In random but true news, Eric Roberts, actor, brother of Oscar-winner Julia and father of Emma Roberts, has come out and labeled Kate Gosselin a child abuser.
“I know she's fading from the news, but hopefully someone's still got their eye on the wellbeing[sic] of her kids. Kate Gosselin is a child abuser,” Roberts said.
He expanded on his opinion to the blog Small Town Gosselins, which chronicles Kate and the eight kids she shared with now ex-husband Jon Gosselin.
Eric Roberts is no fan of "cruel horror" known as Kate Gosselin.
Calling Kate a "cruel horror," Eric certainly does not mince words.
“Thank goodness there's film of Kate spanking her kids, and apparently feeling fine about it. I say thank goodness, because behind closed doors makes it that much tougher to stop,” Roberts explained, saying their state of life is an issue.
“They have an awful mother, and a father who doesn't stop her.”“The kids Kate and Jon have are why Kate and Jon have money,” the actor said, noting the kids are short-changed financially. “It would be awful if financial stress added to those kids' problems. The money should be divided 10 ways.”
Although his daughter herself began working at a tender age, now Roberts believes “children are not fully willing participants in anything during childhood.”
However, he disagrees with Jon Gosselin’s remark (during his mea culpa) about making the kids stop filming and believes Jon is taking up the wrong issue:
“I think Jon is being unrealistic. How is that family going to live?”
“The kids could have a great time doing the show if their mom wasn't a cruel horror who is clearly repeating generational abuse. Jon's got his eye on the wrong ball," he said. "The kids, however, should not be forced to do anything.”
His advice for the control freak? “Get out of denial and receive anger management ... Next time she feels herself lifting a hand to harm her children, she should instead make a call to a 12-step program. She's playing the role of good mom. When she stops playing the role as it's written, she should be fired.”
What do you think? Is Kate a child abuser?
