Reports have said that Kate Gosselin is worried that Jon might expose her toxic parenting on his own show with Hannah and Collin.
It turns out that she needn't have worried. Jon is against his kids appearing on film, and he doesn't need a reality gig to expose Kate for what she is.
Jon says that Kate is violating a court's decision by having the kids film, all so that she can exploit them for money to fund her lifestyle.
In 2018, the Department of Labor declined to grant Kate the permits that she and TLC wanted.
Why? Because both the department and a judge concluded that it was not in the best interests of her minor children to film for Kate Plus 8.
And yet Kate and the network continued to film Kate's (remaining) minor children, both at home and on location in North Carolina.
Speaking to TheDailyMailTV, Jon Gosselin unloads his frustrations that his ex is breaking rules about their kids just to rake in more money.
"I’m furious," he expresses. "Absolutely furious."
"[The network] didn’t care," Jon Gosselin laments.
"It’s really upsetting that big businesses and big corporations go do whatever they want, against a parent’s legal right," he despairs..
"The judge and the guardian ad litem both agreed that it wasn’t in my children’s best interests to be filmed," Jon points out.
A guardian ad litem is appointed by a judge to evaluate a child's welfare as an outsider who then reports findings to a judge.
Jon continues: "but my ex-wife and TLC had other ideas."
"They put profits and ratings ahead of the well-being of my children," Jon accuses.
He continues furiously: "and filmed illegally without work permits."
"They literally don’t care," Jon says. "They’ll pay the fine."
He hates that "big business will do whatever they want to do because they have the money to pay all the fines."
Any crime or violation that is payable by fine, from parking to filming without a permit, just means legal for rich people. Remember that.
"This is all about money," Jon notes. "This is a fiduciary thing."
He accuses: "This has nothing to do with anything else other than Kate’s lifestyle, not the kids’ lifestyle."
"Go get a job," he indirectly tells Kate. "Support your own family."
"It’s disgusting," he bemoans. "My kids work for her lifestyle."
"Kate does nothing," Jon continues. "Zero. Absolutely nothing."
in September, Jon spoke of how toxic and damaging a household Kate has built for the children still under her "care."
"I do know what [Kate’s] capable of, whether it’s mental or physical [abuse],” Jon stated grimly.
The whole world has known for many years that Kate is a monster. Jon points out that Hannah and Collin left a lot behind just to escape.
“I have two kids in my house who left a whole pile of money behind," he noted.
"They left fame and money and came to my house," he emphasized. "They left it all behind."
He also says that, actually, none of his kids really want to be reality stars.
"They have all said they have to film because they feel they need to provide a lifestyle for their mother,” Jon revealed.
“They don’t want to film," he claimed. "They said they have to film. That’s heartbreaking."
"Why do my kids need to provide for themselves?" he asks. "They’re kids."
That is an extremely fair question.
A lot of terrible parents exploit their children for reality fame. Networks profit from it.
One day, laws need to be passed to prevent this sort of thing, be it Gosselins or Duggars or Teen Moms.
