Jon Gosselin’s latest interview with ABC’s Chris Cuomo was supposed to show him in a better light to the public. However, it didn’t turn out quite that way and the worst part about it? His actions are only going to hurt his eight children.
Gosselin’s Good Morning America and prime time’s Family Secrets interviews, were geared to try to help the reality TV dad’s public imagine, but… FAIL.
Jon made some angry comments about Kate and their marriage/pending divorce, and he’s apparently not seeing the big picture: that his actions and words will only upset their eight kids.
Jon talked of how much more he loves his new 22-year-old girlfriend, Hailey Glassman, than he ever loved Kate and how he can’t even stand to sit next to Kate, among other things… all stuff the children will probably one day see. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but now there is a record of their father saying hurtful things about their mother.
Cathy Meyer, a Certified Divorce Couch, Marriage Educator and Legal Investation, who writes for About.com, says Jon is absolutely hurting his kids and doesn’t seem to get that they are suffering through the pain of their parents divorcing.
“Every action he takes and every word he speaks reflects badly on his children and only subjects them to more attention from the media. Why can’t Jon see that?”
Because he’s acting like an idiot right now? He really needs to get a clue and stop trashing Kate. Fine, if he wants to slam her behind closed doors where no one hears him, whatever. But to put it all out, on record, just not cool. And eight small children will be the ones to suffer.
