Oh Jon and Kate…you so crazy. The reality couple are yet again airing their dirty laundry for all to see. Jon Gosselin had just put the brakes on production on Jon and Kate Plus Eight due to his claims the show is “detrimental to his kids”. But Kate, you know she ain’t going to take these kind of accusations lying down or suffer a delay in filming. She, of all people, knows the show must go on. Kate has issued a response to Jon’s apparent change of heart. Kate said:
“I’m saddened and confused by Jon’s public media statements. Jon has never expressed any concerns to me about our children being involved in the show and, in fact, is on the record as saying he believes the show benefits our children and was taping on Friday with the kids. I check in regularly with each of the kids to be sure they want to participate in and continue with the show and will continue to do so. I do the show for my family because I believe it provides us opportunities we wouldn’t otherwise have. Jon used to share that belief until as recently as the day the network announced the name change of the show and indicated that Jon would have a lesser role in the show. It appears that Jon’s priority is Jon and his interests. My priority remains our children and their well being.”
Ouch! I smell a great big battle of he said/she said. The cynical mind may believe it’s a marketing move to drum up some viewers for the next season. The ratings have been dropping and more drama would be an added and profitable plus.
