Hello Jon & Kate fans! I'm sure even though you love them as much as I do, your kinda tired of hearing that song in your head. You know the one! Don't get me wrong, I love the commercial, but they do show it too much! And while I know they are now confident with the great diverse Monday lineup, there is a new family looking to make some Gosselin cash & get their own show. They are called "The Hayes Family."
You can see the ABC interview to get an idea about this New Jersey family HERE. (You'll see a commercial first). They will be taking out the Duggars for a week to showcase a family that has 2 sets of twins and sextuplets. And while they are in no way the personalities of the Gosselins, they also appear to have their hands full. I was saddened to hear that one of the sextuplets has Cerebral Palsy. You can reads an article about the community rallying around to support and donate what they can HERE. While I applaud TLC for hoping that this family will be loved like the Gosselins, how many do you think can take on becoming celebrities while also being criticized for bringing their children into the spotlight for money? While I would personally do a pony show to get my kids a nicer way of living, the Goselins has been bashed by the trolls for child exploitation. But how is it OK for these families to do the same? And for that matter, how will this impact TLC for being criticized for becoming the "any big family now gets a show" network?
This appears to be a more laid back quiet family with alot of kids. Kids that as you can see from the video are not yet ready to handle big network interviews and are not nearly as polished as the Gosselins. But you will definitely sympathise with this couple after seeing all these kids running around like crazy. I can see that TLC is looking real hard to create a new "Gosselins". But when you see this cute family, one thing is missing: and that's Kate. She drives the rating, the controversy, and the success of their show. And while my preference will always be the real deal Gosselins, I wish this family nothing but the best, and hopefully a hit show with this great family that could perhaps replace the controversial "family values" Duggars.
