Kate On The Cover Of People Magazine, Jodi and Kevin Kreider Lower Themselves To Star

Hello Gosselin Fans! I am sad to say I lost the last ounce of respect for the lovely "Aunt Jodi" and her family. Here her husband Kevin makes one comment and Star Magazine publishes the biggest pack of garbage yet. (I'm sorry I deleted your post Denise). I have always respected People to give the most accurate and precise information. I give you the People Magazine link and you make up your own minds. I am glad that Kate is speaking up. I have always been such a strong supporter of hers and after this article I am more determined to do so.

"I don't know that we're in the same place anymore, that we want the same thing," she says quietly. "I've been struggling with the question of 'Who is this person?' for a while. I remember where I was the first time I heard her name. It's one of those things where you can try to make it go away, but there's blaring, red flashing lights."

Kate does have hope, however, that her marriage can be saved. "I will never give up hope that every member of our family can be absolutely happy again," she says.

Should Jon & Kate Stay Together? Take The People.com Poll

You know, every marriage goes through up and down times. No one is exempt from having trouble in their marriage along the way. The difference is: they are on TV every week, they have people in their house 3 days a week taping for their show, they are 'famous.' These things magnfy any little fuss they may have.

I really do feel sorry for them and their whole family. To have all their dirty laundry aired for the whole country to know must be humiliating.

3KMOM said...

BabyMama, do you know where we could e-mail Kate a word of encouragement. The e-mail address on their website just sends u back an e-mail saying the mail boxes are full. I tried the zondervan e-mail as well. Any ideas?

Tatirpdoy said...

I lost all respect for Kevin and Jodi; those things that they said are so messed up, they're utterly ridiculas.

I really hope Jon and Kate can save their marriage; I believe they truly love each other and that this is a rocky road for them right now. Marriages can survive infedelity situations, even ones in the spotlight. Jon needs to get rid of Deanna from his life and realize why he married Kate in the first place and why he fell in love with her.

If they can't save their marriage though (which I really hope they can) then I will always fully be a Kate Supporter. Her own brother isn't supporting her, but her true fans will always have her back.

Cindy said...

Kate can make it on her own, strong woman, motivated, organized, works hard. He still wants to be a child. Evident in the alleged affair. Typical........I hope it is still not true. Only Kate and Jon know. But if he did, he has violated the biggest trust ever between a man and wife, probably the most irreparable. And I don't want to hear that she drove him to it...........he needs to grow up and any of you with that mindset also need to grow up.

Baby Mama said...

If Jodi and Kevin had gone to People Mag. and spoken about their family I would have agreed with them and even respected their decision to speak out. But Kevin speaking to Star?? I'm sorry, but they PAY for their interviews. I said this before, although US weekly doesn't pay for interviews, the DO pay thousands of dollars for videos and photos. Hence Deanna's brother makes money off his grainy phone video of Jon. He didn't do it because he loved his sister. He did it because he's a criminal that needed cash and took the opportunity to score.

I say this because US Weekly's clever wording made it sound like her brother got nothing out of ratting out his sister. Now Jodi and Kevin are speaking out at the WORST possible time. Where were you all this time, so-called fighting for the marriage to stay strong for the sake of the kids. You speak NOW and of all places to a sleaze mag for cash? Again, its so sad that everyone is peaking up now for the money, and never for the sake of a marriage that doesn't have to end here, with haters rejoicing. So strength, show you can make it through this and be a unified family again.

Kate's mailbox has been full for months. Its apparent that she doesn't want to see negativity via e-mail. Keep sending thoughts and prayers, and hopefully she will start reading them or address them directly to Zondervan.

Tiffany said...

My heart goes out to this family right now. I didn't see any of this coming maybe because I'm naive. But, I just hope that they can find a means of working through it all. Kate is a strong woman who can definately make it on her own. I can't imagine how difficult it is to go through this in the public eye though. I just feel so bad for them. I guess all I can do is pray that what is meant to happen will happen for their family.

supermom said...

man, i hate to see this. i sure hope they can work through this. makes me sad. dump the show if it is going to ruin your marriage. geesh!

Heather said...

I am a big Kate supporter and am surprised with this news. I can't imagine everything was hunky-dory when they decided to buy that house, renew their vows, etc. I'm surpised Kate did it.

As far as Jon cheating, I'm not really suprised, but his outrage over not being able to be normal is stupid. It's his show that is getting him the house, the new car, trips, etc. A 23-year-old was worth throwing all that away, not to mention your marriage? It's unbelievable. Because the show is over now and without the show is Kate really going to be as popular? I doubt it.

Cindy said...

Personally, I want a link to the clothing line at Walmart. All I get when I google is the trash talk. I am tired of it already. Let them work it out in private.

thesuncameup said...

I'm SO glad I found this blog
the "Anti-Gosselins without pity"! I hated that blogspot with everything and even though hating someone for having their opinions isn't the "christian" thing to say or think, I really do hate them.
I couldn't believe that someone could jump on the bandwagon of a blog that is so hateful and critical of people.
I don't think Jon & Kate slave-labor their children.
I don't think their children are unhappy.
I'm able to step out of the box from media and television and realize the genuine from the ingenuine.
And I'm just so happy that there are people like you all that stick up for such a family even through all their flaws and through all of these troubles they're currently facing!
Keep up the GOOD!

<333

kateisblahblah said...

I don't get it. Last week Kate said they were going to handle everything privately and NOW she is doing an interview with People?

If you want to keep it in private then keep it in private. If you want to talk about it fine just make up your mind.

3KMOM said...

I want to see them work it out as well. I would hate to see it all be thrown away after they have faced so much together. It's not an impossible situation because nothing is impossible for God. I will continue to pray for them and that their hearts turn towards each other instead of away from each other.

BEE said...

There has been no or very little mention of their reliance on God. Where does their faith lie in all of this? Having heard them speak and read their book, I would of assumed that they would be making reference to how they are leaning on God during this difficult time. I truly hope that they are!

I hope that the title of the People Magazine article is more hype then reality. Time and time again the Gosselins have made a point to say how they will always be together, through thick and thin. They have talked about how vital God's Word is in their lives. I pray that divorce is NOT an option for them!

Let me just preface my next statement by saying I am a complete fan/supporter of the Gosselin family! However, if the statement from Kevin is actually legitimate, then I have to say that I don't totally disagree with him (disagree with the magazine he went to and the timing!!)! There has to come a point when Jon and Kate end this public ride that they are on...their show can not and will not go on forever!

If they are struggling as the tabloids and even they are claiming, then perhaps they really DO need to take another look at what their priorities are.

WHAT are they willing to lose for money and fame?

Praying that they will seek the Lord's guidance!

Shelly said...

My support lies with Kate. It always has. I feel some of the stories are hype and others might have some truth to them. The article Kate did for People, I would have to believe. Kate did say last week that they were working things out privately, but when your slapped in the face with proof of a cheating husband, then I think you have no choice but to speak up. At least she did it with People and not a rag mag. I do wish they could work their problems out, but if they don't, Kate will make it. She is a smart cookie. She put herself out there and the peeps bit. Good for you Kate! Kate is a strong and hard willed lady and I have no doubt that she will prevail.

DeAnne said...

It seems a little odd to me that Kate has done many credible interviews lately, i.e. Larry King, 700 Club, Today Show, and yet chose to speak to People about all of that??
Just doesn't seem to jive with me. Especially after her statements of "dealing with it privately".
I'm just going to wait til I hear it from her mouth either on a live interview or addressing it on the new season until I really believe all theses magazine articles!

MrsRef said...

If they want privacy, then STOP giving interviews. I personally think they took God out of the equation a while ago. I know He doesn't approve of bearing false witness and adultery. Hope all their fame and fortune was worth it - doesn't seem so to me.

Breedings said...

I have lost a lot of respect for the Gosselins. I have always watched the show and liked it. I have NEVER liked how Kate treated Jon and how Jon acted like a whipped puppy. I think after awhile, being talked down to and treated badly takes its toll. That does not mean I think Kate deserves everything she gets, nor do I think Jon deserves everything he gets. This is no longer about a family and their struggles to raise their 8 kids. It's now about the drama....Kate never being home, Jon being out with some kid, bodyguards, whether to divorce or whatever. I am sickened that the kids will someday see all of this and I'm sad that Jon and Kate let it come to this level. At some point, your family should be the priority, not books signings or going to to a club at 2am. It's sad for all involved. This is just MY opinion, so please don't yell at me :)

The*GosselinGarb*Finder said...

My prayers are with both Kate an Jon, whatever the situation may be to be in either person's shoes must not be a happy place right now, at the end of they day they are human, in all the negativity I am proud to be apart of fellow fans that continue to show their support and kind words for the family. It is really troubling to see that family members have decided to jump on the spite train, its like "Wow their own Aunt & Uncle are throwing them under the bus" What the heck?! How can Kevin and Jody find this appropriate for the better of their own nieces and nephews under the current circumstances? I don't care if they're estranged, that is really low. I personally do not look to pick apart their personal relationship with God, only God knows each of their hearts. At a certain point maybe the celebrities rely soley on the advise of their "people"? Whether it's interviews or statements..Just my 2 cents there, I kind of agree with the poster that brought up Kate saying one thing and then doing another. But her personal matters are on display to the country (on a different level than the show of course)so maybe she just doesn't have a say at this point? I have no idea I won't hold it against her, God knows the woman's face is plastered on every grocery checkout line, under a humbling headline.

Angie said...

Why would Jodi and Kevin go to star? I mean if they were really worried about them they would help, not make this situation worse. There are better ways to help Jon and Kate then to "full the fire." I personally think they are in trouble and just pray the two of them can do what is best for them and their family.

Teresa said...

I have always been interested in hearing Jodi and Kevin's feelings about their relationship with J&K, but why now? And why to Star?

LovetheGosselinKIDS said...

On another note--I do believe that Aunt Jodi and Kevin are telling the truth, but they've picked the worst time to come out. And why Star??? They went about it the wrong way but I do believe that they do have the kids' best intentions at heart. What the two of them are saying is nothing new, the rumors have been circulating for months, let alone Aunt Jodi's sister's blog that confirmed everything. I pray that Kate will finally decide to stop doing interviews all over the country and go home to her babies, hug them, and let them know that everything will be ok. Most assuredly, Mady and Cara know what's going on. They're not shut out from the rest of the world. I'm sure they need their parents now like never before.

Reenie said...

I have NO respect for Jodi or Kevin anymore.
Its obvious that Jon & Kate are having problems.
They go to a rag mag & give an interview??
I find it strange that Jodi was very on board with teh show idea even allowing HER OWN children to be filmed. Going to Oprah & being totally involved.
It wasnt until (supposedly) Kate said she didnt want Jodi to be paid to be involved. Then she was against it?? So who is in it for the money?
I think that SO many people have enjoyed their show & that for their privacy sake they should make this season their last .

Liz said...

If it is true that TLC needed to compensate Aunt Jodi for her appearances on the show and if it is true that Kate (or Jon) said no, I totally think that's okay. I think it would be exploiting the kids if they were "supporting" multiple families through the show. As it is now, it's their family, for better or for worse. Kate always says that they talk about it as a family and decide.

My respect for Kevin and Jodi goes right out the window when they talk to the Star.

I pray that Jon & Kate are okay. I don't understand how they go from renewing their vows to this mess so quickly. But I know that fame, power, and money can change things. I hope it's all lies and hype and ultimately makes them stronger and their show more successful.

Baby Mama said...

3KMOM & Roxanne~ I will not be linking or posting any video's of the Kreider's. Why? Because now that they are getting PAID is the only time they are speaking up. Whatever they say therefore has no credibility to me. Whatever they say is only adding to 4 yes 4 magazine covers this week. I already asked the question as to why they come out now. Why slander this family now? Because your still mad you weren't paid? Weren't you taking care of the children because you love them and wanted to help Kate? If you love Kate so much, why are you slamming her now? I thought you were supposed to be loving and caring for the children? Are you protecting them and loving them now when your on a rag magazine talking smack about them? How would the twins feel that your telling all these stories about their parents? Would you like that done to your own children. Maddy loved Benny so much, you pretty much secured that little girl never seeing him again. But you got paid, so it doesn't matter! I thought you didn't care about money?

From what was said on other blogs they were offered compensation later and refused. Why? Because it came with a confidentiality clause, and Jodi refused to sign it in case she hit pay dirt on a scandal regarding the family. Guess she won out after all. I put Deanna's brother and Jodi now in the same company.

Reenie said...

I totally agree w/ you BabyMama & I applaud you for not posting the Jodi & Kevin video.
By doing this interview they are blowing this sky high now. This will only make things worse for the kids.
On every interview Kate has done she has never confirmmed or denied his affair, she said they were dealing with it & will take it day by day.
I have read online that TLC is trying to redo & incorporate this into their season opener show?
This is probably just a rumor as well.

qtrfan said...

Baby Mama said: Why slander this family now?
**********************************
The definition of slander is a false statement. Obviously Jon and Kate have made a lot of false statements that are now turning up true.

I guess we will wait and see what is true and what is not......just staying.

mamaholly said...

my heart is breaking for the Gosselin kids....I hope that God will give them ALL the strength to weather this storm.

E Mac said...

I don't approve of what Kevin and Jodi did by going to Star, but there assumptions being made of them that noone knows if it is true or not. Just like we don't know what is really happening with Jon and Kate, we don't know what really happened between Jodi/Kevin and Jon/Kate and never will.

Breedings said...

I had another thought....There are NO innocent parties here. The kids are going to suffer the worst part of this whole thing if they divorce. Kate is trying to play victim and Jon is acting like a child. Kate and Jon both made choices that were not for the best. You don't have to live in that house to know that. If you have watched this show at all or read any interviews Kate has given, they are "I" and "my" and "me" comments. She is gone A LOT for these book signings and she is lying on national talk shows saying she and Jon are handling this privately...she's on the cover of People. Jon stepping out, adultery or not, he stepped out with some 23 year old girl to a club, flirted with some girls at a bar and is not happy! You can tell he's not happy. He wants his privacy and Kate just harps all over him. I watched an old episode and he said lunch picnic and she corrected him like a child, "picnic lunch"...like she always does. I'm not saying he's perfect but after years of criticism and being treated like a child, it's not a wonder he's out at 2am and when you are never at home and all you are filmed doing is housework and chores and talking on the phone, complaining...what do you think it going to come at you? Negativity breeds negativity. As far as Jon goes, if you are unhappy, there are other things to do besides go out to a bar with some girl. He made horrible choices and got caught and now he's paying. They will all pay. I think if they continue something as far as the show goes, it will be something about either how they are working on their marriage....i.e. counseling or divorce and become the Kate show. I think it will no longer be Jon and Kate plus 8. Sorry....I went on and on.

Cathy said...

OK..Even my G thinks this is wrong the way they live. My comment..If I could be paid hundred of thousands or millions to stay home with my kids and travel..BRING IT ON... Second, there was comment about Kate spending less time with the kids to promote here career.. Isn't that we all do and for less might I say. Jon worked for years but that was okay, but now that Kate is "working" she is made out to be a terrible person. If I was traveling around by myself I would want a "body guard" too. Whatever is going of with them, let them figure it out..but slamming Kate I cannot stand. Those kids and probably the show would not be if it weren't for Kate. There I feel better..Go Kate Go and Jon too just get it worked out. Everyone says oh they have 8 kids.. it doesn't matter if they had 1, it's all the same.

arabella said...

How does this help the children? What did Kevin and Jodi hope to accomplish? If my brother sold me out to a tabloid he is the last person I would ever allow my kids to be around. How disloyal can you get? Kate and Jon did not do anything illegal. If her brother thought the kids were being abused in any way, get your proof to the proper authorities. You don't pimp yourself out and sell out your sister.

This is not to say that I agree with all that Jon and Kate do. I do think they should pull the plug on the show if they are going thru marital problems because of being in the spotlight. Your marriage should come first. I don't think they are exploiting their kids. I don't think they are mean to the boys and only love Hannah. Those accusations are ridiculous. All the stupid -gates that are talked about elsewhere are eye rollers, for sure.

But if your spouse is not comfortable in the spotlight anymore, pull the plug. It's not worth it.

Tatyana said...

Can I just say, that if all these people care so much about Jon and Kate and the kids and wish them the best, why would they broadcast gossip and "dirty laundry" to the entire world? I understand if you have an issue with a family member, tell them in private, dont act concerned to a gossip magazine. Personally I'd be pissed if my brother or sister shared my marital details even to a friend. All these people want is another 15 minutes in the spotlight..lets get my face in the frame..and this is a wonderful opportunity to do so.

I honestly don't want to hear any new "news" (if thats what you want to call it), and just wait for the new season patiently.

MrsRef said...

Isn't Kate appearing on the cover of People Magazine contributing to the blowing things sky high. What about the Today Show, Rachel Ray, Larry King. She could put an end to this - she just keeps putting out statements. She really needs to go home to her children. I don't discuss my marital situation with co-workers, family members or the press. Parents are supposed to advocate for their kids but J&K are not. She is still out traveling the country promoting her scrapbook.

Panda said...

Kevin said in his interview that Jon told him that he had to tap into his 401k just to survive - that right there is the first clue that these idiots are lying. Jon has a brand new car and lives in a million dollar home. Are you kidding me? Struggling to survive?

JODI AND KEVIN ARE CRITICIZING the Gosselins for doing it all for the money WHEN THEY THEMSELVES WERE PAID FOR THEIR INTERVIEW! I can't figure out which is worse - going to the media to talk about your relatives private lives for money or being a fan and BELIEVING this trash.

Kevin and Jodi accomplished NOTHING through this interview other than a husky paycheck and an increased media frenzy - all the while increasing the kids suffering. :(

If the rumors about Jon and Kate are true, I applaud them for keeping it a secret to protect their 8 - making this into a big deal only hurts the kids. :(

Baby Mama said...

qtrfan~ It is only YOUR opinion whether or not Jon or Kate have made false statements, we may never know whats true or not. Jodi & Kevin claim the have been talking to the family for months. I thought all the haters said they never talked to them after they were on the show? Again, will we ever know the truth?

Its a catch 22. If Kate wasn't on the cover of People, every person in blog land would be trying to make assumptions on how they thought she felt. From what has been quoted she is honest in how she feels. It changes from day to day and that's not a lie. People are allowed to change their minds and do what they feel is best for them.

karrieann said...

so i am confused... is this blog only pro-kate? or is it pro-jon as well? pro-gosselin kids?
it seems to me that there is more interest in defending kate than anyone else in that family...

arabella said...

To bad GWOP won't pull apart Kevin and Jodi's words like they do Kate's. First Jodi says she hasn't spoken to Kate in over a year. Then, when talking about how Kate locked Jon out of house, during the last year, Jodi says Kate told her Cara and Mady know. How would Jodi know this if she hasn't spoken to Kate?

It does not help the kids to talk to the tabloids.

qtrfan said...

Baby Mama said it was only my opinion what is true or not. I would beg to differ on at least one item - Jon's affair was denied, denied, denied. And now Kate has pretty much admitted the affair in her People interview.

What else are they lying about?

Baby Mama said...

karriann~ I'm sure you already know that this is a fan site for the entire family. I think it's fair to say we have defended a lot of what Jon had to say regarding the love he has for his family and how he was wrong doing what he did. We all pretty much feel the same way regarding this horrible very public situation. My thoughts and prayers has always been for the ENTIRE family.

Please note: I'm back to moderating my blog because of the nasty trolls that are writing some very hurtful things. I'm really upset about this because I'm not on the computer often. A lot of you are writing me asking why your posts haven't gone through. If it's attacking any member of this family in any way, forget it. I don't know why I have to constantly repeat that this is a Fan Site. That's not to say if you have something productive to say I won't publish it. Just please no attacking or nastiness, or feel free to comment elsewhere.....

Shelly said...

Baby Mama,
Here is link to radaronline. I don't know if you want to post it or not but Deanna's brother is a convicted felon. He was part of a murder for hire plot with a drug dealer. That makes him really credible. LOL. http://www.radaronline.com/exclusives/2009/05/exclusive-jon-kate-tipster-was-involved-murder

SchmeckyGirl said...

One thing I noticed in Kate's quote "I will never give up hope that every member of our family can be absolutely happy again,".

That can be interpreted as hope for their marriage, but since that's not what she said I didn't take it that way.

It can also mean she hopes that she can be happy without Jon in her life and he can be happy without her in his life.

And that their kids can be happy without two parents living in the same house should they divorce.

I didn't think that statement gave much hope for their family at all. Very sad.

SchmeckyGirl said...

I too was shocked that Jodi and Kevin did this interview, however, maybe they were just tired of seeing Jon portrayed as the only one at fault for all this bad press about their family.

I think they have to be telling the truth. They never said that Kate was having an affair. They said that Jon suspected she was.

Remember, they can be sued for slander... why would they take that risk?

CBB said...

ok - love the whole family & only want what's best for all of them as the regulars of this site know. But, my initial reaction to the People Magazine cover...I don't think it has the kids best interest at heart. Obviously I haven't read it yet, and I'm not in Kate's shoes, but just the image of Mom looking sad with the word split next to it...not something I would want my kids to see. Last week I felt it was very noble to keep the already scheduled PR appts but my gut says going to People with this cover story, not as noble. It may seem different when the entire article is released but the implications of this cover don't seem like a healthy image for the kids to see someday. Just my opinion.
This entire situation just makes me very sad.

emily said...

arabella:
The article says that Kevin stated that HE had not talked to kate in a year, Jodi said nothing about not talking to her. Also, Jodi states that the locking out occured several times...no real time line. Twisting of words to fit what you want?

Baby Mama said...

Shelly~ OMG! I was floored when I read that. So basically all he told the truth about was that WAS on probation! (lol) This is all so ridiculous and sad. I could smell the old wheels turning in this guys head that reeks of desperation. I'm wondering if whatever dollar amount he got was worth running his sister out of the house and ruining his family. And YES HE WAS PAID. Don't let the quote "we don't pay for interviews" fool you. Its rumored that the phone video alone was worth a few grand. (I hate rumors!)

3KMOM said...

I hope that when Kate goes home late tonight or tomorrow that they can work on their marriage and fall back in love. I read the whole people article on GWOP and it's just really sad. For them to have gone through all of this to have children together and to have been blessed the way they have, it is so heartbreaking to see this. I hope they hold on.

BEE said...

This is so incredibly sad!!

I CAN NOT believe that Kevin and Jodi gave that interview!! How very hurtful!

They claim that they have not spoken with the Gosselins in a year...then how exactly do they KNOW this firsthand information about how Kate said it was "Over" six months ago?

It is clear that their motives are NOT pure in doing this interview! It is one thing to be very concerned, to try and discuss their concerns with the Gosselins, to pray for them or even possibly go to their Pastor and ask for guidance on how to handle the situation, but to choose to go public is absolutely ridiculous!

If I had to put money on why they "really" have come forward it is because they are bitter about not getting paid and are angry that they are no longer part of the Gosselins lives.

Money does strange things to people!!

I will continue to pray for this ENTIRE family!! I truly feel for all of the children involved!

3KMOM said...

Jon & Kate Plus 8
Turning 5 & The Future!
TV-G

When we last saw Jon & Kate, they were on a different page. Where are they now? In this one-hour, up close and personal season premiere, side by side Jon and Kate address what the future holds for their family.

Thompson 3 said...

Okay kids, I just read the entire People article, and it doesn't sound good at all. So sad for this family. I have been a huge fan and just hate to see it happening. It was interesting to me that People was very pro-Kate- they wrote the article very much in her favor, which is interesting because most of the media wants to bash her.

Gonna be an interesting season 5! Thanks BabyMama, for all your hard work and providing a place for FANS to hang out! :<}

Baby Mama said...

3KMOM~ Thanks so much for the brand new update. I changed the front of the blog to reflect it. I'm so excited and happy to say I see a small light at the end of the long tunnel!

jk8fan said...

OMG my sister told me that Jon and Kate are now seperated, she heard it on E! News so I don't know if this is true if it is, i'm gonna cry!

Shelly said...

Baby Mama, Is that to funny or what? Did you read the court documents? Everything was listed right down to the indictment from the Grand Jury. I went back to the picture of Jon with his car and you know, that could be Jason with him. If in fact Jon is hanging with this crowd, Kate should be furious. These people are nothing but the mafia from PA.

But, I will pray for them. Hope they can get all this straight and live their lives with those beautiful children, forever.

Brooke said...

I have not read the whole people mag article yet but I feel very sad for this family. What's hard for me to understand is that devorse is being talked about, they just renewed thier vows to show thier kids they will always be together. If my parents got a devorse after a vow renewal it would be very hard for me to trust my parents, as a child, I would be very hurt.

I got on Aunt Jodi's sister blog, its absolutly discusting. On the blog Jodi's sister said it was so important she came forth with the truth because Jodi feels like her parents don't have the childrens best interest at heart and they need an advocate. I think parents (esp. Jon and Kate) do have the childrens bet interst at heart, and I hope it keeps that way.

I know marriages can be pulled back together it just takes a lot of hard work and determination. I am still rooting for Jon and Kate to stay together and make all this work, they both just need to make some changes.

gosselinreporter said...

The only thing I can continue to stand by is that I hope the kids get through this being hurt the least amount possible. They don't deserve anything bad that might come out of this and they're just so cute and awesome, I hope they get out of this just fine :)

troopjpw said...

As much as it pains me to say this, I wish they would stop filming and take some much needed time away with just their family...no cameras, no babysitters. Just them. They need to remember where they came from and who will always be there for them....their family. I wish the best for this family, and hope that something positive can come out of all of this negativity.

Denise~ I couldn't post your link with the People article because it's from a hate site. Sorry. If you have it somewhere else let me know.

Could someone tell me if BOTH Jon & Kate will be on GMA tomorrow morning. Someone sent me an e-mail about it. Let me know!

I have seen two blog postings saying the same thing BabyMama, I guess we'll see.

Hi there Babymama~ During Gray's Anatomy there was a GMA teaser showing Kate with Hannah and Jon (old clip) from last October and they announcer was just saying :

Tommorrow on Good Morning America "Gosselin Marriage Contraversy"

Didn't say "Kate/Jon will be on the show" I think it's just a hot topic type thing because they are also currently asking viewers to write in with their own personal stories of "marriages on the brink"

Just watched GMA and it was all fluff. Just rehashing all the tabloid stuff and asking if we've all been duped because of Jodi and Keven saying it's been over for a while. It showed clips of their interview. But no Jon and Kate.

Jodi & Kevin admitted on their ridiculous videos that they DID in fact receive payment from TLC even though she did not want to sign any contracts. Kevin went straight to Kate's house, and asked her about why they weren't getting paid. But TLC did in fact, pay them. Kevin's own words were "yeah $3,300 bucks or whatever!" And then Jodi quickly added "but it was never about the money!" YEAH right! Didn't Julie say over and over on her blog that they never got paid? Kevin then said Kate "felt it was too awkward" and no longer had them on the show.

I apologize if this is a repeat post. I think I might have posted this in the wrong area....Anyway I just have to say, I'm so glad I found your site. Finally people with some compassion and realness. And yes, BALANCE! A few days ago I came upon the blog Gosselins Without Pity and decided to post... As I read over the various posts I was taken with how one-sided everything was. There were virtually NO other viewpoints other then "we hate Kate and she deserves to be punished." They actually say that. Among other worse things I won't even print. I am certainly not Jon or Kates biggest fans right now. I do not approve of the choices they are making and I am heartbroken for their precious children. I do not condone either Jon or Kates behavior. But as I wrote in my post to GWOP: None of us really know what's going on. The show, the magazines...They are edited. All we know are rumors. We are not privy to every single moment of the Gosselin life, good or bad. I believe we can make a greater impact by showing a little kindness and compassion. By not resorting to the very behavior we say we are condemning. None of us are perfect. I'm sure not. And whether you hate Jon and Kate or feel sympathy and compassion as I do, we should all be allowed to voice our opinions. That's what makes America...America. When I wrote my post asking The GWOP posters for a little kindness and compassion...For some much needed balance... I was ripped to shreds. Then when I tried to respond to those comments the moderators refused to publish it. I wrote a letter asking why and received a response that made me sit back and say...Wow! Unbelievable! Basically GWOP moderators said: We will not post any opinions that are not the majority, that do not agree with the moderators viewpoints and that do not bash Jon and Kate...I have the copies if anyone would like to see them....The point of the GWOP blog is clear: Destroy the Gosselins at all costs. They should be ashamed of themselves. One of the things I love about blogs is hearing different opinions. I learn something every day from those who are different. The GWOP blog supports censorship and intolerance. Something I just can't abide. Something that should make us all very concerned. If anyone has the time please go to the GWOP site and read some of the posts. They really need a more balanced viewpoint and maybe you'll have better luck. GWOP is one way, one view...all the time. And in my humble opinion? That's just wrong!
Thank you for having a site that is balanced and fair.
