PHILADELPHIA - Reality TV mom Kate Gosselin went on the offensive Wednesday, after her brother testified before a Pennsylvania state legislative panel that her eight children were mistreated. Gosselin went on Joy Behar’s talk show and slammed Kevin Kreider, her brother, and her sister-in-law, Jodi Kreider. "My brother has made a lot of money off of saying things that are untrue about us," Gosselin said. "I've not allowed them to see my kids for two years. So I'm not quite sure what information they think they may have." Gosselin claims the Kreiders tried to cash in on her fame. "With that kind of trust ruined and knowing that they have made hundreds of thousands of dollars on lies about us, I'm not sure what their goals are, because they were a part of our show and things were fine and dandy then."
Last year, the Kreiders told various media outlets they were kicked off “Jon & Kate Plus 8” after Kate Gosselin found out TLC wanted to compensate the Krieders for appearing on the show. Earlier on Wednesday, state officials said they would not take action against TLC for not obtaining work permits for Jon and Kate Gosselin’s eight children.The Pennsylvania Department of Labor said the producers of the reality TV show did not violate child labor laws. The state investigation found that filming was done without proper permits, but no legal action will be taken against the show’s producers as long as they get permits for future filming. Also, going forward, 15 percent of the gross earnings must be put into a trust for the children. At an unrelated hearing on Wednesday, Kate and Jodi Kreider shocked some in attendance with their claims about how “Jon & Kate” was produced.
Jon Gosselin is moving into his own place near the home he used to share with Kate and their 8 kids. Jon’s lawyer Anthony F. List told RadarOnline.com that Gosselin has “rented a large apartment in Reading PA with several bedrooms” and that “he signed the lease just the other day.” “He’s secured a property in Reading. There’s a lot of room with lots of open space. It’s really beautiful,” List told RadarOnline.com. Last week Jon filed court papers requesting physical custody of the Gosselin kids as well as the right to live in Kate’s guest house. As RadarOnline.com reported, Jon has been living with his brother since breaking up with girlfriend Morgan Christie. Kate’s attorney, Mark Momjian called the filing “procedurely flawed” and told RadarOnline.com that, among other things, Jon hadn’t even listed a current address. Jon’s attorney, clearly annoyed, responded to Momjian’s statements, saying: “Grow up. For obvious reasons, we did not want to put down Jon’s address. It would have created havoc for him, his neighbors and his brother. I think it was an unfair comment for Momjian to make when he knows full well that it has nothing to do with the merit of what I filed.” On Thursday, Momjian continued to articulate his position, saying that Jon should continue to pay child support no matter what Kate is earning now.“I would agree that Jon needs to pay child support,” List told RadarOnline.com. “There’s no question about it…it’s an obligation of both parents. But it has to be based on what their ability to pay is, what their income is. Throughout the entire proceedings with Jon and Kate, there’s never been any information put on the table about either one’s income or expenses.
“Kate has tremendous sources of income and as long as she’s portrayed as this wonderful mother and this flawless golden girl then her value continues to rise.”List says that overall Jon is just trying to “be a good guy.” "He’s not trying to take the kids away from Kate, he’s not trying to destroy the relationship they have with them,” List told RadarOnline.com. “The nice thing is that there have been nice compliments going back and forth with both of them. Kate has said that Jon really loves their children and is a good father. “But they need to get to the issues at hand and stop fighting over things that are tearing them apart and most importantly, tearing the kids apart.”
