RadarOnline.com: Jon Gosselin says he recently lost another court battle to keep his children off TLC and says some of his children are struggling with emotional and behavioral issues. In a wide-ranging and surprising message that the ex-reality TV star Twittered on Friday he revealed that he went to court on October 13, to remove his children from television."The judge respectfully denied my plea, and granted filming rights to their mother," Jon wrote. Jon settled a court case with the Discovery network last year after they sued him for breach of contract. At that time he also said he wanted his children off TV, even though just months earlier he had they enjoyed being on TV. Now Jon has let loose, claiming he can't find a job, partially blaming TLC's contract for that, and charging that some of his children are suffering emotional problems from having their lives made public.
Here is Jon's entire Tweet: "As you may or may not be aware, I have been working for some time to remove my children from television. I do not believe being on TV is beneficial to any of them. They are no longer toddlers that are oblivious to what is going on around them. They are now six and ten, in school and desperately in need of a normal life. "Each of them has experienced negative effects of having their lives so public. Some are struggling with emotional and/or behavioral issues. My goal for my children is for them to have a normal childhood, and gain back their much deserved privacy. This is not about money, this is about my children. No amount of money is worth the price my children are paying. You cannot put a price on childhood. Money comes and goes, but you only have one childhood.
"For those questions about money and support, I can say I am supporting my children to the best of my ability. All parties involved know the truth about this. I am and have been actively seeking employment. I have been barred from accepting entertainment deals that would generate income for my family due to contractual obligations. I am also actively looking for a job outside of the entertainment industry and so far, have not secured a position. In the mean time, I have been focusing on spending time with my children and providing a safe, stable, normal and private environment for them! "On October 13, 2010, I went to court to act in the best interest of my children- to remove them from television. The judge respectfully denied my plea, and granted filming rights to their mother. I honor the judge’s decision, but I do not support it. I will not stop fighting to remove my children from television. It is not a child’s job to support themselves, or a lifestyle, they need to be kids. I would like to apologize to my friends, family, and especially my children for not taking a stand earlier in my life and not questioning my decisions to have our lives documented and displayed. I will have to answer to my children for the rest of my life. I will have to live with this guilt the rest of my life. I am truly sorry!
Kate's Gosselins Mom Slams Jodi Saying She's Jealous & Greedy: RadarOnline.com
Kate Gosselin’s mother rushed to her defense, defending her daughter from vicious attacks on the Internet and slamming Kate’s sister-in-law 'Aunt Jodi' [Jodi Kreider], Posting on a website that had a large number of Kate detractors (and supporters), Kate’s mom Charlene Kreider blasted Aunt Jodi and her sister Julie for their criticism of Kate. Many people questioned if the person posting the comments was indeed Kate’s mom, but RadarOnline.com has confirmed that it is. A person extremely close to Charlene told RadarOnline.com: “Yes, it’s her. She posted the material and couldn’t stand to see Kate attacked any more.”
Kate’s mom jumped into a discussion about Aunt Jodie and her sister Julie attacking the reality TV star. Jodie once was on the show but was let go. She wanted to be paid for her appearances, but that didn’t happen. Jodie then began blasting the show as exploiting the Gosselin children, and she was joined by her sister Julie. Jodie “and Julie are not nice people,” Kate’s mom wrote. “Jodie just loved being on tv and milked it for all that it was worth. When she couldn’t be paid to be on the show her next move was to claim it was harmful to the kids to be on TV!” She also blasted her son, Jodie’s husband Kevin, who joined in the shut-down-the-show movement. “Since they couldn’t be on tv anymore, they tried to get the show shut down—that’s called jealousy,” she wrote.Charlene continued that Kate is a “great mom” who always puts her kids first.
"Regarding Julie and Jodie I can tell you that they would NEVER say they were wrong–I know them personally of course–Jodie being my daughter-in-law and i have been around Julie MANY times over the years. I will defend my daughter, Kate before my daughter-in-law. Jodie has been very unkind to me over the years. She and Julie ARE NOT nice people. The GWOPers think Jodie hung the moon–they are very misinformed. They have said that SHE should raise Kate’s kids because she is SO wonderful!! Jodie just LOVED being on tv and milked it for all it was worth!! When she couldn’t be paid to be on the show her next move was to claim it was harmful to the kida to be on tv!! Hmmmm..funny how it wasn’t harmful to the kids during the time SHE was on the show!! Suddenly it was harmful so she (AND my son) found another way to get in front of the camera and make money–be a child advocate!! And since they couldn’t be on tv anymore, they tried to get the show shut down–that’s called jealousy!!
OK I guess my rant is over–the whole thing still makes me very mad. Kate is a great mom–loves her kids more than anyone or anything and would do anything for them. I know this firsthand, people, so please stop tearing her down!! I am not saying this to the people on IW–I know you are on Kate’s side. I guess I am just venting! If people like Pennmommy would use all that energy for a GOOD cause, just think how much better our world would be!!! Just sayin’….. “
Jodi and Kevin Kreider were the first to reveal that Kate and Jon’s marriage was over. But they then made a few other national appearances, slamming Kate and the show and were widely criticized as hypocrites. Many of the other people on the site immediately sided with Kate’s mother, typified by this one comment: “Mom of KT, thank you for sharing some of your feeling with us. You have opened up many people’s hearts here to what has been a very difficult journey for you. We do hold all of you in our prayers, but you put your troubles in the God’s hand and he always has the right answers for all of us.”
