This just in to the Showbiz Tonight newsroom–Kate Gosselin has just sent us this statement responding to Jon’s attempts to get TLC to stop filming their reality show.
"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."
So what do you think? Is Jon looking out for the best interests of his children or do you think he is just mad because he got fired from the show? How about Kate? Do you think she is just trying to save the show from being cancelled?
