Kate Gosselin Won't Talk To Jon's Girlfriend. Experts Warn It's Unhealthy For The Kids!

Mon, December 6, 2010 6:08pm EST by 8 Comments

Even though Jon Gosselin has been dating Ellen Ross for eight months, his ex-wife Kate still refuses to officially meet her! “Kate needs to drop all of her bad feelings,” Dr. Jeff Gardere tells us.

Kate Gosselin has only seen her ex-husband’s current girlfriend Ellen Ross in courtrooms and briefly during custody drop offs. The 35-year-old mother of eight (10-year-old twins Cara and Mady and 6-year-old sextuplets Joel, Collin, Aaden, Hannah, Leah, and Alexis) has refused to officially meet Ellen and gives her the cold shoulder on the rare occasion when the two have come face to face. Is Kate just bitter or jealous? Family therapist Dr. Jeff Gardere says there may be more to it.”It’s not unusual in divorces for someone to act this way towards their ex’s new partner,” Dr. Gardere, who consuls parents on the Vh1’s Dad Camp, tells HollyBaby.com. “There is a lot of bitterness there and that can be hard to see, even if that relationship is long over.”

Kate is suing Jon for child support

“She may not take the relationship between them seriously,” he adds. “In Kate’s mind she could think that Ellen is just passing through and doesn’t have any real significance.”

But Ellen, 23, regularly interacts with the Gosselin kids, sometimes on a one-on-one basis without Jon, therefore Kate’s attitude can be very dangerous. “Kate needs to drop all of her bad feelings and she must meet her now!” insists Dr. Gardere. “This woman has responsibilities with Kate’s kids and as a mom she needs to know who this woman is, even if she thinks it’s her enemy!”

Kate left the kids with a teen babysitter for days. Jon is furious!

What Kate isn’t thinking about is how her behavior will affect her kids. Dr. Gardere says she is unknowingly creating an unhealthy and confusing environment for them. “The kids will get the message that it’s considered bad to like this woman and that creates divided loyalty and they will end up feeling guilty,” he explains.

Kate, for the sake of your kids, swallow you pride and meet Ellen! You don’t have to love her, but you have to acknowledge her and accept that she is a part of the kids’ lives. What do you think HollyMoms?

And who ever reads and believes these trash articles about Kate G are as pathetically ignorant as the writers are demented. IF and thats a big IF any of this IS true?? SO WHAT! Kate does not want to meet ANOTHER of Jon’s new “girlfriends” – (“GIRLFRIEND” not wife) hardly makes her a bad Mother. Lets hear from this so called “psychologist” about the detrimental effects on children whose Father CHEATED, then left them and their Mother for another woman because HE couldn’t deal with the responsibility of raising EIGHT young children!! Hm, doesn’t have a job, doesn’t pay child support, left his wife to raise 8 children alone, a different girlfriend every year. I’d love to hear what this “psychologist ” has to say about a Father who can’t seem to keep any woman in his life for long, but allows the girlfriends to become involved in his young childrens lives?? “Ellen, 23, regularly interacts with the Gosselin kids, sometimes on a one-on-one basis without Jon, therefore Kate’s attitude can be very dangerous.” No, it isn’t Kate’s attitde thats “dangerous”! What is dangerous is a Father who would leave his children with a 23 year old GIRLFRIEND – ” on a one to one without the Father present” Lets hear a “real psychologists” view on how healthy it is for children to meet all of these different “girlfriends” in Jon’s life.
Hm, I wonder how long a 23 year old would last trying to raise someone elses EIGHT children!!
Jon G. is irresponsible, selfish and immature.
I agree with you Tina. Bonnie Fuller is a sick woman.

This is one messed up story! Why aren’t we looking at thing’s from Kate’s point of view? Jon is a terrible father and a coward. Kudos to Kate for being such an incredible mother and taking care of these 8 kids all by herself and doing a damn good job with it while her husband backs out and starts sleeping with bimbo after bimbo. I hope someday that I can be a strong woman like Kate and I aspire to the mother that she is! Kate thinks of what’s best for her kids 24/7 and Jon is just worried about 20+ year old girls. Ah, such a mess. Jon is such a jerk, and I hope Kate gets the happiness she deserves. And I agree with the comments above about this article…what the hell?

Even putting aside the fact that Ellen may be participating in selling these nasty stories to Hollybaby and other outlets, Ellen is only Jon’s girlfriend. One he has been with for only slightly longer than he was with Hailey Glassman.

If they are still together in a year or they get married, that is a different story. I think Kate has a right to keep her distance at this point. And I don’t think she is jealous either.

Kate will always been alone, no man will ever want her unless she pays them and no woman will ever be a loyal friend to her because she’s a biotch who uses people. Team8+J&E!

What a stupid article. This woman sold KG and her children out to all of the media outlets for money, and posted on hate blogs about KG. No way should KG ever give this fame seeker the time of day. She is trying to move in this womans home and take over her family. Gawd what a f-up mess.

How healthy is it for the kids that Ellen interacts with the hate blogs against Kate? Ellen stuck her big nose in Kate’s business calling for a boycott of the show. Ellen is a Khater and doesn’t care about those children at all.

You are sick woman Bonnie Fuller.

If Kate is as good a mother as she says, one would think she would definitely interacted with Ellen by now if only to see who her children are spending their time with.
