Kate Gosselin Bashes Her Parents & Brother On TLC Tell-All — Isn't This Bad For The Kids?

Tue, August 16, 2011 10:18am EDT by 9 Comments

Viewers asked Kate why she never has her parents or brother on her show — and she says it’s because they ‘can’t be trusted’!

Kate Gosselin knows how to carry a grudge. The mom-of-eight shockingly slammed her parents, brother and ex-husband Jon Gosselin on her TLC Kate Plus 8 tell-all on Aug. 15. When her “tweeties” asked her why we never see her family on the show she didn’t hold back.

“My family is less open minded,” Kate said blankly. “I don’t judge what they do so I shouldn’t be judged. My brother burned me pretty bad, he’s in the pile of can’t be trusted.”

Kate is referring to when her brother Kevin Kreider, and his wife Jodi went on a media Kate bashing frenzy. They sold a cover story to Star claiming that Kate was exploiting her children, appeared on the CBS Early Show and sat down with RadarOnline.com.

“We’re speaking out now,” Kevin told CBS. “Because we want to be the voice of our nieces and nephews. We’re seeing it turn-tide, that [the kids] being viewed as a commodity.”

Kate did say that she might consider having a “reunion of sorts” with her parents since her kids “keep asking” about them.

Don’t you feel horrible that the children are constant caught in the cross-fire of Kate’s family drama?

Life is too short for all this hatred. The grandparents should be able to see their grandchildren if they want to. Kate has a lot of growing up to do. I speak from experience, haven’t seen my grandson for 25 years because of a daughter in law like Kate and it’s very hurtful ! Such is life.

**NOTICE** Blood relation is not a guarantee of love and support. Nor does being family = good influence for your children.
Ms Gossling may not be the sweet gentile female that fictional television tells us mothers should be but you can’t ignore the fact that Kate has been there for her children more than anyone else.

Kate says her kids “love the TV crew” and” they are like family”. Well, that’s because they have no access to “real family”. Kate would rather her kids get close to the hired help than their actual family because she can order the help around and fire them if need be.

You got that right. She is using her kids to get her way and get back on TV. I really feel sorry for her children. Kate is very self centered. If she needs money, she ought to sell her expensive car and her big,expensive house and get a car that will hold all her children. And a 4 bedroom house. And does she really need all the nannies she has? And bodyguard? She is living like she’s rich but telling the media how poor she is. Then cutting down her parents and other family members. Can’t she see how she looks to the public? I don’t see other large families having pity party like Kate is having. They just buckle down and do the best that they can. They sure don’t whine about it like she is doing. That’s my opinion.

Just another example of her mental illness. There is something wrong with a person who gets along with NO ONE. And she wants to pursue acting? Dear God…..so she finally admits it HAS been all about her all along. that’s what this show was all about, her getting her foot in the Hollywood door. I hope Hollywood sees her for what she really is.

I felt like kate was trying to get into acting from almost the beginning of Jon and Kate plus 8. There was something about her treatment of others that I found disturbing.

It would be a shame for Hollywood to take her on and blemish upstanding integrity. Especially if there is a chance that she may have a mental illness like Halle Barry , Katherine Zeta-Jones or Mel Gibson – these people should be locked away in an insane asylum like in the good old days..

Kate doesn’t want to have anyone in her life who might make her accountable for her actions. She expects everyone to do what she wants, no questions asked, regardless of what it is. She used her brother and sister in law as unpaid help, just like she did neighbors, family friends and probably her parents. She was never grateful, just looking for what they could give her or do for her to make her life easier. She doesn’t and has never had her children’s best interests in mind.

She just doesn’t get it huh?! This is EXACTLY WHY Katie Irene Kreider just can’t catch a break now. She opens her mouth & digs a DEEP hole with her bullsh!t statements that makes you go, “Hum”
