It’s not just their dad, Jon Gosselin that reality TV mom Kate Gosselin, doesn’t want her children to have a relationship with: Kate’s own sister revealed she hasn’t seen the family in over six years because Kate severed all connections to the non-famous relatives.
Kate Gosselin‘s sister, Kendra Wilber, spoke out after years of silence about her Jon & Kate Plus 8 relatives, revealing that she hasn’t seen the twins, 13, or sextuplets, 9, in about six years because Kate has cut off all ties with her children’s extended family. The kids’ dad, Jon Gosselin fears that his ex-wife is isolating the kids from the real world, and the kids’ aunts worry they will one day be heartbroken by the lack of contact.

Kate lives in very close proximity to her sister Kendra, but Kendra explains she has no idea what is going on with her eight nieces and nephews because Kate has pushed her relatives out of her children’s lives and refuses to reconcile with her family.
“Kate does not speak to her family at all. It is very painful… The last time we saw and spoke with her it was in our church parking lot. That was years ago, I have lost track of time,” Kendra told the The Daily Mail of her heartbreak, estimating she hasn’t seen the kids in about 6 years.
“I guess we weren’t totally on board with what was going on with the kids, I guess we weren’t excited enough for her and were concerned about her family,” she said.

Kendra said that she worries Kate’s children will one day blame her for not being in their lives. “My sister-in-law Jodi [Kreider] and I get talking about the past and we don’t understand what she’s thinking. When the kids get old enough are they going to come and try to find us? I hope so,” Kendra told The Daily Mail.
“What are we going to tell them? We’ll have to tell them we tried to get hold of their mom, we tried to be part of their life, but we weren’t allowed to be,” she explained before asserting,”We didn’t leave her, she left us.”
