Bonnie Says: Kate Gosselin: Dissing Jon on Regis & Kelly Was Selfish, AND Hurtful To Your Kids!

Posted Fri, September 10, 2010 8:12pm EDT

Kate — I’ve been your big supporter, but publicly dissing the father of your eight children on national TV was thoughtless and cruel to your precious Gosselettes!

I was shocked when on Sept 10th, you told Regis & Kelly that when your children have their visitation times with Jon “I basically wait for the phone call, for how many of them want to come home.” Dig!

Kelly and Anderson Cooper — who was filling in for Regis — looked aghast when you continued, saying that your children “want to be home playing with their toys and sleeping in their beds and spending time with ME!” Double digg!  Kate, you then admitted that when they call you from Jon’s place,  “I bring them home.”Punch!

And then when Anderson told you , “but you’re saying that basically they don’t enjoy being with him [Jon],” Kate ,you admitted that at “different days and different times, some of them don’t mind “spending time with him.” Slam!

Kate, you got another dig in at Jon when you said “I do try to keep it as peaceful as possible … I speak for myself.” Slug!

I was just as flabbergasted as Kelly and Anderson, who were glued to your every shocking word. You sat there in your bright red sleeveless blouse, red liptick and new long side-parted ultra-blonde blowout and just kept the digs coming You claimed that you understand that your children have a need to “see Jon” because “he is their father,” but you clearly don’t see that at all. Your anger and bitterness oozed out of your every word and pore.

Kate – you’re 35, but you’re acting like a self-centered two-year-old having a public hissy fit. You’re airing your dirty laundry in public and that’s NOT OK, when children are involved.

“I think she’s doing this because it will give her headlines (like this) and it will stimulate work for her. She isn’t in tune enough to understand the future damage she’s inflicting on her children, believes psychotherapist, Dr. Gilda Carle, Phd, founder of www.drgilda.com.

“She’s driving a wedge between the kids and their dad,” believes Dr. Susan Abbott, a child psychiatrist in Manhattan. “She should be encouraging her children to stay with their dad and telling them they’re fine when they call her.”

Totally agree. Kate — I believe you are deliberately undermining Jon’s relationship with his eight children. You should want him to be a parent. God knows you’ve complained enough that he hasn’t been there for the kids and now that he is regularly having them for sleepovers, you’re encouraging them to pack up and leave. Do you realize that you’re denying them, a lifelong relationship with their dad by undermining the bonds between them now.

“She should be telling them how lucky they are to have two different houses,” points out Dr. Carle.

I don’t know why you chose to throw this gauntlet down at Jon’s feet on national TV — unless it is to drum up work since the ratings on Kate Plus 8, have plummeted — but you got what you wanted.

Jon reacted with an equally immature tweet — “As much as I want to respond to numerous LIES recently claimed on Regis and Kelly…” he began.

However, calling Kate a liar, only showed that he’s as selfish and immature as you, Kate. “It takes two people to escalate a situation. Seeing their father call their mother a liar is almost worse — it undermines the kids confidence,” in their mom,” says Dr. Abbott.

What’s even sadder points out Dr. Jeff Gardere, is that “when Jon and Kate behave this badly in public, it reflects what they’re doing in private. The kids are seeing their private battles too.”

What’s so tragic Kate, is that you think you’re hurting Jon but your biggest victims are your 6 six-year-olds and 2 nine-year-olds. “Kids always blame themselves, when there’s a divorce. In this case, they may feel that the stress caused by their sheer numbers created the divorce,” explains Dr. Gardere.

Kate, you’ll be raising eight little liars according to Dr. Carle. “They will never honestly tell either parent how they feel about the other parent or about being at their house. And it’s terrible, that they will grow up to distrust marriage and relationships.” So sad!

Sad, sad, sad. Selfish, selfish, selfish! So Kate– was it really worth it for the momentary pleasure of getting to stick it to Jon, to hurt those innocent eight at home who NEED a daddy — however imperfect — as well as a mommy.

I really used to sympathize with you. I understand that you had the stress and the burden of psychologically and financially raising eight on your own. No more. You’re pushing away Jon when he’s trying to parent, but you don’t look like Saint Kate now. Instead, you are big mouthed self-centered Kate! Shame on you!

But she is a liar,what is Jon to do? Why does she get away with lying, leaving her kids for long periods of time, putting herself before her kids, and controlling when Jon can see the kids? Jon quietly defends himself with a tweet and what he has done is worse??? I disagree, there is nothing worse than her and the lies she spins. I guess Jon has to wait until the kids write a tell all to get his justice.

I am a single mother of four…now grown…but I bashed their father from here to timbuktu and back! My 3 girls are well adjusted, happily married, prfessional women (1’s a school principal she’s 33, the other two are lawyers 34 &37)My 36 year old son is also a well adjusyted married doctor…they we 4, 5, 7, 8 when their father decided he didn’t want to be married anymore!
I think the words she spoke reflect the neglect he shows his children and will help her kids understand in the future WHY their father isn’t in their lives as he hasn’t been before and most likely won’t be in the future, as soon as he finds some other woman to annoy!

Hey, Kate, why don’t you love your kids instead of treating those kids like your meal ticket that they are! These kids deserve so much better!

Nice job, Kate! You will somebody have 8 screwed-up kids! All of us who watched your show before know how controlling and verbally abusive you were to Jon and, I, a woman, for one, hate your guts and will not watch your show now. You make me sick, and I honestly feel that these kids should be in their fathers’ custody, noy yours. You are a poor excuse for a mother; you probably bad-mouth their father infront of the kids at home, too, don’t you? You are a selfish bitch and I hope that your stupid show ends soon; I hear ratings are down; karma is a bitch isn’t it? TLC needs to cancel your ass, and give the Duggar family a beach vacation instead of your screwed-up family. You should watch their show sometime; you just MIGHT learn something about how to raise well-rounded kids who treat their parents with respect. Mady and Cara are an absolute joke!

kate gosselin is a nasty, mean, entitled POS who shouldn’t have been blessed with any children at all. this latest slamming of jon just further goes to show that kate doesn’t care about those kids. in her grand scheme, they come last. she’s a famehwore who is all about the money and the spotlight who will do anything to remain in the public eye; she is doing this for attention and spite. those kids love their dad, and even if he has faults she should not be slamming him the way she was. but then kate shouldn’t do alot of things and does them anyway. on the next episode of her tired, pathetic show, she is allowing her own children to be filmed throwing up while she complains about it. what a mom! NOT! poor gosselin kids, exploited since birth. kate needs to get a regular job, so does jon… i’m sick of those who totally lack any talent being considered “celebs”.

Lack of talent is just the beginning; this bitch cannot even parent her kids. I always wondered why someone who claims that they only wanted “one more” implants six or more embryos! Like you said, these beautiful kids deserve better and only had these kids so that she had her meal ticket! Feel awful for these poor kids!
