Kelly Rutherford appeared on the Nov. 16 episode of NBC’s ‘Dateline,’ where she sobbed over the status of her ex-husband’s visa that is preventing her from seeing her children on a daily basis.

The Gossip Girl actress Kelly Rutherford appeared on NBC’s Dateline to discuss the current status of her child custody battle with her ex-husband Daniel Giersch.

Since Giersch’s visa has been revoked, Kelly’s two children Hermes, 5, and Helena, 3, have been forced to live with their father in France.

“Why would you take the kids away from their mother, out of their school, away from their friends and everything they’ve known, and plant them somewhere else?” asked Rutherford.

The judge declared that Giersch would have to provide Kelly’s plane ticket, a car and a place to stay when she visited France.

“I was on a plane three weekends a month,” the actress said. “I’m being punished for being a good mother and taking care of my children, and he’s being rewarded for having his visa revoked. Our kids are U.S. citizens and they have a right to be raised in the U.S.”

Kelly continued to speak as she started to cry, “It’s crazy. It’s like, what matters other than your babies? Nothing. What matters is that your babies are okay.”

Kelly and Giersch split in 2009 while she was still pregnant with Helena. While Giersch says he learned of his daughter’s birth through tabloids, Kelly says, “The truth is he knew that I was in labor and I was at the hospital. I just didn’t want him right there because it was very painful.”

HollyMoms, should Kelly be able to raise her children in the United States?

Another dumb lady like Hallie Berry .Kelly used this man to father two children then gets a girlfriend now wants to prevent the father from seeing his children so really if it wasn’t the Visa explanation she would have some other reason why she doesn’t want their father to be involved.
