Kate Gosselin has had a lot to discuss with news outlets the past few weeks, all in service of her new cookbook that she’s been shilling. After speaking to Bethenny Frankel on her talk show about her finances and her relationship with ex-husband Jon Gosselin, she then spoke to Memphis Radio Station FM100 about her children and her relationship with them.
She claims that her incessant famewhoring and constant tweeting hasn’t affected the childrens’ lives at all, and neither has the fact that they were on a reality show at an age where their only concern should have been playing and having fun. She says on Memphis Radio FM100, “Certainly there’s speculation out there, the kids are damaged or whatever — blah blah blah. The truth is I live here, they live here. They’re normal kids.” The problem is – nobody is denying that they are ‘normal’ kids. What we are saying is that their lives were put in full view in front of millions of viewers and they had no choice about it. Even if they don’t understand the ramifications of that now, at such a young age, there’s no way it’s not going to affect them when they get older, go to college, and try to get jobs.
Of course, she also adds that she won’t mind if the children want to write tell-all books when they’re older, explaining, “I know everything they would write, you know? If they want to open their lives up someday, I wouldn’t count it out. If they wanted to say it, I say go for it.”
Well, that might be their only choice for income, if they don’t end up getting jobs – and with their parents continuing to famewhore themselves to the whole world, what choice would those kids have? All I see is resentment and disappointment between everybody involved in this.
