Kate Gosselin called out her soon-to-be ex-husband and his actions, releasing a statement on Thursday disputing everything Jon has said as his justification for trying to shut down their reality show.
Kate put out this statement:
“I’m saddened and confused by Jon’s public media statements. Jon has never expressed any concerns to me about our children being involved in the show and, in fact, is on the record as saying he believes the show benefits our children and was taping on Friday with the kids. I check in regularly with each of the kids to be sure they want to participate in and continue with the show and will continue to do so. I do the show for my family because I believe it provides us opportunities we wouldn’t otherwise have. Jon used to share that belief until as recently as the day the network announced the name change of the show and indicated that Jon would have a lesser role in the show. It appears that Jon’s priority is Jon and his interests. My priority remains our children and their well being.”
Jon has demanded that the show halt taping, and his manager claimed in an interview Thursday that the kids have been complaining about the show.
But as RadarOnline.com reported exclusively, Jon went on video at the end of the summer saying it was “ridiculous” to think his kids didn’t love filming the show!
Now however, he wants out of his TLC contract and is denying permission for the family home to be used for taping and denying permission for his kids to be taped.
TLC announced they are suspending filming for now.
John’s manager Mike Heller also said Thursday about the show: It’s been hurting the relationship that he’s trying to reconcile with his wife – he’s trying to get back with her as a parent.”
Based on Kate’s statement, we suspect that reconciliation is going to be very, very, very, very difficult!
