Kate Gosselin took her family feuding to the airwaves Wednesday on Joy Behar‘s CNN Headline News show, ripping into her brother, Kevin Kreider - accusing him of “making money off of lies.”
Kate’s venom wasn’t reserved purely for her brother, she also tore into Kevin’s wife Jodi, who testified along with Kevin at a hearing Wednesday that Kate’s 8 children had been mistreated during the filming of Kate’s hit TLC reality show, Jon And Kate Plus 8.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported Kevin and Jodi testified before a Pennsylvania Labor hearing that they saw many safety issues during the filming and said there were no safeguards in place to protect the children’s rights.
Kate slammed their claims, telling Behar, “I just know that in the end the truth will prevail, so I honestly don’t spend a whole lot of time worrying about it.”
Going on to dismiss their claims as an example of her relatives trying to cash in on her celebrity, Kate said: “My brother has made a lot of money off of saying things that are untrue about us. I’ve not allowed them to see my kids for two years. So I’m not quite sure what information they think they may have.”
Kate explained that she distanced her family from the Kreiders because of incidents in the past, saying, “Every single time they were visiting my kids they would turn around and be on some sort of a show the next day talking about, you know, what it is that they saw inside our house.
“With that kind of trust ruined and knowing that they have made hundreds of thousands of dollars on lies about us, I’m not sure what their goals are, because they were a part of our show and things were fine and dandy then.”
“I’m a working mom, I’m single and I have to provide for my kids,” she said. “No pun intended but the show must go on.”
Kate was appearing as part of her promotional tour for her new memoir I Just Want You To Know: Letters To My Kids On Love, Faith and Family.
Thankfully Kate did manage to get a little plugging done in between fielding questions about her personal and business life.
