Moments after Jon and Kate Gosselin officially announced on their reality show that they were separating, RadarOnline.com sat down with Kate's brother Kevin Kreider and his wife Jodi at their home in Elizabethtown, PA.
In our exclusive interview, Kevin expresses outrage that Jon and Kate would separate on national television! He worries that the pain of their pending divorce will be enough for their eight children to endure, without the world knowing every detail of their family's personal struggles.
Said Kevin: "We're just so heartbroken and sad about the announcement they made... an announcement that could be so life-shattering for a young child. It was used to gain ratings without any regard for my nieces and nephews."
Jodi added: "It was the saddest thing to witness. This is family. We lived a life with Jon and Kate for years and we've developed really close relationships with each of the kids, and to know that this is being viewed by millions and used as a ratings booster. It's horrible.. It's horrible."
Still, Kevin and Jodi are holding out hope that Jon and Kate could still reconcile someday.
