Kate Gosselin Is Actually Kind of OK for Once!
Hey, so how awful are Jon and Kate Gosselin? Pretty darn awful, right? They've been having a little competition of awfulness for a while now -- Kate will say something really terrible, and then Jon will come in and pretend to be great so that everyone loves him more, that kind of thing -- but a couple of days ago, Jon said that his kids had problems "developmentally" from all the reality television fame, and that sort of cemented his spot as The Worst Gosselin. And so, of course, it's time for Kate to swoop in and publicly chastise him.
Here are some excerpts from her blog:
I find it very heart breaking that my children’s father chooses a public forum to discuss his current opinions of the “development” of our children. These opinions are, in reality, value judgements made about our children and they are based on his limited visits (albeit mutually agreed upon) with our children. Because he has spoken negatively about our children, I feel I owe it to them to respond on their behalf.
Each and every one of our children has met and continues to exceed all physical, mental and emotional developmental milestones throughout their lives. Their normal development is regularly monitored by myself, their pediatrician and school staff, as is usual within any family.
She also said that everyone always tells her that her kids are "a delight," and also this:
When our kids grow up, they may see their father’s latest interview and wonder why he made untrue and hurtful statements about them. I know that I risk stirring up an unwanted public and private “frenzy” by commenting on this, but, if our children ever stumble upon that interview, I want to be able to point them to this statement so that they know that I publicly set the record 100% straight on this one, for their sake.
That's right, Kate, you did it all for the kids. For sure. Every single thing, all for the kids. Sounds great.
