Former reality star Jon Gosselin (of Jon & Kate Plus 8) sat down with Oprah Winfrey this week for an episode of her show “Where Are They Now?”. Jon got candid about the bad side of allowing their kids to be on reality TV. The celebrity dad says that his children have suffered developmentally as a result.
Jon told Oprah about his eight kids, “Yes, they got to travel the world, and yes, they got these fabulous things, and yes, they have trust funds, and they’re taken care of educationally. Great. But developmentally, they have problems with their peers, and they have problems with talking to other people, and they have problems with wants and needs and manners and morals and what’s right and what’s wrong. I think more so than someone who grows up off TV.”
I understand Jon wanting to share the aftermath of the experience, but I’m not sure if talking about it publicly is the right thing. The kids are older now and having dad talk about such private things now that they’re off TV might upset them or embarrass them.
Do you miss Jon and Kate and their kids on TV?
