Jon and Kate Gosselin of the reality show Jon & Kate Plus 8 aren't even close to being the normal family they once thought they were. After Jon was caught stepping out with another woman at 2 am back in April, the couple has constantly been scrutinized by the media. That can't be healthy for the kids, can it?
Jon Gosselin breaks his silence to People magazine in an interview that hits newsstands Friday. Though major details of the article have yet to be released, the magazine has provided the following quote from Jon Gosselin in regards to whether or not his children are being exploited:
Exploited?...I don't even want to use that word, because I think it's ridiculous.
According to the magazine, Jon Gosselin insists his biggest focus is his kids' happiness.
Wow, that's news to me. I would assume that if you let camera crews in your home on a daily basis and broadcast your life on a major cable network you are indeed exploiting your children. But Kate got a free tummy tuck, Jon got free hair implants and the family is now living in a million dollar home. So it's all worth it even if the kids are slightly taken advantage of (but happy). Right?
Do you think the Gosselin's are exploiting their children? Is it worth it for the couple to be portrayed as they are by the media if it means they are more financially secure? Leave your opinion below.
