Former reality TV star Jon Gosselin opens up about the negative aspects of putting his family in the spotlight, and says his eight children have problems developmentally — attributing it to growing up on TV, and RadarOnline.com has all the details.
Kate Gosselin‘s ex filmed a segment with Oprah Winfrey‘s Where Are They Now? on OWN and told the talk show maven that Jon and Kate Plus 8 destroyed his marriage, his reputation, his career and his children.
“I saw my kids not growing up normally, like I grew up, and having community. 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,” he said of his twin daughters Cara and Mady, 13, and the sextuplets Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Alexis, Joel and Leah, 9.
“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.”
Jon and Kate’s marriage crumbled while the public watched, and the father of eight says he gained an unfair reputation — and never cheated on Kate.
Making the choice to have you children involved in reality tv always runs the risk of exposing them to things that could be potentially damaging at some point. The Gosselin’s had to be aware of this…..SMH.
