Kate Gosselin doesn’t appreciate you assuming TV stardom is turning her children into unschoolable hellions. First off, Collin and Alexis weren’t expelled in the first place! “They were not expelled from school,” she told Meredith Viera on Today. “They were having anger issues. They were acting out, having behavior things…So I did what I could do, we mutually agreed, I brought them home…[a tutor] is teaching them on on one, they are excelling along with weekly therapy…The goal is to get them back into school.” And it’s her divorce from Jon Gosselin, not the camera crews that are inspiring this. “[Collin and Alexis] have been the ones to verbalize the most that they miss Daddy,” she told People. “I could see that they’re the ones struggling the most.”
While she acknowledges that the shows help with her income, Kate’s feels the public attention does a whole lot more for her eight rugrats. “There has been nothing but positive that has come out of it. I am working while they’re by my side and traveling and that is not only providing us trips for a lifetime but it’s providing for their future and I am still sitting here honestly telling you Meredith and I believe it wholeheartedly, as does the evidence that you see on TV, that it is in their best interest…we would not be doing it if it wasn’t… it’s a heaven on earth job, it really is.” Seems weird she’d claim there’s no negative side when her kids are acting out over her divorce, but maybe she figures she would have split from Jon even if he hadn’t become the fame-hungry JoGo monster we loved so much last year.
