Jon Gosselin is actually accusing the media and tabloids of trying to profit off of his children. That may be true, but the irony is so thick that it’s almost impossible to believe he’s not self-aware enough to recognize that’s what he’s been doing for years.
Last Friday, Jon was interviewed for Good Morning America and 20/20 segments that will air this week, and E! News reported that Jon will say the TLC show is exploiting his kids. E! quotes someone who was on set who said Jon “basically comes right out and says he’s worried the show is ‘exploiting’ his eight children.”
But Jon himself then told E!, “I’m not saying TLC is exploiting my children. But I do believe the media and tabloids covering my family and the show for their own financial gain are the ones exploiting them. … I have said on numerous occasions TLC has afforded my kids a better life and has helped provide a better roof on their heads.”
Does Jon really not see how being on a reality show for years was, to quote him, for his family’s “own financial gain”?
