"13. no1 who is commenting on a jon and kate story in the middle of the day had a "normal childhood" thank you very much.

Does that include you, idiot? Some people work nights or weekends, unlike Jon or Kate who don't even have jobs now -- they just exploit their kids and make THEM work.

Ane ANYONE who support their show is a chlid abuser, too.

What labor exactly? I've seen a few episodes, and it seems most of the kids are oblivious to the fact that this is a show and they're on TV. Looks like they're behaving like any other kid. I see no pressure on them nor being asked to work. Let them have their 15 minutes of fame and fun, cause when the show ends and TLC is not paying their bills, life might get a little tougher.

#14, People have been trying for years but it seemed to always fall on DEAF EARS. They sold their children to the highest bidder for material things. It is past time for these children to have a life that does NOT involve cameras filming their every move for someone's entertainment.

I wonder why Jodie didn't try this before. I agree with #12. There are so many kids on t.v!! what about the Tori Spelling show? Come on. Leave them alone so they can work out their marriage and help their children. Yeah Jodie, you really care about those kids. Your kids were on the show too, I hope Kate has you investigated. ps: we all know you're getting paid to bash the family so cut the s**t

Enough is enough    

These people has enough going on wright now with the talk of who is having an affair with who... I think that her brother and sister inlaw is the ones' who is trying to start the trouble now.. Just leave these people alone and let them work out there own problems without the gossip magazines getting in it... No one is thinking of what it's doing to the kids if these people keep talking about them.. All i hear is poor jon or poor kids..... You know he is the cause for some of it and then she is too.. Just leave them alone.. If anything think of the kids.
