Jon Gosselin Says Divorce Is No Biggie for the Kids

Jon Gosselin Says Divorce Is No Biggie for the Kids-photo

Jon Gosselin may think that taping a reality show is bad for his eight children, but as far as he's concerned the fact that he's going through a high-profile divorce with wife Kate Gosselin is pretty much A-OK with them.

The former Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad sat down for an interview with Entertainment Tonight and revealed that, with the exception of nine-year-old twins Mady and Cara, the Gosselin kids greeted the news of their parents' split with a collective, "Meh."

Says Papa Jon,

"When we told them we were going to get divorced, the 5-year old said, 'What's for lunch?' The only two people who really cared were Mady and Cara. Cara broke down and Mady said, 'Oh, I saw this coming.'"

Maybe they were just relieved that the marriage was over?

Gosselin also used the interview to get in another pot-shot at estranged wife Kate, theorizing that she probably twisted Jon's decision to halt production on the show in order to scare and intimidate the kids.

Jon suggests that, when Kate told them about the production shutting down, she probably said something along the lines of,

"Oh, daddy's put a halt on filming. Your friends are going to go away...She probably worded it in a way that's a violation to them, or their sense of security."

Poor guy; will he ever catch a break?

Let us know in the comments section: Given their tempestuous marriage, do you think it's better or worse for the kids that Jon and Kate have split up?

    i think that he needs to just shut up. I cant stand this guy and wish that he gets all he deserves. Nice trying to make kate look bad just so he comes smeeling like roses. Like most men he need to blame her so he feels good about himself. stop giving him airtime he doesnt want anything but to promote himself as the victum

    Jon your a scumbag. You made many remarks on how having eight kids before the age of 32 didnt give you a chance for a life. Are you saying you regret having those kids, who btw, are much happier with their mother. Believe me; all kids are happier with their mothers. And loving Haley so soon? How long have you've been cheating on Kate anyways? Jon, leave the marriage, leave the kids and go whore your self around like you want to do.

    That is probably the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard! Divorce does NOT destroy a child's "fragile" minds- their parents' action do. A bad marriage can be WAY more traumatizing! When divorce is handled with the child's well-being first, they can grow up happy and well-adjusted. My parents divorced when I was 4 years old. They had joint custody and I never thought it was a problem. They both remarried, and I was the envy of my friends as a child b/c I received presents from 4 families! I agree. My parents divorced when I was 3 and it was my fathers immature actions that caused the most problems, not the divorce itself. My mom remarried and is happier now than she ever was. These kids are going to have problems because their parents do not have their best interests at heart, but care more about their "fame" and fortune then raising, happy, healthy and loved children.

    Those kids are not stupid. They know that things are not the same between their parents. And I feel so bad for these kids.

    What on earth did he expect 5 year olds to do? Just because their immediate reaction wasn't horror doesn't mean that they won't grasp things down the road and be upset. In fact, they will be sad about the divorce for years to come. Jon does not have a handle on children, or on simple reality. How stupid can he be? Every time he opens his mouth he looks more unintelligent.
