Pity the eight poor little Gosselite children. Their mom takes to national TV to diss their dad, than deserts them on a trip to a luxurious resort to shoot her fab abs. Has she chosen fame over family?
The kids were forced to fly large, expensive-looking kites for the cameras even though the wind was blowing more than 20 miles per hour. Not a single kite made it into the air as the crew struggled with the kids' kites and Kate adjusted her black sundress.
I spent a very brief time counseling Jon Gosselin to get his kids off the show. It's not that fame is itself a bad thing. It is, rather, fame without foundation, celebrity without balance, that is so deeply corrosive.
