    KATE’S RATIONALIZATION
     
    When faced with any kind of criticism about exploiting her children, Kate’s standard response has always been to say that any one of us would have done the same thing if we were presented with the opportunity to film a reality show. I wouldn’t bet on that.
    The thought of having strangers around filming my family sounds repulsive and disgusting to me and would seem to be attractive only to someone seeking attention and fame. If my family were in dire need of money though, I would agree to take the meetings. However, after reading the terms in that first contract about Discovery having control over how my family dressed and acted and wore our hair, and how they would have total control over my family photos and videos, etc., that would have been the end of the conversation. I would have shown them the door without another word. As most normal, mediocre people trying to protect their family would do.

    One of the great frustrations for people who are disgusted by Kate Gosselin’s actions and lies, and who are concerned for her children, is that almost no one has ever gone on record to tell what they know. With all of the gossip and tabloid rumors coming out over the years about Kate’s horrible behavior, and with accusations that she abused her children being reported in the tabloids and online, many are baffled as to why not a single person close to the Gosselin family, or a single member of the TLC crew, or any of Kate’s present or former nannies, babysitters, cooks, cleaners, etc., would speak out to help the children.
    It is difficult to understand how Kate could get away with all of the nasty and vicious things she has been accused of saying and doing without somebody spilling the beans. And yet, that is exactly what has happened. Kate continues to appear on television talk shows with her fake smile and her head held high, portraying herself as a victim and telling one lie after another, while blaming everyone but herself for everything bad that has been said about her, and every perceived wrong done to her. How is that possible?
    The answer is really very simple. It is very likely that all those people who have witnessed her actions are afraid for their financial lives.
    While the Gosselins were under contract with Discovery, anyone who had any contact at all with Jon and Kate, or came anywhere near their children – from lawn service technicians to their very own family and former friends – had to sign a Confidentiality and Nondisclosure Agreement. Anyone who signed this document agreed to not utter one word about anything they saw or heard while around the Gosselins.
    While such agreements are standard entertainment industry practice, Kate Gosselin made sure to revise that legal document to make it better – for her. And she had the full legal muscle of Discovery Communications standing firmly behind her to enforce it.
    So many people have disappeared from the Gosselin children’s lives because they couldn’t sit by any longer and watch Kate abuse and destroy their childhoods. But because they signed the Confidentiality Agreement, they couldn’t legally tell anyone about anything they ever saw Kate do. To do so would have meant exposing themselves to severe penalties and risking possible financial ruin.
    Armed with the power of the Confidentiality Agreement, Kate knew she could do anything she wanted and get away with it. She paid very special attention to the wording of the Agreement and wanted additional, stronger wording added to ensure that it would be completely clear to anyone reading and signing it that they couldn’t talk about the Gosselin family. At all. EVER.
