Jon of ‘Jon & Kate Plus 8’ Dishes About Kate

From Jon & Kate Plus 8, Jon Diashes about Kate Post-Divorce

Opening Up To Oprah

It’s been almost four long years since we watched Jon and Kate’s marriage implode on national television, and the two have been fighting ever since. Now, Jon is opening up to Oprah in a new interview, and he is definitely not holding back. Jon and Kate share custody of twins Cara and Mady, now 13, and 9 year old sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah and Joel, but Jon admits that he and Kate are “just totally not on the same page at all about anything”. He also went on to add: “I don’t really know what goes on in Kate’s house, and she really doesn’t know what goes on in my house. There is no cooperation.” Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Different Directions

The former couple is definitely moving in different directions. Jon is now making ends meet working as a waiter in rural Pennsylvania, and living in a log cabin. He recently had a run in with paparazzi photographers, and was threatening the photographer and brandishing a handgun. Kate is still appearing on talk shows, recently speaking to Bethenny Frankel about her new book, and her relationship with Jon.

Developmental Problems?

Jon also dropped a bombshell when he revealed to Oprah that the kids have developmental problems, and he says that it could be blamed on their time in reality TV.

I saw my kids not growing up normally, like I grew up, and having community,” he confessed.
“Yes, they got to travel the world, and yes, they got these fabulous things, and yes, they have trust funds, and they’re taken care of educationally. Great,” he continued. “But developmentally, they have problems with their peers, and they have problems with talking to other people, and they have problems with wants and needs and manners and morals and what’s right and what’s wrong. I think more so than someone who grows up off TV.”

Kate Fights Back

Just like you would expect her to do, Kate fired right back after Jon told Oprah that the kids had developmental problems. She wrote on her blog on November 4:

“I find it very heartbreaking that my children’s father chooses a public forum to discuss his current opinions of the ‘development’ of our children. Because he has spoken negatively about our children, I feel I owe it to them to respond on their behalf,” Kate explained. “Each and every one of our children has met and continues to exceed all physical, mental, and emotional developmental milestones throughout their lives. Their normal development is regularly monitored by myself, their pediatrician, and school staff, as is usual within any family.”

It looks like no matter how much time has passed, these two are never going to see eye to eye, and there is definitely no reconciliation in their future.
