According to MSNBC the kids are sick of being filmed. Now is the time to cut the show, Jon and Kate. You always said if the kids didn't want to do it, that you would stop the show. (Or is this a setup for a "graceful" exit since the ratings are dropping!)
Jon and Kate’s ‘8’ revolt against being filmed
Jon and Kate Gosselin’s 5-year-old sextuplets and 8-year-old twins are starting to rebel against the constant taping of their lives.
“The kids staged a sit-in — a revolt,” Jon Gosselin told Life & Style on Aug. 13. “They didn’t want to work today.”
This isn’t the first time the kids haven’t wanted to “work.” On Aug. 7, after a day of filming for TLC's "Jon & Kate Plus 8," the magazine reports that the eight Gosselin kids were pressured into continuing to film beyond their wishes.
An eyewitness told the magazine that “once the kids returned home, the film crew kept yelling at them to film more outside. They seemed really tired, but the crew kept pushing them.”
A rep from TLC denied the report, saying “the assertion is utterly baseless.”
