Why don't the Gosselin children (ala Kate Plus 8) have any relationships with extended family members (grandparents, cousins, uncles/aunts, etc)?

The only time I saw them with extended family was when Aunt Jodie babysat them (before Kate kicked her to the curb) and when Jon and Kate renewed their wedding vows in Hawaii.

  • I read somewhere once that she doesn't talk to her dad because when she was having the sextuplets he organized an event to get baby stuff for her & she refused the items because they weren't brand new & didn't match.

  • I don't watch that show so I am not 100% sure but it could be that they just don't want to be on tv.

  • I have to agree with previous poster: she is a bitch. I watched the show about the chickens and she had to have the coops in just the right spot! and then she didn't want the water softerner guy in the kitchen. WTF he needed to test the water!

  • Because Kate refuses to share the money. She had some relatives banned from shooting because of it.

  • I read her book, and in it somewhere it said because her parents wanted her to do selective reduction, and she wouldn't do it. I would not have either.
