Here we go again.
TLC says it “fully complies” with state laws and regulations.
In response to the investigation, TLC released a statement Friday saying, “TLC fully complies with all applicable laws and regulations. Jon and Kate + 8 is no exception. For an extended period of time, we have been engaged in cooperative discussions and supplied all requested information to the Pennsylvania Department of Labor. We will continue to engage the appropriate officials and meet any standards or regulations that are applicable to TLC productions.”
Kreider said the children have told her they don’t like the cameras.
Her husband and Kate’s brother, Kevin Kreider, said in the same interview: “You can’t imagine as a child realizing that my birthday party, that all the outings that my parents took me on were … for ratings, and all organized by production companies.”
“Jon & Kate Plus 8” tapes off and on throughout the year, averaging two to three hours a day, two to three days a week, according to TLC.
I realized it was Saturday and that today I had promised the kids they could go to the party store and help pick out decorations for their Backyardigan party on Sunday!!! So I hopped out of bed and started to feed breakfast, play outside with the kids and lay out their outfits for the trip. They were really excited to help and especially excited for their party.
Jon was unexpectedly away. We mistakenly got our wires crossed and I ended up having no help from our babysitter, so I decided I’d brave this adventure by myself!!! To be very honest, I wasn’t sure how it would go. Due to the overwhelming popularity of our show, our kids haven’t been in a store for quite some time. This was going to be A HUGE TREAT…. or a repeat of the Toys R Us episode. I wasn’t sure which yet.
