When is the community theater melodrama called Jon & Kate Plus 8 going to end?! There hasn’t even been an intermission. Just when I’m about to get up to go to the bathroom and get a glass of something mind-numbing at the concession stand, another act starts! In this act, Aunt Jodi leaps and twirls into the Pennsylvania labor department to sing a weepy ballad about the Gosselin children crying tears of sadness whenever Kate makes them dance around like puppets.
This moving performance causes the Pennsylvania Department of Labor to open up an investigation to determine whether or not TLC is violating any child labor laws. This never ever ends…..
A rep for the Pennysylvania Dept. of Labor told People, “I can confirm that our bureau of labor law compliance is conducting an investigation as they do whenever they receive a charge. We’re not saying that there was or was not a violation, just that we’re conducting an investigation.”
TLC responded with this: “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.”
I responded with this: “STOP.”
Gloria Allred responded with this: “Why am I not involved?”
