Kate Gosselin's feminist fight
I'm tired of the Jon and Kate Gosselin stories too, but the news that he plans to file for custody because she is neglecting their kids by being on Dancing With the Stars strikes me as a feminist issue.
The two formerly starred on the hit TLC reality show Jon & Kate Plus 8, which chronicled the lives of the Gosselins and their large brood - twins and sextuplets - at their home in eastern Pennsylvania. The show ended its run in November, and their divorce became final in December.
The no-fault divorce settlement gave Kate Gosselin primary custody of the children and the family home. Jon's lawyer now says Kate Gosselin has been pursuing her career at the expense of the children.
I'm no fan of hers, but she's earning a lot of money on that show so that is taking care of her kids. Working does not equal neglect. And frankly, what was he doing when he was running around with girlfriend after girlfriend and not earning any money? Jon, your 15 minutes is up!
