I have been fascinated with the responses to my blog about Hailey Glassman. It has sparked so much emotion in many people that I think it is now time to respond.
Most reactions that are so polarizing there are only two forces to contend with: for and against. My question is “What are you for and what are you against?”
Here is the basic information that may help. Kate and Jon represent many things to many people. They stood for something unique and different, sextuplets and twins all in a whirlwind of time. In the beginning they won the hearts of so many of us. An act of fate and there they are with few financial resources and lots of diapers to change.
Their every move was caught on camera and the good times as well as the terrible times were chronicled for all to see.
The sad thing is they were so caught in the eye of the hurricane they did not have an opportunity to come up for air. As the years and the stress continued someone in an objective place, a producer for the show, a parent, someone should have realized they were in a form of post-traumatic stress and suggested some help.
By the time I entered the picture Jon and Kate were an accident just ready to happen. Now, they are clearing up the ravages of the devastation that divorce brings. It is a slow process. It takes new perspectives about life and love, letting go, accepting, forgiving, and a new phase of adult responsibility.
I believe many of you who are responding to the blog are also searching for answers of your own about what really matters in life. Sure, we all wish that Kate and Jon could have given us the picture perfect story about “and they lived happily ever after with their eight beautiful children.”
In my book “Don’t Bring It to Work”, I talk about the behavior patterns formed in childhood that we bring into all other relationships in our lives and how to transform the patterns that get in the way of happiness and success. If only one or two of you can stop for just a minute and look at why you are so super-charged about Jon and Kate Gosselin and begin to look into your own inner selves, then what I wrote is worth it. If it is only a forum for bashing them and each other then it has served no purpose.
I will respond to some of the comments about Hailey being an adult and what do her parents have to do with anything. It may help put a new perspective on what we all need to know and do in our personal relating.
A new approach is not going to change what Jon has done and continues to do. No, I’m not searching for “for answers of my own about what really matters in life.” Some things are basically simple. Like how Jon and Ellen have continued to publicly disrespect Kate as the mother of his children. Who are you to insert yourself into Hailey’s or Kate’s life and make public judgments? You are Jon’s coach. Your focus should be on him. Interesting how being Jon’s life coach includes running his PR. Why don’t you address Jon’s slams of Kate during the interview with the Rabbi or how Ellen supports blogs that are full of hateful and sensational rumors about Kate. Your post degrading Hailey and involving her parents is unprofessional and uncalled for. You show no empathy or respect for the others involved in Jon’s life. You are unprofessionally biased.
Kate4 refuses to let Jon on the property, that is disrespect the father of their children. She has taken numerous shots at him on the show, and he hasn’t said all that much. Ellen knows the truth of the matter and is free to do what she wants. The Kate fans are the biased ones and have no respect for various people like Ellen, Jodie and Kevin.

First of all, Kate has said in public that she was hard on Jon, then Jon ran to every rag magazine to trash Kate and told many lies on the Larry King Show. You seem to assume that the public will buy the notion that Jon can keep passing the buck and the blame on everyone else. He needs to come out and be honest with everybody. Until then I can assure you as a Mother he has no future with his kids or life. Blaming a childhood for your adults actions is so old and just a bunch of BS. Take resposibilities as many kids had tough childhoods and rose above it all and have done well in life. Please, stop the madness with Jon and your own pat on the back for failing to really help Jon except to take his money, which should be spent on his children.
It is so obvious what you are doing, you are supporting a liar to gain some attention to yourself and the Book that you are co-writing with Jon.
For your information this has nothing to do with some fairy tale bull?
I will tell you what I am for..I am for the TRUTH no matter what, and I am against LIARS!
My Question for YOU SYLVIA and Jon is……If Hailey is Lying PROVE IT, If Kate is Lying PROVE IT!
It doesn’t matter what Kate and Haley have said. This is Jon’s life coach. That’s where her focus should be. What business does she have publicly casting judgment on Hailey or Kate? Jon cannot control what others say or do, he can only control himself. He’s responsible for things he has done that have been hurtful to Kate and their children Apparently, one of the steps is to have your life coach do PR by blaming everyone else.
Sylvia, what’s your take on Kate’s lies this morning on Regis and Kelly?
If Kate lied prove it” scrantastic. Bring it here…” show it.”
I agree Juno… Sylvia should allow Jon to except blame for his lies instead of protecting his lies or blaming others for them.
If Jon is telling the truth he should prove it… if Jon is lying ” he should ” take responsibility for those lies.
I think were always looking for the purpose of life and what we want to get out of it. Keep your friends and family close and you’ll find it.
