    Actually my guess is that Paul Peterson of “A Minor Consideration” and former child actor himself initiated the complaint.

    ahahahaaa jared. i’m sure they’ve been getting complaints from even the typical viewers since this show started. it’s always good to sellout your family for money though isn’t it…and then you can stand on your high moral ground and say I’M RIGHT YOU’RE WRONG. religious people. all hypocrites. also…if they are going to complain about violating child labour laws in penn, and against tlc, and this family, well wake up lawmakers and officials, this **** has been going on for years, and now you decide to take an interest. they better be investigating all those shows with the same formula as this or all the shows on tv that involves children or showcases children. lets go law. if they’re going to do this and scapegoat this family, then they better do it for all those other people who have done the same thing. i have seen many children on tv, so i’m sure there can be many cases to tie up the courts. as diddy would say “let’s go common sense”

    I’m soooooo sick of Jon and Kate everywhere! They are publicity freaks and money grabbers.

    I feel so sorry for those kids. How messed up are they going to be in a few years?

    yeah i would agree with you. from what i’ve read paul peterson is the guy who would interfere where he’s not wanted. but i would be willing to bet the complaint came from kate’s estranged brother. if so, i highly doubt she will ever speak to him or see him again. and i think she would make sure that never sees her children again.

    Hopefully, this contract becomes ‘null and void’ so these children can receive a normal childhood and grow-up psychologically healthy.; yet, another in vitro fertilization story in 2009. One can only hope the AMA is observing this and the Octomom story closely. When women have a challenge getting pregnant and do conceive (once) through in vitro (then) they need to stop and be grateful for their first born and find a way to “honorably” support (them) instead of having more in vitro fertilization and giving birth to six more children in this particular case). This woman and Octomom are psychologically disturbing stories to me.

    Anybody else find this investigation a waste of government money and time? How are these children working? They are living the life of a child – doing crafts, playing inside and outside of their mansion, going on lavish vacations and staying at 5 star reports at many places, including Hawaii, and going to museums and sporting events. I see more hard working kids working on their family farm than leading the pampered life of the Gosselin eight!

    People – this complaint is SO OBVIOUSLY from the cheaply dyed red headheaded anteater nosed ugly twa^t red lipstick wearing AUNT JODI!
    Radar Online and others have stopped taking her calls and requests for cash. So – she resorts to this bull&sh*it retaliation.
    Fu&cking Aunt Jodi is still pissed she’s not getting her cut of $$$ from my show. This complaint won’t do sh*it Aunt Jodi. Why?
    It’s a reality show – showing their lives – playing, vacationing, eating, etc. They are not making sneakers in a sweatshop with no air conditioning or bathroom breaks.
    This “complaint” will go NOWHERE because my kids are well taken care of financially – they are well fed, educated, and have extra toys, trips, etc. to keep them happy. This is so pathetic Aunt Jodi – it’s sad what you will do for $1.

    I thought of Aunt Jodi right away when I saw the headline.

    Lillianne Says:

    It could be anyone who made the complaint. There’s even a church that has turned her in to the feds for fraud for trying to solicit “donations” due to their difficult financial situation. The people in the church want their money back .

    I hope they arrest her for that hair.

    It has to be someone that knows them that reported them. The average viewer thinks they would follow all the child labor laws, but someone close to the family would be able to see up close what is really going on behind the cameras.

    It seems to me that these days, the show isn’t even about the 8 kids, it’s just what is next for Jon and Kate.

    Former production crew members turned them in. There was a revolving door of disgusted employees.

    Hope the investigate if those children have money set aside for them also? Now if they could only get the IRS involved to see if they declared their love offerings on their tax returns

    @ #10 cara: you’re stupid! who are you to tell families who use ivf how many times they can use it to concieve?? america is the only country that allows a woman to implant more than 3 embryos. other countries have a limit on implantation. so get with the rest of the world america and stop crazy control freaks from ruining children’s lives!!

    also if they filmed this show in california, those kids would be soooo rich and jon&hate would be broke. they would have to ask their babies permission to use their money. it’s would be better that way.

    MULLINS Says:

    I believe it was Paul Peterson also- I seen an interview where he was talking about the filming of children on potty- the children having signs saying camera out- I would say it was Paul Peterson- They should check into the labor laws in my opinion.
