No More Aunt Jodi
June 25, 2008
I want to discuss the REAL reason that Jodi has been cut from the show. I'm sure most of you won't be surprised, because it's been a recurring theme: CONTROL!! "It's all about ME". God forbid that Jodi gets a little attention. "You make me look worse"--sorry Kate, you don't need much help with that. You do a pretty good job on your own.
But the real slap in the face was when "someone" approached Jodi and wanted to offer her a contract to continue the show. Of course, Jodi was very excited!
She could actually get paid for being on the show and watching the kids--she had already been doing that for years. Who wouldn't be excited?!Come to find out, Kate stopped that from happening before filming of the 2nd season. All along--for 2 yrs-- Jodi could have been paid for opening up her home to the world, being on camera, but Kate said "NO WAY!!" "No one gets paid but us!" "No one makes money off MY family!" Oh, there's so much more--all to the ONLY family members who would have anything to do with them (or were allowed). To the ONLY family who had been there, helped them, supported them, even before the sextuplets were born. Other members of the family had tried in the past, but had already been cut off.
To actually ACCUSE them of being there for the money!
BUT Jodi didn't walk away--she has her reasons, and it's not because she's a doormat. She told Kate she'd continue because it wasn't about money. She wants a relationship with the kids. Kate couldn't allow Jodi to have a contract, yet she didn't have a problem with giving it to someone else--someone who hasn't even been in their life. DISGUSTING!! So now that the network will pay for childcare/other help, Jodi's "services" are no longer needed. She's been used for what Kate needed at the time, and tossed aside like her garbage.
Now--Kate doesn't have time to work Jodi into her busy life. Jodi is a stay at home mom with 4 young children. Kevin is the hardest working man I know. Why would she prevent her FAMILY from getting paid for something they were already doing? It's not like the network was going to deduct it from HER money. She already had her contract. How could someone be that cruel? Does family mean nothing? Words can't describe my feelings about this!!!
