“Octomom” Vs. Jon & Kate

By on Wednesday, 19th October 2011

Nadya Suleman says her reality TV show won’t exploit her kids as, she says, the Gosselins’ exploits theirs.

Nadya Suleman says the reality TV series she’s just signed up for won’t take after the TLC reality show, “Jon & Kate Plus 8.”

The “Octomom,” who gave birth to six boys and two girls in January and has six other young children, took swipes at Jon and Kate Gosselin on the Web site RadarOnline.com.

“I just want it to be very not like ‘Jon & Kate Plus 8,’ where I feel they’ve made a mistake by being… allowing it to be more exploitative and invasive in their kids’ lives,” Suleman said in a video on the site.

“Jon & Kate Plus 8” follows the couple as they raise their five year-old sextuplets and eight year-old twins.

Suleman criticized the Gosselins for conditioning their kids to living with TV cameras, which Suleman says she won’t do.

“I want it to be documentary-style, monitoring their growth and development. I want it to be more educational, focusing on the effects of prematurity, even though my children are pretty much, like, not premature children. … I want it to be more intellectual and educational, not so superficial.”

The audience for “Jon & Kate Plus 8,” now in its fifth season, has soared since the couple recently conceded that their marriage is in trouble, following reports of infidelity by both, reports both have denied.
