Kate Gosellin's brother and his wife, Kevin and Jodi Kreider went on The Early Show to tell America why they believe Jon & Kate Plus 8 is child exploitation.



The couple used to be close the the Gosselins and their litter of children, appearing in early episodes of the reality tv show and frequently babysitting.

However, as the fame and fortune piled on, the Krieders say they became uncomfortable with the constant presence of the cameras, and the year-round dilming, even in the childrens' bedrooms.

"They're being exploited," Jodi said. "And it's time for America to see the situation for what it really is, which is unfortunately, there are are to laws protecting children in reality TV shows. And it's time for the public to be aware of this."

They claim that Jon and Kate renewed their vows in Hawaii purely to increase ratings of their show, as they do when taking the children on outings, or having celebrations or parties. The kids have apparently confided in them before, that they dislike having the cameras on them at all times.

The Kreiders worry this is unlikely to stop, saying Jon and Kate are "very blinded by all of this media and.. fame and the fortune."

So are they really using their children for money? Well, we can't say for sure, but the highlight of the show is the fact they have eight children.
