As Kevin told interviewer Harry Smith, “We want to be the voices of our nieces and nephews. And we’re seeing it turn tide that they’re being viewed as a commodity… They’re being exploited.”

“…These children are very aware of the cameras in their homes,” Jodi added. “Their home is their workplace. And this is not a healthy environment for kids to be raised in.”

Jodi said that Jon and Kate are both “very lost right now.”

“They’re blinded by all of this media and this – you know – the fame and the fortune,” she said.

Then Harry Smith asked the million dollar question: “Could they walk – do you think they could walk away (from doing the show)?”

“No. No. No,” Jodi replied.

Huffington Post has the complete transcript of the interview.
