I think they removed the kids because they thought David was an actual danger to the kids. Maybe they didn't want to admit it was for publicity until the cops started asking specific questions during the investigation. We're still getting information about everything, but there are definitely many questions about this.What a horrible thing to fake. But, if this is fake, then what is the reasoning behind removing the children?? I wouldn't be surprised if she just went out and purchased another Frenchie to replace Nugget and take up for David, again. Regardless whether it's true or not, that home is very dysfunctional.
