Is Jon Up To His Old Tricks In His New Car?

We brought you news about Jon's new car here. Perhaps there was a purpose for him purchasing it. This isn't the first time Jon has been seen out drinking with women, but he just doesn't seem to care anymore. Here is a preview of a magazine article coming out this week.

you know, it's about time that Kon was exposed for exactly that, a con. And yes, the kids are the ones that will be the ones to pay. But oh no, according to Kate, they enjoy it! I don't condone cheating. Even IF IF IF it was as he says, a chick driving his car to her car at 2 am while they were leaving a bar together, well, I'd be pissed if it was my husband doing that and yes, I would consider it on the verge of cheating, just because it would be very irresponsible of him to put himself in that situation, public figure or not. And that crap of him "not going to stop being friends with women just because I'm on tv", well, no one is asking you to, but you owe it to your family to at least be respectful. Oh, that's right, I forgot who I was talking about.

This doesn't shock me at all... It's so sad though. I just can't believe churches are still paying them to speak. No only does the bible say to flee from evil, but also the apperence of evil. Even if Jon didn't do anything "wrong", how is being at a bar at 2am and leaving your children to be there, while your wife is away "putting your family first"? I mean, they always say everything they do is for their kids...

Kate is away from her children for weeks at a time, and Jon is off with strange women at all hours of the night... Somehow I don't buy what Kon is selling! Sadly, too many people do!

HannaBelleLechter said...

Once Kate and Jon moved into the new house, away from everybody in their old lives, their personal problems seemed to multiply; or, at least, to surface more.

If reports are true, we know that Aunt Jodi and Uncle Kevin, as well as Beth Carson's family, fell away -- either cast away or escapees. Jen and Scott, and most all of the original filming crew are gone now, too. Still, whether or not we viewers/observers saw it with our own eyes, there had to be a few constants in the family's lives -- a teacher or two, schoolmates, the supermarket checker, the mail carrier, the UPS deliverer, a house-helper or two. Somebody. Once they moved to a different burg, isolated on a 30-acre
fence-protected farm, Jon and Kate (as a couple, not as parents) were completely and utterly alone with themselves.

It must have been torture.

Kate made the decision to be the sole rep on the road a great deal of the time, and Jon agreed with it -- either happily or unhappily, he did agree.

But then, imho, the tsunami-type sea change hit when the Gosselins decided to employ a f/t nanny. From my understanding, there are three nannies, working 8 hour shifts, around the clock. If that's so, if the children are taken care of every night, safe and snug in their beds, there is absolutely nothing keeping Jon in the house when Kate is away.

The Utah condo, big enough only for him and "Cara"; the sportscar; the sightings of him drinking with coeds; and now this latest report have all shown Jon is ready to start a new life.

Any marriage's death is a sad thing, but when 8 little munchkins are involved, it's multiplied by 8. With their mother often gone and Jon mentally gone even when he's physically there, those children are in for trauma and grief. I wish I could trust their parents to handle all of this well, and in the best interest of the kids, but I can't trust J&K at all.

The money pouring in and the celebrity lifestyle are all that matters, so the charade will go one. I'm positive Jon and Kate are not sharing a bed. But I think they will continue to live as husband and wife.

Jon is acting, but, worse, he's looking more and more like the 12-year-old he is. These last years with Kate must have been tremendously hard for him to pretend to be a grownup. That's why Kate turned into Mother Superior. She had to smack his hand with the ruler to get him to hide his complete adolescence.

It's interesting. Often, when we find couples who have struggled with infertility or miscarriage, and gone from counseling to IVF to surrogates to adoptions -- all the possibilities borne of tragedy -- those events can bring a couple much closer together, and, also more respectful and loving of each other.

The problem with Kate and Jon is that they didn't struggle or wait at all. I doubt either Kate or Jon was infertile. Has either one actually confirmed those diagnoses? The twins were born after J&K were married just one year. They never tried to get pregnant the natural way; they never really agonized over tragedy and loss. They never bonded in their shared desire and purpose to become parents. It was a selfish game, that's all. Winner take all.

Kate seemed younger in the beginning; but Jon seemed childlike. Now she's aged beyond her early 30's and Jon has regressed to, maybe, 14.

All I can say is he MUST stop drinking and driving, if that is what's he's doing. It must stop immediately. I don't know the exact place they live, but I do have experience on the winding back roads of PA, and it's damn scary driving there under the best of circumstances.

Please God, all I pray is that the couple doesn't disgrace itself by pretending to seek marital counseling and therapy -- and bringing the TLC cameras into their sessions! But I hate to say I see the writing on the wall.

Wow, this is sad. If this were the Kon's from a few years ago, this wouldn't be happening. Jon wouldn't have the expensive sports car, wouldn't have the money to spend on drinking, nor afford babysitters to boot. And no wedding ring.....
The Hawaii renewal ceremony was just a bunch of bull. But you know when TLC does the series on the divorce, the ratings will absolutely soar!

Annies said...

I usually don't stick up for these two. But With her away all the time and I am sure even if Jon told her to stay home, Kate would not. He has got to be bored out of his mind. I don't condone his being out at 2AM at a bar but I don't think he is cheating. His wife needs to get her a__ home and help heal her family.

Phyllis said...

Patsy:Why is assumed that Kate would keep the kids?
I think Jon is the better of the two.
Let her pay the child support.
I used to think that. But I can see Kate showing up to court with some bulldog like Gloria Allred who not only gets Kate full custody, but reduces Jon's contact with the kids to limited supervised visitation while HE pays HER child support. On the other hand, if Jon truly is the primary caregiver while Kate barely knows the kids, doesn't know what toothbrushes they use, doesn't know their allergies, and so on, then he has a shot. Plus, the show footage would only help him.

I think that in the event of a split, Kate would win the PR war no matter what. If she got custody, it would be "JON LEFT ME TO RAISE EIGHT CHILDREN ALONE" (even though she'd probably cut him off from the kids, no matter what the court says) and if he got custody, it would be "JON TOOK MY CHILDREN AWAY FROM ME", accompanied with magazine cover featuring Kate with a strategically placed single tear sliding down her face.

pinkdiamond611 said...

This is sad for the children. The most ironic part to me is how quickly everything has unraveled since "The Wedding" and those sickening "It's a Beautiful Life" commercials. Well, at least there is confirmation that it is indeed his car. It all comes back to being worried That there will be no money left for the kids after all their hard work, ala Jackie Coogan. That is the exploitation, using your children as slaves.

Rebecca said...

BUSTED! The only thing is, now people with sympathize with Kate. She doesn't deserve a cheating husband, but she doesn't need to walk away smelling like roses either.

NotaKateFan said...

I'm kind of stumped as to why some people think that Jon is such a good parent. He's just a big child, that makes him a good PLAYMATE not a good parent. His actions do not surprise me very much because he's always seemed to be impulsive like a teenager.

To the person who thinks that they did this for the publicity - do you really think that someone would start (or perpetuate) rumors that he is cheating on his wife for publicity? This is the man who said that he does NOT like publicity for himself, the man who wants to be able to go out and just "be Jon, not Jon & Kate + 8" so I highly doubt he did this for publicity for his show. Maybe to prove a point to his wife though, that is possible. I can see him doing this to rub it in Kate's face that he can have fun too, that he can have a life outside of the show, etc.

Very sad situation because the kids will get hurt. You can't tell me that Maddy and Cara won't hear it at school that someone saw their parents at the grocery store checkout. Those kids are in 2nd grade, they are old enough to read the cover and ask questions.

EGGIBSON said...

I think this is sad! Incredibly sad! Things are starting to come undone.

MissRx said...

I will be curious to see how Kate justifies this. Us Weekly is not the Star or Enquirer, it's pretty responsible and the pictures are there. Although she may just like any publicity or news about her.
This "show" has gotten to be too much. I used to like it and thought the kids were cute and Kate was "relatable". But now she is a witch! The more she kids the nastier she is. She goes around with this smug look like the world owes her just because she is a medical freak show! Nobody asked her to have all of these kids and it's obvious not even her husband is happy! He had 8 kids before age 30! Now he wants to stop but wifey's greed won't let them. Well, they say to be careful what you wish for. She seems to have "everything" but now look.

WorkerBee said...

OMG, Wow. If its true, how completely sad. Because if they'd lived their lives out of the spotlight this probably wouldn't have happened. Certainly not this way. Those poor babies.

Teri said...

I think they will do anything for the ratings. I think this is all for the show. That way everyone will tune in. It was getting so boring in the past episodes, they need someting to spice it up. I dont trust either one of them.

KiSSy said...

If the Gosselins want to protect their kids from a lifetime of tabloid ugliness, they really only have 2 choices at this point.

Stop the show, pull the family out of the spotlight, get divorced and let each parent do what they want

or

Stop the show, pull the family out of the spotlight and get into some serious marital counseling.

The question really and truly is, do they love each other...or just the IDEA of loving each other...or is it about the money?

So often you hear couples who in the course of their marriage have managed to "obtain it all" suddenly realize that they were much happier when times were simpler, when they had nothing but each other.

They need to decide NOW, before they ruin their children's future, if their marriage is worth saving.

Kate wants to be a star and Jon probably just wants to be a regular guy. He's already said he can't be "just Jon" anymore. Those two goals don't work well together for this pair.

Somehow....I think they're about to implode and the whole world will be watching. How sad.

Barbara B. said...

Oh my, what a tangled web we weave when at first we deceive. J&K's reality world is crumbling around them. Hopefully they will stop this charade and own up to the fact that their marriage is in serious trouble. TLC will still air Season 5 touting that they are still a "normal" family, but in our reality they are far from it. Wasn't it not too long ago that the sheeple were saying that the pic w/Jon and his sports car was fake. Well he bought himself a sports car and obviously is enjoying it immensely. That girl was not a friend of Jons as he says. Why would Jon have a college age girl as a friend. Where are Beth, Bob, Kevin, Jodi?? oh that is right they pushed them out of their lives because these honest people probably told theim the truth about what they were doing to their marriage and children. It is funny though that the paps are hanging out in Wernersville, and Bella I think you hit the nail on the head that it is probably locals finally getting the truth out about these 2scammers. My heart breaks for those cute 8 children. They will never enjoy their big mansion because the mansion wasn't bought w/love. Let's see after Season 5 airs that they are perfectlly happy oh my gosh shocker.... J & K will announce that they are separating and divorcing. Unreal. TLC needs to cancel this show now.

Maude said...

So I guess the sports car is no longer rumor. Vroom, vroom Jon.

He calls a "female friend" babe? I don't know (or care) if he's cheated on his wife, but THAT is completely inappropriate.

He had to talk to the bar owner at 11:20? Has he ever heard of the phone? It's this neat invention that allows you to talk to someone without leaving your children late at night in the care of a paid employee. They even have cordless ones now!

I can think of far better PR stunts. This guy is just a stupid, sophmoric, spoiled brat that thinks he should be able to do whatever, whenever, and be excused because he's "on t.v."

God save those kids. I think He's the only one who can help them now.

Barbara B. said...

Here are comments that I sent to TLC regarding this train wreck of a show.

I know these comments will generate the usual "milk toast" response but as a viewer I am really concerned about TLC's exploitation of the Gosselin family. With the new pictures of Mr. Gosselin being out at 2 a.m. in his new sports car with a college age girl I think TLC should seriously consider not airing Season 5 of this show. I am a very perceptive, educated woman and I am appalled by the exploitation of these innocent 8 children. I know that TLC will not be honest and tell us this marriage is in serious trouble but I feel that TLC should take the higher ground and have the Gosselins tell the truth about everything. Even you must know that this marriage probably won't survive and when (which I know you will) air the last episode of Season 5 that a split announcement will come not far after. My heart breaks for those 8 children. Please, please do the right thing and stop this charade. Thank you.

One can only hope. All of us on this site need to seriously pray for those children that their train wreck parents will finally think of their children and not themselves.

AnneMarie said...

Jon? A Poor decision maker? Really? Huh. NEVER saw that coming.

Mostly a Lurker said...

Who calls their plantonic friend "Babe" anyway?

TikiB said...

Has anyone checked on Kate? What does she do at night when she is on the road??? Just asking.

met said...

The show needs to stop. I don't care if they are under contract either. If they care about those children they have to end this charade right now.

I think they care more about the money.

This just proves "money does not buy happiness"

Jessica said...

If Jon & Kate's marriage ends in divorce, I think one of their children, if not all of them, may grow up blaming themselves internally. It's well known children of divorce tend to do so. However, the Gosselin children will have access to public video footage of their parents together. They will be able to watch their parents interact when they were together. And if I was one of the Gosselin eight, I might wonder if it was the show that planted a bad seed in my parent's marriage.

JShine said...

This is what they thrive on though. Attention, attention, attention.

zoey said...

Jon couldnt find a better looking girl to hook up with? seriously no offense to the girl she looks just fine, but there are plenty of model type whores who would love to be on the cover of a magazine involved in a reality star type scandall.

Bella said...

"I think they will do anything for the ratings. I think this is all for the show. That way everyone will tune in. It was getting so boring in the past episodes, they need someting to spice it up. I dont trust either one of them."

See that's my bigger problem with this. IF this is all a bunch of BS, don't either one of them, or TLC know what that will do to their kids?? Specifically Mady/Cara?? Even if they make sure they don't see that mag. cover, they know other kids! You mean to tell me they will monitor whoever their kids talk to and they won't bring it up. We're suppose to assume 8 year-olds can be like "oh that cover about my dad having another woman, it's a lie, just need something to boost the ratings". Whatever.

For me this mag. cover has sealed the deal that keight is headed for divorce sooner then later. All the other crap, the wedding renewal, jon at the bar on Valentines', you could BS about and put the blame on these media mongers as boosting the show. Being out at 2 am with another woman, be it friend or not, with a brand new sports car, yeah that's taking it WAY too far. Jon got busted, big time. It looks like whoever took the pics only got a couple so they got the hell out of dodge big time. Methinks if this was all a ploy he wouldn't have left the bar with her, AND sans wedding ring.

Scruffy's Mom said...

Two thoughts:

Kate's newest book: "My Big Fat American Divorce."

I wonder how the plastic surgeon's wife feels about her role in bringing down this family. I believe the free tummy tuck was the beginning of the end for Kate. Her tummy tuck was a sort of "coming out" party. And, everyone who gave her a free procedure along the way has been a party guest.

Easter weekend Jon was out bar hopping near Philadelphia. A co-worker of mine came into work the following Monday and said that her DIL's sister tends bar in Manayunk and a group of people came in on Friday night and Jon was with them. He was hitting on her and tried to get her to come to a party he was attending. When he found out that she was coming up his way on Saturday to spend the holiday with her sister he wanted her to go with him to a party he was attending on Saturday. She declined and said she was in a serious relationship and was quite happy. My co-worker told her she should have went and took pictures and sold them. After hearing this I do believe Jon hasn't changed.

48andFab said...

I'm not buying Jon's "I can't be just Jon anymore" and that he hates the attention. If that were the case, why did he solicit a TELEVISION NETWORK in the first place?

lifeoriley said...

I agree that whether Jon is actually cheating or not--he is giving the appearance of cheating--IMO, very, very stupid for a person who is in the public eye and who has a reality show based on family life. Also, what about the kids, namely, the twins? Classmates are bound to either see the magazine in their homes or in the market and make comments.
It's sad. If this is Jon's passive-aggressive way of getting at Kate, he's foolish. She will come out looking like a victim (not to me, but to fans).
If Jon wants to get out once in a while, watch a game and have a beer with a buddy, OK--but don't get trashed and leave a bar at 2 am with a female friend.

M said...

Maybe Jon was looking for a "love offering" --they both seem to be really good at that!!

The not-a-nanny?

scooterlibbypie said...

J&KSuckBigTime said...

Okay - here's what I think...Jon didn't want to do season 5 and Kate did...maybe this is Jon's way of getting back at Kate for forcing the issue, in hopes that season 5 will fail. He's probably not bright enough to realize he's shooting himself and his 8 kids in the foot in the process. Way to go Gosselins. Your family members must be SOOOOOOO proud of you! Idiots - total idiots!

I just reread the article. He came out "without his wedding band"

They are done.

nolovelost said...

I don't blame Jon (for cheating, not for duping people). That woman is a steamroller. Even if he came to her before their marriage had completely fallen apart and said he wanted to stop the show she NEVER would have allowed him. She now has everything she wanted: money, money, money. Congrats.

Tony said...

I don't remember the timeline, but could April 18th when Jon was out and about be the same day that Kate left a book signing in WA state very early to catch a flight? It just makes me wonder if she decided to go home early to check up on the home front.

Just wondering---

Barbara B. said...

Maybe the girl is one of the 24/7 nannies? he! He! I don't think Jon is cheating but I think he is certainly reliving his 20's. Who is also to say what Kate does on her many book tours? She sure has been flirting alot this past season. The comments on the other site are just unbelievably naive'. Can they really not smell the roses? I don't think that this picture is a publicity stunt for Season 5. I am eagerly awaiting the response from my comment from TLC. Once I get it I will post it.

Casey and Smudge said...

Wow, he's sunk to a brand new low. All the focus is on the fact that he had another girl/woman with him in his car. How about the DRINKING AND DRIVING - a criminal offense, let's catch this guy! Nothing he drives is low profile, so start pulling him over when he's out in the middle of the night before someone gets hurt. He's an alcoholic without the brains to call a cab, and I don't think he's going to always be able to find sober college co-eds to chauffeur him about. And Kate doesn't drive, so...

That's what angers me. Nevermind the fact that he's immature. Or that she's not a nurturer. There are plenty of bad parents out there. Their lifestyles just aren't glorified on television so we can "live vicariously" through them. They aren't the only couple who stay in a loveless marriage and put their children through a decade or two of emotional abuse either. I don't care that they get free things and act ungratefully. Not condoning it, but I will not be watching it, or any of the other "family" shows TLC loves to air.

And let's stop sticking up for Jon as the good parent. He's got no one's best interests at heart, even his own. He's proven to be irresponsible and incapable of making good choices. I wouldn't leave a pet rock in the care of either of them. How long before his behaviour escalates and he starts drinking at home or driving drunk during the day when there are more cars/pedestrians on the streets? This is what makes me angry! He can make bad choices for his family, but he has no right to risk their lives or the lives of others!

PAmama said...

My cousin met him in a bar in the reading area and she said he was very nice and that he had a driver now. although, who would call their driver babe? I'd like to run into him at a bar sometime and get some pictures.

"BUSTED! The only thing is, now people with sympathize with Kate. She doesn't deserve a cheating husband, but she doesn't need to walk away smelling like roses either."
I don't sympathize with Kate and she does deserve a cheating husband IMHO..
its the kids that don't deserve this hot mess...

K8 H8ter said...

I've posted the article from Dlisted.com concerning the story. It is a little explicit,so I have censored it a bit. It is hilarious though!

"In the new issue of UsWeekly, they have pictures of Jon, the tortured husband from Jon and Kate Plus 8, leaving a club near his house at 2 in the morn with some trick. According to a source, Jon showed up to Legends Lounge at around 11:30 at night. A few hours later, he was spotted leaving with a woman. The source said Jon "could barely walk."

Um, that's because he doesn't have a nutsack anymore. It's been gilded and is hanging on Kate's rearview mirror.

Jon was overheard telling the lady, "Hey, babe! Babe! Give me my jacket!" When he spotted the paps, he told her a** 2get into the car and then they sped off into the night. ESCANDALO!

Jon tried his best to explain the whole thing to UsWeekly, "I went to Legends to speak to the owner. A friend of mine wanted to check out my car, so I let her drive it to her car. Yes, I have female friends -- but that is all she is. I'm not going to end my friendships just because I'm on TV."

"I let her drive it to her car" is code for "penis went into vagina", right?

Just because he was seen leaving a club with another chick doesn't mean they are doing illegal sex with each other. Jon probably hired her because he wants to know what it feels like to speak more than 2 sentences to another woman without her ripping his froat out with her bare teefs. Besides, Kate is never removing her claws from his no-nut area. She has a damn book to promote and 8 children to whore out. She can't do it alone!

And what dumb a_ho would have an affair with a dude who has 8 kids? Wait, was OctoCrazy in Pennsylvania recently?"

I mentioned this once before- I can't attend but I'm hoping someone from the central PA area can! The PA Women's show is being held in Harrisburg at the Farm Show Arena on May 1, 2 and 3. They are still advertising BOTH Jon and Kate AND some new text has been added to the site info- apparently they will BOTH be signing autographs after the talk at 12 noon, May 2nd. I hope someone can go and report back :) :)

LisaH said...

Perhaps Jon & Hate are already seperated (but still putting on the facade of being married and living together)? That is the impression I am under.

All in all, the man has been miserable for years. You can see it on his face during the couch interviews. In fact, as I was watching the Hate's Labor Day episode and Hate started crying for apparently no reason, towards the end, I thought to myself "I wonder if that is when their marriage ended and that was why she was crying in the episode?"

That's nuts. You're actually blaming the wife of a plastic surgeon for EVERYTHING? That's the most ridiculous thing I've heard. Not only is it just naive to make that statement, but at the time that special aired this was a poor family trying to deal. Her stomach was disgusting and no doubt was going to have to be fixed one way or another!

I've heard some crazy things, but this takes the cake.

Jen K said...

My husband has female friends, mostly from work, but I can tell you that if there was ever a photo of my husband with one of his female friends at 2am...well, he'd have hell to pay and he'd know it. He knows better, as do I. Now, add in that Jon has eight kids left alone with the "not-a nanny" while he parties while Kate is away....how dumb do the fans have to be to not see that something is rotten in Denmark here?

Any husband out with a female (friend or not) at 2am while the wife is away and the kids are stuck with a sitter is a husband who has something to hide. Plain and simple. That wouldn't be ok in my marriage (which is a very trusting relationship) so I can't fathom why that is ok in theirs.

KiSSy said...

Does it seem like they have taken on an attitude of being "characters" on their show? As in, "we're not really parents, we just play them on TV."?

It's sad, but I can almost envision an exchange between one of the kids and a psychiatrist 10 years from now, "I was Mady on Jon and Kate + 8".

These people have become performers, feeding on drama and gossip to promote their show and line their pockets. It's quickly becoming a soap opera, a sad sorry real life soap opera. What kind of person in "reality" WANTS this kind of attention on their personal life...I mean what SANE person?

Seriously, I think they have detached themselves from who they truly are. Reality TV is not reality at all.

tallblonde said...

Seems to me all is following the "Kate Plan" from the season finale - she LOVES doing the show - she'll keep doing one in some incarnation of what is on now....Jon HATES the show - he knows what he's been up to - the sham that is their marriage - and possible stories that could come out - resume being the sloppy drunk you once were, Jon - Take off the wedding ring - troll for chicks in bars - get photographed - exit stage left.

The sad part is Kate probably couldn't care less....

Cloversmom said...

I think that this is Jon's way of getting out, publicly humiliate Kate until she cannot take it anymore. He is very passive-aggresive, and this way he doesn't have to leave her, she can kick him out. He doesn't care about being the bad guy, because he ends up with a pretty young thing on his arm.
I also agree that I would not be ok if my husband decided to do a 2am car-viewing with a female friend, and I am pretty laid back.

Daner said...

Yes, Jon is a jerk. I can't help but wonder if Kate is messing around with her "bodyguard" as has been rumored. Maybe they both have an arrangement where they can step outside the marriage. It wouldn't surprise me coming from Kon

Amazed said...

Perez Hilton and the National Enquirer both posted stories about Jon's alleged infidelity. If you read some of the comments, most of the readers are siding with Jon. Interesting...

Here is where I PERSONALLY know the "I let a friend drive my new sports car" story has to be a lie....

I have a 2-seater roadster type sports car....I don't want anyone even PARKING beside it - much less DRIVING it !!! *LOL*

Jon couldnt find a better looking girl to hook up with? seriously no offense to the girl she looks just fine, but there are plenty of model type whores who would love to be on the cover of a magazine involved in a reality star type scandall.

Are you kidding? Your concern is that the woman isn't good-looking enough to grace the cover of a magazine?

Carly said...

New title for upcoming season(s) of the show -

Single/divorced Kate Plus 8

And I would give custody to Kate, as I would be worried about the heavy drinking and DUI (not to mention leaving your kids to go to bars and cheat with young girls)!

2badsosad said...

Let's recap:

Jon's previous scandelous behavior of hanging out with college coeds and playing beer pong lead to his excuse of 'I did not cheat on Kate'. His most recent behavior of meeting a 'friend' at a bar at 11 30pm and allowing some woman (the friend?) to test drive his car, while out until 2am and allegedly quite under the influence, brings the excuse of 'Im not going to stop having friends because I am on TV'.
There appears to be two common denominators involved in both scenerios. Alcohol and women.
While 'Wendy' is away, 'Peter Pan' likes to play!!

Carol said...

This verse made me think of J&K. Maybe this makes him think it's ok to live in his garage "crib" rather than in the mansion with mommy dearest?? lol

Proverbs 21:9 (New Living Translation) 9 It’s better to live alone in the corner of an attic than with a quarrelsome wife in a lovely home.

Niki said...

Is Jon really DUMB enough to carry on an affair in his own town, where everyone knows him? and to meet the woman at a local bar.

Surely, he's not that stupid.

RememberMe said...

I guess Ms. Notta is there at 2 am too. Just "helping" of course. Not "nannying"

carlsbad05 said...

I feel sad for this situation. I used to be a big fan of the show, and then stopped watching for a long time. I still enjoy the old episodes back when they were all just "normal". Very sad. Wish they would cancel the show for good. Wish people would stop endorsing Kate's book tour. These people need to go back to reality, get real jobs, and stop getting paid for doing nothing.

KiSSy said...

Niki, I don't think it's stupidity, I think it's desperation.

Maybe he WANTS to get caught...maybe he doesn't even care. I think he just wants out. Obviously, SAYING he didn't want to do Season 5 wasn't enough....

Lisa K said...

Jon's excuses are so lame. I had better excuses than that when I was 16 years old and stayed out to late. Tell the truth Jon!

NYMom said...

Jen K said...

Maybe this was already mentioned, but the National Enquirer has a story about him kissing a brunette girl at a motel on what appears to be the same day as the bar incident mentioned in US.

Wow, it is really sad what has happened to this family. I recently caught a rerun of the episode where Kate has the tummy tuck. They were so in love at that time. When Kate arrived back home after a week, she showered Jon with kisses and hugs and told him she missed him. Shen then proceeded to the tups and gave each of them hugs and kisses and told she never wanted to be away from them for that long again. It's horrible to see what has become of their marriage and family. They no longer have friends/contact with extended family and their marriage is on the brink. The children, it appears, are now being raised by nannies. I hope the fancy house/cars/trips was worth it Jon and Kate. These material things sure cost you a lot.

Mommy in PA said...

M said...
Maybe Jon was looking for a "love offering" --they both seem to be really good at that!!


............


HAHA! That is too funny!

Really, the kids would probably be better off if Aunt Jodi got custody when J&K get divorced! She would give them a normal life and really do what is in their best interest!

JustSaying.... said...

OK, if I'm a parent and my kid is in the same class as the twins and I see that mag at the check out, you can bet that I'm going to buy it to read the gossip. This is just human nature. The kids in the twins' class aren't going to have to see it at the check out counter because they're all going to see it on the coffee table at home. I feel more sorry for the twins because the tups can still be sheltered from it.

JJ28 said...

So that's for sure his new car. Jon himself sent an e-mail to the magazine and said he let his friend drive his new car. And all the true JK8 fans were saying it wasn't Jon in the 1st pic of the new car, it was prob a friend's car, he would never spend money on it.. well... WRONG. He selfishly did buy a new sports car and he's picking up young college girls in it!

I can't wait to see the new episodes for season 5 now... I can just see it now... "Daddy Gets Caught!"..."Daddy Moves Out!"... "Kate and the Divorce Lawyers".... "Jon Gets Served!(Divorce Papers)" ... "The New Team of Nannies to Replace Daddy"... etc.

I bet the number of viewers would triple with a season like that!

Blossom said...

I'm just curious. Why do some people think Kate is screwing around with the bodyguard? Is it just because he's a man who's with her a lot and that people are "looking" for things to expose about her?

I personally think it's ridiculous. But if there's proof, please share.

I feel bad for Mady and Cara. You know parents at their school know about this.

Barbara B. said...

I don't think that we can see the Enquirer as a relevant article. Remember they put aliens on their covers. We don't need to speculate who was with the kids, they can deny it all they can but they have full-time nannies taking care of their children 24/7. It would be interesting to see how many full/part-time employees they have for their estate. They need to stop the lies and come clean. Hopefully their viewership will go down for Season 5 but alas people love to see a train wreck and they will probably have the highest ratings ever.

Ah, but that is never the issue when a man cheats. It is how the woman makes the man feel that counts....in his mind. Kate spends her time demeaning & belittling Jon, which I believe is due to some disturbing unresolved issues she is dealing with. It makes her look ugly to Jon and to us viewers.

Bicoastal said...

Hmmmm, looks like TLC (Tool 'n' Loser Channel) will need a new angle to promote their money cows.

How's 'bout "Alimony-Schmalimony: I said 'Hit Me, Bartender.'"

I can just hear the woeful KON fans now - poor Jon has a drinking problem; how can the public ridicule him and his family at a time like this?

It's easy; Kate and Jon Gosselin are running a scam (the KON job, if you will) that would make an experienced grifter blush.

Let's see how TLC plays this one; maybe an episode with a substance abuse counselor coming to the KON estate? Of course Jon will claim his drinking is due to his father's death, not his phony, lying "life" on TV.

If I were you Jon, I'd get in that car and keep driving. You likely have one bestselling "tell-all" in you that will keep you in bar-babes the rest of your life.

That Girl said...

I'm from the same area as KON and I've been to Legends. Too many times, unfortunately. And the only reason you go there is to get laid. It's a total meat-market, sleazehole bar that caters to kids in their early 20's. Whether Jon knows the owner or not (which he might, since a lot of people around here do) it's still the kind of place you normally don't see people his age. I go there and feel old, and I'm only 27!

Also...I think I recognize the girl in the car. If it is who I think it is - BAD CHOICE! Seriously, who goes after a guy with 8 kids anyway?

The idea of paparazzi following Jon to/from Legends is hilarious.

nanasez said...

"From my understanding, there are three nannies, working 8 hour shifts, around the clock. If that's so, if the children are taken care of every night, safe and snug in their beds, there is absolutely nothing keeping Jon in the house when Kate is away."
-------------
Cheating or no cheating, this is the crux of the matter to me - those kids are not being reared by their parents, they are being cared for by nannies. Heck, the Renovation Nation guy had more parental-teaching-type moments with the kids in the last show than we EVER see Jon or Kate have with the children.

Kate and John lie. "We don't have a nanny - we just have someone to help out a few hours a week." Bull. From what we're seeing reported, Jon is out quite regularly late at night while Kate is thousands of miles away walking out on book signings. (Where does she spend all of HER time on the road when she's cutting every appearance short after less than an hour? Kate time? Spa days? Crying on the shoulder of her private security man who accompanies her on all of her trips?)

These two people have effectively abandoned their children to nannies. (The only way Jon would have the freedom to be out late at night so often with Kate away would be if there was at least one live-in nanny. Is that why we don't see the kids' bedrooms anymore? They don't want us to see the expanse of the 26 acre estate. They haven't wanted us to know about the pool, yet. They haven't let the cameras have a good look at the media room/man-cave withe the huge television. Maybe we're not to know that there's a room in the tups' wing for the live-in nanny?)

Kate is chasing the almighty dollar, and Jon is chasing his lost youth. No one but the nanny is there for the children.

TandLMommy28 said...

You know, I hate divorce. I hate it. I don't believe in it. But in this case, I'm actually hoping that it happens. Because I really, really think that the only hope for those precious, precious children is for their parents to split up. And that is a sad situation to be in for those poor kids. If Jon and Kate officially divorce, there will be no more show. How can they be America's "favorite" family anymore if they are divorced? They can't. The show could not go on anymore and they would be cut off from all the freebies and trips and they would be forced to focus on what really matters. Who knows, maybe if all that happened they would see what went wrong and they would get back together. I guess that would be the best case scenario. But regardless, I am praying my heart out for those kids and if a divorce is the only way to rescue them than, I really hope that it happens - and soon!

BJCMOM said...

I've bashed Kate, I've bashed Jon. I've been appalled at the some of the kids' behaviors from time to time. But now I am just sad. Thinking of the twins and what their parents have now done to them-this cover is the worst so far, in my opinion. How mortifying for little girls in the 2nd grade. They are old enough to "get it" and they never chose this life. I can't even say more than my heart is hurting for them. To look back at season 1 and see how this exploded with no complaints form either parent has my stomach sick.

Good Grief-
no my concern is not that she is not pretty enough for a mag cover.. im saying im sure Prettier women would want a piece of jon's fame so, maybe this girl is just a friend. why would he settle for a regular girl when there are plenty out there that love reality stars and their 15 min of fame

RealMom said...

Publicity stunt people. Even his explanation sounds like a high schooler put it together. I would think there would be no statement issued instead of this childish crap. Isn't that what PR people do? And by writing to TLC you are playing right into theirs hands. They love this kind of stuff. I bet the execs (the same ones who bring you Tree Man and 4000 lb woman) are chomping at the bit to see the publicity this generates for the Season opener and for the rest of the speaking engagement. They really know how to play us.

Hey, maybe this explains why Kate bailed-out on the book signing gig last week?

Her PR agent could have texted her "Jon f*cked-up again. There's more photos."

Looks like that fame thing cuts both ways, eh Kate?

Amanda said...

"what about the kids, namely, the twins? Classmates are bound to either see the magazine in their homes or in the market and make comments."

I believe you're thinking of tabloids such as Weekly World News. The Enquirer broke the story about John Edwards cheating, and has led the coverage in cases such as Clinton/Monica, OJ, and Dr. Phil giving up his license after ethics complaints. The Enquirer may not have the reputation of the Washington Post in the days of Watergate, but among the tabloids it is the most accurate in breaking stories such as this one with J&K.

karma said...

We have our Tammy Faye and we have our Jim Baker. Now, we have our Jessica Hahn.

Unless this is a poorly concocted publicity stunt, by the end of business today, this young lady will have a sizeable offer from one of several media outlets. Remember, jon and kate are largely "d" listers, so the amount will not be huge, but enough to get the exlusive. We'll all find out that this is the tip of the iceberg.

Then the gosselins will finally have their highly coveted 15 minutes of real fame.

enjoy it.

Seriously?? said...

Anonymous Zoey, seriously??? THATS what youre thinking about, how good looking the girl is? I definitely think there are SO many more important things to worry about in this situation.

kate is a cocky bitch said...

Perhaps Jon is doing this because he wants to series to be canceled. It's obvious Jon and The Queen are no longer on the same page. I hope Jon finds his way and remembers that his kids must come first. As far as The Queen is concerned she'll never change because you can't teach an old dog new tricks.

WorkInPR said...

I could buy the publicity stunt angle if it were earlier in the day, but at 2 AM? No PR person is going to have them do that because it makes them look bad as parents - one away and no one home with the kids but the "notananny".

Now that Jon's been caught "with his pants down" the PR folks may use it to Kate's advantage. Kate can now be the scorned but forgiving wife...we're working on our problems and we will work through them, we are still together....It gives her fodder for a whole new book and a whole new book tour.

Can you imagine if they actually do get divorced? She can work the whole single mom of 8 - wait that's been done by octomom...

DeeB said...

Just a few thoughts:

1. Ahhh Kate. Karma is a real bitch, isn't it? To paraphrase something you taught the children, "you get what you get and you don't complain."

2. No matter what his ignorant, ill-advised excuse is; he can't make this look any better than it does. And it looks really bad.

3. Actually, I've never cared any more for Jon than I do for Kate. He is and has always been a loser. He's never held a job for very long, never even had a job that someone didn't get for him, clearly doesn't care much for working and makes stupid, poor choices. And to think that he is the better parent makes me a little sick. Don't forget the walk in the woods. Yes, he does all the hard stuff for the kids (bath, getting them up, dressed, etc.) but that's because he has no backbone and is scared to sit down with Kate and work out better parenting arrangements. Neither of those two are best for the children, but they won't be the first or the last children with bad parents.

4. What an embarassment to the children.

5. All of you good God fearing church folks who have had them in your churches throughout the land, please take note that a portion of the money you donated for love offerings and signed pictures has gone into booze and flooze. Congratulations. Good decision making churches. You should have listened to GWOP.

6. Yes, everyone is right. This is just all so very, very sad. But we saw it coming, didn't we....

Stephanie said...

I am not suprised that my comment I posted never made it on your site. I was actually at Legends that night and met Jon and his friend. I guess because I am not hammering him and talking negative about him my post will be deleted.

All of these stories everyone are posting are incorrect. For one Legends is located INSIDE of the hotel these stories speak of. So many lies it is sad. I was there and saw it all myself. I am actually hurt seeing the night get twisted and twisted around so I can imagine how Jon feels waking up to this crap.
I have a picture of him from that night and would never think to sell it.

Wondering If It's True said...

Something about this only being reported on US Weekly's website suggests this might just be tabloids... God knows the junk they come up with for others in the spotlight... One of the links on their website homepage is "Celebrities Tricked Into Strip Club Opening." I mean really? How reliable is this article? I wouldn't be surprised if Jon is having a "wild time," and if he is that is just immature and needs to stop, but I just think the source of this post might be less then reliable.

Sue said...

The thing that gets me is he said he went to talk to the owner of the bar/club. I know there are places normally in BIG cities that can open at 10 at night but I doubt this is the case here. So WHY would he be going to talk to the owner at almost midnight? When I hear someone say "I went to talk to the owner" I assume they went for business, work out details for a party or something like that. Who does business at midnight? He could be friends with the owner and went to hang out which is FINE but wouldn't you say "I know the owner and I went to hang out with him and some other friends at the bar"

SuzyQ said...

Publicity stunt or not (I happen to think "not") - this is the absolute worst thing in the world that could happen to those poor 8 children.
How utterly horrible and sad it will be for them when their parents get a divorce, mainly because they will blame themselves for it.
Also, they will come to realize what lies they have been told their whole lives, such as; during the HI vow renewel debacle - when Kate explains that they are doing it for the kids to let them know that mom and dad will always be together. Oh wait, except when mommy goes on book signing tours and daddy goes skiing with the bros. Oh, and also when daddy goes out drinking at 2 am with some random babe.
So, so, so sad - my heart is breaking for the children and especially for the older 2 that understand things a lot more!
I don't agree with what Jon is doing, but I also can't blame him either. What man in their right man would stay married to someone that treats them like she does?!?!, she has an obvious hatred of ALL men (even the little ones).
This is a big lesson for any wanna-be celebrity that wants their own "reality show" - reality bites! And it just bite their marriage and family in the butt...

karmashebeabitch said...

For those determined to think this was an innocent occasion, think again. Jon was outed to the paps by someone who knows him. How else did the paps just happen to find him? This wasn't a one time thing either. Jon has been stepping out for weeks now. He didn't stop his bar visiting even after that was reported.

MorganfromWV said...

I feel so awful for those kids! I'm 26 and my parents are getting a divorce and I absolutely hate it when people come up to me and whisper " are your parents getting a divorce?". Can you even begin to imagine how this will affect those children.?!?
I'm old enough to understand that my parents problems are not my fault and there is nothing I can do to fix it. Those kids DO NOT! They are going to grow up thinking they caused this by being born.
These poor kids are powerless! They have become their parents meal ticket and have pretty much lost all chance of a normal childhood/life. Does no one remember what happend to the Caulkin kids, how about Gary Coleman?? Almost exact same scenerios just differnt times and people!

Lisa said...

What is that saying about "All publicity is good publicity"?
These people will do whatever they have to and to whomever they have to (the children!) to keep the gravy train rolling and their 15 minutes of fame (Kate). It is certainly a shame, but other celebrities have said that fame is like a drug. Rosie O'Donnell wrote a book about it. I think Kate is hooked - no matter how fabricated in her own mind their fame may be!

Cannotthinkofascreenname said...

Is there a morals clause in the Gosselin's contract with TLC? Like, if one spouse is cheating or in the event of a divorce TLC can cancel the show or not pay the couple. I would be shocked if the sponsors did not have such a deal with the couple.

While TLC wants high ratings, there is no way they want this nonsense going on with the couple.
The whole Hawaii wedding nonsense was in reply to negative comments.

If you saw Jon at a bar, in the middle of the night, when his wife was out of town and his children were left home (where J&K say there is no nanny), and he was driving a new, two-seater sports car purchased with money made airing video of his kids on their potties, then that's enough for me to know that everything I've thought about these people is true - and none of it is good.

actually, why would i "worry" about Jon and Kates situation. everyone is speculating, myself included. i think they are both a couple of jokes and i could care less if they get divorced. i "worry" about things that are happening to me in my life. not about a couple of fools on television. i like to snicker and poke fun of them. i think they are both lame and i stand by statement that Jon could potentially do much better than that average looking girl--- as for everyone who is feeling sorry for them...why? they are/were a train wreck waiting to happen. just sit back, relax, have a few jokes at their expense and dont get your panties up in a bunch over them =)
Cheers!

Bella said...

With the argument that this is all another stunt by keight to keep ratings up, stay in the news, etc. Aside the fact of how this further messes up their kids, why do it so LATE at night? I could almost see it if it was like 7 pm or something but from 11-2 am, uh hello? Several people have posted they were there or know of that bar. Why would jon be there so late, then leave with a "friend" and have her drive his car for sh&* and giggles? That's where I'm leaning to he got caught versus this was planted by the PR team.

Agreeing with another poster, if that's the intention I can't believe any PR team would be like "yeah go out have a few drinks, but do it way later in the night, preferably closing down the bar". Unless they want to spin it as jon waited until the kiddies were in bed. Oh wait, that would mean someone else would have to be watching them...

I just don't get how this story got SO twisted. Whether he made out with a girl or not, but pics show him (and looking none to pleased, more like scared and ticked) with another girl in his brand new sports car.

There's drumming up fake publicity for your show and there's being a total F'idiot.

Monica said...

This is so very sad & yet exactly what the people who post here have been predicting. Their show used to be about their lives. Their lives are now the show & this is just the beginning of the end of their picture perfect family life. The odds are that this wouldn't have happened had they not had such public lives. Kate has obviously changed since we first met/viewed themon TV, and not for the better. It is very sad to say, but everyone knows Kate probably forced him away. Their children are going to see all of this when they are old enought to 'surf the web' & more than likely come to the conlclusion that we have all come to. Hopefully, if they do divorce, the children will not alienate their father. You know that Kate will try as hard as she possibly can to get them to be against their father and on her side.

NCLindsey said...

This whole situation hurts my heart. I truly hope this will be the straw that breaks the camel's back, so to speak... whether it is through sponsors pulling their advertising, TLC pulling the plug on their #1 rated family show due to a loose cannon, or through divorce... the show needs to end. How they continue this farce??

And to think of those sweet 8 faces, my heart just breaks! They did not ask for this! So, Jon, Kate, Not-A-Nanny, production assistants, producer, director, Aunt Jodi, Beth, PR folks, Security Man... SOMEONE in the inner circle, whoever reads this blog... PLEASE impress upon the severity of this situation to Jon and Kate. Please pull the plug before the viewing public actually witnesses the car hit the wall doing 90.

NICOLEM said...

You know why noone can stop watching the show? Because we all saw this coming awhile ago. We saw them transform from small time folks to a famous family. Now we are all hooked on this huge train wreck coming, we know it amd see ot, but Jon and Kate surely dont! Thats why its such good entertainment!

Jon is a guy-a nice dopey guy-who got in over his head. He didnt think he would ever have 8 kids! I cant quite figure out how Kate got him to walk down the aisle with her. She does not seem his type at all. He is over her, that whatever they had is gone and now he is out playing around. Just doing what he did before Kate!

Kate's obvious attraction to Jon was his slacker, bad boy personality-easy to like growing up as a preachers daughter-so cliche.

They stuck together in the beginning because they had babies and toddlers. They had to. But as the kids get older and more independent and this fame has taken hold, neither one wants to stay at home.

She is chasing fame, money, looks, etc that were taboo growing up. She has totally lost herself but claims it is God's will. I wonder when the last time she had really spoken to God. I bet He is talking to her but she wont listen. Everyone hates Kate! We love to hate her!

While she is off Jon doesnt want to do it all himself-who would? Its tough to be a single parent! Not to mention his image of himself has in the public's eyes been reduced to that of a weak, spineless castrated male. Its no surprise Jon is in bars with younger women. A male's ego has to be stroked-thats how men are. Do you ever really see Kate do that? I bet among men in social situations, men pity him. I am sure he picks up on that. He tried to express his frustration and she didnt listen.

So thats why we are all watching Season 5. Its all the brewings of real perfect storm! TLC will cash in. The kids will be the losers-but I think they were from the beginning. Even without the show I dont think this marriage was made to last.

kansas05 said...

Its posted under free discussion how kate left her book signing in bellevue,WA around 7:30 and it was supposed to last till 9...wernesville is 3 hours ahead making it 1030 there...but you anything someone did call her during the signing and thats why she left early. I'm not a fan of kate, but I have to say it would be hard hearing about your husbands infidelty during the book sale.

Charlie Rose said...

DeeB you said about everything I wanted to post.

And for those of you who said you were there - whatever - Jon has a history of stepping out and drinking on Kate. Let the dogs lie where they will. The truth will always come out sooner or later.

Deal with it.

The only thing we should be considered about is the children. They are the ones who will suffer. The families of Jon and Kate must be horrified of the events that are unfolding. Say prayers for them as well.

Who calls their plantonic friend "Babe" anyway?The same type of person who uses the word "crib." Seriously. I hear a ton of men and woman just slightly below my age (late 20s) using the word babe to refer to friends of theirs. It's pretty much synonomous with dude.

Not that I am defending their marriage or his behavior. Just pointing that out.

Very well put! I don't give a damn about all the skanky details. If I was a fan, these "parents" actions would be a slap in my face.

Do you honestly think that Kate cares or hasn't known about Jon's infidelity? She isn't the perfect saint herself and could care less about Jon or the children. If she did, she wouldn't be out selling her soul to the devil.

Shame on these parents, but SHAME ON TLC.

IT'S TIME TO PULL THE PLUG.

Sue said...

Let me preface this with I DON'T believe in cheating and I KNOW marriage is more than intimacy.

With Kate out of town all the time and being the shrew she is I am sure Jon is lonely sometimes. I sometimes wonder if they ever had sex or just went right to the specialist. (j/k). I know couples who have 1 or 2 kids and have trouble finding time for each other. Then add in the fact she is gone for weeks at a time. There is no marriage. AND no I am not defending them and their 8 kids but really think about it, it would be hard to find time.

Ok I take that last statement back. With kids in bed at 7 and 3 hour naps in the afternoon, I guess they would have time to sneak away for their own afternoon nap! (wink,wink) Problem is there is a house to clean.

Obviously I am not in their bedroom but many people who cheat is because they are not getting their needs met at home with their spouse (I don't just mean sex, it's hand holdilng, curling up on the couch together, hugging, having a conversation that is NOT just about the kids etc)

As Kate said their life is their job adn their job is their life or whatever it was. I truly think Jon wants a bit more in his life. yes, he likes the money and the things that come with it and he doesn't want to have to "work" for it.

I know everyone says Jon is not a good parent but remember the OLD episodes when even Kate said he was really good about listening to his kids and understanding their needs. Yes, I know it doesn't mean much coming from her. yes he is a lazy bum who has exploited his kids BUT I think he truly loves his children (not just when they were babies), I don't think he wanted 8 kids but he loves them. I know taking care of your kids (by like having a job) is part of being a good parent BUT all of us who watch and take the time to do all of this have assisted him in NOT having to financially take care of his kids.

Anyways I am not sure what my point is.

TIME TO PULL PLUG said...

Everyone should have listened to Jodi. What did she have to lose by telling the truth last year? Absolutely nothing. She had already lost her visitation rights of her nieces and nephews. TLC should be ashamed of themselves and destroying this family. Not that the Gosselins are innocent. They are far from being innocent. They have hurt many people in their rise to stardom. And for what? THIS??????

I won't even ask if it was worth it, obviously it wasn't.

I am with all of you who have said pray for the children and the family. They are all innocent bystanders.

KittenKatinCanada said...

My first thought after reading the story was for those eight sweet children. Their mother is on one side of the country flogging a book, while their father is spending his time in a bar with a female 'friend'. One wonders when these two ever spend time with their children beyond the shooting commitments of their show.

Body language speaks loud and clear and for some time it has appeared that Jon and Kate can hardly stand to be in the same room together let alone share a house or even a couch for that matter. I wouldn't be surprised if they now have "an arrangement" - rather than officially splitting, they have privately agreed to lead separate lives. When Kate is away Jon is with the kids. When Jon is way, Kate stays home. That way they never have to spend time together and they don't have to destroy the illusion fed to their viewers of a loving family trying to get by for the sake of the kids.

I also predict we'll see alot less of Jon in the new shows - he wants out (of the show and apparently the relationship) and is now not so 'marketable'.

Aeris said...

Wow, the s*** is really hitting the fan now. I have no sympathy whatsoever for KON. If they were halfway decent people, they would have stopped the show when the first "I hate Mady" social group popped up over a year ago. I do sympathize for the kids...it's a "beautiful world" indeed.

karma said...

kate also left the signing in mcdonough georgia early on the 25'th. So jons behavior cannot be used to explain her early departure in WA.
She left after 30 minutes, angry at the modest turn out (about 200-300). It's been a pretty consistent complaint.

HBailey said...

Assuming this is all true....I think it's very sad and just goes to show you what money and fame CAN do to people. Not everyone who becomes rich and famous has these issues, but many do.

It's very sad.

Megan said...

Is anyone else surprised that there hasn't yet been an official comment from the Gosselins' or TLC's PR (that's public relations, yeah thanks for explaining that one, Jon) people?

This story is all over the gossip rags - internet and print. I'm surprised we haven't heard an official statement regarding "their love and commitment to each other and the truth" blah blah blah

what a trainwreck.

laura weiss said...

Yeah yeah yeah...it's all a publicity stunt...

...at the expense of eight innocent little children.

laura weiss said...

All of you good God fearing church folks who have had them in your churches throughout the land, please take note that a portion of the money you donated for love offerings and signed pictures has gone into booze and flooze. Congratulations. Good decision making churches. You should have listened to GWOP.

Well, one thing that we have learned is that money cannot buy class. These two certainly have confirmed that.

The poor kids don't have a chance.

Carla Smith said...

For those of you are trying to sell the "he was just stepping out concept." First of all, let me remind you that if he was merely stepping out, then perhaps he could have done it more discreetly and not at the local meat market. When a couple goes around the "circuit" promoting their Christian values and family, you better believe they better be truly living it. There is no way on God's green earth that he wasn't cheating on Kate. He was looking to hook up. Jon said "I see myself at the age of 54 with a 19 year old on my arm."

Yeah true blue Christian talk.

Whoever claims to be a Christian and buys this BS, needs to re-read their Bible and rededicate themselves. They are obviously worshipping false teachers.

Let's Get This Straight said...

Kate leaves her book signings early because she is a DIVA in her own mind. Plain and simple. Not because of something that happened back home. She didn't want to spend anymore time with the sheeple than necessary although they are the ones who pays her bills.

I just wanted to point out that my Vette would sooooooooooo kick Jon's Nissan's ass...to. The. Curb.

LOL. I could't resist.

Sue said...

I don't consider the Gosselin's celebrities because they have no talents and are rich and famous because of the children.

How many celebrities leave their kids home with the Nanny's?? One parent maybe oversees filming a movie and the other is out until all hours. Do we find that acceptable or do we hold a double standard for the Gosselins? Just curious

white flag? said...

Is it me or are the lines between the Haters, Trolls, Sheeple, etc. getting blurrier by the minute?


At the end of the day the gosselins have proven the most vocal detractor correct.

The only expression that I can think of is "it is what it is".

If you browse all of the blogs, even the support blogs, you wouldnt know which one you were on if you didnt look at the address.

It's officially over....

Save the Children said...

The argument taking place today in the Gosselin household is bound to be a doozy! Kate yelling at Jon saying it is ALL HIS fault and Jon blaming it all on Kate. Neither one of them will see that they are BOTH at fault. I hope to God that those poor children are not bearing witness to that particular fight.

Abby said...

Well, I guess this explains why the kids' valentines cards were signed just "Mommy" in the "Going Green" episode.

I'd never condone cheating but Kate's such a witch that I'm tempted to cut Jon some slack. Besides, I wouldn't be surprised if Kate cheated first. She's been traveling forever and if she's only at her book signing for 30 minutes...what's she doing the other 23 and a half hrs.?

I just feel bad for those poor kids. This could get really ugly.

Be Careful What You Wish For said...

White Flag said...It's officially over....

I pray to God it is.

There was a reason and purpose for this Site and it wasn't to bash Kate or Jon. It was because of the 8 innocent children who have no choice in this matter. Kate said they would stop if the family says so, well, they are screaming it from the mountaintop Woman and you better take heed.

Sue said...

When a couple goes around the "circuit" promoting their Christian values and family, you better believe they better be truly living it.

I know they did the church circuit but I don't ever really recall Jon going on and on about being a Christian. It was really Kate that pushed they were a good Christian family. God this God that. I never went to any of their things so maybe at the churches he sang a different tune but as far as the show goes, he doesn't say much. For all we know he never even went to church before he met Kate and maybe the only reason he goes now is so his children are raised with faith. I am not great at going to church very often but when I have children I will be sure that they are raised going every Sunday (or Saturday depending on your religion) as I did growing up. Please don't beat me up saying I am not a good Catholic b/c I don't go to church.

Anyways back to my point, yes, did Jon take advantage of the people at the church with "love offerings" etc but as far as I know from the SHOW only I don't really recall him going on and on about being a Christian. The only time I can remember is when Kate went in for her tummy tuck and he said a prayer with her. My husband who is NOT religious and questions alot of it still said a prayer with me when I went into surgery a few years ago.

karen0101 said...

"While she is off Jon doesnt want to do it all himself-who would? Its tough to be a single parent! Not to mention his image of himself has in the public's eyes been reduced to that of a weak, spineless castrated male. Its no surprise Jon is in bars with younger women. A male's ego has to be stroked-thats how men are. Do you ever really see Kate do that? I bet among men in social situations, men pity him. I am sure he picks up on that. He tried to express his frustration and she didnt listen."

NICOLEM, I agreed with everything you said except the above. I think it's an old fashioned idea that a man's ego needs to be stroked. It's weakness and insecurity that cause people to need their egos stroked, so to speak. There are plenty of women with the same afflication. The best bet is to not marry an emotional leech like that to begin with. Sometimes when couples marry young like Jon and Kate did they can be blind to potential cracks in the relationship. In this case, Kate being overbearing and Jon being passive. This can seem like a match made in heaven for the first few years, but then slowly turns into a nightmare when the needs and wants of each spouse don't quite connect anymore. I'm rambling.

Anyway, bottom line is there is never an excuse for cheating on your marriage. NEVER. As far as we know it is Jon who did the cheating, and in a blatant in your face manner with no regard to how this would affect his children at that. It doesn't matter how lousy of a wife Kate has been. Jon is still wrong and Kate is still the victim and in divorce court it would be ruled as such. Oops, I'm rambling again! I'll shut up now.

Bella said...

"Honestly who here hasn't had a "girls night out" until the late hours or a "guys night out?" Yes normally the other parent is home unless it's a "co-ed" night out. I am not going to SLAM him for going out with a friend. Yes all the stuff with the woman is VERY questionable but I am not going to beat him up for having a night out. I know many stay at home moms who have a "night out" once a week and guess what sometimes it has gone into the wee hours of the morning (this doesn't happen often but it has). Isn't Jon who is a stay at home dad entitled to a night out sometimes? I am not DEFENDING this whole thing, I just think we need to be less judgemental unless of course we are all perfect. I know I'm not!"

I'm not saying they should be perfect, and yes I've had a girls night out has my boyfriend has. Difference there was he wasn't in a car with him and another gal alone. Plus he wasn't out in the wee morning of the hours either closing down the bar. And (if it's true) I didn't take off the ring my boyfriend gave me in honor of us as a couple and our future together when I did go out.

Just sayin'..if this was a "guys" night out thing, where are the other guys? And why is the only friend a girl and why did he go into and drink at a establishment that is well-known as the local "meat" market catering to younger gals.

I just know for me if my boyfriend would have done that (and that is sans children and a marriage) I would have a serious, serious problem with it and I also would not do that to him.

Both of them are pushing over the line as far as "it's just this or it's just that" to justify these actions.

Elsie said...

Here's an interview with Jon's response to the news...huh? Up to 200 cars parked outside of their house on a country road on any given day are common? That swelled head has given him some perception problems, indeed.

How do we know he stepped out?? He is like a 16 year old wanting to show off his cool new car. He could of been doing JUST that! I am not trying to defend Jon but how many times have we seen on these magazine that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are breaking up over the past 3 years? Yes there is a photo of Jon with a woman (who maybe was being followed by another friend to drive her home after she dropped of Jon) Maybe he was drunk and so someone sober offered to drive him home. Yes what I just said is speculation but so is the fact he cheated. He supposidly called her Babe, I wasn't there so I don't know. I also don't live there so I don't know if it's a meat market. One person's idea of a meat market is different from anothers.

Let's focus on the KIDS!!!!

karmashebeabitch said...

It seems I must define "stepping out." It's an old southern euphemism for having an affair. Jon is "stepping out" with women other than his wife and it's unfortunately rather common knowledge in his neighborhood.

NCMom23kids said...

http://hollywoodinsider.ew.com/2009/04/jon-gosselin-on.html

Another article about Jon's indiscretions. "Poor judgment" was part of his excuse! Give me a break! He is 32-years old and admits that he is in the public eye. Whether or not this was all 'innocent', he should realize by now whatever he does will be scrutinized!

I also can't believe that Kate has the audacity to say,(re: their 'success') "It has not changed me, it's changed people's perception of me".

They need to take a good look at themselves and stop all of this nonsense now. I wish someone from their church or family would have an intervention with them because obviously their notoriety has blinded them completely.

Bella said...

Maybe it's just because I cannot stand that witch of a woman anymore and wouldn't put anything past her, but I tend to agree that she stepped out first. Her detachment and new appearance started last summer and in interviews from them jon is still somewhat engaged while kate looks bored to tears. I think it was the soup/surprise episode kate is starting the notorious cling to the side of the couch like jon is contagious while he is leaning more towards her.

Plus with everything we know about good-ole jon-boy I would definitely see him doing this (going out to public bars with girls) to get back at her. Problem here is that he's a FATHER, would be one thing if they were a married coulple with no kids, but they're not and they've built an empire on their kids. They are the ones who will suffer.

I've been cheated on and know the horrible feeling. Especially when the shock wears off which for some takes a while. Maybe the shock finally wore off for jon and that mixed in with the show going on when he's done, he's saying to hell with it and doing what he wants, and punishing kate (and his kids) in the process. How many times just first two seasons alone did we hear jon say "oh I'm so glad kate is here all day with the kids, I couldn't deal with it". Well he's been Mr. Mom for a while now, throw in the suspicion his shrew of a wife is getting attention from another man, BAM, we have today.

lindahoyt said...

I put this in another post. Probably should be put here. Hope you don't mind posting it twice:

Jon, going out in the middle of the night, getting drunk, and scoring with some young woman doesn't make you a real man. It makes you a real creep.

A real man would cancel the show, get the cameras and "helpers" out of the house, and not allow his children to be used for financial gain ever again. Get a court order if you have to. Stop drinking. Stop clubbing. Get a job. Work hard. Get on your knees and pray for forgiveness, deliverance and guidence. Go to your family and friends and ask their forgiveness...even without your wife, just do the right thing. It is what a real MAN would do. Tell them you were wrong, and that you want them in your life again. A man would be surrounded by family. Take the kids to visit their grandparents, and all the people they knew and loved, but who have been cut out of their lives.

A real man does what is right for his family. He protects his family. He is strong for his family.

Go to counseling with the wife--or without her. You have been through a lot, and need some help to deal.

This is where that committment thing comes into play. You promised God, your friends, your family, yourself and your wife, that you would work out your problems. Listen, you promised to LOVE your wife until you died! Why do you think it is in the vows, if it just happens? It doesn't. You have to MAKE yourself do it! A real man does.

A real man puts the needs of his family before his own desires. Be a real man. You have no idea how good it will make you feel. step up. You are a strong guy. You can do anything, and you can change your life for the better, or really, really ruin it and 8 little lives, who never asked to be brought into this world. YOU brought them into this world, made money off them, you owe them! It isn't fair to torture them and hurt them.

You are not living a purpose driven life. Call some godly men and get some support. Do it for the kids.

The kids don't deserve the parents you and Kate have become. Fix it. You have that power.

Tony said...

How can TLC continue with Season 5 with this sham of a marriage going on?

Also--JON--your behavior was probably inevitable due to how Kate has treated you BUT--in consideration for those 8 innocent children, YOU are selfish and a coward for not facing Kate and/or getting some kind of intervention before it came to this. The kids and your family will have to deal with this fiasco for a long time. And Kate is guilty of so many things I can't even list them all.

I will respectfully disagree with those who say the Gosselins don't spout off that they are "Christians." They sing that song every chance they can. Jon hasn't done so recently because he was BANNED from the book tour and other appearances. But they BOTH have spouted plenty of times of their "Christian" morals and values.

So give me a break please and don't insult my ignorance.

Rita Arlington said...

200 cars??? Seriously?? They are liars. There is no way they have ever had 200 cars parked on the side of the road at any given time. That road is too narrow. I live in the area and NO I don't drive by their house. No reason to. Can't stand them.

I am not saying they don't have gawkers driving by and taking pictures but 200 is a little far fetched.

Just like Kate saying she doesn't understand why they have so many fans and can't go anywhere in public without being MOBBED.

I call BS. They draw attention to themselves that is why people gawk at them.

*******************************
No, I believe everyone has always known that you and Jon were the people you were and were living off the backs of your children. Shame on you Kate. Just because the REAL light is shining on you now, doesn't mean our perception has changed.

They need to heed Linda Hoyt's message and beg for forgiveness, first from God and then their children, family and friends.

It isn't too late Katie Irene not until you take your "last breath." Something she said at one of her recent appearances about how long the show would last. "So long as I am breathing."

Barbara B. said...

This story is going to be all over the news. The gig is up for these two. I cannot see how TLC can consider airing Season 5 after the firestorm the media is going to make of all of this. The big issue will be if either one of them are at the event in Pennsylvania this weekend. It will be very telling if both show up (as advertised) or Kate shows up alone... If it was me I would find it impossible to make an appearance after all this media coverage. Hopefully they will take the high road, do a selfless act and stop further appearances, tell TLC to not air Season 5 and go home to Pennsylvania and spend time with your 8 children. But now their home isn't even safe... 200 cars go by everyday. 400 ft would not be a comfort for me knowing some whacko may be in one of those 200 cars and has access to my "semi-private" house. They also need to beef up security in a big way now that this has hit the airwaves. Jon and Kate, please be a Mom and Dad and go home to your kids and stay off t.v.

Ann said...

I think there is no way for them to explain their way out of this.

Kate explains about being away, that they always want one parent present (no nanny) and she likes giving talks/signings more then Jon so he is at home...
Well lets say Jon was not cheating, why was he not at home? Lets say he just wanted to hang out with friends at 11pm. The kids are in bed, now that they have the huge house, can't he have a few friends over for a beer and watch a movie, get a pool table in the basement?

If this happened 10 days ago, why wasn't Kate on the first flight home and stay at home if she really loves Jon (like they both said in interviews, that no matter how the edit looks they are in love). Also why would she not rush home to make sure the kids were okay , espcially the twins?

I don't feel bad for either of them. Kate has changed, and Jon hasn't (grown up, showing off the sports car in the parking lot of a bar, that is so 17ish). I can't imagine the poor kids, with so many rules, and hired helped raising them. The tups probably don't know any other life, but the twins do(via pre tv days and via knowing it is not normal from going to school).

LJ said...

"The paparazzi thing and public eye, I don't like it at all," he told EW during an exclusive interview.

Cut the guy some slack! He is trying to live an AVERAGE LIFE! It's not like he drives a flashy sports car or invites a camera crew into his house or anything.. oh wait..

I saw a part of the Go Green episode and thought he was was punched in the face because he had so much bronzer on.

END IT NOW said...

Unfortunately, I have a feeling this won't change a thing. They will be back. Jon will be even more pathetic and Kate even more of a shrew. Nothing will change. Except the kids will sink deeper into the pit of misery.

Kate will "write" another book about how to save your marriage and begin her upteenth thousand book tour while leaving her precious family back home. Jon will still be miserable Jon. And the kids, well, again, they will be left behind.

TLC should end this show. IMMEDIATELY.

Nancy said...

Regardless of how dreadful Kate is, it makes me sad to read how many people act like she caused Jon to behave like an immature, value-less ass. If he would like to be with someone else, then he should end his marriage and do so. He is equally responsible for the choices they have made regarding their family and if he doesn't like her disrespectful behavior he should deal with it head on or leave.
Excusing cheating makes me sick. And there has been no evidence to date that Kate has cheated (regardless of the rampant speculation on this board). Divorce is no fun and it is really hard on kids. I sincerely hope that this is a wake up call and they fix their family.

You're correct, ITA. I went to a secular venue and he was playing the "God provided" a few times. However, just my observation, he seemed REALLY uncomfortable when he did bring up God. I found that weird, and i was a total sheeple at the time.

I have never heard Jon even in the early days spew off about being a Christian. Kate YES...Jon NO. I am referring only to the show! Like I said I have never seen or heard their "speeches" at a church or anywhere else for that matter. I can only base my perception on what I have seen not what I have "heard"

Okasibel said...

Maybe Jon went out that late at night because he was with his kids during the day like he is supposed to be... I would much rather have the not-nanny there when the kids are sleeping than when they are awake and should be with at least one of their parents...On a side note, I believe we are all falling in their trap, we cant stop talking about them and that is what they and TLC want... maybe we should just become indifferent to their lives and they will go away...just a thought

lindahoyt said...

I have been married for 30 years. My husband and I have also had opposite sex friends.

It is NOT a good idea. Not if you are committed to staying married, that is. Honestly, it is the ay affairs start. Most affairs are not started in a bar, they are started at work; where you go out to coffee, out to lunch, share your problems...and soon you are sharing your thoughts, heart and feelings with a person, not your spouse, and there is nothing left for the spouse.

Also, this person hasn't shown you their nightmare side...and we all have them. They are on their best behavior, and so are you! No farting, no burping, no ignoring, no being rude...it is all lovely. But, it is not reality...

My husband and I have each "fallen out of love" with each other; and had crushes on other people. Luckily, these have not happened at the same time! The strong one recognises what the spouse is doing, and the offender ends the relationship. Yes, being married does mean that your marriage comes before your desires. That is committment. That is why you got married! You promised to put your spouse first. So, friendships must be ended if they come between you and your spouse.

It hurts sometimes, but the reward in the end can not be described! Truely.

Hey, if Kathy Lee and Frank can mend their marriage....anyone can. If I can mend my marriage...anyone can. I pray that Jon and Kate will mend theirs. I really do. Here is their chance to really grow up, and learn some things....if they will.

DeeB said...

Actually in an early episode when Jon was giving us the names of the girls, he stated that their middle names were "fruits of the spirit" or "gifts of the spirit". Also, on more than one occasion Jon has worn a teeshirt with a clear scripture reference on it. Some chapter and verse in Isaiah. Kate tells why they wore that on her website and tells how it has got her and "Jon" through hard times or some such. Also, several people who went to their early church gigs stated that Jon spoke about his Christianity.

Let Us Pray said...

I don't care how much wealth you have or fame you think you have, it will never buy you happiness. If Kate and Jon, just once, stopped and thought about that, perhaps their family would not be in ruins at this precise moment. Instead they dove in head first when there as no water in the pool and decided "come what may."

When you act as deplorable as these two people have, it is bound to come back and bite you in the butt.

Let us pray for the children.

Tami said...

Soooo...what do their PR people, the people at TLC and her book agents, etc, think of the way they are conducting themselves? Not just Jon, but Kate's behavior sucks as well. I sure would not rep her if she acted this way, or either of them for that matter. Why are their sponsors not falling away?? Michael Phelps gets his picture taken at a party and is in big trouble but these two creeps can do whatever they want, pull off any charade on the public they want--I'm poor. We are a great couple. We are super-parents.--and they get away with it. Barf.

Elizabeth said...

This is exactly what Kate gets for all the times she slapped, nagged, yelled, whined, embarassed, belittled, and cut Jon off mid sentence/opinion over the years. It's called karma baby!

Cheri Mercer said...

TwinMommy, I also attended an appearance of Jon & Kate's last year when they attended our church where JON was spouting off his Christian beliefs. Also, how God provided them this and that. Although he wasn't as animated as Kate was, he sure was "spouting" it.

TLC tries to show this family as AMERICA'S FAVORITE FAMILY. Dysfunctional? Is this what society deems as our moral compass point.

Maybe for some, but not me or my family.

I don't just blame TLC, I blame the sponsors, the churches (including mine) and anyone else involved in the exploitation of innoncent children.

Hey ... what about innocent until proven guilty?

Also, Kate is a great gal. Jon's immature, but hey, he's a man. The children look healthy & happy.

How about cutting them some slack?

What the .......Her book "8 Little Faces" is #5 on the NYTimes best sellers list!!!!!!!!!!! You have got to be be kidding me!!!! I'm more upset about this than the implosion of their family.

What is the world coming to?

Cut them some slack? This blog did cut Jon plenty of slack when the drunken rumors started. Nothing was posted for ages. The ship on cutting Jon and Kate slack has sailed.

People need to lose their blinders and rose colored glasses. Reality time is here.

What's Up With That ? said...

Jon is quoted in the article : "I went to Legends to speak to the owner."

From 11:30pm until 2:00 am?

Shame on you, Jon Gosselin, why weren't you home with YOUR CHILDREN ?? !!!

Let's see....Kate flirts with Steve on the Going Green episode....Jon is out at the bars...
Nice family life you got there, Gosselins.

Just a sidenote. I don't wear my wedding ring, at home. Ever. I'm usually up to my armpits in dirty diapers, dishes, and laundry that it's just better for me to not wear it. (I actually don't wear any jewelry at home).

However. And I know it will sound old fashioned but it's just the way I am about it. When I go out, even just to the grocery store, I do wear it, and my engagement ring. And my anniversary ring. Even if I'm in sweats, with no makeup, and a baseball cap, I wear them. To me, it's a statement that says "I'm taken". Not that lol, I think ooodles of men are just stalking the baby food aisle in search of Mrs. Me haha. Just, you know, I dunno. Like, I want to make it known anyway, no chance, this one's taken.

I can understand not wearing your ring all the time (re: recent JLO press). But c'mon. You are out at a club and you choose not to wear it? You chose to get dressed up, gel your hair, wear cologne. Forgetting something? To me it'd be like forgetting the car keys.

Does anyone know or has anyone paid any attention to wether or not QFI wears her ring?

---------------------

Dear Jon,

The bartender is not 'the owner' (well not typically). You may feel the need to do a few jello shots or lick Tequila salt off of some broad's arm, and cry the blues to the 'owner' about how no one 'get's you, and you are just so darn tootin' famous it sucks, but it doesn't make it right.

PS- a therapist would have been much cheaper a person to "speak" to. This converstaion with the owner is going to cost you!

Anonymomma said...

Just wondering too, what happens to a house set in trust during a divorce? Anyone know how they'd even go about it?

Blessed Mama of 5 said...

If I understand it correctly, Jon said that he was just letting his "friend" drive his new car to where her car was parked? Well, if that is true, then who drove him the rest of the way home? It sound like he was in no condition to drive.

I would be completely devastated if my husband did this...my children would be devastated, as well. My heart just breaks for their 8 kids.

3ts said...

lindahoyt--I have thought about Kathy Lee Gifford often when thinking about Kate, but then again--I think Kate tries to be and wants the Kelly Ripa life. BTW, good blog finds lately.

Have we figured out if Jon Gosselin drinks and drives yet? It sounds like he does. No one gets a pass on that.

Just Be Nice Kate said...

Hmmm...Here's another article.

The girl in the car is Jon's type. Young, dishwater-blonde, slightly pudgy. Whether she's a real friend or a working-girl, she's someone Jon would be attracted to in a bar or asked for via an escort service.

If Jon is cheating, he needs to use condoms and also to get a vasectomy pronto (if that hasn't already be done). STDs are rampant; without a condom, he'll be Typhoid Jon -- and forget about Kate ever EVER allowing him to touch her again.

The birth control is important for the Gosselins' emotional and financial security. Ya gotta know that somewhere out there, somebody is conspiring to get pregnant by Jon. If that happened, it would confirm to the world that Jon is a stud and was not the infertile half of the couple (not that I believe Kate was infertile either).

But then! Oy. The public mess of child support. Jon's mistake(s) will cost his 8 dearly, and the twins and tups have worked hard for all they have. All the Gosselins' financial info will be laid bare for us to see. Then the IRS will get involved because there's been way too much "cash only" crap going on down there.

If there's a divorce, same thing. Public disclosure of finances. Dirty stuff.

Whether Kate is cheating too, or even has a lover, so far she's been circumspect. Jon is so in your face I'd like to punch his face.

And the kids! Where do they fit into this mess? Jon is a pig; Kate is a selfish shrew. Poor little guys. Cara and Mady will feel it most though.

Ummms the word said...

I just saw a commercial for the PA Women's Show during the 5:00 news on abc27. They're still promoting both J&K for this Saturday. Should be interesting to see if Jon shows up. I won't attend, I've already emailed the coordintators of this event with my disapproval. The thing that bothers me is this event is sponsored by the company that publishes Central Penn Parent, which is a really good, local publication. I'm shocked that the publishers would have anything to do with this couple, who have made it clear they don't like living in PA, and have milked our state for everly last cent they could get. I'll be out of town for the weekend, but I can't wait to hear what kind of turnout they get, as they're not very well liked in central PA.

#5 on the NYTIMES bestseller's list. It's the NYTIMES best sellers ADVICE list!

Seriously, from what I heard here it's bible quotes with kids pictures slapped on it. Who are the fools that buy this crap? (the kids pictures not the bible verse) WHy have this stupid category anyway?

IMO Season 5 will go on and all will be super normal. There is no way in hell she wants to stop the money train.

Others have already commented, but I'd like to reiterate that something has been very wrong in the marriage for a long time, but it's been highly visible from the first day of the move to the big house.

Kate commanding the kids to never EVER set foot in the parents' bedroom didn't sound or smell right to me. I do think the master bedroom and bath are a private suite for Kate ONLY. She doesn't want the kids to catch wise and slip up in convo with friends or producers.

Meanwhile, Jon refers to his "crib." He definitely has his own apartment on the compound. Some think a garage apt. Maybe. If Kate has her way he's sleeping with the pups. But I do think he's got a nice little spread somewhere within the mansion. That place is humongous.

If the couple is involved in a charade, Jon is not playing his end very well. And yes, as others have noted, he's actually making Kate look sympathetic. There she is (to the average, naive observer), on the road for weeks at a time, struggling to pay the bills and make life good for her brood, thinking they're safe at home with her husband.

Meanwhile, he's out trolling for sex. Openly. He is such a stupid kid! It never occurred to him to be subtle. Now he's bitter cause people are interested in his duplicities because "I'm on tv." Good God.

Just recently in the LHJ article, Kate said something about being grateful for the show because it allowed them to be SAH parents and raise their kids themselves. ha. She said she thought of the show as the "family job." Well, two members of that family need to be fired like yesterday.

If we let ourselves think about it, it's maddening how false and manipulative the Kate and Jon story has been. Even the spiritual aspect of their life was a farce. From the Bible verses taped all over the old kitchen to the church memberships to the lovey-dovey talks at churches around the country. I don't believe they were truly spiritual, I'm sorry to say.

In the end, the Gosselins will go down with Jim and Tammy Faye at the end of their reign as evangelical royalty. Any goodwill that was there in their hearts at first, gave way easily to the temptation of the love of money over everything else.

Chris said...

I think Jon's quick response to the article makes me think season 5 and everything else is still a go. Jon says in response, going out late was poor judgement, and he hates the uncomfortable problems this causes his family.
J&K just want this swept under the rug like last time.
The big question is will it be swept under the rug again or will the mainnstream media really investgate and ask real questions? Only time will tell...will the Oprah/TLC save them again? or will they finally have to face the music?

stunned said...

They could do like Hef and Kimberly--get ajoining mansions, and don't get divorced.

Didn't stop him from doing a reality show! Oops, am I giving you ideas for a sequel, Kon?
