Karee said...

Shame on you, Jon and Kate!! Shame on you for airing you divorce on national television. Shame on you for using your divorce for ratings. You once mentioned that your children loved watching the show and themselves on tv. Well, are they watching now? Disgusting. And, I will say it again.... SHAME ON YOU!!!!!!!

justmeagain said...

If they announce their divorce tonight - the only thing that could happen next IF THE KIDS AND THEIR WELL BEING IS PUT AS THE PRIORITY will be the announcement that tonight's show will be THE END of "jon & kate plus 8".

Anything LESS THAN THAT is CHILD ABUSE.

christineontario said...

Yep, they filed today. It's over, cat's out of the bag. What .. no milking for ratings? KON has lost their touch!

Those playhouses, while fabulous, are $2500 a pop. More expensive if you want them custom made. Must be nice.

Cherier1 said...

They have sunk to a new low.

There are no words to describe the repulsion I feel for what they have done to their children.

Raygun said...

Bad. So bad!

motorcitymama said...

I see there's a marathon going on. . .perhaps they're also announcing that the show is done??

This is just wrong. We don't even watch TLC anymore and I can't even get away from this news.

kelly said...

Time to cancel the show. If TLC is intent on watching someones lives fall apart, how about they scour the divorce filings about a family, other than these two losers and document the hell they are going through, without all the toys, trips, freebies, million dollar homes, exclusive vacations and all the other crap that TLC has force fed everyone.

Gosselins are last years calendar. Now focus on an inner city family going through the same hell without the BMW's, crooked houses and all that.

Wanda H. said...

Aol is reporting the same thing http://www.popeater.com/television/article/jon-and-kate-gosselin-divorcing/537333

You would think they could at least try counseling. Please if there is a God give Jon the kids and move back to ETOWN where Jodi and Kevin can help and be postive and stable in their 8 little lives.

Heather said...

I'm actually kind of sad about this.

I'm not one of those people who advocates staying together for the kids, but it seems to me that it's in the best interest of the family to explore all your options before making a decision that will impact so many lives. It looks like the Gosselins gave up without even trying to salvage their marriage.

just wondering said...

Sorry, TLC.. I'm watching The Closer. No exploitation involved there, just an excellent script and outstanding cast.

Poison Fruit said...

Not. Watching.

The high-pitched whining that sounds like the motor burning out on a blender full of sand is the TLC legal and creative teams trying desperately to figure out a way to spin this to their advantage.

Unfortunately for them, there is no such way. The Jon and Kate "brand" has now become officially toxic. They're done.

And I feel even worse now for those children.

SD said...

Shame on you Jon and Kate for airing your dirty laundry in front of the TV cameras and your children. How said the legacy you have left behind for your children to view when they are older. Sad, sad sad! Your children deserve better then parents who have used them for their personal gain. It appears that those children have never been anything except a way UP for you and they come in second every time. TLC cancel that show, it's disgusting.

Mia said...

'I do everything for my kids' screeched some heartless shrew..is dragging them through a very public divorce what you do for your kids Khate? I still recall 30 yrs later the pain of my parents divorce at age 11 and I cannot fathom what it must be like to subect your kids to that in front of the world..what a shameful, egotistical b*** you are and Jon is not much better..you are liars and you are done fooling anyone anymore..you do not deserve the beautiful kids you have sold and taken for granted..FAME AND FORTUNE COME FIRST..NOT YOUR KIDS!

Philly Hockey Mom said...

Fox Philly 29 said they filed in Berks County this afternoon and People Mag was right by their side. I cannot wait until these two fame whores are out of the spotlight for good.

I found it interesting in Julie's blog that Jon and Kate were NEVER the loving couple they appeared to be early on. They really had me fooled, because that is what drew me to them in the first place! I guess I am a real sap and ripe for some type of rip off deal if I fell for these two.

saratogachris said...

Now we know they are divorcing... what a relief! And it looks like they have been miserable for a long time. Let me ask this question- what kind of idiots go to Hawaii to renew wedding vows, buy a one million dollar house and two german shepards together when they know they are having trouble??????? These are all HUGE commitments and they made choices most people would not make given the circumstances they're in. Remember when they said they wanted to adopt a baby from Korea??? Yikes, that baby sure dodged a bullet! If I had doubts about my marriage, I wouldn't commit to a goldfish together.

Also, as an aside, I am thinking that they might be taking a break from filming since they are going to show America another recap of their life for the past ten years instead of their NC vacation. Any thoughts on that?

The Drew Family said...

Wow, I've never been a fan but this makes me sad. So sad. I really hope they cancel the show. Time is up, long over due.

Gretchen said...

Am I the only one who is upset that they are mixing the playhouse show with "the big announcement"? Talk about tainting memories for those kids. Are the houses bribes to keep them happy right now? Ugh!

ScarySkierNewJersey said...

NurseMagoo said...
Is it mean to hope that she left the country with Mr. Grey.....never to return, thus leaving the kids with Jon?



No it's not mean. Maybe Jon should just throw a bucket of water on her and see if she melts!

Steph said...

TLC? You better burn those Hawaii episodes.

Those poor kids. You know they'll forever blame the show for the breakup of their parents marriage.

I guess I now know why Dr. Phil has been so quiet about this. Cause they weren't even going to try and save their marriage.

KateStinks said...

These two idiots don't see how these will effect all 8 of their kids.

These poor kids will be able to see one day their parents marriage fail and have it played out on TV. They will see thier mother belittle their father, threaten and spank them -- all in the name of making money and ratings.

Shame to Jon and Kate and shame on TLC.

I will not be watching, I cannot stomach Kate nor Jon.

Lisa said...

The only surprise announcement they could make would be that for the sake of the kids they are cancelling the show.
Come to think of it if they did anything for those kids it would be a total surprise.

My opinion? It's because Kate fell in love. I'd bet the ranch on it. Don't know if it's Steve, or someone else, but I can tell that she is head over heels (literally).

Agreeance.

This is the sort of insightful analysis that keeps me coming back to GWoP.

Punkin2448 said...

Is it too much to hope that not only will they be announcing their plans to divorce tonight, but also their plans to go on hiatus with the show and take care of their kids in a loving, mature way?? (OK, maybe the "mature" part is stretching it a bit).

Maybe counseling? At least for Mady and Cara, if not for all of them.

It scares me that Jon may be living in New York. Those kids need him. Sorry to say, I know people think he's just as bad as Kate, but I think he's got more love in his heart for them than Kate does. And that makes him not as bad as Kate.

DH keeps teasing me about watching tonight, but I won't be.

Naj said...

I'm not sad the marriage is ending. I never saw a marriage worth saving. Sadly, they brought 8 kids in the mix...but they'll be far better off with their parents happy and apart than miserable and together.

ScarySkierNewJersey said...

Excellent point. I have to agree with this. I have a friend that walked away from her family and EVERYTHING to be with another man and in less than two years they weren't together and she wanted back in. Husband and kids NEVER forgave her. She lost all sense of reason while infatuated with this other guy. She is now an outsider with her own kids. Like Kate, she was all about her own pleasure and happiness and now although she is with someone else, she isn't really happy.

Connie said...

Truly, I am afraid for the kids. Really afraid.

Shame, shame, shame on TLC and the crew that saw much more than we saw and kept on filming anyway.

Hideous!

Emiku said...

Even if the divorce is true, I still hope that's not what they're "announcing" on the show tonight. That is tacky beyond words! That kind of thing is extremely private and should NOT be on TV. They could just release a statement about it through their PR like most celebrities do, but noooo, they gotta get those ratings!

What's heartbreaking is that you KNOW Kate will end up getting custody, and she has absolutely no shame at all about continuing to pimp those kids out for money. At least Jon wants off the show & out of the "limelight" but Kate will never let them have normal lives. I don't know how the law works in PA but I hope Jon can sue to keep the kids off the show or something, if Kate insists on it continuing.

That's what drew me in, too-- a loving young couple with this huge family. Jon & Kate are my age. I don't have kids, so watching a couple my age that has eight of them was fascinating. I was one of those ones who thought the show was a way to help pay the bills, put some money away for eight college funds, and hey, if they get the occasional free trip out of it, good for them.

Now it looks as though the Gosselins knew what they were doing from the moment they started taking fertility drugs. They say they wanted "one more", but did they hyper-stimulate on purpose, hoping to have higher-order multiples? And did they go through with the pregnancy in order to cash in on the fame?

I doubt that the possibility of their current situation ever occurred to them. They probably thought they were set. If they'd been planning this from the beginning, it's easy to see why they've refused to pull the plug-- Because it's more than just a show to them, it's something they've been working toward since the babies were conceived. But I wonder if they knew five years ago what putting their lives on public display would do to them as a couple and as a family? Had they known, would they have done the show? Would they have had the babies?

I wonder what will happen when the sextuplets are older. Will one of them connect the dots from their birth to the breakup of the family? Will they blame themselves? Kids internalize so much. Years from now, they will still be paying the price for their parents' greed and need for fame.

saratogachris said...

You might be right about Kate being in love, although I never thought she had it in her to have an affair... too much of a control freak. It would explain Jon's anger. He seldom looked angry in the early years but has a permanent pissed off look on his face his all the time now. I DARE HER TO SLAP HIM NOW!!!!!

jonandkatewho? said...

I'm disgusted. I think this of course was part of TLC's plan, because they will probably bring in high ratings tonight even with the "leak" about the divorce.

My question is it seems like the Life and Style report said they filed for a "legal separation" and the other reports say divorce. Legal separation would allow them to continue this bullshit tv show, wouldn't it? I mean I guess these two charlatans might try to continue even if it's divorce they seek, but that's just so skanky I can't believe people would watch.

I would like to slap the both of them. Especially Jon. He knows that Kate needs to be kept as far as possible away from those kids and yet he is setting himself up with the kind of life he wants, not what is best for the 8. You're a bitch, Jon.

I once said Jon and Kate were pimps. TLC are now the scuzzball pimps and Jon and Kate are just the prostitutes. But they aren't only whoring out themselves, as it used to be a FAMILY.

Bah!! I'm sad and angry.

D.J. Albert said...

"The wise woman builds her house, the foolish woman tears it down with her own hands."
Proverbs 14:1

Where are all those evangelical churches who supported this family? Why aren't there more outcries from that community? The 'Christianity Today' article was a start (thanks to the post-er who put up the link a few days ago), but it was rather benign over all. I do hope churches are now awake and any who have scheduled K8 to speak will CANCEL her. What a mockery they've made of their faith, and evangelicals in general. It's not to say that Christians are perfect, but when J&K have gone out of their way to speak up for their faith, and when so many congregations turned out for their speaking engagements, giving them love offerings, why is no one holding them accountable now?

I would encourage each person posting to this blog to also send a comment to TLC, asking them to end the charade. I can only hope that someday, when the children are old enough to see what TLC has done to their lives (with their parents' consent, of course) that they will sue the suits off all the execs for the destruction of their family.

Shame on the Gosselin parents for putting fame and fortune before their kids, shame on Kate for being anything BUT a Christian wife and mother before all of their viewers, and shame on Jon for taking it from her -- and never standing up and assuming his God-given role of leader in his marriage and head of his household. It's hard to believe Kate turned this way after having the tups; too bad Jon didn't see the writing on the wall when they only had Cara and Mady. Although sad enough, but only two children would have been caught in the middle of a divorce -- not EIGHT.

I am thoroughly disgusted with this entire train wreck. God, please be merciful to the surviving children.

TUNDRA said...

I honestly don't think Kate is having an affair with the married bodyguard but if so, that will come out soon enough.

If you look close at the pics from the Leah spanking incident, Kate's eyes look puffy while she's talking on the phone.

Something was going on that day and yes, I do think it's very possible she spanked Leah out of anger. The look on her face while walking over to "discipline" the little girl pretty much tells the story IMO.

Divorce at any age is difficult for children. If the Gosslins don't reach an agreement with TLC to end the show NOW, I won't be surprised if the backlash against them continues.

Most people are just sick of the whole sordid affair and want to know the kid's interests come first, not Joh or Kate's and certainly not TLC's.

Krae said...

Ahahaha and you thought you could beat divorce? You two didn't even try. Counselling? Reading the word? Perhaps taking a break from the show and not being greedy. You have enough money for crying out loud. Why not be happy with the success you had before it tore you apart. No more happy endings. Divorce ruins families. THE END.

Dee Dee said...

It IS the end of Jon & Kate Plus 8. It's now Kate Plus 8, as we all suspected fromt he get go that it would eventually be... And don't hold your breath hoping Jon will get custody. Having all 8 kids full time would get in the way of his single-minded pursuit of his misspent youth.

Oh Come On said...

Well apparently Jon wants to move to Trump Tower. Really condusive to sharing custody of 8 kids. NOT.

You're not alone. I hated the birthday episode all intertwined with "We've swiftly become different people" crap. Not only are their own kids' birthdays on tape mixed in with their personal drama, but all of those kids who showed up at the party and see themselves on t.v. have to watch it, too!

So wrong on so many levels...

nj2az07 said...

I smell Kate Plus 8 in the future. And her turning this into a cash cow as her being a "poor, single mom raising all these kids" boo hoo.
Please stop watching the show guys. Please.

Anonymous said...

That's it! I'm sticking to reading books! What's worse, TLC pushing this story for ratings, or Jon & Kate for carrying on this charade?! All at the expense of 8 beautiful children---just when you think you've seen and heard it all, along comes TLC---The Learning Channel---what, we're learning about exploitation now! Is that the premise of TLC?

ihatethisshow said...

i noticed this last time it aired...during the occ cross-over show, one of the guys and the kids are making a craft at the picnic bench...kate has to SIT ON TOP OF It..(she thinks everything is always about her--just appalling behavior!)..later at the picnic, she sits cross-legged with her dress hiked up to her crotch...me thinks kate has found her sexuality again...she is really strutting her THANG around... and it is a given that she is inconsiderate, rude, unappreciative, on and on...TLC, you can put all the lipstick on that pig you want to ...we ain't buying it. NOT ONE BIT.

Jenn from CA said...

I'm not watching.....

Anonymous said...

Maybe now they will stop trying to sell their Christian identity. One more "christian" family cheating on each other then getting divorce, this time played out on national television.

I wish TLC would stop glorifying large families and maybe stick with families who just want to love their one or two kids.

Oh, and TLC (and Kate), I haven't watched an episode this season and proud of it.

I still think this is a ploy...and Kon will be spending alot of air time doing couple counseling...

Tracy said...

Do what you want TLC, I have not watched an episode all season!!! Why? Stop glorifying large families and start caring about the lives you destroy. I am sorry kids - unfortunately, you can't pick your parents.

Michelle said...

I agree with you all on the show now being Kate+8, I am sure it will be Jon opting out of the show/divorce. However I can not get past the whole TLC had him looking at apartments (providing its true), that are in such a way that they could also film in them? Sounds like the show will continue to me...different format? Any thoughts?

KaitiebugandBrayBray'smommy said...

the only thing that worries me is filing for divorce today was a rumor they made sure got out.

sgr said...

Divorce is not the answer!

MomofFour said...

My opinion? I think if everyone stops and remembers what Kevin and Jodi said it's pretty obvious. Kate said it was over six months ago. Jon told them he thought she was seeing the bodyguard. You don't get counseling or try to save your marriage if you fall for somebody else. Her little "poor me" act and "I don't know what's gotten into Jon" lie is a bunch of garbage. You'd go to counseling if there were nobody else in the picture...especially with all these kids and a TV show in the balance. I think she fell for the bodyguard and had TLC whispering into her ear that she'd get her own show...(she said as much at the Nashville Women's show and it's on video...You Tube it)...so to me it's obvious Kate threw away her kids, her marriage and any character she may have had. Shame on you Kate!!! Not that you would even read this blog...I'm sure your "people" do that for you. You are going to have a very ugly date with karma over this.

WEST MESA WOMEN said...

PEOPLE just reported tht they just filed for DIVORCE. I hate these peeps and hope now nobody cares anymore! Team Jon I hope he takes the kids and the psycho whore gets nothing ugh!

Ian said...

New poll: Which Gosselin should get custody?

Notwatchingtheshow said...

Poor kids. I feel that the boys will suffer the most from the divorce. Then Leah and Alexis. Then Mady and Cara.

Somehow I think Hannah will be just fine.

Emily in PA said...

Not watching tonight. I will check this blog for updates perhaps but please, continue to make a statement to TLC--don't watch either. Lower ratings is a good thing in the end! I want a clean conscience just in case I ever meet the Gosselin children in the future--I did not support your mother in her pursuit of money over marriage & family.

Wendy said...

I am so heartsick for the children.
If they have in fact been playing the part for longer than you all realized ~ they did truly USE their children. What GOOD parent would do this to their family??
Mommy & Daddy want to show you that they are together ~ forever!
What a crock the whole Hawaii deal was...

DO JON & KATE THINK THAT THIS WON'T AFFECT each & every child to the very core of their being...

Counseling ~ I hope has already started... divorce is very damaging
on top of all the lies they have lived through for the sake of a TV show...

I was thinking the other day ~ as I watched Jon & Kate avoid each other ~ they need to be the adults here and SUCK IT UP ~ if you must act & pretend to get along and be civil around each other for the sake of the 8 children you brought into this world ~ THEN DO IT.

If the children should ask...
Do you love Mommy/Daddy...
The answer should simply be...
I'll always love your Mommy/Daddy because they 'gave' me you...

Simply saying that I'll always love the other parent in this family because of the beautiful children we created ~ together.

The kids do not need to feel any more anger/tension/stress because Jon & Kate are idiots.

Way to go Jon & Kate.

Ummm's the word said...

vixen said...

Ok. There is really no point expressing my opinion on what I think of everything that has gone on for the last few months on this show. I remember an early episode a year or two ago that had Kate and Jon talking about how they don't read negative blogs. So, they wouldn't read this anyways. I think this pretty much sums up how I feel....

Hopefully TLC has the pull to get the Gosselins their last freebie--a free divorce!

I don't think that there is a positive thing I could say about either of them or this situation.

Brenna Burnett said...

Did you ever stop to wonder how Kate would handle it if the show DID end, esp. on bad terms for Kate? All accountability would be gone! She could take out her frustration on those poor children w/o anyone around to watch or care. Relatives are gone, Jon is gone, camera crew gone....I fear for those poor children.

I think the improvement we've seen in the children, esp. Mady, is because Kate HAS been gone. They are finally getting some loving attention from nannies and are away from Kate's wrath. I *hate* that a nanny is a better model of love and attention for them but Kate doesn't appear to be changing anytime soon. I am praying she keeps the nanny situation stable rather than find an excuse to fire them because her kids grew too fond of them.

She needs help. Lots of psychological help...

Anonymous said...

Ok so I don't want to watch TLC because I really do not want to boost the ratings but I must admit I'm dying to know if they really did announce a divorce? Can anyone tell us? So sad for the kids and I feel like goof for believing that they were a real family.

ihatethisshow said...

turn out the lights....the party's over....

in 20 minutes, the fat lady is gonna sing! ha.!

kate gosselin is a complete and total FAILURE, FRAUD,.........
sure, blame is on jon for sniffing around ....but you were the one that threw him into the henhouse...

Mommy in PA said...

Jon & Kate Gosselin is currently the top search on Yahoo!

Momof2 said...

I don't do TLC anymore so I'll wait and see what you East Coasters have to say. (even though I say DON'T WATCH I know some will)

sgr said...

Hope they remain "friends" and get along socially for the children's sake. Divorce is better than two parents together in misery. Good Luck to the Gosselin family!

4thekids said...

If the divorce/separation is the actual big announcement for tonight I'll be beside myself. How dare they use the demise of something as sacred as marriage as a ratings ploy? Are they not even thinking about their CHILDREN?!? I cannot even imagine what the twins must be going through, because my guess is the tups aren't going to fully understand the magnitude of this situation.

And HOW DARE THEY accept a free trip to Hawaii by disguising it as a vow renewal, then PROMISE THEIR CHILDREN they would be together forever, only to come back and not spend an ounce of time trying to salvage their relationship? It makes my blood boil just thinking of these two goons' selfishness.

capslock said...

I don't see ANY reason why Jon cannot go back to the Elizabethtown home so there is PLENTY of room and familiarity for the kids if there is joint custody. I thought the house was still available and on the market? Is it still in the Gosselins' name?!

Kate Lies said...

Kate lied to her fans! She wanted to portray a happy family for the fat paycheck! Her career and her book deals were more important!

Kate lied to her kids! After that vow renewal in Hawaii, how can the kids trust J&K?

No more lies, Kate!

Absolutely DISGUSTING that they would time the filing of the papers with the show tonight. Although I've had sympathy for Jon and the kids in the past (which brought me to this website), they are now both behaving like media-you-know-whats. Send them both packing to a desert island and let Madonna and Angelina Jolie adopt the kids.

DisneyMania said...

Run Jon! Be free from the witch!

But remember that you need to protect the kids from further psychological damage from Kate. Take care of the kids. Let them talk. Listen to their fears. Be the best father you can. Good luck.

ismellakonspiracy said...

couple of things:
1) I was at the gym and was telling my workout partner that my hubby and I were going to Hawaii for our 10th wedding anniversary this year, and of course she said, "oh, just like Jon and Kate!" Ugh! They have ruined Hawaii for America!

2) I first started watching this show because I could identify with a hassled mom of young children, and just like so many other women, "if she can do it, so can i!" I felt empowered that there was a woman out there who had bad days and snapped at her husband, just like I did.

But then something changed and her snappish, exhausted behavior gave way to her going to the spa, getting free trips, and seeing a lot of other people raising her children while she sat in a white plastic chair. Then I thought, "wait, she isn't really like me. I don't even have time to interview a nanny, let alone have the money to hire one."

Then all the other items came out, and I started to research all the stories, and soon my view changed. It no longer became our family "go to" show that I could watch and enjoy with my 8 year old. It became like so many other sleazy TV shows, and I pretty much stopped watching.

I don't know why I'm writing this, other than to say that I quit this show a long time ago, but continue to follow on this site. But I can't do that anymore if the announcement tonight is anything but them cancelling the show. Because it just doesn't seem right to broadcast this as "educational" or "entertaining" because it is neither.

Pauper Princess said...

Is it horrible for me to feel REALLY sad about this?

Suzanne said...

Hmm, those poor children trying to decipher which reality they live in. Mommy/daddy in front of the cameras vs. mommy/daddy as seen on TV after the splicing/dicing vs. mommy/daddy at home?. God help them and the two deplorable excuses for human beings known as their "parents". Pull the plug TLC.

ScarySkierNewJersey said...
I have a friend that walked away from her family and EVERYTHING to be with another man and in less than two years they weren't together and she wanted back in. Husband and kids NEVER forgave her.


ScarySkier, you make a good point. The kids may NEVER forgive Kate for this, NEVER. At least the twins for sure. No matter what filth she throws at their father, they will spend the rest of their lives, STARTING TODAY, with friends who have these DVDs and a google search engine. The 8 will ALWAYS KNOW that their mother was the laughing stock of the nation who drove their father away, and sold them all to the highest bidder for nails, trips, jewelry and haircoloring.

Gosselin kids, I am so sorry sweathearts. I DID watch at first. You were each so precious and I just thought your mom was odd and quirky. Your dad did everything for you and never complained. But your mom changed, and fast. And your dad became almost frightened of her. She told him so many times how useless he was, that he began to believe her. He believed he was too worthless to fight her. I hope your memories dont hurt you. I am so sorry darlings.

Snarkeling said...

Nancy~ Its all over the internet and television that KON have indeed filed for divorce

Pauper Princess said...

Jon was pictured wearing his wedding ring when he took Aaden to the hospital. For normal folks, I would think that means that he still cares for her...no?

Momof2 said...

.............wait for it...DO NOT turn that dial to TLC....

GTStroller said...

THIS IS SOOOO SAD FOR THE CHILDREN!

Jon and Kate made such terrible decisions. The family unit crumbles. There are few friends or relatives to help.

Jon was pictured wearing his wedding ring when he took Aaden to the hospital. For normal folks, I would think that means that he still cares for her...no?"

No, it means that they're scamming us. Seriously, who does that?!

When did Jon start wearing earrings? Is this part of the "New Jon?"

ScarySkierNewJersey said...

Jon has an earring in each ear! What look to be diamond studs in each lobe!!!!!

A tractor trailer full of crooked houses. Must be nice!

Karee said...

I smell Kate Plus 8 in the future. And her turning this into a cash cow as her being a "poor, single mom raising all these kids" boo hoo.
Please stop watching the show guys. Please.


Oh Geez! I didn't even think about the "single mom" angle. Of course, she will use that and try to garner as much sympathy as possible. She probably is even encouraging Jon to move to NYC to find his happiness... when in actuality she will scream abandonment.

JJ said...

lovin the play by play. keep it comin

Sarah said...

I find it ironic that when talking about the crooked houses Kate says "sometimes you have to change your plans for what the kids want"

where is that attitude when it comes to stopping filming or keeping a family together!?

ME TOO! said...

Pauper Princess said...
Is it horrible for me to feel REALLY sad about this?
---
NO! I am sad too! Even as I grew to despise both parents I've really hoped they'd eventually wake up and see what they were doing, but it doesn't look like they have, or ever will and it is absolutely a sad situation. The kids are blameless, but as we know - when parents divorce the children OFTEN blame themselves and cary guilt with them for a LONG LONG time - even once they're adults and they know that rationally they didn't have anything to do with their parents divorce they struggle with it.

All of the Crooked Houses in the world and whatever money can buy for the kids will never replace what TLC and their parents greed stole from them. Disgusting.

Anonymous said...

The show is so sad. I used to watch it every week but I have not watch any of the shows this season.
I hope they end this show tonight, a show called Kate Plus 8 as a single parent will be a joke. I was a single parent struggling to make ends meet and give my kids a good life; Kate Plus 8 will be nothing like that.
END THIS SHOW!

Momof2boys said...

Not watching... I cannot stand to think that anyone finds the destruction of a family to be healthy (let alone Christian) entertainment. Sad and truly disgusting!

Holly said...

I'm on Twitter and Jon & Kate is a trending topic...ahead of the crisis in Iran. To become a trending topic,people must post using the words Jon & Kate 1,000 or more times an hour. Almost every tweet I read had someone watching the show or getting ready to watch.

Game.Set.Match. TLC wins.

TotallyLousyChannel said...

I wish the sponsers would pull their ads - then maybe TLC would finally has the sense to pull the plug on these 2. What would Kon do if they did? Who would hire them? Who's going to be paying child support? Who's going to be paying for the kids' therapy? Actually THAT should be coming out of TLC's pockets! Wait, that'll become the basis of the show now! They can alternate between the twin's and tup's therapy sessions and Mommy and Daddy's divorce proceedings!

My head is reeling just thinking of the possibilities!

Michelle said...

I am shocked she isn't trying to have the "crooked houses" cemented into the driveway! ;)

Karee said...

Sorry, I just flipped and watched about two minutes (during commercial of the show I'm watching). Could she be more of a wench? She's bad-mouthing him so badly. Said something like... now anytime I get on to him at all it immediately becomes a big argument. No duh woman... he's fed up with you!!!

Jason NYC said...

Oh God nice earrings Jon

Come on!!! You're a thirty something year old dad of 8!!!!

This is just sad

Oh and stay out of my city Jon

Andrea said...

Please for all that's Holy in the World, tell me that those walking, breathing five year olds are not LIVING ADVERTISEMENTS with Crooked House T-shirts.
Kate is a pimping something that rhymes with smore.

Lolo said...

This nasty hag is sprayed 5 shades of orange and is arrogantly trying to make Jon out to be the unreasonable one, the difficult one..what a hypocrite she is! This is so scripted..Khate says she has become jaded and crass but its all worth it for the kids..she will survive and the kids will survive..LOL..give me a break you bleating shrew!

ScarySkierNewJersey said...

Jon cleared land for the houses, Kate hated it and Kate ended up winning that one. Kate decides to have a picnic with the kids, and Jon was sniping that!

Kate is putting on the "woe is me' and "I am doing it for my kids....anything for the kids......the first thought is for me kids." Jon is saying they are trying to be "joyful for my kids" Oh geez.....now she is trying to say the Kate we see on TV is just Kate in defense mode just trying to survive!!!!!!

I just keep staing at Jon's earrings! WTF?????

I cannot even imagine how those poor kids will feel when the see the video of them in Hawaii and they are asking mommy and daddy if they will be together forever and mommy and daddy promise them they will...9 months later they file for divorce. Give me a break! I HIGHLY doubt they'd be divorced if not for the show.

Kate couldn't have afforded to be a single mom. Period. And they would have had to figure out a way to work through it. This is so so sad. And selfish. My parents divorced when I was 4 for selfish reasons. didn't go to counseling or try to repair it and it effected my brother and I for years and years to come.

tallblonde said...

In the opening of the show - one of the boys - standing in front of the Crooked Houses - says "My girlfriend is coming over......"

Now WHERE did he get THAT from ?????

Kate is repeating the same crap she said last time. She acts like she wasn't a bitch till all this stuff happened, right.

Anonymous said...

Watching this episode, it is so telling that Jon refers to the 8 as "our kids," while Kate refers to them as "my kids."

txteacher said...

So...Kate and Jon just said that one of the factors in where they put the houses was keeping the paparazzi from photographing the kids. Really, J & K? Then why do you make a point of playing in the driveway which is fully visible from the road?

Kate is doing her usual spiel of it all being about the kids. Even picking fights with Jon is all about the kids.

Oh, and the kids aren't working, they just happen to be walking advertisements for Kids Crooked Houses. That happens in my home every day, how about yours?

Newly Rich and Newly Single said...

capslock said...
I don't see ANY reason why Jon cannot go back to the Elizabethtown home so there is PLENTY of room and familiarity for the kids if there is joint custody. I thought the house was still available and on the market? Is it still in the Gosselins' name?!

Its not good enough for him. Hes no better than Kate. Hes just more sympathetic because she was a bitch to him for so long. Youre right, it is an excellent solution to the problem, but the problem with it is that to them that would be "going back" and we know that they cant do that. Kates said it enough.

lindahoyt said...

No need to watch this show.

As a matter of fact, I believe it is morally wrong to watch the show.

This couple are opportunistic scam artists. They used their children and God to line their pockets. For earthly gain they sold their kids and their marriage.

A man is a fool that sells what he can never lose, (everlasting soul) to gain what he can not possibly keep (worldly riches-notority and fortune). They are fools.

God will NOT be mocked. These two are about to see what happens when you choose unwisely.

The Bible says that it is better for a man to have a stone tied around his neck and thrown into the sea; than to cause a child to stumble.

Those two have lied over and over and over again to those poor children.

NOTHING they ever did has been 'for the kids.' They have not even tried to work out their marriage. They have not gone to counseling. They did not seek out the counsel of the church. They did not exhaust anything but the patience of the public; for their children.

White Trash I tell ya...

twins241 said...

what a hag she is!

the wheels on the bus.... said...

Kate is throwing Jon under the bus every time she opens her mouth. It was his fault they took to long putting the houses up (even though she demanded they be moved), she acted like she was scared of him and afraid to tell him she wanted the houses moved, and she has said no less than a dozen times in the first 30 minutes that SHE has the kids best interest at heart.

I think she is setting the scene for a nasty custody battle.

JJ said...

No but I bet Kate knows what Steve has that's crooked. DOH!!

She is completely throwing him under the bus at every opportunity. She's playing HARD for the sympathy card, I'm surprised they aren't playing Gloria Gaynor in the background. It's disgusting. It's also disgusting how they are mixing in the crooked houses with snippets of Jon and Kate discussing the end of their relationship. To top it all off- TLC is running a Jon and Kate DVD 15% off sale at the bottom of the screen. UNEFFINGBELIEVABLE.

This is awkward and hurtful to watch.

OMG - I am watching, but I am about ready to hurl.

She is SO full of it.

The earrings on Jon don't bother me as much. Yeah, it looks dumb, but I won't knock him for it.

I was hoping he'd be the one who would actually fight for the kids..I am losing hope on this.

I also agree that she's crushing bad on someone. It's disgusting.

OK - in Jon's defense, would YOU want to go back to the scene where your marriage started to crumble? I'm sure there are bad memories in that house.

Or, a hint that this is it. The end. Head to your computers, fans....we're closing out on our J&K+8 DVD's before we get stuck with an entire crapload that we won't be able to sell tomorrow.

Hmmm.

txteacher said...

OMG...did those kids just seriously say, "Daddy be quiet, we're doing interviews???"

WTF??? How in the world are they living a normal life?

Jon and Kate should both lose custody in my opinion.

Meggers the wonderful said...

Did anyone else catch the they took extra time because Jon didn't get the land cleared ahead of time? Really Kate? He did, but you chose to put them on display so the kids can be photographed. God forbid you use any of the private land where the "P-people" don't photography you.

She also took the time to slam Cara's choice. Heaven forbid you let your kid decide what perk she gets. Better to let you pick all the perks.

Momof2boys said...

So when do they make "the announcement"? At the end? Thanks for the commentary which is by far more amusing (in a sad way) than watching! And thanks mods for all the hard work!!! Let's just hope that someone(s) look out for the kids best interests as they continue this... doubt the show, in whatever form, will end soon!

Pete said...

"Daddy be quiet! we are doing interviews" yelled the kids

These poor kids are puppets and have been robbed of their childhood..so very sad

Its also VERY telling that Hate says Jon will not talk to her.she tries to discuss things but he wont talk to her..very obvious that she has deceived him and she is clueless to how she has hurt and humiliated him..admit the REAL truth Jon, and out the lying b****!

ScarySkierNewJersey said...

No...the kids are not working.....they are giving "interviews"!!!!! Be quiet daddy we are giving interviews!

They just asked Kate if she is in one house and Jon is in another. She is bitching he doesn't talk to her......."oh geez does he realize what he is doing?" She is really lying it on thick.

Andrea said...

Kate wanted nothing to do with marriage counseling, did you all know that? THAT'S how important her marriage is to her.

The church patrons that listened and paied to hear Jon and Kate expouse their marriage views must feel jipped.

She wouldn't even hear about it.
These Crooked House guys are annoying me by the way...pandering to the Gosselins for a spike in sales.

unreal said...

She has completely thrown him under the bus. She is a contemptible, disgusting monster. Nice memories, you idiot.

Desiree said...

UGH. This is sad.

And also, Jon, seriously, pierced ears? That's so 1992.

TandLMommy28 said...

ScarySkierNewJersey said...
Excellent point. I have to agree with this. I have a friend that walked away from her family and EVERYTHING to be with another man and in less than two years they weren't together and she wanted back in. Husband and kids NEVER forgave her. She lost all sense of reason while infatuated with this other guy. She is now an outsider with her own kids. Like Kate, she was all about her own pleasure and happiness and now although she is with someone else, she isn't really happy.


***

My aunt married a man who went through this. His wife met someone online and he said he didn't like kids so she left and moved to Canada to be with him and completely deserted her children (four of them). My aunt became their mother and they have grown up fairly unscarred.... the call my aunt mom and don't speak to their real mom at all. I hope that happens for the gosselin kids... Kate just walks away and Jon gets them and finds them a good mom. They would still have a chance at a happy life then.

Sarah said...

Duh Dummy Kate said...

Just flipped over for a minute while watching Family Guy. Kate says Jon is angry at her and won't talk to her and she doesn't know why. Really Kate really?!?! You have completely broken him and he has repeatedly said he DOES NOT want to do this show anymore, yet you continue to ignore that. Can you not see why he is mad!

Sheri said...

Notice how Jon always says "OUR kids" and Kate always says "MY kids".

Laurie said...

I have to agree with some of the posters above. I also read that they files for "legal separation" which will allow them to go for "counseling" to try and repair their "marriage". They need to keep the gravy train rolling. So very, very sad that these are the memories that the kids will have and that everything will be recorded for posterity.

txteacher said...

Kate is now placing the blame squarely on Jon:

"I want to talk but he doesn't."
"I don't think HE realizes the repercussions of HIS actions."
"I don't know what he wants. I don't even know if he knows what he wants."

So now you're completely blameless Kate? What happened to "I'm not perfect, I've been too hard on him, we both made mistakes" from just a few weeks ago?

Wow. Just wow. There are no words.

GosselinHeartache said...

Have you ever seen the Gosselin kids wear an outfit the second time?

Pfffft! said...

So, the announcement was confirming the divorce, then they sat their bickering back and forth, blaming each other? Wooo big surprise.....

zgsmom said...

The pity party is annoying me! "He refuses to talk to me..." thats because he knows you will never take blame for anything Kate. You will tell him that he is to blame for all of your bad behavior. You treat him worse than the German shepards!

I am definitely on Team Jon!

tmoney said...

I just can't stand it... Even after all the news reports, the tabloids, the gossip, the self-publicity, Kate still sits on that stupid sofa and bashes Jon. She is trying to make herself a martar. I just can't believe it. He's not angel, but if I have to take sides, I'm on Jon's.

Her statement that this has been going on for a long time... then why renew your vows, why buy a million dollar home, why go to book signings, why travel around country. She is a farce and self-absorbed person. She is not thinking of her kids, her husband, her family, her friends (where is Beth?????). She thinks of no one but herself.

I think I'm done, but there is another 20 minutes left.

someone stop her said...

And the Oscar goes to: Kate Gosselin for her role in throwing her husband under the bus and taking no responsibility for her vicious behavior.

She'll regret this role she played because it was in real life and not for tv.

And there we have it.....it is all Jon's fault they won't work it out. She said that he is refusing to have any conversation with her and he doesn't know what HE wants. She did say he is SO ANGRY with her. Humm, wonder why kate?

She also mentioned that the day the houses were delivered she and Jon had a rough day. Anyone know if this was a day stories broke?

"Well, yeah, remember how we got those around the time Mom and Dad got divorced?" ... (Awkward silence)

"Oh yeah..."

Emiku said...

Kate says she wants the talk about things, but Jon won't ever speak to her.
Yeah, I can imagine how her "talking" things out with him would go... she never lets him get a word in and she never takes responsibility for anything. She always makes excuses and acts like she did nothing wrong.

Those crooked house look cute on the outside, but does anyone else think the inside seems pretty crappy? I mean, for $2000+ I would expect the door to actually close securely! And they're so tiny the kids are like crammed up in them.

Momof2 said...

So....funny how she doesn't mention hitting Leah...or denying Mady water....hmmmmm

...it's all about Jon, bad Jon

DetroitBasketball said...

It really bugs me how they're playing Kate up as the victim, and how she truly believes it. "Jon won't talk to me about anything," etc. The only thing that makes me feel better is if they go to court, and TLC is subpoenaed, they will HAVE to tell the truth about Kate's behavior.

Just out of curiousity, would there even be an option for Jodi and Kevin to take the kids? It sure doesn't seem like Jon wants full custody, and IMO Kate is not a remotely responsible parent. Can you just sue for custody for kids that aren't even yours? (sorry if that's a stupid question lol)

Erika said...

Is anyone else sick of looking at the bottom of Kate's feet? Gross.

momto5 said...

Hi,
I have not watched J&K for almost a year now, but I read the blogs, mostly to see if the kids will ever be saved from this terrible life they have. But I wanted to say thank you to those blogging in real time for us so we know what is going with the show now. Thank you!!

YOU GO, JON!

BlamingKate said...

What makes me mad is all the clips showing up of Kate when she said, "The divorce rate for parents of multiples..." BULLCRAP!! Their relationship and divorce aren't because they're parents of multiples, it's because they chose to have a "reality" tv show and cared more about the money than the kids. Even if they had one kid it would be the same thing. I feel bad for the kids when they get older and see that clip. I just hope they're wise enough to know that even though Kate is blaming the divorce on the fact they have multiples, they understand that it was just about money signs.

The Other Ashley said...

HOLY CLEVAGE, KATE! jeez, is she wearing a pushup bra or have her implants not "dropped" yet?

capslock said...

SO SORRY to admit that I'm actually watching the show. Just an update that the kids are all playing in their Crooked Houses. The typical "in between scenes couch blurbs" are playing at small intervals. Jon and Kate filmed separately talking at different times.

As of 35 minutes in:

Kate is basically blaming EVERYTHING on Jon -- below is an EXACT QUOTE":

"Jon has alot of anger towards me. He won't hold a discussion with me, won't talk to me -- that's the truth. I don't know that he knows what he wants still -- if he realizes the repercussions of what he's doing."

Blah, blah, blah. As expected, and predicted, Kate is playing the victim.

This is an update for all of you that are waiting for an update.

Perhaps b/c my husband is away right now.

OK - in Jon's defense, would YOU want to go back to the scene where your marriage started to crumble? I'm sure there are bad memories in that house.

If I had an ALREADY PAID FOR home down the street from family who could help me and MOST IMPORTANTLY my children get through a very nasty, very public divorce then you bet your ass I WOULD DO IT. Would I enjoy it? Probably not - but I'd do it anyway because it would be the right thing to do for my kids. Jon doesn't care what's right for them...he cares what's right for him. I fail to see how Trump Tower is a better choice.

I can't believe that these two so-called "parents" have the unmitigated gall to carry on this farce known as "J&K+8". I hope every sponsor, book publisher, and anyone else who supports these two clowns drop them like hot potatoes! How dare they ruin their childrens lives by airing their dirty laundry and subjecting these kids to this fantasy world of TV. I hope some real grown-ups are able to step in and help salvage what little bit is left of their childhood.

I am happy to say that I am not watching this debacle unfold tonight, and don't even think I'll read the re-cap. I am so disgusted by these two scam artists! Just GO AWAY Jon and Kate..

Kate says she doesn't want to be alone..LOL...WHO WOULD WANT TO BE WITH YOU??

I really just don't understand how if Jon and Kate are acknowledging the problems they're having with all of the attention, how must their kids feel?!?! Sure the tups may be a bit oblivous now but I can't believe the twins are. And in a few year? I'd be mortified if my family fell apart on television sets all across the US.

I nearly lost it hearing Jon bring up the plight of soldiers in Iraq while talking about the paparazzi presence in their lives (which, they invited themselves IMO. I'm sorry, I cannot suffer either one of these selfish fools. What these parents are doing to their children is criminal.

Jon, don't even bring the military into a discussion about you and your messed up family.

Kate, stop playing the victim. If Jon won't talk, drag him to a therapist. There are ways to communicate with your spouse other than yelling and name calling.

How old are these people?! Grow up!

Hark...a cake! said...

Real Question:

How in God's name can they air any future episodes, now?

kate breeds contempt said...

I would think she would at least wash her feet (or wear shoes) for such a "momentous" episode.

And what's with the little girl voice? She almost sounds like she did in those home movies of their courtship and honeymoon.

Mia said...

I am onto your lies Kate..how you meekly said you dont want to be alone and want help basically with raising these kids..I guess that is your way of introducing Steve into your new single mom storyline?

Duh Dummy Kate said...

WOOOWW! Jon has just admitted that he and Kate have NOTHING together. Their relationship is completely over. Just wow! Kate naturally takes no blame, all pity on her, it's all Jon's fault. She doesn't think the show or their new lifestyle is to blame. She really is a piece of work. How can this woman sit here and not see her faults. She belittles this man constantly on a daily basis for the world to see and thinks it's perfectly OK. At least Jon admitted that he has been too passive and is finally standing up for himself. TEAM JON all the way!

"Jon has alot of anger towards me. He won't hold a discussion with me, won't talk to me -- that's the truth. I don't know that he knows what he wants still -- if he realizes the repercussions of what he's doing."

****

I think by "he doesn't realize what he's doing" she means ONLY that he isn't really thinking about the fact that this could cut off their income, NOT that their marriage is destroyed.

She is such an idiot with the half a day crap! Why not say you hold it together during the day for the kids and show but I cry myself to sleep every night.

SEPARATION ONLY

Emiku said...

Jon: "Kate and I have decided to separate".

csikelly said...

I'd hate to see what people would say about me if I had camera in my house all the time. Just pray for the family.

seashell said...

I never have been a fan of Kate's...as a matter of fact, I cannot stand the woman.

However, I think it's unfair to make Jon blameless in all this. He's sitting in that chair acting like a brooding adolescent.

It's sad to watch a family implode right in front of our eyes. I just hope the kids can salvage some type of normal lives once they escape the confines of their dysfunctional parents.

vomitous said...

She is acting like she's been trying and trying and reaching out to him, and this just HAPPENED to her and she has no idea how she got here. She says she is so tired of smiling on the outside and crying on the inside. My GOD, WHO WRITES THIS SH!T? I love how they are trying to act like they are so confused and bewildered and yet their answer is to DIVORCE instead of even consider attempting to save the marriage. Sorry, nice try, we aren't buying. It's obvious that Kate cheated first, Jon grew a set and here we are. It's also nauseatingly obvious that she is laying the groundwork for Kate plus 8. i just hate her. I'm embarrassed to say that about someone I don't even know. but I hate her.

Crap..tears said...

Huh.

"I allowed myself a half a day to fall apart and sob louder than I ever have."


A half a day to sob versus the ten years of hell Jon had to endure.

I hope Jon bids her a
Good riddance.
and
Don't let the door hit your ass on the way out.


************

In Kate's Defense--if her emotions are genuine..she is still sad, but she took a day to do some serious crying.

And once your tear-tank is empty...no matter how sad you are, if you have no tears left--that's it.

But that's okay--I may cry enough for both of them.

its official. said...

yup there house they bought it...the kids did!! that is why they need to stay there.

zgsmom said...

Did she just say "I don't want to be alone"? Did I miss an episode--she has never been alone!!!
............

...they are just preparing us for Step Father Steve
