new interview with Jon this morning from Radar ... kates been gone 4 days and he doesnt seem to know (or care) where she is or when she will return

Brooke said...

how does radar get all this info? they were the ones who finally got jodi and kevin in a sit-down interview, right?

NurseMagoo said...

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

With Kate away, living her spa/bikini clad life in another country....the kids can now have a relationship with their grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins...without a camera following their every move!!!

Maybe wishes can come true.... :)

Also, thanks moderators for all your hard work!! Take care!

Remember the movie, "War of the Roses"? that is going look like Romper Room stuff compared to what is going to go down with this divorce. At the end of the day, there will not be a cent left, it will all have gone to the lawyers. I am waiting for the announcement any day now that they have each hired one of those high profile lawyers.

3rd Rock From The Sun said...

I can't quite make out what Jon says when they ask him if he's glad that Kate is gone. I can hear him say "no, because..." Can someone tell me what he is saying on radaronline.

ManicNarcissism said...

Can anyone understand what he says after someone asks him "are you glad kate is gone" it sounds like No, because I'm done a "person"... is that it?. He also says he has been alone with the kids for four days. Haven't we seen a nanny and nana Janet?

HappyMommyandWife said...

3rd Rock...here's your answer

"I've been by myself for four days," he said. But when asked if he's happy she's gone, he said: "No, because I'm down a person."

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

he says "No, because I am a man down." (in respect to looking after the kids)

zoey said...

on the Lost webisodes i see kate admits to throwing away Everything the kids make hahaha what a b!!!

What a Sham said...

He also says in this Radar Online interview that "today is like any other day." So, is this confirmation that tonight's big announcement is just a ratings stunt as we all thought?

This situation gets more F-ed up every week.

Tricia said...

I looked to see if this has been posted and I don't see it (though I'm guessing I just don't see it).

Betty said...

Does someone have the URL of Jon signing autographs, please?

organizedblogroll said...

Yea, he lies about being "alone" for 4 days with the kids. gee, Jon, who cleans the mansion??? bs.

Wanna find Kate? Check the spa, or find her boyfriend.

Laura Q. Stone said...

Wait so is the big announcement that Kate is leaving to go into counsuling for her abusive ways? That would be interesting...Or maybe she is being counsuled by Mr. Gray...lol

Canadian Mom said...

I'm sure I am NOT the only shocked person on this site at Jon's recent behaviour on RadarOnline.

I apologize I haven't the link, BUT....

Jon gleefully signing autographs to teenage girls outside his gate, flippantly discussing his 'bad habit' of smoking, and transparent shame of his 'clubbing' with Deanna is simply....SICKENING.

Is this all a big joke to him?

(I am SO frustrated/mad/upset)

NCtwinmommy said...

PEOPLE.COM!!!!!!

Divorce Papers filed today!!!!!

UnOrganicManic said...

Wow that video was sad...I feel sorry for Jon. He does pretty much all of the work and gets none of the credit. Hes with the kids for 4 days by himself- even if he has a nanny full time helping him its still a lot more than Kates ever done. She cant even spend a couple hours with them without complaining of how exhausted she is over and over. ARGH. She is so aggravating.

I hope that they do divorce- I think this is one of those rare times when it is actually more beneficial for the kids than staying together.

I know a lot of people criticize Jon for being immature and a slacker but I dont think that is I think he is just depressed and as for being a bit immature for his age....well if thats the worst of his qualities its still a far cry from what can be said about Kate!

"Breaking News" from People:

Gosselin Divorce Papers Filed

http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20286254,00.html

Niki said...

People just reported that divorce papers were file in Berks County this morning.

Jon beat TLC at their own game. Woot!!

Ladylou said...

I think Jon says he's not happy Kate is gone the four days because I can hear him say "I'm down to one person" which says he's watching the kids pretty much alone?

Kate probably took that gas guzzler of a vehicle over to Maryland to pick up Stevie. If rumors are true, and they are an item, he's in it for the publicity and fame just being with a media whore like she has become. I just read a segment on "the Gosselins on being Christian" it was great. They are out of sorts with Zondervan even... Yesssssss!
Little by little the rock is being chiseled at.

SuzanneDeAZ said...

I like the idea that Radaronline is keeping track of their progress.

bvcmama said...

People.com is reporting "Documents to initiate a legal split were filed at the Bucks (BERKS? SP?)County Courthouse in Reading, Pa., Monday afternoon." Wow.

fisbin said...

It's ironic that every opportunity she can get a sound bite (Churches, interviews, TV-Talkshow-Tour) she repeats the same tired mantra,

"[Everything i do, i do for my kids]"

Then she abandons them for 4 days and counting without word as to her whereabouts, safety or when she'll be back.

I can't wait to see how the Sheeple are going to justify this incident. Maybe THIS will finally open their eyes as to what a screwed up mother/person she really is.

Then again, they'll probably make some dumb excuse to justify her obvious demonstration of selfishness like 'Jon drove her to abandon her kids'.

I'm not a particular fan of Jon but at least he's there taking care of the kids even though he has just as much reason to be embarrassed/angry/tired-of-the-paps/etc... Props to him for taking care of his business even when the going gets tough.

Gosselin Divorce Papers Filed

After months of speculation, the 10-year marraige of Jon & Kate Plus Eight's stars Kate and Jon Gosselin appears to be coming to an end, a source close to the situation tells PEOPLE.

Documents to initiate a legal split were filed at the Bucks County Courthouse in Doylestown, Penn., Monday afternoon.

Fans who have watched the couple's popular TLC show – or read the voluminous coverage of the Gosselin marriage in the press – will hardly be surprised: The duo had long maintained a tense relationship, with Jon recently telling PEOPLE he wanted a less high-profile life, while Kate appeared to remain committed to their TV career.

In February, photos surfaced of Jon in the company of young women during a solo visit to see his mother, who was recuperating from surgery, in Huntingdon, Pa. The couple quickly attempted to quash rumors of problems. But in May, the scandal erupted again when 23-year-old Deanna Hummel was photographed driving Jon's car home from a bar late at night.

When the fifth season of the Gosselins' show premiered May 25, the couple admitted to having problems and not knowing where their relationship was headed. "Parents of multiples have triple the divorce rate," Kate said through tears. "I was thinking we were going to beat that. I don't know if I can say that anymore."

TLC promotions of the show are promising a major announcement about the family in Monday night's episode of Jon & Kate Plus Eight.

DON"T WATCH TONIGHT - THE CAT IS OUT OF THE BAG

NT said...

TMZ just published that Jon and Kate just moments ago filed divorce paper in Bucks count. So now we don't have to wonder about tonite.

met said...

TMZ says papers have been filed! They are divorcing. No need to watch the show for the fake tears.

pammommyof3 said...

The radio just announced that it is offical, the divorce papers have been filed with the Berks County Courthouse this afternoon. Just wanted to give all you guys the heads up, so I am assuming that is what the big announcement is going to be since they are waiting until tonight to announce it.

Mari-Leigh said...

I just saw this on People- Breaking News. Doesn't that imply it might come as something of a surprise? Is anyone here surprised. Like my mom told me when I was growing up, you reap what you sow!
http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20286254,00.html

Brandi said...

TMZ & People are reporting that divorce papers were filed this afternoon. Do you think they will go through with it, or have counseling and reconcile?

I'm betting the latter because they can drag it out over the show and get more ratings.

Susie said...

Why do they need nannies or housekeepers if neither one of them has an actual job?

avidreader said...

I didn't see the Radar interview but read this online and I am assuming it's the same interview where once again, when asked about the "announcement", Jon says to watch the show tonight. He says that twice in the interview.

To me, that shows that he is all about the ratings too.

Elsa said...

They filed for divorce just before the end of business today ...

http://www.tmz.com/2009/06/22/gosselins-file-for-divorce/

Bet they were thinking no one would notice until after the Big Announcement tonight!

sicKONing said...

It looks like they really did file today.

http://www.publicrecordspro.com/divorce-records-results.php

chrismonster8 said...

People is reporting that divorce papers were filed today! Guess we really don't need to watch TLC tonight!!!! TLC has to love that!

dee has had enough... said...

Well, here it is folks:

http://www.etonline.com/news/2009/06/75563/

Looks like this is the big announcement.

OriginalThoughts said...

CNN headline news just said that there were papers filed at the Bucks CO. courthouse this afternoon....

Hope that takes away from those wanting to watch tonight...we dont want their ratings to be high and give TLC and Kate the satisfaction
of thinking we care for anything more than the well being of the kids.

cjmiller53 said...

I just read on PEOPLE mag's web site that the divorce papers were filed today at Buck's couty court House. Speculation over so absolutely no reason to watch tonight.

allgirls4me said...

According to people.com, divorce papers were filed today. Bet TLC is ticked it leaked before the big announcement.

3rd Rock From The Sun said...

So, Jon claims that he doesn't know where Kate is? I find that a bit odd. After all she is the mother of eight children. What about if an emergency of some type happened. I sure do think that Jon is just telling more lies.

PattyWithNoPity said...

Betty said...

Does someone have the URL of Jon signing autographs, please?

Betty~ Just go to radaronline.com

Angie said...

Wow, Kate's been gone for four days and he doesn't know where she is? What kind of parent does that? Just up and disappears? Since they have the no call rule, she probably hasn't checked in on them and probably doesn't care. I wonder if he called her when Aaden got hurt the other day? Surely she would want to know. You would think that would make her come home, but of course this is Kate we are talking about. Kids my ass. She doesn't give a damn about them or anyone else. What a hypocrite!

Canadian Mom said...

http://tlc.discovery.com/videos/jon-kate-plus-8-jons-boots.html

This should be required viewing for sheeples.

TLC, shooting themselves in the foot again.

What shopping Kate?? The shopping around for new implants?????

Yeah, allllll for the kids.

Abusive witch.

Magalot said...

In response to the "big announcement" tonight, People Magazine has pretty much confirmed that Jon and Kate will be divorcing in this article:

http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20286254,00.html

I feel so sorry for those poor children...

KateStinks said...

What a surprise they are getting divorced.

Please don't watch tonight!

RememberMe said...

Those poor children. I'm just so sad for them.

NCtwinmommy said...

FYI to those confused like I was:

People.com amended their article to say they filed in Doylestown, PA, which is in Bucks County... so they did not file in Reading (Berks Co.)

Elle Rose said...

Well, I'm glad at least the the tabloids beat The Lying Channel to the punch. Things must be UNBELIEVABLY acrimonious for them to have not been able to wait until the big show tonight to file the papers. Fasten your seatbelts. Poor, poor, kids.

organizedblogroll said...

Is this Jon's way of saying FU to TLC?

stop the show said...

whoaaaaa

ManicNarcissism said...

Who filed Jon or Kate?

Stop the Exploitation said...

RadarOnline exploits children. I stopped going there.

ManicNarcissism said...

Okay, so if the "big announcement" is to get ratings why not wait until tomorrow to file?? This whole thing is weird.

ManicNarcissism said...

3rd Rock From The Sun said...

So, Jon claims that he doesn't know where Kate is? I find that a bit odd. After all she is the mother of eight children. What about if an emergency of some type happened. I sure do think that Jon is just telling more lies.

<><><><><><><>

My mother in law doesn't know where I am right now, doesn't mean she can't get a hold of me. I'm just a phone call away. Not knowing someone's exact location doesn't mean they are reachable. Just my opinion. I think most divorced/separated parents don't know the whereabouts of the other one but they are reachable.

This Has Gone On Too Long! said...

People.com just reported that Divorce Papers have been filed.

Heres the link to the story:
http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20286254,00.html

NahnCee said...

Don't you think she disappeared BECAUSE she knew the divorce news would be out today and she couldn't face it?

met said...

http://tlc.discovery.com/videos/jon-kate-plus-8-jons-boots.html

OMG! She slapped him right in the face! Yeah, I wonder what the skunk was shopping for...she should of shopped for a new hairdresser and colorist.

Cherier1 said...

Who filed? What reason(s) were given?

Sara said...

Headline News is reporting the divorce right now with a panel of experts

DJ said...

I find it hard to believe that "People" announced this without TLC not knowing. People has always been very pro Kon and I've always felt they were working with TLC all aong.

Maybe TLC was getting the feeling that just saying there was a big "announcement" wasn't enough to make people watch.

I think this was all carefully planned out to try and get more ratings.

I'm on Jon's Side said...

Jon gleefully signing autographs to teenage girls outside his gate, flippantly discussing his 'bad habit' of smoking, and transparent shame of his 'clubbing' with Deanna is simply....SICKENING.

Is this all a big joke to him?

(I am SO frustrated/mad/upset)
-------------------------

I think Jon is being quite decent, actually. He is relieved that his life with the big K is nearly over... at least, the marriage is about over.

When you share children, life is never the same. He will have to interact to some degree, just because they have kids.

If there were no kids, no further interface would ever be necessary.

I think he is positively giddy with relief. I agree with Jon. He deserves some happiness in life.

Karee said...

Don't you hate when people hide cutting and cruel comments behind the guise of "I was joking." She is just awful!!!

Haley said...

So I went to watch that "Jon's Boots" thing on TLC's website that someone posted a link to...look at the right side of the page where there is a little box that says "Shop TLC" - looks like J&K+8 stuff is all on sale! Maybe someone is pulling the plug!

Sue in PA said...

NCtwinmommy said...
FYI to those confused like I was:

People.com amended their article to say they filed in Doylestown, PA, which is in Bucks County... so they did not file in Reading (Berks Co.)

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

So maybe they used the address to their old house thinking no one would find out before the show????

PISSED OFF! said...

They dont even live in Bucks County. Why arent they filing in BERKS? Plus there is no such thing in PA as a legal split. This pisses me off bc I live in Doylestown and we dont want their "P" people here. Main St (where the court house is) is already congested enough without these dumbasses. Dont u have to file for divorce in the county you were married in?

Naj said...

As for Jon not knowing where Kate is, I can believe it.

If something happens, he has her cell number. You don't have to know where someone is to get in contact with them.

SO Over Kon said...

I'm sorry, but something about the timing of this divorce filing is suspect to me; this is a shame, cause these two grifters are so shady that it is hard to take anything that happens with them at face value. I'm just wondering if we are being played again. So many people have been saying that they weren't going to watch the show, so I'm wondering if they filed the papers today, so that we would be intrigued and then watch the show. I mean, if they were going to announce this tonight (i still find this hard to believe), why wouldn't they wait until tomorrow? It just doesn't make sense. Well, maybe Jon's cajones have finally grown back in and he decided to one-up Ms. Kate big time. If this is what happened, good for you Jon!

Don't get me wrong. As much as I dislike J&K, I must admit that I wanted them to at least try to reconcile. I am a child of divorce myself, so my heart goes out to those kids and what they will now have to go through - all in the public eye. I really feel for them.

Anyway, I still won't be watching. I thought about it briefly, but I felt that Kate's fake tears and bad acting would be too much for me to take so close to my bedtime.

This whole fiasco is truly a shame.

Michelle said...

Just a guess here...

Remember when Jon said that he didn't want to be a part of Season 5? They have been dragging him along, albeit not involuntarily at times, by QFI and TLC doing things he doesn't necessarily believe in (but still participating in some of the perks). He knows tonight's the big announcement BUT to blow it and lower the ratings and get this show off the air quicker, he filed ahead of it knowing that it would be leaked. It's public information after all. It could be his way of laughing at them (her) and getting away with it.

He may have grown a pair recently. Divorce does strange things to those who have been controlled by another for too long. The interview in the parking lot was telling too. He really doesn't care where she is. She is probably under a rock somewhere trying to figure out what she is going to do next.

It's a tough life Khate....and it's your life. Wow! Aren't you glad you signed up for this?

BTW..the comment about parents of multiples having 3 times the divorce rate of others doesn't mean you have to get a divorce. You are using that to justify your actions.

Buh bye!

MomofFour said...

I bet there's a lawyer getting yelled at right now....

Sara said...

I guess I knew this was coming but I'm just so angry right now!!! They are so selfish. They have not put their children first like they say. The children will never ever care about all the trips and freebies, they will always want their Mom and Dad to be together like they were promised. This is horrible.

Wendy said...

Now it's so obvious why Kate "disappeared" for the last couple days. She and her PAID pr team went a away to devise a plan. A plan to make Kate look distraught. It's sad that she needs people directing her and telling her how to act affected because her marriage is ending. She had no problems parading around for the past year pretending like her marriage was okay. Now because people are seeing Kate for the monster she is, she needs to re-invent her fake image. Kate is pathetic. She may have more money than she knows what to do with but she is losing everything of real meaning and value in her life. Her pr team is going to have to work overtime to try and make her look good in this situation. Kate should have put the same amount of effort into her marriage. She might still be married. I don't feel bad for her.

bella and aimee said...

ATTENTION SHEEPLE...

We all know you wade through your own muck to keep on top of the haters so I will address you now.

All of you who liked to declare with PRIDE that you speak to your husbands JUST LIKE Kate would talk to Jon...

YOU'VE BEEN PUT ON NOTICE.

Stop belittling and abusing your spouses otherwise you'll end up just like Jon and Kate - not on your own TV show but filing your own divorce papers.

I hate to say, "I told you so" and I hate to say, "we haters were right" but...um...it would seem that the haters have been right all along.

SUCK IT.

tallblonde said...

I was just reading the announcement on dlisted.com...

"A few months ago, I barely even know who these Jon & Kate people were. When I started to read about Jon's rogue dick in the tabloids, I decided to slip into the back row with the rest of you to watch their marriage train slowly head for the side of a mountain. And now the train has crashed into the side of the mountain and burst into flames! People says that Jon & Kate filed for divorce this afternoon in Reading, Pa. They have been married for 10 years and have a million children together (rough estimate).

Are they "hangin' crepe" over at BM's site? You know, People Magazine was the last magazine she regarded as "credible"....*LOL*

Gretchen said...

I don't think TLC will be ticked. I think this is all more publicity stunt junk. If J and K really wanted to wait, they would have. Don't you think they have TLCer's telling them what to do all day, everyday? Now, everyone is abuzz, it is on CNN, for heaven's sake. It is free advertising galore! Just a few hours before the show....in enough time to get those people on other channels to tune it.
My guess...highest ratings ever! People love a train wreck!

Lynn W. said...

Tricia, thank you for posting the link to the article. Powerful message to us all, and particularly to those to whom it was directed.

Gretchen said...

I was seperated from my husband for a while. When in the midst of all of that, you say and do things that come back to bite you later. Jon's cavalier attitude is the same that millions of other people who have gone through divorce have had. His just happens to be on the internet. Their obvious discomfort with each other right now is about the only "normal" reaction I have seen from either of them in a long time.
I still think, despite both of them being majorly messed up, that on some level they do care that their marriage has fallen apart. Who wouldn't????? I think their priorities have been warped....money and fame have been known to do that to a person or two! :(

Anonymous said...

The show hasn't aired yet, but if the rumors of divorce are true, I feel so sorry for this entire family; Particularly the children!
And yes, even Kate and Jon. I am certain that when they got married 10 years ago, they never knew their lives would become what they have become.
my thoughts are prayers are with all of them.

Lynn W. said...

What caught my eye was the report that "both" have filed papers. One of the reports said that they have filed for legal separation which can be done jointly. Now they can have their cake (dating and hanging out in bars) and and eat it too (retain their fortune without having to split it).

Annie said...

My speculation is the timing is all planned. They had an agreement with TLC to file papers today to create buzz so people will watch tonight.

momoftwoboys said...

Bella and Aimee ...

Well said.

KateStinks said...

Life and Style magazine is reporting that Jon will be living and WORKING in NYC during the week and back in PA during the weekend.

From LifeandStylemag.com:
Brian Sep, a friend of reality-TV-star Jon Gosselin's for more than 15 years, confirms to Life & Style that Jon and his wife, Kate, have already begun living separate lives.

"Jon is planning on living and working in New York during the week and staying home with the kids on Friday, Saturday and Sunday while Kate is away," says Sep. "Jon hasn't said anything about getting divorced."

Even though Jon and Kate will be living apart, both parents want to be there for their eight children.

"Jon really seems like he's back to his old self," says Sep, who plans to visit his pal in New York City. "Whatever decision has been made, Jon seems to be at peace with it and in a good place. He doesn't know where Kate is when he's gone [but] I think that's okay with him."

Jon and Kate are expected to make a major announcement on tonight's installment of Jon and Kate Plus.

It's Official!!!

From PEOPLE Magazine!

katenyc said...

So Jon gets to move to his NYC bachelor pad, and I assume, see the kids every other weekend? This seems to be how many custody arrangements work out. Daddy's got a new bachelor pad and is ready to party!

I cannot stand these two and hope that once they divorce, their show will be cancelled and they will go away for good. The thought of Jon polluting in my city makes me absolutely sick to my stomach. Native New Yorkers aren't kind to famewhores, luckily. He'd be better off in LA.

I feel so sorry for the kids. They will probably be left alone with nannies all week while Kate "works" and Jon boozes it up in Manhattan. Is that waste of space finally going to get a job? I don't know who would hire him given his current appearance. He looked so normal and fatherly when the show first started... now he is in the midst of a full blown mid life crisis.

cherier1 said...

Poor Kate. I expect she had to go away and grieve.........at a spa with Steve.

What a bunch of f'in losers.

I feel so sorry for their children.

Steve's wife's still there said...

Jon's girlfriend may have been "gone tomorrow," Khate, but Steve's wife is still there and in it for the long haul. Things don't always go your way, girlfriend. . . .

tallblonde said...

I'm keepin' an eye on BM's site....I have a feeling she's going to photoshop her daughter over at the Reading, PA courthouse where the divorce papers were filed.......*LOL*

sickofitall said...

I just saw the "Jon's Boots" video. While Jon has his faults, she is just an awful human being. It's also evidence of physical abuse on her part - how many times has she hit Jon and it's on tape?

paula said...

People are players in Jon and Kate's game.

I know they will divorce, but do not buy that People got the official. Shouldn't there be a scan of documents online for us yet?

Why not file tomorrow after the news? I just am not buying it, this is ANOTHER ratings ploy.

notafanofpeople said...

Hmm, People magazine used that dorky picture of Kate in the white sunglasses and not.so.bad.pic of Jon to announce the split up. Wonder if the love fest between Kate Coyne (of People) and Kate is over? Coyne sure kissed Kate Gosselin's butt enough in the media and on the morning news programs.

I still think Kate and Steve got caught by the kids and the photos of Leah imitating Mommy p.o.'d fans. That probably played in the decision for Steve to be away or gone...wonder if Kate holds grudges against her children..Leah? Maybe the deal with Leah was the final straw. You notice they haven't filmed a lot since they have been back from NC. Wonder if they are still under investigation, they should be.

Coco said...

So if they are indeed getting a divorce, does that mean the show will FINALLY be canceled? I mean, if they're no longer Jon + Kate, then what's the point of the show?

tallblonde said...

More from dlisted.com about Jon & Kate: ;-)

"Now that People has stolen their thunder, do we still have to watch? Ugh. Sigh. Unfortunately, I'm going to watch hoping that Kate's rabid possum head bites Jon crotch just one more time. You know, one for the road.

Life & Style says that the rumors are true and Jon is moving to Manhattan. Jon is going to work in NYC and visit his kids on the weekends.

Basically, this sounds like Kate is getting EVERYTHING (i.e. the child army and house) since Jon is moving out of the state. Hey, at Jon gets his nuts back! Well, he gets them back on the weekdays anyway."

Socomeover'hear'... said...

Steve's wife's still there said...

Jon's girlfriend may have been "gone tomorrow," Khate, but Steve's wife is still there and in it for the long haul. Things don't always go your way, girlfriend. . . .


Oh honey, do tell. Bend our ears. We have all night. Nothing to watch. ;~)

Ms.Peach said...

Baby Mama is not monitoring her site right now and she is being blasted. Too funny!

Shelly'sFedUp said...

Kinda funny if you ask me. Kate can't even go to pick up her free loot or pump gas without photogs yet she manages to disappear for four days and nobody knows where she is?

Jon dude I hope you changed all the locks while the witch is gone

What a Sham said...

Coco said...

So if they are indeed getting a divorce, does that mean the show will FINALLY be canceled? I mean, if they're no longer Jon + Kate, then what's the point of the show?

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

Both J+K and TLC can drag this sh!t out on TV, keeping the show alive for as long as ratings are high.

I have a feeling the last min. filing today was just another publicity stunt to get people to watch tonight.

I feel so sorry for these kids, more so than ever.

Ms.Peach said...

The next saga will be how will Kate gets rid of Gina Neild.

What a Sham said...

I also find it interesting that Us Weekly has not put the divorce story on their website yet, while People has jumped right on it.

Perhaps more proof that the filing is a ratings ploy?

Kate does 'everything for her kids', except respect and love them enough to go to marriage counseling with their father.

How could anyone publicly put their children through this? These darling 8 children deserve so much better.

Nellyblye said...

Shame on TLC and even Jen and Scott. How dare they leave those kids in that dangerous house when they saw so much more than we saw?

momoffour said...

Jon "working" in NYC? Doing what?

Emily said...

As a child of divorce, I have to say how sad I am for those kids. Divorce sucks, no way around it, and this one will likely be terrible.

Saddest thing is, from what they showed the public (on their show, which is by their own admission very real and honest), they never really tried to save their marriage. So sad.

I'm curious to see what the ratings are. How sad if they skyrocket up again tonight- trashy people watching just to see a family be torn apart.

Kerry said...

I just hope those beautiful children will be ok. I don't think a marriage ending should ever be celebrated. As a divorced mother myself, I wanted no part of any kind of party to mark the end of marriage. (don't get the wrong idea though, I was thrilled it was over) The main goal should be to allow these children to as "normal" a life as possible. There is much damage to be worked through and enough blame to go all the way around, but helping those eight beautiful kids get through this this should be the most important part of the process.

Sal said...

My hope is that Kate and TLC did not know that Jon would go ahead and file papers this week.
Would love to see the look on all their faces right now!

I really hate to hear that Jon may live away from his kids for part of the week. They need him to be there for them all of the time.

I cannot imagine Kate actually staying at home, even for four or five days a week to care for her children. She doesn't "do" work of any kind.

PatK said...

I'm disgusted that the filing of their divorce papers and the "big announcement" show have been carefully orchestrated by them and TLC to coincide.

The public has been used by TLC and the Gosselins to the max. And in the meantime, there are still eight children that more than likely will continue to be exploited for mommy and daddy's "set for life" fund.

Jennifer said...

Jon is probably just saying he doesn't know where Kate is because he doesn't want to explain to the paparazzi where she is. I'm sure he knows where she is.

Actually, I feel kind of sad that divorce papers were actually filed. It's sad to see a family break up like this.

I hope the kids get some extra hugs.

Shirmeen said...

Oh and the timings are so perfect as well
First episode of season 5 .... "This might be our last family picture together" by QFI
Then the NC's vacation without Jon just to film few more episodes of Kate with kids alone
Anniversary was (not) celebrated together but I guess TLC's crew was there
Fathers day was only with 8 kids

So these losers are not going anywhere. They are right here airing new episodes, sucking blood of their kids and setting examples for sheeples.

JeninTexas2 said...

If someone spilled the beans before TLC had a chance to air their "important" episode, I will be laughing!

I'm glad it leaked before the episode! I'm sad for the kiddos. :-(

Wow! Guess this is Jon's way of saying 'suck it!' to TLC and Kate in order to screw up tonight's episode.

JustSad said...

Just watched a clip of Jon on Inside Edition. They asked where Kate was and he again said he had no idea where she was or when she's coming back. When asked if he was getting a divorce and moving to NY, he nonchalantly said "You just have to watch the show" and he was just enjoying the time he had with his kids. ITA with whoever said that Kate is hiding herself to save face. It's a shame that this marriage has ended because Jon wants to go back to a normal life and Kate wants to continue her TV "career" and be in the spotlight. Just sad.

MayDay said...

Kate makes it sound like the divorce is happening because they had multiples. It is more like they are getting a divorce because of doing a reality show. Most of them end in divorce. But she will never admit to that.
Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica
Meet the Barkers: Travis and Shannon
Hogan Knows Best
My Life on the D List: Kathy Griffin
'Til Death do us Part: Dave Navarro and Carmen Electra
Now add JON AND KATE PLUS 8-
I hope it was so worth it Kate, now you have turned your family into a divorced family.

babeeberry said...

I don't think the "multiple parents have higher divorce rates" is the reason for this divorce. I think she's probably in hiding this week, that's the reason Jon doesn't say where she is. The shizz is gonna hit the fan and the Queen of Mean is off preparing her victim speech.

Jon really took one for the team by getting married to her in the first place... and the scarier thought is she's on the market again..ugh.

" Ms.Peach said...
Baby Mama is not monitoring her site right now and she is being blasted. Too funny!"


Oh no.... Kate is MIA, BM is not patroling her blog.... this can't be good! Hope there's no axes involved.

On a serious note, I am so sad for the kids. I pray they get through this in a peaceful way. I hope all the adults in their lives do right by them.

Cannot wait for Jon's tell all book that you obviously know will come out in the next few years as his pile of money evaporates.

Divorce is NOT the answer!

HateKate said...

I feel sorrow and sadness for those 8 children. I hope they get support from family and friends through this hardtime.

Now that their father is divorcing their mother, through Jon, could they not renew their relationships with grandparents,Jon's mom esp. Beth, aunts and uncles including Jodi and Kevin? These children need family more than ever now.

ihatethisshow said...

somebody call 911!!! babymama is stroking out!~

Hmm said...

What a Sham said...

Both J+K and TLC can drag this sh!t out on TV, keeping the show alive for as long as ratings are high.

I have a feeling the last min. filing today was just another publicity stunt to get people to watch tonight.

I feel so sorry for these kids, more so than ever.

====================

My thoughts exactly. Why not wait until tomorrow to file? Because the breaking news is a last-minute ploy to suck all the viewers back in.

DON'T FALL FOR IT!

RCP said...

I'm a long-time reader, but this is the first time I've posted. I just wanted to say that when you take a step back and really look at this, you see how incredibly sad it is that not only have these 8 kids been manipulated and exploited for the parents' benefit, but now Jon and Kate's divorce, and overall the family's destruction is serving as not only entertainment, but TLC is using it to boost ratings even further. They know they'll get people to watch because it's turned dramatic.

We've gone from a show giving a look into the lives of parents with a set of twins and sextuplets, struggling with the expenses of feeding 8 children, to a show that is only aired on the rare occasion that multi-millionaress Kate is actually home, and not jet-setting around the country. A show that is basically broadcasting the family falling apart, all as entertainment. It's truly sad.

ashley2424 said...

Did BabyMomma commit sucicde or something? Her site's comments have gone a tad bit GWOP-like! LOL

(Not that I'm wishing she does...)

MorganfromWV said...

OMG I am so sick of these people! I can't stand it anymore! Please go away, please take your children with you and give them a regular freaking life!

Joyhawk said...

So Jon's in NYC all week and Khate's with the kids....where's the show?!?

I know I certainly don't want to watch Khate *interact* with her children - lordy, what would she DO with them???

Taryn said...

One thing that has me curious is that there are no scans online of the divorce documents. With big celeb divorces, many times you can see them on The Smoking Gun or even one of those blogs like DListed.

ihatethisshow said...

this marriage was doomed due to these two idiots...in the beginning, kate was all about kate, and jon was all about he and his family...then, later on, kate was all about kate and what she could profit herself..and then jon starting sniffing around a little bit...these two haven't put their partners first in their lives in a REALLY LONG TIME. she can blame it on the 'multiples excuse', but that isn't what ruined this marriage. pride did. the love of money did. putting yourself first did. if kate's house was literally on fire, she would run for the door first, and hope the kids could find their way too. jon, you say? jon who??
and all these episodes, i have NEVER ONCE heard her say to jon, 'i am sorry' about anything. (the toy store yelling? nope, no apology..the dessert thing she let thaw at the dinner he cooked? all she gave was excuses..)
since these two idiots have ruined their marriage, it is in the best interest of the kids to divorce, so they can have peace in the household. who wants to bet that she runs down jon to the kids every chance she gets... (she has already been doing it for years).. she is a sorry excuse for a human--i hope others watching don't think all Americans are like her.

Stretch said...

I think the timing of this filing was made so that it would leak prior to the airing of the special announcement tonight. I think that the entire thing is being choreographed. Otherwise, why not wait until tomorrow to file after the "special announcement". What a disgusting way to manipulate ratings.

Canadian Mom said...

Okay friends.

We seem to all agree on one thing... CANCEL THE SHOW!

Don't watch. Don't give them the ratings they want.

I live in Canada, so I'm not sure how ratings work here. Regardless, I'm not making any assumptions and thus shall read a book for an hour.

The Mad Hatter said...

On Baby Mama's site (google Gosselin family fansite) a user named Reagan is shredding them to bits under the Crooked House comments section! Reagan seems to be a gwopper and Baby Mama probably is bawling her eyes out.

You know these losers are just getting divorced so that in one year, next season, they can have a REAL remarriage episode after they are done all the marriage counselling and have reconciled.

I agree. Its bullying, plain and simple.

After the deaths of a couple of tormented teens, we have a number of anti-bullying campaigns within our community. We teach kids that these comments are just another form of bullying in several school districts.

I couldn't agree with you more.

Thank goodness the E-Town House hasn't sold. Who gets that house?

dee has had enough... said...

I think that Jon came home last week (I think on Wed) and said "I'm done". Late Wed/early Thurs TLC starts promoting the "big announcement" in an effort to peak interest and increase ratings and b/c Jon said he was filing. I honestly don't think that TLC's plan included Jon filing today and it getting out before the big show. I think Jon screwed them and beat them to the punch. Why would we have to watch now...we know what the big announcement is. I think they would have had more interest had it not come out this afternoon. Now there is no reason to watch the train wreck. Just my thought.

Goldengirl said...

Jon will life in NYC and film a new reality series about being newly divorced, single and living in the big city. Kate will continue on with Kate + 8. Both will be penning tell alls which will net them enough to pay for the divorce.

The kids will continue to live in the McMansion and alternate parents: Kate during the weekday, Jon on the weekends. Notice that Kate took the weekdays when the kids will mostly be in school. So she'll have to have as little contact with them as possible.

While I think Jon deserves to breath a big sigh of relief right now, I do find it interesting that for someone who HATES the spotlight as much as he does, he's certainly been chatty with the paps the last few days.

Jon, if you're reading this, please: Since Kate is GONE please please please invite the extended family over - Jodi, Kevin, grandparents, your brothers, your friends. Please show the world that you will include them in your children's lives. PLEASE. Have a BIG BIG BIG BBQ. You are not perfect, Lord knows, but the majority of people are on your side.

this is just sad. as so many commenters have said this a pathetic that tlc uses this as a way to make ratings.

we have seen a family fall apart. and this is not healthy for ANY ONE. i feel pain for these kids.

now, how do we know that Jon filed?

Goldengirl said...

I wonder if Mady walking in on Kate and Steve (and from what I've read, it was a little more than kissing she caught them doing) was the final straw. I think Jon just said "I'm done." And more power to him.

B in Lee said...

I just can't wait for "Doc'r Schill" to get involved with this. I bet he says something really profound, like, "Kids would rather be FROM a broken home than LIVE in one". Maybe he'll get both of them on stage and make Jon cry! He's such an insufferable, psychobabbling, Oprah-sucking bully.

But he plays to his audience: the anti-male, anti-responsibility, 'do-what-feeeeels-good' crowd.

I am B in Lee. I am NOT "anonymous"

steelmagnolia said...

I have been pretty disgusted with this circus for quite some time now, but watched anyway. I just read online about the divorce, and just can't bring myself to watch tonight's big episode.
Acting so terribly for all the world to see, but parading the breakdown of a family on television is disgraceful not only to J&K, but also to TLC. Can you imagine how the kids will feel when all of their classmates know every disgusting detail come school this fall.

TLC: at least let us get the prep ready and make it a ratings bananza...

k: yeah. you better. and im going to run off and pretend i have feelings...

j: yeah, we'll see...

and my hope: he filed sooner than TLC and khate expected just to get the last word....

Jon looks as ridiculous with those two diamond stud as Kate does with that hair. Talk about a midlife crisis. Younger women, fast cars, condo at Trumpp Tower. Seriously what a moron.

EW.com has a short blurb about the divorce filings. Here is one of the comments filed underneath the article.

Jada Mon, Jun 22, 2009 at 07:45 PM EST
I am a Southwest Airlines Flight Attendant and had Jon, Kate, some of the TLC gang and let me just say that Kate was very rude to me and my two coworkers. She does act like a diva! The I saw the real Kate and her beauty is only skin deep.

+ + + + + +

Could be he has a pit bull for a lawyer. Could be he found out what Mady saw and he and the lawyer now realize he has enough ammo to not only file for divorce, but come out of it ahead.

Seriously, just his act of hanging out with the pap and fans makes him far far more endearing than Kate.

Toss in years of video of Kate's behavior on the show, the possiblity of unaired footage being used in court proceedings, plus the testimony of TLC employees, family, neighbors and friends.

Which could explain why Kate has vanished. If this was all going to make her look good, she be at Starbucks in a bikini.

peppyr said...

Personally I think the divorce is the best thing to happen for those kids.
They will see Jon in a different light. No longer looking like a spineless turd. He doesn't have to buckle under and he can show the kids (esp the boys) that Kate's way isn't the only way and men can have backbones too.

On weekends they will get a break from Kate and her many many issues...

I bet Jon lets them get dirty, eat nonorganic, and not dress alike! I have a feeling the kids will very quickly come to prefer Jon's laid back style over Khate's love taps, uptight rules, and cell phone attachment.

pamommy said...

Loved your post.
There is something incredibly sleazy about how all this was presented. Another desperate ratings grab at the expense of their children. How can the other families that are on TLC condone this sort of pimping of ANY family. I'm done w/ all of the shows. TLC disgusts me.

bedonenow said...

good folks upthread asked:
"How in God's name can they air any future episodes, now?"

Oh they will. The Beach vacation? here it comes... wait for it... "When life is so heartbreaking, sometimes you need to get away with the ones you hold most dear...Oh and your kids too."

"When crooked houses become too painful - what's that you say? They all know the vacation happened BEFORE the crooked houses? Too bad. They will swallow what we feed them! Now where was I - When crooked house become too small you need an 11 day getaway in a $10,000 a week condo on the beach to blah blah blah..."

Yes indeedy doo folks, The vacation filming will be packaged as a spiritual retreat as Kate begins the lonely process of being a single parent with only her faith and her entourage to support her.

Chris said...

I hope it was not Kate explaining the divorce to the kids. I;m sure she would be blameless in the situation.
I'm sure she would blame the P-people and Jon. If she belittles Jon on tv, how much will she cut him down when explaining teh reasons for the divorce to the kids....

Blessed mom of 4 said...

So I was just over on the msnbc website and they had a link there about the divorce. It stated that Kate was the one that filed and her reasons were that Jon had made some choices over the weekend that made her think that the best thing for her to do was start the proceedings in order to protect herself and the children. Interesting...wasn't he home with the kids all weekend? Do you think that it might have something to do with Aaden getting hurt? It would be just like her to take something as minor as a child bumping his head (kids get minor injuries sometimes when playing kate!) and blow it out of proportion so he looks like a bad parent and that the kids need to be protected from him? Any thoughts?

Eight minus Kate said...

Here's the new press release:

"Over the course of this weekend, Jon's activities have left me no choice but to file legal procedures in order to protect myself and our children," Kate said in a statement Monday night. "While there are reasons why it was appropriate and necessary for me to initiate this proceeding, I do not wish to discuss those reasons at this time, in the hope that all issues will be resolved amicably between Jon and myself. As always, my first priority remains our children."

Jon released a statement of his own, claiming his wife was the first to make a legal move. "This afternoon, Kate filed for divorce. Our kids are still my number one priority. I love them and want to make sure they stay happy, healthy and safe. My job is being the best, most supportive and loving father that I can be to my kids, and not being married to Kate doesn’t change that."

I'd bet Jon's "activities" was not putting up with Kate's verbal abuse and hitting or not supporting her in her behavior towards Leah? Jon's behavior this weekend is well-documented and Kate was nowhere to be seen. His attention hogging was lame, but nothing we haven't seen from Kate.

Terry K. said...

Just pondering what might happen after all is said and done. I truly think Jon is excited about getting a divorce. Having been divorced (sans kids), I, too, felt a sense of relief, excitement, and anticipation of a new start. However, we were without kids. Our divorce was amicable and we remained good friends until both of us got remarried and the new spouses didn't like our staying in touch-lol-just a tinge of jealousy there. Anyway, with kids... and with eight kids... well, that's a horse of a different color. That's a whole different ballgame.

So, this is what I think is going to happen (and please believe I truly wish no malice, no ill will on anyone)-- But being a studier of human nature, in general, I find I'm usually right in my predictions.

Jon will be pumped and truly go overboard at the beginning in his newly single life. I mean, he's going to celebrate and live it up big time in his condo in Trump Tower in NYC! Kate's going to get bitter and more bitter--because, of course she will feel resentment because she won't be able to come and go on her book tours and speaking engagements when she wants to-- Since she is going to HAVE to fight for majority custody because she would look like a really bad mother (well, worse than she does already), she will probably have the kids most of the time. (Like Jon is really going to want to drop what he's doing every 3 to 4 days to cruse in from his highflying lifestyle in NYC--ya, right!). Kate is going to hate feeling STUCK with the kids on her watch, and she won't have Jon as a punching bag to relief her pressure. Kate is going to be truly JEALOUS of Jon's sense of freedom. It truly might be a final straw for Kate.

I'm also not picturing this sharing of the house taking care of the kids, because, after all, it is the KIDS house. Is Kate going to buy her own bachelorette pad when Jon is staying at the house? It just seems a little bit goofy. And if it is the case, is that really the right thing for the children? Doesn't that really make the T.V. show THE most important aspect of the family. Doesn't that make the T.V. show work? I'm just wondering...

So folks, I hate to say it, but I think this is going to get much uglier, not better... and as we all have at the forefront of our thoughts is what is going to happen to the children? How will they be affected?

We certainly haven't seen the last of them in the tabloids, that's for sure. People, In Touch, US Weekly, etc., as well as the mother of them all, TLC, are laughing all the way to the bank.

http://tv.yahoo.com/blog/jon-and-kate-the-big-announcement--423

This is just too sad. After 10 years of marriage, they're willing to throw it all away. What they should have done is taken a break from filming (or stopped altogether if their contract allowed it), stepped back, and focused on healing their family. There was love there before.

I just feel so bad for the kids.

andimominil said...

I find it interesting that Kate is the one who filed the papers; whereas she played victim tonight.

My guess is she was upset over those free autographs Jon handed out over the weekend. After all, if he'd charged the norm $20 a pic, she could have gotten another layer of fake bake tan.

Angie said...

"Over the course of this weekend, Jon's activities have left me no choice but to file legal procedures in order to protect myself and our children," Kate said in a statement Monday night."

It's hilarious to me that she's attempted to throw him under the bus with claims that his actions forced her to protect the kids from him when she is the one who has had TWO parenting scandals over the last few days: First denying Maddie water and then the spanking incident. It seems to me that Kate is the one that the children need to be protected from.

Hmmm...you weren't home...you didn't show up at the hospital when JON took your son there to make sure he was okay...If my husband were endangering my children, no matter how much I couldn't stand being in his presence you could be DAMN sure I'd be there to watch over my children.

What? Did Jon have money transferred from your joint account? Did he shut down your joint accounts? Did his lawyers place a freeze on all your assets? Did he draw up paperwork to halt production of the show? Did his private eye snap photos of you and Steve? Did he allow his lawyer to question Mady on what she witnessed?

Kate, there is documented evidence of how you abuse your children and your husband. Five years of video, photographs, eye witness accounts. The most anyone has ever criticized Jon for is being immature, lazy, easily manipulated BY YOU and agreeing to this whole circus fiasco in the first place.

In the court of public opinion, you are the guilty one. You constant attempts to paint Jon as worse than you only highlight how desperate you are to find validation. Kate, I truly pity you.

I wish you well in your new life. I hope you are able to conquer the demons which plague you. Just remember the old adage - be careful what you wish for. You just might get it.

As for you, Jon:

Living well is the best revenge. Keep taking the high road. Remember to put your children first and foremost throughout this who fiasco,

Violette said...

How ironic. The title of this episode is Crooked Houses, right? Nothing new there.

They were paid to go to Hawaii last year and lie to those children's faces about "being together forever". Could anything be more dispicable? How will those kids ever know who to trust or believe about anything, after a childhood like that?

We all saw what you did. Shame on you Jon and Kate.

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

So if Kate has to "protect myself and the children,"
is she thinking she needs to keep Jon from sharing custody?

Doesn't she realize if Jon doesn't share in their care, she will have a lot more responsibility and she won't like that one bit?

She had better HOPE he wants to be with the kids part of the time.

She sure doesn't want to be the only full time parent, now, does she?

No, she really doesn't!

Terry K. said...

LOL! I totally agree with Goldengirl! I think Jon's despicable behavior this weekend was his shopping for a million dollar condo and perhaps scrutiny over their financial records. Kate makes it sound like Jon went out and got a Two dollah hookah and lap dances on top of it. Please. Will the madness ever stop?

Terry K. said...

Absolutely agree! LOL! Exactly what I thought but couldn't quite put into words!

"No, there are plenty of reasons not to watch this show besides the good of the children. It's just become too creepily uncomfortable. (And, as Maureen Ryan notes, too sickeningly commercial.) Jon and Kate may decide to keep the family business going "for the kids," or for whatever other motivation. But I suspect that after this ratings bump, the audience will quickly drop again. Because for the viewer at home, one thing is true about reality-TV divorce: there's no point staying in a relationship that makes you unhappy."

"The first part of the show was blatant product placement for the company who made the children's new custom playhouses. How disturbed were you by the fact that the children were, as James Poniewozik tweeted, "walking billboards"? I found it sigh-inducing but not particularly unexpected."

Great post, Goldengirl. I think using the word "protecting" makes you think of something physical, but obviously Jon's lawyers must have pulled a fast one on Kate regarding $$$$$ while she was with Steve this weekend (does anyone believe she was alone?). I'm betting Jon did indeed hire a private investigator and got the goods on her since she needs to keep her reputation clean for reality TV greatest mom there is. I truly believe the separation was made official and sped up because of what Mady saw in NC between Kate and Steve.

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

Star reported Mady walked into Kate's bedroom and caught Steve and Kate kissing. She was distraught and ran crying to Cara who also started crying. The uproar woke up the whole house. Supposedly it was a quick, gentle kiss described by Star. The rumor is that it was more. Regardless, it is horrible that an 8-year-old child should be exposed to such things. No one knows who told Star and there was no denial by TLC or Kate. My theory is that Mady told Jon and he blew up and that's why the separation was sped up.

I know this is not right - but I have the urge to send a "Dear Rev Craig" letter....

The Today Show did a segment this morning saying Kate filed against Jon because she had to protect the kids.People magazine editor said the show was going on hiatus.The editor wouldn't confirm Kate's reason for filing,but indicated it was because of Jon's very recent
activities.

Sal said...

Kate is a drama queen and a lier. She is going to try and destroy Jon for ruining her scam.
My heart hurts for the kids. I hope Jon will let Jodi and Kevin back into their lives now. Those kids are going to need all the support they can get.

Anno said...

Does anybody else think Kate will publicly use the photos of Jon smoking (a joint?) as her reason for filing?

A video clip from FoxPhilly. They showed Jon this morning with a bodyguard. Surprise - they were the only paparazzi there and were told to leave.

Maybe Kate is upset cause Jon talked to the tabloids on Sunday. That was pretty dumb if you ask me! If you want them to leave you alone then DON'T talk to them. DUH!

yeah shes suffering....spotted out at the Toyota dealership this am...like the floppy hat can hide her.............

Terry K. said...

This is just heartbreaking to hear that Mady walked in on Kate and Steve kissing (can I say ewwwwwww?).

Wow, talk about lifetime imprinting of a terrible memory. It would be a terrible memory, no matter what the circumstances... but just think... this particular memory will no doubt make it into the tabloids and be splashed all over the media for all to see?--it's unthinkable, really.

Will someone end this madness, please? Jon and Kate could've made their millions, and done it with class. I definitely blame it mostly on Kate... Jon, I think, just found himself caught up in a hurricane and backed into a corner. Kate, on the other hand, simply chose what suited Kate with disregard to the other 9 people in her family--and especially disregard for her eight little money makers.

I don't think I can even wrap my arms around this one. I am a full grown adult, and this situation is so far removed from my life, and it's affecting me. I just can't imagine what it's doing to their kids.

Terry K. said...

Steph I agree with you that if you don't want the tabloids to take an interest in you, then don't give them fodder.

At the same time, I think Jon was trying to prove a point. He's not the bad guy in this whole thing. It's three people, Kate, Kate and Kate and her multiple personality disorder!

Julie said...

TLC halted production???? Thank you, tahnk you, thank you...Now perhaps those kids can try to get through this summer in their mansion and deal with all the transitions of mom and dad coming and going without the intrusion of a mic and a cameraman capturing every ounce of sadness.

Let's just pray when Jon has the kids, they get to visit their aunts and uncles, Beth, Nana Janet and their grandparent's. They need as much LOVE (NOT stuff) as humanly possible to give.

Again, thank you TLC for finally waking up!

Too late Kate said...

I read that Kate said she is protecting herself and her kids from Jon's action and filing for divorce. What? Protecting herself from Jon?

Kate is never one to lose an argument. She probably knew her marriage was over and didn't want it to be Jon divorcing her. She wants to pretend to be the victim.

Any court can look at her documented tour schedule and appearance schedule, they will see that Jon has been home taking care of her kids.

Attention Kate Gosselin:

A judge at your divorce hearing will not be like all the people you PAY to hang around with you. A judge will be making a decision that is best for the children. A judge will not be OBLIGATED to side with you. A judge will not be SCARED to upset you. You will not be able to BULLY the justice system.

Finally, someone will have the best interest of the children.

Plus, Jon's family still talks to him. Where's yours? Jon still has non-paid friends? Where's yours? Jon is genuinely a nice person. Um, are you?

We Don't Hate Each Other said...

They don't hate each other.

Remember Khate explaining the absence of her parents? "We don't hate each other . . ."

SAD existence when that is the first thing you have to say about all the loved ones and friends you had in your life.

Haha check out Kate's new hat!!!

Why? Why renew your vows so your children can see "Mommy and Daddy will be together forever"?? What happened to 90 years? The biggest betrayal of all...What a lie.

According to Just Jared:

NAP TIME!

Following Jon and Kate Gosselin’s big divorce announcement, Jon & Kate Plus 8 will be going on production hiatus.

The LA Times reports that Monday will be a clip package with some new footage. the next all-new episode would be on Aug. 3. The decision for a hiatus reportedly came from the network, not the family.

Kate tearfully declared on Monday’s show, “The show must go on!”

MaryB said...

I blame the continuation of the show on Kate. She craves fame at the expense of her marriage and her children's safety and mental health.
What mother does that?

Mommy in PA said...

Jon & Kate will be on a production hiatus during divorce proceedings, & no new episodes until August:

What is Kate trying to prove with that big floppy hat, on Justjared....how ridiculous she can look? Because it worked.
ooooowoo she's a spy now.

Rosie said...

I do not think that the show will come back at all. They made a point of saying that it was the decision of TLC, not the Gosselins.
I think it is a way of weaning the Gosselins down slowly, then in August, just tell viewers that they decided not to go ahead with production. This situation will NOT get better with time, only worse between that family, and TLC knows it. Kate's day in the sun is over.

BlamingKate said...

Here's what I worry about with the show's "hiatus." They are taking a hiatus because they don't have enough usable footage for new episodes. I have a feeling they will still continue filming, but they don't have to worry about getting a new show done weekly, they have until August now. They can go back to filming stuff 2-3 months before it will air, thus resulting in a hiatus from airing new episodes for a while, but not a hiatus of filming the downward spiral of this family caused by an idiot mother. I really hope the cameras stay away until August, but I fear they will continue as usual.
