I am fully aware that your show came back on the air this past Monday, August 3rd.  However, I did not watch it, nor do I plan on watching any new episodes ever again.

What you are doing is unhealthy and is exploiting your kids, your family, your divorce.. it’s sick.

Jon, I used to be on yourside.  I was “Team Jon” all the way.  I thought Kate was a controlling, condescending individual and I pitied you on many occasions.  I was glad when you had the guts to stand up to her and just call it quits.  But now.. I think just like everyone else.. I think you’re a douche.   How many times have you seen your kids since the split.. you’ve been jetsetting around the world with your new girlfriends.. yes.. girlfriendSSSS.. it just isn’t right.

Be a man, Jon Gosselin.  You’ve got EIGHT kids.  Take responsibility.  Don’t leave it all to Kate.

It’s not that I think Kate is the better parent.  They both have major flaws.. but they need to work together for the sake of those kids.

It’s the kids I worry about..

So.. I’m not going to watch your show anymore.. sorry.  I used to love it.  I think your children are adorable and smart and entertaining, but I will not support something that could eventually lead to years and years and years of therapy.

Be parents.. take charge and do what is best for them..

Once again.. I am drawn to make another post about the beloved Gosselin family.  Why?  Because I am (sorta) a fan of the show, and because it involves children and families, and those things are important to me..

According to TLC, next week’s episode of Jon and Kate Plus Eight is going to be a one-hour special that involves some sort of important family announcement made by Jon and Kate, themselves.  According to the promo, it’s a life-changing decision that will affect every member of the family. 

Well.. watch it here..

What I can’t stand is that this family is in major turmoil.  There is a lot of stuff going on that should be kept private and TLC and the Gosselin family are totally milking it for all its worth.  Granted, we, the viewers are eating it all up and watching it all and enabling this vicious cycle.  So, honestly, I can’t really be the voice of moral reason here.

I’m curious to see what the announcement is..

Is it divorce?  Is it separation? Is it councelling?

It can’t be ending the show.. Kate would hate for that to happen.  That’s how she makes her money.. how is she going to let the show end.. no.. Kate’s too selfish for that.

As much as I would love to see the show end.. it’s won’t.. at least I dont’ think it will.. and even if it does end.. that doesn’t mean the media and paparazzi will magically leave them alone.. ha!  They wish!

I’d hate for it to be divorce.  I’d hate for TLC to document and broadcast their lives as they go through a divorce.. if the announcement is.. in fact.. a divorce.  That’s just so sad.  The kids will be going through so much.. and to make it TLC’s cash cow.. that’s just sad! 

I know what I’m going to be doing Monday night at 9pm. 

And of course.. I’ll be suckered into another Gosselin blog post.. so.. stay tuned..

I’m jumping on the “let’s blog about Jon and Kate” bandwagon..

I’m a late Gosselin-watcher.. I discovered them earlier this year.. and thanks to various marathons and many days of reruns, I have pretty much seen every episode and special they have.

Because I’ve seen almost every episode, the strain on their marriage was very clear to me BEFORE the media blew up and went hog-wild over it all..

I never really watched the show because of Jon and Kate.. I always watched the kids.. cuz they are just sooo adorable!

So far.. I’m VERY disappointed in this new season.. the strain between Jon and Kate is soo intense.. it actually makes me uncomfortable to watch scenes with the two of them in it.. and what’s up with all the “guest” appearances.. last week was Emril.. next week is the guys from that motorcycle show.. the week before that was the gang from Ace of Cakes..

The show is not even about the family anymore.. it’s just about how many different guests they can put on the show to make them “special” episodes..

Argh.

In my opinion.. as much as I love watching the show.. and watching the kids grow up.. I think they should end the show.. for the sake of the children.. and for the sake of Jon and Kate.. I won’t mind.. there are always reruns and season DVDs..
