Looks like I was right!!!!

I do believe they wore bibs at the restaurant. I don't why they were at a restaurant or what they were doing but that's what I read!

If Kate filed then I'm stumped. It seems that would be a move against TLC since separation was the theme of the episode until the end statement. Why would she do something to surprise TLC...? unless she and TLC planned that. It will be interesting what comes out.

I didn't watch the show, so I'm only going on what I have read here and another message board.

That is really the truth. Doesn't every child of divorce want to see videos of their parents talking about getting divorce and have videos of their parents crumbling marriage?

The TV tabloid show Extra! showed a home video of the two of them when they were first married, 10 years ago, when they were in their early 20's barely out of college. Kate was sooooooooooooo different. She was lighthearted, softer, carefree, no makeup. They were on their way to Disney. They couldn't get enough of each other. They were so HAPPY together.

I can understand how Jon fell in love with that woman. The woman I've seen in the few times I've watched the show, and tonight bares absolutely NO resemblance to that young woman. This woman is harsh, hard, critical, domineering, controling.
Kate is very good at playing the victim, when it suits her. She has two hats: witch and victim. She choices which one to wear to suit her the situation. On the same note, Jon has two hats: slacker and punching bag. These two are a piece of work for sure.

Me too. I didn't watch, but did turn it on for Cake Boss.

Tried that, didn't get a response.

if possible, I dislike kate even more she is self-centered and self absorbed i don't think either one of them did anything to fix the marriage, however if i, as no more than an outside observer, who is basing my comments upon what has been presented by j and k on thier tlc show, would have to say that kate is 90% to blame for this situation
I didn't see tonight's show but I have noticed that in the past as well.

Jon isn't innocent in this at all. But it's ok because he's excited about the new chapter in his life. Sounds like a responsible father of 8 to me. Imagine the kids watching that years from now...they get to hear their own father say that he's excited during the show where they announced their seperation. Very insensitive IMO. I guess his new identity is great then...cheating on his wife with a 23 year old girl who made a sex tape with her ex-boyfriend, who's brother has a horrible criminal record, spending time with this same girl in Utah on his wife's b-day and now Jon's dressing like a frat guy, pierced his ears, looking for apartments in NYC and so on. He is exhibiting the behavior of someone who wants to make up for lost time and sow his wild oats. That's my opinion anyway...
I agree, Jon is selfish, but so is Kate. She has known that Jon has been miserable for a long time and did she do anything to change that? No. She said in a past episode that she loves what she is doing, loves her life. When Jon said he doesn't she just shrugged her shoulders. That to me said a lot.

Judging from recent pictures the girls are looking perky to me as well.

6. Kate buys a brand new SUV--for the kids.
7. They exploit their kids for freebies and trips--for the kids.
8. Jon got hair plugs--for the kids.
9. Kate gets manicures, pedicures, new hairstyle, new wardrobe--for the kids
10.They announce their seperation on national TV--for the kids!!

Lets hope everyone stops watching this train wreck and those poor kids get counseling to salvage some of their childhood. Shame on you TLC.
That should be a new drinking game. Everything they say "for the kids" you have to take a drink. We would all be on the floor passed out.

They said they argued in front of the kids, and it was time to stop the arguing.

I have no idea what would happen if they tried to back out of the show. I don't know what is in the contract, if it's illegal, or money payments or having to pay back sponsors for 40 shows or what.

I assume next weeks and prob a few more are pretaped. I'll have to see what happens after that as to what the show shows, if the show continues after the shows that are already taped.
I agree. They never had any respect for each other. She treated him like a 9th child and he was very passive agressive towards her.

Any contract can be broken. It may cost them, but aren't their kids worth it? I mean, they do everything for their kids...but break their contracts.

From the article about Kate filing for divorce.

"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."
================================================== =

Bolded by me. I wonder what that means? I'm honestly surprised Kate filed, I can't help but wonder what "activities" she means. Is there any advantage to be the one to actually file for the divorce? Does who files matter at all for anything?

I didn't like how Jon said he let Kate rule the roost, but now he is standing up on his own two feet and is proud of himself. If he passively let her rule roost for 8 or 9 years, how is she supposed to know that all of sudden he doesn't want that? Doesn't sound like he talked to her about it, sounds like he just decided to be a jerk one day. Yes, I know Kate was controlling, ect, ect, but it didn't seem like Jon wanted to step up either. He said himself that he let her rule the roost, maybe because he didn't want to. They have 8 kids, someone had to be "run" things. I'm sorry I don't believe Jon tried at all, if you decide to change the dynamic almost 10 years into marriage you have to talk to the other person and let them know that.

Yep, good luck with that Kate! For someone used to getting it her way, the process she's initiated may be a rude awakening.

Flame suit on.....

I think this whole situation is VERY sad. I just knew these two were going to work it out. What happen to therapy? They could NOT have been separated for too long - one has already filed for divorce? What happen to RESPECTING the wedding vows? They said them twice. I am so sick of people getting married and lying to their friends, family and GOD himself. As soon as times get tough – somebody has to leave – run. Thinking the grass is greener somewhere else. They have 8 children together - they should be BONDED for life. Yes I said it. I wish I was the judge on their case, I'd mandate them to at least ONE YEAR in marriage therapy. Come to think of it – two years in therapy – for that second wedding!!! They should work it out – Period!!!!!

I remember her asking at the tummy tuck and being turned down by the doctor as not necessary.

Did you watch Cake Boss? I thought it was hilarious!

I'm confused about why Jon said he was "excited". In what context was it used?
