    I'm with you. I think, like Kate said, this would have happened with or without the show. She mentioned several reasons why they have been doing the show, not just to have a tape of their lives. I think this has been going on for a very long time, but I still think she would have liked to have tried to work it out. He won't talk to her. He sees the brass ring and a chance to get out from under 8 kids, and he's gone. Although I'm betting he'll still enjoy the money.

    I just can't get past how excited Jon was..he almost forgot to add that it's about the kids, after he said he had to do what was good for him.

    I agree. I did not watch tonight and do not plan to watch again. I am just disgusted in the two of them and can not believe that they can't see what they are doing to their children. It is disgusting. :sad1:

    The bodyguard is definitely a possibility. She's just very discreet.

    For those of you who are offended and disgusted by the show, I'd suggest writing in to TLC. We all recommend it when something goes wrong at Disney so why not with this situation?

    very sweet of you to say .. but I've found my closure, I think. Especially after the ridiculous commercial I just saw on TLC promoting next week's show. And especially after these people announced their divorce on national TV. that's just wrong, wrong, wrong. I don't give a flying flip what Jon and Kate do now.

    I hope not! The bodyguard has a wife and kids too. That would be two marriages that this show has broken up!

    Kate----I, me, my kids

    Jon----us, we, our kids


    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

    No I'm not kidding. Are you? I agree it was the most telling thing he said and I stand by my comment that he is a selfish man. How can he say that about this whole mess on camera?? Jon isn't innocent in this at all. But it's ok because he's excited about the new chapter in his life.:sad2: Sounds like a responsible father of 8 to me. :sad2: 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...:rolleyes1

    -He's excited and she's crushed--

    I think if I saw my parents saying this I would be mad - crooked houses or not. One thing I think is that while he may have been bossed around there are other ways of handling things like discussing it and working it out. I think he's immature and is showing it now. I like how he is also quick to jump from the "schedule" if he is offered a job and he is excited and such... what a loser. It seems like he is a-ok with this and let the party begin. I think she made her decision a long time ago what was important and maybe she had to step up to be the dominate one in the family because spineless couldn't... it went too far and she liked the attention she was getting and therefore the the show will go on. I also believe that all of her thoughts regarding walking the kids was teamwork and yada yada is a wee bit too late - sour grapes I guess.

    If you ask me they are both at fault - him for not being man enough to stand up and say things have to change with how he was treated and her not being content with her most important role - being a mom to those kids that she holds over the reason for everything that they have done.

    I bet if truth be known, I bet the kids would rather have two parents that work together and love each other instead of two monsters who have their own best interests, desires, and stupidity at the forefront.

    I think this is best - and TLC needs to promote other shows because this one is a trilogy of what not to do in a marriage... so very very sad...

    I feel for the kids, the little ones are just precious and darling, cara is beautiful and mady needs her knickers readjusted but she's cute all the same...

    Just my opinion... signing off now.....

    I wouldn't say it's all the fault of the show. I think a lot of the problem, besides the show, is the fact that Kate has acknowledged that Jon was very happy with the twins, but she wanted more, so they went ahead and got pregnant again. The demise of their marriage is strictly because Kate does what Kate wants and doesn't give a crap about what Jon wants, now or ever.

    As I've said all along, I think this marriage has been over for ages. I wonder if Kate has been so hard on Jon because he really hasn't been there right along. He's been like a 9th child.

    Jon also said tonight that they have a schedule all set up for the kids, but if he gets a job, that may have to be changed. Yes, he has checked out..and he's excited to do it. Do I think he's excited to be off the show? They say he'll still be on it. Do I think he's happy to lose the responsibility? You bet I do. He gets to shed any hard part of bringing up the family, and he knows most will blame Kate, so he's home free.

    I do hope this is the last season, just because what else is there to show? That said, I think pulling the show out from under the kids right now would add more stress.

    As for the crooked houses, even Jon admitted that was a much better place for them. The other spot was way too far from the house. I would have been afraid someone would have walked off with one of the kids. I wouldn't have let my kids be so far away from the house at their ages.

    This has to be one of the saddest things I have seen. Like a fool, I said I didn't want to watch the show but I caught the last few minutes. I wish I would have stuck to my guns & not seen it. I feel so awful for those kids.

    Where are you getting the idea he's going to be irresponsible regarding his chidren? :confused3 He's going to be there. KATE was the one running around the country, not being at home. :sad2: He get's to be free of the emotionally abuse ball and chain known as Kate Gosselin. Good riddance! :p


    Yes, this is exactly what I mean. Sometimes the best RESPONSIBLE thing you can do for your children is to GET divorced. End the dysfunction, the stress, the arguing, the abuse, the traumas EVERY SINGLE FRIGGING TIME THE PARENTS ARE TOGETHER. :sad1: :headache:

    Actually, AFTER divorce, when the parents no longer have failed expectations of each other that they keep hurting each other over, and if they can come to a place of peace, the kids do so much better, than in a marriage where the parents just stay together becasue of the kids but keep hating each other.

    I totally agree. Jon seemed like he couldn't wait to jump out of that chair and "get on with his life." --- and the money. I notice he said he will probably still do the show. If it wasn't so sad, I would have laughed when he said he might get a job offer. I bet he's hoping for his OWN show "Jon on His Own" or "Just Jon" or something. :sad2:

    Nope. She asked that one be added into her free tummy tuck but was told to "no." She's had one recently I believe.

    The only thing that was missing was TLC having one of the kids say "Next on Jon & Kate + Eight, Mommy and Daddy make their tearful announcement!" It was rock bottom.

    There's nothing left to see here people... time to move on.

    With any luck, this backlash from this "announcement" will come back to bite them ALL in the butt and the show will tank.. Of course it's up to the viewers.. Keep watching and they'll keep filming - because it's for sure that the so-called "parents" aren't going to pull the plug..

    Exactly.. I can't imagine anyone who cares about those children thinking it's still a good idea to watch this show after what Kate & Jon just did to their children tonight..

    What's even more disgusting is now that they have "aired" this, the paparazzi are going to go NUTS and there will be NO escape for those children.. They will see and hear everything..:mad:

    Looks like another letter writing/email campaign for me and mine tomorrow.. TLC first and foremost - then I'll google who the sponsors were for tonight's episode..

    Oh good grief! I don't believe this!! I just turned on Cake Boss and they are going to rerun tonights episode at 11 pm!! I really don't think they can sink any lower..:mad:
