    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?:confused3

    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.

    I didn't see tonight's show but I have noticed that in the past as well.

    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.


    So is he J-Goss now? I pray that he doesn't come out with a rap album like K-Fed...:laughing:

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

    :rotfl:As long as we don't go rouge we should be okay. :laughing:

    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.:laughing:

    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.

    haven't watched and probably won't now...but I just feel horrible for those poor kids. I know how horrible my divorce was for my girls....I can't imagine the added stress of being on tv.....

    Oh yeah...we are getting married again because we are going to be TOGETHER FOREVER....:sad2:

    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?

    Yeah, she doesn't want to discuss these reasons until she has had time to hype them for ratings for her show.

    Interesting...

    Wonder when they filmed the interviews for this episode? I know Jon said he was 2 hours late as he was not sure if he was coming or not. Maybe just the fact that she can't even rely on him to show up when he's supposed to was the straw that broke the camels back.

    Or he found & rented an apartment in NYC, which goes against their original plan....so she needs to get the ball rolling & custody arrangements in wirting.

    Talking to the paparazzi? Saying he had no idea where she was? Was he with the Glassman girl this weekend? I read something but didn't click to see the pictures. :confused3:

    He said he was excited about this new chapter of his life. He went on to say he's only 32. What irked me was that he was smirking part of the interview, even my DH saw it said what a loser. DH then said why does Jon look like he's smiling when he's talking about divorcing his wife. :confused3

    I presume it was the news that Jon was apartment hunting in NY and when asked by reporters if he knew where Kate was he said "I have no idea" and didn't seem to care. I think he also opening acknowledged still having contact with "the other woman".

    The people still defending Jon have got to be out of their minds! :confused3 This is a man who cheats on his wife with a 23 year old woman, goes out drinking with the college crowd, looks for an apartment in an entirely different state, is EXCITED about the next chapter of his life, because after all, he's "only 32", and is sporting brand new ear piercings!

    Come on people! He is out of control. This is not how a responsible parent with his children's best interest at heart acts.

    And say what you want about Kate, but you know what? Jon was treated the way she had to treat him, like the 9th child. He obviously can't make a good decision if his (or his children's) lives depended on it.

    She is doing what she has to do to provide for the kids, as far as taping the show goes. And just why oh why is Jon going to continue to be on the show if he was so against it all along? Give me a break.

    That man really burned my biscuits tonight!!!! :headache:

    I can't agree with that, until someone leaks the contract. Some contracts are pretty ironclad, and aren't just about money. And if it is about money, what it the fine was a 10 million, or even a billion dollars? What then? Do people here really think they have that much cash laying around? Should they strip the kids (if they have them) savings? Should they let both houses go into foreclosure? How do they pay something like that? So easy to judge, when it's not our kids lifes we are talking about.

    I just wonder, if Jon was so unhappy, why did he sign the contract? Why didn't he refuse on his and his kids behalf? Why doesnt he buy out the contract with his share?

    Any contractural lawyers here?

    I've said it before, everyone I ever knew or knew of that had vow renewals ended in divorce. I've told DH that we will never have our vows renewed - it's a one time deal.

    I completely understand.

    I think the dogs will stay. This (marital problems) has been going on for months. I think the dogs were bought for protection. Kate has said she "doesn't want to be alone", I think, even though she's not fond of them, she will feel protected and now the entire country knows that there are 2 German Shepards on the premises & in the house. Also, if the kids love the dogs (and obviously they do), I think they'll stay for that reason. Imagine taking those dogs away from Mady!!!

    But if it was the apartment hunting -- isn't that something TLC is helping with so they can find a place that's ready to film in? And being producers of the show (J&K) how could she not know that?
