Kate - Jon + a camera crew = 8 confused kids

Well, we all knew it was coming right? Splitsville for the TV family of 10. Announced tonight that divorce papers were filed. So sad for all those little kids.

I think it is a huge mistake to put your entire life in everyone's living room. To have your family scrutinized under a microscope. I have watched the show off and on. My kids love it, probably because that house has even more kid chaos then ours does...imagine that. But that Kate, I tell ya, she runs a pretty tight ship. Not a lot of room for anything other than what she plans. I am not surprised the way she carried her husbands testicles around in her purse that sooner or later he was going to grow another pair. The sad thing is they have all this very uncomfortable tension between them. They plan to continue to film their TV show-really?

My plee to them is this...Screw the contract with TLC, screw the media. Pull the wagons around your children and shut the rest of the world out. We do not need to see this. Take care of your kids and figure your life out. I imagine over the years they have changed a lot and probably are not compatible but for the love of God and all that is holy--Protect your babies! Divorce privately not in the public eye. Your kids do not need to watch this later in life. This is not quality TV-this is America Rubber necking at your trainwreck of a marriage.

Whew, thanks I feel better now....

Oh and one more thing... am I the only one that thinks Kate's recent hair do is a little nutty...for some reason she reminds me of Max Headroom?!

THANK YOU for the comment on her hair! Every time I see it, I dream of developing Edward Scissorhands hands and going to town on it.

As for the show - I have never seen it, but I am appalled that people would use their children as a means of making money. The entire concept is just wrong in my opinion!

Maybe her hair is a cry for help. :D

I, with millions of others, last night watched this train wreck. The Best Husband In The World actually watched some of it with me.

This is what we came up. They (Jon and Kate) kept talking about what was best for the kids, how they bought the house for the kids, that they were separating for the kids....

If they had done something for their MARRIAGE - instead of all this "for the kids" they wouldn't be in this situation.

the best thing for kids is parents who love each other. Sad they didn't spend as much time on their marriage as kate does on her hair, nails and tanning schedules.

I think that's where she keeps Jon's family jewels hidden...ain't no one going to look there!
Honestly, I've never watched. It is a sad situation and I've decided not to watch any TLC programming as long as they are willing enablers to this tragedy.
I'll step off my soap box now, hopefully without tripping over my righteous indignation!

It is very sad. I don't watch the show, but I have seen snippets here and there. I'm sorry they couldn't have worked this out to the betterment of their marriage. I agree, they need to turn the cameras off and regroup in private.

Oh I so agree with your plee!
I do wish they would use some of the gobs of money they have made to break that TLC contract and just take care of themselves. Any Mommy would understand.
My little family of 4 are fans of their huge family. I hope they find peace:)
