Jon and Kate plus DATES! (and 8 rugrats sold separately)

I still think its strange to dress the kids to look alike...

I still think its strange to dress the kids to look alike...

You had to know it was going to happen.  One kid changes the quality of life for a married couple.  I definitely know about that feeling.  You grow and care more for the child, not really for yourself.  You begin to grow apart and then you wonder why did you get married in the first place.  When those doubts start creeping in, then you know that your race has been run. That, and when the scandal rags catch you creeping…

For once, reality TV is real.  People get divorced all the time.  One half of all marriages end in divorce, so its really a crapshoot.  John and Kate will be looking for new partners now…it was only a matter of time when you have the Enquirer on your back.  The Los Angeles Times provides clarity.

In a much-promoted episode of the hit series Monday night, Jon and Kate Gosselin, the parents of eight children, announced in separate interviews they were separating; seconds later, text appeared on a black screen to add that the couple had decided to “legally dissolve” their 10-year marriage. The children will stay in the house, the couple said, and Jon and Kate will switch off living there.
And the show, apparently, will go on. TLC executives declined to comment Monday, but the Gosselins had committed to a full season of 40 episodes and indicated they would continue allowing camera crews access to film the family’s life, just not with Mom and Dad there together.
The announcement was hardly a surprise. Viewers of the 2-year-old series had seen the couple’s relationship deteriorate recently, and even people who don’t watch have been exposed to their problems through an endless stream of headlines — “Caught With Other Woman” and “Inside Jon’s Prison” — in the tabloid and celebrity media.
Now, we don’t watch the show,  but you have to feel bad for them 1) because its a divorce 2) the kids.  But, with Hollyweird, the show must go on.  They are going to continue to make that show and make that gwop.  Gotta get paid, even working with someone you now hate.  But, here is the scuttlebutt that people love to hear about.  Kate is not above the talk too, as here is pictures of her at the beach.  The discussion is about her and her bodyguard.  Here is a take of another gossip blog

Kate Gosselin, of the popular TLC reality show Jon & Kate Plus 8, is horrified by the latest rumors of infidelity.  This time it is Kate who is in the middle of a scandal, reportedly having an affair with her bodyguard and family friend Steve Neild.

According to the latest rumor mill, Kate has been engaging in an extra-marital relationship with a member of her security detail.  He travels extensively with the family as they make public appearances and travels with Kate as she meets her schedule of media commitments across the country.

Hear what Kate’s brother Kevin Kreider and his wife Jodi had to say on the subject.  Uncle Kevin and Aunt Jodi gave a reluctant and sad interview about the deterioration of the Gosselin household.

The Los Angeles Times continues with its analysis of the problem.

But with the success came their indoctrination into the tabloid swamp. And as the show entered its fifth season in May, the lens has focused less on the kiddie chaos and more on the turbulent marriage.
Both Jon and Kate have been plagued by rumors of infidelity in recent weeks — he with a 23-year-old teacher and she with her bodyguard. Added to the turmoil was an investigation by the Pennsylvania Labor Department into the show’s possible violation of child labor laws, an allegation TLC has denied.
When the show returned May 25 — after dozens of tabloid covers, blurbs on blogs and snippets on TV gossip shows documenting the couple’s woes — viewers tuned in.
The season premiere drew 9.8 million viewers, more than twice as many as had watched the fourth-season finale. But ratings for subsequent episodes have cooled, with last week’s installment attracting only 2.9 million viewers.
You don’t have to choose sides, they both are alleged cheaters.  Where is my man Joey Greco and the detectives of Cheaters?  They need to combine the two shows and have a double episode where they follow John and Kate and bring them together with their side pieces and air their dirty laundry out in the open.
Careful Joey!  She seems stabby!

If I am going to take an examination, I have to say that Jon is a smart guy, since it was the flexible Spongebob in the show.
“Kate and I have decided to separate,” Jon said, sitting alone on the couch.
“I was too passive,” Jon said of their relationship. “I just . . . went along with everything. Now I finally stood up on my own two feet and I’m proud of myself.”
Kate offered her own outlook: “It’s very uncomfortable at this point because Jon has a lot of anger towards me and I would love to discuss it with him but he won’t talk to me,” she said. Before the recent strife, they were just a couple trying to manage a set of twins and rambunctious sextuplets. The combination of his cool and calm demeanor and her sometimes controlling and overly organized personality were first seen on the one-hour special “Surviving Sextuplets and Twins” on Discovery Health in 2006. Its success eventually led to the TLC series. It centered mostly on the couple’s home life in Pennsylvania and the idiosyncrasies involved with raising a gaggle of children.
Dude is still young, he is only 32 and he has a bunch of kids.  He should be happy for that blessing and for the fact that he is out of being under the thumb of Kate.  Plus, in reading about this, I found this site, which lists reasons to dislike Kate or this site which lists the missing people in the family klan.

    Still don’t know who these people are and why they are on TV. Plus that dude looks creepy as hell.

    Agreed with the whole “why are these folks getting paid to have their lives taped?” bit.

    Also agree with Steve that Kate is still looking pretty damn good in a bikini despite what must be a gaping hole of Grand Canyon proportions between her thighs. I, too, would beat it up.

    and by “I, too” I mean, along with her bodyguard, I’d also tap that.
