Jon and Kate Plus 8

anyone?

I finally gave in from all the media around them and hearing about his affair and how she's such a witch to him.

I'm hooked! I've been watching the repeats and the new ones. Its just so sad to see where theyre at in their realationship now. So sad. Especially because of the kids. The kids are so freaking adorable!!!!

I never watched this show, I have just seen the media hype. What is it about? They have right kids? Are they adopted or did she have them? Why are they so special?

OMG. These people used to live in my town when the show first started. Their old house is for sale and my future sister- and brother-in-law actually looked at it (as well as the creepy house with a demon that was featured on Paranormal State- but that's a different post altogether).

I've never actually watched the show, though.

Noone watches this show?!?!

Kel- they had 2 twins first (dont know the whole story) and then i think they couldn't get pregnant so they did that thing (?) and she ends up being pregnant with 6 in her belly. 8 kids total!

I've never seen the show, but since I read US magazine, I certainly feel like I do! I feel bad for those kids. Neither parents seems to have their best interests as their main focus. The older twins must be aware enough to realize the gossip that is going on in the media by now. School must be hard for them.

i have only watched the show a few times, and quickly changed the channel because Kate is so very annoying. She is so strict with her kids and mean to Jon. I always felt bad for that guy. I always wanted to scream at the TV GET OUT! GET OUT! SAVE YOURSELF!

And what stylist is telling Kate that her 1985 hairstyle looks good?

jj- YES I totally agree that she's mean and rude to Jon.

one of my cousins told me that she dosen't blame Kate for being that way with Jon cause he's stupid. I totally disagree! Shes so freaking rude to him. The way she asks him to do stuff for her or the kids. Its rare to hear her say please or thank you....at least with her really meaning it.

Now with the kids....yes she can be mean....but with ALL those kids, I totally understand her being strict in some ways and also sticking by her schedule

i've watched a few seasons of j & k + 8 and i guess i like it enough to keep watching. the kids are ADORABLE but i hate the way kate treats jon. my daughters love the show and they always ask to watch it.
i think they are basically using their kids for money and that's the part i despise. what's going to happen when those kids are older? it really makes me sad.

I've watched the show a few times and the kids are really what make the show compelling. They're SO cute and they're really sweet to each other. I kind of love Jon--he's just a chill, laid back kind of dude, but I think he got into more than he signed up for with the amount of kids and tv deal. Kate just seems so intense and I think she's the one that's in it all for the money, which is sad.

I haven't seen any of this season--I refuse to watch it. I think it's awful that their marriage is splitting up and they're choosing to film episodes and exploit the kids and the downfall of their marriage to make money. And shame of TLC for choosing to continue with the show right now. I think it's all incredibly tacky at this point.

I feel the same as you, NCShopper. I used to watch, but I will never watch it again. I actually quit last season right before they moved. The show changed direction and I didn't like it. It shifted from what I used to love, which was the interaction between the kids, mainly, and just day to day "normal" life, to one big commercial for products, magazines, theme parks, etc. The vibe was changing, probably due to tension in the marriage, and I just lost interest. Now, with them exploiting the breakup of their marriage, I'm just disgusted with both of them. I've never liked her, and now I think she's gone over the deep end. The money and fame turned her into an uglier person (and I didn't think that was possible a few years ago!). They need to quit the show and get their lives back on track, together or not. It's out of control.

Same here.  Maybe its bc the kids are in school and there's nothing better to talk about?  It was interesting to see how they were raising kids, keeping their individuality, and affording all of it.  Now that everything is luxurious, she is dressing more risque (come on, what mother of 8 wears skin tight mini skirt and 4" heels to run errands???), and the divide between jon+kate is even bigger.  Maybe the appeal was how 2 young people could work through it and eventually make it.  With all the rumors I am turned off entirely.

Regarding the way she treats him.... its sad but I see ALOT of couples like that, where the woman physically hits him in public, nothing is ever good enough, she is always complaining and he is always rolling his eyes....   I don't know what attracts men to this type but it doesn't seem to last!
