Jon and Kate

in All Posts

I’ve got to make this super speedy because I have a massive project due at work, and I’m so behind (ughhh).

 

Lunch was delicious:

I had a whole wheat English Muffin with melted cheddar cheese plus a side salad (these look like eggs but are NOT – it’s just melted cheese).

CIMG5050

And 1 cup of Roasted Red Pepper Soup.

Plus, a chocolate (kind of melty) for dessert:

And I just broke into my first mid-afternoon snack, an orange.

Pop Culture Drama

 

As many of you know, I’m a BIG pop culture freak.  Love, love, love trashy celebrity blogs.  If you’re a fan of the TLC show Jon and Kate Plus 8, it’s likely that you’ve heard that Jon is apparently having an affair, and now there’s rumors that Kate is, too.  Both deny the affairs. 

Kate is now on the cover of People saying that Jon and her might break up. I’m not convinced this isn’t all publicity for the upcoming season of their show, but I also think they are decent parents and wouldn’t do that to their kids.

 

I’ve read message boards in which people defend the couple and others rip apart Kate for being a control freak who "drove" Jon to cheat.  Now, I think that’s totally displacing the blame (if Jon really did cheat).  But, I’m curious about what you guys have to say. 

 

Do you think Jon cheated?  What about Kate?  What’s your opinion on the show, anyway — do you think its exploitative?  Or, do you really not care about these people and their 1,000,000 children?

    I have only seen this show once, and I totally though Jon was depressed and he was probably on the show maybe 10 minutes. I have no idea if they cheated on each other, but from the episode I saw he did not look happy at all. I don’t know if it was from his wife, the publicity or the thousands of children, or a combination of it all.

  • redheadedjournal May 13, 2009, 9:55 am

    I am a huge fan of the show! I would hope they wouldn’t use adultery as a publicity stunt

  • Beth May 13, 2009, 9:56 am

    I think their show is ridiculous and exploitative. I am sure they signed on for the show to have income for their family, but I disagree with it. It’s blowing up in their faces and not fair to their kids. I don’t know if they cheated, don’t care either, and it’s even WORSE that this mother is on the cover of People looking a little skanked out (in my opinion) and talking about ending her marriage. Go to therapy, not to People magazine!

  • Audrey W. May 13, 2009, 9:56 am

    i love this show and i really hope none of the rumors are true and they can work it out..i really don’t think the whole drama should be on the cover of magazines though the 2 older girls can read and how awful would it be if they were at the store/friends house/dr.s office etc. and had to see a story like that, so awful.

  • Amanda @ Fake Ginger May 13, 2009, 9:58 am

    It’s a sad story but only for the children.

    Kate’s basically sold their childhood in exchange for free Hawaii trips and a tummy tuck. I don’t feel a tiny bit bad for her even if he is cheating on her.

    Jon’s expressed that he doesn’t like doing the show ON CAMERA and she’s blown him off. He needs to be a man and put his foot down already.

    Btw, can you imagine what child support on 8 children would look like? Holy hell.

  • Katherine May 13, 2009, 9:58 am

    i swear the cheese looks like little eggs in the photo!!!

  • Lisa May 13, 2009, 10:08 am

    I love the show! I really hope they don’t split up. I think if Kate agreed to stop doing the show, that would help repair the marriage. It seems Kate loves the celebrity aspect and Jon doesn’t. Either way, Jon shouldn’t be hanging out with random chicks at bars late night. I really feel so sad about what’s become of all this. I think if they would have stopped doing the show a little earlier, things would be better.

  • Sara May 13, 2009, 10:12 am

    I’m so glad someone else is reading about this and not just me! šŸ™‚ As much as I hope they didn’t do anything, it wouldn’t surprise me if one/both of them cheated. Their life is SO stressful and I’m sure it’s taken a toll on their marriage. For the kids though, I hope everything works out…especially Colin, he’s my fave. šŸ™‚

  • Brandi May 13, 2009, 10:13 am

    1. that cheese looks like eggs šŸ™‚

    2. I’m sorry the chocolate melted! I was wondering if that would happen, being shipping to good old hot florida!

    3. I’ve watched the show before because they’re kids (the little ones) are super cute. I don’t know if either of them cheated and I don’t really care, but I hope that everything gets worked out for the best for their kids.

  • SuperDots May 13, 2009, 10:13 am

    Eh, I hope the best for them, but I do not watch the show and well…I guess I fall into the “don’t care about them and their 1,000,000 kids” category! šŸ™‚

  • *Erica* May 13, 2009, 10:15 am

    I LOVE Jon and Kate Plus Eight! I am so sad at all the accusations flying both ways. I just pray that none of it is true. I read Multiple Blessings and was so touched by their faith and many of their “lessons” also applied to me as I am recovering from breast cancer. I am just hopeful that it is not true.

  • Marissa May 13, 2009, 10:16 am

    I used to love watching their show when it was about everyday activities but now it seems all they do is take trips someone else has paid for. Honestly, the kids aren’t as cute anymore because they’re older (And I could never stand Mady’s behavior and why they let her act the way she does).

    At first I thought the cheating rumors were just rumors but now that Kate keeps popping up in magazines granting “exclusive” interviews about a very personal allegation, I’m more inclined to believe it’s a huge publicity stunt for their show and her books. If they were just rumors and not publicity antics, they would have dealt with it privately without feeling the need to grant a new exclusive interview every day.

    At the end of season 4 Jon made it pretty clear that he no longer wanted the TV show and he looked so miserable.

    And on another note, what is up with Kate claiming a week ago that they still loved each other and were going to work out their problems and suddenly this week she’s claiming that she’ll raise the kids on her own if she has to?

  • Hi! I'm Erin May 13, 2009, 10:18 am

    I’ve never watched the show because, well, I don’t care about people and their 8 million kids. However, it does not surprise me at all that one or both of them would cheat.

  • Leah @ Simply Fabulous May 13, 2009, 10:23 am

    Holy crap! I haven’t heard of this!
    I would never think that they’d have an affair on each other. How the heck would they have the time? lol. I hope the media are blowing this out of the water.. we’ll see I suppose!

    Great lunch btw!

  • seesaraheat May 13, 2009, 10:26 am

    I haven’t seen too many episodes but from the ones I have seen it seems to me like she yells at him constantly. However, I don’t think there is an excuse for cheating at all!

    I have no idea if its true or not but sadly a lot of gossipy “rumors” do end up being true after all. This is sad, either way.

  • Heather May 13, 2009, 10:27 am

    I've never watched the show but heard from a friend about an article she read in a rag mag. It had interviews with people from their church saying that they are totally in this for the money & not the Christian family they portray themselves to be. So I'm led to believe that they are using the adultery as a hoax for additional monies.

    Just adding more gossip to the fire! šŸ™‚ lol

  • Monica May 13, 2009, 10:34 am

    I like the show, but only watch re-runs when it’s on. I have no idea if either one cheated, but I do this it’s super shitty if they did.

  • jane May 13, 2009, 10:34 am

    i've never watched Jon&Kate, but i have seen The Dugers on TLC- and they have 18 kids!! You should catch that show, it's crazy to see- they have to use a mini bus when they go out and buy/cook bulk food, etc.
    plus, all the kids have names that begin with "J." SO as you could guess, after about 10 they had to start getting creative haha…

  • Allison R May 13, 2009, 10:36 am

    I don’t think anyone can drive anyone to CHEAT. I think people can drive people crazy, but then the other person should talk about change or call it quits. Cheating isn’t acceptable! All of that said, Kate is a bitch. But I may be too with ten thousand crazy munchkins running around.

  • hopeinpeanutbutterandoats May 13, 2009, 10:42 am

    o gossshhhh im obsessed with this show/family…i don’t believe the tabloids though.
    i would hope they would try to stay together because i’m rootin for em! what they need is to just get out of the limelight for a little bit and get themselves back together. no fame is worth a breakup of a marriage.

  • Tabby May 13, 2009, 10:43 am

    I love Jon and Kate! I do not think that either one of them had an affair, I think its all tabloids blowing things out of proportion. I think it started as something that was not true but now they are trying to use it to their advantage and promote their show. If someone is going to spread rumors about you, you might as well try and twist it around and use it to your advantage!

  • Melissa @ For the Love of Health May 13, 2009, 10:44 am

    Awesome looking lunch!

    It would be highly unfortunate if they split up because they have so many children. I hope he didn’t cheat! If you are unhappy you should attempt to work it out and if it doesn’t work, then end it.

    I often see the show on at the gym. She does seem rather controlling but it is no way justifies cheating.

    I think they should be much more private about everything but then again if they were they wouldnt have a TV show…..I personally would not want my whole world on TV LOL Celeb-dom is NOT for me.

  • tfh May 13, 2009, 10:49 am

    Jon & Kate + 8 is my guilty pleasure. šŸ™‚ I think cheating is stupid no matter what– it's just dishonest and disrespectful, and the kids usually will end up resenting the parent who cheats for a lifetime, which is so not worth it. Thankfully they have enough $$$ for really good marital counseling…

  • Sistercooks.blogspot.com May 13, 2009, 10:54 am

    I honestly used to love the show, but now I cant stand it- Kate is just so much of a nasty control freak. She doesnt let the kids be kids. She also uses them to get to do stuff for free, like disneyland and hawaii, and all sorts of stuff. I can see how her shrewness and constant traveling to earn money, more money then they could possibly need, since most of thier things are donated anyways, could easily push Jon away. I dont think anyone deserves to be treated as she treats him. The name calling and derogatory comments scream emotional abuse. sorry that was the psych major in me talking.

  • Meredith (Pursuing Balance) May 13, 2009, 10:56 am

    I don’t think Jon is happy with how his life has turned out. From what I understand, after the twins he didn’t even want another kid but Kate said “oh let’s just try for one more” and then they got 6. It’s hard to see your coworkers go out and have fun after work when you always have to go home because you are facing so much responsibility. Regardless, cheating is never the right thing to do.

  • Trish May 13, 2009, 10:58 am

    It’s really so sad. For anybody going through this sort of thing – my heart goes out to them. I can’t imagine having to do it with the whole world watching and commenting.

    I doubt it’s a stunt, they seem above that. And that would really hurt the kids.

    Cheating is such a horrid thing to do. Shame on them if they did – or anybody who does. There is never a good excuse. I get the stress and so forth – but fix the problem, don’t go out and make it worse. Either work it out or move on.

    I would really hope it’s all not true. But either way, I wish them the best. It’s a hard thing and I hope they pull through it and come out better for it.

  • nibblesandwiggles May 13, 2009, 11:02 am

    I think it would seriously be sick if you have 8 kids and have an affair. That being said I never thought Jon looked that happy.

    BTW – your melted cheese looked like little easy side over eggs. hehe

  • Tami May 13, 2009, 11:10 am

    i have watched 2 minutes of this show and just thought it was all just too much….8 kids is a lot to deal with , my two are too much for me sometimes….

  • haya May 13, 2009, 11:10 am

    i used to like the show but i never ever watch it anymore because kate is a terrible person. to her kids, her family and her husband and all the people that help them out. it’s just a waste of my time.

    i would not be surprised if jon is cheating. i wouldn’t be able to be faithful if i had a wife like kate either. (i wouldn’t cheat. i’d just ask for a divorce but you gotta do what you gotta do)

  • Kelly May 13, 2009, 11:12 am

    To be honest, I can’t tolerate the show at all because I teach kindergarten all day so I find it really hard to listen to whining at night. But, Kate has always really bugged me. Of course, that doesn’t give him a right to cheat at all. I just think they have a lot of stress and one or two kids can be hard on a marriage, not to mention 8, plus being celebrities. I’m sure it’s very difficult. I would not be shocked if they did split up.

  • Healthnutcutie May 13, 2009, 11:13 am

    I sure hope it isn’t true! I love the show, but Kate seems so mean to poor Jon. I too read her first book and on paper she seems very sincere, but in real life not-so-much. I agree that Jon seems like he wants out of the show. I hope for the sake of their children these are all rumors.

  • Linda May 13, 2009, 11:15 am

    You didn’t mention you made poached eggs for breakfast, or are those not eggs?

  • Holly May 13, 2009, 11:17 am

    Have you seen the blog of Laurie (as in “aunt Laurie,” Kate’s sister-in-law?). It’s very interesting….she describes how Kate told TLC NOT to let Laurie and her family get paid to star in certain episodes. After I found that out, it just left a bad taste in my mouth.

    Those kids are ADORABLE, though. I want to take them home!

    One thing is for sure – these poor kids….I do feel horrible for them. I agree that there is no excuse if one/both of them cheated, but I find myself getting SO excited if Jon smiles during an episode. That is so sad!

  • Lynne May 13, 2009, 11:18 am

    I watch the show sometimes, and find Kate annoying, to say the least. She treats Jon like one of her kids and seems to constantly put him down. She’s always yelling at him and it seems he can do nothing right in her eyes. None of that is an excuse for cheating, but their marriage doesn’t come across as a very loving one. It’s hard to say if any of this is publicity for the upcomming season, but usually when a rumor is this wide spread, there tends to be some truth to it. I hope not for the sake of their kids, but who knows?

  • Red Head, Yellow Dog May 13, 2009, 11:20 am

    I haven’t seen the show (we don’t have cable) but I have my other trashy tv show loves (The Hills anyone?! so bad but oh so good)

    when I first saw your lunch I thought those were eggs on your english muffin!

  • Thinspired May 13, 2009, 11:22 am

    Caitlin we share a love for pop culture šŸ˜‰ I am a huge fan of the show. I watched all the episodes recently (got hooked and had to watch them all), and I defintiely felt going through the episodes that they (actually, Kate) had a growing love for the spotlight and they were kind of selling out for all these freebies.
    Now the fame and fortune is showing its dark side and I feel really bad for the kids.
    Jon showed reluctance to do Season 5 but she clearly wanted to keep going. I feel bad but also do not know why they continue to film. If my marriage was falling apart like that, I would try to get out of the spotlight and get into marriage counselling!

  • Brooke May 13, 2009, 11:41 am

    I never saw the show but always heard about it!

    I don’t know if he cheated on her but I feel like, when would he have the time to do so with the filming and 8 kids?? But then again, how would I know?! haha

    p.s. You totally tricked me with the cheese..I thought it was eggs fasho!

  • Julie May 13, 2009, 11:44 am

    I can’t watch the show because Kate is a huge *rhymes with blunt*. Sorry, but she is. She treats that poor man like dirt. I don’t care if he cheated or not, but either way they need therapy. That poor guy must have zero self-esteem.

  • Carolina John May 13, 2009, 11:44 am

    yea i think jon ran around. and kate’s a crazy bitch pulling her hair out and doing whatever she can to keep her sanity. but that didn’t “drive jon to cheat”. most guys are opportunistic. so some other young thing must have been shaking something at jon and he took the opportunity that was presented to him.

    that sounds like i know my way around an affair which is not the case. but i know guys. and i hate that show. since we have 2 kids, it makes me so uncomfortable to see them have the same fights over 8 kids that we have with 2 kids. i don’t want to spend my time without kid dominated tv watching shows about kids and how they can stress out their parents.

  • RhodeyGirl/Sabrina May 13, 2009, 11:59 am

    i love the show. just started watching it recently and i am semi obsessed. it is the perfect show to watch while i am cooking dinner (dvr) and also makes me excited and scared for many babies.

    i hope none of it is true.

  • T May 13, 2009, 12:16 pm

    I agree that Kate is a bit on the nagging aggressive side but that in no way means that it was ok for Jon to cheat.

    I think things were going south and that maybe Kate knew things were going on but chose to ignore it. Now she has to deal with it because Jon “made poor judgment” and was caught.

    I watch and enjoy the show but I must admit that Kate has gotten more and more annoying with her nagging and complaining about EVERYTHING. Even people who are coming to your house to make it “green” and you aren’t having to pay for it.

  • happinessawaits May 13, 2009, 12:21 pm

    I definitely think the show is exploitative but I must admit, on a rainy Sunday, I can be caught hunkering down for a Jon & Katie TLC marathon. All of the kids are cute and they remind me that I am in NO WAY READY to start my own family.

    Regarding the affair…..I just hope it isn't true nor is the fact they may split up when there are that many little children involved.

    I too must admit to being a trash reality show/celebrity show fan.

    Happiness Awaits

  • Weight and Meditate May 13, 2009, 12:31 pm

    Caitlin, I also love a good trashy gossip magazine…though I hate to admit it! I don’t get the channel this show is on, so have only seen bits and peices of it here and there. However, if he cheated who knows why? I mean, the pressure of people recording your every move, plus all those darn kids, that would put pressure on even the most well-adjusted person. I hope it’s not a publicity stunt and I hope their kids don’t know what’s going on. That’s the saddest part, the kids will probably hear about this through other people and be very upset.

  • Anne Marie May 13, 2009, 12:33 pm

    Seriously, my Weight Watchers leader saw Jon arm in arm with someone who clearly wasn’t Kate. Strangely enough, this was about a month or so ago, before all the affair stuff started getting big.

  • NoMeatAthlete May 13, 2009, 12:43 pm

    Funny how much that cheese looks like eggs! But speaking of eggs, now that you are vegetarian, are you opposed to eating them? I have struggled with this one since I gave up meat about two months ago. It seems like most vegetarians who aren’t vegans do eat eggs, but I don’t really get why. I still haven’t had eggs, but they are in soooo much stuff that avoiding them is one of the hardest parts of my diet! They’re in some fresh pasta (which I love making), almost all cookies, any type mayonnaise-y sauce, etc.

  • Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point May 13, 2009, 12:47 pm

    no meat athlete – i think all vegetarians have to draw a line FOR THEMSELVES with what is “ok” and what is “not” or we would all just be vegans. i am eating eggs. šŸ™‚

  • Quinn May 13, 2009, 12:50 pm

    Oh isn’t this great afternoon pseudo celebrity gossip at its best. I have been following this drama for the past few weeks, and have to say, they might both have strayed. In that limelight, they’ve pushed a lot of people away – it’s really weird how neither of their parents is in the picture at all (think his may have passed, but still).

    They were uber young when they got married, and even younger when they tried fertility treatments. That’s a topic in and of itself, and they do seem like a wholesome family. I think they’ve just rushed into too much. Marriage, in vitro, publicity, possible affairs. I’m not sure they’re the type of people who truly think about the repercussions of their actions.

    But, I don’t know them. I only know what I see, so I can’t really judge. And does it mean I’ll stop watching? No. But, I do hope they figure it all out – for their kids’ sake. And there are a lot of friggin kids.

  • Lori May 13, 2009, 1:20 pm

    I have only seen the show once and that was more than enough for me. I thought she treated her husband terribly. Very disrespectful. I could not get over how she talked “at” him.
    No idea if either of them cheated and I don’t care. I don’t agree with cheating at all, but if Jon did cheat, I could see why after seeing how his wife treated him…

  • Betsy May 13, 2009, 1:22 pm

    I don’t think they’ll break up only because the show pays for everything – it’s their only income!

    they are crazy, IMO.

  • Amy May 13, 2009, 2:13 pm

    Honestly, I love the show. I would hope that they didn't cheat on each other and I choose to think they didn't. Both seem to care about their children too much to put their relationship in jeopardy like that. I don't think the show exploits the kids. Jon and Kate have said before (or maybe it was in their book) that if the kids don't feel like being on camera, they don't have to be. The twins are often not in certain episodes and sometimes you see some of the younger kids less often than others. Really I just think the kids are so cute and I think Jon & Kate have a lot of good parenting rules. I don't know if having that headline on People is the greatest tactic but meh. I try not to judge people too harshly when I don't know all of the facts.

  • Kat22 May 13, 2009, 2:28 pm

    Caitlin,
    I have been reading your blog for months and I want to start my own now that I have just graduated with a BS in bio and am about to start my master in Nutrition. I have no idea where to start. Ive done a little bit the website is http://chasingdreamseatwell.blogspot.com/ your help would be greatly appreciated šŸ™‚
    Kathryn

  • *One Step at a Time* May 13, 2009, 2:31 pm

    Honestly, I think it is all a publicity scam. I don’t think there is any “cheating” going on. It wouldn’t surprise me if Jon DID go out to a bar while Kate was out of town, but I don’t think he is dumb enough to cheat on her when they are on a popular reality TV show and have 8 kids. But that’s just my opinion šŸ™‚

  • Kim May 13, 2009, 2:40 pm

    Jon & Kate…I feel horrible for their kids. I think they need to pull the plug on the show & put their family first.

    Kate is rude & disrspectful to Jon and he doesn't deserve it. Does it give him the right to cheat (if he did)? No. If he is unhappy, he should seek counseling, try to work it out or get divorced.

    Now I saw rumors that Kate & her bodyguard were having an affair. I do feel for them as their lives are so out in the open, but that is the trade off that you make when you sign up for something like this.

    Again, the kids are the ones who are really suffering here. Can you imagine how it is for Mady & Cara at school? Especially after all the tabloid stuff in the stores.

  • K from ksgoodeats May 13, 2009, 2:44 pm

    Oh my gosh! Those do look like eggs – how funny!!

    I love their show but I really don’t think that either of them cheated. I could see why Jon might but ultimately I think it’s people just trying to create some sort of drama.

  • Jennifer May 13, 2009, 2:56 pm

    I was a dedicated watcher until this season when they bought that ridiculous house then I knew the “fame” had gotten to them. I don’t think they look out for their children’s best interest and I would NEVER speak out to a magazine about my marital issues, I would be devastated as their child knowing the family’s dirty laundry was out in the air. I think they brought it all on them selves and I just hope their kids don’t suffer.

    Ok end rant! šŸ™‚

  • Christie May 13, 2009, 3:01 pm

    I would think that they have really messed things up for themselves if they want to continue with the show (Kate going to magazines, being in tabloids, what Jon said at the end of season 4, etc) but it would seem like they *need* to keep the show going for the $$.

    I am sort of on the middle of each of the issues – Kate cheat? Maybe. Jon cheat? Probably. Exploitave? Kinda.

  • aNd! May 13, 2009, 3:03 pm

    Why does Kate have a bodyguard? I don’t know if either one of them cheated nor do I think it is my business; then again…..was their fertilization treatments paid for by health insurance? These medically unnecessary things raise the cost of insurance for all of us. And now they can’t even stay together? WTF?

  • balancemycake May 13, 2009, 3:38 pm

    I love Jon & Kate Plus 8! Great show. I do agree, that it seems Kate is pretty controlling, and Jon often seems frustrated on the show. However, that is no excuse for cheating (I feel very strongly about infidelity). I'm really not sure if he did or didn't, but I truly hope that it isn't all just a publicity stunt…the kids come first!

  • Matt May 13, 2009, 3:42 pm

    Haha those do look like eggs!

  • Nutritious is Delicious May 13, 2009, 3:44 pm

    Those do looks like eggs! haha

    I think it’s ridiculous! Then again, that’s what happens when you get involved in Hollywood….your life gets broadcast to the world! I don’t mind the show but would not rush home to see if or anything!

  • Anonymous May 13, 2009, 4:11 pm

    I think maybe they quietly said it was over months ago (Kate’s doing..?) but were/are trying to keep that out of public knowledge for the sake of the show/endorsements?? I just don’t think either of them would outright cheat, just because they are SUCH public people with children they care for SO much.

  • Susan May 13, 2009, 4:29 pm

    Ha! I totally thought those were eggs, thanks for clearing that up šŸ˜‰

    I loooove Jon and Kate Plus 8, it’s one of my guilty pleasure shows. To be honest, I was kinda bummed when I heard about the whole affair thing. I really did believe that while they didn’t have the greatest marriage, they tried really hard to keep it together. My real question is – with 8 kids, how would they find the TIME to cheat??

  • Gina May 13, 2009, 4:30 pm

    I hate all men who cheat, however I think if Jon didn’t cheat on Kate than NOBODY cheats. IN other words, he cheated!! She is such a B*tch to him, honestly I hope he cheated, he deserves a women to give him some attention and be nice to him. Love the show, but really don’t like Kate.

    What…I didn’t know that Kate might have cheated as well. Oh no! I am so sad. I love the show, but Kate does push Jon around. I definitely don’t think Jon should have cheated on her b/c of that. I just feel bad for the kids!

    I use to really like this show until it became all about plugging their latest book or a movie they’re being paid to mention.

    I would not be surprised if they do divorce. What couple stays together while filming a reality show?

    i really do hope that it’s all tabloid rummor…I think they were a really cute couple initially the last season was a little strange…too much publicity maybe with octomom

    I have watched the show and am mildly curious about the ongoing drama (I read the headlines in the grocery checkout). It seems like Kate is a control freak, but I don’t think that’s an excuse for adultery. And I think it’s time for them to find some way to back out of the contract. Pay penalties or whatever, it is going to be near-impossible to stay married, let alone grow closer together, with all the crazy publicity.

    I think its a big publicity stunt…whether he cheated or was close to cheating…perhaps that is true…but its no coincidence that this coincides with their new book release!!!

  • Lindsay @ Foodrun May 13, 2009, 5:44 pm

    Oooh I love pop trash! I haven’t watched the show in months, but I always thought Kate was terrifyingly controlling. But really with that many kids, it would be a disaster not to be really strict.

    haha jon and kate…I don’t think I’ve ever seen that show but that melty cheese looks awesome!

  • Bec May 13, 2009, 7:46 pm

    I am also a gossip mag fan and a fan of Jon and Kate and I don’t think either are cheating its just one of those rumors and I feel bad about the rumors which they addressed in the season finally this year where they said the rumors are adding more stress to their relationship!

  • emily May 13, 2009, 7:52 pm

    cheating, exploitation, etc. aside, my husband and I laughed hysterically about these comments – everyone thinks Kate is a bitch, we think they have the cutest relationship on earth! We are little worried about what that says about our marriage! šŸ™‚

    I absolutely LOVED the show when it first started–it was so fascinating to see how the family operated. Now, it’s so unrealistic because it seems like each show is devoted to some fantastic vacation in Hawaii, skiing in the Rockies, or at Disney World. What happened to the reality part?
    I wouldn’t be surprised if Jon were cheating–if I had a controlling/unappreciative wife like Kate, I would go insane!

  • HangryPants May 13, 2009, 10:25 pm

    I used to love the show until it turned into a ridiculous advertising frenzy. Also, I think (on camera and with editing) she is mean to him, but cheating (if it’s true) is always a no no.

    I was a fan of this show as well until I started to see Kate’s neurotic Cruella Deville side come out. The way she treats Jon is unacceptable and the fact that its on national tv for the entire country to see makes it worse. When you invite cameras into your home you should be prepared for scrutiny but I’m tuning out of season 5… I think its to the point where they’ve objectified their kids. I think Kate is a bit over the top and seriously Maddy makes me just want to put her in a closet for at least an hour. She’s 8 and has tantrums at the drop of a hat! Ridiculous… if Kate puts the little kids in the corner for time out.. Maddy should be there right behind em!

    Also, if Jon cheated on Kate he needs to be held accountable for his actions and if that means a divorce those are consequences he has to face….same applies if Kate was dipping in the dessert menu too… I heard the rumours about her and the bodyguard… scandalous!
