Gosselins: take your family drama out of the spotlight and work things out. It’s not right for your kids to let this all play out on national television. Thank you.
It was announced today that Kate will continue “Jon and Kate Plus 8” under a new title; “Kate Plus 8,” and talk about raising 8 kids as a single mother during the show. Interestingly enough, Jon Gosselin also released apology today for the way he’s treated Kate and even asking to halt the divorce. Coincidence? I think not.
I’d love to live in happy land where everything is innocent and good, but unfortunately I do not. No one is naive enough to think that Jon Gosselin just happened to ask for forgiveness the day it was announced that he doesn’t have a job anymore. I mean come on Jon, at least wait a week or two. For being worthless, Jon Gosselin earns the TCJ Honorary Plaque of Fail and a place in the Hall of Fame. Congrats Jon!
Having said that, Kate’s not off the hook either. As a single mother, she needs to focus on raising her 8 children, not raising the ratings of her TV show. Don’t get me wrong, I’m definitely on her side (though she’s probably a bit of a control freak), I just can’t see how she’s going to have enough time to raise the kids and have a TV show about their lives, among other business ventures.
Additionally, the kids deserve some privacy. They aren’t old enough to say, “I’m not doing this show,” so they’re forced to go along with if that’s what mommy wants. I can’t imagine the difficulties of going through a regular divorce, and having that whole process play out in front of millions of viewers will make that about one million times worse for the kids. So Kate, put your (well deserved) desire to get back at Jon aside and do what’s right for the kids. I’m not going to give you a Fail Plaque yet, but you’re borderline.
