Love 'em or Hate 'em?
Ok sooo unless you've been living under a rock, you've been hearing about the Jon and Kate Gosselin divorce for quite a while now. Personally, I'm getting ridiculously tired of seeing their faces on every news and gossip channel. But despite my annoyance with the TV coverage, I must admit, I've always loved the family - even Kate, even Jon.
There are a lot of people out there with very strong opinions about the topic but I almost feel like the Gosselins are getting hit way too hard. Recently, I think Jon has been being, well, a douche bag. But I kind of feel guilty for Kate. She may be an overbearing, control freak, but I don't think she's a terrible mother. After reading her book Multiple Blessings I can see where she's coming from. How can you have 8 young children and not be a control freak. I think I would be too. And without the show, let's face it, there's no way they could be providing their kids with a healthy lifestyle.
Regardless, I do think it's time to end the show. They've made plenty of money to give the kids everything they want. At this point, it's not necessary - they aren't even "Jon & Kate" anymore.
And does anyone remember Aunt Jodi? Who used to babysit the kids all the time - on the show! Well now her and her husband (Kate's brother) are attacking Kate saying that the show is detrimental to the kids. Whether it is or it isn't, who are they to judge when THEY WERE ON THE SHOW?!
Anyways... what are your opinions??
