Just saw that Jon and Kate are filing for divorce.
They disgust me.
How Kate can says she's doing this all for her kids is beyond me. Do people not realize that the BEST thing you can give your kids is a happy marriage?
I was hoping against hope that they'd go to counseling and get it together, but it seems like the show has driven a wedge between them.
I was thinking (as I was putting fertilizer on my lawn this AM) about how Kate was so pro-organic when the show first came out, and I was thinking about how people spend extra money to go organic, which is fine. But I wish people would realize that having a happy home is the THE most important thing.
Now little Aidan will be a drug dealer, and there's probably a likely chance the courts decide to split the kids up... I mean, really -- can 8 kids be raised by one person? Is it even safe?
Does anyone see a "Parent trap" sequel?
Nope, neither do I?
In Jon's defense I think that Kate is mean and harsh, and I do see a bit of myself in her and actually I think I've learned to be a better wife watching her pick him apart.
But, currently I hate both of them.
and now as I read all of this on the Internet about how their kids will be happier now that they're split (and possibly that's true because if they stayed in the zone of hating each other that isn't helpful), I think we need to focus that they are NOT in this for their kids. They're in it for themselves. period.
And TLC is in it for THEMselves, and I am going to write them a little note and say so.
