Picking Jon and Kate out of my teeth

You can barely tune in to your favorite TV, radio or news site without having Jon & Kate rammed down your throat.

I must be a cold bitch, because I'm having a really hard time feeling sorry for either Jon or Kate. Jon can be a clueless, helpless, dumbass at times. And Kate is often a rude, snide, bitch. They invited a reality show into their lives and...WOW...suddenly things aren't going well? Huh. Who didn't see that coming? No good comes from a reality show. Not even American Idol.

And I must be a super cold bitch because I'm feeling the least bad for Kate. (There, I said it. No sympathy for Kate!) Even at the birthday party, Kate was bitching about the length of the party. Too long? Really? Even tho you planned a near-amusement park party? Who-da-thunk-it?!

I've seen Kate berate Jon, hit Jon, bellow loudly in a store for Jon, embarrass Jon and practically saw off Jon's manhood with a dull grapefruit spoon. (And all this after catching pieces of the show just a handful of times in the last several years.) Do I think Jon should have gotten his freak on with a 3rd grade teacher? Nope. But I'm not going to pity Kate either.

Marriage is hard. It takes a lot of work. I think Kate and Jon have failed each other, big time.

But those I do feel sorry for are the children. They didn't invite cameras into their daily lives. They didn't ask for parents who wanted to make a buck on their mere existence. They don't deserve to have daddy steppin' out with another lady, or mommy snuggling up with her bodyguard. Jon and Kate claim that everything they do is for the children, then hey guys, how 'bout turning off the TV cameras for a bit! How about saying NO to the money and fixing your marriage? FOR YOUR CHILDREN.

And because I'm a super cold skeptical bitch, I'm not entirely sure this whole marriage trouble isn't a rouse. I think they might just be enough of a media-ratings-whore-monger-team that they're messing with their viewers' heads. Ratings were slipping, and then ~BAM~ a faux affair sets them back at the top of reality dung pile. Coincidence?! I guess only time will tell. In the meantime, I'm still choking on the both of them.

What do you think? Am I way off base? Is this real?

Haa! Thanks for your comment and I completely agree with you! We should all wear tutus and tiaras!!

A faux affair for the ratings? Egads! You may just be onto something... GACK.

Jaysus, I hate these two. I once tried to watch the show and only lasted 5 minutes. Between her bitchiness, and that pack of screaming kids my blood pressure shot up so high my head nearly exploded.

I'm ready for their 15 minutes to be over and I do think you're onto something with the publicity stunt. Great cynics think alike. ;)

you know...I used to like to watch the show here and there but since this whole craziness started my only thoughts are "shut the cameras off and seek counselling"...geesh!

I've watched it far too frequently over the years, but this season's opener was just too much. I'm not sure if Jon and Kate are faking the drama or if TLC is trying to play up whatever is there, but I agree with those who think it's a clear sign they need to stop filming and concentrate on their family. It's going to be tough enough for those kids if their parents do divorce without having the cameras there to capture every tear.

Yeah, the cameras need to back off. Agreed.

Thank you! I agree one hundred percent with everything you have said here. The parts of that show I have seen are just depressing to me and fill me with the anxiety of what it must be like to have so many children.

I've never seen anything but a commercial or fifty for J&K+8. That's quite enough for me. I don't bother to tune into their show.
I agree with you, Mom that they need to fix their marriage. I've heard all about it from various sources. Ick!

You've pretty much said everything that I've been thinkin' about Jon and Kate. The parodies of their kids getting counseling from Dr. Phil-sounds pretty close to reality in the future!
