Jon & Kate Enrolls Kids In Boarding School

Just_Jared_Celebrity_Babies_87877_jon_kate_plus_8_sextuplets_birthday_celebrationAnyone else wonder what can come next for reality stars Jon and Kate Gosselin?  No matter where you look those two keep making headlines.  Or maybe I should say, we are making them headlines.  The tabloids and the paparazzi are having a field day and making mucho bucks off these two and their exploits, now it seems regular everyday Pennsylvania newspapers are jumping on the bandwagon.  I first saw this on TMZ and laughed when I read the article, then I had to follow through and  click on link to the Pittsburgh Tribune Review to get the full effect.  To save you the time of finding the article, here it is in it’s entirety:

WERNERSVILLE — After their father’s rumored infidelity sent the show’s ratings soaring, the youngsters who helped make “Jon & Kate Plus 8” a success are being de-emphasized. The children will be sent away to boarding school to allow The Learning Channel show to explore more mature themes. The program’s producers also announced today that the reality program will be rechristened “Jon & Kate Unleashed.”  “The kids will still make occasional guest appearances, primarily around the holidays,” executive producer Benny Temberton said at a news conference outside Jon and Kate Gosselin’s home. “But we’re definitely retooling the show into something sleek, something sexy — and perhaps even a little sinister.” 

Since its inception, the show has centered on the logistical challenges the Gosselins face in raising their now 8-year-old twin girls and 5-year-old sextuplets.  The nearly 10 million viewers who watched the show’s fifth-season premiere Monday were more than double the program’s previous largest audience. The boost has been attributed to numerous tabloid reports that Jon has been unfaithful to Kate.   Temberton would not confirm or deny those stories but called them a “fantastic opportunity” to break free from a format that was growing stale.  “What we’ve been dealing with since the show debuted is this: Jon and Kate have eight kids. That sure makes for a lot of dirty clothes piling up in the laundry room,” Temberton said. “By now, the audience gets that.”  Once the children are dispatched to a far-off locale — Temberton mentioned Switzerland as a possibility — the show will revolve around the Gosselins’ troubled marriage.

“To fill the vacuum left by the children, we’ll have a mysterious stranger with some skeletons in his closet move next door to the Gosselins,” Temberton said. “Will Kate be tempted to become romantically involved with him if she and Jon separate? You’ll have to tune in to find out.”  Temberton dismissed the idea that such a manipulation of events might taint the program’s reputation as reality based.  “Oh, come on. These people put makeup on every morning before breakfast so they can be videotaped eating their Shredded Wheat,” he said. “You call that reality?”  He also scoffed at the notion the Gosselins would be lonely without their children.  “They’ll still have family around,” he said. “The production crew isn’t going anywhere.”

Could this possible be true?  I somehow find this a little hard to believe, but stranger things have happened.  If I had read this maybe in the Star or National Enquirer I would instantly have thought of it as a lie, but lately both of those tab mags have been right on target.  The question remains how does a supposed mainstream newspaper get a scoop like this and the Enquirer not? Is there a “real” Benny Temberton employed by TLC as an executive producer, or has someone been had?  Let’s see how fast this story makes the national headlines..
