Jon & Kate Plus the Mistress

jon-gosselin-deanna-hummelTo use an Internet phrase:  When Did Jon & Kate jump the shark?  A lot of people would say once the outside advertising took over the show.  For me, the episode where Jon had to do some work on his computer, then turned to the camera and showed TV land  the Allstate Insurance Home Page (I think it was Allstate), was the most defining moment.  In the past we saw ad placements all throughout the series, but none as blatant obvious as this one. 

The show has been surrounded in controversy since day one.  Child Exploitation has been the biggest issue, then of course going public with the divorce announcement.  But I think the worst is yet to come. 

It’s being reported in the New York Daily News that Deanna Hummel, the 23-year old school teacher is expected to appear on Jon & Kate Plus 8 when filming resumes.  OMG, filming with your alleged mistress…..Deanna’s presence isn’t supposed to be a major, but it will be included since she is one of Jon’s friends and she’s part of Jon’s life. 

If this is true, Jon & Kate has moved from the reality family show to the daytime soap opera category.  Jump the shark hell, the show has jumped the whale. 

I didn’t have a problem with the filming of last Monday’s episode.  Jon & Kate have become a world wide name and a business enterprise all in itself.  As Kate has always said, “Their show is their life, and the life is their show.”  So if the show is going to continue, the divorce issue has to be addressed.  But to make the decision to film alleged infidelities has taken things to an entirely different level. 

Maybe it’s time to redo the name of the show and it’s mission statement.  It used to be that Jon & Kate wanted “memories” for their children, and an opportunity to provide for them.  I can’t argue with that, it was their choice to do so.  Without the show, I think the state of Pennsylvania would have been supporting the Gosselin eight  for years to come.  Kate would have had to return to nursing full time since Jon doesn’t seem to have any career skills what so ever.  If the tensions we picked up on every week were so blantent, could you imagine how it would have been with the family being broke? 

Instead of Jon & Kate Plus 8, the show about a family raising twins and septuplets, the show has to be renamed.

  1. TLC has spoken — there will be NO filming of any “friends” of Jon in any upcoming episodes (if indeed there are any). Looks like Kate has spoken. Either that, or TLC is afraid of being involved in any future accusations of exploitation of the kids. When the president of the United States is joking about them in public, they’ve truly become a joke.

    If Kate really wants to know what went wrong with her marriage, she should take a look at how she treats the dogs. Family picnic? Put the dogs in “their cage out back.” Now, they’re not only pinned up inside, but they can’t have the yard either. The dogs, like Jon, are brought out when it’s convenient for Kate or necessary for the cameras. No wonder he accused her that time of treating him like a dog…

    One other rumor I’ve heard is that TLC is doing it’s damnest to get out of their contract. Wonder who’s objecting???

    • Tricky, When the president of the United States is joking about them in public, they’ve truly become a joke. I didn’t hear about his… But all I can say is “It takes a joke to know a joke….”

  2. Why would tlc want out of a moneymaker contract? It’s not like they’ve never dealt with difficult ‘celebrity’ types before. That’s their business. Help exploit people’s lives, make big bucks doing it. The more messed up the people get, the more ‘we’ all want to see it, the more money for the network.

    And I have to say, Kate’s a witch and I think she drug Jon into all this kid producing with great trepidation. Why on earth are people in their early 20’s in such a rush to see fertility specialists? I don’t think his heart was in this mass production from the get go…but he’s too nice a guy to say no.

    I think he loves his kids…but I also think these two were far too young to be getting into any of this without making sure their marriage would withstand twins AND the seven year itch.

    It was a sure thing this would break up.

  3. Jon just wants to be done with his responsibilities and live the single life. He was too much of a dork to ever have a fun bacehlor life without the fame and money. Another aspiring dead-beat dad!

  4. I hate to hear women bash a strong woman. Kate hasn’t raised 8 kids, she’s raised 9. I’m raising four kids and I’ll say that it takes a strong backbone to bring up a big family. If Jon felt like he was bullied by Kate, he could have stood up for himself within the marriage rather than seeking independence at the expense of his family. Jon is obviously trying to recapture his youth. It was crass to him talk about being “excited” about the new chapter in his life. I’m not sure who I think less of – Jon or the mistress.

  5. I have to agree with therese… Amen.. YOU HIT IT ON THE HEAD… and can you imagine all of the kids being the same age? OMG! Jon is a sorry piece of poop! And he is going thru some kind of early midlife crisis. He dresses like a thug and now even has big diamond ear rings.. I wonder if they are real… Im sure the girls will stop being interested in him once he has to pay back all of the money he get during the divorce back to Kate for Child Support. and once the show is over, they wont go down on his child support amount… It going to be hard for him to pay that much working at McDonalds flipping burgers….

    • You assume the courts will award all the money, possessions, etc. to Kate and kick Jon out on his ear. Not so fast — Jon was a part of the show since episode one and likely entitled to half. If they do award everything to Kate, she may find herself having to pay spousal support to Jon. I think they’ll probably work it out to shared custody, etc. for the sake of the kids… at least I hope they do…

  7. Sure kate was abrasive at times with Jon however she was loving towards him also. Jon chose not to work and sit at home for 2 years while Kate worked. Jon said he did not communicate well and Kate did try to talk to him. Jon became aware of the blogs about his manhood, got mad and wanted out. Kate always needed a stronger man. Jon is dull with no personality. Jon said he is only 32 and is excitred about his new life. run Jon run.
