Jon & Kate Gosselin Release Statements

And Living Apart

And Living Apart

According to Kate Gosselin’s divorce papers her marriage to Jon is “irretrievably broken.”  She further states that she and Jon have been living apart for 2 years.  I personally find this hard to believe since neither of them has been able to take a poop without the media reporting on it.  There is no way possible that these two have been living apart for two years.   Maybe they haven’t had martial relations in two years, but living apart, no way!

Two different statements have been released to the media today.  The one from Kate’s camp has asserted that “Jon’s activities” over this past weekend had left her “no choice” but to file legal proceedings in order to protect herself and her children.”  While Jon’s camp reported that he was “hurt” by Kate’s statement about the divorce.  In Jon’s own words, “I have always done everything I can to protect our family. This weekend, I was home with the kids for four days, just being a dad. No nannies, just the kids and me.”

Oh what a tangled web we weave…. Unless the two had words behind closed doors, I wonder if the comment Jon made to the press about not seeing Deanna Hummel as much “due to what went down” had anything to do with it.  Nothing quite like rubbing someones face in infidelity. 

I do believe that Kate was in love with her life more than in love with Jon.  I’ve said before that I only started following these two because of all of the heated comments and debates that were posted about them.  I couldn’t figure out why people of all sexes and ages responded so strongly to the shenanigans of these two reality stars.  I know… “we watch to see the kids.”  Maybe, for awhile.  But I think that people love to get intertwined in others lives, whether it’s to leave their own for awhile or because,  just simply,  it’s interesting and sometimes fun.

I think we can all agree that divorce is not fun for anyone, and I would imagine that Kate is being very sincere when she expresses the fact of “becoming a statistic” and “failing” at marriage is devastating.  I do believe Kate thought that they would work things out.  In her mind, Kate has always been Kate, she doesn’t see herself “changed” by doing the show.  I believe in her mind, this is what she has always wanted and desired…the fame…the fortune…the attention.  One of her past comments revealed a lot about her.  She commented not too long ago that she was just like any other Mom.  She was telling the paparazzi to go film one of those moms…they were just like her.  She fails to see the difference in “wanting to become famous” and ” becoming famous.” The poor little ministers daughter from central Pennsylvania who dreamed of becoming rich and famous got her wish, but at one unexpected cost…her marriage. 

I’m also pretty sure that she figured Jon would always stay along for the ride.  I don’t really agree with Margie’s post about Jon being a dog, but she does raise some valid points.  Jon is the big kid, he wants what he wants when he wants it.  He loves the stress of not working, but doesn’t like the idea of not being defined by a career.  He wants to play with the big boys, but in his chase for being “cool” has morphed back into a teenage boy.  There has always been talk on whether Jon or Kate read the blogs about themselves.  I do believe that Jon finally did, and didn’t like what he read.  How would you like being called “The Man with No Balls?”  Along with raging against the paparazzi, he raged at Kate as well.  As long as Jon stayed under the radar and Kate could continue her life all was good.  I firmly believe that if the P people hadn’t caught on,  Jon and Kate would still be together, filming and making money off of all of us slobs who just can’t turn away. 

I don’t know what Jon’s plan is now.  With the hint he dropped on last night’s show about getting a job or finding a job or “Hey someone, Offer Me a Job,” it sounds like he wants to become a New York City playboy.  Hey Jon, there is a big difference between central Pennsylvania and NYC.  It’s like jumping from the guppies to the sharks.  You might have been a big fish were you are now, but in NYC you will be eaten alive. 

And Kate, don’t worry, as long as there are people who love to gossip and you give then something to gossip about, the show will go on.  Your fame and fortune will be secure as long as you stay as you are.  People love to hate you…Just be sure to treat the children well (and the dogs please), stick to your guns about who you are and the public will follow.  After all last night’s show had over 10.6 million viewers, the highest rated TLC show so far.

John & Kate Shatter TLC Record

jon-kate_lEntertainment Weekly has released the following :

The heavily promoted fifth-season premiere of Jon & Kate Plus 8 posted record ratings for TLC on Memorial Day. The hour-long episode — in which tabloid cover queen Kate Gosselin admitted, “I have a lot of anger…this is not what I envisioned for us” — attracted a whopping 9.8 million viewers, which more than doubled the audience that tuned into the show’s season 4 finale in March (4.6 million). Early estimates also reveal that the premiere, which lured unprecedented numbers of women aged 18-34 and women 18-49, was TLC’s (and Jon & Kate’s) most-watched episode ever. It also trounced the broadcast networks, which aired mostly repeats because of the holiday (an original episode of The Bachelorette on ABC lured 6 million). Final ratings are due Wednesday

Most of us have guessed that this would be the case, even to the point that many of the Kate Haters out there refused to watch the Season 5 Premier.  Personally, I don’t see that it made much of an impact or statement to TLC at all.  I have viewed many websites where the public blogs in a question such as  “I refused to watch the show last night, but can someone please tell me what happened?” So it seems that even though the public is crying out child exploitation, the public still wants to know…

We would love to hear your thoughts.  Click on “comments” below and share you opinion.
