    Jon's gotten rather large, especially in the face. It was quite depressing watching them last night. Sucks for their kids, though. Kate is still a *****.

    An innocent show with good intentions (I actually still think there's no publicity stunt) turns. That's the price of fame.

      But anyways, it's a reality TV show that follows a family with a set of:

      fraternal twin girls and a set of sextuplets.


      I had no idea what this show was about, but my sister wanted seasons 1 and 2, so I bought her them for her present.

      I watched the dvds with her, and I'm not going to lie it's a pretty cool show.

      It basically follows the Goesselin family around all day every day. The cameramen and microphone guy are basically apart of the family, and they follow the 8 kids and the parents during their daily tasks.

      It's probably more of a girl show, but I think it's pretty cool... One of the little girls reminds me of my little cousin.

        Thats who I feel sorry for. Those kids are going to be stuck with their parents VERY PUBLIC issues for the rest of their lives. They will never be able to avoid it.

          Yeah man, I agree. It really isn't a "guy" show... but when you watch it, it gets addicting.

          I love kids and how they interact with society at such a young age... and watching 8 healthy children grow over the years is neat.

          Reality TV isn't my thing. I can't stand Survivor or any crap like that, but this.... although the family is making GOOD money off the show, this is real.

          I feel bad for the children too.

          The show has pros/cons.

          Pros: A good source of money for the parents to help raise their 8 kids. Enough said.

          Cons: Paparazzi, tabloids, etc.

          I HOPE that the Jon and Kate can overcome this. I watch this show as much as I can, and it feels like I know the kids myself. Whatever happens, I hope it ends in a healthy result for the whole family.

            We have our opinion on what happened.....our theory goes something like this:

            Mom forgot what the purpose of the show was......to chronicle the lives of their "gang" and pay the bills. She appears to have taken on a whole different life, that of a celebrity. And she was rude to her husband on the show, and basically alienated him from the process....a process most of us would not want to be part of. Imagine having all those kids, with cameras around you constantly, losing your relationships at work and with your partner?

            I used to be in the other room when my wife watched the show.....I noticed that Kate did the majority of the talking, even though I wasn't paying attention, and could hardly hear the show. It makes sense to me now, not that talking more is a crime, but it sort of fits what I was hearing from one room away.

            Anyway....if this is all true, and we are not getting set up for more money-making TV, I would say that the premise for the show has taken a disastrous turn, and in the end, those famous children may have grown up in the most foolish of situations....on tv, and with parents who are splitting......and it's all documented for them to see someday.

            Anyway, based on the latest "gossip", it seems that Kate has changed the most, and not for the better - for her family.

            (Note: I am not saying that Jon is a saint, but he appears to have gotten the short end of the stick...)



            THEN AGAIN......MAYBE IT'S ALL PART OF THE SCRIPT.....
            Good viewpoint on the situation. I agree with just about everything you've said.

            This past memorial day weekend, when I wasn't working I was sitting inside during the rainy weekend watching the J&K+8 marathon.

            You could tell from the beginning to the present how MUCH Kate has changed. She seems to be enjoying the limelight a little too much. With that, her appearance is changing. She doesn't look like a "mom" really anymore. More of a "star" with the change of wardrobe, to the fake tan, to the hairstyle.

            Jon, I have no idea if he cheated. He said that he didn't "cheat" on Kate, but there are pictures of him with some college girls, and a picture of him in his car, while the teacher who people are saying he cheated with, was driving.

            I HOPE to god that he didn't cheat, because that will absolutely destroy the relationship with the family.

            I LOVE everyone of those kids, and I'm a 20 year old college student. But I feel for those kids, and I enjoy watching them grow up and interact.

            Jon clearly doesn't want to continue with the show, yet Kate does. With that disagreement, and the allegations of the cheating... the family has a huge hump to get over.

            I hope they can do it....
