Just had to Comment

I read this and found it very interesting considering the recent developments on this show. It states how I feel about the entire matter. Years of watching that poor guy get treated like the family dog seem to have had the expected result, and I am amazed that folks are surprised at the out come.

Meanwhile, my prayers go out to those eight little ones...........with added prayers that the parents and TCL wake up and protect them. Oh wait, there is the large amount of cash involved. Hopefully the sponsors will realize that this is no place to showcase their products.....but then, there is that cash again.........


Should Jon & Kate Plus 8 Be Taken Off the Air?
This once-endearing show about raising twins and sextuplets has turned into a spectacle highlighting Kate's inability to handle the daily stress caused by her many hang-ups. Meanwhile, Discovery is essentially condoning her abusive tendencies...

I chose not to watch it last night...have not been a big fan of it anyway. The children will be the ones to suffer in the long run.Being parents to that many children would be difficult - regardless!

I think the show should be taken off the air. I could see this coming and those children need to have a "normal" life. But then again, there is money involved!

I have watched the show for a long time, and, yup, Kate can be so abrasive and embarassing in public that I cringe at times.

But I also know that she is loyal and a Christian. No amount of yelling "HELLOOOOOOO" in Toys R Us or being OCD should be the reason for a man cheating on his family.

That's right, he cheated on his FAMILY, not just Kate!
If he was sick and tired of being yelled at, or smacked, or embarassed, then he should have filed for divorce and got his own home, and set up visitation schedules with the children. He should have done it the way a real man would have, not a 16 year old boy. He did NOT have to be disloyal,he did not have to go out to bars with another woman. Sunbathe with another woman while the children were present. Have babysitters while Kate was out of town so he could meet another woman.

My heart goes out to every member of that family, not just the kids, because divorce is a terrible road to follow, and every one of them will have scars from this. Scars made deeper because the cuts will be on re-runs...

ok, I'm off my rant now,,,

It is so unfortunate that the children must be filmed while all this is going on. It is difficult enough when this happens in your own home, but to broadcast it to the whole world? But as you say, there are $$$ at stake!

Hi Norma, good to see you again *VBS* And, yes, I'm in total agreement with you and much of the world. The show was fun and interesting and cute back at the beginnings. But the network has pushed from 8 episodes up to the current contract for 40. And then those almighty $$$$$. I quit watching quite a while back and I couldn't handle the way she belittle her DH...and not just in public but in front of millions. I think she's the one who needs a big TIME OUT! Great post. Big hugs, Finn

The kids will have the means to live healthy, have college educations, and start their adult life with no financial worries. Thousands of kids with divorced parents will not have that security. The kids are young enough that they won't care on iota where the money comes from only that it's there thanks to mom and dad.
