Wow, if you watch Jon and Kate plus 8, last night’s premiere was enough to make you cry. It is so depressing how that family has turned out. I mean, they still have adorable, smart little kids, but Jon and Kate are a mess! It seemed to me that Jon doesn’t want to be strapped down anymore and he wants out of the marriage and the show. I think Kate would work on things, but she wants to keep the show going. I honestly think they need to get out now. It was pitiful that there were paparazzi in the woods during their kids’ birthday party! No five year-old should have to deal with that kind of thing if it can be helped.
Kate needs to wise up and end the show now. It’s not “for the kids” as she claims it is, it’s about the money. They would be able to stop now, with all the money they have accumulated, and she and Jon could lead above-average lives, financially speaking. They have made about $75K per episode with 20 episodes per season, and are in the fifth season now. Let’s do the math, shall we? Try $7.5 million dollars, people, of course that’s before taxes, but even after the government rapes their profits, they’ve got at least four million just from the show, not even the speaking engagements, book proceeds and freebies. It has turned into a business. Poor kids. I don’t doubt that they both love their kids and want the best for them, but I do think that dollar signs can cloud judgment. I’m sure it is very hard to be in the spotlight, like Kate said. So remove yourself from it!
I bet this will be the last season.
On a TTC note, today is 4 dpo and there is nothing to report besides Metformin-induced gas, but that is my new normal. SO lovely. AND I am ready for DH to be home! It is uber-boring without him here!
