It is amazing how everyone is going crazy over the Jon and Kate plus eight publicity bonanza. What do you think? Do you believe the rumors that Kate is having an affair with the bodyguard? Have you seen the body guard? He looks like James Brolin. He is a hot number!
Or are you from the camp that believes that Kate is a shrew and Jon had every right to move on with his life? What do you think of the rumors that Jon is engaged to his 23-year-old girlfriend and that she is the daughter of the plastic surgeon who performed the tummy tuck on Kate? What a convoluted life we lead!
Most people understand that divorce is a nasty process no matter who we are and no matter what we get paid. Many commentators are saying that the children are going through unnecessary emotional trauma and are being scarred for life. Every child who goes through a divorce faces these same feelings and wonders “why isn’t Mommy talking to Daddy” and “is it my fault”. The children are simply experiencing what many children in real life have dealt with and survived.
What do you think will become of the show? Do you think this is the beginning of the end or do you think that so many viewers will identify with the divorce situation that the fan base will soar? Whose side are you on? Jon, who says that his wife did not want anything to do with him for the past two years? Do you think it is true that he has been living over the garage? Is there really a contract that states either party can see who they want as long as they are there and personable for taping?
How about Kate? Is she aware of the affair and how long has she known? Does she get a pass on the rude way she treated Jon because Jon cheated? Is she just tired and run down because she takes care of eight children alone? Looking back on the series do you remember Jon always coming home late when he worked away from home? Remember he was unavailable to take the kids to Hershey PA? Was he with the girlfriend then? Was he flirting with the Doctor’s daughter when his wife was in surgery? How’s that for a rotten husband? Was the Daughter the receptionist? How corny would that be? Besides an ugly disposition, you really cannot knock Kate as she is always there for her children.
Whatever you think, this show is probably here to stay and go on another day. Only time will tell.
