    I myself don’t watch the show, wishing them the best and hope they can continue to remain friends. This seems like a terrible burden on the mother imo, while the dad goes off riding in the sunset. I couldn’t imagine having eight kids full time, you would have no time to yourself.

    Maybe the court will recommend counseling and in time J&K will be able to reconnect and work things out.

    at least the kids get a real Summer vacation…………. like most employees !!!!

    They should’ve pulled the plug along time ago…
    for anyone interested in the laugh of the day, go to to see 2 reels of Kate belittiling jon…and the kids..It’s not funny, it’s just more reason to hate her and give jon the thumbs up for finally leaving her.
    Btw, it’s my opinion that jon hates her so much because he asked to be done with the show long ago. She needs money and fame.

    I don’t watch the show but naturally you can’t turn around without knowing who Jon & Kate are and their situation. I have to say I am disappointed that their lives came to this point, and I really think from everything I have read, that Jon probably didn’t even try to save the marriage. He got on tv, made a sh*tload of money, and now wants to be free to enjoy the single life. And Kate should have been more of a partner instead of a tyrant. So sad. Just further proof what reality tv does to couples.

    Kate looks stoned… or is it the dollar signs in her eyes?

    teri Says:

    I’m not sure why people hate on Kate since it’s Jon who cheated. Did I miss something? Nobody knows what went on in the home when cameras weren’t there, just the anger from him cheating while your home with the kids would upset anyone.

    Well just proves we all stop for a car wreck.. These numbers will not last. Thus the show being haulted..

    Sad for the kids more then anything.. Just so sad.. I remember on this episode one of the girls said to Jon.. “Daddy I don’t want you to go away again”.

    Yeah made me want to cry.. They should have at least tried something. But from what I could see Jon is so over Kate.. No feeling there at all. She said he had a lot of anger towards her. Why?. I’m sure there is a lot we don’t know. But yeah Jon is so done…and has already moved on right or wrong..

    I love their show! I hope they will seek counseling for the sake of their kids. That’s a great pix of them!!!

    The whole this is very sad.. Jon was so smug on the show he could really care less about anything except having a good time since he’s “only 32″ and finally found himself…Jon maybe now you can find a job.

    This is just so sad. Those poor kids.

    They should be free to be happy. The kids will be okay and will have a nanny to take care of them. They can all sign their own book deals and make appearances like the Brady’s.

    Those who say Jon left her.. you are silly. Kate filed for divorce. A woman does not marry a man to have another child who she has to make decision for. It seems that Jon just sat back and did not assert himself and it just became the norm while she began to resent it but didn’t know how to let go after a while. She even was the one who had to file for divorce while he was seen out with his female “friends”

    When a woman gives birth her hormones change and her body gets even more tired and she does get a bit more aggressive, if she and her partner do not work together to give her peace and rest… Boom.

    I wish I could be as “perfect” as the rest of you. They needed a Tyrant in the show to keep it interesting and Kate’s hormones gave it to them. Peace to them all.
