TLC Jurl

I must confess that I watched the season premier of Jon and Kate Plus 8. I'm not proud of it, but I was drawn to the carnage like a moth to a flame. I have to say, it was pretty sad. If those two can salvage their marriage it'll take more than a miracle, it will take Jesus as their marriage counselor.

I don't really have a strong opinion about who did wrong or what they should do now. I mean, sure, Kate is a bossy bitch, but Jon is a lolly-gagging goof. They're a perfect fit. And are they exploiting their kids for money and is Kate putting the show before her marriage? Maybe. But those kids got to eat. I realize there are lots of families with too many kids that don't have the same money making opportunity, but I assure you they would take it if offered. We all want to think we'd pass on the money, the fame, and the amazing opportunities, for the sake of our family, but would we really? Or would we convince ourselves that we were enduring fame for the sake of our family. Who knows?

What I do have a strong opinion about is this: Why the frac were those five year old crumb snatchers sitting at the dinner table in high chairs? Even little Tubbs has been out of a high chair since he was 18 months (and he's not the smart one)! WTF.

Get those kids out of high chairs and then get your marriage together before you ruin the lives of six kids. Jeez.

I personally think it's Kate that's to blame. All the perks, freebies, adn money that come thru the show are obviously more important to her than keeping the family together. I'm not saying that Jon is perfect, but he seems to be tired of showbiz. I don't think she really thinks about the kids as much as she says she does. If she did, she would have run with everything she already made and live a somewhat normal live!

I am really sad that you deleted the post before this one. It was so funny and I was telling people to get on and read it. Put it back up PLEASE!!!! Tell your husband it is extremely funny and true and OK!

You guessed it. Husband did not like the post. For once I had to put my marriage before the blog. It wasn't easy to hit delete, but now it's gone forever. thanks for the compliment though.

I think we need to give Jon huge credit for not cutting off Kate's nagging, bitching, moaning, mean head and burying it in the ground behind the house.

AARRRGGGHHH. I can't believe you deleted the sex post! That was SO FREAKING funny and SO true! I wish I would have copied and pasted it. Tammy (from above) told me about it, then I read it and laughed my ass off. I went back to read it again and it was gone. Can't you just secretly email it to those of us who loved it? We won't tell your husband, promise.

Oh, and regarding John and Kate - its all just a huge disaster at this point. I don't see how any marriage could survive all those kids and all that media hype (and all the bitching and nagging from Kate). Except for my marriage of course, it could survive anything.
