    This is an extremely tense situation for the children. Jon and kate went through the party just like it was a cakewalk but you could tell jon and kate were not talking/avoiding each other. Jon and Kate plus eight was a great thing at the beginning but then it just got out of controll. Maybe kate realizes how her controlling ways and the show both as affected their lives

    Познавательно написано, но как говорится, для общей картины нужно как минимум три источника 🙂

    She does have a contract with a clothing store. She is designing (them herself i think) for Wal-Mart. So all her kids are going to be wearing clothes from wal-mart. She’ll be raking in the big bucks!

    I think Kate is wonderful. She might be a bit OCD, but you would not SURVIVE without being ultra organized. And Jon is his own man, she didn’t “nag” him into an affair. he is still accountable to the Christian beliefs he touts.
    TLC SHOULD continue the show. The kids work 2 hours a day, 2 days a week. If you want more ideas on why this isn’t a bad idea, look up the Kansas sextuplets in Rago KS and see how six kids are sharing a bedroom and the parents sleep on two couches in the living room! It’s EXPENSIVE and not everyone can do it. We’d all do this if we had the chance. Be honest.
    Go Kate! You’re a great mom.

    I think this is a really great family who just got caught up in all the Hollywood hoopla. From what I got out of the premiere Jon would like to be out of the spot light, but Kate does enjoy it. I think it is kind of hard for them to turn back now. One of the episodes showed a behind the scenes look and those kids think it is normal to have camera people around you 24/7. I don’t judge, I just wish them lots of luck.

    THE SWEATERS THE GIRLS ARE WEARING ARE FROM GYMBOREE THEY ARE ONLINE AT GYMBOREE.COM I DON’T KNOW WHERE THE DRESSES ARE FROM . I FEEL SORRY FOR THE KIDS. WHEN ONE OF THE SEXTUPLET GIRLS SAID DON’T LEAVE AGAIN DADDY TO JOHN I WANTED TO CRY !! I WISH THEY COULD MAKE IT WORK FOR THE SAKE OF THE KIDS.

  7. Laura says

    The best thing the family can do, is shut off the cameras!! Its ruinning their marriage and its heartbreaking!
    I think Kate is a wonderful mother! Could you imagen the stress of 8 kids..wow!! And all the rumers about Jon! i realllly hope they are just rumers!! This family needs to stick together for america! jeje
    LOVEEEEEEE the show but its best they cancel it bc its gonna break this family apart!!

    I do not see how Jon has put up with all of Kate’s put downs in all these episodes. He can’t even breathe right for her or talk right , in her opinion. She puts herself on a pedistal. I would like to cut that hair off that is in her eyes all the time so she could see better. Maybe that is her problem. Like Jon very much as he is so down to earth. They should be left alone to work out their problems even if that means discontinuing the show.

  9. Carol says

    Good Mom awfull wife. Don’t blame Jon for rebelling how can anyone take all those put downs on National TV for 4 years and not. He took it longer than I would. Having 8 kids under 9 is hard and I can understand them snapping at each other when they are trying to manage the brood but she put Joh down repeditly even when they are just sitting doing the interview at the end of the show with no children around. She is a shrew when it comes to the way she treats Jon. He has finally had enough. I do hope they can work things out but unless Kate makes some changes in her personality it will not work. And after watching the show last night I am not so sure they want it to work.

    Saw the season premiere with the 5th birthday party. Pretty sad for the kids, it is very obvious there is major strain between the parents. I don’t know if Jon has moved out but Kate had to make all the preparations for the party w/o him participating.

    He eventually joined them, with the party in progress, drove up in his nice little sports car by himself. Seemed very disconnected & generally both of them appeared either sad or angry at times. Kate definitely had a hard time concealing her anger & they would pass each other without speaking most of the time and avoiding eye contact.

    While she is a trial as a wife and a nag, I don’t think he’s blameless for the marital woes. Not fair to put the blame on her alone. He looks like he’s trying to live like a college frat boy ie the fancy sporty car, the going to bars at 2 am trying to score etc.

    He made comments about being tired of staying at home with the kids all the time etc. Seems like he’s jealous of her being on a book tour.

    They should try to pull it together for those kids & put them first. Get a real job, real life and privacy back. It’s a shame.

  11. TIFFANY DANIELS says

    I HAVE BEEN A FAITHFUL WATCHER OF THE SHOW SINCE THE BEGINNING, I JUST PRAY THAT THEY WORK THROUGH THEIR PROBLEMS THAT EVERY MARRIED COUPLE GO THROUGH. EVENTHOUGH IT HURT TO EVEN THINK ABOUT BUT TO NOT KNOW IF IT IS TRUE HAS TO BE PAINFUL JUST PRAY THAT YOU BOTH GO OVER YOUR MARRIAGE VOWS AND REMEMBER FOR BETTER OR WORST. NOT SAYING THAT SHE SHOULD JUST OVERLOOK THE SITUATION I JUST HOPE FOR THE KIDS SAKE THAT THEY BE ABLE TO GET THROUGH THIS, AND IF IT TAKES YOU GUYS GETTING OUT OF THE SPOTLIGHT FOR AWHILE LET IT BE. DON’T DO ANYTHING OR MAKE ANY BIG DECISIONS WITHOUT TALKING IT OVER WITH OUR HEAVENLY FATHER WHO PUT YOU TWO TOGETHER. I HAVE ALWAYS SAID THAT GOD COULDN’T HAVE GIVEN 8 KIDS TO ANY OTHET MOTHER AND FATHER YOU GUYS ARE GREAT NO MATTER WHAT THE MAGAZINES SAY I WHO HAVE AN 8,7,AND 4 YEAR HAVE LEARN MANY THINGS FROM YOUE SHOW LAST WORDS JUST KEEP LOVING YOUR KIDS THE WAY YOU DO AND IF YOU LEAVE OR STAY I’LL CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR YOUR FAMILY.

    I think those dresses are from Wal-Mart. Kate helped design a new line of kids clothing.

    I wish she would GO WAY!! Can’t stand her!

  13. marissa says

    1.Cute clothes? Of course they’re cute. The clothes were given to them FOR FREE by Gymboree and Gap
    2. They put themselves on TV, they therefore face criticism, good or bad. Dont play the “dont judge unless you…” card
    3. They make $75,000 an episode, $25,000 per engagement, $20 per signed photo, + free trips, free house. No one needs to feel sorry for them

  14. Isabel says

    You know what they say about growing up in a trailer park, don’t you?

    You can take the girl out of the trailer (trash), but you can never take the trailer (trash) out of the girl.

    Poor thing. She’ll lose EVERYTHING — soon — and end up right back where she started. In a trailer park. She’ll be begging for anyone, even the family members she’s disowned, to take care of her. She will finally be at the bottom, just like the algae that lives at the bottom of a filthy pond.

    She is revolting. Her children should be taken away from her immediately and sent to live with Aunt Jodi and Uncle Kevin until Jon can get on his feet and provide them with a solid, loving home.

    She is a fraud. And trash, she most certainly is!

  15. mia says

    I think they should cancel this show so that they can they their lives together and in private they can do whatever they want.. Yes, I agree with number 13 and 22. I am sick of this show and of her treating her husband like her 9th child.

  16. bethy says

    Good points Amyyeager2! At the beginning of the show, when it first started, she actually paid attention to the kids, interacted with them. She and Jon got along sometimes. As the show has progressed, she gripes more and more, her “Christian values” have flown out the window, and it’s all about what she can get and promoting the show, etc etc. For someone who has it made (doesn’t have to work b/c of exploiting her kids), she seems awfully ungrateful! It’ll be interesting to see what happens when her 10 minutes of fame die out!

  17. Trisha says

    Wow…well said amyyeager2! I have to agree with you. I used to love watching this family when I was on vacation…the only time I get to watch cable TV as I don’t subscribe. However, my husband HATES how Kate treats Jon and refuses to watch it. Having said that, I’ve been so disappointed hearing the news of what’s been going on with her and Jon. I will say just raising two children is incredibly difficult on my husband and I…I can only imagine how difficult it must be with eight. I’m not sure I could have TV cameras following my every move, however, the money sure would be nice and I’m sure that’s the biggest reason they are still doing it.

  18. Amyyeager2 says

    They get the kids clothes free from Gymboree… just like they get juice free from JuicyJuice and VMotions free from VTech. All shameless plugs on the show. I used to adore this show (even Kates constant bickering didnt bother me because, like others said, its something that occurs in this house too) Now I hate it because she has become a money grubbing piece of crap IMO. With all her fake tanning, nails perfect all the time, bleaching their teeth, hair transplants, million dollar house….. what is there for me to relate to anymore??? The original premise of the show was a family struggling to get by… not celebrities running around the country and leaving their kids behind. I love how she told people “People keep saying for us to quit the show and work on our marriage but how would we support our kids?” Hmmm first of all you make 50-75,000 per episode… what have you been doing with that money all this time? Second of all, you have two books that are selling like hotcakes… ka-ching. Third, youre house was paid for by TLC so you have no mortgage like most families. And third and finally, youre kids will all be in school in Sept. Go back to work as a nurse! Im sick to death of these morons.

  19. rose says

    Can you imagine being inited to their b’day party??? You’d have to spend a fortune since you’d be buying for 6!

  20. ? says

    First of all, who cares if she dresses the kids alike. A lot of twins, triplets etc dress the same at that age. Bethy, don’t condone Jon’s cheating if he in fact is doing so. I agree she treats him like crap. If she treats him like that in front of cameras, imagine what she does when they are turned off. But that is no reason to cheat. He should just end the marriage and not put their kids through this. I think they should end the show. This is not “reality” anymore. Because in reality, he’d be cheating and out on the town drinking and partying but when the cameras are turned on, they are lovey dovey. They are faking it. I also agree that fame and fortune destroyed their marriage. Kate seems more intrigued by money then her marriage. Just end the marriage, end the show and hopefully these beautiful children can grow up normal and lead normal lives.

  21. Melissa says

    I’m glad she doesn’t have the spikey hairdo anymore..it was starting to bug me.
    I hope this family stays together for the sake of their beautiful children. God bless em.

  22. DJ says

    I saw her on Say Yes to the Dress and she did not seem excited at all when she was picking out a renewal of vows dress, it makes sense now and I hope it is not true that they have a contract that Jon can see other people So so sad just goes to show all the money in the world can’t buy happiness. The real ones to suffer are the poor kids. I really do hope they step back and realize their family unit is nuber one

  23. mommyof2girls says

    Where are the girls dresses from? I think that it is time to end the show and focus on family, something the Gosselins have forgot about. If they are/were truly in love they would quit and work on it.

  24. bethy says

    I agree with both Carleigh and traveler……I don’t watch this show anymore. Used to love it, then got sick of Kate’s nagging and complaining, beating up on Jon, etc. Poor guy. No wonder he cheated, and I wouldn’t be surprised if she is cheating too. TLC will never cancel this show. It brings in too much money for them. And Jon and Kate will never say no to the show, b/c they’re making money out the wazoo!!!! Poor kids is all I can say!

  25. traveler says

    I have issues with this family. They are basically pimping out their children. They take advantage of the lax child labor laws in Pennsylvania. If they were in California, this show would be illegal because of the amount of time the children are on tv. We see potty training, baths, and other intimate family situations that we shouldn’t be seeing. These poor kids need a break from the limelight and a chance to just be normal for a change. Perhaps this is why Maddy seems to act out so much. Maybe she’s rebelling at the intrusion into her life and since her parents are ignoring her, she releases the anger and frustration via inappropriate emotional outbursts. Lord knows I’d be ticked off if I had someone constantly shoving a camera in my face.

  26. carleigh says

    These kids are all beautiful, the older twin Maddy is a real pain in the you-know-what. Screaming, temper tantrums, whining and just a total brat. She’s acting out because she is jealous, sad but true. In the beginning the Gosselin’s were a loving family, centered around God and focused on their family.

    Sadly, the past few years have taken a toll on the family in more ways than one. I think the parents have lost focus. Kate is busy running around and trying to micro-manage every last detail because she is so anal compulsive. Sad, sad, sad, it worked in the beginning but the kids are getting older and have to have the ability to express themselves freely.

    Jon has been henpecked for years and he is also rebelling, but cheating on his wife is no excuse. I believe he did the things he is accused of and it is very sad because they were at one point so very much in love.

    I wish TLC would leave this family in peace, maybe let them get back to their roots. I think the fame and money have gotten out of control and went to the parents heads. They need to back away from the limelight and find out how to work this out for themselves. Getting out now might save their marriage, self respect and more importantly children.

  27. jen says

    Crazy that anyone is still paying attention to this crap! TLC should be ashamed of themselves for allowing this family to continue to gain fame from nasty headlines. From 10pm on Friday until 10pm on Monday all they are airing is a Jon and Kate marathon. Here I was thinking that TLC was probably concerned for this family, but no, money talks… capitalize, capitalize, capitalize.
    I feel so so bad for those sweet little children.

  28. says

    kylie-why are youd judgeing this family they have 8 kids under the age of 9 wouldent you snap at them i would at least she has discapline kids not like other moms who let there kids get away with everything i think everybody should leave them alone they are alreadt going through enough crap already

    anyways i think that kate is a good mommy

  29. sue says

    Wow. Once again women come and make comments that are nasty, b*tchy, catty and full of full of judgement against another woman. And they don’t blame Jon at all! Shocking! Women are so typical.

  30. QTPie says

    Wow. Judge much, kylie? Looking into their home is sometimes a mirror into mine (minus 6 kids). I get frustrated with hubby & snap, too. No one is lovey-dovey 24-7. And I think she treats the kids fantastic – considering the number of them. I love watching them & hope that they pull through this rough patch (we all have them).

  31. kylie says

    This woman is a poor excuse for a mother, period. I don’t understand how anyone can support her after watching the way she treats her children. As for the way she treats her husband, it’s disgusting. She berates him and belittles him every chance she gets. The last show I watched she sat on the interview couch with him, and hurled horrible insults his way repeatedly. She started off by telling him not to breathe, because his breathing was to loud! She then took jabs, at his weight, and then his receding hairline. I felt awful for him. It was truly hard to watch. As far as her saying she is an inspiration to mothers, what a crock. Her husband gets up with the children, bathes them, dresses them, takes them to school and picks them up. She does nothing with those children unless the red light on the camera is on

  32. Melody says

    Such cute kids. Isure hope Kate didn’t panic about the kids getting messy the whole time. She seems like such a perfectionist and organizes everything so excruciatingly. In her defense, everyone looked great and seemed to be having a fun time.

  33. Joloda says

    I don’t know why she dresses them alike… but I notice that the clothes are all from the same store, perhaps the have a clothing contract with that store. Just a thought. I hope it was a happy birthday for the kids. They are going through a lot with all the drama with their parents.
