sad day...

Ok, so I don't really have anything to update right now so I have decided to talk about something that has bothered me lately. I am sure that you have heard about the TV show on TLC called Jon and Kate plus 8. Its a show about a family made up of a set of 8 year old twins and 5 year old sextuplets. Talk about crazy! I can't imagine what that would be like, that and having a TV show about it. That has got to be hectic.

Recently they have been in the tabloids because of some problems Jon and Kate have been having in their marriage. At first I was a bit skeptical. I wasn't really sure if it was true or if it was just the media making a big deal about nothing like they sometimes do. I mean honestly you never know with them. They are monsters that's for sure! I was curious so I decided to research it. I mean, I love this show! So I wanted to know what was going on. I guess some of the stories have been confirmed by Jon and Kate themselves. I am sitting here watching the season 5 premiere right now and they've been addressing this very issue. They are doing their interviews in the show separately now! So sad how they are falling apart. They've mentioned divorce a couple times actually and it seriously makes me want to cry. Not just for Jon and Kate because their marriage is coming to an end... but also for the children. In the episode they were celebrating the sextuplets 5th birthday and Jon not only came to the party separate form them but also left early. One of the sextuplets looked at him and said "I don't want you to leave anymore daddy". That breaks my heart :(.

I just don't know why they are even continuing this series. I would seriously be ending the show, trying to save my marriage, and protecting my kids from the media! I just don't think that keeping the show going is going to help anything really... I actually am beginning to think if it was a good idea to start the show in the first place actually. I mean, I know it was a source of money so that they could afford to support that many kids... but I think that at this point it is doing more damage than good.

Anyway, It just makes me sad when things like this happen. I really hope that they can work through it and figure out the best possible solution for them and their family. I just hope and pray that things work out for them.

I watched it too! I am sooo sad about all of it, but I think it's kind of their own doing. I mean, come on! Who wants a TV camera in their lives? I think Kate needs to reasses and not be gone so much and stay home with her family!

Yeah it is really sad. I don't know much about this family but I know that its bad for the kids if they get a divorce. I hope everything works out for them.
