Jon + Kate = Divorce. [Update by Jackie]
UPDATE: According to the LA Times, “After months of speculation, the famed reality couple from TLC’s ‘Jon & Kate Plus 8’ is heading to divorce court. In a much-promoted episode of the hit series Monday night, Jon and Kate Gosselin, the parents of eight children, announced in separate interviews they were separating; seconds later, text appeared on a black screen to add that the couple had decided to ‘legally dissolve’ their 10-year marriage. The children will stay in the house, the couple said, and Jon and Kate will switch off living there.”
Jon and Kate Gosselin filed separation papers in Pennsylvania court. This was actually done before their ” big announcement” episode.
I have to admit I have not been watching the show. I watched the first episode of this season and was so upset by it that I decided to stop watching it altogether. [I don’t need to see the demise of a family and the inevitable scarring of children. – Angela] [I don’t even know who these people are. Are we related? – Alicia]
It is hard to not follow what is going on with the family, seeing that every tabloid and magazine cover has some picture of Kate on the beach or Jon out at a bar. The kids are cute and I feel bad for them. At least they will be rich now.
Well, unless Kate uses all the money to get her hair highlighted and butched up. I am not one to talk though, I love highlighting and butching my hair real short, too. [What’s up with the usage of the word “butch”?]
Jon was recently spotted apartment hunting in New York City. So now the question is, will they just separate and get back together? Will they get a divorce? [Will Jon star in his own reality show about the perils of paying child support to eight kids while trying to afford a studio apartment in the Upper East Side?] To be honest with you I don’t even know what a legal separation means. Do you have to go through legalities to not be separated anymore? Can you just hang out as friends? Can I adopt Leah? (She is the cutest.) Clearly, I have lots of questions.
Anyway, there you have it. The big “announcement” that nobody saw coming. And by nobody I mean everybody.
