Jon + 8, Kate + 8

As much as I hated myself for doing it, I tuned in to Jon and Kate's big announcement and after the show was over I was disappointed, but not at all surprised.

Who didn't see a divorce announcement coming?

I hate it for the Gosselin family, but I was kinda mad about the whole thing.

It felt so scripted. Here was an episode supposedly filmed weeks (perhaps months) ago, and then they go and insert a little statement into the middle of their interviews that said they were filing for a divorce. Yesterday. The same day their "big announcement" has been teased for a week now.

Don't even get me started on how demure and innocent Kate tried to appear during her couch sessions last night. I told Jeremy that it was completely obvious that Kate was trying to appear so sweet and innocent, but anyone who has watched the show knows that Kate is like a vulture. I know she is probably heartbroken over this, but Kate hasn't paid attention to how much Jon has struggled with his new found fame for 5 seasons now. It was clear that Kate loved the lime light, and Jon was over having paparazzi chasing him everywhere.

And it seems that Jon finally just had enough of Kate running over him.

I do wish the family the best, and I hope the kids adjust well to their new situation. Who knows how life would have played out for them had they never gotten involved in a reality show. They might have gone down this same road, but I really don't think so.

I think the show changed both of them, and now it's going to change their family forever.

So long Jon and Kate....it's been nice knowing y'all, but I think I'm done with the show now.

I too was mad and upset last night. UGH. How did we get pulled in. I am so disappointed. I think they need to quit the show.

I sooo wish that their announcement would have been "We're quitting the show so we can focus on healing our marriage and family". Hello, common sense??

I quit watching months ago. This whole thing just made me sick. But yeah... it's not like we're so dumb we couldn't see this coming. I wish TLC would just pull the plug on the whole mess! But ratings are the thing... so if ratings continue to drop, so will the show. We can only hope at this point!

I stopped watching a while ago too. I just couldn't stand watching Kate abuse Jon! What makes me sick is their whole renewal of vows ceremony--how they promised their children they would stay together, forever. What was that? A big joke? Hmpf.
