Jon vs. Kate

Yes, that's right. I'm obsessed. (At least it's not those damn Twilight books) I remember a few months ago when a friend of mine was telling me about this affair that Jon Gosselin was having and I didn't believe him. Not only did I not believe it, but I became very defensive about it.

Friend: Did you hear that Jon's having an affair with a teacher? That could have been you.
Me: What?!?! How dare you! What do you believe everything you read in the gossip magazines??? You're just a dumb boy! Get a life!

It wasn't until the new season of the show came on that I even believed there was anything wrong with the couple. I remember watching the season premiere with my jaw on the floor while texting and tweeting everyone I knew to see who else was watching. The whole world was talking about it.

Then the announcement came... I was shocked. Usually when things like this happen I'm terribly dissapointed because tv tends to make things worse then they are. I keep telling myself "They're not gonna get divorced...they just want us to think that to spark new interest". How wrong I was.

I'm not sure, but this might be the biggest divorce announcement since Sonny and Cher. Don't quote me on that though...I'm just taking a wild guess.

I actually feel guilty now because I never liked Kate. I always thought she was an over controlling bitch. Now I think Jon is kind of an asshole. I hate to take sides...I don't even know these people. My mom and I actually had a heated discussion about the topic. Then I thought about it. What's the big deal? My parents divorced when I was the same age as the twins and my sister was the same age as the sextuplets. We turned out fine. Most marriages end in divorce and the majority of the people in this world are fine. In fact, divorce has pretty much become the norm. I have friends whose parents are still together and absolutely hate each other and it has to be said that they're not quite right in the head.

I can't believe I just wrote a whole blog about this...

I almost forgot! I got 2 awards!

I got this from Missy. Check her out!
I'm passing it on to RookieBlogger @ Life Uncensored. Check her out! (I would also like to add that she cannot take this award until Monday when her birthday has arrived)

I also got this award from Hit 40 because she claims that I inspire her. I'm not sure what I inspire her to do but I can almost guarantee that our classroom parents would not approve.
I'm passing this one on to Joanie.

Congrats on the AWARDS!

I am sooo glad to hear someone bitch about that nasty Kate. I always thought she was so mean to Jon the few times I watched the show.

Joanie M said...

Congrats on your award and aren't you sweet to pass it on to me! I hope I can live up to it!

Did you know that Jon and Kate live near Reading? (of course, you did) I used to watch them in passing while channel surfing late at night waiting for sleep to come. Right around the time she got plastic surgery t fix her tummy. I thought it was OK.

I actually thought maybe the cheating and divorce rumors were all a tease to spice up the show and get more people to watch.

The other night I went to the bar that Jon supposedly met his mistress at. Right here, in the great county of Berks.

What does it say about Berks County that the only celebrities to come out of it are the Gosselins and Taylor Swift?

Either way, I wouldn't be the least surprised if they got back together somewhere down the road. I wouldn't hold my breath, but it wouldn't surprise me either. Especially now with the announcement that the show will continue (except that they're ditching the "iconic" couch setup and doing separate interviews).

Divorce is not the terror that it is made out to be, the terror would be if my parents had remained together, they really are not compatible, maybe when they were young, but they are so different that I could never have seen them working out!

otin said...

The whole Jon and Kate thing is probably contrived, they will probably get back together and it will be a huge ratings getter!

I like your admission. Everyone has their guilty pleasure tv show(s) they like. I sometimes watch the Real Housewives of NY. I can't believe I do but I do. Don't care about the others tho'.

As for the Gosselins, I honestly had no idea who they were until they made the tabloids with all their problems. Every time I was in a checkout line, there would be headlines about these people I'd never heard of, so I finally picked up a magazine. That prompted me to watch the show one night. You are right, the wife seems a great deal controlling and bitchy.

What I don't know and cannot understand is how did they come to have eight children? If you would enlighten me on that point, I'd appreciate it...and are they octuplets or multiple sets of twins, trips and such?

Hit 40 said...

I love what you did with your awards!! Excellent.

I am a little disgusted with Jon and Kate because they paid so much money to have all the kids....

if they did not really love each other?? Why all the kids?? I think they could have tried to work things out a little more. Maybe..

a little prozac for Kate to mellow her out and some adderall for Jon to kick his lazy ass in gear!!!

Sarah K said...

apparently you don't grocery shop? it's been all over the rag mags! i always figured jon was trapped in that marriage. who leaves a woman with 8 kids? if they didn't have the money, i'm sure he would've stayed. i heard he's engaged to the daughter of the doctor that did kate's free tummy tuck.

Congrats on the awards ... I have no idea who Jon and Kate are, but it seems I might be better off that way!! :0)

rookieblogger said...

First: thanks for the award, I am truly flattered.
Second: I don't really watch this show, but I know all about obsession of certain tv shows.. I have my own guilty pleasures..I even did a post on the bachellorette - wanted to do but I forced myself not to :) as for jon and kate, I always thought jon was the scumbag just based on hearsay, but looks like kate had her own issues too.. but then you never really know.. I think reality tv can sometimes be filmed a certain way to get ratings..

Who knows what the true story is. Gallivanting about the Hamptons with various ladies and Lindsey Lohan's dad is probably not the best for one's image. Ah ha

Medora said...

I don't know much about these people - have never seen the show and have only seen information about them on magazine covers and the Net. They are white trash personified, and I don't see why anyone cares about them. Those poor kids are in for a rough ride, but then again, so are a lot of kids, you know?

Congrats on your awards. Especially the New Favorite Award. Yum! I've watched a couple episodes throughout the years and to be completely honest, they never looked that happy. I just assumed it was because there were too many damn mouths to feed.
