Someone please pull the plug on that show. It's felt in bad taste after about the second season, and now it's just ridiculous

Shocking, I know, but I'm on Team Kate here.

Last night was complete crap listening to Jon talk about the ski instructor as if she was some kind of saint helping a handicapped kid ski down a mountain. Big fucking deal. She put him on a ski lift and shoved him forward. Kate deals with eight kids on a daily basis - HIS kids - but he never seems to sing Kate's praises or give Kate any credit.

And if that had been Kate out there on that mountain with a hot young ski instructor after being accused of having an affair the tabloids would have crucified her. It's ok for Jon, though. He needed some time away. Poor baby. While Kate was, again, with the kids.

I've actually only watched a handful of episodes. About a year ago there was a marathon on one evening, and I was curious. Other than that, most of my knowledge comes from what I've read online. It never ceases to amaze me the slack that people cut Jon, and how Kate is constantly crucified. She didn't seem that bad from what I saw. She seems like a bit of a control freak, but with 8 kids, you'd kind of have to be. Jon seems kind of childish to me.

The thing is, she didn't write any of the books. Her friend Beth did. Before becoming an "author" J &K traveled the country asking for "love offerings" at speaking engagements failing to mention all the (ongoing) help TLC was giving them.

I find it hard to believe Kate is the martyr she love us to believe she is. They've been getting a lot of help since at least the second season when Jon started to "work" from home.

And yes, Jon often acts like a petulant child. They are both culpable.

It doesn't matter.

I DVR'd 2 shows and watched them tonite. I came to the conclusion that it's difficult to watch without the whole family filming together. I don't buy this one parent at home with the kids at all time BS. The whole dynamic of the show's changed and knowing what's been all over the tabloids and the airing of dirty laundry between and by both Jon and Kate I don't think I'll be watching this show any longer.

I have always thought that they were both losers. He's incredibly passive aggressive and whiny and she's incredibly high maintenance and rude.

I do find her more offensive in the sense that she grates (it's the voice) and I have a very and I mean VERY strong aversion for people who like to micromanage other people's lives. I get that in her case she probably has to given the size of the family, but I can't stand that sort of personality and have had real trouble in life dealing with people like her.
