It’s Only Kate Plus 8: No More Jon, For Goodness Sake!

September 29, 2009

“Kate Plus 8,” which will adopt the new title on Nov. 2, amounts to an image makeover for Kate Gosselin, the Pennsylvania mother of eight. The retooled program will focus on “Kate’s role in the family and her journey as a single mother building the next chapter in her life,” the cable channel said in a news release.

Every time I hear more about this story, I feel so very sad for the children.  I know what it’s like to grow up without a father in the home.  My parents did not divorce.  My father passed away, but it didn’t soothe the pain of not having him around.

My thoughts are that it could only be worse for children who love both their parents but are too young to understand the dynamics of their parents failure to be civil, in public, for the sake of the children.

Who’s to blame?  I would not know who to blame for the divorce.  I can only look at what is going on in the pubic eye.  If the kids are doing well with mom, then to the victor goes the spoils.  I am not saying she is perfect.  She seems to have tons of isues, but who doesn’t.  She has quirks, but she  seems to keep the home in order.

I believe Jon Gosselin has made a public ass of himself.  Running around with younger “girls” and trying to be part of the in-crowd with no in-crowd credientials.  He has no “super sperm” or anything like that.  Jon Gosselin is famous because he is the father of 8 kids.  He is famous because he starred on a reality show about his 8 kids.

Not that he’s no longer on the show…Why is he famous?
