Do you watch Jon and Kate Plus Eight? I do… and I was really saddened by last night’s episode. It seems like they have thrown in the towel and given up already. Jon, especially, speaks as if they are already done. I don’t think I was expecting it to all be so blunt.
Kate is certainly not the easiest person to deal with, I’m sure… but most of the time I give her the benefit of the doubt (although maybe that’s a flaw of mine). I feel like if I had eight kids, I’d probably lose my mind fairly often and get a bit snippy, too. I don’t know if the fame factor has had more to do with their problems or if it’s the fact that they have eight kids and essentially no privacy or normalcy in their lives, but I don’t think I blame them for doing the series. If I had eight kids and made a meager salary, lived in a fairly small house, and didn’t have a ton of options for financial stability, I’d probably consider the opportunity if it meant being able to buy a more comfortable home and eventually send all eight kids to college someday. But I’m sure they never expected how things would unfold over the years, and I wonder if they regret it all now.
What say you?
