Is really sad watching a family fall apart right in front of your eyes..Show biz got the best of them...is only obviousthey had problems in their marriage...she was a control freak!! Him in the other hand, went crazy with women...does he not realize that the women are just attracted to that guy on tv not him...I blame both of them for being selfish, and not thinking what this was going to do these babies....Don't people realize that everything you do affects your children??? and they are only changing what these kids will become in the future?

I enjoyed watching Jon and Kate plus 8. I think it is sad that they pulled the plug on the show, but at the time it is proably for the best. Right now they both need to focus on their kids and make sure they are okay. No, I don't think what jon is doing is right. But she isn't entirely blameless either.

Hi Everyone, I'm so dissapointed they stopped airing the show. I loved watching it. I think Kate is a good mom and does a great job with raising 8 children.

I enjoyed watching the show..it's ashame they aren't taping anymore. I think Kate is a great mom, alittle controlling at times but I guess you have to be when dealing with 8 kids, 9 including Jon. She's always the one doing things with them.

Quoting Kari:

Oh and does anyone think Hailey Glassman would want an older guy with 8 kids if he wasnt famous!!!???


Haha, NOPE.



Its allll about his being 'famous' Im sure. She's got herself on every tv tabloid program, news program, magazine...She;s getting her 10 min of fame while she can. Funny thing is...how much is she going to love him when all this 'famous' stuff wears out? When he's Mr Jon Nobody Special again and he's working an everyday job trying to pay childsupport for all those kids for the next dozen or more years! Every penny he will earn will go to support, he wont be able to have any relationshio unless it is with any already financially set woman who doesnt need his support



Either way, it wont last

WELL NONE OF US CAN FORM A OPINION !!! THESE PEOPLE HAVE SCRIPTS 2 REPEAT. NOT!! I THINK THAT FOR NOW THE PARENTS SHOUD SWITCH OFF WITH THE KIDS IN THE CHILDRENS HOME. IT IS ABOUT THEM. A REAL MAN COULD OF MADE IT WORK !!! THEY DID SHARE LOVE @ 1 TIME RIGHT ? I DONT THINK KATE MADE THAT DECISION IF SHE IS SO WORRIED ABOUT PUBLICITY. IM SURE WHEN KATE HAS A FEW MOMENTS ALONE SHE FEELS ALONE & JON AS WELL NONE OF THESE GIRLS NO HIM AS WELL AS KATE DID. NOT 2 SAY HE IS NOT TRYIN 2 HAVE FUN. KATE HAS REACHED HER BREAKING POINT & JON NEEDS 2 STEP UP 2 THE PLATE NOW!!!! THEY R 2 FAR IN

Sad for the kids and Kate, over Jon and his immature activities and outbursts. Kate may very well be controlling and very anal retentive, but at least she puts those wonderful 8 kids first. Jon is being shown as being an immature putz who doesn't know how to be a dad to 8 kids, let alone take care of himself. Poor kids.

Seriously, do you think a household with 8 kids would be able to run as smoothly as theirs without someone being a bit anal? It would be chaos. Just because someone is being the responsible one (Kate) doesn't give the other one (Jon) an excuse to run around with other women. The show enabled them to live the dream life and nobody thought anything of it until Jon started acting like an ass. I feel sorry for the kids in the sense that they are in the middle of a messy divorce not that I think they are being exploited on TV. Any child would be suffering in their situation. Jon is just a douche and Kate will be better off without him anyway.

I personally lay a lot of the blame on Kate. What a bit&^^. The way she spoke to him in public was uncalled for. She is a control freak who needs to be brought now to earth. I feel for the kids. They are the ones are really suffering. These parents should be ashamed of themselves. Greed got to both of them.

Kate, is beautiful! With all the work she has had done she is absolutely beautiful......Jon, He's let himself go.....He's smoking in pictures , eating fast food....junk food....I guess his love life is falling apart.....Whatever the case may be....I think they both need to cut the losses and let the kids be kids! Those poor kids are so over exposed , and over worked.......Let them be KIDS !

I really think that the show and everyone by that matter is just focusing on the parents and their relationship.. I do feel bad for the kids but mostly for the girls because its so easy for them to turn on the tv and see their parents right there just talking about the hate one another...I think now, its just gotten to the point to where they are probably just doing it for the exposure...I dont bealive them anymore and i stopped watchin the show due to what the show is about now.... About Jon and Kate!!!!

I say welcome to the real world. Work hard and support your kids like everyone else in this world does and quit relying on the media to feed your kids and own an immaculate home. Maybe this is a little harsh but thousands of people in this world go through divorce everyday and pick up the pieces and remain civil adults for their kids sake. It's hard to do but that's the REALITY.

I've always liked the show...even before it was a show... The reality is they are going through "real life" things just like everyone else (minus the cameras)... Divorce isn't easy on anyone and it's mainly a bunch of petty he said she said stuff but the bottom line is Actions speak louder than words... Jon moved to New York and is dating around with younger women before the finalization of the divorce, while Kate is still devoted to the children and whatever means of income she can bring into the home... So what if she enjoys the fruits of her labour ( hair, clothing, spa, etc.) her children are fed, clothed, and sheltered in a beautiful home!! We all have our faults but as long as our business is being taken care of, i can't find the issue...

it is so ridiculous! i used to be a fan of the show, now i dont kno what to think. my #1 thought is jon needs to grow up and stop seeing these young girls atleast until his divorce goes through, and then moving right to NY away from his kids? to be w. another girl... helllooo.... ahhh it gets me fired up just talking of him.... but both parents need to suck it up they have 8 kids... common.... i really feel bad for the little ones...

I think Jon is a jerk and Kate is just kinda lost. I always thought he was rolling his eyes at her all the time. Going thru all that together having all those kids should have brought them together or was it all the limelight that destroyed them.

If anyone watched it from season 1, Kate is very controlling. always yelling at jon for absolutely nothing sometimes! its ridiculous. and he never treated her poorly. always did exactly what she said when she said it. thats ridiculous. he finally got a set of balls and stood up to her. yeah; she cries about it now; says shes the victim, hes mean. he stole money. shes filing for custody. but when she was at home; who paid all the bills? He is an IT something or other; he paid for everything. She doesn't have any money. Thats why she is doing public things all the time. She is nothing without those kids. And if she loses them; shell go back to being a nother. Did we all hear about how she freaked out at the guy at her gym? He didn't know who she was.. And oh boy did she bugg! Thats letting the attention get to your head. Sorry, but she is a horrible Mom. I like Jon way better.

You have to remember, all Jon is doing is defending himself. Kate is the one going on tv and accusing him of stuff. He hasn't accused her of anything outright like she has to him.

I think they need to work this out through the courts and stop playing this he said she said stuff they are doing in the media. I think Jon messed uo, but if you have ever watched the show, you will understand that Kate is very anal retentive, and is also an emotional wreck. I think they need to both speak to each other through their attorneys.

Whenever I watched the show I always felt bad for Jon because Kate was so controlling and just plain rude to him. I knew it was only a matter of time until they broke up because she's just downright mean and unthoughtful. Jon is definitely taking this time and spending it in the Lime Light which I don't really agree with, but if anything I'm much more on his side than hers. My family lives near Lancaster and one of my mom's friends has met Kate and said how ridiculously rude she was. She said the show had totally changed the way Kate thought about herself, which proves all she really wants is attention and to prove she's the victim. I don't think so KATE!

[deleted account]

i loved the show in the beginning but now everything is just crazy. Jon is acting like a spoiled brat because it is now Kate plus 8, so he pulls the stop on the show saying it is eploiting his childred. Well you should have thought at first Jon, and then he withdraws everything but 1000 of their bank account. Kate is the one with the kids and still lives in the house. No I am not on Kate's side, but I cannot blame her for wearing the pants in the relationship after watching what Jon does when there is no Kate. She techincally had 9 kids in that household instead of just 8!! Just my opinion :)

I think someone needs to make them go DARK. as in CIA terms for falling off the map. Take care of your kids and stop hurting them

I'm bored with Jon...He's the one going out openly, having the paparizza follow and photograph him and then wants to do what's best for the kids? HUH? At least when Kate is traveling she either takes the kids, or is doing speaking or book signing dates, thus creating an income for her family. I use to think she was snobby, but now think otherwise. I've yet to hear Kate openly belittle Jon. More power to Kate.

In the beginning, I felt for Jon now that he has shown us how irresponsible he can be, maybe Kate had to be controlling because he sure isn't doing very well on his own. As far as the kids go, this is the only life they have known, being on TV, this is their normal, we may not understand this but they know nothing else. If it had not been for the show, these children would not have experienced any of the things they have, I have not had the opportunity to live their life so I am not an expert on this, I know that through prayer anything is possible, they all need our prayers.

I would rather watch him in the show personally. When he has interviews, I feel he is being as honest and sincere as he can, but when Kate talks about everything, it just seems fake. She preaches about morality, yet she kept him from his family and friends and guilt tripped him if he wanted to see them. She wore the pants and the one time he put his foot down, she left him. It sucks, but I always like him more. He was a good husband.

I agree. I don't see any point in the show any more. Now it's like Jon and Kate plus eight minus Jon plus Haley now minus the dogs. Its just sad. And who is getting hurt? The kids. Kate is trying to play the victim card but she is as much to blame in all of this. Sad, just sad. Poor little kids. They didn't ask for any of this.

I agree , i think it is a huge mess and it is horrible when parents seperate and have 1 child but they have 8 kids to think about. As for jon i think the kids are the last thing on his mind just for the simple fact that he knows the media is following him around taking pictures of him and all different girls and i am sure his kids see something about which makes it that much harder on them

Where do you begin.. The idea orginally behind the show was good I think... But I think that someone lost track of the point of the show and got a little to involved in SHOW business... Those poor kids... NOw they have a dad sleeping with who ever whenever.. and a mom that is total control freak who likes the LIME light too much... Where do the kids go from here?? I dont know..
