What should happen to Jon and Kate?

by Michael Pascua, posted Jun 19th 2009 2:08PM
How ironic is it to see this picture of Jon and Kate Gosselin now?I've wasted many hours of my life watching Jon & Kate plus Eight. We're given yet another promo about a big announcement on the show. Since it's not until Monday, we get the weekend to make speculations.

With a reality show like Jon and Kate plus Eight, one doesn't expect millions of plot twists like Lost so I doubt that we're going to flash forward five years or wake up and realize that it was all a dream. Here is a list of sane and insane announcement ideas that Jon and Kate should announce.

They will separate – Kate mentions Christian values a lot. I didn't think the word "divorce" was in the Christian dictionary. Instead, the two agree that it's best for the children if they have some time apart.
Likelihood: Well, it's technically happening already. Announcing it to the world sounds like something that TLC would say to gain viewers.

They will divorce – There were rumors of Jon obtaining divorce papers, but I don't think that it will get that serious that quickly. Either way, it's probably Jon who will benefit because Kate holds the money.
Likelihood: Slim, I don't think that they would announce a divorce until the end of season five to capitalize on their cash cow.

They are ending the show – Probably not, but with the dip in viewership, I could see Kate thinking that the show isn't worth it anymore.
Likelihood: Little, TLC owns their souls.

Kate is joining Dancing with the Stars – Okay, this is a personal pipe dream, but Kate is willing to show off her body in public, she probably won't mind a skimpy dress. Also, the show could help soften her image if she doesn't beat her professional.
Likelihood: Let's hope not. It would be amusing if she had Maksim Chmerkovskiy and she berated him.

The Octomom is coming to visit – I think this would be worse than Kate joining DWTS. Kate has berated Nadya Suleman and Nadya has countered maybe they will finally meet and punch each other.
Likelihood: Better than one expects. Dear basic cable: Stop it with the (OMG!) multiple children.

Kate will announce her new television show – You know that Kate wants to become white Oprah. I hope that no one falls into her trap. Imagine Good Morning with Kate Gosselin. I cringe just thinking about it.
Likelihood: Not yet, but I guarantee you that Kate will try to shop a talk show to different networks.

Nothing – You know what? TLC has baited and switched before with Jon and Kate plus Eight. Maybe they are yanking our chain to get the viewers back.
Likelihood: A dumb announcement sounds like an interesting television ploy. Every reality commercial sounds like that (Shocking Elimination! Who goes home?)

In all hopes I wish that the media would calm down on the Jon and Kate storm. They are normal people. Yes, they sold their souls to the television gods, but it originally was in good faith. The kids are adorable and it's just painful watching the eight of them cope with marital trouble. Leave more announcement ideas below.

How is that not reality? It's what real couples go through. And you say the kids make the money, well the kids didn't have themselves you know. Plus, put your self in their situation, lets say you have 8 beautiful children...Can you affort it with your job? I think they made a great choice by starting the show, not only are the financially stable but tell me one time you have heard one of the 8 kids not want to be on the show? In my opinion the kids very much enjoy the cameras filming their lives and the show isn't making the childeren do things they shouldn't or don't want to do. Jon and Kate are very good parents, one more than the other. Jon is wrong for cheating and if he didn't want to be in a relationship with Kate he should have never had 1 yet only 8 kids with her.

Kate every show I have seen you are yelling at Jon and the kids. how good is that for the kids? it seems you like to control everything and everyone around you. why in the world would you continue with the show? it seems that money is more important then your marriage. don't give up get some marriage counseling. give it a chance. do it for your kids. they need both you and Jon. they don't deserve this.

If Jon and Kate get a divorce i realy think Jon should get the twins and the dogs. Kate the sextuplets. If Kate had all eight kids the twins would probally get pushed aside a lot like they do now. If Jon had the twins they would get more attention. Even though people dont like to seperate kids it would probally work better that way. Jon should get the dogs couse kate doesnt like them very much. Plus Jon wanted the dogs in the first place.

I also agree that this family initially did the show to have enough money to take care of the kids well. They had good intentions. Based on what I know Jon does, he most likely was making at most 80,000 a year, more like 60, so no way could he take care of 8 kids with his salary, even if they were getting handouts from local businesses. They obviously did not think their show would turn into reality gold. TLC is making millions off of them, why shouldn't they get a piece.

Someone made a comment about her vagina being wide. She had a C section. Jon stated at the end of Season 4 he hated the spotlight. Also, in a recent article he stated he wanted to go back to being himself. The preppy look with sweaters over Polo shirts, obviously was not him. He has a bunch of tattoos, was recently caught smoking and is wearing two ear rings now. My guess is that he was sort of a bad boy when Kate met him, and TLC dressed him up as a Mr. Brady type.

Get rid of her Jon and quickly. Hire a good lawyer and get alimony since she is the "breadwinner" of the family and made you quit the job you loved two years ago to take care of the kids so she could go out into the world and work. Now look at her and everything she's got...seems to me she's made her bed now you can reap from it.

Maybe they will both be having sex change operations so the personality's more match the gender.. Jon will become Jen, and Kate could be Jake. Next season will be Jen and Jake plus 8! For the next season wrap up they could do a tie-in with Cops.. Jake(Kate) wearing a wife-beater T-shirt while being hauled off in a police cruiser, leaving a battered and bloody Jen(Jon) hollering "I won't press charges honey...I love you!!!"

That Posting is in poor taste. For your information, the vagina is a muscle that can accomadate various size objects.

I just want to ask. If you watch Kate and all the comments she makes to her husband and about her husband. Would you seriously want to stay with this angry woman. She needs to watch her own T.V show and ask herself, How much fun is she to live with???
Jon seems to be a layed back, loving dad. Hey Kate give the poor guy a break!!
