    John & Kate Plus 8

    It's the summer doldrums and haven't seen anybody post on this topic.

    I enjoyed watching this reality series in it's early years and I think a lot of young families can relate to what this young couple go through with young kids.

    Now it sounds like each one has been messing around on the other and the marriage is on the rocks.

    I was watching a clip from the Today show this morning and they were discussing how the media seems to favor John, but not Kate and some don't think it's "fair". One commentator said, well Kate's been eviscerating John on the series since it started, and that's part of the reason she isn't looked on as favorably.

    I got agree with the commenator. That gal has shot a lot of zings at him over the years. He seems like a fairly laid back guy while she comes across as very high maintenance. It would be darn tough for me to put up with personally.

    I hope they can work things out for the kids sake. The only way I see that happening is if they make their lives private again, but I think Kate likes the attention so not sure if it will happen.

    Thoughts? This should be interesting.

    Watching this program would merit me losing my man card.

    Re: John & Kate Plus 8

    I watch it because it makes having 4 kids seem like a walk in the park, although they do get quite a bit more help than we do.

    Re: John & Kate Plus 8

    They should cancel this tv program - there has to be more "500lb teen" and "half-ton mom" that they can play instead. Then we don't have to listen to Kate - and don't have to hear about their lives in the media!

    My prediction: They stay together for as long as TLC gives them a paycheck, and then he murders her.

    Re: John & Kate Plus 8

    My wife watches this show, therefore I have seen it. Everytime I watch I tell my wife, "she is such a *****!" She's OCD and a control freak

    If they wanted to reconcile things they'd stop taping shows...but a least those kids will be able to watch with their shirnk 10 years from now why they ended up so eff'd in the head.

    To each their own....

    But I can't wait for this show to go off the air and not have to hear about it on every gossip, news, opinion show or commercial referencing such.

    Carry that sentiment over to just about every other (scripted) "reality show"

    Re: John & Kate Plus 8

    I really struggle to watch a show that people got just because they have a bunch of kids.
    That being said I watch Deadliest Catch and that's just guys fishing so I guess we all have our strange addiction to some type of reality tv.

    Re: John & Kate Plus 8

    Im on Jon and the kids' side. She comes off as being mean and self centered. My wife likes to watch the old ones where they seemed happy and more of a family. They used to sit next to each other on the couch and would joke back n forth. Now they cant be within 5 feet of each other and dont even make eye contact. Its sad really. Media can change people.
