Jon and Kate call it quits

Shocker of all shockers, Jon and Kate Gosselin are legally separating. They filled papers and everything.

If you have never watched their reality show, Jon and Kate Plus 8 and you were only were going by what you’ve seen in the tabloids (or this video) you might just think that Kate Gosselin is the victim in all this.

I can assure you that she is not.

She has got to be one of the meanest, nastiest woman to have ever appeared on the reality TV show. And that’s saying a lot. I don’t know who she treats worse – her soon to be ex-husband or her eight kids.

They both say in this video that they are going to share custody of their eight children and that the children will remain living in the home while the parents rotate in and out. If you’ve watched the show, you know that Kate is rarely ever home. She’s usually traveling around giving speeches on how to be a terrific mother or to pimp one of her books.

My guess is that they will both end of seeking sole custody of the eight kids. The parent that doesn’t get custody will end up owing the other parent about a bazillion dollars in child support every month. That could be problematic since neither Jon or Kate has a job.

What’s The Learning Channel teaching with ‘Jon and Kate Plus 8′?

1219781801496For the life of me, I cannot figure out what exactly The Learning Channel is trying to teach people with it’s hit reality show Jon & Kate Plus 8.  Whatever it is, it must be really important.  Otherwise, it wouldn’t be on The Learning Channel. It claims to be the only television network dedicated to lifelong learning for viewers who want to grow up, not old.

From what I can tell, the only thing people can learn from Jon & Kate Plus 8 is that men should avoid marrying bitchy women addicted to fertility drugs. That’s the only thing I’ve ever learned from the show. Not that I needed that particular lesson taught to me.

Jon and Kate Gosselin have been in the tabloids lately because of rumors that Jon and Kate have essentially split up. They are also saying that Jon is seeing another woman. I don’t know if that’s true, but I say anything he can do that stops him from putting the business end of a loaded shotgun in his mouth, is more than okay. At least I’m not going to judge him for it.
