Jon and Kate- not so great

In case you have been living under a rock these past few months, Jon and Kate (last names irrelevant to me) are splitting up. Imagine that.... a couple with a set of twins and a set of quads- being followed around by television cameras- thrown(willingly) into the media spotlight- offered book deals and LOTS of money are having marriage problems. Big surprise. Here is the part that pisses me off. You want cameras to follow you around and watch you parent because you have a different angle- Ok. I never really watched the show- but I have friends that love it. But when your marriage is in such turmoil that you aren't speaking to each other- you are taking separate vacations- basically only co-existing for the "benefit of the kids," how about YOU DON'T RENEW FOR THE NEXT SEASON!!!!??? Divorce is hard enough on the families; why INVITE the world in to see it in action? Be grown ups, and protect your kids from this nonsense. You can't control what the tabloids say- but you can prevent a film crew from documenting your awkward tension and incredible disdain for each other. This is REALITY TELEVISION. It is scripted and warped to create a great storyline. And while Kate may say ....

"Over the course of this weekend, Jon's activities have left me no choice but to file legal procedures in order to protect myself and our children," she said. "While there are reasons why it was appropriate and necessary for me to initiate this proceeding, I do not wish to discuss those reasons at this time, in the hope that all issues will be resolved amicably between Jon and myself. As always, my first priority remains our children."

...that is complete bullshit. If your first priority were your children, tv production would be shut down and you would take care of them during this transition, instead of pimping them out to secure your next book tour. Nonsense
. Please stop watching this show! These people are disgusting.
