    OK, I admit I have never watched one single episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8. You can't swing a dead cat without seeing their faces plastered all over the place.

    Can somebody summarize for me what in the world this is all about?

      I feel guilty earning points for posting on this topic. These people have no shame and apparently they haven't any modesty either. bybee

        No clue, but the rest of my family is/was nuts about the show. From what I understand, it was merely a reality TV show that follows the life of a couple that had twins and then sextuplets... for a total of eight children. How anyone could find this show entertaining is beyond me.

          OK, so what's the deal now? They got a divorce and the family fell apart?

          They appear to be a couple of raving morons.

            Now they're getting a very public divorce and playing the blame game on TV. It's really sad that they've made the decision to drag their children through this. They should both be ashamed.

              The saddest part of this all is that the children have been the most mature people in the family. They were the ones who wanted to end the show, and they are the ones who will carry the big, hideous scarlet letter of public stigma and private shame for the rest of their lives. The whole thing is emblematic of problem of the family right now. Parent want to be children again so children are forced to act like parents.

              Hope that last statement was enough of a generalization for everyone...

                  Wasn't there a guy that put his kid in a balloon recently? Perhaps we'll discuss that tomorrow.

                  Anyways, it's all about fame whores.

                    I'm stunned the media considers these freaks newsworthy. They should both be shot.

                      Perhaps we will. There will be a new topic everyday, if that topic is something you wish to ignore that's fine with me.

                      Seems that way doesn't it?

                        The media covers what people are interested in. Apparently people are interested in these people for some strange reason.

                          Are there any fans of the show around? (anyone willing to admit they watch or follow Jon and Kate?)

                            ...which just makes me wonder why the bottom hasn't completely fallen out yet.

                            Never watched an episode of this so-called "show," just can't seem to avoid the coverage of this sordid, twisted, voyeuristic, pathetic, money-grubbing attention-grasping exercise. I'd say they should be ashamed but they're clearly incapable of it and I'd say I feel bad for the kids but they'll squeeze their own fifteen minutes out of it down the road. A plague on 'em all...

                              Maybe it has fallen out.
