A few of those new to this site were wondering who is the person is behind the curtain here. This site is mine and mine alone. I have dedicated a bit of my life since July 31st, 2008 to blogging about this family. It's truly a labor of love. I welcome any suggestions and comments, as well as giving you the re-assurance that this site will continue to stay a positive fan site for those that love to talk about the show. There are also 200 posts on the old site, that will give you a sense of why I'm a fan. And why I will always support Kate and this family. xoxo Baby Mama (Photo from Hollyharsh)

The Jon & Kate Plus 8 Madness: Why do we care about this family? From NY Daily News
“When people watch ‘Jon & Kate’ they feel better about their own lives,” says Dr. Debbie Magids, author of “All the Good Ones Are Taken” (St. Martin’s Press). “A lot of TV shows make people feel worse about their own lives since people on TV are happier and sexier and better able to work through their relationships. But with Jon and Kate, it’s what’s going on in everyone’s home. It’s not always perfect and smooth, and up to now, it was about a marriage that was making it.”
The couple’s highly publicized spats aren’t dimming our devotion to Gosselin family, Magids says, at least so far.
“With the new scandal, now there’s a wrench and it’s not working,” she says. “But affairs also happen in many homes. A lot of people are trying to get past an affair, whether it is physical or emotional cheating, because they want to work it out to keep the family together. They look at Jon and Kate and say, this is what it’s like for them and in many other households where people are struggling, too.”
