No clue. However, the fact that she says "bring EACH OF US some peace" makes me think divorce or at the least separation. Maybe I'm wrong but it sounded like she was referring to them separately not together or she would have said "bring US some peace".I think they realize everyone feels they are already separated. We all wonder why they keep showing them together but not speaking or even acknowledging each other. Either they or TLC realize they have to address the issue for the fans to continue watching, as opposed to showing episodes prior to the season premiere.I can't say I'm "nervous" about the coming episode like some others say they are, but I am definitely intrigued and will watch. Hopefully they are a little more forthcoming and decisive than they have been in the past.(Hhhhmmmm. Why do I have to hit Post Comment and enter a different "word" before my comment is approved?)
I am truly heart broken over what this could be. My guess is that they are canceling the show or it will be just Kate + 8. Which I will still watch if it is just Kate. I like Jon, but I am getting aggravated with his whinning. I would hate to see them cancel the show, but if it can save their marriage, I am all for it. But, IMO the marriage is gone. I don't think I could forgive my husband(if he cheated or not), for putting the family in that position and I am not famous. Imagine how she feels.
Just read on radar that the announcement is a divorce. I am devestated....
I feel that the big announcement is that they are going to move to that secluded property that they looked at on the way to the beach. It would give them peace that Kate refers to.
What they should do, if it's at all possible -- TLC should tape the rest of this season's episodes and just not air them until perhaps the Fall. Let all this die down. That way Jon and Kate fulfill their contract and get paid. TLC will still get the ratings, just in the Fall. The papparazi will go away, maybe not immediately, but taking J&K out of the limelight for awhile will greatly help. That way, the family gets a legitimate break. Just my opinion.
Radar online has already pulled the announcement. It was posted 53 minutes ago and now it is gone. I tried the link, then I searched for it. It took me right to radar, but the page is now an error.
This is very heartbreaking for everyone. As I felt when my own marraige ended. Life will go on, the kids will rebound and once again Jon and Kate can be happy. They will all be happy. It will just take time. Lots and lots of time that hopefully none of us will see.
Does anyone regularly follow "Radar" and know if they have previously posted false information? (I'm looking for any hope that their statement may be false!)
It was Kate's brother that leaked the news. Is it for real? We'll find out Monday. However, her brother is a bit richer no matter what. I think it's scuzzy that her brother would say this if it was true or not!
The really sad part is that Kate told the kids that her and Jon would be together forever and ever. Now what is Kate going to tell the kids?
Thats sad. I hope its wrong, but I have a feeling its not. :(

Who knows I mean TLC is in need of a ratings boost since the ratings have declined each week. I think it is a separation maybe with an intent to get divorced, but If they had leaglly filed for divorce we would know probably. I do know you have to be legally sepaarted for "x" number of months in order to divorce (it depends on the state). Now people get 50/50 custody and let the kids liv ein the house while the parent shuffle in and out. Although divorce is bad this kind of situation can make it easier on the kids. I hope they go this route if they get a divorce.
I truly hope that Radar isn't right. It would be very sad indeed. What bothers me more is, where did they find this out? Spies in editing perhaps?http://www.radaronline.com/exclusives/2009/06/radaronlinecom-world-exclusive-jon-kate-announce-divorce
Here is the Radar article that you guys are all talking about in case it's pulled again...:"It’s official. Jon and Kate Gosselin will announce on Monday that they are divorcing, a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com exclusively.EXCLUSIVE VIDEO INTERVIEW: Kate's Brother Says "Their Marriage Is Over!"The source says that Kate recently met with a divorce lawyer. Another source told RadarOnline.com that the couple had previously agreed to separate by July 15.But that timetable has now been pushed forward.PHOTO GALLERY: Kate frolics in her bikini on her recent beach vacation.TLC released video earlier Thursday teasing that a major announcement was coming. And while many have speculated that it centered on the couple splitting up, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively that the marriage is over and Jon will file divorce papers next week.The stars of Jon & Kate Plus 8 have unwittingly used reality television to broadcast the reality of an unraveling marriage. And they’ve done it to record ratings this season as media frenzy around the battling couple has grown in recent weeks, including this past weekend when Jon and Kate spent their 10th wedding anniversary apart.EXCLUSIVE VIDEO AND PHOTO: Jon Gosselin Moves On To New Woman (Hailey Glassman)Kate previously took the sextuplets on vacation to North Carolina without Jon, who was accused of having an affair with Deanna Hummel. Her brother discussed the relationship publicly in a tell-all with Us Weekly magazine.Jon and Kate were photographed together Wednesday for the first time in a while.But they have been talking divorce for quite some time, the source told RadarOnline.com, and the decision was recently finalized to announce it.After being caught with Deanna Hummel, Jon was then spotted with Hailey Glassman, the daughter of Kate’s plastic surgeon. Sources have told RadarOnline.com that their relationship is ongoing."
I really really hope this isn't true! So sad if it is.
oh no i hope radar is wrong:( i hope that they are announcing that their taking a break from their show to concentrate on themselves or something, but it doesnt sound likely.... it would be such a shame for them to divorce, they once had so much love and really adored each other in older episodes, i was hoping that they could rekindle their love somehow...:( i love happy endings...
In looking for some answers to what the episodes are being switched to, I saw this on TV Guide. You can also take a poll there.http://www.tvguide.com/News/Jon-Kate-Make-1007074.aspx"But before jumping to any conclusions, let us remind you the network ordered 40 episodes for the season back in May — doubling the previous season's order."
I would take Radar with a grain of salt... especially if this is all coming from Kate's brother who has sold Kate out before. I would find it hard to believe that if they were getting a divorce, they would make an hour-long episode about it. I think it would be too raw and painful. I am thinking that they are going to announce that the show is going on a summer hiatus or something so that the family can work on it's issues. At least, I pray that is the case.
I'm so confused. Is Radar Online reputable or not? I was under the impression that it is the equivalent of a tabloid magazine. Aren't they the ones that Jodi and WhatsHisFace went to?I sadly think it is divorce myself. Those poor kids. So much for all the promises they made each other and their children.Very sad.Now I'm curious as to what this means for the children and the show. I wonder if it will be joint custody. I wonder if either parent will want sole custody. I wonder if that means the one that gets custody will have to be "home" all the time or the other will fight them on that because now they want to have a "life" too.I wonder if the kids have a preference, or will be given a choice, as to which parent they want to live with. I wonder what happens if some kids want the mother and some kids want the father. What a messy situation. I wonder if the divorce will get ugly. I hope not. If so, I also wonder if footage of the show will be taken into consideration, as well as pics the paparazzi have taken. Just so much to consider in this situation.I could be wrong but it seems to me that Kate enjoyed her "traveling" and "work" and now Jon is enjoying his "freedom" and "man time". I hope one of them wants to stay home with the children. How will this work? I'm afraid those children will be getting more nanny time than anything. I hope not. The whole reason they wanted to do the show was to have their memories on video... some memories... sure there were good times, but now there are the bad times on there too. And also for them to have the ability to travel as a family and to have a stay-at-home parent. Now what? Whatever happens I just hope the children are happy and have at least one parent that is a constant in their life. Hopefully even two.
I have an issue w/the radar wording that says TLC unwittingly filmed the unraveling of the marriage. TLC is partly to blame! They knew before anyone in the public that things were not going well. They have used the implosion of this family for financial gain. Why doesn't SOMEONE (TLC, Jon, Kate) see that it is time to STOP filming and start focusing on pulling this family back together?
If Radar Online is right and they do head toward divorce, which I'm hoping not, I wonder if the ratings will begin to die off. I loved watching it mainly because of the kids and Kate, but it just won't be the same without J&K's interactions together as in happier times. I just hope this so-called "source close to the situation (presumably Kate's brother)" has it totally wrong just because they want to stir up trouble.
I hope Radar is wrong, that whoever told them this info is lying, ugh I hate that we all have to wait 'till Monday to hear what's going on from Jon and Kate. I'm so impatient!!!!!!!!!!!!!I hate the tabs, I hate the online tabs, they put all this stuff out there and it's like you look at this family and how we've watched them this whole time and it's now a possibility that all these tabs will be proven right. I really hope it's NOT true that Jon's filing for divorce next week, that his eating-out with the Glassman chick was nothing more than what others are making it to be.I wish Monday were now, that it will be announced tonight, I really hope they aren't divorcing, I don't want to see that happen to those kids who were told just last summer that mommy and daddy are going to stay together forever...
The kids are going to have a hard time with this and I think they are going to feel let down cause they were just promised that their parents would be together forever that was only 10 months ago. I fell bad for all involved.
schmecky girl I saw your post on the other thread. If you don't want to be attacked and have intelligent conversation go to Moon's site. I won't even go to GWOP anymore. At least at moon you can deal with intelligent people
It's all very sad. I'm hoping against hope that the announcment isn't a divorce but it seems very likely. I feel bad for Jon and Kate but mostly for the kids. Jon and Kate are each responsible for the choices they made in their marriage, but I think the media vultures and the jackals online and off have made their contribution to the destruction of this family and the solid life of eight little kids. They have stalked and preyed on this family until they got the desired results. I don't get how they can live with themselves. But then, I'm a normal, sane person who doesn't delight in the misery of others. They'll pay for what they've done in some way.
First of all, if their source is Kevin, then I think the article is likely full of hooey and shouldn't be believed. However, if it does turn out to be an announcement about their relationship status, I would hope that it's just a separation and they wouldn't pull the plug completely until after the show has been off the air for a while and after they have gone to therapy.I think, like so many people, Jon and Kate each brought a lot of personal baggage into the marriage that didn't get resolved before they tied the knot. They were so young! The brain doesn't even stop growing until 25 and by then, they already had 2 kids! I would hope that they wait so they see that problems that they (Jon especially) are blaming on the media exposure of the show aren't the only ones they have and are willing to work on the deeper problems in their marriage. No one is perfect, but I believe you have to earn your way out of a marriage, especially when kids are involved and that takes time and therapy. But, if it is a divorce announcement, it's sad, but I guess none of us should be surprised. It will once and for all prove that Jon and Kate are just like any other family and are susceptible as everyone to the 50% divorce rate in this country. Even though I don't think it will end the paparazzi hounding them, I hope the announcement is just that they are taking a break for a while to get counseling in private and that, when they're ready, they'll be back.
GosselinFan1:I agree with you that it seems the media may have had a part in it, however, I think it was already happening way before the media sunk their teeth into it. We saw it start going downhill in Season 4. I noticed Jon started shutting down during interviews. He barely spoke. By season end he had already been seen out partying with college girls, etc. I feel that had to be after their marriage was "over". Even Kate admitted it was over probably more than six months prior to season 5.Personally, I feel that we fans of the show would never have known the truth if Jon and Kate had been more discreet. Well, Jon actually. I think TLC would have continued to show them as a family and just "explained away" all the times they are not together, etc if they could have gotten away with it.
Oh, this is so sad.. I hope but I know they will get along for the kids... maybe somewhere is this mess they can work things out in the future. In all those clips they are watching each other.
Kates voice sounds chocked up and sad its really sad whats going on in thier family, esp. for the children.
They are not divorcing, I can just feel it. I bet their quitting the show. As I much as I love this family, I hope they do quit and I hope they find themselves and each other. Good luck to them!
Gosselinfan1 I couldn't agree with you more.
I don't know if anyone knows but E! has a show on (its 12:30 a.m.) its called jon and kate separate lives. I really hope that they stay together. I want this family to make it. To survive this.
I know their marriage wasn't perfect and they had their issues like we all do, but what went wrong so quickly? I mean, the Hawaii wedding vows wasn't that long ago.... They moved into that house and Kate starts the book tour and things start to fall apart....
Remember the last episode at the end of season 4? Jon said he was sick of the spotlight, and seemed genuinely irritated with the whole thing and wanted the show to end, but Kate said she loves it. So maybe this is the main thing that led to their separation.
I feel like it's going to be a divorce announcement, sad to say. I've always loved the show, but I wish that they would stop the show and work on their marriage and family. nothing is more important than that and I wish they would see that. The book deals will always be there and there are always jobs in nursing and IT. But, i'm basing my thoughts off of a limited tv show and i don't know their hearts. It's so sad. :( I really hope things work out for them. What's even worse is all the people who are rejoicing in their failure. Instead of wishing them the best, they are truly reveling in their demise. kinda scary if you ask me. what kind of lives/legacies do such hateful naysayers live with thoughts like that? ouch.
I think I'm having a harder time dealing with the break up of this marriage then when I was 7 years old and my parents told me they were divorcing.
If they do this ratings hype to announce on national tv that they are getting a divorce to bring peace for THEMSELVES, I will no longer watch the show and I would question whether they truly have any faith in God left at all. WHERE IS THEIR FAITH IN ALL THIS????? That is a huge reason I watched this show to start with...and it appears to be sadly lacking at this point.
I'm hoping for a "hiatus," and then the show will come back twice a year for "updates" on the kids and Jon & Kate, and that they're still together. THat way, Jon gets more of the privacy he wants, and Kate still gets the show that she wants. Maybe then they can work on their marriage and family without all the cameras around, and the P-people will lose interest and go away. It can't be good for the kids to live under this cloud of indecision and tension. I just hope the decision they've made is the right one.
I think a) there getting a divorce or b) there cancling jon and kate plus 8. I think b, because I think we would know something about the divorce by now, don't you? I really hope it's nothing big, I just wish everythink was the way it was last year for the Gosselins,sigh.
Poor Carla...people have posted some really awful comments on her blog site.
The haters are rejoicing because they think the had something to do with Kate canceling "The Healthy Kids Expo" In Canada. Well I called personally today and spoke to the girls from The Baily Group who is now organizing it.Kate had signed on months ago for this event. After issues with its planning, a group of Women from The Baily Group took over. The women no longer had the same lineup and needed to take the direction elsewhere. There was NO nasty public outcry of any kind. They wish to stress that it has NOTHING to do anything other than not having access and wanting to give the family the time it needs in the Fall.The trolls gloating like they think they got her off the venue is false. She is working on now scheduling more Southern Woman's show dates, and I am double checking those before I post them and as they become available. And since they read this site everyday, (a little obsessively I might add) they will have no problems passing this along!
It is hard for me to say this. But i think it is time to stop the show, or at least the seasons. Just like maria said they could do a yearly update. In the clip j&k keep looking at eachother when the other one isn't looking. They must still have feelings for each other. at least i hope they do. They are such a cute couple. They just fit together. They understand eachother and I hope that they haven't lost site of that. I am pulling for them!
They could be just separating and stopping the show for a while. I hope they don't just jump to divorce so quick. That would be terrible for the children. They have put to much into that family to quit. If they are interrupting the season for an "announcement" it could be anything. My guess if they will take a break to see if they can ever work it out again. If they do annouce divorce I'm sure Cara, Mady, Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah, and Joel will surely thank their dear Aunt Jodi and Uncle Kevin for having a hand in their parents divorce and their family breaking up.
In divorce, I've heard it said that there are no real winners; each family member loses something, so I don't know that this would lead to the kind of "peace" Kate is referring to. If she is, then she means closure to this situation so they can all move on. Although I personally believe that true and perfect peace only comes from doing and being in God's will. Because at one time they had their faith in God, I hope and pray that whatever decision they made or continue to make they've considered that.
Maybe when she says "us" she means the whole family and maybe the announcement is that they are not going to do the show anymore so the whole family can have peace?? Maybe then they can work on their marraige, lets hope for the best.
http://www.abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/story?id=7880671&page=1It doesn't sound like they will be canceling the show.
NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! This promo makes me very sad...http://watching-tv.ew.com/2009/06/jon-kate-jon-and-kate-gosselin-divorce.html
New clip of Monday night's episode on radaronline.
So, question: how does radaronline get the video for Monday night's episode???? From TLC? The only clip on TLC right now is the 30 second promo.
people.com is reporting jon has been apartment hunting in NY yesterday. :( Divorce is devestating, and it seems especially devestating seeing all they've overcome.
While Jon & Kate are making some "life changing decisions," are you helping or hurting them and their children? Better yet, what are you doing for your own marriage? Refocus the chatter to praying for this family, their healing, and find resources and tools to help strengthen your marriage.JonandKatePrayers.com
From People Mag today (they're usually pretty reliable)... not a good sign...Jon Gosselin returned to the home he shares with wife Kate and their eight children in Wernersville, Penn., on Friday – after a day of apartment hunting in New York City. A source close to the situation has confirmed to PEOPLE that Gosselin, 32, checked out property at Trump Place, a complex of high-rise residential buildings on Manhattan's Upper West Side. "[Jon] has been going back and forth to New York a lot" a source tells PEOPLE. The search for real estate (first reported on Gawker.com) comes in the wake of news from TLC that Monday's episode of Jon & Kate Plus Eight – the reality show that made Jon and Kate Gosselin famous – will include a major announcement about the future of their family, fueling speculation the troubled couple may part ways. "There's definitely a lot of drama going on but from my understanding he's doing fine," the source said. When Jon returned to the family home on Friday, he was driving a black BMW and seen smoking at the side of the residence. Kate , 34, left the home early in the day,while the kids were spotted playing in the yard, according to an eyewitness.
Radar has a new clip and it shows them basically saying they are moving on... Why do I feel so let down? Here's the clip:http://www.radaronline.com/exclusives/2009/06/breaking-news-kate-gosselin-we%E2%80%99ve-been-dealing-long-time
i was able to get on sixgosselins.com but nothing has changed on it.
I really hope the announcement is them quitting the show!
It looks like Jon is smoking now, http://www.radaronline.com/exclusives/2009/06/jon-gosselin-caught-smoking-his-joint
Many of you have been e-mailing me as to why your posts have not been showing up. Unfortunately due to some nasty people that live and breathe my site, this blog needs to be moderated. If you send a link that I haven't checked, it will be deleted until I can confirm it's OK. That's why your post was deleted when someone else s with the same info link is on. Thanks for understanding.If you feel your post was deleted in error, feel free to re-post and I will consider it.
It's highly unlikely that they will be cancelling the show because there have been cameras spotted recently. I feel it will be that they are separating especially with Jon looking at aprtments. It looks like they are going to lett he kids live in the house while the parents shuffle in and out. This is what many do now a days in the world of joint or 50/50 custody, which is probably what would happen if there was a divorce. The kids are ones who will suffer in the end and hope Jon and Kate handle it with love and try to parent as a team still for the sake of the kids. Bitterness leads to heartache for the kids. My dad was always trying to turn me against my mom. I hope Jon and Kate can avoid this because it caused me a lot of trouble.I am gonna be an optimist and say that even if they get a divorce the kids will be okay and survive as a team. Good luck to them and Jon and Kate.
Smoking now? And wearing Ed Hardy shoes on top of those ridiculous hoodies he wears? Maybe it's for the better that they separate. Kate deserves a real man and Jon deserves what he wants. A young hot girlfriend, no wife and no children. I can't believe they let everyone win when everyone said this would happen.
What gets me about all this...okay alot gets me about all this...but one thing that really sticks in my craw is on the "vow renewal" special, how many times did we hear that these two parents would NEVER EVER get divorced. Now with this new season they've basically told the viewers that they are splitting up with each episode. Especially the first one where Kate said "This might be our last family picture". This from the same woman who claimed divorce was not an option?
I know what its like to almost get divorced. Thankfully, my husband and I came to our senses and worked through our differences and we are happy again. My point is, I recognize the "dead-eyed" look on their faces in the video. I think this is a terrible mistake for their children. Especially if reports are true that Jon is moving to NYC. Those kids need him involved in their daily lives and I find myself feeling angrier than I thought I could at a couple I don't even know. I guess it's due to falling in love with their kids over the past several years or so. If everything they do is with their kids' best interests at heart, wouldn't they do everything in their power to overcome their problems??? =( And, does Jon have TWO DIAMOND STUDS in his ears like the footballers wear???? WTF? I wish he'd take those things out, and get his butt back home to Kate and those kids. Grrrrr
awwww poor kate looks so sad in that new video, you can see the tears in her eyes, i feel so bad for her... i no everyone changes sometimes but why did jon have to they were so happy before!!! i just seems like he has completely fallin out of love with kate...well thats the impression he seems to give..either that or he is past caring.The reason i loved this show so much was because there was so much love in the family and was soooo heartwarming to watchReallyyyyyy hope it will be a good announcment on monday... think postive people!!!!
I just caught the beginning of Extra tonight and they showed 2-3 different clips from Jon and Kate's separate interviews that will air on Monday. Jon mentioned something about the pap's constantly being around and Kate said something about hopefully 'it' will bring peace to everyone. They said Jon had been in NYC looking for an apartment, Kate had a new SUV delivered in a huge commercial semi-truck and that was about all I caught. They gave 3 'guesses' of what the announcement will be and they're nothing that hasn't already been discussed here.
OK I just saw the clip from radar and I am now officially bummed. I just can't believe that less than a year ago they were renewing vows and telling the kids they'd be together forever and now this. Man, they really do need to quit the show to save their family. They really need to get back to their faith, I pray for their children, broken homes suck. this will affect the kids the rest of their lives.
Jon Gosselin: 'I Have Changed'Posted by ExtraTV Staff on June 19, 2009 9:19 AMThere is a video clip to watch, also.Here's the link: http://extratv.warnerbros.com/2009/06/jon_gosselin_i_have_changed.php---------------"It's no secret that the Gosselins are going through a tough time in the marriage department, and now Jon and Kate are tackling the tabloid drama head-on! In a clip from Monday's "Jon and Kate Plus 8," a distressed Kate says, "We haven't really known where we were going, but we've been dealing with this for, um, a long time."Jon is rumored to be having an affair with a 23-year-old teacher, and Kate has been linked to her married bodyguard. Jon tells the cameras, "People think I've changed, and I have changed, but I'm now the person I know I am." Is that clear? Kate takes a deep breath and reveals, "We can't go back now, we can only go forward. And that's what we're going to do, and we're going to learn a lot going forward. And I know that we'll all come out of this on the other side, um, hopefully stronger, better, wiser."Moving out could be an option for Jon. "Extra" has confirmed Jon has been checking out apartments at Trump Place in New York City.Attorney Lois Liberman tells "Extra" divorce for parents with eight children would be extremely difficult. "Each parent can't handle all eight at the same time, and require assistance from the other parent or nannies," and Liberman adds that Jon and Kate might divide the eight. "For them to split the kids in some sort of access schedule would allow each parent to get some meaningful time with the children. You've got a very big brood here."TLC's "Shalom in the Home" host Rabbi Shmuley thinks there's hope if the cameras are turned off. He says, "It can only be saved if they go off TV... they have to make a choice."
Haven't posted in awhile because there was way too much bickering going on, but Personally I feel that the announcement will be that they have been through some troubled times but that they are going to work things out, possibly counseling or something else, no seperation, no divorce. Now you might think I am a starry eyed die hard fan of the show who couldn't possibly think they would get a divource. I am not, I feel that when all this tabloid stuff happened (right around when promos for the new season started)TLC wanted to push the envelope so to speak, and it worked they got monster ratings. Think about it, except for Jon saying "he never cheated on Kate", neither one really confirmed or denied anything, just the two different people comment, nothing really concrete at all. But once the hoopla was over and the ratings sank back down to normal TLC and J&K probally felt that it was time to go back to normal which means family outings, trips, J&K fighting. I told my wife most of the first few shows (regardless of when they were taped) were spot on how they really are, two people who have two different personalities but fight. I think the big announcement will deal with some sort of counseling and then the whole marriage problem will go away as will the media attention. If I'm wrong I'm wrong won't lose sleep over it though.
Baby Mama, If my post about watching Extra tonight and what they said on the show makes it to being a post there needs to be a correction. Extra DID say Kate had a car delivered in a big semi and showed it on their street, but I've since seen the preview for Monday's show and the truck they're talking about is the one that delivered the Crooked Houses. I've never believed everything I've read or heard about anything in the newspaper, tv or magazines and this is a perfect example of the need to take everything we hear from supposed 'reporters' with a grain of salt until we can confirm it for ourselves. Sorry for the mis-information - I was just reporting what I'd heard and unfortunately that info was wrong. I do believe I need to stay away from those tv tabloid shows! Thanks - and again, my apologies.
Again, look at the clips, maybe now I am being overly optimistic but the one on rador about them being like this for a while I still think at the end of the show the two of them might be back on the couch. Jon has "found himself" i.e. grew a pair and now things will be different. Who knows.
I believe in "for better or for worse" unless there's cheatin' or beatin'. I'm really hoping that, if the rumors are true and Jon's getting an apartment, that he goes there while there's filming so he doesn't have to be involved since he doesn't want to be. Then I hope they go to counseling and get their relationship straightened out and the filming dramatically slows down after their contract is up. Once a year to catch up would be fine with me. AND the p-people just need to let them be!
I know this will be tough for all the kids to deal with but I can't stop thinking about Joel and how much he adores Jon. My heart is breaking....
According to Rick Garner, there has been 0441929 divorces in the U.S. so far this year. How sad.
Nicole~ I read that too, and yes its really sad. Jon in the past few weeks is really changing, and it appears to be an early mid-life crisis! I honesty do not think it was pot he was smoking. But the earring and the new look is A LOT to take in. Coming from Trump is literally an over 3 hour commute and I do not know what is going on with him.I still have concerns as to how Radar online seems to get all of this info. Esp. since TLC is probably editing as we speak (if you read my previous posts sometimes those guys in editing work though the night). The reason why I don't post info. right away, is that lately things change so quickly. Also I'm not going to put up every article or news post out there since its in the thousands if you Google them. I post only about things that I feel are truly relevant to the fan site.
And I also would like to say how pissed I am that people have attacked Carla on her own personal blog! I cannot fathom how sick and crazy a person must be to put such trash on her site. The trolls have gotten so nasty I don't know what kind of people they could possibly be to hurt someone they do not know like that. You never realize how truly unstable some people are. The fact that they congregate on hate sites only fuels them more. I hope Carla knows that I am truly sorry for posting that. They live and breathe to take things from my fan site and twist them.
Monday, June 22 - 60 minutes - Changes are happening at the Gosselin home. Not only are the kids getting new play houses, but bigger changes are happening in their lives. After much discussion, Jon & Kate are ready to make an announcement about the future. June 29 - 60 minutes - We re-visit the story of Jon and Kate Gosselin and their two sets of multiples. How did they end up where they are today? Newly discovered home video footage of Jon and Kate enlightens viewers on the struggles and triumphs of this entertaining family.
Just because you change, doesn't mean your marriage has to end. All couples change when they have children. You work through it. I'm just so tired of hearing how this is all Kate's fault and Jon is an angel. He's being a huge douchebag, IMO.I just know the show will never be the same and Monday's episode might be my last. It's still my opinion that they should end this disaster of a show soon and relieve their children of the hateful paps.
Schmecky - your 3:14 post...I'm with you, word for word. I don't have any faith any more in anything J&K OR TLC, for that matter, have to say. Were they EVER the family that I thought they were, because I sure question that now. A part of me is still wondering whether this is real or scripted by TLC for ratings...either way, J&K have lost all credibility. How in the heck are they justifying playing this all out on tv? HOW?From the time I had my first child, I have always told myself that no matter what hard times there are in my life, as long as I have my family, nothing else matters. On November 8, 2007, my niece, only 11 yrs old, passed away suddenly from an unkown heart condition, and our family will never be the same. There is so much I would like to say about her and the story of her passing, but my point is this: she is PAINFULLY missed by every single person in our family. I don't even know how her mom and dad go on. I think of her...fifty times a day, probably. I still cry at least one of those times that I think of her. It's hard for any of us to imagine we will ever see a day that we don't cry because she's not here with us anymore. DEATH is the only thing in this life that you can't change. Everything else is a choice. And p.s. There WAS an SUV delivered to a parking lot somewhere, rather than at the dealership, for Kate, to try to avoid media. How many cars do they have NOW?
3KMOM~Thank you for letting me know about the new episode update. I did put it up on the site. Things have been moving at such a fast pace it's hard to keep up! I am questioning how they will handle the June 29th episode...And to those that have lost the faith..don't. I hope and pray that their choices they are making are truly what's best for their family. It will be interesting to this will pan out. The Mother's Day episode is now gone. I wonder how they find a place to fit it in or if we will ever see it.
I have been thinking about this new Monday night episode for the past several hours. I was first thinking that yeah Jon and Kate will be announcing a devorse but then I got to thinking... I live on the west coast and have never been to NYC but to live in Manhatten in a penthouse apartment just doesnt seem to make sence to me. Its hard for me to emagine a father that has been so involved in his 8 childrens lives to decide to get a small apt (compaired to thier "mansion"), without a yard in the middle of a city, to me it just doesn't make sence. Yeah the kids would have thier yard and room to run in the country but if I was a 5 year old I would want room to run. A penthouse apartment doesnt seem like the right choice as a parent when you have 24 acres at home. Also, Jon has said numerous times he loves Park City. I watched one interview found online stating that he would love to get a place in Park City but Kate would never allow it. Jon has gone to Park City twice this year. The interview I watched Jon was also giving "hints" to something in the future that involved going to Park City often. Manhatten seems like a durastic change for a father of 8 children, this is all my opinion. I hope they stay together and work things out I hope the show is going to end.
I have a question. When Jon took Cara snowboarding and he went on the bobsled. Did anyone else notice the woman that got out of the front of the sled? I would have to look it up but at the time and another time watching I asked myself who is this other woman with him/them..
Tired Mama-Kate's new car holds 8 pssengaers an is probably more fuel efficient and lets face it looks better than the big blue van. Maybe they got rid of the white van and the blue van. With new car she can have one vehicle rather than two. However, I guessing here, but it DOES hold 8 pssengers I looked.
Rabbi Shmuley from Shalom in the Home needs to help the Gosselins! He was practically a miracle worker on his show (which I miss!)... if he can help some of those people, he can TOTALLY help Jon & Kate get back on track! And I don't care if he does it on camera or off... it just needs to be done!
Amanda~ I know you were asking about the twitter accounts. I'm concerned to post them because I do not think they are real. For the record, I never have and do not post on Just Jared, or any hate sites. People pretend to be me. Don't beleive any of it, I no longer post on any sites, so if you see my name, it's NOT me. Trolls think they are super funny, when they are actually really pathetic.
Kayla - you are correct, the land cruiser seats 8. Kate + 8 = 9. What was she thinking and who will be left behind? It briefly crossed my mind that maybe Cara would live with Jon but I can't see them splitting the kids up.
I too will be watching the episode on Monday. We now have ream of data that show while there are individual cases that are positive, divorce damages children for the rest of their lives. Period. It does not make it better for the kids. Kicking out the cameras and making your marriage work, that makes life better for the kids. I like Jon and Kate, and would love to have them for neighbours, but their choices this past year have been eratic and destrutive. I think that is what happens to many people when thrust into the fame spotlight (great new work on this in the book Fame Junkies). As Christians they committed to one another til death do them part (I write as a professional Christian theologian, fWIW), and now they have to decide - do they value the life of fame or their commitments. It really is as simple as that. I am with everyone else here that I pray they will decide to do something to get through this - even a seperation til shooting ends would be positive I think - and that the divorce rumours will die and two years from now we can find them happily married and taking care of their 8 kids out of the spotlight. But i guess I am part of the problem - I think I have seen every episode since the start, and I'm a guy!
Hi everyone, this is my first time posting about this subject so forgive me if it's a bit long. Like everyone else, I am very saddened by everything that has been going on with Jon and Kate these last few months. I have been a fan of the show for a couple of years and was always rooting for this family. What they were faced with was not easy and while those kids are truly miracles and blessings, Jon and Kate were barely kids themselves when forced to undertake such a huge responsibility.Hereinto lies the problem in my opinion. I don't think Kate's crabby attitude drove Jon away or caused him to allegedly cheat. I think the main issue between these two is their completely conflicting wants and realities. Jon has been a stay at home dad for a while now and he has made it clear that he is not happy doing this. Kate on the other hand is now traveling all over the place on her book tours and speaking engagements and is absolutely loving every minute of it. Another conflict is the fact that Jon is over all the publicity and wants his private life back where Kate loves the spotlight and has said she would love for the show to go on as long as possible. Among all of this, I don't think Jon and Kate are stopping to consider each other's feelings. It seems Kate definitely isn't. Jon practically screamed how unhappy he was at the end of season 4 and in the very next breath, Kate just oozed how thrilled she was with her life and what she was doing without even acknowledging how unhappy her husband was. When asked about season 5, Jon hesitated and said they would see where things would lead where Kate made it no secret that she would love there to be a season 50. During that hiatus, I don't think either of them did try to sit down and work anything out. She was gone so much and I believe he just rebelled and went out and started doing crazy stuff like partying at all hours with kids way younger than him. Then came all the rumours and anger etc. possibly pushing things to a point of no return. I wish these two would have taken the time at the end of season 4 to take a break and work on fulfilling each other's needs rather than just chasing the gravy train. Yes, I realize that this show has enabled them to have a less stressful outlook for the kids future but at what point is it too much of a sacrifice to make? I am not passing judgement on these two like many others though because unless you've walked a mile in their shoes, you really can't talk. None of us knows what's deep inside of their relationship despite what the tabloids, countless "inside sources" or Aunt Jodi and Kevin say. As far as I am concerned, all of that is just gossip unless it comes from Jon or Kate's mouth directly.Regarding Monday's announcement, the internet world seems ready to confirm it is a divorce. I hope beyond hope that it is not. It would be great if they come and say that they are going to take a break from the show becasue their marriage comes first. Unfortunately I don't think this will be the case. One article said that they will announce a trial separation and seek counselling in the meantime and reconvene in the fall to see whether they can make it or not. Although this is yet another "gossip" article, the glass half full side of me wants to believe this over divorce. Many people have also said how TLC usually hypes things to look really dramatic and then it doesn't end up being what we expected but in this case, I tend to disagree. The sneak peek of Kate talking showed her on the verge of tears several times and I doubt she would be crying over where the crooked houses were supposed to be placed.In any case, my prayers are soldily with this family and I don't even want to think of how devastated those kids are going to be should their parents divorce. It will be such a shock to them expecially the twins coming on the promise of them staying together forever after the vow renewal.I guess there is nothing left to do but wait and see now. Thanks to anyone who read this far and sorry it was so long.
an eight passenger vehicle will still not hold everyone, even w/ out jon. but it would be close. ya the pent house thing is odd.
Kayla said... Tired Mama-Kate's new car holds 8 pssengaers an is probably more fuel efficient and lets face it looks better than the big blue van. Maybe they got rid of the white van and the blue van. With new car she can have one vehicle rather than two. However, I guessing here, but it DOES hold 8 pssengers I looked.-------------------Toyota's website says that model vehicle has an 8 person seating capacity - meaning the driver and 7 passengers total. This means the whole family can not fit in the vehicle. A driver and only 7 of the 8 children could occupy it at once. It doesn't seem to be a practical vehicle to me, but I'm not the one driving it. Was Kate able to take all 8 children with her in the white van - I really don't know. Maybe it is just as practical as the white van as far as passenger capacity is concerned. One thing for sure - it is more expensive than the white van!
Sooooo............"No matter what, we're in this together" is bullshit. I figured. I was pulling for this family, but they are giving up too easy. I am////WAS a huge fan. Now not so much. I stopped watching after that train wreck season opener. Be honest with the fans, if it is gone then tell us, we aren't all so stupid we can't see that the ratings are all that matters TLC. Give it to us straight, we can take it.
When she says brings each of us some "peace" that doesn't ring divorce to me. I don't know how divorcing each other will bring each of them peace. And Jon is still wearing his wedding ring (whether he's just waiting for the show to air before he takes it off is possible though). I just hope it's about them stopping the show and not a separation/divorce. They can still show the shows they have taped already I guess. Peace to me sounds like no more camers, no more drama. At least that's what I'm hoping for. We don't know what they are doing. This can all be publicity stunt. No one has any pictures of Jon in NY? NONE?
I'm getting anxious, I wish they would just show it now!! Did anyone see poor Aaden being taken to the doctor? Jon was wearing his usual Ed Hardy clothes. He has to be going through an early mid-life (or late quarter life??) crisis. I mean, no 30+ year old guy dresses like that. I don't even see guys in their 20's decked out in those gaudy Ed Hardy shirts with sweatshirts. If it is, it's like a hat. LOL. Poor Kate. I can see Jon has certainly changed. At least he's wearing his ring, I guess.
There was a posting on TMZ yesterday of Jon "supposedly in NY looking for apartments. The point of their post was that he was still wearing his wedding band. There is a current TMZ posting of Jon taking Aaden to a Dr's office with a boo boo on his head.
Sorry, that pic on TMZ wasn't of Jon in NY. He was at home in PA.
Yeah the land cruiser cannot fit the Kate + 8 so I don't get it whatever.
I just saw on TMZ where Jon spent Sat. afternoon taking Aaden to the dr. Looks like he hit his head but nothing serious. I really wish Jon would stop dressing like a 20 year old.
The more Jon keeps showing up decked in Ed Hardy, they more everyone will say its more freebies. But I heard those people don't give anything free! So I'm leaning towards Jon feeling like he too, would like to give himself a personal makeover like Kate. Wearing clothes like that prob. makes him feel young.And by the way, their website is now back up and running, and NOTHING has changed. It still is saying "Eight Little Faces" will be coming out soon. I REALLY wish it would be updated.
My question is about all the shows on the different channels about them. There is one airing on TV guide channel now AND one on E. How is this allowed? Is TLC really letting these sleazy specials use clips from the show? All the shows are doing is retelling the ridiculous tabloid rumors. It just makes me so mad!!
It's pretty obivous that Jon is going through a mid-life crisis, I mean he's smoking, dressing younger, going out more, and etc. And another thing, I just hate how people are coming to conclusions that the are already divorcing, can't they just wait til tom. and get the real facts?!?
Why are so many people critiquing Jon's choice of clothing? He's not the only one dressing younger these days; Kate seems to be wearing her fair share of mini-skirts and baby doll dresses.Besides, I think there are more important things to focus on besides what they CHOOSE to wear. Snarking like that belongs on other websites.
I truly think there are going to stop filiming. my dvr can show what is coming up in two weks, and on the sixth of july does not show any new Jon and Kate plus 8. So i wonder if they are removing the show?
Yeah mine too; there's no new episode scheduled for July 6th, there's not even an episode of J&K in that time slot for that date.
