Gosselin Divorse Papers Explained: People.com
Beware of reading too much in to the perfectly standard filings that have appeared so far, legal experts tell PEOPLE. About the only thing that is clear is that the couple, who married in 1999 and have eight kids, are opting for a no-fault divorce – the kind that lawyers like to call "divorce with dignity."
There are two grounds for a no-fault divorce request in Pennsylvania – Kate opted for both, which is also standard – and this is where the language in the filings, first reproduced on TMZ, gets technical and confusing. "The first is called 'mutual consent,' " Gold-Bikin says. That means that if, after 90 days, both sides officially agree the marriage is irretrievably broken, then the divorce can proceed.
The second ground states that if, two years from now, the grounds for divorce still hasn't been resolved by the spouses, then one party can file an affidavit alleging the marriage is irretrievably broken. At that point, the court appoints an official known as a master to hold a hearing and work out any unresolved financial issues.
Bottom line: I have seen WAY too many articles written by people that CLAIM they have been living apart for 2 years now, so their marriage must have been a lie. I wonder if they will retract any of that......

Crooked Houses Score BIG on Jon & Kate, And Now Giving Back: CBS News.com
Turns out, Jon and Kate spread their success around. The playhouses they were talking about are called Crooked House Playhouses.
Skewed and cartoonish-looking, the playhouses feature twisted chimney pipes, catty corner roofs and sloping porches. They look as if a kid had designed and built them, and up until Monday night, very few people had heard of them.
But since the show featuring them aired, the Crooked Houses company has been one of the biggest searches on Google. The small concern of five people -- with only two full-time employees -- has been booming. Crooked Houses has also launched a program recently where 10 percent of all profits from every house sold will go toward underprivileged housing.
As I stated in my comments section, the shows line-up changes everyday. TLC decided just recently to pull the new episodes and save them for August. I decided to keep the descriptions up until I have the exact show dates. Obviously most were filmed prior.
