Most of you have seen that US weekly is reporting that Jon of Jon and Kate Plus 8 is having an affair with a 23 year old woman. I know it's true because Us has photos and I believe anything written in People and Us magazines. The Star is another story. Us is always reporting that Kate may be having an affair with her bodyguard.
For those of you who don't have a clue what I'm talking about (like my husband)--Jon and Kate have a reality show on TLC. They have eight children--8 yr old twins and 4 yr old sextuplets. I don't know why this story makes me sad. I've only seen the show a few times. I prefer not to spend my tv time watching the chaos I already have at home. I prefer high society like this. But I digress. It is the same sadness I felt when I heard Nick and Jessica were breaking up. I guess I'm just so tired of seeing Hollywood couples not make it.
Apparently, Jon was going out with his friends and hitting the clubs while Kate was on tour promoting her new book and the show. It makes no sense to me. What is a married man (with 8 kids!) doing going to clubs? Obviously, he is looking for something. I have to wonder though, if they didn't have a show, if they didn't have the huge house TLC bought them, if they were just Jon and Kate living in rural PA with eight kids, would he have done this? I doubt it. I think there is a mentality in Hollywood (and I use the term "Hollywood" in a generic way because it happens anytime someone gets some fame or notoriety) that when a person becomes famous they began to feel entitled and sexy and awesome. Look at the guy? Should he be out having an affair? I don't know if Kate is having an affair or not but give me a break!
Thoughts? Are you people still going to watch the show? Set the DVR, at least we have this to look forward to:
