Jon and Kate Plus an Announcement

By jeannesager |

jonandkatemultipleOh please tell us they’re calling it quits. Not on the marriage – that’s up to them. But the news that Jon and Kate Gosselin have “an announcement” in store for Monday’s “all new” episode has the Web atwitter.

And we’re willing to throw our hat in the ring with Babble writers’ projections. A taste:

They’re moving into the Dr. Phil house! They’re sending some of their kids to go live with Brangelina! They’re happily expecting triplets! They’re adopting from Malawi. They’re reconciling … for the movie deal.

OK – maybe not. Maybe we’re making light of a really sad situation. Sue us, we’re at the same point most of you are . . . sick of hearing the silliness that this whole saga has become. OhmiGod, Kate called her kid “dead meat.” OhmiGod, they beat their dogs!

Now Radar Online claims an exclusive source has told them it’s a divorce that they’ll be talking about on Monday. In that case, we’re simply saddened for them. And hoping this doesn’t mean TWO shows where they’ll famewhore themselves. Other bloggers are speculating about a pregnancy, a vacation, a NEW show.

How about we just say ENOUGH already Jon and Kate? Even as commenters here and on other sites have had the “Kate is a shrew” vs. “Jon is an ass” camps, the common thread has thankfully been a lot of good vibes being sent the way of eight kids stuck in between two parents in a sad situation.

Marital strife sucks. There are no two bones about it. And sometimes, divorce is the best option. Sometimes, a marriage can be saved. But is there anyone left who wants to watch it go down? Like Kate, hate Kate. Love Jon, think he’s a doofus. Then bid them farewell.

    I hope the announcement is “This will be the last show because we’ve chosen to take our lives back from the camera in the hopes of saving our marriage and of giving our children some sense of normalcy. Good day.”
    I can dream, right?

    I’m with PlumbLucky. Let’s face take a set of twins add a dose of sextuplets, two dogs and a camera crew when you are a ripe old age of mid twenty something, and suddenly add money, celebrity and paparazzi tracking your every waking move, it is not going to be conducive to a successful and happy marriage and family life. I agree that if they lose the lifestyle that might be able to salvage the marriage. It would involve kindness, forgiveness and tenderness that I honestly cannot see them mustering for each other, but it is sad to see anyone’s marriage crash and burn. Seeing it in technicolor on television is even sadder.
