Jon and Kate Plus Divorce: For Real Nowtoddler-times
OK, so if you didn’t see this coming, you are officially a moron (sorry, just sayin’): Jon and Kate Gosselin have officially filed for divorce.
Toootally not shocked here, but we’re at least a little sad (no, really, we are).
Word has it the divorce papers were officially filed today at the Bucks County Courthouse near their home in Pennsylvania. The legal proceedings came just hours before the Gosselins were set to make their “announcement” to the world about the fate of their marriage (stay tuned tonight to TLC – we’re betting on a ratings bonanza). UPDATE: video of the announcement after the jump.
I wouldn’t wish a divorce on my best friend (and yes, it’s happened to her). So I’m sad to see two people who had to have been in love at one point (we’d hope) come to this. But as a recent study found, staying together for the kids isn’t necessarily BEST for the kids.
What is the best thing for kids to see? In my oh-so-humble opinion, it’s two happy parents. It’s two parents who – even if it’s in moving on – are showing their kids examples of strength and dignity. And what about Jon and Kate Gosselin has been dignified in the last few weeks?
Yeah, that’s what we thought.
So now that it’s here, and it’s no longer speculation (or icky votes suggesting people you don’t even know split up), are you relieved for their sakes?
Because we’re sad . . . and relieved . . . and we have three words left for the Gosselins: GET OFF TV.
