    Default O/T Kate Gosselin

    Hi ladies. I saw previews for Kate plus 8 new episodes starting tonight. What do you ladies think of her having this show and continuing from what they started 6 years ago with their family? Do you think it's run it's course, or do you think she's exploiting her kids in order to make a paycheck?

    i think that if my options were to continue with the show and be able to make organic tomato/onion salad with pitas for lunch instead of mac'n'cheese out of a box before i go flip burgers at MickeyD's to support my kids, i'd continue with the show. And while i don't understand her perfectionism cleaning, if my kitchen was on TV i might keep it cleaner too, and i don't blame her for wanting a higher quality of life for her kids than any other job she could get would provide at the moment.

    She just rubs me the wrong way personally. She treated Jon like a dog, and they were living a lifestyle that was beyond their means. JMO. It all came out in the divorce. It's just a sad situation.

    i agree they were living beyond their means, but like 90% of the country is too, its expected.

    while i agree that their divorce and the situation is sad, i didnt know or see her on TV before twins and sextuplets happened so i kinda think that she's just Fing going crazy with that many kids! she just wanted one more! but there are moms who have more kids, not all the same age, that aren't crazy, or even some moms who had quads that handled it much better than she does. She's kind anal about some things.

    but even if i dont think i'd like to be her friend in real life, i cant fault her for wanting to make money on TV because its so much more and can provide things for her family that other jobs couldnt. like private school.....

    that might be because i've been so broke for so long that we put groceries on the credit card or didnt have fresh fruits and veggies and i hated not being able to feed my child high quality food. myself- whatever (well, if i hadnt been pregnant i'd have figured that) but if i cant get oranges for my child or her favorite "brocki" which is broccoli it really makes me feel horrible.

    so i cant blame her for wanting the money.

    Kate rubs me the wrong way now too....I used to love Jon & Kate plus 8 but now that it's just Kate plus 8, I end up fast forwarding through most of the show cuz she just bugs me. She just acts so high and mighty now. The kids are still cute though, I just can't stand it when she talks lol

    I probably WON'T watch it this season

    I havent watched since right after the divorce came out. She bugs the crap out of me now. Trinity used to love watching it because of the kids. I wont watch it. I cant stand how upity she is and how she treats people.
