  1. This is so dishearting. This was my favorite show and I looked so forward to watching each week.They seemed to love each other so much and there were several times that I saw them pray for each other and go to church, I know it has to be hard to have 8 kids and cameras in your face all the time.
    I am just shocked of the idea they cheated on each other. Where did they find the time and Why???? They have 8 beautiful, healthy, children shouldn’t this be enough to keep them together.
    On the show tonight Jon seemed so different– more than Kate– Like he has a lot going on within himself……..You know the kids are always the broken pieces!!!!
    Lord I pray they turn to you before it is too late.

  2. No one should stay together “for the kids”…. yeah, it sucks, but it was destined to be stressful. He has said SO MANY times that he was getting tired of the cameras 24/7, but she refused to listen. I have NEVER liked her at all, and think that she is very self centered and difficult. I am not saying he is perfect, but if you watch the two of them, she treats him like one of the kids. Ridiculous.

  3. It is so sad that more people turn it on because there marriage is crumbling. I’m with you Debbie, let’s pray that they turn to God and work through this difficult time. It is so difficult on the children with split parents. It is truely devistating. They should get the cameras out of there and truely work on building up there relationship and there family. They need to put the pieces together and work on a normal American life. God be with them.

  4. I am not saying he is perfect, but if you watch the two of them, she treats him like one of the kids. Ridiculous. i agree she treats him Like A Kid she Must Learn How to Treat Him.

  5. I feel for the kids.When Jon was talking to one of the girls about who she had invited to the party and she told him a boy,I couldn’t help but laugh when I saw the look on his face but then I was almost in tears when he huged her and asked if she missed him.I thought he was going to cry.You could tell how much he loves his kids.As for Kate I think she does treat him bad some of the time but that doesn’t make it ok for either of them to cheat.I’m not saying either of them did or didn’t.The media is making it so much harder for all involved.I know I heard Jon say he didn’t think he wanted to do the show anymore and she should have stood by him on that.I know if they do split up and she decides to carry on the show that I will not watch.That would just show everyone that the money and all the free things mean more to her then her family.I don’t think Kate is a bad person at all I just think she has gotten caught up in all the glamour and now comes the down side.I really hope that she would leave all the cameras behind and try to work on herself and her marriage and family so they can live the happy life they all should have.They are all in our hearts and prayers.

  6. As Christian’s we need to keep this family and marriage in our prayers, and most importantly pray that Jon and Kate would direct their lives back to the Lord first and formost. He must be the 1st priority in our lives and He will direct our paths according to His purpose and will for our lives. Jon and Kate are human beings that are not perfect, BUT who say that they are believers in the Lord and need to get back to what’s most needed, necessary and the reason for their faith. God bless and be with you Jon, Kate and Gosselin children. Remember Deut 7:9……

  7. It is just a ratings stunt….

  8. I’ve watched this show over the years, not faithfully, but enough to know that I don’t like what I see. As many have said, Kate talks to Jon as though he is one of the children. Family should always come first; making money should be secondary. It’s obvious that the show has made them successful and Kate has become a celebrity. She needs to put the energy into dealing with her marriage that she puts into her speaking engagements. I believe Jon is tired of being second fiddle and both of them should be focusing on those “Eight Little Faces.” I don’t want to see this marriage end, but Kate sounds as though she is preparing for it…

  9. Kate needs to stop enjoying her new found celebrity and focus on working on her marriage. She’s become full of herself and I believe she is trying to show Jon how she can make it without him. She says her children come first, well I don’t believe her. If that’s true, then she would get rid of the cameras and focus on her children(not Jon as one of her children)and repairing her marriage.
