I will go on record as always disliking this show and I have never watched a full episode. Still I think I am a good judge of character and I can tell there is a total lack of it in all ends. I am absolutely disgusted with this show, the parents, the network – everyone involved.
The only purpose for this show at this stage is money. The parents can’t stand each other. Their families are beginning to turn on them. The children have to live their life on a stage. Yes, the only reasons for this show to go on is for Kate and TLC to make her money on the backs of their children.
An interesting thing about this whole thing is that even though it’s Jon that may have cheated, it’s Kate that seems to come out on the short end of public opinion. She’s comes off as an aggressively ambitious and pampered woman that has pimped out her family for money. I can not imagine what it would be like to married to her. Not that Jon is blameless in all this – he’s spineless shell of a man and just watches as his family is destroyed. Let’s not forget TLC – they had 8 million viewers this past week, their largest ever audience, to watch Jon & Kate squirm in front of them. It’s the same instinct that causes people to look at accidents on the side of the road.
Let me add to this that the Pennsylvania Department of Labor are stepping in response to a complaint about child labor. It’s about time someone with some common sense step in and do what’s right for the children. The children deserve some sanity.
The best thing that we can for them is not watch. It would take away some of the profit motive as well as affording them some dignity.
But as long as those children help puts the family in large house after large house I have to think there’ll be a network broadcasting them and people willing to watch.
