So last night, I saw a couple of episodes of Jon & Kate Plus 8 on TLC.
I’m sure I’ve seen a few episodes of this before, but I couldn’t remember anything about it.
My wife had it on, and since the freshly-delivered pizza was in the same room as the television, I watched about 45 minutes of it or so.
It was very disappointing.
Without knowing what has actually gone on in the past (both on and off-air), and too lazy and not caring enough to look it up, I was struck by one thing.
Kate Gosselin seems only to care about herself.
I know they are going through some tough times, but Kate was all about “me, me, me.”
This is a sample (paraphrased) of how the conversation went when she was talking to the producer (or audience, or whoever she is talking to when she looks at the camera):
“I want to do this for the kids. I’m so busy with work. I’m on tours all the time. I’ve written books. I go to book signings. I travel around the world. Etc. etc.”
Even she’s at home, it’s all about her.
The show should be called Some Guy & Kate & Some Kids & more of Kate.
The other thing is how they live. I’m sure they were given a lot of things. They have a huge home, a bus with a driver and they travel all the time. But Jon doesn’t work, and I have no idea what Kate does.
It just boggles the mind.
