If you had any faith that Jon and Kate Gosselin had their children’s best interest at heart, throw it out the window. Despite the fact that their marriage is in the process of being dissolved, they are going to continue doing the show. Last night they announced that they would be separating, but would continue to film with the kids. They each will do separate activities. I wonder if they told the children about the divorce before they filmed the special.

Those poor children will be able to watch their family fall apart forever. Because the camera crews will be there to film every second of it. Haven’t Jon and Kate made enough money to go away and allow their kids some privacy at this devastating time? I guess not. When they are adults the children will probably all say that they would have rather of had an intact family instead of all the freebies and perks of fame. I can’t wait until Mady is old enough to write a tell-all book.

So shame on their parents, especially Jon who wanted more of a private life. Now that he has escaped out from under Kate’s thumb he is singing a different tune. He will still be on our television screens every week. Jon has become a douche bag going through an early midlife crisis. He is driving a convertible built for two, chasing girls a decade younger, and moving to the big city.

Kate issued the following statement: ”Over the course of this weekend, Jon’s activities have left me no choice but to file legal procedures in order to protect myself and our children. While there are reasons why it was appropriate and necessary for me to initiate this proceeding, I do not wish to discuss those reasons at this time, in the hope that all issues will be resolved amicably between Jon and myself. As always, my first priority remains our children.”

Let’s go over what Jon did over the weekend. He was apartment shopping and spent Father’s Day with the kids. Kate was out to protect her money is what the statement translates to. And TLC was hyping the announcement since Friday. So somebody is lying when they decided to file for divorce.

This marriage was probably doomed to fail the whole time. Jon seems like he would have been happy with just the twins, but Kate had to keep going for fertility treatment. And Kate spent a lot of her time treating Jon like he was her ninth child. If there hadn’t been the pressure from having too much money, it would have collapsed under the weight of not having enough. But it so sad that it will be on television for the whole world to see. And even worse that it will be there for the Gosselin children to see in the future. Sometimes the fame just isn’t worth the cost.
