Anyone else find yourself totally glued to TLC’s John & Kate Plus Eight last night? Was it me or did it seem like Kate was laying it on a bit thick? Did John all of a sudden man up? Where were the kids, & who was that large 400lbs gorilla in the room (divorce, affairs, scandal)
I love this show, and am a regular fan but it seemed like I was watching a totally different family. Yesterday TLC ran a marathon of the show that has been a part of our lives since 2004. In the beginning it was a show featuring this crazy family with eight kids. There was a type A, cold, bossy, but loving mom, A wimpy but devoted father A set of twins & a set of sextuplets ! The show pretty much was the same year after year & those of us that watched, tuned in each week to see the kids & feel better about our load as a parent, our marriage, & our ability to let our kids eat food coloring in a dress (Ok maybe that was just me!) But all in all it was light hearted entertainment. However as more people took notice apparently the fame took over.
We have all heard lots of rumors & you wont find me making any accusations until Kate & I’s coffee date Thursday. (year to be determined) I understand people change but there was a stark contrast even from the shows last season. In the premier of the 5th season all of a sudden There is an overworked scorned wife who lives for her children, and all of a sudden adores their mess & the lack of order in the household. A sports car driving rock star Dad……. And I cannot make an assessment of the kids we saw 4 minutes of There are a team of PA’s & sitters, paparazzi every where , & body gaurds 😉
I am not sure what to think after watching the much anticipated season premier, but I am sure, like any good train wreck I will keep watching. ( I know sounds bad but it’s true & you know it) I hope that they can work it out I know I wouldn’t want my lifes drama to unfold on TLC ….Well maybe if having my life on TLC created the drama & I was getting a fat check?
let me know what you thought!
Would you put your Family on TV for $?
Think you are stronger than them?0
