It’s been a few weeks since we have gotten to spend some “TLC” time with the Gosselins.
I just got back from a weeklong vacation and I couldn’t pick up a magazine, newspaper or turn on a morning talk show without being met with some update on Jon’s love life – and there were a few.
The promos for tonight’s show have Kate attempting to put together a tent by herself so that she can take her kids camping. Very respectable, and I am sure it will be very cute, but I have got to tell you, if this is what’s being offered up as new episodes, I’m not biting.
Personally, I am more interested in seeing how “Jon & Kate” address the constant throng of paparazzi outside their gates. How do you explain to a 5 year old why there are people standing outside of his house screaming at his parents and snapping pictures? I know that these kids grew up with video cameras, but they are not used to paparazzi who often shout things to get a reaction from their subjects.
I want to see how Jon and Kate are helping their kids deal with this from the inside – give us a glimpse of that. Plus, give us some reassurance that those eight adorable children of yours are unfazed by all of this. I’m not a psychic, but I would say if you can do all this, “Jon & Kate Plus 8” will pull in big ratings.
What do you think? Will you be watching tonight?
Be sure to stay with Showbiz Tonight for continuing coverage of Jon and Kate Gosselin – 11pm ET/PT on HLN!
