I was a little distracted during Jon & Kate Plus 8 last night. No, the phone wasn’t ringing incessantly; nor was my Blackberry vibrating with e-mails. It was something else, and it took me a little while to realize what it was. It wasn’t the fact that the couch was gone; but it was something about the new interview set up. Then it finally hit me; there, perfectly framed over Kate’s shoulder in the bookcase was her book, “Eight Little Faces." Can you say “product placement” people?
It’s as if the producers had a checklist of what they wanted to accomplish and sat with their trusty little clipboard with an editor as they went through the show checking things off of their lists.
Truthfully, it was tiring to watch. If I hadn’t been watching for work purposes I probably would have changed the channel.
What did you think? Will you be tuning in again next week?
For all of the latest news on “Jon and Kate” be sure to tune in to Showbiz Tonight at 11pm ET/PT on HLN- Don’t miss it!
