    Kate has about as much talent as a tomato. Talk show host fits her well with that mouth that never stops. She should thank Jon because if it wasn't for his antics she would not be on any t.v. show news broadcast or anything. She says she hates being in the public eye but shows up on everything possible . I certainly will not watch any talk show with her in it. I'm sick of her already. She exploited her kids for money now she has Jon to exploit. What a role model she is...She says she's worried about supporting her family. She has made more money than 5 families put together. Hey Kate take a look around at what's happening to thousands of families in America. Stop whining If you can't support your kids why did you have them Get a life and get off the t.v.Does she think she is the first woman to go through a bad divorce. If she thinks that's traumatic try being the wife of one of our armed service men. Now those are stories worth talking about. and also worth our caring and compassion.

    A couple with children is getting a divorce. That's as American as apple pie. Americans are a weak people always looking for the easy way out of a bad situation. That's why your country is falling apart. You have no guts and no spine.

    Fascinating how many of you have such strong opinions about their marriage, parenting, divorce, finances, and general priorities ... but can't spell their names correctly.

    I Love Kate, perhaps people should stop casting stones upon her and worry about themselves. People that like to "bag" on others just don't want to look on the inside at themselves. They don't like what they see so they like to put others down. I'm sure these are the same people who say they are for Peace and Love

    Excuse me but I also think JON needs to go home and spend some time being a father instead being out with different women, pierced ears and Ed Hardy tshirts.

    Neither one of them are home with the kids. She's on her celebrity circuit. Talking about Jon and how innocent she was in all this. Jeez, watching the show before was all about her control and yelling at him.
    He should keep a low profile.
    But part of me thinks all this is just for publicity, so they can get more
    ratings and money.
    They are just crazy and need to focus on the kids and not themselves

    Of cource it is a man to say Kate needs to go home and take care of her kids. And how would you like her to feed them and cloth them and send them to college. Come ON!! People we have brains. USE THEM!

    Yes we can all see that she has 8 children to take care of! Could you imagine if she wasnt a organized freak. Try having 8 children.. then I think u would have a right to talk..! What would you do to support 8 children.. some mothers sell their bodies.. some mothers sell drugs.. some mothers stay on welfare.. while other mothers get up every morning and go to work.. and this is her work. Yes she was a control freak on the show. but she kinda had to be for the sake of her children. I really think that a women go into this Biatch mode to protect their children and keep her family together. Yes she went overboard and hopefully she will work on that in her next marriage if she has one. I pray that she gets some help on the way you should treat a husband. Jon on the other hand.. is showing us all that maybe he is a brainless idoit.. just like you said. Have you not seen everything he has done since the divorce. Most fathers that I know, that get out of a rough marriage, they go out and do everything to make their children comfortable in their new living space. So that when they come visit it is comfortable for them. Jon needs to grow up, he is a FATHER of eight.! He is a FATHER before anything. I dont think he is showing the world this! He is showing them he likes to party, sleep around, drink, etc... When does he show the world.. no when does he show the CHILDREN that everything he does is for them. When we become parents yes its nice to get out and have a good time. But our first and number one pirority should be our Children!!!! Everything we do in life they learn from US! I dont think giving a lesson on how to juggle multiple women without each knowing is the lesson he should be teaching his kids!!!

    I think John needs to grow up and get a life (a mature one) and not act like some teenage frat boy who didn't have any behavior training! He's an idiot. Don't know why Kate married him in the first place. She's obviously the smarter of the two!

    When you can't think for youself (Jon) than someone else has to set you on the Path (Kate) - not brow beating – guidance instead. When Jon grows some balls – maybe he can act like a real man.

    You know people are sure quick to JUDGE Kate for her behavior towards Jon. But looking at things NOW Jon's behavior speaks volumes to me. Kate IS taking care of her kids and herself. I haven't seen her out partying, drinking, and making fool of herself. Jon on the other hand, well, his actions, case closed.
    Kate may have said things to Jon on camera that weren't appropriate but no one knows what goes on and went on off camera between them. I'm looking up to her more and more daily she does have morals that are going to given to her children. Before everyone judges people you might want to take a look within yourself. No one is perfect but everyone of us is human.

    I think Jon needs to do the same thing and concentrate on raising his kids. Don't get me wrong they both should move on with their personal lives, but we all NEED to know about it. They both claim they want privacy but every 2 seconds they're on another show talking about their relationship. If you want privancy...SHUT UP!

    I also predict those kids will be going to community college b/c they're parents will have blown through all of their dough! LOL

    Jon & Kate keep begging for privacy, and yet all they both do is go on talk shows. They think they're the only couple with kids whose ever gotten divocred. They both need to just go away!

    Kate Gosselin or whatever her name is, is not a celebrity. She is disgusting and I'm angry that everywhere I look, she and her whack haircut are staring at me in the face from a magazine. I hope Kathy Griffin eats her for lunch.

    Had anyone ever thought of this important piece of evidence – IF you say Kate beat up on Jon during their marriage – my question is What Was in if For John to have made him stay? That's the million dollar question. It wasn't the children that made him stay – because the children are still there, and he's gone. Something to think about. No one made Jon stay – except Jon.
