I love my trashy mags. Great reading when at the pool with the kids or in my bathroom (where most of the info appropriately belongs). :D
I can't keep quiet anymore about Jon & Kate
I just can not keep quiet about Jon & Kate. I admit that I love the show. I have watched it since day 1, I have all her books and the DVDs and my girls and I often sit down on a Sunday afternoon and watch Jon & Kate Plus 8 and veg.
Kate reminds me of me a bit. I can be very bossy and I’m a perfectionist. I like things done my way and it irritates me when people don’t do it my way. It’s just the way I am. Take it or leave it. My husband and I bicker a lot over stupid stuff. Watching the two of them reminded me of Jason and I sometimes. The show made me feel like I wasn’t alone in my perfectionism and trying to force it on everyone else. Although I’m not as much of a clean freak as she is…wish I was though. My house might be cleaner.
When all this started a few months ago with the accusations, I wondered if maybe it was the way Kate treated Jon that may have started this all. Then I thought, Oh No, is Jason going to leave me too cuz I can be a real b—- sometimes? He assures me that he’s not going anywhere because I told him he gets the kids. HA!
But now that I’ve been watching this whole thing unfold, I think Jon is the jerk. I think he thinks he’s hot sh*t. He seems to have a real chip on his shoulder. He says he doesn’t want to be in the lime light, yet he seems to do things (like go to France with his new 22 yr old “girlfriend”) that draw the lime light to him.
The marks on his finger from the wedding ring are probably still there and he’s off holding hands with some 22 yr old in France. Does he think about what that picture might do to his kids when they are at the grocery store and see Daddy with this new chick? And that leaves Kate to have to explain this all to the kids or try to keep them from seeing the magazine covers. That isn’t really fair to her.
In my opinion (and it’s just that, my opinion because I don’t know them personally and all I know is from watching the show and reading the tabloids), Kate treated Jon the way she did because he is so full of himself and she needed to put him in his place. I think he liked the strong woman at first, but once she because very famous and wasn’t around anymore, he got jealous. He needed someone to think he was “all that & more” so he found himself a young one who doesn’t know any better yet.
I do wish them all the best because I hate to see families torn apart. I will continue to watch the show because I do like the show and yes, the drama makes it more interesting.
What are your thoughts on Jon & Kate? Who is the jerk?
