We're not sure what humanity did to deserve this kind of punishment, but a higher power must think we deserve it if rumors of a new reality show starring both Jon Gosselin and Octomom Nadya Suleman are true.
The producers of Cheaters report that Nadya had an "insatiable desire to spend time with Jon and put their families together," and that in turn, they brainstormed a show entitled Jon Minus Kate = Jon Octomom.
We're guessing that's only a working title.
In any case, the show's producers certainly don't think lightly of their idea, or their two stars, who they call "two biggest media sensations of our generation."
We would have chosen other language. But it looks like a team effort between the emotionally abusive tool and human baby factory is at least being pushed.
A better title would be The Reality Show From Hell.
The pitch for Jon Minus Kate = Jon Octomom, obtained by one network it was pitched to, begins modestly: "Mohammed and the Mountain started a religion."
It gets better: "Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris started a Yankee dynasty. Lennon and McCartney started a music revolution." Then, the big kicker (pause) ...
"Jon and Octomom start a whole new reality in the world of Reality TV."
The pitch claims the show's so revolutionary it will rival American Idol in the ratings, but "there will be no rival in the shocking nature of this pairing."
If there's any silver lining to be found in this, it's that everyone can hate these two. Just put the Israelis and Palestinians together for a showing and they'll emerge best of friends, united in the hatred of a common enemy.
Who sucks more?
