Did you watch the fifth season premiere of Jon & Kate Plus a Few Possibly-Contrived-Infidelity-Rumors-Meant-to-Boost-Ratings 8 last night?
Those that did noticed that Jon and Kate Gosselin didn’t appear on camera at the same time until 45 minutes into the episode.
Once they finally shared a screen together, the pair pretty much laid into each other.
“Slowly, I’ve seen him almost resent the duties [of being a parent],” Kate said to viewers. “I know it’s a lot to take care of eight kids. I’m traveling a lot, he’s frustrated a lot. I think he’s angry at me. He doesn’t really feel great about me.
“Have I been hard on him for almost the last 10 years that we’ve been married? I would never deny that. I’ve always regretted it. Have I pushed him to this? I don’t feel like I have. I feel like everyone is responsible for their own actions.”
Note to couples: when a television crew captures your renewed wedding vows on camera, this is not the sign of a healthy marriage.
Meanwhile, Jon lamented that the series has “become a business” (which paid for their house and almost everything in it, he conveniently forgot to add), while giving his wife a guilt trip for always going on book tours.
In response to the episode, New Jersey’s Star Ledger rightfully called out Kate for her hypocrisy over the paparazzi.
During a voiceover, the diluted, self-absorbed mother mother said she tells her kids to call the paparazzi “the P-people” because “I don’t want them going to school being like, ‘Well, the paparazzi is following us, like, that’s so creepy.'”
Replied the Star Ledger: “What’s creepy is having your children followed around by a camera crew. Any camera crew. Period. It’s exploitation, whatever cutesy name you want to give it.”
Do you think Jon and Kate will get divorced?
