I saw that TLC is really fighting for another season with 40 episodes this time!! Im really saddened by this but at the same time not suprised, TLC spoiled the crap out of them and now their nothing more than STAGE PARENTS and the children don't have a lot of say (unless others step in). Well, the argument is Jon and Kate NEVER HAD jobs at the time the show started and that they SHOULD keep going on with the show to give their kids some kind of future. Others say its just straight out exploitation but in Hollywood this is seen as normal. So what gives?? Do Jon and Kate move to Hollywood? Should someone crack down on parents using their kids to become famous?? How would they justify it? I still am really saddened but I always worried about the oldest twins as they even said on the SHOW that they never understood why their kids got huge birthday parties, and more than they did and their not far from being teenagers, oh boy. The show has went from Jon and Kate +8 to just Jon & Kate fighting and TLC seems to be banking off of that, what do you think? You think with all this media CRAZE that another season is even possible, that it could go through WITH TRIPLE the amount of episodes as previous seasons?

I really loved Jon & Kate + 8 in its early seasons. It's really dishaertening to see all this drama and media frenzy over them. How did it all start anyway? Why do people want to know every single thing about them now?

I think for the regular viewers--like me--we could see the mess before it even got to this point, but I was crossing my fingers it didn't come to this. I was just floored by the money, 75,000/episode, they were now getting.

the media frenzy started right when they caught pictures of Jon out at a local bar in his hometown, I think what happened is a family member was sick and he was looking out for them but took a night out and the rumors just escalated that he said he didn't even want to be in the show anymore and that kate WAS an anal retentive --B--, but even if he said it he has always said he never anticipated all the publicity because he would not have put himself in that situation if he didnt know. He was probably out with old high school friends because he doesnt get that priveledge at home.
