Jon & Kate +8
Does any one else watch this show? If so what are your thoughts? Are the exploating their children by putting them out there the way they are. I've watched and still do with mix thoughts. Kate is so mean to her husband the way she puts him down, slaps him across the face, screams at him out in public (the toys r us show). The tups are almost or are 5 still wearing bibs sitting in high chairs and still useing sippy cups. You never see them feeding the kids a hot meal, it's always something served on a paper plate. Few crackers, little bit of fruit, yogart and a box of juice.They had to move because there home wasn't big enough (yeah right). You no longer see any of the friends / family what there was on the shows anymore, anymore it seems to be all about Kate. Is it just me or is she just down out hateful. IMO these people are out for the almighty dollar and anything esle they can get for FREE on the backs for their children....Yes some may agree and some not but this is just my thoughts....

I don't watch the show, but that's because the whole premise sounds exploitative (is that a word???) to me. I have enough train wreck in my own life. I like something a little more new-to-me and interesting than somebody else's train wreck when I watch TV.
However, from observation of other reality shows, they often focus on the 'cast member' who is the most unpleasant because people seem to find a villain more interesting and tune in to see what dreadful thing they are going to do now. Sounds like Kate is this show's Omarosa

I don't think they would have enough money if they didn't. I can see all sides. I agree Kate is a little too cross. BUT I love the show. Watch all I can. Those kids are so adorable. I would rather Kate would be a little less cross but it's what you get.
I love watching the show and find it fascinating how this family manages to make it work. I don't think anyone has the right to judge Kate and the way she raises her family. How many families are there that have twins and then sextuplets? What's wrong with serving children on paper plates? Maybe not the most environmentally friendly way of serving food, but a heck of a lot easier on Kate. Maybe Kate doesn't always speak to her husband in the kindest ways but I don't think she's the only wife to have ever yelled at her husband. I currently work as a live-in nanny and imo, the Gosselins are more of a family than the family I work for. The Gosselins sit down at the table to eat dinner and spend time together. I wish the family of four I work for would do as much!
Well being hugely judgmental about all reality TV I think any parent who's happy to prostitute their family for the $$s and fame brings the judgment down on themselves. And if they're even happier that they get greater fame and $$s for being nasty and horrible then that's pretty much all i need to know.
