One of my favorite shows on television is Jon & Kate Plus 8. After last night's show though, I am so sad for them all for it was announced: Jon and Kate filed for divorce.
What is disturbing to me is how the media/paparazzi is crucifying Kate for being a b****, while Jon's alleged affair barely gets a nod. The reasoning is obvious - Jon cheated because Kate was a perfectionist, nagging, controlling...whatever. That's no excuse in my book.
True, Kate could learn to be more laid back, but in my opinion I think Jon is feeling a little resentful that Kate is out on the road doing book promotions while he's at home with the kids. Like he has it so bad! You know they have hired help, unlike in the early days when Kate stayed home with all eight children when they were really little.
The whole situation makes me so sad. Sad because I really liked Jon and thought he was hilarious. Sad for Kate because I believe she really does love Jon and wants the best for her family. Sad, especially, for the children because their once happy family is being broken in two and their world turned upside down.
I just pray that somehow, someway Jon and Kate can reconcile and begin a new chapter together.
