At just 13 minutes in to the special announcement episode, watching Jon and Kate together is painful.
The kids are still incredibly adorable, as always. In this episode, they get Crooked Houses. I would have given up all of my American Girl dolls for one of these. They are amazing. I tried to go to the Web site, but I suppose everyone had that great idea. So it’s not working. Crooked Houses just got the Jon and Kate Plus 8 bump. Look at these, aren’t they just whimsically wonderful?
Oddly enough, each kid was wearing one a Crooked House t-shirt. Can you believe that?! How convenient.
Okay, enough about the houses. That’s not what you care about anyway. After 35 minutes of saying how bad things are, they finally just said it. They are separating. They filed their divorce papers today. The interviews are really devastating, actually. Kate doesn’t want to be alone and she’s talking about how her children are going to be statistics with separated parents. Jon just seems lost. But the show must go on. The show will continue, but with Jon and Kate filming separate segments with the children.
No footage of them telling the children, but I think that’s for the best.
Will you keep watching? Is the charm gone?
