There’s trouble in paradise. Jon Gosselin from TLC’s cash cow Jon & Kate Plus 8 was caught dancing and getting drunk in bars without Kate. Pictures and the speculation of a divorce in the near future are spreading across the Internet like wildfire. To make matters worse, in the season finale preview of TLC’s Jon & Kate Plus 8, Kate alludes to trouble in their marriage. During that segment, both look uncomfortable, and Jon looks bloated and a bit out of it. Could it be that Jon and Kate are getting a divorce?
Towards the beginning of the year, local rumors started spreading about Jon showing up solo at several bars and picking up girls hours away from his new home in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania. Then Star magazine published a four-page story on Jon’s missteps, including pictures, which can be seen here.
According to the March 16th issue of Star Magazine, he told some of the girls, “We might be getting a divorce.”
Apparently, his mother is embarrassed and outraged, and knows what’s going on. Several reports say he has been living with his mom since early February. During a recent trip to a bar with his mom (of all people), he made a fool of himself by leaving the bar with a woman. Then he dumped her at another bar and left her crying. Star Magazine quoted his mother as saying, “What are you doing? Stop acting like a fool. I will not cover for you!” At least someone in that family has some sense.
Regular watchers of Jon & Kate + 8 know their marriage has been rocky for quite a while, if not years. Kate Gosselin’s abrasive and belittling attitude is more than most husbands could take. For whatever reason, whether it had to do with the children, religion, or low self-esteem, Jon has stayed with Kate. Now, it seems like Jon Gosselin might have finally had enough.
“We’re kind of at an odd place, but we’re working on it,” said Kate during the Jon & Kate + 8 season finale teaser. Her body language almost begged for Jon to be anywhere but sitting right next to her. Jon said, “It’s really difficult for me, on my end,” which alludes to the truth behind his wrong doings…other than the pictures of course.
The ultimate question is, will a divorce mean the end of Jon & Kate Plus 8? This seems highly unlikely, as Kate might have a cow if she has to come down to Earth with the rest of us and live a meager lifestyle once again. Who knows. By next season, the show might be called, Kate and Kate Plus Kate. Oh right, the show is about the children too. How could I forget?
