Jon and Kate Plus 8

Does anybody watch Jon and Kate Plus 8 on TLC?? My kids and I have been watching faithfully since episode #1 and I have even got Kate's book "Multiple Blessings" that was released a few months back. My kids love it, and one day wanted to know something about them (I can't remember what) so I googled their name to see what we could find out. Well, to my surprise there are tons and tons of websites and people and bloggers that just despise the two of them, their show, and TLC for airing it. There were so many horrible things said about them that now when I watch the show, its almost not the same for me. Every time Kate says something in the back of my head I think of what these websites say about her. I don't want to continue to spread the rumors by elaborating or make you begin to think differently about them, but I was just outdone that there was so much negativity about them and am wondering if I am living in "Bazarro World" and am the only person that loves them or do you like them too??


  1. That's too bad. I feel when people are looking for the bad, they are missing something in their life. When really it's them who has the problem. John and Kate are not perfect, I'm sure they have said or done things that they wished they hadn't done. Isn't everybody like that?
    I like watching their show too.Not my place to judge is the motto I try to live by.

  2. I love Jon & Kate too! It is the one show that I faithfully watch each and every week. I know that some of my friends and even family don't care for them at all. I really admire and respect what they are doing and how they are going about taking care of their family. My sister recently read the book and she said it gave her so much more insight into their family.

    I'll keep watching with you!

  3. Thanks ladies I agree! You know its like my husband said. Don't get mad because they are making millions just by living their life. If someone asked you to do it, you would too...and I probably would. I love them!!

  4. I haven't really watched the show that much, but I do know there's someone out there who hates everyone on TV! I guess we just have to stop listening to them and try to enjoy it. Easier said than done! :)

  5. I can't say that I've ever seen a show, just a few clips online. But, that is hard when someone plants a seed of criticism about something. Sometimes it's good to be reminded to think critically about stuff, but I'm not sure how necessary that is for reality tv.

    But, um, it's reality tv. So, I guess there's room for all sorts of mistakes and opinions, huh?

    Thanks for stopping by Life as MOM!

  6. Oh no! That makes me sad . I love their show - all of our family watches it. I got their book for Christmas , enjoyed it and came to really see more of who Kate is and she loves The Lord and glorifies Him above all.

    I just found your blog today and I am adding you as a new favorite! It is enjoyable.

  7. I used to really love the show, and I still do watch because I think those kids are *so* adorable! But, in the back of my mind I do notice things that others talk about on these sites and it's made me feel a little sad watching the show lately so I am not tuning in as much as I did. I am certainly not one to pass judgment and some of these sites are flat out hateful.


I love comments and read every one...so thanks so much for leaving me a little note!!
