Once, this reality TV family of ten captured the hearts of television audiences across the country. But once fame went to the heads of parents, Jon and Kate Gosselin, their appeal began to lose its luster.
An overbearing Kate quickly wore down our nerves and for a while, Jon appeared the sympathetic half of the twosome. However, once the couple’s marriage began to crumble and Jon rebounded suspiciously soon post-Kate with pool parties and chasing 20-something tail, that sympathy began to fade.
One thing is certain, although both parents claimed to want to protect their children from the prying eyes of paparazzi, they sure do love the spotlight. These two popped out more “exclusive” interviews than they did babies. Thankfully, TLC nipped that shit in the bud.
The divorce itself went pretty quickly, but then there was the matter of missing money. And it was also revealed that Jon could give a run for her money in the verbal abuse department. But not to fret, we suspect he’s getting what he deserves.
