Jon & Kate announcement: 06/22/09

Reports are saying that Monday's episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8 is being preempted for a special one-hour announcement that will "affect every member of their family". What's it going to be?

They all do the world a favor and kill themselves on live TV?

Government-sponsored mind wipes and placement anonymously within the population, hopefully.

Tonight on a very special "Jon and Kate Plus Eight"...economic hardships will force the couple to make a "Sophie's Choice."

Maybe she is pregnant again. Could be from an affair. New title Jon and Kate + 8 and Bob + 1.

I'll go with seperation. I've never watched one second of this show, but from what people have told me about it and what I've read, dude needs to break away from her.

I'd like to see Kate on MILF Hunter before she kills herself.

IF this is true:

Wouldn't that be wonderful?
A public announcement that will be filmed and on tape forever for their children to enjoy in the years to come. Something they can share with their own children when they grow up.
Happy Father's Day Jon!

If you truly don't give a shit then why did you open and read the thread? Never mind that you actually took the time to post a response! You obviously have some interest in the topic, regardless of your response.

Personally, I don't particularly care, but I know that my wife likes the show so I thought I would see what the latest was.

My hope is that they quit the show and work on their marriage rather than exploiting their family for monetary gain.

They could probably only milk one more season of this if the above is true.

Re: Jon & Kate announcement: 06/22/09

I'm going for quitting the show. I think they might be announcing that they are backing out of their contract in order to give their kids a more normal life (as much as that can be at this time) and to give Jon and Kate time to figure out what went wrong. I really hope it isn't divorce.

From hearing everything about what type of person she is, she probably signed on for 5 more seasons.

Re: Jon & Kate announcement: 06/22/09

I don't watch but I was wondering how far in advance is this show filmed? I'm getting the sense that the episodes are very current, like one or two weeks ago.
