driving family and friends away.
I will be very surprised if at least one of those kids doesn't write a tell all book in the future.
It is like anything else, their true colors show after a bit of time. You can only shine a turd so far.

Celebrity or not she is not someone with who I would want to send any time with.

Everyone rags on Jon for having a GF or several. What about her with her "bodyguard?" Is that a gun in your pants or are you just happy?

I like how the article refers to the money she made from her show "a small fortune."

Nobody with eight kids could possibly have a small fortune for very long.

The writing was on the wall with this.

I disagree. A small fortune is quite a bit more $$$, I feel sure, than the average person would ever see. A small fortune is more than enough to provide for 8 kids or more IF one lives a normal life. And still have enough $$$ to put away for college. But the lifestyle Kate was living was not the lifestyle of a mature, intelligent and responsible parent.

What is he doing? Last I heard of him he had some new girlfriend.

Where is her child support?

Why did he leave the woman with all those kids?
Who do you thinks watching the kids now... Jon.

Kate drove him to leave and look for greener pastures, he never bailed on his kids.

Well, there is always "Playboy". Kate could possibly work her fame there. Did Nadia Suleman pose in Playboy? This month's issue with Lindsay Lohan sold out.

She will probably start peddling her kids out weekly to "The Star" and "Enquirer". No doubt. Jon seems silent on this, as long as he gets his cut of the money. They really blew their deal on TLC. If only Kate could see what a shrew she was...it really became sad to watch. Reality tv, watch us completely spin out of control...

Or Mel Gibson.

I'm sorry there's a lot of deranged psycho's out there.

I, personally don't get where all the venom comes from - but I don't blame her one bit for keeping the bodyguard - check out every single thread on city data about Kate (including this one) and then tell me she shouldn't be scared.

I certainly would be if I was her.
Yeah, not too long in the future those kids are really going to be resentful over what she did to THEM. Why she had more than she could reasonable care for? How selfish and irresponsible she is/was. How dysfunctional this is becoming for a family situation. I guess she will send them all out to part time jobs as soon as she can.

Great question.

I guess they did not air ALL their family laundry.

If she had a small fortune, it would be in the millions, no?
How much, do you think?

I read the articles referenced in the OP - it's insane stuff. Very nasty and not properly sourced in itself.

But ho hum.
