It's a reality show. It's put out there for those who enjoy watching it to talk about the good AND the bad. If they felt the same way about people butting out they should stop filming the show. Simple as that. THEY CHOSE to put themselves and their children in the limelight. You can't have your cake and eat it too.

I wish I could afford fancy vacations and a million dollar home. Maybe if my wife goes to a fertility clinic and has a litter.....

This is a fine tv show. They do lots of travelling, more than i would want to with that many children. I have kids and it is no picnic travelling with them. John had family in Hawaii and that is why they went there to get married again. If I was given a free trip to visit some of my family I had not seen since i was a child, I would gladly take that trip. Connecting with family is very important.

But it seems that Jon and Kate have shut out their extended families. There seem to be no grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc around. There is a strange absence of extended family with Jon and Kate.

If you don't like the show and/or the Gosslings then turn the channel. That's the beauty of modern technology. You don't even have to get up to do it. Push the button on your remote and watch something else.

My wife watches it. I do leave the room anymore and do something else.

How do you know it isn't the other way around?

It wasn't Kool-Aid that they drank it was Flavor Aid. And there is nothing wrong with using the term drinking the Kool-Aid. It that is the worst insult someone can give I wouldn't complain. I have been accused of a lot worse lol.

I don't watch for Jodi, could care less if she never appears again.

The gum show actually soured me on the show. I thought it was pretty low the way TLC edited the show. There were things said that didn't need to be shown and by way of editing probably sounded worst then they were.

They did this with the Roloff's as well.
Matt has stated many times about how things are cut and edited, not necessarily in order.
