Dude...(Dude-ette?) You gotta check out this psycho show. It's a psycho mom complaining about everything, busting her husbands you know what's on TV over little stuff all the time. They have 8 kids, twins and a set of sextuplets that are absolutely adorable because the dad is Korean and the mom is Caucasian. You only have to watch for a few minutes to get in the loop and see what we all blog about each week.

I'm seriously shocked at the bitterness here.

Yes, Kate really does seem up herself and bitchy to Jon
Yes, their kids are on TV.

BUT - It seems that they do instill good values to their kids.
For 8 kids altogether, I think they seem like decent little people! Maddie's a brat, but you always have a crab in the bunch...

I'm sure when this show first started, they never expected it to take off like it has. I'm quite sure they have run with it, when a slew of freebies was then thrown at them. I highly doubt they, themselves begged to stay on the air!

Answer this - you have 8 kids, you have a show that wants to tape a couple of specials with you and your family, you wouldn't do it? Having SIX multiples is something of a phenom itself, I'm quite sure that the major lot of you people would not turn it down. It's fascinating!

About the freebies - So, if offered a luxury vacation in Hawaii, to include your WHOLE family, in exchange for the mention of the resort in your show, you get to renew vows, have a good time, you would NOT do it? Give me a break??

You have 6 kids, your stomach is hanging to your knees, you're offered free corrective surgery - you would turn it down?? "No thanks, I rather LOVE my Pillbury stomach, thanks!" Give me a break!

What about all the offers to have all their kids in Crayola, Amusement parks, etc, for FREE? Think of how exciting it all is FOR THE KIDS!

I think you people are full of bitterness, (economy? I dunno), and are lying to yourselves when you call them names and accuse them of anything else other than having their lives taped - for now. (As IF they're going to do this the entire childhood of the kid's lives)!

Lastly - DO YOU NOT REALIZE HOW MUCH MONEY COMES FROM A BOOK DEAL??!!

They probably could have paid cash for this place!

Nail on the head.

They are fortunate, the naysayers are bitter and FULL of jealousy.

They certainly don't seem like WT to me. They are married, they take care of their kids and their house, and seem like genuinely nice people. Would I want 18 kids? Absolutely not! I love my 2, and I'm not planning on having any more. But if it happens, it happens.

As for the fame going to her head, I don't think that's it. She has some serious problems, including her estrangement from her family, that probably need to be addressed in a multiple counseling sessions. And I don't understand how John doesn't stand up to her at least a little bit.

And your comment about "what kids don't need therapy as adults?" I'd say most that aren't exploited like these kids are don't need it.

You're kidding, right? I don't have a problem with them accepting the freebies they've been given...Lord knows I couldn't provide all of things they're getting with what I make. But I also wouldn't ***** out my family to get them either. We all have choices to make, and I choose to not have my family exploited on national TV. But that's a choice that they've made. My problem with them is with her and they way she treats her family.

And a book deal isn't gonna give them that much money, especially enough to pay cash for that house!

Yea, so I've been reading quite a bit, and now my views are quite mixed. More to the negative side...

I wish we knew the truth, because what I am seeing is the start of a new trend: TRYING to have multiples, in order to receive the notoriety that J&K have.

Look at that nutbag, Nadia Suelman, who purposely tried to get pregnant, (and succeeded), with multiples, via in vitro....when she already had SIX kids! I've read that no companies have approached her with any sponsorships or freebies.

You are plain silly. The Duggars had money BEFORE the show! They have several commercial properties for one, so they weren't hurtin'!

Just because you disagree with their religious beliefs, does not make them white trash.

They have been featured on documentaries for YEARS. Have you been in a cave, or perhaps your own little, hypocritical bubble for the past 5-6 years??

I haven't bothered to read much about this woman, but my concern is with the place that she went to for in vitro. She must have had to disclose that she already had so many kids. She should have never been allowed to have the procedure. The doctor who allowed this should be seriously questioned, and so should the facility, in my opinion.

I did read that she is unmarried. Even though I don't like the Duggars either, at least they are teaching values, etc, the first of which is being married before you start a family!

I can't believe this continues to be one of the most popular topics on this forum. The show is not even good. Trust me, I am not judging because I happend to like the "17 and Counting" because the family is so weird.

I wonder if the woman who had 8 kids with invitro will get a show with the other 6 she had invitro while living under her parents' roof.
