I know that she is not popular & from the looks of the previews has had a complete melt down on the final shows, but I have kind of gotten attached to the kids and would have liked to have seen them grow up for a few more years.

I have only seen one or two shows when Jon was on it but I have to say I feel sorry for Kate. She may come off as abrasive and not very lovable but she is doing what she has to do to take care of all those kids. What would any of us do in her position? I don't think she could ever depend much upon her husband to provide.

To me, her loss of income from the show is the worst part of the whole deal.

I haven't watched the show in quite some time but I did enjoy it when it first came on TV. It was lovely watching the children grow and see their personalities unfold. However, right before Jon left, it had become very commercialized. It was too much about Kate, as well.

I recently watched it, after tuning out months ago. She is much worse. She reminds me of a very selfish person, who thinks she is someone very important. She reminds me of a teenager that feels that she is entitled to everything going her way. Very immature and childish and not very good entertainment.

It is time for the show to end. I'm sure there will be a new show from time to time, showing the kids and how they have grown. I would enjoy seeing that. I will not enjoy any show that is all about Kate and I'm afraid that is what the network has planned.

They aren't ours to watch. I like them too, but let them attempt to live a normal life for a while.

I haven't watched since Kate's true colors came out, but I admit I'll watch the RV/melt down episode coming up.

I am sure that they will have specials from time to time. It hasn't been fair to the kids to grow up on TV. It is about time that they learn that it isn't normal having photographers and cameras following you all the time. They have been through enough and I think the show should have ended a while ago. I loved the show at first but must admit that I feel sorry for those kids. They may have money from the show but they have sacrificed a lot.

Maybe Jon wasnt the perfect husband but she treated him like a child and I dont ever recall seeing her be nice to him. I was amazed that he was able to stand her for as long as he did. She's such a mean person outside that she must be so miserable inside. I pray for her children that they can all get the therapy they're obviously going to need after being raised by her.
