This is my fault in part - when Survivor was among the first reality shows - i watched and became hooked on reality tv. Reality shows have ruined us - its disgusting and these people need to go away - yesterday!
Wow. No wonder he got that apartment in New York: he knew the money train would be continuing.

I always find it annoying when celebrities (and wanna be celebrities) do everything they can to become famous and enjoy the perks (ie "freebies") of their celebrity then complain when they actually get the attention they've been craving and act like the paparazzi are villains. YES, I don't agree when they surround someone's car and actually become hazardous to innocent bystanders. But there are PLENTY of celebrities (Julia Roberts is one who was HUGE and has fallen out of the endless pages of Hollywood gossip) who manage to do the work they love (acting, singing, etc) and not go to the hot spots where they will be photographed.

I will bet good money that Kate and Jon have celebrity handlers who call in tips telling the paparazzi where they'll be. Do you honestly think they didn't know in advance that Jon was heading to the Riviera or that Kate would be in a bikini on that particular beach? If they enjoy the perks of celebrity (while not actually doing anything to make them worthy of it), then they get to "enjoy" the negatives. Neither one of them is in it for the kids. Kate seems to believe that if she says "I do everything for the kids" enough times, it may actually be true. Perhaps someone should tell her that heading incessantly to the tanning booth is a surefire way to get melanoma and surely dying of skin cancer isn't "for the kids." I can't wait for the kids to write "tell all" books and do the talk show circuit. Now that I would actually watch.
I don't know about handlers, or tips, or whatever, but I think people should be able to go about their lives on their own property without photos being taken w/o their permission.

.....What's interesting, some TRAINED actors have had no luck lunching solo careers after successful group shows (Joey's show after Friends didn't fly), - yet a nobody just might succeed with his own show, doing nothing (no training, no decades of auditioning) but going about his life. His rotten life keeps feeding him and makes him a millionaire... I do hope his show will drive into the ground... After the initial curiosity, how much of his hitting on young girls and rubbing elbows with high and mighty, can one stand?

I have no problems with parents who work (I myself worked full time until my oldest was 4), but not once, in all the daycare/babysitters/trips to relatives homes, did my child ever mistake me for someone else. She knew who her mother was and I worked hard to make sure she received as much attention as was humanly possible. Kate seems to be "making time" for the kids when she's not off self-promoting. Jon...well, he's a waste of fresh air.
she is away making money---i still feel she will be the CONSISTENT PARENT in their life----mr sperm donor is too busy in nyc trying to get his grove back(he probably never had one)

I think it's just flat out odd to eat outdoors all the dang time.
Who the hell has kids and doesn't expect there will be messes to clean up?
OCD people need to either not have kids or learn to deal with the OCD and not have it affect the children.

So this totally changes the subject but since Jon is gone now, how long will Kate keep the dogs around? Especially since anytime the dogs do anything bad she yells for Jon.
