Jon and Kate Plus 8 – Time to Call It Quits?

[singlepic id=77 w=320 h=240 float=left]On May 14, 2006, we were introduced to the Gosselin Family. We watched the hour long special which revolved around the daily routine of raising twins and sextuplets. The show was all about the children. Nearly one year later, the first episode of the reality show series aired. It was still all about the children, but through short clips of interviews with Jon and Kate, we slowly became aware of the parents’ personalities. Kate clearly wore the pants in the family while Jon appeared to be more passive in an attempt to keep things running smoothly in their home.
Three years later, the show has done a complete 180. Instead of it being all about the kids, it’s all about Jon and Kate. The kids are merely there for “filler” between solo interviews with either Jon or Kate, who discuss their failing marriage. Between the end of season 4, which aired at the end of March, and the beginning of season 5, which aired at the end of May, the media had a field day with the rumor that Jon was cheating on Kate with a 23 year old teacher. Shortly after this rumor started, there was a counter-rumor that Kate was having an affair with her bodyguard. Who really knows if either rumor is true, but clearly their marriage is in trouble. As a matter of fact, on May 27, 2009, Showbiz Tonight broke the news that allegedly TLC is helping Jon find an apartment that is “camera-ready” so they are able to film him in his new home.
The question seems to be this: Is it time for the show to call it quits? Have these children been scarred enough from having cameras in their little faces 2-3 times a week?

Saint Dagame’s Sermon

Greetings one and all please allow me to introduce myself.  I am Saint Dagame, patron saint of reality shows as well as high priest of the Church of Gina Gershon and today starts a new era for the Yak.  This is the first of many sermons that I will be giving to you, my adoring congregation, so remember this day because it will be one you will rejoice for decades to come.

I have decided to make this first sermon about tainting victories.  Did Apollo Creed ruin Rcoky’s title win?  Did the Patriots come up with conspiracy theories when they lost the Superbowl to the Giants?  Did Arnold Jackson make up excuses why he lost his fight with The Gooch?  The answer to all of the above is a resounding no, yet so many of you out there want to taint Kris Allen’s victory over Adam Lambert on American Idol by coming up with crazy conspiracy theories and downright nonsense so I’m here to set you straight.
