There have been a lot of changes in the last season or two. None that I like. Ever since they started getting freebies-Kate's tummy tuc (I was happy for her on that one), Jon's hair transplant, teeth whitening, Colorado trip, remarriage in Hawaii, Oh and Kate was on Say Yes To The Dress-getting a free dress for the wedding, free washers and dryers and who knows what all, things seem to have changed.( I got A LOT of the information I'm sharing with you from articles on line.)
On the earlier shows there was sweet SIL Jodi who watched the kids A LOT for Kate. She is no longer on the show. It has been written that TLC was going to start paying her but Kate said " No one gets paid but our family." Bye bye Aunt Jodi. Then there was her bestfriend Beth. They say she wrote the majority of the book Multiple Bles8ings. She's no longer around. I know they said Jon and Kate don't have anything to do with Kate's parents and Jon's mom (his dad died). They have NEVER been on the show. It said on line it began when Kate's dad who is a minister, asked the people in his church if they would help the couple. They donated cribs but Kate didn't want them because they didn't match and wanted cash instead.
Now they are ALONE in a new 1.3 million dollar home they bought. Kate is busy peddling the book they wrote. One hometown paper talked about how she came to promote her book and when someone asked her a question she was quick to let them know she doesn't do questions and if you weren't already in line for your copy of the book to be signed not to bother because she wasn't staying long enough.
Sometimes they speak at churches for a love offering. No pictures of the family are to be taken because they have brought their own to be sold at $20.00 each. Oh and cash only.
Kate has always been a bit short with Jon but now there are times she is just plain rude to him. She is so lucky to have this man. He is a great father and maybe more of a mother than her to tell you the truth. She is constantly cutting him down and no one does things as well as she does. Its been hard to watch lately. The show seems to be 75% Kate and 25% the rest of the family.
Don't even get me started on their daughter Maddy. That child needs some serious discipline. She is a bit like her mother. I hate to say this too because I loved Kate before.
And while we're on the subject of multiples, I agree Nadya the woman that had 8 babies already had plenty but she was inseminated with 6 and ended up having two sets of identical twins in the mix. Kate had 6 with no twins so she must have been inseminated with atleast 6 embryos too don't you think? So why didn't anyone question why she was inseminated with so many when they are saying it's wrong for implanting 6 in Nadya?
Anyway, thanks for listening to my drama!! I'm just so disappointed in a show I loved. But I guess it just goes to show that sometimes money does change people. I'd rather have Aunt Jodi and my bestfriend Beth. What about you?
