Jon and Kate break my heart.

First of all, I want to say at HUGE thank you to everyone who as commented and emailed me this past week. The blogging community is an amazing thing, and I thank God all the time that all of you are out there. Also, I want to clarify something- I don’t think it was a bad thing that the church acknowledged the mom’s on Mother’s Day. I know the being a mom is probably the hardest thing I will (hopefully) ever have to do, and I think all mothers deserve a round of applause (and maybe a keychain, I guess.)

While I am a huge media whore, sometimes I REALLY hate how they sensationalize everything. Right now, I’m talking about Jon and Kate Gosselin. In case you’ve been living under a rock, you know that there are rumors going around that Jon has cheated on Kate. And then there were some rumors that Kate cheated on him with her bodyguard. And some people are saying that their marriage has been over for a long time, and it’s all just a ruse for the cameras. I say that this all makes me sick.

I think what everyone is forgetting is that there are CHILDREN involved! I saw an interview with Kate on Larry King (I think) and she said that the kids weren’t being impacted by all of this.

I call a great big BS on that junk.

Look, the twins are 9. Small private school or not, they are going to hear about all this crap going on in the media. Not only are they going to hear about it now, but it’s going to follow them for the rest of their lives! This stuff is in print. It’s not going to just disappear. Someone needs to take responsibility here and stop instigating the media circus around this family. The kids didn’t ask for any of this, and it’s so unfair to have them pay for the actions the adults in their lives have chosen to take.

That’s all I have to say about that.

I totally agree with you! I am also mad at both parents for putting themselves and their children out there for so long. This is not an excuse for the media but it's a well-known fact that the media gobbles this kind of stuff right up... I just wish Jon and Kate would have known better and protected their kids.

I also completely agree with you on this!!!
And I hate it for the kids.. I hate it for Jon & Kate... I wish they would step out of the spot light and get their marriage and house hold as a whole where it should be:(

They may not realize it But they need some serious HELP now more than ever!!!

I agree, as well! I hope it's all just stories and it isn't true, but still! It's going to effect the children, no matter what. And that's really unfortunate.

I completely agree - no matter what age - it hurts a child... and they ALL need to think about that.

I 100% agree! I love John and Kate and all of their beautiful kids, Its awful that the media has to put all that junk out there. They are heartless and don't really care that what they say no matter how outrageous really does hurt that family.
