So! I admit it, I watched last night's Very Special Episode of Jon & Kate + Eight, wherein Jon and Kate reveal that they're divorcing. BIG surprise there, eh?
And Kate's going on and on about the breakdown of the marriage, and she said something like, "and I had half a day where I let myself fall apart and hyperventilate", and then she got a good night's sleep and decided to get a divorce.
And I thought, oh honey, I've spent half a day falling apart and hyperventilating over a CAR REPAIR, and that's all you could spare for dissolution of your marriage?
But anyway, what's really driving me crazy about the show is all the product placement. First it was Emeril, then it was those motorcycle dudes, which honestly, I did not watch much of either of those episodes, because I do not like Emeril OR the motorcycle dudes, and last night it was the flippin' goddamn playhouses, which if anyone had said "Crazy House" or whatever the hell they were called ONE MORE TIME my head would have exploded. I would lovelovelove to know how much those playhouses actually cost, because I'll bet they're pretty pricey. And those kids got FOUR. Then again, Mom and Dad are splitting up, so it's time to haul out the really EXPENSIVE toys. Paid for by the show, of course. And I'm sure the Crazy House people gave them a bit fat discount, seeing as how their product was mentioned about every three seconds during last night's show.
Oh! And Kate's outfit when she was on the Loveseat of Confession? Did anyone besides me think it was a little inappropriate to wear a push-up, strapless top to emphasize the boobage? No? Just me? Okay then.
Frankly, I always leaned a little bit toward Jon's side. But after last night, I think they're BOTH kind of self-absorbed jerks. I just feel for those poor kids.
