Celebrity Kids Multiple Births

Jon and Kate Plus 8 Returns Tonight. Will You Watch?

Tonight, for the first time since June 22 when the couple announced they were separating, Jon and Kate Plus 8 will air on TLC .

In that time, Jon has been to France with Hailey Glassman, dated Kate Major and moved to New York City.

This is definitely not the family we met 3 years ago. They use nannies when the other is not around and only appear to be having a good time when they’re filming.

TLC president Eileen O’Neill spoke last week about upcoming changes for the show.

“Jon and Kate have never said they were perfect, which has made them relatable and created an undeniable connection with the viewers. We will continue to capture this family’s journey in a respectful and sensitive way.”
“You’re still going to see two parents that love their kids, but you’ll be seeing them parenting separately,” she went on. “You’ll see what it’s like when Kate has to put up a tent for a backyard camping experience by herself. Or, you’ll see Jon trying to cook up a pizza for the kids.”

Viewers may even see Jon and Kate date, O’Neill said.

Added O’Neill, “As far as new people and places that may be cycling into Jon and Kate’s life, we are taking it on a case-by-case basis.”

I guess viewers will have to figure out why they fell in love with this family and see if the new format fits into their values.
I’m still not sure why the ‘show must go on’.
Will you be watching?
