What is up with the Gosselins?

We all wait in anticipation for tomorrow night’s Jon and Kate: Plus Eight to see another family that likes to live in the world of make  believe. Yes, while we’re waiting for the beans to be spilled on all their marriage problems, Jon and Kate Gosselin are both perfectly happy to go along pretending like nothing’s happened. It’s no secret that these are two people are who are currently feeding off their fame. And it seems now that they might want to keep that fame all for themselves. Yep, I think the new message the Gosselins are trying to send out is, “If you have multiples, watch out! We’re better than you. And we’ll do whatever we have to to prove it.”

First there was the whole media dispute between Kate and Nadya Suleman, aka OctoMom. These two classy women threw insults back and forth at each other and I have to say, I was sort of on Kate’s side in the whole thing. I really thought that Kate probably had enough of her own problems right now and didn’t need to go seeking out more negative media attention. But it seems that’s not the case. Another former employer of Jon and Kate has now come forward revealing the not-so-nice things that the Gosselins had to say about another reality television family, the Duggars. From Pop Crunch,

“Acccording to one former Gosselin staffer Jon and Kate — whose own marriage is hanging by a thread — never miss an opportunity to make disparging remarks about fellow TLC reality family The Duggars.
Conservative Christians Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, stars of the network’s 18 Kids and Counting, are the proud parents of 18 children — with their first grandchild expected this fall.

As fans of The Duggars know, the family includes eight girls and ten boys, each with names beginning with the letter J. While loving, Jim Bob and Michelle raise their kids with a firm hand — all of the children are home-schooled and watch very little television. Internet access is also kept to a minimum in the old-fashioned household.

It’s all very “weird” if you ask Jon and Kate.

“Jon and Kate envy The Duggars because they seem so happy,” the former staffer blabs in the June 22 issue of The National Enquirer. “They’d always say The Duggars are so weird, and there must be something wrong with them. They don’t think anyone can be that normal.”

According to the former Gosselin worker, Jon and Kate often went even further with the Duggar digs.

“They’d say, ‘They can’t be real,’ or ‘They seem like geeky people,’ and ‘They can’t be that perfect. It’s impossible to be that happy!”

That’s sort of sad that Jon and Kate both seem to think that this sort of happiness is unattainable. But, geeky people? Excuse me, when did we go back to high school? And Jon and Kate aren’t exactly all that ‘cool’ themselves. I don’t know, I think being able to have 18 kids and still be so ‘impossibly happy’ is a pretty great and cool thing. I don’t think it makes you geeks at all. And just as a side note, this week also marked the 10th anniversary for  Jon and Kate. As we all know, that will most likely be one of the last ones that they celebrate. I wonder how many years the Duggars will be celebrating. Looks like there may be something to being ‘geeky’ after all.
