Last Night on Jon and Kate

Jon and Kate: Plus Eight is really starting to bug me. I was at first annoyed because other than the season premiere, the two have not discussed their marriage issues at all. And other than awkward moments apart on the couch, there really is no mention that this isn’t the happy family that TLC once wanted to portray. After the premiere, I chalked it up to the fact that they were still airing episodes that were taped in March, before their marriage issues became public knowledge. I thought maybe they were just trying to keep it under wraps, for obvious sakes. But last night’s episode was aired after the news broke that they are an unhappy, controlling woman with a meek and mild-mannered man.

But we got nothin last night. Except for Kate being her usual bitchy self and Jon making inappropriate jokes about how he needed some guy time and how he hated living at his house, you would never know that there was anything going on with these two. Jon went to American Chopper, which is another TLC show to have a bike built for him while Kate took another Chopper guy, Mikey, stayed with Kate, helping her with the kids and eventually going to the spa. I guess he just needed to really see what a day was like in the life of Kate.

At the end of the show, the Chopper guys delivered Jon’s bike to the family themselves and while Jon was very thankful and talked about how good it looked, Kate was not so much thankful with the present the boys brought her. The present was a pink scooter to which Kate replied, “That’s a mess,” and told everyone – including the people who worked so hard on it – that she was going to give it away to charity, the Ronald McDonald house, in fact.

This episode only showed how flawed this marriage is and how it should be working towards being over, not having meaningless and unnecessary trips to salons and bike shops. This episode also made it quite clear to me that the only thing Jon and Kate are interested in is making money and sopping up all the freebies that they can from doing the show. I once thought it was only Kate that was interested in the money but that was when I really thought that Jon was going to put an end to this whole ridiculous charade.
