Hold on, First off, yeah Jon and Kate both need to see a therapist and both need to see a professional who can help them positively co-parent. He may have given up rights in exchange to not having to pay child support, but think about how much child support for 8 children would cost, especially since she was insistent on sending them to a private school! Can’t really blame him, though if you think about it that was a sneaky part on her end as well. Secondly, she has blasted him TONS of times on tv both while they were married and after, something that tells me that she too id full of hate. Both of these people are guilty, but I feel that she is a little more so due to the fact that she enjoys the attentions she receives as a single parent.

I think their bitter, bitter divorce has adversely affected the poor kids far more than being on reality TV. And I personally call BS on Jon being sooooo concerned about his kids being on TV – he gave up his right to protest his kids being on TV in exchange for not having to pay child support in the divorce. What a lovely, caring father. This is just them exchanging jabs, as usual. What a trainwreck of a divorce those two had.

Jon is too full of anger and hate to be a responsible father. So far he has only managed to harm his own children with his feelings.

I don’t think the twin were trying to diss there mother but more like they were to afford to speak. One because Kate was with them during the interview and they didn’t want to say anything that she would get offend by. Two because they were not sure of what their mother would have said or done at that moment. My heart goes out to the children they are in the middle of everything and probably have no idea what to think. The Twins on the other hand are more aware of what’s going on and might be overwhelmed by everything that could be another reason why they weren’t talking as much.

They did another interview on the View and did much better. Very happy and intelligent teens. No one should ever question them about the divorce and get that personal but they do but they both handled it very well and said they “were only 9″ so they did not know much about it.

Kate does a good job and people need to let her along and stop scapegoating her. She has 8 to raise on her own and Jon does nothing but hate. Kids feel that. Because of Jon he preventing her from filming more shows and now other quint show are in their place –why doesn’t he and Pat Paulson protest those shows?

Maybe Jon should realize maybe he cannot deal with his situation is because he is too angry about everything therefore is very distorted. His girlfriend should have to face daily from Jon that there are 3 people in their relationship.

The kids are well behaved, well taken care of and are doing well. You have to be controlling to run a househould well with 8 children. Nothing wrong with being organized. I am sure she did not force her twins to go on TV, but they became shy once they were on due to the fact that they are kids, which is quite normal.

Back off, she is doing the best she can. Working as a nurse would considerably change thier lives for the worst, as it brings in a lot less money. They all now have college funds, which gives them an advantage Jon will never be able to provide for them.

Jon just wants to get child support, as he is broke. He would never do as good a job as her because he has no desipline and propbably lets the kids do what they want at his place, hence him making statements like they want to stay with him. Kids need structure and he is not orgainized enough or mature enough to give that to them.

Jon is asking for something for Kate that he himself needs. Shooting a shot into the ground is a flamboyant stunt that is very suggestive of having the capacity to harm some one given the circumstances. Why is he going on couple therapy now, just for the perks, when he could have used it to possibly save his marriage in the past.
Why is Jon saying he would stop Kate from going on reality TV with the kids again when it could give them money that he can not give them and then he goes on a reality TV show again himself, that is still a form of exposure for the family or is he not the kids father still? It seems he is in a competition with Kate and would like to keep her down by any means, keeping her too poor, accusing her of needing psychiatric evaluations, I would be more suspect of a person who would resort to the tactics Jon has resorted to in his game playing with life to try to persuade his children to reject their mom and choose him, which is playing with their heads and hearts in the competition for the limelight Jon is running. If Jon gets the kids you can bet they will ‘say’ they want to do a reality show because it is so much fun to do and of course Jon will give in then, when he will be the big star and get all the money in the bank and laugh all the way there.

Sorry Jaycee your way wrong on this. Jon has had his issues in the past and he has come forward and accepted the consequences. Kate on the other hand has never come forward and accepted any responsibility for anything. All she cares about is the almighty dollar. You dont have a clue and I don’t know it all but read the court papers and you will see that Kate is a sociopath. She is a product of her environment. She wanted to money to keep coming in so she could avoid going back to work. If she was so great tell me why Kate+8 got cancelled. Because Kate was a Bi$%H. No one wanted to work with her and she was trying so hard to threaten her children into being the perfect family for TV that it backfired on her. People saw the true Kate. Jon is in therapy yes the world is aware and Kate just continues to bad mouth him. She needs to just shut up. She is suing him for things written in a book about her that he did not even write. She has him in FEDERAL court right now.
Kate is a lazy woman who is not interested in working hard for her family otherwise she would go back to work as a nurse and show her children she is a strong, hard working mom who will do anything to make sure her family is taken care of. And don’t go there with Jon not paying support he does pay he just cannot pay her thousands of dollars because his job does not allow him to pay that much. She on the other hand is still waiting for tv to pay her way. No one is perfect that is a fact. Jon has his stuff also but at least you gotta give him credit he loves his kids and wants the best for them. He quit his IT job to be Kate’s househusband and she belittled him and demanded that he do what she wanted. She called him names and acted as if she was the queen. Everytime I see her on TV I turn it off. She is not a good person or a good mother. too bad cause the kids are the one’s who will be affected by it. Watch about 8 years down the road. Can anyone say Juvenile probabtion?

You need to keep up Patricia…Jon hasn’t worked an IT job for quite awhile – he has been waiting tables in a restaurant since last fall.

Exactly, John has been working without the kids. Kate has been using the kids to support her. Big difference.

He does not make enough to support them and she has to figure out a way. He stopped her from doing it with the reality show and now 4 other shows with quints took their place why do you not hop over there and criticize those parents making money off their quints????

Are you kidding me jon was just on couple therapy. Come on Jon your not providing any support for your kids and you have the nerve to take the mother of your children to court.Oh yeah you and your girl friend need money.Do you think you IT job will support 8 kids . I’m sure that’s why Kate didn’t go back to nursing it’s not enough money to care for all those kids.Now you want your kids to live with you and your girl friend and Kate should pay for it .Dude your wanting to cash in on your kids like you did on couple therapy. Loser…..

Oh we have another Kate lover and Jon hater. According to what he said on the show….. He is working with his GF to learn how to be a better partner which in turn will make him a better parent. because Kate was a Nazi wife. Everyone agrees with that. She has him already in federal court and is suing him for millions for a book that he did not write that had inflammatory statements about her that turned out to be true. So…… last thing he pays what support he can. He quit the job he had when married to Kate because she wanted him to be the caretaker while she was out on book tours and tv shows. She thought the reality show would go on forever but it fizzed out. The money that she was making is no longer available to her so shes mad that he has taken a blue collar job (a job yes he has a job) and pays what he is supposed to according to his income and expense. She is the one with the problems. she keeps saying she cannot go back to work as a nurse because of the kids. They are all in school now and there is nothing keeping her from working. She would show her children that she has a good work ethic and will do whatever she can to help support her family. No not kate she is going to show up on every talk show she can to make money that way. That is what a loser is. Jon is seeking therapy it does not matter what kind he is asking for help to make his like and the life of his children better. Seems like you have some anger issue patricia maybe you could look into some therapy to get over your issues of calling people losers. Most of what Jon has spoken about on Couples Therapy is how badly he was treated by his wife. She dictated to him what he was going to do and not do. Instead of commenting on him watch the show and see.

Tracy your maturity level is lacking severely. Your decision to read these posts (and mine) and then call me a name is just juvenile. WE are on a REALITY SHOW FORUM and NO ONE here or anywhere (except for Jon and Kates homes) know the truth of what is happening. You have no idea what your talking about and everyone here is just offering up an opinion. You have some issues and therapy might be good for you to try to alleviate some of your rage issues. Go away little girl and find someone who cares.

You hit the nail on the head Mel! All you have to do is watch the shows to see what Kate is all about. Jon was the good parent. I guess some people don’t want to face facts. Bottom line, the kids love their father and that will never change.

I don’t know exactly what’s going on but I feel there is something going on in Kate’s house. John would have no reason for wanting to take the kids out of their home (although maybe if he got custody she would have to move out) Kate seems like she has some real issues with control and she is most likely overwhelmed. I have 5 children and they drove me crazy (they are grown and on their own now) It seems to me that Jon is an ok guy he’s just trying to make a buck and move on with his life. Watch him on VH1 couples therapy. YOU see a different side of him. I think Kate should just step up have the evaluation and then proceed if she refuses then she if afraid something is going to come.

Why do people take marriage vows – it would be much better if couples would not lie and just state we will be together until it no longer is a comfortable situation for us ! It really bother me that people say “For better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health”. It is disgraceful – if we take an oath in a courtroom procedure we would be jailed if we broke the vow!

Why do people marry anyway? When I married my husband in 1946 vows meant something – after 57 years of marriage you better believe that we could have divorced a hundred times, even after the children were married and away from home. A VOW IS A VOW! Lets change the name to make it more truthful. He has been deceased for eleven years, but even if were still alive and a crabby old man, I would think twice about divorce after giving my word!
