Yeah, she doesn't want to discuss these reasons until she has had time to hype them for ratings for her show.

Interesting...

Wonder when they filmed the interviews for this episode? I know Jon said he was 2 hours late as he was not sure if he was coming or not. Maybe just the fact that she can't even rely on him to show up when he's supposed to was the straw that broke the camels back.

Or he found & rented an apartment in NYC, which goes against their original plan....so she needs to get the ball rolling & custody arrangements in wirting.

Talking to the paparazzi? Saying he had no idea where she was? Was he with the Glassman girl this weekend? I read something but didn't click to see the pictures. :

I'm confused about why Jon said he was "excited". In what context was it used?
He said he was excited about this new chapter of his life. He went on to say he's only 32. What irked me was that he was smirking part of the interview, even my DH saw it said what a loser. DH then said why does Jon look like he's smiling when he's talking about divorcing his wife.

I presume it was the news that Jon was apartment hunting in NY and when asked by reporters if he knew where Kate was he said "I have no idea" and didn't seem to care. I think he also opening acknowledged still having contact with "the other woman".

The people still defending Jon have got to be out of their minds! This is a man who cheats on his wife with a 23 year old woman, goes out drinking with the college crowd, looks for an apartment in an entirely different state, is EXCITED about the next chapter of his life, because after all, he's "only 32", and is sporting brand new ear piercings!

Come on people! He is out of control. This is not how a responsible parent with his children's best interest at heart acts.

And say what you want about Kate, but you know what? Jon was treated the way she had to treat him, like the 9th child. He obviously can't make a good decision if his (or his children's) lives depended on it.

She is doing what she has to do to provide for the kids, as far as taping the show goes. And just why oh why is Jon going to continue to be on the show if he was so against it all along? Give me a break.

That man really burned my biscuits tonight!!!!

I can't agree with that, until someone leaks the contract. Some contracts are pretty ironclad, and aren't just about money. And if it is about money, what it the fine was a 10 million, or even a billion dollars? What then? Do people here really think they have that much cash laying around? Should they strip the kids (if they have them) savings? Should they let both houses go into foreclosure? How do they pay something like that? So easy to judge, when it's not our kids lifes we are talking about.

I just wonder, if Jon was so unhappy, why did he sign the contract? Why didn't he refuse on his and his kids behalf? Why doesnt he buy out the contract with his share?

Any contractural lawyers here?

I've said it before, everyone I ever knew or knew of that had vow renewals ended in divorce. I've told DH that we will never have our vows renewed - it's a one time deal.

But it's probably good for the kids to keep doing it...just for a short bit. They've had these cameras around their whole lives, filming is normal for them. To continue for a few episodes would keep some stability; in a strange way. Not, mom & dad are getting divorced & the cameras are gone all in one week.

Hopefully someone undestands the point I was trying to make......I started rambling.
I completely understand.

She said she is obligated to go on with the show.

I"m glad they are going to try and keep the kids in the house. I'll be surprised if the dogs get to stay.

And you can't tell me that things weren't breaking down when they went to Hawaii to renew their vows, so how hypocritical was that? And those two poor dogs will be in rescue the minute John is legally out of the house, I know it.OK, I have to go hug my husband now.

Prayers to those poor children, not because they are the casualties of divorce, but because its been played out in public the way it has.

I think the dogs will stay. This (marital problems) has been going on for months. I think the dogs were bought for protection. Kate has said she "doesn't want to be alone", I think, even though she's not fond of them, she will feel protected and now the entire country knows that there are 2 German Shepards on the premises & in the house. Also, if the kids love the dogs (and obviously they do), I think they'll stay for that reason. Imagine taking those dogs away from Mady!!!

But if it was the apartment hunting -- isn't that something TLC is helping with so they can find a place that's ready to film in? And being producers of the show (J&K) how could she not know that?

As soon as times get tough – somebody has to leave – run. Thinking the grass is greener somewhere else. They have 8 children together - they should be BONDED for life. Yes I said it. I wish I was the judge on their case, I'd mandate them to at least ONE YEAR in marriage therapy. Come to think of it – two years in therapy – for that second wedding!!! They should work it out – Period!!!!!

My DH and I just talked about their divorce. In all this mess they have said that they are doing it for the kids. Wouldn't you want to work on your marriage...for the kids! As a married couple they need to put their relationship first so that it is strong...for the kids!

I wish you were the judge! I have a feeling you would give them a piece of your mind, and they need honesty right now.

I was wondering why Jon wouldn't just move back into their old house if it hasn't sold yet anyway. It would at least give the kids a familiar environment if it comes to them exchanging the kids from one home to the next. I just don't see it working out where only one parent stays in the house at a time, unless they each have a little apartment to live in while it's not "their turn" to spend with the kids.

I am not a fan or hater of either but I feel Kate would try but Jon has thrown in the towel. If he felt this way, he should have gotten a spine a long time ago and had a talk with Kate. Maybe he did & it just wasn't shown on tv but he should've stood up for himself more. JMHO

People are disgusted by it - and after tonight, I think a lot more people are going to be disgusted - so much so that they will stop watching..

Any contract can be broken. It may cost them, but aren't their kids worth it? I mean, they do everything for their kids...but break their contracts.
The children are not their priority.. They made that abundantly clear tonight..

Bolded by me. I wonder what that means? What activities?
More of Kate playing the victim.. What was Jon going to do? Kidnap the children? Start beating Kate? "Protecting herself and her children" equals "protecting her victim image.."

It's all PR..
