Jon and Kate’s Televised Divorce

2 07 2009

These reality television parents have been the talk of the tabloids ever since their marriage of 10 years hit a downward spiral.  What began as innocent and inevitable arguments and disagreements that all couples experience, especially a couple that has 8 children, has become much more as Jon and Kate can’t quite seem to kiss and make up.  What with the allegations of Jon cheating on Kate with a younger woman, and the increasing tension between the two on and off the air, unfortunately, a reconciliation doesn’t seem to be in the cards for them.

In fact, as of Monday the couple has made the decision to solidify their separation and file for divorce.  While this decision will end their 10 year marriage, it apparently will not put an end to the filming of their show on TLC, Jon & Kate Plus Eight.  The ex-couple have agreed to continue filming the show as they go through their divorce, but just do so on an individual basis.  Kate will film separately from Jon and visa verse.

Personally, this decision seems a bit selfish and invasive, especially when their 8 adorable children are involved.  Divorce is a very private and sensitive matter and in choosing to broadcast it for the world to critique and analyze, they are only asking for even more drama and problems to surface.

Sadly, i do have to admit that it will make for great television and I wouldn’t be surprised if the shows ratings skyrocket.





Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler…”It’s Over!”…Again…

Looks like the on-again off-again couple is OFF…again.  I wonder how long their supposed break up will last this time?  My guess is no more than a week.  Maybe the reason these two are always calling it quits just to jump right back in, is because they have really good make up sex…humm…you just never know?

Travis and Shanna’s relationship has been a roller coaster ride from the very beginning.  The unstable couple has been though a lot, including a reality television show stint, two kids, a divorce, Travis’s near death plane crash, and now an alleged affair?  Yup…the drama is nowhere near being over as the couple decides to spilt again (we have lost count on the number) after a vicious argument erupted over Shanna’s so called affair with movie star hottie, Gerard Butler.  Apparently, while Travis was hospitalized after barely surviving a brutal plane crash, the former Miss America and mother of two was busy enjoying Butler’s chiseled abs.

While it may seem like Shana is insensitive, this is not the case…AT ALL.  Yesterday, Moakler lashed back in her official blog that she is sick and tired of having her character and morality bashed.  She explains that at the time of the plane crash, Travis and her were very much committed and she stood by his side for love and support.  However, after he was well enough to return to LA, she discovered  romantic emails from numerous women that confirmed Travis’ lies and infidelity.

Shana is not the only one who is at fault here.  Both individuals engaged in wrongful acts and expressed inappropriate behavior, and BOTH should take responsibility for their mistakes.  Travis Barker needs to grow some balls and admit that his ex wife is not the only one at fault here.  I mean, come on…What do you expect your significant other to do if she finds erotic emails from women who are not her?  You can bet she will go find herself some loving too.  Duh!

Maybe if they both apologize they can decide to reconcile their differences for the thousandth time and get back together, AGAIN.  Blah!
