Gosselins To Divorce, But The Show Must Go On
Jon and Kate Gosselin, the stars of the TLC reality TV show Jon & Kate Plus 8 , may be getting a divorce, but the show about them will go on. The divorce revelation came about 40 minutes into Monday night's show. Providing a sort of stability for the production team -- as well as the Gosselins' eight children -- the show will continue to be taped at the their home in Berks County, PA with Jon and Kate each taking one-week turns living with them. At one point during Monday night's episode, Kate Gosselin remarked, "The show must go on. ... We can't go back now. We can only go forward." On his blog, Baltimore Sun TV columnist David Zurawik commented "I wonder if [viewers] feel exploited by TLC selling ads and making millions of dollars out of a show announcing a divorce that will not only leave eight kids with a shattered family -- but a video record of their family coming undone that will define them for the rest of their lives. I'm done with this sick carnival side show. How about you? It is now clear that the only way to make it stop is to quit watching."
