TLC promised a life-changing episode and Jon and Kate certainly delivered. Monday night’s hour-long episode of ‘Jon & Kate Plus 8’ was the highest-rated yet, with the couple announcing their separation. Kate took the high road filing for a no-fault divorce today, when I’m sure she really blames Jon for their marital problems. But now she’s free to find a real man who works for a living and takes his responsibilities seriously.
SpongeJon Flarepants seems quite happy as well, stating he’s proud to have finally stood up for himself.
He also says, “I’m excited and hurt at the same time. I have a new chapter in my life — I’m only 32 years old.” And therein lies the problem with Jon. He thinks he’s a frat boy who doesn’t have to grow up. Wait ’til he has to get one of those job thingies. You know, where you get up and like, work for a living?
At least they have the good sense to let the kids stay in the house while Jon and Kate take turns visiting instead of carting the eight little ones to Jon’s bachelor pad every second weekend.
And I’ll bet Kate’s got a show/book/TV movie/hair product line in the works to milk the most of her circumstances. Kate-ching!
