  • I don't watch the show because when I did a couple of times I found her to be very bossy to her husband. Treats him like a kid too. Don't like her.

  • when I first started watching I didn't like her she was so uptight and snappy to jon but I think she has gotten better over the years. I still think she should relax and not be so worried about clean. Of course Ive never parented so many so maybe its a necessity. I think she is a loving good mom.

  • She can be annoying at times but having 8 kids and being a SAHM, I don't blame her. I know I can get annoying too. I notice that everything that Jon wants to do, she doesn't want to.

  • I think she is just a normal mom who is trying to do her best for her family. Yes she is infront of a camera everyday, but she still stays true to who she is even if she is a little bossy and a neat freak. I think it would be better to be a neat freak rather than a slob anyway.

  • She's a bit bossy and uptight, but like everyone says, it's probably a result of having 8 kids and not much control over many things. I just watched a new show on TLC called Table for 12, and it's about a couple who has 10 kids: 12 yr old twins, 10 yr old twins and 4 yr old sextuplets. One of the sextuplets has cerebral palsy. Granted, the 2 sets of twins are old enough to help out a lot more than Kate's twins, but the dad has a lot of patience and a great sense of humor, and the mom seems really patient and calm. When the parents are interviewed, they don't snap at each other or make off-handed remarks the way Jon and Kate do. Then again, I only have 2 kids, not multiples. I really shouldn't judge. It can't possibly be easy with that many kids.

  • She is not my favorite person,I think she is also bossy.I don't watch the show at all.

  • I hate the bossy side of her. I love the show though, and there are moments they capture her being really loving to the kids and laughing...I like seeing her in that light. I know they say they keep everything real, but I would like to see more of that side of her in the shows. I think she wouldn't have so many haters if they'd show both sides. Yes, that many kids is stressful, so she's going to flip out sometimes, but I think there's more to her than that.

  • Very organized, very clean, a total drama queen, I think Jon is a saint putting up with her because some of the stuff she says to him is really bitchy. I would love to know more about the issues she has with her parents. How people with all those grand kids can have nothing to do with them is beyond me.

  • I didn't know she had issues with her parents. Do they not talk or something?

  • I think that if cameras were to follow me around all day, they could definitely cut it to make me look like a controlling bitch too. Of course if I had 8 kids, I would probably be MORE bitchy and controlling than I am now. :)
