TLC will continue to air Jon and Kate plus anyone else as disgusted as I am?

Is TLC really so hungry for money and ratings that they would continue to ruin those children's lives? Their parents are divorcing...they need time to deal with their changes in their lives AWAY FROM THE CAMERAS.

I'm sick of both Jon and Kate and their money-hungry attitudes. It doesn't matter how much they've ruined their family in the name of money, they just keep on doing it! Welcome to season 5!!!

  • Lots of parents raise their kids without having to pimp them out for cash. Kate has enough money to get by until she can find a regular job to support her kids. So does Jon. They don't need to continue putting their heartbroken kids in front of the cameras. They are both selfish pricks.

  • Of course, they are earning and so are Jon and Kate. No one is going to turn off the cameras plus there are contracts involved that you cannot break. My husband is in TV, we know this first hand.

  • Yes, I'm disgusted also, can't stomach to watch it. Jon makes me SICK.

  • I'm so tired of hearing about it. I was pretty annoyed when an issue of People came reading DIVORCED AND DATING IN 20 DAYS (or something like that) with a picture of Jon and his new girlfriend in France on the cover. I mean, COME ON!!! Those poor children!! I agree, they need to shut the cameras off and deal with this situation like NORMAL people...IN PRIVATE!

  • Jon is gross. Kate needs to support her family, I am sure she feels pretty desperate now and its not like she can get any help from Jon, he doesnt work and plays in other countries on yachts with his g/f.....but putting that aside, its not good for these children. I think they will pay for all of their parents mistakes.

  • I used too think Jon was "HOT", when he was a respectable person, but now he's a selfish pig.
    Kate also got a little
    "High and Mighty" once the money rolled in......
    It is a sad situation all around

  • someone needs to stop in and make sure the money the kids are making goes into accounts just for them. Let mom and dad make their own cash. WEll Kate does but still.

  • I think they should take care of their kids and they do but as far as them being selfish and bad I only watch them on T.V . I think at the end of the day they are two people who thought they were doing the right thing and maybe it wasn't the right thing but only they will know .

  • Honestly, were you ladies expecting TLC NOT to want to fill the other 34 episodes they ordered of the show. Jon & Kate both signed and are under contract to hold their end of the agreement up. I know it may not be what you'd like but TLC is a major cable network and the are a business and most businesses these days do what they do for money - bottom line. It's not pretty but it's the truth.
