My mom always says that she’s way too bossy and controlling. No cable here so I have only watched the show a couple of times.

Yeah, she comes across as very controlling, but I probably would be too if I had 8 kids under the age of seven to look after. She does sometimes make comments to Jon that seem really harsh, but again, I wonder about editing and how the show chooses to characterize her.

It just doesn’t seem like they’ve had much time for themselves as a couple at all in the last few years. I can’t imagine all the stress, not only with so many kiddos but also with their house basically being a TV set. Really sad, all around. I hope they work it out, whatever’s going on.

I’ve watched before as well. I don’t know what is going on in their personal life and really don’t care. Whatever they do is between them and I doubt my opinion is going to change that. However, I don’t think Kate is that hard on him. I get it- it seems like he is too lax when it comes to the kids and she has to micro manage. She probably wasn’t like that when there were just 2 kiddies but add 6 to that and I completely understand why she is the way she is.

The Soup always makes fun of their relationship and how she treats him- they always say the new show will be called Jon minus nine.

I have watched every episode.  I have to say kate seems to be bossy, but I think that what it is, is that they both do so much and they do have 8 kids.  I mean really, it would have to be hard to get out of the mind set at times, plus yahoo had a link to a statement he made on the reports in the news about him.

Well I’ve seen the show once or twice and I was ready to jump off a cliff. I think the whole family is obnoxious, lol. Kate is rude and treats everyone like a baby. Jon seems bored ALL the time and always goes against what Kate tells the kids. The older daughters seem like the worst brats and the younger ones are just ill-mannered. Except the one boy with the glasses, he I could stand to have around.

I guess you can tell my feelings on the show lol.

I’m on the fence about the Jon/Kate relationship also.  My Fiance and I debate it all the time.  I figure there are things in every relationship where one person is better than the other.  Some of the ladies in my office always go on and on about how their husbands are in charge of finances.  This seems very archaic to me, but if you’re bad with money and he’s not…

So anyway, I think Kate is awesome at managing 8 kids and running a household and he’s not.  So he allows her to take the wheel on that one.  Having said that, maybe he IS in need of micro-managing, because you see what he does when given a little bit of freedom 😉  But seriously, what kind of moron has a daily reality show, followed by cameras 24/7, and thinks he can get away with cheating??

bellenga it seems like you are hypercritical of Kate and have something against her which I don’t think is necessarily fair. I think we all need to keep in mind the fact that reality TV is heavily scripted and edited and tabloids are blown way out of proportion.

Sometimes, I think I’m a little bit bossy and controlling towards my fiance. It’s not like I WANT to be, but srsly, some of the stuff he does sometimes… We joke all the time that he’s only 12 years old. I wish he could just behave sometimes… but, that’s besides the point, and I love him anyway and he’s great when it really matters. I think Kate was probably like that in the beginning, a bit bossy and controlling, or the "pants wearer" but then with 8 kids things just went downhill quickly I think… You have GOT to be super organized and well managed to keep 8 kids, 6 of the same age, from breaking all out and causing mass chaos and destruction (ok, I exaggerate a little). Plus, I’m sure it is very very stressful. When I’m stressed, the bossiness gets worse because the patience wanes (a grown man riding and tipping the shopping cart for the umpteeth time can just get to a girl sometimes…). I don’t think, with that many kids, and all of them so young, that she can ever really be at peace and unstressed. Even a vacation she;d have to worry they don’t get lost and stuff, or if she left them home would have to be sure a babysitter can really manage THAT many kids. But, as I said, I don’t really watch the show that much. That’s just the stuff that I’ve told my mom :p
