This week mama had the rare chance to catch the finale episode of the TLC show Kate plus 8. I only knew that the show still existed and was ending because I was stuck waiting in the checkout line at Walmart earlier and “forced” to read tabloids to pass the time! When I was pregnant in 2007, I was obsessed with Jon and Kate plus 8. The kids were so cute, it was a novelty to see so many siblings at the same age together, they were a local family, and I was just amazed at how the parents managed such a large household. I watched the show fairly regularly until the couple split up, and then I thought it was over. I discovered that the show still existed, minus Jon, and was coming to an end, so when I found a repeat of the show on tv late at night I couldn’t resist watching. It’s like a train wreck for me…just can’t turn away. The kids were mostly still cute, albeit with some attitude! The mom was beyond obnoxious, in my opinion. I can’t say I’m surprised that the show was cancelled. My wish for those kids is that they find out what normal life is and are happy as they mature. Their parents seem to love them to pieces, despite all the distractions they incorporated in their lives.
Did you follow this family or watch the show? What did you think of the whole Jon and Kate plus 8? Please share your thoughts!
