Your 15 Minutes

I am proud to say I have never watched an episode of Jon and Kate Plus 8.  I have a real problem with women who manipulate their hormones in order to craft the family they want, then end up with more children than they can handle, and expect the world to sympathize with their struggles and watch them on reality shows.  Yes, I’m talking about you, Octomom.

The show disintegrated along with the Gosselin marriage, but apparently, some people will not go gently into that good night.  Between tabloid headlines, Jon Gosselin appeared to slink underground with a new girlfriend, while Kate Gosselin attempted to resurrect herself with a stint on “Dancing with the Stars” (another show of which I can proudly say I have never seen an episode); but recently, she was voted off the dance floor.

Alas, the latest news: Kate is returning in two–count ’em—two new reality shows: “Twist of Kate” and “Kate Plus 8.”  Now, Jon has crawled back to say he is “definitely open” to doing guest stints on these new shows.

For the sake of those eight children, would someone tell the Gosselins that their 15 minutes are up?
