“The Orlando Sentinel’s” TV Critic, Hal Bodeker posted on his blog tonight that Jon and Kate Gosselin have been living apart for two years. TWO YEARS! Not the 4-6 months they have both mentioned on their show. This makes me mad.
That makes their Hawaiian wedding renewal ceremony a big, fat fake. The photos of them dressed all in white with beautiful Hawaiian leis around their necks, fake. Adorable, happy children dressed in matching outfits, fake. Smiles all around, fake. Fake, fake, fake.
I know it’s reality TV and I shouldn’t trust it, but I fell for it. I didn’t watch the show very often, but guess that I watched it enough to care. I believed what I saw. I felt it was a real portrayal of a young family dealing with how to cope with eight children. I wanted to get tips on how to organize my own family life.
Now, I find out it’s a “ruse” as Hal says.
Thanks Slopez for commenting and letting me know that Hal updated his blog with corrected information from the Associated Press — Jon and Kate were living apart for two weeks not two years.
So, maybe I won’t be quite as mad about the reality of the show not being real, but I still think the wedding was a poser. I think it was probably TLC’s idea to have them renew their vows and they did it for the fanfare and the trip to Hawaii.
