It is a disaster you know is coming: Kate Gosselin has agreed to a TLC Special “You Ask, Kate Answers” that will replace a regular episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8 next week. And we wonder what viewers, who can submit questions via the TLC blog, might be really interested in, which questions will be released in the interest of ratings and which will be released in the interest of the children. If you think about it, this episode could very likely turn into a disaster, either for TLC or for the Gosselin’s children.
When you think the Gosselins have turned the corner in their divorce case in the best interest for their children, you just know that there is another unexpected, likely not so great, move just around the corner. The producers of Jon & Kate Plus 8 have convinced Kate Gosselin to run a question and answer episode of the show next week. Given the private circumstances of the Gosselin family, it is clear that this episode has more to do with fame and money than actually resolving the divorce, which common sense suggests would be the priority for Jon and Kate.
So, if there is something you want to know about Kate, then you can head over to TLC’s website and submit a question. But, honestly, what don’t we know already? We already know a lot of things we should not know anyway. What else can there be besides the ‘Kate how sad are you?’ type of topic?
The questions submitted will be selected by the editorial staff and sorted into three categories. Questions that concern the show; questions that are targeted at Jon and Kate as well as the divorce; and questions that will involve the children in some way. Kate and the producers will have some tough choices to make: Do you act in the interest of the ratings and release questions aiming at the divorce and children – and possibly hurt the children as a result? Or do you have the Gosselin family in mind, remove all questions about the divorce and the children and create a boring episode filled with fluff that will impact ratings?
Our thoughts? This show was a really dumb decision and it is obvious that money is at stake here. Obviously, Kate should not answer any questions that relate to the divorce and the children; we know that TLC will have to release questions about the divorce and children. It is an episode designed to squeezes ratings out of what is left of Jon and Kate Plus 8. We know that there will be an outpour of reactions afterwards that can only be negative for the children.
Jon and Kate need a time out, now.
