Has Jon Gosselin's Behavior Changed Your Opinion of Kate?

Has Jon Gosselin's Behavior Changed Your Opinion of Kate?

Divorce changes people. The life transition brings out the best and worst in husbands and wives and separating in the public eye makes the situation more difficult. When the Gosselins initially split, Kate took a big hit from media headlines that scrutinized everything from her haircut to the way she was raising her children. Now, Jon has become the tabloid cover boy with his purchase of a swank bachelor pad and photos of him out partying with twentysomething arm candy. Kate has since taken on more of a homemaker role. Has this affected your opinion?

it's changed my opionion of Kate because I beleive that when u stay with someone who makes u unhappy u become a very bad version of yourself that is why divorces exist. When you finally make the decision of being on your own you find yourself and you begin to be your TRUE self. I dunno maybe i sound like im just rambling on but that's my point of view...same goes for Jon, now he's who he really is, you basically unleash the person that's been hiding all this time in order to please your spouse.

It doesn't change my opinion on Kate, but it sure changes my opinion on Jon.

Definitely on Team Kate... When the divorce news first hit I wasn't happy with either of them but Jon has clearly come out as the bigger idiot. I think Kate is doing a good job of focusing on the kids and I really admire her "new adventures" attitude.

I first started watching jon and kate when it first came out and I stopped soon after because I think we all saw it coming. Kate was a major pain in the neck towards Jon and I thought he seemed stressed out from the beginning. To me, it seems that Jon just snapped somewhere and wants out and a break from his super demanding wife - just in the wrong way. I think they both have done wrong.

"No man should get married before he's 30?" Seriously? Some men actually enjoy being married.

I'm sure they could have supported their children without the show. She had a good job as a nurse and he had one doing something with computers. They are more than capable of taking care of their children, it just wouldn't be in such a lavish lifestyle.

Jon's behavior has changed my opinion of JON. I think the kids are adorable and hilarious, but I really wish they would just end this show already.

Teyocoyani, I'd be the first to say no. I think a lot of people would think about what they are doing before they accept that kind of money. I would say no purely because I don't need people in my business. I value my privacy, and if I came home to cameras and tons of people, I can guarantee it wouldn't go on too long before I put a bullet in my head, and I mean that in all seriousness. I don't want the world to know when I go to take a pee, what I say in a heated moment, or what I am doing nearly every minute of everyday. That is to last route I would go to get money. How about getting a real job? That seems to work quite well for most people. I even live with someone, and we like to keep things private even around each other. I don't give a crap what TV show he watches at 5:30 while I am reading a trashy novel. No one else in the world should give a crap either. We are private people who don't intend on making our home and our lives open to millions. You don't have a life anymore when it happens. No thank you. Anyway, does Jon change my opinion of Kate? No. I look at Jon as a person who is going to an extreme to stray from how he was portrayed on TV. Did he go a little overboard, IMO? Yes. But in the same respect, I see him as the person who got dragged into this situation. It was very obvious who wore the pants in their family, and he definitely did not. They are both people who have some issues to work out. Jon needs to realize he can have his breakdown as long as he is making sure his kids are taken care of...and Kate needs to realize that family is first, and if she keeps doing this, it is a huge possibility that her eight children will be leaving her side when they are older, as well.

Why are we so willing to judge as a society? Let's all be absolutely honest shall we? If any of us, at any time, had a talent scout/television network, offering us hundreds upon hundreds of thousands of dollars to tape our lives, including the lives of our children, who among us would or could say no? It's likely that we might be quick to say "No not I!" when this seems highly unlikely to happen. Get real people. It's horrible that the children will have the ability to watch all this unfold when they come of age. In the meanwhile, don't continue to judge, just stop watching.

Kate seems to be the same, minus the new tan. John is the one who wants to be a sugar daddy to 20 somethings now and leave the 8 kids he has at home.
