Jon and Kate Plus 8 To Make Big Announcement

What Will Be the Announcement on Jon and Kate Plus 8?

After 10 years of marriage and portions of their life being aired on television and made into tabloid headlines, our favorite TLC family is said to be making a major announcement in Monday's hourlong episode of Jon and Kate Plus 8. While there's speculation that the couple will announce a separation or impending divorce, even many of us viewers who once held out hope are at a loss as to what may happen. Jon was recently spotted checking out a pricey apartment in New York's Trump Tower.

Whether or not the 32-year-old daddy is shopping for a bachelor pad, his unhappiness has been evident in both last season's finale and in this season's episodes, particularly last week on American Chopper when Jon made a comment about OCC's black widow bike being fitting for Kate. It seemed like the married man who always appeared to have a weakness for his type A wife had distanced himself entirely. Meanwhile, cameras continued to roll on the other nine Gosselins, making us think that maybe the big news is that the father is leaving the show. Watching this clip, it's impossible not to feel for Jon, Kate, and their children as they enter the next phase of their lives in the public eye. What do think the announcement will be?

I have only watched this show a few times and I have always thought it was ridiculous that people were so into it. I hope this show ends so I don't have to hear about them anymore.

hopefully the announcement is about quitting the show to work on their marriage via counselling

i would think TLC would be responsible for the commercials and advertising their divorce publicly. I don't think the network would give a couple the freedom to decide when to publicize what.

I don't know, I find them more interesting now, maybe because they've done such a 180 from where they started. They used to be this perfect, happy, Christian couple, and now they're embroiled in this messy drama. It just shows how you can never know one's life will go in the future--you can take nothing for granted.

I've watched on and off over the years, but always enjoyed the sweet family moment. Now, just the sight of these two disgusts me...Jon needs to grow some *%@&*^! backbone, and I wish Kate would shave that rats nest off her head. Whatever this huge announcement is, I just wish they'd go away...they're not celebrities and don't belong on the cover of gossip mags and have no business invading my popsugar!!! okay I'm done ranting now

I don't even know them, but I sure hope that they're going to consider marriage counseling. Trying to salvage whatever. They just had a renewal ceremony last year! I dunno, I just don't want them to be part of the divorce statistics, it sucks to see and boy, I feel sorry for the children that they're going to go through this publicly.

k22- I do find it funny that we all shouldn't make ignorant comments about Kate, but it's apparently fine to make them about Jon. It's only shallow when we trash the wife.

the show used to be really good, a lot of fun and sweet it has turned into something completely different. talk about money & fame...they change people.

I agree with the seperating. Or it will be something to the effect that Jon SUPRISINGLY got a great job offer in New York so he'll be living there 90% of the time to support the family.

I think Jon and Kate Plus 8 will be done but Kate will get a spin-off show about being a single mom with 8 young kids. She obviously doesn't mind doing the show.

I have a feeling these children will hate kate.

they're separating, remaining friends, united in their love of their children, they will ask for the public to refrain from judging either party and respect that this is a difficult period for them and they hope to work through it. after this season ends they will file for divorce. if the other show with 6 kids takes off; buh-bye jon and kate. otherwise it will be kate and her 8 back for another round.

I am really pulling for them to be ending the show. I have been a fan for so long, I just would hate to think, like several of you have pointed out, that they'd actually try to get a ratings boost out of a divorce announcement. :-(
