For anyone who's questioned the authenticity of TLC's Jon and Kate Plus 8, you might want to watch this sneak peek of the redone fifth season premiere. It will likely have longtime Gosselin fans or those rooting for the couple's marriage (despite recent tabloid reports) shedding a tear. In what looks to be a rather somber show opener, Jon and Kate are interviewed separately.
After four seasons of watching them laugh, banter, and bicker on the oversize chair, these individual segments really set the tone of their marital reality. The episode also covers the sextuplets' 5th birthday party, where the kiddos were all smiles and seemed to genuinely enjoy the festivities. The show airs next Monday.
