Last night, TLC played the special 1-hour episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8, in which Jon and Kate Gosselin, the parents of twins and sextuplets (8 children in all), announced that they had filed for divorce earlier on Monday (yesterday). Minutes before the end of the episode, a black screen with white text read:
On Monday June 22, 2009, legal proceedings were initiated in Pennsylvania to dissolve the 10-year marriage of Jon and Kate Gosselin.
Now, on TLC.com, the network has already begun advertising the next episode, “Jon & Kate Plus 8: The First 10 Years”. The trailer goes:
A lot can change in a decade. For the first time, go back to the very beginning to see the complete story of Jon and Kate’s ten-year marriage. It’s a special one-hour retrospective with a look at what’s ahead for the family.
Wow. The network is relentless. I guess it’s totally expected, though, as everyone’s out for money these days. Ugh. What a depressing past few days it has been for the Gosselin family.
