Jon pulled the plug on the show - not for the sake of his kids, but in a knee jerk reaction to TLC changing the title of the show and kicking him to the curb (in terms of air time for him). He was just fine with filming the kids before TLC essentially fired him from the show.Originally Posted by lilymax;3922115;
Like all TLC "reality" families, this one is freakishly odd. They used fertility drugs to produce a pregnancy resulting in multiples while knowing they had no resources to support them, and knowing in advance that multiples were a strong probability. Before and during the show, Jon and Kate appeared regularly before church congregaions doing beg-a-thons for "blessings." They published the donor names on their website.
I think that these children represent nothing but $$$$ to their parents. The best Jon has to offer them is a cigarette. The best Kate has to offer them is her absence.
You are so right, lilymax. These kids were screwed before they were even conceived.
