I would like to start off by saying that Kate Gosselin’s new epithet is most definitely Kate “Stop Breathing So Loudly” Gosselin. (Thanks Wendie! I couldn’t stop laughing at that one.) Secondly, the LA Times has an interesting story today about how the Jon & Kate producers are scrambling to incorporate Jon’s cheating ways into the storyline for the show — which has its season premiere scheduled in two weeks.
I didn’t realize this, but the LA Times says that Us Weekly — which broke the Jon cheating scandal — has seen its sales skyrocket as a result of their J&K coverage. My guess is that a lot of people who don’t normally read gossip mags are avid followers of J&K. (In fact, this website is proof of that — we have a whole nest of commenters who only comment on J&K stories.)
The last J&K season finale drew 4.6 million viewers, a HUGE number for a cable show. Lord only knows how many people will tune in now to watch the fallout. Honestly I don’t know how Kate is going to be able to sit on that couch next to Jon and do an interview without stabbing him repeatedly in the eye. The producer is gonna be all like, “So, Kate, tell us about Aaden’s appointment at the ear doctor” and she’s gonna be all like “JON! STOP BREATHING SO LOUD! YOUR HAIR PLUGS LOOK AWFUL! YOUR FACE IS TOO RED! WHY ARE YOU SO FAT?”
I am SO excited.
