You know I had to go there...my thoughts on Jon and Kate

I'm sure we've all read plenty about the whole Jon and Kate Plus 8 fiasco but I just can't help myself. As a fellow mom of multiple multiples, I have to jump right on the bandwagon with the rest of them. I watch the show from time to time but now that Eric and Betty Hayes have their own show, I much prefer them over the Gosselins. At least Eric and Betty Hayes are respectful towards one another and can laugh together over even the most stressful situations.

But last night, I had to tune in to the season premiere of Jon and Kate. It's like a train wreck...I just couldn't tear myself away from it. On at least SIX different occasions, Kate mentioned how she's "doing this alone", even making a snide comment about how she's planning the sextuplet's 5th b-day party on her own because "Jon needed the weekend off". Wait....is that....yes, I think it is....I hear a violin playing somewhere.....Are we supposed to feel sorry for her because she's taking care of her kids by herself a few times, here and there? She is their mother, after all. I suppose maybe she has become a bit spoiled with all the church ladies who come over to do her laundry, the nannies, the personal assistants, and the personal organic chef.

Truth be told, I do have sympathy for her to a degree. I know it's hard to go it alone when you have many young children to care for. Tim has gone on his fair share of business trips when I've had to go days at a time (24/7) alone with my kids so I do understand how challenging it can be.

However, with that said, I felt she went overboard repeating time and again how she was doing this on her own. Yes, Kate....we get it. You planned the b-day party by yourself....now that your viewers are aware of the fact, do you feel better? And see, the thing is....most stay-at-home moms don't even have a crew of camera people around to have an adult conversation with. So when she says she's "doing this on her own"....well, I don't think she TRULY has a vision of what "doing it on her own" is really like. You just know if one of the kids is choking on a grape, one of the camera guys is gonna step in and help, right? Most of us don't have that luxury.

I noticed at the b-day party on Monday's show that not one relative of hers or the children were present. No grandparents, no aunts, no uncles, no cousins. The children who came to the party were classmates of the sextuplets. None of the parents accompanying the children appeared to be friends with Kate. It didn't even seem that the people who helped her set up the party were friends of hers....and they didn't even engage in much conversation with her during the set-up. I feel even worse for her children.....it seems as if Kate has alienated so many people that now her young children are paying the price.

Isn't that a sign that you really need to examine how you've treated people? I'd be heartbroken if I was at my childrens' b-day party and looked around and saw that none of my extended family members or good friends were there to celebrate the special occasion with us. It would definitely cause me to look deep within myself and wonder why no one wants to be around me. It is possible that maybe this was all skewed by the show to make it look as if Kate was friendless at the party but I highly doubt it.

Don't think for a minute, though, that I'm on Jon's side here. Oh no....definitely not. The minute I heard that he was playing the whole "I got married young and had 8 kids by the time I was 27 yrs old" card, I rolled my eyes and thought he was yet another immature adult refusing to take responsibility for his part in things. No one held a gun to his head when he got married at a young age and no one forced him to take part in fertility treatments both times Kate got pregnant.

And I don't buy the excuse others are making for him in saying that Kate drove him to have an affair. Whether he did or didn't have the affair remains to be seen (by the public, anyway). Sure, Kate's been tough on him...she even admitted it on the show Monday night (in between the "I'm doing this by myself" jabs). But just because your spouse has treated you poorly does not give you permission to have an affair, or even just go out partying at 2 am with a young woman who is clearly not your wife. Jon made some poor choices but I don't believe for a minute that it's Kate's fault. No one can make you have an affair....not even your rude, disrespectful wife who berates you in front of millions of viewers on national tv.

During her separate interview at one point, Kate mentioned that couples with multiples have triple the divorce rate and that she had hoped they would beat those odds. I have to say my heart did go out to her. That part, I totally understand. After having two sets of twins, our marriage has been torn to shreds and we have had to go through over a year's worth of marital therapy to just get back on solid ground. Kids are tough on a marriage....but then you throw multiples into the mix and it's enough to put stress on even the strongest of marriages. I remember people used to tell me that if we could survive the first year of marriage, we could consider our marriage successful. But then after our 1st set of twins were born, the pediatrician told us that if our marriage could survive the first year of parenthood with twins (no less), we could consider our marriage successful. I'd have to agree with that but go a little further....I think if you can survive the first FIVE years of parenthood with children (especially multiples), then maybe we have a good chance of a successful marriage.

In the end, I do hope that Jon and Kate can work things out for the sake of their children. They say all things happen for a reason and I'd like to believe that maybe through all this mess, something good will come out of it. Perhaps Kate will take a harsh look at herself and realize that she needs to start treating those around her kindly and with more respect, especially her husband of all people. She also needs to stop playing the martyr here. I'm not sure if she was looking for America to applaude her ability to take care of her 8 children by herself but they are HER children....we kinda expect her to have to go it alone from time to time, just like so many of us have had to do.

And perhaps Jon will realize that it's much too late to go back and re-live his youth all over again. He needs to man-up and find a way to be happy with the way his life has turned out. Unfortunately, there are no do-overs in life....there are other people involved now, Jon. You have a wife, you have 8 kids....all of your actions no longer just affect only you. It affects your whole family. Every move you make has consequences for both you and them. Sorry to break the hard news to you, buddy....but someone has to say it.

Alrighty then, I'm off my soap box. Just had to get my two cents in here....I'd love to hear your thoughts on Jon and Kate.

You summed it up very nicely there at the end, Helene. Kate and Jon would do well to listen to your advice. But they won't. It's very sad.

Tami said...

I've heard about this show from a couple of co-workers, I'm not a huge TV fan, but I've seen this couple on every tabloid in the market! I feel sorry for them, mostly for the children.

It's so sad =(

Miranda said...

The thing for me is both of them kept saying over and over, "I love my kids." "I'm here for my kids." "I live for my kids." "My kids are my number 1 in my life."

First off, they should be saying "our" kids.
Secondly, I think those statements show where the problem lies. Their marriage isn't priority. Your spouse comes first, children second. If they love their kids so much they will do whatever it takes to give them a happy, safe, and stable home with 2 loving parents who love each other.

I just hope they watch that show back, maybe they can see how defensive and pitiful they look.

Nikki B. said...

ooooooo!!! i agree with miranda!!! i NEVER hear other people say this...and it is the route my husband and i take with our marriage.

MARRIAGE FIRST!! my husband was here first, as i recall!
and KIDS SECOND!!

i have so much to say on this issue...but, number one. kate is a problem. she is very much like my SIL. to a T! i see my brother in jon! their marriage is in shambles, as the kids come first (one is autistic, to boot)...and they are miserable. he is staying for the kids...but, that really isn't doing anyone any good.

the tension at that party made ME uncomfortable!! can you imagine how the kids felt!! they're not idiots!!!

and...the thing about teh "p people"...what is the difference between the paparazzi and the TLC camera crew that follows her every move??????

kristi said...

Did you read my comments on this on Facebook?

She irritated me when she said she didn't like the fans before but she does now.

Personally, I think the fame, the tummy tuck, the tanning, the teeth whitening all went to her head. And she has said in previous seasons that the film crew helps her out a lot.

I have an autistic son. I have a teen daughter. I married young, I had 2 kids by the age of 29. I work full time, I go to college, I have loads of stress. But my husband and I are a team. No he doesn't help me as much as he should but he would never put up with being treated badly like she treats Jon. Before I make decisions, I discuss it with my husband. We parent as a team. When/if my kids leave, we will still have to deal with each other and I don't want us to be strangers!

Jon should have stood up to her long ago and he should have NOT put himself in the position he did. Whether he cheated or not, and I believe he did, it was not right.

I told Hubs that it just goes to show that money does not solve everything.

They need serious counseling and he needs to get a job, part time or whatever so he is not feeling smothered. Lord knows they can afford a nanny.

Mrsbear said...

I didn't watch the premiere although I really wanted to. I don't generally tune in to the show, because specifically I find Kate a little grating, but in no way does her personality warrant Jon's behavior. I agree with you, having kids is work and puts a strain on any couple, much more so having an instant family their size. But it would be impossible to say what their relationship could've been without the constant cameras and scrutiny and influx of people. How do you retain a sense of self as a reality television personality? You can't. It seems like they both fell in to these "roles" that the show was carving out for them. Kate as the uptight, browbeating perfectionist, Jon as her eye-rolling, whipping boy. The last thing they are is "real" people. How can you truly work on your marriage if neither of you even resembles the actual person you used to be?

Mother of Multiples said...

You said it nearly perfect. I think they ought to consider getting off the show but I think they are under contract and I think Kate loves her lifestyle. She can be such a snot to Jon and although I think we all can be a bit bossy to our husbands...you never see her hug or love on him. I want to know when and what channel the other multiple show is on that you mentioned and what the name of it is...I will start watching that one instead.

Tami said...

How is Kate complaining about having to do some thing "by herself" when she's already admitted she's spends lots of time traveling for speaking engagements? It's sad to me because it seems the kids have taken a backseat to their parents "road to fame". I'm sure they probably first agreed to have their lives taped because they needed the money (didn't Jon have basically no job when they started?) and now it would seem the money has become more important.

Karen said...

I think you summed this all up really well. I'm not married (yet) and I don't have kids (yet)but I think any reasonable person can look at this situation and see it for what it is.

I think the birthday party was set up for TV, which is, I believe, why none of the family was there. And if she expects America to believe she did ANY of that by herself when she's followed by a camera crew (which includes a Production Assistant), well, I've got news for her: I'm not buying it.

I think if she's really in this for her kids, she needs to do what she can to work things out with Jon. Even if it's just so that they stay friendly until the kids are out of the house and then go their separate ways, they need to stick this out while the kids are young. I also think she needs to be willing to end the TV show. She should be making enough on speaking engagements and future book deals that she doesn't need what TLC is paying her. And since Jon has said repeatedly that he wants to quit, she needs to take that into serious consideration. It's not like it's doing gaining her any admirers anymore.

MamaHen Em said...

First, I couldn't agree more with what Miranda said - marriage has to come first or the kids suffer.

I watched last night and a few things stuck out to me regarding Jon. Whatever he has done is WRONG but the difference between him and Kate is that he SEEMED really sad about the whole thing. Not once did he criticize Kate and her obsession with her 'job' of being famous or how she is with the kids. Which is the only thing Kate did - blame Jon and criticize and as you mentioned, tell us how much she does by herself.

At the birthday, Jon seemed really sad about the situation. Kate said a few times that he wanted to be done with being famous - that he wanted to break out of this role and was tired of it. It seems like MAYBE Jon just wants a normal life and once things got to big, he wanted to go back and Kate wants the fame. It's very sad, really. If I had to pick one parent who SEEMS to have a better sense of what is best for the kids, it would be Jon.

What a mess. Instead of contracting for another season of it being about the kids, they should be going through marriage counseling. How is anything supposed to get resolved by airing your laundry on TV and both parents taking turns being away from the kids? It is soo, soo sad.

Kristina P. said...

The whole situation is such a mess.

And the funny thing is, he's home with the kids all the time by himself, while she's doing public speaking engagments, book tours, etc.

It's one of the thing she has complained about, that he doesn't make any money.

Heather said...

You made many good points, Helene! It is amazing to me how just having two little ones can impact a marriage! It is tough! Everything that is happening now is going to impact all 8 kids...very sad.

Sharlene said...

Amen sista! I can't watch that show because Kate annoys me so dang much. She is selfish and entitled. Two things I just can't deal with.

Leila said...

Just dropping in from SITS to day hi.

I have heard snippets and seen magazine covers but I hadn't actually read about what is going on, you did a great summary.

GAMZu said...

I haven't seen that show, so I searched around online and this is one of the clips I found:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z2Y8z_wPcsQ&feature=player_embedded

Wow, is all I can say. Jon is SO degrading to her! When he talks about how she has changed after having kids, he says she went from being a curly blonde to short straight DARK hair.
Kate said he should have checked her roots before getting married. Jon answered, "Yes, I should have." O_o
She asked, "But you would have married me anyway, right?"
And get this: Jon's answer, "Well, I really do like blond hair much better."
OMG. Telling your wife you regret marrying her on national TV!?

LauraC said...

Word. I didn't want to get into a super long post about Jon and Kate but you stole the thoughts right out of my head.

Kim said...

We can't get cable TV where we live (I know, I know) so I have never actually seen this show, but I certainly know who Jon and Kate are! I read about them everywhere—magazines, tabloids, news, online,etc. I don't know what to think, other than theirs is a warning story to never allow your family to be the subject of a reality TV show. NOT WORTH IT.

Fearless Mom said...

they need to get off tv and work on their marriage!

glad you and yours made it through. the days and years after kids are really tough. your kids are blessed to have you both.

Jenny said...

I totally agree with you.

I wonder how much money they make for doing the show. That's probably why they never quit. They are now used to a lifestyle that they couldn't afford most likely without TLC.

Becky said...

It is time for a REALITY check for both of them, they are BLESSED with 8 BEAUTIFUL and HEALTHY kids, get it together Jon and Kate!!!

The Lane Family said...

I think you did a wonderful job summing up what occurred on Monday with Jon and Kate. Having children is a lot of work. I have watched the show on and off for all five seasons and one thing I must say is that based on what the show show's Kate is very hard on Jon. However, when you have more than one child you do have to have a routine and order especially with multiples.

I also think that Kate has changed a lot from when the show first started to where they are now. In fact she said on another interview that she depends on the show for their income. Maybe it is time her and Jon work on their marriage and let the cameras go away. I recently read an article that said the best thing you can do for your children is to show love and respect for each other. Someday believe it or not the children leave and move on with their lives and if you and your spouse have not worked on building and strengthening your marriage you will have nothing. Just my thoughts.

Tess said...

I didnt even know what this show was about until they kept hitting the newstands and morning shows because he was having an affair. Im sorry but hanging out with a young thing is cheating no matter how you look at it. If she does dump him, he's going to have lots of child support to pay-lol!

Jen said...

You made some excellent points here and I agree with you. I think that they need to stop this show for the shake of their marriage and children. Enough is enough!

Tabbatha Rose said...

I really liked this post Helene! I didnt even bother to watch the soap opera, in fact I stopped watching them a year ago. Both my DH and I roll our eyes at them. There are ppl out there with large familes (not necessarily all multiples) and they dont have everyone under the sun helping them.

As for multiples putting a strain on a marriage, well heck yeah!! Its takes time to get things ironed out. One baby takes it toll as it is, add multiples and all hell breaks loose.

I think they both need to grow up and take a dose of true reality because their world does not reside in mine.

The Daily Dean Chronicals said...

Great blog....I have to say I am NOT a fan of the show! In fact I can proudly say, I have never watched it! All I have to say is....Yep, Marriage is hard, having children is harder and doing it together is hardest! That's life! NO MATTER HOW MANY KIDS YOU HAVE!!

Debbie said...

I watched about five minutes once and that was long enough for me to know that Kate is one angry mama. And if you live your life, and make your living, in front of the camera, people are going to pry and talk. I feel so sorry for the kids. So very, very sorry for them on so many levels.

C Lo said...

this is pretty much the best post on the whole situation I've read. bravo.

my only additional take on the whole thing is that it bugs the hell out of me that Kate clearly blames Jon for all their problems and seems to refuse to turn the critical eye on herself.

Missy said...

Amen Sister! At first, I was intrigued by the show - "how does she do it" factor was the whole reason I began watching it. And then all of Kate's ugliness shined through. I get it too - she is stressed - so am I at times but she is a little too much for me. I really wish they would stop doing the show and concentrate on their family. It broke my heart to see the kids' faces. For the kids' sake, I hope they find a peaceful & happy resolution.

Amy W said...

You are the 3rd person I've heard use the phrase "train wreck" to describe this show. I saw an episode once, and I've heard all the recent uproar, so I read a little bit online. It's just sad.

Amy said...

I only have one child. My husband works many hours and we are alone. I do alot of things by myself. That does not mean I get mad and want to give up and pout. Nope he works hard so I can stay home with her and I like that. Plus I try hard to make things fun when it home and we can laugh and relax. Marriage is a lot of work no matter how many children you have. You have to work at it Right?

The Mother said...

I just wanna know:

Does Jon think he's EVER gonna find another woman who will put up with his brood?

He's not exactly a stud muffin (8 kids certainly dials down the sexy quotient).

Mrs. M said...

You've hit a nerve with me-I've only been able to watch this show a couple times because every time it makes me furious!

Kate has absolutely NO respect for her husband, and that alone is enough to destroy their marriage. Then, on top of that, she puts 'her kids' (not 'our kids') as priority above Jon and their relationship. I'm not a professional, but from what I've seen that is also a marriage killer. Add in her constant nagging, and I have to say I think she's gotten out of her marriage exactly what she put into it.

Not that Jon is blameless. As far as I'm concerned, 27 is not "starting a family young". It's not as if they started a family when he was still a teenager-he was practically 30! The average person only lives to be what-70? So that would make 35 exactly middle aged for the average person and 27 certainly old enough to be responsible and make good choices. I'm 23 and I have 3 children[5 years, 15 months, and 13 days old], my marriage is fabulous, and I don't feel the need to "relive my youth". I made my choices, I love my choices, and I am accountable for them. John should have put on his big boy underoos and stepped up to the life he choose.

The worst part is that their kids are all in the middle of this. What terrible examples they have in their parents.

Semi-Slacker Mom said...

I have planned every one of my 3 children's bday parties. Let's see that's 13 parties in 7 years. And we have big parties! Because that's what I do. My hubby doesn't care anything about the parties. He just pays the bill.

I'm wondering about that dr. Who does IVF on someone that young after only 1 year of marriage. And my dr. would never transfer that many eggs into someone that already had 1 set of twins.

You can read the rest of my thoughts on my TWO posts about the show.

Heather Happymaker said...

You go, girl! Get it off your chest! I remember the episode in the toy store when she was barking at him to come here just like he was a dog.

Even with two kids I know that kind of frustration sometimes, but nobody, especially your husband, deserves to be treated so disrespectfully.

HarryJack's Mom said...

You said it so well! Monday was the first I've watched in years because she is so nasty - I couldn't help but notice how much her tone and words with them were exactly like her tone and words to her 5yos - it's pitiful and there's no way they can edit something that much. They are both babies, imho. A friend lived in their hometown and said the begging attitude started with the first set of twins and went thru the roof as soon as they got pregnant with the 6 - they are really despised IRL, from what I can tell. How sad it is for the children; they DO have a lot of monetary things now, but I bet every one of them would choose happy parents over all the material stuff.

D said...

The fact is the two of them brought this upon themselves. They let everything in their lives change as a result of what they're doing. Honestly, I think if they took the cameras out, had some privacy and all they might work things out but from the sound of her tone and the way she approached Kate has no desire to take that step. I do have to say that while I don't condone Jon possibly having an affair I do think that Kate's constant picking might have drove him to it. As far as the party goes it just struck me more as she was doing it to show off more then she was trying to show her kids a good time. I found the whole darn thing revolting. You mention the grandparents and family and you're correct. Kate is estranged from all of her family at the moment. One of her sister-in-laws has a blog and basically it came to light that TLC offered Jodi and Kevin, Kate's sister in law and brother, money and Kate flipped. She actually stopped talking to them because she didn't want them to break the pie up anymore between herself and Jon. I'm just struck at how sad it was and the kids are the one's that suffer.

jungletwins said...

I can't get cable in the jungle. Sigh. So I haven't seen this show in ages, but I watched a lot of it when I was in the hospital for the 5 wks preceding the twinnies birth. I agree, Kate needs to tone down the bitterness for the sake of her kids. When parents are at war it's just awful for the children. Jon and Kate both need to grow up. Its like they've lost their way. With all those cameras around it's probably easy to get a bloated sense of self importance and forget your priorities.

AmyL said...

Well said. I haven't watched the show lately, but I have often seen it and been very concerned about the way Jon and Kate treat one another. They explained it away once, saying "That's how we treat each other." I just don't see how beating up your spouse verbally is healthy. I hope the affair thing isn't true. The whole situation is very sad.

I'm going to count myself as very blessed. The first year after our older twins were born was stressful but not on our marriage. We each seem to be blessed with the ability to be oblivious to how hard a particular situation is until after we're out of it. To be honest, much of the first year is a blur. When the second set arrived four and a half years later, we were pretty well grounded and I don't recall having too much trouble getting along then either. Of course, that year is a bit blurry too. Lol.

twinmama said...

Good post, Helene. I watched the show that I have re-titled, "The Trainwreck". I will not watch it anymore because it was way too uncomfortable and I really feel sorry for all of them.

I couldn't agree more with the prior comments that marriage should be the priority and secondly children are blessed by that. Every time Jon & Kate would say, "I'm here for my kids", I would yell at the TV, "Wrong answer!"

Jenjen © GottaLoveMom said...

I haven't really seen their show but I've seen their photos while waiting in line in the grocery store...Feel bad for them and their children...

Do visit and grab some awards!

Morgan said...

I was just wondering yesterday what your thoughts were on Jon and Kate, especially the comment about families with multips. being more likely to divorce...

Pretty Personal Gifts said...

The show needs to end to save that family. I agree.

It seems like everyone attacks Kate and very few people recall Jon's rude remarks and bad behaviour. I'm not a Kate fan.

Early on Jon degrading Kate about her hair color and her physical appearance. He flat out said, this is not the girl I married. Talk about going Hollywood, isn't Jon the one who ran out and got hair transplants? They are both guilty.

Also, did anyone else hear this? When Kate was letting us all know over and over the birthday party and being alone wasn't Jon gone because of the whole night out with the other woman? I could be making that up!

I don't care for Kate or Jon, but I'm surprised at how few people recall Jon's bad behaviour and rude comments. They need to stop the show.

newlyweds said...

You summed this situation up very nicely. I personally don't blame either one of them, I think Kate is real, I think Jon is real, in the beginning they didn't have all the help and it was very stressful as we can all imagine. Think how much "real" people change who come across money, don't they get bigger houses and dress nicer? Anyways, this morning I heard that they signed on for 40 more episodes, this shocked me! I just assumed after watching the season premiere they were over it. So this really makes me question if there aren't different motives for ratings. Like maybe they are having trouble but its obviously not bad enough to not be filmed for at least 1 more year. I know previous people have said that Kate wants to continue the show and Jon doesn't, but if that were the case she couldn't legally sign up for that without him. So that means they both did!
I was hoping they would quit the show and work on their marriage, but it doesn't look like that is happening. Everyone keeps saying the kids, the kids, but what about all the other reality shows with children, are they ruined?
Also I am so mad at Kate's Brother and SIL, I can't believe they would go on TV and bash their own family, its horrible. I guess that's what jealously will do to people. Ok I just wrote a small book here. Over and Out!

WhisperingWriter said...

I just think the show needs to end. They need to work on their family. But Kate just wants the free crap. It's a sad sitution, really..

lvlc said...

I totally agree in everything you said. And as a mom of multiple your opinion has another weight.
I didn't watched the premier since she has always played the martyr and I couldn't see her doing this again with and this time with more tragedy acting. And then to listen to her grill Jon... No... I couldn't take it. I am surprise that even Jon agreed to do this season!
This people needs therapy right away! BOTH OF THEM! and I feel for the kids! :(

Yaya said...

I haven't watched this episode yet. Poor kids. Yes, she is a B and has alienated her entire family. And no, I don't feel sorry for her, she could have stopped this show long ago but she got greedy. When the show first started it was awesome. They were "real". Now it's just gone too far.

wife.mom.nurse said...

I so agree with you.

I pray for the kids sake that they can turn this around!

~Julie

Karyn said...

The reason she is estranged from her mom and dad is when she was pregnant with the sextuplets her parents got her all donations of cribs, mattresses, etc - and Kate pitched a FIT saying she didn't want mismatched CRIBS, she wanted CASH! The poor parents had to donate the stuff elsewhere... she's so friggin rude. I, personally, hope Jon DOES leave her and those kids get OFF the TV show. It's child abuse.

KT said...

I think she is heinous. Yet I still buy every magazine with this story on the cover. What a train wreck.

Zeemaid said...

This story has saddened me very deeply. It's like losing a friend in some way because we've been allowed to peek into their lives throughout the years. I've felt for Jon when she's nagged and embarrassed him but did he really communicate that to her how much it really bothers him?

Have you seen those clips where she says that yeah they snap at each other etc but that stuff goes by the way side because in the end they know they love each other and the rest is just the stress talking.

It made me feel better about when K and I snap at each other (not at the J&K level mind you) but looking back perhaps it's not okay. You can't just say those things, do those things and expect it to ALWAYS bounce off. Some of it's got to stick.

I really sincerely hope that these two will break off the show and get some marital counseling. For the good of the children. It may be hard coming home to a nagging wife or an immature husband.. it's harder coming home to nobody.

sorry long comment... :)

Zeemaid said...

oh and I haven't seen that other show you're talking about.. I'll have to keep my eye out for it.

Sweats, Nikes, and No Make-up said...

I believe that the minute Jon started feeling like he wanted to stop doing the show and go back to a "normal" lifestyle, Kate needed to pay attention to his needs and work things out there instead of ignoring him because of her own wants/desires. Seems like she's more into fame and fortune than he is at this point, but the fact of the matter is, they needed to have stopped and taken stock of their marriage before they ever decided to continue on with this season. He was reluctant to continue on even by the end of last season, and Kate seemed to just brush it aside like it didn't matter - they were going to do the show no matter what.
