I’ve never pretended to be cool. OK, maybe I’ve pretended but I’ve never succeeded. That’s why I have no problem admitting my slight obsession with Jon and Kate Plus 8. With respect to my husband’s wishes, I record the new episodes Monday night and watch them on Tuesday while I eat my lunch. After seeing teases for the season finale last week that eluded to the fact that Jon and Kate were having serious marital problems I told my husband I was nervous.
“Don’t tell people that,” he told me.
“I can’t help that I get attached to reality TV stars!” I replied.
So here I am admitting that I was slightly anxious over what would happen in the finale. I’m happy to report that even though the producers wanted you to think they may be splitting up, the issues were actually over whether to continue the show or not. Kate says she’s loving her life right now while Jon could do without all the fame and attention.
Will they be back for season five? That’s the big question. And one more thing I have to be nervous about.
