I can still remember the first time I tuned in to Jon and Kate Plus 8.
The reality show followed the Gosselins and their extended family, made up of sextuplets and a set of twins.
They seemed like such a nice, wholesome family.
And it was interesting to follow the day to day struggles of parents raising six young children at once.
But, of course, the happy marriage dissolved in front of our eyes, and the show soon became just Kate Plus 8.
But viewers are still wondering just what happened, and what the Gosselin children are like today.
While it was obvious to viewers that Jon and Kate’s marriage was on the rocks, there are rumors that the couple tried to stick it out for the sake of their show.
But just two years after Plus 8 premiered, the Gosselins finally called it quits.
In an interview with Extra, Kate laid all the blame for the split on her ex-husband.
“I really would have thought he’d have been here for the long haul,” she explained.
“The weirdest thing is that overnight he became a different person.”
While she was focused on her family, Kate says Jon was spending his money on cars and motorcycles.
She also blames him for staying out all night while she looked after the kids.
“People closest to me thought I was crazy and making it up. When they saw it for themselves, they were like, ‘Whoa.’ They saw the proof.”
Since then, Jon and Kate have been co-parenting their children, but things haven’t been easy.
