Take for example a headline I saw probably a year or more ago. One of the tabloids had a picture of Katie Holmes and her daughter Suri on the cover and was saying something about the "shocking" life and how they were basically being abusive. The three things they listed were: No TV, No McDonalds and I think the last was something about Immunizations (I think). I thought...well good for them (on the McD's and TV at least). That little girl will maybe grow up a little healthier than most. Anyway...that's not really what prompted me to write this post.
Any Jon and Kate watchers out there? I'm not an avid watcher by ANY means, but occasionally I will watch it while I'm cleaning the house. But who can help but notice everything in the mags lately? My heck! So I did watch most of the episode last night and read an article leading up to the episode because the whole thing seems so sad. I kept hoping...maybe they won't really get divorced. Maybe they are going to announce that they are quitting the show to focus on their relationship and repair their marriage. But no...the marriage is over. I read another article later about it (I had missed parts of the show...I'm lame, I know, I'm too busy for this...). They quote them as saying "the last 10 months have been hard, the last 4-5 months have been very hard" or something like that and then BOOM...marriage over. They have been married for 10 YEARS and a few difficult months and they are DONE? Don't get me wrong. I know things can change quickly and some things make a marriage beyond repair. And I'm sure there are things the reporters haven't discovered yet that are going on that have contributed to the demise of the relationship. I have good friends that have gone through divorce and sometimes that just how it happens. But I just feel so bad about that whole situation. And I'm kind of irritated they are planning on continuing the show. I don't think they realize what this really is going to do to the kids. I don't think I'd want to have the whole world watching while I watched my parents fall apart. Anyway...is anyone else bothered by that whole situation? I just wish they could work it out for their cute little kids.
Oh can I also just say it drives me nuts when they publish "shocking" pictures of celebs without makeup. Thank goodness I don't have someone following me around with a camera 24 hours a day. People are just people after all.
