Kate's Diabolical Divorce Plan?

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

Wow -- this is a mess! The Associated Press blasted all over the wires that the Gosselins have been living apart for at least two years -- but they're wrong!

jon and kate live separate

Now they're correcting themselves, and TMZ has the real story.

Apparently, Pennsylvania is a no-fault state for divorce. If a husband and wife agree that the marriage is totally over, then the divorce can proceed. This is where it gets sticky, reports TMZ. Apparently there are two boxes to check as to why a couple is divorcing -- "irretrievably broken" and "living separate and apart for two years." Kate, to hurry things up, checked both boxes. Why? Because if Jon gives her flack and says the marriage ISN'T broken, she can just wait two years, and it will be all she wrote anyway. TMZ says Kate's "hedging her bets."

Kate is a woman who knows what she wants!

It may be a little calculating, but it’s far from diabolical. Jeez. What a misleading title for this article.

She doesn’t seem like the sharpest tack, my guess is that she just didn’t understand the form…

Pamala June 23, 2009, 9:22 PM

Seems to me that it’s a misunderstanding of the form, which makes sense because frankly I could hardly understand the forms I filled out. Clearly they haven’t been living apart for more than two years because the show says different.

I am surprised that the media hasn’t questioned Kate’s statement she made just yesterday. She stated that due to what Jon did last weekend,she was forsed to file for divorce to protect her and her children. What did Jon do last weekend-that the million dollar question! Was it his trip to the big apple where he was spotted looking at condo’s at one of Trumps places? Kate surely isn’t accustomed to Jon doing things that she hasn’t given him her permission to do. She would never approve of NYC, that’s 3 hours away from her. Jon wants to make sure it’s far enough away from hearing Kate SCREAM out his name, as she so loves to do! Jon is smart, he’s planning ahead finally.

Kate-what is the big rush for a divorce all about? Is checking off that you and Jon have been separated for 2 years, when you haven’t such a good idea? After all you stated with tears in your eyes that you don’t want to be alone. You are alone, because you disowned your own family! They could be there for you and your kids right now, helping you and supporting you through this sad time. I feel so sorry for your kids! They have to grow up , not only in a broken home-but with no aunts, uncles, grandparents and cousins, all because of you!Maybe your marriage is over, but your family is waiting for you to make ammends with them, so they can be there for you and mainly your children.You say you do everything for your kids well beings. Well, reunite with your family for them. It’s the best gift you can ever give them!

Who cares? Maybe this will be the end of that lame show

Lets not completely blame Kate. That’s not fair at all. Doesn’t anyone remember that Jon had his “affair” with that young teacher? Regardless if Kate is a terrible person, Jon should of been able to keep it in his pants. Period. You can’t blame Kate for the marriage infidelity. Jon is a big boy, he could of taken up skateboarding instead of dating. Give Kate some time. Having been through a divorce, where my husband cheated on me, this is a terrible feeling.

Has anyone ever thought that maybe no one cheated in this marriage? Maybe Jon & Kate were already “separated” in regards to their marriage, but living in the same house and keeping up appearances the best they can. Maybe they had an agreement that they were allowed to see other people, but chose to not make anything public until now. Who cares why their marriage failed, it’s their private issue to deal with, not ours.

Well Well look at you all pointing the finger and casting the judgement stones…Shame on you..How discusting the things you all are saying.. This woman who is a human being is going through the absolute worst time in her life.. She has done nothing wrong.. What, she was a little controlling big deal.. Ladies ask your self honestly who wouldnt have the need to be in contol in a situation like that.. With 8 kids someone needed to & of course like in most situations it falls on the Mommy to make it happen.
She has done the best she could in her situation.. And poor baby Jon could’nt hadle the pressure OH please…
I ask any of you out there reading this to search deep inside of you and ask your self how would you deal with the same situation.. Shame on Jon for his behavior. Not Kate.. He can say he did’nt have an affair all he want’s but he had absolutely no business hanging out with another woman..What would you have done had that been your husband?? Would that have been ok with it?? NO!!
Jon is clerly going through something..And as if her husband cheating on her was not enough..
She has to have people talking crap & bashing her that have absolutely no clue. To start questioning her mothering. For CPS to investigate her..For her brother & jealous sister in law to go on national T.V. and talk bad about her. OMG & you wonder why she dose’nt talk to her family. Why would she want to. And that brings me to another point you can give this woman hell all you want for putting her life & her kids lives on reality T.V. but if someone offered you some money & the oppertunity. Every single one of you out there would jump at the chance. Including that snooty jealous sister in law of hers. You do not know the whole story you only know what is shown on the show. After editing mind you.
Do not be so judgemental.
It’s absolutely crazy. I mean come on people leave her alone.

Her lawyer probably filled it out for her and that’s likely the way they always do it. We’re attributing too much knowledge and intent on Kate’s side.

This is like when the media reports that CA celebrity couples cite “irreconcilable differences” for their divorce. Hello! That’s the only box you can check!

Excuse me…first of all, even Kate pointed out on their Monday night show that Jon was the one who filed for divorce so some of you need to get your facts straight. And, as for leaving her alone, Angel, Kate does not want to be alone. All of us viewers, yes, do have an opinion and a viewpoint, right or wrong. None of us and I do mean NONE of us viewers will ever truly know what honestly was the last straw for Jon. And yes, Kate and Jon BOTH deserve to be chastised for the loss of their commitment to their marriage. Jon could not take another dose of Kate, people. She is just too much negativity, according to an interview Jon did. He is so tired of being demeaned by her and he is sorry for putting up with it for so long so that is why he took the initiative to start divorce proceedings. Kate said on their show that the divorce/separation was Jon’s idea. No, stepping out on one’s vows is never okay but Jon might have been too wacked out at the time and did say he was sorry for his actions, but never, NEVER confirmed an affair.

Deanne June 24, 2009, 5:20 PM

Oh, and as for why she is estranged from her own brother and sister-in-law? That was ALL Kate’s doings before becoming “famous.” Apparently, Kate is on the cover of People magazine for sale this Friday. In the issue, Kate is stated as saying that she is tired of tabloids and magazines painting her out to be obsessed with the money and fame and so she is coming out in a magazine, People, to give side of the story. Seems a little bent, don’t ‘cha think? Using a magazine that has a high draw of patrons to clear your a$$ and reputation? As for raising 8 kisd, I am the mom to 9 single born kids and I have never and would never treat my hubby the way she has Jon. Kate has no platform or excuses to use to support the way she abuses Jon.

Poor Jon. Hes a wimp and his wife or X to be is going to take that sap to the cleaners on the divorse. She will make out well on child support and everything else she can rip him off.
Jon needs to meet with her and take charge of his divorce. He needs to set her stright on child support and she gets ONLY 100.00 a week for the 8 mistakes he made. If thats not enough for her let her work her body on the street to make $$.
Trouble with most men there gutless wimps. Jon be a man and stand up to that Ho. If she won’t listen beat the hell out of her and let her know she will be held accountable for the actions of the judge and her lawyer.
If they lock you up Jon when you get out of jail hunt her down and cut her face so bad no Dr could save it…. Be a man annd take charge!!! And good luck

I think the press is the problem in jon&kates marriage.They should be left alone to fiqure out their problems.And what they decide is for the best ,but they should really put the children first and whats good for them

Patty June 24, 2009, 9:26 PM

In my opinion, no one has the right to step out on a marriage before trying absolutely everything to make it work. If Jon was unhappy, he should have discussed counseling with his wife and tell her how he felt, whether he cheated or not, it looked like emotionally he was and to me, that’s the same thing. Was Kate overbearing, probably, remember what was seen on tv was edited. Did Jon talk back to her, yes on many occasions. It is no one’s place to judge her and I so feel for her and the embarassment of what the media is making of the whole mess….divorce is a mess no matter how amicable you try to make it. I’m sure she has an attorney and that attorney filled out and filed the paperwork, so it may not have been her that checked the box!

Trina June 25, 2009, 12:08 AM

Jon hired a PI to investigate Kate & her bodyguard 6 months before his alleged affair. They both played dirty. Though I have to say, I give him credit for putting up with her for all these years! She’s nuts!

kandi cicatko June 26, 2009, 5:56 AM

i dont even know y people would want to watch jon&kate plus eight. me i think the show is boring and stupid. i hope jon and kate get a divorce and do it soon so maybe their lousy show will permanently stay off the air. I dont like jon and kate plus eight.

Patsy June 27, 2009, 9:06 AM

Wow! Divorce is very hard on everyone and it takes two to tango. Blame the women! Get real! all we know about Jon and Kate is what the T.V producers want us to see “Not what might be really going on” So please don’t judge. Look at the media and the titles they are giving about Kate they just want a storey and are making her the scapegoat! That is the problem with women they never ever band together because of Jealousy however MEN stick together no matter what! Makes me sad to be a women!

regina June 28, 2009, 3:19 PM

Well so much for all the fame and glory now you have a broken home.Money cannot buy happiness and it takes two to make a marriage and two people to destroy it those poor kids all this for nothing.
