PlumBumMum Thu 18-Jun-09 21:31:22

cookielove Thu 18-Jun-09 21:31:37

i seem to always forget it is on, but try and catch it, good i'm so glad i'm not the only one!!

cookielove Thu 18-Jun-09 21:32:47

when i was on holiday, there was lots of magazines about it, apparently he has had an affair with a college student and she has had an affair with a bodyguard.

Never heard of it!

I have to admit that I love watching it - but only the reruns in the afternoon as dh will not watch it (claims that he would kill her if he had to live with her)...

I just love to see the organisation...how she manages (I know she has loads of help!) etc, it gives me hope for my house!

cookielove Thu 18-Jun-09 21:35:11

how have you never heard of it, i can explain if you want?

choufleur Thu 18-Jun-09 21:37:27

i love - there was another programme on E the other day (can't you tell i just love quality television - i'm a fan of ANTM and BNTM btw as well) about the ups and downs of their relationship. Apparently she is a bitch to work for and has sacked loads of nannies for not doing things the way she wants them done.

PlumBumMum Thu 18-Jun-09 21:38:05

poorbuthappy my dh is the same so I end up watching them in all different orders,
she gets me motivated even if she is abit OCD

I didn't realise they earned so much an episode something like $75000

choufleur Thu 18-Jun-09 21:38:18

have you ever watched the other programme on the same sky channel about the family with about 15 kids? Their names all being with 'J' - very odd.

cookielove Thu 18-Jun-09 21:39:08

there was also stuff saying she doesn't like her friends that live in that big house or her relations to get paid for being on the show, but so much of it i think is hype.

oooh i also love antm and bntm

cookielove Thu 18-Jun-09 21:40:22

they are goona need that money for education and stuff, ooh yeah i watched the j family, is that 13 kids and counting, or something like that, they are completly solvent?

choufleur Thu 18-Jun-09 21:42:29

oh god i'm so sad - yes they owe no money and built their own house.

I've often thought MN was lacking a J&K thread. He is a big kid, she takes too much control - (can't blame her, she's got 8 kids you know).

There was a programme recently in the US at the start of season 5 talking about their relationship. There was a huge space between them on the sofa.

She has gone a bit celeb by all accounts, and he is partying with a teacher, whos brother was on the J&K 'E special' being trashy and cheap, insinuating things.

I have tried to download the first of the new series, but can't, and there are several Facebook groups.

No, do not feed my addiction please grin

cookielove Thu 18-Jun-09 21:44:07

yeah did you see the decor!!! v interesting, reminded me of little house on the prarie sp?

cookielove Thu 18-Jun-09 21:53:06

Ohforfoxsake - glad i could meet your needs starting this thread.

you can catch specials on u tube, like when then went to disney world and renewed their vows and stuff

Haven't seen new house, just when they were house hunting

The family with the 17 children are The Duggars!They had their home decorated on Extreme homes (move that bus show)?!

PlumBumMum Thu 18-Jun-09 22:09:46

Extreme makeover? maybegrin

PlumBumMum Thu 18-Jun-09 22:10:27

There are mn'ers called Jonandhate and Madugger grin

littleducks Thu 18-Jun-09 22:13:19

i loved it but it is turning a bit sour

kate has gone a bit showbiz i agree, they used to be so lovely and normal but since the move to 'the big house' its all gone weird

jon no longer works and kate works by travelling all over the country doing speeches etc. which obv is money for them but is so different to when the show started

i hope for them and their kids sake that they all make it well

(dh downloaded series 4 and beg of 5 for me)

I love Jon and Kate plus 8. We were in Canada last year and I was really excited because a new series had just started and I got to watch it over there, yes I am that sad.
It's now been shown here so we've seen all of it, or most of it as there were episodes I watched in Canada that they haven't shown here.
Apparently though we are about 2 series behind them in the states, so goodness knows when we'll see them all. I love to watch it because the sextuplets are 11 days older than my dd2, so they've all just turned 5, but in the episodes on tv they are only 3.
I love how organised Kate is, I only have 2 kids and I'm not organised at all.
