The Gosselins Celebrate Their Independence

The Gosselins Celebrate Their Independence

Jon and Kate Gosselin were seen celebrating Independence Day with their eight children – 8-year-old twins Mady and Cara and 5-year-old sextuplets, Aaden, Joel, Collin, Hannah, Leah and Alexis – lighting fireworks at their home in Reading, Pensylvania.

On the June 22nd episode of their popular reality TV show Jon & Kate Plus 8, the couple announced their plans to divorce. Kate stated, “Over the course of this weekend, Jon’s activities have left me no choice but to file legal procedures in order to protect myself and our children. While there are reasons why it was appropriate and necessary for me to initiate this proceeding, I do not wish to discuss those reasons at this time, in the hope that all issues will be resolved amicably between Jon and myself. As always, my first priority remains our children.”

Jon followed up with his statement: “This afternoon, Kate filed for divorce. Our kids are still my number one priority. I love them and want to make sure they stay happy, healthy and safe. My job is being the best, most supportive and loving father that I can be to my kids, and not being married to Kate doesn’t change that.”

    I LOVE THE SHOW. I DON’T KNOW WHY EVERYONE IS SO DOWN ON KATE. SHE IS A WONDERFUL MOTHER. JON IS THE ONE WHO IS ACTING LIKE HE IS 20. HE NEEDS TO GROW UP. HE IS FOR JON AND JON ONLY. YES KATE WOULD TELL HIM WHAT TO DO, BUT HE MUST OF LIKED IT OR ELSE HE WOULD OF PUT A STOP TO IT. SOME MEN ARE LIKE THAT AND NOW IT IS OH POOR ME. I PRAY FOR KATE AS SHE HAS A HARD JOB AHEAD OF HER.

    Used to be a fan of the show&fam..not so much anymore! I swear I wouldn’t be surprised if this was all a publicity stunt and they just want more attention focused on them.. I mean it worked for the season premiere.. all that controversy before it aired and what do ya know.. nearly 10 million viewers!
