Jon & Kate Plus 8‘s new season premiered on TLC this week, making it the most watched reality show episode of all time on TLC. Almost 10 million viewers tuned in to watch the couple discuss their martial problems. Us Weekly had reported Jon had an affair with a 23-year-old teacher, and Kate is “inseparable” from her bodyguard.
The ratings were excellent in comparison to the season finale of Lost which attracted less viewers, at 9.2 million. The premiere doubled the Season 4 finale of Jon & Kate, which had 4.6 million viewers.
On Monday’s show, both Jon and Kate who have been married for nearly 10 years, admitted they weren’t sure about their future.
“I don’t know…parents of multiples have, like, triple the divorce rate, and I was thinking we were gonna beat that. I don’t know if I can say that anymore,” Kate said on camera.
It seems to me that the couple needs some sort of family counseling away from the spotlight, and time to work on their marriage.

We have finally gotten our hands of the infamous mugshot of Danielle Staub. This comes directly from the book, Cop Without A Badge. Also shown below are 2 pages containing Danielle aka Beverly Merrill’s story.
The Cop Without A Badge book is suppose to be an autobiographical tale of Kevin Maher, a former criminal turned Cop informant.
The gist of the story is that the main character in the book, Kevin, encounters Danielle and takes interest in her. Only to find out she is a stripper with a recent arrest and run in with the law. The run in with the law includes assisting a drug dealer in kidnapping and extortion. All of this allegedly took place in 1986. Interesting.
Kevin would go on to help Danielle get a good plea deal with the FBI. The two ended up dating on and off for 5 years eventually ending things in 1990. During this period Danielle and Kevin got married, but the marriage wasn’t exactly legal as Kevin was still married at the time. Kevin went on to state he last saw Danielle stripping in 1992.
The star of the Real Housewives of New York City star, Bethenny Frankel, is never one to shy away from showing off some skin. And can you blame her? She does have a great body.
She however seemed to be a little to open with showing off as TMZ posted the below photo of her on their site. The photo was taken recently during a signing for her new book, Naturally Thin. Not really sure what was going on in this photo, or why it was taken, but it definitely screams out trashy classy.
Last night’s episode of The Real Housewives of NJ as a pretty good one, but it is the previews for next week’s episode that has everyone buzzing. As it promises to reveal secrets about Danielle Staub’s past.
The accusations being thrown out about Danielle include her being an ex stripper, being involved in kidnapping and the Colombian cartel. While the accusations were being leveled against her, the above book – Cop Without A Badge, was shown, as it was discussed that Danielle was in the book along with her mugshot. (The above pic is a picture of Danielle from 2000 by the way).
I have searched everywhere and this mugshot has yet to hit the Internet. I will be sure to post it here the minute I find it. The above book also only seems to be available on amazon.com. The book is about an ex criminal turned cop informant. A man name Kevin Maher is the subject of the book.
So how does Danielle tie into all this? Well it is rumored that Kevin Maher is Danielle’s brother, and that Danielle’s maiden name is Maher. So the guess is Kevin, while talking about his life of crime might have implicated his sister, Danielle, as well.
Star Magazine’s latest issue is also reporting that Danielle was arrested last night for allegedly not paying her attorneys. Supposedly, she has been unable to pay off her lawyers due to the face that her ex husband, a manufacturer of exercise equipment, has yet to pay her divorce settlement. The lawyer fees are said to be in six figures so it’s safe to say her settlement money could be in the millions. There is also suppose to be a mugshot from this incident but the cops have yet to release it.
We will continue to get more updates and details on this story. Perhaps people with too many closet skeletons should avoid reality shows. Just a thought Danielle.
Jon and Kate Plus 8′s latest season premiered last night in what seemed like one of the worst train wrecks to ever hit reality TV. The show was rather painful and quite awkward to watch. If it wasn’t obvious before that these two were headed towards the Big “D” word also known as a divorce, it is now from watching their show.
Kate continued to be her typical controlling self and made it a point to let we the viewers know that she was doing everything all by herself, six times to be exact. We also learned that Jon needed a weekend off (to visit his alleged girlfriend perhaps?) leading to Kate planning the kids’ birthday party all by herself.
Kate confirmed that she feared she and Jon might be separating saying, “I am thinking this possibly could be our last family picture together,” she says of a photo taken at the sextuplets’ 5th birthday party. “I don’t know…parents of multiples have, like, triple the divorce rate, and I was thinking we were gonna beat that. I don’t know if I can say that anymore. Very swiftly, we turned into two different people, and that’s just hard. I’ve tried for six months to figure out what the problem is, or remedy the problem. It’s so complicated.”
Kate tried to play the role of the victim/scorned woman, failing miserably because she continued to come of as bitchy controlling. Perhaps she should stop ordering her husband around, or maybe she should try treating him as an adult sometimes instead of her 9th kid.
Overall, this is all very sad, mainly because there are 8 kids involved in this mess created by the adults. While one can only hope they can find a way to make it work, it seemed very apparent from last night’s episode that they have both thrown in the towel.
MSNBC is reporting that all of the New York housewivesincluding Kelly Bensimon will be returning for the 3rd season.
The housewives are said to have signed a new deal that will be paying each of them close to $30,000 per episode. Guess it really does pay to be an ass on national television uh? The same article goes on to say the husbands who get paid nothing, are also trying to negotiate a salary for themselves.
In other news, someone posted this genius spoof of the Reunion show. You have to see this!
Following all the rumors and controversy surrounding the Gosselin family, Kate Gosselin is finally admitting to “everything’s falling apart” in her marriage. Hopefully, the season 5 premier of Jon and Kate plus 8 tonight on TLC will shed more light on the truth. Kate says, “I feel like the world is sitting on my shoulders.” Several tabloids and blogs have painted Kate as a being a monster even though pictures have shown her husband cheating with a younger woman.
Both Jon and Kate, who have been married for about 10 years now speak to the camera separately on the show. In previous shows, they have always given their testimonials as a couple. Kate has vowed not to give up.
UsWeekly has reported that Jon Gosselin now lives in an apartment above the garage of their $1.1 million home. Short-tempered Kate has reportedly fired 40 staffers in three months. She is also accused of being in an affair with her bodyguard.
The premier clip which carried the tagline, “There are two sides to every story,” urges fans to watch the fifth season premiere to see Jon and Kate face each other for the first time.
Tell us what you think following the show tonight.
