The Gosselin's New Home

If you're a Jon & Kate Plus 8 fan, you certainly tuned in to last night's episode to catch a glimpse of their new home. It was quite impressive from the view we saw on TV - gorgeous kitchen, huge living room, spacious EVERYTHING! I kept thinking at some point they would show a view of the entire outside, but they didn't. And it got me to thinking, "I wonder why they haven't shown an outside view." So, being the Google search guru that I am, I looked it up:













Price: $1.3 million
Square Footage: 6200
Bedrooms: 5
Bathrooms: 5 full, 2 half

Book sales must be good!

I used to really enjoy this show, but as the seasons progress, Kate has become more disrespectful to Jon. Last night she threw a fit about a coupon, and then said, "This is why I can't let you out of the house." She constantly talks down to him, always cuts off his sentences, rolls her eyes at most of his comments, need I go on? Yes, the kids are cute. Yes, I'm sure having 8 of them is stressful (I get stressed with just 3).

But I do not believe that God said, "Wives, respect your husbands...unless you have 8 children and give interviews to TLC."

I've had this conversation with a friend before, and I keep wanting to give Kate the benefit of the doubt - that perhaps they just edit it this way. If they film for a week and cram all of these comments into one, half-hour show, I suppose many wives would have a handful of eye rolls and snippy comments. But I don't know. She still seems a bit over-the-top.

I totally agree. Her personality sets a bad example for me... sometimes I am abrasive or curt with my husband. When they show footage from when J and K were first dating, they both had different personalities. I know that four years of marriage has changed our personalities a little, and I sure hope that adding kids to the mix doesn't change us (ME!) that much.

What a deluxe house. And deluxe pool! I see a "pool safety" episode coming up!

I've thought the same thing quite often through the years of watching their show - but...I'm going to give her the benefit of the doubt. I'm going to choose (maybe naïvely) that you are right when you suggest that maybe they pack a week's worth of negative comments and body language into 1/2 an hour. If you read her book I think you might find it hard to believe she truly treats him this way all the time as well. (I wonder why shows tend to edit that way...I don't think they do this with the Duggars do you?)

Well... if you keep up on the dirt online..:-) I don't think it is edited that way at all. I have read numerous things from people who live in the same area as them, not to mention a video with "aunt jodi" on it and speaking about how Kate took her off the show because they were going to start paying her, and Kate said the only people who get paid are her and Jon. So I think that unfortunatley fame has changed them... kate knows people watch her for her attitude, so she keeps stepping it up. Notice each season is a little worse... it's so sad....

I got turned off of what Jon and Kate had gotten the family into now. I don't think they need a mansion for a better house and Kate seems so smug about it. I was hoping for more humility and sensitivity from them considering on how they had a humble beginning. I think with the success they're becoming more of the upper middle class family and it's hard to identify with them anymore. I hope they stayed consistent with their middle class ways and values. That's what had made them endearing in the first place. A family who is struggling to make a big family survive yet remained grateful and happy.

It makes me think that there may be some legitimate reason on Aunt Jodie's grunting.... hmmmm...

I agree completely. She is so disrepectful, and acts like she is the queen of all, and she treats Jon terrible. My husband can't stand the show due to Kate Gosselin. Madie is becoming just like Kate.

I think there is something wrong with Maddy...she just seems really affected by all of this. She is very rude and awful.
The new house is gorgeous and does seem indulgent...but lets hope they appreciate all of this that's come to them.
Really, they had an opportunity and they took it. If anyone could stand having a camera crew constantly with them...i think many people would take advantage.

I was a bit irritated when Kate didn't even seem excited about their beautiful new house. They had crews moving them in and she's rolling her eyes and huffing and puffing about the dirt left behind from the previous owners. We get it, you're neat. She was even asked by a crew member if she was excited. She replied with an ungrateful sigh and a comment that she WILL be when everything was put away. I can't muster up pity for the work needed to settle into a million dollar home.

I just started watching the show and the little time I have I do see a lot of criticism toward Jon. At times I don't see her happy and I feel a lot of her frustrations are taken out on Jon. Almost that she is unhappy with ALL the kids and hardly any alone time for herself OR her husband. Not saying she is unhappy with the kids or having the kids but...having 8 all under 12, thats A LOT!

I know Kate is irritable and yells at Jon sometimes but it is stressful especially with cameras that is why they bicker so much. They are a great family and are doing a great job with their kids, all people get along differently.

I'm wondering where all of you anonymous people are coming from! ;o) I still don't think Kate's attitude and disrespectful nature towards Jon can be dismissed just because they are in front of cameras. Often times I just cringe when I think that they profess to be Christians.

I know that is not John and Kate's house beacuse they do not have a pool. I also remember seeing the episode where they showed teh children the house and the driveweay did not have bushes around it. And aslo, Kate is "rude" to John beacuse they have 8 children and she likes everything to be in great order.
I have 4 childrena and I get like that also beacuse they are coreded in that house. KAte is stressed with all of her children beacsue of their age. Madi is very over dramatic I think she is going through early puberty my daughter did. Buta anyways, John and Kate love each other and that's how it is, Kate is just stressed I guess. Hack, if i had 8 little kids i would be 2! lol

kate needs to remember that what goes around comes around...she might be at the top of things now but she must remember that God is in controll.If he wants he can take it all away.I hope that she realizes it and not wait until its to late.

What baffles me the most is Kates whacked up hair! Who is doing this to her...yikes.
On a different note, I would not give up the chance to live in a million dollar home. The G's did not hurt or steal from another to obtain what they have achieved to this day..it is morally theirs.
