While Jon and Kate Gosselin go through the ugly business of divorce, they’ve entered a rare period of media silence while their show goes on an unexpected hiatus. And so Monday’s episode was a look back on their ten years of marriage that highlighted primarily the bright moments, which spurred Jezebel to make this video, a clip filled with signs of relationship doom.
The immediate take on this is “Wow, Kate’s the most controlling awful bitch on the planet.” And maybe she is. But there’s also something to be said for Jon’s mastery of passive-aggressive behavior and lack of interest in raising eight toddlers. Hell, Jon wasn’t excited about having a third kid, then she was all, “Surprise, we’re having six more!” I’m not a marriage counselor, but I do like pointing out obvious things, so I think that might have been a turning point in the relationship.
