jon_n_kateOK. I’ve admitted before that one of my guilty pleasures is Reality TV. One of the shows that sucked me in to some degree is Jon and Kate Plus 8 (although I did just remove it from my DVR because I got tired of the arguing).

I’ve blogged previously about the 8 things (vote in a poll at that link too) that I believe worked to unravel Jon and Kate’s marriage.

Today I saw a headline on AOL news that stated that Jon is now seeking to stall the divorce minimizedfrom Kate by 90 days. The reason?

“I regret my conduct since Kate and I separated … I used poor judgment in publicly socializing with other women so soon.” He’s filed paperwork looking to stall the divorce for 90 days “to regain control over the future of our family.” In other news, TLC has announced that ‘Jon & Kate Plus Eight’ will now be titled ‘Kate Plus Eight,’ and Jon’s role will be minimized.

Who knows the real reason for his desire to stall at this point (parental or pecuniary). I could only hope for the sake of their 8 children that they would be able to regain some sense of control and calm over how they will guide those 8 little ones toward adulthood. However, I find this pretty weird coming on the heels of the Primetime interview jon_gf(“Family Secrets”) I saw with Jon Gosselin telling the interviewer that he was in love with his new girlfriend (loved her more than he loved Kate) and “despised” Kate.

“I can’t sit on the sofa with that woman. I can’t sit on someone right now that I despise.” (source)

He also said in that interview that he believed “our relationship will never be fixed.” Obviously,jon_head no one truly knows what is going on between Jon and Kate except Jon and Kate. No one can know completely what happened when the cameras were off between these two. And we can’t really know why Jon is now apologizing and stalling… hmm. Time will tell.
