The bad news is that Jon doesn't always hang out with Kate and the kids as much as you'd think, as this article reveals. Seriously, Jon, partying with female "friends" at a club at two in the morning isn't exactly a great example for your kids, or your viewers for that matter. At least he knows he goofed and is sorry for it.
Personally, I don't think it was a good idea for them to come back for a fifth season because they're becoming to bigger celebrities than what they probably should be. Last season's season finally clearly showed that Jon wasn't thrilled by the idea and wanted out of the public eye, but Kate sure was lovin' the spotlight and wanted to come back for more.
And "it's common to find upwards of 200 cars parked on the country road outside of their home on any given day"?? Is that safe?? They've gotta some how get off TV for a few years, just for their own personal security. People will hopefully lose interest after awhile and not become so intrusive. Money is probably the biggest issue for the Gosselin family, but they've really got to take an extensive break from TLC, maybe come back in 5 years with a special or something.
