Jon & Kate Plus 8 Revived for One-Hour TLC Special
There are some things we definitely need a second helping of. Mashed potatoes? Pass that bowl on over. Ice cream? After the potatoes, but yes, please. Jon & Kate Plus 8? Hard pass. HARD pass.
It’s not that we don’t get a rubbernecking thrill from watching the Gosselins wreak havoc on the world of reality TV. In fact, we’re kind of junkies for the type of high-octane drama that family whips up like Walter White cooked up Blue Sky on Breaking Bad. But a one-hour special? What could that possibly include?
Short answer: a lot. In the more than two years since we waved goodbye to Kate and her flock of little Gosses on TLC, plenty has happened between the mother of eight and her now ex-husband, Jon. While most of it has played out in vivid colors across tabloids nationwide, TLC insists there’s even more we haven’t seen. When we’ll see it, however, they’re not saying yet.
“The special promises to touch on how all eight kids have grown,” People magazine reports. “Viewers will also get a look back at some of the Gosselins’ favorite memories.” Well, with that kind of criteria, eight kids, and plenty of memories to go through, now we're kind of surprised it’s only 60 minutes!
