Jon asks Kate to forgive him. Jon wants Kate to forgive him for everything. Will Jon and Kate reconcile? Do Jon and Kate truly love each other? Hopefully, all the answers to the questions we are asking will be a big “yes.”
For the past few months, the world has watched with bated breath as Jon and Kate have struggled with their relationship. Divorce has been filed, Jon pulled the plug on the TLC series Jon and Kate Plus 8, and Jon has been seen philandering with a handful of beautiful young women.
Jon asks Kate for forgiveness news comes shortly after it was announced that Hailey Glassman, Jon’s girlfriend and daughter of Kate’s plastic surgeon, claimed that Jon had “mantrums.” Rumor has it that Hailey and Jon are in Splitsville.
Maybe Jon wants Kate to forgive him because he finally realizes something that most people don’t realize until it’s too late: the best thing he has is at home. Yes, Kate is bossy and overbearing. Yes, Kate belittles Jon. However, everyone has their flaws. Kate put up with Jon for years, just as Jon put up with Kate. Now they have 8 children to raise together. Splitting up just isn’t logical.
Kate admitted in an interview with Natalie Morales that she’s addicted to fame. Now many speculate that Jon is addicted to fame as well. Jon asked Kate for forgiveness at a public appearance with a Rabbi. Over 70 media outlets were rumored to be present. Gather.com speculates that Jon Gosselin is a narcissist that needs to get out of the spotlight and put his family first.
Maybe Jon asked Kate for forgiveness in a public media outlet because he knows his wife. It’s what she wants. She wants everything public, on the record, etc. She thrives on fame. Maybe his public apology is his way to start to do things right for his family.
A non-scientific poll on the Gather.com Web site indicates that at the time this article was written, 56% of the voters think that Jon and Kate should move past their recent troubles. 44% think that Kate should raise the 8 children on her own. You have to vote to see the poll results.
The sad thing is about the whole situation is that each and every one of us that follow the Jon and Kate story (if you didn’t follow their story, you wouldn’t be reading this article) feed into the couples’ problems. They thrive off publicity and being in the spotlight. They crave attention. We give it to them wholeheartedly – while we are at work, at home, in the car – anywhere we listen to, read, or watch their story.
Jon and Kate should make amends. It’s hard but this is about more than just them. They need to work through Kate’s addiction and Jon’s flaws and find a way to work together. Now that Jon asks Kate for forgiveness, there’s hope for the family.
I just hope they follow through with all their positive developments.
