It is easy to blame Kate for being so bossy. However, TLC is not an innocent bystander. They ordered far too many episodes for this young family, waving money in the face of the Gosselins that they could not refuse.
With Jon's photos with his new honey in the south of France, I would not be at all surprised if TLC shows only the episodes already filmed and cancels the show. Do we really want to see the kids melt down on air or when Jon shows up with the girlfriend? And you thought Mady was a problem before all of this?
