Secrecy and Shame – Plus 8

An unnamed Ten shares a little schadenfreude with us:

My fiancee and I used to love watching the show Jon and Kate Plus 8, because the little kids were cute and their situation was interesting. Over time, both of us got less comfortable with their materialism, Jon’s immaturity and Kate’s bossiness so we stopped watching (although she will watch it when I am not around).

So now there is all of this drama around Jon stepping out on Kate. Number one, I shamefully read the Us Weekly reports of Jon’s shenanigans. Number two, the new season of Jon and Kate Plus 8 is coming in a few weeks, and I am so excited to see the conflict that emerges between them.

Ooooh…. schadenfreude. It’s so wrong, but it feels so good.

    I’ve watched this show a couple times and it is bizarrely compelling, even though I have mixed feelings about those sorts of multiple births. Well, who am I to judge?

    Anyway, after reading your story, I feel the need to google this to see the latest gossip on Jon stepping out. I think even the most enlightened among us is tempted by schadenfreude.
