Who is her demographic? Henpecked men who are also masochists? Shrewish cows who want everyone around them to be as miserable as they are?

Ideally, it will be a submissive man with a network camera for a head.

I read the article...holy shiat, it will be a DATING show.

The number one thing that single guys are looking for are women who have a litter of young children. Why date that cute Shoney's hostess with the nose ring when you could go out with Kate Gosselin:

Here's hoping the show is called "hot dog in a hallway"

Last I heard she was shopping the idea but no one was buying.

If you watch this, fark you. You epitomize everything wrong with modern culture and you should have your voting rights stripped and you should be forcibly sterilized.

/Only half-joking.

I'd watch it if we also got to see Jon critiquing the date.

She really does not give a damn about her kids, does she?

Yes, parents are allowed to have a life outside of their kids. Their own friends and hobbies. But to drag her kids around or worse, ignore them in her maddening pursuit of fame, that's horrible parenting.
 
2012-08-05 10:45:16 AM  
hey if my choice is human garbage or another wacky sidekick dramedy about lawyers or cops or doctors then sign me up for Survivor XXX, Tonya Harding Edition.

It's LAWYERDOCTORCOP, the gritty hit urban drama with as much cursing and violence as we can get away with. Watch LAWYERDOCTORCOP and his sidekick: LifeSupportForAVagina, the genius-IQ computer cyberpunk barely-legal teen nudist every Wednesday at 8. Also, did we mention Joss Whedon used the bathroom in our area of the studio and didn't flush so we ate the used toilet paper to gain his power. When all else fails, justice has a new name- LAWYERDOCTORCOP.

Largely it would depend on her financial standing.

Plain and simple, a 40-hour a week job for her just isn't going to support that many kids at that age. Even with alimony payments she could work 80 hours a week and not make ends meet. Were talking about feeding them, clothing them, covering taxes, a mortgage on a house that will hold them, etc.

If she was smart with her money the first time around I can't see why there wouldn't be enough to live off of the dividends. The house and car should have been bought outright. With a book deal and that many seasons on TV it should be enough for a good financial investor to keep them afloat.

....unless she or her ex went and got stupid with the money or it all got tied up in the divorce so that none of it can be used to sustain them.

I don't have any real sympathy here. To me it's largely a case of "if you can't sustain that many by normal means then don't have them." On her best behavior she was a harpy shrew in front of the camera. Odds are the kids are already damaged.

At best I think she can get another deal and be smart with her money this time.

Coming this Fall: Kate plus Date. This time, she's doing him for the kids.

1. America watches ever more reality TV;
2. Romney is elected president, because nobody paid attention to the issues due to 1,; and
3. America ends not with a bang but a whimper.

No profit in this scenario
 
2012-08-05 11:20:27 AM  
I'd watch 8 dudes bang her. Not this though. This will suck.
 
2012-08-05 11:38:20 AM  
The reality show would only be worth shiat if it was making her do Jackass stunts while giving her $5 if she does it without breaking her smile.
 
2012-08-05 12:15:17 PM  
Eight in Kate.

I...would actually watch that(for about a week,anyway).
 
2012-08-05 01:02:52 PM  
I gave my idea for a perfect hook for this show about a week ago when a previous thread ran -- at the end of each episode, her date punches her in the mouth. For the season's finale, the date takes a baseball bat to her.

Can someone PLEASE farking close the door on the politics tab, and turn on the electric farkwad fence again? At least one a day gets loose and shiats all over non-politics threads. Are they just farking like retard bunnies in there due to the upcoming election cycle? Are we going to retard locusts plague on the website for the next year? Romney Ron Paul Obama Bush robble robble robble?

I'd rather people try to argue with GD and the bevets bot all at once.

Yes, taking away suffrage would be going way too far.

My grandparents raised 10 kids in a shiatty South Philly rowhouse.
Two became doctors, many others were educators. All but one or two rose out of poverty and went to college, and led pretty darn productive lives.

So, yes, it can be done.

This. Reality TV needs to die a long, painful death; so that no one may repeat this mistake until the end of time.
 
2012-08-06 02:58:16 PM  
Do not, will not, watch anything connected to this woman unless it's an announcement that starts "among the dead were....".

TLC must stand for "Toilet Load of Crap", why else would they be giving us this and "Honey Boo Boo".
