“Are you kidding? He excluded them because for the most part they were absolutely horrible to him. I'll be the first to say that he wasn't always the most perfect human being, but when you're beaten as a child, told your ugly and then milked for everything you have, you tend to not like those people...
I actually just wrote about this very thing - specifically about his father. It's no wonder he had to have so much plastic surgery - anything to remove his family from his own face. It's so sad.
“I have to say, Jenny is one classy lady. I don't think I could keep it together the way she has, and while we can tell she's incredibly angry, she displays it with such dignity and pride. I don't know what I would do in her situation, I can't even imagine having to go through all this in the spotlight...I'm pretty impressed.
But either way, as a wife and a mother, I have to say, I respect her decision either way. It's tough, and an I wouldn't want to have to make the choice. I really tip my hat to her. One of our moms, who's husband did just this, wrote an article about it...it's some tough stuff:

“You're absolutely right, it is extremely difficult to watch the direction this family has taken. I found myself physically uncomfortable watching the season premiere, like this is something we aren't meant to see. Maybe it's time Jon and Kate take a step back privately, as they keep referencing it's a private matter. Actually, we were so moved by this we wrote more on it, would love to know what you guys think of it: http://www.betterwaymoms.com/articles/59-jon-kate”

“You could also...y'know...stop watching the show.
That'd be a good idea.”

“This was so hard to watch, mostly because I think they really do love each other, but they don't know what to do with all the anger. I actually felt strongly enough that I had to write about it too. I want them to succeed, whatever that looks like. Here's what I had to say: http://www.betterwaymoms.com/articles/59-jon-kate”

“I once read a great article about how to predict whether a marriage will work out, and the key is does one person have contempt for the other. Not how often do they fight, do they fight, do they love each other, are they angry. It's contempt. Kate has always shown a lot of contempt for Jon. Nothing can survive with that kind of attitude prevalant in the marriage. I say stick a fork in them; they're done. Maybe Kate can adjust her attitude for a better outcome with her next marriage.”
