My poor daughter. I do wonder what psychological damage reality tv has wrought. As a teen she love love loved Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica. And we know how that ended.

I’ve written a couple times about the Gosselins (here and here), of particular interest to us because Kate conceived both sets of multiples through in vitro fertilization. So I thought it fitting to provide closure.

It was filed in response to a network lawsuit alleging Gosselin failed to meet his obligations to TLC. (The network has said it retains an exclusive talent arrangement with him, as well as the rest of the family.)
In a separate matter, Gosselin was ordered to return $180,000 to a joint account he shared with his estranged wife….
