The much-anticipated fifth-season premiere of Jon & Kate Plus Eight arrived Monday night. The scene was the sextuplets’ fifth birthday bash, but no one – other than the Gosselin kids – was in a particularly celebratory mood.
Jon and Kate barely spoke to each other, let alone remain in the same camera frame throughout the expanded episode. And tellingly, the couple filmed their sofa confessionals separately. While Jon continued apologizing to his family, Kate said, “This could be our last family picture.”
