The TLC series Jon & Kate Plus 8, which follows the life of Jon and Kate Gosselin and their 8 children will be put on hold. This after last nights announcement by the couple that they are getting a divorce.

They even say that episodes shot this season were usually finished last minute and often on the day of airing. I think this “time off” could give the reality family some private and needed time away from the cameras. Unfortunately I doubt the paparazzi will give them a break. I’m doubtful of the reports I have heard that Jon and Kate are still working on their marriage, but I do wish this family all the best.
