I've gotten a poop ton of questions lately regarding the TLC show Jon & Kate Plus 8—in particular, "What is Kate's freaking problem??" In short, Kate is a businesswoman; her kids are the commodity. And her husband is a commodity, too, in that it's wildly entertaining to watch her emasculate him on a weekly basis. HOWEVER! In order for these commodities to remain viable, Kate has to watch the bottom line. For example, giving kids water. DUDE… WATER'S EXPENSIVE. So don't be too hard on Kate after seeing her deny her crying dehydrated child water, because… c'mon! The interview was about to start!
