Two things that jinx a relationship:

1) Name Tattoos
2) Reality television show

Admittedly, Jon & Kate had a lot on their plate (ha! why wasn't that chosen as the title of the show? Jon & Kate Have a Lot on Their Plate. Brilliant!) without television cameras and a hit show on TLC, you know, with their 8 kids and all, but did they not get the memo that a reality show will ultimately result in the demise of their marriage?

Everyone knows that.

Frankly, we needn't look any further than Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey, aka The Newleyweds as proof of what a terrible idea it is to have cameras follow you around and air your private lives on television. But if we wanted to, we could cite numerous couples that have fallen prey to the reality show curse: The Hogans, Carmen Electra & Dave Navarro, Whitney & Bobby, Danny Bonaduce and the chick that married him after like a day but they somehow managed to stay together for several years despite his raging addiction problems until they went on tv., Britney and Kevin...Travis Barker and the blonde that didn't do anything besides sleep...the list goes on and on.

But I don't remember if any of them were stupid enough to publicly cheat on their spouse while their show was still airing. Apparently Jon is just that stupid. Or is allegedly that stupid, I should say. Considering one of the sources confirming the cheating is the cheat-ee's brother, who is talking to tabloids about his sister's vocalness during sex, it's a little suspect. US Weekly has quoted him as saying:

He also adds, "A lot of the time, it was pretty, um, gross listening to her, you know, um — how do I say this? The walls are thin. Let’s just say that. I mean, no one wants to hear his sister having sex, let alone with a married dude who's, like, almost twice her age and who has eight kids and a maybe-crazy wife. Ick. Nast."

Really? Had to make that up share that? It makes YOU look like a serious weirdo, kid.

I'm not sure how many people will continue to pay them lots of money for their personal appearances where they preach their Christian family values, but you can bet your ass even more people will tune in when the show returns in May. I've got my DVR set already, and I had stopped watching once it became a half hour of ads.

I'm such a voyeur.
