Jon & Kate Plus 8: About to Announce their Separation or the End of the TLC Show?

Viewers of Jon & Kate Plus 8 know, that unless they’ve been living with their head under a rock, the show’s leading man and lady are struggling with their relationship, and this week’s promotional clips by TLC for the next show allude that they might be finally splitting up. The brief clip shows previous portions of the show where Jon & Kate are engaging in tense interactions or avoiding each other altogether; and the end of the promotional piece says that Jon and Kate are about to reveal some life changing news on Monday’s episode.

During a voice over by Kate during the clip, she reveals that “Recently we’ve made some life-changing decisions. Decisions that will affect every member of our family, ones we hope that will bring each of us some peace.” While the obvious speculation is that Jon and Kate are splitting up, it’s also possible that they’re taking some time off to work on their marriage and putting their TLC show Jon & Kate Plus 8 behind them…that is, if they can get out of their network contract. Or maybe, this is all just another publicity stunt to increase ratings that have been declining since season 5 of Jon & Kate Plus 8 premiered a few weeks ago, and viewers will tune in only to discover that Jon and Kate will be going into therapy, or getting rid of their newly acquired dogs, or sending their children to private school.

What do you think Monday’s big announcement will be on Jon & Kate Plus 8?
