Recap: 'Jon and Kate Plus 8' Returns With Little of Jon


There was hardly any communication between estranged couple Jon and Kate Gosselin other than meeting the needs of their children.

"Jon & Kate Plus 8", which has lost some of its original essences, premiered a brand new episode on Monday, August 3 after the show went for a month hiatus to give the family a personal time. Titled "Renovations & Vacations", the premiere was two hours of kitchen remodeling and fun-filled activities for the kids.

Most of the time, Jon Gosselin and Kate Gosselin were not in the same room. The first hour of the episode focused on the reconstruction of their huge kitchen in the Virginia home. Kate took her kids, a twin and sixtuplets, to Bald Head Island beach in North Carolina while Jon stayed behind to administer the renovation. And when Kate and the kids were back, Jon already left.

During a solo camera interview, Kate revealed her stand point. "This was my first official turn with the kids," she said. "It didn't feel very much different. It just felt more like the future."

The remaining 30 minutes of the show were dedicated to the backyard camp session. Kate, learning to be a single parent, struggled with setting up a tent. Her children innocently gave comments such as "daddy knows what those are for!" and "daddy knows everything about a tent!" Kate answered shortly, "Well, he's not here".

Kate did admit that it was a "very, very difficult time" for them. However, she was heading forward, saying "But my main goal is to make this transition as easy and painless for the kids as possible."

Following the separation announcement in June, Jon and Kate have agreed to take separate parenting. Jon has taken residency in New York City while Kate remains in Virginia with the kids.
