You would never be heard from again other than the .99 DVD bin at the grocery store.A few very good series got a reunion episode or two, or even a movie, but that was rare.Benevolent Kate says she still loves Ashley, Ashley can do no wrong, and it's up to Ashley whether she would like to keep on loving them in return or not. Why can't she understand this has nothing to do with Ashley's love for the children, and everything to do with a young woman finally finding her voice and developing her own personal boundaries? Point being she's around the age where a young person is really delving deep into their feelings and getting to know who they are and what they really want out of relationships even platonic ones.This is the age where you might decide to leave an old friend from high school behind because they've become an alcoholic, finally estrange a parent who is cruel and abusive, and around the time when many people say they had their first "real" relationship with a boyfriend or girlfriend.
Well Kate isn't about to let a lackey go just like that no matter how big the fight was.Kate got her revival too, starting back up again in 2014 to the present, and it never should have happened. Voting with your remote doesn't seem to make much of a difference these days, with such low audiences. Another interesting thing that seems to have happened is networks don't seem to be making grand cancellation announcements anymore, not usually anyway. I'm not even really sure if Kate Plus 8 got the axe again this year; TLC was never really clear.The kids were older and more outspoken and disgruntled, and as we now know during much of this time, Collin was having such serious issues he is no longer living in the family home. For those whose incomes depend on their series, not just the talent but the local production companies, such treatment is rather cold, but as we learned now more than ever recently, Hollywood is more self-interested and devoid of any morals or accountability than we ever imagined.This is a toxic relationship no matter how much you love the children and it's never going to change. When viewing Ashley's outburst on the RV trip afterward, she calls Ashley "over-dramatic." She's outrageous.Can't she just keep that comment to herself and just try to mend things with a nanny that the children love? She fits right into the industry she so wants to be a part of.
