Jenny and Bryan Masche are often referred to as the anti-Gosselins. Sure, there are similar themes in their series about parenting a six-pack, called Raising Sextuplets (WE tv, Thursday, 10 p.m. ET). Like Jon & Kate Plus 8, their show is also styled like a documentary, with couple interviews edited in. And they do trod through the same "storylines" that the Pennsylvania pair did, like visiting a children's museum or a pumpkin picking trip. But on their show, Bryan's a lovable goofball, and Jenny's always beaming her sparkly-white smile at him. Certainly, no one's getting busted by paparrazi for partying with underage coeds, etc. "The only similarity I see between us is that we both have sextuplets," Jenny said recently in an interview with babble.com.
And therein lies a problem, because other peoples' cute kids—with no other drama to spice things up—can only hold your attention for so long. Take the family's finger-painting excursion at the children's museum. It's easy to picture the scene: Cute kids splattered in bright paint. Bryan and Jenny having a gentle, playful paint fight. And then gushing declarations like this one from Jenny:
"It's time to stop dorking around and put on your big girl panties and get serious," Bryan tells his pouty wife.
"Brian, you're not using your brain," she retorts.
"No, you're not using your brain!" he counters. Good one!
It's doubtful that the anti-Gosselins will ever end up in divorce court. But imagine the entertainment value of these two duking it out on dueling magazine covers! One can only hope.
Do you find Raising Sextuplets less interesting than Jon & Kate Plus 8 because of the lack of marital drama?
