When I first heard about the McGhees it was right before their appearance on the Oprah Winfrey Show. They were from my home state Ohio and they just looked like an regular normal couple, just throw in six kids.
But when I heard they were getting a reality show on Oprah’s network, I was a little concerned. The comparisons to Jon and Kate Plus 8 were instantaneous. I watched Jon and Kate Plus 8 religiously, fascinated by what it took to keep a house of multiples in order. But then as the seasons wore on and the tension between the couple got to be almost unbearable, I had to turn the channel.
