Bickering reality stars Jon  and Kate Gosselin, who never seem to be too shy when it comes to having cameras around or issuing statements to the press, have suddenly come to the decision that maybe, just maybe, it’s probably not a good idea to have their recently announced divorce played out in public.

In a statement published on TLC’s web site, the stars of Jon & Kate Plus 8 write the following:

"During this very difficult time we will be working to focus solely on the needs of our family. This includes no longer commenting publicly or reacting to media stories and speculation. Our goal is to do the very best for our children and that will be done as privately as possible. We appreciate the understanding, support and well wishes from so many."

Well, since they won’t be talking to the press (for the moment), here’s a look at some recent pics of Jon and Kate each working their parenting magic in their own special way:
