It appears that reality TV's claimed yet another marriage. Two more family-oriented reality TV stars are going the route of John and Kate: Bryan and Jenne Masche, stars of the reality TV show Raising Sextuplets, reportedly are heading for splitsville.
Last week, we told you about the Masches. As the title of the show suggests, their stardom comes from the fact that they had six kids at once.
They also don't get along very well.
Earlier this month, Bryan Masche was arrested in Camp Verde after screaming at Jenne Masche, her father, and using three of his children -- as well as some firearms -- as "leverage."
After a brief standoff with police -- which ended when cops threatened to use a Taser on him -- Masche was arrested and charged with resisting arrest. disorderly conduct, and threatening domestic violence.
Read all about it here.
Radar Online is now reporting that the spat, in which Masche threatened to "flatten" his father-in-law, was the last straw in the pair's troubled marriage and they're separating.
Jenne Masche reportedly filed a petition for separation from Bryan Masche in Yavapi County Superior Court on September 17, 2010.
As we said last week, the Masches have provided us all a valuable lesson: if family members are as screwed up as theirs seems to be, don't put them on national television.
