I heard the guys were in LA yesterday filming a video for the first release of the new CD and that this song rocks. Anyone else heard that? I'd have expected Jon home with the family this week. I guess the work ethic i's what brings in the big $.

Richie said that he was in the studio recording aftermath of the aftermath... and that Alicia Keys played on a track.

Well I saw on another thread an interview with LA news so I guess its true. Sad really only a week out from what happened with his daughter and still putting the "job" first. Ordinary men deal with family issues all the time but they still have to go to work to put food on the table but at 5pm they go home and try to be there for their kids and their wives but JBJ is not ordinary he doesnt need the money, doest punch a clock at the end of the day and go home and has been leaving his wife to do the real hard work. sorry but I just dont get it.

I agree with your statement that ordinary men deal with family issues but still have to work. Ordinary women have to do the same thing too.

I don't agree with your statement that ordinary men go home at 5pm as not everyone has a job where they can just leave at a set time every day.

Many..both men and women...have jobs where they are not at home every night with their families. Some spend their whole working lives leaving Monday mornings and returning home Friday evening. Some are gone for months at a time. Some fly back and forth across the US when their jobs take them to the other side of the country.

The 5pm wasnt really meant to be literal but I get your point and you are correct women must make the hard choices as well and certainly your point about men and women needing to travel etc for work is well taken but I guess for me the difference is the word NEED I am sorry but Jon does not NEED to travel right now he controls his schedule unlike many. for example military they have no choice, firemen on call at the station have no choice a man or woman who travels for business because if they didnt there would be no business. I know it sounds like I am judging him and maybe I am just a little I have no doubt he loves his daughter and wants the best and none of us know the details and I know that even parents that are home all the time can face this but for me personally I would want my husband to be home for now not just to deal with the kid but to support me if that makes sense.

Did you expect anything else? After all he is the CEO/Quarterback! He was there to promote his movie songs he wants another Oscar nom for them.

But a day trip to LA to shoot a video and back home in the evening is abandoning his daughter? You have no idea what he's putting first or what's going on in the firstplace so stop saying what he needs and doesn't need. Obviously when Jon makes a committment, he follows through on that committment - always has and most likely always will. Another good thing to teach your children. IMO

For all we know Stephanie may have gone into rehab straight from the hospital last week and is not even at home. Jon hops on a plane to go to work like some people get into their car. Could be he worked and was back home that night or the next morning. Just like the actors etc. he has a commitment to promote this movie, so he is.

What if this Stephanie thing had happened during a week off in the middle of a tour? I wonder if the people that are bashing would be accepting of their concert being cancelled last minute because Jon had decided to stay home to hold Dorothea's hand. She's a strong woman, could be she told him she's fine and insisted he go fill his movie commitments. He was at home for several days following her overdose to take care of things and is probably already back home again. I'm sure the other kids are back at school and the family is trying to stay on their normal schedule. Life has to go on.

I think this sums it up!He is moving on maybe the rest of you should also.

I am in a mood to post I guess. How come pro-Jon people always justify his actions (AND they know as much as the next person - speculation) and those that don't approve of his actions are crucified. Yes, he has a job, but he doesn't NEED a job. If he's so powerful, he can make other arrangements. Whether anyone needs him or not, his place is close by. Maybe not staring at each other, but being close by, whether his wife is strong or not. Kris wasn't being mean, so stop beating people up because some of you want to believe they are a perfect family. Kids do get into things whether they are from a good/bad family. I understand that. But people have opinions. Jon himself has judged people and now he is being judged. It's how life works. He says he doesn't like publicity but he sure knows how to drum it up. And then he expects it to go away when he wants it to. I'm sorry, my opinion will never change and it doesn't make me a bad person/or parent. He has enough money to last a lifetime, enjoy it and be with your family. Obviouslly Steph is lacking something. People don't just do drugs for no reason - even if it's experimenting It's an escape. The pics of him and Dot out are probably well planned. Sorry that's what I believe and until it's proven to me otherwise, I have my own opinion. Maybe posting will cause others to think we should stop letting this guy think he is so wonderful.

One of the people that posted justification for Jon working on this thread was giving Richie crap last week for continuing to promote his work. She felt Richie's tweets and promotion for his residencey on the Late Late show were in bad taste. Because of Stephanie's drug incident.It does not look like bad taste now does it? You know who you are?

If you are talking about the pictures out now, they are not new. They are from the 26th October. Before ANYTHING happened.

Uh gee, would that be me?:p

All I said is Richie could have waited a few DAYS before tweeting and facebooking about how excited he was about being on the Late Late show instead of doing it a few HOURS after news broke about Stephanie overdosing. IMO him doing this looked disrespectful. If his Late Late show had been in a few days, yes of course Richie would have to promote it right away but this was something that could have waited because the gig isn't until December. This promotion Jon is doing was probably something that's been on his schedule for quite some time so yes, one week after the incident, he's fulfilling his commitment.

Richie was fulfilling his commitment too. The press release had gone out. Much like Jon is fulfilling his work duties, so was Richie. Plus he was going to be featured announcing the slot on the show the following night.

It's apples and oranges I guess. Bottom line here is Jon is out working a week later taking care of his commitments. Richie was taking care of his last week. And should have been able to do so without being dissed about it.

Fair enough, their PR people are probably breathing down their backs and in this business these things have to be done. My anger toward Richie's doing that last week may have been magnified in my mind because I was still quite annoyed with him for lying to the fans. Believe me I don't want to be feeling this way about Richie and I'd love to be back to the days where I can't wait to see him on stage. (hoping that happens before the tour starts)

We have to wait and see what happens. I do know he was definitely not well during the European run so that wasn't a lie; and business issues very often can't be talked about anyway, as there are contracts etc in place

I hope more than anything that more shows are added. Maybe the sacrifice we all made in losing the American shows will mean we get better ones in January (I was meant to be at the shows too so...)

Commom sense tells me that if Jon is back on his work schedule it's because everything that can be done for his daughters situation has been done, that he and Dorothea have thoroughly disussed it, and that he has her blessing to go back to work.

My husband and Iwent through a young adult childs trip to the "darkside" as our son called it, and honestly, once the set up for his beng treated etc... were made, and his treatment started there was nothing else for us to do except wait. Thiswas my son's issue to deal with, he ha to work it out with himself. We talked to him whenever he wanted to, we lethim know we loved him no matter what, but in truth, life for us went on. I went to work , so did hubby, the other two kids went to school etc.....
