Tea Party Recap

This week on Jon and Kate Plus Eight TLC decided to pull out an episode made during the great kitchen renovation/beach getaway fiasco. Much like I don’t understand why TLC does anything it does when it comes to this family, I have no idea why they finally decided to air this two months after the other three episodes aired. If I were the nice owners of all the establishments involved, I might be a little mad at this point. But I might also be hoping that my name was never linked to this mess. Let’s watch the episode and see which is more probable. continue

This week on Jon and Kate Plus Eight TLC decided to pull out an episode made during the great kitchen renovation/beach getaway fiasco. Much like I don’t understand why TLC does anything it does when it comes to this family, I have no idea why they finally decided to air this two months after the other three episodes aired. If I were the nice owners of all the establishments involved, I might be a little mad at this point. But I might also be hoping that my name was never linked to this mess. Let’s watch the episode and see which is more probable.

As always, we open with Kate giving yet another voice over. She says that earlier this summer she wanted to get away to the beach and during the second week she wanted to do smaller trips where she could focus on the kids individually. Um... apparently that means segregating the younger kids by sex and doing things with three of them at a time. Bet you won’t find that definition of individually in Webster’s! Anyhoo, she recaps the trip to the battleship with the boys and says that for the little girls it was harder. The idea struck her that a tea house and tea party would be great, and if “they” (the TLC production crew) could find one “well great”. The enthusiasm she shows over the crew finding this tea room for her to spend quality time with the little girls is about the same as I have when I have to suck it up and run to the bank, one of my most detested errands. She says it was amazing, a gorgeous, gorgeous tea house right on the water. Again, the enthusiasm she shows is just off the charts. I raved more about the Target brand detergent I bought for the dishwasher last month. She can’t pass up a chance to bring up her friends the paparazzi yet again. We get it, you claim to hate them. Then stop calling them every time you leave the house. I’m sure it’s perfectly healthy that she keeps pointing them out to the kids. That won’t cause issues later in life at all, I’m sure.

Back in PA, Jon is home with Mady and Cara. It’s their last week of school. Sure, they already missed the whole second to last week to film at the beach, but the last week is superdeduper important. A producer asks what the girls want to do during their week with dad and the girls say shopping. In the interview chair they say they went shopping three days in a row. Normally I’d say this is excessive, but at the rate these parents spend money, at least some of it went to the girls. They’ve certainly earned it. This provides the perfect set up for Jon to give them each a small gift wrapped box. Small robin’s egg blue boxes. Tiffany’s perhaps? Jon says he got them earrings while he was in New York and got himself a pair too. He says he bought them because sometimes the twins get overlooked. Glad someone finally realized this besides us. I couldn’t make out what Mady’s were, but Cara shows hers and they looked to be some kind of short dangly earrings. Jon tells Mady they aren’t too dangly so I’m gonna guess hers are the same as Cara’s. The girls are thrilled and there’s lots of thank you daddy from both of them. Mady seems especially excited and in love with her earrings.

Kate and the girls are finally off the ferry and the girls get to pet a horse, Mikey, that’s drawing their horse drawn carriage around the town. Kate’s playing this up that they are being Cinderellas. There was a wicked mother in that story too, so it’s about right. Kate remembers she’s got three more kids she should be caring for and says the boys are back at the pool with Ashley. The carriage driver tells the girls the horse is five just like them. He leaves out that also just like the girls, the horse has worked almost from birth too. But I bet the horse has better hours. Just as the girls patience for carriage rides is running out, they finally arrive at the tea room. The girls all say bye, the carriage driver says bye, and Kate says bye Mikey (the horse) and ignores the carriage driver. Instead of always trying to make memories maybe she should work on finding some decent manners.

Kate and the girls make it into the tea room and Kate’s big selling point was it was like a tea party and they could drink out of glass cups. I’m sure the girls barely recognize china cups since they don’t have lids, straws, or Olive Garden plastered to the side. Alexis tells us all about the tea room, there was tea, food, and funny hats. Back at the table Kate is whispering to the girls asking if they want to try a fruit tea. With sugar blocks. They had the children’s tea (tutti fruitti) and lemonade. The tea is pink and this brings a chorus of ooooos from the girls. The girls have learned young and bring up the boys. Kate doesn’t miss a beat and tells them the boys wouldn’t do so well there and asks how many dishes the boys would have broke. The girls say a lot. Lovely. The girls move on to plopping a sugar cube into their tea and trying not to knock the plates off the table. Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t think I would sit a five year old with a tea cup sitting on a saucer sitting on another glass plate all sitting on a glass topped table right at their face level. The pile of plates are sliding on the glass top. Personally, I’d put the china cup on a napkin and lose the plates, but that’s just me. The girls tell us they had lots of tea and blueberry is mentioned.

Meanwhile Cara and Mady are planting seeds in plastic cups. They’ve got tomatoes and a couple of other things. Jon tells us they had a little garden going in their cups, all in a flat box. Their seeds had sprouted, they were watering them, checking on them daily, but it seems the dogs jumped on the box and knocked it over.

Kate gives us her requisite complaint about the weekly free trip/item and it has to do with all the glass. She was worried about all the china. She doesn’t let the kids use glass, even in restaurants. Now, I almost get her concerns. Like I said before it wasn’t the safest scenario. But it could have been a quick and easy fix. She says there was no breakages or messes and they did good. Alexis wants more tea just so she can plop more sugar cubes in. Leah seems to enjoy her tea. As they leave Hannah asks if they can come again and Kate says yes. Or, here’s an idea, Kate could just buy a nice children’s tea set and they could have tea parties at home. I remember having plenty of tea parties when I was a child with my plastic tea set. Kool Aid and Little Debbies in the living room work just as well as tea rooms on the ocean.

Tea time is over and Kate and the girls go to a bead store to make a bracelet. While an employee of the store sets the girls up with their beads and at the table, Kate is busy picking out her own beads. Alexis says what a fun day this is.... without the boys. Cue Kate saying the boys would have spilled all the beads. That’s right, the boys can’t drink without spilling or breaking and they can’t string beads either. Somehow I doubt this, especially since I’ve done both with little boys. Kate makes Mady and Cara bracelets. “Anywhere in the world I am, I’m still in their hearts.” Somewhere between her saying this in North Carolina and her filming the voice over, someone must have clued Kate in as to how this sounded and she voice overed that “Anywhere in the world I am, they’re always in my heart and I will never leave them.” I can’t help but notice that Mady and Cara’s bracelets are a string of all the same bead that looks like the world. Meanwhile Kate makes one for herself that’s a couple different colors and shapes of beads. It’s always best to put the least amount of effort into a present for your kids while putting tons of thought into your own new item. She goes on to say this was fun, still showing no emotion whatsoever. Oh, and she never got to do stuff like this as a kid so she likes to do it with the kids. Yeah I’m sure it is hard to constantly jet off to yet another vacation when your parents aren’t selling your childhood to film TLC produced memories.

Jon, Cara, and Mady are going to have a bon fire. He mows the grass around the area and gets everything set up. He gets his own little dig in that they should be burning tabloids and not good paper. It looks like newspapers. He says to them that now the tabloids will critique his fire building skills. Mady wasn’t much into the bon fire, it was buggy, but she still came out and sat with him and Cara. Jon and Cara share a burnt hot dog.

Finishing up their Cinderella day, Kate and the girls end the trip with ice cream. Kate tries to get Leah not to pick a bright color of ice cream because god forbid should she get it on her dress. leah picked it anyway. Kate asks for a heaping tablespoon of ice cream for herself, by all means we must make sure those girls end up with eating issues. She then took bites of all of their cups.

Cara is back at home making Jon a Father’s Day card. She traces a stencil and makes a big DAD cut out and tapes a little sign to the bottom that says Dad I love you. Mady wanders in and takes a look and says she’ll just make him eggs. Gotta love that girl!

In a stunning display of callousness, Kate recaps the little side trips by telling us the trips are nice because she can feel like a mom with three kids. I’m sure the other three and the twins will all love hearing that for the rest of time. She goes on to pigeon hole the kids into gender specific roles, the boys wouldn’t like this or the girls wouldn’t like that, and again says it gives them individual time. That is, if you count having two siblings with you individual time. And I don’t.

All in all, not a horrible episode and at least by finally showing it, it’s one less that the kids have to churn out to fulfill their current contract.

Cara got emotional while explaining the fathers day card to the camera.

Paige (Final Clothes-Out) said...

*palmface* Somehow, I don't think Kate would enjoy motherhood any more if she "only" had three kids. She'd probably enjoy it less, because three kids wouldn't have gotten her a TV show.

stopthemadness said...

"the trips are nice because she can feel like a mom with three kids."

OMG.

There's fodder for five sessions on the shrink's couch.

Despite what I imagine are huge clomping shoes she manages to fit her foot in her mouth about four times.

I guess with only Kate to do it all - sob! - that's an end to the "special Days" - where each one actually gets individual attention.

^^^ Good insight.
What would Kate do if her kids didn't earn for her?
It troubles me to think that she would mistreat them only because they aren't useful to her.

Thanks for the recap fostersmom.

You did a really good job on that recap. You actually managed to find a little humor. I can't believe they even aired it. It was a sad commentary on the state of affairs in the Kate +3 + 3 + 2 household. Kate and the girls (almost) were completely devoid of any emotion.

LP said...

One thing that got to me was the fact that the kids thought that the sugar cubes were ice cubes and wanted to put more in their tea to cool it down. Although K8 did explain that it was sugar and made it sweet and not cool you'd think that she would have asked for some ice to cool their tea - and no putting an ice cube in a china cup will not break it if you put a spoon in first.

tj said...

Ahh, the dogs knocked over the garden starts. Evidently, they had eaten Kate's organic cooking and wanted no part of it again. It adds another reason the dogs were sent away, too.

Kat_momof3 said...

thank you for the recap. I was better than last week and did not watch AT ALL... I decided the best way to avoid the urge to look at the Katewreck is to do what I like to call... "anti-Kate"

My hubby and I did a movie night with our kids (aka... dvd or on demand from cable put on the tv in our living room) and spent time with our kids.

they fell asleep on the floor and we got them in bed (and even though he's heavier than a 3yr old, I didn't complain about helping my 9 yr old, who is 4'11.5" and 107lbs)

The recap, on the other hand, I can read and not feel guilty afterward.

Cara honestly sounds like she was (as usual) a completely different (and happier) girl with her dad... and Mady even sounds that way, too.

I think those two, maybe just cause of their age, need more reassurance that he's not disappearing from their life.

My one wish at this point (after hoping for better things and not seeing them done) is that Kate lets the girls go have time during "her custody" and stay with their dad... during summer when they have no school, anyway.

in fact, why not do that with all the kids... twins for a couple weeks, boys for a couple weeks, little girls for a couple weeks.

the boys need daddy time and so do the little girls and summer is a great time.

And interesting thought that it would be a lot easier to do "little trips" with small groups of kids if the others could be WITH THEIR DAD.

InTheKnow said...

The girls said thy wore hats during tea...I swear I didn't se hats. I remember thinking that they must be thinking of the rehearsal or one of the run thru's.

Hmmm, either way, I despise this woman! Those poor kids will never get a childs tea party at home like described above and that is the saddest part of this crap.

Later GWoP'ers

She could have always done what my grandmother did for us when we were using the good china at holidays and we wanted to cool our soup or tea.... gotten crushed ice...

I'm sure that such a posh little tea room would gladly get some ice, crush it, and put it in a bowl for the girls to spoon into their tea to cool it

stopthemadness said...

Was it ORGANIC sugar though? We all know that organic equals healthy and why not follow up the tea-and-sugar-cubes with a nice outing with plenty of non organic Ice cream.

Keep wooden spoon handy for the inevitable melt downs that come when driving home.

anonymouse said...

Organic just mean no chemicals or pesticides.

Merrilee said...

Kate does not seem to realize that all of one's life experiences make memories -- not just those Kate thinks are so special.

She has said she remembers her Dad starting projects and never finishing them. That is a bad memory for her, she claims.

Doesn't she know those times she has been so mean and snotty to their Dad will be a memory just like going to the tea room, and like the time she went postal over the chewing gum incident? All memories are not sweet or pretty. Some are real and have not been manufactured by her.

franky said...

Is it just me?...
But I really think one producer or editor ( possibly both) is trying really hard to show Khate in her real light, otherwise why not edit all the juicy/put-down/bitchy comments from the show?
If they, TLC, want her to appear perfect they will edit, like graphists ( graphic artists) Photoshop perfect images of stars..this, my friends is done on purpose.
The new can-do Khate( perfect mom/woman/almost-could-be-confused-with-a-humanoid-cyborg-who-will-go-on-and-on-and-on until the Terminator stops her, only to be born again, in a liquid form..LOL..)

Hmmm..maybe the Head Sheeple at TLC kisses the ass of the guy who kisses Khates'( please note proper usage of an apostrophe..thus I have proven I am NOT a sheeple ( and..WOW, am a french speaking girl..do I get Kudos for learning a second language better than Khate has learned her first>)..ROFLMAO).
LOL,,Remember Julie Chen and all the hate..then she married head of CBS Les Moonves?
She is now "cute" and a golden girl...

Hmmmm....

Those organic jelly beans (going back to Jen Stocks shows) they bribe the kids with still gave the girls cavities.

Love Our Sons said...

Actually, it was, "the boys are back at the pool today, I believe, with Ashley." don't you just love that "I believe" part -- like she isn't sure (and couldn't care less)where her boys are. [eyeroll]

I hate how she's constantly slamming her sons. And now the "little girls" copy that.

Hateful woman.

(nice recap, thanks.)

sugarblock said...

Have to ask, did Kate not know what a sugar cube was? She called it a "sugar block" first... and then later a sugar cube. i'm wondering if a PA corrected her.

I'm so tired of the sexist attitude. Boys like ships. Girls like tea. Ummm... both can like both. No need to segregate your kids.

I always get the impression that whatever his faults, Jon really likes his kids. I never get that feeling from Kate. For her, they are props.

BRILLIANT!!!

Kudos, fostersmom. I can't bear to watch this show anymore, but I love reeading your recaps.

low life Kate said...

I am so glad Jon and Kate piss each other off so much that Kate doesn't even want to delay the divorce proceeding and maybe reconcile. Thank God!

I was afraid they would fake reconciliation and scam Americans for good TV rating$ again. That would be so gross to see and frustrating those sheeple just eat it up.

I guess Kate wants to see if ratings can improve without Jon first. If Kate+8 fails, there is no guarantee she won't fake reconciliation with Jon. She is a low life, she will do anything to be on TV.

8POE's said...

I couldn't tell anything about Cara's foot. I don't think it was injured at this time. She didn't meltdown this time but again, it was before FTT. She looked haggard at times w/interviews. A soon to be 9yr old girl should not look haggard. Puts the meltdown into perspective now.

I don't understand, if the dogs knocked over the cups w/seeds, why couldn't they do it over? Do you only get one chance to plant seeds in a cup?

One thing about Kate, she's got nerve. How the hell can she slam the boys all the time and then expect them to take care of her someday? Kate, you keep up what you're doing w/boys and what they're gonna do to you is tie you down like "Gulliver", cover you w/honey and let the ants get you.

Or take you to the dude ranch and leave you by the lion's den so yours can become part of the "carcassy" bone collection. Or perhaps just let you be "Beast in The Cellar" there at the Konpound.

I watched both airings of the epi Mon. and I still don't know what the hell she was babbling about at the end. Something about the # of kids doing activities and she lost me both times. Can I get clarification from someone here?

Jenny from the block said...

[Kate] has said she remembers her Dad starting projects and never finishing them. That is a bad memory for her, she claims.

Kate's dad made better headway with his marriage "project" than she did.

Her father is still happily married and not running around with a "bodyguard" of the opposite sex and cannodling in hotel lobby's with someone he isn't married to.

Kate thinks she has bad memories because it took her dad 3 months to get the fence up, because he was also working full time?

How in the h*ll does she think her own kids are going to feel about her when they grow up and realized how she hated being their mother and NEVER ONCE stopped complaining about being "forced" to take care of them?

Kate, your day is coming. You can't control them and silence them forever.

How are you going to feel when they get a chance to trash YOU on national TV or the Internet just like you currently trash and denigrate your own parents?

Kate is the only one of her siblings to turn out to be so utterly ugly, ungracious and unkind.

She needs to watch her back. Heretofore no one except Jodi and Kevin have spoken out. But with Jon reaching out to the Krieder's and trying to repair that relationship, who knows what kinds of truths about Kate are going to come out?

If it helps the kids and helps free them from being pimped out by their mother, let the truth come out.

So keep trashing your parents Kate, while you neglect your own children.

COmes around goes around.

LMAO! I definitely think so.

Hmmmm....
==================

Now that makes sense, Kate has her cap...er sorry, possum, set for an exec. Sorry Steve, just another rung on the ol' Kate climb to her view of super stardom. Oh dear God! This can't happen, Kate married to a TV exec, she'll never ever be off the television. That's almost as bad as her being president & preempting everything for the entire time she's in office. I can see it now, the entire country collectively turns of the TV.

I'm going to take a chance here & sound really stupid, so feel free to giggle your butts off & please educate me on this, but isn't organic sugar still sugar? Am I missing something on this? Wouldn't it still rot teeth? I mean organic brown beans still make you gassy. Just no chemicals & things like the veggies, fruit & meat, right? Or are we talking made with splenda? wouldn't that be sugarless, not organic? Wait, splenda's not organic. I'll shut up now & just start googling.

Can't See Sheep said...

Awesome recap fostermom!

Alexis says what a fun day this is.... without the boys. Cue Kate saying the boys would have spilled all the beads.
=============

This really isn't appropriate, running the boys down like this to their sisters. Why not just start a fist tight between the two groups? How lovely to have your girls grow up with such a negative view of 'boys', oh no, it's not likely to do any future damage.

This sexism is silly, juvenile & not something anyone should be teaching anyone. What's next, Kate telling the girls they can only go to college or university to be teachers, nurses or secretary's(as in what they tried to limit women to at the turn of last century). Don't get me wrong, those are all truly exemplary professions for women OR men, I just don't like the sexism she's teaching them.

This is nonsense. I remember someone posting elsewhere on this site how Aaden would have probably loved the beading. She needs to take them all to these outings and let them decide for themselves what they like and don't like for themselves. Wasn't it one of the girls that liked horses, wouldn't she have liked the dude ranch too?

If she's going to get even partial custody of the kids, shouldn't she have to prove to the judge she thinks of them as individual sentient beings, not accessories or an extension of herself? People that do this are so disturbing! Never allowing their children to be anything other than what they've decided.

The whole brood could have done with a little tea room etiquette. Normally being in public helps to teach how to behave in public. Unfortunately I'm thinking it's a lost cause with Kate.


It’s always best to put the least amount of effort into a present for your kids while putting tons of thought into your own new item.
================

Does that ever speak loudly about their lives. More work being put into her life than she's putting into theirs, that's just too sad for words.

hmmmm... fake time with mommy, real time with daddy.

HalfADozenMom said...

We took all our kids [they were 7 and under at the time, I was 8 mths pregnant] boys & girls to the same Battleship Kate took the boys.

My youngest is now 12 and I have to say we still, all these years later, laugh like crazy at the video tape of our children on the ship. They had a blast! [If you ever get a chance go, it really is a lot of fun]

I don't understand separating the tups this way - we only have six kids, but I would never segregate by sex. First it seems silly and second my kids would hate it/not allow it.

And I simply couldn't degrade one set of children to another based on their sex. Why do that? How confusing for the girls to hear that their brothers are so messy/clumsy/doofi[from their mother] and the boys always hear how great their sisters are? It is so sad.

Then again I am still agog at Kate's comment that the ice cream [color] was "ridiculously loud" and that the color wouldn't "look good" on the tup's dress. Weird.

Terra said...

The earth beads that Kate was using retail for about $3 a bead. She always does manage to pick out the most expensive items during the day's activity. For those beads, most people would have to design a bracelet around one or a few of them... not make them the whole piece.

Ms.Peach said...

Great recap. BTW, regarding the "not" wearing of funny hats. One of the tup girls sure did let it slip. Apparently at some point during the filming they wore hats at the tea party. One of the girls slipped during their couch interview and another one corrected her that there were no hats. This is more proof that they film more than you ever see and that they, IMO, rehearse. Thanks to the poster who caught that little gem.

----------------------------------

She didn't care because it wasn't her money used to pay for them. Such a greedy cow.

LP said...

You're right about the way Cara looked 8POE's - I was thinking that she looked very grundgy but haggard is a much more apt description of how she looked. Sad that a child that age looks like that.

Anonymous said...

It drives me crazy that Kate always pronounces the word "little" as "littow" or adds "ish" to the end of words. If she wants to host a talk show she should learn how to speak and not use made up words.

Zippitydodah said...

Keeping in mind that I really do not know what goes on behind closed Gosselin doors. I really do think that they should close production down and focus on the mental health of their children. The kids are going through a divorce and need both of their parents there for them not 1.7 million viewers minus me.
It is so easy to get caught up in the money game and lose focus of what is really important in life. The lives of these precious children. Good for you Jon for trying to stop production. I hope it is with good intent and concern for your children that you are doing this.

doubleD said...

You know, I have a 7 and a nearly 5 year old boy. Both only drink out of glass cups (because that's all we have) and have been since they were about three years old. Do you know why they can be trusted to handle a glass cup? Because we took the time to show them how to carefully use a glass cup and explained that they can break if you drop it or bang it on the table and whatnot. It's called parenting, Kate!

I hate the way she treats her kids. She sucks.

I don't think so. I think the girl that said they wore hats was just being silly. She even said, "big, funny hats" or something like that. The other tup laughed and said they didn't. I think they're just quirky little kids.

Ohio Buckeye said...

Foster'sMom, Don't know how you do it, but you took yet another Big Old Bowl of Boring and creatively authored a fun read! Thanks!

P.S. - Funniest thing to me is K8 doing tea parties, as if she's the queen of couth - HA!

If they wanted to truly be 'the realest reality show on TV', they'd do episodes of K8 doing roller derby or boxing - she could probably give Tanya Harding a run for her money.

Teacups and table manners: SO not K8.

Run Jon Run! said...

Thank you fostersmom for the wonderful recap. I love how Kate in her interviews tries to look sad, its so fake! The real reason she is sad is she never expected Jon to find his balls but he did. Boo Hoo!

Your 15 minutesof fame is up said...

Thanks FostersMom for that hilarious recap! I no longer watch this dreadful trainwreck of a show and look forward to your synopsis.

Kittycat said...

Great job Fostermom !! You have those kooky Gosselins figured out perfectly. I don't think Jon could have looked anymore bored if he tried...and Khate never ever has her smile reach up to her eyes....so fake, so plastic. What a pair they are.

Bubbles said...

Obviously I didn't get enough sleep last night, because the first time through I read "Jon and Cara share a burnt hot dog" as "Jon and Cara share a blunt" LOL!!! Clearly that would be more of John Phillips' parenting style!

Great recap...not sorry I missed the show but I do hope the girls had fun.

Tired of K8 said...

Any ratings on this ep?

Kate minus Jon and 8 said...

----------------------------
I believe the person before you was referring to Kate seeming to think that organic means healthy. She has said that she always allows the kids to get a treat at the organic store since it's healthy. (I don't remember her exact words.)

K8 is not great to the 8 said...

I disgusts me that Kate not only lumps her children together based on sex, but encourages the girls to make rude comments about the boys. I think she separates them because it's easier for her to say a group liked/didn't like something rather than learn each child's personality and likes. It would be just too hard for poor single mom Kate to be expected to learn anything about her children as individuals. That involves interacting with them. And you may or may not know that she has 8!! kids. Learning about each would surely cut into her spa/FedEx/Target/promoting herself as a good mother time.

Lovethe8hateJandK said...

Ugh it really bothered me all the "the boys would do this and that."
The poor things , their mother hates them. I love all the kids but the boys I love the most because I think they need it the most.
Kate hates them and Jon is constantly belittling them.
I wish I could just give those 3 a hug.

I'm sorry to ask this random question now but I haven't watched J&K in awhile...what happened to the dogs? Do they still have them?

*******************************
Jon had the dogs taken back to the breeder/trainer about 2-3 weeks ago because Kate didn't take of them when Jon was not at the house...acccording to E! online, Jon said:
"It's not fair to the dogs to not be wanted in their own home"

The dogs are gone and I for one am glad.

About the jelly beans (I know, who cares) :-) they are not organic but rather gormet. I know those as I eat them too.

Yes, how the heck can Kate have a show about organics when she seems to understand less than the average person. Just because something is organic does NOT mean it is healthy or even good for you. Anything that can be grown can be grown organically. Even poison can be organic. If I were Kate I would read up before the new show otherwise she is sure to make a fool of herself.
