Katie Irene on the Bonnie Hunt Show- Oct 28th

Kate is taking time out from being EXHAUSTED to shill on Bonnie Hunt's show. Tell us how you feel about it!

I am disgusted and repelled, but no more than usual. Kate's blatant disregard for her children is obvious to everyone who watches her. How can these TV shows keep booking her like she's an expert or a celebrity? It really is obscene.

Never heard of the Bonnie Hunt show. Doesnt show in this area.

First of all I didn't even know Bonnie Hunt had a show. I wish people would stop treating them like their celebrities. The madness really needs to stop!

Dee said...

These shows, events, resorts, etc all invite the Gosselins... Why are they such bad people for agreeing to speak at these events? Why is Jon such a bad parent because they came into some good money? Would you really "turn down" money or trips? I'm more concerned about the leaches in our welfare system and problems in our foster care systems, than I am about how many gifts the Gosselins are given. Newsflash, when people are on tv, they usually are given money/gifts. Is it fair, probably not. Does it happen? all the time. I just don't see how anyone can come to such huge conclusions that Kate and Jon are "blalantly disregarding" their children based off of a few seasons of a tv show. I would love to say that I was blessed with 8 beautiful children and had the many opportunities that they have. People do not know the whole story and I just can't believe how so many people are just ranting and raving on this site over their every single blessed movement, word, outfit, facial expression, etc. Show me proof that they physically abuse their kids or have a real problem other than just personality differences and maybe I'll think this site is legit.

Usually great succesful shows don't need to make so many appearances? Maybe the ratings are not be as great as they are trying to make us believe they are if they have to go to every show out there just to promote it?
Also maybe they are realizing their 15 minutes of fame is about to be over and they are milking it for all it is worth?

OMG, she said her kids gave back their fast food that they had only had TWICE in their lives b/c they didn't like it?? LIAR!! They were gobbling their Happy Meals while on their ski trip, they also gobbled up their food at Sesame Place. If there is one thing that turns me off to a person forever is lying. She makes me sick.

babeeberry said...

Another plug for Kmart and Vtech. How nice it would have been to hear Kate say they were planning on donating Christmas presents to a charity this year, instead when asked how are you preparing for Christmas it's the usual whoa is me "Carefully (sigh and giggle) planning ahead and using layaway. Of course you are shopping at Kmart Kate. Your looking through a catalog, picking out your free stuff and acting like you paid for it. Good job burying yourself though!

nancy019 said...

Kate, I know you read this blog, can you PLEASE get yourself to a qualified beautician? I know you like your hair highlighed (cos your lazy husband likes it blonde) but it is not supposed to have 12 different colors in it. And while you are there can you ask them to give you a flattering cut?
Bonnie Hunt (whoever she is) joins the sheeple. What a joke.

Anonymous said...

She promoted Kmart layaway, and Vtech, but not the book. I wonder why??

Anonymous said...

Didn't she first say her kids have never had fast food?? I thought Bonnie H said, "Is it true your kids have never eaten fast food?" and Kate said, "Yes". Two minutes later, Kate says, "...The 2 times they've had fast food, they handed it back to me, and...".

Or, did I hear that incorrectly??

Judy said...

Dee~ I personally don't judge Jon and Kate for the way they treat each other or for all their freebies or even for how they treat their kids on the show....(I've seen much worse)

What I DO judge them for is lying about their need for money when they were sitting on an nest egg. I judge them for treating Jodi and probably countless other volunteers poorly.
I judge them for allowing their children to be their main source of income and for putting them on "display" for the sake of money.

If they weren't getting compensated for the show, or given countless freebies, would they still be putting their kids out there? Would they still be showing their children on potties or in the bath? (This was from last season).

Well, V-tech is sponsoring some kind of toy give away on Bonnie's show. The link to Kate has just been solved. Must be very crowded in that master bed with Kate "sleeping" with V-tech, Gymboree, Crocs, GAP and others. No wonder Jon sleeps in the basement!!

I would like to know Kate's reasoning on this. They go to places like Red Robin and Olive Garden but I guess that's okay since it's served on plates and not out of paper bags, right Kate? Nevermind the fact that basically the food is just the same whether it's McDonalds or Red Robin.

And we can't forget the episodes like Sesame Place, Bounce U (wear Leah said she had fries and pizza for lunch) Hershey's Chocolate World or the Utah trip where they were seen eating fast food.

Kate's really unbelieveable and what's even more unbelieveable is the people out there that actually believe that she's never given them take-out or fast food and she prepares all their food.

I posted a comment on bonniehunt.com (criticizing Bonnie for saying that she "admires" Kate) and my comment has not shown up yet.

(Who would admire a woman that leave 8 sick kids behind so she can take her husband to get hairplugs? Or banish a sick kid to the cold laundryroom floor? Or who lets her kids decorate birthday cupcakes but then won't them eat the cupcakes. Or peruses a bed catalog while her little boy is so constipated he's crying?)

I think that bonniehunt.com deletes the negative comments.

I don't think anyone is really watching the Bonnie Hunt Show, so that might be the silver lining in this cloud.

If you're ever seen Jerry Maguire, you've seen Bonnie Hunt as Renee's sister.

I have a question. Does anyone know what happened between kate and beth? In regards to the book, why is beth not on any shows etc with kate. Beth helped with the book and her name is hugely written on the cover, so Kate where is she? And dont give the usual lame excuse "she doesnt want to be in the spotlight" because if that were true she never would have been on your show or have anything to do with that stupid book. Does anybody know the real deal?

Oh, now, don't forget the recently aired Phillies game where the kids went TO TOWN on chicken fingers, fries (with cheese) , hamburgers, etc.

I have nothing against fast food- I actually think it's a right of passage to have a Happy Meal once in a while ( and actually for me, a Quarter Pounder, no cheese, is quite tasty too)and of course, we all want our families to eat healthful meals on a regular basis. I just wish Kate would get off her d*mn soapbox and stop making these blanket statements (like the kids not watching tv).

Anonymous said...

Oh boy...Bonnie Hunt Show? Wow, go Kate...um, who's watching the kids? Although, J&K HAVE come a looong way from begging for a free nurse through Medicaid, IMO. Sometimes I think that Kate did ALL of this to "get even" with all those people in the system who denied her benefits back then. Point made already-move on!

Rosey in Washington said...

I live in Washington and the Bonnie Hunt show is VERY new here, its only been on for like 2 or 3 months MAX. Maybe its just not a national show yet??

Anyway, I havent seen the show ever, and I can't watch it today when Kate is on because I have a Dr.s Appointment, but I'm sure there will be a clip of it on YouTube.

I don't understand why all these shows have Kate as a guest...she has NO special talents (expect mooching off her kids and their hard work), ALL the woman did was have children-and she didn't even do that naturally!! I just don't understand what makes this woman special!

====================

Let me explain it:

They are not promoting the show or the book, they are promoting their sponsors' products.

See, they don't get all those goodies for free, they have to earn them.

BTW..checked our local listing for the Bonnie Hunt show and it comes on 2AM here..no one is watching.

Kelly S...the info about Beth is on this blog. I think it's all about money, same reason Aunt Jodi is out as well. These people are unreal. And if anybody thinks Kate is shopping at Kmart and putting things on layaway...oh my gosh that's so ridiculous! The kids are dressed in Gap and Gymboree from head to toe, the parents wear Gap and Banana Republic, they get free EVERYTHING, it's just crazy! All of that and not having a real job. Their "family job" is sad. Kids shouldn't work!!!!!! Kids are supposed to be taken care of by their parents, not the other way around, KON!

No fast food? Let's not forget the 4th of July picnic where Kate orders a sloppy joe for herself and was it hot dogs for the kids?

FYI: The 700 Club is doing a story on KON this week. I'm sorry I missed the actual day during the announcement because I was only paying half attention but I think they said Thursday?

Is there a place online that I can watch it?

Carol said...

Or when we saw Jon walk up in Utah with Happy meals after a morning of skiing. I don't let my kids have fast food very often, I can't stand it but I'm not going to lie and say they've never had it.

Jim S said...

Bonnie Hunt is a really talented comic character actress, but why they think she'd be a draw in daytime syndication is a little beyond me.

Anonymous said...

It's interesting to read how people define fast food. I think of fast food as being McDonalds or Wendys, Burger King, Taco Bell...those big chain places that are the same no matter what state (or country) you are in. I'd rank McDonalds as probably the least nutritious (Do you have any idea how they make their chicken nuggets? And yet, sometimes I CRAVE them. I love that place - just had a big mac combo there about a half hour ago, but I am going to make up for it with a healthy dinner) but eating there every once in a while is ok.

When the kids get their fries and hot dogs and chicken fingers or pizza, yes it's not the healthiest, but I don't consider that fast food at all (unless it's actually from a fast food place). I think of that sort of food as ball park food or diner food, good old fashion American food that is yummy (but not necessarily good for you) and eating that sort of food moderately (as Kate and the gang do when they go to these amusement parks) is fine, as long as it's balanced by more nutritious foods that you will eat most of the time.

I think Kate feels the same way.

Ilovemykids said...

Bonnie Hunt was the mom in the remake of "Cheaper by the Dozen" a few years ago. Maybe she thinks Kate's life is like the movie.

But, of course, we know it's not.

Hope said...

I agree that Kate should get off of her soap box. We get it...you're the most amazing mother in the world. You've never given your kids fast food and the rest of us are horrible people because we have.

I think a little McDonald's should be the LEAST of Kate's worries. Who would honestly condemn fast food and then exploit their kids to no end? Seems extremely unbalanced to me. At least they'll be fast food free when they're lying on a therapist's couch for the next 30 years. I think this is going down a really, really bad path.

Oh yeah, don't forget Dutch Wonderland & Disney's Goofy Kitchen where we saw them eating restaurant food which is just about as healthy as "fast food."

Plus. personally, some of the food I've seen Kate give them ranks right up there with the aforementioned eating establishments. Peanut Butter and Fluff sandwiches, nachos & frozen pizzas. Come on Kate, it's all the same JUNK!

tripletsmom said...

I have NEVER met a kid that didn't like a Happy Meal. Pleaaassseee, give me a break. The problem with Kate is that she can't remember all the lies that she tells. The truth ALWAYS remains the same. Those kids seem to inhale fast food when they get it. We have all seen it on their show. I guess Kate won't have McDonalds as a sponsor. Maybe if McDonalds had ORGANIC food, Kate would allow it.

sabrinasmom said...

In Utah, Jon was clearly shown carrying Happy Meals to the kids during the ski session.

In one of the earlier episodes or specials, Jon and Kate are shown folding laundry in their bedroom and their is a Mc Donald's soft drink cup in the background (on a night stand, I believe).

Paula said...

This woman really has issues with food.

She calls bagels "treats" but freely gives them cinnamon and sugar on top of their toast, french toast and pancakes for breakfast and ice cream for dinner.

She should really write a book on all her contradictions. Maybe then she can browse through it before coming on national TV and looking so ridiculous regarding what she feeds her kids.

And does anyone really believe for a second that those kids gave her back their fast food when we clearly saw 4 of the kids happily eating JUNK at the ballgame?

Fried chicken fingers, french fries, hot dogs, ice cream, cracker jacks. Yep! Sounds like fast food to me!

Aya said...

I checked 100 Club site and they will be on Thursday. It said they will be there LIVE with their large family. Another school day...

Anonymous said...

I don't get the fast food comment either. As soon as that statement came from her mouth I had to disagree with her and thought to myself what does she consider Red Robin and all the amusement park food she has eaten? What did she consider Disney food?

I'm sorry but Olive Garden and Red Robin and the places at amusments parks and the Phillies games are fast food places. Yes, Olive Garden and Red Robin serve their food on plates and you are sitting down to eat it but they are serving fattening foods just as McD's, Burger King, Taco Bell, amusement parks and other places are. They are all frozen foods or prepackaged foods or preplated meals that are cooked in way to much grease and oil.

Anonymous said...

Had TLC on today while cleaning. Saw that it was J&K and went to change the channel. I did however have to review the one scene which is so demeaning to Jon. I realize that he is pretty lazy, can't hold a job and doesn't have much gumption, but the way Kate spoke to him was horrible and demeaning. It was when they were doing their couch interviews about favorite and least favorite scenes. Jon mentioned the trip to Disneyworld where Kate went "crazy" about the kiddos getting ice cream on themselves. She said "no one helps me".....etc., etc., etc.....Jon fired back with "no one helps you Kate"? After this brief banter, there was some negativity (is this a Kate word?) between them, at which point Jon said he was not going to share anymore about scenes he found embarrassing since he gets in trouble each time he metions one and he hopes the discussion about Disneyworld was over. At that moment Kate turned towards him and said "it's not and that's not the proper way to communicate......Good Try Though". It so sounded like she was talking to a child. Boy, as the mother of grown children, I can only imagine how she must have talked to her parents and sibs growing up. You know the type...one of those spoiled kids who always has to have the last word and is demeaning to those around her. I know nothing of her extended family, but I'm sure they've been hurt many, many times by this selfish woman.

When Bonnie said that her mom and dad had seven kids, Kate gave such a sarcastic 'wow'. I thought her eyes would roll completely back her head.

Anonymous said...

Sigh.If Kate admitted the kids eat fast food, she wouldn't be able to sell her cookbooks and organic ideals to her slobbering fans and go on TV making meatloaf. Her life is a lie based on the image she creates to make money. She's the amazing mom of eight, don't you want to buy what she's selling? Don't YOU want to be just like Kate Gosselin?? I do. She invented peanut butter sandwiches, then she put fluff on them! Genius. If my mom hadn't dropped me on my head, I would have thought of that first.

Micky D's, B King and other's probably turned down her freebie requests, but she does lie an awful lot, and about stupid things. If she lies about the little things, It's only a short step to lying about the bigger things she does.
And an example of physical abuse is letting your child be in pain, like on the bed buying episode.

I'm really trying to find something positive about $Kate$ appearing on TBH show. Her jacket was very trendy.

Sasha222 said...

Oh guaranteed if McDonalds approached Kon with a huge endorsement deal (and McD's has plenty of money to do that) then Kate would for sure come up with some brilliant excuse as to why it's ok to give her children fast food sometimes. That is how she works. She would sell her own dignity for the right price.....well I guess she's already done that..

LondonFog said...

What a blah blah show. I thought that Bonnie had more class in her choice of talk show celebs.Did I just say celebs(kate is not in that category.

____________________

But it's ORGANIC fluff. I remember that episode well--she made a big deal about how they rarely eat peanut butter and fluff sandwiches, and ONLY because she found organic marshmallow fluff.

Organic or not, it's still pure sugar, so just give it up, Kate. Accept that your kids eat a standard American diet, and quit with the organic snobbery.

That was the same episode where Kon had a mutual meltdown over where to eat--picnic table or ground? Kate first thought, ground. No, picnic table. No, ground because the twins didn't want to be with the little kids (maybe it was Kate they didn't want to be around).

In an interview many, many years ago, the late great Julia Child said that people are always so surprised when they come to her home and open her pantry, because she has Oreos, chips, and other junk food like any other normal person.

This whole "my-kids-don't-eat-fast-food" is just another attempt at trying to show everyone how upper class she is - the same reason why she can't go five minutes without saying organic. It's all for show , and she's a wannabe.

I have a friend who has some issues with food. Like Kate, she loves to proclaim that her kids don't like/eat fast food, yet she will go hither, tither and yon to get them some of those fabulous Thrasher's fries. I call her on it every time.

quinn said...

I took my daughter to McDonalds yesterday for a little treat. She ate three bites of her cheeseburger, all of her apple dippers, and some chocolate milk. So does that make me a bad mom? I don't think so! You know what I don't do? Have camera crews follow around my child, live off of her cuteness, and let every weirdo in the world know about our personal lives.

"I use layaway at Kmart" Oh gosh it's so laughable Kate.

quinn said...

I do have to admit that Kate looks good though, I mean except the funky hair. But everybody looks good once you're making lots of money right? I wonder how I could have my child work so I can start having a better wardrobe and plastic surgery...just kiddin. ;)

Nat said...

Did Kate actually say that her kids have only eaten fast food twice and both times they gave it back... AAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!

NICE TRY KATIE!!!!

During the Phillies episode the kids were shoveling it in like it was going out of style... like ANY child would be.

And during that same episode when they were doing the couch interview and Jon was talking about what all of the kids had and he said Cara had a hot dog and Kate CLEARLY says "Cara LIVES on hot dogs"

If hot dogs aren't junk food then I don't know what is!

You know... Kates always blabbing about she only serves her kids HEALTHY, ORGANIC food. But most of the time the food I see her giving then is complete CRAP! I have a 4 YO and it would be a chilly day in hell when I gave him 4 grapes and a handful of crackers and called it lunch. Or a handful of corn chips and a glob or salsa... or half of a peanut butter and fluff sandwich...

Kate you might want to STOP DROP and ROLL because I'm pretty sure your pants are on fire.

Just finished watching Kate on the BH show, what a load of crap!! She looks like a stuck up B now!!! This whole Famous thing has really gone to her head!!! Christmas shopping, CAREFULLY?! Yeah right she won't spend a freaking penny!!! Everything will fall into her lap "FREE"!!!
Makes me sick!!

kelly s said...

What a cold fish that kate is. Not only does she lack any personality when she is not in charge (ie wedding dress episode)but who does she think she is. She just acts like she is the Queen Bee. When she walks in she hardly looks at the audience and gives a slight wave.

The fast food is a total lie. One sentence she says they dont it but when bonnie says that as kids she used to hoard the "garbage" Kate replies they do too. What is it kate? Giving your kids fast food does not make you a bad parent- but to tell "untruths" (as they say) does.

Also, it looked like she was talking weird. I wonder if she had a bridge put in the front to make her teeth look straighter.

I remember VERY specifically Kate proudly bragging on what good eaters she has....you know the 4th of July epsiode "when it comes to food my kids will sit still on the picnic blanket", blah blah blah.. I have heard her brag on her kids' eating habits on more than one episode.

Suddenly discriminating eaters??? Hmmmmmm......

Enough of the organic rhetoric Kate, we get it. She acts as if it's a character flaw if her kids like fast food. I bet if McDonald's was a sponsor we'd see the golden arches all the time.

When will it end KON?

Kelly, you devil you! I wasn't going to say anything about QFI's teeth, but I noticed she seemed to have a slight overbite when she was trying on dresses on Kleinfelds. This was new and quite apparent—at least to me. (And, yes, I do need to get a life.) I didn't notice it when I first saw the Kleinfelds episode but now will be looking for it.

I don't think QFI is having orthodontia. She finished that in the year before the tups were born—probably Poppy worked a deal with the orthodontist for her.

I dunno. Maybe an adult flipper? If so, can the baby beauty pageants for the tup girls be far beyind?

Anonymous said...

The taste and texture of fast food is usually so different from home cooked "healthy" meals that it wouldn't surprise me if the kids didn't like eating too much of that over processed food. Sometimes I get a burger and a mcnuggets kids' meal at McDonalds (it really doesn't look like a lot of food, the portions are pretty small) but by the time I get to my second nugget (half the sandwich and most of the fries untouched) I'm full. There are so many calories condensed into such a tiny amount of food that I can believe the kids would take a bite or two and be done. They're so little. I'm grown and get full pretty fast on fast food.

I just don't see how anyone can come to such huge conclusions that Kate and Jon are "blalantly disregarding" their children based off of a few seasons of a tv show. I would love to say that I was blessed with 8 beautiful children and had the many opportunities that they have. People do not know the whole story and I just can't believe how so many people are just ranting and raving on this site over their every single blessed movement, word, outfit, facial expression, etc. Show me proof that they physically abuse their kids or have a real problem other than just personality differences and maybe I'll think this site is legit. Really? Gee, neither parents work and the children have been under the hot studio lights installed in their home since they were 14 months for the tups. The children are the reasons for the series and the series is why neither Jon or kate have to work and pay for any thing. So, because you can't take 1+1 to get to two, you feel this blog isn't legit. Sorry that just means you need to get some critical thinking skills because children working and supporting their parents is WRONG. Unless you too hope to take some fertility drugs and stay on bed rest for 6 months to produce a litter and get a series for yourself then you would just be as immoral as Jon and Kate.
I don't understand people thinking hey if I act indignant then I can convince other people nothing bad is going on with the Gosselins. Few people I hope are that dumb I think the reason that people don't get 1+1 for the most part is because it's Monday they aren't really paying attention to the issues around the show et al . But if there are people that understand that innocent minor children have sacrifice their childhood, dignity and privacy all for their parents and production companies greed, then I don't see how they can't act on it.

" Show me proof that they physically abuse their kids or have a real problem other than just personality differences and maybe I'll think this site is legit."

So signs of physical abuse is the only proof required? IMO, blatant exploitation of the Gosselin children at the hands of their own parents speaks for itself! The absence of any signs of physical abuse does not minimize the fact that the Gosselin children, were, are and continue to be exploited for the purpose of monetary and personal gain. I suppose for some, the absence of of physical abuse serves enough proof that the children are not being exploited.

Oh My GAWD...THAT HAIR!!!!!!!

She could be so pretty if it weren't for that disaster on her head. That is the ugliest hairdo I've ever seen in my life....right up there with Amy Winehouse. And yes, I am able to comment on her hair because she has chosen to be a public personality and put herself out there to be judged.

Oh, and don't forget about the McDonalds cups that were on the nightstand in Maddy and Cara's room in one episode.

I will be ending my partnership with 700 Club, as well, because I am sure they will praise this Christian family and their values....and neglect the entire exploitation / lying /greed/ hitting and slapping side of it.

I understand how the publishing company says there is not a book tour. She likely would not have been on otherwise. They were not making so many appearances before the book.

michelle said...

I live in NC and we do not have this show in our area.

Kate Gosselin (& family) is becoming a product. This seems to be what she wants to do. Perhaps the booking on this show is for promoting the book?? Too bad Beth Carson is not also on this book tour considering she is the co-arthor. I really wonder what she is thinking and feeling??

I wonder if they have an agent now that is booking all of these appearances.

I just hope the tups and twins will not be on this show with her.

michelle said...

Dee,

Jon and Kate are exploiting their children with this show.

And they would not have all this money, trips, events,& free offerings if it were not for the tups. The tups have become the paychecks.

That is a problem. Children should NOT have to support the family.

When asked about Beth Carson being a co-author, Kate very curtly replied yes, and then went on making her miraculous $40 organic meatloaf for people on a budget.

I just went over to the Bonnie Hunt blog - poor Bonnie isn't going to know what hit her. There are a few I-hate-the-gwoppers entries, but most are negative and crystal clear on the truths behind KON.

Didn't she first say her kids have never had fast food?? I thought Bonnie H said, "Is it true your kids have never eaten fast food?" and Kate said, "Yes". Two minutes later, Kate says, "...The 2 times they've had fast food, they handed it back to me, and...".

Or, did I hear that incorrectly??

While I'm not particularly interested in Kate's hairdo or clothing, I don't have any problem with people commenting. This is a woman who manages to make a fool of herself every week on national TV. She repeatedly embarrasses her husband and shows indifference and downright hostility to her kids. I don't understand why people would think that Kate should be immune to taking criticism when she seems so eager to offer it. There is that old saying about staying out of the kitchen if you can't take the heat. This is the downside of even puny celebrity.

michelle said...

Dee,

Kate's appearance has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that these tups are being exploited.

I am personally not comfortable with reading posts that make fun of Kate's appearance. I don't care what her hair looks like and I believe that she is pretty, my own opinion.

Her children are all adorable and precious, I just don't think that they need to be supporting the family.

Savannah said...

Oops, Sorry 'bout that...I was just experimenting :\

I just watched the clip from youtube and...ok..now this is getting totally creepy. How long can we go on and on talking about Kate Gosselin having these 8 children? The look on Kate's face and the scary hair? I mean, c'mon-she's not the Virgin Mary yet she's glorified as if she's a saint.

I can't believe it. I admire women such as Beth and Jodi. They were always putting their own families aside to come and give of themselves. I've read that there were so many other women too that did the same for this Kate Gosselin monster. Why should anybody reward HER for the way she treated such caring and loving paople who stepped out to help? And even worse, she denies her children the pleasure of knowing and forming bonds with such extraordinary people? That's really sad.

I dont know where to put this.. sorry.
In the state of wisconsin if you apply for medicaid, you sign a financial waiver, saying that if you come into a financial windfall, it is your job to pay back what the state paid for you. You dont even have to offer, they will take it. The Gosselins did receive state aid, that is well known. Why is the state not going after them for the costs, if not in full, but a portion? I know 2 people that this happend to. One was in a car accident, she won a law suit and most of her settlement went to the state. Another did very well in real-estate and the birth of their preimies was being paid back. Any idea's why the Gosselins tax returns arnt being monitored?

Well, some might think Kate is pretty on the outside but I wouldn't say the same about her inside.

Anonymous said...

I would like to know Kate's reasoning on this. They go to places like Red Robin and Olive Garden but I guess that's okay since it's served on plates and not out of paper bags, right Kate? Nevermind the fact that basically the food is just the same whether it's McDonalds or Red Robin.

And we can't forget the episodes like Sesame Place, Bounce U (wear Leah said she had fries and pizza for lunch)"

There was once this annoying person on a parenting message board I used to frequent. She would constantly say how horrible McDonalds is and judge people who ate there or fed their kids anything from there..YET, she said she never cooked and they ate out every single day. Well, pretty much all she got according to her was fried chicken fingers. Um, when informed that fried chicken fingers from a restaurant is no better than from any other fast food place, she denied it like crazy, said the oil is better, etc. Whatver. She also said her toddler ate that pretty much every day. Also, her toddler 'did not like vegetables'. Wonder why, growing up with that diet. The little girl pretty much had V-Fusion to drink all the time and then ate carbs and fried foods and little else. So healthy..

Anonymous said...

My first post didnt make it thru so i am gonna make it short and simple... Red Robin paid money, McDonalds did not. Simple. They dont plug anything they dont get paid to. If mcdonalds wrote them a check Kate would be raving about how wonderful the apple slices and all white meat chicken nuggets are all the while noshing on a McSalad. Thats all it is, "their life is the show and the show is their life"-- everything has a price tag, weather it is french fries or happiness, IMO.

Michelle, I really hope that no one is trying to bash you here, it really seems that although you dont agree with alot of the other peoples opinions of Kates appearance (including myself) I thought that you are being respectful about it...and that is why I want to try to explain to my opinions in a nice way also.

Other than Kates haircut (but to each her own I guess) I agree with you that Kate does look pretty good these days. But thats my problem...she looks good these days because of all this money that is being made off her her children and their "stay at home job", that she can now afford to look like a celebrity with her designer clothes, professionally whitenned teeth, tummy tuck, etc...which by the way were all FREE TO HER!

Look back at their first 2 specials when they really were kind of like an "average family" trying to support eight kids. I respected her then, I thought she actually was grateful for all the donations that were given to her...but now look at her. The only reason she looks as good as she does is because, in my opinion along with TONS of other people on this blog, she is living like a celebrity (and getting to look and dress like one apparently) ONLY because she pimps and exploits her children on a weekly tv show.

She would have NOTHING if it werent for her kids, she wouldnt be able to look as good as she has recently because she wouldnt be getting a FREE designer wardrobe, she wouldnt have received a FREE tummy tuck, FREE teeth whitening, etc. Not to mention the 4 to 7 extravagent trips she gets to go on for FREE because she CHOOSES to put her children all over tv everyweek in order to "earn" a paycheck and all the freebies.

If she was EARNING everything HERSELF, and not relying on her children to work on the show up to 12 hours a day/4 times a week then I would have no problem with how she looks.

But my bottom line point is, the reason that alot of people critize Kate for all of her "new and improved" look and style is because she NEVER did ANYTHING to earn it. All she did was have 8 kids, and turned their lives into a living circus.

Since when does McD's chicken nuggets get considered fast food and not Olive Garden's? To the anonymous poster who pretty much claimed this- ridiculous! Chicken nuggets are basically the same wherever you get them. Sure, Olive Garden's may be considered "strips" instead of "nuggets", but it is still breaded chicken deep fried. I don't have a problem giving my daughter chicken nuggets occasionally. She loves them and eats them well. In fact, we were at Olive Garden yesterday and she had some. The only difference about going there and getting them as opposed to McD's was that instead of fries she got broccolli.

It doesn't bother me if people don't like how Kate appears and talk about it on here. That is what you get for putting yourself on national television every week. And I don't think it keeps us from getting to the point of eploiting the kids just because people talk about her mess of a hairdo.

I like Bonnie Hunt, but I've never seen her show. I wish a show that stirs up controversy would have her on. I'd watch that for sure.

And an example of physical abuse is letting your child be in pain, like on the bed buying episode.
_________________

I agree that Collin should not have been brought along during the bed shopping when he was constipated, but he would have been in pain at home, too. I don't consider it "letting" a child be in pain, because by that logic if my kid fell off his bike and scraped his knee I'd be physically abusing him because I am incapable of removing that pain. You usually can't control a kid's pain; you just have to comfort him or her as best you can (which I agree she did not do, but I don't consider it physical abuse... maybe neglect).

If you can honestly say as a mother that your child has never felt any kind of pain whatsoever, you're either the luckiest parent alive or your child is made of titanium.

What I mean by legit, is that if we're claiming to be advocates for the children, shouldn't we leave off our disgust for things such as Kate's hair, teeth, skin and other things unrelated to the children's privacy and how does trashing them help them or ourselves? I'm just concerned that our advocacy has turned into a witchhunt or just a place to be mean. I understand that we all have free speech, etc, but I was just concerned, that's all and just had a few questions.

And thanks again, Michelle for your kind response to my questions :)

Over at the bonnie hunt website, some poster made a comment about how "Jon does have a job and just recently had his hours changed to be at home more...and Kate just recently quit her job to stay home full-time with the kids".

OMG, some people's ignorance astounds me. Ever heard of re-runs? Look at the ages of the tups in those sequences....they are still two, in reality they are now 4 1/2.

Sheesh, I can't believe how easily conned some people are. I guess Bonnie Hunt is easily conned also.

I think they use the word "fast food" when they should instead say...they don't eat "mc donald's, burger king, wendy's" etc.

I think her main point is that FAST FOOD is not something that is common in her family for dinner. Unlike many americans.

Let's face it, Mc Donalds is garbage. I think most here are a little sensitive about having it pointed out that by feeding fast food you are feeding your kids junk.

Take a deep breath,you are not a bad parent...but you could do better for your children by feeding better food.

I did not watch the Bonnie Hunt show that featured Kate Gosselin , but did watch the UTube video of her appearance. My question is; What was the purpose of Kate's appearance on the show other than the obvious promoting of KMart? OK, she is mother of two sets of multiples, that is old news. The tups are now 4+ years old and the twins are 8 and their reality show is now in its 3rd season. Kate did nothing more than respond with one or two sentence ambiguous answers to Bonnie's questions. I guess I just dont see the inspirational value that others succumb to when it comes to Kate Gosselin and her family as a whole. Is Kate Gosselin really the standard for which women of our society are now referencing as an inspirational role model? Surely you jest.

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

I respectfully disagree. I do not think most people are overly sensitive to the "fast food" comment, I for one, am just sick of Kate's BS soapbox statements that she makes and then breaks :

* my kids don't eat fast food - yes they do. not often, but we've seen it, and they seem to love it, which is ok.

* my kids don't watch tv - yes they do. we've seen it, you've talked about, and they seem to love it, which is ok.

* we only eat organic - Juicy Juice, which your kids drink by the gallon, is not organic. organic fluff is no better than regular fluff, it's still marshmallow. and if your kids eat fluff occasionally, it's ok.

etc, etc, etc. Did you see the episode where they talk about the Gosselin Family Mission Statement ? Again, lots of talk, but no walk.

You know another comment that really irked me (there are so many, after all). She was explaining to Bonnie how hard it is to not eat the junk and she always tries to plan, etc. The part that she almost said, and then caught herself, is how it's hard to pack good stuff WHEN THEY ARE TRAVELING ALL THE TIME. That's the little tidbit that she left out, but that's why it's so HARD for Katie Irene's family to stay on their organic diet.

I personally TRY to give my kids healthy food, but if we stop by McD's or any other fast food joint once in a while, who cares? As a matter of fact, we visited Taco Bell yesterday because everybody got a free taco. The tacos were delish =)

Amen to that. The Gosselins are not private citizens, they are television personalities who are actively selling their personae. They have not had the spotlight thrust upon them. They are actively chasing it.

So I watched the video clip of Kate on the BH show.

DEAR LORD 'N BUTTER. If I had gotten that haircut I would stay inside until it grew out. It looks like a mutant porcupine/shi tzu puppy is on her head. It doesn't look stylish, or easy to care for, it just looks...dumb.

And yes, I can comment on her hair because she chooses to put herself out there in public.

You have to remember that its not like Kate is 'looking this good' while running after her 8 children, slaving over a hot oven, or after a day spent scrubbing the bathtub and cleaning toilets and then hours on laundry stain removal. She is 'looking this good' because she has allocated individuals doing all the above mentioned, as well as, do her makeup, hair, and tell her what to wear. Kate is looking far from exhausted these days, more like a kept woman that has no children.

PS. No I am not suggesting that SAHM or mothers in general have to not 'look so good' to be worthy of their title or appreciation. With respect to Kate, Im just sayin'

Remember the McD cup on the twins' nightstand. Also, yea, the ski trip he brought them the happy meals. And sorry to break it to you, Katie, but that garbage you fed them at Sesame Place, Crayola Factory etc is no different than fast food really. Chicken tenders, fries, whether it's from Sea World or Burger King- they are frozen, loaded with preservatives, salt, fat, you name it.

And Lord KNOWS you go on so many of these trips that it's a pretty good percentage of what the kids are probably eating.

I doubt Craft Services is all fresh, healthy, wholesome, organic food.

Oh, and ice cream for dinner.

Might I suggest to Missy Kate, if you are going to be doing more of these talk show rounds since you are quite the celebrity these days ( no thanks to the tups ), you might want to consider taking speaking classes like Amy Roloff took the time to take, because she has the intelligence to realize she wasn't that great at it and wanted to improve in that area.

Um....okay?

The only good thing about Kate appearing on the Bonnie Hunt show is that she'll be too well-known to ever appear on [and ruin] What Not To Wear. Even if she did make an appearance, I don't know if she could handle being made fun of by the hosts.

Does anyone think she had a boob job? Either that or she has a better bra. On the episode where the kids got physicals for school, she was wearing an almost strapless top. If she was as bad up top as she claimed in the tummy tuck episode, she would not have been able to wear that with dignity.

It's not Kate herself, it's that everyone is projecting their own feelings and perceptions onto Kate. Kate has 8 beautiful kids, she's thriving, we get to watch it. Viewers want Kate to be a normal, average, good mom so they project that image onto her.

This is why they can say absolutely nothing and people are still happy with her & Jon. It's a projection. It has to be.

I'm astonished that people don't see through the sham this family is perpetrating. Arrogance abounds.

Using K-Mart's layaway for Christmas? Seriously doubt it. Aren't they the ones who are building a huge house in NC? Most ppl. shopping at K-Mart surely can't do that.

Kate conveniently left out one important fact in her answer to Bonnie's question about how they had so many children: she got pregnant with help from modern science. Acc. to the show, it wasn't a natural occurrence, which WOULD indeed be a rarity. Big difference. Instead, she answered they came from God. Hmmm . . . special blessings for a special person, right?

As for posts by Dee, you're on the wrong site; you need to go to their fan club if there is one.

OMG! This comment made me laugh out loud. "Shi tzu puppy on her head!" Thank you for the laugh.

I don't want it canceled yet, I'd miss this blog. My bad.

Thank you Maggie!!! I agree 100%

I have been meaning to express my comments regarding the same.

After watching the UTube clip it became very apparant to me that all the words that are used to describe and define Kate ie, super mom, uber organized, expert are not put out there by Kate but the conclusions that the media and others have imposed upon her. The media have come to their own self defining conclusions of what they want and think Kate should be. During the interview with Bonnie Hunt and various other appearances, Kate has been asked numerous times how she does it, what is her secret, how she manages 6 children all the same age, etc. in reponse, Kate has offered nothing more than a one or two sentence response such as, with the help of God, one day at a time, its very exhausting. Kate neither denies, defends, or offers an elaboration to the titles that have been imposed upon her, she merely basks in the admiration of the conclusions that others have projected upon her. People have preconceived ideas of what it must be like to be a mother of two sets of multiples; it must be hard financially, it has to be exhausting, you have to be organized and have a routine and this is exactly the impression that Kate is living up to, real or not its the preconceived ideas are that are providing the proof not the reality (Kate).

Exactly! This isn't reality so shouldn't be called a reality show. We have seen some of the real Kate from time to time with all her bitching and commanding others around but for the most part, the super mom stuff is made up, it sells.

I think a lot of these comments about Bonnie are a bit out of line. She doesn't book guests, and she can't exactly treat her guests like shit on air.

I happen to think she's great, you should catch her appearances on Letterman. She'd be totally suited for a late night spot.

My comment to her was in regards to not watching her show because the people who do book her guests do not bother to do any research. I realize she does not book them. However, regarding treating them badly, no, she can't do that but she could also cease fawning all over her! Nothing wrong with doing a basic interview and asking some real questions instead of gushing over and over how organized she is and how she is her hero. That's just ridiculous and childish, not to mention ignorant of the situation of KON.

wendimail said...

Bonnie Hunt is extremely kind and generous with all her guests. That is part of her charm. Her show is wonderful.

She and her staff probably were ignorant of "Kon". But I can guarantee they aren't now as it has been all over her website.

HA. Some unsuspecting sheeple left a comment on the Bonnie Hunt Show's site saying that she loves Kate Gosselin, what a great mom, but she thought it was a little tacky that when talking about her Christmas preparations and "discovering layaway at K-Mart," without missing a beat Kate awarded everyone in the audience $50 K-Mart gift cards...the viewer said it sounded more like a commercial than a mom giving helpful advice. Oh you poor thing...if you only knew.

machinegunsmom said...

Okay, there's a lot of snarky comments about "organic" and people act like kids not eating fast food is newsworthy...personally, I agree that organic is better, my son has eaten about 95% organic since they day he was born and has never been sick a day in his life, there's no proof that there isn't a correlation, and I don't think it's a bad thing not to feed your kid McDonald's--watch Supersize Me and then talk to me about McDonald's and Red Robin being the same. But that's not the issue with Kate.

She does need to get off her high horse, because she gives them absolute crap when they go to their free events, you would think with so many people kissing her butt she could keep the meals consistent when they go to parks, ski trips, etc...but JUST feeding them organic isn't enough. It's about balance, which she doesn't provide. She gives them crackers and grapes every day for lunch, and when they did the first hour-long special, it shows them at Sam's Club with their cart LOADED down with industrial-sized boxes of Goldfish, animal crackers, and Coke. I guess they didn't have Kraft services back then...don't even get me started about how she pumps them full of fruit juice all day long. I think if you're going to do juice, Juicy Juice is at least 100% juice with no sugar added, and I give my son V8 once a day since he's picky about vegetables, but that's with one meal, I don't keep refilling and refilling "juice cups" all day like she does...they shouldn't even be running around with sippy cups at 4 years old. I'm surprised they're not on those potties 24/7 with diarrhea after all that juice.

No, the fact that she "prefers" organic isn't a reason to pick on her, or that she "doesn't give her kids fast food." If either of those statements were true, bravo. But she can't keep her story straight, lets them eat junk when it's convenient, and doesn't balance their nutrition at all even when she is feeding them organic food at home.

Yeah but Robyn Roberts brought up Beth, not Kate. Big difference.

___

It's really not a big difference at all. Kate had an opportunity to tell them before the interview not to mention Beth (if she didn't want Beth mentioned) and Kate obviously didn't do that, since Beth was mentioned.

Not that big a deal WHO did the mentioning, but the fact that Beth was mentioned means Kate didn't make an issue of it either way. If someone wants to ask about Beth, Kate will answer, just like she did on GMA.

That sure would look very odd for Kate to say that. That would open all kinds of doors for people to wonder what's going on between Kate and Beth. After all, Beth is one of the authors and is mentioned inside the back cover of the book. I think Kate was just hoping that no one would mention Beth at all.

I just find it interesting that Kate had SOOOOOOO much to say about Beth when she entrused Beth with the care of her children, helped reorganize her home, used Beth's home as the stage for 'making memories' and their annual family photo, and raved on about how Beth was considered family and truly loved them. But when the book that Beth co wrote is finally released Kate acknowledges Beth's contribution with a mere 'yes'.

tripletsmom said...

I'm sure that if Kate and Beth were on speaking terms, that they would be doing book tours together big time. I would rather have Beth sign my book than Kate. I bet that Beth feels "USED" by Kate, because that sure is what Kate did. In the beginning Kate put Beth on a pedestal and talked about what good friends they were. I'm not sure that Jon and Kate would have been able to write the book without Beth.

I fail to see why this keeps getting defended. It is NOT normal to blow off your co-author on a book tour when they are supposed to be your best friend! Even sheeple who are clueless about everyone who has now been cut out of their life, etc, would find this odd. And just how does one know that she "could have just asked before the interview that Beth not be mentioned"? How is this even legal when she did not write the book alone and maybe she was not given time beforehand to just tell exactly what she will and will not talk about. Why all the assumptions?

Hmm..I think Bonnie knew exactly what the story is on KON. Why else would she have asked the questions about whether Kate takes all the criticism seriously and pretty much defended her saying that when you are on tv there is always someone who does not like you--as if the hordes of people who are wise to KON is just a normal, run of the mill case of someone not liking a person.

Aunt Connie said...

Don't we really all know that Beth did the writing of the book? Don't we all see how Kate slaughters the English language every time she opens her trap? Remember her description of the wonderful Christmas sticky buns she made that were just "seething in butter." Seething. Yes, we all know seething is a description often used in describing baked items.

" I think Kate was just hoping that no one would mention Beth at all. "

IMO, if Beth were an unknown co writer of the book, there wouldnt be such speculation and criticisms regarding the lack of acknowledgment on Kate's behalf as
to Beth's overall contributions to the book and the current status of their relationship. However, Beth was introduced via the J & K reality show as being not only a good friend of J & K's but also one who played a pivotal role in the children's every day lives.
In true Kate form, turning the other cheek to the criticisms and speculation is far less damaging to her 'image'in the long run then defending her actions by speaking the truth.

My husband is a long time executive in the television industry. While he has nothing to do with TLC nor does he have any information about J&K, I want to clarify what Craft Services is on a show. It is a full array of food, both hot and cold. It is of excellent quality and taste with both hot and cold entrees along with snacks between meal times. If the stars of the show prefered an organic menu, than some organic selections would be served. It is provided for all people involved in the production. Again, it is not fast good and it can be organic. I know some people staffed on shows that make it a point to eat the Craft Services meals because they are so good and healthy choices can easily be made. If Craft Services is outside, they would be ridiculous to not partake of the food. The issue is the show, not the food.

" The issue is the show, not the food."

Then let me explain the food as it relates to the show. "Exhausted" Kate spends all her time making meals, cleaning up after meals, etc, etc. Yeah right. In the real world, though, craft services provides the meals on their "working" days, which is most of the week. So it is yet another lie from KON. Therefore, it's going to continue to get discussed, especially when she cries exhaustion yet again.

I totally agree with this! Also, I'm happy for people who feed their kids organic, stay away from fast food, etc. BUT, acting like you're better because of it is really out of line. And, to top it all off, she's basically lying about it. I'd "cook" every day if it meant having all of my food delivered. If I had the money, I'd be buying organic all of the time. It doesn't make Kate a better mother than anyone...sorry. I think she should let it go.

I do agree with some of the things this blog has to say. However, I am a huge fan of the show. I love all the Gosselin's. I do think it is getting kind of ridiculous that they are getting all of these freebies. But I try to think of how easy it would be for a family of 4 to go to the zoo, or Disney World etc... financialy, physically. For a family of 10 it's not very possible for them to go without stretching their dollar. So I think its great that the kids are getting all of these opportunities a family of 4 would get without question.
So that's my main argument. Not everyone is going to agree but that's life.
End Note: I love the Gosselin's. I wish them well in everything they do.

I guess people can even disagree on what they consider to be "fast food", as evidenced in some of the comments here. If you're gonna get nit picky and say fast food is ONLY food from places that you order from a drive thru or from the counter inside, then yeah, maybe they don't eat at fast food places a whole lot, but they certainly eat their share of "junk" food, which I, personally, classify as fast food. IMO, fast food fare can be from McD, Jack, BK, KFC etc BUT I also consider pre-cooked food that you just throw in the oven or deep fryer at home to be "fast food" as well as carnival food, food at sporting events, etc.

I also echo the sentiments here that it's ok to NOT feed your kids 100% organic, healthy ALL the time (but commend parents who do) and she should just suck it up and say "I prefer the kids not eat a lot of junk food, but...." I cook as often as possible, but there are just some nights when bringing home a pizza or some burgers just makes more sense...like when my daughter has two basketball practices and doesn't get out until 6:30 or my husband as to be at band rehearsal by 7 and I'm not getting home until after 6, etc.

And one more thing before I ramble anymore! Feeding your kids 'snack trays' with organic apple slices, organic peanut butter & (organic) fluff sandwiches doesn't necessarily make for a nutritious meal! I'd rather see those kids eat non-organic chicken, green beans and mashed potatoes than some of the organic "snacks" Kate passes off as meals.

I'm tired of hearing Kate's whining! At first I was understanding...until I started seeing all trips and her family taking care of the kids.

After this Hawaii "marriage". I am done! Please. Not realistic at all. And Kate always finds something to complain about.

Mattie is just like her....for all the world to see. When she grows up and the US has seen her act like that....she ain't gonna like mama or her comments about her or rolling her eyes about her daughter on national tv.

So very sad. Can't they see what they are doing? I cannot imagine having that many kids at once. But, now they'd survive...it would be Hard...but at least you wouldn't lose your kids because of this tv show.
