Another Book Signing

Kate was signing books again last night. It's nothing new, but this one includes an awesome pic of her!

Thank you lifeoriley for the link

Yeah, she obviously knew her picture was being taken -- so staged. But that hair, I'm sorry, I have to say it again. What the heck is wrong with her doing her hair that way? Or is that PA chic and I'm just not in on it?

iluveeyore said...

OMG....

''Their faith in God for one thing. And I get a kick out of the kids,'' said Allentown's Jean Freeman, who showed up before 5 p.m. with two full bags of Christmas gifts, books and dolls for every child.

That's Christmas gifts, books, and dolls for every GOSSELIN child.

Charlie Rose said...

Can you imagine how Kate acts when she gets home from one of these EXHAUSTING trips? She probably acts like she is the Queen and that Jon has done nothing with the kids the whole time she has been away. Maybe it will be one of their episodes... you know, how Kate "WORKS" so hard to keep the family going and how Jon just stays at home and does nothing all day with his 8 children.

The life they lead is so miserable. WHATEVER!

Sue said...

Seriously, what is with her HAIR? How does she look in the mirror and think that looks good. She is a very attractive women, but that makes her look insane.

Also, what is wrong with her hairdresser? I have a sneaking suspicion that he/she is a fan of this blog and is trying his/her best to make Kate look ridiculous.

konspiracytheory said...

I literally gasped out loud when I saw her hair. Does she not see what a train wreck it is? It's almost like a 'mood ring' reflecting the direction in which they are headed...

PA Mom said...

The store where Kate was signing books is about 10 minutes from my house.

The photo of her in the article really captures the essence of her current hair do....or should I say hair don't. I've seen some bad hairstyles, but really, what is she thinking. Ok, positive note for the day..at least her hair is clean, right?

Jami said...

She kind of looks like a peacock or something!!! Barf!

etownie said...

I don't know why the state of PA has to be brought in to this?

CJ said...

'GREAT' hair. It looks like a scrub brush glued to the back of her head.

Virginia said:
"Or is that PA chic and I'm just not in on it?"

I've lived in PA for over 50 yrs & to this day I've never seen another person with this 'style'. Please don't insult the residents of Pennsylvania.

AUNTYK.K. said...

I DON'T GET IT.
ARE PEOPLE SO DESPERATE THAT THEY ARE LOOKING TO "KATE' FOR SOMETHING THAT THEY ARE LACKING IN THEIR OWN LIVES?

I really don't understand why people, in general, MOCK TOWARDS OTHERS!

Really, WHAT ARE THEY MISSING IN THEIR OWN LIVES THAT THEY mob THESE TV PERSONAL?

AND , to stand in line, to sign a book?

How is doing this HONOURING GOD??

(Esp. without BETH, the one who wrote the book, Yes, it's Kates' notes, but BETH put the book together, it's all so sad!)

I wish I had the proper words to put into this 'post' so 'others' could see what I'm trying to 'say'..I've never put 'ANYONE" on a pedestal....except GOD...

And to think that 'these' people 'FLOCK" to the Gosselins WITHOUT RESEARCHING who they REALLY ARE, WHAT THEY HAVE DONE,(for years NOW), .....What kind of ROLE MODEL are we sending to our youth?

Instead of saying, "BELIEVE IN YOURSELVES", we're saying, "Look to k/j", and "Live like them", what?
Yah, learn to "lie,HIT, SPANK, cheat others out of money, put your children's every move out for 'all' to see, (even ped...), take, take, take, instead of GIVE, GIVE, GIVE>.....

I JUST DON"T GET IT>....ESP. since they're now using Bible stores to do their "dirty" work..

Well, I guess the only consolation is:
ONE DAY they WILL HAVE TO BE ACCOUNTABLE TO OUR HEAVENLY FATHER!!

If there's anyone who can 'word' what I'm trying to say better, please do so!! Thankyou!!

Barbara said...

It's official.

The back of her head has turned into a porcupine.

Don't get too close...those quills shoot at you when she's angry.

BostonBean said...

That article was just sickening to me.
To think that people would idolize a less-than-nice person because they see her on TV repeatedly.....tells us about their true selves.

BostonBean said...

Why would anyone allow their hairdresser to cut their hair like that? It's inhumane.

MoMom said...

What is she thinking with that hair? It looks so awful! Where are the damage control people when she really needs them?

Shannon said...

Im actually a hairdresser here in Ohio and I must have cut and styled Kate's hair do on at least 45 woman within the past 8 months I have worked there. I personally would never cut my hair like that but im just sayin.

sean said...

How sad that Jean Freeman who could have taken the books and dolls she bought to a fire station or a charity collecting for needy kids, thinks that in any way her gifts for the Gosselin children will even be appreciated.

Harriet said...

Shannon, there must be a lot of people out there without mirrors or good sense is all I can say. That can't look good on anyone, but why oh why does she not only furr up the back like some animal's behind, but then accentuate it by not coloring the bottom back of her hair? I could tolerate it a bit better before she grew the sandbar of bangs down in front. It was a bit softer and she didn't furr it as much then.

kate is a cocky bitch said...

i think i just lost my lunch looking at Queen Freebie Irene's hairy cut

judy said...

My hair is a VERY MODIFIED version of Kate's. But, the only reason it is that way now is because I'm growing it out and the back sticks up because of cow licks :(

Now onto the important stuff:
If you just watch the show occasionally (as I used to) and not really think about the exploitation aspect, then you can certainly argue that the show is entertaining.
I think the majority of people don't realize there is a whole backstory to the Gosselins.
If you notice the tone of most of the articles is "people are obsessed with this family...controversial...love them or hate 'em...."
This is all just bringing them more publicity.
They need someone to do a real story behind the show.
No one who has legitimate concerns about this show are being taken seriously. :(

samcarter said...

Bwhahahahaha. Oh my gosh, that hair makes me giggle every time I look at it. It's like she's got some weird rear-end mohawk going on, with a sleek front. What. The heck. Happened?

Kyakuma said...

Holy Turkey head Hair!

Marissa said...

Maybe Jon wasn't lying when he said that they were only going to get the kids small gifts and one big family gift. Maybe they get so much stuff from fans that they don't have to buy too much for Christmas. On the other hand, Kate is OCD about people germs so I don't know how much of the gifts actually make it home. Unless of course they are securely packaged enough to be germ proof.

On another note, they will probably always have some fans. Some people who are like they are and would do the same thing in their position. Or people who just don't know their history. But I imagine as more and more people find out the truth it can only be downhill from here. Also, based on the caliber of episodes this season, some fans will just get bored of watching and will move on.

Caro said...

I usually dont understand all the hair comments - but from this angle, I have to say that is awful!!

LKG said...

Her hair just proves that Kate is only interested in her own opinion and her own thoughts and cannot accept any opinion that differs from her own. There is no way that any professional hair stylist would do that to someone's hair unless they were forced into it by their client. I can absolutely see her in the chair demanding that ridiculous hair style and not listening to any suggestions of something that might look normal.

Chris said...

I'm sorry but you just have to feel sorry for people who would stand in line to see her. It's so sad actually.

Me said...

I think the fact that people look up to Kate Gosselin for advice on anything, is a sad commentary on the state of our society. They must be sorely lacking in their lives to think that this woman is an expert in anything. She is a pseudo Christian at best and proves it by doing book signings and taking credit for writing a book she didn't even write. I would like to know what is wrong with all these businesses that actually hire or sponsor them. This whole sham has become very distasteful to me.

Oreo said...

Who was it that took gifts to Kate to give her children? WHAT? #1 Those kids have a abundance of gifts already. #2 Dont you think that there might be some underprivleged children that would benefit from Christmas gifts more then the already spoile Gosselin's children?

machinegunsmom said...

This pro-Kate propaganda made me want to throw up my organic lunch. Save your full bags of Christmas gifts, books, and dolls for children who need them. I guess I dislike Kate because I only have one child--thanks for putting it into perspective for me!

Lisa said...

OMG, you cannot be serious. She actually left the house looking like that? Not only does her hair look like a disaster, I have to be honest the way she dresses is off. I mean she wears nice clothes but they don't seem to look right on her. Like she chooses styles that are not right for her frame or coloring or something. I cannot put my finger on it but she does not look right in a lot of the outfits she wears.

Snark said...

Holy Hairdo, Batman! I thought it was just a bad angle and that "poof" was something hanging on the tree behind her. I've never commented on her hair before, but that is just awful!

Ava said...

That is the worst I have seen her hair EVER! What is wrong with her hair stylist? Or did she have to do it herself that day?

K.Barrett said...

OMG, I'm totally serious when I saw this, it looks like a dead possum is laying on top of her head. I can't think of any other way to describe it. Awful.just.awful.

She needs to stay away from the Walmart discount hair salons.

WENDY said...

Does anybody remember Debbie Harry (Blondie)the singer? She used to have blond hair in front and dark hair in the back. Kate's hair is multi-striped in the front and dark in the back. That picture is just plain hilarious. She looks ridiculous!

my9cats said...

Kate's hair looks as though she backed into an electrical panel. Does she think she is so cool that she can start a fad with that hairdo?

The 80 year old woman who brought the two bags of gifts for each child was very sweet. I hope KON appreciate that her gifts may have come from a Soc Sec or pension check and may have been a sacrifice for her. It would be better for the gifts to be donated to a worthy group then toss them in a box for the next yard sale.

iheartmyhubby said...

I personally think the hair situation has nothing to do with the exploitation of the kids, but it is a direct reflection of her and then her life. She is someone who is obsessed with putting on appearances, she has so apparantly forgot to pay attention to the back of her head, the part she can't see. This is a reflection of Kate and her life. She is someone who wants to be put together and wants to shine, but only as it pertains to her. She is unconcerned how anyone else sees her but only how she sees her. For the rest of us who can truly see her (and see the back of her head), it is plain that she has so blatently misses the mark. What a sad woman.

3rd Rock From The Sun said...

I think that she wears her hair like that to get attention. If she had a normal hair-do, no one would talk about her.

Her face looks different. I can't quite put my finger on it, but something's different.

I also think that she is having all these book signing to boost sales. Her PR team probably suggested that she do it. But her smile is so fake.

heidiiiii said...

ROFLMAO!!

I didnt even read the article. The hairdo was enough for me. Love you all and your fun descriptions.

I have to go back and take another look.

undergrad RN said...

Re: Hair

WTF?

Kara said...

I think she was trying to go for Victoria Beckham's old haircut but FAILED big time!

mill3kids said...

To put an end to any questions of the "hair". Kate is sporting the obvious Tellum. The reverse mullet. I thought I was unique to use the word, but a quick Wikipedia search fully describes Kate's awesome Tellum perfectly. Amazing.

Melibee said...

OMGosh that hair!! It looks like she has a feather duster stuck to the back of her head.

For goodness sakes, someone needs to damage control that mess of tresses she's got going on.

beachchick said...

LOL ! OMG ! I'm a hairstylist, just want to say please don't blame the hairstylist,
I know that this is what Kate yells at the hairstylist to do. due to the fact that this is considered an improper haircut.A proper hair hair cut should be when all the hair is connecting somehow.

"not in steps"
Plus she needs low lights in the front to balance out the dark roots in the back.

Her hair is two completely different hairstyles
on one dingy head.

I could just picture the hairstylist telling her friends
no she wont let me fix it.
And knowing how different people tip...
I would guess Kate gives her an
autograph book or a plate of her free organic food so she could bother her on her lunch.

Travis Noodle said...

The picture was so staged. Puleaze!

KATE'S HAIR IS SO JACKED UP!!! HA!
The hair is simply an embarassment. I am convinced that Kate's hair STYLIST must HATE her!!!!

ThreeFarmers said...

I always try to refrain from participating in the hair chatter, but HOLY BRILLO PAD, BATMAN!

Can you imagine what her hair feels like. It must be pretty crunchy to defy gravity like that.

noteasybeingstupid said...

Before long one of her adoring fans is going to say they see an image of Kate on a piece of toast and is going to sell it on E-bay.

D'ocean said...

What I don't get is why fans feel compelled to give gifts to the Gosselins when there are so many familes that are in true need. (especially this time of year!!)

Kermit the Frog said...

I wonder how long it takes Kate to do her hair in the morning?

4girlsoneboy said...

" But that hair, I'm sorry, I have to say it again. What the heck is wrong with her doing her hair that way? Or is that PA chic and I'm just not in on it?"

I live near the Gs and I have only seen that "do" on roosters. We are after all a farming community.

My nomination for quote of the week.

DontGetTheHype said...

I had not clicked the link, but started reading the comments and kept telling myself, "It can't be that bad". I was wrong and you were right. I am sorry I ever doubted you all. That is atrocious.

Wasn't there an episode once of her getting her done and she seemed to be pretty in control of what she wanted.

Rosie said...

I agree, D'ocean....Even Kate has admitted in an interview, they are given many freebies. Why give them more? What about the kids who are going to bed hungry and don't know what a true Christmas is?!?

Leah4Prez said...

My understanding is that Jon decided he could "help" Kate by mopping the floor with her head.

Anonymous said...

Ummm...it looks like she has a mohawk on the back of her head. Kate, just go ahead and cut your entire head of hair that way and be done with it.

I put my name here as do not have a blogger account.

Marie-France said...

It looks like a tumor growing out of her head. What self-respecting stylist would allow herself/himself to create a style like that?? And yes, I agree with the other poster who mentioned that Kate now has expensive clothes from Ann Taylor and other upscale stores, but money CANNOT buy good taste. The colors and cuts of the clothes do not work for her at all. She needs a personal stylist. (Surprised TLC has not thought of this already!) Or, maybe another crossover show! She could go on "What Not to Wear" with Stacy and Clinton. Now that would be interesting! Stacy and Clinton would not take her crap and Nick Arrojo would have a heart attack trying to fix that nightmare of a hairdo. Someone else said that Kate is very attractive. I do not find her so at all. I think she is repulsive. Her stupidity, meanness, and total lack of social graces make her completely UNATTRACTIVE in my book.

I really dont have an opinion of her hair but this comment made me laugh

jen in pa said...

Virginia,

That is most definitely not PA chic or any other kind of chic for that matter.

Kelly said...

I live in PA and like Kate's hair. I actually have that haircut and had it before Kate. To each his own.

marypoppins said...

Jean Freeman, who showed up before 5 p.m. with two full bags of Christmas gifts, books and dolls for every child


I took this off of the article.
This makes me very sad.
Please please if you can afford to give this year, please give to a truly needy child. These kids HAVE enough and then some.

Please look in your own community or child's school. There is someone who has lost one or both pay checks,,,

LauraJean said...

Marie-France, I agree with you 100%, ugly on the inside does not make pretty on the outside and, in Kate's own words, she is "mean and ugly" and a person completely lacking in kindness or charity.

Dentist said...

In the photo, Kate looks like she's wearing some type of dental appliance...those can't be her real teeth !

Holy Sheet said...

That is just the butt-ugliest hairdo ever.

You got a brown boy buzz cut at the nape of the neck, blond tuck- behind- the- ear on the left, a striped blond folded over carpet on the right, and a fuzzy multi-colored duck butt in the back.

Holy Sheet said...

Cha Cha Cha Chia

3rd Rock From The Sun said...

Dentist,

I think that those teeth are "cosmetic teeth."

A crazy hairdo, for a crazy woman.

the gift of each day said...

Can someone please give me the "back story" on the Gosselins, or their family's "history", or tell me where to look for it?

Whooooohoooo said...

Her hair looks like it's about to jump off her head and take flight.

Sarah said...

She needs to throw a wig in with her bundle of k-mart layaway...

I'm just saying...

Marissa said...

It's funny to see the difference between Kate then and now. She said that she used to not care about being fashionable and didn't have the time, energy, or money to worry about such things. Because you know, she has eight kids to take care of. Like other moms without eight kids have all the time in the world to shop and can afford to spend tons of money on their wardrobe. Please. She made it seem like it was frivolous and such a waste of time and money to be worried about what you wear.

Well, what a difference a season makes. I'm all about moms taking time for themselves and not always being last on the list. However, considering her comments and what she used to wear not that long ago...She either has a stylist, is taking a lot of "me" time to devote to shopping for her new "fancy" clothes, is spending a lot of money on her wardrobe or is getting her clothes free now too from Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, etc. After all, I believe they are part of the Gap family of companies.

So which is it Kate? Are you getting your clothes for free or are you spending lots of money on your new look? Funny how the family that promotes budgeting is looking all shiny these days. Please stop giving advice when you are getting so much for free and have more money now than you ever have.

Jen said...

Is it just me, or as the show gets more and more improbable and laughable, the crazier her hair gets?

It's like the hair is a barometer of her mental state or something. I mean seriously...who in their "right" mind would CHOOSE to have hair like that? Maybe she's trying to force a trend and see how many people she can get to change their hair too? :)

All I can say is YIKES, that's the worst hair I'm seen in a long time!

Marissa said...

Since Jon wrote (wink, wink) the book too, why doesn't he do any of the book signings?

kate is a cocky bitch said...

maybe the reason why Jon isn't participating any any of the book parties is because he's busy looking for a steady job (wink wink).
Thank goodness Pineapple-Hair is out there tirelessly hocking the book or the poor things were never make any money

Sue said...

As a child my Grandmother used to tell me "Pretty is, as pretty does." My response to people who say Kate is pretty.

jillian said...

Kate has decided she is royalty! She has crowned herself with a hair crown!

can't believe that hair said...

I thought I was ready for the hair, but I think I gasped when I saw that pic. Oh my gosh Kate! I think she's really pretty but that hair? She should grow out the top (obviously) and keep the rest short. It used to look really cute before the top went crazy. I'm just so surprised that she doesn't go to a better stylist. If she went to a good stylist he or she would never do her hair like that!

GingerRose said...

It makes me so sad to know that people are so fooled they are buying presents for the Gosselins. There are so many worthwhile charities that are really struggling this season.
And yes, the hair. Before it was just kinda odd. But now I am convinced that Ms. Katie Irene mouthed off to her stylist.

Melibee said...

I think this hair-do should be called "the Kate Mullet". It's like a reverse old-school mullet, with Kate's being long in the front and short & spiky in the back, but the gem is that the old motto can still apply - it's the hair style that is "all business in the front, party in the back".

Kate, you hipster you.

Tangerine Tanya said...

This song is dedicated to Katie Irene Gosselin.......

HAIR-By the Cowsills

crazycatlady said...

Anyone notice that the book signing is at Hackman's Bible Book Store...maybe because even the real deal knows she's a hack?!!!

Shannon said...

Yikes! That hair cut only proves Katie's issues. When she's asking for freebies, maybe TLC needs to find an eye doctor to get her some glasses. Not being able to see is the only way I could imagine why any soul would have that mess she thinks is a hairstyle.

Why anyone would let their stylist do this, especially someone who loves the spa as much as Kate does, I do not understand.

I recall that episode when they showed her getting her hair cut. Her poor stylist! This was the 5 seconds of fame Kate would share with her and yet she was showed doing THIS to someone. Now we know why she made such a point to say this was what Kate wanted. Apparently, even the woman doing her hair must know how awful she looks.

It's really sad since she was really pretty with long hair and cute with that short do when they did the show at first.

Just pick: Long or Short and stick to only one. Lordy be, I would have assumed Kate could make this decision. After all, she controls everything else around her. Then again, maybe she's too concerned getting her baldy husband a new head of hair to bother with her own.

Carolina said...

Forget the ugly hair, what did she do to her FACE? Is that botox? Nose job? It's driving me nuts.

MsPeabody said...

It is trully baffling, I don't understand how KON'S fans could possibly dismiss their behavior on this show. This family is so dysfunctional, I can not stand five minutes of watching them interact let alone stand for hours to get a book signed or a glimpse of Kate..uggggg! I watched an older video online of where people were so excited for KON to come out on stage in a church and I couldn't believe the clapping and shouting going on when they finally came out. It was over the top to say the least. I just don't get the hoopla. Geesh, all you sheeple need to get a grip, it's ridiculous and shows how very empty your lives must be and that is trully sad.

debi said...

I used to watch this show all the time, and only a few...very few times did they even make a reference to God...and it's not what they said...they just loaded the kids up and said they were going to church. I must have missed something.

debi said...

I think the style of her hair should be called a "Rearhawk".

It looks like a skunk was thrown in a blender and what was left was glued to her head. Awful! If this is her attempt at being trendy, she needs to try something else.

Do you really think Kate would allow anyone else to be in the spotlight other than herself?

lifeoriley said...

Yes, the hair is weird, IMO, but the thing that got me about the article was the 80 year old woman with gifts for the G's. Obviously, she doesn't know or care about the real story of the Gosselins. She probably does not "do" computers, if she's anything like my parents. I can't imagine that's she's searching the internet or blogs, anyway.
There are several worthwhile causes right in the Lehigh Valley that this woman could've donated the gifts to. Her gifts will probably wind up at next year's Gosselin yard sale. It's a sad commentary on our society that people are idolized just because they are on TV.

Gregory House said...

re: her hair

if she lets it grow out just a little more, she will look like that English guy who hosted the MTV Video Awards this year...

ThreeFarmers said...

Cha Cha Cha Chia



BWHAHAHahahaHaHaHahahha

looks better on TV said...

I don't like Kate's hair normally. But I was unprepared for this picture. It looks so much harsher in this picture than it does on TV. I had no idea the back was shaved so short like that. I can't imagine Jon or her kids even like that. And the front just... hanging. For a few weeks I thought she was growing it out, but seeing the shaved hair, it's all obviously intentional. Yikes!

BostonBean said...

Everytime she is harsh with her words, another piece of hair sticks out in the back. It's a never-ending battle.
She will be her own undoing!
People who look to her for direction on parenting need to turn off the TV and read books about parenting.
People keep excusing this program, because occasionally Jon seems much nicer and people think they "know" the kids. But there is no excusing her anymore.
I just got through traveling and can tell you that although exciting and sometimes necessary --the constant travel is a big disruption in a family.
She claims that the kids love to travel. They have no choice.
They and their sleep and their connections to home are constantly disrupted. Normalcy needs to come to those children for a few years.
The show is dying a slow death. I'm sure it will be off the air soon.

MichelleS said...

In respone to Gregory House-
..lol his name is Russel Brand i think..or perhaps we could call her Kate-scissorhands?..(sans edwardscissorhands) i have to say that too her hair would be cute if she would lay the back of it flat or stacked as that type of cut should be,and keep the sides even. In the early episodes, it was just right excpet for the small rooster fluff she had in the back..lol thats a good name:Rooster fluff

Virginia said...

"Pineapple Head" -- priceless!!

GingerRose said...

Boston Bean, you have got it! It's like Pinnochios nose .... everytime she tells a lie, another spike appears.

Tammy H. said...

If any of the KON followers read this blog, please don't give to them, give to GoodWill or Salvation Army, orphanage (?), homeless shelter, etc. There are tons of children who go without a single gift for Christmas. Yes, it was nice the 80 year old though enough of the kids to do something for them, but I was thinking, what about her finances? I mean, she may be set, but being elderly, she may not have too much money to spend on herself of even her bills. And then the complaining on the show about some of the gifts viewers have sent to them...They have enough PEOPLE! No one is concerned about the exploiting of those kids..and Kate riding their coattails. She is nothing special, there are other women who have given birth to twins or septuplets..I think they have had their 15 minutes of fame and they took everyone for a ride. TLC should find a family who appreciates the gifts and money, like the septuplets I saw on their the other day. They were the only African American tups in America..they were a cute family..down to earth, worked for what they have.
Beth should be the one out signing the book, Not Kate...she is a money hungry bi**h. I love the kids, but they are going to be so screwed up because of Kate wanting the lime light. UGH..nothing I can say about that hair...Nasty...

mollybloom said...

Don't really care much about the hair except that it looks high maintenance (I know, I know). I thought the same thing about all the colored stripes she had running through the front. For a mother of eight, organic lunch-maker, garage organizer, yard sale promoter, memory maker, etc., etc., that's one fussy hairdo. I suspect this exhausted mother of multiples spends a lot of time at the salon to keep the "celebrity" look going. So who's minding the kids? Just sayin'.

noteasybeingstupid said...

Tammy H, there are definitely some KON followers who read this blog. So, maybe your message will get to them.

Tami said...

Cyndi Lauper has less going on in her hair that that. Geez...

The poor old lady must not have ANYONE loved ones in her life to be so obsessed with watching that over and over and bringing toys to kids who have too much? Just sad. If she had any loved ones I wish they'd talked some sense into her. Those toys are not going to end up being played with. Not at all.

MotorCityMom said...

Honestly, her hair looks appalling. The first thing that came to mind is it looks like one of those things that you keep outside of your door to scrape your shoes on to clean them off before entering the house. How on earth can she think this is attractive.

enoughalready said...

As the saying goes, you cant hide bitchiness behind bangs!!

lisa.k. said...

I hate to keep talking about Kates hair, but it looks like how my little sister used to cut her barbie's hair, lol I swear it looks just like that. It kills me how she is running around with that book and never even mentions who really wrote the book, isn't that called bookjacking?

Somehwhereinoh said...

My sister in law has for years proudly sported a hair style very similar to Kate's hair style. The hair infamously known to our family as, the 'fright wig'.

Kate was signing books again last night. It's nothing new, but this one includes an awesome pic of her!




Question - why is the pic being called "awesome"? I think Kate Gosselin and her money grubbing ways are detestable. Are there posters on this site who like Kate?

cheryl said...

The hairdo looks like a reincarnation of something long gone - or maybe the back side of a gorilla at the zoo!!
Let's hope the sixteen bags of gifts, books and dolls are donated to a worthy charity. What those kids don't need is more stuff.
What are the new locals seeing???

Cindi said...

ThreeFarmers,

Your Chia comment is sooo funny...Perfect discription....

That was a sarcastic statement. Besides, "awesome" isn't exactly a positive word.

I have one word for Kate's hair.

SWIFFER

NancyH said...

When we first met Kate she had a soft look about her. Now her hair is scary, her face is shiny and greasy and she looks like she took one too many valiums.

ThreeFarmers said...

Sorry, the Chia comment was not mine. I was merely laughing at it.

Sue said...
Seriously, what is with her HAIR? How does she look in the mirror and think that looks good.

It seems like she doesn't have access to a mirror to check out the back of her hair. I know some women like that, as long as the front looks ok, that's all that matters.

I personally would hate to be seen in public with a woman with hair like that. I wonder if anyone tries to 'enlighten' her about how bad her hair looks

Susie said...

I agree the hair is stupid but so what. Why is Kate's hairstyle important?

Jill said...

So many sheeple are at these appearances. The stores get mobbed. Shouldn't we show up too and spread our message of what we know about them? We should be protesting.

Travis Noodle said...

Thanks Three Farmers. You stirred my curiosity and so I went looking on dictionary.com and here is what I found.

Awe"some\, a. 1. Causing awe; appalling; awful; as, an awesome sight. --Wright.

2. Expressive of awe or terror.

Hollie23 said...

Someone tell her the vacuum cleaner hair do isn't in and was never in- I have never seen her hair look so awful, usually it doesn't bother me at all. She would look so nice with a darn bob.

my9cats said...

Another book signing will be Tues, 12/23, 6-9p, at B&N, Promenade Shops at Saucon Valley, PA. Off Center Valley PKWY and 309.

That's Kate.
Totally awesome.

Leadfut2002 said...

What is wrong with this woman. Does she not realize that it looks like her hair has not been brushed in the back in years?? KATE, FIND ANOTHER HAIR STYLE!!!!

Susie said...

*******
You are right. The parents are stupid and what they are doing is stupid. Why should the hair matter? Just another trainwreck in the Gosselin world. It just shows how self important she is..to show up with that joke on her head and think that others will find her classy and sophisticated : D

hula girl said...

The book signings must be working. MB has jumped back into the Top 10 on the NYT bestseller list.

http://www.nytimes.com/pages/books/bestseller/

All the work Kate is doing and half of it is going into Beth's pockets. Yay! Beth must be enjoying spending her time at home with her family while Kate goes out and sells her book. Good deal forher!

Mommy Dearest said...

When do those children see their mother if she is always out traveling to these book signings ?

Four said...

It's painfully obvious (for many more reasons) that kate does NOT have a BFF. If she did, the hair would be.....different. No bff let's a friend out in public looking like that.

Paid lackeys, toadies and production crews with an agenda, sure....

WENDY said...

All your comments on THE HAIR is like reading a comedy. I laughed and laughed. Thank you! Chia pet indeed.

Level Head said...

I have to say (with the exception of the hair of course!) that Kate looks really good in that photo. She looks like she has lost lots of weight and must be on some diet or something (Jenny Craig endorsement on the horizon perhaps????!!)

She didn't look "exhausted" at all. LOL!!

How she can make "appearances" for a book that she didn't even write though is beyond me. A pretty big lie for someone who is supposed to be "Christian".

noteasybeingstupid said...

I would be willing to be that half of the profits from the book are not going to Beth, even though they were supposed to. I would bet that if there were any way Kate could block her from getting any of the profits, she has.

Diane said...

Thank you for bringing that up. I thought I was about to be the first person to mention it in all of these hundred comments. I think most of us are agreeing about the hair, but how about the real problem here: the fact that Kate is spending MORE time away from her family. I thought she did this book for the "kids"--so they could always have those memories to cherish. I guess that's about all they will have, since their mother is absent from their life constantly and will not be there to create new memories with them. I guess signing books, feeling self-important, and being rude to sheeple who adore her is more important.

Re: old lady who brought them toys...it seems to me that if Kon were truly in the giving back spirit, they might have made a comment during the St. Jude's episode (or posted on their website) with something to the effect of "We are so very fortunate to have all of our needs met. In lieu of sending holiday gifts to our children, please donate those toys to St. Jude's or another children's charity."

tmc said...

OMG!!! That hair is unreal. I think Kate definitely has had some Botox or something. Her face looks strange....very plastic looking...

Nellie's Mom said...

I'm honestly beginning to think that Kate just doesn't know what the back of her head looks like.. or she's letting her beloved Hannie work on the back of her head. In any case, if someone is sending a Christmas card full of glitter and 'dustilies', could you please include a picture of her hair so she can finally see what it looks like? (Just kidding, as much as I feel like sending Kate a Christmas card full of glitter, I wouldn't waste a stamp on her and encourage others to save their 42 cents as well.)

I'm now going to go bang my head against the wall to see if I can get that image of Kate out of my head.

Harriet said...

Thank you for posting about the immediate removal of the wrapping paper being unnecessarily anal. My husband recently passed away and perhaps this Christmas my kids may enjoy opening Christmas presents without the same anal requirement to get the paper immediately into the trash after each present. I don't want to remove him from the kids' memories, but there are some traditions I think we'll be healthier for losing.

nancy said...

Kate,
Do yourself a big favor and fix your hair. Let your hairstylist recommend a style to best suit you. I get that you were probably trying to be cool and chic, but you missed the mark on that one. FIX it! You're on national television.

Trina said...

tmc said...

__________
Compare the photo taken in 2006 (the one of the family and the separate one of Jon and Kate together). It has only been two years since that photo was taken. At that time, she had a cute cut and her face looked perfectly normal. Now she's got that hair (enough said about that already) and her face looks bizarre. It is clear that she's had major work done, but it looks "done" and unnatural. She uses those long bangs on the side to cover the wonky eye (which was not wonky if you look at the picture from '06). I wonder if she has body dysmorphic disorder to some degree. She sure looks bizarre.

Veronica said...

Trina-I don't think she's had cosmetic surgery at all. It seems she's lost a lot of weight from 2006 til now. Weight loss can make a person look different.

Emma's Mom said...

She's wearing a turkey on her head!

Sydney said...

I don't know about botox or something, but she surely does look a lot older. Maybe being a "celebrity" has aged her. She looks hardened. She acts so different too, and that is certainly damage control, but she looks and acts strange.

RuthinVA said...

I think Kate has become so thin, that her head now looks too big for her body. Because of her weight loss her neck looks longer, her face looks longer and then that puff in the back of her head makes her head sorta look like a basketball on top of her shoulders.
And NO it doesn't matter what her hair looks like, but it is mixed in with the perfect image Kate tries to project of herself, Jon and her family. She tries to project everthing she is doing and has done has no negative effect to her family and other people and most of us know that is not true. It's the way she treats her fans as if she is above those that are supporting her. It is the way she treats family and friends. It is just that old saying pretty is as pretty does, a lot of people think she just not pretty any longer or maybe never thought she was.

mkb77 said...

Kate probably wears her hair the way she does just to upset people on message boards.

Steph said...

who the heck told her that her hair looks good like that?

pippu said...

I saw the picture and I screamed. I literally screamed.

nomoredrama said...

That thing on the back of her head looks like the brush on the street sweeper I just passed getting home. Complete with salt, slush and spray!

The front looks like something the street sweeper picked up that you would never want on your head, melting and leaving skid marks as it goes!

cheryl said...

Ever wonder why the g's have no BFF? because they tried to clue them in on some things and hair was one. The back looks like its one inch long and spiked. Ugh!!
Sincerely hope Beth and family have a great holiday season as a
result of the book sales.
Happy Holidays All!

Arieslikekate said...

Wonder if anyone brought the latest issue of GOOD HOUSEKEEPING for Kate to sign? Or does she only do books?

The latest issue of GH has some letters to the editor about KON.

Seems to br 66% pro vs 33% con. Someone pointed out that KON were not GH material!

Arieslikekate said...

I loved that LAST line of that article " companies and strangers shower the family with free trips and gifts ".... GAG

If you go on Ebay, all of the autographed copies of MB are very high priced. Wonder if katie gets a percentage of that, too?

iluveeyore said...

I also think that she is having all these book signing to boost sales. Her PR team probably suggested that she do it.

All authors have book signings to boost sales. That is, pretty much, their only purpose.

Strangely enough, their publisher said that there would not be a "book tour." If what Kate is doing is not a "book tour," I don't know what is.

jack's Mom said...

No Way is that hair PA chic! No one in Berks county would cut her hair like that nor would she allow anyone in Berks to cut her hair. That cut is straight out of NY (ya, know where she "works")!

my9cats said...

Jacks mom,

Puleeze... I am a New Yorker and trust me, unless it is a day with hurricane force winds, NO-ONE has a hairstyle like that. Kate might think she is cool, but to people with taste she looks like a freak.

Happy Holidays to GWOP mods and posters, pro and KON alike.

Sophia said...

That must account for part of the long lines! People just want to make money off the money makers themselves.

Dont let a bidding auction on ebay mislead you in to believing that many are willing to pay high dollar for an autographed copy of J & K's book. Chances are, the seller of the autographed book is bidding on the book auction him/herself to make it appear as if the book is a 'hot' item.

Tigerfan said...

I wouldnt be surprised if the 2009 season of J & K features Kate sporting shoulder length hair extensions sponsored by the Paris Hilton hair extension line. Kate will no longer feel the need to slap Jon as she will be to pre occupied doing the 'weave' tap on her head.

Barb said...

Wow! I just went to Ebay and found 4 signed copies of Multiple Blessing. They are asking for a buy it now at $99, $88, $75 and one currently in a bidding war for $34. Ugh! Maybe that's why there was such a long line for Kate to sign the book. ;-)

kathy said...

its so surprising that Kate has so many fans!! A rock star popularity?? what is wrong with those people? are those fans the majority? does most of the world adore this woman?? I just don't get it at all.

Get a Clue said...

The show topped out at 3.4M viewers for their most advertised episode ever. It seems to usually have less than 3M for a new episode. How on earth does that make her a star much less rock star popularity? I think there's just some rabidly fanatic fans in there.

Mikemom said...

Are you sure Kate isnt selling those copies of her book herself on Ebay? More money in her pocket....

Sara said...

I was just on facebook and saw that the show's fan page was shut down like on twop, but it started a completely new one. So the first threads there talk about how nasty the conversations had gotten before.

Dunwoody Mom said...

Just purusing Ebay. The most expensive books are being sold from Grand Rapids, MI - isn't that where the publisher is located. Also, the one for $34.00 is located in Allentown, PA. Several are also being sold by the same seller - just look at the description. A bookstore in Iowa has some for $15.00 - I guess they are just trying to get rid of them.

It's hysterical. Someone actually thinks they are going to get $99.00 for this book.

Of course, I could see Kate being it.

Marie-France said...

Last night was the rerun of the visit to the NICU. It was just as vile as the first time I saw it. However, I did notice (due to multiple shots where Kate's back was to the camera) that she did not have anywhere near the degree of "tumor hair" growing out of the back of her head. It was basically cut short and layered and was relatively flat. That episode was probably filmed in late spring or early summer (I am assuming)as I believe it aired in September. The "tumor hair" must have come about after that. Just an observation....

Libby said...

Not sure if this has been mentioned yet, but there is another book signing tonight at Barnes & Noble in the Promenade Shops at Saucon Valley. DH and I figure we'll go, grab some coffee and just watch the fun unfold! Eh...not really...
;-)
LOLOL!!

Snarkygirl said...

I have never commented on Kate's hair...scary. She does look like a chia pet, great comment.

The 80 year old woman made me sad. It reminded me of my gram ( she passed 10 years ago). She had a big heart and was often taken by people like Kate. No matter what we said she just ignored us -- felt it was her Christian duty to give. We just couldn't convince her that some people were not worthy of her kindness. Likely this 80 year old woman just ignores her family or perhaps her family are also fans.

What really got me was the 19 year old fan in the pic...19 years old!? What 19 year old, Christian or otherwise, would find this woman appealing? I am a tecaher (actually college prof). My students are 19-25. I work in the buckle of the bible belt and teach a lot of Christians. I can not imagine any of my students finding this women appealing. That pic just baffles me.

I am going to ask my students (when Spring session classes start) what they think about this show...if you are interested I'll send in a report.

Arieslikekate said...

RE: Ebay

People know hot "hot" J&K+8 is, and they figure people who will never get a chance to actually meet the Grinch in person will pay big $$ for an autographed copy of the book.

I mean,Kate is a celebrity, right?

Arieslikekate said...

I actually saw KATE cry, in last night's repeat episode about where the 'tupt's were born.

I bet some of the hospital staff was NOT glad to see Kate walk through those doors..

"oh no, not again!"

Marie-France said...

Snarkygirl said: I am going to ask my students (when Spring session classes start) what they think about this show...if you are interested I'll send in a report.
___________
Yes, would you? I'd really be interested to know what they have to say. It seems that a large portion of KON's fan base is in that age group and I am trying to figure out the draw.

Tami said...

I have no clue why a 19 year old would like her. They are usually more intelligent. My 17 year old hates that show and KON. She says they make people never want to get married.

canttakeitanymore said...

Okay..I had to finally post something because the other day my hairdresser asked me if I have ever seen the show and if I like her hair. To my horror, she said it would look cute on me. Someone posted on this site about it looking like a reverse mullet and it made me laugh. As soon as I have sextuplets and my own show I am gonna fire her! lol

I must admit I liked the show in the beginning but then I started wondering how often these kids get privacy or time to themselves or whatever. Once I saw the episode about the special bright lighting being installed I knew they are filming in that house way too much. Lately it is just a show about them having a show or going on the trips and such. So not only do the kids not have privacy they are dragged all over the place. At least before they were at home. I wonder why anyone would buy this book...what is said in the book that hasn't already been said? We've heard their version of the story and we are seeing the real version. I am not inspired whatsoever by these people. They do not conduct themselves like a "loving family". They conduct themselves like they are running a sweatshop. Honestly I hope they read this blog and realize that all of this "damage control" is viewed as just that. Nobody here is eating the spoonfuls of "organic" bull crap they are feeding us. Those kids are the real concern here...the hair do is just desert!

Kristen said...

How does she get her hair to stand straight up like that? I thought getting hit by lightning was a one in a million chance?

Stacie said...

Just think - every time she is gone on book signings...the kids get a nice break from her!
Not that she seems to do much when she is home, lately she is always on her cell phone.

Irish-Gal said...

To me her hair looks like it's up in a bun. Except it's kind of like one of those spikey buns they sell in WDW to plop over your ponytail. Perhaps she's growing her out and she has a stub of a ponytail underneath the spikey part? Just a though...

iFigureditOut said...

I finally figured out what Kate's rat's nest hairdo mop looks like: either a skater-dude (as in the '90s) or the misfit elf on Rudolph (the one who wants to be a dentist)

Hahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!

SchaedenKON said...

It's the week before Christmas! How I wish I had not had to be working when my children were school age. I missed being able to be the Mom who helped at the class party, the Girl Scout meeting, and the holiday craft. Stay at home mother my @$#$%~!!!!!(Happy holidays to the mods and everyone here on the board. To the mods, thanks for all your hard work!)

Lfwh said...

Here is a link to a video of the same book signing. Her hair looks even worse from a front angle than it did from the side.

BostonBean said...

We do NOT chew gum at book signings!

Roxy said...

Wouldn't the these signing, which are large gatherings of sheeple, be a great opportunity for us non-fans to show up in protest and spread our thoughts?

Judy in Indiana said...

I don't think her hairdresser likes her enough to donate the coloring of her whole head of hair. I really like how it is only colored in the front and dark in the back. maybe it is a new trend, you only have to color the parts of your hair that you can see when you look in the mirror. Think of the money we could all save if we lived by this rule!

Taryn said...

Remember in that one episode where she got her hair cut? It looked like an inexpensive salon. Do you think that was just for the show and she doesn't really go there?

The tapered part in back needs highlighting or something too. It's all blonde on top and dark on the bottom. It's also beginning to resemble a Koosh ball.

Bad Hair Sucks said...

Taryn, I remember that episode when she got her hair done. You are right - it was a very cheap salon - the kind that takes walk-ins. Now that Kate is a "celebrity," TLC may be paying for her hair cuts, color and style. I'd like to know to what the hell kind of a place they are sending her. She looks utterly ridiculous!! Or - maybe she thinks the 'do is part of her "brand." HA!

MsPeabody said...

Kate is getting a lot of attention concerning her hair, that's for sure! I'm guessing she likes it that way.

MsPeabody said...

If you have extra gifts to give, take them to a homeless shelter where families have lost everything and the hope is gone from the little ones eyes. This act of kindness could bring the hope and some joy back to these little ones who seem to be carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders while they've watched their parents struggle to keep them fed and clothed and many who have watched their homes taken away for whatever reason. Or take them to a Foster home, orphanage, just somewhere they will be appreciated by the recipients. Thank You to all who give, you bring smiles to faces and love to hearts!

MsPeabody said...

mill3kids said...
To put an end to any questions of the "hair". Kate is sporting the obvious Tellum. The reverse mullet. I thought I was unique to use the word, but a quick Wikipedia search fully describes Kate's awesome Tellum perfectly. Amazing.


A "Tellum", that is so funny! Please Kate, "Tell um" "Tell us" "Tell em" the truth!

Dunwoody Mom said...

As far as the hair, the 'do may be on purpose. It gets people talking about Kate. You know Kate wants the attention on her at all times, good or bad.

patrickwm68 said...

Worst hairstyle ever.
