Good! It's about time. Anyone involved in pimping out their kids should be OUT! I'm glad that a new year will bring an end to their 15 minutes of fame, at the expense of their kids.

margojata said...

At least the Duggars work and don't exploit their kids. I think Jim Bob is VERY handsome and he seems like a really great husband and father. KON can't even compare to this family. No wonder they're out!

lisak said...

I knew we wouln't have to suffer much longer. Most of all, maybe those kids won't either.

Onyx said...

Damn, Some of my favorite things are on that list...Project Runway is also "spent" ("Make it work!"),Lost is out, my pretty Chanel sunglasses are out, and yet Star Trek and their lame new movie is in. How sad....

Funny article though i love how shoplifting is "spent" and counterfeiting is "saved", Searching one's soul is "spent" and searching one's wallet is "saved" LOL

K.Barrett said...

The tups are definitely losing their cuteness and J/K are nothing special. Big deal that Kate had 6 kids at once thanks to science. I'm surprised it took this long for them to be Out.

Virginia said...

I am also in the DC area. Glad to see the Post recognized how spent these con artists really are and included them in their famous in and out list for the year.

GingerRose said...

Amusing list, nice to have some humor to bring in the New Year.
Looks like Kate's hairstyle is out, too (although, Riahnna carried it off well).

Funny article. It just shows that people are getting tired of Jon and Kate's exploitation of their children. All of Kate's lies are getting people to open their eyes about the truth. I would love to see the look on Jon and Kate's face when they see this article.

I love the Duggars. Michelle and Jim Bob are for real people. They know how to treat each other right.
I have never seen any of their children having a melt-down. You will never see Michelle yelling hellllllooooo all over the place at Jim Bob. You will never see Michelle hit Jim Bob. You will never see Michelle belittle Jim Bob. The list could go on and on.

It's time to pull the plug on Jon and Kate.

Vera Blue said...

Add to the list Multiple Blessings-out The Duggars 20 and Counting-in

Bye J&K said...

Haha, too funny.

ELR said...

I live in the DC area and saw that this morning too. Had to laugh.

DirtyDisher said...

Greedy bitches are never out. And what's all this love for the Duggers? Isn't there a site for them? Cults without pity? Jim Bob is about as handsome as a bowl of oatmeal and his homespun family is depressing. So is his product placement...and free trips and $350.00 baby blankets. Pffft.

Harriet said...

It's about time that Jon and Kate got the message and got themselves and their kids off TV. It's past time.

Corinne said...

I am feeling so proud right now - I live near DC and this is awesome!

Kristy said...

Don't worry. Even if Jon & Kate's ratings go down to zero, maybe Washington will bail them out with your tax dollars, thereby keeping the show on forever!

highondegrassi said...

"And what's all this love for the Duggers? Isn't there a site for them? Cults without pity? Jim Bob is about as handsome as a bowl of oatmeal and his homespun family is depressing."

I totally disagree! I think he's very handsome too! If Michelle kicked him to the curb I would pick him up in a second!
He sure looks a lot better than Jon with his greasy hair, I mean fake hair.

Momto5 said...

Glad to see it. I think they'll continue the overexposure througout this year, but it will be coming to an end sooner rather than later.

3rd Rock From The Sun said...

DirtyDisher,

Oh yes, greedy bitches are out and spent.

How can you say that Jim Bob isn't handsome? He's better looking than Jon, and he makes better looking children. I don't see the Duggars as depressing at all.

What I like about Michelle and Jim Bob, is that they respect each other as a couple. You can NEVER say that about Kate and Jon.

KON is STUPID said...

Good! "Spent." I hope it's really meant to be! Goodbye and Good Riddance, KON! And good riddance to the racoon-in-heat head.

bcd5 said...

Yay! Maybe the general population is finally seeing the Gosselin family for what they are - greedy, ungrateful, and annoying. Let me rephrase that - the Gosselin parents; children only know what they are taught and what they live. I haven't watched the show in over two months, and I used to be hooked on it. Maybe other viewers are coming around too - we can only hope! Happy New Year :)

fxfanatic said...

Eh, I'm not so crazy about the Duggars either. It's nice to see them working and how nice they all get along but there is something "creepy" about them.
However, they are no where near as strange or conniving as the Gosselins.
I like Michelle Duggar's voice. I have never heard her yell but then again, I really haven't watched the show all that much.

FXfanatic said...

Cults without pity?
Ha ha!
Great one!

ThreeFarmers said...

It's shameful to think that sacrificing your children's privacy so that the parents wouldn't have to hold down jobs to support the family was ever "in".

oldsouth said...

yeah--I agree, it's about time that KON was listed on the "spent" list.I have no use for any of these tv families--they're basically all the same, something for nothing attitude.Boring and bland.
A more interesting story would be the one I saw reported about @ a week ago---the couple that gave birth to the quintuplets--WITHOUT any help from any art.insem.,or invitro.,...whatever... I think the couple is from the States.Anyone else out there hear of the story that was in the newspapers? Ultimately a more timely story than KON's slightly embelished tale of "wanting just one more baby".I'm sure this couple could give the dried-up J&KP8 a run for their over paid salaries.

Janelle P. said...

I'd love to buy this really I would. However they also say Lost it out...and that can't possibly be true.

Betty Lou said...

I'm hoping most of the viewers are getting as bored with the Gosselins as I am. I can believe Lost is out as well. I've watched every episode, but it's been so long since it was on that I've forgotten it existed.

L.Stash said...

Lost can't be out it topped Yahoos list of tv shows people were the most excited about returning.

I notice the Gosselins didn't make that list.

DeletingJ+K+8 said...

I was deleting from my DVR- way too many J+K+8 episodes still on there. I am not sure if I have the right episode but I think when they went to Sight and Sound, and they got home and then they were doing the couch interview Jon said "They were spent" ( I assuming because of so many activity in one day) Kate laughed. I though it was funny that they were using that word, and now they are being phrased with the same word by the D.C. article.

SKB516 said...

I think the problem will these TLC families is that the original intent of the shows (to give people an idea of what it's like to have a "different" type of family) is lost after the first season or so- right about the same time TLC starts sending them on loads of vacations & funding all sorts of other luxuries. This has happened to some extent with the Duggars and Roloffs as well as Kon & family. I think an occasional TLC-sponsored trip would be fine, but they overdo it with going from a family who seems to barely put food on the table to one that goes on lavish vacations every other week. I do adire that the Duggars seem to have a lot of respect for one another that is missing with Kon. And they do have at least some sort of income aside from the show, however it irks me that they preach about how awful TV is & yet they have their own TV show! And I'm sure they get a fat check from TLC just like Kon.

pinkdiamond611 said...

Believe me, if Kate could figure out a way to adopt that additional Korean baby she "wants" she would, only to outdo the Duggars and add more life to the gravy train.

nancy019 said...

It's about time...so she had 6 kids at once, tired of hearing her bitch and moan about it. You chose to have 'em, now deal with it and leave us alone.
I am done, done, done with these yahoos, kids are getting older, not so cute anymore. Whatever will Kate do once the gravy train derails?

DirtyDisher said...

In or out, you know what I've noticed lately? Jon is setting Kate up in every episode to look like an even bigger bitch. He sits there and takes her abuse in such a pointed way while barely smirking and nodding his head, looking directly at the camera. Some real evil is brewing there, under the surface, and it's calculated. I find it fascinating.

Chris said...

Gosh DirtyDisher, you just might get me watching again. I quit watching during their "working" vacation. I thought at the time that Yawn had something up his sleeve. I think he is planning to leave and take the kids. By setting Kate up he'll definately look like the better parent. Actually, I think he is the better parent. Not perfect, but better than Kate.

Irish-Gal said...

-I hope depressed children and smig parents are out, too!

Somewhereinoh said...

My local newspaper announced today the city's first baby to born in the new year, 2009. The article was limited in details as the parents are demanding the media respect their privacy and have declined any and all media interviews and refuse to allow photographs to be taken of their new born child. It is refreshing to read that there are parents out there that place the privacy of their own life and the protection of their new born child as priority over '15 minutes of fame' and the benefits that come along with.

That's because the Gosselins never went away.

amalficoast1 said...

I'm delighted to hear Gosselins are falling out of favor with media people. Their fifteen minutes should be up very shortly and when they are spent I will do a happy dance.
KON went too far exploiting and pimping their kids out for money. There was also backlash with Kate treating the boys so terribly. And it is easy to over expose and KON definitely has.

Go Duggars!

Lfwh said...

I noted that Chanel Sunglasses are out. Are those those "bug eye" glasses that all the celebs wear? The same style that Kate wears? LOL. Of course Kate's glasses wouldn't be real Chanel unless Chanel gave them as a freebie. Fortunately, that particular design house doesn't need someone low brow like Katie Irene to hawk their wares. LOL.

jon & kate is going to be out because people are getting bored of blogging about them ... let's talk about something new ... like how the duggers have 20 "mini-mom's" in the family and dress their younger children like amish kids. i don't agree that jon & kate are "exploiting" their children, but i do see the show on its way out ... but the duggers creep me out more so than kate's bad hair & makeup.

Im certain there are numerous blog sites out there in internet land devoted to discussing the Duggar family. When one comes to a blog site that is titled, "Gosselin's Without Pity', the topic of the blog site contents should be/is self explanatory.

DirtyDisher - I noticed that too. Kate tries hard to get Jon to react and all he does is 'I have nothing more to say'. I think it's great!!

Irish Gal, I know this was a typo so please don't think I am laughing at you. When I saw this it made me laugh out loud because even though "smig" is not a word it seems like the perfect description for KON.

Ok, I'll go seek therapeutic help now.

spoiledmom said...

Happy New Year to all!

I am soo glad to see that J&K are finally "OUT", as well as Kate's blase attitude of pimping her kids out is "spent".

With all the shows TLC is shoving down our throats with multiple families, Katie isn't in a class of her own anymore.
Oh wait, yes she is, she's "classless" .

This report couldn't have been released at a better time.. just in time for their housewarming party. My, what do you get to people on the out? (resume stationery?) I'll have to consult the list. LOL

I did the same thing after the marathon. LOL A waste of space on my DVR. I did, however, keep "gumgate" and for some odd reason, the 2 part Wedding Vow Renewal. Isn't it odd that on the trip to Utah, when Kate was soo sick she stayed inside for almost 2 days (as far as we know)..that when they finally arrived at the airport, Kate said to Jon (and Beth was standing there as well) "Next time we are going to Hawaii, we are going to get married again. To each other." Wonder if all of this was in the works back then, or if it was one of Kate's subliminal messages to "donate" them a trip, as they have been able to do everything else. I don't begrudge their traveling, I have traveled enough in my years. I find fault with how Kate goes about getting everything handed over to her, then acts so unappreciative during and after the fact. Maybe that is why they crammed all these trips into this last season, because someone saw how "spent" they were really becoming.

Better renew your nurse's license Kate!

I myself just laughed out loud at what you wrote! Hmm, "smig" can be a cross between big, as in big ego, and smug. That works.

I hate whoever decided to put three vowels next to eachother on the keyboard! ;)

This would be a nomination for "comment of the week" if we still had that feature. :)

Phoebe said...

A theater friend of mine once coined a phrase which I often think of when I see KON...and, unfortunately, the children as well;
when pronouncing the following term, be sure to over articulate the 't's:
Talent-Free.

The Duggars are creepy!
