Just more BS from Kate.

I especially loved the part where she said she regularly tells the kids " Look what Jesus provided us".

Yes, kids, look what Jesus provided us : trips to Maui, Utah, the OBX, Disney, Sesame Place, Sight n Sound, The National Zoo, The Pittsburgh Zoo. He is sooooo nice he also provided us with Crocs, Little Tykes toys, Juicy Juice, Tide to help with stain removal and a new home ! Yes, we are so very blessed.

Lucky said...

Can you imagine all those people who sent money to the family so they could buy food, clothing and other essentials to find out now in this article it went so Queen Kate could go to the spa?!

What a slap in the face!

Sounds like her PR team is working overtime. I sure hope that Kate is feeding them some soup.

Tangerine Tanya said...

I dont mean to offend anyone here but I dont understand some people when they say (Kate in particular)
that God "blessed" them with this and that. What makes the Gosselins so deserving when there are so many other families in need and go without? I guess that J/K think that they are so special that they are entitled. I just dont buy the God blessed me concept.

That Was Nice said...

That was nice, I honestly believe that was the real Kate speaking. I know some of you may not agree with me but I really do think she is grateful for all she has. And I think there is a lot of stuff we don't see, whether it be good or bad who knows?

AUNTYK.K. said...

This articule upset me, not so much because of what Kate says, but because of what she's teaching her children, and spreading to all the 'Kate" followers...It is so wrong! God is NOT about 'giving' to the Gosselin family ...this is not TRUE Christianity...I'll try to explain.....

I truly believe that anyone who takes Christianity seriously, (meaning they "live" what they speak about, and don't just use 'God' to answer questions), don't agree with what K/J are doing.

When your a Christian you don't ALTER your lifestyle to 'adjust' to some TV show.

You don't change the way you do things, like: 'grace' before meals; 'Bible readings at the table/bedtime'; having a 'quiet spot' to do your own 'devotions', etc.,... for a TV show.

You certainly don't constantly "put down others/or intimidate the ones you love"; hit, scream, or do the things Kate does WITHOUT apologizing, and asking for forgiveness. (I don't think I've ever seen Kate apologize.) You don't give explanations for your "wrongdoings", make "excuses" for bad behaviour, or always, (as is the case with Kate), blame someone else for your behaviour,(she's always blaming Jon for the way she behaved,or making excuses).

You attempt to "aim for" the 'fruits of the Holy Spirit'" in your lives. (Those being,"love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goddness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control")

AND, to aim for the two greatest commandments being: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart/mind/soul", and "To love your neighbour as yourself".

We, as Christians are not here to judge K/J, but are certainly here to help "protect" those who are 'professing to love/protect/etc' children and don't.

If K/J were REALLY living as Christians, you would see MORE of the above...you wouldn't be making excuses that TLC, "doesn't allow you to live as Christians". Their mannerisms would be "improving", their 'speaking to each other' would show more love and compassion.

Kate's non-verbal would be improving and you wouldn't be seeing constant arms crossed/negative comments towards her children, (esp. when it comes to playing--even recently she came outside to 'see' the playdoo--her body language was enough to 'kill any child's emotions', never mind her comments-such negative)..

And, most importantly, you wouldn't be stating, "God told you to pursue material things"...if anything God tells us: "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, wehre moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is , there your heart will be also. (Matthew 6:19)

This means, we shouldn't be aiming for material things, as when we die, that doesn't matter,,,what will matter is what we have done for others.

Storing 'treasures' up in 'heaven' means: doing unto others, what we would like 'others' to do unto us. For ex.: helping family/friends, asking for forgiveness and working through difficult situations, being kind to others in public situations, giving of 'material' items--(with K/J --giving away all the 'material things' they have received for FREE instead of 'yearly' garage sales and earning more money), opening your door to neighbours--(they certainly cannot do this with a huge gate/fense around their home, and much more).


Oh, if K/J were really, 'living the Christian life', we'd also see the children's behaviour imitating the 'fruits of the spirit", as what parents LIVE, is what children IMITATE. (we still see the children hit each other, we see rude behaviour, we see the way the children speak to each other, this would be 'improving' and we'd see the children asking for 'forgiveness' and saying 'sorry' if K/J were living this, "Christian" lifestyle).


LASTLY , most Christian's when they go to 'speak' at a church, do it for 'minimum' costs, or for FREE! This taking $25,000 per church engagement, (and love offerings), is a huge 'anger' spot for me! Never mind asking for the 'BEST' of everything...most are happy just to receive the 'basics'..there are so many families out there that would be CONTENT with food/bed/clothes...that's where this couple's needs should have STOPPED...once they received their 'remodeled' home, formula,clothes, beds, they should have stopped 'asking' for items...once Jon's Dad gave them money they shouldn't have asked anyone for any more...it just proves that they're NOT following God...but greed/evil is their motive...

GOD states, In 1 Timothy6:10:"For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil! Some people eager for money, have wondered from the faith and peirced themselves with many griefs."----I truly believe this is where Kate and Jon are right now!!


Yes, we see a lot of wonderful smiles with the children, and they are "adorable", as I love all children. But, being in front of the camera, for all the world to see, and filming some of their 'personal' aspects, is not what God intended for children.

This is just IMO. Thankyou.
I do 'love' the children, but don't think this is right 'idea' of God that K/J are giving them.

God is a loving/kind/gracious God who by the way isn't punishing children when they fall!!!!

This IMO!

Give me a Break! said...

That Was Nice said:

but I really do think she is grateful for all she has.

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

You mean all that she has been 'given' or you could say all that she has because she and Jon made the decision to film their childrens lives in front of America for $$$$$.

Give me a break!

Tami said...

She is inconsistent and a liar. Jon is a follower?? He is weak, but SHE is more of a follower! The Disney episode where she melts down outside the salon and begs him to hurry home comes to mind, her crying and begging him in the airport to lead because she wants to follow..so many instances where she is incapable of existing without Jon to take over everything! Think about it! Where does SHE drive all by herself with any of the kids? Nowhere!

Katemakesmesick said...

I agree 100% with Aunty K.K.

Kate is so self-centered that it's not even funny. She is not focused on God, she is focused on HERSELF. It's sick.

Tammy H. said...

Holy smokes! Was that the biggest bunch of crap anyone has ever read? How can continue to lie and lie and lie? And she thinks the reason people are negative towards her is because we know how real the show is..OMG! No, it's because of what you have done to your kids..you have used them for your own self gain. They are being exploited. You don't care as long as you get what you want. Kate is such a sad, sad person. I don't get it...
Yeah, Kate might be grateful for what she has now, but it's only because of the perks she has managed to receive because of the tups'. Nothing more or less.

ThreeFarmers said...

Kate uses "God's Will" as an excuse for taking any responsibility for their poor decision-making.

If it is God's will, then it can't be their fault.

I'm thinking that God isn't fond of being used in that way.

Jen said...

That article read to me like an email interview, where Kate (and her PR people) carefully crafted the answers and sent them in. I have never heard her speak that eloquently before. When I read the phrase "seasons of struggle," I almost laughed. The real Kate would say something like, "That time that was so horrendously horrendous."

WENDY said...

What a crock. I started to read the excerpt from the book, but the bit with folded 8 times note made my teeth ache. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

MsPeabody said...

AuntyK.K., Thank you, I really liked your comment about true religion and following God. You said it so beautifully.

Barb said...

I took the excerpt from the article in Today's Christian Woman of Multiple Blessings and made a word cloud.

Cindi said...

Remember when Kate blamed God the time when Collin tripped while getting off of the airplane and hit his head? She added that God had a way of punishing those who did wrong.Not the exact words but more or less.I wonder if Kate thought Collin was being punished when he had a impacted bowel while she ignored him while she was picking out beds. Oh and yes maybe she is blessed with new clothes and Jon with hair plugs. God must have been busy when Joel was feverish and vomiting.

MayDay said...

You have got to wonder why God only gives all theses things to Kate and Jon and to no one else? I think Kate truly believes that she is God's special person. It really does bother me how she blames God for everything she does.

Hannah A. Parent said...

It is ok to have perks in this life if you earn them honestly and share them by giving to others, but when you are the only one getting perks from God, there is something definitely wrong here.

Lana said...

Two things stood out to me in this article. First, she kept stressing her "type A" personality. I'm not sure she understands the true meaning of what a type A is. It isn't necessarily a positive thing to be a type A, especially in a household. It doesn't always mean you are a strong, powerful leader who demands respect. It sometimes means you are impatient and over-organized because of a lack of self esteem.

Second, while this is a touchy subject (so I'll be careful), in almost every article I've read about this family, they always always always stress that selective reduction was not an option. I personally think they stress this to overshadow the point that how they conceived their litter of children might be considered by some to be in sharp contrast to their Christian beliefs. It seems to be quite inconsistent that they discuss how they're good Christians who kept all of their babies -- but I've read (and I don't know how true it is) that they deliberately went against medical advice to have these babies in the first place. They are caught up in the "ends" but fail to discuss the "means," which I think is deceptive and done on purpose.

Casey and Smudge said...

Good grief, I am so embarrassed that Kate has been taken up as a role model for Christian women. Where I live (and it's ridiculously conservative), your relationship with God is personal and private. There's an unspoken realization that God is there for guidance and support, but it's the people in a community who do the work and make their own decisions based on what is in their hearts. There is value in good acts whether they are material or not. There's also a knowledge that God did not provide the paper towels, etc that landed on the doorstep, your neighbour did and you should thank them first! No one needs to advertise what scriptures they like either. Kate's all "see, we go to church, we say grace, we got the children Bibles, we have bedtime prayers" like she deserves a medal for covering the basics. Yet, as it has been pointed out many times, she's the most unforgiving, ungrateful, unkind, and FAKE person to slap on the label of Christian woman I've ever seen!

P.S. going to the spa and playing golf will not make you better parents, ever. Improving yourself on the outside (hair plugs, whiter teeth, better boobs) can't hide the moral decay on the inside. I also hate how she claims that raising 8 children close in age is some insurmountable task. So where's God, Kate? Are you forgetting to add grace, acceptance, and patience to your laundry list of prayers for vacations, beach houses, organic whatnot, and cash? Meanwhile, her foray into fertility drugs and multiple multiples was self-inflicted and brought by advances in medical science - not an act of God, thank you very much.

I suspect that Kate has been hatching this little plan since 19 November 1997 when the McCaughey's had their septuplets and were showered with vans, a house (with bedroom renos for the kids), braces, diapers, etc. She immediately went husband hunting and hurried into the fertility clinic. Then she plays up the religion aspect, gets on the church circuit, gets the freebies - the McCaugheys got new items, so shall Kate, and matchy-matchy no less! But she didn't heed the warnings of the Dionne's. I believe the McCaugheys have done a good job keeping their children from becoming a circus sideshow. Of course people were curious, the first surviving septuplets ever. Not to mention the backlash over the medical irresponsibility of carrying 7 in a womb built for one. It affected the thinking of an entire generation of women. Kate figured it was a good way to the material heaven on earth with fame and fortune, and I vowed never to use fertility drugs so I wouldn't have to make such a decision. Not judging those who do, just saying that the whole debate is changing the dynamic of twins and HOMs.

Anyways, that was longer than I anticipated and probably repetitive of what many have been saying all along, but it's frustrating to tolerate the garbage that Kate continues to spew. I really hope that even if TLC continues to air their "life", that church groups pull their support from these liars. I can totally see Kate pulling a forgiveness caper to get back into the good graces of the church and family, but I doubt she will ever say she's sorry.

Mary Sue said...

Interesting that Kate describes Jon as the "helper". Because, for people who claim to be as Christian as Jon and Kate claim, they really should know that the man is supposed to be the head of the household, and the woman is supposed to be "the helper".

Genesis 2:18 - Then the Lord God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him."

Onomatopoeia said...

BLECH...I just threw up a little in my mouth after reading this...

The last question pretty much did it for me. Folks, tonight when I say my rosary, I'm going to ask God when the show will end. If he tells me, I'll let everyone know.

SueM said...

So, Kate thanks Jesus for all that's been given to them....So That's why she's never said thanks to anyone else!! She thinks she gets a pass on the way she treat Aunt Jodi and other family and helpers because "Look what Jesus gave us"!!

bcd5 said...

The thing that stood out to me was the part where Kate said that they "teach their children gratitude." Really? Do they teach that when they are on one of their outings and the parents NEVER say thank you to anyone involved, or do they teach that when Jon is attempting to help Kate with something around the house or with the children and she is constantly barking "no do it this way" or "those are not the clothes I want the kids to wear!" I am far from a perfect parent, but I have learned that actions speak louder than words, especially with children. Children really do learn what they live, and Jon and Kate both need to realize that. And as far as Kate saying that TLC edits out a lot of their religious moments, their prayer, and their teaching the kids lessons about Jesus and the Bible, I call hooey on that as well. The Duggar's are an extremely religious family, and that is evident on their TLC show. There are many instances in their show that reflect Biblical teachings, prayer, and an overall religious day to day life. Kate needs to do her homework before she tells "horrendously horrendous" untruths in the public eye.

cheryl said...

After all the publicity - I can't imagine people coming out to see and hear her. It's the same stuff that's reinerated on each show.
Unbelievable. She hides behind her severe hairdo, God is her scapegoat, and claims all is well.
Sure!! What does her family think and say???

Not Any Christian Woman I Know said...

from the article, Kate speaking: "I definitely know there's a lot of ugliness out there about us. Honestly, I think a lot of it's because people squirm at how real we are."

Lady, there is nothing "REAL" about you !

From your fake teeth to your fake dinnertime prayer (at the beach house), you are one-of-a-kind. And I don't mean that in a good way!

Hope said...

I thought it was interesting how she continuously said that Jon was the only one with her through everything. She mentioned that several times, that no one understands their lifestyle. She's right. Who could?!?

Mark my words. Soon you will see a lot more in reference to God On the show. The PR people have now decided they will use God as the scape goat. It will be scripted more with God and religious references. I wouldn't be suprised if the Q&A coming up has a reference to "their" religious beliefs.

And another thing, why do all the pro Gosselin people always say "walk in their shoes" it is like they never had a original thought of their own? They make it sound as if there are no other large families?

RuthinVA said...

The post from annie:
The article said only Kate would be there. Very interesting. Has she always been doing this on her own or is this something different?
I thought it was the both of them.

Dunwoody Mom said...

While most viewers have caught on to the fraud perpetuated by Jon and Kate, there is a small part of the "religious" community that they can still "kon". Thus, this is where their PR people are putting their efforts and money into. However, in this economy and with the number of people that need to be fed, housed and given jobs, that churches are spending their money on Kate Gosselin sickens me.

iheartmyhubby said...

With all of the talk of "God's will" that Kate spews, isn't it ironic that she doesn't see what His will was when He determined she couldn't have children? What made her think that it was ok for fertility treatments that would circumvent His will?

Oh my .....!!!
I cannot believe this!
I am writing them right now, as soon as I've posted this message!

Please, ALL of you, email this 'retreat' show, or whatever you call it, and PLEASE ask them to "RESEARCH" this family throughly!
With a TON of emails, God-WIlling, they will reconsider!

It doesn't state when this is to occur, has it been 'taped' already or when is it to be done? ANyone have the answer?

I love these posts, thankyou so much to the 'editors' and to all of you who are helping to 'spread' the Word about this family!

And, I cannot remember who said this, but one person was speaking at the church, about K/J coming to their facility, and got 'engaged' in a conversation with another person...NEVER be afraid to SPEAK the TRUTH! Even in church, if I'm engaged in a conversation, and someone shares that they're 'enlighted' with the Gosselins, I would ask then, firmly but kindly, to 'Research this family" before you support them any further...then if they asked why...I'd then, in a calm manner, state: "because they are frauds'...AND, "because they are using God's name in vain" and that is so wrong!

A question: If it is true they recieve 25K for a church appearance and they are now charging $10. per person (with 500to 600 in attendance) who makes up the 18k deficient?

wramblinwreck said...

"when you are the only one getting perks from God, there is something definitely wrong here."

During this time of economic distress, with the highest unemployment in decades (7+%) and millions of families struggling, it seems the height of arrogance to flaunt all those perks from God because...what?...you have 8, EIGHT!, kids. How about all those families who are barely making it from day to day, the ones who are losing their homes due to the mortgage debacle, or just because of lost employment. God has ignored so many in distress, but singled out the Gosselins for his direct attention because they have 8, EIGHT! kids? What a twisted form of Christianity Kon is selling to the sheeple. It's certainly not what I was taught. Casey and Smudge describes the faith I learned, and our family lives, beautifully:

"Where I live ... your relationship with God is personal and private. There's an unspoken realization that God is there for guidance and support, but it's the people in a community who do the work and make their own decisions based on what is in their hearts. There is value in good acts whether they are material or not. There's also a knowledge that God did not provide the paper towels, etc that landed on the doorstep, your neighbour did and you should thank them first! No one needs to advertise what scriptures they like either."

Shame on this magazine for allowing Kon and their PR machine to use their publication to shill their scam to CW readers.

Get a clue said...

As far as the payment from the churches, some of the engagements were booked before they hired the agent so I'd expect Jon and Kate would have to honor the arrangements with them. Only the bookings made with the agent will have the $25K fee attached.

kate is a cocky bitch said...

The Queen gets a "daily email devo" and all of a sudden she thinks she's Mother Teresa

Dear Prudence said...

Every time I read something about how the younger children were conceived, I think to myself "the lady doth protest too much."

Every time we are reminded "we only wanted one!" and that they were (gasp!) so shocked to be having more.

Bull crap.

I think they both knew, at the very least, Kate knew, exactly what was going to happen, she was going to have way more than one kid with that pregnancy.

I don't believe for one second that she didn't know there was a risk. The dates don't add up.

But she mentions it in practically every interview, and it's been almost 5 years. At first I thought it was for the "woe is me" aspect of it, but now I think it's because they are hiding the fact that they knew they were going to end up with HOM.

Besides all that, how demeaning is it to the children, when they will someday read how "easy" it was with just two? And that because of them, J&K were thrown into "chaos."

Nice.

And love how she pointed out Jon is the only one that "gets" her. She's justifying to herself why she is all alone in the fake kingdom she created.

I have a feeling that this is all building up to a huge downfall for them. Something has to give sooner or later, and I think it's going to be sooner.

I just don't see how they are going to explain that mansion to all their loyal viewers. You can only say "God provides" so much before people are like, hey, when is He going to provide ME with that stuff?

The gig is up. Close to it. Mark my words. It's all going to come crashing down around them. God help those kids.

I wonder about this, as quite a while ago there was a 'blog' about how churches who were booked prior to their agent being hired, had to be cancelled...there was even a letter posted to this effect.
So, I doubt very much that they were still honouring the 'previous' fee...I wish i knew how to locate that 'letter'.
But, the fee is $25,000. PLUS, first class air fare, PLUS first class accommodations!

JenTru said...

My comment to the article:

This woman and her husband display lots of Christian values. Bad ones. Greed, sloth, lust, gluttony, pride, wrath and envy. I see all of the seven deadly sins represented in this show. This show is hurting those kids, in a big way, but as long as their parents can afford their pampered new lifestyle, including their new 1.3 million home, what do they care? I rarely see any parenting going on on this show, and especially not from Kate. She would rather have someone else do it. I feel like she sees the lids as little paychecks runnign around. While I am sure she loves her kids and has the occasionaly "real" moment with them, all I see from the show is representation of the seven deadly sins. Those poor kids. I can't believe Kate thinks that the xontroversy is because of the "realness" of the show! No, Kate. Real people do not get to vacation all over the country on a whim and get paid thousands of dollars to have cameras invade their children's lives. Give me a break.

Get a clue said...

They canceled some of the church engagements previously booked - not all of them. I'm betting they canceled the ones that they could replace with a higher paying engagement or where they thought they wouldn't get as much money as they wanted.

Tazznum1 said...

I wonder who Kon is going to leave the kids to if they pass on. The producer or the boom mic operator?

These are the only people the kids really know besides Kon at this point.

RuthinVA said...

I bet those churches have buyer remorse when they realize they didn't get $18000.00 worth of inspiration.

Hi Ruth,

Thank you for writing and for your comments. I will pass them along to the appropriate person.

Interesting? Well, not to me, as it seems the same old crap we've always heard from her mouth. Just because you repeat something over and over, doesn't make it true.

Many, many of us have lots of kids. Lots of people have multiples. Few of us would suck the life out of those children and their husband and their Christianity for money.

Moons in Leo said...

Wow.

At least the article began with one made up word ~ realness. Isn't it reality, Kate? Not that you would know what it is anyway.

Look what Jesus gave us!

Oh Lordy be! I think I want to get bumper stickers made up with that phrase.

I hope they had a huge crock available for all of Kate's Krap.

seashell said...

JenTru, that was an awesome post.

Seeing Kate in these types of publications makes me more upset than listening to her lies on tv or other interviews.

Kate's deception and ego know no bounds. Nothing is beneath her when it comes to putting herself on that pedestal. It's sickening, really.

Dor said...

The ONLY reason why Kate is really playing the God card is her inner guilt. I know it takes a conscience to have guilt, but she knows her party is about to end and she is playing the God card to keep the flock following. I being a Christian know that gossiping is sinning, however it is my opinion that these two frauds will get what they deserve in the end. Good always prevails over evil. A spa visit once a month on someone else's dollar is wrong. These good people of the church are unfortunately blinded by the evil lies that Kon delivers and they feel bad for them and donate their precious dollars. These are God loving people who in this day with the economy likely don't have the money for themselves and then she turns around and admits that she does this .....monthly! It takes balls, I'll give her that.Someday Jon and Kate will have no friends, family or "job". They will have to try and find a job in the real world and do it just like we all do on a daily basis. This money train will not last forever - it just won't. She will blame everyone else but herself, but on that day, God will give her a message - WAKE UP AND GET A LIFE!

Ok---my .02

What was interesting to me was that Kate is doing her church "socials" by herself without Jon. I was wondering if this was typical. He did not show up at the last one and cancelled at the last minute. I think this was under the general section.

RuthinVA said...

I think the only reason Kate is playing the God card is it is the ace the PR people have be saving.

Aunty KK,

After reading your post I immediately sent an e-mail to the address given.

I hope if they get enough e-mails they'll reconsider their decision to have Kate speak!

Three Strikes Your Out said...

"Someday Jon and Kate will have no friends, family or "job"."

~~~~~~~~~~~
Strike one (no friends), strike two (no family)..... waiting for strike three (no "job") and then you Gosselins are OUT of here! :)

I would just like to comment on some of Kate's ridiculous statements in this article. I know I should look on the bright side and be happy I didn't have to hear her say "um" after every other word.

When Kate's obstetrician suggested selective reduction, both Kate and Jon immediately rejected the idea. "Who would live and who would die was not a decision that rested in our hands," Kate explains.

Au contraire, dear Kate. You certainly did determine who would live by stimulating your follicles beyond human ability

Sometimes I wonder why it doesn't bother me that the cameras capture everything we say and do.

Maybe because you're getting paid a small fortune for them to be there? Oh and don't look now, but your older girls don't like it. It bothers them, but that's not important since they're not you.

But Jon and I are more determined than ever that we're in this together. We've told our kids many times that we're always going to be a family. There are no other options.

Yeah, keep telling yourself that, dearie. There's a big option called D-I-V-O-R-C-E.

Maggy said...

Ahh Kate and her pick and choose Christianity.

"from the article, Kate speaking: "I definitely know there's a lot of ugliness out there about us. Honestly, I think a lot of it's because people squirm at how real we are."

Lady, there is nothing "REAL" about you ! "

I've got to say, that when I read this I actually got angry. I never treat my husband or kids the way she does. I actually interact with my kids, I never take pics of them on the potty - I've never taken a poop picture. Jeesh.

One of the things that gets my goat about Christians is that they are so darn scared to call someone out on their crap. I don't remember anywhere in the gospel where Jesus tip-toed around people who were blatantly doing wrong in the name of the Lord (the pharaisees).

Pfft.

Church Lady said...

Maybe thats why Kate keeps inserting God into her answers. She knows it hard for her detractors to attack her when she has "God" directing her every move.

See if your against Kate then you must be against God.....

Virginia said...

Jesus wasn't, according to the Bible, one who played the God card too much himself, if you'll remember. Herod said to him (paraphrasing) "So you are the son of God", and Jesus responded "That's who you say I am".

These Kon artists have only one thing to do with the faith. Kate's estranged father is apparently a minister and so she learned the lingo, she learned how to make people dig deep to contribue and how to work that system. She's good at it and she's taught little Jonny to do the same. I have some hope for Jon, but it is fading fast.

Travis Noodle said...

I find it extremely offensive when J&K use Christianity to market their offensive show to another segment of society.

I remember in one episode J&K were talking about how the tups middle names were from the fruit of the spirit. Love, Joy, Peace, etc.

I feel sad that the Christian community, churches, magazines, the 700 Club, and whatever are falling for the Jon and Kate con job. It's sad.

Being "real" is not an excuse for Kate's bad behavior.

Who is holding Kate accountable???Obviously nobody!

Exactly. I wonder what her father thinks now. I do not know anyhting about her parents (other than what i have read here and some news articles) but you have to feel for them.

quintsmom said...

Kate is beyond disgusting to me. We have ten children. Yes, TEN. So Kate grow up and deal. Quit blaming God. He didn't force you into a fertility clinic. He gave you free will to make your own decisions and you need to own up to them along with their results. You chose treatments that have known risks of multiples, you chose to proceed, and then you and Jon chose to exploit your kids on TV instead of supporting them as you should.

I, too, have help, but my husband's real job pays for it. Our kids have never been on TV and never have and never will be interviewed or made a spectacle of. I don't lie about having a live-in housekeeper or gardening service. Unlike you all of our relatives with one exception are still in our lives. She's a truly toxic person much like you. Everything and everyone is supposed to bow down and worship to her struggles. I refuse and so we see her only during entire family gatherings and I try to keep my distance.

And would this woman quit handing out cooking, organizing, and parenting advice? She's a true rookie and anyone with some real experience recognizes that in a minute.

Please Pick a Name said...

to quote Kate:
"I think a lot of it's because people squirm at how real we are."

Oh Please..I have never seen such a phoney..fake person in my life. She calls upon God when its for show...she doesnt go to Church on a regular basis nor do the children..she doesnt teach Bible or Sunday Classes

Kate calls upon God cause she knows that is where the $ is..from the Churches

She is so patheitc..and so is Jon

their Judgement Day is coming..and it wont be pretty.

I'm going to contact TLC to find out which one of their executives God called to start the ball rolling on the t.v show for the Gosselins.LOL

going to the spa and playing golf will not make you better parents, ever. Improving yourself on the outside (hair plugs, whiter teeth, better boobs) can't hide the moral decay on the inside.

GREAT comment.

BostonBean said...

They are putting the last nails in the coffin of that show. Believe me when I tell you this.
You will notice online a decided drop in the people who would fight to defend them.
They are just conducting themselves in the wrong, wrong way. And their PR team isn't even asute enough to save them.

BostonBean said...

Yes, we have caught her in so many lies. Anyone with half a brain would be aware that when you say something on tape, it can be compared later.
She seems to just rely on lying to get by. She really, really needs to straighten out her mind.

nj2az07 said...

Well said nomorekon! I think that's the best description of Christian beliefs as far as KON is concerned. Well done!

wildflowers said...

Again...poor children. They will forever know that they weren't all truly wanted. If KON just wanted one or two the last time around, there are 4 or 5 of the tups that weren't wanted. What a wonderful secure feeling! Even if that were true, I would never, ever say that out loud, much less on tape.

konspiracytheory said...

Kate:
"But we survived that first year. And then the second one. And then each year after that. Even though the issues have changed, it's never gotten easier."

And yet in the same interview she says she goes to the spa monthly and Jon has taken up golf. Sounds like things have gotten a good bit easier to me!

CJ said...

You know I'm 52 years old and have never been to a spa.

Must be nice to be Queen!

MichelleS said...

What in the h e double hockey sticks kind of crap is Kate shoveling now????????
She is considered a today's christian woman?? Its funny i have not heard much words about God and their faith in the past years of episodes. But she goes all out in this magazine and saying that she wishes their faith and beliefs etc were shown more but its the shows decision to edit how they want??
Sounds also like it was just more damage control. It was just more garbage uttered out of her mouth. I want to say more but i dont have time..plus most of the comments here speak my mind..

Shame, Shame, Shame said...

I don't think TLC "edits" their faith out. Look at the Duggars or any of the other shows that are on! They all proclaim their faith ON THEIR shows with no problem. The Gosselins pick and choose when it is convenient for them to speak the Lord's name.

Shame on them.

Carolina said...

You know what, I really didn't hate her in that article. I just... can't snark it for some reason. Probably because they didn't dwell on the atrocity that is the show, and it was just a mom talking about her hectic life.

Carolina said...

... and apparently I missed something in the article, so I'll reread it again. People are truly outraged at it. :(

pinkdiamond611 said...

Travis Noodle asked, "Who is holding Kate accountable"?

Well there are two biggies, first there is always judgement day, as many have mentioned. But then there is always the IRS. Nobody escapes the IRS.;-)

Sophia said...

It's odd to hear Kate's interviews with these Christian outlets. She seems adament in how God is involved in her daily life. Now we've all seen how passionate Kate gets about dirt, stains, anything Jon does/says that she doesn't agree with, etc. Yet in so many interviews she simply states that TLC chooses to edit their religion how they will. And she would like them to show more of it on the show but understands that they don't. So it seems as though Kate is insistent/okay that they show her reaction to the kids getting messy and her meltdowns but not so much about her religious practices. I guess all of her many claims that the show is her real life aren't without a religious disclaimer.

Janet said...

One of the paragraphs that stuck out to me in this article is when Kate is saying how "Cara and Mady got Bibles recently. It's amazing to watch them discover verses for themselves. Mady will read something and say 'oh that's a good verse. I'll ask 'what does that mean?' She'll explain it and I'll be so moved that she totally gets it".

I couldn't help but wonder that if somehow Mady were to read this article, she would say "this didn't happen" or "I never said anything like that!", in much the same way where Kate tried to say how Mady was excited to be her maid of honor & Mady spoke out about that. I think that Kate is trying to make it look like she is having this close bonding time with the twins and throwing the Bible in for good measure.

However, on the FLIP coin, I would like to THINK and HOPE that perhaps this conversation really DID take place and Mady is encouraged by what she reads in the Bible and realize she is not all alone.

And who knows? Maybe Mady will discover all the verses about money being the root of all evil, etc and show THOSE scriptures to Kate and tell her mom what she thinks THOSE scriptures mean to her!

Tangerine Tanya said...
I dont mean to offend anyone here but I dont understand some people when they say (Kate in particular)
that God "blessed" them with this and that. What makes the Gosselins so deserving when there are so many other families in need and go without? I guess that J/K think that they are so special that they are entitled. I just dont buy the God blessed me concept.

1/11/2009 7:02 PM

ITA.
People who claim being blessed has always rubbed me the wrong way. To me it smacks of 'nanny-nanny poo poo' look what we have and you don't. If something good happens to me I atribute it to hard work or sheer luck.

Just more BS from Kate.

I especially loved the part where she said she regularly tells the kids " Look what Jesus provided us"........

1/11/2009 6:47 PM

Gee thanks Kate. Now I know who to thank for:
Being molested as a child and providing me with years of terror.
Having my precious husband die in my arms from cancer.That was the best thing you provided for me (NOT).
Losing his death benefit when Lucent Technologies decided to stop it without notification to employees. It was so nice being provided with additional STRESS and almost losing the house.
Having our nation's economy fail big time along with our savings, massive job losses, lack of healthcare coverage etc.
I could go on and on as we all can and am sorry to rant but Kate Gosselin knows not of what she speaks and TOTALLY PISSES ME OFF!

Syl said...

IMO KON treats their alleged faith as another cost of doing business.
Just another column in their ledger.
Just another item to check off on their ‘to do’ list.
It’s as simple as that.

********************

IMO this is another example of Kate not taking responsibility for her own actions and decisions. Its TLC/Figure 8's decision on why their faith is not aired more. Not true. Look at LPBW & Duggers; they don't appear to be edited in their faith. Just another lie from Kate.

Cindi said...

Ummm Pssst Kate,

Do ya think that you could loan me your Jesus for a bit? My car croke down the day before Christmas and I have to walk 2 miles in the cold and dark to catch the bus to take me another 45 miles to be there @ 7:00 a.m....Please Kate?

Travis Noodle said...

This is faith...

Faith is not questioning the bad circumstances around you but believing that God has a plan for you.

Faith is believing that God loves you and wants the best for you during extremely tough and painful times.

Yes, the Gosselins did get lucky but what about the future? What happens when some of their kids develop problems due to J&K's dysfunctional treatment of them?

There are seasons for everything, good and bad. Maybe after the show is over and the kids grow up, J&K's chickens will come home to roost and they will need to amends.

Tigerfan said...

In the article:
Kate says she believes that alot of the 'ugliness' out there about the reality show is because, 'it makes them squirm how real we are'. The 'ugliness' that I feel for Jon & Kate has nothing to do with how 'real' they are, its the EXPLOITATION of their children that makes me squirm!

Polly said...

Thank you, Jesus, for the ability to roll my eyes and not have them blinded to those out and out LIES! Wow, just repeat over and over God's plan, look at what Jesus gave us and the churches will lap it up. How easy it is to lead even the church leaders into this deception. Not that it's news that many Christians are easy targets for scams such as PTLO and other televangelist that have emptied out grammies bank account with stories that this is what God would want them to do. A good person would send in all their nest egg to help pay for their ticket into the eternal life.
So those churches that place Katie Irene on a pedestal for the other women in the church will end up with many unhappy husbands and children when they get the justification to be greedy, emasculating and it's fine to demean and exploit your children. Oh, and btw help yourself to some IUI treatments and see if you too can land a TV show and claim that you are blessed above all others.
Vomitous.

Jon and Kate are here in Utah today and Jon was on our evening news. He told us once again that the show is their life and the life is their show. He says that Kate really is "laid back" in real life. The show just makes it look like she is high strung.


Kate says: all the ugliness is from all the "realness"

Jon says: the show is edited to portray Kate as high strung when she really isn't.

Evidently, KON are having a hard time keeping track of their lies.

C J said...

Just wondering... If God and or Jesus is responsible for all the wonderful things that happen to the Gosselins... Why, oh why, do they need a PR team?

Jen said...

Hi everyone,

As a publicist, I thought I should weigh in. Unless you hear Kate actually say something on the tv or radio, she did not say it. I mean, every interview you read has been written by her publicist.

Sure, Kate may get approval in what gets set to the reporter, but she'll likely look at the answers after her publicist has written them, not come up with the answers on her own. Or, on the off chance that she does answer her own questions, her publicist will tweak her answers, crafting the image she wants the reporter to print.

However, I don't know why any publicist would want a woman talking about talking money that was "sent to her" to use for spa appointments; maybe if they allow that she takes a break from the kids, it seems more "real."

SchaedenKON said...

Dear God,
If the TV production schedule is in your hands, would you speed along the next season of "Mad Men"?It's a fictional show that doesn't involve eight children and their whiny parents. Please end production of Jon and Kate plus 8, it is the prayer of many that the eight children live a normal life.Thanks.Amen.

TheOtherAshley said...

I really liked the very beginning of the article when it talks about how all of the volunteers & nurses "invaded" their home to help with the sextuplets.
How rude can they be?! These people took time out of their lives (I'm sure they could have found something better to do with it!) to HELP you, on a volunteer basis!
These two are the most ungrateful people ever. All they do on their show is complain about everything. I feel so sorry for the people that did "invade" the Gosselin's house, thinking they were doing a good deed. Can you imagine if you were one of the helpers and you read that??

I not only feel bad for the volunteers but it makes me leery of offering my assistance to other parents of HOM. If they think that I'm giving up time I could spend on my favorite activities or time I could use to assist in some other capacity like assist at NICU or the nursing home just to "pester" them ... then eh, any HOM moms best have a lot of friends and family already because the constant complaints from Kate and Jon about the hardship of having volunteers may not only turn me off but many other people. It's not like I force feed those people the fertility treatments or prevented then from doing a reduction and if the thanks you get is your a bother and inconvenience ... then why do it?

Kate is such a hypocrite. How can she claim to be a christian woman who believes in God and yet do what she does. This may be old stuff but I need to go over this to make my point. When T.L.C. offered her sister in law Aunt Jodi money/contract to do what she was already doing Kate loudly objected. I cant believe this woman. I would have gladly wanted someone who donated their time not to mention their love to have a piece of the pie. Let alone that it was her family? Then later on Kate lies through her teeth and says "It is better to give then to recieve" She is a greedy and rude human being.

MaryD said...

God: According to Kate you are the one who decided the Gosselins should be on TV and allowing the exploitation of the children. She has now told us in her interview that she doesn't know when the show will end and we should ask you.

So ............. I am now doing as she suggested and asking you when the show will end.

Are you there? Helloooooooo???

MsPeabody said...

I just wanted to comment about the sheeple always claiming those who speak the truth out about J/K that we are judging them and that we shouldn't. What I have to say to people who say this to us is this, Jesus told us to judge bad fruit from good fruit because He didn't want us to be led astray or following anyone who is a wolf in sheeps clothing. It is so silly to blindly follow anyone portraying themselves as a Christian leader w/out examining their fruit, whether it is of God or not. To follow blindly, might just end you up in the ditch or worse. You who say "I don't judge, blah, blah, blah...", keep patting yourselves on the back because I'm quite sure the Lord isn't. Where is the wisdom in following people who can't even manage to follow God's own command to love others as one's own self? And they make no pretense in their actions but are bold to say, "we are showing you the real us." IMO, just sounds like what Kate and Jon portray and say is a mockery and insulting to those that are struggling, whom God also loves. I agree with other poster's who have said they don't believe God picked this couple out in some special way to bless them with all they have acquired, for the God I know doesn't advocate greed. He teaches humility, thankfulness, contentment, etc.., all the good fruit you rarely, if ever see displayed by this couple. Wake up Sheeple! Stop blindly following this couple, open your eyes and take a honest look at what they say and do. The Truth will set you free!

There are many Christians speaking out concerning the fraud J/K are portraying. I am one and I've read many comments from others. What I can't understand is Christian leaders allowing these two into their churches. Many claim they are not their judge, that is scary that some would blindly follow anyone claiming to be Christian. They better start looking at the fruit the tree is bearing!

thecloserfan said...

Kate says 'Friends, family, neighbors—nobody understands our strange life. Jon's the only one who gets it. He's in my corner. And that's so wonderful.'

So it's their friends fault that they're estranged from J&K?
And it's their families fault that they're estranged from J&K?
I doubt that the neighbors care one way or another.

Dear Kate:

The reason why friends, family and neighbors won't talk to you is because you're greedy and narcissistic..and your husband is a fruit loop.

I guess God works in mysterious ways...

PR said...

AUNTYK.K. said...
This articule upset me, not so much because of what Kate says, but because of what she's teaching her children, and spreading to all the 'Kate" followers...It is so wrong! God is NOT about 'giving' to the Gosselin family ...this is not TRUE Christianity...I'll try to explain.....

I truly believe that anyone who takes Christianity seriously, (meaning they "live" what they speak about, and don't just use 'God' to answer questions), don't agree with what K/J are doing.

When your a Christian you don't ALTER your lifestyle to 'adjust' to some TV show.

You don't change the way you do things, like: 'grace' before meals; 'Bible readings at the table/bedtime'; having a 'quiet spot' to do your own 'devotions', etc.,... for a TV show.

You certainly don't constantly "put down others/or intimidate the ones you love"; hit, scream, or do the things Kate does WITHOUT apologizing, and asking for forgiveness. (I don't think I've ever seen Kate apologize.) You don't give explanations for your "wrongdoings", make "excuses" for bad behaviour, or always, (as is the case with Kate), blame someone else for your behaviour,(she's always blaming Jon for the way she behaved,or making excuses).

You attempt to "aim for" the 'fruits of the Holy Spirit'" in your lives. (Those being,"love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goddness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control")

AND, to aim for the two greatest commandments being: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart/mind/soul", and "To love your neighbour as yourself".

We, as Christians are not here to judge K/J, but are certainly here to help "protect" those who are 'professing to love/protect/etc' children and don't.

If K/J were REALLY living as Christians, you would see MORE of the above...you wouldn't be making excuses that TLC, "doesn't allow you to live as Christians". Their mannerisms would be "improving", their 'speaking to each other' would show more love and compassion.

Kate's non-verbal would be improving and you wouldn't be seeing constant arms crossed/negative comments towards her children, (esp. when it comes to playing--even recently she came outside to 'see' the playdoo--her body language was enough to 'kill any child's emotions', never mind her comments-such negative)..

And, most importantly, you wouldn't be stating, "God told you to pursue material things"...if anything God tells us: "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, wehre moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is , there your heart will be also. (Matthew 6:19)

This means, we shouldn't be aiming for material things, as when we die, that doesn't matter,,,what will matter is what we have done for others.

Storing 'treasures' up in 'heaven' means: doing unto others, what we would like 'others' to do unto us. For ex.: helping family/friends, asking for forgiveness and working through difficult situations, being kind to others in public situations, giving of 'material' items--(with K/J --giving away all the 'material things' they have received for FREE instead of 'yearly' garage sales and earning more money), opening your door to neighbours--(they certainly cannot do this with a huge gate/fense around their home, and much more).


Oh, if K/J were really, 'living the Christian life', we'd also see the children's behaviour imitating the 'fruits of the spirit", as what parents LIVE, is what children IMITATE. (we still see the children hit each other, we see rude behaviour, we see the way the children speak to each other, this would be 'improving' and we'd see the children asking for 'forgiveness' and saying 'sorry' if K/J were living this, "Christian" lifestyle).


LASTLY , most Christian's when they go to 'speak' at a church, do it for 'minimum' costs, or for FREE! This taking $25,000 per church engagement, (and love offerings), is a huge 'anger' spot for me! Never mind asking for the 'BEST' of everything...most are happy just to receive the 'basics'..there are so many families out there that would be CONTENT with food/bed/clothes...that's where this couple's needs should have STOPPED...once they received their 'remodeled' home, formula,clothes, beds, they should have stopped 'asking' for items...once Jon's Dad gave them money they shouldn't have asked anyone for any more...it just proves that they're NOT following God...but greed/evil is their motive...

GOD states, In 1 Timothy6:10:"For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil! Some people eager for money, have wondered from the faith and peirced themselves with many griefs."----I truly believe this is where Kate and Jon are right now!!


Yes, we see a lot of wonderful smiles with the children, and they are "adorable", as I love all children. But, being in front of the camera, for all the world to see, and filming some of their 'personal' aspects, is not what God intended for children.

This is just IMO. Thankyou.
I do 'love' the children, but don't think this is right 'idea' of God that K/J are giving them.

God is a loving/kind/gracious God who by the way isn't punishing children when they fall!!!!

This IMO!

tiredofKON said...

This was taken from that Jon's interview blog and I thought it was hilarious!



Jesus loves us... the people love us... they love the kids... I always turn to God... I just have to let God be in control... Pffffffft!

I guess 'Jesus' is rewarding them because she is advertising him and him sending "donations", "gifts", and "love offerings" from strangers is his way of paying the Gosselin's for the free 'Jesus will provide' advertising.

I often pray to God to help keep my husband who is an Active Duty United Stated Infantry Marine safe- to always provide "just enough" for both of us to make it day by day. I ask that my husband will be able to spend our One Year Wedding Anniversary with me and not in the field preparing to deploy again just before my birthday but I know God is busy helping the Gosselins. Perhaps I need to start praying to a different God and ask for the things we "need".

_____________


Dear (Kate's) God who always provides,

I have had such a rough day dealing with my icky husband who works endless nights and often spends MONTHS away from home to protect this country so other people can "afford" lavish vacations for ten when that they so desperately NEED because people LOVE THEM. We are a little older than Jon and Kate when they first got married, do not have any kids yet, but we DO have one dog so you NEED to send people to love us and give us a $1.3 million dollar home and another vacation home when we feel like snowboarding. You NEED to send TLC to record our lives so people can see our "realness". You NEED to send some sheeple's my way to make anonymous donations to contribute to my daily spa treatments but please do not make them come too close to my doorsteps as I do not want to be bothered by them or even risk having them taped on film for fear that they might have to get compensated for their appearance. Luckily, my husband does not need hair plugs yet but I know that that too, you will provide. I know you are in control so please control the sheeple and herd their bank accounts our way because you ALL love us and you will provide...

AMEN.

Also, in that Today's Christian Woman article, Kate states:

"It's just all about letting God be in control and trusting his plan for our lives. Besides, what we think is great isn't always his plan. And at this point in my life, I don't want to do anything that's outside his plan, even if that means giving up something I really want or love. Because if it's not his plan, I know he has something better."

Oh please Kate. You did not listen to God.. I am religious and I belive in a giving and forgiving God and I honestly believe if God did not want you to have kids, it was his plan. Im not saying your kids are a mistake or are not wanted because they are innocent in all of this but knowing damn well you were aware of the chances of having more than just one baby WAS "going out of His plans" and you still had to try to control it didn't you!? Geez, you just love being in control you Type-A personality you... even trying to control God's plans.

SHAME ON YOU.

And their website is SIXgosselins.com... that must make the twins' feel SOOOOOO special.

Scramble the letters K-A-T-E around and you will get TAKE... What a perfect fitting name.

I know that was rather long but that was only .2% of what I would like to tell her in case she ever comes accross this. The rest is yet to come. LOL.

P.s. I hope no one was offended as I AM religious but seriously... God only loves the Gosselins?! PLEASE!

I can just imagine the tups in school saying, "look what Jesus gave us." and their classmates asking their parents, "How come Jesus doesn't give us anything."

What an ignorant thing to tell a child.

Yes, kids, look what Jesus provided us : trips to Maui, Utah, the OBX, Disney, Sesame Place, Sight n Sound, The National Zoo, The Pittsburgh Zoo. He is sooooo nice he also provided us with Crocs, Little Tykes toys, Juicy Juice, Tide to help with stain removal and a new home ! Yes, we are so very blessed.

Gee, how do I get in contact with this generous benefactor? Does he take calls or is it better to write? I'm just a lowly commoner -do you think he'd even speak to me? I don't have a direct, dedicated phone line to him like KON.

Do these people even have a clue as to how stupid they sound???
It just gets worse and worse. If I were their PR team I would cut loose and run. KON certainly does not make them (PR team) look good.

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

KON are too stupid to realize how stupid they sound.

Like I just posted in another thread: let them keep talking, they are only digging deeper graves for themselves. Their PR team can't be making enough money to keep up with these losers - they must be constantly running around trying to put out the fires that KON create with their behavior and lies.
