Thanks for the link! I hope they answer (or Larry asks, Im sure Kate wont give a real answer) the tough questions that never seem to get through to the Viewers O&A.

ROFL said...

Kate is a media whore who is overreacting to the CA mother who just gave birth to 8 babies before actually knowing or seeing a single fact about the situation in order to promote herself and her show.

When the "real" mother speaks I will listen and make my own judgements I don't need Kate to tell me what to think or how to raise my children, thank you!

Denise said...

Kate, you think you have advice to give other HOM families and yet you ignored the most famous Dionne quints when they said "Multiple births should not be confused with entertainment, nor should they be an opportunity to sell products." Why? Your children look miserable, don't you think it's time to stop selling them?

Sent to Larry King. Bet he schmoozes and asks her nothing tough.

tmc said...

Here is the question I submitted:

Exactly how much money have you earned from your "Love Offerings" and from selling "photographs" of your children?

phillippa said...

Thanks so much for letting us know! I set both my DVRs for the epi tonight and Larry King.

Anonymous said...

Kate, as your show has evolved into free trips, toys, clothes and now a house, do you think your show might have indirectly inspired this woman to have 8 kids in addition to her other 6?

Vicki said...

I do not expect Larry King ask Kate any tough questions. The
hired PR firm no doubt has given
Larry's Producers lists of ok'd
questions/subjects. This whole
saga of J&K just goes on and on.
Too bad the Children get drug around with them.

Mikemom said...

Lets see, Kate was in Philly on Thurs, then she was at Willow Creek Church in Barrington, Il all weekend as part of a series Families at their best, I am not kidding on that one. Now she is in New York on the Larry King Show. No wonder Mady likes Daddy better she is never home anymore.

Anonymomma said...

I sent in a question:

MomOf8InPA,

Kate, you say you were hospitalized with hyperstimulated ovaries 5 weeks prior to finding out you were pregnant with the sextuplets. Did your doctor warn you that having intercourse at that time would result in a high order multiple birth?


Ya think they'll ask her that???

lisak said...

My question I sent to Larry King was..
In a time when people are losing their homes and jobs, why do you think you deserve a house that is obviously to big for you?

honeyhush said...

Kate is joining in with her point of view? Point of view about what? How to get as much as you can out of the "system"? Oh, this is shameful.

I'm afraid this mother of octuplets went down the road she did because of Kate. She wanted the free gifts, free trips, etc., because she knew she could never do it on her own! This is nothing to be proud of. See what Kate has done? She has women bringing children into the world that they don't even want! They want riches! This is so disgusting. I sure hope she's proud!

Carrie said...

I went to Larry website where you can post questions. I was rather shocked. Sheeple are submitting the usual stupid sheeple questions. I think the interview is tighly controlled by KON's PR henchmen. Too bad - I thought Larry was above that.

Kateneedshelp said...

"Lets see, Kate was in Philly on Thurs, then she was at Willow Creek Church in Barrington, Il all weekend as part of a series Families at their best, I am not kidding on that one. Now she is in New York on the Larry King Show. "

I'm pretty sure Larry is in LA, but anyway, Kate is in Oak Brook Illinois for book signing tomorrow, the next day she's in Indiana for a Home Show and next week she's in NY for another book signing. How can she sell herself as a stay at home Mom....she's a stay away from home Mom. No wonder Mady likes Jon more. She doesn't even know her mother. Sad, sad, sad!

Larry's show is actually out of LA. But they may be doing a satellite hookup from Philadelphia or NYC.

K.Barrett said...

Wow, not only has Kate messed up her own family, now she's messing up families of people she doesn't even know. People want a lifestyle like hers and they think popping out a slew of kids at once is the answer. I hope Larry calls her on it.

lisa k said...

I just recieved an e-mail from Larry King Live and it said Thank You for your submitted question. Questions may be edited for production purposes.

timetogokon said...

With all due respect Mr. King,

There is absolutely no advice that I would take from Kate or Jon Gosselin.

This new mom of 14 children is emulating the steps of the Greedy Gosselins, from suspicious use of fertility treatments (why don't you ask Kate about THAT?), to purposely having too many children (under the guise of Christianity and refusing to reduce)to now demanding $ for her "story".

What a waste of air time.

HC1010 said...

"In a time when people are losing their homes and jobs, why do you think you deserve a house that is obviously to big for you?"

If they can pay for the house, why should they not have it? Do you think everyone that can afford their house should give it up just because some people can't? She is helping the economy by spending money. That is what we need.

Daydream Believer said...

Larry King NEVER asks tough questions!!! That is the only reason she has ben booked for that show. Why don't they put her against O'Reily? He isn't afraid to open his mouth or point fingers!!!! Now that would be good watching!!

Scruffy's Mom said...

1. The Konpound will soon have a production room built there so they can do satellite feeds from home.
2. King will lob softballs at Kon.
3. Jon is in Utah ...skiing with 15 year olds.
4. TLC crew members (who live in the apartment above the garage) are babysitting the kids.

I don't want to speak for the other poster but I think they meant why should Jon and Kate have a house handed to them that they don't deserve? They didn't work one single minute for that house, and its disgusting to see them waste away the children's money.

margojata said...

Oh yeah, I would love to see Kate go against O'Reilly or Nancy Grace. Never gonna happen though because they'll see right though her, the Queen of Child Exploitation.

Its A Good Thing said...

AonyMomma: Great question and yet another questionable story of J&K. I think Kate knew exactly what she was doing when, after being hospitalized for hyper stimulated ovaries, she conceived the tups. I think, at least Im praying no doctor would be unethical enough to continue her treatments.

sadie said...

My question submitted:

Hi Kate,
Jon said in an interview recently that one of the reasons why your family has benefited handsomely from your show has been the "marketability" of the children. How would you suggest to the mom of octuplets to increase the "marketability" of her children?

;-)

NDmom said...

Okay, I submitted my question:

Kate - Wouldn't it be easier to raise and parent children, especially multiples, with other family and relatives involved, such as grandparents, aunts, and uncles?

Vicki said...

I respect their right to privacy and I understand why the remaining Dionne Quints are not ever quoted
on the current issues surrrounding
J&K and now the California woman,
but I sure would love for them to
tell it like it is. All this must
hurt them so much and brings back
great childhood pain. We are living in a warped world when children on dispay is suppose to
be entertainment (TLC standards, not mine).

irateb/cofkate said...

OH NO! I can't DVR Larry King, J&K and The Bachelor!!!!!! Shoot. I hope the link will be online tomorrow!

Serena said...

I sent this question:

"What advice would you give Nadya Suleman regarding ways to avoid exploiting her children and protecting them from public scrutiny? What are some ways she can safeguard their privacy and ensure that they have a normal childhood free of the constant presence of cameras?"

Jane said...

I didn't submit a question but gave my opinon of having her on the show.

flatmouse said...

Thanks for the heads up about Larry King. I too submitted a question regarding the love offerings and $20 photos and then a million dollar house. If anything, maybe the type of questions being submitted might lead to an additional story later down the road.

Keri said...

does anyone think they will be able to get this up on the internet, like youtube for example? this interview is going to be on at the same time as the new episode tonight!

Ahahahahaha!!! The Bachelor won out with me, too! Can't miss that.

chesterctymom said...

My email questioned how Kate can continue to insist that she is not glamorizing her lifestyle and yet accept free luxury vacations, top of the line free gifts and most recently a million dollar home. Does she feel that she set a bad example, showing others how to make a buck off of their children.

We'll see...like everyone else, I have a feeling any controversy will be avoided.

BTW-I did hear that the octuplet mom has hired a PR (that means public relations) firm. I wonder if it's the same that Kon uses?

emptynester said...

The octuplet mom has ALREADY hired a PR firm - Joann Killeen of Killeen Furtney. She was quoted on today's news as saying "She's the most popular mom in the world right now. Who wouldn't want to talk to her?"

Following in KON's footsteps???

Mikemom said...

Sorry about the La, New York mix up, My point was Kate is speaking all over the place about being a "mom" but it seems she is never home anymore. And when she is home she is taping the show. The kids probably never get enough time with her.

Get a clue said...

Blech, blech, blech. At least this con artist is going to hopefully be seen for what she is with hiring a PR firm before she gets out of the hospital. I guess she gets 1 point for waiting until the babies were the longest surviving octuplets in history.

Beagles 4 said...

Here is the question I sent to Larry King

For Kate Gosselin:

How do you feel about exploiting your children? I am wondering what makes you so popular to be on all these live television shows to give your so called parenting advice. If you are a normal family and not acting, can't you see how dysfunctional your family's lifestyle is?

Tess H. said...

Sometimes they also take phone calls. Not sure if they will this time since I'm sure they're flooded with questions sent via their website. I don't know if the number changes but I found this one that might work - 1-800-676-2100.

I sent 2 questions in so far - one earlier in the afternoon for which I received an email thank you; another one a little bit ago for which I haven't received a response.

Voss said...

Is there something I'm missing by everyone explaining what PR means?

Tigerfan said...

At this point, it would be in the BEST interest for Kate Gosselin to heed the infinite words of Abraham Lincoln.

'BETTER TO REMAIN SILENT AND BE THOUGHT OF A FOOL THEN TO SPEAK AND REMOVE ALL DOUBT' !!

tmc said...

Oh my!!! Kate has so much make-up on and that fake tan..... She called Jon helpful, that's a first.

Peg said...

Larry said Jane and Kate LOL! The smile disappeared from her frozen face fast.

OMG she is lying like crazy. It's just her and Jon doing it all. I sooo hope a caller gets through and calls her on her BS!

toomuchforme! said...

Her and Jon do it ALL on their own!!!

ROFL!!

eyes?? said...

What on earth did Kate have done to her eyes??????

scoobydoo said...

"Jane and Kate"

Dunwoody Mom said...

Can you say plastic surgery?

PammyB said...

Ha! Larry King introduced Queen Freebie Irene as "Kate Gosselin from Jane and Kate plus Eight".

JimShorts said...

"multiple blessings" mentioned 3x's

timetogokon said...

Is there something I'm missing by everyone explaining what PR means?

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

In one of his comments, Jon felt the need to clarify that PR meant Public Relations.

gameover said...

Way to plug your book, Kate....
can that tan be any more fake!!

organized said...

Jane & Kate Plus 8?

Go Larry.

Where were the questions??

We did notice the BOTOX!!

jill said...

I am willing to bet money she will not be offered any tough questions. She is acting like she is an expert on 14 children...Kate, you are WAY out of your league!

Lilac Girl said...

Botox??? Wow, Kate looks weird tonight on Larry King. This whole multiple birth topic is insane - women are having litters and then pretending they only expected to have 1 child. Do they really think society believe them? I had to laugh- she must have been completely rankled when Larry introduced her show as the Jane and Kate Plus 8. Her first Larry King and she's in a same sex relationship. Go Larry!

nepa ra said...

Kate looks better "poor".

jill said...

That sucked.

jill said...

So Kate...it was okay for you to choose life, but this lady should have thought to abort? Kate, do you think you were chosen by God or are you scared of the tv competition?

Jen K said...

I was just reading the comments on the Larry King blog and noticed one that seemed to be speaking directly to the producers as if to say, "see all of this, you'd better look into it".

The copy/paste of it was:

“Where there is smoke, there’s fire”.

I would hope that someone over there read those comments and took a tip or two and decided to do some further research. Because it was clear that they were in no way prepared for these questions tonight.

JackfromNY said...

That was pointless. She was on for like 2 minutes.

Peg said...

Something tells me Larry received so many emails about Kon he new better than to open up the phone lines.

Larry! Where was my email question about J&K teaching the new mom how to live like a millionaire off the backs of her kids?

The Martin's said...

I really don't think that it is fair to say that she did this because of Kate. The woman obvioulsy has some issues ?!?! She is asking $2 mil for an interview !!!

"If you friends jumped off a bridge would you jump too"

This lady had no business having IVF when she couldn't afford the 6 kids that she already had.

Marie France said...

eyes?? said...
What on earth did Kate have done to her eyes??????

My QUESTION exactly!!! They look further apart and well, just weird. And botox up the ying yang!

PK said...

I just watched the interview. OMG! Why does anyone want to hear from her? She cannot speak in complete sentences. With 'um' every other word, it was enough to drive me crazy.
She got a nice plug in for "her" book too.

pinkdiamond611 said...

OMG. Who the heck was that? What's with the eyeliner and earrings? ROFLMAO
But, I DO think that Larry got some of the q's we sent over. Did you hear his intonation when he asked Kate, "So you do it all yourself"?

And, then there was the family with the ten year old octuplets, sitting with dignity and grace. The grandma at their side for support, and the Dad working at the hospital. Goodspeed.

gameover said...

That was so disappointing. What's up with Kate saying "I am worried". "that worries me".... UM......worry about your own frickin kids, Kate!!!

I did notice that the female doctor said something like family should help like "grandparents" as if she knew something!

I hope all the sheepie are happy that Kate is spending their money on lip gloss, spray tans and hairspray!! If only someone would shape her eyebrows! It looks like Mady or Cara shaped them for her!

RuthinVA said...

I need to watch that again. Caught where they were talking about the new Cal. mom making money off the new kids. Did Kate have any opinion on that? Bet she cringed when that question came up.

Katherine said...

I noticed her eyes in the P&G pop up promotion and tonite my 12 yr old commented that she couldn't even smile correctly, I am just a middle class single Mom, an advocate myself of an occasional facial and a yearly shot of botox if the budget can afford it, but Kate your doctor is ripping you off, call me, I live in Tampa and I can hook you up with the best esthetician this side of the Mason/Dixon line.

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

Kate Gosselin had no business having IUI when she and Jon could not afford the outcome, either.

RuthinVA said...

I did catch where Kate said something about all the work it takes to care for her children, but when she said it she said something like "it is a lot of work, it is all done by Jon and I." I wanted to yell ME Kate, JON AND ME not JON AND I. I must add it would not bother me at all (well it would bother me but I consider it's Kate) if Kate did not correct grammar all the time.

MayDay said...

I almost choked when Larry made the comment that the octuplet mom wants to sell her story and make money to support her kids. This was the best time to shoot over to Kate and ask her opinion on this. I was dying for him to ask....I bet she was sweating it out that he was going to.

timetogokon said...

Kate and Jon-

Did you hear the experts ?

IT ALL BEGINS WITH THE PARENTING

Also, had to chuckle when Kate was claiming that after the first year, "it was just Jon and I" (no Kate, that is Jon and ME) and the clip behind her showed one of the Nana helpers ( I think she was the one who used to help when Jon was a baby) coming into the kitchen.

jill said...

I bet before she appears on a show some questions are off limits or she will not appear!

Tracy said...

Kate definitely had some facial work since the last time I saw her "live" on TV.. wow.. almost plastic like..

My boys even noticed... as we were switching back and forth between J&K+8 and LK.

LK didn't ask the right question obviously. But I didn't think he would to begin with.

Somewhereinoh said...

Kate Gosselin. When was the last time YOU tucked your kids in bed at night?

PammyB said...

Well, I've just finished watching the Larry King episode and I can say that it was "blah." Kate was nothing more than a filler guest and was totally out of her norm in a discussion that involved more intelligent people. I am a little annoyed that Larry King would have her as a guest for these specific reasons:
1) How can Kate offer advice to a woman who SIX more children than her? The only thing that Kate can offer advice on is marketing her kids and milking them for every dollar their cute smiles can bring in.
2) Kate looks really creepy in HD. I agree with all of you on the creepy eyebrows.

ThreeFarmers said...

What makes this whole thing worse is that now J&K are making $$ from appearance fees to talk about those octuplets. I guess why limit the exploitation to your own children when other people's multiples are on the block as well.

Casey and Smudge said...

It sounds like the LKL interview was a disappointment. How frustrating that no one will ask this woman the hard questions! Hopefully this is the beginning of the end. I'm astounded at how history repeats itself - during the Depression in the 30s, people flocked to see the Dionne's in their matchy-matchy outfits living a luxury life in a veritable prison. Fast forward 70+ years and another economic downturn of depression proportions and people tune in to see the same exploitation. At least in the 1930s, no one could copycat Mama and Papa Dionne. I wait with bated breath to see where this octuplet scandal goes. Perhaps outrage will reach a fever pitch? Or people will tire of living vicariously through the Gosselins and quietly get on with their lives?

AnneMarie said...

KON's blog for LKLive. I can't imagine they are her words. The whole thing is lacking in her typical ums, likes, and pauses or her normal writing patterns - read it makes sense, like it's been edited.

And could she NOT provide a current photo of the family for Larry King?? Geesh

http://larrykinglive.blogs.cnn.com/2009/02/02/lkl-blog-exclusive-jon-kate-plus-8-commentary/

iheartmyhubby said...

The "interview" of Kate from "Jane and Kate Plus 8" (God bless Larry, he is older than dirt) was not that great. He didn't ask her anything that had to do with the show, which I figured he would not since the segment was about the octuplets. I was shocked, though, when she said that she and Jon to everything by themselves. Is she imagining that Nannies-4-Hire and Jenny and all the others do not exist?

News Bug said...

I believe LK said Kate was by hook up from Chicago - makes sense doing her tour of duty in Chicagoland. The segment was scripted by the producers, Larry just reads and Kate is well Kate, justifying her hard life and taking sole credit for making it all work.

Carolina said...

I would love to see Anderson Cooper's take on Kate Gosselin. He pretty much calls them like he sees them (see his tirade about Lindsay Lohan) and I doubt he'd let her get away with soft questioning.

I'd love to see Keith Olbermann take on Kate...get that man fired up, and it'll be all over for KON.

Lots of Luck said...

OMG, take a few moments to go over and look at the Larry King comments section, I just read thru all 300 of them and I would guess maybe 5-10% are pro-Gosselin. Better hurry though, the comments will probably be gone by morning, unless the PR crew is sleeping in the garage apartment...

machinegunsmom said...

If this woman already has 6 kids...why does she NEED advice on how to raise children? Kate basically only has 2 children since she refuses to care for anyone but Hannie and sometimes Leah.

Jon is gipped said...

"Jane and Kate plus Eight" lol come on, Larry, at least get his NAME right. They would be even bigger story if it was a pair of Lesbians with twins and sextuplets!

UsedtoWatch said...

I just caught the LK session with Kate- her face is quite... odd... Let alone her face, it was grating just to have to listen to her! It's ironic that she's chosen to "work" as a public speaker now. "umm. umm... um... ummmm"

and the interview was what i'd expected- she basically promo'd her "reality" show. saying how you can see how much work it is to raise the kids without help after their first year of being born, so you know, everyone should tune in and see how they really live

Kon Tiki said...

Larry asked the usual "marshmallow" questions he usually asks and Kate's answers added nothing to the discussion but of course her new book and reality show received a plug.
Not one of the "expert" guests except for the Psychiatrist would even admit that there maybe something not quite right with "octomom" and this situation.
We will just have to wait and see...
In the meantime (next 18 years), we the taxpayers in the state of California will see to it that these children are housed, fed, clothed and given proper medical attention.

Shell76 said...

In a way, the lack of attention paid to Kate in the interview came across as Larry not wanting anything to do with her. She had no real reason for being there, except maybe she's the only parent of a "6 or more" birth who was willing to speak about it. All the interviewees were extremely "soft" and sounded like they were walking on eggshells. The whole thing was pointless. Best question that came Kate's way was Larry asking her "why should we care", when it came to her watching her family, in similar words. Last thing, Kate looks totally plastic, like a Barbie doll that got in the hands of a 4-year old with a pair of scissors (hair). She's so into the glamour, I don't even see her as a parent anymore.

I read the last word live as lie.. so I do see how they realy lie.... either way, it works. Live Lie whats the diff? Its all the same to KON.

Just one more post, you can now read the transcript of Kate's interview on Larry King's website.
I missed the interview on the show but saw a brief glimpse of Kate and honestly thought something was wrong with my tv, fake tan???,
No, it seemed worse to me...Tanned just wasn't the word, hate to be so mean but her face looked more like it was painted.
Sorry Kate, I think you are a beautiful person but something was just not right tonight.

Good point three farmers, but guess what? Kate is laughing all the way to the bank!

JANE and Kate?? LOL ! I guess the manhood is totally gone now, eh?

Wonder how that little slip went over at the Konpound.

Jerri said...

Good for Kate making $$ of that idiot woman who irresponsibly had herself impregnated. That's the person who you should be going after.
Now, she's going to sell her story for millions. That's who's exploiting her children, all 14 of them.

Dunwoody Mom said...

Supposedly Larry King does not pay his guests to appear on his show.

A friend, who had attended an open casket funeral on Monday afternoon said that she thought QFI was now using mortuary make-up. She said there was less make-up on the corpse than on QFI.

I'm still laughing at "Jane and Kate" - guess Larry has seen the show too and knows what Kate carries in her purse!

But, it's okay for KON to make millions off their children?

Jen K said...

I mentioned to my husband a few months ago that I thought Kate was very pretty. Despite how I feel about her as a person, I thought that. They are both rather good looking people.

But whoa...I think she has taken her beauty treatments a bit too far. She no longer looks pretty...she looks sort of alien-esque now. I agree about the plastic Barbie look to her face. Why do people do that? Expressions are what make people approachable and relatable!

My husband happened to catch a bit of Larry King last night and he audibly gasped, "Oh my God, what happened to her face?" and I said that my opinion was that she had Botox (forehead, eye area and even perhaps the jaw) and he cringed.

She was very pretty in recent months, but wow...luckily Botox, if she got it, isn't permanent and wears off in 6-9 months.

Skraps said...

I think by posting questions for Larry to ask only says - hey there's people out there that want to see more of this crap. I saw what was being posted on LKL's site for questions - it only adds fuel to the fire. I don't think tough questions will make J&K think about what they're doing - they just don't care. They'll exploit their children for as long as they can make $$ off of them. They don't protect their children but in the animal world - a mother will protect her young.

Dr. H said...

I thought Kate looked nice. Her makeup looked professionally done and I would be she had help choosing her outfit. I liked her earrings. She seems to have practiced speaking, her 'ums' have gone away for the most part. I enjoy seeing her without the kids.

Garrett said...

If Kate and Jon were living the life they have now, 8 years ago, they would be saying "We are too busy to have kids". Her star status ( and his ) has outgrown the role as parents. Sure, Kate is all about "making memories", but that's her job. If she doesn't "make memories" for TLC, she has no show, and her star status will crumble.

reenie0912 said...

Just heard that the Octuplet mom is pimping out her kids for $2 million dollars!! I don't think people should be upset about this. This Mom is going to have mountains of medical bills by the time all those babies are out of the hospital. I mean, she WILL be paying her own medical bills, right?!?!? (Insert sarcasm here!)

Joey said...

That show was a waste of time. No one took any kind of position on the situation. No one said anything about the drain on taxpayer money having 8 babies with no means to support them would cause. Yes, she has family, but they already had to sell their house to help her. Kate said she was "worried." What is she worried about? Is she going to go help this woman, no. Is she goin to send them anything? probably not.
The doctors wouldn't take a position either. It was too PC to be interesting in any way.
Kate looked fake tanned.

Get a clue said...

OMG, Kate looked stiff as a board and scared to death. Her eyes were wide almost like she was terrified in the beginning. Then she still sounds like a school girl with an um every two or three words. I counted five in two sentences. How much work has she had done on her face? Love offerings for botox and plastic surgery anyone?

When did vanity become a gift from God, Kate?

No medical bills from the wonder uterus who seems to have had eight just for the notoriety and to try to pimp them out a la Kate. She was smart enough to only rip off Kaiser. It's an HMO so she and the babies are fully covered.

Tonya said...

Does anyone have a link where I could watch the interview online?

Jane & Kate said...

Did she really say "We do it well" when referring to how they are doing with their large family? Really, Kate?

Kate: Think about what you are saying. It is just me, it is just Jon, it is, therefore, Jon and me (NOT JON AND I).

This woman looked ridiculous on the show with all the educated and well-spoken guests. The frozen face, the teased hair, the glossy lipstick, way too much make-up...What is she thinking?

Lots of Luck said...

I too have been searching for the link to view the video. I have to see if Kate truly looked the way I thought she did, during the one-second glimpse I had of the show or was it just my imagination? Serena please help..

beeyotch said...

Kate an expert on parenting-Give Me A Break!!!

If a drug addict takes a lot of pills does that make him a pharmacist? Why are these television networks parading Kate Gosselin a an "expert" on multiples?

Everytime Kate opens her mouth its the same ol' Blah, Blah, Blah.....I hate that beeyotch!

If they can pay for the house, why should they not have it? Do you think everyone that can afford their house should give it up just because some people can't? She is helping the economy by spending money. That is what we need.
***********************************Ok HC1010 I'm gonna whip my kids out of school today and give them signs and have them sit on street corners begging for money [ you know put them to work ] then when I get the $$$ I'll go buy stuff like....uh... How about some new trips and a house ya know to help the economy! The point is to give these kids a childhood back and damn the economy AND with all that Kates purchased in the past two years she alone can turn the economy around!!!

"Chicago's Kate Gosselin"....

Uh... no Kate, we don't want you in Chicago...

peanutbutterjellytime said...

Dr. H,

Kate still constantly says "um" every second. It is very distracting and makes her look stupid. Her "ums" have NOT gone away.

Her face looked plastic. Way to much make-up, or Botox.

Kate's favorite thing is being without the kids.

Yolanda said...

To view the video, go to the Larry King website and under the Recent Highlights section, click on the "Larry King Octuplets Outrage" video.

I don't know how long the link will be there.

Dunwoody Mom said...

Kate has lied so often, she now does not know the truth, even when presented face on to her.

Jennifer said...

I love how Kate's statement that she and Jon had help only the first year and have cared for the kids on their own since then was juxtaposed with clip after clip of the kids (clearly over the age of 1) with other caregivers (Joan, Beth, Janet?). HA!

Also, is Kate stuck in the 80s? What's up with the glossy lipstick, hairstyle, and chandelier earrings? The shirt/jacket combo she was wearing looked odd too. You'd think with all her money, she could hire a professional stylist.

Viena said...

I do not understand how someone could choose to have HOM for fame or money because the work, effort and financial strain should far outweight anything else. And this is not a business. To bring a child (or children) into the world requires a lot of love from parents who truly want to dedicate themselves to their family. I just wish the mother of 14 well and hope that her children will not be negatively affected.

Lisa said...

That interview was a joke! She even made certain to plug their book! I e-mailed Nancy Grace and said RE: Octuplet Mom Story, please look into Gosselin family because IMO, they are the reason women are aspiring to birth HOM. They have had their hand out from the very beginning. Maybe if enough people e-mail her, she will research it. She would definitely not take it easy on Kate & ask the tough questions!

LKL viewer said...

As a LKL viewer for more than 10 years I can tell you that many times the "ask a question" tag (either phone line or email) is simply used to get people interested. Also, it is commmonly known that Larry: 1) always sympathises with his guests & 2) usually doesn't know much about them (he is famous for not reading their backgrounds, watching the movies their promoting or reading the books that they're pluggin) because he likes to "get to know them" on the show

The other Judy said...

I just watched the video. Can I just say again that I have a dear friend who has 8 children. They adopted 5 but DID NOT start out with the intention of adopting them. They wanted to keep the siblings together.
They had 8 children under the age of 10. Several of them did have some challenging behavior due to the stress of the adoption, etc. My friend managed these 8 children with her husband and "some" help from friends/family. They did NOT have help around the clock....no reality show and they live in a 1500 SF house. They would love a bigger house but they can't afford one right now. They live within their means and her husband is a music minister at our church. This woman is not a complainer and glorifies God in all she does.
It burns me to hear Kate say that with tons of help it was hard to care for 8 children. COME ON!!!!!! Let me introduce you to tons of mamas around the country who have many children and don't need to pimp them out to support them.....grrrrr

Its A Good Thing said...

I just saw the video and boy does she look different! Also why did he say she is from Chicago? She looked petrified. Kate said it should never be anybody's goal to have multiples because it isn't necessary. Sounds to me like she is a tad jealous of the new mom and worried that her days are numbered.


Oh and how many times did Kate say she didn't set out to have multiples??

yeaisaidthat said...

Kate said she was "worried."

IMO, Kate Gosselin should be MORE worried about her own eight children instead of spending her time basking in the lime light of the media's sloppy seconds.

whyohwhy said...

I seen a post somewhere where they referred to J&K as stage parents. They are just as bad...so true.

Kate has no right to criticize this woman. Who does she think she is?

And she has definitely had some work done on her face. Her eyes looked very tight.

Ellie said...

MD Teach: There is a home video made by Kate that was pre-TLC; they showed it occasionally in the earlier episodes. The babies weren't able to sit up yet and it was filmed in their first house. In this video Kate introduced all of the sextuplets and she had Mady and Cara do a little song and dance about being twins. Kate said "It's not a glamorous job but it's rewarding..." and wrapped up with something like "Thanks for watching!"

It was not an innocent home video; it was a sales pitch.

C said...

Kate gave an email interview the other day from Chicago with the L.A. Times regarding the octuplets birth. Check out all those !!!!!! she uses! LOL.

Not Good Parenting said...

Funny how Kate didn't have anything to say about giving each child individual attention and how it is all about the parenting. I find it really hard to believe that Kate gives any of her children one on one time anymore including Hannah.

I didn't bother to watch the Larry King interview. Larry is known for being a "soft" interviewer. He would never ever ask a provocative question, so I knew it would be a waste.

As for the octuplet mom, she is totally irresponsible and so is the doctor who implanted all of her 8 eggs!!! Who will support all these kids and why wasn't she sent for counselling before making such an irresponsible decision? That's what I'd like to know.

COO-Pawns said...

Dear Mr Larry King:

Kate Gosselin the ummm....The woman whose uterus resembles a clown car.

She is your guest tonight?

Please get a psych assessment for this lunatic and get her 8 kids into foster care before she ruins them for life.

Thank you,
COO-Pawns

lisak said...

I loved it when L king asked the woman doc about the octuplet mom getting 2 million for her story and she said "I certainly hope she wouldn't USE her children in that way" Kate probably wanted to hide under the desk with that one.

Me says,
She picked the wrong time for a stunt like this. I don't think the public is feeling particularly benevolent these days. With the Grandmother refusing to participate in raising the little monsters, I can see the state planning daily inspections, and subsequent purchase of a school bus for the seizure of the kids. TLC and Discovery replays these shows all day long. No doubt it inspires big dreams.

Oh and maybe if TLC discover channel stopped treating brat factories like celebrities, they'll stop with these ridiculous fertility drugs.

Sorry about my rant, but I feel so much better now!

From kon's website "We had prayed for twins, because Jon was as “baby crazy” as I am and we decided we would fight over one baby!"

The website goes on to say they had the opportunity to adopt a baby after the twins but instead chose more fertility treatments.

There you go. There's the logs of the Gosselin's website, that was put in place before the tups were born. They, by their own admission of begging for handouts on their "prayer list" section of the site, were certainly not making it from the beginning. Kate's parent's church was making it for them. Don't forget to read the part where they beg and demand a 15 passenger van for over a year before finally purchasing one "themselves". Enjoy!

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

Thanks for the video link. My thoughts:

1) OMgosh, her hair is just horrible. Shaved up the back, then fluffy stuff, and then straight ironed in the front. I have a friend who is my trusted hairdresser and she says no way would she agree to style anybody's hair like that.

2) Her face looks plastic. And her collarbone is jutting out like she's lost tons of weight, not in a healthy way.

You're right, her first wedding video shows a pretty, healthy lady. Now she looks like a BRATZ doll.

Allissa said...

Ok, just watched the idiot Kate on L. King on his website. I agree with ALL posters who saw the PERFECT opportunity to ask Kate about making money off kids. "PR" firm crossed that off ole larry's list, I'm sure!
Her botox/fake tan/make up is ridiculous! I don't usually snark on her looks, but she looked ridiculous. I'm sure the sheeple thought she "glowed"

Mommy in PA said...

I can't believe when Larry King asked about the octuplets mom selling her story for $$$ to take care of her family, that he asked one of the doctors for an opinion. He should have asked that one to Kate and see what she had to say about child exploitation! And did you notice all the clips from the show were from the early episodes when the sextuplets were still cute toddlers and they actually had family/friends there?

I'd like to see Nancy Grace go after Kate, then we'll see the truth come out to the world.

So Kate is in Chicago, New York, and wherever else to promote the book and the show and ask for "love offerings". Meanwhile, Jon is at his ski condo in Utah. So who is with the kids? The TLC camera crew (cause that's the only "friends" they have left)?

Actually before the babies were even born Kate tried to sell her story to magazines and anybody who would listen. And they also created a website where people could donate items to them. She started selling her kids when the twins were born. Did you not see the 4 of July episode where they showed footage of Mady and Cara in a stroller that was covered in signs reading THE GOSSELIN TIWNS?

Kris said...

I love how everything "worried" Kate. How surprising (insert sarcasm here) that whenever Larry asked her something about the mother, her answers turned to

".. and that worries me (because she has SIX more kids and is getting all my attention).. I know when Jon and I (it's supposed to be "ME", Miss Grammar-phobic) it was so hard... and esp. the first year and umm... if you watch our tv show, you can see that... and you know, umm like in our book Multiple Ble$$ing$.. it explains the hardships of the ummm first year.. and umm.. as you can see all that on our TV show... ummm.. and that many kids worry me... and ummm..and I know.. me ummm me me... when it was me.. and me... and me.. and Jane... and me... and I... Oh and you know, her having octuplets worry ME.. and ME.. and more ME..."

NOTICE HOW SHE PIVOTED ALL THE QUESTIONS ABOUT SOMEBODY ELSE AND MADE THEM ABOUT HER?!!?!?

Gross. Her other eye was so tight I thought her other eye was half Asian (I'm part Asian too so it is not meant in an offensice way).

You should be worried-- people are starting to see you in a different light. People were right: All good things must come to an end.

Your curtain is closing... fast.

Prepare yourself for the final bow.

karen said...

The producers of Larry King made a liar out of Kate by showing clips when she was denying they took help after the 1st year. They also showed a split screen w/Kate when the Dr. was asked if he thought the mom of 8 plus six was exploiting her kids for money. I bet in doing their research, the producers of that show know all about how the public feels about the Gosselins. Kate sure didn't forget to plug her book and show in an interview about multiples, book deals, talk show offers, etc.----she showed her true colors.

Somewhereinoh said...

It will be interesting as time progresses how the J & K Gosselin sheeple and faithful fans will react if and when Nadya Suleman does accomplish her ultimate 'goal' of selling her 'amazing story'. Will all the faithful fans and supporters of J & K Gosselin equally embrace and be in awe of Nayda Suleman and find her children beyond cute and addorable. Will the faithful fans heed the words of Nadya Suleman the supposed degree holding child expert and aspire to 'be like her', 'relate to her', and feel she is 'deserving' of all that comes her way? Will they 'forgive' Nadya Suleman for her conscious decision to utilize medical/science technology as a means to provide herself with 8 more children, despite having six children already, because she wanted to know what it was like to have more 'children'? Will they forgive her for not being financially responsible and dependant upon the taxpayers and community donations to 'provide a roof over her head and food on the table'. Will the faithful fans and supporters of J & K Gosselin use the 'until you walk in her shoes' defense when/if Naydia is given a 'reality tv' contract including all the free sponsored vacations, trips to amusement parks, free clothing/toys/cosmetic surgery in exchange for product placement. Will they giggle with excitement and applaud Nadaya when she parades her 14 children from one media interview to the next and talks of her endless exhaustion, giving parenting advice and her 'need for so many things' (including a bigger home). Will they rush to buy her 'amazing story' and stand in line 200 people deep to get an autograph and a 'glimpse' of what she looks like in person?
OR...........
Will the sheeple JUDGE her for the irresponsible use of medical/science technology. Will they accuse Nadaya of exploiting her octuplets by 'holding out' for a 2 million media deal. Will they judge and chastize her for not being married, being an irresponsible parent, her desire to have more children, the who, what , where , when, and how of her fertility treatments. Will they get on the 'she is using the birth of her octuplets as a means to HER own end soapbox?

PattyWithNoPity said...

Did anyone record the Larry King segment??? I looked on Youtube and its not there (yet?) I so want to see this farce..

Serena said...

TLC President Eileen O'Neill said production companies that work with TLC have already made offers to Suleman's family, but the network is waiting to see how TV-friendly the family is.

Translation?

"TV-friendly" = "marketable".

Ms. Suleman better hope those tups are cute.

I was able to go to larry King link provided on this post around 5pm today and there was a link on King's site about "octuplet mom". It has whole interview with doctors and the "mother of the year", Kate. Good luck!

Me said...

Quote from Kate: "very worried". I bet you are.....

The other really funny one: she feels like she had octuplets in three years. Wow. I wonder if she will ever have ANY idea how stupid and hypocritical that is.

tha squirrel watcha said...

Ok. I don't think Kate looked bad. The earrings were out of character for her. Her makeup could have been a bit more colorful because it blended in with her hair color. Yes, she has had some work done, like some restylane & botox, or maybe some weightloss. You know it's coming up in a show eventually, so maybe they're filming now.

I just loved how they kept showing all of the scenes with the helpers, obviously with the kids over the age of one!

Tess H. said...

Larry King had a short segment on at the end of tonight's show about the octuplets. He interviewed the PR lady. She talked about how the mom has a great story and will share it at some point. She said something along the lines that the mom is a great person and has been able to take care of her 6 children just fine without welfare assistance. She said that she does not want a reality show. Larry asked about or mentioned the rumor/news that the woman is living with her parents. The PR lady said that no she did not live with her parents but that obviously while she was on bed rest they helped with the 6 older kids. Finally, the PR lady said that, as the rep. for her client, she was reviewing all of the incoming requests/offers/etc. and will present them to her client with pros and cons.

Tess H. said...

To add to what I said earlier re: tonight's Larry King show, the PR lady said that the mom was wanting 1 more child (sound familiar?!). And the PR lady did not come across as defensive or agitated at the news (possibly incorrect) swirling about. She was very calm and pleasant.

Funny you mention that, because O'Reily was fuming tonight over this whole thing. If anybody takes J&K down from a media standpoint it will be Bill O'Reily.

beachluvin said...

Larry King was did another segment on the birth of the octuplets again tonight. He showed Kate again, I thought that she was a guest again but it was a clip from the previous evening. He had the new PR representative on for the mother of the octuplets. I think its funny how this going to blow up in the Gosselin face.

As I was looking at Kate tonight on Larry King, I was thinking of her "coupon" behavior and how different she behaves in interviews. Does she think that no one notices? i guess Larry King wouldnt know the difference.

Ruthe said...

Hey, just a thought, because my children are now 20, 19, and 17, according to Kate I had triplets in three years. We all could be mothers of multiples.

BeWong said...

The part where Kate said in the interview "I felt like I had octuplets...eight in three years" bugged me. Like she's trying to say she's the same as this Cal woman. Having eight babies (and six at home) all at one time is a lot different than having six babies and two three year olds at home.

I loved how Kate said they have no help and it's just her and Jon, but in the clips of the show, they were all of Beth, Nana Janet, Carla, etc. Sure looks like their on their own. She's grasping at straws and I truly hope this is the beginning of the end for that show. What a farce this show has become.

KON's blog for LKLive. I can't imagine they are her words. The whole thing is lacking in her typical ums, likes, and pauses or her normal writing patterns - read it makes sense, like it's been edited.

And could she NOT provide a current photo of the family for Larry King?? Geesh

I agree, this didn't sound like Kate's usual interview to me at all. And yes, they need to start showing up to date photo's of the kids. I guess everyone's assumption is right, that they show pictures of the kids when they were younger to give off the effect that they are still babies. Is anyone that naive?

MsPeabody said...

Having children is NOT a business! No one should be having fertility procedures done with a risk of multiples if they cannot afford the consequences. Having children is a BLESSING from the Lord, not a business.

beachluvin said...

On the Today show today, the PR representative is saying the mother of the octuplets tried for only one more baby.
Isn't this exactly what Kate and Jon have said, that they tried for just one more?
Yeah, sure!

cheryl said...

It appears that history is repeating itself: Her PR person states she has a degree, is working on a MS, paid for the fertilization treatment by living off of an accident settlement, yet she or family member declared bankruptcy a yr or so ago with about $900,000 debt. IMHO, are we lying or telling stories to appear more solid in the community???

RuthinVA,
We were having a little contest on another site trying to guess how many 'umms' Kate would utter. I kept track & there were 32 'umms' (2 were kinda 1/2 ah/um) in the few short minutes she was on providing her 'expert advice'.

All of these media gigs she's(KG) doing will be her undoing. The negative media attention Octopussy has generated, I think it's pretty safe to say that her tentacles are wrapping themselves around Kon. People are outraged from most of what I've seen. Hopefully Anderson Cooper & Nancy Grace will pick up on like Bill O'Reilly has and further expose these frauds.

Again, the timing of Octuplets birth on same day as Konpound unveiling, couldn't have been scripted any better!

More To The Story said...

Kate lies through her teeth. They have had help ESPECIALLY after the children were 1. What a big fat liar and she knows it.

She wants everyone to believe that WALA the tups were a big surprise to her and Jon but she knew she was going to have multiples. She planned it that way, just like with the twins. She always wanted multiples and even obsessed about it.

There is a lot more to the Gosselin story than they want people to know.

Just One more Baby said...

Well it happened, this morning on the Today SHow, the PR spokesperson for the mom of the octuplets said it, "She only wanted one more baby."

Now, where have we heard THAT before. LKL :"We only wanted one more baby, but got five more than we planned."

The Octup Mom is learning well from Kate. And BTW, how does one more baby (embryo) split into 8??

Lisa said...

I just e-mailed O'Reilly - I think everyone should while the octuplet birth is big news. He is obviously outraged and if enough people bring KON to his attention, he would let Kate have it with both barrels.

Jackie said...

There is no way TLC's PR people would let Kate go up against Bill O'Reilly. The guy can tear apart slick politicians who're experts at verbal swordfighting and crafting lies. Kate wouldn't stand a chance and TLC's people know it. She'd end up going "ummm...ummm...ummm" like she was chanting a mantra, while O'Reilly buried her. Furthermore O'Reilly would never agree to let them pre-screen his questions, or tell him what to ask and what not to ask. People do come on The Factor plugging their books etc. but they do so at their own risk. He's not Larry King.

Me Too said...

I was watching Bill O'Reilly last night [as I always do] and when he talked about the octuplet mom I thought his head was going to explode. He said he was going to talk about every night until he got some answers. So please if you can try to tune in.

Steph said...

I am sure this has been mentioned, but I am not going to read all 200 posts to be sure.
Kate made a comment that was something like...'You know, I know that eight children -- feeling like I had octuplets in three years. It's all we could do to keep it together.'

Is she trying to say that her situation is the SAME as octuplets? weren't the twins like 4 or 5 when the babies were born? It's like she can't just be one step down from someone else.
Sad.

I will email Bill O as soon as I write this.

I emailed Nancy Grace yesterday,.

Who wants to bet the octuplet Mom is a Jon and Kate "junkie"?

bill o'reilly said...

Bill O'reilly was FUMING over the octopulet story last night. He especially went nuts over the prospect that they would "market" those children in order to provide an income. It made me think of Jon saying how marketable his children were, and a perfect opportunity for anyone to write a letter to BO about Jon and Kate including her LKL appearance as an "expert". I would love to see a form letter that anyone interested could email him.

TLCexploitsChildren said...

From the LKS transcript:

K. GOSSELIN: You know, honestly, I believe that every life that is created is created for a purpose. But I feel like responsibility needs to come into this. If that is the truth, it scares me.
And in the local paper while demanding the additional year of a free nurse for her kids she let it be known she felt it was SOCIETIES responsibility due to fertility treatments being available, so why isn't Kate singing the song she felt was owed to her should be given to octoplet mom? Society glamorized having sextuplets by gushing all over Katie Irene and giving her all these great gifts but now she thinks the mom needs to be "responsible"??? Shut it Kate she deserves every thing you got for the same reason.

In our situation, we set out for a third child. We actually did IUI, which is intra uterine insemination, where the ovaries are stimulated and then the sperm is implanted and basically whatever happens happens. OMG, Kate, stop making it sound like there was NO clue that you were at extreme high risk for HOM when you either had a crazy as the octuplet mom go ahead and inseminate you with the hyperstimulated ovaries or you and Jon did the fertilizing the old fashion way. No way you go those sextuplets without knowing full well that was a risk due to the overstimulated ovaries that landed you in the hospital. Don't try to con those of us who bothered to learn your story and how IUI really works.

And in no way, shape, or form did we ever set out to have multiples again. But we're aware that that could happen. Major eye roll here, if you didn't want to risk multiples you'd never ever have gone through that cycle with the hyperstimulated ovaries for the love of all that is holy STOP telling LIES.

So, you know, it's just one of those situations. I always say, modern medicine is not perfected and everybody needs to make their own decision where they are concerned. yeah, and you admit your not perfect either Kate and you either ignored your doctor's advice or you wanted HOM. And seeing as how you've parlayed the HOM birth you had into a million dollar empire I'm guessing you knowingly did so hoping for a large number of fetuses to develop.

KING: Apparently, Lisa, the woman wants to sell her story, we learned, to media outlets for money to raise her family.

What do you make of that?

Does that put a damper on this?

MASTERSON: Well, I don't know if that's true or not.

KING: You don't know. But, again, that's the reports.

MASTERSON: You hope that the babies wouldn't be -- yes -- wouldn't be used in that sort of fashion. But we don't know. All we know is that this woman is going to need economic support. She's going to need support from family because to raise all those babies all at once, she's going need, you know, a lot of support.

Well, you two have Kate Gosselin the queen of HOM children exploiter sitting right there spouting off with her wisdom yet you hope someone else WON'T follow her example? Get real and good job ignoring the 800 lb gorilla in the room doc and Lar. Argh.

I think I'll boycott any company using this woman for ads.

wramblinwreck said...

Suleman's new PR rep, Joann Killian, sure has been busy. Larry King last night, and this morning on GMA, interviewed by Meredith Vierra, saying essentially the same things she said to Larry. It's very obvious that Killian is trying hard to rehabilitate her client's image and she wants the media to believe there's this "amazing" story just waiting to be told, if only someone will pony up the hefty price tag for it! No amount of damage control can change the basic fact that Suleman is obviously holding out to tell her story to the highest bidder, hoping that the longer she remains silent and allows the PR folks to peddle their spin to the media, the greater interest there will be in paying what she wants. I don't think any of the legitimate news outlets will pay, but a tabloid might offer something (although I doubt the millions she wants) for an interview and photos of the babies.

ParanoiaWillDestoryYA said...

TLCexploitsChildren brought up valid points. Kate knew all about multiples, especially if she was a nurse and had twins prior to the tups. She knew exactly what she was doing when she did it. She knew she wasn't going to have JUST ONE MORE. Enough of the lies already.

There is something very suspicious about their story and I hope it breaks wide open now.

As for them taking responsibility, Kate's comments were laughable at best. Especially when she stated that it was society's responsibility to take care of her children.

She should be worried, very worried.

K.Barrett said...

I think the Octuplet mother may have have some mental problems and/or obsessions, but it pisses me off that Kate is trying to steal her thunder. How friggin stupid is it to say that she felt like she had octuplets because she had 8 kids in 3 years. NOT THE SAME, KATE! GET OVER YOURSELF! Seriously, what is wrong with her?

Keep the comments going on Larry King.
There is a section on comments from "last nights show" that you can add to.

From AOL News: TLC President Eileen O'Neill said production companies that work with TLC have already made offers to Suleman's family, but the network is waiting to see how TV-friendly the family is.

SICK SICK SICK! TLC is really pushing it.

Ok. I don't think Kate looked bad. The earrings were out of character for her. Her makeup could have been a bit more colorful because it blended in with her hair color. Yes, she has had some work done, like some restylane & botox, or maybe some weightloss. You know it's coming up in a show eventually, so maybe they're filming now.

I just loved how they kept showing all of the scenes with the helpers, obviously with the kids over the age of one!

I wonder if Kate thinks she is sooo cool that she can start a trend with that hair-do(n't). The 'Kate Look". Kate dear, the only place zebra stripes look good are on a zebra.

It's a sure thing Kate would not face Bill O'Reilly at her own free will. Most of the time OReilly's will put insiders on the show to pressure the source into coming on the show.

Bill should start with Paul Peterson and let Paul compare the octuplet affair to what J&K are doing. Then if he could get Aunt Jodi on the show, or Beth and to top it off reveal the concept of love offerings Bill OReilly will blow a gasket compared to last night.

Besides Bill OReilly has far more viewers than Larry King.
