Oldies But Were They Goodies

During the hiatus, we plan to bring back to the top of the blog the discussion for the 10 pm epsiode on Monday nights if TLC is showing one as they are this week. If TLC doesn't air a repeat, then perhaps we'll have moderators' or viewers' choice.

Screw the Gosselins. I'm watching Intervention.

melodee said...

word 3farmers! i'll take a re-run of intervention over k8&8 any day. at least they are *real* people, with *real* problems.

melodee said...

also: they are really only good to show just how far the gosselins have fallen. the difference in who they are as people and as a family is blatantly obvious, forever frozen in time on video, for all the world to see. yes, please, let's relive all the glorious gosselin days, lest we momentarily forget how utterly hard their life was, how many warm & fuzzies the kids got when they were sick and parked on the laundry room floor to be easier to clean, or the kids first poops and pees! yippeee! i'm so excited i can't wait.

Watching poor Aaden while he is sick - and Kate says to the kids who are watching so intently, "Maybe he doesn't need an audience." Really? Turn off the camera. Turn out the lights. I really cannot imagine the damage it does to a wee little child, who is feeling really crummy, to have a camera shoved in his face, and hot lights going. Uggh. There should be laws.

I watched Intervention tonight. But I'm Central time zone so I caught the Icky Show, as well, though I don't normally watch it. I only got through a bit of it and only by imagining what was going to be said here about it.

I know this was a teeny tiny moment, but in the "giving back" (ahem) episode in Memphis, when Kate was in the store with the twins, they were looking for a tool present for some guy named Mr. Terry (I have no idea who that is).

Anyway, the girls decided what they wanted to give him and Kate tried to hand the things to one of the twins. The girl said "I don't have anymore hands" and Kate said "oh" and held it herself, very begrudgingly. Did anyone catch that? Both of the 8 year old twins were absolutely loaded down with stuff in their arms, she had nothing in her hands, and she was trying to hand a plier set and a measuring tape to one girl to carry. What the HECK?

It was a tiny but powerful moment because her narcissm is just out of control. It really is. Has anyone ever counted the number of times she says I or me in one episode? TONS.

I literally cannot stand this family.

Oh my I am SO HAPPY to have stumbled on this site!!!
I found another Gosselin site (a fan site) who spends so much time gushing about how great they are, it's laughable.
After seeing ALL Kate's appearances right there on the sidebar, any fool could see: this woman is NOT mothering her children!!! She is never home to do it!
I was actually a fan of the show UNTIL I read that fan's blog! And saw how over the top they'd become.
Kind of one of those things you don't realize because you're too close to see it?

I called my mom and asked how she was feeling about Kate, because we used to love the show. My mom summed it up for me: Kate has become a TOTAL diva. Mom also said she'd been to the fan site, and my, aren't some people willing to believe anything!! How true.

So thanks for this blog, can't believe it took me this long to see the truth about Kate. I think I'll keep reading the other site just for fun, when I need a GIANT laugh!

One Kate worshipper seems to think she and Kate are truly just the very best of buds! They even talked to each other ONCE! LOL!

I have shut them off forever.

Sherp said...

I am retired so have lots of free time to fill up. My pals who are still working would laugh their heads off about a Jon and Kate discussion. They would not even know who they are. Maybe it has something to do with idle hands. Love the kids, Jon takes pretty good care of them and Kate is a witch.

Enough is enough said...

I caught a scene from a recent episode where she took the kids to paint....Anyway, at the end when she was showing the paintings...she held hers up FIRST. I thought, 'wow...she is impressed with her ability to draw a flower.'

One for example of me, me, me, me

She certainly is one deranged woman! I've noticed lately how she subtly ( subtlely ? ) writes things as if Kate is her BFF and gives her inside scoop no one else would know. Obviously she makes it up, but its still very bizarre and her husband needs to get her some counseling. She wears what Kate wears, buys her kids the same clothes as the G kids, celebrated Kate's B-day with a cake with Kate's name on it, and would take a bullet for her.

And she thinks WE are the crazy ones.

RealMom said...

I'm taking a break from them. I watched these shows once, got pissed off, don't want to do it again. Besides, why contribute to TLC/Gosselin ratings and $$$ by watching reruns. I am sure Kate will be all over my TV soon to promote her new books anyway, and all this controversy just keeps her more in the public eye and she becomes more and more known. I remember that Kim Kardashian became famous only because she was Paris Hilton's friend and she denied having sex on tape. That was is, nothing more and nothing less. Then the tape came out (she made alot of cash) and now she is a bonafide legitimate "celebrity" appearing on TV shows and becoming more and more known and famous. I won't contribute to these people and their quest for stardom.

I stumbled onto one of the pro Gosselins websites and I have to say I was disturbed with what I saw there. I just had to shake my head and snicker at this lady. I’m not sure what her relationship is with the Gosselins as it seemed that her blog had some personal pictures in additional to the promotional pictures, picture from TLC’s website, and Kate’s faux scrapbook. There was a snapshot of Aaden that was obviously taken on a personal camera and who knows where she got that from. She says she is just a ‘mom’ but she clearly has gone overboard with being star stuck with the children. Who creates a blog and pastes pictures of children seen on TV all over it? I certainly hope she doesn’t have them in her house either! It says it was a real Jon and Kate tribute fan page. Um, what tribute?

Mr. Chow said...

I'm so sick of the Gosselins, I'm glad they're on hiatus. Those two child expoliting freeloaders can ride off into the sunset as far as I'm concerned.

She can call herself the president of Kate's fanclub all she wants, but *normal* people simply don't say and do the things she does. Especially grown women with a husband and children. She is the sheeple-est of all sheeple. kate should be very scared of her....and probably may even want to consider a restraining order. I wouldn't doubt one bit this person would camp outside the KONpound and try to make her way in because she has brainwashed herself that Kate is her friend.

Yeah I agree. This woman is a little more than just a fan or sheeple. She is a stalker. I would definitely fear for my childrens' safety if this was happening to me. Of course this is something that would not happen to be because I would never put my children in the position that K8 has put hers in.

Anonymomma said...

Speaking off, I had just gotten out of the shower this morning and they were on TV. It was the episode where they drove to NC. I never saw it before. And now I wish I could go back in time because the mental picture of Jon screaming on the top of his lungs "SHUT UP!" to a van full of kids will be burned in my mind forever.

I literally looked at the TV and said "Hellllooooo dumbass! It's called letting the kids out of the van and taking them into the house BEFORE you decide to back your vehicle up in the driveway which you obviously don't know how to do!".

Grrrrrrrr!


Sorry 'bout the rant. I had 3 hours of sleep and hubby has food poisoning.

Stupid people piss me off.

ladylou said...

All I want to say is "if one acts like a celebrity, and one looks like a celebrity" then they handle their families like all celebrities... just pass the care of your children and your home off to the "help" while you fill your days with endless shopping and self serving ways. Just remember Kon, the celebrities are usually lonely people at heart.
By the way, my grand daughter and myself totally destroyed the kitchen today... we made 3 batches of non-organic monkey munch, with chocolate and powdered sugar everywhere. She didn't just lick the big blue spatula! She told me we were making a memory she'll never forget and that made me happy we made such a mess!
Thanks Kon for showing me the way to "NOT" do things as you do.

Thanks for reminding me of this. At least Aaden got a little mothering that day as Leah and Alexis fought over who was his buddy as they patted his head. Hannah must have been off geting some nurturing lessons from Kate. Aaden even managed a smirk while they were fighting over him!

Pamela Jaye said...

i've watched some old eps recently because I missed Aunt Jody (which eps is she in, btw? (wow that sounds grammatically wrong))
and cause I wanted to see if it was ever better. what I found was that even in the One Year Later, it was mostl about Kate and her belly. Housekeeper Hunt ended with Kate white-gloving and klucking. I remember that one. Fresno was about Maddie being dramatic and Kate pretending to be... pretending that she relies upon God. It makes me sad for the reputations of all the people who really do. The book, especially, makes me feel that way.

` Willow said...

Oh dear. I just found this article where Kate is talking about Nadya Suleman. What she says is so horribly hypocritical.

"Q: How do you think this will affect her other children?

Kate: There will be various reactions, ranging from helpfulness, involvement to resentment of the complete chaos and lack of attention the older six will now receive."

The COMPLETE CHAOS?

Lack of attention the older six with now receive?

You're kidding me, right?

Does she understand that she has complete lack of control?

And she doesn't give any of her kids individual attention! She's too busy flying off on so called 'business trips' to tend to her kids (don't you think she goes on an awful lot of business trips? It seems like that on the last few episodes the kids are saying, "mommy is on a business trip," or "she was on a business trip,"?).

I am thoroughly disgusted.

Ravello said...

I am not watching any more Gosselin episodes but still read this blog daily. It is a great idea to bring the old threads up to the top. We do not want to forget the nightmares of Joelgate, Gumgate, Furniturebuyinggate and all the reprehensible episodes so we can explain to sheeples what is wrong with this sham of a show. Welcome new readers, spread the word.

jonandkatewho? said...

Anonymomma, I so agree with you!

I saw that episode on repeat the other day and I can't forget it either. I keep remembering how loudly Jon actually must have yelled at those kids, when you could hear it outside of the van.

He just yelled "SHUT YOUR MOUTH!!" and Kate gets this sad face as if she never talks to the kids like that. What a hypocrite. Said to Jom that he wasn't very nice. It didn't even faze him.

I think we can all say UGH. There was no reason for that yelling.

Lindsay said...

Hey fellow K8 H8ers! Have any of you guys noticed that Keight can't even walk in her high heels?! She tries to look like an all-important celebrity, chewing her gum all nonchalantly when she really looks like a big ol' poser. Perhaps that HORRIBLE hair flap gives her balance issues??

Speaking of hair flap. Was have my hair done yesterday and was chattign with my colorist about the hairstyles of current. I made the comment on how the 90's spikey in the back longer in the front, and variations of, hair style has come full circle. Of course, we got on the topic of Kate Gosselin's hair and my stylist described Kate's 'bangs' as a 'hair flap'. Adding that, obviously Kate has a stylist (makeup/hair/dress) and cannot understand why, as a fellow hair stylist, that Kate's hair is being cut and styled with that heavy hair flap bang. She said the cut in and of itself wouldnt be so bad, and much more flattering, if the 'hair flap' was actually cut and texturized to incorporate and blend in with the rest of her hair. And or, she allowed the length of the back and sides to grow out. To which my response was, 'well you cant hide bitchiness behind that bang'. IMO, Kate wears that heavy hair flap to hide her wonky eye.

Well, it's official. This stalker lady is IN LOVE with GWoP! She can't get enough of it. She's been reading these posts and reacting to them on her stalker blog. I purposefully wrote something to get her riled up, and she took the bait hook, line and sinker. Tee- Hee

I think she's "just jealous" of GWoP. :)

Ah yes this "so called b.f.f of kate and family". More like fanatic. I cant even ponder or imagine what’s its like for her. To live your life idolizing “Kate” and family. Why would you even look up to Kate all mighty? Why would you try to follow this woman as you own sister. Looking up at her and trying to do all the same things Kate does everyday. Let me guess every time Kate tugs on her ears it’s a shout out to that woman.

Yes I admit in her words i am a "Troll". Well sweetie i am what i am. But also do show my face off myspace and my real name. I am proud for what I stand for. I am not a follower. Nor am I jealous of Kate and Family. I wouldn’t want their life any day.
Nor would I look up to them for guidence and spirtual faith. To me the gosselin family is a horrible result of overindulgence. They are not helping anyone other than their selves.

...who are being exploited to make money for A&E. They may not be children, like the Gosselin kids, and they may "agree" to be filmed for that "documentary" that will turn into an intervention, but they are people with intense problems, who are deeply unhealthy and unable to make informed decisions. Who are having their deepest issues displayed in living color for our entertainment.

How is this okay? Why do we support one and not the other? It's just another version of the Gosselins vs. the Duggars vs. the Hayes.

*sigh* I just don't get the difference, really. It's a slippery slope.

teacher/mom said...

Can anyone please post the site you are talking about with the stalker woman?
I was watching the older episodes lately and Kate surely had face work done.
I also watched the bakery one and listened while they were there and Jon really let Kate have it.

I think it's against blog rules.

Let's just say I mentioned the stupid cake picture she had for Kate ( I did it on purpose, knowing she'd take the bait..and she did ), and now she is going ON AND ON saying all the haters are in an uproar ( really? ) because we thought she actually baked the cakes. She's diarrhea'ing at the mouth that we are so stupid to think she actually made the cakes and now all we are talking about is the cakes she made.

#1, I've seen no "uproar" like she said is happening, and #2 her overreaction to one little post here just prooves she a looney-tune. She TOTALLY blows everything out of proportion.

I wonder if she can find a cake on photobucket for her own b-day that says "I'm Nuttier Than A Squirrell".

Pat said...

Has anyone seen the tups b'day episode (the one with Cupcakegate?) recently? It never seems to be on, and it's not on the DVD either (no I didn't buy it, but the episodes are listed in the ads). It's strange. It's not like there isn't a disgusting example of poor parenting in every episode, so why delete that one? (Maybe it has to do with the people who own the cupcake place, maybe there was some contractual dispute?)

Denise said...

"nuttier than a squirrel" BM is so dumb she draws attention to the sites that make fun of her!

I wonder what she will do when J&K is finally canceled. Obsessed is a mild word for her!

She raves about how many "hits" she gets and someone finally told her it's just gawkers that can't believe she is for real.
