talk about desperate ......

Carrie said...

Thursday, time for another edition of the Jodi and Kevin show. I expect the last showing before the season premiere will be a real doozy, but will we tune in?

hatchet said...

It's not so much the moderation that's responsible for the fictional comments over there, it's the fact that most of them are being churned out by the PR people themselves. I know there are still some idiot sheeple left out there, but surely there can't be THAT many.

tallblonde said...

I knew it wasn't Kate writing it as soon as I read it - there wasn't a single "Ummmmmmmmmmmm" in the blog! *LOL*

Cherier1 said...

Some of the comments are hilarious!
I don't think Kate realizes....

Kris said...

TLC and Figure 8 think we're stupid.

That's ok - let them. The Gosselin train wreck is almost over, and it will be a learning lesson for the supposed learning channel.

Sarcasm said...

No, negative comments will not be accepted. I'm currently trying to see how completely over the top (dripping with sarcasm) I can get while also mentioning the GWOP site.

Lala said...

Since you don't want to contribute to her blog counter, could you or those who have been on her blog please highlight what is on there? And if it is really Kate's blog/and/or from Kates camp of people??

Anonymous said...

Looks like all the negative comments at the blog have been removed. I just left a post commenting on the lack of negative comments and how I believed a publicist wrote the blog. Bet it never shows up!!!!

JFS in IL

see - I do sign my posts so not totally anonymous.

Kayelzibub said...

Maybe if she would stop giving interviews she wouldn't be in the "limelight" and paprazzis wouldn't follow her around...

BMWoP said...

A lot of people posting there are actually mocking Kate. The one about the hair is totally mocking her.

Ms.Peach said...

This is a total PR stunt. Someone other than Kate wrote it, and most the comments are made up. They want the sheeple to think that she is accessible. Other than sheeple, I can't imagine anyone buying this load of ****

SARCASM said...

LOL. I just know other people are doing the same thing as me on Khate's "not-a-blog", for example:.

"I do not know how you deal with all you do, girl. You are heaven sent. A Goddess. An Angel. The kids just are lucky as they can be. Your hair is fabulous and everyone I know wants that style: "The Gosselin".

Never change. Stay true to yourself and yourself alone."


I just posted, "If lovin' you is wrong, I don't wanna be right". My fingers are crossed.

Hambone said...

I do think Kate wrote it. #1 It's a very cheesy blog post .....who the hell ever talks like that?

And the dead giveaway is all the exclamation marks. Kate is well known to overuse them !!!!!!!!!!!!

As a teacher ( I can't help but critique it )it REALLY looked like something a 4th grader would have written for a state writing test. It was in no way natural and reeked of over-trying.

It's not that great of a post, so I'm confused as to why people don't think she wrote it. It's awful for a 34 year old woman who is a NY Times best selling author. I'd be very embarrassed to have other "real" authors read it. To me, it's just further proof she didn't write MB.

6kidsinpa said...

ROFL All comments have to be "approved" so (of course) they are all positive! It looks like ALL of the comments were posted in the span of less than 8 hours. Once word of the blog got out they were probably overwhelmed by negative remarks & it must take a lot of time to muddle through the thousands of negative posts to come up with 100 "printable" ones!

Lisbeth said...

IMO...I thought the blog sounded like her. (Her voice came through when she mentioned...one can never have too many frogs, evidently).

This is an interesting approach for the Kate and TLC to take re: all the negative media lately. Now there is MORE evidence how extensive the negative impact has on her children's daily lives from their years of being exploited (they are followed to the store by paparazzi??) but the show must go on..no matter the cost to the childrens lives and future.

Paps following kids makes me sick. Parents who don't stop throwing their kids in the spotlight and continue to exploit them...criminal. Blog away Kate. Keep on talking. More evidence.

Melissa Vegas said...

Wow. Heavy moderation indeed. Every comment was positive. I don't think that's an accurate representation of how people react to her blog, and I don't think it is fair for them to not post at least SOME negative comments. I suppose it is their site, so they have every right to only post the comments they want to post, but come on. Ugh.

FancyNancy said...

I just went to TLC to read her phony blog. I saw on the main page that there is some dumb Jon & Kate Plus 8 Quiz, and the top score belonged to a "Kevin P." I'm sorry, but that is creepy to me. Why is it OK with them that men are obsessed with their kids???

thehazlettfamily said...

OMG. I had to start my birthday out by puking. I should never have read the comments.

KonNoMore(Barb) said...

I am just so over this train wreck. Kate saying she does everything with her kids in mind is stupid. TLC is doing a great PR campaign to get viewership on Monday night. How sad on TLC how the picture of J&K hugging each other and now they are on separate ends.... I can honestly say that I am now divorcing Jon and Kate. I will not be buying or reading any stories in the magazines, I will not be on any gossip website in regards to these two, I will not watch ET, Insider, TMZ or any other show which promotes and exploits these two cash cows.I will not be watching TLC and their family exploitation shows, sadly this means that I will not watch my favorite reality show the Roloffs. I am finding that the more I read, watch, see about this two phoneys I get angry on a daily basis. I do not want to use up my energy on negative feelings. Sadly, this also means that I won't be coming to this blog anymore. But, I just want to commend you on the excellent job you are doing on how you "outed" this farce of a show. Without this website most all of these stories would not have come out. Kudos to GWOP. I know your intentions were honorable in regards to protecting those 8 beautiful children. Sadly, I know this couple is not going away soon and will be making headlines for a long time but I won't be privy to this mockery of reality t.v., marriage, family life. Thank You GWOP for all you do and God Speed in keeping the fire under the butts of these two KON ARTISTS!! God Bless you all.

delilahboyd said...

Kate's sentence structure never changes; therefore, it's easy to tell when someone else is pretending to be her.

Just for giggles, here's a link to a post on 15 celebrities with Kate Gosselin's "reverse mullet" hairstyle:

http://www.buzzfeed.com/mjs538/15-celebrities-that-look-hot-with-kate-gosselins

my9cats said...

Too literate.
Can't be Kate.

ImFrancie said...

Thank you, moderators. This is a very sensible way to deal with the latest creation of the Gosselin's PR machine, which is apparently now set to full-tilt spin.

I didn't believe for a second that Kate Gosselin was writing, let alone moderating, the blog. Heck, she probably hasn't even read it!

jb said...

Wow. If the comments on there are from actual real people then that is why this show will unfortunately never die. Over 150 people with glowing comments about how great she is, blah, blah?

Of course that whole blog and the associated comments just wreaks of a PR plant. "hey, let's build you up to be great again. We'll write a stupid blog and let people, err we'll, leave comments about it."

my9cats said...

BTW
on today's radaronline, Jodie and Kevin confirm Beth wrote the book, NOT KATE.
How that woman can look herself in the mirror is beyond comprehension. No conscience at all.

PLEAAAAAAASE said...

I have tried to submit negative comments and none of them have gone through. Hmmm, nothing but love pouring in for Kate Gosselin. Yeah not a PR stunt at all.

It screams desperate.

jennmo said...

I'm usually pretty neutral when it comes to the Gosselins, however I looked at Kate's "blog" today. Usually when I read comments people write on blogs, it drives me crazy because I am an English teacher and people use bad grammar and punctuation and there are always a million typos. In the comments I read, there were NO typos, no grammatical errors, etc. Therefore, I do not believe it is a genuine blog. I think it is a PR person creating "comments" to get some good Kate press out there.

twopeasinapod said...

Don't you think it is a little NARCISSISTIC to only have sugary, adoring comments only? (Sounds like someone else we know that is connected to Discovery and "always covers" for QFI)

AnotherLisa said...

Kate should blog about how Hannah is her favorite, Mady is her least fave, and that she is indifferent to the boys.

I just started to notice (thanks to this board) that in so many family photos, Hannah is in the prime central position nearest to the parents.

Bev said...

The blog by "Kate" is definitely fake. The TLC people are probably doing damage control but I'm sure they are also monitoring it to see how many negative comments they get versus good comments. They'd be stupid, otherwise, to think that this would help the show recover. Their bottom line is money. I don't think they'd try to salvage a show if the majority of the viewers are against it. I've watched the Table for 12 episodes and have thought that some of the comments and situations directly counter the Jon and Kate show (Like their mountain of laundry in the dining room and do they get stressed out about it? No!) Regardless, I gave my comment and am 100% positive it won't be "approved by the author"...but I gave my 2 cents in case they are watching.

SchmeckyGirl said...

I read all the comments and noticed they were all raving over Kate. Not one was negative.

I commented on the blog to see if they would print it. I didn't write anything mean... I truthfully said her children were adorable, etc. I also wished them a happy family again, etc. They printed that.

I also wrote that I was glad to see she was taking time out to spend more time with her children. They printed that too.

However, I wrote that they both need to spend more time with their children during these very important growing years. I wrote that I know there are other average families that are also away from their children but that doesn't mean it's okay. I added that since they have the means to be home with their children they should be. Both of them. On a regular basis. Not surprisingly they left that entire paragraph out.

I wonder if TLC is moderating the blog or if Kate is or if she has someone doing it for her and removing anything remotely negative.

Dunwoody Mom said...

What's the saying?

"Desperates times call for desperate measures".

Carrie said...

In the pictures from the party, does the blonde older girl and the dark haired boy look like Jodi's two older kids? And the two younger blonde boy and girl look like her two younger? Just asking because I thought they looked familiar.

HannahParent said...

All the postive comments- talk about giving Kate a bigger head than she already has.

Milehimama said...

Sorry, but it's hard to feel sorry for her. She had no help from the sitter so she had to handle the kids by herself?

Welcome to my world. And I homeschool, so all of them are here all the time! And yet, somehow, some way, miraculously, I manage.

Doesn't the production crew help at all?

I think who ever is writing this isn't actually a mother at all. "I instructed the kids to unbuckle, which they did very well"?

Be sure to watch the Premier! ::snark::

lancie said...

tallblonde wrote.....'I knew it wasn't Kate writing it as soon as I read it - there wasn't a single "Ummmmmmmmmmmm" in the blog! *LOL*'

The true test of whether Kate actually wrote it or not is if it starts with 'They love us......'

Teach Me to Be Still said...

OK, I admit, I wanted to see what she had to say for herself. I went to her blog and was doing OK until I got to the comment sections. ALL praise and support.....huh? Not one comment that is even slightly critical. What a scam! Such an obvious PR move if they won't allow ANY negative comments. Granted, perhaps they don't want blatant cruelty and harsh comments but not even ones that offer a true opinion, an honest concern for her family?? I'm done. Won't be visiting her "blog" any longer.....

*~*Nicole*~* said...

This is just wrong on so many levels. We have SEEN the pictures! He was "unexpectedly away." How convenient. And the title doesn't mention what a big day it is for the most important people in her life...oh wait, maybe it does. Instead of saying "We ignored the cameras and focused on how excited we were...." something along those lines, she says "it was just me and my posse..." Posse meaning the paps not the 'tups.
Why is there so much emphasis on all the paparazzi coverage? Even the most famous celebs rarely mention them. I know this is her PR team writing this, but how is this supposed to create a good image for her?? Very frustrating and, yeah, desperate.

SavetheSheeples said...

How pathetic.

Even more pathetic are the comments.

Natalie said...

Hmmmm... I still can't find the blog online. Wish I could read what everyone was talking about.

Wendy Bird said...

I do believe that Kate wrote that blog. She may have someone proofreading, but it is written in a very immature writing style (!!!!!,) that is similar to posts on their website.

Her attempts at humor are predictable and sophomoric; "Had you passed us, you may have thought we were a funeral procession. But no, it was just me and my posse, I mean paparazzi, and crew." and "We all held hands and made a train into the store quietly and efficiently while flashes from the ever present (and did I mention maddening?) paparazzi flashed until I thought I had developed sudden glaucoma."

She also uses cliches like; "...before I opened the van door to let the monkeys out of the barrel..." in attempt to be clever and cute, but fails miserably. It reads like an eighth-grader's writing assignment.

Kate is also using her blog to get back at Jon and to score sympathy points. A HUGE mistake if she is trying to appeal to an expanding new audience, because the general sentiment from those who have not followed this story from the beginning is that Kate's behavior toward Jon has been enough to justify anything he chooses to do.

Although her fans will be thrilled, as is noted by the messages that were allowed to be posted, this will not help her gain any new fans. As I and several other posters have mentioned, anyone who starts to follow the story now is not a fan or future fan. They will move on to the next celebrity train wreck and never look back.

Perhaps Kate is attempting to prove her writing skills to potential publishers of future books (especially now that Kevin and Jodi have supported Beth's statement that she wrote Multiple Blessings.) Whatever her reasoning, Kate will not stick with this. Writing does not come easily to her and she has ulterior motives - presenting herself as she wants to be perceived, not as she really is. This will prove to be too much work for an exhausted Kate.

My prediction is that this blog will fade away, just like the favorite scriptures portion of their website.

ispendtoomuchtimehere said...

It is poorly written. Now I see why she couldn't write her own "books".

cassandrau said...

Okay, so I was looking at her blog, which clearly isn't her at all. I mean, it's obviously just a bunch of crap. She and Jon "got their wires crossed." Uhm, no. You just didn't want to be around each other.

Anyway, I'm rambling. What I was going to say is, in the blog she mentions something about "The Toys 'R' Us" episode. This triggered something in me. Does anyone else remember when Jon said something about "well that was in Season..." and Kate got SO MAD and said, "We don't measure our lives in seasons, we measure them by years like everyone else."?

Well, it seems like she's sure measuring her life by seasons now. I guess the tables have turned.

lancie said...

I wonder if the comment:

"Will Beth be adding to your blog? We liked her writing so much in Multiple Blessings."

You know - truth wrapped in a compliment? LOL

NoBull said...

Quote from blog:

"Due to the overwhelming popularity of our show, our kids haven't been in a store for quite some time. This was going to be A HUGE TREAT...."

J&K claim they do the show for the kids and to give them opportunities they never had. To give the children a better quality of life. This comment from her blog contradicts that. Interesting.

met said...

I hope she actually reads the comments and thinks that everyone in the world loves her! It'll be that much harder when she falls into anomomity.

It looks to me like Jon's PR person is doing a much better job than Kate's. I think hiding out and not blabbing is the best course of action right now.

Sal said...

The blog is a bunch of PR fluff. Honestly.
The blog is there for one reason and one reason only. It is there to pat the sheeple on their collective backs and to tell them all the lies they believe are a good thing. Keep the sheeple happy and the show can successfully continue. (In Kate's twisted mind)

Jon was unexpectedly away = I have misplace the key to the room above the garage where I keep Jon locked for his own safety.

EandKmom said...

Just read the comments--whoever wrote as "Baby Mama" (obviously NOT the real one...) was HILARIOUS!! "wonderfully wonderful"!!! Bravo whoever you are. I can't believe the moderators couldn't tell that was snark!!

***********************************
Yes!! I thought that too...she is thinking of her personal memories in terms of episodes. What saddens me the most, if the parents both do this, what will be the impact on the kids? Many of their childhood expreiences ...videotaped, edited and commented on by their parents and a corporation. Then these childhood experiences are broadcast, chewed up and digested by the American public.


I also have to say if anyone thinks that Table for 12 or any other family "reality" show is better...it isn't. Still exploitation of children, (no matter what the personalities involved.)

Ms.Peach said...

I just emailed Discovery Viewer Relations regarding the fake blog. I wanted to express my displeasure.

http://extweb.discovery.com/viewerrelations

silimom said...

Okay, first off, so much for my moratorium on all things J&K. Just when I think I'm done, they do something else that irks me and I feel the need to comment on it because I just can't believe people can be so (irresponsible, selfish, short sighted...the list goes KON).

So, now for the blog. Two options, as far as I can see it - Kate wrote it herself, which wouldn't surprise me because I don't think she could write her way out of a paper bag. If only she had begun it with "It was a dark and stormy night," she'd have been a shoo in for this years Bulwer-Lytton contest.

Option 2 is that some poor PR person was given this assignment and told "Now, remember, she's not the sharpest tack in the box so make sure you dumb it down."

Either way, it's a groan and an "Oh please! Spare me."

And as for "no help from the sitter" and this being a "treat" for the kids because she doesn't take them shopping with her:

I have to admit, I tend to try and do my grocery, etc. shopping sans kids sometimes because I've got a big family, alot I have to get done in a day, and by myself I can get in an out very quickly. However, I also know it's important for my kids to come along some times because that's how they learn the skills they'll need as adults to survive on their own. They need to see just how one goes to a grocery store, how one interacts with store personnel, how one shops. It also allows them to learn they can't have everything they see and opens up opportunities to talk (in an age appropriate manner) about family finances and how mom and dad make what we have stretch. So I make a point of taking them, usually one on one, a couple times a week (we have a big family and I go to the store several times a week). This also gives me one on one time with each kid. Again, we try and show them that together time doesn't have to involve doing something that costs a lot of money. It's about spending time together.

No one has to be a perfect to be a parent. But you do have to engage with your kids. It's a pretty simple formula - talk to your kids, play with your kids, model good behavior for your kids and you'll end up with good kids. Why is always the simplest things that we have the most trouble with?

mirele said...

I rather doubt they're going to publish my comment, since I included several criticisms and ended it with "Free the Gosselin Eight!" However, I did put my Real Name on it and invited the screener to Google me. I know what it's like to lose some of my privacy by pushing myself into the public discourse on certain issues. Kate, at the very least, should have expected that this was going to happen, particularly since her actions do not match up with the image that she's projecting. But I think she thought she could have all the benefits and none of the drawbacks of fame and fortune...WRONG!

Karen said...

I have to say I used to be a big fan but as she started to be more and more disrespectful to Jon and fight in front of the kids saying daddy's wrong for whatever. That's a HUGE no-no in family counseling. She needs to get her rear in there but it sounds like that isn't going to happen.
They live in our town, go to our church and the kids go to our school. I can't tell you what a nasty person she is for real! We ALL stay away from her. Jon on the other hand is a bit shy but is at least nice to people.
I just pray that for the kids sake Kate gets her head together.

SavetheSheeples said...

Natalie - the blog is located at TLCs site.

Jacsamic said...

Mods- Thank You so very much for your hard work, professionalism and consistent pursuit of fairness while giving all of us a place to comment, state our opinions, conclusions, ideas and so very important our concern for eight beautiful children.

Yep, the blog that is being created for Kate is an embarrassing attempt for damage control.

What a sophmoric PR company she has. My guess is she could not get a reputable, established PR company to represent this farce.

Bleh.

met said...

Ok I had to post on her blog! My name is marci (not really) I told her that my husband loves her hair and I'm getting it cut just like her. I also added some crap that she is the bestest mom in the world. It's just too tempting to post dribble.

Sadie said...

BTW
on today's radaronline, Jodie and Kevin confirm Beth wrote the book, NOT KATE.
How that woman can look herself in the mirror is beyond comprehension. No conscience at all.

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

To be fair, Beth's name is on the book so she did get credit for her writing. Although, I do agree that Kate could have acknowledged Beth's contribution in her interviews for the book. However, I don't believe that Kate did nothing since there are things in the book that Beth could not have known. She didn't even know Kate until the babies were born.

Lisa6Kids said...

Oh boo-hoo, she had to take her kids to the store by Herself. I do it every day with six kids. Maybe it's not 8 but her youngest kids are 5 now. 5 is easy! Going out with my six that include a toddler and a baby and a set of twins (plus a couple more. ;)) is still not that hard. I even took all six for blood tests without even the tiniest scene. Since Kate always brags on herself I decided to brag on MY self a little. I am just so tired of the "I had to do it MYSELF" attitude. HEr kids are getting older, it's not hard anymore! When she takes them out as teenagers will she still be blogging that she had to do it herself?

Cherier1 said...

SARCASM said...
LOL. I just know other people are doing the same thing as me on Khate's "not-a-blog", for example:.

5/21/2009 7:08 AM

That was me ;) Glad you got the sarcasm. Miss Kate didn't. Let's watch and see if your post goes thru. Gotta have some fun with this debacle.

freethegosselinsfromkate said...

I agree, it is poorly written. I think Kate wrote it. She wants to play martyr and no one is allow to post any negative comments about her. The narcissist in her will not have it.
The poor Gosselin children and even, poor Jon. I can only imagine the hell it must be having this woman control their lives. I hope the "animals" in the media keep up the heat on Katie Irene to show the truth about this Monster Mom.

TandLMommy28 said...

Wow, what a joke. Seriously? She decided to brave going to the store alone with HER OWN CHILDREN? Wow, she's one heck of a super hero. My goodness, they are your children for goodness sake, not a pack of wild dogs. Most of us do that every day of the week. I went to a college where most of the kids came from families of at least six kids, most many more (a conservative Christian college) and none of their mothers acted like they were super heroes for taking their own children to the store. Good grief.

TandLMommy28 said...

Some of the comments are really, really funny. They sound positive but they are dripping with sarcasm.

Paige said...

Tee hee, I just tried to leave a comment about the date of the party and how Kate probably wasn't home on their actual birthday. It wasn't too vicious, so maybe this one will slip through the cracks and get "approved."

ManicNarcissism said...

I don't know for sure but I thought the day the party city pics came out it showed Jon at the konpound looking through binoculars at the paps and standing with security guys. Maybe that was on the day she went to target and I have it confused.

Was flipping and caught the very end of cutting room floor which I had never seen. It was where they went to the beach for the first time. The little kids had life jackets on and on the back it said "konfidence"

I'm not joking.

KiSSy said...

I think it's down.

???

ClevelandRocks said...

I guess whoever wrote this hasn't watched all of the episodes. The kids haven't been to a store since the Toys R Us episode? Guess they missed the St. Jude's shopping trip.

tigerfan said...

Kate's blog is a perfect example of what the author in the Detroit News article was trying to convey!!
Kate attemps to blog about her role as a mother and 'spending time with her children' but there exists a huge void in her expression of passion and FEELING with respect the time spent with her CHILDREN but MUCH focus on what OTHERS see and think ie, the paparrazi, the people passing her in traffic, the absence of Jon and the baby sitter that day, ONLY getting 3 hours of sleep and having to prepare breakfast, play with the children etc. As the author of the Detroit News article mentioned, Kate speaks of her life and experiences in terms of 'what is in it for me' or ' I gave of myself therefore I am entitled to.....'. Kate's words ( in blog text and when she speaks before an audience) are nothing more than rehearsed verbage, words, sorely lacking in PASSION and COMPASSION. Kate's expression is one sided, with a ring of contempt, and do not extend beyond that of a self serving purpose. It does not require an individual to be in attendance at one of Kate's speaking engagements to get the overall jist of what the author of the Detroit News article is trying to convey. All one has to do is read Kate's blog. The 'words' speak for themselves!!

Paige said...

I wonder if TLC will be forced to post some of the negative comments if they get swamped?

katethrowseveryoneunderthebus said...

Kate's being made into a martyr for going to the store with her own kids (and letting them out of the house for a change) with a bodyguard/boyfriend, assistant most likely, and the film crew. The kids are 5 and 8 years old. Good grief! Since when did she play with her kids outside?

Tiffany said...

I checked out her fake blog last night. All of those comments were so over the top and ridiculous. Although the ones mocking her were pretty funny. I have a feeling a lot of them weren't really written by real "fans". Anyone would realize, whether they are on her side or not, that there are WAY more negative comments coming through there than positive ones. Just for fun, I wrote a negative (but true) one. Keeps them busy.

concerned said...

If Jon wasn't home, and she didn't have a sitter, who was watching Maddie and Cara when she took the tups to party city?

jb said...

The fact that it was actually written on 5/16 but not published until 5/20 just screams PHONY. Obviously some PR dolt came up with the bright idea for her to blog about something to help get people thinking about something else besides marital problems and tabloids. But since she doesn't actually do anything during her normal days they had to go back in time to find something worth writing about it. If you can even call it that.

Milehimama said...

I write for a living (web content). I don't think it sounds like a 4th grader. I think it sounds like a "blog by committee".

There is no voice, because so many people had a hand in chronicling the adventures of Kate + 8.

Frankly, it reads like one of those full page "articles" about miracle drugs, best tomato plants, etc. that are really advertisements.

From the blog:
So, once our cart was brimming with delightful things to make any child go wild Doesn't that sound like ad copy to you?

I wonder how much Party City paid TLC.

AmyC said...

Ok, AmyC here. I just tried to post on that blog - heavy with sarcasm! Let's see if they post it! I signed it AmyC, but it coiuld have easily been something BM would say.

silimom said...

I think about this song a lot while I'm raising my own kids because it's so true. It's from the musical "Into the Woods" - Children will Listen. I hope it's something that both Jon and Kate would read and remember.

How do you say to your child in the night
Nothing is all black but then nothing is all white?
How do you say it will all be alright
When you know that it mightnt be true?
What do you do?

Careful the things you say,
Children will listen.
Careful the things you do,
Children will see.
And learn.
Children may not obey,
But children will listen.
Children will look to you
For which way to turn,
To learn what to be.
Careful before you say,
Listen to me.
Children will listen.

Careful the wish you make,
Wishes are children.
Careful the path they take,
Wishes come true,
Not free.
Careful the spell you cast,
Not just on children.
Sometimes the spell may last
Past what you can see
And turn against you...

Careful the tale you tell.
That is the spell.
Children will listen...

How can you say to a child who's in flight,
Don't slip away and I won't hold so tight?
What can you say that no matter how slight wont be misunderstood?
What do you leave to your child when you're dead
Only what ever you put in its head
Things that your mother and father had said
Which were left to them too.
Careful what you say, children will listen
Careful you do it too, children will see and learn.
Oh!

Guide them but step away,
Children will glisten.
Temper with what is true
And children will turn,
If just to be free.
Careful before you say,
Listen to me.
Children will listen...
Children will listen!
Children, children will listen

If Kate wrote the blog & is approving posts............she sure is sleepin' late :-)

Sheesh! said...

I liked how she mentioned in her "blog" that she was coming "from my last speaking/book signing tour for quite awhile". If that doesn't smell of bad PR, I don't know what does! Obviously they are trying to address all her days away from the kids. Nice.

Another Shade of Grey said...

From the CBS article,

"But Michelle Tan, a staff writer at People magazine, said Kate does the show for the sake of her children. 'She'll continue to do the show as long as her children benefit from it,' Tan said, 'and as long as it never compromises their happiness."

Ummmmmm, and Michelle Tan knows this because?????? Kate told her???? So that must mean it's true????? and Michelle is qualified to make this assessment because???? She's a writer?????

If Jon wasn't home, and she didn't have a sitter, who was watching Maddie and Cara when she took the tups to party city?


...they went WITH...they were in the photos too.

Babs said...

What a joke. If her Highness really wants to see what a proper blog looks like (other than this one...excellent job Moderators) she should check out one of my most favoritest (she would understand that word) authors,Jen Lancaster. She's a REAL author and has been on a press tour for the past few weeks promoting her latest offering...she's been traveling sans bodyguard and actually (gasp) interacts with her fans. (Plus her books are hilarious and she writes them herself.)

Larse said...

It said that Jon was unexpectedly away....yeah..I have one child and my husband and I know where each other is at all times. We also plan ahead for things such as parties and whatnot. Unexpectedly where was he?

SuzyQ said...

She "started to feed breakfast" - what in the world does THAT mean? She fed breakfast what?
This has got to be Kates writing! LOL!

Why does she need help from a babysitter to go to Party City and gets party stuff?! That makes no sense in my mind what-so-ever. And from the pap photos it looks like she had tons of help - from a film crew and a bodyguard!

I'm sure the kids dislike the pap flashes just as much as they dislike the ever present studio lighting from filming - puh,lease!
The only reason that she is bitchin about the paps so much is that she isn't getting paid for those photos!

The comments are most definitely not real - we all misspell and type out words incorrectly at times like "teh" for "the" and you can see none of that in the comments - besides the obvious fact that none of the comments have a hint of negativity to them. Just one more stupid PR stunt!

Milehimama said...

Frankly, it reads like one of those full page "articles" about miracle drugs, best tomato plants, etc. that are really advertisements.

From the blog:
So, once our cart was brimming with delightful things to make any child go wild.

Doesn't that sound like ad copy to you?
* * *
* * *

I hadn't thought of it as ad copy, but I definitely thought it sounded fake. I mean, who talks like that in real life. I have never discussed shopping with any of my friends, and said "my cart was brimming" with anything, delightful or otherwise!

It's hilarious to me that TLC is so insecure that they won't even allow the slightest hint of criticism or less than 100% support for the show on their blog. If it makes them feel happier to live in their pretend world with Kate - so be it. But declining viewer numbers don't lie, and that's what advertisers look at, not phony messages on a blog run by TLC to whitewash the crazy that is Kate Gosselin.

Jennifer said...

By far the funniest comment on that blog is the fake Baby Mama one encouraging Kate to keep her "chins" (plural) up. HA!

Marie said...

We all know that Kate has stated in the past that she needs LOTS of sleep. So, by saying that "she" only got three hours of sleep, we know that the REAL Kate didn't write that blob. Most probably it's BM behind it.

NotWatchingtheBlogsaremoreentertaining said...

Had to go on to see the comments-

Even if TLC and Kate wanted to keep it one sided they forgot about the Google ads.

Had to have a little fun today (sorry- I did add to the counter...). We'll see if this one posts:

OMG Kate- you are a total saint! The party store with 8 kids- are u insane? I don't know how u do it all-shopping, cooking homemade organic meals, laundry, driving kids everywhere, and shopping with them all while keeping your patience! And you manage to always look fab- you are so tanned and thin and gorgous with that awesome hair. You are supermom and wife no doubt. I need lessons from u girl!

I just wrote two extremely negative comments and then one absolutely gushing comment. What a joke!

So, here is what I posted on Kate's "blog". I KNOW it won't be posted, but someone has to read it, right? ;-)

"Um, this is the strangest blog entry. Why are rundown of events like it was a checklist? If this is what is a bestselling author writes, then I guess I am glad I didn't purchase the books. Good job, PR people, on writing this blog entry."

From the blog:
So, once our cart was brimming with delightful things to make any child go wild.

What Kate FAILS to express is how her CHILDREN enjoyed (or SHE enjoyed for that matter) the experience of filling the cart with birthday party items. The 'things' in the cart are irrelevant to how her CHILDREN reacted or enjoyed the overall experience of spending time with their mother! I absolutely agree that aspects of Kate's blog reads like an over exaggerated sales pitch. If its hyped up enough some one just might actually believe enough to 'buy' it.

Treece said...

Sooo, assuming I went to the right blog site, which I assume I did since it was "easy to find", they have a poll going on about Kevin & Jodi's timing on speaking.

How many people (besides the ones here who suspected for long), would have believed them? So many people would have shunned them (more than now), for possible being "upset" about being removed from the show, and are trying to hurt Jon & Kate. Because I personally would have. There is a time and place for everything and I think this was the right time to add some truth to these possible allegations. and regardless of people's integrity, I think Aunt Jodi is the last person I would accuse of spewing lies. She obviously loves those kids, so everyone speaking to the magazine are inhabited by the green-eyed monster now and looking for money themselves? Please. It does NOT make the money go 'round, and for right now Jodi is the most plausible source out there in my opinion.

Lou in UK said...

I posted this on her blog - even though I know it won't be posted someone has to read it right? Anyway it made me feel better lol

Hilarious! As if Kate wrote this pile of PR! Do you think we are stupid? Oh and for your information, my 6 kids don't need to be bribed to behave, why don't you try actually spending some time with them off camera, instead of swanning round the country with your lies.
Kate you are a terrible excuse for a woman. Shame on you, you won the jackpot and then sold it to the highest bidder.

jill said...

Okay...

I think we need to have code words...that way we know if they are checking this site!

Pretty mama= the worst mama on earth!

"Kate, you are such a pretty mama!"

Jon and Kate are great= stop exploiting your children

Think about it...we could all use these terms and at some point they would see a trend!

WB said...

Kate's blog keeps saying there are new posts, but they don't show up. The most recent one was from last night at like 8 p.m.

Hmm, I guess I just came across a fan blog because I found another blog that plainly says: Kate's Blog....Naughty Me...Anywhoo, Like mentioned I can't imagine she actually has time to do this herself, but it kind of sounds like stuff she'd say...I mean she DOES have time to read viewer email so maybe she talks and someone types? Who knows.

Snowed said...

This one is my fav:



I am a huge fan of your show, I love watching the teamwork between you and Jon. I truly admire the way you two work together. Your show has even inspired my husband to be more of a teamplayer.

There is no way that Kate wrote that blog. The wording doesn't even sound like Kate. I think that BabyMama is trying really hard to make things seem better since Kate is going down-hill really fast.

sugarjay said...

It also allows them to learn they can't have everything they see and opens up opportunities to talk (in an age appropriate manner) about family finances and how mom and dad make what we have stretch.

I guess that explains why Kate was out alone with Alexis the other day. It was probably to make her pretend blog more beleivable. If she really wanted to throw people for a loop she should have taken Joel.

marypoppins said...

Hambone said... I do think Kate wrote it. #1 It's a very cheesy blog post .....who the hell ever talks like that. I am a teacher ( I can't help but critique it )it REALLY looked like something a 4th grader would have written for a state writing test. It was in no way natural and reeked of over-trying.

I just had to comment on her blog - this is beyond sad. I am just as disturbed by the amount of people who are praising Kate as I am by her actions. Hopefully they are just being generated by her PR people.

"Jon was unexpectedly away. We mistakenly got our wires crossed." Seriously? Does she think people are that stupid?

Midwest Teacher said...

I'm so mad at myself for reading it b/c I didn't think about TLC counting the "hits".

I have to agree that PR is either writing the comments, or they're all in sarcasm b/c I can't imagine anyone still believing all this.

Also, I'm sure they're getting plummeted with negative comments. THEY BETTER!

Kate, you are such an amazing woman. You put yourself and your family out in the public eye, and don't care what anyone thinks! No matter the ramifications, you will continue the show!

coyote-38609 said...

As far as Kate's blog, you people don't honestly believe that Kate reads the blog or even writes the blog. Just look at the writing style! She couldn't care less about what's written in blogs because it has no affect on her. TLC, on the other hand, wants to keep pumping away at the public to whip up the frenzy among lovers and haters--they've been very successful at what they've done in the past. __It seems the haters far out weigh the lovers in number. It will be interesting to see the ratings on Monday since the haters I've heard from have sworn off the show and will NOT watch. I, personally, suspect that the Gosselins have been divorced for a long time. I think we'll see **Kate raising the children by herself on TV, while Jon raises them in real life.** I really think that's why they purchased the house with separate quarters. I also think that Jon will care for his children as their Dad, but in essence is "the elusive nanny" and will be paid. TLC is ONLY interested in ratings--thus the more they keep people guessing and interested in any way, shape, or form in J&K, the better their ratings.

KatieInOhio said...

planey_janey said...

I *do* think Kate wrote it, and the clincher was "instructed them to unbuckle their seat belts, which they did very well." Kate uses "which they did very well" over and over when she's discussing some action she's told the tups to do.

Arieslikekate said...

renee said...

it doesn't surprise me that they won't post negative comments. because if you remember that one episode where she said that when they are reading emails, they immediately delete anything remotely negative. they can't face the truth. they would rather live in their bubble.

6kidsin pa said...

About the "crossed wires" and Jon being "unexpectedly gone"... I guess this is proof that they are no longer sharing a bedroom (did you notice she said she missed her kids, but did not mention missing her husband?). If she was, and got home so late at night, you'd have to think that she would have seen him when she got in. Then she goes on to say that she had to serve breakfast? Guess Jon wasn't around then either. You kind of have to wonder who was watching the kids all night (probably the babysitter which is why she had no help with breakfast or at Party City). Those "not a nannies" sure put in a lot of hours for the "not a mommy" and "not a daddy"!

disgusted said...

How insecure a human being do you have to be to write a blog about yourself and then filter out all the negative comments?

...and no, I dont think Kate wrote the blog. (And whoever's writing it for her didnt do a very good job. I hate wanna-be bloggers.)Just like I dont think she wrote any book. It's her majesty's PR team working overtime to clean up her image...and moderating the comments so that the queen doesnt how to find out what it is that the public really thinks of her.

Phah! I am done with all this hypocrisy. End the show already!

Elle said...

Well, what do you know, they updated the comments on the blog. They are letting about one in one hundred negative comments in, in my estimate. Here are my favorites:

-Hi Kate. I just wanted to tell you that "if loving you is wrong, i dont wanna be right!!!!"

-Hey, that hairdo is fabulous. I wish my girlfriend had thick hair so she could have it too. Love that the kids got a fun trip out to get their birthday party supplies. They look so happy in the pictures!!!!!!

-Keep up the fabulously fabulous work, Kate!!!!!!!

-Maybe if you stop doing the show the paparazzi would stop following you? I mean if you are really sick of them that might be a solution. Just a thought.

-Alright Kate! I am so glad you are writing this blog, it gives me a chance to throw my support your way, there are negetive blogs out there saying things about you and I just want you to know Kate, I want to be just like you, they say you are a shrew, I want to be just like you, they say you exploit your kids, I want to be just like you, they say you abuse your husband, I want to be just like you, they say you kicked your family and friends to the curb, I want to be just like you, they say your is hair freaky, I want to be just like you, they say you are money hungry and narcissistic, I want to be just like you. Kate you have been such a role modle for all us young women, you truely have the gift of finding out how to be a success in all areas of life. Your girls will never forget the lessons you have taught them in life, wow, I only hope that you will still be allowing the world to invade the precious privacy of your home 10 years from now just so we can see how wonderful your kids are going to turn out.

-Lordy be! Eight kids? Paparazzi? You are Christlike in your ability to perserver through harsh trials! I swear, I wish I knew some as amazingly awesome in my own life! I can only pray you continue to handle your many trials with your winning personality and generous nature!

-I just want to say, if you agree to do a show, especially reality at that, you put yourself and your family/children in the way of paparazzi. You should know that it would come about sooner or later, and I feel sorry for your children that they have to be put through it. Sorry that you are so religious, yet your marriage is in shambles and you do not want to work on it, I feel alot of what you are about, is fake, and you don't live by your faith or your own words in which you preach to the rest of the world.

-Kate, you are such an amazing woman. You put yourself and your family out in the public eye, and don't care what anyone thinks! No matter the ramifications, you will continue the show! It is truly inspiring to see a woman so dedicated to her career, even to the detriment of her family! Kudos! Luv ya!

Nessa said...

The last comment I see over there is "you are the BEST mother in the entire world! keep it up." Good grief, how can that not be sarcasm? I'm laughing so much at the comments my 5-year-old wants to know what's so funny.

dogloverof4 said...

Kate's blog is just ridiculous. Really I can't believe that people think this crap is the truth. I went on this morning and made a left my comments which I doubt will post. I wish people would open their eyes to this BS.
Love this site by the way

MJC said...

Love the blog, guys!

I've been sort of sadistically fascinated with the whole KON and fam since I first saw it-- kinda like a car wreck on the highway, you don't want to look, but you do. Found your blog a few months ago and was thrilled to see that many sane, rational people were having the same morbid fascination feelings as I was (and were just as disturbed for the kids!).

To the topic at hand- FYI, esp. for those who want to see more comments on the fake blog, click on the words "comment feed" where it says "you can subscribe to the COMMENT FEED on this post" right at the top of all the comments.Subscribe. Go to the feed. If you click on an individual comment, it will show you all the surrounding ones. I can't figure out if it is showing ALL the comments, or just the ones they have approved for posting.

One thing I noticed- They must be reading GWOP, because after the people here were commenting about the lack of negative comments, suddenly negative comments were posted over there. STRANGE conincidence, don't ya think??

SARCASM- your post is up over there! Follow above steps to find it.

disgusted said...

While I think some of the sarcastic comments on kate's blog are hilarious...ROFLMAO @ "If lovin' you is wrong, I don't wanna be right"..hehehehehe...I do think though that leaving any comments there at all still benefits the blog, and Kate. Just like negative publicity is still publicity, sarcastic comments are comments nonetheless and contribute toward the total number of hits to the website. So instead of even leaving sarcastic comments, I say we boycott her blog entirely. No comments. No publicity. No hits. No more blog.

Milehimama said...

It will be interesting to see the ratings on Monday since the haters I've heard from have sworn off the show and will NOT watch.I'm not sure that actually matters, unless they have a Nielsen box.

Do they track DVRing a show now?

mcs said...

I do not believe that Kate has any right whatsoever to complain about paparazzi. She exploits her family on television every week. How is being constantly photographed any different? I can assure her that the kids probably don't think anything of it; just another camera. I am quite confused about what she wants. She refuses to end the show because she thinks its good for her family, but then she turns around and wails about the attention. What did you expect would happen, Kate? This is what you asked for.

Kate had her birthday on March 28th.

Garden of England said...

HI, I accidently found your blog a few days ago and am absolutely facinated by it.
Here in the United Kingdom we are on series (season?) three where things in the family's life seem to be reasonably normal if a little regimented as i'm sure they need to be in order to manage that many children.
I can't believe that things are going to change that quickly, although we have just had the 'chewing gum' episode which was interesting!
What new house? What bodyguard?
I shall watch future episodes with interest.

No name said...

I have SO much to say about Kate, I wouldn't knowwhere to begin. Most of the posts on here seem to pretty much sum it up.

Something that I noticed recently is how truly awful she is even in the reruns. She complained that the woman who sent the two girls shirts for their Birthday sent long sleeve T's and it's "90 degrees out." She also had something negative to say about the kid's eye doctor. Way to undermind a doctor on national television. And, most recently, her comment about their solar panels. Her comment floored me: "the world has to end sometime. . .it's saving money that I'm most concerned about." Can't she fake, for one second, being gracious and socially aware?

As far as her comment in People about "not being able to go back". . . of course she can. She's not Madonna. If the show went off the air, America would forget about her in two days. Clearly, the kids future is secure if they were able to purchase a $1,000,000 plus home.

Kete, the show is no longer for your kids. . . .it's for you. Enough is enough.

And ENOUGH with that ridiculous hairdo while you're at it. . .

Michelle in Michigan said...

What a joke! Do they really think people will believe that. Those are awfully big words for Kate to write and none of them are made up and UM, UM, UM...she didn't even pause in her Um, sentences. Um..ya know.

GAWD what a trip!

she is so far out in left field and TLC is right there with her. Sigh...poor sheeples. To think that Jon was "unexpectedly away". I am sure he was. Probably locked in the garage.

what's even funnier is that those comments are probably from TLC staff. LOLOLOLOL...poor fools!

Her blog is pure BS. We all know she can't even speak without making up her own words. Any word can be made new by adding -ish to it.

BTW, I looked for the pic of her and Jon on the couch but couldn't find it. But I did come across one where she is in a magenta top standing with Hannah and Joel. Whoa! Her, um, figure still has the price tags on it...

I just don't know how you do it, girl! I remember one episode where you said you have to sleep a lot and on the first special you said you don't even get out of bed before eight, so to do all that on three hours of sleep, wow!!!

I think it is just so fabulously fabulous that you have a blog, and was so glad to hear the tups unbuckled their seat belts very well! You are such a pretty mamma! I hope Jon gets a blog too. It would be great to read about the things he does with the kids, too. Did you make the cake for the party in the video I saw? What organic cake mix did you use? I have a Whole Foods two hours away and could go there and get a mix. I might get my hair cut like yours when I go to the big city. Mine’s real thick too, thickly thick and it would probably do good.

Milehimama,

Good point. I'd almost forgotten how they actually calculate the ratings.

I do not believe that Kate has any right whatsoever to complain about paparazzi. She exploits her family on television every week. How is being constantly photographed any different? I can assure her that the kids probably don't think anything of it; just another camera. I am quite confused about what she wants. She refuses to end the show because she thinks its good for her family, but then she turns around and wails about the attention. What did you expect would happen, Kate? This is what you asked for.
***********************************
ITA! It's painfully clear, watching the episodes, that Kate is extremely contradictory in what she says and does...quick example: she tells Jon in the episode where he cooks the Korean dinner, 'you're not a REAL cook if you have to use a recipe' and yet what is her next book...a cookbook! I think Kate makes up her rules as she goes along, and a lot of what she says has to do with her control issues, that's why the contradictions are so obvious....she craves attention, but she must be in control of it...also, appearances are extremely important to her...remember when Jon took the boys to the golf course? She argued with him over what outfits they would wear, (who cares, it's a golf course!) and if I'm not mistaken, Jon was taking the outside temperature into consideration and the boys' comfort, she was not, she was just focusing on their appearance, not comfort or the temperature...

Niki said...

The more you head over there to read or post comments, the more advertising dollars you give to TLC. The more hits they get the more money they make. It's almost as bad as watching the show.

I won't ever be looking at that blog again.

WittyandFun said...

This was just hilarious....especially the thickly thick hair comment. LOLOLOL :-) I noticed the stars are down to 2 which rates her blog as boring. Oh yes, Laughter is good for the soul.

HA... I just put this trying to be as sarcastic as I could:
You are so lucky to be with your kids all the time. I have to work unfortunately, so it seems like I never get to see my 2 kids. I'd love to have more, but with the economy like it is, I can't afford it. You and Jon have the perfect life and perfect children! I love watching the show!"

hopefully it will make it...

No name said...

Something that I noticed recently is how truly awful she is even in the reruns. She complained that the woman who sent the two girls shirts for their Birthday sent long sleeve T's and it's "90 degrees out." She also had something negative to say about the kid's eye doctor. Way to undermind a doctor on national television. And, most recently, her comment about their solar panels. Her comment floored me: "the world has to end sometime. . .it's saving money that I'm most concerned about." Can't she fake, for one second, being gracious and socially aware?* * *
* * *
I have noticed the same thing. If anyone were to look back on some of the older episodes, whenever Kate talks about the gifts received from fans, there is always a dig or derogatory comment thrown in for good measure. She can never simply say a few gracious words of thanks and leave it at that. She also has to make a comment that highlights some sort of problem with the gift.

It's unpleasant to watch the re-runs, but sometimes watching them knowing what I do now, so many things jump out that I didn't notice the first time around. It's clear from very nearly the start of the series, that Kate has some serious issues and an unpleasant personality disorder.

I stopped watching, but while flipping through the channels I caught part of Joelgate. This one scene stood out.

When Jon comes home and enters the kitchen and asks how everything was, Kate immediately starts off with Joel vomited all over his comforter, he is a vomitous boy, no more comforters.

Can you imagine coming home from work and asking about your sick kids and your wife is carrying on about a comforter and she had to clean a comforter?

Maybe I can make up an entry. Here goes:-

After breakfast the children and I all held hands and made a train and strolled quietly and efficiently into the garden. There I instructed them to gather wild flowers to adorn themselves with-which they did very well.

Hannah gave me a flower which i tucked behind my ear. I heard Alexis whisper to the other children "her a pretty princess"

Katie said...

well, there is a video of them sitting on the couch together so its not faked. It might be photo shopped, but he really is sitting there

Barb said...

I wish I was creative, but I'm beat tonight. Has anyone seen a type of comment that appears to be a compliment, but the words in capital letters really send the message. For example,

How could anyone hate KATE? She IS not EVIL but a loving mom. I would think Jon AND their children would never see her as GREEDY.

Do you get it? Anyone good at this type of back handed compliment?

Anny said...

Posting sarcastic or mocking comments actually will have an effect, and may even discourage Discovery from continuing that farce of a blog - because the moderators will see the ratio of "positive" to negative comments.

Slamming the blog early and hard may cause it to die a fast death, no matter what the moderators actually let through onto the website.

Just make sure that your sarcasm is REALLY evident!

I will tune in for Kevin and Jodi but you couldn't pay me enough money to watch ANYTHING on TLC. I even stopped watching "What Not To Wear" because I don't want to see commercials.

Why is it OK with them that men are obsessed with their kids???(some)Men have jobs. Jobs supply money. Money is a reason to pimp out your kids. After all, all us "jealous haters" would sell our kids, right? Yeah, whatever . . .

It seems to me that if the fans really love this family that they would want them to stop filming. The fact that they just "can't wait!" until Monday night totally creeps me out. They need to WAKE UP!!!!

dede02 said...

Has anyone else tried to post a negative comment on TLC'S website? IT WILL NOT BE POSTED!!!! I honestly never do this kind of thing, but this just ticks me off! All the other comments are "i love your hair!", "Kate, how do you do it?", & "Kate, you are such a role model!". I basically said, "If you children's birthday is so special, why did you not stay home & celebrate them on their actual birthday???? & I also told her I am so sorry you had to take care of your own kids by yourself! I am going to go back & post a positive comment & I bet it will be posted! Also, as for the other poster that said now that they look back & see how Kate was all along, (ungrateful, condescending, etc) i agree! She has never been any different.

GWOP this post - 171 comments

So, so funny!!! I've been reading this blog for about 9 months now and lots of other Gosselin sites,
never have I seen the positive comments outnumber the negative comments. Never! TLC must be desperate. Kate you need to schedule a news conference to announce your blog! GWOP will always have a lot of truth, your blog a lot of KON...

ThePaginator said...

To the topic at hand- FYI, esp. for those who want to see more comments on the fake blog, click on the words "comment feed" where it says "you can subscribe to the COMMENT FEED on this post" right at the top of all the comments.Subscribe. Go to the feed. If you click on an individual comment, it will show you all the surrounding ones. I can't figure out if it is showing ALL the comments, or just the ones they have approved for posting.
This totally worked and I'm now reading all the negative comments!! Yippee! This is getting good.

On Kate's blog if you click on Comments "You can follow this conversation by subscribing to the comment feed for this post."
Then click on the top hit in blue and it will bring up all the messages. I was not getting all the messages that were being posted until I did this. Surprisingly there are several negative comments...you have to read closely. There is one about us (GWOP),one about how the blog is fake, and so forth and so on. Hope this helps.

fedupelle said...

there's no doubt that this one won't get through those mods, but I've simply HAD IT-
Kate, if you wanted to give your children a spectacular, memorable birthday (i do realize you were to busy to hang with them on their actual day) you should have let them wake up when they felt like it, let them sit where they wanted (please tell me they aren't still wearing the damn bibs), let them PICK OUT THEIR OWN CLOTHES, and do whatever they hell they wanted for the day. Instead they followed their nazi mother's insane, OCD-driven rules that are in place ONLY to make YOURSELF feel "right" and appeal to the window-lickers that are your core audience. You parade those poor kids through the paparazzi frenzy that you yourself have not only created, but nurtured and coddled and fed. *Side note- I don't think you are f***** your bodyguard- I think every shutter click brings you to orgasm. And who would want to touch a filthy BOY?* If you cherished your own children the way you cherish your "celebrity" status, they might have a shot in this life. Like a pit bull in the fighting ring, you have clenched on savagely and refuse to let go of your selfish desires, even though everything in your life that REALLY matters has fallen to shreds. I am deeply embarrassed for what you have become and scared to death of what the childrens' future holds now that you have dragged them into this unholy mess. The facade is cracked and crumbling and even your die hard sheeple are growing unable to ignore the cold hard facts of what you really are.

katehater said...

Wow, there is just too much to comment on her lame-o blog.

First of all, what is up with the picture on the right??? Who does Kate think she is? She looks like a high school cheerleader.

Second, I love how Kate says she hopped up after 3 hrs. of sleep to feed the kids breakfast and play with them outside. Hah! Sorry Kate, thanks to your show we get to see "behind the words" and we all know that you never play with your kids or do anything with/for them enthusiastically.

Lastly, Kate forgot to mention she didn't do the store run by herself... she had another set of eyes and ears and hands in her bodyguard/boyfriend Steve. I love how when Kate is gone, Jon is off with his gf and when Jon is gone, Kate is off with her bf. Maybe STAR actually got it right... such a twisted marriage.

Still don't know if I'm going to watch the premiere. I hate to support them in any way anymore, but there is always that curiosity....

In my opinion, posting nonsense on any blog doesn't do anything except to discredit the poster, and makes the blog boring. I believe it's more productive to discuss rather than to bash--on either side.

We all know that there are people who hate the show, but there still must be an awful lot of people who love the show or the ratings wouldn't be what they are.

It's nice that there can be some productive dialog on this blog without the risk of a personal attack. I agree with some posters, here--all reality shows involving children should be cancelled--the all are a form of exploitation. One is no better or worse than another.

I wonder if any other subject has caused such a flurry in "blogland".

JJ28 said...

Is it just me, or do MOST the comments have the same tone... like the same person wrote them. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if someone was paid to sit there and try and write 100s of comments. They all have the same writing style and are all corny and repeat the same thing.

There's 4 comments in a row that seem SO fake! A "Kate, bailey, Conan, and Danielle" posted all in a row and each of their posts start with "Kate", and say some lame bull to boost Kate's ego. Then there's other comments with the same type of "Kate..." form and with common first names as the submitter.

HannaBelleLechter said...

The ghostwritten blog is just another attempt at the rehabilitation of Kate Gosselin. The PR folks are taking the public criticisms to heart.

The photo accompanying the blog has a son on either side of her, and she's holding hands with both of them. This from a woman who has never disguised her feelings of "ick" over the boys.

She talks about getting up early -- we know she isn't an early riser from her own lips. Making breakfast -- if that's even true, it's cold cereal. Laying out clothes? I believe that one because she's all about appearances out in public.

The business about no Jon, no babysitter, etc., rings so false. Wires crossed, indeed. He is so outta there. As far as handling all the children by herself on the shopping trip, please. The TLC crew, the bodyguards, all the gophers. Come on.

And why lie about driving herself? It's silly. I don't fault her if she's a nervous driver and prefers to have another person drive. There's no shame in that. But when she lies it IS shameful and just another indicator of how EASILY Kate fudges the truth -- in every aspect of her life.

And her rants against paparazzi are ALREADY old! There's a surefire way of ending fotogs' interest in her and the family and she knows what it is. Boohooing about something she craves -- public attention and adulation -- is ridiculous and rather embarrassing.

I have to say that none of Kate's current behaviors surprise me in the least. She has never hidden her true personality -- demanding, unbending, obfuscating and cruel. We've seen her nastiness with her husband, her sons, a few of the girls, even people who have given them goodies or offered them help. Kate is NEVER satisfied and never gracious. She's a big open pit of neediness and dissatisfaction.

Nowadays, with all the media attention, her flaws and frailties are magnified and on public display. But there's nothing new about the Kate we are seeing today. She's quite a piece of work. The coworker who makes life miserable; the parent who makes a teacher's job that much harder; a supervisor with an inflated ego who takes all the credit for her workers' successes and deflects all blame for anything that might go wrong. We all know a Kate in real life. On TV, she's that much more horrible to observe -- especially since we see 8 innocents caught in the maelstrom of a mother's irrationality and character flaws.

Why r they still 2gether? said...

Hannabellelechter- You're right
Kate is never alone with her kids- I heard as soon as the cameras are
turned off each child has their own handler-
This was from a visitor to the
museum when Kate was there
with the kids.
I also noticed how she is photographed alot with the boys
all of a sudden- I hope she
pays some attention to them when the cameras are off.

For the kids said...

Hate My Job said...
I'm an intern at TLC. No, Kate did NOT write that blog, and you won't see negative comments, the moderator won't allow them.
*******************
I don't know. If it's not Kate, they got someone just as ignorant of grammar as Kate is. Right from the first paragraph:

"I had gotten home long after midnight from my last speaking/book signing tour for quite awhile."

As an object, that should be written "a while."

"I was happy to be at home with my kids who I have missed A LOT!"

Whom. Whom I have missed a lot.

"five additional cars joined our crew and myself"

...our crew and "me"...

IMO, it sounds just like Kate. It sounds exactly as she tries to speak when she does her confessional pieces. It has her same grammar errors. It has her same poor punctuation and multiple exclamation marks. It has that maddening habit of inserting "which" into sentences when it serves no purpose.

I think she wrote it. I think she's trying hard to become the writer that Beth was when Beth penned "Kate's" book for her. She's failing, though.

WomanMother said...

Kate, don't listen to these naysayers, if I could provide for my family by doing what you did I would do the SAME THING! How dare people judge you just because you were savvy enough to market your children to get rich. It's not like your family is falling apart because of fame. Keep up the good work!

*sigh* ....the above is my little contribution to the TLC blog, too bad it wont make any difference =(

I thought about something the other day...I yell at my children sometimes when I'm especially stressed and the house is a mess etc...but 90% of the time I go back to them and apologize for mommy's harshness, then I try to make them laugh like I'm sure most of us parents do....maybe if they showed those types of moments with Kate it would have made a small difference in how she's perceived. Maybe if they showed a genuine and candid moment of Kate and Jon goofing around together, hugging after an argument where you see the sincerety in their eyes it would've been different. It's the reason I think we don't resent the Roloffs (?)

bowtiejess said...

Ugh! That fake blog is the most pathetic pile of crap I have ever read.
All positive comments- like it's gonna make a difference? Like someone will read them and say "you know, she's not so bad, look at all these nice things people had to say!". Give me a break! You can spit shine a turd all day but it's still excrement!

Sarah said...

I posted the following comment to Kate's blog, but since the moderator appears to be approving only the hyper-positive comments, I'm pretty sure it won't see the light of day.

So I'm posting it here too:

Hello Kate's ghost blogger:

I'm pretty sure that whoever's moderating these comments are only approving comments which are unreservedly 'positive'.

Since my comment doesn't meet these criteria, I don't expect to see it published. But on the off-chance the moderator is TLC staffer with an understanding of the concept of brand equity, I offer this:

Marketing professionals know that in the past 10 years, the successful brands are the ones which have 'transparency'. In other words, people don't mind being 'sold to', as long as they don't feel they're being duped; they know that not everything they read is true, and when brands pretend otherwise, the consequences can be disastrous.

Which brings me to this fake blog. I know that the Kate Gosselin Brand Redemption is fully underway (i.e. you're trying to reposition her as the Formerly Mean Kate Gosselin Who Is Now Nicer Thanks To Personal Tragedy), but this falsely chirpy, obviously ghost-written piece is not the way to go, and in fact I'm pretty sure it's going to do more harm than good.

The biggest problem Kate Gosselin has at the moment - and the reason her speaking engagements aren't selling out quite as quickly as before - is that everyone has woken up to the fact that she's not only fake, but kind of delusional: her constant protestations of "This is real - I don't care what anyone thinks of me..." don't sound like the words of a brave soldier any more, but excuses for the fact that she's simply not a very likeable or even admirable person.

(Not to mention the fact that she never credits the people who actually WROTE her books.)

Given all this, how can a fake, sunshiney blog possibly help Kate Gosselin, the brand? We all know that at this point, the only way she's going to salvage her brand (and her empire) is by dropping the act, acknowledging her flaws, and - dare I say it? - perhaps even apologize.

I'm not quite sure why I'm bothering to write this comment, but as a huge former fan of the show, I'm finding myself strangely bothered by the Gosselin trainwreck.

Gosh I hope those kids are okay in the long term.

bowtiejess said...

I am guessing this probably won't make it through...
Kate-
I have learned so many parenting lessons from watching you. It's true and I am grateful for the way you have opened my eyes. I also have a hard time getting up in the morning and have to hit the coffee pot first thing.
You just ignore all the things being said about you. Just block them out. Don't you let any of that bother you at all! You just keep on doing what you are doing and setting an example of motherhood for us all.

Hee hee.

Kate (thank goodness, not Gosselin) said...

Ok, I never comment, but I had to share this. I decided to check out more of TLC's site and found this information on the LPBW site, my guess is that TLC is using these same "rules" on "Kate's" blog.


"To participate in the discussion, you must be a member of My TLC. If you are already a member, you can log in using your current username and password.

BTW, there are a lot of comments about the Gosselin's in the LPBW message boards too - I haven't seen a kind one yet. It looks like TLC doesn't have to monitor LPBW stuff like they do the Gosselin's.

8ovus said...

Kate wants to bellyache over the paps following her everywhere, but deep down I believe she loves all of the attention. No doubt she feels like she hit it big because she was on the cover of People magazine.

Does she even know what Maddy and Cara are doing in school? Does she know what they are studying right now? What history are they studying? Is it U.S. or World? Does she care? Does she help them with their homework? What are their strengths and weakness? Does she care? Does she even know? Are they good at math, spelling, science? Does she care? Does she even know?

One simple answer. No. There is no possible way she could be involved with the kids, her marriage and still whore herself out to the media outlets looking for attention and sympathy. Something in her life has to give, and it was her kids, and her marriage. She is nothing but a cold, disconnected and hard hearted woman. I will not watch one eppy of the new season. I will not give her the gratification of having even one more viewer.

I think K8 should be hung from the flag pole as an example of giving good mothers a bad name. “Normal” mothers do not “act” the way she does. She is delusional and I don’t mean that lightly. I think she really believe she is someone of importance. The only people she is important to don’t matter to her.

So here is my 2 cents left on her blog…

“Kate, you are a unique mother. When you were born you broke the mold. I will never forget how you left your children to fend for themselves on the laundry room floor when they were sick. What a creative way of handling them when they are puking! They won’t stain the carpet and you can shut the laundry room door so you do not have to listen to the heaving and retching up yesterday’s organic crackers! Thanks for the life lessons, I will never forget them.”

Do they track DVRing a show now?They do. It doesn't count in the day after count but when the final week ratings come in it DOES include DVRs whether or not you are a Nielsen family.

Be careful guys, everything counts. Every blog hit, every comment, every you tube view. As long as they make money and are grabbing viewers the show will continue.

If.The.Kids.Could.Blog said...

I'd love to hear the kids side of the story...

Today I woke up to that lady who makes us call her "mom" screaming that it was time to wake up to go shopping for our birthday parties.

We learned at school that our birthdays were May 10, but this year that was Mother's Day, so "mom" made us put it off. After all, everything she does is for us (including the spa days that we don't go on, the spray tan that we don't get, and the luxury hotel rooms we don't stay in while she's on the book tour for the book she didn't write with the bodyguard that's not guarding our bodies).That's a whole different story, though.

She picked out our clothes for us, so I know she didn't get my birthday wishlist. I just put one thing: recognition that I'm an individual, not a clone of the 5 other kids I happened to share her belly with. So I put on the same outfit that my sisters were wearing even it's totally not me. I'm more of a capri-tank top kind of girl, but the Fave likes dresses so we all better start liking dresses.

Then she screamed at us to hurry up and eat. We weren't tying our bib quickly enough I guess. I hope these PopTarts are organic.

So then Super"Mom" packs us into the car and starts freaking out about paparazzi following us. I actually prefer the paps because at least they're not in my friggin' house all the friggin' time. They just like watching me play and they never interrupt me to make me say "Coming up on Jon and Kate Plus 8" a gazillion times. Do you know how inconvenient that is when you're trying to play Hide-n-Seek?

Hide-n-Seek is our favorite game...We all hide and then wait to see how long it takes for "mom" to notice we're gone. Let's just say that without that camera crew, we could probably set up our own town on the outskirts of our acreage and "mom" would probably not notice.

Scratch that, she'd probably charge us rent because the land is supposed to be hers, all hers, as far as her eyes can see.

So we get to the store and "mom" is acting all put upon by the paparazzi. Again, I've got to tell you I can't tell the difference. A cameraman is a cameraman to me. Pictures of me pooping are not more or less embarassing just because of the type of lens on the camera. Being stripped of my privacy is demeaning no matter how it comes about.

Anyway, "mom" thinks we don't know any differently, but we do. We love school because we get to be ourselves- sometimes Joel even gets to be first at things because we don't have to go in birth order. Our teacher says our names in all kinds of different orders because she isn't afraid she'll forget one of us. It's so great! And, even though there are 16 students in class, she hugs us all every day! And has time to tell us something nice we did every day! "Mom" can't fit all 8 of us into her day, but our teacher can fit us into a half-day.

I was thinking that our teacher does all this nice stuff because she gets paid to. But that can't be right. I'm working so my "mom" can have a ton of money, but that doesn't make her nice to us. Hmmm.

Anyway, the camera crew just arrived so I have to go act like "myself". Because the show is my life and my life is...not so good right now.

Love,

The Anonymous Tup

I really dont mean to offend and yes we all are curious and i did look at it once but i really think its best to stay away from her so called blog as the more hits it gets the more popular they say it is...if that makes sense. imo only. I know I wont even look at it again..just so nobody can say there is intrest in it. They are looking to spin anything to make it look positve and nothing about what has gone on the last month is except true colors are finally coming out. Thanks mods for all yuve done the past few weeks with posting all the responses

Too funny! According to Kate's blog, they apparently "road" the train home. What a joke for a supposed "bestselling author" (yeah, right!), she can't differentiate between the verb "rode" and the noun "road". How "ridiculously ridiculous"!

I had a bit of fun with my comment that I left there last night.

The first letters of each sentence spell out a special message to Kate :-)

I really hope there will be no more posting of phony comments on the TLC site. Many may use this behavior as a reason not to take us seriously, and I would like us to continue to be seen as a positive voice for the Gosselin children

The comments on her blog are hysterical! I love the ones dripping in sarcasm. It totally makes my day...i haven't laughed this hard in awhile.

The media keeps throwing Kate under the bus and she is still clueless about the reality life. She does not bother trying to repair her finished marriage and her distressed children. Hope the TLC will be involved in this mess in one day REAL SOON!!

I don't believe it does any good to "ignore" the blog. I think if you want to ignore it, fine. If you want to lambaste it, fine. If it feels good to sabotage, sabotage away. She, and TLC, most certainly have it coming.
