Thank you for posting this new section.

All I read was "blah, blah, blah" and Kate being defensive before a story even breaks. I think Kate got caught with her hand in the cookie jar. :)

Baker said...

This article sounds like she wants people to feel sorry for her - stating this couple is "their last set of friends"... geesh...

Keeping It Real said...

It is ironic that Kate claims the media and/or paparrazzi drove her extended family and friends away. I would lay money down right now that this is another one of her bold face lies. Step up family and blog about how your sister is making false accusations about you.

We all know KATE drove people away because she wanted to be famous. She never had the children's best interest at heart. It was always about Kate and always will be about Kate as long as "she is breathing."

Melissa Stevens said...

Baker, I would never feel sorry for Kate. Her only friends are her bodyguard and wife. Well I guess she just made an enemy with Steve's wife, eh?

Patsy said...

I just read her comments before arriving here today.
Why is it always 'they love us...?"

That is such a weird way to say it.
She never says she/they love them.

Ugh!

Becky said...

PEOPLE magazine is just a magazine for PR (that's public relations ;-p) agents to spin their latest stories.

How about shutting up, going home, and seeing if there is a marriage worth saving, Kate?

RobandKimplus1 said...

The part of this article that made me most sick was when she said it's only natural to be friends with your manager, security, etc. Such a hypocrite considering that up until this point on the show she always refered to them as "workers". Oh now they are friends huh?

Also, it goes against her saying of late that she is not a celebrity but an average mom and wife! I know I, as a average mom and wife, do not have an entourage of workers/friends around all the time! UGH! Lies everywhere....

AnneInNewWest said...

I find it weird she cares about losing her so called friends more than her husband/marriage.

TooBad,SoSad said...

Patsy said "She never says she/they love them.":

That is because Kate is incapable of showing affection or saying those three little words her children are aching to hear.

In all of her interviews, Kate has to try and impress the sheeple. You know like MY books are on the best sellers list, MY career is taking off, MY house, MY life that I love so much, My bodyguard. :)

People have speculated that the bodyguard is for the family. The bodyguard is for Kate because Kate believes she is all that. A wannabe but will always fall short of the mark.

and as Julie would have said "The Truth Will Set You Free." It will all come out in the wash very soon Katie Irene

Peg said...

I just read on radaronline.com that the brother who said his sister had an affair with Jon has a much deeper criminal past than was first reported. The brother actually was the driver in a drug killing over money. The court records are quoted on radaronline.com. To me, this leaves his honesty in question. I don't believe him anymore.

Although Us says they didn't pay him for story, they probably paid him for the video. That's what the media does, so they can claim not to have paid for the story. But, in reality, money was paid. It is just classified as payment for video or pictures, not the story itself.

Johanna said...

Funny how other 'celebrities' can manage to keep their friends and family. Kate might want to take a closer look at herself before blaming the media for driving people away from her. Wasn't she already estranged from her family before the media storm? Pathetic excuse.

"Ultimately, Kate says she does not know what she can do to stop the insanity". Um, let's see Kate. How about stopping the show?? Problem solved. Oh yes, that would require you or your husband to get an actual job and you would no longer be supported by your children.

they exploit their kids and it's so wrong said...

They are the ones who chose this celebrity lifestyle. And, yes, if you have a reality tv show airing on TLC daily you are a celebrity! When you are in the limelight you should expect the good, the bad, and the ugly that goes with it. And that includes the press and no privacy, etc etc. What is obviously very sad is that the children had no choice in this whole circus they call a life. They don't get to have a normal life now because of what their parents chose for them. I don't buy the "but this is normal for them" argument. Sadly, kids grow up in all sorts of crazy situations sometimes and they do think it's "normal". But that doesn't make it right! I think the whole thing is just ridiculous. These people selling out their kids and it's just so wrong.
I cannot, for one second, imagine my child being on a reality tv show. The thought of people tuning in to see what she does, how she looks, what she's wearing, etc. would horrify me. To think of all the wierdos out there "worshipping" these kids is gross. And if you don't think people are out there like that, you're crazy.
One more thing, when they started ending relationships with friends and family, why didn't they step back and think "ok we need to stop this all, it's getting out of control"?

Christie Nicol said...

I find it weird she cares about losing her so called friends more than her husband/marriage.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
Because Kate is far removed from Jon at the moment. She hasn't once said I love Jon and he loves me and we are going to work through this with our children. NOPE, it was all about Kate. AGAIN.

dee has had enough... said...

Oh boy! Here we go.... I wonder if she even knows what they have on her. I think it's going to be just like last week with Jon...story runs, they all deny, then more dirt comes out that they can't deny (the video, the receipt for the handbag, etc.) People Magazine comes out on Friday....Star on Monday the 18th....

Makes sense why Mr. Grey disappeared this weekend. Guess he was home doing his own "damage control". Can't wait to see how this all pans out...I think they are going down folks! It's just a shame that the kids are going to suffer b/c of those two a$$ho###!

_______________________________

Peg I will respectfully disagree on this point. The brother may have a hairy background; however, it does not excuse Jon. Jon obviously has stepped out on Kate many times. Please don't excuse Jon for the decision he has made. I also believe it won't be the last we hear about his affair(s). More to come.

Cherier1 said...

Oh now it's the media and the American public at fault that she has no friends.

Stupidly stupid.

I'm sure the sheeple will believe it.

Still, Jon is able to have friends isn't he? heh heh heh

seasidebreeze said...

This has been said lots of times but for people like Kate, it's all about them. If anyone disagreed with Kate and the decisions she was making for her family, they were removed from her life. Now all the "friends" she has left are the people who are in the Kate Gosselin business, and she is definitely fearing losing them most of all right now. If they go, and they surely will once the cash stops flowing, she really won't have anyone. She pushed away the people who truly cared long ago. Kate will just blame the bad press for everything though and won't take accountability for her decisions. It's all about Kate. She doesn't care about Jon, her parents, her old friends - and the saddest part of all - she doesn't seem to care about her kids anymore. Kate has picked money, fame and power over everything else - and it's coming back to bite right now. When the cameras go off for good and TLC moves on, a broken family is going to be left behind. Very sad.

ICExploitation said...

"Oh woe is me"

The basis of all Kate Gosselin Speaking Engagements.

Cherier1 said...

Poooooooooooooor Kate.

I am beside myself right now.

Not.

Get the kids of the tv. Worry about THEM , Kate.

dee has had enough... said...

Oh, and I forgot to mention this too...THANK YOU TO THE MODERATORS! I honestly don't know how you guys are keeping up with all of this and from the looks of things, it's not going to slow down anytime soon! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!

P.S. I think I will be staking out my local convenience store on Monday so I can get a copy of STAR hot off the presses!

Pitiful said...

"Oh woe is me"

Agreed. I am sure we will see a new book in a few years probably entitled the same thing. "Woe Is Me"

Peg said...

Trivial:

I wasn't excusing Jon.

In everything, we must consider the source. In this case, the brother has an extensive CRIMINAL background, including driving a killer (before and after the murder!). Surely, that must mean something to you.

beautifulmidnight said...

Who's fault is it that there are hardly any friends left to speak of?

Who's fault is it that the media is around 24/7? You invited them into your home!

As for Jon, whether or not the brother of the alleged other woman is credible, you can only deny being photographed with women other than your wife so many times without the "they're just fans/friends" excuse.

WENDY A. said...

What kills me are the comments on that People post. They are mainly pro-Kate by "inspired" fans. GAG!

momof5 said...

Between the time this was posted on People.com & a couple of hours ago the article had changed. Maybe due to editing?

detroitmama said...

I just hope this means her visit to Detroit this weekend is off.

Robin said...

....not to mention she took her sweet time coming to Jon's defense but now she's defending My. Grey before the story even breaks....

...interesting.

ROFL said...

Ultimately, Kate says she does not know what she can do to stop the insanity.

I do. Give the kids a childhood and cancel the show. If its not too late they should have a some-what normal life.

littleangelkisses said...

"in this situation, your circle grows smaller and smaller, and it's very natural to become friends with your manager, your publicist, your security team ... they're the only people you have left. And now they're coming under fire."

Oh man! This is just so sad and wrong. Don't play the "woe is me" part here Kate, you say on your OWN website that your family doesn't agree with you. How sad is it that your only friends are those who depend on you for MONEY!

Tina Brown said...

I think the Gosselins' success is the perfect answer to this blog. Highest rated show on TLC, New York Time's bestsellers list, etc., etc...

Oh, and all the children have their college paid for.... enough said.

RobandKimplus1 said...

I am sure the sheeple will read this article and think that Kate's friends left her because they were JEALOUS! Afterall, that's pretty much the only defense of her that they can come up with.

Johanna said...
Funny how other 'celebrities' can manage to keep their friends and family. Kate might want to take a closer look at herself before blaming the media for driving people away from her. Wasn't she already estranged from her family before the media storm? Pathetic excuse.

and, Johanna, the strange thing is the fact that she doesn't even have it figured out that we know that. So typical of narcissists - she doesn't even realize that people are on to her. I think part of the problem with this entire mess is the fact that people just don't like her. If it comes out that Jon has 50 girlfriends I am still not going to give a darn and will never be able to feel any sympathy for her. I brought this up before but does anyone remember anyone in the past on TV who was so disliked? I can't.

Also, loved Amy's remarks last night when Matt and friends went on a camping trip and left she and Molly home. She said that she wouldn't have given up that time with her daughter for anything. Betty said several nice things about her kids growing up. I have never heard Kate saying anything like that about her children. You would think by now a bond would be forming between she and Mady and Cara. I remember around this age my daughters were moving away from daughter and closer to friend.

Jen K said...

I know that Jodi doesn't want to get wrapped up in this anymore, but Julie sort of opened the door to the inside world of Jon and Kate and we know neither Jodi nor Julie are bound by any confidentiality agreements.

So....maybe it's finally time to get some truth out there from the family. I mean, what more damage could it really do at this point? If the goal is to protect the kids and get them off TV so that they aren't sold into servitude (who do you think will be in those promo pieces for Kate's new clothing line for kids?) then why not come out, family members and take care of this the Band-Aid way and just rip it off and let the healing begin?

Why wait until this gets even uglier? I think the family, even though they were shunned by Jon and Kate, want to say something but were afraid of embarassing the kids. Well, the barn door's open and the horses are already out so why not wrap this up once and for all and come forward?

Jodi, Kevin, Grandma and Grandpa Kreider...Julie...now is the time to do something. This is what you were waiting for.

Jen K said...

>>I think the Gosselins' success is the perfect answer to this blog. Highest rated show on TLC, New York Time's bestsellers list, etc., etc...

<<

Sure, because you can't have a television show, a book or pay for your kids college unless you pimp your kids. Someone had better alert Jennifer Aniston, John Grisham and everyone who ever paid for college for their kids that they went about it all wrong.

God knows using one's own talents, abilities and hard work would never work to accomplish those goals right? Much easier to ride along on your kids' backs instead and put them through this hell.

This is success? If so, some people have a strange idea of what that is.

Dear Jon said...

Don't we usually get a sneak peek of what's going to come out in the mags ahead of time? For example: The Star and US weekly were already advertising their sneak peek stories before you could purchase them last week.
I honestly think someone has something more on these two scam artists. If they (the paps) had picked up on this story a year ago,they would have even more dirt :(

Oh and I think it's ironic too that Kate is sooo worried about losing her last few "friends" and yet shows NO CONCERN whatsoever for her children.....Nice!

New here said...

What happened with Aunt Jodi and Beth?

RobandKimplus1 said...

Tina Brown

Success at what price? Ummm, let see.

-Cheating hubby
-Public humiliation
-No friends (her own words!)
-Had to sell her own children's privacy for her "success"
-Uses her faith for financial gain
- Threw her own family away because they "don't know how to help her"

Oh yeah, baby, I want a piece of that success.

The Truth Will Set You Free said...

Sick, Sick, Sick!! I have never known someone who is so comfortable telling lie after lie!

Most troubling to her is the realization "we opened our world to this," she says, adding, "but we willingly made a conscious decision to put this out there. Our friends and family did not. I had no idea we would potentially take down the people that we love around us."

Stop playing the victim, Kate (that's Jon's role)!

"It's like saying, 'Thanks for your support, let me sic the paparazzi on you.' It's very very difficult. It leaves us, essentially, alone and friendless. It's terrible."Friends and family were not run off by the paparazzi. I wrote almost a year ago that there was no one left in their life who wasn't getting paid. That was long before the paparazzi became an issue. Now she's worried about losing her only "friend"--someone who is reportedly getting paid $1600/day to be by her side.

The truth: Kate isolated her family last year when she decided to turn her family into a business. She hired a manager/PR and they got to work making everyone believe she is "supermom".

"It leaves us, essentially, alone and friendless. It's terrible."Now this is the truest thing I have ever heard her say. Kate, you are alone and friendless because of your choices. Don't try to blame anyone else for your miserable life!

I said this a year ago and I'll say it again, Kate does not care about what is best for her children. It has always been about what Kate wants! I would think this is becoming more obvious as the truth is being revealed!

ICExploitation said...

Oh, and all the children have their college paid for.... enough said.Then Kate should NEVER ever again ponder how she is going to pay for college tuition times 8 at a speaking engagement AGAIN... and yes she still does this.

snickers39 said...

It's interesting how she threw Jon under the bus last week and now this week she's getting all defensive over the rumors about her and the bodyguard.

Trivial said...

-----------------------------
Of course it means something to ME. However, I am not Jon nor did "I" bring this scumbag to my place of residence around MY children. The truth is the truth is the truth. It doesn't matter who tells it, the TRUTH is out there.

Dear Jon said...

Jen K~
I personally think that the G's are keeping their families and former friends quiet.

I'm sure they have been threatened with a lawsuit if they speak out against them. (just my opinion).

I have hoped for a long time now that Julie or Jodi (and Beth) would come out and tell the truth. They could sell their story to the highest bidder and use the money to pass legislation to protect other child reality stars. I would also think that Paul Peterson could help them with attorneys, etc.
I would think Jodi and Kevin could "sue" Kate and Jon for "exploitation" of their nephews and nieces. It would be ugly but if the TRUTH got out, I would think they would have more support than the G's.

lindahoyt said...

Think this belongs here...Kate you keep saying that you "can't go back'...no you can't. But, you can stop going forward on the wrong road! You are going the wrong way. Instead of hoping that there will be a loop in the road; turn around, and go back to the place where the road split, and take the other way. The road less traveled. The narrow road.

Get on your knees. Right now. Ask the Lord to lead you and guide you in the way you should go. Ask for the strength to turn your back on fame and fortune, and to resurrect your marriage. Ask forgiveness for your greed, and selfishness. Ask God to "change you"---to make you a brand new person, in the Holy Spirit. Ask Him to deliver you from selfcenteredness and selfrighteousness. Ask him to make you able to forgive others, and for others to forgive you.

Cancel the show. Get the cameras and the flunkies out of your house. Put the house on the market and buy a more realistic, affordable large home---a farm, where you can grow your own organic meat and veggies! Yipee!

The kids are now in school, you and Jon can go back to work at real jobs, that don't depend on you selling your family memories....and your children's childhoods.

Call up all your family and friends, and apologise for your greedy, selfish behavior towards them. Apologise to your husband, for humiliating him every chance you got. Apologise to your parents for dishonoring them; and apologise to the church that helped you out, for not being a graceful recipient of their kindness.

GIVE your used clothing to poor families. Volunteer at school and church, and since you are a nurse, volunteer your time as a nurse as well.

Ask your children for forgiveness. especially your boys. Tell them you are sorry for ignoring them so much, and favoring the girls. Take them out on special days, just you and each of them at a time.

Do all that, and you will really be a much happier person. So will your family. You have the power. No one else does. You make your life.

Your kids deserve this.

lindahoyt said...

It is very telling that Kate is in a panic at the possibility that she may lose her bodyguard; but not that she HAS lost her husband!

Sukie said...

First thing first - no - I repeat - NO tabloid has printed any "proof" (aka, video/photos/sibling confirmation) that Kate has cheated with her security guard. (That information has only been circulated as gossip and rumors on blogs and comments.) She is jumping the gun and being quite defensive IMO.

I think it's quite funny that she states that her hired help is her last set of friends - bwahahahaha - you reap what you sow!

Tables Have Turned said...

Interesting that Kate defends HER reputation and that of Steve's before she defends Jon. She was "hesitant" to believe things she read about her own husband but dare point the finger at Kate and she goes ballistic. HA! In your face you big disgrace.

JuliainWV said...

I think Kate got caught with her hand in the cookie jar. :)




I believe that was ORGANIC cookie jar! :) LOL!

Annies said...

I have been critical on here of actions of Jon and Kate but I never believed the rumors of her fooling around with her bodyguard Steve. Let's remember he has a family also.

I am not sure how the paps would find out who the Gosselins friends are enough to sit in front of there house!

Sue said...

Kate is on TMZ today. Leaving Target - ALL SMILES! Thought she didn't like the paparrazzi? She sure doesn't seem bothered!

Sal said...

Kate Kate Kate

You are more upset about losing your body guard then your husband????

That says it all.

lindahoyt said...

Yes, I am sure that Kevin and Jodi just got sick of the lies told about them in the tabloids...THAT is why they are no longer in the family...it couldn't possibly be because after a long week of watching 11 kids; many of them sick, everyday, Kate calls her up and chews her out for giving the kids gum?! Then, making her sound like a total idiot in the interview segment. No. It couldn't be that. It couldn't be that Kate used her friends, and was never there to help them, when they need it....never offered to fix what her kids broke, or clean gum from Aunt Jodi's house, or watch Aunt Jodi's kids so that she and Kevin could have a night out? How come Jodi could watch all the kids, but Kate couldn't? That would have made a good show, actually. Shoot, it couldn't be that after all her friends and family did for Kate, she could not even bring herself to acknowledge that it was actually BETH who wrote her book! Couldn't let Beth have any of the limelight. No. it couldn't possibly be the fact that she is rude and selfish that drove friends and family away....no. It must be the publicity.

Yeah, that's the ticket.

ntvnat said...

"PEOPLE magazine is just a magazine for PR (that's public relations ;-p) agents to spin their latest stories."

100% SPOT-ON CORRECT! Both TV show 'Entertainment Tonight' and magazine People are blow-liquid-sunshine-up-your-ass, what (((I))) call-- a "paywhore" show. They'll SPIN ANYTHING if yo _pay_ them enough. You CAN NOT watch that show and read that magazine w/out a grain of salt. _Both_ are disgusting. You might as well see them as if it was a commercial.

Aimee said...

Oh, I see...it's the TABLOID'S fault her family and friends are scant and few in numbers.

That makes no sense.

If the tabs and pap were the ones to chase their supports off, why is she acting so surprised now that they are the focus of so much media attention?

She's playing this like she's some victim who had no idea just how hairy things could get.

But if they're down to a small social circle due to media attention...why is she so surprised now?

If she noticed that they were losing friends and family because of the show...why did they continue? Was that not a big honking sign to call an end to this farce?

Seriously...when will enough be enough with her? I don't care WHAT she says, I am convinced her eldest children (at least) have SOME inkling of what's going on. They might be privately educated, but that doesn't mean they live in a bubble.

I am also TOTALLY horrified that both Kate AND Jon are objecting to the media attention being paid to them. Oh sure, it's nice to be the feature on the cover of magazines and it's nice to have the family showcased on talk/news shows but oh my gosh! It's TERRIBLE and unconscionable and horrifying and blah blah blah when they are fighting NEGATIVE publicity.

Sorry Jon and Kate, if you wanted to remain media/Christian darlings you should have been living a life beyond reproach.

You can't have it your way. That's just not the way the world works.

Dear Jon said...

Julie~ I wasn't sure if you were still around here ....sooooo glad you are :)

Is there anything we can do to help support Jodi (and family) through all of this?

If you ever would (or could) talk to the press, you know we would all have your back :)

ntvnat said...

"Kate is on TMZ today. Leaving Target - ALL SMILES! Thought she didn't like the paparrazzi? She sure doesn't seem bothered!"

Besides that GOD AWFUL hair, TMZ reader comments say: Does the BACK of her hair look like a duck's butt??? Who in the HELL goes shopping at Target in high heels???

pretty is as pretty does said...

Go on over to TMZ, there is Katie Irene in all her orange glory, please leave a comment on your thoughts regarding her "situation". The sheeple are posting

I am glad to see you! I hope you and Jodi are well. It's so sad that your words have come true.

Oh Please! said...

The "they love us...." quote absolutely leapt off the page at me. This has got to be to most self-absorbed, hideously un-self-aware bitch I have ever heard of. She does not get it, and she will never get it.

Get her off my TV TLC, pronto. I am sick of hearing about her!

Please tell me where I can write TLC. I have been looking, and can not find it. Thank you.

For those of you who are new to GWoP, the above poster is Julie, aka Aunt Jodi's sister.

Welcome back Julie, and thanks for your input.

**************************
OH GOODY! :) Then THAT must mean that Jon is going to man-up & go on the Today Show & Larry King & The 700 Club & Rachel Ray, etc & speak in defense of Kate?

....or is he "hesitant" to believe the allegations?

Its About Time said...

BRAVO for Julie coming out of hiding! I always knew the family cared. :)

Julie, if that is you welcome back. Your words of wisdom have been missed on here. I just mentioned you in a post last week. I think you knew this was coming and graciously stepped back and let someone else bring it to the forefront.

Only In America said...

After viewing the recent pictures of Kate, she certainly doesn't look like a lady who just had the worst news delivered to her last week. She seems peachy, peachy, peachy and happy as a clam.

I avoid people like her. Trying to look good on the outside BUT holy cow they are pure evil on the inside.

Great post Linda Hoyt, as usual.

And yes BRAVO for Julie speaking out. I am sure it disgust the family to hear her lies day after day, especially of late.

KonNoMore said...

Julie: If that is you, please let Jodi and Kevin know how our thoughts and prayers are with the children.

lindahoyt said...

The truth will set you free....please tell the truth.

I am sad that you took the truth down from your website, because I never got to read what you had there, I have only heard it referrenced.

I think it is despicable that Kate has said previously that her fame made "Yes, even family members", jealous, and that was why they were out of her life.

And now she blames the media.

Why oh why are the two of them so blind? Why can't they see their own duplicity in their troubles?

pretty is as pretty does said...

I ask again please go over to TMZ.com and post under the most recent Katie Irene entry. The sheeple are posting, TMZ might listen and take it more seriously for their next story about her. Something must be coming out this week proof she is doing Mr. Gray,Katie is freaking out.

VA mommy said...

JULIE!!! SOOO glad to see you are still around!! Do you think that Jodi or Beth will come forward at any point???? It would be so nice to get their perspective on all this.

As far as Kate's comments, all I have to say is:

WHAAAAAAA!!

nanasez said...

Oh, and all the children have their college paid for.... enough said.Then Kate should NEVER ever again ponder how she is going to pay for college tuition times 8 at a speaking engagement AGAIN... and yes she still does this.
********************
So true! I highly doubt that Jon and Kate have socked away over three quarters of a million dollars (conservative estimate of 4 years of college for 8 children) in education accounts.

But she has money for $300 shoes and $500 dresses, Jon has money for a $32,000 sports car and he can give expensive presents to "friends"...all before securing their children's future. As long as Kate is claiming need on the road, that family SHOULD be living a thrifty, modest life. Not a the life of "new money" lottery winners in their million dollar estate.

P.S. - Great to see Julie posting again!

I can't believe still believe that this family is wholesome. If Kate were my friend and she was out acting like she has been lately, I would call her on the carpet for it too.

I think her actions speak louder than words.

Never a word of love for Jon, but more importantly her CHILDREN. It truly is all about Kate. Sickening individual.

Those children need to be taken away from her. YES, all EIGHT of them.

so irritated said...

{{{hugs}}} Julie! It's great to hear from you!

Poor Kate the victim. The only friends and family they have now is their manager, their security people and their publicist... i.e. paid people(but she's not a celebrity.) You called this last year and Jon and Kate said that was "lies" on their website.

Having only paid people in their life probably seemed like a perfect solution to an obsessively controlling person like Kate. She could dispose of the decorum people normally use in dealing with real friends and family members and instead have the final word because she was the boss. Guess that didn't work out well since they went through 16-17 nannies... I mean part time helpers, in a very short time.

mommynMO said...

I love how Kate is now considering taking the show off the air, because people are coming after her with allegations. She couldn't care less about people picking on the twins at school or people ripping Jon a new one with his whole scandel, but boy oh boy come after Kate, and she goes running like a skunk-haired dog with it's tail between it's legs.

Pink said...

Yes Jen K., now is the time for jilted family members and friends to come forward and finally call out Kate on all of her concocted lies and fabrications, even if they just blog about it. Thanks so much Julie for posting! I've heard about the blog you and Jodie had, and I have great respect for both of you.

HI HI HI said...

These photo's of Kate are making me sick....Her PR firm is making sure that they get out there to do some damage control. Take them with a grain of salt [they are staged] and as phony as a 3 dollar bill. Notice how Jon and the kids are absent from all these photos? Its because Jon and the kids don't have a book to sell.

Michelle said...

Dear Kate,

You get what you get and you don't get upset.

Muwah!

Your non fans!

DODADODA said...

Kate's paranoia in the article is in overdrive. The paparrazzi is out too get her! The paparrazzi has ruined all her friendships with family and friends, BOO HOO!!

Cry me a river Kate you witch.

I just hope this means her visit to Detroit this weekend is off.
***********************************
Yes, detroit mama, me, too!! I live in a suburb of Detroit and we have enough problems in this area without Kate sashaying in and stirring people up around here! If she does make it, I wonder how many sheeple, I mean people, will show up for her $150 'tea'??

Ms.Peach said...

Besides leaving a comment on TMZ about the Kate pic, you can also leave them a private comment at
http://www.tmz.com/contact/contactus

I told them I hope they bust Kate but not let her PR sucker them like they did with that Target shot. Get a load of the big grin on her face! She's lovin' it.

AnneMarie said...

They're the only people you have left you heartless shrew, because you chased everyone else away!

NORMAL people don't want to have anything to DO with you, and the only people you have left around you are ONLY around you to ride your coat-tails and make MONEY off YOUR children.

When that ride stops, YOU HAVE NO ONE LEFT !

SaNdY said...

WELCOME BACK JULIE!!! (aka 'the Truth Will Set You Free') I am SO glad to hear from you, and judging by the some of the latest comments I have read, many others are, too!!!

Jana said...

"These are people who absolutely love us and want to see us through to the end," Kate says of Neild and his family. "Of course, both of them travel with us at times, and we've spent holidays together, because, in this situation, your circle grows smaller and smaller, and it's very natural to become friends with your manager, your publicist, your security team ... they're the only people you have left. And now they're coming under fire."

It's so interesting to see the pattern repeat. How many times has Kate said of different helpers, friends, and others, that they are people who "absolutely love them" or "love the children" and would do anything for them? Beth, Jody & Kevin, the various nanas, helpers, and other collateral damage along the way.

Even more interesting that Kate acknowledges that the people from TLC are the "only ones left." She's banished or driven every friend and family member off, leaving a new close circle of "friends," who are really just your security detail, your publicist, and your producer/crew. And they have to pretend to like you because their job depends on it.

crabbygirl said...

I think that Kate may be "alerting" the press to her routine and then complain that they are stalking her. It seems to be a thing to do among "celebrities" when they need attention.

doodliesquat said...

"She doth protest too much, me thinks"

lileinstein said...

it's all so crystal clear! when the US magazine article came out with the confirmation of jon's affair, it stated that they had attempted to get comment from TLC, but they denied. so my best guess is that they've been contacted again for comment on this upcoming article. makes perfect sense. this pre-emptive strike on kate's part, the sudden disappearance of the bodyguard...

lindahoyt said...

Seems that Kate isn't handling fame very well. I wonder how she would feel if Jon made some public statements to that effect? How about if he goes on talk shows and says how much he is enjoying his life, and his "job"; but that Kate is having trouble adjusting; and making poor choices? I am sure that would be very supportive of him. Because after all, that is what Kate said about him.

She needs to be treated the way she treats other people. As I said before, Jesus told us to treat others the way we want to be treated....so, that must be the way she wants others to treat her.

It isn't mean to say that she said, "blah, blah, blah, blah...." Whatever....I am never going to call you...because that is how she treated the dog trainer. It is okay to call her on everylittle mistake she makes; and not thank her for anything....because that is how she treated Jodi and Jon. Jon was told not to bleed, and not to breathe...so, is it wrong to critisize her. No. It is how she wants to be treated.

AnneMarie said...

Just caught up with today's reading. JULIE !!!! Pull up a CHAIR! I have warm NON organic, full fat, real CHOCOLATE chip cookies!

Come on up to the table and chat a while!

Momom said...

If you are paying someone to be in your life they are not your friends. I don't care how friendly they act to you or if you see them outside of the working day. They will not be there when you are done paying them. Remember how Kate said that the crew was like family to them and now Jen and Scott are no longer there. I guess if Kate calls you family you should know that you won't be around very long. The saddest thing is that Kate is only thinking of herself here. She doesn't seem to be worried about the fact that the kids have never had a long term relationship where the person didn't disappear from their lives. Hopefully at least Nana Janet or Nana Joan is still around in the background somewhere. They are going to have serious issues because of this when they are adults.

marj said...

Ok I personally LOVED the featured sponsered links of the article they were these two:

"SPONSORED LINKS
1 Cure For Yellow Teeth

As seen on Rachael Ray. Rachael Ray ranked this Teeth Whitener #1!

1 Flat Stomach Rule: Obey"

Well in Katie G's world it would be little more like

SPONSORED LINKS the Katie G way:
1 Cure for yellow teeth....
pimp out your kids on TV and people will give you whiter teeth FOR FREE!

1 Cure for a flat belly....
have six cuties, pimp them out on TV and some freaky doctor who obviously needs more business will give you a tummy tuck and lip... FOR FREE!

Wendy Bird said...

Thank you for posting, Julie. You have been missed.

=^..^= said...

JULIE!!!!!!!!

::clap clap::

yeah! so glad to see you here. i really hope you stay with us and give us some insight.

BettyBoop said...

LOL. Oh, now Katie is worried. When it was Jon he was just handling it badly but now that it's Katie. Those animals are stalking them!!!
Get the butterfly nets as she's going to need a padded cell soon.

ruthy said...

Right Kate......

Your mother, father, best friends, sister-in-law, brothers, sisters and neighborhood friends have all gone away because of the paparazzi?

They just couldn't handle the media attention? So three/four years ago when you stopped talking to your family the paparazzi was following them? Three of four years ago?

It would be a sad day in my life when the only friends or family I had were the people I had hired to "promote" me and "protect" me.
That might be their moto for Kate to "promote and protect".

It's offical! They are the Gosselintanic. They are going down!

Jon & Kate Plus 8 - Sneak Peek Birthday*
Source: www.youtube.com
The new season starts Memorial Day (May 25th) at 9pm e/p on TLC. For more go to http://tlc.discovery.com/tv/jon-and-kate/jon-and-kate.html

This is way to funny. kate at a cake party for her Birthday,after what she did to her kids last year. Wow now there's an irony

Patrick said...

Of course Kate is going to deny an affair. I'm more interested in how she admits that friends and family are dwindling away and all that's left within the circle are people who work for them and TLC.

AnotherLisa said...

Does anyone know how much the Gosselins profit from each rebroadcast of their show?

I read in an earlier post that they can make 50K to 75K per episode produced.

Is there any way to estimate their earning potential and what they would stand to lose if TLC pulls the plug?

MM2005 said...

Kate has re-written history claiming the paparazzi "animals" have driven away her friends and family. Until February, when Jon had his co-ed gate, the paps were not paying any attention to the Gosselins and their little TLC program. In fact, that lack of media attention has been the cause of much frustration on this very blog -- trying to get someone, anyone, to look into the child exploitation of the children by their huckster parents.

So, how did the rags drive KON's friends and family away? They didn't, KON drove them away -- cut them loose long before the tabloids showed up to document their tacky lives.

Let's just set the record straight, Kate. The photographers didn't start trailing you guys until Jon started hanging around bars getting drunk with young women. You two have no one but yourselves to blame. You can stop this right now -- just stop the show.

Ravello said...

Truth/Julie, A. Coast here and I am so happy to read your comments. You have been missed. Please keep us posted as to the truth. Thankfully, this blog is going strong and continues to give important perspective on Queen Kate.

Anonymomma said...

My 2 cents worth:

1. Kate saying papparzzi are 'sitting in front of their 'friends' houses' = "I am trying to convince you all that I am friends with Babe too and my husband isn't boinking her"

2. The media/show is responsible for their family & friends being gone = "The 'show' wanted to pay our 'family & friends' and when we said no and threw a fit, the 'media' caught on to our BS and now we're caught"

3. I'll bet you a 1.3 million dollar house K8 never once met Mr. Gray's wife, ever. Isn't he from NZ? Maybe a phone conversation, when Mrs. Gray called K8 to tell her she was gonna rip her skunk hair outta her head for messing with her husband.

4. Jon might leave K8, but she will never leave Jon. Even if he leaves her he is stuck with her. He knows he can get away with an 'on the side'. He just has to put up with her bitching for a while afterward.

5. Is the 'not a nanny' now a BFF?

6. Interesting. She basically confirmed Beth and Bob being kicked to the curb.

7. Who'd rather pay a total stranger, than family? Especially when it's your kids? K8 wouldn't allow Jodi to be paid, but she hired the not-a-nanny?

Kate is just trying to make it look like they are one big happy family. Best buds with the Neilds. I betcha Mrs. Nield is about to be informed via Us Weekly of that receipt. Kate's covering her tracks. Or trying to. They've got something on her. Definately premptive.

Chris said...

I don't think Kate cheated with Steve. I think she she is mad because she has to have a new bodyguard now. I think she loved having the same bodyguard as Bill Clinton, another ego-booster. Now she has to settle for a regular body guard and she is uspet.

Maggie said...

"just wondering"

Can you email me about your comment please? shatzie1980@yahoo.com

Anonymomma said...

Am I the only one who pictures, upon hearing or reading Kate say 'they love us'...

"You love me! you really, really love me!"

Ms.Peach said...

Kate clears the air about the other tabloid reports — including her feelings about her husband's bar-hopping and her plans for her family's future — in the upcoming issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday.

It's going to be the WAR of the TABLOIDS again.

Jen K said...

The interview/statement in People sounded rushed and not nearly as "crafted" as some of their other interviews. This seems like a rush-job to get it out there before People goes to press. To me, it sounded rather desperate and not at all the tenor of previous interviews where the answers were likely reviewed or at least consulted by Julie Carson May or one of her people.

There is SOME reason why they needed this denial out in time for this week's news cycle and it couldn't wait until next week. The desperation in this article reminded me of Jon Boy's blatherings in Utah when he was off his leash and allowed to speak. It revealed much more than he probably intended. That's how this interview seems to me as well.

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

I have thought that since last week. Us Weekly vs. People Magazine!

gameover said...

Jon and Kate's friends didn't know "how" to be friends, just like how her parent's didn't know "how" to help.

I think that what really happened is that their friends and family didn't know how to help the kids out of the mess their parents got them into.

It must be absolutely devastating for Kate and Jon's relatives and ex friends to watch what a mess they've made of their lives.

I think the only thing Kate could do to redeem herself is to write a book on how evil money is and it wasn't worth it in the long run....somehow I don't think this is ever going to happen.
Katie Irene can never admit she is wrong...
I love how what she has in her Target cart...yeah...one package of toilet paper and paper towels...she goes through that in one sitting with all the bullshit that comes out of her mouth.

txteacher said...

First time poster, long time lurker. I was so excited to see Julie's post! I love coming to this blog, you all are spot on! I just wanted to say great job mods, and keep it up everyone- you are the ones that broke the story about "Mr. Grey!"

Abby said...

Sorry Mods! I posted this in the other section when I should've put it here....

Kate's alleged cheating was reported on E! News Live and is the #4 story on The Daily 10.

I hope now Jon goes on the Today Show and says he's "hesitant to believe any of it".

:P

Lisa NH said...

Friends? Kate has friends? Since when? I thought Hate drove all her friends away. Maybe her PR people are her friends?

Vicki said...

To Aunt Jodi's sister: Tell Jodi that, back when we thought it was the good'ol days at The House of Jon and Kate, some of us felt Jodi was a sister-in-law any of us would have LOVED to have had! I personally thought she was loving and kind...and a really lovely, sweet young mom! I'm sorry you have all had to suffer such hurt.

Gotta be tough on Kevin...I think that's the name of Kate's brother to whom Jodi is married. I lost my brother to a heart attack when he was only in his 30s and I miss him every day of my life, since I'm alone now and he was my baby bro. With aging parents, I've needed him by my side to help know the best things to do for them. You can't replace a good brother or sister. Gee, I think I just heard Kate say something to that effect on Rachel Ray...that she reminds the tups and twins to always love and lean on each other because when there's nobody else, you've got each other. Kate obviously doesn't practice what she preaches.

Can I just say one more thing before I leave this site for awhile, because I can tell when I'm getting too obsessive! I was fuming over this situation last night and my husband paused at the computer and said, "Vicki...WHO CARES (i.e., get a life!)!!!!" I told him that, of course, on the one hand, I don't know these people, but it all goes back to feeling like you've been HAD. You read the stories about the tups' birth, the reality show seems innocent and interesting in the beginning, you feel a near-attachment for the kids. I, for one, got sucked in, big-time. But then, when everything seemed to change and raise questions, and I got a sense of the real skinny from GWoP and others, I felt stupid, annoyed and "betrayed" (although that's a strong word). How could I be so blind to a really-not-real couple and TV show...and how do they get away with it? So, it's a reaction...like, kick yourself in the butt, you just wasted HOW much time reading about these frauds and watching them on TV! I know I'm supposed to put forgiveness first, but that's coming slow with me. I'd tried to give Jon and Kate the benefit of doubt, and I was sincere about it but they did indeed keep digging the hole deeper. The good that has come out of all the online and non-TLC chatter on the tube is that it puts a spotlight on the wellbeing of the Gosselin kids so that, somehow, they can be saved from further exploitation by forced employment in the "family business."

I could almost (almost) feel sorry for Jon right now. I'm beginning to wonder if he's been swept along with every swish of Kate's broom, although you think he could have stepped up at some point before the end of last season (when he was starting to implode) and said enough is enough unless Kate is just too fearsome and explosive to go up against. I wish he'd had his dad around for guidance, since both Jon and Kate appeared to have admired the man.

I've tried to look at it from all angles but I think the reality show is over. The tups are getting too big now and will begin to resist the camera, much like the twins. Kids say spontaneous things and can sabotage the carefully-crafted image of the family (I should say the FORMER image, before it got THIS tarnished). With bloggers and commenters poking fingers at everything wrong they've been saying or doing, Jon and Kate are quickly becoming a joke, and very unpopular.

We're watching the rise and fall of the Gosselin empire. Genuine concern for them is being replaced with pointed disdain. It IS very sad, especially to think that there will be a day in the future when the kids will be grown and able to process their past with adult eyes, wondering what on earth their parents were thinking.

LOVE IT!!! (and might steal it for elsewhere . . .sorry!

JULIE!! woo hoo. Have you been keeping up with the reading all year? It's been quite a ride. I care about those kids and ONLY those kids. What do Jodi and Kevin think of Kate's newest picture book?

Julie, just know that whatever you do you have thousands of us behind you 110%.

beachluvin said...

I forgot to say welcome back to Julie.
Weclome Back!!!

It's nice to have Julie back but I think it's unfair for us to ask her any questions as far as any "inside' scoop. I think this whole thing is tough enough on the families.

Not trying to speak for Julie, just saying.....sorry if I over stepped any boundaries....

babeeberry said...

Awww poor Katie Irene. This is exactly what we said she would do, act as the victim in it all. This has given her a clever way to explain why she has no friends tho.

The most concerning thing for me right now is the company Jon is keeping. His non~girlfriends brother has a longgg criminal history and some pretty scary details of it are leaking out. I certainly wouldn't want my husband cheating on me...but to be cheating with a woman whose brother has such sketchy connections...YIPES!! What has Jon exposed his family too through this woman?

~~Kristin~~

HannaBelleLechter said...

Kate is MUCH more passionate, vehement and animated in her expressions of outrage, love and affection for the people who work for her than she ever was in her denials of Jon's affairs.

Her quotes sound like a woman deathly afraid of losing a security guy (and his wife too?) and genuinely fearful that he might split because of the speculation. Very telling, Kate.

Now if I were Steve's wife, even if I trusted him implicitly and knew for a fact his role was strictly professional, I'd ask my husband to request a change of assignment. The security company has a stable of bodyguards, Steve's not a solo act.

Mr and Mrs Steve should remove themselves from this zoo pronto. They have nothing to gain, and everything to lose.

So sorry Kate. You and your husband seem to have that special reverse-Midas Touch -- everything you touch turns to crap.

p.s. When there are people in your life who are on your payroll to do various jobs -- security, landscaping, publicity, career-manangement, like that -- those people are called employees. They are not your friends. Here's a test: Kate should tell them that Gosselin Inc. can no longer afford their salaries. Let's see how long the "friends" stick around.

Debbie Lee said...

I have heard alot about the 23 year old woman who is hanging around with Jon, and she says that they hang around in "groups". If the brother lives in the same house, and he has done all these criminal things, then WHY is Jon hanging around with him and his sister all the time? Why would he pick such a criminal to spend his time with and be friends with, knowing that it would get out in the tabloids sooner or later? And Kate talking about the "animals" that stalk them now, driving the few friends and family away.... That was YOU, Kate, long before the media started picking up on these stories of Jon and yourself. The stories were there a long time ago of YOU kicking close family members out of the "spotlight" because TLC wanted to pay them for their time on camera. YOU said "No one gets paid but ME!!". And then one by one, the family and friends that everyone loved were gone from sight, never to be seen again. Do NOT blame the media and paparazzi for what you did a long time ago. You are afraid now about the few people left that you call "friends" because they are all a part of the production of your show, and your so called self authored books. There are so many "real" celebrities that have tons of family and friends still around. How is it that you cannot have any at all left? Because you let all the bright lights in your own home go to your head, and decided that you were too important. You were a star and didnt have to share with anyone including your own family. You "love your life now", remember? If the people you still allow to be "friends" go away, so will the show, right? Because they are the only ones around anymore, the production crew, cameramen, directors, publicity (who are having a really hard time keeping up with all the crap), and they HAVE to be there. If they all quit, NO SHOW. That is what you are REALLY afraid of, isnt it Kate?

Jen K said...

I'm curious to see who the friends are that were at the tups 5th birthday bash.

This is from the TLC schedule for May 25th. Two half-hour episodes:

For Jon & Kate, it's hard to believe that their sextuplets are already five years old! To celebrate this momentous day, they're throwing them a big birthday bash, and they've invited many of their friends to join in on the fun.

9:30 pm

(30 minutes)
Jon & Kate Plus 8
Kate's Birthday Surprise
TV-G

The kids have a special surprise in store for Kate's birthday and they're soliciting the help of professional baker Duff Goldman! Will Kate enjoy this tasty, messy surprise? How will Duff handle the chaos of having eight little helpers join his bakery?

Katie said...

Wtf did she expect?!? It's obvious she wants people to feel bad for her. Well guess what....WE DON'T!! I'm suprised she's admitting they don't have any friends anymore. But at least she and Jon had the chance to have friends and to experience real relationships. Her kids will never get that opportunity. Their only friends will be each other because unfortunately now they're whole perception of reality is completely distorted. Think about it...these are kids that pretend to be a camera crew when they're playing....THATS NOT NORMAL!!!! Yea it was cute when Joel said "this is my boom," but it doesn't take a psychologist to determine that's a problem.

I just feel so bad for the kids. They didn't choose to live this way, and they don't know anything different which is the real tragedy. They need to get out of the fishbowl they're living in and experience real life.

maria said...

I am VERY hesitant to believe that Kate is having an affair with her bodyguard. I honestly think the rumor was started here, on this website, and then the media picked up with it and ran. This site is very popular and I know it is watched by media. If she were cheating, I really think 'something' would have been caught on camera or someone would have come forward to out her. But that hasn't happened. However, doofus John has cheated, without a doubt, and was too stupid to realize that he WAS being watched and followed. What I see in Kate now is some sadness and humiliation, and I truly think if she divorces him, she will be much happier. Although there were some paparazzi pics taken today or yesterday where she was at Target and she looked pretty darn happy in the those pictures!

KonNoMore said...

Kate has already alienated her parents, Kevin & Jodie, Beth and Bob, Jon's Mom what harm will it be if these people come forward and "out" Jon and Kate for the phoneys they are for the sake of their 8 children. They are already out of the Gosselins life, maybe if they come forward this family can be saved, at least by Jon. Kate is on a self-absorbed train wreck and nothing and nothing will stop her if it means the end of her marriage and being away from her children. These children need FAMILY IN THIER LIVES, PLEASE, PLEASE, I KNOW YOU CARE FOR THE CHILDREN PLEASE COME FORWARD AND STOP THE LIES BEFORE 8 CHILDREN ARE DESTROYED.

Anonymous Peg said...

Trivial:

I wasn't excusing Jon.

In everything, we must consider the source. In this case, the brother has an extensive CRIMINAL background, including driving a killer (before and after the murder!). Surely, that must mean something to you.
----------------------------

Peg, even if someone paid the brother for the video, that fact remains that the brother DID get the video - a video of Jon leaving the girl's house at 7:30am by way of the back door. So I believe the brother. I believe 100% that Jon cheated on Kate, perhaps with more women than just this one we are reading about.

ReRe said...

Kate is basically saying. You ruined her family and You ruined her life and You are making her family and friends go away. And You are making her end up alone. And by You I mean You, anybody reading this.
Hellooooo, wake up what does she take responsibility for?! She wonders when it will stop? When she stops the freakin' show, it's not rocket science.

Amy said...

Julie, another welcome back! I have been a long time reader and someto,e poster on GWoP and was absolutely thrilled to see your post. Missed you. Hugs, Hugs.

Whitemarsh Mom said...

This may seem ridiculous but I am SERIOUS.

I would LOVE for TLC to create a new show called "At Home with Aunt Jodi." Maybe Jen and Scott could work it.

Aunt Jodi is the kind of mother I want to be and I would love to see her interact with children -- any children, hers, or stage children.

I would find it comforting just sit down and watch her do a messy project at the kitchen table together or encourage the kids to put together a little skit. Other moms could learn a lot by seeing her cool calm manner of discipline.

Aunt Jodi steps back and lets the kids shine. I love that. I miss Aunt Jodi! Maybe she could even have Beth come over for coffee some days.

ChinaMomof4 said...

Oh my Lord, what a disaster this family has turned out to be! As much as I don't like Kate or Jon, Kate's People interview made me very sad. Her only friends are her hired help? That's not normal or healthy. The walls are closing in on all of them. Can you imagine how scared-confused-angry-hurt those poor children are right now? I don't even want to think about it anymore.

Long time, first time said...

How is it that Take, who said herself that she has no sense of style and clearly cannot dress without the help of professional stylists (as evidenced by yesterday's outfit at Target) now wants us to believe she's designing children's clothes? That woman is just endless with her b.s.!

And if I hear her say one more time that she is an inspiration to mothers, I'm going to lose it. I, for one, have never thought "If she (and her "not-a-nanny", personal assistant, organic chef, maids, stylists, endless cash, etc) can do it with eight, then I (alone) can do it with two."

I have never watched her berate her husband and thought "Wow, next time my husband gets on my nerves, that's how I'm going to handle it."

I have never watched her ignore her children and thought, rather than play with, read to, love on, and cherish my children, I needed to sit in a plastic chair and bark orders in order to be a good mom.

Take an inspiration?? Puhlease!!

cossysmom said...

Why is it that Kate thinks everyone loves her? every time she mentions someone doing something for them or giving them something it's always "because they love us and our kids." Did you notice when they were talking on the couch for the California episode, she mentioned that the hotel was so happy to have them there? Please Kate. Get over yourself. They were happy to have you there for the free advertising. Not because YOU were there.

One last thought...Kate always has Jon or now Mr Grey carry her purse. What gives? Even the Queen of England carries her own bag.

Sharon said...

As long as there are Sheeples, kate will never see what she has done. She just rides along on her high horse, with all the love she gets from the sheeples. I have to say that those people are scary.

Another thought came to me as I was reading some of your comments. I can't remember anyone who was chased by the Paparrazzi more than Princess Dianna, and it has been said, that they led to her death. And, I can't remember anyone who was loved more by people all over the world than Princess Dianna. So, if the paparrazzi are capable of chasing people out of someones life, it would have happend to Princess Dianna. Kate has nothing on that woman. Princess Dianna, had grace and real beauty, and she was truely loved all over the world. Kate has no one because she is a no body.

Ava said...

She always used to say Beth and Bob loved them too. And where are they now? Why can't Kate and family keep friends? That is so sad that they will end up in that million dollar home almost like living on an island. All because they were money hungry and used their children to gain fame and money. Those poor kids will be alianated as well and have no friends. How sad that their parents did this to them all so they could live the high life. I bet if they still lived in a tiny house with little room, the kids would be happy and have friends.

Anna said...

Believe me, if she catches too much of this "Mr. Grey" name everyone is calling him, she will insist he get a dye job and he will no longer fit the name you are giving him. LOL
And if he does leave her, who else will carry her purse? Who else will protect her from weirdos in Target and the tan salon?

ReREe said...

BTW, how did she manage to head off the story about her Mr. Grey but, was completely blindsided by Jon's misbehavior?

Cheetah said...

When Kate used the term "animals that stalk us" in the article, I figured she was referring to us GWOPPERS. Did anyone else think that? I doubt that the rumor of Kate cheating with Mr. Neild is true, because I can't believe he would see anything in her. I wouldn't be surprised if she were flirting with him though. Maybe she's upset because she wanted to keep him around long enough to write her next book for her, and then she could kick him to the curb.

Marie said...

Kate sure knows how to play the game. I am so sick of her lies and manipulation to the public. Jon is accused of cheating and she throws him under the bus on National TV and magazines blaming him for his poor judgement. Never once sticking up for him. She gets accused of cheating, and she is very quick to pull out how "horrified she is of these false allegations" then goes on to play the "poor me" card about how she has no friends blah, blah, blah. SHE alienated HERSELF and the Kids from Everyone as soon as she got enough money from the gravy train to hire help and push the REAL people away. The only people that are left in her life are ones who are PAID to be there because that is what she wanted. Now she has the nerve to cry when they run away? You know what Kate, FAMILY would not have run away from you during all of this but they weren't good enough for you when you thought you had everything and didn't need them. You are to blame for everything you are going through. You reap what you sew K8!

Anonymomma said…
My 2 cents worth:

1. Kate saying papparzzi are 'sitting in front of their 'friends' houses' = "I am trying to convince you all that I am friends with Babe too and my husband isn't boinking her"

2. The media/show is responsible for their family & friends being gone = "The 'show' wanted to pay our 'family & friends' and when we said no and threw a fit, the 'media' caught on to our BS and now we're caught"

3. I'll bet you a 1.3 million dollar house K8 never once met Mr. Gray's wife, ever. Isn't he from NZ? Maybe a phone conversation, when Mrs. Gray called K8 to tell her she was gonna rip her skunk hair outta her head for messing with her husband.

4. Jon might leave K8, but she will never leave Jon. Even if he leaves her he is stuck with her. He knows he can get away with an 'on the side'. He just has to put up with her bitching for a while afterward.

5. Is the 'not a nanny' now a BFF?

6. Interesting. She basically confirmed Beth and Bob being kicked to the curb.

7. Who'd rather pay a total stranger, than family? Especially when it's your kids? K8 wouldn't allow Jodi to be paid, but she hired the not-a-nanny?

Kate is just trying to make it look like they are one big happy family. Best buds with the Neilds. I betcha Mrs. Nield is about to be informed via Us Weekly of that receipt. Kate's covering her tracks. Or trying to. They've got something on her. Definately premptive.

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

commenting on your number 1 and 3, i know for a FACT that kate and the neilds are friends. kate has met Mr Grays wife, in fact the whole family has been with them when they travel, like when they went to hawaii. if you had watched that episode, you would have seen the family in the background in the airport. they used to live in NZ, but they dont anymore. the families are very close.

and it is true that there are papparrazi in front of mr grays house.

I dont feel bad for kate, they signed up for all the gossip when they signed on to TLC. However I feel bad for the Neild family, they did not need to be dragged into this.

Exhausted said...

Hasn't Kate pointed out that God works in mysterious ways? So maybe, while these allegations might not be 100% accurate, all this attention and scrutiny will cause more of this exploitation to come to light. Hang on to your prayer cards, Kate.

Exhausted said...

That was very good PR (public relations, that is) coaching for Kate to keep addressing the bodyguard and his wife and family together. I don't think she mentioned Steve by himself once. If she keeps sending the message that the families are always together and the couples are practically double-dating, the readers no longer imagine a scene with Kate alone with this guy and therefore, it loses its credibility. You may be a moron, Kate, but you certainly have gotten a good crew together to handle your filthy laundry.

jill said...

It would all go away, Kate, if you STOPPED doing the show.

I think she is loving all of the attention. She could care less the impact on her children. Forget about the marriage...it is OVER!

My guess is she wants a spin-off show where she is a single mom raising four kids. Kate plus eight...Single in the motherhood? lol

heightkeight said...

How is it that Take, who said herself that she has no sense of style and clearly cannot dress without the help of professional stylists (as evidenced by yesterday's outfit at Target) now wants us to believe she's designing children's clothes? That woman is just endless with her b.s.!

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

Keight says that she is not a baker but bakes cookies for the Going Green Epi? Right, Keight.

Keight has said NUMEROUS times that she is not crafty nor does she enjoy doing crafty things. From what I have read (I could only watch for 3 minutes before turning the channel in disgust) she and Ray Ray made some boat-thingy craft on the show ? WTH?

Keight said "real cooks don't need recipes" but is coming out with a cookbook?

Seriously, the lies and contradictions that come out of her mouth could be a separate post in itself. Any takers?

Tracy said...

Why Kon can't keep friends - because their true friends kept telling them to stop! Let the kids have a normal life...

but Kon figured, if the friends didn't go along with them, then they weren't friends...

So they adopted paid help - who keep encouraging Kon to exploit the kids, keep going, make more money.

They really forgot what a friend was. A friend looks out for your best interest. A friend would never encourage you to exploit your children.

Truly sad. Kate.. open your eyes. End it now.

anotherPAmom said...

Welcome back Julie!! Please know that you, Jodi, Kevin and the rest of your family have the support of so many of us - you have been in my thoughts a lot. Nice to have you back!
And Vicki, you made a number of good points. It sounded familiar when your husband said, "Vicki - Who cares?" I went through the same thing last week when I was trying to give Mr. PAmom the latest on Kate being on the Today show. He said, "Umm, no offense but you've been talking about Jon and Kate a LOT lately." So then I went through the whole thing with myself- am I really just wanting the best for the kids or am I somewhat amused by J + K digging themselves in deeper? (If I'm honest its both!) It looks as if J + K are giving us more shenanigans this week but (probably) fortunately for me the garden and hemming daughter's prom dress beckons me. And I'm really hoping all this works out to benefit the kids, but yes, I have been spending a lot of time at the computer too! (If only J+ K didn't make such a darn spectacle! :) :)

cherier1 said...

"The kids have a special surprise in store for Kate's birthday and they're soliciting the help of professional baker Duff Goldman! Will Kate enjoy this tasty, messy surprise? How will Duff handle the chaos of having eight little helpers join his bakery?"

Crap. I LOVE Duff. WTH was he thinking?

No, the clip we saw was all the kids minus Jon making little cakes and Kate acting like she cared when one of the girls(I think Leah) made a cake. My question is why didn't they do a tie in with that new cake show on TLC the cake boss I believe. I would have loved to see that guys two big mouthed sisters bring Kate down a peg.

Lesson in Reality said...

Yep, Emeril is on the season opener... Duff is helping honor Kate on her birthday... All the shows had Kate on for her new book...

The Gosselins aren't going anywhere, people. When a branding machine like theirs has been created, it is hard to stop. Kelly Ripa is now working to produce another show based around Kate.

All this gossip about their marriage only fuels the attention and success.

They are here to stay.

Somehow I doubt the Queen Bee is capable of calling someone and "begging". She thinks too highly of herself.

Kelly Ripa is now working to produce another show based around Kate.Then Kelly Ripa is stupid too. Wasn't one of the (Julie) stories that Kate treated Kelly rather badly?

jill said...

I agree. They are here to stay.

With all of this going on, they will have more viewers than ever...I am willing to bet the season premier will break cable viewer records.

Kathryn said...

Didn't one of the women on Housewives of Orange County quit the show when her son became addicted to heroine???
Kate, take the hint. Just quit while you can.

Los Angeles 100 said...

I used to love the show in it's first two seasons. I think Aunt Jodi and Beth were great. They are the only "supermoms" in this group. Now, I am horrified at what I've seen happen to this family. Truly sick. I stopped watching the show about 8 months ago. Could not tolerate the lies and the con game anymore. US, People, etc. have the story-and more will come out. These magazines are expert with this stuff and the Gosselins and their low life friends are no match for the celebrity journalism and tabloid industry. The show may make money (for now), but those magazines make BIG money for selling this stuff. Wave good bye to Kate's lame endorsements and her Christian publisher. That's short-lived, I'm sure.

Denise said...

I find it amusing to say the least that Kate claims their circle of friends and family keeps getting smaller and smaller. Gee, who's fault is that? Could it be because you're a witch who uses people like a paper plate and then tosses them away when you're done w/ them?
I don't really care if she's had an affair w/ this guy. But she states she knew what she was doing when she started this and she didn't realize it would effect her family??? Sorry not buying that excuse at all!!!
Once again, it's the kids that will suffer. Their school age friends will see and hear the rumors. Anyone who thinks that their classmate won't taunt them about this is living under a rock.

jayley said...

Kates show is now the new Anna Nicole Smith show.

Trainwreck? yep. Damage to children? yep. And the saddest thing ever was that the only people who were ever shown on Annas show were people that she had PAID. Camera crew, flunkies, and those on her payroll who as we've found out didn't have her best interests at heart. Most of us don't pay people to be part of our family, nor do we go seek false admiration from others.

It's so sad when the only people that Kate includes in her non-reality show are people that are paid to be there. Clueless Kate, thinking she's popular ,cute, and loved.

NahnCee said...

"I agree. They are here to stay.

People love a villian."

Kate's weak.

And stupid.

And a coward.

And lazy.

She's gonna fold. She's got to be feeling the dislike where-ever she goes and that will eat away at her self-worth of being perfect. I predict either a nervous breakdown meltdown where she's found wandering around naked in some farmer's corn field babbling about aliens, or a previously non-disclosed addiction of something that will require an extended stay at Betty Ford.

Jon needs to sleep behind a locked door and it would be a good thing to have a nanny or someone else keeping an eye on the kids 24/7 until Kate gets done with her breakdown and can be safely carted away for her own good.

jonandkatewho? said...

I got the creeps in a real big way when I read the entry from somebody saying Kelly Ripa intends to help Kate get a show.

I guess you guys are probably right when you say these people aren't going away, but I had really been hoping that the show would finally end and that Kate would somehow wake up to what it is doing to the kids.

I really get sad when I think that show will go on and on, and that Kate won't wake up and change.

Much as I don't like Kate, it doesn't mean I like to see the total destruction of a family, especially with kids involved.

Now, if I don't get to bed, I will be here reading all night long, and that really isn't healthy, lol.

jayley said...

There have been papparazzi INSIDE of the Gosselins house for years!! Why is she so worried about people taking pictures of her kids NOW when she allowed photographic equipment inside her chidrens bedrooms and bathrooms in intimate moments?? She is apparently brain dead.

Kat-e-Tonic said...

In regards to the media comment, that mainstream is now reading up on GWoP, I totally believe that. If something does come about Mr.Grey, and Katie Irene, GWoP would have been the first to break it. However, what I don't get is this. If those media outlets are reading this site, and reporting things from it, why is it, NO ONE can ask this woman ANY pertinent questions during an interview? NO media outlet asks about her "helpers", the chef, Not-a-Nanny. Why does she try to portray a SAHM when she isn't home? I mean, someone, ANYONE, ask her some REAL questions already. And, not the stupid ones she can tap dance around...Ask her about Cupcakegate, Gumgate, ect..Ask her about Beth being the author of Multiple Blessings. Why does no one ask her these questions that ALL OF US can see her contradictions, i.e. Realest Reality show ever...Give me a chance to interview her..I would ask ALL SORTS of questions....

This is so sordid and pathalogical these children are in no better circumstances then those 14 children belonging to octomom. I can't understand why no one steps in.

Just Be Nice Kate said...

All I can say is Wow. I'm just kind of shocked to hear Kate say she's panicking that they will lose their last set of friends and basically admitting to the world that other than TLC staff, they have no friends.

And haven't we heard this before...

"These are people who absolutely love us..."

Kate, do *you* ever love anybody? Must they always be the ones to love you *you*?

*sigh*

Such a sad situation. :(

And goodness, the season premiere is 2 weeks away and there is not even one show filmed yet?

If ever there was a time to pull the plug...

Actually, this might be a good thing. If Kate actually had any sort of show - talk show, or Martha Stewart-like format where she covered one or two topics of interest and had guests on to demonstrate one thing or another, I think Kate would fall flat on her face. She does not interact well over time with anyone --- even her own fans.

I would certainly love to be in the live audience. Wouldn't you? LOL

konGOaway said...

Kate with the bodyguard? I thought back in February when Jon was out with the college cuties he told someone that she strayed first. I know I saw that somewhere and it was suspected that she was a little too close to her personal trainer. Does anyone know who that guy is and why isn't anyone talking about him. The only thing with the bodyguard was that someone saw him rubbing her feet on a flight - I am sure that didn't please his wife - Kate's friend - too much!!

DeeB said...

Sadly, I agree that Kate is not going away any time soon. She may not have real friends, but she IS very popular. My theory is that so many Americans adore her simply because she is attractive. O.K., forget the ridiculous, horrible hairdo; but she really is a pretty woman. Not to me because I see from the inside out, but Americans absolutely love beauty. I've noticed that over and over. Also, mainstream television is not geared to intelligent people. I'm sure all of you have a handful of shows that you are fond of (like us), but most TV is just too silly or inane to watch. Shallow people (and there are thousands of them) are just fascinated by her good looks, fake tan, nice figure, etc. They think the children are cute so they are fine. She's not going anywhere. This is why so many shows have her on as well. They know she is good TV. Not for me though.

A question. Is the whole Kate had an affair thing just speculation or are their clues like there were with Jon?

Heidi said...

First off, a big hello and Welcome back to Julie! I am glad to see you are still reading here.

Now this is what I was thinking. How stupid could Kate be? Really stupid in my opinion.
Doesn't she watch TMZ? Doesn't she know that when you piss off reporters (or talk badly about them) that you are basically making sure they *gun* for you?
She calls them animals and blames them for all her misfortunes.
OMG! Fire your PR (that`s public relations :p ) because they told you the wrong thing to say.
They are going to be digging. They are going to be shooting snaps. They are going to talk to old *friends* from high school. They are going to find dirt on you at any cost.
Kate and Jon`s names are probably on a big ole white board in many tabloid offices.
The money that will be paid to the reporter that finds the dirtiest dirt must be HUGE!

You notice that when a celeb pisses off the paps, they are the ones that get the most damaging snaps of them.
You notice that when a celeb plays along and let`s the vultures do their job, they are the ones that are basically left alone and shown in a nice light.
Stupid! Stupid! Stupid!

delilahboyd said...

Dear Peg,

Consider this: if Jon is "just friends" with Babe, he obviously knows her brother.

The fact is that we just don't know how well Jon knows the brother because Jon is not clarifying when and how he met these so-called "close friends."

Don't you think if Jon was completely innocent (beer bonging, coeds, bar hopping, and leaving Babe's house early in the morning) that he'd have a better explanation?

Kon defenders don't believe the "criminal" brother, yet they think nothing of Jon hanging out at this "criminal's" house all night?

For all we know, the brother could be Jon's dealer. Hey, when you don't supply an explanation, people will always speculate.

Which leads me to Kate's bodyguard problem: when you're photographed with this guy more than your husband, people will also speculate. I've never read anywhere --especially on this blog-- that anyone is claiming the Kate/Mr. Gray deal to be true. It's just speculation.

This Gosselin sideshow just gets weirder and weirder.

I find the above sentence rather intriguing. Did you mean that he is the victim or that he enjoys playing the victim? If the latter, I had somehow pictured him in that role all along. He never stood up to her inspite of her constant humiliation of hom.

NJ thinks... said...

Welcome back Julie!

Funny how 1 short year ago, they still lived in their "little" house, Kate still wore the same "old" clothes, little make up and hadn't upgraded her whole lifestyle. Now, everything has changed..she has "upgraded" everything about her life due to her PR team. In such little time, her husband has had to really reached the depths of scum, her children were abandoned by her for her new "career" and all her dreams are coming true. Such sweet justice that Jon decided to stop the madness by running all around with girls and going to bars. He knows what he is doing. She didn't want to hear his cries so he did something about it. He is trying to bring her down the best way he knows how for all the years that she held him by the balls and that is by embarrassment. Kate, to you - YOU DID THIS TO YOURSELF. While I don't condone cheating, you brought this all on yourself with your need for greed. As long as the children do not get hurt, I hope this "outing" will stop the show and all of your stupid books and lies. So--how does it feel to be hated so much!

so irritated said...

Tina Brown said...
I think the Gosselins' success is the perfect answer to this blog. Highest rated show on TLC, New York Time's bestsellers list, etc., etc...

Oh, and all the children have their college paid for.... enough said.

Actually Tina, the REAL answer to this blog is that this show could not be legally filmed in California or Arizona. Children should not be made to participate in a weekly show (which is the family's SOLE source of income)with no legalities in place to guarantee THEIR money will be there for them when they are of age. Do you now get why there ought to be some laws??

"They love it!!!" you sheeple insist. No, YOU love it. These children are your entertainment, surrogate children or grandchildren and you want the show to stay on the air for your own selfish reasons.

"They are living a life they would have never had without the show." That's my other sheeple favorite and sadly, it is somewhat true. Without the show they would be cared for by BOTH parents 24/7. Not a succession of 16 nannies in less than a year, as Jon stated at his Penn State talk. If they weren't on the show they would have contact with their extended family on both sides. The grandparents and other family members do not approve of the children's childhoods being sold for profit, so Jon & Kate shut them out. Without the show, Jon and Kate would be home together on a late Saturday night. Kate wouldn't be in another state and Jon wouldn't be sitting on his new $32,000 sports car outside a bar at 2am looking for attention. Without the show, Jon & Kate wouldn't be tabloid fodder. They would just be another large, anonymous family in PA.

"Oh, and all the children have their college paid for.... enough said"
No, that's not a given. There might be enough money set aside for the children's educations right now. The question here is; has that money been placed in the TAP funds the state of PA opened for them? If so, at least that money has some protection. If not, Jon and Kate will use that money to live on when the show ends. When it's time to go to college, the tups & twins might have to take out loans like everybody else despite the millions of dollars they've earned for their parents. Again, there needs to be laws in place to protect the kid's earnings.

The "success" of this family means nothing to me, because I don't consider them successful at all. When the privacy of eight children being shown for profit over & over for years on national TV is considered success, it's a sad state of affairs. Jon & Kate chose fertility treatment for a second time. They understood the risks & possibilities. Forcing the six resulting children to earn their keep is revolting to me.

Mary in Akron said...

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned or not, but I especially noticed the line, "...they're all we have left." Kate was talking about her publicist, etc. Hmmm...isn't it a bad thing to not have family left? Wow...

Slightly off topic, but has anyone else seen the NEWEST Target AD?!?!?!

OMG I was ticked! 4 moms and their kids and how they blah blah blah, use Target to get more out of life..... fine it's an ad.

But not only is there a little boy running away from mom in his tightie whities, but she grabs him by them and pulls the band tight.

The worst is the little girl on the TOILET !!!!! She's sitting there with the door open and mom throws her a roll of toilet paper from the hallway !!! WTH?!?!?!? WHY SHOW THAT?!?!?!?

WLD Canada said...

I just need to say, what about the children? All of this coming and going, parents acting like superstars grinning for the camera, possibly cheating, away from home...wouldn't it be better for the children to live comfortably with less money then to see their parents acting badly? In tabloids, on tv speaking about their family, kids are smarting than some people give them credit for. How hurtful is this? Kate, stop complaining about people talking about you and get your family off of the tv...prioritize your life and think about your children...how sad. Stop blaming other people for your problems...this makes me so angry.
I could go on and on but this has already been stated wonderfully by bloggers here.
I just had to say it, it's like the elephant in the room, everyone knows what the problem is but one person can't or won't see it...thanks for listening!

She is "horrified" at the accusations that she's having an affair, but "hesitant to believe" the same accusations against Jon.

Way to get your husbands back, Kate!

WorkerBee said...

US Magazine website has list of the freebie's that J&K have gotten.

So much for her paying for the dogs and the money going to charity. What a scuzbag she is to play off she was writing that check for kids with cancer.

Another is the 'Organic' cow that they 'give up other things' in order to afford to eat organically? Yeah, that was free too. I could eat organically too if SOMEONE WOULD GIVE IT TO ME FOR FREE!!!

shelbysmom said...

Kate has got exactly what she has always wanted: The cover of People magazine alone with no kids or Jon. This is the direction she is taking her life. I think that is why she is doing the books and appearances by herself. She wants to be a celebrity.

Kate has confirmed the affair in a new People article. He did it.

Duh.

http://www.people.com

I guess we can mark this as the official date that Kate started her Sympathy Tour 2009. "She vows to do it alone....". Sure she does, if there's a paycheck involved.

As if I didn't like her before. This takes the cake.

Things are just Scary Now said...

I only just read the excerpts of her words on AOL and I am stunned. "They love us" and woe is me the publicity/TV/whatever chased our friends away--Is this the most DELUDED woman ever to breathe air? Is she mentally damaged in some way? Did she really have a head injury once, like Jon joked about on the couch one time?? I am completely serious. How can ANYONE with a pulse NOT know how others see them?? I know if I was so disliked, and had "no one", I sure wouldve gotten a few vibes about it by now!! She is not blind or deaf!! I'd be worried sick about WHY no one I knew, OR "the public" , thought positively about me! Oh and dont forget the relationship with her FOrgotten Kids! Yikes ; Sorry but this is Just Plain Out SCARY.

Ya, right - the animals won't leave you alone, yet you POSED for the PEOPLE cover and told them that your marriage is probably over. That won't attract any attention, will it Kate?

Long time, first time said...

Seems to me the Kate's article in People all but confirms Jon's affair, which is interesting since People was so quick to publish all the denials in the last two weeks. Makes me wonder if Jon's "poor poor me I can't just be Jon" at the end of season 4 was not because he wanted his privacy but because he wanted it all out in the open so he could leave her. Sure adds credence to the specualtion that he wanted to get caught with Dede.

If their marriage is in such crisis, as she tells People, why is she still jetsetting across the country and getting her face on every tv show and magazine that will take her? How can the sheeple justify that?

Kate sucks. We've all known it for a long time, and now the world will know it, too. Wake up and smell the coffee, sheeple.

One last thought...Kate always has Jon or now Mr Grey carry her purse. What gives? Even the Queen of England carries her own bag.

So, she's now on the cover of People saying that they might split up. At this point I would say that's a given.

"People.com ~ Kate is this weeks cover girl, stating the marriage IS in crisis."
***************

"We Might Split Up" is the headline w/glamour shot of Kate = a narcissist's dream.

Can't help but think this whole thing is a ratings grab, with articles planted by her PR team.

Kate's perspective:

Good stuff = God.
Bad stuff = all others.
