Why is TLC/Kate pushing that she is doing it alone?
Damn.. My husband works 3 jobs...I am home alone except for 15 minutes a day..OMG... I am surviving..it is what a mom does!!! Should we give pats (or feet up her tail) on the back?

Celena said...

Shes an ahole. I love how she is railroading jon as the only problem in that house. I love how she said he's completely chaned since she met him, ha!! She looks orange. From ugly spray tan, don't even ask me about her hair and what mom of 8 kids wears high heals to party city. What happened to her??? Jon looks like he's about to be a statistic jumping off a bridge, it's clear he Hayes doing the show so something gotta give.

OriginalThoughts said...

Oh get out the violins....now shes playing it that Jon isnt there so she will have to do the party alone. Unbelievable....oh and she should never be allowed to chew gum on camera........much akin to a cow with cud.

Oh and shes exhausted from stuffing gift boxes and pinatas...pooooooor thing ...
More complaints about papparazzi...maybe staying home would solve that? another concept she cant grasp!
Unstreamerish- her new word for being unable to use streamers ....save us all

txteacher said...

Oh.My.God.

Kate is sitting there all smug (they are sitting seperately in the interviews) hanging Jon out to dry. She wouldn't even address the rumors about her, she just said that it makes her mad and asked to change the subject.

She is basically painting Jon as being tired of being home all the time while she is traveling, so he is making poor decisions. DUH! He is rebelling like a teenager! When you treat someone like a child, you can't be upset when they act like one!

SHE ADMITTED JON HAS HELP!!!

Of course, the only reason she did that was because it was Jon. Not Kate. Kate doesn't have any help!!!

OMG!!! She's whining about how she's doing the birthday by herself because "Jon decided needed a weekend off."

I do like that she is praising Mady and Cara both for helping her.

She appreciates her fans- cut to her being friendly and talking to a fan at Books a Million. Yeah, right. You know that was staged for the cameras.

Jon doesn't care what people think. Yeah, we got it, ya d*****.

What cracks me up is she is painting this as Jon is never home, I am all by myself with the kids, blah, blah, blah.

She is totally setting the stage for Jon to exit the show.

Oh, and I caught the Globetrotter episode earlier. She was NOT wearing her wedding ring. Coincidence? I think not.

Beccabo said...

Frigidity...

Streamerish...

My teacher ears are burning!

Amy Harned said...

Where can Julie's blog be found?

...Amy... said...

Carla seems quite quiet in the scenes she's been in so far...is she not allowed to talk on camera these days b/c she'll have to be paid...

We also see that Carla's daughter, Ashley is a "helper" which may co-incide w/ the report that she's a helper if/when they go to Asia/Africa.

OMG, and what a teaser into the the next commercial...
Kate: "you know, parents of muliples have 3x the divorce rate...and I always thought we'd beat those odds"-as she dabs her eyes w/ a klenex b/c she's crying...oy.

Expositor said...

It totally breaks my heart for those kids that any time she does one little thing for them, she whines and complains.

But she practically glows when she talks about leaving them for her "job" and how much fun her "job" is.

Carrie said...

She's alone? Where the F are her 8 kids and 2 dogs and the TLC crew and bodyguard who seem to all live there in that big house?

Andrea said...

Jon seriously looks drunk during his interview. He's red in the face & mumbling like never before. Can't say I really blame him....

debi said...

I hear her mention the "P" word or that she's doing the party "all by myself" I'm going to SCREAM. She's SO full of herself it makes me sick.

Sugarpop said...

Kate says that now that she's "doing this alone" the big girls have really stepped up to help. Actually, Kate, with you and your controlling ways out of the picture frequently, your not-nannies have allowed the children to attempt to do things on their own and they have actually learned some independence!

They just showed a snippet of Kate, tearful, saying they knew the divorce rate for multiples was tripled but she always thought they'd beat that.

Amy B. said...

Did you catch the theme song??

"Everyday People"!!!

Hahahahahahahahahahaha!

I can't get over that one! Everyday people is the farthest thing from what they are!

Sue said...

First thing I noticed were the bibs are GONE!

Pauper Princess said...

Anyone else catch the promo for J&K set to the tune of "Everyday People"?

BWHAHAHAHA!!!!

Kara said...

How can Kate be so exhausted when she has been gone about 2/3 of the month on book tours? How often is Jon or the non-nanny doing it all while she is eating in fancy places and staying in fancy hotesl and flying first class?
Oh I guess the flight to NYC to interview for People took the energy out of her.

Jennifer D said...

What kind of mother tells her children that the "paparazi are coming" ???? They would have never heard the word unless she said it to them.

Why wouldn't she simply say "Lot's of people like to take pictures of us." and leave it at that? And why does she CARE if they take a photo of them walking into a party store? The most popular celebrities are the ones that treat the Paparazi nicely. Remember how Natasha Richardson's family posed outside of the church right before the funeral?

Kate thinks she is so cool. She is trying to make this seem like a "dangerous" situation. She is a blazing idiot.

Anonymous said...

Can someone please tell me why she is giving this "Whoa Is Me bit?"

I must admit that I broke down too and currently watching and just can't figure out why or how she can sit up there and tote herself as this super woman. Placing all the blame on Jon.....ugh!

txteacher said...

Two more new sponsors...Party City and Minute Maid.

There is no way they would have focused on the logo on the Party City bags if they weren't a sponsor.

When Jon bought those showerheads from a non-sponsor store (Coupongate), they kept calling it "that store." Party City is totally a sponsor.

Guess I won't be shopping there anymore.

iheartmy2girls said...

Kate being in a skirt, wedges and a light rain coat while saying it was "FRIDGITY-FRIDGED". Why not dress like everyone else in the "scene", jeans and sweatshirts???

Her being so happy is so annoying!! The kids aren't smiling, the help wasn't smiling, only KATE!! Hmmmmm


OH, and she humiliated Aiden asking if the frogs going into the pinata were candy. NOT NICE!!!

Kristen said...

THERE'S THE CAR!

Aarial said...

SHE forgot the cake, so he had to go get them,
she forgot her phone, so he had to go back and get them.
And he does show the white sports car.

DetroitBasketball said...

Wow, seeing that Mom and her son walk up to the party with arm fulls of presents made me realize how much it would SUCK to go to that party. Can you imagine having to buy SIX presents? I think I'd decline the invite just for that matter lol.

And they just showed Jon and his new white sportscar. I'm shocked that Queen Kate allowed that to be shown on tv.

BastaAlready said...

I can't believe what I'm seeing. Literally. I want to type a string of expletives. We're not only watching Hannah's birthday party, we're seeing Kate's pity party, too. Anyone who believes this chit needs to be in the locked ward with the Gosselins and the TLC suits who think so little of their viewers.

Seriously. Isn't there a shrink out there who's willing to offer a free eval, psychotropics and a straight jacket for this poor, "exhausted!" woman?

Since Kate said she values her naysayer's input, too....this one's for you:

Ef you, Kate.

You're welcome.

so cal in nyc said...

Are they both on something? He looks disheveled, lazy eyed and can't seem to speak properly. Perhaps hungover (or made to seem that way?)

She's giddy during the party set up like she is trying too hard. Keeps laughing and laughing. To hide the pain no doubt.

I, too, think this is all trumped up for ratings. Jon is right though... some day their kids will Google them. Then what will the excuse be?

"Mommy, I don't remember that."
"Daddy, the caroling was staged?"

I can just hear the explanations of reality TV.

Jon just showed up at the party and they are ignoring each other so far. I feel like I'm watching a soap.

Aron said...

Who decorates for a party in a dress, pea coat and high heels? Oh yeah, Kate.

GagMeWithASpoon! said...

awwww..she can't take the coldness - she is used to being in California

txteacher said...

Sorry for double posting...Jon drove seperately in the white Nissan!!! How are they going to explain that to the sheeple?

Is Nissan a sponsor? If so, that's a shame. I was really wanting to buy a new Altima. I had one as a rental and really loved it.

Philly Hockey Mom said...

Kate now stated that the divorce rate is way high for "multiple parents". She thought they would beat the odds. Whenever I see the Dilley's in updates the parents always look relaxed and happy. The Hayes still look cool with each other, the Harris's, the super quads just were on and their parents were laughing and holding hands. She is to much....boo hoo..."I never thought I would be in this place, I never thought this would happen to us." Yes, she is blaming Jon, as he has changed and not the Jon she has known all these years. Has she been hard on Jon? "Well yes, you have it on tape, but i didn't drive him to this."

Jon just pulled up to the party in his new sports car!!!!

Is it me or does he look stoned?

Jennifer D said...

Kate- SHUT UP about the paparazi! You have multiple camera's and a boom mike in your face and yet the guy across the parking lot taking pics is "annoying"...you are trying to make this into something that it clearly is not.

DMH said...

OH and why are they STILL using those darn high chairs????

fedup said...

Jon finally arrived to the party separate after announcing he had to go to the house??
Kate is talking to Carla rather then Jon... just plain weird!
They are sitting at separate tables and not talking at all!!!!!!
The way they are acting... their kids have to know something is really wrong..watch them..they know... it is obvious!

HATEKATE said...

Wow - can she do anything by herself???
And do I have to hear the word paparazzi again - do what the "real" stars do, ignore them!!!!

Lindsay said...

Uh, the moment with one of the girl tups and Jon was heartbreaking.

Kristen said...

It was either Alexis or Leah, I can't remember, but when she was talking to Jon at the table she said "I don't want you to leave anymore."

Wow.

OriginalThoughts said...

Nice piece with jon and the kids...made a comment about not wanting him to leave anymore...it was sad. They interact with him in a real way; totally different than with Kate.

Sad really.

...Amy... said...

Kate can't even speak to Jon at the party! What a freakin' b!tch.

She looks like the Wicked Witch of the West w/ that black jacket on.

The girls were so excited to see Jon when he arrived. It was cute. Jon getting "concerned" when Alexis (I think?) told her she invited a boy was very cute. He does love his kids, despite the fact that they (Kate/TLC) are throwing him under the bus.

Anonymous said...

Ugh - Kate is so in to herself it's disgusting! What actors they are when Jon walks up after running back and forth to the house like 5 times for her. Sigh - she acts like she can't event look at him and then quickly asks Carla where her black jacket is....she wears that thing all the time!

This is unbelievable!

DMH said...

WOW. Jon and Alexis just had the sweetest moment. And then it happened...Jon: "You miss me?" Alexis: "Yeah. I dont want you to leave anymore." Jon: "Well sometimes I gotta do work." Weird face at the camera.

Anonymous said...

Oh-my-gosh.....I think I have changed my view on waterboarding. This show is sad.

Not a fan said...

Kate is just eating up the paparazzi attention.

It's so sad that Kate had to do it all herself. She even had time to fix all the girls' hair perfectly. She must be superwoman!

zoey said...

kate is very passive agressive.
taking lots of digs at jon.
what a b!

txteacher said...

OMG....last one, I swear....when Jon was talking to Alexis about the boy she invited, he hugged her and said, "miss me?"

HE JUST ADMITTED HE'S NOT LIVING THERE!!!!

Did he really think we wouldn't catch that???

Right, Kate, Jon's just off for the weekend.

OMG...in the preview, he says "we both lost our jobs"

NO, Jon. You both quit your jobs so you could ride the gravy train your kids are providing you...the one that makes you feel like you're in prison...remember?

These people never cease to amaze me.

BuffaloMom said...

Did you see Jon's face when Alexis told him that she didn't want him to leave anymore??? Break my heart

Gina said...

I love Jon's sly..."Some people would say that I can't speak correctly or even breathe right.." Nice jab at Kate...love it!!

Also, his moment with Alexis where he asks her if she misses him and they are hugging...heartbreaking.

Kate is a shrew.

so cal in nyc said...

Anonymous Lindsay said...

Uh, the moment with one of the girl tups and Jon was heartbreaking.

For those not watching:

Jon hugging Alexis - Did you miss me?
Alexis - Daddy, I don't want you to leave any more
Jon - Sometimes daddies have work to do (something like that)

Imagine what they say when they see Kate for the first time in 5, 7, 12, days.

MayDay said...

Was that Alexis with Jon?? How heartbreaking was that? You know Jon has done wrong but somewhere deep down inside he really loves his kids. Brought a tear to my eye.

Pauper Princess said...

OK - the scene with one of the girls (Hannah? I'm sorry, I can't always tell them apart.) and Jon. AWWWWW....that was sweet, and seemed very real.

"Daddy, I don't want you to go away any more."

Awww....

Lindsay said...

I agree that Jon is totally getting shafted here. He seems to really miss the family and the life they had. Kate is acting like a fake b*tch. It's heartbreaking. It's like watching a train wreck.

ROFL said...

Thanks for all the updates! I'm not watching the show ... but love reading the posts.

Kara said...

We need to start, like "nowish."

BMWoP said...

Maaaaaaan,

This is now one screwed up family.

Alexis hugging Jon and saying, "Daddy, I don't want you to leave anymore".

Heartbreaking


Kate is way way over-trying to appear "nice" now and like she is a caring person. Major major damage control. I hate that word because it's so over used. But it is what it is. She is doing some major overhaul in the personality department...but she still is who she is. I'm sure as soon as the cameras stopped, so did she.

Beccabo said...

I think the interaction with the kids between the two parents speaks volumes. Jon's convo with his daughter was very "real". When Kate grabbed one of the tups as they were trying to run with their friends...it was so contrived for the cameras. He may be a spineless wimp, but he does love his kiddos.

PunkyPower said...

Hey everyone - Kate is exhausted.

Did Jon just say "we both lost our jobs" and he still isn't sure what to make of it? When's the last time either of them worked outside the home?

I want to smack the "ish" out of Kate's mouth. "Nowish," "coldish." I'm annoyedish.

Margaret said...

The little "kiss train" that she just did for the camera where she kissed each of the kids for their birthday?? Gag me... Publicity stunt. She is so fake, I can't stand it!!!

GagMeWithASpoon! said...

I don't know if the actual party has started yet, but it sure does NOT sound like any kid's birthday party that I have been to. It's easy to see that have both been affected by the "reality of their lives" leaking out, and they both are medicated. It is also really easy to see that they both are Lying thru their teeth! I think she is digging the hole bigger. Yay! Ewww..she is making a point of giving each child a Birthday Kiss....she is so cold and insincere with her own children.

Jennifer D said...

I was a single mother of four children for MANY years. I worked cleaning other people's homes (houses like the Gosselin estate) and I went to college full time.

I did not have ANY help. Yet Kate can complain about how tired she is after stuffing pinata's? She is doing it all alone? REALLY?

Good job alienating the single and working mothers everywhere. And by working, I am not referring to someone who flies first class to a venue, spends two hours there and then goes back to her hotel suite for the evening.

DeznJay said...

Ha! Mady strikes again. She stormed off after a photo op. It's really hard to fake smile isn't it Mady? X3

Anonymous said...

My heart breaks for those kids. Kate can say all she wants that her kids are the reason she does this, but come one. They are begging their father not to leave and she doesn't care enough to walk away from the show and all of this and put her family back together. Kate, they call you the babysitters name and they want their daddy back. GET A CLUE!

AnneMarie said...

You can't blame being the parent of a multiple on the high divorce rate.

A: that would be blaming the children instead of blaming the incompatability of the adults

B: You'd have to be a parent first, which neither of these yahoos are..

=================

Not watching, but there was an article a few weeks back on a genetic link in those of asian decent and alcohol, and how it makes them flush and increases the chance for both pancreatic and reproductive cancers.

Interesting how Jon is always flushed and stoned.

Jersey said...

I am not watching but from what you guys are posting, I get the feeling that Kate is digging her own grave. You know sometimes it is better to keep your big mouth shut and let people think you are an a-hole than to open your mouth and prove you are a pompous, arrogant, ungratful bitch.

Marie said...

I'm watching it now and everything that comes out of Kates mouth is all PR crap. Blaming Jon to no end and Jon denying anything happened. All what we have seen before.

Funny, Kate went off about how much she appreciates her fans and the naysayers because they keep her where she needs to be. God, get over yourself woman!

Jon was away for the weekend of the Party City outing. It is VERY obvious Kate wants nothing to do with being a Mom. She sat at the table and ate her Ceasar salad while the boys pummeled each other in another room calling each other a "poopy weiner". She is ridiculous! She could have cared less what was going on with 8 kids while she talked into the camera during her lunch

I am very sad because there is no doubt the older girls know what is going on. Mady is like a whole new child. Very caring and attentive to Kate and the little children. . No doubt Mady and Cara already know.

It is at the Birthday party now and Kate will not even look at Jon. Alexis told Jon she didn't want him to leave anymore. So sad.

I could care less how Jon and Kate come out of this but from what I am seeing from the childrens standpoint, they know things aren't right. All in all I would say TLC scripted the interview sessions very well! Just a joke of an episode. They haven't showed the "face to face" yet but I am sure it will be just as lame as the first half.

Jill said...

I can't believe this crap. One of the little kids just came up to Jon and said, "daddy don't leave home anymore". He explained that sometimes daddys' have to go to work. TLC is just setting this show up to continue without him. This is uuuggg.
I can'e believe kate thinks touring around the country promoting her book is her job. I thought being a mother of 8 and running a household was her job. Guess her priorities have changed.
I just turned on because I was curious.
I can't watch this crap anymore.

ihatekate said...

LMAO at Kate whining about how the lighter wouldn't light then Jon immediately was able to do it.

Wow, they really can't stand each other.

OMG...I cannot believe that she is complaining about how long the party is.

OriginalThoughts said...

Bet Jon would Love a Kate pinata!

Ana said...

I loved the interaction between the tup girl and daddy. I liked how his eyebrows raised when she mentioned he was her buddy. How cute.

BTW, Kate the pinattas were supposed to be the ones where you pull the stings, not beating them to death.

Anonymous said...

OK I'm done. When that precious little Lexi said, "daddy I don't want you to leave anymore", I burst into tears. What is wrong with these people??? How are these children healthy emotionally? And was it Joel, who said his friend didn't even show up?? Ummmm...maybe b/c enough is enough. I'll never wth this show again. I'm still heartbroken for those children. Jon and Kate walk away save ur family.

Not a fan said...

If she were so concerned about the paparazzi, why not do the party at the estate? I'm sure they could find someone to donate the tents and tables.

Rosemarie said...

I can't believe Kate said the kids called her by their babysitters name. If that doesn't make her want to stay home more I don't know what will.

avidreader said...

Haven't watched in over a year and decided to tonight, boy am I sorry I did! This episode is BORING. So far, Kate is very toned down. I think her PR people are working overtime. You can tell that Kate wants to go back to her old ways but seems to stop herself. If the episodes continue to go like this, I see a possible cancellation in the future!!

The paparazi thing is bugging me too. How can you not be surprised that they are at your kid's party, when you pimp them out the way you do?

so cal in nyc said...

Is it me or does Kate seem more nervous? She's high strung to begin with but she seems like she is definitely acting (loud laughs, the "kiss train" etc.) more than I've seen before.

I agree that Jon's interactions with the kids are geuine... like a dad who has been around for a lot.

She just had an odd couch confessional about how she thinks pinatas are weird and how you aren't "supposed to beat Elmo".

I just missed an interaction between the parents. Did Jon say "I want to do it. You do it next time." to Kate with regard to emptying the pinata?

Lindsay said...

Kate is really trying hard to be nice. But no matter how much perfume you put on a pig, it's still a pig.

She really is having a hard time hiding her true colors through the "nice" act she is putting on.

Philly Hockey Mom said...

Wow...they sped through Happy Birthday at warp speed! Oh yeah, Kate couldn't get the lighter to work so Jon had to take over!

Loved when the kids boo'd the magician!

I agree that it was touching/sad when Jon and Leah or Alexis didn't want him to leave anymore and he asked if she missed him. She gave him a big hug. Very Sad!

I guess Jon is off his diet and exercise program, he looks a little flabby.

christinap said...

not watching but loving all your comments!
this family is so sad right now, what a wreck.
those poor children. they are innocent bystanders. I always hated to hear Kate say that the show would stop when the kids say so. Like 3 year olds or 5 year olds or 9 year olds would ever tell their mommy dearest that they wanted to stop totally. I pray that TLC and both Gosselin parents come to grips with the new reality that 8 children are going to be in therapy for a long time because of this.

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

This happens to a co-worker of mine who is of Chinese descent. He has one beer and looks drunk. I think it has something to do with not being able to break down alcohol. Essentially they are "allergic" to it.

KateStinks said...

Did anyone else see see when Colin is hitting the pinata and almost hits a blond haired boy, Kate bends down to the boy and her pink thong get exposed! Nice Kate.

Oh, she is just a regular mom of eight kids wearing butt floss o her kid's birthday party!

Not a fan said...

It looks like Jon's hair plugs didn't take.

Ava said...

The non-nanny sure can do hair well. We know when she is around b/c the girls' hair looks great. Kate is too busy eating salad and putting her high heels on to fix hair. Saw the older girls had to brush their own hair.

Angie said...

So are Kate and Jon seperated? When Jon walked up to the party, Kate didn't even acknowledge him. They didn't even talk the whole party. Jon sat alone at a different table. NO communication between them whatsoever. Unbelievable. It broke my heart to see the little girl tell Jon she missed him and didn't want him to leave again. Why is Kate saying "the more she takes care of the kids alone", "she's planning the party alone", she doing all this stuff ALONE. It's like Jon doesn't even exist. Jon seems very loving towards the kids right now. Kate of course "glamour queen". I'm just in total disbelief at how they aren't even speaking at this party. I guess Kate's crying segment is coming up next :rolls eyes: At least she admitted that she has been very hard on him, but of course she doesn't think she drove him to his behavior. I really do feel sorry for Jon. He seems sad and wants to put his family back together. Kate on the other hand....she seems like she wants a divorce so she can play the "whoa as me I'm a single mom of 8 role" Newsflash Kate: You are not the first, last, or only person to raise 8 kids. My grandmother raised 12 in a HAPPY home. Hell at this point Octomom gets more respect from me

in Canada said...

What a load of bull crap and pedantic damage control !!!!!K8 has a career.....not...she just travels so that she doesn't have to look after the kids !!
The kids will in a few years be so ashamed to have them both for parents. She over played the " I'm exhausted " card....J&K are so disgustingly laughable that TLC deserves them.

Anonymous said...

Can someone please tell me why Kate always looks off to the side of the camera everytime she makes a snide remark. Has anyone noticed that? She does that everytime she makes a sarcastic remark. Like when Collin walked up to her to thank her for the b-day party, and after 4 times she finally looks down after the mother that was standing with her looks down at him. Then she quickly comes up with a "Oh honey, you are so welcome!" - she is such an actress.

Marie said...

Someone else mentioned this but YES...Kate is OVERLY trying to be nice to everyone and it is very obvious and very fake. She has a new, fake, nice cackle. It is so gross. The interaction and the looks on the kids face towards the Parents show which Parent they truly do respect and know truly care for them. They light up when Jon is around and have learned to simply tolerate Kate. This Family has become so messed up. Kate needs to watch the first 2 Discovery Hour long specials and see the woman she USED to be.

Wendy said...

The "babysitter" sure makes the tups hair look nice!

so cal in nyc said...

montage of the kids' birthdays and lives was so cute but so sad at the same time. These poor kids are in the middle of a mess - real or contrived and exaggerated or not. I'm not sure which is worse at this point...

Not sure how this will come off to those who are K&J+8 fans. They will probably canonize her for being so "strong". If they have watched all the episodes though I don't see how they won't be able to tell how wrong, weird, and fake this all is.

DetroitBasketball said...

This whole episode is one big PR stung. The only genuine moment was between Jon and Leah (or was it Alexis? I'm so used to telling them apart by their hair lol.) Jon would look a little bit more honest when speaking if he didn't look stoned.

Did anyone else catch Kate earlier in the episode telling the other Mom's to go and collect everyone? I may just be a bit sensitive, but if anyone asked me to do something with that tone I'd be like "excuse me?" I'm a little pms-y, but that sounded bad to me.

Gina said...

You can tell that Kate is really trying to put on a show for the cameras, but it's not working. She can't be nice for too long, her true colors come out after a few minutes of her trying to act nicely. You can cut the tension at the birthday party with a knife.

Then, she says,"it was so touching that the kids said thank you for their party, they didn't need to thank me." Yeah, right. She would have thrown a fit if they didn't thank her!

teffi said...

Count me as one of the bad ones that couldn't help but watch.

As a child of a divorced home and the oldest of 3, when the shit is hitting the fan at home and the kids know it, then the older ones try to help out more and more thinking it will make it all better. Mady & Cara stepping up and helping out, convinces me more that their home life is beyond sad & dysfunctional.

taytart said...

i was loved seeing mady being happy and helpful and gentle with her siblings. so many more people are tuning in this season and i am glad mady won't get a bad rap like she has in the past. i wonder why they didn't have the party on their property? there's enough room and the "p people" wouldn't be able to get on the property and take pictures. wouldn't that make more sense? kate probably likes the attention.

DetroitBasketball said...

HAH on the couch Jon just said "I'm here for my kids" and didn't even mention Kate! This was in response to Kate's "I'm here every second that I'm not off working blah blah blah."

I can't believe the blatant favoring of Kate in this episode! How have they not acknowledged her role in any of this?!?! So infuriated with that.

Pauper Princess said...

OMG...I am gagging.

Kate - "I breathe because of my kids, I get up because of my kids."

Jon - "Yeah me too."

So passive-aggressive toward Jon, "I can only speak for me, I am here."

Starts to cry..."Sorry, don't want to ruin my makeup."

Gag.

STOP THIS AND SAVE YOUR D***N MARRIAGE! You can do it if you want to.

P-People said...

So she doesn't want her kids to call them "paparazzi" because the kids talking about the paparazzi at school would be just so crazy? Calling them "p-people" doesn't change the fact that they are being chased by paparazzi. Making up nicknames for the 'issue' doesn't make it better. Instead of 'renaming' what's happening in your life, why don't you put an end to it by QUITTING THE SHOW?

Oh, but it's all "for the kids" ... riiiiiiiight.

Marie said...

When asked what the future holds. They both said they are here for the kids. When they were pressed for what the future hold for THEM, as a couple. Kate said she is here for anything, and Jon just said he is here for the kids again. From the looks of it, I would say that Jon is done. He wants nothing more to do with her.

Oh poor Kate, doesn't want to ruin her make up, but will fake cry for the camera so she can get pity.

She has been trying to figure out what is happening the last 6 months? I guess while she is with her body guard in LA and all over the USA signing books, she is wondering what is going on. She looks real concerned.

Not at home said...

She just blamed their problems on the "multiples?" Seriously???

She forgot to mention she makes money because of her kids.

Buff Power said...

I don't like how she says "Very swiftly, we've turned into two different people". It didn't happen swiftly... y'all just didn't address the problems that have been there for quite some time. Very swiftly it blew up when it all boiled over...

Julie said...

I am on the west coast and truly appreciate your updates of the premiere.

And a HUGE thank you to Unorganic Mom for listing sponsors. Perhaps that should be made into a list on the homepage of which sponsors not to purchase anymore.

Thank you again for all your input!

fedup said...

Sitting here watching her cry..she seems almost human!
Jon said it the best" I am here for the kids". "It was good for the kids to see their mom & dad in one place".
Kate said. " I am here for the kids".
This marriage is so over..Jodi & Kevin spilled the beans ahead of time!

Enough with the Multiples said...

This episode is so full of contradictions and confusing statements by Jon and Kate. So many burning questions....

Is Kate finally admitting she's not a SAHM? She better be cause she calls the show work and says she travel for her job. That doesn't sound like a SAHM to me!

Does Jon not realize that if you don't like the paparazzi, you stop doing the show? Normal families without TV show' don't have these problems. Does Kate not realize that if you don't want the Paparazzi following your kids, you stop doing the show? Does Kate actually think that if she complains about the paparazzi enough they will go away? (Some how I don't think this one is going to turn out like complaining about needing a bigger house did). Why is it not okay for reporters and photographers to be paid for stories but it's okay for the tups to play with toys as advertising props??? What happened to living green??? There's those paper plates again. Does Kate really expect us to believe this actually took place on their birthday?

And finally, did anyone else think that maybe it wasn't an accident that the kids kept locking Kate out????

Philly Hockey Mom said...

Second couch interview and Jon at least is cleaned up and speaking clearer. They are sitting together but there is no interaction. Now they are apart and she is crying. Is this their last family picture? It is important to do and she is thinking back to five years ago....she is really pouring it on. They have turned into two different people so Kate says, been on going for six months. So complicated and difficult. Jon says they need to make a plan and decide what to split, and it is their business. They will ALWAYS do what is best for the kids! Jon is bemoaning the fact he quit his job to stay home more. Had to picture the future because they are headed in two different directions.

What a sweet back yard! It is spacious and beautiful.

...Amy... said...

Wow...this duo couch conversation is so freakin' tense, you could cut the tension w/ a knife. Jon admits to quitting his job 2 years ago to take care of the kids so Kate can tour the country. Kate says she's there for the kids as much as her "career" allows.

Now alone, Kate starts the waterworks, but is hesitant to ruin her makeup. Jesus...this woman is so concerned about the wrong things in life.

This is so sick...why is everything Jon's fault? She's saying it's all been falling apart over the last 6 months and that's it's complicated. Life is complicated, Kate. You got into this mess, get yourself out.

They must have taped a little on the 'tups actual birthday, as they just showed Jon walking outside w/ all the kids sans Kate (wasn't that the reported activity on their actual b-day?).

Now, to end the show, it seems like they can fake it enough to have a cook-out at the house. It looked cute, but you can tell Kate is so full of anger at all times...

Yup said...

They are SO getting a divorce. Period.

depressing episode... said...

Watching this episode, I have felt awkward many times throughout. Jon and Kate, at the very beginning, seemed so happy together and with their family. Now it seems like it's not enough. It's so sad to see the demise of their relationship and what it was when they first came into our homes with their special.

I was so heartbroken when Jon was at the picnic table and he asked Alexis if she missed him. She answered by saying, "Daddy, I don't want you to go away anymore".

In my opinion, this episode has been the most real yet. By having Jon and Kate do their interviews separate, Jon is able to get his word and opinion in without being talked over by Kate.

I was a big fan of the show at the beginning, then realized how much crap it was...as much crap as it is, this episode just re-iterated that there are 8 kids involved and I am just hoping that Jon and Kate are doing what they are saying, which is putting their kids first.

Expositor said...

Everything they have said as the show is ending leads me to believe that Jon and Kate are divorcing.

I hope he gets custody due to her mood swings and violent outburts.

Man, all that you wanted taped Kate-hope you are happy.

Whoever advised you that you should dump your husband and you'd come out smelling like a rose must be on your payroll.

Because you won't.

so cal in nyc said...

There were quite a few things in this episode that, to me, spoke volumes.

When they were being interviewed "face to face" and they were asked where they stand. Kate made a point of saying all the work she's done has been for the kids - in a very exaggerated kids. Then Jon said "I'm here for my kids. I'm home with them taking care of them. etc."

The interviewer restated the question... Where do things stand?

Kate: I can only speak for myself and I'm here.

Jon: I'm here for my kids.


To me that says he's done.


Anyone else notice that he knows (and sang) the Wiggles Fruit Salad song. Probably learned it while he was home with the kids. Wonder if Kate knows it.

Scruffy's Mom said...

They hate each other.

GagMeWithASpoon! said...

That was the phoniest thing I have ever seen..they should have had a better actress play Kate! She made herself cry, so somebody gave her a kleenex, but she didn't get all the "brown stuff" off her nose. Gag!
BTW. I am on the West Coast, but we get this show at 6pm.

so cal in nyc said...

Next week's show:

Kate and Mady in LA. Jon at home with the kids.

Me thinks there will be a lot of this this season... Kate away and doing things. Jon at home.

Anonymous said...

Kate's comments about having to do things with her children by herself are a slap in the face to all single mothers/parents out there. Many parents do this and do it well. She's not the first person to go through this. This woman needs a serious reality check. And...if my husband looked as horribly sad as Jon does, you can bet that we would be fixing all of our problems ASAP, but kate just wants money, money, money.

HannahParent said...

Next week- Did I hear right..Kate is in California with just Mady? It is probably Mady's turn as Cara had her one on one with Dad in Utah.

Expositor said...

The one thing that will always stay with me from this: Kate giving her martyr speech at the end about how she lives and breathes for her kids and how everything she does is for her kids. (When asked what the future holds.)

Jon then says, I'm here for my kids, every day. I take them to school, I am with them, I live for my kids.

One of those people is lying, and it ain't Jon.

just me said...

Jon and Kate

Quit the show for the sake of your kids and get jobs in the real world

TLC - eat the contract and cancel the show

Philly Hockey Mom said...

Next week Kate and Mady are in California and her and Mady are at the Spa and then we see Kate in a white chair on the beach! Jon said he "opted out"! It is nice to see Kate do one on one with the kids, but probably a defuser to the "cheating while on tour" thing. This ought to be good!

Sarah said...

I love how she complained that have all of the photogs is unsafe, and then talked about how her kids are safe, and happy, and healthy and yadda yadda...

Does she really not see it? Whenever she talks i feel like she's trying to convince herself as much as she's trying to convince everyone else... sadness!

wth??? said...

I just KNEW I shouldn't have watched! Now I'm seething! I have no words. They're definitely both acting. This is hideous and I want to weep for their children. The thought that those kids will be able to see these shows someday (if not now) is so, so awful. I only hope that things will get so bad (aren't they already?) that someone will HAVE to step in for those kids.

Lauren said...

Well that was a interesting episode. It seemed like Kate was playing the woe is me card in every interview.I cant believe she complains that the party is too hard and she doesn't have any help. Correct me if I'm wrong but Jon is there everyday taking care of the kids while she is promoting a picture book, so there should be no complaining at her end. I think the only thing that was really sad to see one of the girls(I think Hannah) tell Jon that she doesn't like him going away. Its a shame that the kids are the ones suffering because of their parents being total idiots.

As I was typing they just showed a preview for next week. I guess its Drama Queen Kate and Mady going to Cali for a spa vacation while Jon is home with the kids. Sounds like a winner to me.

Liz said...

Kate is so off in her own world. "I have my speaking engagements, my book tour, this and that..I'm here for the kids whenever my job allows." She is not a SAHM at all. She is the captain of this gravy train. Her priorities are all screwed up. The sheeple are going to go crazy over this episode saying how strong Kate is and how she wants the marriage to work. No, she wants the show to work. I don't even think she LIKES Jon anymore, she just wants to be able to continue the show and get her sponsorships. Over, this marriage is completely over.

I feel terrible for those kids. They were all so excited to have their friends at the party. I just feel like Jon and Kate need to stop doing the show and salvage what's left of their childhood. They didn't ask for this!

Jennifer D said...

If writing a few sentences and quoting scriptures makes Kate a "writer" then walking on my treadmill for 8 minutes makes me a Marathon runner.

She is full of CRAP.

She says she doesn't know what to do....how about this:

Cancel your speaking engagements. Get the QUICKEST flight home, even if it's in coach. (gasp!) Go to your husband and say "Honey, we have money, we have a not-a-nanny, lets go away for a few days alone. We need to talk and reconnect."

It's not that hard. Jon is pretty shallow overall. She could win him back with one good......

VB Mom of 2 Boys said...

That was just too difficult to watch. They didn't even acknowledge each other, and I agree that it seemed like whomever was in charge of the editing and/or producing was on "Team Kate".

I just saw the commercials for next week's show. I don't know if I should be happy for Mady that she is getting one-on-one time with Kate or be cynical that she is trying to butter her up to take her side if KON eventually divorces.

Buff Power said...

I think Mady has calmed down because of the situation that is happening... like she's trying to step up and be grown to help out mom. It seems like she is kind of siding with her.

I agree with the earlier poster who was the child of a divorce, that the older kids are trying to be more "grown" to help out. It's quite sad...

Sarah said...

Oh, and their couch interviews need to happen in from of a therapist, not a freaking camera crew! It's amazing to me that Kate can speak at churches about what it takes to be a good wife and mother, yet air out everything to a bunch of strangers instead of someone that might be able to help them... it's a crying shame!

um said...

Jon, regarding the party-
I think it was good for them to see their mom and dad together in one place.it's been tough right now, but um, i dunno, like i've said we will always love our kids and will come together for our kids, regardless of our relationship, or um, we have to make a plan and decide jointly what we are gonna do and that's between me and kate.and there's good times and bad times and nothings perfect and as long as our kids are safe and happy here they'll be taken care of and loved and it's really our business, i mean, that's the way it is, I know.
Kate- um um um um I have to be able to go to sleep at night and know that i have done my best.


ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhkay. This couple is DONE.

Kate Minus Nine said...

Of course the show would favor Kate. She's the main one that wants to continue it. I doubt Jon would do it, if they split (or if he had any sense).

DMH said...

After some contemplation, I've decided I am not going to post on here anymore. I think all of you at GWoP have done an amazing job and your original intent was with the best thoughts and wishes in your minds for the children.
However, I think divorce/separation/marriage troubles are not something to be contemplated about/analyzed about/discussed by complete strangers. I think they addressed the issues in this episode but it will not be addressed further in future episodes. They want to keep it private, and I will respect that. (Although her People magazine interview baffles me.)
I think the child exploitation issues/forcing the children to fake it and lie are HUGE issues and hopefully the discussion on here can get back to that soon.
See you all soon and again thank you to the moderators for all you do! :)

Anonymous said...

What gets me is that the show is portraying Kate as the victim. Like many of you have said, she contradicts herself to no end. And her acting ability, or lack there of is so evident. Her PR folks have trained her well.

When the 6 months ago comment came up, I immediately thought about what Kevin & Jodi said in their interview about the contract Kate shoved in Jon's face to sign and saying it was over.

On the one hand, yes, I would be enraged if my husband cheated on me, but I would have to look and try to determine what would drive him to do that, and that would include looking at my behavior in the marriage.

TLC is pathetic and this couple should be ashamed of themsevles for airing their dirry laundry. But I guess it's the world we live in now with shows like Jerry Springer and Maury Povich (who at one time had a decent show back in the day) talking about baby's daddy's and mess like that. The state of our culture is such that some people just don't have shame anymore....sigh! God help us all!

PS - The teaser to watch the premiere of Cake Boss to see upcoming clips for next week...ha ha ha...this is a joke.

I dont usually watch the show but I wanted today

It just made me so so sad

Those poor kids.

Slainte said...

While I despise her more than anyone, I can't help crying watching the end of the show knowing what is in the works. I can't believe two people who started with such a strong bond and who constantly claim to love their children so much have let it come to this. I wish I hadn't stopped at the old days when I was channel surfing this weekend-it would have been just a little less painful.

A concerned citizen said...

I would be soooo heartbroken if my daughter called me by a babysitters name (not that she has one).

This episode made me feel sad. Those kids seemed so happy at their party. Last year they weren't even allowed to eat their own cupcakes. I predict that Kate will start being nicer to the children simply because she doesn't want the kids to like Jon more than her now that they aren't an item any longer.

Kate treated Jon like crap and if I heard him correctly, he slams her right off the bat. When asked about the role reversal and him traveling for work he says something along the lines of not knowing how to do anything, some people even think he breathes wrong.

I def feel bad for those kids.

This is the last season and it will be with Jon and Kate doing seperate things. Just pull the plug now people.

Pauper Princess said...

OMG, what an absolute mess. I feel sad and ticked off all at the same time.

My heart breaks for those little kids.

I have two. My office at work is plastered with pictures of them, I think about them and miss them. I can't wait to get home to them. I hate to be away from them.

I wonder if Kate ever feels that way, or she ever felt that way. My impression is that she doesn't.

Level Head said...

Ok, I watched (and by the looks of things so did others).

The party was contrived and pathetic. The kids didn't look excited or happy to be there. Oh, and considering there are 6 of them there were hardly any guests/"friends" there. One of the little guys even says his buddy x can't come. I think they planned bigger and it just didn't transpire (why else did they need all those bouncy things - and only used one). I agree with Angie, they are separated. Jon arrived and they barely spoke the whole time on film. In fact they barely looked at one another. I have to say I truly felt sorry for Jon (even if it was his "weekend off"?! - WHAT is that supposed to mean????) as he sat there by himself or just wandered around. The comment from one of the little girls sealed it - "Daddy I don't want you to go anymore". That sums it up I think.

The tears later? Give me a break. Crocodile tears, that's what they were. Kate is just sad that the whole thing has imploded. For once I DO agree with her, there is no going back, but not in the sense that she means. You've been rumbled, and things simply can't carry on the way they've been. It's over. Mark my words, this "summer season" will be the last.

Why on earth they "showcased" the papparazzi so much, I don't know. I imagine it IS annoying, but unless you pointed them out to the kids at the party they were pretty far away and none of them would have noticed. After all, they're not exactly bright sparks at the best of times. Besides if you were that concerned you'd have had it on the property.

Painfully obvious that neither J or K knew who any of the kids or parents were. Sad.

So, to sum it up in one word for those who chose not to watch? That would be sad. Sad party, sad parents, pretty sad kids.

Stop. It. Now.

Bev said...

So let me make sure I understand this right...TLC promotes this show as "America's Favorite Family". Well, I'm sorry...but my idea of a favorite family is not parading all my kids in front of the cameras to earn a living...a mother who got the Hollywood bug and decides that fame and fortune is more important than being a real mother (She actually said..as long as they are healthy, well taken care of and happy then that's all that matters), and instead of getting counseling and facing taking responsibility for running your husband's ego into the ground it's easier to just keep on going...not admit that you have a deal to keep the show and make Jon live above the garage...and expect America to feel sorry for you because the papparazi is calling you out and exposing the fraud of a "family" you really are....this is not America's Favorite Family. This is "The perfect example of how NOT to be a family." Sorry TLC...what used to be one of my favorite shows is now an example of what makes fame and fortune for some families dysfunctional. Shall we showcase the Spears family next? It's really disappointing and pretty sick in my view. How can any family relate to this?? This is just a great big...throw Jon under the bus and make everybody feel sorry for poor, poor Kate party. That's what this is. Que the violins. Here come the Kate by herself shows. Now we know who the real parent to these kids is.

Sue said...

My two cents is that we are not going to really see Jon on the show anymore. It's going to be Kate and the kids. Jon doesn't live there anymore that was obvious. Basically when she is home for her "book tour" b/c she is such a WONDERFUL writer (cough, cough) he will not be there. Then when she is off galivanting again he will stay at the house with the kids. I don't have an issue with that. Better than schleping the kids from house to house BUT!!! back to my point Jon is not really going to be on the show anymore. Next week will be ALL about Kate and I am sure each week it will be Kate and "something" her exhaustion, her job, her tanning, her bra showing (during the cookout), her thong showing, wearing a short skirt and heels to decorate for a party, blah blah blah.

Checked out another site, can't tell if they saw the light or not.

kaitlinsnana said...

Jon is finished. He's gone.

Cindermommy said...

Watched. Felt guilty the entire time. Will NEVER watch again.

The show, in my opinion, was set up to show Kate in a softer light. Look how she appreciates her fans! Look at how she kisses her children! Look at how well she planned a birthday party all by herself! Look at the big fat tears which she "didn't want to ruin her makeup." Awwwww. Yuck. Jon was either thrown under the bus, or jumped under- hard to say. But he took the fall for everything, and became a strange, slightly dirty looking background character.

Nothing was answered. Not a thing. It left it wide open for everything to resolve... for Kate to save their marriage... for future books to be written and for the show to continue forever.

I am so disgusted, I feel like I need to shower. And the amount of Facebook statuses dedicated to loving JK+8 is giving me anxiety.

Sugarpop said...

I don't even know where to start with the thoughts in my head. I agree that it's being set up for Jon's presence to dwindle. She is playing the martyr to the hilt! My ex husband rarely sees our children and his "reason" is that he has to work so much to provide for them. That's the same card Kate is playing and it's just as ridiculous coming from her. What children need you to PROVIDE is YOURSELF.

One thing I think they are actually doing right is leaving the kids in the same house and rotating themselves in and out. That's good stability for the kids when there's turmoil everywhere else. The cynic in me says that's probably becuz the house is their studio! Even so, it's a good thing for them to have stability in that respect.

Kate was definitely enjoying every second of the attention. Her interaction with the other parents was so awkward -she really doesn't feel comfortable in casual social settings.

The thing that irritated me the most was her comments about how the kids had to have a birthday party, as if Jon just let their birthday go by unnoticed rather than the truth of the matter which was that she was doing a People magazine interview and book signings on their birthday weekend!

ROFL!!! Could you just imagine? The Queen would NEVER stoop so low.

Scruffy's Mom said...

Notice when Alexis asked Jane why he had to leave, and he mentioned he had to work. (That part is sad) BUT I laughed out loud because at the same time he shrugged his shoulder and looked to the camera like, "what else am I to say? Off at my mom's house because your mom is mad at me because I'm messing around on her."

Jennifer D said...

Watching her and Jon on the couch was pretty insightful. It's clearly a nicer version of their arguments. She has it all locked down in her brain: Kate is good. Jon is bad. DONE.

In her warped brain she is doing all the right things and Jon is the problem. Her being absent for 80% of the time can't be the problem- right? Her treating Jon like the 9th child is not the issue- right?


This is where she messed up: She left Jon alone long enough to THINK and to make some friends who gave him their opinions. When she was there harping in his ear and keeping him occupied with all her orders he didn't have the time or the energy to really think it all through. While she was gone he realized he was allowed to BREATHE without anyone complaining that he did it wrong.

Kate- you thought you had your monkey fully trained. Sorry it didn't work out.

LovinMyRugrats said...

This was the most horrible kind of public relations white-washing and child pimping I've witnessed so far.

It was awkward, uncomfortable to watch. An absolute sham.

Shame on these people! Shame on TLC!

I just don't know what else to say. She is a pathetic excuse for a human being.

BastaAlready said...

...if my husband looked as horribly sad as Jon does, you can bet that we would be fixing all of our problems ASAP, but kate just wants money, money, money.

Yep. Kate may be having an affair with all of her bodyguards and the produce kid at the Giant, but her heart belongs to Benjamin Franklin.

ocgirl said...

This episode really made me sad. Not for Jon, not for Kate, but for the kids. They never asked for this...they don't deserve this. Really, I hope the show gets cancelled soon. Although I don't like Jon and Kate, I do hope their marriage works out. Divorce is a yucky place to be, and no family should have to go through it.

For the sake of their kids, Jon and Kate need to work on their marriage and say goodbye to TLC.

Family first, Gosselins...Family first.

Level Head said...

Oh, and another thing! That %$^# white plastic chair was at the front door facing the driveway. I felt that this episode was contrived to meet concerns addressed on this blog, but obviously someone missed this one!!!!!!!

Thank you again to the moderators for keeping up with all of this, I have a feeling the next few days are going to be pretty busy again :)

give me a break said...

I don't feel one bit sorry for Kate. She should have treated Jon better. She claims to be a Christian woman and look how she has treated Jon in the past.

The only sad part is those eight little children. Those kids are well aware of what's going on between Kate and Jon. I bet they all are remembering Kate telling them that Mommy and Daddy will be together forever. How very, very sad.

Gina said...

Kate once said in a very early episode that she does not read or listen to any negative comments about the show. Well, she is either listening now or someone has been telling her, because she was doing a lot of back peddling in this episode. Her PR people must be working overtime. She was unbelievable. By the way, this did not come out of nowhere quickly, go back and watch the first 4 "seasons" of your life and see how badly you treated your husband. How you criticized him and made him feel worthless. How much can a person take?? If anything, this show has made me more aware of the way that I speak to my husband..I don't want to become a "Kate!!"

Anonymous said...

Didn't watch but am really enjoying reading all your posts,

I just read posts 220 thru 307 refreshed the page and have another 25 posts to go... Did either Take or Yawn mention divorce? Did the older girls seem sad? NEED MORE INFO, LOL!

Thanks!

just me said...

If she did not want the so called "paparazzi" stalking the party, why didn't she have the party at her mansion?

This week's People magazine has a
photo of her and the kids in the Party City parking lot dressed to the nines - can anyone say "photo op - and say cheese"

~Monica said...

I don't even like Kate and I had tears a couple times during this episode because the situation was palpable and real. This episode really shocked me actually - the commercials didn't elude to things being THIS bad. I had figured they would never EVER get a divorce but after watching this, it is without doubt in my mind that something very bad has been going on. And they advertised next week's episode and it showed Kate in California at a spa with Maddie (sp?) on a 'break' (from Jon).

jm.fisher said...

They were not sitting on the couch together. The lighting on the two of them was completely different and you sould see the spot in the middle where it was put together. then entire "face to face" was a sham.

Navi said...

I wonder about the parents who let their kids come to the tups birthday party, weren't they worried about the paparazzi?

Also, Jon was definitely drunk during his couch scenes prior to the party. My husband was on our laptop (he can't stand any TLC show I watch; ten tonne teen, world's most deformed mom etc) and he just looked up randomly when Jon was talking and was like that guy is hammered!

Dunwoody Mom said...

I did not watch the show - NCIS reruns on ION tv are much more entertaining, BUT, after reading some of these comments, if TLC and Kate really think a show about Kate will "make it", they are in for a shocking surprise. People watched this show because of the kids - the KIDS. IMO, Jon has not "let loose" on Kate because of his love for the children. Kate, however, does not even have the common decency to not disrespect the father of her children.

Marissa said...

This was all just really sad. I almost cried when Alexis was telling Jon how she didn't want him to leave her anymore and how she missed him. On a side note, this has got to be the most laid back and affectionate I have ever seen Kate with her kids. Not so uptight and controlling, actually hugging and sweetly talking to her kids, not yelling and screaming. As much as I disagree with Kate, her parenting, and the continuation of the show, I couldn't help but be pleasantly surprised that she is (seemingly)realizing what they are going through and trying to make it easier for them. Either that or it is all a part of the 'snow job', but in all honesty I think she is being genuine in that respect.

Emily said...

I love how they got them a bigger couch so they wouldn't have to touch anymore!! I think Kate should move out and Jon should stay there with the kids. She's never there anyway!!

happy_mommy said...

I'm just amazed. Amazed at how Kate was sooo fake and rude! She tells everyone else what to do. She said "someone" is cleaning out the bouncy thing. "You" need to get the cake from "him." Etc, etc. Just so rude. Ugh!!

Just curious... said...

I'm just curious how long TLC can play episodes dragging out the will they/will they not divorce thing. Next week Kate goes off to the spa with Mady (good for Mady, although who knows the real reason behind it!) and Jon stays behind. The tension between the 2 of them was uncomfortable to watch. Jon showed up at the party and Kate didn't say a word to him! If TLC was really a family network like they claim to be, they would pull the plug, send the kids to Jodi's house and Beth's house, and then send Kate and Jon to some much needed marriage therapy. Apparently, their "work" schedule isn't allowing much time for it.

Teach Me to Be Still said...

To back track a bit" Sweet, sweet Mady! I am so thrilled to see her treatly her siblings kindly. Maybe with Kate gone so much she now has a more positive role model in the house (babysitter)? I sure think so. Good for Mady :-)

may said...

well kate is lying about everything she says in that whole hour and ten minutes
she didnt even pay any attention to jon
she is throwing him under the bus
i dont know why jon is not mad about kate and her affair with the bodyguard

and kate didnt go shopping alone for the party stuff she went with her two bodyguards.

I really hope Jon and Kate can find their love for each other again. Their kids need for them to be together; they need to be a united front against all of the rumors, tabloids, and papparazzi. I believe Mady and Cara know what is going on-maybe not the specifics, but they know something is up. The sextuplets know that daddy is gone, but not why. Hopefully, they can be spared from the hurtful things that are being said about their parents.

Team Jon here

Kate makes herself out to be the victim! If Kate really "does everything for her kids" she would quit the book tour and be home to support her husband and help her family stay together.

When Kate was a SAHM and Jon worked Kate was always "exhausted"... she always said she couldn't wait for Jon to get home to help her...now she goes off and leaves him for days at a time and she thinks it is ok?

I feel for Jon, I really do. It is clear to me that Jon truly cares for his family and Kate cares only about herself.

Bells... said...

OMG, GOD HELP ME. Don't get me wrong, I DO NOT feel any empathy towards kate. All my empathy goes towards those 8 innocent kids. But when she was borderline being human talking abstractly about jon I couldn't help but empathasize in my own F'up way. Bottom line I got out of an intense 3 year-relationship and the straw that broke the camel's back was when my ex "thought" I had slept with someone else when I HAD NOT and went ahead and got in touch with a former F buddy and got things on. The total and complete anger and hurt it stirred in me I cannot put into words. Every vile thing about kate I totally agree with, but playing devil's advocate, if all she did was strong flirting and nothing else and jon took that as an excuse to go and bed the first girl that showed interest, well God help me I can understand the total hurt and HUGE anger kate feels toward jon. BUT I can say I didn't treat my ex like a whipped flaming piece of crap either...

But still, what that does to you and your psyche I cannot put into words. And we weren't even married with 8 kids...yet again I fall back on I feel I was a warm, giving girlfriend and not a nagging, ungrateful shrew either..either way, it was very hard to watch this episode..I did tear up in spots. Mostly during jon's conversation with Alexis. To those that say all of this is done for ratings..I totally disagree. Either that or keight and TLC are the MOST VILE things ever to touch the hands of kids because five year olds would NOT GET THIS. Mature adults have trouble understanding doing all of this sh*T for ratings. Keight are done. I totally belived kevin and jodi from the get-go, I do so now even more.

youjustwouldn'tunderstand said...

I wanted to see more of the birthday party! That's the ONLY reason I was watching!

Katie said...

Kate plays the VICTIM role, very well. They should give her an Emmy. She really needs help, seriously. She needs counseling. She has shut out her entire family from her life. How long until she is on the "outs" with her own kids? She needs to own her own behavior and get help. Jon needs help too. I feel so sorry for those kids. And people - lay off, Mady...poor kid - she can't help it.

LG said...

I frankly doubt that Jon "cheated" on Kate. I feel like both checked out of this relationship long before the affair. I think they were broken up already before the affair and that the marriage has been a sham since it was discovered. JMHO.

The Project said...

Long time reader, first time poster -

Wow. I guess now we know just how fake that blog was. Why put up a blog full of b.s. when everything would come to light anyway?

Honestly, the episode was pretty hard to watch. While I'm not her biggest fan, I am a big fan of families working together to get through the hard time. When she said that they had rapidly become two different people, she definitely seemed as though she was placing the blame solely on Jon. Yeah, he was an idiot for doing the childish things he did. However, he was in what seemed to be a verbally abusive relationship and I saw him doing the things that someone who was lashing out against an oppressive situation would do. I don't think he felt like the kids were too much. I think he probably felt as though the woman he fell in love with disappeared and what was left was the truth of her that she fought so hard to hide. You can really only maintain a facade for so long before the cracks start to spread. When the walls fall down and you're left with a person that allowed the most negative aspects of her personality to overwhelm the good - it's hard to reconcile being with that person.

I just hope that the children make it through this with the minimum amount of damage possible. The only problem being that Kate and her horrible snarky comments will work their way into their kids heads and they'll have a false sense of what has occurred. I don't think Jon would've acted in the manner that he did had Kate not become so very cruel. No one can tolerate that much berating and derision for their entire lives. Nor should they have to. It's a real shame that she couldn't open her heart enough to work through it in counseling. Now she gets to play the victim and garner praise for being oh so strong. But what's going to happen when she writes the divorce book and is out on the book tours and speaking engagements? I can only hope that John steps up to the plate for those kids. They deserve nothing less than a parent that's really going to stand by them.

And the way she manipulated the children's words. They didn't say "There's the paparazzi, mom!" as she said. He asked WHAT it was after she'd already said it. Then she chastises him for saying it? Oh come on. And how unresponsive were Carla and Ashley when she was trying to be "congenial" with them at the setup? Their silence spoke volumes.

Kate Minus Nine said...

Oh they are so done. They're talking about staying friends for the kid's sake, but it's obvious they have very little affection for each other.

Andrea said...

Alright - I'll admit it. I cried at the end of this episode. I can't STAND Kate and am wishing with all my might that this show is cancelled, however it just breaks my heart to see a marriage fail. To see what used to be a seemingly happy couple become so hateful makes me incredibly sad and angry.

These kids do not deserve this. I hate it so much for them! I can't imagine how awkward everything in their lives is now, with Mom & Dad not being there together.

CANCEL THIS F*$#-ing SHOW!!!!! Then maybe the Gosselins will be able to salvage a tiny bit of what they've lost.....

Mother of Two(couldn't afford more...) said...

I agree with what Angie posted: Kate actually makes octo-mom look good.

Heidi McClelland said...

Kate better watch out, because when the ratings start to tank because no one wants to watch when they aren't a family anymore, they will turn it on her and how nuts she is.
It is terrible to see how fame has warped her sense of family and sense of "reality".

jill said...

My bet is they file TOMORROW!

I found this episode very real. Very sad. Depressing. Watching, what started out as a normal family, fall apart. There is no going back...sad.

mirele said...

Fancy Feast is a sponsor of this trainwreck? OMG. I don't know what I'm gonna do. The cats live for the salmon flavor.

Iowa Mommy...... said...

It's sad to see the end of a marriage haooen right before your eyes. I feel bad for those kids but they are probably better off. Mady was so different, benefiting from them being apart. IMO, Jon was very cavalier about it all, could care less. I don't know, with 8 kids a marriage is worth fighting for. It's just sad....

Ohsocarrie said...

Um....how UNCOMFORTABLE did that episode make the viewer?!?! Clearly, Jon is not living at home at that time. It was like watching some Lifetime movie of the week about a family falling apart. I have to give Jon credit though, he nailed the drunk kicked to the curb Dad.

P.S. Kate is soooo full of chit!

WattaJoke said...

I had to give in and watch this episode. Living only 15-20 from the G's I like everyone in this are am curious. The rumor mill is rampant here in Berks Co.

With that being said, I had to watch. But I have a different take on it. I was kind of surprised at what they DIDN'T say. Jon's lack of comment to some questions, IMO spoke volumes. When the 2 sat down together and they asked them where they're at now, Kate went on this (obviously) rehearsed speech about where she's at. Jon simply put, said "I'm here for the kids". There was no, "oh we're going to go to counseling and push through this". Nothing of "we're determined to trust God and rely on him to get us through". Nope, nothing.

The awkwardness between these 2 was profound! The tension was evident. The looks he shot her at the party and her completely ignoring him, said it all.

I personally think they've crossed the point of no return. Any of us who've ever been in a relationship, that's beyond repair knows that point.

I know a lot of people say that Jon is completely at fault. But my feeling is, you can only beat a dog so long before he breaks. She has humiliated him to the point of it being uncomfortable to watch. A person (man or woman) can only take that abuse so long. I think that verbal abuse can push people to do crazy things.

I think Kate does look worn and stressed. Yes, of course, I think much of it was staged. But I also thought she looked terrible. Also, if she thinks the kids don't know and this isn't affecting them, she is SO sadly mistaken.

IMO, this marriage is over. File the papers, ask God for forgiveness and call it a day.

LovinMyRugrats said...

Marie,

I TOTALLY noticed the fake nice cackle, too. Everything that came out of her mouth was clearly rehearsed with her team of personal assistants and TLC.

It's so obvious that they tried to coach her -- it was a personality makeover. They're trying to undo her shrew-from-hell, self-important image that's so prevalent in the blogosphere, tabloids and entertainment channels.

And you know I have the saddest feeling that it will probably work. From the "Everyday People" teaser to that awful fake cackle she's doing -- the viewing sheeple will lap it up. Hell, they've probably gained scores of new sheeple. And the show will go on and on.

Mandy said...

They showed a clip of the Emeril episode during the marathon so it looks like the few episodes that have already been filmed will go on. They were probably already taped before the mess hit the tabloids. The cookout at the end looked like it was taped before the birthday and they just edited more current comments in.

blueyedangel1207 said...

Kate's comments about having to do things with her children by herself are a slap in the face to all single mothers/parents out there. Many parents do this and do it well. She's not the first person to go through this. This woman needs a serious reality check.

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

Thank you! I am a single mom raising 2 kids by myself. Do I have help from time to time, sure but every single day I am the one doing EVERYTHING for my kids.

That little clip they had on there was basically a slap in the face not only to me, but all single moms out there.

Grow up and stop complaining because if there is to be a divorce those kids are going to need you a whole heck of a lot more than they have you now.

jenny said...

Just to clarify the "IT Analyst" position - it is possible for Jon to have held that position. My husband is in IT and is currently an analyst. Its just a level ranking, like many careers have. I talked to him about it and he (who has an associates IT degree from '01) said "in this current market" its harder to get that position without a degree, but it is based on experience, mostly. Someone who entered the IT field before Y2K would have had a very good shot at getting their foot in the door straight out of HS, in fact I know a few that did.

Greedlins gotta go said...

What a contrived bunch of BS..Kate is not fooling anyone, and it amazes me that she cant figure out that SHE is the problem in her marriage. Jon sits there like a pouty adolescent and has an attitude saying its between him and Kate..newsflash Jon..when you sell your kids out for money you are inviting the public into your world so how dare you act like its none of the public's business..Kate and Jon are complete embarrassments as parents and human beings and I shudder to think how they treat their kids when the cameras are off because there is no way the kids are not being affected by the tension and negative energy between their parents..Jon looks drugged and to watch Kate pretend to cry? Give me a break! God forbid her tangerine tan gets messed up..they are both repulsive!!

Kelly said...

My sister-in-law lives only a few miles away from Kon. We went up for a Memorial Day cookout, and I just had to drive past the Konpound. You can, too:

http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&tab=wl

After hearing the stories about Katezilla, I have to admit I was somewhat apprehensive as I approached the house. There was a dark SUV going very slowly in the other direction. I turned around at the end of the road and went back, and the SUV was once again going slowly in the opposite direction. I was about half concerned that Steve the bodyguard would jump out of the truck, pull me out of my car, and break me in two. On Kate's orders, of course.

My sister-in-law showed me the new US Weekly article about Her Kateness, and basically confirmed the allegations contained therein. Kate apparently IS a total B*TCH, concerned only about herself, and that Jon and the kids are basically steppingstones on her road to stardom.

After seeing this large estate, I certainly hope that they are not still hitting up gullible churchgoers for "love offerings".

Angie said...

Ok, so Kate says she and Jon have become 2 different people and that he's not the man she married. Hhmm..Kate have you ever thought about YOU are not the woman he married. She's upset that he doesn't want to be in the public eye, do speeches etc. anymore. Why does she see this as a bad thing? Maybe Jon wants to go about this life and have his kids live a somewhat normal life WITHOUT a camera around 24/7. What's wrong with a little privacy and normalcy? Kate on the other hand wants more attention and fame and thinks that that's perfectly normal. Honestly, I think she hates the fact that he doesn't want the same as her because it's letting the world see who's in it for the kids and who's in it for the fame. People are finally seeing who Kate really is and her defense is to throw Jon under the bus and play the "hurt, cheated on, wife". When it boils down to it, money,fame, free trips don't mean anything to kids but a parent's love and quality time does. Yeah Jon has his faults, but I honestly believe he has a genuine love for his kids. If Kate is really in it for the kids, then why not spend more time at home. Cut back on your "work" schedule. You don't HAVE to be gone for 3-4 weeks at a time and only spend a few days at home. If you really want to work on your marriage STOP this show, stop the interviews and photoshoots. Jon has made sure to say that this is between the two of them, yet Kate goes to People magazine and spills her guts. Kate is the one who has changed and it's sad that she doesn't realize it. Maybe Jon should give her a reality check and leave her and take the kids. He's pratically raising them on his own anyway (Hence Kate being called the babysitter's name). Maybe then Kate will realize that her career really isn't anything without them. And to be such a loving mother who "lives" for her kids, she sure did a lot of complaining when she was at home with them. "Oh I'm exhausted, I'm alone, I'm doing everything on my own" Please Kate! What, this is the first time you've been with them in weeks. If you love them so much you would be overjoyed to be with them, especially with you being gone so much. I'm really interested in seeing how this all plays out. Hopefully Jon will step up and protect these kids from this woman.

jill said...

Just think of all the stuff they have and the things they have done...

None of that matters if it ruins your parents marriage.

Those children would have been better off with a small house, less money and parents that loved each other.

Kate once said they did the show to document the kids lives...like home videos.

Sad. The kids will only remember their parents marriage by watching re-runs. I hope all the free Ann Taylor and Gymboree are worth it.

ShakingMyHead said...

So, not even a year ago, they were in Hawaii for their vow renewal and Kate REPEATEDLY told her children that MOM and DAD will stay together FOREVER! What must those lost, innocent souls think about Kate and her promises now?

Shannon said...

I didn't plan to watch, but I did anyway. Seriously, this hour and 15minute show of Kate! Kate! Kate! seemed to drag on forever.

I too noticed that Jon looked and sounded like he was drunk during his interview. Granted, I think BOTH of them are the cause of their problems, but it's a shame that TLC would show 10 minutes of Kate on the couch acting like a single mom, while Jon had like 30 seconds to explain his side of the story. Honestly, as much as it pains me, I think Kate is the smart one in the situation to attempt to make herself sound pitiful. Obviously TLC is going along with it to save their show. My guess is there are fans who don't pay attention to gossip who will buy her woe is me ploy.

Jon really, really looks like a dimwit for not really saying anything about what she is doing. It's obvious he hated every minute of doing that show.

In some sick, twisted way, I think Kate loves the attention, but it couldn't be more clear that their marriage is over and they are heading for d-i-v-o-r-c-e. Actually, I think that is the best thing they could do for all of them. For all of Kate's complaining and the tension between the two, there is no way the kids aren't picking up on what's going on.

One thing to note: Notice Kate said one of the kids called her by the nanny's name. Meanwhile, the kids acted thrilled to see Jon, and one of the girls was begging him not to go away again.

That alone proves to me which one of them is the true parent to these children. I think Kate is so oblivious that she doesn't see that all her bragging about her book tour, business trips, and "being there for me kids when I'm not busy" is going to hurt her in the future when the issue of custody comes into play.

In the long run, unless they figure out how to once again fake being a family, I can't see this show going on much longer. That was one of the most uncomfortable times I've sat in front of the tv.

PunkyPower said...

Why is it that Kate feels she needs to constantly remind everyone when she does something by herself? BFD - LOTS of parents do things all by themselves. She can't even go to the store without saying she's doing it "by herself." I suppose that's her way of telling us Jon isn't in the house for some reason. So, when Kate is out of town for her "job," does Jon walk around saying he's doing everything by himself?

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

Jenny you are SO RIGHT!! My husband works at a hospital and the Anaylst positions are mostly held by people who were previously nurses. Yes they work with computers none of the have IT degrees at any level and none of them have IT certifications like a MCSE or CCNA. Yes I know this is NOT true of all IT analyst.

IH8K8 said...

Kate was maddening as hell in this episode. I can't believe her complete lack of self-awareness in blaming everything on Jon. She's completely delusional. And also trying very hard to manipulate the situation and throw him under the bus. What a shrew! She said that she was absolutely tough on him the past ten years, but she believes people make their own decisions. So basically, she's going to be a bitch and Jon just has to take it? If he doesn't take her B.S., he's making poor decisions? She doesn't think that behavior has anything to do with the problems that they have? She doesn't think that she's making poor decisions? UGH. She is so full of herself, it's just disgusting.

If I had to hear her make a big deal out of the paparazzi one more time, I was going to scream. If I had to hear her say how exhaaauuusted she was one more time, I was going to scream. If I had to hear her talk about doing everything alone one more time....!! Duh, Kate, we all know that you've been away for months. Alone, my rear end.

I found myself saying, "Go, Jon!" when they were on the couch and she said she was there for whatever, and he said, "I'm here for my kids." I'm really glad that he got it in there that he quit working so that Kate could do the book tour/speaking/traveling thing and that he was the one home with the kids all the time. When he said, he couldn't write...neither can Kate, we all know she didn't write those books.

TLC is a bunch of scumbags for exploiting this family while they're falling apart.

And why are five year olds still in high chairs??

Zephrine said...

That bloated husk of a rabbit, so weary of his lot in life life and unable muster any resistance to the demands and abuse of the masses, he reminded me of Jon.

T.v. gods, please end the suffering. These two never will.

CopMama said...

I, I, I... me, me, me...

Did anyone hear the words "our" or "us" come from either of them during that episode?

No "our kids" or "our family."

So sad.

JerseyShore said...

There are tons of single moms, widowed moms and divorced moms (and dads) all doing it alone also. The BIG difference is that Kate is a millionaire who can afford many luxuries the "normal"single parent household cannot such as a mansion, paid nannie or child care workers, cooks, housekeepers, gardeners, etc. Hell, she hasn't been home long enough to do homework. She is the last person who should be complaining.

Anonymous said...

I'm emotionally spent. I think the pivotal moment was when they were asked about their future. Dead silence. Kate finally spoke up and said something to the effect of "I'm here." Jon said, "I'm here for the kids." That was it. He's checked out. I had a boyfriend for a year who was verbally abusive. One day he did something so mean and over the top it shocked me back into reality. I broke up with him and as someone told me later, my "personality started coming back." That was almost 20 years ago, I've been happily married to a considerate man for 15. I think Jon's done. When Kate tried to order him to give her the pinata, he ignored her. When she griped about the bbq just starting, he blew her off. It's over. He wants his dignity back. I also think Kate's tears were real. I think she was stunned. She's Scarlet O'Hara, and I'm afraid it's too late.

Kon is Wrong said...

This episode was ridiculous! Kate doesn't believe that the kids are at fault, but she correlates the demise of the relationship to a statistic about multiples and marriage success!!! It's not the kids...it's YOU!!!! WAKE UP!!!

Mady and Cara are probably bargaining...it's part of grief. My sister and I went through the same thing when our parents divorced. We thought maybe if we acted better and more helpful, our parents might get along. If they do not get those kids in counseling immediately and if Kate does not get her dental floss sporting butt home more often, they are going to have some serious problems. It is as if Kate is delusional...she does not see how being on tv could destroy her marriage. If it is all about the kids as she says so many times, then she would try to work on her mariiage and put the speaking and book tour on hold for good. I can't believe that not that long ago, she was promising the kids that the vow renewal meant that they would be together forever. It seems like Jon was done when she started leaving constantly with the bodyguard in tow.

Emma said...

This episode made me sad for everyone involved. My parents went through a nasty divorce and after seeing how much pain it caused my family, I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. Regardless of whether or not Jon and Kate were lying, there's obviously something going on and I hope they can work it out for themselves and the kids.

mikemom said...

and how do they explain this to the kids after the vow renewal, mommy and daddy will be together forever. I truly feel sorry for the kids, all the trips, big house, freebies, cant keep mommy and daddy together. Just goes to show whats important in their life, or should I say Kate's life. Pull the plug TLC, let everyone have a normal life whether together or not......

LovinMyRugrats said...

mirele,

That was a great non-sequitur about the Fancy Feast :-) That cracked me up.

IH8K8 said...

I'm also very tired of Kate saying that they can't get out of it now, it's not going away now, she doesn't know what to do..blahblahblah. She is so full of herself to think that people wouldn't just move on to the next new thing. People would forget about her faster than she thinks.

Go away GREEDlins said...

Yes Jon thats really mature, referring to your boys as the 'three stooges'..how sad for them that they have such an immature, frat-boy wanna be as a father..how sad also to see Kate displaying her anger and frustration at the kids..literally pushing one of her son's away as he approached her at the kitchen table and then she proceeds to holler after them 'BE KIND" What a complete shrew she is..so totally selfish and she has no care at all for how her anger/issues will affect those kids in the future. She obviously does not appreciate or enjoy her kids..she sure does enjoy her spa-ISH lifestlye though!

karma said...

Let me get this straight, after Kate was gone all those days in April and early May including tanning on the tups' real birthday and Mother's Day. (Jon was photographed picking flowers with the girls while Kate was pictured tanning.) She dogs Jon about being gone for a week-end? She's not fooling anyone. Kate loves the paps following her, she has to keep pointing it out all the time. It makes her and the show seem that much more popular. I thought they looked fake.

Gypsy said...

I counted the days, the hours, the minutes until the season premiere of "Jon & Kate plus 8" and they didn't disappoint me. Kate is all class. Jon held his own. The children shined. Kate was honest and open. Jon tried ... altho, he's got a major attitude. As long as Jon & Kate plus 8 is on, my TV will be tuned in. LOVE 'EM ALL!

ManicNarcissism said...

I almost believed Kate but she made one mistake she didn't even realize.

No one wears a thong who is not showing off for someone! We sure as heck know Jon isn't looking at it, so who is?


I used to work full time and my DD would slip and call me nana. She also always wanted her nana when we were all together. It broke my heart. I hated working but had no choice.

SaNdY said...

How snotty was Kate when the 2 of kids came crying to her while she was eating in the kichen before they left for Party City?? She was so fake and so 'get outta my face'...it gave me the chills...on the other hand, how cute was Joel throwing away his paper plate(Gosselins Go Green? Yeah, my unnawears)and almost throwing his fork out, too...but stopping and smiling and saying noooo..adorable!
