US Weekly

US Weekly reports the first episode of the new season isn't complete. Should they include their marital woes in season five or how should they address the problem? The majority vote may be ditch the show, but they're already part way through filming the season.

Cover, page 1, page 2, page 3, page 4, page 5, and page 6.

I am glad to see someone in the media is finally saying that J& K are not who they used to be. I am also glad he mentioned the money stuff, too. So many media folks just seem to kiss their a!*.

Disgusted in VA said...

I don't expect them to cancel it. Too much money to be made.

Theresa in Reading said...

What bothers me about this is how Kate is thriving on being in the media/public even if this is ALL negative press. If it were me (and no I wouldn't sell my children's childhood to gain monetary things for me and my hubby) I would be humilitated and would shrink from the media.

But not Queen Katie. She is thriving. It is like air to her. Without it she would be nothing.

Mandivj10 said...

I was a supporter of Jon and Kate not to long ago, but after reading this site and with the recent drama I'm shocked they don't take their show off the air. I read somewhere that Kate has called her remaining friends and begged them not to leave her and her family because of all the paparazzi. When will it get to the point when she figures out that this show is ruining her life?

RobandKimplus1 said...

No way will they cancel the show TLC is as shameless as J&K.

Jon and Kate plus Divorce papers said...

The reality in this reality show is that in the end the kids will pay dearly for all that those 2 kooks put them through all in the name of making a quick buck, and what will become of them later in life will also be based on what is happing now, I feel sorry for the kids the most.

Free the kids already, you made your point now get the freak off the air and live your lives privately like us normal folk do!!!

littleangelkisses said...

"Marc Berman, senior television editor at Mediaweek, tells Usmagazine.com all the scandal could "a problem for the show. Suddenly, the focus of the show is not on the children -- it's on them."


HAHAHAH!! As if it didn't become all about them over the past few years, THIS isn't what did it? Hello?? Remember the tummy tuck? The "makeover"? The hairplugs? How was that NOT about them? It sure wasn't about the kids!

RobandKimplus1 said...

Oh, and I did email Discovery/TLC and expressed my disgust with the show. No Reply. Pathetic!

homeschoolin mom said...

They are trying to incorporate their woes in the show.... but are running late? It can't be because there is not enough fodder- the writers must be trying to pick out just one fight per episode, but have to much to filter through!

She Makes Howerd Stern Look Normal said...

Or....they are scrambling for scenes of Jon and Kate TOGETHER because what they had was just Kate and the kids, or Jon and the kids. They need stuff of them together to try to squash the rumors.

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

Kate has the bodyguard to protect Kate from herself. He's there to control her in case she starts screaming at someone. She has very poor impulse-control.

This is my favorite line from the article. (BTW: Thanks, mods, for posting the link!)

"They began making money," Berman says of Jon and Kate. "Suddenly, they're not who they are anymore. They're this Hollywood couple. You get all this money and ultimately it kind of changes who you are."Oh really? Ya' think??

Kate Now Designing For Walmart

Did anyone see Rachel Ray today? She gave away some awesome swag including videos, gift cards from Walmart and her NEW designs from OshKosh! I am so super excited! We figured there was something going on while visiting corporate headquarters last week in Arkansas! Are you excited to see Kate's new childrenswear? What did you think of the first outfit??

Jessica said...

guys! there's a poll - What Celebrities do you loathe? guess who is one of the four!?!?

http://www.usmagazine.com/news/us-poll-what-celebrities-hair-do-you-loathe-200975

Mandy said...

Jessica - unfortunately it is what celebrities HAIR do you loathe.
I still voted for Kate, just not as excited as I was about a mainstream media outlet recognizing the dislike/disgust for Kate Gosselin.

TraumaintheERagain said...

Instead of calling her Katie Irene, we should call her Katie Illusion. Because she's not living in "reality", it is all an illusion that she expects us to believe.

Did Katie Illusion change her body guard because he knew (and was) too much or us "animals" were figuring out too much? Either way, she looks guilty. An innocent woman would have kept the same body guard or even questioned why she even needs one in Reading, PA or Benton, AR?

KonNoMore said...

Oh my Oh my this story just keeps getting bigger and bigger. Kate's "Cheating allegations" are on both Yahoo and MSN home pages. I am sure this will be the lead story on every gossip show this evening. As for the poster that commented on Kate begging her friends to stay, those so call friends she is talking about are paid to be around her, bodyguards, production crew and pr reps. She has alienated her parents, her siblings, her friends, her husband, and now her children who have all loved Katie Irene unconditionally. My speculation is TLC will air the episodes they have filmed and J&K will finally come clean and say that yes, they don't live together anymore and Kate is pursuing her dreams of having a career, sorry "money, money, money.

Kate Gosselin defends herself in light of rumored affairSpeaking of animals...quack, quack, quack.

NahnCee said...

"She is thriving."

Disagree. The picture with the latest story shows extremely deep lines around her mouth, the kind caused by worry and/or stress. I'm thinking Missy Kate is a-tossin' and a-turnin' at night.

Thanks for the link! I think the tide is truly turning....

dee has had enough... said...

Associated Content.com:

This is another shocking revelation in the story probably better called "As the Gosselin world turns." It seems that there is a new drama making its way through the Gosselin family almost daily now, and that every time Kate Gosselin makes a television or magazine interview appearance that she is bringing up something new. Not only that, but it seems that it is Kate herself that is helping spread these rumors by giving credence to things that she says aren't even true in the first place. Maybe it is time for Kate to take a step back from the spotlight for the time being, and to just let the rumors of everything blow over.

Too funny!

Jessica said...

haha too funny, i got too excited i missed the hair part Mandy. sorry! but still, another chance to openly loathe her online.

Vicki said...

The "world" is waking up.

When I logged on this afternoon, MSN Homepage, clicked on the Kate cheating headline, there were something like 600 comments already. I can't read and scroll through all those but the ones I scanned were negative. Many of the editorials and polls are pretty indicative, too, of the public being fed up (in general) with reality shows, disgusted with the Jon & Kate parade and wanting news or information that is worthy of our limited time and energy. I mean, who has patience anymore for this kind of Jon and Kate baloney?

Britt's Mom said...

I haven't watched the show in months, and agree with a ton of what people say on this blog, but I don't think anyone deserves to have the paps follow them and their children around and invade their privacy on their property.

Imo, fame is going to ruin their marriage (if it hasn't already) but they will never be able to quit the show willingly because they have a huge housepayment and are in WAY over their head to go back to Jon's IT income!

Sad, sad for the kiddos.

Philly Hocjey Mom said...

Wow....just what I want to see, more BS and spin control. I also fired off a letter to TLC/Discovery but so far no reply. I saw a commercial last night and they still referred to them as "America's Favorite Family" and showed their picture. Actually, I was watching my favorite new family...The Hayes!

MirandaB2008 said...

in these articles, Kate speaks about the stuff Tabloids are saying, and also ' when will it end'. I think it 'will end' when they shut down the Show and turn their attention onto those 8 little children. This all HAS to be having a negative impact on those kids? Wouldn't you think most Normal caring loving parents would say ' This has turned into a media Circus and in the best interest of our Children? we are pulling the plug?
The Show began as a means of recording videos and having pictures etc of the children because Kate & Jon were 'far too busy' with babies to be taking all the photographs for Memory books etc.
So what's the big excuse now for continuing on? If it's become too stressful for the Good of the family? close the door, turn off the lights, the cameras, the 'action' and just say Goodbye to your adoring Public ( gag)

Anonymomma said...

The papparazzi aren't following them. She's calling them. Trust me. Wernersville, PA isn't exactly Hollywood. This is definately set up by them for the sake of the new season.

She Makes Howerd Stern Look Normal said...

Or....they are scrambling for scenes of Jon and Kate TOGETHER because what they had was just Kate and the kids, or Jon and the kids. They need stuff of them together to try to squash the rumors.It's been very hard for the camera crew to get anything resembling a normal husband and wife interaction. Between Kate's death glares and silent treatment, and Jon making faces behind Kate's back, they're reduced to splicing individual footage of each together. As you can imagine, it looks pretty choppy!

Or maybe it's just taking a long time for Jon's black eyes to fade.

tallblonde said...

Ooooh - it is just so "wonderfully wonderful" to think about the example Jon & Kate are setting for their children.....wait....or is that horrendously horrendous???

Maggie said...

Lookeylook, can you email me about your comment please? shatzie1980@yahoo.com

beyondblessedinga said...

Even though I absolutly agree that the show should be stopped IMMEDIATELY, I dont know how much it will change for the kids.

Their mother (who they undoubtedly loved very much as she was all they knew) will continue to be much too preoccupied with her book career, clothing design career, and anything else she and her team can think up, now that she's nationally known as "supermom". "Going home" and caring for her kids and family is just never going to happen unless she takes some of Linda's posts to heart.

And Jon has also found his own sort of outlets. Although at least he appears to be home during the day, while the kids play outside riding their bikes and picking flowers.

But the 8 children have got to be devastated that their own parents cant be bothered to wake up with them, cook their meals, drive them too and from school, and generally just be a part of ther everyday lives.

Jon and Kate, force yourselves to go home, "hole up", send your servents for your necessities and play on the floor, admire school projects, make dinner, walk your beautiful property, look eachother in the eye, laugh about silly things on tv, just live. Go to work if you must, but then come home and be present.

I must agree you most certainly cant go back, stop wishing you could or wondering where you'd be if this hadnt happened. However, as a pp mentioned, you are on the wrong road. Cut a path through the brush, snakes and thorns and find the right trail.

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

Sam Walton is rolling over in his grave! Wal-Mart sucks! My neighbor is a greeter at Wal-Mart, he is retired, without a penseion,and needs every penny he can get. They cut his hours, even though they are the one company doing well in this recession. When we went to the Grand Canyon, there was a newspaper article in the local paper about a Wal-Mart built across the road from a Native-American village of ancient dwellings, and the Wal-Mart was somehow disrupting the natural balance of the eco-system there, threatening the stability of the dwellings. The same thing is happening with a Wal-Mart built next to some pyramids in Mexico...I have never patronized Wal-Mart, and never will....

MyTwoSons said...

It's really going to tick Kate off when she realizes how quickly the Hayes family is gaining in popularity. The parents are so down-to-earth and real with their children.

MyTwoSons said...

Wait...what did I miss? Kate is designing children's clothes for Wal-Mart?

I don't know if anyone goes on Perez Hilton's site but there was this little bit that everyone seems to be talking about:

http://perezhilton.com/2009-05-12-jk8-to-address-cheating-scandals-on-show

But my favorite part of the little snippet is this line right here in regards to what should be included in the show:
"It is a delicate subject, as the producers have to work out the legistics of addressing the scandal on the show without making it seem like they are exploiting the family for commerical reasons."

Yeah producers...cause we wouldn't want anyone to exploit the family!

Ok everyone ~ should we be bracing ourselves? It's Tuesday evening, and as we've seen the past two Wednesdays have brought fresh Jon & Kate scandal details from US mag. I can barely stand to see what might pop up tomorrow!

RealMom said...

The producers of the show are Jon and Kate Gosselin.

Vane922 said...

I just read on another site that they will be addressing the cheating scandal on the show.Will they stop at anything??

Robin said...

And the funny thing is, even if they "address" the issues...they aren't going to tell the truth anyway so why bother!

laura weiss said...

But not Queen Katie. She is thriving. It is like air to her. Without it she would be nothing.

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

In a nutshell. And is it ever sickening to see.

jill said...

Jon was seen with a 23 year old woman and told reporters he always thought he would end up in his 50's married to a 19 year old...

With that said, do you think the reason Beth split was because Jon was making eyes with her older girl? I am not saying he made a move, but he could have made some sort of comments about her that would send Beth and Bob some red flags...

What do you think?

I don't think we should spread these kinds of rumors. They have nothing to do with helping the children and as much as I don't like Jon, Beth and Bob don't deserve to have these kind of rumors being spread.

Tami said...

Oh ugh! Kate defending her affair with the bodyguard and saying YET AGAIN that 'they love us' blah blah blah. Why does that woman always say people love them? Clearly THEY love no one back! It makes me sick. Then she admits, yes admits(!) that their circle of friends and family has dwindled down to just the bodyguard and family and that they are begging them to stay! Sheeple, listen up! They do NOT associate with Aunt Jodi, Beth, family, etc, anymore!

sueshe said...

The circle of friends are diminishing...Not because of fame, Kate, because you are a flat out BIT--!!! You honestly do not know how to treat people, and instead of maybe having a chance to get a bit better (because you see what it is doing to your friends), you have gotten much worst with your success!
Boy the picture of the two of you...was that one of you better shots...snicker, snicker, snicker....

did they have a falling out i wonder...
hmm very interesting piece.
and i love that the article says kate is viewed by the locals as a person with no friends. ha ha

Ms.Peach said...

Can't wait for the scanned full article.

BTW, in Feb. at the Globetrotter game, Jon seemed bored and was texting on his phone to someone.
Who could it have been?

I doubt they have any proof about Kate and Steve, but it will be interesting to see if he still jets around the country with her. She was probably flirting with him and hopefully he blew her off. Didn't a drunk Jon tell the college coeds that he and Kate have an open marriage?

Next shoe to drop will be Star magazine.

You know, if Kate goes on with her own show or whatever, so what. The only thing that matters is that the reality show ends and those kids live a normal life. I hope Jon matures, divorces her, raises his kids as best he can, and a single Kate presses on in search of fame. She's right, they (she)can't go back. Jon can at least take a different path---the high road.

I guess Kate's PR team and TLC was tipped off about the tabloid stories. Once again, the early denials show her for the liar she is. Can't wait to read the full Star story.

So let's guess, the ratings will be huge for the Season 5 premiere but at least the dirt is coming out.

Kate is designing childresnwear for oshkosh/walmart???? Are you kidding me? She has admitted she has no fashion sense. I'm sure she's had help w/her current wardrobe.

It's disgusting what normal people go to school and struggle to get into industries that a "famous" person is just handed because of their "high visibility".

Disgusting.

And if she still thinks she doing this for the kids, I'm wondering what part of this has increased the quality of life for those children. If kate would be happy, those kids would be thrilled anywhere, in any size house, with a mom working as a nurse and a dad doing IT work. And neither one of them would have time to be at bars and being absentee parents(ie traveling for "business"), in the name of "the children".

Kris said...

It's getting uglier US Weekly has another article, this time about all their freebies.

Buh Bye Katie and Jon.

msrylee said...

FYI, The London Free Press (Ontario) printed a picture of Kate and her denial of her alleged affair. Must really be a slow news day for the paper to pick up this "story". Or not..........

Momof2inMA said...

http://www.tmz.com/2009/05/12/kate-gosselin-target/

Harvey Levin of TMZ was on our local radio show this morning, the host asked him about "the family with a 1000 kids, the wife is cheating, you know who I mean" Harvey replied "JK+8" he said she gets FREE stuff at target, promo deal, and the "gravy train" as he put it will end if S5 isn't a hit- so all this crap about the affairs is to stir up ratings- disgusting.

Hey homeschoolin mom! I'm one too.

I think it is because they are waiting to see what the "story" is that is out there before they put it in the can. Where is this story going to end? It is going to look pretty stupid for Jon or Kate to deny an affair if after they say "cut!" US or Star has videos or more pictures. They want to spin this, but they are not quite sure what they are spinning yet!

I think it's so funny if you go on amazon.com and find the 8 faces book. Every single review of the book on there gives it 1 star and calls it the worst piece of trash ever published. Nothing better than a 3rd grader book. On Monday there was one 5 star review from some delusional person.

And then I saw that the book is only 48 pages in length!? How is that even a book? That's more like a brochure. Certainly not something that requires the author to criss cross the globe trying to hawk it to everyone.

LisaNH said...

While my intent is not to defend Kate, I must say, I do find it hard to believe that she would have an affair. They reason I think that is because she is such an Ice Queen. Wouldn't having an affair involve some type of emotion like passion? I don't see Kate being passionate about anything except money and fame. Plus she is such a diva now, wouldn't having an affair mess up her perfectly coiffed duck butt haircut or smear the "instant orange tan" lotion? And lets not forget, having an affair would mean one or more of the parties involved would get dirty and messy and Kate doesn't like dirt or messes.

Ms.Peach said...

I want to say that I am not a health care professional, so I have stayed away from such discussion on this board. However, from a common sense point of view, it seems to me that Kate and Octomom both share some type of personality disorder.

Further, Kate's infertility story is a crock. I think she duped her doc. We'll probably never know for sure unless there was a test performed to confirm the diagnosis, but with being friendly with the doc at the hospital, trained as a nurse, I'm thinking she got the diagnosis she wanted test or not. Oh well, it's all water under the bridge now.

We'll see how all this publicity plays out. Poor kids.

CalamityJane said...

I've never commented here, but I've been reading this blog for a couple of months now. I never followed J&K+8 that closely, but what I did see of them began to genuinely concern me, which led me here.

I apologize if someone has posted this already--if so, I missed it in my quick scan of today's comments. This morning, Us Magazine posted an article on their site: "Jon and Kate: How Much Money Is at Stake." I'm glad to see that someone has tallied up all of the freebies. Maybe that will open some people's eyes.

Wow I haven't been here in a while and it's interesting what's coming out. I'm not gonna lie, after the first Jon & Deanna story came out I was hoping that Kate WOULD finish this off in privacy (Assuming that Jon wasn't really allowed the girlfriends). I don't think Cara & Mady are walking alone to the corner store and will pick up a magazine with mommy and daddy on the cover, but this will not go away from them forever. Eventually they'll know and have questions. And I don't know, I just don't care about Jon & Kate anymore, I care about those poor kids. Kate's intentions (if ever pure) for those kids are obviously down the drain. I really wish there was something I Personally could do for them...IDK...

I definitely agree. I'm in college, studying Child & Family Development, and am hoping to get a good paying job after paying tuition for four years but it's looking VERY grim, and I may end up in college to be a NANNY. It's so frustrating, they make $50k a show, and I'll be lucky to make that in a YEAR! It's terrible how the people who are out here trying to protect the kids barely make enough a year to feed their own! My heart sank after I found the very few high-paying jobs in my field that would not require more education and more expense. It definitely hurts, but I guess like everyone says: "Life isn't fair"

People's cover story is "We might split up". She believes he did have an affair.

Standing ovation to Kevin and Jodi for standing up to these two frauds. Hopefully Jon and Kate get knocked off their pedestals and the children get their life back.

Bravo Kreiders! Bravo!

Jen K said...

Steve's back...way to be low profile, Kate. She looks like a clown. Seriously...the red leather jacket, tan shoes, denim skirt, PINK shirt and brownish-red bag with white sunglasses. I think she hit every color of the rainbow with this ensemble.

She is loving this negative attention a bit too much.

I was looking at this picture of Deanna and it looks like she is into handbags! I'm no expert in that department, but I'm thinking the one she is carrying in this photo is a designer one? My former co-worker used to buy a new designer one each month and I think this looks like one she may have brought to work with her.

Those pictures on Just Jared are too funny. Doesn't that woman ever close her mouth? It looks like she changed her trashy outfit for her 700 Club appearance.

How can one call this scenario a success? It seems that they define success as how much money and fame one can earn at the end of the day. It does not matter how it is earned.

On this link that CalamityJane posted: http://www.usmagazine.com/news/jon-and-kate-how-much-money-is-stake-2009135

It says: -2 purebred German Shepherd puppies: $1,000-$3,000 per dog

Where did these puppies come from, nonetheless two? Are they on Season 5 maybe? Didn't Kate mention not having time for dogs (and really she doesn't)...So.... I don't understand. And 2 is bad enough, plus I hope they get Cesar Millan in there because I can't imagine any of them controlling 8 kids and training those Shepherds. Sheesh.

Dunwoody Mom said...

Anyone else think TLC can go on with this show? I don't. The world now knows these 2 for the frauds they are.

lilmamaD said...

HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!! YES!!!! The cat's out of the bag about all the free swag!!! And I am so glad to see this statement made in this article:

Marc Berman, senior television editor at Mediaweek, says producers cannot continue to portray the Gosselins as an everyday family trying to raise eight kids.

"Their lives have changed - they're not struggling anymore," Berman tells Usmagazine.com. "They're eating at fancy restaurants now. Yeah, they still have eight children, but things are different.

Now they just need to emphasize that most importantly those beautiful children are not receiving the attention and care they need to thrive from their own parents.

Yolanda said...

Unfortunately, with all this media attention - the ratings for the first episode of the show will be phenomenal! I don't think they're going away any time soon.

Things that make you go Hmmm said...

Have they even stopped to consider for a moment the impact this circus is having and will have on their children, especially Cara and Mady? Jon and Kate can tell the kids what they want them to hear but you know that Cara and Mady are hearing all about it at school. In addition, they are old enough to utilize the Internet and a quick search on their last name will yield all kinds of terrible news for them. It's heartbreaking.

Of all the characters in this tragedy, I fear for Cara and Mady above all.

Jen K said...

Go out and buy Us Weekly this week. I know you can probably see a scan of the article online tomorrow, but vote with your dollar. They are the only publication who has bothered to look into these two. I normally don't buy celebrity magazines, but I'm buying Us Weekly this week to show my support for their coverage.

Vote with your $3.99 and let Us Weekly know you appreciate and look forward to their continuing investigation. Sure, it's a tabloid, but until Dateline or 20/20 wake up and realize this is a story, it's all we've got.

Star too...what a coup, getting Jodi and Kevin!

lilmamaD said...

Treece ~ Those dogs were obtained as a Christmas gift for the kids and it was shown during season 4. I thought it was awful before that Kate then went on to be rude about the dog breeder later during the couch interview, but now to find out that the dogs were given to them for free makes me even more mad!! How disgustingly ungrateful Kate is!!!

Jen K said...

Oh, and I know this is hard to do but consider not watching the premiere on May 25th. Some 14-year old fan will have it up on YouTube the next day anyway! :)

I fact, why not craft an email and send it to everyone in your email address book with a request to keep it forwarding on. The casual viewer may not be aware of what is really going on here. A slight nudge toward the truth could convert more people. Ask them NOT to watch the season premiere.

lilmamaD said...

Taryn said...

OK, I'm in a foul mood to begin with today, so I went to my usual entertainment blogs for a good laugh. OMG, everywhere I go, there's damn Kate Gosselin! And she's on the cover of FOUR magazines. Just go away, already! Who does the press think she is? Angelina? I don't care about Kate's marriage woes and all the crap she brought on herself by doing this stupid show and pimping out KMart and Allstate.

Nobody buy these magazines! Boycott them all!

Also, a random observation -- I think the reason the Duggars avoid this garbage is because they don't seem to accept huge gratuities and sell themselves out. They're not a brand. They still seem like a genuine loving family and have grown on me since this Gosselin crap started. Who cares if the woman wants 19 kids? She obviously loves them all and is there for them.

AnneMarie said...

LOL!THE final quote of the US mag's freebie article."If they don't evolve the show, I think the audience is going to be upset,"
he tells Us. "You can't fool an audience."=
FUNNY! They've been fooling most of them for YEARS !!!!

lilmamaD said...

Oh really Kate! Is it not enough that you humiliate Jon on the show, but then you have to be so ruthless in the new People mag? That cover makes me nauseated. They shot that pic of her at such a staged angle. When you look at it, is screams "Oh poor me!" Excuse me people while I run to toss my cookies in the toilet!!!

she really knows how to say a bunch of nothingness.

crabbygirl said...

OMG!! I do not know where to begin!! First and foremost, Michael Jackson called and he really needs his red leather jacket back ASAP, Kate!! Second of all, the waitress who found the new Twilight script is sporting the Katie Irene hair don't!! (See JustJared.com for that one) This is the quote of the week"Headlines declare that Jon and Kate “might split up” and she’ll “do it on her own if she has to.” Gasp!!!!!!" (On her own means the show and anything else she can grub out of it.) This marriage is so over and has been over.

Treece said...

lilmamaD: So they still have those dogs? I really HAVE missed more than I thought. Shame Shame...Thaks for replying. :D

discoball said...

Wow. Nice super rad 1980s red leather jacket Kate. You know if her publicity team is going to go the effort of notifying the paparazzi to show up at the local Target or at the Baltimore airport, they could maybe teach her how to dress. The mouth hanging open in every picture is very classy though.

Teryn said...

Good Gawd.....that photo of her walking through the Baltimore airport yesterday...OMG!

Who the hell does she think she is?

The drastic change between how she looked in Elizabethtown compared to now SCREAMS new money. She looks like a two-bit hooker in that photo.

I just cannot understand for one second why anybody with half a brain would want to see her in person and get her chicken-scratch autograph. Ick!!!!!!!

ManicNarcissism said...

I have many thoughts on today's Star, People, and US revelations. I have a life though, sort of, so I'll start with two thoughts and then go home school my daughter.

So, she is admitting knowing sometime about either Jon's affair, or allegations of affair. Maybe he has been denying it and she didn't have proof. Just people telling her odd things. However, we now have to look at everything she has said in the last two weeks in a different light because she knew these allegations had merit at least. Maybe she did not know if it was absolutely true, but definitely that she was already smelling a rat.

Second, Kate is NOT just now learning to picture her life without Jon. This People article is all about planting the seed to the "fans" so THEY can start picturing a show (my life is the show, and the show is my life) without Jon.

My opinion:
When we read Star we get a little truth with some sugar thrown in to make the gossip go down.

When we read US we get a some truth, and what their gut is telling them is the truth (a lot of time pretty accurate.)

When we read People and read 'between the lines' you see what Kate wants us to believe.

Annies said...

J&K's church is having an all day Marriage seminar at their church(ya know the one they are never at) this Saturday. It has many topics connecting and communicating in your marriage.

Think they will attend you guys? Wonder why the Assembly of God denomination has not got involved just to keep their good name out of this mess? I doubt if they are tithing 10% of their income as this is part of AOG beliefs.

UGH! said...

"Jon, now a stay-at-home dad, was fired from his job at Style Craft Corp in 2004 after “spending much more time” on a “quest” for freebies than working, the company’s owner, David Rothermel, tells Us. (Rothermel finally has spoken out after growing furious at the couple’s well-worn claim that he was fired because the company didn’t want to insure his family.)"

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

I could be mistaken, but I think this is the first time a NATIONAL publication has quoted Jon's former boss about setting the record straight about why he was fired. ( I know Jessica mentioned it but that wasn't a national publication).

Ms.Peach said...

Further, Kate's infertility story is a crock. I think she duped her doc. We'll probably never know for sure unless there was a test performed to confirm the diagnosis, but with being friendly with the doc at the hospital, trained as a nurse, I'm thinking she got the diagnosis she wanted test or not. Oh well, it's all water under the bridge now.

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

Actually, it's not a crock. She has PCOS, the most common cause of infertility among women. 1 in 10 women have this problem, and most women don't find out about it until they try to get pregnant and can't or have multiple miscarriages.

PCOS research has come a long way in the past few years, but doctors are just now doing proper medical research and getting the salient details out to the doctors and public at large. There *IS* no one test that can be used to confirm a diagnosis; this is why it's classified as a "syndrome" and not a "disease." Doctors have to look at a variety of indirect factors like hormone levels, body weight distribution, menstrual cycle history, blood glucose/insulin issues in order to attempt a diagnosis, and even then not all women have some or all of the symptoms/factors.

I have PCOS (diagnosed in 2005 after 4 1/2 years of trying to conceive and being mis/undiagnosed by my then GYN), and it's a tough thing to deal with, especially on the infertility front.

Not that I'm apologizing for Kate's behavior (far from it!), but I wonder how much her hormone level is directing what she's doing with her meglomania and general bizarre issues. My OB told me that women with PCOS have twice the risk of having depression and other such issues because of the hormone problems, so maybe some stuff can be explained by that?

KonNoMore said...

The reason Kate's mouth is open so much in the photos at the airport is she probably is chewing on her cud of gum.

dee dee said...

I was absolutely mortified to see the pics of Kate and Mr. Grey in the airport. She looks a HOTT MESS!!! Such an obvious cry for attention. And I'm sorry,if I was Mr. Grey's wife, he would be so out of there. While physically she looks great, her attire is SO inappropriate. She NEVER dresses like this when she's with Jon or she's out repping TLC - always look nice and respectable (if a little too orange), so what's up with the trampy wear that we've seen you in recently? Kate, I beg of you, shut up and sit down! You are doing far more to harm your kids than Jon is. Jon gave his statement and we haven't seen or heard from him since (except for the kids outside of the house - you know, where the kids are?) But you've been yapping all over the place, seemingly to whoever will listen (or pay!!), and have been photographed out for the past 4 days. Yet, the 8 kids are never with you. I suggest you arrange for the paps to take a pic or two with the kids, just to make it look like you spend SOME time with them. Otherwise, there must be some validity to the rumors about you NEVER spending time with your 8kids. I'm just saying...

lauras..andthreeboys said...

Jon and Kate just need to get off television! They have already made way more than enough money! Just pull the plug on the show and try to get back to a normal life! But, as it seems, Kate is just glowing by herself in the spotlight! No way should she be on the cover of all of these magazines! Sickening!! Go away Kate!

Psychic Belle said...

Just wondering if anyone here is from PA and can answer this question: What is the weather like in PA in April? Are the trees and lawn always that green that early in the year? It looks like the middle of summer (I'm referring to the pic of the bikini-clad woman on the grass, supposedly taken in front of the new Gosselin McMansion in mid-April).

Remember they dya when Kate used to be a real mom in the airport?
She used to take the kids to the potty and wait for the "Hair Pain"

Uggghhh

lawgirl86 said...

I'm not buying this whole contract for a girlfriend on the side. Someone please clarify this for me. Would it be enforced under the Restatement, as it's a contract for personal services? Where's the consideration? And what kind of contract is this--unilateral? If Jon didn't accept the offer, wouldn't it be a quasi-contract? And how would it be enforced; I can see monetary damages, maybe, but if an injunction or specific performance in general were executed, it would be indentured servitude. Lumley v. Gye and In re Mary Clark come to mind--was it Holmes that said you can't force a bird to sing? Anyway, if someone could clarify, I'd appreciate it. This is really bothering me.

Ms.Peach said...

In response to Bowlwoman regarding PCOS, didn't mean to offend if I did. I am aware PCOS is a real problem, but in using the term "crock", I was only speculating that Kate is so messed up that she may have, let's say, enhanced her symptoms of PCOS to get the fertility treatments quickly using her nursing knowledge and familiarty with the hospital staff. I just always found it odd that once diagnosed with PCOS she, at a young age, had fertility treatments so quickly.

After having the twins, she knew the fertility treatment would work for her. To get pregnant again to have "one more" is a lie because the chance of multiples is great and she went into the procedure knowing that she would not selectively reduce the number of fetuses.

So, to me, the whole thing is shady. I guess I have my own "konspiracy" theory about her. She is so wicked that I don't put anything past her. I think the idea of making money off your kids and getting freebies started with the twins and then she decided that she could bring more attention and money to herself by having more multiples.

Wendigo said...

I have been boycotting Wal-Mart much longer than I have been boycotting J&K+8 and TLC. All of you moms out there, you can still save money and not shop at a store that exploits its workers.
Also, I really want to know the story about Kate not touching her bleeding son. Anyone seen it yet?
I have been lurking on this blog for a couple of months now, and I am amazed at how much has changed in that time. Everything you guys pointed out months ago is being revealed! Kudos! Too bad it took something sensational to make it happen, not just good, old-fashioned common sense and human decency.

bowlwoman said...

Ms Peach:

No harm, no foul. I hope I didn't come off as being pissy. I guess I still have a chip on my shoulder from my old GYN misdiagnosing me for 4 years. :)

I luckily didn't have to go on Clomid, but I was about to start it when I found out I was pg with DD#1. However, I know quite a few women with PCOS that were only ever able to ovulate with Clomid, so it's possible that even though Kate knew the risks (especially the second time around), that was the only way for her to conceive. HOWEVER, there are things people can do to reduce the chance of ovarian over-stimulation, so if she didn't do those things or deliberately flouted them knowing she wouldn't selectively reduce, then yeah, that's totally on her.

Like I said, a lot of new research is going on now, but in 2004 who knows what her doctor knew or thought s/he knew. I know in 2004 I was told that I had a hormonal imbalance, but I definitely didn't have PCOS because I didn't have a positive indication on an ovarian ultrasound. I was told by an infertility specialist that I needed to lose 40 pounds and then go on Clomid because I was overweight and that's why I couldn't get pregnant. After finally getting a correct diagnosis and getting proper meds, I got pregnant on my own within 9 months. So, like I said, there are a lot of doctors out there who STILL don't know what they're doing regarding PCOS, even after more research and information is coming out every day.

But anyway, yes, Kate is nuts. Certifiable. :D

momof5 said...

Just read the entire article & while I am not a Kate fan that pic (I believe) was taken within days of having the sextuplets so of course it will look like she changed dramatically. IMO they should have compared a pic from late 05 when they filmed the 1st "documentary" & a recent one.

Also anyone else remember from the 2nd doc when Kate said they bought a house they could afford & because it was close to her brother. More importantly does Kate remember that?

kj said...

Is the reference to Kate not helping her bleeding child referring to the meet and greet with the Harlem Globe Trotter's game when one of the boy's had a bleeding nail? Speaking of bleeding I bet Jon's glad she's not removing any staples now.In one couch interview Kate couldn't anwer questions on Aaden's eye glass perscription.That's something a mom would know.One of the few times she didn't have all the answers.

I'm from Central PA! The weekend Babe was sunbathing at Jon's crib was a gorgeous but very unseasonable 90 degree weekend. By mid April 85% of the trees here have bloomed and the lawns have greened up.

Ms.Peach said...

To Bowlwoman:
Glad it all worked out for you. I had the opposite problem, would get pregnant, then miscarry. At least you got a diagnosis at some point. I got nothing. Still don't like male OB/GYNs. Fortunately, I finally had two great kids.

I wonder if Kate can still get pregnant? Wouldn't that be a disaster? Hopefully she's so self-absorbed that she wouldn't want to mess up her tummy tuck :)

Psychic Belle said...

Thanks so irritated. Looks like a beautiful state! I live north of the border and we're still getting the occasional snow in May. Blooming foliage and bikinis in April are unheard of here lol.

Patty said...

I think it is Kate's maltreatment of Jon that made him behave erratically (plus he thinks like a child) but he should have not been lovey dovey with Deanna. Deanna should be fired from work. She commits adultery. She is not a good example to her students.

Debbie said...

I can't stand phony people. People who pretend everything is peachy. If TLC cares at all about those kids...they should drop the show!!I am done watching TLC. It's a phony channel that sucked all us into this BS.

KateMinus8 said...

How come none of these magazines sought out Jon for a cover story? It must be because Kate went to them? I think the Jon angle might be more interesting at this point because no one knows what he is doing or what is going on with the kids. All these articles are about Kate and no one is challenging what she is saying. Do any of these articles mention if they went to Jon for comment and he declined? I just wonder if this is a set up by her PR people to contact all these different magazines and set up all these stories as a ratings ploy.

Lori said...

Let TLC know how you feel...

I stopped watching Jon & Kate Plus 8 a while ago because I can't stand the way that Kate treats her husband and her children. If we are disgusted by what is left IN regarding Kate's behavior/attitude/comments, I can't imagine what gets edited OUT.

Like a lot of people I feel that the children are in a bad situation, and feeling powerless, I started looking around TLC's website to find out if there is anyway to reach TLC to voice my disapproval of the show (and what I perceive as it's dishonesty). There is a "Viewers Relations" link at the very bottom of TLC's website where you can send them your comments. Just thought I'd share it with anyone who feels like you may want to send your comments their way.

I hope Jon has a lock on that apartment and he's the only one with a key.

debi said...

Sad thing is, that we didn't see the media blitz about their parenting (lack of) skills until all this went down (rumors of cheating etc).

I think it's great that Kevin and Jodi are finally speaking up, but will it help? I doubt it. IMO, they should have come "out" a heck of a lot earlier then they did. The longer they "stayed in the closet" the more time these kids had to go through whatever hell they may or may not have went through.

I still stand by my decision to never watch the show again (and stopped after Season 3...can I refer to it as a season?!) but I tell you, it will be hard NOT to watch the 1st show of Season 5 because of all that is happening.

I have no sympathy for Kate or for Jon. I am sorry to see what this show (and they) did to themselves. I truly believe that at the beginning of the show they loved one another. By the time I stopped watching, I thought they were definitely on their road to Splitsville. It's really sad to see a marriage crumble right under our eyes.

I doubt Kate will ever give up the limelight without a fight. When I have seen her on interviews on other shows, she acts like a completely different person. Sweet talking and quiet. A lot different than the screaming banshee we have seen her as on the show.

I'm tired of these media whores. I hope this falls to the wayside...and SOON!
