When it Rains, it Pours

In light of all of the recent media attention the Gosselin's have received this week, we thought that a general media discussion area was needed. With so many articles, news magazine shows, and TV appearances, it's been hard to keep from talking about all of them in various threads, so please feel free to discuss them all here.

Well, this goes back to the thread about John's oopsie in "US," but someone said it is not that hot in Ohio to sunbathe in April. That particular weekend was very warm in Ohio and PA. It was actually in the mid-80's, so it's likely that the picture of Jon's "friend" is true.

I don't believe it is ok to cheat under any circumstances, but I do have to agree with some that have said this marriage has been over (or is in the process) for some time. The entire situation is so sad...

Marissa said...

On the Today Show Kate said, "I honestly don’t care if either [book] ever sells one copy. I’m flattered and thrilled that they both hit the New York Times best-seller list, but certainly that was not my goal or my focus. I want my kids to have in writing how I feel about them..."

If that was the case, why not make a baby book or scrapbook for each child? Why publish personal pictures and comments for the whole world to see, pedophiles and all? That is the most bogus comment I've ever heard.

This marriage is totally over. It's very obvious. Kate has been humiliated beyond her worst nightmare. She can only tolerate this for a few more weeks until the show starts the new season. It's disgraceful what Jon has done to his family. Loser. She's trying to salvage the money and the book, but we'll see if the Christian book publisher and TLC can continue to tolerate the sleazy, sordid details published in numerous publications

fedup said...

OMG..just read the best comment...I am not taking credit for this....
"Sad to say..you get what you get and you don’t get upset. I hope it all works out the way you want it to honey"

Frequent reader, first comment said...

I believe this is a publicity stunt, she has a book coming out, A brand new season of parent support payments from the kids coming, I really think that this is the nanny that they wanted to keep hidden, and instead of explaining her, they would rather have every media station talking about their show. If jon cheated, I dont think that she would give a single interview about it. Big ratings should be ready for the new season. Also, I finally realized what her hair resembles, I posted it on the comment sec. of US weekly, it looks like a toupee that has slid off her head and landed on the side of her face, and stuck there!

FallenAngel said...

I feel no pity or sympathy for Jon or Kate. THEY chose this path for themselves, unfortunately, they have put their children last!

These babies do not deserve have a mother who would PREFER to be out and about as opposed to being home with them. They do not deserve to watch their mother belittle their father to the point of emotional abuse.

They will never stop the show willingly. Kate will never allow it. Once the money stops, GASP, they will have to get REAL jobs. Pay their own expenses, pay for the kids schooling, clothing and day to day life costs!

I wouldn't wish adultery on anyone however, maybe this is a good dose of karma coming back to bite them in their greedy little behinds!

Ava said...

Kate is such a mess. She said she "wrote" the books for her kids so they will know that she loves them. Well, whatever happened to TELLING them you love them or SHOWING them you love them. Jetsetting around town signing books to strangers with your kids' faces in it is not showing you love them. It shows you love the $$$$$ and that is ALL.
I tell my daughter I love her every day. I show her ways that I love her by the things I do and the way I treat her. I make private scrapbooks for her and our family. I don't publish it and sell it in BAMM and autograph it all over the country while she sits at home with a non-nanny.

Snerk said...

How many lies did Kate manage to spit out today alone?

So far my favorite was that their show is the realest reality show out there? Really? It would be nice to see Kate get through an entire episode that was real and totall unscripted where Kate told the unvarnished, absolute truth for once for the entire episode. Could she do it?

NancyH said...

The whole situation is just sad. I hope Jon isn't cheating but who could blame him if he did. Kate is cold as ice and I'm sure that includes in the bedroom also. Those poor kids...their lives will be affected for the rest of their lives all for the sake of their parents greed. How can Jon justify that new car? Kate wants to keep it going only for the profits. She needs to sit back and look at what she's done to her family. Most reality show marriages fail, ie Jessica Simpson, Carmen Electra, Hulk Hogan...Kate and Jon will be next.

ICExploitation said...

Kate is such a mess. She said she "wrote" the books for her kids so they will know that she loves them.Then how come she says "we gambled and lost"?

I really feel the love from that statement

just wondering said...

I can't wait until a good biographer comes along and writes a book about Kate. And it will happen soon.

Every classmate, every relative, every co-worker interviewed.

Now THAT will make for a great best seller!!

RealMom said...

Someone told me they read somewhere on the internet that they actually split over the summer and the move was a "move out" and into separate quarters so they can continue to film. That is why Jon was not around much and that is why Mady said she didn't have to listen to Kate anymore. Said Kate is almost never home and only returns to film the show. also that Jon has to film the show because they are contractually bound which pisses him off because he wants out. Anyone else hear this? More useless gossip maybe but who knows with these 2 nutjobs.

Merrilee said...

She told Larry King that her kids liked being on TV. Which kids did she ask? The twins? The tups don't know anything different.

What about when Mady put her "no camera" sign on her door?

mindy said...

The problem with Kate is that she is mean and selfish. But to compound the problem she can “get away with it” because she uses the excuse of having twins and sextuplets to shut anyone up who can see her for who she really is.
It's the ideal excuse..."you can't judge me unless you have had twin and tups." So that just discounts what EVERYONE thinks (except for about two other families in the world) And it gives Kate an excuse to carry on being awful. I may not have 8 kids but I can SEE awful.
Mindy

mindy said...

Maybe the reason why so many moms seem to like Kate is because in some twisted way it makes them feel better to know that there is a mother far worse then them out there. Don’t celebrate impatience, withholding of love and attention, and a miriad of other horrendus faults…yes they may be “real” but why not focus on becoming better? Don’t accept her mothering type as how mothers should be. Reach for something higher and better…we all have faults as mothers but dont look to one with so many as our hero and example True, she may care for their physical needs to some extent but any maid or nanny could do that.
And for the record I dont care that she gets all those free things. Complaining about her getting freebies is just silly. It is bussines and way to boon the struggeling economy. It is what she has chosen to become (or let loose) that is wrong.

Shells said...

I agree that this might all be a publicity stunt. Not only so more people will tune in for the new season, but perhaps to create universal sympathy for Kate. It's obvious that her popularity has taken a nosedive, and all of the recent "allegations" takes the attention away from the Kate Gosselin we have all grown to dislike and makes her seem vulnerable and decent again. She may be trying to reinvent herself. (She surely seemed a little more toned down on The Today Show interview.) If she suddenly becomes the cheated-on-wife, other women will feel that they can relate, and as a result, feel a connection to her. We don't usually dislike people that we feel a connection with. I am ashamed to admit that I am intrigued by the drama, so if it is a tactic, it's working on me.

shame on tlc and kon said...

rissa said "If that was the case, why not make a baby book or scrapbook for each child? Why publish personal pictures and comments for the whole world to see, pedophiles and all? That is the most bogus comment I've ever heard."

I couldn't agree more. How ridiculous of Kate to say that!

What a shame said...

Off topic here but I know that I speak for all the posters here.
THANK YOU TO ALL OF THE MODERATORS WHO WORK SO VERY HARD!!! We really do appreciate what you do!

Just so I stay on the subject here....I was watching the re-run of the wedding re-newal and J/K and the tups were dancing to What A Wonderful World and I actually got very sentimental for what is happening to the Gosseline family.
It really didn't have to come to this. My motto has always been to have your head and heart in the right place and things usually go much more smooth. I have to say SHAME on BOTH Jon and Kate!

Kate is SEETHING said...

Just remind yourselves that when the birthday episode airs, it will have been right after this fiasco;
And the camera's will be there cathching it all.

Nothing gets in the way of Kate realizing her dreams and goals (that took her so long to manipulate into riches)You know she belives she is truely the only one who toiled all through this.

Even Jon's blatant cheating.

She is one sick,sick, individual

Boo Deadbeat Fathers said...

I'm not a fan of Kate, but in no way, shape, or form, did she deserve to have this happen to and for it to happen in such a public arena.

Many times her making money is held up to scorn. It's never mentioned that she's writing the books, church talks etc.,because she is married to a lazy man.

She is not being a shrew, instead she is being shrewd. She knows the show will end some day and once that's gone that income, along with the sponsors will end.

I think she has always been realistic in that while she is a trained professional, her husband is lazy and unwilling to find work.

Compare Jon, out buying expesnsive cars, hanging out all hours of the night, and picking up young women, with Kate who is out learning a living.

While I don't think they needed the multi-million dollar home, I am galled with Jon spendng the money on expensive cars, bars, and women.

Again, I'm not a fan of her. I do like the fact she is realistic. She is out earning money in order to raise her children. Again, she knows the tlc and sponsor endorsements will end. She is only doing what most women would do, findng a way to make money to care for her children.

We've never seen Jon ever, ever lift a finger to do that. I wouldn't want to be married to that and I'd probably cop the same attitude as Kate.

Jon is a deadbeat.

Pimping their kids out said...

These people are unbelievable. Are we supposed to feel sorry for them that they're under media scrutiny? Well, don't have a reality show then...to quote Kate, "Helloooooooo". None of what is happening is surprising to me. This entire thing has gone too far, they have gotten so greedy, and now it's just out of control. The kids are being raised by a nanny apparently. What a joke it is for Kate to say that she is writing all of these books for her kids so they know how much she loves them. How about spending time with them and telling them that you love them many times a day? Hugs, kisses, and laughs go a long way. How can she justify being away from them so much? I've felt sorry for these kids for a while now, but now it seems even more sad. What do they care about living in a huge house and being rich? They probably sit there and wonder where their relatives are, why mommy isn't home that much anymore, and who knows what else. Sad, sad, sad.

Vicki said...

When I saw pretentious Kate being interviewed by Larry King, I had to laugh when she referred to being away from home because of her "career." I guess I can't refute it...she does have her name on two books that got published and people actually do pay to hear her speak.

And she's definitely a paid actress on a TV show.

ClevelandRocks said...

Travel or On-site Personal Protection Operations:
Sometimes referred to as "Close Protection" or "Executive Protection", these are staffing solutions that involve the provision of one or more discreet
security professionals accompanying Client staff or talent during transit and/or ground activities with the purpose of ensuring their safety. Unless
specifically required to do so, they are generally discreet to a degree that almost no one would perceive them to be security staff and would more
likely see them as simply other travelers. These staff usually end up being very helpful to the Clients in many non-security related ways, such as
logistics planning and expedited transportation/access facilitation. When appropriate, if desired by Client, and if legally permissible, they can be armed.
I got this from Mr. Gray's security website. This was the only category I could figure Kate would fall under and even this was a stretch. I guess carrying her purse falls under helpful in a non-security related way.

dear jon said...

I don't mean to sound cruel but I honestly hope US or some other mag. has more dirt or LOOKS for more dirt on these two. The sad thing is, WE ALL see it. We have the info because we've been watching this from the beginning. I just wish (for the kids sake) that the dirt just comes out and they have to come clean. If the show continues, it's only going to get worse. Look how much Kate has changed in the last YEAR. What is she going to be like in 5 years? If they were TRULY doing this all for the kiddos then they would have been socking money away left and right and living MODESTLY. The fancy clothes, firt class travel, sportscars, extra cars, mansion, etc....are not for the kids!!!! Oh I am getting so fired up. I can't believe people are so stupid as not to see the major con these two are pulling!!!!! IN the end, who is going to ultimately pay for all these shenanigans these two yahoos have pulled? THE 8 GOSSELIN CHILDREN!!!! Thanks for spending all our money and ruining our childhoods, mom and dad! grrrrrrr jerks!!!!!!!!!!

Wendy said...

Kate was on Larry King Live saying that she is the type of person that sees the glass as half full. Um, is that just because now her bank account is fuller because she has never come across as the type of person that sees the bright side and doesn't complain. She mentioned in the Today Show interview that her show is the realest reality show. Um, in reality she comes across as someone who is never satisfied and has a reason to complain about everything. Who is Kate Gosselin? I guess it depends on how much money she is getting or her future earnings that determines who she is at the time. How sad that money is so important to her. I am not saying that people shouldn't be concerned about how they will pay their bills, however, they should do it in an appropriate way. It takes a particularly cruel and heartless woman that can profit off of her children's life and still sleep at night without feeling guilty. She is able to convince herself that she is not doing anything wrong. Time will tell how people really feel about her when things start falling apart. People are there for her because they can still profit from her but she'll be awfully lonely when America stops supporting Jon and Kate plus 8. It's not what people think of you now that matters, it is how people remember you that makes a lasting impression for years to come. I am certain she will be remembered as the lady who put her children in the spotlight for material gain and an example of how not to parent. A lady who once was considered inspiring will soon be considered a liar and a fraud. The truth will always be the truth and I think the Gosselins have tried to hide too many lies and people are finding out the truth. In the end, they did it too themselves. They put themselves in the public eye for all to see and it's turning out that people might not like them after all.

maria said...

I really don't think this is a publicity stunt, as others have speculated. I was channel scanning today and I caught Kate on Larry King. I also watched her Today Show bit online. In both interviews, she was very calm, but there was something missing. No smiles, no 'usual' Kate. I think she was very sad and humiliated. Who could blame her? I don't care how rotten she treated him. If that is the case, he should have stood up to her or divorced her. Cheating is not an acceptable choice, ever (in my book).

Also, they were showing some older pictures of Kate, and although some of you find her hairstyle odd, I think this hairstyle flatters her face very well, as opposed to the styles she has had in the past.

One last thing. Yes, Kate treated Jon horribly, so this cheating is probably Karma's way of getting back at her. BUT now that Jon has cheated, Karma will be paying HIM a visit soon, too, and I can't wait!

beachluvin said...Mr. Grey


http://www.prudentrisk.com/staff.html



Go down about three photos...It's MR. Gray!!! What is he doing with that resume "protecting" Kate...I guess the whole having an affair is gone. He seems a bit too legimate. How did he end up doing this for the past year or so. I am basing that assumption on the siting in earlier shows. So sad. So ridiculous. Who would "harm" Kate? Not us. Maybe the sheeple. haha. If they really want to hire a bodyguard of this importance it should be for the kids.
No one is going to snag Kate it would be one of the kids...Not giving ideas so I should stop but just saying. IT'S THE KIDS THAT SHOULD BE PROTECTED AND HAVE A BODYGUARD not Kate.

kate is a cocky bitch said...

they're on the cover of the Enquirer. I only bought it because Bea Arthur (may she rest in peace) was also on the cover

We said...

I just watched LKL for the second time just to get a closer look. I was trying to see if Kate was wearing her wedding band. It only showed her from her breast area up. The camera only showed her in a small frame area on the television. I wonder if that is how they normaly do it or was that purposely done.

MelanieMarie said...

Wow, I had to read all the other posts to get a feel for what we are all feeling. I fell in love with those babies years ago. I'm a RN as well and I find a lot of similarities in the way that Kate acts with my OCD tendancies. My husband is a total "Jon" in some ways. He's a big kid. He's My Yin and I'm his Yang. We are all human. There is nothing separating us from them except our discipline to strive toward that middle of the road.

This is a beautiful family with two parents torn apart by entitlement. Whether it's Jon feeling entitled to his "playtime or I need my own identity" and Kate's "I deserve a break, look at what I've endured" Part of you has to look at these two and understand how they ended up at this crossroads in their life.

Imagine you are faced with raising 8 small children and TLC wants to observe your family, for just one season, one neither of you have to work to support the children. What a relief. "Jon can help me at home" and "I no longer have to work all day and come home to I need, I want, or Can You?"

These two are no different than any of us, initially. They just got weak, more entitled, bitter, lonely, frustrated and eventually hopeless. None of us are perfect. yes there are qualities about Jon and Kate that don't sit well with me but, I can't be so quick to judge them. I feel like we can all identify with them, why they did what they did years ago when all this began.

Sometimes, by trying to do the best thing for your family, you get lost along the way. I love those children and I pray for them. Their parents are not evil demons. They are just like you and me. They got caught up in the whirlwind and didn't have the strength to recenter themselves.

I still believe that Jon did not cheat, because he and Kate are already separated. It's not what KON says in their statements, it's what they DON'T say. The PR peeps are working overtime coaching these two morons. It did take almost two days for KON to respond to the news. Kate only seems sad on TV because her little exploitation empire is crumbling because Jon goofed. She probably couldn't care less about him and what he does.

I really wish these interviewers could go just one step further when speaking to Kate. For example, in the Today interview when Kate responded with her "I don't care if my books didn't sell at all, I am writing them so my kids know how much they're loved..." Why couldn't Meredith have asked, "If sales don't matter, why are you selling them?", or something that would put Kate on the spot. I don't think the majority of people really knew who or what "Jon & Kate Plus 8" was until now. Now that they are mainstream news, their empire is going to sink like a stone.

Heidi said...

Did anyone catch Jane Velez-Mitchell last night? I almost choked on my popcorn when I saw who was at the top of the hour! And she had a panel discussing it.

Here is the link to last nights Showbiz tonight.
http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/showbiz/2009/05/08/lkl.gosselin.long.cnn

If this is a publicity stunt, then these two are sicker then we ever knew.
Who would want to put that much pressure on your children to understand that this is all fake? The tups would never understand it.
I think Jon got caught with his pants down. If it was untrue, why did Kate not say they were going to get lawyers together for a libel suit? That is what alot of the legal analysts are saying.

Jimmy said...

Someone told me they read somewhere on the internet that they actually split over the summer and the move was a "move out" and into separate quarters so they can continue to film. ------------------------------------------
Say this is the truth--then would that be shortly after they renewed their wedding vows? What a mess--to see them going from that to this in a few short months -- I can't imagine fabricating such a fairytale--except that every move they make is for the money. Criminal minds in my book.

The poor kids--I just can't imagine doing that to my precious children. Will they ever be able to take marriage vows seriously? --And that is only a tiny part of what KON has put them through.

Watch out KON--someday your children will ask you the hard questions and what will you do?--Lie and whitewash the whole fiasco?
Do you even know what's real anymore? Maybe you should ask yourselves the "hard" questions and put yourselves in your children's place. Being a kid should not hurt. Childhood memories should be something to be cherished--not something to be dealt with later in life.

Wake up Jon and Kate--your lies are finding you.

Been there said...

I have been on the receiving end of adultery. I wouldn't wish that on anybody. I think Jon is smarmy and he will eventually get what he deserves. Men in this situation think they are untouchable, but what goes around always comes around sooner or later.

fedup said...

Wait.. who cares he cheated? Didn't cheat...does anyone see what her PR is doing?
1. Hand outs for poor courageous Kate.

2. Renewel not only another season after 5, but mommy dearest will be in Walmart, Kmart, P & G.

This will not end her career! lol
Just her marriage and she didn't like that. ( It is hers all hers)

Question: Did Joan Crawford have nannies, maids, landscappers?

Tinamarieinpa said...

You know I used to be kind of jealous of Kate, she had everything. New house , money, beautiful children(well i have 3 of those myself), trim body, wonderful vacations. But you know I would know longer want to be in her shoes. I will take my 1100 sq ft house, living paycheck to paycheck,my 160 lb body and summer trips to the park (instead of the lavish vacations) anyday. It shows me how truly blessed I am and I would not want to be her and anything else that comes with the "territory" now.

Kat-e-tonic said...

Really Kate?? Really...you hate the word celebrity? Really? So, asking for room temperature Fiji water, first class treatment at venues, 600 dollar dresses, a personal security guard, divaesque behavior...really..you are the average American family with a handful of extra kids thrown in..really? I wish someone would put a shock collar on this woman, so that every time she lied, it would give her a jolt. Seems like she has missed a few verses of the Good Book...even the worst Christian knows that lying is a sin.

Punkin2448 said...

Here's something I noticed that nobody else has ever talked about in these blogs and I hope I didn't get knocked on the head in my sleep or something, go crazy for a minute and make this up. Please correct me if I'm wrong!

In their renewing vows episode, Kate mentions that the reason they're doing it is because (to paraphrase) they want to make sure the kids know they'll always be there for them and nothing will change.

Now, when I heard this, it really stuck with me and my opinion is they were splitting or had split up at that time and the re-wedding was reassurance for the kids who were feeling insecure at that time.

Anyone remember this or have I lost what little mind I have left? Maybe someone can verify this for me.

pinkdiamond611 said...

Kate stated emphatically "We are not celebrities"! on LK. That is why she had the new conservative hair and makeup. Think back a few months to the glam-Kate on LK. Finally, people have gotten the Kon's number! Note to Kate: Do ordinary housewives eat at Mr. Chow's, shop at Tiffany's, and have a hunky body guard? Nope, too little too late. And, it was sickening how loving parents J&K played in the background on LK? Why not scenes from gumgate, or coupongate, or when little Joel was on the garage floor sick with fever?

nofanofthem said...

remember "hell hath no fury like a woman scorned".

Bring up a chair ladies and gentlemen, this show is just beginning!

Sandy said...

Does it stike anyone odd that Kate is doing all of these interviews instead of Jon? I understand that she may view the primary reason for these interviews to sell her new book, but if they are going to talk about the alleged infidelity - Jon should answer those questions. Why is Kate making public statements about something Jon has done??

organizedblogroll said...

PS: Does anyone has any knowledge if she's (Deanna Hummel) is still showing up to class??

What's going on at the school? I would think the parents are having a F I T!! The paps are probably outside now.

Ms.Peach said...

It appears that the sheeple have accepted the fact that Jon cheated. This has elevated Kate even more in their eyes as a "strong" woman. Just like I thought would happen.

Her appearances are only about her---making her "noble" as Larry King said. It absolutely doesn't matter to her one bit about her marriage. She is totally using this situation. She will never go back to the way it was before and Jon knows this. Although he should not have cheated, I can understand his frustration and realization what a mistake it was to marry Kate. It really is true that money can't buy happiness.

And I am so glad I did not watch Larry King last night. I would just for once love to see somebody tackle the ethics of reality shows and do a psychological profile of Kate. She's just not normal and I worry so much for those kids.

Tom in the next town over said...

I can't see this being a PR stunt, because frankly, neither one of them is smart enough to pull something like this off convincingly. To really be a good stunt, we'd have to get the full "story arc" - from the marriage hitting the rocks to the miraculous "healing" of their marriage and family through their "faith." No way could Jon or Kate pull that off.

The sound of the Gosselin media empire imploding could be heard all the way in the next town over. Perhaps I'll drive by the Konpound to survey the damage...

Ms.Peach said...

I think it is ironic that Elizabeth Edwards' Oprah interview happened the same time as Kate's interviews. Elizabeth is an intelligent, well-spoken, classy person who was cheated on and then compare her to Kate. Need I say more?

Bells said...

I know keight are a lot of things but I really don't see this as being a pure publicity stunt. I mean having jon cheating, and out with his little sports car leaving bars at 2 am? Really they could boost up ratings (i.e. the adoption rumor) in a better way then this fiasco. Plus what's happened humiliates the entire family, hardly an effective way to boost up juice for your show.

I'm in the camp they separated last summer and the move to the big house was the actual living in separate quarters. Depending on when they filmed the couch sessions (seemed sometimes they were filmed quite after the fact) the move to the big house, and couch sessions then all had the tension, hostility and detachment we see now, i.e. a separated couple. There is NO love between them and I agree keight are dancing around the facts that they've been split up for a while now so "technically" jon did not cheat. But you know, they still have the same address and are technically still "married" so yeah, it is cheating.

Wendy said...

Can you imagine what Mother's Day/Tups Birthday will be like this weekend? Along with the cake they will be able to cut the tension in the air with a knife.

Wendy said...
"Time will tell how people really feel about her when things start falling apart. People are there for her because they can still profit from her but she'll be awfully lonely when America stops supporting Jon and Kate plus 8."


Wendy, who do you mean when you say that people are there for her now? I see no one who is there for her except perhaps paid employees such as not a nannie and Mr. Grey. I think she has been able to cut everyone out of her life including her husband. Imagine going through this and not even having a friend to talk to. I cannot imagine how she can close her eyes at night. She obviously does as she sure looked well-rested on TV yesterday, at least to me.

She is one tough cookie and I think now that she has found her new role as an actress so fulfilling she is loving playing the martyr in a failed marriage.

Ms.Peach said...

Remember when they first moved into the mansion and some posters spotted a mattress on the basement floor? I bet it was Jon's until he could furnish the garage apt. Yep, I think they separated before the move. It all seemed kind of wierd how they moved so fast (didn't even wait for the E-town house to sell). They didn't have room in the old house for Jon's sleeping quarters and certainly didn't want the neighbors spying on them.

They live a lie. That's the reality. Too bad they don't come clean. I guess we'll have to wait until the Lifetime movie.

AnotherLisa said...

Give the "noble" woman an Academy Award for Best Actress!!!

ratherbkayaking said...

Watched Issues with Jane Velez-Mitchell last night (HLN), and she had a ten minute spot about the Jon-affair and an interview with the US weekly journalist. Her panel includes Gloria Allred's daughter,Lisa Bloom, who shares JVM's opinion of disliking the fact these kids are commodities and the only source of income. When a sheeple called in to tell Kate to "stand by her man", one of the panel members countered this advice with "more like - hit him in the head with a frying pan". It was a good spot with nearly every sentence paralleling the very thoughts I had in my head,including if this show continues, these people should have the camera following them to much needed family counseling.

DeeB said...

Is it o.k. to date when you are separated? I mean aren't you still married? I'm a little out of touch with this stuff but I was just wondering.

Jen K said...

My favorite lie (and there were so many to choose from) was when she said on LKL that, "we didn't set out to have the celebrity lifestyle. I'm not a celebrity".

Let's make a list shall we?

Top TEN Not-a-Celebrity-Lifestyle Items:

1. $1.3 Million Dollar Gated Estate
2. Luxury Vacations
3. Demanding First Class Air Travel
4. Christian Dior Sunglasses
5. Mr. Chow (need I say more)
6. Plastic Surgery
7. Cosmetic Dentistry
8. Personal Bodyguard
9. Cars...we know there are several
10. Not-a-nannies, not-a-maids, not-a-personal assistants

wait...there's more....should be Top 13

11. Bling up the wazoo on both hands of both of them
12. Mani/Pedi - Spa Days (numerous)
13. Personal Trainers

But no, they never wanted the celebrity lifestyle. She's not a celebrity.

Puleezeee....that's ALL they have been successful at doing this entire time! They sure haven't been a raging success in the marriage/family/parenting department.

HA, HA. What kind of episode can they film for the tups' birthday and Mother's Day? Only the $heeple will buy it (literally).

WAIT, I take that back. They don't actually film on the holiday, so maybe it's already in the can! Those lucky tups---2 b'days in one year.

Ava's Mommy said...

I just wished that Kate would stop this standing up for her husband. Also if she would stop TALKING FOR HIM.. This story would be much better if Jon stood up and be a man. I'm not buying this whole fake written story line. I'm sorry bla bla my actions were bad I did not cheat on Kate. You can tell in the look of Kate's eyes that Jon did hurt her really bad. Unless she has been practicing her drama skills. First off this interview before the story majorly leaked. They were supposed to be together on Today. Nope change of plans, then kate does rachel ray, larry king and who knows what. Um it seem like she is avoiding this whole circumstances? To me it is. This time Kate should of went back home and stayed home. Had Jon step up to the plate and did the interviews himself. But nooo not Jon his privacy is gone for good. He cant be the same fratboy without paybacks. He issues statements because he cant be scrutinized. Jon and Kate your a joke around the world. You both have open up a flood gate. More people I bet know will come out and tell their side of this story. We haven't heard the rest of this.My sympathy is with the children at this moment. Even though they are very sheltered from this whole dilemma.They still need guidance and support.

teena said...

Just a thought...

50% of marriages break up for one reason or another...why should we have expected this one to fare any differently than any other marriage? Just because they have 8 children doesn't make them any better at managing their own relationship.

I feel terrible for the children...

RealPAMommy said...

This situation just does more to prove that standing in a church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.

I used to love this show and family and now I almost feel like I am grieving for them. I cannot even stand to watch this train wreck because I know that a beautiful family has been destroyed- cheating or not- this family was damaged a long time ago. They are all to blame- Jon, Kate, TLC, and all of the products and lavish vacation spots that promoted themselves on this show. Shame on all of them.

If you go to readingeagledotcom the good people of Berks County are beginning to respond to Zeke's Blog about Berk's County's Most Famous Couple.

Andrea said...

I agree with Mary in Ohio....I live in NE Ohio and Friday, April 24 and throughout the weekend, the temps were in the mid 80's. Anyone know where Kate was that weekend? That must have been when Jon and the bikini clad Deanna were hanging out in the yard.

Also, someone else stated Kate is now wearing $600 dresses. Where was this posted?

Does Kate think she's Michelle Obama now, wearing sleeveless dresses on her TV appearances?

There's Something About Katie said...

If you go to YOUTUBE, guess who's on the "Most Viewed" section! Can you imagine! Of all the millions of videos to watch, this spectacle made the #1 list. All the fame Kate ever wanted came suddenly, but the notority is caused by the demise of her marriage, not because of her "skills" as a mother, speaker, author.

Looking back, her sudden change in appearance must be connected to what is now being revealed about their marriage problems. Around the time her weight started to plummet is probably when something major happened in her union with Jon. Women don't change their looks overnight without reason. Now she's tanning, exercising and travelling non stop. It's like she doesn't want one minute to relax and absorb the mess that has become her life. Keep busy to stay distracted.

As for Jon, he's always needed her permission to breathe. I don't think for one second that he would be the first to cheat; he's not bold enough. She probably told him, "I don't care if you want your privacy back. This is my life. Go find your own" and he did.

Sugar Booger said...

Kate does often say she "gambled and lost" while Mr. Hayes says he "hit the jackpot." Which statement would make you feel better about yourself if you were a child?

K8 Knows All said...

In all of her interviews Kate keeps stressing, "We are committed to our children, the children are the priority."

While that is certainly very important, at NO time does she state, "We are committed to EACH OTHER, we love EACH OTHER, we are working on our marriage together."

It's so obviously that this is no longer a reality show, but a scripted drama/comedy/horror show. They need to fess up because they are making fools of themselves.

Jon keeps saying, "I didn't cheat on Kate." That's like saying, "I didn't inhale." Or when Clinton said, "I didn't have sex with that girl." It's all in the interpretation. Jon believes he did not cheat on Kate because the marriage has been over for some time how.

She doesn't care that he is with the skank, just that he is not discrete enough to keep up the charade.

Carolyn said...

Just curious... What happens to the house when TLC ends the series?

Did the G'd purchase it or did TLC?

I missed the entire house moving thing because I stopped watching the show over a year ago.

This whole thing with the media is turning into a train wreck and now I can't look away.

I'm addicted to this place too... just what I need, another site to scour. hehe

Hambone said...

How narcissistic can one get? In the midst of allegations of cheating and putting your children in an awkward situation, you can still make an effort to plug yourself and your book making the NY TImes Best Seller list.

Who does that?

Sounds about right said...

FYI

Kate was voted 2nd worst Reality TV Mom just after Dina Lohan!

http://television.aol.com/insidetv/2009/05/01/bad-reality-tv-moms/

NDmom said...

I have to say it again. More was said by Kate in the Today Show interview by what Kate did NOT say than by what she did say. There was no mention of love between Jon and Kate, not talk of commitment, marriage, trust, belief, etc. If the affair Jon had was not true, I think Kate would have supported him and talked of those things.

BMWoP said...

This is it, folks. They are Konning us all. Think about it. Jon made little effort to hide this affair. Kate doesn't appear that upset.

That have Koncocted another forum for church speaking since the sextuplet birth story has worn thin and people are sick of hearing it.

Jon and Kate are going to get "counseling", "appear" to repair their family, then travel the country going to churches again with a new platform. Cha-Ching!!!!! Back to making 25 grand per speaking engagment and more love offerings...more books.

And they will come out smelling like a rose and people who should be emulated. Kate will be all over 700 Club again for being a martyr for "trusting God" to bring her family back together.

Why else would Jon have seemed to want to be caught, and why else would Kate not appear to be rattled about all this? It was planned...that's why.

KonNoMore said...

TLC now has the last couch interview where Jon said he doesn't want to do the show anymore up on their site. Stay tuned for Season 5 May 25th. Made me start to think. Could this be a PR stunt? Will the first episode be of Jon and Kate saying that they are separated at this time "but are working on it" in separate chairs? That Jon has moved into the garage apartment so he can still be close to his kids. I have a sinking feeling that my instincts are correct on this one. I'm sure most of these episodes were taped before Katie Irene went on her book tour. But I have also heard that she only comes home to film the show. How sad for those kids.

Things that make you go Hmm said...

Did they ever sell the E-town house? If not, is it possible that Jon is actually living in that house?

mommyo3 said...

A few things:

1. First, I wanted to clear up the weather confusion regarding the bikini pictures. I live about an hour from KON, and on the weekend of April 25, we were having record heat in the 90s. It's very unusual for PA, but my kids were outside in a kiddie pool, we ran the AC, and we all got the sunburns to prove it. It was hot for about 4 or 5 days total around that weekend. I don't know if any dates have been attached to those pictures, but that weekend it was more than hot enough to sunbathe in a bikini. The reason they're not by the pool is that you don't open your pool in PA until Memorial Day weekend (it's since dropped back into the 60s and low 70s).

2. Whether or not Jon and Deanna had sex is irrelevant to me. You simply don't go out as a married man with a woman nine years your junior and get drunk in bars until 2am. You are in the public eye and people talk. Whether or not anything physical took place, he's clearly getting at least emotional needs met elsewhere, which is wrong. I don't care if KON "separated" last summer, he's still married to Kate. And no matter how hard that relationship has become, looking to meet your needs outside the marriage is wrong and damaging. And I would love to know why not one TV "reporter" has asked the very obvious question: "If you claim to have no nanny, then who is with your children at night while you're out of town and Jon's out at bars and clubs?" America's connecting the dots, so I just wish one person would ask the question!

3. Kate is an insult to SAHMs everywhere, and moms in general for that matter. To continue to assert that she deals with life just like any other mom is like Marie Antionette saying to the peasants, "Let them eat cake!" Especially in these tough economic times, REAL moms are finding ways to get food on the table and make sure their growing kids have clothing. We are trying to pay our mortgages on our modest-sized homes and also pay for gas and utilities. Many aren't taking vacations this year. So for her to prance around with her new clothes (I've never seen her wear the same outfit twice--have you?), constantly cut and styled hair, spa days, designer handbags, free trips all over the country, more-than-necessary house and property, and more, I am just incensed and insulted that she thinks she has one iota of commonality with me! That would be another great question for reporters to ask: "How can you continue this lavish lifestyle when families all around you are struggling to make ends meet?" I guess our kids aren't special and deserving enough.

I know some on this blog lump KON with all of the large families on TLC, but I just want to say that on this issue, I find the Duggars refreshing. They knew they wanted all of those children, they planned for them, and they support them without asking for handouts. They teach and demonstrate good money-saving principles on their show, which I appreciate. Maybe TLC should have an episode where Jim Bob visits KON to teach them money principles that might help keep them afloat after this ship sinks.

KonNoMore said...

It is becoming clearer and clearer as Season 5 approaches that Kate will be doing all the filming w/o Jon. The uncomfortable couch is gone, new set. Unreal how this couple are still konning the he** out of us. Yeah it really does make you go hmmmmm.

kelly s said...

Remember Kate (as you have said) "God builds in punishments" so maybe these stories are your punishment for treating your family and your fans like crap. Maybe if you weren't such a B**ch, people wouldnt take pleasure in bringing you down. Just remember fans will make you or break you. You act like you are "Queen Bee" and now people are throwing you in mud like you deserve.

JenMatt said...

Does certain hairdo's make you a good mother or wife? Do name brand clothes or walmart clothes make you a better mother or wife? Does tanning, teeth whiteing, spa visits, working out make you a better mother or wife? Why do you people pick on Kate's physical features so much? I get my hair done, I get spa pedicures a couple times a year, I try to work out as much as I can, I like the sun in the summer time, does this make me a bad mom or a bad wife? Granted Kate does speak badly to Jon at times but lets all be realistic and tell the truth-we ALL have spoke that way to our spouses at one time. There is always going to be stressfull moments, arguments, disagrements in a marriage. We dont know if Jon cheated on Kate or not, we dont know if Kate acts this way 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Always remember you do not know what goes on behind closed doors. You may live next door to someone or even be related to someone and you still do not know what goes on in private. Im not sure what this site wants? Shut down the show? Rip 2 people apart? Im sure I will be accused of drinking the kool-aid or being a sheeple but really I am just a person who enjoys watching their show and realizes that all households are not perfect and I should be more concerned about my own family than someone elses.

LisaNH said...

"http://www.prudentrisk.com/staff.html



Go down about three photos...It's MR. Gray!!! What is he doing with that resume "protecting" Kate...I guess the whole having an affair is gone. He seems a bit too legimate. How did he end up doing this for the past year or so. I am basing that assumption on the siting in earlier shows. So sad. So ridiculous. Who would "harm" Kate? Not us. Maybe the sheeple. haha. If they really want to hire a bodyguard of this importance it should be for the kids.
No one is going to snag Kate it would be one of the kids...Not giving ideas so I should stop but just saying. IT'S THE KIDS THAT SHOULD BE PROTECTED AND HAVE A BODYGUARD not Kate."
******************************
You're right, it does seem like this position of protecting Hate is a huge demotion LOL. I mean he's protected European Royalty so why in the heck is he working protecting a neuvo riche narcississt from PA? Seems a bit to low brow for someone of his qualifications.

BRH said...

IMO the reason Kate is doing all the shows and talking instead of Jon after recent events is simple; she is comfortable with lying and he is not. That isn't to say he won't lie and hasn't lied, but I don't think he is as comfortable with spewing it and they feared he would perhaps slip up and be truthful under interview conditions.

It would've been great just to see them finally admit what they've always done to make themselves rich. Lots of sheeple would forgive them if they just came out and said "Hey, we were two semi-educated losers who decided to have all these kids and then had to come up with a plan --- and it worked big time. So sue us". People would get over it.

But we hate to be conned and we hate liars and we hate people who use their children as commodities as JVM put it.

michigan mom said...

I was reading some of the comments and one the comments was Jon is lazy does not have a job and Katie is now the bread winner. If you have been watching all the episodes of Jon and Katie, Katie was always having issues with taking care of the children by herself. Katie had issues with Jon working 12 hour day for the state of Pennsylvania. She was real happy that Jon had gotten another job with Bob (Katie's friend Beth Carson's husband). Also in later episodes Jon was not working any more and he and Kate were stay at home parents raising the children. The problem with both of them has been their new lifestyle has weaken their marriage and they need to make a very tough decision the marriage and the family or the money and the Mcmansion.

Michelle said...

After seeing the Today show and Larry King Live its clear what Kates top priorities really are.....fame and money. During both interviews she explains that both books were written for the children. Why publish them? I wish one of these interviewers would call her on her lies. On the Today show Kate claims that their show is one of the "realest" reality shows on t.v. Thats laughable. The fact that she shamelessly promotes her book while discussing this very "personal" problem is pathetic. I would not be surprised if she likes all this attention from the scandal negative or not. If her children truly were her top priority she would be at home with her family working out this problem.....not away promoting that horrible excuse for a book as well as their upcoming 5th season.

If Jon really wasn't cheating, why doesn't Kate verify that this girl really is just a friend of theirs? Why does Jon only go out with her and party late at night when Kate is away?

kelly s said...

Remember Kate "God builds in punishments" and these stories are your punishment for treating your family and fans like crap. Remember fans can make or break you and maybe if you werent such a b**ch, people wouldnt take pleasure in your humilation.

Jon is so stupid also. He got caught in Feb in the bars, then he does it again? He was asking for trouble.

Tangerine Tanya said...

Punkin2448,
Actually it has been mentioned about Kate telling the children that the reason that she and Jon wanted to re-new their vows is to show them that "They will be together forver."

Now Kate is saying that the reason that she wrote the books is because she "Wants it in writing" that she loves her kids.

What? Vow re-newal and books to prove love for their father and for them? Does not sound like a woman who is very secure with her husband and children.

ArmyWife said...

It is apparent they do not love each other and the marriage has been over for a while. Neither one of them stated they loved the other, they never said they would never leave the other, they didn't pull that "we are a team" crap. It was just 'we love the kids and they know it'

Sukie said...

I find it so ironic that Kate goes on 2 nationwide TV shows in one day and states that their reality show is the "realest" reality show out there - YET - she states that this latest drama (aka Jon getting caught out with another woman at 2 am at a bar!) is not going to be part of the show.
Well, it obviously happened, we aren't all blind, stupid and deaf - we all see the videos and photos!
So, if the show is your life and your life is the show - and it's also the "realest reality show" - then this should obviously be part of the show - right?!?!?! Her logic is so horrendously horrendous!
Give us all a break - we aren't as dumb as you Jon and Kate! Jon OBVIOUSLY got caught doing SOMETHING highly inappropriate - you can call it what you want - but if my husband was photographed coming out of a bar at 2am with someone 10 years younger than him, then there is a MAJOR problem with our marriage!

One last thing - if your show is the "realest" reality show - and it's just a family show showing a family living their lives and going about their daily business - then why the heck are you doing episodes about "Going Green" or having that organic chef come in or having Emeril Lagasse come in to cook for you?! Sounds really "real" to me!

Keep spinning that web Kate because eventually you'll get what you get - and you can't throw a fit!

Miss Brown Betti said...

At the end of season 4 when Kate snatched the marker from Jon and wrote on the wall. Well she was obviously peeved at him. Can you imagine the tortue she is putting him though now?

Val#2 said...

Jen K,
Love your list!

Kat-e-Tonic I love your name.

Just Be Nice Kate said...

I loved how Kate was sounding so dramatically and indignantly triumphant at the end of the L.K interview.

"And I choose happiness. And I choose to.survive.anything."

I could just hear a collective "Amen, sister! You're our hero!" from pro-Kate supporters when she said that.

HW said...

Jon may be lazy when it comes to finding or keeping a job but he seems to do most of the work with those kids.

Kate openly admits she's not a morning person and that won't change anytime soon; therefore, Jon gets the older girls ready for school. He bathes all six of the younger kids every night.

At the dentist when Kate was being told of each child's tooth issues she rolled her eyes and said "That's Jon." She doesn't even help them brush their teeth.

She can't be bothered to deal with them when they are ill, she can't be bothered to carry them back and forth between the house and the van.

And when Jon is playing with them and having fun, Kate insists they stop so she can clean up the mess or that the kids can be put to bed early.

Maybe it's a good thing he doesn't work outside the home. Who would comfort and care for those kids if he wasn't home?

Just Be Nice Kate said...

And the Valentines interview with J & K that tanked (http://kellydinardo.com/blog/comment1.cfm?ID=48) makes a lot of sense if they have indeed been separated for months. If you go back and read it now in light of all the recent happenings, it puts a whole new spin on things.

BMWoP said...
Why else would Jon have seemed to want to be caught, and why else would Kate not appear to be rattled about all this? It was planned...that's why.
------------------
I'll have to say I agree with this being a publicity stunt. Does anyone recall any "celebrity" whose career was ruined because of a cheating spouse? The one poster was correct that the "I'm a mom of 8, look how hard my life is" story is wearing thin so they need some new copy. If KON continues to peddle her schtick to churches, they LOVE a personal story of a sinner coming to redemption and the wife who stood by him. This will just be "Chapter 2" of the story of their lives. The sheeple will eat it up.

Get a Clue said...

More articles will be out next week. The Gosselins wanted fame and fortune and got it. Now they have to live with the results. It seems the locals who have known Jon and Kate for years have known what was going on and got tired of it. Moving back closer to Wyomissing may have been the exact wrong thing to do for this couple who had worn out their welcome in the area before they moved. I hear dirt is being spilled right and left.

Dateline will have a special on "Why People Cheat" I wonder if they will be a part of it.

Beejcctx said...

One thing I want to say, is as we are chatting here - take time to go to those media sites - and COMMENT!!!

Don't trash J&K - believe me people are doing that all over the place.

Let's get ON MESSAGE:

This is show (and those like it) are Child Exploitation and that all children in entertainment shows - whether scripted or not - deserve the SAME protections as child actors in California.

That this should be a FEDERAL child protection/labor law.

AND - keep hammering that "Multiple births do not constitute entertainment" - I firmly believe to this day that these poor kids (and Suleman who is also riding her own train, but she messed up and did it in CA) are the modern day Dionne Quintuplets.

THANKS!

And, yes, I have been practicing what I speak - I've been on US, People, CNN, etc. And others are joining - LET'S BE A VOICE FOR THE KIDS.

Believe, me LOTS of people are trashing (quite hysterically) J&K - but I want to speak for the kids.

donna said said...

Well, all I can say is you reap what you sow and Jon and Kate will have to answer not to us but to their childeren one day. It may have started off innocent but now it have gotten way out of hand and this is what greed will do to you. People will tune in May 25th just to see how Jon and Kate react to each other. How sad for the childeren. I agree wlth the following posters who said that you can make scrap books for memories of your childeren. Another excuse for Kate. Also if they really wanted to save their marriage wouldn't Kate have cancelled all appearances to be home with her family and to handle there situation if they were truly putting family first. Also I beleive the PR have a say in what questions Kate can answer. But as of now she is comming off as the victim which will just prop more piblicity or books as to how she survied the situaition. In the mean time the childeren are the true vitims in all this.

lindahoyt said...

Come on tabloids...you HAVE got to out Kate and Steve Neild. It isn't fair that Jon is the only one to get raked over the coals for cheating. Find out why an executive Vice president of a security agency, is personally going to every book signing with a reality star, and carrying her purse. Some even say they saw him rubbing her feet on a plane!

A man who watched over royality and presidents, and worked his way up in a large company, would NOT suddenly be back to doing body guard duty. He is a desk jockey now.

Come on!

RonandKimplus1 said...

Ok this is my first post but I wanted to pass this tidbit along... I live in Northwest Arkansas and I saw a huge ad announcing that Kate will be in the Bentonville Arkansas Sam's Club to do a book signing on Sat May 9th. What I find interesting about this is that Bentonville is the worldwide headquarters of Wal-Mart and those of us who live here know that when "celebrities" (gag!) visit our area it's ALWAYS to visit the retail gods here and to try and broker some kind of deal. For instance awhile back we saw Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen flying in and out of here like they lived here and then low and behold they did a line for Wal-Mart! I wonder if she's up to something?!!

Just Be Nice Kate said...

Does anyone else think that the Today show should do an interview with Nadya Suleman and ask her if she has any advice for Kate right now? Ha!

But seriously, just imagine if the Gosselin's had years ago opted to just do yearly specials on their kids/family. This year would have marked the 5th year and had there just been annual specials, it would have been really interesting to watch, that is - if the focus was on the kids and how they've developed through the years, their personalities, the family's current childraising related challenges, etc.. It would be far more relevant than weekly watching how the Gosselin's exploit their kids for freebies and the constant bickering between J & K.

Jon could actually be talking to the media and giving them information under the condition that he, too, remain anonymous. With Kate playing the only victim, he could pass along information that others may know about (therefore not leading to speculation that it was he who did so.)

Deanna is lying for him now, but if she ever decides that she has been a victim, she may start talking to not only cash in (she may have a difficult time finding a job as teacher now,)but to retaliate against having been drawn into a situation that was much more convoluted than she could have imagined.

Jennifer said...

But I have also heard that she only comes home to film the show. How sad for those kids.I think it's sad that these kids are missing a mother, but when you consider that their mother is Kate, I think they might actually be benefiting from her absence in the long run.

Aunt Anne said...

I was surprised how sad I felt when all of this hit the fan. No family should have infidelity or adultry to contend with.

I felt sad for ALL of the Gosselins.

Now that I have watched Kate give her memorized crap on so many places, I am once again livid.

Kate gets whatever she deserves.

Jon, I hope you will deal with all of this for the betterment of your family.

Do the right thing, Gosselins.

I honestly, at this point, can't see the right thing for the life of me.

lindahoyt said...

Yeah, Tabloids are always wrong, eh Kate?

Elisabeth Edwards thought so at one time as well.

Now she knows better.

Celebrities get mad because the tabloids uncover the truth that they want hidden. They want to present a certain personna to the public. IF you have got nothing to hide, there isn't a story and tabloids are not a problem.

AZPK said...

On the Today Show Kate said, "I honestly don’t care if either [book] ever sells one copy. I’m flattered and thrilled that they both hit the New York Times best-seller list, but certainly that was not my goal or my focus. I want my kids to have in writing how I feel about them..."

If that's the case why on the final visit to the "old house" were their memory boxes all but empty???? That's what you should be filling with pictures, and other memories of their childhood and it will show them that you love them more than the book.

Ann said...

To answer 2 questions, I saw a picture of Kate in a black dress(it was a recent appearance), and someone had said it was from Bergdorf Goodman and it was $598, so I guess that is the $600 dress.

About seperation and dating, states vary on what seperation is and if it is necessary. I know in some states you have to prove clear fault or be seperated for 1 year with a seperation agreement. Sometimes in rural areas it can take up to 2years before a judge signs the decree. Other states you can get divorced in 30 days if it is non-contested. I got divorced and lived in one of those 1 year seperation states. My ex dated alot during that time. I watched the kids and did not date. My ex-husband's employer offered us free marriage counseling during the seperation, and I was the only one that attended but the 16 months of just me , no dating and the marriage counseling really help me make good decisions for myself and my children. 10 years later I am very happy I took some time alone.

I think with so many kids it would be better to wait for divorce, even if it is a year or more to date, so you can do some soul searching and not make any more mistakes for the sake of yourself and your children. If you seperate and have no kids, then I think it is wise to wait to date but it is only hurting yourself if you make poor decsions, not kids.

Even if Jon & Kate seperate and do not love each other months ago I think they both need to get counseling together or seperately for themselves and for the kids. It is not right to have mom travelling and dad dating and the kids confused. Sadly divorce happens, so divorce, explain it to your kids and help them through it and then date. Maybe I am weird but it having a boyfriend/spouse essential , is it that wrong to be alone for a year after breaking up. It seems people go so fast from one relationship to another?

I too have the feeling that they will show Jon living in the garage apartment (showing he is 100% dedicated to his kids) and having the family tape the first watch us get a divorce but still be a family reality. Sorry Kate I just do not see your family antics playing out like Will Smith's or Bruce Willis and Demi Moore's happy divorces for their kids. No way Kate will go on ski trips with Jon & his new girlfriend.

Thanks lilmamaD for putting all the contact info together. I eamiled Discovery Networks yesterday expressing my dislike of the show and asking them to please take it off the air but it took me quite awhile to find the email address so thanks for making it easy for anyone on here to contact the right folks to voice their concern!

"when it rains, it pours" is right! lol who could have believed all this could have exploded all at once?

I think it's sad that these kids are missing a mother, but when you consider that their mother is Kate, I think they might actually be benefiting from her absence in the long run.

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

Absolutely. The kids are much better off without Queen B around.

Perez hilton has an interesting post about both Jon and Kate cheating. People are saying she got a little too friendly with her personal trainer. Also, the infamous Mr. Gray is mentioned.

Cynthia said...

I have been on both sides of the fence I am ashamed to say. I have crossed the line when I was married and the man I crossed the line with crossed the line back @ me. Just pure ugliness!

I think that Kate was such a mean and ugly person to Jon that I could understand him seeking love and comfort from someone else.....BUT......Based on my own personal experience the best way to handle marital strife is to discuss it over and over so that your husband/wife understands where you are coming from and hopefully try very hard to salvage the marriage. If ALL fails then get divorced and THEN move on!

But we all know that Jon hardly ever stood up to Kate when it came to issues with their children let alone adult issues.

The way I see it is that Kate pushed him away. Rather then Jon seek affection/attention from others he should have been a man and handled the situation in a more sensitve and adult manner.

I think that maybe just maybe Kate may do some reflecting on her ways(miracles do happen) and perhaps soften up and see how terrbile she was to Jon. It may happen soon or years from now. I would guess though that now she is just plain hurt and angry. She claims to be a germaphobic and this will just bounce her off the deep end if you know what I mean. Rightly so I think.

It is a very un-fortunate situation that they brought to their family. If only they would have settled for the simple things in life. They are the warmest and deepest.

As Kate said "Life's lessons"
So true. Some learn them while other's stumble over and over.

Only time will tell.

"Money is the root of all evil."

I don't think that Money is the root of all evil. Like Suze Orman says, "Money never did anything to anybody."

"Greed is the root of all evil." in my book. The greed to acquire more more more. More money, land, big houses, fancy cars, clothes, jewelry, material possesions, resources, and in some worst case scenarios even kill.

Remember the movie "Wall Street"? "Greed is good." - Gordon Gecko.

Kon are most certainly greedy. And they let their greed get the best of them.

JJ said...

Andrea, Michelle Obama was not the first person to wear sleeveless dresses in the spring...

This whole situation is messed up and sad. I still don't think it's a publicity stunt. I think Jon should be making some statements, on television, instead of Kate. But he's a wimp and I bet they're all too afraid that he'll say something stupid (it's obvious he didn't write those statements himself)

I feel most sorry for the twins who can fully appreciate what's happening.

I can't let go of the Valentine's Day episode with the cards that were just signed, "Love, Mommy." Who does that?

I cannot imagine giving my child a V-Day gift and not including her father's name on there.

Something has been up with these two for MONTHS. The growing hostility, the tension during the couch interviews, the fact that they did stuff with the kids separately...

What a sham.

Theresa said...

I do watch the show and while I do think Kate can go overboard with the bitchiness I've also seen Jon dish it out as well. Both of them speak rudely to each other. I also have to wonder just how much of that is staged for the ratings, after all this is a tv show. I wasn't there, I don't know if he cheated or not. But I'm reading these posts and trying to put myself in her shoes for a minute. First of all, I'm sure these interviews she's doing right now were booked months ago by the publishing company of her new book. It just so happens that the "affair" hit the news while she is on her book tour. (Now for all we know that too could be staged to drum up publicity.) But if I give them the benefit of the doubt...and assume that the timing is real, well then I'm not sure I would answer any questions any differently then Kate. Think about it, if this is true, and you're finding out there is a chance your husband is having an affair, and you are in the spotlight, are you going to "defend" him and say what a wonderful man/husband he is and how much you love him. Hell no.... He's embarrassed her even by being out with another women, and now she has to be thinking to herself "is he cheating, does he love her." To defend him and say this never happened...is anyone famous or not 100% sure their spouse isn't or didn't cheat on them. Suppose she did/does defend him and it turns out he was/is lieing to her as well as everyone else...well she looks like just as big an ass as Hillary Clinton. While I may not agree with all of the choices the Gosselins have made, I am still human enough to be able to relate to what a heartbreaking situation this must be for Kate whether you like her or not. No one deserves to be betrayed like that.

Chris said...

A book signing tomm? May 9th? This really proves she does not want to be the kids. She is out for Kate. This book signing was not on the orginal list? Wasn't she suppose to have like 4-5 days home over the tups birthday and mothers day (to film of course). Does she really think (as she stated on tv yesterday) the kids no nothing is wrong because the go to an exclusive private school?

Kate please stop the book tour (or walmart corporate visit) and be with your kids. I just don't undertsand how anyone could really believe she is a stay at home mom most of the time!

lilmamaD said...

Ok, I'm feeling alot of faith in Zondervan! I just received a call back from Jessica Secord there and I feel confident that Zondervan did indeed encourage her to go home and be with her family. From my conversation with Jessica, I feel like that is why she may have up and left some book signings, when this all initially broke out, because they advised her to head home. But it was also expressed that "Kate just loves the book signings and the interaction with all of the fans." And added that Zondervan did not initially schedule all of these book signings, but that Kate requested more added. So, my strong opinion is that Zondervan does have the children's well-being in all of this at heart.

ruthy said...

This is what I think is happening....

Season 5 has already finished filming and as we are all posting Jon and Kate are sitting on the "loveseat" explaining their divorce/marriage/Jon's new friends.

Season Five will be like the last with Jon and Kate doing separate things with the kids.

Season Six will be Kate, the kids and her life as a single, working Mom. She will out promoting her cookbook and talking about her new book "Being a Single Mom of Eight".

Maybe that can be a new topic. After the cookbook what will the next one be titled?

Techymum said...

These comments summed it up for me:

Kate, Larry King Live

Regarding the worst part of the show - they never get to leave their job.

Regarding the kids and the filming - they don't know any different.

Enough - lets get some laws going.

RealMom said...

She wanted them to know how she felt about them in writing? One book is a picture book of their pictures for sale to strangers and one is supposed to be a cookbook. Right Kate, why not just tell them privately or write them a letter and mail it from NYC.

RobandKimplus1 said...

I posted the info about the book signing at Bentonville Ark. Sam's Club. I saw an ad in our newspaper today. After seeing on the blog here that Mother's Day is also her tups birthday I just had to recheck this. I could NOT believe she would be in Arkansas the day before her kids b-day so I logged on the the Sam''s Club website, looked up the Bentonville store info and YES! it is listed as an upcoming event on May 9th!! This woman is so crazy and money/attention hungry I cannot believe her! I feel so sorry for her kids and she obviously does not care that her marry is melting down- WOW!

Charlotte said...

I agree with most of the aforementioned comments. However, as a brief aside, I think it's important to acknowledge the sort of class-war happening on this site. I get my hair done, go to spas, travel, and live in a nice home. My husband and I both work ridiculously long hours to accomplish this.

I can understand the frustration that they have been put in a lucrative position by using their children, and I agree that the smartest move on their part would be to put the money in trusts for the children. Still, I think it's obnoxious for anyone to claim that they've made "enough" money. None of us know what will occur in the future, and I don't think anyone should have to apologize for working hard so they can be in a situation where they are NOT living paycheck to paycheck.

I believe that the bottom is falling out from their enterprise right now. I think that she's doing damage control; I also think that - whatever you think about Kate - she is the ONLY one in that family who is at least trying to provide for the children. What does that man-child accomplish, anyway?

I also wanted to point out the distinction between Kate's interview and that of Elizabeth Edwards. Elizabeth was so full of grace and thoughtful and transparent; her love for her husband nearly vibrated off the screen, for all that he has done to hurt her.

Why doesn't TLC show us a marriage that looks like that?

KaitiebugandBrayBray'smommy said...

Kate is going to be on the View on the 19th and i think whoppie will get her. she has always been very Whoppie like when it comes to them so it should be intreating

XYZed said...

In a strange way, I think that Jon was trying to take the high road when he publicly declared his distaste for continuing with the show.

I believe that Jon and Kate have privately agreed to live separate lives, hence Jon's comment that he did not "cheat" on Kate. Kate's lukewarm reaction to his indiscretion suggests she is not emotionally destroyed, but angry because Jon didn't try harder to keep his newly single life secret.

I think Jon came to his senses and realized that the show had become a big lie. He doesn't want to continue the Happy Family sham portrayed on the show, but Kate won't give it up and needs him around to continue the myth that all is well.

PunkMamaOf3 said...

Jon, how can you be so low? How can you do this to your wife and kids? I know Kate is a bitch, but stick it out! Thats what families do! They get through the hard times, TOGETHER! They love each other, no matter what.
Period.

lindahoyt said...

Boy, "boo deadbeat fathers"...do I have to disagree with you! Kate most certainly deserves to have her husband cheat on her! No one in all the world deserves it more! She threw her marriage out with both hands!

She VERY PUBLICALLY ridiculed, mocked and humiliated her husband. She publically humiliated her sister in law, and her parents. She signed her children up so that their very embarrassing moments could be publically broadcast around the world for all to see. Their POOP was broadcast in a very public arena, for heaven's sake!

Now, the kids get revenge, for their parent's "Poop" is now being broadcast for the public to comment on and dissect!

Public humiliation for Kate is absolute justice. And I am not surprized, as God says in the Bible, that the same measure you use for others, will be given back to you.

carolyn said...

Kate made TWOP's list of horrible mother too!! Here is an excerpt:

But besides whoring them out on national television and allowing all their pooped pants (they do that a lot, by the way. Is that normal? That might be her fault too, we're not sure) and crying at dead animals during Planet Earth viewings to be broadcast to the world so that all their future middle school classmates can torture them properly, Kate yells, nags and insults her husband in front of the kids constantly. And we mean constantly. After becoming traumatized shells of humans after videos of their bedwetting are passed around their entire adolescence, those Gosselin kids are going to have some serious relationship issues with that woman as their role model.

Jane in California said...

Interesting thoughts Lilmama. I sent an e-mail to Zondervan, and all I got in return was a very generic, nothing response.

I think Zondervan, like all companies, has the bottom line as their top priority right now. What will sell, who will generate income for this division? The answer seems to include, unfortunately, Kate Gosselin. A certain segment of the population that purchases religious books thinks that Kate Gosselin is someone to be admired, emulated, and fawned over. I really can't explain it. But there it is, and Zondervan is facilitating this by promoting Kate and her boooks.

The fact that Kate is out doing a book signing the day before Mother's Day -- after the shocking revelations about how shaky her marriage is -- says all any of us need know. Kate's priorities are all messed up.

The most important thing in this world is being with family, loving your family. Not money, not fleeting fame, not fancy clothes or expensive handbags, or diamond jewelry, or tanning booths, teeth whitening, chauffered rides or your very own handsome private security man.

I'm sure I sound cynical, but I have little faith that Zondervan, TLC, Discovery Channel, Kate or Jon are putting the best interests and well-being of those children first.

KaitiebugandBrayBray'smommy said...

Kate and the tups are sharing mothers day and their birthday should be intresting if shes even home.

Beyond Blessed in GA said...

ok, lets see here:

Sudden move to mansion...

Instruction to keep out of "Kate's" room...

Shows filmed with only one spouse...

Disassembling of the previous interview set...

Valentines signed just "mommy"...

Jon being to blatently irresponsible...

Kate responding calmly, stating She.can.SURVIVE.anything.....


I get the feeling they've been planning "Season 5" for some time now, think about it, TLC/Kon could have filmed/edited anything they want up until this point. For all we know, credits roll as "Kate + Eight".


What I want to know is why is ALL of the media tiptoeing around all of this:
"Pennsylvania has virtually no laws in place to protect the interests of the Gosselin children. Their parents live in a million dollar mansion, dad reportedly has 3 sport cars…who is protecting these children? Their parents? Mom’s gone most of the time on book tours and speaking. Dad is apparently out until very late at night on a regular basis. Someone needs to closely examine this situation."

(Last paragraph taken from another comment on RE, Mine would have been much too wordy)

R in Texas said...

Kate has certainly been coached. The black dress on the Today show? All from the PR firms instructions.

There is not much left to say that my "awesome" peers have not already posted. Like others have posted, both Jon and Kate have made their beds and can reap the consequences. Both are either too selfish or too dumb to realize what they have done to eight innocent children.

Oh, and Kate? I have spent nine years in education. I have worked in "poor" schools and "rich" schools. An excusive private school does not protect your daughters from ridicule brought on by idiotic parents.

B.MO said...

Ok, wait,...per the Perezhilton.com website, there is now a sex tape of Dummel?! There being a sex tape out of her, with Jon or no Jon (apparently it's not him) it makes me believe her brother more and more. How can you give a person like that ANY credibility?!? On top of it all a 3rd grade teacher?!?! I'm barely 20 but you better BELIEVE that if this wench was my kids teacher....I'd be up at that school first thing in the morning trying to get my kid out of that persons supervision QUICK!

(Sorry if someone else already posted this I wasnt too sure)

Inspirational? Um, no... said...

I don't understand how people are inspired by the Gosselin family. It would be one thing if they were incredibly wealthy now (or even just able to cover their basic needs) because they figured out how to balance work and family life. In reality, their money and faux fabulosity come from coporate sponosors. Should we all aspire to have more kids than we can support (or, more disturbingly in this case, love) and hope that some major company will sponsor our family in lieu of actually working? That is completely unreal reality.

NancyM said...

I for one feel terribly sorry for the kids and even for Jon and Kate. They may not be very nice people but they are people all the same and I wouldn't wish this sort of situation on anyone. I acknowledge that they are responsible for their own actions and the results but I would rather see them work it out for the sake of their children. Unlike many posters, I take no pleasure in the pain of these people.
Also - I agree with the poster who commented about the "class warfare" we are engaging in on the site. I too get my hair done, occasionally go to the spa, work out and live in a nice home. My husband and I worked very hard for what we have and we have three beautiful children who are not suffering just because we are able to travel.

DeeB said...

O.K. If Jon and Kate really did separate several months ago and given the fact that just yesterday Kate said (again), "we are the realest (I guess she thinks that is a "real" word) reality show on TV"; then those two should be sued for fraud because the 4th season was NOT for real. (I apologize for the long sentence.)

Anyway, here's the thing. I made a vow to myself not ever to watch them again because I refuse to contribute to their ratings. So how in the name of all that is sleezy am I going to keep from watching the opening show of the
5th season!!! I guess I'm going to have to tie myself up in my own closet!

OMG! Rachael Ray is on and Kate is coming on. They just showed a preview of her saying, "one day at a time, one hour, one minute, blah, blah, blah. Gag me. More lies.

zoey said...

I agree that jon and kate probably have some sort of understanding when it comes to cheating.
He never says "i did not cheat on my WIFE" instead, he says he didnt cheat on KATE and never do either of them use sentances with the word LOVE

OMG!!!! said...

Uhhh Ohhh Rumor has it that if you think this week was big on the Gosselin news meter -- Next week its gonna get C R A Z Y!

:munching popcorn:

Mod's its gonna get worse before it gets better, lol!

TC said...

Little piece of advice...when you post a link please make sure you say if its NSFW (not safe for work) I just clicked on one site that was mentioned here and got an eyeful.

lindahoyt said...

I think Jon should just kick Kate in the teeth, and come clean about the whole situation. Do things the right way for a change. Do things the way he knows in his heart, that should be done. He wouldnt' be in this mess if he had done that from the beginning.

Kate has him convinced that they "need" the money. That she knows what is best. But, no money is worth this misery. Have they been happier, since they got richer?

He should just tell the truth about him and Kate; ask forgiveness, and be brutally honest. Don't ask Kate for permission, just do it.

He should give Greta Van Sustren a call and tell her everything. Greta is a great gal. Very nice, and extremely fair.

That is what would be best for the kids...not what Kate wants to do. The kids are going to have to deal with tabloid stories about themselves soon, because their parents have made them into celebrities. And that is what happens to celebrities. Even kids.

The Gosselin twins, who are just a couple of years away from being teenagers, and making teenage mistakes; will see those mistakes plastered all over the tabloids and across every tv screen.

If Jon just comes clean and tells all...the show will be over. Might as well be in control of the timing; and earn your kids respect back, at the same time.

Kate has Jon and a few other people fooled into thinking that SHE is carrying the big load in their family. That SHE is the one earning money and contributing the most to the family.

It isn't true!

The Gosselin's wealth was seeded by Jon's father and Jon's inheritance. (which is why he was the only grandparent Kate 'liked') Jon's dad bought their home, and financially supported them.

Everyone knows that Kate didn't write any book. The story was Kate and Jon's story, which Beth Carson wrote. Jon had as much into the story as Kate! And besides, Jon was at home taking care of the "eight little faces"...while Kate went off to spa's and told Beth the story. The kids are both of theirs. So, the pictures of the kids in the "eight little faces", book is also equally Jon's.

Kate is decieving herself, and making a fool of herself when she says that she has a "career"! No one thinks that, but her. No one in the world believes it when seh says that her "focus is on the kids"....not while she is all over the tv, and at book signings all over the country, WITHOUT the kids! LOL...

Truth is, Kate would be nowhere without Jon and her kids...that is the truth. SHE ruined her family---NOT Jon! Kate ruined her family! She used them for financial gain and her own selfish fame. NONE of the rest of the family wants the show, or the fame. Just Kate. And she is willing to lie and lie and lie about her marriage to keep that fame.

Her husband did all the hands on, with the kids. That is documented on the tv show. Kate was an incubator, and a part time cook and part time maid, and occaisional babysitter...emphasis on the sitting part!

Kate is just fooling herself. And it is tragic.

Do they really go to church? Do they really have a Pastor?

Niki said...

I don't care one bit that the Gosselin's get free stuff. If someone was giving me free stuff I would take it too.

I have an issue with how much this family has changed since we first "met" them a few years ago. Yes, Kate was a little abrasive and abrupt but she was also sometimes gentle and even loving towards Jon and the kids. She seemed genuinely grateful for everything.

Then the free stuff kept on coming and she became this entitled diva who didn't need her friends and family anymore. She's rude to everyone and is spending more time away from her kids than ever.

I used to think she was "amazing" for keeping it together and being so organized with that many kids but she's not the same person anymore.

Jon is tired of putting up a front. She's off living her life and he's dealing with the kids. He decides to live his life too. He's a punk for cheating but they both are responsible for their downfall.

Nikki said...

Hey, everyone. I just had an intersting theory. Maybe, just maybe, jon and kate aren't separated. Perhaps, they are already divorced, and just carrying on this "we're still married" act for the cameras. That's why jon said, "I didnt cheaat on Kate." If they are divorced and not separated then technically he didnt. I'm just grasping at straws. I could be wrong just an interesting theory. Any way it goes this whole situation is an ugly mess. I always felt like something wasnt right about those two, then I came across this blog and found out I wasnt the only one who thought so.

lindahoyt said...

Kate said about her parents, "they don't know how to help us".

All I can say is, it must run in the family. Because Kate certainly has no idea how to help her kids either. It doesn't help them to have her all over the country, while their parents marriage is falling apart.

Tammy said...

I also believe that this is a publicity stunt to get more people interested in watching their show. One post on here said that Kate was at a book signing and when asked if she would sign a piece of paper, one of her "staff members" said she would only sign her book or a US Weekly. The articles in US Weekly are not at all flattering to them so why would she agree to sign it?? I saw her on the Today show and she looked half asleep. I looked at her new book at the store-absolutely ridiculous! What more can she possibly dream up to do? Talk show? Radio show? Who would tune in? Certainly not me.

Nope, not buying THIS either. Sounds like Zondervan is covering their A$$E$ by putting all the blame on K8. Zondervan is JUST as guilty of exploiting the kids.

Emily Tolliver said...

I NEVER buy US Magazine or any other of those gossip magazines, but I did this week! Since I was stuck in the airport I bought US. Wow.....I mean I still question "dede" brothers motives for telling all this....but it sounds legit! If its true....(and it sounds true from how Kate is acting/being) they have SERIOUS problems. Infact thats a problem that could never be fixed. From hearing Jon pretty much say he didnt want to do the show anymore, to making not-so-obvious about his "friend" he may not care what happens.

What intrests me is kates's side of things. I want them to show her that article and ask her about it.

Any by the way......WHO IS WATCHING THE KIDS!!!!?????? The non-nanny? Geesh.....joke.

lilmamaD said...

Jane,
I know, I had sent 2 emails prior to phoning and leave voice messages to every phone number listed for their Public Relations team. That was why I tried to dig up phone numbers for these companies instead of emailing. All of my email reply backs from every company has been a typical "canned" statement. I told Jessica that Zondervan never responded to my 2 emails and she did say she would forward the concern to their customer relations dept. I seriously got the feeling that Zondervan is not what is keeping Kate away from home.

Midwest Teacher said...

A couple of comments...

I agree that this marriage has been over for awhile and Jon got too lax and was caught. This past season was so strange and it was very obvious that there was nothing emotional between those two anymore. They are just trying to see how far they can go getting their freebies and book deals before they have to give up the hoax.

I also agree that Kate's statements on "Today" were ridiculous. It's always been about money and Kate found another way to exploit her fame by selling those books. The other statement about how "real" their reality show is was just absurd. Getting freebies and showing them off is not real. Dragging your children to different outtings and staging them is not real. It was realistic in the beginning, but has gotten so out of control and staged.

Lastly,those that have posted about how frustrating it is that the media doesn't call them out on their BS is right on. I agree that Meredith could have furthered severeal questions and I'm not sure I understand why they don't push Kate more. What are they scared of? I just want her to be put on the spot and see how she explains herself!

This whole thing is such a SHAM!

I have to respectfully respond to this. The comments about K8 getting her hair done, going to the spa, shopping a lot, etc has nothing to do with social class, but everything to do with the type of class that money can't buy.

If K8 and Jane were not pimping out their children, how could K8 afford the spa ? How could Jane afford his little sports car ? They couldn't, because THEY DO NOT HAVE JOBS. And, going around the country spewing lies and BS does not a job make. If K8 and Jane had REAL jobs and earned their own $, then nobody would have a problem with them buying a new home, shopping, eating at Mr. Chow's.

As for the "obnoxious"
comments about having enough money, the comments are meant to be in the context of THEY HAVE MADE ENOUGH MONEY OFF THEIR KIDS. Again if K8 and Jane want to get REAL jobs , let them work till they are blue in the face, nobody would care.

"Tom In the Next Town Over" had a brilliant and hilarious comment. I agree that this is not a PR stunt created by Jon and Kate or their PR firm. I used to be a senior level PR person at a big firm. This would be too risky for any PR person to recommend to a client-the outcome is just too risky and could collapse the show and these two fakes. Kate would never allow herself to be caught in this sordid scandal. It's something that Jon did by cheating and it's spun way out of control. TLC is a family network and the books are published by Christian publishers. It's only a matter of time before the implosion is complete.

I think some of these book signings and appearances are out of Kate's control. A lot of celebrities, and she is one, make cameos and appearances on or around Mother's Day. I don't think that makes her the Worst Mother Ever. The whole timing of the book release, around Mother's Day, was done to maximize sales.

She's a nag, negative, and a control freak, but those tendencies have spun out of control in recent years. As much as I dislike Kate, and basically everything about her, I hate to see Jon given a free pass because his failures are less obvious.

I don't think he was all that supportive a husband, and I certainly don't believe he takes the initiative about things. Yes, Kate is a control freak, but a lot of mother's are -- the vegetarian that closely monitors her child's diet, the germ-phobe that makes her kid wash her hands twenty times a day and carries around bottles of hand sanitizer, the obese, past her prime mom that has her kid in dance, cheerleading, and anything else to help her child attain the ever elusive popularity.

In a lot of ways I don't think Kate's all that crazy -- she documents her childrens' milestones, and I'm sure the show pushes for those types of revelations. She likes to minimize mess and headaches because she does, in fact, have eight kids. I know it may seem like I'm defending her, and in some ways I guess I am, but only to the extent that I don't believe she's the only one to blame.

I believe that some of her bitchiness is in response to Jon's inaction, inattention, and immaturity. Of course, she's gone about it all wrong, but that doesn't mean that all the blame lies with her.

Jon is a grown man. He is capable of making his own decisions. Yes, Kate might nag him to death, but grow a pair. She's not responsible for his cowardice. If Jon was abusing the kids, then I would expect Kate to step in. How, then, does everyone give him a free pass for not stepping up to the plate and doing what everyone and/or he believes is right for his family?

She's a bitch, big deal. What's she going to do? Yell? Nag? Pout? So what!! That doesn't excuse Jon for being such a rhymes with wussy. All that to say, I am so sick of reading how it's all Kate, Kate, Kate. She's horrible, of that there is no doubt, but Jon isn't exactly a prize, and there is plenty of blame to go around.

I don't understand how people are inspired by the Gosselin family.

********

Well, I can tell you how I am "inspired"! Because of Kon and this fiasco, I am going to be nicer to my husband. Sometimes raising two kids in our house is stressful and "doesn't bring out the best in us". But it doesn't have to be like that. I lvoe him and respect him and need to remember to let him know that. Because of the Gosselin's, I am "inspired" to care more about my children than the things I "do" for them (volunteering at their schools, etc., which is a wonderful and "noble" thing, but sometimes leaves me too tired and too "involved" to simply play with them). Because of Kon, I am inspired to just be with my kids and love on them and cherish every last second of their precious childhood, not wish they were still cute babies and refer to them as such. Because of Kate, I will fondly remember my children's "babyhood" but I will not live there. I will embrace the new phases and stages and be thrilled that they can and will grow up and mature.

So if you all need me, I will be a Clone Trooper or a princess this afternoon and will be unavailable to further discuss the charade and antics of two clowns called the Gosselins.

And when "we" tuck "our" kids in bed tonight, I think I will cuddle up to my husband on our "loveseat" and relish in the fact that there are no cameras around except the one I use to capture my own kids on film for my own use.

Mother of Two (wanted more,couldn't afford,never wqould ask for donations to support them) said...

I'm afraid people will criticize me for asking this but her goes: why is Paul Peterson of a Minor Consideration not going after Jon and Kate like he's going after octomom? I know he's represented by Gloria Allred, and most people despise her, but my point is, he was a child actor for many years, his parents stole all the money he earned, so he knows first hand what the Gosselin children are going through. He's only trying to stop octomom from getting away with the same things Jon and Kate have been doing for the last 5 years. The very first time I had the courage to post on this site a few weeks age, I mentioned people should contact Oprah to complain about Jon and Kate, and other people just started criticizing Oprah. My point is, the more media attention that is brought to Jon and Kate and the wolves-in-sheeps clothing they are, the better.

msrylee said...

I think there is a real possibility that they are already divorced, and are just playing their "roles" as per their contract. That would be a reason for Jon to deny that he cheated on Kate. JMO, nothing to prove it.

No matter their marital status, each of the Gosselins need professional counselling. And not by a T.V. doctor who deems Kate to be Mother of the Year.

Also - I agree with the poster who commented about the "class warfare" we are engaging in on the site. I too get my hair done, occasionally go to the spa, work out and live in a nice home. My husband and I worked very hard for what we have and we have three beautiful children who are not suffering just because we are able to travel.
_________________________
Class warfare? I don't recall reading anything on this site intimating that working hard and earning money is wrong. The disdain being expressed is about making money by exploiting your own children -- greedy parents selling out their children's childhood to the highest bidder. No good should come from making money in that fashion.

lindahoyt said...

Nice try, but there is no class war on this site.

I have to say, I for one, am not the least bit jealous of Kon, because I have all the money I need. AS a matter of fact, my kids go to private school, and we have travelled all over the nation, and around the world. I can go to the spa, I do get my hair and my nails done...and I haven't commented, because I get spray on tans! LOL! Yes, I am an orange lady! LOL! (I am very fair, and because of a medical condition, can't be in the sun--so I prefer orange to ghostly white!, why can't they perfect it and make it a brown color?)

Anyway, I can safely say that people of all classes can be disgusted at the way this couple spends money that was DONATED to them, so that they could buy groceries! No one cares if I have a sports car, if they didn't give up a dinner out, to donate money to me, thinking I needed funds!

These two are like the guys on the corner with a cardboard sign, asking for "food for work"....and getting heaps of money instead! We have a guy here who makes a car payment and house payment, begging on the street corner! That is Jon and Kate...they just do it on tv and get bigger donations.

Not class war. It is disgust about lying.

I agree with most of the aforementioned comments. However, as a brief aside, I think it's important to acknowledge the sort of class-war happening on this site. I get my hair done, go to spas, travel, and live in a nice home. My husband and I both work ridiculously long hours to accomplish this.

================================
I have a very nice home, nice cars, I go to the spa (if I have time), love to shop, etc....
but not at the expense of my kids! I didn't have someone video tape my children's poop or of them naked, get a laugh if one of them were having a bad day, sell a book of their pictures (I could go on) just so I had the nice house, car, pedicures and clothes. They did!

I think the idea of class-war comes from the fact that Kate (and Jon) were a struggling family (like most Americans) but now they have fame and money. They are still coming off like a struggling family. They are no longer struggling! Kate makes it seem that the only thing money and fame have allowed her, is to be home with her children. We all know that's not true!

Jen K said...

I have to say, I didn't think making comments about their "Not a Celebrity Lifestyle" would imply that I am and others are against people making and spending money.

To the contrary...if you work hard, put in the time and earn your money I say go to the spa every day if you can! :) I would!

But, as some other posters have already explained (but I feel the need to reiterate since my post was one of the ones characterized as a class-war post) when two parents who can't seem to hold a job between the two of them decide that pimping their kids out to national television and depriving them of a normal, health, PRIVATE childhood are making and spending that money like water...well, yeah...I have a problem with that.

It's also the blatant lie..."we never set out to have the celebrity lilfestyle". Like hell they didn't! Did someone force them on the operating table for their various cosmetic procedures? Did they forcibly make them sign the purchase agreement for the gated estate? Did someone drive them, blindfolded and against their will to Mr. Chow?

Puleeze....Kate especially is addicted to the attention and the money. She's a fame whore. Obviously a little girl who either didn't get enough attention or got way too much and never matured enough to realize that all of this is BS anyway.

Ummm's the word said...

"But it was also expressed that "Kate just loves the book signings and the interaction with all of the fans." And added that Zondervan did not initially schedule all of these book signings, but that Kate requested more added.

Maybe the reason Kate wants to be on the road so much is so she can spend time alone with Mr. Gray. We all know she doesn't "love interacting with her fans." Just a thought. The whole thing is so suspect.

yeaisaidthat said...

"Kate has certainly been coached. The black dress on the Today show? All from the PR firms instructions."

IMO, Kate Gosselin has a PR team that is consulting and representing her EXCLUSIVELY! There is NO MORE J & K Gosselin 'family business' its ALL about PROTECTING & PRESERVING KATE's image!!! Not the J & K Gosselin image. In her interviews Kate says , SHE is a survivor, not WE or OUR marriage will survive.
Im sure J & K are 'handling matters in private'ie, 'have your lawyer call mine'. When all is done and said, Jon Gosselin will be nothing more to Kate than 'my babies daddy'.

RobandKimplus1 said...

Just something I found interesting --- On Perez Hilton's website Deanna Hummel's brother was discussed and PH claims that US Weekly says that the brother was NOT PAID for his information about the affair. I know that, for me, this adds ALOT of credibility to these allegations. Even with photos etc., I, like kate, was hesitant to believe people who are paid for their stories but he was not paid - hope kate reads that!

This is all so hard to keep up with! Yikes!

lindahoyt said...
Come on tabloids...you HAVE got to out Kate and Steve Neild. It isn't fair that Jon is the only one to get raked over the coals for cheating. Find out why an executive Vice president of a security agency, is personally going to every book signing with a reality star, and carrying her purse. Some even say they saw him rubbing her feet on a plane!

A man who watched over royality and presidents, and worked his way up in a large company, would NOT suddenly be back to doing body guard duty. He is a desk jockey now.

Come on!

5/08/2009 9:28 AM
--------------------------

I am guessing he is remaining highly professional in his duties.

He has seen Her Royal Hiney in all her good, bad, and ugly.

He has seen her shriek at her husband and her kids.

He saw her crying on the airplane.

He has done some very critical work in his time.

Surely he would NOT even care to try to cuddle up with Herself, The High and Mighty Queen Katie.

UGH! Just can't see it, sorry.

lindahoyt said...

See, living selfishly hurts everyone you love. Jon, even though he is justified in wanting to be appreciated and loved, broke his vows; and now he has hurt his 8 little children, himself, and a 23 year old young woman. All because he thought to himself, "I deserve this!"

But, if his focus was on the children that he brought into this world; who did not ask to come into this world, nor to be celebrities; he would realise that they DO NOT DESERVE THIS! They do not deserve what their parents have done to them, nor what they continue to do to them!

Jon, tell the truth. The truth will set you free. Finally become a person your kids can admire. Admitting your mistakes...but, also repenting and changing your behavior; will go a long way with your kids. Make them, truly and honestly your focus. Try to work things out with Kate. You can, with God's help. But, it is your family, you are the man of the house, and the head of the family. You must make the first move. And that move must be to stop the lies, stop the deceptions. Move forward honestly.

Break up with the girlfriend, and ask her forgiveness for causing her to committ adultery and bringing her into shame at work and in the public. Ask her forgiveness for making her think you would get a divorce. Tell her that you would not want her to have a future with a lying cheater. She deserves better than what you can give her.

Greed is a deadly sin.

Judging from Kate's demeanor on the Today Show and pics I've seen from the other interviews, I think she's on medication. Seems robotic. Just a thought but I still don't feel sorry for her. She wants this.

Mother of Two (wanted more, couldn't afford, would never ask for donations to support them) said...

Again, I'm afraid to suggest this, but why not e-mail, phone, or write Nancy Grace (I know, I know, a lot of people probably hate her too). Again, the point is to truely out Jon and Kate, play hard-ball, not soft-ball like Today Show, Larry King, etc. Nancy Grace is a pit-bull when it comes to children being harmed, the majority of her shows go after people who have in some way harmed children. Plus, Nancy is herself the mother of multiples (she has twins). Jane-Velz Mitchell really despises Jon and Kate, she needs to be encouraged to continue to go after them. There is nothing worse than wolves-in-sheeps clothing (i.e. Jon and Kate).

@Charlotte said:

"I agree with most of the aforementioned comments. However, as a brief aside, I think it's important to acknowledge the sort of class-war happening on this site."

I'm glad someone finally spoke up about this. Because at the end of the day, NONE of us really NEEDS more than a roof over our heads, 2000 calories of food a day, and a few clothes to keep us warm. Someone who only has 1 television isn't automatically morally superior to someone who has 3.

For example: my husband and I gave up our cars for environmental reasons, but last week I bought a $600 pair of shoes. So am I a 'good' person or a selfish, wasteful person?

Environmentalists would say I'm good; automotive workers would say I'm ruining their livelihood. Clerks in the designer shoe store would say I'm good, because I'm helping them to keep their jobs; my social-worker sister would say I should do more for disadvantaged people.

In other words: any line you draw (i.e. a $500k house is acceptable, but a $1 million house is excessive) is totally arbitrary, and there is nothing wrong with wanting to be able to buy a pair of Louboutin shoes once in a while.

So let's take that moral judgment off the table, and focus on the real issues, which can basically be summed up like this: Kate would rather drive 1 hour to obtain a $20 refund for her coupon than spend an hour with her kids.

And that only makes sense if you haven't got enough food, shelter or warm clothing.

I totally agree with you about people who have paid their dues and reap from the fruits of their labor....

But come on! Are insinuating that everyone who posts on this website and complain about the "lifestyle" Jon and Kate have are trailer trash.

Are you saying Jon and Kate work hard and deserve their lifestyle?

Please elaborate.

sadie said...

Again, everyone says that Kate wants this, but Jon isn't exactly eschewing the money. He's got sports cars, takes trips, wears nice clothes, etc.

I don't deny that Kate loves the fame, wants the money, and enjoys the freebies. I think Jon wants it all too, except for the fame. I don't think he likes being in the spotlight. But, other than that, they aren't that different.

I wonder, too, how much of him developing a sudden distaste for the spotlight has to do with how much it impedes his extracurricular activities.

They are both to blame. Her being louder and more obnoxious about it doesn't absolve him.

NahnCee said...

I've been wondering about the money aspect of this situation, too. Obviously Jon and Kate are using money paid by TLC to the family for their own uses, but is there no legal protection for the children already in place?

I'm thinking specifically of laws in California like the Jackie Coogan law which were enacted to put aside a certain percentage of a child actor's wages into a trust fund where the parents couldn't get at it.

Gary Coleman's parents "misappropriated" a huge chunk of his earnings, but were later made to give him back $3.8 million after he sued them.

What I'm wondering is if the children are considered to be "actors" and if Pennsylvania (or where-ever the program originates from) has any similar laws like the ones enacted by California.

I'm surprised that no one like Gloria Alred or Dr. Phil or Oprah has bothered to ask TLC what provisions have been made legally to protect the children's earnings, or is it all considered to be just Jon and Kate's own personal salary per episode.

Mother of Two (wanted more,couldn't afford, would never ask for donations to support them) said...

What about the IRS? Has anyone ever reported Jon and Kate for their ALL-CASH "love donations", untold "freebies" and write-offs? I would bet the last 5 or 6 years of the Gosselins income-tax returns would be a gold-mine for the IRS trying to make an example of what NOT to do. Just like everything else Jon and Kate does...they are examples of what not to do. They are such liars, I can't believe for one second they have been honest on their income-tax returns. Perhaps that would be the proverbial straw-that-breaks-the-camel's-back: and IRS audit of Jon and Kate.

AnneMarie said...

My guess would be that no one would recognize Steve aka Mr.Grey, and that they WOULD notice either Jon or Kate shopping. My guess would be that Steve bought it FOR Jon to give to Dede-maybe he even thought it was going to Kate, and was just doing Jon a solid by doing legwork for him.

Still valid in my book.

It's not like the paperwork said "customer ed fitzwiller" who we don't know.

Steve is still close enough to this mess to play into it.

but that's the difference, and why so many people are upset with j&k. they DON'T work ridiculously long hours to afford such luxuries, they are hawking "books" across the country, getting paid $25K to sit on a stage and regurgitate the same sob story, and parting working people from their money, in the form of admission to tea with kate, $20 snapshots of their family, and "love offerings"!!!

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

Yeaisaidthat this statement just struck a chord with me. Kate has a pattern of using and tossing people aside when they are of no further use to her. Could Kate be in the process of tossing Jon away also? She doesn't need him because she has the fame, fortune and is the wronged woman (not my opinion though) in this affair.

zoey said...
He never says "i did not cheat on my WIFE" instead, he says he didnt cheat on KATE -snip-

Yeah, but Kate told him not to call her his "wife". And that was a couple of seasons ago.

Just my opinion, but if these morons are legally married and "dating" people other than their spouses, they're cheating. And If they're truly the Christians they wanted good-hearted-donors to believe, their God calls them cheaters. too.

Jen K said...

The receipt:

Ok, so Jon says to Steve, "hey I want to get Kate a present but I don't want her to see it on the credit card. Plus, I don't want someone in the store to see me buy it, report it on a blog somewhere and then the surprise is ruined. So, can you go in and buy it on your card, and I'll give you the cash?"

All the while, rubbing his hands together thinking he pulled one over on Kate AND Steve.

Hmm...

monica in pa said...

And in response to whether or not Steve bought the purse on Jon's behalf thinking it was for Kate, didn't someone report that it was fed-exed straight to Dede's house? If that's the truth, Steve knew about Jon's affair, since it clearly wasn't sent to the McMansion. Which means Kate had to have known too. Right??
