Not watching, 3 weeks so far.

Babs said...

Still not going to watch.

WorkerBee said...

I'll be waiting for the recap! I'm TLC-Free these days!! ;-D

Marie said...

Pretty soon Dr. Phil will come by, too.

Brenda said...

What "normal" family has Emeril randomly stop by their house?!

Joanne said...

I have lost all respect for Emeril. I wont be watching.

Lots of Luck said...

Once again more lies, Jon is speaking in the promo of the "fun" it has been to do the show. What,
he just said a few episodes back how much he did not like it. Make up your mind Jon.

mom-of-one said...

Everyone but Jon, I'm guessing?

A Mother's Walk said...

Please tell me that the Food Network isn't associated with TLC? I will just die!

momof5 said...

Will probably be about as boring as the episode with Sara Snow was. Emeril was canceled not long ago from the food Network & I don't think Sara Snow is making shows anymore. Could that be an omen?

K8 ain't GR8 said...

Now I know why Kate's getting a kitchen makeover.

She yelled "BAM!" and the shrill shattered all the glass, which scratched the stainless steel and cracked the granite.

jonandkatewho? said...

Sounds pretty boring to me.

I haven't had alot of sleep lately. This means that if I even TRY to watch this show, it will put me to sleep after the first 3 minutes or so.

I think I'll just skip it.

KiSSy said...

I never really liked Emeril either. I'm one of those people who doesn't believe that putting garlic in something makes you a Super Chef.

Anyway....did y'all see the report that Kate had TWO dishwashers delivered to the house? Who the hell washes paper plates?

luckyhdragon said...

Won't watch. Never watch.

DPhillips said...

A Mother's Walk:

Food Network isn't listed as part of the Discovery Channel family...but I wouldn't put it past them to own it secretly, what with the Ace of Cakes episode and now the Emeril episode. What's next? Rachel Ray comes in to teach Helpers...I mean Kate how to make meals in 30 minutes for the family? Then Paula Dean shows her the joy of butter?

AnneMarie said...

COOKING Lessons??? Ya, that's who you want to buy a cookbook from....someone who needs COOKING lessons.
Books she's qualified to write....

Feel free to add to the list.

How to suck the life out of your children.

How to Alienate Friends and Family in 4 short years.

How to run a scam and get paid for it.

How to dig mole crabs without getting sand in your diamond rings.

Love me, or I'll leave you behind.

Me, me, me!

How to Lie and Twist the truth when you get caught.

Don't Worry, You're Disposable Too!

Sometimes, Paula Deen swings by my place to cook for me!

Feeling Sorry for the 8 Kids said...

There's nothing about either Jon or Kate that surprises me anymore--not even the "random" trip to Charm City Cakes or the "random" visits from celebrities like Emeril.

I've just came across an old story in The Reading Eagle from 2004. It was around the time when the sextuplets came home from the hospital. Their nursery was designed by people associated with the NBC reality show called "Home Delivery" and, yes, Jon & Kate were both on an episode of that show.

http://www.readingeagle.com/article.aspx?id=140499

This proves that they were both reality show whores from the very beginning with their hands extended looking for freebies. I wonder what kind of free goodies they got from Emeril. I'm going to wait for the recap to find out--I'd rather watch Rachel Maddow on MSNBC (which is on at the same time as that other show) than put up with watching a couple pretending that they are still in a loving marriage just for the cameras.

Peas and Carrots said...

I hate this, it is becoming a celebrity place to hang out. It is all about who TLC can flop into an otherwise boring show and give it some zing. I pity the poor guests because you never know what kind of attitude they are going to get from KON. It has been less than gracious and down right rude. Another freebie ride on the back of a quasi celebrity, ratings grab.

I won't watch the train wreck any longer, it is bad enough when I am in the grocery store I am bombarded with images of KON. Who cares anymore.

Time to stop this sham and spare the kids. They are already goind to be messed up enough by their two self absorbed parents.

Kyakuma said...

100 episodes in a little over 2 years. That's practically not stop filming.

Heidi said...

I remember back when the twins took cooking lessons, Kate said that she and Jon had a strict rule about not eating *anything* a child has cooked. Wonder what changed? Oh, right...money.

Kim said...

Yay, more stupid cross-referencing! I saw that Jon was going to be on an episode of American Chopper sometime in the near future, too. TLC is milking this for all it can.

Annie said...

Why not Anthony Bourdain? I'd pay money to watch he and Kate go a few rounds. Of course Steve might get jealous, being Anthony has money and all.

Scary Skier New Jersey said...

Another reason not to watch as I could never watch Emeril, he is so full of himself, so I guess him and Kate will fight over the camera time! I ate in one of his resturants and I swear I have gotten better meals at Chili's and that isn't saying much!

Wow, four years and already 100 episodes? No, their kids are not exploited at all!!!!

I did see Jon in the preview, so it will be interesting how he spins this, after his "media make over."

melissa said...

The previews for this episode are ridiculous.
"Every family has rough times...but what more than a special occasion to bring the family together!" Enter happy music....
Ya, let's celebrate the 100th episode and the destruction of a family!

MissBailey said...

Oh I get it... nice tie-in. Emeril's new restaurant" Chops", just opened in the new Sands Casino in Bethlehem, Pa, andJon & Kate are from PA...its all about product placement and $$$. I read that this was filmed in Feb or March of this year.... all before Kate "Gate"..... Honestly, who I would love to see "pop in" on the Gosselins would be Anthony Bourdain or Martha Stewart, I think both of them would scare Kate and not take any garbage....Oh well, a gal can dream".....LOL

diane090 said...

I will not be watching. haven't in quite some time.

ForeverHopeful said...

I DO plan to watch the show tonight! I am FOREVER HOPEFUL that something will cause Kate to begin to see what she's really like and make changes before it is too late.

Johanna said...

Oh my. I just watched the Access Hollywood Video with the water bottle. Would somebody please tell me that it was edited to look like Kate was refusing to give Mady water and that it did not really happen that way. Did she actually take a drink in front of Mady after Mady said she was really thirsty? What did Mady say at the end, it sounded like "your're really mean - you drank it right in front of my face". Please, somebody tell me that is not what happened. Or else, we have Mommie Dearest two on our hands. I am not watching the new episode tonight. In fact, until this circus is off of the air, I'm saying goodbye to TLC for good.

ForeverHopeful said...

Do you think it is possible for Kate to have a guest in her home and treat the guest kindly without sarcasm?

I am Forever Hopeful that one day we will see this happen and she will really feel her kindness.

This sure would go a long way to help her children...many who are FAR kinder than Kate is!

A little child shall lead them...

whatsthisshowaboutagain said...

I wont be watching but would like to add. Why do they need Emeril to come vist the Gosselin family and prepare a 100th episode meal? Why dont TLC film KATE actually preparing, serving, and the entire family sitting down to celebrate the filming of their 100th episode? Secondly, why all the cross promotion? If viewers want to watch a cooking show that features Emeril doesnt he have his own show or about a thousand cook books that he has published ? If viewers what to watch OCC, dont the Tuttles have their own dysfunctional reality show? I see absolutely no connection between guys that have their own custom motorcycle business and the eight Gosselin children, or J & K for that matter.

PotatoChip said...

It's very touching (and telling) that this family can put their differences aside to celebrate their 100th episode together.

Too bad they can't do it for their kids, their famaily's survival or anything else that doesn't directly involve money.

They're sickos. People like Kate cannot survive and thrive without all of the people around her who buy into her shit.
I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how she does it. It won't last though, and as much as I hate her I won't get any joy out of watching her implode on national tv. It's tragic all around.

pinkdiamond611 said...

Remember, it has already been established that this Emeril episode was filmed months ago. . . This was all before all the cheating allegations became public. It was easier to fake being happy back then because they still could have their affairs and faux marriage going at the same time. Not any longer. TLC thinks that the public can be fooled into thinking that the Kons are civil to each other and can come together as a family when necessary. Thanks to this blog and all of the media outlets getting tips from this blog, the truth WILL get out there.

Oh, how I wish this was true. For the both of us.

idontunderstandkateshair said...

"Who washes paper plates?"

LMAO!! I keep wondering what Sara and that Greenovate guy would think of the continued use of paper?

The Drew Family said...

Shameless advertising. I always thought Emril's show was the most boring program on the Food Network. I used to love TLC but I can't turn it on without seeing the Gosselins on every string of commercials. It's really annoying. I've recently fallen in love with the Travel Channel and the Home network (HGTV).

3rd Rock From The Sun said...

Emeril is a loser, just like Jon and Kate. His show wasn't that good. I guess that's why Food Network got rid of him.
I have seen previews for tonight's show. Kate is seen hitting Emeril. What is wrong with that woman?

I won't be watching, but I will look forward to the recap.

Tammy said...

This has just gotten absolutely ridiculous! These kids are going to grow up thinking everyone on television is their extended family! They should be cooking with their "real" family. Grandmas, Grandpas, aunts and uncles. Such a shame that a celebrity is welcomed into their home but not their own relatives. I thank god my children have had the privilege of knowing and being loved by their grandparents. Life is so short. These children are being denied the right to have relationships with the people who truly care about them the most.

motorcitymom said...

every time on the promo when jon says that "everybody knows" that he doesn't have male friends I crack up. Is he inferring that all his friends are underaged female college students?

IH8K8 said...

It's only been 100 episodes?

Not watching. It's probably not contributing to Kate's inflated sense of self-importance to have people like the Teutles of OCC and Emeril coming to HER or anything.

Nice hooker heels when you were getting gas today, Kate.

bcsurvivor2001 said...

Of ALL the ideas to come up with to celebrate 100 episodes - this is what they all voted on? Please. It doens't even make any sense. About as much as going to the cake place - having a famous chef come to your house - having a pink scooter and red motorcyle custom made for you......that's what all the "normal/everyday" people in my neighborhood do.

And from the previews/commercials this was filmed way back when - when they were actually able to be in the same room without daggers at each other. Although there is one snippet I giggled about. She is criticizing (wow who'd of thunk :)) him for using the wrong size spatula or spoon or something - Emeril says something to the effect of "don't pick on him"....she immediately takes her weapon...er I mean spoon...and proceeds to whack Emeril on the hand/arm..........I was like e-gads..........of course she then does her giggle/cackle.

Brother brother brother.

and I also love the spot with her stiring 2 pans at one time - something I do consistently for dinner too.

Sad sad getting sadder :(

Things that make you go Hmm said...

Twice the reason not to watch -- Kate Gosselin AND Emeril Lagasse. He has a restaurant in Atlanta and a very bad reputation. Not a nice person. Kate and Emeril -- Two peas in a pod!

Kelly said...

I'm not watching it anymore. Who cares and what's Emeril (sic) doing on that show anyway. Only think I've seen this woman cook is pancakes.

Hater said...

I am pretty sure Food Network got rid of Emeril, maybe it is just reruns on food network?? He has a new show on another network I do not get on my cable. All PR hype.

IrishGal said...

I think I'll pass on watching a Emeril hand bits of food to kids in bibs and highchairs when I could just a Kate-Gosselin-free cooking show right on the good network.

met said...

I am watching "The Closer". I love Kyra!

I've taken TLC off my guide (not that I watched it much before)

Emeril is obnoxious. Him and that "BAM" Just like Rachel Ray and her "delish"

Ashley said...

K8 ain't GR8 said...

When is she getting a kitchen makeover? I didn't know about that.

BAM said...

Emeril was taped approx. 3 months ago. March 11 maybe. If they show the tents in the yard that would be in April. Remember the tents we all thought were for the 5th birthday party could have been for this "celebration"

wendyzr said...

In a promo for this awhile back Kate was saying "someone asked me if it would be weird having someone come into my kitchen and cook and I said not much"

-because I have an organic chef in my kitchen all the time!

KatesNoMom said...

Ok - this really annoys me - the promo makes a big deal of "good times and bad" or something dopey like that - and then they show this episode, that was taped WEEKS before all the tabloid explosion. And we are supposed to believe they are all one big happy family tonight?

I have such a problem with people who rewrite history to fit their own agenda. grrr..

The Kids Deserve Better said...

I'm definitely not watching. This show is so boring and as we all know not an average family. I can't relate to them at all anymore. They're just a bunch of lying greedy (you know what)

mom in illinois said...

I believe that Emril has a show on Planet Green which is part of discovery.

shann said...

yeah,and sometimes people offer me hair implants!

see,katie isnt that special,now is she?

Bladeofgrass said...

Not watching ever again.

Curious about Kate said...

Trish said...
This is a MUST read blog written by an ex-neighbor of the Gosselins who is also the President of an organization that promotes the well-being of kids 'The Center for Parent/Youth Understanding'.


http://learningmylines.blogspot.com/2009/06/jon-kate-too-latehtml

++++++

Learningmylines is a great blog. The man who writes it seems genuinely concerned about the Gosselin family. He also gives some first hand insight into the working of the family. Well worth the read!

What I find really interesting is how Kate acts behind the scenes.

More links with anecdotes please!

Fall RIver, Massachusetts resident said...

Emeril was born and brought up in Fall River, Massachusetts which is where I live.His brother's kids came to our school before moving to New Orleans. Any one who grew up with Emeril knows what a great guy he is and what a wonderful Portuguese family he came from. I am so surprised that he would do this show especially with all the controversy surrounding this it. I can not understand why he would do it? I hope not for rating or money!! Emeril is always looking out the best for children. It makes no sense.

Deb said...

What is really dumb about all this, is that this episode was taped before all the "drama" hit the fan.

So when you see Jon mugging it up and talking about how "fun" it all is, he was still trying to 'play along' with their little charade.

I like that the voice-over says that even in difficult times, you have to rally together to get through it. Which is totally misleading because it's not like they split up, and are now "working on it".

I haven't watched for awhile.. and can honestly say I'm not even curious to see clips on youtube. The same droll inane comments by KON, blah blah blah.Boring.

I do notice she's smiling and acting much differently than how she usually acts..it's so funny to see Kate around celebrities. Of course she was totally ignorant around the Renovation Nation guy, but she wants her own show (possibly cooking? like another Rachel Ray), so she's REALLY kissing up to Emeril.

Kelly said...

Gimme a break...last week Duff & the cakes, this week Emeril...and I saw another trailer showing Jon & the motorcycle guys & their show. This is really getting ridiculous.

What "normal & everyday" family gets these perks? I wasn't against it in the beginning but it has truly spun out of control.

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

I'm with you! It's the season premier tonight and I'd much rather watch a well scripted program than this fake reality family drama.

Ava2 said...

I always switched Emeril off when he was on the Food Network and now I have TWO reasons not to watch tonight, Emeril & Kate.

A friend of mine was in the audience for one of Emeril's shows where he passed out some of the food to the audience and she said it tasted horrible, an oily mess. I'm glad Food Network got rid of him.

Marie said...

Forget Emeril, saw a promo for this week's American Chopper episode. They will be visiting Jon to get a feel for what kind of custom made motorcycle he wants. And tell me that line again, "we're doing this for our kids"! Yea, right and I have a bridge to sell you in Brooklyn!

"Who washes paper plates?"

LMAO!! I keep wondering what Sara and that Greenovate guy would think of the continued use of paper?

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

I've been thinking about this. If they wanted to appear "green" and we all know they really aren't, if they still wanted to use disposable plates, etc., they could switch to using the products made by this company:

http://www.trellisearth.com/

No, I don't work for them. I just noticed their stuff for sale in my local Cash and Carry when I was looking for plastic forks and spoons for my picnic basket. It's both sustainable and biodegradable.

Ava2 said...

I'll bet tonight's show will turn out to be a ratings bust. Too many viewers won't watch and I applaud that - we have the power to shut this show down. Just DO NOT WATCH.

I wish TLC would just bring back "Table for 12" which was a NORMAL family. I also saw a preview for a new show on Bravo about a young couple who are raising sextuplets and they are grounded in their faith. It won't be long till J&K are history.

chesterctymom said...

I'm in awe of the strength that Kon has to rally around and do a show...I mean just go through their everyday life...with Emeril.

It's all about the bottom line, how much money Kon AND Emeril can make off of the backs of the Gosselin 8. Shame on you Emeril.

Pat said...

jasminesushi, maybe they're lying about ratings. I'm not watching anymore because they're boring. Kate is a slack jawed cave dweller who's knuckles drag the ground. Why should I listen to that?

Hater said...

ForeverHopeful: I don't think Kate watches the show so she won't see anything. You will and you will just get more and more frustrated. Not worth it for me.

As far as Jon having no male friends comment I'll bet he said it with that smug face of his. You know he is just mocking us and everything that has been in the papers about him. What a jerk. He should just keep his big mouth shut and film the show. Talk about having no pride.

Jen K said...

Clearly TLC is taking a page from the "Scooby Doo School of Guest Stars" handbook.

Harlem Globetrotters? Check!

Steve Thomas? Check!

Emeril Lagasse? Check!

American Chopper dudes? Check!

I'm half expecting Phyllis Diller and Davey Jones later this season at this rate.

UGH! said...

Why not Anthony Bourdain?

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

Ha ! I would pay $ as well. AB would rip K8 a new one.

Comment about Nielson ratings...

Seriously, who fills out those surveys? I have been sent a survey twice in the past 10 years. I never filled it out. I think most people say they will do it and then find they don't have time.

TLC can make up numbers and no one would be any the wiser. I still don't believe that nearly 10 million viewed the season premiere. On a holiday. At 9PM. for an hour. And then reported it to Nielson. Not a chance.

Dumb and Dumber and the Dumberer network (hey Dumber can make up her own words) will find that no one is watching anymore. People are not going to watch all of the freebies and vacations that are being begged for by these idiots in a time when so many are jobless and many are homeless. You watch tv to escape reality, not watch a "reality" that isn't real when people are begging for handouts because they feel entitled. Having 8 kids doesn't entitle you to anything.

and on that note...as the 2nd oldest of 8, growing up in a neighborhood of large families, I am so thankful that my parents taught me the values that are getting me through life: nothing in life is free, you must work for what you want, don't expect handouts from anyone. so sad those kids will never know what a real life is like. I hate for the day of the eyeopening experience.

I'm done. I have a life to live and it doesn't include this show tonight. Not sorry about it either!

Michelle said...

Does Emeril use paper plates?

Just saying said...

Annie and Miss Bailey:

Thanks for the great laugh. Anthony Bourdain would be AWESOME. Couldn't you see him out in the back with Leah and Alexis smoking a cigarette? Or talking to Collin about women and relationships.

Martha Stewart might be an uncomfortable Clash of the Control Freaks, but I do wonder whether Kate is modeling her media plans based on the rise/fall/return of Martha. If so, she's probably planned a future in which she shows she has a sense of humor about herself, like Martha eating a burrito with Conan or letting him tease her by messing up her cookie cutters.

BTW, I was just sharing a laugh over Anthony Bourdain with my daughter who's a huge fan. She said when her college row house was interviewing chefs, one applicant had Emeril on his resume. And even though it would have probably been better from a job seeking perspective to sing his praises, the guy had not one good thing to say about him. "Basically a big jerk."

Barb said...

BettyBoop said...

I don't care that I'm not a Nielsen rating family I'm not watching and I've written both TLC and my cable provider why several times. TLC is a vile peddler of sad, freak shows and a disgrace to feeding puerile appetites of the lowest common population. If it's not look at this freaky family of 18 kids, or sextuplets then it's the tree man, the half ton teen, mermaid girl, the co-joined twins. If they presented the topics with grace and compassion that would be one thing but they seem smarmy and sensationalist.
I think they love the fact Kate can be an abusive twit to her own little ones and submissive husband. Jon is far from any prize but at least he's not slapping his wife and telling her she's stupid and ignorant and can't even breath correctly.
Emeril is an idiot from what little I've seen of him in commercials for some toothpaste and a pilot for some failed sitcom. Maybe once he was a good person but if he thinks putting kids on display like animals in the zoo is a good thing then my opinion of him is further in the toilet.
Yes, I do like the recaps because I like the amazing way the writers can take this putrid mess and give it some sort of zing. I'm curious how low they will go before those Nielsen families finally wake the hell up and stop tuning in. Do you have to be brain dead to be part of the Nielson rating families?

Heather said...

Next guest: Larry the Cable Guy

He and Jon and Kate's Boyguard can elbow each other in the ribs and yell "Get 'er done!!!"

yeaisaidthat said...

"If nobody is watching, why are the ratings so high? Oh go ahead and watch - you know you want to. Shhh.......I won't tell anybody!"

Their ratings are so high because the family is scandelous! You dont actually believe that viewers tune in to get a glimpse of how two self proclaimed christian parents manage the 'challanges of raising a set of twins and sextuplets'. Why watch J & K + 8 when I can get my daily fix of lying, cheating and dysfunction by watching the Maury show.

Michelle said...

http://learningmylines.blogspot.com/2009/06/jon-kate-too-late.html

This link is a must read for anyone tired of the trainwreck. This is spot on. Very well written and very true from someone who lived near them.

Nice hooker heels when you were getting gas today, Kate.

I saw that too. I thought Kate only pumped gas "like twice in her life"?
Funny

Techymum said...

Just a thought to those who bring up Table for Twelve, Duggars....etc.

It is my personal opinion that there needs to be laws brought in to protect ALL children on reality based shows.

If these families want to produce annual shows on how their kids are doing, families coping, and we all know that the KIDS interests are being protected - I would be ok with that.

What worries me is that we have seen with the Gosselin family, the parents do NOT have the best interest of their children in mind. Thus, there must be laws to protect all kids.

I now jump off my little pedestal from which I speak....

Jenna L. said...

Haven't watched this show in ages, and I don't plan to.

The kids are cute, but so are most kids. I see plenty of happy moments with cute little kids at the elementary school Breakfast Club I volunteer at. Happy kids who aren't being exploited. And, armed with stain remover, basic cleaning spray, a broom, and a mop, I don't feel the need to scream at them or put them in bibs while they eat their muffins, bagels, oranges and yogurt.

And I'm sure I can find a rich, spoiled, classless brat like Kate somewhere in my high school if, for some reason, such people entertained me.

So...I can honestly say I don't give a damn about this show.

If only Kate hadn't sold her children for money, and instead only chose to do a short annual documentary about life with sextuplets. No tantrums, fights, or childhood constipation - just some shots of a nice family video about a normal family with two sets of multiples. I wouldn't be concerned for the children if they only had 20 minutes of quality, non-humiliating footage aired.

I honestly don't see how anyone can be a fan of this show. Even if, somehow, you like Kate and Jon, and totally miss the exploitation factor - come on, they're showing kids going to the dentist. Parents cooking dinner. Kids screaming. Parents arguing.

What part of this is entertaining?? Seriously, what do the fans say? "Wow, I've never seen a dentist's office before! Oh, man, this is going to be so exciting! Kids getting their teeth checked!" What?

This has been said so many times...but I just hope they cancel the show as soon as possible.

IrishGal said...

I think I'll pass on watching a Emeril hand bits of food to kids in bibs and highchairs when I could just a Kate-Gosselin-free cooking show right on the good network.

Oops, lots of typos, my mistake.

Natari said...

Not watching two weeks sober so far. The episode tonight is not current because Katie Irene just got back from NC with her lover.

I just saw a clip on TMZ showing Jon tidying up the garage for her impending arrival. LOL Then they showed a past episode of her telling him where to put pine cones in the garage.

Erin said...

Just Jared:
Self-proclaimed fashionista Kate Gosselin stops to get gas for her car on Monday morning (June 8) in Reading, Penn.

The 33-year-old John and Kate Plus 8 mom took a quick freak from her kids — Cara, Mady, Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah and Joel — after returning from a vacation in North Carolina with her sextuplets (they filmed another episode there)."

a quick FREAK is right!!

SavetheSheeples said...

"Please tell me that the Food Network isn't associated with TLC? "

As far as I know, Emeril is no longer on Food Network (I don't know if they even show repeats of his shows anymore). This happened 2 years ago? Maybe 1? I forget. I never really watched his show anyway.

I forget which network he moved to.

As for the Gosselins, I have not yet watched last weeks 2 episodes. I am debating on it. I really have no interest in watching.

Sham Fam said...

I feel that by watching I am part of this child abuse that is taking place. I can't believe that TLC and the state of PA continue to allow eight minor children to used without their permission.

I read some where recently that the children were asked by Kate, something along these lines; "Do you want to work in the 'family business' or would you rather mommy and daddy work like other parents and you go to day care?"

Melody said...

Emril really isn't affiliated with Food Network anymore. They canceled one of his shows and only air reruns of one of his earlier shows.

He has the show the on The Green Network but other than that, doesn't really have much power anymore.

You wouldn't see Bobby Flay doing a guest stunt like this.

And Bobby Flay would NOT take Kate's crap.

Do you think a Dirty Jobs crossover is in the future?

I don't think we'll see the Gosselin's visit the Roloffs ever since word on the street is Amy HATES Kate after meeting her at a TLC event.

Amanda said...

can you say, "Jump the shark"?

3rd Rock From The Sun said...

Kate running errands all by herself? I guess she got tired of having her little blessings with her. Gee, eight kids and she can't take one of them with her? Well, we know that the boys are icky, but what about the girls? Perhaps Kate was having some "afternoon delight" with Steve at some special hideout.

Kate IS 34, right? said...

How come on Justjared Kate is now referred to as 33 instead of her actual age of 34?

Once again more lies, Jon is speaking in the promo of the "fun" it has been to do the show. What,
he just said a few episodes back how much he did not like it. Make up your mind Jon.

TLC is making is so easy for me to not watch. At first I thought it would be hard to boycott the show because I thought there might actually be some interesting sounding episodes this season. But so far none of the shows this season even sound interesting. I don't think I would watch this episode even if I wasn't boycotting the show.

so irritated said...

Feeling sorry for the 8 Kids said...

"I've just came across an old story in The Reading Eagle from 2004. It was around the time when the sextuplets came home from the hospital. Their nursery was designed by people associated with the NBC reality show called "Home Delivery" and, yes, Jon & Kate were both on an episode of that show.

This proves that they were both reality show whores from the very beginning with their hands extended looking for freebies."



Yes Feeling sorry, this is what we the fine citizens of PA have been enduring for five years.
On one of the Reading Eagle blogs, a person who said they were a reporter posted this entry in 2005. They claimed to have been there for the big "reveal."

As a member of the media I have been covering this story since almost day one. When I first went to the news conference in Hershey I was so excited for the Gosselins. They seemed liked good people and they had so many people really pulling for them.

However, as time went by they became, how do I say, unlikable. They no longer seemed genuine. They had such a transparent agenda.

I was at the house the day the television crew came to film "Home Delivery" and I was just appalled at things that were said by Kate once the cameras were turned off and she thought her voice couldn't be heard. She complained about the nursery saying the murals would scare her kids and that the twin’s room was "horrendously horrendous"...a phrase I just can't forget. She then went on to say "thanks for nothing..." I couldn't believe my ears and I am not a naive person.

So, my advice to the Gosselins is...endear yourself to people....make them want to like you. You have become so very unappealing and just down right self-righteous. No one wants to help affluent self-righteous people when there are so many good people in dire straits that also need a hand. And, lastly, Kate stop talking....stop giving interviews, stop pleading for help, stop. You are beginning to sound a bit like a nut...a selfish, wish-you-could-change-your-mind kind of mother as well.


The description this person gives of Kate sounds exactly like the 2009 version, no? There is seriously something wrong with this woman.

NahlaWantsOut said...

I won't be watching. Again.

I'm watching The Closer.

I will be checking back to read the recap sometime this week. I guess eventually even those will stop as many of us are now boycotting the show.

Gotta go, Ina Garten and Giada DeLaurentis are at the door to cook my family dinner!

Syzygy said...

Tonight's guest star, Emeril Lagasse.

Can we stop calling this a reality show now?

TandLMommy28 said...

I officially canceled all of my shows on TLC from my DVR. Even Little People... even though I love the Roloffs and respect what they are doing with their show, I had to make follow my heart and call it quits on TLC altogether. I feel quite liberated!

Just Jared:
Self-proclaimed fashionista Kate Gosselin stops to get gas for her car on Monday morning (June 8) in Reading, Penn.

The majority of the US population ages 16-90+ do this very exact mundane task on any given day of the week. Here Kate Gosselin you get a 'gold star sticker' on your mommy chart today. Does that make you feel better?

wowkatepumpsherowngas said...

IH8K8 said...

Nice hooker heels when you were getting gas today, Kate.
_________

I saw that too. I thought Kate only pumped gas "like twice in her life"?
Funny

I guess Steve the 'body gaurd' was given the day off forcing Kate to pump her own gas. I wonder if the Gosselin garbage will pile up until Steve returns or if one of the 'icky boys' will be delegated the task of taking the garbage out.

Kallie said...

I didn't think the great chef Kate needed cooking lessons, what with releasing her own cook book and all. :] Learning from someone else... Should be beneath her, no?

More and more this show bores me. I've already been thoroughly disgusted for a while now. :[

WOW! Is all I can say. I just watched

http://www.thedailybeast.com/blogs-and-stories/2009-06-07/kate-gosselins-top-10-angry-moments/full/

I had never seen the one where she sits in the chair and yells at Jon to do this do that. I love it at the end when he says "You don't play with your kids" So true Jon so true!!
The best part is she admits she doesn't. Wow! I am dumbfounded.

It's a beautiful LIE said...

Forgive me for watching, but did she just say to the boys "go wash your hands in the bathroom by MY room??
Dead give away Kate!!!!

Okay, I'm bored by the show already, and Kate makes my skin crawl, so time to change the channel...

Pauper Princess said...

One of their favorite memories is when Hannah pooped in her bed?!?

Oh, ew.

WomanMother said...

How nice.

Emeril is explaining how to make casseroles for budget purposes.

I'm sure all the millionaire families are taking notes.

*puke*

ManicNarcissism said...

First commercial break and my comment is that the nanny and preschool seem to be doing much to help these kids grow up and be age appropriate. So far they are working politely and nicely with emeril.

Kate sits in couch and says don't ask any questions who ever is here to do interviews will do them. Jon and Kate are both doing them but seperate.

Kate looked mortified when emeril wants kids to touch the actual food. She immediately says go wash hands.
Jon is peeling tons of garlic they aren't using. Weird.

penngirl said...

Not to be crude, but you can tell whether or not the episode was filmed before or after "cheating-gate" by the size of kate's chest.

She 100% had a boob job, no doubt about it. It's glaringly obvious in some of the bikini shots and compared to what she used to look like.

Brian said...

I do not like this woman.

ManicNarcissism said...

Alexis likes smell of garlic. Emeril says the more you can work together as a family the Better and get the kids involved. Like that is going to happen.

2nd commercial break and Kate and Jon have shared 1 verbal exchange. E asks J to put something in oven and K asks if he knows where that is. He says yes he is the master reheater and she says oh yeah you are.

The excitement is just too much I don't know if I can stand it!

Robert said...

I've surprised myself how quickly I have lost interest in this show since the premiere and the icky taste it left in my mouth. Just seeing the paparazzi pics of them on the various blogs is enuf for me.

emeril loves jon.

ManicNarcissism said...

Ok that was funny. Jon says it was fun to watch E come into the kitchen which is Kates territory and take over and push her out. Then emeril told the cameras to come in and Kate was like no oh ok come on. The they show Kate hitting emeril and the E tells Jon he can't believe it is their 100 show and can't believe he made it that long. Kate was quiet. I don't know maybe I AM reading too much into it.

Cherier1 said...

Anyway....did y'all see the report that Kate had TWO dishwashers delivered to the house? Who the hell washes paper plates?


LOL Kissy. Good one!

3 weeks free here also!

youknowwhat said...

Hey Jon, here's a tip: Put the garlic cloves inside a metal bowl, put another metal bowl on like a lid, hold together, and shake. The skins will come right off.

Since you only film a short time every day, you could have used this method to save time on this episode. You yourself said it took you 4 hours.

Oh that's right...You film endless hours all the time.

Modesty??? said...

Re: pumping gas pictures

Why is her top pinned closed, I guess to keep from showing too much cleavage? She was just prancing around in a bikini for the world to see and new she is pinning her top??? Unbelievable.
http://justjared.buzznet.com/gallery/photos.php?yr=2009&mon=06&evt=gosselin-gas&pic=kate-gosselin-gas-station-01.jpg

Oh, why are there even pictures of her pumping gas? I'm mad at myself for even looking at them.

jill said...

Kate is SO thin!

My sister is on tv. When she started she was a size six and looked VERY chubby. She had to drop to a size 2 (5'7") to look normal on tv.

I bet Kate is a size 4. I know she had a tummy tuck...but she must eat nothing and workout all of the time...

Plus, it never hurts to be in love/lust! ;)

Matt said...

can you say, "Jump the shark"?

Wasn't a lot of guest stars one of the warning signs on jumptheshark.com (now tragically gone corporate by tv guide)? Let's hope so.

The badly mismatched interviews are just pathetic. WHY is this still on the air?!?

Cherier1 said...

"Kate is a slack jawed cave dweller who's knuckles drag the ground."

Pat, that could be line o' the day.

TinaW said...

Two hours a day filming, huh? Emeril came in the morning, left after dinner, film rolled all day.

Mommy in PA said...

Thank you Emeril for giving these kids a hot meal for once. However I must boycott you from now on for supporting this family....

Yeah, I watched. said...

Boring. The only sparkle I saw came from Cara's earrings. Guess she got her ears pierced too at some point. I'm glad she got to do it privately though.

Jennifer A. said...

Yeah you know, Emeril and American Chopper stop at my house every week for dinner.

Right. In my fantasy world when I forget the happy pills. This looks nothing like my life.

Also, nice shots of the boys riding bikes without a helmet.

This is so silly, I should have watched Dr G.

Also, we use compostable "paper" plates at times. Made from corn, potatoes and limestone. When we are done, they go in the compost can in the yard.

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

Did you see their lunch? Piece of turkery, few strawberries not sure what else was on there. Can't they at least have a sandwich?

So they ran into Emeril on an Elevator and he BEGGED them to let him come cook for them? Sure right.

Love it when he gets there and she "tell him Cara" She has look of "what are you talking about" Then Kate says, "How much you love to watch his show (or something along those lines)" Cara just smiles. That whole show was a farce. For those of you who didn't watch - good for you. That is 30 minutes of my life I can never get back.

cossysmom said...

I can't believe Kate kept touching her hair while cooking...disgusting. That's the first thing I teach kids when I have them in the kitchen--wash your hands and do not touch your hair or your face!

On the couch, Kate said that she quickly said "sorry" to Emeril after she hit him...sure didn't look that way to me.

Remember this was pre-taped, so she and Jon were getting along. It was nice to see them the way they used to be.

Of course, the ever present bibs were worn!!!

TLC PR continues said...

A Mother's Walk said...
Please tell me that the Food Network isn't associated with TLC? I will just die!

Sorry to disappoint everyone, but, both American Chopper and Emeril are part of the summer lineup on TLC.

AS TLC'S NUMBER ONE SHOW, JK+8 WERE TAPPED TO CREATE SOME PR BUZZ FOR THE LAUNCH OF THESE TLC Shows.

Emeril also has a show on the Planet Green Channel which is the same channel that the Renovation Nation guy who did the solar panels is on. It must be owned by TLC.

There's only one thing that could have salvaged this pathetic excuse of an episode, imo: Emeril having Kate charged with Assault and Battery.

I know I'm beating a dead horse, but this woman's lack of priorities just continues to blow my mind. It really, seriously shocks me and makes me terribly sad. Multiple Ble$$ings, indeed =/

kaitlinsnana said...

I'm over my Jon and Kate phase. Another deadly dull episode and next week doesn't appeal either.

Fluffily said...

You know Jon & Kate's marriage is in trouble when she doesn't screech at him ONE time in an entire episode! She has absolutely zero friends, zero family. She doesn't even have a husband anymore. She has kids, by default. Some of them like her sometimes. She doesn't even like fans, as it was apparent in the cake episode. She doesn't appear to like any of the guests on her show. People that are celebrities by actual talent and merit. One day she will get what she has coming. We just have to wait for it.

I'm sorry - if Emeril stops by my house - I want him to do a little more than Green Bean casserole (with fried onions) and chili mac **LOL**

Then again - consider who he was visitin'......

;-)

Me Me Me says Kate said...

Kate is so consumed with herself and only herself. During this show, it was all about what SHE LIKED, without a thought to what the kids liked. Of course she would never care about Jon....period. I cannot stand this woman. She is disburing to watch and worse to listen to. Her voice is getting more raucous by the minute and her laugh is the kind that puts people over the edge of madness. BAD NEWS!

This will cost Emeril....what little he has left in the name of hoping his new show makes it.

Maggie said...

Aside from totally annoying, this show has become positively boring. I practically fell asleep during Emeril's "cooking lesson."

And WTF is up with "organic brownies"????? Does Kate think we're to be fooled into thinking that they're somehow more healthy for the kids??? Organic means no pesticides in the ingredients, not NO FAT/CALORIES. More proof that she's an idiot.

I did have a revelation while watching Jon struggle with the garlic for so long. Isn't garlic used to keep vampires at bay? Hell, I'D spend four hours cleaning/crushing/whatevering garlic if it would keep Kate away.

BMWoP said...

I think we caught a glimpse of the infamous red spoon!!!!! She had it quite handy...probably used it that morning on a child's behind.

Emeril and Kate are old news... said...

Ok, US Weekly has needed to get a life for sometime now but this takes the cake...TOP STORY...Kate Gosselin slaps Emeril Lagasse with cooking utensil. This being printed a mere 30 minutes after the end of the episode. This darn magazine is obsessed with these ppl.

Yawn said...

Im so disappointed with you TLC..considering you are such ratings-whores, you really should have had Gordon Ramsey in the kitchen with Kate instead of Emeril..how I would love to see Kate try to smack Gordon Ramsey!

Team Plus 8 said...

Controversy aside, the show seems to be on the schedule more often, so more viewers can witness the trainwreck. I don't put that much stock in the ratings.

They should also think about why people are watching. Dave Chappelle stopped his fictional sketch show, because he thought the attention wasn't because of the point he intended to make. When he and Susan Boyle have meltdowns, I have to really wonder about those kids.

HBailey said...

I vividly recall an episode when she said she never puts gas in her car....Jon does that....that's the 'man's job'...she was almost like 'duh....doesn't everybody know that the husband puts gas in the wife's car?' Well, Kate, no...I have been putting gas in my own car the better part of my nearly 20 year marriage.

Just another indicator that he doesn't even live there anymore.

I think it was more Leah's commentary of the situation than Hannah's actual pooping in the bed.

Bev said...

On the American Chopper commercials Jon Gosselin is on their show this week...and he is making fun of Kate and joking about being around his female friends. Maybe there's hope yet for Jon...He said something to the effect "you can go over to my house" and the guy said "No way!" lol. I think it'd be funny if they ended up doing a Jon show instead of Kate. THAT would be awesome.

Grace said...

I was flipping around the TV and decided to watch a few minutes of the show because I haven't watched since somewhere in the middle of last season.

OMG was it boring! Jon peeling garlic no one was going to use was boring. The kids making faces with their turkey was boring (and don't they get bread? Is it too hard to make a sandwich?) Emeril talking about what they were going to make was boring.

I think i watched about five minutes and found something else on the DVR to watch.

And now I have to boycott Sonic. I didn't realize they had commercials on the show. Boo on them.

momof3dogsand3kids said...

I caught just a bit of the episode because my daughter was watching. I couldn't believe that Kate didn't even know you were supposed to peel celery and she is writing a cookbook? She looked pretty inept in the kitchen, if you ask me.

Why is This? said...

The tups speech has not improved at all. They still sound like 4 year olds or maybe younger.

overit said...

I didn't watch.

Rexi & Mia said...

The couch sessions were filmed at a different time than the episode. Kate's hair in the episode is very stripy, and on the couch session, its all blonde. I was trying to figure out why they didn't do the couch session together on this episode, since it was filmed in March, but then I saw her hair and figured "oh, this must be after the cheating incident".

Dee said...

I know some may disagree, but this episode wasn't as objectionable as usual. Kate is not used to having someone else be the boss in 'her' kitchen. At one point Emeril wanted the cameraman to get a closer shot of something and Kate started with "They're not really allowed" Then she gasped, took a deep breath, looked at the cameraman and said something like "ok, you can do it". Of course, a few minutes later she was shooing him out of the way, but she wasn't being nutso about it. As per usual, she made some snarky remarks about Jon and how he's useless in the kitchen but no one paid much attention and Emeril seemed to like Jon. Kate smacked Emeril a couple times with a spatula - Emeril was a good sport, but he didn't appear to like it much (the second time I REALLY, REALLY wanted him to grab that spatula out of her hand, smack her back and shout BAM!) The kids got to help a little with food prep and they behaved better than usual. Emeril was very patient with them. Thought it was cute when some of the younger kids went outside to play and they said they were going to make 'breakfast'. I think one of the boys said "and we're gonna cook, thank you." But then they started talking about sauces and broccoli rocks (they were playing with pebbles) so not sure what happened to 'breakfast'. There was a lot of hot food for a change for dinner - looked like all the kids cleaned their plates and loved it.

Not an exciting episode but no one cried or had a meltdown or got too nasty.

Sometimes, Paula Deen swings by my place to cook for me!

Hmmm. I've auctually had Paula Deen cook for me. LOL! She did my rehersal dinner. It was just when she was beginning to tape her show on FN.

But let's not forget, on the way to Dinsye J&K did stop in Savannah at the Lady & Sons. Nothing was shown on TV, but in the van Kate was reading a Paula Deen cookbook and Cara and Maddy had on aprons in from the Lady & Sons in a "Coming up next teaser" on that epi.

However, I seriously doubt J&K had to stand in the line that forms outside of Paula's restraunt two hours before it opens at lunch and at dinner. My husband and I go back every year for our anniversary, and we get there at three so we can get our names on the list for dinner when it opens at 5. I am a Savannah native and even I don't have that kind of clout.

drpjgoodman said...

Okay, what is the "infamous red spoon"? I've missed that one.

Whoever caught the pinned shut top at the gas station, WAY TO GO! I think there ought to be special awards for people who catch things the rest of us obviously miss. Kudos to you.

I'm feeling pretty excluded, out here in the wilds of Wyoming. NO ONE ever drops in on me. I'd so love to have Ina drop by for a bite.

For anyone else still wondering, here is a link to the water incident that another poster put on youtube and posted in the discussion thread. I am posting it here because it came up again and I still hadn't seen it, so I figured curious others hadn't yet, either.

nanasez said...

This episode from my POV

1. Kate is a bitch. She puts Jon down multiple times, playing to the camera like she's so funny each time.

2. Kate hits Emeril twice with a spatula, second time was hard on the hand. She doesn't apologize like she lying said in her interview. And the way she was so quick to smack with that spatula makes me wonder how quick she is to hit her children with objects.

3. Emeril thought onions on top the green bean casserole might be too strong for the kids. Kate: "I love onions." Kate gets onions. What kids?

4. Emeril rates the GOOD dinnerware - the kids get to eat off plastic trays instead of paper plates!

5. Poor Aaden doesn't even know what macaroni is. Is he the child who didn't know what corn on the cob was, too?

6. Emeril wonders at how Jon made it through 100 episodes. Unspoken but hanging in the air (at least in my imagination) was, "With that bitch."

7. Kate thinks shooting 100 episodes is a huge accomplishment. Why, Kate? It's not work, remember? It's just cameras following a normal family living their normal life, right? Where's the accomplishment in that?

I'll just add that all but 8 of those 100 episodes were filmed in the two years between the tups' third and fifth birthdays. That's a heck of a lot of time in front of the camera - and doesn't count photo shoots, promos for TLC, or interviews on news shows. Jon needs to look up the meaning of the word "exploitation," and PA needs to find that these children are WORKING.

Pamela Jaye said...

for the What's Next? and someone has probably already said it - I think someone is making Jon a Chopper? I just searched my listings for Jon and Kate... It must be the season of Crossovers

For the record, I only turned to TLC to check out Kate's boobs. There's something I never thought I would say in my lifetime! :)

For those of you who didn't watch - good for you. That is 30 minutes of my life I can never get back.

I feel your pain!

But I didn't watch. I watched the premier of The Closer and I'm really happy I did. You just can't beat smart writing, creative dialogue, and a talented cast.

TLC, you should try to incorporate a little of that into the schedule!

I don't watch anymore said...

First of all, IMO Emeril is a has been. I know he owns lots of restaurants and is rich, but his days of good TV marketability have come and long gone. Food Network dropped him.

Second of all, I didn't watch -- haven't watched all season nor the green episode. Not hard at all. Actually, I can't imagine why anyone would watch and that is just my opinion.

Third, I believe the ratings are exaggerated. When I tried to look up the ratings for last week I even saw some articles stating the reported ratings numbers for them are in question. There is just no way that many people could be interested in watching them.

Abbey said...

Most boring episode ever!

Lynnie said...

Just Jared:
Self-proclaimed fashionista Kate Gosselin stops to get gas for her car on Monday morning (June 8) in Reading, Penn.

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

From the pictures on that site, it looks like she's at the Sunoco on Van Reed Road in Wyomissing near Giant Foods. It's in the same shopping center as Austin's Restaurant (where Jon took the kids for dinner the other day).

Jon and Kate's gigantic church is right next to that shopping center as well.

They don't seem to dwell very far from a select number of comfort zones when they're in town. The shopping center with Target/Party city is a left onto Broadcasting Road from Van Reed, and PetSmart is a few blocks down the road in the Wal-Mart shopping center. The Starbucks she goes to is probably the drive-thru one across the street from Wal-Mart since she probably thinks she's too good to wait in line with the riff-raff at Barnes and Noble (plus the tabloid section faces the entrance...but then again, she might actually like being recognized). XD

Can you tell I live here? :3

Personally, I think it'd be best if TLC stopped this circus. It's to the point where no matter what these two knuckleheads say about "doing it for the kids", it's fairly obvious that they're in it for themselves.

katzmeow said...

I haven't watched J&K for over a year now, but enjoy reading the posts here and on Musing. Early on Kate (and Jon because of his passivity) got on my last nerve and I decided there were better things in life than watching this greedy, disfunctional couple. TLC is committing fraud here by showing a family together when we all know the opposite is true. TLC needs to add a disclaimer to the shows stating the date(s) the episode was actually taped. This show with Emeril was obviously shot before their problems became public (and I believe the problems have been around for a long, long time). Of course, TLC (The Lying Channel) will never commit to an act of honesty.

joyhawk said...

I hope this was just edited to LOOK like Kate drank in front of a thirsty Mady! But then, why would Mady say, "you're really really mean! You drank it right in front of my face!"

Kate thinks shooting 100 episodes is a huge accomplishment. Why, Kate?

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

I wasn't as excited for Kate as Kate was...but for any show--100 shows is an accomplishment....

...to remain on the air long enough to achieve that many.

But I will be honest and say with as many episodes as they have per year-they achieved that honor rather forceably and quickly.

Most "average" run of the mill episodes will take anywhere from 4-6 years to achieve that privilege.

I think that Kate got her boob job when she was in California. We all know that Beverly Hills is full of boob doctors. Maybe we will be seeing Kate on Dr. 90210.

SuzanneDeAZ said...

.wow, 162 remarks and I have not seen the show yet.

Money Trumps Kids said...

I was even embarrassed for the kids looking at them in those damn bibs they've worn since they were babies. OMG!!!!!!! Too, too much insanity due to Kate worrying about stains on clothes. She doesn't even do the laundry anymore. But wait! She does sell those clothes, so once again it can be traced back to the money. Money trumps kids!! Sad.

Ava said...

I didn't watch either. But didn't I say weeks and weeks ago that she had her boobs done? She had to have paid out of pocket since there is no show about them. Or maybe there will be in the future. Such is the reason for the bikini pics to show off the hardware.

Later this week, the crew will be on OCC. @@

"Wake me up when Gordon Ramsey stops by Kate's kitchen and gives her an earful" Funny stuff, set my alarm for Ramsey and Bourdain stopping by, I'll make the popcorn.

Why did she not want the camera zooming in on the food or getting too close to her?

Those icky, never-washed, gross cameras. They contaminate the air, you know. It might get into the food. :)

Gliznorph said...

Not watching J&K any more. I swear that Kate must be an elder in the First Church of the Self-Absorbed.

Shannon said...

I'm proud to say I didn't watch. First show of the season I boycotted the entire way through, and honestly I didn't miss it like I thought I would. My mom also boycotted the show and said she will for the rest of the season. For her, once she realized it was all fake, she didn't care anymore. Just for reference, apparently there are people like her who really did think the Christmas and birthday shows were really from these events. My mom was shocked when I told her the shows are taped days or weeks before or after the real event. Even to someone who used to be a diehard fan like her, it's becoming more and more apparent that the Gosselin family is falling apart due to greed.

Doesn't sound like we missed anything, but then again, I don't see how bringing in another celebrity every week is going to save the show.

What's next? Bringing in one of the couples from The Bachelor to teach Jon and Kate how to fake a relationship for the camera?

EZBurns said...

Gordon Ramsey of Kithcen Nightmares wasn't available?

SuzanneDeAZ said...

They calim the reason why Emmerial visited them was because they met him once in an elevator and Emmerial saided he wanted to come to their house and fix them a meal so he can hae the privledge to eat with them.

Hater said...

Bad Dream #1: Because of the Humane society looking into the complaints about the dogs, I foresee an episode devoted to teaching the kids about animal safety with (insert Guest Star).

Bad Dream #2: Rumors are that Kate is doing a new Healthy Kids type show somehow connected to Kelly Ripa?? Probably why she is seen being much nicer and more patient with the kids, especially the boys.
I hear she is going back on tour in September when school starts to kick off her healthy kids agenda.

jayley said...

It's so strange that Kate thinks she's so funny and witty and cute. She's a pathetic fame whore. What makes her a bigger joke is that she doesn't even realize people are laughing at her.

Can't See Sheep said...

I am so sorry guys, I'm really sorry. It's long.
Annie said...
Why not Anthony Bourdain? I'd pay money to watch he and Kate go a few rounds. Of course Steve might get jealous, being Anthony has money and all

MissBailey said...
Honestly, who I would love to see "pop in" on the Gosselins would be Anthony Bourdain or Martha Stewart, I think both of them would scare Kate and not take any garbage....Oh well, a gal can dream".....LOL

Deb said...
it's so funny to see Kate around celebrities. Of course she was totally ignorant around the Renovation Nation guy, but she wants her own show (possibly cooking? like another Rachel Ray), so she's REALLY kissing up to Emeril.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Holy Hooker heels peeps! Either great minds think alike or fool's seldom differ tonight! I saw Emeril & thought man I'd pay to see Anthony Bourdain on K8, he'd carve her a new one & I'd pay top dollar to be in the front row watching. I can see him out back smoking, persuading the kids and the dogs to make a break for it. Let him show Kate what true good, cutting sarcasm sounds like. I'm sure he'd be more than happy to do so, but then he'd probably rather be in some little known country eating dirt, than make an appearance on this one trick pony of a show, actually he'd probably rather visit Romania again. No one interesting like him will be caught dead with these people, I believe it's called class, or not selling your soul. This is one show he'd have every reservation about doing & we wouldn't be able to bribe him with all the armadillo in Uruguay.

Why does nobody hit Kate? i'm thinking this would surprise her, possibly stun her into silence, I'm guessing some would pay top dollar to do it. A new Japanese game show, kind of like 'wack a mole', "Shame the Shrew" sorry, can't translate it into Japanese for everyone.

Oh man, Martha stewart, the food Nazi. so many interesting scenerios it boggles the mind. She can tell K8 all about what it'd be like for her to go to jail for fraud, oh that's right they're called love offereings.

Deb, I don't think it's just about getting a cooking show as Emeril, probably has more money than Steve from the green show and probably more money than K8. She likely kisses up to anyone who has more cash than she does because they're richer than she & as you pointed out they may be able to do something for her in the future, plastic surgery, cars, cooking show, talk show, etc and so on.

BettyBoop said...
If it's not look at this freaky family of 18 kids, or sextuplets then it's the tree man, the half ton teen, mermaid girl, the co-joined twins. If they presented the topics with grace and compassion that would be one thing but they seem smarmy and sensationalist.

Sham Fam said...
I read some where recently that the children were asked by Kate, something along these lines; "Do you want to work in the 'family business' or would you rather mommy and daddy work like other parents and you go to day care?"

Kate IS 34, right? said...
How come on Justjared Kate is now referred to as 33 instead of her actual age of 34?
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I've been noticing what BettyBoop is pointing out about TLC, it's like it's turned into the freak shows that used to be in carnivals. Anything people would think out of the ordinary and it becomes a show on TLC. I mean what have they taught us so far, have a litter, a weird growth, unusual stature, odd malady and you too can appear on the channel. There you go, we just have to figure the right angle and we can get the moderators from this blog to have their own show on there back to back with K8 likely. y'know the ratings. It's the only way to put a nail in this show's coffin, so someone on this blog get a weird illness or something, get on TLC & at knock this show off the air.

Sham Fam I laughed when I read your post, I can see it. What is she going to do if they don't want in, rub them out, have them wacked? What is she the PA mafia now? Oh no a Cake Boss cross over! The family business, please, what family business? I see a talent wasteland, ...no, talent black hole. yes not only do they not have talent, they suck all the talent out of anyone venturing onto their little patch of hell come to earth estate, also known as the 8th level from hell that that soul sucking shrew of a succubus rules from. she has to have somewhere to stash the souls of those she drains as they watch her show. Give her the damn cook show or talk show, hell give her both as long as she stops this one with the kids, because one the kids are gone her show will only last a month then she'll be off the TV for good, on her own she's certainly not as riveting as watching paint dry.

About K8 age, my guess is she's shallow enough to pay people to get it wrong as long as it's younger, not older. mind you it'd be kind of funny to see her reaction to reading "Kate Gosselin 94" or something along those lines in the largest font possible that is still readable.

I know this is long, but i've got to get this rant out of me.

A leather bikini, I mean honestly!

The guy from OCC come over and she wants a pink scooter, oh come on! A time in your life when you can get something seriously cool and she gets a pink scooter! I feel like Lucy screaming at Charlie Brown, Kate you blockhead! shouldn't the kids at least get those little tiny bikes & cars the shriners ride around in the parades from the OCC guys? a t-shirt saying "the guys from OCC visited and all my mom got was A STUPID PINK SCOOTER!" Or moped or whatever you want to call it. I mean jeez if you're going to be slimy enough to exploit your kids at least get a worth while freebie. Yeah, this is going to bug me for awhile. :-)


And the water, holy smokes, denying your kid water on camera, drinking it & rubbing it in??!! Isn't that some form of child abuse of at least a red flag that someone should be responding to? 100 shows in how many too few years? Oh no, they're not working, heck there are kids in sweatshops who have longer holidays than these children. And yet I wonder is K8 paying off officials or has she been?

Okay I think I'm good now, phew!

A-nony-mous said...

This show has officially Jumped The Shark.

Stunt casting is one of the signs of Shark Jumping.

First it was Ace of Cakes, then Emeril, next week American Chopper.

Yep, jumped the shark.

The only good part of the episode was the little montage they did at the end.

AllieK said...

This is obviously the last season. They are STRUGGLING hard for episode ideas. Absolute snore fest. Kate's just tugging at TLC's udders for a few more dollars. My money is on her future spaz out. Brittany Spears style. Complete with a shaved head and everything.

SaNdY said...

jill said...

Kate is SO thin!

My sister is on tv. When she started she was a size six and looked VERY chubby. She had to drop to a size 2 (5'7") to look normal on tv.

I bet Kate is a size 4. I know she had a tummy tuck...but she must eat nothing and workout all of the time...

Plus, it never hurts to be in love/lust! ;)


The only thing is I think she's giving those kids eating issues due to her wish to be thin -- I read that those kids got a piece of turkey but no bread for lunch. I always wondered about those foods she'd give to some and not others right in front of them and announce how they are special treats. I can see her berating the girls if they eat a cookie and her getting all you're fat, you'll never be anyone fat, blah de blah. She seems the type.
Her chewing on her salad on some clip when the kids run in and she makes a horrid face like how dare those brats interrupt me! I wanted to push her face in her bowl of rabbit food. I'd usually say about a skinny bitch that perhaps if they'd eat they'd not be such nasty people but with Kate can't really blame the dieting crap for her crappy attitude. What good is a size 00 body if no one can stand to be around you. Yes, Kate will be fulfilled spending hours admiring her bony clavicles and twiggy arms but when the only thing she has to hug in bed is the pillow, frankly, even if Steve or the personal trainer is getting a little something from Katie, it's not going to last as she has shown us all over and over she would rather discard people then invest as much effort in relationships as she does getting her bikini body and flock of seagull don't.

Not an exciting episode but no one cried or had a meltdown or got too nasty.
Well, since they are already reporting the smacking of Emeril with the spatula or her infamous red spoon I'd call that too nasty, who the red devil thinks it's ever okay to physically assault a guest and cackle about it like it's cute. One day, just one day she's going to pull that crap on the wrong person and get it back ten-fold. If I was her mom I'd be crawling under a rock or leave the town and change my name. What an embarrassment to have people know you are related to such a vile freak.

Just saying said...

Dee,

I know what you're talking about. I didn't find the episode that objectionable either. It left me thinking that Kate has those qualities that make TV producer types not mind the trouble it must be to work with her. She gives them plenty to work with and she's clearly very comfortable with the camera. By the time Kathie Lee left her show with Regis, she had very high negatives. She still has high negatives with her return to television on Today. There are probably three times as many anti-Rachel Ray blogs as there are anti-Kon blogs. (I hear they call her recipes, messipes.)

I don't think she's going anywhere; let's just hope her angle is to come up with a show that moves the kids to the background. Next year, the tups are in school full time and the new show can be about how she adjusts to the changes. I can see the promo now: "Well, the kids are in school full time and Jon's working a job outside the home (wink, wink) so now it's Just Kate. Now that even folks like David Letterman and Jay Leno know her name and recognize her in a bikini, she can get signed to all sorts of media deals.

KateDebate said...

Has there been a discussion on here about Kate likely being a misandrist (one who hates the male sex). The more I see her relate to Jon and the boys (and construction workers, and movers, and...), the more it seems like she'd rather they not exist, all they do is cause trouble, get in her way, and make a mess of things.

Unless they are there to do her bidding, in which case they are accepted if they are a) a celebrity, b) not allowed to talk to her.

Deirdrea said...

Are they gonna do 50something episodes of Jon and Kate plus every guest they can get from every other TLC/Discovery show so that the 2 of them never have to actually be with just the kids?

BettyBoop said...

joyhawk said...

I hope this was just edited to LOOK like Kate drank in front of a thirsty Mady! But then, why would Mady say, "you're really really mean! You drank it right in front of my face!"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fNgxtuaQ4Lc

No, it's one hundred percent classic Kate . She pulls that sort of stunt with those kids all the time from the little I watched way back when. Anything to make their lives suck and give her the feeling of power. That's why she spanks them too. Makes her feel big and reminds them she's got them where she wants them.
Stupid as she is she doesn't seem to realize one day the tables will turn and those kids will be bigger and she may be laid up and unable to get herself a drink. Mady will stand there with a tall cool glass of water sipping and smirking like mom taught her as she sneers, "oh, is this what you wanted." and walk away while Kate shrivels and dehydrates.
She's going to have those kids so messed up but the person she may end up hurting the most is herself. Payback is a bitch.

Shelly'sFedUp said...

Seriously that scene where she hit Emeril twice would have played out differently if I had been a writer.

Look here Biatch. You might whip that lazy husband of yours but if you ever hit me again you will be picking your shrewily azz off the ground.

Also if you look close when she made the comment about Jon peeling the garlic and she thought it was funny you could see the contempt in the look he gave her in return

InkstainedPsyche said...

ManicNarcissism said...

Jon is peeling tons of garlic they aren't using. Weird.

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

Not really. I think if you listen closely you hear Emeril (or is it the assistant? I'll have to go back and watch that part again)that you take the garlic and put it in olive oil and then you store it (I'm assuming it's the fridge 'cause that would be the only safe place for it)so you can take it out and use it as needed.

Did they use some of the garlic in the chili mac they were making?

Aeris said...

Wow, I'm really happy to see how many of us did not watch tonight. I didn't watch, either, and I have not watched a minute of TLC for at least a week. Keep it up everyone!

WPA said...

Emeril sold his brand/TV business to Martha Stewart in 2008?. Food Network put his "live" cooking show on in the morning instead of around dinner time. As far as I can tell, he still makes new shows for the Food Network and makes new shows on a network that Martha uses. Or the new shows air first on Martha's network then they air on the Food Network. Emeril still owns his restaurants.

Kate asked Emeril if he would come back every week to cook for them. He said he would love to and hoped it was before their next 100th show. Let's see if they last that long. If he has a new restaurant in the area, then maybe he will be back.

The couch scenes were done separately and later than the shooting as someone pointed out - Kate has a different hair color on the couch.

One of the boys was getting something (toys?) out of a coat? to show to his brother. They asked the camera guys to not "look" several times. The camera kept rolling. The boys seemed to want some private time.

The camera showed two girls kicking and pounding the bathroom door when Kate told the kids to wash their hands. Another kid was inside and eventually opened the door.

The boys had on "GAP" sweatshirts. Is this a product placement? I notice they frequently wear GAP clothes. The girls were all in matchy clothes.

The segment previews showed one 'tup girl saying "Bam" -and Kate told Emeril he hadn't said "Bam" yet. At the end, Emeril said "Bam" again and one 'tup girl said he was "funny". How unnatural was that?

We've made a version of chili mac for years, without the hot spices. What is so great about that recipe to have Emeril present it as a specialty? And Kate never heard of the recipe? Unbelievable.

lindahoyt said...

I have to tell you I babysat my 2 year old niece today, she is two. She at breakfast, lunch and snacks, WITHOUT a bib...and WITHOUT a highchair, at a regular table. She didn't get a drop on her nice "Carters" sunflower sun dress!

She also knew all her colors, almost drew a square, after anouncing that she was going to draw one; knew what an "R" was and knew all her shapes and colors. She can say and identify macaroni.

Angela said...

I like how Emeril tried to defend Jon by telling Kate to leave him alone, only to be slapped with a spatula. Yeah, Kate that's how you treat house guests. Kate was really playing it up for the cameras tonight. She didn't even try to hide the fakeness.

Sue said...

The show tonight was as exciting as watching paint dry.
