I am on Twitter and have been following Arngrim & MelissaEGilbert ... Arngrim is (nellie olsen on Little House on the Prairie).. she is the president of "protect.org" ... Both her and Melissa Gilbert are speaking out about the exploitation of the Gosselins, etc. :)

I have been watching the new six pack they have on WETV...
I realize that anyone with a liter wants to be in the public so that we pay to raise their kids....must be nice!!
I will give Kon one thing..I am sure it is alot of work to raise 8 kids..but I have never seen the queen do any...oh I guess if bitching is work..Damn she works hard!! Jon has done alot on camera and off... I feel sorry for him..I think the press should be trying to get a photo of him shopping for a pair of gonades!
I still think this is all PR BS!!! I think it could have backfired on them somewhat but they don't care...as long as freebies are coming!
What disturbs me is that the press (justjared)makes a point of saying the Queen did not make an appearance until 2pm yesterday! So the nanny does it all!!!
But when she comes out and flashes her crotch shot with her boobs out...she is doing this so her kids can document their youth? Didn't she say that is why they film?? What mom wears a g-string with a short dress? I guess it could be worse...no bikini waxing!

So who sent the witch flowers...PR Team.. or her screwguard? Notice he has been kept out of the TLC photos~!!!

Momof2 said...

I bet that's why you see the cops there today....it's like she got mad because they got a pic of her panties so the next day you see the cops...um yea....so she can call the paps and they can take pics only if they show her in a positive light. Otherwise they call in the cops.

I am SO glad that Penn. officer spoke out against the Gosselin family.

lukebandit said...

remember the picture of kate when she was trying to put up the bouncy thingy for her kids on the 10th wedding anniversary show? she was putting her hand up at either shoka or nala and would we love to see one of them chew her up and spit her out! but if that was to happen, she would demand that BOTH DOGS BE PUT DOWN! can you imagine the furor over that??

TLC taping an episode for j and k p 8's 10th wedding anniversary is a crying fraud shame. they are telling everyone and the KIDS that they are together, when they clearly are NOT TOGETHER.

how much longer is this train wreck going to crash?
one of the boys on the water video on the far right bottom looks so bad. he looks exhausted.
kate, all you had to say was stop taping or wait just 2 minutes to get the kids something to drink.
that is the norm in show business. no big whoop. you are a cruel nut.
jon saying that crack about girls being his friends, that was a big SNAP to kate.
jon should of grabbed Kate at the Crayola factory when she started about the markers and when she made the comment about the dogs or he'd be in big trouble:
grabbed kate and took her aside, let the camera's roll!
jon to kate: if you don't shut your b******g about the markers and don't let them ALL use them right now, i am going to go to TLC and tell them it is over for me and the kids. if you want your own show that is fine, but not with any of the kids. make a decision: NOW! if she would of said no, jon should turn around and say ok kids, mommy said you could draw with the makers. and hand them out. what would she do? let her have her meltdown. it would give you more ammo in court to get full custody.
jon wear a helmet because of your kids.
i know the guys from OCC regret doing the show now. i know i sent them a big email no! no!

Tracy said...

oops.. should say she was on the board of directors.. she is not the president.

K8 ain't GR8 said...

Kate has no friends and looks so completely miserable surrounded by her own children.

She's always on her stupid telephone instead of playing with them.

She's probably texting herself to make it look like somebody is actually communicating with her.

Elle Rose said...

a rose is a rose said...

I thought of something. Since there
are SO many photos of Kate's underware being flashed,do you think she actually KNOWS that she's
being photographed by the Paps, and
it her was of saying "this is what I think of you!"
Its no different then someone holding up their middle finger.
Just a thought, because there is shot after shot, not just one.



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

Yes, I am quite sure that she is VERY aware of the shots being taken, and loves the exposure (so to speak). She is not an intelligent woman by any stretch of the imagination, but seems to have a certain animal cunning. This is STRICTLY conjecture- but I have always perceived her as the type of woman to use sex (or the suggestion of sex) as a manipulative tool. I doubt Jon had gotten any from her in ages, by the way. She strikes me as the frigid type who gets off on control and domination, not "icky" sex. Again, all complete speculation on my part. I just know the type, unfortunately. She is spreading her legs, sucking her popsicle, and revealing her boobs on purpose, I'd bet the ranch on it. Unfortunately, certain tabloids insist on calling her "sexy", or "gorgeous", etc, and I do believe she is lapping it up and having the time of her life.

KaitiebugandBrayBray'smommy said...

I think the water bottle in today's shots are because of the watergate stuff. She would be that much of a witch to say look nope didn't give Mady water and still drinking it, hahaha.

NT said...

Are there pics of her getting flowers? And why was that cop there?

Ugly is as Ugly does said...

Why do these children play in the driveway and in the garage area if they don't want pictures taken of them? Doesn't make sense. We've all seen the plane-taken pictures of the place and we know there is a very nice backyard (to say the least). So here is Mrs. Thing parading around in different dresses knowing full well pictures are being taken. She is showing both her bottom and her nips in some of the pictures. WTF is the matter with her? It doesn't make sense to me at all.

Her parents must be really, really embarassed by the life she is leading. Sometimes nice people give birth to a sociopath, one out of four, and don't have a clue what happened to that one, and I think this is probably true of Kate Kreider G.

Just Jared puts titles like "pretty in pink" on the pictures and "pretty at petsmart". I don't see anything pretty about this woman from the dead porcupine on her head to her chubby, stumpy fake orange tan legs. Those lines between her eyes tell the story and if we can't read that meanness then all we have to do is look at the faces of those poor kids.

I think Collin and Cara (and possibly Aaden) have checked out. He rocks, Cara holds it in and Aaden is apparently so fearful of everything that they can't develop normally. Shame on these parents. The kids are wonderful, but for how much longer?

BarbMae said...

I have never seen such sadder looking children. Those poor kids. Look hot, tired, and very unhappy being filmed. The only happy looking one is Hannah who Mommy caters to and shows attention to. It isn't even that hot yet. PA gets pretty much the same weather Ohio gets and it has at the highest mid-70s. Beautiful weather to enjoy if you are a kid. Yes those PR photos of Kate "helping" put up the bouncy equipment... yeah right... why wear a dress so your hiney can be seen and your boobies practically fall out bending over. I am still so disgusted I just wish they would stop filming. Oh yeah, now she is correcting the dogs, Nala... take a look at Shoka.... he has that disgusted male look that Jon gives her so he obiviously isn't fooled....He thinks she is a nag too. He! He! I'm glad Jon is away, but I'm sad for the kids cause they are happier w/him cause they don't get filmed. If what is being photographed is the upcoming season, I'm glad I quit watching. On Monday I will be 5 weeks TLC free....

jen said...

I don't understand how this show is even on still, clearly they are no longer a normal family. Yet, TLC is still selling them as such. "Look how normal the Gosselins are! Just because they have 8 kids, they still do normal things!"

No, TLC, they do not. Normal families do not get to meet celebrities every single week.


I also think Kate loves being photographed by the "p people." That's why she makes the kids play out front, everyone can see them. Plus, if they play in the grass out back, their clothes will get dirty then she won't be able to resell them easily. :p

BarbMae said...

Oh and one more thing... see ya get me going on selfish Kate and I can't stop... with all her millions why can't she buy some darn decent patio furniture instead of those damn white plastic chairs. I even have decent patio furniture... and I am a single parent... They have all that acreage and the kids are limited to the driveway?? They played more in their back yard at the old house then they do now... Plus, no kid interaction w/the dogs? What kid doesn't want to play w/puppies? Again, I go outside and play w/my 10 year old dog and take him for walks.... these children are not living a normal life and I feel so bad for them. I haven't seen the pics but I guess "not-a-nanny" is being shown now. Gosh I hope someone can save these kids.... I don't even know them and I feel so bad for them... and Jon, Kate and TLC the word is EXPLOITATION......

KaitiebugandBrayBray'smommy said...

OH MY GOD!! Just read the article with quotes from the police officer. Its a dang shame! I have no words for this mess anymore.

I hope Melissa and Allison from LHOTP keep speaking out. And I've always heard they were good friends in "real life"

Dianne said...

It's such a shame what this family has become. I was just thinking about how none of the other TLC families are like this. They're all ordinary people, living respectable, normal lives, while Jon and especially Kate have become media monsters. It amazes me how Kate sheeple and Kate herself defend her behavior by saying she's a mother of 8. AND!?! Yes, it is stressful raising multiple children, but there are thousands of people who do it everyday. Look at the Dugars (or the "geeky people" as she calls them). They have 18! That's 10 more than what you have Kate! You don't see Mrs. Dugar running around, screaming and yelling at her kids and husband, acting as if she can't be bothered with them, flirting with other men, flashing her crotch, and away from her family for weeks on end for some silly "career". Her marriage is still pretty strong despite her having 18 children. She's not writing books, selling her kids, and going around trying to convince everyone that she's super mom. It's really sad to see what type of person she has become and that her family has to suffer for it. Yes, Jon has his faults and he has made some wrong choices, but Kate is the true ring leader behind this fiasco. Jon wanted to end the show last season, but of course Kate said no and now look what has happen. Her family has fallen completely apart and what does she do...continue the show and the "book tours". Kate says she always puts her family first and everything she does is for them. Okay, the show is bringing in money but what else is it doing? Money isn't EVERYTHING! It doesn't replace a wife/mother's love. It doesn't bring a family back together. What will she do when the spotlight goes out (and it will)? She doesn't have friends or close family, she has no relationship with her husband, and she's no longer close to her kids, so what will she do? Kate needs a really, REALLY good reality check. She claims that the "haters" keep her where she needs to be, but obviously they don't. Something needs to happen (I don't mean anything bad to the kids or Jon) but something that will bring her back down to earth and make her realize what she has become.

just wondering said...

kelly said...
The bad behavior that Jon is being accused of with the babysitter is this: One night, while on a TLC trip he took off leaving Cara alone with a baby sitter at the Grand Summmit Hotel. He left at 6pm and didn't come back until 3am reeking of booze and completely wasted. The worst part is he assumed the babysitter was free. She left without a cent.

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

Is this when he took Cara to Park City? And he didn't even check with the girl to see if she had been paid up front? Did he ever pay her?

Payson48 said...

She says she DOES EVERYTHING for her kids......sure looks depressed while doing it. The childeren look sad also....what a great day!! Hope Jon is having a better day than these people. Very sad. Maybe Kate and Steve should go out on tour again so Jon can come home. The children are happier with him and he pays attention to them, unlike Kate. Why does she hold her hands like that in front of her? My grandmother did that also-looks toooooo old for a 34 yr. old.

police officer comments

"... most of us in the department feel that Governor Rendell is personally exploiting The Gosselins as a sideshow circus just as The Gosselins are expoliting their children ...


will this affect the investigation?

erin said...

Enough: I really don't think the underwear shot was intentional. And it is hard to tell from the picture what kind of underwear she is wearing (i.e. we don't know if it is a g-string). Also, has no one else gone into their yard without a bra on? I'm not sure that is all that scandalous, more thoughtless. Besides, I think she is wearing a bra, just maybe not a supportive bra (there appears to be a line in the middle, which would result from a bra that is too tight in the cups giving you a "four boob" effect).

I'm always a little amazed at the vitriol over her wardrobe. The shoes she wears are hardly stripper shoes--the white and black wedges (while not the cutest shoes) were from Cole Haan's spring collection. I really don't see anything wrong with the way she dresses. I think it is odd to criticize her dressing. If she is called a slut for what she wears I'm glad we aren't able to see each other--you all would think I am the Whore of Babylon.

Oh come on. It's not exactly unusual to see someone drinking water on what appears to be a hot day outside. People read way too much into every little thing the woman does.

Folks, THE CHAIR has entered the building:

I think THE CHAIR should be made DListed's Hot Slut of the Day. How funny is it that I was driving by a house with a chair just like that sitting on the curb waiting to be tossed and thought, "Too bad Kate isn't here to get it before it's trashed!"

Oh, you bet. This "investigation" is probably sitting next to file 13( the trash can ), with an alreday predetermined outcome ( and payoff by TLC ) that there has been no wrongdoing. This is only being done to pacify the naysayers and to hopefully shut them up.

But I think if they come back with a "no wrongdoing" statement, it's going to fire up a lot of people even more than ever.

Momof2 said...

Kate is such a narcissist I'm sure she get's off on reading what others say about her "exposing" herself.

I think Kate has a terrible PR person outside of TLC who is pumping her up, lying to her about her "fans" and giving her really bad advice and she is so full of herself that she is falling for all of it.

kaitlinsnana said...

Every time I think Kate's pictures couldn't get worse, THEY DO.

I just looked at the most recent pictures. Kate just looks like a five-dollar whore. She needs a mental evaluation.

Doesn't she realize that her children will one day find the crotch shots and exposed breast pictures taped to their lockers.

So sad.

I beg to differ. I live in Berks County and I would love it if only got to mid-70's in the summer. There are certainly days like that, but we also get heat waves that leave us in the high 90's-the kinds of days when you can't even go outside.

Thanks for the Wernersville P.O. link. The more things like this that come out, the more pressure there is to end this circus.

'Jon & Kate Plus 8': Gosselin family

fan backlash picks up steam


At this point the only people worth feeling sorry for out of the whole "Jon & Kate Plus 8" affair is the children. Despite a crash course in how the media can turn on you, neither Jon nor Kate Gosselin has done anything to present themselves in a better light. The show's fans are taking notice and aren't liking what they see.

The ratings: The show started its fifth season over the Memorial Day weekend with a record-breaking 9.8 million people tuning in to watch how the family-friendly show handled the crumbling marriage. A week later only 5.7 million people watched.


Some say this proves that people have lost interest in the Gosselin Circus ....

J said...

Dianne said that we don't see the mom's in other TLC shows acting this way. But Kate's not the only one who gets criticized. I do recall that Amy Roloff often mentions viewers who email and comment on her messy house. I always felt bad for her because I imagine it takes her three times as long and every bit as many trips up and down stairs to keep things tidy. I'm 5'4" and it's hard for me to carry things that come up to hip level. If she's like me, she doesn't want to spend her day nagging or even reminding her kids to pick up, especially in front of cameras. It's just not a priority for her. I think in Kate's case, either she doesn't care or after 3 or 4 years of doing the show, she figured out that no matter what you do, someone is going to be unhappy so you just start doing what you want and let the critics be damned.

The pic of her getting the flowers was on the front page of dlisted.com yesterday attached to a Gosselin anniversary article.

Catherine said...

Did you see the pink panties shot on DListed? (may be a thong, since there wasn't much pink matierial on the backside of her other crotch shots on Jared)

I'm sorry, but if I knew paps were taking long range pictures or even just knowing TLC guys are around and my own kids, I wouldn't plop down on the ground in my little dress just letting it all hang out. Close your legs woman.

relievedtoseethis said...

from Arngrim (Nellie Olsen)on twitter-
I am on the Board of Directors of PROTECT.org that fights for child protection legislation nationwide. I have served on the Screen Actors Guild Young Performers Committee to protect the rights of children in TV & Film.

Her conversations with Melissa Gilbert (Little House on the Paririe are really interesting.

"Have you read Melissa's book? How did having a life totally orchestrated for maximum publicity & TV coverage work for her? Vicodin, anyone?"

"There are laws about how long you can keep an infant under hot lights, etc. We fought hard for those & these reality shows ignore them all."

" jon and k8, They need to work to support their family - They're very rich now & in violation of every child labor law in the U.S."

I am glad these people, who WERE child stars, are FINALLY speaking out!

Hopefully it will work. best than

HolyMoly said...

Stay classy, Kate

I'm not sure, but I think these are some different shots of Kate's underwear. Come on, her TLC camera man was filming. She KNEW the paps were over there with long lens, you can tell by little things happening in response to things said in various blogs.
Like the white chair today, making sure she is seen drinking out of the water bottle, kids have their old juicy juice stand by. (Mady seems puzzled like what is Mother doing now?) Hey, why doesn't Kate send the babysitter out to watch the kids like she used to do ALL the time?
Personally, I think she should lay on the lawn in her bikini like DeDe did and let the paps take pictures, you know get it over with....because it is weighing on her....Kate's gone Britney.

I'm not sure how many other hockey fans are on this board, but I wonder how long it will take for either the Pittsburgh Penguins or the Hershey Bears to show up on the show with their respective championship trophies. I can just see the boys oohing and aahing over the players and the trophies while Kate attempts to flirt with them. *sigh*

readerlady said...

I beg to differ on the weather too. I live in Central Ohio, and we are notorious for having 90+ temps with 90% or higher humidity. You walk out the door and it takes your breath it's so bad. Not fun for anyone.

Interesting that Melissa Gilbert and Alison Arngrim are speaking out now. They both grew up on camera, so they certainly know what they are talking about. I hope more former child stars get involved in this. They can provide a prospective that we can only speculate about.

On TLC website in the photo album for J&K + bikes there is now a photo of Jon on his bike wearing a leather jacket and what is this a HELMET. ANd they know nothing about this site don't read it, nada, my foot. Good to see him wear a helmet though.

ok, I am not an idiot here...Radaronline's photos are so definitely staged for all to see. Who can get so close as to see flowers being delivered?

Come on...give me a break.

fidosmommy said...

Amy Roloff has said numerous times that she wished she could have a clean house. She has tried numerous times to get the family members to pick up after themselves. She has also indicated numerous times that her life is about her kids, not about a clean house. She is a wife and mom first, a teacher and soccer coach second, and a housekeeper last. Give me Amy Roloff's messy house any day of the week over the
sterile, cold environment over there in Wernersville PA.

MayDay said...

In the pink dress pictures the one with Cara, Mady, Alexis, Collin and
Joel in it. You can see how much taller and older looking Cara is than Mady. Cara now looks her spot in the family, the oldest child. Cara looks about 10 where Mady still looks about 8. Anyways, they all looked sad.

Midwest Mom said...

The photos of Kate on justjared from her anniversary (minus Jon) show her smiling ear to ear.

I don't understand.

Her marriage has fallen apart. Why doesn't she seem more upset?

I'd be crying uncontrollably if my husband of 10 years was spending our anniversary with his girlfriend.

I guess she's not upset because she never loved Jon to begin with.

Nope. She just has a new man in her life. Easier to move on when there is already someone there waiting.

cdnmom47 said...

Perhaps someone knows this....

I know that early on at their speaking engagements, they were passing the hat for 'love offerings'. Since they started charging the ridiculously high fees for speaking are they STILL accepting these 'love offerings?'

People are still mentioning them so I was just wondering if it was a practice that they still used to 'make' money.

Allicat said...

Kate was at a local restaurant recently with a girl "friend." Their bill was $31.00 and Kate left a $3.00 tip!

I also heard from a good source that Jon and Didi are no longer an item. She apparently found out what a jerk he is.

I live in Berks county and I find it hard to believe that any traffic congestion is due to this family. They live in a remote area and any time I have had to travel on that road, there were no other cars around. My friend lives right around the corner from the Gosselins and she has only ever had the paps in front of her house one time. She sees them around, but not in a way that they are causing issues.

Kate has been spotted at various locations by herself lately and the paps do wait for her outside the stores. She is causing some unusual happenings in this area, but I really don't see a higher congestion of traffic. We always have congestion around here.

Taryn said...

I 100% believe she was madly in love with Jon before or maybe even after they got married for awhile. Those home movies were as real as they get and you couldn't fake that affection.

Sure, marital bliss wears off a bit after awhile, but something else happened. I heard kids can put a strain on marriage and that many has got to be a big burden.

But Kate's problem seems to be anger issues. Deep seated ones. And I think her split with her family has a lot to do with it. I'm not detached from my family, but I have a lot of internal anger towards my mother. The difference is that I never show it outwardly except to my husband and therapist. Kate lets it air out to the world.

Just a hypothesis...

A woman that is a 'dick tea***' narcassistic fame whore who knows darn well that wearing a low cut 'baby doll' dress, while performing the above mentioned activities, greatly increases the potential for HER T & A showing up on the internet.

I am almost positive it was the cutting room floor episode. I hope thats it and I hope it helps. I have always thought the reason they didn't go any further was because you here the agent tell Kate "That's enough mom if we are going to do this it's going to be my way."
WE all know how Kate must have taken that.

jen said...

In regards to Kate's biggest fan, her blog always mentions that she talks to the editors of all these magazines and TV producers and "big wigs" who are involved with J&K, is this true or is she just making things up? The reason I ask is that J&K should really look into how nutty some of their fans are, imagining scenarios in which they are speaking to editors of People Magazine on Kate's behalf? I'd be scared and want to retreat from the spotlight. Yet they seem to embrace the "p people" even more? This whole situation just seems so ridiculous and TLC is going to end up losing so much credibility if they don't cut ties soon.

Cara is much taller then Mady, when I first saw them a Berkshire Mall about 2 weeks ago,I looked at them twice before I realized it was them.BTW they do have the hair in their face alot.

The photos of Kate on justjared from her anniversary (minus Jon) show her smiling ear to ear.

I don't understand.

Her marriage has fallen apart. Why doesn't she seem more upset?

I'd be crying uncontrollably if my husband of 10 years was spending our anniversary with his girlfriend.

I guess she's not upset because she never loved Jon to begin with.


Where is it said that Jon is with any girl? The rest of the stuff happened in Feb. and March. He was pictured talking to the older lady and her daughter who got her husband to give Kate her FREE tummy tuck. I'm wondering if he didn't do the follow up breast work Kate asked about since the timing of Kate's bikini pics and Jon being seen in tabloids with the Glassman women was just more advertisements for Dr. Glassman. Kate is proud of those puppies and I don't mean the GSDs!

Jon would be SMART to lay low, personally I hope he takes the time to go to counseling. It will help the children, him and will force a change in Kate. When others change in the family, the controller has no choice but to change their self.

I figured she sent the flowers to herself...or TLC did.. will look good either way on the show...it will either be played she got flowers for something else, or that jon sent them due to working on the marriage. They can play it many ways.

As I was looking through a magazine that featured Kate in her orange bikini my 86 year old grandmother peeked over my shoulder and said in Spanish
"Como ha cambiado...No tiene verguienza" Which translates
How she has changed...She has no shame. My grandmother is a very wise person.

Huh said...

From the Pennsylnania Conservative blog:

"We have been increasing patrols in the area as paparazzi continue to infest, and worse yet these paparazzi insist that Kate Gosselin personally gave them permission to be there to photograph her."

*****

I could easily believe Kate is the one calling the paps and arranging the photos of her. Why else is she doing everything in the front yard?? She wants to be in the media constantly. It reminds me of back when Britney would mindlessly get Starbucks and constantly pump her gas just so the paps could take her pics instead of just sending an assistant to do it. If Kate really wanted to avoid the paps and media, she could easily do so. She thrives on the attention.

This is why I call BS on Kate supposedly hating the papparazi attention and attention from fans. When she's parading all the kids around, like at Party City, she has them all in matching outfits and it just really makes them stand out. If the kids were all in random outfits, I bet it wouldn't be so immediately obvious that it's the Gosslins. Why do this if you don't want people to notice you?

You know I've noticed since the paps have photographed the kids so much lately since Katie makes sure they are available to be photographed...that the kids don't as many clothes as I thought. They seem to be wearing a lot of the same clothes over and over more so than I would have thought. Yet, Kate always seem have new dresses in every color.
Maybe that is true what they said about Gymboree taking away Kate's unlimited charging spree for over-use. Now there is an idea for a show....the kids get a shopping trip and they get to go. Money is spent on them and not mom or dad. What brand was that Kate said she designed, it was (the end of her book tour) for Wal-Mart? lol
Has anyone heard anything about the whereabouts of Mr. Gray?

Can anyone please help me find an episode. I have searched titles and descriptions without success. Am looking for the one when twins go to see a talent agent. It must be hidden inside another title. It is not the one when twins get professional pics taken.

Any knowledge, please post.

Blessings,

Many thanks.


I am almost positive it was the cutting room floor episode. I hope thats it and I hope it helps. I have always thought the reason they didn't go any further was because you here the agent tell Kate "That's enough mom if we are going to do this it's going to be my way."
WE all know how Kate must have taken that.
***********************************
I watched this clip of Mady and Cara at the talent agency on YouTube, I recall seeing it a couple times...it's really interesting to me because it was a earlier episode (the twins were 6 years old) and KatiebugandBrayBray'smommy, (good detective work!) you are so right, that agent really put Kate in her place!!! When the agent was talking to the twins, Kate told them to speak up, Mady loudly says, 'Mommy, stop it!' and the agent (Bless her heart!) looks at the camera and says, 'I'll handle this, if we do it, I handle it!' And Kate actually shut up! This agent does not take any BS from parents, she must have tons of experience in dealing with them! I really wonder what she thinks about the Gosselins, then and now! Where is she when we need her??

Piper said...

I have had enough of reality TV. So many channels and so little quality on TV! Now TLC is looking for couples struggling to make it and want to try one last ditch effort. Could Jon & Kate be their first couple??? Or, maybe they will just visit this new show for a little counseling. "Marriage Boot Camp" is coming to a TLC channel on your TV soon!!

www.marriagebootcamp.com

A good time will be had by all.

KaitiebugandBrayBray'smommy said...

We've talked a little about the talent agent and something that has been bothering me, if Kate was in to it enough to do it then, why did she stop? If she had enough time to visit the agent, why couldn't she go on auditions? It was before book tours and all that jazz got big so what's the deal? Did TLC make her stop? Mady wanted to do it ( you can see it), or did they sign a contract before realizing Kate wouldn't get her way with the agent? I have wondered for a while but it hasn't been discussed and I never brought it up. What does everyone think?

Thanks, KatiebugandBrayBraysMommy. Success! The look on Kate's face when put in her place. . . priceless.

Coming clean, have a long-term employee with identical twins (Latinas). My precious employee worked until the day those babies were due. They have visited me for 10 years. One day, I realized these exuberant, vibrant and stylish young girls deserved a chance in front of cameras and have tremendous marketability. Can so pass tests of talent agent. If they try, I'll be in background making sure they are not taken advantage of . . . have learned a lot from this site.

Cara and Mady are lovely young women with many talents, so no offense to them.

**********************************
I don't know if TLC had anything to do with squashing this plan or not, IMO, I think Kate was overly optimistic and expected the agent to fall over the twins and put them in commercials, shows, etc, right away...I'm not sure that Kate was up for taking them to auditions, (too exhausting for Kate, I'm sure!) and when the agent suggested that the twins get some acting experience in small productions, I could just hear Kate's eyes rolling back in her head!!! (again, that exhaustion thing!) It also seemed to me that Kate realized she couldn't easily bully the agent (gotta love that agent's 'take charge' personality!), so I think Kate was 'done' (in Kate's word!!!) with that plan...Does anyone else have any ideas about this clip?? I'd love to hear them...

antique lady said...

KatiebugandBrayBray'smommy:

Mady wanted to do it because she craves the spotlight. Kate would have held back, questioning if it was the best offer, because of jealousy of her girls, especially Mady, if a contract were offered, which I never saw happen.

Even jobs auditioned for are best obtained by those well represented by an agent.

You are making a difference by not watching TLC.

Only "Nielsen Families" have an effect on ratings. When the media uses the word ratings they mean Nielsen Ratings.


Excellent comment, watching.
Nielsen families statistically reflect the overall audience so if there is decline in the greater, it should be reflected in the latter.

A lot of network marketing execs and PR crisis communication experts will want to have more detail so they can plan their campaigns to salvage JK+8 so they will commission telephone polling and other surveys.

Here is where I think GWoP contributors will have the greater impact by creating the tipping point (see the book Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell) to lead a change in public opinion on how child actors are treated in reality tv. It won't be easy and it will take time but it can be done.

pretty is as pretty does said...

Think Kate will have twins run a lemonade stand to compensate for the loss of revenue from the lack of love offerings.

Isabel said...

***longtimelurker***
I just have to add my two cents...
I hope and pray that this family will be able to heal itself! I never watched this show until one marathon tlc episode where I watched the first two specials, and then the regular episodes to get hooked.

I then started asking questions like, 'where are all the extended family?'

I started to do some research, and learned a whole bunch of things that opened my eyes about this show.

I would like to see the show OFF THE AIR!!! I would be happy if I never saw anything else about this family in the media because I would hope that would mean they are leading happy and NORMAL lives. By THEY, I mean the kids, but really the parents need to retreat from the limelight.

It really seems to be a sad, sad situation.

squatmunkie said...

There is a video of Jon and the child of the doctor who did Kate's tummy tuck on radaronline. They snuck in separately to a restaurant and ate together.

There are also radaronline photos of the girl partying with her friends. They aren't really bad or anything. It just shows her immaturity...or youthfulness. Kinda odd that Jon is "friends" with such young people.

******************************
Thank you, Tracy; this is interesting to hear what former child actors have to say, like Paul Peterson who is often referred to here on GWoP and he's been on TV talking about the Gosselins (he came before the Little House actors; he's just a bit older than those ladies).

It's good to get them talking...it's good everybody is talking!...because we need to use our voices for the Gosselin kids since they can't speak for themselves.

Gotta admit, though, that GWoPs will be going after something and sure enough the next day Kate seems to go into damage control mode. It's happened more than once. Somebody in her camp reads this blog if not Kate herself.

According to some KU students, Jon was seen at Shorty's bar again a couple of days ago.

I understand his life hasn't been so great lately, but there has to be a better way to deal with it than getting trashed so often. :\

Does anyone know what the other TLC stars think of Jon and Kate plus Eight? Or what Kate thinks about shows like Little People Big World or 18 Children and Counting?
It would be interesting to hear what Kate has to say or what the other shows have to say
Thanks

Mary said...

Why doesn't she seem more upset?
I guess she's not upset because she never loved Jon to begin with.

Nope. She just has a new man in her life. Easier to move on when there is already someone there waiting.

--------
I don't think Kate is capable of loving anyone. I suspect that she doesn't even love herself -- that's why she has put so much of her energy into her looks. My guess is that she thinks that's all she has going for her. I hate to say anything nice about her, but she must have had a VERY unhappy childhood.

I agree, by 5 my daughter was definitely having some say in the clothes we bought and starting to show preferences towards certain cuts that were more comfortable to her etc.

Also, that Gymboree dress she has the girls in (why a dress to play outside??) is from last year. Which in Gymbo terms is like 100 cycles ago, lol. Now, I'm not a snob and my daughter is wearing ANYTHING from last year we can still squeeze into, but I am shocked the Kate would not have the newest Gymboree lines!

I mentioned this in another post, but I'm pretty sure I saw Mady in a Nesquik commercial. She was on a swing at the very end and it would have been before she got her braces. But I am almost positive it's her--if it's not, some girl out there looks more like her twin than Cara!

As for why Kate didn't jump on the talent agent thing in that episode, I think she was personally offended by that agent. I'm sure Kate expected everything to be handed to them (as it usually is) and was just waiting for someone to do just that. You know, sorta how she hinted (several times) that she hated their old camera, etc.

Curious said...

I don't get these photos we are seeing. I read that the driveway is 1/2 a mile long and from the pictures I've seen that seems about right.

Are there really camera lens that can shoot 1/2 a mile that clearly?

It seems to me like we would be seeing the more "normal" pap shots...far in the distance, blurry, bad shots, etc if they were being taken from OFF the property.

The pics we are seeing make me think the "pap" is standing with the TLC camera crew on the property, very close to the subjects.

Can anyone shed any light on the ranges cameras can take such nice, clear, close-up pictures?

pinkdiamond611 said...

Obviously the setting up the obstacle course was to prove that Kate can handle being a single Mom. She must have been dying inside, No Yawn to order around, No Steve to give her loving looks. She never has done a day of physical (if you can call it that, lol) labor in her life. I am sure there were plenty of P.A.s on the set, but she had to make it "look" good. Turns out the public is the ones with the good "look". Hope nobody was blinded. (wink)(snicker)

Dianew said...

I just can't help but wonder... where is this woman's family? Aside from Kevin & Jody speaking out, no other family member has stepped in to speak out about this awful, awful mess of a mother or actually stepped in to at least help these children. -- I am outraged that this has been allowed to continued. Its as tho no one has bothered to tell the empress (Kate Gosselin) that she is not wearing any clothes. Her little (and I mean little) group of supporters (TLC and now the govenors office)are milking these children for all the money they can get. Yes, I know I'm ranting but, I am so disgusted by this whole charade. Its time now for the grandparents to step up to the plate and help these babies before more damage can be done.


one other thing... is PA going to sign in a stimulus package to continue their exploiting of the Gosselin 8?--

Pilgrim Soul said...

I can't stand Kate, but I am curious if her mothering skills have changed over the years. The twins were not babies when the tups were born. What was family life like when it was just John and Kate plus 2? Did they cook real meals? Did they play with the girls? Did Kate show them any actual affection?

If family life was somewhat normal, have the twins just been shunted aside now... insignificant and completely tangential to the tups? Is this shift in dynamic the spring from which Maddie's anger erupts (in addition to having ever moment of her life filmed for complete strangers without her consent, of course).

jonandkatewho? said...

Regarding Cara and Mady going to the talent agent...

I think Kate probably believes in her nonsensical way that since she is so very special, her kids are also special because they were born from her amazing uterus.

She probably felt like any talent agent would just be speechless with awe, and immediately sign those kids up to be big stars, nevermind that actors have to work to perfect their craft.

When the woman in charge suggested they do acting classes and things that would actually teach them something about being performers, Kate's mind shut down because look at her, after all...she has become famous for absolutely nothing and it has all come easily to her. She has not had to put any effort into becoming what she thinks is a "star", so effort regarding the girls is just too much work for her.

I really think she went in there with a very unreasonable set of expectations.

Jen K said...

About the twins and the agent: I believe that episode is "Pancakes and Potties" but I could be wrong.

I think that the comment about the girls having to join the union is an excellent hypothesis. Once you're union, you are expected to work union only.

Of course, the line between reality shows and theatrical are very blurry. Perhaps the mere chance of there being an issue with it dissuaded Kate from going further. Mark my words, when this show implodes, those six will have comp cards, resumes, an agent and a SAG card (once they do one union job).

I've said it before: Kate wants every kid in that household bringing in a paycheck so she doesn't have to. That was one of the episodes that made me think, "Hmm, something is not right here or with this woman" and my curiosity made me research and find my way here over a year ago.

NancyM said...

Regardless of how "witchy" KG seems, I take issue with all the comments suggesting she dresses like a hooker. Where does everyone live that they constantly see women covered from head to toe? I live in a regular upper middle class neighborhood. The women in my neighborhood are often outside with their kids in skimpy tank tops and bathing suits. They often go out in sexy dresses or skirts. Their cleavage shows. Their legs show. Gasp! Good grief - big deal. To me, Kate looks fine. Her actions are bad but her appearance is not offensive.

I always notice that when they (mainly Jon) are dressing the tups in the cute matching free outfits - it always looks like they are coming off of the hangers from the store suggesting to me that the clothes have not been washed beforehand.

Knowing all the chemicals and dirt that these materials are put through in the manufacturing process, I wonder why clean freak Kate would allow this to happen.

Just on observation.

How is that possible? We know they didn't go to a restaurant, there are photos of her with "take-out" and of exiting a tanning salon on Mothers Day!

Terra said...

regarding the long shots up the driveway...I am a photographer and it is very possible. The lenses I have seen them using in shots of the paps are very powerful and could easily have taken all those shots from the driveway gate. The "blurryness" you refer to is determinded mostly by camera shake. Those lenses are VERY heavy, so with a tripod or monopod at a minimum, they will have sharp (not blurry) shots. Also, they are cropping in to show the details, such as her panties. The cameras and lenses are getting more and more powerful each year. The price is also coming down, so more paps can afford even better equipment to get the "shot".

Jen K said...

Wondering if the Mother's Day thing was actually filmed on Mother's Day considering that was also the sextuplets' birthday and Kate was seen out doing errands including tanning.

Can't even one thing be real?

ManicNarcissism said...

In actuality mothers day was 5/10 right? Same day she got a tan, so her book tour was actually coming to the end on mothers day, right? I don't have her schedule in front of me but it would be close to the end. So they are either lying about upcoming, because it should say ,to go back out on the road, or this was shot befor the tour started on 4/14. And really that is normal right? Normal to celebrate mothers day a month early.

We'll be able tell by stripet hair, weight real thin or just kind of thin and lifted noons or not.

She must have HATED it!

________________________________
Hi Manic, Kate got too greedy with Gymboree, per a spokesperson from the store. She was leaving the store with ARMLOADS of free clothing. So as a result of Kate's greed, the spokesperson said Kate was then issued a gift card to use each month (so the store could monitor how much she was getting/taking from them), but Gymboree has since reported Kate has to pay for the clothes on her own. SWEET!!! LUV IT!!!

MayDay said...

I agree about the talent agent that Kate thought that the agent would fall all over the twins and sign them immediately. Also she brought the other two babies (I can not remember which ones) also in a subtle way hoping that the agent might take a look at one of them and sign them too.She wasn't really giving Aunt Jodi ( or whoever was watching them a break) She had a plan in mind and it backfired. Kate has had alot of tricks up her sleeve.

What a twit Kate is! What did she envision would happen after she and Jon opened up their whole lives, and worse, their kids' lives, on national TV...she's amazed that People magazine, Us Weekly, etc. write articles about people on TV?? What is wrong with her?? She totally contradicts herself, she loves the media and paps following her every bikini and crotch shot, she loves the attention and the publicity (alledgedley) it brings her show....

I normally run around my back yard in a bathing suit so I can cool off while gardening or whatever. If I go into the front yard or out to the mail box, I generally put on a coverup --- well, because that's what "mama said" long, long ago.

The pet smart dress was just too revealing for daytime although I imagine the twelve-year-old boys liked it.

Everything she wears just screams 'HEY, LOOK AT ME", which in itself is unattractive.

My opinion.

nanasez said...

When the woman in charge suggested they do acting classes and things that would actually teach them something about being performers, Kate's mind shut down because look at her, after all...she has become famous for absolutely nothing and it has all come easily to her. She has not had to put any effort into becoming what she thinks is a "star", so effort regarding the girls is just too much work for her.
******************************

I completely agree with this. Kate is lazy, IMO. I know that may seem odd to hear, since she seems so "driven." But she's driven to get things while not all that willing to put in the work to get there. She'll order people around, delegate, and make use of lots of "helpers" to get things done, but she doesn't dirty her own hands. As for her "success," she's done nothing but have cute babies, shoot a home video that she shopped around to get them a show, and most recently taken credit for someone else's book. She doesn't do anything special or engaging at any of her speaking engagements, and leaves her own book signings half way through each engagement (so much for working hard and loving her fans so much). Kate is one of those people who wants credit for getting out of bed in the morning. She'll make any activity sound like she's put in a hard day's labor in the salt mines. But she's lazy, lazy, lazy. And a fraud.

kaitlinsnana said...

...and if you don't want pictures of your ying-yang on the internet, use your back yard. The black dress in Pet Smart is just too revealing. Why not avoid anything that will cause your children pain in the future.

The person who thought Kate wants them playing on pavement to avoid the OMG stains is probably right.

6/22/09 - Mother's Day Episode

The family celebrates Mother's Day with brunch at Kate's favorite restaurant. Then Kate has to pack up for her upcoming book tour.

---

We know it could not have been shot on Mothers Day because Kate herself said that they don't film on Sundays. And, Kate wouldn't lie. :)

The photos we saw that day could have been taken later in the day. They could have done an early morning brunch before the crowd arrived -- you know, get the kids up at 5 for a 6am "brunch."

readerlady said...

The current issue of TVGuide has an article on J&K+8, and it says that most of the episodes were already shot when this whole mess came to light, and that TLC scrambled to put together the first episode in a hurry so they could address the marriage issue and that they are also going ahead and shooting additional material to insert into the other issues to make them "relevant". So - between the end of season 4 and the end of May, more than 40 episodes were shot? But the kids aren't "working" and the cameras are only there 2 hours a day, 2 days a week. Right. And I have some swampland in Arizona to sell you if you believe that!

nanasez said...

In actuality mothers day was 5/10 right? Same day she got a tan, so her book tour was actually coming to the end on mothers day, right?
*********************
I believe Kate did go back out of town for a few days after the tups' birthday/Mother's Day. If I recall, she had an appearance or two, and came back into town in time to do the Party City trip for the big "birthday party" episode.

BastaAlready said...

Sorry guys, but I'm not buying Melissa Gilbert's sudden "concern" for the Gosselin kids. As a two term president of SAG and a child actress, she surely knew from "exploitation" when news of the Gosselins' contracts hit the industry after their first season.

She has a new book. Is it a coincidence that she's suddenly logging in on child exploitation? She's jumping on the publicity bandwagon (imo). I hope the G kids get some positive relief from this publicity pile-on. They deserve better than what they're getting. Sorry to be so jaded, but I'm tired of watching people profit off these kids -- and there seems to be no end in sight.

Enquiring mind said...

Kate got too greedy with Gymboree, per a spokesperson from the store. She was leaving the store with ARMLOADS of free clothing. So as a result of Kate's greed, the spokesperson said Kate was then issued a gift card to use each month (so the store could monitor how much she was getting/taking from them), but Gymboree has since reported Kate has to pay for the clothes on her own. (by NO MORE freebies)

That's why we keep seeing the kids wearing the same outfits over and over but NOT Kate, she has a new one on everyday. Sometimes it's a style with one in every color. She comes before her kids, you know.

Someone mentioned how she was trying to prove she can put up the Bouncy house without help. Remember the one last year from Little Tyke I believe. I bet when the cameras were turned off, someone else helped. Can you imagine what it is like for Kate not have Jon to scream at? Wonder where Steve went?

The TLC young camera man was filming Kate put up the bouncy house so what she doing showing her underwear? I think Kate is starting to 'pull some Paris or Britney' acts. Although I hate to say that because Britney is doing much better. Kate is acting out in a negative manner.

pretty is as pretty does said...

I am trying to remember at what age generally do kids stop using training wheels. Those kids have had training wheels 4-eva, seems to me. I think most active kids especially ones who have a nack for sports want to ditch the training wheels within 6 months of having them on, am I wrong?

SaNdY said...

On JustJared.com, Kate is out there for another photo op, oops, I mean running yet another errand with Leah in tow and Mr. Black, the body guard...Kate is carrying Leah and she is buried in Kate's neck, seems to be crying or something, Kate prolly warned her how horrendously horrendous those p-people can be...poor kid....

nanb said...

Regarding the talent agent episode; I believe at the time Kate wanted to put the twins to work for her but that has changed.

I believe after Beth wrote the book for her, she is now believes she's an Author and Star. An expert on parenting, healthy eating and organization.

She would drop her children with Jon and only take them out for photo-ops if she could, but that would ruin her Mom image!

Watching the watergate video, the children are her props. There is no recognition of their needs or feelings.

They haven't quite managed that pace. They're still filming for season five, but they are retooling the episodes previously thought done. I guess that's why their schedule seems so flexible at the moment.

I have to wonder who Kate is terrorizing now that she doesn't have Jon to abuse. I'm sure she hated each and every minute of having to assemble those bouncy houses and I'm equally sure she was tormenting someone.

I can't see anyone from TLC actually liking working with her, either. Can't imagine how many people are needed to help keep her in control. Must be a virtual revolving door of staff these days!

I think even TLC will have to cut the strings at some point. Just too much damage control, too much editing, too much lying, too much everything.

I can hope, anyway...

kelly said...

Hey Just Wondering,
I hope when she posed for that pumping gas photo op, she was putting diesel fuel in her unleaded tank. For a family who wants the world to believe that they are organic and eco friendly, those vehicles they drive all get about 12 miles to the gallon. Talk about monkey munch, she's full of monkey munch.

Sharon said...

Regaurding the talent interview for the twins; Kate was trying to control the whole thing as usual. Maddy finally said "Mommy stop". Then the lady that was running the interview turned to Kate and said, "if this is going to happen then I'm incharge". Boy if looks could kill that woman would be dead. You could see right away that Katie Irene was not going to pursue anything with that lady. She made the excuse that if it required any of her time it wasn't going ot happen.

A rose is a said...

Kate sitting home alone on the plastic chair in the driveway is an example of what happens when you abuse those around you (husband) who did all your 'chores'
and 'errand running' and bathing, feeding etc. Your wind up all ALONE.
Its just an early prelude of things to come. You cannot use up and throw away all the people that cared about you and loved your children. Now she just has herself.
Once the filming is done, she truly stands ALONE.

You are making a difference by not watching TLC.

Only "Nielsen Families" have an effect on ratings. When the media uses the word ratings they mean Nielsen Ratings.

Excellent comment, watching.
Nielsen families statistically reflect the overall audience so if there is decline in the greater, it should be reflected in the latter.

A lot of network marketing execs and PR crisis communication experts will want to have more detail so they can plan their campaigns to salvage JK+8 so they will commission telephone polling and other surveys.

Here is where I think GWoP contributors will have the greater impact by creating the tipping point (see the book Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell) to lead a change in public opinion on how child actors are treated in reality tv. It won't be easy and it will take time but it can be done.

TiVo and other DVRs also collect viewing information, such as what shows you have a "season pass" to, etc. I believe you can opt-out of this feature, but I know that (TiVo at least) does share viewing information with third parties, as it says so in their privacy policy. (They do not, however, share other personal information. Viewing habits, only.)

KiminMO said...

Pretty IS as Pretty Does:

Kids learn to ride a 2 wheeled bike at different ages. Some kids skip a tricycle and go straight to a bike w/ training wheels - so they'd be riding with training wheels for years.

My 4 year old learned to ride without them this spring, but that was earlier than my other two. My first was over 6 years old, and my second child was just under 6 years old.

So the 'tups are not behind in this area -although they should be wearing helmets!!

Regardless of how "witchy" KG seems, I take issue with all the comments suggesting she dresses like a hooker. Where does everyone live that they constantly see women covered from head to toe? I live in a regular upper middle class neighborhood. The women in my neighborhood are often outside with their kids in skimpy tank tops and bathing suits. They often go out in sexy dresses or skirts. Their cleavage shows. Their legs show. Gasp! Good grief - big deal. To me, Kate looks fine. Her actions are bad but her appearance is not offensive.

The first season of J&K, there were only a handful of episodes, and TLC was calling it a documentary. The show was on an obscure cable network with zero impact on "the industry". It didn't receive widespread attention in the media until all the recent publicity with closer scrutiny of the show than the fluff pieces that appeared in GH and LHJ last year. So I don't think it's surprising that Gilbert probably wasn't aware of all the details concerning this show until very recently.

I don't care if she wasn't on the bandwagon from the very beginning, she is now, along with "Nelly," and if their support helps to move along legislation for kids on reality TV shows, that's what counts.

Per the talk about how Kate dresses. On one hand I have to agree with how she chooses to dress....But in MY opinion I think that it is TOTALLY inappropriate to have your breasts hanging out for the camera men and her little boys and girls to see unless they are on a beach. She is doing it for the attention. I have 3 son's and I dress appropriatly when in front of them and also dress like a lady when I go into town. One can look VERY VERY sexy WITHOUT her breast hanging out..IT IS CALLED CLASS!

I noticed on Justjared, that today
Kate was out with Leah alone, to go to Bed/Bath&beyond. She again was with the other bodyguard. All week she was out on her own the the kids, running all over town with no bodyguard and today...the bodyguard! At least she must have seen all the negative comments about her flashing her underware, and she actually had a pair of regular shorts on, but still the high heeled sandles. No more T-shirts and baggie shorts for the queen.

FactFinder said...

JustJared must have a deal with Kate to be the only one publishing pictures of her daily. I remember when x17online did this when Britney Spears was on her daily gas station runs, they were the only one publishing her nasty pictures. WHY? Because at that time her boyfriend/pap and scumbag manager made a deal with X17online. They always called Britney beautiful and pretty even when she was wacked out of her mind! JustJared does the same thing with Kate! NEVER anything bad...she's always a good Mom..beautiful. Kate is using JustJared as her own personal Pap.

I find it hard to believe Melissa Gilbert would be aware of the Gosselin's contracts, as the children are not members of the Screen Actor's Guild. Not everyone knew about the show. The question is what will happen now that they do know.

jessaroo said...

I know people have been wondering about KON's old house. This was in our local paper today.

---------------------------
Jon & Kate stuck with unsold house
As if marital troubles and being tabloid fodder is not enough, Jon and Kate Gosselin can't sell their house.
The news that mortgage interest rates are creeping up, further flattening the tanking real estate market, adds to the long list of the Gosselin family's travails.
The couple, co-stars of the TLC show “Jon & Kate Plus 8” have been trying – and so far failing – to sell their former home in Elizabethtown, Pa., People.com reports. The 5-bedroom, 21/2-bath, Cape Cod-style house has been on the market for 89 days and counting.
Season 4 of “Jon & Kate Plus Eight” showed contractors getting the house in tiptop shape before it went up for sale. The home, for which the Gosselins paid $280,000 in 2006, is in a neighborhood where houses are generally built on one-third-acre lots. With their newfound fame and wealth, the Gosselins have decamped for a 24-acre gated estate in Wernersville, Pa., where the eight kids were spotted over the weekend after returning home from a vacation at Bald Head Island.

RE: Training Wheels

Over a year ago Joel was finally first at something, he rode his bike without training wheels. I am
sure it was the first and last time. It would have required parents teaching him to become better at it. That is to much for
these parents. I have never seen these two teach the children anything.

My daughter got her driving permit
on Friday. I took her to a empty parking lot to drive for the first time. Trust me, at that moment I
wanted to stop and put the training
wheels back on (so to speak).
It is my job as a parent to teach her to the best of my ability.

Was Joel the only one that didn't
go on the Starbucks Kinko runs with Kate? I am so sick of the last but not least Joel comments.

Just saying said...

Nanasez,

Your observation about Kate being lazy got me to thinking. That's probably a big part of her appeal. We know the sheeple often refer to the fact that they relate to Kate's angry vocal outbursts with Jon in a "gee, I'm glad I'm not the only one" kind of way. I'm not saying that Kate's fans are lazy, I'm just saying that Kate's bad attitude may be a welcome change of pace from the vast majority of shows that still romanticize parenthood. There are many moms who do feel exhausted and bored caring for their children, but they don't dare express it because they feel like the only socially acceptable feeling about parenthood is gratitude.

Sorry BastaAlready, but not many Hollywood people knew about the Gosselins and their family. It has been on tv, in newspapers and splashed on every weekly rag and mag there is for the last 3 weeks. People that never knew about them are now coming forth with their outrage. I don't find it the least bit surprising that Melissa, Kirstie and Alison are getting involved. I am thankful that they are and the more the merrier.

Regardless of which daughter this is, I agree with SaNdY. Or Kate could have told her to just hide her face.

Queen Charlene said...

I think the license plate is short for "Goalkeeper 1". Jon used to play soccer.

Punkin2448 said...

You know, I think that Kate has always had a way with men. She gets them to fall in love with her (however she does it) and then molds them into the kind of man she is looking for. Someone she can rule, that won't talk back, that is at her service.

I think she HAS TO get her way for whatever sick reason and the man/men HAVE TO be led around by the nose, or she isn't happy.

Then when she's bored with them, or they start growing gazungas (my word for the boys between the legs), she does the worst things she can to get them to leave her. Even though she doesn't want them any more, she can now become the injured party to the world. "Oh poor me, he left me! What a jerk he is!"

I think that's why people view Jon as too passive, etc., because she pulled the wool over his eyes for the first few years while getting him on her hook and now she has beaten him down so much (in the name of the children), he is mystified as to how it got to this point.

That's also why the families have been eliminated from their lives. What if one of them gets Jon or whoever to really see what a manipulating b*tch she really is? Then her game is over and not because SHE wants it to be over, but because someone else has stopped her from playing her games.

I also think Jon's at the angry stage - at her for what she's done to his manhood (hence, the young women) and at himself for being blind to her manipulations (hence, the drinking).

I think him going to these extremes is normal for someone in this kind of mess. At some point we all go from one extreme to the other before the pendulum finally swings back to center and we get our sh*t together and realize we have to act instead of REact.

I have hope (maybe I'm being silly) that he'll get to the point where he focuses on what is important - the kids - not the women or the drinking or the stupid things he's doing and rescues those poor kids from becoming another statistic in Kate's BIG book of hate. The only book she's written herself.

Just my opinion. Sorry this is so long.

just wondering said...

I find it interesting that we don't have so much as a "no comment" from any of her family members.

Haven't any of them even been approached by the media? Seems odd to me... No pictures, no comments, nothing at all from any of them. Weird...

Why did Kate even bring Alexis with her? I think she thinks she is a celebrity like Katie Holmes who was just shot taking Suri to the American Girl store and Suri had her head buried into her mom's shoulder just like Alexis had her head buried into Kate. Kate probably bribed her with a Starbucks drink if she copied Suri.

More episodes that are destination and/or theme oriented?? Are you kidding me?

They have done NOTHING to deserve the wealth they have accumulated. (Beth wrote the first book, the second "book" was a scrapbook that could have been done by any 13 year old, and as for their other income - they got paid to talk at churches and go on vacations and get freebies). They DON'T work for a living!

The new episodes should be about them giving BACK - going to charities, highlighting worthwhile causes, expanding their children's horizons by working with those less fortunate. Not more trips to hotels and spas.....

You know, I think that Kate has always had a way with men. She gets them to fall in love with her (however she does it) and then molds them into the kind of man she is looking for. Someone she can rule, that won't talk back, that is at her service.

I think she HAS TO get her way for whatever sick reason and the man/men HAVE TO be led around by the nose, or she isn't happy.....etc.....

Didn't include the whole comment because of its length, but it makes a lot of sense! Good analyzation!

Loveit said...

Haven't any of them even been approached by the media? Seems odd to me... No pictures, no comments, nothing at all from any of them. Weird...

................

Maybe they feel that family drama belongs in the family - not spread across US Weekly.

Just my opinion.

Just saying said...

I was wondering about what Jon said to that interviewer in Utah about Kate's parents wanting to be drop in grandparents . He said that's the way they were with all the grandkids. Has anyone heard that from Jodi and Kevin?

snerkle said...

BM doesn't think so...she contacted "Us" all about her meetings with Kate and how Kate shops.

not obsessing said...

Geesh! I thought TLC was a family network. Are they going to show Kate with her breasts and bottom hanging out like that? I'm surprised TLC hasn't said something to Kate about her clothing choices.

Huh? said...

What is BM?

I watched the episode of American Choppers the other night, mainly because I really wanted to see what kind of a bike they'd build for Jon (I'm an old biker chick.)
Really enjoyed the parts that didn't involve Kate at all. Was so happy to see Jon FINALLY hanging around with some guys and being able to BE A GUY. I think these OCC guys definetely have a little compassion for Jon.
One guy commented on how he was surprised that Kate would want to have a bike ride with someone else driving "since she's such a control freak." (She'd asked one for a ride.)
I secretly hoped that she would crash on the scooter they redid for her, or at least the dogs would start chasing her and cause her to crash! She treats those dogs no better then she does any human! When they were trying to get in on the action, and she threw something at one of them and then screamed for Jon "Put them in their crate. That's where dogs belong." I couldn't help asking myself where HER crate was??
She is one sad, pathetic excuse for a human being with her behavior. When Jon got on his bike and the OCC guys yelled to open the gate and let him go, she turned and snidely snickered "yeah, let him go!"
The thing that is bothering me about all of this is that those little kids are hearing her comments about their dad, and it WILL affect them. Either they will grow up hating their mom (hopefully) or they will think it's ok to talk down to their dad because mom does it all the time. She is an absolutely horrible role-model for them!
The way the kids act when ANYONE comes on the yard to visit is just insane! It's like they never get any attention or interaction with regular people. They climb all over them and just can't leave them alone. It's so sad to watch. So starved for attention.
I have to give Jon props for the "digs" he got in while with the guys building his bike.
- He sees a bike they named "Black Widow" and Jon says "that's Kate's bike."
- The guys asked if Kate was ok with him getting a scooter, and he said "Yeah, what's mine is mine and what's hers is hers."
- He also said, "I think I'm gonna switch shows after season 5. Season 6, I'll come here (OCC). I'll send Mikey to replace me. Apparently I don't do anything and neither does he." (laughs)
- Also did a little side interview and made the comment that he likes hanging out with the guys because "I have few male friends, as we all know."
The OCC guys really seemed to feel for Jon and his situation. Kept commenting on what a good dad he is and what a nice guy. (Didn't hear a one of them say anything remotely close to that about Kate.) I feel like Jon is MORE THEN AWARE that if it weren't for the kids, they'd have nothing. Even made sure all their names were on his bike and said "I just want a tribute to them because without them I wouldn't be here."
I think Jon was all for the show in the beginning because he actually trusted that they were just gonna do this to document their kids growing up. Once he realized that it was more, and what Kate was really getting to be like, he wanted out, but was in too far at that point. I really do feel for this guy and found myself cheering him on whenever he'd say something remotely funny about Kate.
As far as Kate's physical appearance goes, I don't care how skinny she is, or if her boobs are real, or what designer she's wearing. Beauty is only skin deep. Ugly goes straight to the bone, and she is one ugly B**ch!!

Looks like Mommy needs to cover up her unda-way-yas.

BM is no more of an expert on Kate than I am. Just because you go to one or two book signings does not make you a quotable source to ANY magazine.
I'd bet Kate sent herself the flowers for the "Anniversary." She loves attention, as this week has sickly proven.

jen said...

anyone notice in the interview set on the bookself is "Eight Little Faces" positioned perfectly for all to see?

RE: Training Wheels

Over a year ago Joel was finally first at something, he rode his bike without training wheels. I am
sure it was the first and last time. It would have required parents teaching him to become better at it. That is to much for
these parents. I have never seen these two teach the children anything.

My daughter got her driving permit
on Friday. I took her to a empty parking lot to drive for the first time. Trust me, at that moment I
wanted to stop and put the training
wheels back on (so to speak).
It is my job as a parent to teach her to the best of my ability.

Was Joel the only one that didn't
go on the Starbucks Kinko runs with Kate? I am so sick of the last but not least Joel comments.

----------------------------------
Oh, Cheryl, thank you for saying that. I am *so* sick of Khate always listing the kids in birth order, with Joel always last. She even said in one epi (when they went to the pediatrician) how much it bothered him that he did everything last. That poor boy - how insensitive coming from a mother! I for one always like to list them in the opposite order, just to pay a small tribute to Joel!

The photos on JustJared are Kate channeling Katie Holmes with Suri. Kate has her kids terrified of cameras but yet that's what they do for a living?

I think she HAS TO get her way for whatever sick reason and the man/men HAVE TO be led around by the nose, or she isn't happy.

Then when she's bored with them, or they start growing gazungas (my word for the boys between the legs), she does the worst things she can to get them to leave her. Even though she doesn't want them any more, she can now become the injured party to the world. "Oh poor me, he left me! What a jerk he is!"

_________________________________

I agree with this. I think she has always had her eyes out for just the right guys she can control. Kates world is "domination, manipulation and control" .

I have always thought that Kate can by the type who will charm the pants off a man, then once she has them roped in she changes her tune and becomes a complete shrew and must be in control.

I just cannot understand, if the rumors are true, how a guy like Steve (the bodyguard) would be interested in someone like Kate. I mean she probably put on the charm for him to rope him in, but as a security professional he should be able to recognize certain behavioral characteristics that would give off warning signs. That is why I cannot understand someone like him being involved with someone like Kate. I could see her with a personal trainer or camera guy who might be impressed with her D-list celebrity but Steve has guarded people of real importance like the Royal family.

Huh?? said...

Soooo....who is BM?

ManicNarcissism said...

Here is what I have for dates:

5/12 - Baltimore Airport in transit to Detroit with Steve Neild
5/11 - LA Times says TLC retooling show and scrambling for 5/25 season premiere.
5/11 - Kinko's and bank - Reading, PA
5/11 - Target - Reading, PA
5/10 - Tanning Salon - Reading, PA
5/10 - Picked up take-out
5/10 - Mother's Day/Tup's Birthday
5/10 - People Magazine interview - New York City, NY (people claim's she is doing interview on Mother's Day Weekend but the pics on 5/8, we know she was in AR on 5/9?)
5/9 - Walmart - Bentonville, AR
5/8 - Took pictures for people magazine

My point was... why would you say upcoming since the days after that in Michigan ended her tour. I just have a feeling it wasn't mothers day. I think it will be earlier but they might even say it is "since mother's day fell on the tup's birthday this year."
