On TMZ, Harvey Levin thinks it's all a publicity stunt since Jon said, "watch the show and read people magazine." I think that neither Jon nor Kate is "hurting" and they are just trying to salvage whatever money they can still get. They are so done but since they won't quit . . . they will be burnt!!

Poor kids

Kudos to Jodi and Kevin, as well as Paul Peterson, Julie and all the bloggers and musers who care about the kids.

good grief, another bikini. she is showing as much skin as she can. i think that it's inappropriate. does she have a bikini for each day of the week?

Joan said...

Is anyone else getting really sick and tired of Jon and Kate even more so than usual?

The other day I started out by reading the local newspaper and there was an article about them. Later I turned on the TV to watch The View and they were talking about them. I signed on to the internet and there on the homepage was their picture. I later went to the grocery store and there were 3 magazines with their picture on them at the checkout. At almost any time of the day or night you can flip through the TV channels and someone will be talking about them.

I guess all this publicity was enough to get more people to watch the first episode but I think now it is turning just as many people off.

I feel they are both acting more arrogant and have this "in your face" attitude towards the public. I think they are purposely pulling all kinds of stunts to stir things up. I also think they are loving all that is going on regardless of what they say and are privately laughing at us all the way to the bank.

Concerned Mom said...

I wonder what is in store this coming week....I don't think we are over the hump yet! Poor kids!

Kateismentalwreck said...

I am a psychiatric nurse specialist and I just wanted to voice my thoughts on the Kate & Jon & 8 situation.

Both Kate and Jon are acting with extremely poor judgement but Kate's control freak compulsions are deeply disturbing since she is the mother of these children and they depend on her for emotional comfort, support, guidence and love.

Since Kate's marriage is out of control as well as her life she is even more compelled to control everything else around her. Although Kate pretends to be in control deep down she knows she isn't and her behavior spirals further out of control at the expense of the kids since she no longer has Jon to berate.

Kate's incessant need for attention as well as her severely distorted perception of reality was obvious when she donned her bikini body in public in NC. In one photo she is even seen in a leather bikini along with an obviously self-conscious nanny who had a very bad weight problem around her waist and stomach. It was as if she was forced to be in that shot so kate would be the one with the "best" body. She also chooses leather as a not so subtle way of showing us how powerful and secure she feels in her own skin. I think just the opposite is true. I think there is also the element of "i'll show Jon I can wear a bikini too!" However it isn't just like Jon's 23yr-old lover's body. It is a sign of kate's fragile sense of self-worth.

Kate's relationship with her bodyguard is quite complicated but he fills a void as the lost father figure in her life.

Also if the kids seem happy around the camera crew it is because they have become the only family that is consistently in their lives. They have been denied any normal family relationships with relatives.
Jon is dead wrong to say his kids are happy now. He is not just in denial. His statements come out eight before a new episode is to be aired.; He knows he needs this show to go on so he can buy himself all the toys that he uses to fill the void he feels in his marriage and his own self-worth.

The only answer is for us to boycott the show as well astheir sponsors. Write letters to the sponsors and insist that this trainwreck be derailed for good.

lukebandit said...

that is horrible of the picture with the nanny with the weight problem and kate is in the picture so it will make her look better. kate is pyscho. i just hope that mady and cara sue TLC when they turn 18 and get a substantial settlement and get therapy and have a good life. when the tups get 18 they can also sue.
i hope jon burns in hell for spending 2000K on the shopping spree that he took "Babe" on. remember, jon, the 25K fees at the megachurches and the love offerings? did you buy her a 2000K purse? how much did you spend at Godiva? i also believe that Kate targeted jon because he was korean. korean tups would be something different and would be marketable for a reality show and corporate sponsorship.

Catherine said...

I saw that segment on TMZ, Harvey called it, it is all about ratings now and getting people to watch the show. Jon's answer, saying "watch the show" was very telling. I think a lot of people are getting sick of these two and the media is really starting to expose these two. I also saw a very negative slant on Extra and that entertainment show on Headline News.

Sugarpop said...

Nancy, I have seen various reports over the last week or so that sixgosselins.com has been down. Prior to that I think it was still up and running.

margojata said...

I don't feel sorry for either one of them. Especially after Kate's dramatic "I will not lay down and die!!". Please.

They've made the money, it's time to move on to real life. Just the fact that they have stalkers and hate sites would be more than enough for me to pull the plug for the sake of my kids. Isn't there supposed to be an "I hate Mady" site or something (I refuse to look)?

I think they're living in a scary and creepy world, and I can't for the life of me feel for their bitching about how it's all turned on them.

Avary said...

On Wednesday (June 3) Access Hollywood ran a clip that showed behind the scenes when Kate and the kids did all those interviews, I believe regarding Octomom. Anyway, Mady said she was really thirsty because she'd been sitting there all day. Kate smirked, grabbed a bottle of water she had, said "Is this what you want?" and then drank it in front of Mady and didn't give her a drink!!!!! I just cannot believe how cold and cruel she is. Does anyone have a link to that video?

Countrydeb said...

With all the things that have been said about Kate and how she treats her kids she sounds alot like Joan Crawford. Maybe when Cara & Mady are older they'll write a book about "Mommy Dearest".

<><><><><><><><><><>

With all the media attention it can all get confusing.

In actuality he spent $297 or so on a purse at Cole Haan according to a tabloid. The receipt was in Steve Neild's name. We really don't know who bought it for whom.

The recent shopping trip he was on was with the Glassman's. The family of the doctor who did Kate's tummy tuck. "Babe" aka Deanna Hummel was not on the shopping trip. It is rumored by National Enquirer that he is dating the doctors daughter but the consensus at GWOP is that this is a MIGHTY stretch. We really do not know why he purchased what he did, it could have been gifts for other people, it could have been for them. For all we know Kate told him to buy them something really nice for all the things they did for her. Or maybe he feels bad because Kate has been neglectful in her generosity towards them and has never shown gratitude for the 10,000 gift they gave her.

I'm not really taking up for Jon here - but just stating what we know/don't know so far in this unraveling mystery.

I've been hearing about this video all week. I SO want to see it. I've heard there is some major editing with it, if it is shown as it really happened, then that is a CLEAR sign of someone with Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Jon, Jodi, and Kevin could use a diagnosis of NPD (make her get tested) to try to get primary custody and mandatory supervised visits.

I was a scapegoat of a mom with NPD, and I don't want these kids left alone with her. My mom was not even a rager. I can't imagine Kate unabated, unleashed, and pissed off about the loss of her "empire."

that site has been down since the first new episode of the season started..at first it said bandwidth limit exceeded..then this past Monday it was up for about a hour ..now it looks like it has been totally removed...or they have taken off line to re do it

ManicNarcissism said...

Links I am looking for:

- Kate in tan bikini by pool.

- Mady being denied water at interview.

Dates I am looking for:

- Date Kate took tups to Please Touch Museum.

- Exact dates visited Smithsonian (so far I have only early April)

- Sesame Street Live was on January 2nd. Was Jon really in Utah at the same time with Cara? He did interview with Shauna Lake on 1/16, so he was either there for at least 14 days. Or he wasn't really gone and they didn't let Cara go to Sesame Street for continuity which seems pretty contrived even for this show.

- Date of actual move into new house

- We probably can't track it down, but would love to know when "Walk in the Woods" was filmed. It aired in February. Jon can be short but he was in unique form that day, and I have a feeling this was filmed close to the time that Jon and Kate called it quits (whoever initiated it.)

Okay, there is probably more, but if anyone knows anything let me know.

ManicNarcissism said...

Okay pretty sure Kate is combining her bed rests. With the tups she was put on bed rest at 7 weeks and the pregnancy went 29 weeks so that is 22 weeks. So we are missing 8 weeks. She was put on bed rest with the twins at 28 weeks. I don't know when she had them but if she made it to 36 weeks then there is our missing 8 weeks.

So, it isn't a lie. She stated "My kids are the reason I laid on bed rest for 30 entire weeks."

Don't get me started on the statement. She acts like she is a saint because she laid on bed rest to keep them alive. I believe keeping our children alive is just the most basic required need, it isn't really something you get praise for.

I was watching WE TV last night and saw the preview of the new sextuplet show. I find it very telling that the mom is nurse. It seems nurses (or those that work in the medical field have more multiples than regular people) I remember awhile back another mother had a litter and she was a nurse (she had to go back to work) Two doctors in the peditrician's office I use have twins (another one there did too, but he left) It just seems a bit too coincendental to me.

lifeoriley said...

I do believe that there are real problems in the Gosselin marriage, but when Jon speaks to People Magazine and says "watch the show", I have to believe he is on board for milking the publicity for all it's worth as well as Kate. If Jon really doesn't want to do the show anymore, why would he care about publicity and ratings? If TLC has already committed to 40 episodes this season, why stir up all this controversy for ratings if you don't care if the show continues?
Is Jon looking to make some sort of TV career for himself? It doesn't add up.
I was (slightly) on Jon's side before--he seemed truly miserable--but now I don't know.
Also, the "in your face" attitude of Jon still going out to bars with women (even if they're just friends) and Kate parading around the beach in a bikini and around Bald Head Island with Steve Nield at her elbow seems like a further attempt to drum up controversy and ratings. As Kate said, she doen't care why people watch the show--just that they watch.

Courtney Cloud said...

I am really sad. I don't know who's right or whose wrong. I know it's easy to look at Kate's very controlling personality and just dump all of the blame on her. I still can't believe how careless Jon is being with his actions. I feel like every I see any interview or anything with him that he is done. I know that Kate may have ulterior motives in staying but he is just done. I am so so sad. My husband and I have watched this show since it's started. We have been married for almost six years. We recently loss our baby after I went into pre-term labor around the 6 months mark. Thing like this situation that we are living in make you see the world and things in a whole different light. I know that there are a ton of things to gripe about and complain about with Jon and Kate but I think the real discussion should be over how horrible it is to watch a family break apart. I am sad for Kate for Jon and for all of those kids. I really hate it. I am praying that reconciliation can happen. Please remember this when you post stuff about Kate wearing a bikini...that stuff really doesn't matter.

Thanks so much -

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

With all the travel these children are growing up with, will they grow up always wanting to travel? Or will they want to just stay home and enjoy their privacy?

Thanks for your insight.

On another note, I think the www.sixgossleins.com site is down so the state of PA can't use anything there for investigation purposes. Just my thought.

Merry/OCNJ said...

If the paps have followed her(I can't even say her name)to NC why aren't there more pics of the camara crew and the people who help her in them.Could these pics be coming from her PR.I alone with my children?

Joan, you are absolutely right. They are going to drag this out as far as they can as long as they're getting paid. For the two of them to do interviews whining about no privacy is a joke. They chose this life, yet they act bewildered that they can't have fame and fortune, but also privacy on their terms and the freedom to make poor decisions without scrutiny. Their complete disregard for their children's well-being and absolute insistence that they are on par and equal to real celebrities will keep them in the news for a long time. Just the way they want it.

Jimmy said...

Regarding the kitchen makeover--it is possible this is for another show like Divine Design?--I wouldn't put anything past the Gosselins. Isn't the house only 10 years old?

I agree with the posters who think K8 is setting this up for her own cooking show and that the kids need to be out of the spotlight now. Just hope their parents go too. I know--we don't have to watch.

caroleena said...

Last week when I posted I stated John was the superior parent, as the barf inducing situtation comes more into play, that utah trip with deanna hummel speaks volumes. and this constant kate in her "bikini" and fake azz interaction with the kids, does TLC actually think they are going to get 40 episodes out of these hacks? man both of them are pathetic famewhore money grubbing disgusting parents. jon comes to mind when he stated on the interview couch i kmow what i know and yea we know too. what moron would take their "not a girlfriend" to utah while they are filming and paps are swarming. he has lost all credibility with his woe is me. this show is not rock of love or some other drunken free for all, but i hope the masses are lstening and cant imagine what ther church is thinking. getting divorced happens but parading around like jon has, dealing poorly my behind, grow a pair jon, you signed up for this, you are wealthy becuz of this and now you are tired of paps, only becuz they caught your lying cheating, drunken azz. period. the show stopped being about the kids long ago.

beachluvin said...

I think it was ET last night where Ken Baker reported that a fan went up to the table that Kate and the kids were eating at and asked if they were moving to NC, one of the girls replied "yes".
I think TLC will rent a house for Kate and the kids in NC to avoid child labor laws. They will say that Kate needed to get away from the "p" people.
The safest place for the children would be their own home. I wonder if they have ever swam in their own pool.

Tanya G. said...

A day or two ago I saw the preview for American Chopper? ( I'm not sure of the program's name, it is on TLC). Anyway it shows them customizing Jon a motorcycle and Jon remarks on how it is nice to have male friends since he is always hanging around his female friends. He then makes a statement about how its been in the papers etc. Very cocky IMO.
I think it is absolutely disgusting that this freebie crap is continuing. There are people in our country that do not have homes, food or any luxuries at all; yet these idiots get everything handed too them and act so ungrateful.

pinkdiamond611 said...

All of this publicity is going to backfire on them. The public is simply sick of the Kons. As soon as most people see their surgically enhanced bodies on T.V. they simply *Click* the remote. Buh-bye Kons. Don't let the door hit you on the way out. . .

bertie22 said...

This is purely a guess, as blind items always are, but I came across a post at BlindGossip.com that made a lot of sense:

"Who is contributing drama to a reality show on a carefully orchestrated schedule? This person/couple clearly has no problem at all sacrificing reputation for money. We have actually seen the rough schedule they have worked out to impart drama at key times to keep the bloggers chatting, to keep ratings high, and to raise their payout for this and (hopefully) future ventures. It’s totally designed to drag out this period of fame as long as possible, and orchestrated to stimulate waves of outrage and controversy followed by relative calm and/or sympathy, and then repeated. They are smart enough to realize their 15 minutes will come to an end, so they are milking it for all it’s worth right now. The next time you yell at the TV or text your friends about it, know that you have been used. Oh, and look for the introduction of a new “character” in the near future to shake things up even more."


I am convinced that this is J&K, and that the new "character" is going to be Stepdaddy Steve. For quite some time now, we've seen another bodyguard trailing Kate in addition to Mr Grey. Why would she need another bodyguard? Or maybe she just needs one boyfriend and one bodyguard.
I think that relatively soon we are going to see an episode or two showcasing a 'growing attraction' between them, and then they'll use this to transition the show into "All About Kate" and her struggles as a single mom trying to find love and juggle a 'career'. Think about that annoying summer music TLC is using for their commercials, it goes perfectly with a commercial about watching Kate find new love. Does anyone else think they'll go in this direction?
Also, has anyone else noticed a change in the boy's behavior? I find them to be much more aggressive and foul-mouthed than they were. The part of the episode where one of the boys is trying to push a tree over onto a camera man struck a nerve in me. He kept saying "So you better move, you better get out of the way"
I keep hearing the boys say things that sound like cries for help. I think that when the crew changed, the kids started to feel weird about this. they dont seem as engaged with the camera, and they often say things that make me think that they dont know how to say "stop filming me" and are trying any way they can. this is so sad for so many reasons, and i wish it would stop.

RIley said...

I was flipping channels today and on TLC there was a preview for I think all of the Monday shows. The showed Jon and Kate then a graphic came up that said 9.8 million viewers. I guess to proclaim they are the 'most popular show' Well they wouldn't have gotten 9.8 million people to watch if they weren't having problems. So I believe TLC is going to use that angle to make their show more popular. SICK!!

Avery-
I also saw those clips. Were they the ones where she told one of the kids 'You're already going to get a spanking when you get home do you want anohter one?' I think that was on Access Hollywood.

Jon minus Kate/why r they still 2gether? said...

I have 2 questions:
1-Why does Kate need a bodyguard?
Jon never has one when he is out alone or with the kids- is it only
because they are an item?
2-Why are they filming out of state?
Is it because of the ongoing investigation?

Twice as Nice said...

Jon and Kate are celebrating their 100th episode. They are making something like $50,000 to $75,000 and episode now so let's just take the 100x$50,000 and it's more money than a lot of people will make in a lifetime. Plus, the books, DVD's, speaking engagements, free perks, etc. It still isn't enough for Kate who is doing all of this for her children...Really?

I use to LOVE this show. Every Monday night at 8:00 my family knew I would be spending time with my "other family". I told all of my friends to watch. I now feel very deceived. Kate said their show is the most REAL reality show there is. Funny how she and Jon have been living seperate lives for 6 months but the show never reflected any of it. We were still lead to believe all was well.
I do believe Kate came to Jon 6 months ago and told him it was over, that he could do what he wanted if he just showed up for taping. That's why he says he didn't cheat on her. Oh and her response for cheating on him was very telling as she said it was unthinkable,blah, blah, blah, but did you notice she didn't say it was untrue? Nice choice of words. Kate has become a different person ever since Beth Carson wrote the book for Kate.(Nice that Kate never gives her friend credit) Once she hit the road promoting the book the marriage really took a nose dive. She became a Dive and a legend in her own mind. The fans she once hated she began to love as they kept buying tickets and telling her how wonderful she was. It's become all about her. Funny how Jon says he isn't a writer but then is Kate? Beth basically wrote the first book and I've heard the second book was disappointing and more like a children's picture book. I'll bet that took a lot of talent.

Kate has become so big, but don't call her a celebrity (HA) that she has to have body guards. Even when taping for TLC. She doesn't have a nanny, just a helper. Would she look bad admiting the woman who claims to do it all has help?
Gone are the jogging sets replaced by bikinis, short skirts, and high heals. Gone is a show about the kids it's now all about Kate's camera time. Who is this woman? All of us that have watched this show saw that she treated Jon badly and never appreciated him. It was apparent how unhappy he was but she didn't seem to care.

The only way this marriage even has a chance is if we quit watching. They aren't even trying to work it out as I'm sure poor over worked Kate has decided she is too good for Jon now. They need to be forced to come together and do what is right for those children. A real mother thinks of her children first before her own wants and needs. Kate is in her own little fantasy world and she will let no one come between her and what she wants. Not even for the sake of her children or their father. Kate is a very selfish, self centered woman. She should take a little glance into the future and asked herself how she will like having joint custody of her children and handing them over to Daddy and the new woman in his life, half the time. This "Christian woman" is selling her soul and her family for fame.

Aunt Chris said...

Could this vacation be a fortelling of custody arrangements to come? "Jon gets the twins because he really only wanted two any way and Stevie and I get the little money makers, I mean sextuplets."

so irritated said...

bertie22 Re: the Blind Gossip item (yet another website I am addicted to {sigh}!

I saw that as well, I do think it's J&K and I absolutely think the new character is Mr. Gray.

Let's see, how will they 'splain this in a way the sheeple will accept and endorse, especially since St. Kate called the accusations "disgusting, unthinkable, unfathomable."

Kate's plan of telling Jon it was over and giving him permisson to cheat sort of worked. He was photographed with a special "friend" who has a chatty brother. Kate, who wanted to deal with it privately by giving an exclusive to People, played the somber but strong victim who will find a way to go on despite her cheating dog husband. She all but came out and said "see, I'm really not the bad guy here, Jon is... so everyone love me. Now." Her statement about how you bcome close with your team; security, publicists etc. is to lay the groundwork for when she and Mr. Gray come out. I just don't think she planned on Jon, Kevin and Jodi coming forward and claiming Kate was the one who ended it and that Jon suspected her of cheating first. I'm sure that throws a wrench into the "script."

Bladeofgrass said...

I believe tonight that Kate is going to be on Larry King. I am not sure if this is new or a repeat. I will be sending a tweet to CNN and Larry. He better be asking some tough questions. It seems that TLC has many people in their pockets.

I watched TMZ, but I do not think it is a publicity stunt. These cons want to eek out every penny they can before the show ends. I believe that Kate is heavily involved with the Silver Fox and she does not intend to let anything stop her new love affair. I know this is awful to say, but it would be great to see her pregnant from him. It would further bring down her house of cards.

If any sheeple are reading this...spend all your money on these cons. I laugh at you for wasting it on your idol. You obviously cannot see the forest for the trees.

TLC and lackeys for PR... Enjoy the money while you can. I will never read People Magazine again nor watch anything on TLC. TLC has been locked out on my cable for good. I will also keep writing to your sponsors until they see the light.

Kate Gosselin is one of the most despised persons on reality TV. She is infamous for pimping out 8 beautiful children. I also lay the blame at Jon’s feet too…a good father would stop this insanity now.

Kates flaws:

Rude
Pimp Mommy
Nasty
Narcissist
Greedy
Cold
Viscous
Sociopath
Selfish
Deceitful
Stupid

Kate's Virtues:

Zero

Pamela said...

Oh those poor children!And as much as I give credit to Kate for handling all of those beautiful kids, she didn't do it alone.Even if she hadn't treated Jon like he was a child and with no respect, I believe he has done his part. No one knows some one til they live with them.I think they both better start thinking of those children, and not themselves. They didn't ASK to be born!

snarky said...

Sorry, couldn't resist; this is the best! From comments to new Page 6 Kon blurb:

Mrs. O'Neill wrote:
I can understand the need for a body guard for the children but I'm pretty sure Kate is safe on her own. Who would be crazy enough to want to spend any time accosting her? She'd be yelling at the guy the whole time - "You're tying me up wrong!" "Hello, is this the first time you've done this?" You don't know what you're doing as usual." yadayadayada. She'd be free in no time.

jon/kate turnedintosurvivor said...

I personally hope to see more and more of Jon and Kate in the media. Let Kate keep parading around in 10 more bikinis. As the backyard puppy breeder said, "you don't know when to quit!" as he referred to Kate having to multiples of kids and pets (and probably everything as evidenced by her bikinis.) Kate doesn't know when to quit, let her burn the public out. Let her show her greedy, narcissistic side by "getting more stuff" like she was giddy about in her honeymoon video. Kate and Jon both have turned into materialistic, fame whores living off the backs of their kids. Perhaps they will be out manipulated by the body guard in the end. Now there is a concept for a Hollywood show, how a body guard stole the mom and fortune of 8 kids, eight years and under.......shameful.

just wondering said...

Personally, I can't wait for Kate's cookbook to be released. I can't wait to see just how badly it bombs.

Can you even imagine how many people are going to scrutinize and research each and every recipe for plagiarism?

It will be mocked from here to Mars!

There just aren't that many sheeple left who will dare being associated with Kate in any way, shape, or form.

I wonder if Kate knows that her world is slipping away. TLC has isolated and insulated her from as much outside media contact as possible and she may not really be aware of the public storm surrounding her.

I wonder if Steve Neild is still being paid and how that makes Kate feel inside.

So many things to wonder about!

anotherPAmom said...

I know that some GWOPers have written letters or stopped using products from companies associated with this charade. IT LOOKS LIKE GIANT FOOD in central PA HAS CHOSEN TO DO THE RIGHT THING! YAY! Whether its because the pressure is working or because they are embarrassed by Jon and Kate's actions, I don't know. However, in today's (6/6) Harrisburg Patriot News there is a news item featuring a Giant spokesperson.

"For instance, gossip . . . . had Giant Food Stores supplying lifetime groceries to the Gosselins. Not even close, the Middlesex Twp. based company said this week. Spokeswoman Tracy Pawelski said Giant in 2004 gave a one-time, $ 5000.00 gift of diapers, wipes, and gift cards. 'We've done [similar gifts] when something like this comes along and the community mobilizes in support of a family,' she said. What a difference five years make.. . . .."

Thought this was interesting and also thought that this is a reliable enough explanation that I think GIANT FOOD SHOULD COME OFF THE BOYCOTT /LETTER LIST. No, I don't work for them but they are based in central PA and are excellent at giving jobs with benefits to local high school students and college students.

I really appreciate that they are trying to distance themselves from this circus now, the gift back in 2004 sounds typical of what Giant often does in supporting a community.

Does anyone besides me find the latest J&K commercial particularly distateful and misleading? It says something to the effect of, "All families go through good times" (show picture of Gosselin family posing in front of a Christmas tree),"and bad times." (Show J&K on opposite sides of the couch). "But, there are always special times to celebrate...Emeril....100th episode...Yada, yada", with pictures that lead the viewer to think that they are back together as on big, happy family again.

AliceBlueGown said...

Kate has said she wants to do at least two more years of the show. Maybe the house will be free and clear then? Or maybe it is now, but she has said she wants two more years.

So, what happened to the claim that they will stop whenever it stops being good for them -- any of them?

Yes, sure. Well, Mady has wanted out the entire time and Jon appears to be saying he wants out. But he is good at lying too, so who knows how genuine his wants really are.

Karen said...

Bertie22 --- I think that blind item is about the hills not jon and Kate plus 8.

Someone posted a Perez HIlton blind item a while ago from November thinking it too was about J&K but I'm pretty sure that one was about the Real Housewives.

Nancy S said...

There have been comparisons between Octomom and J&K.

As I see it, we all know that Octomom is a loon and way way out there. Nothing she does shocks anyone.

I think J&K are more despicable than she is.

J&K are a couple, not a single mother.

Most men work, and Jon has let himself look like a bum because he doesn't go to work. (Yes, we know he works at home.)

So, for a married couple to stoop so low, it is worse than Octomom.

tscoll said...

It never appeared to me that Jon and Kate were truly happy together. I think they tried their best, but as another poster stated, Kate's need to control (due to low self-esteem or whatever, I don't care), and berate her husband started very soon after the series began and became steadily more cringeworthy. No doubt, her neuroses got the best of her and she took out all the stress and frustration on Jon.
But even before that, the relationship was doomed as Jon clearly stated he never had wanted to marry or be a dad. Of course, he was about 21 when he said that and it could have changed later when he was out of diapers. The guy didn't even have a job when they met!
All of a sudden, this cute, pushy sprite appears from nowhere and railroads him into marriage and 8 kids. I am not a believer in fertility treatments unless and until they can be controlled. The Gosselins are a great case in pt. If you can end up with a litter and you are not androids like the Duggers, you will become stressed and miserable. Mark my words.
So one young guy who has nothing going on meets the Queen of control freaks, she pushes him into being a husband and father of 8 at what, age 24 or something and they are now divorcing...surprise! Not. My take is that the show should be banned from TV, and those two forced to invest their $ in caring for their children, including intensive daily family therapy for all of them and lots of quality help. It WILL take a loving, committed village to get anything resembling healthy kids to emerge from this mess of total immaturity vs the insatiable need to control and berate. Jon is and was *always* miserable in his role and husband and father. He never seemed authentic for one second.
Kate is the LAST person in the world who should become a mother of multiples. I think the twins would have sent her over the edge. Without TLC and all the other perks and $, she would have lost it a long time ago.
They are both way too immature and self-centered with heads up their wazoos to be parents of anything including the dogs. I wish the kids the best tho.

It could just as easily be Heidi and Spencer as the answer to that blind item above.

********

I'm sorry but this is such a ridiculous statement. Open heart surgeries kill the patient sometimes, does that mean we should stop doing them? Getting a litter from fertility treatments is so rare. I used them to help me get pregnant with my first child and I only had the one. Most women who have fertility treatments, end up with only one baby.

Yes, I am very sick of them. They are not trying to stay out of the lime light or Jon wouldn't walk around in front of his house and Kate wouldn't wear a different bikins every day! Jon says, you'll have to watch our show????What a scam. These 2 people ought to have everything taken from them and have to work for everything like the rest of us. They are slugs and all we're doing is allowing them to keep up this charade by watching them.

Natari said...

I have not caught up with all the post but I wanted to comment on Steve being divorced. Now it all makes sense. He is part of the family because we all know he's there 24/7.

Any reputable security company would have pulled him from the assignment by now. So he's there for personal reasons. The kids think of him as family so when the show ends or hopefully gets canceled he will move right on in.

Oh wait he's already in. As for Jon he doesn't care because he's in it for the money. I do believe their marriage ended a while back. Shame on them with the Hawaii episodes. Telling the kids they would stay together forever.

I think both of them are enjoying the paparazzi. Her in her bikinis and him picking up crap off his lawn right next to the fence. so he could say something stupid like "Watch the show,read People" Do they think we are that dumb?

I am happy to say I did stop watching the fakery and it was hard because I loved watching the way TLC spins it. They must be working overtime to try and produce this show as a family.

It really does not come across that way anymore and the joke is on them. I think the cook book will be a flop and about a year from now Kate will be a figment of our imagination married to Steve and probably moved to another state.

I'm guessing NC from previous episodes etc. So anyway I just hope they put a side enough therapy money for the kids.

Also some one please notify ASPCA for the dogs. I can't even read the posts on that.

One last thing I wonder if a film crew member goes in to the stores a head of Kate and the kids to remove the tabloids for the fear of the kids seeing themselves on the covers.

STOP THE EXPLOITATION AND CRUELTY NOW!!!!!!

Funny, I was thinking the same thing.

Another thought, if TLC moves the show to NC, IMHO this is an admission of guilt to all the charges and complaints levied against then and KON.

Khloe said...

I think this is all fake and they are loving having their awful names all over the place.

I would like to add that I am a mom who works hard to look nice and I wear bikinis at the beach. If I looked like kate I would NOT, though. (Mean but I mean COME ON she might look better then she used to but she has nothing on the real Hollywood bods) I also wear heels and cute clothes when I am out and about. However, I don't buy them with money I made ruining my childrens lives. I do not agree that moms can't wear bikinis or wear heels to the grocery store.

I never watch shows like this because I feel that there are so many children that need homes. It seems like people spend thousands on fertilty and then when they end up with a litter are all about handouts. NOT everyone but the ones you see on TV. I did watch the show a couple times because catching a few clips thought kate was kind of funny. That was until I realized she was like that all the time and treated her kids with little to no compassion. Watching the gum episode made me google "jon+kate+8+b&%ch" because I wondered if anyone else out there felt like I did. That search brought me to this site. WOW

I have friends who have three biological children and two adopted. They raise their five kids (along with over 60 children they have fostered throughout the years) in a small three bedroom house that is full of love. They work their butts off to provide for their kids. They don't want or expect any handouts because they choose their beautiful life.

jon and kate just make me want to vomit. I live in Charlotte and hope to never see these greedy parents around my parts! It makes me ill that they are getting all this publicity (like immature children they don't care if it is positive or negative) and the fake celeb status they are recieving. The Little People Big World family deserve it more than any of these lame reality family shows do. They are not perfect but they are a loving hard working family.

OH MY this was loooong and I didn't even say all I had to say. LOL

Melanie P. said...

I'm watching "What not to wear" at the moment on TLC - and it's the first time since the Hawaii farce that I've watched this channel. I'm disgusted with the current ads being shown...the one for American Chopper where Jon makes a comment about "it's nice to have guy friends, we all know I have mostly female friends...heh heh." In such bad taste. What is wrong with this man? Not that I ever thought he was a sharp knife in the drawer, but his comments to the media are inane. Someone has to put some duct tape on that dolt's mouth - he seems to have no mental filter and spits out whatever inappropriate comment pops into his dim brain.

The commercial for the 100th episode is such garbage "life has good times and bad times..." For SHAME. These two grifters have no limits. Every time these I think these KON artists have sunk to the lowest, they surprise me. Disgusting. Shut this circus down.

M.M.M. said...

It seems like even real celebrities, (ie Katie Holmes, Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow etc.) are smart enough to not constantly pimp out their children to the mass public. However Jon and Kate think it is prefectly acceptable? I don't know why they bother me so much because I don't even know them. I just cannot stand listening to such utter stupidity with them lying to us and themselves that their kids are the ones in the control seat here.

And the previews for the upcoming shows...ridiculous! Let's just put lipstick on the whole pig of a situation!
They are acting desperate and delusional. I was more sympathetic to Jon's side, but I think he might be just as bad because he seems like he sees the situation a little more clearly, but refuses to do anything.

Melody said...

I think these crossover shows like the recent ones and the ones coming up with the American Chopper guys will be what slowly turns people off from the show.

These crossover shows make them look ridiculous and it will bite them on the butt.

CountMeOut said...

Let's all think back to the episode where they took Cara & Mady to the acting/modeling agents. As I recall, the agents basically said (in a nice way) that the girls were not professional material. Kate then backpedaled and said they only went there for fun and they weren't really going to do it, yada yada.

Anyway, it made me think about Kate and her aspirations for her kids. Seems to me that she just wanted SOMEONE in the family to be famous, and turns out - It's her! She is so full of herself now, and I realized that she reminds me of someone.....

DINA LOHAN (Lindsay's mom).

If you want to see Mady & Cara in 12 years - look at Lindsay. I have always wondered how Dina could leave Lindsay all alone out in LA, obviously with emotional & psych. problems.... but Dina doesn't care about what's best for her daughter, just in staying in the limelight.

Also, the Lohans had a nasty divorce, Dad always in the tabloids, mom going partying with young kids, trying to get her photo in the papers, etc.

notsheeple said...

Lukebandit
In regards to your comment about the babysitter having a weight problem and being next to Kate.

Do not forget despite the possible child exploitation and failing marriage and gigantic egos, these are real people and saying such harsh things about the babysitter is not necessary. Who are you to comment on someones weight in such a way. Maybe the babysitter is a supportive role model in the child's life but with comments like these and the media around her, she too will be forced to leave.
The purpose of this blog should be to talk about the child exploitation not just hate the Gosselins and everything around them.

Jacsamic said...

Well, even though the world did not get to see the 'blue' bikini under the white cover up, I would like to think that the power of the GWOPers made someone tell her to cover herself up in front of the children for the beach photos...let's see she is up to four bikinis, but, the children have been wearing the same swimwear for all her shots...I guess she cannot have her backdrops take attention away from her......no question the children see Steveas their fathers' replacement....I sure hope he is good, and gentle, with them.

....they have to be reading here....we see her holding their hands, somewhat interacting, paying attention when one of the girls was crying...smiling, somewhat....and covering up....

Is it just me or does she really look OLD?

HBailey said...

I have said this before, but they are BOTH milking this for as long as they can...it's not just Kate. Jon could get out of the contract and fight for his kids, but he's just as into the $$ as she is.

I think she's largely to blame. She's clearly a narcissist. But - as a lot of narcissistic women do - she married someone extremely passive that she could control. She's still in control even though it's obvious - and been confirmed - that their marriage is over. He likes the money too much to stand up and take control.

They aren't going anywhere....and they are laughing all the way to the bank.

Stop watching this train wreck....I have.

It seems TLC is focusing on the tups, mainly 3 at a time. First the girls, then the boys.

http://www.usmagazine.com/news/kate-and-her-boys-visit-battleship+-200956

Honestly, I've lost all respect for Jon and Kate, TLC (corporate and production crew/staff) the security dudes and anyone else who is benefiting financially or otherwise from the unfortunate dilemma the Gosselin children find themselves in.

Lisbeth said...

My take:
-Jon's response, "Watch the show" a quick way to respond to paparazzi on the edge of his property. He just didn't want to get in a conversation with the fellow.
-The comments re: Kate's body reflect how in our society when people disagree with a woman, it is accepted to respond by attacking and focusing on her looks.

-Attacking the parents negatively, re: gossip and "celeb" mags/sitings, does not help the children in the short or long run. This is a family (no matter how we feel about them). They will need to be there for each other 3 years, 5 years, 10 years, 20 years down the road. Picking them apart for entertainment is not constructive.
- My biggest concern has always been that TLC, and the parents have thrown the children's private lives on national tv for public consumption and entertainment. I just hope the result is protection for the kids so they are not working long hours, further exploited (privacy disturbed) and have monetary protections in place. I also hope that this will snowball towards actions for other kids/shows: Dr. Phil, Supernanny, Wifeswap, Table for 12 etc.

Admittedly, I would like the see the show off the air. I do wonder though, if that would cause further harm/damage for the kids. I don't know. I don't trust the parents or TLC to make a decision on this matter, and hope a result of all this media focus wouldn't be on the bikinis, beers and bodyguards but on seeking an outside independent advocate for each of the kids.

Thats my two cents. :)

Jennifer D said...

few random thoughts....

Jon and Kate were already seperated while filming many of the yet the to be seen episodes for season 5. Seeing the promo for the Emeril show it seems they were interacting and even smiling at each other. I am wondering if we will see more and more of this as they reveal the other "new" episodes?

Here is my point: If they had already seperated and were able to still be civil for the cameras then why was the birthday episode so tense? It was not a new thing to them.

If Jon thought Kate was cheating with the body guard then why would he have been ok with the guy being at the birthday party? Why would he go along with the guy being on vacation with the kids RIGHT NOW? Why would Kate have sent Jon to get her cell phone knowing that he could have read her text messages?

This whole thing is simply not adding up. Jon is not powerless. he is 50% of the decision making power there. If he wanted Steve gone, he would be gone.

I am trying to step away and stop reading any tabloids and just wait to see how this all plays out. I am trying to stick with what we know for sure:

They are living seperately most of the time.

They are not traveling together right now.

They both apear to be involved with the children in varying degrees.

They both CARE about the PR to a certain extent. (both talked to People- right?)

Neither is publicly claiming to love the other at the moment.

Jon is spending time with other females. We don't know what the extent of those relationships are.

Kate is spending time with KATE. Steve is a part of her life and is on the payroll. We don't know that anything else is going on.

There is little else that we know for sure. We know what TLC and the tabloids say. We know what Jodi and Kevin say and they were only repeating what Jon told them.

As long as the mystery remains and people give a rat's a$$ what is happening, the ratings will continue to soar. I have to admit that I have been just as interested in their marital woes and right now I am chastising myself. WHO CARES? I care about those babies, I pray they are going to come through this ok. Right now they are surrounded by people to look after them and I hope that they are never left with just Kate. Jon and Kate had a crappy marriage from the get go. We all knew that. It's going the way of 1/2 the marriages in this country and they can only blame themselves.

As long as we continue to buy into the PR that is being spoon fed to us then the cycle will continue. I am not pointing a finger at anyone here except myself. It's just a thought I wanted to put out there....

Jon and People Cover Story:

I think the reason why Jon gets so "heated" when asked about exploitation of the kids is because deep down he knows that it is true.

Sort of like Kate's comments regarding her allegations with Mr. Grey.

Jon's lack of action and comments of "watch the show" make me realize he's just as lost and money hungry as Kate is.

Their site has been down for at least a week. Interesting, isn't it? The message you get when you go to their site is "exceeded bandwidth," which means that it is being bombarded with hits - so many that the site cannot handle all of them, so it goes down. This is a very untechnical explanation from me as a non-techie."

Michelle said...

Well it appears there are 2 types of pap's in the Gosselin's life. Those she wants to take the pictures and those she doesn't. She must be afraid of something as SOOOOOO many pictures of her being the "perfect" mother are now beginning to surface. I call BS on her not wanting the cameras following her around. She is hungrier than ever to be in the spotlight. What a witch. So thankful we don't watch this show.

Another note...

the kids are very comfortable around Steve as he has been a fixture far longer than most of us assume.

And it's nice of her to out the "babysitter" in the Hate approved Pap photos.

She is totally off her rocker. I wonder how much people get paid to read this board and report back to Camp Hate. She clearly knows what is being said. Someone needs a life.

RE: moving to NC

You all may be on to something there. NC does do some filming in Wilmington (One Tree Hill) and while they have laws I am sure, maybe they are less stringent than those in PA.

That said...remember, there is an ongoing investigation in PA and the working hours for the kids although TLC (the lesser channel) insists they have done everything by the book, they were quick to get out of town even leaving before the twins got done with school. have to wonder about it all. Clearly no one involved in this train wreck is thinking.

I for one am tired of going to the store and seeing them on the cover of everything. I just flip the magazine around so no one can see it. I figure it's my little way of helping the kids and reducing their publicity. So what if the magazines don't sell. That after all is the point. anyone else with me on this one?

I can't believe that anyone could possibly respect or support Jon, or have even an ounce of faith that he's going to "help the kids", after he whores himself out to People (same as Kate) and is seen frolicking around wearing tacky Ed Hardy ($$$$!!!!) hoodies (and an earring, ew!) and driving around in a sportscar.

He also said he doesn't think the kids are being exploited, and smirked "you'll have to read about it in People!" at a tabloid when asked about it. He's playing into this media circus just as bad as Kate.

The funny thing is...Kate is gone to NC with the kids...so that's why Jon is there...when Kate comes back, unless they are still filming...Jon will go back to wherever he really lives/sleeps...whether its on the Konpound or elsewhere.

He is at the house smiling for the cameras thinking we are all suckers while Kate is vacationing with her live in Boyfriend...all the while letting TLC film to their hearts content all her staged bikini shots on the beach and exploiting her kids day after day.

I believe they really do think they've got us fooled. They are the worst actors ever.

Maybe GWOP and the other sites should shut down comments for a week. I wonder what would happen? I would guess some BIG and FAKE news that would make everyone crazy.

I also find it interesting on the celeb sites J&K pics don't get many comments.

Not sure when that episode will air or if they will mention it on J&K+8, but I think it'd be funny to watch.

Lisbeth- you and I are on the same page. I agree with you 100%. I posted something about people mocking her high school year book pictures and her bikini pics but I don't know if it came through. IMHO when we start to focus on the silly superficial things we lose some credibility.

Kate can wear designer clothes or Kmart specials, it makes no difference. What matters to me is the happiness and emotional security of those kids.

Terra said...

the national inquirer is reporting that they have video of Jon with Glassman's daughter in a restaurant on 5/24 and that friends report that they have been seeing each other regularly and secretly.

Just Sayin' said...

i hope jon burns in hell for spending 2000K on the shopping spree that he took "Babe" on.

*******************
It wasn't "babe" shopping with him. It was Dr. Glassman's wife and daughter. We don't know that John spent any of the $2000 on either woman, as the wife and daughter of a plastic surgeon can surely afford their own purses and such.

Not that I think Jon ought to be spending $2000 a pop at the mall on himself, either. They have no right to spend money so freely and then claim that they have no choice but to do the show in order to support their kids.

phylly3 said...

If I were Jon, it would break my heart to see my children interacting in pictures with another man while on vacation with their mother. It is one thing to move on with your life if a marriage is broken and not fixable, but to involve the children is just not an option.

aunt mrytle' said...

Was Kate and the tups filmed on a private stretch of beach for each unveiling of Kate's new bikinis? There are no chairs, other beach goers, no other beach gear except the props being offered by Kate/kids. Mr. Gray is always just off camera in case a wave might attack.
Is Kate hinting for a job in modeling swimwear, because she sure acts like it with all the posing and/or fake crap.
TLC should be ashamed of themselves promoting the downfall of a family and such narcissism.
Katie-honey, they've lied...you are naked. Now put your clothes on and get on home with those young 'uns.

silimom said...

Jennifer D. -

Wow. That was a great post and you nailed a lot of things I've been trying to articulate for myself. I don't watch the show anymore but I do find myself coming to GWOP a lot to check in on all the latest goings on. Given that we know that Jon, Kate and their teams check this site based on how many issues that are brought up here are suddenly addressed on the show, I've been questioning "Am I contributing to the exploitation of these kids?" I know the arguments - someone has to advocate for the kids, even if GWOP went away the show would go on. And yet...

Much of the discussion here isn't kid focused but is speculation about Jon and Kate. And I participate in it regularly too. But are we indirectly feeding their egos and convincing TLC to continue? I guess I'm just feeling burnt out and not sure the best way to help the kids. I don't know why this train wreck is so engossing but it is. I'm sure there's a bit of voyeurism and being judgemental, i.e. I may have my moments but at least I'm not Kate. I don't exploit my kids and I'm a better parent even on my worse days. It's also the fact that I am
always amazed at how inheritantly messed up human beings can be. For all the best we can be the worse describes imagination at times.

Thanks for letting me vent. I'm still not sure what the right thing to do here is but I'll figure it out.

Mods, you do an awesome job.

Laurie said...

OH NO KATE, your secret recipe is out! I was just a the grocery store and one of the magazines (Family Circle or Good Housekeeping) has the flag cake on the cover....I wonder if they asked her permission to use HER recipe.....smirk, smirk, nudge, nudge!

Joan said...
Is anyone else getting really sick and tired of Jon and Kate even more so than usual?
***********************************
YES YES YES !!!!!

I'm hoping also that the over-exposure will work against them rather than for them. They're just not likeable, are they?

Courtney Cloud said...
I am really sad. I don't know who's right or whose wrong. I know it's easy to look at Kate's very controlling personality and just dump all of the blame on her. I still can't believe how careless Jon is being with his actions. I feel like every I see any interview or anything with him that he is done. I know that Kate may have ulterior motives in staying but he is just done. I am so so sad. My husband and I have watched this show since it's started. We have been married for almost six years. We recently loss our baby after I went into pre-term labor around the 6 months mark. Thing like this situation that we are living in make you see the world and things in a whole different light. I know that there are a ton of things to gripe about and complain about with Jon and Kate but I think the real discussion should be over how horrible it is to watch a family break apart. I am sad for Kate for Jon and for all of those kids. I really hate it. I am praying that reconciliation can happen. Please remember this when you post stuff about Kate wearing a bikini...that stuff really doesn't matter.

Thanks so much -

Mystical is Mystified said...

I cannot believe Kate's blog commentary. lol Two points I will discuss.....

Kate wrote: "On the first day, the sand was very amusing, and it took a bit to remind them that sand is absolutely washable...once we are done and return to the house. Collin had a particularly difficult time adjusting to the sand and its ability to enter each and every crease, fold and surface."
~~~~
She seems proud of this it seems. I think it's sad and disturbing. I guess the kids can still hear Kate saying, "DO NOT GET STAINS OR DIRT ON YOURSELF OR YOUR CLOTHES"
~~~~
Then Kate writes, "****Disclaimer: No sand crabs, children, camera crew, or even paparazzi were injured in the making of this blog (or "show" for that matter!) All hermit crabs were safely and peacefully returned to the ocean before lunch on the fifth day...and I wish I could say the same thing about the beyond obnoxious paparazzi, but no such luck! :("
~~~~
Okay, so the paparazzi actually rode the private ferry each day back and forth to Bald Head Island....a very exclusive expensive beach area just to film Kate? NO CARS are even allowed on this island, only golf carts or bikes (the pedaling kind). lol Maybe they did....but, I am suspicious about this because ALL OF THE PICTURES are very good and ALL OF THE WEBSITES AND MAGAZINES are using the SAME PICTURES that were taken each day by the same photographer....a hired one I bet.

Also, there's a pic of the real Kate - yelling at one of the kids.

Actualy - to be honest - these are the most relaxed - good pictures I've seen of her. She finally seems to be enjoying herself vs. posing (IMHO)

BMWoP said...

Awwwwwwww....Looky at Kate on Radar Online. Pretending to play with her kids. Gosh, I so wish I could be like her. She's such an awesome ( cough ) mom.

Now you know that hefer is hating every second of playing tag with those kids. She's doing some major damage control to bash that "Mom To Monster" Us Magazine cover. All those photos are so contrived, it's laughable.

On another note, how the heck many new bathing suits did she get for this production? I've counted 5 different ones so far.

Vicki said...

Kateismentalwreck said...
I am a psychiatric nurse specialist and I just wanted to voice my thoughts on the Kate & Jon & 8 situation.
--------------------------------
Your post chilled me to the bone. I am scared for those poor children.

I wonder how many times, how many blogs, how many threads, how many thousands of people now use the descriptive adjective of "poor" when it comes to the kids and it has absolutely NOTHING to do with lack of money but everything to do with pity.

Sue Ellen said...

From what I understand, the kids have a bodyguard and Kate has a bodyguard. So, perhaps the guy in the orange polo is the kids bodyguard. I find it kind of weird that six kids would have one bodyguard. But we all know that Kate's boobyguard/bodyguard/boyfriend is more than just a bodyguard.

Chris said...

Pony,

Thanks for the link to the way back machine. I didn't read every week, because I got so sick of the "begging" and the word words terrible hardships. I kind of felt a little offended about how they begged for so much in a prayer.

It was interesting how they were begging for a book publisher for MB. Hmm...I always thought sponsors, the show, the publisher came and offered J&K things...they never asked for any of it!

I Am Outraged said...

Countrydeb said...
With all the things that have been said about Kate and how she treats her kids she sounds alot like Joan Crawford. Maybe when Cara & Mady are older they'll write a book about "Mommy Dearest".
*******************************
Yeah, I agree, but who helps them in the meantime? Is there no hope? No one can intervene? A damaged and twisted childhood is something only the rare adult can ever get past. My father-in-law was forced to sleep in a basement with a dirt floor while stepmom and her kids got the nice, upstairs bedrooms. But it was nearly a hundred years ago. Surely, today, in this day and age, especially with people like Jon and Kate who are outted, can children not have better protection than this?

Joan said...

MelanieP said:
I'm disgusted with the current ads being shown...the one for American Chopper where Jon makes a comment about "it's nice to have guy friends, we all know I have mostly female friends...
------------------------------

I agree! I said before they seem to be getting very arrogant and my opinion of Jon has changed. For a while he was kind of keeping in the background and now when he finally decides to speak up he is acting pretty cocky. That statement above and his telling the photographer to read People and watch the show was ridiculous. There was also a recent picture of him at home and usually he is looking mad about someone taking his picture but this time he is looking right at the camera and smiling.

JJ said...

Jennifer D, flawlessly said. I think a lot of posters let their imaginations run wild and their speculations are often states as fact. You are seeing everything for what it's worth and what is clear without attaching a theory to it or making assumptions.

I also wonder about Steve and this "affair" - both of what you said about Jon knowing and if he wanted him gone he'd be gone, and he's been with the family as far back as the first trip to Utah. It doesn't add up.

SpotsInTheDark said...

Thank you to whoever said it isn't necessary to knock down the babysitter because of her weight. Comments like that, in my opinion, are extremely petty. I hate when women judge other women because of weight. People can wear whatever they want, right? Also, I wear sheer cover-ups at the beach. It's completely appropriate. It's a beach, not church.

If Kate's purpose in getting pictures taken in a bathing suit and going to the beach was to detract from other issues, she's being successful. I think comments about her bathing suits and the babysitter's weight are proof of that. So, while I'm not a fan of Kate, well done to her or to whoever recommended it to her.

cassandrau said...

Where are the pics of Kate and the nanny?

AnneS said...

Instead of going to North Carolina this would have been a good time for Jon and Kate to be home with the kids as a family and trying to work things out.

They didn't need to go to NC. At the age the kids are now they would have had just as much fun being at home playing in the new pool, riding bikes, running around all those acres of land, having picnics etc. Not to mention they could have had BOTH parents around.

Of course, why do that when you can go to NC and get perfectly staged shots of Kate the new and improved bikini clad beach luvin Mom frolicking with her kids.

As we all know, this is a hugh sacrifice Kate is making but she is only doing it for her kids. "It's all about the kids"

Lets not be ridiculous about this either, finally the kids look like they are having fun and enjoying themselves. Even it Kate is doing it just for the publicity at least the kids are enjoying themselves and thats what matters.

Why is www.sixgossleins.com down? Has this been down for a while.

TLC had set up a corporate site for the show and the six gosselins url was redirected to it. It looks like the TLC site was placed off line either by corporate dictate or the traffic is too heavy with spammers

Why would he be gone? Kate runs the show, in every way. If Kate refused to have Steve replaced, what could Jon do about it? Even if nothing was going on but Kate refused to get rid of Steve, I doubt that as vice president of his security firm Steve is going to give up his cushy $1600 a day assignment because Jon objected, not as long as Kate still wanted him there as her bodyguard.

Huh? So you're supposed to move on and abandon the children? I really don't understand your point. Are you opposed to second marriages when there are children involved?

pretty is as pretty does said...

I agree those most recent photos of her cavorting with the kids were staged. The PR people, jeeze Kate herself read all the blogs and message boards . She is trying to package herself for her future tv career remember. Just yesterday I was on a sheeple site (covertly trying to get the word out) they were saying " why isn't she playing" "Why wear a bikini if you are not getting in the water, why isn't she happy & laughing " boom today playing, laughing in the water. Literally if you got enough people to post things like "playing in the water would make her seem like a good mom " she would be doing it. I can see the gears in her head moving. Obviously mothering does not come naturally to her.

Payson48 said...

When the whole family was in Utah Kate spent her time at the spa because she "wasn't an outdoor girl" yet NOW SHE IS? Looks like Jon has a camera guy all his own too!! This could turn into 2 seperate shows for TLC !!

Momof2 said...

Nice to see her "playing" with the kids instead of sexting, er texting the bodyguard. Someone must've told her to....instead of "posing" for the cameras. Funny HOW MANY photos they are releasing from their "vacation". Those kids don't get a break...EVER.

Jana said...

Thanks Takenin for the link to the TMZ pic. I laughed at the caption:

"And nothing says intimidation like cargo shorts and mandals."

Mandals! My new fav word of the day :) and a hearty shout out to Steve, the opportunist in mandals!

stopthemadness said...

I honestly doubt Steve neild is having an affair. It is his JOB to be a bodyguard. He has an impressive past and I doubt he'd risk his entire career and reputation just to "get with kate".

He knows what she is like, he's been around for a long time.

I doubt anyone would give up all that for Kate Gosselin.

UsedToBeAFan said...

I was just looking at todays pictures on justjared of Jon and the twins. I love that he doesn't insist that they dress alike when they are off the Konpound!!

Reenie0912 said...

I was starting to side with Jon through all this. But after reading the People magazine article, I think he's just as much a moron as Kate. When asked about his marital issues, he says, "it's a private matter". Private?? Really? Does he even know what private means? You can't put yourself and your family in a reality show for 4 years, show potty training, showering your kids, tummy tucks, hair transplants, dental visits, etc., and then answer questions regarding your marriage by saying it's private. Jon is having a difficult time with being on TV. And he's an adult. Imagine the difficulties, and confusion in the childrens minds! They're 5 and 9! When hearing about their marriage imploding, I thought that now that Jon is free from Kates grasp, he would step up, hire a lawyer, STOP FILMING, and take care of his children. He didn't have to sign up for a 5th season. He could've went to court to stop Kate from having the kids filmed. But he agreed to another season, taping 40 more episodes! 40! I don't feel sorry for these people at all. It's true what they say, money can't buy happiness. And Jon and Kate and even the children, look miserable. I don't see a happy ending for these two selfish, money-loving, greedy idiots. And, unfortunately, I don't see a happy ending for those 8 beautiful children.

Reality TV writers said...

Prior to the KONtroversy there was a strike by the Writers Guild and whether reality TV writers were included in the union. I thought this was worthwhile to share as it shows there are other organizations that don't see the difference between scripted TV and reality TV.

By extension, then, this could further show how the young children are being exploited by the corporate giant Discovery Communications and the production company.

from 2007 December

"Allow us to pause for the uninitiated. Reality shows have writers? Wait -- aren't these shows supposed to be unscripted? Don't they just film whatever happens to fly out of the mouth of Flavor Flav or Nicole Richie or Prince Lorenzo Borghese?

Well, not exactly. Many of these programs are "written" in the editing room by "story producers" who string together hours of footage into some sort of recognizable narrative, frequently with little regard for, um, reality. Supposedly spontaneous events are staged or restaged, chronologies adjusted. Editors routinely use "frankenbites," out-of-context quotes that illustrate points the speakers never intended to make. And yes, contestants have been known to claim they were fed lines and told how to react on camera."

amy said...

The Grosselins are well aware that their marriage is unravelling very publicly and they have chosen to keep it public because they are too greedy to stop the madness..too selfish to think of what this is doing to their kids..I lost any shred of respect I had for Jon when he was quoted 'watch the show'..in other words..keep watching us sell out our kids so we can fund a lifestyle we refuse to give up. Jon can pretend he is all macho and one of the guys while he is paid to hang out with the American Chopper guys, but he sure isn't fooling me..he is very weak and his defiance about keeping his life private is very hypocritical..if he can have his kids most private moments be public then he has no right to ask for privacy and both Kate and Jon should be truly ashamed of themselves as parents..the Grosslins are no better than beggars and the most appalling thing to me is that they bite the very hand that feeds them..they have distain for the fans, the media yet without them they would have no new dishwasher, trips, motorcycles etc..this deep undercurrent of ingratitude and selfishness is going to backfire on them bigtime

Im wondering if Steve is in the master bedroom and thats why Kate told the children that they were never allowed in her room

Jacsamic I agree, in the pics she has no makeup, her hair looks like it was wet from the water...almost like a normal mom at the beach.

Interesting how we all have opinions about her then we see what we think the very next few days, hmmmm...

pretty is as pretty does said...

That can't be a spray on tan, she is using a bed. I have tried to use spray on at the beach and between, the sunblock, sand and water I start to molt and look like I have vitalago. I don't care is she fries what kind of a nurse would tan?

Kate Most Polarizing Spokesperson Ever said...

I was wondering what Kate's next career would be if TLC cancelled the show. It turns out her options are more limited -- Kate Gosselin isn't such a great choice for a spokesperson after all.

A brief article about the public relations stunt generated hundreds of responses—not because consumers liked or disliked the idea of promoting a coupon book with a live event, but rather because some people absolutely hate Gosselin.

UsedToBeAFan said...

Honestly, I am confused about a lot of the dates, also. I don't think we really need to make a timeline to sort it all out but....

I was looking on TMZ and saw the picture of them coming out of Mr. Chow on March 24th. Were the kids with them in CA? I thought they had "a rule" about that? Then he went to Utah and she went home to bake her own cake all by her lonesome? WTH? She doesn't mention that they were together on a trip just days before. And then when did the Dan Diego trip take place with Mady?

They sure do seem to spend a lot of time flying back and forth across the country...

k8shm8 said...

The bottom line is this: Whether or not you think Kate and Jon have exploited the children up until now is irrelevant to the fact that NOW, they should absolutely 100% pull the plug on the show. Everyone knows they are having marriage problems, most likely divorce, and they don't look like they're trying too hard to patch things up. By continuing with the show now, they are forcing their children to go through possibly one of the most unpleasant, life-altering things they will ever go through in their lives (their parents divorce) in public on national television. THAT is unconscionable.

Merry Mary said...

Christianity Today has printed several articles about the Gosselins. I thought the one below was interesting. What a difference a few months can make in the life of a family. I can't help but wonder if they will also print one about how the family has changed.

Extreme Family
Jon & Kate Plus Eight is at home with faith.
Todd Hertz | posted 11/03/2008 09:47AM

I am a 31-year-old male—not exactly the demographic for the network of What Not to Wear and Say Yes to the Dress. But I am fascinated by TLC's Jon & Kate Plus Eight (Mondays, 9/8c, 4 stars).

Thanks to infertility treatments, Jon and Kate Gosselin have 8-year-old twins and 4-year-old sextuplets. The parents are quirky, the kids adorable. What keeps me watching is awe at how this family circus operates. These are not the staged scenarios so typical of reality TV (try scripting six 4-year-olds). This is Christmas shopping, picnicking, and traveling. It's real enough to relate to, but extreme enough to make it a spectator sport.

It is said that you can tell who a person really is by observing them on a bad day—well, this show is an open window into Jon and Kate. The stress, craziness, and exhaustion take a toll; they often bicker and snap at one another. Kate's strong personality is the center of debate among viewers: for some, she's a domineering witch, to others, a take-charge former nurse who gets things done.

Jon blogged that it's hard to watch episodes where "we are too harsh to each other or the kids or we don't react as we should. [But it's] a reality show—you get the good, the bad, and the ugly. Many people have been helped by our honesty, so are we sorry that certain things are aired? Never."

What comes through is a portrait of parents who love their kids—and each other. You see it when they playfully tease one another during interviews. These debriefing sessions are not just narration, but provide moments when this time-starved couple can process what has been happening with their family.

The Gosselins attend an Assemblies of God church, and their first priority in their family mission statement is "to show God's love to others"—a likely reason they have let the viewing public into their private lives. They also speak at churches, have released a book (Multiple Blessings) with Zondervan, and run a website (sixgosselins.com) that includes prayer concerns, devotionals, and Scripture.

Not many people face the challenges of this growing family, but most can appreciate the ups and downs of trying to grow faith in the midst of hectic circumstances.

Sidney said...

There is a video of Jon walking along the fence of his yard "cleaning up" as he goes. (Picking up little sticks or something that must have really been bugging him for a long time).

He is wearing a red jacket with what looks like it has Asian letters and emblems on it.

But how funny, he chose to "clean up" the property along the fence exactly when there are paparazzi with cameras hanging out along same fence.

But he has GOT to pick up those offensive little sticks and it can't wait another minute!

But anyway, when they ask about the family, Jon tells them they are dealing with their problems privately and that they will have to watch the show.

But those nasty little sticks are now gone and he can quit obsessing about them. That nasty job is over.

Jane said...

Concerning the dogs:

I am surprised that the Humane Society would just take someone's statement by phone as the truth. I know it is a problem in this case because they will never be able to actually catch the kids hurting the animals. Does this mean someone can beat their dog and as long as you tell them that it is not true they don't worry about it?

I loved the statement that was supposedly put out by Jon. The usual excuse - "his words were taken out of context". How many times do we hear that statement from people after the fact. I really think that statement was written by someone else.

IrishGal said...

So I recently thought of a topic I would like to bring up to all of you. Many of the sheeple have always liked to justify the cameras in the Gosselins' house by saying that if they stopped filming, the kids would have to go to that evil place called daycare. I have two questions: Do you think they would have been better off in daycare, and do you feel like with having countless nannies, they sort have been in daycare all this time?

Personally, I feel like these children may have gotten better care in daycare than at home. We have seen the yelling, the favortism, the baby-ing, the lack of peer interaction, etc, they have lived with in their home for over the past two years. Though this is disputable, perhaps in a good daycare the sextuplets may have recieved more attentive care for most of the day. However, while Kate has been on this book tour and Jon has been residing above the garage, I think there is no doubt that these kdis have been in a "daycare" sort of enviornment. Spending their entire days with nanny-after-nanny, the kids seem to spend little time with Kate; something that she often prides herself over.

I don't think Kate ever really cared about getting to be a stay-at-home mom. She wouldn't be on a trip once a week if she felt it wasn't in the best interest of her and her alone. To think I once genuinely thought she didn't quit her nursing job so she could be with her children.

Thoughts?

k8shm8 said...

And to add to my previous point...if this marriage crisis is all just a PR ruse, then I think that's even worse. They're humiliating their children on national TV by acting like a$$&^*s just for money. (For the children, of course).

If you haven't gone to look at this article in iparenting, you should. The last paragraph or so talks about how they try to do all the work of parenting their kids by themselves, because they want their kids to remember them in their present.

Such slime.

Hi GWoP'ers!!

I just recently found out that my Mom is on Bald Head Island for 2 weeks for a family wedding! I immediately called her & told her that Kate Gosselin, the kids & her entourage were there. Her response "Oh s**t!" LOL. She said Bald Head Island is VERY exclusive & people do not like their privacy being put on display like it currently is. I'm sure Kate is making no friends by cavorting around the way she is.

My Mom did say she'd keep her eyes peeled & report anything that the cameras or paparazzi don't catch (ie interaction with Mr.Grey), so if she does cross the QB, I'll report in!!

Check this out! Excellent article. Things just keep changing.

"When the work involved with the show gets extra hard, I always try to think of the good things, and the fact that we can work from home essentially is definitely one of the hugs blessing that has come with our show!" Gosselin says.

Soon, Gosselin will add "author" to her resume, as she coauthors the book, Multiple Blessings (Zondervan, 2008), along with her friend Beth Carson.

One thing Kate feels strongly about is that she and Jon do most of the work themselves, which might be atypical for families of multiple multiples. "On days that we aren't filming, we rarely have anyone here helping – and that's the way we like it," Gosselin says. "We want to raise our own kids. We know we have to accept some level of help, but we accept it as little as possible. I want our kids to remember us as being very present."

Oh, she's covering up now! She must have gotten the memo about her cellulite thighs on the cover of the new US. 90 minutes a day on the treadmill my ass! lol.

Tigerfan said...

Perhaps it is just me...but I am deeply disturbed and find it highly inappropriate the photo of the girl tup embracing the leg of the Steve, the 'body gaurd'. Clearly, Steve's role in this family extends far beyond that of security services as the closeness and intimacy depicted in the photograph. Additionally, it deeply saddens me that the Gosselin children have been forbidden by Kate to develop any form of lasting closeness and bond with their maternal grandparents and extended family (ie, aunts ,uncles and cousins) but she openly ENCOURAGES such intimacy between her children and their 'body gaurd'. I see nothing wrong with encouraging the children to respect and appreciate their elders and individuals in the postion of providing 'services' for the family, however, I find it highly inappropriate that these children are being subjected to, what appears IMO to be a 'replacement daddy figure'. As much as Kate would like nothing more than to distance and disconnect herself from JON, the fact will always remain that HE is the father of her eight children and there exists BIOLOGICAL boundaries which should be and must be respected and preserved and not manipulated or scrutinized, at the expense of the children, in an attempt to further one's own self serving agenda.

snarky said...

Oh no, this photo wasn't staged at all! I hate the attention so I think i'll dress all of my little "employees" in matching outfits and line them up, because, um, that way they'll "blend."

http://justjared.buzznet.com/gallery/photos.php?yr=2009&mon=06&evt=gosselin-tag&pic=kate-gosselin-tag-06.jpg

She is seriously psychotic. The matching outfits business is just sick.

Just saying said...

I'm not saying there's not something inappropriate or unhealthy (marriage-wise) going on with the bodyguard but it wouldn't surprise me if there's nothing sexual. (I'm sorry for all those negatives strung together.) He's paid to do whatever she's scheduled...no arguments, no dragging his feet, or complaining. To someone like Kate, it's a dream come true and, if it's all professional, there's no expectation that she be nice to him or worry about his needs.

That being said, if Jon did want to work on his marriage, there's less incentive for her to make an effort. She's learned that she can manage the physical demands without him just fine. If Kate's outrage at the affair rumors with the bodyguard is not staged, Jon's suspicions could still be justified by that fact that his wife seemed to pull away when Mr. Grey came on the scene. He felt he was "replaced" because his wife seemed to be less dependent on him and his approval.

Anyone else thinks this was staged in public to show that the kids have "fun" and play with their mom. I can't think of the last time where she was playing with them.



I was being facetious. Maybe she is legitimately giddy at this point in her life, but I do believe it's all staged for the cameras. I believe all of the pictures this week were carefully arranged. TAKE YOUR KIDS HOME, KATE. Oh yeah, you can't pimp them out there right now. shucks.

I've heard there is some major editing with it, if it is shown as it really happened, then that is a CLEAR sign of someone with Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Jon, Jodi, and Kevin could use a diagnosis of NPD (make her get tested) to try to get primary custody and mandatory supervised visits.

*******************
As a psychologist with specializing in psychological assessment, I have to say that the clip described - even if it happened as described - is not a "clear" sign of NPD. And testing wouldn't be necessary to diagnose a personality disorder, nor would it be particularly useful. There are no true personality tests. There are personality assessment instruments that can be used in addition to the information gathered from doing a detailed developmental history, but there is no "testing" that can diagnose any psychiatric disorder. History of signs, symptoms, and impairment are always the basis for making a diagnosis.

Additionally, I believe that the guidelines for posting here warn against diagnosing anyone we're discussing.

jojow said...

Someone mentioned Kate getting pregnant....I absolutely think this will happen. She will marry "someone", maybe Mr. Grey, and have the "one" baby she's been wanting. She will call it an "huge miracle".

It will be so incredibly sad for the kids. If Cara and Mady were replaced by the tups, the tups will be replaced by this new baby. Kate won't give them the time of day.

I've given some thought - too much really - to Jon and Kate's future. Poor Jon - I'm not sure he ever has a chance of getting married again. First, he has 8 kids. Who wants to be a step-mom to 8 kids. Second, his ex is Kate. Can you IMAGINE what kind of ex Kate will be, especially, when it comes to the kids. She will go ballistic over every little thing the step-mom does: how she dresses them (horror of horrors if they aren't matching), their hair, a tv show they watch... She'll be just awful. And, third, Jon can't have any more kids. He's a young guy. It will be hard for him to find a young woman near his age who doesn't want to have kids. Unless she already has 8 of her own too:-)

I feel so bad for the kids. They are going to be stuck between some rough stuff.

BTW, I live in NC, adjacent to Carrboro, actually and I have friends in Wilmington. If Kate moves here, I'm going to try to find her, hang out nearby and watch. I'd love to see hoe she really is with her kids.

Did anyone notice in the pics that are on extratv that 50/53 -- Kate's sister Christen's baby pic looks just like one of the tups? Collin I think.

And is it me, or does it look like Kate has a tattoo under her bikini?

imho said...

Un-effin-believable. This is the woman who admits that she never plays with her kids. Now after recent postings on this site that all of her "vacation" pictures have been posed she suddenly is running around like she's on a high dose of oxycontin. EVERY THING WE MENTION on this site, she plays out. Her kids are probably just flabbergasted. Who IS this person? To those who are saying, "well at least the kids are having fun", remember that what goes up, must come down, and as soon as the cameras were gone, they were passed off to their individual handlers and she was back in bed with the boyfriend.

Personally, I can't wait for Kate's cookbook to be released. I can't wait to see just how badly it bombs.

Can you even imagine how many people are going to scrutinize and research each and every recipe for plagiarism?

It will be mocked from here to Mars!

There just aren't that many sheeple left who will dare being associated with Kate in any way, shape, or form.

I certainly do hope you are right. Those sheeple are pretty deeply entrenched. They aren't going to go out without lots of kicking and screaming.

"Families are places for little people and big people to grow. In the heart of a family, we all make mistakes, seek and find firgiveness, and learn to be more like God. It's very difficlut to do all of that with a camera trained on you." - Elizabeth Foss in The Catholic Herald.

Wise words from a wise mother of 9. Kate and Jon should be forced to read them every day until they understand them and learn from them.

I've been looking at the beach pix posted on JustJared. What in the world are those ugly things the boys are wearing? Why didn't Kate buy the girls' swimsuits that fit? One of the girls, Leah I think, has a suit that is at least two sizes too small. Her bottom cheeks are hanging out. That can't be comfortable for her. And why in the world are the little girls always in dresses when they are away from the beach? It's a vacation. They're at the beach. For heavens' sake, get them some shorts or jeans and tee shirts nd let them just relax and have fun!

Wow! Now I feel better after that rant! Sorry guys.

TOO FUNNY!! I made that 14 years ago while in my last year of college. My mom and sister came to visit me for a "girls" weekend. We had access to fresh from the farm berries and made this. It was a ton of fun! and a great bonding weekend. How old was Kate in 1995? Boy she created the Flag cake when she was 19 years! lol

IrishGal, I concur. It has always made me fume that when they have these "family meetings" and ask the kids if they want to continue filming or go to Day Care, well, what do you THINK they'd say?? I would assume they have an innate fear of the unknown, and would choose the familiar! Why can't Dad work the day shift and Mom work the night shift? THAT would be in the best interest of the kids, in my opinion. She's a nurse, they do have night shifts!

sickofkate said...

I've read a couple times here about the tups and self-induced vomiting, migraines, etc.

What is the story behind all of this? How does anyone know about it?


We know from watching the show, Jon and Kate also mention this on the show or various church talks about the Hannah's headaches, Leah's vomiting. You can see Collin's rapid blinking/rocking back and forth on the sextuplets' 5th BD party when he is sitting on the picnic table. Mady has shown signs of distress, Cara has shown signs of sadness and/or depression.
They have shown Kate getting freaked out by the crowd of cameras/people in the room. What makes her think that the kids wouldn't be stressed as well?
Let Kate have her talk show or Jon have his "R & D" in Utah...anything to give these kids some privacy and to keep people from viewing them like monkeys in a zoo. If Jon and Kate are so great, they should not need the kids to carry them anymore.

Article about the Humane Society investigating allegations of cruelty to the dogs.

I told them to be careful!!
---------------------------------

Thanks for that news. Another sad chapter in this mess.

You just can't go around making remarks like Jon did about how (badly) the dogs are treated in that house without it having an impact. He basically validated what viewers had feared from when the puppies were first brought home.

I swear...Kate in those ridiculous bikini photos...then Jon running off at the mouth about the dogs and then telling people they should watch his show or read his magazine feature if they want info...geez, it's enough to ruin my day. Everything about these people is what they can sell and what they can get from something or somebody. It's disgusting.

I try to think back to my early 30s and ask myself, "Was I so clueless at that age? Was I so self-involved that it clouded my bigger vision?" Thankfully, I had caring (unpaid) people around me at that age who would knock me gently off my high horse. Make me listen if I was being stupid.

The thing, among so many, that is really offputting, particularly right now is this almost pompous vibe both Jon and Kate give off...a sort of haughty swagger which is not one bit endearing when you'd think they'd be on their best behavior since they're really under a microscope. It can't hold up. They're either getting a load of really bad advice or are truly the most unadmirable people DEFINITELY not worthy of the attention they're getting from any of us.

pretty is as pretty does said...

Also if you do a public recors search on the internet for Mr. Gray/Steve he has established some type of residency in in MD and the other guess where Wernersvile, PA.
I know some people believe they are not having an affair. I disagree, he is away from his wife a lot. Men will be men, after a few drinks on vacation or before in a hotel room. it is not all that far fetched maybe it was friends with benefits to start or still is. I think they are doing it:)

Hambone said...

Jon said in People Magazine that Hannah won't let them cut her hair.

Wasn't there an episode where Hannah wanted her hair cut and Kate wouldn't allow it?

( Scratching head here in confusion. I think Jon and Kate need to meet and get their stories straight ).

KateStinks said...

One thing I don't understand after seeing all these pics in NC, is why is the family separated for so long? If they are "working" on their issues why aren't they together? I believe this is some kind of publicity stunt also. The show and Jon and Kate doesn't care if they get good or bad attention, it just wants the attention and viewers. If Kate didn't want to be a celebrity or followed by the "p people" she would go back home and work on her marriage and family instead of flaunting herself in a different bikini every day. It's all so fake.

I use to be a fan of the show when it first came on, than I started to dislike it but yes, I still watched to see the trainwreck but now I cannnot watch and I have not watched this season. The greed in this family is sickening, the way Kate mothers these children is terrible. Her poor kids are going to grow up being able to watch every flaw of their parents. These poor kids are unfortunately going to have issues later in life and Kate is too dumb too see it, she is too blinded by her greed. Her kids aren't going to care when the grow up if they lived in a million dollar home, had expensive cars, clothes or toys -- all they are going to care if they had a good childhood with two parens who were there for them and loved them unconditionally -- which Jon nor Kate have not been.

That kind of work is beneath Kate now. Actually, any kind of work is beneath her now. When she said they can never go back to how things used to be, she really means it. There is no way she will ever be an employee anymore. She likes th finer things in life now, including being the employer. Seriously, can you picture her taking direction from a superior in a work position once this freakshow ends? Both of them, really. Jon's just as bad now.

Kathleen said...

This whole thing would make a hilarious plot to a movie, maybe a Truman Show II.

The characters are living their lives 24/7 behind a camera, and everything they do is dictated by what people write about them on blogs. Like, the bloggers are the script writers and the Gosselins play it out on camera. A blogger steered reality show. In a small sense, this IS what is happening.

"Ok guys, the bloggers are hinting at a relationship with the bodyguard, so let's get it on, babay!!!!"

Sue Ellen said...

It's a good thing that Kate has something covering her bathing suit in those justjared pictures. Why does she always have a frown on her face? She will need some Botox injections soon. Is it me or are her thighs getting thicker? All of those pictures of her playing with the kids are just for show. I would like to know who is taking all those pictures.

Kate should really limit the amount of time that those kids spent in the sun. Even with really good sunblock, skin cancer can still happen.

Thank you for saying this. I appreciate your input very much.

I am not a Kate defender in any sense but sometimes I kind of "get" her....the sarcasm and the impatience. I am like that to a degree also. If people here ever saw me with my kids I bet they would say terrible things too.

For example:
I once overhead my daughter tell my son "You were mommy's little accident"...and I yelled into the room "Actually, if it weren't for good wine we wouldn't have any of you so I wouldn't go there if I were you."

That probably sounds terrible- right? Except that my kids are in their late teens/early 20's and our relationship has always been based on FUN. My daughter pretended to be horrified and I shrugged it off. My sons were rolling...and eventually we all cracked up. My point is that if you were to get that on camera you would probably call me a monster.

Biological boundaries? So if Jon had adopted the children instead of being their biological father, then this photo would be acceptable to you?

You're reading a whole lot into a picture of a child grabbing onto someone's leg.

She is totally off her rocker. I wonder how much people get paid to read this board and report back to Camp Hate. She clearly knows what is being said.



Whoever is monitoring this and creating the report that breaks down the comments is probably making about $20.00 an hour. The PR agency is probably charging the client (either TLC or Kate herself) about $45.00 per hour.

They are throwing all of these comments into an excel document, in a form called a media report and dissecting it by name, date, time posted, subject, client mention and finally, assigning a grade of negative, neutral or positive.

It is so obvious what is being done because with every deluge of comments on here about Kate and how she looks and interacts with the kids, the VERY NEXT DAY she tries to change her previously photographed behaviors.



In my opinion, one glaring PR problem is the damage ***** *****("Mr. Gray") is doing to the the reputation of the company he works for.

Prudential Associates is now the laughing stock of the security providers community.

The seemingly "Kate issued" photos of one of their head guys (Steve) fondling the head of one of Kate's kids while he watches her bend over in her bikini changed forever the public perception that company.

Ha! I can't believe Jon said that - the epi when Hannah wanted to cut her hair was pretty recent. He really does think we're stupid.

Someone speculated on here at the time (and I agree) that the girl tups had to keep their hair the way it was because (in Khate's mind) that's the way the public sees them/wants them to stay.

Nevertheless, I hope these little kids always just think of it as that wonderful day our mom played with us in the ocean. It will probably be an incredible memory for them and I hope it is. They deserve some wonderful "mommy memories."

If the children were not on public display and did not require a 'bodyguard' then perhaps no one would be reading into the the child grabbing onto Mr Nield's leg..I think that is a more of an issue than biological boundaries

Today's photos are really odd. I don't remember Kate ever playing with her kids. Nice to see the kids smiling. As one person said on the Just Jared site - she is not playing with the kids, she is playing to the camera. Interesting point.

Were they filming? The photos are just too perfect - if the paps were taking these photos, they would take photos of her hanging out in a chair while the not-a-nanny looks after the kids. Or, Kate screaming at the kids for getting sand or water on her.

All of a sudden no more bikini pics? They did not go over well, so now we are wearing a cover-up.

And, the blog. Where are the photos of this wonderful sand castle she built with the kids. It is so difficult to believe. Not to mention the complaint about the paps - she obviously wants everyone to research the photos that the fake paps are taking. One of those photos was taken from the water. You mean with all the security, they can't keep the paps from getting into the water and taking photos? If she wanted the paps to go away, she would not keep mentioning them.

The contrast between the twins' photos and tups' photos today was also interesting. They got photos of the tups smiling and having a great time and photos of the twins when they were not smiling.

All these photos are immediately fed to JustJared?

Makes you go hmmmmm......
