Do you love how the tide has changed? America is discovering what gwoper's have known for soo long!

anyone have a link to the complete article? i won't pay to read the magazine. i don't want to give j&K any additional money!

anohterPAmommy said...

Oh puke, I am so sick of these two losers. Kate is her very own biggest fan.

So...what's the REAL story?
==========

Gosselin's website, 8-8-05
(snipped) We finally purchased a van ourselves. It is a 2004 Dodge Sprinter Passenger Wagon. It is perfect for our family exactly 10 seats for all of us. There are some pictures of it under the heading "OUR VAN!!!"
http://web.archive.org/web/20050813235647/http://www.sixgosse

US Weekly:
Also during that time, when a friend of Jon's father donated a 14-passenger van to the family, Kate "never thanked him," says a source close to Jon. Instead, "she traded it in because she hated the color burgundy."

Not a FAN of Octomom but this is a nice little clip of Octomom bashing Kate

new picture up of Kate in her bikini. I just think it is inappropriate for her to dress like that in front of the kids and on camera

Elle Rose said...

Geez, Khate, why not just wear a thong? What a hoochie mama. http://justjared.buzznet.com/gallery/photoitemfull.php?yr=2009&mon=06&evt=bikini-gosselin&pic=kate-gosselin-beach-bikini-07.jpg

Another Enquirer article:

Arieslikekate said...

isn't this the article that quotes this GOSSELIN WITHOUT PITY blog?

I know I read this story last week when this magazine was mailed to my local library.

The tide has turned and Kate is the one who will be drowning... she created this little world for herself.

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

My goodness! That is SO funny. Nadya obviously despises Kate!

I can't stand to even look at Nadya and those lips bug me to death, but I endured just to see what one crazy mom says about another crazy mom!

I wish Kate could see how Nadya reacts to watching that video. It is when Dr Phil interviewed Kate about Nadya's big family.

TOO funny! Now if it were just not true, any of it. Poof -- away Nadya and Kate!

A Mother's Walk said...

I totally red the Octomom and her bash. It was sort of refreshing to know that she thinks Kate should mind her own business, but in the same thought I felt as if she was about to step into the same thing as Kate, w/o a man of course.

Advice said...

They are still on vacation? Do Mady/Cara not have school? Does she just take them out for weeks at a time during the school year? Is there not a law against that?

Dobzy said...

The picture of Kate in the National Enquirer? Those are not her Ta Ta's!

freethegosselin9 said...

I wonder if TLC knew about Kate's pictures of her youth coming out and decided to do the epi of her and Mady for damage control. After all, who can forget Mommy Gosselin making all her horrible faces and ugly comments about her own daughter's teeth.
Without the aid of braces, plastic surgery, liposuction, fake boobs, botox, bleach, make-up, bronzer, gels, potions and lotions...Kate still can't hide her ugliness. Look at her look for the camera again. No skinny helpers for Kate. It is all an ILLUSION with Kate, your perception of the this narcissist's reality.
Remember how she acted about the water and sand when Jon was with her. Remember how much fun he made it for the kids, but Kate is making it all about the photo shoot/matchy-matchy. She probably is telling the kids not to get dirty.

Advice said...

My exact thoughts. How long have they been there now? I know the first set of pix was on Sunday - but wasn't it said they went to NC for memorial weekend? That was last week - or have I mixed up my edited/cut/pasted news being fed to me :)

On top of - Kate definetely is aware of and cooperating with these recent photo ops. All are taken face-on- no walking away shots. All have a sand toy "prop";i.e. look I'm playing with my kids on vacation.

Compare Sunday's orange suit with today's black suit - same backdrop. Same style of prop. Same pose by log in sand.

Now if this was really paparazzi - you know there would be shots of her coming/going to/from the resort - sans makeup and perfection.

100% total photo op no doubt

Ms.Peach said...

I saw Access Hollywood is doing a blurb about Jon being in Utah with the Deanna during Kate's b-day. I seem to recall a while back that it was already reported that Jon was at a concert with Deanna. I think this is old news.

Does anyone out there think the timing of releasing that Jon was in Utah partying with Deanna while Kate was home during her b-day suspect? I think either TLC or someone through Kate was the source to make Jon look bad and everyone pity Kate.

TLC needs to keep the tabloid and tv entertainment shows talking about the couple to drive ratings.

littleangelkisses said...

Honestly the bikini shots don't bother me at bit. I am older than Kate and I wear one. Her expression isn't one of having fun though....

emptynester said...

I said it before and I'll say it again. The onslaught of bikini pics is a PR stunt to deflect from the real issues at hand - child exploitation and the state labor investigation. The PR people want the tabloids to talk about Kate's body, how she looks in her bikini ... anything but the really important stuff.

avidreader said...

Did anyone read the next story about how TLC wants to pimp out some more families? Totally disgusting!

UGH! said...

They are still on vacation? Do Mady/Cara not have school? Does she just take them out for weeks at a time during the school year? Is there not a law against that?

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

I read that the twins' school lets out tomorrow (6/3). Aside from missing MORE school so Queenie can show off her new "puppies" it also means that once again, Cara and Mady do not get to participate in fun end-of-year school activities. I still remember those last few days - lots of fun and excitement. But, THE SHOW MUST GO ON .

just wondering said...

It's all a photo op to keep Kate in the headlines and take the emphasis off of the kids.

anotherPAmom said...

The Enquirer photo makes me say- Too Much Information! Too Much Information! That bathing suit top exposes way too much!

thehazlettfamily said...

Who in the hell wears dangly earrings and a diamond necklace to the beach? Totally for the cameras. I grew up on the gulf coast of Florida and I would never wear jewelry to the beach. Only my wedding rings once I was married. You can tell she did not plan to go in the water or get down with the kids.

***********************************
Noticed something about Kate's eyes in her senior potrait in this radar online pictorial....and believe me, I'm not one to find excuses for her, her behavior, or anything else...but look at her right eye, it is smaller and it doesn't match the left eye, could this be why she wears that awful hanging curtain of hair over her RIGHT EYE??? To hide the fact that it doesn't match the left one??
On another note, want to take bets on the color of her bikini tomorrow?? (Orange and black are excluded) :D

Janeth said...

Radar online has a photo caption saying Kate is on vacation with 6 of the 8 kids, nanny and bodyguard. my guess is Mady and Cara are back home and in school and she is just there with her lover and the tups. Oh and the fat babysitter, cuz you gotta make sure she doesnt look better than you.

talklesssaymore said...

Maybe I'm crazy- but does it look like Kate got a boob job? Or at least a lift or something?

It's fine if she wants to wear a bikini, clearly she's not a conservative mother or she wouldn't wear mini skirts either...although it does throw a wrench into that whole conservative christian persona she was trying for. Maybe she thinks she'll get higher ratings for being a hot momma instead?

I mean I'm younger than her (and not a mom) and I wouldn't wear that in public, but there's a lot of things she does that I'd never do ;-)

FireMinstrel said...

Those yearbook pictures of Kate make me think of the old Degrassi Junior High series from the '80s.

Sue said...

Janeth said:

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

I feel so bad for that young woman (the not nanny or whoever she is). She probably didn't plan on being all over the internet in that outfit. I am not going to put the young woman down about her body as mine is not perfect.

Actually unless the young woman lives under a rock I guess she would know she was being filmed. Hmm.......maybe Kate paid her to take off her shirt and stand next to her for the "staged" pap pics. Anything to look good. At least the young woman has a waist! I know ugly of me

I understand what you are saying, but calling the babysitter fat is uncalled for. She looks normal to me. Lets leave the comments on topic and not pick on the hired help.

I was just stating a fact, she is a little on the fat side and her choice of clothing is as inappropiate as Kate's.

Com said...

I think the Babysitter is posing her another reality show.
Isn't that the get-up there wear at the beginning of "Biggest Loser?"

Seriously! Not trying to be mean -- I LOVE that show and this girl clearly knows she's being photographed.

They have their own FILM crew of at least a dozen people trailing them everywhere they go.

No...she's telling them not to get sand in their pants!!

(lol! as we all know...there is not such thing!)

JerseyShore said...

Interesting list. Boscov's Dept. store is a family owned store in the PA/NJ/DE area. They are going thru hard times now and could use a bailout. Hey Gosselins can you spare a dime or a loan to someone who was there when you needed help? Wouldn't that be something?

End the Exploitation said...

okay...i am NOT one to EVER read the national enquirer...EVER!
But I did look at the link posted here.

and this article may be the most accurate of any i have ever seen regarding kate's treatment of the kids.
here's a snippet from an insider they quote:

""It doesn't take long for the kids to notice that Mommy is mad, and all of a sudden, the happy kitchen full of noisy, laughing kids changes to a room of frightened teary-eyed children."

Now, let me tell you why.
Anyone who saw this week's Ace of Cakes episode - the owner, Duff, at one point yells playfully to the kids "quiet"...as they are all screaming and playing and yelling at the top of their lungs.... just having a rollicking good 'ol time....In A Kitchen!!

Then....DEAD SILENCE!!
It seemed as if the kids were suddenly horrified and frightened.
(and it was quite obvious they had been yelled like that before)

There is NO way that happens that instantaneously if it doesn't happen AT HOME!!!!!

I knew the moment I saw that -- that was yet another HUGE RED FLAG!!

Kate just laughed it off -- and ACTED surprised in her FAKE acting surprised sort of way -- which is as transparent as see-through glass.

There is no doubt in my mind, these kids are subjected to the worst kind of emotional and mental abuse imaginable.
I mean, the woman called her child "Awful and Horrible" point blank, right to her face, right on National TV Monday Night.

Who thinks that is OKAY?????

What are the Child Protective Services people waiting for????

The first of two episodes airing Monday brought in 5.5 million viewers while the second episode, airing directly after, brought in 6million viewers. Both shows were drastically down from the premiere, which brought in 9.8 million viewers as the TLC reality series' most watched show of all time.
********
5.5 million watched the first episode, 0.5 million more watched the second episode. More likely the same 5 million watched both episodes (but second episode added an additional half a million viewers). Get it?

SAHM said...

Not saying she is fat or anything but pointing out that skinny girls tend to have at least 1 "fat" friend (or in this case non-nanny) so that it makes them look better and skinner. OR... it could be a strategic move on Kate's part so that Jon didn't pull a Rob Lowe and sleep w/ the nanny.

Natalie said...

hazletts...i like to wear bling to the beach...always have.
to each his own on that.

i will say, i stopped wearing it snorkeling and scuba-diving after learning that sharks 'n such were attracted to my shiney, metal objects....whoa....lessen learned!

but still...it has no relection on her parenting skills.

the pimping however, does.
just imho.

as for the comment "curtain over the eye" -- good one.
But now i feel bad, too, because if that's true, i mean, who are we to criticize how she covers her insecurities.
i have always thought she had very, very pretty eyes.
i never noticed anything wrong and still think she has very pretty eyes.
too bad her personality makes everything else about her so ugly!

ugghh....fed up said...

so.... kate is not fooling anyone anymore.... look at these pics...

Pauper Princess said...

Did you see the new pics of Kate in her black bikini?

http://www.usmagazine.com/news/kate-gosselin-steps-out-in-another-bikini-200926

I'm sorry, but the not-a-nanny should NOT be in a bikini.

Catherine said...

Did anyone see Larry King tonight? They talked about Jon and Kate during a couple of segments. Funny how Larry thought Kate was so great the last time she was on, he didn't give any opinion this time.

Anyway, that lady who works for People (not sure if she did the Kate interview or is just a People spokesperson), she said that Jon is going to be on the cover of People this week. She wouldn't say much about it but I have a feeling that now they talked him into giving an interview too.

ArmyWife said...

Ok now.... are we all really going to nitpick about her wearing a bikini? I have two children and I wear one and will continue to wear a bikini until I no longer feel comfortable wearing it.
As for the eye- I looked at the pictures. If its not just how her head tilts then yeah I can see why she does her hair that way. I have that same eye condition. It is ptosis where the eyelid is droopy. I have been killing myself trying to figure out how to conceal that because it the only feature I am self conscious about.

Elilan said...

I'm wondering if these children have "coogan accounts" set up in their names. The accounts (named for child actor jackie Coogan who was famously swindled out of earnings by his own parents) ensure that 15% of the children's gross earnings are set aside until the children are 18. Kate has mentioned that the children now have, "college funds" but they are 1/10th of the "actors" appearing on each episode -- they should be compensated much more than the 50-60K that would ensure a good college education.

It's a beautiful LIE said...

I am not going to hate on Kate for how she looks in her bikini. I am by no means overweight, but I wouldn't mind having her bikini body. I wouldn't have extensive plastic surgery to have it, wouldn't sell my soul and exploit my kids to have it...just sayin'.

What I will say is I think it is highly inappropriate for her to be parding around is those teeny weeny bikinis in front of a man that is not her husband. That tells us all we need to know about her relationship with Mr. Gray, IMO.

--------------------------
Thank you for providing that information - I'm glad to hear viewership went down for these most recent episodes.

Face it Kate -- people just aren't that interested in you, your tummy tucked body and your bikinis. If that's what people are looking for, they'll tune in to Paris Hilton or Lindsay Lohan or Britney Spears -- not you with the salad shooter haircut and cruel streak.

I totally agree.

meg said...

isnt is strange how before, in past episodes, when kate was on the beach she would wear tankinis and such and now all of a sudden she is wearing bikinis? hmm...

Jennifer A. said...

The bikini is the least of my issues with Kate.

arminius said...

The longer the Gosselin parents are in the news, the more likely they will become the targets of real professional satirists and be brought down hard. Before, they were too unimportant to the general culture to be noticed, but now they are inescapable.

This is bound to fizzle out before the next season of Saturday Night Live (unless Kate + Mr Grey hit the fan), and The Daily Show and all don't reach a big enough audience, but there is another outlet that is outstanding at whipping out topical episodes on very short notice.

South Park.

Can you imagine? Just imagine what South Park could do to Kate and Jon Gosselin, and the sheeple too. Are you imagining now? Pretty impressive, isn't it? Oh, the mind boggles.

***********************
Yes, it is. There are some other strange things I've noticed with this trip and Ms. "Do As I Say, Not As I Do."

Jon loved the beach, but Kate hated sand. So last year in NC they went to the beach once. This year, a person couldn't drag her and her bikini off the beach and out of the view of cameras.

Less than a year ago, Jon was in MC in knee deep water with the almost eight year old twins. Kate screamed bloody murder at him because he wasn't holding their hands the whole time. She made it clear to the nation that she thought he was being stupid and careless with their children. Yet this year, she's got not two but THREE little just-turned-five-olds who can't swim and aren't wearing life vests playing around in water almost as deep as the twins were in, and Kate isn't even watching the little ones:

http://www.radaronline.com/photos/image/7146/2009/05/kate-gosselin-beach-bikini

Less than a year ago, she insisted on buying one piece suits for the twins for the sake of modesty. Now with her new body and bodyguard, she's all about the wardrobe of fashion bikinis.

Kate is such a hypocrite, it makes me sick.

Inspirational stories and fun email forwards said...

Is it just me or is Kate absolutely loving the attention she's getting. Even the negative.
(well actually we all know the answer to that one) but lately she's showing a lot of skin and dressing more provocatively. (like in this picture) I saw the bikini pictures also. Normally I'd say she looks great. After all she's at the beach. That is the place to wear a bikini isn't it? For a mother of eight she does look exceptionally well but it's only because she had free plastic surgery. She never had to exercise, work hard or do anything to get that body. It was given to her for free.

For a mother who's having marital problems and spends little to no time with her children (unless it's on camera) I think it's pretty disgusting that she's running around half dressed. Maybe she's hoping to land a spot on a milf list. Which isn't actually a compliment in the least.

emptynester I couldn't agree more! It's all about her. Always has been always will be. She is a selfish, self absorbed Monster Mom.
The sad thing is her children are suffering for her actions. It's a shame.

Jon Home With Cara & Maddy Today, 6/2/09

http://justjared.buzznet.com/2009/06/02/jon-gosselin-ups-guy/

they're everywhere said...

Jon is on the full cover of the new People & Larry King Live spent a good portion of the show talking about them, as well as Showbiz Tonight

Tabloid Tracker said...

Kate makes the cover...again!

http://justjared.buzznet.com/

(scroll down for story on US)

Tabloid Tracker said...

more info:



For the SIXTH week in a row, Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom Kate Gosselin takes the cover of Us Weekly (See: Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, Week 4, Week 5).

Kate’s has the face, hair and now bikini-clad body to moves millions of magazines!

This week’s scandal-icious headlines claim that Kate pulled kids from school for a TV show vacation, threw a hissy fit at the gym, and ignored her kids at the pool. Dun dun dun…


(lol at the dun, dun, dun....)

Cover says "Mommy, You Are Mean"

Let's play -- guess which child was overheard making THAT catchy cover statement?

(i say Mady)
who's next?

dun, dun, dun........

Tuesday75 said...

everyone but Hannah?.

Linda said...

Does anyone else think John looks like he's had a huge weight lifted off his shoulders. I first noticed it during Monday night couch interviews, and again in the pictures on JustJared. I think not being around Kate agrees with him.

The kids will definitely benefit from having a happy, relaxed dad to hang out with. I don't think he'll have any problems stepping up to the plate and being a great dad, now that he can do it without the constant harping. One can only imagine how different the childrens home life is when Kate is there and when she's not there. What a roller coaster life those kids must live in.

AllAboardTheGravyTrain said...

I think Nadya Suleman is pissed because Kate is derailing the gravy train.

Kate is drawing too much negative attention to reality shows that feature young children.

Kate is like the character in the gangster movie that starts flashing money and buying expensive things the day after the big heist.

FormerViewer said...

Here's the People magazine article:

http://tvwatch.people.com/2009/06/02/inside-kate-mady-gosselins-san-diego-trip/

I found the information in paragraphs 2 and 3 interesting.

Paragraph 2 was:

"The duo had a four-day getaway at the Paradise Point Resort and Spa in San Diego, where they were spotted relaxing on the beach and enjoying lunch at the resort’s outdoor café."

Paragraph 3 starts off with:
"Camera crews filmed one full day of their trip, while a bodyguard accompanied the mother-daughter duo on the other days."

I can't help but wonder how many hours constitute "one full day" and what the California laws are about child labor?

Au Natural.... said...

Hey Everyone,
Haven't seen anyone post this, so hope i'm not repeating.

I saw the pics people posted of kate's before and after - wow!

I think she looks amazing compared to where she started (not that it's all about looks and it should NOT be, but I bet it gave her a confidence boost).

Unfortunately, I think it boosted her over the edge of reason and that's too bad.

Now, here's what I want to say.

Because all these bikini pics are an OBVIOUS plant by TLC AND the hubby with the plastic surgeon's wife?

I think Kate has actually had ALOT more work done -- not just a boob job - but LOTS of LIPO, TOO!

That's why she doesn't have a waist and any hips.

I just bet that she was hitting the gym and tanning salon for the big "reveal" at the beach!!

This woman has had a TON of work done - and i think they were hoping the DOC would get a lot more play out of this - - but were not counting on the other scandals.

anyway -- kate looks good.
we get it.
aside from the misplaced belly button - the doc did a great job.

but there is nothing remarkable about someone showing off someone else's work - but that's typical kate -- letting the doc and her kids do ALL the work.

Nah... IMHO the bikini pics were meant to coincide (as they did) with the pics of Jon drinking with the plastic surgeon's wife and daughter. It just a plug as usual. C'mon.

I'm sorry, but the not-a-nanny should NOT be in a bikini.

Especially since the not-a-nanny arrived with the brood wearing a Liberty University sweatshirt.

LU has very strict rules (on campus and off) about modesty.

Kate's a baaaaad influence on this young Christian girl.

Kate, Mady, and Mr. Gray had a four-day getaway at the Paradise Point Resort and Spa in San Diego.

The trio were seen scrunched in together, just smiling and talking in a golf cart.

A lover's getaway in the disguise of a mother-daughter trip (my guess).

US Weekly does have it wrong. Kate did not pull the twins out of school for the vacation. Just Jared showed pictures of the twins back in PA with Jon. The twins had a long weekend so that is why they were there but are definitely back in school. Being that the tups are in pre-K their last day of school was probably before Memorial Day. I know that is how it is where I live. Pre-K and K don't go as long as the rest of the students. Cara clearly plays sports I can't remember what the sport is called but my son played it his senior year. Very athlete sport. Twins look much more relaxed when they are home w/Dad. Kate is reveling in the media attention she is getting right now. She loves it. Makes covers of magazines w/thong bikinis, spending a whole week w/her bodyguard... and not-a-nanny taking care of the tups. IMHO for the sake of discretion after all the tabloid claims, the last thing I would want would be pictured w/the bodyguard whom I was accused of having an affair w/ in bikinis, low cut dresses, etc. or what about Steve's wife? She is some piece of work. TLC had record rating again.... darn it.... but hopefully after from what the comments are on this site that those viewers found it extremely boring and won't continue to watch. I still won't watch. I dread going to the grocery store anymore seeing her face on every magazine... I just want her to go away. Give her what she wants, a talk show, and let the kids go back to PA.

Star has an interview this week with Kate's ex-fiance. He is quoted as saying she went after money and cheated on him with a guy with a Corvette. Should be interesting. :)

Sportscar, hairplugs, 4 wheelers, million dollar home, bling, Utah ski trips, feeebies out the wazoo....


'Nuff said!!!!!

Get a clue, Jon Gosselin. Go get a dictionary and read up on the definition of child exploitation. Just because you deny it, doesn't change the definition. You ARE a child exploiter!

Doesn't everyone see thru this charade by now? They are both playing everyone (still). They were in trouble months ago - tried to hide it....didn't do too good a job and sorta got busted. Step in paid PR people to twist to their advantages.

They open with the big 5 yo BD party - but things have turned sour by now and they can only cover up so much. They decide to do more current interviews to help cover it up. Fast forward to 2nd week and anybody that has followed this at all can tell this was filmed months prior to opening show - their demeanor is so obviously different.

In the meantime - daily - we are seeing this train wreck unfold...cover after cover after cover. They've said it loudly - 6th week in a row to make a cover. Can you say CELEBRITY?

They purposefully leak bikini clad pictures - with a few kids thrown in. Have you seen all 8 together in any shots? Do you not see at least 2 different outfits - yet same background scenery. Everyone starts to speculate about how awful for them to make the twins miss their last week of school.....but lo and behold - DAYS later we "find out" they are in deed back home, safe and sound with dad and in their school uniforms living their normal life.

I think I actually see a little smirk on Jon's face - sorta "ha ha gotcha".

Personally - I like Jon better than Kate at this point - but think they are both playing this up for what it's worth. I think they both see the end in site and are milking every second they can out of it - cuz they know it's overwith - so go out with a big ole bang................

Flapping My Gums said...

WHY on earth would you go on a vacation with your kids, during a time when two of them had to be in school, and go through the trouble of having to send the two back by themselves while you stay with the tups? Why would you just not wait until Mady and Cara are oficially out of school, so they could go and stay the whole trip?

Gasp!!! Could it be Kevin and Jodi are right and every vacation is produced and contrived for...ratings?????

If you ask me, I feel like Jon and Kate keep a line drawn between Mady and Cara, and the sextuplets. Instead of having 8 kids, they have 2 and 6. I feel like instead of blending them as siblings, they keep them segregated. I know I'd be pissed if I had to leave a vacaction and go home while my little brothers and sisters got to stay.

Then again....their mother is Kate Gosselin. Maybe it was a relief for them to go home and get away from her. I wonder if the tups were begging to go home with Mady and Cara, but were forced to stay for filming?

Kate's Ex-Fiancé Tells All!
June 3, 2009



Who knew? Kate Gosselin was engaged before she ever met Jon — and now the fiancé she has never spoken about is telling all to Star, and he does not paint a pretty picture.

For starters, Adam Miller says the reality star supermom pressured him to marry her — but he broke off the engagement after she cheated on him at her 21st birthday party.

“She hooked up with some guy in a Corvette,” factory worker Adam says in a world exclusive interview. “She was always chasing the money.”

Kate caught Adam’s eye back in 1995 in the small town of Kutztown, Pa. Adam was 17 and a recent high school graduate. Kate, a nursing student, was a year older. Still he managed to play sugar daddy to his bride-to-be. “I spoiled Kate with gifts, like a diamond bracelet and a gold locket, and she loved that. I think one of the main reasons she liked me is that I had so much money flowing.”

Adam, 33, also reveals that Kate was nothing like the organic-food-loving health nut she is now. “We’d eat mostly hamburgers, fries, Cheetos. A typical night out was at Ruby Tuesday’s!”

From People mag. Interview with Jon. What can I say..shocked!

"Except when the subject turns to his children. "Exploited?," asks Jon. "I don't even want to use that word, because I think it's ridiculous," he says heatedly. Jon insists his children's happiness will remain his focus —

**even if keeping them happy means quitting the show."****

Did he really say that? If he means it then I am Team Jon!

goldengirl said...

NEW YORK (AP) — Jon Gosselin says there's no truth to reports that his eight children have been hurt by the family's reality TV series.
Both Gosselin and his wife, Kate, have drawn tabloid fire as the couple, their 8-year-old twins and 5-year-old sextuplets continue to appear on the TLC network's "Jon & Kate Plus 8."
Last week, Pennsylvania's Labor Department said it was launching a probe to see if the hit show is complying with child labor laws. (TLC said it "fully complies" with state laws and regulations.)
Gosselin rejects the idea that his children are being exploited by the TV production.
"I don't even want to use that word, because I think it's ridiculous," he told People magazine. "We have healthy, happy, well-adjusted, educated kids. They're bouncing around and having a good time."
Jon and Kate have reportedly cheated on each other. They deny those allegations, while acknowledging their marriage is struggling in the media glare.
"I think all parents, and anyone who is married, are always going to have times when you're upset with someone," Jon said. "This is a reality show, so you're going to see real emotion."

From AP article....

****

I don't know. Instinctively, I've always liked Jon. I want to believe that he wants what's best for his kids, but honestly I think he's just playing the game. From this excerpt, it sounds like he's toeing the party line.

I find it interesting that he did the People article at his lawyer's offices.

It was nice to see Cara and Mady smiling in the recent photos with their Dad. Notice that Cara (I think it was Cara) had a lacrosse set? Hmmm...people here have been criticizing that they don't play sports and now all of a sudden...

gherkin said...

The US Magazine site has witnesses at the beach saying Kate totally ignored the kids except when the cameras were filming. She also was huddling a lot with her boyfriend bodyguard. They were saying anyone who encountered her found her to be very rude. What a surprise!

Also there was a segment on ET last night about them and Mary Hart said it has "been rumored" that this will be the last season for the show. Let's keep our fingers crossed!

BMWoP said...

Mario Lopez just did a segment on Extra, and they talked about how Steve Neild is on vacay with Kate and acting as the dad. They showed video of him walking with Kate and the kids in NC, holding a tups hand...as if it were his kid. They said he is 46 and stressed that he is MARRIED.

There is NO WAY that relationship is "just security" and friendly. No way. She is cleverly incorporating him into the family as a possible step-father.

That is one stupid man right there. Stupid stupid stupid.

Ms.Peach said...

Since we are in agreement that TLC monitors this blog, here's a prediction. We have been speculating about Steve. If his wife makes an appearance on this vacation (via TLC paps and Kate said that his wife has joined them on vacations), this will be to cool down the rumors. They will have to leak it. Just wait....

I'm leaving you an opening here, TLC. C'mon, bite if they're not a couple. Surely the wife would want to "stand by her man".

dp123 said...

In my expert non-medical opinion, there's nothing wrong with Kate's eyes. What I'm seeing is the flesh on one of her eyelids is heavier, showing less of the white on that eye.

I've written TLC several times asking them to cancel the show. TLC is responsible, but J&K also need to clean up their own mess.

Okay, I read a synopsis of the story Jon gave to People Mag and it said that he got all pissed off when people used the word "exploitation". He apparently has never heard anything more ridiculous in his life. I suspect he just never knew the meaning of the word (among others).

I have always defended Jon as being just a limp washcloth being used as a means to an end for the hated Kate. Now I will, after reading the whole story, probably put him smack dab right in the same big brown bag with her. According to the story, he said if the kids ever wanted to stop filming he would make it happen. That led me to wonder how much more Mady and Cara have to do to get this point across to the half-wit? And I'm wondering how those tiny babies could've voiced their displeasure about being shown sick, in the shower, on the toilet, getting yelled, being hurt.....Come on, Jon, now you are turning off even your biggest - gulp - gag - fans. TELL THE TRUTH FOR once in your pathetic life or do what you should do and get those kids off TV.

These two make me sick. Liars - both of them. She's just a little more sleazy and greasy than he at first appears to be.

NO DOUBT. I can't believe his wife is putting up with this. Unless they, too, are actually separated. WTF?

As The Gosselin's Turn said...

Some people on a pro Gosselin site ( the baby's crying ) are saying that exploiting means you make your kids do something they normally wouldn't do for money, and the kids aren't being made to do anything they normally wouldn't do.

Last time I checked, you "normally" wouldn't make your kids create video footage to give to total strangers, which shows them defacating, vomiting, melting down, and nude...in exchange for a ginormous amount of money and freebies.

"I'll give you this video of my kid pooping if you give me XXX amount of money so I don't have to work and can buy myself a sportscar."

That, my dears, is child exploitation. The above is exactly what Jon and Kate are doing.

Now, if Jon and Kate were putting every single penny made off the show into accounts strictly for the kids' future..for THEM to have...or at least their fair share, I might be more open to listening to your arguments. But Jon and Kate have repeatedly shown over and over that they are not doing that and are blowing the money just as fast and easily as they make it. They are forgetting they would have not a nickel of that money if it were not for the kids. We wouldn't even know who Jon and Kate are if it weren't for the kids.

Oh, and doing a day long photo shoot, dressed in winter clothing in 90+ degree heat for a magazine cover, or ANY magazine cover for that matter, IS forcing them to do something they normally wouldn't do, in exchange for money for the parents. And please do tell me of other childen who regularly are forced to say, "On this episode of Jon and Kate Plus 8". Would they be saying that if there were no money being made? What about being forced to sit in a bus or plane for hours upon hours, pretty regularly I might add, so they can accompany their parents on yet another free trip? Think about the number of hours those small children were forced to travel for filming purposes. They wouldn't normally be doing that if large amounts of money weren't being given to their parents.
The kids ARE being made to do things they normally wouldn't do.

Don't let the fru-fru music fool you.

BMWoP said...

Can't remember what tabloid it was there are so many, but one of them said a guest at the spa in San Diego saw Kate, Steve, and Mady all squished together and riding one of those bicycle carts.

How cute.

BarbMae said...

Bodyguards are not suppose to get personal with the people they are charged with guarding. Ang&Brad have bodyguards but they are the ones holding their kids hands not the guards. The picture of Kate in her black bikini on People.com today shows a male arm w/black trunks in the pic.. Would be interesting if that was Steve cause Kate is all smiles. The more I see pictures of how close Steve is to Kate the more I wonder. Bodyguards are suppose to not be seen and blend in the background. Katie Holmes & Suri have bodyguards but they are always BEHIND THEM not carrying purses, holding on the kids hands, driving gold carts, bicycle carts, etc... This is not a "normal" bodyguard relationship no matter how Kate & TLC spin it. No way, no how. If it smells like a rat it probably is a rat and I smell a whole heck of alot of rats....

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

Kate said this was a "working vacation" which opens up the question as to how many hours are these kids being filmed.

Also, in the photos, there are some other folks sitting near Kate. Any thoughts as to who they are? Doubt they are just passengers. Not seeing the Silver Fox but I'm sure he's there. Wonder where the boys are?

Just Curious said...

Do we know how accurate US Weekly is? Most of the info seems to come from them, and I don't see it being substantiated by anyone else.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not a defender of J&K, and think we need to get these kids off the air for their own good. But facts are important to me and I'm just very curious what US Weekly's record is.

bcsurvivor2001 said...

Wonder if those other 4 people in the boat were compensated? Don't you have to sign a release to have your likes used in a taping?

One is on the cell phone- can you imagine THAT conversation :)

And for a nice little ferry ride - girls seem pretty bored and somber. The mic is in front of them - yet they are all looking behind them - or over kate's shoulder. What they looking at I wonder? more cameras????

And anybody that didn't already assume this would be for an upcoming show ......... plleeezzeee They have put WAY too much thought (leaks) into this episode(s)

http://www.usmagazine.com/news/american-academy-of-child-psychiatry-slams-jon-and-kate-200936

Scathing article by Us Weekly complete with detailed interview with a psychiatrist about the exploitation of these kids.

If TLC and J+K's PR team were in damage control before, then they must be flipping their sh!t to remedy this one!

nanasez said...

Jon thinks his kids are well-adjusted? Has he forgotten Leah making herself puke almost daily for years? Or Alexis trying to follow suit? How about Hannah's headaches? Mady and Cara's "meldowns"? Kids wearing bibs until they're five years old? Calling their mother by the nanny's name? Losing their extended family to estrangement?

I'm not sure Jon knows what healthy adjustment is for children. But then, how could he. All he's known for most of his parenting years are camera-adjusted children.

goawayJandK said...

Yeah, I'll bet it was - work FOR THE KIDS.

I didn't know that K8 had made that statement. Thanks.

Bells said...

So I went ahead as a time-killer and looked at Kate's old yearbook pics and they had kate's siblings in there as well. Funny note it said kevin's favorite quote was "don't forget the little people that made you big". How true.

But I did notice that one of kate's sisters, Chris, seemed to really resemble hannah. Then I started to wonder if this is why kate's always leaned more towards hannah as the favorite (because in my eyes she's got the most tude out of all the tups) because perhaps kate was closest to her sister chris and since for very much "kate" reasons she's not in her life?? So she picks hannah as the favorite because of her resemblance to her aunt (that's she's probably never met or knows about). Of course that logic doesn't make sense but nothing kate does anyways so..

It is interesting to view all those pics just to see the resemblance of the kids to their aunts that they've never met.

I'm in PR said...

Why did Leah make herself throw up?

Ms.Peach said...

Regarding the picture of Kate and girl tups on the ferry---SHE AND THE GIRLS ARE DRESSED IN THE SAME CLOTHES that they were pictured in on May 31. I thought I recognized the dress because I like it. I don't have time to go back, but there were other photos taken of her in that dress in other locations.

So for editing consistency, they have them in the same outfits. I knew that they have been doing that, but we didn't have the pap photos to prove it.

Will she claim they only filmed one day out of the entire vacation? Does anyone know how many days they have been in NC?

Amazing. Jon had the chance to rescue his kids AND be free of Kate while retaining all public sympathy. But he p*ssed it away just to keep making a paycheck off his kids back.

Never has so much public good will been completely wasted, and all for the sake of the almighty dollar. Worse yet, the Gosselin kids remain the victims and prisoners of their parents quest for fame and fortune.

Sick.

by the way i don't know if you guys read slate, but they have a cultural gabfest were they talk about movies, tv, books, plays and they had a little segment where they talked about J+k+8. Funniest line was when one of the commenters said "my wife said, if I was Kate, I'd cheat on her too" they also called her a 'shrew' and a 'harpee' LOL.

Hey BM,
Is Dr. Michael Brody, Media Chairman of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, just plain jealous of what the Gosselins have?
Is the AACAP some fly by night institution that does not KNOW what they are talking about, Sheeple?

I can hear sheep-speak now. “He never treated the Gosselin kids so he doesnt know what he is talking about. He needs to mind his business.”

I think you need to look up their website before you put your foot in your mouth.

Wonderful! I think this is wonderful and I think this will get the ball rolling to save those kids from certain psychological hell in their futures!

ihatethisshow said...

they have been split since late '08 in my opinion. kate and tlc convinced jon to 'hang' with the program and deceit for ratings and $$. I am quite confident that kate and jon reached an agreement regarding extra-curricular activities for BOTH of them. unfortunately, the hand that feeds them BIT THEM, and now they are seen for the child exploiters and frauds that they are. TLC is also fully culpable in this charade and should be held accountable as well. come on people! it is so obvious kate and steve are now a couple-geesh! jon has had a new girlfriend, yet she is probably the first of soon to be many. there was no mention of jon's bday, which was a few days after hers...hmmm...i am also sure that his atty has advised him to chill out, so KATE CAN HANG HERSELF WITH HER OWN ROPE...going to see the doctor's wife, was just getting a little information on what kate was doing while she was there. this is going to be the mother of all celebrity divorces. can't wait for a front row seat!

LRLIGHT said...

Kate is digging her grave by taking these kids on this photo opp working vacation right now and posing in her various bikini shots. It is just evidence of further exploitation. She keeps saying that the kids are benefitting from the show. Seriously, what kid would want to go on a ferry ride with a bunch of cameras in their face? I think The Gosselin kids are satiated with all of these outings and would probably have just as much fun if not ten times more fun playing with an empty refrigerator box in the yard at home. Kate seems to think she can fill her life with travel but anyone who travels a lot will tell you that it gets old after a while and all places begin to look the same and one begins to ache for their own bed and home routine. Especially, in this day and age when safety is a real issue in the world -- I would not want to be dragging my 5 year olds around from strange place to strange place.

bcsurvivor2001 said...

Again - look at the "leaked" pictures. All basically pretty good, controlled shots. Not one with a hair out of place, no make up on, nothing at all negative. This is NOT paparazzi getting "shots" - it is a planned PR move from the get go.

silent where they need to be. Just like them letting everyone carry on and on about removing the girls from school - knowing dog gone well they were back home and safe.

And lo and behold - how'd they get them off that island without the paparazzi knowing it.......hmmmmmmm

This is a show people - with experts running the scripts.

gherkin said...

Someone asked how long Kate has been at the beach. They arrived on Saturday, May 25th.

It looks like the two older girls were there for the first week and then returned home and back to school. So they missed one week of school?

Sue in PA who is also just curious said...

I doubt that the State of PA is going to find any infraction of the laws. My guess is that TLC has a way of documenting things to keep things legal.

Want this show off, best thing to do is contact the sponsors. TLC is loving the attention, but won't if sponsors start pulling out.

And don't take it out on Ruby Tuesday's. That was back when Kate was in College!

I read somewhere that Jon and Kate have asked the kids if they wanted to continue the show. And of course Jon and Kate explained to them they would have to stay in a daycare while they(the parents) worked. In other words, either you do the show or I'll send you to daycare.

I can't imagine how alone and insecure these kids feel. The parents should not put this much responsibility or pressure on these kids to make a decision like that. They should not be put in the position to have to make a decision at all.

They have no one to comfort them and assure them that everything will be OK. I doubt they could give a truthful answer about doing the show for fear that they will disappoint the parents.

I'm sure Jon and Kate remind them everyday that the show provides them with toys, the house, clothes, food, the dogs, trips, etc... These kids cannot say no for fear of loosing everything including their parents to work. They should be reassured instead.

Since when do we leave decisions such as this in the hands of 5 and 8 year olds anyway. The parents are the ones that are suppose to make decisions concerning the families welfare, not the kids. It's mentally abusive.

Suzzy said...

Nothing says, "Mom of 8 ready to play at the beach" like a skimpy bikini!!!!!

Come on! Get real. Is she soooo into herself that she needs to now flaunt her flesh?

As a YOUNG, and in GOOD shape mom of 4, I either opt for a tankini OR a 1 piece to play w/ my tikes!

ANY mom knows that at the beach you are going to be bending over making sandcastles, chasing little ones, and helping the kids ride the waves.

Pu-lease. Kate, you already know the PAPARRAZI are clicking away! Cover up and play w/ your kids!

Sue in PA said...

I actually think it's a good thing Kara and Maddie only had a long weekend in NC, then went back to PA with Jon. Jon seems much more relaxed with the kids when Kate is not around. I'm thinking it's a good for Kara and Maddie to spend some time with their Dad and not have everyone else around.

I have to admit, I go to NC every May. The weather is perfect, in the 70's no humidity, no bugs yet, long hours of daylight. It's off season so you have the beach almost to yourself. Plus a lot of the houses are booked months in advance for the summer so it is easier to get an off season rental last minute.

Not that I'm defending Kate for doing it. I just don't see it as all negative. I do think there are a couple of pluses, especially for Kara and Maddie. Anyway, I'm expecting them to have their own trip down the line again. You wait and see.

I agree with the ones who said that Kate and Jon are now just playing the media and have been for a while. They know that as long as they stay on the magazine covers and show up daily on the gossip blogs they are more likely to keep their ratings up, probably around the 4 or 5 million mark.

They are little by little getting their viewers used to the idea that they will be apart most of this season and I wouldn't be surprised if part of the plan is to end the season looking more like they will get back together. Keeping their viewers waiting to see what happens the next season.

I just don't see them ending this at all, they obviously don't care if a majority of people think they are money grubbing fame whores who will do anything for money. Jon is clearly as money hungry as his wife, and they will squeeze out as many seasons of freebies and trips as they can.

As The Gosselin's Turn said...

Some people on a pro Gosselin site ( the baby's crying ) are saying that exploiting means you make your kids do something they normally wouldn't do for money, and the kids aren't being made to do anything they normally wouldn't do.

Last time I checked, you "normally" wouldn't make your kids create video footage to give to total strangers, which shows them defacating, vomiting, melting down, and nude...in exchange for a ginormous amount of money and freebies.

"I'll give you this video of my kid pooping if you give me XXX amount of money so I don't have to work and can buy myself a sportscar."

That, my dears, is child exploitation. The above is exactly what Jon and Kate are doing.

Now, if Jon and Kate were putting every single penny made off the show into accounts strictly for the kids' future..for THEM to have...or at least their fair share, I might be more open to listening to your arguments. But Jon and Kate have repeatedly shown over and over that they are not doing that and are blowing the money just as fast and easily as they make it.

---

They're making millions. What is your proof that they're spending it as fast as they're bringing it in. You have no way of knowing what is being set aside for the kids so therefore you shouldn't state that they are not getting their fair share. They may or may not be, but nobody here has the facts to draw conclusions.

goldengirl said...

It occurred to me that the reason she's so in to Steve is that he's got earning potential. She knows the show is going to end some day, that her marriage is in the toilet and that Jon is never going to be wealthy enough to give her decent child and spousal support that will allow her to maintain her lifestyle.

Steve can.

To quote "Shopaholic and Baby"...She's a skunk haired bitch and I hate her.

Actually I don't hate her. That would require too much emotional investment on my part and she's not worth it. I just feel so bad for those kids. I had high hopes for Jon but he just dashed them with the People interview. Unless TLC was holding a gun to his head (and he was at the lawyers office for the interview) he's sold out himself and his kids.

You don't have proof they are giving their kids their fair share ( unless you are really Jon ), and Jon and Kate always seem to skirt this issue, knowing people are asking about this. If they are, why hide it? So, until they answer this question, which I think people have a right to know since they have chosen to be public personalities, I will always assume they are hording it all for themselves. And I'll keep saying it until they prove me and thousands of others wrong. I find it odd Kate will share all kinds of personal information about Jon in People Magazine, but won't answer a simple question about the kids getting money ( she even said the kids will have to work to buy their own cars, and is still whining that they need to continue the show so she can feed her kids and send them to college ). That, to me, means there is no money being saved for them. Those are all the facts I need to draw a conclusion.

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

I think you hit it when you said he was at the lawyers office. There was a reason for that. Don't forget that they are being looked at by the State of PA, so he has to say they aren't exploiting the kids. And I'm sure TLC or Kate pushed him into the interview. I don't think Jon agrees to that kind of stuff volunteerily. I still give him some credit. He had the instinct to know they needed to get away from the show. Don't forget he is closely involved in it and sometimes you have to take a step back from a situation to see what is really happening. He hasn't had that chance. If anyone is going to see it, it will be Jon, not Kate.

Because it is the finances of the children, who are minors. The children's finances should NOT be public. There should be an independent attorney, the state, etc. that takes the responsiblity of review the kids financial situation. Not us. And, we don't know that there isn't. Actually I believe everyone, even someone who has put themselves in the public eye have the right to key their finances private, but especially minors.

What will Kate do if she ends up with Steve, and he has to run off one day and protect the next damsel in distress and is gone all the time?

Wonder if she would tolerate him going on vacations with another woman as her protector.

Sunday Rose said...

Of course Jon cannot openly admit their kids are being exploited while being interviewed by People Magazine or any other media outlet. But, I believe he does know the truth. There is a time and a place for these things to come to fruition, and I have faith that Jon is on the right path. He is a quiet man, and a very intelligent one. Give him time.

Also, when a mom stays home with her kids, she is known as a hero, doing the most important job in the world. But when a man does this same job, he is considered lazy. That is just wrong and narrow sighted.

Tia said...

Look at this. It's Kate as a blind item on "Blind Gossip"! She is sooo full of herself!!

Blind Gossip:
"This reality girl thinks very highly of herself and her appearance. She honestly believes that other women look at her, envy everything about her, and want to be like her. She talks a lot about her vision of other women going to their salon and demanding her hairstyle by name, like a “Dorothy Hamil” or a “Farrah” or a “Rachel”, along with products to support that style. However, while there are many companies who are ready to profit from her high-profile lifestyle, she is really, really annoyed that there is not a single beauty or consumer goods company who wants to name a product line after her. Perhaps they are steering clear because there are at least a half dozen other things to which she should be attending right now - like her crumbling personal life."

I was just standing in line at the check out and what should be there but a copy of People. I guess it was last week's. Anyway, Kate was not the cover story, but there was a small picture in the upper lefthand corner with the heading "Kate Gosselin's New Lonely Life". Puk!!!

What I noticed more than anything was the photo People used. Obviously taken at the same time she did the big article for them and was in NYC. It was the same makeup and photographer (I could tell by the air brushing).

So I guess this may have been in the works for a while --- portraying Kate as a single mom.

I will never spend a dime on People magazine. TLC's PR team has got them in their hip pocket.

c'mon folks...follow the $$$!!! it has been documented earlier on this blog that people is owned by a company related to tlc...i am sure jon was 'told' to do the people magazine...the more public exposure they get, the more the public talks about them and watches their show....jon, just keep documenting dude...the fat lady is gonna sing soon...
if you gave kate the choice of personal celebrity and wealth or her kids, we all know which one she would make (and will make)..even if they split custody she will be an absent parent and the kids will spend that time with the nannies...it has always been about kate, and always will be..jon and the kids were just a tool to get her what she wanted...i hope she realizes most people can't stand her--what an accomplished life! ugh

"Do we know how accurate US Weekly is? Most of the info seems to come from them, and I don't see it being substantiated by anyone else. . . ."

Trouble is, how accurate is a lot of the information out there? Some publications have poor past track records with accuracy. However, at this point in time, I certainly don't trust Jon, Kate, or TLC as sources either. It is interesting to see what discrepancies crop up.

If it weren't for the kids, I think I'd find the whole situation hilarious.

I still have my fingers crossed for him, too. He has been wrapped in TLC bubblewrap for the last several years and Kate has kept him isolated from all friends and family.

It's possible that once he is back out into the real world that he will come to appreciate other opinions and perspectives regarding the children.

I just hope I'm not giving him too much credit. So far he's given no inclination of changing a thing.

I really hope for his sake that he doesn't wait until one of the kids writes a book and asks him why he didn't put a stop to it.

That would be so much worse than Googling his name.

Jon... Wake Up!!

http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20282845,00.html

The opening sentence is: "By the time Jon Gosselin arrives at the Manhattan offices of his attorneys, he looks like he's been through a war."

William R. Blumer Esq., is the attorney who is the trustee for the trust that owns the Konpound. He practices in the areas of estate planning, elder law, estate administration, fiduciary litigation and business representation. He's with the Leisawitz Heller firm which has a Wyomissing, PA, address and phone. Their website is: http://www.leisawitzheller.com/ No where on their site is anything about a Manhattan office.

That makes me wonder what the Manhattan attorney's practice specialty is. No where in the People article (or another version I read elsewhere on line but can't remember where) does it mention an attorney's name, firm name, or type of law practice.

*****

She's already answered that one. As long as the money's coming in, she won't ask questions. She doesn't care.

So my fantasy?

TLC ends the show.

Kate tries to market herself as the epitome of single motherhood, but no one's buying it. Since the Dept. of Labor has been investigating them, no one will touch any new reality show that features the kids and without the kids they don't want her.

Lawyers are appointed for the kids and their fair share of the J&K+8 earnings are put in to trusts for them until they reach 21.

Jon files for divorce and sole custody. Once Kate realizes that the kids are no longer her gravy train, she "allows" them to live with Jon. She visits them minimally and while they miss her, they thrive under the easy going care of their father who loves them unconditionally and makes sure they know everyday how sorry he is for what they went through and promises they will never go through that again. He tells them daily that they are uniquely and wonderfully made and a constant blessing in his life.

Jon moves back to Elizabethtown near Kevin and Jodi who help out with babysitting while he goes back to school. He graduates with a degree in physical fitness and opens his own gym and ski resort, donating time to children with special needs as a tribute to his father. He does modestly well for himself and meets a woman who loves him for the man he is, not who she can make him be. They have a warm, open relationship with ALL the children's extended family, who are regularly included in their lives. The children grow up strong and healthy, in both body and spirit.

Kate marries Steve.

He has to leave to protect Michelle Duggar. He falls in love with the niece and the two run off together amid tabloid scandal sheets.

Kate refuses to grant him a divorce but says he can have his girls on the side as long as the money keeps rolling in. She lives in the Berks County mansion, always alone because Steve can't stomach being around her and so she turns to plastic surgery to bolster her self esteem and feed her vanity. She spends all her money on plastic surgery and ends up looking like Michael Jackson.

Her nose falls off.

The End.

Perez once again gets it:

Gosselin mania continues on with no end in sight! You know you love it!

Besides the show's constant tabloid attention and an investigation into child labor laws, now Jon and Kate Gosselin are being slammed for their parenting by professional minds

Dr. Michael Brody of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry was interviewed to discuss his opinions on the mental ramifications the Gosselin children will suffer because of their involvement with the reality show.

He insists that the constant presence of video cameras is damaging to the children's early development. He suggests they grow up never feeling they can be "genuine", since a camera will always be there to catch their actions as well as creating attention seekers:

"After a while these kids become knowledgeable, but it's not genuine. I think that this is where the problem lies. It's not genuine and you're fostering this craving for attention, which can create trouble later on."

The biggest problem Dr. Brody foresees is the resentment the kids will feel when they've grow and watch their childhood was played out on television for money. It is this idea of exploitation that motivated Kate's younger brother, Kevin Kreider , to bring the subject up to Kate and Jon. He told CBS' Early Show that the couple told him: "'This is how we're going to provide for them.'"

Again, Dr. Brody insists this is wrong: "It is not normal for five and eight year olds to support their family…This family, like other families on reality TV, is working to support the brand and so forth. Aren't there all kinds of products and stuff that these people support? It's wrong. It's a commercialization of children."

Finally, he slams Jon and Kate for not seeing the big picture and realizing that they have pushed their kids into a life they never had the chance to decline"

"These kids don't have any say in this. They are helpless. They have to do what their parents say."

Wow.

Kate Gosselin Gossip, News & Photos

A lot of pics of Kate and some of Jon.
Most people do not get that you have to keep up with TLC's lies, filming dates and current events. People magazine must be under the same umbrella as these networks. IMHO, they went downhill years ago when they stopped doing investigative journalism and started to be a mouthpiece for celebrities.

******

I don't think the girl in the pictures is the new "not-a-nanny" but some sort of helper. Notice the little girls' hair is back to how Kate would fix it with simple styles. The invisible "not-a-nanny" is the one responsible for all the cute hair styles the girls have been sporting.

Jon and the twins picking up freebies at their local UPS store yesterday:

http://justjared.buzznet.com/2009/06/02/jon-gosselin-ups-guy/


Kate on the US Weekly cover again this week. "Mommy You're Mean!" says one of the twins, also pulls kids from school for TV-made vacations (really? haha) Hissy-fit at gym and ignored kids at the pool during their recent NC trip, says moms that were at the pool also:

http://justjared.buzznet.com/2009/06/03/kate-gosselin-us-weekly-favorite/
-----------------------------------
Now I am really wondering about this entire situation and it being staged. First of all, if there are workers at the new house putting in a new kitchen, why couldn't they have accepted the packages from the UPS guy? Why would Jon and the twins have to go to pick them up? Also, I have used that same pickup spot, and believe me there are no photographers just hanging out there to snap pics of a celebrity coming by to pick up freebies. Someone once again is just setting up a photo op, which would also be a perfect opportunity to let all of us dopes in Berks County know that the twins are back. Still doesn't make any sense to let them come back for the last day of school............just all plain ridiculous and really getting to me. I long ago stopped watching them but am really thinking that I should stop reading as well. The only thing is I know I will look stupid at the check out counters when I put on blinders as it is hard not to see them displayed.

the people on here have the story straight. and facts.

these kids are already damaged. kate is horrible to them. and to most everyone she comes into contact with. HORRIBLE. it shouldbe an embarassment to be tied to her professionally or personally.

stop the lies. the web of lies that kate/tlc has been weaving for years now... is starting to unravel.

Thanks just wondering! :-) I liked your comment on the bubblewrap because it depicts the thuth on Jon's life. I agree....Kate has isolated Jon thru the years by even blocking him from having a healthy relationship with his family. Scary stuff. Disturbing indeed. That woman is all about control no matter the cost. Afterall, it's all about Kate, in Kate's world.

I noticed that the family with sextuplets with the show on the WE network is doing a lot of publicity. I've seen them featured on a few entertainment shows already, and they're constantly being asked/commenting about KON.

She said Kate is desperate for someone to love her and support her and noted how very, very hard she is working for her kids. WTH?!?! She was so sure Kate was heartbroken over Jon's choice to not spend her birthday with her. HOW OUT OF THE LOOP can one be? They are separated. Geez.

Wendy Bird said...

For those speculating about why Steve Nield's wife would tolerate his relationship with Kate; perhaps it is because they too have a "contract." Maybe that is where Kate got the idea from.

Also for those who might think that this is far-fetched and that people don't have open relationships; it happens more than you might think. I had a personal experience with a man who wore his wedding ring on his right hand, talked about only his children, never a wife, and was always available to talk to me on the phone and even meet on short notice. I didn't know he was married, and it turns out that his wife is as successful as he is and that they are in a "child-focused" marriage; agreeing to never divorce.

Just my thoughts...

Loathe and Despise come to mind when referring to Kate and I am afraid I agree with you...I really thought Jon was gonna jump out of this and be the savior...but I don't know if he doesn't believe he can and he's scared because she has eaten away at some much of his own belief in himself and his self esteem...or if he thinks he is locked into a contract...too many lawyers out there would love to take it on....IMO..I don't think he likes the cameras and I really don't want to believe he is loving the money as much as Kate but it is starting to look that way...he can still redeem himself but if he doesn't move soon it will not happen..and you are right if he charges in on the white horse for the benefit of the kids...i think he will have a ton of support..

Who knew? Kate Gosselin was engaged before she ever met Jon — and now the fiancé she has never spoken about is telling all to Star, and he does not paint a pretty picture.

For starters, Adam Miller says the reality star supermom pressured him to marry her — but he broke off the engagement after she cheated on him at her 21st birthday party.

This Miller guy sure dodged a huge bullet, didn't he?? Could have been ADAM & Kate + 8.....

LRLIGHT said...

OMG! Did you see Access Hollywood Wed night? They showed unseen prior footage of Kate and the kids being interviewed. Mady asked her mom for a drink saying that she had not had a drink all day (probably against child labor laws). Kate whips out a water bottle and drinks a gulp of water right in front of Mady and does not offer her thirsty child any. Mady says "you are so mean. You drink that right in front of my face". It is heartbreaking what a biatch this woman is to her children. The behavior that she so enjoyed inflicting on Jon by bossing him around 24/7, she is now obviously inflicting on her children, constantly yelling out in her annoying voice, orders to do this, do that, don't do this, don't do that.

I agree the photos at the beach are so staged. Who goes to the beach and stands up in a model's pose the whole time. At one point, she is putting sand in a bucket to make a castle I guess.. and we never see her sitting down with the kids to help build anything.

Susan said...

LRLIGHT..I saw that on Access Hollywood as well and just about spit my own water out that I was drinking at the time..I despised Kate even more when I saw her treat Mady that way and I can only imagine how many other times Hate has treated her kids that way..her selfishness is unbelievable..to watch the sour look on Hate's face as she made sure SHE had a drink of water before her crying daughter did made me ill..this woman has ice in her veins and I hope the authorities who are looking into this child exploitation issue see that footage..it speaks volumes as to how cold and hateful Hate truly is

It was really telling of how distorted and selfish Kate is to see Mady upset and thirsty and asking for a drink of water..and to see Kate basically sneer at Mady and proceed to take a big gulp of water herself while Mady sat there distressed and close to tears..what an awful way to treat one of her EMPLOYEE'S because that is basically what her kids are to her..it is so clear that she has very little concern for the kids well being and I am glad it was aired for all the world to see..Kate being an absolute b!tch!

So funny! Sonica the Hedgehog is a dead ringer for Kate -- hysterical. Check it out:

Yes Susan, I think the Access Hollywood Footage should be brought to the Pennsylvania agency doing the investigation as that just about sums things up in a nutshell. Thing is Access Hollywood didn't even show this footage prior - probably because they knew how controversial it would be. But I am glad they showed it now. She is an ice bitch, no doubt.

OMG! Did you see Access Hollywood Wed night? They showed unseen prior footage of Kate and the kids being interviewed. Mady asked her mom for a drink saying that she had not had a drink all day (probably against child labor laws). Kate whips out a water bottle and drinks a gulp of water right in front of Mady and does not offer her thirsty child any. Mady says "you are so mean. You drink that right in front of my face".

I wonder where they got the never before seen footage??

drpjgoodman said...

Didn't Keight take Cara and Mady to a modeling agent at one point? I thought they were going to get their own careers. They may need to support the rest of the family, once mommy's show gets canceled.

Am I the only one who (along with all her other faults) finds Keight's posture to be very poor? I mean, you'd think with her new rack, she'd have her round shoulders thrown back to show those bad boys off to the greatest advantage. She also needs to get back to the gym to get some definition in her calves.

I so hope all the bad press these guys are getting doesn't spatter and get all over "Table for 12". THAT is a great family who really loves and relates to one another and could teach J&K+the entourage so much. Betty is so relatable while Keight is so....regrettable.

Emily said...

So I just was able to watch the episode of Kate's Birthday Surprise... Did anyone notice how staged it was? Or was it a retelling of how the morning played out because the kids were all dressed in Charm City Cakes memorabilia, and Kate herself was wearing a pullover sweater that has the stupid logo on the front that the show tries to fade out.

Then there was one scene where Leah and most of the little kids are standing infront of the windows and Leah goes "Everyone yell the bus is here, and mommy will give us a piece of chocolate" Can this be anymore staged? She is bribing her kids with candy to make it look cute?

It was completely fake, and ridiculous. She no longer looks like a mom with her horrible hair cut, outfits and tan.

It is heartbreaking what a biatch this woman is to her children. The behavior that she so enjoyed inflicting on Jon by bossing him around 24/7, she is now obviously inflicting on her children, constantly yelling out in her annoying voice, orders to do this, do that, don't do this, don't do that.

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

I went to the Access Hollywood site and couldn't find that video, but this is telling me that Kate is ignorant of her bad behavior while the cameras are rolling (good for the kids because this is documented). I think she could have been trying to be funny, but it was mean and she is one sicko. This woman is cruel and I hope Jenn Stocks and the old crew come forward.

MrsNieldsNotOK said...

There's something wrong with this K8/Steve Nield thing but I can't put my finger on it.
They COULDN'T be THAT obtuse to be flaunting it so, ---could they? Even IF KHate were that dumb, why would "professional bodyguard" and older man, Steve, be so stupid? ESP being married?!
It's either a publicity stunt, or, they have lost their minds .
And I do NOT think Mrs. Neild is "OK " with ANY of this.
Also: What Normal Man would WANT to get involved with KHate??!!?

TV exploits children in ‘reality’ shows that put ratings first
By Jeffrey M. McCall

Thursday, June 04, 2009

Without eight kids to parade around on television, nobody would care about Jon and Kate Gosselin or their supposed marital troubles.

But because Jon and Kate have eight cute kids, they have a “reality” show, “Jon & Kate Plus 8,” on national television.

Because they supposedly have marital difficulties, a flood of media attention has ensued, resulting in the show’s highest ratings in its four-plus seasons.

Jon and Kate are adults and can decide for themselves how much of their personal laundry they want to air in front of the nation’s television gawkers.

Their kids, however, are another story. They can’t opt out.

Growing up in the fishbowl created by national television automatically changes the kids’ lives, and not necessarily for the better.

Privacy is sacrificed. Emotional moments become “good television” in the eyes of the producers.

Years from now, the kids will still be identified as the Plus 8. The chances of their having regular lives are by now pretty slim, and they are getting smaller with each episode and each rumor about their parents’ problems.

As nearly everyone knows by now, “reality” television shows are, indeed, heavily concocted and contrived.

The producers manipulate and plan the unfolding “real” events. In “Jon and Kate Plus 8,” there is no show without the contributions of eight children.

To shoot the happenings and excursions of eight kids takes a lot of production planning, a lot of video equipment, a lot of kid manipulation, and generally, a lot of demands on the kids.

Kids in reality television shows, by the way, aren’t protected under the same regulations that child actors for movies or television dramas are.

None of this is to say the Gosselin kids are being abused or intentionally harmed, but a life in front of a television production crew is not a normal life.

TV exploits children in ‘reality’ shows that put ratings first
By Jeffrey M. McCall

(Part 2)

TLC, the cable channel airing the show, benefits from high ratings and sells commercials accordingly. Jon and Kate get a lot of media attention, sell books and make money.

Entertainment magazines pump sales by putting Jon and Kate on the cover. And what do the kids get out of this? Nothing. They are merely props in a television production.

The television industry in recent seasons has shown an increasingly risky disregard for the interests of kids in reality programming.

CBS aired the ethically bankrupt “Kid Nation” in 2007 by finding 40 parents who were willing to rent out their kids for $5,000 each.

The kids were sent away for six weeks to run their own town, living at first with only one outdoor toilet to accommodate all of them.

The kids harassed, pushed and belittled each other for a national TV audience. CBS planned “Kid Nation 2,” but, thankfully, it has yet to hit the program schedule.

Then there was NBC’s horrifying presentation of the “Baby Borrowers” last summer in which teen couples took charge of other people’s babies for several days.

Billed as a social experiment to see whether teens could be good parents, the show deteriorated into scenes of bleep-filled verbal violence, babies vomiting and toilet issues.

This dehumanizing stunt used real babies as props for crass, commercial television purposes.

It was one thing when the Gosselin kids were younger, the show had low ratings and the parents were leading the happy lives of a young married couple.

The increased ratings, the ages of the kids and the national attention gathered by a potentially messy marital situation changes the equation.

It won’t be as much fun following the kids as they endure a possible family breakup.

Now, it would be best if the network producers would do the responsible thing and draw this show to a quick, happy ending, letting the Gosselins depart to find a family life out of the limelight.

Jon seems hinting that he is ready for the show to end, complaining in recent interviews that the family has no privacy and saying, “I did not sign up for a public scrutiny of everything.”

American viewers could help push that network decision by leaving the Jon & Kate audience and finding programs to watch that don’t exploit children.

Brian said...

On Entertainment Tonight, they interviewed a wacko psychiatrist who said that her heart broke for poor Kate. lol She said she just wanted to hug her....or something along those delusional lines. She said Kate is desperate for someone to love her and support her and noted how very, very hard she is working for her kids. WTH?!?! She was so sure Kate was heartbroken over Jon's choice to not spend her birthday with her. HOW OUT OF THE LOOP can one be? They are separated. Geez. I need to stop watching that show....I'm realizing how ridiculous they are in last few nights.

******

You are SO right! That shrink obviously watched the birthday episode, and only that episode, and has NO clue what Kate is all about, or what kind of person Jon is, how hateful Kate is, etc.

It was almost funny "she needs a hug, she is so starved for love. She is so under-appreciated." LMAO.

Yes, I am sure Jon totally lacks appreciation for her constant nagging, snarky attitude, hateful comments, and oh yes, being gone for nearly an entire month, "working" in her 5 star hotels and spas, squeezing in the public appearance wherein she is sitting on her arse signing her name, or talking about herself ad nauseum, while JON is at home, forced into a role he clearly does not desire, dealing with HER house ("it's all mine") HER children, etc.

Actually, she is partly right -- Kate is very needy. IMO amateur opinion, she has extremely low self-esteem, which is why she is so focused on control. Control is an obvious theme in Kate's life -- permeating every single conversation it seems. Control the children, control the husband, control your emotions, control the media, control the money, control the food. I guess if you can control everything around you, you feel more in control of yourself, and that makes her feel better about herself?

Anyway, the show started strong. They had some good information about how the children are actually working, not just being themselves. They even had a tally of the hours the children worked in one season, and well...it was MUCH more than the 2-3 hour a day that KON claims.

Of course Jon cannot openly admit their kids are being exploited while being interviewed by People Magazine or any other media outlet. But, I believe he does know the truth. There is a time and a place for these things to come to fruition, and I have faith that Jon is on the right path. He is a quiet man, and a very intelligent one. Give him time.
-----------------------------------
Sorry, but Jon is NOT very intelligent.
Not by any stretch of the imagination.

COVER STORY: Witness: Kate "Completely Ignored" Kids on Trip

http://www.usmagazine.com/news/witness-kate-completely-ignored-kids-on-trip-200926-0

"According to several fellow vacationers, Kate Gosselin didn't pay her eight kids much attention on their getaway to Bald Head Island, N.C., when the camera crew wasn't around - even though she pulled twin daughters Madelyn and Cara, 8, out of school for the for-TV trip."

Soccer Mom said...

OMG! Did you see Access Hollywood Wed night? They showed unseen prior footage of Kate and the kids being interviewed. Mady asked her mom for a drink saying that she had not had a drink all day (probably against child labor laws).

-----------------
I was just so sad to see that footage and I don't even know Mady, can you imagine how heart broken Kevin and Jodi must have been to see it. Although I have a feeling they've witnessed much worse in person. Plus don't forget their long discarded grandparents, and friends like Beth and Bob. Just heartbreaking that she would do that. Kate is a waste of human space.

I saw that! Kate told a tup that she was getting spanked as soon as they got home, and threatened the others that they were getting spanked, too, if they didn't get quiet. She was getting ready to be interviewed about Octomom. She was about ready to beat some arse right then and there and obviously she didn't realize it was being caught on tape.

That was the REAL Kate Gosselin right there! That is what goes on at that house when the cameras red light isn't on! That's why those kids RUN to time-out. They know they will get spanked if they don't.

I truly believe the trouble began when Kate fell in love with her bodyguard, Steve. He is distinguished, articulate and very intelligent. Kate has outgrown the "Party Boy" stage, Jon is still in. Steve is much more mature and more on Kate's level.

"Jon does [not] view the show as a job, necessarily, but he does recognize that the show has provided incredible opportunities for him and his family, so he'll continue to do the show as long as it benefits his children," Tan said. "But every year, when there's a renewal contract that comes along, he does say that they have family discussions about it. They bring their children into the room. The children account for 80 percent of the family. And if anybody doesn't like the cameras around, then they'll stop production."

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

Yeah, right. These "responsible" parents allow 6 five-year-olds and 2 eight-year-olds to determine the direction their family takes.

UN-freakin'-believeable.

Gosselin rejects the idea that his children are being exploited by the TV production.

"I don't even want to use that word, because I think it's ridiculous," he told People magazine. "We have healthy, happy, well-adjusted, educated kids. They're bouncing around and having a good time."

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

"well-adjusted, educated kids"????

No way in H--- the tups are well-adjusted and they most certainly are not educated.

Perhaps he is as delusional as Kate.

_______________

Kate didn't fall in 'love', she fell in LUST for bodyguard. "Kate's level"? OMGosh, please!! Kate's level is white trash trying to be something she's not.

Shilohlight said...

Yes, but Kate has fallen in love with an illusion. What woman wouldn't want a handsome prince to follow her every move and protect her? Kate is living in a fairy tale with this bodyguard that is so far from reality. First, she is paying him almost $2 gramd a day. He would not be there unless he was getting his money. Second, there will come a time when this thing will run its course and this guy will either move on to a new venture or quit or whatever.. but it cannot last for the rest of Kate's life - i.e. that this hunk will follow her every move and accentuate her own thoughts of "I am beautiful and wonderful". When this runs its course and kate actually has to get to know the reality of this person and I doubt he is going to naturally follow her around.... well then Kate is headed for severe heartbreak brought on by her own immaturity. Kate will come crushing down. Kate reminds me of the character that Mary Tyler Moore played in the movie, "Ordinary People".

Shilohpeace said...

I think Kate is a beautiful girl on the outside and if she were even the least bit genuinely nice on the inside, she would not be picked apart now like she is. It is hard to fathom that millions of people (millions!) do not like this woman and are fearful of what she is doing to her children. What a horrible spot to be in? On that note, though, did anyone notice that Kate had two crooked front teeth in high school = yuk, egads!! (joking as to Kate's reactions to Mady's less than perfect teeth). Guess that is what the braces were all about.

What a wonderful, democratic way of handling it !!!!!! Bravo to Jon !!!!!! I can just imagine the family conversation:

Kate: "JONNNNNNNNNNNNNNN - herd up the tups & twins & get down here THIS INSTANT!"

Jon: Ok.....*mumble mumble mumble*

Kate: JONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN

Jon: Coming! *mumble mumble mumble*

An hour later, Jon and Kate and the children are gathered 'round the table for their annual Resign Meeting.

Kate: "Okay group *chomp chomp chomp* Here's what's happening - either we go on with the show or Mommy & Daddy will have to go back to work and won't EVER be with you during the day - we will be too tired when we get home to even talk to you - we won't be able to afford the not-a-nanny anymore - no more Disney World trips - no spa days for anybody but me - and oh yeah - *chomp chomp chomp* Mady will probably be in charge...."

**A shudder goes round the table**

Kate: "Anyway....*chomp chomp chomp* - we'll have to move from this house - probably to a house smaller than we had before - and - oh yeah *chomp chomp chomp* the dogs will be history.

Jon: "...but kids, if you don't want to do the show anymore-we'll stop now"

A chorus of 8 little voices rings out "WE LOVE THE SHOW !!!!!!!!"

goldengirl said...

********
Ummm...Didn't one of the kids put a sign on their door that said something to the effect of "private. no cameras allowed"?

Sounds like one kid made their feeling abunduntly clear.

As people have been saying, who are the parents here? Your kids are 5 and 8. They have not lived long enough to possess that level of discernment and reasoning. They can't sit down and say "Jon, Kate, we really feel that itvis no longer in our best interests to continue this show."

And Jon and Kate have too much of a conflict of interest to be able to make good choices for their kids. That's the problem when your family is your busuness. I've known families who run a store or restaurant where the kids go to school and then help at the restaurant until closing. It's not right in that case either. Kids need to have time to be kids.

Ms.Peach said...

Kate will get hers in the end. The filming has made her rich, but the filming will be her downfall. All those unseen clips and out takes from the episodes can be used in court. It's all coming out now. This woman thinks she can outsmart the viewing public. Oh, she'll be famous, alright, just like she wants to be.

Pragmatist said...

Sorry, but I disagree with the commenter who hopes J&K's problems don't influence reaction to "Table for 12."

If it's wrong to exploit children, and have cameras in their faces distorting their daily reality -- IT'S WRONG. It shouldn't make a difference how great the parents are or how loving they are or how "normal."

Big families -- or too-tall teenagers, or LP families -- aren't sideshows. Children need and deserve privacy to grow up healthy. Let's stop the nonsense right now, FOR ALL THESE SHOWS.

BoycottGosselins said...

Did anyone else pick up on this empassioned statement on the Gosselin site archives?

"Kate and I pray for a strong marriage that through all this stress our relationship stays intact. We pray that others may see how difficult our lives are right now and that we are trully thankful for everything everyone has done for us. We pray that Mady and Cara continue to be strong and loving through this time of need and stress. We ask the Lord that we have faith in him and we rely on him to provide for us spiritually and financially.

We ask others to please pray for us as we go through terrible financial and family hardships. It is hard to let people into our personal lives but we are praying that people could walk in our shoes for one day and understand that God has given us these children and we are responsible to raise them the best we can. Please pray that Kate and I can do this with help of all our awesome volunteers that God has provided us. Amen."

IMO, this goes A LONG WAY to explain the begging, entitlement mindset they've had since the beginning. They've ALWAYS begged handouts and expected and "prayed" for help. The only difference now is that the "help" comes in the form of free luxury vacations, million-dollar homes, plastic surgery, etc.

Given the entitlement these two have felt all along, it's no surprise that a narcissist like Kate would purposefully see all the money and freebies as some she "deserves" and something God "wants her to have."

And isn't it said that the "strong marriage" is the one thing they both seem to have decided they -- and their kids -- can live without.
