Jeesh - and today, Billy Mays - the OxiClean - OrangeGlo - TV pitchman - 50 years old. Reports said he was on a plane, going back home to Tampa when the plane he was on landed & blew a tire or two - very bumpy & he said he hit his head but "no problem because I have a hard head"....no cause of death as of yet..these "bumps" on the head (Natasha Richardson) are making me think I need a "life helmet" !!!

Yo!Philly said...

AMEN!

Mikemom said...

Sharla, you are absolutely correct, I work for a company related to the magazines, all the weekly publications are comming out with Michael Jackson on the cover, including special publications. Hopefully this will fade the Gosselins away....

SaskatoonFather said...

Kate, you read this blog. We know it. This section will remain empty to show you the kids do matter, and you do not. Figure it out.

I think if the Gosselins faded into the darkness, I would not miss them. We have all had our fill of Jon and Kate. It's time for them to move on.

Well - I see they finally made it - changing of the guard I guess. From what I can see though nothing outstanding about the hair - since 3 days previous it was under hats.

Unfortunately, although they may be temporarily off the front pages, they're not going to fade away. And they shouldn't fade away until all of the issues regarding their children are resolved.

I second that. Couldn't agree with you more. Very well said.

I really do hope Jon writes a tell all....and blows Kate the Great Fake right out of the water.

I'm waiting for Kate to do something completely ridiculous to get back in the limelight. I bet it's driving her crazy not being the center of the world.

CanadianGirl said...

It took the deaths of an Angel and a musical genius to knock J & K from their tabloid thrones...I bet he's happy to be out of the spotlight and she's just a teensy bit jealous she not on top anymore.

Peas and Carrots said...

Undoubtedly even if the show ends the exploitation will continue in some form, which is worrisome. I can't see it ever ending completely. They will always be a spectacle because of the hype that KON has created over the years.

It truly will never go away as long as TLC can drag episodes out of the closet when they need to fill space. Lets hope that I am wrong.

I hope this disaster isn't repeated on TLC with other families and that they don't start another round of 'reality-not' tv shows.

I am thoroughly disgusted at TLC's choice of shows that involve children; Jon & Kate, The Duggars, Table for 12 and finally one of the worst Toddler's and Tiaras - which I thought was worse than all of the others put together due to the content and potential exploitation of children. It was enough just seeing the promo's and it made me wonder what were they thinking when they thought up this concept? I never watched.

As for Jon & Kate +8, I bet the folks at TLC are madly running around trying to figure out how to salvage this and spin it so they still have a product left in the end. K8 even had a slip of the tongue at the end of how the "show must go on." NO IT DOESN'T.

I have drastically cut back my viewing of TLC and hardly even watch it now, that is by choice because of the programming that involves children. I don't find it entertaining, enriching, informing, or educational.

For a channel that bills themselves as "The Learning Channel" there has been nothing educational to learn here except how not to fall into the greed trap, how to ruin a marriage and how not to raise kids. I guess they did teach us something. Sadly though at the infinite cost of 10 innocent children.

If either one of these morons pens a tell all book about their relationship then they truly don't give a damn about the kids or their mental health.

Could a judge rule that they can't write anything until the children are at least 18 years of age? Seems like the only sane thing to do.

Jon minus Kate-finally! said...

They are replaying all the Gosselins episodes of the past month today- I can't even watch a second of them- I am so over this family and the kids living in this studio- I mean mansion......

Mad in Miami said...

I dislike Kate and how she has exploited her children for monetary gains; however, doesn't anyone see what an idiot Jon is?

He is a 32 year old man wearing clothing meant for TEEN/young twenties BOYS. He acts like a CHILD. If he would MAN UP and act like a man, maybe Kate wouldn't have had to yell and scream at him so much and order him around like a child.

MAN UP, JON!

GO GET A REAL JOB AND SUPPORT YOUR FAMILY!!!
Quit hanging out with young adults 10 years younger than you.

Jon is an idiot!

Just saw the blue bikini pic - and it just hit me. She wore it out in front of her house to prove that she's not pregnant, given that was the latest rumor to be floating around thanks to Blind Gossip.

http://www.sixgosselins.com/

During this very difficult time we will be working to focus solely on the needs of our family. This includes no longer commenting publicly or reacting to media stories and speculation. Our goal is to do the very best for our children and that will be done as privately as possible. We appreciate the understanding, support and well wishes from so many.

Thank you

[me]: What MONSTERS they are! "We're handling it privately", except when we're not; "big announcement" episode, KEIGHT's sob story to ass-kissing People magazine. Just a couple of whores. But it's tragic that it's the kids who suffer.

teenytinyone said...

Could that possibly be one of Jon's brothers in the latest Just Jared pics? I hope so - those kids need all of the love and support they can get right about now.

Reconnecting with extended family is hopefully only the beginning of of the positive changes Khate so frequently mentions lately. (insert eye roll here)

Devan said...

Love her or hate her - I have to give it to Kate.... nothing stops her.

Tidy Cat said...

Interesting that we will hear and hear about Michael Jackson's sad childhood and how he was used by all the men who are now sniffling on tv about his talent and his untimely death.

The lesson is right here, Kate and Jon. Using your kids to make money makes you the same kind of horror that is Joe Jackson.

What a culture.

just wondering said...

Well, it looks like the kids are finally getting some extended family time. If I'm not mistaken, that's Jon's brother playing frisbee in the yard with him.

So happy to see it!

Pauper Princess said...

Word is that Jon's new girlfriend, Deanna Hummel, will appear on the show when it resumes in August. "Deanna's role isn't expected to be big, but because she's part of Jon's life, she'll be filmed," a New York Daily News insider said. A TLC network insider denies the claim though, telling Entertainment Tonight that "there are no plans to use" Deanna in the show.

Oh I definitley would not miss the Gosselins. I can't stand that they are still on T.V. Last night channel surfing I noticed that they were showing this past month's diaster shows. How awful of TLC to keep showing these episodes. Disgusting. Looks like Jon has become the weekend Dad and Kate the weekly Mom. Why are the paps still taking pictures? This family needs to go away. I am getting tired of the Michael Jackson story though, again, enough is enough.

Pilgrim Soul said...

Jon's arrested that's for sure, but I do think he's the lesser of the two evils and after he goes through his little "mid-life" crisis, he will grow up, hopefully learn from what happened, and be the father his kids need. Psychologically, it just may not be possible for this guy to assume responsibility yet. Yes, he has been excessively passive up to this point, but I feel like he's not a terrible guy and he was sort of "frozen" in latent adolescence when Kate snared him. He has not matured since. Once he gets all that "I missed my youth" crap out of his system, he may step up to the plate, finally. At least I hope so. In the older episodes, he was a hands on Dad, the only one diapering, feeding, strapping kids into carseats, and not least of all showing them genuine tenderness and affection. Maybe I'm wrong, but I truly hope he can pull it together for the kids sake. He's the only hope they've got.

***********************************
Would be a bestseller for sure....wonder if Katie Irene will try to stop this from happening....Kate has been vocal on the show and in the press about Jon, how everything is Jon's fault, Jon won't talk to her, etc....Jon has been pretty much silent about Kate, and I think part of the reason is that his attorney may have advised him that he looks better by not spewing hate like Kate does...and also, seems like he's biding his time till he gets his book deal in place....and then he'll let it all out in the book...why give all the juicy details for free when people will pay good money to read all about Kate 'behind the scenes'??

They need to find a judge and an advocate that relize that EVERYTHING belongs to the CHILDREN!

TUNDRA said...

My guess is the tabloids are attempting to find out how the investigation by the labor dept. of PA is going, as well as talking to any former household and production staff. Tips, photos, video and audio, are all fair game to the tab mags, celebrity gossip websites and entertainment news shows. Whatever dirt is out there, it will be dug up.

You have expressed your feelings about Jon and what Jon should do as far as 'manning up' for his family. I find it interesting that you are more upset and have more to say about Jon's clothing of choice and the age of the individuals that he chooses to socialize with than you are with Kate and the EXPLOITATION of her eight children for monetary gain. IMO, it is obvious that Jon is making an attempt to 'man up' by taking the first step and removing himself from a toxic marriage and the individual (ie his wife) who for 9 + years felt the need to belittle and demean his abilitites and treated him like a 9th child.

Momof2 said...

Yes, they've fallen off my radar too, I am sick of them. Life is much bigger than the Gosselins, I think people are just over saturated with them and are now looking away.

I noticed in the grocery store someone had turned the People Mag around at the checkout....I think people are catching on...and my DD pointed out in the dentist office that someone drew a mustache and horns on Kate's pic on the cover of the issue in the waiting room....cracked me up!

abbra said...

In light of the Gosselin Divorce proceedings I hope the judge in the case will appoint a legal guardian for the Gosselin Children and for their financial assets, if they have any left by the time their parents get through spending the money on themselves.

A Mom-ynous said...

New report indicates that Billy Mays stated he was grogging and not feeling well so went to bed.

I immediately thought of Natasha Richardson when they mentioned the plane ride and the above comment that I just read on CNN further confirms my suspicions (sp?).

I hit my head last week just above my temple and I was a nervous wreck wondering and kept monitoring myself, but nothing ever manifested. I did have a very sensitive bruise that is finally almost healed 5 days later.

But who wants to sound like a hypochondriac for running to the doctor for banging your head and demanding a CT Scan.

Those puppies are $1000 a pop.

I would presume that if this is what happened to him that his headache came in his sleep or something but wasn't strong enough to wake him up--or quickly knocked him out.

Natasha had the serious headache but quickly deteriorated once it set on.


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

"Could a judge rule that they can't write anything until the children are at least 18 years of age? Seems like the only sane thing to do."

Honestly, I think that may have some trouble under the first amendment.

As I pointed out previously, there is a revered sextuplet mom who authors books about her sextuplets and makes her income and all the idiots who write tell all books.

Free speech isn't something that can easily be restricted and for Jon to write a tell all book about Kate so that he can communicate his side of the story--I just don't agree with doing that nor think that it could stand up to constitutional scrutiny.

I would also think the judge would be limited legally to restrict only what the children are personally involved in that produces a profit.

Pauper Princess said...

Not true:
“There are no plans to use her,” a rep for TLC said of the Deanna Hummel rumors. “We are in hiatus and all future episodes haven’t even been planned.” The rumor was launched in today’s New York Daily News, which said “Deanna’s role isn’t expected to be big, but because she’s part of Jon’s life, she’ll be filmed.”

Pauper Princess,

No they are not using Deanna Hummel once the new episodes come out. That's just a lot of hype and rumors. I don't think it's possible for TLC to sink that low.

And with those bikini pics, did anyone else think Kate's skin is getting kinda leathery looking?

In yesterdays' photos from Kates return.. it looks like she bought at least Kara a bikini.
She is holding up the bottoms in one shot; and doesn't look too thrilled about it!!
She seems more and more the "sporty" type and I love how she chooses to wear the sport shorts..when she has a choice that is...

Carolyn said...

I'd like to chime in here a moment. So many people are bashing Jon for dressing young, dating young etc.

Having been in his position I'd like to share some of my story to help ya'll see another side of his actions if ya'll don't mind.

I am a domestic abuse survivor, barely. The Ex is doing 25 to life for "accidentally beating" wife #3 to death (I was wife #2). That could have been me. I got jumped out of my marriage, literally. I ended up in the ICU and with some permanent internal damage that will never be the same. It was during that recover time in the hospital I knew I had to get out otherwise the next time I wouldn't be so lucky. With much fear I arranged to stay in a safe house in a neighboring county until I knew I was no longer in harms way from him.

I met my exhusband when I was 18, married at 20 and divorced at 24. (Thankfully no kids)

Once I knew that I wouldn't return to him I started to live again. I didn't pick up at age 24, but I went back to 18.

I was always told by him "you can not get a tattoo, you can not body pierce you can not wear this.. you can not wear that."

What were the first things I did... I went shopping and got shirts short, and low cut to show off what I was forced to hide. I got jeans that fit, shoes that were stylish, new hair style and color and at the end of the day I went and got my belly button pierced and a tattoo to prove that I was indeed free because I knew with those two additions he's never want me back. It was my insurance to freedom.

This is exactly what Jon is doing. He's openly doing things Kate has not allowed him to do for at least 10 years.

Honestly, his shirts aren't bad. It's just not how we are used to seeing him. With Kate out of his life he's choosing to wear what he wants and I say kudo's to him for doing it.

As for younger gals, it's because that's the age he felt his life was "over". Any one he's with right now are pretty much going to be classified as "transition women" any way. (Sometimes the transition person is "the one" but not usually) I say give him a year to get his bearings and find his feet and see what 2010 brings him. Right now like I was, he's probably afraid that his own shadow will start barking at him like Kate did/does.

I wish him the best. He's going through a life altering change and he just needs to find his way no matter how poorly people feel he's dressing himself. At least he found his cajones and is putting them to use now.

I wish him the best. With Kate as an exwife he's going to need all of best wishes and good luck he can get.

Jon is Okay said...

I'm with you, Carolyn. I've seen that same phenomena with lots of people, abused and otherwise, when getting out of a nightmare marriage.

Me, I like Jon. If he were a neighbor or a friend of a friend, I know I could be around him, laugh and have a good time, knowing that he truly loves his kids. When I see him with the kids outside or the dogs it is exactly like most of the guys we know who are married with little ones. And they, in some ways, are just big kids with their little kids. They know when to shift into dad mode and get serious, but the joy they give their kids is just immeasurable.

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

"Placing the entire family and now its dirty laundry on public display has become the Gosselin’s livelihood. The decision to continue with the show is proof that Jon and Kate do not want to bite the hand that feeds them. Unfortunately, they lack a certain level of introspection necessary to be the positive role models of parenting that many hold them out to be. Jon and Kate just don’t seem phased by or willing to accept the fact that the show has and will continue to create problems for their family’s life. While it is an admirable goal for parents to want to provide their children with more material wealth and life experiences than what they may have had, to what lengths should they go to achieve this goal? Also, where is the line drawn between what a parent is trying to achieve for their own personal gain and societal advancement versus what they are doing solely to promote and protect the best interests of their children? Jon and Kate have fooled themselves and tried to manipulate the public into thinking these two outcomes are one in the same. They are not. While it may not be illegal but should be, it is highly unethical to use children, who have no true decision making capacity, as the tools to generate the primary source of income for a family. This is particularly so when the basis of the income generation is through the blatant public exposure of those children’s private lives and emotions? For the Gosselin children, unlike child actors, there is no separation between their real life and their work. People need to wake up and be reminded that we no longer live in a feudal society where it was important to have multiple children to perform the labor of the fields."

Wow, they hit that one DEAD ON didn't they?

Is the Gosselin family's 15 minutes about to run out?

Not likely! But….

Kate Gosselin's upcoming Love is in the Mix: Making Meals into Memories is being postponed from its original November release date.

The book features recipes, organic eating tips, and "meaningful mealtime blessings," but its promise of "an inside look at one of America's most close-knit families" just doesn't have the same appeal now that the family is going through a very public divorce.
from PerezHilton:

Kate's previous two books with publishers Zondervan - Multiple Blessings: Surviving to Thriving with Twins and Sextuplets and Eight Little Faces - were both bestsellers.

No date for the new release yet.

Could this be why Kate said they had been separated 2 years in the divorce filing? So everything would be hers. Because how much did they really acquire between the date of marriage & when the show started?

Jon and Kate Gosselin No Longer Speaking to Media

Aww, did the poor Gosselins get knocked off the headlines? Did they have give a little poke to remind people they are still there? Shameful.

BarbMae said...

Alright. TLC has reported that Jon and Kate will stop giving media interviews "for the sake of their children".... YEAH RIGHT!! Obviously TLC realized that shoving Kate down our throats as the "victim" backfired big time. Now if only the paps will stop taking pictures of them but that doesn't look like that will quit anytime soon. Regarding debate on who the kids are more comfortable with. Please go to the OK magazine website and check out the 23 pictures of Jon's Saturday with the kids and then check out the 21 pictures of Kate's back home on Sunday with the kids. There is a definite difference in the attitudes of the children. Kate is admonishing either Joel or Collin (at least she didn't spank him) but body language says it all and check out the meltdowns of the kids when they are near her. Cara looks like she is having a big meltdown around Kate. People say a picture says 1,000 words and these pictures of these 2 parents taking care of the kids separately speaks volumes. Let me know if I'm on the right path on this one. It makes me sad to see what a difference one day makes in the lives of these 8 innocent children. I think the custody arrangement should be reversed.

Just read the above article on elitestv.com and it just hit me that the high viewer numbers recently aren't really fans, but people who are getting their thrills by watching this family, particularly Kate, self destruct. They are watching much in the same manner as a sibling watches in glee when another sibling gets a punishment for which they do indeed deserve. You may say that I'm preaching to the choir by posting on this site, but I have seen many of you in the past days admit that you are watching. Stop it.

I would buy Jon's tell-all just to stick it to K8!

Bev said...

I was just reading a statement Jon & Kate made saying they will no longer be commenting publicly or reacting to media stories and speculation. They are taking this time to deal with it privately for their children. We all know what that means... They are not going to discuss their personal life until August when TLC runs new episodes.
They want to make sure they get the ratings. They use those kids as excuses to much. They are so full of crap. Disgusting!

Laurie said...

If you'll look at the pictures in people - every picture with kate looks posed (especially the one where she is reading them a book) while the pictures with jon look natural. He looks like a dad with his kids. I think the kids are more comfortable around him.

A Mom-ynous said...

With Jon and his young duds...

I have no issue.

I am trying to dress "younger" but not "trashy".

My outfits are stylish for my 20s though I am in my 30s.

I am not abused by my spouse, but there is no reason that I had to be stuck in the rut of looking like a SAHM and being frumpy.

Also--it is Jon who has always had the fashion sense (according to Kate I believe). Remember the episode where they went shopping at Gap (whose dime it was is irrelevent). Wasn't it Jon providing the fashion tips?

I don't mind the studs either.

If you look at old photos--he was in a leather jacket and looking "cool" (well in his mind anyway--I didn't think it looked cool!)

I think Jon is returning to his former fashion ways after a bout with conservativism.

I don't think abuse had anything to do with that. I don't think a mid-life crisis had anything to do with that. I don't think divorce had anything to do with that (though it made it easier!)

Jeffery said...

Thank you TLC for a nice recap of ten year show tonight. The kids will have a 10 year recap of their parents. (the kids would not want to watch 100 episodes out of habit, who watches themselves).

Do it for the kids, make them proud of their parents before they have a chance at alternate reality. The beatles tune yesterday is catchy.

We are not stupid Katie Irene. We know what you are up to.

But as I view them...these photos remind me of how Presidents and Royalty bring out their children for a playtime photo op. It isn't real to me when they did this with Prince Wils and Harry when they were little and I am getting the same vibe looking at the Jon pics.

Kate is STILL wearing her wedding rings. Is she delusional?

I finally got to check Sunday's newspaper and there was an OpEd about The Disaster That Is Gosselin and health insurance. I guess everyone is trying to get a piece of this pie.

Go figure...
So they stay relevant and in the news spotlight, in fear of being overshadowed by the recent death notices and tributes.
Jon and Kate release yet another statement.
Geez. Go away already!

oh they are NOT going to speak to the press any longer...BUT that announcement did NOT come til AFTER she made sure that People Magazine threw her a "PITY PARTY"

she is pathetic....and I will also be one of the first in line if Jon writes a tell it all book

Bev said...
I was just reading a statement Jon & Kate made saying they will no longer be commenting publicly or reacting to media stories and speculation. They are taking this time to deal with it privately for their children. We all know what that means... They are not going to discuss their personal life until August when TLC runs new episodes.
They want to make sure they get the ratings. They use those kids as excuses to much. They are so full of crap. Disgusting!

Tell all book possibly in the works for Jon according to STAR Mag.

This just made my day:o))) I knew there was a reason that Jon was just being so passive. He had an ace up his sleeve all along. And stupid Kate fed right into his hands. That is one book I will be sure to buy.
If it's only a roomer, than maybe it will put the idea in Jons head.
You go Jon expose her for the bitch that she is.

3rd Rock From The Sun said...

The pictures at okmagazine.com are very interesting. Jon and the kids (and the dogs) look very happy. It's good to see Jon playing with the kids.

However, in the last picture of Kate with Mady, Mady is crying. In most of the pictures of Kate, she is frowning or making some kind of angry face.

I really do think that the kids enjoy being with Jon more than Kate.

Just read the above article on elitestv.com and it just hit me that the high viewer numbers recently aren't really fans, but people who are getting their thrills by watching this family, particularly Kate, self destruct. They are watching much in the same manner as a sibling watches in glee when another sibling gets a punishment for which they do indeed deserve. You may say that I'm preaching to the choir by posting on this site, but I have seen many of you in the past days admit that you are watching. Stop it.

I'm calling Botox on Katie Irenes' "11"s!
Just checked out the pictures at Just Jared.
Quite overdressed for grocery shopping; and her shoes always seem inappropriate to either the occasion (today) or the outfit she has on for some reason..
Bet she's all flirty with that new hunk of a bodyguard she's got.
Must be trying to make Jon jealous.
NOT watching tonight.....

Sidney said...

Looking at the OK Magazine pics right now--

Why is Jon playing in the front yard with the kids?

6/29/2009 2:11 PM
.....................

Yes, they could be in the back yard where they are alone, no paps there.

But, you know what, I don't mind this at all.

It looks natural. They do look like they are all enjoying it.

Of course, it was all planned, but I think it is just fine.

Jon needs all the ammo he can get when it comes to the divorce stuff ...

Just went there and viewed the 20+ photos of Jon and the children this weekend; next viewed the 20+ pictures of Kate and the children this weekend.

Wow. Pictures do say a thousand words. Wow.

Yep,
the body language, facial expressions, even distance they keep from her is so obvious.

I don't see how anyone can say this woman as a 'good mom who cares about her kids."

Geez.....

Show these pictures to the judge please.

Carolyn said...
I'd like to chime in here a moment. So many people are bashing Jon for dressing young, dating young etc.

Having been in his position I'd like to share some of my story to help ya'll see another side of his actions if ya'll don't mind.

I am a domestic abuse survivor, barely.
--------

Way to go, Carolyn! You got out! (me too, alas)

I agree with you about Jon. the first thing I did when I was free was to go buy myself a fire-engine-red SUV, cuz the pig had insisted on white the last time.

that kind of freedom requires a little light-headed celebration.

Connie said...

Amazing that the kids have gone with Kate to the grocery store more lately than they ever did in their whole lives, previous to this mad scramble to get all the photos of Kate being a mom "out there."

They were always left at home previous to this last mess.

So NOW she takes them to the stores, but such poor timing.

The chance they will see their lives played out on trashy magazine covers is greater than it has ever been.

Kate, don't talk any more.

Don't drag the kids out any more.

And hey, just for snark, can't stand those ugly shoes, either.

Sadie said...

I watched both "The Insider" and Entertainment Tonight and there was NOTHING on J&K on either show! NO mention of tonight's show anywhere but TLC! For the first time in weeks they got no extra promotion for their show.

THANK YOU MICHAEL JACKSON!!!

Ladylou said...

Give me a break.... Kon now states "we are no longer talking to the media, for the sake of the kid's this will remain a private affair". Or something to that effect.
Real story is the media doesn't want to talk to you!
With all the deaths in Hollywood and other places this week the Kon's have been left behind.
Funny how their comment comes by about now.
They sure know how to play the game for a part time nurse and an IT analyst (whatever that was) that they were a few short years ago.

Snerk said...

My money is on the judge having issued a gag order after Kate's people display hit the stands.

I went to the grocery store today also and like Kate I had on full makeup, styled hair, short dress and 4 inch heels.......not. What a tool she is.

Kate, on your next publicity stunt...errr... trip to the store how about taking one or more of your sons?

a Giant mistake said...

I recall Kate saying on the air that when she brought ALL the kids to Party City for the pinatas, for their 5th birthday, that they were SO excited because the RARELY go to the stores. Now all or a sudden she doesn't leave the house without at least 2 kids with her.
Smile for the camera.

More likely, to make Steve jealous. I'm thinking Steve wised up and dumped her. He's been gone since NC right? Unless he's been ordered to lay low while Kate's on her "Pity Me" parade (kinda hard playing the victim when you're constantly seen with your MARRIED lover).

Kate sure looked happy in NC with loverboy. She's back to her usual sour self without him.

Stay away Steve! You'll be SO glad you did!

Well, it certainly is good news, if factual, that the cookbook is on the back burner....Katie Irene must be livid....

Let's all hope, and pray, she does not take her anger out on her children....or those beautiful dogs.....

I'm going to guess the cookbook was pushed back so Jon can't collect any of the proceeds. Or did his entitlement to the $$ she earns end when they filed for divorce?

I've often wondered why she doesn't shop somewhere like Costco or Sam's Club where she could buy in bulk, but I figured it's because they wouldn't give her stuff for free. Lots of large families shop there.

Costco has lots of "organic" products, too.

Kate and Abel said...

It's very apparent that Kate was the one who wrote that they would no longer be giving interviews. I bet Jon was about to come out with a tell-all interview refuting her description of events and she needed a way to shut him up.

Now if he DOES come out with an interview, she can claim that he's not interested in protecting the children, like she is.

NewWester said...

I do not see J&K plus Eight taken off the air anytime soon. This is what I see happening.
The show comes back in August, the first show will have high ratings and then over the next month the ratings get lower and lower. By the end of September there will be a announcement from TLC that Jon and Kate have decided to reconcile and have called off the divorce.
The episode after the announcement will show Jon walking back into the house and all the children with smiles on their faces and Kate giving Jon a huge hug.
In reality both Jon and Kate have seen what happens when their gravy train (the tv show) is in danger of being cancelled and then forcing the two of them to have to get a real job! OH THE HORROR!!! Have made them bury the hatchet (instead of in each other's back) for the sake of their "children"
It may seem unlikely to some people but when you look at J&K's track record and also the fact this is a cash cow for TLC. I would not be surprised if all the parties are not considering that option right now . The children are cute but many people are just tuning in to the show to see J&K treat each other badly.People have been talking for years about how badly Kate treats Jon and the ratings have been through the roof with all the press the show has got lately. Watching the two of them go at each other is like seeing a train wreck. You just can not turn away

I'm Eye-Rolling, Puleeze said...

I guess I'm missing something, but what is it with Jon and Kate going to UPS? UPS delivers right to my front door. Is it that they have a locked gate and no one is allowed up their driveway? Other rich people I know have a button they can push from inside the house which opens the gate for access after 2-way talk on a speaker; then, the gate closes behind the delivery truck when they leave. If the paparazzi can climb over a short rail fence anyway, then what would be the point of a locked gate when they can get close to the house if they want to (ooh, maybe fear of the dogs? didn't think of that). Could somebody who is a local (love your posts!) help me understand the layout?

Kate does not appear to be a time-efficient person who combines her errands in any week's time; instead, she shops every day she's home. Can't convince me it's not about wanting to be photographed and trying to present an image of "just-a-mom" on an outing or errand with her kids. She could have bodyguards pick up packages and shop for her, or other staff she employs. I don't believe she's THAT bored, even though she has people to clean her house, cook, etc. and obviously has a lot of time on her hands now that she's not "working." If she was trying to reinvent her life and get through a divorce, it seems to me she'd present a different image than the happy, smiling woman out and around town (daily, in heels). Everybody's different, but I sure would be taking the opportunity to hunker down, hole up, heal, spend a lot of quiet time and also play time with my kids, all getting "fed" and nurtured through each other in tough times but at least in the setting of a beautiful pool, yards and house, not to mention newly-furnished and apparently decorated (professionally?) interiors. I know it's a production studio, but it's pretty nice digs...to jealous me, who lives in a teenyweeny house, it looks like a resort!

This statement released which says that neither Jon or Kate would be speaking to tabloids or reacting to news about them just made me laugh aloud at the computer screen. With every interview they've given, they've put the proverbial foot-in-mouth so OF COURSE the production company or lawyers are telling them to shut up so that they don't keep digging the grave deeper. The gag order came a little too late, folks!

In light of the Gosselin Divorce proceedings I hope the judge in the case will appoint a legal guardian for the Gosselin Children and for their financial assets, if they have any left by the time their parents get through spending the money on themselves.


I agree 100%! I hope this remains front and center in all of the pending drama between Kon.

Peas and carrots: "I have drastically cut back my viewing of TLC and hardly even watch it now, that is by choice because of the programming that involves children. I don't find it entertaining, enriching, informing, or educational."
********************************
Several weeks ago, I removed TLC entirely from my channel line-up/Tivo. I don't miss it at all. It made me feel good to purge it. I suggest everybody try it; you'll like it! It was instant gratification, like chocolate. (Small confession: I had a relapse and watched the divorce announcement, but I've quickly reinstated my discipline. I think my behavior is typical of trying to withdraw and curb an addiction. I will allow myself that one relapse. Believe me, it was enough to make me cured. That episode was just plain boring and anticlimactic!)

I think they have a mailbox at their local UPS store. Kate was shown reading mail there last week. If you have packages, mail, etc. delivered to the UPS store, you have to go get it. They don't deliver it to your house because, in effect, the UPS store is your mailing address. People who are gone a lot when the UPS delivery person comes sometimes get a box there, as do people who don't want others to know their street address.

I am sorry, but just who goes to the grocery store and consistantly wears platform slingbacks? For some reason that annoys me. It isn't as though she is coming from the office or anything.

My family has a home about 20 minutes away from theirs, also off the back roads, and I am able to at least find flip flops or sandals to make a quick store run. I have yet to see her wear anything with less than a 3" heel. Who does she think she is kidding?

Yeah, really does irk me, and I have no idea why.

Tidy Cat said...
Interesting that we will hear and hear about Michael Jackson's sad childhood and how he was used by all the men who are now sniffling on tv about his talent and his untimely death. The lesson is right here, Kate and Jon. Using your kids to make money makes you the same kind of horror that is Joe Jackson. What a culture.
*********************************
I hear you. I'm still reeling from that interview at the BET awards, hawking his new record label. His attitude was dismissive, and I hope it was only shock over his son's death.

How can it be that precious children are just a means...a vehicle...to get their parents the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow?

I felt pensive about this and considered the abundant vegetable plot just off my porch. It was our choice to make a garden; it didn't happen by accident. It's too big; it's a lot of work. If we neglect the summer garden, the little vegies can't grow properly. If we'd given the seeds the wrong plant food, they definitely wouldn't be flourishing. You have to grow your garden right. It's day in and day out; it takes your time and your hands-on effort. If you coax your plants to do something they're not meant to do, you take a risk on the finished garden product. You'll just be disappointed and feel like you haven't achieved a thing.

So how is a family any different? You must carefully tend the babes created for and by you if you want them to thrive. You've got to put your kids on the right course; let them enjoy their childhoods (childhood only comes around once). Guide them into adulthood with the right priorities. Your reward is a well-adjusted, centered, emotionally-healthy young person, ready for the big world. Your best life's work!

Pilgrim's Thoughtful Words said...

Pilgrim Soul, I liked the way you worded this about Jon:

"I feel like he's not a terrible guy and he was sort of "frozen" in latent adolescence when Kate snared him. He has not matured since. Once he gets all that "I missed my youth" crap out of his system, he may step up to the plate, finally. At least I hope so."

I'm pretty annoyed with him, but I sorta hope so, too. You make me feel hopeful when other times all seems hopeless for the Gosselin kids. Thanks for the comment.

Vicki said...

Carolyn, this post from you is really something! Thank you for this insight about Jon:

"I say give him a year to get his bearings and find his feet and see what 2010 brings him. Right now like I was, he's probably afraid that his own shadow will start barking at him like Kate did/does. I wish him the best. He's going through a life altering change and he just needs to find his way no matter how poorly people feel he's dressing himself. At least he found his cajones and is putting them to use now. I wish him the best. With Kate as an exwife he's going to need all of best wishes and good luck he can get."

I yo-yo with Jon all the time but he consistently rises to the top, even though I've not been happy with some things he's done on the reality show...well, and the rest. Weird, to be thinking about him, when I don't even know him except from what's been filmed, but he seems less contrived than Kate to me, for sure. I don't think the affection we've seen him show, reciprocated by the children, can be faked, so it feels better to maybe think there's still some hope here for the kids with him. (Don't get me started on Kate, though.)

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

Because it's just so completely phony. Even stars don't dress like that when running errands with their kids. Lately, all Kate wears are short skirts or dresses, most of the dresses are low cut to emphasize her boob job, and then the high heels, even when riding a motorcycle. She looks dumb!

There is a time and place for wearing 3" slingback heels, and it's not when you run to the store for some milk and toilet paper. It's too bad she can't just look like a nice normal mom when out with her kids.

Ontario Mom said...

People Magazine Kate says "On a Bad Day I feel like I've failed"
Well Katie Irene, I'm sorry to be the one to tell you - you have failed!
- you have failed to keep the vows you made to God and your husband on your wedding day
- you have failed to protect your children - God's most precious gift to you
- you have failed to be honest and ethical
- you have failed to take ANY responsibility for your role in where you are today
- you have failed honor your mother and your father
- you have failed at many, many relationships in your life
- you have failed to show forgiveness
- you have failed to ask for forgiveness
- you have failed to be humble
- you have failed to be grateful
- you have failed to listen to the needs of your husband and others
- you have failed to show respect to others, most of all your husband
- you have failed to learn from your mistakes
- you have failed to lead by example
- you have failed to take the quiet time needed to assess your role in any of this
- you have failed to recognize the problems and take steps to right the wrongs that have been done and heal the wounds
- Most of all Kate, you have failed to be the best possible you, you can be, for yourself and those that love you

The good news is failure is not the end but rather the beginning. I know, because I have had many failures too. Failure is an opportunity to learn, to grow and to make amends. It is not easy but the reward is like nothing else on this earth.
Kate, I wish you and your family the peace that you desire. I also wish you the clarity to see the path that will take you to that peace.

Do they REALLY get free food? (I hadn't heard about this one). Do you mean Giant pays or TLC pays?

Sara said...

Wow Kate, you really have to annnounce that you won't be speaking publicly anymore? Frankly, I had forgotten about you and could care less. I guess you had to speak out to get some attention since you have been bumped from the public eye in recent days since there are actually important, newsworthy events occuring..I half expected you to go all Joe Jackson on us and have your kids photographed in the front yard in fedoras learning the moonwalk..please go away..you are so completely irrelevant

BeckyQ in PA said...

I agree that the kids look so happy and natural around Jon in the US Weekly pics, vs. wary and stiff with Kate. (One of the girls was cringing in the toy car--Kate must've been yelling). She's always got her mouth open: talking, yelling, eating, etc.

But then I had a TERRIBLE THOUGHT: what if by clicking on pictures of Kate, we're encouraging websites to post MORE pictures of Kate? (Giving her more "hits"). I'm gonna try not to look anymore.

Jennifer D said...

I was thinking about the sites like JustJared.com and the others that post pics of KON. Tonight I noticed that pics of Jon and the kids were ranked #1. When we visit those sites it is logged. We are adding to the problem and keeping the demand for those photos.

We have talked about boycotting and not watching so I think it's time to encourage each other to stop visiting the tabloid sites. We don't really ~need~ to see Kate going to the grocery store in heels and a mini-skirt....right?

If we stop visiting then the demand will be down and photographers won't bother taking pictures that they won't get paid much for. Just a thought.

THANKS for the reminder -- I have also removed TLC from my household.

So far I have managed to get family members to de-list TLC from their 8 homes. I explained it was relying on child labour to generate large network profits by taking advantage of loopholes in Pennsylvania that do not protect children.

In addition, all of us have removed the other Discovery Communications channels as well.

No one likes to see children forced to work to support their families whether it is in a 3rd world country manufacturing goods or in Pennsylvania acting every week in a TV series.

Thanks to the original suggester.

Just saw the pics on Just Jared of Kate coming out of the grocery store - I do believe that was the first time I've ever seen her carry her own purse!

Not a good picture of her on the cover of People - ouch!

Nova

Nova said...

The pics on OK! online of the kids with Kate show:
* None of the kids dressed alike that day, no cute hairstyles for the girls; and the dog's coat needs a good brushing out.
* Kate looking angry or annoyed in almost every shot, and she wasn't smiling in any shot;
* In shots 11 and 12 she's sitting on her throne feeding one of the little girls off of her own plate - you can tell it's Kate's food because it's a salad and isn't on a paper plate!
* Shot 13 shows one of the boys standing near with his hands covering his ears and looking down at the ground. Kate is either looking at him or something beyond him with an annoyed expression, and I think she's sticking out her tongue. Meanwhile, the little girl is taking advantage of Kate's distraction to dip her fingers in the bowl and snag a bit more food.
* a real not one smile on a kids face in the 21 photos shown;
The pics of Jon and the kids were different - lot's of Jon sitting on the lawn alone or with kids sitting or standing with him, or sitting on him. Kids not dressed alike, no cute hairstyles for the girls, but plenty of smiles from all the kids.
* The dogs seem to love him - they're in more shots than the kids are.
* Two shots of Jon giving rides to kids on the ATV, not liking the fit of the helmets - they look too big, could they come off in an accident?
* In shot 16, Jon is sitting on Kate's throne (oohh, she's gonna be mad!).
* Lots of shots of Hannah with Jon or shadowing him, probably more shots of her than the rest of the kids combined - does she always follow him around so much?

ontario mom said it all and to the point. I would like to know by the pics posted on Just Jared if Steve the body guard's wife finally said enough is enough and made him quit. I sure would have if he had been my husband on that train wreck of a job. I also wonder how much input she has into picking the bodyguards.

Annette said...

I think the real reason that TLC released the statement (I don't think for one minute that Jon or Kate did) it is all about damage control. TLC wants to keep their cash cow plus 8, I find it funny that in the news they say Jon and Kate filed for divorce,,,if they would fact check it was Kate who filed for divorce I mean come on the papers are public we have all seen them. Again it is the spin doctors at work. I pray that the show gets cancelled it makes me sick to watch these kids working their childhood away. I can sujest that we go to the books publisher website Zondervan and email your concerns. If we don't start emialing the sponsers they will not get the point. I can't stand the thought of this family getting free food when there is so many families who truely could use the food, more than the millionares Gosselin family. I am not jealous of what they have just sick to my stomach how they used the kids to get the money. Yuck!!!

Regarding Kate at the Giant supermarket:

Again, with the pair of kids! Also, the new body guard, looks like a Marine, don't you think? I bet with the all the tabloid coverage, there's been a changing of the guard.

Yes, she dresses up to go grocery shopping. What a joke. She could easily send someone to shop, but she must be perceived as a normal mom doing normal mom errands with kids in tow. It's all PR. I wish the paps would just stop with the pics now.

Danny said...

Carolyn...I agree if you come from a tormented marriage you do go back to the age where you entered the bad relationship. I hope Jon seeks counseling for himself and the kids. For kids they draw pictures and the counsler can determine whats going on. Kids don't sometimes know how to verbalize their issues or they fear the consiquences. A safe place to let their feelings out is needed. I am so happy to see Jon play with the kids and not for the paps but out of love for his kids. Kate grow up you trash talk Jon and show your left hand (ring) to play a poor me role. Get over it we found out who you are.

delilahboyd said...

So much for our hope that the Gosselins are off the radar: Just saw on our local TV news (Washington DC) that the Gosselins have issued a statement that they will no longer speak to the media.

That, of course, brings them back into the spotlight and guarantees that the media will report every move Kate makes.

Truly heavy sigh.

imdamom said...

"Jon and Kate won't be speaking publicly anymore" I eagerly anticipate the day when the reaction to that statment will be "Jon and Kate who? And who cares?"

Barb said...

I wonder what Kate does when she takes one of the septuplets to Giant grocery store and they see all the magazines at the checkout stand with their parents picture on them. I don't think the younger children can read but they can still see the photos. Has anyone noticed if Kate has taken Cara or Mady to the grocery store?

wasteoftime said...

"Kate does not appear to be a time-efficient person who combines her errands in any week's time; instead, she shops every day she's home."

I absolutely agree. Kate spends more time running back and forth to the grocery store and running 'errands' in one week's time I wholeheartedly believe that she is intentionally doing such because she simply cannot miss an opportunity to be photographed by the 'p-people', who by way IMO she now considers 'her inner circle of friends' . For a women that sooooo many claim to be the queen of organization, time management, and a list maker she definitely wastes alot of time and energy (and gas) running back and forth to the grocery store what appears to be every other day! There are much easier and time efficient ways to manage the grocery needs of a large family.

Oh yeah, the shots of her at the grocery store, totally mugging for the camera... heels, short skirt, full make-up. She just DOESN'T GET IT!!

I'm sure this has been discussed before, but aren't these people concerned about pedophiles?? I have a 1 year old daughter and I am always concerned and wary of people looking at her, etc. I would NEVER, no matter how much I was paid, agree to have her life or even her face on television. I wouldn't want to take a chance of some freak deciding that he wanted her. I am shocked that Jon and Kate don't seem worried about this...everyone in America knows the names of her children, what they look like and where they live. We have seen them in their underwear, diapers, swimsuits, etc. Not only that but books have been published with their pictures and details about each one. Thanks to the internet and its easy access, pedophilia is on the rise...how could these people put their precious children at risk??

___________________________________
I think it is because she can't stand being stuck at home all day. I have a neighbor with 4 kids that mows her lawn like 5 days a week. It only needs to be done once, and her husband could easily do it on the weekend, but she gets on that mower and is in her own world for an hour or two each day. I hate going a day without getting out into the "real world," and with no neighbors to chat with it would be even worse.

I get it, at least that one aspect of Kate's personality. She just wants to go out and interact in the "real world." The kids don't care how long she takes to get dressed or do her makeup, but going out into public validates those efforts (at least in her mind).

BarbMae said...

Thank you to those that went to the OK photos. I am glad that I was not alone in my opinions on the photos. They are very telling. In the car that was Hannah crying and look how happy she was with her Dad just a day before. To me the custody arrangements should be reversed. Jon having them Sunday-Friday and Kate Friday-Sunday. As for the Just Jared photos I have stopped going to that site cause it seems they favor Kate alot and have some sort of deal w/her. Yes, I wonder if the children saw their Mommy's pictures on all the magazines as she checked out or did Queen Kate have them turn all of them around before her entrance. Nice cute new bodyguard, Kate must be very pleased, better looking than Steve. I'm tired of them and will worship the day when we can be Gosselin free .....

No Drama Mama said...

Every time I go to a store that has magazines, I turn around all the ones with Jon and Kate on the cover.....

triplemama said...

Kate heels - I have thought for a while now that Kate's heels aren't just to make her look taller and thinner but to have the children appear smaller (and younger).
The skirts are actually more flattering on her frame than the skin tight pants she wears. She really is a thick woman and when she pairs a tight shirt with tight pants she emphasizes her large frame. She often breaks the fashion rule of only wearing something form-fitting on the top OR the bottom, not both. And it also makes her look skanky when she does that. The flowing skirts make her appear less wide, in my opinion. She's very aware of how she photographs for the p-people, which shows her motivation for such outings with the children in tow - way to protect them, Kate!
I also think that the new boobs add bulk to her frame - she looked thinner before.

SwingsandRoundabouts said...

Ontario Mom,
Great post! Absolutely right on. I sincerely hope someone in a position to advise Kate is reading and taking notes.

amanda said...

Hmmm, not enough about the Gosselins in the magazines or on the net the past few days...so J&K make a PUBLIC statement that they will only be handling their divorce PRIVATELY from now on and will no longer be making public statements. LOL Wouldn't it make more sense to let your actions speak louder than your words by simply discontinuing public statements, no public proclamation of such decision necessary??

Katiedid1806 said...

Oh, Vanessa, I believe she absolutely does "get it". I know she mugs for the "bad P people", so she puts on the nines trying not to be a fashion don't. Too bad she cares little about being a "parenting don't".

And yeah, I know why she wears the 3" platform heels watering her lawn and hitting Giant for the umpteenth time that week, it still annoys me. Okay, so little she does doesn't annoy me.

whatawickedweb said...

"Jon and Kate won't be speaking publicly anymore"


IMO this statement should appropriately read, 'the PUBLIC does not want or care to hear J & K speak publicly anymore'. HOWEVER, KATE has scheduled the first of many 'See Me Now' tours where she will make daily appearances at local stores such as Giant, Target, and Bed Bath and Beyond.

goawayfools said...

These fools own 20+ acres yet insist on getting dressed up and hanging out with the trained seals/kids in the front yard. To quote Kate, "Helloooooooo..." Take the proceeds from ONE show and put up a privacy fence, you know, for the kids

whereiswaldo? said...

It does seem rather suspect that Steve, the body gaurd is suddenly MIA. Over the past several months Steve was/has been an ever present figure by Kate's side, the book signings, daily errands, and oh so ever present during Kate's two week vacation in NC. Steve was also present, abliet hiding behind a car and the Konpound garage during the filming of the OCC episode. I for one, am not taking the absence of Steve in photos as an indication that he is no longer in the (Kate's) 'picture'.

Baltimore Sun critic David Zurawik said....

In a post Monday night, I suggested that viewers stop watching Jon & Kate Plus 8 if they really want to help the Gosselin kids. With the divorce of these two self-absorbed parents, there is no way for viewers to justify tuning in any longer. It's nothing but debasement and voyeurism from here on out.

But with the show going on hiatus until Aug. 3, let me further suggest that we in the mainstream press also step back, slow down, take stock and try to wean ourselves off the narcotic of Jon & Kate page views unlike anything we've seen since Sarah Palin's vice presidential candidacy....

I have given TLC the benefit of the doubt in several pieces I have written the last four months about the show. But no more. The channel has already earned its place in TV infamy for its part in pushing this family past the breaking point this year. To now act like it is taking the high road with a six week hiatus is laughable. You can't fix what TLC helped break by turning off the cameras for a few weeks in the summer.

abbra said...

TLC doesn't have Jon and Kate in production now but they sure are milking past shows for all their worth. I wonder if Kate and Jon get a percentage from past shows that are repeated? Every time I look at the TV Listings TLC is running a Kon marathon or several episodes in a row.

konGOaway said...

Why does Kate go to the UPS store or grocery store every day? It must take her a good while to get ready, she only takes TWO children with her (easy and no hassle), shops and gets her picture all over the internet.

Remember there are SIX children back home that someone else is taking care of, while she gets a break. These aren't chores she is running to do, it's a break for her and she gets her daily ego boost being photographed.

If someone else ran to the post office, she would actually have to interact with all of her children at once!

With two freezers in the basement and the huge subzero in their kitchen, she shouldn't have to grocery shop more than once a week for produce and milk.

She is such a fake! (just like her new @@'s)

konGoaway,

The reason that she goes to the store every day, is to get attention and her picture taken. Kate is fake, and always has been. She knows that the "P" people will be following her every move. It's really sick if you think about it. Hopefully, one day Kate will see that she needs some mental help.

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

I remember when Amy Grant finally decided to get divorced, she waited a certain amount of time before being public about starting to date Vince Gill even though it was rumored that he was the reason for her split. Same for Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood. If Kate/Steve is a reality, they might be apart for now with a slow roll-out of the relationship later on for some type of respectability re-building attempt...I don't necessarily think they are together, but then I really thought that Governor was on the Appalachian Trail!

By the way, count three households (me, Mom, and Sister) who finally stopped watching the show completely this week after watching Kate put down Jon on last week's show. We don't buy the re-branding of Kate as a martyr. Jon might not be perfect, but this choice to beatify her as the victim doesn't work based on her past behavior on camera.

Pauper Princess said...

Some observations on looking at the JustJared and OK! photos:

*Who goes to a grocery store like that? Ugh. That's just skanky. You only dress like that when you want to pick up (wink, wink) someone at the "meat" counter.

*The new bodyguard is kind of cute. Maybe Steve should worry. {snort} :)

*In the shots with Jon, the kids look relaxed and happy. No throne - just sitting in the grass like the kids (and dogs!) are. I really liked the one with Joel (?) laying his head on Daddy's chest. That looked natural to me.

*In the pics with Kate, ain't NOBODY happy. I can just imagine the screetching coming from her. Those dresses she wears around the house make her look dumpy and - dare I say it? - pregnant. It's just that kind of sloppy garment. Relaxed at your own house is fine, but you should still wear stuff that is flattering - a t-shirt and shorts would look better, IMHO.

*Who the h**** are they BOTH always on the phone with?

*Someone PLEASE get those dogs to a groomer, pronto? Better yet, have one come to THEM.

*You know why the dogs like Jon? Because he CARES for them. Dogs are very intuitive that way. Kate's always the one yelling at them being put in the crate. EVER HEAR OF (non-husband) OBEDIENCE TRAINING? Teach your dogs to not both you while you eat or whatever. Sheesh.

You forgot to add that they are completely used to making friends with total strangers, get more attention from outsiders than from their own relatives, and are so isolated that there'd be no one to tell if anything bad happened.

those children would be easy pickings for a sicko.

Oh she gets it alright. This is just one more thing thought up by the PR people, keep her in the spotlight illustrating how she is just a "normal" mother, putting gas in the car, going to the grocery store, carrying her own bags into the house, etc. You see,
trying to win support over to her side by any means, no matter how corrupt is all she is about. Woe is me, Jon is gone and I am all alone trying to take care of all 8 kids...too bad most of us are smarter than that and can figure out what a lying piece of work she really is...

Someone mentioned that Khate spends a lot of time, energy, gas, etc. running to the grocery store every day. Of course we know she runs these "errands" because she wants the p-people to capture the celebrity (gag!) in action. Yet she wants us to believe that she can't understand why these photogs are following her around, after all she's just a typical mom (again, gag!). Well, IMHO she does waste a lot of time running to the grocery store every day, not so effecient for an overly organized supermom! Why doesn't she use Giant's online shopping? You complete your grocery order online, then go the store to pick it up, paid for and bagged. It was save her time, and keep the p-people away...oh wait, just answered my own question ;)
I went to the grocery store today, with my two kids in tow, and got my entire grocery order for the next two weeks. Unfortunately I didn't attract any p-people in my capri pants, "Life is Good" t-shirt, and 0" heel sandal.

Maybe Steve was told to keep a low profile while TLC and Kate's PR people try to re-make her image. It would be pretty hard to garner the pity party if her boyfriend was still in the picture.

Its never FREE said...

Many of Kate's local merchants, once contacted by TLC, will give her free 'perks' in exchange for the free advertising of their business on the air... its much more lucrative for them instead of "paying" for advertising on their own, plus reaches many more people on J&K8's show.
Its a fact. Plus all the Pap's photo's = more exposure for the business. They're not stupid.

ihatefrogs said...

A tiny request to to the p-people.
Would you please take the camera focus off Kate for just one second and show me a photo of ALL her 'mobbing fans'. Obviously, she feels quite comfortable and 'at home' with the paparrazi. I would just like to see what those revolving body gaurds of hers are protecting her from.

Retail Therapy For Sure said...

I think she is shopping so much not only to be photographed, but for Retail Therapy. She loves money and new things. She is probably unhappy, so shopping is good way to escape from the real world as see rows and rows of pretty new things, even if it is just food.

As for bringing the kids, my guess is she is trying to soothe a guilty conscience and continue to convince herself that she is a good mom. AND it doesn't hurt that the P-people will be catching it all either.

I am so sad for this whole situation. Those poor kids are going to need much more than retail therapy... :(

bella and aimee said...

I don't know if I've got my head stuck up my butt or if I'm just not sleazy enough when it comes to the websites I visit...but...I've seen neither head nor hair of Kate, Jon or the 8 today.

It's refreshing. Like a tall, cool drink of water on a hot day. Which is better than stinkin' Gosselin garbage on a hot day...that stuff reeks of false-celebrity and that old standby, exploitation.

How nice for Kate that whatever the heck is up with her lid is going unnoticed. Does a shrew on the front lawn make a noise when it falls?

PS Let's be petty for a bit. Those hats of Kate's are getting on my nerves cause I can't make sense of them. I don't believe she's protecting her face from the damage of the sun's rays (have you looked at her bod? It's like a sun-damaged leather hide drum) but I do believe she may have had some work done and needs to keep her surgeryified face out of the sun, or she's changed her hair and can't reveal that otherwise everyone will know what was filmed for TLC pre-let's-get-the-hell-away-from-each-other (read: divorce) or she's just looking to modify her badger look and it's going to take some work and growing out.

If this has been discussed and solved, I apologise. But I was donning my own very attractive and stylish (and not expensive) sun hat today and I thought I should ring Kate on her pink phone and tell her there are fashionable hat options out there...especially for someone with practically as much money as god...

The shopping Queen said...

I for one DO fault Kate for this endless daily shopping spree. She only does it to be seen, and to get away DAILY from the other kids that are with the Nanny.
She doesn't shop to get things she needs, she shops to SHOP. Why, because she has all the money she wants, and because she loves to spend it. NO one needs all the crap that she is obviously buying on a daily basis. No one is saying not to get out during the day as you say, but Kate is a drama hound.

Teach me to shop said...

The only thing I'd watch with them is when the children are reunited with their grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. THAT would be worth watching.
Plus, that's where Kate can start taking these children, instead of teaching them to SHOP every day.

"But Kate Gosselin is a fighter, so she’s working on another book about her real strengths. That book - How To Slap Your Children In Public And Generally Behave So Shrewishly That Your Husband Looks Elsewhere For Affection The Kate Gosselin Way - will be out soon.

Ya know...it pains me to say this but I really like that outfit that Her Highness is wearing to the grocery store. In fact, I like it so much that I actually own it.

Too bad Her Highness hasn't mastered the appropriate "going to the grocery store" outfit.

Yeah the People guy says they shouldn't be on tv but then he also says she doesn't mistreat them either.
I still believe Kevin and Jody when they said that Jon came to them about six months ago saying she wanted them to sign that contract and he thought she was having an affair with her body guard. Don't believe that bit about her not pulling off her wedding rings because it would devastate the tups.

I get out of the house every day, but it isn't to go shopping. I couldn't afford to go shopping every day, just to get out. I get out when I take my kids to school, or now that it's summer, day camp. I get out when I take my son to his little league games, or my daughter to her soccer games. I get out when I take my son to his guitar lesson, and my daughter to her swim lesson. I get out when I take my kids to the playground or the library. I get out when I meet a friend for lunch or coffee, or when I go visit my mom and sisters. I get out when I go to the gym to workout without a personal physical trainer. There are better ways to get out of the house than to go shopping every day. It has nothing to do with Khate wanting to get out, she's just after the attention.

Well, my goodness sake. 6.30.9...write that date down....the ratings took a nose dive......the cookbook is being shelved... and, if I am correct...there are no new Katie Irene photos today!!!!

Yea and Yahoo.

Thank You Mods, GWoPers and everyone else concerned for the safety, social development, mental health oh and yes, I have to say safety again because it is so important, for eight innocent children being exploited for financial gain to support corporate and parental greed.

We are making a difference. Let us take a deep breath and stay focused on these sweet children.

(All I ask Katie Irene, is you take your anger out on your boyfriend, not your children or your dogs. We are watching and we are not going away any time soon.)

Now if we just could get Victoria to go the Gosselin house to train Kate..."

I had been thinking of the Dog Whisperer, but it's on National Geographic. Victoria would work. :)

At some point (maybe sooner than we think) these two will reconcile. Once the fame and fortune has passed, they'll be desperate for money and what better way than a reunion with them getting married a third time? Or them not even going through with the divorce. It'll be a ratings bonanza.

OMG, Pony, could you see Cesar Millan trying to stop Kate's every bad behavior? It would be nothing but "sssht!" all day long! Maybe he'd simultaneously poke her in the neck, too. (How'd ya like those "love taps," Kate?) I'd pay to see that!

I have to agree with Adrian - I think that they'll get back "together" for a ratings boost - got to keep the gravy train rolling.

It's possible. They've gotten too used to the money and supporting a high-end existence. They had apparently lived a life of deception for the sake of money for a long time. If they can handle that kind of dishonorable stress, seems they could do it again. After all, think of what they've lost...nobody is probably hiring them (her) to be a paid speaker; no proceeds from the new book; assumedly no more plans in place for a talk/lifestyle show; who knows where things stand on clothes designing, etc. Whereas once they pulled people and sponsors in like a magnet, now it's a withdrawing...not wanting to be associated with the much-maligned Jon and Kate. If the show is in jeopardy, and this other income is on hold (or about to drop off or already gone), and unless they've made some really good investments, what exactly would they do for income, even individually, enough to take care of eight kids and the stuff of their life? Might have to find a way to get the reality show back to a (watchable) place where they can firm-up their fanbase again.

On another note, this was the last night I went into justjared; it seems pretty obvious that they've got some deal going because it's The Daily Kate. It's actually getting boring...she's just not that interesting. I've actually considered whether I'm getting a little too voyeuristic, except that it's not like you're looking thru binocs at an unsuspecting person...she totally knows she's being photographed. Still, there's better places to read and surf...ask yourself, "what's my time worth?"

re: just jared photos....

news flash kate: pirate's booty is NOT organic
(but, of course, you knew that)

Not trying to hard lately to keep up the scam, huh?

Something tells me Jon is glad to be going to Micky D's again and eating whateva the heck he wants...hahaha!

(altho, i do personally like some organic - i just don't act like it's ALL i eat!)

kate is such a poser...and a bad one at that.

Yes, they could be in the back yard where they are alone, no paps there.

But, you know what, I don't mind this at all.

It looks natural. They do look like they are all enjoying it.

Of course, it was all planned, but I think it is just fine.

You read my mind Sidney! Well said.
