July 25, Divorce, Tabloids, and other antics

Here is the spot for the websites, tabloids, magazines, and other similar Gosselin news.

Unfortunately, it seems we need at least another week for this. With new episodes starting August 3, we'll re-evaluate as we watch How the Gosselin Word Turns. Thank you to all the readers who commented on the humor of using the word antics. I couldn't really think of a good description last week and honestly had NO idea of how predictive it would be.

One Down Seven to Go

There obviously is no shame in the Gosselin, TLC, or one of the weekly magazine's camp. As shown here, Mady has already been singled out. When will one of these groups pay attention to the children's needs, wants, wishes, and desires? Word on the street is that she had to cry for five minutes just get a bathroom break at the Jonas Bros concert. This is after the infamous drink of water from months back. These are all public episodes. What do the children have to go through to get private attention?

July 18 Divorce, Tabloids, and other antics

Famous Jabs From the Great Wife

Submitted by Rita TV

It seems to be obvious that Jon is a lazy, immature dude who is "excited about the next chapter in his life."
No doubt part of that excitement stems from not having to put up with The Wonder Nag 24/7. Despite Kate's efforts to paint herself as the victim and martyr in the breakdown of this marriage, the record shows Jon has taken quite a beating from his wife over the years. Aside from the regular jabs about his hair and weight, we've seen....

* "Where is my husband? Oh, he's absent, as usual."
* "The weird color hair ties are for home!!"
* "You're breathing too loud."
* "This (condescending clap) is how (condescending clap) we do it!" (have naptime)
* "You're either with me or against me"
* "Jon, stop playing with toys."
* "Jon, stop scratching."
* "Jon, please deal with your child. She's being ugly."
* "Don't grab the cereal like a rabid animal."
* "Don't ask questions, just do as I say."
* "Don't forget your prepositions."
* "Did you wash your hands??"
* "Don't call me your wife!" (Well, this problem is solved, now)
* "Are you just going to sit there with your arms crossed, like a ding-dong?"
* "Our life is not seasons!"
* "Did you hear what I said? Repeat back to me what I said."
* "Stop checking out your physique and help!!"
* "Do you even know your way around a kitchen?"
* "Would you stop interrupting me? Geez, by now you think you'd learn."
*(to the kids) "Don't listen to Daddy. He's mean." "Don't let Daddy ruin your day."
* (to a babysitter) "Ignore what [Jon] said. This is what I want you to do."
* And of course, CouponGate: ""I'm gonna shoot him! You're not buying anything anymore! This is annoying; beyond annoying! Where's the receipt? What is the rule about receipts? You're gonna go back to the store this afternoon!"

It is always puzzling to hear Kate correct Jon's speech, when she has given us such gems as...

* "dustilies" (glitter)
* "p-people" (paparazzi)
* "shribbled"
*"rabbaroo
* ”flufferated” "Big Bird was all flufferated to see us"
*“culturize” “ We like to culturize our kids."

Then of course, there are these simple sentences...

* “Oh that is dreadfully dreadful.”
* “The new house is going to be hugely better for the kids.”“Do not come into this room, on penalty of severeness.”

Is there editing? There has to be some, or it wouldn't be a TV show. But did unfair editing "make" her appear this way ? Kate has repeatedly said that the show is accurate and that what we see is how things are. Also, one has to wonder: If a person acts a certain way when the cameras are on, how do they act when the cameras are off?
Jon, man up and get a job and an apartment closer to your kids. But, dude, enjoy the silence. ______________________________________________________________________While Jon is obviously not taking our advice at this time, we wonder if he has given any thought to the things he might have said that contributed to the present situation. Have you? Readers, can you think of things Jon has said that were disrespectful to Kate or the children, words he made up, sentences that made you say, “What?” Feel free to write them here as you are commenting on this post.

Catching Kate's Lies

I love all the posts... was thinking of starting list type thing with you guys...catching kates lies.

I'll start:lie:.."we tried for ONE more"... (on the old opening credits and in several interviews)

fact: manipulated the docs and therefore got pregnant with 7 (did she even need fertility treatments to begin with? that young? really???)... after telling a friend that she hoped for 'maybe 4 this time' (radaronline)


lie:they had always done home videos, but with 6 new babies, wouldnt have time, so TLC picked up the idea and she only wants to do it to 'capture their childhoods' (on their specials and stated in the begining of their show)

fact: she shopped home videos to networks trying to sell the show idea before the kids were even born. they are a scripted or planned show, the show as it airs is not their reality. its created. (um. obvious. and stated in articles across the web)


lie: they cant escape the incessant p-people (stated several times to several outlets)

fact:1)they make things called shrubs. plant them along the fence line. 2)dont plant the white plastic thrown in the driveway; theres acres and acres of YOUR land behind your house... isnt that part of the reason you... er.. your kids bought that house????3)dont dress like an attention wh*re out and about in town... learn to 'blend in'_______________what have you guys got to add?

I know there are thousands more... begging to be written....
