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....

Kate lies about what her children eat: "The sextuplets have never had fast food".

fact: in the episode where they went skiing, Jon is clearly shown carrying a bunch of McDonald's Happy Meals.

motorcitymama said...

I only cook/buy organic

Fact: she neither cooks, nor is it organic. She may demand that craft services BUYS organic food, but she isn't cooking. Not to mention that organic food doesn't negate the millions of trees that are killed every year around the gosselin table via paper EVERYTHING.

Emily the Great and Terrible said...

I think her organic schpiel is the biggest lie. When I mentioned it on my own blog (which is about raising an organic family, so this is relevant), I received many messages telling me that she does feed her children only organics, and that I am a classless bitch for even bringing it up. But I digress. Seriously, even in the earliest episodes she is talking about organics while handing them Lay's potato chips. They had the kids all drinking out of Olive Garden cups in one epi.

It's not like there are just a few odd occasions. As someone who actually struggles to feed my family of eight an affordable, organic diet, I think I have the right to be offended.

Heather said...

Lie: Even though it looks like its all about me, this show is really for the kids.

Fact:
1) The kids are shown for about 4-5 minutes on the average season 5 episode

I, too, wondered just how much they actually "hate" the attention of the "P" people.

It was the 5th birthday party episode that really made me think. Why in the world would they choose to have the party outdoors, in a public area?

Ok, maybe Kate didn't want "strangers" (classmates, parents, teachers) in her home but why not have the party at "Bounce U", where Leah went for her "special day"? It is full of "bouncy" activities (as requested by the kids, said Kate), it is indoors (no rainy weather worries)and best of, it is PRIVATE! Each party has use of the facilities exclusively. I know this because my children have had parties there. Each party is private; it is not open to the public during party times.

I suppose, though, if they had the party at "Bounce U" or anywhere else indoors, private and secure, those pesky "P" folks would not have been able to just happen to show up, uninvited, and taking pictures which would be splashed across newsstands everywhere, thus insuring that the Gosselin kids would still be very much in the public eye.

Again, it boils down to great marketing on the part of Kate and TLC...and fans still being naive.

lie:everything I do is for my kids.

fact: everything I do is so that I can bring in the money.

lie: I love what I am doing. Jon does not.

Fact: I love doing Steve. Jon does not like when I do Steve.

Lie: But its OUR life

Fact:Its OUR life, and crew people, poeple magazine, drivers, cooks, nannies, house cleaners, p-people, and the needed body gaurds.

pinkdiamond611 said...

"We do not have help". . . She said the numerous times, even while questioned about it by Larry King.

Hmmm, well I guess the kids just stay home all by themselves while you go galavanting all over the country. Plus it has been established that Steve has been providing services since at least the Park City trip.

Emily said...

LIE: "I only wrote my book Multiple Blessings so that my kids would have something to look back on and see that I love them. I don't care if I sell one copy."

FACT: She abandons her children several weeks out of the year to promote her book, even though she apparently doesn't care if it sells...and in the first place, why publish a book if you don't care about the money?? If it is all for the kids, why not make a scrapbook for them? Or even better, why not be honest and admit, "We've gained a lot of notoriety through the show and I thought I'd take advantage of this popularity and release a book."

organizedblogroll said...

She authored "Multiple Blessings".

Beth Carlson wrote Multiple Blessings.

FF Forever said...

As somebody had mentioned that Kate feeds only organic to her kids while handing them Lays Potato Chips...She also claims her kids will NEVER eat fast food but yet in the very next scene on Madys night stand is a McDonalds cup. Its one of the first hour long specials where Kate is preparing all the food that will be eaten while she is recovering. She is making a meatloaf and saying she won't settle on them just eating chicken nuggets and fries.


Also, on the Bye Old House epi she ordered pepperoni and sausage pizza.

pippu said...

When someone doesn't want to participate in the show, we will stop the show.

When we feel like the show is no longer helping others, we will stop the show.

"THE SHOW MUST GO ON!"

(And the Masches on WE said almost the exact same thing--they're not like the Gosselins because they will stop the show when someone doesn't want to participate. Oh yeah, they're SO much different from the Gosselins)

Just Julie said...

...but this year they chose to just have a family birthday with no party....

RIIIGHT.

and

We'll take the cupcakes home and have them for dessert.

The boys forgot all about the cupcakes.

(Gee, I sure hope they are never reminded of their crappy 4th birthday by..oh...I don't know SEEING IT ON TV or DVD !!???)

lie: every friday night is movie night at the gosselin
fact: most friday nights are either Jon or Kate not Jon and Kate and even more frequently it is neither Jon NOR Kate that watch movies with the kids because they are both out galavanting around

lie: I have 8 kids, I do not have time to spend on stain removal
fact: I have to resale these free gymboree clothes and they have to stay brand new looking

Momof2 said...

"We'll NEVER have a Nanny."

Jennifer D said...

I was home alone with the kids. I got them dressed, fed them and played with them.

TRUTH: The kids emerged with fancy braided hair like the NOT-A-NANNY does for them. Kate is filmed making her own lunch.

LIE: "Very swiftly" our marriage fell apart.

LIE: Our marriage problems have been "going on for a long time"

LIE: If the marriage problems have been going on for a long time, why renew vows in Hawaii less than a year ago.

TRUTH: Who knows?

Lie- "I HAVE to lead(while at Disney world) I have eyes in back of my head" Kate tells Jon.

Fact- "Jon won't you please lead? I hate to lead" Kate tells Jon at the airport.

Tee said...

Lie...."I never want to spend another day(?) apart from you in my life."

Fact- Kate does spend more then just a day away from her family and soooo loves it!

Just Julie said...

They're just little love taps.

Jon likes them.

Pamela Jaye said...

it's not a lie but the "mine all mine" comment reminded me of how she's "sad, cause there'll be some times when I'll have to be away from here"

not away from her kids. just away from her mansion.

How about "mommy and daddy are getting remarried and will always be together"

I know that's not the exact wording, alas.

Miss Brown Betti said...

Someone please help me out on this one.....The gum thing...She has a fit about Aunt Jodi giving the tups gum(gumgate) and then we see Jon giving Leah etc....

(Lie) "I would love for Jon to help me out just once."

(Fact) When Jon does help Kate out in the kitchen(Korean dinner)all Kate does is bitch and moan.

MichelleS said...
how about what i just read on people.com..i thought Jon and Kate were not going to do any more public interviews and such about their marriage, so they can just focus on their kids..
i just read that she has been invited by Maria Shriver to some governors conference for women? Its in regards to topics such as loss of loved ones, job or marriage. So much for Kate staying out of the public and focusing on her kids? Maybe im out of line? If so, i apologize

7/08/2009 4:34 PM




Here she goes....being put on a pedastal because she's now going to be a single mom...a marriage lost because of how she behaved.

She.Makes.Me.Sick!

Maria Shriver, what the hell are you thinking?

Allie said...

Lie: Everything I do is for the kids.

Fact: Everything I have is due to the kids.

ForeverHopeful said...

In season one or two Kate says how she does NOT like having all the cameras around. Jon says he doesn't really mind.

Recently Kate says how much she hates the p-people...YET she always makes it easy for them to get their shots.

Jon has now decided he just wants O-U-T. (Can't say I blame him wanting to get away from Kaustic Kate!)

Jon is now signing autographs by his fence.

These two flip-flop so much on what they like/don't like. Can't keep 'em straight!

Don't know whether they are LYING or whether the stress level has just made them CRAZY!!!

season 5? said...

Luas and Leis Episode (season 4)
one of the tup girls thinks the hula dancers are "naked" because their belly buttons are exposed. "That's what we tell them," explains Kate. "If your belly button is showing, you're naked." (paraphrased)
----
Less than nine months later, Kate's belly button is on the cover of several magazines and TLC previews as she wears an orange bikini in front of her children.

ForeverHopeful said...

Kate makes sweeping generalizations, then has to back-pedal.

Kate talks in absolutes..."Never" and "Always" and "worst ever" etc. Why does she feel she has to EVALUATE every moment, every situation? Even if she DOES feel the need to for some weird reason, what makes her actually believe that she always knows what is right and true and best for everyone?

I don't know if Kate knows what a "LIE" is! I think SHE thinks that if she SAYS it, it is TRUTH!

We said...

She saves pine cones as a memory and then when moving into the BIG HOUSE she claims that she doesn't save memory things because she doesn't have any use for them.

Allie said...

Lie: We had to budget the money.

Fact: TLC or sponsors paid for it.

Lie: I'm always ready to go without in order to have the money to meet my kids needs.

Fact: I go without nothing. Have you seen me in the same outfit twice lately?

Lie: I hate to shop

Fact: I shop every freakin' day of my life.

(this is way too easy)

Lie: We do not give gum to four year olds.

Fact: They give gum to the kids on the plane.

Lie: We're in this together.

Fact: We're in this for the money.

Lie: I am a clean freak.

Fact: Kevin says that she never cared much for cleaning growing up. You don't just wake up a clean freak one day. I believe that she made up this neat freak thing as a part of her "character" to sell herself to television.

Lie: Everyone wants my hair.

Fact: Everyone hates your hair.

LIE: I don't drive hither, thither and yon (when explaining why she won't participate in the boys' special days)

I can't have the kids wear stained clothes because I want them to look good......YET....She doesn't run a comb through the girl tups hair on most days and has let them be filmed going to the potty.

What is so sad is she KNEW she was telling a lie to her children when she said that - forget about the public...her own children. I remember the smile on one of the girls face when she said that...and Kate knew things were bad and were not going to get better.

Beeb said...

What about John?

Lie: I don't want to do this show anymore.

Truth: I'll continue to do the show but only when Kate's not around.

Fantasy: I'll (John) fight for sole custody and protect my precious eight from this P-People madness.

K said...

How many times have we heard Kate say, "Its make me cry" or "It made me cry" or It was so cute/sweet that "it almost made me cry"?

I've never seen her cry when making one of those statements!!!!

cankles said...

"We never buy anything without a coupon."

yeaisaidthat said...

Kate: 'I just want to give my kids ALL the things I DIDNT have as a child growing up'.

Truth: I have a delusional sense of entitlement and will go to any length including the exploitation of my children to validate/justify my narcassistic self serving agenda.

tanya g said...

LIE ~ According to Kate, only idiots and people who do not know how to cook only use recipes. She creates her masterpieces only from her own mind and makes everything from scratch.



TRUTH ~ I caught part of the episode today where she took the kids to the chocolate factory. In the beginning she was using STORE BOUGHT CAKE MIX ( following the recipe of course) then later she was filmed using GASP recipes from a cookbook.

cankles said...

Jon Lie: "I work as an IT Analyst."

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

Fact: "I took a six week Microsoft Office course and built a website to beg for freebies."

Fact: This is a situation fabricated for our fictional tv show.

Lie: I came up with this 4th of July flag cake.

Fact: Oh, please...

Lie: They help us because they love us.

Fact: They help you because they feel sorry for your children.

Lie: Jon was fired from his job because his employer did not want to cover us under his insurance policy.

Fact: Jon was fired for stealing company time.

Brooke said...

what about when she was describing how she thought it was odd that cute, cartoon character pinatas get beaten with bats at birthday parties and how violent pinatas are. Next scene, she practically assaults jon trying to wack one of them at her kids' party? wow.

Pitts... said...

I came across this article from the Good Housekeeping article they did a couple years ago for the Thanksgiving issue...

Kate: “But our marriage is going to go through many more years of fine-tuning. Right now it’s taking a beating, because we have a house full of children. People see us arguing, and they say ‘When will Kate and Jon split up?’ Well, never. He’s the only one who’s been by my side through all of this.”


Lie: We will never split up.
Truth: After 10 long years together we decided we can't pretend to like each other no longer.

virginiagirl said...

Maria Shriver invited her before all of this divorce hoopla happened. Nonetheless, I'm not sure why she invited her, divorce or not. Sorry to stray from the subject at hand.

Cara Starr said...

About them shopping the concept of the multiples around for publicity - does anyone have a link to anything talking about this? I can remember in one of the specials or something, she is running a home video camera, and talking to the camera about "i know i don't look very glamorous because this isn't a glamorous job..." and then she "introduces" each child to the camera. I've always thought that was like an audition tape or something, but she later said that TLC approached THEM with the show idea. riiiiiiiiiiight.

Hold on, I'm really confused now. Was he fired from the "IT analyst" job and then quit the job as an insurance agent bc Kate wanted to work on "her" book, etc.?

I've never seen anything about the stolen time thing; if you don't mind filling me in, what's the story there? Thanks!

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

Jon was fired from his job at the cabinet company because he spent all of his time emailing and calling production companies about the upcoming birth of the tups.

Then after the birth the governor actually created a job for him to do. He quit that job because Kate was constantly harping about not being able to do everything by herself and probably because they were making enough with the show that he didn't have to do it any longer. Then he says he worked from home for Beth's husband, but I think it was a lie.

"The kids are getting tired of going to Aunt Jodi's"...

when in reality Kate threw a big fit when TLC wanted to reimburse Kevin and Jodi for their part in the show. I also believe that Kate was jealous of Jodi because she made her look even worse than she already did by being so good to those kids.

How about all those Starbuck's drinks the kids are always carrying around? Methinks that they, too, are not organic!

Tuesday said...

They are mortified and offended that random p-people outside of their property line take pictures of their family. They allowed a random group of men inside their home to film their children in private moments. for years. and it's still going on. wow.

Jon minus Kate- finally! said...

On the episode when they visit the hospital where the tups were born Kate says she spent 10 wks on bedrest. But didn't they say in an interview it was much longer?

Tuesday said...

Emmy, methinks a huge problem with Kate is a caffeine addiction, big huge artificial high, then huge, cranky, child abusing, screaming, nonsensical husband tormenting crash.

Jon Cooks Dinner Episode:

Lie: Kate said that she never follows a recipe and a TRUE cook never follows one.

Fact: Kate was using a recipe to bake her own b-day cake (and Monkey Munch in another episode).

Toys R Us Episode:

Lie: Kate said she's unaware of people around her.

Fact: Kate is VERY aware of people around her hence the fake tans, boob job and teeth brightening.

Lie: Kate told GMA, Larry King, Rachel Ray, etc. that she and Jon will deal with their marriage problems IN PRIVATE. Several days later, People comes out with her interview where she outright blames Jon for everything.

ABOUT MARIA SHRIVER: She has a Twitter Account with a DIRECT MAIL option so I highly suggest that those with Twitter message her about inviting Kate. I plan to do that right now.

Becky Q in PA:

Hi Becky:

David Rothermel, Jon's former boss at the cabinet co, went on the record a couple of months ago to say that Jon was fired because, instead of doing his job, he spent all his time trolling the web for freebies after the tups were born. Google the boss's name and you will find the articles. He was fed up with this lie that the Kon's kept tellling...

PS - I still think Kate is peeling like a snake right now :)...

konspiracytheory said...

anything Kate explains as "a rare treat"

Lie: It's just low blood sugar.

Fact: Your kids are acting out because they are fed up with being your little money making pawns!

konspiracytheory said...

Lie: We wanted to 'give back' to everyone who has helped us by singing Christmas carols and baking cookies for them.

Truth (according to Jodi, and I believe her): The producers told them they needed to do the above for an episode and Kate was ticked.

konspiracytheory said...

Lie: "We took the kids to Kmart to buy Christmas gifts for the sick children at St. Jude's".

Fact: The toys were donated by Kmart as part of a promotion deal.

The lies just keep popping into my head - what a great idea for a topic thread!

OK, I promise, I'm done for the night.

Annies said...

Had a thought--- Kate shoved down our throats many a time she and Jon are born again Christians but if so, do they tithe 10% of their income? If so, I would think their home church would do quite well.

Annies said...

"We never buy anything without a coupon."

Her local paper on Sunday has a coupon section like any other paper. There aren't enough coupons in there to meet their needs. Lies.. She will never admit all of these store and companies she gets coupons given to her that none of us have access to.

Avary said...

The many, many times she did those church speaking engagements, giving the story of being financially strapped and soliciting donations when, in fact, they were doing quite well financially.

Also, trying for "one more" baby when they had shopped around for another fertility specialist, was hospitalized for overstimulated ovaries, and then had sex AGAINST MEDICAL ADVICE to get pregnant with the tups.

Lies and Fabrications said...

Lies = Kate told Meredith Viara on "The Today Show" that she tends not to believe the "rumors" in the tabloids about Jon seeing Deanna.

Truth = Kate knew it was true and she was lying to Meredith.

I believed Kevin and Jodi when they said Kate created a contract that allowed Jon to see other women as long as he continued the show.

Avary said...

She has often stated that she had little or no help those first couple years after the tups were born, but we have found out she has always had LOTS of help.

She told Dr. Phil she didn't leave the house for two years after the tups were born and we have heard stories from many of the workers that wasn't true. There was also the trip to get the tummy tuck.

There is a history of deception, lying by omission, and giving the appearance of being something they are not.

This would include the whole Christian thing as well. She appears to only bring it up when it will benefit her financially. Yet, they apparently are not very religious in their everyday life.

vocamesmom said...

According to Kon: Children/Gosselin family bought gifts to give to sick kids in the hospital.

Truth: Thank you K-Mart and TLC! You brightened the day for many sick children.

so irritated said...

Kate's lies? oooohh, where do I start!

September 2008 at a church speaking engagement. "We don't know how we'll send 8 kids to college." Kate said as the "love offering" plate was being passed. Ummmm... maybe you could use some of the estimated $1 to $2 million you got from signing the contract for season four several months earlier. Not only did she lie, she lied in a CHURCH and had the balls to make this statement 6 weeks before closing on a $1.1 million 23 acre estate.

May 2005 "I will shout from the highest mountain that these are my children and I love them and I need help." Kate, overly dramatizing her need to keep the PA Medicaid paid nurse when the one year was up. There was no longer a medical need for the nurse, she simply could not tolerate volunteers and she wanted her free babysitting to continue. The lie? She claimed they could not afford to pay the nurse but according to Julie, they had received a large inheritance from Jon's dentist Dad who had died a few months earlier.

Kate telling Jon their marriage was over almost a year ago but somehow getting him to go along with pretending they were still together. BTW guys, you are TERRIBLE actors. Kate knew there was no way she could do the Multiple Ble$$ing$ and 8 Little Moneymakers book tours with she & Jon separated, plus she was hoping that companies would be clamoring for endorsement deals with her. IMHO, she wanted to try to cut as many solo deals as she could before the split but she needed to keep up the super mom/wife image to do it.

Jon- "I did not cheat on Kate." OK, while we don't actually have any proof you cheated on Kate, we're all adults here and we're thinking Babe didn't fly across the country to Utah so you could sleep on the couch.

Last but not least, here's Kate actually being somewhat truthful about the accusations she and Mr. Gray are having an affair. She said "already, the accusations they are making about me are disgusting, unthinkable, unfathomable and horrifying." I mentioned this once before here, but it bears repeating- no where does she say UNTRUE or FALSE. I suspect Jon might have the goods on her, but if he spills the beans then the show & money immediately go away. Also, if these stories were untrue, Kate would have some major lawsuits against the rags.

Anonymomma said...

Lie: Jon's mom lives too far away to be a part of our lives.

Truth: Not when it meant Jon got to sneak out with Babe for a week.

Lie: I'm not a morning person.

Truth: As long as I get to focus on me and only me (i.e. treadmills and strabucks and bubble baths) I get up at the crack of friggin dawn.

Lie: Steve is my body guard.

Truth: Oh, Stevie boy be's guardin' my body alright!

Lie: We use time out to discipline our kids.

Truth: We discipline our kids with the big red wooden kitchen spoon.

Lie: The GS Puppies are so cute, I want to hold them first!

Truth: I'd give them away to the first available sheeple if Jon wouldn't notice they were gone.

Lie: We knew going into this, we might end up with maybe triplets.

Truth: Kate's sister let the cat outta the bag when she told people about Kate's obsession with the McCaughey's including carrying their book around for months at a time.

Lie: We were so shocked to discover six babies.

Truth: (directly quoted from Charlene Kreider, Kate's mother, immediately after the birth) "Kate always wanted a lot of kids. She always wanted twins. She got her twins and went beyond that".

Lie: We miss Jon's dad so much.

Truth: We miss Jon's dad's money so much!

Laura said...

Lie: Jon was fired because his employer didn't want to provide health benefits for all 8 children.

Fact: The employer fired Jon for not doing his job. Jon was looking for business opportunities for the sextuplets - while on the job.

Lie: On Rachel Ray's show, Kate proclaimed that she was a craft expert.

Fact: She has stated numerous times on the show that she's not a crafty person.

Lie: Going to churches and requesting love offerings and charging $20 for autographed photos.

Fact: The Gosselins make $50,000 to $75,000 per episode. They have filmed 100+ episodes...you do the math.

Lie: Our marriage fell apart swiftly.

Fact: The Krieders confirmed that Kate presented Jon with a "marriage contract" subsequently ending the marriage.

Lie: Interview in People Magazine stating that Jon wanted the divorce.

Fact: Again, Kate gave a "marriage contract" to Jon.

HadleyMSt.J said...

I remember Jon and Kate saying something about how they realized not too long after the tups were born that they could take care of the kids themselves and kicked all of the "helpers" out.

EXCEPT for the nurse! Kate even begged the Welfare department to keep paying for the nurse for another year because they couldn't possibly function without the nurse.

Hmmm.

nohate4kate said...

In regards to organic food - From what I remember she says they eat as much organic food as possible. I don't think she's ever used the "we will never eat anything that isn't organic" line. Many normal exceptions to an organic diet - hot dogs at the baseball game, Mady's special dinner at red robbin, pizza when moving etc...

I am in NO way defending Kate, just wanted to clarify something. I, myself, am on fertility drugs after not being able to conceive after having my first child. And I am only the age of 26. Age plays no factor in the need for fertility drugs. The other lies...completely agree with!!

Lie: Kate says to the camera that she has no idea what that bus was doing in her driveway on her birthday, yet her hair and makeup are already done and she's covering up her sexy tank top and designer jeans with a bath robe.

Fact: One little girl tells the other kids: "If we say, 'Mommy, there's a bus in the driveway,' she'll give us a piece of candy."

Truth: Kate would've called the police if a random bus got through her gate and parked outside her door without her permission, right?

My favorite part: Kate pretends to bake her own birthday cake FROM SCRATCH... Didn't she say earlier that she was the cook and Jodi was THE BAKER? Didn't she say, "I don't bake!"???

Oh, yeah. I forgot: Since when are Keebler crackers, Cheerios, & Wonder Bread organic?

Kate: "My kids are the reason I have always done everything. My kids are the reason I laid on bed rest for 30 entire weeks."

Unless she laid on her back from the moment of conception.... Do the math!!! Also, didn't she haul her ass out of bed to go and yell at Jon that the lunch delivery was late from her father-in-law?

"My kids are the reason that I wrote the books and it's always about them."

She didn't write the books. Beth wrote the first book and the second was photos and Bible quotes.

"And, I know that it looks it's all about me all the time and whatever, but what you don't see is down deep inside it's a desperate desire to provide for my kids." OK, I may give her half points for this one....

Pilgrim Soul said...

The new house. At least the way it's portrayed in the show. No , dear viewers, we don't live in a McMansion paid for by our children, wee're just regular Joe's living in a normal family house (not a film set, mind you!).

tynicksam1 said...

Excellent post! How about the Family Mission Statement? Each child's special day? The chore list? The ultimate joke-the Vows renewal? We have filmed proof of the lies and deception that these children will have to deal with all their lives!Thank goodness the viewers are vocal and enlightened to all the hypocrisy that these parents continue to try to perpetrate.It's blogs like this one that are well-run and legitimate that will keep these issues in focus. As many, many people have stated, we feel for these children and despise their parents' actions.I see the progress and actions that have created change already.Let's keep up the good work for the Gosselins children's sakes!!

Oh, The Momma said...

"When someone doesn't want to participate in the show, we will stop the show."

Jon says "Maybe we'll be back and maybe we won't" Sounds to me like someone doesn't want to participate anymore! The next line is Kate saying "There's the conflict"


"I'm here every minute that working doesn't require me to be away, so, I can't speak for anyone but myself"

Unless she meant in 'spirit' she's there - I think it can be easily proven that she wasn't around due to 'other reasons' than 'working'.

(talking about the hands on museum) "I've had a couple of FRIENDS tell me they've taken their kids there...."

What friends? If she has any - why has no one come to her defense? Oh, wait, maybe she meant "I've had a couple of TLC people/People on our Staff tell me....."

Go watch any old episode and you can probably find a bunch of lies that have now come to light. I just did the final episode from last season!

Also, on 'Going Green" -- Um, going green would've meant that Kate came back from the auto dealership with a Toyota PRIUS and NOT a Toyota LAND CRUISER (neither of which holds all of them - the land cruiser only has seats for 8 - so even with kate and the kids - not enough room.)

AZ Mom said...

"I'll rest when I'm dead."

K8 takes every opportunity to go to a spa or leave on a "book tour" traveling first class all the way.

Not a fan of either said...

"I get up at 5:30 every morning and go to the basement to exercise." I believe it was the same interview that she later said she taught the kids not to come to her room until the sun was up over the curtain. The double lie in this is that she is rarely even home to begin with.

I also noted the lie where she told Dr. Phil that she did not leave the house for 2 years. The following week on Oprah she told an expecting mother of multiples that she went back to nursing when the tups were one. Clearly she can't keep up with her lies.

I believe there is a lie on every show and we would have to watch them all over again which would make me physically ill.

Personally, I've always had a problem believing she was/is a nurse. I know she has a certificate, but calling her a nurse is surely a stretch.

sueshe said...

"I laid in bed for 30 weeks...."

Right, totally impossible, total fabrication. Totally Kate!!!!

Sue said...

I just happened upon this site a couple weeks ago.
Something that just makes me nuts is...
On the "we're separating" show, Kate says she is hard on Jon but not to blame, take responsiblity for his own actions, etc. BUT, on the "embarrassing moments" epi. everything, and I mean everything is Jon's fault. She does not take responsibility for any of her own actions.

I often wonder if that was Jon's turning point... seeing that show and how she acted (blamed)certainly was mine.

really hates kate said...

Lie: We did not invite this kind of attention into our home
Truth: They invited the Reading Eagle newspaper to cover their pregnancy, print the names of the tups before they were born and print their requests for donations.
Lie: TLC contacted us to do this show
Truth:Kate made videos of the tups from birth and sent these to all the tv and cable stations.
Lie: Jon is my best friend
Truth: Jon has been sleeping in the basement, above the garage, with 23 year olds and I couldn't give a rat's ass
Lie: The kids were so excited about their crooked houses
Truth: The kids had never heard of or seen crooked houses until TLC made it a show event
The kids love Desperaux
Disney sponsored this episode of me reading Desperaux to the kids
Even when we couldn't afford it we always used the (insert sponsor's name here) products
If my mother would have given me a pedicure I would have sat for 4 hours
Truth: My parents are far too religious to encourage vanity, primping and pedicures.
I don't eat that stuff
I could live on chocolate

jonandkatewho? said...

Yeah that last one about what was really said about the paps really gets me. I mean, how dumb do the people at TLC and Kate think we are? There was basically no time lapse between the boy tup saying what he said to Kate misquoting him in such a way as to put a different spin on things.

I guess she just can't help it. She opens her mouth and out come tumbling lies, nothing but lies.

CherryCheeseKATE said...

Kate Gosselin: (about how long "Jon and Kate Plus 8" will last) "We re-evaluate with our kids at the beginning of each year and pray about it. When we decide that it's no longer safe or happy or fun, we'll be done."

blamingoftheshrew said...

Kate said that she is a "doer" in the episode with the motorcycles--article is below.

"Are we gonna do this or are we gonna talk about it?" she asked the group of men. "I don't like to talk," she then said, explaining that she is a "doer."

She is just the exact opposite as she has always been found observing on the sidelines, many times on the plastic chair, over and over again ad nauseum. She evidently loves to hear herself TALK!
She evidently CANNOT: swim, ride a bike, ice skate, roller skate, ski, play her violin or DO anything that Jon has always done to enjoy and with the kids.

Peachy Keen said...

It's not really so much a lie as it was something that just irked me.

When she told Mady not to talk and chew her food at the same time, and then promptly did exactly that.

And, again, not so much a "lie" but her inability to apologize for anything. Ever. It's always "well if you didn't do this or say that, then I wouldn't have...."

No accountability.

*****

It wasn't the "age" she was...it was the very short amount of time they tried to conceive naturally. They only tried a few months before she convinced a doctor to start stimulation of her ovaries. A doctor would normally say "try for a year and then we will take it further". Thus we can sumise she lied to the doctor about how long they had been trying to conceive.

Waste of time or not, from that story I would be much more concerned about Jon hanging out with 22 year old party girl. It will be interesting to see if they really do take a romantic trip to Paris.

Jon is lucky so many people hate Kate more than him. His bad behavior is overlooked a lot.

Jocelyne said...

It might be easier to write about what Kate DIDN'T lie about..

PaMa said...

"I laid in bed for 30 weeks...."


I'm certainly not defending Kate, but I'm thinking her "30 weeks of bed rest for her children" was intended to mean a combination of time she spend in bed for both pregnancies.

She stated that the Oraganic Half Cow that they purchased from Natural Acres is a Sacrifice that they make for the kids to feed them the best food.

Fact: They did not sacrifice any money, this half cow was given to them along with all of the other excursions and outings.

konspiracytheory said...

Lies:

Kate sitting on the hotel bed with all the kids "reading" The Tale of Despereaux to them ("giving back" to St. Jude's epi tied in with a Tale of Despereaux movie promo - talk about tacky).

Kate's recent People mag photo op at home "reading" to the tups.

Truth:

In all 100 episodes, I think I've seen only one instance in which a child (Cara) was looking at a book. There have never been any childrens' books to be seen in either of the houses, and let's face it - Kon are far too absorbed in their own little world to hang up the cell phones and read to their 8 little moneymakers.

Vanessa said...

Not so much of a lie, but totally not something they actually do- Kate's "Brown Bag" campaign. She was on the road for weeks, speaking to the little people about how and why you should pack a lunch instead of buying one. It's is sooo THEM after all! Anyways, I'm sure since there's always sooo much leftover from craft services they have lots to brown bag, AND if it's free, all the better.

chloee said...

What the one poster said about the books she wrote that she has said numerous times that she wrote the books for her children to see when they get older and she doest care if 1 copy sells...Then why in the hell is she always gone from her children's lives trying to sell and promote book that is the biggest lie of them all and when she had surgery and told the kids and show she will never leave like that again and hated being away from kids...well now she is never home with her children ever...how soon she forgot those words.

Here's one no one's mentioned yet:

"Our kids don't watch TV", which eventually changed to the kids only watched their own show and LPBW. Total lie. Not only were the kids familiar with Sesame Street, Nick Jr. and Disney fare, they had a TV in their bedroom! Yes, Kate, videotapes count as TV!

Along with her, "We only eat organic" statement, she also said her kids NEVER ate fast food. She even went so far as to say that her kids once tried McNuggets and spat them out in disgust. Um, okay, I almost believe that.....not.

lindahoyt said...

Dianam---Why does everyone think that Jon and Kate did not try for a year, before they had kids?

Kate lived with her former fiance for a year. She and Jon lived together for 2 years. I think she was being honest about fertility problems. I certainly think that she would have been pregnant before, if she hadn't had problems.

I think the "deception" that Jon and Kate tried to perpetuate, was that they didn't live together before marriage; and that they didn't have sex outside of marriage. I am sure they did not want their kids to think otherwise. Now it seems trivial, since they have thrown any values to the wind.

AeroSpice said...

I'm sooooo glad this thread was posted! I've been wanting a thread like this for a long time. Would be great if we could youtube all the blatant lies into one clip and see how they try to talk their way out of or explain it.

1. Kate telling Jon at the doctor's office with the tups when one of the girls poked Aaden:
~we don't hit! keep our hands to ourselves!~

Embarrassing moments episode: Numerous clips of Kate slapping Jon. Love tap, my foot!

2. She won't walk barefoot in hotel rooms but yet she is filmed barefoot on a disgusting gas station parking lot.

3. Organic Mother's Day at a restaraunt that doesn't serve organic. Not to mention the menu Cara was reading from looked like a single piece of paper. Wimpy menu for such a fancy restaraunt.

4. Shady fertility treatments.

5. Her parents don't know how to help them. No, more like...her parents don't obtain MATCHING items for them, therefore returning them and asking for money.

6. oh yeah, their marriage for the last couple of years..total sham!

pinkdiamond611 said...

The list can go on an on. But I think that the worst lie was the lie to their children that "Mommy and Daddy would be together always". That is unforgiveable. This illustrates the moral character of both of these Kons.

Kittycat said...

In at least two episodes that I can remember 'Hannie' was taken to the doctor and had 'full blown' ear infections....We have all had little kids with ear infections...either they have them or they don't.

emmasmommy said...

Does anyone find it odd that Kate NEVER (on film at least) took Jodi for a day at the spa.
I mean she is family and did a lot for her children. Yet she would go with Beth. Beth who came into the picture after the kids were born and is wealthy so she can afford her own spa days.

LIE!
I don't care about fashion or what is the latest styles. It is so beyond me. LOL! Look at her now. She is sooo

I agree that the worst and probably most disturbing lie was the 'we will always be together forever'. Not only did J & K know at the time of the vow renewal that their marriage was in trouble but their priority at the time was NOT that of preserving the marriage with the hope of maintaining their promise to their children BUT their efforts misguided and delusional as their loyalty was to the 'viewers' and tv ratings!!!

ICExploitation said...

LIE: "Boys in boys' room, girls in girls' room - when can you be in a boy's room? When you are married."

TRUTH:
I think the "deception" that Jon and Kate tried to perpetuate, was that they didn't live together before marriage; and that they didn't have sex outside of marriage. I am sure they did not want their kids to think otherwise. Now it seems trivial, since they have thrown any values to the wind.

Jonstheherohere said...

I've suspected, but thought it was too preposterous, that the whole thing was planned fom the beginning as a moneymaker: have a ton of kids at once, a rarity, but interesting to the public.

According to her, Jon was happy with the status quo but she prevailed, and darned if they didn't get six more instead of "one." Just lucky?

Now we have Octomom doing the same thing, only more kids. She's already gone from her mother's house which was behind on mtg. payments, to a bigger house, and is talking about a "deal" i.e. show or book.

Both families are or will wind up rich. Two amazing coincidences, or what?

goawayJandK said...

Not so much of a lie, but totally not something they actually do- Kate's "Brown Bag" campaign. She was on the road for weeks, speaking to the little people about how and why you should pack a lunch instead of buying one.

Actually, the most ridiculous parts of that campaign were the "recipes" that K8 was gracious enough to share with everyone.

Here is the original article - the comments are priceless:

www.stltoday.com/.../school-lunches-advice-from-an-expert-kate-gosselin-mother-of-8


I'm sure these "original recipes" would have been featured in her crookbook.

goawayJandK said...

I'm surprised that nobody has commented on the biggest lie of the Gosselin scam : Christianity.

KON have scammed churches and honest people all over the country by crying poor and stating their belief that "God will provide".

We saw a lame attempt at praying before a meal in the OBX epi, in another epi Cara and Mady were crying that their good "church" shoes were too small (gee K8, how long had it been since you attended?), K8 has declared that they never film on Sunday, blah, blah, blah.

This thread could go on and on and on - there is an abundance of material!

Here's one from today's RadarOnline:

Lie: Jon Gosselin spread the 'rumor' about Kate and her bodyguard in order to get out of the marriage.

Truth: Kate got caught with the bodyguard and Jon went public with it, which prompted her to not only file for the divorce, but smear him via Radar Online in retaliation.


A poster here (sorry I forget which one) said, not too long ago, that they predicted Kate would do this. They also pegged RO and Just Jared as being in Kate's pocket. Good call.

My hunch is that Kate didn't want to do ANYTHING that would make her look inferior to Jon. I mean, how could she criticize him if he was doing it better? No fun for her, so she wouldn't do it. He looked pretty comfortable on his "blades".

Not so much of a lie, but totally not something they actually do- Kate's "Brown Bag" campaign. She was on the road for weeks, speaking to the little people about how and why you should pack a lunch instead of buying one.

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

Actually, the most ridiculous parts of that campaign were the "recipes" that K8 was gracious enough to share with everyone.

Has anyone ever actually seen the tups get a sandwich? It's no wonder they play with their food and need bibs -- all I've ever seen on their lunch plates is random hunks of food. A plain old PB&J would be a lot neater.
I could be wrong -- not a serious watcher.

They hae shown them eating grilled cheese sandwiches. It was the day Kate made soup.

I'm surprised that nobody has commented on the biggest lie of the Gosselin scam : Christianity




You're right, this is the worst one of all. After the tups were born (I live in Central PA) Jon and then Jon and Kate would give press conferences outside Hershey Med. Jon would just spew this constant stream of "we are so blessed, we give all the glory to Him, with His blessing our babies are here and healthy, with God's grace we will get through raising 8 children, God will provide, we let go and let God, we need a 15 passenger van and with God's bounty He will find a way to get one to us... and on & on & on. It was SO obvious that Jon was not accustomed to speaking that way. I half expected him to break out into song "Our God... is an awesome God He reigns!" My BS meter went off the charts, thus beginning my dislike/fascination with these two grifters who were working their scam in my own back yard.

And work it they did. They knew (especially Kate) that the more they pushed their religion, the wider people open their pockets. It gave them the book deal with the Christian publisher and the many $25,000 + love offerings church chats. Now they seem to have no use for the church. Do they even go anymore?

lie: i am an indoor girl.

truth: i just love anything to do outdoors that is FREE (hawaii trips, NC trips to the beach, riding her new scooter).....

lie: i can't risk my health; i have to be healthy to take care of the kids.

truth: i love tanning (uh....skin cancer???). i also love elective surgery (what, that small % that die in surgery? nah, not me!)

What a great post. You were right on the money with your BS meter.

I doubt they do, but certainly don't know what's in their heart.
I can only, like you, see with their actions.

By the way they conduct themselves, I certainly do not see Christian like behavior.
Doubt Church is high on their priority list anymore.

Its still over for them said...

'So irritated'... you are right on the money with the Christianity lie. Sinful, how at the beginning they went on and on and on about being blessed, and that everything she prayed for wound up on the front doorstep. They have not mentioned the name of God in a year or more. Where did God go all of a sudden? Nowhere. It just did not suit their new highstyle life and they didn't need him anymore. They were convinced that it was all because of THEM. Big, Big mistake.

rosie said...

Another lie... "We don't film on Sundays because we all go to church".
I don't think they've seen the inside of a church in over a year.
Not Kate, anyway.

bedonenow said...

LIE: "I hate shopping for clothes and dont care how I dress. I hate to wear bright colors"
TRUTH:"I have a bikini-of-the-day, every pair of $200 hooker shoes you can think of, and I LOVE bright orange as long as it's on my skin."

LIE: "I wont drive hither and yon..."
TRUTH: Not a day goes by that she doesnt make sure she is seen leaving the house with 2 purses in one hand and 2 envelopes in the other. Just what does she have to mail every single day that she has to drive an envelope somewhere?

LIE: Garage Sale epi -"We arent doing this to promote our show."
TRUTH: Kate, you dont go to the bathroom without trying to figure a way to use it to promote yourself.

BlahBlahbLAH said...

I just always remember above all the parking lot outside the ToysRUs, where she has the GALL (or delusional stupidity) to ASK Jon "are you mad at me? Why are you mad?" I am like still picking up my jaw from that one. The fact she did NOT KNOW , or even suspect, "why" speaks volumes as to her clueless narcissism or whatever it is wrong w/her.
Oh, the lie topic? Most all of what spews out of her mouth is lies or twisted whatever. That's why I would NEVER read an article by People about KHate, ; it would just be more Blah,Blah,Blah,Blah,Blah Blah, etc and on from there.

JonCheckedOut said...

And, again, not so much a "lie" but her inability to apologize for anything. Ever. It's always "well if you didn't do this or say that, then I wouldn't have...."

No accountability.

7/09/2009 8:11 AM
********************
This is what my DH routinely does and it's maddening. I have been calling him on it though more and more lately, and I bet Jon never called KHate out on it that is why she continued(ues) to this day. He just got sick of ALL of it, and checked out.

Cathryn said...

"3. Organic Mother's Day at a restaraunt that doesn't serve organic. Not to mention the menu Cara was reading from looked like a single piece of paper. Wimpy menu for such a fancy restaraunt."

Have you ever been to restaurant like that? They take private reservations and usually serve different items each day, usually with two or three entree options. They print a different menu each day. Come on, people, there are plenty of REAL LIES we can bitch about.

For instance: "I clean the floor on my hands and knees two or three times a day." (said to interviewee applying for a "helper" job."

Truth: I don't think so, Kate.

Anonymomma said...

How about this one?

"Mady is just like Jon"

Riiiight K8. She didn't learn ANYTHING by watching you throw temper tantrums for nine years. She must get her aggressiveness from her dad lol.

Anonymomma said...

And I can't believe no one posted this one yet:

Lie: When we got to Park City Utah, I was just oh so sick and could not get off the couch to help care for or participate with my kids.

Truth: Except to go to the spa.

goawayJandK said...

So irritated,

I did read that their former Church politely asked them to find another place of worship. I haven't been able to find the article again, but if/when I do, I will post the link.

goawayJandK said...

They hae shown them eating grilled cheese sandwiches. It was the day Kate made soup.

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

One lunch for another bogus episode. K8 makes 2 quarts of soup for a family of 10 to last all winter ? Riiiiiiiiiiiiight.

I watched every episode up until the St Jude epi and have not watched since. Out of those episodes, these are the hot, homemade meals I have seen the kids eat:

1- said soup/grilled cheese
2- Korean dinner that Jon cooked
3- hot chicken sandwich thingy when the twins were playing "mommy" for a day
4- pancakes for breakfast on a couple episodes

I have never seen K8 make a real meal like meatloaf and mashed potatoes, fish and veggies, grilled chicken , pasta, chili, etc.

I'm sure these "original recipes" would have been featured in her crookbook.

GWoPs: Sorry for any problems my posts had on your displays (they ended up looking funny). I was testing out a different editor.

I appreciate the mods letting me know as everything looked all right on my end. :-( I've gone back to blogger to eliminate the problem.

Just wanted to let you know and to thank the mods again for the fantastic job they are doing (including taking care of me!)

Much appreciated

Anonymomma said...
Here's one from today's RadarOnline:

Lie: Jon Gosselin spread the 'rumor' about Kate and her bodyguard in order to get out of the marriage.
=====

Not to nitpick but didn't Jodi and Kevin say that Jon told them the marriage was over and they were the ones that said he thought there was an affair with the bodyguard so he hired an investigator. I think it was in the first video where they said the show should be stopped.

The rest of your comments are bang on Anonymama!

here is the source:

As everyone suspected the recipes that the article states Kate created for Grain Foods Foundation include a sandwich of PB and apple slices, sandwich of ham, cheese and apple slices, cream cheese on a roll with smoked turkey and finally, white wrap with hummus red pepper and cucumber. Note the apple slices on the first two are sliced into the sandwich in lieu of jam or jelly.

Their Church's website has a Media statement to the contrary that they did not ask them to leave. The Gosselins do not however attend any church including this one at the moment. Guess I would be ashamed to enter any church with the behavior they exhibit. The kids(tups) do attend the private school which is in the same building.

k8stinks. said...

Calgary7:
Thanks for reposting the link. Those comments are cracking me up!!!...and they are from over a year ago! It's sad that Kate thinks she is a genius for creating a sandwich for a packed lunch.

Harriet said...

The tups no longer attend pre-school there since they finished at the end of the school year.

In my opinion! said...

Lie: Kate continues to get invited to speak at various women's shows because regardless of the few disgruntled viewers, she still has amazing popularity. Many women want to be her and love her style (hair included). She just loves her fans.

Truth: Kate is not invited to speak anywhere. TLC pays her way and uses the speaking opportunities as attempts to regain a fan base. ...much the same way an actor goes out and about making loads of pubilicity for a movie that is "tanking". Anyone with an ounce of common sense would want to stay as far away from her as they could.

(In my Opinion)

kate is a cocky bitch said...

Ms Peach, so funny, I love "Bitch in the Kitch" !!

ThePaginator said...

Lie: They really love us.

Truth: No Kate, they love your kids and TOLERATE you.

Mom of One said...

Lie: The Chopper guys said I was a "cool" Mom.

Truth: The Chopper guys thought you two were the biggest posers with your lame tats, heels with skin tight jeans, Jon's grunge look and do rag. LOL

Too bad they didn't film that little gem of a quote.

samantha said...

i used to love watching the show becoz of the kids... now i think the biggest lie is ... actually the whole show... reality show... so NOT true...
i just really feel bad for the kids

kat said...

Charlotte said...
I am in NO way defending Kate, just wanted to clarify something. I, myself, am on fertility drugs after not being able to conceive after having my first child. And I am only the age of 26. Age plays no factor in the need for fertility drugs. The other lies...completely agree with!!

*****

It wasn't the "age" she was...it was the very short amount of time they tried to conceive naturally. They only tried a few months before she convinced a doctor to start stimulation of her ovaries. A doctor would normally say "try for a year and then we will take it further". Thus we can sumise she lied to the doctor about how long they had been trying to conceive.


************************
Yes, it is probably normal for a doctor to say try for a year before looking into fertility options. But not always.

I have PCOS and have been told that when it comes time that I decide to start having kids that I shouldn't wait a year before looking into options - they already know I'm going to need help.

It is possible that the reason the doctors went ahead with fertility treatments is that they already knew that she had an underlying problem. (Assuming of course that she actually does have PCOS like she has claimed and that's not just yet another lie.)

Vanessa said...

WOW! Just logged on again this morning to find almost 200 examples of Khate's lies!! Incredible!

"I as a child was forced to practice the violin while my brothers and sisters all got to play after school" SURE, only poor Miss Katie, out of all her siblings was forced to practice.
I'm sure in her delusional memory, that's how she recalls it.

She also lied by "omission" to Jodi that TLC wanted to pay her.

The "one year" update episode, going on and on about organic and then there's a shot of her grocery cart with coca-cola in it.

Didn't let Jon light the fireworks in SC (you will not break the law)
but then ALLOWS it in the front driveway. (more dangerous during the day, you can't really see where they are going)

They are both just total frauds, through and through. AND WHY LIE??
Why continue to lie? Any public figure/celebrity (no denying that's what she is) when caught in a scandal/lie, if they just own up to it, the public is much more sympathetic. But I guess if she can't even ask for forgiveness from her own husband/family, no way is she going to ask the public for forgiveness.

Swissmiss said...

I read on a different blog that Kate's bodyguard Mr. Gray has returned to his wife. I have no idea if that is true or not.

Maria Shriver's group invited Kate because one or more of her children watched the show and suggested about 5 months ago that Kate be invited to speak.

kelly s said...

Lie: (in 2nd to last epi of this season) I have always said this house is for the kids, its thier house

Fact: (Moving in epi) Take your shoes off in "MY" house. everything is always "MY" house

Tell it like it is said...

I counted no less then six times on shows that Kate said "They love us, and we love them." Who talks like that. Who is she trying to convince, the audience? No, no one LOVES you Kate, they tolerate you, and probably if the truth was told on the show, they HATE you!
I think that's what happened to that poor Jen Stocks and Scott.

Annies said...

Harriet said...

That's odd as a recent show Jon said they were attending full time three days a week this Fall and the hours, schedule he mentioned matches the same as the church school. One of the articles in the rags said Kate demanded a whole list of her "rules" for the kids at the school this year.

nobodylikesliars said...

TLC is reshowing the epi of Cara and Mady visiting the orthodontist with Jon and Kate making fun of Mady in front of Hannah no less. Kate was hoping braces helped her teeth. (I noticed from another episode where she got the tummy tuck that she has had something else done to her teeth since then ....veneers? does anyone know? .... she dare make fun of Mady!) Isn't that just like Kate to put down Mady when she lies about her own and has gotten veneers?

Also here is a link from a sorta fan with pictures of Mr. Gray and Kate with her pre-boob job and bikini body. Mr. Gray lost weight before the NC days too. I think something was going on, Kate professed her innocence (outrage) too much and she did what she always did, shoved it in the "haters" faces by taking him to NC.
Imho, Kate looked better when she and Jon were going to NYC around the fall (yellow jacket era) before Kate bulked up her arms, legs and squared her torso.

Arieslikekate said...

I was reading an old magazine today that said Kate feels she is too big to stay living in PA.

Now that's true!

Harriet said...

That's odd as a recent show Jon said they were attending full time three days a week this Fall and the hours, schedule he mentioned matches the same as the church school.

The church school program is not quite a half-day long. The private school program is a full school day. So no, it doesn't match the church school schedule.

What the tups are doing/have done is three days a week (unless they missed for filming) for about 2 1/2 hours a day of 4 year old preschool and now they are going to do three days a week of about six hours a day of 4 year old preschool.

Its a duck said...

There are no PHOTOS of Kate and Steve the bodyguard being intimate, but a radio DJ was staying in the same hotel as them in Calif., and said "and who comes strolling through the parking lot holding hands? Kate Gosselin and that grey haired guy."
#2 Mady ran yelling and screaming from Kate's bedroom at night in NC when she saw "Mommy kissing Steve."
It said she woke up the whole house, and within 2 days the twins were back in Pa. with Jon. Plus several attendees of her appearences say how the two of them touch each in a "loving manner" Nothing like the way she treats Jon. So YOU figure it out. If it keeps looking like a duck and you hear quacking....

GAmom said...

Wait a minute- these kids are 5 years old...WHY are they still in preschool?? They should be going into kindergarten. They aren't even young 5's. Someone please explain.
