Well Kate, when you are curled up alone in your hotel room emeshed in self pity and exhaustion from your daily spa visits, I hope you pop on and read this blog and I really must ask why you do not have a stylist? Too arrogant to think you need one? Im sure TLC will pay for it since you have no problem with them paying for everything else. You really need to look in a mirror and realize that ill fitting sundresses that belong on 20 somethings do not look good on you. I see the mini-skirt is back..I guess Steve will soon be back on the scene then? As for the hats..I had an eccentric neighbor of 92 who wore those same kind of hats..she used to pull weeds from her garden and toss them over her fence and yell at passers by..maybe that is your future too Kate?

Scroll past the Mischa Barton part.

JON & KATE AND SOME STORMY WEATHER: Estranged spouses and reality TV stars Jon and Kate Gosselin got together on Wednesday to film an upcoming segment of their show "Jon & Kate Plus 8," and reports say it was not the warmest of gatherings.

At the family's Wernersville, Pa., home on Wednesday morning, Jon and Kate played with their kids outside, but remained cool toward each other. The couple announced in a recent episode of their show they were separating, and the show went on hiatus. But producers have begun filming new episodes that will focus on the couple raising their eight children amid the strains of a crumbling marriage.

Since the separation, Jon Gosselin has wooed himself a new girlfriend: Hailey Glassman, the 22-year-old daughter of a plastic surgeon who did a tummy tuck on Kate. Reportedly, Hailey wants to help Jon development a new line of kids clothes, as well. The spate of Internet profiles on Hailey have not been kind, describing her as a hard-partying gold-digger who is prone to sleep with anyone who isn't nailed down (male or female). None of these reports, of course, could be verified independently.

An eyewitness told People magazine that Jon and Kate were cool but "civil" toward each other at Wednesday's screening. They stayed with each other and the kids for a little while, and then she packed her luggage in her car and left."

Puddymoors said...

Just Jared is publishing a quote from the jeweller who has sold Jon his engagement ring for the new peice of fluff. I must say that I know have no respect for his either ... so much for people who were God focussed. They have made a complete mockery of their wedding vows and family values.

I don't suppose that whatever place allowed the travesty of a marriage vow renewal to go ahead is now demanding their money back?

vipersue said...

I was thinking today that when Kate filed for divorce that Mon and said something like it was due to the events that occured over the previous weekend. I don't think I ever read what happened over that weekend. Can anyone enlighten me. I try to keep up but there is alot to keep up with. Many thanks.

Mia said...

@vipersue

Maybe the 'actions' Kate was referring to when she said she had no choice but to file for divorce were because Jon informed her that he was engaged

Nothing would surprise me with these two dysfunctional fools

Just me said...

Mia,
I am having a real ef up night so thanks for making me laugh about the hats....

CityGirl said...

Has anyone else noticed that the children NEVER have a smile on their faces? Whether in tabloids, front lawn, alone in a shopping cart with kate. NEVER. I am even a little afraid of the kids being left alone with her and her mood swings. By now, I'm sure the kids know when mommy will be loving (when the cameras are there) and when they need to hide under a rock. They just look sad.

Taryn said...

Jon is now supposedly engaged to that girl, according to the jeweler that sold them the ring.

It dawned on me after watching the Golden Girls that Jon is a younger version of Stan Zbornak. I half-expect him to get some horrible toupee and get a job selling plastic dog crap.

Can you imagine Kate answering the door and finding Jon standing there in a toupee saying, "Hi, it's me, Jon." It really isn't a stretch to imagine it!

This guy is more pathetic by the day.

Jon and Kate are NERDS said...

Ummm let's see.....Gotta have my pink cellie in my hands along with my fancy wanncy cup o java while pretending to be a good mom and help little Aaiden up into the van. Geez I hope that I don't spill and hot liquid on him.

Keep Spending Kids' Money said...

Jon and Kate are spending the kids' money crazy. He bought his new girlfriend an expensive ring and rent an expensive apartment with his kids' college money. Kate is going to bring Steve back since Jon is so open about his girlfriend. These two nasty parents are behind stupid.

I guess they don't realize they won't last in showbiz for more than 3 years because both of them have no real talent and are never talents. They spend money as if they are established actors or singers like Jim Carey or Maria Carey. Please! Wake up already!

A musician can bounce back from bad press and make money if the new tracks sound good to most people's ears. An actor can have a comeback if he gets a good script and does a good job. What can Jon and Kate do to entertain? Nothing. They don't have any talent to overpower bad press like entertainers. Besides posing, these two don't know nothing.

Now some stupid magazine is asking if the twins are the next Olson twins. Must be TLC camp tries to hype and market the twins. Please! Not even close. Olson twins were never obnoxious like Maddy. Regardless what you think of their acting skill, Olson twins are actually actors who can take directions on the set. You think Maddy can take directions without throwing tantrum? Nobody would hire a unpopular moody child for any project to torture themselves. Only in the world of reality TV, they can make a tv show out of you walking, sleeping, and eating. It won't last. But you will have 15 minutes of fame alright and people will watch and complain about how lame you are. Sooner or later, they will move on to complain about someone else.

Kimberly said...

I wonder if Jon used a coupon to buy that ring. So much for saving money by using coupons and going to Costco kind of bulk store.

If you don't spend money on stupid things like pricey New York apartment and ring, you will not have to spend so much time clipping coupons.

jojo said...

Jon and Kate Plus 8 is a fiction not reality. The parents already separated before tabloids called them out.

They are only nice to their kids when the cameras are on. When the cameras are off, the two lazy parents don't really physically take care of the kids. There are helpers and nannies provided by the production company to do the work. The parents either go out or go back to their rooms or lounge on sofa.

It's sad. But it is how it is. The parents are fake. The kids are on their way to turn into mini Jon and mini Kate. They will inherit the same values like their parents - entitlement, selfishness, disrespect, deceiving for money, and selling your family for profit.

Take Paws said...

Just say NO said...

Steve is a poor excuse for a man as well as a bodyguard if he would even consider going back to that fiasco. Maybe what we thought all along is true. If its not, why would he compromise his reputation KNOWING that everyone thinks they were far too close. AND what's wrong with his wife, does she have NO backbone, and put her foot down.

...........................
I really question "Jon started the rumors about Kate and Steve".
Was that just another statement out of "Camp Kate" to make Kate look like the victim? If there really is nothing going on between Steve and Kate then he is as money hungry as KON. For most people, there wouldn't be enough money to get them to spend time with her -- IMO.

M. said...

Dlisted has skewered Jon again (a little vulgar language on this one, but funny). Funny picture of Jon pretending to carry a very heavy box while making sure the 'Juicy Juice' logo is facing the camera. Nice going dad - moving to another state shows you're really a 'caring dad'. New York City has enough cockroaches Jon!

Underpaid said...

I thought Kate's Healthtex clothing deal was on-hold indefinitely...
I work at a Wal-mart in the Mid-West, and guess what came in last night? Boys Healthtex shirts bearing the regular Healthtex hang-tag AND a second hang-tag featuring Kate's picture. It also included an email address-so you can get an email with tips "from America's Busiest Mom"
The shirts were Rugby-style shirts for fall/winter. Cute, but nothing spectacular. Oh, and the price is $8.00.

Vanessa said...

I thought the photos of Kate brushing the dogs and the ones of her farewell to the kids were a little over the top. THEY WERE FILMNG! Ohhh. When it's just the paps, she just sits there on her ass like a tool, with that snarly look on her face or she smacks one of the kids. But when it's "showtime", her "other" personality comes out, "Ms. Nicey-nice" is ON!! It IS a soap opera, with just as crazy of a storyline as most soaps. I wonder if they'll write it off as all a dream and start over again? It's the usual cop-out when a storyline gets a little too outrageous.
Ah, but I guess not, NOT for "realest reality show"
Oh, and off topic--can you actually get engaged if your divorce isn't finalized?

Rosie said...

If Health IS paying Kate and marketing her 'line' of kids clothing, then they are a bunch of LIARS. They specifically said that "Kate's line was shelved" and the clothing that was produced was going overseas. MORE money that she's making for doing nothing. She'll just wait home for her check to come in the mail. Someone ought to call Healthtex out on THIS one.
Why lie to the consumers who wanted an honest answer.

Pamela Jaye said...

Civil? Gee, that would be an improvement.

Pamela Jaye said...

hey, when will the tell all books by the production crew be out?

if they wait too long to write them, no one is going to care.

so, has Walter Cronkite now kicked Kate off the entertainment shows? I haven't checked. Kate will probably have the kids out on the driveway again. Someone should give that woman some attention - she's obviously in need of it. Professional attention, maybe?

----------------------------------
I also have a question regarding this whole story

if this divorce was filed due to the events happened over the weekend then how come they were showing the promos of "big announcement" a week before. Even they had a very staged promo for this one that "this decision will affect each and every member of our family?"
if the divorce was due to just weekend's events then what was the big announcement a week ago?

chick said...

Well, it's possible that walmart/healthtex are just going to "test market" the items that have already been produced, rather than taking the time to re-tag stuff. Yes, I know it wouldn't cost much to do that, but no business is going to double spend on production these days.

If people buy the stuff with the Shrew's picture on the tag, the deal will be back on. If not, no harm, no foul.

Kannie said...

This show is dead. They've dredged up practically every TLC 'personality' for a cross-promotional appearance. (Message to Cake Boss, Stacy & Clinton and Jen & Bill: Do not take calls or open emails from the J-K8 production company). They've been to every amusement park and cupcake factory. There is nothing left for the Gosselins to do or say. The exploits of two childish, selfish, greedy, and not very bright fame whores is not going to attract a stable enough audience - long term - to keep advertisers. The Gosselin scam has been exposed and the fallout is ugly. Advertisers want their product associated with something positive. This show is negative, angry and toxic. Pity those darling children for being cursed with these parents.

Its ALL so wrong said...

Thats whats wrong in this country.
People 'blindly' support this kind of travesty. The two of them are NOBODIES, yet Kate puts out a couple of silly books and BANG, she's a 'best selling author'. Then she snags a tv show for a one time deal and AGAIN people liked it and TLC hit pay dirt (we'll do a series). With the show being on a million times a day, all the sponsors want on the bandwagon, and AGAIN all freebees from the sponsors come rolling in..and expensive ones at that. Remember FOUR sets of washer/dryers from whirlpool,refrige, microwave, dishwasher, crooked houses, furniture, cars and vans, etc, etc.
Before you know it a DIVA is born and a manchild gets all the goodies that Daddy isn't around anymore to give him. Its all mind boggling.

PattyWithNoPity said...

Some observations on Radaronline.com most recent photos of the gaggle of Gosselins going to the Dr.
Can't tell if this is being filmed; but wouldn't surprise me.
Maddy obviously STILL dislikes that camera!
Joel looks nervous and It looks as if Aidan is reassuring him. Not Kate or Jon.
Now Kate is sporting an old mans' fedora. Which on a young starlet with LONG hair still looks stupid.
Kate forgot her green purse to match her green shirt and FUGLY green shoes. And the big green bruise on her thigh! Maybe too much wine??
She looks a little rough around the edges..hungover?
And the aforementioned miniskirt is back and on crooked!
Okay; snark over..

Tazz said...

If I'm the Cake Boss, I'd tell them to shove it. They went to Ace of Cakes over him.

Well said my friend, well said!!!

So they've sucked America dry, does this really mean they ARE going overseas?? Egads.

Times up said...

The show is done, over, cooked.
Why do they keep kicking a dead horse. We all know the truth with these two, and no matter how TLC tries to twist it differently, no one believes them anymore.
J&K should take all the money they made and all the freebees, invest in the future, and just GO AWAY.

marie1499 said...

re:coupons
maybe the coupons were really gift certificates for free merchandise from the many corporations that bought the hype. Cents off an item is not Jon & Kate's style, they live much bigger than that.

luvthekids said...

Well, I am glad they get free Juicy juice, because they don't have the money to buy the kids food with the all the spa bills, coffee runs, not a nanny fees, body guard wages and the new york apartment/hotel and keeping kate's hair done and keeping Jon's girlfriends in handbags. Maybe we could all ask a dairy farm if they would send freebies, I have never seen the kids drink milk, have you?

TUNDRA said...

I could be wrong, but the way I understand it is it's the fall line of Healthtex clothing people are seeing in Walmart, beyond that, Kate's future involvement with Healthtex was put on hold.

Coupons? NO. Giftcards yes said...

Marie1499.. you are absolutly correct the "coupons" WERE gift cards from all the local merchants.
Once she had mentioned it in passing. I know Giant, Home Depot, clothing stores and many others gave them gift cards to spend how they wished, and I'm sure that's why she went off on Jon for 'buying' the shower heads. They would have been FREE.

Chris said...

These kids need to have a guardian ad litem appointed for them STAT, before their loathsome, parasitic parents blow through the entire wad of cash that THE KIDS EARNED.

I Concur. Quite a shift from Kate's previous overly orange tan, veneered smile,pancake makeup wearing , professionally styled abliet hideous hair to the present day sans makeup scowling face, hat of the day wearing, tag showing, twisted skirt, and hunching posture. Hurts a little when you are tossed from that ego built pedestal back down to the white plastic chair.

DeadBeaverOnHerHead said...

The reason that Kate is wearing all of those fugly fedoras is because the TLC hair and makeup people were not there everyday to touch up the Dead Beaver on her head. She can't get the Dead Beaver look on her own, she needs help for that!
Once she was left to do her own her, like millions of other mommies across this nation, she hadn't a clue as to how to do it.

abbie said...

It baffles me when I see Kate go to such extremes to clip coupons and save money, yet uses paper plates everyday, for almost every meal. The woman has a dishwasher, FGS. Eight plates too much for her to wash by hand? I raised 3 kids all alone, and washed every dish BY HAND. None of my children suffered from the few extra minutes a day and when they got older helped me dry, etc. if Kate would get some help (therapy and/or drugs) for her OCD, she might be a little more calm and actually enjoy an agenda-free with her kids. Spotless is not a necessity.
Ijust had to post this because it really irks me to see those kids eating off paper. Bad enough they have to eat all organic stuff, how can they afford that? Eat overpriced natural food on paper plates. My heads spinning. Please Kate, never tell us you plan to "go green". Those paper plates would be the first thing to go.

RunAmok! said...

Ok it's official: I am REALLY doubting the sanity of Kon at this point. At first? Meh; might be flukes or "poor choices." But after constant stories of poor choices? (trans: WEIRD behavior)?? Nope. They have gone nuts. Run amok. Take your pick of descriptives.
Oh, and I INCLUDE STEVE Neild in that assessment, if he is choosing to return to this fiasco! And his "Security company?" )(Prudential Associates, I believe) Very UNprofessional to let their employee return to this "assignment" in light of rumors that have circulated, whether true or Untrue!

saratogachris said...

I can't believe that these two idiots felt they needed a bodyguard to go to a children's doctor appointment! In the pictures on Radaronline, there is a man, (mean looking) wearing a black polo shirt that has to be their bodyguard. What? There are two of them... who would assault them in front of a suburban office in PA? A simple, "get the f outta my way" would probably work.

I'm OVER these ridiculous people!

LisaAtTheBeach said...

Ok, I get it now. J&K and TLC never thought there would be so many celebrity deaths over the last month to throw them off the front pages of America. Now they are all scrambling to get some big ticket items out there to drum up interest for their August premiere. Wow, they are really desperate. Now Kate is in NYC with the kids for (probably) another People cover of them and her "brave" struggle which will come out the week of the premiere, similar to the Mother's Day story. I guess she will then take off the hat so we can all see her new hairdo. What a low life, scum sucking bunch of people they all are. My, how the high (and almighty) have fallen.

rolohi said...

Delurking to say that the whole family looks a little rough around the edges. Kate definitely looks like she's been ridden hard and put away wet, so to speak. She just looks, well, dirty (maybe it's because of her habit of going barefoot around her property, not to mention gas stations). The kids look woebegone--wrinkly, mismatched clothes, tattered crocs and the girls' hair needs a good brushing. Yes, it's summer, and my kids are a little more raggedy than normal, but from the photos, anyway, the Gosselin kids look like they need some attention. Breaks my heart, actually.

Kannie said...

Tazz said...

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

I bet TLC tried to get Kate on the show and the Cake Boss told them to get lost. That's why they went to the Food Network's "Ace". Who in their right mind wants to be associated with the Gosselins? (case in point Hailey Glassman)

The magic ingredient that led to the success of J&K8 - family values - is gone and nothing can bring it back. Cake Boss is a feel good 'family values' show (Italian Catholic extended family). So is Little People Big World and The Little Couple and that Duggar show. It's the same format that was originally used to market J&K8 to the viewing public. That format doesn't fit the 'new' Gosselins. Jon and Kate have destroyed their family unit. (The format is also being used to market a new TLC show about a group of tough looking Broward County women cops. They're being portrayed as kick ass gals at work and devoted moms at home)

What a disappointment it is that Duff Goldman and the Charm City Cakes crew agreed to participate in the exploitation of the Gosselin children. Shame on them.

GWOPers......it's time to start making preliminary plans for your "Goodbye Jon & Kate" parties!! The end is near.

Final curtain said...

Jon and Kate, its over for the two of you, DONE. The curtain is coming down. Time for the both of you to take your final bow.

Kissing in the dark said...

Mandy, Yes,it was reported in the news that when Kate was in NC on vacation with Steve and the kids, that Mady got up at night and went into Kate's bedroom and saw "mommy kissing Steve" she was so upset that she started crying and screaming to Cara, and woke up everyone in the house. Within two days the twins were on their way back to Jon in Pa.

Jon and Kate are cheapskate to the kids said...

"Well, I am glad they get free Juicy juice, because they don't have the money to buy the kids food with the all the spa bills, coffee runs, not a nanny fees, body guard wages and the new york apartment/hotel... Maybe we could all ask a dairy farm if they would send freebies, I have never seen the kids drink milk, have you?"

Kate once said she doesn't buy milk unless it's on sale. She complained it's too expensive to feed 8 kids milk at regular price. What a load of #$#@$! Her ugly clothes, many bikinis that are too small for her saggy body, Jon's carS, her new car, Jon's new apartment, ring, her spa treatment...all those stuff spent on her and Jon, if they could cut down a few, the kids could afford to drink milk at regular price for life and still get some change back.

They go cheap on the kids but very generous to themselves. Low life!

I grew up in a big family too. My parents didn't only feed us foods that were on sale. They gave us whatever was good for us regardless it's on sale that week or not.

STLmom said...

I am confused, I thought it was Jon's weekend. Is this an old article?

abbie said...if Kate would get some help (therapy and/or drugs) for her OCD, she might be a little more calm and actually enjoy an agenda-free with her kids. Spotless is not a necessity.
********
Kate does not have OCD about germs. People with OCD really SUFFER from their inability to stop the repetition, "checking" to make sure something they just did is actually done, irrational fears, etc. OCD interferes with their quality of life, since they are enslaved by their rituals; they can't just "turn it off" when it's inconvenient.

Kate showed the world the bottoms of her grubby feet up on the furniture, more than once. She displayed not only her contempt for the viewers and her lack of class, but she also showed us that being so uptight about germs and dirt is all just an act. I have no IDEA why she'd complain about clothing stains when she doesn't even do their laundry, except that maybe she's trying to "stay in character."

Funny...even though she wouldn't agree to bring extra clothes or just let the children get dirty and enjoy outings at the Crayola factory, etc., she somehow doesn't mind changing her OWN clothes three times a day just to hang out in the driveway so the paps can take pictures. Remember those July 4th pics? She must've changed at LEAST that many times!

She's a hypocrite about so many things...

Becky Q in PA said...

Jon and Kate are cheapskate to the kids said...

Kate once said she doesn't buy milk unless it's on sale.

******
That one should go in the "Catching Kate's Lies" thread, because MILK DOESN'T GO ON SALE IN PA! We have state-mandated minimum prices for milk.

I have no idea why those mean farmers (who work from dawn to dusk to eke out a living and still barely survive) don't just GIVE the "poor" Gosselins free milk! After all...they deserve to have everything handed to them, right?

Rachel said...

People is reporting that the Duggars and Kate plus 8 are in the same hotel in NYC.

Man, that would be awesome.

Just realized today that if there are "helpers" for the kids, someone else holds the kids hands while Kate speed walks.

If I had 8 young children and were walking in NYC surrounded by paps, I'd do my best to have a hold of someone!!!

xsandlapper said...

Big photoshoot today.

http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20292155,00.html

So class why are some cameras scarey and others ok? I know! I know! KONs don't get paid for the P's Pics!

cottagequeso gal said...

Steve the bodyguard looks pretty classy and put together. IMO I just can NOT picture him with the shrew, no WAY!! She looks like she's puffed up and has gained weight and is trying to overcompenstate with short skirts, baby-doll dresses and high wedgies, etc. In short, she looks like trailer trash. The only thing missing is a ciggie handing from the corner of her mouth

Scottie said...

I just finished reading In Touch magazine and in the article they call Kate devoutly religious which made me laugh :)

cottagequeso gal said...

Becky Q in PA: Once again, I gotta say, you're right on!! I'm referring to your assessment of Khate's alleged 'OCD'. I TOTALLY agree!! There's absolutely nothing OCD about her 'germophobia'. It's all an act. Surprise, surprise!!! What a fruitcake

Lisa CA said...

Many of the tabloids are right on target and their information is accurate so I would not be too quick to dismiss that Kate was caught kissing Steve.

WallyWinnie said...

Did anyone see Jon and Kate made this weekends SOUP again?

I saw it today on the repeat of Fridays show, and I believe there were 2 segments on them.

Details about Hailey and France and the clothing lines!

It was quite a long Soup segment!

Bet Kate is happy they are in the news again, especially in the wake of Walter Cronkites death.

realitybites said...

I dont care what anyone says, the media, PR statements, J & K (individually or collectively), 'inside sources', or even Kevin & Jodi for that matter; but the Jon and Kate Gosselin marriage was and has been O.V.E.R looooooooooooong before it was reported in the tabloids and ultimately confirmed on the J & K + 8 reality show. The process of their filing for divorce some 20+ days ago was merely a technicality on their part to LEGALLY dissolve the marriage. All this media spin and the daily taking turns of which parent is going to look like the 'good guy' vs the 'bad guy' in the 'court of public opinion' nonsense is beyond an INSULT to even the most casual of observer!

Kissing in the dark said...

I also saw the story about Mady catching Steve and Kate kissing in NC, reported on tv, not just in the mags. You know what? I 100% believe it. Kate is a liar, a phony and a big sneak. She'd been away from home FAR too long without a husband in NC when that happened. I think she tried, and got caught.

Kannie said...

I can't believe the uber-religious and prim & proper Duggars would chose to have anything to do with the sinner Gosselins unless they are contractually obligated to. Would love to be a fly on the wall when Jon tells papa Duggar all the gory details of his weekend in France with Hailey. Any sight of the Little Couple and the Cake Boss? Maybe this New York photo shoot thing is for promo pictures and commercials to air during the season, which could be awfully short for the Gosselins.

ManicNarcissism said...

On the OCD issue, I think she did have her issues after the tups. The only way I saw it materialize was all the dang lists and post its. My MIL has OCD hang ups, she does checking for lights and doors locked, she makes lists upon lists and there are post its for everything she has to do even things you can't forget like bring keys. It doesn't inhibit her life except maybe to make her more exhausted doing normal stuff that we all do. I think there are probably functioning people that OCD tendencies.

I think she started all the lists and such to try to "control" the completely out of control situation of having 6 kids at one time. This would not be easy for anyone whether you are maternal or not. When she started she couldn't do it all, so she made lists for it all. I believe as it progressed and she had all the help she did the lists were to not only control others but also to keep busy organizing what should be done so she didn't have to do any of it.

I think that Kate was pretty normal at one point. I think she loved the twins and took care of them like a normal mom. She might have had her quirks and her personality flaws (anyone here doesn't?) But, I think the Kate we see today is a progression. It started with wanting multiples (not just one more) and never stopped from conception of 7 until now. She then got attention, then she got to quit working, then she had help, then she had people she could boss around, then she got a TV show, then her TV show became popular, then she kinda wrote a book (as much as any other "star" writes their books), then she became a best selling author (vomit a little), then she had people waiting hours to see her, then women are saying ridiculously ridiculous, then women are copying her hair style, then 10 million people watch her show..

And that is how we got Kate (not Katie). Totally JMHO.

More then meets the eye said...

You've got it wrong. When Mady and Cara got home from NC, one of Jon's friends reported that Mady told Jon what happened in NC with Steve and Kate. That's how it hit the news. Jon TOLD someone.
Why is this so hard to believe?
Kate wants Steve BACK again as a bodyguard. Why him?
With all the security in this county, why does she need more gossip by hiring Steve. I think because there's more then meets the eye.

That's what happened said...

realitybites...you said it all.

Told what she saw said...

Why is someone constantly saying they don't believe that Mady caught Kate and Steve kissing?
What's such a big deal to believe.
All the signs were there.
The twins got home and told Jon.
What do you mean Mady or Cara wouldn't tell. Of course they did.

a rose is a rose said...

When Kate said that she doesn't buy milk unless its on sale, is her way of saying "its not FREE"
So of course shes not spending her (the kids) money on it.

Kannie said...

TLC promo event took place today in NY, according to People Mag. Little Couple spotted.

They just forgot to mention that she worships the almighty DOLLAR.

In the new issue of People, Jon said something along the lines of he didn't want to leave France but had to come back to work, but in a couple of days, him and Hayley would have a "real" vacation that nobody knows the location of so that the paps will not be there.

TUNDRA said...

Personally? I don't believe for one minute that Jon is the source of the rumors about Kate and Steve Neild. Rather, I think that's what TLC wants/needs people to believe to (1) save face for TLC and (2) salvage the reputation of Neild and his security firm.

Kiki said...

No men I know who've watched the show would get within a mile of Kate Gosselin. Why would any man subject himself to that misery? Except perhaps to try to get his hands on some of her money. If this married security guard is in fact involved with her, he must have a fetish for self-torture.

JS said...

I know I am echoing the sentiments of many, but I cannot believe TLC continues to produce and promote this show.

I am a college-educated, married mother of 2 young children.

I liked Jon & Kate when the show first started, but the more I watched, the more upset I became about the way Kate treated Jon and the way they'd talk about their kids, particularly Mady. I kept thinking, if they really want to do this to document their kids' early lives, why would they talk so negatively about one child??

And since I've had my own 2 kids, I've found it even harder to imagine exploiting them for my own financial gain.

I am so angry that the Gosselins kids are being victimized by the show and their parents' ridiculous antics. Kate's an idiot-- and what the hell is up with Jon and Hailey?? Come on man, show some respect for and sensitivity to the needs of your children.

I am boycotting TLC. I will not be a party to this madness.

rockypriscilla said...

Oh yeah, I forgot that Christian Audigier said in the People article that he googled Jon and he's huge so he invited him to France. He said everyone knows who this family is so now everyone will know his clothes. Then Jon says something like "who knew that wearing his clothes would lead to job for me?" and says that the kids would model the clothes. He's so dumb. He was absolutely used for free marketing for Ed Hardy.

Kim said...

I am sick of the public manipulation that Kate tries to pull. Her picnic-ing alone with the kids....her sitting alone in the yard...her strong desire to have the media leave her alone...yeah right.

Stop sitting in the front yard!

Go out your back door and we would never see you.

PattyWithNoPity said...

I just saw new pics on Radarlomline of NYC..
First pic has Katie Irene in an unflattering purple tank top.
The lumpy boobage has reappeared as well; like the shots of her in that flimsy pink dress talking to the cops the day she spanked Leah..
What is up with that? Crummy bra; bad surgery or what?
And the tup girls are wearing sleeveless tank dresses and TIGHTS. In July. Looks dumb.

VB Mom of 2 Boys said...

The adventures of Jon and Hailey made the Soup this week. According to Joel McHale, Jon is now the new K-Fed.

TUNDRA said...

Actually, the Star names its source for a story they did on Kate and Steve in San Diego in March 09 with Mady and it was a woman who was staying at the same resort. Kate's brother Kevin is another source identified by the Star. Where has Steve been since the NC vacation and the divorce announcement? He's laid more low than Jon or Kate, LOLS.

Maybe this has been said before, the thing that gets me the MOST angry about this family and entire situation is that exactly 80% of all income should be put away for the kids, and I'm sure that is not happening.

Asher said...

Look at the craziness surrounding their latest photoshoot. Surely they can't allow this charade to go on for much longer. And look at the expressions on those poor kids faces. Doesn't look like anyone is having fun, does it??

http://gosselins.sosugary.com/thumbnails.php?album=102

Remember Kate's comments on the show about when they would stop filming - something to the effect of "When it is no longer fun, when it no longer seems natural and normal for us". I think that point is long past.

Shocking Truth said...

Correction, In Kate's N.C. Blog on the 2nd day Mady found a Sand Dollar. THEN they went home. No pics of them there. HMMMMMMMMMM. Pretend they weren't there & Mady didnt see anyhing?????? Then no more Steve. Put the pieces together. These children are going to be so messed up. The wedding renewal...So many confusing things for a child. TLC YOU ARE MONSTERS!!! STOP THIS!!!

Meow said...

TLC stopping the show would be like throwing Kate to the lions.

Open your eyes said...

Why would people find the Kate and Steve story suspect. What's so hard to see. It had nothing to do with Jon, he wasn't there. But, yes the helpers, nannies and hangers on were. Mady freaked out and poof, the twins were back in Pa. Comeon folks,
don't be in denial and blame Jon this time. Plus, it is OLD news now, it happened a while ago.

TUNDRA said...

I don't consider the person who stayed at the same resort as Steve and Kate in San Diego and shared her observations/opinions with the Star to be an "anonymous" source. Her name was used in the article.

Tuesday said...

"Producers have begun filming new episodes that will focus on the couple raising their eight child amid the strains of a crumbling marriage." Jon and Kate sure know how to throw a party. Now THAT is summertime, family-fun entertainment at its best. I'm so jealous. The braniac that decided this would be a show people want to watch is a genius!!! I'm a super TLC fan now. What a great family-friendly program!

Seriously. said...

Let me just throw this out. Carla's daughter was there in N.C & I'm sure she signed a confidential agreement not to talk but.....Hellooo, She is a Teenager. Do you really think if she was woken up in the night by Mady screaming & crying to Cara that she wouldn't call home or text a friend & tell them the chaos going on. Word travels fast. Would you think of a "contract" at that age? Nope. You'd tell a friend. Like "OMG, this is crazy! I got no sleep..." Lots of sources!!! Hint Hint

Susan C. said...

Has anyone considered the possibiity that Jon was lying when he told Kevin and Jodi that he thought Kate was having an affair with Steve, hoping that they would talk to the media?

rockypriscilla said...

According to Star Magazine, Maria Shriver's conference spokeswoman Marissa Moss says "Kate's life has definately changed since Maria invited her. But we welcome that. Kate is coping with the same things many of us encounter, just on a much bigger stage."

I could not agree with you more! I am a college-educated married mom of a young child also. I, too, used to be a fan of the show. But for about a year I've been outraged by these two parents. It disgusts me how they could exploit their children like this!

I saw an article in People about the paparazzi clashing with the security guards of the Gosselins in NYC. One witness noted that it must have been upsetting for the kids. That is so incredibly sad! Why are these children required to work and support their parents the way they do? They deserve to have normal childhoods, without cameras and fame. It's absolutely outrageous.

As for TLC, they disgust me too, but what do you expect from a tv channel? But Jon and Kate are the parents. Parents are supposed to protect their children.

It just frustrates me so much that now so much focus is being put on Jon and his ridiculous girlfriend. People are losing sight of the real issue...the children! It just makes me sad for them.

Ella Bean said...

So Kate, was it worth it? Your marriage, your children's stability and happiness? Did you even love Jon, or did you just want those semi-Asian children you'd get out of him?

And Jon, was it worth it? Your marriage, your children, your life? Those earrings? The new girlfriend? The new apartment? The big screen tv you're moving into said apartment? Really?

And TLC, was it worth it? A bunch of innocent children's lives?

You, TLC, are just as bad as Maury Povich. 10 years from now Maury will be doing a "my daddy was found on Maury show" and how messed up these children are. I wouldn't be surprised if you do the same with the Gosselins.

Jenny said...

Tundra,
Thanks for posting that link.

I just had to laugh when seeing that poor girl and Steve hauling all that crap in from the beach.
(there is no way that man is a bodyguard - he can barely see over the top of all that junk he's carrying - how is he keeping an eye on the kids?)

It makes me think Kate is a bigger Beeyatch than ever.

I need to see those pics to remind my why Jon is out doing his thing.

I do not think it's right - but we all have to remember how she treated him like CRAP for the last TEN YEARS.
That man was in PRISON -- and probably had not had an intimate relationship with Kate for probably the last five years or more -- so in a way - I can hardly blame him.
Kate isn't just a little bit of a beeyatch -- she is more than anyone in the public eye I have ever, ever seen - - it's simply astounding!!

clofrogg said...

KEEP SPENDING THE KID'S MONEY

Now some stupid magazine is asking if the twins are the next Olson twins. Must be TLC camp tries to hype and market the twins. Please! Not even close. Olson twins were never obnoxious like Maddy. Regardless what you think of their acting skill, Olson twins are actually actors who can take directions on the set. You think Maddy can take directions without throwing tantrum? Nobody would hire a unpopular moody child for any project to torture themselves. Only in the world of reality TV, they can make a tv show out of you walking, sleeping, and eating. It won't last. But you will have 15 minutes of fame alright and people will watch and complain about how lame you are. Sooner or later, they will move on to complain about someone else.
I find it pretty cruel that you are willing to attack a child's behavior, when said child is brought up in a home like this one. If you had to compete with seven other children, six of them younger than you. I think that you would do anything possible to gain your parents attention. I think at this point Maddy (just like any other child) is going to be happy with ANY attention she can get. Bad attention is better than no attention at all. This is her way to cope. I am sure they all have their way.
One of Hannah little things was throwing up when she got upset. Not because she found vomiting pleasurable, but it did get attention from her parents.
I think it is pretty crummy of you to attack an eight year old like that.
I doubt this site is here for you to slander innocent children.

Puddymoors said...

Last night in Australia we got the rerun of the wedding vow renewal. I've never seen it before, but it struck me that at times in the couch shots they seemed happy ... but the way Kate went on and on about doing it in front of the kids to show them was beyond strange.
I was puzzeled as it's not as though we've heard about how many of their family have divorced (so the kids have had to witness the fallout). Nor do many kids actually need to see their parents renew their vows to know that it will last forever.
I was also a little amazed at how Jon's family weren't very involved with the kids. At ceremonies I've been to with lots of kids, all the aunties and uncles and friends chip in to help keep the kids, quiet and involved. Instead at this wedding it was one Jenny and Jon and Kate. The family also appeared to be sitting in the back rows. Strange!

gailhair said...

The pictures in NY are so sad. TLC must stop this because Jon and Kate surely won't.

Is it possible that they're no longer capable of considering the children at all.

It must end.

Lots of women do deal with a husband leaving them and taking up with a younger woman. I think if you don't know the show and now pretty much what is in the tabloids, it makes sense what is being said.

marriedtoagreatguy said...

I think Ann Taylor has advisers, stylist for Kate, they are giving her free clothes I think.

It's all about the money... said...

So I guess nothing has changed. TLC is filming, HealthTex is selling at WalMart, Juicy Jucie is still prob sending free juice, ect... so next is Kate's book comming out? Mmmm so what next is TLC going to be filming the divorce procedings, the custody negotiations with their lawyers, the nasty fight Kate will stage all for the sake of HER kids. I pray for the kids that one day soon they will be happy and have smiles on their faces (not for the cameras sake but for real). Do they plan on filming at school? What a train wreck, I can see Kate asking for 100% custody. I wonder if TLC is getting Jon's apartment furnished and Kate's new place furnished? How come the paps havent found out where Kate's new place is? I wish Aunt Jodi would do another interview and let us know what she has found out.

grannyoftwo said...

so Jon and Hayley are going on another vaca in a few days, is that all these people think about, where they can go, what they can buy, what they can have? There are people starving in this country, children starving in this country Jon, couldn't you try to put some of that HARD-earned money to some good use like helping someone like that? You know the Bible says to give someone one of your coats if you have two. Did you forget all of your beliefs? Or were they always bogus? Have fun while it lasts Jon, because I am pretty sure the fall is going to be a bad one, and it may take all of the kids to pick you up if they are still around.

grannyoftwo said...

my GS is on a kids television show, and to get enough footage for just a few minutes of television viewing he has to sit and be filmed for hours, I noticed that the story from the newest photo shoot said something like they went in to the shoot and four hours later they came out in new outfits. That meant they were in there for at least that long taking photos, don't tell me those kids aren't working. Now for my GS it is a different story, he asked to audition for it, he made the choice,and he can quit when he wants, those kids never had a chance to ask, they were babies.

ManicNarcissism said...

Yeah I have considered that. That is why until I see Kate and Steve either in France on a yacht together, or holding hands in a pap pic or she tells People magazine that she is moving on, that it is still in the maybe column for me.

This has to be photoshopped...it couldn't possibly be Khate and the poor children. They are all on hiatus until August 2...(dripping with sarcasm)...

Shame on you Kate for throwing your kids under the bus for a buck...and shame on you Eileen O'Neill for doing the same...

ManicNarcissism said...

For those that are saying because mady and cars went home it was because the kissing story was true I want to just throw a few random thoughts out there.

Cara and mady had to home they had days of school left and tips didn't.

Also, if I think of myself in Kate's position (barf) and the twins are upset about what they saw the last thing I would want to do is send them right on to dad. I would if trying to keep it secret, keep them for more days so I could fill their little heads with happy memories to talk about before just to hope they won't mention it,

Not taking up for Kate. I think she did chest, but not because of any tab stories yet but because she is not blasting Jon mercilessly for cheating. I think if she was really innocent she would be screaming from the rooftops what an ungodly man he is. She would be trashing him even more. But she hasnt focused solely on his adultery and that makes me think it is because she can't because she is guilty too.

If Steve really does come back that is just crazy!

brennie said...

The bodyguards also protect the family from fans who just want to get an autograph or meet a family member. Since baddies can look harmless, they just have to keep everyone away.

brennie said...

All the nonsense about Steve is just hurtful to him and his family. We have gone overboard as a society. A mother cannot discipline her child in a store or a teacher hug a crying child without fear of getting reported as an abuser. Poor Steve is labeled as an adulter based on really flimsy information

lifeoriley said...

Re: Susan C.
--Of course there is a possibility that Jon was lying--they BOTH lie so much, it's hard to figure out what the truth is. The problem with that theory, though, is that Jon did not really need a lie to come up with a reason for wanting to divorce Kate. There's plenty of other reasons evident if you watch the show.
Assuming that Kate and Steve are not(or did not) having an affair-- it doesn't look good or show respect to your spouse if you are constantly travelling with the same person of the opposite sex, staying in the same hotels, and eating together, smiling and acting very comfortable and flirty with this person---and you are aware that your spouse is jealous of said person. Why not switch up security guards (as has been done recently)? Or, better yet, get a female security guard (and yes, they do exist)?
Did Kate take time off to just BE HOME with her family and work on the marriage last fall/winter? No, not really. She did more appearances, interviews and book signings. With Steve in tow.
Money came first---even though they were already making money and receiving tons of free stuff from the show.
Something caused Jon to finally snap and go out partying after 9 years of marriage--who knows why, really--only Jon and Kate really know what happened.
As for Steve returning, it's just the latest in the divorce volley. I've seen it happen with couples that I know--each one tries to spite the other. Also, I'll bet Steve negotiated a raise for coming back. (Note to Kate--he's not a potential boyfriend if he's getting paid--there's another term for that.)

OK, can we dip her in Pepto Bismal first? Then maybe she won't give the poor animals heartburn, and besides, it'd match her ever present cell phone! I can hear her now: "Hey Steve? Steee-vee, drop the purse and get over here! NOW!"

Nova

Deny it all you want said...

NO, I DON'T think Jon LIED to Kevin and Jodi about what he suspected with Kate and the bodyguard. WHY? Back then he had no reason to lie, especially to them. He had NO ONE to turn to, as far as family, Kate made sure of that, so the only other ones that he was close enough to was Kevin/Jodi. I cannot believe the denial I see here.

What's so hard to believe said...

And for the record. NO, I don't think that Carla's daughter in NC would have repeated ANYTING she saw OR heard in NC, that's why Kate brings her along everywhere.
These tagalongs have a certain misplaced loyalty to Kate. Maybe she'd tell her mother (Carla) but other then that, they kept their mouths shut.

SavetheSheeples said...

With regards to Kate's and the kids "messy" public appearances....Maybe Kate is purposely doing this to make everyone think they are suffering financially from the fallout of the revelations the past couple of months.

Either that, or they truly did lose their freebies and free Gymboree clothing for the kids. If Gymbo hasn't stopped the freebies - I really wish they would.

Just wait said...

When the REAL truth starts being written or spoken of about Kate, either by family, friends or production crew, we are all going to be speechless. I just feel it. I know this has all been much worse then anyone is letting on right now.

Fictions of Reality said...

I think Kate's OCD is about as real as her Christian beliefs. That woman is nothing more than a collection of marketable lies.
Her kids are no more than commoditites and show-props to her.
Jon has decided to re-visit his youth. He claims to think about the kids every ten min., but when he is with them he spends all his time riding his toys and talking on his phone, away from them.
Even if the show ends they will keep using these kids like surf-boards. For Jon and Kate it's all about catching the next wave while riding their kids.

Sounds like something Kate would do.

Jodi did say that Jon said he had to empty his something money account to get by? Anyone remember that line?
Wonder how true that was too

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

IMHO, people lie to themselves all the time about things they see. They want to believe things are a certain way, they are even willing to fight to say that they are ok even when they know deep down inside they are not. Believing in and buying into a lie are much easier than dealing with the truth sometimes and much more comfortable for some. They don't have to deal with the fact that they are encouraging child exploitation at this point by continuing to watch the show.

I am extremely disgusted with the ones mentioned above, Jon & K8 and TLC this morning. (more than normal) I cut Jon some slack at times but that is beginning to run dry, especially after seeing those sad little faces in the pics this morning. This really needs to stop. :(

The madness of it all! I know this has been said a thousand times, but what parent would subject their children to that chaos? And on a lesser (but still annoying) note: why is it that when Kate is 'escorting' her children she's either steering them by their heads (boy tups in many other photos) or dragging each child so that his/her arm is held way above his/her head?

Jon Gosselin's NYC Dinner With Mystery DateJon Gosselin's NYC Dinner With Mystery Date
Posted on Jul 19, 2009 @ 10:06AM

While his estranged wife Kate and their eight children decompressed from a photo shoot yesterday in New York City, Jon Gosselin continued the business of being a bachelor.

The 32-year-old star of Jon & Kate Plus 8, who only months ago was the picture of Pennsylvania family man, hit the town with a mystery blonde for dinner at the Upper East Side's Accademia di Vino.

The Italian joint boasts an extensive wine cellar and an intimate setting where Jon, refreshingly changing up his Ed Hardy uniform of late, took the lady, clad in a sleeveless white ruffled shirt.

Earlier that day, Gosselin was photographed leaving the shoot, said to be for TLC, separately from Kate and the kids.

Gosselin's one-on-one with the unidentified woman comes on the heels of a trip to France he took with girlfriend Hailey Glassman

Way to have respect for your kids Jon.

Exhausted said...

My wife and I take our girls into NYC quite often, but every time we are there, we guard them like hawks and never let go of their hands. If we had bodyguards or an entourage (gag), I wouldn't do anything differently because you can never expect other people to care for your kids the same way you do. To see Kate marching in front of those kids not one bit concerned for their safety is horrifying.

Debbie Rowe's a better mother than either of these two uncaring fools. When will they get it? They just do not care. They've done reverse selective reduction by disregarding all of them at this point. So sad.

Tiger Lily said...

I got it! There is no coffee in those endlessly photographed cups! Those cups must contain whatever alcohol Khate is currently drinking to help her cope with taking care of eight children all by herself.

Too hot for Summer said...

Who dressed the tup girls for the NYC trip? In the heat of the summer they are wearing yellow summer sleeveless sundresses and (get this) WHITE TIGHTS. It looks ridiculous. Tights in the summer?
How hot for the poor kids, while Kate is all dolled up and cool.

a rose is a rose said...

I just think with the state of the economy now and with everyone cutting back and doing with less, the Gosselins should be much less visable with the extravagance that they are exhibiting each and every day. All they do daily (as out of work parents) is spend money. Trips overseas, clothing, gas to travel everywhere, expensive jewelry, gifts for themselves, girlfriends/boyfriends, going to stores and shopping on a daily basis, nannies, cooks, helpers.
Its hard to watch as public that is struggling or careful to make ends meet. Its flaunting.

And that is how we got Kate (not Katie). Totally JMHO.
*********************************

"Katie" didn't completely morph into "Kate". Kate was there the whole time. From the home videos that were shown when Jon proposed on Christmas morning to their honeymoon at Disney, little Katie is an obnoxious, mooning, preening camera freak. People who seek out the attention of reality shows, who continually document their lives and post to You Tube or shop around "A Day in the Life" videos are completely narcissistic.

Both Jon and Kate have tasted this fleeting "reality" fame and are hooked. Every perk, picture in a tabloid, every request for an interview feeds the completely inaccurate self-image that what these two have is actually important and relevant!

When it's all done, Kate and Jon will be trying every trick to keep it going. They were manufactured to go down this path and now they are SLIDING down the hill. It will only get worse as they scratch and claw for one more People magazine interview or for a blurb in Star.

Time for Katie Irene and Jon to resume the lives of two selfish, immature asses. Show or no show, that's the way they would have turned out, regardless.

EXCLUSIVE: Jon Gosselin's Mystery Date Identified!EXCLUSIVE: Jon Gosselin's Mystery Date Identified!

Jon Gosselin had dinner with a mystery blonde in New York at the Upper East Side's Accademia di Vino on Saturday night and we
can't blame you if you wondered, has Jon moved on to yet another woman?

After all, first it was Deanna Hummell and then Hailey Glassman and now he turns up with an attractive blonde.

So who is she? First of all, calm down, Hailey, Jon's not cheating on YOU! The mystery woman is Kate Major, senior reporter for Star magazine.

Oooohh, Star magazine is gonna have the scoop in its next issue! Looks like Jon finally realized it's time to get his side of the story out there in a publication that won't hold back on the juicy details.

Yup, no publicists were along at the dinner to "control" what was said and put an "official" stamp on the story. And you know what that means - we're going to get the real deal from Jon's point of view in the next issue of Star. We hope and pray he tells us all about his new girlfriend, 22-year-old Hailey Glassman.

jonandkatewho? said...

If Hailey is as wild as they say she is, then Jon and she probably have a very open relationship where he can date whomever he wants and vice versa. I hope he is being safe, if you know what I mean. It would really suck for his kids if he came down with some nasty disease.

The chick and he in the pics don't look all cozy so maybe she is just a friend or business contact. Who knows? Jon Gosselin as playboy just doesn't have a ring to it...it makes me laugh, honestly. This guy hopefully will get this bullshit out of his system and grow into a mature man who can be a decent father to his kids.

It disappoints me that he evidently didn't spend much of his weekend with those children of his. They looked so sad in those pics. And i totally agree with the comment about Kate steering boys by the heads or lifting their little arms up above their heads. It's probably all that shrew can do not to pull their little arms off, she probably hates having them in tow that much. Poor babies.

I'm so sick of these two and their fifteen thousand minutes of fame. I want them to disappear.

I would bet TLC is having to work overtime to get any usable footage where these kids are not acting totally miserable these days. I hope they cancel the damn show, but something tells me there might be a market for this misery, which doesn't say a lot for our civilization, does it?

I got it! There is no coffee in those endlessly photographed cups! Those cups must contain whatever alcohol Khate is currently drinking to help her cope with taking care of eight children all by herself.

-----

I totally agree with you! My mother was an alcoholic, and her booze was always in a coffee mug until about 4:30pm. Khate is also starting to look like she's had a bit too much to drink -- she looks a lot older than she did a few months ago.

Too hot for Summer said...
Who dressed the tup girls for the NYC trip? In the heat of the summer they are wearing yellow summer sleeveless sundresses and (get this) WHITE TIGHTS. It looks ridiculous. Tights in the summer?
How hot for the poor kids, while Kate is all dolled up and cool.

-----
I just looked at those pix. UGH! What a grim little procession those children make. I can't believe Jon and Kate can't SEE how much those kids are hurting.

Also, there's one picture of Kate with Aaden and one of the girls -- she has her arms bent so that their poor little arms are straight up in the air. Clearly a control move on her part.

Do you suppose that Kate has to control everything around her because she herself is so out of control? Sort of like -- well, if I can't control myself, at least I can control everyone else. Just a thought -

Tups are now over 5 years old. Still with the sippy cups and bibs.


Notice in the next picture they are in identical outfits, meaning they were filming that day. No stains, production continuity.

But by 5, they should be able to manage a grape, a cracker and a slice of turkey on a paper plate and a straw-sipping cup without spilling or messing up too much.

For those that are saying because mady and cars went home it was because the kissing story was true I want to just throw a few random thoughts out there.

Not taking up for Kate. I think she did chest

----------

LOL! (with you, not AT you -- no disrespect whatsoever intended) I just think that is the funniest freudian slip I've ever seen. Kate certainly did "chest" -- in fact, she "chests" in every single picture lately.

Sorry, but I couldn't help it.

Wierdness said...

Totally weird --
I wanted to see if I could find out any more about Kate's family. Once on Wikipedia I had read about how the grandparents were estranged from Kate and Jon (no idea how much detail -- it was a long time ago). I tried to pull that up again this morning and IT WAS NOT THERE. There was nothing about Kate's family at all. Nothing. Nada. Nichts.
Do postings there expire or did someone buy them off or delete it or something?

Kannie said...

This insanity will end once TLC realises it cannot make another buck off these expolited kids. Advertisers are the money source. They hold the key to the future of this show. It's time for another email blitz of the advertisers. The message: stop advertising on TLC-J&K8 or thousands of us will stop using your product or service.

I think that Kate was pretty normal at one point. I think she loved the twins and took care of them like a normal mom. She might have had her quirks and her personality flaws (anyone here doesn't?) But, I think the Kate we see today is a progression. It started with wanting multiples (not just one more) and never stopped from conception of 7 until now. She then got attention, then she got to quit working, then she had help, then she had people she could boss around, then she got a TV show, then her TV show became popular, then she kinda wrote a book (as much as any other "star" writes their books), then she became a best selling author (vomit a little), then she had people waiting hours to see her, then women are saying ridiculously ridiculous, then women are copying her hair style, then 10 million people watch her show..

And that is how we got Kate (not Katie). Totally JMHO.

--------------------------
This is REALLY good! A very, very accurate description (IMO) of Kate. It's a shame that the TLC bosses do not see how Kate has deteriorated and how what TLC first promoted is no longer the case. Would TLC EVER have begun a show with a Kate as she is today? I doubt it. So why are they continuing with this farce now? Why are these people "show-worthy"?

...why is it that when Kate is 'escorting' her children she's either steering them by their heads (boy tups in many other photos) or dragging each child so that his/her arm is held way above his/her head?
------------
You know what I think? I think it is so that she can show off her arm muscles. I'm sure she thinks she is hot baloney since she's been working out, and holding her arms half bent like that is a way to show her "toned" muscles. Puke!

Yep, white tights on the girls. No matter that the NYC streets are probably hot enough to fry eggs. What Kate wants Kate gets.

The kids all look so forlorn and the boys especially looked checked out. Or is it just me?

Did anyone else realize that the not-a-nanny is definitely back from vacation? The little girls definitely have had their hair combed. I sure wish Mady and Cara could get some new clothes. These little striped dresses are looking worn and just a little too babyish for girls their age. They seem to wear them almost as often as Cara's black shorts.

I doubt Steve and Kate are having an affair for one simple reason: why would ANYONE want to be in a relationship with that obnoxious cow of a woman? She's greedy, arrogant, bitchy, self-righteous and cruel to her children. Not to mention the dumb haircut, square butt, and deformed belly. Kate is as desireable as a root canal without anesthesia.

On the run again said...

I saw the same thing posted on another website, but refused to believe it. Kate is in the process of purchasing a one million dollar condo in NYC at the Essex House(on the south entrance to Central Park)
and only 10 blocks from where Jon's condo is. She said that free things are much easier for her to aquire in NY, for the kids because she's "one her own now."
Also, they confirmed by a close source that Kate does have a condo in Reading Pa.,not far from the house so she can now spend her time away from the kids in her own place. So, that's why she was packing the kitchen sink in her suitcase. Makes sense now.
Would the two of those "NUTS" please SLOW DOWN! What are they doing to those children.

Some very cringe worthy photos of Kate and Jon in NYC..Kate is in full diva mode with a wave of her hand and Jon with a 'are you taking my photo AGAIN' look on his face..come on Jon..you LOVE it! You should smile more often Jon! You should be thrilled your kids have provided such a cushy lifestyle for you when you have done absolutely nothing to deserve it!

LaurieP said...

Call me crazy but when my son was the tups age and I was walking with him I always held his hand with my arm as low as it would go to make it more comfortable for him. Khate has her arms bent stretching the kids arms up over their heads. What a gal! Always thinking of those kids.

G said...

I think that the little girls were changed from yellow sundresses and white sandals to tights and black patent shoes for the photo shoot. They are wearing little blue shifts that will probably be replaced by too warm winter outfits when they get in front of the camera. So this is to save time--it's too hot to fully dress them in winter clothes ahead of time, and there's not enough time to completely dress them at the photo studio.

reasonable said...

Regarding the tights - it hasn't been THAT super hot in NY so I'm sure the girls didn't suffer, and perhaps they were planning to replace the sundresses with more fall-like clothing for the photo shoot, and it was easier to get the shoes and tights on ahead of time. No big deal.

Personally, I suspect that the bodyguards are hired by TLC to keep Kate calm and under control.

If she has a condo in Reading, then why does she pack such a big suitcase(s) each time she "leaves?" One-time transfer of some belongings? Otherwise, it doesn't make sense; just keep some stuff at "your" condo! Hmmmm

It's a HUGE DEAL! Why are those kids being put to work to shill the show so their sociopathic sorry excuses for parents, Figure 8 and TLC get rich while they are likely to get a red cent from this stolen childhood. Also even if NYC wasn't hot enough to fry eggs on the sidewalk that day it still I bet was hot enough to make being put in tights suck. Even if they were going to wear some winter clothing on the shoot why not anklets with the patent leather shoes? God, I'd hate to be any of those kids what a sucky crappy existence they have. The only time they are freed from that prison of a home is to film or help mommy look like she gives a crap about them and drags them to the PO Box to collect her love offerings and other ill gotten gains.

If I'm the Cake Boss, I'd tell them to shove it. They went to Ace of Cakes over him.

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

I bet TLC tried to get Kate on the show and the Cake Boss told them to get lost. That's why they went to the Food Network's "Ace". Who in their right mind wants to be associated with the Gosselins? (case in point Hailey Glassman)

The magic ingredient that led to the success of J&K8 - family values - is gone and nothing can bring it back. Cake Boss is a feel good 'family values' show (Italian Catholic extended family). So is Little People Big World and The Little Couple and that Duggar show. It's the same format that was originally used to market J&K8 to the viewing public. That format doesn't fit the 'new' Gosselins. Jon and Kate have destroyed their family unit. (The format is also being used to market a new TLC show about a group of tough looking Broward County women cops. They're being portrayed as kick ass gals at work and devoted moms at home)

What a disappointment it is that Duff Goldman and the Charm City Cakes crew agreed to participate in the exploitation of the Gosselin children. Shame on them.

GWOPers......it's time to start making preliminary plans for your "Goodbye Jon & Kate" parties!! The end is near.
***************

I might be wrong, but didn't Cake Boss come out this summer around the same time that season 5 of J+K premiered? So that would mean that when they filmed the Ace of Cakes episode there might not have been a Cake Boss tv show to use (either it wasn't filming at the time or maybe TLC wasn't sure it would be a hit so they used a show that already was to draw in viewers?)
Also, Emeril is a Food Network star and he was also on J+K this season, so maybe TLC and Food network are connected in some way, like how Discovery and TLC are I believe.

Katedrivesmenuts said...

I hate those pictures of Kate dragging the kids around with their arms up high. In all these pictures she is either walking alone like she is the Queen of Sheba directing her entourage or else staring straight ahead and dragging a tup along without a care for their comfort.

Compare this picture of Kate with 2 of the tups:
http://gosselins.sosugary.com/displayimage.php?album=102&pos=1

To this one of the Not-a-Nanny with 4 of the tups:
http://gosselins.sosugary.com/displayimage.php?album=102&pos=2

How can the Not-a-Nanny hold four hands at once and have the children look comfortable when Kate can't do it for two?

So many little details to pick on and not enough hours in the day....-

Did anyone see the e-mail sent from Hailey's fat farm ex-roommates? It was sent from them to a famous blogger who specializes in celebrity dirt. Boy, oh, boy the past can truly come back to haunt you.But it seems like it to me that this girl has no scruples or class.Wrap her up in this whole family fiasco and the train wreck that just won't end lumbers on.

DaisysMommy said...

Although I despise Kate and hate saying anything to defend even the most minor action of hers, I have to say something about the girl tups wearing white tights in NY. I live in NY and it has been a very cold summer!! It was about 80 today sure (a warmer day compared to the past few weeks), but very windy. I wore jeans and a long sleeve shirt out and was a little chilly (although it can be 70 and I'll be freezing, so maybe its just me) Tights are pretty breathable generally (its not like they were wool or anything) so I don't think its that huge of a deal.
BUT I do think its awful that they were taking pictures for what, 4 hours someone said? Great summer vacation for the kids. *gag me*

PATHETIC said...

Would be very disturbing to see how many of the Gosselin children have sore and bruised wrists from being pulled around by their arms like RAG DOLLS as they are dragged from NY destination to another! Seriosuly, the Gosselin children are little HUMAN beings not LUGGAGE to be dragged and pulled from one destination to another!

Get these OFF said...

Reasonable...Its JULY. Its HOT all over. It was a silly gesture on the part of Kate. Lets not try to justify her irrational behavior.
It looks ridiculous. Its still summer and too hot for anyone to wear tights anywhere.

fidosmommy said...

I can see it now...within a few weeks, Kate will be bending over to hold the hands of her children
in a normal position when on public strolls.

And switching out her high heels for flat soled shoes to bring her
2" closer to her children's level.

Kate, or somebody working for Kate,
reads these blogs, right? Of course it's true! Just watch.

fidosmommy said...

Oh, and how long would it really take for each 5 year old girl to put on her own tights and shoes? Shouldn't they be able to do that by themselves by now? Especially with 3 adults there to supervise.

Do these children do anything for themselves yet?

OH Mom said...

I'm not defending Jon, and don't agree with what he's doing, but I think he's been so abused and under the thumb of kHate for so long, he's really searching right now.

While she has this giant publishing and marketing machine behind her - he has nothing.

He desperately needs a GOOD publicist to guide him through all these unchartered waters (as he obviously is not saavy enough to make these sorts of decisions on his own.)

He STILL needs to realize the show is a travesty in child exploitation - but at the same time - I saw one of the tabloid film crews (TMZ -- Radar?) interviewing him at the airport and he just seemed so casual - and nice -- as usual.

He talked to them - said he understood they had a job to do -- and even tried to be cordial answering their questions.

He's definitely not the calculating, evil, vile person KHate is - just pretty clueless and making really bad decisions.

I'm going to throw him under the bus just yet -- he hasn't wanted to do the show for a VERY long time and seems willing to make his own money.

He DID tell the crew he is under contract for 34 more shows -- 34!!!!!!!!!

I just cannot even imagine what the heck TLC is filming -- they are the most evil of all! :'(

jelato said...

The comment about Kate not buying milk unless it is on sale. Milk doesnt go on sale in Pennsylvania. The price of milk is very regulated. It might vary by a few cents between stores, but there is never a "sale". I think even a convenience store the milk is overpriced.

I'm glad someone posted these pictures:


http://gosselins.sosugary.com/displayimage.php?album=102&pos=1

I wish they would be posted all over the internet -- so people could really see the SH*T these kids have to put up with.

The papparazzi are nothing..... nothing compared to that disgusting giant film crew and all those grown adults taking advantage of those kids -- i mean it is animalistic -- to see all those cameras, umbrellas, big pieces of cardboard or whatever the heck that is, sound people, production people -- it is absolutely SICKENING!!!!

I cannot for the life of me understand why there aren't laws to protect this kind of inhumane treatment -- those kids are being treated WORSE than zoo animals -- because at least zoo animals don't have all this crap shoved in their faces -- people, cameras, equipment and don't have to be forced to go places they have no idea where they are.

I hope an end to this horrific exploitation comes to an end.... SOON!!

Aunt Chris said...

I get the lumpy boob look - Kate is looking for some free stuff from Victoria's Secret. Steve will be happy for that when he gets back. Then she could also show off some new drawers when she's in the front yard in the baby doll dresses.

Jon's NYC pictures of him roaming the town by himself look just as set up as if it was a legitmate photo shoot. The picture of him sitting on the rock is hysterical!

And by the way, if I was the doc that gave him the hair transplant I'd call him back in for a re-do. Every shot of the back of his head shows that big old bald spot!

PJ said...

Not a big Kate fan but I have shepherded little kids through the streets of NYC. I can understand the way she is holding their arms, the sidewalks are crwoded and it is frightening to think of a child darting into the street.

Aunt Chris said...

The sidewalks are not crowded when you have 3-5 people running interferrence for you and you can see plenty of pictures of her like that wherever they are.

And, it's not HOT everywhere just because it's July. Here in upstate NY, it's been a good 6-8 degrees below normal for July, staying in the 70s (mostly lower 70s) for the month. It's been very pleasant and I am not complaining at all.

allyp said...

How could anyone say that Jon wants to put an end to the publicity train? He was photographed with a reporter from Star Magazine! He needs a better PR person, because many people are starting to sympathize with Kate.

imaamy said...

In San Diego we've been having very hot weather. I cringed when I saw those tights. Anyway, I'm glad it isn't broiling all over this summer. I was wondering who that woman was with Jon. Star reporter, why?

'Shepherding' children as a means to guide them in to the direction you want them to go is one thing, pulling a child by the wrist/arm, as a means to drag them in a hurried manner to a destination is quite another. By looking at the NY photos, the only crowd surrounding Kate and the Gosselin children are comprised of their 'own' people, ie assistants, body gaurds, babysitters, photographers and the like. If a Gosselin child were to 'dart in to the street', then the designated Gosselin body gaurd(s) werent doing his/her job. I totally get the parental instinct to 'shepherd' a child, what I dont agree with is the necessity to pull a child by the arm/wrist from one destination to another when there are more then enough 'eyes and ears' present to account for and manage the child's safe arrival.

OK, keeping them from darting out into the street is a good thing. I'm all for that. But it seems to me that you would have better control of a child's steps if his/her arm were in a less awkward position. There is NO need for Kate to be holding arms in that
position. She should wear flatter shoes and hold her own hands down
so they can have their elbows bent at a joint-friendly level.

I say this is a "HERE COME THE GOSSELINS" showcase so everyone will see Kate because she's got these kids in these weird contortions, dragging them along beside her at breakneck speed. It certainly is an attention getter, wouldn't you say? These are the grabs angry parents use to take their children to their punishment, not for a walk down the streets of NY to do a "happy" family picture shoot.

As someone correctly pointed out above, the other child-tenders are able to have comfortable children in tow. Yes, they are shorter than Kate, but Kate adds 2 inches to her height with those shoes she chose to wear, and her arms are in a Kate-comfortable position, neglecting the fact that her kids are going to have bursitis at the age of 12.

Need sandals not tights said...

Lets not split hairs. Its July. They were in NY, there is NO justification for tights on a child that they'd normally wear in the fall and winter. Sorry.

*********

I think Kate's the same as always, but that TLC had no choice but to deal with her to get to the kids. Let's face it, twins and tups in one family are very hard to come by! (Well, until this horrible show convinced people like Suleman that they should become baby factories to get fame and fortune).

She's so awful that it's hard to believe they'd ever get started with someone like Kate, but those who knew her say she's always been a complete bitch!

Jodi's sister says that the Kate we see now is STILL not as bad as Kate has always been! Check her blog! Remember,the production crew had to film 8 hours to get 15 minutes of usable footage. (Makes you wonder just how many hours those poor kids have had to work, doesn't it?) She says thatKate has always been WORSE than what we see now: they can't show the real, abusive, ugly, raging Kate that only family, former friends, and confidentiality-agreement-bound hired help and production crew know about.

How scary is that? TLC knew all along how she is.

Someone told me the other day that her friend has complained about Kate for YEARS, having known her in the early days. Apparently, Kate was just as bitchy, ungrateful, and demanding when she was crying poverty. She has a real air of entitlement, despite the fact that she's nothing special.

She's really narcissistic--more on that later...

NO milk for her said...

Kate KNOWS milk doesn't go on sale, that's why she said it. She doesn't buy milk for the kids because she won't put the money out for a gallon that they'd all go through in a day. Thus the Juicy Juice all the time that she gets for free.

TUNDRA said...

Finally, Jon's side of the story is coming out and frankly, it sounds to me like Ms. Woe Is Me Katie Irene has some serious explaining to do.

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

Source: People Magazine
http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20292198,00.html

When Hailey Glassman arrived at her parents home in New City, N.Y., on May 4 for an early Mother's Day surprise, she had a surprise of her own: Jon Gosselin, star of Jon & Kate Plus 8, was staying there.

Why? Gosselin, 32, a family friend since Hailey's father, plastic surgeon Lawrence Glassman, performed Kate Gosselin's tummy tuck operation following the birth of her sextuplets, was trying to escape the tensions at the home he shared with Kate in Wernersville, Pa.

According to a source close to Jon Gosselin, "Jon was heartbroken, totally heartbroken. Kate told him to take a hike."

'Kate Was Done'

The source says Jon and Hailey, already acquaintances, began their romance only after Kate filed for divorce on June 20.

According to the source. although the public did not know it, Jon and Kate actually split up late last year: "She said she wanted her life. She said she was done. It came out of the blue."

Soon afterwards, Jon moved out of the couple's bedroom and slept elsewhere in the house – and started going out to clubs and bars.

HS said...

Finally, finally, maybe some of the true facts and not Kate's PR machine fiction will come out. Kate has never cared about the breakup of her marriage. All her tears were either put on for show or because Steve told her he wasn't coming back on schedule. She's always been a manipulative liar and always will be.

some should not be mothers said...

Holding a child by an arm instead of hand is aggressive in my book. Parents that have a long standing and loving connection to their children don't YANK. Parents that I see yanking,pulling and leashing ,haven't taught their children to think on their own. Children grow up being 'checked out' and not having to think much because they get used to someone always being there to lead them around like an animal.. And YES, those children looked 'checked out'. They seriously are screwed. How very sad that this is termed entertainment. I'd call it abuse. ANOTHER photo shoot? WHY? intervention someone, please.

Tuesday said...

Kelly, "If you have men that will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion... you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men..." I wouldn't trust Kate with any of our animals, I see the way she treats her children, husband and others.

Tammy said...

@ Kelly

No I don't think Kate like the dogs..they are not organic and are probably very 'icky' as far as she is concerned. The photos of her grooming the dogs were probably staged as is most of her life anyway. I fear that the dogs are kept in the crates most of the time when they are not needed for the Queen's photo ops.

Lets not split hairs. Its July. They were in NY, there is NO justification for tights on a child that they'd normally wear in the fall and winter. Sorry.

Yeah, but if its cooler, more spring like weather would you go out in a tank top and shorts just because its July? Or if its an unusually warm fall day do you still wear a sweater and jacket? No. Once again, its been chilly in the north east. Just because its 90 where you live doesn't mean its like that every where, its been an abnormally cool summer here in the great state of NY... not defending Kate, I can't stand her, but I think there are PLENTY of actual awful things to slam her for, and this really isn't one of them.

fidosmommy said...

The sextuplets are 5. Why can't they decide for themselves if they are going to wear tights or not that morning? If one girl decides to wear tights and 2 decide not to, that's 3 minutes dressing time.

Why do they have to be identical even on the way to a photo shoot?

I see that Katie's beloved Starbucks will be serving beer and wine, at least in one location for now. I wonder if that was on her "wish list"?

I saw speculation that she was using the Starbucks cups for alcoholic beverages, now she won't even have to bother camouflaging it! I predict a lot more trips to Starbucks...

I agree the children look terribly unhappy in those NYC pics. They look much more comfortable the way the nanny is holding their hands, but every single one of them looks like they've just endured one of Kate's rages, don't they?

They look like they're upset and pouting after MEAN mommy waged a big battle while getting them ready (i.e., either standing around giving orders to others about getting them ready or--if the cameras were rolling--trying to act like she knows how to take care of them by herself).

Yup, it's a barrel of laughs for those kids! I'm sure they LOVE having their clothes and hair fussed over, being dressed in uncomfortable tights, and being forced to pose for pictures for four hours. What little kid would prefer swimming and playing to THAT? Why, they're just living their "domestic life" the same way they would if they weren't on a show! Oh, well, that's not true...no show=no meeting in NYC=no photo shoot. Gee, Kate, I guess you'll hafta pay them!

BTW, good call whoever said Kate's trying to make her arms look good (at the expense of the children's shoulder sockets--OW!).

Her boobs look horrible! Learn how to dress, Kate! Didn't Dr. Glassman tell you how to find a good bra? Maybe you should call him for a refresher! (Oops, never mind. Hailey might answer!)

Even though Kate is quite the loseR, Jon is acting like a child...dressed in clothing meant for teens and young 20;s, dating women 10 years younger than him. He makes me want to vomit!

MAN UP, JON, and GET A REAL JOB, you loser!

Pass the barf bag, please!

...bear in mind that people are very drawn to twins dressed alike, so if you would like a quiet afternoon at the park, or a quick trip round town, dressing them alike is just asking herds of nosy people to come and investigate!

However it is vitally important that you give your twins a good sense of identity (although granted there are plenty of other ways of developing identity!), and one very simple way to do this is to dress your twins either differently or giving them a variation on a theme (a blue top for one and a green one for the other for instance) so it just helps people work out which twin is which.

Interesting info from twinsonline.org

Obviously Kate LOVES the attention the kids get when dressed alike.

The real issue is, however, do the kids like it?

And what damage is done to their personal psyche by NOT allowing them to dress independent of one another?

Sadly, these questions shall be answered by the children themselves in a few short years.

Photos of an apartment like Jon's:

RadarOnline.com has obtained these new photos of an apartment just like the one Jon Gosselin has leased in the posh Alexandria Building on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.


Light and airy with two bedrooms and two baths, the unit is costing Jon in the neighborhood of $4800 a month. For that he gets 24/7 security, a pool and spa – perfect for entertaining girlfriend Hailey Glassman.

RadarOnline.com was the first to break the news of Jon’s bachelor digs.

The Alexandria is now Jon’s home as he alternates parenting duties of his eight kids with estranged wife Kate Gosselin.

Something that has been bothering me. People are discussing the tups and tights. Do you think maybe they don't even own socks? When was the last time you seen any of them with a pair of socks? Most of the pictures of the children in the yard show them with out socks or shoes for that matter. If Kate is so worried about the children keeping clean what about their feet? They have to be blacker than hers. Some one mentioned the croc company going out of business. Is that why you hardly see them in shoes anymore? Perhaps they are hoping that some other company will supply the footware. And while we are at it, how many pairs of sunglasses does that woman own? They show her wearing a different pair in almost every picture and they are hundreds of dollars a pair. End of rant.

When are these people going to go away! Their 15 minutes of fame were over a long time ago!

I am in NY and it's been chilly most of this summer. No need for AC most days. I have not worn many skirts or sundresses because summer seems to have forgotten to visit here.

Tights are fine with weather like this. It's better than the footage of the kids out with no jackets in March. (trip to the Vet)
