July 25, Divorce, Tabloids, and other antics

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

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

Another parent living off her children but at least these ones will have something to show for having their lives being put on public display. Hope there is money being put away for the Gosselin kids.

Jon+ Kate + Kate +8 :( said...

oh.my.God!

radaronline has pics of Jon with Kate #2 (K2) in Long Island.

Something JUST occured to me tonight...what if Jon is acting like this so that he DOESN'T GET custody of the kids...!!! Maybe he doesn't WANT custody of them so that he is free to live a "singles life."

OMG can this get any weirder? I mean this is just a train wreck.

My heart is breaking for the kids!

Jon, remember the song

"Once Bitten, Twice Shy"??

It may serve you well to remember that. S-L-O-W D-O-W-N with the ladies!!

From the sound of things, Jon is sampling a smorgasboard of female delights these days as Kate is learning how much Jon really did when he was there with the family (putting up tents, DRIVING everywhere, even on four-lane roads!, GRILLING, etc.)

I wonder how long it will take these two to remember that they have EIGHT KIDS who need more than tents and trips and concerts to be really happy.

I wonder...Have they EVER known the joy of seeing their parents as LOVING, CARING, WARM individuals who value them as their very own miracles?

Have the children EVER gotten the kind of attention they get from the cameramen and the people who come to build Crooked Houses for them or who put up solar panels or who build motorcycles for their parents?

Sadly, I think the answer to that is NO.

Just wondering who will be Jon's Flavor-of-the-Week THIS WEEK, and wondering what Kate will do THIS week to upstage her kids once again.

Cara always had long fingernails, and LIKED them. Remember when she started piano lessons? She had a fit about having her nails cut off. Pleasepleaseplease let's focus on more important things.

hCl said...

I am so tired of seeing Jon and Kate all over the place. ENOUGH already!!

MelissaLG said...

So, I assume it will Jon's week with the children at some point?

Where does Kate stay when she is not with the children? Anyone know?

And NO, I have no idea why I care. I guess I am just tired of constant Kate photo ops --- eerr I mean, errands and family outings.

She got a haircut BTW. And here I thought the hats meant that she was growing her hair out, or at the very least, ceasing the passe chunky highlights. But no. It's shorter and more dated than ever. And my goodness, there are other stores besides Ann Taylor Loft. Geesh Kate, expand your horizons.

Again, why I care is a mystery to me. lol

With all of Jon's dating escapades making the tabloid rounds, I am wondering where Kevin and Jodi is during all of this, and what they are thinking.

When they were making the interview rounds in May (or was it June? I forget), they were kinda pro-Jon and tried to paint him as the lesser of two evils.

But he (Jon) is clearly making an ass of himself and is proving to be selfish, irresponsible, and has a knack for picking real "winners" to date.

What is Jon trying to do? I have a hunch that he WANTS to lose custody of the kids. Why else would he be dating people with shady pasts. If he was serious about finding someone to settle down with and have a serious relationship with, he would be more selective and find someone who isn't a party mongering 20-something that likes to smoke dope and play with guns.

And now, this whole fiasco with Kate #2 is a confusing mess. Why on earth would this woman, who (as far as we know) only met Jon once and then suddenly resigns from her job because of a "conflict of interest"? Something seriously fishy is going on with these two, and it seems no one can get their stories straight. And how Michael Lohan fits into all this is totally beyond me.

With all this going on, all I can think about is how the kids are coping with all of this, and what is life *really* like at their home when Kate is with them, and when Jon is with them. Jon or Kate doesn't really seem to care about their emotional well being. I know Mady and Cara are in counseling now, and I sincerely hope they will benefit from it.

But if they truly wanted to put their kids first, they would put a stop to all this BS and kick TLC to the curb.

It is now being reported that Jon is working on a new reality show.
Those poor kids.

God bless Joel McHale of The Soup for bringing some humor to the otherwise very sad family drama surrounding the Gosselins. My two favorite comments so far:

Kate Gosselin's latest book project, a cookbook, has been temporarily shelved. The book was originally entitled, "Love Is In The Mix". When the book is released, the new title will be, "If You're So Hungry, Why Don't You Get Your 23-Year-Old Girlfriend To Microwave You A Burrito".

Jon Gosselin has announced that he is in talks to release a line of children's clothing with the Ed Hardy designer. The line will be called "Oshkosh Ba-Douche".

LOL! Too Funny! Jon really is turning out to be a real douche. When you lose in a game of "Who Would You Rather..." to Spencer Pratt, how much of a tool have you become? To quote Lauren Conrad of The Hills - another scripted reality show - Jon is "a sucky person"!

whiteam said...

I read this week's article in US magazine and was surprised to read about the photo shoot last week in NYC. It was called a day of disarray in the magazine. Here are the details:

They woke at sunrise and rode via a private shuttle bus to Essex House in Manhattan. There was a rest stop but "Kate went in to get herself a Starbucks coffee and didn't ask if anyone else wanted something", according to an eyewitness.

They arrived at the hotel at noon to change clothes. According to hotel staff Kate was "smiling and happy, then yelling and almost crying". The kids were "screaming, asking nonstop questions and crying".

They left the hotel and arrived at Citystage studios at 3 p.m. for the TLC photo shoot. During the shoot, "Jon and Kate acted like a typical divorced couple" and the "kids seemed visibly upset." The only time Cara and Mady seemed to have fun was when they walk Rocky, the pet dog of Little Couple stars.

The shoot ended at 9 p.m. at which point they said goodbye to Jon and got back on the shuttle for the ride home. It says the kids looked visibly lethargic and moody as they got back on the bus. One of the tups burst into tears and Kate ignored her to talk to the not-a-nanny. The kids pressed their faces against the bus windows to say goodbye to Jon, he tapped on the glass and said "It's OK, I love you." Kate motioned for him to come onboard so he could say goodbye. One of the kids was crying.

How sad for those poor kids, why not stay the night at the hotel instead of riding back home again after such a long WORK day. Why schedule a shoot from 3-9 p.m. for 5 and 8 year old kids? I guess if TLC spent 6 hours getting photos that must mean the show isn't going anywhere for a while. How sad.

ColorMeConfused said...

Wow - big shock. First she didn't want to remove her ring "for the kids", now she has no problem with it.

This woman is unreal.

SavetheSheeples said...

The thought of Jon having ANOTHER show, when he was so vocal in the past about not wanting to do J&K+ anymore, makes me sick.

He would have been a good contestant on VH1's "Tool Academy". But then again he probably would have flunked out and still been just a tool.

This quote from the eonline article linked to above:

"Of course his main concern is his children"

Yeah, right.

Liz said...

You know Jon is acting like a real moron when he is making Kate look like the better parent. This guy needs to cut it out with all the dating. He is making a fool of himself. I feel really sorry when cara and Mady go back to school in September. Kids can be cruel. Maybe the parents of the year should think about that. Jon and Kate grow up and show some class.

If he doesn't want custody of the kids, it seems to me it would much simpler to not seek custody during the divorce proceeding.

SwingsandRoundabouts said...

Something doesn't seem right with Jon and Kate II. I suspect she has insinuated herself into his life to get the scoop and is planning to write a book or is planning to sell stories to Star Magazine on the side. Thus she "resigned" to throw anyone off the scent and Jon is too gullible or too thick to have the type of judgement he needs at this time of his life. I would be mighty wary if I were Jon. Just my own suspicious mind at work !!

I totally agree with you...she's either planning on selling stories or wants to be first in line to write his tell all book. She's got big dollar signs in her eyes.

I read this week's article in US magazine and was surprised to read about the photo shoot last week in NYC. It was called a day of disarray in the magazine. Here are the details:

Beginning at sunrise and ending at 9pm is an incredibly long WORK day for children ages 5 and 9. I fail to understand how such a rigorous and time consuming schedule as this photo shoot complies with the rules and regulations that govern child labor laws? I reference child labor laws because the presence and participation of the Gosselin children with respect to the photo shoot clearly extends beyond that of their 'typical' 1-2 hour a day a few days a week filming for the J & K + 8 reality tv show. I cant imagine ANY child, reality star or not, being obligated to participate in or perform a task, ie WORK from sunrise to 9pm without appropriate measures and representatives in place to monitor and protect the child's best interest.

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

Okay, justwondering, I've been reading your comments for many months now. You're thinking this entire thing is a sham, right? It's all an elaborate, hatched plot by TLC & J&K to put a new twist on the show, and who cares what the kids are going thru over it as they've always been "used" anyway, from the get-go? Or do you think they really did have an initial split and are now back together, but carrying out that former theme because it's got everybody buzzing and they're more famous than ever? I'm having a problem wrapping my mind around this kind of scheming. We've never seen Kate actually doing anything with Steve (on the romance side) and it sure looked like Hailey and Jon were embracing in the park, but what really do we know, right? Synopsize this for me again, okay? Your posts always have good insight and are written well. Let me have it. I'm starting to rage over these losers and they're not worth it.

I seemed to miss where this came from. In the recent days Kate has been seen around town so is she going off the 3 hours to NYC at night? I have no doubts she would...obviously her and Jon have no issues leaving the children with the nannies but she has been the one with the children for the better part of the last two weeks.

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

I never get this. Okay, so the boob job makes her get stared at, but they're not real, so what is the lure? I guess for her, or other women, it's a means to an end...for attention? I'm of the camp "don't look at me" because I'm a private, quiet person. Kate's the "look at me, LOOK AT ME" gal who apparently puts no value on privacy at all...but then, she's the same person who has a reality show and lets cameras into her home and homelife. I really shouldn't be pondering this at all.

Vanessa said...

Has she gone and lost her mind??!!(just jared pics)
WTF?? She's either drunk or on something! You know how you kind of lose some of your inhabitions when you've had a few? Why the hell is she floppin' those things around? Even the previews for the Aug 3rd new episode, she's rolling around on the floor of the tent, looks like some trashy chick on "Girls Gone Wild"

VB Mom of 2 Boys said...

Just saw the Just Jared pics. It looked like there was another kid (one with light hair). I wonder if someone was having a playdate with a friend or cousin or if it was just an extra child belonging to someone working on the show.

Not Again said...

Yep, not only is she falling out (in one pic she is even looking down her own dress at her own boobs) but AGAIN, look how grossly gross her dirty feet are. In full view again too. "Playing" & being such a "good Mom". GAG

msr14 said...

any idea on who the little blonde boy in all the pics is>?

Elsie said...

The justjared boob photos are so "Look at me!"...I can see flashing the paps, but watch out, little blond boy, for an education in female anatomy! Oh, my. And why does she have her chair and the kid's table in the landscape rocks for some of the pictures? All that land to be had under foot, and they are on the cement or rocks!

WHAT? said...

Oh, and the wedding ring is back on. I'm confused so the children must be really confused. Such crazy behavior. Something is seriously wrong with her. She will be an "old maid". Who could possibly want to be with her? So trashy & no class. She's craaaaaazy!

Wow, Kate Gosselin is flaunting her big, disgusting boobs for someone. Wonder who he/she is?

Mia said...

How pathetic really..a nice summer day spent yet again in the driveway..I guess the P-people get better shots of her cleavage that way? Have the kids ever been in the pool? How sad for them that they have been reduced to working actors who spend way too much time in the driveway..shame on you Kate, you are so transparent and pathetic!

Masayuki said...

The recent pictures of Kate show that she is on "mommy-duty" full-time...great, wonderful...at least someone is showing an interest in those kids...but I have to wonder...with all that land on their "1.1 million dollar estate", why does she always need to plonk the kids and their toys down in the driveway, right in the eyes of the media? Why not drag the kiddy picnic table over to some shady grass to play with Play-Doh?? Kate, you are not fooling anyone...in addition to wanting to get more shots of yourself in all the mags, you are trying your hardest to show the world you are a good mommy, just so you can win custody of the kids! Katie, once again we are seeing right through you. Nice try.

PJ said...

It is good seeing Cara rollarblade. I know she really likes doing that. And waiting for her father to come home to do anything athletic with her is probably not a good plan.

The blonde boy has been there a lot. I think he is the sun of the woman Kate was with when they were both wearing black dresses. Not sure if anyone ever figured out who that was.

She should NOT be dressed like that in front of her little children! What she wears when she's out with other adults is her own business, but dressing that way in front of her kids is gross. What child wants to know that much about his/her mother?

TUNDRA said...

Jon Gosselin really working the media for all its worth just in time to manipulate the ratings again for J&K+8. I'm sorry but I have lost all respect for the guy and will no longer take anything he says seriously. He and Kate 01 deserve each other. Kate even has her wedding ring back on according to this article. Who does that?

AlisonB said...

From People......According to Michael Lohan (estranged papa of troubled Lindsay) Jon is "fantastic and upbeat and said that he just wanted to concentrate on his kids and his career and his life," he said.

Career as what???????

Aunt Chris said...

Enough with the stupid babydoll dresses! I haven't even seen them in stores for quite awhile. She's just dying for those fakers to flop out! "oh dear, how did that happen?!" Since Playboy doesn't seem to be calling, that's the only way for her to get her kicks, I think.

Momof2 said...

msr14 said...

Maybe he's a new "character"...I remember when the Brady Bunch brought in OLIVER when the episodes were getting a little stale....LOL.

I have to say...as much as I dislike Kate...it's nice to see her playing with the kids.

Aunt Chris said...

And another thing... I've been wondering about the wedding ring. It's big and flashy and she loves it, which is fine if that's your style, but it makes me wonder if this fakey fakery has been going on since before the renewal of the vows and she just wanted a big ring. Wedding vows were a good way to cover up that greed. The least she should do is move it to her right hand. Oh, but then people wouldn't be under the (fake)impression that she is mourning her marriage.

SavetheSheeples said...

With all the property they have, Kate can't find a more private, inaccessible-to-the-paps spot to hang out and let the kids play without having their photos snapped and posted all over the net? I wonder how the parents of the unknown blonde boy feels about that.

I know Kate is an attention whore, but jeez.

And her dresses are fugly.

Techymum said...

Interesting - playdoh, no phone, no starbucks....

We wouldn't be playing things up to the paps would we????

grannyoftwo said...

well there certainly was enough boob shots. There was not much left to the imagination. Maybe Playboy will give her a call next for a photo shoot! So disgusting!
Why would you wear something like that out in your front yard, full well knowing your picture is going to be plastered all over within the day?

stopthemadness said...

I had to wonder what they thought would be accomplished by doing the look-back episode, other than to try and capture the usual Jon and Kate audience which failed. How does watching Kate back when she aws more or less humanoid help them now, if the point was to resurrect her image and have a more positive image of her in the public's eye and mind, that would have backfired (I didn't watch it, the episodes weren't that interesting when they first aired, never mind people sitting thru them like someone else's home movies). Seeing how she used to be and how she has increasingly become phonier and uglier acting, doesn't help her image at all, it points to the relentless conclusion that more visibility is worse, the longer this goes on, the worse she is, the worse to the kids, and I have to believe that most of America will tune out in disgust or guilt, watching that and knowing their viewing habits are part of it. That and the inevitable fact that these kids aren't as cute any more, too much was focused on them as "the babies" rather than 6 different people. They aren't babies now, with Maddie and Cara these fresh faced four year olds having their ten seconds in front of the camera, they too are jaded.Watching now just makes me feel guilty because I know if we don't stop watching TLC will not stop filming.
The limits of my comfort with this show came in a couple of flashes. Gumgate was certainly one of them, seeing Kate's ugly and abusive reaction to Colin getting a piece of gum on his sock and toy, and her threat to throw away his bear, shocked me, and the fact that TLC put that on for us to see gave an idea that hey - they like it when it gets ugly. They drill down into this. But before that, Kate smugly telling the camera how the babies, if they dared to leave their cribs after a two hour nap, before she came to get them, got a 45 minute time out. I don't think they were even two yet. ONE MINUTE PER AGE is the recoimmended time out for toddlers. Not 45 more minutes -lonely, no doubt thirsty - after an enforced nap. I was shocked with that and with the realization that no one there had any power to change that and no one was stepping in for the kids. Kate laughing and telling us that the worst thing Colin could think of to say to her was "you a boy" let some daylight in on the relative status and esteem of boys and men in that house. And the idea that it aws ALEXIS sleeping in the basement -
Most issues of abuse and control with kids this age center around the only things they've got any say in: sleeping, eating, and potty training. This family had issues around at least two of the Big Three. Making Joel sleep on the floor of the laundry room for vomitting when he was ill, something I would do to a dog albeit feeling some guilt, but NEVER to a child, really ended my interest in this family as such. There are major problems here that fake teeth whitening and hair plugs cannot resolve. Jon has made a difficult choice - to be there for his children as her slave and on her terms, or to bail out. He doesn't have the guts to do the right thing. We will now be treated as Kate as victim, if the tent scene is any indication it will ring very hollow.
Writing to TLC won't do anything, they probably count the letters and touch themselves. WRite to the sponsors, the advertisers, and write to magazines they read.

C'villeGa mom said...

Message to Kate: It is inappropiate to let your boops show while children are present. Your little boys and their friends do not need to see this!

PattyWithNoPity said...

In at least one of those Justjared pics it looks as if Katie is looking directly at the camera. When she isn't looking directly at her boobage..or bending over..Ooopsie look at me...Trust me Katie..we've seen 'em before.
Her ringless picture from yesterday was so staged; Cara obviously did NOT want to be in that picture and Katie had her hand outstretched to grasp Cara's in a totally un-natural position..making sure they got their shot.
I do not watch TLC at all so I haven't seen any promos for the show..I have always read radaronline, TMZ & justjared before they latched on to Katie! I can't imagine how the @?#! TLC expects people to believe she is doing these things "alone" when all the pictures of the truth are online and in the tabloids. It is insulting to me that TLC thinks people are that stupid.

gherkin said...

Kate DOES have her phone and coffee in the pics on Radar. Still falling out of her dress. She obviously has no bra on.

Also pics of Jon with a motley group of schlubby guys (including the Lohan dad) walking along the beach in the Hamptons.

PattyWithNoPity said...

Shoot I meant also to say..Hasn't Jon been gone like all week this week rather than splitting it up with Katie?
Also, she is sitting so far up in that landscaping she looks ridiculous..HOW STUPID DOES SHE THINK WE ARE...Katie, that back porch has a roof. Ya know; for SHADE.

Lara said...

Pics of Jon on Radaronline..How sad that the kids are playing in a driveway while Daddy is on the beach (looking very out of place) with his new entourage..will Jon ever be going home to spend time with his money makers?

just wondering said...

I don't know what to think anymore. But I believe that Jon and Kate are "in agreeance" on many things.

I think Kate has known about Hailey for a long time but wanted Jon to keep quiet for the show. It wouldn't surprise me in the least if J&K are working together to keep feuling the gossip thoughout the hiatus.

Last week's photo shoot fiasco. Jon and everyone else involved entered through the back doors. Why didn't Kate? She purposely dragged the kids through the gauntlet of photographers gathered out front. You certainly didn't see any snaps of Jon, the Little Couple, or anyone else.

Each of them wants their own show and the more money and publicity the better for the family in general (in their warped minds, anyway...)

The pressure to pull the kids out of the show has to be hurting the advertisers and I think part of the hiatus could have been used to shore up those accounts or to get new clients aboard. (Someone will have to make a list of any new sponsors and note any who may have dropped the show.)

I think Kate is royally pissed at Jon, but not over women. I think she has been over Jon for a long time. She does miss her favorite menial servant, though, and is probably furious that his summer flings may have cost her some future earings.

In short, I think they are playing this by the seat of their pants, and since news is instantaneous these days, they have made mistakes in judgement.

I don't believe either one of them wants full time custody of the kids, either. Unless, of course, it benefits them financially, shomehow.

I never though Kate had an affair with Steve because he knows her too well to fall for her. She may be having one in her head, and they may have hooked up in a moment, but I think Steve is too smart to ruin his family over her. If anything, I think Kate is a misandrist as she seems to not really care for men at all.

The only thing I know for certain is that Kate will look out for Kate. Everyone else is dispensable and disposable. But nothing will ever be her fault.

Pam said...

Oh my lord..looking at the main photo of Jon and Michael Lohan on JustJared has me LOL..Jon's intense 'Look at me, I am SOMEBODY' facial expression is just too priceless..this guy needs to get a grip because he is a complete joke..Lohan and Jon..fathers of the year!

KATE IS NASTY said...

Ohhh looky me. I have boobies.

GROW UP KATE....You look shameful...

YES SHE DID said...

To mom re Kate's "real" boobs:

Although it is not important in the scheme of things, I am only going to say this one more time. I posted a long time back when there was great to-do about whether Kate has had a boob job. YES SHE HAS! I and at least ten people I know have boob jobs. I'm on my third set, and had my first forty years ago. They can look great and natural AND THEY DO HANG LIKE THAT if it is a good surgery.

Just about every woman you see on TV and movies has also.

The only thing I said wrong last time was how much husbands enjoyed the results of the procedure, and that statement garnered some vitriol.

I do understand that the procedure is more popular and accepted in some areas than others, but here it is very normal for a girl to receive as a graduation gift from her parents. I know one girl who waited until after she had her second (and final) child, and then got some great big ones.

Kate or her doctor was smart in that she had implants that were not enormously different than her natural breasts, therefore everyone must ask the question "did she or didn't she."

At the time of the original tumult, there was also speculation about when she would have had time to recover from the surgery. You can go about your business in a few days. It's no big deal.

I agree with many of your comments about Kate's boobs hanging out.

What the hell is she thinking?

She is border-line SKANK.

Poor Kate. Having to play with the kids again. You know... One of the "mundane" things you used to gripe about.

I did notice that these are once again the approved photos. Is that guy living over the garage yet?

Think about it, Kate.. You could charge him rent...

itswhatyoudontsee said...

With all the property they have, Kate can't find a more private, inaccessible-to-the-paps spot to hang out and let the kids play without having their photos snapped and posted all over the net? I wonder how the parents of the unknown blonde boy feels about that.

I know Kate is an attention whore, but jeez.

And her dresses are fugly.


IMO, the parent of the little blonde boy has no problem allowing Kate to exploit/use HER child. For all we know, SHE could be the one taking the photo.

Days after he runs off to the Hamptons and allegedly holes up with some chick who has the hots for him Jon nows says "his heart is always with Hailey."

Good. I would love nothing more than for all this to be a bad dream. Unfortunately, it's not. This IS reality and Jon is definitly in need of true friendship and advice. Will he find it in time to help himself and his children? I truly hope so but ain't holding my breath.

First of all, can't stand Kate and feel awful for the kids. Secondly, has anyone noticed that Jon is now making a point of being photographed with Vitamin Water with the label positioned so that you can read it? Trolling for another deal a la Ed Hardy? Michael Lohan was doing the same thing with a Snapple bottle while walking on the beach with Jon. These two might do better if they walked around with bottles of Massengill

I haven't watched in months and frankly I find the everyday news we are getting and the pictures to be more entertaining than anything that has been in the can and filmed going back to May.
Why watch anymore? Just go online everyday to get the info. TLC shot themselves in the foot with this one. Talk about too much information!!!

Seriously, the man (Jon) is becoming a freak. It's gone BEYOND concerning, IMO. I am starting to feel a TEENSY bit of sympathy, or at least tolerance in comparison, for the Hate-Girl. And that in itself is concerning, ; that is how BAD this is getting

This is my first comment here. I read the other comments daily, some are very insightful, some are funny some are random. So I'd like to put my two cents in based on my own personal experience.

First to Jon. We've watched the show. All of America watched how your wife treated you. If she treated this way on television, god only knows what went on "behind closed doors". Everyone gets it. Ok, so coming from a divorced mother of two, let me say this. Unless AND until you have those hot little divorce papers in your hot little hand, you are STILL a married man and you absolutely need to practice some MAJOR discretion! See who you want, date, flirt, the whole nine yards but do show yourself and all of America that you still have some self respect and dignity. Go ahead and be "just Jon", we've seen him and he's not the guy that you are portraying right now.

To Kate. I'm not going to sit and say "you deserve it", I HAVE been cheated on. I am however going to say that you should be thankful for the ten years you had. I have never met another man who would tolerate that behavior, from anyone. You had a decent man, not a perfect man, but decent man, who loved you, was/is a really good dad. You absolutely abused him. So, in the future, be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it.

To J&K: unplug the t.v show, get yourselves and your children into counseling and do one of two things, fix your family or help your children get through what will be the most traumatic event in their lives.

Someone MUST be the hero...

goawayfools,

Your comment cracked me up! PRICELESS.

Doubtful It's True Intent said...

I have to say...as much as I dislike Kate...it's nice to see her playing with the kids. (From Momof2)
---------------------
Thing is, on the subject of the blurred line between what's real and what isn't for the kids, will this just be another thing the Gosselin children will look at, years down the line, and think: so was that a photo op for the paparazzi or somebody else whose attention you wanted, Mom; were you gathering documented proof for the divorce court of Mommyhood; or was it actually, truly to play with us (because, as a rule, you don't!)?

I'm reminded of someone I know of who found out years later that her favorite aunt was actually her mother and it made her feel like nothing she and her "aunt" had ever shared was legitimate.

Makes me surmise the Gosselin kids might get a similar sense of betrayal. They're going to just want to throw their past aside because it's meaningless. Probably will be the healthiest thing for them as they become of legal age when they can finally begin to live their life THEIR way (and, frankly, if they never owned a camera after the age of 18, I wouldn't blame them).

The only thing I know for certain is that Kate will look out for Kate. Everyone else is dispensable and disposable. But nothing will ever be her fault.

Correction.. She will admit fault if it will increase her income in some way. Can't wait to see her new book. You know.. The one where she advises people on how to bring their children through a devastatingly public divorce.

The details of J & K 's divorce will ultimately play out behind the closed doors of a family court room. However, I find the most disturbing aspect to the J & K Gosselin saga is the fact that J & K appear to be more concerned about how their actions post divorce as presented BY WAY OF the MEDIA, will ultimately work to their advantage in swaying the 'court of public opinion'. If J & K are so confident that they are the devoted parents and secure in their decisions made in and for the best interest of their children, they shouldnt need or rely so heavily on a CAMERA lens or reality show to prove themselves worthy. When all is said and done, the CHILDREN will be their ultimate JUDGE.

kate forgot she has a back yard? said...

If a picture is worth a thousand words, the fake picture of Kate pretending to be playing with her children in the front yard with play dough hearts on her takes the cake. She looks completely false, gritting her teeth, uncomfortable as heck, and posing for the cameras. Maybe TLC forgot to send her a script memo telling her that she had a back yard and privacy. She has to be the stupidest person on the planet. How she doesn't realize how foolish she looks in these pictures is beyond me, until I remember that she is a narcisstic fame whore who will stop at nothing.

Gimmie a break said...

Those pictures of Kate on Just Jared show how very sick Kate really is. First of all, it's all for show, second, it's such attention grabbing behavior. She knew very well that she didn't have a bra on (one pic shows her gawking at her own breasts) and she quite obviously did this to draw attention to herself. I have read numerous articles which state that there is a huge play area in the back that cannot be seen by paps or anyone else. You are one sick, classless witch spelled with a b, Katie Irene. You are not fooling anyone.

TUNDRA said...

Pssssst! What's in the cup Kate?

works_for_a_living said...

Miranda in MN,

Because, unless I missed something, in every picture with Kate M., he either had his left hand in his pocket or hidden. Just a thought.

Also, someone else on this thread mentioned that Kate G. put her wedding rings back on.

I wouldn't put anything past TLC and the way they try to put things past viewers and the public in general.

That's why in the world I would think that.

TUNDRA said...

Nice close up of Kate sucking on her water bottle. Note the cell phone in her lap. If I am not mistaken, this is the same day Kate was caught on camera spanking Leah setting off a firestorm of criticism raising questions about whether Kate spanked the little girl out of anger or "discipline".

Well, okay … I have been on Team Jon for a while now. I feel he is seriously suffering PTSD (post traumatic stress syndrom).

Kate put the man through every public humiliation possible.

People who have been criticized for the way they breathe, screamed at, hit, abused, accused, belitted, castigated, maligned, laughed at, reprimanded, physically and mentally attacked do tend to become “crazy.”

But now I hate the way Jon is acting. I hate that his little kids see him behaving like a rebelling teenager.

I hate what Jon has become and I blame Kate for ALL of it.

Jon, please, get a brain here. You aren’t making things look good for yourself.

Kate really doesn't even know HOW to play with her own kids. And she looks awful!

Kate is not a small person. Plus, the store bought boobies just make her look bigger. Those baby doll dresses were not designed for big old women.

KatieHolmesIsFreeAgain said...

I thought Jon was the better parent but I renege. Jon was probably late maturing and when he married Kate, he stunted his maturity. So all along, he was the immature although obedient husband, now he's the bad ass. Maybe he will be the NEW BACHELOR. Makes me want to barf. And what's with all these teenagers claiming he's cuter in person? He's not! He has bloated and he smokes. Eeek!

Summerlin said...

While I wouldn't call Kate old, I do have DDs as original equipment and those of us born with them usually know better than to try to stuff them in low cut baby doll dresses. Those dresses are cut for B cup sizes and there's going to be a problem on top or underneath and that's what Kate is running into. She needs to start wearing a supportive, well fitted bra, too, or she's going to find those things around her waist in a couple of years.

rockypriscilla said...

Here are a couple of quotes from this weeks Star Magazine...
Haley's friend, Al Fenza, reports that "Kate told Jon flat out, 'Take a hike.' She's in love with Steve and trying to turn things around to look like she's innocent. The truth will come out. She left Jon totally heartbroken." He says Kate never liked Hayley, but that she doesn't like anybody. The two of them never had a conversation. While recuperating from her tummy tuck, they all went for pizza and Jon played super dad. Jon then went out with Hayley after Kate was dropped off at the Glassman's. He says that after the surgery, Mrs. Glassman took care of Kate, even though Hayley was in the hospital with 105 degree fever. Hayley called and woke Kate up and she could hear Kate yelling in the background.

A network insider says the divorce has been fast-tracked to September and that TLC is getting tons of letters from people angry at Jon for dating Hayley. "Kate's livid because she feels like Hayley is ruining her show and her livelihood, and all she can think about is getting revenge."

I feel that, girl! As a G cup (and I weigh like 100 lbs. God only knows how this happened), I have had to learn how to dress for my body type. Just because little dresses look cute on some girls, they don't look cute on ALL girls. Kate, although in her 30's, has yet to learn this lesson. You'd think her stylist would tip her off. Then again, knowing her, she'd flip out if someone told her she can't dress like a 15-year-old Disney star with her body type.

hanovertomato said...

Anybody else dislike seeing non-Gosselin kiddos in "P-people" photos?

Its bad enough that the Gosselin kids have to live in the fishbowl, but what is up with other parents letting their children be photographed as well?

I'd be happy to let the kids come play here, but my kids would not be going to their house, or anywhere with the the Gosselins. It would make me sad, because it would effectively be punishing the kids for the sins of the parents, but NO way would I allow my kids out in public with them. Not even over to that house for a visit.. since J&K have proven they have no shame in turning their driveway into a "set". It just wierds me out.

Yet another price those poor kids will have to pay for their parents fame-whoring actions I guess. It's just so sad.

Calling justwondering! said...

to justwondering:

Wow. Okay. Wow. It's a lot to think about. Thanks for your viewpoint.

You said, "In short, I think they are playing this by the seat of their pants, and since news is instantaneous these days, they have made mistakes in judgment."

That sounds more like it.

Hmmm...where would TLC sit in this scenario...maybe they're just going with the flow of it, riding the same rollercoaster as the rest of us.

"I think she has been over Jon for a long time." Could be so. Wonder why, then, would she be "sneaking in and out of Jon's NYC digs at all hours" (this from a teaser posted by "abbra" as to true or false).

Seems the rumor mill is in overdrive. And we're all keeping the fires lit.

"I don't know what to think anymore. But I believe that Jon and Kate are 'in agreeance' on many things." No doubt true...and we may never know.

So, as always, it comes back to the eight Gosselin children and what can be done about their exploitation. It occurred to me, when Jon and Kate have had an opportunity to use the sofa interview to get a point across, I don't recall them ever trying to reassure a questioning public that the kids (individually) are well-set financially. A simple one-liner would do.

bowtiejess said...

I can see it now. The kids, home from the first day of school, "Mom! Mom, what's a whore?"
"Where did you hear such a thing!", Kate snaps.
"Little Suzie at school told me her mom says you bought new boops and now you are running around showing them off like a whore!"
I say this with snark, yes, but I am truly worried for I see a real possibility for this type of situation. Sadly, I fear it will be even worse than that. I am so sad for these children. Bullies, mean girls, older kids all have tons of ammunition at their disposal to hurt these children.
What is WRONG with these people!?!?

*********
I respectfully disagree. A simple one-liner wouldn't do it for me; Kate lies routinely without compunction, and she wouldn't hesitate to do so if it would get us off her back. I wouldn't believe it unless a neutral third party verified the accounts/amounts that the children have.

But...I doubt the children are getting any money, or they wouldn't be trying so hard to assert that they're not "working."

Becky Q in PA said...

Re: how many days each parent has been home with the children: maybe you guys have it all figured out, but I REALLY hate to think that Kate's forcing them to play on the driveway is paying off for her in any way. Are we sure Jon hasn't been there but not photographed some of the time? We're always complaining that Kate is showcasing the children for the paps, but now we're using pap pictures as "evidence." (I haven't researched what's gone on, so maybe you're right).

I also see Kate weaseling into his schedule with the children for the photo ops. Oh, she helped take them to the doctor, etc. Out of the goodness of her heart? I don't think so! (What heart?) I think she wants to make sure she's in the pap photos as well as on the show as often as they're filming. I can't believe Jon's letting her get away with it, but then he probably doesn't have much choice, or she'd be crying to the tabloids that he's rebuffing her efforts to be involved with the children. It's really disgusting, bc she couldn't care less about them except as her 8 little moneymakers, IMO.

Their days with just Jon are probably the only "vacation" days these kids will get all summer, and she's horning in on them. Ugh! Go away, you nasty shrew!

grannyoftwo said...

I am getting a little tired of Jon being made out to be suffering from a disorder due to Kate. I get really mad about people saying their dumb mistakes of life are caused by a "disorder" or "disease" such as alcohol etc. Jon and Kate have made their own decisions and own mistakes. They are adults, get over yourselves and take care of those children. Be a man Jon, forget the past and look to your children's future. Your decisions are not based on how Kate treated you for so many years. They are being based on selfish, desires on your own part. Same goes for Kate. UGH!

ManicNarcissism said...

I agree that the dresses do not flatter KI but they must not be meant for 15 year olds because they do not shop at ATL. Maybe just different shaped 30 year olds. I don't even think most 20s shop there. I'm 33 myself and love Ann Taylor.

Even if TLC made Jon wear his ring which doesn't make sense they already announced divorce, he wasn't being filmed with Kate 2.0 so he would have just taken it off right?

Kate with the hearts on her face is so for the cameras she makes me sick.

I'm still undecided about the whole Kate started this, broke jon's heart etc. Hopefully time will make it clear.

As far as the speculation that Kate is giving Jon money to act the fool - isn't Kate's money Jon's money? But I guess TLC could throw in extra. I don't believe this either.

Works_for_a_living said...

When I go to work (6 days next week), my kids also cling to me and don't want me to go. I tell them that Mommy and Daddy have to work (as in REAL jobs) so that they can have ALL the things they need and SOME of the things they want. I miss them terribly when I am gone from them and can't wait to be home with them again. As most good parents and grandparents do, I plan fun stuff for us to do (like the outside science project we are doing later today), read to them, snuggle them and well, just love them. Yes, my housekeeper didn't show today (darn, lol) and so I have to do my laundry and dishes and clean up the house this morning, but I am with them otherwise. I don't know how Kate OR Jon can call themselves parents. Even celebrities (at least most of them) care enough about their kids to integrate them into their lives and not just live off them. I am my girls' MOM, they are not my SLAVES. If I'm not mistaken, that barbaric way of life was outlawed years ago. SOMEONE HELP THESE KIDS!!!!!!

Interesting letter Candy Spelling wrote to TMZ meant for her daughter but also aimed at other reality stars here are some quotes:

"Back to other reality stars. My husband taught me that the plots have to be fresh and updated. The same old whining gets tired after a while."
"For all the reality show personalities, please remember that real life doesn't get edited to make things better or worse or get better ratings. You're responsible for what you do. Life isn't just a show. And your families can't just be props."

I haven't chosen sides in the Candy vs Tori dispute but I agree with her that life is not a reality show and meeting her granddaughter for the first time should not happen in front of TV cameras.

Kate/Jon are you listening?

Life cannot be edited for ratings.

Your children are going to blame you for ALL of this- tabloids, divorce, loss of extended family, embarrassment at school and in the rest of their life as their potty moments and meltdowns follow them as soon as their name is revealed. They will never have the opportunity to enter a relationship with a "blank slate".

You can never replace for fix the lost years of their childhood.

And Yes you are totally to blame for this.

Even with all the questionable choices Jon is making these days I am noticing something about him....he is loosing the beaten down, demoralized deameanor he has had since I started watching this nightmare. He should not be afraid of Katie Irene, ever.

Then, there's the questionable choices Katie Irene makes. No change here...same old nasty, not so bright, exhibitionist, narcissitic, screaming,scheming, cold hearted moron she just is and likely will alwasys be....

And in all of this are eight lost little children. Heartbreaking.

stopthemadness said...

They both will want custody of the kids, I don't think Jon will give up his share of custody in return for th efreedom to live in NYC. Remember, this pair of tw ats has no skill or talent on their own, the children are the mail ticket, whoever controls them controls the $$. So they will both be quite interested in maintaining a connection with the Brand.
As far as Kate's boobs real or false, they look real, too big and completely inappropriate in those little dresses - ugh - does her new boyfriend like young girls? why not just put on a sheerleadeer costume - but you don't go from flat to huge naturally. Maybe they hang like that because they are too big for her frame.
Why is it a certain class of woman always, given they can get the money, goes for the cosmetic surgery? SHe's a MOTHER, I'm getting sick of her and Jon's trying to out-midlife crisis each other. Jon is grotesque, and trying to act 21 when you're in your thirties is pathetic.
There are such better role models on TLC, Jen (Little Couple doctor and wife) lives here in Houston and is such a better role model for my kids,they both are successful and have overcome physical issues and social ones but behave lovingly and with respect to each other. Jon and Kate remind me more of the country people or trailer trash who suddenly come into money. The constant fakery about being Christians, too - this pair is the definition of "worldly" in the bad sense. They aren't sophisticated, they are ostentatious and money grubbing.

Mine Are Real said...

Saw the JJ pictures. Don't tell me this previously flat-chested woman (or nearly) doesn't now realize that she's wearing shirts and dresses cut so low that her newly acquired (bought and paid for by child labor) are hanging out because I just don't believe it. How many of us here wouldn't have a clue? Come on.

She is determined to show that no matter how trashy Jon is, doggone it, she's twice as trasy. Well done, Katie Irene.

They are both so bad that I'm wondering if they aren't in cahoots again...how could parents seriously act this way?

stopthemadness said...

I think Kate was in the yard doing plahdoh with the kids because TLC told her, the tabloid photos of you jerking your kids around and hitting them, of you husband with the bimbo of the week, etc., are killing us. We're getting letters every day to drop this show; people are starting to turn on you. You need to get some shots of you playing with the kids. Grit your teeth and do it.

She looks like such an azzhole though, with that STOOPID hair and those ridiculous dresses - what happened to the regular Kate people could relate to, in baggy shorts or jeans and a short sleeved top? No one goes out to play with the kids, looking like that. Her need to be in the public eye is such that she'd march down the street in the 4th of July parade (did they do that "tradition" this year??) naked waving a flag if she thought it would get her picture in the paper. She needs to get the message - you are famous for the KIDS and for being a MOM not for anything to do with YOU. Famous for being famous works for Paris Hilton but Katie Irene, not so much.

stopthemadness said...

Jon who wants to act 21 again (or 15 more like) surprises me with his dating of Hailey Glassman so openly and did he buy her a ring? Allowing the rumors of engagement without making a statement? How is that acting like you're 21? Thought he wanted to be free single and oh so cool with his bad boy earrings and his snow boarding. So what's with the full time girlfriend?

Can he actually be doing this because he is just that passive aggressive, he knows the only thing OCD fame whore Kate is focusing on and cares about is the SHOW and so he is trying to wreck it? What an awesome way to get back at her for the sh it she's made him go thru the past years, all the disrespect, the on camera humiliation, not just having to BE on camera but the constant lies and pretense since as we've discovered, it's not reality it's scripted - forcing him to go thru a fake wedding that confused the kids (was that why Mady was acting "ugly" and couldn't be in the cookie making? She'd figured it out and was acting out?) he now gets a chance for the shoe to be on the other foot, he gets to humiliate her with a younger cuter hot girl, and expose how fake the family is, and screw up her cash cow, and knowing his wife probably knows she'll out herself with her temper and control issues, she won't be able to help it, and people will figure out what a fake the show has been all this time. Either he's an evil genius, or just another tool doing what comes natural, now that the leash is off.

Kate is not a small person. Plus, the store bought boobies just make her look bigger. Those baby doll dresses were not designed for big old women.

Those dresses look absolutely ridiculous on her. She looks much heavier -- she's packed on a few pounds, and not from the weight of the new "girls." When she bought the boobies, I guess she figured why pay for them if you're not going to show them off. She never dressed like that BB (before boobies), but now in AB, it seems like "they" are flaunted everywhere -- right in the face. Literally. Have any of her friends contacted Stacey and Clinton to sit her down and show her what is age-appropriate for "the girls?" Oops...guess there's a problem there. Maybe she doesn't have friends. TLC should grab her and tell her that she's going to be featured on "What Not To Wear!"

No pics please! said...

Something that has been bothering me for a long time are the never ending papparazzi pics of the children. And all children for that matter. Are there ANY laws to prohibit this or to protect the kids? If I were to just randomly start taking pics of kids in a park, don't you think people would get angered and call the police? It's very creepy. But because these people get paid, it's ok? When actually, it's even more creepy.

As a parent, I would be outraged by all these pictures of my kids showing up. Don't stalking laws or rights to privacy come into play at ALL?

Kannie said...

Could Jon's association with Kate 2.0 be a legal ploy, a sneaky maneuver to help Jon avoid getting the crap beaten out of him in divorce court? If he doesn't get his act together, Kate's lawyers are going to have a field day if/when the case is heard.

Looks to me like Kate M is Jon's 'beard', someone who has been brought into the picture because she appears (so far) to be (slightly) more reputable than stoner-party girl-college dropout Hailey Glassman.

No smart attractive woman in her right mind would date Jon, so his choice is limited. Comparing Hailey and Kate M, you'd have to agree Kate M appears to be the better behaved of the two based on what we know about them.

No toys for you said...

What I always found a little strange is that the little girls are never seen with a doll or doll carriage outside, no doll furniture or girlie toys, even in the old house. The boys are never seen with action figures either, no GI Joe, or the popular figures the boys that age love to play with today. No wonder they like the cardboard boxes.

marcie said...

One reason we rarely saw toys on the program is that many toys are easily identifiable by brand - for example Barbie by Mattel. That's why you sometimes see toys blurred out in kid's rooms on decorating shows. Unless the network is involved in sponsorship with a toy company, they probably won't or can't film them.

stopthemadness said...

Looking back to the posts from March it is interesting to see how some people still thought they loved each other and would work out their marriage problems, mainly because the Hawaii trip and Kate's constant refrain during that episode that this was to reassure the children that they would be together FOREVER. All lies of course, Kate is a pathological liar and I think she believes that she can control the image people have, she doesn't consider it lying, she considers it tv, it's a show, so it does'nt ahve to be "real."

I noticed on the trailer for the next episode, the tent thing, although she has lost the fake orange tan thank god, she looks more like an ugly muppet. There is a certain look she gets, opening her eyes wide, and talking very matter of factly with this little smile, that telegraphs "I'm lying to try to look good to people." I'm pretty sure she thinks her fans, having met so many of them at the book signing, are stupid. Can't really argue with that.

And even in the 30 second trailer, her left hand with huge wedding ring is prominently featured. So we're getting Kate, the one who is the struggling mom, left by her philandering husband, but still committed to her marriage, and now bravely setting up tents and grilling and doing dad stuff cos that's what kind of mom she is, she can do it!! Not.

HORSE SH*T.

TLC has no shame. IT's so ironic this is called The Learning Channel. Learning to identify a con artist maybe.

PA Mom said...

Just days after the tabloids posted pictures of Kate without her wedding ring, it is back on. If you take a look at some of the pictures of Kate in the green dress playing with Play-Doh, the ring is quite evident!!!

ForeverHopeful said...

Just finished reading this complete thread and have to say that I have learned a lot!

Thanks to all of you who have taken the time to write!

One thing continues to bother me...

Where are all the FRIENDS of the Gosselin children? Even the ones invited to the sextuplet's birthday party didn't really seem to even KNOW the Gosselin kids very well.

I know that they have a big family already, but I just can't help wondering where all the kid's FRIENDS are.

Kate doesn't seem to have any friends either. People are probably scared to death of her!

The kids, however, really NEED time with kids other than their own siblings,in my opinion.

charlie said...

People play in their driveway/front yard when they don't have a back yard. Kate, you have a back yard - use it! Don't parade your children daily for the paparazzi. And both parents need to stop dressing like they are teenagers.

Both of these parents are acting out and shame on TLC for giving them a platform. Not that I'm going to watch the new seasons but I wonder how TLC is going to explain the chaos.

met said...

No wonder they like the cardboard boxes

As my MIL would say "a toy is just a toy, but a box is anything you can imagine" My kids have more fun with boxes than with that plastic crap. (though we all love legos) My daughter never, ever played with dolls, strollers or that girly stuff.

I would say the only way you'd see the kids with a "toy-toy" is if someone paid Kate.

IMO, the photos that appear on a daily basis of Kate and her children are NOT the workings of some random 'stalking' paparrazi. The individual(s) that are taking the photos and in turn providing them for public viewing via internet websites are most definitely on the Kate Gosselin, or someone within her 'inner circle' payroll!

Ladylou said...

I have had one thought keep popping up in my brain when we see Kate trying to do anything without Jon.
What divorced/single mom anywhere in the country could do what she's doing if they had the millions of dollars that Kate has at her disposal?
No one should feel any thing but contempt for her or Jon.
Neither one of them have thought of the children first. They haven't put anyone above their selfish attitudes, not the kids and not each other.
Hail to the almighty dollar should be the words put to music as the show rolls out this August.

Sara said...

Good grief, I know teenage boys who have more maturity and common sense than Jon Gosselin. I literally feel a wave of nausea when I see photos of Jon with his deer-in-headlights facial expressions (as if he is surprised to see a camera in his face??) Even more repulsive is seeing Michael Lohan injecting himself into photos..can you not see you are being USED Jon?? Can you not find anyone to 'hang' with these days who does NOT have a mug shot?? How proud your children will be in the future to read and view your antics. Equally nauseating are photos of Kate with her ill fitting clothing and flesh flashing for the P-people she pays to photograph her in her driveway. TLC has been banned from my household for the last 3 months and I could not be more thrilled!

Still Disgusted in TX said...

Has anyone else considered the fact that maybe Jon isn't the poor abused saint TLC was portraying him to be? I think he was just as rotten all along and there is finally less of a filter now so we can see it all.

Yes, she treated him like crap, but he was also no shrinking violet. He just knew how to hide it better--one cannot forget when he asked her when she was going to pull the stick out? I am sure he asked her that a few more times over, just off camera or it was edited out.

We all know that anyone employed by the Gosselins or their horrid show must sign a confidentiality agreement. But what about the people not associated with the show? Jon and Kate have no shortage of enemies. For instance, why have Deanna Hummel and her silly brother been quiet? Mr Gray's wife? Surely these are people not too crazy about Jon and Kate yet they are maintaining a dignified silence. On the one hand, good for them. On the other, have they been hushed by TLC or the Gosselins somehow? Deanna's brother, in particular, seemed to enjoy the attention (and money, one presumes) he received by exposing jon and his sister. Just wondering....

Organic Lollipops said...

Re: why the kids don't seem to have any friends (except for the new blonde boy and the girl who went to the concert with the twins).

Am I imagining things or did Kate flip out a couple of years ago when one of the girls got a phone call from a school friend? Something like "I don't think 6 year olds should use the phone" and then she wouldn't let the twin accept the call? GREAT START, KATE.

JessieTYCG said...

In regards to Jon hanging out with Michael Lohan in the Hamptons, it occured to me that the un-holy trinity of douche-bag dads would be complete if Joe Jackson were also in those pictures. In other words, The Bad Father, The Con, and The Wholly Beer-gut.

stop the show said...

Within the past few weeks, I have not posted anything on this blog, only read. But now I want to speak up and say something. The person who is at fault here is JON GOSSELIN. He is being one of the worst father's I have ever seen. His behavior with the young women is disgusting and embarrassing to his children. I do not feel sorry for Jon, think that Kate drove him to this, or even wish him the best. He is a pig.

But, what gets me the most upset is that people are still finding fault with Kate. I am in no way saying that Kate hasn't made some mistakes in the past. We all know that she has some really bad sides to her. But, why must we still find fault with every move she makes. Maybe she is really playing with her children. And its not just for show. Do I think that they should use their backyarrd? Yes. But Kate is being the adult here. Kate has been with her children for the past week, while some d-bag of a father has been hanging out with drug users, and Michael Lohan. COME ON! If this was Kate, everyone would be blowing up at her. Kate is doing nothing wrong right now compared to Jon. I really think that we need to stop always finding something wrong with her. And those kids are happy. Maybe not as happy as all children with married parents. But thsoe little girls on the swings. How can you say that someone is being a good parent when those girls are that happy?

I think Deanna's brother has spilled everything he knows. I am sure Deanna wants the whole subject to go away - she is an elementary school teacher and their was talk at the height of that scandal that she would lose her job. Deanna was pretty much only around the kids when Kate wasn't around and they weren't filming so what is she going to say.

Mrs. Nields (the bodyguards wife) has a son. Why would she sacrifice her son's well being to publicly gossip about the Gosseins. There has been talk that Kate has stayed with them when she has to be away from the kids - that suggests that she doesn't believe they were having an affair anyway.

TUNDRA said...

Personally I don't think Kate is incapable of playing with her kids. I just don't think she enjoys it and in fact, would probably rather be at the spa indulging herself in one of her favorite treatments. After all, she does work hard at being a reality tv mom.

Pam said...

Awwwww Kate..how do you DO it! How heart warming to see photos of you on Just Jared..Kate holding her daughter with a huge fake smile! Kate bringing in the trash! (All by HERSELF!)Kate looking on adoringly while the kids pose on a swingset! Kate wearing one of the twin's dresses again!

We should stop finding fault with Kate when she has been the mainstay in exploiting her own children? She has lied, continues to lie, and exposes her children to situations that aren't good for them.

Jon is acting like a fool, yes. But that doesn't make Kate any more palatable.

I have to heartily disagree that those children seem happy. They do not look like normal happy children to me. There is something very stunted and strange there. Playing on the driveway is normal? All the time? I don't think so. And look at their faces. That's not happiness.

@Stop the show

Respectfully, I do not think anyone needs to dig too hard to find anything wrong with Kate. If the kids are so 'happy' why are they in counselling? Sorry but I do not fall for the 'happy, smiling' photos of the kids and Kate..Kate is POSING and STAGING these photos..we have a very good idea what the REAL life is all about (though TLC and KON are playing us for fools) and the truth is not represented in those fake photos..I do not think their are smiles and happiness when they are behind closes doors and the cameras are not on them

bowtiejess said...

I can see it now. The kids, home from the first day of school, "Mom! Mom, what's a whore?"
"Where did you hear such a thing!", Kate snaps.
"Little Suzie at school told me her mom says you bought new boops and now you are running around showing them off like a whore!"
I say this with snark, yes, but I am truly worried for I see a real possibility for this type of situation. Sadly, I fear it will be even worse than that. I am so sad for these children. Bullies, mean girls, older kids all have tons of ammunition at their disposal to hurt these children.
What is WRONG with these people!?!?

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

and little Suzie's mom is wrong for talking like that...especially in front of little Suzie.

Organic Lollipops said...

IMHO, the reason that Jon has stated that his heart is with Hailey, even though we KNOW he is still shacking up with Kate 2.0 at Casa LOLhan (if she wasn't there the p-people would be all over her) is because Hailey is a loaded gun at this point. I'm sure he's confided in her, I'm SURE he's been smoking pot with her, and if he breaks her heart (which is just days away) she will make someone a very nice interview. He doesn't want a 22 year old "woman scorned" out there.

Kate 1.0 is a joke. Sitting there with Play-Doh heats on her, clearly mugging for the cameras... gag.

The bodyguards must be "just outside the picture range" at the park huh? Cuz you all know they are there.

And what an environmentalist she's become - dragging those big heavy recyclable bins all the way down that drive all by her little self

Why is everyone so "proud" that she's doing so well? She's living in a $1.1M home - with loads of helpers - no physical job to get up early, dressed and spend all day at to come home to care for her brood - like all the other "single mom's" out there.

Geesh..........

Kiki said...

The X17 pics look like one of two things. Jon has got some ash in his eye from his cigarette or he's picking a bug off his face.

TLC keeps running the revolting 'Kate Can Do ad'. Would suggest there's an absence of advertisers wanting to advertise on TLC. (TV stations with no ads fill the airtime with show promos or public service announcements). Her fake boobs look like they've been set too widely apart. They're practically under her armpits.

Hard to tell what Jon is thinking or feeling but I agree it could be he's finally hit the wall ...

Personally I think Jon is way out of his element and the best thing he can do is spend quality time with his kids when it's his turn while exploring career options that don't involve capitalizing on his kids in any way, shape or form.

Kate may be getting some good press from taking the garbage out to the curb but let's face it, tens of millions of women single, married, divorced with or without kids do the same thing and don't get any gold stars. Kate is just hamming it up for the papparazzi but I'm grateful she had enough sense not to wear a bikini, LOLS.

TUNDRA said...

How many times do the sheeple need to hear that this pity party for Kate is so over? She's not pining away for Jon. Far from it.

Virginia Mom said...

Paul Peterson, from "A Minor Consideration" is going to be on the CBS Morning Show Monday morning at 7:30pm talking about the Octo Mom and two other "court cases"....Bet he will discuss this Gosselin situation. He knows about being a child on tv (The Donna Reed Show), and his organization does great work!

goawayfools said...

PJ, you're probably right. I guess Deanna and Mrs Nield are behaving like normal, self-respecting people would. And that is what separates Jon and Kate from the rest of most of the world; the willingness to play their lives out in the press. Maybe that's why seemingly innocuous photos of Kate watching her kids play manages to infuriate people so; it's so obviously for her benefit, not the kids

Aunt Chris said...

As for the pictures of Jon crying, I think it's just from the smell of those sneakers.

TUNDRA said...

It is despictable how Jon and Kate see nothing wrong with playing out their divorce on reality tv.

TLC, their advertisers and sponsors should be absolutely ashamed of themselves for enabling this kind of programming, nevermind targeting it toward family audiences.

The drama of the past 2-3 weeks is all to drive up the ratings for the return of their show from it's hiatus (what a joke that was!). This is a replay of the same strategy used for the separation/divorce announcement show.

Does anyone really think this isn't about money? Kate and Jon have no job but to "be themselves" in a dysfunctional marriage now divorce. This is not entertainment. It is an abomination!!!

Works_for_a_living said...

I've been thinking about Jon wanting to be "Just Jon". He lost his 20's - boo hoo.

I got pregnant with my first daughter when I was 19, and although I was married, it was still hard. I made it through college and had my second daughter two weeks after I recieved my college degree.

I will turn 31 next month and I would NEVER say that I lost out on my 20's. Yes, I had my babies young, but that was mine and my husband's decision....just as it was Jon and Kate's decision to have their children.

Jon needs to own up to his responsibilites and accept the fact that he has these 8 beautiful children who depend on him for protection and support, not to mention love.

The only thing Jon Gosselin loves is himself and the man he thinks he could have been.

I have news for him....he could have been a better man than he was and much greater man than he is now.

He is an insult to those of us who willingly sacrificed for our children without even thinking of it as a sacrifice.

Ugh!

I'm shocked said...

What? Kate took the trash out and didn't wear her high heels. Boy, she really is slipping.

Don't speak said...

Jon is NOW saying that he's not dating ANYONE, that he only wants friends. WOW, is his publisist and lawyer setting him straight. He was headed down a VERY slippery slope, and he had to start saying the kids are first, or Kate would have KILLED him money wise in court.
He was told to SHUT UP and keep his pants ON. I just KNOW it.

Your no one special said...

"Look at me, look at me. SEE, I CAN drag the trashcans to the curb."
Kate, what a gal. Most of us as woman DO take out the trash, married, or single. Your no one special. You just think you're a legend in your own time.

Kate's boobs look like mine did after going on the pill, I went from a small B to a D. Maybe she's had no reason to be on it for the past couple of years and now she is.......and if that's the case it's really none of our business

=========================

2 comments about this statements:

1. If Kate does have PCOS (which I personally doubt) then she should have been on the Pill all along. I have PCOS and one of the main ways to control the hormonal imbalance that is a result of PCOS it so be on a BCP such as orthotricyclen.
http://pcos.about.com/od/pcos101/a/ocp.htm

I am in my 40's and have PCOS. I have never been able to achieve a pregnancy even with extensive intervention. Yet I remain on the Pill even thought I can't get pregnant so that my hormones are in balance. It is one of the greatest ironies of my life.

2. If Kate was not on the pill, then why should she go on it when she is supposedly infertile?

Makes no sense to me either way.

The boobies are as fake as her tan and everything else about her.

She makes me ill.

Jayne said...
I found it interesting that Kate expects everyone to help her. She has talked in many episodes (and in real life) about having help. She needed that extra nurse for a year, Jon needs to help her all the time, the kids need to help each other and fetch things for Kate.

Kate also mentions the word "protection" and in the same breath, help. Jon should protect her- from what? Herself? Her demons? The hurt child within?

I completely understand that in Kate's perception, she's had a rough childhood, but give it a rest. She has people- people who wash her clothes, dry them, fold them, put them away. She has a personal chef (according to some sources), assorted babysitters, and other people who help watch the 'tups.

As much of a limp vagina that I think Jon is, he needs protection too. He needs protection from hits, slaps, verbal and mental abuse while Kate stays in bed or barks orders. It would be different if she had some sort of disability (perhaps she could claim depression?) but until then, get your ass out of bed/plastic chairs and be a MOTHER.

The children need protection, too. Protection from J & K stealing the money that they've been whored out for. Protection from being under the spotlight every day. Protection from the day they will no longer be in the public eye (and probably broke). Most of all, they need protection from the verbal and possible physical abuse of J & K. These children are going to be in a world of hurt as adults and require tons of therapy.
----------

Had Jon slapped hit and verbally abused Kate the way she did him,`women everywhere would be up in arms. But yet Kate's fans find it acceptable that she treat her husband AND KIDS with violence and contempt.

What accounts for that?

Works_for_a_living said...

Jon (Jon's PR people....that's public relations, everyone!) is saying he's seeing no one??? Hmmmm.....good one Jon. That's the best joke I've heard from you since you told Kate to get the stick out of her butt!

From what I gather, Deanna is simply mortified by the entire episode and hasn't spoken about it. She is also not talking to her brother so he is out of the loop.

I'm sure Gina Neild never reveals anything her husband reveals about any of his clients.

Changed Kate? said...

Maybe Kate is trying to change at least by her kids. We are seeing more pictures of her playing with them without TLC.

I'm NOT a fan. J&K should end the show for the kids sake. But, where is Jon now? Playing around the country with 2 drug users. I can't believe people STILL stand up for him! Jon had his chance to be the "good" parent

We see Kate at the park,enjoying the kids. And we don't know what's really in her heart. She may feel bad for all she's done.

Maybe I'm wrong but we have to think about the possibility...

DEBATE PLEASE!

Kate's Angry Beaver said...

High profile California divorce attorney has a column at Huffington Post about the Gosselin divorce:

This reality based television series takes the question of impaired parenting judgment to a new level. It is bad enough that Jon and Kate Gosselin decided to make their lives of their eight children public spectacles in exchange for fame and fortune. Certainly no one asked these eight small children whether they wanted what would otherwise have been a private, and hopefully somewhat innocent childhood, kept that way. Instead, their parents decided that their lives would now be exposed to millions of Americans that they did not know, and would never meet. For the past couple of years, millions of strangers have been given the opportunity to view matters regarding these children that, but for their parents narcissistic behavior, would not otherwise have been known by anyone.

Having opened the door to the public through the miracle of modern television, the Gosselins have now compounded the potential damage to their children, but making very public, the matter of their marital woes and impending separation and divorce. It is not bad enough that they have each decided to take their issues to the media, allowing themselves to be the centerpiece of most supermarket tabloids and other publications for weeks. Apparently these people cannot get enough attention from the media. Rather than saying "this has gone too far", the couple now intend to continue to air their personal dirt, when they allow the series to continue with another season, expected to open with scenes of the parents telling their children of their impending divorce. It is bad enough that people feel the need to air this kind of dirt in their court documents. The Gosselins are determined to make it so that anyone and everyone knows exactly what goes on in their household. Clearly, they have no regard for the impact that this will have on their children, on into adulthood.


Don't be fooled by Kate's PR-motivated attempts at parenting, they are clearly as scripted as most of what we've seen the last couple of years. If she was serious about being a good mommy she would end this farce of a reality show.

Pam said...

@Changed Kate

No, I do not think Kate feels bad for what she has done..in order to feel bad she would have to acknowledge that she HAS done many things wrong and I don't ever see that happening. I think she is loving her pathetic attempts as a single 'Can Do!' mom..and she is also loving Jon hanging himself in the media..she thinks it makes her look better but nothing he does can ever make her look better..

Changed Kate said, "We see Kate at the park,enjoying the kids. And we don't know what's really in her heart. She may feel bad for all she's done.

I sincerely doubt it. Kate has never shown one bit of remorse for anything she's ever done wrong that we've seen. She has always blamed someone else for her "rampages" and "meltdowns." IMO, she is suddenly playing with the kids because of the negative comments about the way she dragged the kids through NYC to the photo shoot last weekend.

If I hear her say she's going to do the things that Jon used to do one more time, I may gag. All single parents have to start doing what the other parent used to do. It's not really an option and she should stop acting like she's special.

But, what gets me the most upset is that people are still finding fault with Kate. I am in no way saying that Kate hasn't made some mistakes in the past. We all know that she has some really bad sides to her. But, why must we still find fault with every move she makes.

******
Mistakes? Where do I begin? How about with filming nearly every breathing moment of her childrens lives and then televising them on national TV? Those kids have no private moments! What do you think school is going to be like for them!

How about manipulating her stooopid husband into having more children than they could afford? They couldn't even afford the first two, so why, pray tell, did she insist on fertility treatments again?

And why did they begin marketing their children to the highest bidder practically before they were out of the womb?

These are not mistakes. These are calculated movements. And the children must reflect well upon her plan of action. They must smile, pose, and dress according to her grand scheme.

Jon and Kate have become caricatures of themselves. They need to give their children back what's left of their precious childhood.

Sadly, I don't expect that to happen unless/until Jon or Kate grows a brain.

Ok so 2 days ago Jon claimed Hailey was always on his mind and he was not in a relationship with Kate 2.0..yesterday he tried pathetically to save face and say no I am not involved with anyone..today he claims he IS in a relationship with Kate 2.0 (EOnline)and that the relationship is 'private' LMAO..oh really Jon?? You are an attention w**** who is courting the media despite your protests and how dare you utter the word 'privacy'! Your children have NO privacy and you can bet that your juggling of females will ever remain private. I hope Hailey cashes in and speaks loudly about her relationship with Jon..he is playing games with people's feelings and he comes off like an immature adolescent making such a fool of himself and others publicly. I hope Kate uses this disgusting display of immaturity against him and I am no fan of Kate but I am repulsed by seeing this guy shame his kids by acting like such a fool..Jon says Kate 2.0 quit her job 'for him'..well Jon, you are being used and I have no sympathy for you at all..it wont last and you will have no respect from anyone..most importantly the 8 kids who seem to be the last thing on your selfish mind right now!

Jim said...

Jon says of Hailey:

"She loves me for who I am, not what I do"

Huh? What DO you do Jon? The guy has an MS office certificate and exploits his kids for profit..give me a break!

Kate's Angry Beaver said...
High profile California divorce attorney has a column at Huffington Post about the Gosselin divorce:

This reality based television series takes the question of impaired parenting judgment to a new level. It is bad enough that Jon and Kate Gosselin decided to make their lives of their eight children public spectacles in exchange for fame and fortune. Certainly no one asked these eight small children whether they wanted what would otherwise have been a private, and hopefully somewhat innocent childhood, kept that way. Instead, their parents decided that their lives would now be exposed to millions of Americans that they did not know, and would never meet. For the past couple of years, millions of strangers have been given the opportunity to view matters regarding these children that, but for their parents narcissistic behavior, would not otherwise have been known by anyone.

Having opened the door to the public through the miracle of modern television, the Gosselins have now compounded the potential damage to their children, but making very public, the matter of their marital woes and impending separation and divorce. It is not bad enough that they have each decided to take their issues to the media, allowing themselves to be the centerpiece of most supermarket tabloids and other publications for weeks. Apparently these people cannot get enough attention from the media. Rather than saying "this has gone too far", the couple now intend to continue to air their personal dirt, when they allow the series to continue with another season, expected to open with scenes of the parents telling their children of their impending divorce. It is bad enough that people feel the need to air this kind of dirt in their court documents. The Gosselins are determined to make it so that anyone and everyone knows exactly what goes on in their household. Clearly, they have no regard for the impact that this will have on their children, on into adulthood.

Don't be fooled by Kate's PR-motivated attempts at parenting, they are clearly as scripted as most of what we've seen the last couple of years. If she was serious about being a good mommy she would end this farce of a reality show.

Wow, thanks so much! Excellent opinion piece, right on point!!!

We should fax this to Paul Peterson.

Marisa said...

Jon looks like such a poser, as my high school students would say. He wants so desperately to stay in the spotlight that he is willing to hang out with Lindsey Lohan's crazy dad and date a reporter for Star magazine. So much for hating the p-people! He's willing to date one.

The pics of Kate playing with the kids are pretty disturbing. She has full makeup on and her hair done and it looks so staged. It will be awful for them to realize one day that Mommy gave them attention because she was getting paid. That's if they don't realize that already.

fidosmommy said...

Are these pictures in a public park? Why are the Gosselins the only children using the equipment?
Where are the other families from the community? It looks like a beautiful summer day and I would expect the place to be teeming with young children all using the equipment.

Perhaps they were cleared out so these shots could be staged?

The blonde woman with the young boy isn't wearing a wedding ring, in case that means anything. Are either of Kate's sisters divorced with a child? My gut instinct is that this woman and Kate are not sisters, but may be related - cousins, perhaps, since she was also dressed in black the day of the funeral visitation of Kate's relative this week.

Jayley said...

Tabloid Newsflash JON.. if someone working for a tabloid magazine suddenly wants to be your best friend, do you suppose they may have ulterior motives? It's been done before and is not out of the rhelm of possibility that it will be done again. Just thought I'd mention it since you still don't seem very aware of how you're being used by TLC. Your greed will continue to be your downfall.

That Was Supposed to be a Dress? said...

Seriously, I thought that was a shirt and she "forgot" to put the pants on to go with it.

I play with my kids every day, and not once in their lives have they decorated my all-but-naked breasts with Play-Doh. Neither inside my house with the curtains drawn nor out in the driveway and certainly never with a camera around. That looked like something I'd expect to see on a Girls Gone Wild commercial.

Black and White Justice said...

I am really big on justice. I think that's why I am so pissed of because there is such injustice going on. These people have bugged me for a long time but now it is just ridiculous. Every day when I log on there is a new story about these awful people, but the worst part is that so many morons seem to believe that just because Jon is being a childish jerk that Hate is suddenly this great, hands-on mom! It is pathetic. Her PR firm is really earning its keep. Is everyone leaving comments on these articles? I hope so. There are too many pro-Kate ones out there and we need some balance! Let it be known that she is an awful mother and these are just photo ops for her and nothing more! Let it be known that she was gone forever on her book tour for the book she did not write. Let it be known that sitting in her driveway means she DOES want her picture taken, not that she a "poor mom being stalked"! Please, defend Jon if you must, but just get the word out that Take is still a monster!

Stopthemadness
What an awesome way to get back at her for the sh it she's made him go thru the past years, all the disrespect, the on camera humiliation, not just having to BE on camera but the constant lies and pretense since as we've discovered, it's not reality it's scripted - forcing him to go thru a fake wedding that confused the kids (was that why Mady was acting "ugly" and couldn't be in the cookie making?
```````````````````````````````
Kate herself told People magazine that when they told the twins of the split, Mady said she wan't surprised or she could have guessed or something to that effect.

changed Kate? said...
We see Kate at the park,enjoying the kids. And we don't know what's really in her heart. She may feel bad for all she's done.

*********
Well, I'm not looking at the pics/feeding the Gosselin frenzy, but I don't think I'd see Kate enjoying anything except the exposure.

No, I don't know what's in her tiny little heart, but I know what I see in her past behavior, and that's extreme narcissism which I think is at the level of a personality disorder. So...she thinks of her children as just a means to an end, and people like that DO NOT CHANGE. They don't think they're doing anything wrong, regardless of how evil it seems to us, and they do not feel remorse. It's all about Kate, all the time. No one else is important to her. If she knows she needs to behave a certain way to keep the money train going, that's what she'll do. It's all an act.

Look for Paul on CBS said...

Virginia Mom said...
Paul Peterson, from "A Minor Consideration" is going to be on the CBS Morning Show Monday morning at 7:30pm talking about the Octo Mom and two other "court cases"....Bet he will discuss this Gosselin situation. He knows about being a child on tv (The Donna Reed Show), and his organization does great work!

Hey, thanks for passing this along; I'm going to go set it up to record; I like this guy. He doesn't give up. He has impact in print and on TV because he's got the background as a child actor; he presents himself well and credibly. I always liked him even before he was a child advocate.

A Sad Commentary said...

From Kate's Angry Beaver: "Don't be fooled by Kate's PR-motivated attempts at parenting, they are clearly as scripted as most of what we've seen the last couple of years. If she was serious about being a good mommy she would end this farce of a reality show."
-------------------
Wow. Thanks for the excerpt from the Huffington Post. That will be seen by a lot of people who regularly go to that site; it has a wide audience.

The J&K charade is wobbly and should never have continued to this point. It's disgraceful. I agree with your opinion about the scripted photo ops. On the surface, yes we see some smiles. But look at them again and Kate is definitely posing at the park.

It's overkill on the new SuperMommy act. I think she's trying to document things for the divorce court and/or do damage control on mommy image for the show, the book, etc. so that she can get things rolling again. If she wasn't having to try so hard with the damage control, she'd be doing something else and letting paid household help take out the trash.

And I must say, in terms of the kids having some fun, they deserve it and it's probably hard for them to know the difference of when it's real fun or fake fun; they're just happy doing something that kids do, like crawl around on playground equipment (beats the driveway). I don't see all the photos on various sites, so maybe I'm mistaken, but I feel like I haven't seen Leah in awhile; it's mostly Alexis and Hannah in the close-ups. And maybe I'm wrong, but it seems like in a majority of photos over time, it's hard to ever get a smile out of one of the boys; they always look a little lost in the background (and dazed) to me.

Chilled to the bone when said by poster here, Marisa, about the children, "It will be awful for them to realize one day that Mommy gave them attention because she was getting paid."

Maybe this will all end early enough in the tups' lives to not leave too many emotional scars but I think it will be different with Cara and Mady. They're going to get the brunt of this at school now, they've been force-fed filming in formative years of which they'll definitely have some unpleasant memories, and they probably have a more lingering adjustment to the divorce and absence of Daddy than the younger kids because they're capable of understanding it better. Poor twins, so much extra to have to deal with when you're only eight years old.

Not rocket science...parents are to blame all the way. They could have walked away as things got worse and worse, both in front of and away from the cameras, but they chose not to and it was very poor judgment. All the money in the world cannot repair their broken family...you can't put it in reverse and start over; too late. And somehow I don't think that even eight resentful young adults will elicit remorse or sympathy from their own parents when judgment day arrives.

Terry K. said...

Does anyone else find it ironic that Jon Gosselin is hanging out with Michael Lohan? I mean, Michael and Dina Lohan are also experts at exploiting their children (not only Lindsay, but also Dina's reality show with her youngest daughter, Ali).

I'm so sick of all of this. I try not to follow this ridiculous fodder anymore, but then I get curious and check it out. Afterwards, I feel physically ill.

I, perhaps, should throw my computer out the window.

Melanie P. said...

Goodness! In the 'as the stomach turns' daytime soap opera that Jon's life has become, Kate 2.0 (Major) who left her job at a tabloid to be Jon's girlfriend is still saying they're an item, but Jon is saying it's not true.

First, who LIES about being with Jon? Seriously. He's all greasy and sleazy looking. You have to have something wrong with you to fervently claim over and over you're Jon Gos's girlfriend. *ugh*

Jon, I thought you'd get out of this marriage and do the right thing. Not going around, acting the fool, hooking up with unbalanced women and hanging out with douchebags. You can't go back in time Jon - so grow the heck up and start acting like a father of 8.

Just when I thought it was safe to go food shopping again, I pass by the registers in my local supermarket and what do I see - at least 3 rag mags with those two bozos on the covers. UGH - ENOUGH!

Later that night, I'm channel-surfing and see the promo for the "new" season of Kon+8. MAKE IT STOP!!!

Monday morning, having my first cup of the day, flipping through the newspaper and see this in the "Hangin' in the Hamptons" section...

DORK!!

Kate was always a hag but now Jon has proven how DESPERATE he is hangin' with a no-lister like Lohan!

When I think of these two, it reminds me of a skit from the "Carol Burnett Show" -

"As The Stomach Turns"
