Given the attention seeking behavior of late, who knows what they'll do next. They're still surprising me.

In the August 15th thread, Unhappy Days said (re: picture of Cara and Kate going to the nail salon)...

Cara seems to be more inclined to boyish things, activities and clothing. Maybe she isn't happy to be forced into a mom-chosen activity.

******

Remember, Cara is the one with the beautiful, long nails by choice.
She takes great pride in her nails.
But she may like to take care of them herself instead of being taken to a professional salon to have them filed, painted and clipped. I HATE anybody filing my nails! It's a job I want to do myself.

she continues with emotional harm said...

Kate has an obvious disregard for the best interests of her children. Any normal parent would shield their children in times of stress and turmoil. Not mother of the year role model KI.

photo op said...

Cara looks really confused and unhappy in those pictures because Kate is using her for photo op. Cara doesn't understand why her mom's choice of bonding always involves taking her to a very public place and get photographed, why can't it be more private? And why is her mother dressing like she is ready for close up not like she is just trying to have a relaxing day with her daughter?

goawayfools said...

Not only does Kate not shield her kids from the turmoil of the divorce, she makes a bad situation worse by blabbing private details and disparaging comments about her kids' father to whomever will pay her to do so. Worse yet, she relishes the attention, even though it is negative. Her clothes are too small and revealing for someone so thick. She dresses like a hooker when she hopes to be photographed and it must horrify and embarrass her kids to no end.

media darling said...

TLC is out to destroy Jon. Their friends in media are on a mission to attack Jon. I am not a big fan of Jon but you have to admit some reports don't even have named source, witnesses, and evidence.

Mothers usually have custody of their children. That's why TLC takes Kate's side. They need Kate's permission to exploit the children more than they need Jon's.

I remember Charlie Sheen was mad that his ex wife Denise Richards was going to put her daughters on her reality show. He thought it was an exploitation of their children to help the mother's career. He asked the divorce judge to block her right to do so. In the end, the judge allowed the mother to put the kids on the show. It's like what she wants to do with the girls during her watch is solely her decision.

So if Jon ever wants to take the kids off the show, he will lose just like Charlie Sheen. It's not a pleasant thought. Isn't it?

Jon has to be portrayed as the ultimate bad guy so you will feel sorry for Kate and continue to support her.

Let's face it. Jon is not that attractive to get a different woman every 3 days. He is just not hot. If some women want 15 minutes of fame, all they have to do is to get photographed with Jon and make up a story about "Oh no, Jon did this and that", the public will eat it up. They don't have to actually have a fling with him. That's too much sacrifice.

Ed Hardy said...

A real germ phobic won't go to nail salon. Nail salons can be health hazard if they don't clean the equipment properly. It does happen that Customers get sick from it.

Kate is not a germ phobic. Writers created this character, Kate.

Kate is also not the real mother taking care of the kids. They came out from her belly all right. But she doesn't take care of them. TLC staff, "not a nanny", and babysitters take care of the bunch. Kate just plays a mother on TV.

HBailey said...

Anyone else find it odd that there are no paparazzi pictures of the cops responding to Kate's call at their home when Jon refused to let her on the property? BUT...there are LOTS of pictures of Kate at the Days Inn...makes me wonder if that was one big advertisement stunt for Days Inn by TLC.

I haven't watched the show in months, but for those who still do...keep an eye out for Days Inn commercials while the show is airing.

Sallyx said...

Kate never misses an opportunity to parade those children around out in full public view. It doesn't seem to concern her, in the least, that most of the time they appear depressed or sullen.
Kate degrades and destroys them one pic and one episode at a time.
She is little more than a cruel and heartless circus owner abusing the acts that bring in her revenue.Disgusting

nancy19 said...

Its who they are said...

Where did you hear the cops were called again??? Do tell....

I would like to know said...

Why were the cops called again?

ItzRLyf said...

I tried to resist the copy of US Weekly at the dentist yesterday, but I needed to kill some time and I couldn't bring myself to read about Michael Jackson.

So, now JonBoy is shopping another reality show, this time about divorced dads?! With Michael Lohan, another train wreck of a father? You can all see where this is going, can't you? He's another Rob from Survivor: he's going to show up everywhere, from the Amazing Race to game shows to more D List "reality" shows, until his partying catches up with him and he winds up on "Celebrity Fit Club." When all else fails, expect JonBoy to resort to the one thing that has made all other D Listers "it" people: the sex tape that was "stolen" from his house and never meant to be seen except by him and Hailey.

Don't even get me started on the possibilities for the kids, but I think it's safe to say that TLC will have a gold mine about ten years from now with "Gosselins Gone Wild."

And Jon is doing better? Come on- Jon is as bad or worse than Kate. Lets be honest here. Jon deserves no pass either.

K8 aint GR8 said...

POOR MADY AND CARA!

Now on radaronline they portray a headline about Mady having a meltdown at the spa -- when it's clearly Cara.

In the photo, they show Cara trying to shield her face so the camera won't capture her crying.

Kate is doing nothing to protect her from the camera and is looking MAJORLY irate.

Why does she have to drag her kids out to the spa, post office, coffee shop etc?

She could EASILY afford to hire an esthetician to come to the house for pampering.

I feel exceptionally bad for the twins who have been forced to endure classmates throughout this humiliation.

At least the kids have each other for comfort because they certainly can't rely on their "mother" who seemingly cares only about their physiological needs: food, clothing, shelter and health.

If the kids can't trust Kate because her parenting motives revolve around fame and money, what kind of relationship does she expect to have with them once they mature?

This is the most awful reality show on TV.

SavetheSheeples said...

Neither Jon or Kate are fit to be parents, and I do hope neither of them bring any more children in to this world.

Their behavior and actions that are made public make me cringe. They are both self-absorbed and too selfish to be the good parents that those kids need and deserve.

They can't stand it when no one (the media/public) is paying attention to them. And now that their ratings are sinking, we can expect even more public foolishness (on Kate's part, anyway) to try and lure viewers back to the show.

Jon couldn't care less, I think, about TLC or the show. And I can't understand why he would want another "reality" show when he was so vocal about wanting to stop the current one.

I sincerely hope that TLC ends this show. I stopped watching several weeks ago, and I won't watch anymore. I will never believe another word that comes out of either of their (J&K) mouths, because they have both been proven to be liars and can't get their stories straight about anything. The show is nothing but scripted junk and those poor kids are merely props. The nannies spend more time with them than J&K do. It's incredibly sad.

Their children are going to be emotionally scarred for the rest of their lives because of J&K's bitter relationship and divorce and the constant nanny presence and the rare presence of their parents. Every decision they will ever make in the future will, without a doubt, be based on their childhood feelings and experiences. Things will never get better for these kids unless the show ends.

Marie France said...

The Gosselin kids - ALL 8 of them - are nothing but props and/or accessories to Khate. She does not give one iota about them. She is a user and abuser.

Police again said...

AP mentioned it on Friday in an article, also the Readingeagle said the police were called out on Thurs. at 7p for a domestic dispute, but left after speaking to the party.

LisaNH said...

Maybe the reason why Cara was so upset was because Kate wouldn't let her have a drink of water? I noticed in the pics Kate carrying a water bottle. We all know how generous she is with water when her kids are thirsty.......NOT.

Unbelievable! said...

The cops are called 2x in one week? That's just the type of "strong woman" I want to see at the California conference.

Jacsamic said...

Go check out the latest RadarOnline pictures today: Cara covering her face, obviously in tears.

And, look closely at her hand to see the nails.

Unbelievable.

dede02 said...

I saw the pictures of Kate & Mady leaving the nail salon. I feel SOOOO sorry for Mady (and the others), she is crying & looks so miserable! Also, I think her nails are totally inappropriate for someone her age. Another thing, do those kids own any other shoes besides crocs? We know Kate does! I guess Kate or some of her "people" have been reading here again, this time her shoes are not in her purse, she is carrying them!

just wondering said...

As far as I know, the story about the police being called again was an error and has been retracted.

anotherPAmom said...

I thought that the report of the police coming to the Konpound was just recirculation of old gossip??!! A gossip site reported it as a NEW visit yesterday but it turned out they were just rehashing reports of the old police visit. They took the report down pretty quickly when people figured it out. . . . . also, it there a legitimate report of the t-shirt cutting?

No Drama Mama said...

The cops were NOT called out again. One of the tabloids picked up on an article the Reading Eagle had posted A WEEK AGO and never bothered to check the date. Actually, I think it was Perez who did it. Jon was not even in town Thursday night!

dede02 said...

Sorry, meant Cara was crying outside the nail salon. Sorry!

Kate doesnt care; she got HER pedicure. Cara's presence served nothing more than Kate's chosen 'prop' of the day!! Kate says she 'hides HER tears behind sunglasses' but in turn sees no problem in EXPLOITING the tears of her very own children! Seriosuly, if the photograph had a thought bubble above Kate's head, it would say 'I LOVE this toe polish color'.

-------------------------
Actually, the reason Sheen lost is because he'd signed a waiver agreeing to the kids being on the show prior to his legal action trying to keep them off the show.

People were/are quick to blame Denise Richards for the very brief appearances of her kids on her reality show, but surprisingly silent about the more blatant exploitation of the Gosselin kids. I've always wondered why that is?

I can't find those pics, looks like they were taken down. You sure it was Radaronline?

ruby said...

It's so painful to see Cara cry outside the hair salon.

Cara is the sweet and mature one. She rarely has meltdown. It has to be too much for her to make her cry.

It angers me to see that Kate just minds her own business/nails walking in front of Cara. Cara is following her and crying. It is so sad.

The disgusting mother only cares about her nails and paps taking pictures. She couldn't care less about Cara.

lucy said...

Oh my God! Radaronline.com just took down the unflattering photo of cold hearted Kate walking in front of crying Cara.

Somebody (TLC?) probably asked Radaronline to take it down otherwise they won't give Radaronline exclusive again.

They didn't expect the photo has generated a lot of outrage. They thought it was a simple meltdown. But anybody can read Kate's cold attitude toward her daughter and the kid's sorrow is not just a simple meltdown. The divorce and public humiliation is too much for the kids.

Tyra said...

Good God Gerdy! How many pairs of shoes does that woman own?!!!

LP said...

I saw the pictures and feel so very, very sorry for Cara. She looked upset going in to the salon and even more so coming out. BTY, Cara's nails are her own not tips. If you'll look at old pictures Cara has always had long nails and seems to take great pride in them. I will however say that filing them to "points" is a little bit much. They should have nice rounded tips.

dede02 said...

OMG!!!! The pictures that were on radaronline have been changed! They are now on page two, although Cara looks upset, the ones of her crying & trying to hide her face are GONE!!!!!! What is going on?

NoUse4Kate said...

Radar did take down the pics of Cara and hate leaving the nail salon. They were very sad to see. They were up this morning and there was a lot of people bashing k8 and radar. Radar once again called Cara "Mady." Idiots.

anotherthing... said...

getting pretty sick of this mess...

i know that a lot of people have put in their 2 cents, so heres mine (again):

there are no pap pics from the "trailer-park-cops-episode-minus-the-class" night ...nor any pap pics that show the 'real (nasty) kate".... because there are no paps, well maybe one.

the pics on justjared or radar come down QUICK of they are not making kate look good (physically and in a 'motherly' sense).

reason? the pics we see are from TLC cameras. to keep this train wreck int he media. because, really, no one cares anymore.

paps can make a bundle on big name celebs. kate, jon and the 8 are not big names celebs.

why would they herd to PA for a few grand at most?

i dont buy it.

think of the pap pics of real celebs.... the 'money shots'.

we dont see those anymore.

maybe one or two paps left out there anymore (theyre old news now). the rest are on her payroll.

pathetic.

poor sweet kids.....

Home of Steve Neild? said...

On the second page of radar, they reported that Kate spent last weekend in Maryland, at the home of Steve Neild and his wife Gina. Plus, it said that Kate had a "friend" over to her home yesterday, and they show the "unknown" woman. I swear, everything we accuse Kate of NOT doing (friends) all of a sudden she's doing it.

MossHill said...

IT'S WORKING.

There were a number of pictures of Cara crying on radaronline *this morning* ["Kate Has A Mother-Daughter Day At The Salon" is the *new* title] - and now they are GONE.

Keep at it folks - now someone is starting to recognize the children's privacy.

anotherthing... said...

okay. one more thing... lol

i live in so.cal. i see real celebs every now and then out doing the daily real-life grind.

in jeans. a hat. t-shirt. blending in. not being bombarded by p-people. its not impossible. even in so. cal.

so why would it be hard in PA????

shes nothing more than a drama queen attention wh*re.

and as a lot of you have been pondering... those kids (in my oppinion) are damaged. developmentally delayed. because of her.

they lead a tragic exsistence. because of what she (okay, 'they') have decided to subject them to for a paycheck.

the fake tears on the view. the 'i hate p-people (i hope hey get my good side)'. the snarky comments to the kids. the complete lack of maternal love or emotion in her dark-hole eyes when she interacts with her kids.

its all just sad.

what a scam.

it as if reality and the fiction TLC dreams up have become blurred in her world and she has no idea whats real.

and if she doesnt, as an adult, can you imagine what goes thru those childrens heads????

not knowing what mom they will get from one minute to the next: the one putting on the show for the cameras or the one who shoves them off of her when theyre desperatly seeking attention.

it makes me so sad for them and so MAD at tlc and kate (and jon, i guess. i still think theyd be better off with him).

as many of you have mentioned in the pics of late the kids just look sad.

how can tlc, PR people and nannys not notice this? and if they do notice, how can they be okay with it??????

ugh.

sorry for the rant of things that have already been stated!!! just had to say it!

ruby said...

Absolutely. In the picture, you can see one of Cara's nails is partly broken and another one is broken short, none of them are polished, so obviously she didn't get a manicure. She's wearing Crocs, so she didn't get a pedicure either. All she was there for was as a prop, so Kate could get her picture taken "bonding with her daughter". Instead of letting Cara spend the time with her friends or doing what she likes, Kate dragged her along and made her sit there waiting while Kate got her nails done. No wonder the poor thing was upset.

tcalp130 said...

haven't any of you had a daughter and let her cry? Or hasn't it happened to you? Sometimes there is no reasoning that will work! Kate and her kids are always being photographed so it's just more obvious.

__________________________________

She's had those nails since she was 6 or 7. Inappropriate or not, she's probably used to them enough by now not to injure herself or anyone else. On the list of things that qualify as poor-parenting on Kate's part, letting Cara have long nails is pretty far down the list. She seems to be a sweet kid, and if having ladylike nails makes her feel good about herself, that's fine. Lord knows she doesn't have much else in her life to make her feel good about herself. Anyway pictures from late spring she didn't have them so long, so probably it's a summer thing and she'll have to cut them back when school starts. Maybe that's even why she was crying, maybe she was supposed to get them done at the salon but she put up too much of a fuss.

The really main point is, this little girl's nails or her crying or her life shouldn't be on display for the whole world to see and speculate about.

ToTheMoonAlice said...

I just saw the pictures of Cara crying a few minutes ago...If you Google "kate and cara nails" you might be able to find them...That's what I did when I couldn't see them on the Radar site.

Those poor kids look so unhappy so much of the time...What a shame they had to have two such doofuses for parents! And no grandparents or aunts/uncles to come in and take up the slack...I think they must be very lonley sometimes.

NoUse4Kate said...

Haha! Radar once again removed my comments. I asked if someone at Radar got a conscience and took the pics down. I said for them to take pics of k8 or Jon but to leave the kids out of it because they never asked for any of this.

I am sure whoever posted the comments about TLC feeding the photo fest will have their comments removed quickly. ROL is pathetic at best. Wimps.

I Luv Twins said...

I saw the Radaronline pics of Cara and it seemed to me that Kate was mad at the paps and was trying to shield Cara from the photogs. I thought is was like a good deed she was trying to do. Did anyone else see that?

notcrying said...

The pics are still there...but it really doesn't look like she crying or "melting down"...it looks like she had something in her eye or poked herself in the eye. You can see in the third picture she's not crying...

my9cats said...

The pictures of Cara crying are still on Radar.
Click on Mother-Daughter day. When the awfully written story comes up look to the righthand side. The crying segment is there along with other KON Krap. Second from the top.

Joan10 said...

I did not see the pictures of Cara but I have to say I have mixed feelings about the removal of the pictures.

On the one hand I am happy for Cara that it was taken down. She doesn't deserve to be embarrassed like that.

On the other hand, I can't help thinking that everytime there is a picture showing the horror these children are being put through it might make someone finally stop this mess. Like they say a picture is worth a thousand words. The "authorities" need to see what is really going on. This latest PR stunt going on the past couple of weeks portraying Kate as this loving Mom is not helping the situation.

While it is not fair to the child that these types of pictures are shown let's put the blame where it ultimately belongs -- KATE. It looks like Cara was not having a good day and didn't want to go there in the first place. This is nothing unusual for a child to act this way but when you as a mother know there will be photographers around why put your child in what could be a bad situation. Getting your nails done was not something that had to be done that day.

Perhaps seeing pictures like this will help to stop the show and people from booking Kate for speaking engagements.

I know it sounds terrible but what is it going to take to get through to these people ??

Why are they news? said...

Why are they still in the news? A quote that someone wrote on a facebook page. How true it is.

Talent doesn't necessarily equal celebrity. Celebrity, however, usually seems to equal news. Unfortunately, news equals things that most people want to see: or at least the people that are prone to buy the things sold by companies that advertise during the news.

ANNA said...

She could EASILY afford to hire an esthetician to come to the house for pampering.

But if she did things like that, then people would complain about that too. So she simply can't win.

no fan said...

Didn't Jon tell everyone that he and Hailey were "just good friends"; when he hung out with her? Yep.

Kate and the "security man" are "friends", just like Jon and Hailey are just "good family friends".

If you notice Kate is like a school girl, she mentions her "head of security" all the time, in her interviews, like the recent people interview.

Jon-boy better get out his signed "contract" with Kate, and his emails and other proof...he had better start speaking up for himself, because Kate plans to bury him, and cut him completely out of her and the children's lives. He had best smarten up. Just look at what she has done with everyone else in her life! No one stands as more of a threat to her, than Jon. She is trying to kill his reputation and turn the kids against him.

Jon, put down the beer..get out of the bars, shut down the parties, and be a FATHER. Anyone can be a loser partyer...but only ONE person can be a father to your kids. You are just another guy to everyone else, but the most important person in the world to 8 little kids.....You are not choosing well.

justamom said...

Cara looks like she either just sneezed,or the chemical smell from the nail place is bugging her. I'm not a fan of 8 year olds getting their nails done, but I really doubt she's as miserable as many are making her out to be. My daughter looks like that when something makes her allergic, especially strong smelling chemicals.

Not sure what pics you are referring to but that definitely does not describe the ones that were up earlier. K8 was a couple of feet in front of and to the side of Cara and it was as if Cara was invisible to her. I think I will start right clicking and saving things from ROL.

goawayfools said...

The radaronline article says a "concerned Kate" is escorting Cara to the car. Who writes this stuff? I do not see this at all. I see a child that is visibly upset about something being ignored by her mother. Kate appears to be aware that Cara is crying and upset but does not look concerned or in any way sympathetic. She's probably mad the kid ruined her photo op.

Canadian Mom said...

If radraronline took the pic of Cara crying down, how come I was just able to SEE it???

Poor little gal.

Janine said...

AWWWWwww c'mon TLC... Please, please have mercy on these kids.

As far as the FAX, could be K8 didn't have a coupon. I bet she couldn't spring for an envelope or manilla file folder to cover the pages turned toward the camera. Why, oh why is she forcing her dream and her idolatry (money, fame) on these kids.
I wish they would stop this, set up as much therapy as needed for these kids... give them stability, offer them a way to have peers their own age... Can you even begin to imagine how socialy behind and fearful of other's they will be...
TLC.... where is the conscience?
people are leaving in droves. The ones who watch are VOYEURS and it is hurting 8 blessings.

I'd Talk Forever said...

They are still there on Radar. Google Kate and Mady Nails. Find the PHOTOS link from Radar. The pic will come up. I had to laugh about Kate's shoes. Nobody here in PA wears heels like that to run errands, shop, or go to the nail salon. She wore heels going into the salon, and after the pedi, wore flip flops and carried her shoes. Why not just wear the flip flops for running around before going to the salon? The only reason one would wear heels like that is when she KNOWS she's going to be noticed, photographed, etc., or WANTS to be photographed.

This is what I think said...

Personally I don't believe for one minute that Jon wants to take the children off the show. He never said that. He has always said that the show is not hurting the children and tries to say that it is 'helping' them (they are smarter, well-rounded, like people, etc.) What I believe is that Jon wants to put them on yet another reality show and that's his new Divorced Dad show that he says is in the works.

Pattypanda said...

If you enlarge the pic of Cara coming out of the nail salaon, her nails are misshappen and not equal in length, the index finger is much shorter. She probably just got to watch mommy dearest get her manny/pedi and water. Cara got the usual nothing.

grannyoftwo said...

Kate probably wouldn't give her a drink of her water..."wait til you get home Cara, you wouldn't like the taste of my water anyway, it is not regular water, it is grown-up water, for big girls who need to stay calm for all these p-people."

NewWester said...

Does anyone find it strange that with the exception of Kate's brother and sister in-law. Not one family member from either side has commented on the divorce and all the media frenzy?
I have not even seen or heard of any of the tabloids saying a "un named family member said..." Considering how the tabloids like to stretch the truth we would have at least heard that.
Even though from what I understand that Jon and in particular Kate have distanced themselves from their extended family not one member has made any comment? No one has come to the defense of either party. The only ones making comments or being seen around Jon and Kate are those that are either connected with TLC or people KOM met after they started the show
Does make a person wonder what the children will consider what a proper "family" is when they grow up and look to create their own. Both Jon and Kate will have alot to answer for in the coming years

MyLittleCat said...

THIS is the story RadarOnline is trying to cover up. They mistaked Cara for Mady in the story about Kate leaving the nail salon.

http://origin.radaronline.com/exclusives/2009/08/photos-mady-gosselins-beauty-shop-meltdown

Radar always tries to show Kate in a good light. This story was posted, but now it takes a google search to find it.

I have been reading post here for some days now, on and off, as I had surgery and have had the time/patience to do so. Some thoughts have occured to me as I have been reading that I would like to share. I have never "blogged" so bear with me.

One of the very first things that occurs to me is the absolute utter fascination with this family. As people have posted before, A) they are not celebs, B) they are not talented, C) they are not from a prominate family, D)they have no class!
Today I read more the my fill about Caras finger nails.Really? I read some where that every time we click on a story, it tallies up.. makes me wonder why so many people are so interested in a strangers nails? And why would any of us want to add more "clicks" to their lives? Sounds a bit huffy on my part maybe, but I just am having the hardest time with this behavior. The parents are terrible, no doubt, the kids are going thru a very bad time, no doubt. Worse then the average kid in a divorce situation? ( minus p-people and such?) I dont think so. The feelings must be similar for all kids. And some (gasp?) may even have had a worse time of it as thier folks got divorced. Physical abuse, verbal, there are way worse things then a divorced family.

I am so tired of all this attention to this family. I dont care if Kate gets a pedicure, and, none of us has a clue why Cara was crying, its all speculation on our parts. I do believe that MOST of what we read or see (in pice) is up for our speculation. Give ten people the same picture and most will read into it what they see from their perspective. Same here.
I sure have alot more to do then debate within myself what the heck these people are up to all the time. I simply dont care. Right down to finger nails!

I DO care, however about things in my own neighborhood.I know a family currently that has seven children ( no nannies, sitters or body guards) three dogs and two parents. That makes them about equal with Gosselins in the ppl department. No, one more child!Plus an extra dog. They are both out of work, one car is broken down, they just applied for emergency food stamps and help with the gas bill as they are so very far behind, and its getting colder in Michigan. My heart goes out to them, and the millions in their shoes. My time and help and focus is there.. not on all the gosselin drama. Thanks for lisenting!

fidosmommy said...

It's difficult to paint an entire scenario from one or two still pictures. Cara is clearly upset, but we sure don't know why. Maybe she didn't get what she wanted in there, or Kate told her they were not going to stop by Starbucks on the way home. We don't know.

As far as Kate seeming disinterested in Cara's distress, there are times when it is better to ignore tears than to make a big
deal out of them.

Who knows, in this case, Kate may be handling the situation with a calm, rational response to a child's words or actions.

There's always a first time, yes?

I think too much is being made out of these RadarOnline pictures, that's all.

chesterctymom said...

It looks like Cara didn't have anything done at the nail salon. She is wearing Crocs out, which wouldn't work if she just had a pedicure. And her finger nails don't look as if they were polished.

ANNA said...

But if she did things like that, then people would complain about that too. So she simply can't win.

----------------------------------
If Kate performed tasks in private (instead of placing a picnic table on the driveway to be photographed), then people would see that she was trying in some way to live a "normal" life and trying to respect her children's privacy (whatever's left of it).

Dragging her kids to the spa so she can be photographed with them is exploitive.

At least if she were to get an esthetician to visit her at home, we would be none the wiser AND THERE WOULD BE ONE LESS THING TO PHOTOGRAPH AND COMMENT ABOUT.

But that's not her goal is it now?

realitybites said...

'paps can make a bundle on big name celebs. kate, jon and the 8 are not big names celebs.'

I agree. I am not convinced that the so called 'p-people' that are providing the day to day updates on the goings on of Kate Gosselin are equal to the paparazzi that are out to get that scandelous celebrity money $$$ shot. Photos of Kate Gosselin and her children at the Konpound are obviously not hard to come by and hardly scandel worthy 'news' therefore IMO, their purpose clearly self serving and their intent to keep Kate's name and face and ongoing topic of interest. Considering the absence of paparrazi photo evidence of the cop calling drama ie scandelous behavior that went down at the Konpound last week, IMO its pretty safe to say that the REAL paparrazi have bigger and better fish to fry!!

Clean your cookies out and see if the pics are still there when you go back. I just checked again and the series that was there this morning is not there. The set on the 2nd or 3rd page is from yesterday.

If I am incorrect someone please provide the link for me to go directly to because my computer is not finding them. Thanks!

Just saw pics of Kate on Gossip Girl from yesterday and she was in bright pink and black work out clothes running errands on her own like she had not a care in the world. Smiling and going to Ulta, tan salon, etc.

How many "single" mothers of 8 get to leave the house on their own to go to the grocery store let alone the tanning salon and cosmetic store.

I am sorry, but Khate is not a struggling single mother no matter how much they spin it.

My heart breaks for those kids. All they know is babysitters, nannys, production staff and cameras... Mom and Dad pop in to visit on occasion. Makes me sick.

Terri said...

"... So if Jon ever wants to take the kids off the show, he will lose just like Charlie Sheen. It's not a pleasant thought..."

When has anyone EVER heard Jon say he wants the kids off the show?? When has anyone EVER heard him say he wants the show to stop? When has anyone EVER heard him say he thinks the kids are hurt by the show?

NEVER!! You only hear him say He wants off the show, HE can't just be himself.

Jon wants the show to go on, just without him. He wants to create this snowboarder-Vegas party host image based on the "celebrity" he gained on the backs of his kids.

He is always saying how this is great for the kids, how normal it is to them to be filmed, and how they are just fine doing what they are doing.

Jon and Kate both make me sick.

Cara looks like she either just sneezed,or the chemical smell from the nail place is bugging her. I'm not a fan of 8 year olds getting their nails done, but I really doubt she's as miserable as many are making her out to be.



Cara looked extremely unhappy going in and she looks even more unhappy coming out.

here's the link to the pictures were removed. i think they received alot of negative comments & were replaced! i am glad they were for mady's sake, but why else would they have been removed SO quickly unless the comments were not pro-kate. i don't know why mady was crying, but the point is, it should be private. kate doesn't care! she just doesn't want anything posted if it does not make her look like a "perfect" mother! imho.

Marie-Claire said...
She's had those nails since she was 6 or 7. Inappropriate or not, she's probably used to them enough by now not to injure herself or anyone else. On the list of things that qualify as poor-parenting on Kate's part, letting Cara have long nails is pretty far down the list. She seems to be a sweet kid, and if having ladylike nails makes her feel good about herself, that's fine. Lord knows she doesn't have much else in her life to make her feel good about herself. Anyway pictures from late spring she didn't have them so long, so probably it's a summer thing and she'll have to cut them back when school starts. Maybe that's even why she was crying, maybe she was supposed to get them done at the salon but she put up too much of a fuss.

The really main point is, this little girl's nails or her crying or her life shouldn't be on display for the whole world to see and speculate about.


I would agree with this, but doesn't Cara play a lot of sports? I know she's really athletic and there are pictures of her playing lacrosse with Jon. I think she might also play soccer. I think it's actually really dangerous to have her nails that long especially if she's playing any kind of sport. I worry for other kids...not her really. She might just break a nail, but those nails could really scratch up a kid.

Dunwoody Mom said...

Kate was in NO WAY shielding Cara coming out of that nail salon. Shoot, Kate was holding her water bottle, her purse and her shoes. Kate looked like she was going to go off on Cara as soon as they got away from the paps.

Really, how can some people still take up for Kate Gosselin even with the proof right under their eyes? I hope these people do not have children.

Dunwoody Mom said...

It's difficult to paint an entire scenario from one or two still pictures. Cara is clearly upset, but we sure don't know why. Maybe she didn't get what she wanted in there, or Kate told her they were not going to stop by Starbucks on the way home. We don't know.

A picture is worth a thousand words. Cara was not happy about accompanying her mother on ANOTHER PR run. Cara was even unhappier coming out of the salon? Cara did not get either a manicure or a pedicure. Her mother dragged her along for the continuing "let make Kate look like a good mother" charade.

It's stupidly nauseating. The woman seriously has no life. With all the time she spends pimping herself out to the 'p'people, she could be doing something GOOD for the less fortunate. (and I'm not just speaking about her children).
I'm heading over to the gossip sites to click on the Brangelina pictures. At least they do some good and we could push their views up a bit.

NewWester said...
Does anyone find it strange that with the exception of Kate's brother and sister in-law. Not one family member from either side has commented on the divorce and all the media frenzy?
I have not even seen or heard of any of the tabloids saying a "un named family member said..." Considering how the tabloids like to stretch the truth we would have at least heard that.
Even though from what I understand that Jon and in particular Kate have distanced themselves from their extended family not one member has made any comment? No one has come to the defense of either party.
****************

Which leads me to believe that it was Kate's family who dumped her and not the other way around. It's really the only conclusion.

Jenny said...

I visited the link (http://tinyurl.com/lky67s) provided by Laurie... radaronline can't get anything right! First they say it's Cara who had the meltdown and then they say it's Mady crying.

"Kate Gosselin took one of her eldest twins Mady for a day of pampering at a local salon--while it started looking like mother-daughter fun, new pics reveal a major meltdown from Cara after their treatment."

Sooo... wait... she took Mady but Cara had the meltdown?

Then:

"Mady, sporting some serious nails for an 8-year-old, wipes tears away as a concerned Kate escorts her to the car."

Oh so now it's Mady again that had the meltdown?

First off, it's pathetic that radaronline stoops to the level of stalking innocent children (especially those in reality tv). But they can't even do their awful job right!

I really just think that Cara and Mady look sad or angry in the pics we see that are taken by the paps because they're tired of seeing strangers pointing cameras at them. They can't even walk out their front door or go for a walk in town with their parents without hearing the sound of clicking cameras, it probably drives them nuts.
They're probably sensitive to the fact that they know their mom hates it too.

A real mother doesn't leave her children behind and go to nail salon, hair salon, tanning center, mall, and gym.

That's not called running errands. That's called being selfish. It's all about pampering herself. It's not about her kids. Kate is not a true mother.

Nail salon is unnecessary for a mother who needs to take care of her kids. Tanning center, that's just hilarious. What's wrong with being white? Obviously her priority is not her kids. It's how she looks. Too bad she still is not pretty after all the work including plastic surgery.

I'd Talk Forever said...

Cara had to be pushed aside. Mom wanted to move to the big house. Cara had to give up friends in school and go to a new school.

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

No, she didn't. She and Mady are in the same school system where they always have been. They did not transfer to another school when they moved.

Aunt Chris said...

If Cara and Mady "know their mom is sensitive" to the paps taking pictures they should tell her to stop alerting them whenever she's going somewhere. Too bad mom is not sensitive to the needs of her kids.

And the bag Cara is carrying out of the salon is the one Kate was carrying INTO the salon, so I doubt it was a special treat for Cara.

Kate never misses an opportunity to parade those children around out in full public view. It doesn't seem to concern her, in the least, that most of the time they appear depressed or sullen.

PaMa said...

Maybe Kate is doing the nails/tanning thing to get tuned up for her speaking engagement next week in Texas. But, why does she schedule these excursions during her time with the children? Wouldn't it make more sense to do them when it's Jon's time with the kids? Unless, of course, Ste. Kate intentionally schedules them when she's home so that she has an excuse to get out of the house ... away from her children ... and gets a photo op, to boot.

Cara relates more to Jon, her Dad. Kate is fussy and Cara like Jon's relaxed attitude. i bet she suffers greatly when her Dad is not around. since they moved she seems very unhappy and looks a lot thinner

Okay that's not true. My 1hour a day at the gym is the least that I can do for myself after spending the other 23 hours a day taking care of my 3 kids. Being a good mom means taking care of me too.

If I were Kate, I would not move to a different school district and transfer Cara. That's the least thing I would do for a good caring girl like Cara.

Also correct me if I'm wrong I thought that the twins stayed in the same private school when they moved? Did I misunderstand?If I were Kate, I would not move to a different school district and transfer Cara. That's the least thing I would do for a good caring girl like Cara.

The girls (and now the tups) go to Private school and did not transfer schools when they moved. The twins have been going to the same school as before the move. This isn't even an issue.

A picture is worth a thousand words. Cara was not happy about accompanying her mother on ANOTHER PR run.

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

We don't KNOW that from the picture. Just like last week, people thought that the picture of Kate, Jon and the kids at the Konpound revealed some big confrontation between the parents in front of the kids. Then the video of the same scene was posted, and we saw that a picture that looked like Kate yelling and gesturing, "What about me?" was actually Kate adjusting her shirt while calmly exchanging a few brief words with Jon.

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but many of those thousand words may be wrong/misinterpretations.

Oh, and by the way, Kate went into the shop carrying that little bag.
My bet is that it has her own manicure/pedicure items in it. I don't think it was anything for Cara that they purchased that day.

Cara's Meltdown:

I just saw the pics of little Cara at the nail salon with her Khateful mom.

Looks like Cara did not get her nails done (there is a close-up which shows them in their, shall we say, natural state with all different sizes and one completely torn down).

I don't think Cara got her nails done.
Maybe that's why she's crying.

Her evil, selfish mom dragged her along and made her sit there while Kween KHate had hers done.

She's such an evil bitch!

(she may also be crying because of the paps, but that's even worse.
Khhhhhatful could stop all that by stopping the show so people would lose interest, but she's such a selfish bitch....she won't!)

********
I hope so too, but I suspect most are like the 15 year girl commenting on her fake blog recently begging Hate to email her. They don't have kids, just live vicariously through KON. I can't see how anyone could conclude looking at the pictures (that were still linked to the site although off to the side) that Hate was shielding anyone from anything. She looked annoyed and Cara was clearly crying. I've seen her crying enough on the show to know what she looks like crying. She was not the least bit happy. My theory is that Hate wanted them to fix her nails since they are pointed and uneven but Cara refused and got nothing done. What mother, though, is not capable of just filing her child's nails at home? It does NOT take going out in front of the dreaded p-people to a salon!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I have thought the same thing, it really actually makes me mad that other family is not stepping in for the sake of the kids, but then again, I wont judge them not knowing the whole story. But I am thinking, that the rest of the family knows that Khate is a lost cause, and that they would just be drug along with the kids. Parents have alot of say, it is very hard to override them. I have been trying to take my neices away from my sister in law for years. (too many details to talk about), and even tho she is ruining those kids, my husband(her brother) & I cant really do anything. It is very frustrating to sit back and watch them, not go to school, and let to run loose and not have a parent. Anyway, it does still make me mad that these kids are props in a grand money scheme, but there must be ALOT behind the scenes that we dont see. I pray everyday for those 8 kids. Isnt that sad when you consider that Ihave only seen them throught the magic of TV and I care more about them than their own *cough* mother and *cough* father? ={

Not a fan of either said...

Anyone who believes Jon is an "incredible father" needs to go back and watch A Walk In The Woods, or the Outer Banks episode where he yelled at the children so loud he could be heard outside the closed van. There are other episodes where you can pick up on his parenting skills. Sure he did all the work. That's because Kate told him to. If Jon were an incredible father he would not be up to his current antics. It's a moral issue. Dating quietly and privatly would probably not be an issue. But what he's doing is bound to impact the children that he's so incredibly fond of.

And yes, I too find it odd that no one in Kate's family has come forward even to defend her! That, to me, is just baffling. If I were being constantly criticized, my family would be all over the media. I just don't get it.

Too much crying said...

I was just thinking about the birthday episode where Cara was seen crying her eyes out. I kind of feel she is too old for all this crying in public. Don't come after me becaue I do feel sorry for all the children, but is it just possible that Cara cries or melts down when she doesn't get her way? We all know that Mady has her own way of expressing her dislike of any given situation. Maybe crying is Cara's. Just playing the devil's advocate and I, like you, could be completely wrong since after all we are just speculating.

Dunwoody Mom said...

That's irrelevant really. If Kate claims that's their normal it really doesn't prove that it IS their normal. We all know that just because she says something it's not necessarily true. I don't for a second believe that the kids are ok with the paps following them around.

A real mother doesn't leave her children behind and go to nail salon, hair salon, tanning center, mall, and gym.

I totally agree. I was a "real" mother and had my first manicure and pedicure the day after my father's death which was a long battle to the end. I needed some "me' time, something I never got, and treated myself.The first thing the girl said to me upon looking at my nails was, "you have been under alot of stress and it shows in your hands."

As for tanning, when my kids were young I always was tan in the summer cause I was outside playing and watching my kids, camping and going to the beach. It was all "real" not fake. I got plenty of exercise and did not need to go to a gym. The only gym I was in was the school gyms to watch my kids participate in all forms of sports and activities. That is something we have never seen Kate do.

Money was tight and mall shopping was out of the question. I shopped sales and used consignment shops well.

Just had to comment on how "real people live as opposed to this totally "fake reality Mom" ????

Save the Gosseling 8 from all of this "fake reality" TLC take them off the air now!!!

no family to calm them said...

I agree with the person that spoke about the twins crying. I felt the same way. For almost 9 year olds they BOTH do a lot of crying, its always been mostly Mady, but now its Cara also. Kate must not speak with them and assure them. I don't know if its a stage, or just a bratty cycle they are in because of ALL the attention from EVERYONE. Everyone but family..and I don't mean Jon and Kate.

I've also heard that Kate is a "caller". That's why she's always dressed to the 9's when the paps "catch" her out and about.

No "girl time" there said...

I Luv Twins, I appreciate that you feel that Kate and Cara had "girl time", but all I saw was a sad, miserable and crying youngster that would probably have rather been with friends on a Saturday, or at home.
Maybe we're not seeing it the same.
I DID see the original photos and in no way did Kate 'shield' anything but her bottle of water, her shoes and her cellphone. Plus ROL is PRO-Kate so they try to soften her, but still the pictures speak louder then words.

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

We really have absolutely NO way of knowing what any people in the extended family have tried or not tried. We don't know what phone calls come and go, or letters, or even visits. Though the paparazzi are around them much of the time, they are not there 24/7.

Jon says Kate's parents aren't in any of their children or grandchildren's lives, but we do know her parents kept the twins when she was in the hospital while pg with the tups.

We can't verify that kind of thing, can we? My mother lives many miles away and we rarely see her, but she is very much a part of our lives.

CLG said...

"That is one ugly dress Cara is wearing--poor thing."

Such a lame comment. It's a simple, cotton summer dress. Calling her a "poor thing" doesn't soften the comment. Calling a kid's dress ugly? Since when do kids need to meet some stranger's fashion standards? Lame.

NewWester said...

A few years ago when the reality show "The Osbournes" was the on the air, whenever the eldest daughter Aimee was in the camera shot her face was digitally covered. From what I understand she did not want to be seen on television, but since she still lived at home they had to work around that. My point is since Mady and Cara are at the age where they are finding problems with being on television and want some privacy. Why can't the same thing be done for them?
The sextuplets have grown up with all the cameras and people around , but the twins did not. If this show continues they will have to somehow shorten or not flim Mady and Cara at all.
When a parent's actions start to affect their children most people would stop and make some changes. KON just sees dollar signs, both
should realize that the dreaded teen years are fast approaching. If they think kids crying over nail polish or wanting a drink of water ( looking at you Kate!)are a pain, just wait.
I can't imagine what it must be like to have cameras following my every move and not having a normal childhood. There is bound to be some resentment among the children and once the trauma/drama of being a teenager kicks in, Kate and Jon are in for a rough ride

CammyInNJ said...

There are so many reasons why a person, mother or not, would allow herself to go to the salon. I'm a mom and have a career where appearance is important. Therefore, I do go to the salon. My friends or my husband babysit. I don't feel like less of a mother because of this. Whether you like it or not, Kate is in front of cameras. I don't blame her for going to the salon. There is no one definition of what a good mom is. In my opinion, moms who have cars full of children and talk on their cell phones are not good moms. Some of you may disagree. That's the beauty of an "opinion." Kate has major issues, yes, but I don't think her going to the salon makes her a bad parent. Other things, yes, but not this one. It's trivial.

Kellie said...

What I don't understand is why this madness continues.

If Kate and Jon had one shred of love and concern for their children, they would kick the cameras out and deal with their issues.

And furthermore, it disgusts me that people are placing the children under scrutiny (i.e. the people who call Maddy a ***** just because she has a meltdown).

The fact of the matter is that these children have no say in anything that happens to them. So their very understandable reaction is to meltdown. It's the only thing available to them.

They do not belong in the spotlight under such intense circumstances.

TLC will not hold themselves responsible for this train wreck of a show. So we need to hold ourselves responsible and quit watching or commenting. Because in TLC's world, the more buzz that is created about the show (good or bad) the faster the train wreck travels until nothing is left.

At this point, I have nothing good to say about either J or K. They have made it more than apparent that everything they do is for themselves and not their children. Despite what they say.

IGNORE KON AND THEY'LL GO AWAY said...

TLC is FULLY aware of how abusive and universally hated Khate is, but they want and need her to be awful so the ratings are higher! The more we talk about her the longer TLC will keep this 'show' going.

I suspect USWeekly and Radaronline.com are in on this scam.

The whole world needs to turn its back on Jon and Khate and just IGNORE them until they go away.

Jenny said...

People on here are freaking out over the fact that Kate is being cut down because she went to a salon. It's not the ONE ACT of going to the salon that is the problem - it's her constantly being gone that is the problem. When she's not away for "work" reasons then she's away to grab Starbucks or shop or get her nails done.

A normal mother (working or stay-at-home) needs and deserves a day off to herself once in awhile. But Kate gets that special treatment all of the time. She has nannies care for her children, chefs make her meals, hired help clean and care for her home. She can certainly skip a day at the spa to "pamper herself" in order to spend some quality time with her children who are currently being raised by nannies. If she needs to have her nails done so badly then she can certainly hire someone to do it at her home (while the hired help takes care of everything, of course).

----believe its called spending money. Seems like k must be out on a daily basis to spend.
Her folks did keep the twins prior to the sups coming - think the problem arose with the matching cribs etc. K wanted money - folks and their congregations wanted to
provide goods, unmatching.

"vl said...

I would agree with this, but doesn't Cara play a lot of sports? I know she's really athletic and there are pictures of her playing lacrosse with Jon. I think she might also play soccer. I think it's actually really dangerous to have her nails that long especially if she's playing any kind of sport. I worry for other kids...not her really. She might just break a nail, but those nails could really scratch up a kid."

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

Schools and leagues have rules about nail length for that reason. So either Cara isn't playing team sports during the summer, or else she isn't really "the sporty twin" at all...and it's just another example of fakery and scripting, like the way they edit to make Mady out to be "the bratty twin".

AZMom said...

Khate has to go back to her old (real) persona. The show is losing ratings big time because people don't believe the "can-do single/loving mom" persona. It's not working Khate. They are probably showing reruns this week becasue they need to re-edit the footage that they've already got to show the old khate. At this point they're damned if they do and damned if they don't. But TLC has seen that this new Khate is NOT markatable.

Re: the Roloffs. Nobody is making
Jeremy, Zachary, Molly or Jacob do one thing that is age inappropriate, eat what they don't like, be on camera in the house if they want to be outside kicking a ball around, or avoid having friends over. While there may be some contractual thing that says they have to stop for an interview moment for the camera, the rest of what we see truly looks like the camera is just catching their everyday life. Nothing seems posed or scripted to me.

If America is wanting to peek in on how a family works with 3 teens and a tween in the house, this would be the one to watch. One lesson to glean from LPBW might be "Moms and Dads! Take Note! Your job is not over when they get out of diapers! They still need parenting by their parents!"

KateIsATranny said...

Khate = venomous pig

That is all.

concerned said...

Looks like a new batch of TLC interns has arrived! The sudden interest in defending the indefensible is way too obvious.

In the real world, there is no way to excuse putting your children in front of any cameras for your own personal gain. No excuse whatsoever. No reason whatsoever. There are countless people in the public eye, be it the arts, sports or politics, who have managed to raise children who have never had photos of their day-to-days activities plastered all over the various medias.

These parents have chosen to exploit their children in order to make money. That is what is going on when these children are films and/or photographed. There is no other way to look at any of their actions. They are not good parents. This must end.

check this out said...

Check out the gosselins.sosugary site and look at the most recent additions. I have read several comments regarding the fact that the family looks unhappy and the children are never smiling. Well, someone is reading the post because it looks like they must have searched back through old pictures to find the family (all children smiling) well they must have to had to search long and hard because several of the photos look edited even to a novice like myself. They are good for a giggle!

Jenny said...
People on here are freaking out over the fact that Kate is being cut down because she went to a salon. It's not the ONE ACT of going to the salon that is the problem - it's her constantly being gone that is the problem. [...]

--------

I agree with everything you said. There's nothing wrong with a mother treating herself to a day out, but Kate NEVER spends any real quality time with those kids unless the TLC cameras are rolling. If TLC isn't filming it's all about Kate going out & doing whatever Kate wants. If the kids are there it's always for a pap photo-op & they always have these hang-dog miserable looks on their faces like they don't wanna be there.

And what exactly is there that Kate needs a break FROM anyway?? Spending hours glamming herself up for the paps? Texting on her cellphone all day & taking phone calls about which new freebie she's gonna get? It must get so stressful for her fielding calls all day about which dream vacation she's gonna go on next, or which room in her mansion is going to have the next renovation. Maybe she'll be getting solid gold toilets installed next week. ::eyeroll::

Don't insult us said...

Don't forget, a couple weeks ago Kate "put in a screen" all by herself! ARE THEY KIDDING ME! They cannot recycle her. We already KNOW who and what she is. PLEASE.

silimom said...

If Cara plays sports she might have just been told she'd need to cut her nails and that could have set her off. Or, Kate could have worked her up by telling her the "p-people" were outside. Or maybe she didn't get to have a design put on her nails. Or she was just having a bad moment and unfortunately (because of her parents) has no personal privacy. It's hard to speculate because we're not mind readers. Those nails are heckuv long, though! Too long for a kid her age but that's my opinion.

Was TLC filming, does anyone know?

katrinac said...

Just a thought - the bag that Cara was carrying out of the nail salon was the same Bell Tower bag that Kate carried in.

Looking at those pictures - it appears that Kate had a fresh highlight and spike put on that possum. And that crime is committed at the Bell Tower.

So - conceivably - not only did Cara have to sit through the mani-pedi - she had probably already sat through a few hours at the Bell Tower watching them work that magic mess on Mommy's 'do.

Hell - I'd cry too.

Tazz said...

There is something really fishy about Radar online. If you look at other pictures and stories, they have 0-4 comments but when it's J/K the comments reach from 100-300. Honestly, something's up there.

Watch who your clicking said...

I think something is fishy with radar also, that's why when I go on to see anything about j&K, I first click any random story about anyone just to get a count for another celebrity. Radar counts each and every click on a particular photo, and THAT'S the one their paps will persue. So when we all go on there to see J&K they make them a priortiy.

Mia said...

I also noticed that more and more of them are in Kates favor too. They too seem to really knock Jon down when they can. Of the two BAD parents Jon is the best in my opinion.

jasmine said...

Radar Online gets hundreds of comments on anything Gosselin by a handful of bloggers who argue and repeat the same thing for hours. That's why they put so much up about them. It doesn't matter who or what the content is about. They could probably post photos of the dogs and get at least 100 comments.

pinkdiamond611 said...

Here is the thing. What else does Khate do besides go to the tanning salon, the nail place, or the hair place or on some dopey trip with the kids wearing costumes and matchy matchy clothes? Or sit in the driveway in her white throne. Not to stick up for tool, but we saw him take all eight kids skiing, we saw him ride bikes and roller blade with the kids.

Good point!
The recent shots of the kids shucking corn on the picnic table show kate hauling out her mail and magazines out with the bags of corn.
Looks like she was really wanting to participate in the family activity.
I'm sure she took a break from herself to take part in interacting with her kids for the few minutes it took to film her "scene."

Meanwhile....it was likely back to work for the kids.

Unhappy Children.... said...

I really just think that Cara and Mady look sad or angry in the pics we see that are taken by the paps because they're tired of seeing strangers pointing cameras at them.

But Kate claims that is their normal...."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Actually, I have to totally disagree!!
In nearly every new episode, the kids look horribly miserable!!

I watched a few of the newer episodes on Youtube (NOT TLC...HA!)
and aside from the down-in-the-dumps Mady all slumped over waiting for her dad and cara to have "fun" at the indoor rock climbing place....she was downright miserable looking when they were in go carts.

The adults were all smiles and at least pretending to have a good time.
That Mady was actually FROWNING!!

This is shot by TLC...NOT the paps!!

There is not the normal running around, having fun, laughing, squealing, giggling child's laughter out of a single one of those children.

That is NOT normal and extremely sad!

Radaronline, we're on to you said...

Radaronline seems to be on a mission to keep J&K relevant, as they appear to be the online site providing daily coverage of Hate's daily activities (and the ratings continue to fall). And since it seems that they are decidedly pro-Kate, I guess her minions are trying to earn their keep.

Jon's New Reality Show said...

Just a thought!

If the "Divorced Dads" reality gig doesn't work out for Jon...he always has a shot at the "Biggest Loser" (in more ways than one...LOL!)


Hey....at least it would get his kids off the air!

stopthemadness said...

Poor Cara, my God. She cannot have a private moment and it looks like Kate could not care less.

Radar online can't be bothered to figure out which twin it is and I had to shake my head at their depiction of this super fun mom and girl day when the girl have of this fun couple is in tears, and to describe Kate as "concerned" - are they having a laugh? Kate couldn't look less concerned as her little minion trails behind her carrying her bag.

It is so odd that the family hasn't come out to say anything - could be that they can't say anything nice, so won't say anything at all - for fear it'd harm their chances to EVER get to be in the kids' lives.

What would be wonderful would be in on Jon's weeks, he invited Kate's family over as well as his own.

Where's THEIR share said...

Photos on line today show Jon arriving at the house with all the kids running up to him into his arms. The dogs were excited too. What I saw was that all the kids look unkempt. Stragly hair, messy clothing, Cara looking messy, almost appearing in old and unclean clothing. What's going on. For millionare kids, they are NOT getting the same perks that Kate affords herself.

Frequent Poster said...

Where's THEIR share,

I completly agree with you and have wondered the same exact thing.

The children look as if they woke up and put on the first thing that they could find.

Doesn't look like Kate even ran a comb through their hair.

Im_in_PR said...

To the poster "Unhappy Children"

Trust me, you know it's not normal for Kate to pimp her kids out to photographers, I know it's not normal, but Kate claims that that gross abnormality is somehow "normal."


It ain't.

Just have to say... said...

I'm a mom of a 3-1/2 year old girl and 17-month old twin boys. And I'll be damned if I can get my contacts in, my hair in a ponytail, and some random clothes thrown together at the start of my day. If I can accomplish that much, the day is off to a good start.

So, how Kate manages to have her hair and make-up done, her hooker shoes showing off her pedicure (because her toes are hanging off them -- you need to move up a half-size, Kate), and her one-size-too-small baby-doll dress with coordinating sunglasses absolutely blows my mind.

I'm a PhD, former college professor who has chosen to stay at home with my little brood. And it's an overwhelming, self-less, more-than-full-time job! My hair is most often in a pony tail, my clothes are usually stained, and my nails are cut short so as not to scratch the kids.

Bottom line: Kate is NOT a hands-on mom. I know what it takes to raise a singleton and a set of twins. There's no way she can look so good and have as much free time as she does if she's raising higher order multiples.

The show is a scam. The Gosselins are lyers and users. I attended one of their church-sponsored events last year out of curiosity. They are nothing but moochers who will say whatever they need to say to make a buck. I walked out when the minister asked for everyone to contribute to a love offering (just so happens they were moving in to their McMansion the very same month - although this would not be revealed for months, once the show caught up with "reality").

These are greedy and stupid people who will stop at nothing to make money. They don't care about their kids or each other, and it's clear that the only ones who will suffer and lose out from this whole travesty are the Gosselin 8. Those poor kids.

Shame on Jon and Kate and TLC for exploiting these poor kids. What a soul-less trio you all are.

Gwen said...

Just have to say..... To be fair when kate's kids were 3 and 17 months she did look like a mom who barely had time to brush her teeth. It gets easier to make time for yourself when the kids get older and start becoming more independent.

The kids need attention too said...

Lets not mince words here. I see certain posters that are liking very much to be confrontational, and this is truly not our goal here. If someone says grey, they say white, someone says green they'll say no, yellow,then they'll say Kate is a good Mom, 'look she was seen with Cara', when the long time viewers KNOW this to be false. I do want to agree with Frequent Poster however, Yes we've discussed it many times before and a number of posters agree that the kids do look unkempt as of late. Not the days when the nanny did their hair in braids and bows or up in a twist. Lately the kids look as though they are on their own and no one gives a darn. Your right about Cara, I notice it the mostly with her. But many look right out of bed, as in photos from months back that we brough up. Definatly a difference that they are NOT getting what they truly earn.

Somethings missing said...

I Luv Twins, No the photos were not the ones on ROL. You mentioned you were new to this site, so maybe you haven't seen previous posts of the kids, that many have previously talked about. There is something amiss with the kids.

Kate was in NO WAY shielding Cara coming out of that nail salon. Shoot, Kate was holding her water bottle, her purse and her shoes. Kate looked like she was going to go off on Cara as soon as they got away from the paps.

Really, how can some people still take up for Kate Gosselin even with the proof right under their eyes? I hope these people do not have children.

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

Oh my! Are you talking about me? I was referring to the pics that were taken down. I was sharing my perspective on pics you must have missed.

On to the next set of pics. Kate in pink, ready for a run (but first a tan.) I don't go to tanning salons. I hope I can still keep my kids, lol!

Are these the ROL photos? I really must be missing something. I see five photos, two of which show the children. Are there any other photos at another online site because I'm just not seeing messy hair, old and unclean clothing? These kids look like all kids this age on a very, hot, and very, very humid day...kids who have been playing outside.
Where is the other site that shows this?
Thanks!

1momski said...

I think that what is most evident in all the pictures of these childen as of late is how sad and depressed they appear. I find it heartbreaking to see their faces. These children are at risk. It does not seem that they have anyone there for them anymore and they lack any nurturing.

1momski said...

These poor children look so sad and depressed, like they have the weight of the world on their shoulders. It doesn't seem that they are ever happy or carefree, like children should be

kate is a cocky bitch said...

Why does Queen-Kate look so trampy in these pictures? She looks like a street hooker and it's disgraceful, not cute. Someone really needs to smack some sense into that greedy, money-hungry freeloader.

tcalp130 said...

Please don't take this as confrontational....but the children do not look "unkempt" to me either in the new ROL photos (The ones when Jon comes home on Sunday). I know some of you are concerned about the decline in their appearance, so I am just throwing this out there....Are they looking more like kids who are playing hard on their big property with woods, etc? In Elizabethtown they had a smaller yard and were also younger and were they maybe less likely to engage in this rougher type play? Just a thought.

Lower Heidelberg Neighbor said...

TLC arranged for the kids and Jon to visit the Lower Heidelberg Fire Co. on Monday 8/24. After the fire co suggested that a donation might be appropriate, TLC decided that the kids will sell lemonade out front at 5:00. So once again, TLC and the parents profit, and the kids work.

Lower Heidelberg Neighbor said...

Re the Kate Major story. http://thesuperficial.com/2009/08/kate_major_jon_gosselin_wooed.php#comment
I tried to post this in their comments section but my submission failed. Here it is:

I would like comments.

I can cast doubt on the truth of this woman's claims easily. I am a neighbor of the Gosselin household and have lived here for over 20 years. We are a small close knit neighborhood.

1. There is not one neighbor who would not call the police IMMEDIATELY if there was a strange car parked in their driveway.
2. There is no on street or public parking within at least 1 1/2 miles of the Gosselin house. These are rural roads with little shoulder.
3. The Gosselins have not attempted to make or get to know one neighbor in the area. There is NOBODY who Jon would have been friendly enough with to say...."Hey can my girlfriend park here."
4. There is not one house toward the back of their property within ATV distance that is not secluded or would not call the police if there was a strange car in their driveway. That means he would have to drive his ATV on the road, taking the risk of passing the photogs who crop up a couple of times a week.
Doubt her story.

NoUse4Kate said...

In thinking about it, I think Radar just posts those stupid ass comments to get a reaction out of people. They know people hate khate and how better to get a reaction and site hits out of people than by posting disgustingly sweet & pro khate comments.

Maybe someone here can be the designated person to save pics and upload them to a Photobucket account for everyone else to look at. Like you/we do with TLC, do not click on their links and give them the hits they want. I'm done with them. I quit watching TLC and it is much easier not clicking on ROL site than it was giving up some of my favorite shows on TLC outside of J&K+8.

Mindy said...

This is my first post here. I really can't help but think to myself now that TLC has just become the exploited kids network.

Jon and Kate, 18 kids and counting (though that's not to the same degree at all) and what about shows like "Toddlers and Tiaras"? Ridiculous. Or maybe TLC just wants to exploit kids who's parents are ok with the exploitation? Anyway you look at it, I remember being 5 years old. I would just wanna curl up and die if this was my life.

Mary Ann said...

I have read several speculations regarding Radar Online reporting with bias and without accuracy. Well, here is -- at least -- is one bit of evidence that being accurate isn't important. A caption from today says that Jon is at home with dogs and his ride on mower. While most people would say riding mower, that is less important than the fact he is on a 4-wheeler!

Dunwoody Mom said...

fidosmommy said...

Thanks for the opportunity to say that Kate going to the salon might have been fun for them both.


******

OK, say it was fun for Cara too. Why did she look like she was going in for a tooth extraction and came out looking like she had just got a spanking?

I'm not entirely sure "fun" is the word we're looking for here.

Again, we don't KNOW what went on that day. We only have a couple of still pictures. Somehow, though, I suspect Cara would argue
on the NO side of the debate "Was that a fun time at the salon?"

no fan said...

Cara was probably asking for a drink of water from the bottle mom is carrying...but we all know, Kate does not share her drinks.....

no fan said...

Yes, I notice that the kids seem to wear the same clothes everyday, and their hair is not done.

I wonder if the "not a nanny" has been dispatched, because she always has their hair looking nice.

SammysMom said...

Too much crying said...
I was just thinking about the birthday episode where Cara was seen crying her eyes out. I kind of feel she is too old for all this crying in public. Don't come after me becaue I do feel sorry for all the children, but is it just possible that Cara cries or melts down when she doesn't get her way? We all know that Mady has her own way of expressing her dislike of any given situation. Maybe crying is Cara's. Just playing the devil's advocate and I, like you, could be completely wrong since after all we are just speculating.

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

I think all of the kids will be crying/acting out more now that they realize mom and dad won't be living together in the home as a family. All of them will be vying for more attention from the parents when they are with just one of them at a time, and the way kids express their desire for attention isn't always pretty!

Melissa in small town Ohio said...

I find it hard to believe and very strabge that Kate has neve put in a screen. My kids are 11, 12 and 19 and they ALL put in the screens themselves and take them out of their bedrooms... Not a real big deal. How can you reach the age of thirty someting and never have done that?

Could it be that he TOLD her she could park her car in a neighbor's driveway, just to get her there? She would have had no clue that it wasn't true, and no arrangements like that had been made.

re:Lower Heidelberg Neighbor...thanks for speaking up. Your comments certainly make alot of sense. I no longer buy her story either.

pinkdiamond611 said...

Khate's going to be on LKL??? Hmmmm I agree that they are planning some sort of ratings antic, that is why today is a repeat. I am going to venture a guess that JonBoy is going to be fired by TLC. But then if he is "fired" he can do his dating Dads show.

Savethe8G's said...

I don't believe Kate Major's story because of the time frames. When was he at home with the kids with Major in the picture? The first time photographed with her he was in NYC, then days later he showed up in the Hamptons with her. After hanging out in the Hamptons (and he was only photographed with her once, the rest of the time he was w/ Lohan) he returned to Hailey in NYC. By then he was saying it was nothing w/ Major and was always with Hailey. When was he in PA with the possibility of having Major meet up with him there?

I don't buy her stories.

Concerned Canadian Mom said...

"Ignore KON and they will go away" said.....
TLC is FULLY aware of how abusive and universally hated Khate is, but they want and need her to be awful so the ratings are higher! The more we talk about her the longer TLC will keep this 'show' going.

I suspect USWeekly and Radaronline.com are in on this scam.

The whole world needs to turn its back on Jon and Khate and just IGNORE them until they go away.
---------------------------------

I wholeheartedly agree!!!! Perhaps we should have a respite from all the bloggin on here, for a certain time period. Boycott the show, (any of you who still do watch), and then see how this affects ratings. My guess is, they are riding on the wave of all their bad publicity, their antics, actions and public outings, to keep them in the spot-light. Let's change that!!

NT said...

If they fire Jon,can he exercise his right to say the kids can no longer be on camera? And if they fire him,they would not be able to film when he is home with the kids.Of course that's means more free trips for Kate and the kids.

grandma in AZ said...

Yes I too heard that Kate will be on Larry King. I just e-mailed LKL and asked why she is on and told them about the 2 Child Abuse Watch letters sent to Mr. John S. Hendricks of the Discovery communications without a response. I also said she craves attention and that these children are unable to speak for themselves

What on earth could she possibly talk about that she hasnt already addressed in the multiple People magazine interviews, The Today show, Regis etc... OK we got it. J & K are getting a divorce, Kate is in a 'different place' than Jon, she continues to wear her wedding ring for the 'kids'. OK we got it!!! Enough said. FYI to Kate, the media interviews are non-productive, you NEED therapy!!!!

Beach Lover said...

Do not believe the Kate Major story at all. I read it while in line at the grocery today. I also do not believe Jon is sleeping with or carousing with multiple women. That sounds like TLC/ Khate's publicity machine to me.

He isn't the most mature 32 year old man I've ever met, but neither is he the most immature. Some of his youthful behavior with the kids (like letting them get dirty or playing with playdoe) is good for the kids.

I'm not condoning all the money spending either member of Kon is doing and it only interests me as a lawyer because Khate seems to be logging in her expenses prior to a settlement. I believe she may be inflating her expenses in the belief that the judge will have been born yesterday. Jon may also either be spending as fast as he can because of his own immaturity or because of what I believe to be very iffy advice from his lawyer.

Going to a salon as often as Khate has been photographed seems excessive, but I wouldn't care at all except for the fact that she is spending what I believe to be money that the kids earned. They definitely need to have advocates, each child their own.

Go to the Larry King Live website and you can "Ask Kate a question." as well as vote regarding children being on reality tv. Let's just see how many real questions make it to the air... and what type of "fluff" questions do!

silimom said...

They won't fire Jon. That's too much of a hassle. They will keep him on contract for the rest of the season and just not use him in very much footage. Then, when their contract expires, they won't renew it.

I remember as the marital issues were starting to come out, GWOPpers were calling the whole "They'll drop Jon and make it the Kate + 8" show focusing on her life as a single mom" scenario.

Neither one of these two nitwits is worth my energy or time. The kids are. That's why I keep checking out the site. I keep hoping that one day I'll read "J&K+8 CANCELLED!" I appreciate the fact that I can come here and check out the latest tabloid antics as well, rather than going to the sites directly and upping their daily "Hit" points.

Just saw the tummy tuck episode, how ironic that Kate and Jon are given Hailey's bedroom in the Glassman home to recuperate from Kate's surgery, they all such good friends that Kate is encouraged to make an annual visit for girls day out shopping. Wonder if she is still best buds with Mrs. Glassman?

Why is there not a new episode of J and K today? Not that I watch them but the recaps are too funny and I hope I don't have to go without one this week... ;)

I'd Talk Forever said...

You can tweet your questions to kingsthings for Kate on Larry King. I to don't know what she has to talk about it. I'm sure that she is a victim. Funny thing is Kathy Griffin is on tonight too. LOL

Really? I thought it was Kathie Lee Gifford, who supposedly isn't terribly fond of Kate. Where did you hear it was Kathy Griffin?

To those of you who think that Cara and/or Mady "meltdown" or cry too much try to remember all that those girls have to deal with. Such as...

Having a bucketload of siblings dropped on them when they were very little and then having their lives invaded by many volunteers, all there to help care for the 'tups (lost in the shuffle anyone?).

For years they have had no privacy, no quiet, no normalcy, and IMO no normal diet.

Now, as their parents split and the family is readjusting, they are still being filmed, being asked to perform as if all is ok. When they leave the relative safety of their home they are followed by paparazzi, who will scream terrible things to get a "money shot."

Through this all they have no family network, no friends at their home, and no space to deal with what is happening.

If Cara and Mady want to cry, I don't blame them in the least, in fact I am stunned they don't do it more often.
