I think they'll do whatever it takes to stay in the media, regardless of the future consequenses it will cost their kids. With this Today show appearance, Kate is starting the public battle of words with Jon. Whatever happen to keeping this a private matter? They disgust me.

K8 ain't GR8 said...

It's going to be weird for the kids to see pics of Jon holding hands with his girlfriend when they never saw him holding hands with Kate.

Kate also denied and then confirmed the Maryland condo.

It's steps away from Steve's office.

When they break up, she's going to look like a bigger fool.

I stopped watching the show and I recommend we all stage a month-free boycott to see the ratings sink into oblivion.

How much more? said...

I didn't watch last week and surprisingly don't miss it! I get my fill and adequate updates from this blog!

silimom said...

People divorce all the time, unfortunately, for many different reasons and being mature and putting the needs of your children first is often the exception, not the rule. At least from what I've observed.

What is truly sad is that we, as a society, view the public collapse of this family as entertainment. I would hope that this situation would make us, as a society, question why we glorify voyeurism like this. TLC isn't going to pull the show because we, as a society, read the tabloids, watch the gossip shows, blog continually about this couple, etc. We keep them in the news and the message we send is that Jon and Kate are newsworthy and a viable commodity. Ethics in television is sorely lacking, but perhaps it's because we, as a viewing public, do not expect or demand it. I think it's up to us to raise the bar and set the standard for what we will fill our minds with. J&K actually was one of the reasons I really stopped to consider how I wished to spend my time and what I chose to fill my mind with. So I thank TLC for that. I hope more people start doing the same.

Dave in Pittsburgh said...

I read this blog often and find it very enlightening and entertaining. Having said that, I believe that most people's view or opinion of Kate are simply over-analyzed.

Simply stated, Kate is white trash and she constantly needs the attention and finer things in life to compensate for her internal unhappiness. It is actual quite comical to watch Kate be a fake.

NotaKateFan said...

Reuters article, kind of scathing . . .

Lower Heidelberg Neighbor said...

Just a thought.... but if I was going to have to live away from my kids part time I wouldn't be 2 1/2 hours away (Jon in NYC) or 3 hours away (Kate in Rockville) That is insanity. Suppose there was an emergency. Watch out nice Rockville....the paps desendeth!!!

....Maybe the attraction isn't Steve...maybe it's White Flint Mall....

as a side note...one of my friends saw not one, not two, but THREE women with Kate's copy cat hairdo at the Reading Fair here last week...that would be in her kinda sorta now...hometown of Berks...you know...where her kids live....

pinkdiamond611 said...

Wait, Khate admitted she bought the condo? After she publicly stated in People that she would never move away? I can't wait to hear her lie her way out of this one.

ManicNarcissism said...

Kate confirmed the Maryland condo?? How did I miss that? Where is it?

Latest pics on Just Jared of new nanny and Jon are ridiculous. I would be pitching a FIT in this situation if that was the nanny that my ex was providing for our children. A FIT! It will be interesting but I think this arrangement is just until the divorce is final.

RealMom said...

I haven't watched since the winter and I have tried to stop reading the blogs. That is the only way they will go away. I noticed they appear on all the magazines when their ratings seem to be slipping. I saw on Jane Velez Mitchell and on E that they are starting to talk about the Gosselins again. I know this is a ratings scheme set up by their PR people to keep them front and center. I wish people would just not buy into it.

Snap! said...

On Justjared- there is a picture of all the expensive solar lights that were given to them in a pile on the ground next to a basketball net. They do not appreciate anything given to them!

No Drama Mama said...

JustJared has new pics of Jon and the new nanny aka cocktail waitress.

TasteeKake said...

Did Jon really ditch his wedding ring? I caught a commercial where he was managing the cabinet install to only notice a ring on his left hand. I even paused and slow mo'ed it.


Is this all a ratings ruse?

Beach Lover said...

Saw the pictures of Jon, the nanny and her daughter along with the G kids. We've seen a whole lot more of Khate's body (gag) than we are seeing of this young lady who is 10years younger. That said, I get why people aren't enthused about her because of her nude modeling ad.

On the other hand, isn't it good that the G kids are getting to interact with other people and other children? The nanny's little girl is a doll and it looks like the G kids are all into showing her how to ride a bike and in one picture it looks like Collin is showing her a ball. Kids really don't care what your parents do for a living, do they?

It is sad to hear that Khate is moving part-time to Rockville. I will hate her being here and I hope she will hate being here and will move out quickly.

Janice said...

Kate fell for an idiot.
She married & had kids with the idiot.
She tried to change the idiot but got frustrated when she couldn't.
She finally gave up on the idiot.
She let go of the idiot.
Guess what? He's still an idiot and will always be one...

Not-Nearly-a-Nanny said...

Yeah - all the nannys I know have french manicures and pedicures.

She needs a nose job and a boob job. Surely Jon has an in with that - oh, that's right - unfortunatley it's his OTHER girlfriend's dad....

And Jon needs to do something about thoe Flintstone Feet.

Seriously.

TUNDRA said...

Oh please, those pics are obviously staged to help boost ratings for the show. IMO only scandal lovers tune in to the show now, the original fans wised up and are long gone. What's sick is you can slow down and gawk all ya want, there is nothing to see but eight sad kids smiling for the cameras ... hope it's worth it to you.

TUNDRA said...

Kate did not fall for an idiot. She played him for all he was worth then dumped him when she didn't need him anymore. Kate is no victim except of herself.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
While I totally agree with this and I am not attacking anyone, but non of us should be watching. If you watch, you help them. If you dont watch, atleast you are not helping them expoit those awesome kids. Please everyone do m oer than talk about not watching, simply dont watch. *IF* you are that curious, wait for the recap, its much more entertaining! Really!

Do what YOU KNOW is right, DONT WATCH ever again......PLEASE.

Cara, Mady, Aiden, Colin, Leah, Alexis, Hannah & Joel Gosselin ask you not to watch and further exploit them.

PS, I just saw their show for the first time last sept and realised how bad things were, I have not watched since Jan, especially now.

Alie said...

Dave in Pittsburgh said...

Simply stated, Kate is white trash ....
.......................

Dave, I am in "agreeance", to borrow a recent Kateism. Rudeness, lack of social skills, and abysmal command of the English language = white trash.

Jon and Kate's 15 minutes of fame are nearly up. They have nothing interesting to say or contibute to humanity. The comical thing is watching the two of them - full of self importance - trying to capitalize on their D-list celebrity fame. Sure, their sleazy conduct has attracted the attention of the curious during the lazy days of summer. But it won't last. They're not educated. They're not special. They're not worthy of anyone's sustained attention. Soon everyone will move on to the next spectacle.

The ratings are on a downward slope. It won't be long before TLC replaces them with another family of multiples or dwarfs.

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

If you are too curious about watching, you can catch it on YouTube or in desparation, go to BM's site because she posts the clips. Don't watch Monday night. The trolls have it right----GWOPers watch it, so why attack them? The Neilsen ratings and advertisers don't distinguish between those who watch to snark and those who watch who are fans.

bbfan09 said...

After reading the InTouch article with the Jon Gosselin interview I am disappointed to see he is as much of a liar as Katie herself! A few of the notable lies include:
"As soon as I get home the nannies leave" It is interesting that in a picture at the bottom of that same page there is a picture with the glamour nanny at a picnic table with him.

"I'm there just as much as Kate" I call BS up until two weeks ago he was only there 3 out of 20 days!

He admits to talking to Hailey on the phone and being attracted to her and then meeting up with her at her parents house. Before he said they started talking while he was at her parents house. It seems to me they were talking and he went there to be with her.

He says he will introduce Hailey to the kids after the divorce is final but there have been numerous reports of the kids already meeting her and talking to her on the phone. And he admits Mady likes her clothes but says he cannot bring her around. So are they seeing pictures of her? Strange!

"I am a great father" IMO great fathers do not admit on television they do not enjoy staying at home with their children, appear resentful toward their children and become distant, or spend the little time he is with them on the telephone or smoking. I will not even get started on all the trips, lady friends and attention he is bringing to the family during such a hard time for the children!

Claiming Kate stole his wedding ring from the apartment above their garage is odd. Why would he stay in the garage anyway with the kids sleeping in the house is strange!

Jon is just as disgusting as Kate! It is really sad for the children@

motorcitymama said...

I just got home from a trip to Kroger (I usually go to Aldi so I hardly ever see the grocery store tabloids). I was in line and saw some god-awful computer enhanced pic of John Gosselin--was it Star? I'm not kidding you, he's so photoshopped and altered he's starting to look scary, like Kim Jung Il.

fidosmommy said...

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

The cabinet installation was done before the announcement of their
separation, I think. It was done
while Kate and the children were in NC earlier in the year. The shows we have seen in the "old" (yeah, right) kitchen were done earlier in the year, too. They just haven't shown these shows until now since the program went "on hiatus" (yeah, right).

So it seems like a time adjustment by TLC to us, but I think it's just how the timing worked out.

If I've got that wrong, sorry.

K8 is not Gr8 said...

Kelly Ripa said she is so excited to have Kate Gosselin on Live with Regis and Kelly on Thursday August 13th. Kelly has a show on TLC as well and is financially obligated to the network to promote them. That is so twisted. Kelly Ripa's now apart of the TLC exploitation of the children.

Send Live with Regis and Kelly a comment with your thoughts on Kate being a guest.

Mystical said...

So is Meridith Viara on "The Today Show" on NBC. I nearly heaved when I heard her mention how "excited she was to have the opportunity to get Kate's side of things since her separation from Jon". Wow.....such a turn-off. So, I've decided not to even record that interview because I would find it to be unbearable.

iluveeyore said...

Who knows what they'll do next? I think they ought to try for an annulment. Then they can both pretend that none of the kids exist.

Team8 said...

I watched the show for two seasons before I got fed up with the way Kate continually humiliated Jon and spoke to him like a child (worse than I ever would even to a child). However, now that he is back on his own and not under her control, I have to wonder if he has always been this clueless and she was just trying to manage his idiocy or if he was emotionally stunted from ten years of marriage to Kate. Pics of him drinking with Hailey on Thursday, buying a round for the whole bar. Then back to the Konpound on Friday to hang out with the sleazy waitress and her child? Introducing her to your eight kids?? This is the kind of role model you want for your five daughters? If he is trying to lose custody, he is on the right track, I would say...

Maude said...

Since there has been no visible or apparent result from Jon's dating, I'd have to say that Kate has some dating or other similar behavior that is known to the parties involved. Just because we haven't seen it doesn't mean that Jon doesn't have proof. Also we can't assume that Kate wants full custody. She's never shown any sign of it before that I've seen. What I've observed from the first special on was a woman quite happy to dump the kids on Jon the minute he walked in the door or a woman who had to have helpers not with the cooking and cleaning but with the children. I believe she had help with the cooking and cleaning that we didn't see and a LOT more help with the children than we have seen all along. The bottom line is Kate would go completely demented if she had all eight children 24/7 and I think she has just barely enough self-knowledge to know that.

Ms.Peach said...

And so it starts, he said; she said.....
---------------------------------
Whether you want Jon Gosselin's head on a stick or you want to give him a hearty hand shake, now's your chance to get the full story from the man himself.

E! News has scored the first televised sit-down with the Jon & Kate Plus 8 star since he and the missus announced their separation—meaning we have dibs not only on the inside scoop on the status of Jon's marriage, his latest relationships and his plans for the future—but on his reaction to whatever Kate says on the Today show that morning, as well!

Tune in for a special hour-long edition of E! News Monday, Aug. 10, at 7 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. to hear what Jon has to say about Kate's interview, as well as about the latest rumors he's had to contend with since reverting to single status.

Then catch our full exclusive interview with Jon on Tuesday, Aug. 11.
---------------------------------

I read that he is being interviewed Monday morning. I wonder if it will be before or after Kate on the Today Show.

Willow #1 said...

Will you guys please report as much as you can about the E interview. My cable company does not give us that channel. Normally I wouldn't care that much, but that one MIGHT be intersting. Thanks!!!

TUNDRA said...

Thanks Ms. Peach!

I saw the "exclusive" interviews with Kate Major (Kate 02) on E! News last week. What a rip! Aside from her highly annoying, irritating voice, it seemed to me Major did a lot of bobbing and weaving never revealing anything we hadn't already heard before.

I asked earlier but don't know if anyone answered ... does E! News pay for interviews? I read that Jon made $40,000 on the In Touch interview. The TODAY show doesn't pay for guests. Just expenses.

Roberta said...

All the online sites, the tabloids, and the TV networks have one common goal, to increase viewer/readership to pump up their advertising rates and make more profit. To that end they're all co-conspirators with TLC to give Jon and Kate all the publicity they can. The proof is that they're sticking to the juicy gossip and staying clear of the real issue: the exploitation of 8 innocent children in order to make a small army of adults rich.

___________________________________

I agree but with a twist. She played an idiot with a wealthy dentist father and the idiot was too blind or dense to figure it out. When Dr. G became ill and passed when the tups were 8 months, off went the videotapes to TLC. Working for a living was NOT a part of the plan. Khate performed the role of Christian mom & wife for four seasons, until she there was millions in her bank account, her $3 chair sitting in the driveway of a $1mil manse and she was behind the wheel of a $65,000 SUV. She then dumped both her husband and her religion when she didn't need them anymore.

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

So the media war has begun, with Jon losing no time in responding to Kate's Monday a.m. appearance. It looks like Jon's In Touch interview was the catalyst, and now they're going to duke it out on whatever outlet their PR folks can get for them. So much for Kate's claim that they want to deal with the divorce privately.

Berks County Resident said...

Don't know how true this is, but my husbands boss (of a very big company based out of the city of Reading) told him the other day that Kate & Jon were quietly in talks to try to sell the mansion. He lives near them and knows someone in the real estate business that clued him into this little tid bit. Told him he'll be happy if it does get sold cause then no more chaos (i.e. paps, ppl driving by all the time) in his neck of the woods. Again, that is not confirmed but still interesting to see if it does eventually happen.

I agree, Jon was the docile one who would jump to her every whim. With an inheritance coming, to boot.

Once they had their own substantial earnings coming in, Kate substituted Jon's duties with multiple "not a nanny" helpers and no longer needed him or her religious groups to support her needs.

What a self-serving lying witch she is......

lindahoyt said...

Jon called his family "classy", because they did not appear on his tv show, nor have they been interviewed.

Guess he isn't as classy as the rest of the family.

Here is the thing dude; you made some mistakes, and some things can not be fixed. You married a woman you knew was mean and selfish. You agreed to have multiples--TWICE. YOU brought those kids into this mess. Now you are obligated to be a FATHER to them. Good fathers are with their kids, not out at bars in the middle of the night, dragging home women and modeling sleazy behavior for their daughters and sons.

You are ruining the lives you brought into this world by being selfish and greedy.

Did Kate have a bodyguard in Austin?

On the run again said...

Did anyone else hear that Kate is in negotiations to sell the mansion? She can't keep it up anymore "alone", some real estate agents in my area, (one hour from them) are starting to tell the same story. Kate may be leaving Pa. with her little moneymakers.
Is THAT the reason for the new kitchen? So she can put the house up for more money?

Momof2inMD said...

Gosh, I am so sick and tired of seeing their mug shots everywhere!!! Especially Jon's. What a hypocrite!

First he whines about loosing his privacy and now we can't get his grinning mug off all the tabloids. All of a sudden he is signing autographs and is talking to the P people. BARF

I guess he figured out after all that the money wouldn't flow no more and he would have to get a 9 - 5 job.

As if.... he couldn't find his way out of a wet paper bag if he wanted to.

I don't believe it. First, in this real estate market, they're not likely to sell it quickly, even with a new kitchen, and they still have the house in Elizabethtown that hasn't sold. Second, neither Jon's NYC apartment nor Kate's MD condo is big enough for all the kids. So they'd have to buy yet another property to accomodate the kids. Even these two aren't that stupid.

Willow #1 said...

Circling the Drain: YES!! My thoughts exactly. I always thought Khate went for Mr. Gosselin the older and the younger because it was the closest to a doctor she could get!! Yes. No question.

Willow #1 said...

What I was trying to say was I think Kate went after Jon because of his dad being a doctor - I don't think that came out exactly right in my previous post. But, you get the idea. She couldn't get a doctor, so she found the son of a doctor.

Rory said...

I'm new to the whole J&K thing... but I was wondering who paid for the babies to be born? In her book she says something about insurance, but if neither had a job how do they have insurace? Also, She says on a tv show that she had to work as a nurse on saturdays, but in the book she never says that and says she never leaves the house alone... EVER, so what is true?

Disgusted said...

Regarding selling the new house (i prefer not to call it a mansion because it's pretty average in a lot of ways to me.)

If they can't afford it now, they could not have afforded it a year ago; and they certainly should not have each spent so much money on one bedroom condos. In Texas, you can spend $700K on another 6,000 house that is much more beautiful than the one they are in. That decision is mind boggling and so reckless. If anything, she should have gone back to the E-town house or purchased another house more suited for a mother of 8.

Did anyone read what Kate said at the Austin Expo? Again, she claimed that the show is not hurting her kids because this is their NORMAL. Well guess what, it's a matter of time before they figure out that there is nothing normal about their family, their lives, or their show.

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

I believe it. The property is too much upkeep and Kate would probably prefer to be "where the action is". That's exactly why I thought they did the kitchen remodel. It's kind of like an open house on TV. If I had the bucks and lived in PA, I'd buy it. That property is gorgeous and it will sell. Kate has no relationship with family, so why not pick up and move. No telling how the mortgage is set up anyway. TLC could be picking up all or part of the tab.

Ms.Peach said...

marylou said...

Good question. I haven't seen any pictures, but I bet Steve was with her since he's back in the picture. I'm sure he's in NYC with her this morning for the Today Show.

This is just a cop-out. IOW in Kate's convaluted justification of exploitation, if a child is continually molested, beaten etc, it's just fine because it's their normal. Kate, you're a jerk.

DoneAndDone said...

Regarding this morning's Today Show interview... Kate is so. full. of. it.

I like how she side-stepped Meredith's tougher questions in those you-know-what heels. (I was a particular fan of her strategy of reverting to, "That's private, for the kids' sake," when Meredith asked about the truth of who was "done" with the marriage first. Hmm...)

Also, did anyone else who watched get a startling flashback to the baby voice in the honeymoon plane video right near the beginning?

CherryCheeseKate said...

Had to chuckle at the "fake KATE" that appeared on the TODAY show (I only watched a clip of her appearance on the RadarOnline site) and it's obvious, she's ONCE AGAIN ~ portraying herself as the true victim in all this. Her "handlers" must have recommended: using her little girl voice, wearing a less spikey doo; putting on a bland-colored demure/tasteful/respectful "Mommy" dress that's to the knees with a high neckline, and with sleeves; lower heeled "old lady" sandals; less makeup and understated jewelry. *BUT*--I'm not fooled ~ it's just a "COSTUME" to come across as something she's not and to gain sympathy/pity! WE'VE ALL SEEN/HEARD/READ ABOUT--THE *REAL* KATE...and it isn't THIS "cardboard cutout" that showed up for the TODAY interview!

sugarjay said...

Isn't it interesting that on the Today show when Kate was asked if she went to Jon first back in October and told him it was over she said no but nodded her head like you would if you were saying yes?

Anna said...

I saw Kate on the Today show. Seems like Kevin and Jodi have a great opportunity to prove that Kate is a liar if they go public to refute the claim that they have made money talking to the press. We know they are just trying to help the kids not make money talking about them.

Their ratings are still the highest of any show on TLC. They would need to drop another 2 million+ viewers before it makes sense to drop J&K+8 for another show.

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/05/arts/television/05tlc.html?pagewanted=1&_r=1

"But for TLC, it almost all comes back to the Gosselins. To date this year, 20 of the Top 25 telecasts on TLC are episodes of “Jon & Kate.” The show and the channel were both shaken in March when tabloids said that Mr. Gosselin was having an affair. The hastily edited episodes that followed drew record audiences to TLC, topping out at 10.6 million viewers in June when the couple formally split. Through the end of July TLC has averaged one million viewers in prime time, up from 876,000 last year."

Not much of a war I don't think. Kate is clearly following the advise of her lawyer much better than Jon seems to be following the advice of his. She took no shots at Jon on the Today show just indicated that she sees the end of the marriage differently than Jon does. Said nothing about the girlfriends as Jon's activities do not effect her but indicated a concern for the kids that would be hard for Jon to argue against.

I guess if Jon does have PROOF that Kate bought a condo in Maryland or that she has had an affair, he could produce that proof but he will look like the ass taking shots at her when she took none at him.

It should be a pretty boring interview on E!.

bcsurvivor2001 said...

Just saw the first half of the Today show interview (online). WTH? Is she actually for real?

She did NOT answer a single question realy - couldn't remember when he moved out? Please.

Never one time - not ONCE - even remotely tried to make it appear as if she "might" have had anything to do with the failure of this marriage.

And if it is so upsetting (the seperatin/divorce) - and she insists on wearing her wedding rings "for the sake of the kids".....why did SHE FILE FOR THE DIVORCE?

Who does she think she's fooling? The kids? Please - just cuz they see mom wearing some rings - doesn't mean a thing. She wants to introduce this slowly? So mom being there 4 days - then gone for 3-4 and dad coming in and doing the reverse.....with mulitude of different caretakers - and they don't know something is "up"?

She keeps acting like the jilted wife - but SHE's the one who filed the papers.

This just makes me soooo angry I could SCREAM...................ok feel better now :)

Alie said...

Can't stomach the idea of writing anything more about the Today interview than this:

Meredith Vieira has - yet again - proven herself to be a spectacular failure as an interviewer.

Thanks for allowing Kate's rambling self-serving commercial. You belong in PR.

Christine said...

Rory,

The state of PA paid for the children to be born (medicaid). Even after Jon "found" a job working for the state of PA when the tups were still babies, the family still barely qualified for medicaid. Kate had made a big deal about losing her private nurse when the tups turned one, which was paid for by the state. The state said that the nurse was not neccessary since the tups had no developmental issues. Kate went to court begging for the nurse. This is whole issue makes alot of people upset, since from what we have seen J&K have not given back now that they have so much money in anyway for all they took for free.
Here is a link to the article from a local PA newspaper about the state of PA paying and Kate.

http://readingeagle.com/article.aspx?id=140514

Kate did go back to work on saturdays, for a short time. This was seen in a few early episodes. The tups were over 1 year old when she went back. I don't think it was for more then a few months and then the freebies and money were rolling in from the show/church tours, she quit.

Her "handlers" must have recommended: using her little girl voice, wearing a less spikey doo; putting on a bland-colored demure/tasteful/respectful "Mommy" dress that's to the knees with a high neckline, and with sleeves; lower heeled "old lady" sandals; less makeup and understated jewelry. *BUT*--I'm not fooled ~ it's just a "COSTUME" to come across as something she's not and to gain sympathy/pity! WE'VE ALL SEEN/HEARD/READ ABOUT--THE *REAL* KATE...and it isn't THIS "cardboard cutout" that showed up for the TODAY interview!

You nailed the description to a tee. Almos took the words out of my mouth while I was watching it.

Sad - really sad. To have this grand opportunity - on something like the Today Show - to actually show a true human side ...........

MV didn't ask a single question that wasn't OK'd by "her people" ahead of time. It was very apparent as she never once repeated any of them for further clarification after she actually didn't even answer them.

oh well - the saga just continues...onwards and upwards to tonight "rebuttal" :) :)

a rose is a rose said...

Damage control, thats all it was on the morning show. From her dark high cut dress, to the granny shoes, to the soft, childlike voice, to wiping the tear with the tip of a finger, to a softened hairdo. But you know what I saw barely below the surface?...a mean spririted, greedy, self centered, lying shrew, that forced her husband out, and to THIS DAY, refuses to take ANY responsibility for it, NONE. Merideth asked her more then once, if she had a hand in the marriage ending and all she could say is the stupid, canned and evasive answer she always uses,
"no one if perfect." That's IT?
That's all she had to SAY? After all this time and all we saw?
She is nuts.

Heather said...

Why is Kate still wearing her ring? She's giving her kids a very mixed message - if she likes the diamonds, then she should have them re-set in a less symbolic piece of jewelry. Certainly she has the money to do that. Or maybe she should just do what normal people do and wear it on the opposite hand.

How long is the general public going to let her insult their intelligence? Does she really think people are stupid enough to believe her lies?

DoneAndDone said...
Also, did anyone else who watched get a startling flashback to the baby voice in the honeymoon plane video right near the beginning?
----------------------
I totally heard that too. Meek, soft spoken. That was not Kate. At least not the real Kate.

Her crying on the interview spoke volumes, I think she can see the bottom dropping out of this thing while she desperately tries to hold on.

She's up for some HUGELY rough times coming soon and she has no one...I mean no one to call for support.

And saying that her brother and SIL are in it (telling tales to the rags) for the money...HELLO? What are you in it for?

I have no pity on her until she shows utter repentance for her actions. Until then I will continue to be Team 8!

Kate is clearly following the advise of her lawyer much better than Jon seems to be following the advice of his.


Trust me the divorce settlement is already worked out between their lawyers, and awaits a judge to rubber-stamp it. Everything they've said or done in the past months has been staged and orchestrated for the purpose of pumping up viewership, and will have absolutely no influence on the terms of their divorce or the custody of their children unless the presiding judge decides to intervene. That would be highly irregular where there's already a settlement, prepared by independent attorneys, that both parties have agreed to.

I am deeply ashamed of Meredith Viera.

She could of helped those poor children and instead she just turned her head and pretended like those children are not being exploited.

C'villeGa mom said...

I was not impressed with MV this morning! Kate had obviously prepared answers for the prepared questions that were asked of her. I say let Nancy Grace get a hold of Kate--that will make her cry "real" tears!

CherryCheeseKate said...

You know if you watch the whole interview (both parts) she DID slip up a few times and accidently let 'flashes' of the "real" KATE GOSSELIN start to seep out and rear it's ugly chopped hairdo head: ex: when she talked about being in hiding (from the paparazzi) on her days when she's not the one watching the kids; when she talked about how jealous her brother/sister-in-law are and how willing they are to try and make money off her children [OH THE IRONY ON THAT STATEMENT!], and when she talked about waking up every morning and dealing with the reported rumors, etc...
******
IT WAS DURING THESE (and a few others) COMMENTS - YOU COULD SEE HER WHOLE DEMEANOR CHANGE AND SHE HAD TO CHECK HERSELF AND GO BACK TO THE "pitiful KATE" FACADE.

Kate did not buy the condo- she said she was there but never even went to look at a condo...

Ya, that would happen only if she planned on retiring right after the show. In TV it's one hand washes the other.

lindahoyt said...

Kate, since you are doing things you have never done before; try looking to yourself and recognising that you are wrong. Try an apology. Works wonders.

Apologise to Jon for being a mean, hateful, selfish, witch for 10 years.

Apologize to Kevin and Jodi for always thinking of yourself; never taking her kids, never offering to come over and clean vomit, messes or GUM that your children inflicted on her house, and instead yelling and lecturing that sweet woman and taking advantage of her kindness.

Apologise to the kids for not recognizing that YOU have done what you hate others to do: made money off your kids and their childhood, from bowel movements, tantrums to constipation and birthday parties.

Since you are doing things you have never done before, how about be a selfless, supportive wife? FOR THE KIDS...get DR. Laura's book, "proper care and feeding of husbands" and follow the prescription. AND not with Gina Neild's husband. With your own.

lindahoyt said...

Kate, don't just SAY your focus is on your children...really PUT your focus on your children.

Studies have proven that it is BEST for kids to grow up in a family with two married parents. The kids that do, statistically are less likely to do poorly in school, less likely to do drugs, are less likely to have sex early and often, or to have the medical problems associated with early sexual promiscuity. Girls are less likely to be in abusive relationships....

Also, statistically, children who grow up famous, on television, are MOST likely to have all of the above problems. RARELY do famous children turn out to be healthy, well adjusted adults.

YOU traded your marriage, your family and your children's best interests in for MONEY.

Kate Gosselin a nightmare behind the scenes at 'Today,' sources say

August 10, 2009
BY BILL ZWECKER Sun-Times Columnist

Considering TV reality star Kate Gosselin’s latest round of media interviews is orchestrated to rehabilitate her tarnished image as a mother — and even as a human being — it didn’t start out so well on the “Today” show this morning.

Sources from the “Today” staff tell me Gosselin was not the most pleasant person to be around on Monday. In fact, she was ‘‘a total b----’’ to virtually everyone, said a longtime NBC staffer. ‘‘We get virtually all of the world’s biggest egos coming through here,’’ added the source. ‘‘But Kate was one of the most unpleasant I’ve seen in working here for many years.’’

Another staff member also said that when Gosselin learned there was a chance the cameras might catch sight of the large entourage accompanying her (likely to illustrate how much her life has changed becoming a celebrity on the troubled reality show ‘‘Jon & Kate Plus Eight’’), ‘‘she strongly hinted she would walk off the show,” before the interview with Today co-host Meredith Vieira.

The final note: As Gosselin was departing the “Today” set at NBC’s 30 Rockefeller Center headquarters in New York, she was overheard trashing Vieira. ‘‘Which is even more crazy,’’ added the second source. ‘‘Meredith very clearly, and in a straightforward way, asked exactly the questions you’d expect. She asked about the alleged affair with her bodyguard — which really seemed to piss [Kate] off, her relationship with Jon, how her kids were doing and whether ‘if you could do it over again, would you?’ ’’

‘‘She was swearing like a drunken sailor as she stormed out,’’ added the “Today” insider.

lindahoyt said...

Kate,

Your kids are NOT going to look back at you with any type of admiration. No. Listen to Jodi and Kevin.

Your kids are going to hate you. They are going to despise what you did to them. They will look at you as greedy, power hungry, who drove their grandparents and their daddy away from them. Who forced them to live in a circus. Who sold their memories and childhoods for fingernails, massages, tans and boobs. They will see you as a woman who loves fame more than them.

They will see that everything you have done is for YOU! That a woman who is married does not tell her husband she is 'DONE'! and refuse counseling...that woman does NOT have perseverence. A woman who has a romance with a paid employee and who they see kissing said employee does not even know what it is, much less possess, integrity!

You live in a dream world. You do not see reality.

TLC, get her some help. Mental illness is a real disease...this woman needs intervention!

emmasmommy said...

I often check our PerezHilton and am noticing that a lot if not all of the comments written are against Kate and Jon. No one is drinking the Kool-Aid anymore. It is unfortunate that Perez himself does not do the research because if he did he would see Kate for what she really is instead of flip floppin his views towards her all the time.

Jon maybe a douche or not I do not care but Kate has been and will be a total bitch for the rest of her life.

The show is SINKING not because of the divorce or his "flings" but because it is BORING. Who wants to listen to her. She lacks communication skills and talks like a teeny bopper. All she talks about is the kids and you know what I do not want to hear it. I have my kids with their own talents and bubbly personalities that to listen to her go on and on just seems blah! At some point and it seems like it is now.....you just want to tell her SHUT THE *&(^)) UP ALREADY!

KATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Please stop the show with TLC and join Bravo. Move to Atlanta and join the classless ladies of the Real Housewives. You belong with those ladies because they all lack skills. With the exception of Kandi, she actually has a talent and works. But Kate you belong with Sharee. Both think they are designers, good mothers, good wifes. Or with Kim who knows what it is to have an affair w/ married men. Now that I would watch

lindahoyt said...

Why didn't Viera ask Kate what her 'goals' were? Kate mentioned it several times, it begs the question what ARE her and Jon's goals that are so different.

Jon's interview would seem to indicate that his goal was to mend the marriage, while hers was to end it.

I can not believe that Jon would allow his interview to be cancelled.

Jon, advice....do it anyway, and dare TLC to sue you! Get the truth out there. Break your contract. Show the contract on tv that Kate and TLC brought to you. Why do you have to be the fall guy?

hereshecomes said...

Wow, from talking about God's providence to swearing like a sailor. And to whom was Kate confiding her disgust with Viera--another paid "companion"? Does she even have any real friends?

Intervention needed NOW said...

Someone better step in with Kate and get her some help. She is so deep in denial that she will not see the true picture that eveyone else in the world sees. She is in real need of medical mental help, before its too late and she's off the deep end. In the interview today she got a small taste of how many people feel about her, and she could not deal with it. In her heart she truly believes that the world "LOVES" her and her kids.

She's starting to lose it said...

I just read that Kate's paid 'handlers' had to calm her down and stop her from 'going off' backstage at NBC. They were supposedly speaking calmly to her to quiet her down, but she kept cursing about Meredith and the interview. Wow, welcome to the Kate we ALWAYS knew she was.

Step right up folks said...

Ok folks, so the REAL Kate Gosselin was just unleashed from the bag. See her wiggle, see her squirm, step right up folks, one of lifes mysteries right behind the curtain. Kate has become her OWN sideshow.

According to Khate on the Today show, she is still denying purchasing the condo. She is claiming that the woman who she had lunch with was Steve's wife. They are very good friends of hers and very comforting to the children. This should be easily confirmed, no? Doesn't anyone know what Steve's wife look like. Also, even though the interview was Khate be evasive to every question, it did nothing to cause the casual viewer to tune in to the show. Meredith DID try, she asked where does Khate do when she is not in PA. Khate claims it is a secret cause she has to hide from the paps. Note to PAPS: Get on it, you need to get the big one! Khate and her bf.

JON CANCELLED HIS E' INTERVIEW FOR TONIGHT. WOW GWOP'S ITS GOING TO GET HOT, HOT, HOT IN THE KITCHEN,

Khate did that interview today on the Today Show because it is a Monday - and tonight is the show! She is disgusting!!!

Don't watch tonight GWOPers, TLC is doing everything it can today to get us to tune in. Lets all really call their bluff. Now Jon cancelled his interview for tonight.

From what I've read the interview was the usual puff piece. I'd love to see what she'd do if a real hardnose interviewer got his/her hands on Kate.
Now THAT I'd watch.

Now that Kate's reaction to Meredith has been publicized, maybe Meredith should invite Kate back for a follow-up.

Why is it that I suddenly believe Kate Major's side of the story? Maybe because every word from KON are lies? I actually feel very sorry for the young, naive "young ladies" that are getting tangled up with Jon (who I at one time very much thought was the good guy). What a cirus they are making of their lives and those of their childre!

PJ said...
"Not much of a war I don't think."

We must be watching different people. Both Jon and Kate are getting their side of the story out there however they can, whether it's Jon's recent In Touch interview, or Kate this morning on Today. Now that Kate's behind the scenes behavior at the Today show has been outed by one of the staffers, it's obvious she was coached and putting on an act for the interview, the "nice" Kate. The only reason to go to so much effort to create a more likable public persona is to appeal to viewers' sympathy: "poor little me, all alone with 8 kids (sniff, sniff). She doesn't have to say anything directly about Jon, her phoney behavior as the demure, wronged wife is supposed to garner sympathy. Too bad she couldn't keep her big mouth shut and allowed the Today staffers to see who she really is!

*****
This is just a cop-out. IOW in Kate's convaluted justification of exploitation, if a child is continually molested, beaten etc, it's just fine because it's their normal. Kate, you're a jerk.

OMG--that is an excellent analogy. And it makes it even sicker when you think of it. Just nothing can make it right. And that is why all of the lies--they are desperately finding reasons to make others think it's right.

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

There's possibly some truth to what Kate Majors is saying, but tonight on E! she said she quit Star because it was Jon's idea... What?? Who would quit their job after knowing a guy for only a few days!! No matter how "romantic" they were or were not? And just because he told her to. IMO, I think KM has some serious "reality" issues of her own. Doesn't ANYONE take responsibility for their own actions anymore??

Dunwoody Mom said...

So, according to Radar Online, TLC nixed Jon's interview with E. Wow, they must really be afraid of what Jon may say about Kate.

Whatever, TLC. You're just putting off the inevitable.

I just have no more comments anymore..... Jon and Kate are both sick and twisted. I'm glad though that TLC pulled numnuts interview w/E. Someone needed to shut him up. But now Kate is talking.... you get rid of one and here comes the other.... interviews, shopping. I was glad though that Steve acted like a bodyguard and went in front to block the paps....but Kate created it... so now when will she be home for "her kids"......she's been away quite a few days.... OH I only watched a snippet last week and none this week and my boycott of TLC is still ongoing, thanks to the Roloffs being off.... nothing else on that channel interests me in the least bit....

Maybe that was the day he didn't wear his ring like doesn't wear hers some days. They're all sick. She walks along like she thinks she's Queen...completely disgusting.
I noticed too that all those people around her were using their cell phones to get her picture. Wonder what happened to the body guards not taking away peoples phones and cameras.

Didn't watch interview or shows but
love reading the comments.
Past behavior patterns will dictate
future behavior. K has a teflon persona that she feels no one can penetrate. Comments of her crying or sobbing - not k, looks like she
was dabbing her eyes and mascara.
The g's are nothing without the kids and they are maturing and not cute anymore. Pull the plug and down the drain. They offer nothing.

Countrydeb said...

I'm so sick of hearing Jon say...I'm only 32 years old. It sounds like he want's to erase the last 10 years and go back to be a "bad a__" guy. He's doing what Jon want's. What a LOSER! He is so stupid. Years from now, he will regret the way he acted during this time.

proteinmapper said...

Saw the Today interview.

This hasen't been mentioned yet.

Um, um, um, I'm not perfect, um, um, um, um, Nobody is perfect, um, um, um, um,.....

Heads up - people who lie, um, um, um, tend to, um, um, um, use alot of "UM's"!

All the "umming" gave her some time to think about what she was saying and try NOT to contradict herself. It didn't work.

AZ Mom said...

Jon probably cancelled his interview so that he can do it NEXT Monday...they've got to do something to keep people tuning in. Khate, as I've said before, if you just let the paps get one quick picture of you and Steve (holding hands, snuggling, etc.) it will generate a whole new interest in the show and you'll have record numbers tune in to see how you handle that.

grannoftwo said...

I just re-emailed Regis and Kelly and asked them if they had been updated on the staffer's report of Kate's behavior on the Today Show. As, I have yet to receive any return email on any of the three I have already sent them, suffice it to say they are either deleting them before they read them, or just not that interested in what their viewers want to see anymore. In either case, I am no longer a viewer. Didn't ever care too much for that show anyway.

BarbMae said...

It is sad to say but those poor 8 kids look happier when the TLC production crew are around filming then when they are alone with either Jon or kate. That is because they have more interacton with their parents then just riding around on that darn driveway on their bikes and that motorized car. Again, though, why does TLC insist on filming in that stupid driveway (ie. the rocket).... come on they have enough acreage that they could have launched anywhere other than by the driveway. They know the paps are there.... stop parading this ongoing train wreck around. I think the "smiling" pics of Kate were in response to the staffers at the Today show ratting her out.... so she had to show her "softer" side. Meredith should have gone in for the "kill" suffice to say and nailed Kate on her inconsistencies. It will be interesting in what ratings the show got from last night.

So if you use Kate's logic, it's OK for a child who goes to bed hungry every night to continue going without enough to eat because that is their "normal."

That's called relativism and it doesn't fly when you're talking about child welfare. There are standards in place for what is "normal" for a child.

A child being abused is not normal, even if it's that child's normal. A child being neglected is not normal, even if it's their normal. A child being filmed day in and day out is not normal, even if it's their normal and TLC says it's a great idea. A child whose home is a television set is not normal, even if it is their normal, and even if their mother and father think it is.

NewWester said...

The reviews for Kate's interview on the Today Show are not good. There are reports that Kate was a real bitch behind the scenes and also trashed Meredith after the show. Jon's interview on 'E' was cancelled .Now Kate Major is furious with Jon and threatening to tell all in a interview( I wonder if it will be with her former employer STAR magazine?)
If Jon and Kate are surprised at all the attention they are getting and any negative fallout ,they should look in the mirror.
The media can build you up and open doors many of us will never see.Both of you could have used the show to showcase loving parents of a large family dealing with everyday issues.Instead you got greedy(eg:new kitchen).But when the media decides to turn on you and tear you down Watch Out!
In your quest to be the darlings of television you have made many enemies and pushed away people who should be defending you right now.
I hope you have been putting a scrapbook together of all your magazine covers and getting your resume updated. Your fifteen minutes of fame is almost up. Hope it was worth it

In order to quiet down some of the rumors about Kate and her bodyguard, all she has to do is quit using him and let the agency assign someone else.

I don't understand why this has not been done. It's a simple 'fix.'

All these bimbos are just paid distractions. Have you seen all the "Baby Mamas" coming out to claim the Jackson children. Same difference. All looking for fame and a buck. I don't buy for a minute that she and Jon had a relationship. Same thing with Glassman. All just a public relations angle. Most people try to stay out of the public eye but these people are basking in it - and the reason is ratings.Bimbo eruptions will remain connected to this show as long as it airs. It is what brings in ratings. No one wants to watch them go to church!!!

I am still hearing that Kate has been spotted coming out of Jons NYC Apartment building at all hours. I don't know how much is fact or just gossip.
I think Kate and TLC have Jon between a rock and a hard place with the cancellation of his E interview. The only way Jon can redeem himself in the eyes of the public is if he produces that contract that Kate made him sign when she decided the marriage was over. There has got to be something thats stopping Jon from producing it, whether it be lawyers, Kate or TLC telling him if he does show a contract that K made him sign he loses all rights to any J&K plus 8 monies besides piggyback monies made from the sale of books, appearances and copyright products.
Jons loving his lifestyle he won't want to do anything to give up the money.
When I watched the interview with Kate on Today- she was losing it when Jodi and Kevin were brought up. I thought her teeth were going to crack.

*******

Please understand I believe that this would be typical Kate behavior. However, I'm certain somebody at the scene would have a cell phone with video capability
to shoot this lovely scene. Since there is (for now) no available
proof of this event, I'm a bit skeptical of its veracity.

Tetotomom said...

Someone yesterday asked about Table for Twelve . I was just on TLCs web site and they have that show listed as coming back in Sept. What a shame, I was hoping those people would tell TLC where to put their show. I just hope TLC doesn't take over their lives the way they did with J&K+8.This family seems to be more down to earth with all their kids. And he still does work every day.

IMO, it is only their 'normal' as long as they are sequestered behind the confines of the Konpound; once the Gosselin children reach an age where they are of the intellectual capacity and maturity level and have ventured outside of the realm of 'reality tv', ie 'the show is our life and our life the show' will they be capable of deciding for THEMSELVES if their life is 'normal' by comparison. To use the justification of 'this is their normal' does NOT in and of itself exclude the probability that 'their normal' may or will at some point create and cause conflict at a time and age when the children are free to explore individual experiences that extend outside of the perimeters of 'their normal'.

TLC is allowing Kate to speak because she'll lie and say whatever they want!

Jon should be allowed to get his side out. I think TLC is afraide of what might say about the marriage/breakup. They don't want the TRUTH to come out.

squattmunki24 said...

You guys should read the Radar comments on the TLC stopping Jon's interview story!

For some reason people think if they see a half hour of Kate playing mommy that's how things really are. They seem to think Kate is with the kids by herself all the time. Poor single mom Kate! (yeah righ...)

I'm now starting to believe Jon's side. What is it that TLC doesn't want Jon to say? They only care about the $$$ and the show's image.

Just cut him loose said...

Steve the bodyguard (and I use that term very loosely) keeps turning up like a bad penney. With all the controversy surronding this
character, why in God's name does he keep coming back! It is TLC that is creating all the gossip because they refuse to let another person take his place. They MAKE us think the worst about him and Kate,as though they can't DO without one another.

snerk said...

Please understand I believe that this would be typical Kate behavior. However, I'm certain somebody at the scene would have a cell phone with video capability
to shoot this lovely scene. Since there is (for now) no available
proof of this event, I'm a bit skeptical of its veracity.


Employees who work backstage aren't usually allowed to photo or record any of the guests without their permission. Anyone seen recorder Kate's tantrum would likely have been immediately fired. Kate's pretty good at knowing when it's safe to rampage without a recorded version getting out.

Angry Kate said...

Not me. I do not question one iota of Kate's mal behavior. She acted that way in FRONT of the CAMERA, why wouldn't I believe that she did it back stage because she was pissed at the interviewer. Sorry no questioning anyone about that, I believe it 100%. That is WHO she is.

She is NOT a nice person said...

WHY WOULD'T SOMEONE BELIEVE THAT KATE ACTED LIKE AN ANGRY NUT BACKSTAGE.
I'm sure a lot of the stage hands saw PLENTY with Kate and cannot tape it or cameravideo it, but DID see it and have repeated it.
What's so hard to understand. We all KNOW Kate, that's pure Kate.

They shut him up said...

TLC jumped all OVER Jon's interview with E!, and it really smells fishy to me. They KNOW first hand what Kate has done, and if Jon comes out with it, it is sure death for the show. So, they put a zipper on Jon's mouth.
What Sleezes.

grannyoftwo said...

The Live with Regis and Kelly is being taped today. So much for the live part huh? I still cannot believe they are having her on their show. She needs to be on something like Maury Povich or Jerry Springer, that would be more like the audience for her lies. She would fit right in on one of those, with her high heels and short skirts, and her spikey do. She could parade herself down the aisle as they show pics of her getting gas, and sitting in her white lawn chair at home with her boobs popping out. How fun, good times!

Kate's People said...

Dear Kate's PR People, You might want to just cancel her appearance on Regis & Kelly. She made a fool of herself on the Today Show. We all saw & heard how the real Kate behaved. And we know Steve was there. Obviously you can't make her look good no matter how hard you try. We know the truth. Save yourself from the disgrace,embarrassment & trouble. Just cancel.

pinkdiamond611 said...

Access Hollywod (I think it was a repeat of yesterday's show, it was shown today tues at lunchtime in NY) put a negative spin on Khate. YES!! They highlighted how she simply refuses to answer the questions by answering "for the children". MV asked her what is your response to Yawn when he stated that you asked for the divorce in Oct. Her reply was for the sake of the children, I am not commenting, or something to that regard. That is why TLC is so afraid of Yawn speaking out. It will prove that the entire show is a freakn' sham! Let's think back to the first time I recall the Paps being involved, oh yes when they were at Mr. Chows in Hollywood walking hand in hand and smiling. Many months past Oct 08.

I still would like to know how that website sosugary gets soooo many photos. Usually tons more than the tabloids

I'm looking today at the NY toy store photos there are like 78? Inside the store and all.

Seems like the tabloids only have "outside" shots - but never inside an establishment (?)

----------------------------------
Absolutely!! I've said it before and I'll say it again...TLC is pulling ALL the strings and manipulating the J&K story to be what TLC wants it to be. And the more turmoil the better for ratings, i.e. money. J&K are responsible for their actions and reactions to what's being done, but if they are bound by contract, in the end it's TLC calling the shots and laughing all the way to the bank.

When J&K (and oh by the way, the kids) are no longer profitable, TLC will throw them away without reservation. Hmmm, wonder how Kate will handle that?? I would guess a major meltdown. Hope Jon has the kids when it happens. Jon has made some bad decisions, but at least I think he's real. Kate is just a legend in her own mind.

Ms.Peach said...

If you check out Radar's photos of Kate in NYC with the kids and Steve, she's got the ring on. What a liar.

Oh that Katie Irene is a clever one. She knows exactly when and where she can 'get away' with throwing a temper tantrum without having the proof of her actions appear on the cover of a tabloid or on some entertainment/ gossip internet website. Even when Kate was 'caught' spanking her child, she knew darn well that 'in the court of public opinion' many would agree that she was within her right, as a parent, to discipline her child as she 'deems appropriate'. On the other hand, Kate is a pro at her own 'game' when it comes to avoid 'getting caught in the act' as she has a paid staff of ENABLERS that make sure of it.

Amy said...

I just sent a comment to the Southern Women's Show here in Charlotte saying how disappointing it is to see them invite Kate Gosselin as their key "celebrity" guest.

I received this quick response back:

Thanks for your email. You are not the first to suggest that we cancel Ms. Gosselin’s appearance. We’ve also had many notes and emails thanking us for giving her the opportunity to tell her story – in person - away from the cameras and tabloids. Our plan at this point is to continue to give her that opportunity.

Disgusted said...
Regarding selling the new house (i prefer not to call it a mansion because it's pretty average in a lot of ways to me.) If they can't afford it now, they could not have afforded it a year ago; and they certainly should not have each spent so much money on one bedroom condos. In Texas, you can spend $700K on another 6,000 house that is much more beautiful than the one they are in.
-----------------------------
Disgusted, I read your posts because they're always good.

Just my observation about how some of us refer to the Gosselin Konpound as a "mansion": I lived for awhile in a tony burb of one of Texas' largest cities (15 yrs ago) and I was stunned by what you could buy there from what I'd been accustomed to in Southern California. At the time, we bought a house in Texas for $85,000 that would be going for $290,000 in the Calif. city I'd just left (in, coincidentally, another bad economy, just like this one). I'm back in SoCal now and I can tell you, the Gosselin house, to any of us here, is a multi-million dollar mansion, even in the recent/current downturn. And that's not even considering the land...all those acres (unseen where I live unless you're extremely affluent). Again, I was staggered by the number of gorgeous Texas homes/estates I saw and toured, affordable to pretty much middle-class to upper-middle class folks. (Of course, today, who can even define middle-class anymore?!) When I returned to SoCal, it was a shock to see the high prices of, well, dumps to live in...and this was even before housing prices rose. I tell you, I have missed my Texas house since the day I left it! I looked at the photo of the Gosselin country home on this site and drooled, not so much in envy but just in awe of something so beautiful, with the beautiful grounds and spacious layout of the structure. So, I can't call it anything but a mansion. In terms of beauty, though, its is only outer loveliness...we've learned too much to not know by now that INSIDE that home, there's a whole lot of pain being suffered by one very broken family.

Following up on this:

Disgusted said....
(shortened) "Did anyone read what Kate said at the Austin Expo? Again, she claimed that the show is not hurting her kids because this is their NORMAL. ********************

So, let's put this in another context. Can a pedaphile who has sexually molested a child since birth claim its okay because its their "normal"? Is it okay to beat a child daily and use in court as a defense, it's not abuse because its their "normal"?

Courts and normal human decency reject both arguments as ridiculous. Just because it comes out of someone's mouth no matter how self-important they think they are, it doesn't make it true.

Disgusted said...

Can'tJudgeABookByItsCover said...: I appreciate your thoughts on my posts. I have traveled to many places and seen CA real estate as well as that in the PA area. After having lived in TX forever, it is very easy for us Texans to forget how precious real estate is here because everything truly is bigger here. I don't know how anyone survives in places like CA where the real estate is sky high expensive for, as you said, tiny dumps. Here, we had house guests who didn't realize we had given them a guest room with their own private bath inside it. They expected to have to share their bathroom with the rest of us on the second floor. I have had tons of house guests and never had anyone make that mistake before. But these were from another country so they get a free pass.

Anyway, I digress. The Gosselin house is on an amazing property which would be amazing for anyone. Seeing as how they do not use it at all, at least not much beyond the garage, the driveway, or the pool, it is easy to ignore that they have it. LIkewise, TLC is very careful not to show anymore of the house than they have to. They are limiting their shots now to the kitchen, the family room, and the outdoor patio and basement. They do not show bedrooms or any of the extra bonus rooms that the rest of us consider extraneous. And as others here have noted, it is not nicely decorated because the queen bitch has no taste and won't pay for it. it has to be free for her to have it in her house. And it's not just that she has no taste (dont get me started on her new kitchen design...lol!)

Bottom line--the inside of that house looks like the average, bare basic house. There is nothing extravagant about its design or decor to me that would make me call it a mansion. The only thing that takes it out of the norm is its size and it impresses me little. When I see beautiful marble finished, or mind blowing window treatments, nice furniture, etc, I will reconsider.

CherryCheeseKate said...
Had to chuckle at the "fake KATE" that appeared on the TODAY show (I only watched a clip of her appearance on the RadarOnline site) and it's obvious, she's ONCE AGAIN ~ portraying herself as the true victim in all this. Her "handlers" must have recommended: using her little girl voice, wearing a less spikey doo; putting on a bland-colored demure/tasteful/respectful "Mommy" dress that's to the knees with a high neckline, and with sleeves; lower heeled "old lady" sandals; less makeup and understated jewelry. *BUT*--I'm not fooled ~ it's just a "COSTUME" to come across as something she's not and to gain sympathy/pity! WE'VE ALL SEEN/HEARD/READ ABOUT--THE *REAL* KATE...and it isn't THIS "cardboard cutout" that showed up for the TODAY interview!

777777777777777777777777777

Except, her shoes were not what you describe! LOL!

Now, those were some big, bad high heels with straps. They were not demure.

Disgusted....but normal (maybe). said...

By the way...regarding Kate calling their life the kids' NORMAL....as far as I am concerned this is an admission by her that it isn't really normal at all, just that they are not old enough, experienced, or smart enough to know anything about it and change it.

Thank goodness for the rest of us normal folks here, Too bad, however, the media is failing to see this problem. Why do they ignore the proverbial elephant in the room???! Shame on them all.

Tami said...

It really galls me to see people in FAO Schwartz and outside the Today studio lit up with glee at the sight of Kate. How can people be so easily fooled by this witch? Had I been outside that studio I would have yelled out a few questions that Meredith did not have the nerve to ask! If Steve tried to shut me up I would tell him to hold MY purse and ask him why he chooses to make a fool of himself and his family by associating with Kate and suggest he find a more respectable job than being Kate's man-servant.

Ms.Peach said...

NY Daily News reports:

After hearing that her ex reportedly romanced three twentysomethings in the span of just weeks, nothing should surprise Kate Gosselin. However, Regis Philbin managed to catch the reality star off guard Tuesday morning when she taped a segment on his show.

Insiders say that the interview, which airs Thursday on “Live with Regis and Kelly,” was meant to be light and fluffy in the wake of Kate’s “Today” show breakdown this week. But it turned serious when Philbin went off-script and bluntly asked whether Kate could see herself reconnecting with hubby Jon.

“I can’t and won’t answer that,” the uncomfortable octomom said, stating firmly, “I keep certain things private, and that’s one.”

Perhaps the 77-year-old host should have kept his opinions similarly discreet, but he didn’t. “I think you [and your husband] will get back together and live happily ever after,” Philbin said. “I think everything is going to work itself out — he’ll say he’s sorry, that he loves you and everything will be good.”

A shocked Kate had no response as the show cut to a commercial break.

Later in the interview, Kate confessed her hope that she and Jon can get past their animosity, despite his recent extracurricular activities. The 32-year-old has squired wild child Hailey Glassman and former tabloid reporter Kate Major — and last weekend, reports surfaced that he’d spent the night with a 23-year-old baby-sitter who’d been caring for his kids. Regardless, Kate said her goal is to enjoy holidays and family time together again — unmarried.

“I didn’t expect my life to be like this,” Gosselin said, her voice cracking.

Says one audience member: “The only thing that seemed to be holding Kate together was Kelly [Ripa]. They really clicked — you could tell Kelly was completely sympathetic. Kate seemed so down. Even during the break, she appeared to be on the verge of tears.”

Kate has enough on her plate without worrying about her ex. Luckily for her, Jon’s Monday-night E! tell-all was killed because he reportedly hadn’t cleared it with TLC, the network to which he’s under contract for “Jon and Kate Plus 8.”

A TLC flack declined to comment, while a rep for E! simply said: “The interview is canceled.”

A NEW CAR FOR JON AND HAILEY???

Radaronline says:

Let Kate Gosselin drive the kids around in a big Toyota Land Cruiser, her "husband" Jon and not-a-fling Hailey are looking for something a little sleeker.

Jon, 32, and Hailey, 22, went shopping near New City, New York, a wealthy suburb of New York City, for a Mercedes and also looked at a Porsche, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.

Reality (TV) clearly doesn't bite for this new couple, ready to plunk down the Benjamins for a ride that probably will fit only a few, at most, of Jon's eight children.

A RadarOnline.com car shopper spotted Jon recently taking a good look a various models of Mercedes, and not focusing on the M Class (which seats five and is a sport-utility vehicle). No, think in terms of more acceleration, as in going from married to dating in 4.3 seconds!

We're still not sure if the final purchase will be for Jon, Hailey or both. Jon's unhappy with his new BMW we hear and Hailey wants a Porsche.

We had no idea that Jon & Kate Plus 8 paid so well.

Two clueless idiots said...

I saw some brief clips of the Today Show interview on some entertainment show last night. I just wanted to tell Kate, like I do my children, "Use your big girl voice...I can't understand baby talk." Where in the HECK did that voice come from? It reminded me of Madonna's fake British accent that she adopted a few years ago after she moved to England! I also thought that her answers were totally scripted and it was obvious that she had memorized and practiced them over and over again. I didn't detect one ounce of sincerity, humility or genuine emotion in anything I heard.

Sorry but that main pic? She shows just how truly nasty-Arse she really is. THAT is the TRUE "KHate." Emphasis on the "Hate" part.
Again I say, how sad her parents must be - and how ashamed of such a self-absorbed, BITCHY, narcissistic person they "raised", oh and that she is a very poor mom and No , I am NOT referring to money.
As they say lately: "Nast."

I smell a rat. Why would Khate answer the question that Regis asked "Do you think you will get back with Jon", with the reply "I can't and won't answer that question". HUH???? Then Regis says something like, I have a feeling it will all work out. MAYBE because Kelly Rippa also has a show on TLC she told Regis the "plan".????? If this is one big scam and they are putting the kids through this heartache for the sake of money, the children should definitely be taken away from them. That is abuse, plain and simple.

Janine said...

Regis and Kelly tomorrow for K8... This is sick. A little like Mommie Dearest... a little "Baby Jane" when Mady kicks a sibling and K8 tells the younger, smaller, hurt child to stop their offensive action and Mady won't kick them. This is getting really, bad. I hope TLC reads this. People will continue to watch this train wreck because gore is interesting, but the kids are already in severe danger and the "memory" their mother gave them of surveying the horizon "ALL MINE"... It's very sad. The kids faces say it all. Jon, I had more hope for you. Put your kids first and stop acting like a 15 year old with his first playboy.

Above quoted by Ms. Peach; thanx, Ms. Peach. Wow. What an odd thing coming out of Regis' mouth; that's just not like him as he's a seasoned non-news interviewer/host. I agree with pinkdiamond611 who said, "I smell a rat." We're being played, people; we just don't know what...yet.

NotGoodForYourHealth, Kate! said...

So, I ask you, WHY keep putting yourself in the position of being on display? If it's not an act, it's some sort of self-abuse. If it's a TLC requirement for the contract that Kate make a specific number of appearances, then shame on them. I can't stand her, but I just can't see digging your own grave like this...putting yourself thru this kind of torture when it's your personal life (which is supposed to be private). My gosh, I hope I'm never in a position in my life where I would be so trapped/motivated over money. Light a match to all of it and just walk away. I dunno...she may be reaping what she's sown. Maybe this is when karma convenes. I feel a pressure cooker about to blow big-time.

Disgusted said, "Bottom line--the inside of that house looks like the average, bare basic house. There is nothing extravagant about its design or decor to me that would make me call it a mansion."
-------------------------------
ITA, actually. I was never talking about the inside or how it's decorated. No matter if it was the old house or this one, I always thought it was bland and bare decorating...not even anything bright or pretty on the walls for the kids' bedrooms, which I thought was so odd. When I'm drooling over the "mansion," what I'm loving about the place is spaciousness...so much room to move around in, outside and even inside (from what we've been allowed to see). I live in a vintage California bungalow which is of TheNotSoBigHouse idea/era (the anti-McMansion) where no space is wasted (believe me, I'd love to waste some space; this is cramped living for the 21st century) so, of course, I am spellbound by the size of the Gosselin "estate." I love the architecture/design of their house's exterior...I think it's a "pretty" (attractive) house from the photo posted here as a view from above...and I thought the kitchen was fantastic just the way it was, and so nice to have that fireplace in the dining area.

Anyway, thanks for your expanded observations...I totally get you about the interiors; they could have brought in a child-friendly professional decorator and to coin a fave Gosselin word, the place could look "AWESOME" with a decorator's touches. The Gosselins could have certainly afforded it.

Sigh, yep, I'm missing my Texas home. Texans know how to do it right when it comes to fine living but they could sure use help on the weather (ha)! Did ya get a load of how beautifully green that Gosselin landscape is...the rolling green lawns? Southern California is drought-ridden and we've shriveled up like old brown prunes here; water rationing is already in place. I've never been to Pennsylvania but after seeing the photo of the Gosselin Konpound, I would really like to see these areas that keep popping up like Lower Heidelberg, Wyomissing, Hershey...love the names.

To end this, sigh again...if it could only be different for the Gosselin kids living in such a nice environment! On the surface, the situation's got so many right ingredients...lots of play area outside (if we can just get them off the darn driveway); big 'ol house with lots of room for a big family; dogs and a pool; not too far from relatives (if they could only see them); not that far from NYC; interesting local environs...plus the family has lots of money so they don't have some of the worries the rest of us do. It all could have turned out so well...fairytale, dreamy life, in the best sense of the word.

But, same concept, that's why a cake falls in the oven when you don't start out with the proper ingredients. The highest-quality vanilla goes unnoticed if you forget the flour. All the material riches in the world aren't going to help the Gosselins if their circumstance is suspect and was skewed from its beginnings. It’s a sad, sad story.

I agree the photoshopping of Jon's face on recent magazine covers is not flattering or appear 'natural' at all . I think the In Touch(?) cover has to be the worst yet. Your comparison to Wayne Newton is spot on.

sgw555 said...

Am I the only one who noticed this:

On the Today show, Kate said she lives at home, that that's where she belongs, etc. (with the clear implication that SHE'S living in the house - and at home - full-time), and implies that Jon is (a) not living there and (b) out gallivanting all over the place while she takes care of the kids...

...and then she says that when she's not in the house with the kids, she's 'in hiding', and Meredith Viera clarifies - and she agrees - that when she's 'in hiding' she is in fact living in another domicile.

...except in the 'divorce' episode (and in other episodes since) she's definitely said that it's the KIDS living in the house while she and Jon BOTH take turns staying there with them.

In other words, Kate tried (and succeeded, if you weren't paying attention or knew the show) to make it out like she's at home with the kids 24/7 and Jon is living elsewhere and only around once in a while.

I've never really minded that Jon and Kate have become fairly wealthy from the show (because it's giving the kids opportunities they would NEVER otherwise have had), and in fact I didn't really blame Kate for wanting to seize her opportunities (let's face it: wouldn't we all like to be a celebrity for a while? see our names on a book? get flown to exotic places that we'd never have been able to afford on our own? of course!).

But...

I'm finding myself really, REALLY revolted by Kate's fakeness. For example, in the Today Show interview she drones on about all the 'sacrifices' she's made for her kids.

WHAT?!

Sure, in the first couple of years of having the sextuplets, it was a lot of work and there wasn't much money, etc. (though many people in their late 20s don't have houses like J+K did). But I'm sick of hearing about her 'sacrifices', when SHE'S NOT MAKING THEM ANY MORE.

It's like if I took a trip to Club Med for a week, and then instead of telling everyone how great it was, I said, "Oh, I really did it for my husband, so he could have some time by himself at home..."

It's sort of like the Tom Cruise thing: At first everyone loved him; then he was 'the celebrity you love to hate'; and now he's just kind of creepy and icky, and no one wants to go to his movies any more.

Kate's still in Phase II, but I predict she'll have hit the Tom Cruise ick factor within 12 months.

What an intriguing comment! I think you nailed it. They sink their own boats.

New People magazine has more with Kate....with "I cry all the time" on the cover, guess she rips into Jon big time ( no surprise) so far. at leasts not gone off about her... intresting how TLC wont let him get his side out but shes allowed to yak to everyone and anyone that will give her the time of day.

Exhausted said...

What really gets my goat is how dumb the sheeple are--how they believe the whole ruse. I'm sure they think that Kate pulls up to the Today interview in a humble van all by herself, and that she immediately leaves the interview to go make lunch for those kids. The reality is that she and Jon do so little parenting these days, but the sheeple think Kate washes the floors, packs the lunches, and puts in a screen if need be.

And why does a respectable show even give this gross person the time of day?

I've never really minded that Jon and Kate have become fairly wealthy from the show (because it's giving the kids opportunities they would NEVER otherwise have had), and in fact I didn't really blame Kate for wanting to seize her opportunities (let's face it: wouldn't we all like to be a celebrity for a while? see our names on a book? get flown to exotic places that we'd never have been able to afford on our own? of course!)."

I wouldn't mind them getting fairly wealthy from the show - if A) I thought that they were a) saving 80% of the money for the children since without the children there is no show to get wealthy from and B) I saw a shred of humility or gratitude. They don't seem to have a clue about how truly fortunate (financially) they have been, and their donations of yard sale proceeds notwithstanding, I don't really think they are truly giving back to the community for the right reasons. (I can't help but contrast their attitudes with those of my kids. One has spent the past 2 years in Americorps - living below the poverty line helping others. The other got laid off in June, got a job offer for a very well-paid job the same day he got his first unemployment check. So he donated his unemployment income to charity. Does anyone think that either Jon or Kate would even think of doing either of those two things? )

As for whether or not we'd all like to get flown places we've never been - there are ways to do that without exploiting our children. I've flown to San Diego, San Antonio, Dallas, Orlando, Myrtle Beach, Paris, Nice, and Barcelona. Didn't pay for any of those trips because they were business trips. Kate and Jon could get jobs - real ones, the kind you have to get up every morning and decide more than "beach or pool? pool or beach?" But again, that would require a different mindset than we've seen in either one of them lately.

Lol, not only would Jon or Kate never do those things, they can't even leave a decent tip. I am dead serious when I say those two idiots probably think giving their server the privilege of waiting on them is tip enough

pinkdiamond611 said...

Radar has the headline K.G. Homecoming Party with family and friends! Then you look at the pics and there is nobody there except the kids and an older couple. Oh of course they had to zoom into some bags from FAO filled with coloring books. As if these kids need anymore toys. Of course there had to be pics of Khate shopping for the kids before she went and bought some expensive clothes for herself.

Interesting Comment said...

I was listening to Howard Stern this morning and Joan Rivers was on. Can't remember how they got on the topic but they talked about octomom and then Howard asked if she'd ever heard of "those other two idiots - Kate and Jon, or something like that". Howard wasn't sure who they were becasue he donesn't watch but they're all over the tabs. Joan said that she'd heard of them but never watched. She then went on to say (and I pulled to the side to write it down): "When you have 8 kids it's no longer about you it's about the kids so get the "F" out of here and go home and take care of your kids!"

Interesting Comment 2 said...

Oh, I remember how the subject (Joan Rivers & Howard Stern) came up, they were talking about Angelina Jolie and all her kids which led to octomom (Joan thinks she should be put away) which lead to Jon & Kate....

Tired said...

Ahhhh

On Regis and Kelly, it didn;t seem to me she got real upset about the possible reconciliation question...

BUT

Regis asked her "why not just stop the show?' and that seemed to throw her a little. She answered with "you can only go forward" and that this was their means of support.

Otherwise of interest: she said what we see is very filtered and don't see the whole story. What happened to this being "the most real reality show"?

Yeah, integrity is a big word. They keep telling us integrity is important, then she throws out things like that. What are we: stupid, to them?

My Opinion said...

I agree with other posters above and have said all along that we're being played for the ratings. They will get back together. It's all about the money and always has been. The ratings on that show will go through the roof! Why do you think she's been spotted coming in and out of his "pad" in NYC. What a cruel thing to do to your kids.

Sad very sad said...

Not a coming home party or bash. It's just Nana Joan and her hubby stopping by for a visit. Not a biggie after all at all.

C'villeGa mom said...

I was glad to see that Regis went off the beaten path to ask Kate questions she was not expecting. I don't think he does this to most of his guests. He admitted to not watching the show, but surely he did his homework before she came on. I take it he thought she should stop the show, just by the tone of the question. If more questions like this were asked of Jon and Kate, maybe they would see they do not have the public support they think they have. I actually think Regis did a better job than the Today show. He at least caught her offguard.

bcsurvivor2001 said...

I took a quick look at the "sneak peak" video on Live with Regis and Kelly's website.

My initial reaction was to actually LOL (literally) - when Regis started out with he didn't know anything about their show - had seen/read about them in the tabloids - but since she was coming for the interview he watched "one" recent episode.

Now that is just toooo funny to me. How many seasons? How much contraversy - and Regis had never seen/heard of the infamouns Jon&Kate Plus 8 show?

:):):):):)

But I'll say it again - I smell a major rat/set up about all of this. They are losing ground very quickly.

This interview is a lot more light hearted than the Today show.

And if she doesn't want to answer any of the "questions" - why is she even on these shows?

Ms.Peach said...

I know some of you are conspiracy theorists (I am too because I believe a psychologically impaired Kate used her familiarity with her doctor to speed up fertility treatments) but Jon and Kate getting back together? Seriously? Are they that good as actors? Yes, it would be a ratings bonanza, but Kate didn't answer Regis because TLC wants to keep that card up their sleeve and keep the viewers, er, sheeple, watching. No, they're done as a married couple but don't be surprised if TLC keeps Kate on in some new type of show. I think Jon is "reality show roadkill" just like the Chicago TV said.

mom-of-one said...

I just wrote a scathing email to Regis & Kelly show. They will probably never see it but it made me feel better. Kelly actually commented on how much she loved her HAIR? Are you kidding me? And Kelly gushed over what a "great mom" Kate is. Give me a break. I told Kelly how disappointed I was that a fellow mother can't see through the convoluted lies that this woman has been telling the public for 4 years, and that I saw through Kelly's ruse, and she cross-promoted a fellow TLC program since she is now a TLC'er herself.

I'm so sick to my stomach.

rosie said...

Yes, that's Kate's idea of a big bash. Two people, old neighbors. Big Deal.

Thoughts2Ponder said...

Radar has a new posting about the divorce being over in Sept. I reallllllllllllly wanna know how they got this done so quickly. In PA its well knows how long it takes to get things finalized. I am in the middle of a divorce case, I was served in April, its considered a simple case and I was told it would take 18 months. We are still waiting on a ruling on a court hearing that happened 7 weeks ago.
Somethings odd here.

LOL said...

Kate said today that she would never bring another man into her house with the children. Time is a ticking on this bombshell. You can't keep it a secret FOREVER Kate.

Mel Gibson, NCAA basketball coaches, Governors are all coming out of hiding. You will be next.

Ms.Peach said...

New tabloid (highlights of magazine scans) stories:

PEOPLE - Usual kissing up to Kate. She was with the boys at a working dude ranch in Wyoming for filming on July 30.

ENQUIRER - Jon is compiling evidence that Kate is an unfit mother through film. Jon is also compiling email, text and eyewitnesses on her relationship with Steve.

US WEEKLY - TLC blocked Jon's interview on E! Jon is pissed about Kate's interview on Today. Early Aug. Kate was at the Universal's Island of Adventure filming with the tup girls. When she was at the dude ranch with the boys, unfriendly to the workers. Jon is trying to get his own divorced dad reality show. Jon only spends time with the kids when the cameras are rolling.

STAR - Kate threw out some of Jon's clothes and cut up an Ed Hardy shirt, got rid of photos of him in the house.

(I also saw Jon say in an interview that his wedding ring is missing and Kate is the only one with a key to the garage apt.)

So folks, the divorce will be nasty.

Ms.Peach said...

Radaronline says divorce will be final the end of September.

BUT GET THIS---RadarOnline.com has learned that Hailey is going to stay away from the kids - until after the divorce. That means sometime around late September we're all going to see her interacting with the kids. Can anyone say RATINGS? Can you believe that those two morons are doing this to their children publicly?

pinkdiamond611 said...

I flip-flop back and forth if this break up is real or a set up, but I always think back to a couple of months ago where somebody posted a plan for the season, including the introduction of shocking characters. Whatever, it just doesn't add up. How can you file for divorce in June and have it finalized in Sept??? I thought you had to go to the Dominican Republic for a quickie divorce? And how did the custody get settled so quickly? Who is paying for support? Something is just not right.

Ms.Peach said...

So anyone know PA divorce law? How come this got through so quick in 3 months? So, then Jon, Jodi and Kevin must have the correct timeline that in October she told him it was over and they separated and Kate was lying on the Today Show? Did Jon use his evidence about Steve to get what he wanted from Kate regarding custody/money? Very, very interesting. Talk about fast tracked! Why?

Dunwoody Mom said...

Oh, come on now, what did you expect from Kelly Ripa? She's not the sharpest tack in the pile.

Pattypanda said...

Kudos to Regis. He asked better questions than Merrideth.Wish he asked Kate why they don't get jobs instead of continuing to exploit th kids. The anyone count today's UM's?

TooLateToRetrieveCredibility said...

My husband was home from work this morning and was channel surfing, called in to me, "hey, that Gozling woman is on the Regis show," so of course I walked in and watched (gag). I said to him, "well, my, my, she is SO poised (and well-rehearsed)." I expected the defensive answer to "why continue to film" but what I didn't expect at the end of the interview was Regis agreeing with Kelly Ripa about Kate doing such a good job, blah, blah, blah. I said to my husband, "pooh, pooh, yeck" (or something to that order). Regis, you disappoint me, buddy. What I really came away with is how hard Kate is trying to describe herself as a celebrity when she's basically a nobody outside of her own small world. She made sure she let the audience know she's followed by paparazzi and on the covers of magazines. She's smug although she tries to portray herself otherwise. The degree of self-importance is staggering. It's all about Kate. The kids are just her intro. I hate the way she uses them to elicit empathy about being followed by paparazzi when she obviously courts the paparazzi. I thought it was interesting she pretty much substantiated what some people have said on this site that the bodyguard(s) may in fact be there to stop her meltdowns in public, i.e. her story about reciting stuff out of a tabloid when at a store in front of a shopper. You know somebody is reading the comments on this site...when posters here said they turn the magazines around in store racks which feature her on the cover...because they've taken that and now she says she does it; yeah, right. Even my husband (who always says about her and Jon, "who CARES?") was smirking and said, "I think she's pitching for sainthood."

I wish I didn't have to feel this way about anybody...it's a lot of negative energy...but how can Kate expect any other reaction from the public after we've been duped and jerked around by her, Jon and TLC?

Tami said...

Early Aug. Kate was at the Universal's Island of Adventure filming with the tup girls.
*******
Probably they are not welcome back at Disney because of icecream-gate. lol. My thoughts on Hate not answering Regis about getting back with Jon--no, then she can't play the poor me I am the abandoned victim role. Think about it. If she says she would never take him back, sheeple might think, 'hmm..I thought she was sad and lonely and was the one who was walked out on and now she doesn't want him?' What a fraud.

Pattypanda said...

I'm starting to think this is all for show and that there will be a reconciliation for ratings. The ratings were under 3M this week.

They keep telling us integrity is important, then she throws out things like that. What are we: stupid, to them?"
---------------------------------
This is a very good point. They always talk out of both sides of their mouth, or whatever that expression is. I would like to see a split screen of old footage with her two spiked heads...one saying one thing, and the other contradicting it. She has said something to the effect in the past, "what you see is what we are" but now she's saying it's filtered. So, which is it, TLC?

Wow - busy week wouldn't ya say? All this and 2 talk shows too. And they don't like being under the public microscope huh? yeah right.

Well - they are running out of other stuff to call on each other - so since the actual divorce date is within reach - we'll start hearing about all that ammunition.

I too would like to know how they're getting thru the hoops so quicly. In Michigan - my daughter HAD to wait a MINIMUM of 6 months after her ex was served for the final decree - because they had a child.

So since the official date this one was filed was end of June - it should be minimum December cuz of all the kids - unless PA is different (?)

Interesting...............6 months prior to end of September would be in March - wasn't that when we first saw the tabloid pix of "cheating"?

teachergirl said...

PA Divorce law is three months...I was just divorced and we are a no fault state as well so if they agreed to terms, it would be finished by September.
