I wonder if all of the negative comments about Kate at the bulletin board on The View's webpage will have any impact on the people who put on the show. I'd like to think so, but I'm skeptical that the comments will make any difference.

The View, like all of the other places Khate speaks at, is not interest in Khate. They only care about $$$ and viewership (remember Eileen O'Neill talking about how hard it was to "walk away from the numbers"). The View is now officially on the "We made money from the exploitation of the 8 Gosselin children"...all with the blessing of thier "mother".

3rd Rock From The Sun said...

I think that Kate will make a fool of herself on the View. She just doesn't fit in with all of those women. I hope that Barbara Walters asks Kate some of the hard questions and puts her on the spot.

ANSWER: NOPE.

rural mom said...

Kate will shine on the View. She is Bill Geddes's dream, similar to Hasselbeck, she'll spout any given opinion as her own, she'll flog any product, she'll lie straight into the camera without flinching, heck she'll even put up her own children if there is a buck to be made doing so. I expect they will welcome her with open arms and make a big deal showing their support for her and not Jon. And you can bet she'll be cashing all those "ums" and "for the sake of my kids" straight to the bank.

Weekend girl said...

I will not watch the View, not ever.

Kannie said...

Don't know if BaWa will be there during Khate's co-hosting days. If she is and has any journalisitic integrity, she must ask Khate tough questions about:

-accusations she's exploiting her kids
-discrepencies in the Jon break-up timeline; what agreements the pair made to maintain the 'Gosselin Brand' while living separate lives
-the exact nature of her association with bodyguard Steve
-why she's estranged from her family of origin and her sister in law Jodie
-why Beth Carson is no longer on the program
-what provisions are being made for the future support of the children
-and much much more!!

I predict Walters won't be there because The View wants to avoid asking the tough questions. To do so would risk humiliating a guest host. The View doesn't want to scare away other prospective guest hosts by giving Khate a rough ride.

I won't be watching.

Janice in NC said...

I have left so many negative comments on The View's site, but I don't think it's done any good. I now left a msg asking that the ladies ask Kate the TOUGH questions that the public wants answered. Ask about exploitation issues, her lies about "no help" (and she had nannies), what blame she takes for the divorce, how does she rationalize putting her kids on tv to live through their parents' nasty divorce....etc etc. I can't see Joy kiss her butt, but she may just not say much at all. Also said to ask Kate about the Obama healthcare plan, economy issues and how she can sit on tv every week bragging her millions. I despise that women, right along with Jon. I won't watch or tape it. No ratings from me! I said in my msg. to The View that they could be the FIRST to ask Kate the real questions and watch their ratings go through the roof. Look forward to recap here. Just hope alot of people do not watch!!

Sugarpop said...

I will not be watching, and I will never watch the View again unless I hear that the ladies of the View asked Kate all the hard-hitting questions that we here at GWOP want answers to. It's unbelievable to me that there are so many people who either don't see or are ignoring who Kate really is.

My favorite Maya Angelou quote is: "When someone shows you who they really are...believe them."

organizedblogroll said...

It totally suxs that Kate is on the first day of the new season. Kinda guarantees great ratings.....

boo abc. I WON'T BE WATCHING.

Aunt Chris said...

You can be sure that Khate will have on her wedding ring and one of the women will bring it up, they'll all get quiet as Khate says it's for the kids. Gimme a break - the kids know Dad's not living with them, hasn't lived with HER in months, if not years, and some stupid ring wouldn't mean a thing to them anyway. She wears it because it's a big chunk of bling, a symbol of their "happy life" sham, and it doesn't look like she bought herself an expensive present with the kids money - which of course is exactly what they both have been doing.

keeblerc said...

So Khate will be on "The View" for two days and not a week? I wonder who the guests will be during her stint and how she'll do interviewing them? I hear what you're saying, Rural Mom, and you have me thinking....I do think it will be a challenge for Khate to show an interest in anyone other than herself though.

JTS said...

I have a feeling it will be a real lovefest. Dr. Phil loves Kate and will give her plenty of support. If he is asked about the children being filmed I can almost hear him saying " if the children are happy and healthy and aren't showing any signs of stress then there isn't anything wrong with it". Of course Kate will say they are fine.

I can also hear him supporting her as far as the negativity surrounding her letting her know he gets the same thing and just ignores it.

One good thing, Taylor Swift is suppose to be on Tuesday. Taylor comes from Wyomissing the same neighborhood where Jon and Kate had their first house when the babies were born. That will probably be mentioned. It's a shame that this area is best know for the horrible Gosselins instead of Taylor. She seems to be so sweet and nice to everyone. She is so young and has more class than Kate will ever have.

MickeyMcKean said...

As I posted on The View's message board, which was a first for me, I was a fan of their show until I heard Kate was going to be a co-host.

I will not be watching. I will not tape it.

I will, however, read recaps here and unless one of the women finds a backbone and puts Kate on the spot, I will not watch The View again.

NOTE TO DISNEY - thought you would want to know that this weekend we discussed what the family wants to do for Christmas break and when a trip to Disneyland for the week was mentioned I immediately said, "NO WAY! I'm boycotting Disney due to Kate. Sorry!"

Rebecca said...

On The View's bulletin board is one particularly well-written and comprehensive statement about what is wrong with the Gosselin situation. I tried to repost the comment, which was written by someone calling herself "disappointed12," but it was too long to repost here. I encourage you guys to check it out:

http://theview.abc.go.com/forum/reality-tv-mom-kate-gosselin-co-host-september-tell-us-what-she-should-discuss?page=23

It wouldn't surprise me at all if the poster is part of the GWoP community - if you read this, disappointed12, please accept my thanks for articulating such a well-reasoned and caring statement on behalf of those kids.

I hope the same!!! However, I doubt if any of The View people will challenge her one bit. You know this appearance was arranged by Julie carson May, Khate's PR manager and I am certain Julie May put in the contract that Khate is to be pandered to like a poor lost,soul who is now raising 8 kids alone. Meaning - they will all kiss her a$$ big time. Khate has nothing to say - she cannot make conversation and she CANNOT engage with people at any level. BabyMama and her ilk will be glued to their TV sets and think Khate is just outstanding.

YOU GOT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Susan said...

I think it would be great if Kate got a full-time hosting gig. She'd earn enough to quit the show. I want the kids off the show. However, I honestly wonder how J&K are going to make a living. No one is going to hire Jon as a computer tech. No one is going to hire Kate to be a nurse. The kids have to eat. They made the bed but the kids have to sleep in it.

Lucy said...

Rebecca 3:27 p.m.

No. If anything the remarks prove to the producers that Kate is well-known and viewers who like and dislike her are interested in what she has to say.

Lucy said...

3rd Rock,

They're not having her on the show to interview her--she's one of the hosts. They expect the ratings to go up for that reason, I'm sure.

Lucy said...

Rebecca,

It's a shame that the statement to which you refer will be lost among all those that are so repetitious.

fidosmommy said...

It looks like The View is going to
condone the sacrifice of small children at the altar of ratings. I had hoped they would see reason, but I guess not.

I am woefully disappointed in this show that has the potential to be a catalyst for change and chooses to go for the hype instead.

Pamela Jaye said...

I don't think I can watch the View. Of course it's annoying, as any show with 5 female hosts who speak female (talk all over each other) can be, and then... Kate.
I'd curious to know what happens but... I can only barely force myself to watch when they have a guest I like.
I know I'm not alone, as this bit of dialogue from Scrubs explains

J.D.: The point is, Turk, if someone tried to pull the plug on you without being totally honest with me, you know where they'd end up?
Turk: In Hell, watching 'The View'!
J.D.: Next to the super high, unreachable cupcake table.

I honestly don't remember the circumstances that led to it, but I remember "in hell, watching the "'View'." It made me think - so it's not just me!

btw, (probably someone has thought of this before, but) I just realized why Jon is on Twitter (if he is)

jongosselin1
Happy to be at House of Hype/Talent Resources VMA After Party at The Rivington- sponsored by Starbucks VIA

a lot of people are on Twitter *to promote themselves.*
I apologize for being a bit slow. I think it's cause I twitter just to discuss things (with friends, actors, writers, and the occasional TV critic (got a reply from Marie Osmond one day. that was cool)) and yes, occasionally to Save Chuck.

But if it's really Jon, he can now Twitter on behalf of whoseever event he's at. and zillions of eyeballs will see it. In fact, it's almost like "Hey, Kate, I can get more attention than you and I don't even have to *be on the show.*" (or even on TV)
Teenage rebellion, you think?

Tami said...

Hate is going to say she is taking the high road and will not discuss Jon---while lying about how great she is as a mother. And the women will all throw her a pity party for her plight, which of course is no fault of her own. Gag.

Ohio Buckeye said...

My guess is that the whole View performance will be geared to damage control/image polishing about Miss Thing.

Recall that she's very practiced at lying and manipulation. So, prepare to see her play K8, the victim, K8 the brave single mom martyr, K8, who is 'taking the high road' (gag, barf, not buying it - too much evidence to the contrary - do they think we are deaf, dumb, AND blind?).

Remember, too, she's already played the whole "I am a Christian" role to award (and donations$$$) winning levels, so this is just Act 2 of 'what a good Christian and mom am I' schtick (no offense to anyone of any religion - K8 is a fraud.

Joy, Sherry, and, sadly, even Whoopi are already in on the ruse. They, too, will jump on K8's newest bandwagon, trying to use Jon's recent behavior to make K8 look saintly by comparison.

Sure to be a real gag-a-rama.

I won't be watching. It's all b.s.

MomIAm said...

So has it been about a year since Kate told Jon their marriage was over? Didn't that supposedly happen in October?

They love the amount of traffic generaed by just the announcement that Kate will be on. They know the people who love Kate will watch and many of the people who hate will watch to rag on he performance. Besides THE VIEW thrives on controversy.

Kate will go away when everybody stops talking about her on all those sites out there. I don't see that happening any time soon.

Snap! said...

Why do all these people become famous? Kate is the Tanya Harding or Joey Buttofuoco of this decade.
In 10 years we will see her on shows- whatever happened to....

No Drama Mama said...

Ugh. Today is the day. I am setting my DVR.... Why? Not sure. Curiosity killed the cat I guess!

Who dropped the kids off at the bus today? Betcha no pics of the nanny show up online.

If these 2 idiots haven't made and banked enough money by now to feed, house and school their children through adulthood that's THEIR fault!! They've made/scammed more in 2-1/2 years that most of us will EVER see in our lifetimes!

yeaisaidthat said...

'Hate is going to say she is taking the high road and will not discuss Jon--'

Kate may very well utilize HER air time on The View to say she is 'taking the HIGH road' when it comes to commenting on her divorce from Jon , but truth be known, the 'road to to HELL is paved with good intentions'. By the looks of things, Ms. Gosselin's mapquest thru life has her reaching the above destination as predicted!!!

Laurie said...

The ladies of the view are going to spoon feed pablum to khate. They don't invite folks on to "guest host" to bash them. If khate is wearing an earpiece she will spout whatever her handler whispers in her ear. However, if she were to get her own show, it wouldn't last. She would not be able to sustain anything for long because she is not a bright woman, is not interested in anyone but herself and does not even try to engage anyone.

cdnmom47 said...

I'm so happy to read that alot of GWOP'ers won't be watching 'The View' with Kate 'co-b.s.ing' this week.

It would be lovely if NO ONE watched.

Team 8 said...

Kate only agreed to the show if she was promised they'd go easy on her. Do you really think her PR team would let her on any show unless promises were made as a pre-condition?

I hope somebody does a summary of the show as I will not be watching.

Maude said...

I ask the question again:
How does this woman keep coming out on top?

Just read through 20 pages of the View comments. I counted 7 posts that were NOT anti-Kate. At about 10 posts per page that would make over 190 comments negative.

Here are the terms most used to describe Kate:

exploiter
liar
entitled
greedy
abusive
narcissistic
arrogant

This is not an "anti-Kate" site. Is this is a fair representation of public opinion?

Is she hired ONLY for the controversy she creates?

If so what a sad, pathetic commentary on our society.

Sorry, don't mean to be a downer, but sometimes with the suffering that is going on in our country right now I really do get down when I see people like Kate win.

Miss said...

I'll bet my last piece of pie that Kate will walk out onto the stage of The View and wave her fake Homecoming Queen wave. I will opt to
go and scrub my toilet bowl instead that you very much.

I'm Watching You said...

I hesitate to write this but have decided to venture forth and do it anyway. As an astrologer, it is fun to sometimes watch how various planetary aspects affect well-known people. Since September 4th and thru the 18th, Kate has a very negative aspect that can cause meltdowns.

Serena Williams also has this affecting her chart, and she just got thrown out of a tournament due to a meltdown.

It's hard to say whether the meltdown already occurred when Jon had his tv interview or whether it will happen while she is on The View. Interestingly, Joy Behar is also affected during this time period. Maybe the two will clash? Or maybe someone will verbally attact the two of them over something?

At any rate, it will be interesting to watch for.

Kharma4Khate said...

5 minutes in to the show and so far the plan seems to be to ignore Kate and not let her get a word in edge wise.

It is awkward ... Kate looks like the unpopular kid at the cool girls lunch table trying hard to fit in and not succeeding.

Snap! said...

Wow it's 11:07- and the women haven't acknowledged Kate's presence yet- very interesting- I have never seen a guest host treated this way before!

mommynMO said...

1. Barbara is not there. 2. They seem to totally be ignoring Kate...ahhahha and 3. I don't think her microphone is hot all the time, cause I see lips moving and no sound...like a Britney concert...changing the channel now

Low Rider said...

Sherry started off the hard questions....and Kate skirts. Typical.

Taking the high road is NOT an explanation.

Gimme a Break said...

OH MY GOSH!!!!


"Is ANYBODY paid enough?"

Are you KIDDING ME?!?

She really thinks she deserves millions for being herself. I'm going to barf.

mommynMO said...

LMFAO...Whoopie just told Kate it's not ok to make up words, ask an English teacher....lol...way to go Whoopie!!!

tallblonde said...

So far, they're going REALLY easy on Kate. Not wanting to appear shallow, did the 'tups spill something all over the front of her top? ;-) At least I'm thankful she's not in a jean shirt and wearing a hat....*LOL*

Megan said...

ok I broke down and watch the first segment with Kate on.

She says that she HAS to support her children now that she is a single mom blah blah and she HAS to work blah blah.

ok. great. THEN WHY DO YOUR KIDS HAVE TO WORK??!?!?!?!!?

Why doesn't anyone ever ask her this freaking question??!?!

I'm going for a run, I'll catch the recap on here later. UGH.

GAmom said...

To spare everyone from watching this train wreck good ole' kate just said the following on the View:

"I'm doing it for my kids"
"I'm a single mom, I HAVE to support them"
"I have never forced them to do anything for the cameras"
"I am taking the high road"

And my favorite (when asked if she made enough money):
"Does anyone EVER make enough money?"

No challenges, from anyone.

Never watch the View, and now I know why. These ladies are so lame.

ABadViewofKate said...

"Positivity is not a word." Thank you Whoopi.

And who the heck is Kate Gosselin to give an opinion on whether or not Michelle Duggar should have another child? Last time I checked the nurse [how long did Kate actual work as an L&D nurse, a year?] is NOT Mrs. Duggars' doctor.

I can't believe Kate is so jealous of the Duggars that she would have to say "Parts wear out." Puhleese.

Krista said...

Watching Khate on The View. So far, they're all talking over each other and she's not getting much time to speak. She is trying to insinuate herself into every topic but so far, she's looking like an idiot, as expected. She came right out and said she needs to continue the show to support her kids. I wished someone would have told her to go back to a regular job. So far no one has really pinned her down on anything.

keighteraide said...

this is ridiculous. so many perfect moments to stick one to kate ("michael jackson never had a childhood")

it does seem like she is super out of place and the ladies acknowledging her sparingly. kates people or someone has told her to not speak until spoken to, and the view girls have to save her every time she tries unsuccessfully to be funny. oh, and her posture sucks. next time they need to put her in a different chair. or not on stage at all...

One Size Does Not Fit All said...

Kate is struggling to fit in. She looks very uncomfortable and you can tell she's working hard to figure out the next thing to say..waiting for her moment...and then misses it. She's the obvious odd man out.

And I think it would be interesting to see if we can get a count on how many times she brushes her hair out of her eyes.

Tired said...

Watched The View:

The opening Hot Topics chat:

I think she was a little overwhelmed, and out-knowledged.

She hardly spoke. Once about needing to make a living for her kids. Once about being a nurse and the physical issues of having 19 kids. Once about melting down in the public eye. FOr example, she said, she melted down at home in private over the weekend (huh?).

I thought the regular hosts directed some negatives towards her:

-You don't mind if someone gets attention at a public event as long as they have talent to begin with. (They were talking about Lady GaGa but I wonder....)

-Do you make enough money to have the kids on TV (I think Kate missed the innuendo here. They sort of said that they get that she needs to make the money, but at what price?)

- Why they (the hosts) didn't have a lot of kids, because it wasn't smart for them.

Kate tried the single mom who has to provide everything for her kids route. They agreed on the single mom stuff, but she didn't get much more than that from them.

Interesting. She was low key. No big performance.

But to my dismay, it sounds like she isn't going to be willing to stop the show, which is the only reason I have any interest in this story. Oh well, maybe something bigger will come along for her.

Michelle said...

ok, I am home on my lunch hour...peeked at the show just in time for them to announce that everyone in the audience was getting a bottle of the Beckham's new fragrances.

Kate...you are not in the audience! Your face lit right up when they made that announcement. More freebies! It's priceless...right there for the whole world to see...Kate getting excited about more free goodies...

GoPoshGo! said...

I think the world can relax, safe in the knowledge that Kate Gosseline will NEVER host a talk show.

For those who didn't watch, every time Kate spoke it was about herself -- didn't add one interesting or useful comment to any of the discussions. She was clearly nervous and uncomfortable.

The BEST was Victoria Beckam (sp?). She was gorgeous and gracious and funny -- and went on and on about how happily married she is (for, go figure, TEN years now), and what a great dad and husband David is. She was the antithesis to Kate, and IMHO unwittingly made Kate look like a big, stupid, baffoon.

I now officially love Victoria -- and Joy as well (she was the only one with the balls to ask Kate WHY she's doing the show. Brava, Joy!!!).

first impressions said...

She did! She said it! She's "going to CONTINUE to take the high road" concerning Jon.

Also, she looks akward and self conscious,guaffaws at her own jokes and makes comments at the wrong time that noone else on the panel seems to listen to.

Whoopi seems to be barely tolerating her, even saying that having 8 kids is not so unusual and strongly stating that "positivity" is not a real word.

Kate told Victoria Beckham that "unlike myself, you and David have made it to ten years..."

tallblonde said...

"Parts wear out"....great comment coming from a "healthcare professional", Kate *LOL*

AlegendInHerOwnMind said...

Wow, Kate is definitely being groomed for bigger things. Screw the J&K Plus 8 TV show, she is moving on. No more potties for her! Bill Gedde is really doing Oprah a favor. I noticed BW is absent and the guest is Dr. Oz (Oprah's fave). What next, Rachael Ray and Dr. Phil on tomorrow? Kate is pushing her newest agenda of diet and exercise and, da da ORGANIC!! Oh, her kids don't know what Dorito's are. But they know their parents are all over the gossip mags and being (voluntarily) put on magazine covers? I'll eat a Dorito, thank you very much.Maybe she will be on Dr. Oz' new show. She really thinks her shiit doesn't smell. STFU Kate.

LC said...

People who really take the 'high road' shouldn't have to proclaim or explain to the world that they are taking the high road. Having to say it to everyone is contradictory to the integral meaning of "taking the high road". Kate is obviously just saying it to boost her own self-worth. She is so transparent and so fake. I can't believe a lot of people just don't see through her!

It is also my opinion that she is a bad and boring 'host'! She talks basically about herself. She doesn't know how to listen or how to find the guests interests without relating it to Kate or Kate's story!!

Dunwoody Mom said...

Did not watch. However, just reading over the comments here - do you think the View ladies are just tolerating Kate? Maybe they did not like the fact of Kate co-hosting and are not going out of their way to make her comfortable?

Protect8 said...

Kate is almost single because soon she will no longer be married. She is a mother. She is NOT a "single mother" which implies that she is raising her children on her own. Jon spends a lot of time at the house and is involved in the children's lives. He spent long periods of time alone with the children while Kate was on a picture book tour. I don't recall that he referred to himself as a single father during that period of time.

Kate is using the "single mom" thing to garner sympathy and obviously as her newest hook to get on the talk circuit. It is ridiculous. Her next "book" will undoubtedly be all about surviving as a "single mom." And when she goes on book tour with bodyguards for the book, Jon will be at home with the children.

Ms.Peach said...

Busy in my garden but came in to check on comments. I'm sure her PR people will sit down with her and review the show. Tomorrow may be different. Sounds like the ladies brushed up on Kate, but still didn't go after her. I think ol' Dr. Phil is on tomorrow?
Now that may be an interesting conversation. He's on because I saw some promos about him "taking it to the streets", going around America. Such a pie hole.

debbie said...

I tried to watch a little of The View but got very upset when she started criticizing Michelle Dugger. Her majesty made it seem as if she had a harder time and was way better mother then Michelle. Wont even peek tomorrow--think I have to give the dogs a bath or clean a boys bathroom or some other lovely Mom duty.

lonnie said...

I thought Kates face was going to crack, she was smiling so hard at Victoria Beckham. She was also checking her out! Her eyes were going up and down the whole time. Loved it when they were discussing wearing high heels, Kate threw in something out about the heels in her closet and her kids reactions when they see them and no-one paid any attention to her. Kate is showing that if she's not talking about herself, she doesn't have anything to add to a conversation.

zoey said...

OH the Irony!
first the hot topic is people stealing the spot light from young people (AHEM kate...)
second, people making up words (ahem, Kate)
third, people who constantly bring the attention back to themselves (AHEM, KATE)
fourth, people wearing things on their head that look like straw (COUGH COUGH, KATE
fifth, people who make up words (COUGH, cough, KATE)

ILLinIllinois said...

I really don't understand the comments from everyone about it being so hard to stop watching anything with Kate on it....I stopped watching or looking at everything that she appears on or in. I get my fill here on this board.

It really isn't that difficult....give it a try. You'll feel MUCH better about yourself.

Janine said...

Saw it. Was bored. K8 was boastful and full of herself as usual. She would cackle and turn toward the audience to "feel" their acceptance. I hope at least the audience was allowed to think for themselves She bragged about organic nursing labor delivery forced to work now 4 her kids when she said "CONTRAINDICATION" I screamed in disgust. YUCK

LORI IN OHIO said...

Umm... this was almost painful to watch. Kate was ignored, and had not one valuable thing to add to any of the conversations. Every other time when she has been on TV, the spotlight has been on her. This is new for her, and she clearly is uncomfortable not being the focus. If there was any question before, it is clear to see-- there is NO talent there!

Shannon said...

I could only stomach a few moments of the show, but if this was Kate's audition for her own show, she failed badly. Who expected otherwise.

First of all, Kate needs to learn how to speak about ANYTHING other than herself. If it ain't "me", Kate doesn't know what to say. She beamed as usual when the attention was on her.

She only has two expressions. That fake smile when the attention is on her and she thinks she's cute. Or that sulken I'm bored out of my mind pout the remaining 90% of the time.

I couldn't believe she badmouthed the Duggars like she did. Very obvious she does not like other big families getting attention. Kate, you didn't know when to stop having kids either! I bet TLC loves that she talked so poorly about a fellow show on the network.

ABadViewofKate said...

I have to agree Victoria Beckham was lovely, both in her person and her personality.

I had to laugh when Kate tried to insinuate her problems with the Paparrazi was similar to what [a] Serena Williams or [a] Posh Spice/Beckham family has to endure - hence Kate's meltdowns.

Um, no? They have talent and a reason for being so popular - they don't have to call the three photogs that follow you to make sure they show up - they are hounded for their celebrity.

The difference is Kate BEGS for the publicity.

I further agree - she will never do a talk show [she's awful] and her jiggling of her leg/swiping of her bangs was disconcerting.

Bet she doesn't do it tomorrow tho'.

Scruffy's Mom said...

And, don't forget, she basially laughed that horse laugh at everything she said.

And, she looked at herself on the floor monitors all the time

Vanessa said...

Hmm, I got the feeling that Whoopi and Joy were biting their tongues
with Khate. Sherri was the only one trying to make her feel comfy. I'm sure they've read some of the comments left on their message board. Oh yeah, goes to show they don't do any research on any of their guests/co-hosts...Sherri said she didn't know how Khate does it, she only has one kid and Khate has SIX!! Sherri looked genuinely shocked when they said it was EIGHT! I bet Katie didn't like the flub either, tee hee!!
Another day of her??? Have they ever had a co-host do 2 days in a row before?

I just caught a minute at the end of the show (put my TV on for the news and it was on that channel). Did anyone notice how BIG Kate looks compared to the other ladies? I thought Sherri is a big woman but Kate looked huge next to her. The top she is wearing is way too small - she needs to go up a size! Her arms look untoned and on a front shot her "twins" look huge and out of place. She is really a big woman. Like I said before - like a guy in drag.

15 minutes into the show and one of the first commercials is for Nuva-Ring....

Too funny ! Kate Gosselin is co-hosting and they are advertising for birth control !

SKB516 said...

I really shouldn't read about this woman while trying to eat my lunch. I'm getting sick of the "all for the kids" line. And taking the high road? Really, Kate? Since when is running to People magazine (a mag YOU choose to give an interview to- not a tabloid that comes up with its own stories) and telling them everything "taking the high road" and "doing it all for the kids"? Does she really not understand what a hypocrite she looks like when she boasts about how she's not going to go into private things & then does it anyway?! She just can't help herself. What she should have said was that they'll have to pick up this week's copy of People to get the scoop.

JJ said...

Many negative comments here, not surprising, and while I am not a Kate fan by any means, almost all of the criticism of Kate is just a fact of life with The View.

If you ever watch any guest host, it's very hard to fit in and get a word in edgewise. Being a cohost on The View sounds like a nightmare job to me and I'll give Kate some credit. She handled it as well as anyone and she didn't do what everyone always shames her for, which is talk about herself all the time. She didn't try to steal the show at all like I anticipated she would. She was able to contribute pretty well when she had the chance to speak and didn't do anything that other guest cohosts don't do IMO.

Pretty harmless and unoffensive appearance.

I Caved.... said...

I'll admit, I HAD to watch the trainwreck. I'm surprised because Kate actually did WORSE than I was expecting (and my expectations were pretty low to begin with).

She sat awkwardly still (with bad posture), and had very little to contribute about anything. The majority of her comments contained a reference to herself (of course), regarding meltdowns, lots of kids, how difficult it is to be a celebrity, blah blah blah. She was quite amused with herself, as each time she made one of these self-referential comments, she'd look at the audience and smile or smirk (as if they were all in on the joke with her).

The former "nurse" was surprisingly uninformed about a myriad of health topics, and had nothing to contribute to discussions about the hermaphrodite runner OR to Dr. Oz's interview (except to mention that she only lets the kids eat organically, of course -- once again, it's all about Kate).

None of the panel seemed to want to engage her, and they pretty much ignored her. Props to Whoopie for contradicting Kate by telling her that it's NOT okay to make up words!!!

I was almost hoping I'd be proved wrong, but it actually IS true: the only thing Kate can talk about is Kate.

She may think she's a superstar in her Realest Reality Show on TV, but outside of Wernersville, PA Kate is just plain out of her league.

Willow #1 said...

YES - Khate totally acted jealous of the Duggars. She just could not hide it!! "They only have 11 more children than me" - or something close to that. It sounded to me like she wanted to say "But.. I have EIGHT!!". She was trying to sound important by talking about her nursing experience and about the uteri (?) of women who have a lot of C-sections. Just dull, dull. (YEAH). She really is dense, as was mentioned already here - she did not get some of the innuendos at all. I realize she is new to this format, but with her seasons on her show and all of her speaking engagements, etc., she should have been just a little bit better. Will see what tomorrow brings! Maybe the View ladies were told to go easy, so they had to do back-handed comments in order to get some accountability in.

Bahahaha said...

Kate was as out of place there as a fart in Church. She was so uncomfortable, it was a riot. I thought she was going to cry when Whoopie CORRECTED her! Bahahaha...

As someone said in an earlier post- She was the unpopular kid at the cliques lunch table...

No worries about her ever getting her own show. Milk J&K+8 honey, as hard and fast as you can. They're getting older, and about to suffer the ole 'Cousin Oliver' syndrome and the jig's up.

we said...

Love how Whoopie went into a discussion at the get go and didn't focus on Kate.....

Minka's tail said...

Questions:
1. Does anyone here remember a time when a kid wasn't in a scene because they didn't feel like being filmed? I don't. I remember Mady being pu nished, but never a kid voluntarily being allowed to not participate.

2. Don't the kids eat corn chips with their salsa on their paper plates? She claimed they didn't recognize Doritos, and called them triangular things. Besides the fact that some of them can barely speak regular words (much less big words like "triangular"), I don't believe it. Maybe they had baked or healthy tortilla chips, but I think they've had something similar.

Anyway, she was very uncomfortable, said the same things she's always said, and if I were in charge of TLC, I'd speak to her about dissing her co-workers on television.

marypoppins said...

And my favorite (when asked if she made enough money):
"Does anyone EVER make enough money
__________________________________
I did not watch,
When the family was on Oprah via Skype, speaking about Octomom, Kate said there will never be enough money. The look on Jon's face was priceless.

I dont think she will ever be happy.

Performance not that good said...

I watched a few minutes. Kate looked uncomfortable, confused, and not-in-the-know. She had absolute no sparkle. None whatsoever. That's what will prevent her from getting her own talk show (but I've been wrong about her before). I thought I would throw up when they were talking about high, high heels and she made the comment in support of wearing high heels that "oh well, it's painful to be beautiful." Funny, everyone I know who wears them takes them off the minute they can. It just reminded me of how inane and shallow this show really is. Anyway, she looked totally out of place and they pretty much ignored her when I was watching.

cheryl said...

Thanks for the comments - did not and will not watch. Sounds like
typical k cannot carry a conversation. Hopefully tomorrow
she will be skewed.

amymo said...

Watching Kate was hysterical. in the first 7 minutes she said only 5 words:
"She's awesome"
"Yeah"
"Coniption fit".

I loved it when Whoopie called her on the carpet about the make up words.

Joy called her out on the why she is still doing the show.

I love how she tried to make excuses for people's meltdowns...but Sherri was having none of that.

I found it so funny how she did the blip and had a audience member doing the mini announcement, but dropped the mic after she spoke, and then quickly had to put the mic up to the audience members mouth *LOL*

For most of the time she looked like a deer caught in the headlights.

And from what I counted 'on camera' she flipped that dang beaver tail out of her face 11 times. (no telling how many times she did that when she wasn't on camera)

She tried to identify herself with Vic. Beckham. "I don't smile either"....

Oh...and the Dr. Oz thing: "If you watch our show, you will see that I am totally into organic foods"... etc

She was WAY out of her element there.

marypoppins said...

Didn't watch, but from what Im reading here I'll bet some of these clips show up on The Soup.

SafetyTrain said...

Well, at least she admitted that greed is the reason she's continuing with the show. Its on tape. Forever. NOW can the court appoint these kids a guardian????????

Tess H. said...

After watching the View, I don't believe Kate could ever host a talk show since anything she says has to somehow be about her. I don't think she has any interest in anyone but herself and the fame and fortune she can gain. I don't even think she can be coached or trained to do otherwise.

zoey said...

Can someone please school Kate gosselin in Organics... just beause the sugar in your kids lolipop is Organic... does not mean its HEALTHY. sugar is sugar!!!!
she seems to have healthy and organic confused.
i would rather feed my kid a regular NON organic Apple than an organic lolipop.

She should be jealous-Mr Dugger seems to like and respect Mrs Dugger- he does not despise her.

giveitup said...

I could only tolerate watching about 15 minutes of The View. My observations:

Clearly Kate Gosselin is out of her element if the topic and focus of attention is not 100% on HER.

For someone who IMO, abused fertility medicine to impregnate herself multiple times, resulting high order births, Kate should have NEVER gone there with respect to Michelle Duggar's 19th pregnancy and how damaging it is to the uterus for a woman to give birth 18 times. Her observations, or what she 'heard' as a L & D nurse does make her an authority on the biology of the uterus.

The End.

momof4intx said...

I thought she was more awkward than any other guest host I've seen. She rambled on too much when she did speak, they kept having to cut her off. She just did not fit into this kind of show...I really don't think we have to worry about seeing too much more of her outside of her reality show.

I loved Megan Mccain last week though, I wish they would bring her back for good. She was a good fit.

Texas Two Step said...

Myself I did not watch, but mother is a faithful viewer at called her at 11 for her review. She is saying pretty much the same as you all and put it like this "she was the unpopular girl at the popular girls table and tried to fit in but didn't". And as posted understand Whoopi kind of cut her off.... HA! maybe someone DID read all those post on The View Blog spot. Although did not watch the show, will probably look to see what show up on YouTube. Sounds like from what ya'll are saying that *possibly* little miss kHate may be coming to the end of the line here!

Crap! Now I wish that I wasn't at work and had seen it. It really surprizes me that they actually went after her with the hard questions. If she's showing that she can't hold her own this means (unfortunately) that she will fight tooth and nail for the show to go on.

Meltdowns Anyone ? said...

I loved it when Kate was talking about herself and said, "I had a meltdown over the weekend. In private."

Yawwnnnn......and none of the other ladies of the View asked her for any details.

No one cares.

Can you say DONE??? said...

Keep the recaps coming! I refuse to watch anything Gosselin anymore. I only caught a small part of today's View because I was flicking around waiting for the noon news. But, how cute was Victoria Beckham??? I love her sweet disposition, and hearing how she & David are all into the kids and their lives. She was refreshingly genuine. What a contrast to Kate! Kate looked like a dopey deer in the headlights. I could feel the uncomfortable vibe amongst the group through my tv! And, who dressed Kate?! She looked dumpy & shlumpy in that outfit. Atleast her skunk-do was tamer than I've seen it lately. Good grief!

Tami said...

Serena Williams also has this affecting her chart, and she just got thrown out of a tournament due to a meltdown.

It's hard to say whether the meltdown already occurred when Jon had his tv interview or whether it will happen while she is on The View. Interestingly, Joy Behar is also affected during this time period. Maybe the two will clash? Or maybe someone will verbally attact the two of them over something?
**********
Wow. I wonder if I have it on my chart? I had a meltdown last night. lol.

junebug said...

Kate was like a "fish out of water" on The View. Did anyone notice the look she flashed Whoopi at the end when Whoopi said Kate would be back tomorrow? Kate did not even try to smile. She sucked, she knows she sucked, and now she gets to do it all over again tomorrow. ROL!

ASickViewer said...

Watching The View on a normal daily basis with Elizabeth Hasselbeck I get horrible stomach cramps and pain. Today I watched Kate Gosselin and had a severe case of diarrhea. This is the views contribution to the H1N1 flu- The View Flu.

JDS said...

I did not watch but have been reading the comments. I have this picture in my mind of Kate's PR staff frantically reading the blogs all day today and taking notes. Then they will tell Kate what she did wrong and like some said she will be different tomorrow.

Also, her buddy Dr. Phil will be on to smooth things over for her.

Really, this blog should be paid for all the help we have given them to change Kate's image. The thing is they can try all they want and it may work for a while but the ugliness inside always comes out in one form or another.

Tami said...

5 minutes in to the show and so far the plan seems to be to ignore Kate and not let her get a word in edge wise.

It is awkward ... Kate looks like the unpopular kid at the cool girls lunch table trying hard to fit in and not succeeding.

*********
Exactly! My baby mercifully let me take a nap (with him) because he kept me up last night. So I didn't get up until the show had been on a while. By the time I got around to turning it on Victoria was on and Kate sat there trying to interject comments about perfume with no success. She seemed like such an idiot.

careaboutthekids said...

I think what has me the most upset about Kate's appearance on The View is how many people on this board watched it! She's not going to go away until we go away. Personally, I truly cannot stomach watching her. As I always say "What goes around, comes around". Watch out Kate.

fidosmommy said...

Janine, I'm sorry, I want to read your entire post, but could you please explain what you meant when you wrote your post? I'm having a lot of trouble following your thoughts here. Thanks!

"She bragged about organic nursing labor delivery forced to work now 4her kids when she said "CONTRAINDICATION" I screamed in disgust. YUCK"

shilohpeace said...

I have to admit I am dying to watch a rerun of today's The View. I purposely did not watch it because I did not want to contribute to high ratings because of Kate. I do not think Kate is all that I do not respect her for much of anything. Basically, she has never really been a true mother. She has been a martinet and conducted the household in a military style manner to make sure the house was spotless and the kids had food. Other than that, I have rarely seen moments of real mothering between Kate and her kids.

But reading through the comments today makes me die to see the show. I am going to try not to watch the show tonight as well. But it is hard. I am intrigued to watch the show because I cannot stand Kate. Do you think that Kate's promoter cash in on the fact that she has so many enemies who are fascinated by her and want to tear her down and as such, they count on that to boost her "fanbase" or "fan/haters/base"?

LB said...

I didn’t watch it since I’m at work. I’m glad someone finally told her to stop making up words. It makes her sound less intelligent anyway. Whoopi was right…positivity isn’t a real word and spell check didn’t recognize it! I would have liked to see Kate’s reaction to that, thou.

I wish they had asked her the purpose of her ‘bodyguard’. I’m sure none of the hosts has a full-time bodyguard or one at their beck and heel. They should get into the details about their own security when they have to go to events, give speeches or go to faraway locations (Barbara Walters).

I love Victoria Beckman and she is pretty much a classic lady. She doesn’t suck up to the media. She doesn’t use her children as a vehicle to be the breadwinners or push them into the show business, to quote, unquote Kate, ‘unlike Kate’. I don’t understand why Kate was comparing herself with the topics they were discussing. ‘I had a meltdown…’, ‘ we eat organic too’, remarks about her family only because they’re related to her. I really think she was comparing herself with other people. I also thought it was a little ironic that Kate was interviewing another reality TV star. Mrs. Beckman had a short-run reality show a couple years ago. Does anyone know if Kate asked her about that? What was she interviewed about?

I hope this was just a one-time deal and not to pursue a ‘career’ in TV, although I think that’s part of the reason why she wanted the show to continue because she loves to talk to the cameras about herself! Yucky.

kate, you are the national joke said...

didn't watch the view. sounds like it was painful for those that did watch. apparently kate is finally being shown for the no-talent she is...were the viewer numbers ever published for the dude episode? i hope tonight's ratings are worse. (won't be watching that one either).
well, with the 8 show hopefully running its course soon, and her tv host prospects looking slim-to-none, what is she going to do to maintain HER lifestyle? (she might tell the kids every man for himself-lol!)
maybe that playboy offer might be back on the table....lol..
she is such a joke.i think she is worse than octomom.
i really should be ashamed at myself for enjoying someone else's misfortune.

BoyMom said...

It was slightly painful to watch because after they got the "let's talk about Kate" segment over, she had nothing to contribute. And Whoopi called her out on making up words! That was hilarious-and even more uncomfortable! When she was talking about buying organic, Sherri said, "You sound like a fun mom" in a total deadpan voice. I ran it back three times to see if she was joking and she looked her straight in the eye and didn't smile afterwards, so I concluded she was digging in a little jab there to Kate. Loved it.

I've never seen an interview with Victoria Beckham before but I have to say she was so classy. Truly! I don't know if it was just the stark contrasts, but she was lovely. Kate literally stared at her the entire time as if to memorize her actions so she can emulate them later.

It wasn't as bad as it could have been, but I agree with everyone here, the View ladies were just barely tolerating Kate.

CherylB said...

If someone has it on tape, the very
end of the show with the clapping and the credits rolling, Did Whoppi say "Kate will be back tommorow to talk about her movie?
Please tell me I heard wrong.

rural mom said...

Glad to hear the ladies of the view had the sense to ignore Kate. That is what is needed, ignore her and hope she goes away.

Protect8 said...

Once again Kate gives her pat answer that she HAS to do the show because she, as a single mother, HAS to support her children all by her little own lonesome.

I'm pretty sure Jon's role on their show helps pay the household bills. Or does she think her picture book pays the rent?

As for this episode of the view: boring, boring, boring - started doing something doing a commercial half way through and never went back.

ratherbkayaking said...

Well, I watched - am a View watcher, and have lived with listening to Elizabeth Hasselbitch, so it wasn't a stretch for me to have to endure Kate. I couldn't wait to hear what they had to say about the mess that was Kanye :)

I approached the episode a little more analytically than usual. In order to assess the narcissism that is Kate in the setting of sharing one's point of view, the following are the counts of the use of the words "I", "me" or "my" of the 4 panelists. Kate hardly spoke for the first 8 minutes, but made up for it the rest of hot topics (first 25 minutes):

Whoopi - 13 times
Joy - 6 times
Sherri - 15 times
Kate - 44 times - also many "likes" and several ums.

As predicted by GWOPers, she also said "for the sake of my kids" at least twice; wore her wedding rings; said she was taking the "high road" when asked about 'how she can handle Jon bringing that woman around her kids'.

When directly asked if she could stop doing the show, Kate said she wouldn't because it would not stop the flack with the papparazzi, it would leave her without a paycheck. She indicated that she is now a single parent and is the only one providing for the family.

Irony: Right after the panel discussed how Madonna brought the conversation back to herself while speaking about Michael Jackson at the VMAs, they started to speak about the Duggar's. After the discussion about having 19 kids, Kate spouts 'that's only 11 more than I have'. Pot...meet kettle.

She also brought the conversation back to herself after discussing Ms. Williams having a meltdown at the US open. Kate enters the conversation saying 'she's only human. She had a meltdown. Don't we all have meltdowns? I had a meltdown in the privacy of my own house this weekend.' Kate - here's a message for you. Copernicus called. He said that YOU are NOT the CENTRE of the UNIVERSE!!!

I will also be watching tomorrow because I want to hear what Taylor Swift has to say about the VMAs.

Ms.Peach said...

I bet the BM is so proud of her Kate and will rave about her.

Whoopi is wrong said...

Not a Kate but Whoopi is wrong. According the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, positivity is a word.



Main Entry: pos·i·tiv·i·ty
Pronunciation: \ˌpä-zə-ˈti-və-tē\
Function: noun
Inflected Form(s): plural pos·i·tiv·i·ties
Date: 1659
1 : the quality or state of being positive
2 : something that is positive

fidosmommy said...

Do you suppose that the regular panel of The View got together and decided HOW they were going to present the Hot Topics so they COULD refer to Kate without being the least bit obvious? I didn't see the show today, but your comments here about the opening segment lead me to believe that at least Whoopi decided to have some gentle satiric fun out of it. Sort of like inside jokes that only those who actually knew about Kate and watched her show would catch.

Just a thought. Whoopi's pretty
clever and just might have done it.

muchsmartermom said...

I watched 5 mins--I'll just say--no way can she do tv without editing!!!! Someone needed to tie down her bouncing, nervous foot!!

John and Kate who cares said...

I was on radar looking at the Kayne reaction. There was a rather unfavorable blurb about Khate on the view. Looking uncomfotable, hair flinging, said only 5 words (didn't click on it to read the whole thing). Now it seems that has been replaced with Khate admits meltdown over the weekend on the view. (didn't click on this either) WTF.. and here I thought wow radar FINALLY has something negative to say about it's "favoritest" z-list celebrity!

GoPoshGo said...

I think it was pretty clear that the View ladies don't watch JK+8 --none seemed to know that Kate has 8kids (which shows how much they don't care, given that the "8" is in the title of the show!! lol).

I wish Kate had been pressed to answer "how she does it" -- Sherry seemed amazed that Kate takes care of 8 kids, when Sherry said she was overwhelmed with one. Sherry, it's called not-a-nannies, babysitters, and film crew members who watch your kids.

Two points I wish SOMEONE would make to Kate: (1) You say you can't stop the show because it supports your kids. Well, what was the plan to support them BEFORE the show? If I have my timeline straight, the kids came BEFORE the show. The truth: you carelessly had 6 more kids, when you could barely afford the two you already had. (2) "Organic" is not by definition "healthy." Organic refers to the way food was grown/produced (i.e., pesticide-free). It has nothing to do with calories/fat/sodium, etc etc. "Organic" chips still have fat and sodium. But, again, this sorry excuse for a "health professional" doesn't understand the difference, and uses the two words as synonyms.

And JJ, I respectfully disagree. Kate's comments were almost always in reference to herself. She could not add to the conversation without giving an example from her own life. What a surprise.

Jake said...

Do you think that Kate's promoter cash in on the fact that she has so many enemies who are fascinated by her and want to tear her down and as such, they count on that to boost her "fanbase" or "fan/haters/base"?

Of course. The "buzz" about the Gosselins (bad and good)is what is keeping this all going. It won't end until no one has anything more to say about Kate or Jon.

And realistically, they know for every 10 people who claim they will not watch; 3-4 probably never watched the show in the first and another 3-4 will watch so they can comment on how bad Kate was.

Ms.Peach said...

Yeah, I can say I eat organic if I have a couple of organic products in my pantry. She's a sham. Glad I didn't watch.

I wonder where she and the Silver Fox are checked in? Any pap sitings?

fidosmommy said...

Oh, BTW, comments about Kate's posture might be something we want to hold back on, please. She looks like she has a geniune spinal deformity going on there - something she cannot help and "standing up straight" doesn't work.

I know something about this, since I have some major spinal deformities myself. I spent my whole childhood being told to stand/sit up straight, and it hurt to do so. The criticisms hurt more. I couldn't help how my spine grew.

Ms.Peach said...

Well, wonders never ease.
Radar even said Kate couldn't get a word in edgewise.

She did manage to say:
"The show has really changed. People say just stop and pull out. But I can't. This is a job. I'm a single mom and I need to be out there working on my job. We didn't go into this wanting to be huge celebrities. But it happened. But essentially I'm doing this by myself. I'm responsible now."

Again with the Jon bashing. Oh, but she's taking the high road!

Beach Lover said...

Didn't watch, but from reading all the comments The View went pretty much as I figured it would. Khate only has one interest and that is herself. Well, that and money, money for herself.

Can you imagine that she has opinions or even knows much about what's going on in the rest of the world? I wouldn't think so for a minute. Does she think The View ladies care if she had a meltdown or if she thinks high heels make her look beautiful? Delusional.

Kate Who? said...

Kate could only reply when she thought she could turn the topic to be about her. She decided to let Dr Oz know she ONLY had 100% organic food around for her kids. She looked and acted stupid. I can't stand her.

I don't think the hosts fawned all over her and that is a very good thing!

texas two step said...

Alright ya'll curiosity has killed the cat here and I went and watched the 3 minute clip over on the view website. Two bones to pick here... first off, woman go and buy a top that fits for gods sake. You get the dang clothes for free, least you can do is get some that fit you properly.
Second off, if i have to hear one more blessed time about how your a single mom and need to support your kids I am going to have to just jump off the empire state building for the insanity of that comment. First off, you have been doing that damn show for 5 years now. Let's just for the sake of averages say that for 4 years between you and jon you got a total of 15K and episode and have 15 eps per year (*averaging here folks), that's about 1/2 a mill a year. times by 4, that's 2 million. Now factor in all those money that was scammed out of, ohhhh sorry sorry the LOVE OFFERINGS from the good church folks (we'll say for sake of measure low balling aout 750,0000), factor in the money you made off the books (we'll say about 1.5 million there)- take away all the taxes and overhead, you should still be sitting on about 1.5 to 2 million in the bank. AT LEAST. ummmm Since your such a coupon queen and frugal and receiving freebies left right and inbetween, I would think that you should with proper investing be able to take care of your kids for quite some time. Now, I'm lowballing here folks, i'm sure the figure that had been amassed is quite a bit greater and not taking into consideration what is being made during this current filming season. So stop the cock and bull about needing to make money for the sake of your kids. And before you go and trash the Duggar family you best look at your own self. Those folks are extreme per say in their belief but boy do they have a true belief and following in their christian lives. Just woman up and stop using those damn kids as #1 money makers #2 excuses to pimp them out STOP STOP STOP STOP STOP

Not a fan of either said...

I'm curious. Are any of you going to The View site to post about how bad her performance was today? Do you think it's worth our time?

**********

I think Whoopi made an intersting point when they were discussing 'melt downs', she said that while EVERY ONE has their moments of melting down, there are CONSEQUENSES that will occur as a result. For Kate Gosselin, airing HER life and those moments of 'melt down' for entertainment purposes is the CONSEQUENCE. So dont cry foul play when the 'melt down' becomes the topic of an internet blog site or the headline of every tabloid rag!!!

k said...

Longtime lurker here...as much as I "despise" Khate, I have rewound that bit about positivity...It looks like it was Sherri who said it. So, a moot point. Esp since positivity IS a word.

But Khate did look quite pathetic. I didn't get the idea that anyone was fawning over her.

And the movie referred to: Precious, w/ SHERRI. I think Whoopi was just running out of time at the end of airing.

aldergator said...

I don't normally watch the View, but I recorded it and watched it when I got home from the dentist. The only thing I have to say is that based on K8's performance today, if she gets a talk show I will walk down main street naked. Will continue to boycot J & K + 8.

KidsrGreat said...

When Kate launched into her spiel about why she takes the high road,ahem... she said, "It's not a coined phrase, It's not a little quote I throw out there...I know I've been mocked." You guessed it, the phrase..."For the sake of my children." Arrrg! Sorry, don't know what was said or happened next as I had to run from the room screaming.

Vanessa said...

I wonder what she "melted down" about in the privacy of her own home this weekend? Did one of the kids use a whistle? Did one of the dogs disturb a picnic lunch in the front yard? Did one of the kids come down with the flu and messed up a rug? Did she find mold in her new fridge? Hmmm, to be a fly on the wall.

zoey said...

when whoopi references the Movie at the end, its not kates movie.. its Sherri's.
FYI!

LB said...

By the way, Kate was performing so poorly because the View is not scripted. Therefore, she did not have a scripted ‘speech’ and rehearsed questions/answers to stick with. The ‘high road’ answer has been used before so nothing new about that. That tells a lot about how well she can handle with spontaneous conversations and having intelligent discussions about real-life events outside of reality TV world! I wonder how she was even able to carry on a conversion with Jon at the beginning of their relationship pre-TV life or her family. What did they really talk about?

Here's TV Guide's take of Kate on The View.

http://www.tvguide.com/News/Kate-Gosselin-Wont-1009697.aspx

fidosmommy said...

Wonder what Kate would consider the "low road" to be.

toosad4words said...

Did anyone catch on Ellen today Sharon Osburne was playing a game with Ellen where she said the first thing she thought as different celebrities pics were shown to her? When Ellen held up a picture of Jon & Kate she grabbed it from Ellen and threw it on the floor behind her and said, "Wrong, that's just sooo wrong".

PatK said...

I think we can expect Kate to be hitting that treadmill more than one-half hour a day now. The way she was eyeing Victoria Beckham's much thinner body was very telling.

Anne said...

I was on radar looking at the Kayne reaction. There was a rather unfavorable blurb about Khate on the view. Looking uncomfotable, hair flinging, said only 5 words (didn't click on it to read the whole thing). Now it seems that has been replaced with Khate admits meltdown over the weekend on the view. (didn't click on this either) WTF.. and here I thought wow radar FINALLY has something negative to say about it's "favoritest" z-list celebrity!
------------------------

I saw that too. It was very unfavorable and I was shocked RadarOnline would say such negative things. Even called her skin "orange" and over spray tanned.

Good Grief said...

ABadViewofKate said...

"Positivity is not a word." Thank you Whoopi.

And who the heck is Kate Gosselin to give an opinion on whether or not Michelle Duggar should have another child? Last time I checked the nurse [how long did Kate actual work as an L&D nurse, a year?] is NOT Mrs. Duggars' doctor.

I can't believe Kate is so jealous of the Duggars that she would have to say "Parts wear out." Puhleese.

---

Actually, positivity is a word.

As for Kate having an opinion on the Duggars...People here sure have no problem spouting many opinions on Kate, Jon and the children without the professional credentials to back up those opinions.

this is ridiculous. so many perfect moments to stick one to kate ("michael jackson never had a childhood")

She's not guest-hosting on GWOP. They are not there to "stick one to Kate."

After watching the View, I don't believe Kate could ever host a talk show since anything she says has to somehow be about her
***************
Have you ever heard of "Rachel Ray??!" lol

Lucy said...

I'm not a big fan of the view or j&K, but I did watch, today, and I'd have to say Kate certainly is far better looking than any of the other ladies. I can understand not liking Kate, but I never could understand women calling her homely.

I'd think it would be natural to be a little nervous first time on the show. I missed the first 16 minutes so I don't know what was said during that time which is when, I think, the ladies discuss things between themselves.

It's a Word said...

LB said...

I didn’t watch it since I’m at work. I’m glad someone finally told her to stop making up words. It makes her sound less intelligent anyway. Whoopi was right…positivity isn’t a real word and spell check didn’t recognize it! I would have liked to see Kate’s reaction to that, thou.

---

No, Whoopi was wrong. Positivity is a word. Just because spell check doesn't recognize a word doesn't mean the word doesn't exist.

I am glad I did not watch.
Seems that Kate was a big YAWN!

WallyWinnie said...

Kates legs looked the same size as Sherris did, as compared with Victorias knock out, model thin ones!

Boy she sure must be jealous of Victorias entire package of a life. I couldn't tell if Kate was staring VB up and down because I WAS STARING myself at Victorias body! I am not a lesbian either.

I found it ironic that Victoria was the guest today on the View, since we all have speculated that this was the famous person Kate was trying to emulate. She is worthy of being Kates idol.

Do you think we will start to hear Kate speaking in an english accent in the future? HEHE

Amy said...

Oh, BTW, comments about Kate's posture might be something we want to hold back on, please. She looks like she has a geniune spinal deformity going on there - something she cannot help and "standing up straight" doesn't work.

I know something about this, since I have some major spinal deformities myself. I spent my whole childhood being told to stand/sit up straight, and it hurt to do so. The criticisms hurt more. I couldn't help how my spine grew.

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



Nah. She's just slouchin'....clearly.

nohate4kate said...

My first time watching the view - yuck! Why don't they just stop the show?

"No! I could stop and I'd still have all the flack and the lack of paycheck. Let's face it, I have to support my children. I'm a single mom and now more than ever I need to be out there working hard. It comes with a price" She also said something about it not having a price for the kids because if they don't want to film they have to. I love how 5 year olds can make that decision, one that will affect them for the rest of their lives and understand the consequences of their early fame. Had to youtube it for ya

"Huge celebrities"
Boy, is she full of herself.

And "essentially I'm doing this by myself"
Did Jon die or something?

(in random order):

Posh Spice: talks about fashion
Kate: I wear high heels!

Whoopi: talks about Serena's fit
Kate: I have meltdowns!

Dr. Oz: talks about eating healthy
Kate: I only eat organic!


Whoopi: talks about Duggars kids
Kate: I have 8 kids!

Kate can only talk about ME ME ME

JenTru said...

I might marry Whoopi Goldberg. Even though positivity is a word, Kate still thinks she made it up, so Whoopi was qualified. Kate looked and acted like an idiot, so what else is new? At least we know she won't get her own talk show. I didn't even know this was on today but fell asleep during Regis and woke up to the bee-atch. She needs to step down off her 6 inch hooker heel organic high horse and use all that ill-gotten cash to buy herself a clue.

DK RN said...

I have been an RN for over 20 years and I was shocked when Kate said "Parts wear out" and when she talked about the uterine window. I wonder if she realizes how much more dangerous to both the mother and the fetuses to carry as many children as she did? It if so much more dangerous than carrying singles or even twins/triplets. Which is why doctors want to selectively terminate when there are more. Not saying she should have but she needs to realize that she placed her life and the life of her children at severe risk when she chose to get pregnant with six children. She should NOT be commenting on Michelle Duggar when basically she was took much more risk. I am tired of her pretending to be so much better than other moms.

lindahoyt said...

I have a family too. I guess I better get a tv show....pass the fertility drugs-- I need to have a litter of kids in my old age. I already have 4 grown kids. Now all I need to do, just like Kate, is get some "not" nannies; say my family does "not" know how to help; start yelling at my husband saying he does "not" know how to act and is "not" smart; get a "not" a boyfriend; and then I can make "not" enough money---"all for my kids"!

Vanessa said...

She said that some patients have been told by their doctors not to have anymore children, that their uterus has thin spots and could possibly rupture? I think this applies mostly to women who have had c-sections and I think the Duggar mom only had one, the rest were normal births. Khate on the other hand had her uterus stretched beyond anything that what would occur "naturally" I hope SHE was told NOT to have anymore. I know after my 3rd c-section, when the docs had me cut open, I had my tubes tied right then and there! I wonder if she did the same?? Besides, there are some women who are just born to be mothers, she obviously LOVES it, she doesn't regret anything, she doesn't act like her kids are a burden, she's always speaks kindly to them. Soooo different from Khate. Although the Duggars lifestyle is certainly not the norm (a bit too
strange for me) that family works TOGETHER, they actually PARENT those kids. And certainly if they accepted any help from anyone, they would have reciprocated immediately.

Im_in_PR said...

Actually, I'd bet that Michelle Duggar's uterus is far healthier than Kate's.

She has never bombarded her with synthetic hormones.

And like it or not, Michelle Duggar has had FAR FEWER periods and episodes of PMS than most women!

That's gotta be a plus.

BTW, didn't watch The View. I used to love Whoopi and Joy, even though I am not on the same page politically as they are.

But now I don't respect them. I mean, isn't anyone ever going to call Kate out on exploiting her children?

She uses them, makes THEM WORK and claims that she is the one working to support them.

Not so Kate, and America knows it.

You have enough money now that you could invest it and live comfortably and never have to force your children to work to support your Hollywood lifestyle.

But you won't do that. You care more about the money than you do protecting your kids.

You can't keep them silent forever. They'll talk, and when they do, you will finally be forced to listen.

Like the old preacher used to say "Payday someday."

katie said...

Kate bombed. The audition is over and she failed. It's pretty obvious she DOESN'T HAVE THE TALENT to be a talk show host because she can't listen to and interact with people. If you don't cater to Kate and pay attention to her, she doesn't know how to behave on the stage.

She barely said anything. She was looking at the cards a lot, doing fake smiles. She looked like a fool sitting here.

Kate looked like a hippo next to Victoria Beckham. She looked bigger than The View ladies. My God!

Im_in_PR said...

Kate said "The show has really changed. People say just stop and pull out. But I can't. This is a job."

She admits it's a job when it relates to HER being on camera, but her sweet, innocent little children are not working? As Whitney would say "H*ll to the naw woman!"

Ms.Peach said...

I can guarantee you Kate had no idea positivity is a word. She makes up words because she thinks it's cute.

As far as the meltdown in the privacy of her home, now that is an oxymoron! But to be serious, this woman has some temper issues and I fear for those kids.

And I have to say that Kate is a celebrity, not because of talent, but because of circumstance. Without those kids to hide behind, she is nothing and that's why she wants the show to continue. I keep hoping for a whistle blower.

Vicky said...

If you are really a single mother trying to support your children, then you should be conservative about money.

Instead of buying a huge mansion, maybe you buy a smaller home with more bedrooms for your kids. Instead of wasting money on her new clothes (wardrobe change 5 times a day for paps), shoes, cars, spa, nails, and so on, maybe she should stop indulge herself and teach her kids how to save.

Kate is not supporting her children, she is using her children to support the lifestyle she desires.

I like that. Important to remember.

How can The View explain having an abuser as a guest host? I doubt that any man who is an abuser would be invited. Why was she?

Amazing.

SafetyTrain said...

Kate's excuse that they need to continue with the show because that's the only way they can support their kids just pisses the hell out of me. Should the people who support their families selling drugs, doing insider trading, or prostituting themselves be given a pass because they're doing it for the sake of their families? Of course not. So how is selling videos of your kids to millions of strangers (and pedophiles) for millions of dollars any better?? Its actually worse. How they can even live with the thought that sickos across the world own footage of their kids is beyond me. Does she think about that every time she goes to the spa? Does he think about that every time he drives his sports cars? Oh wait, no that would take mean they'd have to stop focusing on themselves for more than a minute.

Sometimes the end doesn't EVER justify the means.

Its NOT impossible for two healthy and young adults to raise a family of eight with "normal" jobs. I wish to hell both of them would stop insisting they can't make money any other way. They're just too lazy and greedy to EVEN TRY.

vapidviewwomen said...

I just feel like all those women on the view are truly brain dead. I don't feel like the View has EVER been good. It's just these uninformed women giving half-baked opinions on topics they don't fully comprehend and as a result, much of what they say is totally inaccurate blather. It's pretty infuriating to sit through.
Even in this arena, Kate stood out as particularly vapid.

I felt like Joy was pretty rude to Victoria, and she gave Kate a pass! That whole "the higher the heel, the lower the consciousness" comment was so out of line! Child exploitation is so much more serious a topic than someone's personal choice of footwear. Victoria dresses up but she is hands on with her kids and doesn't use them for money like Kate does. But these women are so shallow they can't see through appearances.

Jon needs to bring out Kate's contract she drew up in October allowing him to have girlfriends and show it to these women on the View when he's a guest. That will prove that Kate ended the marriage definitively last october. I am so sick of the constant implications that he left the marriage first when it simply isn't true!

GoPoshGo said...

I think the satisfaction we got from Whoopie's jumping all over the "positivity" comment (not sure if Kate or Sherry said it) was that Whoopie said, "It's not okay to make up words." To which Kate countered, "Oh yes it is!" But Whoopie beat her down with another "No it's not" and then something to the effect of "Go ask an English teacher." Regardless of the fact that Whoopie was wrong about "positivity" being a word, it was oh-so-satisfying to see her put the aren't-I-so-cute-when-I-make-up-words cow in her place.

That's right, Kate, you're not cute. You're dumb.

publicity stunt said...

There is no way any network exec will want to shape her into a talk show host after The View, it's too much work and it's like training a cow to sing. Forget it.

It's very hard to have a long lasting talk show and have the audience come back every weekday. The success of a talk show heavily depends on how witty and capable the host is not the guests. It's the same celebrities circling around different talk shows as guests during the same time, and sometimes they avoid talk shows with low viewership.

Kate's publicity stunts, scandals, and argument with Jon can't possibly keep audience interested to come back to a talk show each day. She can barely make the audience come back to that TLC show each week. Publicity stunts might make people come back to check out tabloids sites or magazines but not a talk show.

Hair said...

So do you think that we'll see Khate sporting a new haircut to match Victoria's? After all, I do think that Victoria once wore something similar to what Khate now sports.....

rural mom said...

Radar Online had a poor review of Kate's performance on the View and not it has mysteriously disappeared. Guess her PR people got them to take it down.

Bev said...

Every comment on the View message board is another DING in the "why we should have Kate on the show" vote. It does NOT matter if it's for negative or positive...it's interest and interest alone. Tabloids don't sell magazines because people love the people they are trashing. Tabloids sell magazines because people love to hate people. As long as there is an audience out there paying attention, for good or bad, they will provide you with what you want (or don't want). Period.

Carla Rae said...

I didn't watch The View because I am at work and I can't watch it on ABC because I'm in Canada. As much as I don't want to contribute to her getting attention, but I kinda want to see her bomb on the show.

k said...

Would someone else please confirm that it was Sherri, not Khate, that said "positivity"? Easy to assume it IS her, since she revels in butchering the English language, but folks, it wasn't Khate! In fact, after Whoopi "corrects" Sherri, Sherri explains what she meant by the word.

Tami said...

Why doesn't someone tell her there are OTHER jobs in the world. She does not HAVE to put her kids on tv. This is the only job that will support her lazy, greedy lifestyle. The View ladies should point that out.

Tami said...

I have been an RN for over 20 years and I was shocked when Kate said "Parts wear out" and when she talked about the uterine window.

*******
Also, Michelle is able to have her kids the old fashioned way even though she did have two prior c-sections. She does not seem worn out to me. Plus, she is only 40. Is Hate implying that is old? I am 42 and just had a baby 8 months ago.

Maggie said...

As much as I hate to be on Kate's side, I have to say that positivity is, indeed, a word. Although, I didn't see the show so have no idea in what context she used it. It's very possible she didn't use it correctly.

Kharma4Khate said...
5 minutes in to the show and so far the plan seems to be to ignore Kate and not let her get a word in edge wise.

It is awkward ... Kate looks like the unpopular kid at the cool girls lunch table trying hard to fit in and not succeeding.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I am ok with this! LOL!

Yolanda said...

I'm sure Kate thought it was going to be like all her other TV appearances - everyone asking her questions and she being the center of attention.

She was probably shocked to realize being a host (or co-host) means focusing on others - not herself. And that's her downfall. Kate can't focus on others, because in her mind it *is* all about herself.

Talk about being a legend in her own mind!

Tami said...

And "essentially I'm doing this by myself"
Did Jon die or something?
*****
Good question! Why didn't they ask why she did it the last 5 years then. When he "worked full time as an IT analyst" and she "Quit her job to stay home with the kids", why couldn't they leave well enough alone?! Now she claims single mom status. She chose to be a single mom and Jon is still in the picture! IMO she dumped him so she would have something to say when asked why they keep the show going. I really WAS a single mom in the military for 10 years with no help at all, and I just can't manage to feel sorry for her.

missy said...

Kate thinks she deserves a TV show because she has 8 kids.

If you deserve a TV show because you have a lot of kids not because you have any talent, then we should give people who have loads of kids TV shows. How about the parents with very sick children, they deserve to have their own TV shows even more than Kate, it costs more to heal a very sick child than raising 8 healthy kids.

How about people with many children and very sick elder parents? They need to have their own shows and product lines more than Kate. Can you imagine their stress? I doubt they yell and demean people like Kate to release stress. Only Kate thinks she is entitled to treat people badly because she has stress.

PK said...

Why is it a job for her but not a job for her kids?

fidosmommy said...

Kate looked like a hippo next to Victoria Beckham. She looked bigger than The View ladies. My God!

Next to Victoria Beckham I look like an ocean liner. Victoria is tiny boned. Kate is not. Kate can't help that she has a large frame.

What she can help is that she had no business thinking she had anything to offer The View this morning. I just know I will sleep better tonight for having missed it.

FormerFanofJonandKate said...

Kate looked like a hippo next to Victoria Beckham. She looked bigger than The View ladies. My God!

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

Kate did a terrible job on The View this morning. I completely agree with others when they say it was all about "me me me". The comment about "do any of us make enough money" floored me....how greedy and money hungry can one person be?

I think anyone could look as good as Kate if they had the plastic surgery, time to work out, money to buy organic, money to get nails and hair done daily, etc. and I think it is all vain BUT comments like "she looked like a hippo" are inappropriate in my opinion. Comments like this are why so many people struggle with low self-image and self-esteem (and have eating disorders).

lindahoyt said...

"positivity - a quality or state characterized by certainty or acceptance or affirmation and dogmatic assertiveness"

Is that the way Kate used the word?

It's my choice said...

ILLinIllinois said...

I really don't understand the comments from everyone about it being so hard to stop watching anything with Kate on it....I stopped watching or looking at everything that she appears on or in. I get my fill here on this board.

It really isn't that difficult....give it a try. You'll feel MUCH better about yourself.

I so totally agree. I just don't understand the bitching and complaining about how boring she is but yet you still tune in. I don't watch therefore she doesn't have a chance to get under my skin.

Liar, liar, pants on fire. Will The View figure it out? Doubtful.

keeblerc said...

Khate does not possess the intelligence, humor or curiousity necessary to be a television host/interviewer nor do I see her as being "coachable." I imagine the TLC PR staff has to treat her with kid gloves whenever they attempt to help her because she IS prone to "meltdowns," by her own admission. The whole thing sounded painful and noxious...

What has me almost apoplectic is Khate stating:

"People say just stop and pull out. But I can't. This is a job. I'm a single mom and I need to be out there working on my job. We didn't go into this wanting to be huge celebrities. But it happened. But essentially I'm doing this by myself. I'm responsible now."

Proof positive this woman is DELUSIONAL and that Jon needs to step forward and demonstrate--with quotes like this--that Khate does not have the kid's best interests at heart. He says he wants out of the show, well, the one good thing that could happen for the children from the divorce is, in fact, the end of the show! And if he doesn't try, then these kids need a guardian appointed immediately! A Court can't prevent parents from pursuing their own personal TV aspirations--but it CAN pull the kids out of the equation!

"Major celebrity???!!!" Well, if that's what you are Khate, you should have no problems getting a job. One that doesn't require the full-time presence of your young children.

Nana said...

You know, several of you mentioned how big Kate looked next to Victoria. I noticed that too! I don't get it though. Surely Kate is smaller than Sharri or Joy or Whoopie for that matter. I just don't get why she looked so big. Victoria must be the tinest little thing........ Kate just looked so out of place. No shine at all.

karmasback said...

Whoopi and her producers are genius's (sp). They lured the rat into the trap, then pounced on it. Okay, maybe not pounced, but urged the rat into a corner of the cage and dared her to move. While a less subtle attack on the rat would have been more enjoyable, it would only solidify the rat as a victim, an identity the rat is desperately clinging to. No, what Whoopi and her girls did was subtle, deceptive and toxic. In the course of the 60 minutes, they allowed her to speak only enough to let everyone know she is nothing more than an unemployed, desperate, former nurse. They managed to outwit her by speaking in third person about some of the rats more annoying traits; creating words, exploiting kids, not having talent, failing to keep a marriage and lying about it, etc. They caught on to the rat's Beckham fascination and scary alliance and what did they do?, they had Mrs. Beckham on and sat her 2 seats from the rat so everyone could see the real deal, svelt, classy and tailess. The only remark they let the rat make without interuption was the rat's silly, 5 year self-proclamation of being America's organic spokesrat. Like most Americans, I threw up in my mouth and blushed.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Interesting. I have a nephew who sold drugs years ago. He paid cash for a house for his family. He is no longer dealing drugs, but his family still lives in the house that drug deals paid for. I have no respect for him at all. His parents think it is all A-OK because at least he is no longer selling drugs.

Regarding POSITIVITY-
Just reveiwed clip again at ABC and Whoopi's retort WAS in response to Sherri using that word ( and directed to her). Also there are additional vid's on there, one where she tells you what she is wearing and a second vid about her behind the scene preparation with a producer (?) and she comes right out and says she hopes to be doing this (hosting) in the future. Wonder if this is done for all guest hosts and posted on the view??? Also agree with comment's regarding calling her a cow- hate to say it but she is not fat. BUT if she would have worn proper fitting clothing, it would have helped her appearance today.
