just saw on e news online that khate will def. be part of a new view style talk show along with paula dean... i wonder if this means the show is over?

I hate saggy Kate said...

I believe Kate and Jon both love to be in the headline because they want to continue to make money. They have no shame. These skunks are not embarrassed by anything. They think as long as they make good money they are better than everybody else and the money can prove they are not losers.

It feels that they actually want to stir things up for attention. That's something they have in common. They love the attention and they believe the attention will lead to money. What do you say to these messed up people, really?


10 years from now there will be a "where are they now" episode on Jon and Kate. And it won't be pretty.

It's a pilot. It has to be picked up and approved by the network. That's why Kate's camp is gearing up for all the PR stunts and whatever publicity they can get to hype her. Pathetic!

Jon and Kate Plus 8: Paula Deen, not Kate Gosselin, star of new show

An inside source at Telepictures Productions is stressing that Paula Deen, not Kate Gosselin, is the main star of an upcoming talk show.

The new untitled show is filming a pilot with Paula Deen and Kate Gosselin this Sunday, with Jon and Kate Plus 8 fans speculating it was going to be the "Kate and Paula Show". Well, sorry, it's not. Looks like Kate will just be a player amongst a bevy of other "working moms" like Lee Woodruff, Rene Syler, and Judy Gold.

See... everything you read in the tabloids isn't always true.

greedy Kate needs to go said...

Doubtful. She will still use the kids for marketing and promotion though. The kids will always be on cover of the tabloids if Kate is still on TV. And she doesn't mind. She is not trying to protect from tabloids. She and Jon sell them to tabloids so they can be famous forever.

Zayna said under 'the View' section:
"The most fruitful action I can take is none at all."

Zayna, a couple of weeks ago I would have disagreed with you, but a few days ago I had an epiphany...that ANY time Kate's name is typed anywhere...online, in a mag, or mentioned in a blog or on tv...it's publicity for that media wh%re. And to someone like her, any publicity is good publicity.

I've given up writing letters...and man, I wrote alot. I wrote to the View, to TLC, to all of the morning shows she appeared on. I was getting writers' cramp from all of the bitching and complaining I did about Khate!

But she STILL appeared...and she appeared because my letter and the thousands like mine expressed INTEREST. Even though I told them they lost my viewership (and they did), they knew that a large percentage of those who said they wouldn't watch, would not be able to help themselves and would have to watch her on their show.

Even though I expressed my strong disdain for Ms. G., they probably filed it under 'fan mail' 'cause it showed an interest in Kate.

NO LONGER WILL I WRITE. No longer will her name come from my lips. This woman is NOT WORTH MY TIME and the less said about her, the sooner she'll disappear.

I hope.

rachel said...

Does she deserve her own show? No. But I do think she should pursue a job that does not involve the children being exploited.

cossysmom said...

I'm so disappointed in Paula Dean. I can't see how the concept for this show ever came together. I won't be watching it if it makes it to air and doubt many others will either. It will never last.

Kate can not carry any type of talk show--she has no personality and is too self centered. Paula may be able to carry it off but Kate will be like an anchor around her neck. Poor Paula.

Kate's appearance on The View was very awkward. She isn't comfortable around other people unless she can overpower them. In order to be a successful interviewer you must be able to show a genuine interest in your guest. Kate just doesn't have it in her. Even if she doesn't do any interviewing and just does craft and cooking spots (like she did on Rachael Ray) she will flop. She has no talent--she's shown us on her "reality show" that she isn't good with crafts or cooking. If this is a show for mothers, as she's claimed, it would make sense to have someone who loves and can relate to children. Have him or her do cooking spots and doing crafts WITH children. Again, not something Kate is capable of.

sad for the kids said...

I hope Kate fails miserably. They need to sell the $1.3 million mansion that was bought by selling their children's privacy and move back to the house on Andrews Ave and work for a living like the rest of us.
If they downsize from that huge house, it will be possible to support themselves on a "normal" income.
But no...J&K worship the almighty dollar. For all their Christian preaching, they seem to have lost their way and have been dazzled by the false gods of fame & fortune.

I cringe at the thought of when the kids are old enough to type "Gosselin" into "Google"...J & K need to step up to the plate, step out of the limelight, and nurture and protect their kids.

The whole situation makes me sick.

Sadey said...

I for one will Never give this woman or anything she is associated with my time....No I wont be watching even out of curiousity. I don't care if this woman fails or succeeds. Tlc will never have my viewership again it totally lost all credit with me.. So now Kate moves on to another network and all is well....There are other better people out there I rather see...She has the freaken personality of a piece of wood...Paula Dean is associating her name with a child exploiter who got her break after pimping her children. That's just another person whom I won't ever watch again........

So DONE with the KON said...

Since there is so much confusion about Kate and this talk show, here is what I think: As we all know, Kate's PR team is working like crazy to keep her name out there, and they know that her name evokes strong reactions out of people. Say she is going to do something, and folks are writing, emailing, twittering, etc. to voice their opposition.

I think it is likely that Kate is being considered as one of the hosts for the new talk show, but the PR folks leaked the story so that we would start a 'no Kate' campaign, thus maybe giving the producers the idea that she might be a very good candidate since she is obviously popular (even if not in a good way, remember that it's all about the ratings, folks!). They are using us to show what a draw Kate could potentially be.

I agree with those posters who are saying that we need to ignore all things Kate G.: don't watch the show, don't click on any stories or pictures about Kate, don't vote in any polls, etc. I refuse to do anything to prolong Kate's already too long 15 minutes of fame, and will certainly not add any $$ to her already fat pockets. Folks, the only way to make her go away is to stop feeding the beast. Lets help her get back to the only job she really needs: Mom to the 8 kids that she doesn't seem to realize and appreciate that she has been blessed with.

Ms.Peach said...

FYI, in the Atlanta paper today there was an article regarding the pilot. It was entirely about Paula Deen, absolutely no mention of Kate as a co-host. Apparently, Paula Deen's PR people are sending out press releases solely about her. Kate's PR people are pushing her as the face of the pilot. The war begins.

KatesBigFlintstoneToe said...

I'm sorry people, as much as we pray for Katezilla to be GONE, as much as we email different companies & TV shows in protest, as much as we DON'T click on links having to do with Kate, I'm sorry to say, she is not going to go away anytime soon...very sad :o(

Ms.Peach said...

Yolanda said...

I just read on eonline that Kate is one of 20 women who auditioned with Paula Deen. Kate is NOT the star of the show.

http://snipurl.com/rz51s
[www_eonline_com]

According to the article: "It is Paula's program," the insider said. "She has final authority."
-----------------------------

This confirms my impression of what was in the Atlanta paper today. Kate's PR people twist things. Jon, take note!

pinkdiamond611 said...

Khate is shooting a PILOT for a talk show with PD. Doesn't mean that it will be picked up by any network.

Also, if Jonboy DID actually have sex with the nanny,as reported in some of the tabloids, then how can he profess his love for Hailey on national T.V. stating he loves her more than he ever loved Khate, the mother of his eight kids?

Finally, if the two disgusting parents AGREE to split the children up, that is pure evil and selfish. Even children in the Fostercare system are placed together if at all possible. I pray that there is a judge who assigns a court-ordered advocate for the Gosselin 8.

vallonio said...

when is the last time mama bird saw her lil ones, might I ask? It's all for the kids, right?

Melanie P. said...

Tmz is reporting that while Jon is not charging for his autograph (can you imagine?), he does now have a Jon Gosselin Children's Foundation.

WTF Jon...seriously? You can't even control your OWN life, why are you putting together a charity? With you and your wife's grifter tendencies, anyone who give your 'foundation' money has to be nuts. I can't believe this.

How about you get your head out of your butt and work on making things better for YOUR KIDS instead of trying to get more attention through a phony, probably very questionable (crooked) charity. Priorities you dolt!

LP said...

IF she gets a slot on the show she WILL NOT be the main star but rather one of many "moms" to appear in their alloted segment. She WILL NOT be able to get her way as she does on J&K+8 becasue the crew's sole purpose in life will not be to kiss her royal a$$. Finally, although she will be paid well, she WILL NOT get paid a star's salary so I'm afraid she will keep the show going to keep the money coming in.

she's evil said...

I think JK8 will continue if it's still financially advantageous for Kate to do so. If she can make more money elsewhere she'd throw the show under the bus in a second ( and diss it afterwards). I also think the kids will see less and less of her either way. If we are correct on this blog, all she cates about is herself and being a star. She'll keep the kids locked up in the Orphanage like she did the dogs.

Another Southern Belle said...

Since it seems that K8's PR people are putting out false information about it being K8's show and being a done deal, it may just backfire on her. Paula Deen is a very strong woman and may not take very kindly to someone trying to usurp her authority. Don't tangle with a "Southern Belle".

Pa Mom Knows said...

No, she doesn't! Don't wish that on all of the good people on Andrew Avenue!

I don't even think she knows how to do "the only job she really needs."

She has had help all along, from the day the 6 were born. She will need "training" for any job she aspires to, even if it is to be a mother. She knows nothing except flapping her lips.

Sissy said...

How in the heck can Hailey, or any other female, really trust Jon again? He has ruined his life. I loved Jon, thought he was a wonderful parent. I don't know what to believe about him any more.

If he takes the twins to live with him in NY, that will sure be hard on all the kids. But Kate will really miss the twins. They are actually old enough now to be of help to Kate.

I can see J&K sending all the kids away to a private boarding school.

My husband's parents sent him away when he was only four years old. He was "in their way." He lived at a private boarding school until he graduated high school.

His life was without any parental love. He was a "poor little rich kid."

Merrilee said...

IF J&K+8 goes off the air, and IF Kate goes to the PD show, she won't make nearly the money she has made with TLC.

That would be fine with me. She doesn't need to make money by the bushel basket, but I can see her aspiring to a different format, something that shows her other than just being a mother.

___________________________________________

That's very interesting. Battle of the celebrity personalities. Paula is famous for being talented but Kate not so much. Personally, I think Kate has a "special arrangement" with someone in a powerful position to have gotten this far. She is such a nasty bitch there could be no other way.

I hope Paula's personality, star power and PR people will shut Kate down.

Pa Mom Knows said...

"My husband's parents sent him away when he was only four years old. He was "in their way." He lived at a private boarding school until he graduated high school."

I'm sorry to hear that he had such a bad experience. However, not all parents send their children to boarding school to get rid of them. We have an excellent all girl boarding school right here, not far from the kids' current school. I know several families whose daughters attend, and believe me, it's not to get rid of them. They are fabulous parents, and the children are being educated at an excellent school. I'm surprised that this hasn't been considered as an option for the twins (or maybe it has).

IMHO said...

I think that her PR folks are putting all this information about "her" show out there becasue they feel that "if you build it they will come"....their thinking is "if you say it's so enough it will happen".....

Shame on Kate said...

"Since it seems that K8's PR people are putting out false information about it being K8's show and being a done deal, it may just backfire on her."

---------

Yes, they are very sneaky. It's only a pilot, not a done deal. It's like Jessica Simpson's dad put up rumor that her daughter was going to star which movie to get publicity and support. It backfired.

rachel said...

---------

She will exploit her children as long as her face is on TV. She needs them for tabloid pop op, promotional pictures for any show she is in, and products. The kids will be in tabloid forever as long as Kate as a TV job.

Bored Teen said...

Saw a clip last night of Jon poising for cameras at the VMA awards. What and why?

You know what I find interesting? When Paula was faced with a broken marriage, she got her b*tt in gear and went to work. She made sandwiches and sold them to workers. I mean, she did whatever it took to support her kids.

That is so different from Kate expecting the world to take care of her 8 little "problems" for her.

Here's Hoping said...

I'm sure that Paula didn't really have a say in who came on to test for the pilot. If what I've read is true at least 20 people are jockying for position as one of her co-hosts. I'm sure that she'll have a say in who will be hired to work FOR her if this show gets off the ground. I can only hope that she'll do the right thing.

ErinKate said...

T think the handwriting is on the wall as far as the old TLC show goes. They have strayed too far from family-oriented entertainment and into disfunctional adult world of tabloids, sex and nasty behavior. They knew this would be the last year anyway because the kids are in school now, they are older and not as "interesting" as they once were when they were toddlers, which translates into less rating appeal. Look at any TV show at that was centered around children. Once they got older, babies were usually brought in. I think Kate figured this out on her own and knew where she was headed. Jon, on the other hand, (IMO) got wind of it and was pissed off that he would not be going along for the ride to fame with Kate.

ICExploitation said...

These types of shows are a dime a dozen - let's hope if it goes through it tanks just as fast. Knowing Kate's speaking abilities, this is probably an indication of how sustainable a show that includes her will be.

UsuallyLurk said...

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

So, Kate dumped the 2 older sister and stuck with the 6 money makers.

When these 6 get older, well she dump them too? Just like the dogs when they're no longer cute little things?

Ohio Buckeye said...

IMO:
Based on her behavior,contrary to her rhetoric about 'all about the kids', K8's real life and personal priorities are:

1) Attention and adoration
2) CONTROL, Control, control
3) $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

If she were at all wise, she'd be seeking counselling, NOT an ever-glowing spotlight center stage.

I just watched the clip from The View on Friday with Kathy Griffin. (It is the only part of the whole week I have watched.)

I hadn't seen the skit.

I just have to say, what amazingly thick skin Kate has. I cannot imagine sitting there, watching that, and then telling Kathy Griffin she is "awesome".

She is truly one of a kind.

""Personally, I think Kate has a "special arrangement" with someone in a powerful position to have gotten this far. She is such a nasty bitch there could be no other way.""

I have been wondering if there might be a "special" arrangement as well. I have been wondering if she is she sleeping with someone(s) at TLC to have been given such a huge pass on everything. She is a no talent, do nothing, average looking wretch and yet she is being catered to like a high profile talent.

Kate knows better than to get in a
rift with a real star such as Kathy Griffin. I bet Kate was seething inside, she's just a very good liar. Lying is her specialty. She said "You're awesome" - but we can be sure that's not Kate's true feelings.

jibbers said...

I highly doubt anyone from TLC is sleeping with Kate. Who would want to? She's not hot and there isn't any bragging rights.

TLC is supporting Kate because Kate is willing to sell herself and the children for money. The J&K episodes are still ranking in advertising revenue for TLC.

Jon is the one who wanted to end the show sometime during the end of season 3 or 4. He said he doesn't like being followed around while Kate said, No, I would love to keep this show going. I love this.

That's when Jon said, in his typical said look, "See this is the difference between us".

1 or 2 seasons later, it seems that Jon has grown to live with the attention.

Count me in said...

So what we just sit by and do nothing? I am a product of the
60's and let me tell you I have never, ever seen anything accomplished by sitting back and doing nothing. Everything good in this country whether women's rights, civil rights, getting innocent people out of prison, etc., etc., was because people spoke out. I for one will not sit by while these two attempt to turn our television viewing into something more sickening than it already is. Nor will I sit quietly while 8 little children are being exploited. I can't do anything about how people raise their children (we all make mistakes in that area), but I have a voice and I will use it to speak out against children working in reality shows with no laws in place to protect them. I will continue to write. Right now that is all I can do.

Bugs Bunny said...

I wonder when the poop finally hits the fan will all the people that saw and knew what was going on want in on the payout? That is the way it usually works. 1 person starts telling the story and the next one decides to cash in on it. What is Jon waiting for anyway? He says he has dirt why is he keeping it quiet? I am sure they both are to blame to an extent. Jon went along with Kate's plans because he realized he would also never have to *work* for a pittance again.

*****

Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery. Problem is, Kate can't seem to differentiate between imitation (people getting her hairdo), parody (as in Sat. Night Live) and mockery (Kathy's skit). Kathy was mocking Kate, but she saw it as parody. Lots of big names get parodied - the President, the Queen of England, senators, famous lawyers, etc. Kate thinks she's sitting with them now.

Katie said...

I just discovered that the price on their old home has dropped once again. It is now below 300K.

someone rat Kate out please said...

So if Stephanie's mom can blab to a tabloid with impunity, what's keeping the rest of the people in the know quiet? Stephanie signed a nondisclosure agreement but her Mon didn't, so how about the moms of all the nannies, maids, cameramen, craft service people, etc. Fair is fair. Amazing how Stephanie's mom seems to be pro-Kate, almost as if someone conspired with her to make Jon look bad...hmmmmm. Well I'm waiting for someone to spill the beans on Kate. That's where the real pathology lies.

IMHO it would not be the first time Kate and her PR team have started rumors or called the paparrazi and I have to say that this week's headline re the nanny, the one where Kate wanted to speak out about it on Friday on The View vs "taking the high road", just reeks that Team Kate were behind pushing the nanny to do the article.

I am sure it would be hard to prove but you have to admit, the timing was classic and advantageous -- for Kate.

As long as Kate's name is in front of the public, good or bad, the better it is for Kate, especially the "poor me" single mom angle. I am convinced that Kate is paying people to leave messages on the web sites anti-Jon and pro Kate. Her ego demands that she to be talked about at all times.

The fact that there is a pilot being shot which needs to be sold to a network ... as long as Kate is in headlines and/or on magazine covers, the chances for the pilot being sold are greater.

But on a side note, years ago I attended a taping of a pilot for a talk show for Gary Collins. It never sold. Nowadays there are more than enough talk shows on the air, so to sell one more which is similar to The View's format is going to be hard to do, especially with Kate and all the Gosselin negative publicity.

Also, I believe that viewers on their own due to all the publicity have figured out Kate is a grifter, child exploiter and of course, hates dogs. Viewers (and ones who have never heard of GWoP!) are sick and tired of hearing about her and Jon. So to have Kate as a cohost will backfire.

"An inside source at Telepictures Productions is stressing that Paula Deen, not Kate Gosselin, is the main star of an upcoming talk show."

No kidding. I have to giggle, poor Paula having to have her PR team stress this issue is not a good thing and they have yet to do the pilot! LOL

If there is a miracle and the pilot gets sold, no doubt we will hear about Kate pitching her daily fits on set trying to be in control of things. Paula will win of course but Kate's PR team will put a different spin on it!

As it is, Kate thinks she is the star of J&K+8 but we all know that without the tups, we never ever would have heard of Jon and Kate Gosselin.

How is that for a bit of reality Kate? You are *NOTHING* without the Gosselin six pack.

He's losing it said...

I still say the funniest stunt I've
heard them pull, is Jon charging $7.00 for an autographed picture of himself. Who the hell wants a photo of HIM. Is he losing it to think its actually about HIM?

jasmine said...

I think Kate has a good PR team, is very well connected, good attorney, etc. and they are all doing their jobs. Can't say the same for Jon. In fact, who would advise him to start a children's foundation asking for more donations. Is he being advised to bring reporters on his property, give impromptu interviews, take jobs drinking, picking up women, etc.? And why is it that Kate can do the View, film a pilot show, etc., but Jon is tied to TLC and cannot? It's seems like Jon fell into a deep well without a rope and he can't climb out. Maybe Jon should go to seminary school, like Jim McGreevey. His attorney claimed his celebrity worth was zero and he was unemployable. This worked in his favor during his divorce.

TMZ Checks Facts said...

Jon NEVER planned to sell $7 autographs. That was yet another bullish PR stunt by Kate's people to make Jon look bad. The media is already getting the word out on this per TMZ.

This very telling and funny....sure it must have been posted here somewhere before....altho I believe this list is outdated already. New kitchen??? Crooked houses?? South Carolina trip???

sue her, Jon said...

If Kate's PR team (what a thankless job) is really planting falsehoods about Jon to the tabloids ( and I believe they are, no one could be this unlucky), then why doesn't he sue her for slander? If he brought suit, they could subpoena the PR staff and tabloid people and bring a halt to this nonsense. Kate wouldn't know a high road if she drove 95 mph on one and for someone who is all about the kids, she sure thinks nothing of trashing their father. Her PR staff must hate he ( because she is evil), but love her (because she will provide them with a paycheck forever; no way to make the Princess of Darkness look good)

poolia said...

The only one charging money for anything is Kate. At $20 a pop. Jon was seen at the front of the Mansion on Fathers day talking to the paparazzi and signing autographs for the few that showed up with the photographers.

He then spent time with the kids, playing slip and slide and eating ice cream. Was it organic? I doubt it. Poor Kate. If she knew, she would have ran in and protected the kids from the inorganic Ice cream.

A tabloid is reporting that Jon had a vasectomy after the 6 kids were born.

That sure puts a snag in Kate's story about being infertile!!

If the rumor is true, and Jon's getting the twins it's because Kate tried to Hollywood them, and there
were no takers.

Obviously she sees potential ($$$)
in the other 6.

Just curious:

@ she's evil - i TOTALLY agree...once J & K + 8 is no more i bet she'll slam TLC the producers - everyone involved about how HARD it was but how she kept it going for the kids

We need to all write Paula Dean and her backing company and protest.
Tell them Paula's reputation will be ruined by Katezilla.
Anyone have their addresses?

Sal said...

So who is paying all these pr people to push Kate on America? It has to be costing millions.
I sadly think the children are.

Kate has to be connected to someone very rich and with power in the entertainment industry. How sick is that?!
When she falls on her face they will all dump her for good.

Kate has probably borrowed quite a lot to pay her PR agency, unless she conned them into working on a contingency.

I for one totally believe in KARMA.

Kate and her heinous personality will not last long working alongside other women....just mark my words. She'll be a memory long before the show gets off it's feet. Her ugliness will show...it can't be hidden.
--------------------------------
I agree. kate and her PR people might be good at smear tactics and twisting stories around, but there's no way she can keep it together when people challenge her and she gets angry. And I do think she will be challenged by these ladies...just like Whoopi. Steve can't be everywhere at once to soothe the savage beast.

Just curious:

In this week's people magazine there is a letter from a Crystal Kreider from York, Pennsylvania. Isn't Kreider Kate's maiden name?

The letter was definately anti-both and asked if there 15 minutes of fame didn't expire long ago? (paraphrased)

*****

Kreider is a very common name in PA. Like Brown or Williams are in other places. We can't assume any familial relationships.

fidosmommy said...

Maybe Jon should go to seminary school, like Jim McGreevey. His attorney claimed his celebrity worth was zero and he was unemployable. This worked in his favor during his divorce.


******
I hope people don't start enrolling in Seminary in order to "find work" or to win points in a divorce. Ministry is a calling. The job satisfaction is unbelievable, but the pay stinks. Think Jon would be interested?
Nah.

Yolanda said...

Paula will be a guest on The View on Tuesday (9/22). I have a feeling she'll talk about her new talk show.

Also, when I clicked on The View's home page, the video where Whoppi confront's Kate about the babysitter is the featured video.

(Sherry is REALLY annoying sometimes! Does she always interrupt at the most inopportune time?)

I loved when Joy talks about Kate being "shrewish"!

Yolanda said...

I found this May 2008 video at the Metropolitan Cooking and Entertainment show in Atlanta of Paula Deen announcing *her* talk show, which will start in "September 2009".

This has been in the works quite awhile.

I already wrote one. You know what to do.

Don't forget to mention the ratings of Jon and Kate are really bad right now, it's the prof that viewers boycott her and it's working.

I wrote I will boycott Paula's show if Kate is on just like I boycott Jon and Kate.

Kate shouldn't be on TV no more said...

The national enquirer is now reporting that they will split the kids with jon taking the twins.

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

That's why I think Kate should never be on any TV show, whether her kids are costars or not. As long as she is on TV, her kids will always be in tabloids.

Imagine you go to school and your friends say "So is your mom giving you to your dad?". Better yet, the mean girls come to you and say "So is your mom getting rid of you because you are not as valuable as the tups?"

kennedy said...

I bet Kate thought that people would be fighting over themselves to get her *famous* house. Well that idea didn't fly Katie. What next? A museum? (hope I didn't give TLC any ideas)
#################

People only fight over houses owned by real talents/legends like Michael Jackson or Elvis not reality casts. You have to have talent or real contribution to the society (former presidents) to become legends.

liz said...

Look at any TV show at that was centered around children. Once they got older, babies were usually brought in. I think Kate figured this out on her own and knew where she was headed.
..............

That's why Kate wanted to adopt a baby from Korea. Doesn't that scare you that babies mean money to Kate? Then she decided to get dogs instead. She compared babies to puppies. Amazing!

There are already enough snags in their stories, let's not make this one of them.

The snag I see is that if Kate was not able to have children without medical assistance, Jon's surgery was to keep him from having children with other women. This marriage may have been falling apart during her pregnancy.

Of course, we don't know for sure if and when Jon had any such surgery. Somehow, it seems like none of my business. And I sure don't want to see any closeups in tabloids to prove the point one way or the other.

Missy said...

I thought Kate was taking the high road and not discussing the gossip stuff for the sake of her kids???? She certainly couldn't wait to start talking about it on the View on Friday! I am glad Whoppi called her out on her flimsy story of her "intuition" for not liking the babysitter. Kate can't claim the gossip mags print all lies about her, but then claim the gossip about Jon must be true. We are not that naive.

she conned her doctor said...

twins Ohio,
Like you said, if your husband were with a fertile woman he could probably get her pregnant. So if Kate is/was infertile, why would Jon need a vasectomy? Anyway, I doubt she ever was infertile. And even if she was , why would any fertility doc do IUI on a 24 year old who has only been married a few months when her chances of conceiving naturally are so high? This is not the standard of care.

shawn said...

Paula planned her talk show long time ago. It never actually happened. I guess the TV execs are skeptical if Paula could carry a show on national TV. So they are shooting pilot this weekend. You think it will get picked up?

Nigle140 said...

I don't understand the reasoning behind people wanting Kate to fail with Paula Deen (or any other show). It seems to me that IF Kate can find herself a gig that does not involve the kids that would be a good thing - the end of the kids being exploited while Mommy makes a buck (or three) to help support a higher lifestyle for them.

Personally, I don't see any real talent nor interest with Kate. However, I do hope she is successful in whatever endeavors she pursues that does not involve her children. Wanting her to fail will only ultimately hurt the kids, IMO.

Patricia said...

Hi -
Posted a polite letter to Paula Deen's official website letting her know how upset I am with her aligning with Kate G. I said I will no longer be watching any of her TV shows, reading her magazines, or buying her products.

Yes, I saw this clip on E! channel and it was quieter but quite a clear statement. I think it was Mady that was saying this. What these children see and hear is what has REALLY happened. Pretty frightening.

-----------------------------------
If that's true, it would explain a few things: why Jon got a 2 bedroom condo and why he suddenly needed a "winter car" that seats 5 to name just 2.

I bet he figured that he's get at least 2 of the kids within a year. I also wouldn't be surprised if with a year or 2 he doesn't get at least 2 more of the kids.

RN in OBGYN said...

"A tabloid is reporting that Jon had a vasectomy after the 6 kids were born.

That sure puts a snag in Kate's story about being infertile!!"



Actually, many couples who have struggled with infertility choose to have vasectomies, tubal ligations or use birth control after they are 100% finished having babies. There are many, many stories of "oops" babies born after years of infertility, medical interventions, IVF pregnancies, etc. I believe I remember one of the earliest shows, Jon hinted said there would be NO MORE BABIES. It was obvious he didn't want an unplanned surprise or "just one more." I assumed then that he had had a vasectomy. I have a friend who struggled with infertility for years and had IVF miracle twins 6 years ago. She had a surprise pregnancy when the twins were just a few months old and had her tubes tied during delivery to prevent additional "surprises"! This is far more common than you may think!

Ohio Buckeye said...

Shawn asked if we think Paula Deen (& K8?)'s show will be picked up?

I dunno, but remember that K8ie Irene thought she had her next tome, "Love is in the Mix" in the bag, but the publisher apparently pulled out.

Now that we've seen a lethal dose of K8 in action at this point, I'm guessing it'll be an inverse proportion: the more involvement K8 has with any show, the less chance of that show surviving long term (if it's green lighted to begin with).

Proud mother of one said...

So Jon was one mile from my house last night at a haunted house. So that's how he is supporting his family? Autograph sessions at haunted houses? Supposedly, he was to charge $7 for an autograph, but in a Buffalo News.com article this morning, his PR team said he would never charge for an autograph because he is a family man (paraphrased).

But he'll certainly sell out his family... This whole situation makes me sick. When will their 15 minutes of fame be up? I used to be a huge fan, but now I've lost all respect for the parents. God bless the children. They need it.

Do we all remember Khate's interview on the Today show? When asked about her brother and sister-in-law, she said that you couldn't trust what they were saying because they were getting PAID. HMMM...Now all this stuff with the girlfriend's mother, should we believe her? Well according to Khate we should because of course it's making Jon look bad and making her look good (well in the sheeple's eyes anyways)

Tired of K8 said...

Some education about vascetomys and infertility.... my husband's boss was fertile, his wife at the time was not. They used artificial methods and she got pregnant with twins. They had unprotected sex about 2 months after the birth of the twins and wham - another child.

Guess who now has a vascetomy?

It's not unusual that after you have used fertility treatments the womans' body has been kickstarted and then will respond to more traditional means of getting pregnant.

It's also commonly accepted that when people finally give up trying, adopt, suddenly the wife becomes pregnant because the stress was relieved.

I don't know the why or how of Khate, but I can see that there may be more to this. Kudos' to Jon for getting snipped... even though he couldn't do the same for his own dogs.

Tired of K8 said...

RE: the split up of the kids. I don't see any court judge encouraging that notion. It's very rare when the courts will allow a family to be split; also rare for the mother not to be given primary custody.

OTOH I do think the twins are no longer cooperating with the filming and TLC is easing them out of production. So far so good. Soon the tups will pick up on their older siblings behavior and repeat the same, because that is what kids do! The laugh is on KON!

Personally believe this is a planted PR lie to increase ratings for the show... a show that has not had ratings released to the public for the last two weeks.

BTW in the next few weeks the Big Three start their new shows for the fall. Monday night is House for example. I suspect that the the show's ratings will continue to plummet when faced with real competition.

This begs the question why they do their season in the way they do. For example, Burn Notice, The Closer, Law and Order Criminal Intent etc... on TNT and USA has a split season that runs when the Big Three are on hiatus, and then when ABC, NBC, CBS goes on hiatus, these cable stations start the second half of their split season.

The JK8 show is about ready to be creamed.

Bored said...

I would think that if Paula Deen had been planning to do a talk show for a while, and she has the power to decide who is going to be co-hosting on her new talk show she would not want Kate. I doubt if Paula would want Kate upstaging her with all the publicity. Paula should realize all the attention is going to be on Kate and her drama. Kate, who is used to being the center of attention of her show with all her yes people, would expect the same treatment in the new show. She already showed signs of it on The View when she was talking to the camera looking for reaction and drawing all the conversations back to herself.
I personally don't think we need ANOTHER talk show anyway, especially with Paula Deen y'all.

typical Kate said...

I find the very thought that JON may gave been fixed after the tups were born a decision that sounds so typical of Kate. When you have a csection, especially one where such a wound needs to be made, it's a piece of cake to get your tubes tied. The docs are right there. And given that Kate had more kids than she could ever hope to afford or care for, why wouldn't she volunteer to be the one to be sterilized? This is even more falling in light of the fact that Kate twisted Jon's arm to convince him to try for just once more. Sometimes I wonder if Jon did her bidding just to shut her up. I can just see her screaming, yelling, whining, crying, love patting and guilting him until he relented, that is, unless he just went along with it to begin with

I decided to contact Paula Deen and give her a heads up about K, and how I will not watch her show if she hires her. The only place I knew to contact her is her show on the Food Network. Send her an email - if enough people send their boycott wishes to her maybe at least she will hear us. Sometimes I feel like those of us who are on this blog are in Whoville, and the only way anyone can hear us shouting is if we all shout together. Send her an email ASAP...!

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

Hi Paula,
I absolutely love your show. Your food is wonderful and you are a joy to watch -you make cooking fun!

Which makes me wonder, why on earth would you have Kate Gosselin on your show? Have you even met her or watched any of the terrible things that she & Jon have said & done over the past 9 months? I think she has been using her children and soon-to-be ex-husband as a stepping stone to fame. Just seeing how both of them have high $$ PR Firms and Lawyers spinning tabloid stories and giving tips to the paparazzi to catch each other in a compromising position in order to win their "PR Wars" is horrifying to me. They throw each other under the bus on national TV and then step back to see what sticks, all in the name of fame and money.

Kate keeps saying she needs to work for her kids. But if you do the math she & Jon have earned upwards of $8-$10 mil in the past 4 years. They could both easily live off the interest and STAY HOME WITH THEIR KIDS. KATE DOESN'T NEED TO WORK - SHE WANTS THE FAME - THERE IS A DIFFERENCE - and those poor kids are all in her fallout for the rest of their lives.

I love watching you and your show Paula, but I must tell you that if that woman is anywhere near your new show I will not be able to watch it or support it or any of your sponsors. There are many other women who represent the best in Motherhood - please hire them instead. Kate represents the worst in Motherhood because it is always and only all about her.

Best of Luck Paula,
Concerned in LA

kate is a cocky bitch said...

I never liked Paula Dean, just one more reason for me not to watch her.

Cassandra said...

I have come to the conclusion that their arrangements for the children are horrendous.

The kids have to be hurt by watching their parents come and go. They're probably never sure which parent will be around the house -- if either!

As much as it pains me, I suggest that the best solution would be for Kate to reside at the mcmansion... and for Jon to have unlimited visiting privileges. We know that Jon doesn't want to live there -- and Kate does. Kate is not there most of the time anyway, so the kids will not have to put up with her too much -- except when they're filming.

They would both retain ownership of the mcmansion -- and Kate can help to pay Jon's rent in NYC! Or Kate could buy Jon's half of the mcmansion from him. I haven't thought this all through -- but there's got to be a better way.

There are various ways this can work, but I think the kids need a parent who resides at their house all the time. They also need definite, agreed upon, caretakers. Not somebody new every week. I can't believe how those babysitters/nannies/helpers come and go. It's a revolving door.

The only drawback to an arrangement like this is that Kate could spitefully withhold Jon's access to his kids. There needs to be a punishment in place if she does that. Other than that, I think this could work out a whole lot better. We've all seen daddies who obviously have their kids for the day or the weekend. I think both Jon and Kate would be happy with that.

KatesBigFlintstoneToe said...

PEOPLE PLEASE, No emails to Paula Deen! Paula will never see them, her PR people will. They will LOVE the controversy of Kate! They'll pay her EXTRA to be co-host! It equals RATINGS! Please stop the email/protests, they dont work.

Lets ignore Kate so she'll GO AWAY!

Aunt Chris said...

I remember Kate once saying that she "just knew" she would have fertility issues. (which could mean until Jon came along she wondered if there'd be anybody dumb enough to want to "do" her). Now that fabulous instinct led her to the house when Stephanie was there babysitting. Wow - she's just like Kreskin, isn't she?!

Sasha222 said...

I don't know why you guys are worrying. That show is going to flop like nothing else ever has. Kate got sh!tious reviews on her awkwardness on The View. She simply doesn't have the personality or what it takes to host a talk show. She is just a regular person who happened to get famous from exploiting her kids on a reality show. She has no formal training in broadcasting and she has no natural talent either. I'm thinking Paula Dean brought her on because she knows that it would bring attention to this new show. We have to face facts that even people who hate Kate will watch out of curiosity. But I guarantee that she will not last. The show might, but she will not. She has way too much ridiculous tabloid coverage to be taken seriously. It would be like having Lindsey Lohan sit in for Kelly Ripa one day or something.

And btw- why do they still call the show Jon & Kate + plus 8? They aren't together so don't they think it's time to change it? It's awkward.

Anna said...

Right now the main headline on Radaronline is that Khate tanked on the view and may not be on Paula's show! I hope not, I like Paula but I couldnt stand to watch her show become a battle for attention between her and Khate.

The only way to shut Kate up is to put her on an episode of Celebrity Jeopardy.

(smirk, wonky eye wink).

ErinKate said...

I don't see what all the fuss is about Jon getting snipped. Of course, Kate could still get pregnant with IVF. Isn't that how she conceived the 6? Jon was smart. He was making damn sure HE would not be having any more. It also proves his earlier comments that he was happy with the 2 and a little bit overwhelmed at that. What put him over the edge was the impending birth of 6 more. I would have done the same thing if my spouse forced me to have more children (even just the "one more" when I clearly did not want that. That was the most responsible thing he has done thus far.

ErinKate said...

I am reading that Kate caught the eye of producers when she appeared on the View this week. That is a load of crapola. These shows are negotiated months in advance. That is the reason for all the visits to LA. They have been working on this for months.

I hear Kate was slammed by the critics. Does anyone have links?

my9cats said...

typicacl kate said....

IA. IMO the fact that Jon had a vasectomy right after the tups were born totally negates Kate's claim of not being able to get pregnant without meds. If she was having that much difficulty, there really would be no reason for Jon to take action.
And why, if she was already 'opened' with her C-section didn't she have it done herself? Nothing they do makes much sense.

Cocoa said...

I totally agree with Cassandra. The children should have the same two or three nannies all the time, not come and go babysitters who do not know the children. These poor kids have had enough of people(family, friends etc.)coming and going in their short lives. How will they ever bond with anyone?

Janice in Nc said...

I sent Paula Dean an email this past Thursday. Haven't heard back. Hopefully, she is getting enough emails to help her make an educated decision on hiring kHate to taint her show! I didn't say I wouldn't watch, or threaten anything like that. I basically said that she (Paula) seems to be a genuine person and that she should make sure she understands all that kHate represents and what she is out for. I really hope kHate doesn't get a 2nd shot after her "pilot' shooting.

How about some good news people??
Kate Gosselins poor showing as guest host on last weeks The View - critics called her unsteady and weak - has cast doubt on her ability to play a major role in Mom Logic, the new chat and information series she taping Sunday in New York.

Good for the kids. Now maybe their mother will start trying to be a mother instead of a starlet at her advanced age.

Kate's Performance "Unsteady and Weak"

"Kate Gosselin's poor showing as guest host on last week's The View - critics called her unsteady and weak - has cast doubt on her ability to play a major role in Mom Logic, the new chat and information series she's taping Sunday in New York.

Mom Logic will star Paula Deen, the Food Network superstar and proven TV personality. In addition to Kate Gosselin, other moms set for the pilot episode are Lee Woodruff, wife of ABC newsman Bob Woodruff, and former Early Show co-host Rene Syler.

The pilot is taping in the same New York studio that is the home to Martha Stewart and Tyra Banks' shows.

RadarOnline.com was the first to break the news about Kate's involvement with Mom Logic.

Paula is said to have the final say on who will ultimately be cast on the panel with her.

Kate is still under contract to TLC for Jon & Kate Plus 8 but she is anxious to eventually break away from anything that continues to tie her financially to her ex-husband. Mom Logic would be that break-away project.

pinkdiamond611 said...

Why is Jon having a vasectomy such a shock to people? I recall he stated months and months ago before the divorce in one of his interviews that he definitely won't be having any more children because he is physically unable to have any more. I always took it as he won't allow Khate to bamboozle him to have any more kids. He was happy with the twins and what has been alluded to that they were going to adopt one baby, that fell through, so Khate cried and carried on until Jon caved in.

Dunwoody Mom said...

Everyone just needs to relax. This was Paula Deen's pilot. This is her show. Kate was not even a "co-host", she was just a guest. Another lie perpetuated by Kate's PR people.

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

Sadly, I have to agree with this. For all our good intentions, we have to keep in mind that in the entertainment industry ANY attention is good attention. The network execs and advertisers don't care if we're watching Kate because we love her or hate her. All they care about is that we're interested in some way. The longer she appears on tabloid covers, and the more we protest her on various complaint lines, the more she appears to be "popular" and therefore a good risk for tv shows, etc.

Of course, it doesn't help that she seems to have some very good PR people behind her.

Love the name, by the way, Toe. Too funny.

go away gosselins said...

I personally hope that Kate gets the show, and does well. Anything to put the spotlight on her, and allow the kids to be out of said light, is a good thing.

I do not hope she "fails". She does need to support those kids, their dad won't. And anytime she is willing to support them, instead of making money OFF of them; I am for it. Yippee!

I actually think that she should stop these shams where she is portayed as some sort of "super mom" and cooking ace. She should have a show where she goes into unorganized people's homes, and teaches them how to organise their stuff! She should advise people on how to manage their time. These are the things that even her enemies would have to admit that she does well. She loves to humiliate people; she loves to be in charge; she loves to boss others around and she is good at organisation and managing other people's time.

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

It doesn't work that way. As long as Kate is on TV, her kids will always be on tabloids. She will still use her kids for promotion.

Kate and Jon love the press, good press and bad press, they love them all. They never shy away from press. They never want to lay low. We saw that. She never sheltered her children from paps. NEVER! She will continue to use her children for tabloid photo ops and network marketing and promotion pictures (or videos). It will never end.

Once you get a TV show, it's not the happy ending. You will be struggling for ratings. Sometimes ratings are up, sometimes down. You have to do something to help ratings. Even Oprah was criticized that she sensationalized her past to jump start the ratings. What do you think cold blood Kate will do?

It depends on how you do it. Some talk show hosts' children are always in the tabloids because their parents put them in spotlight to showcase that mommy brand or family brand. It usually backfires, people start to dig deeper and find out it's not as peachy as they want you to think. Kathie Lee Gifford in the 90s was the best example. Tabloids called her son monster and daughter Jon Benét Ramsey. Thank God Kathie Lee quit and allowed her kids to grow up out of public eye.

******

For SOME women it's a piece of cake. For others, it is not. It depends on the woman. I have several friends who have breezed through the double procedure. Others have suffered miserably from it. I have been told by most that their doctors wanted them to wait until they were through nursing their child, (or until their first surgery was completely healed), then return for the tube tying procedure. The pain from the c-section caused them to decide not to return at all. That's why (I'm told) they do the double surgery, and do it too often because it apparently causes some big time trouble later for many women.

I've never given birth, so all this is just info from physican friends and women who have had it done both ways.

Other moms being considered for "Mom Logic" include Lee Woodruff....

K8 is so out of her league on this one! From what I've seen, Lee W is an intelligent, educated, articulate woman who loyally stood by & lovingly cared for her husband through a horrific experience.

Putting K8 in a line up with a woman of such depth, breadth, and intelligence assures K8 will fail.

Tami said...

I do not hope she "fails". She does need to support those kids, their dad won't. And anytime she is willing to support them, instead of making money OFF of them; I am for it. Yippee!

I actually think that she should stop these shams where she is portayed as some sort of "super mom" and cooking ace. She should have a show where she goes into unorganized people's homes, and teaches them how to organise their stuff! She should advise people on how to manage their time. These are the things that even her enemies would have to admit that she does well. She loves to humiliate people; she loves to be in charge; she loves to boss others around and she is good at organisation and managing other people's time
******
Nope. Kate does not know how to organize nor manage time. She has a whole team of handlers who do that sort of thing. I want to know one thing she has organized on her OWN. And Jon would support them but the PR machine is building up Hate and burying him. She doesn't want him to make a living because then she can't cry poor and claim to be a single mom who is the only one supporting her kids.

She is anything but organized. The activities portrayed on this piece of fiction are all organized by TLC. She has tons of helpers and behind the scenes people as evidenced by the nannies and the guys who set up all her equipment.

Basically, she just sits around and acts like a shrew,always has. She has always been the hands off parent and Jon was always the opposite. Have you watched any of the previous shows? How is it organized that she never came prepared and that wherever they went there were always meltdowns going on? A mom of 8 would usually learn after a while. I have half that amount of kids and I have learned to prepare for trips.

Is it organized to expect JON to bring the portrait clothes along to her "best friend's house" and then have a hissy fit when he places them in the wrong area? Is it organized to not give instructions to your regular babysitter (and family member) if you are sooo against gum that they are not to have it? Then if they have it and you did not prepare, does it prove she is organized to go ballistic on small children?

Is it organized go wandering through an airport screaming like a banshee because you want your husband up front to lead when normal people just walk TOGETHER side by side? Is she organized because she cried out like a child when her kids ate ice cream at Disney World and she could not deal with them getting anything on their clothes yet SHE failed to bring bibs (the ever present bibs!) or more clothes? Was she organized when she sat on her white plastic chair in the garage and suddenly decided she wanted Jon to clean the garage when he wanted to spend the day playing with his children? Or when she showed her great skills by making her son lie on the laundry room floor when sick so as not to mess up his bed or in taking kids to a furniture store when one of her kids should have been at the pediatrician instead?

Please, someone share with me just why she is so organized! Jon is clearly being swallowed up by Kate's powerful PR machine right now so there will be anti-Jon stories everywhere, but anyone with half a memory does not need to be reminded just how horrid she is as a mother!

Why does she need a "logistics" guy? Because she can't do anything on her own!

I have to echo what others are saying DO NOT send e-mails to Paula Deen. The more they see kHate's name the more they think that she will generate ratings. If you want to send en e-mail send it saying how wonderful you think "insert name here" would be on the program and you'd be sure to tune in to see her.

typical Kate said:

I find the very thought that JON may gave been fixed after the tups were born a decision that sounds so typical of Kate. When you have a csection, especially one where such a wound needs to be made, it's a piece of cake to get your tubes tied.
--------------------------------
Actually, it's not always that easy of a decision (been there, done that). We discussed tubal ligation a lot before my third and final c-section; there are more complications from TLs compared to vasectomies (in fact, my OB/GYN joking said, "phew, I hate doing TLs during c-sections!" when we told him we were holding off).

Also, not to be morbid, but what if the baby (or babies in Kate's case) died during infancy? Rare in the US, but it still does happen. We decided to wait until our youngest was almost 2, and then my DH had a vasectomy. A few days of discomfort, but it was worth it to both of us for the peace of mind.

PoodleLady said...

Just watched " Jon & Kate Ugliest Moment's and found it unbelievable.
She just doesn't quit. Does she never watch herself? Sometimes she is teasing but not very often, is she showing off for the cameras as we see her do now? I see how difficult is is raising 8 children but that is no excuse to rag on your husband like that. Poor Kate doesn't know men very well. You just can't make them into what you want.
No excuse for Jon to do as he is doing but now I don't know what to think.

gherkin said...

Does anyone know exactly how these pilots work? I mean, they are shooting the pilot today in NYC. Who is in the audience and how were they chosen or invited? The articles say that Paula has the last say on who will be "co-hosting" the show with her, but does she just go with her gut feeling or is it based on an audience survey?

I'm just really curious about the whole process and I am certainly hoping Paula will veto Kate. I won't be watching it anyway. Just a little of Paula goes a long way with me. LOL.

goawayfools said...

There's all this discussion about Kate working so she can support the kids, but exactly how much money does this cow need to raise her kids? Yes, she's got a lot of them, but I can think of a lot of ways they can cut back. If Kate has to pay nannies, maids, gardeners, personal organic chefs, pool men, tuition to private school, multiple car and house notes, bodyguards, etc then s--t yeah, it's gonna cost a lot to raise those kids. (What DOES she do for those kids besides talk about taking care of them?). And those are only the expenses that directly or indirectly involve the kids. Don't get me started on all that Jon and Kate have spent on themselves. So when Kate boohoos that she's a single mom (no you're still married and your husband contributed in a huge way to your current wealth) and she needs to support her kids, I find my blood pressure going up.

Deep breath. For stress relief, I'd like to put it out there that Kate looked like a 50 year old tranny stuffed into his sister's too-small clothes on the View and that Whoopie very skillfully ripped him/her a new one while appearing not
to be. Ahhhh... I feel better now.

Anonymous said...

So radaronline has an article about Kate's future on Mom Logic being questionable, but then puts up more from the babysitter's mother about Jon leaving the babysitter in charge while he did press in New York. (I just looked at the headline and did not listen to the video.) Gee, Jon was in Amherst, NY on Saturday so who was watching the children last night and during the taping today? Could it be a babysitter? It must have been Kate's time to be with the children if leaving them with the not-a-nanny was OK. Radaronline and Kate's PR folks must think everyone is as dumb as a doornail.

OTOH I do think the twins are no longer cooperating with the filming and TLC is easing them out of production. So far so good. Soon the tups will pick up on their older siblings behavior and repeat the same, because that is what kids do! The laugh is on KON!

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

Wish I could agree. I think this circus will just keep on rolling along. There are enough rabid fans of hers to keep her going until she is an old woman. I think the laugh is on us and it always will be. People like K8 are like the Energizer Bunny, and it ain't pretty.

I am not as pessimistic or perhaps more realistic. No TV show except something like the news goes on forever and even on the news they replace the personnel. Law & Order is even on it's last legs at long last. The tups are losing cute every day now. The twins are no longer an integral part of the show. Kate and the tups will have a shelf life. Thankfully there aren't enough true sheeple to keep the farce on for even five more years. It will end, just not as quickly as we'd like. Take heart that TLC is burying all ratings info. :)

MickeyMcKean said...

I know a woman who had a son but was not in love with her husband. She asked him to get fixed, he did, and the following week she filed for divorce. She said she did not care if he married again, just that she wanted to be the only woman he ever had a child with.

Could Kate also be this cold hearted?

Could it be that Jon decided to get cut so he would not be used again "for just one more"?

IMO I believe that Kate, as a nurse, knew how and what would happen with the fertility treatment and the probable consequences, and she went forward anyway. She was hoping for multiples to get noticed and get freebies. It worked. Then came TLC.

Whether or not Jon was fully aware of what Kate was doing I have no idea but like someone else posted, Jon did say on the show that he would not be having any more kids.

This comment made me think that because Kate was in control, Jon would have to get cut so he was not "used" again by Kate.

Lots of questions but no answers because only Jon and Kate know the truth and they are not talking.

I remember there being an interview session with J&K on one of the very early shows where HE stated very clearly that there WOULD BE NO MORE BABIES! Kate seemed to imply (or maybe even say??) that she would like "just one more". I'm not sure that Kate would have stopped even though Jon sounded completely, totally, 100% finished. Maybe he didn't want to leave anything to chance... As I wrote in a previous post, there are lots of "surprise" babies out there after years of infertility treatments. (Not that I think Kate was infertile, but whatever...)

I agree with GosselinsGoAway: K8's true calling is more along the lines of Prison Guard/Warden.
She would be Officer Large and In Charge.

ABC said...

I really don't understand the commotion of Jon leaving the kids with a babysitter. When I babysat it was me and the kids. Not me, the kids, and a parent.

silimom said...

Also, if Jonboy DID actually have sex with the nanny,as reported in some of the tabloids, then how can he profess his love for Hailey on national T.V. stating he loves her more than he ever loved Khate, the mother of his eight kids?

****
Because, I'm sure, in Jon's mind there is a difference between love and sex. With the nanny, it was just sex. He probably believes that Hailey should be understanding of that. After all, she knows how badly Kate messed him up. Nothing is his fault. He's the victim.

NOT! Jon, you're kids are the victims here.

Ohio Buckeye said...

Oh, and I should've added in my description of K8 as "Officer Large and In Charge" - I'm not referring to K8's size, so no offense to anyone. I am referring to her Larger Than Life (and bossy as hell) personality.

silimom said...

I have to say that I agree with others who are calling on people to just ignore Khate's business dealings. In the long run, that will do the most good. Will she still have her faithful following, led by the infamous Baby Mama? Of course, but let's be honest, her following is really not that big. The rest of the country tunes in because we're voyeuristic. I think the fact that they are less and less in the tabloids is one indication that their noteriety is fading. When we email, call, write, etc. we show the people in charge of putting her on shows, in book deals, etc. that she generates interest, and as has been said, that's all the big wigs are really interested in.

By next year, they will be done. TLC is already promoting the Duggars as the next BIG thing, as America's Favorite Family. The Gosselins are on the way out - the signs are there and Kate will go the way of other D Listers (I don't consider Kathy Griffin D List at this point).

What's sad is how this will affect the kids, when the cameras finally go away, when they lose the mcMansion, when they have to leave their private school and attend public school, when they have to move into a 3 bedroom house because that's all Mom or Dad can afford. Kate and Jon will both be on public assistance so fast it will make our heads swim once they run out of money, which I anticipate also happening in the next 3-5 years.

There's all this discussion about Kate working so she can support the kids, but exactly how much money does this cow need to raise her kids? Yes, she's got a lot of them, but I can think of a lot of ways they can cut back.

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

I TOTALLY agree -- and I wish ONE fool interviewer would call her out on this fact. Yes, 8 kids are a lot for a family in this day and age, and kids cost money to raise. But when will someone tell Kate that kids don't need endless trips, a McMansion, private schools, much less fool parents who squander their money on themselves. My cousin has 8 kids -- no college education and his wife never worked. He started his own business and worked his ass off, and all kids have never gone without. My friend is one of 9 -- all raised in a 3 bedroom house. He has nothing but great stories about bike-riding, swimming, and having fun with all his siblings (i.e., "cheap" fun).

I could go on and on with examples, but I'm sure you all get my point. You don't have to be a millionaire to raise 8 kids. You have to be frugal and smart.

Another point that annoys me to no end is why no fool interviewer will ask Kate the real question: WHY on God's good earth did you bring SIX more kids into the world when neither of you had the income to provide for more than the two you already had???? Being a nurse, and having already done fertility treatments, you KNEW multiples were almost guaranteed.

I'm sorry, but poor planning and poor decision-making on Jon and Kate's part do not make the world beholden to supporting them -- and certainly doesn't entitle Kate to life as a celebrity.

I truely I hope that the two older ones will be released from their bondage. These girls are at an age where it takes anything to trigger embarassment for themselves and being on the receiving end of the constant teasing or side glances,or chide remarks, etc from their peers. How awful it must be for them to suffer this way from the actions and behaviors of both their selfish idiotic parents. Hopefully, their teachers will embrace these children and know that it is not their own doing. But still, its a cruel world and I am so sure they must still be getting "it"(cruel jokes, other kid torment) at school.

Nope. Kate does not know how to organize nor manage time. She has a whole team of handlers who do that sort of thing. I want to know one thing she has organized on her OWN.

Kate could have used some help organizing her kitchen before the major remodel. The kitchen cabinets looked like mine, which is to say disorganized. Big time.

Kate had to take a professional
organizer with her to choose the
furniture to organize the kids' things at the E-town house. She didn't have a clue what she needed
and had to lean heavily on the pro.
Even I can figure out what I have,
what kind of space I need for it and what sort of storage I need
(open shelves, bins, closed cabinets). And I have NO organizational skills whatsoever.

No, what Kate displays recently is
a need to have control in her world and no idea how to get it.

Tired of K8 said...

The show is on it's way out... the lack of ratings for the last two weeks is a clear indicator. House starts Monday nights and so do other shows... the ratings will continue to tank.

Khate's antics have not increased the show's viewership and only increases her name recognition. Obviously that is not selling her SHOW... although it may sell HER.

Personally, I will put my vote in that this show will not be returning for another season. KON will bow out, the two twins are being difficult, and a court judge for the divorce is going to weigh in also.

Fafsa said...

Oh no... Kate just received a "thumbs up" review from the studio and her bosses after her shooting "mom logic".

Not a stupid question at all.

No news from Kate's family at all.

While Jon's mother isn't saying anything, Jon now allows his family to visit them. Apparently (I don't watch) Mady got to spend time with Jon's mom off camera instead of fishing with Dad on a episode recently.

And Jon had three generations of his family over, yet it was the only time in the last year that the paps were not taking pictures; although they were there and got pictures of his new car that day!

OK...I just happened to catch a segment on GMA a minute ago called Walmart photo flap...A couple went into a walmart to pick up family photos. Seems they had a few pics of their 3 daughters playing in the bathtub. Well they took the 3 kids away citing Child pornography. I am like WTF??? They had to be examined at a hospital for signs of abuse before a judge ruled it was innocent and let the parents have their girls back.. OK NOW MY BEEF...Haven't we all seen the Gosselin kids full frontal nudity on NATIONAL TV and NOTHING IS DONE. Sorry but I have had about all I can take of these 2 freaks and TLC. One 1 hand you have an innocent family taking bath pictures of their kids for their own eyes to see and get arrested but yet you can watch 8 kids get exploited on tv and nothing is done whatsoever. Now you tell me who is going to do something about this. I truly believe that the G's could give their kids a black eye and the headlines would read....( ) had it coming to them and defend the actions of the parents. When does it all end?

MickeyMcKean said...

I went to ROL this morning to see what they had re the Emmys.

While on the web site, I noted that yesterday ROL posted a story: "Kate's Uncertain Future With Mom Logic Chat Show ... Kate Gosselin's poor showing as guest host on last week's The View - The Baltimore Sun called her "intellectually and verbally slow" - has cast doubt on her ability to play a major role in Mom Logic, the new chat and information series she's taping Sunday in New York." I figured this story would be pulled as soon as Kate's PR people saw it but now with all the emmy stories it is still there on page 3 or 4 - technically buried.

Now there is a new story: Kate Gosselin taped the pilot for her new TV show Sunday and got thumbs-up reviews from everyone in the studio and her bosses ...". I did not open up the story but I note that there are 555 comments. Looks like Kate's PR people work on Sundays too.

Which story do I think is the truth? The first one of course. IMO Kate's future as a talk show host is slim to none but hey, if she can get hired and J&K+8 ends then I'm all for it. I won't watch it of course, just like I don't watch J&K+8 and haven't for months now.

So, Kate, when do you find the time to fix the world and make the house right? Did the kids miss eating bloody chicken and deviled eggs? Did you hear that they had to get rid of their dogs this week because you didn't want them (the dogs, not the kids, though I'm not so sure anymore). If so, why did you elbow those little kids out of your way like a roller derby queen to get to those puppies first? What do the kids think of your makeover/sex change? Did they want you to have all that plastic surgery? Gosh, you are truly incredible, as in I can't believe you, in case you don't know the actual definition

cheryl said...

Like millions of others who were once

Perhaps k will have some success in other endeavors - however, true to form, she'll run her mouth, thus
ending all. I believe this divorce will severely damage any financial gains they have accured.
Enjoy the recaps as I've not seen a show in months. Thanks again for your efforts.

Kate's PR and Radar are at it again:

Kate Gosselin taped the pilot for her new TV show Sunday and got thumbs-up reviews from everyone in the studio and her bosses, RadarOnline.com learned exclusively.

The show, based on the Web site Mom Logic, was taped in New York City at the Chelsea studios.

Southern cooking expert Paula Deen, Rene Syler and Lee Woodruff have significant roles on the show, which does not feature Kate as the star, but integrates her into the ensemble.

Show executives scrambled at the last minute and changed their mind on guests for the pilot. They had originally decided on Mel B and Christie Brinkley but scheduling problems and differences of opinion led to a change of plans during the last few days. That type of upheaval is commonplace with TV pilots, a person connected to the show told RadarOnline.com.

And one source familiar with the taping told RadarOnline.com: “It went extremely well. Everyone there loved it. And Kate did great. There’s no question that she was a hit.”

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

She'll just have a guest spot, some type of short segment, looks like. Not the CO-HOST that her PR wanted everyone to think.

>>It's also commonly accepted that when people finally give up trying, adopt, suddenly the wife becomes pregnant because the stress was relieved.<<

If only this were true. If this were, then most adoptive families would only have one adopted child to "relieve stress" and the rest would be biological. The fact that so many people have 2+ adopted children mean that even years of trying do not yield bio kids.

Myth: "If you adopt a baby you will get pregnant!"
Fact: Almost every infertile couple has probably heard the story from a relative or friend about someone who became pregnant right after they adopted. However, studies prove that the pregnancy rate after adopting is the same for those who do not adopt (5% each) - it's just the ones who adopt and then acheive pregnancy are the ones you hear about more often.

The longer Jon remains unemployed, whether it be via an intential smear campaign on behalf of Kate's 'handlers' or not, the more security KATE has in keeping JOn right where she has always wanted him to be; the full time care provider aka stay at home dad while KATE travels across country in pursuit of her 'dream job'.

I agree that the show needs to stop now for the kids' sakes, but I wonder how much better post-show life will be. They will have more privacy, but will Kate let their grandparents and uncle and aunt back into their lives? Will someone be there to advocate for them and try to halt the abuse?

I finally say on Youtube the Whoopi/Kate clip regarding the babysitter.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-XMuFkXCgw

My impression is that Whoopi really didn't go after Kate except that her point was that Jon had custody and she should have not interferred.

The big thing I noticed was how much Kate lied. She never explained why she showed up other than her "motherly instincts".

And her outfit----waaaay too small. The girl is probably putting on a few with all that dining out with Steve.

All in all, it looks like Kate got a pass from The View ladies.

Free Aaden said...

Did anyone see the latest issue of People magazine? There is a letter to the editor signed by Crystal Kreider. Do you think that is Kate's sister or somebody posing as her sister? I would think People would try to verify something so inflammatory before publishing, but, who knows? Any thoughts?

Would it be rude to ask bloggers to include a short description of the link they are posting?

It would just be nice to know what the link is pertaining to.

Hope its okay to ask.

Ashley in NC, there are clients that aren't worth putting up with for all the money in the world. My guess would be that Jon is one of them.

Kate Gosselin's hilariously ill-conceived show--"Mom Logic"-- filmed today, here's the details...
September 20, 10:53 PM
Dallas Comedy Examiner Scott

Details on Kate's new show are hilariously recounted below...

Kate Gosselin-- reality TV star, mother of 8, owner of the world's most gravity-defying haircut, and divorce advocate-- is a favorite target for the snark here at the Comedy Examiner's Office. Having just finished filming the pilot for her new show, "Mom Logic", details are beginning to surface that make the whole thing sound even more hilariously ill-conceived than it already appeared. Read on, gentle Examiner readers...

The Comedy Examiner's Office wants to make a pledge. The pledge is this: the Comedy Examiner will continue to cover the hilariously "FAIL"-esque lives of Jon and Kate Gosselin until they get back together. Until that time, the snarkiness and sarcasm are going to continue. The gauntlet has been thrown down, Gosselins-- make your move.

While we're waiting on that, new details have emerged regarding Kate Gosselin's ill-conceived new talk show, "Mom Logic" (read my original coverage of this show here, in case you're not up to speed on this disastrous situation). As always, our friends over at Radar.com have gotten their hands on this information, and now I present it to you in my usual cynical, comedic manner. It's what's known as the "Circle of Smart-Ass": something happens, Radar (or some other site) reports, and the Comedy Examiner puts it through the "Sarcasm Prism" for you to digest more easily. Really, you don't wanna be getting this information with a funny-fliter, trust me.

First of all, they're reporting that the first guest slated to appear on the show is Mel B. You know, the one from the Spice Girls, that band that was relevant back when I was in my junior year of high school? Yeah, I guess someone at the network still thinks she has something to say, so she's been asked to come on "Mom Logic" and dispense some pearls of wisdom. Mel B was, of course, "Scary Spice", and when that band broke up she went on to bang comedian Eddie Murphy, get dumped and pregnant (not in that order), and then collect checks from him for the rest of her life. Between her, Kate, and Sandra Bernhard, "Mom Logic" sounds like a "Classy Lady Convention" to this writer.

And, what's this? No Sandra Bernhard? That's right, folks: execs producing the show decided against having the comedienne onto the show. Radar doesn't list a reason for this, but we can assume that the execs decided not to have Sandra Bernhard on the show because she is Sandra Bernhard. No one likes Sandra Bernhard. And if you dare to challenge that, I will sit you down and force you to watch her performance in "Hudson Hawk", so don't tempt me. Bernhard was originally rumored to be a co-host, but who knows? She coulda been slated as a guest or something.

Great story posted last week on the Gosselins, and just confirms what everyone on here has been saying for a couple years now:

livnluv said...

examiner.com - continued from previous post...

Original guest Christie Brinkley is said to have backed out of appearing. Let's take a moment to note that Christie Brinkley was once married to Billy Joel, got divorced, and then spent the rest of her waking days pondering why the hell she would have ever slept with Billy Joel. You can see where the network's execs figured she and Kate would have something in common: none-too-bright blondes who both dated, married, and divorced some pretty ugly dudes who wear obnoxious clothing and are famous in their own right. I smell a Jon/Joel teamup in the works!

There are also rumblings that the show is not, in fact, Kate Gosselin-centric. When this news originally broke, the inference was that "Mom Logic" was basically "The Kate Gosselin Show". Little by little, however, the network has been sending up smoke signals that indicate that wasn't the case. First, we learned that she'd not be the host, but part of a panel of hosts (again, the show is basically a ripoff of "The View"). Next, they let it slip that the unofficial lead on the show would be Southern cooking expert (?) Paula Deen, famous for having never been heard of by me. And now that the show's been filmed (just today, in fact), we learn that Deen will have "final say" on who gets to co-host with her.

That might spell trouble for the Comedy Examiner's favorite mother-of-8. Just a week ago, she co-hosted "The View" and received some mixed critical results. And by "mixed" I mean that people aligning themselves with "Team Kate" fell all over themselves praising her performance and strength (because it takes an enormous amount of strength to sit in a chair and talk about things with Whoopi Goldberg--exhausting), while otheres...did not. For instance, "The Baltimore Sun" called her "intellectually and verbally slow".

Did "The Baltimore Sun" just "tella b-tch"? Remind me not to get on their bad side; that's straight gangsta of 'em.

The article is quite long and goes on a bit. Too funny

stopthemadness said...

We will have out tvs tuned to Monday night football and or ESPN and the one in the bedroom to House, in case anyone's counting!


If Kate gets to look any more like the Grinch I hope I don't know about it. She is CREEPY looking and that new hairstyle is about one step above the old 'do, the bangs are too long and she's in her 30's - she's too old for those asymetrical "looks" anyhow.

I love it that critics thought she tanked on the View. I think everyone's gotten sick of her. They can sell the mansion and live in a normal house, they have millions in the bank from the show and if they don't it's their own fault for thinking they were going to be the Next Oprah rather than saving. The kids won't starve and I don't think people care if they get to stay in that house, only Kate has this issue about how the kids deserve all that. Because they've been exploited and manipulated.

Letters to Paul about OTHER possible hosts would be interesting, people who are positive role models and are real people like her. I won't write to her about Kate, it gives too much life to the negative to continue to negate it. Wean yourselves off, the clicks are coming largely from those who cannot stand her, is my impression. If we pull out, her balloon will deflate very quickly the same way it filled with hot air.

Tired of K8 said...
The show is on it's way out...
the lack of ratings for the last two weeks is a clear indicator...
Personally, I will put my vote in that this show will not be returning for another season.

___________________________________

Actually, this is what, the 7th(?) show out of the 40 that are supposed to be filmed for season 5?

I don't see how TLC can justify spending the costs for filming just another 5 shows considering all the Gosselin antics and how people are getting sick and tired of anything Gosselin - Kate or Jon.

I won't be watching J&KExploit8 of course. These days I prefer to read the recap here on this blog so there is no way that the network will think my household has any interest in TLC whatsoever.

Merrilee said...

What's sad is how this will affect the kids, when the cameras finally go away, when they lose the mcMansion, when they have to leave their private school and attend public school, when they have to move into a 3 bedroom house because that's all Mom or Dad can afford. Kate and Jon will both be on public assistance so fast it will make our heads swim once they run out of money, which I anticipate also happening in the next 3-5 years.

................................

If all this were to actually happen, it would not be sad at all. It would be a very good thing.

Coming back down to earth would be a "step up" for Kate, and the kids would get along just fine. Their lives couldn't ever be as hard as they are now.

She's A Snake! said...

Personally, I will put my vote in that this show will not be returning for another season. KON will bow out, the two twins are being difficult, and a court judge for the divorce is going to weigh in also.

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

Are you dreaming, is this a true prediction, or are you using a crystal ball?

I SO hope you are correct. I find it all hard to believe. Kate the Snake keeps on slithering along and will do so for quite some time.

public eye said...
I don't understand the reasoning behind people wanting Kate to fail with Paula Deen (or any other show). It seems to me that IF Kate can find herself a gig that does not involve the kids that would be a good thing - the end of the kids being exploited while Mommy makes a buck (or three) to help support a higher lifestyle for them.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Kate should never be in the public eye again. She will never see herself as a mere mortal as long as she is in the public eye.

Get off TV, Kate.

Get yourself a job where actual work is required and actual pay comes from the ability to do that work.

Jon, get yourself a job too! Shame on you for being the slug you have morphed into.

It is obvious neither of you cares to be full-time parents to the 8 kids you spawned.

Go away, Jon and Kate. Go far, far away.

Jon, I'm like, Write Your Own Book! said...

check, please said...
So if Kate's PR people are trouncing Jon, why isn't he fighting back? I mean, he got more flak over the dogs than she did! I wonder if Jon is letting her smear him, thereby making him less employable/ poorer in order to stick her with a big alimony check each month. It was serve the saggy witch right.

9/20/2009 4:35 PM
..................................

Why can't Jon see the value in "writing" his own tell-all book?

I know, Beth wrote Kate's book, so isn't there someone out there that can "write" Jon's book?

That would sell like hotcakes. People love to hate Kate, and that would be a top seller!

JON -- "write" what life was really like at the Gosselins.

Sissy said...

Doesn't Dancing With The Stars start tonight?

I plan to watch DWTS. It will be fun to enjoy what I am watching, rather than be fuming at what I am watching.

erin said...

Someone asked about all the motions: Jon's lawyer withdrew, there was notice of the withdrawal as well as notice of new counsel. Pro hac vice motions mean "for this case only," basically meaning that his currently lawyer is asking to be allowed to practice in PA for this case only. If you are not a member of the state bar, you cannot practice in courts in that state. If you do you can be sanctioned, and lose your license in your admitting state as well as in the state in which you practiced unlawfully. Basically all those motions boil down to an out of state lawyer asking to appear in the PA courts for this case only.

Could Kate's cook book be published after all? I don't know.

re: the vasectomy

Maybe John didn't trust Kate to not go behind his back and try again. It's possible that he didn't know she was overstimulated when they conceived the tups.

Stop Saying Folks said...

I HATE the word "Folks".

When I see it, it blinds me with rage. That is all.

SKB516 said...

Add me to those who would pay to hear an interviewer call K8 out on the amount of $ she seems to think it takes to raise her kids. I've heard several sympathizers call into various entertainment shows defending her because "she's gotta raise those babies somehow!". First of all, consider all the $ they've already made from the show, the books, the appearances, etc. That alone, if it was saved & invested smartly, should give them a nice cushion for years to come. Then I heard someone whine that the economy is in such bad shape that K8 would never get a "real job" anyway. I beg to differ. As a RN, she would be in a much better position than someone in another field to get a job & a decent paying one at that. I know people who just graduated from college who snagged excellent nursing jobs at major, nationally ranked medical centers without even having experience. Not that I would want K8 to be my nurse, but I think she would be able to find a job somewhere if she had to. Then there are those who try to excuse it by saying that the kids wouldn't have as many opportunities if K8 was working a normal job- that maybe they could get by, but what about the trips & other nice things the kids are used to. Oh please. First of all, they have already been on more trips & had more luxeries than most grown people will ever have in their lifetimes! Second, why do they need these things that most people don't have? When I was young, my parents would scrap together the money for a 3-day beach vacation once a year if we were lucky. But you know what, I had a great time when we were able to go somewhere, I grew up just fine, & I don't resent my family for not being able to travel all over. Priorities, people!

I also have to comment on the talk show situation. I'm not really a follower of Paula Deen, but from what I do know, she struggled quite a bit as a single mother trying to raise her sons when they were younger. Obviously she worked hard to get where she is now, so I'm wondering what she really thinks of K8 & her acting like a martyr because she's supporting her kids on gobs of money. I also seem to recall an interview I heard some time ago where Paula was talking about getting started, and while she spoke of the challenges she had after her divorce, she made it a point to say, sincerely, that her first husband was a good man, they just weren't meant to be together. Can you imagine K8 saying something like that?

Missy said:

I am glad Whoppi called her out on her flimsy story of her "intuition" for not liking the babysitter.

___________

I agree! Whoopi did a great job of making that point, and in hammering home another point that it was against the law for K. to be on the property anyway during Jon's custody period, as she admitted to being that day.

Bravo, Whoopi! You brought some refreshing and much-needed honesty to the discussion.

For K. to say the ONLY babysitters allowed are those agreed upon by both parents is patently absurd. Jon's as much a parent as she is, and has every right to choose whomever HE wants, and not in conjunction with her always-more-important wishes.

It's just like her saying a while back that she'll demand spending every holiday with her kids. Hello? Isn't there another parent involved here, or is she the only one?

Warped thinking in play here, and it ain't Jon's.

AJC said...

Vote here! NY Daily News ask if Whoopi was right to slam Kate for trying to bust in on Jons visitation

Jen said...

Why Jon would need to get snipped when Kate couldn't have children without fertility treatments is beyond me.

Unless of course, she could all along.

Allegedly,Jon *did* say he has lots of dirt on Kate and it will eventually come out.

Vanessa said...

Sure, have her do a show where she goes into someone's house and reorganizes it! In all those types of shows the hosts actually DO the work, you know...break actually break a sweat.

texas two step said...

Wondering if anyone out there got the trash mags regarding "nanny-gate".
I broke down and got both the In Touch and the Star- to read both the mom's version and the nanny's.
After reading and re-reading both of them, something just doesn't jive.
What I did find VERY interesting was that the mother was said to have spoken with khate on the phone about Stephanie.

hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm..... now I do remember possum head having said on The View that she had NEVER spoken to the nanny....But yet she (per the nanny's mother) had conversations with the nanny's mother??????

Trust me, I don't think Jon-e-boy is a saint, but I'm smellin a Dead Possum Head everywhere on this. I truly believe that TLC /kHate are 100% behind this campaign and funding the smear project against Jon. Discovery Communications appears to have resources and more importantly connections available for smear campaigns.

LP said...

Is this the calm before the storm? All seems to be quiet on the Gosselin front.

KhateFreaksMeOut said...

Interesting how many posts are on here about Jon's supposedly $7 autographs/haunted house sighting.
Makes me think TLC, the Khate Lovers and the freaks who put out the lies about Jon are on here in full force.
Go away losers.

LB said...

I cannot believe how many people are gullible about the Stephanie news, including Kate. Tabloids are fodder news and are not always truthful. Recall that many times they have been sued for printing false information. So I wouldn’t hold that over anyone’s head. I’m flabbergastered that people would actually believe that and plus Kate would take the words of a rag magazine over Jon’s words which she stated on national TV. I don’t even know what to say about that. Even more what Stephanie is saying about the children is so ridiculous. How can anyone believe that a 5-year-old child would actually say that? She is actually making the children sound kinda dumb and I wish she would stop making up things to be printed. She was there, what, one month? And for how many days in total? Realistically that’s not long enough for a child to develop a ‘loving relationship’ with an adult and they already have a revolving door of babysitters anyway. And they wanted her to be their new mommy? Get real, people. Children that young would never want anyone else to replace their mother. They would actually want their parents TO STAY TOGETHER. I’ve heard of young children going to extreme measures to get their parents back together. That girl is just as cuckoo as Kate Major! Your 15-minute fame is up, girl.

enoughalready said... "...Hopefully, their teachers will embrace these children and know that it is not their own doing. But still, its a cruel world and I am so sure they must still be getting "it"(cruel jokes, other kid torment) at school."

Perhaps I'm more optimistic, but I think it's quite possible that Mady and Cara aren't getting teased at school by their classmates. Most schools today have very strict rules against bullying, which is what you are describing. And lots of kids actually are kind-hearted and would, in fact, not tease their friends about something like this. Also, I have faith that many of the parents are telling their own children as little as possible about the tabloid rumors, and are also telling their children to be nice and not tease Mady and Cara.
