Saturday Fun Time - Title the Book

I was thinking since Jon and Kate are both rumored to be writing tell all books wouldn't it be fun to try and guess what the titles might be? Here a a few of my guesses.

For example in the Non Fiction Section

My TRUTH....All the lies I have told by Kate Gosselin

My TRUTH....All the lies I have told by Jon Gosselin

Our TRUTH....All the lies we have told by Jon and Kate

The REAL TRUTH....and other Myths by TLC

You TRULY believed it was a documentary?...by Eileen O'neil

The TRUTH is in the lies of the beTolder........by Jon & Kate

In the Fiction Section:

The Simple Truth...by the Gosselin Kids.


I could go on and on (and probably will) but I know you all want a chance to write the titles!

Butterflies & Water Rockets Recap

Welcome to another Zzzzzzzzzzzzepisode of Kate and Kate plus Kate!

The zzzzepisode starts out with Kate explaining that they had planned to take the kids on trips in small groups: Cara got to go skiing with Jon *cough and Deanna cough*, Mady got sent to San Diego spas with Kate, and the boy tups got dragged to Wyoming. Since school was about to start (wasn’t the school episode a few weeks ago? Say it with me people... continuity!) Kate thought she better hurry and get the girl tups on a trip, although she never seems to have a problem taking the twins out of school for various show tapings, I mean “life experiences.” Kate tells us that it’s not about where you go, it is the time you spend and invest. But this is Kate, so to “spend and invest time in her kids” it requires ignoring the five or six local butterfly exhibits and sanctuaries and making an 800 mile trip to Butterfly World in Florida. Thank goodness they didn’t make us watch them organize, pack and board the plane because this recap would be over. continue

Dropping of the Mask

As an Irish resident I am a couple of J&K seasons behind the rest of you on the GWoP site.

I had watched seasons one and two and when I initially came across GWoP I thought wow, what is their collective problem with Kate?

So, I clicked out of the site and made a mental note never to return. Instead, I found Gosselin positive websites and immersed myself in them.

I know now I was a sheeple.

TLC Files Breach of Contract Suit Against Jon

Just when we thought that TLC might just show a shred of decency, they go and do something like this.

The lawsuit, filed Friday in Maryland, alleges that Gosselin hasn't met the obligations of his contract as an exclusive employee, has appeared on other programs for pay and made unauthorized disclosures about the show.


one of many stories

Why no lawsuit against Kate? She's been on about 1000% more programs than Jon. I don't think any of us are going to believe she didn't get paid for all those Larry King or The View appearances. The reality of this lawsuit boils down to one thing. Jon spoke out and is telling the dirty little secrets TLC doesn't want the public to know, or rather, making "unauthorized disclosures."

Hopefully the other families on TLC are paying close attention to this debacle and remember it when it comes time to renew their own shows.

Finally? Maybe? Hopefully? May We Celebrate?

Jon & Kate Plus 8 will officially end in mid to late November, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.

TLC has not made an announcement but RadarOnline.com has confirmed with sources outside the network that there is just enough unused new footage to take them through about another month."They will eek out what they can in terms of more shows," a source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com.

"Obviously they are not shooting anymore so they are taking what they have and seeing how many more episodes they can get out of it." Jon Gosselin has told the network they no longer have his permission to film the children and TLC will not challenge that. If Jon changes, his mind, they will go into production on the new show, Kate Plus 8.

"TLC has no plans to film unless the situation is resolved," the source told RadarOnline.com. Considering that the Gosselin divorce has turned into all-out war, it doesn't seem like Jon and Kate can resolve anything without a judge present, so prepare to say goodbye to original episodes of the show.

School Days Recap

Judging by the comments I read here before I watched the episode, I had no doubts a trainwreck awaited me before I even hit play on the DVR. But hey, at least I had Kate pitching things down the stairs in yet another hissy fit to look forward to. That was sure to be a high point in the latest TLC disaster of an episode. But would it also be the episode low point? continue

Monday, October 12, School Days

About Those Truly Hazardous Doritos


I’ve been thinking about Kate’s first day on The View, and how proud she was that her kids don’t know what a Dorito is (insert rambling about Mommy, what are these triangular looking things?)

Oh, Kate. You’ve sheltered them from Doritos, but not papparazi, hurtful remarks to their father or cameras in the bathroom. I’m not going to take this opportunity to grill you about the divorce; you’re certainly not the first person to hash it out in public.

I just want you to take that Dorito comment and dare to expand your horizons. Think big. What if your kids could live in a world where they didn’t know what a stretch limo or a bodyguard was? Yes, I hear (but don’t see) your point: this is their normal, so let’s try some more attainable dreams.

Are the Cameras Gone?


I just heard on Showbiz Tonight that they pulled the TLC cameras out of the Gosselin home today. I consider that a real success and cause for celebration. Now maybe if we go away and quit peering into the windows this family, they can work on their problems privately and redeem whatever is left of their children's childhood. I don't know how or why Jon came to his senses and pulled the plug on TLC, but I'm thankful he did.

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

I'd heard a rumor earlier today that a moving van hauled all the production equipment from the house this morning. I hope it's true. Do you think that this is the end of filming the children?

Will TLC try a show with Kate alone?

Time to Organize Recap

I haven't watched this show in over a year, so when I was asked to write this recap and saw the title I thought it was a rerun. (Anyone remember an episode where Beth helped Kate get organized? Whatever happened to Beth.....) Sorry, I zoned out. That happened frequently while watching this waste of 30 minutes. But I endured and these are the "exciting" details I picked up on (between naps). Enjoy.

October 5, Time to Organize

Kate has always had a love for organization, but with such a full schedule and a house full of kids, she's had less and less time to organize. With the guidance of an expert, Kate and the children attempt to give the basement some much needed order.

Kate Responds - Interview with Meredith Viera on Monday

Monday morning Kate keeps the drama alive as she is interviewed to respond to Jon's allegations.

How long will the American public care enough to let these two keep airing their dirty laundry? I haven't been watching it and won't be watching this one either.

How Jon and Kate Can Survive and Support the Children Without a TV Show

Since so many of the TV personalities can't see how on earth the Gosselins can support all those kids without exploiting them on TV, shall we tell them how it can be done? Do those commentators/talking heads think every family with eight or more children has a TV show or should automatically deserve one?

Production Halted Part 2

Jon stopped the filming of the children. Will it hold up?

Jon Gosselin Trying to Kill "Kate Plus 8"?

He's Seeking to Keep TV Crews from Videotaping His Kids, According to "The Insider"

(CBS) Is the reality show based on the Gosselin family about to go the way of their marriage? It appears the newly-renamed "Kate Plus 8," featuring Kate Gosselin and the eight Gosselin kids, with minimal participation from Jon Gosselin, may be separated from the airwaves. TLC announced the name change for "Jon & Kate Plus 8" early this week. On "The Early Show" Thursday, Lara Spencer, host of "The Insider," said Jon is apparently attempting to, in effect, shut-down production on the show by denying permission to videotape his children. "'The Insider' can exclusively reveal that Jon Gosselin, though his attorney, Mark J. Heller, is demanding production of the show be halted," Spencer says. "In two letters to TLC lawyers, dated September 29, 2009, Gosselin demands the network cease and desist production and leave his property. To quote one of the letters, Jon's attorney writes, "Effective immediately, no production crews are to enter Jon's family home for any reason. In the event that anyone enters the marital property, Jon Gosselin will notify the local authorities to effectuate police action against any trespassers.' " Spencer adds that Gosselin and his lawyer tell "The Insider' exclusively that Jon and Kate both own the property where the show is being shot. Jon has joint custody of the kids and is able to make decisions about their welfare. He deemed it was not in the best interest of the children's welfare to continue with production of the show." The letter, according to "The Insider," is dated the same day TLC sent out a news release about Jon's participation in the show being minimized and the show being re-named. "Jon found out about the name change the same way we all did -- through The Associated Press," Spencer says. "He and his attorney assert to 'The Insider' they've been in discussions to pull plug on the program and take the kids off the show for weeks prior to (Tuesday's) announcement."


TLC issued this response....

We are aware of Jon Gosselin's recent statements, and remain deeply disappointed at his continued erratic behavior. He and the family were shooting as recently as last Friday, without incident, and his latest comments are grossly inaccurate, without merit and are clearly opportunistic. Despite Jon Gosselin's repeated self destructive and unprofessional actions, he remains under an exclusive contract with TLC. Direct filming of the children has been currently suspended, pending further conversations between both parents.
