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.

Pssst Kate!

Satan called.

He wants you to return to hell. And he wants his forked tail back.

K8: What Happened to 'taking the high road' and 'dealing with this privately'?

Same song, second verse, a little bit louder and a little bit worse.

Please GO AWAY.

Suzanne said...

Yawn... The classy thing to do would be to SAY nothing. The world will continue to go around without ANY of her comments. The fact that she/TLC NEEDS to say something is more evidence of the sinking ship. Keep it up Kate.

CaanadianMom said, "Satan wants his forked tail back."

Satan also wants his forked tongue returned, K8.

P.S. - good one, CaanadianMom. Enjoyed your comment.

I am sure she will bring her tissue and gulp and sob. Who sobs? Don't we all cry?

Freed said...

See, this is the thing...(Spoken like Adrian Monk): I won't watch KHate ANYWHERE. Viera, The V, The Train Wreck, it doesn't matter where the Beast is gonna show her Fugly face, I won't be there. I DON'T WATCH HER PERIOD.
I come here to get all the info! The voice, the face, the attitude, the posture, the mannerisms, ; no it doesn't enrich my life ONE IOTA so I avoid it. Jon may have had to endure IT, but I will not!
Thank God for this site. !

She's the only person I know whose High Road runs through the sewer.

lauren said...

She is probably rehearsing her "act" with Julie May right now. Kate will most likely wear dark blue or black. Her hair won't quite be so "party in the front" so as not to scare viewers. I wonder what her cue will be to start crying.

(insert evil laugh)

Amen, Buckeye. I don't think I can stomach another Viera-kissing-Kate's-ass interview. It's all a sham, and they just all need to go away.

Yep. When K8 said she is 'a high road taker,' I guess all of us should've asked, "Compared to WHAT?"

_______________________________

ITA. Since TLC and/or Kate FEEL THE NEED to say something publicly, the more it is obvious to this poster that the show will be ending soon.

I am pretty sure that the majority of the public is sick and tired of the Gosselins airing their dirty divorce laundry in public which is damaging to their children versus taking their issues in front of a judge.

But now that the FATHER has said it is detrimental to his children, that at ages 5 and 8 it is time to get them off the show especially since the family is divorcing, for the MOTHER to disagree and speak out Monday morning will only be perceived by the PUBLIC - the ones who watch and the ones who do not - that she is desparate to keep the money coming in versus what is in the best interest of the CHILDREN.

Yes Kate, you be sure to show up for that interview and show your true colors. I, for one, won't be watching because I happen to believe that the show is detrimental to your children and there is nothing that you can say to change my mind.

runwithwind said...

Why would anyone care what Kate's response is. She says one thing on interview shows and tries to come off as this "single mom" who is struggling and heartbroken. Then she shows up at a charity fundraiser and completely diss's everyone in sight.

Who cares already????? She is driven around in stretch limos, makes outrageous demands to be treated like a celebrity diva who's only contribution to this life was having a clown car utereus.

Will she and her thunder thighs and her fat porky husband just go away. Don't go away mad, just go away.

Miss said...

Jon and Kate are so Jerry Springer!

Big Flap O' Hair said...

All this volleying back and forth on the talk shows is absolutely mind-boggling. Who conducts a divorce this way? I mean, who DOES that? Guess we know now.

What's next? The President is addressing the nation in a special broadcast from the White House and here comes Kate, shoving her way in past the Secret Service and taking over the microphone because she feels the need to "set the record straight"?

Their incredible one-upsmanship is just beyond imagination!

Anne said...

Would the court PLEASE slap a gag order on these two already?

The 'I sobbed" comment cracks me up every tme I read it. What normal down-to-Earth person says 'I sobbed"? Ah keyword is 'normal'. Doesn't apply to the diva. Maybe Julie makes Kate learn a new word every day so she will sound edumacated.

Big Flap O' Hair said...

*****

I completely agree. And what does it accomplish, anyway? The custody and the filming issues are not going to be decided by the American public. It doesn't matter what 62% of Americans think about who is a better parent. The judge will not be swayed by that.
The judge will decide on what the judge has presented to him/her as solid evidence. So all this jabbering on national TV isn't going the help anybody's case. The judge probably doesn't watch The View or the Today Show or Inside Edition or read People or In Touch anyway, so what's the point in taking all this time away from the children to make each other look bad or stupid.

The ONLY reason for all this talk
circuit is to keep Jon and Kate in the headlines one more week. They just can't function without being
the topic du jour.

Making memories is what Jon and Kate said they were doing - chronicaling their children's lives. Well, they've got some pretty eye popping memories of their youth now, don't they? Mommy and Daddy went on TV to talk about the problems we had at our house. Yeah, those were the good ol' days. We hold those memories deep in our hearts.

bbeau said...

Is it me, or does it seem like its always Meredith Viera doing the interviews with Kate.

Matt Lauer seems to want nothing to do with this couple. A few months back he was speaking with a psychologist or reporter about these two and he was pro kids and it was quite apparent he thought the show should end.

I think he'd ask the tough questions if he interviewed her... then again. TLC has probably requested the he NOT interview her.

ErinKate said...

Matt will grill her, plus Meredith is more like Kate's target audience of strong hard-working moms.They have soooo much in common dontcha know.

8POE's said...

It's pointless to me for her to do interviews if she's not gonna be hammered. She needs to be hammered like a horseshoe just once.

Why can't Ann Curry get the int.? She might just get tough w/her. I wonder what Ann really thinks about it all. Since she's 1/2 asian she just might get tough w/her about the kids.

I'd just like for someone to ask her something difficult. Like ask her why she wants to continue when Jon doesn't. Then when she says the same old tired crap, ask her how the Browns do it. I wish someone would already.

Ask her about spanking Leah, ask her about "watergate", ask her about K&J, ask her about her family. IF she gets hammered instead of pampered, she just might stay the hell of TV. As long as she's a media darling we're stuck w/her.

if anyone remembers on the andy griffith show on one episode, barney had some police information to tell andy and andy said, what is it? barney would say, it's big!
and andy would say something and barney would say it was a special message from Raliegh just for us, the mayberry sheriff's office, and andy would say what is it? and barney would say, it's big!

Kate:

Plastic surgery scar it's big!

EGO it's big!

starbucks habit it's big!

Steve it's big!

Foot in Mouth it's big!

Possum Head it's big!

Showcasing Breasts Today at P.F. Chang's with Blue Top and Sweater Coat and Skirt it's big!

Jon shutting down production! it's big!!!

Tiffany Earrings for Mady and Cara: 300.00 each

Jon shutting down the film production of the Gosselin 8 is:

All we're missing in this ridiculous saga is an appearance to the Maury show to find out the paternity results of the tups. They've hit every other show, so why not?

Melissa said...

Let's start a pool - how many minutes before the fake tears and woe-is-me begins?

I give her three minutes tops.

Michelle said...

funny how she is going back on the Today show. Apparently she missed the clip of them bashing the show and the 2 of them on Friday's show.

I see she called the paps out for the removal of the sign.

she will never learn.

Jaden's Mom said...

I really like Meredith Viera, but she really lets Kate get away with a lot of crap during their interviews. Not to belabor the point, but why doesn't anyone confront her with the facts and figures when she says that the show, the traveling, the Jon-smearing interviews, etc...is all "for the kids"? I'm sure someone, somewhere, knows how much money she is raking in and could attest that doing the show and travling so much isn't necessary for her to generate a liveable income.

I wish Meredith would shred her. I am glad Matt has the dignity and decency not to interview her, but I wish he would, because he wouldn't hold back. Someone needs to flat out tell her she is a diva, and if she does care about her kids, it's not evident at all.

Apparently, when she and Kathy Lee were back to back on "Larry King Live", Kate hung around after her bit to hear what Kathie Lee had to say about her. Kathie Lee's daughter was still in the green room while Kate was there to hear what Kathie had to say...

Well, Kathie Lee said that when the spotlight was clearly killing her family, she got out of it, went home, and did what had to be done to keep her family together. In classy Kate style, she turned to her bodyguard and remarked, "It's called a paycheck,", and was clearly offended by Kathie Lee's pointed remarks.

Maybe Kate will end up on Joy Behar's cable show, where Joy doesn't have to censor herself as much, and she can tell Kate what she really thinks of her.

In a perfect world...

Go Kate! said...

Look how far Kate has come in the past several months. She "put in a screen" and NOW she took down a sign, all by herself. Thats what I call self sufficiant.

enoughalready said...

I bet you - Meredith Viera, Ann Curry, Matt Lauer, Maury Povitch, his wife(Connie Chung), the D.A., The CIA, the FBI, M15, The Kremlin, etc... - all of them will go soft on her - why?

Maybe that roadkill on her head is hiding something......?

But seriously, maybe because she's a half decent looking (eck! ick! cough! yukk! puke!) white woman which takes the TV cameras well esp. with all the teeth jobs, boob jobs, cosmetic surgeries invested in her by TLC.

Brummygirl said...

I have not read all the comments this evening, but I did go on to the Today site to see if there was anywhere I could post an e-mail to Meredith Viera and ask her to be the first one to step up and ask Kate pertinent questions i.e. why would you want to keep putting your children through this etc., I could not find one but found this from Kate's lawyer.

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/33137085/ns/today-today_entertainment/

She stated she still wanted to keep filming with the children...of course she does!!
I can just hear her now...

Kate: "Do I want to keep filming....*pause* yes I do. Is it all for the children *pause*...of course it is"!!
"Do the children love it *pause* yes they do!!"
"Do I have their welfare at my motherly heart? *pause*...of course I do!!"
Reaches for tissue offered from the box coming down on a string!!!

Meanwhile Meredith sits there waiting to ask HER questions!!
Oh how I wish this woman would come up against one honest interviewer!!

She's on AGAIN? said...

She's going on ANOTHER show? For what. Talk about overkill and overexposure. More crying and another pity party for the hundreth time.

Tuesday said...

Control freak kHATE has every step of her life planned by a corporation. Can't even grasp how strange that is.

alsoamomtotwins said...

I'm just crossing my fingers that Meredith actually acts like a journalist this time and asks some real questions.

turtlegirl said...

That is another network down in the gutter-NBC/MSNBC, right along with TLC (IMO). Why are they giving either of them interviews/air time. Don't they know that all of this will forever be available for the children to see?? especially Mady and Cara!
I feel so sorry for those girls. For all those kids.

JTN said...

I would pay cash over the barrel if Meredith would look her straight in the eye and say "Given the ratings of your show of late, do you really think anyone really gives a damn about you anymore or are they just watching the trainwreck?"

Marie France said...

Just to point out - Mady and Cara's birthday is coming up on Thursday, October 8. They will be 9 years old. Think Khate will be there at the KONpound to celebrate their birthday with them? Doubt it. She will be off on another interview or some idiotic event. Disgraceful that her kids are, in fact, her LOWEST priority. It's all about her - fame and attention wh*re.

starsky said...

The more they talk to the press, the lower the rating gets. It's evident but these two just can't stop.

That 10 million viewer episode is just a ONE TIME DEAL. It will never happen again. Once you announce divorce, it's the end of the story. Whether mom or dad remarry someone, it's not the same. It will never be one real happy family. Too many kids have their parents' second marriage to get used to and deal with. It's an awkward situation. It's very difficult for the kids. Also too many Americans have their own divorce to be depressed about. Turd+8 only reminds them unhappy stuff. Pretending that divorce doesn't hurt those kids by showing kids having picnic and playing toys just won't fly.

Scripted PR said...

I can already hear her talking in her breathy, quiet little voice... Poor Miss Kate. She's just working so hard at being a devoted working mom and Jon is trying to ruin everything.

She is without a doubt one of the most clever controlling manipulators I have ever seen.

Go Away Katezilla said...

The interview will go something like this....

"um...um... um.... sniff... sniff... umm.. umm.. umm... um... snifff.... for the kids."

Donna Day said...

Do you think maybe this could all be a part of jon's secret plan?
1. be a man and do the right thing
2. get the kids off the air and take aciton
3. if it beings media attention, then bring it...then stay quiet...and eventually kate will keep talking, talking, talking...if you notice, jon doesn't do white fence interviews anymore

Good one!

Why oh why can't something interesting happen, like her nose growing every time she lies, or her wonky eye twitches so hard it knocks her out of her chair, something, anything, to relieve the lying monotony that is Kate Gosselin. Frightening as I haven't watched an interview with her yet, it's not a hard thing to predict & she'll probably be crying as soon as the interview starts.

I'm so tired of her having to make her rounds & go on & on about nothing remotely honest or remotely based in reality. Lying, lying, lying to exploit her children for the sake of her children. She needs to shut up, stop running her mouth & tend to her children & their needs right now, but that will never happen & none of these media jackals will ever point it out. Just stay home, shut up & deal with it like an adult for once. It'd be so nice if a judge said no more talking to the media until it's all settled. It'd be nice if he made her explain how any of this helped her children & dissected her excuse, telling her why she's wrong. It'll be interesting when she finally does encounter the judge, someone she will find out that she won't be bullying.

However I forsee Kate wanting the trial televised, I see TLC wanting that too, because they believe they will look so good & do so wonderfully well there. Kate is no high road taker,she, like TLC is a freak show maker. Oh yes, Jon has done them such great wrongs, too bad they can't remember who started this mess. Had darling Kate not told Jon she was going to go live his life & he could go live his, this wouldn't be happening right now, karma's a bitch, Kate, a bigger bitch than you or TLC, I suggest you both get used to it, because it won't be leaving until it's run it's course. This woman could drive a saint to drink.

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

lol! the president preempts regular programming & kate preempts the president. her side of the story is just so important. Must squash Jon like a bug, to show all other who dare to rebel what will happen to them, must make him an example. she & TLC have both gotten a little too nuts. They must do such terrible things to Jon that the kids will never grow up & write the books we all know they're going to write.

Well it would be nice if she let those children sit a spell next to the cement pond, oh who does she think she's fooling, even the Beverly hillbillies look like brain surgeons next to her. If I remember correctly they had a penchant for possum pie.


I think he'd ask the tough questions if he interviewed her... then again. TLC has probably requested the he NOT interview her.
=============

She & TLC probably hand out a set of questions that she can be asked &nothing else, you know, like some A-list celebs who have things they will absolutely not talk about, like their families. Why can't she end up on a show where they just happen to have Gloria Alred on to voice her thoughts on the legal part of it all. IF these interviews were made tough on her as they should be, she just might not want to do them.

PJ said...

Maybe Kate will tell the truth about the money. I don't believe the million dollar claim at all. The figures Jon gave didn't add up. 100 episodes at $22,500 is over $2 million alone.

Besides that what else can she say? I am sure she will say the kids are fine with filming - no news there. I am sure she will say TLC has been good to the family. That will be lie but probably how she sees it. And I am sure she will say that Jon never spoke to her about this in person .. trying to elicit sympathy.

nurse2 said...

Nancy Grace is going to interview Jon on one of the shows on Mon. she was a prosecutor and never lost a case,she goes for the jugular to get the truth, she also had twins at the age of 47.
Let's email to give her story about THE REALIST REALITY SHOW

Pray for the kids said...

There is no way TLC would allow any questions that would tell what is really going on. You can tell she is coached about everything. You really can't blame it on the interviewers. They have their *safe* list of questions and comments to read from and that is that. Every one of Kate's interviews is the same as the last. She says nothing at all. The last time she was asked about when Jon left the house she had no clue and stumbled her way around it. I know the everyone here at GWOP would get straight to the truth but TLC is NEVER going to let that happen.

I believe the truth will prevail and I don't think it will take too long if the show does get canceled. There are way too many people out there that have witnessed and perhaps have proof of what has been going on. Let her go ahead and spew garbage. The more she spews now the more she has to answer for when the truth finally comes out. TLC has made MILLIONS off this show and has probably paid thousands to keep quiet. Money talks. Just be patient. Remember this is all about 8 little kids who have no say in all this. Kate will fall and even tho most want to see her fall flat on her lying face, there are 8 little faces to think about and will be hurting even more. Aunt Jodi,Uncle Kevin, all relatives hopefully will be there to pick up the pieces of 8 fragile minds. I pray for those children to find peace and their childhoods.

Please let us not lose focus on what is important. The kids.

Come and Get Your Popcorn said...

Maybe they will switch things up a bit and let Al Roker interview her. He is the only one w/ the nerve to go after anybody. Viera is all fluff. I never thought she would be that way.

call the wambulence said...

The Today Show will just be a platform to appear incredibly hurt that Jon has changed so much that he would do this "TO THE CHILDREN."

I predict she will tearfully regret her children will never know the man she fell in love with.

She will give the appearance of respecting him by being nostalgic about the "old Jon" while her actions (ripping the sign off the gate, refusing to talk to him, sending her lawyer out ahead of her to do the dirty work....)will be grinding Jon into the dust.

crabbygirl said...

The Today Show or any other show will never ask the HARD questions that need to be asked because they know this trainwreck is far from over and they want them to come back again and again!!

pinkdiamond611 said...

If Khate was smart she would allow her lawyer to do all the dirty work. But No, she can't stand that Jon is getting some media attention. She wants to be the only one. Go ahead Khate tell the world how using your kids to make a buck is healthy for them.

junebug said...

I have weened myself off Jon and Kate and have now decided not to watch TLC at all. It is my small way of doing what I can to help the kids. Besides, TLC is going to the monkeys.

My thanks to the moderators for the time and effort it takes to keep this site going.

zoey said...

what can she possibly say to make things right? meredith has to ask "jon wants the kids off the show. he says it is hurting the children"
how can kate respond to that with out sounding like a monster. she cant.
jon wins this round.
if one parent thinks an activity is mentaly hurting the child then you STOP.

stopthemadness said...

Her interview will not be about whether the show is good for the kids other than the scripted response about how it's all for them. It will be about why jon is doing this.

They HAVE to keep this a Kate vs Jon fight. If the attention turns to the children - how this is affecting them - she can only lose.

This will be about Jon's lack of paycheck and his immaturity and his vindictiveness.

I'd like them to ask, Given the show's ratings drop, and Jon's refusal to allow his kids to be filmed, what are your plans for supporting yourself if the show can't go on?

I bet she would admit right out there is no other way, no plan B. Kate will beg for viewers as if the real reason people watch is so they can help her in the way she wants to be helped ie throw money at me. She doesn't know why people ever watched J&K+8 - she's just not wired to think about Other People or what their motives might be, it's only how it affects her.

Anonymous said...

Wow, as a mom of two kids I couldn't imagine putting them through crap for a paycheck...All the show was is to record memories...one day the parents will have to answer for all those "happy" memories. Its time to get real jobs - and be parents. Sometimes doing the right thing (pulling the kids out of the public eye) is not always the easiest decision.

Ohio Buckeye said...

Jaden'sMom said.......re: K8 stating, "It's a paycheck."

So is prostitution.

Just sayin'......

jojow said...

Kate: blah, blah, blah blah blah for the kids blah.

Does Jon's lawyer get to be there?

epiphany said...

these parents are so stupid! they think the networks really care about them? all these interviews they do, are only for $$$$$$$$$$ and nothing else.
lk, view hosts, meredith, et al., don't you know they are all laughing at the gosselin's behind the scenes!
way to go, kate! rip that sign down---now THAT'S MATURE!! lol!!! throw it on the ground like a petulant child...
the only reason dr drew is having a fit is because he was planning a show (in about a decade) just for the gosselin kids....lol...
tlc, go ahead and give KI her new show and leave the kids alone. your network might save a shred of credibility. you have lost me as a viewer.

Merrilee said...

All of this "He Said, She Said" is getting so boring, perhaps it is a good thing!

Maybe everybody everywhere will be so sick of these people that there will be nobody left that is even interested.

I am sure sick of it.

Please Contact Today Show said...

Meredith's site has been closed to new comments.

Please go to the Today "contact us" and leave a short message, asking they quit showing this crap.

If you write something long, it will be deleted without even being glanced at.

Lucy said...

Bravo to Canadian Mom. Well said!! These two "parents" need to stop airing this crap in public. It not only is detrimental to their childrens' well being it is getting as creepy as those women who would bed a boss, with a 20 year girlfriend, like David Letterman! Jon & Kate are, as usual, disgusting fame whores.

THANK YOU for posting this link!

Under CONTACT US I sent an email this morning and in the subject line I addressed it to "Meredith Viera re Kate Gosselin".

I did get an auto reply which said that they do read all emails.

Hopefully Meredith will read this before she sits down with KG!

VillageMom said...

Nancy Grace is just as bad at exploiting children for ratings as Jon and Kate. Her show is under the guise of "helping children" but it is so sensationalized.

Just look at the television screen... her shows look like a living tabloid rag.

Come on, Meredith. Don't let us down.

MomOf4InPA said...

I no longer watch the Today show, and haven't for several years now, as I stopped seeing any new of any real value coming out of that show. I will however dvr the show I think, as there is a new rumor on ROL that Jon has emptied out the joint bank account that Kate pays the bills out of, and left her with just $1,000.00 to her name.

To be honest, I don't believe most of what they say there, but sometimes their pictures (like Kate with the "I never met her before in my life" not-a-nanny Stephanie) tell the real truth, so I have to take this little bit of info with a grain of salt, but I will bet you that Kate makes the sheeple hate Jon even more by telling the world he is just in it for the money, because "look..he took it all from ME!"

sigh

The woman wouldn't know the real truth if it walked up and shaved her nasty hair off.

Momof2 said...

TLC wants to be in on every little sordid detail of this tragedy don't they?

I DO think they know who the weaker character is and it's Kate...this whole time we thought it was Jon. TLC is totally brainwashing Kate and buying her off with money and gifts to do and say whatever they want and she is so far into it she can't see straight. She is a puppet for TLC and Jon is on his way to getting deprogrammed and on the outside trying to get through to his family.

This whole charade is not making Kate look shrewd and smart but very gullible and weak.

I'm sure TLC is bending Kate's ear right now building her up for this big interview and telling her how to respond. We all saw Kate on the View...she has NOTHING to contribute unless she's being force fed...she is clearly not an independent thinker. So much for being a strong woman.

nanasez said...

Will Jon's lawyer be there to give his side "equal time," like her side got on Larry King Live?

Bet not. Why do they let her get away with this kind of crap?

jasmine said...

If Kate was the one to stop the filming, she would be praised for being such a caring mother. Jon is interogated and has to defend himself like he's a criminal.

She's come undone said...

The real question is now long will Merideth Viera continue to play 'dumb' journalist and fail to ask Kate pertinent and searching questions? I just don't think I can stomach to watch this interview so early in the morning. I (like so many of you) can tell you exactly how it will go. I'm afraid it would give me morning sickness and I'm in my 60's!!!

fidosmommy said...

Always trying to find a silver lining, I have decided the more Kate and Jon go on the talk show circuit the better. More people will realize what a couple of boors they are, scrambling desperately to stay in an ever fading spotlight.

The more famous they are (presidents and cabinet members notwithstanding) the less they need their faces in the public eye.
It's those who know they have faded away who keep trying to put themselves out there. Hence shows like "I'm a Celebrity, Get me Out of Here!" with its cast of people we had already forgotten about. And Jon and Kate on the interview circuit. They are really fighting to stay in our
consciousness because it's all they have.

Truly sad. Brought it on themselves, but still so very sad.

Mona said...

I don't think Kate is going to say anything much. I think she is going to go into her turtle mode. The look on her face, the sideways glances, the finger dances, the pregnant pauses, the hissing sounds when she speaks (bessssst for my children) will say it all for her.

"I'm one messed up chick who's trying to convince everyone that I am ridiculously fine and my children are as happy as I am"

Pamela Jaye said...

Ooh, wouldn't it be nice to have Kate on I'm a Celebrity, Gret Me Out of Here! ? It's so fitting, and I have never seen it :-) (and don't plan to - no one I would want to see would sink so low.)

and fitting right in with the theme: a post from Twitter that reminded me of Kate

from @hodgman (the "I'm a PC" guy):
The phrase "15 minutes of fame" has now been famous for 41 years.

ToTheMoonAlice said...

We all know what a farce this interview will be...Kate will lie, be evasive, cry, blame Jon, and intone "all for my kids" like a mantra. We've seen it (and seen it and seen it and seen it!) all before...**yawn**

jamie said...

I am so tired of Jon having to defend himself constantly while Kate can do or say anything without so much as a being questioned on it.
I have always been a big fan of Jon's and feel for him. I can not even imagine how it feels to be in his shoes at this time.
Everyone show he goes on he is made to defend hisself and being made out to be an a**. Again, while Kate gets to go on and cry and bawl and say it is all for my kids which I call BS on.
If it was for your kids you would be home more than 1-2 days a week now wouldn't you.

I sent an email to The Today Show asking that they be fair and have a representative for Jon to answer Kate's allegations.

Email them at TODAY@nbcuni.com

BTW, they have disabled the comment section regarding Kate's appearance.

Momof2 said...
I DO think they know who the weaker character is and it's Kate...this whole time we thought it was Jon. TLC is totally brainwashing Kate and buying her off with money and gifts to do and say whatever they want and she is so far into it she can't see straight.

Momof2, you've nailed it!
Check out Isaac Bonewits' Advanced Bonewits’ Cult Danger Evaluation Frame. TLC does fall under most of his criteria for being a cult. It's really rather scary.

qsforkate said...

The sad thing is that Meridith actually used to be a respected journalist.

What I don't get is so many women supporting a woman who is clearly an abusive spouse. If Jon had treated Kate 1/1000th as bad as she treated him, he'd be in jail no doubt.

Questions I'd like to ask:
1)So, I thought you were taking the high road, why are you here?

2)As you know Jon has decided that filming is bad for the kids. You keep saying that they want to do it. Well, if my kids wanted to eat candy all day, as the parent I'd say no. Why are you letting your kids continue to film?

3)Numerous numerous experts both in and out of the entertainment industry have said just how damaging filming is. If for some reasons your kids beat the odds, and it only harms one or two of them, does that make it still O.K.?

4) Are you planning on renewing your nursing license? What do you plan to do to support your kids when your reality show ends?

5)We've seen you on film being very abusive to your husband. By all accounts, he was the victim of domestic violence at your hands. Are you in counseling?

6)What do you carry in your coffee cup? You always seem to have one, even when the nearest Starbucks is very far away?

Lucy said...

Dlisted reports Jon cleaned out $200,000 from their joint account yesterday leaving only $1,000 in it for Khate's use. I realize that's only chump change for the Gosselins but this just doesn't sound like Jon. Hope it's not true cause it makes Jon look like Khate wants him to look like...grasping & greedy (like her!)

Moira the first said...

Maybe Kate did what my ex did and took one of my paychecks and deposited and then lied about it. Maybe TLC joined her in shenanigans and sent her one check for both of them and she refused to give Jon his share? We'll probably never know the truth. They should be quiet instead of like the jerks who go around complaining to everyone who will listen during a divorce.

str8talk said...

The paps say Jon took the money, but how do they know? Who would tell them - the bank? Why would Jon tell the paps HE took the money? However, couldn't Kate take the money and tell the paps that Jon took it? Something smells fishy, and conveniently sounds like a set-up for the Today bunch brunch on Monday morning.

sayitisntos33 said...

Both Kate and Jon need to shut the hell up and deal with their issues in private, for the sake of the kids.

I am glad Jon got a decent lawyer to hopefully get their kids off the show, but going on national TV with this news is ridiculous. If the lawyers leaked it, it would be one thing, but this is ridiculous. What HUGE egos these two have where they can not consider the well-being of their kids. Completely disgusted.

Nancy Grace is going to interview Jon on one of the shows on Mon. she was a prosecutor and never lost a case,she goes for the jugular to get the truth, she also had twins at the age of 47.
Let's email to give her story about THE REALIST REALITY SHOW
*********************************
I will watch Jon on Nancy Grace Monday, although I would MUCH rather watch Nancy rip into Katie Irene with everything she's got...I think Nancy is one tough chick and would not give Katie Irene a pass, as long as Nancy knew the whole story...

Please Let It Be Matt Lauer said...

Is it publicly stated somewhere that Kste is being interviewed by Meredith Viera? Usually, when a guest is on more than once, they alternate interviewers. How do we know Matt Lauer isn't going to the the one asking the questions?

I hope it's Matt, because he has stated before he thinks the show should end and that the kids are being exploited. If Matt gets a hold of Kate now, I KNOW he'll be tougher than Meredith.

just so sick of it said...

yes, it DOES sound like Jon. Please - somebody here has GOT to see that. Ya, I know .... Kate is - well, all the things that are mentioned here, for sure ... but ... guess what ladies, so is Jon. He's proving it in leaps and bounds every day now.

SaNdY said...

So clear to me now that this whole mess is corporate driven (once again, money talks) ...the TLC guys 'in the suits' control Kate, and also control what show/who will interview her and what questions she will be asked...if the show/interviewer doens't agree, I'm sure the suits threaten to put her on a competitors' show....

Claire said...

It's interesting timing that this "news" comes out one day before Kate's appearance on the Today show.

I guess it IS "all in the timing" on both sides. War games.

enoughalready said...

Its a done deal.

MV gets a list of soft questions.
Khate gets to rehearse her answers.

If at anytime you see her gazing into air, ho and humming, its because she's trying to memorise her lines and answers.

After the interview, they break for a lovefest.

Its nauseating.

Virginia Girl said...

Oh come on everybody, don't ya know she has to "go to work" by being interviewed by Meredith? She's a single mom now, sniff, sniff. (Even though the chef, the yard crew, nanny etc. are not in the picture). Gag!

It's on msnbc.com and says kate found out when she started receiving overdraft notices when paying bills. Also says that Jon defied an order from the court in doing so. Her lawyer is suing and he says her divorce lawyer will be filing papers Monday to find Jon in contempt for going against that court order.

She's also going to cry about all the money Jon took from their joint account leaving her and the kids all but destitute....who leaked the letter to the press? TMZ has it posted.

Well maybe now Kate will talk to Jon

Lucy said...

Boy do these two idiots ever need to shut up and dialogue in private about their divorce events. I for one will not watch TLC nor Yawn and Khate in any situation anymore. It's getting way too malicious and unproductive. War is hell and so is this. God bless our troops ... the ones deserving of our time, care and attention.

fEnEff said...

There is no way Jon took all the money. It's not in his nature. I have a feeling Kate took the money out herself and is trying to blame Jon. I bet if the authorities would check under her bed that they'd find a shoebox full of money. Of check Stevie's house. There are alot of places on Kate's estate where she could hide the money. And, seriously, isn't $1000 enough to live on, Katie Irene? Why do you NEED $200,000? Get real. I'm over you.

And was anybody else offended when Kate tore down JOn's sign and littered when she just threw it on the ground? Batant disregard for the environment.

Hope for Jon said...

Finally said: "It's on msnbc.com and says kate found out when she started receiving overdraft notices when paying bills. Also says that Jon defied an order from the court in doing so."

The incestuousness of the media is rampant. The msnbc story is from People magazine. The earlier People story used RadarOnline as its source. (However, now it appears that Kate's lawyer has been talking directly to People.)

Both People and ROL have been in the bag for Kate. I'll still wait for more of the facts to come out before condemning Jon...

Janine said...

I can't believe how infected the media is...
OK, now on a Sunday the story is 'the bank account was emptied,
K8 hires/pulls expensive L.A. attorney (out of her hair, I suppose)and threatens not Jon, but his attorney, Heller'. The reports are speaking to charges against Heller. I believe if we could EVER just get the honest truth, we would be seeing the kids free from this nightmare... but I think the interesting facts are... K8 responds to empty account with hiring new lawyer (it would seem she had him in place already last week, unless she is just a natural when it comes to hiring out of state attorneys).
I believe there is a REASONABLE answer to all of this, but it feels like a chess move done by a HUGE corporation, on/over the weekend, before a national interview. I don't BELIEVE Jon, or his attorney would ever do something like "steal" money. I can believe they placed it in safe keeping and some oportunistic people are sending the word out. Enough C--P is being printed, believed... It scares me that people are blindly making HUGE assumptions without the facts. It SCARES me that Jon seems muzzled, still... by TLC. It gives more evidence that this needs to end. I feel this will get really UGLY and K8 will go down fighting to keep the show.
(the story said K8 was left $1000 in the account... "it was a Money Market Account, Jointly held, that K8 uses to pay the bills with"
I guess it's her custody this weekend and she is paying the bills, crossing all T's and dotting all i's, taking down signs... making sure everything is under control.
I wish we could just get the truth without the MEGA spin her universe creates.

Janine said...

When was K8 sitting at the table, paying bills? Before PF Changs? after the Concert?
If this was REAL, a bank would call her. WHO on this planet keeps $200,000 in an account to pay the household bills?
This is such a farce and so many (most) people are buying it. I hope Jon can speak to this.

grannyoftwo said...

what would be very, VERY nice to see would be a blank page on here tomorrow, meaning that nobody watched the interview and had nothing to say about Kate at all. That would be very refreshing indeed. Or we could talk about...well the fall leaves changing color...or what we bought at the sales over the weekend...anything but Kate...Please don't watch tomorrow, I am begging you! It is what she wants! And we all kow Kate always gets everything she wants doens't she...do you want her to get everything she wants? I don't. She doesn't deserve it!

M said...

I swear nothing that these two idiots do surprise me any more. It would not surprise me if Kate has amassed huge credit card debt.

Who knows, maybe Jon took the money out of the account to pay some bills off!! Chances are if he does not do that, he won't have the money to pay for them and be stuck with the bills in the divorce settlement. Stranger things have happened. This same thing happened to my brother.

I can believe Jon took the money. BUT the article says that the bank alerted Kate about overdrafts and they told her Jon had taken the money out of the account.

I can believe Jon or his attorney did this. Because if the bank says Jon withdrew the money they had to have the withdrawal slip to prove it. So does Kate if she's taking it to court.

I also can believe that Jon never paid the bills but Kate took care of that.

etownmom2 said...

With all of the fighting, the big winners will be TLC, The Tabloids and all of the lawyers. The children's money will disappear in a flash and when the money is gone so is the power. Unless Jon and Kate sit down without any outside interference (except a trained marriage counselor)and have an honest dialogue and truly put the children first (not just lip service) this train will not only have wrecked but will have crashed and burned - while eight innocents were on board.

Is there any integrity left in journalism at all, any investigative journalism? - it all seems like they all turned into tabloid journalists. . . . just sad.

Not getting MY money said...

I absolutely refuse to ever again watch ANYTHING Gosselin, which will line their pockets, and that's just what I'd be doing by giving them air time ratings. Sorry, not me. Let them find their money from some other unsuspecting followers.
That's why they are both doing the tv circuit parade from station to station and show to show. They know the kids working is coming to an end.

Janine said...

One of the rhetorical questions I ask(ed) was 'who in the world keeps $200,000 in an account that is used for household bill payment?' (and if you have that kind of money, why isn't an accountant managing it?)
In this age of identity theft, instant transfers,ATM machines and fraud... I just don't see a careless mistep like this. I also can't imagine letting a couple of hundred thousand sit around so someone I am having a contentious legal situation with could help themselves to.
It all seems too strange, too bizarre.
It is true that they live an extravagant life... but I am sure they don't need to have that kind of money in the "house" account. I believe K8 has held the purse strings, tightly all of this time. I can't believe she would let this slip by. The statements in the media said... that she kept getting overdraft notices and this leads someone to believe she got them, more than once... why? Why did she get more than one overdraft notice before she saw $200,000 missing?
It doesn't make a bit of sense. My questions are rhetorical and only out of outrage and confusion. This seems strange, planned and like a bad Columbo movie. I know the truth will come out... I don't believe it is as simple as 'Jon took $200,000 and risked his entire future with his kids'

livnluv said...

re: did Jon take money out of their account?

I guess the question is, is Jon listening to his lawyer? If he is and took the money, there must be a good reason and I have to think his lawyer would never advise him to do something detrimental or illegal.

If Jon is Not listening or going against legal advise, shame on him. But I just can't believe he hasn't learned his lesson on that one. He knows he has to follow the rules, written or implied.

The third possibility is that kate or a facsimile thereof took the money, insidiously implied it was Jon, and now TLC is licking their chops at how they can spin this story and create a whole new media frenzy episode.

Or, the press is just spinning their own story.

My vote is behind door number 3.

However it came about, someone is going down as soon as the truth comes out....and the truth WILL come out with hardcopy evidence.

Lucy said...

Etown2mom said: Is there any integrity left in journalism at all, any investigative journalism? - it all seems like they all turned into tabloid journalists. . . . just sad.

I agree and long for the days of Walter Cronkite. But it's not just the journalists. Look at Oprah and her empire of celebrities like Dr. Phil? These people are all money hungry egomaniacs who care only for themselves. Jon said Dr Phil met with them to discuss their brand! Nothing about his concern for their kids. Geez a psychiatric resident could do his whole thesis on the greed of all of these people.

PJ said...

I think Jon took the money out of the account per his new lawyer's suggestion. The lawyer has a history of telling divorcing clients to do that. I hope Jon didn't jump from the frying pan to the fire with this Heller guy. He has a really bad reputation.

Regarding how the 'paps' would know IMO is easy as an anonymous employee within the bank calling the paps and giving them a heads up OR it wouldnt surprise me if 'some one' within Kate's 'inner circle' made the call. That being said. If the funds were in the account specifically to 'pay bills' and Kate was in fact the designated individual/ parent/ party DESIGNATED AND RESPONSIBLE for paying said bills with said funds; why is the account a 'joint' account. One would ASSUME that the term 'bills' applies to mortgage (S), utlities, nanny services etc...however, IMO the use of the word 'bills' is an ambiguous one and could very well apply IN THIS CASE to any thing from personal and travel expenses (for the FAMILY JOB) to 'hush money'. As it stands right now the media is reporting that the joint account was used for KATE to 'pay bills' and Jon emptied the account leaving a $1000 balance. Perhaps Jon and his lawyer have proof that Kate was utilizing the 'bill funds' account for a use other than what the funds were specifically and MUTUALLY allocated for. Perhaps Jon withdrew the funds as an extreme measure to get Kate to 'communicate' and his LAWYER placed the funds in 'trust' knowing full well Kate and her lawyer would retaliate forcing Kate to answer to the inappropriate/misuse spending of funds? Per usual, the media are quick with their reporting of only one side of the story disregarding the fact that there are 'two sides' to every story and the 'truth' lies somewhere in between. The fact that Kate so quickly hired a lawyer that is reportedly notorious for 'keeping details of private lives private' could lead one to ASSUME that there may very well be another side to this 'story'; one that Kate Gosselin is going to great lengths to keep 'private'.

Please is there is anyone out there who can help Jon? The TLC machine is going to eat him alive.

shilohpeace said...

If the court order requires consent of both parties, that would mean that whatever check that Kate writes must be presented to Jon for his approval first. I seriously doubt that Kate would run the checks by Jon each time she wrote one. Maybe this is one potential missing piece of the story. Who knows? It is conjecture at this point. In otherwords, Kate defaulted first.

On another point, Kate is in bed with TLC and apparently TLC wrote a check directly to Kate in the amount of 80K and excluded Jon and Kate put this money into a trust for the kids (or so the media story goes). TLC could help Kate get away with robbing Jon by giving Kate money without including Jon (when Jon should be inclued). Maybe this is the fraud that kate is inflicting upon Jon and Jon decided to fight back with an eye for an eye.
Who knows? But it does make me sad that Jon's attorney has been a true sleazeball in his career. I was so hopeful for Jon. What a disgrace!

shilohpeace said...

The best thing that any celebrity show can do right now is to stop doing any stories on Jon and Kate and the kids whatsoever. Access Hollywood did this in connection with Octomom. I think the ratings would soar if people could watch a gossip show without Jon and Kate's ugly mugs on the screen. Hopefully some celeb show staffer reads this and thinks it is a good idea! Please!!

Robin said...

DRAT foolish Jon just gave Meridith fodder.....makes me furious for sticking up for him for so dam long

dede02 said...

I think this crap about Jon withdrawing $200,000 out of their joint account is a total lie. I have gone to the bank & withdrawn a MUCH smaller account (not often) If the amount was over $5,000, then I had to wait until they contacted my husband. Not just by phone, he had to come to the bank & authorize it. This is just me, but I think there are enough people that know what's going on with Jon & Kate to do the same. (I mean, come on,they are celebrities going through a nasty divorce) This is just my own experience. I really don't see the bank taking that kind of risk.

IAmSoTiredOfItAll said...

Last week after the tsunami hit and Samoa was flooded, the intro on the Today Show was all about the Gosselin's and their nonsense. Hundred of people had lost their lives and thousands were made homeless in a replay of Hurricane Katrina and the biggest lead story for Matt and Meredith was Kate and Jon? Every morning for years I would watch the first 20 minutes of the Today Show, get my local weather and traffic and run out the door to work. That morning I changed the channel and decided right then that the Today Show is not news but is rather crap that is packaged to look like news and I would no longer watch. I am in the age and income category that their advertisers love but no longer will I be seeing their ads. Kate and Jon Gossellin are not news! Flooding, death, refugees, energy crisis, recession, foreclosure, unemployment rate, health care crisis, nuclear armed Iran, genocide, war, etc are all things that are news. Two people exploiting their kids for money and then fighting over their ill-gotten gains is not news.

3rd Rock From The Sun said...

It seems odd that we hear about Jon taking a large sum of money from the joint account today. Tomorrow Kate is suppose to be on the Today show. Was this a set up from Kate? Nothing surprises me about Kate anymore. Jon has a really great lawyer and Kate can't stand it.

But, we all must remember that it's those sweet eight children, that have to hear about this crap too.

Remember when Jon said $100,000 was missing from their bank account? Then it was learned that Kate took it out and then she put it into an account for the kids so he couldn't get it? Maybe Jon did the same thing, that would be nice.

Where did you read this? I haven't seen that there are charges against Heller or that Kate has hired a new lawyer. The article in People, that quotes her lawyer, Singer, says her family lawyer will be going to court tomorrow regarding this.

idontknow said...

I'm not sure about this, but I did have a joint account with a business partner at Bank of America. I went to the bank by myself, withdrew the entire amount and closed the account with no problem.

They didn't ask for anything. Just the account number and my ID.

The only thing they did was report it to the Govt. because it was over 10 grand.

But I hope that Jon isn't doing anything stupid that would further tarnish his name.

Finally said...

I know this is from ROL but still I think Jon should really be aware of any advice he gets from this man.

In a blockbuster legal document uncovered by RadarOnline.com, the Supreme Court
of New York, Appellate Division, suspended Heller from the practice of law for a period of five years.

The decision, handed down on February 8, 1994, came after a lengthy investigation that resulted in Heller's "substantial admissions of professional misconduct."

Heller was admitted to the practice of law in New York in 1969. The case against him was brought in 1993 by the state's Judicial Department when he was charged with an astounding 38 violations of department rules regarding conduct.

The court found "a pattern of misconduct involving misrepresentation, deceit, abusive treatment of clients, fee gouging, neglect and willful failure to return unearned retainers to his clients."


The violations occurred between 1989 and 1992 and involved 12 separate clients, the document asserts.

Heller was ultimately found guilty of 18 violations, and was suspended from 1994 to 1999.

I haven't been able to find anything on Heller's suspension, but at this point I'm beginning to think it's legit. I've found enough on Heller to think Jon could be in deep do-do. Marty Singer is one mean SOB. TLC must have provided Kate with his name... or he sought her out for the big bucks.

I also think there is more to the STORY and we will be hearing about it she's way toooo angry at Jon from the get go, for wanting the divorce in the first place, things that make you go HMMM it maybe a control issue ,for him to do things her way.
Why does she need a new lawyer,things not going her way? Ifeel sorry for the children if it bothers me ,what do you think the children are feeling.

They'll figure out the money thing in court. Its an easy enough thing to prove or dis-prove. The bank records will show who took the money out and how much, and whether it was put in to another account or taken in cash. I have a feeling that Kate and her lawyer aren't lying about this, because if they were its an easy enough thing to prove untrue. Which makes me thing that Jon probably did take the money, either for cars, the Manhattan apartment, trips, or whatever else he's spending tons of money on these days.

Someone needs to take 75% of the show earnings from both Jon and Kate and put it into a trust fund for the kids, with an outside trust accountant watching over it.

Katiedid1806 said...

My husband just called me at work cracking up. He just had to tell me how Khate is on TV right now complaining about how she cannot afford to pay her bills.

Um, Khate? Have you considered not buying shoes for $300/pair+? Or maybe not buying a $1.3mil house you cannot afford since you have no job? Maybe not buying multiple new cars to suit the attire of the day?

And Meredith? Please? Can we not try to suck up and buy into her self-imposed drama story? Wow, does Khate have a fan in Mer. Poor Mer is officially a Sheeple.

could this be it? said...

She cried through the first several minutes. No tissues were offered.

She says Jon took all their money and she can't keep a roof over the kids heads, or food on the table. She has a stack of unpaid bills in her purse she can't mail. Jon took away all their money.

All 8 kids wailed and sobbed over the weekend when she told them they were not able to continue filming for now.

She said unfortunately TLC can't film if Jon doesn't want them to.

Now THAT (the last part) is the news I wanted to hear.

kmshag said...

Unbelieveable... Kate claims that, over the weekend, the kids were "wailing and sobbing" about the halt in filming. I just can't even wrap my mind around the ridiculousness of that statement.

Meredith did ask if maybe it wasn't time to stop the show, and Kate claimed that she "wished she could" except she can't because Jon is "playing to the media"; I've always hated the phrase about the pot calling the kettle black, but this is definitely an appropriate situation to use it. That point notwithstanding, what does Jon playing to the media have to do with stopping the show? More fancy footwork that, if you look more closely, is clumsy and headed towards the end.

Geri said...

Just watched Kate on Today Show.
"Boo hoo blah blah boo hoo"
She can cry all she wants but the show is DONE.

Vanessa said...

UGH!! Just saw it!! What a freakin LIAR!! Boohoo, I can't pay my bills, I can't put food on the table. WTF Merideth!! Why didn't you ask her how much those f%#@$*& shoes cost her??!!
Pleas, Julie, PLEASE join the discussion!!

puhhleeaase said...

She's a contract honorer. She does what she says she will do. Oh really? Like how you and daddy will always be together? She just admitted that she did take money "for safekeeping" and put it back when the arbitrator told her to. She can't pay her bills. She has a stack of bills in her purse she can't drop in the mail. Um, you better have more than $100,000 to your name or you ARE SOL. You said that's your liquid money. Sell some stocks, sell your cars, stop going to the spa, fire your body guard, cash out whatever and pay your bills.

Annies said...

"Call me crazy and I've said it before"...


Ugh! I am so tired of that phrase she uses over and over and over. Next to I am the only one whose main goal is to look out for the welfare of the children.

A lot of crocodile tears of how she has no money to pay the bills (by the ways she said she had the bills in her purse she could not mail) and slamming Jon. She also told Meredith Viera that the kids"sobbed and wailed" when she told them they would not being filming the show".. Yea, I can see her right now..Sorry kids, no more Taylor Swift concerts, trips, clothes, parties, new cars, and on and on...... WAAAAAh.

What a witch. That's all I have to say right now about her Today Show interview. Now go home and take care of your kids...They should follow her around Manhattan to see if she goes shopping with "no Money".

MayDay said...

It was good to see Kate squirm with the Meridith interview. You could see she was uncomfortable especially when she was saying she "needs" the money to pay her bills.Oh what a wicked web we weave when we practice to deceive...

Come and Get Your Popcorn said...

The truth comes out. Kate emptied the bank account first and had to put it back (who knew). She took it out to feed and clothe and house the kids in case Jon decided to empty it, then he did empty it, but only after she did. What a farse. She was dressed to the nine's crying about feeding her kids. She still will not admit that it is best for the kids to get them off the air. My question is what happened to the money from the 2 best sellers that she wrote?

Jen said...

I am in agreeance.

Rachel said...

I think I saw real tears from Kate this morning on the Today show. They came pouring out when she talked about her bank accounts being wiped! I think it showed alot about what's really important to her. Confirmed what we've all suspected was her bottom line. I guess they are bringing her back for a second segment.

organizedblogroll said...

After watching the interview, it sounds like the Gosselin 8 had a WEEKEND FROM HELL.

Kate was probably spewing her hate toward Jon, and telling the kids they were going to lose their home and everything else good in their life because of him.

SHUT DOWN THE SHIT SHOW. EVEN MEREDITH VIERA LOOKED LIKE SHE AGREED!!

Ms.Peach said...

Several points. $231,000 in a checking account?!!!

Poor Kate. I've got no money to feed my kids. (TLC probably has given her money while they battle in court, so you can bet nobody is gonna starve).

The kids wailed and sobbed because they cannot film. (lie!)

She removed money from the account before because she feared Jon would take it. (Maybe Jon feared the same from her.)

Crocodile tears but no tissue to dab the fake tears.

She's sad this morning but will be partying tonight. (with Steve I'm sure).

All in all, she did better than I thought she would, Meredith was ok and the filming has stopped.

That's the bottom line---the filming has STOPPED. Divorces are nasty. Too bad it's all public, but that's what they asked for.

IMO, the TLC line is Jon is emotionally erractic---she'll be going after him for full custody----wait and see!

SAHM said...

OH cry me a river Kate!!

You are no better than Jon-boy by running straight to the media to clear up the "facts". F the facts....What you need to do is shut the cameras down and go finish what YOU started!

Midnight Serenade said...

dede02 said:

I think this crap about Jon withdrawing $200,000 out of their joint account is a total lie.

You can read the entire letter sent by her attorney to his attorney at TMZ.

PJ said...

Jon is so dumb it is frustrating. He is still beong lead by other people and still horrible at choosing those people.

This lawyer he latched on to is a sleeze. Jon doesn't get that Lohan has ahorrible reputation and he should have been wary of anyone he connected with through him.

I don't believe Kate is making up the money story. First, Heller has clients that he has told to do this in the past - and told them to do it to cover his fee. Second, there are public records of who withdrew the money. Kate could not withdraw it and blame it on Jon (it would only take on bank clerk to say Jon never got the money.) Third, the lawyer Kate hired, Singer, would not have sent the letter he sent without proof. His reputation is on the line.

I believe Jon took the money out of the account to pay Heller. He was probably convinced by Heller that the public would be okay with this because Jon is being noble getting the kids off tv. I think that Heller was so into getting his fee that he didn't think about the fact that that it would look awful for him to say that Jon's actions weren't about money on Thursday and have this story break 2 days later.

And I expect that Kate did not violate the conditions of arbitration if she was using the money for household expenses. Usually they write into those agreements that money can be withdrawn for family living expenses. If the overdrafts were to pay for things like clothes for Kate, there might not be as much of a public relations problem. But if checks for the kids school tuition or something like that bounced, Jon will have a heap of trouble on his hands.

I hate that Jon is relying on the Hellers and Lohan. It is not good for him or the kids.

KatesBigFlintstoneToe said...

I just watched the "Today" show, some highlights: lots of "um's",
she used her breathy, little-girl voice, she SOBBED, used the phrase "Im a contract honor'er". She looked at Meredith with such surprise when she suggested maybe its time to "put the show to bed" (yay for Meredith!)

but the BEST part: she said when she told the kids the show had to stop, "there was alot of wailing & SOBBING"......Bitch,Please!

ErinKate said...

Can you believe what happened to these two? Now you know they were never religious people as they claimed. Most faith-oriented people would rely on their faith to get them thru situations like this. Jon and Kater rely on the TV media and their lawyers. Not once do they mention prayer or spiritual guidance. That tells you a lot. Now old Jon has taken Kate's househould expense money. How will she pay the bills? Will she lose her house? Will the kids starve? Boo Hoo. What a bunch of bull. Who actually believes this? How stupid do they think we are? They only have $201,000 (not a penny more) in their joint account? So they run to RadarOnline with their personal financial information? What lawyer would recommend doing that? They are hiding a lot of cash somewhere. I hope no one believes this story

GG said...

If Jon removed the money from their joint account, I suspect that he was within his legal rights. Otherwise, the bank would have refused to do it.
My husband cleaned out our safety deposit box before I had time to think about it. I never did get the deed to the house back--had to get a duplicate issued. My lawyer just told me not to worry about what my husband had done, that the judge would straighten it out when we went to court.

sillyrabbit said...

I caught about 5 miutes of Kate's interview on Today.

If (according to Kate) the Gosselin children were devasted, angry, and crying uncontrollably over the news that filming has ceased, perhaps AS A MOTHER, KATE. should be at HOME on 'her high road' reassuring and comforting HER CHILDREN during this time of emotional distress INSTEAD OF appearing on the Today Show!! Ridiculous!!!!!!

Ms.Peach said...

Kate will be on 2nd half hour of Today too.

NoUse4Kate said...

IAmSoTiredOfItAll said...

Last week after the tsunami hit and Samoa was flooded, the intro on the Today Show was all about the Gosselin's and their nonsense. Hundred of people had lost their lives and thousands were made homeless in a replay of Hurricane Katrina and the biggest lead story for Matt and Meredith was Kate and Jon?

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

Wow, You said a mouth full! What a sad commentary on what is considered news these days. The only thing that should possibly merit news coverage on these two is how they have been charged in child exploitation and how TLC is being held liable and the show is coming to an end and justice is finally being served for the abused kids.

Emma's Mama said...

Miss Said:

"Jon and Kate are so Jerry Springer!"


Well, Kate has the proper upbringing to be eligible for that show!! hahaha

Pilgrim Soul said...

Caught the interview this morning. Kate turned on the waterworks. Now she's a DESTITUTE single mother. Have no idea why Jon took the money (if he did), but I will reserve judgement.

Kate pointedly failed to answer Meredith when she asked if Kate really thought it was a good idea to continue with the show. Kate kept going on about how stopping the show was depriving her family of their income. But seriously, how long did she think the show could last? Eternity? She must have realized that they woudn't be cutie pie toddlers forever? Now she's panicking... The future is here and they didn't plan for it. American does not have a duty to bail them out. They can go on welfare, just like anyone else who needs it... (wait, that is the American taxpayer bailing them out). It's ridiculous. The Gosselins should take lessons from all the other families of multiples or large families that get by just fine. Kate can cry her crocodile tears into her Starbucks for all I care.

Pilgrim Soul said...

Considering all the money they made, I'm sure there are plenty of assets that they can liquidate quickly... Sell some stock, etc... Sell the house! Yes, I know it's a bad market.. But still, can't wait for the day they are back int he Eville house and the McMansion is on the block.

Pilgrim Soul said...

Also, thought it was pretty interesting that Meridith snidely commented that there was so much more she wished she had time to ask Kate Gosselin. I bet she does! Don't we all!

Ava said...

She can't blame it on the new attorney b/c she said on Today that it haas happened since right before she filed for divorce. If that is the case, why did she wait over 2 months to report this or say anything about it? She is a pack of lies.
Even my husband called me after listening to the interview this morning and said he is TIRED of hearing her crya bout bills she has to pay.
I've never seen such fake crying. Mainly b/c SHE can not control everything.

marie said...

From the Today show story, it looks like Kate had taken $100,000 from the account earlier in the year and then fear of getting caught made her put it back. Jon claims that he is owed the $200,000 and more. Kate says there isn't anymore. To be continued . . .

What a sorry set of idiots.

livnluv said...

Just watched the interview. Sorry, but I'm with Jon...I totally despise that woman. She is willing to throw her children into the lion's den for the devil's dollar. paraphrasing, "the kids sobbed over the weekend when told they couldn't film anymore." Please pass the puke bucket...

Suzanne said...

Huh? said...
heaven said...

Please is there is anyone out there who can help Jon? The TLC machine is going to eat him alive.

--

Such drama! He's not being hunted down by the mob. He has a high-powered attorney, a manager, etc. I really don't think he needs the help of random strangers.

-----
Their point was, he has NOT been well represented. TLC cut him loose. Jon is NOT the favored parent, all the tabs/talk media have been given their scripts and marching orders. JON is the fallguy.

It's Too Much said...

Anyone notice that SHE WOULDN'T ANSWER the question- Don't you think it's time to end the show and deal with this privately? Oh no... it's all about 'I'm going to honor my contract', and the kids were mad this weekend, (anyone ask the twins?!)Just too much. What does she want? a telethon? More freebies? Get over yourself, Kate!

she is evil said...

Kate came off as whiny and selfserving on Today show. Fake quivering voice, said agreeance again. The bitch DID hide the $100k and then split it with Jon when caught doing so. Then she emptied the joint account but had to put the money back per the arbitrator! Jon's side said he will be owed more in the future. She is crying that she can't feed her kids. Maybe she should go get a job. Such a douche

Pattypanda said...

UMUMMUMUM - how can anyone listen to her, she still can't speak a full sentence w/o filling in with UMs while she remembers her lines. so she's broke - did she drive her own car, or limo it in w/ the paid body guard?

amy m said...

i am so sorry guys and know you'll don't want to hear this,but after hearing what kate has said this morning i believe jon has lost his freakin mind!! Now i see why she treatd him like another child. Apparently he is a little 'slow',and just blows which ever way the wind does,and is susceptible to any advice. Can the man not think for himself and REALLY do what's right for those kids,AND EVERYONE INVOLVED!?!?! I think part of his issue (despite what he said on larry king) is that he cannot get over his hatred for kate.. but in my opinion i think deep down he is really more frustrated with his own self for being such a LOSER!! I think that he really messed up taking that money,and i have a sinking feeling most of it is gone!!! Mark my words,he will prob be in jail within the next week!! I believe that he thinks (since he has always let her control the finances),that there is more money than there really is,and that maybe she has some hidden. Howevr,i think it is a real dumb move on his part to think this without any proof. What in the world makes him think that this money he took wont matter,and that he will probably win a substantial amnt of money in this divorce!?! Kate is right...he has lost his mind....and he is recieving real bad advice. To me that translates to not only ignorance,but also selfishness on his part. And to think that just 4 days ago he said he wants to work on things peacefully with kate and its time for him to be a man!!! I think the only one he is trying to convince is himself. I have very strong opinions about kate as well,she doesn't get a free pass,but for now noone can argue that he is the 'better parent'....just the way i see it.....oh and mark my words about the $$$!! THIS GUY IS BEING WORKED OVER!! WHAT A MESS!! This needs to get to court quicker not slower!! A judge needs to interfere now!!

TooLittleTooL8 said...

Well I sure didn't watch it but I just read the butt-kissing, hankie-wringing MSNBC report of Kate's appearance this morning - I knew it wasn't going to be good when it started "Fighting back tears, Kate..." Believe me it just got worse from there. The kids "wailed and cried" when she told them filming was suspended, etc. Please, I haven't taken my blood pressure medicine yet today.

Utterly stunning what a train wreck this has become. I don't know how two people could screw things up any worse.

Pattypanda said...

Kates says they were supposed to be in NYC this week, wish Merideth asked about why out of school. She is so full of shit, her lips are brown. She is so like all other single mothers, what about the nannies, house staff, etc. When was the last time she came home from work and had to mow the grass.

season 5? said...

All I learned from that interview is that
TLC and kate CAN'T FILM THE CHILDREN WITHOUT JON's PERMISSION.

Don't want to comment on her other drivel, but are they really so irresponsible as to only have set aside $230,000 "liquid" money to pay their bills, considering their inflated lifestyle expenses?

mom-of-one said...

UGH, I didn't even know she was supposed to be on the Today show and when I turned my TV on this morning, there she was. Puke. She actually just SAID "we were all supposed to be here in New York, visiting the Statue of Liberty and the kids don't understand why they aren't here".

So, you can't take your kids on a trip unless TLC pays for it? I thought you were "can do" Kate now! Were your children going to miss ANOTHER day of school today so you could go see the Statue of Liberty? Granted, maybe an educational trip, but is it worth missing antoher day of school over?

Go away Gosselins.

PattyWithNoPity said...

Woke up to see Kate doing her "gulping, brave woe is me" impersonation..forgot to set sleep timer... Ugggh.
I see it was all talk about Money; how tacky...talk about dirty laundry!

All for the kids.

That dress was straining to restrain the boobage too. Yuck.


Go JON Go
Get those kids off the show....

she is evil said...

Kate is claiming she cannot feed her kids on national tv. Yet she was photographed in an unnecessary limo with an unnecessary bodyguard just days ago. Lives in a million dollar house. Has more vehicles than she needs. I think her diva antics/ showing off will come back to bite her on her large ass. She needs to defrost that frozen cow and use up the juicy juice. Quit saying alarmist things on tv that will freak out your kids and embarrass them. Are we in agreeance on that?

EmilyH said...

I only watched the interview because I'm home with a sick kiddo, otherwise I'm at WORK (not pretend TLC work).

BUT, I just want to say I don't think Meredith Veira has ANY interest in Kate Gosselin, you could practically feel the disdain for being forced to do this interview come through the TV set. She seemed more excited about a piece on tights.

PattyWithNoPity said...

Shoot; forgot to add this!!!
She actually said AGREEANCE again!!
Kate: take $5.00 of that $1,000.00 and buy a dictionary.
You really sound stupid.

jenthebadfish said...

Kate's good! She almost had me believing her lies. As for the Today Show: I am "saddened and confused" that my favorite morning show continues to give these people an outlet to air their dirty laundry. Stick to real news, please!

bandanamomtoo said...

A lot of people DO keep that amount of money in a bill paying account. And $200,000 is usually the max on any account because that's the max of the FDIC guarantee. I'm sure it's not all of their money - just the amount in that one account.

It does make sense that if it's the account used to pay bills, Kate may have been paying the bills, writing checks, etc. then Jon withdrew the money and they started to bounce. When you have that much money in an account you don't check the balance constantly.

On the other hand, I would think that they would have the account hooked up to a savings account for 'over-draft' protection, so I don't think anything REALLY bounced - just that she probably started getting notices that money was being transferred to cover it.

My friend and her husband are going through a divorce and she went to the bank and withdrew 1/2 of the $100,000 in their account - I was there, and the bank didn't bat an eye and did not inform her husband. They don't have to do that - the point is it's a JOINT account. Either person can withdraw without having to consult the other (as far as the bank is concerned).

In my experience, it's not at all unusual for a wealthy family to keep $100-200,000 dollars in a family account for regular expenses.

MediaWhores said...

I love how she says "I cant pay for the roof over our heads".... uhh, you mean the house that TLC paid for? And I love how she cant pay the bills..... you mean no more silver fox watching over you? Gasp!!

MaggieinPA said...

Anne said:
Would the court PLEASE slap a gag order on these two already?

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

I TOTALLY agree! Maybe, just maybe, it would stop some of the madness!

I mean, who's gonna even WANT to interview either one of them if they can't talk about this? Therefore, they'd have more time to ... hmmm ... maybe work out their differences and really "do it for the children" (sob!) and not the cameras.

An added bonus, Little Miss Narcissist might even behave better if she doesn't have an audience (sniff, sniff, sob again!). (I was married to a narcissist for way too many years and he was always a much bigger drama queen when there were people watching)

Will someone puhleez help these kids!!

rural mom said...

The point Kate made in the interview is this $231,000 was from their joint "liquid" account and that there were substantial investments for the kids that can not be touched and from that I gather she also has millions invested for herself that Jon does not have access too, hence the lawyer told him to take the joint account and they'll file for more. But of course Kate is sobbing about a purse full of bills and not being able to keep a roof over their heads or buy food. Nice one kate. Way to keep the tit for tat out of the tabloids.

Lisa said...

I watched the video of Kate's interview and I am a bit confused! She said that because Jon took out 230,000 dollars and left 1000, she is not going to be able to pay her bills or put food on the table. Yet, they had money to buy multiple vehicles, outings, vacations, etc. She makes it sound like all they have is that bank account and that now they are going to be living on the street with no food. Is that amount all they have left from 4 years of this show? Maybe they shouldn't have made all those extravagant purchases if money was limited. Did anyone else find that hard to believe?

Minka's tail said...

I won't summarize the "content" of Kate's interview. It was all the usual stuff about her rings, how the kids love filming, etc. Of course MV asked her puff questions, and of course, nobody from Jon's side was asked to give a rebuttal.

Here's what amazes me. Kate has been, in a very short time, the darling of both the liberals and conservatives. Both sides completely ignore the aspects of her life that doesn't fit with their philosophies.

Conservatives are pro-life and anti-divorce. They would favor a mother staying home, if she could afford it. Kate has been a darling to them because she risked her life and finances by not aborting a few of the tups. She got a lot of love offerings from the religious right. Some stil love her, and they completely ignore her role in the divorce, her treatment of her husband, and her running around leaving the kids with nannies.

Feminist media types tend to be much more enamored of multiples. They would be more pro-choice and have been critical of women risking their lives to save a few fetuses. They also support mothers with careers. When swooning over Kate, they ignore how she got so many kids at once, ignore that she decided to film originallyso she wouldn't have to work, and of course, ignore that she actually has no career other than promoting how pro-life she is that she had all those kids. Both sides just love her for completely different things.

She's incredible. She has united the country better than Obama ever could. I'd almost admire her if she weren't such a female-dog.

One more time said...

"The money in the account is to pay bills, keep a roof over my kids heads and food on their table..." "My purse is full of bills that I can't drop in the mail to pay." Who doesn't use electronic banking these days... Hey Kate, what about the boob job, the $60K SUV, your other residence, the shoes, the clothes - all for the kids? Go away and be a mother quietly.

techymum said...

I have to give her credit - she said plain as day, the income has afforded us this lifestyle, and provided the children with opportunities not otherwise possible. As in right now they should be at the Statue of Liberty. Oh, but they can't because you aren't filming? This, in my opinion, is going to be a big part of these kids problems in the future. They only do these things because of the show, not because they are a family outing.

Note to Kate - it is NOT a child's job to provide income for their family. Take the kids to the Statue of LIberty WITHOUT filming - I think you can afford it.

Tangerine Tanya said...

Oh Boo Hoo Kate,

Both Kate and Jon acted as if the money was like a flowing river. Instead of acting like responsible adults/parents they both squandered the money away from the very beginning. Bad choices from the very get go.

Lisa said...

Another thing...really, how can anyone with half a brain believe what that woman says? There she is, on the Today show, in her expensive clothes, living in a million dollar home, driving a 40,000 vehicle, taking expensive vacations to get away from a full kitchen remodel, and taking daily trips to the spa (or wherever the hell she goes daily)saying that she has a stack of bills in her purse she can't pay. How will she ever keep a roof over her kids' heads and put food on their table? She now has to worry about just getting by like she did when the tups were first born? Didn't we see her pull up to a resteraunt in a stretch limo just a few days ago? Yeah, I can fully relate to her dilemma! Can we say DRAMA QUEEN???

Dunwoody Mom said...

Kate is broke? Didn't she just take Mady and Cara to see Taylor Swift in a private limo and dine at PF Chang's?

mommaof3 said...

I hate to say this and I know every situation is different. We live in PA also and my sister did the same thing to her (soon to be ex) husband and they also had an agreement, but in the end the court said that as long as she didn't spend it lavishly there was really nothing he could do b/c both of their names were on it. I am just saying that I think Jon got away w/it and there is nothing that she can do. But we will just have to see.

Thanks Jon & Kate said...

for disgusting me so much that I am now officially over you guys; no more following your story, no more hoping that you will come to your senses for the sake of your kids, no more coming here to GWOP (which is wonderful, BTW). I can no longer care about your kids more than you do.

The way that you two are carrying on is just shameful, and the two of you are equally at fault. Kate, you are allowing TLC to do everything in its power to destroy your husband and this will not end favorably for you. I hope that the money and the 'fame' is worth it. Despite his many faults, Jon is a good dad, who wants to be involved in his kids lives. They need both of you. IMO, this is unforgivable and I hope that the money and the 'career' are worth it. Jon, you need to grow up and fast. Go somewhere and get yourself together. In your efforts to get yourself off the show, you have made some terrible decisions that are dogging you and putting you in the worst possible light. You are up against a formidable force, and I really think that returning to your Christian faith (legitimately) is the only way that you are going to get things right.

This is a sad, sad situation and I hope that the money that the folks at TLC have made off of destroying this family is well worth it.

A teary-eyed Kate also said that her eight kids were all "wailing and sobbing" when they heard the TLC crew would not be returning to film, something Jon ordered last week after he was fired, claiming he had their interests in mind.

"They love the crew, they love the interaction, they love the events. It is not harmful to them. They are angry," Kate said.

sigh...

Jon Gosselin owes his children $230,000.000 What a freakin' jerk!

etownmom2 said...

Kate explains on Today that TLC always said if any of them didn't want to do the show, it would be done.

Can Do Kate-- I'd like you to meet Can Do Jon.

fedup said...

I am sick of her crying in public.
This was one of many accounts.. Her children will NOT go hungry! Nor will they lose anything...
However, Mommy will have to liquidate some of her cd's and savings...OH POOR GOSSELINS.. Must be hard not having 200k in cash in the bank...
How many of us live on 70 after bills and have bills that are in our purse not paid!!!
Welcome to the real reality Show... What savings does most people have?
Jon did something Kate did first... The difference it was none of our business and should have stayed private!
Oh I forgot.. PR team working hard to trump Jon..and of course keep sheepies watching Nov 2...still feeling sorry for poor Kaitey and the fact she cannot pay her bills!
Here is a suggestion.. Sell their first house! Fire the help! Stop with the organic crap...really who can afford that! Fire any staff you have! Sell the McMansion and you can survive rather well!
But Khate will now sell her story all over the world..AUGH

Kathy L G. must be a GWOPer. She said, let the parents move on and pursue whatever they want. They will be fine. Let her do a talk show. Just get the kids off filming.

Also brought up Kate saying she is she can't pay bills now, but wants to buy a ring with 8 diamonds to replace her wedding band.

Everyone is over this fraud. Everyone is over this couple.

Jon says he's owed much more than the $230k he took from Kate. She did not deny this; just said well, that's all our liquid assets. How much you want to bet she did buy the Baltimore condo?

Watched the Today show interview on Comedy Examiner website. Khate said her kids cried and wailed when told filming was going to stop? Oh puhleeze. Khate did admit being the first to hide money .. to hiding $100,000 from Jon from that very account ... payback is a bitch eh Khate? They both need to stop this media frenzy ... it's disgusting. Oh and Khate. Do yourself a favour. You don't have to lie and appear to be a bi*ch EVERY day of your life!

they're hungry said...

Wait a minute; so funds are tight at the Orphanage and the first thing Kate's gonna cut back on is feeding the kids? Why does that not surprise me?

If you won't go away I will said...

I have the Today Show on every morning as I get things together and get my son out the door to take him to school. It happened that I could see a few minutes of Kate spouting her near English (could someone please buy her a Rosetta Stone course in English? Agreeance is "considered . . . a bastardization of agreement" per ask dictionary.com)

So she did the "Oh, sorry" tearing up routine at somewhere before the two minute mark. When she disappears money it is because she is a saint and is making sure she can buy food for her children but if Jon takes even his salary out (over a period of time) he is evil and taking food right out of the poor little ones' mouths. Kate is a contract honorer. I turned the television off at that point. Lies, lies, and more ungrammatical lies--from both of them. I feel so bad for the children that they have the parents they have but I can't do anything about it. I feel that one of the parents is self-serving to near child-abuse levels but I can do nothing about that. How exactly was it put to the kids that they were not filming any longer? "We are all going to starve and you will never get to see either of your parents again and we will be living in tents and have to eat dirt when we are hungry because of your father?" Something made them "wail" and "sob" times eight and I don't believe it was because anything was explained fully without bias.

If Jon can keep them from being exploited then good for him. I don't like his bullsh** any longer and have never liked the abuser's self absorption. I will object if there is any more blatant child exploitation but otherwise the parents can go on rolling in the mud as much as they want. It is a spectacle I won't be watching any longer. I truly am so totally over this whole mess.

Clap, clap, clap. Great performance, Khate. Most of the idiots watching will believe you.

Jon and his lawyer look like idiots at best and heartless bastards at worst.

Wow. I watched the Kate interview on the Today Show online. I hate to say it but she looked credible, again had on rockin' shoes and a cute dress, only made up two words and, gasp!, I found myself actually feeling just the teeniest bit sorry for her. Anyone who doesn't know the back story is going to really, really feel sorry for her.

Jon wanting to shut down the down the show is completely lost in the interview and the focus is on him taking the money. And Kate states that he took a bunch of money right before she filed for divorce. Remember when she said Jon did something that forced her to file? Now we know what.

Jon did clean out their bank account and the quote from his attorney is just plain laughable. The attorney basically says, "Yep, he took it and he's due even more." This is the brilliant attorney who was disbarred and unable to practice law for five years. Jon sure has a knack for taking bad advice. This time it could land him in jail.

Now Jon's attorney and Kate's attorney will each make a pile of money in their fight over putting the money back. By the time it's returned I'm sure it will be a much smaller sum.

Brilliant Jon, just brilliant!

Oh, please ... I found Kate's appearance on the Today show just pathetic. How melodramatic can she get:

1. The kids were "wailing" and "sobbing" when told they wouldn't be filming. If true, I'd like to know how she presented that tidbit of information to them to get such a reaction.

2. She has a "stack of bills" she can't pay. Why not turn them over to TLC and let them bail her out.

3. A few months ago she took $100,000 out of the account “ so I could buy my kids food if needed.” Just how much can grapes, crackers, yogurt, and Juicy Juice cost?

I’m so tired of her crocodile tears and drama-queen antics.

Huh? said...
heaven said...

Please is there is anyone out there who can help Jon? The TLC machine is going to eat him alive.

Such drama! He's not being hunted down by the mob. He has a high-powered attorney, a manager, etc. I really don't think he needs the help of random strangers.

She's 100% right. He needs A LOT of good solid advice which he seems not to be getting. He is being outmanuevered at every turn. He comes off looking like a dumbass and/or a heartless bastard no matter what he tries to do.

Oh Kate - In one breath "I have a purse full of bills that I can't put in the mail".....next breath "I'm thinking about getting an 8 diamond ring with a pearl to replace my wedding ring"......

Poor Kate....

"I can't sleep at night and I can't pay my bills."

See, Khate and I DO have something in common. . . Only my situation is real and hers is drama for the sheeple.
