I must be kinda slow but I don't understand why NBC is affiliating itself with TLC?? Khate is not a star like Angelina Jolie so why the 1 hour interview by a Today show reporter/host? Is TLC paying NBC to promote Khate and why would NBC want to alienate so many of its own viewers by doing so? TLC and Khate's quest for fame reminds me of creeping ivy ... it grows and grows and you just can't stop it. Now it's creeping into NBC. What next?

SeriouslySerious said...

Aaaaaaaaarg! I don't understand why NBC is involved either. The most maddening is how she can possess this kind of power. It only feeds her amazing ego. Why is it that we as humans reward this behavior? Not all of us but it is obvious TLC is allowing this.

angie said...

I don't want to watch this but I can't turn my head from this train wreck! It's all going to be about poor Kate, blah blah blah with Natalie putting on her best pity face. UGH barf. I like Natalie Morales but she needs someone to interview her that might ask some REAL questions, if anyone cares anymore!

YUCK said...

Makes me sick that NBC is giving her time. I used to like them. It will be the biggest joke of an hour, all lies.

Gotta be a Joke! said...

Seriously, I am waiting for someone to say April Fools or Trick as in trick or treat about this family. It is so unbelievable that so many people can be so blinded by money, lies and stupidity!

Money. It's the economy. Wharever will get a lagging network some attention (read: money).

HW said...

It would have been more appropriate if they'd aired the interview tonight - on Halloween.

Kate lies so much it is starting to scare me.

So, since this is affiliated with NBC does that mean the Today Show will also be promoting it on Monday? I don't understand the connection or the desire for a news journalist (Natalie Morales) to do this type of show. I won't be watching. It is incredible to me that anyone will give this woman air time. She has run out of her 15 minutes of fame. GO AWAY!!!!!!!!!

What next?" ------------------------------- Logically, we all know what SHOULD be next...TLC should just fold it up,cut their losses and head on home. Unfortunately, logic left town a long time ago with TLC's judgement calls. What the hell do they see in Kate that they just feel the need to keep her making the rounds? What do they hope to gain out of any of this? There ARE far more talented prospects out there. Just why TLC? Could it be vengeance now because of Jon flexing his parental muscle? TLC just likes a good fight ,I suppose?I don't even want to speculate-it's a waste of my time. However, I am just wondering what it's going to take to make this whole mess fade into obscurity?
That basically is the extent of my interest in this ridiculous never-ending saga. In the meantime, I feel like I'm losing my mind knowing so much about the Gosselin's personal business...yeah, their kids are just going to love growing up with all the "love" Kate has in store for them. Scary, IMO. lol, I just had a vision of Kate Gosselin as "The Colossal Woman" going from town to town ripping the roofs off of buildings looking for Jon..."Hellooooo, over here Jon...YOU can't leave your kids JON!! (looking at the cameraman,"I swear") I guess if you saw the movie, you would think it was funny? No? ok,I AM losing my mind..lol

GoPoshGo said...

Natalie A-morales.

The people who interview Kate are not journalists. They are "talking heads" willing to do anything for ratings/money. Hypocrites and ho's, the lot of them. And a disgrace to the real journalists of the past who would have seen it as their professional obligation to call BS when they see it.

Bottom line: Contemporary news shows compete for ratings like any other show on TV. So, they'll stoop to all levels of disgrace to garner ratings in order to line their pockets. How sad that the "news" industry has become so commercial that its boundaries can't be differentiated from "entertainment."

my9cats said...

Sorry but I have better things to do with my time like feed the cats and clean their pans.

Didn't Kate write a book to tell us her story? The only version of Kate's story I'd be interested in is the TRUTHFUL version, which we all know is notgonnahappen!!!

I am thinking that NBC may not be alienating any of its viewers. Maybe it's time to consider that Kate is famous, no matter what the reason for it, and she sells.

I have decided that to think Kate can control all the tabloids, online sites, is so influential in famous circles, and even with TLC, is giving her way too much credit (power).

Rather she is what is America is buying right now. And many venues are selling her.

"Kate's Story"?

WHO CARES?

Natalie Morales: hang your head in shame.

lisa k. said...

How many times is she going to tell this story?? Its seems to me she is in overkill now...
I can't wait to see how many times she will say...its for the kids, everything I do is for my kids...stop it!

fedup said...

Is this a test? Is TLC and NBC testing to see what kind of rating this woman can achieve?
Are they testing to see if they do not put the kids with her what will happen?
I would love NO one to tune in... for them to get "sheepies" only.. we know that is 1.2 million at best now... and for them to realize that this woman cannot hold a show! Well, maybe a side show!!! Kate and her amazing liter!!

1momski said...

The pictures of Natalie interviewing Kate are sickening. She looks like she adores Kate, all smiles and she is positively glowing. Yuck. Another one bites the dust(another person that I used to respect,that is)

yeaisaidthat said...

So what happens AFTER Kate tells her 'story' only to find out that no body gives a damn. Then what?

Corinne said...

History, herstory.

SaNdY said...

Seems to me every time Katie Irene is on TV, whether it be Jon & Kate Plus 8, Larry King, The View, etc...we are subjected to 'Kate: Her Story' Here's a brief synopsis: 'Everything I do is for my kids, 30 weeks bedrest, no reduction of embryos, not enough help or money, wanted to make memories and 'life experiences', who are we to say no, etc, etc, ad nauseum....the title should be: 'Kate: The Same Old Boring Story That Everyone Has Heard Too Many Times' Enough already!

Exhausted said...

It is just bizarre that Kate can keep bobbing and weaving from the dagger every time it comes. Why are there famous people like Heather Mills or Naomi Campbell whom everyone knows is difficult and unlikable and that ugliness they exhibit colors their overall public image; yet, it seems that the majority of the media takes Kate and lets her play the long-suffering super mom role without showing the flaws associated with that fabricated image?

Heidi and Spencer are seen as jokes and media whores, Octomom is seen as insane and out there for attention, and even Jon is seen as a big joke, but Kate keeps getting special treatment as though she is this remarkable woman when she is worse than all these others. Why does the media call a spade a spade with Speidi but not with Kate?

Is it really just about having a super publicist? If that's the case, than everyone should hire Kate's. This woman's work must be endless. She could make moonshine into Dom Perignon. But when did publicists end up with so much power? It's as though truth is no longer cut and dry but up for grabs if you can keep hammering away at a public image. I just want this sham to be exposed across the boards. I will be happy when she is never allowed to say she takes the high road at another interview or pretend she's organized and efficient when she really has more free time than people without kids.

Here, here! Well said. Add Natalie Morales to the long line of those who should be doing The Walk of Shame.

Short and to the point. Love it.

AMD said...

If Monday's show was titled "Kate: The Facts", perhaps we could expect a more in-depth, tougher interview. However, "Kate: Her Story" just implies more of the same spin by Kate that we've all heard before, over and over.

Shari said...

(One of)my pet peeves about Natalie Morales that will actually PAY OFF this time is that she has a horrible habit of interrupting someone she's interviewing and the whole thing comes across flubbed up. So, here's to Natalie and her sub-standard interviewing skills....let's hope she does her job as usual.

(We know for sure she won't get real questions like Jon did with Chris Kuomo).

Anad that didn't take anywhere near an hour!

Sidney said...

Does anybody believe Jon really wrote his own "apology?"

I wonder who did write it? Does he have a new attorney by now?

sean said...

What is there left to tell? I mean really both her and Jon have repeated their stories over and over. Please just get divorced and go away. Please.

Pamela Jaye said...

wait, isn't Kate "the one who stays home, cooks dinner, and doesn' talk to the press"?

or was that last week?

Jen said...

I just feel for Mrs. Morales. She probably didn't have much of a choice in doing the interview, and on top of that she had to spend the day interviewing this delusional woman.

I'm sure when we see the episode up on youtube we'll be able to see her with a forced smile through the whole thing.

And who else bets she probably is getting a lot of grief from her coworkers...

Vanessa said...

Who knows? Maybe Nancy Morales was a fan at one time, like many of us and has now seen the light.
Possibly SHE will ask the burning questions we've all been asking on this blog? One can only hope :)

KatesBigFlintstoneToe said...

I just saw a picture of Kate at the CA Womens Conference, sitting at a table with her fake smile holding up the "Eight Little Faces" book & thought, OMG, her story is so old now & boring...who would buy that book now?

Kate, IT'S OVER..go home & ignore your kids!

This made me laugh so hard. Creeping Ivy is so difficult to get rid of but the product professionals use to get rid of it is called CONFRONT. Oh the irony!

You are making me laugh too. Couldn't agree with you more about the lack of logic TLC happily trots out for all to see. I'm pretty sure that TLC rents it's office space in Willie Wonka's chocolate factory.

Kate Gosselin as "The Colossal Woman" going from town to town ripping the roofs off of buildings looking for Jon..."Hellooooo, over here Jon...YOU can't leave your kids JON!!
------------------------

she wouldn't have to go to all that effort, she'd have better hearing being that big, she could follow his horrendously horrendous loud breathing because you know he just does it to drive her round the bend.

earth child said...

re: Kate and tv exposure. I was channel surfing in the middle of the night & caught a celebrity program that Questioned Kate's statement that with the years of tv behind her that she could do a movie, cartoon voice over. The three presenters were incredulous that Kate could believe that without acting training she could step in. I also heard some of the same on other programs.

I believe the love affair is coming to an end. I know, I know we have all waited for Kate's ego to overcome. It has. I am looking forward to upcoming appearances.

Hee-hee. I would also like to add...

Rosie5 said...

Since it has been reported that she told Jon ,I don't know why I married you, I wonder what she might have to say about this, if anything, or will it be the same lie we have all heard before, love at first sight (maybe it was love at first sight with her winky eye!)

a rose is a rose said...

One question I'd like to ask all these networks that feel the "need" to get her on their shows to "tell her story"
Just who the hell IS this woman?
Some nobody, from nowhere, that accomplished NOTHING in her life.
What's up with this? Are they all nuts,or am I missing something?

tallblonde said...

This is pure speculation - but what if NBC with Natalie Morales DID start out to do an "in-depth interview" with Kate (which - as we know was cursed from the beginning, as Kate has no depth) - and the restrictions of what Kate would talk about - or could be questioned about - were so many - that the interview came off as pure fluff. NBC, once the interview was previewed for approval, said Pullllleeeeze & decided not to broadcast it on the NBC network.

TLC, having never met a supposed ratings booster it didn't love, said "Well heck NBC - we need something to show for our dying in the dirt Gosselins - let's talk money!"

So - NBC gets some of their costs to produce the fluff reimbursed - TLC has enough video to make a show out of it - and Natalie Morales - poor Natalie Morales - is caught with this poop on her resume.

stopthemadness said...

I do wonder what in the WORLD there could be to ask Kate about that would take this long. Her relationship with her family, how good this is for the kids, her abusiveness to Jon, her stealing of the money so there was nothing left but this $300k -where the hell did it all go? - she will lie about all of it with a straight muppet face, eyes wide in "don't you believe me?" innocence. They won't press her on it and they won't have experts on disagreeing - this isn't Nancy Grace.It will be kate telling HER version. If you can stomach that.

The why NBC is doing this or why TLC is doing it is simple. They have an exclusive contract with the person getting the 5th most clicks in the world, right now. What would you do? Work it. Work it til it's over. It never happens that a little cable network gets this kind of viewership. It's perfect for Kate because they will treat her like a STAR whereas in order for that to happen elsewhere sh'ed actually have ot be good at something.

If Kate's stupid enough to think they actually have plans for her beyond working her celebrity or notoriety til it's done, she'll continue on with her arrogance until the day when they drop her because she's a piece of gum with all the flavor gone. THAT is the point where it'll be interesting - when she realizes she's not inspirational to anyone, she has nothing interesting to say - people watched because they enjoyed the horrible interplay with Jon or thought the kids were cute. NOW what. What it is that she thinks she can do besides beat the dead horse of her Jon & Kate fame? Can she go on dancing with the stars? Not if Hawaii was any indication. She can't cook. She isn't well read or witty, her idea of being funny and camera worthy is to put a popcorn box on her head. I can't imagine her lasting on Survivor, they'd vote her off in an intsant. It's going to have to be reality tv because she's not an actress. She's not an author. She's not aligned with any kind of charity other than crying poor mouth for herself.

When the news about the divorce comes out and that's over I think she will fade very quickly and TLC after having to hold their nose and treat her like a diva will have very little reason to put up with that further once she's not getting the viewers or clicks. I look for her to move from PA and try to shove the kids back into work, just watch. "When they get a job" they can have a ring. Indeed.

THEM having a job to support mommy will be her focus. The house that was theirs for forever will go the way of the ceremony that meant they'd be together for always. But for now she gets an hour to cry and beg and lie, we've all seen it before.

Kate actually has the whole of the TLC PR department behind her and the backing of Eileen O'Neil. O'Neil has a lot of connections in network TV, also, she's active in feminist/alternative family causes.

She's using Kate, because Kate is allowing her. It's sort of like a prostitute and her john. Both get what they want out of the deal, but at the end, they both walk away nasty and smelling like yesterdays rotten fish.

SpeidiWho said...

So: KHate's story. Then I assume they will be interviewing her parents, siblings, former classmates, and the like? Cuz usually, that is what "they" do when doing a story on someone's life...
Oh, and I am proud to say that I STILL do not know who "Speidi" is! And please, protect that bubble of bliss for me. Thanks

JFaye said...

Kate/TLC must have one hell of a publicity rep to get her on all these shows. It seems like all media these days are under one or two corporate umbrellas so I wonder what the TLC and NBC connection is. I bet there is one.

shilohpeace said...

Anyone want to take a guess at how many "ummms" kate will say tomorrow night. Lord knows if I wasn't blocking watching that wench say the same old crap in her robot mode again, I would actually spend my time counting the umms. My guess is that there are at least 5 ummms in every sentence (and that is the short sentences).... Kate, please go away so I don't see your mug everywhere I go.

BTW if anyone tells you that they have no idea who Kate gosselin is, you must call them a liar. I have had about 15 people tell me they have no idea who the gosselins are... these people must not shop for groceries, hey? The only way they could not know is if they had all of their shopping delivered and they never went out of the house. still.. it is sad that most people know these a-holes...Jon and Kate...poor kids!!

The Kate Brand = D.O.A. said...

Adding Natalie Morales to this overdone mix is supposed to add credibility and relatability to the very broken Kate brand.

The networks clearly think viewers are low wattage.

Might just as well have given us another one of Kate's Super Special, Super Professional Self Interviews. (She likes those best anyway, because she has 100% of the camera's attention.)


Kate has zero credibility at this juncture. THE POPE HIMSELF interviewing Kate (camera tastefully placed inside the confessional might've been a good touch, TLC) would fail to convince that Kate even comprehends the concept of honesty and integrity.

Kate & TLC: Desperation is neither pretty nor entertaining. Cut your losses and give this whole Kate Is Great ploy the burial it deserved SEASONS ago.

Yes, Kate, I used the word, "SEASONS". (I'm also breathing too loudly JUST TO HONK YOU OFF.) Deal with it, Babe.

Applause. Great post. Especially
the analogy using Ms. O'Neill and Kate as prostitute and her john. Though it's impossible to tell which is which at this point.

Re: Ms. O'Neill being active in
feminist causes: by putting forth an example like Kate Gosselin Ms. O'Neill demeans the whole idea of independence, professionalism, and
the potential of women.

I vote her OUT of any movement that is genuinely pro-women. She does not deserve a place in such an honorable endeavor.

Kate Sucks said...

In my opinion, Kate has hooked up with a major person with TLC who has connections. Which is why she gets such favorable reviews, as well as so many major interviews.

Otherwise, why in God's name would she get so much favorable publicity, in spite of FACTS to the contrary.

Not Watching said...

It's painfully obvious that TLC and Kate are doing everything in their power to keep the gravy train going, despite Jon no longer letting her film the children. However, this will bring short term income to Kate, but I doubt it will do much in the long run.

Seriously, how many times is the average person going to make a point to watch this woman's fake cries, fake soft spoken voice while she denies an affair with her bodyguard, whines about how hard it is being a single mom, reminds of us what a loser her soon to be ex husband really is, and how much she really does LOVE fame? You know there will be no questions of substance nor anything that will make Kate look bad asked.

If you are going to watch, please do not play the drinking game and take a drink every time Kate says "I" or "me". You'll be drunk in 5 minutes or less.

My mom and I used to faithfully watch the show, then we started watching every now and then out of interest. Since it's turned into "The Kate Show", we refuse to turn the channel to TLC when she's on. We refuse to let the cable company have record that we're watching this train wreck.

Now, if Kate manages to get a tv career without exploiting her kids OR her husband and gets a job because she has a talent and deserves it, then this will be news. I wouldn't hold my breath for that though. Trust me, Kate isn't worth dying over because that woman couldn't get a job based on talent and skill alone.

Doing some research after watching a crime drama show, unrelated to Khate OC, I came across this little site discussing narcissists and divorce. This quote LEPT off the page.

This is actually a path I have travelled and Ann Bradley hit the nail on the head.

It seemed to me that it's difficult to hurt the FEELINGS of a narcissist. It's more like you wound their EGO, and, to a narcissist, this is a bigger crime and you WILL be punished any way they can.

Thank you for a great post, Anne Marie. If you have a minute, can you please provide the source - I'd like to read more about it? Thanks.

Lucy said...

I must be getting old but I remember a time when you never admitted reading, or especially buying, rags like National Enquirer! It was like one of those things you "hid" under your bed like dust and nudie magazines. Now media has become one huge greedy machine that hypes people like Khate, Jon, Hailey, the Khardasians ... oh the list goes on and on...in all its tabloid glory. True journalists are few and far between like Walter Cronkite, or Huntley and Brinkley. Today they all sell their ethics for the opportunity to reap the almighty dollar. Jon and Khate saw their opportunity and became just as greedy. Opportunity knocks only once, but temptation leans on the doorbell. Their children were just little walking ATMs to these parents.

jon&kateoverload said...

What in the world can she possibly say that she hasn't already said on her show or the hundreds of interviews she's already done? Hopefully the rest of the world is as bored with this whole saga as I am...

chanie said...

I honestly think they are dregging the bottom of the barrel, I think the public is so sick of both Jon and Kate that no one cares anymore.
Could it be that TLC has invested so much money into Kate that they are desperately trying to keep her name afloat? Could they have signed her to do a new series so they want her face splashed all over? I seriously hope that we never have to hear of either of them again, let them drift back into oblivion where they came from. Losers, both losers with a capital L.

Im_in_PR said...

TLC makes a ton of money off the kids and Kate, so they are willing to let Kate keep selling herself and ruining her kids life if they get to profit from it.
And they do.

Falling away........ said...

We see Kate and Jon as losers, but they see themselves as talented winners. Kate has said she will never give up. Jon has no idea what to say or do. I think that the saddest losers of all are the beautiful children. They don't know what a warm family feels like. How is it that just now Kate is seeing that the kids are acting out? They have been beating each other up for years! Not to mention the screaming!
Does anyone else notice that the kids are being pushed into the forgotten background? What will become of these children? Aren't they the reason we all started posting? I fear for them. Kate and Jon will be too busy to bother with them.

bbeau said...

Is the Natalie Morales interview being aired on TLC or NBC tomorrow night. I'm confused.

Still laughing, even after I spit coffee on my monitor. Hee haw.

Hey, Where's Kate?? said...

I find it very interesting that there haven't been any Kate stories on any of the usual sites for the past couple of days; I was certain tht we would be deluged with all things Kate leading up to the big show on Monday, but maybe, just maybe, TLC is realizing that Ms. Kate is thisclose to being overexposed.

In contrast, there has been a Jon story (or two) every where you look. IMO, this just confirms that TLC is trying to make Jon look as bad as possible (not that he needs any help). I guess they think that the dumb public will read all the Jon/Hailey/Rabbi Schmuley stories and fall for the sly venom that Kate will be sending Jon's way on Monday night (TLC and Kate: see, despite what you've seen the past 5 seasons, Jon is bad and Kate is good - me: whatevs!).

I am so sick of this whole freak show and sincerely hope it is almost over. TLC, please stop subjecting us to the Gosselin's foolishness! ENOUGH!!!

Whine Me A River, Kate said...

Flipping thru channels just now I had the misfortune of catching a flash of a promo for "Kate's Story".

I see they are trying a 'softened' approach with the softer (less "angry lesbian" as Kathy Griffith calls it) hairdo.

I'll not be watching, but my best guess is that it'll be just another variation on a theme. Best described earlier on this site as 'defiant whining'. The Poor Me, My Life is So Hard, BUT look at me!! I'm Not Going to Let Anything Stop Me. I once changed a screen! I am miraculously no longer afraid to try new things. I am a MOTHER. I refused to cull the litter. A 'high road taker'. And my personal fave: "Scriptures get me through" (now pass the love offering basket).

Natalie will demonstrate a similar dichotomy of tone, at once pretending to be serious and prepared to ask the hardball questions, while tilting her head sympathetically as Kate delivers her soap opera script.

SPARE ME.

Canadian Mom said...

I have a *feeling* BIG news will be tomorrow morning....

Remember Gloria Allred spoke about a 'big' announcement coming soon...

Maybe that will convert/change even more perceptions of Kate as sheeple watch her on her little on-hour love fest...

I can dream, can't I?

The same applies to ANYONE who tries to stand up to a Narcissist, disagree with them, or expose who they are.

A Narcissist THRIVES on the fight because it's attention seeking behavior but you'll eventually become disposable to them. They'll then move on and continue to only surround themselves with people who never question their behavior and they'll proceed to play the martyr at every mention of your name.

Jon's going to need to really get his head together for this battle with a Narcissist because he's going to need all the help he can get. Right now he's in the throes of it and he's making stupid mistakes. He needs to pour all of his focus into what's best for his children because they're about to become her next dispensable item on her ever growing list of people who have 'wronged' her.

Is the Natalie Morales interview being aired on TLC or NBC tomorrow night. I'm confused.

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

It's on TLC. They pimped out NBC to do a "credible" Kate interview for them.

hmm said...

I can see it now

I was on bed rest for 30 weeks.
Im doing it alone
I choose the high road
The kids are fine
I cry alot

These two say its all for the kids-if it were, they would not be trash talking each other to anyone-tv magazine who would listen.

One day ,the kids will be old enough to google and understand what went on and I will bet this TRASH TALK (for the sake of interviews and fees) will divide the family..

Americas favorite FOOLS

hmmm.. said...

They continued to pretend, just for the camera even after Jon moved out, moved downstairs where ever.. How can this be called a documentary?

Some real interviewer needs to ask about the love donations and the contract Jon claims Kate gave him

I also believe that Kate and all her movements are controlled by TLC. She is their puppet and in exchange she gets the money and fawning she desires. Too bad the kids came as a package deal.

Shari said, "The same applies to ANYONE who tries to stand up to a Narcissist, disagree with them, or expose who they are. It doesn't matter how you're related, you will become Enemy #1 and endure a mind blowing battle. A Narcissist THRIVES on the fight because it's attention seeking behavior but you'll eventually become disposable to them. They'll then move on and continue to only surround themselves with people who never question their behavior and they'll proceed to play the martyr at every mention of your name.

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

This is one of the best, most insightful posts I've read yet. Thank you for helping people understand the incredible pain eventually, inevitably caused by extreme narcissists.

It is especially true that narcissists tend to have an uncanny ability for emotional button pushing. It's actually a payoff to the narcissist to get others to react/stand up to them - this gives them the attention they seek and feels to them like they have, once again, succeeded in maintaining control. You react: Score One For The Narcissist.

Trying to remain optimistic, maybe the one silver lining in the cloud that is Gosselin is that Kate may serve to increase awareness and recognition of narcissistic behavior when it rears its ugly head.

Neena said...

You can bet your Ugg boots that this interview will be edited and presented only in a way to make Kate look good and to garner for pity on this poor broken single mom.

If they ( TLC ) are planning on doing a show with only Kate, there is no way they would allow her to be interviewed in a way that will make her look even worse than she already does.

Get ready folks. This WILL be a nauseating event, full of lies and contradiction ala Kate. Get your barf buckets ready.

Bingo. The Narcissist motto should be: Love me; Hate me; but DO NOT ignore me. Indifference is much more effective when battling a Narcissist. It took me years to learn that lesson. Thankfully, my battle wasn't in full view of the public eye.

Sassypaws said...

As always, I will not be watching Monday night. Baltimore Sun Critic, David Zurawick (Z on TV) has graciously offered to watch the show for us and report. I plan to take him up on his offer.

Here is David Zurawick's offer posted at http://weblogs.baltimoresun.com/entertainment/zontv/2009/10/kate_gosselin_natalie_morales_1.html :

"Because I respect the commenters (sic) here so much, I will tell you that I have very low expectations for this Monday mishmash of a show -- and I think NBC News is crazy for risking its credibility with such shady character as Kate. and desperate channel as TLC these days. But let's see how it plays. And you don't have to watch. I will watch, so that you all can have a life -- and then you can comment and watch bits on YouTube so that your heads don't explode like mine. Ha. Z"

I Want Nobu! (Ugh) said...

"Kate's Story"
(and she's sticking to it)

Like the commedienne, Wanda Sykes says in her standup act, "Stick with your lie!"

We can expect Kate to do exactly that.

I'm not willing to waste an hour of my life's precious time being lied to.

Will watch for GWoP's recap.

Sissy said...

Why does Kate think she is so amazing because everything she does is for her kids?

Isn't that what mothers do?

For pete's sake, grow up, shut up, take care of the kids you do it all for!

Jane in California said...

I have no doubt this will be another softball interview. The host will pretend to ask penetrating questions, but she'll never follow up on any of Kate's answers, nor point out the inaccuracies Kate will spew. She'll look all serious and "journalistic" then lob easy questions at her. It will be a complete white wash and waste of time. I predict Kate will go through a box of Kleenex and stress how Jon has "taken away" a marvelous opportunity for the minor children to keep working away to support the family. And the host won't even blink an eye nor question why children should work to support Kate and TLC. Total garbage.

Can't See Sheep said...

BUY/sell said...
Maybe it's time to consider that Kate is famous, no matter what the reason for it, and she sells.
------------------

It's as though truth is no longer cut and dry but up for grabs if you can keep hammering away at a public image.
----------------

It's seems like truth no longer has any value. Only what sells has value.

I'm waiting for kate to pee & for TLC to bottle it & try to market it as fine perfume.

Can't See Sheep said...

Rather she is what is America is buying right now. And many venues are selling her.
------------------

America, North America, needs to start shopping elsewhere immediately!

Exhausted said...

It is just bizarre that Kate can keep bobbing and weaving from the dagger every time it comes.
----------------------

For the love of Pete, throw more than one at her next time!

Baker said...

Kate will poor on the waterworks, as usual. Why don't they interview someone interesting? Someone actually making a difference in the world? Someone that we actually want to watch? It will be the same old story...fertility drugs, bed rest for 30 weeks, we have eight kids...duh. Tell us something we don't know, will ya?

DLCF said...

People we'd love to see interview Kate:

Matt Lauer (she'd be all flirty and cute with him because dude IS adorable, and then he'd bring out the Today show psychologists and blast her off her chair)

Joel McHale (has made it very clear that she's one big joke and does so with a sparkle of glee in his eyes)

A properly-prepped and well-researched Oprah (circa 2005-2006) would DESTROY Kate. Remember when she took down James Frey?

Lucy said...

ROL has a snippet of tonight's show and, as expected, Khate is boo hooing, dabbing her eyes and stating her "circle" of friends (she has any other than her boy toy Steve?) is very small. She says she can't trust anyone anymore and life is soooo very sad for her. OMG grow up and go home to tend your kiddies! I hope they get low ratings and stop this freak show of Khate pities Khate.

KateDramaQueen said...

OMG - I'm a true crime buff and when TLC runs the 48 Hours marathon, I have to watch.

I can NOT believe the promos they had running about Kate's Story - the dramatic music, the slo-mo shots the voice over of an 'exclusive television event'....I actually burst out laughing. This thing is so out of touch. Think of the things going on in the world - think of the everyday things most families fact, then compare that to the dramatic promos. It is a joke!

Who, in their right mind, is gonna say to themselves, 'Ah, THIS time Kate is going to come clean. THIS is the interview where she will finally tell the truth.' That woman wouldn't know the truth if it bit her on the arse. She's a laughing stock. She's delusional. I couldn't care less what her story is because I'm intelligent, I have eyes and I already have her figured out. She's a narcisstic, greedy, self-absorbed b*tch who will stomp on anyone who gets in her way. Why would I subject myself to watching that?

TLC is clueless.

She's..um...RUINED!! said...

OH NO!! I just watched NBC's promo clip this morning....lordy bee!
Kate is really crying...um...oops...meant SOBBING in this one...this is going to be a real...um...cryfest.
Get ready, folks!!

I am going to count the 'um's'....
Someone else can count the 'I do it all for my kids'...that is...um...way to much-ish to ask ...um...only one person to...um..do...

(guess MY kids won't get..um...dinner....since I have to...um...watch KATE...heck, I can..um...tell the kids...um...I do it all...um...for them-ish....)

She's..um..RUINED said...

Forgot to..um..mention...in this morning's clip, Kate says she is upset that 'some' people have sold her out for money....and she can no longer trust them..... HOW DOES SHE THINK HER OWN KIDS FEEL????

What a dumb B****.

For The Moment? said...

gherkin said...
So, since this is affiliated with NBC does that mean the Today Show will also be promoting it on Monday?
-------

They have been promoting it heavily on the Today show, showing clips. They must have gotten her some of those drops, because she actually had liquid coming from her eyes this time, what with sobbing and all.

I just don't get it...these people don't care about what has happened to Jon and the kids in all this, it is just all about her. They are determined to turn her into the next Britney Spears, oh yeah I forgot she can't dance (or she didn't) on Ellen.

For The Moment? said...

I did hear one new thing, from the Today show, when Natalie asked about how things were with her family, Kate was absolutely brilliant....she said she was famous in her family for telling her mother she had too many kids (5) and that her mother reminded of that when she ended up w/ 8. Que laugh from Natalie. End of question. That was a great dance around. I think she has been in training for this for quite some time.

kateisalostcause said...

She says she can't trust anyone anymore and life is soooo very sad for her. OMG grow up and go home to tend your kiddies!

So Kate's life is soooo very sad .
What the hell does she expect viewers to do about it? I absolutely agree with the above poster. Time for Kate to GROW UP and GO HOME and be a mother to your eight children instead of seeking validation from a camera lens!

Twice as Nice said...

I saw the short clip on The Today Show. First of all, we all know it will be all fluff and she won't admit to anything but there is one thing I want you to look for~~~ I didn't notice those two lines Kate has in between her eye brows and I also thought her forehead looked tight. Anyone think even though she is a distraught mom thinking only of her childen, she may have found time to have some botox done? Just wondering.

If Kate is treated by the public anywhere close to how Hailey is treated by the public, it would be a very lonely way to live.

Hailey cried that people point and stare and call her "homewrecker."

I am glad Hailey left Jon. She needs to leave the country for a few years so she can get her life back.

Kate needs to change her hair do, her clothes, her shoes, her attitude, her SELF. If she tries, she CAN "go back." It would eventually become less and less harsh out there for her too.

The Today show should be ashamed for keeping this alive.

gherkin said...

The promo on the Today Show of tonight's show was laughable. Natalie starts out by saying how Jon and Kate can't get out of the spotlight. Hello....it is shows like the Today Show that are keeping them there.

And with Kate, it is always about money. She not only said she couldn't trust people, but had to comment on how people "cash in" on her, blah, blah. What does she think she is doing to her kids???? Exactly the same thing.

For The Moment? said...

I noticed that about the forehead thing, too, she does look different. Her eyebrows are almost to the top of her head and there is very little movement in her face. Do they train people on TV to not move their faces?

Paging Lisa Ling said...

The only person who has dared ask Kate any hard questions is Lisa Ling... of course, she was shut down. Not that I think Lisa would take the job... but if they really wanted to do an interview with her, they'd hire Lisa. Not some pseudo-journalists like Natalie and Meridith. (Both have lost all journalistic credibility in my book!)

Wonder how these Kate-fawners are going to react when they report on the first Gosselin kid who O.D.s... :(

Uggggh. I pity to poor recapper of tonight's episode.

Shari said...

This isn't an 'NBC Special Report' about "Kate's Story." This is an episode of Jon & Kate + 8 (minus Jon & the 8) with a cameo appearance by Natalie Morales. Since when do NBC Special Reports appear on another network? Give me a break. *Flush* Now we can watch Natalie Morales swirl down the drain with Kate.....

SandyW said...

Just read that Kate got a speeding ticket last week. I wonder whose fault that was. Perhaps next week's show will let her explain why she was speeding with the kids in the car. Perhaps she was daydreaming she was Princess Di again.

SafetyTrain said...

Jon and Kate - the most gullible buffoons out there. People/media organizations wander into their lives and tell them to jump and they ask "How high, in what position, what should I wear, and how much money will you give me to do it?" They don't have a brain cell between them. If only Shakespeare were alive to turn these two into a comedic play. You couldn't make this crap up.

debbiejo said...

For all we know...Natalie did ask tough questions which TLC has splashed all over their editing floor!

Concerned for 8 said...

So I just clicked on the msn home page and Kate's mug is plastered on there with a caption saying "the kids are paying the ultimate price" Didn't have to wait until tonite to hear her crap being spewed!

Lonely Is As Lonely Does said...

Kate is lonely, has no friends.

Jon is lonely, has no friends.

Ugh...what's next? Togetherness?

kate_in_cali said...

I sent this email to TODAY this morning:

I am very disappointed that your organization has continued to be a platform for Kate Gosselin to continue to speak her untruths and push her brand. I realize that today journalism has changed a lot to keep up with today's celebrity obsessed culture so things that are dysfunctional and really none of the public's business get air time. ( I mean, really, are you bettering the world by letting Kate speak her drivel to us? How does that help society in ANY way? Kate's story has been out since day 1 of Jon & Kate Plus 8 come on the air.) But it does disturb me greatly that it has become so obvious that it is completely biased - stories slanted to whoever is willing to pay the most to have their side heard. Connections must run deep between NBC and TLC to have what I thought were rational adults sit there and give credence to Kate Gosselin and her lies. She can't pay her bills?!?! What was that Meredith?!?! Kids working to provide a lifestyle for their parents is OK? There was opportunity to ask her real questions but all she got was fluff.

I will NOT be watching Natalie Morales do a softball interview with Kate. I would have had a lot more interest and respect for Natalie if she would have done her research, gone to PA and talked to the many, many families and friends who gave money, time and love to the Gosselins and have been pushed out of the way as Kate has continued her climb to the top. Now THAT would be some good journalism; uncovering the real behind the scenes experiences from a knowing community. But since we know that isn't happening, I can pretty well guess that Kate will say life is so hard, she does it all for the kids, the show was good for them, etc. etc. Same song, second verse. Waste of time. Why you would choose to get involved I simply don't understand. I will not be looking to NBC any more as a source of fair, truthful news coverage.

Sincerely,

Kate *****

Yep! Exactly who I was going to say we need. Like you said, though, doubt Lisa would be that interested. She's one of the few actual journalists in the country at the moment and is probably quite busy covering REAL news stories.

Vanessa said...

DebbieJo, Natalie Morales didn't ask any tough questions that ended up on the cutting room floor :)
On the Today show this morning, Natalie and Meredith were discussing how hard this must be on Khate and that she must truly be suffering. It guess "It's called a paycheck" in everyone's eyes because I truly believe these two have a different opinion but are not allowed to voice them, ESPECIALLY Meredith.

Just My Few Canadian Cents said...

Anyone studying PR should take a good, long look at Kate Gosselin. While there is nothing brilliant about her, the manner in which her image is sold to the public is.
Instead of having to account for how she's treated and alienated her family and volunteers, she cries that she cannot trust anybody. Instead of having to account and come clean about how she's treated Jodi and Kevin, she accuses them of selling her out.
She deflects attention from her duplicitous behaviour by crying that she cannot sleep at night.
Wow, what a pity party, but any sympathy sent her way is highly misguided.
She jumped headfirst into fertility treatments despite knowing the risks. She sought out a reality show with her children. She mistreated Jon during her marriage. She is not alone. She has eight wonderful children who amazingly weathered a complicated pregnancy and NICU without any of the devastating side effects. She has much help and you can't cry about the lifestyle of a single mother when you have a lot of help, manicured hands and a toned physique. She is no victim, but it's amazing how her handlers spin her into one.

Given that NBC and TLC will farm out the best snippets/clips of tonight's interview to boost ratings and interest...well, if the clips shown so far (disclosure: haven't seen them, but read about them on this site) are the "best" or "juiciest" tidbits of the interview, insomniacs will be well served by it. Those with hypertension, probably not so much.
I realize that Gloria Allred is a controversial and colourful character as well, but I am interested in how she will intervene in this ugly, pathetic mess.

Jane in California said...

golden bear said...

I read the baltimore sun article as suggested above. Then saw the ellen interview. what really struck me was when she was talking about the new ring she wants, she said the ring will symbolize "me and the kids forever" together. Well didn't she tell them, just last year, that she and thier dad would be together forever, almost exact words and tone, when they renewed vows in hawaii. that would freak me out if i were a child of the family. also in the interview Kate was always talking about herself. in my opinion, ellen was trying to get her to see how ridiculous and hurtful it is to have such grand illusions about oneself. kate at one point says that 19 cars were following her and ellen says "I cannot image". I think this was sarcastic and ellen was trying to get kate to relate to her and see that this fame is all ridiculous and you can move on and away from it. but kate did not get it.

I thought the same thing about Barbara Walters...she looked so nice and adoring of Kate when she had her on the show (because she knew it would get ratings). THEN a few weeks later she says how Kate should've thought about how to support her kids without the show before she had them. That was a complete turnaround.

I have a feeling Natalie may do the same. She is all nicey nicey to Kate's face but then down the road will say how she really feel.

These interviewers will do whatever they have to do to gain money and ratings. Sick sick sick!

Matt Lauer would not be quite as delicate as Meredith and other show hosts have been.

He was filmed once in a conversation about the Gosselins and he was totally disgusted and angered with what they have done to their kids.

Why doesn't any host give the other side of the story -- like Matt would. Please?

Not a fan of either said...

Just read, "Kate breaks down during interview." Yawn. It's the same breaking down she's done on other interviews, the same overdone makeup, the same dressed to the nines, the same sad face, the same fake tears, the same questions, and me throwing up is the same. Why don't they just let her interview herself. Could she do it? Yes she could.

I just watched the clip from whatever show it is that Meredith Viera hosts. I was amazed to hear that they way Kate is debunking the "Kate Loves Steve" rumors is by stating that what makes her "most furious" is that JON started those rumors to the tabloids.

That is insane!! Those rumors were out there long before Jon was ever even asked about them. They were discussed in every internet forum nationwide that covers the Gosselins or reality TV, and then TV in general as the story spread. And that is PRE tabloids.

All those rumors were based on photos that were released showing how close physically she and Steve had become in what was supposedly a "working" relationship.

They were also based on the way she started wearing extremely revealing clothing for her time spent with Steve. The mini skirts, hooker heels and low cut tops. People were also making remarks about them when photos of them exchanging smiles and knowing glances turned up.

A blind man could have seen those rumors coming and they weren't based on anything Jon said. They were based on what people saw with their own eyes.

I am totally disgusted at the promo for tonight's show with Kate Gosselin. It looks as though once more, she is being thrown soft questions which she is prepared for.
We have heard this woman's spin on the truth for months now, she lies with conviction. I feel she made a fool of Meredith Vieria when stating she was left with $1000 to feed her children, yet goes shopping directly afterwards. So many instances to prove that Kate Gosselin is all about herself.
I am truly surprised that N.B.C. would risk their credibility on an interview which is totally biased. Do you realise you are enabling a woman intent on exploiting her children?
For you to gain any credibility try interviewing Kate with a more agressive reporter who is willing to see both sides of the coin and just how narcissistic this woman is.
There are many people who feel as I do and this will not help your ratings N.B.C.

I will say one good thing about this whole Gosselin mess is discovering Z's great weblog! He's one of the few people in the media that has been honest about this circus show, and I've become a big fan of his because of that. I wish he had interviewed Kate instead!

Arrested Development said...

Read the quote about Kate, as a child, telling her mom that 5 kids were 'too many'....so even back then Little Miss Sunshine wanted all the attention. Lordybe, I'll be she was a real bucket of chuckles to raise.

laura linger said...

KatyKat:

I hope your little boy gets well soon!

********************
I won't be watching. When it's being broadcast, I think I will clean out my cats' litter boxes...and even then, I will be shoveling less shit than Queen Katie Irene will.

Whatever, you're over, go away now.

Shari said...

Golden Bear said: she said the ring will symbolize "me and the kids forever" together. Well didn't she tell them, just last year, that she and their dad would be together forever, almost exact words and tone, when they renewed vows in Hawaii. that would freak me out if i were a child of the family.
_____________________________________
I would imagine it would give them some hope for a light at the end of the tunnel to freedom from her self-serving behavior.

In regards to the speeding ticket~ I was under the impression that 'Celebrities' get out of those....oh, yeah...CELEBRITIES do. "That will be $95 plus court costs Ms. Gosselin. Go wait in line behind the other nobodies at the window please."

GoPoshGo said...

TLC is posting "deleted" scenes from tonight's interview. So far it's the RING, the PAPS, the WIG, blah blah blah. Heard it, heard it, and heard it. Hopefully they deleted these scenes because they plan on showing something NEW. It's mind-boggling how much mileage Kate has gotten out of the same worn out stories. If these clips are a sign of things to come, tonight's interview is going to be one annoying snooze-fest.

stopthemadness said...

Good Lord, I saw what she was wearing and her make up - she looks like my six year old when she got into mommy's make up. Everything is so ludicrous and over the top. I do feel kind of sorry for her, if she lets them do whatever they want to her and thinks she looks nice.
She looked 100 times better just normal, pre teeth pre boobs pre botox pre dead possum carefully balanced on her head pre Too Much Jewelry.

She looks like a little kid dressing up the way they think a grown up or a movie star would. It's weird. She has no sense of personal style. I almost want to think her make up people or whoever did her face and hair, are playing a little trick on her.

Mean.

HereComesTheAmazingCrapFest said...

Oh, waaah! Kate can't trust people? They sold her out?

Just WHAT did she expect in her chosen field? There are a couple Texan saying I love and Katie would do well to pay attention and take notes:

Lay down with dogs, and you'll get up with fleas.

Hang with thieves, and you'll hang with thieves.

Surely she had some concept that life in the spotlight was a dirty business. Give me a break if she's trying to convince me that this all came as a complete shock to her. Hellsbells, I'M naive, but you've got to be a special kind of stupid not to know that life in showbiz is life in the snakepit. Come on, Kate, get off this victim thing. You are where you are by your OWN choosing. No one to blame but yourself, Katie, my sweet.

How much sense does it make that this life she has chosen, the life that has brought her so much pain and disillusion, is the very life she is clawing and biting to HANG ON TO? Hello??

And spare me the 'we can't go back' chorus. This is absolutely nonsensical. She WISHES she could count on this life forevermore. The life that is sooo difficult and so very painful. Uh huh. Sure.

goawayfools said...

she's..um..ruined, I volunteer to count the number of times Kate says "I do it all for my kids" or variations thereof tonight. But I must watch the Saints on Monday night football, so I'll give my report sometime tomorrow after the YouTube clip is up. Anyone out there wanna volunteer to count the number of times and creative ways The High Road Taker bashes poor, confused, messed up Jon? The guy needs a (platonic) hug right about now.

I too follow Z. He is great and funny! I also said I wish he would interview Kate!!!

Hambone said...

I've said it before and I'll say it again.

Kate doesn't have a FREAKING CLUE what it means to be going through something so incredibly difficult. He little "poor me" interviews are so selfish and self centered, it's sickening.

My little 5 year old friend is battling a brain tumor and is on her 4th round of chemo. She Trick or Treated pulled in a wagon with a puke bucket in tow and an NG tube up her nose. Mom is worn to a nub and now her helpers ( dad and sister ) have the flu, so she has to do everything BY HERSELF, incuding taking care of K's brother and sister and new puppy ( which, by the way they plan on KEEPING because even though it is extra work, they are crazy about their daughter and making her happy. They don't care if it means extra work for them ).

Kate needs to read the book "Notes Left Behind"...another story of a little girl who battled a terminal brain tumor and how difficult it was for her family. Maybe, just maybe, she will stop whining about paparazzi and money and start appreciating and caring about her own kids.

BTW, my little friend's story will be shown on an upcoming episode of Dr. Phil...about pediatric brain cancer. He and Robin went to their home last week to film since K is too sick to travel. An amazing story of dedication, love and hope shown by caring parents. This story can teach the Gosselins a thing or two...because they are both totally clueless and selfish.

Yuck! said...

She cries because she doesn't like where her selfish decisions have brought her.

She has not one ounce of remorse for being so awful.

Fake tears.

There are always consequences to our actions. We can choose to behave better and she hasn't. All she does is cry because she is alone. If you won't let people be apart of your life if they don't obey you, your circle of friends shrink.

She did it to herself.

Don't feel bad for her.

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

So sorry to hear about your little friend, Ham. Sounds like she's part of a wonderful family and support network. I bet the puppy is doing wonders to keep her spirits up!! Will keep her in my thoughts.

As for the Greedlings learning anything from your friend's situation, you said it best: they are clueless and selfish. A narcissist like Kate is incapable of seeing beyond her own wants and needs. She'd probably be annoyed that Dr. Phil is giving the little girl more attention than he gave Kate when they appeared together on The View. I believe she is THAT self-absorbed.

Case in point: She'll being hogging the airwaves for an entire hour this evening. There is so much good she could use that time for: talk about child health issues (she IS a nurse, isn't she?); discuss the pros and cons of fertility treatments; advocate for any number of groups less fortunate than herself. Instead, what is the topic that Kate will discuss for SIXTY EXCRUCIATING MINUTES????? Kate.

The woman is incapable of empathy. Unless, of course, it's for herself.

Again, my best wishes for that sweet little girl.

Teresa said...

"I am totally disgusted at the promo for tonight's show with Kate Gosselin. It looks as though once more, she is being thrown soft questions which she is prepared for."

Yup...If l had my way, l'd ask Carl Bernstein or Bob Woodward to interview Khate. They brought down President Nixon and his administration and exposed their lies, they can certainly bring down Ms. Gosselin. We will never see a pair of investional reporters of their ilk again.

1momski said...

Of course Kate is crying, will someone please buy her that ring!

anotherthing... said...

This show will be an hours worth of different varriations of:

"Jon ruined everything"
"I do EVERYTHING i do for my kids"
"This is so hard/its so hard to be me"
"No one understands how hard i have it being a single mom"
"my kids are my world"

Barf. Seriously.

My guess on overall break down of air time:

40% "I..." and "um..."
20% dabbing non-existant tears and doing the fake-sniffles
15% speaking in code (thanks Ellen) about how awful Jon is
15% talking about how hard it is to be her (due to paps/single mom etc)
5% completely side-stepping certain questions entirely/ pretending things arent said/talking about random unrelated junk
5% answering edited and pre-approved questions that no one cares about

Double Barf.

LOL!!

Yes, THE CHILDREN need that ring. At 9 & 5, I'm sure they, too, are 'so into symbolism'. And why WOULDN'T they believe it this time when Mommy says, "we'll be together forever"?

Touching. Cue the melodramatic music....

Keepyourlies2yourself said...

Did they or did they have a Judge tell them to "keep it private"...
What is wrong with these people!!!!!
Oh wait she is talking to her "fans" so I guess that is as private as she gets.. Hope the Judge hangs her and Jon out to dry... I thought ignoring a Judge is illegal!!!

Go ahead, Kate: pull the tears and tissues schtick with someone who's going to call B.S. when she sees it.

Without ACTUAL VIDEO proof those dear children were plucked from her womb, I refuse to believe she is their *mother*!

NO 'MOTHER' is so cold....

not K8's bestest friend said...

I just watched the video on the link with the hilarious bingo card. If I hadn't watched the show and knew nothing of this family I would feel very sorry for her. She cried real tears saying she can't sleep. They showed a clip of her on the Today show talking about Jon leaving her with only a thousand dollars and another clip of her playing with the kids. But since I did watch the show and I know this woman's game, I feel nothing but sick because she is still out there trying to sell her version of the truth.

Brummygirl said...

Hambone, so sorry to hear about your little friend. It really makes me sad to hear of children suffering like this. Prayers for your friend and her family.

Not buying her lies said...

Natalie Morales is cheaper. NBC didn't want the interview on their station. Pathetic last hope interview. Not legitimate. FAKE!

Pattypanda said...

Anotherthing - you are so on. She should try living like the real folks, unemployed since January, husband lost job - both professionals. Two kids in college, future son in law in Iraq. Her life is just so horrible, which pair of $500 shoes to buy tomorrow. Her kids are going to hate her for years.

Pattypanda said...

I'm not watching, but I sure will look forward to Dr. Glass' interpretation of all her deceptions. She already called out the non existent tears in the previews NBC released earlier today.

TUNDRA said...

Kate got a speeding ticket in Adams County which is near the Maryland stateline.

It happened on Thursday, October 29th around 10:00 a.m.

TMZ says all the kids were with her and she was driving a black SUV.

Forgive me if already asked and answered but what were they all doing that far from home on a school day? Were they coming back from Maryland or heading that way?

Angie said...

Haven't been here in a while and haven't been keeping up with the Gosselins as of late, but I tuned in to this Kate story and within 3 minutes I called BS. This woman is unbelievable. Nothing but lies.

All fake said...

Let's pretend that this is Kate's story.

For 2 seconds let's talk about her childhood. She is over 30 years old. Before the show was over half of her life, yet in this special it was 1/10 of the story.

goawayJandK said...

When you get your numbers, please post them. I have decided to reward myself with 1 Junior Mint for each of K8's predictable responses.

Oh, and I will send YOU some Junior Mints for suffering through the epi on YT!

Megan said...

Question re: naps for kids

Is it normal for 5 year olds to take daily naps? ala 'we told the little kids after their nap then they wanted a snack'


I'm genuinely wondering as I don't have any kids (only my 2 dogs).

Lucy said...

Morales is a D-list TV infotainer who has attached herself like a barnacle to D-lister Kate. The mediocre Morales is trying to raise her profile. Kate is trying to repair her reputation. Ain't gonna work!!!

These two losers deserve each other. A perfect coupling.

Michelle said...

Let the hating begin. Can't wait to read all these comments!!!

iheartmyhubby said...

I just tuned in to the TLC/NBC special and from what I can see, there are a lot of really long pauses of Kate crying and wiping away tears. It kinda looked like she was using that time to ponder what to say next, like she was at a loss for words.

Overall, there is nothing really new that she hasn't said before, but I have only been watching for like 10 minutes.

Nerissa said...

So I've watched all of maybe 5 minutes while flipping from others shows. 1. Kate blatantly dances around the truth about her family - who saw her for the con she was. She pretends that they had a simple differing of opinion and completely rips on her brother.
2. Kate acts like she is martyr going through a divorce as if she was the only woman ever to have those feelings of aloneness after losing a partner. Please get over yourself.
3. My favorite - she claims she does the majority of the parenting. No, Kate I think that would be the nannies.

My Point said...

On this interview, Kate said that in her family growing up as one of 5 kids, she was "the forgotten middle child". There's her problem in part. It's not the middle kid who gets forgotten. In a family of 5, the 4th is the forgotten child and the middle kid is the one causing hell for the entire family to endure. Upsets, demands for attention, ceaseless acting out, ignoring rules, thinking they know better than even their parents.

This interview is clearly meant to spin a few issues presently causing K+8 problems:-

1. Investigation into kids filming. Lot of questions on that. Kate adamant that kids are fine with it.

2. Who ended the marriage? Trying to deflect blame, a lie "it was mutual". Not so according to Jon.

3. Speaking well of Jon all of a sudden, admitting emasculating her husband, admitting it was wrong. Bingo - that's the money question. If she can make people like her again, she can have a show on tv.

This woman is a full on narcissist and it's on full display.

Natalie Morales is asking her all the hard questions and not letting anything be left out.

Interesting that so far, Kate has not admitted the she started the PR tabloid war. She did. She was in People magazine. The weekend she filed for divorce, she released a public statement saying "due to Jon's actions I was left with no choice". She started this.

So yeah this is BS interview in terms of Kate. But the questions are great.

LOLOL Natalie Morales - "Why do the kids know the word papparazzi?"
Kate - "not by my doing"
Natalie - "but it is, you called them that to your kids"

Awesome.

Especially troublesome if they were out of school Thursday AM, because school was not in session
on Friday, Oct. 30.

But the original post I read about her ticket said she was the only one in the car.

What a dingbat said...

Tell me lies tell me sweet little lies.

Snap! said...

Megan- My kids stopped taking naps at 3 yrs old. Some kids might still nap at 5 yrs old- but I think Kate probably just makes them stay in their room for a quiet time.(Probably more for her!)

maggie said...

It is now 45 minutes into the interview and I have learned NOTHING. Natalie should be fired. Kate skated by with all the questions asked. What a stupid interview. Maybe the next 15 will say something revelant...but I doubt it.

Megan said...

If there was any doubt over whether or not this woman is a textbook narcissist.

When asked if her actions (keeping up the show and the interviews and tabloid attention etc) were selfish and harmful to the kids, she responds by saying that she is "selfLESS".

UM WWWWTTTTFFFFFFF?

Janet said...

There is a reason it's called "Her Story" and not "The Truth".

It's her story and she is sticking to it.

There is a special place in hell for those who hide behind their children in order to keep feeding their greed.

Tazzy said...

When you are with your kids at a grocery store, what do you do with the mags?

SHE IS NEVER WITH THE KIDS AT A GROCERY STORE.

She is such a lying skank.


Why not stay out of the spotlight for awhile?

Janine said...

OK... K8 and her show are off my DVR to do list, I do not want to contribute to TLC or K8 G. but I was sucked in for 3 minutes while channel surfing(that's all). K8 was describing how 'they told the kids about the divorce'. OH MY GOODNESS. This woman is a piece of work. Dripping in jewelry, make-up, fresh hair, beautiful set (or was it the Four-Seasons in L.A. last week?) She (in only 3 minutes) puts her fake
K8 spin-ish on how each kid reacted to being told. It sounded like she and Jon did it 'together' for the sake of the kids and she recounted EXACTLY the words (I don't believe her so no use in repeating) Mady spoke and how Cara fell apart (in graphic detail). The 5 year olds were "napping" so when they woke up, they told them in 5 year old language (some other cute-ish phrase) and the kids (in unison, I guess) asked for a SNACK. How perfect, K8. It was scripted! How great the kids all acted out their parts. I am done watching. 3 minutes was plenty. The kids will have ALL of their lives to live with this FACT. Their mother was pimping and pandering very soon after she broke up their family (for the sake of the kids). In the same 3 minutes, crocodile tears turn into streams as she describes her lonely,lonely nights. She also said she is home most of the time (kind of giving Jon a little credit). The hour re-cap will be brilliant. She delivers quite a performance. No doubt Sheeple will fall all over it... I turned off the noise when she was going to comercial... and the tease was "the paparazi and she have a HATE/HATE relationship"
Nauseating.

Darcy said...

She just said that she sees herself (are you ready for this?): SELFLESS.

This in response to a question of whether or not she and Jon are selfish.

OMG - she is living in an alternate universe.

Tazzy said...

I can't take credit for the paparazzi.

Well you decided to do the show.

Yeah, I can't accept that it's selfish. I am SELFLESS.


HOLY MOTHER OF GOD!!!!! SHE'S A LOON!!!!

chocolatebee said...

So yes I am watching the Kate special.And yes I am ashamed of myself.But I can't help but watch and listen to Kate contridict herself repeatedly.One minute she says "We didn't get into this to make money" and the next she says "A family of 10 with 8 kids can't survive on a nurse salary so we had to do something". She claims she's "done" and "she didn't sign up for all of this" yet she turns around and says "Well I have to make money". Which is it Kate?

One thing that bothers me is Kate constantly repeats that they could not make it on her or John's salary when in fact many families do make it on regular salaries and they have just as many kids or more.Not everyone gets offered a reality show.What would the Gosselins have done had they not been offered a show? They would have live a normal life or they would have found some other way to profit off of their children. Kate and her kids could very well live on a normal salary with a normal career if she would give the million dollar mini mansion, the wardrobe,the cars, and the other excessive material things she feels she has to live with.

my baloney has a 1st name said...

She is one of 5 kids-"the forgotten middle child"

She speaks to parents via email sometimes .They had a different opinions BEFORE the 6 were born and she decided to take a step back. One sister is accepting

She feels hurt on those that cashed in on her (jodi and kevin). Kevin was the brother who would say he did it when she did something and he would take her punishment.

Interviewer asked about kids safety she babbled how she did bed rest from 4-30 weeks and put nothing bad in her mouth for them...

LOTS of asking herself questions and then answering

Thank goodness for the long pauses as she reflects on questions or else they would never make it to the hour long

She admits she was hard on Jon

Mady knew separation was coming cara crumpled into a ball

Money for kids is safe and locked away.

Cant go back to being a nurse would not be able to provide for kids.

Few friends, does not understand why they keep coming back

Skated around question as to who called it quits first-mutual something

THe angle shows us that her legs are very thick and her middle looks chunky, interviewer look very petite next to her.

THe kids dont get filemd when they dont want to, she hold up her hand and filming stop instantly

I shut the tv off when she says its a hate hate relationship betwen her and the paprazzi

WHAT nonsense!!!

iheartmyhubby said...

She told the same story about her flipping the tabloids over while in the check out line.

She also told the same story about how Cara "melted down" when they told her about the divorce and how the little ones asked for snack.

She lied and said the divorce was a "very mutual" decistion. I call BS because I believe Jon on this one.

She told the same story about how the 5 yr olds shouldn't know the word "paparazzi".

She said she was not selfish, but "selfless". Crock of BS.

She said Jon needed to take the heat off of him so he made up the rumor of her affair with Steve.

She said she needs a bodyguard because there are a lot of people that hate her.

She made it seem that Jon was unfaithful, but she doesn't mention the fact that the marriage ended before he was "caught" with them.

Just a quick summary of her BS.

Snap! said...

My parents had 7 kids close in age-we survived without a tv show!!!
My mom stayed home and dad worked-
Kate could support her kids on a nurse's salary. But she would have to say goodbye to the Mansion and
private school- and say hello to real life!

TFTMom said...

May I be the first to comment on her tree stump legs and bloated body? Movie star material? I think not.

MayDay said...

I think Natalie tried to ask tougher questions than usual but Kate answered around them as usual.

Tazzy said...

She sits like a lumberjack. Very manly and gangly.

She says she can't control the past, present or future.

Um, uh...katie girl um...you can control um... uhhh the future. ::cue wipe tear::

Tazzy said...

"I'm a rule follower."


She said it AGAIN! enough

Kids miss the fun, the people etc. and so does she. Jon's fault bla bla bla

Tazzy said...

She said her kids deserve life on a golden platter. She comes from hard work. Wants to film with the kids or just her with TLC.


:coo coo:

iheartmyubby said...

She wants a show about herself with TLC if the kids can't be filmed.

Her "kids deserve life handed to them on a gold platter."

She said they still go to church, but then in the same sentence says that haven't been in a while because she can't bring herself to take them because it would make her realize that there are now only 9 of them. WTF???!?!?!?

She kisses her fans' butts at the end thanking "each and every one."

WOW! said...

I've heard it all, she can't go to church because it's too hard....not ready blah, blah, blah.....Does she think anyone's buying this BS she's spewing?

chocolatebee said...

Kate contridiction Number 19,887,463

Natalie: Do you still go to church?

Kate:We do but we haven't been in awhile

Natalie:stares blankly

Kate:I would love to but to do it alone....it would just be....nine of us....I just can't...

This woman is unbelievable!

My Point said...

This is a fascinating display from Kate into the mind of a narcissist.

Only sibling she was closest to all her life was Kevin, who is her younger brother. And she loved/trusted/relied on him because he took the blame for all the times she broke the rules growing up.

So then she meets Jon. Similar to Kevin, easy going guy, lets her dominate and have her way.

Kate doesn't need to be in the spotlight. She needs some really good therapy. But I doubt that would help because she won't let in any truth other than what she deems to be the truth.

She said the kids miss the crew, the events and opportunities, and she misses it too. She says now they don't do that. Okay so WHY NOT? She's got the money to take her kids anywhere. Why will she only do it if someone else pays for it? Why doesn't she ever play with her kids? Because she's not in it for love or being a good parent. She's in it for attention. That's probably why she wanted sextuplets.

Morales did a great job I thought. I laughed near the end because just minutes earlier Kate says she'll always speak well of Jon and then she trashed him again. LOL

Those poor kids.

Janine said...

OOOOOOps... it's a major wreck and I can't help but look! She has to have security (Steve) in the interview room because she has to be safe for the kids... The kids don't need Steve and Jon doesn't have Steve... but K8 needs Steve to go with her, into a secure building, with an entire production company and cameras (so there would be ample evidence of an assasin). Everything coming out of her mouth is CRAZY and she is loving her some K8. I think she thinks she is KEEPING tempo with Natalie. There was a word she used (or misused) too... trying to be intelligent, I guess. NUTS!

Sad for 8 said...

So apparently those of us who aren't taking our kids on trips every other week aren't having FUN! That's what's fun in Khate's world, and "the kids" miss it.

I wish she asked Khate why she feels the need for manicures (that she never had before) and to have 4 inch heels on everytime she leaves the house. When did that start?? About the time the tabloid pictures started I believe.

iheartmyhubby said...

Kate said she has a bodyguard because she needs to be safe because there are alot of ppl who hate her and have contempt for her, but is Natalie one of them?? Why, then, does her bodyguard need to be 10 feet from her during the interview??


She also said when she finds a positive in her life, she holds onto it tightly. Would Steve be considered a positive?

Me thinks she just likes having him around. She most certainly is having an emotional affair with him it seems!

Vanessa said...

Funny how they showed a couple of clips of her being a total b$#@& to Jon BUT no clips of her being a total freak of a mom...Joel on the laundry room floor, gumgate, cupcakegate, ice-cream gate...
What about THOSE clips, wonder how she'd defend that sh%$!

twins241 said...

Kate: Her Story.......How to go from frumpy to Botox and boobies in just 5 seasons

My Point said...

One more thing, about Kate's claim that she's a rule follower. That's a blatant lie.

Kate is about control. People have to follow her rules. She already admitted she got in trouble a lot as a kid and that she criticized her parents often. The truth of her "rule following" concept is that she will only follow other peoples rules if there is a payoff in it for her. Classic narcissist. Get people to believe you in any way as long as you get what you want.

That's all this is about. Attention, getting a tv show or movie or whatever. Britney Spears stepped out of the spotlight and that was what was needed. Kate needs to do the same. The problem is, as Kate apparently knows, if she steps out, she'll never get back in because she has no talent to warrant being in the spotlight. She's peddling as fast as she can, spouting contradictory statements, hoping to keep herself front and center.

That is the funniest thing I've ever heard. I hope the interviewer laughed in her face, but I'm sure that's not what happened.

Janine said...

You take the kids to church because you are "alone" What a nut. Take Steve if your afraid... Her "The Grove" shopping trip is such a set up!
