They play dirty said...

All of this horrible talk about Jon on all stations, and not ONE SINGLE SOLITARY WORD about Kate.
Something is up with that. I think the long arm of TLC goes deep and dirty.

MBach said...

Yes, still in the tabloids. Jon of the cover with the caption -Is He a Danger to His Kids?

Kind of over the top, don't you think?
He is also on the list of bad boys, in the top three, I don't know who was number 1.

I didn't see much on kate/hate, because all the media is too busy hating on Jon. I'm not defending Jon, because his choices to this point have been pretty poor, to say the least.
However, or whatever, the kids not being filmed is a good thing. Will Jon cave under TLC pressure, will TLC come up with a new contract and enough money get him to play their game, and will Kate get the show she always wanted -KateandKateplusKate? Well, tune in tomorrow or the next day or the day after that folks, and hear the latest dirty trick.

The newly christened Kate Plus Eight will not launch Nov. 2 as planned, but the show has not been canceled, a show rep told TVGuide.com.

News: TLC introduce Kate Plus Eight

"Jon & Kate Plus 8, the old incarnation, is over, as was announced a month ago. The show is not done. There is still every intention of the new incarnation to happen," Laurie Goldberg said. "It won't start Nov. 2, but we hope to do Kate Plus Eight — whether it becomes a full series or a series of specials."

The show will be delayed because production was suspended last month after Jon Gosselin requested that the network stop filming his children. He said it was harmful to them and that they didn't want to be on camera. Kate Gosselin, however, claims the children are "angry" production has been halted.


TLC is waiting for the couple to resolve their differences before resuming production.

"If this works out, we will film the kids again," Goldberg said. "No matter what, we're doing a show with Kate."

Momof2 said...

Radaronline is hitting Jon thick and heavy ..the worst I have ever seen from a so called "media outlet"....they are in the pocket of TLC BIG TIME.

The smear campaign is in full swing....TLC is going to lose SO MANY more viewers.

stopthemadness said...

Radar online is so full of itself. I never heard of that site til I came here and it seems to be full of paid TLC chimps.

TLC is shooting its sweetheart in the foot. By the time they get done flaying her husband alive everyone will be so sick of these people and their disgusting need to air dirty laundry they will WELCOME the hiatus. They will wish they were still being booed off Fox's award show.

Bring on kateandkate plus Kate.lol

I assume it'll be on at k8 pm and will tank in k8 weeks or less. Then they can have "I Love Kate" starring only Kate, followed by Kate Knows Best, Little Kate, Big World, Table for Kate, and 18 Close ups of Kate and Counting.
A View of Kate, Kate Live, good Morning Kate... just endless possibilities

"If this works out, we will film the kids again," Goldberg said. "No matter what, we're doing a show with Kate."

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

If they want Kate so badly then FREE THE OTHERS and take her!!!!!!!!!!!!

They won't because without the kids...Kate has NO SHOW.

Come and Get Your Popcorn said...

Radaronline is paying Kate for all this in a secretive manner. It is all out war, Kate is trying to gain her sweetheart status back but I think it will backfire on her.

Callie said...

For months I have been lurking here,agreeing with most yet never posting.Khate's total inability to show affection for those precious 8 children finally spurred me into writing. Two weeks ago i learnes that my 9 yr old granddaghter(whose mother we lost when she was 19 months to a drunk driver) has terminal brain cancer which no amount of chemo or radiation will help.
Katie Irene you do not get another chance or do over with those children.Each day you lose by not hugging,cuddling or in any way interacting with them is just that-lost.How dare you squander their sense of self,well being.while spending all your time and $$ on yourself! You are the most selfish self-centered bi*&%H!I have ever known! Someday sooner than you think all you will have is your own nasty reflection in a mirror and that is horrendous now so in time syou may even scare your nasty self! Those precious 8 have been wasted on you.You talk the talk of being a good mother,but we see you NEVER have walked the walk. May God forgive all you have done to those babies because I know I never will...

KatesBigFlintstoneToe said...

I deleted the TLC channel from my TV....don't ever want to watch that channel again.

As for this excerpt from tazzy's post from TV Guide---"If this works out, we will film the kids again," Goldberg said. "No matter what, we're doing a show with Kate."

WHO WOULD WATCH? So many people dislike her!

Jon is a renegade trying to muscle his way out of his media contract by forcing a network to halt a profit-making show. One should not be at all surprised that the media are doing their best to crucify him, as an example to everyone who is or may one day be under a similar media contract.

Jodie said...

I sooooo wish Jon would step up to the plate and be the better parent, like he was before they split. If I were him, I'd take those kids to the Statue of Libery on my own dime and show the courts and everyone how full of crap Kate really is.

junebug said...

There are two sayings that come to mind.

1.Money talks (the smear campaign against Jon).

2.It's the quiet ones you have to look out for (Jon listen to the judge. Keep quiet for now, and when the time IS right ambush).

delilahboyd said...

"No matter what, we're doing a show with Kate."

In other words... "Come hell or high water, we know that Kate is bankable: people either love her or hate her. They'll watch to defend her, or they'll watch to see how hateful she can be. It's a total win-win for us. Ka-Ching!"

Alas, I'm resigned to the fact that Kate's big giant gum-smacking head and strip mall haircut will be polluting the airwaves for a while longer. Pollyanna would say, "Well, we can be glad that she won't be terrorizing the kids while she's working."

gherkin said...

Isn't it next week that Kate is at Maria Shriver's Women's Conference in CA? I would love to see the reception to her there. I can't help but think the other "accomplished" authors, speakers, public figures, etc think she is a joke. Thank god she isn't speaking there. Apparently just signing her dopey book. Who is even buying that book anymore?????

I suppose she will be trying to garner a lot of sympathy. Poor me, etc.

Anne said...

If Stephanie the babysitter signed any sort of confidentiality agreement, why isn't Jon suing her?

Even if she didn't sign one, if she's spewing lies for money as Jon says, why isn't Jon suing her for libel and slander? Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman sued the Enquirer and won. So did Carol Burnett.

At this point I'm sure there's a lawyer that would take his case for free just for all the publicity.

I still feel Jon is the better parent in may ways, but watching his destruction at the hands of TLC, Kate and himself is becoming too much to bear.

No Drama Mama said...

What a hate campaign going on against Jon.... TLC is only going to create MORE animosity betweej Jon and Kate and the 8 will suffer.

This is not going to end well.

That was a much needed laugh today. Thanks for the humor, and the horrific image of all-kate-all-day-every-day TV. Just in time for Halloween. lol

Callie, I am so very, very sorry for what you are going through. What a sad time for you and all of your family.

Merrilee said...

How on earth could it have been legal for TLC to put a body guard with Jon to keep him "in line."

Couldn't this be something like false inprisonment?

I know absolutely nothing about the law, but this just seems not legal.

Callie, my thoughts and prayers go out to you. What a horrible situation.

Kate is too selfish and shallow to ever know what she has missed not being a real 'mom' to these beautiful children. Some people just don't get it. I just wish peace for all 8 of them in the future.

TUNDRA said...

I can't stand Radar or the rabid Kate fans who post all day and night bashing Jon Gosselin and defending Kate and TLC.

I just took a look at their front page and there are 5 stories on Jon and none on Kate who frankly I would imagine has to be seething mad about allegations of a "secret attraction" between her BFF Jamie Cole Ayers and Jon Gosselin published in this week's Star Magazine.

We all know Star, Radar Online and The Enquirer are all owned by the same corporation but it seems Radar focuses mostly on Jon Gosselin. Why?

Also in the article which further alleges Jamie and Jon are sexy texting each other is the revelation that Jamie's husband Mark filed for divorce in July 2008.

The divorce became final in August 2009.

Wonder what prompted her husband to file for divorce last summer and how long Jamie has been going back and forth to PA to stay at Kate's?

TheLyingChannel said...

TLC is waiting for the couple to resolve their differences before resuming production.

I dont know how Kate can say that TLC had absolutely nothing to do with the demise of their marriage. By the looks of things lately, TLC has EVERYTHING to do not only with the demise of J & K's marriage but did and continues to play an INTENTIONAL contributing role to the destruction of the Gosselin family as a whole! I bet the Dilley family are thanking their lucky stars that they never SOLD their 'amazing story' and children to the 'entertainment industry'!!

Fed Up said...

I'm not sure what this was on, was sick in bed with flu, but I couple nights ago I saw Jon on TV talking outside Konpound. Kate was pulling out & it was dark, headlights on, not sure AM or PM. And the cameraman asked Jon "What's Kate doing here while your here" And he mumbled something about "Oh, she asked if she could come work out & I said OK." WTF????? Are you kidding me? Did anyone else see this? They can't be civil at the bus stop or for the kids bday...But sure, come on over to work out. I wish I knew what this was on, I looked on Radar....I got a pit in my stomach (not from flu either) & immediately felt stupid. irst reaction, we are being played. I was Team Jon but now I'm sick of it all. Too many lies to follow. Don't care anymore.

MBach said...

I agree with Callie completely! What really seems the worst of this whole situation is most rags and reporters show Kate/hate as a good mother. Anyone watching can see otherwise. Can you imagine how she would have treated a less then perfect baby? How can anyone treat their children as things (Maddie's word-I'll bet heard from her mother) to use, instead of treasuring them as the gifts they are? It is beyond sad.

Callie, your little granddaughter is blessed to have you in her life. I am going to pray for her and you. You must believe that her mother will be with you to give you strength, and to hold her daughter once again. A bunch of good people visit this site, and be assured lots of loving thoughts and hope are coming your way.

Sidney said...

To Fed Up, Jon is trying to "take the high road."

He is trying to do what he says he wants, civility between Jon and Kate.

I agree with you, though. Jon keeps "not following the rules," and it causes problems for himself, and I don't think he sees that.

cdnmom47 said...

Callie...I'm saying prayers for you and your granddaughter...and sending lots and lots of warm, gentle hugs, too.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I saw it too! Couldnt believe my eyes! I dont remember what show it was on, my husband & I saw it & he said, "Wow, that sucks she gets to go there to workout on Jon's time".
Maybe they had a secret meeting, or Jon's lying & we're all getting sucked-in. Im so tired of everyone & the Media kissing Kates ass

Jen said...

20 years from now, the tabloid fodder will all be forgotten. Instead people will associate Jon and Kate with the original show that made them famous.

And what was that show comprised of? A control freakish woman who belittled her husband and tolerated her multiples.

When all of us are really old or gone, those episodes will be what remain.

Those episodes are what the Gosselin children have to show their spouses and children and grandchildren.

Kate made her own bed. I would never want to be remembered in such a way.

MomOf4InPA said...

Stupid Stephanie is on ROL again saying the kids LOVE being filmed, and a bunch of other stuff, and that just reconfirms to me that she was a not-a-nanny more than just a few times. I don't understand why anyone would give her the time of day, let alone believe her.

*sigh*

Swissmiss said...

Callie, I am sending positive thoughts to you and your family.

I saw "People" magazine at the library a few nights ago. Kate's picture was on the cover with the words "I'm afraid for my children." Or something like that. I didn't bother reading the article.

If Kate is screaching when she knows the cameras are running, what is she like when they are gone? It's almost too scary to think about. At least when the cameras were there, other adults were there.

I don't like to think about what happened to Cara and Mady when they got home from school and Kate confronted them about their messy bedroom.

WillowMc said...

Tazzy reported this from TVGuide:
TLC is waiting for the couple to resolve their differences before resuming production.

"If this works out, we will film the kids again," Goldberg said. "No matter what, we're doing a show with Kate."
------------------

TLC is NOT giving up. They want those kids, and I have a feeling that their lawsuit against Jon has something to do with getting his approval for filming. "Well drop the lawsuit if you give us the kids." Boy, TLC is REALLY evil. I can't believe a TV network would be so conniving and so intent on destroying a family for the almighty dollar. Unbelievable.

Jen said...

Saw the video of old crooked nosed Stephanie taking about how kids love filming. Yeah. She then goes onto explain how Cara cried multiple times wanting to know what the hell was happening to her family.

THEN she explains how she only met Kate once before.....

Cut to Kate talking on The View explaining why she called the police when it was Jon's custody. She said she NEVER MET THIS WOMAN.

So explain that one to me.

Kate + Kate said...

TLC may very well have a show with just Kate coming up, but it WILL NOT be +eight. If they want to film a boring "JUST KATE" show, fine...but they can no longer film the kids. They'd better get ready to change the name to Kate + Kate, because with the C&D order in place it means NO KIDS. She is on her own, and I doubt that any court in the land will "force" the kids to perform on tv ever.

redskiesatnight said...

Stupid Stephanie is on ROL again saying the kids LOVE being filmed,

The tabloids gave the impression that Stephanie was only around the Konpound for a very short time. How long was the ACTUAL time that she spent there, that she had established such a relationship with the children to the extent that she KNEW they LOVED being filmed? Was SHE present during numerous filmings? More importantly, was Kate and Stephanie BOTH present during filming? Considering, Kate said she had NEVER met Stephanie PRIOR to Jon hiring her a the 'baby sitter'.

Another question. How long was the TLC/Gosselin contract? Was it renewed per 'season'? Did TLC think they would OWN the Gosselin family FOREVER?

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

Ok, I will. Kate "met" Stephanie at a convention where Stephanie was working several years ago. Most people wouldn't remember somebody they met that way and that long ago. Kate has been guilty of PLENTY of lies, but I don't think this is one of them.

fidosmommy said...

So explain that one to me.


*****

OK. Kate doesn't notice other people. Standing 2 feet from Kate with your mouth moving and words coming out does not mean Kate notices you. Or chooses to remember you. Did Stephanie offer her a free trip to Rio? Then Kate never met her. Sorry.

Seriously? said...

I believe Kate Gosselin is now one of the most hated women in America. I agree with the poster who stated that TLC is shooting their so-called "golden girl" in the foot - not that Kate hasn't proven herself entirely capable of doing that herself. I can't imagine that ANY television program showcasing Kate Gosselin (or Jon Gosselin) could succeed now. She has become an embarrassment and it only gets worse with each passing day. Whatever the goal of this most recent media blitz by TLC and Kate's legal counsel might be, in my mind it is a complete mis-fire. The only good to come of any of this is that the children are now off TV. Where are all our "real" celebrities - would love to hear what they think about being bumped off the front pages of magazines and tabloid TV by this dreadful, despised woman. Being boo'ed should be the least of her worries. Who would honestly associate themselves with her in a professional capacity? Ridiculous.

fidosmommy said...

I don't like to think about what happened to Cara and Mady when they got home from school and Kate confronted them about their messy bedroom.


*****

My best guess is that Mady told her mother off and flipped her hair around, and Cara withdrew
behind her curtain of hair.

Then Mady stomped off and Cara cried.

Dinner was probably pretty interesting that night. I sure hope it wasn't eggplant casserole again.

Those poor girls. They were invaded, plain and simple.

******

I don't know who owns what, so this is just talking in general.

If all mags leaned in the same direction, they would only be reaching a certain population and completely missing the rest. The Jon supporters would not be
supporting anything from RadarOL.
while the Kate supporters will snatch it up voraciously.

So, different mags owned by the same big corporation hit different
segments of the population. All the money trickles up to the corporate offices and the rich get richer and the peons who buy the mags can believe the mag company
is on the side of the right person.
Of course they are - they're on their own side.

Fed Up said...

KatesBigFlintstoneToe: I'm LMAO cuz I never typed your name, even funnier than reading it here often. Always a chuckle. Anyways, thanks for confirming I saw what I saw. I was very sick with the flu & for awhile when I didn't see it anywhere else I thought maybe I dreamed it. I couldn't believe it. WTF Still can't. I wonder (do you know) if it was AM or PM?? Did they get caught with her spending the night? I don't believe with all the turmoil & trial that she was there to "exercise". Get real. Something very suspicious about it. I don't buy it. I want the truth. Which we will never know. that's why I'm Fed Up!!

KatesBigFlintstoneToe said...

Just looked at Radaronline...521 comments on "Kate in the Rain"? C'mon! There are more famous peoples' stories on there with no comments at all!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Oh,Fed-Up..You know what? I TOO had the flu, thought I was hallucinating, but I DO know it was in the evening because my husband commented when he saw it..Im thinking it was Entertainment Tonight: It was video at night, Kate was caught by her Paps driving out of the driveway, then the cut to Jon at the fence telling paps she was there to work out. My first thought?? With all this crap going on in her life, why is she so worried about working-out? Maybe she's doing that Maria Shriver Show this week and has look her (gag) best. Her hair looked perfectly in place, not like hair after a work-out! I think we're all being tricked

*****

The place she is staying doesn't have a gym/workout room? Or is Kate not willing to work out with the little people? Ye gads, get a membership in a club, Kate. For a month or two anyway. Oh, same problem there. The club won't clear everyone out so Kate can work out in private. It's a crappy life, isn't it Kate? Sheesh.

dustilies said...

Suzi said...

I've decided to blame this all on Jennifer Aniston.

If she actually would get pregnant I bet it would get the Gosselins off the tabloid covers.

----------

Well, I saw one tab cover proclaiming that Angelina Jolie is pregnant with twins again, so there's hope.
They've probably already started, but hopefully the Michael Jackson sightings (like the Elvis ones) will pick up speed soon. We can also wish for a former president's lovechild, or for another governor to go "hike the Appalachian Trail." And that not just Dumbledore but Harry Potter is gay. Could the little red-headed girl sue the Charles M. Schultz estate for unequal treatment and recompense compared to the rest of the cast? Kanye West goes to court-ordered charm school? Miley Cyrus and Hannah Montana are in fact two different people?

We can only dream . . .

jasmine said...

Did anyone see Jon after Kate came home to work out? Maybe she worked Jon out and used him as a punching bag, especially if TLC isn't paying for her personal trainer anymore.

Fed Up said...

KatesBigFlintstoneToe, HAHA Name still cracks me up. Anyways, hope you are feeling better. I know that I saw it on night TV (I do live in PA like Kons)& I remembered that Kate's headlights were on leaving, wasn't sure if they filmed it tho AM or PM cuz still dark here when kids go to school....I think we are being tricked also. No way would she care about a workout when the media frenzy was going on. As my name states, Fed Up!!! She never stops in just to "see the kids" when Jon is there. Except the day cops were called tho we saw NO photos of that!! Give me a break!!! They had to obviously come up with an excuse. How lame. They should have just said "She needed to see the kids." DUH How stupid are they? Or how stupid do they think WE are? They seriously need to hire one of us here. LOL Tho we are helping them as fast as they can READ!!! Always too late tho, huh? Hi TLC & PR team!!! Losers.

Fed Up said...

Jasmine: Good one!!! Gee I hope they filmed it. AHHH, Gosselin Memories. So priceless. Tho also a rerun, she's used Jon before for a punching bag. OH Snap!

weird said...

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

Any Radar article about the Gosselins has turned into a chat board for a bunch of clearly bored people. Half the time they don't even talk about the Gosselins,they just natter at one another.

whereismommy said...

I don't like to think about what happened to Cara and Mady when they got home from school and Kate confronted them about their messy bedroom.

Kate probably wasnt even home let alone the same state when the twins got home. Kate's interest in the twin's bedroom ceased the moment the cameras stopped rolling.

John and Kate who cares said...

I can only imagine what the next daily Ex Nanny Santoro exclusive is going to be...

just in on radar....

Exclusive interview, Ex Gosselin Nanny Santoro states Jon is really an Alien and has 3 other alien children. Santoro stated that while she was sleeping there having hot tub sex Jon confided in her about that he really is from another planet.

Ella's Mum said...

When Jon talks he speaks from the heart and I like that about him. She is always careful and thinks way too much about what she is saying because she has told so many bloody lies!!!

not K8's bestest friend said...

Callie said "You talk the talk of being a good mother,but we see you NEVER have walked the walk." I completely agree. It's one thing to talk about what a great mom you are. It's quite another to actually be a good mom. I am so sorry for what you and your family are going through.

Jen said "And what was that show comprised of? A control freakish woman who belittled her husband and tolerated her multiples." Tolerated. That is the perfect word to describe it. The kids love her. She tolerates them.

Button Button said...

A guest on Nancy Grace said that J&K are "low lifes."

Good! If people become sick enough of these feuding parents the interest will eventually go away.

Callie, I am so truly sorry you and your granddaughter have to go through this.
I will keep you both in my prayers.
Life is not fair in many ways and more so for you at the moment. ((Hugs)))

Brummygirl said...

I reported this on another thread as I was watching it. Jon said he was taking the high road.
I wondered if Kate was spying as E.T. was obviously there to report it.
I doubt if there is any collusion here, T.L.C. would have a lot of lawyers and people to pay off and the emotions were real from Jon. Perhaps he was told to play nice!!!
Who knows any more!!!

Ray said...

I thought something the nanny said on Radar Online was interesting. I know many of you don't like hearing about the nanny, but come on... if you take the nanny to your room over the garage in the early am hours in a sexy red dress and then the pap sees the nanny stay overnight and peek out many hours later in the early am hours still in the same sexy red dress you are leaving yourself open to scandal. There is only so many different times he can stay overnight with a different woman only to say it was innocent.

So, the nanny said he told her he took $100K from Kate's or the children's account to start his children's foundation. Well I remember Kate saying he took $100K out of the joint right after arbitration and he spent it excessively (on unwise things). So my point, and I do have one, besides spending $5K a month on an Upper East Side Manhattan apt, one or two new luxury cars, I'm curious to know how much money he actually put into starting his children's foundation? Could he have really have put even close to that amount in to start it? :-o

Pamela Jaye said...

I think Kanye should go on some talk show where Kate is appearing, burst out on stage and interrupt her.

It might improve his reputation.
(I don't know who he is, guess he's a singer, only heard of him those two times he said something really stupid)

I'd love to see Kate's response.
(and i'm still trying to figure out why *anyone* would do something like that. was he on drugs or something?)

sue TLC said...

Kate Gosselin is just a media hyped celebrity. Her future will be suing TLC.

She won't be able to carry a show and have a career in showbiz. When she can't continue to have a TV show, she will sue TLC and claim that the reality show ruins her chance of any future employment.

Santoro stated that while she was sleeping there having hot tub sex Jon confided in her about that he really is from another planet.

J&KWC - you gotta stop watching that Bubble Boy coverage ;-)

Speaking of - having seen some of that, I guess they are lucky it's just a week or two, cause that seemed sort of intrusive/abusive too. Especially that Heene guy who was yelling and screaming at Psychic mom. Don't know if the kids got screamed at.

Someone call Supernanny.

One more thing about Jon's Children's Foundation. It really sounded like something that could have worked for him. He clearly seemed to enjoy helping children from the Utah ski episode and Children Hospital episode. And I think he has been unsatisfied doing J K Plus 8. His Children's foundation would let his do a little bit of charity work which I think he would enjoy, party for the rest of the time, be able to say he had a hand in the IT part of the business (which would make him feel like he was working) and be able to quietly take some money off the top as a salary (when you donate to a non-profit, only a portion of it actually goes to the charity, the rest goes to admin such as salaries.

He was setting this up before the nanny and reporter affair stories hit the tabloids. He just didn't forsee in the next month to come (hard to believe it has not been that much time) that he could drag his reputation so much further in the mud. I can't imagine the foundation ever taking off now. I think he was really out of touch with his public image. He said Hailey supports him with everything, but maybe a cheerleader isn't going to help him make good choices right now. I'm really curious to know how much he sunk into his children's foundation... goodbye a little bit more of his kid's hard earned college money.

Kate went up to Mady and Cara's room to let off some steam. Probably as a payback for wanting to ride with Jon that morning and screaming "yay Daddy".

And in reply to Kate and Step. regarding the kids "loving to be filmed". I have to disagree.

The kids don't like filming. They're just conditioned to be around the cameras.

What the kids do enjoy are the free trips they get to go to every week, sometimes twice a week.

And I'm guessing that's what Kate said to them when Jon stopped the filming. "because of Daddy, we can no longer spend time with each other and go to trips". See, daddy is bad, daddy doesn't love you. I love you. .. etc etc.

That's how it went on.

But you can really see how the kids feel about Jon. I never once seen any of the kids face light when they see Kate.

I've seen Mady's face light up as she got off the bus and ran to Jon to give him a hug in one of the episodes. And just the other week, I think it was Hannah who did the same thing.

Mady also held Jon's hand as they walked to the car. And she's 9! One would think she would be embarrassed to hold hands at that age.

In another interview, Jon face lit up as he talked about what he was going to do on the twins bday.

Kate's face never lights up when she talks about the kids. The only time her faces lights up is when someone ask her a questions or feed her compliments that builds ego.

And when did Stephanie become a Child Psychologist? What gives her the credibility to say what the kids likes and dislikes are? She barely babysat them for how long?

I bet she can't even spell Gosselin. Jon needs to sue this fake model for defamation.

I remembered that Kate's headlights were on leaving, wasn't sure if they filmed it tho AM or PM cuz still dark here when kids go to school....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Maybe it WAS morning, maybe she spent the night. What ticks me off is NO ONE else is reporting it! Anything bad Kate does gets swept aside quickly! It sure wasn't on the Kate-loving Radaronline!

P.S. I live in PA too, thankfully I'm far from GosselinLand over here Pittsburgh..hehe

There is something strange about fame whore Stephanie coming out with all of this additional information NOW - Jon smokes pot, Jon hacked Kate's phone, computer, etc,Jon told her he stole $100,00 from Kate's account, Jon said he is from another planet, Jon is on a monsterous power trip wanting control over everything, etc...

But the weirdest part is her saying the kids love filming, it is not staged, and they only film when they want to. This has TLC and Kate written all over it.

What happened to the Non-Disclosure Agreement she signed with Jon? This vindictive, money hungry, attention seeking witch needs to crawl back into whatever hole she crawled out of. Yeah Steph, according to you, you had sex with Jon 9 times at his house while the kids could have been watching; what does that say about you?? And on your modeling page, you say that you are the Stephanie associated with the Gosselins, but tell people not to mention it. Then why did you? What a spiteful, attention whore she is. Jon seems to choose the worst possible people to surround himself with, let alone "confide in." Wake up Jon! And Steph- you don't care one bit about those kids, or you wouldn't be hurting them like this by releasing all of this information. What a selfish phony this girl is.

texas two step said...

So now "Star" Magazine is touting that Jon wants to hook up with kHates BFF Jamie Ayers.....advising there is a 'mutual attraction' between her and Jon. I say this girl is Trouble, with a capitol T. I happened to view some pictures on this womans FaceBook page that I thought were pretty disturbing, that tell me this girl is another publicity hound looking for her 15 minutes of fame. Now ladies, we all have girlfriends and have had pictures snapped with them..... but the way this girl was clutching onto kHate was quite odd.... almost 'stalker' like and very posessive with her hand placement. (Put in your minds eye how a young girl hangs all over her new boyfriend, hands on legs....). When I saw those pics, big red flags went up. Why else would you put pictures on Facebook of the ever famous mullethead and yourself, along with the kids unless you wanted attention (page has since gone private).
And kHate with her 'mothers intuition' had to race home this Stephanie was babysitting..... But she hangs with this one, who on top of it, believe is the one in the photo smacking the kids..... Lovely....

I wholeheartedly agree with you. And TLC will not know what hit them, when their "golden girl" turns on them. What a tangled web.

*******************
This is exactely what I was thinking. We've hoped that someone that actually worked for them would come out and tell the truth....but we all know they signed those "no-talk" agreements.

So how/why can this NANNY (didn't think they had them, only babysitters) tell all this? Is it because she is only codemning Mr. G and not Mrs. G or TLC?

Same as sueing Mr. G for talking and getting paid outside of TLC but not Mrs. G.

And WHERE IS THEIR JUDGE? Did he not tell both of these jerks less than a week ago - to be amicable and private????????????

mamaK said...

Didn't the nanny scandal hit before they stopped filming??? So how would she be around the kids to know how they reacted???

Come get your Possum! said...

Wonder what TLC is going to do when that divorce judge puts someone in charge of the children's welfare and the COURTS say NO to the filming? That's the real reason that Kate plus 8 isn't coming Nov 2 (just days after their next court date...hmmmm)

It's coming TLC... it's coming...

MissMeliss said...

Isn't Stephanie the one that Kate "didnt know" and wanted to check up on her thus Kate Gate? Isn't this what she said on the View? or is this a different "babysitter"?

For someone she doesnt know, she sure had no problem getting her onto the pro Kate side (kids love being filmed, Jon hacked emails)

Angel1 said...

"Kate Gosselin, however, claims the children are "angry" production has been halted."

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

They mean Khate is angry that production has been halted. If the kids are at all upset, it's probably because Khate has told them that the will starve, or be thrown out of their house because of it. Most likely blaming Jon for all of it.

Suzi said...

I spent some time on the Women's Conference website (it made me really want to go!!), and I noticed that Kate is still on the website page for speakers, but she is nowhere else mentioned in the Agenda - not as a speaker, moderator or "break-out" participant. Not sure what her role was originally slated to be, but it looks like if she is still invited they have her sitting at her table all day.

I bet if Kate does attend this conference it will really piss her off. She is used to attending those women's shows where she is the big celebrity and the list of participants at this conference is really impressive. I also wish I could follow her around with a tape recorder to see if she even knows who Elizabeth Edwards and Madeline Albright are - can't you see her having no idea?? I also wish someone would ask her what she thinks about the public option - I bet she has no idea what that means.

MomofFour said...

If Jon's PR people were smart...they would capitalize on this balloon boy situation and get Jon out there doing statements in regards to how damaging reality shows are for children...using balloon boy as an example of how bad this influence is. If he were smart...he could become an advocate of ending these type shows. Instead of attacking Kate..he should be focusing on what has happened to his kids.

TUNDRA said...

Is Jamie Cole Ayers the reason why Kate told Jon she was "done" with him back in October 2008?

According to the STAR, Jamie's husband Mark filed for divorce from her in July 2008 only 2 months earlier.

Why?

I smell a rat.

And it's not Jon.

Yes, I agree Kate has made this look like their ticket to skid row.
And blaming Jon.

Also, I think children pick up on the emotions of their parents pretty quickly. If Mommy is mad at something, it filters down to the impressionable children and they become angry, even if they don't know why or at whom. Anger permeates the environment and they breathe it in with the air.

Kate's got that down to an art by now. If only she could generate some joy and genuine laughter for the children to breathe. Maybe some forgiveness, unselfish behavior and oh, maybe some grace?

Callie, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your granddaughter.

I am so sick and tired of the nanny getting her 15 minutes of fame with her timely allegations re Jon. Unfortunately this just shows me that Kate and TLC will go to great lengths to continue to exploit the children even if they have to trash the father in the process of getting their own way.

STAY STRONG JON!

IF Jon was smart....that is the crux of the matter, we all know that he isn't. We also know that he does not have the smartest duck in the legal pond. He needs some big guns to fight T.L.C. Heck I reckon the people on this board could do a better job....has he even seen every episode and not gone by what Jon tells him?
Suit up with more legal hot shots Jon and please keep a low profile from now on.
I am still querying why you would let Kate on the property the other night when she limited your time at the birthday party!!

Very interesting stuff, Suzi!

I'm an author and speaker myself, and I've done both at conferences--speaking and signing together, as well as signing only.

Table sitting and book-signing without a speaking role is very low profile (and sometimes a bit demeaning) at these events. Those who just sign & sell usually even have to pay for their table--essentially being nothing more than a vendor.

The speakers get all the attention and most of the sales, too. (I don't even take book signing alone any more.)

If Kate truly was originally slated to speak and sign and now is to to sign only, this is a major demotion and would be rare--not to mention a HUGE ego blow to someone with Kate's narcissum. (But I'm sure they threw the table in, hehe.)

So if it did happen, someone in charge viewed Kate as too controversial, probably, and is distancing themselves from her.

The booking of these things is usually 9-12 months in advance--things have changed dramatically in that time, for sure.

Those of you who wrote the conference organizers may have been heard! Wouldn't that be an upper?

I am by no means a Khate fan and do not want to contribute to her success in any way, but I am considering 'taking one for the team' and attending the Women's COnference in Long Beach, October 26 for the sole purpose of reporting to GWOP. The cost is only $25 to attend 'Night at the Village'. I feel that I owe it to report to fellow GWOPers who have provided me with so many laughs and excellent posts. What do you think? Is anyone else attending? I will do my best to accurately detail the happenings regarding Kate although it will be difficult to do so without being a bit snarky. Let me know.

Just My Few Canadian Cents said...

I wonder if the REAL reason the police were called to Jon and Kate's house last summer when Kate tried to take care of the kids during Jon's custody time was because she WANTED TO WORK OUT and he denied her access to their home gym/treadmill. Given Stephanie's Radar interviews, it appears she is more known to Kate and TLC than Kate would like the public to believe. So, perhaps she went over that fateful night, not because she was uncomfortable that a babysitter she "didn't know" was looking after the kid, but because she wanted to work out. Nothing surprises me anymore with this family and TLC.
Also, while Stephanie is probably relishing the attention right now for speaking out against Jon, I'm sure she'll regret it one day. Who would want to hire her since she has proven herself to be so loose-lipped and untrustworthy when confided in ( not that I believe her allegations - which Radar should stop reporting as fact), but she's proven that if you tell her something, she's not above broadcasting it.
Lastly, I agree with the other posters about the Heene family and the charges against them. Perhaps this family has shed some unflattering insight into the type of parents that pursue fame and wealth by exploiting their children.

Mom of 2 Kids in Canada said...

The debate about the kids love being filmed. I doubt very much this is true... but who cares anyway. It should be a non issue as far as good parenting is concerned. They should not be making these decisions.

They probably like eating candy all day too... and let's not forget having their treat first, than their sandwich. hehe... but Kate doesn't let that happen because she's the parent and lays down the law. Kate should reliaze that "the kids want to do it" reasoning just won't cut it.

NeverLikedKate said...

IMO Jon was clearly set up.

I haven't read every single comment so this may have been brought up previously but my theory:

Kate knew this Santoro person prior to her becoming Jon's babysitter. Kate/TLC may have even paid her prior to that happening.

They probably knew that Santoro was familiar with Jon through the bar scene or whatever it was. So they approached her, paid her, and asked her to try to get into Jon's pants in the guise of babysitting for him.

Mission accomplished. And that's probably what Kate's "mother's intuition" was; either she had previous knowledge that Santoro was babysitting that night or Santoro called her from the inside.

Jon, being the adolescent that he is, falls for it hook, line, and sinker.

Remember the picture that some of us were convinced was Santoro helping Kate and the kids with the corn shucking.

I don't think this is far from the realm of possibility.

gherkin said...

Regarding the CA Women's Conference--it looks like Kate is going to be interviewed for 10 minutes by Giselle Fernandez and then I guess she will be signing books. She is just one of many who will be promoting their books. Looks like they are divided into 30 minute slots with 3 interviews (10 min each I'm assuming) in each 30 min. period.

I was at the grocery store the other day and saw Khate's face on the cover of (you guessed it!) People. I noticed on her left hand (I think it was) but not her ring finger that she had on what looked like a pearl ring with diamonds on either side.

Wasn't this the ring she was talking about replacing her wedding band with?

I'm doing my best to avoid J&K at all costs and only get my news here. So thanks mods. You're doing a great job.

Did anyone notice that the kids are acting out less? It obviously showed that having their parents fight in front of them was negatively affecting them....but really wonder if Jon and Kate jumped into getting divorced too quickly. Looking back, it has created more hysteria than peace for all ten of them. I wish they would have evaluated if getting divorced (rather than working out their problems) was 100% the right thing to do for them and their children. Those eight little faces are so beautiful, and I could only imagine what they go through on a day to day basis. Keep going strong Cara, Mady, Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah and Joel, we are all praying for you.

I doubt they are acting out less, it's just we don't see it so much anymore. I'm thinking Kate's executive producer credit might be a reason why.

runwithwind said...

We have all been played by both Jon and Kate, TLC, babysitters, friends and the tabloids. Kate coming over on Jon's day to workout? Her hotel doesn't have a gym?

Santoro coming out with all these new revelations yet she's seen filming there at the home with TLC cameras in tow. Kate saying she's never met her before, yet Santoro conveniently is seen leaving the garage apartment early one morning. Who was sleeping in the house with the kids? Both the blue van and the white mazda mini van were in the driveway and Kate hadn't bought a new car yet.

Kate showing up with her mother's intuition and calling the cops and then Jon stands his ground and says she can't come in. This was a civil matter and the cops had no authority to make her leave her own home unless there was an ex parte in place that prevented her from being there in the first place. Jon didn't produce any court documents to verify this to the police when they showed up and Kate willingly leaving the home, despite her mother's intuition. All very staged by TLC, Jon and Kate to get the ratings back up.

"Did anyone notice that the kids are acting out less? It obviously showed that having their parents fight in front of them was negatively affecting them...."


''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''


Let's be honest here, we only see the kids for about 15 (edited) minutes a week. Every show is about 22 minutes long and much of that is the parents talking. We see maybe another 5 minutes a week of pap videos. Also, what we see on the show was taped weeks ago.
We really have no idea how the kids are handling things right now at all. For all we know they are having trouble sleeping, throwing temper tantrums, not eating......or maybe they're just fine.

Probably within months, when the media circus dies down, we really won't have any idea at all how those children are doing and what they're up to. Is this a good thing? I don't know.

Come and Get Your Popcorn said...

What Mother would let someone try and destroy the father of her 8 kids if she did not have someone waiting for her in the wings, i.e. her boyfriend--Jon needs to show that clip of them walking around holding hands when they think no one is looking.

I can only hope that the paps intentionally shot that UGLY angle of Kate when she was walking into court and looked like some kind of monster!

Someone inside the house is sending out blogs to Radar and they pay--i.e. that Jon was acting strangely at the birthday party, did not shower or shave or change clothes, etc.

Could it be oh let me see...KATE!!!

Come and Get Your Popcorn said...

About the workout thing, that is a guise I think as Kate is staying in the boarded up bedroom all the time and in fact not going anywhere when Jon has custody. He has mentioned several times about her staying in her bedroom. There are other gyms that she could go to, virtually all spas have them.

Come to think of it, the reason she called the cops about the mole she put in the house was a smokescreen to show that she did not approve when in fact she and TLC put her there.

I honestly thouht when they got rid of Jon the way he had been trained all those years that thouht he would tuck tail and fade away. Wrong again TLC!

Kate is an ugly, vindictive witch and reminds me still of the lady who said "I will not be ignored."

I am angry, can you tell!

The Oak Room would have kindly delivered the meals to his apartment. He just can't help but make a spectacle of himself which in turn makes a spectacle of his kids.

Can everyone please scream OVERKILL together? Maybe if we click our heels together and say there's no place like home X3 - we'll all wake up and this nightmare will be over.

ROL now has the 5th installment (of how many?) from the now infamous not-a-nanny/better known as babysitter/maybe part-time lover/full time attention seeker....

Jon smoked pot
Jon hacked cell phones and emails
Jon stole $100,000
Jon using Haily for business only
and the best one - the kids love cameras shoved in their faces 24/7

And this person worked for him how long? If my memory served me I thought she was only there a few times - at best a couple of weeks?

With all the interview air-time - you'd think she was their long-lost full time exclusive nanny.

Brother this is so totally ridiculous and if it wasn't serious and potentially slanderous - almost laughable.

bcsurvivor2001 said...

I don't quite get the hoopla over the Jon/Haley NY pictures. Personally I think it's a bad move on his part - but..........

On one of the shows he's been doing lately - either ET or Inside Edition - announced on Friday the headlines to the tune of (I'm paraphrasing now).....Jon - no kids for the weekend - what will he do?

These are staged photo-ops for either ET and/or Inside Edition....I'm sure of it.

Not the smartest move on his part - but what else is new lately.

I think there will be enough reporting on Kate's attendance at the dumb women's show that you should not have to put yourself through that, nor should you give one more red cent to that fame grabbing money hungry witch. Don't do it. Isn't it enough that there are still people on this board that continue to watch her show every stinking week? Don't be one of those fans that say they are not a fan just want to let us know what is going on, believe me we will find out from all kinds of sources what is going on without having to put ourselves through alll of the torment.

Kate wants Nobu! said...

snipped from Sasha's vanity fair link...

*page 1*

It’s early August, and Kate, who is 34, has come to New York to do battle—media battle. She and her estranged husband, Jon, are churning around at the center of a multi-media tsunami focused on their split and impending divorce. They are the subject of gossipy talk-show talk—a frequent “Hot Topic” on The View—and the target of thousands of disapproving blogs (GosselinsWithoutPity being the most insane).

Insane or Just Intense? said...

So Vanity Fair says GWoP is the most insane of the Anti-Kate blogs. On a cursory reading on some days that would appear to be true. Sometimes people get a tad bit hysterical or personal or off-topic. Then I get tense or irritated and think I will just move on--but then I see someone always takes the errant poster to task and puts the discussion back on the tracks. (Right now the posts are trying to go off on some anti-lesbian sidetrack and are being pulled right back to topic). That potential wayward slide has happened a few times in the few months I have been a follower. So, yes, I believe you can see rabidness if you don't stick around and see the whole discussion. But, at least so far, that rabidness gets tamed pretty quickly. I think a more fair description of GWoP is "open forum" rather than insane. People are allowed to be intense, people are not allowed to keep being nuts.

IcallitasISeeit said...

Come and get your popcorn...

I saw Kate at a booksigning in NYC back in May and she was wearing the pearl and diamnond ring back then. It was quite noticeable and reminded me of a grandma type ring from the 1980's (yellow gold, oversized peal and worn on middle finger).

Also, BM was first in line. Kate barely gave her the time of day. Then BM lied on her blog and said she ran into the signing late and got all this personal attention. BM also photoshopped some pics and added in her daughter with Kate. NOTE: the daughter was not at the signing. Also note, BM dyed her hair blonde like Kate's. She had dark hair on a photo of her that used to appear on her website. She since removed it since I think people recognized her at the signing.

I would take anything you read on BM site with a grain of salt. I don't believe she is a Kate G or TLC insider for one moment.

Suzi said...

Come and Get Your Popcorn said...

She had that ring on when she went in the door on the today show when she was sobbing about not being able to pay the bills and sat there and told Meredith that she and the kids had discussed getting a ring like that next. She had it on already and must have taken it off for the interview as she clearly had it on both coming and going. What a liar she is!

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

Where are these pictures? I looked but couldn't find. Thanks!!

Suzi said...

Fox News Philly has an article titled "Octomom is Hot for Jon Gosselin." Classy, I know. The best part is that Nadya Suleman is quoted as saying everyone should leave Kate alone - that she must know she can handle it. Wow - you know things are bad when OCTOMOM is the one taking the high road...

Curious said...

Here is a hilarious clip from The Soup (The Kate Organizes her Ginormous Basement Full of Stuff episode) where the kids can be heard screaming bloody murder - while Kate ignores it all.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgTyBK5YJlE


I haven't watched any of the eps/clips for several seasons, but so many people have mentioned this one, I decided to take a look.

Holy cow! That organizer woman deserves a medal for dealing with Kate's ungrateful behavior and expressions.

She is a better person than I. I would have said forget it, I'm outta here having to deal with that ungrateful cow (no offense to actual cows)!

NO ONE and particularly not someone giving you something for FREE should have to put up with that kind of treatment.

TLC must pay these people/companies something because no amount of free advertising can be worth having to deal with Kate and her entitled, ungrateful attitude.

Stern Fan said...

Maybe TMZ or radar or someone else needs to get this babysitter and hook her up to a lie detector...I know, she could go on Howard Stern and he could bring in his guy that is a polygraph expert and we could find out once and for all what is going on here! I know that the Stern show would probably be happy to do it.

Bulldog Mom said...

I don't think that kHate is going to be pleased with the Vanity Fair article. Finally a reporter telling it like it is. kHate will be in a rage over this!

Come and Get Your Popcorn said...

Hi Suzi, the link to that pic about the ring is on here somewhere, I forgot who it was that posted it. I doubt if I can find it now as I delete all of my hits that come in through my email. I will look though. Maybe whoever posted that link (it read do you think this is the ring she was talking about) will read this, as I responded something to the effect--you don't think surely she turned that ring around do you? I am going to search for it.

Come and Get Your Popcorn said...

Call it as I see it---

Thank you for verifying that for me. I thought I was the only one that saw that post when someone said they couldn't find the pic. And you are right, the first thing I noticed was how huge the pearl (mother of pearl as she called it) was and if she designed it it was not very practical or even attractive. She clearly lied to Meredith as the indication was that she wanted a ring like that when in fact she had it on when she went in--but would not know where to begin to find the pic again.

Come and Get Your Popcorn said...

Frannie-----I am really glad to see Vanity Fair get in on this, they do great investigative reporting. Wish they would dig a little deeper. It seems to me like Steve calls a lot of shots---he wouldn't let her go to Sodu or whatever but said she could go to FAO Schwatz...and why the heck does she need a personal shopper?

TUNDRA said...

That's great GWOP got mentioned in the VF article because people who read the article are going to want to know more and GWOP will be one of the first places they go for information, thank you very much!

Second, they do have a letters to the editor section for those of you who would like to share your opinion of the article and/or clear up any inaccuracies.

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

I can see her using a personal shopper. First of all, she probably thinks that woman was hired by FAOSchwartz just for her. I also don't imagine she would even know what toys were hot right now. She might know the latest at Ann Taylor but certainly wouldn't waste her time thinking about what to get her kids like REAL moms do.

Reading news said...

If you go to Radar on line and click on "Kate Visits the dentist" there is a link on there for "kate does errands in the rain" She is wearing a large pearl ring on her middle finger. Is that the one being discussed?

I also don't undestand those white jeans with spiked heel sandals. It has been so darn cold here. She looks silly. I think she ought to spend a few days changing her closets for the cool weather. Nope, she doesn't do that stuff. Remember when Jon took the kids for a walk in the woods and it turned out she had never unpacked their coats when they moved to the new house. Lazy and disorganized in my opinion.

I am considering 'taking one for the team' and attending the Women's COnference in Long Beach, October 26 for the sole purpose of reporting to GWOP. I will do my best to accurately detail the happenings regarding Kate although it will be difficult to do so without being a bit snarky. Let me know.

I'll take mine with extra snark, please!

eveinsc said...

Forgive me if someone has already caught this, but Kate's pearl ring is not the mother of pearl ring.
Two totally different gem's.
Ive noticed the big pearl ring for at least a few months now.

I find it interesting they think this site is the most insane. They are either not reading a lot of the pro-Kate blogs that absolutely crucify Jon, or they don't see those as insane? Wanting Jon in jail and #$## happening to him there? Let's just say I've read a lot of comments about Jon on other sites that I would not repeat. At least what people write here, I may disagree with, but at least I can repeat it.

f8k8 said...

Radar has once again released an "exclusive" interview with the Nanny. This is what her 4+ interview?

And guess what, She's wearing the same shirt. Meaning, this entire thing was recorded in 1 day and she was talking about the different accusations all in one day.

Radar is picking and choosing which part of the interview to post on their site.

This is clearly staged. This Stephanie chick is reading off a script and it's obvious. Just like Kate.

TummyTuck#2 ? said...

Has Kate had a second tummy tuck along with all her other cosmetic surgery?

In the vanity fair article the author writes, "She talks about how they followed her and the kids on their beach vacation to Bald Head, North Carolina—that was the trip where Kate showed off her new tummy tuck in an orange bikini and wound up on the cover of nearly every celebrity weekly."

As if a tummy tuck occurred in a short time frame before the May 2009 Bald Head trip.

rural mom said...

Okay, seriously, we need a whole category on Vanity Unfair calling this group of bloggers insane. Perhaps it is insane to waste time commenting on the Gosselin media whores but there are still 8 innocent children being thrown under the bus.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On October 1st Jon issued the cease and desist order and was on Larry King with his lawyer.

As best I can tell, Santoro was TAPED on Oct. 2 since they reference that Jon had been Larry King "the night before". I too, think all of these recent clips were taped at the same time. Radar is just spreading it out into little bites for maximum exposure. I'm sure they had them in their hip pocket just waiting for the optimum time to release them. Otherwise why not put them out there on Oct.3rd? Lots of big news according to Skanktoro and they just sit on it? Not too obvious, are we radar?

IMO, not a big deal only because the entire article basically showcased what selfish bitch K8 really is.

Oh Kate! Comparing yourself to Princess Diana?

SNORT.

Come and Get Your Popcorn said...

Kate is playing up on the Mother of Pearl thing, i.e. the pearl with the 8 diamonds, she would not wear mother of pearl I think because it is very common and easily affordable. She is using a play on words I believe to further assure the world that she is in fact a loving mom.

Come and Get Your Popcorn said...

One thing is for sure GWOP will be getting a lot of play off that one, good publicity for the site in any event as no one knows the show like we do.

Come and Get Your Popcorn said...

Who is intimate enough with their body guard to tell him to shut up? Oh of course Kate+Steve=4ever, oops the secret is about to come out.

Come and Get Your Popcorn said...

Kate should be careful with the Diana thing, as she herself has been known to go 100+ mph with and without her kids in the car, trying to get away from the paps; -kind of like she was doing in NYC when she insisted on going out with her entourage after soliciting donations from the sheeple on the today show to feed her children and pay the bills.

bcsurvivor2001 said...

Most recent pictures from sosugary - labeled Kate's Dentist Trip are interesting to me.

If you look closely - she doesn't have one piece of jewelry on at all. No rings, no necklace and from the best my poor eyes can see - no earring either.

Interesting.......I think this is a first? Out in public with NO jewelry whatsoever?

In pics #1 and #2 - I think (IMHO) her cheeks look very flushed.

Maybe I'm reading way to much into these - but don't seem like she's coming out of a dentist office?

Or more whitening done possibly?

bcsurvivor2001 said...

Has anybody seen if she met her deadline for filing with the court yet? I think I asked earlier but didn't get any replies. I can't believe it's now Monday - following the Fri. deadline and no reporting? Tsk tsk tsk :)

OK, I'm a bottom to top reader so if this has already been published, sorry about that. kHate's interview in Vanity Fair did her no favors. Here's a snip from the E! online story.

• With all this Balloon Boy stuff, we've forgotten about our dear Jon & Kate for a brief second. Where are they? Oh, just in Vanity Fair. Poor Kate feels "like a prisoner" of her new fame. Life is so hard now, she can't even get some sushi from Nobu—instead she has to go to FAO Schwarz so people will think she's the better parent. She also admits the eight have started acting out because they miss their dad.

----
Or, she is unsophisticated enough to think that mother-of-pearl is a 'mutha' of a Pearl.

It' pretty obvious she is very unsophisticated, hence the need for the TLC bodyguards and handlers to keep her out of trouble. This was an eye-opener from the Vanity Fair article. SHe must be so well coached to never steer far from her message in media encounters. Why so many in her entourage other than the necessary ego stroking? It seemed that even her bodyguard, Steve had more sense to keep her out of Nobu's. Duh! The only time they trust her enough to be on her own is when she is pumping gas, visiting Kinkos, Starbucks or the UPS store.

LiesInWailea said...

OK, guys, if you check out the Women's Conference website, there are actually REAL AUTHORS (but not Beth) and interesting speakers. I was a bit surprised. I have my tickets and will be in attendance. I know what to look for, so let's not discuss it here, otherwise, TLC will inform Khate as to what 'not to do' for 'Can Do Kate'. I will do my recap and I can hardly wait!

Yep, pretty amazing. Kate just outed herself to a popular and classy publication...and she doesn't even realize it yet. Quite frankly, I'm amazed TLC allowed it to be published. We all know how Kate is, but to the unaware who have paid little attention to the J&K saga, Vanity Fair just gave them and the rest of their readers a look at the REAL Katie Irene. Excellent article I thought.

From Hollywood Life:

Nobel Prize Winner, Dr. Oz, Rabbi Boteach Tell Jon Gosselin: Be a Mensch


HL - Monday, October 19, 2009 3:24:12 PMOy vey! Jon Gosselin must be desperate for parenting advice -- so desperate, in fact, sources tell HollywoodLife.com, that the reality TV dad sought religious guidance from three very wise men -- Nobel Prize winner Elie Wiesel, Dr. Mehmet Oz, and Rabbi Shmuley Boteach. And -- unbelievably -- he did in front of a huge crowd at Central Synagogue on Sunday, October 18th.

According to our source, Gosselin “stood up in a crowd of 1000 people” asking a panel of public experts for their opinion on “how to regain control of his personal life and his family” and "how to teach his kids real values in light of the divorce he's going through.” The panel also included Newark Mayor Cory Booker.

The advice was dispensed, according to our source, with eminent author and Holocaust survivor Wiesel telling Jon, “teach your kids values, not to be selfish and not get carried away with being famous.” Rabbi Shmuley told Jon to “dedicate time for his kids without distractions” and Dr. Oz said the kids should learn to “have respect for others,” according to our insider. Even Mayor Booker chimed in, telling Jon to “be a great example,” our source dished.

Before the panel, Jon went to Solo, a Kosher restaurant in Manhattan, favored by Madonna, with galpal Hailey Glassman -- but went to seek absolution without her.

Rabbi Shmuley told HollywoodLife.com, “He came as our participant, and he came without Hailey. It was a great forum ... I believe that Jewish values can help people going through a divorce. I told him to be a responsible father before a celebrity.”

The previous evening, Jon took Hailey to the Oak Room, where they drank a few cocktails and noshed on a cheese plate, Kobe sliders, shrimp cockatil, corn dogs, and oysters. Our source said the duo looked, "very cozy."

Good Grief said...

Do you think Kate is the only person in the public eye with handlers? A PR person is hardly unusual and isn't a reflection of her lack of "sophistication."

You're right. I think the yelling out the car window at the paps is a much better reflection of that...

Sasha -

"BM" is Baby Mama who runs the "Gosselin Family Fansite" blog which used to be named the Anti-Gosselin Without Pity blog. There aren't many posters other than herself, but it's amusing because of her complete obsession with Kate (and hate for Jon!) and her apparent interest in GWoP, which she refers to a lot and calls "haters." So she's here...watching us... :)

It's been speculated that the real reason Kate has Steve is to keep the BMs away from her and I have to say, once you read a post or two of hers that theory really makes sense!!!

whocalledit? said...

GMA just had a clip about the negative effect of reality tv on the children involved. Someone here predicted this..that the fallout from balloon boy would call attention to reality tv and kids.

Tired said...

Wow. Thw Vanity Fair article is a disaster for her PR, imo.

Vanity Fair is no schlock tabloid. It is read by a sophisticated audience. And the theme of that whole article, to me, was 'look at this shallow, self-centered tabloid celebrity'.

It opens with the Nobu chant, lol. In other words, it opens with 'this chick really doesn't get it'. Talks about how giddy she was after her View appearance. Four block chauffered trip, invoking Princess Diana (it is an easy walk to FAO Schwartz from Essex). Taunting the paparazzi. Mature.

And the entourage, rofl. Steve had to tell her Nobu was "not safe", hilarious -- to get her to drop it, like a child. The TLC person telling her to stop talking about how the kids might be sad.

Well done, Vanity Fair. Tell the story, and it speaks for itself. I don't know how the author kept it together.

Kris said...

I just read the Vanity Fair article and oh my, it is not at all flattering to Kate.

She'll probably have to do damage control once again.

Good for Jon! That must have taken a lot of courage. Unlike his professional-blamer soon-to-be-ex-wife, he is actually admitting that he screwed up and would like to fix it.
I am not Jewish, but from what I have learned from various friends, I think the Jews place a high value on their children -- quite a good place to look for advice, IMO.

MBach said...

Today a headline on my aol welcome page says -Octomom thinks Jon Gosselin is hot. Oh Gee, how far down the toilet will this "stuff" go?
I DID NOT OPEN the page. I do not want to feed the monster of Gosselin frenzy by showing any interest.

I have read what is posted about the Vanity Fair piece. It sounds like Jon got trashed right along with Kate/hate. Not that he doesn't deserve it, but the Jon is bad Kate is good stuff is about 20 to 1 right now. I WILL NOT WATCH the show, but I checked the guide on my direct tv last night to see what description was listed for the episodes. Kate/hate and her little girls in a world of butterflies and balloons. Jon on a march through the wooods with crying (as I read in a recap) children. I understand this walk through the woods episode made Jon look like a hateful dad with little regard about his children's safety.

Funny how the programing on The Lying Channel just backs up the propaganda that ALL the media is repeating. I started to type -media is reporting -but they are NOT reporting. All those rags and interviews just make cover after cover with Gosselin headlines saying the same thing. Whatever is "hot" enough to sell the latest crap.

Take sides America! - Jon or Kate? How many of these media sources have asked America to stand up and defend the kids? How many have asked America -Should these kids have a chance at a normal life?
Hmmmm, seems to be a very small number.

Kateonomics said...

Oh, come on, ya'll! OF COURSE, Kate knows what a Public Option is.

That's where We, the Public, have the option to send her a cash or check so that she can continue living in the manner that she'd like to permanently become accustomed to.

For The Moment? said...

Re: Acting out/missing their dad and hopefully you Kate.

Kate dear I don't know what you could possibly have against therapy, but I think the general consensus amongst professionals would be that considering all your children have gone through it would certainly be of benefit.

It is a great opportunity for a child to be heard as an individual in a private setting and it is nothing for you to be fearful of as it is confidential.

They don't delve as deeply as you might fear, they merely give the child a voice and reassurance that they do not have to face their fears alone.

Laine said...

After reading the Vanity Fair article, I really really wish that author could have done an interview without Stevie and the TLC keepers present.

I hope Kate ends up having to give depositions and/or testifying in court. I suspect she would be much more revealing under tough questioning.

I bet the kids don't miss her nearly as much as they do Jon.

DLCF said...

You don't get much better in the life lessons department than Elie Wiesel.

Dude survived 5 concentration camps, holds a Nobel Peace Prize and a Presidential Medal of Freedom (among other accolades) and has condemned genocide--of all races, creeds, and religions--on a worldwide scale. I hope Jon realizes the importance of Wiesel's wisdom--that it comes from a youth lived in the truest Hell imaginable--and integrates it into his experience.

Kate probably gets her life lessons from James Frey.

Laine said...

I'm afraid she doesn't do ANYTHING without TLC present. Heck, I bet she doesn't even pee without them... it's becoming increasingly evident that they have her closely guarded and she loves it. She sees their relationship with her as a team ready to conquer (make lots of $$$) the world. It's a marriage made in hell.

Smile and say cheese... said...

Looking at the pics of Jon and Hailey in NY. His face just lights up when he is with her. Oddly, the same look is on Kate's face in pictures with Jamie. That one picture of them together -- both wearing black dresses -- both with big, joyful smiles. Kate's smiles usually look very fake, and probably most are, but when she is with Jamie, Kate looks like she is really having a good time. I'd have to say that Jamie really must be BFF as she claims.

ToTheMoonAlice said...

With apologies to "Seinfeld" and the Soup Nazi...

Kate, no Nobu for you!

Sasha222 said...

I think it's great that Jon is at least attempting to get some sort of advice from other men who actually value family the way they do. I just wish it was kept more private.

And I just adore Elie Wiesel. I would give anything to hear him speak like that. When I read "night" in Jr. High I was so incredibly moved and changed forever. I already have a copy waiting for when my daughter gets older (in case they don't still assign that book in school anymore).

I am not Jewish but I do love and agree with a lot of the teachings and values of Judaism. Yes, they do cherish family very much and it's very sacred to hold one's family together and close all through one's life. So maybe it's was meant to be that Jon got involved with Hailey and is spending time with her family. It's definitely better then Micheal Lohan. I hope that her family and church helps him help heal himself and those kids. As well as show him how incredibly lucky he is to have 8 healthy, beautiful children. Sadly, Kate is a lost cause. Maybe she will at least learn to stop bashing Jon so he can do what he needs to do.

Idea for a unique reality show:

Two women, life partners and feminists, give us a unique view into the life of children whose parents are same gender.

One of the Moms is a high-powered television executive. The other Mom has gone into "retirement" to be the stay at home parent.

Could that be Eileen O'Neill and Karen Stoddard?

How would those two parents like having all their laundry out to dry?

Who would suffer from that show? The children, of course.

Interesting.

I sent an e-mail to the author (Nancy Jo Sales) of the VF article telling her that I enjoyed it and that it was about time someone showed kate for what she really is as too many people try to make her out to be supermom. I got a very nice reply from the author.

So (according to Radaronline) apparently Kate is doing a one hour special next week which will be an open forum to fans to ask her any questions they wish to ask and she'll answer honestly and truthfully. (I didn't click on the article so I only read the first paragraph on the homepage).

Ummm...TLC...earth to TLC? How dumb do you possible think we are? I have much better things to spend my time on Monday nights then listening to Kate spew the same old, tired lies that she's been spewing for weeks now. The shark has been jumped, the horse is dead - stop beating it into the ground. Save whatever reputation you may possible have left and just end the show. No lawsuits. No new "Kate's New Life" or "Kate Does Organic!" shows...no one is interested. If you haven't figured that out by now, then Lord help you.

Ewwww, you're not going to believe who has a crush on Jon Gosselin.

Sleaze attracts other sleaze. It figures.

Nadya doesn't like Jon, good grief said...

Nadya was just being silly - she even said that she was just amusing herself. I can't believe how the press has run with this stupid story, ugh!

Right... We're still waiting for an answer to where the 2 million went, and she was supposed to provide a full accounting to the 55k last Friday.

Instead of giving us the full accounting on Friday , TLC came out with a lawsuit on Jon and we got a few more "exclusive" interview from that Nanny who only saw the kids for 1 week. LOL

Be she sounds like she knows the Gosselins for years.

E is showing a news special about Lohan visiting Jon last weekend at the house. Now you know that was a E channel set up. They were riding the ATV things and I saw the dogs running around. Didn't they leave already? Are they back?

Kallies said...

For being such a supposedly good publication, Vanity Fair made some comments (such as the tummy tuck being new lolwut?) that were just downright silly. And they called GWOP insane. Gasp! D:

Also from the VF article: “I can tell you why probably Princess Diana died,” Kate says in the car. “Those flashes are blinding!”

Just no. That is just a stupid and horrible remark to say. :| Not to mention that it suggests that she's on the level Princess Diana was, which is just incredibly narcissistic.

I won't ignore that the structure of her statement was awful, either. :]

livnluv said: Yep, pretty amazing. Kate just outed herself to a popular and classy publication...and she doesn't even realize it yet. Quite frankly, I'm amazed TLC allowed it to be published.

TLC couldn't stop Vanity Fair from publishing the article. They had already given permission for Khate to be interviewed. I'm sure Vanity Fair did not have a contract stating that it was subject to an acceptable review & approval by Khate or TLC.

I would imagine though that in the future TLC and Khate will be more inclined to say "no" to interview requests from reputable magazines.

For The Moment? said...

RE: Kate's face.....

Remember when she used to say she wished she was Asian? If you look at the old footage her eyes are round and wide and her face is round ahd her lips are not as full. I think she has definitely had an eyebrow lift and eye tuck to make her eyes more almond shaped and by the lack of movement in her face most likely Botox. I think she and Jon both have veneers now. That is just my opinion.

I also can only hope that she is being shot at a less favorable angle...they can change everthing about a person w/ angles and lighting. When she was going into court that day she looked like a monster.

But who I am to say, if I could afford it I would definitely have some work done......

Refreshing, isn't it. Finally a report on what's REALLY happening behind the scenes and without the TLC/Kate spin that's given to everything else.

Somehow it makes me suspicious about TLC and their motives behind allowing the interview. They've kept such a tight reign on anything Kate, I just wonder if they're getting ready to throw her to the wolves. But then TLC was not necessarily represented in a good light either.

BarbMae said...

Well at least the two of them are pretty much out of the media spotlight. Aside from the dropoff/pickup school schedule and the kids playing outside things have calmed down. But wait until next Tuesday when all heck will break out w/the public court hearing. Wow! Another round of he said she said. Also haven't heard anything about the TLC suit against Jon... Round Whatever.

IMO, the Vanity Fair article was a good example of just how FAR REMOVED Kate Gosselin REALLY is from the often described as uber organized CAN DO 'super mom' of two sets of multiples just trying to give her children a 'normal life'. Seriously, the article did a good job of show casing that 'motherhood' as it applies to Kate Gosselin, requires the 'expertise' of a staff of PUBLIC RELATIONS to fine tune, define, and dictate the who, what, when, and how TO BE A PARENT.

Kate thinks that TLC is there for her - her friends. It's sad that she really thinks they care about her. If they could make more money by stabbing her in the back (figuratively) they would. Right now they are making more money with the way things are. It's kind of sad in a warped sort of way that she thinks she is some big movie star with a lot of clout. I imagine she thinks she is still their big ticket item. No doubt they will dump her. She absolutely will be devastated and totally unprepared financially or emotionally to parent her children. There is no way that she has enough money saved to support her lifestyle for any length of time. Maybe not even enought to keep that big a$$ mansion. Her poor kids are going to be jerked around for years to come.

Feeling Sorry for the 8 Kids said...

According to this TMZ story, Jon Gosselin has actually had the gall to demand $12,000 per hour to a radio station in Florida in order to even appear on the air.

Talk about having an overinflated ego!

anotherthing... said...

livnluv, you mae great points.

i think TLC will throw kate into the fire to save themselves in a heartbeat.

all it will take is TLC getting too much heat for the show/kate/PA dept of labor etc... and theyll turn on her to save themselves so fast her head will spin.

and lets be honest... she'll freak. she thinks they actually like her.

as much as she uses others and spins the PR (or TLC does it for her)... i think that she really honestly believes that shes above any of that happening to her.

i cant wait for that meltdown. *giggle*
because i dont think its too far off. TLC is going to grow tired of defending that hot mess/digging her out of the hole that she digs every time she opens her trap.

Radar has once again released an "exclusive" interview with the Nanny. This is what her 4+ interview?

And guess what, She's wearing the same shirt. Meaning, this entire thing was recorded in 1 day and she was talking about the different accusations all in one day.

Radar is picking and choosing which part of the interview to post on their site.

This is clearly staged. This Stephanie chick is reading off a script and it's obvious. Just like Kate.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
snipped for space Radar is just spreading it out into little bites for maximum exposure. I'm sure they had them in their hip pocket just waiting for the optimum time to release them. Otherwise why not put them out there on Oct.3rd? Lots of big news according to Skanktoro and they just sit on it? Not too obvious, are we radar?

I don't think the one day interview spread out over a number of days is that big of a deal - remember, Jodi & Kevin's interview with them was spread out just the same way.

Now, Balloon Boy has been in the news a lot here in Australia, but unless you're watching a US Entertainment show, you won't find any comparisins to the Gosselins here. And I like to think that those who watch shows like ET and The Insider on free-to-air tv only know just enough about the Gosselins to think "Yeah, they are exploiting their kids, just like these Balloon Boy parents!". I hope so, anyway lol.

Another thing, watching ET today (lol) there was talk about investigating the father's emotional stability - how come, after the stories of her crying jags, no one is investigating Kate's emotional stability? Oh that's right, I forgot - she's the
media's 'sweetheart'. Lets hope now with all the Balloon Boy/exploitation of kids parallels, someone will decide to investigate Kate too.... After all, I think the tide is turning on Kate now she's being shown for what she is - Vanity Fair is just the start, I hope!

That's us! We're the cool and crazy people who intend to make a difference in the lives of 8 children. Hopefully our talent will shine through!

IMO, it also proves that Kate has no idea what to say or do without somebody directing her. Any potential talk show producer only has to read this article in Vanity
Fair to see Kate is a loose cannon that needs to be reigned in. She has to be led with a firm hand or she will embarrass the program she represents. Not a good prospect.

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

Before this article, there seemed to be plenty of stories of Kate's bad behavior, but it was usually in a generalized telling so it was easier to dismiss as rumor or hearsay. But the VF article did a great job of just telling the truth and letting the audience interpret it as it may.

On a related note, do you think Kate has any idea her "inner circle" are putting up with her because they are being paid to do so? I wonder what will happen the first time she tells Steve to "shut up" once he's off the payroll? And how unprofessional is it to tell a reporter that his former employer is "a bit of a nerd"? Yikes.

Kannie said...

Just read the VF article, which is accessible on the website.

Not one 'scene' that shows Kate is a positive light.

This isn't a case of an educated person mocking an obviously uneducated and unsophisticated D list celebrity.

Nope. There's really nothing good to be said about Kate.

But we've known that for a long time. Now the upscale VF readers, those who don't already participate in this blog, will know it too.

Bye Kate. You're done.

Brummygirl said...

I just read the V.F. article too.
No redeeming factors as far as Kate is concerned, so do not know how her "admirers" would glean this from what was said.
It is certainly nice to know we are insane on here, at least I will know what I am when I get up in the morning!! LOL
