An Open Letter To Kate Gosselin:

Paula,

It has come to my attention, via this article at E! Online, that you are thinking of doing a View-like women's talk show. I don't know if this is a bad idea in general, though I think that you are better off just doing your cooking shows and not risk spreading yourself too thin. But I'm not worried about you doing a talk show as much as I'm worried about the person who you might do the show with.

Kate Gosselin???

I know she's all the "buzz" right now, but so is the HIN1 virus, and you don't want to be close to either of them. She's guest-hosting The View this week while Elisabeth Hasselbeck is busy with her new child. I think that if you do this, it will make you look horrible. Well, actually, if you're sitting next to Kate Gosselin you're going to look great, but I mean it's going to be bad for how people will think of you.

There are a multitude of women on TV (and elsewhere) that you could pick from to co-host this show with you. Please don't pick the much-disliked, clueless star of a reality show that exploits children.

Thanks y'all,

Bob Sassone

Seriously? SERIOUSLY?? Hate was invited to a party for the View in NY? Those women are so 2 faced and stupid. They treat her like crap on the show (mostly Whoopi, but they all froze her out pretty much) and then slam Jon over the latest news and invite that trash to a party?? Unbelievable. I can only hope that since she is not used to being invited to parties that there are drunk people there who hate her and let her know it!

ErinKate said...

Is it just me or is this taking on a real high school feel to it as it gets worse with every new story. Why does Jon feel the need to go on all these shows and apologize to Kate? We get it, Jon, you made mistakes and you are trying to man up. Why does the media have to be involved in that? Why does he have to tell the Insider, Mary Hart, Nancy Grace, Larry Kng over and over. Didn't he apologize once on TV? Why not just text Kate in private or leave her a voice mail. This kind of stuff is what my teenagers do, they run and tell everybody everything. I have a hard time taking him seriously and I cannot believe these newscasters really give a flying fart about these people.Even they look like fools. It's like a bad B movie. What is the point? And where is his soul mate, Hailey? Why is she not with him, or any of his other harem?

Donna Day said...

I don't know if it's me but i feel like most media outlets are being very biased and mean to Jon. Like i always said, he may not be the brightest but it's never too late to make a wrong a right. What I don't get is that months ago, the world was telling him to get his act together, take the kids out of the show, apologize and admit his mistakes....well, months later he's doing it (which is what i prefer b/c it was on his own terms) and the world is STILL BASHING this guy and giving him such criticism.

Kate's reply back wasn't very "high road"ish either. It's just a sophisticated version of telling jon, "you suck. stop w. your BS and don't think you can get my paycheck with your PR move!" That's exactly what it is. Kate doesn't get criticized for this but Jon does for being so blunt saying he "despises" kate.

We live in a cruel world

PS: when is it okay for kate to make money off of the kids by keeping the TV show? but when jon goes on to make appearances (easy, free money w/o the kids exploitation), its wrong of him???

OH and if you go on US mag's website, there's a funny picture of kate. She does not pay attention to her kids when she's not filming at all

Zoe said...

In that party, maybe Whoopi can talk about she supports Kate just like how much she supports Polanski.

Don't they always support the one with business leads? Business first. Children's welfare, second. Lovely.

KatesBigFlintstoneToe said...

Why does Kate always have to walk ahead of everyone she's with, like her kids AND her *ahem* "bodyguard? Who DOES this! Most bodyguards walk IN FRONT of the people they are trying to *ahem* protect

(see Kate's dinner with Steve.......oh, and Mady & Cara):

From TV NEWSER at Media Bistro:
Now It's Kate's Turn to Talk

Jon Gosselin made the TV rounds Thursday, including an interview with CNN's Larry King, now Kate Gosselin will sit down with Meredith Vieira live on NBC's "Today" show Monday. NBC says Kate, "will set the record straight about her husband's recent actions and the suspension of filming her reality show."

Yep, television is the best format to argue with your husband....

She is in LOVE with him said...

Will you look at how she's dressed when she is with STEVE?! Again the MINI dress, street walker HIGH heels with straps up to her ankles, and some sort of blue top wrapped in a sweater dress?
What a mess. (sosugary)

Jake said...

I think the media outlets have no reaon to believe or trust Jon. He has been all over the board and contradicted himself so much. Think if it was anyone else with Jon's track record.

He says he doesn't want his kids filmed :

- yet he allowed paparazzi to film his kids just a week or so ago when they took the dogs away.

- he is in negotiations to do another show that features him as a Dad .. which means the kids would have no privacy.

Does that sound sincere?

It wants to make peace with his wife:

- yet it was less than a month ago he said he despised her on national tv;

- and he admits he didn't talk to her about the halt on the divorce;

- and while trying to call a halt on the divorce he still professes his love for Hailey.

Does that sound sincere?

People who don't follow the Gosselins as avidly as we do have no reason to trust Jon.

Squinty said...

Is it just the picture? I looked at the pic on Popsugar with Kate and the twins (the human ones, not the silicone ones) and her eyes look weird. Like they're pulled up at the outer corners. Lol, I wonder if Kate is trying to cram in some "procedures" before the gravy train comes to a halt.

Take a look at Steve's face in that pic....I think he's finally experiencing what Jon put up with for ten years. (Poor Mady & Cara are used to it.) On a sidenote; what's wrong with Khate's right eye? Looks freakish in this pic. Maybe that's why she leaves a beaver tail hanging over it all the time.

the new Paris said...

Because PR is announcing Kate's "invitation" to the party with the View women, I'm willing to bet she is being paid for her appearance for publicity's sake.

That's the way it works, just like Paris Hilton gets paid to make the party rounds.

Keep it up, Kate. They are using you, but at least you make money and get attention, right?

MyPoint said...

Kate and her PR machine, including TLC, has been slamming Jon in the media for many months now. He really has no choice but to use the same venue to speak for himself. If he says nothing, the world will continue to believe what Kate and her posse say about him. And that's not fair nor are they telling the truth.

The guy is not a saint but he does not deserve to be subjected to Kate and her team talking out of both sides of their mouths. He is the children's father. None of them seem to consider that when they're fueling this fire by giving Kate airtime. When the kids grow up, there will be an equal amount of anger from them toward their parents and the media in general. This whole thing is serving nobody well. Except TLC.

Which reminds me...Jon's lawyer said TLC made $186 million last quarter. That's only 3 months of the year. So how many more millions did they make in other quarters? This is why TLC is putting garbage like this on tv. They're making a mint off of it.

Heehee! I forgot she was the Queen of PA. I hate that SHE has to walk in front & be seen first! It would be so funny if she fell off those Hooker Heels one day & Stevie couldnt catch her in time because she's SO far ahead of him, he'd just stare at her & laugh. *Oh, I can dream*

Commonsense said...

This is going to keep going on until Kate's show debuts in 2010. I guarantee it will have big ratings. That is why Jon is running around, trying to build ratings and anticipation. The filming had stopped anyway for the season. This is nonsense.

turtlegirl said...

I personally believe that the View is in the gutter. It's been there for long while now.

Kimberlee said...

Ugh, the pictures of Kate getting out of the limo going to lunch with the twins and her BODYguard are just revolting. She really does think she's some A-list celebrity, doesn't she? She is always so "Hey, LOOK AT ME!!! I'M SPECIAL! I'M BETTER THAN YOU!" and I think it's just ridiculous that everyone indulges her in her fantasy. If you wanted to keep things low profile how about throwing on some jeans, taking your own car (no ridiculous bodyguard needed), and parking in whatever space was open for a lunch out with your daughters like other moms in America do!? This is one of the reasons why this "reality" show needs to stop too....she's not relatable in even the tiniest sense anymore. Most REAL celebrities don't even exploit their children like she does and in the manner she does - all high heels and miniskirts and limos for a simple lunch!

I agree. Looks like she may have had that wonky eye fixed and still adjusting to the surgery aftermath. Let's see- tummy tuck, boob job, wonky eye fixed..... and she is not even 35 yet.

The terminator said...

Guess what. I feel that the View is the next to tank. Just saw a hint of the underperforming shows, and the View is one. Four dumb blowhards trying to overtalk one another and one is stupider then the next. People are sick of them too. Good riddance. Kate is a show killer, she's bad luck no matter where she goes. Call her "The terminator".

I remember an episode in the airport and pumpkin patch where Kate was screaming at John to walk in front. It seems that she does not want to walk in the rear, as she would actually have to watch all the kids in front of her. Rather, if Jon is in the back, it is always his fault when things don't go right. This woman does as as little as a mother to watch her children as possible. Yet some believe she is still some kind of role model. Unbelievable.

Sickening display said...

Kate now has the distinction of being the most OVERRATED NOBODY in the country. Nice title Kate. She's a "HUGE CELEBRITY" in her own mind. Oh, how the mighty will fall.

More feeding of her ego said...

I just saw a blog that said Kate IS being paid to go to the View party for Sherri.
This is sicker then I thought.
Keep feeding Kate's sick ego.

LP said...

If k8 is being paid to go to the View party it is something that is done all the time (think Paris Hilton). It creates a buzz. She is currently the "it" non-celeb and her presence will create a buzz.

When are these stupid talk show hosts and journalists going to just throw up their hands and say "enough."

Anne said...

Kate - Please do not do the Today show on Monday morning. We all know it will be the usual spin so instead of sitting there talking about "taking the high road" just take it and let your lawyers deal with your problems with Jon.

Contrary to Jon's attorney's comment about the "court of public opinion" there are 8 children involved here and you and Jon should be dealing with this in private family court, not the back and forth TV interviews.

It's not the high road, just so you know.

Can't See Sheep said...

I've got questions, does anyone know the answers?

Has Kate actually gotten any death threats, threats of any type, been made to fear about her safety, have a stalker (BabyMama?) or anything that would suggest that she would need a bodyguard or is he there to keep the sheeple from asking for autographs without cash while she's out, or to keep them from saying hello?

Or are the body guards just accessory's she believes she should have now that she's an A- list celebrity (choke), in her mind at least?

It just seems so very strange that every time she's out, no matter where she is, there is at least one bodyguard with her. Does she really need one to go to the spa with her? Can't she & the girls just go out & have fun together without them?

Does Jon have bodyguards with him when he goes out on his own or with any of the kids?

Do the kids left back at the McMansion/ orphanage get a bodyguard or does the bodyguard leave with Kate? With all the info out there on those kids, if I had a bodyguard it'd be with them. I'd think they were a little more at risk than Kate. It's not like she's venturing into questionable areas of town or anything, they all look like very public areas & well the bodyguards who aren't knocking boots with her aren't likely to be cheap accessories.

Mind you with all the media fawning over her for so long I'm starting to wonder what CEO she's sleeping with.

Melanie P. said...

Articles about Jon on Perez Hilton's site. Now, he is decidedly anti-Jon but if these two articles are true, I hope people will remember his actions that he does on his own volition - selfish immature actions. His recent moves to end the show, are more to his new lawyer's credit than his own. I just caution people to look at the whole picture.

If this is really the "realist" reality show on TV, why don't we ever see the stretch-limo-with-a-divider carting the Gosselins around on the show????? Hmmmm, I'm guessing the same reason we don't see shots of the whole house or the 26 acres....

Yeah, I tell you, I feel like...as a viewer...I'm being assaulted. I'm a 25-year, diehard Letterman fan who has to listen to him telling me about his sexual antics at the office. Now I've gotta listen to Jon and Kate tell me their problems. LISTEN UP, Dave & Jon & Kate, I got enough of my own, okay? I thought watching TV was supposed to be about my entertainment. Well...newsflash...I'm not feeling entertained.

-----------------------------------
When I would look at the stuff on justjared or radaronline about Jon and Kate (trying not to do that now), there would be photos often of Jennifer Garner with her daughter Violet just doing normal things, going about their way and not making a big deal about it, with Jen Garner in no make-up and casual, normal clothes befitting the situation. So, there you go. A real celebrity doesn't have to try so hard.

Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian---attractive, maybe nice girls---but it's the same thing; exactly WHAT are they famous for? My cousin's beautiful Irish Setter had eight puppies one time; it didn't get her on the cover of a popular magazine about dogs. It only got her a trip to the vet to get spayed.

---------------
It isn't just you. I keep getting caught up in it, then retreating, realizing it's ridiculous. It's bordering on the saturation point. They're making too many TV appearances now; it reduces any credibility. It's time to wind it up. I've had more than one epiphany in my life; had one this morning, in fact. And that is, I have no intention of setting up my DVR to record The Insider, The View or any of this other stuff next week. Individually or together, Jon and Kate have finally escaped my interest. They're going off TV (it seems certain) and taking the kids with them. That's the only silver lining...taking the kids with them OFF OF TV so they can have their childhoods (no matter how dysfunctional due to their fractured homelife), without the intrusion of cameras. There's enough exposure now about child actors being exploited on reality TV that I think any network will now think twice about what they film in order to avoid this mess which TLC and the Gosselins find themselves in. Time for some of us to move on now and away from this sad story. Time for Jon and Kate to work out their problems in a private setting and not on televised programs in front of an audience. We have to stop making them into something they're not in terms of "celebrity." They're just two, flawed people who had a bunch of kids.

Kate Gosselin, Queen of PA. That's funny. Maybe she'll get her own State park or they'll rename the PA turnpike after her. Starbucks can also put her on their mugs and Target can change their logo to Kate's face.

Anybody with even an inkling of the facts knows not to bother with the first link you posted - just by the title. How is Hailey a "homewrecker" when Kate told Jon it was over more than a month ago? Since that article likely contains falsehoods, I won't bother with the second, either.

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

I think I may have an answer: TLC pays Steve to guard her, or like in Jon's case, TLC paid a bodyguard to "make him behave himself" in public. Kate is rude to her "fans", it's well documented. She screamed at "fans" who ALMOST made it to her table while she was dining in NC (?) She "shoved past" her fans at the Skating Charity Show. It's Steve's job to keep "fans" away from Kate so she doesnt scream at them, hit them, shove them, or make a fool of herself, (ya know, "bad press") My my, Steve sure has a job on his hands, trying to make THAT woman look good & behave!

8OFFTV said...

On LKL last night, Jim Moret was guest host. Second half of show was Jon Gosselin segment. Panel guests were Ken Baker, Executive News Editor for E!, Howard Bragman, Celebrity Publicist & Crisis Communtication Specialist (NOT!!), Dr. Drew Pinsky.

It was so overtly negative regarding Jon that I found it difficult to watch. I am not on team J or K but all about the kids OFF TV. I could care less about J's motives, only that he finally is taking action to be a protective father.

These so called experts seemed to not know very much at all about the back story but had very strong negative comments regarding Jon and fairly positive comments regarding K. Dr. Pinsky stated that K had much more crediability to decide that filming of the kids was not unhealthy. Really???? BS.
He also made mention that K has much more media savvy and ability to express herself. We all know that she has at times that superficial persona that sheeple gravitate to.

I am very disturbed that it appears that no media outlets are supporting J in finally acting to protect the 8.

Take a look at LKL transcript for 10/2/09.

Aunt Chris said...

Isn't it cute how Steve and Kate are wearing the same color blue?How sweet. And who the HELL puts a sweater on, then pushes it back off the boobs? Oh yeah, Kate does. Doesn't that defeat the purpose of a sweater - to keep warm? Maybe she's hoping Playboy will finally give her a call since the planted story she put out there didn't work.

Tami said...

I can't do it. I can't watch Kate on Monday on the Today show. If I see one more lie, one more case of her being coddled by the media or one more hypocritical statement from her I will lose it. Nothing she says will be the truth and she will be asked NO tough questions. It is just not worth watching. What is the point? I will not tune into her show. I hope no one does. The previews were ridiculous. Who wants to see her raving about labels? She could have bought the label maker herself and did the project by herself but she has zero organizational skills or motivation to work.

Interesting how Kate likes to dress up the kids in matching outfits. Does she do the same with Steve and Herself?

The only one who believes that Kate and Steve are not dating is Gina Neild. I would bet even her boys know different.

ITA! She looks the way we used to look as kids when we were pretending to be oriental -- you yank the outer corners of your eyes up. I'm sure she had SOMETHING done to her eyes. They look bizarre. Also, is it just the shirt she's got on, or did she have "the girls" redone? They look enormous.
I really wish they'd do a cross-over show with What Not To Wear. Kate would be a lot more attractive if her clothes fit properly.

What bothered me about the picture is that Kate looks completely lost in thought, not even caring that Mady was directly behind her with a glass door needing to be held open. It looks to me like Kate pushed the door open, went out, and gave no regard for the child behind her. I know that's conjecture, but it still riled me.

Manners might suggest that Kate would go out, hold the door for whoever was behind her, and then let the door go when everyone was out.

She looks to me like she "doesn't notice people" all right.

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

Seems like its someone in Kate "camp" since there ARE in-home photos, even candids of the kids playing in the basement...

To respond to your other post about the sosugary.com pictures, I think the guy with the name tag walking behind them after their *ahem* romantic dinner was a waiter at the restaurant, thus the name tag.

ErinKate said...

Does anyone but me wonder why Jon put up that ridiculous sign and then headed out of town? Why put up a sign on your house that your (still) wife can remove because it is her house too? Maybe for DRAMATIC effect?? I mean who would obey a sign? Well, it worked and they are once again on every news channel in existence explaining yet once again their side of the story. Does anyone wonder why Jon did not put up his stupid sign before the TLC announcement that his name would be taken off the show? Think about it, if he cared so much about his kids why didn't he put up this stupid sign and get a lawyer involved before the TLC announcement and his ever-so-important LA Dodgers game? Why is Jon not in Pennsylania taking care of these kids that he cares about so much or taking his 3 sons or the rest of his kids to a baseball game? He left town!!! Maybe that is why so many people are bashing him. His actions don't make sense to me. Sorry.

AGAIN with K8 appearing to 'set the record straight'?

HOW MANY times do we get this same act, same scene, repeated?

It'd be such a pleasant change if both J&K would get their respective lives & stories in order, PRIVATELY, because if they did, there'd be no need/no excuse to have to appear on tv to 'set the record straight' over and over and over again ad nauseum.

Whoever decided to take this show from an occasional episode 'cute kids' to a weekly Jerry Springer marathon should be fired. And for 2 parents to go along with this is beyond disgusting.

ENOUGH. Go permanently away, J&K and TLC.

I'll bet you my white plastic chair and a slice of wedding cake that she's continuing her transformation into a life-size Asian Doll. Wasn't there a theory floating here that Kate was obsessed with the idea of "Chinese Doll" babies and targeted Jon because of his heritage?
She's such a mess. I hope the kiddles can get some counseling from someone who isn't under that woman's thumb.

fidosmommy said...

I don't think Kate's had any surgery on her face or eye. It's only in a few photos that her eyes look different. I really think it's the way she's holding her eyebrows up in that high arch thing that pulls things into strange contortions. She looks like she's either trying to hold off yelling about something or is
completely in her own world in those pictures. In other pictures, especially ones where she is smiling for the cameraman, her eyes look much softer and more
like they always have.

Whatever is going on with Kate in those luncheon pictures, she is clearly disconnected from the people with her.

Considering how ridiculous Whoopi, Joy, and Barbara are about much more seriously abused children (such as Roman Polanski's victim), I am not at all surprised that they can't have empathy for the Gosselin children either.

You have to know something about Perez Hilton (Mario). Mario's "opinion" and favourable press coverage always, always goes to the highest bidder.

He's just a sickening kickbacks-taker ($$$) and shamelessly posts blatant [[[advertisements]]] ohhh, so thinly disguised as "celeb gossip" pieces. Madonna, Lady Gaga are PROOF of this and his very own readers call him out on this practically every day (I've been banned by Mario for telling it like it is!). Yet, the advertisements continue.

Kate's PR team are supply the coin, he waddles down to the bank to cash the cheques/check to buy doughnuts with.

If you want unbiased KON news, go to Harvey Levin's TMZ or the E! channel website.

OMG, you have NAILED this situation - thank you.

I am so sick of all this angst and melodrama and he-said/she-said, and tawdry details of things best left personal and private.

Bahbwa Walters' tell-all book, J&K, now Letterman: ENOUGH. Who told you people airing your dirty laundry in public qualifies as tv entertainment?

The formula is now predictable: first project a squeaky-clean (calling yourself a 'christian' always works for awhile), then, when it is learned your life has not quite been as ethical as you've pretended, have an epiphany/have a lobotomy/see the light/be 'saved'. Then write a tacky tell-all book about your personal travails and how you triumphed over them. Never pass up an opportunity to go on a talk show and publically humiliate yourself by giving the entire viewing audience way TMI. Then Pass 'GO' and collect the bucks.
MONOPOLY is a fun board game, but no one wants to watch it played on tv and consider that entertainment.


So, to all the J&K's, B. Walters, David Lettermans, et al (you KNOW who you are): Cease and desist.

To me, in the sosugary pics, kate's eyes look like mine do if I spend a lot of time crying, all swollen & puffy. I can't really picture Kate as the crying type, though (even though she tries to make us believe she is).

Ohio Buckeye said: "Bahbwa Walters' tell-all book, J&K, now Letterman: ENOUGH. Who told you people airing your dirty laundry in public qualifies as tv entertainment?"

In fairness to David Letterman, it was not entirely his choice to air his dirty laundry in public; he was more or less forced to do it, as the victim of an extortion plot. I think he felt it was better to come clean before the news broke and the public concluded he had something even worse to hide. Letterman, at least, would seem to prefer that type of spotlight to go away.

Contrast that with Kate and Jon, who court the paparazzi and have been appearing on lots of other shows beside their own, determined to turn their private life into tabloid headlines.

MickeyMcKean said...

On ROL this morning there is an article stating that Jon removed a lot of money from a joint account he held with Kate, leaving her $1,000.

Per the article Kate's attorney will file a motion on Monday ordering Jon to return the funds.

I find this tidbit that Jon took money difficult to believe.

First of all, it is on ROL and I don't believe anything I read on ROL since they are pro-Kate and controlled by TLC.

Second, Jon has been with his attorney on a daily basis for the past few days in CA.

Last but not least, Jon would have to know that he would be ordered to return it, and if he is serious about stopping production, this action of emptying out a bank account would would overshadow his efforts to save his children.

JMO.

Radar reports Jon emptied out the joint bank account and left Kate only $1000. Since I have never been divorced, how are joint accounts handled? I just assumed they each had their own account, unless this Radar report is from a Kate source. I'm sure Jon was instructed by his attorney to do this if it did indeed happen. The only thing I know that I am aware of with friends that have divorced is that usually one spouse attempts to hide money.

Mariasmom said...

From TMZ
Is Jon Contemptible?

Kate Gosselin is drawing the big gun -- we've learned she's hired legal pitbull Marty Singer to go after Jon Gosselin ... asking a judge to hold him in contempt of court for raiding their joint bank account to the tune of more than $200,000.

We've learned there is an existing court order prohibiting Jon or Kate from withdrawing any money from the account without the consent of both parties.

We've learned lawyers for Kate will go to Pennsylvania court tomorrow and argue that Jon has flagrantly violated that order, that he should be forced to return the money to the account and held in contempt.

Ironically, Jon suggested on "Larry King" he wanted to save the marriage -- at the same time he emptied the account.

Ms.Peach said...

I don't believe Jon taking out the money was done on a whim. I'm thinking he and his attorney may have proof that Kate was hiding money. They were stupid to keep a joint account even with the court order. I don't understand how he could take the money out if the bank was aware that it needed permission from both.

Shame on Them said...

jon if you did take the money out shame on you. If your lawyer advised you to do this because you feel kHate is hiding money shame on him. If this is another publicity stunt shame on everyone! I really don't see how he could have done this - wouldn't kHate have noticed that much money being moved? What were they doing with that much money in a checking/savings account anyway? Wouldn't it be wiser to have it somewhere where they could earn a little interest?

Chuckle said...

I was at an arts and crafts "art on the beach" type of show today and there was a man there selling things from "Gosselin Arts" - he had a hand lettered sign up that said NOT RELATED TO JON OR KATE!!

Tami said...

IF Jon wrongfully took money, why is Kate letting the world know anyway? It's like she is tattling every single move Jon makes to let the world know how horrible he is. She must be very insecure. No one would know this if she wasn't telling. Also, when I clicked on the People story, why did it say up top Jon Gosselin empties bank account, Kate Major--or something like that. I would not be surprised if she had something to do with this story. But why is her name even still on People stories if she supposedly resigned from there?

sayitisntso33 said...

Not all banks require that both parties of a joint account approve a withdrawal. Depends how the joint account is set up.

Regardless, you know Kate or TLC tipped off the media on this transfer. How else would anyone other than these two know?

Don't most divorcing couples talk to their lawyers regarding these type of issues?? How is the media privy to this?

Again, Jon and Kate need to keep their personal business private. This is getting insane! Their desire to have one person hated more than the other is crazy. I feel so bad for the Gosselin kids.
What do they expect the public to do other than hate one more than the other? How self-absorbed are these two? What exactly does Kate hope to accomplish by authorizing release of this info. Attorney/client info is privileged unless the client consents to the release. Not sure of the the arrangement with TLC on private matters, but someone is leaking this.

Stop It Kate and Jon. Don't you have any concern with embarassing your children with all of the private matters? Oh I forgot, Kate could care less about how any of this impacts on her kids, loving mother that she is. It's all about Kate, your kids be damned.

I think we're being played said...

Which is more believable--Jon and Kate both found incompetent lawyers (who would allow large amounts of money to hang out in an account accessible by either of them) or that sometimes PR firms plant inflammatory stories to discredit the other side?

amy m said...

What a mess!! Does the saga ever slow down!?! Jon cleaning out the bank account really make me question his stability right now. I know there is so many details behind the story we don't know,but he is really hurting any credibility he has. He is now going to be painted as erratic,and kate as the good parent...therefore she'll probably get whatever she wants in court. I really don't hold out much hope that those kids will be spared filming. Charlie sheen tried to stop his wife from having their girls film and he lost...and that was in cali court! Regardless of any of that though,this show is coming to an end on its own. It has ran its course. What is so sad is that every single detail of this divorce gets drug into the media spotlight,and it just gets nastier by the day. If kate doesn't acknowledge that those poor kids need some therapy,i think i will scream. Does she really think that they have not picked up on all this. They go from having a somewhat functionaing family to finding out that their parents are divorcing,and then to make matters worse,they wont speak to each other now. As i've said before,i will just continue to pray for them,and hope that she gets them back into church and some kind of counseling. I think kate just will always refuse to do that beacause she's afraid of what those kids will tell when they open up about their life.Poor things :(

hankypanky said...

What the hell is Neild doing trotting around in a stretch limo with Kate and the twins to lunch.

Does Steve Neild's body gaurd contract require him to be on duty 24/7. Between Kate traveling for appearances , the filming of the show, daily errand running , getting the kids off the school , concerts, lunches etc... it appears this guy is 'on duty' more often then not. I must say, Steve Neild must have a very forgiving/understanding wife and children for him to spend so much time with another woman and her children. I understand he has a 'job' to do, but his 'services' IMO exceed beyond the 'call of duty'. I wonder how much time Steve Neild spends going to concerts, lunches, resort vacations etc with Kate and her children vs. his own wife and kids? IMO, Steve appears more like Kate's personal escort and 'companion' these days than her professional 'body guard'.

M said...

Something just does not smell right to me. They said on several sites that he left her with $1000, but on other sites, they said he cleaned out the account and Kate did not notice this until she received overdraft notices in the mail from her bank. If he truly did leave her with some money, then why would she get overdraft notices!!!

This whole situation just does not seem right, something's off or the press have truly not been told the whole story.

Something still isn't right said...

Had to post a comment a bank in their area TDbank is having major issues since they converted their system I wonder if that isnt the true story and some one is leaking false info to Radar. I still question why Kates team would leak the info I thought she was taking the high road.

K8TERH8TER said...

Everyone on here needs to take a deep breath and relax! Don't believe all the crap in the tabloids and sites regarding the bank account, etc. (atleast not yet) When something happens within this family, everyone in Reading gets wind of it. It's pretty quiet around here right now, so my guess is it's just hype for attention and upcoming ratings. TLC is hoping we all tune in to see some fireworks between Kate and Jon. Remember the shows were taped eons ago, so nothing that's happening now will be televised anyway. I just wish this madness would end. Those of you who live FAR, FAR away from this saga have no idea how lucky you are. Those of us in Pa. are sooo sick of this family...kids included. PLZ don't watch anymore so this show finally gets cancelled...PLZ!!! All of Pa. BEGS YOU!!!!!

If he left her $1000 and a previously written check went through for more than that, the account would go into overdraft. Jon may have removed the money a week ago and Kate probably didn't find out until a few days later.

Disgusted with it all said...

TMZ has a copy of a letter that Kate's lawyer sent to Jon's lawyer. Apparently Jon's lawyer has advised this before. The letter says that in a former case it was argued to the New York Supreme Court and Jon's lawyer lost. It is inferred that he tells his clients to do this so that his fee would be paid. Whatever the reason it is a bad idea when a court order is already in place that is toprevent this.

"my9cats said...

It's my understanding that a court appointed arbitrator ruled that neither party can remove a large sum without the other's consent. This is because of the divorce proceedings. Going against that is contempt of court.

I hope we're being played said...

Oh my. Jon's lawyer may not even be licensed in the state of Pennsylvania? The letter from Kate's lawyer to Heller seemed to hint that pretty strongly. Oh my. No wonder all the Court of Public Opinion crap. Did Jon step out of the frying pan just to find the fire is roaring away??? Lordy. This sure looks bad.

nanb said...

The bank move was definitely strategic.

A couple of weeks ago there was a report of what did Kate do with I believe $80,000 from TLC. Then low and behold Kate deposited it into trusts for the kids. Thats why the arbitrator put the court order into effect.

Hopefully, Jon did the same thing set up more trust accounts where he is the trustee. Whatever it was, I hope he was listening to his advisors when he did it.

Although when Kate did it, it certainly didn't get nearly as much tabloid coverage.

Anny said...

It's pretty common for one spouse to clean out the assets in an acrimonious divorce. What's hard to understand is why Kate's staff of thousands didn't anticipate this. Her attorney (or attorneys) really dropped the ball on this one.

Whatever Jon took won't remain his - it will be split according to what ever agreement is made in court - but it will mess up Kate's life for sure in the meantime. It's probably going to be a long "meantime".

It's really clear that the only ones who are going to be left with anything are the lawyers - and that's entirely the fault of these two irresponsible and incredibly stupid parents.

Those poor kids. They're really toast. They'll always feel(wrongly!) as if this whole disaster was their fault - and Kate, at least, will probably reinforce that at every turn. She so clearly has no interest in them at all now; once they aren't bringing in the bucks, she'll be out of there so fast it will make their heads spin.

$200,000 in the bank...Yes to the average person, this would be a very comfortable amount of savings..

..but is this really all they've got to show for all of this crazyness? Really? Kate constantly talks about how she has to keep doing the show to support her kids financially. Maybe if she stopped living like a millionaire then she wouldn't have to worry about having 'enough' money. Lose the bodyguards, stop buying new cars and clothes (while the kids wear each others' hand-me-downs), downsize your ridiculously sized home. I mean really, with the way they've been flaunting their money, I thought for sure they'd banked over a million. These kids have been working since they were born. If there is not more than $200,000 in the trust set up for them..then WTF?! What is wrong with these people? ALL OF THEM!!

And then there's this ... Singer blasts Heller, noting that the New York Supreme Court "addressed charges that you violated 'thirty-eight counts alleging multiple violations of the disciplinary rules,' and charges that you 'had engaged in a pattern of misconduct involving misrepresentations, deceit, abusive treatment of clients, fee gouging, neglect and willful failure to return unearned retainers to his clients' in matters which involved your 'mishandling of the matters of twelve separate clients.'" The letter goes on to claim Heller admitted to engaging in "professional misconduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation."

SavetheSheeples said...

I am so, so sick of hearing about these two losers. Their frequent appearances on tv "talk" shows is overkill. Does anyone really care anymore? I don't. I care about the kids, but not them. I haven't watched the show in weeks. It's boring.

These shows need to stop booking J&K as guests. TLC must be paying them to do it. I can't see any other reason whey they would agree to it, unless their presence seriously boosts their ratings.

This whole situation just makes me ill. J&K's divorce has gotten very nasty, and it is plainly obvious that TLC is doing all they can to help Kate. They probably provided her with divorce lawyers.

scgal said...

What is very telling is several comments made since this whole split started...regarding the monies supposedly put in trust for the kids.

Just this morning kate said "she" has put away money for the kids, which would mean it was only recently done...if she did it alone.
I firmly believe that these supposed funds are paltry and just for show.
Jon and Kate, if what Jon said was true(show fee)would of spent the bulk of monies on cars alone.

I hope the state of pa doesnt drop the ball on the investigation.
Cause.....i bet there is less than 10 thousand in these trusts for each child.
Cars, 2 homes, private schools, the cost of running both homes, clothes, jewelry.....it doesnt add up.
Heck, the Starbucks bill alone each month is probably over a thousand dollars.

They need to sell that ridiculously big "estate" which they do not need or use. They live on maybe 5% of the land, and the rest just sits there, losing money day by day. The house is just a big white elephant and a money usurper, and is worth over a million dollars, even in this economy. Plus they pay the monthly cost on the Etown house which is wasting away there empty.
Stupid, uneducated people who want to live large, but its only living for the moment.

That is it. I'm done with the damn View. I purposely did not listen to Hate's Today interview. I will not watch tonight to see Jon crucified. I did not want to see anymore of this. Then they put Hate on the phone this morning while I was watching the View. It made me sick. Sherri is such an IDIOT. Lisa Ling is the only one of them with a brain. I wish she'd have stayed on! It is unbelievable they think if you have 8 kids you need to do reality tv and that it is normal to only have some kind of checking account where all your bills are paid from, for only a quarter of a million after all their years of scamming and selling their kids!

UniStudent said...

So I've managed to not watch anything regarding these two clowns in several months, however this morning I'm home sick and have sunk to the low of watching the view, because I was excited to see Lisa Ling back as a guest. Well KON came up of course, and they just happened to have a phone call from Kate. After the usual BS, mostly about the money situation, Lisa piped in with what any of us would have said. She commented that having gone through her parents messy divorce at the age of 7 she thought that having all that pain filmed couldn't be healthy. The other co-hosts jumped in saying that they have to make a living. Lisa gave the logical answer that there are other ways to make a living than putting your kids on TV. Well what do you know rather than everyone discussing her logical point, she was cut off by Barbara and the entire topic was dropped.

I'm a media commumications student and we learn in class just how much what we see and hear through the media is controlled by corporate interests. this situation just drove that point home, because everyone else seemed to be working from rehearsed pro Kate questions while Lisa actually used her brain, but was of course quieted.

You're right on!! I had the unfortunate experience of tuning into the View this morning. It is clear that B.Walters and company are in Kate's and TLC's pockets for some reason.

I am so proud of Lisa. I was going to post a comment on the View's website, but realized that is just a waste of time. They clearly have their own agenda regarding Kate.... we may find out later what that is.... corporate greed probably.

Instead I posted a comment on Lisa's website commending her for her integrity and good judgement. Several others have as well. I encourage others to do so too. We need to encourage those in the media who stick their neck out for these children to give our support. Lisa was the 8's voice today, even though Barbara was visibly uncomfortable with it and trying to shut her up. It didn't though. You rock Lisa!!

Nancy in CA said...

I really hope Khate doesn't think the public is this stupid to believe they only had $200K in the bank. I'm sure that was just one account. I'm almost positive that she has a corporation account for the residuals, book deals, TV appearances, etc. I'm sure they are both contractually obligated not to disclose to the public how much they truly are making. She is trying to gain public sympathy, plain and simple.

These kids cannot make a grown up decision and I am positive they are not sobbing over not filming. They are probably sobbing because Khate is going off the deep end screaming at anything and everyone. I'm sure she is telling the kids that they will be left on the streets if they can't film and it scares the living daylights out of the kids.

So was she filming the Today show in PA via remote or was she on the couch in NY. Who's with the kids?

Kate said (during her interview) that Jon has withdrawn $230K since Aug 10, but she also claimed that she got an overdraft notice this weekend about this large withdrawal. She's lying somewhere. If it is TD Bank (Major bank in Penna.) they have been screwing up customer accts (merged with another bank) and are reimbursing customers and sending out letters of apology like crazy for over a week now. Poor Jon needs a Public Relation expert. She is the typical "MEAN GIRL" she drove him to react back in Feb 09, and now she AND TLC are going to DESTROY HIM no matter what he does they are going to make him the "village idiot" We all know the phase NICE GUYS FINISH LAST - Thanks what happens when you deal with The Learning Channel - They used to film animal attacks now they do it with humans.

momof5 said...

On People.com Kate says she would work at Mcdonalds to feed her kids & that she is going to buy a new ring with 8 diamonds & a mother of pearl in the middle because the kids "suggested" it. Where can I get my $1000 ring with real gems? ;)

SavetheSheeples said...

I am sick to death of J&K running to the media every time they have a problem. As if anyone really gives a sh*t anymore!! They are being made fun of on several shows on tv - SNL was the last one I noticed (their recent season premiere, during the "Weekend update" segment). Not to mention The Soup on a weekly basis..

It's serious overkill, and their poor kids have to put up with this crap. I can't take it anymore...I stopped watching the show, and now I have to endure these two appearing on any show that will take them to "tell their side".

Hey, Jon and Kate, guess what? NOBODY CARES!! Bye!!

Ugh. I feel a little bit better.

jasmine said...

Wow, just read an article in the Huffington Post. Jon claims there is $2,250,000 in accounts and that Kate is hiding more money from her books, another $1,000,000.

bcsurvivor2001 said...

OK - it's statements like these that make me scrath my head....."Kate Gosselin’s lawyer filed papers Monday morning at Montgomery County Court in Pennsylvania in a bid to get back the $230,000 taken from her account by estranged husband Jon."

HER ACCOUNT? Why is this money Her's? In a JOINT account. Last I saw they were stil married - so any logical reason why the money is her's and not his?????

Can someone please explain this to me?

Boy oh boy - and we all thought she was JUST going on the Today show to one-up Mr. G from LKL last week. Wrong...........

Here is a link to Lisa Ling's website:

We need to tell her the great job she did this morning on the View.


Done! I went there and told Lisa what a fine job she did on The View today. The only voice of reason! I loved the suggestion that another poster made about Lisa doing a story/documentary on the exploitation of children on reality shows. I hope she does it!

Go Away said...

Here's the link to the document Jon's lawyer sent to Kate's lawyers (note plural) that is on eonline.com.

Wow, just read an article in the Huffington Post. Jon claims there is $2,250,000 in accounts and that Kate is hiding more money from her books, another $1,000,000.
___________________________________Jon was quoted as saying they MADE $2,250,000 from the show... after taxes that probably wasn't more than 1.2 million or so. Still a huge chunk of change, but not enough to sustain a family of that size for more than 5 years in normal circumstances. Lawyers fees (high powered attorneys, with what I'm sure are incredibly large fees), private school x 8, two homes, etc. Now I understand they get additional income from books, speaking engagements, appearances, etc, but even so, they are going to have to come up with something great and new to market or scale WAY back lifestyle-wise to make it through the next 10-15 years (until the kids are safely in college).

2-3 million dollars may sound huge to some of us, but in the real world that is upper middle class, nothing more. What seems extravagant to a middle class person is just enough to get by for this group of people. Cost of living goes up. Expectations increase. And you can't blame someone for wanting/getting more than you, but you CAN blame them for bitching when it starts to fade away.

He is MAD as Hell said...

Jon never took the money. He was just on the air to say that he was fit to be tied, that Kate lied so badly on the Today show that he had to come forward. He had the bank receipt where he withdrew $22,000 last week for living expense and said that Kate has 11 BANK accts. with over 3 million dollars in them and he hasn't seen a dime of it because she hides it and keeps it for herself. He said "where's the 2 million she made from the book, she said that was all hers too. A little shocking

GoNancyGo said...

loved watching Jon get skewered by Nancy Grace. I'd pay to see more of that. Throw Kate in there too. As a general rule I can't stand Nancy Grace, but that was fantastic. I was listening to a radio show this morning and they were polling people of what celeb they would taser if they got the chance. Some people said Speidi, Kanye, etc, but the host said he couldn't choose between Jon and Kate! Made me laugh.

As a side note, the kids seem happy with the Nanny, relaxed. A lot of people have nannies who raise their kids because they are too busy working. Not a choice I'd make, but many people do. At least it looks like they chose someone the kids are comfortable with. And the fact that she has stuck with the Gosselins for a year+ says a lot about her character and commitment to the kids. Or at least the size of her paycheck.

Erin said...

Radar has a video of the nanny getting the Gosselin kids off the school bus. It was so sad. Nanny getting kids off bus, while parents fight on national tv over money. Yeah, that not damaging to them. Totally healthy.

Di said...

I just read that Kate will be on Access Hollywood tonight.

No the nanny is not good said...

Did someone just say a LOT of people use NANNIES?? AND the kids seemed comfortable with the new nanny? Are we seeing the same photos? Shes yanking Collins arm in one, and ALL the kids are crying. Also, the nanny is picking the children up from the schoolbus for TWO PARENTS that DON'T WORK. Sometimes I can't believe what I read here.

Why berate Jon? said...

Why would someone say they liked seeing Jon getting skewed? He was the ONLY one who did the right thing. Lets not lose sight of the forest from the trees folks.
It was Jon that stopped the show.

Alice Blue Gown said...

The nanny taking the twins to the bus or to school is smiling, and the twins even seem to be smiling. How nice to think the kids are with someone they love and who loves them too.

What was so enjoyable about this. She is a bully, just like Khate. Nancy Grace has joined the long line of adults using the Gosseling 8 for their own gain. She made a fool out of herself being verbally abusive towards Jon...but her name is all over the press...

She's come undone said...

I am praying that the judge today issues a gag order and shuts Kate up. This would kill her because we all know she has the gift of the gab - NOT. Actually she has the gift of ignorance. As much as I've enjoyed seeing Jon act like a man lately, I would LOVE for these two not to be able to talk about all this crap. I bet they would just fade away.

How do WE know said...

Please lets not start with the nanny now, about the kids LOVE her and she LOVES the kids. NO one knows that at all for sure.

--------------------
I saw her interviewed on Access Hollywood a long time ago when they showed "outtakes." Mady was quite vocal. Billy Bush stared right into the camera and gave "a look." I don't think he likes Kate at all. Or shall I say I bet he has an opinion about the Gosselins...whether or not it will filter through. I haven't watched this show in a long time and they seem to have a different, wilder format but, well, I might just tune in. The "counters" don't have to know WHY I'm viewing for the half hour...for all they know I'm watching to hear more about Letterman, no?

JON GO$$ELIN HACK ATTACK

Photo by: splash news online

Jon Gosselin used his computer skills to hack into his wife Kate's e-mail, online bank accounts and cell phone, and he smoked marijuana at the family home while watching their kids!

Those blockbuster charges are being leveled against the former star of Jon & Kate Plus 8 by his ex-girlfriend and family baby sitter in an exclusive ENQUIRER interview.

Stephanie Santoro also reveals that Jon plans to demand alimony from Kate, and says he caught on to his estranged wife's affair with her married bodyguard Steve Neild.

Stephanie, a single mom and aspiring model, got to know Jon while she was working as a cocktail waitress at his regular hangout, Legends nightclub near the Gosselin family estate in Wernersville, Pa.

"Jon told me that he hacked into pretty much everything of Kate's," Stephanie, 24, told The ENQUIRER. "He had access to her online banking, and he put a trace on every single one of her e-mails.

"Anytime she'd get an e-mail or send one, he'd get a copy of it. Besides that, he knows every single thing she does online, and every text message she gets or receives."

Computer savvy Jon - who once worked as an information technology specialist for the state of Pennsylvania - also claimed to have bugged Kate's cell phone, said Santoro.

"Every time Kate used her phone, Jon would know who she was talking to, and what they were saying. He always bragged that he had access to everything in Kate's life, and that he was going to use it against her," said Stephanie.

Things like THAT help when you're having a nasty divorce AND cleaning out a bank account!

The Teflon Broad said...

Ah yes, reward the idiot of the day (today's idiot is Kate) with an appearance on Jay Leno. She'll make a guest appearance on Wednesday, but whether Access Hollywood meant tonight or next week, I'm not sure. How would it be possible tonight? Isn't she supposedly back home after her NY trip?

Midnight Serenade said...

"AND the kids seemed comfortable with the new nanny? Are we seeing the same photos? Shes yanking Collins arm in one, and ALL the kids are crying."

She's not the new nanny. She's Kate's friend who is visiting from Michigan.

livnluv said...

Stephanie Santoro's claims are over the top! Why didn't she say all this when she alleged she slept with Jon? She must be extorting more money from the tabs. Time to pay the rent, Steph? Boy I'd like for someone to subpoena HER bank account.

livnluv said...

tsk, tsk, tsk....all these interviews for kate. Those TLC tenacles reach far and wide don't they. Jay Leno, I'm surprised. You're scraping the bottom of the barrel.

8POE's said...

To Cara&Madelyn
Let me start w/Happy Birthday! It's been a challenging 9yrs thus far. I can't even begin to understand what you have to cope with but let me tell you some things that you need to hear.

What has to be so, so difficult is your parents getting divorced. Then it's so public. Also, having to hear about it, read about it, see it on TV, see it on the internet doesn't help.

Reading this blog can be alot like what I just mentioned but w/this difference, those of us here care very much about all you kids. You'll see us be quite harsh w/your parents and that's hard but we're harsh w/them because we care about YOU.

You'll hear from some that we don't care and we're mean and we're jealous of your parents and things like that. The TRUTH is, we all care about the 8 in the title very much. We're your support group. We understand your situation and we want to fix it.

You kids have to be loyal to each other. Only the 8 of you know what this is like. Don't fight w/each other, be good to each other. There will be differences and disagreemants but settle them w/out violence. You kids will be close all your life. You "Band of Children" MUST be loyal to each other.

Being the oldest, it's going to be harder for you then the 6. Seek help. NOONE expects you to do this alone. Form a bond w/God, a teacher, establish a relationship w/your grandparents. You have the opposite of what I did. I had 1/4 gp's and she was on the west coast. You have 3/4 and they're close.

Finally, NONE of this is your fault. NEVER think that it is. You are not to blame for ANYTHING. You have about 9yrs to go living w/your parents. Find a way to cope w/them. They love you but they're just messed up. They made bad choices and now it's gotten away from them.

New or Old, still Nanny said...

Jamie might not be the "NEW" nanny, but she's the NANNY of the 'moment'. Same thing.

Ms.Peach said...

I think I previously posted on this thread that Kate did a guest spot on Leno. I assumed she was in LA yesterday. However, it was a video spoof that aired last night on Leno that could have been filmed anytime. Go to TMZ.com to watch. I think the airing of it by Leno at this particular time was a jab at Kate, plus TMZ is pissed.

In regards to the Stephanie Santoro claims, she must be on TLC's payroll, so they are using her to blast Jon. Stand by for the tabloids to come out today with all the dirt.

cheryl said...

The Ayers are good friends at the moment - that too will change. It
appears she is getting too close for
comfort too soon.
Beware of K - she is sabotaging J
re the two hr BD party. Had an ex who would say one thing, do the complete opposite.
Thx Mods for your support.
Somehow this has to end, stop -
hopefully, without violence.

Don't Squeeze the Charmin said...

Kate on Leno was kinda lame. I was shocked she actually has a sense of humor. I'm sure she was paid well for that spoof.

She's such a dumb ass bitch!!

bcsurvivor2001 said...

Man - just when I thought ONE of them was finally giving it to us semi-straight.........I read the headlines that ET will stream Jon's arrival home tonight

How disappointing.......let those 2 little girls have ONE private moment in their public lives - on their special day. PLease?????

Button Button said...

HLN Show Business Tonight actually starting to set the record straight. Kate is losing the sympathy vote and tonight's reporters got most of the facts right. Thank Goodness!

Leno Appearance said...

Kate Gosselin hops on the sinking liferaft of the Jay Leno Show.

It was worse than a high school talent show skit.

Not. Good. Acting. By anyone. They all looked like they wanted out.

She really must want a showbiz career in the worst way; appearing in a sad spoof while her personal life falls apart on all the other channels.

I feel so sorry for this family.

Mike R. said...

No wonder Leno's ratings are in the tank, that was stupid, not even in the least bit funny.

MomofFour said...

Actually, NBC in general is scraping the bottom of the barrel with Jay Leno. This network is headed for its demise if Leno does not pull in the ratings. They are banking on it literally. Because of its far-left agenda it is the lowest rated network on TV. So it's no surprise they are dragging the bottom of the mud pond with Kate Gosselin.

MomofFour said...

I hope people are realizing now what a fraud the media is in general. Hollywood is not real. The media is not real. This is all about money. Nobody cares if Kate is a scum bag. They want to make money. They would sell their own mother's if they thought it would help their ratings and make them money. Do not be fooled by ANYTHING or ANYBODY on TV. The more unbelievable it is...the better. We sit at home and gasp "How can they side with Kate?" and you watch every single thing you can get your hands on because you can't "believe" it. Yeah...that's EXACTLY what they hope you'll do. Every letter you send to whoever it is you're trying to persuade not to believe Kate is laughing all the way to the bank. It's a number. How many letters do they get? that's the number they want. They could care less if it is pro or con. It's the number of letters that matters. People need to realize that morals aren't really an issue here. There are none...lol. So turn off your TV and stop buying the magazines...listen to some music. That's how you get them to go away. Unfortunately, that's not going to happen.

A friend pointed this out to me recently. They do it with politics, too. We always blame the politicians for being partisan and all...it's the media! The liberals do it...the right does it...the more "unbelievable" it is the better. It's all just a way for them to make money. Just look at this blog. You guys bounce around to all the media outlets sharing stories and videos and opinions...click..click..click. They track that. They love it. It makes them money. Stop caring and they will go away.

bcsurvivor2001 said...

Momof4 - EXCELLENT post and explanation. I totally 100% agree with every word you speak.

I was just thinking this the other day - is there ANYTHING real left in the media-world at all?

Jersey said...

To those of you speculating on why Kate's eyes look different in a couple of the photos of Kate and the twins with Steve at lunch on the SoSugary site .....could it be because it's not coffee in that cup she's holding??? I'm just sayin'....

livnluv said...

I agree also momof4, but what I find depressing is that media will NEVER go away because people will ALWAYS watch. On some levels state, national and international information is necessary. And then they slip to garbage in there. I guess it's like everything else...in moderation.

Leno is just about done said...

Jay Leno came in DEAD LAST in ratings last night and on tv it said if he doesn't pick up ratings by the end of the month, he's off.
They KNOW that Kate's controversy is big viewer draw and they USE her to build up ratings. I will not watch a single program attached to their name.

Thanks said...

Thanks for posting about the Jay Leno sketch. I don't watch TV so I never would have known about it. My kids and I have watched it twice already and everyone thinks it is SO funny!

bcsurvivor2001 said...

4:32 EST - TMZ has a live stream on their website - NOT ET. It's totally ridiculous. Dozens of people milling around - dozens of cameras, cars, etc all outside the fence.

Wonder of wonders - media circus at it's best

Melody said...

I don't think NBC is suffering because of it being Far Left and I say this as moderate and as someone who works in the online media section of another Network

NBC was the #1 Network for almost 15 years. The loss of Friends and other series they tried to introduce has been hard on them. Its cyclical.

They will end up on top again and ABC or CBS will be at the bottom. Or even FOX. It just happens.


The Kate skit on Leno was a HUGE mistake and I'm hearing they have received alot of complaints.

# One, nine straight years said...

Melody. Wity all due respect. Fox
has been #1 in ratings for nine straight years with Bill O'reilly having double and triple the other channels. MSNBC is on the bottom of the heap and CNN is 10th and 11th.
The top 9 news channels were all Fox, and killed the competition in ratings on ALL time slots. Check Cable Ratings. Its all spelled out.

8POE's said...

I actually meant to put my last post in Free Discussion. Since this one's related to it, I'll put it here. Remember when the twins turned 7? Kate was baking them a cake just before they got home. I thought this odd as she had all day but I digress.

I was remembering when Mady got home, she was po'd. She marched in and kicked a balloon out of her way. Kate told us she comes home that way at least a couple times a week. Kate also didn't seem to know how to deal w/it. Go figure.

Um,Kate,it could be she um, was that um, way, um because she came home to um, a film crew and um, it was um, her b.d. and she wasn't um, happy about them being there and um, was mad about it and um, when she comes home like that um, it might be um, a clue she's not happy um, about you know, um, filming.

I understand this would never occur to you so maybe someone will pass it along. You would think that bd's would be pvt but then what is to Kate beside what Kate's doing.

Cara got an ATV? Not the best choice for a 9-year-old IMO. Adults get hurt on ATV's all the time. Cara having one concerns me a bit. They flip easily. Then there's running into things. She doesn't have the most safety concious parents so it's troubling.

grannyoftwo said...

whats new here? nothing except the fact that the nannies do 95% of the work, I figured they did 100%. Probably more like 99%.

Megan said...

Melody - thanks for your insights!!


#one 9 straight years - there are different ways of viewing the ratings. by week, month, year, time slot,age group etc. Don't believe everything Bill and Glenn tell you. For example - msnbc's primetime lineup is #1 with younger viewers (wow, shocking). Anyways.....


Let's stick to the topic at hand - freeing the Gosselin 8 from being exploited by their parents and TLC.

She kicks and throws said...

It was just reported by a close source to Kate (maybe an ex-sitter)
that she was prone to fits of rage and kicking and throwing things, and the kids are "terrified" of her, and can't wait for Jon to come.

*****

How about setting up rules about when Cara can ride it?

Only on days that your parents are getting along with each other or,

Only on days your Mom plays with the boys for a whole uninterrupted hour, or,

Only on days your Dad leaves his cell phone back in NYC, or,

Only on days your Mom stays home with all of you without any help whatsoever from anybody.

In other words, Cara would never be on the thing. She's safe.

livnluv said...

Sorry, I don't see what's so humorous about Jon's interview and his interest in the Jewish faith. I found his comments quite honest and sincere. Jon is trying to get his children off TV and keep them from being exploited by TLC and their mom. Certainly he's made mistakes but at least he's trying to do the right thing by his kids. He loves them and they are all going through a terrible period in their lives. These kids need at least one parent fighting for them and it's sure not kate. She's been brainwashed by TLC and it makes me sick how they're willing to sacrifice the childhood of these kids for nothing but money.

Jon's trying to navigate a terrible situation; healing after years of abuse, fighting corporate business, dealing with a mentally ill soon-to-be ex wife, finding a job and most importantly, being a dad and protecting his children, all at the same time. He said he's doing web design work...I'm sure someone will find something wrong with that too. Kate IS publicly throwing him under the bus and yet very few have much to say about that.

I don't know, maybe it's time for me to go away and get some fresh air. I just had to get this off my chest. I'm just tired of reading how Jon is so awful, in the tabloids, editorials and blogs. I think somehow we've lost sight of the real problem here and that's the willingness of TV and society to condone the exploitation of minors. Hopefully we can get back to what's really important here.
