October 5, Time to Organize

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

Wow. What an interesting topic. Kate straightens out her basement.

If only the episode was called Kate straightens out her priorities.

heehaw said...

Could this get any more boring?

Mona said...

I thought she already did clear out the basement. She got rid of Jon. Isn't she happy yet?

Snerk said...

Yeah, I think next week goes for round three on a recycled plot - back to school. Really folks, we've all seen it over and over with our own children where it was actually interesting to us. I have zero interest in seeing these kids head off to school again. But they may show whatever they wish as I've quit watching.

Tami said...

See, Sheeple? Kate has ALWAYS needed someone else's help to organize. She is incompetent. Oh and lazy.

mlou said...

How hard is it to organize paper towels and Juicy Juice?

How hard is it to organize paper towels and Juicy Juice?

Probably not too hard to do the actually organizing. But there's lots of ways to organize and it takes so long to decide! By color, alphabetical order, size of paper towels and number of sheets, degree of difficulty involved in removing resulting juice stains, number of eyerolls induced by the horrendously horrendousness of the designs on the paper towels...

damn, that's some hardcore dullness right there.

Hannah said...

kate always says she is super organized, but in their old house her closet and kitchen drawers always looked messy. Wouldnt a truly oraganized person be able to keep a tidy closet and kitchen, even with the large family and the lack of space? I don't think she really is all that oraginzed.

Snark said...

I wish I could afford a professional organizer. How is this reflecting the life of an "ordinary" and "single" mom. Many single mothers are just trying to keep afloat and to have the luxury of hiring someone to help you get an overabundance of possessions organized is a laugh.

sigh. sigh. sigh.

Will not be watching. Not now. Not ever again.

just wondering said...

Kate doesn't organize.. Kate hires (gets to do it for free) people to do this for her...

How is she ever going to accomplish this without good old Beth???

Krazy Kate can't even read a freaking tape measure!!

just wondering said...

Difficult to keep things organized when you DON'T ACTUALLY LIVE there!!

What an organizer said...

She might not be a good organizer, but look how well she did on taking down the sign. Kate, very good, very independent of you. And how well you "organized" your thoughts to stop your SUV right in front of the sign like that. You are SO amazing.

Melissa said...

What *is* there to organize? Khate is so anal, I can't imagine there's even a dust bunny or a case of free Juicy Juice not alphabetically organized.

Jaden's Mom said...

Oh my gosh, could this get any more boring? Wow...they are really scraping the bottom of the barrel on this one. I hope the ratings continue to tank, and they finally get this show off of life support and bury it.

Tired of K8 said...

Snoozefest... so all the people excited about the drama in their real life will tune into this type of show and increase ratings?

Yeah, right. Dream on TLC. I really doubt your numbers will be going up Monday.

Brummygirl said...

I really must set my timer to watch this episode...err...wait a minute..I don't have a basement!! Never mind, I am sure I can pick up some really good tips here!! NOT!!!!
There are enough makeover shows on the H.G.T.V. channel where they actually know what they are doing!
Hope there are some really big *icky* spiders down there!!!

Juicy said...

I never believe Kate is that organized because her old house was very cluttered.

Tami said...

It's not a matter of organizing things so much as having a ton of space to store the stuff in the first place. If you live in a big mansion it is easy to store your stuff. The only things I'm interested in organizing and storing are my kids' toys. Those are all over because we just don't have the space. How can the average person relate to seeing Hate and her professional organizer put 100 bins up on shelves hin her huge house? I am lucky to cram some bins with camping equipment and holiday decorations out in the garage. I don't need someone to come help me figure this out. I just put Christmas stuff in red and green bins, Halloween in orange bins, etc. Duh.

MomOf4InPA said...

Wow... Her "one-true love". Not her husband, or her kids, or even the not-a-bodyguard, but the labelmaker. The woman is pathetic.

Lauren said...

I wonder which sponsor will help with the organizational type furniture. Ikea, perhaps.

Kate doesn't organize that is Karla's job. How stupid do they think we are?

Maggie said...

NO ANONYMOUS COMMENTS! Some great ones coming in, but please re-submit with a name.

Maggie said...

We have had this episode already! Kate and Beth (remember her, former bff) went to IKEA and got all organized! IIRC, Kate forgot her checkbook, and Beth had to pay? Anyone else remember?

I bet Beth is waiting for that payback!

KatesBigFlintstoneToe said...

This organization show probably tie-in with her new TLC show in the works. Kate will teach everyone how to organize from stealing ideas from her professional organizer, along with cooking/baking segments with all her stolen recipes.

LIC said...

Entertainment Weekly's capsule of the show ...

During basement-cleanup day, Kate and the kids find old boxed-up memories, half of which Jon can pick up on the lawn later.

Haha!

pinkdiamond611 said...

Just another example of "Can't Do Khate" not being able to do anything on her own. If she was the "super organized" person she claims to be, she wouldn't need a professional organizer, would she?

Aunt Chris said...

Loved how the commercial shows her writing "Jon" on a box. I thought she threw out all of his stuff when they left E-town. Didn't one of the tups say "why are you throwing out Daddy's stuff?" Maybe she was putting his balls in the box, having kept them around just to tease him with.

XYZed said...

So, basically this is a show about a woman arranging sock drawers while her children's lives are in a shambles.

Talk about not seeing the forest for the trees.

my9cats said...

Wasn't this already done when Kate and Beth went to Ikea looking for stuff to organize the Etown house?

Just give it up said...

Who cares about her personal organizer, which, by the way was paid for by TLC so they can come up with a recycled show. How boring. GIVE IT UP.

stopthemadness said...

She gotr rid of 190 pounds of unecessary junk just recently when she kicked Jon to the curb. That should count fore her part, now the kdis can throw away all those toys they got for free and didn't want and don't play with. What else is down there?

Back to school was exciting - end of August. We've been in school now for 5-6 weeks. Isn't it time to almost let your kids have fun carving pumpkins? While you stand over their dad who has to do them all, while you hassle him about how YOU cannot "handle" the "mess" and then force a clean up mid way through, just in case your husband and kids were having fun and getting to be on camera?

I'd actually wantch the Duggars not celebrity the Devil's holiday than watch kate f* it up for her kids.

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

Exactly. We will now watch kate organize deck chairs on the Titanic.


Can they be possibly floating the idea of her next "project" with some of these episodes? Will she do a talk show like the View or Paulas? No, not interesting or quick witted enough. Will she cook? No, she's an idiot. Will she have a Home Made Simple or some other How To show? I'd rather see her giving people tips like "throw away things you don't use" and "put Xmas decorations in red and green bins" than harrassing guests or her family. Some sheeple out there would LOVE to have Kate come in and tell them how to run their life. If she could BEAR the ickiness of someone else's mess and dirty impoverished (compared to hers) home.

Steve could be her co host and stand between her and the families who have her on so she doesn't have to encounter their germs and generally unworthiness.

stopthemadness said...

How to organize by Kate:

First exploit your kids for years denying them a normal life, and get paid for that.

Next buy a mansion so you've got room for all the free crap you beg for.

Lastly, hire a staff of about 20. Between everything else they do for you you ought to have time to make the weighty decision on what kind of storage solutions you want.

Oh, and if you actually shop for it yourself, take a friend and forget your wallet, she'll be too well brought up to harrass you for payment - after all you are letting her author a book yfor which you will take credit and the proceeds.

Ohio Buckeye said...

Since one of K8's alleged fortes is organizational skills, one wonders why the need for an 'expert' to help her organize.

Could this show possibly get any more ridiculous and pathetic?

If they want to start calling in 'experts' to help poor, lonely, brave, beleaguered, and CLUELESS K8, why not call in a Psychiatrist (non-Hollywood type)? Now THERE's an expert the woman could definitely use.

Snap! said...

Kate always had notes posted everywhere in the house so that the 'helpers' and Jon knew how to do things her way. Organization is key- as Kate would say. So Jon finally decides to take charge and just like Kate would- puts a sign outside the gate. What is Kate's reaction?- She removes the sign and throws it on the ground. I wish Jon would have removed all the notes in the house- thrown them on the floor and said to Kate- we know how to take care of the kids- do laundry and make coffee Kate- no more notes!
Now an episode that I won't watch showing how Kate can organize! Woohoo- none of us have ever thought to organize our houses- glad Kate can show us how!!

Geema said...

I wish I had a TV shiow because they could film me cleaning out my refrigerator this morning. If they wanted me to, I would gladly hawk Bounty paper towels and Hefty trash bags!

Ohio Buckeye said...

Maggie said..............
Yes! I was still watching back then and I DO remember that episode. Remember when K8 went over to a big, long kitchen counter display at IKEA and kinda' laid over it, saying something like she wished this was hers?

Retrospectively we now know this was just a Preview of Coming Attractions when K8, in her new mansion did the same thing at the mansion kitchen window that overlooks the acreage, greedily saying, 'mine, all mine!' - a clear contradiction to her mantra about the house being 'just for the kids - they deserve it'.

The woman is Lies on Legs. Ugh.

And if K8 has always been SO organized all this time, why, even back then, did she forget her checkbook? THIS is 'organized'? "Contradictions K8" ought to be her stage name.

And, yes, I'm sure Beth is still wating for K8's repayment. "My check is in the mail, Beth." Sure, K8. That check is in the mail about as much as you are 'a high road taker,' . Sure, you bet.

jojow said...

Wait a minute...I thought SHE was the expert.

You know, if they billed this like this, "with the help of an expert, Kate shares organizing tips that viewers can use at home", it might have a chance in hell at being interesting. Kind of like the Sara Snow episode which had some good ideas.

Otherwise, what is the viewer supposed to take away from this? Watching someone clean? How boring.

Carrin said...

I think it is a good thing that the episodes are getting so pathetically pathetic. People will lose interest at a greater pace!

Angie said...

They're making it so easy to keep up the boycott. Normally when I boycott something there is a part of me that kind of misses whatever it is that I'm boycotting. But since I've been boycotting this show (which I started in early June) there hasn't been one episode that sounded even remotely interesting. So thank you TLC, for making it so easy for me to not watch.

Lucy said...

The only manual job Khate has done all by herself since birthing those babies is to tear down that sign Jon put up on their fence warning TLC of trespass! Even Steve-o her (cough, cough, bulls*) bodyguard is there to hold her purse and Starbucks and all those other manual duties Jon boy used to do. TLC is just not investing anymore creative ideas or money into this sinking ship.

_________________

Actually the way it happened was that Kate couldn't find her wallet and went into a huge panic while Beth went to check in the car and found it there and came back into Ikea holding it up. I've noticed that everyone she befriends becomes her "sidekick" while she is the star!

Yes, I remember that episode and even wrote about it on the Free Discussion last week.

However, I don't think Beth is waiting for Kate to pay her back.
They found the wallet. Even so, my bet is TLC picked up the tab.

What I rembember most was Kate not looking at all concerned about her wallet (I'd be frantic!) and just kept pushing her cart around the store. She knew somebody would pay her bill for her.

So, here we go again. Maybe when they move out of the Mansion she will take her new organizing tools with her. They left the ones Beth helped her buy at the E-town house.

She's come undone said...

I don't watch anyway, but if I ever lowered myself to watch a show about a woman who squeals like a pig over a label maker I want someone to kick me. I hope this show tanks even further and let me apologize up front, but I have my doubts about anyone who watches this.

Or rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. This show is going down, but they want it all nice and organized when it does.

Addison said...

Goody. I can't wait not to watch it.

Arranging sock, house on fire said...

Or like I had a teacher way back when, and he wanted us to to see priorites in life and he'd say.
"Don't be outside mowing the lawn and tidying up, when the house is on fire." I said to myself that's Kate. Sock drawers, indeed.

Not watching said...

Don't forget not to watch. That's what my daughter said.

Elizabeth said...

with all her millions how could she get so excited about getting a cheap label maker(saw it on an ad:refuse to watch the show). said she's always wanted one. I guess asymmetrical hair-don'ts were more important.

sky said...

It's not like they run out of ideas. It's the kids getting older. That's all.

The older episodes are not about anything spectacular, either. It's the kids were innocent back then,that made a big difference.

When they were cute, innocent, and small, we watched them eat yogurt and we liked it. Now they are jaded and mouthy, their eyes only brighten up when they are given over the top toys. It's really sad. It's no longer fun to watch.

There's plenty of jaded children talking like adults on TV, and a lot of them actually have acting and performing training. If I want to watch jaded children, I would prefer to watch the ones who can really perform and want to perform not the ones who just sit there and expect getting a luxury trip or new toy today.

AnneMarie said...

re the label maker.

REALLY Kate? It's the missing love of your life? What have you done without it?

Well honey, they've been around since at least the early 60s!

What hasn't been around you is your own paid for, beck-and-call, professional organizer. A label maker does NOT make you organized. It just labels the crap.

Pamela Jaye said...

well, I hope the sponsor isn't Rubbermaid or 3M cause I actually like those 2 companies.

It's odd that Kate, who was far better at organizing her babies' bottles and leaving the feeding to the volunteers (the ones who could endure her rules - I got the book from the library) suddenly has forgotten how to do all that non-parenting housework that she used to put off spending time with her kids to do. (cook, sweep, cook, sweep - who sweeps the kitchen floor three times a day? (I mean unless you have birds, or ducks - who like to fling their food)

That is perfect! And don't forget: Boo-hoo and sob on every morning show around that IT'S SO HARD TO BE A SINGLE MOM AND I DO WHAT I CAN TO GET BY.

Who on earth is buying this load of bull?? Hello, View-ladies? Today show? Any other naive "news" outlets out there?

I don't know...some therapists agree that the best thing you can do for a child in *transition* is to keep things as normal as possible. So doing the everyday at-home type things makes them feel more secure.

I can see how organizing and putting things away in a dedicated space could make a kid in this situation think "Things are getting put away and organized...looks like we're staying permanently."

stopthemadness said...

I remember a line from a Hemingway novel about how one of his characters went bankrupt: "First slowly, then all at once." (The Sun Also Rises)

They'll make it, their $$, the same way they'll lose it - first slowly, then all at once.

Will Kate organize slowly, or all at once?!? The agony of not knowing is so bearable.

Like Addison said; I can hardly wait to not watch.

stopthemadness said...

I'm guessing yes.
We'll just have to not watch to find out!

Sassypaws said...

Every time I think of Kate and her OCD, it leads me to remember the advise my mother shared with me on child rearing. She always told me, "Your kids won't remember if your house was spotless all the time but they will remember if you had time to spend with them each day."

So instead of scrubbing the floors everyday, I chose play with my kids. We always had a lot of fun together (and still do). Those are real memories and they were made right in our home.

Claire said...

This label maker could be a godsend for the nannies/babysitters, cooks, housekeepers, gardeners, pool boy et al.

She can make instruction labels for all of them and plaster them throughout the house, garage, barn, patio, etc.

This way she won't even have to speak to the help, yuckie people, and better yet, the help won't have to listen to her. And it MAY keep her busy enough that she can stay out of the news for a day or so.

Call me the pitchman said...

Family Game Night last week? Rhapsodizing over a label maker this? At least Billy Mays let us know he was shilling.

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

The thing is, K8 DID have instructions ALL OVER THE (former) HOUSE for the myriad of help - where each kids sits, each child's cubby for dirty laundry, how to make her coffee (yes, she really did have these directions written down for Jon to follow as SHE slept in while HE was getting ready to go to work each morning), etc, etc. The sheeple think that she has been the do-it-all supermom all this time, but she has had a ton of help since day one.

Ohio Buckeye said...

StopTheMadness: LOVE your quotations! Well said.

Brooklyn Bridge for sale... said...

Next week on Jon & Kate plus 8, Kate rhapsodizes about watching paint dry. The not-a-crew paints a wall behind the scenes; Kate pulls up her white plastic chair and gives the camera a knowing look and a slight nod of the head secure in the knowledge that just her presence on the tv screen will be enough to draw in 45 milliion viewers.

Ohio Buckeye said...

GoAwayJ&K said...........
YES! I remember the "Kate's Coffee Instructions" - even back then, I thought that was incredible. Yes, she had many small babies to care for, and I'm sure she was often tired, but WHO the H asks other people, especially your spouse who is ALREADY doing so much more than most around the house, to make your coffee AND per exacting directions? How does a person even get to have such a sense of entitlement?

Lazy is as lazy does.

Ohio Buckeye said...

StopTheMadness said, "So now we get to watch K8 organize deck chairs on the Titanic."
*********************************

LOL and exactly right!

Ohio Buckeye said...

NotSureSaid..........

But WHO needs a 'professional' to help organize just to make kids feel like life is 'normal' and that home is a permanence?

Plus, the kids were already told in the vow renewal that 'mommy & daddy will be together forever' - I'm doubting J&K's credibility rating is any higher with the Gosselin 8 than it is with all of us.

Ohio Buckeye said...

So K8ie Irene is thrilled beyond words to get her label maker, eh? I guess she hasn't bought one to this point because she couldn't find one for sale that accepted one of her coupons.

I have an idea for K8ie: K8, make a label for your forehead.... how do we spell 'p-s-y-c-h-o'?

Exactly. The help Kate really needs she'll never accept and I'm sure Steve would be there -on TLC's money -to ensure that no mental health practitioner ever got within shouting distance of her-- just in case, Heaven forbid, they had some other agenda than the TLC sponsored one. Like the kids' well being f'rinstance, or even Kate's many issues with her narcissism, control, self esteem, phobias, abusiveness...

If TLC actually made $168 MILLION American DOLLARS off the practice of filming this family, they have a heck of a lot to lose. Gosselins on the other hand only have their family, their mental health, and their SHIRT in this fight - realtively small potatoes conpared to the networks.

Plus their hatred for each other has got them blinded to the real issue at stake, they, above anyone else, don't seem to see it as anything above the fight between the two of them. No larger issues at stake - it's about paychecks, and the show.

These people need counselling, Jon seems to ahve gotten some, I'd love to see Kate get some that wasn't centered around what Dr Phil or Dr Drew or some other network talking head who hasn't talked to either or them or the kids, has to say.

Ohio Buckeye said...

Since the kids are now potty trained, so no more epis about poop in the pot, and we've run the gamut on fun 'little' jaunts ($$$) 'hither and yon', we've done the bogus vow renewal. We've done as many cross over themed epis as possible with anyone lame enough to prostitute themselves by being on this dog of a show. Hmmm... what to do, what to do....

a) Watch K8 get 'organization' tips from an 'expert'
b) K8+8 Watch Pennsylvania Puddles Freeze
c)Wernersville Fire Dept called to use the jaws of life to pry K8's behind from her white plastic throne
d)K8 actually has a genuinely good day and is kind to others ----nah, scratch that one. It'll never happen.

goawayJandK said...

OhioBuckeye-

Don't get me wrong : I would think ANYONE with 6 newborns to take care of would need lots of help. It just annoys me to no end that K8 claims she did it /and still does it all by herself.

btw: I was born and raised in Cincinnati !

Lucy said...
The only manual job Khate has done all by herself since birthing those babies is to tear down that sign Jon put up on their fence warning TLC of trespass
---------

How much manual labor did Kate actually do to birth the tups? seems like to me she went to sleep (something she excels at) and a team of SEVENTY doctors and nurses then did the work of birthing the babies and then caring for them. Then they had home nurses...

Just saying.

I had my three the old fashioned way as did the moms in the delivery rooms next to mine, and yes, that was a lot of hard manual labor, not made easier by the fact that my kids were 8.13, 9.03, and 8.15, and I'm 5'4" and weighed 120 lbs before I got pregnant. BIG ole babies; as my other half remarked with satisfaction, upon the size of our kids (vs his sister who had 5.8 to 6 pounders) "we got our money's worth" - yeah, we did!

All on healthcare that we paid $450 a month for; planned, with a family size we could afford and wanted; the idea of getting a doctor's help to have "just one more" when you can't afford it is a bad idea, your responsibility goes way beyond how they get in you and get back out again.

Mismatched cribs and boys wearing "girl" onesies and sleeper set hand me downs - very few matching outfits, but who cares if your son has his big sister's polar bear snug-suit - if he's warm and comfortable? He will grow out of it in a few weeks anyhow. Of course I never went in for the girls-like-tea-parties-and pink-ponies and frilly dresses and boys like trucks stuff - it just adds on dollars, a snuglie with a green giraffe is fine if you don't have some preconceived idea that your sone will turn gay if he doesn't have a motorcylce outfit on from the time he's a week old, or that a girl can't have a baby dinosaur on her t shirt.
And we went home to "helpers" - otherwise known as family - who were happy to cook or bring a meal or two and hold the babies and ooh and aah over them, in their cuteness, then leave me and their dad to support and "parent" the kids we decided to have, any I don't recall needing post it notes about how I would like my coffee delivered to me in the morning, notr did the moms in my group who had caesarians. I was up, with a toilet brush down the loo, taking baby one to elemetary school, baby two to preschool, while nursing baby three - the first week I was home. Yes I had them one at a time. By CHOICE. We get to do that just like Kate gets to decide to have 6 more when sh'es got twins.


Funnily enough I knew that this was going to be my life from here on out and accepted hand me down crib, hand me down clothes, and any help I could get. And took my sister's three oldest when she went into the hospital for her fourth, much like poor Aunt Jodi, and like her we did fine.

When you don't labor yourself or pay for it yourself or do it yourself you get funny ideas about what is normal or what is owed to you. Not every mom who has a passle of kids can count on Uncle Sam or TLC to bail her out on those decisions.

zoey said...

TLC should respect (even if they dont agree with) Jon's decision to stop exploiting the children and get them off T.V.
they should not air this episode or reruns until legal matters are settled.
just my opinion.

Ohio Buckeye said...

GoAwayJ&K said...You can understand needing lots o' help with all those babies, but pretending she did it all on her own was annoying.

Agreed!

And the whole EXPECTING someone to make you coffee each morning AND according to YOUR precise 'recipe' just strikes such an off chord in me - Ugh.

Raised in Cincy, eh? East sider or west sider? Having a beautiful fall day here today.....

stopthemadness said...

Organizing tips, by KATE!!

Go into the basement!

Talk about what a mess it is in there and how it's Jon's fault and how hard this is going to be to do all by yourself and how he will come back and it won't be done properly the next time you see it!

Decide to invent this thing called SHELVES, and these things called see through bins!

Put the little kid's things on the lower shelves where they can reach them - boys with blue tops on their bins for trucks and dinosaurs, little girls with pink tops on their bins for dolls and tea sets, separated by sex!

Take little kids to psychiatrist

Put Mady and Cara's things in bins on higher shelves where they can reach them!

Take Mady and Cara to the psychiatrist

Leave your underlings to do the actual work!

Do an interview where you talk about how much you hate Jon and how hard it is to have to do all this.

Go get your Starbucks, and your nails done

Wrap!

Ohio Buckeye said...

Sounds horribly boring. Maybe the "expert" will suggest "gender neutral" color coding, like green and yellow, then sit back and watch Khate have a hissy fit. That might liven things up a bit.

Ohio Buckeye and GoAwayJ&K - I used to live in Cincy, too. Lived in Mt. Healthy and then Loveland, worked in Blue Ash. Really miss Gold Star Chili and LaRosa's Pizza, but thankfully I can still get Graeters Ice Cream in Columbus LOL.

fidosmommy said...

I think this entire episode is intended to be a smack at Jon and a way for Kate to symbolically wash the house clean of everything that is Jon. A purification of sorts. Mine, all mine!

It's the timing of it that makes me say that. They've lived in this house for a year, and they are just now getting around to organizing their stuff? With all the help they have around there, including Carla the Kitchen Wizard?
But as soon as it becomes public that Jon is gone, they do this.
I think it goes well beyond just making sure Jon gets his stuff moved to his new apartment. And I don't know how therapeutic it will be for the kids to be boxing up their daddy's things for him, but in Kate's mind that doesn't matter. It just matters that his stuff is out of her hair. (oh no.
Now I've brought up her hair...)

The "new" episodes we've been seeing were filmed over the summer. Perhaps tomorrow's was filmed in September.

Debi said...

The show (episode) they should be doing (and I would actually watch it) is having a therapist (someone who has No vested interest in TLC...a "true" outsider) come and talk to each child and get their feelings on things. Now TLC....THAT would be a show!!

Maggie said:


We have had this episode already! Kate and Beth (remember her, former bff) went to IKEA and got all organized! IIRC, Kate forgot her checkbook, and Beth had to pay? Anyone else remember?

I bet Beth is waiting for that payback!

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

I think Beth got her payback just the way Kate always DOES paybacks. She got kicked to the curb along with all the other people involved in the kids' lives that Kate had no more use for.

'Nuff said.

stopthemadness said...

How much manual labor did Kate actually do to birth the tups? seems like to me she went to sleep (something she excels at) and a team of SEVENTY doctors and nurses then did the work of birthing the babies and then caring for them.
------------------------
She had 70 doctors and nurses for a c-section? Does anyone know the typical number of doctors and nurses attending a birth at the hospital she was at? I understand wanting more staff for a high number birth. 70 seems a tad excessive-ish.

Sorry, but to me that would be the ultimate invasion of these children's privacy. The show is not wrong for having become dull, it was wrong for being so interesting we didn't want to notice we had no business being there watching the way we did.

I fear the curiosity about these kids will kill us all, but really, if we never heard another word about any of them, that would probably be for the best.
Wouldn't it?

What about the kids money Jon withdrew? Seems kind of rude and ignorant to me, Kate has the children and he leaves her with $1000.

This is so juvenile. He said, she said, one lawyer against the other,

So sick of hearing about these two,

Let the IRS enter and solve the financial issues. K as a puppet of
TLC is trying to break J - hope he
has the stamina to persevere.
Hope the kids have lunch money!!

Vanessa said...

I think the premise of this show is that they're reading all the complaints about the over the top episodes- dude ranch, $10,000/week beach house etc. Now they're trying to show her doing everday normal mom stuff, but "a la K8" meaning hire a professional organizer. Who the hell cares how you organize your crap, I'll watch HGTV for those tips.
Watched her on the Today show, she did/said EXACTLY what a lot of posters said she would. She's crying poor again and referred to when they didn't know how they would pay their bills when the tups were first born. PLEASE, SOMEONE CALL HER OUT ON THAT!!
WHY ISN'T ANYONE PUTTING IN PRINT
ALL THE LIES SHE'S SPEWING??? I DON'T GET IT!
And Meredith, you suck! Are you trying to take over Babwa Wawa's job? Soo soft spoken, sooo polite and empathetic. If nobody can get THE interview where she'll be hit with the hard questions, than why not print the truth, it can all be vouched for.

kate is a cocky bitch said...

Lemme get this straight, the selfish witch decides to clean her house and give organizational tips when her entire family is in turmoil. What a sanctimonious hypocrite. So glad I stopped watching that idiotic garbage more than a year and a half ago. Since The Lying Channel likes to do these idiotic shows about cleaning, maybe the next show can be about how Jon is cleaning the bitch's clock

stopthemadness said...

I could b e misremembering but it seemed to me they said 70 people at the tups' birth - maybe it was 50?
still in a weird way it seemed to have set her expectations for how things would go. I lie around, center of attention, and millions of minions do my bidding.
Not that different from today - she isn't footing the bill for any of it and never has.

Why does anyone think this woman is right about anything? These children should be taken away from both of them.

TimetoOrganizeYourLives said...

Jon and Kate need to organize their priorities - their kids and stop thinking of themselves so much. I feel so bad for their kids. Why don't they????

BiteMe said...

Oh Hell, I am going to speak my thoughts once and for all.

Somewhere in the midst of Season 3 or 4, Kate and Jon felt they were some kind of celebritees, when the show was supposed to be a normal family raising multiple kids.

Kate's ego seems to have gone crazy when she got multiple offers for speaking engagements, which she could clearly have turned down to spend time with her kids. Likewise for all of the "Poor Me" shows she showed up on to promote herself, NEVER FOR THE KIDS. Same for Jon.

If the kids are so important,why don't these two spend more time with their kids, rather than in pursuit of the own selfish interests, with the kids being raisied by total strangers. Ahhh.. they both are selfish and suck. That is the answer. I feel very badly for the 8 kids.

These are not two parents who care but rather two entities trying to glorify their existence on the back of their kids. They both make me sick!!

I'm sure the reason for so many is because they were PREMATURE high order multiples with speculation of a bevy of medical problems. If the norm were 2-4 per premature child I don't know that double that for 6 is off base at all.

kansas said...

Khate....you say you found out about the money missing from the overdrafts you received. Why did you get ANY overdrafts if there was still $1000 in your account???????
10/05/2009 10:13 AM

Oh, Kansas, you are so right! This is how she is . . . she tells one story and gets everything all stirred up, but then later it comes out that her first story isn't the truth. She is really evil.

Cheri Mercer said...

It has been repeated more than once that it was their JOINT funds not the children's trust fund account that Jon withdrew the money from. Kate exaggerates so it most like was $22000 not $220,000 that Jon withdrew which is also his money. Why is it okay that Kate has complete control over their JOINT account and she can withdraw and spend whatever she wants. No one threw a fit when she bought her new SUV. Also, if Kate thinks she can walk into court with her "handwritten" accounting sheet (like the one she faxed to Kinko) she is going to be sorry. She needs receipts and an itemized statement showing why she spent what she did.

The double standard gets to me. 8 times over.

B.MO said...

Ugh, who comes up w/these "ideas" for the waste-of-time show? Khate herself??? (rhetorical question) I think I'll use the time the show is on to do some organizing of my own...

Don't watch, just wait for the recap here, they're always so good & infinitely more bearable. Oh, also if you're reading in the morning make sure you pee before you start reading because they tend to be that funny.

Label This said...

Kate needs to make several labels & put them on her forehead. I'll let you think of some. Liar comes to mind. Pity party. Then she can label all the kids so new crew knows their names. Then she can label all the money hers...The house, the crew, the nannies....Just make alot of labels that say ALL Kate's. Won't be watching this boring show repeat. She's done. I hope she & her label maker live happily ever after. Maybe she'll get a ring for it. And will promise to always be together. She is so done!!!

JaxMom said...

OK, wasn't organizing one of Kate's talents in past seasons? What happened? Is TLC trying to tell us that perhaps Kate wasn't the Queen of Organization? Because, I have to believe that organizing stuff for eight children in a smaller house would be a lot more difficult than in the house they live in now.

If I watched the show, I'd probably actually want to watch this one. I suck at Organizing...and love shows like Clean House. Thing is, not even an organizing show will get me to watch Khate anymore. Well, maybe I'll watch the episode when they sell the mansion and move back to the Etown house 'cause their broke. ;)

Ms.Peach said...

When they went back for the last time to the E-town house, I remember Kate in the basement. She stood around, attempting to look busy. Anyway, she put some stuff in a pitch pile and I will never forget one of the tups on the stairs (I think it was a girl), and she asked Kate why was she throwing away daddy's things? She either didn't answer or the answer was edited.

I knew then that something was going on. It is funny though that her idea of organizing the basement is getting rid of Jon.

Remember, it's a no-TLC zone tonight.

boooorrring said...

....well, probably would have been done by now if she were ever home long enough to realize that she HAS a basement.

For the love of all that's Holy, please do not watch this hot mess tonight.

TLC should be ashamed and embarassed, but I fear that they're all sitting around counting their piles of money and laughing at the stupid idiots who continue to watch this pile of poop week after week.

They could care less about the damage they've caused these eight kids. Hey, now I know where all the AIG people went......they got jobs at TLC!!!!!

I caught the preview for tonights show. Is that Beth, with the bangs, handing Kate the label maker?

Monica A said...

I personally think Jon drained the account cause he probably got tired of her trips to the nail salon and tanning spa. Really. She can spend $$ on whatever she wants cause she's a "single mother" but the minute he spends one red cent, she goes through the roof.

Typical Kate. Loser...

Can't See Sheep said...

Snap! said...

Kate always had notes posted everywhere in the house so that the 'helpers' and Jon knew how to do things her way. Organization is key- as Kate would say. So Jon finally decides to take charge and just like Kate would- puts a sign outside the gate. What is Kate's reaction?- She removes the sign and throws it on the ground. I wish Jon would have removed all the notes in the house- thrown them on the floor and said to Kate- we know how to take care of the kids- do laundry and make coffee Kate- no more notes!
==============

LMAO! now that would have been funny. Jon & the nannies tossing all of Kate's notes like she did with his sign. A big pile of them on the floor in the middle of the kitchen left for her to clean up. You see Jon wake up, go in the kitchen, sees all the notes, says 'oh shit' & starts pulling them down. Maybe someone should have posted notes on the dogs and the kids. Big yellow note on the dog's head 'let me out of the cage, walk me'. On the kids 'love me unconditionally, give me a normal life. Mommy stop filming me. Give me a hug. I need water.'



Claire said...
This way she won't even have to speak to the help, yuckie people, and better yet, the help won't have to listen to her
============

Maybe she just text's everyone's instructions to them, that why she spends so much time with her little pink phone, she's really just texted orders to her staff. Suddenly I end up with a pic in my head of Hitler with a black & red Nazi iphone sending orders out all over Europe, but is he sitting on a really interesting Bauhaus chair, of course not, he's sitting on Katie Irene's white plastic throne.


Ohio Buckeye said...
We've done as many cross over themed epis as possible with anyone lame enough to prostitute themselves by being on this dog of a show. Hmmm... what to do, what to do....

I think a Dog the Bounty Hunter cross over could be interesting. Kate finally gets busted, Dog has to come get her & take her in because the judge won't fall prey to her whining, she's not wrong & didn't turn up, blah, blah, blah. I'd like to see Kate try to out shout Beth, that woman's got lungs!

I don't watch said...

Well OhioTwinMom, I can guarantee you it's not Beth, but I definitely won't be watching so I don't know and don't care who it really is. I am so over and above watching this show. Too bad everyone isn't.

stopthemadness said...

Haven't seen an episode since the break up one, won't be watching. We have to get the numbers under a million - they will drop them like a hot potato. I think the last # was 1.3M

I fully believe if this ugliness in the media causes people to watch the show, whatever affect it's having on the kids, Kate will continue with this. If this is her high road I don't wanna see what she gets up to NEXT.

gladitsalmostdone! said...

OK, 3 minutes in (I needed a break from the Packers/Vikings game!), and she's already been rude/dismissive to these women who've come to help her. . .
And, she's already made a point of tossing Jon's stuff aside. . .
And -what's this? Kate has a friend? from Michigan? seriously?
And, apparently, the kids don't know how to behave with a non-Gosselin kid who's visiting. . .how sad. . .

THREE MILLION? said...

Jon was just on tv and called Kate a BIG LIAR. He kept looking at the tv camera saying "where's all the MONEY KATE!" Where?" They he pulled out a withdrawl slip from the bank acct. showing he removed exactly $22,000 last week for living expense, NOT $130,000. He said Kate made 2 million from the book alone, that he NEVER saw. That she's going though money like water and that she had 3 million dollars in 11 different accounts that he had NO access to. He called her right out on National TV and said SHE has all the money and she ONLY can access it. He said she should come clean and STOP lying. Wow.

mommatomany said...

Wow what is Kate even talking about? Doesn't she make $75,000 per episode? She should be due to get another fat check very soon. Why did she only have $200,000 saved anyway??? She makes a boat load more than that. I highly DOUBT Jon left her with ONLY a thousand dollars to her name. She's full of it.

tallblonde said...

As much as Kate is in Target - I'm sure she would have run across a label-maker a time or two...difference IS - she didn't get one for free at Target.

Nope it's Kate's very best friend Jamie from MI. This is the same blond woman that was at Kate's over the summer and we could never figure out who it was. In the Women's Conference thing Kate said she had a best friend for years and she would be on upcoming episode. Guess this is it!

Why can't everybody else see what we see?

On the Today Show, she's mild, gentle, soft spoken, brokenhearted Kate.

On the (reality) show, she's a loud mouth, bossy, show off, "I'm cleaning out the trash from my life" Kate.

Talk about which Jon is going to show up.....she's one to talk.

I saw your post and was curious about the old house so I looked it up on a local realtor site. Check out the bathroom pic! I count 8 notes stuck to the bathroom mirror! Wish I could read them! This is the only site I could find with this particular picture of the house shown!

Poochy Booty said...

I remember both those ladies ( the friend and the organizer lady ). They were the ones in the paparazzi shots who were sitting in their cars in her driveway while she pranced around in her bikini. I remember one pic was the friend and her son in the car, and Kate was standing there talking to her through the window with her butt sagging out of her bikini bottoms.

shel said...

did anyone else notice how mean those kids treated that little boy "Clay"
He was their guest and they were so ignorant to him and Kate is dumb enough to say they get along well and what was with Kate being so rude to the organizers re the wrapping station. I don't know what TLC is trying to do. they play kate up and then show stuff like this I think they are just trying to make a fool out of her.

those children need to learn to treat people nicer. that child was walking around at the end playing with nothing when allthe others were dressed up.

rachel said...

Amen, fidosmommy!!!!

...Amy... said...

Khate says that the kids are so comfortable around her BFF's son, yet to me, it looks like the little girls are being divas to this little boy. I wonder where they learned this behavior...

And, I wonder where Mady learned to be sooooo overdramatic? I swear, I thought Khate had lost a leg when she screeched about a box scraping her leg.

Also, a quick comment about the kids being so broken-hearted over not filming for now...why, why, why can't Khate take them on her own to NY? Why must the cameras be there to go to the Statue of Liberty? Khate can't take the kids to NY, yet she can go by herself and attend a cocktail party and do TV interviews? And, go Lisa Ling on The View today, sticking it to Khate about going out and getting a real job! There are women who are raising 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 kids (some raising children who aren't even their own...) and they're working a 12 hour shift somewhere, only to work their 2nd job on 4 hours of sleep. Please go back to the real world, Kate...

momof5 said...

Didn't watch, haven't watched in 13 months but did notice that on the Directv active screen J&K+8 popped up under the national tab for about 1 minute @ #5. (you can see top 5 shows) At the "top of their game" they would be under the eastern & national tab at #1, 2 or 3. I'm thinking this epi had very very low ratings.

No because there would have been 2 docs doing the c-section, the anesthesiologist, 1 or nurse, 1 scrub nurse, each baby would have had a Neonatologist, a respiratory therapist, a nurse & probably some nurses from the NICU.

My twins were born at 29 weeks & the OR was pretty full.

Janet said...

Ugh.

Just had on TLC (Cake-Off) for a minute and there was a little banner that said Ask Kate what you really want to know at tlc.com.

So, now she's just "Kate", no last name needed?

Double Blech.

Did anyone catch the preview for next week? Kate says, it was a big surprise when jon actually helped me get the kids off to school. umm, WTF! Kate always admitted Jon did everything when it came to getting the kids to school. Since when is he some kind of absent father who hasn't pulled his weight? Come off it, Kate, you've blabbed too much on past episodes to change your story now.

momof3 said...

This is too funny!!!

On the TLC site for JK8 there is a link at the bottom called "Get your family on track with Kate's organization tips".


Tip #8 Make Housework a Family Affair

..... And encourage Dad to get involved—in our situation, much of what a successful mom is able to accomplish is due to a very present and helpful dad!

SERIOUSLY..that is an actual quote from the TLC site! Guess it hasn't been updated in a while b/c I'm pretty sure Khate doesn't feel that way about dad anymore....based on her ability to "take the high road" and not speak negatively about Jon or the divorce.

Tami said...

Did not watch. While watching DWTS I turned over at commercials twice. I caught the part about her BFF from Michigan. Wonder how much they paid her. Funny how when Kate needed support she turned to the bodyguard and his wife and didn't mention any other BFF. Also caught next week's preview. Is she kidding? How do they expect us to believe it is a shock that Jon showed up to see his children off to school? The real shocker is that she dragged her lazy ass out of bed for the firt time this year simply because she knew the world would be watching her put the 6 on the school bus. Never did it for Mady and Cara.

Tami said...

What about the kids money Jon withdrew? Seems kind of rude and ignorant to me, Kate has the children and he leaves her with $1000.
*****
You know what? This is why things get out of hand. It is like that kid's game of telephone where you whisper something to someone and then they tell someone else and so on. It ends up being a totally different story. It is not the kid's money. It is not Kate's money. It was one of a bunch of accounts they have. She clearly is not telling where all the real money is. I doubt she pays bills from this account and I doubt she received any overdraft notice if there is $1000 still in the account. If she can't provide proof Jon took the amount of money she is claiming he should sue her for slander. In addition, she does not "have the kids". They share equal custody! Why can't the money be for HIM to provide for the kids?

Suzi said...

Momof3 - That link to the realtor listing for the house on Andrews Ave. is HILARIOUS!!!!!! Does anyone know one of those crime scene examiners who could get the picture blown up for us? LOL. Also, notice the paper mug of coffee in the kitchen shot. Wonder if that's Starbucks??

They are scripture verses.

Katestepbeingsuchahypocrite said...

There is no money for the kids! When has anyone ever provided any concrete proof, heck even miniscule proof, the kids have a dime??? We now know for certain that TLC had no provision to pay the children, Jon confirmed this on Larry King. You can't steal from children who have NOTHING to begin with.

Apparently the order is you are not permitted to withdraw "large amounts" without asking your spouse. What no one is mentioning is that in the same breath Kate accused Jon of stealing from their JOINT bank account, she also admitted that she took out $100,000without asking him and stashed it away. Really, Kate? Because that sounds like you did the same exact thing that Jon did. Pot, meet kettle.

Of course Kate's spin was, well I took it out for food, SO IT'S OKAY (Just like everything she does that breaks the rules, the law, cardnal sins, etc, are okay because well, it's KATE). However, who is to say Jon isn't taking his money out for food too? Like someone pointed out, they have joint custody. He's not some kind of absent father who only sees the kids on Christmas, he is there all the time. He too has to buy food for them at some point.

$100,000 or $200,000, they are both large sums of money and they both should have informed the other. Though as far as I can tell, Kate took out her money first. So really, she started it. Now she cries when Jon does it. Unbelievable.

Kate's spin and lies are not working on me. What some people will fall for without bothering to look at the whole picture or simply taking at face value all of Kate's LIES, is really depressing.

savvy said...

I went on the View message boards. Alot of Kate fans are trashing Lisa Ling for being mean to Kate.

I think the ratings will be higher than last week thanks to all this back and forth with Jon and Kate and the media blitz over the last week. Alot of people are not familiar with the show but probably tuned in to see what all the fuss was about, not knowing it was taped in the summer. Smart move by TLC to start all this on Monday to coincide with the show.

this was a great quote! exactly what Kate is not. I'm also very happy that I'm not the only one who remembers and was bothered by the coffee making note. I remember watching the very first documentary where they showed the kitchen and zoomed in on the coffee list, I was and am still amazed at this if I were to ask my husband to make my coffee and then deliver it before going to work...I can tell you, THAT would be a television show!

Don’t hold your breath. It was pitifully boring. Kate had two professional organizers come in plus her “bestest” friend from Michigan, (can’t remember her name) who brought her son, Clay (about 7 yrs old). The tups showed that they have no social skills and yelled at everything he tried to do and wouldn’t share their toys. There was a shot of the poor boy with a look of horror on his face after he was blasted by one of the girls. Hilariously, at that point, the camera went to Kate on her interview chair, laughingly saying how much fun her “bestest” friend’s son and Kate’s tups had together and how they all loved each other. One interesting series of shots showed Joel, with a plastic ax, hacking at various stuffed animals the kids had come across during the organization. That was pretty strange and creepy. At one point, Kate dropped some kind of metal framing on her foot and yelled so loudly that I thought she’d have to be rushed to the doctor, much like the Cara-foot fiasco except I doubt anyone would have waited two weeks if she’d yelled much more. She explained when she sees a mess her mind becomes jumbled and that’s all she can see. Obsessive/compulsive. Surprise. The organizers tried to be polite when all was said and done and said Kate is very “determined” (LOL) at times, and I got the feeling it was a job that they were happy was over. I couldn’t tell how much Kate actually helped, but on the second day, she had to leave to take the twins to a concert. I wondered why she didn’t schedule the organizers to come when she could be there for the whole time. Silly me.

So tonight we were introduced to kHate's "bestest" friend Jamie from MI. I think this was filmed in the summer but I guess Jamie is still around; wasn't she the one in the picture today grabbing one of the little boys? What a grand gal she is!

Claire: Kate took the girls to the Jonas Brothers concert in Philly July 23. It was all over the news. The girls brought a friend and I think they were in a limo. Hmmm, Kate should have saved all those pennies since she is unable to pay her bills now. LOL. (like she paid)

Oh, for July. I wasn't involved in watching the unfolding drama at that time. Sigh.

I wonder why they show the episodes out of order? The Farm to Table show was shot in August.

Melissa said...

And -what's this? Kate has a friend? from Michigan? seriously?

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

Probably the only friends that can tolerate her - the ones 500 miles away.

Jamie said...

Jon went on Insider and showed the paper trail from the bank. He withdrew around $22,000. NOT $230,000. Big difference.

Kate added one more zero and cried wolf because she wanted you to think Jon took all the money therefore the TV show must go on to feed the kids. She wants to manipulate the public to support keeping the show on air. What a disgusting and deceiving woman!

If you were lying, you wouldn't want to be on Insider. The hosts on Insider aren't exactly warm and fuzzy. But Jon isn't afraid. When you are telling the truth, you are not afraid. Jon let them attack him and questioned him, he just gave his best to answer all the questions. He showed them the paper trail. He was like a eager student trying to show the evidence to the teacher or something. When do we see Kate show anything paper document to backup her claim?

When do we see any evidence of the accusation about what Jon did? It's always Kate says this, TLC says this, somebody says this happened. I want some paper document and photos, Kate!

Vivian said...

Kate misses the old Jon who didn't know how to defend himself and never wanted to embarrass the mother of his children.

Kate thought she could ride on doormat Jon like she used to. Kate and TLC sabotaged Jon to fulfill their agenda without any concern of Jon's well being.

A human being can only take so much. Even a doormat will start speaking up.

It's all your fault, Kate. You don't give Jon any room to breathe. Your team keeps attacking him and attacking him. What do you expect? He has to tell the truth to defend himself, if that means the truth embarrasses you.

ICExploitation said...

Kate cracked me up when she was "reminiscing" about Mady's first year calendar - yes, I understand, it's been a long time since she's actually been a mother.

f8k8 said...

just saw it on utube. one of the most boring episode ever. even fast forwarding to see if there were any interesting parts. not much of it besides the girls being extremely rude to the boy.

wonder where they picked up that attitude from?

all he did was grab a roller for the play-dough.

Ahh I bet Jamie is the person Kate was talking to in the driveway - remember those photos a few months ago with a little boy looking out the car window while Kate was talking to someone inside, and we all wondered who it was?

crabbygirl said...

OK, I gave in and watched. I was so shocked by how rude Kate treated her organizers. She was bossing them around and telling them to pick stuff up. Another thing I noticed about her is she has absolutely no sense of humor when she interacts with other people. There is no way Kate is truly OCD as she claims, hers is completely selective.

crabbygirl said...

The reason why Kate screamed so loud when she dropped the frame/metal thing on her leg was because she thought if she cut her leg she would not be able to wear a mini skirt and high heels to the JONAS BROTHERS concert that night.

rural mom said...

It is truly heinous how Kate gets a free pass with the media, there are no follow up questions or redirection, she is allowed to give her slant without objection, a real journalist would ask "don't you get child support" or "why are you alone forced to support these children?" or "when you say liquid money, do you mean you have other funds available that you could use to pay your bills with?" and so on. One good interviewer could shut that cow up for good.

pogo said...

What a stupid show. So, she could not buy a label maker at any office supply store or Walmart? Please Kate, DON'T insult us! And her incestant whining, about how terrible life is to her, hey Kate take a look around you, people make a 10th of what you make and manage. This makes me like the Duggars more than I have. As, for the money, yeah Jon was right, where did it all go? $75,000 an episode, times 13 episodes for 4-5 years, thats close to $4 million dollars, not including, book deal and signing and other TV appearances. The house was $1 million, TLC picks up the trip expensives for when ever they go somewhere, so Kate is saying that they only have $200,000 dollar to their name? Jon was on ET, he asked what happened to the $2 million? Some time ago in an article, Kate stated that the children were set for college. Now she gets on TV and whines about a purse full of bills! Stop going on all theses pointless trips with the kids, thoses trips cost money. Stop going to the tanning salon, hair salon, designer clothes, nail salon etc, then you will have money to pay bills. As, for Jon, he is 100% right the show should be taken off, he wanted it 2 years ago, but, Kate it's for the kids! Kate get a new line. And the kids crying about not being filmed, please, Kate you must be totally stupid, and not seeing how this is damaging your kids. What they need to do is, stop the show, work on their problems they created, home school the children till everything calms down. The kids will/if not already are being teased at school. Another pointless show.

Anne said...

Smart move by TLC to start all this on Monday to coincide with the show.

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

I didn't watch, but perhaps if they were drawing in new viewers last night they should have picked something more interesting than organizing a basement and watching the tups verbally abuse a guest's child. Any new viewers may not return next week.

kris said...

Interesting that her BF is from Michigan, which is also home to the publishing company for her books.

I hope to heck her BF isn't the woman in the photo treating Colin that way.

Ms.Peach said...

OMG. Watched it on Youtube. I don't know which makes my skin crawl more---her cackling or "singing". Let's see, I heard mismatchy;fourish;jumblely;oooh- ahhish. Does she think she's cute?

Did anyone hear the kids screaming in the background at the end of the show when she was down in the basement talking to the camera? How could she ignore that?

She is such a no-talent! I have seen much better organization shows on HGTV. I wonder if those ladies thought the publicity was worth it after dealing with Kate.

Ms.Peach said...

Z's take on last night's show:

TLC's 'Jon & Kate' - Can't compare with tabloid TV
I was wondering Monday night while watching "Jon & Kate Plus " if I was the last person in America still checking in on the original show week to week. Who needs this phony TLC production any longer with the spectacle that Jon and Kate Gosselin are making of their divorce throughout the rest of the media?

How could any taped performance Kate gave on Monday's show about getting her basement organized compare to her teary-eyed and outrageous claims made in real time Monday on NBC's "Today" show and ABC's "The View" that she was so broke she couldn't pay her bills because Jon had looted a joint account of $230,000?

And the networks are happy to give Kate all the airtime she wants to play the drama queen. Why not? It's great TV -- conflict, tears, accusations and a demand for the viewer to chose a side and get all emotional about it.

But if anyone else did watch Monday, let me ask this: Did Kate seem especially rude and obnoxious in her dealings with the two professional organizers bwho came in to help her get her basement straightened out? Why does she invite professionals into her home if she is going to treat them this way?

One of the two women tried to explain that she was putting the gift wrapping stuff in a certain area to create a "fun" space, and Kate essentially said that she doesn't have time for fun -- she is too busy.

Right Kate, you are too busy doing what -- saying crazy stuff that everyone knows isn't true on the "Today" show? Or are you too busy ordering around the staff of baby sitters and production aides that TLC pays for?

I do have two follow-up things to say about Kate Gosselin's appearances on "Today" and "The View." You can read what I wrote Monday here and here.

But in answer to the comments from readers about the performance of Meredith Vieira and the hosts of "The View," I have to agree that it is outrageous that no one questioned how she could be broke after all the money she and Jon made.

Second, after watching TLC and Kate Gosselin in practice over the last year, I would not be suprised if this latest "I-am-broke" stance isn't part of an effort to re-cast Kate's image as someone who is feeling some of the economic pain that many of her former fans are feeling.

As Kate has gone all-spa, high-end vacations, and no financial worries, literally 90 percent of here audience has abandoned her. I'm wondering if the performance Monday was calibrated to the kind of comments seen at this blog by people who have ceased to identify with the imperious and money-loving Kate.

What do you think?

8 minus Kate said...

Watched part of it on Youtube, but I had to shut it off. Kate's piercing shriek reminds me of the villain in the Strawberry Shortcake cartoons from the 80s - Sour Grapes.

wooooooooooooooooooooo.

not K8s bestest friend said...

I'm only 4 minutes into the episode (on youtube) and Kate has used the word bestest and said she needed moral support to clean and organize the basement.

Why is Jon attacked in the media so much and Khate is not? I'd pay to see Nancy Grace "interview" Khate. Nancy Grace goes for the jugular like she did to Jon last night on The Insider. I don't like the new format on The Insider ... very creepy. Too many talking/attacking...yuck!

Vanessa said...

I guess nothing but the best toilet paper for Queenie, nice placement shot of Charmin. We, on the other hand use no-name 1 ply paper for our sorry behinds, but I guess that would be beneath K8.
Why does she make a run to the store so many times? She looks like she's got a bunker down there and could survive for months!
The waste! I think it makes her feel good to just have "stuff" surrounding her.

She pulled out a small pair of snow pants (too small for any of the tups) Wonder if she's donating any of the clothing/toys to charity? HA! Off to consignment they go! You know Jon left her with only $1000 dollars, she's really going to have to tighten her belt now, poor thing!

Swissmiss150 said...

I noticed Kate was barefoot when they were organizing the basement. Not good safety-wise.

No wonder the kids scream - they picked it up from Kate. I wanted to cover my ears when she shrieked at things. Geez.

I bet the little boy - Clay - doesn't want to go there again. Those kids were MEAN to him. Where was the baby sitter to protect the kid?

I felt sorry for the organizers. She showed little respect for them, and they worked hard - for nothing, I assume. Just the 'glory' of saying they were on TV.

not K8s bestest friend said...

This woman is so over the top with her fake voices and screams. She's also rude and unappreciative. I can't imagine how anyone can relate to her. I guess this wasn't her segue into being a professional organizer because she said she can't organize for other people.

Come and Get Your Popcorn said...

I tuned in and tuned out in about 5mintes. I wonder if the media who are siding w/ her have ever watched the show. Those of us who know can see the kids deteriorate week to week. Once Kate started stealing the spotlight from them and hogging the camera it was all downhill from there. I wish Jon would just come out and say what we all know--Kate wants the filming to continue so that SHE can be filmed.

not K8s bestest friend said...

One last thing. The youtube clip I watched cut out all the commercials except for one for next weeks episode. Kate actually says, "It was a big surprise when he showed up and helped me send the kids off to school." Did she forget that Jon was the one who got Cara and Mady ready for school and on the bus while she slept? I was surprised Kate showed up. Oh wait, there were paps and TLC cameras that's why. This woman is so full of herself.

Evy said...

The $22,500 figure was just Jon's salary. Kate gets her salary and I hope the kids get theirs.

Jamie is mentioned in Multiple Blessings as being her longtime best friend. When they were moving into the Elizabethtown house, Jamie took Cara and Mady to stay with her in Michigan for a week while Jon and Kate moved and set up the house.

OhioBuckeye said, So K8ie Irene is thrilled beyond words to get her label maker, eh? I guess she hasn't bought one to this point because she couldn't find one for sale that accepted one of her coupons.

I have an idea for K8ie: K8, make a label for your forehead.... how do we spell 'p-s-y-c-h-o'?
---------------------

It's not usual for me to be so interested in someone else's life, but I just can't seem to stop myself from reading about this family and the tragedy those poor kids are forced to endure day after day and sometimes it makes me physically ill. I mean, I actually get an upset stomach thinking about the damage Kate's doing to their mental health and praying for it to be stopped.

And then I get to this post and about fell off my chair laughing!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, OhioBuckeye, for the much-needed comic relief!!

MBach said...

Remember when they left the old house. Jon showed such saddness at, under Kate/hate's orders, to throw away some of his Dad's things. The same Dad that supported that family, and left them a large sum of money.

Do you suppose Jon had any say in what happened to the money left to him by HIS father? I doubt it.
Kate/hate is rather squirrelly. She has put THEIR money (and by that I mean mostly the kid's money) from the show, speaking tours, books and book signings, love offerings, and donations from good hearted deceived people into several places unknown to Jon. Can we say Swiss bank accounts? Maybe even buried, squirrel-like, in the back yard. :o)

What makes anyone think that throwing away Jon's things will be given as an option to his children? Anything that is not directly related to Kate/hate and her agenda is not worthy of space in HER world. Family, friends, staff, husbands and dogs are all throw aways to someone like her.

Maude said...

I thought she got $25,000 for appearances which, in part, included her organization tips?

Fraud, scam, con.

Just a few words that pop into my head when I think of all the ways this woman "earns" a living.

MickeyMcKean said...

I'm praying that the ratings for last night's show suck so TLC will just cancel the show versus Jon and Kate having to go to court to determine if Kate and TLC can continue filming her kids.

Two kids.. said...

Was this episode sponsored by Charmin?

3ts said...

Katie Irene could open a mini mart in her basement with her supplies of cleaner and paper products. It must be nice for the single mom of 8 to be able to afford so much supply. She must share her secrets of where to snag THOSE coupons!

My fellow sisters and brothers in divorce and single parenthood will know exactly what I mean. Heck, the average American family in this economy knows all too well. Kate Gosselin and her 'woe is me', pfttt.

Kate's sister?

I'mamomtoo said...

I'm waiting for TLC to approach me about a reality show. Mine will be about me moving next to Kate and bragging about all the great stuff I'm getting for free from TLC. It will show me shopping and buying expensive stuff. I can't wait to buy my first LV purse then get my hair cut and nails done. Then I'm off to NOT IKEA but a kitchen and bath store to have everything remodeled. Then tune in to watch Kate whine about how much I got and she wants more. Oh yeah my husband's a real card and for your viewing please he will be letting Kate know that she more a nightmare then a sweet dream. Later Jon & Kate plus nothing!

"KuckF8 said...

So tonight we were introduced to kHate's "bestest" friend Jamie from MI."

Prolly the only thing true about that is she's (originally) from MI. I bet anything she's a paid babysitter. By now you can just tell from Kate's tone of voice when she's making stuff up. Like we're so stupid to believe this is the first time we've heard of her "bestest" friend after 4 years of episodes. And I think from Beth Carson we all know how short-term Kate's "best friendships" are.

*****

Isn't Jamie Ayers the mystery woman who was at the Mansion back in the early summer - drove a white SUV and had a little boy in the back. You know, Kate's infamous blue bikini back end shots. This woman was also in a twin dress to Kate's black scoop neck dress, sitting on the front stoop, eating something with Kate and some of the kids. We all wondered what was up with all the black.

So, that tells me that this organizing episode was filmed at the time of Jamie's visit from Michigan and the blue bikini shots.

However, I can't see that the woman reprimanding Collin is the same person. Maybe, but I'm not sure. Unless Jamie visited from MI again, or unless this is just the first time anybody's seen this picture.

Joyhawk said...

I had to go see why 'OCD Khate' needs help organizing, so I watched as much of last night's epi on utube I could stomach. What I saw both shocked me and didn't surprise me at all: shocked at the amount of TOYS and HOUSEHOLD SUPPLIES and just JUNK this family has accumulated - ! Then saddened because she was throwing away so much stuff that should have been given away to a church or Goodwill. Then I was NOT surprised by how rude she was to everyone... but then shocked again to watch how HORRIBLE the children were behaving!
OMG, that poor little boy Clay was being treated SO badly by those girls.... but he cracked me up when he'd had enough of one of them yelping at him and just stuck his fingers in his ears and started going, "ya-ya-ya-ya-ya!"
Ultimately though, those poor kids.... they obviously have NO boundaries and haven't been taught how to politely deal with others - Now why should this surprise me given the modeling by their mother?
Jon - get thee parental skills kicked into full gear and get thee HOME.

Ladylou said...

The friend from Michigan (where I live LOL!) "Jamie" and her little boy sure look a lot like the lady we saw driving into the driveway at the house during the summer. Remember Kate stood in plain view in her bikini talking to her?
We all speculated on who it might be.

The little boy (forget his name) was seen trying to play with the bratty 6 but they made faces and pulled a toy away from him.
The friend "Jamie" was being ordered around by you know who.

Funny she only brings friends out of the woodwork when she needs their help with things.
We've never seen her treating any girlfriends on her dime to the spa or coffee or just friendship have we?

fidosmommy said...

all he did was grab a roller for the play-dough.


*****
.....AFTER politely asking if he could use it and being told NO! by one of the girls (Alexis?) He seemed shocked, and waited a few seconds, then just took it. She snatched it back pretty fast.

Sharing is not a strong suit with the little ones, is it? I don't see them being very gracious about any form of sharing, but maybe that's a consequence of being a Gosselin. I do hope they learn some basic social skills at school since Mommy Gosselin seems to want to quanantine them from polite society the rest of the time.

fidosmommy said...

Ah, so many great posts again today. Thank you, everyone, thank you Moderators especially!

1) The Andrews St. house - if all that leftover stuff is still in that house, I would not be interested in looking at it at all.
A house with the former resident's unwanted stuff in it is unappealing to me. I guess by now the Gosselins have hired someone to clear it out, but still. Clear it out, THEN take the pictures. If you saw all that stuff in the realtor's pictures, wouldn't you wonder what else was wrong with the house? Clean it up, Ms. Germaphobe/Organized One. I can't believe Kate left it like that, and then griped about the refrig.
at the new house.

2) The issue of the money will be dealt with in court. We don't know the story, since Jon and Kate are both telling different ones.
The truth is probably somewhere in the middle, where it usually can be found.

3) The Labelmaker. I have one. The very day I discovered its usefulness to me I labeled my little picture/video boxes, my banker's boxes with important things to store, and a few other things. The one thing I did NOT do was utter some kind of primal scream over its virtues. Good heavenly days!

4) The foot. It seems to me that if Kate had really hurt herself with that metal rod, there would have been an immediate bruise which, as a nurse, she would know should be iced down to limit the
effects. I got the feeling it was
mostly for show, but then, it wasn't my foot.

Suzi said...

Has anyone heard any ratings info from last night? Also, has anyone checked in on the Sheeple lately? I sometimes read the View board and a good 90%-95% are pro-getting the show off the air, including some who were supportive of Kate just weeks ago.

Huh said...

All I know is I feel sorry for the people who do the recaps (as entertaining as they are). I haven't watched since the birthday party episode, where Kate gleefully pointed out the pesky paparazzi way over across the park while TLC had cameras right in the kids' faces.

This episode sounds like the worse one yet. Half an hour of watching Kate boss people around? Yippee.

GoPoshGo said...

Anne said...
I didn't watch it as usual, but can't wait for the recap.

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

Here's the recap:

Kate's still a bitch.

Ms.Peach said...

In regards to the preview clip for next week's show when Kate says she is surprised by Jon showing up that morning at the bus stop----it's a lie. They have production schedules. She just said that to make Jon said bad.

Beagles 4 said...

All I can say is TLC don't you have anymore ideas? Same old stuff. We are tired of watching kids eating, urinating, defecating, vomiting, going to the dentist/doctor, going to school, and going on trips. All of our kids do these things,well not the freebie trips but the other stuff is routine in every parents' life.

I can't believe the vomit buckets aka tups' old tubs was mentioned to the degree it was. God Kate, give it a rest already!! We don't need to hear how well vomit can land in these perfectly designed containers. Oh well, I guess I couldn't expect anything brighter coming from someone that has a pea size brain. Kate = dimwitted loser. I know because everyone seems to be in "agreeance".

For someone who claims to be so organized, especially in such detail as Kate, why would she need help? Just for a lousy episode. Something to fill a half hour time slot.

Whatever happened to Jon and Kate plus 8. Looks like all about Kate to me.

I think TLC should do a Kate show. Let's watch her go from real job to real job to see how the rest of us live. I think this would be so funny as we watch her mess up food orders, sweep floors, or just anything that doesn't require her sitting on her ass doing nothing.

clairenmaddy said...

Hello everyone, I must confess, I've been reading this blog for THE longest time but never have posted. Today is the day I will share my 2 cents worth. I love what everyone has to say about the fiasco that is Jon and Kate.

I have stopped watching the show. After the divorce announcement I just stopped. I figured the hype would die down and the show would fold.

I watched Kate on the TODAY show and was just shocked that she would mention that the kids were upset because they didn't get their free trip to the Statue of Liberty? And, Meredith even replied saying "it comes at such a high cost" it's like Kate grazed right over that and doesn't even care that all the fame and fortune has come at a price, she has lost her privacy, her marriage and respect from many. And, here's the other thing. Don't Mady and Cara have to be in school? How do they get so much time off from their school to travel etc. Most schools frown upon un excused absences. How can they always miss school? The fact that they missed the free trip to NY? So what, she better get her priorities in order here. She says she does everything for her kids? I think not, she does it for her. She is selfish. She is missing the point Meredith was trying to make.

My other thought is about Jon. It has taken him a long time to see what everyone here has seen for more than a year. I hope they pull the show, I hope TLC gets reprimanded for not following protocol on the work permits etc. It's time to end this sham of a show. No one cares about tea parties, organizing their home or haircuts. It's boring and the ratings indicate as much.

I have no doubt like most of you that Kate has fabricated the missing money story. If he has documentation to back it up then good for him. She probably is hiding money. Isn't she the same person that only gave Jon $5 a day when he was working for lunch? I am not really a big fan of either of them but if Jon succeeds in getting the show pulled, then I applaud him. Let the kids have a normal life and have some privacy. They don't need to jet set all over the country with free trips. They need the love and support of their parents --at the end of the day they won't remember the freebies but they will remember whether or not their parents were there for them.

I could ramble on and on but I think I made my point and I know most of you reading this are in agreement. Save the 8- and cancel the show!!!
