The saga continues and continues and continues.

Given the end of the show and the tabloid drop-off, this may be the last Tabloids post.

It's a Crazy Life, but it's Our Life recap

With the cameras gone for now, and hopefully forever, and this being the last official episode of Jon & Kate plus Eight, this will be the last planned recap on GWoP. So, in light of this, we wanted to make this recap a collaborative effort from all of the mods. We also want to say thank you to all the recappers who have provided us with humorous and poignant recaps over the last year and a half. Each and every recap has been great. Thank you so much! Also a special thanks to all the readers who have supported our recappers, your support has made a tough job a bit easier.

We hope you enjoy our final recap,

Sharla, Breanna, Fostersmom, JoyRene, and Maggie

Happy Thanksgiving


A happy Thanksgiving to all. We have one more thing to give thanks for this year with the end of the show. Be safe to those yet to be on the roads. Traffic was already bad yesterday.


Future of the Blog

Questions are coming in about the blog. We aren't going to close it while people still want to discuss the Gosselins. One of the main reasons for starting the blog was the closing of the Jon & Kate Plus 8 thread on Television Without Pity (TWoP). We may make some changes to make it easier on us, but we will warn you in advance. One of the things we plan to do shortly is reduce the number of open posts. The next step may be to reduce the frequency of opening new posts.

Monday, November 23 - It's a Crazy Life, But it's Our Life


In the series finale Kate and the kids milk cows at a dairy farm. Jon and the kids learn about firefighting and help out at a firestation. Then, Jon and Kate speak about recent life events, the series and the ups and downs of the last few years.


The show is over and so is the marriage. This is Kate leaving the arbitration today. Hopefully this will be a cautionary tale to other families now involved or considering involvement in reality TV.

So long and farewell.

No, I don't know that's the name for her new show, but TLC is still talking about it.


TLC Confirms Kate Gosselin Gets New Show

Atlanta,GA 11/20/2009 06:43 PM GMT (TransWorldNews)


TLC has confirmed Kate Gosselin has a new TV series. A spokesperson for the network said Thursday that Kate’s new show will launch in the spring of 2010.

Earlier this year TLC announced that Jon and Kate Plus 8, the reality show Kate shared with estranged husband Jon Gosselin, would be retitled Kate Plus 8 as Jon would no longer be appearing on the show. Jon halted production with a cease and desist order that banned TLC film crews from entering the Pennsylvania home he owns with Kate. TLC was eventually forced to end the show. They are now suing Jon, 32, for breach of contract.

TLC now denies Kate’s show is ‘Kate Plus 8.’ “Kate Plus 8 is not in production. We are focusing on the launch of Kate's new series in early spring,” said a network spokesperson.

It is unclear if Jon and Kate's 8 children will be featured on the show. Kate, 34, has not commented

Gymnastics & Baseball Recap

This recap is dedicated to Kate Gosselin’s New And Improved Breasts, without whom this episode clearly would not have been possible, given the level to which they were displayed. Well done, Ms. Gosselin! Yes, they sure are round and perky and plump, and we all noticed; how could we not? They’re a metaphor, actually, a temporary testament to what you’ve accomplished during this whole sorry debacle: spending money on frivolities for yourself that your children earned by being forced to have their childhoods broadcast for the entire planet to watch. By being forced to be a brand simply by virtue of their birth. A car commercial with cutesy names. A new brand of carpet cleaner in matching clothing. continue

Request to the Sheeple

I pulled this out of the other thread where it was out of place.

Thanks to my9cats.

Will a sheeple please take the time to write and explain the attraction of Kate, leaving out the tired stock phrases, "yer just jellus, a hater, she has 8 count 'em 8 kids, you should walk in her shoes. Blah blah blah." Take your time and THINK carefully before writing.

The Party is Over - at Least the Show Is!

Announcements are starting to come out - finally.

Viewers' Top Moments Recap

In their latest attempt to spin Kate into the poor, misunderstood single mom and Jon into the world’s worst father, TLC decided to treat us to yet another clip show with very little of the kids, but heavy on Kate. Cuz the other 10 they’ve put together haven’t been bad enough, they let the viewers vote on this one. Or so they claim, I’m not sure I believe them... they have been known to lie on occasion. continue

Monday, November 9 - Viewers' Top Moments

Kate takes a walk down memory lane as she looks back at viewers' favorite moments from Jon & Kate plus 8 and helps the audience countdown some of the best moments on the show.

What Should Jon Be Doing?

Jon was seen taking a yoga class in LA earlier this week and now it's being said he's on his way to Hawaii for a professional athlete's wedding. What should Jon have been/be doing instead in your opinion?

To Watch or Not to Watch?

To keep this topic from taking over other threads and to help those who aren't interested be able to avoid it, we are centralizing the discussion in one thread. Comments exhorting people not to watch, chastizing those who do watch, or discussing how ratings are compiled that are brought up in other threads will be rejected.

Kate: Her Story Recap

Thanks to a courageous volunteer, GoPoshGo, we now have an official recap!

The opening montage reminds us of the cuddles, chaos and frustrations we’ve witnessed the family face, including a clip of a beleaguered Kate on her knees moaning, “I’m so tired of dealing with poop.” [An ironic foreshadowing of the GWoPPers future battle cry?] The montage concludes with Kate and Jon on the interview couch; Kate, summing up the Hawaii trip: “We’ll always be together.” Her upward inflection at the end of the sentence should have set off bells and whistles in all of us at the time. A voiceover by Natalie Morales reveals the over-arching themes of the interview: “Always didn’t last forever;” “How did it go from love to lawsuits? And “how is she handling the most difficult time in her life with millions of Americans watching”???? continue

Kate: Her Story "Recap"

First we must apologize. Due to technical difficulties there is no recap from us for this episode.

There is a good factual one here.

We have two suggestions. The first is that if those who did watch would like to recap one question and send it through as a comment. If you'd put the question first and then your recap that would be great. The second is that if there is an intrepid volunteer out there who wants to recap the whole "show" or parts of it, please let us know.

Lies Kate Has Told - Jon's Lies Also

We were asked last week to put up a thread to list all their lies and con games. This seems a good time.
