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.

"I am not a quitter."

(Except for my marriage, my parents, most of my siblings, our dogs, old friends, neighbors....)

WorkerBee said...

"Real cooks don't follow recipes"...cut to the episode where she's making Monkey Munch and yes, she's following a recipe.

Janine said...

Yes, we do go to church... Ummm well we haven't been in a while, umm it's just hard because it's ummm something 'we' did, the ten of us and now it's only 9 and it's just too hard.

My kids don't work.
I work hard.
Everything I do is for my kids.
I love Jon, I always will.
"this means daddy and mommy are going to be married forever"
"this Chrstmas we are getting not one but two dogs" (but I get to pick them out, name them, ignore them and send them back)
"This is your house and come hell or high water we will always live here"
I am selfless!
I have not done ANYTHING to bring this on, I ONLY signed up to do a reality show.
It isn't harming my children, they LOVE it and deserve it. I would NEVER do anything to harm my kids. I was on BEDREST for 30 weeks and didn't put anything in my mouth that could be bad for them, I sacrificed for them so now they should have everything handed to them on a Golden (not silver) Platter.
It makes me sick when people say I am having an affair with Steve. He / they are two of my very 'few' and far between friends. I need security everywhere because people hate me.
(no K8, we really don't care that much... and what about protecting your kids?)
I am the one who spends the most time with the kids.
I'm just home making dinner.
I take the high road and do not discuss private matters.
I am a hard worker.
I never quit anything, I am not a quitter.
I know there are many more...

Lucy said...

Khate # 1 Lie: "I did it for the kids".

Jon # 1 Lie: "We need to deal with this divorce privately."

Of course there are many, many, many more lies. It's especially what Khate does best...ish!

rural mom said...

I am out in LA telling my story because everything I do is for my kids...whom I have left at home with 1 babysitter because apparently it is safe for 1 person to look after these many kids, just not safe for me.
I did not set out to be a celebrity, can you show me again how many covers I made this week?
I did not set out to have this reality show be our sole source of income.. but quitting my job and then having Jon quit his was pretty easy for us to do.
My kids deserve life served up on a golden platter.. they don't deserve the stability of having a dad, pets, grandparents or freedom to go anywhere they want without being recognized and pointed at.
I think it is ridiculous that you are asking me about Steve being a lover, I am not answering the question, I am just repeating it is a ridiculous question. The life lessons I have learned could fill 10 books, and if you know anyone out there who is willing to write them and let me pass myself off as the author, please let TLC and my PR girl know.
I was educated in a Christian school, so if I make up phrases and words and come across as illiterate, stupid and moronic, don't blame me, blame my religious parents, whom I have limited contact with through email because really, who needs to let the people who raised you have a taste of this good life?

GoPoshGo said...

It's the realist reality show on TV.

lurkerobserver said...

IMO, the whole vow renewal thing was a big whopper for both of them.

Minka and Minka's tail said...

Ooh, I'm the first one! One of the joys of being unemployed and hanging around the computer all day!

With Kate, we really don't know. She has never really been asked to give her side of the story, even on shows called "Her Side of the Story." She evades any direct question about the end of her marriage. (Hang on, my cat wants to add something here--she has a strong opinion)
55555555555555522222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222

My cat said, (in her code) that she doesn't believe that they really have all those bathrooms, because if they did, they wouldn't leave the house, they would just watch paper go down the toilet all day. She doesn't believe they have any toilets at all in that house. Also, did you ever notice there are never any birds flying by their windows? I bet it's not a real house, just one of those cardboard scenery things.

I was going to continue my thought about Kate's possible lies, but I could never be as profound as my Minka. I'll let the other humans do that.

Janine said...

K8 "I can't/don't sleep at night"
K8 "I wake up every morning"

UMMMMmmmmmm

MBach said...

If Kate/hate's mouth is open she is either lying, or heehaw laughing. I don't know which one disgusts me the most.

Everything I do, I do it for my kids -
THE biggest lie imo. She does everything for herself.

Being on the show doesn't hurt the kids -
ONLY the delusional sheep believe that one!

Mommy and Daddy will be together forever -
Within a few weeks of that lie, she told Jon the marriage was over.

Too many lies, too little time. As long a people have ears and Kate is able to speak, she will LIE.

Twice as Nice said...

First of all Kate is not a rule follower. It's follow Kates rules or you're gone. First it was her parents, then brother Kevin and SIL Jody, apparently Beth Carson and the latest victim, Jon. He didn't want to build up the brand, but have a wife and family life so he had to go too.

Now on to the "I'm a single mom just trying to support my kids."

1. How may of us can say we have even 1 kids money for a college education in the bank let alone 8?

2. How may of us have $230,000.00 in just LIQUID money in the bank?

3. How many of us have made millions doing a t.v. show?

4. How many of us have written a book that has brought us millions more?

5. How many of us have received freebies such as washers, dryers, new kitchen, ski equipment, motorcycles, etc.?

6. How many of us have been given the opportunity for free family vacations such as skiing, Disney, Hawaii, etc.?

7. How many of us have made $$ from love offerings at churches?

8. How many of us have made people pay to hear us speak and charged for an autograph picture?

9. How many of us can say we have round the clock nannies, a chef, body guards, housekeepers, etc.?

Now Kate has said she takes care of the finances. They should have plenty of money to stay afloat for years to come. By going back to nursing and Jon getting a job it would just be icing on the cake. She doesn't need another t.v. show, it's what she wants. They have made more money than most families will see in a lifetime. Their whining and bad mouthing each other while saying they do everything for their children is SO annoying!! Go home and be parents!

uneasy said...

The first one that jumps to my mind is the "no help, no nanny" story that Kate babbled for the first several years.

AnneMarie said...

Easy. ANYTIME either one of them opens their mouths.

"I know you're lying. I can see your lips moving."

whoever said...

Another one is how everything she does is for the kids.

Her plastic surgery is for the kids?
Her diamond ring is for the kids?
Her innumerable spa days are for the kids?
Her cars, expensive and inappropriate clothes, stiletto heels are for the kids?

I do understand that everyone needs some down time, some me time, and a few luxuries here and there for equilibrium.

But I think Kate overdoes the luxury items for herself, and does not seem to give much quality time to the kids at all.

Pamela Jaye said...

I'm feeling rebellious this morning. Not against the mods, against TLC. Feel like filling my Twitter with something like #TLCSucks till it trends. But would that be giving them more attention? Or giving them notice? I also hate the work "sucks."

Kate's lies... wow. where does one start? "I love you Jon"?
translation: I love you when you are my puppet. (and I want my puppet back)

what were their lies during the "vow" renewal?

Pamela Jaye said...

Can't read for beans. Jon lied about Kevin & Jodi, most notably.g

Tazzy said...

I think this might break your site with all the posts.

momtotwins2 said...

How about saying TRUTHS...the list may be shorter.

Otherwise, we have the "we couldnt get pregnant on our own"
and the classic
"I do it all for my kids"

Of course those are the obvious but my brain is fried from lack of sleep due to my 4 year old special needs child who kept crying for me last night and saying he didn't feel well. After the 10th time I slept next to him so I could comfort him when needed, or at least tried to sleep. We all know how well that goes. LOL
Its just something I actually do for my kids when they are coming down with something and need me..imagine sacrificing my beauty sleep for my child....but I digress..

Geri said...

"30 weeks bedrest"

"Only have $1000 left in bank to feed my kids, oh and gonna buy an 8-diamond ring with mother of pearl"

"We need love offerings" (passing the collection plate)

"The kids are very excited about my ring!"

"We'll be together forever"

"I used my 'mommy intuition' to know something wasn't right in the house and to come home."

"I tell them not to say 'paparazzi' (kid says "What's paparazzi?")"

"I got the idea to....." (fill in the blank of vacation spot or activity)

"Jon keeps the wooden spoon in the van in case he needs to stir lemonade" LOL

"They didn't know how to help us" Code for they confronted us with truth and we kicked them out of our lives.

I could go on and on.

whoever said...

At the beginning of her begging tour, she would say she had no money, and scrambling for change in the couch to make their mortgage payments, although it has been reported they were getting financial assistance from Jon's father, and that he left them a substantial sum in his will.

I think she has been lying about money all along.

I think she has been lying about her religion - she was always talking the talk with references to God and Jesus and praying and having Bible verses pasted on the walls. But she certainly wasn't walking the walk where it really matters - no kindness or respect in her words to Jon or other family members, no generosity to others in need (except for staged photo-ops when she gave copies of her fake book to sick children too young to read at St. Judes), no humility in her behaviour, no doing to others what she would want done to her.

Now, she seems to have dropped the religious aspect of her public persona as it might interfere with her brand.

ImFrancie said...

That Kate "just knew" she couldn't conceive the old-fashioned way.

Geri said...

Oh I forgot the most recent blatant, over the top ridiculous lie:

Kate: "I AM SELF-LESS"

O.M.G.

Susan said...

Kate - "I don't know when Jon moved out."

Jon - "I don't live in the apartment above the garage."

Both - "The show is not damaging to our children, in fact, they benefit greatly from it."

Actually, scratch all that - almost everything that comes out of their mouths are all lies and contradictions.

Mikemom said...

I used to hate the fans but I love them now! So when the fans gave you money, sent you gifts, you hated them but now that you "need them" you love them? Aint buying that one. They must have been laughing all the way to the bank with the love offerings.

MickeyMcKean said...

"I'm a Contract Honorer" - the problem with this lie is that Kate picks and chooses which contracts to 100% honor and which ones to conveniently forget about such as her marriage contract with Jon

Moi said...

Everything I do is for my kids

Pilgrim Soul said...

Love offerings?

Hyperstimulated ovaries/manipulation of medical science for financial gain?

How about "We only film for a few hours a week."

lara said...

RED ALERT, TLC RED ALERT: KATE GOSSELIN IS OPENING HER MOUTH!! Where does one start? Everytime Jon or Kate open their mouths, a lie or an "untruth" comes spewing out....I suggest, if we are going to start listing the lies, we go back to EPISODE 1- "The Begining of The End." or shall we call it "The Begging-ing of The End- Let the Begging Begin".......
When all this Gosselin-Gate started, a Reality Tv Reviewer said, (I believe I read it on here also) that this was/is "all hype & done for ratings. By the end of the year, they will be back together & we, the viewers will have been scammed. It's all a PUBLICITY STUNT!!" I believed it then & I believe it now- it's all being done for RATINGS!
What kind of children are they raising? What lessons are they teaching their children? "It's OK to lie, as long it's 'self-serving'?"
Jon's saying now that he's worried about the "type of man" his daughters will marry. I would be concerned not only for that, but also for what type of women his sons will marry- or if any of them will marry or even be able to TRUST anyone, in any type of relationship!! Nice job J&K -NICE JOB! Maybe there was a reason after-all why they couldn't reproduce on their own. (Darwin said that the dimwits will eventually weed themselves out)

Dr. Lillian Glass nailed it once again. Lies, deception, psychosis. What a very astute professional.

ICExploitation said...

1)The whole infertility story is suspect to me. I've had many friends who have started their families later (late 30's early 40's) and their doctors still told them to try naturally for at least a year. 24 married less than a year? Sell that BS somewhere else.

2)"Looking for change in the couch to pay the mortgage" - this family was never short of money. They just wanted to live their lives on someone else's dime, not theirs.

3)"No college funds" - boob jobs, Landcruisers, Mc Mansion - are we still crying poor? Also if they are so worried about college why are they spending $23K A YEAR times on 8 on grammar school.

No, I am not a hater, but some of this is so common sense. Sheeple/Fan same difference = STUPID

wlesser said...

How about the lie Kate told last night that she did not teach the kids the word paparazzi. I think it was the 5th b-day party where the paps were "stalking" them and she said something along the lines of we are going to call them the p-people instead of the paparazzi or something like that. Then last night she said,, the kids did not learn that word from me. That was one of the most wasted hours of my life!! why why did I watch that garbage?? She constantly contradicts herself. "I will work at Mcds if I have to." Last night she then said, going back to work as a nurse won't work as it is not enough money. And mcds is? Face it.. ALL of you, even the kids expect to continue this rich lifestyle now. Shame shame shame!

mommadiane5 said...

OK, Now, Kate is up to 30 weeks bed rest...hmmm. I got out my book and checked. It's a lie. In her book. in her own words, on page 51, second paragraph...Kate says she went into the hosp. on March 7, 2004. The babies were born on May 10, 2004. That is at most, 10 weeks. Not 30. She needs to reread her own story.

Laurie said...

I am a high road taker...that's because the bus is on the low road and it's easier to toss Jon under it from my lofty pearch on the high road.

I hate the paparazzi...however, I call them and let them know where I'll be on my little shopping expeditions and I dress for them every time I go out.

????? said...

The kids say "they want the old Jon back." WTF

Lower Heidelberg Neighbor said...

janine said:
Yes, we do go to church... Ummm well we haven't been in a while, umm it's just hard because it's ummm something 'we' did, the ten of us and now it's only 9 and it's just too hard.

I think about this awesome family with 11 kids at our Church. They are at 8am Mass daily. The kids and parents are well dressed, happy, well behaved and well adjusted. No drama, just love for the Lord.

I pray that the Gosselins see the error of their ways and try to bring it down and back centered on home for their kids.

Jenny said...

I'd just like to know who that person was last night pretending to be Kate Gosselin? She bore NO resemblance to the Kate we've seen over the past 5 seasons when she openly berated her husband, dropped all her extended family and friends, was rude to the organizers recently sent to just help her, etc. and just routinely was haughty, arrogant and unkind to people.

"I used to hate the fans but I love them now." That's because she suddenly realizes she NEEDS them for ratings if any show she does is going to survive. I have to give Natalie Morales credit, I was surprised at the hardball questions she put to Kate. Of course, Kate answered with non-answers. And when Natalie dared to suggest she was "being selfish" by continuing in the limelight and seeing the publicity generated that surely will affect the kids, part of her answer was to look stricken and tell Natalie that "that's very harsh." To say THAT was harsh...but for all of us to know how she's routinely dealt with people as the unkind and harsh diva she is, really had me sitting and shaking my head wondering, "Does she & TLC really think we're all buying this?!" And all the pauses for dramatic effect as she worked up some tears...and answers that included innuendoes about Jon being the bad guy and her family being non supportive...although I decided to watch hoping I could change my mind about her, I just couldn't finish watching...such a sneaky, tricky woman...she should get an Oscar for that performance.

Natalie said...

There was one epsiode (I think one of their many excursions somewhere) where Kate stated "I'm not good with rules"... Very honest statement made by her on the fly. Basically insinuating that she is "queen bee" (in her own mind) and will not follow any silly rules the "peasant" workers at these places she visits have.

Last night "I'm the RULE FOLLOWER"... Hmmm... Ya right!

And another one I love: "I wrote two books" ... Truth "I can't put together a proper sentance or use proper vocabulary in my every day language!"

Delusions of Grandeur said...

re: her LAME excuse about why she 'can't go back' (by removing herself & kids from the spotlight):

1) We've established the woman is delusional, but is she genuinely expecting us to believe that, even after actively seeking a private life out of the spotlight, people would continue to put her on magazine covers, and follow her with cameras? She WISHES this were so. Truth is, even with her DEATHGRIP on the pathetic 'fame' she currently has, she is destined to become but a vague recollection of a joke of a 'reality' show gone totally amok.

2)She states she must continue her current life because she can't possibly support 8 kids on an RN salary (though many others do) - Here's a suggestion, Kate: DOWNSIZE. Stop the plastic surgery, tooth veneers, the clothing and car purchases, the spa visits, sell the mansion, and live like the mere mortal you are.

Wishful thinking on her part that the public will continue to follow her every move.

And I'm sure she does see herself as 'selfless' - in her bent narcissist little mind, she bravely TOLERATES all this attention so as to support her beloved children - 'anything for my kids'.

Which, of course, brings me full circle to: The Woman is Delusional.

Please, woman, get REAL.

Don't Get Me Started said...

"My kids miss the filming crew" (yet they don't miss their entire extended family, which YOU have completed alienated???)

If you're so bloomin' 'selfless' why have you no friends?

Pathologically Pathological said...

Starting her interview with Ellen by stating, "I'M NOT GOING TO LIE TO YOU..."

She brings to life the old joke about Question: "How do we know when Kate is lying?" Answer: Her lips are moving." (but not her forehead, thanks to botox, which, I'm sure is also FOR THE KIDS.)

cdnmom47 said...

I think it would be easier to pick out her truths (if even there are any) than to list the hundreds if not thousands of lies she's told over the years.

Mendacity in Hooker Heels said...

I continue to wear my wedding ring (chant along with me) FOR THE KIDS.

Call the fire dept: Kate's pants are on fire again.

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

Found this little tidbit...Kate said she was on bedrest from 7 weeks to 30 weeks...(which was to correct her earlier statement of 30 weeks bedrest).
Look at her book, page 51. It states she went into the hospital for bedrest on 3/7/04. The tups were born 5/10/04.
That is 10 weeks.

Angel1 said...

It's good for the kids to be doing the show. Yeah, right Khate.
It's really good for them to be exploited for their parents gain.

Katezilla said...

Just read this on Jon's official Twitter - he's calling Kate out on her LIE:

"Got up early this morning took Mady and Cara to the bus, Came home to then hug my other 6 little morsels.

I stand behind Hailey because she is the only person who has spoken the brutal truth about (yes this whole mess of a trainwreck) as it is described. She has gotten the brunt of EVERYONE'S anger and disappointment. Kate even slipped last night and admitted we split up a year ago! Though she claims she "didn't remember" who called it quits.. Hey at least she said "didn't remember" instead of lieing."

she is evil said...

40 weeks is a full term pregnancy. Those tups were born how prematurely? I'm guessing at 32 weeks. So she went on bedrest 2 weeks after getting pregnant? (the math may not be accurate, but you get the point: 30 weeks of bedrest?). Kate, van we put you on 30 weeks' bedrest now?

HW said...

"I have a stack of bills in my purse that I can't pay...I have only $1,000 to my name."
*sniffle, sniffle*

HW said...

"I'm there the majority of the time, but Jon's there too."

dustilies said...

"That was a love-tap! Right, Jon?"

NurseMagoo said...

To paraphrase, "My entire day consists of making a meal, cleaning up after that mean, making a meal, cleaning up after that meal, making a meal...cleaning up."

Yeah right....all the while she had CRAFT SERVICES, not to mention cooks who made all those nice she meals that only needed to be heated up in the oven or microwave.

Must have been hard cleaning up after the lunches of 2 grapes, crackers, yogurt....all on a PAPER PLATE!

;) Lisa

Lucy said...

"I would never do anything to hurt my kids".
You, and the kids should be in therapy Khate. Sitting idle, doing nothing to help them and yourself ...ultimately hurts the kids.

LP said...

I am selfless - She misspoke she meant soul-less...

Vanessa said...

WOW! Great detective work on the
30 week bedrest! It would have been priceless if Nancy had had that damn book in front of her and called her on the obvious, blatant exaaaaggggerrratteed LIE!

Savannah said...

I hope Jon does a "His Story". Who's lying about a contract stating that Jon could see whoever he wants, as long as he stayed put on J&K+8? I believe that is what Jon told Kevin and Jodi?

amount?

fidosmommy said...

rural mom and Janine.... Two perfect posts! Thank you both. Enjoyed.

Sidney said...

When the family went to the NICU:

Kate said that the tups kept asking where they came from, so she decided to take them to see the NICU.

WHAT three year old asks where they came from?

Get real...

Merrilee said...

My kids asked why I still wore my wedding rings.

My kids asked why I quit wearing my wedding rings.

My kids were SO excited when I told them I was going to get a ring with mother of pearl and eight diamonds.

Kids DO NOT know nor care about wedding rings. Get real.

Taking my cue from Judge Judy:
If her lips are moving, she's lying.

Niki said...

"Jon, we don't refer to our lives in seasons!"

translation: "YOU are not aloud to refer to our lives in seasons, but its perfectly fine when I do it."

Also,

"My best friend Jamie ______"

Yeah right. Jamie was probably an actress hired by TLC to play Khate's bff.

- pancakes every Saturday morning
- movies every Friday night
- K8 was on bedrest for 30 weeks
- the kids love filming
- the kids don't eat junk food ( and on that note, the kids do not know what Doritos are, they just ask what those triangular thingys are)
- K8 does everything for the kids
- K8 loves being home with the kids
- K8 was too ill to help Jon get the kids ready for ski school let alone watch the kids in ski school
- vow renewal
- crying is a waste of time/I just sit in my car and cry/I cry all night
- the kids were so excited about K8's new ring
- Hannah needs her own room because she has migraines
- K8 going green
- K8 reading Despereaux to her kids for the product placement during the St Jude epi


I wrote these in less than 5 minutes and it doesn't even BEGIN to cover the lies told over the past 5 SEASONS, yes K8 I said SEASONS!

KatyKat said...

"I always use coupons." We now know coupons=gift cards.

"I only spend $100/wk on groceries." Sure you do, after you use your Giant gift card.

To be fair, here's a truth (For her).

"Boys are icky." I believe she truly believes that.

Pony said...

"Kate said that the tups kept asking where they came from, so she decided to take them to see the NICU.

WHAT three year old asks where they came from? "

I think mine did. But taking them to the NICU isn't going to answer the question. ;)

As for college funds - if Kate put away $800,000, there could be enough to send the kids to a state college when they are out of high school. There won't be any Ivy League schools in their futures - unless the get a scholarship or qualify for need-based aid. Somehow, I don't see her putting $2 million away right now for the kids.

Janine said...

...."I want the most FLUENT"
(instead of fluid care, life transition for my kids)...
I want, I decided, I am, I said, I will, I was, I can't,I won't,I,I,I,I,I,....

Cliff's notes for Kate's lies: everything between umm and uhh is a lie.

Tell 'em What They Want to Hear said...

Anyone remember the Mothers' Day episode, where Jon supposedly wupped up b'fast and served it to Queen Kate in bed, he then got the kids fed and dressed and THEN drove the fam an hour's car ride to church.

If they supposedly managed all this on such a busy morning as Mothers' Day, can someone please help me understand WHY Kate can't manage on her own to get her now-older, so more self sufficient, 8 to church on a regular Sunday now?

"Because there's only 9 of us"?? WTH is this supposed to mean? Does she belong to some weird cult where you are denied entry to church unless you have a party of 10 to match the 10 commandments?

Besides, since she's Can Do Kate now, where's the problem?? I mean if she can handle screen replacement, surely she can get 8 kids to a location on her own.

Not that I care one way or the other if people attend church, but once a person has come on as strongly as Kate has about being sooo "Christian" followed by her repackaged Can Do! persona, it's nauseating to hear such lame excuses about why she 'can't'. She 'can't' go to church. She 'can't leave this 'career'.

Pretty weak for the allegedy new and improved Can Do model.

Do they give tickets in Pennsylvania for LYING on tv?

konspiracytheory said...

So many, many lies - I'll just pick one, though:

On the first "Ask Jon & Kate" episode, a viewer wrote in asking how they got the kids to go immediately to time-out, with no arguing or complaining. Their response was along the lines of "I don't know, they just know they have to do it". The lie by omission, of course, is ignoring the fact that they use corporal punishment, something they freely discussed during at least one of their church-grifting sessions. I'm assuming that was a 'know your audience' tactic - i.e., church-goers would applaude their "spare the rod" stance (believe me, I know not all Christians would agree with that), while the TV audinece that 'loves' the children would be horrified to know that they were being beaten with a wooden spoon by their parents.

Can't See Sheep said...

whoever said...

At the beginning of her begging tour, she would say she had no money, and scrambling for change in the couch to make their mortgage payments, although it has been reported they were getting financial assistance from Jon's father, and that he left them a substantial sum in his will.
----------------------

Isn't this fraud? If you're telling people you have no money to get them to give you money, when you already do have money, isn't that somehow illegal? How is it different than what con artists do, you know the ones that end up behind bars for parting people with their hard earned cash? People willingly gave some of the cons money due to false representation on the con's part, what if in anyway is what Jon & Kate different? If anyone who knows the legality of it could enlighten me I'd really appreciate it.

I found this definition of fraud & it seems similar

Here's my question: Who the heck is telling Kate that her current strategy - i.e. doing the talkshow/interview circuit; telling the world she's 'selfless' instead of admitting that she's enjoying the excitement of her life; turning on the waterworks every 5 seconds, etc. - is a good one?

The Vanity Fair piece made it clear that Kate has plenty of 'handlers' and publicists, and her robotic behaviour on talkshows and interviews is clear evidence of fairly hardcore media training. And she's definitely got a long-term strategy (parlaying her fame into a talkshow of her own or whatever).

So who, exactly, in Kate's camp is telling her that it's a good idea to keep going on these shows? Who's telling her that it's a good idea to keep saying it's all for her kids instead of admitting up-front that she's enjoying the excitement of her life?

Is it possible they're right? I am ashamed to admit I watched the trainwreck of an interview with Jon and Hailey on Entertainment Tonight.

# Kate was irresponsible and selfish to twist Jon's ... - Wednesday, November 04, 2009 - Pamela Jaye"


ROFLMAO
This would make a great game: "Kate was irresponsible and selfish to twist Jon's"....fill in the blank.

chesterctymom said...

My favorite from when Khate was on the View...

"...they didn't see all the ripe follicles..." when talking about becoming pregnant with multiples. I guess the docs didn't know what there were doing...

Momof3kidsand3dogs said...

I was reading through the thread and had a question in reference to Kate's pregnancy with the 6. She makes a big "to do" about not putting anything in her mouth that could harm them. Now, I've only experienced 3 "normal" pregnancies (no premature, no multiples), but what IS she talking about? Aside from not drinking alcohol, not smoking and not doing drugs, what harmful things would she be putting in her mouth? Why is this such a huge sacrifice? Wether your pregnant with one or 6, you avoid the harmful substances I referred to. Was this such s big sacrifice on Kate's part? I know I'm rambling, but this just sounds so ridiculous to me. She's only doing what most every woman does when they're pregnant.

Everytime Kate says "Umm", a lie comes next.

Just had to post this here too: How 'bout how tiny Natalie Morales' legs & ankles looked next to Kates giNormous legs & ankles???
Too funny!

PA Momma said...

It's all just one big lie.

There is a weird "calm" right now: not much news. Well, as we all know, they save the BIG news for the weekends..Its a calm feeling like maybe Kate will go away, perhaps? People are sick of her? We can only dream. Im really very sick of seeing her face & hearing her lies.

DLCF said...

"It may be a crazy life, but it's OUR/ARE life."

Um, not any more. Thanks to the "parents", those kids and their lives belong to the world now and we would really like to give their lives back to them.

lifeoriley said...

Most comments here have touched on many of the lies--there are so many!
The one that really gets me angry is: "The kids aren't working. They're just being filmed living their lives."
along that line--"the show isn't set up/staged", and "this is the 'realest reality show' there is"
In one couch session Q&A, Kate responds to a question about the "realness" of the show by saying that they do things as they would normally do--that when Jen (the producer) suggests something different than the way Kate would do it, it makes her annoyed--Kate insists it's done the Gosselins' normal way.
This is a huge contradiction---if the show is a documentary type of program (ha!), why would the producer have to SUGGEST ANYTHING? Same for if it is not set up--why any discussion at all?
If the Gosselin kids are just being filmed living their lives--why does Kate say the show as allowed them to do things they wouldn't normally have gotten to do?

BarbMae said...

IMVHO the Gosselin's 15 minutes of fame is just about up. Jon is out there scrambling to pick up any kind of money he can by selling his lies and Kate is fighting to keep her cushy job w/TLC by telling her side of the lies also. Judging by Jon's appearance on Sunday and Kate's low ratings on Monday, not many people are interested in hearing "Their side of the story" which is J&K lies. The tabloid media has saturated us w/these two and people are just fed up and sick of these two morons. The paps are slowly not following their every movement on the planet and the drop-off, p/u at the schools for the kids is slowing also. The tabloids and entertainment shows are learning also that J&K are out. Deep down in my soul i will feel sorry for these 2 when they lose everything and have to live in the "real world" like "real people" and not reality show people. One of Kate's lies are you can never go back... Honey eventually you are going to have to go back and deal w/every day life w/o cameras, books, book tours, bodyguards, talk shows, tanning salons, etc.. and I pity you when that reality hits you because it will be pretty ugly, you wake up in the middle of the night just wait.... (same for Jon also but he has family that can help him adjust). I think the kids will adjust to normal life just fine. Mady and Cara will love to go back to life before the tups and the tups will find a new adventures in going grocery shopping, after school activities and just being normal 5 year olds. The end is coming I can feel it, we just need to wait and see.

Cheryl B said...

Jon smoking, a lie by omission. I am a smoker. The three times a smoker wants to smoke, before and after a flight, and after a meal.
We know how many times they were taped flying and eating.

The number of times Jon has been seen smoking lately, tells me he is not a casual or new smoker. Just another Kon.

Vanessa said...

Can't See Sheep, good point. It's just like the scamming door to door canvassers begging for money for some charity that doesn't even exist.

readerlady said...

The biggest lie of all - "mommy and daddy will always be together".

Re Kate and the 30 weeks bedrest - I believe the tups were born at 30 weeks, so that's impossible, unless she went on bedrest the instant she had unprotected sex with Jon. Gross exaggeration, if not outright lie. However - the fact that she went into the hospital 8 weeks before the tups were born doesn't preclude the fact that she could have been on bedrest at home before. A friend of mine with a high risk pregnancy was put on bedrest at home in her 3rd month, and was hospitalized in her 6th month. She was allowed up for a limited amount of time, including bathroom trips, while at home.

ICExploitation said...

FidosMommy - The children's school doesn't post their tution cost but other posters who are familiar with the school, state that $23K is around the amount they charge. Granted because the tups are in "Jr. Kindergarten" the fees may be less.

Vanessa said...

Another thing about bedrest, it's not only for the health of the fetuses, but also for the health of the MOTHER! She was on bedrest just as much for her safety as for the tups.

Rose said...

In her interview with Natalie Morales, Kate admitted (complete with the crocodile tears) that she lies awake at night, wondering if she's making the right choices for her kids. But wait. I thought she said before that there was "nothing harmful about it", and that the kids were "positively affected, if anything". She referred back to her months on bed rest and rationalized that if she refused to eat anything that might harm her unborn children at that time, then why on Earth would she be forced to harm them now?

Any woman who says she is kept awake at night must be really concerned with one of two things: 1) her children's emotional well-being and safety, or 2) getting as many people to feel sorry for her as possible. So which one is it, Kate? I can guess the answer, but can you actually tell us honestly?

Kate also said that the kids are never forced to film, and if they want to be away from the cameras, then that's the way it is, no questions asked. My question is if the same rules apply when the time comes for Kate to shoot her mouth off about her kids and the private things they say/do. She says she protects the cameras from revealing anything too personal about them, but did Kate actually sit 8-year-old Cara down before her interview with "People Magazine" and ask if it would be all right for her to tell the world how Cara crumbled into a little ball of hysterical tears when she found out about her parents' divorce? Did Kate ever ask Alexis if she could tell the story about how a little classmate's innocent remark of "I watch your show!" made Alexis feel uncomfortable at school? Did Joel ever give Mommy permission to tell the cameras that he will probably meet a girl one day who falls in love with his looks, marries him, and later finds out how "clueless" he really is? Tell me, Kate. Did you ever run that past your son and get his full consent to discuss it behind his back? Or did you just play the "I'm the mom who can do what she wants" card and just do it anyway, for your own personal gain? Are you confident that your children will be okay with all of this when they get old enough to watch the footage for themselves and see just how much of their private lives was put out there for the whole world to see?

Elizabeth said...

Kate said that if she and Jon were just normal people going to their real-world jobs, then that would have torn their marriage apart anyway, and probably faster than the show itself did.

This means that either Jon and Kate married for reasons other than true love, or their marriage was doomed to fail the second Kate delivered the sextuplets. She and Jon always said "We're a family, and we're in this together," but now Kate is saying that a divorce would have happened no matter what they did, whether they were in the spotlight or not.

Jon is guilty of telling plenty of lies of his own, but when he was asked if he and Kate would still be together if it weren't for the show, he at least had the honesty to say, "I don't know. I don't know if I can answer that." Kate, on the other hand, seems to have some psychic ability to know exactly how things would have panned out in a completely different scenario.

Payson48 said...

I remember Nancy Grace stopping Jon in mid-sentence--WHY IS IT ALL ABOUT YOU? Nancy needs to meet Kate!! Me,me,me,I,I,I, Jon never spoke correctly, on the couch, or breathed for that matter. Jon has made bad choices in the last 4-5 months but he hasn't made ANY choices for 10 years while under Kates control. Going back to that TOXIC relationship would NOT be a good thing for Jon. I bet he feels FREE even though he's floundering right now. Jon should stay quiet for awhile and let Kate do the BOO HOO interviews-her ship will sink.

______________________________

This totally speaks to the speculation that Kate targeted Jon (who was in another relationship when they met) because he was a cute Asian guy with a well-off family, and she wanted lots of cute "China Doll" (gack) babies. She married for the DNA, knowing/hoping the money would come soon after.
It also speaks to Jon's follower mentality.

Found a doozy at ZonTv: "You might not know about this since I have not seen it discussed when Kate stated that she was a ‘contract-honoror’ (whatever). Last year or the year before, she did not honor contracts she signed with some churches and backed out of them. The reason was never stated, I believe and in the meanwhile, she KEPT the speaking engagement fee."

Kate's parents must be so proud! She accuses them so some sort of horror from her childhood that took her 10 years to get over. Classy.

Just wait Kate! You have 8 kids who will line up and expose you! It will take them more than 10 years to get over the damage of living their young lives on tv. (Look, my first poop in a potty! "Hanna pooped in her underwears"! Mom and Dad arguing like cats and dogs. Mom mocking the kids. Mom only talking to the camera crew, ignoring thier please for help during fights!Taking away their dogs as a jab at dad. So cute). Ask the quints from Canada or any child actor! The spotlight is not for kids and stage parents will ruin them every time.

Maddy and Cara only have 9 more years before they get their own managers and write a tell-all book. They are old enough to see how and why things happened in their house. Then we can find out all about Kate's lies. When they become adults, maybe little Hannie will email Kate once in a while.

Peg said...

From Natalie Morales interview 11/02/09 (part 4 of 5 on YouTube):

Natalie: You don't even let them (the kids) say the word paparazzi, why not?

Kate: Because it's not normal. A five-year-old should not know the word paparazzi. That's just weird...

Natalie: Yet they do. And why do they know the word paparazzi?

Kate: Um, not by my doing, I can tell you that.


School Days Episode 10/12/09 (part 3 of 3 on YouTube, at the end)

Kate is sitting at the table with all of her five-year-olds:

Kate: Everything went as planned. I think we foiled the plans of the paparazzi to a degree and that made me very happy.

Holly said...

"My parents don't know how to help us so they are not involved."
I have a theory on why Kate is not close with her parents. Kate is a frightening carbon copy of my husband's mother--narcissistic, selfish, and martyr-ish. My MIL would fall all over herself trying to be sickeningly fake-nice to her husband's parents while she did little for her own, very often insulting them in front of her children for stupid things. The difference? Her inlaws had a lot of money while her parents were simple working people. She really resented and was embarassed by it. We had the directive that the grandchildren HAD to go visit the rich ones at least so many times per year so that they would think my MIL had given them the most loving grandchildren of all, so that she would be "remembered" in the will. She really said that out loud to her kids. She could have given a hoot if her kids even knew her parents' names. And in her will, she only left $$ to her girls and not the boys. Remind you of anyone?

My heart really goes out to those children, these parents are just idiots. I can't believe they are concerned with profit rather than looking out for their children's well-being. I really was team Jon but as of now I will stick with just team 8 those kids will hate both of them for how their lives have been ruined by them and by TLC. My heart just breaks for those 8 children.

Even considering Kate's character, I doubt she married Jon because she thought she could make money off him and their kids. Remember that in the beginning, she only wanted three children. But I do agree that she probably got caught up very easily in the "cute Asian guy" factor. I remember her telling People Magazine that all her friends used to tell them, "You're just like Barbie and Ken!" She then went on to say, "But man, I was so young. I wanted to be a mom..." which signals that she was all about the fairy tale of the relationship, and not so focused on building a substantial marriage. That's not to say that plenty of women don't get married for the wedding and the "fairy tale" feeling at the beginning, but with Kate, in particular, it's pretty obvious, especially considering what she's saying now about how she and Jon would have most likely divorced either way.

I'd hate to be one of those kids when they're old enough to watch this interview and see how their own mother said that the "stress" of raising them and working full-time would have worn them down just the same. Kate thinks she can tell them that it's not their fault, then turn around, say something like that, and have it caught on tape?? Smart move...

Button Button said...

Besides her speeding ticket, she did leave the scene of an accident she caused.

She thought it was quite okay for her to leave the scene, because, ummmm, well, because she is Kate, for Pete's sake!

Here is a prediction: K8 is near the end of the 'organic ship lolli-pop' (I'm sorry, I crack myself up) and there will be nothing to do but find a 'normal job' Steve will still be trailing, carrying her bags and she will say "It just happened, we were best friends, I had no one else... he was there and it just happened, yes... we are in love. His wife, my BFF is fine with it, as a matter of fact, the three of us are moving everyone to the mansion. "

SpringerPovichGosselin said...

WTH is this total load of crap with Jon and Hailey supposedly being honestly interviewed by Mary Hart?

Are we to believe this was not scripted? SERIOUSLY? Give me a break.

The whole Gosselin thing has become increasingly cheap and vulgar. I do not want to know about their personal life - it's none of my business and way TMI - it's beyond tacky to share this kind of information on nat'l tv. WHO with any intelligence and/or class would DO such things as the Gosselins are willing to do, just to maintain their deathgrip on 'fame'?

Besides, it's all plotted, planned, and scripted - nothing more than really shoddy PR tactics. Anything and I mean ANYTHING will be said/done by TLC, Jon, Kate, and now we have to add Hailey to the cast to keep viewer attention.

This 'show', these people, have sunk to the depth of the likes of Jerry Springer and Maury Povich - cleaning out the absolute bottom of the barrel of human debris, all for ratings.

And trying to convince us this is 'reality'.

It's not only unentertaining, it's downright INSULTING.
Disgusting.

I remember a few months ago Kate was telling the story about having to eat so much bacon while pregnant, for the calories. Now she is embellishing the bed rest story with how she only put healthy food in her mouth. Is she trying to twist things with this?

Yes she is twisting things. Remember, if her lips are movin', she's lyin'.

she is evil said...

Didn't know bacon was so good for babies in utero. Is it the nitrites, the ridiculous amounts of salt or what? There were far healthier ways of getting the extra fat in Kate's diet that her doctors allegedly advised. Judging by her ass, I'd say Kate of Arc looooves bacon. And so do I. But I've never eaten it "for my kids". I'm not a great mom or martyr because I've eaten it. And I've even fed it to my kids without billing it as a rare treat. The woman is so demented that she manages to say asinine things about pork products!

Vanessa said...

Saying she watched everything she put into her mouth is yet another one of her dramatic martyr embelishments. So superficial yet she thinks she's being...I don't know...I can't think of a word.
"Wow! You ate healthy foods? Amazing! How DID you do it? Oh yes, you had SIX babies growing inside of you! Yes, when you have SIX as opposed to just one then you must make that sacrifice!
I wish I had SIX so I could have monitored everything that I ate too! When I just had one baby inside of me I had a bottle of Merlot by the bedstand." UGH!!!

Janine said...

Radar Online says TheLyingChannel is bringing some big gun witness' to court (my words) I think that's their schtick. True, Jon had several contacts with questionable people and they have each already turned on him. I do not believe any of them. Kate Major (a TABLOID reporter tells all after a very short, one sided romance) The Baby-sitter... what was her deal? I am sure these witness' are motivated but I bet if Jon continues to be sincere (even if it's misguided) he will prevail. Jon... I don't know if the reports are true. At this point, you are your kids best hope. Don't let them intimidate you. Be yourself.

Niki said...

"My relationship with the paparazzi is Hate/Hate"

Lol. Sure it is...

Janine said...

Radar Online is reporting TLC states in court documents that Advertisers complained about Jon's erratic behavior.
What planet do we live on where a man, a father of 8 who has been dumped by his wife, sent to the shed to live after years of public humiliation... is expected to have nothing but stellar behavior for their image and their profit?
It scares me to think anyone can have their life hijacked and that anyone can dictate how our sorrow or our melt down should look.

During the tummy tuck episode: Kate says "We do not have the money to do this ourselves and even if we did,we wouldn't because we have more important ways to spend our money".

MomIAM said...

Now that I think of it, I was careful about what I ate when I was pregnant too. Does that mean I belong to a select club?

Didn't think so.

she is evil said...

Jon isn't the first tv personality to behave in a way that advertisers may not appreciate. But his behavior was tame compared to some: think of scandals involving celebs and drugs, prostitutes, drunk driving, spousal or child abuse, and even worse. Where has any tv network sued the tv star for bad behavior? What about Kate's far worse behavior? If they're unhappy enough with said behavior, networks let the tv star go. Oftentimes, they throw their support behind their star. I don't get it.

Thanks.

The same school located in a different mid-sized city has these rates:

2009–2010 Tuition

JK: $9,100
K: $12,070
1–4: $14,740
5: $15,525
6–8: $16,080
9–12: $16,190

The total tuition includes lunch, yearbooks, admission to arts and sporting events, and some lab and technology fees, but does not include books or transportation.

That would be $84,080 per year.
There might be discounts for multi-child families, but I don't know.
