Just checked out "kate-Her story" deleted scenes. More about the ring, tabloids, THE WIG! Just more bs. It does look like she's being fed what to say through an earpiece. It's nothing like how she interviews on the couch at home with her peeps. You know, the hell with grammar and coming across like a true condescending b$#@%. She's ssspppeeeaaakkingg veeerrry slowwwly and saying the same same same things over and over. That's it Kate, stick to your story no matter what. Deny, spin, and answer with a non-answer. The thing is she can't pull it off, she's not a professional tv personality with YEARS of acting/drama coaches behind her.

Oh yes! The insanity continues....
Why can't Jon and Kate be a parent first, which was the whole premise of the show, and rather consider and focus on the humiliation their children have to go through based on their parents' non-stop selfish, self-serving behavior? Me, me, me, money, money,money, never a thought about how all of this affects their children.

Earth to Jon said...

What's the point of that weird Jon video? Is it supposed to be serious? Is it supposed to be humorous? If he wants people to begin taking him seriously, how exactly is this video supposed to foster this?

Did Anyone See This? said...

Do I remember seeing a picture of Nana Janet arriving at the mansion, sometime this spring or summer?

Hard to Keep Loving Jon said...

Oh, come on, Jon's video is a riot and a great pun on himself. At least he has a sense of humor about his foibles.

It was a joke and intended to be one. And it was so, so much better drama/acting than Khate's.

I remember her there, I believe the picture was when Jon was at the house. Although, I tried finding it on sosugary recently when Nana Janet died and couldn't find the picture.

In the newest issue of Vanity Fair, there is an article by James Wolcott about reality shows. J&K are mentioned briefly, but it is a brilliant take on reality T.V. Worth reading if you get the magazine.

about Nana Janet said...

Nana Janet continued to look after the kids until recently, she simply wasn't filmed.

Here is a quote from one of her grandchildren that I found on a forum.

"Ok, I am Nana’s granddaughter, along with Tracie, we are sisters. I don’t even know why I’m replying to this, because mostly everything people say and what is on TV is not true. Anyways, my Nana and Poppop never moved to Tennessee. I think I would know, they have lived in the same house for awhile now, and have never moved out of Pennsylvania. Jon and Kate lived in Pennsylvania close to my grandparents and then they moved to a town about an hour away right after they had the sextuplets. They then moved back closer to my Nana and Poppop’s house (still in Pennsylvania). Yes, my Nana still would go over to their house (both houses) and do the ironing and help around the house. She was just not on the episodes anymore. My Nana has passed away now so please don’t say anything else about her that is not true! Everyone who knew her loved her and she was so fun to be around!"

WonderfulNanaJanet said...

About Nana Janet-

I think everyone knows she was a wonderful, unselfish person who agreed to help out with the Gosselin family.

I am not sure who said she moved to Tennesse, but regardless, we all know you are stating facts about your grandmother, who was such a likeable,unselfish and giving person. The world needs more people like her.

May Nana Janet rest in peace, and we will all keep her and your family in our prayers.

Aunt Chris said...

From the New York times, Page Six:

That club owner John "J.E." Englebert is planning an "Anti-Gosselin" fundraiser for Planned Parenthood at his Suzie Wong sake lounge to make "a point of thinking of the victims, the children of their loveless marriage"

Rose said...

I read the interview that Kate did with Good Housekeeping Magazine for their November 2009 issue. How fitting, considering the family appeared on the cover exactly one year ago, in November 2008, engulfing the readers in one lie after another as they swore that their marriage was made of all the true and lasting stuff.

One thing that jumped out at me the most was how Kate not only continues to masquerade as a practicing Christian, but what she has been telling her daughter Cara, whom Kate claims has been anxious lately about making sure the alarm is on at night. Desperate to tell the whole world what a great mommy she really is, Kate says that whenever Cara exhibits that fear, she just tells her that God is watching her and that that's all that will ever matter. Same with the other kids.

I guess we can assume, then, that the show and everything it's come with really is having some negative impacts on the kids, isn't it? Kate loves to tell us that there is "nothing harmful about it", but I gotta tell you, there is something slightly disturbing in that story about Cara. Oh, will Kate ever tell us the truth??

Kate Gosselin Women Conference Interview. "umms n uhhs".

Youtube

goawayfools said...

Wait. A. Minute. Rose posted about Kate's Good Housekeeping interview and how Cara wanted to be sure the alarms are on at night. Kate, in her usual obtuse fashion, reminds the readers of her Christianity by saying that she comforts this kid by telling her as long as God is looking after her, she's ok. Very interesting comment from the woman who parades around with a bodyguard to insure HER safety. Why does Kate need Steve when she could just take solace in the fact that God is watching over her too? Hmm. Guess Kate's safety and sense of security are more important than Cara's. And why is Cara so fearful if their reality show, as Kate claims, has had no negative effects on the kids? Anyway, I'm pretty sure God wouldn't mind at all if Kate got off her big, thonged, lazy butt and turned on the alarm for the poor kid. Man, Kate even uses GOD! Maybe the spikes on her head will make it easier for that lightning bolt to find her.

goawayfools said...

Re: Ums and uhs on video from women's conference. If you look at the tags for this video on YouTube, they read as follows: Kate Gosselin, idiot, book tour, long beach women's conference. Had to laugh. Gift of gab, yeah right.

"The Insider" (of course) has pictures of Jon, his Mom and relatives having dinner in Hawaii. Finally a good PR whore move.

Hate to beat a dead horse, but are the pics of the kids going to gymnastics recent? I only ask beeeeecause she's got her ring on.

I thought she told Nancy Morales she'd finally taken it off. oh boohoo

regarding nana janet moving to TN. I thought on the St Jude episode Nana Janet made a visit and stated that they moved away.

Poor Cara! She's smart enough to see the bodyguard and Kate's fear. God bless those kids. And may God protect them... from their mother.

It doesn't really matter if she moved or not, IMO. I think the 'granddaughter' entry was a tlc pr move.
If 'Nana Janet' continued to visit, there would be multiple pics of her comings and goings.

Nah, Kate threw her away just like she threw everyone else to the curb.

Her parents, her siblings. Her neighbors, church, her 'helpers.' Her friend Beth. Jon. The last to go will be the kids.

Everyone else, "who didn't know how to help us."

Vera said...

"goawayfools said...

___________________________________

My take is that Kate often goes out of town even when it's not Jon's turn to be home, and the kids are left in the house overnight with just hired help sleeping in the basement. And even when it is Jon's turn, he sleeps over the garage. Cara has surely seen the paparrazzi cameras pointed at her, seen those intrusive pictures of herself online, seen the stares and gawks of strangers in public. She's a smart child, she knows the difference between her abnormal life and the normal lives of her school pals. It's not hard to see why the sweet little girl would feel vulnerable and unsafe and wants to know the alarm is on. Not hard for anyone to see but Kate, that is.

Rose said...

Also, in the Good Housekeeping article, Kate said that Mady and Cara are still struggling with the "who are my true friends?" issue, and Kate responds by telling them to "just be kind," and if they're really their friends, it will be obvious. "It's a lesson for kids AND adults," the ever-philosophical Kate proceeds to say.

Yeah, because Kate shows such a shining example of warmth and kindness toward others, doesn't she? I wonder if the kids know how many "friends" she has failed to keep, and if Kate will ever bother taking her own advice someday.

jibberjabbers said...

How is radar getting exclusive clips of episodes that haven't aired yet?

Looks like they are working overtime to bash Jon. They have clip of Jon ignoring the kids and talking to the paps. And I agree, it does look BAD.

But they failed to recognize Kate's "time to organize" clip where the kids are screaming and crying and Kate continues to talk to the TLC camera instead. Showing no concerns for her children's safety.vid here

Then have another vid of Kate saying she should have put a leash on him. (BUT, failed to recognize that he was on a leash for 10 or so years). WTH is Kate talking about?

She broke it off in Oct 2008....
vid here

Anonymous said...

Just saw a post on RadarOnline about Kate bumbling on about the dogs and the collars put on for them to help "set their boundaries". She then tries to be slick and say, "Maybe we should have gotten them for someone else, too." She then bugs her eyes wide open and shrills, "Where did that come from?" She is so annoying, I seriously have no words for her!

They did the gymnastics before the ring came off.

Natalie Morales interview was October 28, 2009.

Gymnastics was September 29, 2009.

They're trying to make it even. SOOO many episodes of Khate being an irresponsible parent, nagging biotch, ungrateful witch, evil to the core...now they're trying to fill the gap, how as many "BAD JON" moments they possibly can in the last couple of episodes. And guess what? She's going to stick it to him some more! "SEEEE everyone, THIS is what I've had to deal with!"

kate_in_cali said...

It was Miss Beverly and her husband Terry that moved to Tennessee, not Nana Janet. Miss Beverly was also the laundry folder/ironer for them. She bought Jon underware for Christmas in that epi. where they do the cookies and caroling.

Kat said...

Kids look like they're cold in the outside-the-gym shots. Anyone (Hello, Kate?) think to bring along sweaters for kids who are wearing leotards in PA in late Sept?

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

After feeling so sorry for Jon that she bought the man underwear for Xmas, I wonder how Miss Beverly felt when she saw the mansion and all the rest of the extraneous noveau riche CRAP Jon and Kate have somehow managed to scrape together the bucks to buy for themselves.

Ah, well, I guess Miss Beverly can take her place in line with all the other people who, out of the goodness of their hearts, donated 'love offerings' to these two Greed&Fame-O-Holics.

Jackiepaper said...

As many posters have implied--ROL spies must be diligent(?)employees whose daily assignment is to check posts on GWOP and try to favorably enhance the image of the queen. Questions that come to mind are
- why would you publish a picture of anyone taking out the trash unless you are trying to impress how diligent and ontask on the homefront the queen is.
-why does it take three tups and the queen to take out said trash?
-after showing that the queen loves her fancy shoes(shades of Imelda Marcos), why does she suddenly go casual and wear her Uggs to the bus stop?
_why are these issues? because as Larry King said to Jon---we really should have never really known who you are? Right?

Just My Few Canadian Cents said...

TLC can now be more appropriately referenced as "Totally/Truly Lacking Class" rather than The Learning Channel.
It's Monday, and true to form, Radar was out pimping the Gosselins to boost ratings for TLC.
But while you expect Jon and Kate to publicly duke it out in court and tabaloids, I never thought TLC would demean and lower itself into the fray. It really doesn't reflect well on the network, which should never have abandoned their professionalism despite the impending lawsuit with Jon. I for one won't be watching their programming anymore.

Showing a video of Jon talking on the phone when one of the girls is talking to him - yes, it's not flattering footage. But I've seen this exact scene repeat itself practically every time I've visited friends and relatives with children. It doesn't make it right, but what parent hasn't done that on occasion and it pales in comparison to Kate's parenting. But more importantly, the camera didn't show what may have gone on prior to Jon not responding to the girl tup's request while he was on the phone. He may have asked her to wait until he finished talking and she, being five, had trouble waiting and interrupted him. We'll never know and judgment should be suspended for Jon for this. And if this is all the dirt TLC has to demean Jon, well, the footage wouldn't disqualify Jon from parent-of-the-year contests.

And for Kate to have the nerve to comment on Jon's phone use is so puerile, desperate and hypocritical of her.

And her commment about putting Jon on a leash like they did the dogs -well, hopefully Kate will receive a dictionary this Christmas. She clearly has no clue what the "high road" is.

Vanessa said...

Well at least Jon doesn't haul off and wack the kid's bottom for DARING to interupt his phone conversation.

Tami said...

One good thing could come out of this stupid phone business. Both parents could be aware of how much they are on those phones ignoring their kids! I hope BOTH of them spend less time texting and talking to nobody and spend more time paying attention to the kids. What makes me sick is how it is so one sided. She is on the phone in every pic with her kids but it is fine because it is business? Nah. She has no job and no business on that phone! Both of them need to just hang it up!

Anyone notice the Juicy Juice box in the back of the car? I very clearly remember reading that Nestle, maker of Juicy Juice, was no longer a sponsor. What's up?

++++++++++++++++++
No need had it been a quick trot from the gym to the van.

However Katie seemed to have misplaced her key and fished and fished in her purse for it, all while the paprazzi snapped away.

We all saw through this kate. and your kids will someday too.

Anne said...

I was just checking out Radar Online's Kate photos of the day (illegal parking today). Of course I noticed today's $400 errand running spike heels.

Just curious, has she been photographed running errands in the same $400+ shoes yet? I don't think I've seen the same pair twice. This poor single mom's shoe total has to be nearing $10,000 for the year, if not over.

Auntie Bon said...

TMZ just shoed KG retrieving her trash can and putting it into the blue van. If course she did this with her tight jeans and 4" heels. UGH!

Hard to Keep Loving Jon said...

jibberjabbers "vids" are the best!
Thank you.

The highlights of Khate trying to concentrate on the earpiece are priceless! (Not to mention "exposed" -- ewwww)

Hope everyone watched this.

Vanessa said...

In every single fricken picture of her, not only does she have a different pair of shoes, but it's a different handbag AND sunglasses.
Honestly, just own up to it Khate, you DON'T CARE ABOUT SAVING MONEY.
YOU DON'T CARE ABOUT COUPONS, SALES ETC. The character that you and TLC tried to create never materialized. You have always been a selfish, self-centred, obsessive consumer of 'stuff'!

hlc1010 said...

Has anyone read the latest on Radar about Kate 2 and Jon's handwritten contact? Hilarious. The man gets stupider by the day. You know Kate is laughing about this one.

If Kate cared about her kids and their future, She would not have to worry about the show going off the air. She would have enough saved and invested to tide her over for a very long time.

I'd say the same thing about Jon, but Kate controled the wallet in that marriage, so I don't honestly think he had a lot to say about the finances.

I saw that and the blond boy ( don't know his name) was talking about how strong she is. "She's super hero strong. She's got Mom strength." It was pretty funny.

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

But what is she going to sue about?

Kate Major quit as reporter of a national tabloid to be a personal assistant of a D list celebrity? No, actually she resigned before this supposed contract! She resigned before 7/24 the first reports, this contract was 7/28.

My guess: she was given the choice to resign or be fired and chose to leave. Then while out drinking with Jon boy, he says yea you can be my personal assistant on a scrap of paper. He'll be broke by then anyway.

Saw some pix of Kate getting Dunkin Donuts this a.m. Sure am glad Dunkin makes those organic donuts.

How can Jon cheat on Hailey? They have broken up.

Vanessa said...

What? No overpriced Starbucks on a "golden platter" for her oh so deserving offspring? Just lain ol' Dunkin Donuts. I guess she only get the good stuff, no biscotti for the kiddies. How poor can you be when you're seen with a styrofoam cup on a daily basis? First rule of thumb when you want to save some money is CUT OUT unecessary spending. She should have a chat with Suze Orman.

Was just messing around at People and it's obviously talking about Oprah's departure, but one of the articles asks who will replace her and one of the people they mention is Kate?! Really!?! Oh boy, I hope that her name doesn't appear long in the discussion.

Here's a copy of the link to the article:
