Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all and may 2010 be a good year for us all.

What are your wishes for the ten Gosselins in 2010?

Yes, Call Me a Hater from Nova

Yes, call me a hater.

I hate reports that Kate (possibly Jon, too) sought attention for having twins, cue reports (and pictures) of Kate pushing a stroller carrying the twins, along with a sign that read "The Gosselin Twins".

I hate that it is quite possible that J&K became parents of sextuplets through devious means, and that at the time they showed no ability to care for so many children.

I hate the reports that Jon told colleagues that since he and Kate were having sextuplets, that he "would never have to work again", while searching the internet for sponsers and freebies.

I hate the reports that Kate spent much of her time while pregnant with the sextuplets also searching for sponsers and freebies.

I hate that J&K shopped around a video tape of their infants looking for a TV show.

I hate that TLC signed on to this and gleefully kept it going long after it should have been obvious that what they were doing was detrimental to the children involved.

I hate all the lies they told to the public and churches to keep the freebies coming in.

I hate that the friends and relatives that were concerned about what was happening were blocked from the lives of both the parents and the children.

I hate that Jon took so long to pull filming, and all the immature actions he has since taken.I hate that while TLC was coddling Kate and protecting her, Jon turned to people who didn't have his or his children's best interests at heart; instead of turning to the people who have loved them before the whole stupid reality thing blew up in his face.

I hate that Kate was given a pass from the media for so long.

I hate that it still seems that no one who has a direct ability to change things are still not putting the CHILDREN FIRST!

I hate that every time it seems that events are moving towards a better life for the kids, something always seems to derail it.

I PRAY that something happens very soon to turn those kids lives into a happier, more loving, enjoyable, and normal childhood.

I PRAY that they get the love, support, training, and guidance they need to divorce themselves from the toxic influences of their early years and go on to become happy, healthy adults.

So, yes, the sheeple can say I'm a hater, but not for the reasons they think.

I Don't Get It Either

Can'tSeeSheep said...They're just trying to keep that idiot creature in the news & fresh in people's minds until her new show airs so that she doesn't become last year's news. These are incredibly silly & childish things they're putting out there. It's obvious she's not a cougar, she's not old enough & many men have sounded off about her lack of hotness, just look at the comment boards on other sites, especially when they ask if kate is hot, men tend to sound off with some pretty negative responses.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Kate does not appeal to men. No man wants to be henpecked and hounded that way. She has certainly let the world know how she feels about men.

Kate does, however, appeal to a lot of women. For some very strange reason there are some women of every age group who absolutely worship the ground she walks on.

Why is that?

Do they wish they could treat men the way she does? Why do they see her as incredably organized? Don't they understand Kate gives orders and other people carry them out?

How on earth can they see her as a wonderful mother?

I don't get it.

Thanks to Merrilee.

Kate Too Controversial?

Kate is no longer associated with Paula Deen according to radaronline.

Where Will They Be?

I can't wait until 5-10 years from now when someone does a "Where are they now?" about the Gosselins. What do you think? Where will Kate, Jon and the kids be in 5 years? 10 years? I think Kate will do her show on TLC. It will draw some viewers in the beginning out of curiosity and then the ratings will drop. TLC, out of principle, may keep it on their line up for 2 years but then it will be cut. The kids will be filmed but the focus will be on Kate as the single mom dynamo. Kate will come out with her tell all book, she'll recommit to her faith, she'll try and reconcile with her family (both things for appearances only) and then she'll do the talk show circuit about how resilient she is and how great the kids are doing and how she's so glad Jon's out of her life. She will hang out with her "BFF" Jamie, who will become her personal assistant.


Thnks to silimom.

Court Allows an Injunction Based on TLC's Request

TLC got the injunction to keep Jon from accepting engagements not approved by TLC. The court case itself won't be until spring. Does anyone think that TLC will approve any requests from Jon?

Technical Difficulties

Blogger has had off and on problems with comment moderation for over a week now and it's been getting worse today. The comments are not leaving the queue when moderated and other problems.

Blogger has comments ALL messed up. Please do not comment about your previous comment did not go through, was rejected, etc. That alone is grounds for the second, third, or fourth attempt to get rejected. Also please give us time before sending comments through again. Blogger sending them to us multiple times itself is more than problem enough. It's latest glitch is sending us comments on posts closed weeks ago.

Thanks!

Now I've found that comments that I know were approved, have not shown up yet. Hopefully Blogger will resolve their issues soon.

New Article About Jon


Kids on the Bus

What do you think about the kids having to get up early and take the long bus ride to school? Is it worth it?

Another Sheeple Wanders By

I'm grumpy today for various reasons so I'll let our gentle readers deal with this one.


I came here to see what all the fuss was about, and I have to say, I don't understand why everyone is SOOO anti Kate. I am married with four kids, and there are times that my husband and I are not at our best. We screw up, we are human. We get mad at each other and probably say things we shouldn't....EVERYBODY DOES. People will not cut her any slack and keep dredging up things from so long ago. She has admitted to being wrong about some things, and has tried to change (for example, she admits that fans used to irritate her, and now she realizes that she was being stupid, and appreciates what they do for her), but you won't let her. The bottom line is that people here assume they know her based on an EDITED TV show. I don't assume that tells me anything. What I can see with my own two eyes, so unfortunately, is Jon's bad behavior. THIS I believe. If people could stop hating for just a minute, it will make you feel better. Didn't anyone hear Mady say they like doing things with Mommy better? Kate loves those kids and has their best interests at heart. You might not agree with her, but they are HER children, and she needs to care for them as she sees fit. They sure don't look unhappy or neglected!!

Other TLC families, large families, and other multiples

With the ending of the show and the article in People this week about the McCaugheys, we thought we'd give people a place to talk about the other families and the comparisons and contrasts with the Gosselins. Normally off topic subjects such as the Roloffs and the marriage problems TLC is showing are welcome in this post.

We decided to start another blog to allow discussion about the other TLC shows. It's open for use and we'll begin adding to it. The link is in the sidebar if you need it. The location is here.
