I wish that both Jon and Kate come to their senses and realize that family needs to come FIRST and that their children should be their #1 priority. I wish Cara and Mady much success in the second half of their 3rd grade year. I hope they have the chance to pursue whatever makes them truly happy! I hope the little kids are still young enough to forget all the negativity that surrounded them, and will continue to learn and grow in kindergarden!

I wish that the parental units will realize that they need to give up the notion of a public lifestyle, accept the ramifications/responsibilities of their actions, get some therapy for themselves, individually and as co-parents, and for their children, individually and as a family unit. I wish that they will at least try to get normal jobs like everyone else, ratchet down their lifestyle, embrace those whom they have driven away who would still love to help and be a part of their lives, and find some happiness. They are all miserable and it shows and nobody should live like that - especially with the resources they have (and have gone through). Going back to church and reconnecting with their church family will help immensely with that. I know it helps me, and the kids would benefit from being with children their own age in church programs as well - and they would love it as kids in those programs tend to do. You're never too young to have a community, and a church group community is a great place to start, for all of them. I wish them peace.

For the children, I wish anonymity, true friends, a chance to reconnect with their extended families, and parents who realize that they should be the primary focus of life. I wish them therapy to understand and deal with what has been done to them. I wish them success in school and in life.

For Khate - the realization that she, and she alone, is responsible for the destruction of her family, the wisdom to admit it, and the courage to seek the help she so desperately needs.

For Jon I wish strength of mind and character to do what is right by his children, loving family who talk some sense into him and give him the support he needs to make positive changes in his life, self-realization through therapy, and a lifetime of love and happiness with his children.

Long term psychological counselling all around.

Both parents get REAL jobs (permanently out of the spotlight and OFF tv).

Peace in the hearts of the 8 kids.

Happy New Year...I wish the Gosselins would just go away and I'd like to see TLC exposed for all the illegal activities they have their dirty hands in.

fidosmommy said...

I wish for a year of no tabloid coverage, no TV shows, no personal appearances, no magazine cover shoots, no late night parodies, no 911 calls, no guest hosting anything for the 10 Gosselins.

In other words, I hope they just go about their daily lives as if nobody had ever heard of them.

Buh-bye.

This also rings true for TLC...

Otherwise known heretofore as "The Litter Channel."

my wish is that KATE WILL NO LONGER BE ON THE VIEW. eww. seeing her on the view yesterday made my experience at the dentist yesterday so much worse [the view was on their display television at the office].

If Only Wishes Could Come True said...

This one is easy. I'd like for all ten Gosselins to disappear from my radar. I would like for them to repair their lives in private, as a family, which is a lot of hard work because there are years of damage behind them. I hope 2010 is the start of healing for eight precious little souls. I hope 2010 is the year Jon and Kate restructure their lives, grow up and put their kids first (in other words, WALK THE TALK).

Hard to Keep Loving Jon said...

I support what readerlady said..
and I hope I'm only one of many who seconds her loving wishes.

Damage Control said...

I'd like for Jon to wise up and stay away from EVERYONE except his family and 'pre-fame' friends. He can trust no one and that is pretty frigging sad. May everyone who had a hand in helping destroy Jon's reputation have a year full bad karma in 2010.

For Kate-I'd love for her to be fully exposed for the deceitful, manipulative, conniving fraud that she is.

For The Learning Channel and all of its associates: a criminal investigation into the Gosselin fiasco, severely plunging & worthless stock, zero advertising dollars and most especially, a terminated Laurie Goldberg and Eileen O'Neill.

SafetyTrain said...

May Kate's store-bought boobs deflate and Jon's wandering penis be rendered inoperable.

kate go away said...

I totally agree with Damage Control, TLC, Kate and and all these lowlifes need to pay for what has happened to Jon. Grant it he made it easy for them to go after him but lordy bee lay off already. They are going after him like he is Osama Bid Laden or something, he is a lost soul with 8 kids so one of his family members need to get him off the streets of NY, get the cigarette out of his mouth and keep him under lock and key. Stay lowkey in 2010 and let the others self destruct because it will happen. I can not believe Kate has not stepped up and said OK enough is enough this still is the father of my kids you destroy him you destroy my kids. But you know she will never do this cause she & TLC is spear heading this pr destruction of Jon and she is loving every minute. So So sad that a woman would do that to her ex all because the love for money and fame. Kate it will come back to bite you in your surgical altered body and I pray the media will wake up and get out of this drunken stupor they seemed to be in when it comes to you and it you alive.

I wish for cooperation, communication and compassion between the parents of the Gosselin children

I wish for a film free New Year for the Gosselin children

Jane in California said...

Happy New Year to all of the readers and posters on this blog, and especially to the moderators who make it all possible!

My New Year's wishes for the Gosselins:

1. For the children - a continued end to filming, despite TLC's best evil efforts to continue their exploitation. I also wish them to have less time with Kate, more time with Jon, and that they feel loved, nurtured and safe wherever they are.

2. For Jon - that he continues to refuse TLC's demands that they own his children and can film them willy nilly. That he stops making incredibly foolish choices. That he grows up, finally gets over the "loss" of his footloose 20's (enough already with that bull shite Jon), and once the divorce is final, that he meets and settles down with a nice average every day woman. That he grows to shun the limelight. That he gets a job, and continues to care for and love his children.

3. For Kate, I wish she would realize that she's used up her 15 minutes of fame, and that any further attempts to exploit her children for money and goodies won't work because the gig is up. It would be too much to hope that she'd actually realize and admit that she's been terribly wrong numerous times.

4. For TLC, a continued slide in ratings and to be the butt of many jokes within the industry. For the execs who kept trying to milk the Gosselins long past their due date, may they be shown the door and find it hard to get another job in the business. IN other words, their just desserts.

5. For the enablers, the Oprah Winfrey's, the Today Show, The View, Kathy Griffin, et al. - that we never forget when they showed us their true colors. They don't deserve our respect, nor our viewership. In their own way, they are just as bad as TLC, as they eagerly piled onto the exploitation bus. Shame on each and every one of them. (Sadly, even my favorite, Ellen Degeneres, had Kate on her show once. In her defense, she didn't seem to help promote the "poor little me" baloney and did have one of the funniest moments when she said, "I don't know what you're talking about." It left Kate momentarily speechless. Still, it was a low moment for that show.)

6. To any new families considering a reality show - a realization that it would be a terrible mistake. Don't do it!

Minka's tail said...

I have to disagree with many statements, respectfully, of course. I hate Kate, too, but I wish her success in 2010. Here's why.

Kate will not willingly give up the spotlight. If her fame dwindles, she will make life a living hell to anyone around her. That will not be Jon--frankly, I doubt he'll get through the year alive and unincarcerated, at the rate he's going--but the kids. She will feel no guilt yelling at and beating her children with spoons--it's all excusable (in her mind) because she's stressed from her loss of money and fame. So if we want the kids to be happy, and not be convenient pincushions for a bitter woman, this is my wish:

I wish that TLC starts a whole new station for her. I hope they give her seven new shows, one for every day of the week: Kate Rates the Spas, Kate Solves Your Problems, Eat Organically with Kate, Workout with Kate, Judge Katie, Kate on a Date, and Pray With Kate the Christian.

I hope these shows do well, but not well enough that she gets magazines covers or guest host gigs. Just enough to pay her bills and stroke her huge ego. I hope she's happy in her way, and I hope the Sheeple remember to take care of their families and go to their jobs, and can turn oft the tv once in a while. I hope she's so pleased with her new fame that she doesn't try to put her kids back on the air (except maybe on very rare occasions). I hope she comes home in a good mood and has family game night.

And I hope my cable company does not carry this new channel TKC, the Kate Channel, so I never have to see her again!

Hippie Chick said...

I hope that Kate stops being so selfish and self-involved and takes a long, hard look at the damage that has been done to the kids. She needs to get them some therapy, some schooling and some social interactions, so maybe they can grow up normal and happy.
Kate also needs to put a stop to destroying Jon, he IS the father of her kids, for crying out loud! She needs to open her eyes.
For Jon, I hope he surrounds himself with family and friends he can trust and gets some rights back to his children, and gets them out of Kate's hands.
Oh, and Kate needs parenting classes. A lot of them. And less "work" on herself would be nice too. Wake up Kate! You are NOT an A-lister. Stop thinking you are. So, less obliviousness too. I could go on and on...

Melissa said...

Well, I won't lie, my naughty wishes would be for J&K to be abducted by aliens and not heard from again.

I wish that Cary and Mady would not have to know all that they know about their parents and their lives - they're too young. I wish they would get some of their innocence back.

I wish that the 'tups would get to enjoy their childhood, whatever is left of it. No worries about getting dirty, making Mommy angry, performing for the camera, not eating organic.
Let them get grass stains on their knees, purple lips from popsicles, and the ability to run and yell in their own yard without worrying about being seen or annoying their mother.

Feeling Sorry for the 8 Kids said...

I wish Jon Gosselin would stop making a public fool of himself, such as this latest TMZ headline, which has him hooked up with Danielle Staub from "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" reality show.

http://www.tmz.com/2009/12/30/jon-gosselin-danielle-staub-real-housewives-of-new-jersey-video/

Seriously, why can't he just keep a low profile for a while?

uneasy said...

I hope Kate finds some significant other to run away with, and the level of fame she would be happy with. As long as she doesn't involve her kids, whatever it takes to keep her happy sounds good. To the point where she would let Jody and Kevin back into her life, mostly to care for the kids.

I hope that Jon keeps out the media spotlight, that he gets therapy and surrounds himself with healthy wholesome friends and family members. I hope he gets to spend regular quality time with all his kids.

For the kids, I hope for kind and nurturing adults in their lives (obviously not their mother) to give them a feeling of security and peace, so that they can all grow up healed and whole. And out of the public eye.

Irene said...

I wish that Kate would change her priority of "Fame is my life & my life is about Fame"

I wish Jon would wake up and smell the 8 children that need a responsible father.

I wish for the 8 Gosselin children to have a film free 2010 & beyond.

Barbara in VA said...

I echo Reader Lady's post exactly. She put it better than I could. Thank you, RL.

Also I hope the extended Gosselin and Krieder family will make much more of an effort to be involved with the children and not let Kate be the bulldozer that nobody wants to tangle with. Those kids are your flesh and blood, grandparents, aunts and uncles, and they need to know you.

my9cats said...

I would like Kate to keep her mouth zipped.
I would like Jon to keep his
pants zipped.

dirtydisher said...

Happy New Year, GWoPers.

fidosmommy said...

Yes, Happy New Year to all.

I want to take this time to give a special nod of appreciation to our Moderators. You have provided us with a valuable tool here, one that has hopefully been taken seriously in the real world out there.

God bless each poster who has tried to validate the argument that children should not be exploited in order to support the family, that children deserve a real childhood, and they deserve a family (including extended family)
to nurture them, take care of their needs (physical, mental, emotional and spiritual) - not the other way around.

2010 - hopefully the year where things will begin to turn around for Mady, Cara, Joel, Leah, Aaden,
Alexis, Collin and Hannah.

Can't See Sheep said...

Happy New Years All! Have a fun & safe night!

rural mom said...

I wish Kate would get voted off the planet.

Ohio Buckeye said...

Be safe tonight, GWoPers!

Happy New Year to all! In 2009, I have enjoyed reading your comments herein.

May the new year bring us health, peace, and 'reality' free (especially the likes of the Gosselins) tv programming!

Kannie said...

I wish for a Gosselin-free year.

No interviews, no pictures, no media coverage.

We have suffered long enough.

Rose said...

Happy New Year to all of you, as well! I'm so glad that this site continues to remain up for us to read and write comments - thank you, moderators!

Well, I could say that I wish Jon and Kate will come to their senses in 2010 and change their ways (for the kids' sake, of course), but that's asking a lot. I doubt that the two of them are going to shape up just like that, so instead, my hope is that their family, neighbors, the people in their lives, AND all of us who have watched them self-destruct in front of the cameras all these years will play a part in helping those two people turn things around for their 8 innocent children.

I hope that Kate's new show, which is apparently being developed and prepared for every wrong reason in the book, will not be successful. And I'll tell you why. Kate needs to finally realize that she did not become famous in the public eye because of her own hard work, integrity, or even her own personal devotion to the craft. It happened because she had eight kids over the span of two pregnancies. Those kids were adorable, their family seemed relatable at the beginning, so TLC and the audience ate it all right up.

Kate doesn't seem to understand that her life, her relationship with her ex-husband, and the well-being of her family are a complete train wreck right now, and that deserves no place in the media, especially when young children are involved. What upsets me is that nobody--least of all TLC--has bothered to sit her down and tell her that. They want the money as much as she does, period.

So, bottom line, I hope Kate's new shows fails, so that 1) she will recognize that remaining in Hollywood for the long term takes more than pure chance and luck, and 2) no matter what she says about how the show and the notoriety has not been at all harmful to her kids, it is completely unnatural or unacceptable for children to work and earn the money for their parents. The new show may not involve the kids, but see, that's the whole reason Kate is here in the first place - she got famous because of her kids. It is because of them that she has this lucrative lifestyle, and yet it is not their job to do that. It is not their job to trade in their childhoods for a couple extra dollars, no matter what reason Kate gives for it.

As the New Year arrives, I hope that more and more viewers will send the message to TLC by not tuning in and feeding more easy money to Kate. If she can't figure it out herself, then I hope there are others who will get through to her and show her that there are no shortcuts in life, and if she tries to take a shortcut, it will come at a tremendous price - her relationship with her children as they grow up. Kate must realize that people all over the world have big families, and she needs to get a real job like everyone else. It may not be what's most convenient for her, but it's what's best for her kids. Bottom line.

Button Button said...

My wish for the Gosselins is the same that I wish for all man kind. Joy, good health, love, security, beautiful weather, happy family gatherings, etc...

I hope we all get even part of the good things in life. I sure hope the Gosselin kids are doing well. Poor little things. What a confusing, sad, frightening time for them. Bless their little hearts. Shame on their parents.

Ava&Alex'sMom said...

My hope is peace and prosperity for Kate and the kids. :)

Kittycat said...

I wish they would move back to their E-Town house and live happily ever after.

Everybody needs a Fairytale wish, right ?

The Big Wooden Spoon said...

Happy New Year!

I wish Kate Gosselin great success at something, as long as it keeps her away from home until the kids are old enough to change their names and move out. I wish the children safety and happiness. I wish for Jon the support he needs to grow up.

Zayna said...

Happy New Year All!

My only wish regarding the Gosselins is that the kids finally get legal representation and protection of their interests.

I'm Done - Last Post - Farewell said...

I wish that Khate would just... disappear.... be gone... run away to a private island all by herself... leave the planet via the alien spaceship... anything to get her away from those poor little kids.

She is such a demented, destructive personality that I, too, fear that she takes out her frustrations and anger on the kids. We have seen it filmed and in pictures. No denying it.

I figure that The Loser Channel is stringing her along until her contract is up then will toss her out as too controversial and not marketable enough without her litter. That's when the chit will hit the fan.

And so, as I toddle off into the sunset, hopefully never to hear, read about or see Miss Khatie Irene Kreider ever again, I'll take a moment to thank the moderators for all their work in keeping this site up.

I truly believe that this blog has accomplished the fall of the queen bitch. It has stirred the public anger, and just like the public response to the OJ book "If I did it" resulted in its not being published, public opinion has worked to help save those precious little children from continued exploitation.

If only extended family, school officials and mental health workers can work some magic on the kids to reduce their bad behaviors (modeled on their crazy mother's behaviors) and give them some peace, then I think this blog will have served it's purpose.

I apologize if I'm rambling here, but I've made a very momentous decision - as a New Year's resolution, I am swearing off anything tabloid, anything chat room, anything ridiculous like Khate's pathetic life...

So long. It's been swell. I've enjoyed this blog tremendously and give high praise for what it's accomplished. I'm sure the "celebrity-in-her-own-mind" world according to Khate is coming to an end and I've got better things to do than follow her crash and burn. Tempting as it may be - LOL!

Moderators and posters, many thanks. Keep up the good work although I hope soon there will be nothing to cover. Wouldn't that be nice?

Amy2 said...

For the Gosslein children I wish for them that this is the year that Pennsylvania Children Services invetigation is completed and the findings are released to the public. That the finds reveal what we all suspect that the children are indeed working and should be compensated financially and with legal guardians.

For the parents I wish that they learn that being a parent means Children First. The childlrens' needs and wants come first, then the parents' wants.

IBM62 said...

I've always kind of wished that Aunt Jodi and Uncle Kevin could adopt the Gosselin kids, but I know that's pretty impossible as they already have a pretty large brood themselves. So, I guess my wish is that the twins and tups get to spend time with Jodi, Kevin and their other loved ones.

Lucy said...

Happy New Year to all and to our terrific moderators who have worked so hard and intelligently in efforts to seek the truth and ultimately help the Gosselin children. Hope rises 2010 will bring only happiness and privacy for those 8 kids.

Chronicworld said...

My wish is for the children to find love, guidance, safety, happiness, obscurity, friendship, laughter, full tummies, mismatching outfits, dirty hands, lots of snuggles and hugs, especially when they're sick.
I wish that they are never physically or emotionally injured again.
I wish they could live with Aunt Jodi and Uncle Kevin.
I wish they could all get therapy. They'll need it.
I wish this will be the last mention ever in the history of the world of Hannah's unnawears.
I wish them a lifetime of Normal!

mommadiane5 said...

Oh, I like the PA child services idea, Amy2. I wish for them to finish what they started and fine TLC thousands of dollars for each time they filmed the G8 without work permits. I hope the kids will remain taping free.

Jon, I hope you finish growing up. Surround yourself with old friends, not new ones. Get a real job and bring joy into your kids lives.

Kate, I hope you have an epiphany. Whatever can bring that on....a head injury? maybe. Maybe, a coma, Kate wakes up and realizes what is truly important and that is not money. I hope that Kate has a life changing epiphany because I have never known anyone who needs it as much as she does.

A Happy New Year to the Mods and posters.
It has been a difficult Christmas for us, sickness and death in the family.
I come in here hoping something will raise my spirits, there is always someone here with a wicked sense of humour.
I wish nothing but happiness to the eight Gosselin children and a camera free future.

Brummy, Like Posh, I am saddened to hear about your losses and difficult holiday season. And like Posh, I will attempt to make myself 100% more humorous in 2010. Which should make me 30% as funny GoPosh Go. Or you, my dear!

Chronicworld said...

My heart goes out to you, Brummygirl. I'm so sorry for your loss.
I promise to be just as funny as possible; laughter and time are the best medicine.
God bless you and your family.
