Kate Too Controversial?

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

Finally, No Show for Khate said...

If you check www.dlisted.com, you will find this story AND the most hilariously-ish realisticalish photo of Khate in a balloon.

The expression on her face is absolutely "Khate" - the site couldn't have chosen a BETTER picture to depict her "personality"...

I laughed until I cried!

Absolutely perfectish!

And, I'm so glad someone with sense decided to kick her off. In spite of the fact that I hate her crap personality, it's just plain obvious she has no talent and is NOT ready for a TV job.

Feeling Sorry for the 8 Kids said...

The people behind that show probably took a few looks at the many "Jon & Kate Plus 8" episodes where she yelled at Jon, yelled at her kids, told Jon she couldn't stand his breathing, etc. along with her recent appearance on Jay Leno's show and decided to tell her "See ya!"

Elvira said...

Finally someone in the industry with a brain! She was supposed to be very difficult on set according to an observer there that day. Not smart Katie to get ideas beyond yourself.

Ohio Buckeye said...

What K. Gosselin offers in controversy, she balances with an equal level of UNtalent.

The woman has absolutely zero charisma. She is more polarizing that Sarah Palin, and that's saying alot.

Those in charge of the Paula Deen brand are wise to distance themselves from the lethally venomous Kate Gosselin.


TLC continues to blunder on down their trash-strewn viewing highway. One can only wonder at the TLC executive board that continues to finance the likes of the Gosselins. This kind of stupidity brings its own special reward: certain ratings death.

And the proposed new format reportedly includes K. Gosselin serving others food? K. Gosselin SERVING anyone but HERSELF??!! Yeah, that's 'reality', sure, you bet. "Reality" TLC-style. Spare me.

Lisa said...

I hate that this is the reason being given for Kate not getting the job. Just another chance for her to play the victim card and blame Jon. It's all his fault that she is being robbed of her big chance to live her dream. It's his fault that she won't be able to provide for the kids, because after all, this is all about the kids. First he pulled them off tv and took away their livlihood, and now he's the reason she's not getting this job. He caused all the controversy....I can just hear her now. It won't be the fact that she stinks at the job. Poor Kate (insert eye roll) As much as I'm glad she isn't getting the hosting gig, it's just hard to be too excited because of the reason that's been given. I just feel like Jon will always be the scapegoat for everything that goes wrong in her life. In her mind, she is perfect. I was just hoping to see her knocked down a peg or two....is that evil of me??

mngddess said...

Ah, a little Christmas gift for all of us. Now if only TLC will see the light and realize that any more of an investment in that witch will only result in an eventual boycott of TLC.

I also have to say that I watched an episode of Raising Sextuplets with the Masche mom and kids. What an astonishing contrast to that monster woman on TLC. The Masche mom (sorry, don't remember her name) played with her kids, fed them a decent amount of food, wsa honest about how hard it was to keep going 24/7. Oh, and she also WORKS. A JOB. KHate should be ashamed.

gherkin said...

I am so thrilled that the people behind the talk show came to their senses and realized that Kate has no talent. She sounds ignorant and is a total egomaniac. Why would Paula Deen want to be tied to her?? And as the article states, Paula was probably afraid that Kate would try to steal the spotlight. Nevermind the backstage diva behavior.

Kate can continue with her lame "to be announced" TLC show and it will tank too. No one is interested.

I almost wonder if she will get so desperate for fame and Jon will get desperate for money that they will stage a fake reconciliation. That would be a whole new series! The kids could be back on and show Jon and Kate going on dates, etc.

Let's just wait and see. I wouldn't put anything past that pair. Together or apart.

Peas and Carrots said...

Kate is too controversial and now John was considered the most 'Toxic Bachelor' on Showbiz tonight the other night.

Seems to me they are both biohazards.......

Texas two step said...

Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha!! Thank you Ms Paula for speaking up and ensuring that this crazy woman does not pollute what you are doing.

kHate is one unstable woman with many many secrets that have yet to be unfolded and the clues are abound if you only look.

Her only friendship that she will speak about is with this woman, who is now making statements to the press. Take a look at this video and read between the lines. To me it only gives validity to the whole O'neill (TLC) theory out there. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NWfKgWn3FoI Thank you jibberjabberz for this... I had seen the photo's on Facebook months ago and was quite distrurbed by the stalker like stances that this woman takes not to mention that she was posting pics of the kids on that site as well. Hopefully we will no longer be seeing kHate much more in the future as it is a given that anything she does, regardless of TLC's backing, will be a hit with the general public.

P.S. Happpy 10mil hits GWOP ers and a special Howdy Do Thanks to You, lovely MODS!!! You Rock!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I wish I could believe that. I don't think it will happen. She is some sort of idol to so many women that I just don't see it. I hope you are right. I would love to be wrong.

For the Moment? said...

I am glad to hear that because I find Paula Deen entertaining and would want to watch her new show if it does come on. I also got an alert today, that she has made some kind of huge endorsement deal but did not get what it was. She didn't get where she is today by being dumb and not being to through somewhat as shallow as Kate.

Hambone said...

Kate? Too controversial?

Imagine that.

And she thought being the way she is, is a good thing that will get her places. Looky where it's getting her now.

I'm glad those execs used their brains and stood firm and said NO to the shrew. Finally. Just wish TLC would do the same and cut the cord.....have no idea why they insist on trying to make her something she's not.

Can't See Sheep said...

Finally, No Show for Khate said...

If you check www.dlisted.com, you will find this story AND the most hilariously-ish realisticalish photo of Khate in a balloon.
------------------------
YAY!!!!! Christmas miracles do happen!!! Someone has seen the light! That is such a lovely photo of kate, too perfect. I bet no one wants to be in that house with her right now. Hopefully all the nannies have the sense to get the kids out when she's behaving nuts, take them up to Jon's apartment over the garage or something, just get them away from their mother's fury.

It'd be nice if other's noticed those not willing to invest in her & follow suit.

Feeling Sorry for the 8 Kids said...

The people behind that show probably took a few looks at the many "Jon & Kate Plus 8" episodes where she yelled at Jon, yelled at her kids, told Jon she couldn't stand his breathing, etc.
-----------------------
Yeah, it wouldn't do well for kate to smack Paula or tell her she's breathing too loud. All though I would like to see Paula take her to the woodshed. kate Gosselin, all controversy, no talent. If she had an abundance of talent they might have considered it worth the risk, but she's got nothing, nada, zip. Having master's in conning, nagging & ungratefulness isn't going to get katie as far as she was hoping.

Pamela Jaye said...

I don't know how many viewers TLC had for J&K before the blow-up, but I had stopped watching when they started doing theme shows and trips, started watching again, actually cause it was a trainwreck waiting to happen - like how people turn their heads and slow down to see a car crash. I was happy when I heard they were breaking up (I didn't know Jon was going to be such an idiot. sigh. I just was happy for him to get out from under.)

But the biggest ratings came from the conflict. So this show idea might be a big hit (as long as we find a way to never actually see the kids). Depends on how much of America has realized how awful Kate really is.

1momski said...

Lisa,
Cheer up! Kate is controversial without Jon's help. They very fact that this woman goes on a morning talk show to announce that she is broke and then talks about wanting a diamond and pearl ring is controversial. The fact that she claims to be a devoted mother who flounces around the country with a body guard more than she stays home is controversial. The fact that she claims that what her children from a broken home really need is their camera crew back is controversial. Kate needs no help here!

SunnyGrace said...

I'm not surprised because Paula is the star of the show (if it ever sees light). I could never see Paula tolerating Katie Irene's sunny personality (not). I don't even know why it was even considered.

SunnyGrace

Lauren said...

I am SO glad that Kate won't be on Paula Deen's show. So many in the entertainment industry (The View) are way too polite to call Kate for her bad behavior.

Radar's article doesn't say who made the decision to axe Kate but I'm so glad that someone has stood up against TLC and Kate Gosselin's management.

Not Watching TLC said...

ROFLMAO - what a spin this story puts out about how TLC is standing by Khate. LOL! They will until the new show tanks and then even TLC will kick her to the curb.

fidosmommy said...

OK, so MomLogic has canned her because she is controversial. And TLC is committed to a show with Kate in 2010.

Does this mean that Kate's new show will be about her flinging plates of craft service foods on a table while she snarls at the customers to not make a mess?

Oh, let me clear my schedule for that! It's Must See TV at its finest! Kate Gosselin working with the general public. Now that will sell.

Good thinking, TLC. You've got a bona fide hit on your hands now.
More tuning in to watch odd and sad things. Whoopee.

Kathleen said...

A good show idea would be to dump Jon and Kate together on a deserted island and see who lasts longest before killing the other one. Find the kids either relatives or adoptive parents to care for them since it's apparent Joke and Hate are all for themselves.

Ravello said...

Thank God they saw the light, Kate is toxic, poison and has no talent, charisma or personality to do anything but berate her husband and boy children. This haughty woman is being brought down to size. Now I want the tabloids to ignore her.

Ohio Buckeye said...

@Finally, No Show for Kate: That photo captures the braying donkey that is Kate Gosselin. Now THERE is actual reality.

Laurie said...

Do you think part of the problem may have been the NE article stating that kHate was setting her sights on one of Paula's boys? Hmmmm.....whatever the reason I'm glad that karma is finally starting to catch up to her!

Just My Few Canadian Cents said...

Too controversial? That sounds like a sanitized, PR release. I wonder what the real reason/reasons behind canning her is?
It appears that the mainstream media is finally turning on Kate. With TMZ saying she has no talent following her Leno appearance, it appears that Kate's future on television is limited to TLC and Barbara Walters. But Barbara's endorsement may end soon as well. During a recent View, the guest was discussing the Gosselin divorce and predicted that a Kate-only show would tank as Kate is nothing without her eight (my words). But the guest said while she watched J&K+8, she wouldn't watch a show with just Kate as that would be boring. Joy agreed and said she wouldn't watch such a show either. That must have hurt Kate to hear.

kimmie said...

I wouldn't get so excited...I read that the show with Paula Deen will be extremely difficult to pass the test of production.

I also read that the reason was b/c PD didn't want Kate to upstage her b/c Kate was so widely known.

stupidisasstupiddoes said...

Too controversial? That sounds like a sanitized, PR release.

Most definitely! Did the people behind the Paula Deen 'talk show' actually believe that, aside from the controversy , Kate Gosselin was of the ability or experience to bring any thing of specific relevance to the table? Maybe parading your children on the front lawn for weeks on end exposing them to the paparrazi during a highly publicized divorce wasnt the smartest MOM thing to do.

Kelly said...

Okay, I'll be realistic and say that although I'm not surprised that the exec's made the right decision, I'm surprised that anyone ever gave her the second look to even cast her in anything other than a circus freak.

Look.....Let's all be real. There are things that all of us can do in life that are pretty good and deserve credit for. I myself can cook a pretty damned good dish of lasagna but it doesn't mean I can own a restaurant. Some of us can play one or two songs on the piano by ear but it doesn't mean we are ready for Carnegie Hall.

Kate's niche was being the clown car uterus for invitro, she gave birth to eight kids and ....and.....and......and....
Where's the talent???????
Almost any woman can do that.

She has no talent, no stage presence, no personality, always has this look on her face with her "Jack Nicholson eyebrows" like someone just passed gas and she is just not likeable.

Who wants to come home from a day of hard work (Kate, ask me about hard work and I'll be glad to tell you about it) turn on the television and see Kate with her PHONEY smile and hear her witch cackle and glean nothing from the half hour of watching her, other than to feel like you just swallowed a pot full of bacon grease.

I'm sorry, I'm not trying to be mean but making a good bowl of tuna fish doesn't make you a chef. Driving through the snow storm doesn't make you a Nascar driver and being on a reality show with no script and exploiting your children doesn't make you a talk show host any more than going to church makes you a christian or going to McDonalds makes you a hamburger.

Good ridance Kate and Jon

FUNNYFUNNY! said...

YES! HAHA! This story made me happy! LOL. For one Kate hasn't done anything to deserve all she has. She is a horrible person and God help those kids who were unfortunate enough to have her as a mother.

I for one don't get why people on here hope she's successful just so she can bring in big money. She is just like every other American. IF she can't pay the bills then DOWNSIZE, move into a smaller house and send your kids to public school. Live within your means!

Now we just wait for TLC to announce the same thing. Her show won't last 1 complete season. I won't watch one second of it.

fidosmommy said...

Seems to me like the fear of Kate upstaging Paula could be legitimate. No celebrity wants to share the spotlight more than necessary. Working with Rene would be less intimidating because Rene flies under the radar and only a segment of America knows who she is on any given day. Kate has been wearing radar-friendly gear for the past 2 years and is extremely polarizing.

I doubt Paula would have been excited about somebody like Kelly Ripa either - obviously better suited for a talk show format than Kate, but she would be seen by too many to be the star of the show.

Few celebs can stand the heat of having another "celeb" on board for more than a guest spot.

Mona said...

Mom Logic has lived up to its name.
It was logical to knock Kate Gosselin to the curb. She is toxic.

rural mom said...

Too controversial? No, more like Kate is too dumb, too illiterate, too stiff and too awkward to be on tv. She has no talent, no charisma and no ability to tell a story or engage the viewer. It is uncomfortable watching her on shows like the View and Leno, she just is not a performer.

GoPoshGo said...

Kate too controversial???? What, may I ask, with all of the bubble wrap TLC has enveloped Kate's image with, is at all controversial about Kate??? Unless I'm being exposed to a whole different set of tabloids, the controversial figure is Jon -- and even that's a stretch if the rumor of their "agreement" has any truth to it.

So I went to ROL and read the article. This quote stood out like Kate's boobs in a size-too-small babydoll dress:

"...high-level executives ... didn’t think she was ready for a full-time hosting job, even as part of a panel."

Ah, finally the truth comes out. Between Kate's "auditions" on The View and the pilot with Paula, it seems that the MomLogic folks can't deny that Kate is a boring, talentless, egocentric, know-nothing whose only area of expertise is ... Kate.

Perhaps TLC will take a break from exploiting dwarf chocolatiers, monkey-raising freaks, and women who mistook childbirth for the mother of all bowel movements, to realize that their golden girl's veneer has worn thin. From all I've seen in the media, Kate's legacy for 2009 is that she's a joke and a footnote in reality tv history. The accounts don't portray a star on the rise, but rather one who's pretty much self-combusted.




One TV source with knowledge of the situation told RadarOnline.com that high-level executives believed Kate was too controversial for the show and didn’t think she was ready for a full-time hosting job, even as part of a panel.

Mystical said...

Go Posh Go, LOLOLOL, I enjoyed your entire post as you exemplified the horrific makings/ruins of Kate Gosselin. And laughed at this part as you exposed TLC for the maniacs they have become, "Perhaps TLC will take a break from exploiting dwarf chocolatiers, monkey-raising freaks, and women who mistook childbirth for the mother of all bowel movements, to realize that their golden girl's veneer has worn thin."

BH said...

"the braying donkey" that Kate Gosselin is....LMAO at that. So true.

fidosmommy said...

I nominate GoPoshGo's last post as the best in category. Terrific!

How utterly hysterical. Thanks. I really needed that. I'll be snickering all night.

Mona said...

When they said Kate was controversial, I think they meant Kate was unpopular with their test audience. If the test audience was broadened to a couple million households, it would cause controverty among the execs at TLC about which week to pull her off the panel.

lukebandit said...

i looked at the picture of kate in the balloon and i am just stunned. what is she doing that for? what was going on? can you imagine those kids and jon having to put up with that for years? it looks like she has on a red apron and nothing else. she is holding a quarter? is that to tip the balloon captain or steve for holding her purse? lol

i pray the kids have a wonderful Christmas eve and day.

Pa Mom Knows said...

"One TV source with knowledge of the situation told RadarOnline.com that high-level executives believed Kate was too controversial for the show and didn’t think she was ready for a full-time hosting job, even as part of a panel."

Ah, but didn't Baba say that Kate has a tremendous career with her own television show? If execs feel that she couldn't even carry a job as a panelist, how would a show of her own be successful? Betcha this latest news won't be under discussion on The View, or old Babs will have to eat her words. Or would she lament the fact that television execs don't recognize talent (Kate) when they see it?

Kelly said...

The picture of Kate riding in the balloon was like the picture of Michael Dukakis riding in the tank.

This was a "jump the shark" moment for the two of them. The balloon show was all about Kate yet the premise of the show was supposed to be about the 8 kids who acted out, after time, hit each other, cried, screamed, acted like privledged monsters and had no manners. How is that "quality" television?

If we were subjected to one more show of the 8 Gosselins, 2 Greedlings and watching them ride a wagon filled with hay while they all yelled at each other....that's not entertainment. That's being a witness to abuse.

Brummygirl said...

GoPoshGo.....you go girl, that was funny!! :)
Now this news has made my day. This will not be the first kick in the rear for Miss Katie Can Do!!
There's no business like show business and in a blink you can be discarded like yesterday's bread.
Ahhh....does that mean we will not see her in pantomime on Broadway? Wait a minute, I heard the rear end of the donkey was available and she does have the laugh!!!
Ooooo, I know I should not be so mean especially at this time of year, but it is one glimmer of light in the dark tunnel of Kate Gosselin's so called stardom.
Watch the glitter ball gradually disintegrate.

Jane in California said...

GoPoshGo and Kelly - you both are cracking me up! Love your insights and couldn't agree more. GoPosh - especially the part about high level execs realizing Kate isn't ready (and never will be) to be even a part-time host. I can only hope that those idiots who were pushing Kate as perfect for the job -- got demoted and reamed by the higher ups for wasting their time.

Chronicworld said...

I think I can settle the whole "Why Kate Won't Be On Paula Deen's Show" issue.
One of the other co-hosts being considered is Lee Woodruff. College-educated, well-spoken, good mother, devoted wife of Bob Woodruff, for whom she sacrificed everything to help him in his rehabilitation battle after being severly brain-injured while reporting from Iraq. That Lee Woodruff.
Imagine it.
That trash fire Kate would look at Mrs. Woodruff and say, "I'm a nurse. I've heard of head injurishy stuff. Icky, icky stuff. Usually happens to boys. Do you eat organic? We do. We always eat organic."

"it is still on the schedule to be sold at the convention where TV shows are pitched"

When *is* NATPE, anyway?

smooth move, taking a screen shot of the page. I never think to do that, in the case of things that tend to change. you know how some webpages change when people find out more and then say "we never said that!" I always save the webpages. But I've never though to screenshot them. (I *would* need a bigger screen, though)
good idea.

CityGirl said...

Paula Deen would have to be the most powerful person on that panel, sooo, It had to have been her that booted kate. IF Paula, as sucessful as she is, demanded Kate to be part of that show, SHE WOULD BE! Maybe it was the fact that kate entered the studio, bodygaurd in tow, nose pointing north, and made an ass out of herself. I don't think paula felt she would be upstaged by her, I think she thought "I will kill myself if I have to endure Kate Gosselin everyday!" and perhaps paula felt that there wasn't any chemistry between the two or four. We know how Kate demands the spotlight, and I bet paula got to see that first hand. Between flirting with the camera crew, gushing over paula's son, cracking herself up, and just being down right annoying, Paula probably had enough very quickly. Kate is NOT going to stay home with those kids, even if she has to volunteer her time as an excuse to have someone else do it!!!!- JMO

CityGirl said...

Oh, I just wanted to say this. Forever really, because this bothered me to no end.. In the episodes where Kate (Jon) was potty training the kids, I never once saw or heard Kate say "now go wash your hands" or "I gotta go wash my hands" and many times in the old house she would call them for dinner, from outside or somewhere in the house and they would run directly to the table. Without washing their hands. I have to admit that I have a healthy amount of OCD, not enough to bother anyone except myself, but number one on my list is WASHING HANDS before eating, touching anything I do not own, visiting a store, anything. I don't know the type of OCD Kate claims she has, I think it could be called Obsessive- Controlling- and Domineering! But she DOES NOT have the kind that involves cleanliness! I had watched too many episodes to know this fact.

Kris said...

TLC Hanging on to Kate = TLC wanting to keep her from joining Jons counter suit against them.

I truly believe this is the real reason that TLC is trying to keep Kate happy by stringing her along with hopes of her own show. They are worried about what would happen if she joined Jon in the countersuit.

CityGirl said...

Also, I was just thinking, Oprah is so much more powerful than TLC. Oprah could not even get her BFF Gayle King's show off the ground. I think it aired for a few weeks?
So if someone being backed by Oprah failed I am sure Kate will fail. It doesn't matter who is helping her or who she knows, if she is not capable then she will fail. I hope this has humbled her a little(not) to be a little more gracious and less holier than thou, for what she does have. No one can hide their true self very long and I believe Kate has ruined any chance she has of being taken seriously. I think most people see right through her, even her "backers" they continue to stay because they think she will bring in the audiences. --Merry Christmas everybody! Congrats on the 10 million hits.

Jill said...

If this story is true it just further shows what a good businesswoman Paula Deen really is. She is a self-made success story, working her butt off as a single mom to support her boys - she never even went to college, much less culinary or business school - and after struggling with the death of her parents, her husband leaving her and her severe agoraphobia she STILL has managed to become one of the most recognized and celebrated cooks and authors in the world. Good for her for protecting HER brand! Putting aside my dislike/distrust for Kate Gosselin as well as the negative image she carries in the media, the woman simply is just a terrible tv personality... as many have said, she has no charisma. She tries too hard to be cute, funny, ironic, and it always comes across as annoying, irritating and sad. Maybe if she hadn't of played the "woe is me" card so long, done all of the talk shows and media blitz that has followed the destruction of her marriage - maybe if she would have gone off the radar for a while - more people could have at least tolerated her in a new series. I know of plenty of moms who used to love her and now can't stand the sight of her - she's more overexposed than Britney Spears and Paris Hilton combined! And the worst part is that while she's toiling away (on her broomstick) and continuing to try to stay in the spotlight, her income can only be dwindling and her kids still need to be supported. And with the injunction filed against Jon it's not like he's going to make a dime for the time being as his only sole source of income was opening his blowhole to the tabloids and goofy public appearances. I'll be interested to see if this new TLC show of hers gets picked up either - although they seem to be about as narcissistic as she is when it comes to promoting her for the $$$.

ChurchMouse said...

The Real Reason Why Kate won't be on Paula Dean's Show:

(Phone rings)
Paula: Hi, y'all. Is Mister Emeril in?
Emeril: BAM! I'm here, ma'am, what can I do for you?
Paula: Emeril, I'm gonna be doin' my own cookin' show!
Emeril: BAM! That's fantastic!
Paula: Got any tips that I can use? I'll be working with Kate Gosselin...
Emeril:BAM!
Paula: 'Scuse Me?
Emeril: BAM! BAM! BAM! That's what that woman did to me. Hit me with a plastic spatula.
Paula: Oh, dear.
Emeril: I'd suggest not having any plastic spatulas on the set, but she's also got penchant for wooden spoons.
Paula: Oh, my. I may have to rethink this. Well, thanks for the advice, hon.
Emeril: My pleasure. Just watch your back. BAM!

pinkdiamond611 said...

Merry Christmas Khatie Irene. Santa just put some much deserved coal in your stocking. btw, didn't bawa walters state that Paula Dean's cooking was unhealthy?? rofl. So there you have it, a big ole F. U. to the senile one. Paula's star is still rising, and bawas and khates are both fading fast.

maggy said...

My personal opinion is that Kate didn't get cut because she was to controversial - I think they just said that to get buzz on the show.

I think that Kate got cut because she's like the black hole of suck on television. I actually watched the Leno show and she just sucked all the energy out of the show. It was like dead air time. Kate just can't hold a talk show or any type of show where she has to speak 'extemporaneously'.

-------------------------------
ITA!! TLC is watching out for themselves in hanging onto Kate. Sooner or later she will prove how
little talent she has.

--------------------------------
re: An Opra replacement--

After seeing the Opra and Sarah Palin interview--I wouldn't be too surprised to see Sarah replace Opra.

Kate doesn't have enough knowledge of anything to even know how to conduct an interview.

Francine said...

Maybe they say that she doen't have that show because she is a controversy woman because they don't want to tell her that she was not good for that show

barbee said...

Kate can OWN her being too controversial, her nasty actions and comments to Jon, the kids, the crews, the family, the friends, the strangers (did I miss anyone?) rank waaaaaaay higher than Jon's indiscretions after she told him they were through, left him for weeks on end with the kids while she flitted around with Steve. By the time he was caught acting in an inappropriate way, they were over (well, except for the faking a happy, loving marrige for the cameras so Kate could continue to be in HER spotlight). Kate also contributed to the controversy by being unable to fulfill a role as host, co-host, panel member, whatever. She failed on The View, she failed on Jay Leno last Friday and she failed on her own show (especially in the months that SHE was the main focus). AND, she failed as a wife, mother, and person in general. Hopefully this downward spiral will continue until Kate is 'gone, all gone' (to paraphrase her 'mine, all mine').

Ohio Buckeye said...

@GoPoshGo: Posh, you ROCK! Thanks for another of your insightful comments. Amen on all counts and well said!!!!

MaryB said...

Seems like TLC is stringing Kate along with a new show all her very own. In reality they are hoping to break Jon and make him bleed so he will BEG them to film his family once again.
When the contract runs out in May, if Jon holds firm, they will drop Kate like a lead horse laughing balloon.

konGOaway said...

Paula Deen adores her two sons and is probably a wonderful grandma to little Jack. I wouldn't believe for one minute that she would approve of her son getting involved with Kate and the misbehaved eight. Can you just see them tearing through Paula's lovely home? Manners at the table, I don't think so because Kate has never taken the time to teach her children. The appeal of Bobby Deen is the fact that he is cute, has connections to a TV show and has a mother who is building an empire. She went after Jon because she liked his looks but I am sure that the fact that his father was successful and respected in the community played a part. Kate has an over inflated ego, and thinks she is a star and she now feels she can attract someone like Bobby Deen. Run Bobby RUN!!! What a joke she is. And thank goodness Jon will start off the new year without all the excess BAGS he had holding him back. No I didn't mean baggage!!!!!

dustilies said...

Y'all are cracking me up--and I need it--so much cooking and cleaning and sneaky wrapping today.

Thanks especially to GoPoshGo, Chronicworld, and Churchmouse

Merry Christmas to all my esteemed friends here!

HI 50 said...

Ho, ho, ho!! Finally the domino effect is happening to Katan! She joined forces with TLC to demonize and destroy Jon now she's reaping her rewards. Fired off of MomLogic. Ho, ho, ho!

I saw the Leno show on YouTube, even with the delay she was booorrrring! TLC will keep her close so she will NOT spill the beans on the network and/or join forces with Jon in his lawsuit.

She will survive. She has 11 bank accounts & what ever child support she can squeeze out of Jon. Wonder how that will happen b/c TLC has an injunction preventing Jon from working in the entertainment business.

Read posts on ROL. A poster claims her husband worked on the set of MomLogic. The production crew were frustrated b/c of numerous takes...because Kate couldn't get it together & too many um, um, uh, uh. Maybe that's how they lost the audience. A Kate-lover boo hooed and theatened to turn the poster's husband in. Isn't that hilarious!?!

K-lovers are going through severe withdrawals b/c there aren't too many sites they can post about their beloved Kate. Ho, ho, ho!

If anyone NOT supporting Kate posts on ROL, the hyenas go into their pack attack, bully mode. They start name-calling, verbal intimidation and childish antics by deleting the offender's post. Ho, ho, ho!!

Enough already, Kate needs to disappear into oblivion. Stay away from the media and stay home with her kids (like she said she would). Ho, ho, ho!

Saw the picture of the braying donkey in the balloon, had a GREAT morning laugh b/c she looked like a jackass. Ho, ho, ho!

Happy Holidays!!

MODS-

Have searched myself but need some assistance.
Remember controversy of Kate smacking "leah?" in drive way this summer.... shortly thereafter another picture surfaced of one of her "help" smacking one of the children. Have tried to source this picture, and believe it is this Jaime Ayers Cole person who smacked the kid. JibberJabberz has a few vids on email of ole khate smacking the kids up. If you are able to reach out to other GWOPer's and find that footage/pictures of whomever was smacking the kids would appreciate a post of the link. I think people would be interested in seeing the multiple pics/vids of how the kids are smacked while under kHate's custody.
Thanks

------------------------------

Actually I have to hand it to TLC, they've been very successful in their whole divide & conquer campaign with the Gosselins. They've got kate to support their every move along the way, with the show, with Jon with everything. She trumpets her support loud & clear & it's very well documented for all to see. That is one of the things they have gained by supporting her pity me fest.

When she does fall out with them & we know its a "when", not an "if", she won't have many legs to stand on should she ever decide to sue them. She's a vengeful girl, I figure she'll want to. One by one, TLC has removed each arguement she can effectively make, all they'd have to do for any judge is play back the myriad of interviews she's been on & it will discount most arguments. Sure there are a few other arguments she might be able to make, but the obvious & easiest ones are gone, IMO.

On a lighter & brighter note. Happy holidays, Merry Christmas. Bless every last one of you & your families.

Kelly, I enjoyed your post, especially the "feeling like you've just drunk a potful of bacon grease" after watching Katan. A very colorful and accurate description!

Maggie, another good point, that the powers that be plant all kinds of media stories and snag as many 'appearances' (i.e., Leno's 10 @ 10) simply to keep Katie Irene in the viewers' consciousness in preparation for whatever new venue they have in mind. It's all business. Nothing is what it seems - just more hype to keep their hoped-for cash cow in their pasture of $green$.

"Reality"? Anything but.

"I understand the humor in it but it is also so very sad for them. Not to mention that level of fanaticism is frightening and potentially dangerous (think Selena, John Lennon)."

I've been saying this for a long, long time. She doesn't need the bodyguard to protect her from those who want nothing to do with her...those who believe she's evil incarnate. It's the "fans" that stalk her. It's the fans, the fanatics she needs to fear. It's happened over and over again, and they indeed may ultimately prove very dangerous.
I read some of the comments on ROL. Why is it that they (and the sheeple) are the ones who cannot construct one simple grammatically correct sentence? From where do these people come?

Kate has no talent said...

Momlogic got rid off Kate not because she is too controversial, it's because she has no talent. They are just being polite.

They know the audience's interest about Kate's controversy will die down eventually. It won't last for weeks. Only talent can keep the audience around. Kate doesn't have any talent. It's a pain in the ass to film zombie Kate. The only talent Kate has is to yell at her husband and children, if you can call that a talent.

Thanks Boomer Sooner- yep that was the one I was looking for. To me it appears it could be this friend of hers, Jamie Queen of the Sheeple.

With all the clips out there that show kHate's physical agressions to the kids and her hired help playing monkey see monkey do with regards to this, wondering why it hasn't been forced more to the media forefront, the potential physical harm/abuse these kids are subject to whilst under kHate's care.

Who know's, maybe TLC's new show will be geared towards how to parent your children by using manhandling and screaming tactics. Also understand kHate was filming at a restaurant.....and that her boyfriend wouldn't allow anyone to film/take picures when they were at this restaurannt. Wondering
if she may not be testing a new receipe for adults.... Red AND white grapes with TWO kinds of cheese for adults.... now THAT would be controversial.... imagine the uproar in the trash mags at that!

Seriuosly though, regarding her hair, clothes, shoes and ta ta's, who cares. There is further documentation that NEEDS TO BE FOCUSED ON regarding the 'discipline' of the kids. It is already well spoken of about how she treated Jon. Why hasn't anyone focused on this in the media???

Katie711 said...

There is a GOD. Thank god that she has been bounced off the show. Someone else touched on this earlier. Kate has ZERO appeal to men and woman with half a brain cant stand her. So WHY even think you have something here. Except for a handful of wannabees over at ROL who think that Khatezilla walks on water. Zilla make a comment about going on DWTS. The first thing I thought was its called DANCING WITH THE STARS? YOUR NOT A STAR. You're some reality bitch who is known for bitchin at her husband and treating him like dog poop on her 5 inch hooker heels. And then Leno asked her what song she was listening to on her IPOD and it was GaGa's Paparazzi. WOW can you be more narcissistic? That coming from a broad who told her kids to call them "P" people. She is a mess. TLC MUST be stopped. They are ruining EVERYONE who goes on their network. Look at Jon and Kate obviously. And now the boys from OCC ( Orange County Choppers) are in a heated law suit and the sons are not speaking to the father. How sad is that? But heck TLC made their Millions so they don't give a sh@@. And now The Roloff's are having serious trouble's too. When is it going to be Enough for this network? When they RUIN everyone? Khate needs to realize she is NOT a star and go back to nursing and take care of her kids and STOP trying to be on tv. The more she try's that she has to be away a lot. WHO is watching the kids? So much for the high road.

Katie711 said...

I loved the Article in the Boston Paper that said that Khate is SO boring on TV ( unless she is belittling Jon or any other man) and her timing is SO far off that people would fall asleep before she was able to get the punch line off. Personally Id like to see someone Punch her instead of waiting for her "punch line"

Momof2 said...

I believe a lot of the commenters on ROL are from BM's site. She quotes ROL often verbatim like it's the gospel. Plus whenever Kate does anything BM practically pees herself with glee.....I do believe it's the die hard fans who are jellus and are the biggest threat to Kate.

birdy said...

Kate's people (manager, agent, PR) and TLC are stupid. They keep trying to destroy Jon by spreading more rumors about how horrible he is. They want to make Jon look really bad so you would think the divorce is Jon's fault and Kate is wholesome without any fault. That's the dumbest thing ever.

The more they talk about Jon, the more the viewers get irritated. People are sick of someone making headline just because of their domestic problems. If Jon is that horrible, what does it say about Kate who married to him and controlled him for 10 years? No one would believe she is all innocent and wholesome. It makes you wonder if this is the case of "birds of the same feather flock together".

For the Moment? said...

They just don't get it that the
"brand" was Jon and Kate and although they are trying desperately to detach Kate from Jon and destroy him while building her up, more and more in the media buzz when they speak of the Gosselins it is Jon AND Kate and some of her parenting skills are finally being brought into question also.

It is very upsetting that Jon is being portrayed as a bad parent due to these rumors being fueled by powers that would destroy him, that being the mother of his children and her cohorts TLC, when those of us who have followed the show from the beginning know that it is not true. They naysayers are jumping on the bandwagon without checking the facts. I think Jon by the time Jon goes to court on this he will have a very good case against TLC if he gets a good corporate lawyer, that is, and dumps the criminal lawyer whose only claim to fame is unsuccessfully defending the Son of Sam decades ago and now Jon's divorce fiasco.

I have seen some terrible stories about Jon's parenting. Apparently, since he stopped partying, now they are going to work on his parenting, when they know themselves that he is at his worst the lesser of two wrongs and overall the only good thing those kids have going for them. The media treatment of Jon has become somewhat like that of Tiger Woods..beating a dead horse for just one more story, for their ratings with no regard for the human lives that are being destroyed in the process. Where are Jody and Kevin and Gloria Allred? They have been strangely silent after making a big splash just a while back.

I am so sick of seeing Kate state the obvious when asked to describe herself in that "first and foremost I am and will always be a mom first." I think with most moms that is a given and does not bear repeating at every opportunity.

And what does it say about Kate? If she truely believes Jon is a terrible parent how can she continuely go out of town and let Jon stay with the kids one day after another? If that is the case she should file for supervised visitation. And while waiting for the decision stay in town so she is close by in case something happens to one of the kids while Jon is there.

OK before I type my comment I first must CLARIFY that before first and foremost, above all and firstly, I am a MOM and a mother first of all to all of my children , whom I bore out of my body myself. First. Ok.
(whew)
Now: I dont' watch the shows (never have) and based on the TLC/Discovery I have seen lately, haven't been seeing many , if any , Khate/the Eight promos. So: are there no reruns on either? Hmmm And I have been relieved to see NO sign of Hate on any of the tabloids while at the store....
So based on that, isn't she shrinking in to obscurity now? That is exactly what I would have expected to happen after the big FINALE! of the "show." (which is Their Life and their Life is the SHow) But it's ARE life.... etc.
I digress.
So she's GONE now, ---right?

Jane in California said...

I found the tidbit about Kate considering setting her sights on Bobby Dean very entertaining. I could see a germ of truth in that thought -- in that Kate is a grifter. She went for Jon because of his wealthy father, pushover personality and he would help her produce some cute babies because of his heritage. Now his usefulness has long expired.

Bobby Dean on the other hand has a wealthy mother, his own income courtesy of his connections, never been married so no pesky kids in the picture. Kate is so full of herself, I could well imagine her turning her charms on him and thinking she could win him over. She completely forgets that she's been filmed many times emasculating Jon!

Further, no woman is gonna get by without Mama Paula's approval. And there is no way Kate would get that seal of approval, if by some chance Bobby Dean were so crazy as to even ask her out on a date! Those boys are mama's boys (I mean that in the nicest sense, in that they truly respect and love their mom) and I really doubt that Bobby would pick anyone as a mate that his mother seriously disapproved of.

Don't forget that in spite of his connections, Bobby Dean also has worked for his money. I bet Mama Paula has made sure that her boys have worked hard for their money and know the valueof a dollar.

Bobby Dean has a girlfriend named Katy Mixson who was in 4 Christmas. If you saw the movie she was Vince Vaughn's SIL. Personally I do not think Bobby (or Paula)would go for Kate. He likes the southern girl/belle type. From what I understand he is very laid back and easy going. Bobby definitely is going down the organic road. (Is that the high road Kate keeps referring to?)

I can believe the part about Paula being concerned about Kate stealing her thunder. Paula is as desperate for attention as Kate is, and there can only be room for one person like that. If I had to choose, I'd pick the crazy older lady who does anything for attention vs. the woman who exploited her children for attention.

However, it was plain as day from The View that Kate could not carry a show. I think the producers of this new show picked her at the peak of her "celebrity" when she was on the tabloids, thinking just having her associated with the show would bring in viewers. With her divorce and no Jon and Kate Plus Eight, there is very little reason for anyone to talk about her. Bottom line is, if there is nothing positive Kate can offer, there is no reason they are going to want the negative publicity and the attitude she brings to anything.

I suspected the show wasn't really happening a few weeks ago when I saw Paula on a talk show. Sorry I don't remember which. However, she was asked about the show with Kate. She hesitated and it took her a minute before she said the show hasn't been picked up yet. To have two people as well known as Paula and Kate and there be this much uncertainity, tells me this show must be really bad.

J&K+8 might have been a successful show and stayed on the air IF

*Kate had not shown her ass every chance she got (behavior-wise at first, then later literally as she dressed like a hooker every time she left the house)

*Kate and Jon had not become so greedy with the trips and freebies. If they had only done occasional specials with the kids. If they had attempted to stand on their own two feet instead of selling out the kids life experiences to give themselves the 'good life'.

*Kate had not acted and implied every show how tired and exhausting taking care of 8 kids was when we all knew she had not-a-nannies and cooks, not to mention all kinds of gardening help, etc once they moved into the mansion....she did very little with all the help she had and am sure many mothers of less than 8 kids on this forum do more work in a single 24 hr period than poor little Katie Irene does.

*They should have used discretion what got aired on TV. Colins disimpaction did not belong on TV. Kate did herself in with putting her children on the laundry room floor when they were sick and vomiting so they would not mess up the carpet or cause more laundry to have to be done. Oops as if she does all that laundry. We already know a little old lady come by on Thursdays just to fold all her crap. For free.

*I applaud Kevin & Jodi to love the kids enough to speak out on the kid behalf about what was REALLY going on.

Glee said...

And Hailey Glassman is the desperate idiot using Kate's tactic to get more headlines by trashing Jon.

Trashing Jon has become national sport. You don't know what's fake or real. And you really don't care anyway because it has become routine, cliche, expected... It gets really really boring and obnoxious. Deal with your own "not getting along" problems and stop talking to the press like it's breaking news, for God's sake.

No one cares, Hailey. Even Kate's 15 minutes is up. What are your chances?

Two clueless idiots said...

I totally agree with the previous poster's sentiment that J&K should have gone with a couple of annual television "specials" to update people on their lives. If they had half a brain cell between them, at the very beginning of the show's popularity they would have looked toward the future and thought, "hmmm...people possibly aren't going to be as interested in us as the kids grow up...maybe we should have some sort of plan." It could have been brilliant - two or three yearly specials (Christmas, Birthday, back to school, for example), negotiate a hefty sum for each of them (say, $100K per special - when they were hot, they could have negotiated a huge sum, I guarantee it.) They could have signed a contract for 10 years or so, guaranteed a handsome income to supplement what they WORK for, ensured that people don't get burned out, bored or disinterested in the kids and their lives because they're too saturated with information about them (most of it WAY TMI!). It could have been brilliant - stable, guaranteed income for years to come. People who enjoyed watching 2 preschoolers and 6 toddlers would presumably enjoy watching them grow and develop through the years. Maybe they could have even thrown in some bonus special episodes - sextuplet "graduation from High School" special, "6 new drivers in the house" special, "off to college" special, etc. It could have been a wise strategy to help support their family through the years. Heck, I can't stand Jon or Kate, and I would most likely watch occasional updates or specials just to see how the kids are developing!

However, expecting these two to act with any sort of wisdom, foresight, planning or maturity is just absurd. Their greediness, their sense of entitlement, their hunger for immediate gratification and their immaturity make wise, well planned decisions impossible.

It could have been such a great gig but they blew it. No surprise there, huh?

Kate must be SHOCKED that her breast implants, slutty outfits, and hooker shoes don't give her a hosting job on major networks. Oh my God! How could that be?!!!

She thought she got Hollywood and Television all figured out.

cringe fest said...

Kate can't continue to use the human shield (the 8 kids) to get what she wants. The kids are not little and they don't make viewers say "aww" no more. Instead, they make viewers cringe because they behave like their obnoxious mother. That's not good TV. That's just sad. Even if Kate and TLC bring the kids back on TV as a result of Jon being bullied, it will not be the same. The kids are loosing the appeal as we speak because their mother's bad influence.

Anybody with a brain will not want to work with Kate for long term. It's career suicide. Good for Paula making the right decision.

Rockerchick said...

Ya know what I find funny, Every time there is a pic of Kate at her house Steve is there. ( most recent was today on Kate loving site ) And we NEVER see anyone else there. So that tells me that someone ( throat clearing ) calls the paps and all the sudden we see her lover ( oops I mean Body guard) at her home. Well seeing as how she no longer has a show there is NO reason for a " body guard" right? Im SICK of seeing her and her open toe shoes. Her etiquette is HORRIBLE. YOU NEVER wear OPEN TOES after Labor Day. Everyone knows that. Guess you have to have some etiquette to practice it. And lord knows she has NO CLASS at all.

Rockerchick said...

To Hollywood. That was a great post. I thought the exact same thing when I read that she was kicked off the Paula show. How funny. All that money for new boobs and she cant show em off on tv anymore. I read an article where ( and Im sorry I dont remember who wrote it ) she does NOT appeal to most so ANY show TLC has in mind for her will never see the light of day. There is no demographic for her. Men cant stand her and woman with any taste wont tolerate her. Good thing she got her nurses license renewed. She is gonna need it.

Chronicworld said...

I saw the pictures of Steve and Family at Kate's for Christmas. There were a couple of pictures of Kate looking sad, tired, and much much older than her years.
I think maybe the reality of what she has brought down upon herself and her family might be beginning to dawn on her just a bit.
What goes around really does come around, Kate, and Karma is a bitch.

crabbygirl said...

The DESPERATION is really beginning to kick in for Hailey, Jon, and Kate.Personally I do not believe Kate feels any responsibility for her downfall. She definitely takes no ownership and feels victimized. Jon was crazy to hook up with Hailey. He went from one destructive relationship to another. I truly hope he doesn't become a deadbeat dad and try to use his kids for publicity like his old mentor, Michael Lohan. This whole thing has turned out to be the biggest trainwreck and sadly I believe there is more to come.

uneasy said...

To two clueless;

I believe that I read from Aunt Jodie that the choice was put to Kate (and Jon) of having either yearly specials or a continuing show. For the yearly specials they could have named their price, and while the continuing show would have been much less in actual payment, they would get the freebies for product placement and the lifestyle of the rich and famous (bodyguard, spa days, chefs, nannies, personal assistants, etc.). Obviously, they chose the lifestyle choice. My question here, is do you think they did it for their kids? Do you think they actually sat down and thought "Hmm, in the long run, this over exposure and artificial lifestyle is really what is best for the kids... Having a special every year with a couple of photo-spreads in the better magazines guaranteeing us a solid influx of cash to help pay for the sports and music lessons and extras for all eight kids but still preserving our privacy - no, that's not in the kids best interest."

* * * *

I do agree that Paula Dean is a diva, but the difference is -- she has some real talent. She is charming, personable, and from all I've ever heard or read -- she is unfailing in her charm toward fans in person. If she's having a bad day, you don't see it in her behavior. It's probably due in part to her personality and also to her southern upbringing.

That's why I can smile at her sometimes over the top behavior. Yes, she loves attention, the lights and the camera. Yes, I can see that she is a shrewd business woman, tough as steel when she needs to be. But I also have seen her give back - especially to charities that help abused women get out of bad relationships. She has a real heart. I can see the love radiate from her toward her family -- it's for real.

So I don't mind Paula Dean being crazy for the camera. She worked hard to get where she is and she deserves it.

Kate -- all she ever did was take fertility treatments she didn't need, to have multiples on purpose, to market them so she could have a reality tv show with lots of perks, money, and fame. I've never seen her express heartfelt love for her family, ever. She's the anti-thesis of a Paula Dean - ungracious, lacking in personality or charm, rude, boorish, dresses like a hooker, pokes fun at her children, screams at them, leaves them sick on laundry room floor, on and on.

The only mystery to me is why Paula Dean ever considered having Kate as a co-host for more than one second in the first place.

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

I think they saw the kids as their only means of support....they peddled their videos, tlc took the bait, viewers watched, and bam!, here was a way for two uneducated dimwits to support their too-large family. It morphed into some sort of beast, greed won, and now you have two self-absorbed parents. parents who see to their own needs first with the money the kids earned....the kids have nothing to show for it, except being exiled to a country estate and being told by classmates that they 'watch them in tv'. the kids will be seen as freaks when they become older. jon and kate are BOTH losers.

jasmine said...

I never understood why Kate would be given permission by TLC to film a show for another network. It didn't make sense that TLC would let her go since they are desperately trying to keep the brand. They obviously knew she wouldn't make the cut with Paula's pilot show.

If she's on TV shows proclaiming her support for TLC & what they're doing it's going to eliminate some of the things she can try & sue them successfully for later. kate's nasty, I think they know that & they know she'll be vengeful which usually leads to court. They've got plenty on tape of her support for their actions. For most arguments kate has effectively shot herself in the leg. There are other things she can probably go after them for, but she's removed many of the easier ones. It'd be really hard for her to turn around & claim they were exploiting the children after she's told everyone who will listen that that isn't true, much like she has on several other topics to do with TLC. She's trumpeted her opinions loud & clear on national TV.

How true. Kate is really a dullard who cannot see the wood for the trees.
All her championing of T.L.C. has diminished any claim she may think she has if and when they drop her.
She is as much a follower as Jon. She hangs on to T.L.C.'s coat tails thinking they will provide for her future.
I would love to be in on the meetings at T.L.C. when they discuss what to do with Kate.
Her B.F.F. BabaWaba will drop her like a hot potato when T.L.C. cuts her loose.

It was a interesting career aspiration.

It's a shame that she didn't spend the time to develop her craft and prepare for the opportunity. I am not part of the industry but am familiar with the training provided to executives for corporate communications -- every time Kate was granted an opportunity -- she blew it.

These executives are not willing to trust their products, their consumers, their shareholders and their bonuses to Kate's ability to deliver.

They would see:

[] lack of preparation
[] failure to stay on message
[] poor use of English
[] an image that came across as unsophisticated, unprofessional and unpolished.

Advice to Kate:
Anyone can change careers. Most take it a step at a time and work, work, work to learn the intricacies involved. Try volunteering to gain the experience and attend college to gain the technical experience.

You are competing against people that are 15 years younger than you, with no baggage, who are willing to work very hard to start their career.

Sorry if it's already been posted. Do any of you follow this blog, is this fellow reliable? I ask because this is the first time I've been to his site.

http://ca.eonline.com/uberblog/marc_malkin/b159755_kate_gosselin_never_actually_on_deens.html

I find this part very interesting:

"A source now tells me that Gosselin was never considered a serious contender to permanently join the chatfest panel consisting of Deen, former Early Show cohost Rene Syler, Lee Woodruff and comedian Judy Gold…

"She was never contracted to be on the panel," the source says. "She was just meant to be a guest.""

Doesn't that sound like Kate's PR people repackaging things again? They always want to spin her life er lies to the best advantage. They get away with it because the reporters don't bother to do even minimal research or fact checking any more.

Of course they're putting a spin on this. Her PR team is now trying to say that she was never considered for a hosting spot on this panel, yet when stories were flying that she was taping a pilot for a "View-type" talk show as member of Paula Deen's panel, they weren't denying it. Khate made it perfectly clear during her stint on the View that she wanted a talk show of her own. Problem is, she's not a professional, she's untrained, untalented and unlikable. Her PR team can spin this any way they want, but we all know she was canned because of her inability to contribute to a panel. That was obvious from her attempt on The View.

Brilliant description of how they could have made a sane and defensible plan to get the extra income they need for 8 kids and satisfy the interest of the public.

As for you, I think you could have a career as a life coach. Seriously.

Paula Deen Seems Real said...

This is a smart move on the part of the program's producers. It's only true: Kate IS controversial and it doesn't sound as if this type of show wants controversy. Sometimes Paula Deen gets on my nerves but mostly I enjoy her, watch her shows and I also subscribe to her magazine. She is really on a wave of self-promotion but why the heck not...strike while the iron's hot, so to speak. The main thing is that I sense she's a soulful person and genuine. I don't sense that in Kate Gosselin. Seems the two would not connect. There'd be no way to hide that on TV, "live" or otherwise. Kate doesn't appear to me to be able to participate in repartee; not good with the quick and spontaneous conversation (she's quite "rehearsed," IMO, in other guest appearances). I look at Kate as a loner...she could do the taped sofa conversations on the reality show because it was all about her and her life. But "playing with others" is probably not her strong suit and was no doubt easily felt by test audiences in this multi-host format with Paula. If TLC goes thru with the 2010 show which apparently documents Kate checking out organic restaurants or markets or whatever, it will be more up her alley because it's just her...except I can't see comfortable, free-flow of conversation between her and a chef or restaurant owner. I never thought she was very communicative or even polite to people who would host her and the family on the former reality show. She's not naturally friendly or authentically interested in other people; she won't be able to let them shine as she will want the focus and spotlight on her which I feel will be obvious and squirm-worthy for the viewer.

Just because Kate has a show that is "in development" doesn't mean that it may ever see the light of the TV screen. I'm sure they will focus group the heck out of it to see if they will get any of their cash back. I've been involved in some of those groups and some of the shows that we saw ended up on TV, others I never saw or heard anything else about them.

That "excuse/explanation" by the PR person sounds exactly the same as when Khate brought Cara and Mady to the talent agency and the Talent Lady outright told Khate that the two girls had "no talent". But Khate spun it to say that they did it "just for fun" and her schedule wouldn't allow them to go to NYC. hahahaha

Not Watching TLC said...

Just keep thinking HOW Khate is going to have a show that even is 1/10th as good as Guy's Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives? The thing that sells that show IS Guy! who btw has a traveling cooking-music show, as well as being a host that Food Network channel has brought to other shows (Dinner Impossible etc...)

No way is Khate going to appeal to the set that watches food shows. It takes a lot more charisma to be a host of an actual show, then walk around being a reality-ho who can't string a sentence together.

Good call. You can bet your bottom dollar if the agent would have offered any glimmer of encouragement, the family would have been on the plane the very same day.

she is evil said...

Plain and simple, Kate Gosselin is hopelessly hatable. Even on JK8, when she was on her best behavior, she was consistently mean and unlovable. She never made a move without first thinking of herself and the kicker is she is an incredibly arrogant know it all despite being quite uneducated and ignorant. Life has gotten much better since she and her miserable children got off the air.
