Kate on Sarah Palin's Alaska, December 12

It looks like they found enough footage to splice into a Palin episode. 

US Sneak Peak May have been pulled.

To keep this within the context of the blog, please do not branch off into Sarah Palin or aspects of the episode outside of Kate.  This is solely about Kate on this episode.  Thank you.

Further politics, your opinion of Sarah Palin, etc, are not relevant.

Tell Me It Isn't So

On Entertainment Tonight, there is supposedly an announcement that Kate is the Skating With the Stars correspondent.

May this last as long as her DWTS correspondent job.

Is It All Over But the Crying? Has the "Fat Lady" Sung?

Kate Replaced


Kate Gosselin's Kate Plus 8 Alaska special received only a third of the amount of views as did her season premier earlier this year. That is what we call last call for Kate Gosselin. TLC was hoping that the special would boost ratings and let them know if they could continue with Gosselin utilizing big specials as opposed to her weekly show. With last weeks ratings any hope for that scenario has fallen by the wayside. There really is no hope for Kate moving forward. Her reality TV career is all but over and there really isn't anything she can do about it.



Thank you, Hippie Chick.

Jon's Update on the Hearing Issued October 15

As you may or may not be aware, I have been working for some time to remove my children from television. I do not believe being on TV is beneficial to any of them. They are no longer toddlers that are oblivious to what is going on around them. They are now six and ten, in school and desperately in need of a normal life.

Each of them has experienced negative effects of having their lives so public. Some are struggling with emotional and/or behavioral issues. My goal for my children is for them to have a normal childhood, and gain back their much deserved privacy. This is not about money, this is about my children. No amount of money is worth the price my children are paying. You cannot put a price on childhood. Money comes and goes, but you only have one childhood.

For those questions about money and support, I can say I am supporting my children to the best of my ability. All parties involved know the truth about this. I am and have been actively seeking employment. I have been barred from accepting entertainment deals that would generate income for my family due to contractual obligations. I am also actively looking for a job outside of the entertainment industry and so far, have not secured a position. In the mean time, I have been focusing on spending time with my children and providing a safe, stable, normal and private environment for them!

On October 13, 2010, I went to court to act in the best interest of my children- to remove them from television. The judge respectfully denied my plea, and granted filming rights to their mother. I honor the judge’s decision, but I do not support it. I will not stop fighting to remove my children from television. It is not a child’s job to support themselves, or a lifestyle, they need to be kids. I would like to apologize to my friends, family, and especially my children for not taking a stand earlier in my life and not questioning my decisions to have our lives documented and displayed. I will have to answer to my children for the rest of my life. I will have to live with this guilt the rest of my life. I am truly sorry!

Let's Play a Game

Do you know where there are specific examples where Kate says something about how filming, doing the show, or working is detrimental to the children's lives? Things like "we can't go anywhere without being followed." or "We can't be a normal family" are what I'm thinking about.  If you remember them and can cite the episode or interview so others can see that would be great.  If they are up on youtube or somewhere like that and you know the timestamp even better. 


Let the fun begin.

Is The End In Sight?

When people other than us start blogging that Kate is not longer relevant is it time to think about getting out the marshmallows and toasting forks?

Is Kate's career over?

Kate's Lies Part ?

We used to have posts to list the Gosselins' or Kate's lies and haven't done it in awhile.  So fire away with the updated and current version of Kate's lies.  I just approved a perfect comment for the list.



So they close the store for Kate and crew - hence the crowd on the sidewalk. We've seen numerous photos of Kate shopping and is there ever a crowd gathered - NO. She claims if they quit the show, all the paparazzi negatives will remain. It's been revealed this week that there is 1 paparazzi and as we've seen, Kate garners no attention unless she's followed by a camera crew and boom mike. Seriously, if you're out shopping and you spot a camera crew and a guy with a boom mike following someone wouldn't most of us go investigate what the heck is going on. This week's shopping photos - filming vs. non-filming trips - confirms it's not Kate's celebrity grabbing people's attention when she's in public, it's the massive entourage with cameras, boom mikes, bodyguards, etc. that follows when filming.

Reality TV Good or Bad

Does being on a reality TV show help or hinder a family? Does it depend on the family dynamic before the TV show or does the TV show change the people? Does it take a certain type of person to want to put their private life on TV?

Some people say that anyone would do it for the money while others say never. What is the difference in their outlook on life to reach the different conclusions?

Opinion Piece by a Reader

A sociologist has written an opinion piece to USA Today about children in reality TV.

Excerpt: "So what's different when it comes to kids and reality television? These kids are not classified as performers, denying them the protection of Coogan laws. In fact, the children are not even classified as workers, also denying them the protection of child labor laws. Kid reality stars fall through the cracks of the protections crafted by early 20th-century reformers, who likely never imagined that someone would consent to potty-training their children on camera (Season Three, Episode 4 of Jon & Kate Plus Ei8ht)."

Warning: There Is A New Sheriff in Town!

It is only fair that we pass on this threat that we received today to our posters. Please behave with caution. This is a direct copy and paste, but we did want to make sure that our posters here knew that we didn't write this badly, so there are a few suggested corrections.

"Beginning August 2010, I will be Kate Gosselin's spokepernon (sic) for people like you: Haters on Kate.
.
Here's the deal.......
I will go toe to toe with all the haters. If you dog Kate, I dog you! (sic) If you talk about her parenting skills, I will talk about yours. If you talk about her looks I will take a picture of you, post on the internet and ruthlessly poke at your looks.
.
If any of you approach Kate with your bull*hit YOU WILL GO TO JAIL (should be a period?)
I will create a blog that specifically targeting blogs like this.(sic) I am hiring a private investigator to get ALL THE DIRT (background checks, credit checks, employment history.(end of parenthesis, sic?) I will circulate newsletters about you in your neighborhoods and on the internet.
.
Kate's children HATE you and wish you would direct your so-called concern for them somewhere else.
.
If you don't want to see Kate on TV, change your channel (punctuation, sic)
.
Stop trying to count Kate's money. It is none of your damn business (as above) Should this be damned?.Stop trying to tell Kate what her career choice should be. It ain't your business (punctuation, damned?).
Kate IS raising her children! How she raises her children is none of your damn (damned?) business. Why don't you mind your family and not Kate's? Go start your hate campaign with Toddlers and Tiaras or Raising Sextuplets on WE TV.
.
Kate doesn't have to deal with you hags. I will deal with you and I DARE you to harass her, intimidate her, threaten her, come on her property, etc.
.
By the way, stop calling that hag Jodi, Kate's children aunt. Jodi and Kevin HAVE NOT seen Kate's children for over two years AND in Kate's home they are not liked or welcomed. Jodi is not an aunt. Jodi and Kevin paid off their home exploiting Kate, Jon and the eight children. (I think Jodi is their aunt.)
There is a new sheriff in town and it is me. Mark my words... I am out for blood."


That was interesting. There was an update!


"Here you bitches go again! Why are you worried about Kate and kids getting $700,000 for 4 episodes? Ain't your money. Charlie Sheen is getting 1.78 million per episode and he is a crack head, jail bird and he ain't funny.
.
Why you bitches are worried 'bout Kate's titties is beyond me. Kate's kids cannot stand you. Her boys want to "whup" some ass."



So you have been warned. I look forward to seeing us all on "America's Most Wanted".

Z's Take

From Z's blog at the Baltimore Sun.

I confess that I did not stick around for the full second hour Sunday, which was titled "Inside Kate's World." I could not care less about Kate or what's "inside" her world anymore. It is too packaged, phony, compromised and debased for me. Life is too short to spend too much time with this kind of television. Besides, I was embarrassed for some of the folks from the world of TV entertainment journalism who agreed to be part of the hype, hype, hype, sell, sell. sell. Not to be holier than thou, but they should look in the mirror Monday morning and ask themselves if this is what they want to do with their careers.
How absolutely true it was along with his saying the entire episode was hype, hype, hype, and sell, sell, sell.

That it was Kate has become isn't it a shill for TLC to simply push the show and whatever they are giving us an ad for that week?

DWTS the Rest of the Season


Everyone has seemed to have a pretty good time talking about DWTS so here is a space for to talk about how the rest of the season plays out. Enjoy!

Proposed New Law Inspired by Our Not so Favorite TV Show

From Rep Murt:

At that hearing, we heard testimony from officials at the Department of Labor and Industry as well as a number of experts and individuals who have been involved in television productions. Among them was Paul Petersen, who was a very successful and popular child actor himself and knows first-hand, the pitfalls of involving a child in this kind of work.

Based on the testimony we heard at the hearing, I have developed House Bill 2515. This bill is aimed at addressing several holes in the current law which were identified at the hearing. My legislation would:

Require all minors to have a work permit issued by the state Department of Labor and Industry to ensure all adequate provisions have been made for the minor’s educational instruction, supervision, health and welfare.

Restrict minors to work between the hours of 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. and set guidelines for amount of hours for work, recreation, school work, and activities per work day.

Require the presence of a state certified “set teacher” on the set of any production. This person will serve as an advocate for the minor to ensure the minor’s health, education, and moral safety on the set. In addition, this person will monitor the working conditions, the minor’s mental health, and the demands placed on the minor to ensure they are appropriate to the minor’s age, strength, and stamina.

Require that 15 percent of a minor’s gross earnings be set aside by the employer in a trust for the minor. At least one parent or legal guardian shall be trustee of these funds unless otherwise determined by a court.

Pennsylvania’s law must evolve to address current conditions. As the number of films and television shows produced in Pennsylvania continues to increase, it is only sensible that we adjust our laws to ensure they address the particular issues associated with that industry.

Nowhere is that more important than on issues which have an impact on children. We must ensure our labor laws provide appropriate protections for the children involved. My legislation will do that.



FoxPhilly story.

Thngs We Are Called that We Are Not

This is a partial list of what the Kate fans have called us. I had thought people could add to the list.

1. Fat (at least not most of the ones I know).

2. Shribbled old cat ladies (Doesn't shribbled mean we aren't fat?).

3. Haters.

4. Cows.

5. Child advocates (At least I am not. Shocking but I have never claimed to be one.)

6. A nosy neighbor.

7. Jealous.

8. Bad mothers. Some of us don't even have children.

9. On welfare/food stamps (maybe one or two with the bad economy).

Please continue and add to the list. Enjoy.

Kate's Behavior as Art by Annie Louise

Once again, this falls into the “why was I using any brain cells even thinking of this?” category. But something occurred to me about how people here are so criticized by the sheeple for the way we point out seemingly small things about Kate. They think we pick on her for things that don’t matter. But it’s actually a lot like pointillism (welcome back to art history class, folks.)

You know it – the style of art (Georges Seurat, etc.) in which the artist uses small dots of paint. Viewed up close, it looks like random little blobs. You step back a bit, and a whole, very cohesive picture appears. (pixels on an LCD TV work the same way to form an image.)So while we may talk about little “dots” a good deal of the time – hair extensions, a scowly photo, a cackly laugh, a sick tup on the laundry room floor, “come and get your popcorn,” a book tour away from the kids – we’re all keenly aware of the big picture those things form. Taken by themselves, I don’t think anyone would think twice about one of the “dots.” But each one fits into the big picture, and it’s a damn ugly and disturbing one.She just keeps supplying us with dot after dot to add to the picture, doesn’t she?

Thank you Annie Louise

Tues, Apr 20, Fourth Elimination Round

Thank goodness that is over!!

Let's Save All the Kids on Reality TV

Someone here just recently said that all they want is for the Gosselin children to not be filmed. That used to be enough for me, too, but now that's changed.

I want the Gosselin 8 to have money in irrevocable accounts, under the supervision of an impartial outsider whose focus is on the best interests of the children.

But...

I also want all children on 'reality TV' to have across-the-board protections, starting with proper pay and protection, all under the supervision of, again, an impartial outsider whose focus is on the best interests of the children.

What is she pretending to dance this week? Poor Tony I've never seen him hold back this much on performing with any other dancer.

Kate and the Fox Trot. Oh, joy, Tony drags Kate around the floor some more.

How can Kate looked bored and zoned out dancing with Tony?
Thanks again to http://jonandkateplus8snark.blogspot.com/2010/04/april-12.html


Kate appears on the dance floor. I'm sorry I can't say that she will actually dance. She did seem to try this time.

Mon, April 5, DWTS Third Dancing Show Lasso that Paso

Screen caps in the order of how they amused me. Well if Kate can't get her leg in the air, poor Tony will have to do it for her. I admit she pointed a toe tonight.


Feet? I have feet and they are supposed to be doing something. Now exactly what was that?

Yeah, I am Boadicea on top and Charo in a cheap skirt on the bottom. No one can tell me the dress designer does not despise her. What is with that mess of hair and the clown makeup again?

More screencaps available at http://jonandkateplus8snark.blogspot.com/2010/04/dancing-with-non-star.html


Kate did manage somewhat to look mad but she failed stomping. How could she?



Rumor has it Kate is doing Paso Doble. That is possibly the best dance for Kate out of all the choices. She knows how to look mad and stomp.

DWTS First Round Elimination Tues Mar 30


Will Kate last through the round or spare us and go home?
Comments are open again to talk about who is or isn't eliminated and happenings on the elimination episode tonight.

DWTS Second Show Mar 29 AKA She's Out of Her League

Laser eyes.

Bruno's Stepford comment.



It's the jive. Can Kate move that fast?



Kate answers the question. No she not only can't jive, she can't contain her evil personality.

Will Kate Ever Get It? by Judgement Day

I wonder if the Kate we don't see, actually tosses and turns in the wee hours, knowing she's attained her notorious fame and substantial wealth on the backs of her eight children...admitting to herself in the quiet of night that she is truly Kate The Fake.

I wonder because of my own experience...as a fake. You see, I inherited a small house. I could never own one on my own because I mismanaged my money. During this time, a friend of mine was frugal and made great sacrifices to buy his home. I feel like a fraud compared to him because I came by things too easily. He has a quiet, unvoiced pride and peaceful contentment I'll never have, because I didn't do it on my own like he did. I didn't come by my gift of a home in an authentic way. I'll never have his satisfaction that comes with honest achievement and hard work.

Kate thinks being a mom is hard work; exhausting. But, really, her often-touted, long bedrest before delivery of those tups was a small price to pay for how easy it's been to triple her investment hundreds of times over. Just take a look at how she lives and the lifestyle to which she has become accustomed.

She didn't get that on her own, through individual endeavor...she has what she had because of her kids. Friends tell me I'm too hard on myself as I search for my own humility and atonement...but, I have to wonder, will Kate ever search for hers?


Thanks to Judgement Day

Advice to All of Us from "Kate's Friend"

Kate HAS THE RIGHT to earn a living.
You CANNOT or WILL NOT EVER tell her how to raise her children.
You DO NOT sign her paychecks.
You DO NOT pay her bills.
You DO NOT put food on her table.
You CANNOT decide her career choice.
You CANNOT tell Kate what she should wear.
You CANNOT decide how she styles her hair.
You CANNOT decide where Kate and her children will live.
You CANNOT EVER tell Kate to let her irresponsible ex-husband, Jon, to stay in HER house when she is away for whatever reason.
DO NOT watch Kate on TV if you don’t like her.
DO NOT read about Kate or comment about Kate if you do not like her.

Dancing With the Stars

It's official.

Also we will not be doing recaps of DWTS episodes or of Kate's dance(s). We will have a thread for each week that Kate remains on the show.

Please keep the discussion to Kate and DWTS not the other contestants or things about the show unless they relate to Kate. You can keep talking about who to vote for in competition with Kate, but comments saying things similar to I like so and so because she's x, y, and z are too off topic. Thank you very much.

An Open Letter to Jon by Silimom

I don't know why I'm moved to do this. That's not true. I do know. You have 8 beautiful kids who are being continually messed up by your and Kate's self centeredness and they deserve better.

I hear tell you're planning on settling with TLC and perhaps are willing to negotiate allowing your children to be filmed again. You've made a number of poor choices this past year, Jon. Don't make another one.

I do not fault you for trying to work out your differences with TLC. But don't sacrifice your children to do it.

(Continued)

Thank you Silimom.

Kate surely is exemplifying this one.

Possible New Show for Kate

Details here for Kate's potential new show. Although we've been hearing about it for months, it now sounds like TLC is starting up the PR machine.

The show will also likely have an interactive component, with the professions and corresponding challenges being somewhat determined by the audience..."Does this mean that we can vote for Kate to do hard and dirty jobs and she will have to do them? (From Cheetah)


Just saw this on US Weekly... this show seems just about as interesting as watching paint dry. I'd have more fun watching Dora the Explorer with my kiddo!! http://www.usmagazine.com/moviestvmusic/news/scoop-new-details-on-kate-gosselins-upcoming-reality-show-2010131 (From Addi's mom)

Any Positive Stories? By Two Clueless Idiots

I don't know if I actually care enough about Kate or Jon to HATE them, but I certainly don't like them, admire them or desire to ever be in the same room with them... They are horrible examples of human beings and parents - both selfish and immature beyond belief.

Here is a question I have for those who call me a hater or jealous, though. Can anyone, anywhere, give a firsthand account of positive interactions with Kate Gosselin? Does anyone who has had direct interaction with her have anything positive to say? You never hear anyone saying, "Yes, she's really personable" "she's friendly" "she's down to earth" "she's kind" or "she was so warm to my children" or anything else even remotely positive. Where are the people who have had direct interaction with her who have good things to say? Neighbors? Townspeople? Shopkeepers? Friends? Fellow parents? Fans? Church members? J&K+8 guests/hosts who have provided all these wonderful "culturizing" activities for their kids?

All I've heard about is a demanding, demeaning, controlling, wacko B*&^H. There are plenty of stories about her horrible behavior...where are the stories of kindness, graciousness or civility? I have always found it very suspect that anyone who has had any contact with her has been required to sign confidentiality agreements. This is NOT normal, and would be totally unnecessary if anyone had anything remotely positive to say about interactions with her.

Please, someone, anyone, come out of the woodwork with personal stories of positive interactions with Kate Gosselin. I would love to hear personal stories of how her kindness or generosity helped mold your image of her. I would love to hear how you were inspired by watching her interact lovingly and patiently with her children. I would love to hear that there is another side of Kate that is warm, genuine, caring, compassionate, considerate and kind. I would be willing to reconsider all the very negative thoughts I've had about her as a person and as a parent if people would come forward and give descriptions of direct instances of meaningful, positive interactions with her. Anyone? ANYONE????

Thank you to Two clueless idiots.
