Well, it looks like on the Maryland Docket for the case against Jon Gosselin may go to mediation. As of 12.23.09 Tlc deposited their retainer.

Reading Eagle had a article today 01012010 stating Kate plus 8 may go forward in the spring according to a TLC official. (unnamed of course)

Face it the only way Kate Gosselin can earn a living is if those kids work to earn her paycheck & lifestyle. How pitiful they are...how pitiful they are. & I mean, TLC, Figure 8, Jon & Kate.

Figure 8 has the audacity to have pictures of Figure 8 dogs that are treated as good as employees. Too bad the Gosselin dogs were just props.

Hello? Is there anyone left in the world interested in seeing these kids on tv every week? They are growing up and are not cute or well behaved at all. Ok, maybe Alexis is still kind of cute, but still..all they do is hit and scream and take in freebies. Enough! Even the sheeple should be over it by now, but that is asking way too much I know..

do u have a link please?

On the wee-hour web, just read "cultural predictions" via NEWSWEEK, "Along came the phalanx of Tiger Woods mistresses and, suddenly, nary a supermarket tabloid splashed hot-pink ink over the estranged Gosselin couple. And to them, ink is money. But no matter: stick some jumper cables into ole Jon & Kate Plus Eight, get a little reconciliation action going, maybe some crocodile tears, and we can restore harmony to the universe. Given that TLC has temporarily put a court-ordered stop to Jon's media appearances, it can't be long before he goes sniffing for a new coffer-padding project. This is too easy."

Just what I thought/feared all along.

ChurchMouse said...

Since Katie Irene has lost her alleged spot on "Momlogic," it is rumored that she will be doing a reality dating show.

I can't see how this could possibly help her kids. Oh, right, the money.

Can you see her trying to explain this one to her brood?

"Mommy, are you really going dating for another daddy?"

"No, pumpkins, Mommy just needs to make some money. So Mommy will pretend to go on dates with men. For money."

"But Mommy, isn't there a word for women who go out with men in exchange for money?"

Way to set an example to your daughters, Kate.

Of course, the last episode will have Jon come back as "The Mystery Date," and there will be a Huge Reconciliation, leading up to the next show, called, "Make Room For Daddy's Legal Defense Fund."

The new show will feature Jon and Kate in "therapy", and sadly enough, the kids will also be filmed.

For Money. Not for anything else.

Hi Irene,

Over on ROL, they have a new article with Damon Feldman (Hailey's new man)asking Jon to box him for a $120,000. purse. Of course, Damon has been boxing since he was a kid. He's 210 lbs. and works out every day. Jon has not been boxing or working out, as far as I can tell.

How about, if they have Kate come in the ring and yell, belittle and give them orders and see how Damon can take that.

Or even better, let's have Kate and Hailey box each other. I have a feeling that Kate could be a good boxer. Over on Z on TV, last Nov. 15th...one of the columns about what we thought might happen to J&K....I had Kate becoming an ultimate fighter. I'd pay to see Kate and Hailey fight. Oh hell, I'd pay to see Jon and Kate fight.Oh wait, I think, I already did.

eagleeyed said...

oh so dramatic.

For the Moment? said...

What are you saying, Irene? That they are dropping the case against Jon and vice versa and he will allow the kids to be filmed again? How crazy is that? The kids are all basket cases and not fit for filming. I guess that is the only way both Jon and Kate can make the type of living they are accustomed is to ride off the backs of those kids. The kids should be empowered by this, instead of beaten down to head hanging, afraid to move or talk and have fun like normal kids. So sad...if I had the time and the means I would lobby Congress to mandate fertility clinics to implant no more than 2 embryo in a single person only after a mandated trial period of natural conception as these multiples are nothing but commodiities for their parents in not all cases but certainly many. I think they already have that mandate on the table in the UK.

Melissa said...

Have you all heard the rumor that Kate is going to be part of a DATING show??

It was in the NY Daily News today.

What poor sap would want to go on THAT show?
They should name it ' Date Kate the Praying Mantis' - they rip their mate's head off after they mate.

Jon is broke and will allow his children to be pimped out once again by TLC. He will still get paid out his contract, and may well get more payments once the new show starts....

Jon realizes he can't make money on his own...his 15 minutes are up.

What TLC doesn't realize is that fans are fickle, once you're out of the spotlight, they tend to forget you rather quickly.

I have doubts that Kate's new show will fly....who really wants to see that woman dragging her kids all over the place just to be filmed.

We(watched) the show when it was about a struggling family with mulitples, and you watched out of interest and awe about how demanding it would be to raise multiples...now it's about a fame whore and her little paychecks.

The end is near!

Aunty Kim Kim said...

Has ANYONE heard how the children are doing, since they've stopped filming?

Is child services involved at all, to ensure their safety?

Does anyone know if the twins are still in counselling, and if by chance the 'sextups' are in counselling yet?

I reeally do hope all the children had a good Christmas and that they are ready to go back to school, where they can at least interact with more people than their parents and Kate's bodyguards' family.
They need school more than anything right now!

GOD BLESS these children! And GOD help these children!!!! I pray that once they get older that they'll realize how many adults were praying and trying to help them!!!

jibberjabbers said...

Hailey business partner/lover is challenging Jon to a boxing match.

Yep, this was a PR stunt all along. But, it wasn't for Jon. It was for Hailey and her new lover/business partner. Both of them should be investigated.

------

Kate Plus 8 will go forward? So the tups are going to continue their 3 days of schooling instead of attending school full-time?

The kids are getting older now. It's time to let them move on with their life and catch up. Kate Gosselin also needs to move on.

Janine said...

I couldn't believe the b**ls on K8 when I saw the latest scam (Dating Show). I don't use foul language, but she is a W***E and this is clearly just one more way for her to cash in on her contrived situation. I used to think Jon was a victim and really brainwashed and gave him some space and grace to be a bone head. He needs to man up, for sure. He can't stop K8 from trying to put it out there... and I can't imagine for one second this will fly, but Jon needs to rescue those kids from this insanity. I would watch K8 on FEAR FACTOR or SURVIVOR. I would cheer her on in that situation. That would require her to be humble and sacrifice some comfort while not inflicting harm directly on her kids. That woman is insane. Please, DEAR Lord, let these kids have some peace. Money is the root of evil (I believe) and will never satisfy her. Her kids are being raised in a vacuum and they will be socially retarded. Harsh words. Perez Hilton had a good point in his tabloid article... he gives K8 credit for being more capable (I disagree) but said if this or any show like it makes it to air, it will ruin her. Can't someone intervene?

Janine said...

What is Kate Gosselin dot org. ?
I ran across that the other day! Is she a corporation now?

And WHY was Jon ordered to pay her support?

She is a witch.

Irene said...

The link to the Reading Eagle newspaper.
http://readingeagle.com/article/aspx?id=182649

I truly agree with David Zurawik on Z ON TV. Google Z on TV that TLC is planting stuff to see what the media temperature is.

They need Jon's permission to film the kids. Well, Hellooo, they cut of his ***** & livelihood of any sort, so he is going to have no choice but relent. Kate cannot do anything without those kids. All her tryouts The View, interviews, and such are truly the work of a wannabe amateur that cannot play with the big dogs. So, the only way she can have a show is with the kids.

Z on TV is starting to get the Kool Aide comments which usually means the TLC interns are up to image repair, but we are not buying it over there as ya'll here have not bought it for a long time.

I think we just have to remember the kids. We have to keep up the campaign that filming of these kids is detrimental and why. The bottomline is the show gained the notoriety because of the tabloid breakup & subsequent stuck on stupid of the parents & production company.

Jon can't work for anyone but TLC because of his contract. Kate Gosselin cannot work for anyone but TLC because of her contract & the fact that there is so much negativity surrounding her she cannot be protected by anyone but TLC.

Irene said...

The article from the Readingeagle 01012010
http://readingeagle.com/article.aspx?id=182649

Ok. The reason I think Kate plus 8 will move forward is manyfold. Jon has been annihilated by his own antics and Tlc's strict contract. Tlc has stopped at nothing to crush the man. So, he will relent and allow filming of the children.

Kate has had tryouts in other mediums, The View, Leno, interviews, she bombs at all of them. She is a nobody in a big pond of real actors, comedians, cooks, and parents. She is so self manufactured by TLC she is nothing outside of them.

Jon cannot get further work because of his contract with Tlc. That man will never work in show business because of it.

What must we do? What ya'll have been doing well before me? Keep focusing on the detriment of filming of the kids.

Also, keep in mind Kate cannot do anything without the protection of TLC. Look at Mom's Logic, that who thing tells me TLC may not pay attention to emails & letters but others do.

It seems like I care alot about what Kate does to the Kool Aide camp. I got my 1st harassing email today. Oh, Lordie Bee they must think I am gonna take my white plastic chair and sunglasses and hide. No way.

Team 8

For the Moment? said...

Please pray that Jon does not take this guy up on that..oh yeah..he can't. They know that. Talk about publicity hounds. I think we now know why Hailey is willing to bring back Jon's property, she got enough out of it for what it was worth to her. How else could this group ever be heard.

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

He'd do better by going on Dr. Drew's "Celebrity Intervention."

In the musical "Chicago," the attorney character Billy Flynn tells his client:

"The first thing we do is work up
sympathy from the press. They're not all pushovers ... But there's one thing that they can NEVER resist--and that is a reformed sinner."

Jon gets counseling, repairs his reputation, and gets back on his feet.

And with any luck, he'll actually use the counseling, understand how to keep his reputation, and stay on his feet. And be happy and a good parent to his kids.

JJ said...

I have lost all anger and interest towards these 2 trolls. With the underwear bomber and Tiger Wood's discretions, the Gosselins are going to have to shoot each other to gain any interest.

There is a interesting poll in the NY Daily News about Khate's Dating Show. 32% said they would be interested, 46% said NO, 22% said no opinion. The comments were more interesting, only 1 person called her a good mother. 2 guys will "bang" her and run. All the rest basically called her a fame chasing no talent and Whore selling her children and why is she not getting a job to support her children??

pinkdiamond611 said...

Hate to say it but the Kons are addicted to the fame and fortune. Yawn does NOT want it to stop, even though he claims he does. He is going to re-sign and allow the kids to do the show. It was even on one of those entertainment shows last night, and the Dr. on there said fame addiction is as strong as if you have alcohol or drug addiction, you simply crave it and go into withdrawal if you don't get it.

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

Child Protective Services would never pop in just to see how the Gosselin kids are doing. There are never enough people to see who has been reported, let alone to see those we think need to be protected.

Government offices are usually grossly understaffed and lots of things (and children) fall between the cracks.

Really now, the Gosselin kids have a bed of their own to sleep in every night. There is food in their kitchen. They bathe and change clothes regularly. Neither parent beats them or each other up. Life isn't like that for lots of kids who really do need protection.

Happy New Year said...

If Kate Plus 8 is a go, TLC and Kate will have the harsh reality check - people do move on.

The kids are too old now. Seriously. They look like Kate, talk like Kate, and act like Kate. The magic is gone.

Brummygirl said...

Smoke and mirrors, smoke and mirrors. These are the magician's tools. The magician otherwise known as T.L.C.
These are all their little games to keep Kate's name in the public eye.
Could anyone really visualise Kate on a dating show.

#1 Scenario:
Kate in pink sequined dress showing both jugs and thighs, shouting "Come and get yer a girlfriend".

#2 Scenario:
The limos pull up filled with men.....they take one look at Kate standing there...no one has told them who the girl is.....the limos do a quick U-turn and with squealing tires..leave.

#3 Scenario:
A curtain divides the contestants and Kate who is waiting to snap questions.

Kate: "Do you know how to clip coupons?".

A giggle from the audience.
No reply from the contestants who are only on this gig for the $10,000 T.L.C. is paying.

Kate: "Is it in your abilitishness to scam the public?"
Nervous coughs from the audience.

Kate: "I cannot hear you breathing!! ARE YOU BREATHING TOO QUIETLY?"
Silence:

A sharp intake of breath comes from the audience who BAA whilst waiving their tails in agitation thus causing a wind to raise Kate's mop head.
Kate struggles off the white plastic stool showing next week's washing and stomps around the curtain in her $500 hooker shoes to find the stage empty!!!
A look of complete disbelief crosses her plastic assisted face as she unknowingly squeezes her cardboard coffee cup which empties into her gigantic purse thus obliterating all her bills!

The Sheeple once again BAA, this time their tails droop.
Can this be happening to their Star? Who wouldn't want to date Kate?
And the answer is..NO ONE!!!

Jane in California said...

The only way Jon and Kate made money was by selling their children's early years to TLC. Of course, being dumb as rocks in addition to greedy lazy no-talent slackers, they have no business sense or financial smarts. If either of them socked it away, you know it was Kate, into multiple accounts that she now considers "her" money. She was only forced recently into opening separate savings accounts for each child, and I am sure put the bare minimum in each one.

Wouldn't it be funny if it was Jon who got the dating show? Once the divorce is final, some less than halfwit TV producer just might see the light, realize that Jon is the more likeable (waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more) of the two, and put him on some show where he gets a trainer, starts going to the gym to get fit, and starts dating z-list celeb women. The producers look for domineering blond women, and Jon rolls his eyes for the camera.

As to Kate and a dating show - I'm rolling with laughter. Can you imagine the confidentiality contracts for that baby? Here's an idea, drag one of those Jersey Boys in, or better yet, one of Victoria Gotti's bull-neck sons! Let's see a knock down brawl when Kate and some loud mouth guy go toe to toe, mano a mano! TLC execs - I'm telling you, this could be a ratings winner - I will even tune in for that. Let the glasses and curses fly.

As to a reconciliation -- everyone with a lick of sense will laugh and point their fingers and call those two on their lies. If TLC execs are so stupid they think they'll get even moderate ratings for some sad sack show that has 6 sad, mixed up six-year olds whining, crying and hitting each other while mommy and daddy bicker and once again "promise" their 8 kids that they "be together forever", then they deserve their pink slips that will surely follow.

Hey TLC execs, karma is a bitch and she's honing her sights right on you. You can try to hide behind Kate, but since that's where the worst payback is headed, I wouldn't advise it.

2badsosad said...

Kate CANNOT find work and Jon CANNOT work per TLC court order. I guess the eight little Gosselin money makers will be forced once again to be the bread winners in the family. I bet this time J & K make damn sure the children have their working permits. Statue of Liberty here we come!

Though both devastating, I have always believed that emotional scars take longer to heal than the physical ones. Those kids may not have been beaten or starved - but they have been paraded around and treated like meal tickets by the two people who were supposed to protect them.

Enough is Enough said...

Reading Eagle had a article today 01012010 stating Kate plus 8 may go forward in the spring according to a TLC official. (unnamed of course)

________________________

This is so disturbing. I feel so bad for the kids, who will be thrown back in front of the camera, if this is true. As we all know, Kate said in the beginning that they would only film, as long as the whole family was on board with it. We know this was a lie, as Jon clearly stated on one episode, he was no longer on board with filming, yet Kate wanted to continue. Then later, after the crap hit the fan, and it was going to be just Kate Plus 8, Jon refused to allow the kids to be filmed. So why would he change his mind now?
He is their father/parent and can say no at any time. Please tell me he is not going to be bullied by TLC into giving in and allowing them to be filmed again. This is sounding like things are going the way many predicted. But no matter what, Jon can say no to filming his kids.

For God's sake, can J & K find some other way to make a living without putting their kids to work again. These kids need some normalcy (minus the cameras) in their lives. J & K obviously could care less about this "little" issue, and I would bet if you asked Mady and Cara, they both want to stay camera-free. I can only imagine the ridicule and embarassment these two face daily with two Jack-O-Lanterns for parents. Jon sleeping with everyone who has a pulse, and Kate, too busy seeking fame to have any real time or interest in attending to THEIR needs.

I am totally disgusted with the thought of Jon allowing this, but at this point, nothing surprises me any more with these two selfish, lazy users. Their kids will hate them one day for this, if they don't already and rightfully so.

Down the road, at least one of the kids will tell all, and make money off their parents' horrible decisions and behavior. Now that will be much deserved by these two clowns, but unfortunately, the damage will be already be done to these kids. Very sad.

silimom said...

What are you saying, Irene? That they are dropping the case against Jon and vice versa and he will allow the kids to be filmed again?

****
Irene is simply restating a prediction that was made the minute TLC filed their lawsuit against Jon by several posters on this forum. It really didn't take a crystal ball to see this coming, just plain old common sense.

It will be interesting to see what happens when they begin filming. Many of us are saying that the public is fickle and won't turn in. I disagree. I think because they dominated the news this past summer that people will turn in, just to try and see how the kids are doing. There will be initial high ratings, but they will decline over time. After all, the kids are in school all day (unless Kate is planning on taking them out and having them tutored like other professional child actors are ). How much filming can they really do? I personally don't care to watch Kate getting her hair done, hitting the tanning salon and shopping at Target. As for the kids, sorry, but I have enough on my hands getting my kids to finish their own homework. I really don't want to watch the kids do theirs.

And where on earth are they going to take them? They were already starting to recycle episodes (the recent farm episode, etc.). The show has jumped the shark. The only way it will survive if it is about Jon and Kate and their animosity towards each other or their "reconciliation". And honestly, I really don't see them getting back together. I think Kate believes she can do better and deserves better. Jon has nothing to offer her in terms of finances or property or status and if she ever did love him she clearly doesn't now.

So yes, there will be a Kate + 8 in the spring. The best thing we can all do? Ignore it as much as possible and simply continue to work for a federal law to protect children in the entertainment industry, regardless of whether they're filming a fictional story or a documentary or a "reality show". It will be too late for the Gosselin 8 but we can pray that they will be able to rise about this as adults.

hopingtoneverseekateagain said...

Another theory is that the writer of the article just didn't do complete research and picked up info from an outdated article and recycled it.

silimom said...

I went to the link someone posted and it's no longer on the reading eagle site. I then searched through the reading eagle site and could not find anything that mentioned Kate + 8.

Jane in California said...

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

This wouldn't surprise me, especially considering where Jon's bumbling has lead him. Strangely I think it he could do it. They could just herd over all the girl's from Charm School or some other reality show.

I loved your idea for kate's show, Jane, you had me laughing.

As for reconciliation, those kids don't need to go through a phony reconciliation, like they went through a phony wedding vow ceremony & the phony Christmas present of a pair of dogs. These children really don't need anymore phony in their young lives, there's been so much, do they know what is real & what isn't? They're already stuck with a phony mother.

It's too bad the remaining Dionne quints didn't write an open letter of advice to the Gosselin's, like they did with the other family of multiples awhile back, sorry I can't recall their name atm. Even now it would be good. To say in public that Jon did the write thing & to say publicly what it is that kate & TLC are dooming those 6 to if they end up back on TV.

Let's face it, they better than anyone on this planet have the best idea as what will/ can happen to these children, what they are going through right now & all the rest, they've lived it. No one else in this world can claim to know as well as the Dionne's do. It's something both groups have in common.

No, I wouldn't expect kate or TLC to listen to such a public letter, but more of the right people might sit up, take notice & realize that this should not be allowed to be happening. I mean everyone freaks out when they hear of child labour overseas & all rush forward to stamp it out. Where are these people for these 8 children? They shouldn't have to be beaten, dirty or hungry to gain the appropriate attention.

lukebandit said...

it was probably TLC testing the media temperature again. in and out. someone posted the other day that there is going to be a special small cramped space in hell for TLC next to berny madoff.

jon, be strong. you only have 3 months till your contract runs out. i would have things lined up the next day after that contract with TLC runs out. your children need to be in school 5 days a week just for a chance to get caught up. please jon, you went to church before, please rely on your faith. God loves you and is there if you would just simply ask. God carried me through a coma, house foreclosure, no child support for 3 teenage boys, no food, no car, ect., the point is that God provides. all you have to do is ask.
my good friend wrote a book called "Amazing Moments with the Savior", by Kelly Beason. it is a available on Amazon. someone gave it a 5 star review and the review is wonderful. i typed up all the stories for her that were in handwritten form. i really enjoyed doing that for her. the cover of the book is beautiful.
i volunteered to type over 40 stories some had 500 words some 2 to 3K.

KateisMasculine said...

I must say, as much as I dislike Kate, I have to wonder which is worse for the kids. Kate being alone with them and that temper of hers, or TLC following them around with cameras. The reason being, We have seen Kate man handle the kids, give permission to all the helpers to man handle the kids, they have no one to go to for anything. They seem to pretty much care for themselves. Kate completely looses it when they enter her space. So with that being said, I am leaning more toward the Camera crew "witnessing" the events that take place in that big empty house. I don't think Kate is as quick to jerk one of them up in front of the camera man.

Jon and Kate have made more money these past few years than many of us would make in our life time. Still not enough. I don't know if there will ever be enough. She is unable to do anything "fun" with the kids unless a camera crew is there to document it. She is a pretend mom. One who talks the talk but doesn't walk the walk. If TLC is considering picking the show back up, I think the kids might be safer for a while. Not emotionally, but slightly physically. I am not saying that those kids don't have some deep scars already. But these scars can always become deeper. With the show, Kate has to pay some attention to them, pretend to care, listen to them. At least while the camera is rolling. Sadly, I believe this is all they get from her. They seem to know which "mommy" is in front of the camera, and which "mommy" isn't. If this is true, It is so very sad to do this to them now. Young Kids are so very tired when the school year is in. Especially kindergarden? kids. I cannot imagine how demanding this will be on them if it is true. Or if anybody will care. There was an article I read somewhere, Kate talking about her love for shoes. Not the children, their health, or them not being in an unemployment line somewhere, but SHOES!!

Good point.

I remember the letter and though that Yvonne was over reacting. Those babies had parents! This was the USA! They would not allow them to be exploited! THe public would not allow kids to be exploited!

Turns out Yvonne Dionne knew what she was saying.
Jon and Katie SOLD their kids privacy and allowed them to be used to sell merchandise.

The article in the Reading newspaper (I have hard copies) is a review of the leading news from 2009.

I have a question. I've read several comments saying Jon cannot get work due to TLC's injunction. Is that true of ANY work, or just work in show business? Could he go get an IT job or even something like retail, etc. or would that violate his contract as well?

Minka's tail said...

This dating show could be the end of her popularity. Kate is now at her peak because she has "won over" both "hipsters" like the women of the View and has retained much of her Christian core. The hipsters idealize single working moms, and the Christians believe that she was an innocent wife who was cheated on by a creep who didn't read the 10 commandments, particularly the one about adultery. But liberal, cool types and conservative religious types have very different ideas of acceptable dating and sexual practices.

Her behavior on a dating show will alienate at least one group of fans. If she behaves in a way that the religious fans feel is immoral, that should end her Christian publishing and church-begging careers. She won't have to necessarily sleep with the dates, but dressing immodestly, kissing or drinking with them may be enough.

If she puts on the religious act (which is what it is, IMO) and makes a big spectacle of how she can't have sex until she's married, can't do this, that or some other thing, she will annoy her more liberal fan base, who will find her judgmental and didatic and out of mainstream society.

The only way this show can work is if she hates every guy she is set up with, so sex, kissing, etc. never has to come up. Otherwise, she will lose half her fan base no matter what she does.

Of course, she probably will hate every man she's set up with, so be prepared to see a lot of her! ):

I've read that Child Protective Services has gotten involved, at least a well being check, with both Sheen and Tiger's families.

With the police calls, infidelity, p-people chases and alleged child abuse and neglect, WHY hasn't any action been taken to check on these poor kids? It boggles the mind.

PA Woman said...

It will be interesting to see what happens when they begin filming. Many of us are saying that the public is fickle and won't turn in. I disagree. I think because they dominated the news this past summer that people will turn in, just to try and see how the kids are doing. There will be initial high ratings, but they will decline over time.

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

I agree with this. With all the publicity they have developed a new audience of people that never heard of J&K+8 and never turned on TLC. These people are bound to tune in for a couple of episodes. Hopefully they will tire of it quickly and the ratings will drop. I honestly think for TLC to keep the ratings up, they need Jon for some guest appearances. He has been so badly protrayed people will tune in just to see what he does. Kate on the other hand will bore them to death after a few weeks.

Hate to say it but the Kons are addicted to the fame and fortune. Yawn does NOT want it to stop, even though he claims he does. He is going to re-sign and allow the kids to do the show. It was even on one of those entertainment shows last night, and the Dr. on there said fame addiction is as strong as if you have alcohol or drug addiction, you simply crave it and go into withdrawal if you don't get it.
---------------------------
I fear you are completely right here. I believe Rosie O'Donnell has said on her blog that fame is a drug. If memory serves me, Aunt Jodi also as much said on an old radaronline interview that it was unlikely one or both Gosselin parents could step away from the fame (and I assume the money it brings). Practically speaking, with no job prospects for either of the ex-couple, they have eight children...and the money WILL eventually run out that the kids have already made to support themselves. Frankly, I thought this blog would be going away if it wasn't for the little voice inside that was saying, "this isn't over; they'll exploit those kids on TV again because the money's got to come from somewhere." Kate dropped enough hints post-Jon...that she wasn't ready yet for the divorce and she didn't want to see him leave the "driver's seat" or going on and on about how much the kids missed the show and film crew (like we'd actually believe such a thing). Jon was emphatic that there'd be no reconciliation but he probably didn't count on being in this much of a bind (think of the lawyer fees alone). Jon and Kate have no doubt gotten very accustomed to their high-flying lifestyles and don't want to give it up. TLC or the two of them may think that it will make for good TV to see a family reunited but it's too late...people see through the sham and there's been too much negative press. It can't be the sweet story because nobody will believe it's real. Anyway, we'll be right back where we started about child "actors" being exploited on reality TV. Maybe it will finally force a law instead of just awareness but, again (always, AGAIN), the eight Gosselin children are the ones who have to suffer in the interim if they're forced to go back on TV with new/revived episodes of a patched-up family. I wish this trend of reality television had never started but it's like a lava flow from an erupting volcano.

Thank you :)

Overall I know it's not a laughing matter. My heart goes out to those children and I hope they are doing all right and at least getting the affection they need from their nannies and Jon. As I look back on 2009, I am glad that at long last, the Gosselin 8 finally got a break from the intrusive and exploitative cameras, and whether you like Jon or that, that was his doing. He does deserve the credit for that action, no matter his motives.

I read another post that indicated Jon has only 3 months remaining on his contract with TLC. I hope that is accurate. Once that contract expires, let us all hope he never signs another contract with TLC again (or at the very least, not one that gives them access to his children).

Negative or not, people are still replying and therefore shows interests and that she will boost ratings just for her being controversial.

The best thing to do would be to just ignore it. Her publicists are reading those comments and are loving the attention she's getting.

They're also getting a kick out of J&K posts on Radar which receives hundreds of comments while other, real celebrities are just a few.

So, Radaronline is talking about a boxing promotion. I find it hilarious they would even bother to invite Jon. He has an injunction against him that prohibits him from working without their permission. He will never get permission to do anything on television as long as TLC is involved in his life.

EAMYC said
(snipped)I remember the letter and though that Yvonne was over reacting.Those babies had parents! This was the USA! They would not allow them to be exploited! THe public would not allow kids to be exploited!

Turns out Yvonne Dionne knew what she was saying.
Jon and Katie SOLD their kids privacy and allowed them to be used to sell merchandise.
*****************

The Dionne Quintuplets were born in Ontario and taken from their family and exploited by the Canadian government.
However, the issue of exploiting children goes beyond national boundaries. That their parents could exploit the Gosselin 8 is mind boggling.
Children on reality tv needs to be addressed by Congress.

I am sorry if this has been said but, TLC does not have a dating show (as far as I know). Will this make Kate's stupid dating show more appealing to viewers? I honestly hope it crashes and burns...she needs to go away. Enough with her already. Her 15 minutes are long gone.

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

Here is your Amen! on that one, Lisa! Kate G gives off a weird sexual (or, is it, as you say, 'asexual' vibe?). This woman seems to be completely uncomfortable with ANY level of emotional intimacy. It's uncomfortable to watch, actually. Even the times she feigned affection for Jon, with the petting his face like most of us may pet a dog, or the 'wedding dance' at that joke-of-a-vow renewal, absolutely ZERO chemistry, affection, emotional connection was apparent.

And THIS is what is supposed to be the cornerstone of a dating show? My god, how deep IS that barrel TLC is scraping these days?

IF this rumored show has any validity anyway. More likely just invented hype to keep the Gosselin name in the public consciousness until TLC can find some new 'pasture' for their former cash cow to graze.

SPARE US, oh lord. I declare 2010 the year for No Schlock TV (this means YOU, Jon and Kate Gosselin). Farewell, So Long, Adieu, Adios (don't let that door hit you in the behind on your way out)

Bubbles said...

singlealltheway brought up an interesting concept, predicting that in 2010 Kate will have a baby so she can show the world how she copes with "just one" and I am chilled by the thought!

I think it's likely that she's too vain to get pregnant again...let's face it, pregnancy did not become her lol. I hope this is the case. But if Jon doesn't let the kids be filmed, & her "show" flops (which it will) she will need an idea...and Kate plus One More might sound really appealing!

I agree with others who think TLC is stringing Kate along to keep her from siding with Jon. I don't think they'll continue promoting her if the kids aren't allowed to be filmed.

I am still confused about the lawsuit against Jon, because doesn't it name JKIG Inc as the defendant, therefore making Kate a defendant, too?

NothingGood2Come said...

2010 predictions -

Jon will fold and allow the children to be filmed in exchange for TLC to drop the lawsuit and give him a "salary". No big surprise there. The guy is a complete idiot.

Khate's show with the kids will not do as well and gradually fade out of the limelight ensuring that there will be more publicity seeking incidents. Expect to see some Gosselin faces on tabloids during peak media weeks.

The twins are old enough to not be "biddable" for the camera; expect to see their camera time reduced. I think they will start sabotaging any filming efforts about them; thank goodness!

The show will center upon the bad behavior of the tups, seeking an audience that will love to complain about how ill-mannered, rude, and bullying they are and how Khate is a horrible parent. These armchair-parents who chase ambulances, is TLC's new audience.

The cooking show was a blind. Something to keep Khate happy and string her along. If it ever sees the light of day, it will bomb quickly. Khate's cooking skills are about as well developed as those of a Pet Rock.

The media who has been licking Khates' boots will continue to turn and eat their own reality-generated-child. She is losing the darling image because the media outlets not paid by TLC are a bit jealous they didn't get a piece of the $$ pie pay off.

Expect to see more negative press on Khate then ever before. Although a certain part of this will be appreciated by TLC's PR team, it will soon overwhelm it and become so bad that the only place she could get a media role is on the Rock of Love Bus.

I am looking forward to seeing their shows crash and burn. And the tups are getting older all the time and, though bad behavior is as interesting to a jaded television audience as good, there is limit as to what people will stomach from what was once considered a "family friendly" show.

For the Moment? said...

In all the years I watched the show there were two incidents that I remember where she remotely made sexual connotations. One was when Jon was saying he didn't have any talents and Kate turned her back a bit and said well Jon you do have that one talent but I can't really speak of it and Jon blushed. Another was when he took her to a nice dinner with drinks and atmosphere and she said this is nice, VERY nice making eye contact and looking him up and down. It was really strange..more like a man would come on to a woman. But you got the message. As for intimacy, just can't see it...but I do think she leads a double life (as do we all to a point) that we are totally unaware of and may in fact be very aggressive in certain situations.

Tired of the PR said...

I have not heard much about Jon lately and that is a good thing! Maybe Jon has taken some advice from this site and is keeping a low profile.
Good for you, Jon! Trust no one and stay out of the media circus. They are not your friends, no matter how "nice" they may seem.

ToTheMoonAlice said...

Is it just me, or are Jon and Kate so "last year"?

barbee said...

Kate would not get pregnant again because she would NOT get a FREE tummy tuck and it would ruin her tummy and belly button. (oh yeah, they are already ruined). And it's odd that Kate now wanted just '1' baby but had the procedure done at a time when, as a nurse, she knew the chances of very high multiples was very high. She went into the second pregnancy intentionally with the sole purpose of having a litter (which they could NOT afford) but which she had checked into promoting into $$$$$$$$ via television. Now she has decided that the name DIVA fits her and she will do (for her kids) whatever it takes (not so much for her kids) to maintain the standard of living for which she was born (well, not exactly born) to lead. No matter what show premise TLC comes up with, Kate WILL FAIL, she has no talent and now the viewers don't care to see her and by the time Spring comes around no one will still be waiting around for her to bore us any more.

Yippee gosselin free said...

TLC CANNOT cut off Jon's livelihood! LOL! That is silly. The man can work at IT anytime he wants....I have checked the Reading Eagle, and there are several jobs that he is qualified for.

Mr. Gosselin, get a real job. This is the way to stick it to everyone. Go to your Dad's old office and ask for some kind of job. Janitor if you have to. Get a real job. You would raise yourself in the eyes of the public, and your children. Move back to where they are, and fly right!

Didn't your mother ever tell you, "if you lay down with dogs you will get fleas"?...well you are covered in them! Give yourself some "advantage"...take a flea bath...do the right things for a change. Move home, get a job, go back to church, give up the booze cigs and wild women. They certainly did not cause you ANY happiness, did they? Learn something. Don't try and go backwards. The past is gone, but tomorrow is another day, make it right. For your kids. Actually think about them, instead of SAYING you think about them. Be a father they can be proud of. Kids don't need money....they need family. They need their Dad...not some other "male figure"...but YOU! No one else in this world loves you more than your own kids. No one ever will. Why do you run away from that relationship? You are their hero. Who cares what worthless glory hounds think? Skim off the flotsom and you will be happy.

Connie said...

JMO, but I do not think that a woman with eight children, six of whom are under age six, should be thinking about dating anyone. She has motherly duties to the offspring she WILLINGLY brought into the world. Her children should be her number one priority and the focus of her life. With a young brood like that, dating should be the farthest thing from her mind -- at least until the children are grown. I think Kate in a dating show may turn a lot of people off.

Pa Mom Knows said...

"I also hope she is doing research on legal emancipation from her parents..."

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

She will have quite a few years of research ahead of her. PA has very strict laws, and it wouldn't happen here until she's at least 16. Even then she must be able to provide proof of earning a stable income, as well as providing herself with suitable living arrangements. She would also have to stay in school (transfer to the district in which the parents reside).

In addition, both parents have to sign the consent. It seldom happens under PA law. When minors apply at the age of 16 or 17, the process is so long that they often turn 18 before the request is granted. At that time they become "legal adults" anyway!

It is just a matter of time before TLC dumps Kate. She is too high on her cloud of fame right now to realize it but sooner or later (possibly sooner) that cloud will dissolve and the only thing left will be Kate's tears.

Personally, I can't wait.

In one of her interviews she said she did not want to get married again. Then she said later that it would be hard to find someone willing to take ALL of them.

So, she is not interested in dating and does not expect to.

BUT of course she will do it if TLC deems it her show. That should be interesting.

Who would date her if they already know about her?

ihatefrogstoo said...

Baby Mama, dear one, Kate never had any intention of having to get the kids to gymnastics class every week. Security was her pre-packaged excuse to the fans and followers for why her poor children could only go once. The whole thing was just to make an episode. It was just like all the other one off things that they have done. It was to make TV.

Ohio Buckeye said...

I found it obnoxious and rude the way Kate DEMANDED that SHE be allowed to stand nearby as the gym teacher was working with the kids.

No one else's mom was permitted to do so, but K8 DEMANDED it with her usual ride in upon her high horse of control, arrogance, and condescension.

Pretty much all moms consider their own kids special and would like to stand closer to take in the instructions to their kids, but they respect the instructor, the other kids AND other moms, as well as their OWN KIDS, so they do not insist on being treated SPECIAL.

Kate's smug facial smirk while she announced that 'just because of who we are, 'sometimes' (she meant ALWAYS) things have to be different for us'. She uses whatever ploy necessary to get her own way, and personally, I find this unfair and absolutely obnoxious.

Kate Gosselin may be one of THE MOST insensitive and arrogant people I've ever had the misfortune to observe.

My sympathies to that poor gym instructor, who received ZERO respect from Kate Gosselin, which is Kate's usual treatment of all others.

Kate models very poor behavior for her kids by always demanding special treatment. Good luck with 8 ENTITLED and arrogant teens, Katie I.

paths said...

I usually agree with Ohio Buckeye's every word, but I think Kate staying for gymnastics had to do with "working minor" regulations. An appointed guardian needs to be on site. Of course Kate's smug, entitled remarks to the instructor are typical of her behavior from the beginning of the show (and before according to reports). The saddest part of all is that those children probably never went back to gymnastics and anyone who attends the next Gosselin yard will have 3 boys 3 girls gymnastic outfits used only once to choose from. What is TLC trying to sell the public with Kate as a personality?

OK, let's say that's true, and the reason Kate stayed. So why would Baby Mama tell us the FACT that it was for "security" reasons, and not for legal necessity? It's either FACT or it's fiction, and BM seemed to think she knew the FACT of the matter.

No, I'm still leaning toward Kate wanting to be on camera with her kids. After all, what would an episode of Just the Kids be?

Then again, maybe, just maybe, the security thing was that the other Moms in the waiting lounge would have ripped her to shreds, so she had to be out of there.

Vanessa said...

I agree with Ohio and paths.
The point is that TLC didn't edit her remarks. It's unfortunate that all they have/had to work with is her Royal Hiney's continual obnoxious self.

Between the 6 (or even 8) of them they could have filled a block of class time themselves. She always went on "Who are we to say no, if we don't get out, then we'll just sit here and stare at the walls"
She only made an effort in taking those kids ANYWHERE when it catered to her and her whims.

THEY BOTH DON'T WORK, can they not between the two of them (God forbid TOGETHER) take those kids to a weekly gymnastics class?
Or any other extra curricular activity for that matter?
When they've got their entourage they seem to travel hither, tither and yon.

Ohio Buckeye said...

Paths, THANK YOU for the compliment! I really appreciate reading that!

I did not take exception to Kate's presence at the gym.

What bothered me was that she insisted on staying right down next to the instructor, stating she 'had to hear what is being said' by the instructor.

To have hung out on the sidelines, I'd have understood.

To insist on preferential treatment by demanding to stand within an arm's length of her kids' lesson was rude IMO.

Just typical Kate Gosselin.
Ugh.

If it is true that they never wnet back to gymnastics or do any other extra activity eg musci , karate, I have to ask myself- What do these kids DO all day long.

Do they just have meals and then loads of unstructured play and tv watching.

No wonder they cry and fight.

Thank goodness for 3 day school.

This has probably already been posted and off topic but Octomom's doctor is being charged with gross negligence for implanting so many embryos in her without getting a psychiatric examination.

Bubbles said...

I must admit, I only have half as many children as Kate - a mere 4 of them - but I have enrolled my 2 youngest children in both tumbling & soccer for the next 8-10 weeks or so. I will be transporting them without bodyguards or any other "security" measures besides booster seats & seat belts. Parents are not even allowed in the classroom for tumbling until the last class so I will not be able to hear every word the instructor says. I'm beginning to feel nervous and second guess myself...maybe it would be better to cancel the classes so my darlings' safety is not compromised, not to mention the loss of motherly control!

Oh no...what if they are offered a snack at the class and eat more than their carefully allotted calorie allowance?!

Seriously, though, it is truly sad that the kids only got to go once, if that really is the case. If TLC really had any sense (which we all know they don't) they would identify a unique talent in each child & provide training. People would be really interested in seeing them learn new skills.

Aunt Chris said...

"Do they just have meals and then loads of unstructured play and tv watching."

Not to be arguemenative, but when I was little, all we had was unstructured play time. It's how you build imagination, and cooperation and sharing.

Can't See Sheep said...

If your so called fame, limits what your children are allowed to do (huge eye roll) then there is a problem. Personally I don't think it's the fame, I think it's a combination of these mean old places won't let her camera crews in, for blindingly obvious reasons, so the kids are not allowed to go to go. I think it is this combined with the nuttiness she used to exhibit frequently when she didn't deal with things well & didn't attempt to deal with them well.

Someone mentioned the Gosselins not being able to go to a graduation. Why not? There are many movie starts that attend the graduations of their children & there are no incidents. There are also those that go see their kids school plays & games, no incidents.

Rather than, no, you can't play football because it makes mommy nervous & she doesn't know how to deal with it, it's no, you can't play football because we're too famous. I'm sure she'd try to stand right next to her child on the field & attempt to keep them from being tackled. I can see her out there now, threating the other football players with her spoon when they get too close.

Talk about an easy out, we're too famous, I'll have to remember that one & see if it works. My guess is it stuns people with confusion as they try to figure out who you are, or in kate's case they marvel at the overwhelming arrogance. It's not like everyone watched the show, talk about a detach from reality.

I've said it before, I'll say it again, this woman is not fit to make decisions for these children. As long as these children are with her, they will suffer because of her, there is much of life they will not get to experience, they will only know the things she is interested in & she's so damn boring & vacuous!

I'm all for sitting around, sipping coffee or tea or whatever & having a conversation, but she can't even do that. It'd be like listening to a stuck record (whoops my age is showing), it'd be over & over again, umm...ummm...umm. I'd be so tempted to give her one of those V8 smacks to the forehead to see if you can get her unstuck.

These kids really need to divorce themselves from kate & then take resumes for loving parents. I know that freaks people out, but I seriously think these kids would be better off without their biological parents. Yes, I believe that adoptive parents would benefit them far more. I believe they would get the love & attention that every child should get, because they're certainly not getting it now, kate's love comes with conditions.

I think Kate staying for gymnastics had to do with "working minor" regulations. An appointed guardian needs to be on site.

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

Two comments:

(1) Isn't it TLC's assertion that the kids are NOT "working"?

(2) For legally working minors, a guardian needs to be "on site" -- NOT "on camera." Kate was on the floor because she's an attention whore who thinks the rules of the world do not apply to her -- she and her eight little dollar signs are too special-ish to have to abide by the rules of the commoners.

silimom said...

What do these kids DO all day long?

****
(my times may be off here so feel free to correct me)
They get up at 5:30 and head off to school by 6:30 a.m.

They have an hour bus ride to school.

School lets out and then they have to head back on the bus. I believe they get home around 3:30 or 4:00

They probably get in the door at 4:30. The "not the nannies" may give them a snack and then I'm sure they have to start homework around 5:00 p.m.. That probably takes them until 6:00 and then it's dinner and then baths and then bed by 7:30 p.m.

Cara and Mady may get to stay up until 8:30, but I'm not sure knowing Kate.

That schedule leaves no time for any off campus after school recreational activities. Jon mentioned at one point that Cara and Mady play Lacrosse at school, but I'm not sure if that's simply a unit in their PE program or if they're actually on a school team.

Kate could take them to classes on Saturdays but that's Jon's time with them (unless the visitation schedule changed since the final divorce decree) so it would be up to him to take them to activities etc. which I don't think would happen, frankly. More kudos to him if he did it. His kids would love it and it would be a great way to show up Kate (Hmmm, Kate. I don't seem to have a problem taking them on outings etc., and I don't even have help). However, he's too busy playing teenager with Hailey.

Kate could also take them to classes on their days off from school, since if memory serves they only go three days a week? Other stars much more famous and popular than her manage to get their kids to horse back riding lessons, music lessons, dance lessons, gymnastics, art classes, etc. Just look at Reese Witherspoon (whom I think is an awesome mom, at least what I see publicly).

Bottom line, Kate spends maybe 3 hours a day with her kids between waking and sleeping. So much for being the "hands on mom" she claims to be (and sorry to her fans, but its more often than not that the nannies drop off and pick up the kids at the school bus, so that time doesn't count).

Cesca said...

I am just wondering how Kate is paying her nannies' salaries right now if TLC/Jon/whatever ended the show. Anyone know? She seems way too cheap and selfish to pay them out of her *savings* or *nest egg.*

laura t said...

Past and present USA PRESIDENTS' children participate in extra activities.
Yet the Gosselins (who ahve non working parents/nannys/bodyguard) can never ever go back to gymnastics?


Anyone remember Kate and the kids crowded around the van while Katie "looked" for her keys.

oh please!!

Bubbles said...

Cesca: I have absolutely nothing to back this up, but I'm assuming that TLC is probably still paying her and/or paying her staff. Technically she's still their employee under the J&K+8 contract, and there must also be a new contract for the new show. She could be getting advances on that contract.

can't be true unless things changed. When she went to the ranch with the boys she left them there with strangers and went out shooting. When she went places with Jon the kids were shown at Aunt Jodi's without the parents and she was not the legal guardian.

lifeoriley said...

The whole gymnastics situation does not add up--I agree with other posters who've said it sounds like a convenient excuse for Kate to not have to bother with it.
Kate, as I recall, did not stay with her children when they had ski lessons in Utah--outside in an "unsecured" location. Jon and Beth's daughter took them there, but then Jon went off snowboarding.

Also, as someone already stated, why can't the tups be in a private gymnastics class? There's six of them, anyway.
Or, just let the ones who are truly interested go to the gym.
Kate, the "superom" seems to have time enough to go tanning, get her nails done, get her hair done, go shopping, etc., but can't manage a gymnastics class for her kids. Go figure.

acertaingirl said...

She's Baaaack!!! Ms. Kate is on the latest cover of People rag mag due out Friday. It was covered in today's USA Today. I didn't recognize her, according to the blurb, she spent 20 hours sitting for long blond HAIR EXTENSIONS!!!

The transformation is ON, GWoP'ers, let's see what "happens" next.

I'm disgusted, she just won't go away.

Cesca said...

Bubbles: That has to be the case, right? She's not earning any income right now ( that we know of I guess) and there is no way she would be paying them out of her savings. I honestly think she'd prefer not to have help than to pay them out of her savings. I have five kids and I don't even understand why the heck you would need help when all eight are in school full time?!?!

For the Moment? said...

The former cocktail waittress/not a nanny (that we just saw taking care of the kids a short while back) is saying that the kids are having trouble. They are confused about the divorce and truly miss the film crew. Is this not the same person who had sex with Jon 9 times while she was babysitting and the kids were "in bed." Do they think that having this particular third party talk about how much the kids miss the film crew gives that bizarre statement legitimacy. If the kids miss the film crew it is because their mother hammers it home to them at every opportunity that they are no longer working and can't go anywhere ever again and she can't pay her bills. Didn't she just say on one of her interviews that the film crew was in rotation and they never knew who they were going to get (kinda like Steve was in rotation maybe?).

CountMeOut said...

May I ask:

Did anyone ever actually say that the kids don't go to gymnastics for security reasons? Can you tell me where that quote would be found?

I think it would be difficult to take that many kids to extra-curricular things on weeknights (they get home late I think, and at my house, there is sure a lot to do between getting home and going to bed with only 2 kids).

But I don't understand why they don't play soccer or something on the weekends. Doesn't EVERY KID you ever met between the ages of 5 and 9 play soccer?? LOL!

she's..um..ruined said...

There was also the episode when then twins went to cooking class-Khate stayed home, I think Jon was at work.

"can't be true unless things changed. When she went to the ranch with the boys she left them there with strangers and went out shooting. When she went places with Jon the kids were shown at Aunt Jodi's without the parents and she was not the legal guardian."

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

My thoughts. I know the place. I would not feel comfortable leaving eight kids, six of whom are only four, running around there without parental supervision. Certainly the instructors are SUPPOSED to watch them (they don't always!) but what if some had to use the bathroom, or some just simply wandered off? She didn't know who was there, and in this day and age with abductions, kidnappings, whatever, she may have worried if they were going to be safe. I would have felt the same way.

You can't compare Aunt Jodi's to a public gym. At a dude ranch, it was a bit different...it was basically a secure, confined environment, although I wouldn't have done it even there.

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

Those pics from a week or so ago, the ones with Kate and the other woman walking in the parking lot,when it was really windy? enlarge the pic, they have on the same necklace....could this be a sister?

Minka's tail said...

It's pretty obvious that Kate just wanted to be on camera when she wouldn't leave the gymnastics room. By that time, the show was basically a tryout for her spinoff show. The kids weren't on much and we all know about Jon. It was just her yapping and cackling for thirty minutes.

As for them discontinuing the gymnastics, they don't need those lessons! Duh! They are already famous. They don't need to be in the Olympics to bring glory onto their mother.

Kate is the luckiest stage mother alive. She didn't have to arrange gigs and rehearse dance steps like Joe Jackson, or stand on a hot golfcourse like Earl Woods. She didn't have to move from Texas to Delaware to Michigan like Mrs. Lipinski, or sell her Chinese restaurant like Mr. Kwan. She didn't even have to buy expensive gowns like the toddlers and tiara moms.

No, Kate is recognized by Baby Mama and her stable of sheeple as being a wonderful mom, and her kids didn't even need to accomplish anything. In fact, Kate didn't even need to make the normal sacrifices most average parents make, much less the stage parents. She and her kids became famous because they were allowed to be filmed going on vacations and getting free gifts, most of which benefitted the parents as well as the kids. She didn't need to buy half the stuff normal parents buy. All this because her uterus grew really large and she lay in bed for a few months.

So lessons? Please! Her family is so special they transcend lessons. They are famous already.

What's that you're saying? Kids sometimes take lessons to learn skills and sportsmanship? Parents give kids lessons not to make money but for enjoyment? Huh? I can't hear you, there's a buzzing in my earpiece. I have to go arrange it under my hair!

Warning!!: The Society for responsible caring parents would like to warn this picture may cause gagging, throwing up in the mouth, and a almost irresistable urge to punch your computer screen.

No matter what she does to her appearance, nothing will make her look any better, as her ugliness comes from the inside. I don't know which picture is worse, this one or the horse ones on jibberjabbers page.

Some one needs to remove these children from khates "care".

InShock said...

OMG Please Please tell me the People cover with Kate on it with new hair extensions is one big joke. It has to be a joke, right? She looks horrible. Is she insane? She is so desperate she will do anything to make her look softer and more human but it will just not work. I guess she reads the blogs where people think she is too butchy and severe. She doesn't realize her personality is the problem, not the hair.

Did anyone see the People cover? Is this for real? Kate with superlong blonde hair extensions? She looks, to but it mildly, like a street walker. (And I know that's supermean. But it looks so nasty.)

I cannot tell if this People cover is for real (Google Kate and see for yourself)...but I thought it was worth discussing.

Laurie said...

I haven't seen this posted yet (may be in the queue) but here's the latest from MSNBC:
**********
Jon and Kate Gosselin’s eight children are no longer being taped by reality-show crews, but reports that they’re having a difficult time are making it into the press regardless. The children’s former nanny Stephanie Santoro is the source of recent news about the kids. She told Life & Style that the children are confused by the divorce and truly miss having cameras around. Cara, one of the couple’s 9-year-old twins, “used to sit and cry to me that she didn’t understand and thought (the divorce) was her fault,” Santoro told the magazine. “I would always tell her, ‘It’s not your fault, it’s just something that happened. Mommy and Daddy will tell you more.’ ” Kate did not immediately remove her wedding ring, but when she did, the kids quickly noticed, according to Santoro. “The kids immediately asked, ‘Where’s your ring?’ So she replaced it with another one,” Santoro said. The children are also coping with the loss of the “Jon & Kate Plus 8” crew. Filming stopped in early October when Jon posted “no trespassing” signs on the family’s property and demanded production be shut down. “Kate says the kids miss the crew,” said Santoro. “They grew up around them and loved interacting with the crew. I’m sure the kids are devastated.”
****************

Wasn't she only a babysitter for a couple of days as she was supposedly one of Jon's flings and kHate wasn't happy with her? As we've speculated, she was (is) on the TLC payroll. I guess anything to keep them in the news and seemingly relevent. You know what they say - out of sight, out of mind!

silimom said...

http://www.theinsider.com/news/3141912_Do_You_Think_Kate_Gosselin_s_Makeover_Was_For_Revenge

Check out Kate's new look. Also, given that it's a People article, which is Kate's PR mag of choice, and that the blurb on the cover, I think they're going ahead with focusing on a show all about Kate modeled after Denise Richard's show "It's Complicated". The kids will appear in it, but won't be focused on as much as they were the last time. It will truly be about Kate looking for work (talk shows, etc.), going on vacations with her BFF Jamie and going on dates.

So, predictions anyone? What do you think Kate's new show will be about and how long do you think it will last?

Feeling Sorry for the 8 Kids said...

ErinKate said...

Give Jon's publicist a cookie for setting him up with Danielle from the Housewives. I guess Jack the Ripper was unavailable.

I hope TLC/Jon Gosselin is giving that publicist a big, fat raise for continuing to find ways to keep Jon in the spotlight as the "bad guy" while keeping Kate on covers as the "good guy" who is starting over and only doing good. At some point soon Jon will have an epiphany and return to Kate and his kids only to rejoin the TLC family and start churning out new episodes of Jon and Kate Plus 8. This was the plan all along. Jon will hit rock bottom and Kate (and her new show) will save his aSS when she takes him back because she still loves "the old Jon". Then they will write a book about everything and live happily ever after.

Oh no she didn't! She actually paid for a mullet. It looks like something from a SNL skit. Kate's extensions must be a joke.

For the Moment? said...

I'm glad to see that Kate as a poor pitiful single mom has 20 hours to sit and get hair extensions done..much less the cost. I wonder if she understands that these things would not come up if she had not gone on national TV crying and begging that she could not pay her bills, being the struggling single mom that she is and that mean ole ex of hers taking all the money. She sure made a quick turnaround as soon as that divorce went through. She does look softer though that is for sure. I would like to see it in its natural state and not windblown. I predict that she will very soon start dating, or that maybe Steve will soon file for a divorce.

Irene said...

Well, Kate and her new Brittney Spears do! Completely fake, manufactured, phoney and so Kate!

You know she is something. Cares so much about the kids that she uses their money to get a hairdo that will require hours of attention. Way to take another for your kids Kate.

Fake Kate, Won't Kate, Dumb Kate, Desperate Kate, Lazy Kate, Grifter Kate, Ho-Kate......LOL this is fun Kate!

JaxMom said...

The hair extensions... and the hair color...are not flattering. I guess it was the only way to get on the cover.

I wonder if Kate accepts any (even just a smidgen) of responsibility for her kids' troubles. Nah... didn't think so.

yeaisaidthat said...

You can put hair extensions on a pig and it's still a pig.

I predicted some time ago on this very blog that Kate will soon be sporting hair extensions in an attempt to re market herself. The mother of eight, who exploited her children for fame and a a lifestyle she could not otherwise afford can now add the cost of monthly hair weave maintainance to the family budget. Possum head hair or desginer hair weave. Still the same old talentless, child exploiting Kate Krieder!

I never really liked Kate old hairdo, but it was "her". The part I did not care for was the spiky back of her head. The hair length right below her chin was flattering to her face.
I click on the link that should the people cover, and I didn't recognize Kate. Those extensions look fake and make her look kind of trashy. I know alot of stars have extensions, maybe Kate should go to Carie Underwood's stylist. Her hair with or with extensions look great!

MomIAm said...

When the ratings get low enough, when people stop buying magazines with Gosselin family pictures on the front, and when people stop clicking on articles, pictures or gossip sites on the internet that is when TLC and the gossips will drop the Gosselins. It all depends on audience interest - any audience interest.

If the audience doesn't tune in, there is no market.

Even if you don't like them, but continue to read about them on the internet, your "clicks" are just like money in the bank for them. Cha Ching!

What the WHAT???!! I was SO enjoying making it through the grocery without that harpy's face staring at me from all the tabloids, and now she's back? And with hair extensions yet?

Good lord, woman, give it up.

I find the concept of K8 dating hilarious. WHO in their RIGHT MIND would want to have anything to do with this narcisstic nutjob??

Lordybe, let the SCRIPTING begin. Prepare, America, to be told yet again that TLC is bringing us more 'reality' in the spring.

Yes, friends and neighbors, more 'reality' starring AMERICA'S 'most popular (no WAIT, Peoria isn't buying the 'popular' thing...), 'busiest' (NO, wait, they're on to us - her kids are in school much of the day...), 'most beauti...' (no, forget it, no one will ever buy this one), ok, I've got it: most DESPERATE and DELUDED Mom.

Fun viewing for the whole fam.

Undeniably the worst.hair.ever. I would love to know who put those extensions in, they are truly laughable!! (I'm a hairstylist, I know...) It's gross hair, and any normal person wouldn't leave the salon looking like that. The short hair was much better, even as hideous as it was!

Jane in California said...

That picture of Kate with extensions is hilarious! She could give lessons in how to look like a desperate freak. Perhaps she took lessons from Kathy Griffin???

You can't turn a sow's ear into a silk purse, no matter how hard you try. But it sure is fun to watch her and TLC try - he he!

My foremost prediction for any new show that showcases Kate is that it will be boring and scripted up the ying yang. I'm hoping there will be a lot of awkward interactions between Kate and humans. Hopefully, no humans will be hurt during the production of any Katezilla show.

Jane in California said...

I have also heard that hair extensions can begin to stink after awhile. Anyone know if that's true.

Kate is unintentionally hilarious. I can hardly wait for her next stunt. Will she begin going Michael Jackson on herself? Will there soon be a board game available, called "Pin the Hair on the Kate"?

Can't See Sheep said...

What a trollop. That'll look so lovely with the clothes she wears. Oh boy, kate now mimicking paris hilton. She really does need to grow up. I'm not saying get out the granny clothes, but geez, there are ways of looking good without dressing far younger than your age. All it ends up looking like is an older woman trying to relive her teenage years, obviously she's been listening to Jon. She's got 8, count 'em 8 kids, time to think like an adult. She looks like trash. The only good thing I can say is her face looks thinner, but then I don't know if that's because of the hair or the airbrush artist.

Well, kate's as butch as Brett Michaels. They're trying to soften her appearance, good luck, because it'll all disappear the moment she opens her mouth. Why can't this vile creature just vanish. Someone get those kids a set of real parents, get them away from this shaggy headed loon. It's so plain that all these kids ever were to her was a stepping stone, a foot in the door & no matter how many times you slam the door that damnable foot still seems to be there. I'd like to equate her staying power with intelligence & willpower, but I can't. There's a tremendous difference between willpower & stubbornness.

Wonder if BM will get extensions now?

PR in PA said...

OMG! What's up with Kate's new look???? She's such a wannabe. On the cover of People AGAIN! Really..do most people care??

Jenny said...

How in the world does Kate rate being the top story on the cover of People magazine over Tiger Wood's wife, Elin, who is also on the cover but in a much smaller photo. Somehow the fix has got to be in for People to drag Kate out of moth balls yet again! The overwhelming reason apparently is...new hair? What a reach THAT is...give me a break! First of all the hair looks awful...whoever okayed that look needs to get out of the business. And secondly, a new hairdo on the outside in no way changes what's on the inside and those of us who were fans of J&K +8 from the beginning know what's on the inside...so they've got to be counting on a bunch of new folks who aren't familiar with the real Kate to jump on the bandwagon.

All this new publicity will only serve to inflate her already huge ego...as in, look at me, I'm an even bigger star than Elin Nordegren. Oh my gosh, the woman keeps being thrust into the limelight, is there no end to their efforts to make her a bonified star?!! Talk about scraping the bottom of the barrel. They need to stop force feeding this person to the public...but as we all know, women between say 18 - 35 are a huge...and profitable...demographic in this country and I'm sure that's who People, TLC and any advertisers will be pitching to. Once again, it all comes down to making money...sickening.

readerlady said...

I keep seeing references to a graduation that the kids supposedly couldn't attend because they are "too famous". What graduation? When did any of the kids graduate? The twins are in 3rd grade and the tups in pre-K.

Re Khate with extentions. UGHH!! is right. She looks awful. And it took 20 hours? Who took care of the kids that "I do everything for" during that time? I'm sure that 20 hours was all for the kids (maybe they enjoyed the reprieve from Mommy Dearest LOL).

The POTUS manages to attend his daughters' soccer games. Does Khate think she is more famous, her kids deserving of more security? Give me a break. I feel so sorry for those kids, who are denied one of the basics of childhood - a normal life. Of course, participation in sports isn't required for a normal life - not all kids enjoy or are good at - athletics, but I'm sure they each have something they'd like to participate in and aren't allowed because mommy can't be bothered.

One question:

Did a TLC crew film Kate getting the extensions or film any of the discussion, before or after, as to her reasons for getting extensions?

For a woman who complained and cried about being hounded by a couple of tabloid photographers it's too hilarious that she is once again on People saying "Look at me! Look at me!" Kate Gosselin, along with TLC, are frighteningly desperate.

Thankfully, the children are no longer being filmed - I hope.

Will there soon be a board game available, called "Pin the Hair on the Kate"?

OMG!!! Hilarious!!

Bonnie said...

They must have also done something to her make-up because her face does look softer.

Totally agree with whomever said she looked like Brett Michaels.

Where is she going to find the time to maintain those nasty extensions? Why couldn't she like normal people just grow her own?

Oh that's right, she's famous!

A pig is still a pig said...

I think the weave and the rest of the picture except Kate's face was all photoshopped. None of the pictures of Kate out and about in the last month or two have shown her with long hair. That or it was a bad wig. I think they just stuck Kate's face in an already existing picture of someone else.

JenTru said...

The hair. Oh. My. God. Bret Michaels is right on the money. Thank you People, I desperately needed that laugh today!

As a side note, I actually, really and truly cancelled my People subscription because of their love affair with Khate. I feel really good about it!

Tyra said...

Don't hair extensions cost 2-3 thousand dollars and upwards? Think how many carrots, yogurt and grapes Kate could afford for that.

ToTheMoonAlice said...

Ya gotta admit it, folks...Kate will do anything for publicity, and how many times do we get a good laugh out of it? The answer is many, many, many times...and the REAL laugh is on Kate, because she's so totally clueless!

BarbMae said...

Kate sitting for 20 hours?? No way. If she sat there for 20 hours those extensions should have looked a hell of alot better than what they do. What a stringy mess. Why can't they just go away. Now that Kate is on People, Jon will have to pull some half-a**ed stunt. I do miss seeing pics of the kids, but they are better off. TLC just keeps hitting new lows w/their new programming and old.... I was wishing for a Gosselin-free 2010 but here we go again......

Huh said...

Jenny said...
"How in the world does Kate rate being the top story on the cover of People magazine over Tiger Wood's wife, Elin, who is also on the cover but in a much smaller photo. Somehow the fix has got to be in for People to drag Kate out of moth balls yet again!"

*********

I was wondering the exact thing myself, but then it occured to me: Elin has class and wouldn't pose for the cover. Kate is always willing to jump in the spotlight, no matter how foolish it makes her look.

Jon and Kate really should take a lesson from Tiger and Elin. Their situation was a much bigger story than the Gosselins ever were, but they were smart enough to hide away from the media coverage and let it die down. Tiger and Elin's kids will never have to someday read the interviews their parents gave bashing each other. At least there's a shred of dignity there. It's sad the Gosselin kids weren't so fortunate.

Andrea and Rob said...

Oh good LORD - Kate's hair is HIDEOUS!!! I can't believe what a wanked out 'do the stylist gave her!! Seriously - I'm not sure WHAT hair would look good on her, but that definitely is NOT it. YIKES!

The hair sucks said...

Of course Kate's new hair is tied to TLC, the man who did her hair Anne Hathaway's and Angelina Jolie's former stylist is appearing on the TLC show What Not to Wear. They are all in bed together that's for sure!

safetytrain said...

I'm sorry but where does an unemployed single-mother of eight small children find the time and resources to get hair extensions?

Hippie Chick said...

Oh, and I didn't realize that Kate changing her look was newsworthy. Seriously People? She is not a star. People that actually make movies, record songs, fight for our country, go to work everyday, be parents to children, make an honest living, etc are the real stars. It is so beyond comprehension. I don't get it. And again, new spin on a mullet!!

notsurprised said...

Fake 'reality show', fake wedding vows, fake 'victim', fake boobs, fake tan, fake nails, fake hair etc... and the Kate Gosselin theme continues.

oh no! 1st issue of Sheeple magazine reveal J&K +8 to continue...

tracystar said...

The stylist from TLC's "What Not to Wear" did her extensions. Remember that episode where Jon took Kate shopping and she said she should be on WNTW. Maybe she's gonna be on it and get a"makeover" Their new season starts Friday :(

PutASockInIt said...

Alf with extensions. I'm going blind. yuk

Wow, almost didn't recognize Katie Irene.

I guess those extensions are "for the kids" too, huh?

I thought only GOPOSHGO could make intake fluids come out of my nose, but you are running a very close second.
Dontcha know new hairstyles are ALWAYS for the kids when your trolling for a new baby daddy???

For the Moment? said...

I saw someone's post (sorry can't find it) about her and BFF wearing the same necklace and went and looked and indeed they are. I guess that answers the question about who gave her the necklace and why she never takes it off even for interviews and if she wears other jewelry. Wonder who bought who's. They truly are really, really best friends forever, like in HS? Kinda strange.

Laurie said...

I guess TLC forgot to call the paps so that they could get a picture of kHate going in to the salon and coming out a "new woman". I don't think that it's a very good weave and can only hope that it's photoshopped by TLC to see if her "adoring" public will accept the new look. I don't think that the comments were very complimentary though.

Eat your vegetables said...

I need to apologize for all of the grammatical errors in my earlier post. In my haste, and (in between the chuckles over the new do), I forgot to congratulate you on your 10 million+ hits. It's been a few months since I've read the blog. It was nice being in Gosselin detox over the holidays. They tried to tempt me with headlines about Hailey, the apartment scandal, and even the Kate needs a date story(good grief). I remained strong. Not one click. Until today. After seeing that photo of Fabio-ish Kate (Is I can't Believe it's Not Butter in need of a spokes-hag??) Like Kate to a photo op, I came running. Kudos TLC. You have become so transparent. Using Kates hair for publicity had to be a desperate, last resort. It is the one thing that seems to get people talking Gosselin. It makes no difference to me how Goldilocks makes a living, but the thought of the kids being dragged back on tv, and having their mother air their feelings for personal gains makes me sick to my stomach. They have no protection??? What happened to the Gloria Allred intervention? I will not give one click to any link Gosselin, though I will continue to read here, and cheer on your efforts to help keep these kids from footing the bill for mommys new dreads.

Diatribes of the Katan:

Now STOP! folks.

You know you ALL are just jealous!!!


You wish for instance that YOU!could became a ****STAR**.

And yeah, I got some plastic surgery. Jealous wenches, you just wish YOU could pimp out your kids, get free plastic surgery and make some bucks, get free trips, dress like the DIVA that I AM (all hail the TATA"S) and garner all the attention of the sheeples across the globe.

JEALOUS WENCHES.

And all you women, tired of your boring, commited husbands;

HA HA HA you WISH you had a Ms. GREY FOX like I have that follows me here, there, and everywhere just to make sure I don't piss off the masses with my self righteous self (umm remember I WAS ON BEDREST) HA HA HA HA

Kids... what kids... You mean little cattle on the farm that I milk on a regular basis. Don't YOU know, kids are there for that purpose. Pishahhh all this and that kids are a blessing.. they are MONEYMAKERS. All for MY EGO!! (STAR STAR STAR, DANCING WITH THE STARS STAR)

And I hear all you are jealous of my Ta Ta's. You only WISH you could pimp those kids out for a nice perky pair. SHUT UP JOEL, I'M BLOGGING RIGHT NOW.
DAMN KIDS.

At least I got a tummy tuck and new pair of Chi Chi's out of their sorry butts.

So after all this crap about my nation wide trendsetting possum doo, your gonna put me through the wringer about my cheesey synthethic extensions???

Well let me tell YOU something, you GWOPer's from hell, I will show you something. After all didn't you all say I needed a new hairstyle... huh...huh.

To hell with you, my man Bret is calling me. Hang on, gotta get a knife for castration SHUT THE HELL UP BRET- CAN YOU NOT BREATHE SO FLIPPIN LOUD?????? .. you know how these men are. Have to keep them in line.

I WILL find my prince charming, you know the one who has always wanted to be eunuch.

So tell hell with all of you.

Anonymous said...

Wow.

The hair is just awful. Not because it's fake, or extensions, but the picture itself makes her look like she's wearing a five dollar wig.

I also like how they call it "Jon's drama," because she doesn't create drama at all... no, never.

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

Something must be wrong with me. I think she looks a lot better. Of course I hated her last style so much, anything would look good to me compared to that mess!

On another note, I was just on a couple of sites where people were talking about her hair. It amazes me how people can change Kates new hair into anti-Jon comments...."Jon should be eating his heart out since he loves long hair....he is getting worse looking with the bad haircuts and weight, while Kate gets better". Huh? Do you like Kates hair or not, comment and move on!

karma train said...

It's the real deal, folks. It's on people's website. hair extensions.
what will tlc think of next. HAHAHAHAHAHAHHA

Maybe we'll be treated to Kate doing a round on "Rock of Love" (quick! pass me the barf bucket!)

"Rock of Love" is barf worthy in and of itself, but adding The Great Kate would DEFINITELY make that show the pinnacle of the crap pile.)

Kate Wait???? When have we EVER seen a particle of patience from The Grand One?
