Is it possible for Jon to be single for longer than a day? I mean seriously!

Hard to Keep Loving Jon said...

I'm an elementary school teacher, but long before I was a teacher I was a parent. I sacrificed a great deal to keep my children in private school when I was a single parent w/a dead beat dad.
HOWEVER, I would have never allowed media and Miss Media Ho to bring such publicity to my children or their school.

Miss Media Ho claims that her children are on scholarships??????
Why? --creativity? talent? brainpower? (Rather doubt that characteristic runs in the family.)
The tups are slightly developmentally delayed and are in Pre-K. Does this require a private school and an HOUR to get there and back on the bus? I don't think so. They could easily be sent to a local public school..... to play "catch up" that Can Do Khate forgot to do for the past few years.
Did we ever see Miss Media Ho reading to any of the children? Did we ever see a stack of books like I see at my 18 month old grandson's house?

I refuse to believe this site is full of hateful bloggers. Instead. we are angry that the children are not given the nuturing they deserve.

Granted my inner city classroom might be chaotic at times during the day, but when I tutor my most needy little group of 8 after school ----it's joyous, peaceful, and happy. It's my special, special time of day! (Trust me, these are NOT always the best behaved third graders!) Don't you dare tell me she can't work with a group of six!

And I do so love Jibber's link to the video of a loving Jon! Thank you.

She has no shame said...

How can Kate possibly have a stupid TV about whatever when there are people dying in Haiti? It just won't sit well with the viewing public to watch her get freebies and hair extensions and say "her kids deserve it" etc etc etc in light of the recent events.

woodenspoon said...

You wanna know what's scary? EVEN when Kate KNOWS the cameras are taking her picture, she still can't help herself from putting her hand over Collins mouth and yelling at him, grabbing him viciously by the arm to pull him into the van. Or like on that morning show where she pinched Alexis arm to have her shut up during her interview. She just can't help but let out a wee bit of aggression. Can you only imagine what goes on behind closed doors?

Gimme Gimme said...

I watched the believe it or not video. Jon is a great dad! I would love to see that posted here. It was very well done. Thanks to whoever is responsible.

I think I saw on the closed post where someone said that Kate probably got on the bus because the kids were "asleep?"

More likely to prolong the staged "loving" moment coincidentally captured on video and posted on the TLC outlet ROL, which I refuse to watch. I don't have to, I saw the photos. I do love to see the kids smile though even it is fake. Such a stark difference between those smiles and hugs as opposed to the ones of the kids lighting up when they see their dad.

Mommie dearest is a fool for tearing her family apart like that. We should have seen it coming as it is clear that she has no family values whatsoever.

KatyKat said...

That so sugary site just creeps me out. I would be horrified if there were so many pics of my children all over the internet. To know that someone is constantly lurking around my kids would be really disturbing, and then distributing the pics so that every pervert in the world can view them would drive me insane.

'woodenspoon said...

I remember Jon saying during an episode that there was a lot of tension on the house. I thought that was strange as he and Kate were the only ones that could generate and also stop it.

Maybe there is a good reason for the blank/shocked/lost look seen on their faces sometimes- they were probaly scared or stressed.

Very well said. This show taught me how scripted tv really is. It opened my eyes and i have to admit Im sort of bored sitting in front of it. I could be doing lots of other things-reading exercising, talking to someone, studying, a hobby.

This show also showed me how much society thrives on material stuff, celebrity, gossip. Who cares who wore some over priced outift!

Video of Kate putting the kids on the bus.
----------
ROL rants about Jon. How forgetful they are there were pictures of Jon actually playing with the kids this past week. What is forgotten is (and not publicized) is when Jon is home he is with the kids. Even when Kate is there, she's not with the kids. Whoopee pictures of her putting the kids on the bus. That's really involved parenting.

Carezee said...

Okay I just seen the video of Kate dropping the kids off at the bus. That is just another scripted moment in their life. The kids all looked like they had already been told to wait in line and wait for mommy to help them out of the van. The same with the hugs and kisses. Cara didn't look like she hugged her mom just kind of stood there and put up with getting a hug. So totally different from how they are with their dad. You can tell they are genuinely happy to see him and it is automatic behavior for them. Not something they have to be told to do. They do it because they love him and he loves them too.

*********************************
woodenspoon, you are absolutely correct! I've thought the same thing. Apparently Kate doesn't see anything wrong with her viciousness. Every parent has had moments of irritation with their kids in public. But a mature person knows how to keep their emotions in check both at home and in public. How humiliating for those kids to be treated like that in front of their schoolmates (and the rest of us!) Kate is a very self-indulgent person. She can't tolerate even the slightest irritation. My mom always told me that people are like teacups. When they get bumped, you see what's really inside.

Oscarinathegrouchish said...

Since these kids don't have enough reason to get picked on in school, Kate just has to get on the bus to kiss them goodbye in front of all the other kids.

Yippee! said...

At the bus, in the propaganda film, notice that the boys help themselves out and are basically ignored, until she realises that she was suppose to kiss and hug the kids, especially Collin, who got his face slapped yesterday.

She readily hugged and kissed the little girls, but had to be coached to love the boys.

And I notice that the "independent" paps never asked Jon if he resented taking care of the kids, while Kate was spending 20 hours in a hotel room, being fussed over and partying with sycophants.

WADR I understand where you are coming from and personally view Kate's attempt at having a show laughable, BUT whether Kate has a show or not has nothing to do with the horror in Haiti. Taking it to the next level "in light of the recent events" the viewing public should demand all shows on TV should be removed from the air. It's not going to happen.
I appreciate your passion but am unable to grasp the logic.

BTW a terrific organization to send a donation is the searchdogfoundation.org. Dogs are rescued from pounds and trained for search and rescue missions. The dogs and handlers go all over the world. Currently in Haiti.

Jibber Jabber,

I love you. You are so talented. Your videos are just wonderful. I just watched the one you had a link to on the other thread. It brought tears to my eyes and I had to watch it a 2nd time. I loved it. I have visited your site JJ and you are a GENIUS! Thank you for the link.

MickeyMcKean said...

To find the Jon is a great dad video, just Google "Jon Gosselin believe it or not".

I did earlier this morning and found lots of interesting stuff :)

Thanks again JibberJabbers for taking the time in making a statement on Jon's behalf that is hard for the Sheeple to deny, deny, deny!

MickeyMcKean said...

On Popeater this morning there is an article re Conan. A portion of the article is below:

What Will Coco Do? A Guide to Conan O'Brien's Next Eight Months

You have eight months ahead of you and we want you to spend them wisely.

Get a tan, kick back, channel your inner Gosselin with some plastique hair, but most importantly come back in September with something new and awesome.

8. "Get some hair extensions a la Kate Gosselin and let your freak flag fly," says grooming expert Margaret Kelly of Lock & Mane. "Nothing says 'Hey NBC I'm a new man and you can suck it,' like some $7 k fake hair."

Ohio Buckeye said...

Hard To Keep Loving Jon: Really enjoyed your comment.

If it's true that the tups are slightly developmentally delayed, one wonders why K8 hasn't been more about spending time at home with them helping them catch up with their skills than pumping up her breasts with silicone, getting bad hairdos and regular mani- & pedicures to continue her shameless flirtation with Showbiz.

For a person who claims to have been 'the forgotten middle child,' she seems to have learned nothing from her own childhood.

Those who don't learn from the past are destined to repeat it.

K8 is hopeless.

no, but I bet we will now . . it's obvious someone reads this site and reacts accordingly. She got bad press about Collin, now she is hugging them. One of the boys stood there when she stopped him to give him a hug and didn't know how to react to the attention. So staged - look how bright the lights were when it was dark outside - bright enough to have that guy film and get good pictures. Oh please TLC, realize it's over and move on. Look how cute the girls were dressed, hair all done, DAMAGE CONTROL. Next People will have a new spread how hard Khate is working.

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

Well said! I loved your whole post & you're right, she should be able to work with a group of 6. She wanted them, it's for her to deal with them & be the parent & that's the problem, she's not being the parent, she continually plays the pity me card & the give me card.

Yippee! said...

At the bus, in the propaganda film,
---------------

I know your post was serious & very good, but I could help laughing when I read "in the propaganda film", it just makes kate & the rest involved sound so Nazi. But a propaganda film is exactly what it is, a reality personality & her cable company are actually making propaganda films all to try & make her look like a better mom, it's ridiculous. All this to convince a public who isn't as dumb as these people continue to hope.

The "believe it or not" video was great JJ!!! That video has got to irritate the heck out of the sheeple. It's right, Jon will always be loved by those kids & kate, well, kate stands a good chance of alienating herself from all of them. We see Hannah run & hug Jon, but you don't really see even her do these things with kate so much. These kids have smiles on their faces when they see their dad & don't smile all that much when they see kate, it's the most telling.

What is forgotten is (and not publicized) is when Jon is home he is with the kids. Even when Kate is there, she's not with the kids. Whoopee pictures of her putting the kids on the bus. That's really involved parenting.

===================================

I know why ROL rants about Jon.

One of my pet peeves is that the Sheeple don't seem to remember [or perhaps understand?] is that because Jon and Kate are now DIVORCED, Jon is no longer living in the McMansion. It seems as if he is no longer living there, he must be a "bad dad".

Jon and Kate have a joint custody time schedule in place. This means they spend their custody time with the kids separately.

So when Jon has his visitation time he goes to PA and spends time with his kids. To be more specific he PLAYS with them, not just let the nanny do everything like Kate. There is enough film evidence of Jon's paternal skills - both before and after the divorce - and it is easy to find if you want to see the obvious proof that Jon loves his kids.

The kicker is we [GWOPers and Sheeple] do not know WHEN and/or HOW OFTEN Jon has visitation per the agreed upon schedule he has with Kate. We only know he has been in PA when there are photos published of him with his kids. Also, just because photos are taken of him playing with his kids once a month does NOT mean that Jon has only been with his kids once a month.

It comes down to "what is publicized" and now that I have typed this sentence I'm wondering if TLC will do everything in its power to squash all future photos of Jon with his kids in order to sway public opinion that he is never there "for his kids", that he is a "bad dad".

This is why a video less than 5 min long is released showing how Kate unloads her kids at a school bus stop which we all agree is obviously forced on her by TLC to show the public that she can show affection to her own 8 kids, AFTER she is caught in a photo of smacking Collin. Pathetic effort on her part showing affection - that woman can't even act like a loving mother unless she hears the word "action!"

Another pet peeve is when Jon is not scheduled to be with his kids, people have a problem that he has friends. Jon is a free man and can spend his time whereever and with whoever he wants. Jon did a video recently where he wants to "turn back time" and get out of the spotlight. Still, Jon can't go bar hopping with Kate's brother [his ex BIL] to 4:00 a.m. without people thinking he should be home with his kids, nor can Jon be in Utah with a new girlfriend. Why is that?

Jon is a divorced man and he can do what he wants in his "free time". I happen to believe that when he is scheduled to be with his kids per the visitation schedule, Jon shows up and is "there" for the kids. By "there" I mean he talks to, listens to, plays with, hugs and kisses them. He has said he takes their phone calls when he is not there, which living with Kate must give their kids just sense of security.

IMHO Jon is a divorced dad who is doing the best he can under the circumstances.

teffi said...

Absolutely LOVED the "believe it or not" video.... It made me smile & get a little teary eyed. The smiles on those precious faces as they run to their daddy are priceless and it simply can't be denied that they LOVE their daddy. He's hands on and NOT in a negative, manhandling, controlling way, like Kate.


Good job Jon! (and JJ for the video!)

Thank you MickyMcKean. You said it far better than I could. Neither are perfect. What pisses me off is the total lack of balance, fairness, and above all having the ability to see what's staring sheeple in their faces, if they bothered to look. There is far more to parenting than walking around in heels and raggy hair doos. Things like affection come to mind. Thanks again for your comment.

TUNDRA said...

Talent Resources who reps Jon Gosselin also does branding deals for the Kardashian girls who are each making millions. Kim Kardashian just launched her new fragrance which is projected to do very well. Not sure what TR can do for Jon Gosselin but it appears he stopped by their gifting suite at Sundance with his new GF and didn't leave empty handed.

MickeyMcKean said...

When I was typing my last post, something occurred to me: perhaps the reason Jon is able to have girlfriends so soon after Kate kicked him to the curb is because Jon is a man who is capable of loving AND is capable of showing his affection even in public.

In fact I am willing to bet that the women who meet Jon can pick up on this affectionate trait of his even if they, like Hailey, never saw the show before they met him.

I think this theory explains a lot especially since there are of men out there who have a problem in communicating or showing true affection for the women in their life. [I bet most of us have run into men that are incapable of showing affection]

Anyway, in Jon's case, because he is a celebrity of sorts, he will of course also attract women who crave media attention. Kate G, Kate M, and Stephanie come to mind; Hailey IMO was a "late bloomer" LOL

As for Christie, we will just have to wait and see.

=================================

For the record I read the same article and had an opposite reaction to it.

Christie, reportedly from a family who has money and if true I assume also likes to make money, the thought that crossed my mind was whether or not Christie wanted to talk to producers about pitching an idea for a new TV show for Jon.

If they liked her idea, she could be behind the scenes of the show, not necessarily in front of the cameras. The kicker is if she sold her idea and it was a hit she would make a percentage off the show ... how much money did TLC make on J&K+8?

So because of her family background and the fact that she is in law school, perhaps she just has an idea that could make her money and not that that she is an instantaneous famewhore wannabe and has dreams of being on TV.

Hey, I could be wrong about Christie's motives about wanting to talk to producers. Time will tell, right?

N.E. Psychologist said...

Jibber Jabbers - Thank you for the wonderful video. It gives me some hope for those children.
As has been posted by numerous people in the past, I am very afraid that in Jon's absence KHate is taking her anger out on the children, who deserve better in life.

Mickey McKean - I completely agree with your post about ROL. I agree that tlc is probably trying to placate her majesty annd upgrade her image. I just do not understand the need to totally destroy Jon.

I have to add that some of the more rabid sheeple are potentially very dangerous.

Hard to Keep Loving Jon said...

Just read today's comments and became even more angry thinking of all the pimping Miss Media Ho did for material things, yet we never saw a moment of joy at reading a book such as Eric Carl's The Very
Quiet Cricket. My 9 year old students still beg me to turn off the lights and read it!

GWOPers have a right to be angry, sheeple!

*******

We don't know what happened there.
It's possible the girls got in a fight and don't want to spend time together. We don't know where Talia goes to school, either, so
they may have simply grown apart.

But yes, they were best friends. I think it was the twins' 7th or
8th birthday when all they wanted was a sleepover with Talia.

I don't recall seeing Talia at the sextuplets' 5th birthday party - the girls invited someone else their age to keep them company. And yet another girl went with them to the Jonas Brothers concert.

Friendships end for any number of reasons. Let's hope it was just
growing apart on the part of these 3 girls, rather than a decision made by their parents.

Rose said...

"Cara didn't look like she hugged her mom just kind of stood there and put up with getting a hug."
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
I just finished watching the video as well, and you are totally right about Cara. She didn't hug her mother at all; she just leaned against her for a second, as if she was just accepting the hug and getting it over with. There was no warmth or sincerity at all. And I also noticed that she picked up and hugged the little girls so willingly, but she was much colder with the boys.

Gimme Gimme said...

Remember when the kids said if we tell mom the bus is here she will give us some candy. I can imagine her doing the same here...perform and you will get a reward. This is important. This is our future. You kids don't have a job, I have to support you. And yes the adorable kids stepped right up to the plate and knocked it out of the park. Kate's performance however was unconvincing.

Jibber Jabbers thank you for the magazine. You should be in the biz if not already. The mag is great and I absolutely love the believe it or not video.

Gimme Gimme said...

Is it just me or is mommie dearest being made the butt of more and more jokes these days in the media?

katan the stupid said...

Jibberjabbers, thanks for the video link. How could the sheeple possibly think Jon isn't the more beloved parent after seeing that? Kate says she has to man the ship, but she's obviously doing something very wrong. Children understand when you are being strict for their own good, their safety, and to teach them right from wrong. They also understand when you are an asshole, unfair, mean and cruel. Remember cupcakegate? Those poor boys didn't complain much for fear of angering their bitch Mom, but they KNEW she was wrong and downright mean. Those boys slapping their foreheads, hanging their heads, and sobbing on their birthday and ON CAMERA! Kate is so self-righteous that she'd actually do that on film. So God bless poor confused immature Jon. He may be the one to save them. Oh, and Kate, when you brag how well adjusted your kids are because of your mothering skills, please.... They are intact somehow IN SPITE of the fact that they were unfortunate enough to have you for a mother/lion tamer.

Interesting you brought that up. I always felt the BFF between the twins and Beth's daughter was a figment of Kate's imagination. Like she wanted it known her daughters BF was rich. I never believed it in that Beth's daughter was several years older than the twins and I am sure she had friends her own age. She probably accompanied her mom to see the tups and was corralled by Kate to 'play' with the twins, and another lie was born.

Does anyone know:

1. Has Jon moved out of the NYC apt that was ransacked?

2. If yes, does anyone know where he is currently living?

3. When it was reported that Jon was in ETown recently visiting Kevin and Jody, did he have the kids with him or was he there visiting them alone?

4. The new owners of the old house, were they aware of who the Gosselins were before they purchased the home? (Believe it or not TLC, there are still people out there who are clueless about the Gosselins and sometimes I envy their ignorance LOL)

I'm just a little bit curious about the above questions. If no one knows the answers that is OK. I will still be able to sleep nights.

I think my9cats has it about right with respect to Talia disappearing. It was mostly in Kate's mind and when she and Beth split why on earth would Beth still bringing Talia around?

Jibber Jabber, did you notice in those pictures on the vol 2 sheeple magazine that Kate appears to be saying the same thing each time? In everyone of them her lips are pursed exactly the same way. Like she is saying You.... She is so not nice.

The ROL/TLC Manufactured and FAKE video of Hate and the children getting on the schoolbus:

Did anyone else think the videographer sounded familiar?
This is, at least, the THIRD video this guy has "narrated" for these conmen. Remember the video of Yawn sitting in his car, when he trashes Jodie and Kevin to the "pap" who has his camera stuck two feet inside Yawn's car window? SAME guy.
Then there was Yawn and Hailey, in all their loveliness, walking the streets of NYC, spouting about how in lust they were.
SAME guy.
This time, however, they colluded with the bus driver to be in on the action, thereby compromising her morals. That whole thing was SO FAKE and so in response to Hate hitting Collin. Geeeeezzzzz!
And the "pretend" mother, who runs up to protect Hate.

Obviously, none of them ever read Ann Landers, who so eloquently said:
"THOSE WHO EXCUSE THEMSELVES
ACCUSE THEMSELVES.

Amy2 said...

Ding, Ding, Ding. The light finally came on for me. Another reason why I know the bus video was staged, the little girls were dressed in matchy outfits. In the past we've seen pics from Radaronline with them coming from Target, etc. in matchy outfits. The kids were camera ready. I wonder if the kids had to practice at home hugging Kate so they could perform for the camera. (snark)

Laurie said...

The way kHate hugs the kids in that video is nothing more than an "Oprah hug". An Oprah hug is the hug that Oprah gives guests when she wants/needs to keep her distance (from the book "The Murder's Daughers") When I read that I thought "That's kHate with her kids!" So ver sad

I agree. All the matching clothes means is that it's Kate's time with them. I doubt Jon would care if they dressed the same or not.
I have no idea what nannies think about it, if there is still a nanny around, that is.

Once again jibber jabber - you have shown your brilliant snarkiness. Love the Sheeple cover!

Bus Lady Has a Question said...

I'm confused about the bus photo ops...

It seems that Khate could arrange with the bus driver to park next to the bus or just have one space between, AND they could arrange to be facing opposite directions so the kids could hop out of the van on the passenger side and hop right into the bus.

The way she does it now she "has to" parade the eight little kiddie$ across several spaces, thus giving the paps (whom she calls, I'm sure) the opportunity to get their shots.

Of course, I am just being silly here! Why would she want to allow the kids any privacy?

The parking lot is huge and usually empty - she could easily arrange a more private transfer....

Just another example... sigh...

TLC EXEC:
Katie Honeeeeey, you've got to park further away... our paps can't get all the kids when you walk them to the bus...

KATE:
But Sugar Daddy TLC, I just hate having to get up so early in the morning to do hair and makeup for those shots...

TLC:
Oh Katie Honey, Sweetie... think about it - you want to look more casual in response to those comments on GWoP. Lose the heels, cover up those tittays, put your hair... I mean fake hair... into a ponytail. That will get all the American housewives vote. They are so easy to hook. Trust me on this -the demographics you want are the Single Moms; and they are gullible and they wear ponytails.

TLC EXEC:
And for Gawd sake quit hitting your kids in the parking lot!!! Those face smacks are killing us in the ratings! And quit with the arm jerks too - it would kill us if you dislocated one of the boys shoulders. Geez, think of the bad publicity.... ah geez.......how in the world would be spin that one?!!!

KATE:
OK Sugar, but this better get me that show you've been promising me. Remember, no show = an angry Kate... and you don't want to make Kate angry, do you?

Fade to black.

TLC EXEC to TLC LAWYER:
I do NOT care how you do it, just get rid of her! No Kate, no show, no sh*t... She's become a major pain the the a$$.

And sadly, that wasn't the only time those poor kids were seen crying and miserable on their birthday. Remember Cara and Mady turning 7 in Season 3? Mady came storming in and kicking her balloons, and after that, both girls were yelling and crying as they opened their presents. Then, at the tups' fifth birthday party, Alexis had to be clinging to her daddy and asking him not to leave anymore, instead of just enjoying her party.

Gee, I wonder why there were cameras shoved in their little faces on their birthday - a day where they should be able to relax, have a good time, and not be the pawns in Mommy's selfish needs. It's really too bad those kids can't be happy on their special days. And Kate thinks she's such a sensational mother who is giving her children life served up on a golden platter. It's laughable at best.

Tami said...

The girls are frequently dressed in matching outfits for school.
*******
And yet,lately they have shown the kids many times in non-matching clothes and the girls with messy hair. If they frequently still match I wonder why they don't shoot it more.

The only way Kate could redeem herself in my eyes is if she took lazy ass and her nursing skills down to Haiti and actually did something for someone else for a change. She could easily arrange for Jon to move in with the kids for a month or so.

It'll never happen, alas, but that is a show I would watch.

Vanessa said...

Yes, while Jon "parties his life away at Sundance" Queenie takes care of bus duty! Ummm aren't you their "mother"? I normally don't see TWO parents dropping off their kids at ANY bus stop? If Jon & Kate were still together do you think she'd wake her lazy ass up to take them all by herself?
Not a snowball's chance!

Aunt Chris said...

"Clean Slate Kate"? Seems more like Cold as Slate Kate to me.


There must still be a nanny around some time because the girls hair was braided the other day, and we know Kate does not to that. Maybe BFF Jamie did. OR Ted the fabulous hairdresser spent 20 hours on the girls! The boys of course would get nothing out of that because they are icky.

Midnight Serenade said...

"It seems that Khate could arrange with the bus driver to park next to the bus or just have one space between, AND they could arrange to be facing opposite directions so the kids could hop out of the van on the passenger side and hop right into the bus."

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

Right. And then she would be bashed for telling the driver how to do his job, and that she has no business getting preferential treatment.

Feeling Sorry for the 8 Kids said...

Here's a link to a brief story about Jon visiting Washington, DC (yet again) with his latest girlfriend (or his current flavor of the month) and mentioning how he got his first professional brow wax. Blech!

http://voices.washingtonpost.com/reliable-source/2010/01/hey_isnt_that_jon_gosselin_bac.html

If Jon (or even his ex, Kate) would do something charitable, I would at least respect him. I'm sure TLC would give their blessing for him to do some kind of live appearance to benefit the earthquake victims in Haiti. Or to highlight a less publicized cause (like the incidence of slavery in much of the world). But he continues to be some glorified attention whoring party boy (like a male Paris Hilton) and I just can't admire him.

Hard to Keep Loving Jon said...

TLC pays mega bucks to make Miss Media Ho look "good/better" ---

fidosmommy said...

Re: parking distance from bus door.

I agree she could park closer and make it easier on the children to have to face the paparazzi for a shorter distance. I don't mean park right in front of the bus door, but closer than she does.
Surely she doesn't have to park
all that distance away and can still keep all the children safe.

Frankly, I don't understand why the pick-up is in the middle of the parking lot anyway. I would have thought that they could line up their cars in front of the stores and get out on the sidewalk and walk down the covered sidewalk to the bus. It seems safer to me - less area where there are cars. And there is no business going on that early in the morning. Of course, in the afternoon, they would have to do something different since business would be going on in the stores.

There may be some kind of a school policy we don't know about that has to do with distance parked from the bus.

****

I have a friend whose daughter is a nurse. She wanted to go down to help but the mission organizations are saying it's really horrific down there and unless you have prior experience in disaster situations they would prefer you to stay home right now. Not because they begrudge the help but they need to focus on the victims of the quake and they don't have time to help volunteers process their own horror and grief.

Kate would only distract from the efforts down there, even if she did try and go. So would Jon.

silimom said...

Radar had an article that stated that Angelina and Brad are consulting with lawyers because they're about to break up.

If that's true (and not certain that I believe it is) then Jon and Kate are going to be out of the news for MONTHS. Remember how Angie and Brad dominated the news when he and Jennifer Aniston split?

================================

AN ABSOLUTELY BRILLANT IDEA!!!!

HEADS UP TLC!!!

Here is an idea for a new TV show for "Can Do Kate" that even I would watch!!

Seriously TLC, THINK ABOUT THE PR POSSIBILITIES!
If nothing else that $7K makeover would be globally noticed!

Keep in mind that:

* Kate recently renewed her nursing license

* There are more than 8 children in Haiti that need her help

* Kate loves to travel

* Kate has a valid passport

* Kate prefers warmer climates

* Kate will be able to help others in need

* Kate can help others get organized and rebuild

* Even if filming permits are required I bet under the circumstances no one would say no to Kate's help

* Jon can take care of the kids in Pennsylvania

However:

* Kate will have to learn to live without Starbucks coffee

* Kate will learn to live without getting her nails done on a weekly basis

* Kate will not have to worry about keeping up with her "fake bake" as she can do it naturally in Haiti

BOTTOM LINE:
TLC wants to be known as The Learning Channel and here is an excellent opportunity for TLC to educate the world what has not only happened in Haiti but how Kate Gosselin can help. A perfect opportunity for Kate to give something back to people in need.

DON'T MISS THE BOAT TLC!

GET KATE GOSSELIN ON BOARD ASAP!

Tamara said...

I used to like US Weekly, but now they are showing the pic of Khate abusing Collin, and saying "Kate stops a fight..." Sure, a fight between herself and her 5 year old son!

When has she said that all the kids have scholarships to their school? And which school do they go to? Please someone email me, I am curious. Thanks.

Ohio Buckeye said...

Big Wooden Spoon & Mickey McKean: Wouldn't it be a brilliant ploy on the part of TLC to tell K8, "We have good news and bad news....

The good news is, we have found a format for your new 'show'!!!!!!

But, Katie Darlin', the bad news is, you'll be travelling first to Haiti and filmed along side all the other REAL relief workers , actually DOING the relief and restore work.

After Haiti, we have your tickets for Darfur.

Next stop: slums of Guatemala.

Oh, and BTW, your new contract will disallow any whining and lying about how lonely, broke, and put upon you are.

We have a full itinerary ready to go, but first, lose the fun bags, the weave and wig, and synthetic painted nails.

Yes, with our new format for you, we're out to redefine 'the realest reality show'."


I'm guessing K8 would have her atty on the line before the rest of us could say 'organic' to find away out of her TLC contracts.

We'd ALL be rid of her, finally. She could return to oblivion, where she has always belonged.

Who wants to call TLC and pitch this idea for their way out of continuing to bet on their current BIGGEST LOSER MEDIA (w)HOR(S)E?

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

Why, yes, of course! When your entire pesonal and professional life (does he have one?) has completely run off the rails, what better plan of action than to GET YOUR FIRST PROFESSIONAL BROW WAX?

Yep, that's the ticket. Wax those brows, Jon. That'll just fix everything. I mean, the hair transplant really worked so well for you ..... and then those glow in the dark tooth veneers totally catapulted you and your career.

Yes, when your exwife is a total whack job, your 8 kids are suffering through a divorce that is as contentious as it is public, the only real solution is GETTING YOUR FIRST PROFESSIONAL BROW WAX JOB.

French vacas and ski trips. NYC appt with live-in-girl-o-month, boob jobs, mani & pedicures, weaves and wigs. It's just so comforting the way Jon and K8 live by their stated goal of 'everything for the children'.

Raise of hands: who's inspired?

please no said...

Kate in Haiti? No way! Kate Gosselin would try to make that tragedy all about her. If she went, she'd find some way to make it benefit her, because she does not care about anyone else. While I'd love to see her sweat and work in icky conditions, I can't imagine she'd be much help with her camera crew, makeup artist, and agent in tow. We'd be subjected to faux heartrending interviews with her and she'd write a book or do a special on it. No, no, no. Those poor people in Haiti have suffered enough

please no said...

However, I'd love to hear that Kate has donated a substancial amount of money to help the Haitian people. Five figures, Kate.

SwingsandRoundabouts said...

jibberjabbers,

You have lured me out of a long self-imposed lurkdom concerning the Gosselins, but I have to commend you on the creativity of your posts. You have made me laugh and almost cry.

I also commend the other Gwoppers who have never given up as I have almost done and who continue to bear witness to the actions of Khate and who still hold some hope for those kids, despite the actions of their own parents and TLC.

Thanks for continuing to fight the good fight. (I would mention you all by name, but I believe you know who you are.)

Ohio Buckeye said...

Swings & RoundAbouts: Welcome back! Hope you'll stick around. You've been missed.

yippee said...

I think it is an excellent idea, for a TLC "special"....can do Kate heads to Haiti to help out as a nurse! I would also watch! They can use her skills down there. What a great idea. And I don't want to hear an excuse that she can't leave the kids, because she was gone from the kids almost the whole summer long, on her "book tour"....

I tell you what, if she did that, I would admire her.

The idea place said...

I think TLC should listen to the viewers here on this board. Most of us are here because we loved the show at first, and then became appalled at Kate's behavior, and just needed to vent. WE are the audience they built their empire on!

There are great ideas on this board. Kate going to Haiti, would be gold.


Also, if it is true that Kate is taking anger management classes...they should be filmed! She doesn't mind being expoited...that would be the biggest reality show ever! Really. It would be educational, and perhaps help others to admit their problems....and save kids. A lot of good could be done through Kate's fame, if they did this.

Also, Kate should have an organising show...this is what she is good at. She is an organiser.

But, her reputation as a meanie, is what brings in the audience, frankly; and seeing her do something generous, would bring in viewers.

Likewise a real money maker would be seeing her get help for her anger problem. There is no other show like it on tv. There are other compulisive behavior shows; but not one devoted to anger..which is deadly. It would be solid gold....I know it. ESPECIALLY, if former friends and employees came on and told stories of her anger; as well as her family and Jon, honestly telling their stories of her anger---in the effort to help her; which ultimately helps the kids...do it FOR THE KIDS! That would be a top rated series....it absolutely would bring all of us back, wouldn't it?

Also, it would give Kate a chance to be on all the talk shows again, and "write" a new book about her struggle. It could be all about HER...she wouldn't have to share anything with Joh, nor exploit her children. I think tit is a win-win.

Those dogs were lucky. Can't say the same for these poor kids.

Loved the video jibberjabbers. The pictures of the kids being pulled on the sleds by Jon took me back.

I doubt her kids are on scholarship - More like volume discount. Don't they give you 20% off for multiples, at least after the first one or two extra kids?

Something about Jon just makes me irritated, seeing him swanning around like he thinks he's a big celebrity at Sundance! It breaks my heart what those kids must think if it's true that daddy is moving to UTAH. I don't care if he can be there for his visitation. He is their SANE parent supposedly. What if Joel falls off his bike or Alexis the monkey bars at school, someone breaks a limb or Cara needs him, if she's just sad - I would want to be there for my kids and this thing of moving across the country is BS. What does park City have? Snow boarding? Measured against being near your kids? He can fly to Park City in the winter and LIVE near his children. He's always trying to shack up with some teeny bopper's parents. WTF?

I wonder how many people other than baby mama's idiot herd, actually follow all this junk in the press or on the Internet. I haven't seen it for a good long time and the only place I see links is here - I don't go to Radaronline in my normal websurfing; aside from the People cover I haven't seen either one of them. I think the Jon vs Kate PR wards are feeding what little spark of life is left in this couple. The book's being dumped in Europe, there's no "project" TLC is willing to talk about and Jon doesn't seem to have a darn thing going on other than the sites like ROL trying to whip up sentiment against him. I'm so sick of the pair of them, and I am sure they will have some fresh drama when school's out and the kids can be exploited much further than they can with only weekends to spare especially when their father's TLC contract runs out and he is able to throw his hat in the ring aqain.

It's weird that Jon or Kate could go so long without seeing their kids. My ex and I live within a mile of each other so that we are both available to drive, pick up, and see the kids easily. We both manage to see the kids everyday, almost without fail, even if for a few minutes to drop off something they left at one house or the other. Don't the gosselin kids go to bday parties (besides their own, pathetic filmed ones)? Do any of them play sports? Go to friends' homes? Or are they just prisoners in that Orphanage, so the issue of needing two parents around to make life work just a moot point?

It was said on the show that the twins were on scholarship.

However since they became "stars" and moved to mansion, we do not know if they are still on scholarship.

No word about the tups.

Also the true defination of scholarship has never been defined-the school waived fees or some friend/family is paying

LOL! Good luck with that. A man making over 100k would not want a 35yo woman with 8 kids. Especially a woman who wants wear the pants in the relationship.

If any man does, I would do a background check. He could probably be after something else than that hag.

I wish this story is true. It would be a huge real wake-up call when no one shows up to participate in the show.

And how many "relationships" that were set-up by a TV show, last longer than 3 months?

I can't believe how delusional Kate is.

Seriously, finding that "special someone" thru a TV show?

Unfortunately there will be a line up of losers auditioning for Khate's new "romance" show. This era of instant fame will attract all those crazies obsessed with being famous.

She'll get a new breed of fans that won't see or care about what she's done to her family/children/husband.
Someone? Anyone? Please write a book exposing the truth! I guarantee it will be a best-seller!

Are there really mature, wealthy men who would be at all interested in dating her Royal Hiney? Ha! I think it would be a hoot to see her batting her eyelashes and talking baby talk as she attempts to woo these guys.

********
Of course you are right, Merilee.
We only see a portion of their lives. However, with the long bus ride to school and another long bus ride from school, they are gone from 7:30 (or so) until 4:30
(or so) every day, maybe later. So, there is no time for after-school events AT SCHOOL, such as
field hockey or soccer team practice. The only possibility for the twins to have that is if they don't ride the bus home and get a ride with another team member after practice. That is certainly possible.

Mady apparently takes her violin lessons at school, evidenced by her having her violin with her in the SUV.

We don't know if they are part of any organizations (church youth programs, etc) or not, but I'm guessing not. Now that they are not on a filming schedule, there may be more time for such things of interest to them.

What we all hope is that the Gosselin children are getting a well-rounded life, full of interesting things to do right there in their own part of PA. Children learn so much from sports, music, art, organized activities (scouting, etc) and just freetime to play, explore and
interact. And time to just laze around some too!

If the kids were involved in extracurricular activities, wouldn't Jon and Kate have mentioned it? If they wanted their children's lives put out there on national TV, why wouldn't they have mentioned that Cara is in basketball, Mady takes horseback riding lessons, and 3 of the tups are into T-ball? It's not like they would be giving out the kid's social security number, and it would have seemed normal to mention these things even if there was no film of the kids doing them.

Because Kate has allowed extremely
private moments to be filmed, it seems odd that something as innocuous as "Mady is enjoying her
painting lessons" would be kept so quiet.

There were reports of Jon going to Cara's soccer games after school last fall, so she must have been playing with some team! I even remember Kate asking him if he could come back to PA early so he could go to the game (Which he did). And don't ask me how I know Kate said that to Jon, because I honestly don't remember. It must have been in an interview or somethint.

I dont know why age and yearly income is of significance for Kate only NOW in terms of the contestants on a 'reality' tv dating show as Jon's age and income (or lack there of) certainly werent of concern when she pursued fertility treatments and ultimately gave birth to EIGHT children knowing full well they 'barely had a roof over their head and food on the table'. Is Kate looking for a potential life partner or a sugar daddy?

Maybe it was just a slow news week in the entertainment world and they pulled up that old report that TLC recently denied. I think the days are gone when they could actually sell magazines. I wonder how the People cover did. Is there any way to find out? I don't really care what she does nothing will work for her. With the recent things that have been going on w/ some of those contestants on the dating shows I would rate that right up there w/ internet dating.

Wealthy? said...

$100K a year does not make one wealthy, just upper middle class. You have to consider that although $100K may be the gross it's quite a different story once taxes, insurance, etc., etc., etc. are taken out. As longtime Government employees my husband and I make over $100K and we are by no means "wealthy" and all we've got is one kid and one dog!!

IF the dating show is real, what message does that send to the kids? Love means nothing...you date for money (like a whore

I find it extremely odd that, Kate, being MOTHER of 8 children, and who requires the presence of a 'round the clock body gaurd would be so willing to put herself out there in the form of a 'reality' show where the premise involves dating multiple men at one time. I understand the fact that Kate CRAVES attention and must constantly feed her insatiable ego , but where is her consideration with respect to the possible affects doing such a show and the premise involved will have on her eight children.

stopthemadness said...

I had to laugh out loud when I saw the show idea here. i JUST this minute wrote elsewhere that I was glad TLC was hanging on to Kate because I felt there was a certain level beneth which they would not sink - and for her kids' sake at least she would not be appearing on some tacky crap show like Rock of Love. That TLC would want to keep her positioned as the Caring Mom. Well, I guess we know what TLC does when the going gets tough. Can't find something to do with Katie? Lower your standards. The dating show IS something people would tune in to see. I want to see her slap and manhandle and smart off to some young, career oriented guy who isn't strapped to her by virtue of years of abuse, low self esteem, and 8 kids, push her into the pool when she tells him he is breathing wrong.
Those poor kids, watching your mom go through this. Will they have ANY respect for her? I thought she was the high road taker and Jon was the skirt chaser? How are they gonna position her now, she's making HIS dating look sensible. And you know she will get in as many shots about Jon as she can, and her kids watching and listening, That'll be good for their self esteem.

Kate Needs a Date - episode one: Kate takes the high road, so her dates can look up her skirt.

Barbara in VA said...

I wouldn't wish Kate's nursing "skills" on the poor people of Haiti...and don't give TLC any suggestions. She practically vomited when one of the kids got a beesting.

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

Interesting choice of words... gender preference isn't specified.

jibberjabbers said...

Kate wouldn't want another Jon?

She would be lucky if she did. Someone to serve her hand and foot. Someone that was there for the kids while she was busy pimping 'her' book.

Someone that woke up first, to get the kids ready before he went to work.

Someone that watched and played with his kids while Kate was busy standing in her "island" where everyone is banned from.

Kate would be lucky to have someone that was willing to seek marriage counseling after all the abuse HE been thru.

Kate would never find a man that would love and care for the 8 as Jon.

Never... Not even Kate would care for the kids as much as Jon did.

Ohio Buckeye said...

Requirements to Date Khate include:

1) Deaf in one ear and can't hear out of the other (so as to remain sane as K8 drones endlessly on about "me!" "I")
2)Must love possums and porcupines
3) Must have a neurotic freak out at the sight of: Crayola markers, grass stains, and melting ice cream
4) Bonus points to any who have a shiny, shiny, mirror-like surface so that K8 can continuously admire her own reflection.
5)Must Bring Own Wooden Spoon

They won't do a dating show with Kate now that Cindy Margolis has her Seducing Cindy show coming up. That's like comparing a melons to an ugli-fruit.

And SERIOUSLY...what incentive does a guy who makes $100,000 plus have in wooing Kate? He may as well just show up at her door with 2 things in his hands...his checkbook and his balls and hand them right over.

Momof2 said...

Wealthy? said...

$100K a year does not make one wealthy, just upper middle class. You have to consider that although $100K may be the gross it's quite a different story once taxes, insurance, etc., etc., etc. are taken out. As longtime Government employees my husband and I make over $100K and we are by no means "wealthy" and all we've got is one kid and one dog!!
.........................

I agree!! I was thinking the same thing. We have a small-ish house and 2 kids. I am a SAHM and some weeks are better than others but most weeks we are left with only a couple hundred for groceries, gas, entertainment, and incidentals. There is NO way I could feed 8 kids and pay a mortgage on a million dollar estate, private school tuition, and wear Cole Haan shoes on that income!

Goawayfools said...

It's hard to imagine any worthwhile man would want to date Kate Gosselin. This chunky, Botoxed, castrating bitch has the nerve to be picky regarding her potential suitors' annual salary? She'll be lucky to find any partner ever again. No man with any self respect would want to date this evil, demanding, unappreciative liar. His job and reputation could be threatened by dating her; people would wonder what's wrong with him for willingly signing up to date Katan. His masculinity and self-esteem would be questioned by all since she so publicly and needlessly destroyed her ex-husband. If the guy's a great catch, why would he stoop to date this opportunistic parasite? Does she want a wealthy man so she can continue her grift? Is she looking for a new sponsor now that she's gone through Jon's dad, the government, kind people in churches, and sponsors from her show to support her? Then there's the eight kids who many fear will be troubled teens due to their mother's abuse and neglect. Will they be depressed? Angry? Promiscuous? Delinquents? On drugs? Worse?

Katan is delusional to think any man with integrity and self-respect would want to date her. They will find men to sign up for her dating show but only because they want to be on tv or hope to be supported by her (ha!). Think of the guys who fought over that awful New York woman on her reality show. She is supremely undesirable, like Kate, yet had men pretending to want to be with her. Kate's narcissistic streak would eat that up, even if the guys don't really want her, just the notoriety. However, her long suffering kids would be further traumatized and embarrassed by any such show if it does indeed come to fruition. Not that Kate would care; it's all about her.

Gimme a break I sure deserve it said...

According to entertainment site TheWrap.com Kate's new show will be about her"trying different jobs and tasks and showing how she performs in the different environments"

I hope this is true. I posted an idea very similar to this here a few months ago! LOL

*Must endure a year of waiting for that beloved monkey bread and hot chocolate. Afterall it is memory food.

*Must never interrupt naptime when BFF comes over.

yeaisaidthat said...

Interesting that Jon has taken so much heat for his 'dating' choices but yet Kate Gosselin is allegedly in the works for a 'reality' dating show where the premise involves Kate getting PAID to allow MULTIPLE men to entertain and date her. Gives a whole new meaning to the word 'Jon'.

Must liked to be love-slapped in face.

Interesting comment: “The obsession to be on TV is like the obsession to use drugs and alcohol,” Miami psychologist Dr. Jamie Huysman told TheWrap. “It’s just a symptom of a much deeper emotional problem, and the sufferer’s malaise infects the entire family.”

From TheWrap: http://bit.ly/a0PxRZ

They have several related articles that are also good reading. While these are written primarily about the "contestant" style shows like Survivor and Biggest Loser, a lot of what they say rings true for the "family" reality shows as well.

But, will those clowns meet the 2 criteria?

1) Make at least 100k
2) Be at least 36 years old.

You would think by 36, men or women would be mature enough not to be in a reality show just for their 15mins.

And if they're making 100k, I'm pretty sure they have better things to do then be part of a stupid reality show.

They can just show up at a bar and find someone hotter, and younger than Kate.

I remember that episode where, despite having ordered her own meal, she continued to help herself to her husband's plate, complaining that his food was better than hers.

I am guessing this was just a glimpse into what K8 has been like since childhood: no matter what, she always seems to feel SHE got shortchanged and is absolutely entitled to help herself to whatever anyone else has.

Who the H would want to DATE this woman? Even for money and a shot at momentary 'celebrity'. Blech. Some things just aren't worth it.

Must like sleeping over the garage as procreation is strictly prohibited under penalty of severanceness!!!

Must attend daily cowering lessons!

No hitting on the nannies!!

Do not sit down or get up before me!!!

For your own protection, keep all sharp implements safely secured.

Are You Expecting Twins, Triplets or More? Make Room for Multiples!
A NEW SHOW BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE PRODUCERS OF "A BABY STORY".

If you answered YES and are delivering between December 15, 2009 and March 2010, we want to hear from you.

We are interested in high-energy, real and open expecting parents for a national television show that will document the birth and first weeks of your babies' lives.

Ideally, we are seeking families in the NY-NJ-CT tri-state area, but would possibly make an exception if you are pregnant with triplets or more.

Must never, ever ask Khate when she is going to "take the stick out." You will be put on hard labor and banished to the basememt throughout the rest of your thereafter short-lived tenure in the house (except during filming, of course).

Must have any and all trust funds made "revocable." You never know when they might be needed for emergency plastic surgeries and/or to replenish the hooker heels, plunging neck lines, pushup bras and tight miniskirts (afterall they are a must for hot air balloon rides).

Vanessa said...

She probably thinks she's weeding out the losers with this list of criteria. Anyone watch "Million Dollar Listing" (I think that's the name of the show) These self made real-estate moguls are just as full of themselves as she is.
Mind you, I think the oldest one is 25, but all have that "look at me" syndrome. Anynone who will want to be on the show will clash with her, you can't have TWO stars! On J&K+8 she always made sure she was never upstaged by her own children, you think she's going to let some GUY take the spotlight off her?

The writing is on the wall for these 2, and I believe it doesn't bode well for any type of longevity for another show for Khate.

Over the last month the articles and photos of these 2 have been less and less, with many days "Gosselin Free" days.

I love it. It means the kids are seeing less and less and that's a great thing!

logical said...

I just don't understand why TLC would think a date show featuring Kate would work. Get serious!!! Who in their right mind would want to date her after show after show showed the world how terribly awful she could be. However having said that I agree with whoever posted there is ALWAYS someone who would want to date Kate because it would bring them 15 minutes of fame. Is that as scary to everyone else as it is me? They are going to let whoever wants to date kate around those precious kids?

I don't understand what TLC is thinking, not for one minute!!

I'm thinking of Leona Helmsley and her "I'm-just-wild-about" Harry. The kids go off to boarding school and sleepaway summer camp, of course.

Yet off she goes, to the beach anyway, oh the sacrifice's little katie will make for her children (nope, not at all about showing her cosmetic surgery off, nope, nope, not at all about that), you'd think with her large brood she'd have taken a trip to the mountains & tried to invoke the whole Von Trapp family vibe. She'd just have to watch out for Jon snowboarding off into the sunset with the Julie Andrews nanny.

maggie said...

I reading on another site today and it said that "Eight Little Faces" book is a knockoff of Bobbi McCaughley's book, "Celebrating the Wonder of Motherhood". The reason is the layout with the kids pictures and bible verses is so like what Kate wrote. Then the next post I read included a picture of the Gosselins boys in their pumpkin outfits when they were around 1 or so. In the background of the photo is a table with two books on it. The book that is under the top book is just visible enough to see the cover. And guess what book it was. Bobbi's book "Celebrating The Wonder of Motherhood".

Proof positive that not only did Kate copy Bobbi's book for its layout and ideas but has a copy of it in her home as reference. Kate doesn't have an original idea in her head. I bet if Kate was asked if she read the book for ideas she would deny it.

she is evil said...

Bobbi McCaughey is a lovely, loving mother, so soft spoken, humble, grateful... such a great example of a good person and mother. She must cringe that Kate is copying her, as Kate is none of these things and may have had those tups on purpose to exploit them. Don't know if this is really true, but I read somewhere (a post here, I think) that Kate called her when she was preggers to get advice. Bobbi mentioned that the churches were especially generous to her and her family. Interesting that Jon and Kate were so "religious" right after the tips were born. Anyone know if she gave a hoot about religion before she abused the churches' generosity? She sure blew them off as soon as she no longer needed them. Bobbi must be so disgusted that Kate used her as an inspiration but in such a self-serving way.

Ohio Buckeye said...

@She is Evil: Add Mrs. Dilley to the list with Mrs. McCoughey of women who have shown more grace, intelligence, wisdom (yes, there's a difference between being smart and being wise), and love.

Kate Gosselin isn't even close to being in the same league as these women.

readerlady said...

@ Vanessa

TLC is still showing reruns of J&K+8. They air at a very early hour (I THINK it's 6 A.M. EST), don't have my channel guide handy, so don't hold me to that time. And no,I'm not watching, just happened to notice the listing when I was looking for a TNT show on the channel lineup (I'm addicted to "Angel" reruns, VBG.

ITA with y'all that Becki Dilley and Bobbi McCoughey (sp?) are both very classy ladies. Shame Khate only absorbed the "freebies" part of the message and didn't learn about kindness, love, self-sacrifice, etc. And I'm sure that Mrs. McCoughey didn't tell her that everything had to match and that everything had to be new and that the kids had to always dress alike.

I say that Balloon Boy's father would be ideal for Kate, but I shudder to think of the two of them together - both so fame hungry they even make their own kids sick.

@She is Evil: Add Mrs. Dilley to the list with Mrs. McCoughey of women who have shown more grace, intelligence, wisdom (yes, there's a difference between being smart and being wise), and love.

The fact that we know so little of their kids shows us that they put being a family first.

These are the women, who could write books/articles.
They have walked the walk and they are surviving well without the luxury of all the cash and freebies the gosselins had.

Interesting that Jon and Kate were so "religious" right after the tips were born. Anyone know if she gave a hoot about religion before she abused the churches' generosity? She sure blew them off as soon as she no longer needed them.
________
They sure made a big deal of showing them going to church early on the show. You now, before kate wore bikinis and jon got his ears pierced.

I do think they played up the religious card to collect the "love offerings"

Do they still go to church.Anyone?

Kate was raised in a religious home, what I would consider a more charismatic or evangelical church.
It may be Assemblies of God denomination. Conservative.
So I'm not sure it was exactly a scam that they started speaking in churches first. It was a logical starting place. But I think the
love offerings that came rolling in became the prize rather than the
joy of sharing their story with Christian families. Like all new
experiences, once we get a good feeling from it, we want more and more of it. In this case, money. That meant more talks in more churches. The talks became their income source, and they lost all sense of propriety about the
stories they told and the needs they expressed. The money morphed from love offerings to demanded income once they saw how easy it was.

This is only an opinion. I have never been to one of their church talks. Nor would I ever go.

I bet God's mad at her said...

Bluesclues, I don't think they go to church anymore. During the Kate's Story interview (with the famously elephantine legs on display), Kate complains that she can't take all those kids to church by herself. Blaming Jon and lying yet again. It's miraculous that she CAN take those kids on free vacations, to Dunkin Donuts, and to New York for photo ops all by herself. Maybe she'd still go to church if the paparazzi hung out there.
