Has Kate's hair somehow eclipsed the gravity of THIS above trainwreck?

It's seriously a disturbing scene.

Halo24 said...

People are starting to see the REAL Katie Irene that GWoP has known for quite a while.

Check out the comments on Yahoo! about the $7,000 hair. For every 50-60 negative comments there will be 1 positive one. VERY fun to read. Plenty of laughs!!

http://shine.yahoo.com/channel/beauty/kate-gosselins-new-hair-extensions-reportedly-cost-7-000-564143/?pg=1#comments

The Kate fan club is getting smaller and Radar seems to be the only place about 10 people post repetitively. (Forgetting BM??) HA!

LOL! Karma is a bitch huh Kate?

emma said...

Why is this woman on the cover of People Magazine? What little respect I had for that magazine is long gone now. This woman will do anything to keep her sorry face in the limelight. I can't wait until her kids grow up and write their tell-all books.

Lillie Mae Acres said...

I am so sick of everyone acting like Kate is beautiful, sweet, and that she was wronged by Jon. Divorces are NEVER one sided, most of the time 50/50. I'm sick of magazines and other big names pouring $$ out to her and on her (I'm sure the new ugly hair was FREE and part of the deal). She has NO talent, no looks, no personality. She's negative, and they both just need to go away and live quiet lives w/ regular jobs. Other large families make it on normal $$.

she looks like an idiot. said...

LMAO @ Kates hair.

That's all.

Brummygirl said...

They were discussing tonight on E.T., that Kate had had *work* done! Botox on face, work on her jugs. Someone on here was recently asking why they do not mention this on t.v....well now they have.
Now all they have to do is work on her personality!!

Miranda said...

I hope TLC used a coupon or there will be hell to pay.

milk is too expensive. said...

I wonder how much organic milk you can buy with $7,000?

Annies said...

You gotta go on dlisted.com and read the comments posted by readers on the People Magazine cover of the new hairdo. I laughed so hard I almost peeed my pants!

Carezee said...

Does anyone else remember the picture of Kate with the blond wig? She was getting in her car in the driveway. Jon was there too. I am wondering if this was a test to see if the kids liked her with long hair enough to pay for extensions for her. I know I am not crazy. It was a horrible wig. Anyone?

Jaden's Mom said...

Kate's new hair looks awful. She looks absurdly ridiculous, yet everyone around her is telling her she looks great. She is living in a delusion that people in the general public still care about her after seeing her true colors.

We don't, Kate. I would be very happy to never see or hear from you again. Go be the hands-on mother you claim to be, and stop spending your time and ridiculous amounts of money on publicity.

Carol in PA said...

I agree with Emma, Khate will do ANYTHING to stay in the limelight. The hair is a mess, actually SHE is a mess.

I guess the Tiger Woods drama took all of her 'publicity' stories out of the news for a couple of weeks, she must have freaked out. So she goes and gets this dreadful weave to get her face on a magazine so we all won't forget her. Sorry Khate.....you're forgotten girl, the 15 minutes has been up a long time ago. Get a job!

Karma said...

I think Kate Dirt's PR team's (thats public relations) strategy of keeping quiet and letting Jon and his college freshman routine distract from the fact that Kate Dirt is a money hungry, talentless leach with ZERO personality only works so long. Eventually she is going to have to speak (Jay Leno debacle) and eventually have to be re-introduced (People's Kate Dirt cover) and the ride will come to a quick halt. It will only take a couple more of these PR nightmares and even Babymama would leave her standing by the garbage can at the overlook at the grand canyon.

________________________________

Yes, I recall those pics. I believe they are on sosugary. There's only a couple on there though.

uneasy said...

Unfortunately, the response to the People cover shows TLC that they can still get a reaction from publicizing Kate. Not necessarily a good one, but enough to ensure ratings on a cable show. She may however have difficulty getting sponsors without the kids or a manufactured wholesome image.

Melanie said...

Just looked at the pic.
Is that a pic of a tup on the dresser? Also, what did the note say?

Im sure they could prove with cameras etc that Hailey entered the apt. But how do we know that he didnt do it himself after to get some attention/sympathy.

Melanie said...

Im afriad. What next will Kate do to stay in the limelight?

PA Midstate Mommy said...

Over on People's website they have posted a video of Khate getting her hair done. Oh my Lord,the screeching, the obnoxious attitude...Yeesh! This woman thinks she is so hysterically witty, I actually find her embarrassing. And that weave looks like a train wreck! It is beyond fake-ishly fake! When she goes to the mirror you get a really good look at the back, and it's unbelievably ugly. I can't believe she spent that much money and time away from her kids on that mess. That stylist is as big a joke to TLC as Jon and Khate.

Gimme summa that hair said...

Jon got hair plugs and Kate got hair extensions. To bad that Kate can't even comb her little girls hair and the nanny has to do it. PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR KIDS KATE!

AtlGa said...

Does anyone else recall that Khate used to say that she kept her hair short because long hair gave her migraines? Guess that wasn't the truth. She really looks silly.

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

Close.

K8 once said her long hair gave her headaches ( which I find ridiculous - I have long, SUPER thick hair and although it can be hot, it never gives me headaches )

K8 then also claimed that Hannie had to have her own room because she has migraines. Now, if Hannie indeed does have migraines, maybe all those harsh studio lights aren't helping ?

To add to the hypocrisy, if K8 gets headaches from long hair, why then, wouldn't she cut Hannie's long hair ?

Gimme Gimme said...

That video of the hair thing was disgusting. How can those people around her stomach that? Squealing and screeching, sarcastic, playing to the audience of 3 or whatever. How could he say she was great....of yeah for the publicity, I forgot. Ughhh....

PutASockInIt said...

Looking at the video on People.com: First, that hair stylist needs to be fired - "biggest celebrity"? KATE?.. Second.. she is a shrew; screaming like a banshee. She is so out of touch. It's all about her hair and it looks like Trailer Trash Barbie.

Brummygirl said...

What a ridiculous performance and yes, it was a performance because the cameras were running.
It looks as though she had this done in a hotel room!
Her hair looked better when she just had the new colour on, now she looks like the Scarecrow from Oz.
"I'm off to see the Wizard".......

AnneMarie said...

Haven't read the above posts yet, but just got back from the market. OMG MY EYES !!!! There isn't enought BLEACH !

The cover of People mag. has KHATE with LONG BLOND Hair extensions, wind blown and sexy (trying to be), chunky highlights in tow, and claiming rebound struggling divorcee!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

What do they think, hair grows on trees?
Well, in Kate's case, I think it once did.

Yeesh - looks like orangutan fur!

Jane in California said...

I just watched a video on ROL (the one showing the cut/color and weaving process). First what struck me - it was done in a hotel room??? Why not in a salon somewhere. I found that so very odd. Especially the part where they are rinsing her hair in the tub in the bathroom!! It's all so hillbilly in a way.

Then the matching pink tops for the three stylists was too chi chi for words. The fawning and fake laughter at everything Kate said was hilarious.

I will say that the initial lightening and color change was done very nicely. If they had stopped there, her new look would have been pretty nice.

But no, they put on those extensions. The color did not match!!! That's the worst of all to me -- how could you color someone's hair and not match it to the color of the extensions you have on hand to put in her hair?

Then they showed the back and it looks like Frankenstein's monster. It looks like a mismatched woven Easter basket up on top of her head.

My favorite part is when she commands the guy not to cut her bangs any further, and he just goes ahead and cuts them shorter and she scowls so hard two deep furrows appear on her forehead!

The color may have been worth what this stylist normally charges, but the weave? Nope, not worth $4,500. Not worth $50.

Janine said...

Did she have a coupon for that hair? It looks bad right after it was finished... It has to be piled under a hat by now. 22 hours of HAIR? (Oh, but she was in constant contact by phone with her 8)
I am still trying to sort out how she and her peeps can in good conscience get support from Jon while keeping him from earning a living (how is any of this helping her kids?) Those kids need to be away from her. I have not been here for awhile, is she getting ready for a dating show?
I am just sick to see this and to see how delusional she is... I didn't care if she worked alone... but this is STILL hurtful to her kids.

Ohio Buckeye said...

Did I just see an ad for HSN that, just for a second, featured K8 saying, "It's Wolfgang Puck!!" ?

The appearance of the woman so excited to meet W. Puck was so brief, I couldn't be sure it was K8, but it looked like it, except that ugly big flap of hair had been toned down a little.

Oh, lordybe, is there no escape?

Ohio Buckeye said...

Karma said, "... Eventually she is going to have to speak (Jay Leno debacle)..."

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

What an incredible difference between K8 G.'s '10 @10' appearance vs. Katie Couric's!

Katie C. was quick-witted, personable, and funny.

K8 G. was, well, just K8 G.

Gosselin and Couric may share the same first name, but the similarities end there.

K8 Gosselin: get a real job and get off tv. You have NO charisma, wit, talent for a TV career.

MessHead Strikes Again said...

Take a look at the video on People website and when she turns around near the end of the video, look at the MESS at the crown of her head!!!

It is going to be painfully obvious that the extensions are there... it looks like Britney Spears' head when her hair grew out to 2 inches and she had those extensions put on.

And I'm not sure, help me out here - could she have BEEN any more dramatic with the screeching and squealing? What is she, a pig being castrated?

Of course, if Kate is going for the trash-head-extension look, then I guess she got what she wanted..... she will be insisting folks only see her from the front, and no camera angles that show the MESS part (that is anything that isn't straight-on frontal).

One more "me-all-me" demand for her contract....

Such a waste of oxygen and press space....

I agree with the poster who said one of our US soldiers should get a makeover instead of a loser like Khate.... actually, I think all returning soldiers from war-zones should get make-overs.... wouldn't that be a wonderful gift for them?

A spa day for every soldier when they return... I can dream - make them Queen and King for a Day... remember that old TV show?

So far, Khate is batting zero on hairstyles. Perhaps she should just shave it off and be gone from this realm. Off you go, little chit... off you go...

Shoshanna said...

Kate spent 20 hrs. getting hair extensions put in?
The only time that shrew has the patience for
20 hrs. of ANYTHING is if it involves *her.*

I wonder if it would take her 20 hrs. to go see
the Statue of Liberty with her poor little kids!

scary said...

The extensions look like a broom. They are unnaturally straight. Well, what is Kate flying around on now?

Meggers said...

Can someone please post a link to the video on people.com? I can't seem to find it and from the comments, it's something I really want to laugh at! :) THANKS!

Fufuss said...

Holey cowish!! If you look closely at some of the blonde extensions, they look like a long-haired goat that was caught in a down pour! That new"do" is sad & pitiful. -Saw a clip of her on TV a couple days ago...she was wearing an "OliverTwist" cap with her locks up under it. Apparently, she doesn't like the new "do" much either.

jasmine said...

Watched the video of Kate getting her hair extensions. Can't imagine waking up to that mess every day and having to deal with it. It probably looks even worst in daylight. No wonder she keeps it hidden under caps. Her other hairdresser must be laughing. Kate should just buy a cheap razor and scissors at Target and let the kids fix her hair.

Meggers said...

Oh and also- If you go to the "Celeb" column on people.com and click on Kate's name, the main pic that comes up shows Kate laughing/screeching with only one earring in her ear. Proof that they photoshop the crap out of this lady!

Kate is 13 said...

Just watched the video clip ( hair extensions)of Kate acting like a Jr.High School girl needing attention.

cma said...

I think the people at People are just using Kate for increased sales to the sheeple, or their own inside jokes. I bet they are sitting at home behind closed doors, laughing themselves silly over this new hair thang! They ought to get her a nose ring to complete the ensemble, better to lead her around by!
Please someone, send Kate a dictionary so she can learn the meaning of words like gullible, laughingstock, idiot, etc. Even words like mother, care, modesty, love...but wait...
oops, I don't think she has comprehension skills. My bad.

jasmine said...

If TLC paid for Kate's $7,000extensions, does she have to claim it on her taxes as a gift? Or does TLC own her hair now also?

snarky mcsnark said...

Putasockinit, regarding the hairstylist commenting that Kate is his "biggest celebrity", I think he was referring to either her ass, her boobs or her head.

Petersen himself said: "I am very happy that as a result of my case the Court of Appeals for the first time in the legal history of California has ruled that a person who is not a relative of minors and who has never met them may still file a petition in the California courts seeking to protect the minors' financial interests if sufficient facts are alleged. This will help protect children in the future."

That looks horrible. Good grief. And she thinks it looks good?? She's more delusional than I thought. And of course, this was 'for the kids' too. Yeah, right.

Zayna said...

That monstrosity of a new look cost $7,000? Bahahahaha.

I'm sorry. I shouldn't laugh, because it's really not funny.

In reality, it's disgusting and I'm so pissed that this is the same woman who only months ago appeared on TV to claim she had only $1000 to pay her bills and feed her 8 children.

How does anyone in their right mind justify that? I know, I know...the answer is right there in the question.

When this is all finally over and I hope to God it's sooner rather than later, I can just hear Katie Irene crying into her pillow, "They used me. They all just used me to make money."

I wonder if the irony will hit her or if she will just blame the children because they didn't fulfill their purpose.

Which was of course, to make HER rich and famous.

PR in PA said...

Ok..I watched the video on people.com because I didn't think the video could be as bad as you all said..well, I was wrong..you're right..it was bad! From Kate shreiking..good grief..you're only getting your hair washed! To the end result. Awful..awful..awful! The hair color doesn't match..it looks like straw and looks like the top is still short...like in the back. OMG..she was so full of herself

The coloring they did on her hair before the extension was nice..all she needed was that chunk of long hair cut short and it would have looked nice.

Just like Jon she has the wrong people surrounding her..telling her she's wonderful and so loved. Girl needs a reality check.

nanb said...

Piers Morgan was on the Today Show with Hoda and had a couple of comments about Jon & Kate.

"They haven't done anything, they weren't very good parents, they were pretty useless as husband and wife..."

It's after the 5 min mark

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

I thought he said "most famous woman in America," kind of like John Wilkes Booth's famous utterance when he said that he would be the most famous man in America. Doesn't necessarily give a positive connotation.

Ugliest hairstyle ever. Don't those guys know that you can't cut blonde hair like that because it shows every single chop mark? It makes the possum cut desirable!

I thought the same exact thing. Why would they put HER in a commercial? Maybe it's not though. We'll have to keep our eyes peeled and check. I sure hope it's not her! No more Kate!
I wrote to People asking why Kate getting extensions was cover worthy. I said in my email that her 15 minutes are up and she is famous for only having sextuplets and riding their fame. Maybe they'll print it. I know we are not the only ones who feel the same way!

yippee gosselin free said...

She got the hair extentions "FOR THE KIDS"! Just like EVERYTHING she does, she did it for them. They 'begged' her to get long blonde hair.

They did.

Really.

Lisa said...

Just when I think maybe this woman will go away, she puts herself out there again. To use a crude phrase that I heard somewhere, Kate is "the turd that won't flush"...gross, I know! I hate the fact that she feels so entitled to fame and fortune. She is like a spoiled child who wants to have their way. Just because you want something bad doesn't mean you deserve it or that you should have it. Just because you want a career in tv doesn't mean that you should have one, Kate. She is like a pit bull....she won't let it go. She lost her marriage over her need for fame. Her children are miserable. Still she doesn't care. She wants to be a superstar and will do anything to try to force that dream to come true. Hell, I want to be Martina McBride, but I don't have her talent, so it ain't gonna happen. I wanna be a Victoria's Secret model, but I am 5 feet tall with a big bootie....ain't gonna happen!!!! Kate, you are a talentless hack. Why can't you accept the fact that maybe it ain't gonna happen for you and focus on your children that you claim to live for???

Can't See Sheep said...

"In the audience I need to see a show of thumbs" This was about how many in the room thought kate should keep her bangs whatever length she was babbling about. Sorry, I did try to listen but when it's kate I have a fight on my hands because I just automatically try to tune her out. There were what, all of 4 or 5 people in the room with kate & she's going on about needing a show of thumbs from the audience, certainly shows how she thinks & it's a little disturbing. What more than one person is an audience? She can't see 5 people as individuals? Wasn't it at the phony vow renewals that she called the people there an audience? She was looking to see where one of Jon's relatives were in the audience or something? No wonder her kids all keep getting lumped together in a mass. The narcissist strikes again.

The hair looked even worse there, it looked like someone started with Heather Locklear's hair & then let a bunch of calves chew & suck on it for about a week. Nasty! She screamed just a little too much when they were washing, she took on like she was allergic to water, but then I remembered she was probably melting some from all that water & so stopped being irritated at her screams & smiled. Wicked witch of the east. In the end someone could have just stapled a shag rug to her head & it probably would have looked similar. She thinks Jon is easily lead & that she's so much smarter, what a dope!

Gimme Gimme said...

If that stylist says KG is his biggest celebrity, then he has deginitely not worked on Angelina Jolie as they said he had. He looks very young to have that many credentials. I don't think he was as enamored with Kate as he made out like he was. All that screeching must have driven him insane. But oh yeah go fetch it Steve was there so she had to put on her little girlie show. Disgusting.

iheartmyhubby said...

I think her PR team convinced her to get extensions, just like the convinced her to grow out her spikes. However, no extensions on hair that is short look natural. Her hair looks like Brit Spears' rat's nest. I think she knows this too because you never see her without that stupid pageboy hat and hoodie.

goawayJandK said...
K8 once said her long hair gave her headaches ( which I find ridiculous - I have long, SUPER thick hair and although it can be hot, it never gives me headaches )
------------------------

I think the long hair thing is like anything else, it depends on the individual. Some of the people in my family can't have hair that covers the back of their neck in warmer months or they over heat & faint, I'm one of them & it sucks (yep, had all the other medical avenues checked out, all kinds of fun tests). My mom & my great grandma couldn't have their's long or they ended up with migraines. From what I've seen it tends to run in families & does skip generations.

Now, if we're talking about kate having headaches, I don't believe it for a moment, or they're not bad enough to put her off having long hair. If Hannie's still having migraines after the studio lights are gone I'd think that her hair should be tried shorter just to see if that made a difference. I mean who wants to see a little kid in that kind of pain, especially if a hair cut could help. Yes, I know, we're talking about kate & it's the nannies who see it, not her. If I was one of the nannies, I'd find a way to help Hannie get her hair cut, bubblegum anyone?

Great I watched that stupid video with kate in it & now I can't get that song out of my head, the one, "If I Only Had a Brain".

I think that the reason the bashing here is mostly confined to Kate is because the media is doing a good enough job of bashing Jon without the rest of us piling on. The thing that is frustrating to me is the fact that she seems to be getting a free pass in the media, while he is being painted as a giant sleeze who is solely to blame for the downfall of their marriage. Kate, on the otherhand, is being depicted as the poor single mother scraping to get by while her awful ex is gallavanting with young girls and living it up. And yes, that is true to some extent, but she is not innocent either. I guess I just feel a tiny bit of sympathy for him because he has become the scapegoat in all of this. Do I think he is blameless? No, I don't. But neither is Kate, no matter how the media and her camp tries to spin it. I just think that this is the place where people vent out of frustration because she constantly comes out smelling like a rose. IMHO...

Because then the world would know that she got extensions. They wanted to keep it a secret until People came out.

melanie said...

I sort of feel sorry for Kate. Everything written about her here is based on what we see on tv or read in magazines and all that information is carefully produced and controlled by tlc etc for maximun profit. A lot of it is down right not flattering and makes her look crazy/silly/contradicting herself/mean

I wonder if she has just decided to ignore public opinion (some stuff is just downright harsh ) and do what her contract says, collect her salary and take care of her kids.


ps not a fan

Miss said...

mamatucci,

Wake up and smell the toast. Kate is pulling antics only in a more subtle way.

Scruffy's Mom said...

Who does she look like? That freak Brett Michaels from Poison.

Nothing on that woman is real anymore. Fake boobs, hair, chin, tan, fingernails, tummy, eyelashes, teeth, personality.

People Magazine Should Do a Warning said...

My ears! My ears! I started watching that video on People that showed Kate getting her hair extensions.

I'm not lying when I say this, but I'm hearing impaired and when I really want to hear something, I have to stick my computer's speakers to my ear to fully hear and understand what is being said.

While I expected the bragging of how good she looked, I didn't expect a grown woman to be screaming and shrieking like a child when they washed her hair or cut her bangs. We all know Kate is loud anyway, but imagine nails being run across a chalk board in your ear. I think I lost a little more hearing because of this. Finally, I couldn't take the noise anymore and had to turn the tv off.

The sad thing is, my ears are literally still ringing from all her high pitched screams and squeals. I bet we'll be hearing another set of screams, but not for joy, in a few months when she has them taken out and sees that she's ruined what's left of that bird nest of a head of hair she orginally had.

Babsie said...

I can't really blame Kate believing she is a celebrity when TLC and so many people treat her as one. In reality we are also treating her as a celebrity everytime we write a post we are acknowledging her importance to us even if it is in a negative way. Kate will not go away until the day we all go away and Kate Gosselin is just a bad memory.......A day when we have to have to think hard in order to remember the chick with no talent and all those children! Who was she? What was her name?

Tracy said...

Jon's faults seem to include being naive and immature. Kate is a hypocrite, among other things, but I can't abide a hypocrite.

Kate pulled her crap for 5 seasons on TV and the 10 years of her marriage. Cut Jon a little slack. He's playing catch-up.

IDModo said...

YippeeGosselinFree said"at least Kate's boyfriend is a decent man, even if he is married". Huh? IMO the two concepts are mutually exclusive. Kate's purse carrier has a wife and family of his own.If he is in fact her boyfriend,how does this add up to any kind of decency? Jon may be seeing younger women, but they are single,and he is not breaking up anyone's home by doing so.
This seems to me to be another example of being able to twist one's values in order to support the insupportable....

Oh "Lisa" --that Saying!!! (the turd...) Yes it is totally disgusting to think about, but SO appropriate when it comes to the mess continually being shoved in to thepublic's faces, of Khate Khate Khate The All-Kate/All-the-TIme channel..etc.
I thankfully hadn't been seeing the G's mugs on supermarket rags for almost a month now...had let my guard down...then BOOM! Assualted by Hate's mug again, yesterday, and the "new hair." Is she attempting to channel Brit now? (not the best choice...) But even BRit has her S88t together more than Hate, IMO, AND a better mom to boot. SErious!
Ugg. I truly am becoming a Pessimist here, and gonna say that she is NOT GOING AWAY.

MickeyMcKean said...

I happen to 100% agree with the above poster who said that people are starting to see the REAL Katie Irene that GWoP has known for quite a while.

This morning on popeater I found the following article which is posted below so people do not have to go to the link and add to the number of clicks:

How Kate Gosselin Can Go Wild in 2010

It all starts with the long hair. Kate Gosselin obviously needed some disposable fun in her life (that's why Jon has all those twenty-something girlfriends) but just getting some detachable long locks isn't going to be enough to spice up this mom of eight's life.

Our experts weigh in on the top ten ways Kate can really shed her inhibitions and let her freak flag fly a little if she wants to be a new woman in 2010.

1. "She could definitely rent out space in those stretched out fallopian tubes," says PopWrap's Ryan Brockington.

2. I won't be surprised to see her in an ad campaign, or taking a strut down the runway for a mass market brand. In fact, I wouldn't even be surprised if she posed for Playboy," says AOL StyleList's Marissa Gold.

3. "She should hit the clubs with Susan Boyle! Those two could tear it up but good. And, I think they could both learn from each other (potential reality show/buddy movie franchise alert!)," says Rachel Sklar, editor-at-large of Mediaite.

4. "Her old 'do' was one butch haircut, so I say she should embrace her inner lesbian. It may make her happier," says "Cult of Celebrity" author Cooper Lawrence.

5. "Mostly her wardrobe needs a nice swift kick in the sweatpants. Kate needs to grab those magazines she graces the cover of, turn to the style tips and grab a pen and paper. Fashion first Kate -- asymmetric last!" Brockington says.

6. "Now that Jon is gone, it might be time to give those kids easier names. I'm thinking the eight reindeer or the seven dwarfs. Let's face it, calling two of them dopey would be fine," Brockington says.

7. "She already started a line of children so she should start a line of children's clothing," Lawrence says.

8. "She should go Mohawk instead of fauxhawk," says Margaret Kelly, grooming expert for Lock & Mane.

9. "A self-referential cameo on '30 Rock' would give her instant cred and it would be hilarious if they pair her as a man-eating TV executive who takes a shine to poor Kenneth. Can't you see her rocking a power suit and making Liz Lemon's life a living hell?," Sklar hypothesizes.

10. "She should star in a VH1 reality show called 'Date My Kate' where Jon picks out her men from a group of guys picked to live in a house and compete for her heart," Lawrence dreams.

Someone wanted a link to the video of Kate's makeover.

Here it is:
Video of Kate's hair makeover

Jen D said...

My email to People:

"Kate Gosselin has done nothing to deserve (yet another) appearance on the cover of your magazine. She gave birth to 8 children and then figured out how to profit from it. How does this make her a celebrity?"

Donna said...

I found this comment on the "Reading Eagle" in RE to an article about the Gosselins. This poster painted a pretty but realistic picture of how much damage the Gosselins have done to their community (then). After reading it myself, I'm astonished at how people see Kate as a martyr:

"Observing the mess---let me help you out....those two ARE stealing. They are accepting speaking fees and "love offerings" at churches; from people who live in trailer houses...because they say that they are having a hard time paying their bills. When in fact, everytime they make an appearance at at church, they church gifts them with money; and guess what? SO DOES TLC!! TLC PAYS them for making personal appearances, because it promotes the show! They steal from churches and church people.

They are feigning a "happy family" and "hardship"; to get free things---and fame. Everything they do is a lie...so that is stealing!

Kate is seen trying to save money by making bulk soup 'for the winter'--while they are busy buying a 1.3 million dollar home! Both things were in the same episode!

Their kids wear donated clothes, while mom is out buying $300 shoes; and dad is buying his girlfriend $400 purses! Kate is seen screaming at Jon to use a coupon, for a shower head, but then they buy a TWO passenger sports car. On the show, they are seen only driving around in that van; but in fact, they have 3 cars too.

They lie and pretend to be good Christians, even renewing their godly wedding vows...when in fact they have an agreement to date other people! Sure they deny it; but they also denied the million dollar mansion and the sports cars too! One thing is for sure, they have not kept the commandment to "honor your parents"; Kate cut them out of their lives. Even after Kates parents watched the twins for months, while Kate was on bedrest with the sextuplets. She cut those twins off from her parents, and denied them from seeing the sextuplets. This was cruel for the kids and the grandparents. She also cut Jon's family out of their lives...except his dad, who was wealthy, and who in fact paid all their bills.

Donna said...

(continued, part 2)
The television show, "Special Delivery" remodelled their house. And Kate was rude and hateful about it. Not thankful at all. Many people worked very hard on that house. So what, if she didn't like the style....she could have been graceful about it. But, she is never graceful.

She said horrible, rude things about the man she bought her dogs from. Mocking him, and saying he talked too much. She said this on air! She did the same to Steve Thomas, who was kind enough to put solar panels on their house.

Kate's parent's church, donated truckloads of clothes and cribs; only to be tossed aside by Kate. They weren't good enough for her! They were not matching clothes, or cribs.

She is ungrateful, rude and has said that society "owes her".

On the show Kate wears modest clothes, but when out and about, she is in leather and mini skirts!

She sells books claiming to be a good mom, but she doesn't even take care of the kids, and doesn't see them for weeks at a time. She never bathed her kids, nor put them to bed...she never played with them; nor allowed them any friends. She is very cruel to her sons. Refusing to allow them to deocrate or eat their 4th birthday cupcakes; while their sisters were allowed to do so. She refused to go on "special days" with ther boys.She made those boys sleep alone on a dark laundry room floor, when they were sick; she didn't go to the emergency room, when the Nanny took one of them there with an injury---which would scare any 4 year old child! She mocks her children; slaps, hits and yells at them; even when they thanked her for the puppies, she said, 'WELL, YOU ARE NOT WELCOME!!!"....she torures them with throwing away their comfort items, and withdrawing the people they love from their lives.

She is rude, hateful, cruel and mean. And her husband allows her to torture his kids, so that he can have money to play. So, THAT is why people hate them!"

Tami said...

If that stylist says KG is his biggest celebrity, then he has deginitely not worked on Angelina Jolie as they said he had.
*******
or maybe he got $1000 extra from TLC JUST to say that on the video! That I would believe.

Tami said...

What I really want to know is why everyone is still bashing Kate. If she did half of the antics Jon has pulled lately, people would be going nuts!

******
Ummm..ok, if you say so. More like she is getting promoted by some high ranking people in the entertainment biz, has all her crap swept under the rug, does NOT have cameras really following her where she goes (other than Target and places like that). They are paying for everything for her because she is their last hope left to hang onto a shred of a reality family that had its 15 minutes of fame expire long ago. That, and she would blab like crazy about al the inside workings of that "reality" show if they cut ties to her! I don't need some tabloid to tell me that she is a bad person like they continuously do with Jon. I can see for myself what kind of awful, selfish, hypocritical, nasty piece of work she is!

Tami said...

Jon has serious emotional problems. At least Kate's boyfriend is a decent man, even if he is married.
*******
What?! Sorry, but how do we know Steve is a decent man?! We know nothing about his personal life. He could be a dog. If he's cheating on his wife with Kate, he is not a decent man. Really, just because he is a bodyguard, etc, does not make him necessarily a great guy.

MickeyMcKean said...

To: TLC

Boy oh boy, Kate's new "do" sure has prompted a lot of negative comments, and not just here on GWoP! I admit I actually went to Yahoo, saw that there was 6,700+ comments on their story, giggled, and then figured I had a life and did not have the time to read each and every comment.

Whereas I'm sure TLC thought it was in their best interest to keep Kate in the public eye so TLC picked up the $7,000 tab because Kate is after all once again on the cover of People (a subscription I specifically did not renew in 2009 due to KG!), did TLC assumed that the general public would have forgotten by now that Kate was recently crying on TV about all the unpaid bills in her purse because she only had $1,000 in her bank account?

Look TLC, I realize that it was wayyyy back in 2009 that Kate pitched her fit about having no money to pay her bills but believe it or not there are people who can still remember these little tidbits, and not all of these people are on this blog but are still "out there".

But even if you were hoping for a global public memory loss about Kate's fake drama, in this current economy there are just not a lot of women - regardless of whether or not they are mothers, single or otherwise - who can relate to anyone going to a stylist who charges $950 for a haircut, $500 for hair coloring and this is BEFORE the $5,000 tab for the hair extensions!

I also won't address the 20 hours that it took to do this one makeover and the required entourage expenses - nanny and bodyguard - that were required in order to do this makeover!

See, us real people in the real world are a little bit more aware these days as to how, when and where we spend our hard earned money from our REAL jobs. Unlike Kate Gosselin, we know money does not grow on trees and even though even I am guilty of splurging on something decadent every now and then, and yes sometimes I splurge just on me, I also do it for others less fortunate.

IMHO if TLC truly wanted a positive PR stunt, I think $7,000 could have been better spent feeding the homeless or helping a family who cannot make their mortgage payments versus on a makeover on just one person in general and Kate Gosselin in particular.

I say this because I am under the impression that Kate does not appreciate a lot of things these days, especially the 8 healthy children she was blessed with in 2000 and 2004. The kicker is I know I am not alone because thanks to TLC a lot of us have seen for ourselves all the evidence on film depicting Kate's true personality.

JMO.

Miss said...

mamatucci,

Wake up and smell the toast. Kate is pulling antics but in a more subtle way. (Not trying to be rude to you)

Yipee Gosselin free,

If one is married and having a affair then they are NOT decent.

MickeyMcKean said...

I hope that Jon's new gf works out for him and regardless of whether or not the reports are true that her family has deep pockets, IF this new gf and Jon hit if off, then I hope that Jon will feel that he can continue to hold firm and not allow TLC to start filming the kids again because he has the love and support of others he loves and cares about.

SAVE THE 8!

Kate said it herself on that ridiculous ROL video: "same girl, different look".

IMO, the only change in Kate is that she's exchanged her possum for a broom!

courtney.davis said...

Those extensions look like straw. It is more than ridiculous. You can see all of her short hair at the top of the extensions. Not to mention that my sister is a hairstylist and she said extensions can cause serious headaches for a lot of people. It seems like she would be concerned about headaches, but then again I think she kept her hair short because Jon liked it long. Not that I like him either, but it just seems like one more thing she wants to throw in his face.

Irene said...

Ok..on this episode of Kate~plus~fake.

I was thinking today in the grocery line about the mop that TLC had put on Kate's head that is worth in a ballpark of around $7,000.

I just have to laugh.

Thanks for posting that Donna.

OMG! I didn't know that TLC paid them for the appearances as well, so they get paid twice for each church appearance & then the people's love offerings on top of that, oh now that's just low & vile, the churches & the people could use that money for far better things. The payment from TLC should have been more than enough & that should have been that. So where the hell is the IRS?

She is ungrateful, rude and has said that society "owes her".
----------------------
It really is long past due for society to step up & show kate exactly what they don't owe her. Honestly kate is not fit to raise these children, she's absolutely wretched to them & they shouldn't have to be hungry, bruised & dirty to merit a visit or two from Child Services. I'm glad that the tide seems to be turning on kate.

What next are they going to try & get the public to forget that she has 8 kids so she can be a swinging single? They really do seem to want people to have amnesia when it comes to kate.

Note to Khate, you have 8, count'em 8, kids at home under the age of 10. Ditch the wooden spoon, get some therapy, then go HOME.

Everytime I see you in public it reminds me what a NotSAHM is. Pathetic, greedy, and kids at home waiting for a mother---

Brummygirl said...

"Say your name if you heard what I said"...stated Kate about what she says to her children. The tone and face had changed to ugly when she said that, then laughed about it afterwards. The stupid new Sheeple a.k.a. groupies at the hair transformation, joined in the laughter.
It just proved that she has the Jekyl side for the kids and Hyde for the audience.

Brummygirl said...

I came across some youtube videos of Kate and Jon which included their home videos of before their marriage and of the actual *first* wedding and then on to the present. I will not post the link in case this results in more hits for them unless asked.
I felt so sad that two people who once supposedly loved each other could eventually do so much damage.
Viewing these videos, it is definitely Kate who has changed almost without recognition. She cried at her wedding and has continued to do so on every occasion she deemed necessary.
I wonder just what plans she had on that wedding day, did she orchestrate their future or did fate intervene?
She was certainly not the cold fish we see now. Did she change or was that for the cameras even then? If she did change, what took her on that path?
In the words of Robbie Burns:
"The best laid plans of Mice and Men, often go awry!" (Not the Scottish translation!!)

Worried for the 8 said...

Did you all notice on the clip when Kate was getting her hair extension that she was imitating how she talks to her kids? That was scary to say the least. But even more scary was that she seemed proud of how she talks to them. So worried for them.

cheapo extensions said...

I just had to watch that video of kate getting her extensions again because it is just so darn funny.
Looking at the back of her head is like looking at a hay stack. She looks like a FOOL! I think TLC planned this. They want to make a fool out of her because it is good for ratings.
I love when the hairstylist says "it will look good when we put some wind on it". I guess Kate can only look good on windy days! LOL! She's so long winded maybe she can take care of that herself. Her new hair style smells like someone broke wind.

Charles said...

Surely, surely Kate is not being invited to do her dog and pony show at churches any more, is she?

I can't imagine any church booking her for any appearance when their dirty laundry has been hung for everybody in the US to see.

Does anybody have any info?

No offence taken at all. :-) Rereading my post, I realize what I wrote could very well sound offended, it wasn't meant to be that way so I do apologize most sincerely to you for that.

The "it sucks" was more my frustration of having dealt with the fainting & it being a minor irritant like a pebble in your shoe. The headache thing isn't something I've heard many talk about unless they have it, so no reason for you to believe it was true, on top of which hearing it claimed by kate, who's claimed so much & well, she's not exactly a font of truth or remotely credible on anything.

She's Too Old For That Look said...

Melanie said...
RIght. For someone who said long hair gave her headaches and migraines, how on earth did she agree to this/want this.
--------------
I'm sure it'll be gone soon. She probably didn't pay for it so it's no skin off her nose and she's too accustomed to wash & go hair, even though it was weird hair. She probably won't go the frustrated route as Britney did but it'll be back to short soon. If she'd keep that new, nice blonde but let it grow out normally, like to chin length, I think it could be attractive but as someone said on the previous Free Discussion, she'd probably think it was too ordinary and she seems to want to stand out and call attention to herself.

Callie said...

As much as I would like to snark about what Khates new mop looks like.The price and how ironically it came about at the same week i'm getting mine cut for Locks Of Love.Nope what bothers me the most now is what is actually going to happen when she goes home to those beautiful kids.Before even getting out of her ride she'll be screeching as only Khate can" Don't touch my new gorgeous hair i sat 20 hrs for or you might pull it out! Kids remember now we don't hug around the neck either as my new look is to precious to me! As snarky as that sounds sadly it's more close to being the truth! Sigh..

lifeoriley said...

PA does not have laws protecting children in the entertainment industry as such, however there are laws and regulations regarding children performers and where they may not perform and hours after which they cannot work. For instance, filming the children after a certain hour at night would not be permitted, etc. However, PA has not yet enforced the laws it does have on the books regarding the Gosselin children--so I'm glad that their father, at least for now, has stopped the filming.
As for Kate--what is her talent? She can only manage to polarize people--that's the only thing that is keeping her in the media right now. She is not likeable, IMO. She is not witty and has little insight. TLC is scrambling to find something for her that does not involve the children or her berating Jon. Whatever show Kate gets, it will fail after the hype and controversy is over. People already are sick of her.
Heck, I'm sick of many people on TV now. For the most part, what's offered on TV is a compendium of crap. I'm sick of reality shows, "competitions" and such. Kate better think of the long-term, big picture. She's not going to be the next Oprah or Barbara Walters.

ABadViewofKate said...

To anyone who has yet to view the video of the extentions - I warn you DO NOT use headphones - and turn the volume down.

She is an idiot. Sorry, but 20 hours away from my kids and $7,000?

My 6 kids are near grown [4 are already out of the house] and I still hate being away from them. And I NEVER had to say "If you heard what I said, say your name."

How stupid is she? I have blocked TLC on our cable - I will never even pick up, let alone read, a copy of PEOPLE and I am pretty much done with this site, no offense, but it just feeds the monster.

And the monster is Kate.

MickeyMcKean said...

I forgot to say earlier that when I watched the video ... the part where the stylist said that he had a hard time convincing Kate to cut her bangs ...

I personally think she was relunctant to allow him to cut her bangs because she knows it is so much easier to hide an earpiece :)

Gimme Gimme said...

Kate and her alleged boyfriend have a lot in common..they are both parents of children who not blessed with their presence. Their alleged affair also began when Kate (an alleged mother of 8) was very much married. I have a teenage son who doesn't have his father active in his life and I know how it affects him.

Doris said...

That wretched succubus Kate would be gone from public consumption in short order IF her family, dumped friends, ex-TLC employees would for once take the high road and speak out about what they have seen and know.

These people are the missing link. Those children need for them to speak out.

If those groups of people ever banded together and got some legal representation it would be over for TLC and that thing they call Kate.

If Kates family or friends truly cares for her, for her children or for Jon, they need to step in and put a stop to this travesty.

readerlady said...

@yippee gosselin free

Jon was a decent person when Khate got him in her clutches. He was still a kid - barely 20 - with little sense of responsibility, no ambition, and was spoiled by his parents, but he was still basically a decent person. He still is, at core. He just needs to find that part of himself again. Right now, he's stuck in his early 20's emotionally. He needs to be left alone to work through his problems and grow up once and for all. Unfortunately, he's floundering, getting bad advice from everywhere, and latching onto anything he thinks may be a lifeline. And Khate and TLC's continued hounding of him doesn't help matters He needs someone to take him in hand, knock some sense into him, then provide the emotional support he needs to do some hard work on himself. I keep hoping his brothers or his mother will step up and do it.

I have no idea what picture you are referring to. I assume it's one of Hailey. ITA that she's a freak and an opportunist, but she was never around Jon's kids. AFAIK, she never met them. That's one big thing in Jon's favor. And if Stevie boy is carrying on with Khate, and IMO that's pretty much a given, he's no decent man. Decent men don't mess around on their wives, nor choose their "employer" over their family.

"That wretched succubus Kate would be gone from public consumption in short order IF her family, dumped friends, ex-TLC employees would for once take the high road and speak out about what they have seen and know."

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

I'm still curious as to why the term "succubus" is used to describe her. In European folklore, a succubus is a female demon who descends on men to have sex with them while they sleep. Does this profile fit Kate?!!

Midnight Serenade said...

"She is an idiot. Sorry, but 20 hours away from my kids and $7,000?"

How would this be any different than being away from them for days (and weeks at a time) for her publicity and filming appearances? And she didn't pay for the extensions -- TLC did! Just another routine day in the life of Kate.

Midnight Serenade said...

"I guess Kate can only look good on windy days! LOL! She's so long winded maybe she can take care of that herself. Her new hair style smells like someone broke wind."

Except that we've had windy days here, and she covers up her head with a cap, so the "looks good in the wind" theory doesn't work! LOL!

Somebody's Nana said...

Other than the fact that Steve is in close proximity to Kate because of his job, there is no evidence to even support the idea that she is having an affair with him. I'm not too concerned about her reputation, but I think it is horrible to slander a man who is only doing his job.

As for the allegations from Jon that she was having an affair, I tend to take that with a grain of salt because I think it is only to "justify" his behavior. IMO, he has shown that in many ways he is as narcissistic and immature as she is by his behavior. He flits from one girl (yes, girl) to another like a 14 year old, and in many ways, this behavior is just as damaging, if not more so, to his beautiful daughters who will look to him to see what kind of man to look for. His sons are likely to emulate his behavior. The kids are lacking in the parental department on both sides, sadly.

If Jon's behavior had been a little more mature and circumspect without running to the first girl he sees whenever he's "alone", then I might tend to believe him. As it is, not a chance. They both lie.

Gimme Gimme said...

I also like the way Kate said she "might cry--imagine that" if her hair turned out long and blonde and beautiful as he said. What a cad. She is implying that she can cry on command. I have never seen anyone in my life so full of herself. What does she see that no one else seems to see?

If Jon's apt. was ransacked that badly with the knife and all the other disturbing stuff then why is Jon and Hailey and their lawyers meeting to discuss this via the media outlets? I read that last week that the lawyers were trying to get them to work things out. Shouldn't something that serious be handled by police and not gossip sites? I think they are inventing more and more drama to keep the Gosselin name out there. Sorry don't believe it for a second.

sunny1 said...

I have never posted anywhere before and was hoping that the whole J&K debacle was over only to see the latest People magazine at the check out counter so I had to come back to this site to vent. I've watched J&K+8 since the very first show and like so many I feel like I was totally duped by TLC and J&K. Kate has constantly shown herself to be a total hypocrite on so many levels, it amazes me she can look herself in the mirror. The "hair" related issue that I have had for a while is this... Kate had brown hair in the beginning and her 8 kids all have dark brown/black hair so then why did she have to go blonde to make herself look as different from them as possible? This newest hair is even blonder...how must Mady and Cara feel?...they probably don't even know that their Mom would be brown-haired if not for all the dye-jobs. To me it's a slap in the face to her very own children that she doesn't want to have the same hair color or even close to it...it's like she doesn't want to look anything like them at all and I think that alone will effect their self-esteem. The destruction of this family is so sad and I do think TLC could have changed the course of all the Gosselins lives by realizing the damage they were doing by enabling Kate's ego and sense of entitlement instead of egging her on to behave even worse...Kate's and TLC's behavior is dispicable to me because it has truly destroyed a once "happy" home. John just seems like a lost soul reacting to circumstances that have pushed him to the edge.

Chris said...

In reading the comments about Kate and the latest version of her hair, all I can think to say is: What on earth were they thinking?
To do that much work on someone's hair in a hotel room, of all places, is unthinkable. If anything had gone wrong the liability exposure would be horrendous. For a licensed hairdresser be a part of something like that and then to brag about it is horrible. I'm sure that all states have regarding where hair can be done professionally and to call attention to the fact that you broke those laws is stupid. Well, as they say "stupic is as stupid does".

Natalie and Abigail said...

Jon. Jon, Jon, Jon, Jon, Jon. What ARE you doing?

Seriously, man. Either date someone your own age or at least in the same decade. What is he thinking? Better question...what are the women thinking? How in the world is Jon a catch? He has no job. He's being sued from his last job. His ex-wife is on a smear campaign. And, oh, he has 8 kids. ??????

silimom said...

First what struck me - it was done in a hotel room??? Why not in a salon somewhere.

****

Because then the world would know that she got extensions. They wanted to keep it a secret until People came out.
* * *

I guess that's right. I also think it's because Kate wanted a free hotel room for the week-end, and she's probably the reason it supposedly took 20 hours instead of a more normal say, five hours. Doesn't the stylist have his own salon, or friends with a salon? Most salons are closed on Sundays and Mondays - seems like they could have rented out a salon for a full day when it would normally have been closed.

But I am sure that didn't suit Kate and her grandiose style. I wonder if she insisted on being driven to and from by limo too?

Midwest Mom said...

Kate could put an eye out with those things if she turns around too fast.

The hair extensions, I mean, not the boobs....although, on second thought......

Cat shrills said...

Kate sounded like a cat when a cat gets wet.

Irene said...

Maybe Kate would let me borrow that hair to mop up the mess she just made.

TLC's website where the show Jon & Kate is just loaded down with all things about Kate's hair. That video is so Kate screaching, cackling like a $20 hooker on a Pretty Woman set thinking she is actually gonna get to the other side & break through.

Maybe now that Jay Leno's show is cancelled he can take Kate & her hair on tour.

---
And isn't it also illegal? At least in some states, both the cosmetologist and the site have to be licensed. So, while I can help a friend with a root-touch-up in her bathroom, a licensed hairdresser is not allowed to do work on clients outside a legit salon. I know there are a lot of "housecall" hairdressers in NYC, but is it fully legal?

Also, have they heard of this sophisticated device known as a dropcloth? Could you imagine being the maid who opened the door on all that hair on the carpeted hotel room floor? How many vacuum cleaners gave their lives for Kate's extensions?

Also, her getting extensions makes no sense. Especially after they colored and washed and blew dry her regular hair, you could see that the short back could grow out quite nicely, with a few shaping trims, by next fall. Her hair is healthy and thick in those shots--it looks horrible post-extensions.

All the hairdresser needed to do is to turn the big flap into bangs, take away her spiking hair gel, and she's on the road to hair recovery.

Ah, but she doesn't want the twists, rockiness, sharp hills that characterize this and more serious kinds of recovery. She likes the straight six lane highway with new pavement and a landscaped meridian.

Canadian Mom said...

How disgusting is it that all that hair was left to fall on the bare floor...of a HOTEL ROOM someone else will eventually use?

Vacuuming wouldn't pick that all up...*shiver*

JJ in WA said...

Did you notice at the end of the video she only said "I don't know what to say" which in Kate speak is I hate it-she had the same ungrateful response to almost every freebie she received. She wasn't gushing "I Love It" which would be the response you would expect from any normal person that appreciated what they had just done for her (even though it looked awful because her hair was just too short)

I see nothing has changed-she is and will always be a shrew.

yippee! Gosselin free said...

Ok, okay, okay!....I stand corrected. Thank you all for smacking me down about my comment that Steve is a "decent" man....you are all most correct, and I was horribley wrong!

A "decent" man is NOT a paid escort; is NOT an adulterer; and does not live off his girlfriend's children's money.

Please all. Forgive me for saying such a stupid thing; and accept my most hearty thanks for the correction!

Although I am gosselin free, I do like to check in here every once and a while to see what is happening. But, after coming here and reading about the hair video, I am ashamed of myself for watching it. /that is 6 minutes of my life that I will never get back again....bless her heart, Kate is so silly. Thinking that those people were there for HER, and that they cared about how she looked...for some odd reason, maybe Eileen O'neil, like Jon, likes long blonde hair...I don't know but for some reason those stylists were HIRED to make her hari thus...they didn't care about her! They want to make money off her. And it looks so horrible! Goodness, perhaps if a real stylist; one who actually works at a salon, not rinsing hair in a tub; a real professional could have done a better job, and used real hair, instead of synthetic hair...I bet poor Kate is crying now...her bangs are gone, and her hair looks like the hair of a barbie doll that has been at the bottom of the toy box for quite a long time!

yippee gosselin free said...

Yeah, the hair WAS just thrown on a hotel room floor...and we all know how DIRTY Kate says hotel rooms floors are! She thinks they are dirtier than the gas station lot. Tell me, did she have shoes on her feet, in this hotel?

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

Except for once, she was right. The new do was obviously horrendously horrendous, the cameras were rolling, she couldn't bite the hand that feeds her (TLC) by shrieking, "Oh my God, this is horrendsouly horrendous!!", but she's no actress so she couldn't pretend to be thrilled with it. So "I don't know what to say" is open to interpretation: she could be speechless with delight--or horrified beyond words. Given the fact that she's only appeared in public wearing a hat since the new look was revealed, I'm going with horrified beyond words.

Am I dreaming....or are they? said...

I am dismayed at the ridiculous behavior of these two so-called-parents. Is this even believable??? I've heard of many "conspiracy theories", but I'm left wondering.

Jon and new girl.....again? Since Christmas, he has found his new love, Morgan, and cannot leave her side. Has anyone even seen pictures of them together (except the poor photo-shopped pic of them in a car)? If this is really true, does he have family or friends who care enough to save him from himself? Is this an example of a father who loves his children?

Will Kate love her children enough to take them places without a camera crew? $7000 on hair?! I don't care who paid for it, what about those 8 faces? *broken heart*

Can this really be happening?

Actually, my Barbie doll has been at the bottom of a toy box for several decades and looks much better than that synthetic straw that was woven into Kate's head.

Somebody's Nana said...
Other than the fact that Steve is in close proximity to Kate because of his job, there is no evidence to even support the idea that she is having an affair with him. I'm not too concerned about her reputation, but I think it is horrible to slander a man who is only doing his job.
------------

Thank you for saying this. I completely agree (and with the rest of your post about Jon - he gets too much of a sympathy vote here for my liking)

It has always bothered me that this rumour (the Steve one) are continually spread on this site written as fact when there really is NO evidence of this. Jon had nothing but suspicions which came out only when his behaviour went downhill.

There are no photos or credible reports of an affair occuring between the two. This site is usually so good with only critisizing things that we have seen (Kate's horrible behaviour/lack of parenting, Jon's verbal diarrhea and lack of common sense, etc) so it's frustrating to read so many people truly believing something that there is little basis for.

Same with little hints that she's a lesbian (???? Why?) and/or is with Eileen. It's bordering on ridiculous.

goawayJandK said...

yippee:

Even though I agreed with the responses to your original comment, I kinda understood what you were trying to say.

Some people think that Jon "is the better parent"," loves his kids" and "seems like a nice guy" but forget that he was involved in the begging and scamming right from the beginning and he agreed to exploit his kids from the beginning.

That said, I STILL (why? I don't know) am still holding out a tiny bit of hope that Jon really is just stoooopid and really wants the best for his kids.

That was my thought too--that she didn't like it at all. She was definitely underwhelmed! I'll bet that is why she is hiding under hats now. She will eventually take it off to reveal she is back to short hair and hope everyone forgets the extension-gate!

cottagequeso gal said...

OH........MY.......GOD I just saw the video of this moron getting her weaves. First off, has this woman not matured beyond her middle-school years? How insipid and shallow and cheesy can she get?
The result is absolutely horrific. I paid $150 for my extensions 4 years ago and I'm telling you, mine looked MUCH MUCH better. What the hell is up with that chopped look in back AGAIN? Ted should NOT be proud of his work, no way.
Khate, you are too hagard looking to pull this off. Until you get in shape, lose your chin(s) and get rid of your swollen appearance, you really shouldn't even consider trying to look hot. Cause you're not.

tallblonde said...

I think Kate's hair looks natural and really pretty - in a Kim Zolciak (Real Housewives of atlanta) kind of way..... ;-)

rural mom said...

Wow, the back of that weave is awful,no wonder Kate keeps it covered under hats and hoodies. TLC is definately trying to find things about Kate to make people talk, cause the woman herself is not conversation worthy.

T$$$ said...

Do you know what I thought about when I saw the hair extensions? I'm assuming it is "real" hair and that just a few years ago, Kate and Jon were visiting St. Judes and talking to children who have no hair do to their illness. How sad is that -- ? Again, I don't know why, but it's the first thing that I thought of. They are such selfish people.

Rose said...

Ugh, People Magazine. Why, oh why, do you keep feeding this woman's ego with elaborate cover shoots? It needs to stop! Kate is not talented. She is not a "survivor". And she is certainly not "manning the ship" with her family, as she claimed in the actual article. Kate, my dear, let me tell you what "manning the ship" actually means, at least in the context of divorced parents such as yourself. It's being an adult and handling your kids yourself without nannies and helper girls catering to your every need. It's about not begging for people's sympathy or using your ex-spouse's mistakes to make yourself look like a poor victim who needs to completely "start over" in her life. It's about holding down an actual job, not one that allows you to gloat at your own reflection through the mirror and television screens while people fawn over you, provide you with personal makeover, and give you a whole new hair-do, all while you cry and moan about having "money issues". If you've got money issues, Kate, then I'd love to know how you're financing that million dollar wardrobe and royal treatment for yourself. Really, I'd love to know.

Ah, yes, and the Gosselin kids will be starting therapy in a couple of weeks...a "lovely" woman will come to their house and work with them, because of course, Kate's not gonna bother giving her children any kind of help unless someone comes out to the McMansion and takes care of it for her. And the reason they need to be in therapy is???? Well, intelligent people know the real answer, but Kate's excuse is Jon, Jon, Jon. The kiddies are grappling with the absence of a parent, and it is so terribly hard on them. I have no doubt that that's part of it, but Kate wants us to believe it's the ENTIRE problem. Their acting out and exhibiting emotional issues have nothing to do with the cameras, the invasion of all privacy, and the fact that Mommy cares more about how she looks than what her children are going through. No, no, no, folks, it has nothing to do with any of that, at least not if you're talking to Kate about it.

She can't get through a single sentence without using "I" or "me". It's physically impossible for her. She is hoping that "opportunities will arise" for a new show for her, because she needs to work and "man the ship" by herself. Apparently, she's pretty darn certain that the new show is going to work out, because she certainly isn't showing any signs of looking for a back-up plan, in other words (cough, cough), a REAL JOB. Kate wouldn't know a real job if it hit her in the face, and she definitely wouldn't accept one if she has any say in the matter, because then she wouldn't be able to play dress-up for the cameras, wear pathetic hair extensions, and listen to obsessed Kate wannabes call her "beautiful" and "a courageous woman".

Sorry, that's all I can stand to write for now. I'm ready to vomit as it is. Too much Kate at one time has that effect on a person!

She is evil said...

Regarding the "lovely" therapist coming to the Orphanage: anyone else find this weird? I think one of the reasons that most therapists see patients in their office is to establish that they are in charge, and to be respected and listened to. Not a problem for most people seeking help, but Kate? This poor therapist will be yet another in a long list of peons for Kate to domineer. Do you think Kate will allow those kids to speak freely? Will she listen to the therapist when she tells her to spend more time with the kids, to stop bashing their father, to not rely on servants to care for the kids, to stop hitting them? Etc? I predict that therapist is out of there in less than four sessions, if indeed there is a therapist.

fidosmommy said...

It's been said here many times before in numerous ways:

You can transform your outer appearance, but if you don't have a loving heart, you're still an ugly person.

Kate, please find someone who can help you transform your heart.

they don't want you, Kate said...

I'm so sick of hearing about Kate's money woes. So she has a lot of debt...and implies it's all jons fault. Well, how come the busty boob can't go two days without shopping? And for a woman with such a large family, why does she walk out of target with only a couple of items? I have two kids and routinely leave target with an overflowing basket. It's a great store, with great prices on staples like cleaning products plus there's always something cute in the clothes section or in the homewares section to tempt you. Personally I think the wench is just buying goodies for herself and is hoping for an endorsement deal from them, as well as DD and Starbucks. Good luck, Kate. Maybe they're looking for a vapid, vain, plastic bitch to represent them

Brummygirl said...

I laughed this afternoon as I watched the old movie "The Bodyguard" and there was Whitney Houston sporting the same hairstyle which Kate wore in her home movies of about that time.
Now I wonder if this was Kate's favourite movie!!
I am not totally buying into the theory about Steve and Kate having an affair, but I bet she thinks she has her own Kevin Costner on hand to guard her against *all* of her crazy fans. :)

Ohio Buckeye said...

@She is Evil: "Do you think Kate will allow those kids to speak freely?"

Let's hope Katan gives those kids more latitude to have private counselling (w/o her present) than she gave them at the gym, where she insisted she HAD to remain within arm's (and camera's) reach, despite ALL other moms being denied this.

---------------------------------
I fear we're seeing lives in pieces, strewn across the tracks of a runaway, crashed train. Family in the background...perhaps they've given up with two "adults" who refuse to listen to anyone. We see what we see and all we can do is surmise, never coming up with anything good for the kids, that's for sure. It's incredibly sad to witness self-destruction in action, especially when children are involved. Maybe all the more gut-wrenching when you stop to consider how it could all have been so different. This has all begun to upset me 'way too much again.

Kate Is Going Nowhere said...

"ABadViewOfKate" said, "How stupid is she? I have blocked TLC on our cable - I will never even pick up, let alone read, a copy of PEOPLE and I am pretty much done with this site, no offense, but it just feeds the monster. And the monster is Kate."
------------------------
I take my mom to physical therapy and there's always a pile of PEOPLE magazines in the lobby. I thumbed through one and thought, "how could I have ever liked this magazine; it's just another rag." And I'm with you: I took TLC off my channel line-up a long, long time ago...specifically over Jon & Kate Plus Eight...and I truly don't miss a thing from that tacky channel.

Can I just segue to something? It was either on the other Free Discussion or this one when commenters were talking about Dog The Bounty Hunter. I've tried to stop watching all reality television but, you know, you start surfing and the channels flip by and something catches your eye. I think this Duane Chapman and his wife and it seems even his adult children have suffered some really hard knocks. They probably don't even have it all together even today...who knows? (I believe he lost some viewers over a racial slur for which he has tried to make amends.) But, gotta say, sometimes I like to watch him get the bad guys. He seems to have heart, as does his wife. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I see people here, and it sure seems genuine unless I'm terribly gullible and naive, who are at least TRYING to improve their lives, keep a tight family unit, do good, live better and speak truth. I see humility. This is what we don't see with Jon and Kate...well, Kate in particular. Arrogance and smugness don't light me up. While I still hold out a wee bit of hope for Jon, Kate is a lost cause when it comes to looking at herself, isolating what is bad and what is good, and making an attempt to grow as a human being in a good way for herself and her children. Just my opinions, of course. A person's got to be able to acknowledge mistakes, vow to correct, move on and improve behavior. Otherwise, it's like running in place and going nowhere. I repeat, Kate is going nowhere.

IDModo said...

As someone who has been a therapist with children for 33 years, I am intrigued by "a lovely woman" coming to the Gosselin home to provide therapy for the children. IMO if this therapist does a thorough assessment of the children and family, as she should before therapy is embarked upon, she would need the facilities of her office or a clinic to do this adequately. Therapist's offices are set up with specific toys and expressive materials for children to use; it would be difficult to carry all the things needed to provide a good assessment for 8 children along to their home.Also children need a neutral place where they feel safe and not influenced by others for therapy to be a success;how this could happen in the McMansion, the scene of much family trauma, is beyond me!It is also important for the therapist to meet with both parents separately- is Jon going to be allowed to do this? Where I used to work (I am retired), we would never see a family this large without involving several therapists;children need to know that a therapist is "theirs" and not a tool of their parents, and when a therapist is doing both jobs by herself it is almost impossible to maintain the objectivity and confidentiality needed.
The therapist should also be independent and not financed by anyone who has a financial stake in the children's welfare. There are probably excellent Children's Mental Health facilities in their state with the experience to do a good job. My guess is that Kate and TLC will not be using them because their therapists might behave in an ethical and impartial way...Yep, I'm cynical, all right!

Can't See Sheep said...

Midnight Serenade said...
I'm still curious as to why the term "succubus" is used to describe her. In European folklore, a succubus is a female demon who descends on men to have sex with them while they sleep. Does this profile fit Kate?!!
---------------------

They do a bit more than that, Succubi draw energy from men to sustain themselves, often until the victim becomes exhausted or dies. kate pretty much sucks the life & joy out of everything not just men, so maybe she's some mutant succubus or something. In that way I think of kate as a succubus, she's so damn draining, sucking life & joy out of so much & there tends to be nothing positive left in her unpleasant wake.

They do a few other things as well but I am really, really trying to shorten my posts. The wiki has a decent entry on them. If you want more than that look them up under mythology, there are a few sites that are really good, sorry, don't have the names on hand.

Vanessa said...

Wow wow wow!
You can bet that video footage will be on her new show. Why else would she mention "new show, Clean Slate Kate" all in one breath? And who the hell were all those people? No wonder she has an over-inflated sense of herself, could they have kissed her butt anymore?

What a freaking mess of a hairdo! That stylist was on one of the morning shows this week (google it/youtube) and couldn't stop gushing about her and gushing about his wonderful work!

And how many times does a person need to go to Target in one week?
Why the hats?
She probably can't style her new doo by herself, that's why!! The back looked like a mess when she just got it done, imagine what it looks like now after sleeping on it (and we know how much kate loves her sleep) It must look like a rat's nest.

Makeovers are a great thing to see on tv, but only for those truly deserving.

ChiMama said...

I've read this forum and enjoyed it for quite some time, but the most recent PEOPLE cover brought me out of lurkdom! :) I just wanted to share with you all the following portion of an email I sent to People magazine earlier today (I am a subscriber). This portrays exactly how I feel about Ms. Gosselin and her behavior -- those poor kids! It's gone beyond sad . . .

Dear PEOPLE Editor,

I was VERY MUCH enjoying the recent absence of Kate Gosselin from your magazine -- both in the inside editorial and especially the cover. I find NOTHING about her admirable, nor do I sympathize with her "tragic" plight as "single mother." She is a wannabe celebrity, nothing more, whose 15 minutes of fame is at 14.5 minutes and counting (I HOPE!). Your very prominent magazine giving her a continual forum for earth-shattering news like hair extensions (that cost more than 5k and took 20 hours -- away from her "suffering" children -- to complete) is NOT "news" I'm interested in. To me, it is trivial, self-aggrandizing and displays such a lack of awareness and sense of priority on her part that it angers me -- and I don't even personally know Kate or her children.

I feel very strongly about this issue and have a very negative impression of Ms. Gosselin -- she in no way 'sells' a magazine for me. Quite the opposite.

I truly enjoy your magazine -- the TV/movie/book/music reviews, the feature stories that 'go behind' big news stories (i.e. Capt. Sully), and most especially the inspiring features about people triumphing over REAL tragedy or doing good for others. I am a subscriber, so I couldn't 'refuse' to buy this issue, but if I were a newsstand reader I most assuredly would have. That being ssaid, if you continue to give Kate Gosselin such an unwarranted platform to keep her "fame" alive in the future, I will not be renewing my subscription when it runs out in July 2010.

Somebody's Nana said...
Other than the fact that Steve is in close proximity to Kate because of his job, there is no evidence to even support the idea that she is having an affair with him.

Although most of the tabloid reports about the affair are unsubstantiated, there are several reliable first-hand reports of their behavior together. There was a radio personality (in Michigan, I believe?) who personally saw them holding hands in a hotel lobby. Others who have seen them at Kate's events have noted that they acted very familiarly.

I would not say that there is NO evidence of an affair, although there may not be overwhelming evidence.

When I first heard the rumor, I didn't believe it, mainly because I couldn't see what Steve could see in Kate. However, I have come to believe it to be true, as I have heard various reports, have seen her actions around him, and have seen how she cast Jon aside about the same time as she started getting close to Steve. Even if there is no affair, their behavior together does not befit married people.

I don't think you're cynical at all, IDModo -- I think you've hit the nail on the head. And, as a therapist yourself, you have more insight than the rest of us as to this supposed Gosselin therapy fiasco. I, too, was suspicious about a therapist doing house-calls -- how can this insure that the children are free to express themselves, away from the controlling Uterus?

I think you've called it: Kate and TLC have hired a therapist who will report back that the kids "are fine;" "the show did no damage;" IN FACT, "the kids miss the crew SO much, as a therapist I recommend re-starting filming -- for the kids' mental health of course." No doubt this therapist is on TLC's payroll. Those poor kids. WHO is their real advocate??????

And there were three people sitting there and she said "People in the audience..vote if you want shorter bangs".

Yes, Kate, the world is your "audience" and we all are eager to "vote" about your appearance. I vote thumbs waaaaaaaaaaay down.

Nicole said...

Sorry in advance if anyone has already posted something to this effect, I tried to skim through all the comments but I might have missed it..

I wore my hair super short for a long time because when it grows out its very thick and has a really heavy wave/curl to it. If I even grow it past chin length i start getting migranes so it is quite possable for someone to suffer from migranes due to hair.

HOWEVER, I have also had hair extentions and the braids necessary to put them in pull your hair sooooo tight (if done correctly) that your head throbs for days and can really give you a migrane.

So why would she pay 7,000 dollars for something thats going to give her a migrane if she claims to suffer from them with natrual hair? Is she just showing off that she can spend 7,000 dollars on something that is not only unnecessary, but has a negitive effect on her health?

Also, anyone who Ive known who suffers from migranes because of an issue with hair has generally agreed that its mostly due to the weight of it.. Hannah's hair seems to fine and light to really cause migranes no matter how long, so if anything i say it's definately the cameras and lights that are bothering her.

Didnt mean for this comment to be so long but i had to finish the thought! lol

Kathryn said...

Vanessa, I couldn't agree with you more! While watching the hair extension video I was thinking that Khatie had better be wearing sweatpants - all the more easier to pull down so that her groupies could repeatedly kiss her ass. Who WERE these people?? Hired actors?? Oh, and the biggest buttock kisser of all time, Ted himself. Forget it Ted, you suck...
And you too Steve - if you are in fact shagging the queen herself, then OMG, you are one desperate man.

Exactly. This is just one other T.L.C. scam. Those children will never see an independent consultant for fear of them dropping the ball.

What is going to happen to the child who grabs, pulls, or gets something sticky on the weave?

K8 never lets the kids get that close to her, nothing to worry about.

Here are my thoughts on Kate and the boobyguard, Steve. From an early age, it appears Kate planned out her life. She clearly has contempt for her younger years -- you never have heard her once saying anything nice about her childhood. The rest of us have childhood memories we like to remember and share -- not Kate. Somehow, at a young age, she looked at her life and said "this stinks and I'm going to do better."

She is smart in a low-down cunning sort of way. She went through a series of boyfriends, selected for what they could provide in flashy material things (like a sporty car, etc.) Jon Gosselin was in the wrong place at the wrong time, Kate spied him and decided he was her next catch. She put her single mindedness to work, and let's face it, he wasn't hard to catch. A girly laugh, long blond locks, and hey presto, he's well and truly caught. His allure to her? His Asian heritage and even more, his wealthy father.

She has the know how (nursing background), the plan (copy the family who had quints), the determination (if at first you don't succeed, try try again), and the balls to get what she wanted. Jon is a weak man, and he saw what he thought was an easy way to make good money so he went along with her ambitions, or at least, he didn't fight her much on them.

Now he has long since outlived his usefulness so he was tossed to the wayside. Booby guard is a much more attractive sidekick that bumbling Jon. But remember this, for Kate is it NEVER about romance, desire or love for anyone besides herself. It is always about getting and attaining what she has always longed for - to be rich, and now, in the public eye. She's addicted to that camera, having a camera crew, and if possible, as many minions rushing to do her bidding as possible.

It's just a bigger rush to have a handsome booby guard who does her bidding.

I have a feeling Steve cultivates the "closeness" because it makes his job easier. He apparently doesn't have any moral scruples and maybe his wife gives her okay as long as those paychecks keep coming in. I wouldn't allow it, but then I'm a liberal feminist who happens to have conservative values when it comes to honoring marriage vows, lol.

I try not to think of Kate fooling around with anyone. The caterwauling must be horribly horrendous!

There are probably excellent Children's Mental Health facilities in their state with the experience to do a good job.

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

Good point, however from what I've read, the good state of PA has bent over backwards for Kate enough...

I do agree the kids deserve an 'impartial' therapist (or 3 or 4)...

KateIsMasculine said...

Congratulations to Kate. She now looks like every other bimbo on T.V. She could easily be mistaken for E. Hasselback, Tara Reid, Kelly Ripa, OH WAIT ! That's it! She is so envious of Kelly that she went after a similiar style. Maybe Kate's people are trying to repackage her, in hopes of finding another audience. Or maybe to make her less reconized by the ones who already know about her, and aren't amazed by her organizational skills.

And by the way, that "witty" sense of humor she has, is called flirting. Plain and simple. This is the reason Jon never got the joke. Experts say that when a wife treats their spouse like one of the children, an unequal, there is no possible way they are able to find themselves attracted to them in any way. Kate can take full credit for the failure of her marriage, not that she cares, and the failure of being a good mom. Simply because she isn't one.

This morning on popeater I found the following article which is posted below so people do not have to go to the link and add to the number of clicks:
(snip)...

#3. "She should hit the clubs with Susan Boyle! Those two could tear it up but good. And, I think they could both learn from each other (potential reality show/buddy movie franchise alert!)," says Rachel Sklar, editor-at-large of Mediaite.

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

Mickey, Thanks for copying that for us. It annoys me to try to find something, using a link, and then it may or may not be found. It is nice when I can just read it here.

When I got to #3 it sort of annoyed me, as Kate will never, ever have anything to teach Susan Boyle.

Susan has such a beautiful God-given voice, as well as humility and class to go with it.

Susan saw herself on television and was very embarrassed about how she behaved. She took it right to heart and says she is trying to be more lady-like.

When Kate sees herself on television she will never be embarrassed or try to change her behavior. She loves what she sees in herself and it only gets worse.
She has quite a love affair with herself.

Sissy said...

Heck, I'm sick of many people on TV now. For the most part, what's offered on TV is a compendium of crap. I'm sick of reality shows, "competitions" and such. Kate better think of the long-term, big picture. She's not going to be the next Oprah or Barbara Walters.

I certainly do hope the reality shows are just about over now. TV entertainment seems to run in spurts, and I hope reality is nearly spurted out.

Other than the fact that Steve is in close proximity to Kate because of his job, there is no evidence to even support the idea that she is having an affair with him. I'm not too concerned about her reputation, but I think it is horrible to slander a man who is only doing his job.
.................................

Well said!

There is not the slightest possibility that Steve would be interested in her romantically or sexually.

He has seen her at her very worst, and he goes to work and then goes home to his family.

He gets paid $1600.00 a day to carry her purse and keep the fans at bay. He knows this won't last forever, but it is dang good money, so he holds his nose, puts on his blank stare, and goes to work.

It is wrong to add fuel to the rumors that he is having an affair with Queen Hiney.

He ain't.

Tami said...
Jon has serious emotional problems. At least Kate's boyfriend is a decent man, even if he is married.
*******
What?! Sorry, but how do we know Steve is a decent man?! We know nothing about his personal life. He could be a dog. If he's cheating on his wife with Kate, he is not a decent man. Really, just because he is a bodyguard, etc, does not make him necessarily a great guy.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Okay, let's be fair here. Just because he is a bodyguard does not make him a cheater on his wife.

I think it is unfair to keep that stupid rumor alive.

-------

There's also no evidence that Jon every slept with Skanktoro, Majors and Deanna, but we all know you guys state those as facts because any rumors about him must be true.

But any rumors against, Princes Kate, has to be false. She has never contradicted herself in the same sentence or told any lies. She does everything for the kids and is the bestest mom in the whole world.

Charles said...

Although most of the tabloid reports about the affair are unsubstantiated, there are several reliable first-hand reports of their behavior together. There was a radio personality (in Michigan, I believe?) who personally saw them holding hands in a hotel lobby. Others who have seen them at Kate's events have noted that they acted very familiarly.
---------------------------------

That story changes everytime it is repeated. Somebody said what they thought they heard, but didn't actually see, or hear, but it is all true, because once someone saw something, and so it is all true.

Or not.

jibberjabbers said...

Jon. Jon, Jon, Jon, Jon, Jon. What ARE you doing?

Seriously, man. Either date someone your own age or at least in the same decade.

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

Why? She's 25 and I'm not sure where you're from but it isn't illegal anywhere in the states.

I mean there is plenty of things to pick on Jon about but dating a 25yo isn't one of them. 6-7 year difference. It's not that bad.

I mean, isn't Hugh Heffner fooling around with women in their early 20's? And he's like 90 years old.

hahaha said...

Anyone with any knowledge of Botox? Where the hell did kate's double/triple chin come from? She didn't have those even when she was heavy. Guess with all the snarking going about them, those chins will be the next thing to go on her plastic surgery quest. She keeps getting older and weirder looking the more she does.

Oh and about those extensions, how awful that matted mess must feel when she lays her head down on a pillow! How will she brush her hair, except very gingerly? Heh heh. 20 hours and all she got was a rat's nest ok the back of her head. Kate, better check out the hat aisle at Target. Keep that shut covered, idiot

Kris said...

Is it just me - or - is TLC and the witches PR people trying to make the witch look like Elin Woods?

The haircut is eerily similar, and Elin is receiving so much sympathy in the press and other media attention that it shoved the witch off the front pages of the magazines.

grannyoftwo said...

I wore my hair super short for a long time because when it grows out its very thick and has a really heavy wave/curl to it. If I even grow it past chin length i start getting migranes so it is quite possable for someone to suffer from migranes due to hair.


I am one that REALLY has this affliction also, and as the other person stated hair can cause migraines, so I think that Kate has lied all along about her hair causing migraines. Nobody in their right mind would do anything to bring on a migraine if they had EVER really suffered one to begin with. I cannot even grow my hair past my shoulders or wear it in a ponytail. I have to even get my short hair thinned out because if it gets to thick and heavy it causes problems with my headaches. So, all that being said, I cannot for the life of me understand how Kate is actually living with those tight weaves in her hair, and expecially as many as she had to have. It makes my head hurt just to think about it. Well my head hurts when I think about Kate anyway...lol Besides all of the above....hers really look bad! The guy who did that...he should be ashamed of his work. Maybe he doens't like her either and wanted her to look bad though, anyone thought of that?

AMEN!! I am looking f'ward to the day we all laugh, 'remember when 'reality' programs were in vogue? Bwahahaaa!'

And I love "Compendium of Crap"! Well said!

Bubbles said...

There was a statement from Jon's "people" that the girl in question is the girlfriend of one of his friends, not a new romance. That statement was issued the first day these rumors surfaced.

I can try to find a link & post it later.

KatesBigFlintstoneToe said...

Hair: horrendous!
And nothing can be done with her hideous chin & jowls.

You cannot make someone that ugly on the inside pretty on the outside

Vanessa said...

Just putting my hair up in a ponytail can trigger my migraines, so I call BS on her even getting them.
How do you attach extensions to a crew cut (in the back) anyways?

Why does she always have that sourpuss face when she's shopping at Target? Who's that bubblehead persona she keeps pulling out when she's getting paid/given free stuff? You have NOTHING to be miserable about! The sad part is even when she does smile, it's that Joker grimace. Why oh why does this woman bother me so much?

BarbMae said...

Can we say photoshopped? I just saw the photos of Queen Kate in PA shopping. Wow. She has the jowls of a bulldog. Where were those in the photo. She also has a little poochie stomach going on. Those pictures are the true Kate. Miserable, unhappy, sad. They both just need to go away and just give us a once a year glimpse of the 8 kids in a picture.

As much as I would like to snark about what Khates new mop looks like.The price and how ironically it came about at the same week i'm getting mine cut for Locks Of Love.Nope what bothers me the most now is what is actually going to happen when she goes home to those beautiful kids.Before even getting out of her ride she'll be screeching as only Khate can" Don't touch my new gorgeous hair i sat 20 hrs for or you might pull it out! Kids remember now we don't hug around the neck either as my new look is to precious to me! As snarky as that sounds sadly it's more close to being the truth! Sigh..

*****************
I commend you and others like you who donate to locks of love. I am a cancer survivor and wish I had thought to cut my own hair (it was quite long) and donated before it fell out. My niece who was 13 at the time donated her hair when I lost mine. My friends all got together and purchases a few wigs for me to wear during that time and to think somebody like Kate thinks nothing of blowing 7 grand on extensions (regardless of who actually paid for it) is just like a kick in the gut to me. I have suffered and struggled through my illness for the past 6 years and not once other than my friends did anybody do anything nice for me but yet people continually dote on that sorry excuse for a human being for whatever reason. It is quite sickening. Some people have no morals. The 7 grand it cost to make her look even worse than she did could have went to alot of cancer patients that is for sure. They all should be ashamed of themselves. I am sure I speak for many.

I have listened to the radio segment where the radio personality personally tells of seeing Kate and Steve holding hands the night before. This, at least, was a first-hand account and not hearsay.

Of course this does not prove an affair, but should married people be holding hands with someone that is not their spouse?

Karma said...

Kate Dirt!!!

the hair looks stupid said...

Just to piss everyone off: Clean Slate Skank states in the People article that the kids needs a counselor to "deal with the loss of a parent". Excuse me? Did someone die? Did Jon abandon the family? Or is this a vague stab in his back that can be explained away as a misunderstanding? Such a bitch. Certainly those kids aren't mourning the loss of her; she was never there to begin with. If they are mourning the loss of Jon , they have their horrid large-uterused mother to thank for poisoning their minds.
