Z on Tv has even heard the rumours surrounding Kate and DWTS!
Sorry to say, I don't watch the show but I WILL watch if she's on. I pity the fool they partner her up with!
The "fox" trot will have new meaning, just imagine those tree trunks trying to do intricate dance moves! Or the WALTZ! Sorry, I'm kind of looking forward to it actually!
The rehearsal tapes will provide for some good belly laughs, or make us cringe. She'll be rolling her eyes, cackling her cackle, trying to be the flirt, chomping on her cud...and best of all she can pull out her street corner wardrobe she's been keeping in her closet for the past few months!
PS-Who'll be at home playing the role of mother?

Gimme Gimme said...

Where is DWTS filmed and how is she going to coordinate round the clock nannies from afar if she is not going to allow Jon to step in during her absence? What if one of them gets sick?

My understanding is that it is an all consuming venture. Practice, practice, practice, and lots of injuries.

So in tune with her mantra...ask and you shall receive.

I think we saw this one coming, when she planted that question on 10@10. Afterall she does generate ratings if for no other reason.

Giving credit where credit is due she will work very, very hard at that. She gives 200 plus percent when it comes to establishing her celebrity hood.

Too bad she can't translate that over to motherhood.

I wonder if there has ever been another "single mom" who left 8 young children under the age of 10 at home with round the clock nannies while being on the show.
And then the book tour after that?

Hopefully she will take regular phone calls from home during her absence this time instead of only emergency calls that she just has a gut feeling about when deciding if she should answer and that is from her mouth.

I just never saw such a terrible mother be glorified. It is quite astounding, actually.

house hunter said...

Regarding the E-town house, is it possible J&K had a deal with TLC whereby if the house did not sell within a certain time period, TLC would buy it for a percentage of the asking price?

That's a fairly common scenario here, because a few of the major employers tend to transfer employees a lot. Employees are offered a relocation bonus, which includes the company buying their home from them for 80%-90% of the asking price, if it doesn't sell within six months to a year. Consequently homes are listed at the very highest end of their price range, refuse all offers, and are not reduced in price for several months.

Just sounds similar to the E-town house timeline, and like something Kate would jump on given the chance.

Gimme Gimme said...

Amazing how the house sold after the divorce went through. She would have been able to list that mortgage as part of her expense. I think the divorce was pushed through also to be done before year end because Jon made a lot of extra money during that year, in addition to his TLC money, and that (along with the extra mortgage) would have been prorated into the child support payments making them much larger.

Very savvy attorneys and a cunning, manipulative, and calculating client.

Brummygirl said...

DWTS is one of my favourite shows. She is an invasive creature who crawls into every crevice she can. I truly hope she does not ruin this for me. The Sheeple will have her on speed dial for voting.
It is filmed in L.A. so whilst she is there in between rehearsals, she can prime Hollywood for her next venture!!!
I can just see it now:

She steps from her limousine waving at her many fans...all two of them, B.M. and friend who put together the fare to L.A. by saving on their store coupons!
She arrives in dark glasses which has an earpiece fitted.
She breathes deeply and sighs "At last I am where I belong, a Star in L.A, I must check out where my actual star will be placed in Hollywood Boulevard".
Meanwhile back at the studio, the professional dancers are seeing who pulls the short straw to get Kate....groans of agony are heard!!
She arrives at the studio "I am Kate Gosselin" she says to the receptionist..."Who?, the woman stares at Kate blankly "I am a friend of BabaWaba, you must have seen me on the View"!
"Who?"
Kate, as stars go in Hollywood you are just blip in the Universe who happened to have eight kids. As they once said to Fred Astaire, "Can't sing, Can't Act and Can't Dance!!!"

Laurie said...

"Provocative points of view ensure that our readers will rant and rave to their friends, to online wedding discussion groups and in letters to the magazines"..."It's instant publicity. It gets Wow on daytime talk shows." (snipped from Whose Wedding is it Anyway? by Melissa Senate)

Sounds like TLC tlaking in a staff meeting doesn't it? The worse she is the more we talk. It also generates ratings becasue as Venessa said upthread she will watch. I won't. I will not be a party to anything that will keep the clock ticking on her 15 minutes.

MayDay said...

I think Kate will do fine on DWTS. I bet you she is taking private dance lessons already. She does not go into anything blinded. She also works hard when SHE wants it. Personally, I would love to see her fail big time at it, but somehow I think she will not allow that to happen. Kate and her magical ways. Kate gets what Kate wants.

Can't See Sheep said...

Oh boy, katie on DWTS, it'll be interesting to find out who in particular is backing kate & getting her on these programs when the kids write their books.

Gimme Gimme I agree, it's positively revolting that a terrible mother like kate seems to be so rewarded & glorified for her atrocious behaviour.

twoleftfeet said...

I think Kate will do fine on DWTS. I bet you she is taking private dance lessons already.

IMO, it takes much more than the ability to dance to WOW the DWTS audience. Unless Kate took some lessons on how to knock her ego down a few notches, as well as, attended a charm school her competition is already a 'step' ahead of her. Kate is accustomed to being the focus of a 'one person show'. The premise of DWTS is not.

Seems we might know where she is and why Jon is in PA?

where are the children. said...

Geez. If this is true, who has been raising the children.
Seriously, who is with the kids?

ihatefrogstoo said...

I guess there is the answer why Jon had four weeks away. Now he's signed up for several weeks straight while Kate is out in Hollywood pretending to be a star.

chronicworld said...

I told my husband that it looks as if Kate is actually going to be on DWTS.
He laughed and said,"They probably got her to fill the Freak Spot!"
I feel better now.

Sadly, keeping Katan away from the kids may be in their best interest. When she returns home, she'll be high on all the attention she's been getting while shaking that huge caboose in CA

I'm certainly glad that TLC put out that announcement some time ago that the show affords her the opportunity to spend quality time at home with her children. Bet they didn't know that the nannies are raising them!

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

Somebody has to be voted off first. Kate will just make it an easy choice.

Protect8 said...

Narcissists can not take criticism of any kind. And nothing is ever their fault. So it's going to be interesting to watch how Kate reacts to 3 judges telling her what she did wrong and then hearing how she blames someone else or an injury or whatever.

And ... I believe 100% that she has already told her children she has to do DWTS because she has to support them financially. Therefore, she is sacrificing by doing the show and this justifies being away from them for potentially 10 weeks. In other words, it is their fault she must be away.

The Gosselin children will probably burn up the phone lines voting for her to continue on the show in order to keep her away from home. With these phone votes along with the phone votes from an obsessed Kate fan (who someone suggested has already installed a phone bank) Kate might make it to the end.

Watching Kate put herself out there for criticism will be delightful though in reality I don't think she'll last long in the competition.

MickeyMcKean said...

If the rumors are true about Kate being on DWTS that is OK with me because she will be on a show without the kids.

Of course I am assuming that the kids will not even be there in CA during her training due to their PA school schedules and that they probably would need Jon's permission to travel out of state due to the divorce. Besides, I don't expect Kate to last very long on the show, that is, if she can even make it to the first couple of shows without getting hurt in the first place. Let's face it, she does not appear to be "athletic", I don't even recall even seeing her run after a kid now that I think about it.

So because the kids are not going to be filmed there is no exploitation, but I still have a problem. No, I don't care that Kate will be paid good money for her appearance because after all she needs to support her kids.

My issue is that Kate said on the J&K+8 episode where she had her tummy tuck that she never wanted to leave or miss another week of their lives again.

Well guess what Sheeple, I have been educated on her actions since that time, including how Jon was left home alone raising the kids for weeks at a time while she was on book tours traveling around the country with Steve, her body guard.

So my point of view is that all Kate really seems to want to do - because she craves the attention - is to go on long book tours or to do shows like DWTS filmed in CA in order to be away from her kids.

We all know that Jon and Kate are now divorced and there are dedicated custody times in place for each parent. Rumor has it that Kate has said that she will not allow Jon to be with the kids during her custody time even if she is out of town; instead Kate will opt to leave the kids with nannies only. This is really not a surprise, there is no doubt that the kids love and adore their father more than their mother (evidence is on film!) and Kate does have a track record of getting rid of all family in their lives - grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, dogs and last, but not least, their own father.

So if Kate is on DWTS, it is just more reason for me to believe that Kate had the six pack for her own personal fame and fortune, and now that she is "in demand" the kids are nothing more than little after thoughts in PA. IMO she does not want to stay at home with them, and when she has the opportunity she prefers to travel and act like a diva.

But what about her kids? Don't you think that they will have abandonment issues?

In fact I will not be surprised when her next book will be: Postcards To My Kids - How I Loved Spending My Life On The Road Even If It Meant You Had To Grow Up Without ME

I have not, will not, buy any books or DVDs from Kate and/or TLC. I will, however, look forward to buying any books that any of the 8 write in the future.

"Dancing with the Farce"

kate's an idiot said...

Ah, cmon, gimmegimme, don't worry about Kate being separated from her kids for so long and by an entire continent. She has her magic Mother's Intuition to rely upon should one of the kids get injured or sick. Those kids are golden. *roll eyes* It is amazing how easy it is for Kate to abandon the kids once there's something available for her to do on camera. She couldn't give a rat's ass about leaving those kids with the nannies for weeks/months at a time. Soon, if not already, they won't care that she's gone either. Probably so much more peaceful and pleasant without that screeching cackling bitch around to keep the kids from talking, dancing, or blowing whistles.

BTW , where are those dogs Kate was hoping would be part of their lives again?

Brummygirl said...

With a nod to Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers who really could dance.....to the tune of *I Won't Dance* an ode to Kate Gosselin!

"I won’t dance, don’t ask me
If by chance you feel free
My left foot feels.. as if I have two
I would much rather be hosting at *The View*.

I won’t dance, don’t ask me
Unless I get things free
I have to keep my hand on my “do”
Or the weave will very quickly split into two

Chorus…
Don’t even try to become sentimental
My feelings are only up for rental….

So, I won’t dance, don’t ask me
I might, if I’m on t.v.
After all.. I am a star
Whom people will worship on their knees from afar

Chorus….
My votes will come in from all the Sheeple
I owe all this to my loyal people..

So…..I won’t dance, for nothing
A contract must be in the offing
After all….. I had eight kids
I do not want to end up like Jon on the skids!!
So unless it’s worth it….I WON’T DANCE!!!"

>>I wonder if there has ever been another "single mom" who left 8 young children under the age of 10 at home with round the clock nannies<<

Not one who has appeared on DWTS but another one who gained celebrity by having a litter of Kids: Octomom! Who, BTW was on the View and has been seen gadding about in New York City...

she is evil said...

Great to hear that Kate has overcome her "fear" of injuring herself. Remember how she refused to ICE SKATE for fear that she'd get hurt and those kids would just perish without her around to scream at their dad to take care of them? Now she's not only willing to risk injury to herself (and her unfortunate dance partner; can you say hernia?), but willing to do so while separated from her kids for several weeks. Way to go, you big ol' botoxed hypocrite, Kate.

Amanda, Iowa said...

I just threw up in my mouth!
Is she NEVER going to go away????? Like, go home and take care of her kids like a loving (single) parent?
I couldnt leave my 5 kids alone for more then a weekend without feeling quilty. How does she do it?I even miss my dogs after a couple of days. Eventhough I know they are having a ball in the kennel.

Marie France said...

Khate can't dance. At all. Remember the "vow renewal" in Hawaii? She said she can't dance and it is obviously trus based on what I saw. The practice will be intense - but even with all the practice and rehearsals, she will never make it. She does not even walk or move with any sort of grace at all. Maybe she will be able to learn the steps, but she will never be able to dance. It will not be attractive to watch if she gets out there.

Jenny said...

You know what...those professional dance instructors on DWTS don't take any crap from the celebrity they're paired up with. They can be all nicey-nice in some of the behind the scenes fluff bits made specifically to air on certain segments of the show, but I remember when they showed them doing the actual training, they take it very seriously and aren't afraid to set their celebrity straight. I think it's because the further along in the competition they can get, the more salary they're paid.

So, whoever the poor thing turns out to be that's paired up with K8 will not be putting up with her bossy ways. But even so, sadly for him, they won't be getting far no matter how hard he tries to whip her into shape. It's like others have commented, you have to at least be somewhat athletic to begin with and we all know that just ain't the case with Miss Kate.

So I predict she'll get her face in front of the cameras the first week but then will collect her paycheck and be given the boot after the second week.

But g'friends...we have to give the woman a little credit cuz, well...you know...this is yet another sacrifice on her part. Don't you know she's only "doing it for the kids." (cough)

Amanda, Iwa said...

kate's an idiot said....BTW , where are those dogs Kate was hoping would be part of their lives again?...............

Well, thats a realy sad story. Professionals are still trying to train those dogs to like Kate, But evertime they show them her picture they rip it to shredds! Ruined for life.

fidosmommy said...

Maybe the reason Kate has been wearing such high heels everywhere she goes is to get used to having them on her feet. She'll have to dance in high heels if she's really going to be on DWTS, and without all this practice on the streets of Reading she could be twisting an ankle in them. (I wonder if she's got time for her own injuries, unlike Cara's)

And the new hairstyle will be much softer when she's all dressed up
than her former style.

Just have to wonder what kind of costume she'll be in - they're usually pretty revealing. Hope the church leaders are OK with Kate shaking her booty on national TV in a skimpy barely-there dress.

Ireen said...

Jon is home taking care of the kids while Kate is in LA learning her dance moves. She has been there. After all, Kate is the only one employed or seeking employment while Jon vacationed in Hawaii and Utah earlier this year.

Jane in California said...

I ranted and raved on here earlier that I would not, absolutely, no way, uh uh!, would not watch DWTS if Kate was on.

Now, I'm coming around. Kate is stiff, doesn't like to be told what to do, doesn't like working hard, can't take criticism -- could it be that we might actually see some epic melt down(s) (oh, please let it be plural) from Kate as she clomps around the dance floor, fluttering her 80's french manicure, braying her signature horse whinny, then scowling at the judges as they critique her performance. I'm looking forward to the appearance of her two deep forehead furrows :)

It's not right (or fair) of me to wish her on Maxsim, but he would be merciless. How about the guy that paired with the first season winner - he's a total diva too, and a very demanding partner.

Oooh, maybe to the new guy, Dmitri! He'll give her whiplash as he throws her around the floor.

This just might turn out to be a great deal of fun after all. Some people do get a real boost in their careers from this show, but most of them fade back into the woodwork quick enough. And those that do well are generally those that dance well, truly appeal to the audience, and win them over. Can we see Kate doing any of that? Errrrr, that's a resounding no~

Ellas Mum said...

March 11th has got to be an important date for her to appear on the view, maybe its to announce her own show, book or a short time before dwts starts.

Its been planned for about 4 weeks now, something is definately brewing

Ella's Mum said...

If she is going on DWTS I really hope she is partnered with Max, he wont take any s**t

Ireen said...

Jane in Cali: That is exactly why the ratings will be thru the roof. This is a boon for DWTS. I guarantee the best ratings ever because of Kate and only Kate. We will all be glued to our sets to watch her fail while we make her even more popular than before. These dancers get a lot of PR. They are on every entertainment show during the whole run of the show so Kate will really be out there. This is probably the best thing for her to do if she wants to stay in TV. Can't you just wait to see her and her partner fight? That will be great TV and her promoters know that. Believe me they will play up that angle on purpose because that is what people want from Kate Gosselin. They cannot wait to read the blogs after Kate dances.

Brummy Girl, you have penned another HIT! WTG

SwingsandRoundabouts said...

Brummygirl, another great one. Bravo!

Kate on DWTS? Say it ain't so. She is infecting one of my favourite shows. I thought she didn't dance? Acckk! Help me. I am caught in a never-ending nightmare of visions of Kate in sequins and feathers and sparkly eye liner and endless yards of satin and lace, cackling and mugging and screeching at her partner. Fellini, cut it out please.

Gimme Gimme said...

I can't help but think that she wanted to be on DWTS because of the sexy outfits. I don't think she has a clue at the amt of work it will take to turn her into a dancer.

Something else also struck me..another one of her lies. In the trailer for the new book---she says she dreaded the book tour because she was afraid to fly. Paleez!

Wasn't that after they went to Hawaii and had flown several times to be on shows and get freebies? The only fear I saw was when she cried like a baby, because the kids were melting down on the plane.

seasidebreeze said...

All the Gosselins kids are going to remember about Kate is how much time she spent away from them, doing what she wanted to do, i.e. DWTS. Those poor kids having Jon and Kate as parents. I hope she gets voted off quickly.

Dunwoody Mom said...

I don't think so. The overwhelming majority of TV watchers could care less about Kate Gosselin.

I have never watched DWTS and I have no intention of watching now, even if to laugh Kate Gosselin off the stage.

Twinkle Toes said...

Jonathan Roberts and Lacey Schwimmer announced they will not be participating in DWTS this season. Neither would say why.

This is purely just me with a "conspiracy theory", but it would be something if these people are dropping out because they want nothing to do with Kate.

Could you just imagine if she was partnered with Jonathan Roberts? They'd be dubbed Jon & Kate throughtout her run on the show, and I can here her screeching "Joooooooonnnnnnnn" during rehearsals. Poor guy.

On another note, there have been other D list celebs on there who I never cared much for either, but none of them had 8 small kids back home on the other side of the country. IF she is doing DWTS ( and I really doubt she is ), she has to be one of the most selfish people I've ever seen in my life. I have no doubts she would completely abandon them, either full custody to Jon or a boarding school, to free her up to continue pursuing stardom....and the whole time still preaching that she is doing it for the kids.

But I really don't think she's going to be on the show. I think it's her PR people just trying to keep her name fresh in people's minds. But I would love to see Carrieann, Len and Bruno shred her to pieces with criticism. And I 'd love to see her make a complete @$$ out of herself.

Jane in California said...

Oh my! That pic of "mad mama" is hilarious! What is up with Kate's skin tone? Her face appears to have such a strange lumpiness to it at times. Her hair does not look good at all either. Messy and straw-like.

Is she wearing a cuff made by that boozy housewife from Orange County?

Sing to the Song by Elton John
I'm Still Standing

You could never know what it's like
My blood like winter freezes just like ice in NYC
And there's a cold lonely light that shines from Spin
You'll wind up like the wreck as you hide behind that weave you use
And did you think this fool could never win
Well look at me, I'm coming back again
I got a taste of the grifter life in a simple way
And if you need to know while I'm still dancing, jon and kids just fade away
Don't you know I'm still dancing better than I ever did
Looking like a true survivor, high-road taker, don't care about my kids
I'm still dancing after all this time
Picking up the pieces of my life without jon and the kids on my mind
I'm still dancing, I'm a Star!
I'm still dancing, I'm a Star!
Once I never could hope to win
the big trophy on ABC
If AWR life is just a circus, we'd be all clowns by now.

the entire cast of DWTS is going to be annunced on Mon. March 1st after The Bachelor, so there goes that theory out the window.

dwts said...

DWTS will have her on just for the ratings.
They know lots of people want to see her fail and will therefore tune in. I wonder if Kate realises she's just being used for this purpose?

Laura T said...

Great now she will be back on the talk show circuit,speaking about the same things her book and dwts experiences- voila she's a star again!

This stardom comes at a price and I hope its worth it.

***
ITA. And all this talk about "Kate won't let Jon be with the kids while she's away" will be spun into "Well, being the high road taker that I am, and knowing that my kids need to have their father in their life, I've decided to put my own personal feelings of hurt and pain aside and allow Jon to care for them while I'm off on my book tour/DWTS stint."

And given the recent TLC settlement, I suspect Kate will slowly start singing Jon's praises, since he's allowing the kids to be filmed again. In fact, (for all the konspiracy theorists out there) it could be that within the year the two start "dating" again...leading to a reconciliation...leading to at least another book deal and lecture tour (How we found our way to each other)....the list goes on and on.

Honestly, won't watch DWTS - don't watch it know and if I want to catch Kate's dancing and see what everyone is snarking about, I can tune into YouTube.

You know, it's only really been 2 and1/2 years that the show was on? Yes there were also the documentaries in 2003 and 2004 but it took 3 years after the last documentary for Discovery to pick it up. For some reason it feels like these two have been around for much much longer.

Special Kate Gosselin Lyrics, to the tune of "I Could Have Danced All Night", with apologies to Julie Andrews, et al.

Bed, Bed I wanna go to bed
My hair's all matted and falling on the ground
Sleep, Sleep I gotta get some sleep tonight
Before I fling my tatas around

I will not dance all night
I will not dance all night
Tho' TLC demands some more
I should have hit starbucks
To rev my vodka up
Instead of falling on the floor

I'll never know
What made them think
I want to work this hard
Or why I took this gig,
Good Grief

I only know when I
Get yelled at by that guy
I don't wanna dance dance dance!
All night.

It's after three now
Don't you agree now
I ought to be in bed

I don't plan to dance all night
Get ready for a fight
Will a "love tap" save the day?
I could have done anything
And bought some expensive rings
All for my children's sake
Just cause I'm gone so long
They still fear me all the same

"Call home!" they say
I say "Hell no! No Way!"
I'm such a busy star!
Then they reminded me,
I will be on TV
And must pretend to be sad
The kids are with their deadbeat dad

It must be an emergency
For them to contact me
I could have slept slept slept all night!

I understand, witch.
It sucks for me, witch
But I must whip you into shape

I will NOT dance all night,
I will NOT dance all night.
I'm gonna call my publicist.
I'm not an athlete,
I trip on my own feet
All this moving makes me sore

Where is my nice white chair?
I plan to sit down there
You go on and dance some more,
I'll offer witty zings, and many other things

While you dance, dance, dance all night!

HI 50 said...

Two sides, good point. DWTS dance moves and costumes are very, very sexually provocative. Does her FAITH condone the dancing & costuming? The creativity in the choreography will NOT be her ideas, b/c its not her arena. Katan, leave the choreography up to your professional dance partner. BTW, hope its Maxim b/c he'll call it how he sees it. BUT I pray Maxim can tolerate her cackling laught, screaming, stiff posture/gait, and 'hitting' if he doesn't get it right (remember Emeril's episode). Should be interesting.

She will never give custody to Jon.Her only reason for being/stardom is as a (now single) Mom. I'll bet on the boarding school tho, "for the kids" of course.

I know this could never happen because TLC would not let it. But I would love to see Jon slim down and tone up and be on DWTS. He would be very good at it because he actually has rhythm and could certainly take the criticism as that is all the poor guy knows.

I might actually watch whereas I don't now. I loved dance your ass off and wish that would come back on. To me it was a much better show, real people, not stars who didn't have to audition but had it handed to them on a "golden" platter (perhaps the "provocative" misnomer of all time). A psychiatrist's dream she would be. I would love to see her read ink blots.

I looked at the mad mommie pic.. who stuck a fork in her cheerios? Maybe she could star in horror films much like the role Kathy Bates had in Misery. Would hate to be 3 feet tall and have that face to contend with if I made a little snafu. What a nightmare.

jibberjabbers said...

Sorry but Kate will never be a star. Kate seems to be pushing it as far as she can but the general population don't really care. You can hear the awkward laugh and pauses during Kate's 10 @ 10.

And no, I won't be watching her on DWTS. She might even do well on that show. Who knows.

You really think Kate would make a fool of herself? Kate refused to go skiing, rollerblading, ice skating, hike up a mountain. etc etc.

So making an appearance on a national tv show I'm guessing Kate is pretty confident.

she is evil said...

Ireen, you are correct only if Kate wants to continue to be the screeching shrew she was on JK8. If she wants to be the new, softer, fake Kate, then I think she loses all that was interesting (ie: hatable) about her. All that's left is her intellect, charm, humor, and mothering skills. Need I say more? And worst of all, she becomes boring and utterly forgettable. Who knows? The American public might not mind that she's abandoning her kids, but I doubt it. When Heather Mills was on, she brought her daughter to LA with her and made arrangements for her ex to take care of the child for part of her time on the show. Kate just saying "la-dee-dah, gotta go work to support you kids, bye!" might rub people the wrong way. And it all goes back to the first question we all had, why in the world did Kate insist on having more kids than she could afford. Sacrificing their childhoods and abandoning them to make ends meet are not acceptable when all this was preventable in the first place. So irresponsible

question said...

Wait wait wait.. has it been confirmed that she IS on DWTS, or is it speculation at this point?

If she ahsnt, i cant see this happening....

NeverLikedKate said...

All the worry about the "nakedness" went out the window when she paraded her bikini-of-the-day while on vacation.

I love DWTS but I won't be watching until after she is eliminated. I would love for her to be paired with Max...he could give her a taste of what Jon had to deal with during their marriage/show.

But I'm afraid she'll get someone like Tony who is too nice to deal with KHate.

The reason some of the pros are not back is because they cut the number of couples to 12 or 13. TPTB decided which pros would be back.

katan the stupid said...

Kate dumped the church long ago. She doesn't care what the church elders think, she's above that now. Of course, her rejection of the church doesn't keep her from publishing two books filled with bible verses and prayers. She'll use anyone, including God, to get what she wants. Just wait. That lightning bolt will get her one day

So DONE with the KON said...

I don't watch DWTS, but wasn't Kim K. on the show last season? For some reason, that 'brand' is quite hot, but the legions of fans that Ms. Kim seems to have did little to keep her on the show for very long, IIRC. Take heart, folks - same thing will probably happen to Miss Katie Irene. There is no way that she is more popular than Kim K., so she probably won't last longer than the first couple of shows (sorry BM!). Of course, we'll have to endure several weeks of interviews on the various entertainment shows; fortunately, I started tuning them out when they started their never-ending coverage of all things Gosselin last summer.

she is evil said...

DWTS is a popularity contest as well as a dance contest. The best dancers tend to make it to the end, but popular (as in charming, sweet) contestants stay longer than they might of if they had been purely judged on dance skills. Have no idea if Kate is athletic or graceful, but something tells me no. I doubt she'll last long. The Kate fans/haters (I'll admit to being a disliker) are a small bunch. Most people don't know or care much about her and what they do know is negative. Can't imagine Kate has it within her to charm (aaah...that fake cackle) and we'll see if she can mooooooove. Well, at least the kids get to breathe a little now, and as loudly as they want. Ugh, she's such a bitch

Gimme Gimme said...

I would imagine that most moms who do this have family to step in and take care of the kids or the kids' father or their husband. Kate won't let Jon have more than his days so that leaves them with who knows what flavor of the month nanny?

It is not like they have Aunt Jodi, Uncle Kevin or Beth or grandparents looking in on them (other than Jon's). They are all alone with a parade of nannies with mommy 2000+ miles away, not even phoning home or accepting phone calls?

I can't imagine any mother of so many emotionally needy little ones ever doing that for such an extended period of time. And she wonders why people dislike her so, and it is not just one site, it is all over the boards everywhere you look except ROL of course.

These kids are on their own you might as well say.

she is evil said...

I don't know if Kate will bring in ratings. I personally think all the interest in her revolves around the kids. Most of us started as fans of the show. We saw this young couple of limited means with this huge brood who captivated us. Then the ugly truth slowly but surely bubbled to the surface. Evidence of Kate's abuse of her kids and especially Jon kept us riveted to the tv until many of us just couldn't stand it anymore. Then we realized our suspicions that the show was a sham were correct when the divorce was announced a few months after their joyless vow renewals. The divorce itself has been a travesty as we've watched an adorable man (yes, Jon) be ruined by TLC and the wife who forced him to have all these kids in the first place. I have never been interested in Kate herself, I'd rather she disappear from public view. So it'll be interesting to see if anyone cares about Kate, period, no kids, no Jon. My guess is no. Look at what happened to their show once Jon was shoved off; ratings went way down. In fact, I think he was the bigger draw on that show. He was the one we could relate to. She was the villain everyone hated, her family included

groovymom00 said...

I have been watching DWTS since the first season, and what worries me the most about this whole thing is that the celebrities that are on, are usually there not only to complete, but to promote their "new" ventures. So unfortunately, this appearance is only serving as a springboard for Kate's next endevour, and THAT scares me.

OverwithKON ~~ said...

Really DWTS?!?!? Yikes, I really hope not..... she is a tree trunk, not a dancer.

Misty pig said...

Would hate to be 3 feet tall and have that face to contend with if I made a little snafu. What a nightmare.
++++++++++++++++
Well said. Her screaming at Jon may have been for public entertainment, but i feel sad for the tiny people who would have heard and seen the scary behavior of Kate.

We have seen her bellow and just loose it (yell, cry, toss treasured items) over little things. It must be stressful wondering what to do to avoid that side of mom.

I do think in the last few episodes the kids looked stressed and stunned.

phew said...

BUT I pray Maxim can tolerate her cackling laught, screaming, stiff posture/gait, and 'hitting' if he doesn't get it right (remember Emeril's episode). Should be interesting."


Man oh man. We have seen Kate doing all this and the guest just sucks it up and plays nice.

I suspect the dancers would not tolerate this behavior or find it cute.

ps cackle doesnt even begin to describe that noise she makes

Pattypanda said...

I doubt Kate would/could do DWTS. She is just too lazy. She would never take direction from a coach/partner for 8+ hours a day. Do you remember them "dancing" in Hawaii - talk about uncomfortable on the dance floor. What happen to her motto that she couldn't skate or so anything that "would put her out of commission" if she hurt herself? Oh ya, that was before the team of notanannies.

goawayfools said...

No matter what Jon has said or done publicly that may be questionable, he has always been good with those kids. And frankly, most of what he has done that he's been bashed for has been spun and exaggerated. The man went out and had a few beers and managed to be photographed doing so. He moved on with new girlfriends AFTER the separation. None of this impacts the fact that he's the best person to be with those kids when Kate abandons them for her "career". In fact, Kate's reputation would probably be better if she had not bashed him and allowed TLC to try to ruin him. They couldve continued the show as a divorced couple coparenting those kids civilly. But no. Something about Kate... She always has to "win" even though there was no contest to begin with and even if it damages her kids in the process. She is a horrible mother.

Tami said...

As horrible as Kate is with people skills when she is being her true self, her dance partner would be miserable! They always show the rehearsal part and how they either get along well or get in arguments with each other. I could see her getting along as well as she did with Emeril. She will not last either. The sheeple numbers are not that high and her dancing would be awful. She has the grace of a turkey.

-------------------------------
Thanks for posting that link. It's the first pic in a while that shows the REAL K8 most of us have come to know and why we don't buy into the nicey nice version that shows up in various interviews. It's obviously a side of her that she's successfully kept hidden most of the time.

Maybe now when folks start seeing photos like this, they might finally get a clue as to the person we've all known for a while now that hides behind the "nice" facade and understand that we're not making this stuff up.

Brummygirl said...

I can just imagine the judges' comments after Kate's first dance.

Bruno would try to be nice.
"Really Darling, you look very nice, but this is a dancing competition, we have to vote how we see."

Carrie Anne: I don't feel you have the rythm and I really expected you to be better than that.

Len Goodman: "Cor Blimey, I thought I was at a blooming soccer match with a bunch of elephants the way you clumped your way through that. There was no rise or fall, it was flat all the way, no eye contact but that was maybe because of the crooked one you might have been looking over his left shoulder. Shut up you lot" he says to B.M. and her minions
"you ask me to judge and this is what I am doing". To Kate "Sorry me old cock and sparrow but I think that was enough to frighten granny out of the attic!!"

Canadian Mom said...

Could someone explain this?

If the kids were truly *in need* of therapy, (and it was said Kate had found them a psychologist/psychiatrist willing to come to their home)....

Would it not be further damaging their little confused minds when their mother abandons them...yet again (book tour, The View, possible DWTS)?

Canadian Mom said...

Mickey McKean said...
But what about her kids? Don't you think that they will have abandonment issues?
*******************************

This! Gah.

Ann said...

We know Kate can't dance and does not have a strong work ethic to try and learn like some dancers have in past seasons. My only worry is that "bad" dancers usually last awhile. The vote for the worst site (that does american idol) also promotes to vote for the worst dancer. Lots of people really vote from those sites. I can already picture the cartoon Kate on the vote for the worst site!

Lynn W. said...

Wow, our songwriters are really doing a great job this week. Thank you all!! Now you need to start thinking of K8's exit song when she is promptly shown "exit stage left".

Chris said...

There has been another mother of 8 on DWTS and I hope Kate does not compare herself to Marie Osmond. Marie lives in las vegas(an easy commute) and her kids are older, only 4 were under 18. I think they were 7, 12, 13, and 17 when she was on.
Marie at least has been open about her family issues, and attends church. Years ago when Marie got divorced she took time off and spent it with her kids. Most of the casual viewers of J&K that I know that still see Kate in a favorable light, would not approve of her leaving her kids just a few months after the divorce. These are the fans/viewers that do not know about the book tours and spa trips but being on DWTS Kate can't hide being a 100% stay at home mom.

chronicworld said...

As a relatively new poster here, I decided to go back and look through your archives to see what I'd missed through the months you'd been here. The first thing I read was an interview with Kate in a Canadian magazine, way back in December of 2008, I believe.
Boy, she was shoveling it back then!
Always being there for her kids, organic snacks, blah, blah, blah. She's spouting the same dookey today, as if nothing has changed. Amazing.
By the way, you are one hilarious group of women!

Lauren said...

I don't like Kate and I won't be watching. She's going to be on with sex bomb Pamela Anderson. Pam (and her chest) will attract a lot of attention. Kate is out of her league, big time. Kate is nothing without her kids. I think it will be funny to see Kate and her air-craft carrier sized feet dancing.

Gimme Gimme said...

Well I had said I wouldn't be watching DWTS but I will because Pamela Anderson is going to be on. Even mean mommie can't stop me from that one. Pamela is a great mom and is a lunchroom monitor at her kids' school and participates in all of their activities with no cameras--imagine that. Being a great mom is the biggest claim to fame that any person could have in my opinion.

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

That's just it, kate's not a mom, she's never been a mom & she will never ever be one in her lifetime, she's just someone that gave birth to a bunch of very unfortunate children. I loath seeing kate & the word mom in the same sentence. It takes so much more than the physical act giving birth to be a mom & those 8 little kids are stranded in this world without one. Even Grendel's mother cared more for her offspring than kate does.


Chick, you've given me a wonderful giggle! "Where is my nice white chair?", really pitched me into a fit of them, that was so fitting. I could see her up on the stage, butt parked in the plastic white throne, everyone having to dance around her, like they do at home, so to speak.

I agree with silimom, it does feel like the G's have been around a lot longer than they actually have.

Laurie said...

Goawayfools you're absolutely right about what you've said about Jon and the fact that they could have continued the show as a divorced couple co-parenting the kids. People would have watched because that is more real than the "Kate is greate" that TLC is trying to shove down our throats! Unfortunately, now you may have given TLC an idea for their new show.

jen said...

If she's on, I'll just wait till she is kicked off to start watching. I can always catch videos of everyone else on youtube until then.

DWTS Fan said...

(snipped jibberjabbers) So making an appearance on a national tv show I'm guessing Kate is pretty confident.

While she may be confident in her abilities to dance her posture is terrible and the judges would eat her alive in some of those dances requiring the erect stance. As we know, a private teacher may praise your dancing and/or singing abilities to keep the paycheck coming in (witness some of the kids on American Idol and some of the kids on So You Think You Can Dance).

Also, in the early stages when it comes down to a couple of couples don't the judges make the call as to who is going home?

Oh well, America's Next Top Model comes on at the same time so I guess I'll be watching that this year.

Joanne said...

Kate on DWTS?
1. She is NOT a star.
2. She is clumsy as hell.
3. There is nothing refined or elegant about her.
4. She will make a total fool of herself... once again.

Why do they ecourage this woman?

LP said...

I think Heather Mills did a better job with one leg than kate will do with two! KI is not graceful in the least. Anyway, it's all speculation until tonight when DWTS makes the announcement AND if she's not on and this was a PR plant it worked. It's got us talking about her again albeit less than 70 comments (so far) and this discussion has been up since Friday.

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

Well, Kate IS a star. Like it or not, she is. Earned or not, she is. Good mother or not, it doesn't matter.

I don't watch that dancing show, and won't watch it just because she is on. I am not interested if Tom Delay, or the Osmonds, or whoever else was on the show (I heard they were on the show) can dance. I could care less.

I used to think Jon was the better parent, and if you had to choose, I guess he is. But, on the other hand, I just can't justify him allowing the 'entire Gosselin family" to remain under contract so he can draw a paycheck. In essence, he is letting TLC film his children so he can draw a paycheck without actually earning it himself---sounds like a pimp, to me. Shameful.

Both parents have sold out their kids. Period. If KI wants to go on the dance show, I say let her! At least she is trying to make money without using the kids. You have to give her credit for that.

I don't care for how she treated Jon, or the kids either. She still has a right to make a living (although I don't agree with her upscale lifestyle), at least she is trying to do something. What is Jon doing? NOTHING.

Kate's an idiot said...

Do all the contestants on dwts get 5 star accomodations while on the show? Seems like a suite at the four seasons is excessive. Who's paying I wonder?

kate's an idiot said...

Betcha Kate "settled" with Jon so those kids can cheer her on from the audience. That's her ace in the hole regarding ratings. And maybe that's why she "needs" the suite at the four seasons

Laurie said...

Pictures up on ROL of Jon playing in the snow with the kids. I especially like this one as he (Jon) is down on his knees IN THE SNOW zipping up one of the tups jackets. That is a ture dad moment. I wonder if kate has any mom moments like this....

Prediction: katan shows up to DWTS noticeably thinner, especially in her thighs and butt area due to lipo. It would explain why she is in LA so early and why she's under a cloud of security/secrecy. Then she'll sell her story of how she lost the weight (but leave out the part about the vacuum cleaner). The woman is so vain. It fits perfectly with her MO, mainly herself.

Candice said...

Bu...bu...BUT what if she breaks her leg?????

zippity do dah said...

If she does go on DWTS, don't think for one second she won't have those kids sitting front and center- she will continue to exploit them at some level in the hopes of public sympathy to keep her on. And if it does get on DWTS I hope she gets Maks- I hear he's a real tough no nonsense guy.... maybe he would put her in her place....and wouldn't doubt she would be mackin on him bigtime too if she gets him, after all who can resist a clown car uterus with tree truck stems.

PJ's momma said...

ROL says they have confirmed Kate will be on DWTS, using their usual-Kate-slanted propoganda about being a super mom who always puts her kids first (however, the pic looks evil). Everyone here called it: it's about ratings and they know people will watch, even if it is to watch her fail. I sure won't though (not that I have ever watched).

Nah....twill never happen. Sheeple will come up with some lame excuse: mentrual cramps, kids were being mean to her, Jon didn't cough up support money, she's got 8,count 'em 8 kids and NO help at all, the worls is jess jellus of her baa baa baa.

Can you just imagine her wiggling her toochie (how the heck DO you spell that?!) and those big overprocessed girls? Her church will be sooooo proud.

We always watch DWTS but won't if Kate is on. Remember, a vote for anyone else, isn't a vote to keep Kate on for the following week.
Remember the interview at the Grove that showed Kate parading around with that NBC interviewer? She can't even walk in super high heels - she clomps her giant feet very carefully in heels - it would be really funny to see her try to dance.

lukebandit said...

i was on ROL and the top story was Marie Osmonds son, but Kate couldn't stand not being talked about so here is the Breaking News!
IT IS TRUE! Kate Gosselin is going to be on DWTS. ABC accomodated the dancing fool with private lessons near her wernersville home so she would be near her children. all this is is damage control. she knew it would look very bad if she left them for weeks at a time. and i think she should still let jon have her custody day instead of the one by one not a nannys. those poor kids. i wonder if they will do a satellite feed showing the kids rooting the SAHM of the year to win each week. i am so proud of Kelly Osborne who blossomed on DWTS into a mature caring young lady. Kate will bloom into oblivion after getting smacked down by the DWTS judges. i can't wait to see Bruno Braise her Basketballs! lol

Protect8 said...

"forwhatitsworth said...

Yes! Kate referring to herself as a "single mother" is wrong. Her children have a father who is involved in their lives, who took care of them for months while Kate was on the road promoting a book that also has his name on it as an author. And she has a staff of individuals helping her on a daily basis.

As for income, the money the Gosselins are still living off of would largely be from the show that Jon was part of. Jon has also earned money from interviews which Kate's appearance on the View and LKL would not cover her mortgage. Interesting that if Kate does an interview it is because she has to support her children (always sacrificing for those kids!).

Kate is NOT a single mother. She is not a widow nor did her husband "disappear" by running away and dropping off the face of the earth. The title "single mother" should respectfully go to women who raise their children solely on their own with no help, emotionally and financially, from their children's father.

Since Jon is home right now with the children (for what? two weeks now?) should we call him a "single father?"

It's sickening to see Kate lay "single scacrificing mother" guilt trips on her children in just about every interview she does.

BMWoP said...

Isn't Max going to be Pamela Anderson's partner?

Kate will mosty likely get Louie Van Amstel because he's probably the only one who would be willing to go to PA to rehearse.

It wouldn't surprise me in the least that TLC is paying ABC to have her on the show. I think this is a LOT of TLC's doing so her reality show won't tank.

I can almost see Joel McHale now...giddy with glee that Kate and DWTS is handing him material to use against her on The Soup.

But can she dance and chew gum at the same time? Guess we'll just have to wait and see, although I'll have to rely on recaps becasue I won't watch.

Anonymous said...

Where to even begin with all this. Its such a mess. She is going to be in LA criss crossing the county and her kids will be left without her yet again. Its clear she wants to be as far away from them as possible. Now all 10 of her fans from Radar who dont believe she had her boobs done will see for a fact that she did. LIES LIES LIES.. thats all Khate is good for.

Mrs. Green Jeans said...

I thought this show was called DWTS? Not Creature Feature.

I really feel bad for whomever got stuck with her for a partner.

AZMom said...

Hmmmm, Pamela Anderson and Kate Gosselin it will truly be the battle of the boobs! (double entendre intended!)

Jane in California said...

So it appears semi-official - Kate is going to be a contestant on DWTS this season. I am fairly confident she will leave her children at home, since they are being lazy and not earning her any money lately! The slackers. Now mommy actually has to go out and work, it's so unfair. After all, she was on bedrest for 30 weeks, except for the times when she dragged herself over to Jon's office to berate him because his father hadn't brought the Queen her favorite meal bedside.

I wonder if she has any clue of the real work (painful work) involved in being on this show?

If karma is choosing to kick in now, they will pair her with Maks, or with Edyta's husband - they are both very demanding and do not coddle their celebs. Please don't pair her with Tony Dovalani - he doesn't deserve it!

Thirdly, the possibility she will make a complete fool of herself is very, very high. If you're a fan of this show, I predict we see some Kathy Ireland ice princess stiff dancing, mixed with some David Allan Grier "I'm so much better than all of you" huffiness, tossed will with some Penn (of Penn & Teller) heavy-footed clomping around the dance floor.

I say, bring it on and let the mockery begin.

IMO, the busier Kate is the better. If she's away from home she's not screaming at, demeaning and beating those children. Personally, I hope she's a huge success and stays away forever. In an ideal world, the kids would miss their mommy and she would miss them, but that's not how it works in GosselinLand.

Gosselin Kids all the way said...

ROL is now confirming that Khate will be on DWTS and of course, spinning it as that she has no choice..badmouthing Jon. Read the article and decide for yourself once again how slated the story is to Kate's favor (as usual).

http://www.radaronline.com/exclusives/2010/03/exclusive-its-true-kate-gosselin-will-be-dancing-stars

PJ said...

From what I read, Dancing with the Stars pays a minimum of $125,000 to be a contestant on the show and around $350,000 if you make the final two. (That was the contract Shawn Johnson had according to TMZ.) We know Kate won't make the final 2 but it seems like Kate should make enough to keep the kids in their private school another year even if her book bombs.

Also where did we hear that Kate won't let Jon be with the kids the days she is away? I expect part of the "staying on contract with TLC" has Jon being home with kids while Kate works. When Kate is not working, I imagine he will be "allowed" to go hang out with his girlfriend.

silimom said...

mommyofthree -

You are correct. If Kate wants to do DWTS fine. If Kate wants to do anything that doesn't involve using her children as her springboard to fame, then have it thee.

But the problem, mommyofthree, IMO is that Kate's whole career is BASED on her children's involvement. If she wants to be an author, great. Show us that you can write about something other than your children. Want to be a television personality? Great, show us that you can get the gigs based on your own merits without involving your kids in any way, shape or form.

If DWTS wants to put her on for ratings and pay her for that, fine. I welcome Kate showing me that she can make it based on her own talents, that there is more to her than just being a mom. What I wouldn't want to hear is that she's on the show constantly talking about her kids or that they're on each night via live satellite feed cheering her on. I mean, come on, is that really the only thing she has to contribute to the world?

I am a wife and a SAH mom. But I am also an individual. I can talk on more than just potty training, special education, and kids because, while those things are important, they are not all that define me. I think Kate has spent so many years selling herself as "World' Best Mom" that she can't get beyond that.

Personally, I won't watch DWTS, but that's because I don't watch it. I'm too busy with my own children and the things I have going on in my own life. I certainly wouldn't tune in to just watch Kate. As I said, I can do that on Youtube.

MommaD said...

I told my kids, ages 23-25-27 that she was going on DWTS. They said that if she hasn't been around, it isn't plastic surgery, she's been practicing and getting in shape. Most people on there don't show up the first day it is on tv. Made sense to me.

babsj said...

Be prepared, no one on DWTS will go after Her Heinous just like no one but Whoopie confronted her to her face on The View. And to allow her to practice in PA is just another of the reasons why people hate her, she gets special treatment and consideration in EVERYTHING she does and then acts like it was such a big deal on her part. I do agree also that she will look BAD as she has atrocious posture, is absolutely UNGRACEFUL when moving, will look ridiculous with her pasted on FAKE smile and when she IS actually THERE doing the show will not relate at all with anyone there which will not help her make a favorable impression on anyone. All I really wish is that whoever she has whatever on at TLC gets found out someday soon so we will be rid of her.

Thanks to all of you who put up the links. It was nice to the kids out being kids with their dad. Jon is a good dad and no one can take that away from him.

I have seen a lot of negative feedback from sites out there about mean mommie being on DWTS.
She is defending herself that she has to make a living.

Is she not under contract w/ TLC for a new show and has continued to be under contract with them throughout and doesn't she receive a 5-figure child support check from Jon? I'm thinking the answer is yes.

How much money does this frickin woman need?

Brummygirl said...

I have always watched DWTS, that was my other program when J&K plus 8 was on.
Kate will not take my favourite program away, I will watch and see her fail miserably. My vote will go to everyone else but Kate.
I do not know why everyone is falling for Kate's persona, there again, Hitler was adored!!

jasmine said...

Kate will have her children seated in the front row at the DWTS taping and will use them every chance she can to solicit votes. On a positive note, Tom Selleck is rumored to be on DWTS also. Don't care if he can dance, but he's got my vote.

NEPsych said...

forwhatitsworth: Yes and Kate is the only one employed right now or at least getting paid. Jon has no job except to run around the country with young girls. And that doesn't pay too much.She also has a book coming out which will earn her some more money while Jon stays home and plays house.

Big DWTS fan said...

OMG. I'm sorry, but I think Kate on DWTS is going to be HILARIOUS. As someone mentioned upthread, who really cares if she's on it to make money or not...the kids won't be working, although they may put in an appearance in some rehearsal footage. But can you see Klumsy Kate trying to stumble through a quickstep or do a decent samba roll? Can you see grumpy Len Goodman telling her what a disaster she is? Can you see that possum weave get contorted into performance-ready hairstyles? I think it's going to be hysterically funny!

Fufuss said...

I am a DWTS fan...watch every season. I was planning not to watch if K8 is on the list, but have rethought it & now have to watch to get the right phone numbers ....to get her off of there, if this rumor is true.

If any of you watched a few seasons back, when they had MasterP on the show,you will know what I mean.-That man couldn't dance any dance, if his life depended on it. He looked like an elephant dancing a ballet! BUT,he was on there for quite a number of weeks....can you say fan base or maybe silliness? Who would vote that way? And a number of dancers who had potential & rhythm were voted off because of this craziness.
If K8 is on DWTS (Lordy bee...I hope it's a PR stunt) it will just be more jewels in her hypocrisy "crown" (she never wants to leave her kids for a long time...she's a SAHM...she's doing it for the kids).
-I'm tired of hearing about how she has to support her kids somehow...that's BS! If any of you(us) had made the money that the J&K + 8 show made, we'd never have to work again even with 8(count'em 8)kids.
When you sell your soul...emasculate your spouse...treat your kids like property...dress like trash...and be greedy.......do you think your "star" is going to rise? Think again K8!!!

Reading Pa. Mom said...

For those asking how Kate will train for DWTS in L.A. and who will take care of the kids...well they are apparently bending the rules for her so she can stay at home for the most part:
"Kate's new gig will not keep her away from her children. RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively that the supermom of 8 likely will do most of her practicing near her Pennsylvania home because she insisted on putting her children first. The show was willing to accommodate her because they believe she'll be a huge draw, a network source told RadarOnline.com"
I am guessing her partner will be temporarily relocating to Pennsylvania or NYC.

pinkdiamond611 said...

I have heard mention of Khates appearance on DWTS on a couple of radio stations here in NY. The thing is, both djs mentioned her horrendous hairdo. That is the only thing that makes her famous and she doesn't have that any longer. And, I think I heard she is competing against Pamela Anderson and Shannon Daugherty

Kate has no friends said...

ARGHH!! I can't believe she just won't go away. I love watching DWTS & now she's ruined the new season for me. What about her supposed new TLC show that was to air this spring?

Aunt Chris said...

"hands on Mom". Well, that's one way of putting it. Maybe they'll do a montage of all her "hands on" parenting and show it as one of those pieces that are supposed to give us a feel for the real person...

Padre said...

OMG i just heard on Ryan's radio show Kate Gosselin to be in Playboy not naked but dressed sexy for DWTS. OMG what will the church say?

Teryn said...

Fans on the DWTS Facebook page are having a royal fit that she's going to be on the show.

@Light_Peak (Twitter) said...

Khate won't even get past the warm-up training part. Actually doing physical WORK for probably like 4 hours a day? No way! She's too lazy and too stupid to make it on camera. This requires dedication and comprehension, both which she severely lacks. Also, how does she spin this? She's taking even MORE time away from her kids to do a purely selfish self-indulging delusion. And make nooooo mistakes about it-- Kate being on a show w/ the words "Stars" in it just further swells her obnoxious head! Hopefully she screws up and is quickly axed. But know this MONSTER, she'll probably have an "injury" (accentuate the quotations) that will have her "forced to drop out".

crabbygirl said...

I totally agree with lukebandit that all this "hype" about Kate needing to practice close to home is just damage control. Kate is so selfish. I hope her hillbilly behind gets kicked off the 1st time. I bet Barbara Walters had some pull on getting her on this show.

KB said...

Ok, so Kate's apparently doing this, just makes me cringe, but anyway, here's a quote I saw:

"There was also news this morning that Kate Gosselin will be appearing on this season of DWTS, giving the reality mom another chance to star in a reality show. It will be interesting to see how well she can do in the public eye again, and that if she can actually deal well with criticism."

It's the bit at the end I like, wondering whether she can deal with the criticism.

Just for reference sake, here's where I got that from: http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/2750535/2010_dancing_with_the_stars_lineup.html

I wasn't looking up Kate, just interested in the line-up in general for the show.

Canadian Mom said...

Maybe something *good* will come of this DWTS thing...

Perhaps Kate's *true* hypocritical past will
FINALLY(!) be discovered and reported to the masses...

If she exposes herself (yet again) on DWTS, won't the press have a field day and eventually (FINALLY) discover what a lying, manipulative bitch she is??

*fingers crossed*

Gimme Gimme said...

I knew she would end up in Playboy; she has talked about it too much. She would take her clothes off too if the price was right..."for the kids."

Afterall that organic milk the kids never get is too expensive for mean mommie to buy, so they have to trek in shoes that hurt their feet to the farm a mile down the road where they get it for free and then have to miss supper because they drank too much..3 whole cups full.

I just wonder if it has ever dawned her that she would not be criticized by so many boards and now media outlets if she did not say that everything she does is "for the kids."

Those of us who can quote from basically every episode of the shows (until the very end when we could no longer bear to watch) know better.

I am sure too she wished she woulda kept her mouth shut and got to stay in LA; now she's gotta train in PA and the poor kids have to put up with her sacrificial self.

If she loses it will be their fault because she "sacrificed" to be near them.

Yeah right...next up, book tour.

Canadian Mom said...

As someone mentioned upthread, who really cares if she's on it to make money or not...the kids won't be working, although they may put in an appearance in some rehearsal footage.
*****************************

I care. Kate has never given a sincere thank you, never apologized for her abusive behaviour, never shows humility, and never shows kindness and goodwill toward others.

She is a greedy, manipulative, child exploiter who never has enough attention, money, or sympathy.

She lied in a House of God, cut her children's family out of their life, and stole good people's money.

And she doesn't care.

It makes ME care. JMO.

nj2az07 said...

She won't do well on DWTS. Take directon from someone else? Someone telling her what to do? She can't sit in a white plastic chair and supervise?
She'll tank. I pray she'll be the first to go, or I'm boycotting the season. I'm FURIOUS. this is my favorite show, and it's hit an all time low with this idiot considered a "star".
Who leave 8 children across the country to go be on a dancing show???
Oh wait, a Gosselin would..because all they care about is being famous oh wait, and "doing this for the kids".

JMHO said...

OK, so DWTS has made some concessions to let kate practice in PA now - BEFORE the show has started. It will be a different story once the show gets going and she has to fly back and forth every week. She'll be too "exhausted" to keep up that schedule (and it would be exhausting - practicing all week in PA and flying out to do the show - the time change will do her in. Depending on how long she is on the show, she'll end up having to base herself out of LA - or she'll blame getting voted off early on the PA to LA schedule. Either way she's generating publicity for herself, her book, and her new TLC show (whatever that may be). On another note, if she does stay in PA, I'd hate to be the kids when she came home from a bad day of practice.

konGOaway said...

I can see it now - Kate all sad and saying she can't focus because she misses her kids - the door opens and all eight come running in to see their Mom (remember spring break is coming up soon so all the kiddies get a trip to CA now that they can be filmed again). Kate will cry tears of joy (or $$$$$), whatever, and the show will go on.

fidosmommy said...

Let's just hope she doesn't have a "wardrobe malfunction" on stage.

Barbara in VA said...

I won't watch DWTS this season if they consider Kate G to be any kind of star (gag) or worthy of being on the show. They were a great show and I will miss it, but now they have decided to sink as low as possible in enabling this woman to once again reach an audience. Wonder how all the church men and women she begged money from will now feel about her being in Playboy (again, gag) or shaking it for DWTS?

You think Kate'll be like "So how do you like me NOW?", thumbing her nose at all those people who felt sorry for her family and gave, gave and gave some more? I do.

She couldn't get a rat's ass about anyone but herself and karma has to be just rubbing its hands together, getting ready to come back on old tree-trunk skunk-head with a fury.

tra la la said...

Hey, heard they have added a new dance to the line up on DWTS- the farmer brown square dance. You get xtra points for chewin cud, stompin yur hooves and screechin like a crazy bat (a la cum an git yur popcorn).
I think she just may win that round..

------------------------------
Exactly! During some of the initial segments to introduce each "celebrity" I'm sure it will include a drop-in to see how the kids are feeling about mommy being on a dancing show and having to be away from them...including closeups of mommy's face looking so sad that she has to go back to practice so she (sob) can't stay there with them. Cue camera closeup of eyes filling with tears.

Also, I totally agree with Jeffrey Ross...remember when he was on "roasting" the celebrities a couple seasons ago. One thing he said was something like, "This used to be Dancing with the Stars but it's turning into Dancing with the Barely Recognizable." That's definitely how the show is going lately when they more and more seem to be reaching down to D-listers to help revitalize their careers.

And I totally agree about Len Goodman. He can be loveable and sweet but also can rip a new one if you really don't do even remotely well. I did kind of notice how he favored Kelly Osbourne all season so who knows if he'll take pity on Kate when he hears of her sacrificing "for the kids" tale and comes under her spell of poor, pitiful me routine. You never know which way he could go...I hope he's as smart & discerning as I think he is and doesn't fall for "the act." And absolutely yes, let's get Kate partnered up with Maks! The only act that works for him is for you to get the steps right! He wants to be in the final 2 and he's not about to take any crap.

Jenny said...

Oh no, I just had this thought! I can see the camera going into the house while the kids are with their not-a-nanny watching mommy on tv. "Hey kids, what do you think of mommy's dancing?" And then the flood of adorable comments and camera shots, all to win over the hearts & minds (and votes) of the country. I'm telling you, this could turn out to be manipulation at its finest!

Candice said...
Bu...bu...BUT what if she breaks her leg?????
________________________
LOL LOL! Yes, we all remeber how she can't be out of commission-she has 8 kids!

As for the practice in PA. I will bet she will be in PA, but holed up in a hotel as much as possible..

Do you expect her to dance and reherse all day and then go home to make meals and do homework?

I will bet there has been more plastic surgery than we can even guess.

I do hope Whoopie asks her how she can claim to be a single mom, yet she's out dancing while Jon is taking care of the kids.

I do think there will be footage of the kids (in matching outfits)..Maybe as a surprise on a big screen and then she will cry.

capslock said...

Just hearing that it's official (Kate on Dancing With The Stars), I'm enraged. STAY HOME AND TAKE CARE OF YOUR CHILDREN!! All she wanted was to be a Mom and now she's doing everything but. I pity those poor children.

Jenny said...

JMHO said: She'll be too "exhausted" to keep up that schedule (and it would be exhausting - practicing all week in PA and flying out to do the show - the time change will do her in.
--------------------------
JMHO...thanks to your comment I think I just figured it out! After the first show, she'll come back on the 2nd show with a special announcement (spotlight & all cameras on K8): Rather than face being voted out, she'll say she has tried really hard to hang in there and even though the practice sessions have been harder than she ever dreamed, it doesn't even begin to compare to the heartache she's feeling in being away from the children so much. Therefore, she has chosen to drop out (translation: I prefer dropping out vs being thrown out.) Tears, tissue & hugs ensue (with spotlight & cameras full on her face).

Ok, the only fly in the ointment of my theory is that I'm not sure she'd still be able to take the full $125,000 paycheck with her if she dropped out, as opposed to being voted out. But who knows, they might make another "special arrangement" for her because she's once again for the gazillioneth time, (all together now, say it with me), "a sacrificing mother of 8 kids."

Ok...I'm thinking that my efforts to stay one step ahead of this woman's web of deceit is beginning to take its toll on me! :)

Jenny said...

Moo said: I do think there will be footage of the kids (in matching outfits)..Maybe as a surprise on a big screen and then she will cry.
------------------------------

Good one, Moo...I didn't think of this particular ploy. Oh absolutely yes...a shot of the kids missing her in PA while she's in LA, with lots of closeups of the quivering chin and eyes filling with tears followed by, "Oh, I thought I could do this but I can't go on! I just can't go on! I'm missing my babies too much!" Followed by the judges all talking to her behind the scenes consoling her and encouraging her to stay (spotlight & cameras again of course). "Oh alright, I think I can at least try to hang on for another episode." (And then later a hot mic will be on without her noticing and and we all get to hear her say, "So, how'd I do, do you think they bought it?")

Ok g'friends...I'm starting to feel pretty evil myself right now with all my comments! I've been on too much of a roll tonight! I'll shut up now and let others have a turn! :)

"zoey said...
100 bucks says she is the First one voted off! it pretty much starts off as a popularity contest and she is not popular. Also, i cant even wait to see her stumpy legs dancing. HILARIOUS!!!!"


I think people are sick and tired of the Gosselins, whether you are a fan of Kate's or not. I've found this show to be popularity based, and whether Kate is good or not, she will be off soon. Kim Kardashian went home the second week last year, and she is/was the most popular "draw" on the E network and tabloids, too.

As for her (Kate's) looks, I personally think she looks great - she cannot help the way her legs are shaped. However, she is SO UGLY on the inside that I can't stand the sight of her.

Kate is OVEREXPOSED and I haven't met anyone to this day who isn't tired of hearing about her or seeing her on another magazine. Eventually, her popularity will die and she will go away. Unfortunately, her children will have paid the ultimate price.

Just when I thought I might have seen the last of Kate Gosselin...

Missy said...

If the kids come to see Kate perform and are on tv, I wonder to what extent the child labor laws must be followed since they are in state of CA. If they are filmed for the little promos/videos shown between performances, is that considered "work" for them because they are already actors under contract with another network? No matter what, if those children are filmed in CA, I hope the laws are followed to protect them unlike PA.

All I Can Say Is Ho-Hum, BORING! said...

Oh, yes, Kate being on DWTS is so, SO newsworthy right alongside people dying in the Chilean earthquake.

Sorry, ABC; you've lost me as a member of the DWTS home audience with this "big" announcement.

debbiejo said...

Dancing with the "stars". aka "dancing with the wannabees"

This "great mom" of 8 will be working full time on a show that could potentially ( God forbid) keep her away from home for several months.

Yup, mom of 8 small children off doing her own thing "for the kids'.

Sick and sad.

SaNdY said...

I have always enjoyed DWTS....I am disgusted to hear that Katie Irene will be tromping all over the dance floor with those tree stumps of hers...I can deal with this, but I cannot deal with the kids being filmed again....

just for grins and giggles, have checked FB very shortly after announcement and it seems to be the concensus of middle america is that Kate has lost her "it" factor. None are to pleased about her being on show.
I'm sure the sheeple will accuse every reader of GWOP and other "anti" kate sights of creating bogus FB accounts and making multiple posts .... but... they need to get real and see that their queen has been dethroned... she just doesn't know it yet (or just won't accept it)....
Til then, will make sure to have popcorn and pop in hand to watch this disaster dance.....

SusyQ said...

I have been a fan of DWTS and I am utterly disgusted that Kate has clawed her way onto that show. She is no 'star' and having her on the show just takes away from the show altogether..I sure will not be tuning in..I have enjoyed being Jon and Kate free for a very long time and was hoping they would fade to obscurity forever

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

Ya know, this is probably the REAL reason why Kate is practising in PA rather than LA - the kids can be taped at her rehearsals without labour laws coming in to play! Hah I'm such a cynic that I immediately thought it was suspicious when I read the reason for Kate practising in PA was 'for the kids' (yeah did anyone think it was because she has to parent them...?)

Anway, I don't know if it's shown here in Aus (I don't watch Australia's version, let alone any other) but if it is, I'd say it'd be shown in our off season, or on pay tv (perhaps even both).

I've been thinking - the 'tree trunk legs' comments doesn't make sense - after all she'll lose weight on the show, just like Kelly Osborne did, so why use that as a reason/excuse for her not to be on? (That is, if she's not kicked off early - but if she's pracising now, we should notice bit of a difference in her size at the start anyway)

I too, checked the Facebook DWTS page out of curiosity and find the comments about Kate hilarious - hardly anyone wants her on!

Brummygirl said...

Well, just when you think the world has had enough disaster...on comes the announcement of Kate joining DWTS and none other than Jake the Bachelor.
The other girls are so glamourous that they will make Kate look like she just stepped off the farm...well she did actually as she *farmed her children* for this to be possible.
I would not miss this failure for the world, she may get symathy votes from the people who do not know her circumstances.
For those not going to watch, think a minute, we can do our best to vote for all the other people other than Kate. We have a certain following here.
Now I temper this with I know I cannot tell people to vote but am just stating my opinion.
The World Has Gone Mad My Friends!!!
You can bet your sweet lives that the kids will be at reahearsal and in front row watching Kate at some point or other, most probably the first night. And as they cut to the kids Kate will have tears in her eyes and go hug the kids, for what better p.r. could she have.
If anyone has gravol, please pass it I may throw up!!

Surprised, but Not Surprised said...

Ugh! I knew the rumors of Kate being on Dancing with the Stars and it made me sick she'll be on this season. If she makes it past week one, I do not know if I'll finish the season.

My prediction is she won't be paired with Maks, although I'm sure that is who she wanted. The celebrities can request a certain partner and some of the women have all but said they wanted to dance with him due to his popularity. If Kate thought she could be in the spotlight longer, she'd be begging for him. However, there are *gasp* real celebrities who are more famous than her. Maks was the one who revealed a week or so ago that Pamela Anderson would be on the show, so I bet he already knows he's her partner. If it's not her, Shannen Dorethy has the image that would go along with his. There is no way an obnoxious man like him would want to put up with someone even more obnoxious like Kate.

We all know her intro will be her bragging about her fame as a reality star. I'm sure we'll see a small clip of the children (who she will need to exploit big time to have any shot of doing well on a popularity contest) with her bragging about what a wonderful mother she is. *Cries on cue* But since she's now a SINGLE MOTHER, she has to prove to her children that she can do anything even if it's scary, so here she is. Then we'll see her practicing with her partner. Everyone be sure to invest in some ear plugs as I'm sure her infamous glass shattering screetching and squealing will be heard.

Can she actually dance? I recall she and Jon were practicing ballroom dancing for an episode of their show that was never aired. He tried to get her to dance on Cara's special day at the skating rink, but Kate would have none of that. My guess is she is having to practice big time to be ready.

I feel for the poor, poor man who will be forced to be her partner. We all see how she belittles men, so I feel for whatever this guy has to endure for the few weeks of training and hopefully one week of showtime.

BTW, as for where Kate's rehearsals are held, this is not new. Many of the celebrities drag their partners all over the country as the weeks go on so they can keep up with their real job. Heather Mills did her training in England and only came to the U.S. a few days before the show aired. She and her partner traveled to and from the two countries "for the sake of her child" the entire time she was there. I can't stand the woman either, but what they are doing for her is no different than what they are doing for every other celebrity on the show.

Kay said...

I emailed ABC that I would not be watching this season of DWTS due to their decision to have a child exploiter on. Won't make a difference but I don't know how they came to the decision to have her on in the first place?!?

They should've had the octo mom and Florence Henderson and Marion Ross and other faux tv mothers and had a theme season this year.

Vanessa said...

NEpsych:
So when Jon is the primary caregiver, he's "playing house"?
What's Khate playing "when" she's home with them?
The double standard is ridiculous!
Was Jon "playing" all those years before she booted him out?
They HAD the show, WHY did she have to agree to SO MUCH touring?
HE was the single parent LONG before she labelled herself with that title! Plus, with the threat of "severe punishment" hovering over his head, what kind of job can he get? Only SHE's permitted to expoit her notoriety?
Only SHE can pursue a "career" in showbiz? I bet he can't even LEGALLY write a tell-all book (get a ghost writer Jon!)

Good one, Moo...I didn't think of this particular ploy. Oh absolutely yes...a shot of the kids missing her in PA while she's in LA, with lots of closeups of the quivering chin and eyes filling with tears followed by, "Oh, I thought I could do this but I can't go on! I just can't go on! I'm missing my babies too much!" (snipped)
------------------------

Oh yuck, that is exactly the kind of thing they'd do. The over the top sappy drivel & everything we know to be lies to try & continue to put that harpy in a positive light. They don't seem to have noticed that a good part of the public has already caught on. Be nice if she was booed from the stage for trying such a ploy, be nice if the public got to show her once & for all how they really feel about dear little katie & all her manipulations.

I hope the church people she scammed & used vote against her. Those you walk on, on your way "up" can oft be found in a position to bring you back down. There will be so many there giving performances that are more worthy of votes.

Interesting how the definition of "star" has been so horribly maimed & lowered over the years. An insult to those who truly had the talent to achieve it, especially those labelled as "triple threats" back in the day. I think the industry needs to pick itself up again & shake the dust off.

kate & her handlers need to sit down & realize she isn't ever going to be a Norma Shearer, Marie Dressler, Gloria Swanson, Bette Davis or any of the others, ones that were real stars, ones that WORKED & had the talent to become stars, it's laughable. Even if we could get her to shut up, she'd be no Theda Bara or Louise Brooks. kate does not posses the talent these women had in their baby finger, hell, while I'm at it she couldn't even hope to be a Pete the Pup or Rin Tin Tin! lol, there we go, kate Gosselin she's no Rin Tin Tin!

Besides, men won't be giving kate a second glance, they'll all be too busy watching for a wardrobe malfunction from Pam Anderson. To be honest, so to speak, my money's on the gold medal skater, if he can translate what he does in skates to shoes, he should be an absolute joy to watch.

Ella's Mum said...

I thought Kate looked great on Jimmy last night, but as my husband pointed out, who wouldn't with all the profesional help she has to get "camera ready"

I did find her so obnoxious, especially when Jimmy asked if she was competative and she "urrgh, have you SEEN my show"!!! WTF. She gives a crap interview and she didn't get his joke about bringing one of the kids out at each performance and pretending they where sick for votes! She cannot answer a question quickly, she always pauses, ums, then arhhs, then says something stupid.

Ali from the batchelorette was much more engaging and enjoyable to watch

Silly women !

Just heard a commercial for Dwts. They called her "Realites most liked TV Mom" or something like that.

I guess Jon will be on Celebrity Fit Club next.

yes it's funny how pro-Kate ROL is. Clearly it's in cahoots with TLC. But if you go to other sites, like US or dwts/facebook, the comments are overwhelmingly anti-Kate. Most want her to take care of her damn kids already.

Jon can write a tell all, in the same way that Princess Diana wrote a tell all with Andrew Morton, by allowing him access to her friends and family.

".. see her in the boardroom."

Yes, Kate G could be the kiss of death for The Donald, too. She'd turn the board room into the bored room.

Where's my remote?

Wonder how long til K8 shows up in the 'celebrity' boxing ring ala the other losers who can't keep the spotlight any other way, like Tonya Harding? Wait for it... it's coming.

In their defense, I think they are really young because it's like a middle school exchange.

Check in at a couple of different K8 sites on rol. If real middle schoolers are using the language there I despair for more than just the G8. On the other hand, sheeple really do exist. Oh my..........

And then, finally, her coup de grĂ¢ce, "Celebrity Rehab."

Tami said...

She is not practicing at home because she wants to be there to make dinner. If she is there, the kids can be shown in lots of scenes to manipulate the emotions of sheeple. If she were to go to CA like she'd prefer, the kids would probably not be flying out there to be seen. Who would take them?? She has no family or friends. She sure wouldn't let Jon take them and having Steve do it would not look proper.

Oh, believe me. My daughter is in 7th grade. THIRTEEN. And you should see the Facebook postings of kids at her school. Some are absolutley appalling. The F word flies, some are sexually expliciit. I can't figure out if their parents don't know about it or know but don't care.

Kate is TLC's million dollar baby. They KNOW how to keep her on TV and in the press. She is in for the long haul, I am afraid.

Boy, would I love to see her on Survivor, or whatever it is called!

I don't watch it, haven't since their first show, but I would watch just to see her dirty and hungry.

I don't think any of the other cast members would give a hoot about how she is a "mom first and foremost." That would be her just desserts.

Please, TLC, get her on Survivor!

An interesting photo essay from Newsweek regarding multiples and America's fascination with them:

Another interesting article from the Washington Post, asking if Kate and Jon had been able to do IVF versus IUI, would their marriage have survived? (IUI tends to result in more multiples. IVF allows you to control the number of embryos you're implanting, thereby minimizing the chance of getting sextuplets, septuplets etc.)

Personally, I don't believe so, but I do think it can make a case for what many have claimed over the years, which is that Kate planned her high risk pregnancy.

Kate often uses phrases something like, "I am a mom first. Everything I do is for my kids."

She seems to think that is a one-woman club.

Just once, I would like to see one of her interviewers come back with something like, "That is how all mothers are. You are not alone in your feelings."

We moms do that. That is why we decided to have children. We put our children first because they ARE our children.

Even if he wanted to... TLC has him by the nuts and won't let him do a damn thing.... Kate on the other hand.... well... she would be allowed to pose for Playboy if she wanted to.

Not fair!

And so it continues. Kate Gosselin will the keynote speaker at the 2010 Expo for Women in South Bend, Indiania on March 12 and 13.

The woman is NEVER going to go away. Ever. She is in it to win it. TLC keeps this nasty woman out there at all times.

I believe she has just begun.

brennie said...

Wow - Y'all think Pam's kids being able to see their mom on the internet graphically having sex would be less traumatic?

Kate has some really awful ones like laundry room floor and gumgate, but still not as bad in my estimation.

brennie said...

DWTS voting results were bad at times because some people tried to manipulate the voting. That's why my plea is for people to please not mess up a good show just because they don't like Kate. Let her lose naturally, I truly believe she can't loosen up enough to dance well

Vanessa said...

I agree that the Pamela video (should her kids EVER see it, I don't think they would willingly, I think they'd avoid it all costs)is something those kids have to live with BUT that video was stolen and put out there by OTHERS.
All the footage of Kate basically being a nasty mother not only is traumatic because those kids LIVED it, BUT Kate knowingly and purposely allowed the good/bad/ugly to be filmed AND put out there for all to see!
Say what you want about Pamela, she expoits HERSELF NOT HER CHILDREN!
