Elimination??? Something IS fishy! I found this on Yahoo: a quote from Kate reagrading watching others dance on DWTS last week:

“We were cheering them all on. I’m going to be sad when people go. I loved seeing everybody dance. It was wonderful,” Gosselin says.

That says it all! She WILL be staying long enough to see OTHER PEOPLE LEAVE! I say the show is fixed

KatesDancingFlintstoneFeet said...

FIXED VOTES? She's STAYING!! And she knows it!
(see 4th paragraph)

http://tvwatch.people.com/2010/03/28/kate-gosselins-birthday-wish-stay-on-dancing-with-the-stars/

And I guarantee we'll se the tups paired-up, doing a little ballroom dance tonight!

Kate is d.e.s.p.e.r.a.t.e. to stay on the show longer than 2 weeks. She has one heck of an attorney bill to pay for all those fancy schmancy Hollywood lawyers she hired to destroy Jon.

Remember when she was quoted in her magazine ( People ) in January that she was "angry" about being in debt...debt that she shouldn't have....but that it was nothing hard work wouldn't fix?

Remember how everyone was wondering how she was paying for all these high priced attorneys? Well, here ya go. I guesstimate the $200,000 will go to paying the lawyers and each $75 grand after that will be hers to keep up with her incessant grooming.

She's not dancing to support her kids. She's dancing to pay off her land sharks who chewed Jon up and spit him out.

Virginia Pen Mom said...

Z on TV expects ABC to give Kate outrageous help tonight.

He also writes, "Last week, the producers flashed video of her eight kids looking adorable just before they gave the numbers viewers could use to vote for Gosselin. I'm sorry, but I do not believe any of the other contestants got such help."

I'm not saying the votes aren't fixed because they probably are, but I took that paragraph as more of Khate's arrogance. (Like it hasn't even occurred to her that she'll be the one voted out.) HOPING against all hope that she gets the boot up the *** this week....and that it's steel toed and sharply pointed....

Hmm said...

Surely DWTS and ABC rank integrity higher than their love for Katie Irene.

Louise said...

If this show is fixed, then it is doomed. The American public aren't that stupid.
Thought TLC was completed behind Kate re all legal and living expenses while they were stomping poor Jon into the ground.
Comment please!

I think she will disappear soon.

Pretend you are seasoned viewer of DWTS and never saw an episdoe of J and K, but just saw some people mags at the check out counter.

She's sort of the entertainment or joke on DWTS. Im waiting for her to leave so I can enjoy the serious part of the competition.

Jen said...

Voting for Buzz tonight. Might as well vote for someone who has a work ethic and seems to be enjoying what he's doing, not simply phoning it in for the fame and a paycheck. He's an American hero who deserves a few more shots at some fun!

Tell your friends...vote for Buzz! :)

~Shari~ said...

(To the tune of Footloose)

Gotta cut Kate loose, footloose
Kicked off with steel toed boots
Please, Tony
Pull her offa her knees
Kate, get back
C'mon before we crack
Lose your hooker shoes
Everybody cut her loose

She's playing a fool
She's breaking every rule
Corrupted in her heart
She's yearning, yearning for some
Somebody to tell her
The world don't notice her lies
But I'm here to tell her
The world is passing her by.......

Cuz we're gonna cut her loose, footloose
Kicked off with steel toed boots
Oowhee, Tony
Shake her, shake her for me
Whoa, Bruno
C'mon, and let her go
Lose the hooker shoes
Everybody cut Kate loose

Oh, ooh, oh, oo...cut Kate loose! Oh, ooh, oh, oo, cut Kate loose!

Everybody cut, everybody cut (clap clap) everybody cut, everybody cut (clap clap) everybody cut, everybody cut.....everybody CUT KATE LOOSE!

Brummygirl said...

Well this all reminds me of when the Brady Bunch went on to Search for the Stars to win $20,000 to pay their parents' back taxes!! :)
Can you imagine all the kids doing *It's a Sunshine Day* in their new little dance shoes and costumes.
Yeh, that's right kids, dance for your Mommy!!

Remember the song Puppet on a String by Sandie Shaw?

Love is just like a merry-go-round
With all the fun of the fair
One day I'm feeling down on the ground
Then I'm up in the air
Are you leading me on
Tomorrow will you be gone


I may win on the round-a-bout
Then I'll lose on the swings
In or out there is never a doubt
Just who's pulling the strings
I'm all tied up in you
But where's it leading me to

Just a Puppet on a String

Nobody Likes a Narcissist said...

About VOTING tonight - I'm doing what I did last week which is voting for the two lowest scored dancers besides Khate. Last week that was Buzz and Aiden. I think that’s going to be the fastest way to get Khate voted off, by throwing votes to the two lowest scored dancers (besides her if she ends up in the bottom two tonight). I still think she’s going home tomorrow night. I honestly do not think she had enough people voting for her to save her from the low judges’ score.

Actually, to be safe, I think I’ll give all my votes to Aiden this week because I think Buzz seems to be getting a lot of popularity votes, so he’ll be okay. I had no idea who the heck Aiden even was before last week, and I have no idea if he has a big enough fan base voting for him. I think Aiden needs the most help and if we can save him, Khate will be going home!

Mary Ann Ogle said...

I was just reading Meredith Veira's pro-Kate article. Well I guess she doesn't watch the show that much or she would see how awful Kate is to her kids. Maybe someone should send her copies of Watergate, Gumgate, Cupcakegate, and all the other proof we have of how horrible she is.

You forgot to mention the first part of the article where Kate said she hoped she wouldn't be the first to go, that you get close to everyone and then she said you cheer them all on etc.

That makes a difference in how you interpret things...to have all the info not just part.

..........and the fact that DWTS may be rigged is surprising to some of you?? Come on...Fake is the Queen of the "realist reality show"....lol.

They love the ratings..they are going to keep her around, although they may not be 100% truthful with her as to the fact that people are tuning in to see her fail.

Reminds me of the move "Sunset Boulevard" where Gloria Swanson plays the role of Norma Desmond. Norma Desmond was a character who was a silver screen actress, much different than Fake, but she lived an extravagant livestyle long after her 15 minutes of fame faded...convinced she was a huge star and she had photos of herself everywhere in her house. She lived for the moment when she would be called upon to do her next picture...even though most people had no idea who she was. The only friends she had were ones hired by her...and her butler was secretly sending her loads of fan mail so she would think she was still in the public eye. In the movie, Norma was quoted that being in front of the camera "is my life and will always be my life".

Nope, sorry to say. There needs to be some realism as to how the world operates in this day and age. Gone are the days when truth and honesty were fought for. Nowadays the almighty dollar rules, and sorry folks, truth be known Kart sells. And money IS the bottom line in the media nowadays. If you really believe otherwise then you definitely were born in the wrong decade (like alot of us here............)

Huh? Don't you think TLC paid for her lawyers? She is their million dollar baby! They made darn sure that Kart would come through very well represented.

Charles said...

Not all of us want Kart to be eliminated tonight.

I don't.

I want Kart to dance till she drops.

She needs to know how hard work really feels.

I want her to be too exhausted to cackle.

I want her to embarrass and shame herself, if that is possible.

Then, in a few weeks, I want her to go out in a flame of shame.

I am voting for Kart. I hope she doesn't go home tonight.

Lorrie said...

Does anyone know the dancing order for tonight's episode?

Twitch said...

Man....what would be worse? Getting beat by Buzz or Kate?

I would rather be eliminted over an American icon who walked on the moon even if he is 80. But if I got beat by a crabby mother of 8 whose sole job is to maintain her looks, I think I'd go into hiding for a year or two.

Personally, if I were on DWTS and I KNEW I was a terrible dancer and others deserved to stay over me, I wouldn't have it in me to let someone else leave and me stay. If I knew I truly didn't deserve to be there anymore because others were better, I'd bow out. The guilt of someone better than me leaving would eat me alive.

It's a dance competition and sadly it's turned into a popularity competition and/or a battle between the haters and sheeple....nothing to do with skill and moves and hidden talent.

Buzz wasn't good. But he's 80. There is no excuse for Kate to be dancing like an 80 year old man. She needs to go home.

This site predicts who will be voted off by measuring the busy signal (I know that's a very basic explanation, but the website can explain it better) They predict that Kate and Tony will be safe.

DING DING DING!!!!! They flashed a video of Auntie Vie. Not her two sons. She doesn't exploit her kids. Doesn't need to. She doesn't have to play the mom card because she's likeable and talented on her own. She used her "girls" to get famous, not her kids. LOL.

My hubby was commenting last week about all the boobage on the show. He saw Kate's and asked me what she was wearing under her dress. He said they looked "weird". Then someone here nailed it and said they looked like torpedoes. That is EXACTLY what they looked like. Then when Pam came on he said, Now THAT'S what I'm talkin' 'bout!"

( Does anybody remember watching Britney Spears a long time ago on Saturday Night Live, when she was doing the monolouge and had on those fake mechanical boobs under her clothes and her boobs started twirling and rotating while she talked? That's what Kate's looked like last week! I was waiting for them to start twirling under her dress! )

I agree with this 100%. TLC paid for all of Kate's attorneys. That is why the end results were so favorable for her and not Jon. Jon had to pay for his attorneys all by his lonesome. If anyone is in debt, it is Jon and not Katie Irene.

Kate is loaded and is in "IT" for the fame and greed. Nothing more nothing less. Why everyone can't see pass this is beyond me.

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

This is my take on things, too.

In fact, IMO, almost the entire Gosselin saga is manufactured.

Over time, I've gotten to a point where I pretty much assume the entire Gosselin brand is scripted for maximum drama and resultant ratings.

K8G seems willing to play her role whatever way it is scripted, so long as it keeps the attention on her and the $$$ rolling in.

Apathy continues to gather and expand around me about the Gosselin brand. I'm pretty much all Gosselin'd out at this juncture.

MickeyMcKean said...

I watched American Idol the first few years it was on but I never voted.

In the past I have seen an episode or two of DWTS but I have never voted, and even though I did watch last Monday's episode, I did not vote for anyone.

I will vote tonight though and IF Kate is around for the next few weeks, NO ONE will be able to convince me that this reality show is real. No, I will have proof that it is a sham because Kate has no business of being there in the first place.

The kicker is I think a lot of real DWTS fans will agree with me.

So ABC/TLC/Kate, as you read this, make a note that yes I'm tuning in for the Kate train wreck but at the same time I am also enjoying watching Erin, Shannon, Niecy, Nicole, Evan, Buzz and of course Ms. Anderson :) Now that is a real mom that I find entertaining to watch!

So you actually have an opportunity to gain a new DWTS fan to your show UNLESS I have reason to believe that the show is fake. If Kate remains on your show while real dancers are being eliminated, your show will have no credibility. None.

JMO.

Laurie said...

Kate will not be voted off because ABC does not want her off the show YET....there will come a time when she will have to go because she won't be able to keep up with those that are better than her. While I don't believe that any of the networks have any integrity (they're in it for the ratings) DWTS is a popular show and if they keep her on too long they will lose the core audience that has watched from the begining. Although I won't be watching (24 and House rule in my house)I'd like to hear about a little blood, sweat and tears - real ones not manufactured ones. It won't get any easier on her and there will come a time when she'll have to put up of shut up. I don't think the other contestants would stick around long or keep quiet if they thought the "fix was in" for Kate.

Jane in California said...

If ABC truly does try to rig votes so that Kate stays longer, look to the judges for signs of their unhappiness, especially Len. I think all three judges take this competition fairly seriously, and to have it made a mockery so that Kate can last longer won't sit well with them. I remember how annoyed they all got when Master P stayed past his expiration date.

It would be pretty foolish of ABC to rig the voting. Anything else that falls short of actual rigging - yes, they'd do it. Such as flashing an adorable picture of Kate's 8 little money makers just before her voting number. We'll know the fix is in if the judges go easy on her arthritic jive dance.

Charles - your post made me laugh. Yes, I want Kate to work hard for every penny she earns from this show. For once in her miserable excuse of a life, I want to see her have to struggle, rehearse even though she doesn't feel like it, and then still get up to perform and be unable to do even a halfway decent job. Her adult babysitter can't help her in the rehearsals, nor on the dance floor.

I won't go so far as to vote for her, but I am taking guilty pleasure in watching her make a complete ass of herself.

Come on now. You can't possibly know this as fact ( that TLC paid her attorney fees ). I have loathed this woman from day 1 and I do know she's in all this for the fame) but I personally don't believe TLC paid her attorney fees. I think she was just counting on being a superstar after Jon and these high priced attorneys were counting on that, too. And it didn't pan out.

I think some people get so carried away with their hatred for her ( and I do hate her, too ), that every little inuendo or rumor, or something you want to believe, becomes fact as soon as it's discussed. There is no way of knowing TLC picked up her lawyer fees, so let's not get carried away like the looney psycho fans do and make assumptions just because it's something people want to believe. I think we should stick to the facts as Kate has presented them for all to see, and TLC paying for her divorce is not fact.

This goes for the kids supposedly dancing tonight. It was mentioned and discussed a few times as a possiblity ( Kate is certainly very predictable ), but now a few people here think it's a fact and will happen. I think the emotions and anger about this woman are getting the better of some people.

Believe it when you see it. And count on the fact she will give you plenty of crap to see.

Brummygirl said...

Buckeye:
That one line in her statement that said she knew the producers were going to let her go later, only confirms it is a set up.
I believe it is planned for her to be on a few weeks but when the really better dancers are getting down to the wire, she will be let go. ABC could not afford their reputation and ratings to send her to the end, unless there is divine intervention and she actually learns how to dance. Nah...what am I saying, that would be too much like hard work.
Kate..the empty vessel..fill her up with flotsam and getsam, wind her up and watch her go!!

oksysmom said...

I've been wracking my brain trying to remember what Kate's "dancing" reminded me of. I finally got it. Lucille Ball on "I Love Lucy". The episode where Lucy takes ballet lessons. Kate's just as graceful as Lucy was. Only Lucy was playing it for laughs. Regrettably, Kate isn't.

SwingsandRoundabouts said...

If all goes as in past seasons, the kids will not dance. They will most probably "surprise" Khart and Tony in the rehearsal studio. They will appear on tape if they appear at all. If Khart manages to go further in the competition they might show up in the audience, but not tonight. Just my prediction.

As a long time fan of DWTS, I'll be very disappointed if Khart lasts more than a couple of weeks, but I'm almost sure that won't happen. Call me naive. If she does last longer than better dancers, I'll not be watching any more. I will have been "had".

DWTS Is Her Win-Win Either Way said...

If she loses early in the DWTS game, she's gotten a lot of exposure again yet doesn't have to keep putting in the hard work each week. She'll have an easy excuse, that it was too hard practicing coast to coast and trying to raise eight children. (It couldn't possibly be because she's got two left feet and looks like a mechanical mannequin.)

Of course, if she keeps on staying in the competition week after week, the kids will be the draw for all the DWTS watchers who didn't know who the heck she was or anything about her, and who will now "ooh and aah" over the cute Eight props...this will be the contingent who "Rally For The MOM!!" on behalf of moms EVERYWHERE. (Not!!)

I'm hoping that the "popularity" aspect of the dancing competition will ultimately be trumped by SKILL and good performance. I've watched DWTS a few times and I'm a total dance novice but even I can eventually tell who's looking sharp and who's faking it.

Another side of me hopes that as the kids are paraded around to help Kate's case with the voters, maybe the children will find it fun to watch Mommy dance and dress in pretty clothes. I hope it doesn't bother the little ones too much that it's another man dancing with Kate rather than Daddy. It's lighthearted-enough "entertainment" for the kids for now, although I'm sure they'd rather be at Disneyland. They won't know at this age what they'll realize later when going back over the memories Kate has duly recorded for them on film and in her books---that they were far more than just eight little Gosselins...yep, more like eight little meal tickets, placed where they were needed to suit the circumstances (Mommy's little vehicles to fame and fortune...but all on the kids' behalf, of course).

CarolS461 said...

Kate's new blog. Pretty ironic that it's called "Kate's Take." Get it?

http://blogs.discovery.com/kate/

IDModo said...

Kate's blog on TLC must have been written by an intern. There's not a single "ish" in the text, and there are several words of more than two syllables. No "um's" either. And it's basically full of the same self-serving crap that TLC spews about her every chance they get.
How stupid does TLC think we are? It's like Kate and TLC are living in an alternate reality that has no bearing on real life.
We have scads of evidence that all is not as they want to portray it, that can be seen on videos of the show all over the internet.
Kate and TLC, if you say something loud enough and often enough, that STILL DOESN'T MAKE IT TRUE!!

qtrfan said...

I suspect DWTS will keep Kate to maintain ratings for awhile. Then all of a sudden, she will develop an "injury" so she can leave without being voted off.

That takes care of two things - keeps (sort of) the integrity of the show and lets her leave on her own.

readerlady said...

Several of my favorite shows "House", HIMYM, and "Chuck" are on tonite (record 2, watch 1), so I'm counting on y'all to let me know how Khate doesn't. As far as her being eliminated early - unfortunately, we already have the template for that scenario - Master P. In fact, that's one reason I stopped watching the show. It got so frustrating watching that uncooperative, leadfooted jerk stick around while better dancers left. I think we'll see the same thing with Khate the Kart's Dancing Kankles. She will be kept on for a few weeks, but I doubt seriously that she'll be one of the finalists. There just aren't enough Sheeple votes to carry her over after the voting pool narrows. She's unlikely to garner much higher scores from the judges, so it does come down to the viewer votes.

@oksysmom - I'd forgotten about that episode of "I Love Lucy" until you brought it up. Thanks for the memories. Lucy did play it for laughs, but she really was a dancer. She started out as a Vegas showgirl and some of her early movies were in the chorus line of MGM musicals.

US Weekly is reporting that Khate spent her birthday apart from her kids yesterday. Wonder what happened to them flying out to the coast? Also wonder what will happen re Jon's birthday Thursday.

Aunt Chris said...

I think they have the "s" in the wrong place. It should be "Kate Takes"

Pony said...

Entertainment Tonight reported that Jon was with the kids and Kate spent her birthday alone. So...maybe if the kids were at the airport they were picking Jon up?

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

I get the feeling that they're trying to force their own modern fairytale on us. There are a lot of elements of a fairytale in this whole debacle.

I don't think kate writes that blog, it doesn't sound that much like her, although it is a load of self serving crap. Another place for the crazies to post.

@oksysmom Yes! I love that episode & you're right on all counts.

capslock said...

It's 9:27 EST and Kate has yet to dance. However, whenever the camera is on her before the show goes to break, she keeps on saying I LOVE YOU to the camera, either verbally or with hand signals. It's getting VERY ANNOYING!!

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

Well, K8G is only doing all this eyeheartpoint stuff because, of all the mothers ever to have lived, SHE loves her children MORE than any other mother EVER has loved.

We are supposed to be duly impressed with all her mugging to the camera, even after seeing her short temper explosions with and in front of her kids?

Not happening.

Jennifer Harris said...

Oh dear Lord, that was so embarrassingly bad, I almost had to look away. Cringe-worthy, and I'm not just saying that to be mean.

GOD. The judge with the thick accent said she turned that song into a nightmare for him and she's a Stepford Wife who needs to take acting lessons. She rolled her eyes.

The older guy said nerves are breaking her.

Carrie Ann said she just kept bouncing when she didn't know what to do, and can't give her props for not being a performer and "trying."

Scores: 5, 5, and 5. Icky. And well-deserved.

Did you see what a GREAT dancer Tony was compared to Kate? I felt really sorry for him.

Lillie Mae Acres said...

Oh, this is way too fake and they aren't even trying hard to hide the fact. I'm watching it as I post this, only KATE can turn it all around to where she's the victim. I told you in an earlier post that DWTS was just casting her for the ratings. Why does people like this? She'll stay at least until near the end. Ugh, why can't she just go crawl in a hole.

Pony said...

Kate's dancing reminds me of the young girls that I used to watch at ballet recitals who were visibly counting their steps as they moved across the stage. She should try Irish step dancing - you actually are supposed to keep your upper body stiff and motionless. ;-)

She just said that "Neither Tony nor I are quitters." Huh? She quit on her marriage - not much more you can quit on, Kate.

I do feel for poor Tony. Someone must really not like him to have given him Kate for a partner. And boy did she sound like she was talking to Jon while talking to Tony.

capslock said...

It was WORSE than last week. I think Kate's body looked great, but her dancing was AWFUL! My husband was laughing so hard saying, "SHE IS SO STIFF!" She forgot a whole part of the dance. One of the judges called her a Stepford Wife. Of course, Kate made a dig at the end (on Jon) how marriage is soooo bad (paraphrasing.) She CANNOT last. I don't care how many people vote for her. By the way, she scored a 15. Slightly better than Buzz's 12.

Hell on Heels said...

That woman has so much contempt on her face. East to look at her and see why "everybody quits on her in life".

Her treatment of her dance partner was comparable to the way she treated Jon. Neither of them are doing things they way SHE needs them to be done so SHE is successful. Their job is to make her look good. When will she realize that no amount of framing is going to make this woman look fluid, musical or graceful. She would have faired much better on Celebrity Apprentice.

Comparing the couples that are in the bottom...at least the others are competing with a smile and not making excuses.

Can't See Sheep said...

NEVER!!! never wear a short dress again! Did she botox her entire body??? That was cruel, if she'd have been any stiffer she'd have snapped. No flow, no rhythm, the horror, the horror! I love and adore Bruno, he is my hero. Now kate's a Stepford wife, that's great!

Maybe if kate closed her mouth for five minutes she'd hear what Tony was saying to her. The nerve of her "a lot of people have quit on me in life" holy crap, she's the one that does the discarding. She doesn't talk in her sleep, she lies in it.

rural mom said...

Okay, that was the single most hilarious dance I have ever seen. Kate grimaced and groaned and hooved throughout and when Tony tried to pull her through his legs I nearly fell on the floor laughing. And that get up, oh my, made her look fat and dumpy. Terrible hair, terrible make up, I guess the producers really want to show the world who Kate Gosselin is. One hot mess

KartWasHorribleAgain said...

OMG- Kate was horrible again!!!

Just watched it on Youtube. MY EYES MY EYES!!!!!!! Amazingly, she is just as fake on the dance floor as she is in "real" life. When she did her kicks, it reminded me of Granny on The Beverly Hillbillies. If ABC gives her a free pass to stay on the show, then they will lose a lot of legitimacy with the public.

Elvira said...

Tom Bergeron is amazed at who is in the bottom two. Did the sheeple save Kate and the anti-sheeple saved Buzz? Oh goodness, could this be a lesson for a ABC?

capslock said...

VANESSA SAID: Oh, and can someone confirm what I think I heard her say to Brooke after the judging? "We had all of about 30 seconds of practice time?"

Yes, Brooke said, "You had a tough week out there, What Happened? Kate replied: "30 seconds of a great week of practice with a great teacher."

Meaning the routine lasted 30 seconds - but Kate has never been good at conveying her thoughts concisely. She never really answers any questions...

katehasnofriends said...

so far, buzz is safe & pamela is in the bottom 2

We did save Buzz said...

OMG! We saved Buzz, but Pamela is in the bottom two??? I didn't see that coming...I am sure Kate will be back at the expense of real talented entertainers.

thinkagain said...

Hmm said...
Surely DWTS and ABC rank integrity higher than their love for Katie Irene.

ABC? Ha! Think again:

Lisa said...

You have got to be kidding me???? Pam is in the bottom two?? Did you see Kate smirking? If she stays and Pam goes, that will be a travesty!!! She CANNOT dance a lick and it's not fair that she should stay in place of people who can. If she were ok or had potential, then I would not have such a big problem, but she sucks!!

cdnmom47 said...

With Kate being Kate, I can't imagine her putting in the hours required to get those dance steps right...she just doesn't have the work ethic, patience, nor does she have the ability to get along with others, which is going to make it impossible for her to have a working relationship with Tony.
Poor Tony......

I'm disappointed to see Pamela in the bottom two, but glad to see Buzz safe. I think for a man of his age, he's amazing! Plus it looks like he's having FUN! :)

Nothing would give me greater pleasure than to see Kate GO!! NOW!!!Wipe that smug ug look off her mug.

Nobody Likes a Narcissist said...

First Buzz was safe, and then Aiden! Ha, Kate is in trouble, just as I predicted!

I'm surprised they let us know that Aiden was safe so soon. I thought they'd at least try to keep the suspense up with Aiden and Kate both being in the bottom.

Bye bye, Kate! Go back to PA and try to be a mom for a change, You know, without a staff full of people taking care of the kids and the house. They're all in school now, I think you can freaking handle it by yourself by now.

MayDay said...

What was that hand action and face gesture Kate made when they were announcing who was safe and not safe?
She does not think before she makes an action and she forgets she is on TV. Very class-less.

Andie said...

It's obvious that until K8t gets voted off, the other more deserving celebrities will suffer. Why else would Pamela be on the bottom 2? All of us are too busy voting against you-know-who. Here's hoping that she's out soon so that I can finally begin to enjoy the season (I must admit, DWTS is one of my guilty pleasures, and Kate is RUINING it for me this year!!!!).

not surprised said...

i'm amazed that buzz is staying and pamela is going. i'm not surprised that kate's fate will be last...ratings ya know.

Calgary7 said...

Kate's back for week 3

Dana said...

Loong time reader, first time poster....


Just wanted to say, I totally TOTALLY just threw up in my mouth when Tom said that they were safe, just sayin.

Calgary7 said...

Shannon Doherty eliminated (her partner had MRI tore muscle off bone needs to rest it for 6 weeks)

Hippie Chick said...

FIXED!!!!!!!! I cannot believe it! Wow. She is a joke and a mockery. Unreal.

kate's an idiot said...

To answer the question Will Kate Ever Get It? The answer is no. She screeched into poor Tony's ear when she escaped getting voted off. She doesn't care how she stays on the show or how stupid she looks while on it or if she deserves to stay or not. Oh well, we get to see her make a fool of herself again

KHATE said...

I am literally sick at my stomach. POOR SHANNON. I guess people like me are to blame! Voting all for Buzz, may have screwed it up for Pam and Shannon. I can't believe we have to see that bitch again. PLEASE giver her another fast song!!!!!

Hippie Chick said...

Now Shannen can come out and say everything about Kate though!! I am so unbelievably shocked! Ugh!! kate was horrible! I hope Shannen starts spewing all the nasty things Kate did on the set! Ugh ugh ugh!!

maav_mom said...

Unbelievable! The ONLY time she smiled tonight was when she found out she was safe. She looked stiff, and a little bored as well. I wish she would have gone tonight.
I feel bad for Shannon, I think she would have done well. Pam being in the bottom two was a surprise also.

PJ's momma said...

This show is a sham. I had never watched it before, but after seeing that she was not booted (by the voters apparently), I have no doubt she is on there for ratings only and will continue to dance for weeks and weeks, despite her low judges' marks and the amount of votes she gets.

When they said, "Will the public let you face your fears next week?" and she gave that snotty, self-righteous 'whatev' look, I just wanted to slap her head right off her neck. My husband says it's all an act, even the J&K+8 stuff, but I don't buy it. Nobody acts that well all the time, on camera and off. She has got a mental deficiency or disorder. There is something WRONG with her. She stands there with fire shooting out of her eyeballs and then when it's announced she's staying, she screamed like she won Powerball and almost knocked Tony off his feet after blowing out his poor eardrum. Poor, poor Tony.

Katie711 said...

Is anyone really surprised that she actually MADE it? Goes to show that maybe things are not as they seem.

Lisa said...

What the fudge?? I can't believe Shannon and Mark went home over Kate! She did not even try to smile or look pleasant until she found out she was safe. Wow, Kate, must feel great to know that you are only there because of your rabid fans and people who want to see you make an ass of yourself, and not because you have any actual talent!! Did you see the smirk on her face when they put Pam in the bottom two?? She makes me sick to my stomach. Good dancers and potentially good dancers will go home over this piece of....work!! Grrrrr....I don't know if I have the stomach to watch this crap anymore. Maybe if people stop watching in protest of her sticking around ABC will get the hint that most of us are sick of her....yeah, I know, that'll never happen, but a girl can dream, can't she? Sigh....

Anonymous said...

Hopefully the Khart will get stuck next week and maybe one of her wheels will lock......long time voyeur of GWOP(Brummy rocks)......love you guys!

She's no prize said...

Her fans got her through....Well I guess hope, and crap, floats! Booo!

Dance witch! Dance! said...

She is a sore winner...her behavior was classless and callous. How rude to be screaming and jumping around with her elephant stumps pounding the stage! I'm surprised it didn't collapse and I am sure some sound guy had to cut her mike. So terribly rude to Shannon and Pam to act like that when she knows her place has been bought by TLC.

GoPoshGo said...

I don't watch DWTS, so I don't really understand how the voting works. That said, tonight's eliminaion results make it clear to me that this show is NOT a serious dance competition -- it's a popularity contest.

SHANNON voted off first??? PAM in the bottom two???? WTF???? As much as I found Buzz's performances to be heartfelt and charming, it's pretty clear that he can't keep up with the younger dancers.

And then there's Kate. The contestant who dances as gracefully as a spirited elephant. Whose performances can only be described as "Cringe-worthy."

Whether the show is "rigged" or not, who knows. But I can say with certainty tonight that DWTS is most certainly NOT a dance competition. They just eliminated a woman who showed evident improvement over her first performance, and one who danced with real skill and joy last night. I've never been a fan of Shannon's, but I was actually blown away by her dancing last night, and my thought-bubble was, "You GO, girl!" Granted, she tried to garner the sympathy vote via her dad's stroke, but she still DANCED HER ASS OFF -- Unlike some Gosselins we know who tried to milk the "mommy" persona, and who continues to lazily klod-hop her way around the dance floor.

I'll continue to watch just to witness Kate make an ass of herself. But I have to say that I'm disappointed that the results weren't more reflective of the reality of the situation. This will also be the first and only season I watch DWTS, as it apparently is just as unreal and manipulative as all the other reality shows.

My kingdom for the day "Reality TV" goes the way of "Boy Bands."

Ginger Rogers Rollin Over said...

This can only mean one thing: Next week we get to see Tony get her in a headlock and drop her to the practice floor.

I'm excited.

Hard to Keep Loving Jon said...

I'm shocked........Shannen truly improved and rocked her dance last night. She did NOT deserve to go home.
Something is very, very fishy at ABC. We know it's all about the ratings, but the audience also wanted to see Shannen. The fact that they kept Kart after TWO performances, her rehearsal video, and her interviews last night tells me that the show is rigged. Period. End period.

p.s. It was sure fun to see pix of Jon with kids.

Captain of the Titanic said...

Any talent competition that allows the public to vote is a "popularity" contest. Any that uses only the opinion of the judges, is a "talent" contest. What really screws things up royally are the special interest groups who want their favorite to win regardless of ability. Throw in the "Vote for the Worst" website whose primary purpose is to throw a monkey wrench into the voting integrity, and you have a recipe for some ridiculous results. Just ask Stacy Kiebler or Sabrina Bryant, two really good dancers who got voted off early despite everyone assuming they would win. Nicole is not safe. Evan is not safe. Or any of the others who deserve better.

Jean said...

I have watched DWTS since the very first show. My impression was that it was suppose to be about dancing pros paired with someone with no dancing experience and see if they can teach them to dance.

As time goes on the show is losing that. The one thing I didn't like was when they let people call in and count that towards the total score. Any time a show does that it becomes nothing but a popularity contest. If they insist on doing that perhaps it would be better to have those votes account for a smaller percentage of the score and the judges votes a higher percentage.

In the past I have seen hard working really good dancers eliminated just because they didn't have a big fan base. There were times you could tell by the judges comments that they too were disappointed by what was happening.

Tonight was the ultmate example of what is wrong with this show. Kate has fans but I do not believe with everything that is going on that she has that many. I believe TLC was behind this. With todays techonology you just know someone has come up with a way to jam the lines with votes.

Although there were others who weren't that good there is still no comparison to Kate. She was horrible and her attitude is disgusting. What a slap in the face to those who are working their butts off and really want to be there.

Shannon is classy said...

Shannon was quite classy in accepting her defeat ...knowing that DWTS is stacked by TLC . KHATE should have left.

Not a dance contest said...

Of course it isn't a true dance contest. It is a popularity one. Otherwise the contestants would be more equal in ability and, let's face it, Buzz would have been the first to go.

If you only look at dance moves, footwork, Kate was better than Buzz was. If it were a true dance contest things like age wouldn't be a factor...only ability.

Well, trying to look on the bright side of this Crash Kart disaster,
at least she will continue to show the world that this "Stepford wife cant step".

Great picture of Tony holding up the dead weight Kate. She looks like one of those peaceful protestors that go limp when they get arrested. Oh, and tony needs to wash his hands. Yuck.

Ohio Buckeye said...

This nails it for me.

It has obviously been decided to turn the narcissistic diva factor into a tool to hype up the drama and subsequent ratings & keep K8G in the spotlight WAY past her 15 minute allotment of fame time.

Everything attached to Kate Gosselin, including DWTS, is manufactured.

Apathy is now mine.

kart with a weave said...

While I am disappointed that Kart didn't get her comeuppance tonight, I'll wait until next week to declare the show fixed. The producers do have final say, and Mark's injury just might have changed their plans. I certainly hope so...I know controversy sells, but if they keep her around too long this little experiment is going to blow up in their faces.

Tami said...

You can blame (at least partially) the people who said they will vote for her just to watch her make a fool of herself or to have to work, etc. I think that's crap. I vote for the best dancers.

My 12 year old son's comment when I said I can't believe she didn't get kicked off, "The producers of TLC would probably sue them or something". Amazing what people can figure out when they don't even know anything about GWOP.

Jo said...

Why does Kate keep saying she picked "fun" over doing the dance perfectly (as if that was a possibility.) She said she had fun...really? That was fun? If that's Kate having fun, then it's no wonder she's such a mess. She wouldn't know joy and fun if it kicked her in the butt.

momoftwins2 said...

It is official, the show is 100% rigged. Kate didn't know a step, couldn't remember her dance...sucked.
Shannen, who seems to have no controversy surrounding her is goes?

Yup - those who create drama is all this is about. NOT DANCING.

WTF

I just learned something that explains ALOT: Babymama posts as someone else on her OWN BLOG. "To stir things up and fan the flames, so they come back for more".

JMM said...

Oh how I would have liked to see Kate get booted and Tony given to Shannon because her partner got hurt.I bet they would have finished in the top 2...

Mom of 2 boys said...

Thanks East Coasters... no reason to watch tonight!

Gimme Gimme said...

I think it would be a travesty for Pamela to get voted off and KG stay on. Pamela has worked hard and has been entertaining, and lazy-butt is just schlopping her way through. They must all surely hate her. She stands out like a sore thumb. She wasn't let anywhere near Shannon.

The judges should wake up now and stop padding Kate's scores. There are enough people out there that would vote for her if she puddled up the dance floor and flopped around in it like a carcass. She doesn't need any help. She doesn't care if she can dance or not and people are just reinforcing that in her.

Just when I think I can't dislike her more she reaches a whole new level. I never thought she would go on there and make a fool of herself like she has...what happened to Can Do Kate...more like Don't Have To Kate.

Tony looked great. He is a great dancer. I am glad he got to showcase his skills. What a dumb beeitch to miss out on a great opportunity to learn from a pro like that just because she is so frickin lazy.

I wonder what she will dance to next week. Hope it is doblo cabasa or whatever the heck that is.

Tami said...

Buckeye:
That one line in her statement that said she knew the producers were going to let her go later, only confirms it is a set up.

and

“We were cheering them all on. I’m going to be sad when people go. I loved seeing everybody dance. It was wonderful,” Gosselin says
***********
As far as the first line, don't you realize she meant dancing order, as in she was going later in the show. Just like last night where she went last..for ratings and all..

And the second quote is just her over-confident fantasy life showing through.
Narcissism, ya know..

amanda said...

I'm disappointed Kate didn't get voted off because she probably feels it validates her in some way. BUT at the same time, it's just so incredibly hilarious to watch her make a fool for herself on DWTS! I feel like we were in a win-win situation tonight: win if she goes, win if she stays.

Jane from PA said...

Lovin' the GWOP, you guys are hilarious! I sit here reading and at times almost pee myself laughing so hard! It's amazing how over here, everyone is articulate, and can spell, unlike over at ROL!If you disagree with them you are a fat twinkie eater and "jellus".
This weeks dancing, and I use that term loosely, gave new meaning to the term "hoofin' it". Khate looked like a horse counting out 2+2 with her hoof! Ewww, the hair, the makeup, the outfit, the legs...need I go on?

shoshana said...

"Love how someone from the background yelled out to be sure to give Ted the hairdresser a plug."

I think they meant a hair plug!

Bleeting Sheeple said...

I have to say I DO NOT think it was rigged. The sheeple vocalized they would be out in force.
For this I say THANK YOU.

Kart has been pushed onto America via the publicity machine and until now without the fact of Live Enterainment. Now the world is seeing Kart for what she is.

Lemme tell you folks, THE best thing that ever happened was Jon's gag order. She is revealing herelf for who she really is.

Truthfully I want to see that disaster for another week or two.

If you want to sell your soul and humiliaate yourelf for the sake of the almighty buck, go right ahead. The GOOD AMERICANS see you for what you are and are laughing... even if it is to you all the way to the bank. Go right ahead....it all comes out in the wash.... don't you dare think otherwise my dear

PJ's momma said...

So, I already said tonight that I am not a fan of the show. I have caught Kart's 'performances' both times because they stick her at the end when I'm getting home. Tonight I watched youtube and Shannon's performance. That girl danced her little butt off, and she eagerly and happily accepted the very small criticisms given by the judges. Overall, they were very positive, and she had a total of 38 of 60 points. She was fun to watch. She gave her partner so much credit and many props too. She was smiling her adorable little face off and enjoying every minute of the experience.
Kart lumbered around like a dinosaur on Xanax for the same dance, managed to rack up 30 (or 31) of 60, and all she takes about is herself (I am not a dancer, I am a mom, the fans at home are all that count, blah blah blah.) She gives Tony credit for nothing. The judges were all extremely harsh, had nothing good to say to her at all, and she did NOT receive the criticism with any openness at all (as an opportunity to learn to improve).
And yet there she sits, weighted down by a million sequins and a ton of makeup, plastic and hairspray, while Shannon is gone. It's a sham. I am disgusted.

bb said...

Ok it took me a few day, but it finally hit me.

kate in the pink dress with the pink wings lifting her foot in the air reminds me of how Big Bird roller skates!

little said...

Did anyone catch her rolling her eyes again. Jeez, its just rude...
And that scream and then the bending over when she was safe. What a bad winner.

I though Shannon would be the darling of the show.

Kate almost didnt make it through her dance this week, who know what next week will bring.

I predict she will be on for at least 2 more week- just in time for her book to come out.

Elvira said...

I don't see Kate doing at all well in Irish step dancing either. The only potential quality she has is a straight upper body and even there she is stiff where they are motionless. She has no coordination or musicality much less work effort.

Button Button said...

I do feel sorry for Tony. The poor guy was probably praying they would be eliminated.

Kate probably would just as soon be eliminated to, I'm thinking.

Their little dance classes can't have been fun for either of them.

Well, so, what's next? Another week of total frustration for Tony.

Reality Star Thinks She's Loved said...

Each time I come into GWoP and see the header of Tony pushing Kate in the cart, I have to laugh; it's the best Bruno line yet.

Well, Kate said somewhere that she thought her first dance was okay, just like I'm sure she thinks not getting voted off this first round means she's a really, real dancer in the making.

Poor Tony, he must feel so trapped. I'm sure after this season, he'll have to sit the next one out just to recover.

Jane in CA said...

So Kate made it through the first eliminations. I enjoyed the fact that she had to sweat it out til the end to know if she was safe. Oh, the ugly look on her face as she was made to wait, and wait, and wait!!!

I'm sorry to see Shannen go, but given the fact that Mark has an injury that would have sidelined him anyway, maybe that's for the best. She made her dad happy and I think she also redeemed her "problem child" image in the public eye somewhat. I wish her nothing but all the best!

Poor Tony will be bald by the time the week is over. Kate will do no better this next time, because she's physically and mentally unable to take direction, put in hard work, and walk and chew cud at the same time. Further humiliation awaits her - bwhaaahhaaahaaa!

Hard to Keep Loving Jon said...

I'm sorry, still in shock that the no talent tart has people who rigged a repeat, ridiculous performance for ratings and recompense.
(and I meant the alleration)
bet Kart doesn't even know that word!
add rude

Eye Not Love Kate said...

Although I hoped the diva would get her ego crashed this week, I realized it wouldn't happen. My mom and I voted for Buzz because we loved Ashly when she was on the show before. I figured Shannen would go, which is a shame because she obviously wanted to be there. It's annoying that Kate fully admits she doesn't care how she does or if she does a good job, just as long as she finishes the routine. I feel so sorry for Tony having to deal with her. Poor guy.....if he can manage another season, they need to put him with the woman they think will actually win.

The ONLY positive in Kate sticking around is that she cannot control her emotions. Notice tonight that she was making faces and generally looked bored and miserable for the whole show. Only time there was any emotion was when she acted like a goon hugging Tony when she heard she was going to last another week. Kate is not an actress. She couldn't act that scared if she knew she was lasting another week. It's only week two and she hasn't been able to play nice. I don't know how long she'll last, but if she's this bad now, her true personality will be absolutely horrible as the dances get worse. Before long, the entire viewing audience will be about to see her true colors. Why TLC allowed her to ruin her image is beyond me, but I think now that she acted this bad and didn't get voted off, she has probably kissed being a "star" goodbye. Hollywood may hire her for ratings, but once people get so fed up they stop watching just for her, there will be no reason to keep hiring her. I keep trying to remind myself that in the end, it's all good.

Just one thing....for those of you voting for Kate to make her look bad, please consider that poor, poor man who threatened to quit the show. She already abused Jon. Should another man be forced to endure that? Everything in Tony's voice and body language screams "vote me off". We couldn't help Jon, but I'll be doing what I can to help Tony out.

**********************************
okay you GWoP posters! Your comments are cracking me up at a very late hour and I just woke up my husband (who thinks I lost my mind earlier tonight when I was shouting into the TV while watching DWTS).

With today's technology, I think I always realized that votes can be skewed in these talent competitions but tonight's results really take the cake because Kate was miles behind the other dancers on Monday night...just glaringly-awful and unprepared, with an all-around bad attitude, framed by a lot of unflattering and inappropriate facial expressions accentuated by an overly-made up mouth of fake white teeth rimmed in harsh red lipstick which took up the bottom half of her mug like a painted clown.

With no offense to the hardworking amateurs (Kate not included), experienced judges and true professional partners, DWTS can't be viewed as a serious competition, not in my book anyway, at least from now on. Enjoy it for everybody other than Kate...and for the variety of dances, nice music and fancy costumes. Also get a little satisfaction over Kate having to take orders and do something she really sucks at, maybe even week after week, showing her true colors and hopefully losing newer fans who begin to see through her charades.

Again, in the meantime, thanks to GWoP folks above for gifting me with some stress relief here at day's end! Gosh, you should write for comedy shows with this kind of wit. I'm seriously serious!

poor Tony said...

Did you see Tony's face when he heard they were going to stay? He looked disappointed. Kate's staying means Tony is going to get more abuse from him. Poor Tony. I bet Tony wants to be eliminated. He will still get paid for group dances and so on with or without Kate's staying.

Kartzilla Tonya Harding wannabe said...

Hopefullay America got to really see Katezilla show her rude and snobby personality this week. They caught a portion of her disgusted look and arms in the air after Tony attempted to put his arms arounds her during the elimination. He was trying to be reassuring and she was thinking - "Ick, get your sweaty hads off of me."

And during yesterday's show, she rolled her eyes THREE times.

1st - when Bruno spoke

2nd - as she was entering the celebuquarium

3rd - when speaking to Brooke.

She is vile vile vile.

And since when is the Tonya Harding look ever in??!

Kate is a hillbilly said...

I am not sorry about Kate is staying. The longer she stays the more people can see she is a horrible person and fraud. She has no talent. Period.

ABC can only do so much. They can edit the practice session to make her look good. They can't edit out her sucky attitude and annoying facial expression during the competition. She just can't fake being friendly because she is a really mean-spirited person who can't be a good actress. Her classless upbringing shows through out the show. It's like watching a hillbilly.

This will be the beginning and the end of putting Kate on major network. Being on DWTS won't make her more popular. I think it actually hurts her and makes her less popular because people can see who she really is, not the TLC heavily edited version. Forget about giving her a talk show on major network, do you see the audience will tune in everyday to watch a grumpy hillbilly?

PasoDoble said...

Well, if this report is true, next week's dance is going to be a "dramatic" reenactment of Jon and Kate's life in the last two years. Yeah, you read that right. Once again, Jon is helpless fodder for Kate's ambitions.

If this is what they actually do, and Tony choreographs Jon as some kind of abuser or pantywaist, then I truly hope Kate is voted off next week. Up until now, I felt fine with her continued presence on DWTS -- she's been making a royal fool of herself and showing her true personality to millions of people.

But this? Making a laughingstock of your ex on national tv, knowing your children are watching you perform? Those children LOVE their dad; Kate is envious and resentful of that love, IMO, and now she'll do what she can to poison the kids' attitude toward their father. Kate's narcissism is being fed on this show, and it's truly growing out of control.

Here's an excerpt, then the link:

"While Jon himself is not actually going to grace the DWTS stage, we will be getting the next best (or worst?) thing: a Jon and Kate-themed dance for week three! Tony will be channeling Jon G (lucky Jon!) as Kate portrays herself (who else?) in next week's storytelling assignment.

"Let that sink in for a moment: Kate will be transforming her recent tabloid troubles into a high-stepping dance routine.

"'It's my story over the past two years,' Kate tells us of the dance. 'We're very, very excited.'"

grannyoftwo said...

If all that I am reading on here is really happening(cause I refuse to watch) then I would have to say that this whole fiasco is turning out badly for TLC and the Kate Gosselin Brand...It could be the biggest mistake they have made. This is national televisiona and people are really getting to know the "real" Kate for who she is and it "aint" a pretty sight. So go ahead sheeple keep her on as long as you like because the longer you keep her in the spotlight the more she will reveal of her ugly self to the whole wolrd out there. She just cannot help herself. That is why she has a bodyguard in real life to help her not make these mistakes, but she cannot have him on stage in front of the cameras during the show. That is where the faces, the attitude, the smirks, the eye rolling, the real Kate is coming through for all of America to see. Thank you TLC, for getting our point across better than wwe ever could. The only job I think she will be able to get after this gig is in a remake of the "Wizard of Oz" as you guessed it either the Wicked Witch or one of the farm animals, probably the hind end of one...

Andrea said...

Kate's reaction to her being safe from elimination was 100% pure white trash. Shrieking & jumping up and down was ridiculously rude. I don't remember seeing any other star reacting like that.

In a way, it reminded me of their trip to Hawaii - at the luao (sp?) when the Gosselins were all hollering & waving at Mady on stage. No courtesy for others around them. I can't stand people that do that at any kind of show.

I do love how there has been so much NEGATIVE press about Khate lately. Even though she's getting more exposure, at least people are finally realizing what an a$$-clown she really is!

Can't See Sheep said...

Whoops, sorry put this one on the wrong thread, it belongs here.

Shannen was eliminated. WTF??? That makes no sense. I really think that the judges scores need to count for a lot more so that this is not a popularity contest, it should be one of talent. Shannen had improved & it you could see that she improved. It really is too bad that Pam & Shannen found themselves at the bottom of the viewer voting poles. I mean it's a hoot watching kate screw up, but I don't think better dancers should be going home before she does. kate was certainly not better than Shannen & Pam should not be in the bottom two, I don't like what all this has most likely put in kate's head. kate really is dense enough to think this means she's done better than these two & better than she actually has. kate forgot half of her dance, Buzz who is an 80yr old man did not.

Joanne said...

DWTS is officially a farce now. I think the judges should have the final vote, not the lame brane viewers who insist on keeping this no talent on.
I havent watched the show but heard that shannon was the first to go, and she is the one I wanted to watch.
Its so not fair to every person on the show because everyone wants to watch kate humiliate herself.
Kate has no business even being on the show, let alone getting through the first elimination. Such a joke!
The real celebs should be PISSED!!

shilohpeace said...

How can someone who was a cheerleader in high school be so uncoordinated and flat as a pancake. The woman is lifeless. Dancing shows the inner joy a person contains and Kate has none. I have never once seen Tony be anything but kind to his dance partners. he is a valued integral part of the show and everyone loves him and he cannot stand kate, it is obvious and he is trying everything he has to be polite and respectful to her. One of the reasons I think he walked away from the interview is that Kate never stopped talking. She would never let him get in a word edgewise (just like with Jon) if you go to youtube, you will see a couple of interviews where Kate goes on so much, that the person taking the film edits out her comments.. it is blah blah blah.I think Kate is still on the show not because her fans are voting her on but because tlc has organized a massive voting arrangement with its staffers... and because haters are voting to keep her on so they can see what a fool she makes out of herself and watch her in total misery. I think it is funny to watch her. She has a partner who hates her, she dances like a sack of potatoes, she doesn't look beautiful, her smile is fake, she does look panicked.. she cannot be having any fun.. she is making money but who cares about that? At what cost? She is so fake so I love having her on the show. I admit I am fascinated with watching her but it makes me sad that humans like her exist, where she is so clueless. She has no friends.. no real friends. Most of the people in America never saw what a bitch she was on J&K plus 8 because they had 4 million viewers tops out of 300 million Americans.. so most Americans just think she is a trooper for having 8 kids who is continuing on with her life, apparently working hard to support them, while her ex is a total douchebag and they feel sorry for her nd respect her at the same time. most americans don't know what a bitch she is.. but I hope that DWTS will show more- love how Tony just won't take her bullcrap...all day of her yapping in his head, blaming him for her own lack of any kind of talent whatsoever. Kate is wealthy, Kate will become wealthy, but in money only. Kate is so dirt poor in humanity and spirit. What a strange person she is?

How can she possibly think that anyone thinks her smile is even remotely real. Her genuine face is one of misery.

pinkdiamond611 said...

How can anyone be surprised Khate Kart was not eliminated? There were many Gwop'rs posting that they voted for her to make her suffer. Add that to the sheeple. On top of that, DWTS is neck to neck with AI in the ratings!So we know that the judges will continue to pad her scores. She is a laughing stock and they are using her but it is working. I can't imagine her or TLC finding any new fans after this debacle, and wouldn't that be grand.

Scruffy's Mom said...

So, she says she's going to make fun of Jon in next week's dance. nice. I'm sure your kids will find it funny, too. What a pig.

winsomeone said...

I now see why Tony was paired with Kate..he seems to be the tallest of the male professionals. If she were with any of the others, she would be a good head taller than them.

When she said she missed a few of the steps because she was having so much fun, and that it didn't bother her a bit, I thought then that it was fixed. She seemed to know it didn't matter how badly she did?

Duckman said...

Maybe it's time for DWTS to implement some form of American Idol's save-rule.

On American Idol, the host and the judges can each save a contestant from going home before the contestant pool is down to the final five. The judges decide as a unit, and the vote has to be unanimous to save the contestant from an early trip home. The host and judges are each allowed to invoke the save-rule only once during the season.

I don't know how long the save-rule's been around, but I'm guessing Sanjaya Malakhar had something to do with it. Courtesy of sites like votefortheworst.com, Sanjaya stuck around long past his expiration date.

Mary Beth said...

This is the first time I've watched....
and the last....

Kate deserved to go home...Shannon did not...

I don't believe the viewers votes count..

I'm ashamed to admit I watched ABC's "scam" of a show !

KHATE said...

I went on the the DWTS message board, and there's only one or two Kate supporters. ALSO, The strs are tweeting - but Kate is not.

Lisa said...

Ok, so maybe I'm over-thinking this mess of a show, but after Len said that next week, he wants to see a "story", I thought "Well, here goes Kate's chance to use the kiddos".... I also read somewhere that she will be using her split in her routine. Please tell me that Tony will not be "Jon"!! I was a little surprised that Adam Corolla let Kate get a free pass last night when he was poking fun at the contestants. Well, I guess I shouldn't be since ABC seems to kiss her ratings-grabbing butt!!! George Lopez has gained my viewership lately because he holds nothing back on his show about her. Last night he showed her treatment of Tony in practice and proceeded to tear her apart. Wow! Someone actually has the balls (sorry for the language) to say what everyone thinks about Kate! You go, George!!

Bleeting Sheeple said...

It's pretty obvious by watching Kart, Shannon and Pam last night that there is/was a rivalry going on there. (Please spill some beans Shannon, please please!!!)

1st, did anyone else notice everyones genuine shock when it was announced that Pam was in the bottom 2? Except that is for Karts Devil glare at her?

2nd did anyone notice that when all the contestants came down to hug on Shannon and Mark, that Shannon physically turned her whole body away from the approaching Kart Kalamity?

ABC knew that by getting rid of Pam or Kart that ratings would drop. Mark suffering an injury was the perfect scapegoat for elimination and to keep everyone tuned in.

And boy, was I ever cringing when they announced Kart safe. Not because she was staying (I knew the sheeple votes were there), but in the way she acted- screeching and jumping around like a 10 year old, showing no grace, tact or consideration to the contestant who had been voted off. Tacky Tacky Tacky!

Lemme throw this out there.... instead of spreading all our votes out, perhaps we should all consolidate and back Pam full force since I can definitely see that Kart does NOT like Pam.

What does everyone think????

Bonnie said...

OK this might be my naivety speaking but I think the only reason Khate is still on is the unfortunate injury to Shannon's partner. They had to eliminate one couple and the injury forced their hand.

Now if she isn't eliminated next week it will awful.

IDModo said...

On Access Hollywood Kate gives a hint about next week's music- she says it's something that happens in everyday life. I can think of some Rolling Stones songs it might be: "Mother's Little Helper", "Hey You, Get off of My Cloud","Nineteenth Nervous Breakdown", and for Tony, "Under My Thumb".
As for Kate's future on DWTS: "Paint it Black".

Dor said...

I have been reading all the posts and need to put in my 2 cents....I am upset that Shannen got voted off because Kate should have been the one to go and we all know that, however I am finding some pleasure in watching this woman unravel on live t.v. She has no control over her emotions whatsoever and with the rolling of eyes, hemming and haw'ing and overall displays of bitchiness, I hope that people will see through her charade once and for all. Has anyone noticed how she eyes Nicole up and down. She turns into the ugly green monster with jealousy. She wants to be Nicole. She wants the sex appeal and the body of Nicole. Just keep your eyes on her after everyone dances. There is no genuine sincerity from her towards the other dancers. She wants to be #1 and in her sick little mind, she thinks she is and how dare anyone try and take that from her. Remember, she said she would nail it the other night....yeah, she nailed it alright, LOL. When her and Tony had their spat the other night and she cried and was saying "I don't get it", she kept looking in the mirror at herself to be sure she had the act down pat with the crying. I hope she continues to be her true self, because like everything else, her Karma is on it's way. I am NOT a fan of what Jon did, however I hope he sits home with a big bowl of popcorn and watches the trainwreck with a smile on his face. Kate looked like the biggest dumbass the other night. Clearly not knowing what she was doing and that in itself is justice for me. She is such an incredible ass and she doesn't even know it. I got a huge laugh on her account the other night. Tony is obviously on to her and there is more drama in the making there....

Katie711 said...

What kind of lesson was Shopping Kart trying to teach her kids as she was jumping up and down and screaming YES YES as Shannen was eliminated? Notice how everyone else was stone cold quite? NOT ZILLA she didnt care so long as SHE stayed on the show. And now reports are coming out that she tried to have Tony fired? WHAT REALLY!!?? She really is something isnt she? I feel so bad for those kids.

SkippyMom said...

Shannon was completely and utterly robbed - I know her partner hurt himself, but they would've had a replacement for her to dance with [In fact her partner said he was going to ask his Dad who has been on DWTS before]

And Pam in the bottom two? Who is ABC trying to kid?

Out of all the dancers - Buzz included, bless his heart - Kate was the ONLY one who:

1. Didn't know the steps
2. Sang and talked through the entire dance
3. Argued with her partner to the point he quit [first time I have ever seen that on DWTS]
4. Didn't listen, nor work towards learning the dance.
5. Doesn't even try - "So I forgot the steps" - her whole attitude is "So what". She absolutely knows how long she is going to be there.

Would someone with a DVR please, please, please print the disclaimer at the end that states that final decisions are at the discretion of the producers, please?

It isn't just votes and scores - this is rigged.

I so used to enjoy this show - but she is ruining the experience for me. I stopped watching J&K8 seasons ago because she makes me ill - but it seems I cannot get away from her.

The more this farce continues the sorrier ABC is going to be.

Tgil said...

This is my first time actually watching DWTS, mainly because I wanted to see infamous Kate dance. I am 100% disgusted.

I was a professional dancer for 17 years (ballet, tap, jazz, modern) and let me tell you the main key to be a beautiful dancer is not technique or doing every step perfectly, it is spirit and telling a story through one's movement. I've seen girls with physical and mental disabilities display beautiful dancing skills. I've also seen people like Kate who never danced a day in their live and show more improvement then she did and trust me these people weren't practicing 6-7 hrs a day one on one time with a professional.

She can only hide behind her nerves for so long, but its obvious to me that she shows NO passion towards the dance, she has NO respect for it. She assumed that she would go out there and charm everyone with giving the bare minimum in practice and she was DEAD wrong.

A true dancer allows the music to flow through them, their movements weave a silent story. I am happy that at least the judges are trying to tell the contestants this and for the most part all except Kate are attempting this. Even Buzz whose steps are not perfect was glowing with excitement and passion. Kate was 100% fake, even her bad attempts at smiling. For goodness sakes, she was even faking it while sitting around for her turn.

She displays no respect for her teacher nor the judges. She also has no team spirit for the others. Constant eyeing up her so-called competition and barely clapping or showing a kind emotions towards them after their performance. Just look at her smug face when Shannon got eliminated.

We all know she is in this competition for one reason only $$$$$, I just hope people really see the type of person she is; and I pray she does not stay on for much longer. She is a major stain upon all dancers, again I am disgusted.

She's no prize said...

Another GREAT Access Hollywood Interview:

Sorry ppl from Pennsylvania, Kate cannot identify with you as she is the only one from the state on TV--- (Her words, not mine) Watch for yourself. Pretty boring interview until the end when she spews out that little morsel! Sorry Taylor Swift, I guess you don't count!

Amylouwhoo said...

It much harder to get rid of a contestant when you can only vote to "save" someone. So, if you really want Kate to get the boot, you probably need to vote for someone with little fan base already. That's why Shannon didn't make the cut this week. No one really cares about her and I doubt there are lots of people out there organizing people to vote for her. KWIM? I have a feeling it's going to be really hard to get rid of Kate when there are so many people around to split the vote with.

Jen K said...

Her melodramatic "win" was really bad form. Someone is getting voted OFF honey, you should be a gracious winner, not a total classless moron.

What rock did Jon find her under anyway?

Anonymous said...

No matter what you think of her, this is a dance competition. She is one of the worst dancers and needs to go based on that alone. Shannen gave far more effort and was much more graceful about accepting the judges comments.

SwingsandRoundabouts said...

Now I'm torn again...between Khart showing her true colours to millions of viewers and staying to "dance" again or seeing more deserving dancers robbed of their chance to shine.

I was surprised and outraged at the results and at the same time not at all surprised because the controversy that constantly follows her is pure ratings gold.

OT On another blog someone called her "the human Pez dispenser" so I thought I'd share the laugh.

Laurie said...

Did anyone catch her rolling her eyes again. Jeez, its just rude...
And that scream and then the bending over when she was safe. What a bad winner.

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

I have to agree with you - what a bad winner! Did you notice that (after the initial hug from Kate which he couldn't avoid because she threw herself on him) Tony left her and went down to console Shannen and her partner? I also noticed that while the others standing down there had some sort of bodily contact to show support for each other - Tony didn't have any with Kate at all. He'll put on his happy face because ABC pays him but I'm guessing that he's had it with her.

Midwest Teacher said...

Just disgusting that a woman like her stays after her horrible performance and how ill-prepared she was. Shannen really wanted to be there and tried and improved. This is just disgusting!

PLEASE, PLEASE, STOP VOTING FOR HER! I know it was funny to see her dance and get critqued, but not at the price of people that really wanted to be there, learn and do their best.

That's right. Even TONY was surprised they got 5's. He had his eyes covered and when they said 5, he registered surprise. She did not deserve 5's!

JSL said...

ABC didn't have to put footage on about her and Tony fighting, they chose to because it is all about the ratings. Kate is being used and she doesn't realize it, it is incredibly cruel - I didn't like her behavior toward Jon and her relatives as it was unfair. I don't think the Tony conflict was staged at all because we saw this side of her for years.

However, my opinion has changed -- the AHA moment was when she said people have left her all her life -- I think she really believes that --it may be all in her head but I think she really believes it and you know who also said things to that effect -- the Octomom. Is there a link between this and having multiples?

The networks and people are using her quest for fame and making a national fool out of her so they can make money. What do they have to lose - it is not their life - they won't have to live with it when it is all over. They won't have to pick up the pieces.

With regard to the Baby Mama - she is easy to actually identify on facebook and see her motives.

If you believe she is evil then it is easy to trash her but if you may think she is ill, then it is more than just sad, it's pathetic.

Twice as Nice said...

Whether you are a Kate fan or not we all know why she wasn't voted off. It's for the entertainment. I think there are some that don't care for Kate but voted for her because they love watching her make a fool of herself. It's Sanjaya~William Hung all over again. Of course she thinks she was saved because she is so loved. I'm sure the same could be said of Sanjaya and William Hung. Some are the last to realize that they are the butt of a joke especially when they are self absorbed.

The other reason she could still be on is because everyone was quick to vote for the ones at the bottom so she would get the boot never thinking anyone with any talent would be voted off. Come on, the only person with a lower score than Kate was an eighty year old man. Can she actually feel good about Shannon being so much better than her yet she gets to stay? Oh, I forgot we're talking about Kate here.

OMG was that interview not the most nauseating thing you've ever seen in your life? And next week's song? Totally is so gonna be GaGa's "Paparazzi".

She.Is.So.Predictable.

"Oh next week's song is so totally my everyday life...it's what I live everyday".

She sure thinks she is something else. Makes me sick. The arrogance is so think you can slice it with a knife.

Next week's song for sure...."Paparazzi".

SAHM said...

While I am not surprised that Kate did not go home and survived another week.... I am surprised that it was Shannon that went home. Something doesn't sound right or feel right about this voting and I wonder if the voting is fixed, not that there is a way to tell or that we will ever find out, but I find it odd that Shannon had higher scores than Buzz and Kate and went home. I am sure that ABC is keeping her on for ratings but we will see as the weeks go, just how well she improves.

I agree w/ a couple of the comments about Kate's reaction to the results for her and Tony staying. I think it was very rude of her to react that way. No one else jumped up and down when they found out which only goes to show her classlessness that she has. She is out of her league out there and I can't believe that she would even compare herself to the other celebrities and consider herself to be one of them.

Dancing with the Kart said...

Bias at Access Hollywood?!!

Did anyone see Access Hollywood last night (Tuesday)? First Shaun badgered Tony about how he "treated" Nancy O'Dell. Tony actually walked off.

THEN - Maria Menounos went on to say that Tony's MEAN & Tough.

What the??

Why are they so far up Kate's reconditioned Kart?!!

SKB516 said...

I'm totally disgusted. I had a feeling she wouldn't be eliminated, but I assumed one of the other lowest scorers would be. My jaw hit the floor when Buzz was immediately announced as safe and Pam in the bottom 2. As the show went on, I had a feeling that it was going to be between K8 and Chad joining Pam, with Chad having to take 1 for the team to keep her sorry butt on (by the way, I wonder if she admires him for the "Ocho" in his name- being a mom of EIGHT and all. This may give her an idea for her new post-Jon last name: Ocho-Kiddos! hehe).

It's oh so obvious that they are using her for ratings (she always dances near the end, they focus the camera on her somber look, they waited til the very end to say she was safe, etc), and I can't decide whether to high-5 or scream at ABC for it. On one hand, it's kinda amusing that she's merely a pawn in their little ratings game and is apparently as oblivious as ever that people are laughing AT her, not with her. But then the very fact that she does lack any self-awareness means she thinks she's hot stuff because so much attention is being paid to her.

I also have a somewhat disturbing theory that I hope isn't true. But... I wonder if they are purposefully having her perform so poorly at first and then a couple weeks down the road, she'll end up being decent. You know, to further promote the idea that she's Can-Do Kate and she's not a quitter gosh darnit! Not that I think she's really a stellar dancer in disguise, but I didn't expect her to be as awful as she is. Of course I don't like my own theory because it's much more fun if she really is as awful as she's shown herself to be the past 2 weeks. But given what we've seen thus far, I wouldn't put anything past them in the name of ratings.

Slow-motioned much of last night's show in my sleepless hours.

Since mods expertly post still pics of Kate's moments, PLEASE can someone post the still of Kate STICKING OUT HER TONGUE three inches toward Tony and wringing her hands sloppily, elbows in the air. So disgusting. He knew the camera was on them, and was looking straight into it to send the message to Kate that she was on camera. When she got the message, the plastic smile appeared.

Everyone needs to see that moment.

BJCMOM said...

My prediction? Kate gets injured and has to leave the competition about 2 weeks from now. That way she'll never have to say she was voted off. It'll be another round of "Poor Kate". But she'll have lasted long enough to pay her debt.

Ali B said...

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/36106762/

According to this ET interview with Kate she spent her B-day with the kids. They made her breakfast in bed and then they later had brownies and ice cream. Are they in LA???

Watch the video as it is pretty funny. Her partner sounds just as arrogant as she is. He abruptly walks out of the interview leaving Kate hanging when the interviewer questions him for being a tough teacher.

KatesDancingFlintstoneFeet said...

Ohhh, she's already squealing with glee about next weeks song. Let's take bets that it's Lady Gaga's "Paparazzi"

THIS is how much the show is fixed: remember back when she was on Leno, and mentioned she wanted to be on DWTS & actually SANG a verse from the song..remember? "Im your biggest fan I'll follow you until you love me, Papa-paparazzi.."

Sorry, DWTS is fixed...they planned her 1st, 2nd, AND 3rd dance LONG AGO! She's staying folks!

One More Thing . . . said...

JMO, I think the judges came up with the challenge to "tell a story" in the dance next week in order to narrow the field and let the public identify the better dancers.

The judges know who will look good and who will look ridiculous.

Nanny Deb said...

First, cudos to Shannen and her partner for their dignified response to being voted off. I do think his injury had something to do with the outcome, since the producers want viewers to either see steady improvment (or B!+<# drama), and switching partners might derail improvement.

Second, Kate's trashy true self showed all her bits with that nasty display of gloating and screeching last night. The woman wouldn't know gracious if it came up and bit her on one of her surgically enhanced body parts.

Third, as a non-voter, may I suggest that people give their votes to Pam or Buzz only, unless they choose to vote for Kate so she keeps showing her true self? I would love to see a pam vs. Kate elimination moment that ends with Kate having to leave the show.

DB said...

So next week is 'everyday life' according to Kate.

Lemme guess the song....Psycho Killer by the Talking Heads....just watch.

I did see that video. Actually, Tony walks out when Kate says she can't learn just from being told, step,step, ball change, step (or whatever particular words she used). Tony gives her a look of "oh no you didn't" and then he backs away and walks off.

The final straw was Kate once again insinuating that it's Tony's teaching style that's the problem, not Kate.

I don't see Tony as arrogant, certainly not more so than any other professional dancer. This is his career, and he is a Pro. He's also one of the nicer male pro dancers on this show, and usually coddles his stars.

Jacsamic said:
Are there plenty of people looking out for the children??

* * *
If you've got some concrete ideas on what I or anyone else can do to help the children, I would like to hear them. I have been very vocal on this blog and elsewhere that I do not believe children should EVER be on a reality tv show. I also believe that Federal laws should be put in place to protect them, similar to child actors.

I've even written to my two congress people (Boxer and Feinstein) to ask them to consider drafting such legislation. I only got canned responses from them.

That's about all I can think to do as an individual.

For now, the children are off the air. I hope it might stay that way, or if filming resumes, there simply isn't the same level of viewership and the show fades away in time. Sadly, the damage to the Gosselin children has already been done. Millions know them, know where they live, where they go to school, etc. I pray for their safety and their well being. Their mother is a piece of work and they will probably all need serious therapy when they grow up, especially those poor boys.

But the Courts won't step in and protect them, so what exactly can I (or any individual) do?

I'm left with hoping for the best for the children, and mocking Kate mercilessly.

rap541 said...

I'm shocked........Shannen truly improved and rocked her dance last night. She did NOT deserve to go home.
Something is very, very fishy at ABC. We know it's all about the ratings, but the audience also wanted to see Shannen. The fact that they kept Kart after TWO performances, her rehearsal video, and her interviews last night tells me that the show is rigged. Period. End period.


You want to keep in mind that Shannon Doherty has a rep as a not so pleasant person herself, complete with fangroups called "IHateBrenda" and is mostly known for being a diva bitch. I also think, before we decide the contest is fixed, have to acknowledge that every year poor dancers make it farther than they should. Quite frankly if this was about talent, Buzz should have been gone before Kate.

Personally I hope that Kate stays on for a few eliminations. Look at all the bad press she's getting - on MSNBC, the Scoop is saying Pam Anderson thinks she's a bitch, and these interviews and scenes where she's being a bitch to Tony....

I don't think Kate realized that ABC is not TLC and does not have a vested interest in making Kate look good. They want ratings and Kate being a bitch is ratings. Kate's fans voting for her to keep her on the show, clutzing around? Ratings again. I think immortalizing her divorce in Irish tap dance won't win her any points, but if she wants to be a vindictive bitch on national tv... ABC is gonna eat that up.

SafetyTrain said...

What a first class witch this woman is. Her reaction when she found out she was safe just shows that she possesses not an ounce of style and grace, and is thoroughly ugly both inside and out. Shannen was there to dance for her dad and make him happy - that was no publicity stunt - that was genuine. For Kate to shriek and carry on that long in front of both of them was beyond rude and horrible. She really doesn't "see other people" does she? What an ugly ugly ugly woman she is. I'm sorry that Shannen had to go. She was absolutely adorable and sweet during her dances and liked her performance on Monday better than anyone else's. Then we have Kate - who puts no effort into her routines (I'm sorry but NOBODY can be that bad if they're truly trying) and who admits she's there just to make a few bucks (and bounce her oversized and uneven tatas). God bless you Tony. You deserve a medal for what you're doing. ABC should give you a million dollar bonus when you're done with the shrew.

LisaNH said...

Last night's decisions have really made me lose faith. I am so darned discouraged now by any justice in the world. Seriously, Kate is a vile person, self centered, self absorbed, cares nothing for anyone or anything except herself and she gets rewarded time after time. Yet people who are good and decent and do what they can for others, work hard,live right get stepped on. While Kart always comes out smelling like a rose, despite her bad behavior.

It's about money. It's not about who voted or who is a better dancer. It's about controversy and money. If they can get people to watch because Kate has controversy attached to her then all the better. The networks are tied in with politics. They lie about Obama...why shouldn't they lie about Kate Gosselin? They want to make money...that is all TV does. Make money. If she wants a career in being a freak then she will have that audience and whatever TV network wants to make money right along with her can...they will. I pulled up the video on Youtube and laughed at how fat she looked and stupid the entire situation was. She can't get along with anybody and its her gimmick. The public who follows her are just as stupid as the people who give her money.

So next week is 'everyday life' according to Kate.

Lemme guess the song....Psycho Killer by the Talking Heads....just watch.

No, it is going to Paparazzi by Lady Gaga.

"Now to the real topic- I find the ongoing tragedy regarding eight innocent children abhorent. How would you like to be Maddy or Cara going to school after this?

Who is there for the children- to counsel them, to offer a shoulder to cry on after being teased and taunted and made a laughing stock in their fragile world called school?"

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

Rest assured that this is not happening in their fragile world called school, and if becoming a laughingstock were a possibility in the future, there are compassionate people there if they need a shoulder to cry on.

"Watch the video as it is pretty funny. Her partner sounds just as arrogant as she is. He abruptly walks out of the interview leaving Kate hanging when the interviewer questions him for being a tough teacher."

Tony is not arrogant, but sick of this woman and was not going to be treated like he was at fault. It's obvious he saw what the reporter was trying to do and he wasn't going to be part of it. It was the "Kate" show and decided not to participate in it. I commend Tony for walking away (in disgust). He is in a horrible position. It's really unfair for anyone to blame him.

Can someone please post a link to a video of Kate shrieking after she finds out Shannon was eliminated?? I missed it.

"I do not believe children should EVER be on a reality tv show. I also believe that Federal laws should be put in place to protect them, similar to child actors."

I totally agree! That's my one reason for reading this blog. Those who have said there will one day be a Gosselin Law are right on. I can think of 8 reasons it's too late. But maybe it can spare the childhoods of others who follow.

(Wait, did I say "one reason"? Okay, I have to admit the comments on the jive dance were hysterical. I laughed out loud when lidandan wrote that Kate's face changed from :D to >:| in a second! And there were too many other funnny comments to list. So make that two reasons...)

Rebecca F. said...

What is weird to me is that everyone else is featured on youtube but I am having a lot of trouble finding Kate's dance in episode 2. I only found one and it goes into some very small screen about 1/2 way through.

I can't watch the abc site from Canada. Anyone have a link (not hulu either) that we can see her dance?


Thanks.

Sorry ppl from Pennsylvania, Kate cannot identify with you as she is the only one from the state on TV--- (Her words, not mine) Watch for yourself.

Oh sweet corn!! Did she really say she's the only person from PA on tv.
Im falling off my chair laughing...

Doesnt she realise she's a fool for hire?

lalaland said...

Would love to know what Tina Fey would have to say since Kate is "the only person from Pennsylvania on tv."

Not to mention Bill Cosby, Will Smith, and countless others!

I just watched the results online. Did anyone else notice how Shannen completely ignored Kate and her attempt of "elimitation love". Accepted from Tony, The new Aussie guy, Pam and Mark... but walked away from Kate.

I can't have been the only one to see that and chuckle just a bit. Though Shannen has her reputation borne of her own poor choices, behaviors and/or misunderstandings in the past, in this show she has appeared to be nothing but classy and pleasant. Kate is showing her true colors without the TSC veil of protection and it's brilliant.

******** UPDATE, UPDATE ********

Prepare yourself people. TwinkleToesKate has done it again!

Regarding their plans for next week's performance (hint: has to do with both Jon & Kate)...

I'm going to go puke now.

Ashley K. said...

She really doesn't "see other people" does she?
------------------
Only Mr. Gray who happens to be in almost every video in the background. Hard to imagine Kate needs a bodyguard in tow on the set of DWTS. Oh wait there is Pam Anderson! :)

And just because the children seem normal at school, does not mean they are not feeling the effects of their mother making a complete idiot out of herself on national television.

And Kate did not spend her birthday with the children. She spent Saturday morning with them and the nanny baked brownies for the children to deliver breakfast in bed to Kate. Then Kate and her ever present bodyguard left for LA.

Kate was no where near the children on Sunday. They were still in PA despite the rumors that they headed to LA.

Oooh oooh ooh, here's the link to Shannen's elimination and Kart's reaction:

Bleeting Sheeple said...

"Lemme throw this out there.... instead of spreading all our votes out, perhaps we should all consolidate and back Pam full force since I can definitely see that Kart does NOT like Pam.

What does everyone think????"

********


Even though I'm rooting for Pam, Nicole, and Erin, I'm not even sure it's worth it to vote. Since abc.com lets you create an account with any email address and doesn't seem to send any confirmation, a person could potentially make up hundreds of emails that aren't even real and vote thousands of times (potentially is the key word, I shudder at the thought that someone would devote that much time to a tv show).

But it is a scary thought. What's to stop a sheeple with too much time on their hands or (a more sinister thought) TLC from just voting and voting for Kate?

The only way to prevent this is if there was a limit of votes coming from a single IP address, but if they're not even bothering to do something as basic as checking to see if an email address is real before letting you vote, I can't imagine they do this. This contest is rigged.

Because she was probably on the squad just for the popularity factor. She most likely made no effort to be good at it - just like she's doing now on DWTS.

PasoDoble said...

"Well, if this report is true, next week's dance is going to be a "dramatic" reenactment of Jon and Kate's life in the last two years. Yeah, you read that right. Once again, Jon is helpless fodder for Kate's ambitions."

**********

I think I just threw up in my mouth a little. Just when you think the whole Gosselin saga can't get any crazier or lower! It's unreal!

What are they going to do for that dance? Have Kate drop 6 baby dolls and then do a dramatic dance where they go to churches and pretend they need money? Then have Kate attack Tony with a wooden spoon so he flees off the stage with Pam?

Momof2 said...

LINKS PLEASE!!! I was unable to watch and I'd love to see all these little snippets but can't find them. Could you gals post all your links?

TIA

Jane in CA said...

I think immortalizing her divorce in Irish tap dance won't win her any points, but if she wants to be a vindictive bitch on national tv... ABC is gonna eat that up.
* * *

Is this for real? I mean, did Kate & Tony get assigned to do a River Dance and they are supposedly going to have as their "story," her divorce from Jon?

This has all kinds of hilarious written all over it.

My first thought was an old Seinfeld show, the one where Elaine has a co-worker who never moves her arms. She just can't swing them normally like others do. I am picturing Kate with her arms held stiffly down to her side, a scowl on her face as she lead foots it around the dance floor.

CLONK! CLONK! CLONK! SCREEECH!

CLONK! CLONK! CLONK! TONEEEEEEEEE! You're not understanding how to explain these steps to me!!

CLONK! CLONK! THUD!

You can see Stevie Boy on the left in the background behind Neicy....I guess he's guarding Kate from all the other Stars...so ridiculous. And notice that as Neicy's partner talks about Kate...some of the interview is cut out and spliced back together...wonder what they cut out?

Mimi said...

In the Washington Post Style section today, this article appeared: "Gosselin gives 'Dancing' plenty of ratings kick"

With Gosselin leading a skeeved-up roster of celebrities ABC's dance competition clocked its biggest opening audiance ever -more than24 million viewers. About 23 million of them tuned in again Monday-to watch Gosselin turn her patented "Jon & Kate Plus 8" Emasculator-a-tron on professional dance coach Tony Dovolani, who weirdly reacted the same way Jon Gosselin did,traring off his mike and walking out , saying, " I quit".

It is all about ratings and that is the "fix" Khate can't walk let alone dance. Shame on you ABC!!

zoey said...

Oh Gross.. talk about exploitation.. i read her dance next week will tell the story of "jon and Kate" THIS IS JUST WRONG! leave the guy alone, if he cant defend himself in the press KATE, you shouldnt push his buttons via the press

just wondering said...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hVkSE-7PidA&feature=player_embedded

Here is the video of the argument, the dance, and the judging. Enjoy!

Jersey said...

Kate is ratings gold. ABC won't let her go too quickly. Buzz Aldrin is an American hero and probably honestly did receive alot of votes, that's why he's still there. Shannon was a simple choice since her parnter was hurt and couldn't continue on. To the network it made sense that she be the one who was "voted off".

Babs said...

I have searched everywhere,and followed the links posted here, with Kate saying, in an interview that she is "the only person from Pennsylvania on tv." Watched the interviews, and never heard that at all.

I am a firm believer that she will be on DWTS for a while. The controversy that follows her, is great for ratings!!! She believes she is a star, and the world is feeding that belief by writing about her, watching her, reading about her, voting for her, etc, etc.
She somehow has some big Execs in her corner, and these last 2 weeks, and the next, have been scripted like a well written play! And the disclaimer at the end of the roll-up credits with DWTS, is very accurate!!! Each week, the results (winners/losers), will be at the discretion of the producers. aka:(NOT THE VIEWERS/VOTERS).

They plan to milk that cow til she is dry!!! And the feeding frenzy is far from over!!!

PS.
And Kate, if you're reading....show us a new trick....something called CLASS and dignity!! You can learn this from Shannon; mirror the way she acted when she was eliminated!!

Maggie said...

You can watch the whole elimination show as well as the two previous shows on abc.go.com.

TeamTonyD said...

I teach dance, and from the clip of the argument I can tell that Tony is trying desperately to do everything the best way.
A dance teacher is active and demonstrates the step, usually starting slow and then escalating the speed in small increments so the dancer becomes more comfortable, the student either mirrors or stands behind the teacher. In that clip Tony is demonstrating ALL over the place.
There is no excuse for her not paying attention when she's got a teacher who is willing to demonstrate at a slower pace than what will occur in performance so she can get the choreography set in her head. I do it all the time with my students. Heck, I managed to teach a three-minute waltz to a bunch of non-dancers in two hours of rehearsal and they looked so much better than Kart because they were committed to learning.
I think she's annoyed with him because he's not showing any interest in her other than the professional interest he is paid to show her.

Momof2 said...

I want to see where Shannon dissed Kate when Kate tried to console her...anybody gotta link?

Momof2 said...

They probably told Kate to pretend to be surprised that she wasn't eliminated and she overdid it...ya know...cuz she's not an actress

Canadiangirl said...

Not that this is a shocker, but she was like so overjoyed that she was not voted off that she totally ignored the poor couple that was. Everyone else was trying to commiserate with them and she was in the background doing armpumps for herself. Like it matters if she survives? DWTS is the last place A-list stars are found.

Suzanne said...

I agree w/ the poster above that Kate is purposely dancing like a Kart and will indeed "improve". Noone can dance THAT badly. She IS the drama queen and by this time realizes that is her ONLY selling point. Just another TLC backed script. She will "never quit", bless her heart.
