Dancing With the Sheep?? Wow I didn't know Sheep could dance! LOL

Katie711 said...

Well it starts already. Someone is posting on tabloid sites a link to Kate and Tony's facebook page and leaving a message to " HELP Kate and Tony win DWTS.. Make sure you VOTE for them"

It amazes me that Kate has people that actually think she is a genuine person and a decent one at that.

Should be VERY interesting to hear and see what happens on Monday with ole girl dancing. And what she will say WHEN she gets voted off.. The exit interview will go something like:

Ummmm.. I have 8 kids Ummmmmmm I had to travel 3500000 miles a week to get here, UMMMMMM Ummmmmm Ummmmm I had to go on my book tour ummmmmm its RIDICULOUS that I got the boot so early.

Well see.

Calgary7 said...

Given that old proverb about the devil and idle hands ...

I hope she lasts a few weeks at least on the show as it will keep her busy and out of trouble.

The kids deserve that much (and more). Any break from the melodrama called Kate.

Don't vote her off too early!!!

Kate, I want to wish you luck by saying "BREAK A LEG!"

twoleftfeet said...

"Ummmmm, I'm dancing for my kids, because, like, you know, they love to watch me dance. Ummm, they were excited to turn their playroom in the basement into a dance studio for me. And, umm, my kids, I have eight of them, they are the reason why I did this. My kids, I do it all for them. I have eight kids and they are my LIFE."

she is evil said...

Oh, Boooooooo!! already.

BMWoP said...

I think this whole Kate on DWTS thing is going to be nothing about Kate's actual dancing, and everything to do with a showdown of Sheeple versus Haters.

The sad thing is, all the sheeple votes go toward one person, and the hater votes have to be divied between 9 others. There could be ( hypothetically ) 10 votes FOR kate and 50 votes AGAINST Kate, but those 50 votes will get split amongst several other dancers and leave Kate looking like she's better.

Of course this sheeple edge will then bite her in the butt as the dancers are whittled down and there will be no way she can win. I'd just hate to see her not be first to go. She needs to be knocked off her high horse asap.

I'd personally rather see her taken down a few notches than see her actually have to work. I think she's enjoying Tony's company a wee bit too much and anything that will nip that in the bud will be worth it. She will not be happy having Tony's attention and arm candy/red carpet dates taken away too soon.

PatK said...

I hope it's been drilled into her head that when it's show time and you make a mis-step, you DON'T stop, squeal and play slap your partner.

PaM said...

We really do all have to get together and pick a person to vote for. I don't care who it is as long as it isn't KG.

Has one already been chosen and I've missed it?

If we can get her of within the first 2 shows, everyone who normally watches the show can then really start voting for their favorite and once again enjoy the show.

It's time to send a clear message to Khate, TLC, ROL and the rest of the news outlets, NO MORE KHATE!

Elspeth said...

Would a good plan be to vote for whoever has the lowest judge's score (if it isn't Kate) since that's half the final score?

observer said...

I saw over on celebitchy, the photo with her and her partner/bodyguard that he doesn't have his wedding ring on. I thought he was married, and they were all friends?

Tami said...

I liked Mark Ballas's comments about her. He said Tony is a good teacher and could whip her into shape and added 'whatever you can do with THAT'. hee hee. Guess he loves her as much as Johnny Weir. Should be interesting to see the vibe between her and others.

Teryn said...

My guess is the sheeple don't like Pam Anderson. Pam had the lowest percentage last week in an online poll asking who people were going to vote for. Those silly sheep see her as a threat to Kate.

I'm NOT saying this is how it should be, but I'm thinking we should vote for Pam. Her partner is brand new and fans sometimes like to vote for their favorite pro, and they know nothing about this guy. That, coupled with Pam not having the best of reputations gives her a huge disadvantage right off the bat.

History has shown that the model types get voted off first.

I also really don't think the judges votes matter too much. Sabrina Bryan had excellent judges scores and she still got booted because the other dancers had a bigger fan base.

Katezilla with a weave said...

Jake Pavelka just tweeted that he met Kate today.

I thought she was only going to be away from her kome for 2 days a week. Today is Saturday, tomorrow is rehearsal and Monday is the show. Once they started voting people off that's a 4th day. Is my math off or is someone lying through their bleached teeth?

LOLOL! Kate is a mess for sure. I remember her incessant shriekish laugher while riding a horse on the take the boys to a ranch show. Hideous. I'm shocked the horse didn't buck her off.

Brummygirl said...

Well at least she will have the Devil's Vote!!

Jenny said...

I'm going to wait for the first show to see if there's someone who truly stands out from all the rest that I can vote for. And if it turns out to be too early to make a choice right away, maybe as was suggested earlier, we could all just vote for Buzz for a while, figuring at least he's a nice guy and we'd be boosting someone's chances besides K8's of staying in longer.

Or maybe Elspeth's idea of all of us voting for whoever gets the lowest scores from the judges would make more sense? (Unless it's K8 who gets the lowest scores of course!)

These are just a couple of ideas so if there's a better one, I hope ya'll will share so we can all get onboard with it before Monday night. It would be good if we could all be on the same page.

I'll check back here before the show to see if we've all decided to do one thing.

And finally I'd just like to say that if K8 somehow hangs on and comes close to winning...or actually wins the thing because of her "devoted fan base"...I'm going to chalk it up to some kind of fraud going on and vow never to watch the show again!

Gimme Gimme said...

Unless she has just been trying to fool the people all along, I don't think she has worked nearly hard enough. She has been more interested in squiring Tony and the bodyguard (count em that's 2 men) around and is enjoying the attention from Tony way much. She seems way up there and very energetic to have been dancing her butt off in the wee hours of the night.

But I plan to vote for the best dancer, along with hopefully the rest of America. I think that is the way to make my vote stronger. And something just tells me it won't be Mean Mommy.

NT said...

It's very telling that the only time she can take the kids anywhere is when someone else is paying. I'm sure DWTS paid for the Taylor Swift concert. The last time they went to a concert,TLC paid.

Damage Control said...

I'll be voting for Shannen. Her touching story about dancing for her dad on Lopez Tonight did it for me. She's probably going to need all the votes she can get, too.

Break a cankle Kate!

Jake said...

I think Kate wants to go first. She will have already gotten a big payday, and lots of preshow publicity. Going first will minimize the work and the embarassment and Kate will be able to say "well we knew I never had dance experience and now I can get back to my kids." Getting voted off first also lows her to have the book tour sooner rather than later. It is a win for her to get voted off first.

I am not voting one way or another as I have never voted during DWTS. Kate has gotten the most pre-show hype (doesn't matter if it is bad comemntary because it still promotes the show). This tells producers that she is a ratings draw even if the media covers her just to highlight her bad behavior and people watch to see the train wreck.

It will be even worse if the number of votes the show gets (for her or others) the weeks Kate is on is higher than the number of votes they typically have gotten those weeks in past seasons. It will be easy for them to conclude that Kate was the draw and we will see more opportunities coming her way.

I think that is why she says she laughs at all the criticism - she can laugh about it all the way to the bank because people still care enough about her to keep the hype going.

Oh they may be able to dance but they can never lead!!!

rural mom said...

DWTS is no different from anything else TLC has plugged Kate into. We know she can't write, co-host, act, tell jokes or dance. So the fix is already in. The judges will say kind things, the host will likely acknowledge all the controversy around Kate and give her the opportunity to thank her fans and thank her God and thank her children, and I suspect they'll play her as the dark horse who actually can dance. The audience will be told week after week that Kate is just the bravest struggling single mother ever.

rural mom said...

The bio for Kate on the DWTS website has this interesting phrase "Kate found herself the author of three books". Is this the new way of dodging the fact she didn't actually write these books? Likely. Wonder if one day Kate will also find herself guilty of exploiting a 20 year old rich doc's son who did not want and was not seeking a wife and kids, and will she find herself guilting of exploiting these children, and find herself guilty of selling them out for own gain? Go find yourself Kate.

lukebandit said...

just saw a promo for the soup with joel mchale. HILARIOUS! he seared kate BAD! there was the pic of kate and tony posing with kate with the beige and white dress. then they had them standing there with jon laying down and they had kates feet near jons you know and then joel said that kate would be dancing on jon's genitals? i laughed out loud. and the new soup will not be on until tuesday the day after DWTS debuts.
does anyone have a link to the joy bahar interview with johnny weir? thanks in advance.

remember on Live with Regis and Kelly?

witch.

Ontario Mama said...

I liked Mark Ballas comments and agreed with him. My post were up all day yesterday and today they have been erased from the DWTH website. Wonder Why? Maybe it's because I also said that I thought the votes would be rigged in KHate's favor by TLC. The longer she stays on, the more free advertising they have for their channel. That D-Lister sure has a lot of people in her pocket. I don't understand why. It's definitely not her people skills, or her mothering style. She is lousy at both of those.

I love johnny said...

Here is an article written about Johnny Weir's hate of Kzilla. Sorry if it was posted already.

my9cats said...

I'll vote for Buzz out of respect and admiration.
As I've never watched the show I am clueless as to how to do it.
Could someone post clear directions as to how to do this either by phone or internet? Would be greatly appreciated. Being old-fashioned I believe on voting on merit. I see sheeple have turned this into a jr high popularity contest where merit and ability don't count at all.

Proudgrandma said...

You know, I have another spin on this "lets get her off as fast as we can" angle. Lets NOT get her off too soon. Lets leave her there, lets make her sweat, lets give the kids a break from her, lets see her really have to work her butt off for a few weeks, then just as she thinks she has it in the can, lets SLAM her and get her out of there. I want to see this lady really sweat. OOps, did I say "Lady"? Sorry, a "Lady" (british standards) has class.

grannoftwo said...

..I really think that TLC has paid ABC off to keep Kate on for several weeks to at least get their money back for the expense of the dance floor in her home and all the expense of flying her back and forth here and there...so whatever we do will probably be in vain....there have been seasons when I tried to vote for a certain team and got credited for another...earlier when the show was in its infancy..this did happen to me...but I am unclear whether it was an error on their part or them just trying to get a particular team to win...it is reality tv you know....

Ohio Buckeye said...

I hope GWoP does one of their classic recaps. They are always priceless.

I will not be watcing "Dances With Hooves" (thanks to a previous poster for that description: I LOL every time I think of it!)

Anonymous said...

Vote for Neicy!

Jenny said...

I do love Niecy too...she's funny and also has a good heart from all I've seen.

I understand why some would want Kate to stay on for a while, to keep her away from the kids and to make her work hard. But I respectfully disagree. We all know she's going to find a way to be away from the kids anyway and on the other point, if I have to choose between seeing her work hard & actually break into a sweat or going home, I prefer to see her go home so as NOT to add to the # of shows where she would be getting $75,000 per episode.

I'm guessing she'll have to be on the 1st show to get introduced with the others, and into the 2nd show to do her routine with Tony and face the judges, and then to come back on the 3rd show to be (hopefully) the first person voted off. That way yes, she would come away with a minimum of $225,000 but at least she would go away humbled by being the 1st to be voted off. I don't wish her harm (so she would fall & get the sympathy vote) but I do think she's due for a little humiliation.

Jane in California said...

I'm torn. On the one hand, it would make me smile to see Kate voted off first. The sour look on her face, her lame explanation that she did the best she could in the few "free hours" she has during the day, being that she is the sole caretaker of eight young children! Wonder if she'd toss out that 'I was already using 20 out of 24 hours of each day just doing my usual work around the home,' lame excuse. She would not be a gracious loser, and I wonder how painful it would be for her to keep that fake smile pasted on her face the entire time?

On the other hand, if she is not voted out first, that will require her to yet again make a very public ass of herself on next week's show.

In my opinion, she has zero chance of winning, nor making it to the final five. If they are paid a flat rate to participate, I might not mind her sticking around as say, Tom DeLay did last year. He did it for the publicity, and once he was off, immediately faded back into the slimy woodwork from whence he came. So I doubt this attempt to win over new viewers will do Kate much good either, as she's so extremely unlikeable overall.

I think of the two scenarios, I am slightly more in favor of making her stick around for 2-3 weeks, suffering the indignity of the viewing public seeing what a terrible dancer she is, and most telling, the way she interacts with Tony. He is fairly well liked among the viewers, as he's a nice guy, usually quite charming to his partners, etc. To see Kate try her passive-aggressive stuff on Tony and insinuate it's his fault that she isn't doing better, would certainly lose her audience good will.

And finally, I just want to see her in front of those three judges, having to listen to not one, not two, but three people critique her, over and over again! Let's hope each and every one tell her exactly what she's doing wrong, repeatedly.

Savannah said...

Realistically, she just doesn't stand a chance. I've never watched the show, however, I saw a followed the link someone posted and viewed each of the couples. The woman from the PussyCat Dolls looks to be the most promising contender. Then there's Pamela Anderson. My third guess is Buzz Aldrin. He seem to have a certain charisma that he brings to the table. Therefore, Kate Gosselin just doesn't stand a shot. That is if the voters vote solely based on the talent disaplayed.

Jenny said...

my9cats, you mentioned you don't know how to vote when the time comes.

I've always called to vote and the phone # for each couple is shown during the show. Another poster and long time viewer of DWTS said that the limit is 11 calls for one couple. But I plan to use all 3 cell phones I have in my household and vote 11 times with each phone.

I've never voted online but plan to do that also since another poster said the voting there is "unlimited." I'm sure we'd just go to abc.com/shows/dancingwiththestars and they'll have all the couples shown there along with a button to vote for each one.

Laurie said...

As others have said I'd like to see her last at least 3 weeks and do more than just a waltz....I want to see her have to work, sweat and maybe even get a blister or two. I just saw a profile on Grace Kelly and it said that she danced so hard and practiced so hard that she sometimes blead through her shoes.

Amanda L. said...

How about don't watch DTWS? That's what I'm doing. ANY attention paid to this idiot is good attention, negative or positive.

Whoever stated previously that there's a HUGE amount of creative PR phrasing going is SO right. What an innovative way to snake around the truth and keep it hidden. The above is an excellent example.

I wrote a book, and I have to say I never "found myself" the author of a book. I worked my butt off writing hours every day for years. The same is true for every author I know. I would sure like to just "find myself" the author of the one I'm writing now. THAT would save lots of work.

(Say, while I'm at it, might I throw in...Hey, Kate: BAD MOM! BAD MOM! BAD MOM!)

Thanks for the great catch, Rural Mom.

I think The Lucifer Channel has finally found the nail for Mommy Dearest 2.0's coffin. I don't think anyone has anything to worry about when it comes to votes. Kate has done a superdedooper-ish job of making a hot mess of everything she touches. By putting her on Dancing with the Hooves,(priceless..by the way) they have put her in nothing more than a popularity contest. According to EVERYTHING I've read lately, she's been called alot of things, but popualar isn't one of them. Even people who used to defend her, are tired of the "all for my kids" routine. I'm sure some of you remember what happened to the original Mommy Dearest when she realized her fame had diminished? She took the last train to Crazy Town. It makes me think of Kate freaking out over gum on a bear and melted ice cream. I remember thinking "grab a straw and call it a milkshake, psycho"! The really sick part is since the "Gosselin brand" is a creation of TLC, they will continue to profit even when Mommy Dearest 2.0 starts drooling on herself and crying for Hannah to tell her how much everyone loves her. TLC sees her for what she is. Easy money. She seems oblivious to the out pouring of negative press she's getting. I hope to all that is holy those nannies hide the wire hangers before they are released from their duties, which by most accounts seems sooner than later.

gherkin said...

Don't you think the other dancers and "stars" must be laughing their heads off at Kate's ever present bodyguard? Come on! No one else has a bodyguard there. Even Erin Andrews who had that horrible guy stalking her and shooting nude video of her doesn't travel with a bodyguard. Kate is so full of herself. It is just laughable.

Kate's Clomping Cankles said...

Virginia Mom, Kate's hysteria & over dramatized laugh & screams will put man & beast alike into counseling. Not to mention her abusive condescending attitude.

Seriously, I cannot find one thing positive to ever say about that woman, because all I see is greed and evil. The thought of her dancing on that show, repulses me beyond belief.

Katie711 said...

Im sorry but I too am having a hard time believing that Khate has been getting ready for DWTS for a year now. She had NO idea that she was going to be on the show and she just threw the bone out there that she wanted to be on DWTS on the Jay Leno show. Dont mean to sound harsh but I would need proof that she was indeed practicing for a year. Sorry :(

Savannah said...

One thing to add..who the heck picks the outfits for the women to wear? Kate's dress does absolutely nothing for her. It's comical. Even with the push-up bra, boob job or whatever, the dress is most unflattering. Almost makes me feel sorry for her. And as someone has mentioned, the slit emphasizes her thick tree trunk leg clear down to her cankle and Goliath sized foot. Does anyone else think Kate has a "manly" face. She could pass as one of those drag queens, IMO. It could be that someone behind the scenes has a sense of humor? All the other women look dazzling. Poor Tony. . . I hope he keeps it simple. I doubt if she is capable of going the distance anyway. Too much hard work, much like a marriage- she expects everything to be given to her. I'll DVR it but can't stand to sit through such a show.

She's come undone said...

Actually I would pay good money to see Kate do the Lindey Bop or Hop or whatever it is called (can't remember). I believe I would be guaranteed to fall in the floor rolling with laughter and I do love a good laugh. I'm laughing right now just picturing it in my head.

Hard to Keep Loving John said...

oh, pulleeze..........Steve is hardly a bodyguard. He is her main squeeze as witnessed by that steamy video of their arrival in NYC, Plus, he gets paid for it!

KyPastor said...

LoveMyBigFamily said,
Just an idea. Not meant to offend, but it seems very logical to me. If everyone would just move on, she'd go back to being a bossy mother of eight that lives in an obscure part of Penn. Isn't that what we have all wanted for the kids?

+-+-+-+-+-

Yes, to a point. However, what we are all hoping (praying?) for is that the children will come out of this with the pay they have earned,
a counselor who will help them walk through the damage that has been done, and some stability that comes from a mother and father who put them first, even if it means they don't receive the biggest, best and flashiest their mother has determined they deserve.

JaneD said...

"LoveMyBigFamily"

Unfortunately, you are absolutely right. All the controversy is what is keeping Kate in the news. I believe that is how Kate's people get her these gigs. They tell people that if they put Kate on their show they can guarantee they will get high ratings because of all the controversy.

I also think her fan base is small and consists mostly of pre-teens and teenagers who always like to have someone to be their idol. In this case they want a mom just like Kate.

Now THAT's funny! Thanks for the laughs! My sympathies to both the horse and K8's Clomping Cankles! (And if Tony is a smart man, he'll be wearing steel-toes shoes the night of the big dance competition with Clompety, Clopety K8.

Totally agree. Earlier I was on the TMZ site and they showed a clip of Tiger's mom at the L.A. airport. The TMZ photog was hounding her but she ignored him and kept walking. What struck me is she had NO BODYGUARD WITH HER, or at least within camerashot. The only other person near her was a woman close in age to her. My first thought is Tiger's mom travels without a bodyguard (especially these days) but Kate does?

Ohio Buckeye said...

Let's see.... as far as we know:

Jon does not use a body guard.

The 8 kids are not beneath the watchful eye and protective arms of a body guard.

So, the ONLY Gosselin that feels compelled to cough up the $$$ for an always-by-your-side-always-at-your-command body guard is K8.

I guess K8 considers herself to be the only one sufficiently worthy and valuable to warrant a purse-carrying bodyguard?

You just nailed it on the head. Don't expect to see The Dancing Cankle Queen booted off right away. I thought I had read somewhere on line that DWTS ratings had dropped last season, so they will manipulate the polls to keep the train wreck on for a while since she is drawing publicity.......

Midnight Serenade said...

"In this case they want a mom just like Kate."

An absentee mom?

Denise said...

I just read that DWTS was down 20% last season.
DON"T WATCH!! I am sure Kate will be featured on all the Hollywood gossip shows and you can see it there.
ABC is in 4th place and the Caylee Anthony payoff is not going to help them. They are desperate.

JFaye said...

We need to organize the votes so that we are behind whatever couple Kate and Tony are up against. I doubt she is going to be talented enough to win. There have been some real stinkers in the championship circle due to their fans -- Jerry Rice, Emmit Smith both come to mind -- we got the kids off tv. We can do the same to Kate.

rural mom said...

The waltz is a pretty safe dance to open with and I predict they will put Kate on first as her nerves couldn't stand the wait to go on. Now if only I could talk the sound guy to swap out the music Tony selected and put my mix tracks in - as Kate clomps onto the stage and waits in Tony's arms for her cue, the cue she'd hear would be "Who let the Dogs out", followed by "Super Freak", "Dancing Queen" and ending with "The Bitch is BAck". And dear Kate, don't even think of trying to make a buck off of "Dances with Hooves", that is my trademark for you.

Anne said...

So does TLC have every employee in their corporate umbrella lined up to man the phones Monday night and call, call call for Kate!?!

Carol from PA said...

I for one will not watch until that 'Clown Car Uterus' is voted off the show. I refuse to watch even one minute of that bitch. Just won't do it.

Aunt Chris said...

I'd like to see her doing the Quick Step. Tony better put on some shin guards for that because she's sure to kick him multiply times! I can't imagine her even bothering to learn any steps, thinking it's her right just to do what she wants and make him work around her.

NT said...

I don't think Kate's been getting ready for a year. Tom Bergron said in an interview that Kate was the last one picked a few weeks before they announced the cast members. I guess they were not sure that they wanted to pay what she expected. I was looking at the tv guide and why is DWTS only on one day this week? Shouldn't it be two days to vote someone off? If not,that means they get 2 weeks to rehearse for the next dance. I haven't watched in awhile so I'm not sure how many days it's on.

Button button said...

Remember when Marie Osmond forgot she was in a competition when she was on DWTS?

She came out like a wind-up doll or puppet. It was awful. I was embarrassed for her.

She seemed to think she was in her own show, forgetting all about the competition.

Judge Bruno Tonioli said, "This is the loopiest thing I've ever seen,It's like Baby Jane and the Bride of Chucky!"

She was obviously annoyed at his comment, but she certainly deserved it.

I do hope the judges will be that truthful to all next week's dancers, particularly, well, ummm, well, like, well, ummm you know who!

jojow said...

I'm actually on the side of seeing Kate stay around a few weeks and have to work her butt off. The first dance is a waltz - how hard is it really to go 1-2-3 in a circle. I don't mean that dancing it CORRECTLY and beautifully isn't hard, but doing a passable job can't be too bad. After all, they have had some horrible dancers on there who've managed to make it through one dance.

What will be fun is when she has to cha-cha-cha and shake her booty. I'm quite interested in watching that...assuming she's awful. I'm going to cry if she's good.

I figure if she stays around a few weeks, she has to work very hard (and we know she hates that), get along with people who have NOT signed a confidentially agreement (and we know she can't), and increases the chances someone will finally start telling the truth about her.

Elmo said...

Need hype? Hire Kate!
You know that the only reason she gets air time on talk shows etc..

Tami said...

I find it very odd that on the View she said she has not lost weight yet. I don't recall seeing anyone previously who had not lost weight after working out hard practicing for a month before the show. She is either super lazy and not working hard or she had already been practicing a long time for this like someone else stated and she is not losing weight since her body is used to it.

Tami said...

rural mom, I was just reading your music for her. It made me laugh. If she got all the way to the end and did freestyle, it would be funny if she did it to the bitch is back or how about ballroom bitch? Too funny.

Tami said...

**********
Yes! I do think they laugh at her. Does anyone have that link of her arriving in NY with Steve? I've seen it mentioned, but have not seen the direct link.

As for voting, I am voting for the person I think is the best dancer as I always do. I don't decide ahead of time who I will vote for before seeing if they can dance. However, if someone has a bad night or two, I will still vote for them if I know they usually do better. I don't think there is any danger I'll vote for Kate since I know she'll suck.

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

You're right, she's not talented enough to win, my worry is that TLC may have purchased the win for her. After all I've seen to do with kate, it wouldn't' surprise me one bit. Sure it could mean death to the show, but then she's had that effect on shows before.

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

Yes, kate has always had an air of masculinity to me. She's very solid, very sturdily built & no, I've never found her pretty with the exception of possibly the very first special. Mind you I now wonder at what point my subconscious mind caught on to her unattractive behaviour before my conscious mind realized it.

Personally I think the offer may have been on the table already when Kate announced on Leno she would like to be on "DWTS".

rural mom said...

TLC is going for a complete image overhall with Kate on DWTS. Expect to see lots of footage of Kate near exhausation, gruelling work outs, getting by with little to no sleep, some tears about leaving her kiddies at home, maybe even some tears from the kiddies and much adoration for their mommy. They will also likely show Jon on a ski hill or shrug him off as someone who doesn't care enough to show up and pitch in. They are already referring to him as her cheating ex. Truth is Kate filed a No-Fault divorce and didn't ask for spousal support, all she wanted was to get rid of Jon and keep the lion's share of the profits from TLC, which went to her anyway.
I hope America sees through the lies and propoganda and says enough of this bullshit.

N.E. Psychologist said...

@ KyPastor
Yes, to a point. However, what we are all hoping (praying?) for is that the children will come out of this with the pay they have earned,
a counselor who will help them walk through the damage that has been done, and some stability that comes from a mother and father who put them first, even if it means they don't receive the biggest, best and flashiest their mother has determined they deserve.

Yes, praying.

I guess Tony has never seen the show, and I have never heard of anyone referring to Kate as 'nice'. LOL! Well, he is being paid. Does he wonder where her mom and dad and the rest of her family are?

Tony, Kate and Jon used those kids in order to attain wealth and fame. They sold them to a TV channel. They begged for money in churches just before moving into the 1.3 million dollar house. Kate has been crying poor, while not being poor since before the 6 were born. It's all lies.

In order for him to win ,she has to win too. Of course he will say nice things about her.

Publicity about her = publicity for him.

The better she does, the better he looks as he had an inexperienced partner.

Im sure there are other dancing couples who dont get along, but its better to project a happy image as the routine will look better.

rural mom said...

File this under despicable exploitation of the Gosselin children. On the DWTS website there is a feature allowing viewers to rate cast members from -5 to plus 5. When you click on Kate's name it allows you to rate her and then it brings up one of the Gosselin kids to rate, first time I tried it was Cara, then it was Collin.
The mind boggles at how any mother would have her kids exploited in this manner.
When interviewers ask Kate how she manages to get it all done, and Kate brags on about being an expert organizer and scheduler, someone needs to interject that maybe this is easy for her because she lacks maternal feelings, compassion, guilt and all the emotions mothers feel that keep them putting the children above their needs. What is Kate's body of work? It is her ability to abandon her children in pursuit of fame. That is the only thing you can credit her for.

I guess he just never watched her show and never saw her behave the way the rest if us have. Of course he's going to think she's nice. J&K+8 is over and she knows people are giving her grief for how she behaved, so she turns on "Nice Kate" now.

But we all know when the cameras disappear and the celeb friends aren't around, the Kate we all saw on her show comes back out behind closed doors. Just ask Mr. Wooden Spoon and the pap pics of Leah getting her butt whooped! We see what they refuse to see, and the kids will confirm it one day when they are old enough.

Also, what else is Tony going to do? He'd be an idiot to say anything bad about her. #1 He'd probably get in trouble with ABC and #2 he'd be taking away votes from himself and he'd lose $$$ if he gets booted too soon.

It just really ticks me that her antics and awful behavior was captured ON FILM and shown on tv IN OUR HOMES. We saw what we saw and rightfully formed our opinions about what we witnessed to be true. These people act like we saw nothing and have no basis to form an opinion against Kate...that we don't know her.

I think when someone comes into your home via a reality show and they behave like a shrew 95% of the time....you can rightfully say you know them and have a right to form an opinion about what your two eyes and ears witnessed.

And if Kate was "so nice", why in heavens name did her friends and family get shut out of her life? If she was soooo nice, why did her husband wig out? These Tony types are clearly easily manipulated by Kate's phoney baloney acts and they don't see how well she turns it on and off.

Is Kate-Aid made with organic sugar? And what the heck is up with the wives of Kates men? Tony claims his wife is such a fan of Kates and Steves wife and Kate are buddies?! I guess she is universally adored. Yep, a-dor-a-ble. I wonder if she has one of those hypnotic umbrellas that the Penguin used on Batman?

nanb said...

Proof Kate knew she was getting DWTS:

http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,20351194,00.html

Kate had more than a little idea they were interested in her. She is definitely vain enough to prepare for a year.

WhoDidWhatFirst said...

Tony's recent statement about Kate having a "work ethic" is proof that he knows very little about her or her reality show. Neither she nor Jon has ever shown any semblance of a work ethic or they wouldn't have felt that the tax-payers of Pennsylvania were obligated to support their family. Just more B...S...!

Ali B said...

Ohio Buckeye said...
Let's see.... as far as we know:

Jon does not use a body guard.

The 8 kids are not beneath the watchful eye and protective arms of a body guard.

So, the ONLY Gosselin that feels compelled to cough up the $$$ for an always-by-your-side-always-at-your-command body guard is K8.

I guess K8 considers herself to be the only one sufficiently worthy and valuable to warrant a purse-carrying bodyguard?

__________________________
My dad was a secret sevice agent and then an executive body guard for years until he retired. He has viewed some of the footage and photos with K8 and her bodyguard. He always laughs and says that the guy looks ackward and is constantly breaking the number one rule of training....he usually has something in his hands (like shopping bags or a Kate's purse). A good protector always keeps their hands free no matter what. I understand that her bodyguard is the senior executive VP of the international security agency she uses. With a huge staff of employees who are certified bodyguards and protection pros for hire I wonder why he felt compelled to work the line so to speak. It would be like a bank president coming out to act as a teller everytime a certain customer came in. I wonder when he has time for his normal executive duties if he is on the road with her most of the time. Very unusual.

In the posted article, Tony responds to a question saying ' Kate has never taken a dance step her life'.
Tony's response TOTALLY contradicts the 'Cara's Special Day' J & K + 8 episode when at the skating rink Jon makes a comment about he and Kate taking dance lessons and while embracing her in the middle of the roller rink asks, should we should them our dance moves. Also, IIRC, there was a J & K + 8 episode that NEVER aired but the episode description involved J & K taking dance lessons.

yeawhatever said...

Despite Kate's claims of NEVER taking dance lessons UTube the episode 'Cara's Day' (part 2) around the 9 minute 43 second mark proves otherwise!

BeDoneNow said...

The entire nation is laughing at her.

"Kate Gosselin, former star of "Jon and Kate Plus 8," (pro partner: Tony Dovolani): If the audience could vote for who they want to see eliminated first, Gosselin would win in a landslide."

I have. I think she is very masculine in build, appearance and her way of thinking. She reminds of the way fathers thought when they had to support their families by themselves. It does not matter what you miss because you are supporting the family. Fathers are not still like that, but, Kate is.

Huh said...

Tami said...
"I find it very odd that on the View she said she has not lost weight yet. I don't recall seeing anyone previously who had not lost weight after working out hard practicing for a month before the show. She is either super lazy and not working hard or she had already been practicing a long time for this like someone else stated and she is not losing weight since her body is used to it."

*******

That is really odd. Even the actresses and models that are twigs usually comment that they've lost weight, or at least toned up.

I wonder how long before TLC has some sort of dancing show, and Tony is part of it.....

And yep, I call bull Sh*ite- Cankle Qween said she hasn't lost any weight and according to the interview (http://omg.yahoo.com/news/dancings-tony-dovolani-whats-with-all-the-kate-hate/37804) she's dancing 6 hours a day EVERYDAY- plus "running around after the kids" (ahem yeah right) the weight should be just DROPPING off her....
Come on dancing is CARDIO and everyone knows that if you pump up the cardio the weight just drops off, especially 6 HOURS A DAY EVERY DAY..... again I call BULL SH*ITE!!!!

Marcia said...

If she says that she has lost weight, I'm sure in her mind, she is just admitting that she needed to lose weight. She is that narcissistic to not be able to admit to any possible flaws.

Also has anyone noticed that on the DWTS website, EVERYONE but Kate has a twitter account listed. She is just a snob and an outcast that she can't participate in the least little thing!

I Have A Secret said...

I told ya! I said this a couple days ago and got shut down by a few who didn't believe me.

Kate has known about this for a year. She took the year to prepare because at the time she was nowhere near in shape to do this. She had to be perfect and has a huge perfectionism issue, that she insisted on having time to get ready, and this included the high heals, tans, plastic surgeries and obsessive exercise.

This is why she wants to win so bad. She spent an entire year getting ready for this ( but wants her fans to think she was thrown in this within the last month or so ) so she would have a better physical presentation and hopefully not get out there and make a complete ass out of herself.

It is why she pushed for the divorce to get finalized by the end of 2009. She KNEW on Leno she was already signed up.

Loon Watcher said...

Apologies if someone else has already posted this (I don't have enough time to check right now), from AOL's "Inside TV" rundown on the DWTS contestants:

Kate Gosselin
Partner: Tony Dovolani
Odds: 100-1
Pros: Running after eight kids is bound to keep someone in good shape. Seems desperate to stay in the public eye, which should work toward her determination in training and performing well enough to stick around for awhile.
Cons: Her 15 minutes ended months ago.

could someone who uses Twitter please tell Tony that his sister most certainly does NOT speak for "all moms" when she says Kate is a good example of someone just supporting their kids (gag--his wife and sister are sheeple!)

And someone asked what he could have said instead of gushing about her and defending her? How about a simple "I am working with her and have not had a problem" and left it at that. Saying he does not understand why no one likes her and that she is a great mom screams ignorance and proves he never once watched or read a thing about her. So he has no room to talk.

Has anyone noticed that when the KHATE lovers post on ROL they post as if they are actually speaking to Khate? There is a bunch of posts there saying stuff like " go Kate we love you" " good work Kate " the list is endless. ( and GOD forbid you post something negative) ..

Now granted I realize that I have posted on here more this week then I have for a long time but come on some of the people over there who post hour after consecutive hour actually think they are talking to her. What does that tell ya? That they are as crazy as Khate is. You know those "people" are getting all jacked up right now getting ready for the show to start.

SkippyMom said...

Everyone that speaks of voting really needs to stop their DVR and read the disclaimer at the end of the show.

It says something along the lines of the final decision for who stays and who goes is up to the producers of DWTS.

Votes and judges scores do play into it, but as long as people are talking [good/bad] about any one dancer the producers can overrule both and keep the person on.

Please don't misunderstand - I would like her off asap- she her her $200,000 she can go home now. She "made the money to support her kids".

Brummygirl said...

I bet the Queen is shaking in her armadillo shoes by now and wondering how she got herself into this. Oh boy, I would not miss this for anything!!!

Bruno: Well darling, you look charming in your dress and we know you have no experience with dancing, but seriously, don't give up your day job of leeching the public.

Carrie Ann: (shaking her head). You were not pointing those large hands and toes. I expected more as I heard you were good at waltzing around the truth.

Len: Blimey, talk about a blinking bull in a china shop, my granny had better rise and fall in the boar war.

susan said...

Sometime between the hint-dropping on Leno and the official announcement on DWTS, I read a very hush-hush little blurb that K8was practicing dancing in Charlotte, NC, so I do think she's been working on her skillz for a while. All I can say is...break a leg, K8! And I hope it's not Tony's.

Anyone catch the opening? Kate mouthing "HI KIDS"? The show hasn't been on for 30 seconds and she's already using them to get votes.

Jenny said...

Hey west coast...so far Buzz just got the lowest scores out of everyone that's danced so far but there are still a few more to go. Sweet guy & an icon but he really was pretty stiff out there...but he's there to inspire other 80-somethings so the judges cut him some slack with their comments... but not with their scores...5, 4, 5. He'll probably end up with the lowest scores then next I would imagine would be Kate (just guessing here)...but she hasn't danced yet. So I'll probably be voting for Buzz. If he gets the support of all the old folks out there, even with his low scores, they could keep him on another week which could leave K8 with the lowest score and hopefully would go next time. Anyway...the show's not over yet...just wanted to share what's happening so far.

Katie711 said...

I guess I am confused. Some folks are saying that Khate has known about this gig for a year. If this is fact then there is no reason why you cant tell us how and where you heard this. Not saying I dont believe but Id like to read it someplace. I dont doubt that TLC went to her and said we can try to keep you on the air while Jon pulled the plug and DWTS was one of those things. Sorry if I sound skeptical.

She was very teary through all the comments.

Carrie Ann said something like, this must be hard for you, you are not a performer, not an entertainer (don't remember the exact words) but I was screaming NOT TALENTED in any way whatsoever...

Can't wait to see the score. She looked pretty bad, in my opinion but you never know with the voting.

Katie711 said...

KHATE was SLAMMED by the judges.. Bruno said that it looked like Tony was pushing a shopping cart around. "The technique was terrible" he said
and Carrie Ann said " your not an athlete your not a performer." and she never trained for something like this. She did say however she had a sweet vulnerability. But a LONG WAY TO GO.. HELLO KARMA

ROFLMAO-the look on her face after the reviews was priceless!! My nine year old son and his friends can dance better than that.

She's "glad that it's over, glad THAT MY KIDS CAN REST EASY TONIGHT." WTF?? My goodness, does she really think that her children's lives depend on her dancing performance on a TV show? If that were true, how pathetic. But it's not, which just makes her pathetic. And really, really narcissistic!!

Her score was 16, which may have been generous (I was thinking 15).

momtotwins2 said...

Some thoughts are I watched:
Wow, she looks like a moose.
She had no personality, no warmth, there wasn't any connection with them. Even Tony asked, in practice, if she wanted this, he doesn't see it.
Her dance was BORING.


Judges comments
"terrible"
"long way to go"
"it looked like tony was pushing a shopping cart" THE BEST ONE YET!

I think that last comment says it all. They weren't impressed, tried to be understanding but weren't feeling any love for her.

Scores:
6,5,5

and of course, she mentions her kids in her one second interview. Funny how others got to hold a conversation with Brooke and kate had her 5 word BS about being honored and that HER KID CAN BREATHE NOW.

WHAT?! Her kids!?

She really is a cold fish moron with no heart, no soul, no personality. It showed

groovymom00 said...

Ha! Did you see her face change when Bruno was talking, that friggin' painted on smile turned into a scowl real quick!!!!!
Ha ha ha ha!

cdnmom47 said...

I also got a kick out of the 'discussion' during their rehearsal...Tony doubting whether or not she wanted to be there. I really don't think she wants to be THERE DANCING necessarily...I think she just wants the publicity and to be on t.v. I don't think she realized how much work was involved.
Don't be surprised if there's an injury and she's out early..pity is good publicity.
Also, Tony doesn't seem to be too impressed with her.
BTW, I loved Pam Anderson! I thought she was great.

Virginia Mom said...

For the West Coast--Okay, I'm watching. I have only one thing to say:

**** IF LOOKS COULD KILL! ****

When the judges talked about her not being a performer and said Tony "looked like he was pushing a shopping cart around"-- WOW, SHE WAS MAD, AND SHOT THEM A NASTY LOOK SHE COULDN'T HIDE, FROWNING AND SCOWLING.

(Go ahead and gag now:) She danced to "Always a woman"..."She's frequently kind and she's suddenly cruel."

"I'm honored to be here and glad that it's over and glad that MY KIDS can rest easy tonight."

Her parting words. Score is 16, near the bottom.

Pamela Anderson dancing so far and looks pretty good.

Buzzmaam said...

Although I've watched this show for years, I've never voted. I gave all my votes to Buzz.

Rose said...

"I'm glad that my kids can rest easy tonight"? What the heck is that supposed to mean?!?! Is she projecting her "nerves" onto those innocent children when all they should really have to worry about is going to school, playing, and just being kids? I guess they aren't allowed to sleep or relax until Mommy is happy and calm. I'm sorry, but that is complete bull. Hopefully someday, this woman will learn to deal with life as it is and stop dragging her kids into every single manipulative game she has up her sleeve. News flash, Kate: it is not their job to be eight little sympathy votes for you, and it is certainly not their job to "rest easy" only when you are ready for them to.

Katie711 said...

What the heck kind of comment is "IM GLAD IT's OVER??" She stood there shocked while getting her scores ( which were just horrible but whatda expect. ) and had tears in here eyes. She is HISTORY on this show. But now seeing Pam dance I fear Zilla may have a chance to stay but NOT for long

OhMyGAWD said...

Keep Khate in! Keep Khate in! I want to see her do the Latin round! I was cracking up the whole time! What entertainment value. She looks like a fish out of water out there. She has NO personality whatsoever and it really shows through on prime time TV.

So when your partner basically implies that you have been acting like a bitch during practice, you reply it's because of your insecurities? I would say it's your arrogance. Where was she practicing? It did not look like a basment with the huge windows. That costume was horrendously horrendous.

Pony said...

All I can say is - Kate has enormous feet and doesn't know how to point her toes. She was stiff and awkward. I was a bit surprised that her scores weren't lower.

Katie711 said...

Sorry I take that back.. Pam just got a 21.. Sex sells. Maybe Khate should show more of her fake boobs.

Lissa said...

I feel so bad for Tony, it's not his fault he's paired with her, poor guy!

Ive read elsewhere of the love for Khate on the show, there are some crazies that just lurve the wench. makes me throw up in my mouth a little bit to think of how naive some people still are, in this day and age, with all our technology some people still believe everything they hear.

I will be watching though because I watch ever season.

KHATE said...

OMG, she was terrible. Not necessarily her dancing, but her uneasiness on the screen. OH, her kids will rest easier- YEAH RIGHT, that made me laugh, like they know to care or be scared! She looked so OUT OF PLACE. Her hi kids made me puke.

Hippie Chick said...

A shopping cart!! Hahahaha!!!

AZMom said...

Does anyone have the number to call in for Buzz? I'm in AZ but won't be watching. I will call in for him though. I almost wish I were going to watch just to hear Bruno's comments to kate.

gherkin said...

She was terrible!! Thought it was so funny that Pamela Anderson danced that super sexy number after Kate's awkward clomping around. Haha. Even though the judges didn't think Pam did great, they did give her a much higher score and said how much she was enjoying herself out there--unlike Kate.

The shopping cart comment was the best!

Amanda said...

How many times can you mention your kids in a minute?

She is so not use to criticism and she showed no grace.

Anyone notice that when they were showed practicing that it was in a studio and not the basement?

Just me said...

Grocery shopping will never be the same for me again!

seewhathappens said...

Kate's kids will 'rest easy' now that mommy has danced and I can 'rest easy' in my confirmation that Kate has ZERO personality and is a FAKE.

MayDay said...

After she got her scores she said..now my kids can relax!!! That comment had nothing to do with the questions Brooke was asking her. How about that song? Do you think she is trying to tell us something? Of course the song is all about her, I am sure.

Anonymous said...

OMG - that was the funniest thing I have ever seen. My daughter & I laughed hysterically....couldn't stop watching the train wreck. At one point, she was supposed to lift her leg up front with her toe pointed gracefully - instead her foot was at a right angle pointed at the ceiling. Boy was she pissed listening to the judges - if looks could kill......

They showed the basement too. Those pictures the kids painted were on the walls.

Balletshoes said...

For most of the show she had her elbows pressed at her sides and clapped. She had the same facial expression- full smile plastered on.
She looked like a nervous guest at a party who didnt know anyone else.

She did look way nervous during the dance and the judges commeted on it.

Even if it were said on someone else the shopping cart remark was too funny.

True Kate shone through when she had the mike. Started with an "um" and then the sweeping hand gestures she makes. I didnt understand her comment " the kids could rest easy"

Carrie the judge was right- she was not an athlete etc.

This is a LIVE show must have been terrifying especially having to wait until the end.

Go back to your shopping cart said...

Was it just me o did it look a little like Kate was expecting to or wanted to kiss Tony at the ned of their dance? I wonder if Katezilla has a crush on him? His wife and Steve should be very afraid...

________________
There WAS a shot of the basement.

You could see the canvas art that the kids did way back when. THe one Kate could look at because of the mess, but was done to coordinate the paint on the wall

Katie711 said...

Did you ever get that shopping cart at the store where the wheels dont work and you have to work hard to get it to work.. LOL LOL LOL that's Khate.. and the pic on this post now... PRICELESS..

amg1989 said...

Was that their basement? I think it was, wasn't it the tups "artwork" on the wall that they did on one of the episodes, where she picked out the colors they used to compliment the basement??

Did anyone see who was in the audience for her?

Go back to your shopping cart said...

Pooh on her for ruining a lovely Billy Joel song, it's always all about her isn't it?

XYZed said...

Pray thay she doesn't get the sympathy vote.

Hambone said...

I feel a faked injury coming on so she can bow out and save face.

She did look pretty ( they have amazing hair and make-up people ), but the dancing was terrible and the choreography WAY too easy.

She had a huge smile on her face the first hour, but after she danced...no more smile. You could tell she was wanting to run off and SOB.

And SHE LIED LIED LIED about not having a boob job! Those girls were huge tonight. Really huge. I'm tawlkin' 500cc huge.

Gimme Gimme said...

Pamela just blew me away, she was having a ball! That is the way it should be. I voted for her on the web and Nicole on the phone. They were both very good and had worked hard.

I hate to say it but Kate did better than I ever dreamed she would although you could tell she had not worked nearly as hard as the others. Too much play and not enough work. You play you pay.

Pushpushpush\ said...

I think all those "paprazzi" pics of her in the target carpark with the carts will suddenly cease.

Forget Kate, that statement is just funny in its own right

Pattypanda said...

I only saw Kate and Pam, but no comparison. Kate the shopping cart, I love Bruno. Kate was as stiff as a board, nothing graceful about her dancing. Tony did all the fancy footwork. Pam was hot and can move - did you see her leg lift? Hopefully Kate's on the red eye home to see her kids since the tups don't have school on Tuesdays.

Gimme Gimme said...

It must have been the basement but looked like a palm tree outside the window.

fmaily said...

Who was in her family box.
They showed a guy..

Jacsamic said...

So, here I sit, having bounced around the different sites to get a read on what happens before I can see the show (CA)....loved the 'shopping cart' image...then, I hop back here and there. it. is. a. shopping. cart.

Still laughing!!!! Now I know I will watch it....

(I sure hope the children did not see it...they have had enough...and especially the twins who will likely have to hear about it at school....sad, so sad.)

capslock said...

For what it is worth to anyone, the number to dial FOR KATE is 10-800-868-3410. Buzz got the lowest score and his number is 07. I am calling for everyone BUT 10.

Yes, I thought exactly the same thing when I saw it.

Just My Few Canadian Cents said...

Didn't watch DWTS, but my info comes from the posts here which are great.
Didn't Kate say on Leno that she wants to do DWTS because she can't does and loves to laugh at herself. Based on what I've read here about her reaction to the "shopping cart" comment, it doesn't look like she's laughing much. But it appears many in America and Canada are!
I think Jon should do the series next. It would be interesting to see how far he gets in the competition. It would also be interesting to see the public's reaction to him - especially if he said he was doing it for the exact same reason Kate is/was - to support the kids as a single parent.
Interesting that she mentioned her kids on the show. It shows, once again, she is nothing without her eight. Sadly I think she is too far gone to realize this yet.

gherkin said...

I guess Kate didn't have anyone in the audience there? They certainly didn't show anyone. I'm not surprised! Who would it have been? the bodyguard/boyfriend? I'm sure he was lurking around "protecting" Kate.

She reminded me of a big, clompy man trying to dance.

biada_miada said...

Looked more like Tony was dancing with a blow-up doll. Tony would probably scored a little higher had he used a blow-up doll.

Kate was just way too stiff and was trying too hard. She didn't look like she was having fun at all. She was just trying to "prove everyone wrong".

Nice wake-up call for Kate.

Not sure why the judges was hard on Pamela. She did great and she had fun. She didn't use to kid(s) to gain sympathy votes.

shecan'tdance said...

After watching DWTS, Kate was definitely the worst female contestant of the evening. A total score of 16 out of 30. Carrie Ann's "6" was a gift. She couldn't even point her toe and showed no prior dance training. She also made a comment regarding her children being able to sleep after her performance(?).

Ravello said...

Moderators really on the ball, love the picture of the shopping cart. I am laughing so hard, the human shopping cart. I loved Bruno's comments.
This show is going to be such fun, watch the shopping cart crash and burn.
Did you notice she had no one in the audience and no pre dance interviews with friends or family. Obviously she has no friends or family.

Jen said...

They showed her practicing in several places. Basement, NY studio and in LA (hence the palm tree).

capslock said...

Correction: Kate's number is 1-800-868-3410. Personally, I think she (her body, etc.) looked REALLY GOOD. Her dancing was awful. I am hoping she will be the first to go.

Huge Cart O'Boobs said...

Well, that was an awfully BIG shopping cart Tony was pushing around. Seriously, her dress was the most unflattering thing I've ever seen her wear, and that says a lot. She looked like she weighed about 190 in it, at least. Her boobs looked bizarre and added at least 20 lbs to her appearance.

And of course, the gratuitous referral to her children..."my kids can rest easy now." Gotta throw that in there in case anyone forgot that you have EIGHT children. I'm certain that they were up until 10 on a school night because they were so nervous for poor mommy!

PatK said...

Live close-ups on television are not kind to Kate's face. She really did look 10 years older.

I wonder if her wardrobe throughout her time on the show will always be so demure to promote that "mom" image. You just know she's dying to get those girls back out on display.

Lauren H. said...

One thing I noticed was that, while the other couples would give high fives or clutch hands with a couple coming off the stage, Kate never once did such a thing, nor did any other performer attempt to reach out to her. I mean not ONCE (notwithstanding the fake interactions set up between her and Pamela Anderson which were corny as hell).

I thought at first maybe I was reading too much into it, but I saw performer after performer grab the hands of people on EITHER SIDE of Kate and skip Kate, intentionally, it seemed. They didn't try and she didn't offer.
I'm not sure I believe there are people on that show who like her.

When the remark was first made that it looked as if Tony were pushing her around like a shopping cart, you could clearly see Tony squeeze hard on her shoulder/back as if to say "buck up."

Also, while you could frequently see the same performers standing behind the ones being interviewed, I noticed you could rarely if ever see Kate back there. She was almost always completely covered up by someone else's head. I started to think how hard it must be for a narcissist like Kate to have to sit there and watch everyone else perform and clap for them with that HUGE fake frozen smile on her face the whole time. The focus was on her for so short a time.

Did anyone notice the other couples' practice tapes had a lot of funny moments? Or at least light-hearted? None of that with hers. It was all drudgery and her being her usual self, though I'm sure what we saw were the good parts and they cut the really bad stuff, like her losing her shit.

Girlfriend has ZERO personality. I mean compare her to Niecy Nash or even Shannon Doherty. Pamela Anderson. Nicole Sherizidan (sp?)Nothing. She was stiff and boring as HELL. Buzz Aldrin had tons more personality/energy and he's 80,for crying out loud.

Anyway, I doubt she'll make it past the second week. I predict an injury will keep her out before she will let the scores keep her out. Can't injure that colossal pride of hers.

She had no one in the audience, unlike a lot of other dancers. Who would she have, besides her kids? Her bodyguard? LOL. Her parents? Siblings? Ha!!!

Oh and that dress was hideous. It's like they wanted to put her in the most unflattering dress they could.

dancingwithherself said...

Does anyone else think Jon was watching? If my ex was on tv making a complete fool out of themselves I would invite friends over have some munchies and lmao!!

No talent kate for sure said...

Did anyone notice how large her back and waist was? She looked like a super chunk. Maybe she gained 20 pounds and the dress did not help one bit. Would fire the person that picked out the dress. Oh, it was probably Khate.

Mom of 2 Boys said...

The shopping cart comment was great.

My votes will be for Aiden Turner. 1-800-868-3409

Bruno & Len said:
- Three times said she looked nervous
- You have to assume a persona
- You have to assume a character
- You have to learn
- Twice said she looked terrible
- You have to exude something
- You have to enjoy the experience
-Looks like a shopping cart being pushed around
Carrie said:
- I am really impressed
- A sweet vulnerability and a honest way about it
- You have a long way to go
- You have a long way to go.
A total score of 16 for the night.

DISGUSTED said...

She was so terrible, Bruno had to say it twice! "it's true" he says....and "like he's pushing a shopping cart."

She didn't like that slap in the face! And when Carrie Ann said "you;re not a performer or an athlete...." she may as well have added "so I don't know WTF you are doing here!" I know I sure did!

Karma---you gotta love it!!! And you're name is KHATE!

gherkin said...

I think some of the rehearsal shots were from the basement, but others were obviously from another studio.

Pattypanda said...

Must be embarrassing for Kate - she has no family in her life except for her 8 tax deductions. Maybe she'll put Steve in there along w/ one of the Nannies and call them good family friends.

Anonymous said...

I think Kate is jealous of Pam. Did you see the look on Kate's face when Pam did her interview with Brooke? I think Katie Irene was probably taken down a notch or two tonight.

Barbara said...

How could she have a pain anywhere, all she did was walk around out there to the easiest music possible. She looked ridiculous. And the raw hatred on her face when the judge said she looked like a shopping cart being pushed around, priceless.

maggie said...

I would vote for Buzz or Aiden. Go to the website and you get 11 votes. And vote on the phone and get the same number of votes. I get just hitting the re-dail number for Buzz until the recording saying you have no more votes.
Buzz's number is 1-800-868-3407

Sam said...

I just used both cell phones to call in for all the low scorers except for Khate.

P.S. B.M. is out in force on twitter, it's AskB_M_ spelled out if anyone wants to see her jibberish.

I am retweeting EVERY Kate Gosselin is a Shopping Cart Tweet I see. I also tweeted about the Evil Wonky Eye she gave Bruno for calling her that.

susan said...

Hippie Chick said...
A shopping cart!! Hahahaha!!!

It was worth watching her flap her ugly man-hands around just to hear this comment! I wonder if Bruno watched an episode or 2 of J&K+8? Did anyone else hear some enthusiastic cheering in the audience after Bruno's critique?

moo said...

And SHE LIED LIED LIED about not having a boob job! Those girls were huge tonight. Really huge. I'm tawlkin' 500cc huge.
_____________
Not sure what she did or didnt, but that aint what god gave her...

PJ's momma said...

I have never seen DWTS in my life, but I came home after a long day, turned on the TV, and there was the last 20 minutes, so I saw her dance and accept criticism (HILARIOUS criticism) and receive low scores. The choice of song was priceless, "She takes care of herself, she can do as she wants, she's ahead of her time" among other lyrics in More Than a Woman to Me. A perfect song for her.
Holy cow, did Pam smoke that floor or what? I was very impressed! That guy who called Kate a shopping cart said he couldn't wait until next Monday for more! Priceless!!!
I won't watch again; it was a fluke that I watched at all, but it's tempting when I think of how stupid Kate looked when followed by a performer like Pamela Anderson.

Jen K said...

I threw all my votes to Shannen. She was so emotional about her dad and clearly nervous but I think she did a great job. How sweet were her parents in the audience?

I thought Shannen deserved votes, Buzz of course because he's so sweet, Evan did fantastic and Pamela did surprisingly good. Nicole will get votes no matter what so I didn't worry about her.
