Just read Kate's article in People mag...the dogs are coming back!

Hard to Keep Loving Jon said...

Yep, more smoke and mirrors,,,

Gosh, wouldn't you just love to be a fly on the wall at Jon's abode and hear what he's saying about the dogs?

observer said...

If no one steps in about the kids, I would hope someone, peta would step in for the dogs. Pets are not to be pawned back or used and neglected for pr bull, they are companions and loyal family members. This news really t's me off and why would a breeder that has now been publized agree to this transfer? If this is just pr to get people talking, then they have nothing left except her hair, and soon she'll have a wig cuz there will be nothing left but bangs.

observer said...

also, I don't know if she actually said she was bringing the dogs back because I don't but magazines (because I can't afford them), but if this came out of her mouth and not just her pr team, that's strike 3. She's out. Not just the people that already know, the people that will now find out the history. We love our pets as family members. Whoever thought of this one, should be fired.

Re: The "darn" dogs coming back.

This is clearly nothing more than damage control and is yet another form of abuse to confuse the kids and the animals. I was taught that you can judge a person's character by how they treat animals. She treats those dogs just like she does her kids - like possessions. When the new wears off and she gets tired of taking care of them she will ship them back off again.

German Shepherds are great dogs but they are a working breed, they are not meant to be caged at all period. They patrol and protect. If they had not latched onto the first free expensive breed that was offered to them and done their homework they would have known better.

A little Yorkie, Maltese, any of those companion dogs would have been perfect for the kids. They could snuggle with them and they would give them love and take every step with the kids. You can talk to them and they listen and understand your mood, play ball, learn tricks, etc. It would just turn their little lives around to have a dog like that.

Those German Shepherds should not be returned to a place where they are going to be crated for days on end to the point they are bending the metal bars with their teeth trying to escape (she crowed and cackled about that - so funny to her). It is just inhumane. They should have gone to a forever home long ago.

In their second show, Surviving Sextuplets and Twins, 1 year later, there are 2 scenes that Kate looks really flat in. Ironically, the first one is Jon and Kate go for the initial visit with Dr. Glassman. Kate is in the waiting room before she is seen by the Dr. The second one is when Jon and her return on the day of the surgery. Kate is standing outside with her glasses and a clipboard. She moves the clipboard and turns and gives a perfect shot of her flatness.

Another great 2 photos to compare is the one in her Hawaii wedding dress and in her sundress where she takes the kids to the butterfly museum in season 5. Both dresses have the exact same cut and you can clearly tell she is much, much larger in the dress she wore to the museum.

If someone knows how to put these images side by side that would prove what a lie she is. There is no denying it.

Remember Kate has lost weight in the past year. And she has been on a low fat diet. So losing weight and going on a restricted fat diet would have made Kate lose weight also in her breasts and made her breast smaller. But lo and behold she is much larger in her breasts even after losing all that weight!

KatesDancingHooves said...

Does Kate think by bringing the dogs back that it will fill-in the absence as a mom? Fill the void while she's out grasping at satrdom? As soon as she's booted off DWTS, the dogs will be sent away again, because she hates them. Kate is truly a sick human being.

KatesDancingFlintstoneFeet said...

...she is a failure as a mother, failure as a wife, and even a failure at her "career". Oh,add failure as a daughter, sister, aunt, and human being to that list!
_____________

There was an interview I read once with Naomi Judd, she said "If you fail as a Mother, not much else matters"

That says it all.

Vanessa said...

Ha! Ha! Watched her on Jimmy Kimmel (youtube) and he says to her "You should bring one of the kids on DWTS each night and pretend they're sick." (sympathy votes) And SHE SAYS "Or tell them it's CAREER DAY."

Minka's Tail said...

You really gotta hand it to her. Very few people can actually exploit both sides of the Culture War like she can. I'd be shocked if she doesn't win this contest, even if her dancing stinks.

First she's the dutiful mother and pro-lifer, beyond reproach because she chose not to abort some of her fetuses. All sorts of questions about her motivation were ignored, because who could fault a woman for not having an abortion? Not the Christians whose money she took.

Now, she's the sexy single mama, beyond reproach because who could fault a mother for not focusing on her own needs? Mothers are sexual beings. Shouldn't they all wear dresses that make them look topless, with gems on their nipples? Who would complain, those "prudish born-agains?" Feh, she doesn't need their money anymore. They can watch the Duggars in their long dresses if they don't like it. Everyone knows the best thing you can do for kids is to show them an adult who's living their own life. That's more important than taking care of them or paying attention to them. Doesn't it say that in various women's magazines? Moms shouldn't feel guilty about not being with their kids!

I'm waiting for her public romance "Who says moms can't date?" and her pregnancy. Wonder if it will be "Kate's Miracle Baby--After Years of Infertility, a Gift from Heaven" or "Kate's Agonizing Decision--a stretched and misshapen uterus leads to a heartbreaking choice."

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

Let me also add: Kate was ALSO a failure as a dog owner!

Sheri said...

That's interesting Vanessa,

Isn't Kate always saying how her kids are her career?

With every move Kate makes she continues to prove that conceiving those kids was merely a means to an end...

...an end to her being a person nobody ever heard of.

Those kids have absolutely no chance at anything close to stability, breaks this mother's heart.

Too bad their own mother is oblivious to the damage she's doing.

Riley said...

Joan Rivers was being interviewed and was asked what she thinks about Kate...She says she thinks she is despicable and anyone that has had 8 kids needs to stay at home with them. She really hates Kate.

She is evil said...

Minka, gotta agree that Kate has manipulated both sides to her advantage like no other. I just wonder how? She's not very good at it; just says what fits the situation at the time. She contradicts herself constantly. She's not apologetic or even likable. And she really doesn't feel for those kids like the average mom. I just took a flight and the lady in front if me was so anxious to get off the plane because she hadn't seen her kids in 3 days. It was her first separation from them and she couldn't wait to see them. Isn't that a more appropriate way to feel about your kids? Especially ones so young who really need someone to help feed, dress, bathe them? I don't get how she could stomach the separations.

she is evil said...

Vanessa, I also saw that Kimmel interview and thought Kate showed how dense, concrete, and defensive she is by not getting Jimmy's joke and laughing along with it. The woman has no sense of humor about herself and clearly must know she's not doing right by those kids deep down inside.

Katie711 said...

This is in response to the statement about Khate getting 4500 hits on ROL. Well rest easy.. There is only a handful of people on there that post ALL DAY AND NIGHT. They are obsessed with their beloved Khate and think that it means something if they get a large amt of posts. Its quit sick actually. I went over there to read some if what they talk about and its borderline obsession really. Same people all day and night.

Gimme Gimme said...

I gotta feeling they are coming back because they will soon start shooting the kids again. It clearly was not her idea as she threw away all their hardware in the organizing episode when she was being such a beeitch in the basement and said good riddance.

Observer...

You can read the magazine scans on line. Just type in magazine scans Kate Gosselin and it will give you sites to go to (Preesi is one). And she did say that on one of them and called them "darn" dogs.

NDmomma said...

Kate is in South Bend, Indiana, right now as the keynote speaker at the Women's Expo. Lots of people are posting complaints on the websites of the sponsoring organizations.

Best part? Admission to the whole Expo is $7, but $5 if you bring a donation to a local charity. So you can see nasty Kate blather on about how great she is for $5 and some non-perishable items. She's desperate.

---------------------------
You are absolutely right and we all need to remember these kinds of things said by Kate and previous threads where various behaviors of her toward the dogs were observed here. I can't believe we're going down this road again. I also can't believe how she gets by with just enough borderline behavior that authorities can't intervene with both dogs and kids. I will say it again as I did back then, "...bless the beasts and the children, give them shelter from the storm, keep them warm." Remember that song? I don't know what it's sourced from; maybe it's biblical...but it rings true. The children and pets are vulnerable. These Gosselin people continue to upset me so much.

----------------------------------
You echo my sentiments. Even people who don't have dogs would agree that pets, just like kids, need stability, consistency and a routine. They develop their habits just like people do, which become their comforts. It makes them better behaved. They need to be able to count on their humans. And that doesn't mean breeder to pseudo-owner, kid to nanny to bodyguard or whomever is in that OrphanMansion. There are just 'way too many people in this situation. How would the dogs even know who to take direction from? These are animals, not people. We can't expect so much from them, even though a German Shepherd is one of the most intelligent and sensitive breeds.

I feel so sorry for those children and dogs that it's overly-preoccupying me again (and it's not that I don't have a life; I'm just very concerned for what I observe and read...there's enough info out there which can be pieced together now over time of which to be VERY concerned). There SO needs to be an intervention.

It must be awful for their relatives to have to sit back and not know where or how to step in to comment, help, intercede, etc. I'm sure just when they think maybe things are going to be okay, something more happens to make them want to tear their hair out. A good friend would have sat either of these parents down by now and let 'em have it with real truth. They obviously don't have a good friend. Of course, you have to know how to BE a friend to earn one.

I try not to be a hater of anyone but these Gosselin parents and their continuing, deplorable, public behaviors and comments/quotes are pushing me closer to the hater zone. Why wouldn't they just shut up and disappear rather than cause so many people to dislike and criticize them? How can anybody be so clueless? Did they ever hear of the word, "self-improvement" or "personal growth" and actually try to learn from mistakes and better their lives and that of their children's after so much trauma of divorce and other public humiliations? Who would want their kind of fame? There's a missing link of personal integrity and accountability here. No longer can it be attributed to immaturity, "married too young with too much responsibility too early."

In the old days, the expression would be, "shape up or ship out." Why oh why can't they just ship out? Go start over somewhere, repair your lives; have some dignity. It's pitiful; just pitiful. One thing entirely to pull your grown-up self down, but to involve children and dogs in your bungling as well? I have some words for it but they're not printable on this blog.

I haven't heard too much about Jon in awhile. Maybe he's still trying to get it together. I'll hold out a shred of hope there. I'd love a hero in this heartbreaking story of a disintegrated family.

mommadiane5 said...

Hi all,

re: the dogs coming back. That makes me sick for the poor dogs. Tossed back and forth like inanimate objects. This is going to make a bad situation even worse for the dogs, kids and Kate's pr team. Because, I think Kate will quickly remember why she did not like the dogs in the 1st place. And, give them back again and receive even more criticism.

The dogs are 6 months older, bigger and an intimidating looking breed. Weren't some of the kids afraid of dogs? Aiden, maybe? Dogs sense that. It may not be a good thing for him.....to bring back big, scary looking dogs.

The dogs haven't been around those kids for 6 months, either. What if the kids are hitting the dogs again and one growls or snaps at the kid? Will they have the dog put down because they did not bother to train their dogs or kids? The past 6 months and months before that, should have been spent teaching the kids how to treat animals, especially dogs, in addition to dog school.

I just think putting these dogs back with these kids, who may want to lash out at something, is a bad idea. And, could be catastrophic.

Teryn said...

Kate's idea of "balancing" fame and family is this....

Kate handles the fame part, and the nannies, housekeepers, food delivery people and gardeners handle the family part.

It chaws my behind that she puts out this persona that she does it all....handles it all....and can spin 20 plates in the air at one time with no problem. She doesn't want people knowing she spins 1 and the hired help spins the other 19.

IF I were in her shoes, doing what she is doing, my responses would have been something like this:

"Plastic surgery? Well, yeah. I did. I did it for me because my girls were droopy and deflated. I LOVE it and I'm glad I did it!"

"I am so eternally grateful that I am able to have all the help I get with the kids, meals, housekeeping, etc. The people who help me with these things will never know how much they mean to me and I could not do what I do without them".

I would have a little more respect for her if she would just start fessing up and telling the truth and stop acting like she is superwoman and supermom. She is no better than any other mother out there....and that's a fact Jack! But the "I do it all" act is nauseating.

ncgirl said...

And there's botox and teeth whitening at the Expo. No wonder Kate wanted to go.

Pattypanda said...

From a Tribune Staff Writer - "The mom of eight said her own kids are happy, healthy and in school." How many well adjusted kids are in therapy? She's got the fake hair back in too. http://www.southbendtribune.com/article/20100313/News01/100319765/-1/XML&template=247art
Why is it that she can't even take the twins with her on one of her trips - they're not in school over the weekend. Oh right - she has her "body guard" with her. The twins are old enough to sit in the front row for a few minutes while she "speaks" her BS and untruths.

Ha, that's funny. Never fear, Kate will have her trusty bodyguard close by!!!!

Tami said...

I hope when Jon comes for his visits he does nothing to clean up after those dogs in "her" house. Why the hell should he? Let them trash it. The help can clean it up. She'll have him cleaning up the yard only when he is there and let is be full of dog poop all other times. Unless she gets her desperate paid friends like Jamie or Steve to clean up..

Tami said...

TLC is pathetic. Now they are ripping off the A&E shows Hoarders and Intervention. I guess they are getting tired of compaints about exploiting kids or are realizing the Kate show is going to fail.

Another thing: Why are people so upset about the dogs? She has been doing this to kids since birth and this is just one other thing on her list of rotten qualities. I wish more people (not just on this board) were more upset about the child exploitation and not just the dogs.

gherkin said...

Wow, I just looked at some pics of Kate at the Indiana Women's Expo (I just googled it) and she looks like a big girl! She has on a gray, clingy dress and it does her no favors! Her arms look big and beefy, as well as her legs. Her new extensions look like a hot mess too.

DogMom said...

The dogs have been gone six months and if they come back they may not necessarilly recognize the kids as alphas. That may lead to problems. I've had my dog since he was 8 weeks old (he'll be one next week) and he still tries to be the alpha sometimes (yes he's neutered). All dogs will try to see what they can get away with. Maybe they're going to get smaller more kate friendly dogs!

Jenny said...

It wouldn't tick me off so much if K8 would show up at one of these events once in a while and not expect to be paid a fee. You know, as in giving something back for a change...as if she actually cared about other people. It would actually be refreshing to hear a report such as, "Kate Gosselin is rumored to have paid a visit to some sick children at Hospital ABC today but we can't yet confirm it since she insisted that no cameras be present, saying she just wanted to be an encouragement to the children." You know, giving in secret. (I won't hold my breath.)

Also, re the dogs...I recall that Jon is the one who wanted big dogs while K8 wanted small ones. So it makes me wonder why she would have the two German Shepherds back (as beautiful as they are) since Jon apparently wouldn't have anything to say about it any longer if she decided to get some smaller ones this time around (at least I assume that's the case, I could be wrong). You know, dogs possibly better suited to interacting with 8 active kids (I'm not an expert so not sure...just going by others' comments here), easier to care for, etc. Otherwise, I can't even conclude what the reason would be except they loved those dogs and they would definitely give the kids something to smile about whenever the cameras come swooping down on them. Maybe she realizes that with all those nannies around, she can delegate care of the dogs to them.

I also agree that Aiden seemed fearful of them at one point...I think it was just their sheer size compared to his. I just think it's a miracle that through all of the drama of the past few years, while the kids have had to deal with lots of emotional stuff, at least they haven't had any huge physical trauma outside of a couple of minor incidents (as I recall anyway.) I just want that to continue to be the case. And too, I can't help but agree also that if the dogs do come back, they can't possibly last long...I mean, what has changed since the last time they were there that would make her think it would work out this time. As usual, it's all beyond me.

CL said...

Anyone catch Chelsea Lately last ngight. her guest, some guy just said that Kate just needs to go away....lol

Nala said...

I suspect the dogs were great fun the first few days they had them.

But i remember Jon said how the kids didnt like how the dogs chewed their toys and jumped on them.

I will bet the novelty of feeding probbaly became a chore for Maddy and Cara...

Plus 2 puppies is different from two adult dogs.

Jenny said...

Oh my gosh...I just saw the expo photos of K8 at ROL. In all the photos I've ever...make that EVER seen...of her, this is the first time she actually appears to be making a genuine effort to be kind to people and give them her attention and a smile. I swear, if I hadn't seen the REAL person she is over the years and how she treats people like doormats, I too would look at these photos and think possibly she has changed. Except...it just happens to coincide with the fact she really needs something from them starting March 22nd so of course she's trying to gain their favor whenever she's out and about between now and then. (sigh) It's either that or she's increased her speaking fee big time but the Expo folks made it contingent that she actually smile and be nice to people.

So many people are going to buy into it and continue to be fooled...but I'm not worried, people are pretty smart and I'm sure it's just a matter of time that she'll slip up and they will figure out for themselves what we all have come to know...that it's all an act.

Exhausted said...

Speaking of the dogs, I was just thinking this: Am I dreaming, or was there an old home video where J&K had cats when they were first married? And Kate said something about getting rid of them?

It just says something about a person who can easily get rid of pets, especially ones who were solidified as part of your life. I know their circumstances changed and they had a lot of kids to take care of, but cats are such easy and loving pets.

I guess that was a red flag from way back when how disposable people, animals, and things were to Kate. If she could press a button and have the kids disappear (and know that there would be no outcry for it), how many of us think Kate would do it? Or, if she could keep them in a closet and only take them out (like dolls) when it's convenient for her, I think that would be right up her alley. "Okay, 4th of July parade is over...back in the closet, puppets."

Sugar Booger said...

I'm a single mother who has no down time... My kids grandparents watch them while I'm working, otherwise they are with me every minute, sometimes even in bed at night... And I wouldn't have it any other way. Kate Gosselin, shut up about your single mom status and go away!

Mona said...

I just got a peek at Kate's new weave. Frankly, it looks just like the old one. It looks like it was put into her head with crochet needles and I bet it won't take more than a week back home before it's in scarecrow mode.

Who thought this hair attachment thing was a good idea?

Calibabydolly said...

Now I read on OMG! that Kate was getting her hair done into a new short bob in NYC for 7 hrs!

They have a picture of her and Tony, the new dancing partner, on the street and her hair is super bleached with no peacocks or extensions. I wonder whos idea that was?

Halo24 said...

We all know good and well that Kate didn't allow the dogs to come back because of the kids.

What breeder sells pups then allows you to return them, then gives back the dogs again?! I know breeders usually accept dogs back, why would they return them to neglectful owners?

Kate is trying to save face. You can bet that during DWTS she'll bring up some cutesy story about the kids.

You can also bet that she'll never touch those dogs (thankfully!!). I'm sure they'll have a paid handler. That or she'll threaten Mady & Cara to do the grunt work of owning a dog.

I am! There's a reason I chose the name I did -- to keep reminding everyone, no matter what I post about, that there are eight little children out there who are being mistreated. I agree with you that THEY are what matters.

IDModo said...

I hope PETA does NOT step in for the dogs, they euthanized 98 % of their rescues last year!When the dogs were first sent away, I think I remember that the breeder said that he would be keeping them for the Gosselins to get at a later date. After seeing Kate's treatment and neglect of the dogs, I am surprised that a reputable breeder would return them to that environment!
Having just lost my sweet fur companion of 12 tears, I am appalled that someone who so obviously despises dogs would be allowed to have them, even if the Nannies will be taking care of them.I hope this is just PR BS.

Katie711 said...

It is SO funny to me that over on another site they really fight tooth and nail to show their devotion to their beloved Kate. There are 10 or so people who have been on ALL night commenting on everything from DWTS to the Dogs to Jon's atty. Heaven forbid someones posts something negative about her they will chew you up and TRY to spit you out. There are one or two very steadfast posters who speak the truth about how horrible she is but the other bitties work hard to say what a so called PERFECT person she is. Can you say delusional??

i thought of something just now and i hope it will not be true. but if kate has been with other men even jon, during the time that she decided to leave jon, what would happen if she got pregnant? do you think that she would terminate the pregnancy? she would most certainity in my opinion do that dasterdly deed so she could be on tv and DWTS. she i so driven to fame and fortune like a moth to a flame! it sickens me that if this is true that i know that she wouldn't let anything stop her from her pursuit of fame and money. I pray to the Lord that she didn't have to go through that.

GSDMom said...

So if the basement is now her dance studio where are they going to put the dogs? Wasn't that their prison before? Maybe they've been away to guard dog school and will live outside with a nice (heated & cooled) kennel. One can dream. The dogs were not around long enough to form any attachments and were very young. GSDs are very loyal to their humans so I'm guessing that they've formed an attachment to someone else. If they were raised in a kennel at the breeder's they may not form any attachments as they'll have formed their own pack. I hope that it's all a PR stunt and the GSD will stay where they are.

An interesting comment from a site called "CMR":

2 Responses to “Hoosier Women Not Happy to See Kate Gosselin At Women’s Expo”
Laura on March 13th, 2010 6:08 pm
The comments are bad because there is a small but volatile group of women who search the internet for every article about Kate Gosselin they can find, and tear her to shreds. At most, this group consists of around 40 women. They have started several hate blogs and spend literally HOURS a day discussing their hatred and posting with hundreds of different usernames. If you want to have a look at some of the craziness, Google GWOP blog – “Gosselins WIthout Pity” and you will see what I mean. Be prepared to feel you need a bath after reading this blog, it’s disgusting on so many levels.
IMO most people are either ambivalent about Kate Gosselin, or *shudder* they LIKE her. Unfortunately, it’s the women who make hating their full time jobs who are the most visible on the internet. These are the women who have commented on the newspaper’s website. Check their IP addresses and you will see that they are not local women, and that many, many of “them” are one person with many different usernames.
Rumor has it that there is going to be an expose of these women on a national public affairs program. I for one can’t wait.
dessertgirl on March 13th, 2010 8:35 pm
How much is Kate charging for her autograph nowadays. She used to charge $20 but her makeover and the time it takes her to try to appear beautiful on the outside must cost more.
You can’t judge that 1,000 women came to see Kate. They came for the seminars and FREE MEDICAL TESTS and Kate just happened to be there. I doubt that many of them would have gone out of their way to see Kate.

sillyrabbit said...

I am really not understanding Kate's reasoning for bringing the dogs back to the Konpound.

Wasn't her reason for returning the dogs to the breeder is because SHE did not have the TIME to care for them ? So Kate has MORE TIME and attention to devote to these dogs more so NOW then she did last summer?
Even if the dogs went through extensive obedience training during their time with the breeder, does not mean these dogs will return to the Konpound and maintain their obedience on their own. These dogs will STILL require a consistant routine and continued HANDS ON time and attention. Unless ALL the Gosselin children, through PARENTAL guidance, have been educated and instructed on the proper care and handling of the dogs, I dont see their stay being any more promising then the first time around. Unless like the Gosselin children, a 24 hour service provider has been hired and responsible for the care and upbringing of the dogs.

Jacsamic said...

Not that it makes any difference,but, I cannot believe how bad Katie Irene looks with those extensions in...ages her fifteen years....the 'day' we saw the photos of the 'bob' before the extensions were replaced, I thought she actually looked nice..whomever is producing her is not her friend....

Oh, and bringing those innocent dogs back- wrong, wrong, wrong. Shame on the breeder for allowing it to happen. He should be boycotted.

She is such a continuous liar. In people she says she is constantly cooking 3-4 meals to freeze for while she's away. When has ROL ever had a picture of her doing a large grocery shopping or a trip to Costco. She goes out multiple times to Target, etc. for photo ops. With 8 children, you would think there would be 2 overflowing carts of groceries. Obviously the hired help is doing the majority of the cleaning, cooking, shopping. I doubt Kate has done a single dish in months.

Does any one really believe the kids have actually stepped foot in the dance studio, never mind played w/trucks on it or danced nightly. Has she even been home more than one night since it was installed. I bet she didn't hurry home last night from Indiana to spend a Sunday at home with her children.

I wonder who will be raising Kate's 8 when she is out dancing with the stars? I have not posted a comment in months but upon hearing the news the other week and then seeing her face plastered on every rag mag in the grocery store, I became ill.Kate is a poor excuse for a mother,period.

chronicworld said...

Having been a member a PETA and several animal welfare organizations, I can tell you that this might be the straw that breaks the camel's back for Kate.
Sad to say, but a lot more people get organized and boycott effectively when it comes to animal rights than human rights.
I will get busy contacting dog welfare organizations about the German Shepherds, because this really is a serious issue for the dogs and the kids.
Kate wouldn't think twice about having those dogs put down if they nipped one of the kids, which they are likely to do, considering that the kids have had no training in responsible pet ownership.

Enough already said...

I'd like to know the name of that breeder and report him to the authorities. If he allows those dogs to be returned, he needs his breeding license yanked.

MickeyMcKean said...

I happen to believe that the *only* reason the dogs are coming back is because it was determined by her PR team that she needs to score points with the public in general, and the dog lovers she alienated when she got rid of them dogs in particular.

For the record, as a dog owner of large breed working dogs - rottweilers and boxers - I do not want to see these two dogs return to the Gosselins because it would be the best thing for all concerned.

In any event, I suspect that the reason it will be in the spring when the dogs are return is because Kate wants to do bring back the props ONLY IF she needs to -- if she gets voted off DWTS pretty quickly she may know she is forced to take the dogs back. If she were to win (ya right, like that could really happen) then Kate would tell her PR people that the dogs are not needed because she has fans and she doesn't want the dogs back after all.

Today I was in the grocery store. Whereas I did not see or even look for the People magazine since I did not renew my subscription last year due to their coverage of KG, I did see two other magazines - US and In Touch - that both had KG on the cover and they had same caption "Fame Over Family".

IMHO this just proves that people are seeing her for who and what she is no matter what spin TLC is trying to do with her. See, one cannot go on TV claiming she has no money to pay her bills, then about 2 months later get a $7,000 makeover and now *another* new and improved weave which is more or less like the first one. Generally speaking working America is not stupid and in this economy ... well Kate will soon become the most hated woman in the U.S. because there is no doubt that she is absolutely choosing fame over family.

I just wish the Sheeple could truly see her as the monster she really is. But yet I know you can't fix stupid.

JMO.

Kate may be the one that is 'cooking and freezing'the meals BUT the NANNY is the one RESPONSIBLE for taking the meal out of the freezer, re heating, and serving the eight Gosselin children. Kate certainly talks alot about justfiying the fact that her kids are receiving a 'home cooked' meal as if the obligations and responsibilites of parenting begin , end and are limited to the consumption of food.

Do you think she is hitting Tony yet? I do. Give it another two weeks and he will complaining to his wife about the 'love slaps', big time.

We all know that she hits men while she cackles.

To: Chronic World

THANK YOU! When I heard about the dogs returning to the Gosselin household a few days ago I hoped and prayed that someone on GWoP was a member of PETA or had connections with animal rights welfare groups.

See whereas I was vague about my personal concerns in my post above, you voiced them point blank. The wild card is that you apparently have the required networking background to do something positive.

Bottom Line: Kate and TLC are only thinking about ratings and not what is in the best interest of these two working strong DOGS and eight active CHILDREN. Add the fact that nannies seem to be "in charge" most of the time and this has potential disaster written all over it for all concerned.

Yes, PLEASE GET PETA INVOLVED! We are talking about DOGS and not PROPS!!!!

Again, THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!

Jane in California said...

Kate's PR team must be among the most delusional yet optimistic yet morally bankrupt people around. So you've got a client who is universally reviled, and has been shown repeatedly being cruel, mean, tacky, tasteless, mean, greedy, cruel, thoughtless, and verbally and physically abusive on her own television show.

Among the many callous things she has done is "give" her children two German Shepherd dogs for Christmas one year, only to return them to the breeder less than a year later. Real animal lovers and truly responsible pet owners everywhere know the score. Making those beautiful animals return to this miserable woman's home is not the answer and no one who truly knows and loves dogs is going to be impressed by this.

Kate is a phony through and through. She's despicable, with no redeeming features. More and more people see this to be true. But her PR people are leeches there to earn a paycheck, just like the boobyguard. They'll stick around until the money runs out. As I said, morally bankrupt.

Thank you for your intelligent and reassuring comment. The dogs were a concern for posters on this blog from Day One. I am so glad a knowledgeable person can step up to "speak" for these innocent dogs who deserve to be more than pawns on a chessboard. I am grateful to you for whatever you can do. Keep us posted.

chronicworld said...

I've been doing some research, and PETA doesn't seem to be our best bet, as they have really grown since I was a member. It would take forever to get any kind of response about these dogs.
However, I have found that dog breeders have been vocal about this particular breeder and this situation since the Gosselins adopted Shoka and Nala.
He apparently isn't a member of any
breeder's associations, because nobody could find out who he was.
He may be what they call a 'backyard breeder'. They were saying that no reputable breeder would sell the Gosselins two German Shepherd puppies to begin with.
All those kids just made the whole situation an accident waiting to happen, and the responsible breeders realized this.
Pennsylvania apparently has a very
good Animal Cruelty prosecution record. Any of you who live in PA might want to contact them if the dogs do come back. Maybe a group of you could file a petition.
Maybe we can't help the kids, but we can help the dogs!

i saw the picture of kates new do for DWTS. yes, she does look 15 years older. i'm 47 and she looks older than me and I am sick! her hair looks too big for her head. when the kids are in the audience, she is going to look like their grandmother up on stage dancing in barely there beaded satin creations, just for her. Fame over Family!

Here ya go!!!
From the New York Post online:

Kate Gosselin is being a "total diva" on the set of "Dancing With the Stars" -- snubbing other contestants and behaving frostily to crew members, sources tell Page Six. The recently divorced mom of eight has been rehearsing for the ABC show, which starts its new season March 22. Her icy behavior also persuaded Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir to pull out of talks about being on the show because he didn't want to work alongside Gosselin. A "DWTS" source said, "Kate doesn't want anything to do with other contestants . . . While there's a lot of camaraderie among the crew and other stars including Pamela Anderson, Kate has set herself apart . . . She wants to be queen bee."

I would hope Jon would get his own
house and, when it's his turn, take the kids there. Sorry but I think this whole house sharing is ridiculous. I'm sure they'd argue that it's for the kids' protection and maybe it is I just don't agree.

Speaking of which, anyone know where Jon is when he's not at home? Since the TLC settlement it's AMAZING how the paps have laid off of him. Funny that.

DogLuver said...

Her fellow contestant, Pam Anderson, is a member of PETA and is very active. There should be some interesting interaction between them if Pam gets wind of this.

I remember how Kate put Collin on the laundry room floor because he was a "vomitus boy"....our dog was sick this weekend and yes, he threw up and had the runs. We didn't relegate him to the laundry room nor did we put him outside. We took loving care of him (and made sure that he was drinking) as Kate SHOULD HAVE done with Collin.

Pattypanda said...

There was an interview on the Today Show, saying the rumor is Kate is being a diva and not friendly to the others. They thought Shannon Dougherty was going to be the demanding diva.

Virginia Mom said...

Thanks, NT, for mentioning Z on TV on the other thread. Z is surely talking about GWOP when he writes:

**

TLC said, "Hey America, here is an ideal mom," and thousands of mothers in the audience said, "No she's not." And many of those moms helped educate mainstream critics like me who started out happy to buy into the cable channel's hype.

My focus became the act of deconstructing a media lie, because I believe media should tell us the truth about the world in which we live, not sell us phony bills of goods. Meanwhile, I think many of the moms who blog were interested in deconstructing Kate Gosselin as the ideal of motherhood -- because they lived the reality of it every day of their lives as mothers. We were both taking on the same media lie, perhaps just from two different places -- though I suspect many moms were also just as mad as me about TV and other media creating false idols and ideals in general.

GO, Z!

Bring It On.. said...

An expose on GWOP would not be good for Kate. There are many very intelligent women on here, and 95% of what is said can be backed up w/ video, quotes, etc.

rural mom said...

To worship Kate Gosselin as a mother and provider and superstar, one has to suspend reality and overlook the facts. It is not possible to be a good parent from the road, texting the nannies, being away weeks on end. It is not possible to be a good parent when she is home exercising, tanning, shopping and spending every free minute on her appearance. When I hear it reported she sat in the salon for 20 hours to get the first hair extensions, and has changed them up three times now, I know those children are sorely neglected and I believe reports they are depressed and askinag for Kate a lot. No child will ever understand why his or her mommy chose to work away and plug away at something that doesn't involve them. Kate might scream and threaten and warn them repeatedly that everything she does is for them but truthfully, this is all about her. I feel so badly for her children. And I have no clue why there are women online who keep posting what a lovely person Kate is, how smart, how hard working, etc. You can't admire those qualities in her without acknowledging she sacrificed her parents, siblings, husband, children, friends, neighbours and family dogs in the process. Any friend she had quickly disappears.

Dancing Without Stars said...

I'm not a huge fan of Pamela Anderson or Shannon Doherty, but Kate is sad if she thinks she's a bigger star than they. They're famous for doing things, not for exploiting the birth of their children like Rielle Hunter.

l. Receiving special treatment re practicing as if no one else has a family.
2. Demanding more money because you have to be top of the list.
3. Behaving like a Queen as only you know how!

Way to go Kate, ticking off your other contestants before you even start.

* * *

Exactly. An expose on GWOP is the exact opposite of what TLC and Kate's PR team want. There are literally hours of documented instances of Kate lying, mistreating Jon, mistreating her children, and behaving in a terrible manner. It's all on tape.

It is very frustrating for the sheeple to run up against intelligent determined women (and men) who post here. They muster the same lame arguments over and over, with little variation: "She's got to do what she must to pay for those 8 kids!", "You're just jellus!", "Jon is lazy!", and one of my favorites, "Until you have 8 kids, you have no right to criticize." As if because I have less than 8 kids, I can't understand how motherhood works and the difference between right (loving and nurturing my children) and wrong (placing my sick child on a laundry room floor and then leaving him alone in the dark).

I know right from wrong. And Kate ain't right. That's all folks. So bring it on (although I doubt that expose story is real), if you really dare. Anyone who actually did such an "expose" will find people who can recite chapter and verse to back up claims made here. It would be a spectacular smack down.

Seriously, smart people know better than to mess with parents who are fighting for better protections and safeguards for children.

I saw an interview with Lara Spencer and she said the same thing about she heard rumors Kate wasn't being too friendly on the DWTS set.

Imagine that.

She must really be feeling threatened that these other celebs are going to ruin her chance at staying in the limelight.

Tami said...

I'm confused. When these stupid sheeple are threatening an expose on GWOP, what are they saying? Are they trying to imply it's illegal to blog negatively about someone? If so, they'd better hide because all they do is blab about Jon all day long. It is amusing to think they believe someone would be scared of the FBI investigating this blog. If they want, I will provide my full name and address. I really don't care..

Actually it is the trend with divorces and Judges like this kind of arrangement anytime it will realistically work. Numerous studies have shown that young children do far better consistently being in their own environment rather than schlepping back and forth. I think that this arrangement is one of the few things that they are doing right.

Vanessa said...

Apparently she's behaving like a Diva with all the other contestants on DWTS. They thought Shannon was going to be the one to give them grief. BIG surprise that she CANNOT (hee hee) show any comraderie with the others.

NT said...

On ROL it states that Kate got home late Saturday nite and Tony was at her house very early Sunday morning to rehearse and of course she made a delivery man out of him as he came with her starbucks in a tray. Can't she make coffee at home?

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

This is good news. For once people who are not restricted by a confidentiality agreement can speak out. People who are mainstream celebrities are talking. These are the people that Kate wants to become and she doesn't interact with them (snubs them). Keep it up and she will do herself in with her diva attitude. The attention is now on her, just like she always wanted. Now the question is how are the TLC/PR people going to control the media and real celebrities from telling it how they see it.

dorothy grimes said...

If anyone is interested I have posted at Z on TV blog. I have put pictures up of Kate's boobs before and after surgery. The difference is staggering. they were saggy and baggy before. Now they are huge. No breast enlargement my arse! If I know anything I know my boobies.

Thanks 1momski for the before and after. I agree she has some big ones now! It is really amazing to see the difference from last year. Those tatas are huge. I wonder when she had them done? Anybody do a time study?

Laurie said...

I'm sure she does have her diva attitude because she feels she is better than everyone, but maybe it's not a case of kate snubbing the "stars" but rather a case of TLC keeping her away from them. She's a loose cannon and doesn't know when to keep her mouth shut - hence Steve. Why else would she need her keeper to go everywhere with her? We all know that in the Vanity Fair article he said (jokingly) that he was there to protect the public from kate. We've often speculated about this and I'm betting that that's the absolute truth. I'm thinking that all this "special treatment" is to keep her away from people who aren't bound by the gag orders and "confidentiality agreements" that TLC workers are bound by. I'd also bet that TLC is picking up the tab on all the special accommodations. I'm sure that kate would rather be hob-nobing with the stars in LA rather than being shut away in the basement. And, don't get me started on the dogs!!!

DR SNOW said...

TLC is having a one hr special with a set of quints ( and amybe an older sibling) tomorrow.
I guess the call for HOM families on their website came through.

I don't see anything wrong with an annual one hr special-that is a true documentary and,you get some cash and the "fun" of being on tv.

But you have to stop right there!

A true documentary will should the reality of multiples- you know the parts where the kids are NOT lined up in a row in matching outfits at an all expenses paid trip to an amusment park .

You know, the part where some die, or some are delayed, sick,blind require medical or daily care for the rest of their lives.I read in a good house keeping mag where the mom died soon after having quads.

There is a non glamourous side to fertiltiy med and multiples and care should be taken to show a well balanced account of the situation.

thatswhatshesaid said...

I wonder when she had them done? Anybody do a time study?

My guess is she had them done some time late last spring/early summer just prior to her book tour. There are several photos of Kate during her book tour where she is wearing 'boxy' fitting jackets, IMO in an attempt to 'hide' her post surgery swollen breasts. Kate's newly enhanced breast reveal was the bikini bod revenge trip to NC.

See now, I took that as the FBI person doesn't like Kate or how she treats the kids, either, and is a fan of GWOP. No worries. :)

Insider said...

KatyKat is correct. Anyone reporting GWoP to the FBI is highly likely to have their report routed to a regular reader and possibly even commenter here. :)

momof3kidsand3dogs said...

I believe (or, or least, hope) that DWTS may finally be Kate's undoing. I just don't see her interacting with true celebrities on a regular basis. Especially, when she isn't the star of the show. This is an ensemble show and these other people are far more interesting than Kate. They have accomplished far more in their lives and are known for more than just being a so called "super-mom" or "super-dad". She is up against an Olympic gold medalist, the second person to ever set foot on the moon, a famous athlete, etc. She probably isn't well liked by the cast. She probably keeps her distance because she in not capable of carrying on an intelligent conversation. She is way out of her league and I think this will become very clear very early in the show. Of course, this could be all wishful thinking...

Tami said...

RE: Insider and the info about the FBI agent being a reader. Is it just me or did this just sound like someone shooting down the fact that the FBI would actually go after anyone posting? It did not sound like any kind of threat to me, but some are taking it as that.

Snerk said...

Tami, I think you're right. I think Insider is laughing at the silly twits who think the FBI is interested in a blog about someone who goes around on reality shows. Insider sounds like he/she is saying someone is already here for their own reasons and joining in the fun so if there were some problem, they'd have piped up long before now.

Pooh bear said...

Random thought- remember movie night in the old house. What killed me was that kate said she tried to fall asleep as soon a possible- does anyone else remember that.
Sheesh, what about interacting with the kids and discussing the contents or lessons of the movie

silimom said...

From E Online - Kate's Really Nice

Some "source" claims Kate ISN'T behaving like a diva, in fact they were pleasantly surprised by how nice she was blah blah.

The part I noticed was they claimed that Jon will be caring for the kids when she's in LA. Hope it's true.

Donna said...

George Lopez just called out Kate Gosselin on his late night TV show hinting at those rumors that she had diva-like behavior. Shannon Doherty (sp?) was his guest and she seemed very sweet and genuine and when he asked her about kate being all "diva-ish", she just started LAUGHING and had this safe smile on her face. George Lopez just said, "what's her name jane gosselin? the lady with all the kids. I heard she doesn't let people look at her? talk to her? you're from TLC, homegirl!"...something like that. Anyhoo, if you guys have time you should check out that interview on youtube.

Just happily confirms my thoughts that the world really doesn't like kate gosselin... :)

grannyoftwo said...

an expose of GWOP..that is the funniest post EVER Kate..you should do stand-up girl....
and 40 women...yeah right..I am still laughing at that one..that is about the number of paid "friends" TLC has bought for you.....and what about the men on this site?
Oh, I forgot...Queen Kate doesn't count men as people does she.

KatesDancingHooves said...

Remember the look on Kate's face when her & Jom left Toys R Us & he was telling her she treated him like a "frickin dog" ? The look on her face, like she had no clue why he was upset? She has that same look on that recent picture of her & Steve on the street in NYC, where he is wearing the dk bluegrey sweater & she in a dress & sweater, and still had her original extensions in. Maybe she had just done something disturbing & he was reprimanding her(???)

Poor Steve. He looks like a beaten man now too!

I have searched high and low and I cant find that article on the FBI. Can someone please post the link so that I can read it. Im in need of a good laugh.. THANK YOU.

If the FBI is indeed reading this site and then compares it to ROL, it is glaringly obvious who the sick nuts are, and they're not GWOPERS.

A very strategically placed bottle of "HINT" in her hand, name always visible in front. She is probably getting paid for the advertisement...and WHY OH WHY does Tony have to accompany her to the tanning salon?

BarbMae said...

I actually liked her bob and now she has the extensions back? Long hair ages her. Hopefully the dogs will not come back. I don't understand how a responsible breeder would do that. My 20-yr-old son and I were discussing the "new shows" on TLC and he said that if he said how many shows on addicts can people watch. I then told him that Katie Irene is going to be on DWTS. He has never watched it but asked me if the "people" vote for the dancers. I said yes and he said that she will be voted off the first show because she is a beyotch... He! He!

grannyoftwo said...

what will be interesting, even though I will have to hear it because I will not be watching, is all of the stars always claim that they make freinds on the show that will be their friends for a lifetime. I cannot see Kate making friends on this show, because she is not capable of being a friend. She is a narcissist, and they are not able to be a friend to anyone because they have to be the center of attention at all times. Everyone has to bow down to them. I do not see the other "real" stars bowing down to her. I can see them pretending to like her for the show,(after all some of them are actors) but in real-life, seeing through her fake smile and pretense of being friendly and not liking her at all. Her true nature will come through as it always does in the end. She just cannot help herself, because she cannot see past herself.

Mary Beth said...

My post is not a comment, but a "thank you" to all the posters who have written about their experiences and how they have dealt with narcissistic family members.
This blog has opened my eyes and made me realize why my relationship with my mother in law has caused me so much pain for the past 15 years.
I got up the courage to stand up to her and I am happy to report my huband and I are no longer her "victims".

Thank you to all..!(please keep posting!)

Laurie said...

The last time I checked this blog didn't pose any kind of a national security threat. The FBI has more important things to worry about than what a group of people are saying about Kate Gosselin. No one here has ever threatened physical harm to any Gosselin (or sheeple)in any way. Kate and her minions can complain to anyone they want about this blog as that is their right - just as it is our right to post here. Look at some of the political blogs some time. People say far worse about more important people than Kate Gosselin. Does the FBI monitor some blogs? Yes, but not this one my friends. Not this one.

wildflowers said...

I wonder what it would take for Kate to finally realize that the huge majority of people really don't care for her (putting it mildly). I think if somehow it did finally sink in, she would be totally mortified. But I guess with her personality she will never get to that place. Maybe she will realize that she is the one that put herself on that pedistal. If she would only listen to some of the 'gossip' shows. They make fun of her and treat her as a joke. Anyone else would quietly slink away.

Ohio Buckeye said...

Mrs. Gosselin was a Diva In Her Own Driveway. Is it any surprise to anyone that she's a Diva Extraordinaire now that she believes she's rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous, the place she has always believed she deserved?

I'm guessing she was high maintenance even as a little girl. Her parents have my sympathy.

KatesDancingHooves said...

Whoops!! Looks like Tony Dovolani may not have much patience, and a bit of a temper? Can you imagine he & Kate practicing????

I LOVE THIS!!

Anyone else see the pics of Kate in ROL this morning? She "interrupted her dancing practice to play with her kids" outside her Wernersville home. What's up with the purple tank top? Are you kidding me? While the sun is finally shining for the first time in days and the temp is forcasted to hit 60 degrees later today, it is by no stretch of the imagination tank top weather in any part of this area. At least the kids seem to be dressed appropriately in sweat shirts.

Scruffy's Mom said...

From her PR person: “She considers herself a true single mom and she knows other mothers understand what she is going through. ... Kate loves having her hair done and being able to wear expensive clothes that she borrows, but she would trade it all for a small quiet life with the kids.

No, I am a single mom, no support EVER from the father.. I have worked since I was 16 (34 years and counting) and am slowly paying off my house. I work days, weekends, and have paid for everything myself ... all my dental work, doctor bills, clothing bills, hair appointments .. I drive my own car. I pay the car bills ...I buy the food in the house. I buy what my daughter needs. I bought my own dog and trained him myself. I pay for my own vacations, my own entertainment. I cannot afford to have my gut flab chopped off. I cannot afford to have Lasik so I wear glasses. My teeth are the same ones I was born with. My face has wrinkles and blemishes ...

No, Kate, I am a single mom and I cannot relate to you or your situation.

And, you would NEVER trade in your life for a simple, quiet life.

Jane in California said...

Tami - I agree with you. I read the comment about the FBI person being a reader of this blog, as merely saying that someone who works for the FBI also thinks Kate Gosselin is a lousy mom and a phony baloney, and thus is a fan (and reader) of this blog.

Honestly, with all the real threats going on in this country, the FBI has many real, serious problems to focus on. They are not concerned with a blog frequented by intelligent, witty, and discerning women. :)

I just think someone (BM) is wearing her tin foil hat too tight lately.

kate's an idiot said...

I saw a picture of Kate practicing with Tony in People (magazine, not website), and she looks to be unlovely, ungraceful, and inflexible. DWTS will be the first time she has to do anything in public on her merit, no spin, no editing. Either she can dance or not. And by the looks of that picture, she can't.

Katie711 said...

There is a GREAT article in This weeks IN TOUCH.. The article starts off with " MONSTER MOM" as the side title. HOW TRUE HOW TRUE. It goes on to say that a friend claims Zilla has made a fortune off her book deal and speaking and this isnt about the cash its about her chasing fame. She is so hungry to be a star she would do anything( those are my words ) She has hired an acting coach and is claiming to be the next REESE. Now for those of you who fell off your chairs there is more... lol Jon is saying that he feels that if he were away from the kids this long she would go bananas ( (paraphrasing)and he is SO Right. She is SUCH a hypocrite. I will let you guys read the rest.. They talk to a relationship coach and all. Its a GREAT READ.. ENJOY..

rural mom said...

Now Kate's "friends" are tellnig Fox 411 that Kate wants the criticism to stop, that she is broke and struggling to pay the mortgage, working to exhaustion, trying to squeeze time in with her kids... yeah, right. Kate already has the means to live a quiet life at home with the kids away from cameras. Just not that home and certainly not with 5 nannies, a chef, yard crew, etc. And that is where we call bullshit liar on Kate Gosselin. Your children deserve the quiet life you pretend is unattainable. Too bad they didn't have parents who truly loved them first and foremost. Now go collect your latest speaking engagement fee or advertiser fee or TLC pay cheque or ABC pay cheque and keep on whining about your poverty.

Dancing with the Stars, "stars" trapped on plane for 17 hours.
I listened with baited breath to hear if K8 was one of them One woman was escorted off the plane after suffering a "panic attack". I thought of K8 and remember the trip to Colorado and her screaming an hollering. I always wondered if that airline ever allowed her to fly their airplanes again. However I am assuming K8 was not on that plane. I could just her her "I'm a STAR, GET ME OUT OF HERE" "Yes Ma'am, but we are 30,000 feet above terra firma. Right this way"

ihatefrogstoo said...

I read Kate's PR machine's blah, blah, blah for the day. She has to work to make the mortgage payment and pay the bills, etc. The PR people and Kate don't realize how stupid that sounds do they? It's all Kate's fault that she even has a mortgage payment and she could reduce her bills immensely by not needing staff. Such a ploy for sympathy and being the common single mom. Blech. She could be home and not needing to work if she weren't a vain, materialistic, naricisstic, selfish witch. Properly managed even her share of what they earned properly invested and not wasted would have insured a secure future for her and the kids in a reasonable house with a much more normal expecation of a standard of living.

lmao! this is a hoot! Can you imagine a government agency spending money, tracking people who dislike the way kate has exploited her children, when there are terrorists & a number of movements that are a real problem to the country. Oh, never mind the terrorists, kate Gosselin is America's national treasure we must do all we can to thwart those who disagree with her & refuse to worship at her alter of supreme stupidity & narcissism. What next they're out with Natasha & Boris looking for moose & squirrel? Oh this makes me laugh.

Ohio Buckeye said...

Re: The missing episode demonstrating "K8 Can't Dance":

Apparently when TLC waved their magical transformation wand, creaating Can Do K8, it also gave her dancing ability.

And Tony claims K8 is a "blank canvas"? Is that the same thing as being Clean Slate K8?

Such an incredible pile of b.s.

Dance On, TwinkleToes, K8. We await your graceful galumphing.

HowDareShe said...

Kate was in San Diego with one of the twins,and did not film the entire week, just a few days. I have always suspected it was then that she had her breast augmentation done.

silimom said...

The PR Machine was out in full force today. First, there's this link from Bonnie Fuller on the Huffington Post:http://www.huffingtonpost.com/bonnie-fuller/get-off-the-hate-kate-gos_b_500844.html

Then the requisite pics on Radaronline showing her playing with the kids. A question for Kate - if you are a good mom than why the photo op? Why pander to your detractors? Why does it matter one iota what anyone says about your parenting skills? If you truly feel that your a good mom, then that should be enough. Why the need for public/tabloid validation of that fact? Other stars have been criticized for their parenting and yet have managed to refrain from the very next day presenting themselves with their children to prove everyone wrong.

I'm just saying, Kate, you can't have it both ways. You can't say you don't care what anyone says and then go out of your way to repeatedly prove to the world what a good parent you are, dragging your kids along for the ride.

Clock is Ticking said...

FoxNews is reporting that kate is working hard on DWTS. This is a positive piece FOR Kate. Here's the link http://entertainment.blogs.foxnews.com/2010/03/16/kate-gosselin-to-critics-leave-me-alone/?test=faces

My take is for every story coming out about her diva behavior and poor interaction with DWTS cast mates her PR machine gets busy and get some positive press published immediately. Looks that TLC/PR people are working overtime now.

stupidisasstupiddoes said...

I read Kate's PR machine's blah, blah, blah for the day. She has to work to make the mortgage payment and pay the bills, etc.

Welcome to the REAL world. Millions of people HAVE to WORK to make their mortgage payment and pay the bills. If Kate is so confident that she is doing the RIGHT thing then she needs to stop already with constant justifying herself via the media! Where was Kate's almighty 'work ethic' the years she was reaping hand outs from PaPa Gosselin and the PA tax payers , business community and 'love offerings' from church congregation(s)?

RealityBitesinCA said...

You know Kate, you act like you are the only single mom in the universe. There are plenty of single mothers out there that make this all work without a mansion, freebies, and who actually WORK for a living. You are not famous, you are infamous. Get off of my TV, magazines, internet, etc. You are a reality whore wanna be star and it ain't gonna happen my dear

Daisyjune said...

Regarding Kate's photo op of her "playing with her kids"..talk about a set up shot! First of all, why in the hell is she wearing a sleeveless shirt in PA in MARCH? I live here and the high was 58 degrees---beautiful, yes, but not sleeveless weather.

I"m so tired of her parading around as if she lives in Southern California and this is "natural" for her to where these ridiculous outfits. God, I hate her and am hoping for an epic fail on DWTS. (And furthermore, I hope she trolls this site and reads this.)

Perhaps Steve had the day off and Kate needed someone to carry her purse.

fidosmommy said...

Wouldn't it be hard to dance if you're trying to face the camera every second you're on the dance floor? I fear Kate won't want to be out of face range long enough to spin and twirl.

Even Cyd Charisse (anybody besides me remember her?) had to give the limelight to her partner at least some of the time.

I never thought of Kate as being a large woman in any sense of the word. However, I am trying to picture Tony lifting her up high in the air and spinning. Or Kate
on the floor sliding between his feet and having Tony sweep her back up. I'm having a hard time with it. Problem is, I won't be watching DWTS to see them try. I'll be looking for the weekly
updates on GWoP.

Laurie said...

A few observations:

1. If (and that's a big IF) an expose of GWOP is in the works it will only be something produced by TLC.

2. The bottle that Kate is carrying "Hint" is actually "Hint Of" with whatever natural flavoring is in the water (i.e., Hint Of Grapefruit"). It's actually a very good water (no sweeteners just a "hint of" flavor) and I'd hate to have to give up drinking it if they're using Kate to advertise.

3. The bob Kate was sporting was a wig. It did look better that the mess she's got on her head and maybe they should have tried different wigs on her to see what looked best.

4. My 91 year old MIL only has basic cable so she doesn't get TLC and she doesn't know who Kate is. She does however watch DWTS and tells us all about everyone. I'll be interested to hear what she has to say about Kate.

5. I won't be watching because Monday night is 24 night! I will have to depend on Z to give me all the gorey details.

IDModo said...

I checked out the story at Fox 411 and left a rather scathing (but true) comment on their blog. Wonder if it will be printed? I also tried to see the video on realitytvrave.com, and got the message: "This video contains content from ABC who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds".WTF? I live in Canada, not Lower Slobbovia, and am able to watch ABC television any time I want. I bet they won't block Canadian votes on DWTS!!
Has the whole world gone mad? Katie Irene is not worth all this aggravation...

Just My Few Canadian Cents said...

I found this posting on the message board from the View. It is titled: Kate Gosselin Superstar. Because of this title, it not surprisingly received zero responses. But the title is misleading and the posting's author offers one of the most insightful commentary on Kate and the media circus surrounding her and expresses concern for the children. It's definitely worth a read and so i've copied it for this board. Enjoy.

And here's the posting:

Kate Gossilen is truly a star now, no SuperStar!!!. Her light twinkles in the faux skies of Hollywood working the angles and elbowing after the gilded ring of small screen success. Her claim to fame and major talent? The use of IVF, conception of higher-order multiples and one failed high profile marriage as seen on TV. Now we are to believe that in order to “keep her family fed” to steal a line from The Beverly Hillbillies, she must be about the business of celebrity and stardom. I mean why let all that expensive plastic surgery, designer hair treatment, personal training and publicist staffing go to waste. Of course perhaps if the money had been invested, saved or earmarked to a trust fund for the welfare of the children. Jon & Kate might still be a couple and their show still reigning on TLC but I digress.

Nearly two years ago I began to question the dangers of exploiting higher-order multiples for fun and profit by their parents. I did it in the pages of Twins’ Magazine, America’s #1 magazine for parents of multiples for some 25 years. At the time I was a columnist at Twin’s and had been contacted by several TV and network TV producers regarding my family of 7 kids with quadruplets in the middle and myself the at-home dad and my amazing wife the successful business women and mega-mom. Jon & Kate were at that time darlings of TLC and promoting a book published by Christian publisher Zondervan. Oh yes indeed God was all in their marriage, conception and etcetera, on and on blah, blah, blah.

Needless to say I experienced some pushback and found my articles no longer needed. In less than two months however Jon & Kate imploded and were off the air in about a year. Now I know I did not cause that to happen but what I had pointed out was correct. The real parenting “stars” are the folks in the trenches. The ones, who do the 2am feedings, change the countless diapers; wash the mountains of laundry and acres of bottles, dishes and Sippy cups. These are those that have no nannies, receive no royalties, gain no notoriety nor enter Disney or other resorts for free with film crew in tow.

Now Kate peruses among the “swimming pools and movie stars” as a “THE” working single mom of note. Let me re state that this is just sad and somewhat sick. There is more failure here than star power and failure where it counts the most. In a marriage that is now some type of broken, blended spectacle and curiosity. I understand fully that therefore but by the grace of God and a heap of hillbilly common sense go me and mine. I can say that with all sincerity and credentials. I hope any that employ Ms. Gosselin will take steps to see that the children get the benefits. I also pray that those that have sat in the parenting frontlines and not flinched, faltered or been famed get the kudos for being the real stars some would-be reality SuperStar.

Lauren said...

Today while I was on my lunch break at work there was a People magazine on the table. I was in the room for approximately one hour, and in that time at least eight people were in and out of the room at some point. I found it very interesting that every one of them had some kind of comment to make about Kate. One person said " I can't stand that woman", another one said "Star - what did she do to be called a star? Tell me exactly what kind of talent she has besides having kids!" Not one person had any kind words for her. Nobody showed any interest in reading the article either. I kind of skimmed through it, but it makes me sick to even read about her going on about how she's doing this all for the kids and that she has to think of herself as the sole provider because she can't rely on Jon.
I am a single mom and I sure as heck don't look to her for inspiration. If she wants to know what it's really like to be a single Mom struggling on one income and a small amount of child support, she can take my place for one day.
I just thought that if that small sampling of comments from my co-workers is any indication of how most of America feels about her, she definitely won't last long on DWTS. And probably not be successful in any other type of show that may be in the works for her. People are sick of seeing her face plastered on every magazine

We're having temps here in the mid 60's, with highs possibly hitting 70 by week's end, so if there any any photos of the children outside without jackets, be rest assured, that they will not suffer frostbite!

Do you know why? If you notice the kids are in warmer clothes, she just popped out for a minute's photo shoot and you can bet she popped right back again into the house.
She is such a manipulative diva!!!

Clock is Ticking said...

Random thought....once Jon's TLC contract is done can he talk freely? And, hopefully, tell us what is really going on.

On another note...the best phrase I have seen lately is "The Selling of Kate Gosselin". OMG this is what all media attention is about, Selling Kate. Wouldn't that make a great book title.

she is evil said...

Proof that the pictures of Kate playing with the kids is a staged photo op: she's smiling. Interestingly, she has been photographed lately running errands and playing with Leah and Collin in particular....damage control or a sudden interest in the two kids who she's been photographed abusing in the past? Is EVERYTHING in her life fake, for Pete's sake?

Ok people, I live way outside of the states. Today in the mall i saw 2 copies of 8 little faces for the first time ever.

I forgot to look at the price to compare it to other books in the store

yes i put it back, back facing out

Proof that the pictures of Kate playing with the kids is a staged photo op:

Kate's PR people are pulling the same 'damage control' they pulled last year when Kate was being blasted for being away from home and her EIGHT CHILDREN for months on end shelling her $10 scrap book. Flash back to driveway picnics with Kate sitting on her white plastic throne! Kate's PR is just like the movie Ground Hog Day!

Exhausted said...

Scruffy's Mom said...
From her PR person:
"...but she would trade it all for a small quiet life with the kids."

---
Umm, then why doesn't she? That's what everyone in the media needs to start doing. Asking, "Then why don't you, Kate?" Or, "If you're just a busy mom like everyone else, why have a publicist? Why a bodyguard? Why not turn down something that keeps you away from those precious things that you would give your life for?" More questions like that to start making her (and finally her PR team) squirm.

Exhausted said...

Regarding the photo op with the kids, can you imagine if you were so out of control that you needed to have people (a team of people) strategizing what you should do to make you seem human? How pathetic and sad. "Now, uh, Mary, today you're going to wash your hands so everyone knows you're not filthy. Tomorrow, you're going to pet a stray kitten because people think you hate animals." She just sits there and takes their orders like such a tool. Sad.

winsomeone said...

On Z, there is a video of Kate doing an interview in her dance costume, with Tony at her side. At one point she exclaims that she works 20 hours out of every 24, taking care of her kids, and when she says this, the look of disbelief on his face is priceless! Will anyone ever confront her with her lies?

Kate came to my hometown of South Bend, Indiana to speak at the "Women's Expo". I'm not exactly sure why they chose her to speak, but whatever. I didn't go because I find her to be completely self-serving, but heard that attendance for her segment was very low. Also, a friend of mine who works in the neonatal unit at Memorial Hospital in South Bend, shared that when Kate and her entourage came to visit the neonatal unit, they were asked to wash their hands. Kate was appauled that of this and refused! She and her crew then left...I thought she was alllll about being super-germ-free?!?!?!

KLUTZY KATE DRIVING 'DANCE' PARTNER MAD

Now that tubby, stubby hubby JON’s out of the picture, KATE GOSSELIN’s bossing a new man around – and he hates it!

Insiders report Kate’s “Dancing with the Stars” pro partner TONY DOVOLANI is frustrated, furious and flat-out exhausted trying to teach dance moves to the lead-footed reality TV mom.

“Kate is a klutz! She doesn’t listen and can’t take direction,” Tony told pals. Kate wants to lead, not follow, constantly questions Tony’s choreography, drives him crazy with her bossiness – and worse, she’s totally clumsy and ungraceful.

Set insiders snipe that she’s especially rude and condescending to hair, makeup and wardrobe staffers, who secretly hope her first move on stage will be a pratfall.

Sheri said...

Has anyone else seen the ad for TLC's new show with the latest family with multiples?

I think they have quints as well as a couple of older kids.

Could this be the nail in the coffin for Kate +8 and the reason that TLC is supporting her in getting "work" elsewhere?

K8 is hopelessly K8.
Sadly, SOME things ARE forever...

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

Bottom line: it's the "bottom line."

Your assessment of Kate is dead-on accurate (she's got no talent, other than being a litter-bearing fame-whore); however, all TLC and her handlers care about is how much money the Kate "brand" brings in. And apparently she's generating enough money for them to justify backing her. Or so they thought.

Sadly for TLC and the rest of the Kate bottom-feeder-supporters, I suspect their assessment of Kate's money-making potential was based on the $$$$$ generated by the "JK+8" show. The series was a gold-mine for TLC. The network’s misconception is that people tuned in to the show just to see Kate – when the reality was that people were watching to see the whole family, and how the parents managed with such an alarming number of children. Kate on her own, though? Um, not so interesting. However, TLC has now put all of their proverbial eggs in Kate’s basket (okay, too many jokes possible here, so I’ll just move on), seemingly oblivious to the fact that Kate cannot stand alone without Jon and without the kids. Now they’re doing a pathetic back-peddle, trying to find SOME – ANY – outlet that will make Kate the star they mistakenly assumed she was or could be. THAT is why her PR team is out in force, shoving her image down our throats in any media outlet that will have her, hoping we’ll swallow their BS that Kate is actually a talent in her own right.

I suppose next Monday night will be the proof in the pudding. “Dancing with the Scars.” Poor Tony.

Not Watching Khate/TLC said...

GoPosh

I had this discussion with Hubby last night. I think they may have thought she was going to bring in money - but you have to ask who is she SELLING TOO? It's selling product - magazines, viewership, Juicy Juice, Nestles, Healthtex that makes her viable. And I am not seeing that she has been successful is selling anything - just the opposite in many cases.

Yeah viewership was up - briefly - while her life crashed and burned (always there will be ambulance chasers) but nothing since.

I saw the last People cover, and honestly, I don't see any reason why someone would be interested in buying it due to the cover. Once People starts seeing that a Kate-cover doesn't sell then it will go away.

On DWTS - I don't watch it so whatever, Kate. Reality shows are cheap to make, yet all the networks are losing viewers all the time and they wonder why....

The View - whatever... another show struggling for viewership. Judge Judy continues to beat out Oprah on ratings, and The View women are a bunch of has-beens looking to up their value from D-List. Perfect company for Khate!

NYMomof4 said...

E!Online has a list of "9 Celebrities We're Sick Of." Jon is #1 and Kate is #2! They even beat out Snooki from Jersey Shore.

silimom said...

My husband had a good point. The sheeple say that we're just jealous of Kate and that's why we hate her. He pointed out that people like babymama are just envious of Kate and that's why they love her - because they want to have all the things she has. They covet her house, the time she spends on herself, the nice clothes she and her kids wear, the cars, the new appliances, the nannies/babysitters, all of her THINGS. They covet the image of a perfect mom that was carefully crafted and edited by TLC.

I have to admit to having coveted that image, and not just with Kate. It always seems that there's another mom who has it more together than me and I've compared myself. However, I have to thank Kate for reminding me that appearances can be deceiving and as they say the grass is always greener.

Today while I was on my lunch break at work there was a People magazine on the table. I was in the room for approximately one hour, and in that time at least eight people were in and out of the room at some point. I found it very interesting that every one of them had some kind of comment to make about Kate. One person said " I can't stand that woman", another one said "Star - what did she do to be called a star? Tell me exactly what kind of talent she has besides having kids!" Not one person had any kind words for her. Nobody showed any interest in reading the article either. I kind of skimmed through it, but it makes me sick to even read about her going on about how she's doing this all for the kids and that she has to think of herself as the sole provider because she can't rely on Jon.

You should email this info the People editor. I sure wrote them a nasty comment. Has anyone read the newest issue and saw whether there are Kate comments yet? Or will that come out later? Your last comment, that it said she 'has to think of herself as sole provider' made me think of her View comments. She skated around the issue of whether she gets support. She is trying to spin it creatively and allude that she 'feels' like sole provider even if he is paying out the nose. Even Joy tried to get her to cough up that she is getting paid $$$ but she refused to admit it and just acted like a fool.

Sorry if someone already posted this, but I was just on the Amazon website looking up "borderline personality disorder" (b/c sadly I just found out that someone in my family has it). Anyway, the FIRST BOOK that came up was Khate's new book. So I looked at the "tags" associated with her book, and OMG hilarious! Check it out when you have time, just a few of my faves:

Exploitation
Hypocrite
Narcissistic behavior
Toxic people
Child abuse
Mommy dearest
8 little meal tickets

I'm sure some of you had something to do with this, KUDOS!

LOVED George Lopez's interview with Shannon D. and what he said about Kate. Google it if you haven't seen it yet. He nails her.

silimom said...

Well, lovely - now Kate's going to start comparing herself to Sandra Bullock.

I do not wish Sandra Bullock or her husband ill will, and I pray they can work out their marital issues. On the one hand, it will be nice that they will be dominating the tabs for a while. At the same time, the focus will be off Kate and that means people won't be seeing her for the person she is, which was the one positive that I think was coming out of this whole DWTS gig. Other celebrities don't have non disclosure clauses, and they're not shy about shooting down pretentious wannabes. It's junior high all over again, I think. You have the truly cool kids who get along with everyone and don't care what people think, they're strong well rounded kids. You have the "in" "Queen Bee" kids and the posers or wannabes who want to be with the Queen Bees but just don't quite make the cut. That's Kate in this situation. She's out of her league.

Thank you Jane in Cali...

That parody is the cutest thing I have ever seen. I laughed straight out loud sitting here by myself. Those guys should be on SNL. They are hilarious and must surely have watched every epi as they have her nailed.

I for one miss Jon. He was a disaster just waiting to happen and I am glad that he has been reeled in but geez just look at how he was raised...by Mean Mommie...afterall he was her 9th child. Never had a chance out in the real world. I hope to see him again with the kids and not painted up to the bad guy the way he was before. That is so mean of Kate to continue bashing him after she badgered him into giving her what she wanted--filming the kids again. She probably promised him she would lay off if he did and as soon as the ink dried started right back up again. What a dirtbag.

Don't know if this was posted yet or not but last night the skater Johnny Weir (sp) was on Joy Behar last night, and Joy asked him what is his problem with Kate Gosselin and he told about the time Kate was to appear at a skate benefit in Connecticut. She was late, acted mean to the skaters, was a diva, etc. He does not like her at all and was not afraid to describe what she really acts like. So refreshing to hear the truth about Kate spoken in the open.

Jimmy Kimmel said on his show ( AFTER Kate was on ) that she can't count on her dancing skills to win, so her secret strategy is going to be to nag the other contestants so much that they can't focus.

This is sad. Doesn't Kate realise she's just being passed around talk show to talk show and then the host are all having a a good laugh at her.
GO HOME kate and be a star to the 8people that count!
