While some think that Jon only congratulated Kate and turned down Playgirl because TLC owns him, I'd like to put forth that perhaps he is trying to grow up a bit and become a person of character. Remember, living well is the best revenge.

In any case, it's nice to see him with his kids and to not have to wince everytime his name pops up on a tv news show or website. Now, I hope he heads back to school or gets a job and rebuilds his life.

And I hope too that he is documenting how little Kate is around her children so he can petition the court for more visitation.

Pattypanda said...

If it is true, that Kate won't let Jon be there for extra time when she's not - the next few weekends at least, he should petition the court for extra visits. Even nannys should be supervised by a parent, they are NOT the parent. Seems the kids have smiles on their faces when he is with them and are not in fear of his outbursts. She's hardly with the twins anyway while they are in school and riding the bus 2 hours 5 days a week. It's a pity with spring coming, she's more concerned with herself than getting the kids into Spring activities with their friends, tball, soccer, etc. BTY - she says the kids will be voting for her. Does that mean the 5 year olds now have cell phones and all 8 kids will stay up past 10pm on school nights. She is in Neverland.

AnnaBanana said...

You know, after I calm down from being sick and disgusted with Kate, I have to say that I feel really sorry for her.

Look at the life that she has now: this control freak no longer has any control over any facet of her life. Kate is not involved in her children's lives, no longer has Jon under her thumb, and now doesn't even have control of her own life.

TLC owns her now, and they have planned everything for her months in advance. She clearly didn't want to change her hair, but was forced to do that, for both her book cover and her DWTS participation. (Though with all the resources TLC has, I don't know how she still ends up with tacky hair and tacky outfits. Tacky is as tacky does, I guess, and there's no masking that no matter how hard they try.)

TLC doesn't trust Kate enough for her to do or say anything on her own, so she has to have a bodyguard/handler with her at all times. She can't be trusted to speak publicly without a rehearsed script, and for backup, someone feeding her answers through an earpiece, because apparently she can't even be trusted enough to remember her lines for questions that were already cleared in advance! Now THAT is sad. I don't know if Kate has a shred of dignity in her body to even be insulted by that.

Kate, enjoy being TLC's little puppet. After years of controlling and manipulating others for her personal gain, she is finally getting a taste of her own medicine.

Food For Thought said...

I am reading a really good book right now entitled - No One Would Listen. It is a financial crisis thriller by the author who tried to tell the government about what Bernie Madoff was doing. It's fascinating and hard to believe the breadth of the scam. After many years and benefit of hindsight, the author is heralded as a whistleblower and a hero because he was correct, he saw it, lived it and tried to do something about it. Millions of dollars were lost, many families were financially ruined, suicides occurred and this author had the scam figured out in about 20 minutes but no one that could do anything about it did. Why? Because the money being made outweighed moral convictions.

I look at what has happened to Tiger Woods. I look at how he was packaged for public consumption. We all now know the Tiger Brand was not the Tiger Man.

And then we have the Gosselin Saga, a case where money is being made due to the birthing of multiples. A situation that could have turned out very badly and actually does have high risks.
A network paraded the cute factor of young children to make millions while the children can no longer have anything remotely resembling the right to a private childhood. Their parents sold them out. There were many opportunities for the parents to stop, economize or pull back. They chose none of the above.

People have spoken out against exploitation of children, no one that can do anything does - some have tried -- and we see the BMs and ROLs of the world vilify people for their genuine concern for the children.

The children will know one day that people did speak up on their behalf. We hear one parent's words "I do it all for my children". The children will bear witness if the actual actions they experience back that up or if they are mere words in an attempt to sell the public a new and improved brand.

Hard to Keep Loving Jon said...

Let's face it, Jon made horendous choices once Kate tossed him under the bus. Furthermore, not only were the choices henous, but he couldn't SHUT UP. TLC's gag order was the best thing that happened to him! -- he can no longer make a fool of himself on a regular basis as fodder for ROL.

Those of us who stomached the last few seasons of J&K know what a loving parent he was -- baths, dressing, feeding -- and getting bitched at when he was forced to work on a Saturday.

I truly believe Jon should be allowed to spend more time with the children now that herself is busy/gone. Hopefully, he will petition the court (although I know that's an expensive procedure) to gain more time with his children. Perhaps a smart/kind (NOT publicity seeking family lawyer) would do this for him pro bono. The children deserve a little more love than they're probably getting from mom and nannies. .........and we would have less to complain about :)

Kate Busted For Speeding AGAIN

http://www.tmz.com/2010/03/06/kate-gosselin-speeding-ticket/

I can hear the excuse now.

" I was in a hurry to get home to my kids ".

That's two speeding tickets in 4 months.

Hey, can someone to go DWTS page and see where the message board link is. I saw it there, in the same spot and now it is MIA. I had to do a search. Lo and behold, the threads bashing Kate are gone.

This woman has magical powers, that she now has ABC cast under her spell.

Has anyone seen her sexy dress shot? I swear she looks horrid.

Has anyone kept record of when she has been in PA. I dont believe she has been there, in at least two weeks. Anyone who can prove otherwise? She NEEDS to be called out on that.

Keep keepin on Jon! Don't open your mouth... the ex will bury herself soon enough.

Phyllis said...

Wanda Sykes (comedian) just mentioned Kate on "The Wanda Sykes Show".

Quote: "Kate Gosselin," *long pause as Wanda sighs heavily and takes a swig of her drink* "says that her being on Dancing With The Stars sends her children a message. And I guess that message is 'no matter how repugnant you are as a human being, there's always a reality show that wants you.'"

Shelly said...

Im sick of the reality shows that use kids to make money.

PA Woman said...

I'm in a couple of reality TV discussion groups and a big topic all week has been the lack of "stars" on DWTS. For what it is worth, Kate has not been mentioned once. She really doesn't seem to be on a lot of peoples radar.

Kate is a prune face said...

Dancing With The Stars must be hard up to ask Kate to be on the show. The fan keep saying how pretty she is I saw the pictures on radar online she lookes like an old prune face.

Kate scheduled to appear at the Womens Expo in Sout Bend Indiana March 13 http://www.expoforwomen.org/

Missy said...

Wasn't Kate whining last year that when Jon had the kids he left them with a nanny to go out for the night?? But now it's okay for Kate to leave them with nannies for days/weeks on end?! Why is no one calling her out on this??

amyf said...

Is she TRYING to stay away from home? This is so ridiculous! Remember the days when she said she took the "job" (the show)so she could work from home and be with the kids? I feel SO bad for them. They may end up the most screwed up teenagers ever!

KatesDancingHooves said...

I smell rats: On Radaronline, there are over 1,000 comments pictures of Kate leaving her NYC hotel..WHY???
It is her PR camp posting comments to keep her in the spotlight, why ELSE would anyone comment. There are only about 15-20 comments on all the other posts of with other stars.
When will they realize she is a nobody? She couldn't even get her own (new)show off the ground. DWTS was a fluke, she grasped it....once she is voted off, Im sure we'll never see here again.

Lets look at it this way: who has WON Dancing With The Stars in the past--where are they now? Do we actually ever HEAR of them? Drew Lachey, Kelly Monaco, Emmitt Smith

why is the bodyguard with her? He sure is awfully close for a bodyguard.

Steve holds her arm so she won’t slap any bystanders. Notice the 2 Paparrazi get into the Limo with them??!!! (her PAID p-people..this is proof!) On the 2nd video, her in gray she ignores all the people on each side, like she’s too big a star to look at them!

If ANYONE would need a bodyguard, it’s Tony Dovalani…but he doesn’t have one. Very telling of Kate’s behavior, and that she cannot behave in public.

If the DWTS judges insult her, all she can do is throw a shoe at them, no wooden spoon around. We will start to hear leaks about Kate’s behavior on the set. Remember how she acted at a convention & took over a public restroom to do her make-up & treated everyone around her rudely?

KatesDancingFlintstoneFeet said...

Curious said...
Some time ago I read the article in Salon or VF about Kate and Steve "jokingly" said that he was there to protect the public from Kate.
~~~~~~~~~~~~
You are exactly right! Steve is there constantly now to keep KATE in line--it was no joke. She behaves badly in public. It's documented. Notice Tony Dovolani doesn't even have a bodyguard? Steve won't be allowed near the actual rehearsal/dance floor at DWTS so we will hear of her horrible antics soon enough

When the DWTS story came out only ELizabeth had something good to say about kate, the others we all very negative.

I want to see if they will have the same opinions when she appears on their show.

These kids
-have had everything handed to them on a golden platter
-are taught to live beyond thier means
- are taugh how to toss aside family
-how to speak ill of loved ones on tv
-how to lie
- how shrieking gets you your way
-how to bully and put down the ones you love
-how not to work
- how to manipulate
This coupled with the dysfuncion in their home and the gimme/fat lifestyle the show afforded them can only result as you say a screwed up teen

Laura T said...

Ok so on yahoo Kate says that her kids on hearing she is on DWTS are "shocked and excited"

On that Jimmy show, she says they didnt care and were playing nintendo.

Yah know the truth is always easy to remember

See I look at differently. I think if it was OK for Jon to get a sitter and not let Kate watch the kids on his custody time then Kate has that same right when it's her custody time and she's not there.

There has to be a *standard*. Maybe they actually wrote it into their divorce/custody agreement that way?

Gimme Gimme said...

Funny Elisabeth was the one who first said children don't need to be on TV, period. So she has had a sudden change of heart, I guess. She should watch the show!
Or maybe they should all watch Jibberjabbers believe it or not video on YouTube.

---------------
The reason there are so many comments under Gosselin posts is because there are a bunch of regular posters that use ROL's comment boards to carry on personal conversations. Not to mention the fact that they attack anyone who doesn't suck Kate's butt like they do. If you were to go through all the pages you'd see that legitimate comments on the posted article would be probably 75%-85%.
The regular moronic posters over there need to take their little group of blind & deluded selves offline.

Kate-It'sAllAboutMe said...

Let's face it, Kate does not want Jon to spend time with the kids while she is away, as it reflects badly on her. Jon was with the kids X amount of days... She is using the nannies (yes I said it) to reduce the number of days Jon spends with his kids in an effort to make him look bad, and herself better as always. It could also have to do with distribution of child support, which is determined by who has the children the majority of the time, as well as actual earnings, and based on percentages.

As for her second speeding ticket in 4 months, don't you know, laws DO not apply to her- she is special.

I looked at the comments on DWTS and the majority are negative about Kate. Not doubting that some were deleted.

I am also thinking the dance floor installed in her home is a hoax to avoid negative publicity about spending time with her kids.

maggie said...

This is from MYFOXPHILLY:
To all the people that are saying that Kate ISN'T using her kids in DWTS, please read the below quotes.

PHILADELPHIA - Kate Gosselin has a plan to win “Dancing With The Stars” and it has nothing to with her dancing skills, but with getting her mom fan base to flood phone lines.

“I have a team across the country planning to call in for me. We need every vote we can get,” she told Fox411. “There are patches of people everywhere. Tony’s kids and my kids assure us 11 votes!”

“The most powerful and exciting thing that has come from all the fame and notoriety is the camaraderie with mothers,” Gosselin told Fox. “I feel a uniting of moms everywhere. Moms all do the same job and I get so much from the mothers everywhere. There is so much support.”

Don't all these people have day jobs? Besides practicing for the Olympics (Ohno) I think they all are gainfully employed in some way.
Whether race car driving or working on a soap or playing a sport, they've all got things to do in an average day. Lucrative things that support their families.

Kate simply has a string of things to do when they pop up. Go here to talk to women about her 8 kids a few times (well, mostly the 6 little ones), dance on TV a few times, sit on a panel of women on TV occasionally..... She has no official day job, except the one she seems to be trying to avoid - being a Mom.

BMWoP said...

It' sad to sit back and watch ( via the media ) how Kate's priorities have drastically shifted and everyone can see it but her.

We first saw her as a frazzled mom whose main priority was to take care of her young children. We did see her bully and run over people to do that, but the kids were the priority. Maybe not as enthusiastically as her top priority us now, but they were at one time her main focus.

Then the priorities ever so slowly shifted right before our eyes, to where she is today. Priority numero uno is KATE and KATE'S Celebrity Status! The kids have had to take a bow and get in the backseat. Sometimes the kids are even relegated to the trunk because there's not even room in the backseat for them ( ex. media blitzes are in the front seat, beauty maintenance in the backseat, and the kids are lucky if they are even remembered ).

Then when Kate feels like her top priority ( fame ) is waning or challenged, she whips out the kids and plays house with them as if to say, "See! See! My kids come first!" Then once the supermom comments start rolling in again from the peanut gallery, the celebrity status once again shoves the kids off her "What's Important To Me" list.

The woman is ATE UP right now with attention and press exposure. You can almost see her secretly wishing she wasn't being held back by 8 kids, and in her mind she's probably wishing she never had them.

She's too self absorbed to know that she's where she's at now because of them, and without them not a soul outside Wernersville would know who she is... and she'd be poking people in the rump with a needle and wiping up puke right about now.

I certainly do hope you are right!

I think she has only just begun.

TLC has invested a ton of money into keeping her in the spotlight.

As long as there are people like BM and other Kate-worshippers, even Baba Wawa, we will see her star rise.

We haven't nearly seen the last of this creature. She is on her way up!

I really don't think she thinks this is going to catapult her anywhere or help her in any way. She's being noticed, she's in the media, she's making money -- that's what is important, not that she's going to win or land her own television show because of it. It's for the moment -- to stay in the limelight.

Longtime lurker 1st time poster.
There have been a lot of posters stating the huge amount of income J&k+8 brought to TLC.
The Discovery Network which owns TLC as well as at least 10 other channels posted a worldwide gross income of 3.52bil for 2009. However their net income after all expenses was 552mil.
So this is worldwide and includes all the other channels not just TLC and J&K+8. To verify this info just google Discovery Network.

Shelly said...

I think TLC really under paid Jon&Kate big time. If they get a show back with the kids agin. I dont think it will ever be what it was before. People are sick of these types of show where the parents. Use theyre kids for money gain.

I see it differently. If Jon was going out say, at night after the kids are in bed, for him to get a sitter is perfectly reasonable. That's what most parents do. For Kate to be gone DAYS if not WEEKS on end and only have Nannies there, that is a grave disservice to the kids. It's just Kate being mean and selfish, but what else is new...

Face it Kate. You are really grasping at straws here. People don't give a flip that you're a mom.

In short, she is counting on the sheeple to win DWTS, not her dancing ability. Way to go, Kate. Loving your fan base that you used to hate about now, huh. This is a nationwide/worldwide ?competition and the million sheeple (numbers diminishing) cannot win a competition for you. I am sure the other stars who are actually working their butts off to learn the dances will be glad to hear about your plan to win. I would dare to say if it went like that Pamela Anderson could just kick back and cruise right on through. A woman is measured by her mothering skills whether you like it or not and Pamela has been called a lot of things, but never a bad mother, unlike you my dear.

I was really wondering that about Evan if he was retiring or not from amateur skating. The World's Figure Skating Championship is on at the same time as D.W.T.S. and he is scheduled to tour with Stars on Ice.
Since he won the Olympic Gold Medal perhaps he doesn't want to defend his World Championship status from last year. So yes, he is gainfully employed and not a hasbeen.

Can you imagine the new co-host having to put the mike up to Kate and ask for her reviews on their dancing? First off, Kate doesn't have a command of the English language, is not sure the words and syntax she uses are correct, so we'll see a lot of stuttering and nervous laughter and the "my kids" crutch, and we'll see Tony trying to fill in the blanks and talk over her to hide her stupidity, as he has been doing on recent interviews, and then we'll see the fake smile, fake wave and nervous Flintsone stalk across the stage,with everyone in the audience just dying of embarassment for this graceless cow, who is the most repugnant stupid woman on tv. She doesn't even qualify as a real housewife, she is that dumb. I'd like to see her on dancing with the nurses, then we'd really see how untalented and uneducated Kate is.

As far as K8 winning DTWS I would be shocked.
Unless the show is not planning on coming back there is no way this could be rigged.
As for he recruiting enough "moms" I doubt their are enough out there who haven't figured out her scam. There are far more negative comments than positive exept for the TLC paid for blogs.
Although I wouldn't put it past TLC to hire an army of temps to vote.
Oh well at least they keep people working although it's one job I would never sign up for.

Yet more evidence that Our Little Katie is delusional. Her 'team' is her paid companions, body guards, and PR reps.

And, unless threatened by K8's Big Wooden Spoon, if I were K8, I wouldn't even count on all 8 of her kids' votes.

I agree with Wanda Sykes' assessment that, no matter how repugnant a human being may be, some stupid 'reality' show will still cough up bucks in the hopes of riding the ratings wave. TV is at an all time low in its own standards.

++++++++++++++
You make a very good point here.

I suspect/guess/speculate that the show got way bigger faster than the ,money they were probbaly contracted for.

I suspect that J and K in the beginning were not show business savy (like most of us) and dazzled by treats ( limo here, first class there) thrown at them, probably were taken advantage of a little bit.

I would feel sorry for them, but they could have walked away before things got too far....
It is now obvious that Kate is "owned" by TLC.

My family just spent the entire afternoon helping our son make an edible Seminole Indian Village. We laughed and joked and had a great time.

WHO is doing this w/ the Gosselin kids? WHO is helping w/ big school projects? WHO is chaperoning field trips?

They won't grow up and remember what place their mother came in on DWTS. They won't remember the "love offerings" (presents) she tries to bribe them with when she comes home. They will just remember that she wasn't ever THERE.

Brummygirl said...

“The most powerful and exciting thing that has come from all the fame and notoriety is the camaraderie with mothers,” Gosselin told Fox. “I feel a uniting of moms everywhere. Moms all do the same job and I get so much from the mothers everywhere. There is so much support.”
******************************
They do not have your job description Kate. I would love to find at least one mother who sloughs off as many mothering skills as you do.
Just how many sheeple do you think you have? They cannot stack up to many. More people will be voting for Tony not you.
Give me strength, I am so fed up with this woman.
Gwopers, if she lasts two weeks I will be seeing her, if more, I will be in Europe thank goodness and anything Gosselin will be a distant memory. It will all be over by the time I get back.

Gimme Gimme said...

That was on the Today Show, I think she got mad because they wanted to show footage of the size of her huge entourage. She cussed everybody out and left. She is such a disgusting person.

Notice this is all about Kate and what she gets. Support from other mothers. Fame and notoriety. There is nothing in her words about being an advocate for mothers or supporting mothers.
Not a word. It's all about Kate and how it affects her.

Laurie said...

I may not have the fame and notoriety that kate has but I've got something more rewarding and that is a loving family - the love that I give to my child is given back to me tenfold and that makes me the richest woman on earth! I would not change places with kate for anything.

Sissy said...

If TLC were to hire an army of temps to vote word would leak out. You can't keep something like that a secret.

Susan said...

Perhaps someone's already brought this up so please, forgive me if I am belaboring the obvious but doesn't anyone find it ironic - to the point of being absurd - that the woman who in one breath says that 'she is going to win DWTS' bold blurts in (virtually speaking) the next breath that she knows that she can't dance?

The horse's ass is as the horse's ass does, I reckon. She really will do anything for money; but, with her (ahem) childrens' expenses and her grasping need for all things bigger, better and designer, how far does she really think that a paltry $200 will go?

Dorothy said...

Did anyone else see Kate stating that she has groups of "moms" supporting her by working phone banks to vote for her. And she smirked as she said this. Could she possibly win this way. I have not watched the program and don't know if this allowable???

Gimme Gimme said...

I think that was part of the contention between Jon and TLC in the beginning, that he was thinking they could be paid a lot more and work a lot less and Mean Mommy refused to go against her security blanket with TLC. She loves the perks and the freebies more than the money (she't just not that bright).

TLC should be careful what they wish for, because if they make her a star and she doesn't need them anymore she will kick them to the curb just like she has done everyone else including her own family, husband, friends (all 1 of them--Beth--she got a free bestseller out of her) and yes the kids.

Based on the fact that the entire family is supposedly stalked by paparazzi I would say that the kids haven't left the house as a family unit to go anywhere since filming stopped, other than occasionlly accompanying Kate on her shopping/photo ops by 2s. After Jon took the girls to the movies she decided he was not to leave the property with them. They must surely have cabin fever about now.

I wish someone would recap (along with video) some of her most precious moments with her children so all the newly found "supportive moms" can see what we have known for a long time and see if all moms do indeed do the same things.

Just when I thought she couldn't be more atrocious she starts spewing her plans to win a dance competition when she has the grace of a bull in a china shop.

I will give her the drive and determination as Tony says (translation she can't dance yet) but for all the wrong reasons. It is to become a star at any cost and has nothing to do with her being a mom or any message for her children.

What? said...

K8 used the word "Camaraderie???"

JMHO said...

I think that this media blitz might prove to be her unding. Not only will people be scratching their heads saying "Why all her, what about the other dancers?" but they'll also be asking "if she wants to be home with her kids why is she traveling so much?". I think middle America is really goiong to wonder why she needs a body-guard when she's someone they've never heard of. My sister is a fan of the show and when I asked her what she thought of kate being on she didn't even know who kate was. Devout fans of the show might just vote against her because of the blatent special treatment she's getting. While other's may have gotten the same treatment in the past, they didn't throw it in your face like kate is doing. JMO

Vanessa said...

Apparently "dancing" is one of her biggest fears, along with heights, roller blading, ice skating, skiing...but she conquered some of those fears, so tis is just one more to check off the list.
This is ALL to set an example for her children, that if you put your mind to it, you can do anything! BARF!!
But of course, those kids can't take dance lessons, (gymnastics anyone) get dirty, make their OWN crafts, wear their hair the way they want, choose their own clothes...simple everyday choices that children should be allowed to make. HER way of teaching/setting an example is to be a "star", she gets to have the fun, not her kids!

Not Watching Anything Khate said...

I don't watch DWTS so don't know - perhaps someone could fill me in. What is the likelihood of Khate staying on (if she sucked) because they want to keep her for ratings? I am skeptical that any "voting" show is fair.

Also, this whole Khate storyline of "I'm a bad dancer" I think is to make herself look GOOD when she hits the floor. She wants us amazed at how much better she is vs. what she states. She is obessed and fanatical so I wouldn't be surprised if she could pull out a dance she has pounded into her brain.

ANNA said...

People really shouldn't take things so literally. Kate saying she is going to win DWTS is an example. I seriously doubt Kate really thinks she can or will win. She is just saying it to show she will try her best and hopes to win or at least do well. All, or most anyway, of any contestants on any show say they will win. Otherwise why bother to even participate? Its just a show of confidence.

GiveJontheKids said...

I honestly don't care if Kate is on DWTS or not. It's that programs' choice to cast her.

I do, however, take issue with her not allowing Jon to have the kids extra time while she is away filming, etc. That is just too petty to me. Personally, I'd much rather have my kids be with a loving family member rather than paid help. Usually in most custody agreements, the non-custodial spouse has first refusal if the primary custodial spouse wants to go out/hire a babysitter during their time.

Hi

Just saw tale end of today show where they were talking about POOR KATE. hired 2nd Nanny for the first time they have hired a second Nanny, John has not been filmed at home in a month I think they said.

Kate needs to work to take care of the kids. Plus a whole load of poor kate. Makes me sick people are still believing the crap she spews. I do think she will last a while if not win. I think its all about ratings and they know people will be turniong it to watch.

they see Jon as a bad father.. I like to know How Jon is surpose to get a job when TLC will not allow him to get one.


Kate remember made him quit his job to stay home to take care of the kids because she was always to tired.

Rose said...

I haven't seen much talk on this thread about Kate's upcoming book, entitled "I Just Want You to Know...Letters to My Kids..." blah blah blah. Oh, there is a heck of a lot that Kate's children should know, but I doubt her "reflections" will be anything of substance...just her babbling on and on about what a good, consistent mother she thinks she is, and how Jon is the evil monster. I can just see it now, written by someone else, but still bearing her name as the author: "Kids, I just want you to know...I did everything I could to be the perfect mommy, and I succeeded. It's Daddy who ruined your lives, not me. But don't blame him...nobody can be as perfect and as right as me."

Merrilee said...

Yet more evidence that Our Little Katie is delusional. Her 'team' is her paid companions, body guards, and PR reps.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I wish that were true.

There are followers of Kate who worship the ground she walks on.

An adult woman was at some sort of appearance and this woman had almost grown enough hair for that flap Kate used to hide her eyes behind, and she was absolutely giddy just to be in the same room with Kate.

She was short of breath and absolutely oozing with admiration for Kate.
Kate absolutely has some sort of charisma that draws some folks into her little circle. They worship the ground she walks on.

We saw Barbara Walters fall into her snare when she was one on one with Kate. "She will be a STAR," Barbara was quoted as saying.

Yep, there are those who are in her grasp and those are the scary fans that will never, ever see her true side.

Many people with Kate's personality type are able to gather some very devoted followers.

Well that was a report of one unnamed individual and the network and Meredith Viera said it didn't happen. So there may be no youtube because it may not have been true. Or it may have happened but the person telling the story could end up in big trouble with NBC and be blacklisted from working in television.

CarolS461 said...

I tried posting a comment in another section that has been disabled by the admin. So, I'll post it here.

I was just thinking about how Kate would do on "Wife Swap." Wouldn't that be fun to watch? It would be fun to watch her have to get up, make breakfast, get kids ready for school, clean up her own house, then head out to the barn to scoop poop, milk cows, etc, arguing with a spouse that thinks she needs to contribute to the "dirty work." That would be a hoot to watch! They should also put her in a family who likes to ice skate indoors.

Susan said...

Anna said...

"People really shouldn't take things so literally."

I think there's plenty of evidence to be literal with regard to Kate's statements concerning a potential win on DWTS. Irrespective of who engineered her appearance on the program, Ms. Gosselin has displayed more than enough narcissistic behavior to convince those with eyes to see that she really does think she can triumph here, despite the fact that she knows she can't dance. When and if she does fail, she'll (or her handlers will)have designated a fall-guy, someone to blame for her lack of talent again.

And, saddest of all, it's that tendency to narcissistic levels of self-absorption that have blinded her to the fact, oft-stated here, that she has not a modicum control of the Kate Gosselin juggernaut. She's bought and paid for; and will be cast aside like yesterday's newpaper when TLC is done with her.......but that they won't be done with her until we stop watching her caper like the fool she is.

she is evil said...

My ex and I get along fine now, but in the beginning of the separation-divorce, there was lots of anger, bickering and hurt feelings. But never ever would I not want him to be in our kids' lives, never would I dream of someone else watching them if I couldn't (except if we were both tied up, and if you try hard, that doesn't happen much. Not once in 3 years yet). So what gives? It makes Kate look worse to keep those kids from Jon, not Jon, and the most important thing is that it's bad for the kids.

Payson48 said...

Obviously kate is still in charge. Jon is under TLC's thumb and sits around waiting for kate to say he can come over to spend time with the kids and then disappear until she calls again. Even after the contract is up how could he get a job when he is on kates schedule to see the kids? Does he take a sick day from work or vacation days to go see the kids?

Vanessa said...

Poor Kate? Why doesn't the Today Show find other families with multiples and interview them? NOT Octomom, and not the Hayes etc., but a family (there must be a few) who has made it while making TRUE sacrifices, without exploiting their situation, without cutting off ALL help from family/friends, who have kept the same people in their lives, who are gracious and appreciative of ALL they have? Why is it POOR Kate? She's living it up!! She's catered to, pampered and spoiled. She's jetsetting/hobknobbing...she's got nannies even WHEN she's home...what exactly does POOR KATE MEAN???

Doris said...

"Kate absolutely has some sort of charisma that draws some folks into her little circle. They worship the ground she walks on."

This is very true of a uber narcissistic personality. They tend to be very charismatic creatures.

That said...they are completely void of normal human emotional behavior.

What these "worshipers" fail to realize is that they are nothing more than useful idiots to Kate. She sees them as inferior. If one of them EVER questions her, crosses her, or defies her in anyway, they will very quickly know what she is truly like.

You really have to have had first hand dealings with a true narcissistic personality to fully understand the depths of their emptiness. It is very difficult to wrap your brain around someone who is so selfish and at times downright evil.

Payson48 said...

When kate is off dancing she doesn't want to see Jon and the kids happy,smiling and having fun.Jon enjoys the kids and kate doesn't as we all know. She shoos them away so she can talk to the camera men in the house--it's her face time on camera.....all about kate. The kids seem to annoy her and interrupt her camera time or time on the phone. At least now she isn't yelling JON JON JON all the time!!! No wonder the kids yell,scream and hit...just something mom passed down to them.

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

Doris, THANKS for another excellent description of a narcissist. I love your 'depths of their emptiness' descriptor - it is absolutely accurate.

And to those lucky enough not to have ever dealt intimately with a narcissist, these descriptions probably seem far fetched. I know in my more naive days (before crossing paths with a Kate-like person), I would never have believed it was humanly possible to be so emotionally shallow, but I learned through painful experience that your narcissism description is exactly on target.

This is why I feel so badly for the Gosselin kids - it will take them YEARS to even begin to comprehend the waters they have been swimming against their entire lives, stuck in The Raging Sea of K8.

Thank you for enlightening at least this little corner of the world about narcissism and the pain it causes. Extreme narcissists like K8 Gosselin are TOXIC to all living creatures.

Jsut My Few Canadian Cents said...

I wonder how TMZ learned about Kate's speeding tickets/violations? It appears that Kate doesn't have too many fans in that deparment or else the information would not have been leaked. The tickets don't bode well for her "supermom" image TLC is trying to spin. Her image will also take a beating if Jon gets the kids while she's taping DWTS.
And I wonder if the sales of her new book or her new show will be adversely affected if she is booted off first or early on. I don't watch DWTS, but if she is the first or second to go, isn't that a screaming indictment that the public isn't enamored with her?

I used to be caught up in the Kate hype stuff but I finally let common sense back into my life. I tend to stick to conservative news. I don't read TMZ or radar or any of the gossip stuff which includes magazines. I do not watch network television. Guess what? I absolutely have not watched TLC or Discover or any of those garbage networks. I never see the Gosselins. I don't want to see the Gosselins. I could care less about them or any other celebrity for that matter. If people did not watch it or click onto the websites or buy the magaines there would be no opportunistic idiots like the Gosselins....It's that simple.

"Are you sure about that? If memory serves me, he was fired from his job because (according to his employer) he was shopping the kids and doing hiw own work on company time. After they found out that they could make millions as television stars, they both decided, "why work?" "

As I recall, he was fired for that on the job he had when she was pregnant with the tups. Then he found some other job, which we saw him go to in the first couple of seasons. But when Kate started doing her book tour, she got him to quit his job and be a SAHD so she could travel. The money they were making from the book, the show, and the love offerings apparently allowed them to afford for Jon to not work other than the show and taking care of the kids.

luvthegrands said...

When I stated TLC would hire an army of temps I probably should have said they will add more interns or pay the existing interns o/t to man the phone banks. After all I think it's the interns who post a lot of the sheeple comments on ROL.
But if she does win I believe DWTS will be off the air.
For all of the seasons they've been on the final two contestants were usually the best of the lot.

*******

That was the job with the cabinet place he was fired from while Kate was pregnant. Then Jon and Kate lied and said it was because the job didn't want to insure them. His previous boss had to finally speak up and say Jon was fired for searching for freebies while at work instead of working.

I think the job Kate made Jon quit was the one he had while filming the show. I'm not sure if it was the IT job he was offered by PA after the tups were born, or his "job" working for Bob (Beth's husband). It just seems like shortly after the show began, suddenly Kate (or TLC?) needed Jon home all the time.

Lilian Glass is now saying Kate did well on the Kimmel appearance, has developed poise and softer image. Um, no, Kate is still the same stupid vapid awkward no talent klutz who knows she is not a star, she does not belong on tv, and yet takes the training and does her best seal tricks for the treats/paycheque. Kate would jump from an airplane if someone put her up at a 5-star hotel with spa.

She "thinks" all those people who stood in lines at her book signings and the people who went to her Women's Shows and the people who she swindled in church speaking engagments are all going to vote for her and her only. She truly believes these people still worship the ground she walks on. These are the "mom's" she thinks she will get the votes from.

I can only hope all of those people came to their senses after seeing her in person.

I've seen Marie Osmond and Cameron Mathison in person before, but it didn't make me want to vote for them.

LynnieKrantzkamih said...

I think Jon was fired from the first job according to the boss because he was on the internet all the time and not working. The second job he got after the kids were born. It was given to him by the gov. of PA. because they were out begging for nurses. So they gave him a job instead. In one show Kate was seen telling Jon she wanted him to stay home with them. After that he quit the job but I am sure they arranged for TLC to pay him also. After all, how could he quit his job and support the family.

jibberjabbers said...

The story just keeps changing.

1st it was Jon was a cheater who left Kate with 8 kids.

When Kate admitted that their marriage was over on Oct of 2008, the "cheater" thing didn't fit in with the time-line.

So the next best thing was to call him a dead beat who is lazy and doesn't work.

But, those who actually watched the show knows that Jon isn't lazy and the one who did all the major house work, found time to play with his kids, tuck them in, dress them, etc etc. And had a Job.

All Kate did was yell out orders and kept on yelling at Jon to "get her things" while she sat on her lazy azz in the mini bus.

"Jon! I forgot my water bottle"
"Jon! I forgot my cell phone".

Didn't Kate also forget the bday Cake at the tups 5th bday party?

Ohio Buckeye said...

Am I remembering this correctly? During one of the SEASONS of J&K+8, didn't K8 pitch it to Jon on camera that he should work from home saying something about 'so we can all be together more - don't you want to be with us more?' (paraphrase).

So, he supposedly first worked briefly from home for Beth's husband, and then I'm not sure what he allegedly worked on from home, but just about as soon as he agreed to 'be home together more', didn't this exactly & conveniently coincide with when K8 started hitting the road solo BIG TIME, leaving him to play SAHD? So much for the 'being together as a family more'.....

Anyone else remember the details?

Elspeth said...

They said on the show that he was working from home for Bob, Beth's husband. Basically it was a lie to cover for him being there all the time. He flat quit work to be Kate's servant to handle the kids.

Ohio Buckeye said...

@JibberJabbers: "Jon! I forgot my water bottle" Jon! I forgot my cell phone".

Didn't Kate also forget the bday Cake at the tups 5th bday party?"

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

I agree with your observations!

And I really had to wonder WTH Jon dutifully retrieved first her cell and then made a 2nd trip to get the b'day cake instead of telling Ms. Organization, "you forgot it - you can go get it".

Though commendable to love your kids more than you despise your former spouse, there is also such a thing as being another's willing doormat, which is not a good role model for kids at the other end of the spectrum, IMO.

Rose said...

Missy said...

Wasn't Kate whining last year that when Jon had the kids he left them with a nanny to go out for the night?? But now it's okay for Kate to leave them with nannies for days/weeks on end?! Why is no one calling her out on this??
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

This is an excellent question, Missy...and if you ask Kate, TLC, or the "loyal followers," it's because Kate actually has to work, whereas Jon is just the selfish monster who wants to go out partying. You see, when Kate wears skimpy clothes, prances around with her bodyguard, promotes her "books" and spends months on the road, it's all for the kids. Every last bit of it. Don't be fooled by the perks she gets--it's all for them. And that is the exact answer you will get anytime you attempt to call them out on things like this. It's part of the game, the scheme.

fidosmommy said...

Of course Kate worked around the house.

When she was interviewing maids, she said she got down on her hands and knees 3 times a day to clean the kitchen floor (although all we actually saw her do was sweep it when the little kids weren't sweeping it for her) and she scrubbed spots on laundry once when she wasn't shreiking about the washer leaking on the laundry room floor.

And she cooked Ol' Grandma soup once and she packed lunches a few times. And she made Monkey Munch one time when she didn't have all the ingredients on hand.

Whew. I'm exhausted just thinking about all Kate did.

Whatever was left for Jon to do?

Pa Mom Knows said...

"It just seems like shortly after the show began, suddenly Kate (or TLC?) needed Jon home all the time."

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

I don't believe it was because she needed him home all the time. I think they both realized that TLC would pay him (them) more than either one of them could ever make by working. Therefore, why work? The show WAS their job.

Jon said it was "decided for him" to leave the IT job. This was right before Katan went on her book tour and left the kids without so much as a second thought for months at a time.

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

I remember it, but unfortunately I'm not remembering anymore than you did. Though when anyone hears kate say "so we can all be together more", my initial response is to run for your life. I can't imagine spending the entire day, day after day, in the presence of that insufferable, whip cracking succubus, that'd drive even the most sane & sober to become a chronic alcoholic.

Hard to Keep Loving Jon said...

I mentioned last week that she had been groomed to utter fewer "ums, cackles, leg cranks, and generally ignorant comments."

But what I remain unclear about is their custody agreement wherein Jon is NOT allowed to take care of the children when herself is out of town. For a five figured child support payment I would assume he could be allowed more time with the children. Either Jon gave up this right or Kate nailed him to the wall. Wonder if we'll ever know????

silimom said...

This post is confusing to me. Are you talking about the Today Show. And who was saying the above? Aren't their photos of Jon home with the kids in the past month? How does the Today Show know Kate had to hire a 2nd nanny? I would think Kate wouldn't like that fact be known. Please clarify.

*****
Haven't researched this and don't watch the Today show very often. Was this Kathy Lee and Hoda who said this? That would be strange as Kathie Lee made her feelings regarding Kate quite clear after LKL last fall. Also, I agree, Kate wouldn't want the fact that she had just hired a second FT nanny known, as the big criticism I have heard regarding DWTS is how much time she's going to spend away from her kids. There was a lot of damage control over that, with the "I'm dancing in my basement". I think people can forgive her one FT nanny, now that she's divorced, but two? Don't think so.

Dont watch just cause "you HAVE to".I dont care less about kate.Any attention you give her is $$$ good or bad.

I wont watch DWTS (never have) I wont watch you-tube just to see kate mess up...

No attention is the best thing you could ever do.Writing shows only fuel the attention...Again raitings are all that matters...They dont care that you watch DWTS in hopes that kate fails...they dont hope you watch the view cause you really like kate...ALL THAT MATTERS IS RAITINGS...YOU WATCH AND THEY WIN!!!

Kate makes me ill..I dont watch AND wont watch anything shes on hoping to see her fail.
I gave up watching kate after I figured out she was an abuser...she has ABUSED her husband,her children, and the dogs.

Gimme Gimme said...

Jon wouln't have had the decision-making power in that household to quit his job on his own. My feeling is that she whined to TLC because she wanted him to stay home and help (translation do all the work) with the kids and they made the arrangements for him to quit his job. They covered this by saying that he would work from home even though his computer was in the closet. That just fell from the wayside after awhile as they started traveling all the time.

Kate used to watch the clock for Jon to get home. I remember that one time when he found Joel on the laundry room floor, with a high fever. He got visibly upset about that and picked him up and comforted him and took him to bed.

I think Kate in her warped wisdom thought he was "escaping" by going to work everyday. It would also be kind of senseless to go to work and make $100 a day when they were paid tens of thousands by TLC.

The woman was always crowing about how exhausted she was and look at the pace she is going at now.

JMO.

Gimme Gimme said...

If Kate culdn't handle the kids by herself, how would one nanny be expected to. For 7 day a week round the clock coverage she will probably have to hire more. She has had a series of nannies for a long time just not providing one with a helper. She always had a helper when she was home. My problem is that she hires young girls who couldn't have much experience and they are essentially raising these kids not babysitting.

KatesDancingHooves said...

I wish this video was seen more on the internet right now!! It's the one where, during her book signing, Kate calls her FANS "ridiculous",

Laurie said...

Let's face it, Kate is desperate for anything she can get. She needs/wants the FAME and FORTUNE. While the paycheck looks big it won't go far. Taxes will be taken out and the rest will be used to pay her bills. Mortgage, private school, utilities, cars, etc., etc. Yes, Jon is paying $10K a month but unless that is $10K PER child, it only works out to $1,250 per kid. Alot but still not enough to maintain her lifestyle. The advance she got on the book has probably already been spent and she won't make any more until that advance is paid back. She doesn't exactly have "F" you money - which is what she desperately wants. As soon as the paycheck comes in, it goes right back out. She is most likely living paycheck-to-paycheck just on a grander scale than most. So when she says she has to work, she does....I just wish she'd do it somewhere where she wasn't in our faces all the time! The one perk she's got with this DWTS gig is that she doesn't have to put any money away for the kids - it's hers ALL hers!

PA Woman said...

I normally agree with you all, but I have read over and over the arguements for why Kate should not be on DWTS, and I still can't follow them. To me, it is a win/win situation. Kate earns some money, and the kids get a vacation from Kate. Perfect situation in my eyes.

Where I do see a major problem is that Kate will not let Jon be with the kids on "her days" when she is gone. In todays world, two-income families and travel for work are just a reality of life. But, in most families, the parents will schedule so that one parent is in town....happily married or divorced. Kate is just selfish for not allowing Jon to be there. It would be the best in the world for Jon and the kids.

Jon should file a complaint with the court. He may not win; however, he would get the situation on the record. I'm concerned that with some of the things that occured in the past, such as bring a gun onto the property have resulted at least in a written court record reflecting poorly on Jon when in reality he is clearly the better parent (although far from perfect).

marce said...

Many children who are emotionally abused during their childhood, seek out the approval of that parent. While Jon is most definitely the better parent, more loving and nurturing ,he is a weak man. he should be coming forward now, and telling the media what this women really is like, as a person, and mother. Forget any agreement he might of signed, because this is about the children, and you can get any child advocate lawyer to void these contracts, that i think he signed.. No matter how much Kate or TLC likes to spin the facts, real mothers can see right thru her, and always could. We have been appalled at the way she has treated those children , and her husband., and if any of us ever did half the things she did to those children, child services would be knocking on hour door... Keeping sick children on a cold hard floor, Pinching a child on nationwide televison, what does she do in private.. Having a large wood spoon in the car door. Drive up to your kids school with that, you will be asked question.. Big stars, with talents, come and go, she will also. There is no reason for STEVE to be with her all the time ,except that he is there to keep her away from having contact with people, and personally i think drinking. I have know many people who always have that coffee cup in there hands. I did wonder why someone like Barbara Walters would be on her side, then it hit me. This women started in this business when women were suppose to be homemakers (hate that word), she is not the maternal type, which is fine, except that she had talent, something to offer and she succeeded. Kate Gosselin has nothing, no talent to offer, the screwed up idea she should be a star.. She will never get what she wants, she is talent less, and not a nice person, and in the end , will be bitter unhappy women (with lots of money), but not the fame she thinks she should have.. To me, these kids are lost, luckily there are a lot of them to give each other support, but as any mother knows , a happy childhood, the best we can do for our children, is more important then all the money in the world,

*****

I remember this too.

I recall thinking that the simple answer to Jon's long drive to Harrisburg every day (leaving by
6:30, home just in time for dinner)
and being away from the family so long on a daily basis would be for the family to move closer to Harrisburg. They had no reason to stay in E-town, since their relationship with their family (except Jodi and Kevin) seemed to be waning anyway and Kate was doing very little work as a nurse at the time. And nurses can find
work ANYWHERE, even part time.

It seemed to serve no real purpose to stay in E-town and gripe that Jon was away too long with the only
decent job he ever had.

We really don't know the true reason Jon left. We were TOLD by Kate that it was so he could stay home more. He might have been fired. We don't know. We may never know unless somebody decides to talk.

Yes, It was Kathie Lee and Hoda. There were two reporters. They were the ones who stated Kate hired a second nanny. Yes, I heard it also.

I am so tired of seeing Khate's mug all over tv and DWTS hasn't even started yet. I am horrified that she would rather see her kids with TLC's HIRED HELP instead of their father. She is so selfish. When Tom Bergeron ( sp ) interviews her after the dance ( and lets hope its ONLY one ) all were are going to hear is Umm Umm Umm. I'm doing this for my kids. Yea ok right. That's why you are away from your kids for extended periods of time.

Did anyone see/hear Joan Rivers bash the heck out of Khatezilla last night on tv? It was great.

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

I really hope not Brummy, but I imagine that kate thinks that nothing is out of her greedy grasp. She probably sees herself on that level already & pictures just how she's going to walk up that red carpet & what she'll say for her Oscar speech. I honestly don't know if Hollywood is that crazy, I'd like to say no, but something tells me to wait & watch.

The way they chose their stars has slid steadily downhill. For the most part, yes, they still must have talent, but many are not the calibre of what stars used to be. So a part of me wonders if things will slide downhill enough for kate to somehow end up there. Of course I also find myself wondering about the particular individual or individuals who are putting kate in these places, who they are, what their connections are & how far reaching are they in Hollywood? I know actual names probably not be known until Mady writes her book, but there are a few unknowns in this.

If kate wins DWTS then I will think that there is a good chance she'll make it to Hollywood. Whether she'll stay or not is a completely different story. I mean sooner or later, she'll have to prove herself on her own merit, won't she? I mean these people putting her in these places can't bribe entire movie audiences or pay enough employees to go see the movies & make them a success. This all seems a madness to me, you'd think they'd have chosen someone the world could fall in love with or at least likeable to try & make into their star.

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

It's a good article & very enlightening, but to be honest, I think every child star & child of a star could tell kate the pitfalls to her face & she wouldn't pay them any mind at all, her desires & narcissism will always win out. I don't believe she gives a flying fig about those kids. I think the people here at GWOP care for the 8 more than their own mother does & yeah, that seriously sucks for them. Such is the life when you have a narcissist for a parent, you always come after them in everything & their life, which may sometime include you, is far more important than your own will ever be in their eyes. If they have a golden child which they tend to & you're not it, then you're even further down the list when they can be bothered to think about you.

She's come undone said...

A couple of observations: I too scanned those ROL comments and found them to be stupid, childlike, and mostly the same posters. The thing they love the most besides Kate is bashing on GWOPers. Their comments are ignorant and shallow.

On the DWTS post someone wrote that they didn't see anything wrong with Kate putting her children in the audience as other contestants bring their families and the cameras always pan over them so why shouldn't they do the same to Kate's children. This is true. However, other contestants have not turned their children into a circus act. That's the difference.

Isn't she supposed to be on the View on Thursday? They are taking the hair out Wednesday and not putting it back until Thursday so maybe they are trying to explain why she will have short hair for her view appearance?
What I would like them to explain is how she can be considered the primary care-giver/full-time SAHM for her kids when she has seen them, what a few days and now HAS to go back to NY for a long weekend of "work" and hair appointments....she'll be there at least til Friday, maybe Saturday, and if they try to say that Jon is never with the kids again and don't blame Kate for that when she is the one galivanting around I may scream!

Oh no, please do not tell me that Dr. Glass has been sucked in.

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

I wouldn't worry too much about Dr. Glass, Brummy. She's another pseudo-expert who isn't actually trained in the field she claims to be an expert in. Dr. Glass's PhD is in Communication Disorders, and her main area of study was cleft palates. So, basically, her background is on physical facial deformities that obstruct effective communication. A noble field, for sure, but certainly not one that makes you an expert in nonverbal communication, which is a *completely* different field.

As someone with an actual PhD in Interpersonal and Nonverbal Communication, I can say with certainty that Dr. Glass's analyses are unscientific and blatantly inaccurate. Analyzing motives and drawing conclusions about relationships based on a single photo???? I just shake my head.

She's simply another Kate (or Dr. Phil, or John Grey) -- she's managed to build an empire based on a lot of smoke and mirrors. If she's moved over to the Kate-loving camp, so be it. They're cut from the same cloth and they deserve each other.

I have just read a "radaronline" article bout her getting those extensions taken out and then putting new ones in. Shock, OMG, horror.

Phhheewwww, what a relief, I was worried for a second. or 15 hours, however long it takes to put those rat tails in.

Bet those kids are so happy, proud and glad that she is a hard working, example setting, I'm never giving up kinda Mum.

True, he could. But what does talking cr** about your children's mother do for your kids, both in the short and long term? Nothing except to hurt them. And they've been hurt enough. Kudos to Jon for being a "high road taker". Kate may speak the words, but Jon apparently is living them. Granted, this turnabout is fairly recent. Only time will tell if his change sticks. I hope it does. I like Jon and wish him well.

As far as Kate goes, frankly I hope she does well on DWTS and that it leads to other jobs. First, it keeps her happy, which means she'll be nicer to the kids. Second, it keeps her busy and away from the kids, not a bad thing when you're a narcissist. Third, the more money she makes on her own, the easier it will be for Jon to go back to court and ask that the child support be adjusted to reflect the change in circumstances, which allows him the opportunity to rebuild his own life. Not that he shouldn't have to pay child support, but if she's making more money, then that needs to be taken into account.

As for the kids, what Jon needs to do is advocate for his children IN PRIVATE. He needs to be there each and every day he has visitation. He needs to clean up his act, get a job and a house/apartment. The burden of proof is on him to show the courts that he is a capable, stable parent and that the children would be better off with him.

rural mom said...

The PR team, about taking a sneak peak at Kate's dance rehearsals, flipped out and ordered Ted to change her hair prompto in hopes the media will stay focused on the hair and not the hot mess that moves so gracelessly one can only think "Dances with Hooves".

maggie said...

I hope Jon is smart enough to make sure that all of his kids know without a shadow of a doubt that he wants to spend more time with them during Kate's time with DWTS. Kate hiring another nanny was not necessary; it was because Kate was jealous of Jon's spending more with the kids. The kids will remember & resent this time. One day the kids will make it public. Kate will look like the loser for it.

How many hours has Kate spent in the chair and travel time for her new hair extensions in the past 3 months alone. It took 20 hours the first go around and $7,000. Then she went to New York and had them cut. Remember the trip in her mini skirt to Butters. Then the removal and putting them back this week. Is it going to be another $7,000 and another 20 hours?

What an awful statement to her 5 daughters. In just 3 months, excessive money (over $15,000) and overnight trips are necessary when it when it comes to Mommy's hair! Such vanity!

NT said...

Okay, we've seen all the other cast members rehearsing. Not Kate. Now she's having another 2 days of hair work done.8 hours taking them out and 8 hours putting them back in. Is she even taking this seriously or are we getting shafted yet again. We'll watch and she won't rehearse and no matter what happens with the vote she will not leave as long as the ratings are high. I smell a big fish. I'm making myself sick just thinking about this.

Don't usually look at the online photos or Gosselin articles, but boredom tonight took me to some pics of K8 in her DWTS costume.

As long as he's under the gag order, he seems pretty benign. Altho, the children's classmates are liable to read/hear any of these tales.

I'm just sorry not to see him loving the chilren and their reciprocating.

Natalie and Abigail said...

I saw the promos for DWTS - the green screen poses for the opening. I almost never make fun of Kate's appearance because generally, I feel that is petty, but honestly...she looks terrible. That dress is incredibly unflattering and her hair is a mess. Her boobs also look so obviously fake.

It sort-of sounded like she was having a hard time too....hehehehehe

Gimme Gimme said...

I miss Jon too. I don't think TLC realizes how many people enjoyed watching him with the kids. At the rate Mean Mommie is going, they may have to put him back on TV afterall as she seems to be so so busy these days. When does she practice her dancing? I am afraid she is relying too heavily on the "bands" of people lined up, you know all the moms to vote for her and thinks that she does not have to work that hard.

Hey, Posh, THANKS for your opinion about Lilian Glass - I thought I was the only one who sees this chick as bogus. I appreciate your sharing this insight about Ms. Glass, as reading ALL THAT into a glance or a movement always made me wonder about the science behind her assessments.

maggie said...

It was reported that Kate went back home last Friday and her floor had been installed (pictures were on ROL). So, why did Tony meet the kids on Tuesday, 5 days later. Certainly they have been practicing during the past 5 days.

I think Kate did go home on Friday (the photos of her shopping but I bet she returned to LA shortly after. Again, why did Tony meet the kids today -- 5 days after Kate went home? Any thoughts!

Lillian appears on the Nancy Grace show. That should tell you all you need to know about her...a loser. And she has nothing to contribute but to agree with Nancy.

I totally agree with you in most cases, except the kids know the truth.I think she is a emotionally abusive behind close doors to those kids. They are still very young, and if means that the public, that Kate wanted to see her, knows the truth about her, it will stop them from being hurt even more..Jon is a good dad, always has been , but he is a weak man, and always will be, so that means that Kate will be in charge . Like the abusive husband, the family lives thru the abuse, but doesn't want the truth it to get out to family and friends . Kate wanted to be a media darling, that includes having her privacy invaded and truths that you want hidden come out.. If it saves the kids childhood, let Jon spill his guts, and just tell the truth about what kind of mother she really is to the kids .

Eww! Wow she shouldn't be so modest. How she can carry a show, what on those manly shoulders of hers? I still think a quarterback would look more girlie in that dress than she does, they'd definitely move better.

How good she is at carrying a show, oh no, those delusions of grandeur again. I wonder if she hears voices telling her how wonderful she is? The kids carried the last show. The others might also have something to say about kate "carrying" the show, I can't imagine some of them sitting back & letting this Johnny-come-lately take all the credit. kate really is a delusional nut.

Perhaps she took her training in the *Gypsy* tent!! :)

Hey Posh -

Fellow PhD here (different field) - I must say, I've always wondered how a PhD could butcher her spelling and grammar so badly!

Gimme Gimme said...

What kind of mood was Tony in on ET? He hasn't spent that much time around her yet, just wondered if is still stroking her ego as if she needs it. They were all eyes for for another last time I saw them and what did he think of the kids I wonder.

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

I SO agree with you, Kon, and am so glad to see so many others posting comments about Lillian's atrocious spelling and grammar. I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one who cringes every time I read something written by her. I, too, have wondered at how someone with such a lack of command of the English language could ever earn any sort of degree, much less a PhD. In addition, how could someone who is so incredibly inarticulate forge such a succesful career in the media???

My late, dear grandmother would say, "She lives on the sly of God." I'd agree, and add, "She's Kate all over."

Just checking out the pictures of the kids meeting Kate's dance partner. Is 50 degrees really warm enough for the kids to be playing outside without jackets and in shorts? Checked the weather for PA and it's just barely 50. Not quite summer yet.

Tami said...

ROL's writers have horrible grammar as well and they actually make a living off writing.

Tami said...

Seeing Kate in her dress on tv was much more scary and unattractive than the picture. She looks GROSS! I have honestly never seen anyone on that show look so terrible. I am not kidding. The dress is ugly and does not match her skin tone at all (the skin colored inserts). She looks big, bulky and just ugh. Macy Gray was prettier and more graceful looking.

Tami said...

Regarding why Tony is just not meeting the kids, did it say he just met them or that he just took his kids over to play today? Also, if it is the first time, it's probably because she seems to spend all her time in NY these days. Why they practiced there and not a more local studio is beyond me! Doesn't PA have any wood floors??

Okay - what is the world is going on with Kate's weave. Third time's the charm? So it's now up to TLC's Ted Gibson to speak positively about Kate to ROL? He's her new BFF I guess.

I've never had a weave, but I can only imagine the damage being done to Kate's real hair each time a weave is put in, then stripped off, then another glued on, then once again stripped off. Like everything, she overdoes it. Her skin is overtanned, leathery looking and showing early freckling. Now her hair, what's left of it, is no doubt frazzled and full of split ends from over processing and over-weaving.

And what is up with having her boys dressed in shorts and short sleeve polo shirts (still in matching clothes - what a freak Kate is) in early March in PA? I live in northern California and it's still too cold for shorts or short sleeves. I can only imagine what the temps are in PA.

I was watching some old clips on youtube of Sabrina and Mark. Wow, she was/is an amazing dancer, a cute bubbly personality and a real crowd favorite. Kate is a dud and as warm and appealing as cold congealed oatmeal. I don't care how many weaves she gets, even if she's got ten expertly blended colors of straw hair, it won't impress the judges and it won't impress the viewing audience.

Jane in California said...

After reading OhioBuckeye's comment, I had to go to ROL and see some of Kate's pictures for myself. I couldn't help laughing at the five pics of Kate leaving her hotel. That showing of the teeth in what is supposed to pass for a smile, the one shot where she looks seriously annoyed, and of course, body guard Steve, in a very fetching cardigan sweater!

OMG, nothing strikes fear in a stalker more than a man in a grey cardigan sweater! Who knew that at heart, Mr. Grey is really just a fancy pants Mr. Rogers at heart? hee

Canadian Mom said...

If the kids were dressed in *matching* outfits, you can bet a camera was rolling somewhere nearby...

Vanessa said...

OMG! She's giving the "Rachel" hairstyle some competition?
No wonder she has such visions of grandeur! It's not even REAL HAIR PEOPLE!

Ohio Buckeye said...

Jane in California: THANKS for the laugh so early this morning! Your Mr. Rogers Security, Inc. comment made me laughingly choke on my coffee! Thanks for the chuckle!!!

N.E. Psychologist said...

Posh et al.
Thank you so much for your deconstruction of L. Glass. I sampled some of her commentaries and found myself disbelieving her alleged credentials. As for Dr. Phil, his degree in Industrial/Organizational Psychology; a worthy field but it does not train you to diagnose and treat psychological problems. He is not licensed in any state and IMO he is dangerous

I live in ny and the weather was nice ,but not nice enough for summer clothes. My guess of why they are wearing those clothes. These kids are kate's prop's, they have grown, and since they are not being filmed, or getting those free clothes anymore, maybe they didn't rush out to go shopping for matching clothes. Or maybe since we know Kate doesn't do anything with them, like take the time to dress them, she just told the nanny to get them in matches clothes, and these are one the kids picked out. I had twin girls, and i never dressed them alike , except when my mom visited. When you dress twins alike, especially babies, and little one, they receive a lot of attention, they stand out. (i gave my mom that pleasure)....when kate is there , these kids look so unhappy . When there with Jon there always smiling.
I've never been a hugh fan of Pam Anderson, I feel sorry for the mom's who have kids on her son's teams. She might be a real nice person, but, dressing like that to go to kids game, that's just wrong. But she loves her kids, and knows to keep them involved in what they like.. I am hoping she is rude to kate, (backstage of course) ..

She's Desperate said...

Could they be taking out the hair for her one day View appearance just to take the attention off of how she is not the little stay at home mommy she is supposed to be? I mean, if the focus is on her long, $7000 hair extensions, they can't really feel sorry for her, can they? She wanted to show up in her old "brand" hairstyle that people with their head in the sand are familiar with.

Yes. It's been in the high 50s/low 60s and there were lots of kids out everywhere without jackets, and I saw lots of shorts. The sun was warm and there was no wind. Very pleasant for being outdoors without jackets.

rural mom said...

Another child star dead of drug overdose. The sheeple continue praising Kate Gosselin for being an awesome single mother and role model. Do they ever stop to think how she does it all? Seriously, with 24 hours in the day and she reportedly is a best selling author, public speaker, co-host and reality tv star, when does she have the time to eat meals with her kids, help with homework, bathe, read stories and tuck them in? She doesn't. She chose fame over the kids and it doesn't matter if her children are sick with the flu, constipated,anxious, upset, angry or having trouble in school, her focus remains on hair extensions, exercise, nails, tan, clothes and public appearances. She frets about vapid things like "do these heels make me look long and lean?" when her handlers and nannies are pointing out her kids don't see much of her, at all. That is why her family shunned her, they couldn't believe she'd bring 6 babies into this world and then pawn them off onto a reality tv show, for her personal gain. That is what makes Kate such a repugnant human being, and it is why we need to quit clicking on ROL and DWTS and sites like that who hire people to write positive spin stories about Kate so they can feed off her notoriety. The sheeple will only back Kate when it is fashionable to do so, the minute the tide turns they'll also fade away.

Anne said...

Ugh! She's on the cover of People again. Picture of her and Tony with the caption "Why Can't a Mom Have Fun?"

Moms have lots of fun and (shocking to Kate) lots of us have fun WITH our kids. Sad that fun to her only involves camera time.

zoey said...

i have said this before and its still proving true. Every time Kate makes the news, a celebrity dies. =)

Micha said...

Wow, Tony got to meet the famous Gosselin Sextuplets in thier natural habitat. Lucky Tony, I hope he got autographs for his wife and kids.

Of course the tups reaacted to him well. Any little kid would love the attention of an adult- especially these who are probably starved for regular contact with attentive adults. Plus liking/"performing" for Tony and cameras will make mommy happy.

I just read about the 80's tv star Cory something who overdosed and died. Too much fame too quickly sure messes up people. I worry for both the children AND Kate.

Can't See Sheep said...

Interesting, Corey Haim, another child actor, found dead. They said likely accidental overdose. Sorry, but I do have to question if this could be one of the Gosselins in 30 years. It's not like they're being raised by a stable mable.

Has anyone seen the cover of people, with kate on Tony's back and the headline, "Why Can't a Mom Have Fun?" and the Oscars shoved off to the side. Currently I'm revolted into silence I'm sure I'll have plenty to say later. Sorry, couldn't get a good page with it on it.
