Kate is addicted to fame and fortune no matter the cost to her family. It is her drug of choice. I wonder if they'll broach that subject....

Ohio Buckeye said...

IMO, it speaks volumes about Dr. Drew's credibility that he, too, will pretend to be among the sane when having a discussion with K8G.

It's a shame - I used to kinda hope that he was basically honorable, but he's gone WAY down in my estimation, since his show more exploitive of people's very personal problems than edifying.

Pretending K8G is worthy of a relevant conversation about psych issues puts the nail in his coffin for me as far as his credibility.

The list grows.....

Ella's Mum said...

Wonder if when they do the segment on addiction, they will include fame, plastic surgery and a wine box!!

susan said...

Oh goody, two famewhores on one show! Yawn...I think I'll pass.

Anne said...

Hmmm. Will Dr. Drew discuss fame addiction?

I hope everyone who wants Kate to go away does NOT tune in. ABC or anyone else looking at ratings could care less if we're tuning in to see her make a fool of herself. The only thing that will get Kate off our TVs is bad ratings.

I will, of course, read Z on TV's recap!

zoey said...

oh brother.

Sheri said...

Hmmm, do you think maybe they might bring up Kate's addiction to fame?

Doubt it, but it would be nice if someone in the media, besides David Zurawick, calls her on her BS.

She'sTheMayorOfCrazyTown said...

Wow! That's a whole insane asylum of crazy people. She'll fit right in.

PR in PA said...

UGH!

Nanny Deb said...

Dr. Drew: Thanks for having us here on the View Ladies. Today we'd like to talk about addiction. Mackenzie, why don't you start.

MP: Well, I became an addict when my dad

Kate : *I* have a dad. He doesn't know how to help me though!

MP: Ummm..,OK, as I was saying

Kate: (looks bored, fiddles with weave)

Other View Ladies: Ask semi-pertinant questions

Dr. Drew: Mindy, will you share your story?

MM: I had deep issues, but decided that I had to get myself together for my child's sake...

Kate: *I* have EIGHT kids. Yes, EIGHT!

MM: Well, ok, I have one. Who I adore...

Kate: (looks bored some more. smacks gum. Fiddles with weave and pulls dress higher on thigh.)

OVL: Ask questions, empathize, try and fail to involve Kate in intelligent discussion.

Dr Drew: Jenny, can you talk a bit now?

JK: Well, I acted out my pain through sex...

Kate: *I* had sex! Twice!

JK: Um, well, I did it more than that...

Dr. Drew: Ladies, I know this wasn't rehearsed, but I need my heavy duty interventionists on stage with me right now.

HDI's come on stage

Dr. Drew: (points at Kate.) HDI's, take this bitch DOWN! She's going back with us for some serious narcissistic attention whore therapy, RIGHT NOW!

Audience applauds, on their feet, joined by TVL and the guest ladies, except for Babs, who begins to mutter quietly, "But she could be a STAR! A STAR!!"

Sharon Marie said...

Hmmm, is K8 going to be talking about being addicted to fame????

PatK said...

I sure hope Kate gets the chance to remind us all, once again, how she's struggling to support her eight--count 'em, eight--children all on her own "without Jon's financial support".

You can never hear that one enough.

Jane in California said...

Dr. Drew and Kate should get along just fine and dandy. In fact, Kate should take careful notes and emulate Dr. Drew, because he's much more clever about disguising his addiction to fame than she is. If he has a wife or children, he keeps them out of the limelight. Basically, he exploits celebrities with addictions; whereas Kate exploits her minor children. Small difference, yet one that will carry Dr. Drew further than Kate.

I used to think Dr. Drew was halfway decent. Now I think there's nothing to admire him for.

Canadian Mom said...

Nanny Deb is funny!

LP said...

Wasn't Dr. Drew on some panel at some point stating that he DIDN'T think the show was harmful to the kids? He's just another hack IMO. I won't watch but will wait for the Z recap.

MickeyMcKean said...

It is funny, when I first heard she was on THE VIEW I figured she was going to push sales of her new book.

But now that the news re DWTS is out, I will bet my last paycheck that not only will Kate remind us all that she is doing this "for the kids" but she will ask [beg] point blank for votes - at least 2 times!

Brummygirl said...

Dr. Drew is addressing questions to one of the guests, Kate waiting to get her plugs in about DWTS!!

Kate: "Well Dr. Drew, I am addicted to self improvement!

Dr. Drew: That is admirable Kate, it is good when one improves their mind.

Kate: Mind?? Oh ummm.. I was speaking about body. I have NOT had plastic surgery in spite of what people think..*cackle*. I worked on the treadmill and my tatas just lifted up in spirit. My hair and teeth were gifts as well as my french nails. So...ummmm...(smacks gum) you see, I do believe in self improvement because I have to be a better mom to my kids and they deserve my beautiful self on a golden platter. It's all about the kids Dr. Drew, that's why I am here today and on DWTS next Monday 8.00 p.m. Pacific time!!"

Whoopie: "And who has those kids today Kate and when you are on DWTS hmm?"

Kate: Ummm...you know...ummm Jon..yes, Jon and five nannies.

Kate: (fiddles with earpiece)ummmm....it's all about the kids Whoopee!! (sends glaring looks as one eye blinks rapidly!!)
I need to do this as being the sole provider and carer...errr...caregiver for my children!"

Whoopee: "Then Jon does not pay anything towards the kids, or look after them?"

"Well ummm..."



BabaWaba: We will cut to a commercial now!!!..................

Kate is a hag and looks it said...

Pictures of Kate off to do more fame whoring merrily leaving the kids er meal tickets behind.

Katie711 said...

WOW. I just made the grave error of going to ROL and those ole coots have their panties twisted big time tonight. They are trying with everything they have to slam Jon and saying he isn't paying child support and that is why Zilla has to go on DWTS.. I want to know ,,, HOW THE HECK DO THEY KNOW Jon isn't paying child support? Its NEVER been said he isn't. And second why are those old bitties so pissed off when people post something negative about Khate? They crawl out of the woodwork and try to verbally attack you for having YOUR OWN opinion. What the heck is that?
It's so sad that Khate can bring out the very worst in people.

Katie711 said...

Is the View SO desperate for co-hosts that they have to have her on yet again? She is so desperate for fame. And I just cant imagine that any wife would let their husband be with her for this many days as her lover oops sorry I mean Bodyguard has been. You can not tell me that she is happy about this.. She is a REALITY personality so to speak and the REAL CELEBS dont have bodyguards. Hell if PAM ANDERSON doesnt have one why in the holy he** does she need one? Maybe it's cuz of the crazies over on ROL?? After all I have seen her so called fans.. SCARY...

KatesDancingHooves said...

Oh, The View...Time for the ladies to kiss Kate's butt!

Oh, and remember the look on Kate's face when she & Jon left Toys R Us & he was telling her she treated him like a "frickin dog" ? She looked at him like she had no clue why he was upset?

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

Katezilla w/ a weave said...

This is going to be one trainwreck of misfits to watch.

JaxMom said...

Maybe Kate will talk about what's really in her coffee cup.

Then have an emotional breakdown... begging for our sympathy... because.. it's... ... so....... to... be...a... ....single Mom to eight kids!

Hambone said...

Ole Katie-Poo might get a wee bit uncomfortable with all the talk about addiction.

Word has it she likes her wine and lots of it.

And I'm 99% sure it was Kate's PR firm who begged and bargained to get Kate as a host again...just in time to try to lobby for DWTS votes.

I hope old Whoopie and Joy act annoyed with her again like they did last time.

LP said...

Wasn't Dr. Drew on some panel at some point stating that he DIDN'T think the show was harmful to the kids?
---------------------------------

Yep, he said that on Larry King.

NCgirl said...

Yes, Dr. Drew was on Larry King saying the J&K show wasn't harmful. But he also said he knows Eileen O'Neill of TLC so of course, he has to stay on TLC's good side. I was neutral about him until then. He's just another TLC toadie. He also has triplets, but Kate has eight. Eight!

She's desperate said...

World News today - did you know that Kate spent 5 whole minutes for a photo op w/ the kids today before having her hair done and her and her lover Steve heading to NYC.

Ohio Buckeye said...

Nanny Deb and Brummy: Applause!

The View will be nothing more than Dr. Drew opening his toybox, lugging all his broken toys to perform on stage.

If Dr. D had any credibility at all, he'd make sure K8G was in that toybox by the time the show was over.

Lord knows, that's where she belongs: in Dr. Drew's box of broken toys.

Under lock & key.

chronicworld said...

Somehow, mark my words, amidst all the anguish of addiction swirling through the air on the View, these words will be spoken:
30 weeks bedrest.

tj said...

I hate to disappoint you, Chronicworld, but Kate was sticking to the 2 1/2 months bedrest story at the expo this weekend.

Amazing, huh?????

CityGirl said...

I don't know if this has been said or not but there is a 49 sec clip of Kate and Tony dancing (if you can call it dancing) Just shows that she is NOT a dancer, but IS a big flirt!!

I saw it on JonandKateDisintegrate.com or it can be found on utube. It is short and you can see the mic and camera for the clip that will be shown on the view of their rehearsal.

CityGirl said...

Also, I really hope Sherry or Barbara is not on the View when Kate is there. Sherry is a major Kate defender. Barbara keeps order and no one (Whoopi) will be able to get a complete question in. Kate is there to promote DWTS, the clip had to be done so they could use it on the View.

Tami said...

Please tell me he will call her out for being a fame whore. Or addicted to plastic surgery. Something!

Let's play Kate Interview Bingo. Between Nanny Deb, Brummygirl, and BMWoP we have a number of key phrases.

Personally, I hope for a bingo card with multiple foot-shake squares.

But here are some others:



Everything is for my children

I can only go forward

I didn't realize it would be so hard/ this isn't where I wanted to be (eye dab required for full point)

Any rhetorical self-interview questions (Do I love the dogs? No I do not. Will I bring them back for my children (no two-fers with first entry, above)? Yes, I will.)

In my new book, I say . . . As I say in the new book

Moms all over the country will vote for me and my incredibly hot costumes and awesomely awesome hair.

Wild card square: perfectly grammatical sentence with subject- verb agreement, correct usage and vocabulary, and an actual idea (a sentence is supposed to be a unit of thought, not just a chance to make noise with your mouth.)

Yeeeeesh--I will actually do more to build my sense of self-esteem by cleaning out and relining the pit for our sump pump tomorrow than Kate can possibly do during her stint on national tv. When is she going to wake up and smell her own dysfunction?

HI 50 said...

PLEASE! Dr. Drew can EXPLOIT Kate in a special intervention show for fame whores who "chase the dragon!!!!" Maybe the DSM can create a special category under Personality Disorder, Cluster B (dramatic, emotional, erratic)

Fame Whore Addiction

I. Due to Multiple Births
II. Due to Entitlements and Freebies
III. Due to Anxiety Disorder - OCD
IV. Due to Relationship Estrangement
V. Succubus NOS
VI. Harpy NOS

Of course Dr. Drew will need to make special accommodations to insure Kate has ajoining rooms for her bodyguard/handler Steve. Don't worry about the kids during the intervetion/exploitation, the nannies have a handle on the kids. AND the kids are doing well.

pam said...

I don't tweet but maybe some people who do can ask dr drew to ask kate about being addicted to fame, money, plastic surgery,tanning, the Spa, his twitter account is @drdrew.

JenMomOfNone said...

Also I not so sure Sherry is always so quick to defend Kate. During a Hot Topics segment a couple of weeks back I remember Barbara giving Levi Johnston a lashing for saying that the money he makes from his celebrity is a "job." She was like "get a real job!" Sherry chimed in a said "Well what about someone like Kate Gosselin? Would you tell her the same thing? No."

I'm not a fan of Sherry Shepherd, but I think she had a point. What is the deal with the double standard? Why is is ok for Kate to famewhore herself out for 'the sake of her kids" and not Levi?

OzNTM said...

I saw it on JonandKateDisintegrate.com or it can be found on utube

A word of warning - do not go to utube, go to youtube! A guy from work typed that in instead of youtube and found it's an adult video site...

Gimme Gimme said...

Oh Dear..I watched that clip. That is not pretty. She is not serious at all about the dancing. She is just concentrating on Tony. I hope that was made very early on and not recently. Or maybe she was just playing it up for the cameras as she is prone to do to throw everyone off course?

Gimme Gimme said...

And the mortgage and Jon is irresponsible. We already have a preview.

All this talk about Jon not paying child support...Kate would have him put under the jail if he was not paying. He is under contract with TLC...they are probably taking it directly out of whatever his cut might be. He needs to make sure that is being documented with the courts and not trust anyone else to say they will take care of it.

People just don't seem to understand that about Kate. There is no reason for her to continue to slam Jon. She has technically castrated him already when she gave the world her nickname for him. She can back off now. It would be different if he truly was a bad person but he clearly is not. Just very nieve I think. But a good dad and that is true measure of a man.

Jenny said...

Oh my lord, CityGirl, what a great clip that was! I was actually shocked at how clutzy K8 was... she's absolutely stiff as a board! I'm telling you, if this is the state of her progress thus far, her performance on the first night of DWTS just 5 nights away is going to be a complete disaster! I honestly thought for a minute that it might be a joke or something when I watched it!

Poor Tony, he seemed to have the patience of Job with her as he counted, "1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3," and she could barely maintain even that. I think she's probably trying really hard but from this clip, it ain't workin', trust me! Cloris Leachman was more coordinated that Kate! I'm telling you, the judges' jaws are going to drop!

After seeing that, I'm convinced now that she's definitely going for the sympathy vote...and probably "all you moms out there (sob) who know I'm doing this just so I can support my kids. Please vote for me. (sob)"

Jenny said...

And I agree that when Barbara Wawa is on the show, everyone else tends to cower a little bit if they have an opinion that doesn't agree with hers. She's the boss and they know it. Occasionally one or more of the others ventures out and bravely gives their opinion but if Barbara doesn't like it, they all sense it and tend to back down...not always but most of the time (just from what I've noticed).

So yeah, it'll be interesting to see how it all goes if Barbara is there...since she's said more than once that, "Kate is a star." Obviously, she hasn't seen the footage of K8 being K8 that we all have. So I agree that I hope she's taking a day off today.

MayDay said...

I have to say I am so sick of Sherri Shepard and that whiny " single mom" stuff. She is always throwing that out- anyone who does not have a husband or partner Sherri always says.." oh but she's a single mom" I am soooooo tired of Sherri using this excuse. Many of the people including herself have the children's father taking them for visitation. A single mom is someone who gets no relief, no father to take the kids for visitation and she does it all on her own. Sherri will mention how Kate is a single mom of eight....give me a break!!! Single mom's do not have nanny's and bodyguards taking care of their kids. This is the trouble with this world, one excuse after the other.

Katie711 said...

Boy the View is really scrapping the bottom of the barrel to get Co-Hosts. It BOGGLES my mind that Kzilla is quoted as saying she would give " all this up " well NO ONE wants her on tv first off and second who's holding the gun to her head to do it???? ( I realize the crazies over on ROL all 10 of em love to see her on tv but the rest of America can do WELL WITHOUT SEEING HER )

Katie711 said...

TO Nanny Deb... I laughed SO hard when I read you post... That is SO priceless and right on the money.. Love the part where she ( you ) said " Ive had sex.. twice " LOL LOL that was awesome.. WELL DONE.

Laurie said...

Tami said...

***********************************
He won't call her out. He was on her side during the divorce & stated that the show WASN'T hurting the kids. This statement was made on one of the shows like Larry King Live (I don't remember which show though). He is as big a fame whore as she is. JMHO.

ubu said...

saw the promo for dwth stars- kates lazy eye is very obvious.
alos watch a gma interview- besides the um,,s, she had to carry on about show bust she is with 8 kids and she keeps looking at tony instead of answersing the questions directly.

rural mom said...

So Bonnie Fuller writes this bullshit story about how we should sympathize with Kate. Why? Because the more times Kate can be on Fuller's tabloid covers, the more money Bonnie and company make off Kate.
The truth is Jon and Kate are both under contract with TLC and getting paid, and Jon is mandated by the courts to pay child support. Watch Kate twist these facts by lie or omission on the View today, better yet, don't watch!

BarbMae said...

I just saw the pics on ROL w/Kate arriving in NY for the View. Wow! Steve does look beaten down. IMO if it was up to him he would "divorce" Kate but again TLC has him under contract so he has to travel with Kate. Those pics of her playing are completely staged. It is beautiful weather in the Ohio/PA area 60-65 until Sat. but a tank top.... ?? unreal. So she is in NY and will probably fly out to LA for the weekend so how long will she be away from the kids? Face it she will be away from them way more then she will be with them. Those poor kids.... hopefully Jon will be with them more often. Wow. What changes in such young kids lives.... your parents ugly divorce, dogs being taken away, having a every other weekend Dad, holidays were at least quiet for you but the train wreck began again and now Mom is away more than she is home and Daddy's visits are limited and you now have new nannies taking care of you.... did I read 6 on/off nannies, and the dogs may be back??? What?? Talk about upheaval. I just feel so sorry for those kids.

silimom said...

As I've said, with the gag order on Jon, Kate has no one to shift the focus to. She can't hide behind his antics anymore and people are questioning her talk vs her walk. Jon's off the radar right now unless he's with the kids.

I think the "Jon isn't paying" comes directly from
Kate saying she can't depend on Jon financially therefore she sees herself as the breadwinner. She never said he WASN'T paying, just alluding that he's unreliable.

I'm not sure TLC is paying them right now since they're not filming. Any industry people want to educate me?

As for the cimplaint that he hadn't been with the kids since Feb. 28, I'd like to point out that we are not privy to the details of their custody agreement nor how they have structured their current visitation schedule. If Jon is going to be with the kids while Kate's traveling, like last time, then I'm sure he's asked for these past two-three weeks to himself. That's how divorce with kids works, folks. And frankly, while it would be good PR for Jon, I thinknit's important that Kate face the natural consequences of her decision to divorce Jon, one of them
being she's forced to deal with her kids or pay nannies through the nose to avoid them. Not happy about what it does to the kids - they deserve a relationship with their mom - but it does allow the world to see her gor the fame whore she is, I think.

Ohio Buckeye said...

Re: K8G on The View w/Dr. Drew:

Wouldn't it be great if this scheduled The View appearance by K8G was just a ruse by others to do an intervention on K8G for her obvious addiction to fame?

Ah, well, a girl can dream......

marce said...

Barbara walters might have a daughter, but she knows nothing about being a mom. She started in this business when women couldn't "have it all". If this women ever saw any of the shows she could easily see that Jon was not only the better parent, but Kate treated him like a dog. Kate might get her fame now, From the grin on her face, she is eating it up, She is a fool, she always will be because she has no talent for anything except the same line "I'm doing it for my kids" She wants a job on soap opera now, TLC didn't invest all that money on her for her to jump ship, they want the profits that she brings. Her kids are not marketable anymore, there too old, and as most real parents know, they aren't living the life of kids that are 5.years olds . Kids have play dates, friends, after school activities that keep us parents running around...The twins are not only old enough to not play along with this farce, they will have a say if they choose to or not, and i don't think they will. I can't wait for this dance show to be over to see what Kate does next. Maybe a book about how she prepared for the dance, then a book tour..To me these kids are lost, especially the twins. The real world ,is just starting start for them.. Kids are cruel, and they will bear the brunt of it for years to come.. Money comes and goes, and it goes faster when you have nothing to offer, no skills, no talent. Kate will get hers in the end..I am just sorry it's talking so long, a kid's childhood goes by very quickly"

BMWoP said...

I just wish this idgit would get off my tv. Everywhere I turn, there she is. Invading all my favorite shows.

People say, "then don't watch". How is it fair that I have to practically get rid of my tv in order to get rid of Kate Gosselin?

God, I would never keep subjecting people to my face if I knew 3/4 of the country had disdain for me. I wouldn't do that to the people, to my kids....but she doesn't care!

Anne said...

Kate's stylist must seriously hate her! I didn't watch the View but flipped by it. Paused long enough to see Kate sitting on the couch between Joy and Elizabeth, didn't see her speak (I only stopped for 10 seconds).

Today's show appears to be a serious one and Kate is dressed like she's going clubbing or just came from the club. A morning talk show co-host job tackling a serious subject today and you show up wearing a hot pink minidress and silver party shoes? She was dressed like a 22 year old going clubbing, not a mid-30s woman co-hosting a talk show.

You can't tell me her stylist likes her to put her in public looking like this.

Janet said...

I caught a few minutes when Drew and Phillips was on...Kate looked like a fool. With her Neon Pink Barbie Dress and fake hair...kicking her foot and trying to look like she belonged in that conversation...she is just a joke. I did catch a few possible digs when the blonde was talking....Dr Drew said...Moms need to be with their kids...Probably went right over Kate's bleached processed head.

KatyKat said...

Kate is not co-hosting. Her big rear is just holding down the couch. She hasn't said a word in 30mins. No star power at all.

I think she was just brought in to deny all of the things we know are true, and to insinuate that Jon is not paying child support. If he is, I hope he calls her on it.

susyq said...

Watching the View, man, Kate looks rough. She looks 10 years older than she is...She just looks hard.

Teryn said...

From National Enquirer this week...

" National Enquirer Gossip Guy Mike Walker dished this week.

Enquirer spies say Dovolani is “frustrated, furious, and flat-out exhausted” after nearly a month of trying to transform Kate’s two left feet into high scorers in the ballroom.

Mike writes: “’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…..”



Hmmmmmmmmmmm. How surprising.

BerksPa said...

Saw the View. Kate was seriously a Bump on a Log. When questioned about Jon paying child support she wouldn't answer...but it made it seem like she wanted to paint him in a bad light, but restrained herself from outright lying about him on camera. I'm sure he's paying his fair share.
Definitely couldn't understand why she was guest hosting, she ask all of two questions in total.
She was questioned on how she felt about the negative Page 6 article. She said she ignores that stuff and that people should ignore the tabloid articles about her, she's really not like that.
So, I'm thinking, does she not see that the TLC PR machine is totally trying to portray her nicey nice in the media/tabloids? The truth does come out (like Page 6) and to be honest, Page 6 may be gossipy, but they are pretty spot on with their insider info.

Anyways, don't bother watching The View...nothing new...she sat there, but didn't twirl her hair or shake her legs (must have been reading up here).

rural mom said...

So Kate once again blew her PR cover story. SHe tried to insinuate that she alone supports the kids and Joy calls her out on it asking "what about Jon, financially?" and Kate grimaces and says "I am here to talk about DWTS", okay then, so you lie, huh? Sure you do. Then stupid Kate sets up a story illustrating how she lies by omission - I just tell people who ask my kids are 5 and 9, cackle and then she says "well tecnically that is the truth.
Okie dokey Kate, you are all about the technical truth, the partial truth, the lies by omission, and how dare anyone pin you down and confirm you are a big fat liar. Might as well pack it in Kate, you are busted.

shanabanana said...

So im home sick today and becasue i needed to induce vomitting i watched the view.

Barbara was not on.

Kate looked well processed. You can tell its not her natural hair, her teeth were whitened too much and she platered on this smile that didnt look genuine.

I didnt care for this look on her, I wish she would look softer

Shari asked about the diva attitiude and kate said that she is hardly there.

She spoke of dancing before the kids wake up and after the kids go to bed. Elizabeth asked if the kids dance and kate said that when the cameras are turned off they dance a little. I guess all rehersals are filmed?

When asked if Jon was pay paying her support and helping with the kids, it was obvious that she was trying to give answeres to make people believe that jon didnt pay support and didnt come over much. Phooey on you Kate.. you kids will see this one day and call you out for being a liar.

While at the table with dr drew she fiddle with a blue card and read it to herself, and looked down at it.

With dr and two women on the couch she was basically ignored and spent time reading the blue card as if she were rehersings lines.

She did manage to read the question she had on the card, and nodded and smiled in the right places

With dr drew and one lady, she was again ignired and spent a lot of time re reading that blue card.

shanabanana said...

I loved when they spoke of child actors who get addicted- not because of the stardom, but because of their family life

Hah -
i hope Kate listened.
What we saw of the relationship between Kate and Jon was scary- the yelling ,insults, put downs etc
Who knows what went on off camera and what is going on now in the kids life.

AnnaBanana said...

chronicworld said...

Somehow, mark my words, amidst all the anguish of addiction swirling through the air on the View, these words will be spoken:
30 weeks bedrest.

----

It's funny how Kate talks about the bedrest during her pregnancy as if it were torture. She probably loved every minute of laying in bed for weeks, barking orders at Jon, being the center of attention, being waited on hand and foot, and getting sympathy from everyone in her community...and she's still milking that sympathy 5 years later.

cheers said...

Kate did a bad job as a CO HOST.


Im sure a teenager/contest winner/make a wish participant/ kids of a host/you get my drift who got the chance to sit up ther would have done a better job

Comfortable with a camera my foot

maggie said...

During the first segment at the table, it was Whoopi, Elizabeth, Joy, Sherri, & Kate. Then for the second segment at the TABLE, they bought Dr. Drew out and Kate was ignored. Then the rest of the show, they had multiply guests that were on Dr. Drew's tv program about addictions. Kate read a total of 3 questions over an 40 minute period. She was wooden, and shook her foot a little, and was re-reading and referring to her little card to practice her questions.

I think it was a flop for Kate. Very, very little attention was given to her. And the questions that they asked her during the opening segment, she threw Jon under the bus about child support and then dismissed the lies written about her being a snob to the cast of DWTS.

Also i can believe what this person is saying and can appreciate his frustrations.

She does not look light on her feet (neither am i, so i dont enter serious competitions)

When Jon pointed out things Kate did wrong, she would snarl and start to yell, try to distract from what he was saying etc.

I can totally see when corrected on the dance floor kate trying to distract, gosh hopefull by not laughing or cackling

Anne said...

I call total BS on Jon not paying support. TLC still has him "under contract". I'm sure whatever his child support is, TLC pays directly to Kate from Jon's "contract" pay.

It appears Jon's settlement with TLC is we'll keep paying you but you need to shut the f**k up so we can make Kate look like the sole provider supermom to 8 kids.

If Jon wasn't paying support, Kate would have his butt in court in a heartbeat.

motherof 7 said...

I really can't stand this woman. Never was there a happier day then when Jon and Kate/8 went off the air. I thought that shrill voice was finally closed never to be heard again and now I understand she is on Dancing with the Stars making Shannon D. look like an angel. Apparently Kate is some type of Superstar, one that I have never seen in any movie, or accept an Academy Award, just someone that had ARTIFICIAL INSEMINATION and wham, first 2 babies and then again not the “normal way” but through the miracle of science she had ARTIFICIAL INSEMINATION and 6 infants were born. She goes on and on about laying on her back for 30 weeks to make sure the babies were healthy but lets not forget SHE MADE A CHOICE TO BE INSIMATED WITH 6 EGGS INSTEAD OF 1 or 2. Kate is a nobody wanting desperately to be a somebody. Oh how I hope she is voted off quickly and though I don't watch this show I would pay money to see her face when they tell her that she will not be coming back for the next round of dancing. This is a woman with a real need to be the center of attention and if she isn't, there is nothing she will not do to put herself in the lime light all in the name of her "children". KATE GO HOME, SHUT UP AND YOU TAKE CARE OF YOUR KIDS NOT MADE US BELIEVE IT IS YOU WHEN IT IS A NANNY.

sillyrabbit said...

Why would Kate co host a TALK show that includes a segment such as 'hot topics' when per the terms & conditions of her TLC contract, is unable to speak about or in reference of anything other than topics that are self serving or that are specifically relevant to the benefit of TLC!!!

season 5 said...

I can't get over her smugly and coyly implying she's not receiving child support payments. That part made me mad. Wouldn't Jon be in jail by now if he wasn't paying? How does she get away with this? I really felt like I was watching something devious at work, so I am going to have to rethink my curiosity in this whole spectacle. Yuck!

She was fixated on adjusting her left earpiece and the camera kept cutting away. Yes, she said ummmm when answering questions about herself.

The rest was just boring, though I only made it to the first commercial break, then checked back in one more time for twenty seconds to see her staring at her blue notecard and trying not to bounce her (crossed) leg.

Merrilee said...

I absolutely LOVE it! She is back in her too precious little baby doll dresses. Whoopeey!!

She looks like a big old cow! Those big boobies do absolutely nothing except make her look fat!

Thanks to Teryn for sharing this tidbit from the Nat'l Enquirer:

Enquirer spies say Dovolani is “frustrated, furious, and flat-out exhausted” after nearly a month of trying to transform Kate’s two left feet into high scorers in the ballroom.

Mike writes: “’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…..”

* * *
Yes, it's Nat'l Enquirer so take with a grain of salt. Yet doesn't this sound like a spot on description of Kate? ROFLMAO!

Poor Dovalani - I'd feel a tad more sorry for him if he hadn't spouted that nonsense about Kate being an inspiration to mothers everywhere. Shouldn't have said that Dovalani.

Ohio Buckeye said...

"It's funny how Kate talks about the bedrest during her pregnancy as if it were torture. She probably loved every minute of laying in bed for weeks, barking orders at Jon, being the center of attention, being waited on hand and foot, and getting sympathy from everyone in her community...and she's still milking that sympathy 5 years later.
&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

Amen!!! Same song, second verse when she had her abdominoplasty. The one and only time she reported she actually got along with her husband and 'we didn't fight once!' - well, YEAH, because she laid around like The Queen she believes herself to be and Jon catered to and waited on her hand and foot.

And THAT is the life K8G believes she deserves.

Blech.

Turn the page, K8G, that bedrest was a long, long time ago. What have you done for anyone else lately???

organizedblogroll said...

aaawwww. Missed this one.

I had dust bunnies to count under my bed.

Ella's Mum said...

First of all Kate showed once again that unless the conversation is about her, she has nothing to say.

Secondly I think that Whoopi was getting a dig in when she didn't know how many kids Kate had, she has been on the show twice before and talked about her 8 count em 8 kids.

She looked like a bloody easter egg in that dress!

IDModo said...

Wht doesn't Kate use some of her DWTS money to hire ONE top-notch, trained, CONSISTENT nanny to be wwith the children? And one other equally good one to provide relief?There are excellent nannies in the world who don't look like teenage helpers or bar rejects.The British aristocracy has been doing this for years.( Well, maybe not the best example..)Anyway, this would provide the children with the stability and consistency that growing children require, no matter which parent was home or away at the time.They would learn some manners, some appropriate social skills, and have someone who was there for their best interests.
I just answered my own question! The kids might grow to love a consistent nanny more than Kate; Kate would feel obligated to compete with her;if this person was a properly trained child care specialist she would be obligated to report abuse; and her ethical stance might preclude her taking a job working for The Shrew Queen.In addition, the kids might blow the whistle to her about other things (possibly Mom's drinking for example)that should not be going on, and she would have to stand up to Monster Mom about them.
My guess is also that no therapist has ever been allowed to provide treatment for those kids, for the same reasons.
Is Jon so absolutely p....whipped that he can't see this and act upon it for his children's sake?
I just answered my own question again. Looks like I'm catching Kate's bad habit..Am I worried?Yes.
Can I change things?Probably not.
ARRRGH!!

Momof2 said...

I watched and I think there were a lot of messages to Fake that went right over her head...child exploitation...I can't count how many times the word "exploitation" was used in front of Fake. It actually cracked me up because she is sooooo clueless...especially when they were talking about trauma of divorce on children. She looked like a fool...totally didn't get it at all. She was clearly out of place and uncomfortable.

jibberjabbers said...

Didn't Kate Gosselin offer to drop her Child Support request from Jon if he allowed the kids to be filmed?

And Kate on the View who cares. I didn't watch.

Button button said...

LP said...
Wasn't Dr. Drew on some panel at some point stating that he DIDN'T think the show was harmful to the kids? He's just another hack IMO. I won't watch but will wait for the Z recap.

3/16/2010 2:37 PM

I am not sure, but he was somewhere talking about how multiples are so difficult to raise and how couples can really get in trouble if they are not very careful. Drew's wife had triplets, I know that is a fact.

It seems to me he was sort of saying Kate's marriage failed because she and Jon didn't adequately guard against letting multiples change who the parents were. Something like that.

I have heard him say they have triplets and it was very difficult on both parents.

Brummygirl said...

What a joke!! In the whole hour, Kate asked three questions and one of them I could not hear. I laughed when they interviewed her at the beginning and just as my parody on here went, she avoided the questions on Jon contributing money to the family. She intimated by her hesitance, that he was not contributing. Of course she did, otherwise she could not validate her “I have to work to support my kids”.
She was totally out of her depth with all the questions going around. She kept looking at her paper in her lap wondering when she could step in, nodding her head like a wobble doll. If she thinks she will ever get a talk show, good luck, you do not know how to interact and converse intelligently Kate.
The leg was wagging when the subject came close to her and the stony look was in her eyes e.g. addiction because of parent’s divorce, addiction because of taking too much on, addiction because of being constantly on he tabloids, addiction because of fame and so it went on, covering many things pertinent to Kate.
Ha, they could not have picked a better subject for her to be on and I am wondering if they knew that.
She was dressed in silver shoes and bright pink dress which was more suitable for a cocktail party. Whoopee was in a baggy shirt, pants and runners.
You bombed Kate just like we knew you would!!! Faker!!!!

winsomeone said...

Saw Kate this morning, and what struck me most, was how incredibly tall she is. She just towered over the other women. I realize she had on 3 inch heels, but so did a couple of the others. She never looked this tall on her show. Does anyone know just how tall she really is? Plus, every time she started to shake her foot/leg, the camera moved right away from her. So who knows how much she really did it this time.

Katie711 said...

There is a video over on ROL. ( I know I cant stop myself from going there and reading a few of the CRAZIEST comments ever. ) of Khate defending herself from the rumors about her being a diva. She used her favorite word in the universe... RIDICULOUS. Really Kate is it Ridiculous really??? As ridiculous as you having breast surgery??? Face it everyone is on to you ( except for the few ppl on ROL ) and your DIVA WAYS... GO HOME

Protect8 said...

I watched the opening of the show. Whoopi completely and intentionally dissed Kate by asking her how many multiples she had. Joy Behar has slammed Kate on her evening show. The whole interaction was stiff and very scripted and yes - awkward as usual.

Loved Kate's quick comment about "the cameras are turned off" then the children come downstairs. She is covering her ass on so many different levels.

But after the introduction I only listened to the show -busy doing something else. To listen to the show you would not know Kate was even part of it except for those, again, extremely scripted questions.

Narcisssists are clueless as to how to engage in a conversation that does not involve them. They get irritated, confused and I imagine for some of the time Kate was sitting there with her mouth open.

***

Really? I hadn't heard that rumor. Wow. I REALLLLLYYYY hope that she did and he took her up on it. Not because I want the kids filmed. Not because I wish them ill. Because I want Kate to pay the price for her short sightedness and narcissism. (I'd like to add that I don't believe family law allows those types of agreements, I think you are required by the state to pay child support, but I could be wrong).

I mean, have we heard any more from TLC about Kate's new show? Any rumors about them gearing up to film Kate + 8? Aside from DWTS, which may or may not generate more jobs for her, what has she really got lined up on the horizon? Oh yeah, her book. We know how well the last one did.

The reckoning is at hand. Kate's "career" is going to go the way of Jon's - down the drain. It may happen sooner, it may happen later. I wish TLC would put a gag order on her, frankly. That might be the only way they'd get a ROI on her. Otherwise, everyone seems to be just sick of seeing her everywhere and hearing the same old, tired "I do it for my kids". Yeah, Kate, well so does everyone else. What else you got?

"Plus, every time she started to shake her foot/leg, the camera moved right away from her. So who knows how much she really did it this time."

I hate to admit it, but I watched The View this morning. Both times (she only asked 2 questions the entire hour)she asked a question her leg began to shake, to the point I thought she was going to kick Elisabeth. That is clearly a sign of nerves. It was really uncomfortable watching her, because she was clearly out of her league. Nothing to contribute except very scripted questions she read directly from her blue cards, which she clung to for the entire show.

JSL said...

National Inquirer got Tiger Woods story AND John Edwards story. Her defense is those that know her -- how about letting those who know her out of those confidentiality agreements - then we'll see what they actually say. I think the lack of family, friends etc speaks volumes.

silimom said...

I'm seeing a disturbing trend amongst female journalists where Kate is concerned. A lot of articles I've read lately have bought into the whole "She's got 8 kids to support and a lifestyle to maintain. Back off. If she were a man, no one would be criticizing her leaving her kids for weeks at a time".

It's almost as if some women see Kate as a new poster child for women's lib, holding her up as some sort of icon of the double standard we have with what is okay for men and what's okay for women. Anyone else see that? Or is it just me?

What if the roles were reversed? What if Jon were the one with primary custody and Kate was the one falling apart? Would we be as critical of him going on DWTS and saying it was to provide for his family?

Probably not. But that's because there are differences. First off, I don't think Jon was ever marketed nor marketed himself as the ideal of fatherhood. Secondly, we watched Jon care for his kids for 2 and 1/2 years. We watched him feed them, bathe them, care for them when they were sick, when they were constipated, play with them. We watched him convert a room so Cara and Mady could have their own space. He didn't hire someone to do it all, he did a lot of it himself. We have watched him give to his children. So, if Jon were to say "I'm doing this for my kids" I'd tend to believe him.

We have watched Kate yell at her kids (oh I'm sorry - discipline them), spank them, threaten or actually throw away beloved toys that are comforts to them, deny them food at their own birthdays and water before interviews, sit on her plastic chair and yell at other people to play with her kids, make them sleep on a floor in the laundry room when they had the stomach flu so that she wouldn't have to wash ther soiled bedding and clothes, and over all show that parenting her children is a duty rather than a privilege. There's more to parenting than throwing chips and pancakes on paper plates, cleaning (which she didn't really do much of herself) and opening lids off of playdough so they can play with it in the garage. That's part of it. But where was the sitting down and asking them about their day? Where was the teaching them how to color and draw and make things with playdough? Don't tell me she was too busy - I have a lot of kids, I manage it. Becki and Keith Dilley managed it and they did it without loads of help and cameras filming every day. If her supposed "OCD" was that bad that all she could was clean, clean, clean, she should have been receiving professional help because that's interfering with your ability to live a normal life. Where was teaching your children to clean up after themselves so you wouldn't have to spend all that time cleaning?

I won't say there haven't been some moments where she has shown affection - there have just like I won't say that there haven't been times Jon has yelled at his kids as well.

But even with all of his jerky behavior and poor choices recently, I have never once felt that Jon didn't enjoy or love his kids. I have with Kate.

So yes, I think that Kate shouldn't have done DWTS right now. I think her kids need her more than they need money. She has enough set aside (I hope! and if not she's just as big a fool as Jon) that she could have downsized and been able to still meet their needs, especially if she worked part time as a nurse while they were in school and had a babysitter to pick them up in the afternoon and care for them for a few hours. That's doing what you need to for your kids.

Oh, sorry, I forgot. I'm not supposed to criticize Kate. Oops. My bad.

maggie said...

What does everyone make of her comment about the cameras being turned off. What cameras? TLC's cameras filming for her new show or DWTS's cameras filming rehearsal segments. I would think DWTS would film her rehearsals segments at their studio in LA.

TLC hasn't a clue what to do with Kate in her "new" show so I think they would jump on filming her antics in the basement studio. And the kids are there also for added drama. Also ABC would like this for cross-promotion even if the TLC show is shown after DWTS is over.

PJ's momma said...

WHOA. Look at this post on ROL. Do these people honestly think Kate would give them the time of day if there wasn't something in it for her? Scary.
Kate has a smile better than the Mona Lisa...leonardo should come back just to paint her. Isn't she the best. I mean...she is simply glorious...she deserves my stalking this forum to pounce on all those haters and protect her.

Brummygirl said...

On the Sheeple site they are saying Kate was fantastic on the View! I wonder which one of her three questions they thought fantastic!!!
They are delusional, mistaken and totally batty!!!! Gee, I wish I could get a career uttering three lines of a script...

MaryAnnOgle said...

I am stunned at the end of the segment when they very purposely dissed Jon big time. That was not fair. I think Jon should be on next week to defend himself against the allegations hinted at today about not paying child support or being with the kids. Kate sat there all high and mighty with her perky ones all happy. She is disgusting. Poor Jon. I hear he is now living with another family of another girlfriend in Utah. He needs to call into the View to defend himself. It is not right.

Momof2 said...

Well. We'll soon find out if Fake is lying about the cameras being turned off.....once they resuscitate Fake plus 8 we'll get to see her "practicing" in her basement..and I bet they throw those cute lil kids in there too. You know TLC has been back in her house for a while.

MaryB said...

My bet is that TLC and Kate's publicist are hoping her stint on DWTS will clean up her image for the general public. Hoping her image will change enough to bring in new followers for her new show with the kids.
I would not at all be surprised if they are already filming the new show and filming the kids this very minute.
Bet they will have the start of the show showing her acting like Mother Teresa even though she is on DWTS's and proclaiming she is raising her kids by herself.
Poor kids.

I can't get over her smugly and coyly implying she's not receiving child support payments. That part made me mad. Wouldn't Jon be in jail by now if he wasn't paying? How does she get away with this? I really felt like I was watching something devious at work, so I am going to have to rethink my curiosity in this whole spectacle. Yuck!
------------------------------------------

Jon's under contract with TLC so how can she not be getting her payments? This will be nice, a gag order on Jon because he's under TLC's thumb & she goes around crying she isn't getting child support, he can't say anything. Someone needs to give her a good swift kick, lying vulture!

I'm glad her nerves are showing, I'm glad she's over exposing herself. It'll make things so much easier for those that'll be approached to put in something. Nope, sorry can't have her in any movie as she's too over exposed & the audience won't be able to see her as anyone but kate Gosselin. That & the more she's out there, the more the public in general seem to despise her all the more. Hopefully that'll translate into more people showing their distaste with their remotes each time she appears on their TV's.

Unfortunately for kate the Enquirer reports do sound a lot like her. Certainly what we have all come to expect of her.

Fufuss said...

I saw K8 on the View this morning ,for a few minutes, before I had to change channels to keep my blood pressure in check. I left as soon as K8 intimated that Jon wasn't paying his child support by saying "I'm here to talk about DWTS".
-Somebody must think we are stupid.
This isn't "K8 speak"...if it were her words she'd have been off & running with her poor single Mom mantra & Jon isn't paying me. -I think this is her handlers,Pr peeps, whoever who feeding her what to say in her ear piece. (They are trying to make her look & act human.)And maybe even to shut her up,
---I saw an interview she did,in the last week, where the interviewer asked if she'd had plastic surgery ...& K8 answered,"Who has time for plastic surgery".-Great answer...smoke & mirrors. It gave the listener the feeling that she hasn't. Ahahaha!
We aren't stupid, we have eyes. Just answer the question yes or no,K8.
We know she lies, has had plastic surgery,veneers for the teeth, stupid hair extensions...I could go on & on.
You gotta give those people(in K8s ear) sympathy...it's a hopeless job.

Nanny Deb said...

As a professional Nanny, I can tell you that I would welcome the chance to step in and help the 8 find a sense of stability, some honest accepting love, and actual real world ideals and morals. When I stopped watching the show in August 08, it was because I couldn't stomach what the crappy parenting from J & K was doing to those kids.

But then I would have to work for Kate, and that simply wouldn't work out. Why? Because her child-rearing beliefs are completely in conflict with mine, and I would smack that beeyotch eventually.

I can see working for Jon though. He's a twit, but he does at least seem to try to make an effort at parenting.

Kate would never hire an actual, honest-to-God, in-it-for-the-long-haul nanny though, because Kate is, in her own mind, utterly perfect and has no need to learn anything about parenting or her childrens' needs.

And a real nanny would feel compelled to try to reach Kate through the haze of self-involvement she stalks around in, and encourage her to try to accept and love her kids as they are, and discipline them effectively ragther than through fear, and spend time with them. And then Kate would toss that nanny away, as she tosses anyone away who dares to suggest that Kate is not the perfect mom.

my9cats said...

Silimom, ITA with you.
Today's alleged journalists/media personalities, male and female are an embarrassment to their profession. As a young adult who cut her teeth on Watergate I've always had a respect for journalism (ists). Now the preofession has broken down into sheer laziness. Fact-checking has gone out the window. In depth investigations are no more. What Kate Gosselin thinks or does carries more weight than the economy and how real families are struggling.
HEY MEDIA!!! Doesn't anyone have any dignity or ethics anymore? WTF happened to checking sources and not taking what they are being told first, second, thirdhand as gospel truth?

I took my mom to a doctor's appointment yesterday and read the recent People article.

She mentions some "fun outings" with the kids-I think it was to a bouncy place, movie with the boys and concert with the girls. Sounds like TLC to me-I am sure camera's will be following since we know she can't do anything with those kids without a camera!

Minka's tail said...

------------------------Exactly. That's why she's so frustrating. She's like a slippery eel who after winning over the right-leaning Christian crowd, slithered over some rocks and is now the heroine of the left-leaning feminist crowd. Nobody seems to think this is odd in the least, at least not in the mainstream media.

I said something like that last week, I think, but I'm glad someone else sees it too. There's no stopping this woman.

Just about any famous woman will have a nanny or two. Kristi Yamaguchi, who was also on DWTS has one, and she came right out and admitted it. Nobody (including myself) thinks she's a bad mother because of that. Women have careers and hire childcare. There are cases to be made for and against it, but it's very common.

Kate's entire basis of her fame is that she has a lot of kids, and she continues to sell herself as an overextended mother, and she continues to play the "martyr for my kids card." She's not a martyr. She's rich, she's got help, she's got time for all sorts of unsuccessful makeovers that make her look worse and worse. She no longer puts her kids first. She puts herself first. The circumstances that made her famous are long gone. It's time to either succeed at some sort of show biz venture so she can be famous for another reason or just fade away. Preferably the latter.

Mama Mia said...

Dear Kate,

Get off my tv.

Thanks

Greenshirt said...

Wow, I just checked out the comments on ROL on Kate's latest story. Her "fans" seem to be a combination of Mean Girls, tantruming toddlers, and cult members. Maybe Kate should start a cult. She could have them pitch tents on"Her" property, have them sign over all their worldly wealth to her, and she could have worship services three times a day. The KateCulters could wait on her hand and foot, all for the glory of getting to share a Juicy Juice with her. Members could wear angry possum wigs, denim minis, and pink kitten heels as their cult uniform. What do you think?

Pattypanda said...

Kate did good, she hardly spoke. Sherry was sarcastic when she asked about the rumors of her being a biatch. I wish someone would have asked if she had family helping out at home. Even celebs w/ nanny's often have a grandparent around. But this appearance was so NOT ABOUT KATE. She tried to elude that she's not getting support from Jon, don't buy it. If she wasn't she'd be all over the place crying poor. And how do you maintain that lifestyle of personal services, and private schools if you're broke. She still can't step off her own property without Steve. No way is that the only "bodyguard" available to her, like she really needs one.
The Kate Lovers can all hate me tomorrow, Spa Day w/ my daughter, thanks to gift certificates from the men in our lives. I need to use mine, before it gets regifted. LOL

Exhausted said...

I didn't watch today, but I enjoyed your reviews. What bothers me is that Joy Behar can go after the easy targets like the Jersey Shore cast but she doesn't have the guts to go against Kate. I don't think the Jersey Shore crew are inspiring in the least bit, but it's a heck of a lot easier to go after people who don't have a hellish publicity team and a strict contract than it is to go after Kate...who really is much more despicable. Joy should be more offended as a mother to share a stage with Kate than she is as an Italian and share it with young kids who really haven't hurt anyone.

I didn't watch the show, but when I saw what the show was going to be about the idea crossed my mind that just maybe they were going to try and send this crazy woman a message without rustling her feathers too badly. I guess by your above post she didn't get their message. Duh! That was the narcissist coming out in her again. I guess she really thinks she is a blond!

tigerfan said...

Kate says if you knew HER (not the tabloid version) you would know that she is not a diva. FYI to Kate, its not the people that 'know' you that are calling you a DIVA, its your so called fellow 'co workers' ie the individual(s) that also have a 'job' and 'work', who are reportedly making the claim. Apparantly, Kate's 'diva' like attitude is reserved ONLY for those she feels are less than worthy of getting to 'know' the 'real' Kate.

DWTS cameras I would assume. I don't think they'd want to have to get the permits etc. in Pennsylvania AND California to film the kids. And, I would assume because they are a California based company they'd be held accountable to the current child labor laws out here. And we know how Kate and TLC feel about child labor laws.

silimom said...

The rumor is that Jon is living in Utah at his girlfriend's parents vacation home, huh?

Could be. But I would think the media would be all over that if her were and we'd have seen pics of him wandering around Utah. Maybe he's off writing his own tell all - after all, when Jon was in the spotlight last fall, we all wondered where Kate disappeared to and it turns out she was off writing her latest book. Personally, I hope he's staying local and living with one of his brothers.

Hey PA readers - anyone know? Has anyone seen him out and about in the area?

MayDay said...

Just went over to The View message boards. Is "onemommabyrd" babymomma in disguise? Every other comment on a post about why everyone hates Kate is written by "onemommabyrd" and she/he is defending Kate up the wazoo. Onemomma said Kate had SIXtuplets not SEXtuplets; if you are going to defend Kate then you had better get it straight what she had and if you can not get the word right then just say she had a litter of babies.

Ohio Buckeye said...

Only saw a clip, so maybe I'm misunderstanding: did Dr. Drew state that the reason his tv rehab show cannot be considered exploitive to his patients is because, though they are giving something (sharing their private problems on tv for $), they are also receiving (sobriety)? So, the two-way street makes it a win/win rather than an exploitation of patients?

If this was the gist of his rationale, watch for K8G to begin stating the same 'logic' - 'my kids aren't being exploited because I am giving them all the love, support (and golden platters) they need.'

I don't believe nannies are hired to be teachers on parenting. A nanny is there to look after the kids, not to psychologically evaluate the mother. If she wants to keep her job, I don't think that the nanny would even undertake the challenge of a face-to-face confrontation with the mother of the children, even if she did see what was happening in the household. If she's smart and wants to be employed, she would keep her mouth shut.

"A Saturday Night Live parody of K8 Does The View could be fun"

SNL did a parody of her first View appearance. Kate was played by Taylor Swift. Swift did an OK job, but the writing wasn't really that sharp either. I think Kate is too ridiculous to parody.

2badsosad said...

If this was the gist of his rationale, watch for K8G to begin stating the same 'logic' - 'my kids aren't being exploited because I am giving them all the love, support (and golden platters) they need.'

Kate has already tried to use this 'logic' when she attempted to justify the J & K + 8 reality show by claiming that the trips and adventures were/are 'learning experiences' for her children and the TLC film and camera crew are 'like family'.

Brummygirl said...

I just read over at Z's site and one of the bloggers said when she saw Kate in her pink dress, she was compelled to dust her office as she looked like a swiffer!! ha ha

simplysaid said...

What does everyone make of her comment about the cameras being turned off. What cameras? TLC's cameras filming for her new show or DWTS's cameras filming rehearsal segments.

I find it interesting that the 'paps' are of the ability to acquire photos of Kate's DWTS partner at the Konpound, including photos of him 'playing' with the children, but for some reason have failed in their efforts to capture a photo of the presence of a 'film crew'.

Additionally. I would like to know when Kate Gosselin is going to invite the entire The View audience to the Konpound for a 'get to know me' party to squash the rumors that she has been behaving like a 'diva'.
I like the way Kate dismisses any negative or potentially 'scandelous' allegation by way of 'proof' of the impossible. Any suspicions regarding her infertility or surgically enhanced breasts are protected under the HIPPA law, any suspicions regarding her 'faith' or 'God' approving her decisions and choices in life are between her and 'God', and all it would take to discredit rumors of Kate behaving like a diva is 'get to know her'.

I agree, PA Mom. Perhaps the idea of the intervening nanny comes from the Nanny to the Rescue programs on TV where one is set up as the teacher of the parents. In real life, however, nannies are specialized child care providers
and are under the direction of the parents' house rules.

*******************************
You know, I think you are right. Hadn't thought about it that way.


If the camera crew was truly 'like family,' they'd keep their distance from K8 - THAT's what famiy seems to do when they are related to K8G.

And who can blame them?

And I have no doubt those kids are 'learning'. But what they are likely learning is less than positive life values.

When is she going away??? I mean REALLY AWAAAAAY ?
Seriously.

PJ's momma said...

Yet another lie. When defending herself against the diva accusations, she said this, "I've had a great time with the whole cast. So it's untrue, unfounded, ridiculous. Unfortunately people will read this and believe it. I typically look at it and just laugh because I can't change it."
However, last night Shannon was on Lopez and he tried like heck to get her to say something negative (thanks to whoever posted the link here) and she was very gracious and said she had NEVER MET her and couldn't say a word. Isn't Shannon considered part of the 'whole' cast?

My bet is that TLC and Kate's publicist are hoping her stint on DWTS will clean up her image for the general public.
----
Yesterday I would have agreed with you. But her co-hosting appearance on the View makes me think otherwise. The regular hosts jumped into the reports of Kate's diva behaviour at the outset of the show. That got me thinking that the timing of the diva/obnoxious/frosty DWTS behaviour articles conveniently came out prior to her View stint. I think TLC (and Kate's publicist)in all likelihood planted the diva rumours to get the public all riled up about her and give her something to talk about on the View. I don't think at this point TLC cares what Kate's image is as long as she generates publicity and ratings for them. And since they can no longer sell Kate as a good mother, they probably figure they have nothing to lose by cashing in on her notoriety.
It's very sad, but the Jay Leno/Conan O'brien debacle shows that the television industry is quite ruthless. Profits and ratings come before people.
Also, it was interesting that Kate's new book didn't receive any mention on the View. I guess it's quite obvious that book isn't going to sell well.
And I agree with the posters - the discussion about Jon only served to confirm that he is paying support and involved with the children. Once again, her attempt at taking the high road has backfired for her.

and are under the direction of the parents' house rules.

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

In a normal family, under normal circumstances, a nanny works with the parents as a partner, or under the parents' direction as a third set of hands and cares for the children when the parents cannot be there because of other obligations.

Many nannies with years of experience are asked by their employers to offer their thoughts and theories on child development issues that arise.

Generally, it is the parents who are more secure in their desire to be good parents who are willing to ask for input from nannies who may have been working with children for years (or even decades) longer than the parents have BEEN parents. Experience counts in the minds of parents who hire experienced nannies.

As has been said here, the nannies Kate hires do not appear old enough to have much experience. IMO, this fits in nicely with Kate's desire to always be right about everything. Kate wouldn't hire a nanny who had more experience with children than she herself does.

And I bet not one of the dozens of professional nannies I know would actually be willing to work for Kate (even if Kate was just an anonymous Mom of Multiples) because it would be clear from the start that Kate wanted a warm body, not a professional nanny who might have ideas and experiences and thoughts to share that might help Kate become a better parent.

And none of the professional nannies I know would feel comfortable stepping into a TV series like Nanny 911 or Super Nanny either, because there's a difference between gently suggesting alternative parenting ideas to an employer and **telling** an employer how to raise their kids.

Debbie said...

mooselake said I have never posted before but I have been reading all you post for almost a year everyday. Its is refreshing to find people who see right thur Kate's FAKE LIFE and Her LIES.It BLOWS my mind what anyone sees in her.She is no mother she is only out for FAME! Like one of your blogger said is so true she would sell her kids baby teeth for money!! I found something online tonite that answers some question for me when it comes to Kate and the bodyguard if they are having a Fling and now I would say YES THEY ARE!!! Look at the Video on Sky.com of them getting out of a stretch Limo he gets out then out of the same side same door she comes out .They sure are sitting every close. Also He gets out tucking his shirt in and as she comes out her eyes are rolling all over the place like someone who just got caught!!If My husband crawl out of the back of a Limo with her like that he would not be working for her no longer and I breaks his Legs !!Also check out the Her hair BANGS they are short!! SHE is wearing a wig on the View Today! Thanks keep up good work!

TooSadToWatch said...

For what it's worth, a person on another board said she saw Jon on a flight to Utah at the end of Jan. He was seated in first class.

IDModo said...

I still believe that there are nannies out there, like Nanny Deb, who have the ethical background and moral fibre (Canadian spelling!)to confront bad parenting, even at the risk of their job. The alternative is to undermine the parent behind their back, which is something a truly professional nanny would not do.Otherwise these caregivers should not be called Nannies, but baby-sitters, which is what they probably are.Another case of inflating the truth to look more "upper class"? Nice try Kate.

Debbie said...

Mooselake said, Wanted to give more info on the video on Kate and her Bodyguard climing out of the back of A stretch Limo. It was on SKY.com, If you google Kate gosselin it is under SEE KATE'S DANCER BODY on Sky.com. I would say the video want be there long before her PR people will take it down. THANKS

********
We know that is true from the clip. She can't even be serious and act professionally. She just stares at him with this goofy look and when she screws up she laughs when nothing is even funny. Yep, it's going to be very awkward to see her try to do a romantic dance and make it believable! She could not even pretend that at her own wedding.

Annies said...

She looked real uncomfortable when the crux of addicted women centered a lot on bad parenting and absentee parenting and divorced parents.

I am a local. Every week the Reading Eagle publishes deadbeat Dad's names for not paying their child support. Ain't seen Jon's name yet.

And the first dance they are doing is the Viennese Waltz said by DWTS to be the easiest one performed on the show.

observer said...

I'm not a viewer of the view, but reading about it, if she said don't believe the tabloids or gossip stories... isn't rol one too? so now we are told not to believe rol, because that's not the real kate...right? Maybe she should have said to only believe rol, because tlc and my pr team have it right. Also, if she has a dance floor in her basement, why did we only see a picture of plywood coming in and how high is her basement ceiling? They could have moved the kitchen table, the ceiling upstairs is higher,( if he can lift her and swing her). This woman has no charisma, I hope the young mothers don't fall for this bait and switch scheme they're playing. I hope she fails, not because she is parent, because she is a lie. She is made up and transformed but when she opens her mouth....no deal, nope, nada. IMO!

Barbara in VA said...

Yep, Dr. Drew, that does it for me, too, concerning your credibility.

Mama Mia said...

I commented on the DWTS website ( Meet the Stars ) yesterday and low and behold, this morning my comment has been removed. It wasn't even that bad, compared to others that are still up. Just basically said she needs to downsize her high maintenance lifestyle and to please get off my tv.

Oh, and I mentioned her treating Jon like a dog and leaving Joel on the laundry room floor when he was sick.

The comment stayed up half the day yesterday and this morning it was gone.

The weird thing is that there are worse comments there that have been left up. Maybe I struck a nerve with the Jon and Joel thing?

Laurie said...

Kate's answers to the rumor that she's behaving like a diva is 'get to know me'. Kate my dear, we have gotten to know you through your show. Since you've always said it was the "realest reality show" and that no one was acting (especially not the children), you've shown yourself to be a diva and a bitch. We've also gotten to know you through other venues that show you spanking your child, mashing another child's mouth and denying one child water....worse than being a bitch and a diva you are a bad mother.

Anne said...

Seriously, how ridiculous does this outfit look between Joy and Elizabeth? http://justjared.buzznet.com/photo-gallery/2435306/kate-gosselin-the-view-02/

And no ROL posters, I'm not jellus (BTW it's jealous).

Ohio Buckeye said...

It was a passive aggressive work of art the way K8 demurely answered (after a dramatically pregnant pause) "We're here to talk about DWTS" - implying without actually saying it that her kids' dad is irresponsible and not living up to his support payments. This way she gets to imply a slam at Jon without having to take personal responsibility for actually having done so. And THIS is being a 'high road taker' to this woman??? IMO, the questions were scripted and merely a set up for K8 to answer in a way that is supposed to improve her image.

Here's one simple truth: all things related to K8G are PR hype, or, as known is other necks of the woods, unadulterated b.s.

Ugh to K8G and her minions, including hosts who are willing to sell their own credibility to help K8G play PR-Opoly.

Ohio Buckeye said...

"Get to know me"???? Seriously???

Since K8G professed J&K+8 to be 'the realest reality show on tv,' who was it but YOU, K8, that we got to know??

Is this woman completely incapable of comprehending her own contradictions?

Anne said...

Apparently Kate's DWTS co-stars don't exactly agree with her statement about how wonderfully she got along with everyone.

Mark Ballas (one of the pros) says on US magazine's site that Kate was "standoffish". Perhaps polite way of saying bitchy?

Mona said...

Oh, where to begin. It is so very disheartening to see Kate once again disrespect the father of her children. How is it being a "high-road taker" when she implies that Jon is not there for his children, and that he is a deadbeat father?
A "high-road taker", not to mention a mature adult and mother would take questions head-on and not use gestures and inuendo to do her talking.
Here's the high-road answer, Kate. "Jon was with the kids last week. They love him and enjoy when he's there" Here's what you implied, Kate. *Shrug/eyebrow arch/head tilt* "He's there when he's there".
Here's how you answer a question about his financially supporting his family (yes, his family, you're not a singe mom, you are a divorced woman who is co-parenting). "I know Jon loves OUR children and we have a court-mandated financial agreement that I'm confident will be honored".
That's how you hold the father of your kids up in public. But no, Kate, you decided to resort to coyness which should be reserved for a 12 year-old girl. Changing the subject isn't the high road. It speaks VOLUMES.
And, your children are listening.
Shame on you.
Oh, and I hope (seriously, I do) that one day, when your children are grown, that they do not cut you out of their and their children's lives because "you did the best you could".

she is evil said...

But Kate, we don't want to get to know you. GO HOME. You are out of your league on dwts. You are not a star. You are not even b-list. No one likes you, not even your own children. Don't you get it?

Phoebe said...

The whole Carrie Ann Peniche debacle was the last straw regarding any Dr. Drew credibility for me.

Mystical said...

Hope all saw the end of the View, when Kate make that hmmmp sound at the end when Whoopi thanked Kate for being a guest on their show. Then Kate made some smirks and added her evil, ugly, yet subdued laugh. She was mad about something.....probably didn't think she got enough attention. I cannot stand or tolerate Kate in any way. She makes me sick.

steph said...

I haven't posted on here before but have been reading for months now.

I found this: http://somuchmorethanamom.com/2009/04/16/narcissistic-mothers/

It's a very interesting read about narcissistic mothers.

I have a narcissistic mother-in-law and I swear I could write a book about her, ugh. Her and Kate are the exact same person, so alike it is just scary.

gisele lamy said...

Ontario Maman

Being on March break from school, I saw the View which featured Kate as a guest host. My problem was not with her lack of participation, but on how she did not dress age appropriate. I don't understand why Kate would wear a mini dress when she knew she would have to sit next to much smaller women. Her legs and ankles are very heavy set and looked even bigger next to the other hosts sitting right next to her. I would think, that she would try to minimise this and not accent them on national tv.

IcallitasIseeIT said...

I am sure Kate will need to do the talk show round again soon after DWTS to push her book. That's probably why it was not mentioned yesterday, she needs to milk it for another round of freebie outfits and travel.

I could not bear to watch until the end.
If I were Kate i would have been very uncomfortable. I kinda feel sorry for her.

The subject of that show had nothing to do with Kate nor anything she could relate to.

Noone told her how great she looked- hair, physique (despite having 8 kids and sacrificing all the time)

Noone spoke about looking forward to seeing her on dwts and voting for her.

None asked about the kids. How she was handling them being schoolage etc.

The show's guests were seasoned
people who too seek out to extend their minutes of fame.

They had real issues to share and probably didn't care for some lady (who had some kids 5 years ago) reading a pre-determined question from a card to them.

The real hosts did their job and seemed to ignore kate. They didnt even ease up a little to let the newbie get a chance.

Maybe Kate felt what we see- the hosts are just tolerating her as its part of their job- they dont love her.

Maybe Kate felt what we see- that she is just a puppet/product of tlc and was placed on the view to attract attention for the view and dwts... as Joy said re Kate "its ratings"

If the couch had swallowed kate during the show would anyone have even noticed?

money talks said...

IMO, ABC and TLC are cut from the same cloth. ABC can take a woman who is a known diva, who abuses her husband and exploits her kids, and give her money to dance and to go on the View. If you follow the Casey Anthony Case, you may know that this "mother" has had a huge team of lawyers despite the fact that she had no job. In a hearing today it was confirmed that she got the original $$$ to pay a lawyer by selling photos and videos of Caylee to ABC who wined and dined her while she was out on bail.

See if the video is up of her attorney testifying as to how he got paid...on the right side of the page.

ABC is even more despicable that TLC at this point!

MBach said...

Kate/hate does not care if you watch to hate her, or watch to love her.

Just so you keep watching her!

Vanessa said...

Does anyone else think she was a bit less cocky than the last time whe was on? When Whoopi was either pretending, or she really didn't know how many kids Kate has, I expected her to roll her eyes and ask "Have you not seen my show??!!" But alas, no such saracasm. She was coached to tone down the attitude I'm sure.
She kept looking at her cue cards the whole time! She'd shake her foot a teeny bit and then stop abruptly. Then start again and stop it again. She has no skills or charisma in this line of work.
Dull as a doorknob, UNLESS she's talking about herself, then of course she truly sparkles (gag)

Besides, what kind of financial contribution could Jon make that would even make a dent in what is cost to run that household? He's under contract with TLC and I'm sure they garnish his salary to go directly into her claws.
Great post whoever said that his name hasn't been published with all the other deadbeat dads in their area (can't believe they do that!)

Wasn't she quoted in the People article that he comes to HER house? She got the house in the settlement, shouldn't SHE have to pay for it????

Rose said...

I have to wonder why Kate is so adament on walking from one talk show to the next, and from one magazine cover to another, trying to pursuade everyone what a good mom she is, how she pounces on her cell phone every single time her kids call while she's on the road, and how she'll manning the parenting ship all on her own without Jon. Sounds like Her Highness needs more convincing than all of us combined. I may not know her personally, but I know enough to realize when a mother is running around looking for constant validation, and when she's just shutting her mouth and doing it without worrying about getting the accolades. You want to show us what a good mom you are, Kate? Then just go home and DO IT, like the millions of moms around the world who don't have cameras to praise their every action.

Sorry for the (utube) vs. youtube. I didn't know there was a difference. Hope no one went there.
Also, I keep thinking to myself that I hope that Tony and his wife have a VERY VERY strong marriage. I don't know much about him, he seems like a sweet guy. I just hope he is 150% dedicated to his family, especially during these next few weeks.

Seems to me it's been shut down.

Katezilla with a weave said...

I'm not sure which thread to post this on.

Professional DWTS dancers have never said anything remotely negative about the celebrities in the past until KATE! Check out this US weekly article. Mark Ballas, who is one of the most level headed and sweet dancers, mentions that Kate was "stand offish" when he met her.

http://www.usmagazine.com/moviestvmusic/news/kate-gosselin-is-pretty-standoffish-dwts-mark-ballas-says-2010183

So there is some credibility to her diva behavior on set after all. Why should we be surprised anyway? Didn't that one director from the Educational Conference write an open letter to call her out on her rude and smug behavior.

angelpat1 said...

Hi all, I read here alot when Kate clogs up my TV. I was thinking about DWTS today and remembered something VERY interesting. Back in 2008, Pamela Anderson was promoting her reality show Pam: Girl on the Loose. I remembered her speaking out against Denise Richards' decision to go to court insisting Charlie allow filming of their kids for her reality show. Also a british celeb named Jordan, who Pam said was famous only for using her kids. I looked, and was able to find an article. Pam says she loves cameras and is an exhibitionist, but filming children is "the lowest of the low"! Now, I hardly find Pam to be a moral compass, but I find it an ironic choice for a cast mate. They both have love for the camera, bottled blonde hair, plastic boobs, and annoying laughs, but who would have thought that Pam would be the one with the sense to do whats right by her babies. Ha Ha Ha...Imagine that! I've provided a link. http://www.theinsider.com/news/1264404_Pamela_Anderson_I_ve_no_idea_how_Jordan_became_famous

Pamela Anderson was on Ellen today so this is just the DWTS candidates making the talk show. Khate is just another part of the promotion - nothing special about her - she, as well as the others are doing the rounds.

I just looked at recent photos on JustJared. I think she makes the boobyguard dress in matchy-matchy colors! In the current pics, they are both in pale blue tops/shirts.

In other recent photos, they were both in dark blue colors.

Maybe coincidence? I'm going to see how often they turn up in matching/coordinating colors!

Jane in California said...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gaIki9CUvbI

For the person who asked, this is a brief clip of Kate & Tony rehearsing. She couldn't even handle adding a turn while doing the box step. She also seems extremely uncomfortable on a hold position (which doesn't surprise me as I don't think she likes being touched or touching other people). You can already hear the bitchy tone in her voice. "Ahhh! What are you doing?" "It's not fair getting me all dizzy while I'm trying to concentrate."

Tony is laughing uncomfortably. I kind of feel sorry for the guy even though I'm still rankled over his "Kate is setting a great example for mothers everywhere" comment.

Vanessa said...

Katezilla,

She snubbed them, didn't thank them, basically was a DIVA back in the day.

Ohio Buckeye said...

As an RN, K8G could've been pivotal in elevating The View's usual inane 'interview' about addiction into what BarbaraW likes to pretend The View is: an honest and edifying report on addiction and its treatment.

As an RN K8G could've asked serious questions about basic treatment plans, medications used in treatment, what defines treatment success and, based on that definition, what the success rate is for in-house rehab.

Instead, she mumbled something about 'women are addicts more than men?'. Wow, K8G, way to be probing and just pull that enlightening info out of the guest.

The fact that The View had her sitting there with her own scripted lines just like they do with at least Elisabeth speaks volumes about how producers of The View VIEW K8G. She was only, to use her own phrase, "panel JEWELRY".

Diane Sawyer and Katie Couric: you can sleep in peace 2night because your jobs are clearly in no danger from Can Do K8.

sillimom, your good post hit the nail on the head! The double standard - I starting asking, out loud, as soon as their show started, why it was OK for her to slap Jon all the time?

How would the love offerings and the advertisers and media types fawn over this couple if it was JON hitting KATE all the time? What if JON giggled and slapped and said HE was just kidding? And then slapped some more and told HER not to whine about it because it was unattractive?

WHY HAS IT BEEN OK FOR HER TO HIT HIM? Because in some cases spousal abuse is ok? Why do women in the media think this was OK?

Have the sheeple ever answered for her on that one?

And I'm tellin' you guys, she is slapping Tony by now.

She finally gets out looking bleary-eyed.

Reading some of the posts about Khate slapping Jon and wondering if she is slapping Tony.. well this is what I remember very clear.. She SLAPPED EMERIL. Remember when he was FORCED to go over to their house to cook for them ( some crossover action for tlc and food network Kate was on Ace of Cake's shortly after ) she not only slapped him she slapped him with a spatula much like the way she uses the spoon on her kids. And then she LAUGHED about it once he called her out on it.. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? When I watched the show in the beginning I HATED how she did that to Jon and she thinks its so cute.. Well lady I got news for ya its NOT CUTE..Its abuse black and white abuse. I would give ANYTHING for her to hit me like that. She would NEVER know what hit her.. lol

I tevoed the view, and watched Kate. She is just such a loser. She can't engage in any conversation unless it is about her. You see that she was so bored with the attention the guest were receiving about there addictions. She really could have cared less. But in the beginning of the show she was all happy when they were talking about her. When she asked a question, it was as if she was told what to ask. They didn't come from her heart,or her head.
This may have been posted before, and if so sorry, but where did they, get the information about her behavior on DWTS. Of course she denied it. but, it seems funny to me that the general consensus about her, is always the same. She is cold, aloof, self centered, etc.. She just keeps making a bigger fool out of herself.
I have to say though, that I will tevo DWTS just to see her fall on her face. So there you have it, it's all about ratings. I have never watched that show, but I will now just to see her fail.It doesn't matter if people love or hate her, she brings ratings.

How would the love offerings and the advertisers and media types fawn over this couple if it was JON hitting KATE all the time? What if JON giggled and slapped and said HE was just kidding?

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Jeez-louise. Can you imagine if HE squeezed her lips to say words.
Or screamed at her for not putting a bill in the drawer.

It was an abusive atmosphere.

Look how he shuts down when Nancy Grace yells at him a bit. He gets flustered, tries to fend for himself and then we see his lawyer patting him on the back.

Canadian Mom said...

So there is some credibility to her diva behavior on set after all. Why should we be surprised anyway?

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

I personally don't need any validation for what I already knew:

Kate is a bitch.

But isn't being 'right' awesome?


* yes, my handbasket is packed and ready for my descent :)

Sooo.....Kate is only 'mean and awful' when she doesn't like someone??

WTH is that??

Ahh Kate, the next Ms. CongeniBITCHity...

I believe we have just witnessed the end of Kate's co-hosting days. She was the worst I've seen of anyone. Every other person they have on there joins the conversations about hot topics, not just themselves. They are included more and welcomed more. She tanked. Period. No one there could stand her.

And why is it that no other contestants on DWTS are having to get defended all over the place? You do not, for example, see anyone saying, "No, Erin is not a shrew" or "Yes, Shannon was very nice", etc. It's only Kate. ha.

Katezilla with a weave said...

Did anyone watch Joy Behar's interview with figure skater Johnny Weir today (Thursday)? It was on her CNN show.

Joy asked about his previous comment regarding Kate's behavior at the charity ice show. He said Kate was very late, rude and acted like how you would imagine a "celebrity" would act (but when you actually meet them, they're nice - apparently not in Kate's case). When Joy asked, why would Kate be "nice" all of a sudden, Johnny said it was a defense mechanism (I cant remember the exact words- but I cheered). I love that Johnny does not sugar coat. I can't find the video online and was hoping someone could locate it and post it here.

Before & after The View, 2 times this week, we got to see Kate "visiting/playing" with her kids in the driveway so cameras can click away, but of course we see the Nanny there both times, and Kate is usually in the driveway ONLY to go or come from the tanning/nail salon. Those kids are just in her way. BAD MOM, BAD MOM, BAD MOM.

Dorothy Grimes said...

Tony Dovolani is my new Hero. At last someone willing to tell the Truth about Kate. Kate and silver stilletos or as we called pointed toes "roach killers." Actually a great choice for Kate, honestly.

Whatever happened to Kate wanting her children to live by the 'Golden Rule'. A while back Kate posted a 'blog' on the Gosselin ORGINAL website about a day when she was reading her children a book (Berstein Bear) about treating others like you would want them to treat you ie Golden Rule. Well now we know why Kate acts so 'mean and awful'. Her over sized EGO simply DOESNT LIKE ANY ONE!

Dorothy Grimes said...

Had to add to other comment - I live in PA and if a spouse is under court order to pay support and doesn't the spouse is in contempt of court. This means spouse could sit in jail until money is paid. I had a husband [?] who was always late. I would go to judicial support and ask that he be jailed. Of course, they tried to talk me out of it. I eventually had his pay garnisheed. One other matter, Jon is supporting a charity/hospital. Some time back I say a video of Jon entering a hospital with toys. Anyone have a clue?

NT said...

Why do they say that Kate is the highest paid cast member ever????? What world are we in?????

Why doesn't she wear pants and cover her flaws? It's easy to minimise cankles by covering them up, especially when sitting right next to slimer women.

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

WOWZA! How out of place she looks next to Elisabeth and Joy, both appropriately and conservatively dressed. And yeah, if I had nasty cankles I wouldn't constantly display them as Kate does.

"one of these things is not like the other..."

Thanks for sharing that gem of a photo!

Arrrrrrrrggggggghhhhhhhhhh
Just when I think I can't stand this woman any more than I already do....

Boy was she cocky.

PA is 2,400 miles from LA. On the show she said she is 3,000 miles away and in this video she says she's 4,000 miles away. Good lord this woman is nauseating.

She has no charisma, no personality and is just flat out UNLIKEABLE!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, and that new hair is just stooooopid. Looks like the girl from That 70's Show.

( I think Bill Geddes wants to bone her.)

Ontario Mama said...

Today on the view,Whoopie refers to someone she can't stand in which she is forced to interact with sporatically.'She makes my skin crawl! I can't stand her!' All the other women on the show laughed as if they knew who she was talking about. Any guesses on who she is referring to?

rural mom said...

I was expecting Kate to use the View to impress the audience with how hard she has been training for DWTS, but she didn't mention one blister or bruise or sore ligament. Hope Tony can dance around her shuffling and leaning and glazed smiling at the camera.

kate's an idiot said...

Regarding her appearance in tne View, Kate may just be stupid. At the very least, she is lazy, unprepared and unenlightened. This will be interesting watching her branch out beyond the protective arms of TLC. She doesn't appear to be practicing her dancing much. And ABC ain't gonna dance for her or edit out her clumsiness. Those big chunky legs don't look good for much else besides clomp, clomp, clomping. Heh heh.
