Mon, April 5, DWTS Third Dancing Show Lasso that Paso

Screen caps in the order of how they amused me. Well if Kate can't get her leg in the air, poor Tony will have to do it for her. I admit she pointed a toe tonight.


Feet? I have feet and they are supposed to be doing something. Now exactly what was that?

Yeah, I am Boadicea on top and Charo in a cheap skirt on the bottom. No one can tell me the dress designer does not despise her. What is with that mess of hair and the clown makeup again?

More screencaps available at http://jonandkateplus8snark.blogspot.com/2010/04/dancing-with-non-star.html


Kate did manage somewhat to look mad but she failed stomping. How could she?



Rumor has it Kate is doing Paso Doble. That is possibly the best dance for Kate out of all the choices. She knows how to look mad and stomp.

Oh goodie, we get to see Kate, the nobody, once again, desperately trying to be somebody. Give it up. Hopefully she stomps right off the stage.

I'm going to go puke now.

Bonnie said...

Now that she's survived the first eilmination do you think she's thinking....

"they like me, they really like me"

"darn, I so wanted to go home"

"or I really am a star"

I've been searching for a clip of the moment when they announced Shannon was off the show and Kate started screeching like white trash. Does anyone have a link? I missed that part. Thanks!

In my head, I hear that annoying lady that Chandler on "Friends" dated going, "OH. MY. GAWD."

You know, Kate & Jon will always have their issues. But, FOR THE KIDS, she should really leave the drama for behind closed doors from here on out. She needs to remember that Jon is the FATHER OF HER CHILDREN. She CHOSE him as her husband and she CHOSE to have children with him. They BOTH made a mess of their marriage.

In 10 years, all that will matter are her children and their happiness. Is blasting their father going to make them happy? She needs to think beyond today; exploiting her family for a quick buck is a sad way to make a living.

Jen K said...

So even the story of the dance has to be about her personally....God forbid she try to think out of the box and pretend other people/stories exist too.

She's quite the dim bulb, isn't she?

Susan said...

Well, there's a big difference between the passion of the paso doble and Katie Irene's juvenile dramatics. The judge's remarks about needing to create believable characters in dance were well placed and remember: "I don't get it!" - which is not at all likely to change.

I'm sure Kate is thrilled -- she'll finally have an excuse to start hitting Tony and ordering him around.

Poor Tony.

silimom said...

Jon and Kate themed dance, huh? Gee Kate. How original. You astound me with your ingenuity and creativity. But I guess playing yourself is all your capable of. I suppose Tony has just thrown in the towel in terms of trying to help you learn to express yourself through dance. You can't squeeze blood from a stone.

rural mom said...

They should warm up the audience with You Tube videos of Tony's past partners just so they can appreciate how truly horrid Kate is and why she needs to be sent home. The judges don't even try to judge her performances, there is nothing to judge, she is incapable of even doing the routines. I expect there will be a lot of stomping around and time wasters, Tony really doesn't have much choice, Kate is a real dancing dud.

KHATE said...

I feel like this is a dance that would be MUCH easier for Kate to learn. What do you think?

maggie said...

I thought EVERYTHING Kate did was for the benefit of her kids. So next week, according to E online, Kate and Tony will be dancing to the story of her breakup of her marriage and Jon's acting out aftermath. Tony will be playing the part of Jon and Kate will be playing the part of herself. They both promise much, much drama!!

Remember that Kate told the producers a mere 2 weeks ago that she didn't want Jon on the set of DWTS. Doesn't everyone remember that Kate was thrilled to start the new year of 2010 as Clean Slate Kate and wiped her hands and memory of Jon. Kate stated that she did not want to be associated with the antics of Jon. It was purposed in the first 2 episodes of DWTS that the name of Jon wasn't even mentioned. They introduced Kate as a reality tv mom not as "reality star of the tv show "Jon and Kate Plus 8".

Now when she is in a desperate spot, she is going to re-live and bring to life all the ugly happenings of Jon's acting out in 2009. What 40 to 50 magazine covers covering their divorce & "their messes" of their ugly lifestlyes of 2009 wasn't enough for Kate? In June, 2009, Jon and Kate BOTH used their pending seperation to garner high ratings on their tv show by highly advertising to the public that a "big announcement" would follow on their show. That episode of Jon and Kate Plus 8 got a ratings of 9.8 million viewers tuned in to watch the destruction of their marriage.

Now, because Kate can't dance and is in a frightening place on DWTS, she will USE her kids father for laughter and high drama to re-tell the break-up and aftermath of her kids parents divorce ONCE AGAIN!

Please, judges and the public, I don't care how well she dances this week or how funny their dance may be, please see it for what it is. Kate using Jon and her 8 children once again for ratings and drama just like she did on her tv show J&K Plus 8 when they highly advertised and promised a "big announcement" of seperation, divorce, and destruction of a family unit.

Kate is more of a disgrace that a thought possibly. Please post this message on all the boards.

Please protect the Gosselin 8.

Jane in CA said...

So Tony & Kate will be doing the paso doble? (Was it just a joke about the River Dance? If so, still very funny!)

I just watched a youtube of Julianne and Apolo doing a paso doble - and it was terrific.

My question -- will Kate play the bull fighter's role, and Tony the cape?

Gimme Gimme said...

That dance is very technical as is the scoring. I thought I was going to be physically sick when I saw that her story is going to be Tony playing Jon and they are going to portray the divorce.

Also when she was on Showbiz talking about how she brings in the ratings blah blah and everybody knows it and blah blah. I thought Tony was going to be sick as well.

I looked at the video of the dance. How is she going to work a story of the divorce into that. She is going to do the paparazzi..who is she trying to kid.

capslock said...

Kate's ACTUAL QUOTE after she found out she was safe ON CAMERA (aired on Showbiz Tonight): "Love Me, Hate Me, I'm bringing in the ratings." Unbelievable. WHAT AN EGO!!

KatesDancingHooves said...

In these Access Hollywood backstage interviews, she just wont shut up!! ME ME ME...The other contestants say something quick & they're done. Kate is just digging a bigger hole for herself by yapping. Now all of America gets to see what a shallow NUT this woman is. Keep digging Kate!

PA Mom of 2 said...

It doesnt matter how badly she does next Monday--she's won't get voted off no matter what. Im done watching...sorry DWTS, you're in for a nightmare and losing viewers

Susan said...

Well, there's a big difference between the passion of the paso doble and Katie Irene's juvenile dramatics.
---------------------------------------

You're not kidding & boy is she ever going to butcher that dance. LOL! it's going to look messy & probably not resemble the actual Paso Doble much. They need to find a dance where she just stands there. Maybe they could do a dance about the witch burnings in the middle ages, then they can just tie her to a stake & Tony can dance all around her, pretty much like he's doing now.

Can't See Sheep said...

KatesDancingFlintstoneFeet said...
Ummm. excuse me? How did she plan a 3rd dance? Tony looked in shock & then the interview cut-off. WHOOPS!! DWTS IS FIXED. I will no longer watch. They are going to get into some hot water for this, lose viewers etc.
--------------------------

I figured TLC would make sure she was guaranteed a certain number weeks before they let her sign anything. I'm just wondering how many she's there for. She won't be gone next week, they'll let Buzz or someone else go, but after than I mean if it's obvious it's rigged things will probably get ugly & it'll likely be evident in the judges that she's been there too long. Yes, it's fun to watch her humiliate herself, but it's feeding her ego far too much, time for katie to go.

More Kate spin!!

jonandkatewho? said...

Gosh, I just hate Kate so much. I mean I really do! What a nasty, clueless, egotistical and selfish whore she is. Using the busted marriage as a plot line for her next dance....all for the kids, right? Plenty of drama? Oh, I would bet the kids will just love that, especially if her partner portrays Jon as a loser or in a humorous way at the expense of Jon. Surely he won't do that, will he? He seems like a nice classy guy, I hope he won't go along with anything that might deliberately make fun of Jon.

I just don't get it. Why is she not gone? Why does she keep coming back time after time? Is she really bringing in ratings? Is it people who really like the witch or is it so they can see her make a fool of herself?

I just cannot stand her. I have to say too that I don't really agree with people voting to keep her on just to see her fail. It encourages her and makes her think she really is a celebrity.

Anastasia said...

I honestly didn't think I could hate her more than I do, but if this paso doble is indeed acting out the story of her divorce, then I officially wish bad things on this excuse of a human being.

Why?

HER. KIDS. That's THEIR DAD she's bashing. That's THEIR DAD she was talking about when she made fun of his penis. And now? This?

I almost can't believe Tony would agree to this. It seems very beneath him.

Wow. I will continue to vote for the dancer I like best: Niecy Nash. But I am going to have some seriously un-Christian thoughts about this despicable awful hideous creature from here on out.

Anonymous said...

People are voting for Kate just to see how humiliating this show will be for her. The thing I can't understand is she keeps saying that she's not a performer or an athlete. THEN WHY THE HECK IS SHE ON THIS SHOW!!! If I wanted to watch a "regular" person dancing, I can go to my nearest rec center and watch "regular" people who don't know how to dance. I don't go there and don't want to see it on TV either! Kate needs to go away, but like a cockaroach, she keeps coming back where she isn't wanted...and that's on my TV!

crazy said...

She said she's glad she didnt get voted off so the kids could continue to watch on Monday nights and eat pop corn.

And now she's going to bash their dad..on tv..again.

fake said...

Talking about it for weeks. YOu have been plotting to bash Jon through a dance for weeks?

So much for having a few days to practice

I knew she must be guaranteed a certain number of weeks.

GoPoshGo said...

Let's just hope Tony is sporting a cup next Monday, lest his balls end up in Kate's big black bag along with Jon's and Steve's.

readerlady said...

I don't see how in the world the story of Kk's last 2 years will fit into the paso doble. How does being a beeyotch and driving off your husband translate into a bullfighter and a cape? Khate as the bullfighter, manipulating Tony the way she did Jon? That reverses the traditional roles in the dance, and that definitely wouldn't go over well with Len, who is all about tradition. The bullfighter is the dominant figure in the dance, but I don't see how they can make it about Khate and still put Tony as the central figure. Or maybe I'm not imaginative enough. At any rate, this is beyond tacky. "All for my kids" my Aunt Fannie. This is Khate's idea of "funny" and a way to get revenge on Jon. I hope it backfires bigtime. I hate to see Tony caught in the crossfire, but if he actually agrees to this, then he's not the class act I thought he was, and he deserves what he gets.

Re voting - I threw my votes to Buzz this week, but I'm willing to throw them to Pamela next week, although I'm not a fan of her. What say you, fellow GWOPers? Should we start a revolution?

Hate that Kate said...

That is just terrible if they are going to do a dance based off the divorce. And she's going to let her kids watch it?

She really truly is a horrible and unfit parent if she does this.

I'm not a huge fan of Judge Judy, but she has it right when she says of divorced couples: You have to love your kids more than you hate your ex.

mmorrill1 said...

From what I've read tonight, Tony and Kate will be reenacting something from the ast two years of Kate's life - not necessarily about Jon. Given the dance will be a paso doble, I immediately envisioned Tony portraying a paparazzi (like someone else mentioned), and Kate having a love/hate dance with him as she destroys the doble to the tune of Lady Gaga's hit song. After all, this idea totally fits into Kate's "all about me" choices of music thus far on the show.

I feel so sorry for her kids.

kart with a weave said...

I believe the Jon&K8 dance speculation was started by Kart's ever industrious publicists. Not that I think Kart is above such a tacky display, but I believe her handlers would rein her in for this one. As much as I despise their approach to marketing, they are accomplishing exactly what they want - just look how many posts there are about the possibility on this blog alone.

Skywatcher said...

I agree w/ so many of the posts that I don't remember everyone’s name. I too am a Christian and I have been thinking WAY too many un-Christian like thoughts. My son (who attends a Christian school) asked me this afternoon if Khate was eliminated last night. He couldn't believe it when I said no (he only saw the dancing segment). I told him ‘watching you and your friends dance by jumping in circles and acting goofy, is more true and entertaining than anything Khate will every be (on DWTS or in her life). So sad.

My point being, Khate’s children WILL see this one day and never forget what she/Khate portrayed about them or their father. Is this what she wants her children to remember about her on DWTS? Remember, the internet will never go away Khate! It isn’t the 80’s (like your hair this week) when there wasn’t an internet. Anything you or your minions put out there will always be there for everyone (your kids included) to see…forever. It doesn’t matter if TLC removes it temporarily…someone out there has saved it and it will appear again…one day.

I pray for Tony and his strength. It is sad that his professional career could be riding on his contract with this show (including your abuse, insults and lies). But, like all of us have at one time or another, had to walk away from something we didn’t agree or believe in. It may hurt for awhile, but being at peace with your self and sleeping at night, might be better than a paycheck with the devil.

Tony, I only speak for myself, but I believe most of us here at GWOP would stand up for you and do all we could to help you if you needed/wanted to walk away from DWTS and Khate. I know I have enough contacts to help. Selling your soul is never worth it. We all have to face someone bigger than ABC one day….even Khate.

Gabs said...

I like the pictures of Tony and Kate in the car outside her mansion. He looks good. I do have to wonder if all the back and forth on the airplane, dancing on different dancefloors is hurting them though. I think they (she) would probably be better at dancing if they stayed in one place and trained on one floor. Maybe she should hit a bar on the way to the studio next week and have a shot.

silimom said...

Everyone *please* *listen* - you're letting her and her PR machine get you worked up for nothing, just like they did over the kids at the airport ruse.

They are going to do a scene to the song "Paparazzi" by Lady GaGa. Kate couldn't keep DWTS a secret when she was on Leno nor could she keep this song a secret - it's the one she sang to him. As Bruno has said twice now, she's not an actress and we all know she's not even a very good liar. They are NOT going to do a scene involving Jon.

Just sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. The world is seeing the type of person Kate is. Tony is either being a) very professional or b) is as big a diva as she is. I like to think the former.

Pam nailed it whens she said "She's a nobody." That's why the rest of the cast is so perplexed by the vitriol she engenders. They had no idea or only a vague sense of who she was to begin with. She's probably being extra nice right now to the fellow celebs and trying to make a good impression and to be honest Kate is good at superficial first impressions.

What she doesn't take into account is that everyone else is too busy with their own dances to worry about Kate or to be overly concerned for her anyway. The only ones who care about Kate are Kate and her children.

Yes, fellow GWOPers, they do care. She is their mother, for good or bad. And they love her and they are a part of her. We all need to remember to respect that, even if we can't respect Kate (myself first and foremost). I speak from experience being the child of a mother with mental health issues.

Laurie said...

I've got the perfect dance for her, she can be the May pole and the G8 can put on their new dancing shoes and dance around her. She won't have to move and maybe all that ribbon will also gag her!

I agree with mmorrill1 and I think the dance is going to be based on the paparazzi.

If the show is fixed word will get around the cast and DWTS may find it hard to book people in the future. I think she'll be on for at least two more dances.

Finally, her "Love Me, Hate Me, I'M bringing in the ratings." must have really endeared her to her castmates....her ego is the size of her feet to think that people are only watching because she's on.

Silimom, thanks for being a voice of reason, "Everyone *please* *listen* - you're letting her and her PR machine get you worked up for nothing, just like they did over the kids at the airport ruse." You're right. The Kate-DWTS spectacle is pushing a lot of hot buttons and some of us are too quick to bite, falling right into the claws of the PR monster.

I needed that. Your posts are usually dead-on. Time to calm down. Kate's just not worth it.

Oh didn't you know, when Kate and Toni do it, HE will be the cape and she will be the matador, remember she likes to sweep the floor with her men. You can just see her stomping around dragging the poor guy around with her.

Jo said...

I'm not sure who was more upset when they remained this week - Tony or Kate...

I think Kate must be miserable. Absolutely miserable. And, frankly, I'm loving that idea.

Work her hard, Tony. Make her cry.

Or...quit. We'd love to see you quit and force someone else to work with her. Then they would quit too, and so on and so on and so on...Now THAT's good TV!

Jo said...

There's no way they are going to do a dance about her marriage and break-up. With the exception of Kate, there can not possibly be one person there who thinks that is a good idea.

"Tell a story" doesn't mean tell YOUR story. I think Len meant pick a character, become that person, tell his/her story. I'm thinking musical theatre-ish - only with ballroom dances.

If they seriously do a dance about Jon and Kate, the audience will watch dumbfounded with mouths agape and the silence following would be deafening. The producers and Tony would never allow it.

Jo said...

Sorry folks...I'm verbose tonight...

I don't understand the excuse Kate gets of "not being a performer". As someone has pointed out, Jake is not a performer. Chad is not a performer. Buzz is not a performer. Although Chad may have football talent, none of those above have any known "talent" as far as singing/dancing/acting that would have prepared them for DWTS.

What they do have is personality. And perseverance and pride. Oh, I see, when Carrie Ann keeps saying "performer" she's thinking of these other P words.

As much time as Kate as spent on camera, she should have learned something by now about performing. The fact that she has not, and can't even put a genuine smile on her face, clearly shows that she is just completely hopeless. Just hopeless. Sorry, Kate, no Emmy/Oscar for you.

Another thing...I truly can not imagine how one can spend 6 hours a day for 6 days practicing and not learn the steps. That's 36 hours! I'm not talking about how graceful one looks doing them, but just memorizing them and knowing what you are doing. Especially when after a few dances, you should start to get a sense of the types of steps: spins, ball changes, etc. You use those in ALL dances. Kate can't even remember that you always start on the right foot - a fundamental in dancing.

For me, there is NO WAY she is practicing as much as she says she is. Oh, she may be in the studio 6 hours a day, but I bet half of it is spent whining, crying, stomping and taking a break. If she WORKED for 6 hours a day, she would at least know the steps.

I know sometimes the professionals will bring in other professionals for some extra help during rehearsal. I would love to see him bring in Cheryl, girl would rip Kate to shreds.

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

Yes, I think you've figured it out. I totally remember when Leno asked her what her favorite song was, that she answered by singing a bit of "Paparazzi". And, since Khate always talks about the terrible paparazzi following her everywhere, because she's just SO famous and so fascinating (you know, she even needs a bodyguard, lol), she's going to love acting out this little bit.

Just like we've seen on DWTS in the past, the less a "star" can actually dance, the more the dance routines rely on drama, acting, and entertaining the audience and less on actual dancing. The problem is that I really don't think Khate can even pull that off.

Hey, does anyone think she'll even don one of those infamous (and fugly) Kate Gosselin Halloween costume wigs? I could totally see that. That horrible haircut was her only other claim to fame, other than having 8 kids....did you all know she has EIGHT kids, yup, she's a MOTHER of EIGHT kids....lol.

Can't See Sheep said...

Thanks to all of you who posted the links to the Paso Doble performances, they were nothing short of stunning to watch. I weep & giggle when I think how kate is going to massacre this dance. The girl didn't have enough passion to preform the jive, she's never going to have the fire needed to preform any Spanish dance, you really do need passion. That's just it, kate has no passion for dancing, her only passion is money, so short of her getting a dress made out of 1000 dollar bills to do her performance in, her Paso is going to be more carved up than Easter ham.

Clearly from what I've been seeing the beast's ego is growing. I think Tony is just trying to be professional through this, remember he only has to deal with kate for so long then she's out of his life & I doubt they'll be chums after all is said & done. that's probably why he doesn't want hate & stuff on his page. A couple of months & then poof, kate should be out of his life. He probably be just wants to get through it with as little pain as necessary. Yes, I'm hoping because I'd seriously hate to find out he's a total prat.

My votes will be going to Pam this week, I just can't stand the thought of Pam leaving before kate, that would be way too much of an ego trip for kate. She's a better dancer & mother than kate. It's bad enough that Shannen had to go before kate, but her partner does need to rest his injury.

Nobody Likes a Narcissist said...

I have to agree with the comments here about Khate being guaranteed a certain number of weeks on DWTS as part of her contract. Earlier tonight, on 15 Minutes Gosselin Style, I posted this comment:

My new theory - Khate has a contract that keeps her there through the first four weeks (she'll be eliminated on Tuesday, April 13th) - just in time to go on her book tour! (I've read that April 13th is the release date). C'mon, we know there's no way she would be able to do DWS, the book tour, and a couple of pit stops in PA to say hi to the kids. I bet that was the plan all along. This show is completely bogus. It is NOT a contest, legally speaking, so they really can do whatever they want. It's purely entertainment and everyone on the show knows that.

jibberjabbers said...

The Paso Doble looks pretty mean. I'm sure Kate will do better with this routine.

I predict a score of 6, 6, 6.

Did you see the portion of the interview where Kate said, "Well, umm, next week we're doing the "Passee,"
and Tony corrected her, saying "It's paso doble,"
courteously leaving the word "MORON!" off the end of the sentence.

Missed a few steps here and there. So what!!
Said the name of the dance wrong: Who cares?

I bring my own little psycho bubble AND psycho babble with me wherever I go.

shoshana said...

I've been reading this site for a couple years now
and posting occasionally, but tonight the comments are so numerous and so totally hilarious that I really wish the it were set up so that we could respond to specific posts as we go along!

Love the image of poor Tony grimacing to drag Kate's "corpse" through his legs and back again. Kate looked simultaneously revolted and petrified that she might
hit something! Priceless - although we know, with Kate the Kart NOTHING comes without a price.

And did you happen to catch the way Kate ran down the steps, with her legs bent and so far apart
it looked like she was wearing a loaded diaper?
Hhahahahahahaaaaaa!!!!!!

shoshana said...

No wonder Kate can't be bothered to learn all those silly little steps.

She can't even remember the name of the dance
they're supposed to be 'perfecting', calling the
renaming the paso doble the "passe."

The only thing that her being on this show proves
is that they support the mentally/morally/physically/
spiritually challenged.

Vanessa said...

But see (in Kate's mind)Pamela has danced in "story style" with the Marilyn Monroe dance. She has used what has made her a "star", why can't Kart?
Maybe this is just one very long April Fools Joke!

KatesDancingFlintstoneFeet said...

So when she was on Jay Leno, expressing her desires to be on DWTS & telling Jay what her favorite song was and she sang a verse, she had already been discussing her 3rd dance with DWTS executives!!! She already knew she'd be on DWTS, and was planning out all her routines! No chance of her getting voted off! Can I hate her even MORE!!
AMAZING what a nasty, tangled web she & TLC weave.

KHATE said...

I feel a big Photo op Easter time coming....to take the sting out of this week. Shove those poor kids out on display.

dustilies said...

First, thanks to sillimom for reminding us that the haze of rumors around the Gosselins is awfully thick these days.

I looked at a couple of links that y'all posted. Holy hip swivel, Batman! I think the moves here are well beyond KG's abilities.

As is the attitude of the dance. I can just imagine the conversation with the producers:

Producer: Kate, the paso doble is about passion and conflict and we find people do best when they bring their deepest fears and anger and courage into the dance.

Kate: Ummm. I don't get it. That's more than one emotion at a time.

Producer: What story would you want to tell with this dance? What is the seat of your soul? What ditch would you die in? What are your biggest demons?

Kate: Ummm. (long pause) I do it all for the kids?

Producer: Okaaaaaay. The dance is about the push and pull of desire, about wanting to be part of something, about also wanting to be the fullest version of yourself. Where is your life do you feel the deepest love-hate relationship?

Kate: Oh! I know! The P-people!

SAHM said...

Well... this performance should be a natural for Kate... no acting necessary.

My opinion only...I don't think the show is rigged. As far as planning ahead: the pro's and the stars of course are going to plan ahead for their dances. They have to. If they're voted off, then so be it, but they have to plan as if they're going to be there from one week to the next.

I, too, watched Julianne and Apolo's Paso Doble on YouTube...I CANNOT imagine Kate being PASSIONATE! The Paso Doble is my favorite dance and it's THE most passionate of all of the dances. I just can't see her pulling that off. She doesn't have the dancing skills, nor can she 'act'. I can't wait to see her make a fool out of herself once again. :) I do feel terribly sad for Tony, tho.

She said she's glad she didnt get voted off so the kids could continue to watch on Monday nights and eat pop corn.

I am sure you all know this- Kate/hate is a ratings bonanza for any show she is on. People tune in to hate on her, AND tune in to love her.
No one in the industry cares, just as long as people are watching.

Her face sells magazines -Monster Mom, or Can't a Mom have Fun? - for the same reason.

Poor dancing skills or not, she will be on the show for quite some time yet. I would bet at least $.05 on that fact.

Kate/hate MIGHT believe all the attention is because she is loved, but I don't believe she cares one way or the other. I have said it in the past, but here it is again.
Her tombstone will read:
Look at me now!

Great idea! I've been saying that it seems like Pam can't stand Khate and Pam's our only hope as far as a celeb telling us once they're off the show how she really feels about Khate and revealing some of her backstage antics. Oh, I do hope Pam speaks about this one day!

I listen to Howard Stern everyday. If he had Pam on, I'm positive he could care less about Kate Gosselin. She is way off his radar. He doesn't even pronounce Gosselin correctly...haha

Andrea Murdock said...

Did you see the portion of the interview where Kate said, "Well, umm, next week we're doing the "Passee,"
and Tony corrected her, saying "It's paso doble,"
courteously leaving the word "MORON!" off the end of the sentence.

Missed a few steps here and there. So what!!
Said the name of the dance wrong: Who cares?

I bring my own little psycho bubble AND psycho babble with me wherever I go.

----------------
Kate can't admit that she stinks at dancing. She says time after time "I tried my best." REALLY? Because if that is your best you stink to high heaven (or down below) to dance like that. Watching her practice, she has no patience to get through a rehearsal and then to go on live television she panics and forgets the steps altogether and then wants PRAISE for even stepping out on the dance floor.

I say no way will I ever give this woman praise. If I were given the opportunity to learn how to dance with a famous dancer, I would take it BUT by golly I would enjoy every single moment of it and go out on the dance floor, fear or not, looking like a million bucks, not something that the cat dragged in.

gherkin said...

Kate and Tony will dance to Paparazzi. He'll probably have a camera around his neck when he starts out and she'll have one of her Halloween wigs on. At some point, Tony will ditch the camera and Kate will ditch the wig in a very dramatic fashion to showcase her extensions.

I absolutely believe that this is totally rigged. She was "guaranteed" so many weeks from the start of the show. I predict she'll be on at least 3-4 more weeks. A perfect lead-in for the book release and an "all new" Kate Plus Eight.

marce said...

Seeing kate try to look like a star makes me laugh, and nothing about her ever made me laugh...The kids are 9 and 5, what a sad life they must led.. No friends, sports, after school stuff.. Pam Anderson's kids are regular kids, who belong to sports teams, ect..I am sure anyone else who has kids on that show, also make sure there kids have a real childhood. Kate doesn't get it, that just because she has a lot of kids she is no one special anymore.. Now she is just a lousy mom, and people feel sorry for the kids, not the mom who had 6 babies at once and is overwhelmed....Kate is such a mental case, that if she gets voted off or wins, it wont matter to her, she truly believes she is a star. This will all end for her, probably after her little book tour..TlC has put a lot of money and time into her, but what else can she do, she has no talent, no warmth, no personality. She is a joke to real stars, and now the public, see's her true personality. No kids around, no Jon so they can say she is just stressed and vents.. This is Kate, not a nice person, that simple. I love when she says she's a mom, all for the kids.. As all us real mom's know, that includes running around with the kids, trying to be in 2 places at one time, sitting and cheering them on with sports, music, dance, whatever the kids are into at whatever stage of there life... she know nothing about being a real mom except she gave birth. Dogs also give birth...

Taniqua said...

I wonder what the Sheeples' families must think of their insane obsession with Kate Gosselin. My husband would have me in counseling if I spent every waking moment obsessing over Queen Kate and becoming delusional just by the sight of her.

I've learned there's no trick to ignoring Kate if you are truly sick of her. Don't watch DWTS. Don't click on links to stories about her. Jesus. But sheeple live to love/stalk her. I guess maybe I don't get it because I have, you know, a a life, but who wants to waste so much time and energy starting I LOVE KATE BLOGS about some woman you don't even know? Who cares? This is what makes me think Kate needs those bodyguards its her fans she is afraid of. People who take things about a stranger's life so personally are the exact kind of people I'm afraid would do something crazy.
Its Kate Gosselin's fans that are scary.

Buzz Off Kate said...

Funny how she loves throwing the word paparazzi around. She loves to tell people how important she is. If she actually does use that song she is sinking her own boat. People are on to her little game. It is quite obvious she doesn't get followed around by the "P" people unless they are on TLC payrolls. You don't see TMZ following her or any other mags. Just radaronline. Sad sad if you have to create your own buzz Kate.

Gotta B Right said...

Although I do believe the children are involved in extracurricular activities, there is no way Kate attends. In her mind she is way too important to do such a task. After all, she needs to put food on the table. (yeah right).

But I do believe the children aren't stuck at home all the time. The babysitter/nanny makes sure they attend their events and church.

Laurie said...

I also listen to Howard Stern everyday and agree that Kate is not even on his radar - however - he loves Pam and loves DWTS. I think that he'd want to hear all the backstage gossip on everyone. I don't watch DWTS but will throw my votes to Pam.

JFaye said...

Sound like anyone we know?

"People with narcissistic behavior cannot handle criticism in any way and feel that they are being made wrong. They are supersensitive to criticism and either attack the other person or they leave the scene. This blaming the person who gives criticism helps the person with narcissistic defenses avoid feeling guilt, shame and depression but it also keeps them from taking responsibility for learning from their mistakes and ultimately from growing up.

They can pout and give the silent treatment or hold grudges. This combination of these defenses that distort reality often set them up for failure in partnerships.

When the narcissistic traits are too severe and causes havoc in the lives of others, there is a disorder. Narcissistic Personality Disorder happens when a person’s outlook is so distorted to the extent that they do not see reality as it is and cannot see the needs of other people. These people are the takers of the world leaving pain and destruction in their wake. If their behavior is left unchecked, they become con artists, manipulators, sociopaths and dictators."

Too bad the court did not require both parents to undergo pyschological testing. Kate would have flunked.

she is evil said...

I am convinced that Kate is truly D-U-M-B. From her inability to ad lib to her retardation with learning how to dance to the stupid things that come out of her mouth. I think she yells, screams, and picks fights as a way to divert the attention away from her laziness or when she is wrong or is too dull to get it right (as in the dance steps). She's right... Tony isn't taking into account how she learns. (Pssst, Tony, she is really really really dumb. Try talking slower)

Gimme Gimme said...

I think Carrie Ann telling Kate she was not a performer was a nice way of saying you are not a star.

Kate always puts the blame on someone else. We know that Jon couldn't even breathe correctly. Now, Tony can't teach correctly. I'm seeing a common denominator. And it's Kate.

ToTheMoonAlice said...

Just watched some past "paso doble" routines from DWTS...There is NO WAY on this earth (or any other planet in the galaxy) that Kate "I've Got a Stick Up My Butt" Gosselin can do that dance!!! It takes passion, grace, agility, and confidence...none of which Kate possesses. Heck, she couldn't wiggle her hips if she was strapped to a Tilt-a-Whirl!

WARNING: This is gonna be one AWESOMELY bad thing...Please do not attempt to watch unless you are buckled into your seat...Otherwise, you may injure yourself as you fall on the floor in hysterics.

ughugh said...

"I think that's why I wanted to do this, to surround myself with people that are on TV, and [who] behind the scenes are normal, just like me," Gosselin told us. "Everybody's sweet, you don't want to see anyone go, we're like a family."

Let's hope for all their sakes, not her family.

No, honey, "The Passe" is what we hope you will be very, very soon.

Teryn said...

It's the Impasable Doble for Kate.

She's dreamin' again if she thinks she can improve with this one.

These judges aren't gonna baby her forever and treat her with kid gloves much longer. When better dancers are leaving and she's still there crying "I'm not a performer", they will start hammering her. She's gonna roll her eyes one too many times and they'll have had enough.

"Poor Tony. God love him, but he just didn't know how to help me. When you have 8 kids, it's a rare thing to know how to help me. Did I mention 8 kids? Tony just never had to teach someone with 8 kids before. Eight!!! With me making casseroles at 5am and tending to the kids' needs first and traveling 16,479 miles each week, he just didn't know...bless his heart".

Fufuss said...

I know what Kart has said about the dance being about her life for the last year,but I just can't figure out how anything has to do with doing the Paso Doble. (I must not have an imagination).--I think that "being about her life" crap is just that, crap...a red herring possibly, thinking that would stir interest & peeps will watch.
--Kart will suck at this dance...she has no passion & is devoid of any true feelings for anyone or anything but herself.
---People want to see a trainwreck ...want a good laugh, I understand. But please don't vote for her. It only feeds her already monsterous ego & celebs who are working hard, trying hard &deserve votes are going to be voted off ...for what? So Kart can think she's wonderful, bringing the ratings or irreplacable?
Vanish from sight, Kart!

IDModo said...

When Kate was asked about her feelings about Shannen leaving the show, did you notice that she turned it all around to be about her: hating to see
anybody go, because that's why she's on the show, to meet people who are normal JUST LIKE HER - nothing about Shannen of course unless it pertained to Kate's own huge ego. This is a classic narcissist pose.She does this a lot, appropriating others' emotional reactions to compare to her similar, but more important, ones.. She's emotional Kudzu.

pinkdiamond611 said...

I wonder when Khate Kart will utilize that pink wig she wore in the popcorn episode. Looks better than her current hair. ;-) I am going to figure out how to vote as many times as possible for Pam. It is a win-win in so many ways if Pam beats Khate Kart.

Laurie said...

I apologize if someone has already posted this link from myfoxphilly but here's the article with the producer of the show saying kate may be the biggest name this year. I wonder how the other cast members feel about that....once the show is over I'm sure that someone will speak out about this.

http://tinyurl.com/yekfjx2

readerlady said...

I can't believe I'm actually defending Khate here, but I don't think it's stupidity that makes her forget that she should lead with her right foot. Remember, she's left handed. I'm left handed, and I can tell you that leading with your right foot goes counterproductive to everything that you learn to do. I still have to stop and think and mentally picture any activity that requires me to go right, lead right, use my right. It makes for awkwardness and lack of speed. It takes twice as long to learn anything, especially if the person teaching you is right handed. However, I can't see her learning to execute a dance as complex as a paso doble, even if she were right handed. She's just not willing to do the work involved.

mmorrill1 said...

From what I've read tonight, Tony and Kate will be reenacting something from the ast two years of Kate's life - not necessarily about Jon. Given the dance will be a paso doble, I immediately envisioned Tony portraying a paparazzi (like someone else mentioned), and Kate having a love/hate dance with him as she destroys the doble to the tune of Lady Gaga's hit song. After all, this idea totally fits into Kate's "all about me" choices of music thus far on the show.


I like that theory. I'm also thinking they won't actually portray Jon in the dance - I really hope they don't. I had another idea of Kate portraying the innocent victim who is now a single wife. Tony would be something like an uplifting presence, to pick her up off the floor when she's down. That kind of dance would play to Kate's non-talents, allowing her to get by with slouching around all sad and wounded. But now that I've seen what the paso doble looks like, I'm not sure that kind of dance would fit. However it turns out in the end, J&K's fate is a horrible idea for a dance.

Didn't she say on the first show when asked if the kids were watching that night, that NO, it was too late. Now she says they are watching the live telecast. Stepford Kart has been caught in so many lies. She simply blurts out what is on her mind at that moment (No, I would never let my kids stay up late.)

If you can't back up what you say, with what you actually do, you a liar. Kate, the liar is not only never there for her kids, but rather only for her own selfish pursuits of fame and fortune. People who still believe at this juncture that her kids come first, are lying to themselves or are actually too stupid to see that her words NEVER match her actions. How many lies and smoke screens can people believe?

Very sad for her children that they never really come first. Since she continues to put herself in the spotlight, come hell or highwater, even her kids should be able to figure this out, if they haven't already. Very sad for the kids.

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

Maybe she's going to use the anger she had at Jon for not wanting to do another season as passion in the Paso Doble. You know all that oh so justifiable anger she has because all she wanted to do was continue to exploit the kids & he didn't. She came that close to having to work a REAL job, instead of spending her days of leisure bellowing from her white plastic throne.

I really just wish she's channel someone interesting, but that'll never happen.

Pony said...

"I do have to wonder if all the back and forth on the airplane, dancing on different dancefloors is hurting them though. I think they (she) would probably be better at dancing if they stayed in one place and trained on one floor."

As a former dancer, albeit ballet and jazz, not ballroom dancing, I don't think the issue is the different floors. Dancers typically practice in one place and perform in another. The travel is undoubtedly an issue, however. Every time they fly cross country they essentially lose at least a day, if not two. And bless her heart, Kate cannot afford to lose any practice time at all.

I too believe that all the dancers knew from the beginning which dances they'd be learning. There is too much lead time before the first dance and not enough afterwards to learn them all.

Shoshana said...

I was just trying to pick up reading where I left off last night and realized I posted three (3) comments
last night - in a row!

So I apologize. Didn't realize they'd all go up on the board so close together but, man, was I disgusted by Wide-Stance Kate and her incredibly incredible
incredibleness and the utter gall that woman has.

And the comments here have been priceless!!!!!!
Thanks, everyone, for giving us a place to vent
and to laugh, before we blow our brains out...

Oh, and also - I think when Kate first made a comment about her "dance" story, she said it is going to be about her life 'the last two years.' In later versions, she changed it to "this last year."
That makes me feel certain that their will be about
the paparazzi following her, her, her. Poor little
famous Kate.

FREE TONY, indeed.

Kate's a homely idiot said...

Wait, didn't katan say she was doing this show to teach her kids to face their fears? (in a half-assed fashion?). Now she's claiming she's doing the show because she wanted to surround herself with all these other performers who are just like her? Sheesh. Too dumb to keep her stories straight. And way to show your kids to tackle an obstacle: without preparation and practice, by blaming others for your difficulties and by paying attention to how you look rather than your hard work. The great irony is that Katan looks awful and old (and dirty somehow, I think it's the hair and obvious spray tan).

Hippie Chick said...

cdnmom47 said...

My opinion only...I don't think the show is rigged. As far as planning ahead: the pro's and the stars of course are going to plan ahead for their dances. They have to. If they're voted off, then so be it, but they have to plan as if they're going to be there from one week to the next.

__________________________________

I agree. I think they have to plan week to week. Kate however, will crash and burn. There is no way she will have the passion, vigor, or skill to do this dance. She butchered her dances the 1st 2 weeks. This all just leaves me speechless. I have been voting for Shannen, Niecy and Pam. I was sorry to see Shannen go, when she obviously worked so hard, and Kate just does the bare minimum to get by. Kate, GO HOME!! You suck!!

Jen K said...

Right, because no one else there (Pam Anderson, Bachelor Jake, or Erin Matthews) has EVER had to deal with the p-people....

Good thing Kate chose something original for her dance and that would relate ONLY to her. How much thought went into that one?

If she was smart (and that's a big IF) she would stop trying to trade on Jon and Kate Plus Eight, the kids, the paps, etc and break free of that external stuff. A smart manager would tell her to ignore that stuff and use something else to set her apart that would also be relatable.

Venturing out past her own self-centered viewpoint and trying to come up with a dance that, dare I say, made her seem more cerebral would have been a better choice.

If she really wanted a "career" (gag!) she would need to get rid of this schtick she has as the harried mom of eight who is followed by the paps she has on speed-dial.

Her "brand" is that she's a bitchy mom on TV. No one really deep down likes that...not even the fans, in my opinion. I think they wish she was more likable. The best thing she could do is stop playing the "bitchy mom on tv" and try to be Kate, whomever that really is.

Unfortunately, what I think we would see is that Kate is so one-dimensional and so inept at thinking outside herself that we would simply see "Kate, the bitchy person".

And acting? Puleeze. You actually have to have an emotion chip to do that.

Gimme Gimme said...

I don't think she really knows what those kids do when she is not there. We all know from her own mouth that she went for weeks without talking to them or even to Jon when he was there taking care of them. She only took calls that her "gut" told her were emergencies. What a cad.

I just still can't believe that she is going to showcase her divorce to the kids to watch while they have their "popcorn." The woman is just not wrapped right. That is just sick.

Gimme Gimme said...

And another thing that I find purely disgusting is that she would try to get Tony fired when he is a dad supporting his children just like she is a mom supporting her kids. Doesn't he have twins or something?

zoey said...

well, the sweet irony would be.. if we finally get rid of Kate when she does her "jon and kate" dance.
Jon was able to rid himself of her so perhaps we will too!

"I just still can't believe that she is going to showcase her divorce to the kids to watch while they have their "popcorn." The woman is just not wrapped right. That is just sick."

SHE'S NOT! It will be a dance about the paps, not Jon and not the divorce!

shecan'tdance said...

Kart is the worst female dancing competitor in the history of DWTS. I've watched every season. Tony will be thankful when the red hot mess is eliminated and he can get back to real dancing. Using gimmicks will not help her performance (i.e., paparazzi dance stories, Paparazzi song, shared birthday with Lady Gaga). Hopefully, DWTS and ABC will put her on first (can't keep her children up so late) and they will put this lame horse down sooner than later.

lifeoriley said...

I can see Kate attempting to do an angry Paso Doble, but it'll still end up looking like a POSEUR Doble!

I don't know if the show is rigged or not, but I believe that scores and voting %s can be tweaked if its close. Judges are paid by the show--if not outright told what score to give, then maybe influenced? Kate's Jive should have gotten 3s, to be generous--she missed so many steps it was a joke.
If everything was on the up and up, why not release the voting numbers? Also, all research surveys/polls have a margin of error + or -; the producers can nudge things in someone's favor. Also, no one audits these things--so who is to know?
Maybe I'm totally wrong and Kate was kept on by the audience voting---but I still think the judges scores were too kind.

BMWoP said...

Here's what chaps my hiney about Kate ( well....one of MANY things that chaps me about Kate )...

She "says" she's all about reality shows capturing the good, bad and ugly. With the Tony fight, she said, "Why sugarcoat this? It happened. They ( ABC ) caught it and used it and then we move on.". She says what you see is wht you get ( with her ). "
I'm from the world of reality tv!!!"

THEN, she talks out the other side of her a$$ and says crap like, "It was only 30 seconds of a great week." or "What you see of our show is only a tiny part of our lives and the rest is just wonderful and great." "If you meet the real me, it's not the person the media portrays".


So.....which is it? It can't be both ways.

You ( Kate ) are either the unsugarcoated/what you see is what you get person WE SEE on tv, or you are a character that the media created based on a few minutes of film footage and we aren't to take it seriously. You can't have it both ways.

We see what we see. We see a woman having meltdowns and tantrums, being rude, and arrogant. Are we really supposed to believe this footage is edited to make her appear this way and none of it really happened the way we saw it? She didn't really stomp her feet and whine like a baby and say "I'm done" like a 3 year old? That the incident appeared worse on camera than it really was and we ( the viewers ) made a big deal out of nothing?

I don't know about you all, but to me that's insulting our intelligence.

On another note...
I laughed my butt off when Pamela Anderson's hairstylist said Kate's hair is awful and looks like someone attached a dried up loofah to the back of her head.

KyPastor said...

Years ago when I was in Seminary I
had Clinical Pastoral Education in an inpatient mental health facility. One of our jobs was to figure out a way to socialize the patients, get them out of their rooms more. So, I decided to teach
square dancing. I knew NOTHING about square dancing.

So, I went to the library (no internet at that time, you undersand) and got a book and some
other visual aides to learn the basic steps. Those steps would be used over and over again no matter what dance we were doing. I could call out "promenade left" or "swing your partner" at any point and the patients would know exactly what to do. It worked with mental health inpatients very well.

It seems to me that if Kate had
months of advance knowledge of her
time on Dancing/stars, she might have found it very useful to learn the basic steps of the various dances on her own, even before meeting Tony. So, even if her pro partner put the basic steps into a complicated series, she would still know what to do when he called out a specific step to her. Of course there would be new things to learn, but it would not be such a bombardment of info all at once.

Perhaps the contestants are discouraged from doing that. Or perhaps it seemed like a whole lot of work when there was no particular reason for work at that moment.

kate can only be kate, she's not ever going to be able to be anyone other than herself. That kind of character play requires empathy, creativity & imagination, kate has zero.

About kate's little paparazzi dance, look for her to start comparing herself to Princess Diana in this respect, I have a feeling it's going to happen. That little katie will see herself as being as hunted by the paparazzi as the world famous Princess, after all she has blonde hair & blue eyes too.

Never mind that kate calls her paid paparazzi. Look at all the REAL paparazzi the other's there have had to deal with. What a joke she is & still too stupid to realize she's way out of her league. She doesn't begin to compare to the others. Unfortunately I think her ego's expanded 3 sizes more.

Holy cow Gimme Gimme, that part hadn't even occurred to me, doh! you're so right. But then Tony's kids aren't hers & so they don't deserve to eat from platter's like hers do, her children are the only children that matter in the entire world. The only reason kate's children matter is because they are HER children. I'm willing to be that steve's kids don't matter much to her either.

A Fan of Kate G, BUT.... said...

The Gosselins
.
Kate - I am a fan of Kate Gosselin and the first two weeks of DWTS I voted for Kate multiple times via internet, home phone, cell and texting. However, Kate was horrible last week! If she wants to be on TV she has to smile even when she doesn't want to. If she does not improve considerably I will probably not watch DWTS anymore or I'll vote fot Niecy Nash. Many other supporters of Kate have also feel the same as I do.
.
Jon - I don't like grown folks that don't take responsibilty for their decisions/actions. Why can't Jon be independent? I don't understand why he is chronically unemployed. The kids know Jon loves them. I want Jon to be a better role model by doing the following; get some job training to enhance his skillset, get a job, get a place big enough for kids to stay over night, find a woman that will appreciate him. One more thing, if I were Jon there is no way in hell I would stay in the apt over Kate's garage. I'd be at a motel or my own place.

It worked with mental health inpatients very well.

It seems to me that if Kate had
months of advance knowledge of her
time on Dancing/stars, she might have found it very useful to learn the basic steps of the various dances on her own, even before meeting Tony.

Here's the thing, though. Khate thinks she is going to win because she is Khate, not because of any skill. She thinks SHE usurps any skill that anyone else has. Didn't she say in the post-dance interview this week (may have been last week) that she wasn't trying for perfection?

I'm thinking the judges are probably appalled at her performances. (and I'm also thinking they are told to not score her lowest) In all the seasons of DWTS, everyone has put in the time and tried to dance. Not the shopping Khart. I really think that is why Carrie Anne has mentioned "you are not a performer" both weeks.

Khate is above being a performer. She has heard the ABC casting director call her "the biggest star."

Go ahead, ABC, let her have enough rope to hog tie herself!

Tami...

I didn't think about the character. They asked them to act and play a character and she is going to play herself. That should be a demerit on scoring.

But then again they punished Pamela for dancing in character with Marilyn Monroe. She could have danced better but she was being Marilyn the whole evening and danced the way Marilyn may have danced. She did a great job and they gave her low scores snd then came out everyone to be in character next time and Kate is going to be herself. Who has she been all this other time if not Kate. The judges need to get their act straight. They are obviously manipulating the numbers.

"And another thing that I find purely disgusting is that she would try to get Tony fired when he is a dad supporting his children just like she is a mom supporting her kids. Doesn't he have twins or something?"

Is there real factual evidence that shows that Kate tried to get Tony fired, or is this rumor? Just making sure I'm not missing something...

maggie said...

I hope the dance won't be about Jon and Kate and their divorce. Everyone is probably correct about the paparazzi and her singing it on the Leno show.

But in the Access Hollywood interview about this week's elimination, after Kate mentioned that she loved the song that they would be dancing to next week, Tony made the comment "It is definitely something that happens in everyday life". Then Kate follows his comment stating its been my life for the past 2 years.

So, how can we connect Tony's comment about it is definitely something that happens in everyday life to be followed around by the paparazzi? Being followed around by the papparazzi isn't something that happens in everyday life. It doesn't make sense.

Tony is always mentioning that he doesn't understand the hate, rumors, and lies for Kate. Could the sony possibly be about that?

BeDoneNow said...

Kart clearly has never listened to the LYRICS of 'Paparazzi', because they are about the wanna-be star chasing the photogs, not the other way around. It's about fame-whoring.

Listen to the lyrics, all of them, and read Lady Gaga's statements about the song.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paparazzi_(Lady_Gaga_song)

MeMe MeKate said...

Kart constantly claims her kids are her focus, when they clearly are not, she chooses to be away from them for her own selfish pursuits (ie- if the book was so great, it would sell itself, not needing all of these "appearances."

DWTS- She has had nannies for quite a while, but now thinks this pursuit justifies this. Hello- if you would think of your kids for one moment, you would realize giving Jon more time with the kids, rather than the nannies, might be BEST for your kids, you moron. Kates simply does not wish for the kids to be seen with Jon as she still wishes for him to be viewed as the absentee parent,to justify the nannies.

Jon needs to step up to the plate, no Court would order nannies to watch the kids rather than the parent be with them. TLC has used many tactics with Jon, and Kate tries to pretend she is spending much more time with the kids than she actually does, but if she is a SUPER MOM, why would she even need a nanny when she is there. I am talking well before DWTS. I AM THE BEST MOM, BUT CAN NOT HANDLE MY KIDS WHILE I AM HOME ALONE WITH THEM. Contradiction, of course. My mom raised six kids, all by herself, after my father died suddenly, with without nannies, so why is it then that Kate needs nannies while she is home. SUPERMOMS can manage this by either running errands, while kids are in school, or hiring a babysitter, as need be, rather than full time nannies all day every day. Who does that while they are home, if their interest is their kids. And to claim the nannies are better than Jon being there is insane. There has never been any claims that Jon did not take care of or neglect his kids while with them. Shallow Kate simply does not want to do the parenting work. All BS- simply too lazy.

I have had enough of this fame whore, trying to portray herself as the BEST MOM, AND AN EXAMPLE TO OTHERS, when she is clearly never there by choice. Not sure why Jon is allowing this, and he really needs to get a decent reputable lawyer involved with the interest of the kids involved, and step up to the plate.

Jen K said...

BeDoneNow, excellent find!

I copied and pasted from your link on Wikipedia what Lady Gaga said about that song below....hilarious!!!

"Well I'm so glad there are a few different interpretations, that was the idea. The song is about a few different things – it's about my struggles, do I want fame or do I want love? ,It's also about wooing the paparazzi to fall in love with me. It's about the media whoring, if you will, watching ersatzes make fools of themselves to their station. It's a love song for the cameras, but it's also a love song about fame or love – can you have both, or can you only have one?"

I knew the song was about the flip side...a star loving the cameras, but I never thought to find out what it was really about from Lady Gaga's perspective. BeDoneNow, you've hit the motherlode with this one! Great find!

HW said...

There have been a couple of comments stating that surely some of the DWTS cast will speak out about Kate when it's all over.
I have my doubts about that.
Every time she's on a show, NOBODY talks about the real Kate and when reports do leak, we even have people like Meredith Viera negating those reports. The women on the view, Kate's family, Kate's former staff members, clerks at the store she frequents - NOBODY speaks out about what a vile person she is.
I really wish somebody could get to the bottom of this - the hold TLC and Kate have on people that she can tear people down everywhere she goes and nobody gets to talk about it.

kate's an idiot said...

At least Tony's kids are loved and paid attention to by their parents. In that respect, they are richer and luckier than the Gosselin eight will ever be.

Loon Watcher said...

After reading the ROL article about Chelsea Handler hoping Kate's 15 minutes of fame are up (thanks, Lisa, for providing the link), I noticed that someone in the comments said, "I worship Kate."

Kate as someone's god. How sad is that? Talk about a false idol!

Wonder Womb said...

WONDER WOMB

You exude deception as a natural way with your ill-tempered gaze at every display.

Nobody believes your sad tales of woe, but you should believe that you reap what you sow.

Without merit or talent it’s brutal to bear a circle being stuffed into an ill-fitted square.

What can be said that wasn’t stated before about you as a bouncing celebrity bore?

We’ve forgotten the days of self-imposed strife, the victimized wife of an ill-fated life.

So now you feign to embody the pain of someone who suffered for financial gain.

Who can admire your lack of grace, your crooked style and ill-mannered face?

You damage your family like smoke and ash to rise as a phoenix emerging with cash.

Your ill-will towards others and those you eschew cause people to run, unless paid by you.

Family once begged you to stop and take heed of the hatred that breeds from all of your greed.

You’ve showcased no talent, conquered no fear by proving to be the ill-equipped peer.

Spellbound by glamour without admirable fans, you aspire to reach but it’s not in the plans.

For those who dishonour the lives they create will soon face the true meaning of reality K8.

Hmmm, Tony's gonna channel Jon Gosselin for this next dance? Guess he had better practice looking defeated, depressed, and miserable while sitting on a couch as Kate kicks him in the nads. As bad as things may be for Jon now, ANYTHING is better than being married to that cow. FREE TONY!!!

JFaye said...

I remember when Marie Osmond's partner let her decide what they would do for the 'free dance'. It revolved around her doll collection and it was beyond weird and creepy.

I hope Tony doesn't let Kate make the decision, but then again, when has she ever listened to anyone but herself? Maybe he is hoping to get eliminated so he can get out like Jon did.

JFaye said...

"Jon - I don't like grown folks that don't take responsibilty for their decisions/actions. Why can't Jon be independent? I don't understand why he is chronically unemployed. The kids know Jon loves them. I want Jon to be a better role model by doing the following; get some job training to enhance his skillset, get a job, get a place big enough for kids to stay over night, find a woman that will appreciate him. One more thing, if I were Jon there is no way in hell I would stay in the apt over Kate's garage. I'd be at a motel or my own place."

_______

Interesting -- much of your criticisms of Jon could apply to Kate. Perhaps Jon is staying in the apartment over Kate's garage so he is close enough to keep an eye on his children. There are many unemployed people right now as we are in the midst of a recession. You seem to assume that he is not looking for work. Kate has a nursing degree which she isn't using at the moment. Why aren't you upset with her? Just curious at the double standard that seems to exist in your post.

Andrea Murdock said...

"I just still can't believe that she is going to showcase her divorce to the kids to watch while they have their "popcorn." The woman is just not wrapped right. That is just sick."

SHE'S NOT! It will be a dance about the paps, not Jon and not the divorce!

---------
Now that's classic. Playing our your life with the paps. You know the ones you called personally to take pictures of you. No one else gives a hoot about you Kate.

kart with a weave said...

I would like to thank Kart's publicists for unequivocally refuting the age-old adage, "All publicity is good publicity." The obviously planted idea that the Paso Doble will be the story of J&K was the proverbial straw; now I find myself past outrage, disgust or anger, I feel only complete boredom with the whole situation. I don't care anymore, Kart and her antics have lost the ability to move me in any way. I feel such a sense of freedom!

My concern for the children remains, however, and will until their lives are either settled or they reach adulthood in spite of their parents.

boo said...

Everyone's talking about the paso doble being disrespectful to Jon and the Paparazzi lyrics -- but what about her last dance? Have you read the lyrics to "I'm Still Standing?" Also a rude slap at Jon, without regard for her kids' feelings:

You could never know what it's like
Your blood like winter freezes just like ice
And there's a cold lonely light that shines from you

You'll wind up like the wreck you hide behind that mask you use
And did you think this fool could never win
Well look at me, I'm coming back again
I got a taste of love in a simple way
And if you need to know while I'm still standing you just fade away

Don't you know I'm still standing better than I ever did
Looking like a true survivor, feeling like a little kid
I'm still standing after all this time
Picking up the pieces of my life without you on my mind

Once I never could hope to win
You starting down the road leaving me again
The threats you made were meant to cut me down
And if our love was just a circus you'd be a clown by now

Arrrrggggghhhhhh.....This comment from a local makes me CRAZY!!


"Cindy Pavlica, 42, ballroom dancer, Fred Astaire Dance Studio: "Because of the ratings, she'll stay on until near the end. But I don't think she'll win. I give her a lot of credit. She's the only one with no entertainment experience, and that makes a big difference. It's got to be tough on her."


KATE IS NOT THE ONLY ONE WITH NO ENTERTAINMENT EXPERIENCE!

Jake and Buzz are even less experienced than she is. She was a freakin' cheerleader for cripes sake! She just sucks so much worse than anyone else because she's too uptight and bitchy and controlling and doesn't know the meaning of letting loose and having fun. Face it, her idea of excitement and fun is a pedicure and massage...away from her kids.

Silly Sally said...

Kate can wear her Halloween wig and her dance story can be called the "Possum Doble".

She can keep laying down and playing dead while Tony dances around her.

I am not sure about factual but it has been reported by the regular "news" sources that generally report that type of thing. Who knows?

MyHairdresserKNows! said...

Well I finally did something I rarely do (bc I hate to be embarrassed )--- I discussed KHate in public. And BOY the reaction! My hair stylist and I were discussing DWTS yesterday, and I asked him had he been watching THIS season. Before **I** could chime in that I have NOT, and why: he went on a TIRADE re. your fiend and mine: Khate! How ODIOUS she is, what a HORRIBLE PERSON she is (all his words in caps) and how he refuses to watch UNTIL SHE IS OFF. (we then reminisced re. Heather Mills & our similar feelings then).
I was giggling like a schoolgirl! OH and what was funnier, at first he couldn't even remember the "Nobody's" name! He just waved his hands in the air and said..."You know, that woman with all the damn kids!!" LOL! Other adjectives he used were not so....flattering.
We both agreed that she is ugly INSide , and that regaredless of what she tries to do for the OUtside, (emphasis on TRIES), she will never be pretty or beautiful because she completely lacks inner qualities. Oh, and HE also thinks that the hairdressers on DWTS are actively trying to screw up the hair! lol (he sees pics on the 'net as I do, b/c we are not watching the show)
I was laughing and grinning like the Chesire cat after talking to him. !

"Being followed around by the papparazzi isn't something that happens in everyday life."

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

In Kate's delusional, pea-sized brain it does. She has completely bought into her own press -- convinced that the boneheads TLC pays to provide photographic evidence that she's in the same zip code as her kids are the real paparazzi. That's right, Kate, a real paparazzo spends his day loitering around nail salons in Reading, PA hoping you'll show up for an appointment. Give me a break.

But, since Kate's convinced that the real paparazzi have been trailing her incessantly for the past 2 years, Monday's dance will likely be Tony playing the part of the "ever-present" paparazzo, stalking Kate as she tries to tan and get her nails done. If the "story" has any truth to it, though, the dance should begin with Kate speed-dialing ROL, delineating her appointments for the day.

ToTheMoonAlice said...

I'm rather beginning to look forward to seeing Kate's "performance" next week. I mean, we KNOW she's gonna stink, right? She'll stink so bad, she'll give new meaning to the word. She'll take us to a whole new level of stink...someplace at once scarey, yet compelling. We won't be able to avert our eyes, but gaze horror-striken at the spectacle, like being caught in the light of an oncoming train. We'll want to scream, and gouge our eyes out, yet be capable of mere whimpers for mercy as we stare into the nightmare that is Kate trying to dance the paso doble. Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, and Gene Kelly will be spinning in their graves. The earth may actually tilt on its axis as Tony heaves her carcass around in a dreadful parody of passionate floorplay. "Ye gods and little fishes," we'll cry, "how much more can we be expected to endure?" as we cringe and cower before this obscene travisty of entertainment.

Oh, the humanity!!!

She'll stink so badly that Tony will need a bath in tomato juice after the show.

I'm rather looking forward to Monday night, for a wonder. I haven't watched DWTS regularly since Kristi Yamaguchi was on. Then I watched because she was amazing. Now I'm watching because Khate is so horrendously horrendous. Come to think of it, I may need a bath in tomato juice after the show!

Sharla said...

Folks, please. No arguing amongst yourselves over what Kate will or won't be dancing to or about on Monday. Until it's shown it's all speculation IMO. Tony and Kate could change it at any time. It's fine to say I think so and so, but not to be nasty or snippy to each other over it. Thank you and Happy Easter/Pascha/Pascua to those who celebrate. Have a good weekend to the others.

Pa Mom Knows said...

When did Kate say she was the only star from PA? In print, or on a live television interview? I must have missed it. Do you have a link? Is she playing with a full deck?

The list omitted Perry Como, immortalized in his hometown of Canonsburg, PA!

Pa Mom Knows said...

Kiki Brum said...

Whilst reading the comments about Kate having Tony fired, I have to think this is just rumor. After all, Tony is the professional here not Kate, plus he is a veteran of this show, not Kate. I don't think she could have anyone "fired" although I can believe she does have the right to not be happy with who she is partnered with just like anyone else (including Tony). That firing bit just adds to the interest in watching Kate fail or succeed, which only raises ABC's ratings.

KatesDancingHooves said...

Looks like Kate called her Paparazzi-friends to come take pictures of her leaving the nail salon. (radaronline)
Funny how its always Kate getting pampered, not the kids. Alexis is made to carry Kate's shoes. Those kids are just her props.

Someone with Kate's money can very easily have someone come to the house to do her nails. It's just one of her photo-ops! And more free Juicy Juice? What is WITH that company?? Do they not read?

WE all know that Tony is the professional and the regular on the show. Kate, however, is so arrogant and delusional about her own star power, that I do believe she tried to get him fired. Kate only wants to be around people who make her look good.
That's why she has no friends, there is nobody on earth with that kind of magical powers.....

**************************
What a great idea. Music and dance are very therapeutic. When the dwts was announced, I hoped that K8 would actually find something that she was enthusiastic about and willing to work on. She could have developed a mind-body connection that she appears to be lacking (among so many other things) that could be helpful in starting to develop an awareness of others. And maybe feel positive emotions from within. Dancing is FUN! Sadly, instead of trying to grow, she let her overdeveloped sense of entitlement and laziness reign supreme once again. What a(nother) wasted opportunity.

grannyoftwo said...

Just saw a video online on the front page of my computer that Kate has a big crush on Jake the bachelor and asked him out on a date...WOW is all I can say. Has she not seen the women he goes out with? The nerve of her thinking she ever comes close to looking anywhere as good as those much younger women look that he goes out with...WOW! Wouldn't you just love to be a fly on the wall when he tells that story to his best buds. Boy oh boy I bet they will laugh about that one for a long time to come and they will probably never let him live that one down...you just keep on making a big fool out of yourself don't you Kate...you just cannot help yourself...as they lift up their drinks.... they are saying.. this laugh is on old Kate....who thought Jake would give her a second look...WOW!

US magazine is reporting that Kate is skipping out on practice too much to tan and get her nails done. "Allegedly" Tony is getting a tad fed up with her lack of commitment.

Makes me upset though that someone who doesn't really care about dancing and who sucks got the priviledge to stay while someone who worked hard, had dedication and seemed to love the experience got the boot.

When will justice be served?

Aimee said...
"You know, Kate & Jon will always have their issues. But, FOR THE KIDS, she should really leave the drama for behind closed doors from here on out. She needs to remember that Jon is the FATHER OF HER CHILDREN. She CHOSE him as her husband and she CHOSE to have children with him. They BOTH made a mess of their marriage."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ah, yes, Aimee. You know that, I know that, and everyone with a quarter of a brain knows that Kate was every bit as responsible for the demise of their marriage as Jon. The sheeple just love using Jon's public behavior as an excuse because it's easy and a quick defense for Kate. But if you ask Kate herself, this is what she would say... "I, um, you know, I did everything I could to, um, keep our family together, and, uh, yeah, I meant those vows, and I kept them, and, uh, you know, he didn't. I need to go to bed at night and know that I, um, did my best for my kids and my family, and, uh, you know, that's what I did."

And that, my friends, is why this monster remains on television and has continually been rewarded for her lying, manipulative behavior. Too many people in the business, particularly women, somehow sympathize with her and use the age-old excuse that she's the one raising the kids and managing the family while Jon does nothing and goes out with all kinds of girls. His reputation adds another tally for her with the whole sympathy vote thing, and I imagine she loves that.

What bugs me is that when there are two sides of an argument presented, some people just assume that one person is right while the other is wrong. Any possibility that both people can be wrong in different ways?? WHEN will people see that?!?

Skyler McCaw said...

Apparently while Katie Irene indulges herself -- what else is new? -- JON is taking care of the kids with "several nannies" and mind-boggling enough "her bodyguard's wife".

What type of sicko open marriage does she and Steve have allowing HIS wife to babysit his mistresses' kids???

And make no mistake about it, Khate and Steve HAVE to be doing the deed together... as sickening a thought as it is!

(((Why))) does she need a bodyguard again??? Who's looking after the kids of Steve and "Mrs. Steve" (sorry, I don't know her name)? Weird web that just gets more complicated.

Cry Me a River said...

Anyone who goes out with Kate should be very careful. It is a known fact that she will yak about their man parts with her friends (except she doesn't have any), family, and the media.

And as an aside TLC is doing their regular morning after damage control. They fed her some good lines on "her" suppposed blog trying to sugar coat everything. Tony is a great teacher, I am bad student and all that. We know those words did not come from her. I am seeing more and more bad press on her. I think she may have sunk on her boat.

I wonder who the boss is of that outfit of baby sitters; most likely the kids. It's just crazy. The only reason she is doing that is because the whole world knows she is gone. She had no worries before when she left them for days on end with the not a nanny flavor of the week. She is such a mean mommie.

She was wearing the first diamond when they announced their separation in June 2009, so she already had a "friend" by then in order to get another diamond last month to mark some sort of anniversary.

Oh, ick, I just read the "Kate's Take" blog on TLC. (Yes, that's really what they decided to call it). There's an official TLC photo of her with long straight hair there that I hope someone pairs with a still from the actual Stepford Wives. Jibberjabbers--are you out there?

As all have said here, this TLC "blog" is so transparent and so focused on cleaning up Kate's public image for later uses.

So, her scary faces on DTWS are really about how SHE is scared (so, so brave, our little Kate). And she is filled with humility in the face of her fans' support. And acknowledges it is the only thing keeping her on the show (how embarrassing is that--like me saying to my students "I know the only reason I have a job is not my talent or knowledge or effectiveness, but just that you wrote nice emails to the dean") AND asks, out of the other side of her mouth that everyone remember to give all their votes to her.

I'm trying to understand her and her choices really extra hard today, as it is Good Friday, but reading this blog gave me no helpful insight into her at all.

DiscoQueen said...

H. Woolard: We all know Tony is the pro there so why would Kate want him fired? After all, he is better than she will ever be. Who do you (we) think she wanted him replaced with? Was there someone she mentioned as a suitable replacement?

Don't forget 'Broadway Joe' Namath, born in Beaver Falls, PA.

Wow, Kate does read this blog! We'd been asking why no paps ever catch her at any airports & TaDaaaa! A picture of her at an airport, smiling with her giant, ugly veneers, and looking age 55!

Scroll to the bottom picture here!

Yeah, that looks like her face is going to crack.

More interesting to me are the photos upstream on that page....
the ones where Kate is barefoot, carrying her shoes. As I recall, she said her high heels are remarkably comfortable to walk in and I recall also her phobias about going barefoot because of germs? So, what gives? Could it be that she, um, didn't quite tell the truth there? Ya think?

2 years exclusive with Stevie Boy?

The first necklace was made by her sister. She makes jewelry for a living. It is probably something special between the two of them.

Shoshanna said...

Katie, dear -

I'm a bit worried.

Which one of the three judges makes you fear for your life? Tell me. Is it that terrorist, Len?
Or did you discover that Tom Bergeron, the convicted felon, is packing heat?

Thank God you have Mr.Grey there, to stand forlornly in a corner while you lick your veneers
with the tip of your forked tongue and exude
coldth.

I've heard that the most dangerous place for anyone to stand is between you and a camera.
If anything, I think it's the other gal contestants
who needs bodyguards.

Not you, dear! Why, you do a great job of keeping people at bay just by being you.

As for Monday, all I can say is: Break a leg!
No, really.
Break. A. Leg.

Somewhat fondly,
Mother (Remember me?)

I can't stop laughing! Ye gods and little fishes! A whole new level of stink!
I am shamelessly stealing these expressions. They are priceless.
And let's not forget that other famous Pennsylvanian:
Punxsutawney Phil! He controls the weather! Kate can't do that . . .

silimom said...

Poor Erin Andrews! She's apparently been receiving email death threats! But no worries, the FBI knows who it is.

Is one of Kate's greatest fans so delusional they'd start threatening other contestants? (Please, don't take that seriously - it's meant as a joke).

Pa Mom Knows said...

"I recall also her phobias about going barefoot because of germs? So, what gives?"

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

Her phobias are about going barefoot on hotel carpets, not outside on the cement or at a gas station (where she was photographed in her bare feet).

She looks huge in that first photo. How much weight has she gained in the past month or so? Is she putting on muscle mass from exercising through dance? She has no waist.

Pa Mom Knows said...

"Don't forget the other musical star from Canonsburg, Bobby Vinton."

Right. I forgot about Bobby Vinton Boulevard and Drive! I wonder if Kate ever heard of Perry's "Catch A Falling Star" (what Tony may end up doing when she trips on stage), or "Blue Velvet!"

Crate Kate said...

Great list of people from PA. There is one more I want to add though. Taylor Swift who is from WYOMISSING! I think she is just a tad more talented than Katie Irene will ever be.

Oh, ick, I just read the "Kate's Take" blog on TLC.

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

Wanna see something really scary?? Check out Kate's fake FB page -- the one with the DWTS photo of her and Tony. It's SO transparent that some TLC intern is just posting random updates on what Kate is doing, along with the occasional reference to how much she loves her kids. What's so sick is that there are 2500+ Sheeple who are "fans" of the page, and who actually send Kate messages there. One disciple's posting: "I'm wholeheartedly rooting for you. I admire your courage, doing Stars cannot be easy for you. You are an inspiration, Kate. Don't ever give up. Your children are very lucky to have such a wonderful mother!"

Do these kool-aid guzzling freaks really think Kate reads their demented posts??? It's almost sad to see how truly gullible they are, believing that this is a FB page that Kate actually reads and/or posts to.

Glad to see Kate's PR team is out in force, covering all bases in their desperate attempt at damage control: FB, Twitter, Kate's blog. Such a joke. We all know Kate's too busy getting mani's and pedi's to bother with such online nonsense. How is she expected to type with wet nails????

. . . with several photos in a row showing her looking crabby, grouchy, pissed off, and frosted. Steve looks pretty absolutely miserable as well.

So why do they do it? Of course the easy answer is money.
But by the time you are about 35 (or 55, depending on actual highway mileage), don't you kind of figure out that if you have taken a job you don't really love for the sake of a good paycheck, it is easier on you (let alone others) to take the most cheerful attitude you can muster?

Oh, that WAS the most cheerful attitude she could muster.

(crickets)
(frown)
(long, audible exhale)

Dang, I would have a smile on my face (and my shoes on my feet) if someone would pay me 200,000 bucks to be a diva and a slacker.

Also, to get weeks or months off of all other duties to work out six hours a day and learn a fun new thing.

*******************************
Disco Queen: I freely admit that I only have information from the comments on this blog. My point was that Kate had apparently TRIED to get Tony fired, not that she was successful. I have no idea who she thought would make a suitable replacement but I'm betting that Kate had not thought that far ahead either. In her mind, she probably thought she could say she wanted him fired and the deed would be done and they'd start bringing in a string of potential replacements. I think Kate wanted him fired because she was unable to learn the dance and Kate does not take responsibility for her own actions. Having Tony fired would take the attention off of her.
This is only my opinion and, again, I state it based on the comments I've read here and from watching the show for four years (I couldn't stomach the final year.)

silimom said...

HW - I think you mean seasons, not years. The show was, remarkably, only on for 2 and 1/2 years. It just felt like longer. I have discovered that, especially in reality tv, seasons mean something completely different now then when I was a kid.

I'm sorry if I'm nitpicking, I just think it's important to realize how short an amount of time they've truly been around. I don't want to give them more credit than they deserve.

Cry Me a River said...

I don't know if there is a connection but BFF wears the exact same necklace - the first one - the second one looks like an upgrade. (the mall pictures of the two of them shopping).

Cry Me a River said...

She looked really po'd in those pics and poor steve following her around like a lost puppy. That was after she found out she got to stay on -- I thought she was all happy by then. Who stuck a fork in her cheerios I wonder.

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

If she was putting on muscle she'd look more toned, girl aint' doing her practices. She should have definitely lost some weight & should be looking a little more toned, not saggy & baggy.

Wowie wow wow, I just saw those picks of kate. (JJ love the one you posted of Jon) kate needs a new dentist the woman has teeth like a horse. Big ol' grass chopping horse teeth. Neigh for the camera kate! Any more tan on that girl & she'll be the poster child for skin cancer. If you don't want your daughters to tan a lot, just show them that pic of kate & tell them that's what it does to you. Gives me the willies!

Rose said...
She needs to remember that Jon is the FATHER OF HER CHILDREN. She CHOSE him as her husband and she CHOSE to have children with him. They BOTH made a mess of their marriage."
------------------------

Honestly Aimee, I'm actually believing that kate thinks of him more like a sperm donor. Jon's a prop in her world & he's out lived his usefulness as far as she's concerned so he must go the way all other who've outlived their usefulness have gone before him.

@boo Wow I didn't know those were the lyrics to "I'm Still Standing". I'm starting to think that they people picking out the music don't like kate too much. Thought it would be an excellent song for Jon to dance to, it'd fit him to a tee.

LetTheTruthBeTold said...

Rumour has it that Kate has the hots for the bachelor , Jake. She has even asked him out without Vienna...boy is she something or what?!
-----------------------------

What, did they hear him running from the set screaming like a little girl. :)

GoPoshGo said...
If the "story" has any truth to it, though, the dance should begin with Kate speed-dialing ROL, delineating her appointments for the day.
---------------------

LOL! That would be great! And more accurate, so we won't see it.

I really can't imagine calling people & telling them where I'll be so they come take pictures of me in Canadian Tire or Home Depot.

Midnight Serenade said...
"Kart clearly has never listened to the LYRICS of 'Paparazzi', because they are about the wanna-be star chasing the photogs, not the other way around. It's about fame-whoring."
--------------------------

Well, given the lyrics to the first two songs, Paparazzi will fit in nicely with the other's she's danced to, none of the lyrics are exactly flattering.

Loon Watcher said...
Kate as someone's god. How sad is that? Talk about a false idol!

Wow, it's not like they could aim any lower is it.

My first thought on seeing that news about Erin Andrews was "Oooh, Kate's gonna be pissed". This is taking attention away from HER.
I also wonder if Erin will get a bodyguard now, but I doubt it. Only Kate needs a bodyguard...

Ohio Buckeye said...

"her sense of humor is so off that she just ends up putting her foot in her mouth -- again."

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

I don't think it's "AGAIN." It seems like it's permanently embedded in there."

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

Foot imbedded in her mouth and stick firmly implanted up her arse: that's our little Katie. NO WONDER she can't dance. Couple that with her complete lack of passion and there you have "K8 Does DWTS".

She is a joke and is willing to pimp herself out as one, so long as the attention and $$$ keep rolling in.

"Famewhore" thy name is Kate Gosselin.

XYZed said...

If Kate's next dance is based on her real life, I expect we'll see a nauseous Tony curled up in a fetal position on the dance stage cleverly designed to look like a laundry room floor. Kate will prance over, do a clumsy pirouette, carelessly toss a blanket on him, and then strut off.

I think that tlc must be paying extra to the literate interns.
If you look at the number of comments posted on rol, the "hot" topics like Tiger and Sandra B. seem to get 20-50 comments per post. Every post about Kart gets over 1,000 and if you read a sample they are quite illiterate and insulting to anyone who criticizes kart. I suspect that a substantial number of these are written by people in paid positions.

You forgot something here. "I did everything I could to, um, in all HONESTY, keep the family together, and to be perfectly HONEST, I meant to keep those vows, and um, if you want to know the HONEST truth, I kept them, and um, quite HONESTLY, he didn't...

HE also thinks that the hairdressers on DWTS are actively trying to screw up the hair! lol (he sees pics on the 'net as I do, b/c we are not watching the show)
I was laughing and grinning like the Chesire cat after talking to him. !
--------------------------
THANK YOU for sharing this, MyHairdresserKnows! I have thought since the very first show that the wardrobe and makeup folks are NOT K8's friends. There is just something .. not QUITE right about her makeup and hair and dresses. Notice this week all the other women looked just lovely in their outfits, while K8's outfit was a little too short, not fitted quite right; the lipstick was a little too red, the hair was too permed - but nothing so obvious that you could accuse any staff of not doing their best. My DH thinks that K8 is so bossy she is probably insisting on something she thinks will look good, and as we all know her taste is questionable at best

Evan Lysacek will be performing with two broken toes he got doing the Jive. He's also performing nightly in Stars on Ice. One has to wonder whether Her Highness would do the same - maybe she would "for my kids."

I dont get it said...

While Kart's paso story will be "Me Me Me", Louis Van Amstel is tweeting that his waltz with Niecy will depict the struggle and victory of the first inter-racial married couple in America. How nice that true entertainers take this opportunity to address issues larger than themselves.

Don't you know she's going for 8 of those things? Oh, the symbolism! Just in case anybody out there forgets she has 8 children! Actually, I think she might be planning on 6 necklaces and two earrings - Mady and Cara are sort of satellite children anyway.

(snark)

Jane in CA said...

From the CMR blurb:
"An inside source tells CMR that the tensions have escalated this week as Kate still tried to do things her way. Tony Dovoloni has been reported to have taken several “time outs” because he is so frustrated with Kate’s attitude and is threatening to quit again. ...

As bad as Kate performed on week 2 of Dancing With The Stars, you would think she would be practicing harder than ever. Seem Kate wants to have all the perks of stardom without actually having to do the work to become a star."

I guess that's better than pulling down his diaper, placing him on the potty and turning off the lights, not to mentioning photographing his "deposits!"

Kate always puts the blame on someone else. We know that Jon couldn't even breathe correctly. Now, Tony can't teach correctly. I'm seeing a common denominator. And it's Kate.

And let's not forget this one........Khate's parents don't know how to help her.
