I wonder if, whenever Kate makes an appearance
on a show, the TLC lawyers make all the parties involved sign a total non-disclosure agreement.

That's why people talk about her with clenched teeth but are too afraid to say anything negative about
the Kueen. Their job could be at stake.

Anybody think so, too?

I don't usually look at ROL but I like Chelsea handler and she is pretty right on! Sorry if someone already posted this:
http://www.radaronline.com/exclusives/2010/04/video-chelsea-handler-hopes-kate-gosselins-15-minutes-fame

In what has to be the most hilarious episode of Larry King Live ever, comedian Chelsea Handler's sharp tongue targets Kate Gosselin and other newsmakers. RadarOnline.com has the video with the best highlights from Thursday night.

The host of E!'s Chelsea Lately said "I don't like people that are famous because of something like that--because she had a lot of children. She doesn't seem like the nicest person in the world. And I don't know what kind of mother that has that many children--I don't know how many children she's up to right now--would have time to be on Dancing With The Stars. Because from what I hear, the rehearsals are pretty laborious. It's like 4-6 hours a day. You have 8 children that's pretty important."

Chelsea, who is promoting a new book Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang went on to say "I think it's important to make sure people have their 15 minutes then let them go.' But Chelsea pointed out, "She's gotten a lot of minutes.. so hopefully they're up."

When asked why she turned down Dancing With The Stars, Chelsea quipped, "I have a job, I didn't really need to do that!"

(I removed the part about Jesse James because it was irrelevant)

She has her sights on Larry's CNN job: "So hopefully you'll retire soon so I can take over a job like this. If I have to talk about Kate Gosselin for one more year, I'll probably shoot myself in the head.'

Didn't Kart Khate always brag that the kids NEVER watched T.V? But now they watch her on DWTS? ROFL

MBach said...

So, has Tony quit?

I caught just the last couple minutes of a show (ShowBiz Tonight) that talked about all the drama Kate/hate has brought to DWTS. No big surprise from the drama queen, but the report made it sound like Tony gave up.

I don't want to see her on anything, and will not be watching Kate/hate "pound her stumps on the floor". I'll just keep singing.

I won't watch, don't ask me.
I won't watch, don't ask me.
Madame, NOT you.
My heart won't let my eyes see the awful things that you do.

Absolutely. What still baffles me is why they continue to spend so much money on her.

I can only imagine how uncomfortable Khart must be swarming in pounds of makeup for DWTS when in the Florida Keys w/Jon she couldn't stand the feel of sunblock on herself.

"... 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."

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

With her foot embedded in her mouth and the infamous stick firmly implanted up her arse, NO WONDER she's such a sight to behold on the dancefloor!

Sickening that K8 is willing to pimp herself out even as the villain and absolute joke of current tv, so long as the bucks and attention keep rolling her way.

"Famewhore", thy name is Kate Gosselin.

Sheri said...

Shoshanna - Yes, I do think so too.

Non-disclosure agreements are designed to protect "the brand" and that's what Kate is to TLC...part of their brand.

More than their jobs are at stake though, violating a non-disclosure agreement leaves a person open to be sued for damages to prospective/possible earnings.

Let's face it, love her or hate her, Kate makes A LOT of money for TLC and who can afford to be sued by them?

I read a post about Kate's veneers. Veneers? I thought she was hiding the chiclets from the kids. With all the preparations she makes for DWTS, she has no time to de-gum a teddy bear.

Depends on the day/hour/week. Sometimes they watch and cant 'rest easy' until mama has danced and then other times they are in bed and thank goodness they dont watch this. Depends on whatever suits Kartie. I am not sure where the eyeball-heart-point comes in, maybe it was for the cameraman?

The photos up at ROL of Khate and the kids doing an egg hunt - looks like Khate was in total control of HOW it would go down. God forbid those kids just have fun!!!

She probably had to get the most eggs, too.

(radaronline )An Easter egg hunt with Mommy barking orders in her pink high heels too! What a treat! Blah!

Cry Me a River said...

I looked at the Easter egg pics. When I saw that all I could think of was all dressed up and nowhere to go. It is just a sad commentary. They probably really like Gina. She seems to be loving toward them in some of the other photosd.

I wonder if her boys are staying there with her?

Lisa said...

First of all, it is so obvious that Kate has those ROL people in her pocket...look at the way they kiss her butt..."Kate looked absolutely stunning, Kate is such a hands-on-mom", etc....gag me with a wooden spoon!!!! Secondly, I have a hard time believing that pictures that close and clear of those children from the angles they have been shot are being taken from off the property. Me thinks she is letting her pap friends come in and take pics of supermom in action to try and make her look good! Can you say photo op?

KHATE said...

As I predicted pics!
I have a question-
Are these pics taken by a photographer for her? I mean, she could easily keep paps off her property, right?
It's wild that all these pics show up from their front yard. Heaven help they have privacy, I mean, only a million dollar home. She is a horrible mom. It's not Easter, it's a photo op.

Good point Lisa.
Last year, when the whole hoopla was in full swing, Kate had the kids on a blanket in the front yard everyday.

I beleive she was being paid by ROL or similar to be available for photos to keep the who saga in the press.

If she truly wanted to protect her children, they could have hidden in their large backyard.

Im sure the kids were confused- mommy says she hates the p people but makes us sit in front of them all day like we are a zoo exhibit.

Pa Mom Knows said...

"Secondly, I have a hard time believing that pictures that close and clear of those children from the angles they have been shot are being taken from off the property."

With a good telephoto/zoom, you can get shots like that off the property. It is closer to the road than you would think.

Shoshannah said...

Oh, please - the Easter Egg hunt!

Everyone knows that the real fun is in coloring the eggs, all sitting around the table, smelling the vinegar, trying to be original, waiting to see the colors come
out - just being together, creating something.

Does anyone think for a second that Kate the Great actually did any of that, or picked out their baskets or gave a damn about any of it? No! She just traipsed outside in her pinkety-pink stilettos (very appropriate for a walk in the grass with your little ones) and posed for the cameras.

I will be amazed if, in 8 or 10 years from now, when the kids are old enough to understand,
they don't all wind up despising her. Unless they
grow up to be more generous of spirit and can
look back and sigh and say: She didn't know how to help us.

Wow, why do I have the feeling that Mady's book on kate his going to eclipse everything about the Mommy Dearest book. I have this feeling that Joan Crawford is going to look like a saint next to kate in the parenting department. At least she had talent

Everything's a photo op. I can see it now when kate's first grandchild is born & the fight that will ensue with whoever is the mother because kate wants the whole TLC crew there to record every minute of it.

Hambone said...

Wouldn't it be great if Jon had the kids on Easter Sunday, took them to church and then spent the day with Kevin and Jodi and the kids could have an egg hunt with their cousins?

It's kind of sad the kids had an egg hunt on Saturday and without other kids to play with...all because their mom is leaving town again.

No, this would certainly not fly. On major shows anyhow. I've worked as ent. lawyer for 15+ years and have never heard of such a condition precedent for a nobody like Kate.She may be able to get independant makeup or hair people or the like to sign an nda over threat of not hiring them, but that's about all I can think of. She's a legend in her own mind. Nobody in Hollywood cares (other than the folks making $$ off of her peculiar brand of celebrity. And that's all it is. Not talent).

Disturbing Pic said...

What's with the severe bruising on Hannah's upper back & arm, and a bite mark on her neck?! It's shown in the ROL pic of her standing with Aiden. Disturbing.

vltaylor said...

When I looked at the pictures on ROL it looks like Hannah has some really large bruises on the left side of her upper back and on her neck. Did anyone else notice that?

Just My Few Canadian Cents said...

We knew the Easter egg hunt pics were coming as Kate said in one of the articles that she was doing this activity with the children.
For someone who supposedly hates the papparazi so much, why hold what is supposed to be an intimate family moment and tradition in the front yard when you have acres and acres of privacy in the back.

A local radio reporter said they
felt embarrassed for Kate after her second DWTS performance and it was really sad she has to embarrass herself so badly to provide for her children. "Sad" isn't the word I would use as it's hard to feel badly for someone who so shamelessly exploits her children to benefeit herself.

(And the heels! Really Kate! I would think a "real" mother would wear something more comfortable and appropriate when running on the grass with her children.)


I'm assuming her PR team/TLC wrote the story on the Radar site. Too bad nobody confirmed with Kate or her wardrobe person what she would be wearing on the day. Radar reported that Kate looked beautiful in her purple shirt. But the shirt was most definitely pink. The "article" also mentioned that Jon was not in attendance. I wonder if this was part of Jon's settlement with TLC - they get to bash him at their will in all their press releases and stories they send to the Radar and other news outlets. I really feel sorry for him.

I suppose he'll be spending the actual holiday with the kids. And if he chooses to celebrate privately and not exploit the kids the media will accuse him of being a deadbeat, absentee father because there will be no photographic evidence of him with his children. But if he calls the photogs/paps over like Kate and TLC did today, he'll be accused of shamelessly exploiting the kids to garner attention for himself.

Lastly, I wonder what kind of drama Kate and Tony will cook up this week to remain in the competition. However, they decide to act out, they have steep competition from Erin Andrew's death threats this week. With all the beefed up security this upcoming week for Erin, it will be interesting to see if any of Erin's(real) bodyguards are photographed toting her purses around.

frontyardaccess said...

why when you own 24 acres do you egg hunt in the FRONT yard?????

We only have three acres and we don't do anything in the front yard.....ever!

jojow said...

I'm fascinated by the people who ARE in Kate's life (as well as by those who aren't: mother, father, sisters, friends, etc.).

I wonder so much what her managers, PR people, stylist, etc. really think about her and how they handle her. Do they really like her? Do they spend a lot of time discussing behind closed doors how to "handle" her because she's such a mess. Do they ever say NO to her, or does she get everything she wants?

Also, Why, oh why, oh why, don't they HELP her in ways that would be truly beneficial: acting classes, DANCING classes (at least a few of the basic steps), speaking tips, how to carry on a conversation, how to smile like a real person. It just seems to me that they aren't doing a very good job of helping Kate help herself.

I wonder if they try and she just refuses because she thinks she is already perfect. Or, are they letting her look stupid on purpose because of the publicity and ratings she brings. If that's the case, is Kate in on it? Is she letting herself be played the fool all for the money?

It just fascinates me how much power and influence Kate (or those who work for her) seems to have. I just can't figure it out. It's like she rules the world. It perplexes me. I don't understand how someone so nasty and horrible could have her a$$ kissed so much...

susantoyota said...

Long time lurker here. It amazes me that Khate believes the American public can continue to be fooled about the photo ops that show her as an involved mother. And shame on the 'news' organizations that help her with these lies! The Radar Online pictures of Kate taking some time off to play with the kids (with Blackberry in hand)from a couple days ago were so staged. If you go back to the picture of her in the Porsche with Tony, she has on the same black outfit under that little pink jacket. Pull up, walk into the house, take off the jacket--don't forget the Blackberry!!--and come back out with the kids--perfect photo op. No way did Tony not stay to practice their routine. They need the practice and he would probably like to get thru the practice and go home to his own kids for a day or so.

Mama Khate is going to have a breakdown when the cameras go away. At least the kids know what the backyard and the woods look like when Jon is with them.

Hard to Keep Loving Jon said...

I commented on the "stunning" mom w/shrewface and clenched fist "enjoying" the Easter egg hunt on ROL...............and BOY OH BOY, did I get a ration of s**t! That site is filled w/whackos. I have never seen anyone here reply to a sheeple in less than polite terms even though they disagree. I scrolled through and realized the same names came up hour after hour. And hour after hour they babbled the same stupidish/ridiculousish comments. What a sad learning experience. I was even accused of saying the same thing under a different name -- 50 times. I guess they cannot believe that more than one person could possibly come to the same conclusion about the #1 mom of all time. Her supporters are a sorry lot indeed.

Tami said...

On DWTS Monday if she does that paparazzi thing she will probably bring up the egg hunt and how they were "bothered" in their front yard. No one will ask why she doesn't just go to the big and private backyard! Did Pam Anderson get photographed by paps on her front lawn today doing an egg hunt? Of course not! And Kart could get her nails done in LA but then she would not be seen with her kids and n o one would take her pics!! No one cares if you go to Planet Nails, fame whore!

Tami said...

Tony is another one addicted to Twitter and can't shut up. No one believes you, Tony. How can you honestly think saying the Paso is her best dance means anything considering the huge joke she made out of the last two dances?!

Tami said...

I guess Kart was using her heels to poke holes in the lawn so her gardener can spread out the fertilizer..or she can! What idiot puts pink heels on to walk around their own front yard? Or dresses up their kids to the 9's to hunt eggs alone in the front yard? Just how stupid are some people to eat this stuff up?

Cry Me a River said...

Kate gets paid for those pics that go on ROL. Nadya finally admitted after having denied it for a long time that she makes money from ROL. Maybe TLC gets the money, but they should know by now if Katan can figure out a way to get around them she will - just much more subtly than Jon.

About the bruises on Hannah those kids get violent. We just started to see that when they moved into the big house - after the so-called separation or open marriage that Katan was hoping for that didn't quite work out and resulted in a divorce.

There is no telling what goes on there when they are being taken care of by young college-aged not-a-nannies. I would imagine their hands are tied when it comes to any kind of discipline and I am sure the kids call all the shots. It is so sad.

Cry Me a River said...

I looked at those pics of Hannah. Looks to me like Leah also has a bruise on her arm. I feel for those kids...

IDModo said...

In regard to Hanna's bruising- let's not jump to conclusions, there is a condition which is sometimes found in Asian children which looks like bruising but isn't, I can't remember the name. I know about this because there was a case in our city where a child was apprehended by the Children's Aid for suspected abuse and it turned out to be this particular condition. If I can remember the name I'll post it.
I can't imagine that if Hanna's marks were evidence of something else, that they would not have been covered up with makeup for the pap pictures!

IDModo said...

The condition I was referring to in my last post is called Dermal Melanocytosis or Mongolian spots.More information can be found on Wikipedia and other sites.

Stephanie said...

do you think it's even possible that she purposely danced horribly the past two weeks and now is going to have some amazing comeback? wouldn't put it past her.

Malone said...

http://www.radaronline.com/photos/image/55979/2010/04/kate-gosselin-has-easter-egg-hunt-kids

Correct me if I am wrong, but doesn't this photo look photoshopped? How can there be a shadow on the front of both Mady and Cara if they are facing each other. They are outdoors, so their is only one light source, the sun. Something didn't look right when I first glanced at it, then the shadows on their clothing caught my eye.

It makes me wonder if the bruises on the girl tup are not really just shadows from the trees? Bad photoshopping? Maybe they are bruises, but those would be awfully big bruises.

NT said...

I agree with Pa Mom that those pics are too clear to be from the street. You can see also that sometimes one or more of the kids are looking right at the person with the camera. Those pics are made on property and from ROL who I'm sure is being paid by TLC.One day the truth will be told and it will bring her down.

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

That's exactly it, people keep giving kate these opportunities & she treats the opportunities like they're jokes. A smarter, more grateful person would have actually treated these opportunities seriously & with some respect. People like kate tend not to respect what they get for free & she's been handed a lot of opportunities others would kill for & at least attempted to do something with. I bet she was more serious about going to her high school prom than she is about DWTS.

Why is it that Kate can say she's trying to channel her lost twenties, yet Jon was publicly crucified for saying the same thing?! [She stated it in one of her recent interviews, the one where Tony walks off.] Kate -- what an embarrassment to the human race.

It's a shadow from the tree, not bruising. Look at the shadows on her dress.

There is an interesting article about TLC on cnn.com this morning. While it mostly focuses on the upcoming Sarah Palin show, it mentioned the J&K+8 show and talked about the public's love-hate relationship with Sarah and Khate. It also made several good points about how TLC has strayed so far from it's original programming, when it was The Learning Channel, that it is impossible to go back and they are now in it for the ratings.

I agree tho, I can't understand why they continue to bother with her.

Carezee said...

I just have a couple of observations. I seen an interview where Kate was asked about her new hair do. She said she liked it long because it was like she was in her twenties again. That isn't her exact wording but you get the idea. Why is it alright for her to want to be in her twenties again but when Jon says something he is basically told to grow up. Also didn't Jon want her hair long when they were married and she kept getting it cut shorter? She wouldn't do anything that would make him happy even if it was something she wanted too.

Also are we sure that the little girls didn't give her that pedi? I mean really would you pay someone money to have your feet look like those? Although in their defense it is hard when you are working with "flintstone toes".

I love reading all your comments you guys really make me laugh:)

Mona said...

I read somewhere on here that there was some concern about bruises on Hannah. I don't think those are bruises - the same dark
shadow is on Aaden's shirt and on Cara's face. I think it's just the lighting.

Also, that Easter Egg hunt does look posed to me as well. Why are all the eggs apparently in the same place where 8 children have to bunch up like that to get them?
They seem to all be in the bushes
in the front of the house! Maybe this photo is when the hunt first began and they were just leaving the starting line, but it certainly looks odd to me. It comes across as a lazy person's attempt at doing a family
"tradition" before she has something else better to do. "C'mon kids, the eggs are all right here on the front porch, put them in your baskets and let's be done with this! I've got things to do!" If this was only the beginning of the hunt, why would there not be more pictures of them later when they were all spread out over the yard? It just seems strange to me.

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

Huh?? Is that really what we want?

Do we really want her to improve her self-image?

I don't. I like it just the way it is!

I love it that she sounds stupid when she talks, that she can't dance a step, can't even smile like a genuine person.

I want her to represent herself just as she is. A stupid, angry, bossy, even cruel person.

TucsonMom said...

Did you notice the pictures of Jon picking up the kids at the bus stop last week. They are posted on ROL. The kids were so happy and they were all smiling. They seem so different from when Kate shows up at the bus stop yanking and jerking them around.

It was nice to see them so happy!

vltaylor said...

I went back to look at the pictures that I had seen of Hannah. The area that looks like bruising is not from shadows as some on here have said. There are more pictures of the kids on Us or People (forget which one) and you can see Hannah's back as she is running in the opposite direction of the camera. You can clearly see the bruising in that pictures especially. Not saying that it is anything to be over concerned about (We have seen that the kids are always hitting each other). Just wanted to address the idea that they are shadows.

jasmine said...

Where do these paparazzi or TLC paid photographers come from? Do they work for local media outlets or are they living in the garage along with Jon, Steve and Tony?

Not sure who said this:

"Why, oh why, oh why, don't they HELP her in ways that would be truly beneficial: acting classes, DANCING classes (at least a few of the basic steps), speaking tips, how to carry on a conversation, how to smile like a real person."

But my guess is that her handlers have been on a constant mission to make Kate more presentable and likable. They are working with unmoldable rotten clay.

debbiejo said...

Vexatious said "Why is it that Kate can say she's trying to channel her lost twenties, yet Jon was publicly crucified for saying the same

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Answer: Because Jon was blatant about it and Khart slithers around, lurking in the shadows, hiding her dastardly deeds of promiscuity, all the while pretending she is an "author of a Christian book". And the sheeple are too dumb to look under the rocks and see her slithering around the rocks of Stepford.

goawayJandK said...

In regard to Hanna's bruising- let's not jump to conclusions, there is a condition which is sometimes found in Asian children which looks like bruising but isn't, I can't remember the name.

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

The condition is called Mongolian spots, and yes very common in Asian babies/young kids. From what I understand, however, the "spots" that look very much like bruises usually appear only on the lower back and buttocks. Not sure if they ever appear on arms or the upper torso.

Ohio Buckeye said...

Please tell me I did not just see Jon G's face appear in a brief ad for some tacky upcoming program on E about 'the other women talk'. Presumably they have lumped the Gosselins into the same slime heap as Jesse James and Tiger Woods.

Dear lord, is there no end to this no-class saga?

Seriously - does anyone really care whatany of 'the other women' have to say? Not this chick.

It's just disgusting that tv takes the most low life behavior and presents it to viewers as 'entertainment'.

TV Decision Makers: AIM HIGHER.

Ohio Buckeye said...

Jane in California said, "...But my guess is that her handlers have been on a constant mission to make Kate more presentable and likable. They are working with unmoldable rotten clay.'

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

Agreed about the unmoldable clay, and IMO they are now going the other direction, attempting to capitalize on the cartoonish feminine version of a 'Dastardly Dan'-type character that is K8G. The kind people love to hate.

I don't think K8G gives a flying fig if she is loved or despised, so long as she's in the spotlight and the checks clear.

You can clearly see the bruising in that pictures especially. Not saying that it is anything to be over concerned about (We have seen that the kids are always hitting each other). Just wanted to address the idea that they are shadows.

I disagree. The photo on People magazine's site is of Leah running in the opposite direction, not Hannah. You can't see Hannah's back. ( There are no Easter egg hunt photos on US magazine's site.)

In the photo of Leah running in the opposite direction( People's site ), it does look like a darker area on her left shouder, but in photos on Just Jared, there is a clear shot of Leah's back and it's not there. It was a shadow.

I just spent 15-20 minutes enlarging photos from several sites and none of them look like bruises. In fact, one of them has a clear shot of Hannah's neck and the "bite mark" is not there. Her neck is clear. I agree in that one shot of her and Aaden it looks like a big bruise on her neck, but in another photo it is gone. If you look closely at the photo of Hannah and Aaden, there are shadows on the straps of her dress ( in the same area as what looks like bruises on her shoulders ).

I certainly am not defending Kate in any way because I'm sure all kinds of crazy goes on in that house when she's gone, but I'm not buying that those are bruises or birthmarks. Looks like pure shadow to me.

The condition is called Mongolian spots, and yes very common in Asian babies/young kids. From what I understand, however, the "spots" that look very much like bruises usually appear only on the lower back and buttocks. Not sure if they ever appear on arms or the upper torso.

---
My kids are Chinese-American, and so I know what Mongolian spots look like (and yes they look just like large bruises, which is why we had our kids' spots documented by the pediatrician when they were babies).

Mongolian spots come at birth, and usually gone by 6 yo. They are usually on lower back/buttocks, but they can go higher on the back.

I really don't think that's what we are seeing on Hannah. I took a quick look at some photos of the kids in bathing suits at the beach last year--none have Mongolian spots visible. And they (so afar as I know) are visible from the first days or weeks after birth.

I also do not think they are a shadow, for the reasons vltayolor and others have pointed out. At the same time, I wouldn't jump to the conclusion that any of the kids is being abused--kids get banged up all the time, especially when they have lots of siblings to roughhouse with. What clearly looks like a bite/mouth bruise on her neck is more concerning. The kids are really too old to be biting each other--they should know better.

Poor kids--they aren't getting the consistent boundaries they need to respect each other and respect themselves.

If it's the photo accompanying the article on People you're talking about, (http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20357758,00.html) then it's not bruising - it is shadows - Just Jared has a bigger photo of the same girl tup walking away from the camera, and no marks on her back:

http://justjared.buzznet.com/photo-gallery/2439668/kate-gosselin-easter-egg-hunt-01/

As for the Radar photos - image 5 of 6 is what I guess people are talking about - I think it's shadows too (and from the hairstyle, a different girl tup - sorry, I can't tell them all apart - than the one in the above mentioned photos too)

Watch out!! There is a Good Morning interview posted on the web now, the other half of the interview will be broadcast at 7 a.m. tomorrow. Khate is tearful as usual, states if she was financially set she would love to be at home cooking and baking. When is she going to get it that we don't owe her anything for choosing to have so many kids? When is ABC going to realize the American public is not fooled by all the PR?

I don't necessarily WANT Kate to get her act together, but I'm just so curious as to how the professionals in her life deal with her. It seems like she would be such a nightmare to work with.

It just perplexes me from a human interaction standpoint how Kate can surround herself with people who are so willing to kiss her butt when all the other people around her flee in all directions.

The circle of protection she has is fascinating - how she, the narcissistic, mother from hell can get everything and Jon - the laid-back, but apparently loving dad - gets thrown to the lions...

It's just strange, really strange...

Snerk said...

To me a huge part of the problem is Kate's definition of financially set. Most people think it's affording the basics and normal things of life with a few frills. To Kate it's most or all of the frills and super lavish. Kate thinks being financially set means sending eight children to a pricy private school, driving a luxury car, living on a 24 acre estate, having lots of help including full time nannies, landscaping service, pool service, drivers, assistants, lavish vacations, designer clothes, designer shoes, designer handbags (all for her), cosmetic surgery and procedures at her whim, private chefs, and on and on. If she were reasonable and down to earth about what financially set was we might not have some of the issues with her that we do.

She could have been financially set already if she had decent money management skills and wasn't a greedy narcissistic attention hog.

This is such a tired, old story. Kate keeps pleading poor, single mom...why doesn't someone ask her WHY she is so poor? What happened to the millions they have made from the show and the books and the tours? Or, why not sell the million dollar mansion and get someone cheaper. Surely they could find something with 6 bedrooms under $1 million.

If they really are as poor as they say they are, then they have some incredibly bad money management skills.

Again, the protection she has is unbelievable.

what's going on? said...

Those are bruises on hannah. Dark marks on skin only, not clothing, in that area and the dark marks go under her strap. Also the picture on people website is a different tup. Hannahs hair is in two buns ; the tup in the other pic has long pigtails.

exactly...and people (esp.those who have it worse than she does) are so tired of it. Reminds me of those people who stand on the corner with a sign saying "hard times please help"...after they collect their hand outs they go around the corner and hop into their luxury car and drive home to their fancy house.

jibberjabbers said...

Regarding the mark on Leah's back and Hannah's neck. They're all shadows.

Kate has several nannies. And if there are any marks on the kids, I'm sure they will be quick to report it to CPS or even the police.

And if the kids did have any bruises on them, I sure Kate would have covered it up. All Kate cares about is image. So she wouldn't let anything like this be revealed out in the open.

You are dead on. And that's been one of the big criticisms I've heard in the media about her - what does financially set mean to her?

I agree, I think that this song and dance are getting tiresome. As I have said before, she is a one trick pony. All she knows how to do is try and play the victim and at this point I think the public isn't going to buy it. They're going to look at her lifestyle, look at the recent rehearsal video where Tony walked out and shake their heads and tune out. Her 15 minutes are almost over.

My concern with Jon seeing a new attorney is that Kate can use that as an excuse for leaving DWTS and once again, everything will be Jon's fault.

I truly, truly hope you're right, because I don't want to hear about how hard it is for her to do the book tour & DWTS & looking after 8 count em 8 kids. I wouldn't be surprised if she did both so she could shamelessly plug her crap book on TV. what a waste of paper. All those great authors out there yet to be published & may never be published & that bitchy idiot kate Gosselin has a book. UGH! Hear her side yet again! I'm starting to wonder if she gets her way because she just plain wears people out.

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

(sigh) I really thought she couldn't disgust me any further, I really did. She has become even uglier in my eyes, not a single dram of beauty left in this beast, not one. It doesn't surprise me but I'm so disgusted right now reading this it's crazy. I loathe narcissists they ALWAYS make you feel like you've entered the land of insanity. She can't be bothered to practice enough to even remember her dance steps & rather than get off her large a$$ & practice more she's going to cry poor. She's simply not human, not by any stretch of the imagination. I hope karma kicks her butt all the way back to PA, selfish, rotten, spoiled creature! It is not for everyone else to keep her in the lifestyle she's decided that she wants. I mean come on this woman lives in a mansion at a time when a lot of people are losing their own homes. Maybe they should all move in with kate, she's got at least 20 acres she's never going to use.

If she miss managed her money that's too bad & it's her own fault. Where oh where is the IRS when they're needed. I doubt taxes were paid on all those love offerings or anything else she figures she could get away with. If she got rid of Stevie baby that'd save her a bundle right there. This has all gotten to her head & it really is time that kate went home. I don't think I'm going to find her next performances as funny as I had been, just revolting like kate is, utterly & truly revolting. It's like her making money is somehow vastly more important than any of the others getting a pay cheque, it's so disgusting.

Buzz may be 80, but at least he's having a good time out there, he's very charming & he REMEMBERED ALL HIS DANCE STEPS!!!! All kate does is flail around like a fish that's tossed on the shore & can't get back to the water & she doesn't eve flail in time to the music, with her badly done hair, sabotaged makeup & a wardrobe sewn by the only completely blind seamstress in America. I'd love it if kate would go before him, but I don't see it happening unfortunately. I hope her begging like this turns the stomachs of those watching & she gets fewer votes. I hope the proverbial tailpipe backfires & she's left with a face full of soot & exhaust smoke. GO AWAY KATE!!!

Ohio Buckeye said...

Re: K8 wishing she could be 'home baking cookies'. What a load of crap.

If she had any real desire in this area, she'd unload the mansion, downsize her current Living Large, and RUN from the spotlight.

Since she does the opposite, someone needs to tell Miss Thing that actions speak louder than words.

If she wants to be home with her kids lovingly baking cookies, the only thing stopping her is her own relentless quest for 'celebrity' and her chosen Lifestyle of the Rich & Famous.

And spare us the fake tears and oh, poor, brave, hard-working, self-sacrificing ME b.s. That old song is worn out.

Cry Me a River said...

Well finally somebody did something right--GMA. They showcased Neicy, Pamela, and Kate as single moms as well they should. It was a great segment.

I have a lot of respect for Pamela and Neicy. They are raising teenagers on their own and like Neicy said when they are little it is much easier than when they are teenagers and have all the choices in front of them. Having a teenager myself, I know that is very true. And Pamela refuses her sons to be photographed until they are old enough to make that decision for themselves.

These are two very strong women who are putting the needs of their children first and I admire them for that. Thanks GMA for showing that.

Wow, ROL must be tied to TLC real bad! Pics of Jon with the Alexis at a doctor's visit. "While Alexis was all smiles, it certainly wasn't the same fun Kate and her 8 appeared to have on Saturday morning, with an Easter Egg Hunt in their front yard."
Are they for real? She was GONE on Easter SUNDAY!! So, yes let's just have Easter on Saturday, but wrap things up by noon, Mommy has a flight to catch! I wonder if their custody agreement states that Jon is the one responsilbe for any medical/dental visits? Haven't seen any pics of her taking them to an appointment in some time. Unless you count her spa appointments.

Pamela Anderson is not a Kate Gosselin Fan:

"Pam can't stand Kate," a show insider spilled to Life & Style magazine. MSNBC.com reports, the source said Anderson questions the motives that are likely behind Gosselin's attempts to be Pammy's "friend."

I can't believe Kate is trying to make friends with someone! Oh wait, yes I can - only because she gains something from it, and that's not friendship but something else starting with F - (more)Fame! Good for Pamela for not falling for it!

Tami said...

Tony is another one addicted to Twitter and can't shut up. No one believes you, Tony. How can you honestly think saying the Paso is her best dance means anything considering the huge joke she made out of the last two dances?!
********************************
I wouldn't be so hard on Tony. He's being paid, just like all the other instructors, to brag about their "stars". Its his job. He has to do it. I'm sure "tweeting" is part of the arranged deal with DWTS/ABC. He can't tweet about how much she hates her because that would be unprofessional and he would lose his job. He was probably on thin ice with them when he left that interview with Kate and most likely has been warned not to do such a thing again. Kate is NOT worth losing a great gig over, so I don't blame Tony for sucking it up and playing nice..........

Okay...Kate "dances" tonight. The question for us is for whom do we vote? I think those of us who want to see Kate go home are splitting our votes among too many of the other contestants. I believe that Buzz will get the votes of older viewers. My suggestion is that we all cast our votes for Pam, since she was at the bottom last week. We need to vote as an alliance like on Survivor. Thoughts?

silimom said...

I get the impression Fox Philly isn't too sympathetic to Kate's financial plight - but they're just jealous because after all she's the only person in Pennsylvania on television (snark):

http://www.myfoxphilly.com/dpp/entertainment/040510-kate-gosselin-plays-mommy-card-again

"Radar Online has reported that Gosselin, 35, is getting $200,000 to appear on “Dancing.” Her family lives in a $1.2 million estate in Wernersville, Pa., that Gosselin took over as part of her divorce settlement with Jon Gosselin.

The couple reportedly had a seven-figure income before “Jon & Kate Plus 8” was canceled by TLC last November.

In court papers filed earlier this year in a contract dispute between Jon Gosselin and TLC, it was revealed the Gosselins had a contract with TLC through May 2010.

That case was settled and TLC said the family remained under contract to TLC. It’s unknown if Kate Gosselin is under contract to TLC beyond May, but she is appearing on ABC with that network’s permission."

Jane in CA said...

I agree w/you CantSeeSheep,

Kate expects that the rest of society should pay for her extravagant lifestyle. It would always be annoying but it's downright disgusting in these tough economic times to see Kate crying about how tough her financial situation is -- all the while, we see pictures of her coming out of the nail salon, the tanning parlor, climbing into her expensive vehicle, driving up to her McMansion, while her bodyguard carries her purchases!

I have friends who have been forced to file bankruptcy, a friend who has lost his home, many who have lost their jobs or been scaled back in their hours -- and not a one of them complains or cries poor like Katie Irene.

I saw the recent pics on ROL of Jon meeting the kids at the bus. There was one where one of the boys and one of the girls are both giving him a leg hug at the same time. It's so nice to see smiles on their faces, and physical affection given/received. Those little ones surely need every ounce of love and affection they receive from their dad, as they don't get any from Kate.

http://www.theboot.com/2010/04/05/tony-dovolani-kate-gosselin-country-music/

"Tony says his dream dance with Kate on an upcoming show would be to Tim McGraw's 'Down on the Farm.' "We're looking at options for what we can submit for future dances," says Tony. "And [Kate is] like me, she likes to listen to all different types of music. I'm going to find out what country music she likes, so hopefully we could dance to a country song on our show. I actually look forward to that."

Just read this article - and I am about sick! I know the dancers plan ahead , but this sounds like they KNOW they will be in it for the long run! Won't she just go away?????

maggie said...

Kate's comment that if she was financially set she would love to stay home and bake cookies with the kids will come back to bite her in her ARS!

Everyone knows Kate is going to draw a big check from DWTS. Then Kate's book will be out next week. Certainly she will draw another big paycheck from that. Then this summer/fall Kate's new TLC show will premiere (with the kids no doubt). No doubt she will draw a huge paycheck from that.

Gee, isn't the public going to add up ALL these sources of income that she is generating. In the first half of 2010 alone, she will earn at least a million if not millions. You have to figure that she will earn at least 75,000 per episode for her new TLC show. (It was stated that in season 5 they were earning $75,000 per episiode). I think the kids will also earn their own paychecks when there are filmed. Don't forget TLC announced a few weeks ago that the ENTIRE family is under contract with them. And more than likely, after the first season of her new tv show there be many more seasons. Remember Jon (per lawsuit agreement) now agrees to have the kids filmed.

Almost all the pro-comments on all the different websites are because she HAS to earn a paycheck to support the kids. It sounds reasonable if you didn't know all the facts. But when her new book comes out and then her own TV show a few months later is aired isn't it going to be VERY obvious that Kate is very well off and rich.

I bet Jon is also paying her a minimum of five figures a month in support per their divorce decree. TLC said the entire family is under contract but Jon would not be on the tv screen. If someone is under contract that means they are drawing a paycheck. Kate is having TLC pay Jon so he can pay child support.

Kate's greed is bottomless and disgusting. It will be her downfall. She can't continue earning huge paychecks from various sources and continue to complain that she is in debt and HAS to work. You can't have it both ways. The public will catch on! And I hope the public will be pissed when they see the kids being filmed again.

Frosty the Haircut said...

That was awful. I finally saw the DWTS footage of Kart dancing last week. Yowsers. She really did just smile and forget the steps. Her hair and makeup were horrible. Her eyeshadow looked like My Little Pony and her dress was Rainbow Brite. She looked so pissed off when they gave her their comments. How can people seriously buy into her bs that she's just a single mom trying to get by? Really, she's just an inwardly ugly person who is obsessed with materialism and status symbols. Yuck. Niecy Nash was looking daggers at her every time they showed her.

Frosty the Haircut said...

I couldn't quite put my finger on what Kate looks like when she's dancing, and then I looked up dancing horse on youtube. Bingo!!! I nailed it, but the horses are about 100 times more talented and graceful. Plus, they remember their steps. Clomp, clomp, gallop, gallop, trot, trot, clomp, clomp, bounce up and down.

MBach said...

I won't watch, you can't make me.

Also: Someone mentioned her book coming out soon. What is that? Another book. Sorry, but I have just checked in here and there since the show ended(?). I must have missed something.

Just to check I went for the first time to the post about the book Love (gag) is in the Mix. It is listed as being out Nov. 2009. Yes or no?

Under Love is in the Mix is the book that Kate/hate should have written....
Raising the perfect child through Guilt and Manipulation. Actually by Elizabeth Beckwith, but WOW! That sure sounds like a Kate method of how to raise a child. Of course, the sub title would have to be
-By Becoming a Star, and using lots of other people to raise my kids.

Jen K said...

About the house and being financially set...the area on the way "up the hill" to the Manor of Horrors is actually a very nice area with many largish new homes which are easily more affordable than the one they have.

I wondered why someone would bother to purchase 20+ acres and spend all of their time in the dang driveway, when for about $500,000 or less you can get a house that is at least 4000 square feet on less acreage that you actually use?

If they were smart, they would have paid for the house outright and purchased a less expensive one. There is no bound to what Kate will do to afford the stuff she wants, and I fear DWTS is the least of the embarassing things she'll do to get what she wants.

In other words, fasten your seatbelts Gosselin kids, the Embarassment Train to College is just leaving the station!

Anonymous said...

This morning Sheri Shepard said this morning that she supports Kate Gosselin and she too would like to do DWTS but can not because it is filmed in L.A. and she does not want to leave her son here in N.Y. to have him raised by a nanny. And Sheri Shepard supports Kate Gosselin? A woman who leaves her 8 children to be raised by several nannies, Is that a double standard or what?

So I read a People magazine today at the hair salon. A recent one with Kate on the cover - with the caption "Can't a mom have fun?"

In her attempt to justify her traveling so much she said something along the lines of yes, this job was fun and it was "cost affective" and yes it took her away from her kids but "my youngest are nearly six, it's time," meaning at six, they are surely old enough to get along without their mother.

Pathetic.

I ran across the GMA video and wished there was more on Niecy and Pam. At the end the interviewer asked Kate what most people don't know about her. Her response was that she is not whoring the kids out. BS. Nothing in her actions support that. And you can tell she was coached and that question was asked to make Kate look good. Ugh. When will her PR team learn. We don't want her to make vague fake comments. We want her off any media there is.

And this DWTS gig is turning out to be the kind of thing that has to be really stressful for the kids--plenty of lousy publicity for Mom, yet she stays on the show? How are they supposed to add that up, either now or when they are older?

Anyway, thanks for your posts and insights.

Kate's comment that if she was financially set she would love to stay home and bake cookies with the kids will come back to bite her in her ARS!

Everyone knows Kate is going to draw a big check from DWTS. Then Kate's book will be out next week. Certainly she will draw another big paycheck from that. Then this summer/fall Kate's new TLC show will premiere (with the kids no doubt). No doubt she will draw a huge paycheck from that.

Gee, isn't the public going to add up ALL these sources of income that she is generating. In the first half of 2010 alone, she will earn at least a million if not millions.

I bet Jon is also paying her a minimum of five figures a month in support per their divorce decree. TLC said the entire family is under contract but Jon would not be on the tv screen. If someone is under contract that means they are drawing a paycheck. Kate is having TLC pay Jon so he can pay child support.

You're forgetting to take into account that she has bills to pay out of the $$ she receives. She doesn't ge to just keep every cent she makes...none of us do.

And where in the world would Jon be getting enough $$ to pay that kind of child support? I seriously doubt TLC is paying any of the them anything just now.

And since they said they won't be using Jon in the shows I'm guessing the most of his gain was in not be prosecuted for breach of contract and the ensuing monies he'd have owed TLC.

Nah...those look like shadows to me. Even her dress has shadows all over it. Look at the photos on Just Jared and People. In the People magazine photo it looks like Leah has these same spots because of the trees. But in a JJ picture she has no spots. I think it was just a freaky tree limb she was standing near.

This is the crux of my issue with her. Kate is control of the size of almost all of those bills and she is creating a ton of unnecessary expenditures. That is she is the cause of her own problem to a vast degree. If she were not a greedy witch, she could easily have lived on the income from earnings invested with perhaps a few nursing shifts a week while the kids were in school. But dear Katie finds normal life so far beneath her.

My thoughts about Kate's GMA interview:

~a set-up for a drop-out of the show to save face? She misses the kids too much?

~If she isn't using her kids to gain fame, why have all three books been focused on the kids? Why does she mention them in any interview she does? Why does she always have to be introduced as a mom of 8?

~why does she jiggle her head like a soul sista who's aggitated/defensive everytime she talks? ( anybody else notice she does this?)

~If her story is true that she broke down and cried during rehearsal because she misses the kids, DWTS will use it. She knows this will get sympathy votes. Somehow I doubt she broke down and cried when she did all those book tours and speaking engagements a while back and was gone all the time. She seemed like she couldn't get away from them fast enough.

she is evil said...

Katan, if you are so upset by people thinking you pimp out your kids, you CAN fix the public perception: STOP EXPLOITING THEM, moron. Stop using them as your excuse for seeking fame, as your excuse for being a bitch, as your excuse for needing money and things. Stop dressing them up and parading them on your driveway for staged photo ops. Stop pursuing a reality show that includes them. Stop pretending to be an involved parent when we know you delegate everything with regards to your children. Stop bashing the father your kids love so much and let him see them as much as he wants; to do otherwise hurts the kids and makes you look like an even worse mother. Go ahead and try to be a celebrity. Just leave the kids out of it. They have suffered enough from your actions, words, and behavior, starting from before they were born. It's not rocket science.

Wow, you guys aren't kidding, that is freaking spooky. I think if I was kate I'd be getting a real bodyguard not the the purse cozy that's following her around now.

KB said...

Tony may be right, it may well be her best dance and whatever that implies regarding Kate. He's not saying it will be the best of the evening, but it will be her best dance, and that's not hard to achieve considering what the others have looked like. If you think about what he's saying, he's not really setting the bar high, that whatever we see tonight from her will be the best she has to offer and that could likely amount to very little.

IMO, he's not exactly applauding her, he's saying it should be better than the others she's done, but that whatever she does tonight is basically the extent of what she's got to offer the competition.

And he could also be right that it maybe her best as all that she'll likely do is stomp around, something she's very good at.

Aunt Chris said...

Can't See Sheep - LOL - "purse cozy" Hahahahahahaa!

KB said...

That dance was awful!!! Made me kringe the whole time.

It just all demonstrates her continued lack of talent.

She says it's hard and she's right, we here other celebrities on the show say it all the time. She's done that in interviews previous weeks, said how she has no experience and struggles as a result. Well, my response to that is, there have been many contestants on the show who have little to no dancing experience just like her, but they know better than to use that as an excuse and instead either buckle down and work to try and succeed or else they fail and look ridiculous, like Kart.

But no one has ever looked as terrible as her. It was difficult to watch.

~Shari~ said...

I thought Tony was swinging around a table cloth and then realized it was Kart. And as much as I wanted her voted off the 1st week, I've gotta say it's quite a thrill to watch her have to stand there silently and listen to people tell her how awful she is. (Giggle) And when Bruno mentioned she was 'in character' by having the face of a "super b**** from h***" I think someone should have pointed out to him that she wasn't 'in character'....that IS her character.

Cry Me a River said...

Well she looked better tonight. I liked her hair long and the dress. But I agree with Carrie Ann it was just strange. And with Len that it was too pedestrian. But she actually tried this time as we all knew she would because she was playing a part that she loves. She did better on some of the moves but she can't do the footwork at all. Everyone else improved their scores but her. And Tony is back in the saddle I guess because he thought she did great and I guess she did for Kate. I already can't remember what Bruno said. Can someone else remember, I can't believe I forgot.

Pamela got all of my votes because she was very passionate about her cause. I loved her dance.

PJ's momma said...

OK, so some of you have talked about Baby Mama's fans even questioning her on her facebook page, so I tried to find it. I didn't get very far, because my heart was in my throat. A lot of people (or maybe a few) have made up individual pages for each of the kids, many times over. Pictures, 'take the quiz,' videos, etc. It made me feel sick. This is what happens when you put your kids out there for all the world to see, without considering the ramifications for them. And now a new, uninformed audience will be interested as she constantly talks about them to garner votes or whatever. They may look at these pages out of sheer curiosity, but facebook is filled with lurkers and those pages should not exist. Those poor, poor kids. Can you imagine being 10 years old and having your friends tell you that there are tons of facebook pages about you and people ask questions (what's your favorite color!) or say hateful things as if they think it is really you? It is creepy and it is wrong.

That is the whole problem with her. I could easily sit home and bake cookies and cook all day, as she puts it, if I got just the 10k child support per month. Yes, even with 10 kids. I don't get constant manicures, go tanning, live in a huge house, buy myself $$$ crap all the time, etc, though. My kids don't go to a $$$ private school either. Nor do hers have to. It's all a choice. Her choice is to keep chasing fame and whining about not having enough instead of scaling back and just using this time to spend with her kids before they all grow up and move far, far away like they are going to do! The saddest part is that there are people who actually buy her line of bull!

Huh said...

"When is she going to let the tups choose their own clothes? Let them have some individuality already, shrew!

They do. You are seeing them in one photo in which they are dressed alike. They do not dress like this on a regular basis, or for school. The girls give their own opinions on what they like and don't like. The boys are like...whatever!

**********
This is something only a mom, nanny or someone dressing them would know. Unless someone is there and the boys say 'whatever' when being dressed, it is pure speculation. A teacher at their school would not be informed on how the boys want to dress. I would think it was strange if my kids' teachers knew their opinons on their clothing on any given day.

kate's an idiot said...

Whenever Kate is photographed picking up/dropping off the kids at the bus, the tups are often dressed alike. So at least when she knows she may be photographed, Kate appears to still be telling the nannies to dress them alike and to do the girls' hair. If the tups usually do not dress alike yet are often PHOTOGRAPHED all matchy matchy, then this suggests that Kate really does tip off the paps and uses those kids in the process. Interesting that the twins aren't included in the charade. Is it because they refuse or because Kate doesn't bother?

cossysmom said...

On Good Morning America yesterday they did a piece on the "divorced mothers" on Dancing with the Stars--Pam, Neecy, and Kate. It could have been the editing, but it was interesting to hear that Pam will not allow her children to be photographed, Neecy said raising young children is a piece of cake compared with teenagers, and Kate--well what can I say, it was the same old crap.

Pamela Anderson is a huge star. I don't particularly like her, but from what I hear about her she is a good mother. If she can keep her children from being photographed, why can't Kate??? Could it be that she doesn't want to keep them from the cameras because she knows that's what keeps HER in the public eye???

Really? Only a mom, nanny or someone who DRESSES them would know? Isn't is possible that a teacher, the parent of a classmate, or anyone that the child sees on a regular basis, might say, "You look nice today!" or "I like that outfit," and the child would shrug and say, "whatever?"

Midnight Serenade said...

"The girls give their own opinions on what they like and don't like. The boys are like...whatever!"

I also remember reading in an interview (and I think Kate said it on a show) that the girls are getting fussier about what they wear, especially the twins, but the boys are easy to dress because they just go along with whatever she puts on them!

BeDoneNow said...

Just a thought...

Some weeks ago a poster joked about her new show being called "The Taming of the Shrew". Maybe that is more real than we know. Perhaps TLC is humiliating her like this and delibertely bringing out the worst in her so that the show can truly be "The Taming of the Shrew".

A show where every episode is about putting Kate in a situation where she must deal with people who critique her and give her some come-uppance. Sheeple and GwoPers alike would watch that.

Kind of like Kirstie Alley keeps doing shows about her weight.

And she will cackle all the way to the bank. "I HAD to allow myself to be made a fool of, for some financial security for my hairdressers -er nail salon- er shoe stores- er plastic surgeons - KIDS!"

Has this woman no shame??? What an embarassment! This show has become "Dancing with the Has-Beens" (not that Kate ever really was a star).

Well, I knew Kate didn't raise them well, but if I heard that comment I would think it very rude! I've never known a kid to say something like that. And my 5 year old daughter does enjoy picking out clothes but if someone complimented her you would not be able to figure that out. She would not, for instance, say, "Oh yes, I love this outfit also". She'd just say thanks. It sounds odd that a teacher or another parent would think they can just know this stuff.

fidosmommy said...

Why is anybody still "dressing them"? They are nearly 6! Do they actually still require an adult person to hold out their pants, stick their legs into them and pull them up?

Do these children not have closets and drawers with their clothes in them? Can they not open these clothing repositories themselves? Or are the clothes kept in Kate's closet so Kate can select the outfits for the day and bring them to the children?

The whole idea of somebody having to supervise their getting their clothes on is disturbing to me.

StompThoseStumps said...

I'm thinking that this IS how TLC is getting rid of Kate. Now that they've made money off anything "positive" in building her up - they can now make money from her way down. They are showcasing all her flaws, so when they have no show for her, no use for her after every last penny has been wrung out of the situation, no one will touch her. I could be wrong... but really... after this... what is left? Book tour - predict a total fail. I do not believe they have a show at all. Just biding their time until May and they'll spit her out like day old gum. Wishful thinking? Sigh....

If Kate was really a cheerleader in high school, she must be trying hard to dance badly so that she can get some negative attention.

How can she be this uncoordinated in life? Even all the football stars can dance better than this ex-cheerleader!!!

It certainly is, but if one or more of them reply like that, I'd say they have appalling manners. Not surprising, given their mother. But I'd be very unhappy with my child if I heard such an exchange, as I'd realize I must be falling down on my job as a parent for such casual rudeness to come out of their mouth!

Jon Goes After Kate in Court:

http://www.tmz.com/2010/04/06/jon-gosselin-kate-gosselin-child-custody-/

Jon Gosselin thinks "Dancing with the Stars" is damaging his kids, thanks to Kate Gosselin ... and Jon now wants primary custody as well as spousal support from his ex ... TMZ has learned.

Jon's new lawyer, former assistant U.S. Attorney Anthony F. List, tells TMZ he's going to court to ask for primary physical custody. List calls Kate, "an absentee mom," which he says is no surprise to anyone.

List expects to use "DWTS" as evidence that Kate does not spend "quality time with the 8 kids."

List also thinks Jon is getting screwed in the child support department, claiming "$20,000 a month is ridiculous."

In addition to primary custody, List says he's considering asking the judge to reverse the support obligation and make Kate pay Jon. He did not specify the amount.

Ohio Buckeye said...

What took Jon so long to do this???

One wonders why he ever agreed to the initial custody, residential, and support decree in the first place. Is it possible he's this DUMB or did he just not want any additional custody responsibility at the time of the divorce?

Since claiming he did not want to continue with J&K+8 but then promptly signed on for another year of it and THEN spent the next year acting the fool in public and private, he has not given us much to work with as far as giving him the benefit of the doubt.

Too bad K8G didn't get this news before last night's Paso Doble - she might've been able to channel her newest level of RAGE into her STOMP.

She might've even have managed to stomp with a modicum of rhthym or grace.

Nah, never mind. Except for her ever-present internal rage, K8G has NO passion, sense of rythm, grace.

Here's a suggestion for next week's dance for K8G: The Rumplestilskin Dance. Maybe we'll luck out and she'll follow in Rumplestilskin's footsteps, accidentally stomping her way through the floor and into oblivion.

Long over due.

Rock on Jon Gosselin. Kate deserves to be wrestled to the ground and body slammed. She is an absentee mom but plays the victim each and every time. Even her own mother says that Jon is unemployed. Well no shit sherlock, TLC has pretty much put a stop to Jon doing anything outside their perimeters. But Kate is allowed to do anything even by making a complete and utter full of herself.

Susan said...

re: NoUse4Kate's post above me:

I've said it before and I say it again: those two are cut from precisely the same self-serving cloth and they deserved one another.

But, Jon, you putz, it's a little late for trying to play the "Kate's the breadwinner and I'm the stay-at-home dad", don't you think?

What a sad pair of bozos. Honestly, if those children manage to acquire any sense of moral or ethical direction at all, it will be miraculous.

silimom said...

This is a negotiating tactic. Kate has gotten critcism in the press for being an absentee mom and Jon is jumping on this. Not to sound skeptical but I wonder why now? Because Morgan kicked him out and he figures it's easier to raise his kids and be a SAHD and have Kate pay him then to try and find a job/go back to school for a new career?

I don't know these people or what goes on behind closed doors but I think I would have been more sympathetic had Jon had a job and a home and a way to provide for his kids sans Kate, whose days in the entertainment industry are numbered. What if Kate quits DWTS tonight and doesn't go on her book tour? Would that alleviate Jon's concerns?

I want this to work out for the best for the kids. Jon is the more hands on parent but they need to have access to Kate - bad or good, she's their mom and they love her. Grrrr. These two need to grow up.

Forget staying home and baking cookies, 20,000 dollars a month is enough for her to stay home and order 14k gold dipped cookies delivered by Martha Stewart! A few weeks ago, on the View, she hinted that Jon isn't supporting the kids. Well, well, it seems Kate may have forgot to take into consideration that child support is granted through the courts, and will be on record. Not even TLC can help her backpedal this one. Hmmmm...how will she justify recieving that kind of money? Good Luck Jon, anyone that really watched your show evolve knows you suffered spousal abuse. Also, you always showed compassion and love for your kids. I'm rooting for you.

Jen K said...

Smartest thing they could do is sell that house, divide up the equity and they each live a separate life in different houses with the kids travelling between both. I don't see any other way they can realistically do this.

It's sad that they went crazy and spent so much money, but trying to share that house with this tension is probably unbearable.

I hate that the kids would be uprooted again, but this situation is crazy. These kids don't seem to have any sort of advocate that isn't on the payroll of one of their parents. Neither are 100% fit in my opinion to really be there for the kids and do it unselfishly, but if Jon is available more days out of the week, then maybe this is how it should be?

If Kate wants to work, and work away from the kids (LA, NY, or wherever) then she has to grow up and understand that a choice like that has consequences. On the other hand, she could work in the are as a nurse and see her kids every day after school and put them to bed.

So the choice is really an issue of values. Eight kids who need their mother and father badly...do you choose fame and be away from them all the time, or do you choose quality time and a normal job like everyone else with normal responsibilities?

"Perhaps Kate can move up North with you" (To obsessed fan):NO!Please NO! We don't want her here in Canada either! Please just crawl back under your rock in Pennsylvania, Kate, and make EVERYBODY happy!
--------------------

Holy crap, noooo!!!! I'm in Canada too, keep the Witch of Wernersville away from here, we'll roll up the boarders if we have to. It's bad enough that we can have long cold winters, we don't need kate too.

Yay Pam not allowing her kids to be photographed!!!


$20,000 a month in child support, kate does not need to be on DWTS. For her to be crying poor & going on about how she has to work to support her kids is insane. If she can't or won't live on that kind of money a month something needs to be done. To be paying that much is too much & it should be reduced. If kate has to pay Jon then we'll really never hear the end of it. Hopefully no one will let her on TV to whine about it this time.

Wow, Jon pays almost a quarter of a million per year in child support? TLC pays him that much? And if so, why? To keep what quiet? And Kate can't live on that amount...and keeps crying poor? Seems like the court does need to get involved again, as she should be able to stay at home and be a full time mother with that amount of money.Probably what the judge had in mind I would think?

Looks like ABC was trying to play up the only reason for Kate's fame with the song papparazzi.
**************
Funny how she said she wanted to be on DWTS way back when she appeared on Leno's 10 at 10. She even sang a bit of Paparazzi. Hmmmmm..........

You go Jon!!! Whooohooo. He has been lambasted by the media and they will continue to destroy him, but what does he have to lose? If he is primarily caring for the children, then he should have primary custody. I don't think it's solely a money motivated thing. The legal fees alone are going to cost a fortune, and he is assuming a tremendous risk. The cards are stacked in her favor as she is the mother. Jon had better dig in and prepare for a long and expensive battle. I am glad that he's getting his cajones back. I feel that the only really bad thing that Jon has done is to lack discretion. He needed to make better decisions regarding who he dated and to keep it completely out of the public eye.

There are still people in this world that remember what Jon went through and who have not been sold on Kate's b.s., goody two shoes, come back kid, horse dancing ways. We remember how Jon:

-had to sign a contract saying that he was still married, but not really married to Kart (I don't recall Kart ever denying this, it's like she just let the buzz die down while following the script towards a new image)

-he must have had many sleepless nights wondering if his wife was sleeping with Steve

-he must have felt very alone caring for eight kids while his wife was absent all the time to go on book tours, etc.

-he must have felt humiliated after being verbally and physically abused in front of millions of people

-he must have felt guilty and like an arse when he got far enough away from that woman to see that he was exploiting his children

I am so tired of the press unfairly crucifying this guy. We have no idea from the press regarding who Kart has been sleeping with. Hmmm, why is that? Why is Kate always photographed in a "positive" light?

LIAR Kate "breaks down crying" (crocodile tears) because she "misses kids" (lies).

So, with this new custody battle in hand, will Kate QUIT DTWS to be there for her kids? OR MUST THE SHOW GO ON?

hmmmmm

A GREAT PUBLICITY STUNT for Kate would to announce on National TV that she is quitting the show to be there for her kids.

I'm guessing this is what she will do.

KHATE said...

I am shocked that on TMZ, people are voting for Kate as the better parent. Please go over to TMZ and Vote that Jon is the better parent!! At LEAST he LOVES the kids!

Ohio Buckeye said...

WHUT??? K8G needs an acting coach to help her EXPRESS her emotion?

WTH was she doing in ToysRUs, or when a speck of gum was found on a stuffed animal, or when an ice cream cone melted onto a child, or when Jon let the kids watch TV in bed, or Jon didn't use a coupon, or ANY time her desires were not intuited and immediately filled by others?

Though many, varied, and deep, K8G's problems do not include 'not being allowed' to express emotion.

Her problem is the ONLY emotion K8G feels to any real depth is her own rage, which she expresses all too fully at the most inappropriate times.

Acting coach, dance pro, makeup, hair, and wardrobe pros, massive PR efforts and $. All to no avail.

The only professional that can possibly help K8G is a psychiatrist.

And my guess is K8G is just too hopelessly K8G, beyond all help.

God save her poor kids.

BMWoP said...

I can't say that I blame Jon for wanting a change in custody and support payments. I would imagine most of what he pays each month in support goes to pay nannies to take care of the kids so Kate can go be a celebrity. The money probably doesn't even go directly to feed/clothe the kids.

I think it's kind of funny he's going to cause her to rack up more attorney fees so everything she makes from DWTS will go in Mark Momjian's pocket and not hers.

I also recall reading somewhere a while back that Jon was under TLC's thumb until March 2010. Maybe he's a free bird now and is able to speak up and do what he wants.

But I sure wish he'd ditch the cigarettes. They make him look so guido'ish and low class.

"Itruly wish veryone would leave her alone.she does... Itruly wish veryone would leave her alone.she does not need anyone elseI give hercredit for putting herself out there.She is an amazing roll model for her children.Jon is a job less baby and never once stepped up.She had erything riding on her. Schedules, food, what food for what baby.The only thing he gets gredit for are the baths!that type of prenancy/birth ends with/well post traumatic stress syndrome.It is not until everyone is safe you then actually let go."

KHATE said...

DEAR KATE AND JON,
Both of you need to get over yourselves. Here's what you need to do. Kate, go have your career. Jon, be a stay at home dad. Stop bashing each other and work it out. There is no way that you can love 8 children enough EVEN when your getting along. Now the divorce, all the nannies. Do the right thing. Kate, admit you NEED Jon to be the softening side for the kids. Jon, admit you need Kate to make the money. PLEASE DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE CHILDREN.

If Jon is the NON working parent and brings in that much and more to be able to pay it in child support...imagine what the WORKING parent is bringing in $$...something stinks in Denmark...what is she doing with all that money?

LOL @ the anonymous post. Perhaps they shood conseder an edjucasion.

Not a good reason said...

silimom said...

This is a negotiating tactic. Kate has gotten critcism in the press for being an absentee mom and Jon is jumping on this. Not to sound skeptical but I wonder why now? Because Morgan kicked him out and he figures it's easier to raise his kids and be a SAHD and have Kate pay him then to try and find a job/go back to school for a new career?

I think this is why;
From US Magazine:

A source close to Jon tells UsMagazine.com
With this latest legal action, Jon “hopes this will move TLC to pay him or at least give him permission to go out and work…and be able to afford his new home.” the source explains.

2. Preoccupation with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love

3. Believes he is “special” and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions)

Once again, the illiterate. From where do they all come? It's difficult to tell if they are kids, or adults who never made it past the 6th grade.

I'm guessing this is what she will do.

It wasnt until J & K's divorce announcement and word got out that Kate was away from her children more often then not did Kate decide to FINALLY come home and play mommy to her eight children.
With the news that Jon is claiming Kate to be an absentee parent IMO Kate will once again be FORCED to return home and play 'mommy', complete with staged driveway picnic photo ops.

Midnight Serenade said...

"Forget staying home and baking cookies, 20,000 dollars a month is enough for her to stay home and order 14k gold dipped cookies delivered by Martha Stewart!"

It sounds like a hefty sum, but really, when you figure out just the mortgage, home maintenance and education, it doesn't cover it.

Yes, I know. Give it all up and live like "normal" people!

LOL! I think all the "gredit", along with a big THANK YOU is due to the moderators who have to read the drunk ramblings of the "Walking Queen Kartie I'm mean" fan club! Thanks for the place to laugh, rant and get out my frustrations :)

kids in the cross fire said...

A source close to Jon tells UsMagazine.com that he "seems genuinely upset that the kids are growing up with strangers most of the time. Even when Kate's at the house, she has a nanny there to do all the work." The source also adds that "Jon is anxious to find a place of his own close to the kids so he can have a little more stability for them," and has been house-hunting near the $1.1 million Wernersville, Penn. home that he once shared with Kate and the kids.
----------------------------------
I could analyze his motivation...these two dueling adults need to find some maturity...but something in my gut has always told me that, from what I've been allowed to see of their lives, imperfect Jon is still concerned for the kids' welfare in a way Kate is not. Oh, in the earlier days of mostly-volunteer help, she still got to the essentials, like making sure the kids' tummies were full and they had clean clothes but it appeared to be a job, not a labor of love...just something to get through. Minimal interraction with her children.

You can bet she doesn't and hasn't done basic household chores for a long, long time. Nannies or school for the kids, dogs out of her rats-nest hair, household help all around...gives millionairess Kate nothing but total free time to concentrate on acceleration of her wannabe-celeb life, no matter where it takes her or what it is. And it's such a great cover; license to get out from under a busy, unglamorous homelife and not be criticized for it because, don't you know, that's why she's doing it in the first place, which makes it okay! Lest we not understand, it's all FOR her family; EVERYTHING she does is for her kids! She deserves a medal for Most Self-Sacrificing Mom in the history of mankind, can't you people see it?

I think of my own mom. She didn't just do the physical work/chores around the house; she also had a paying job. But regardless of how weary she might be or how busy, she and my dad both would spend time talking with us...fleshing out our feelings, problems, hopes and dreams, no matter what our ages were over the years, and THAT'S why my brother and I both had a good relationship with them in our adult years. They showed us caring by giving of themselves...not with fancy, matching clothes, not with expensive schools, the best toys or exotic vacations. They showed us the best of their love by simply SHOWING UP. By being there.

I definitely have known people who simply have to be away for days on end from their families...cops, offshore-oil workers, pilots, firemen, armed services, etc. This is legitimate and families cope the best they can. How is it that what Kate does is different with her various paid appearances? Hmmm. Maybe because it's so self-serving, overblown, silly...and because she requires too much attention and recognition for basically doing nothing, whereas these other workers are out there quietly and seriously doing something real and honorable.

Kids are amazingly resilient, but it has to be hard watching Mommy having fun, so far, far away with other people they don't know. Translation..."she must not miss us very much." What a lonely feeling for a little one. It must fill them with uncertainty. My own dad had to take a night job once and it was unsettling for me as a 7-year-old to wind up hardly ever seeing him; it changed the whole family dynamic at home and it left me feeling wary. I remember it so clearly...even now, decades later and it's not a good feeling. A silent prayer from me goes out to the eight Gosselins...that Jon has gotten through his roughest patches and is on the right road to doing what's right for himself and also for them. They need at least ONE parent upon whom they can consistently depend. They also need two parents who don’t fight so much with and against each other.

Reguardless of what happens with Jon's custody battle(I do hope Jon gets more time especially when Kate is away, he should be there not a nanny), I hope America will now see Kate is not a broke single mom of 8. She is getting almost 250,000 a year tax free(child support is not consider income and is not taxed). The average doctor after taxes/malpractice insuanace does not make this much money. I'm sure we all could come up with alot of senarios that Kate could be a stay at home mom, in a nice home, complete with tanning and a babysitter for 20k a month!
The Duggars claim it costs 60k year to raise thier 19 including housing , food, cars , and healthcare!
