Yeah, I kind of agree with the assessment of Jon (last post in the previous thread). My take on it is that the guy was beaten down to the ground financially by TLC to the point he had to say uncle and give in. If they're paying him $5000 a mth, that's $60,000 a year and I'm guessing that with his IT background he may have been able to find a job that paid at least that much. But it would tie him up so much more each day (welcome to the world most everyone else lives in) but in this case, it may have made it even harder to get away and stay on top of any TLC/K8 shenanigans they try to pull with the kids.

I agree that he's done a LOT that I can't admire, absolutely! And sure, earning $60,000 a year by doing not much is lazier than getting a real job...but all things considered, I'm thinking I'm not all that upset with his choice. I want him to have the time, be fully awake, energized and up for butting heads with TLC/K8 if and when they try to pull their next controlling move with the kids. I don't know...maybe I'm just giving him the benefit of the doubt after all that's gone down with him always coming up on the short end of the stick publicity wise and K8 coming out smelling like a rose. You may disagree with my assessment and that's fine...this is just my opinion...which btw is always subject to change given the next set of dramatic & unsavory circumstances that may pop up any minute!

Btw, I know he fired his attorney (List) but I just read somewhere that he's hired a well known, aggressive Philadelphia attorney whose specialty is custody law. I forget her name but apparently she knows her stuff and is a real bulldog in the courtroom and doesn't let anything get by her. That's the last I heard...and that he's also "trying to work things out amicably with Kate." If that's the case...not sure why he'd go ahead and hire an attorney...but anyway, that's all I've heard about it so just wanted to mention it. Maybe I'm missing some more news on it.

Why would Tony need to have a "general meeting" with TLC?? I had a scary thought....remember when Kate said somewhere that she wanted to get the kids some dance lessons? Well, could this be a future "very special episode" of "Kate Plus 8". Tony makes a special appearance to give the Gosselin kids dance lessons....I hope and pray not, but at this point, I don't put anything past these people.

OMG, that is scary. Of course kate wouldn't have any old dance teacher teach her kids, she'd try & mooch time with a top dance instructor. to go along with everything else on their golden platters. Well, if that is the case, I hope they listen to Tony better than their mother did & not fight & beat each other with toys while he's trying to teach them. The one little one (sorry can't recall her name, either Alexis or Leah) who really likes gymnastics would probably love it.

Basic dance lessons are helpful in things like posture & just the way you move in general, getting from point A to point B as well as good for a number of other things, a fun way of keeping fit if you enjoy dancing. Too bad kate hadn't paid attention, I realize her posture problem is supposed to be beyond her control, but learning a little grace for everyday movement, not walking like a lumberjack hauling a crosscut saw while hiking up the side of a mountain every time we see her would have been a bonus.

A little femininity is all I'm asking, just a tiny, tiny, weeny bit. How do you get an opportunity like that & refuse to take it?!?!? Tony's an amazing dance instructor! I mean if I look at it from her idiotic point of view, if she'd have put effort into it she might have done better & then be able to stay around the real stars a little longer & in Hollywood longer. Or, even more plainly she'd have made more money. From what we've seen so far it's not likely she's going to make more off her book than what she's already been paid & I don't know that her book signings are going to sell that many more, trying to actually dance might have been the better bet. What a dope!!!

Bestsellers Lists
===================

Bestsellers lists where the source is the publishers are easy to manipulate: wholesaler insists the minimum order is 4 cases of 25. The hundred books are counted / reported as "sold". However, there is no provision for the high number of returns.


Some papers no longer use this as a source as some publishers counts can be exaggerated by including review copies and freebies.


Some newspapers use a simple list ballot sent to book stores asking what were there top sellers.

Usually this task is given to an idle cashier who does not always have access to accurate inventory counts and just goes with books that s/he are familiar with by recognizing a name of an author or a title.

Finally, the Nielson Media have created bookscan which they feel address these problems and they sell their bestsellers lists.

They do however make the top 10 available free of charge at

Agree, for the most part. Still, the cameras make me so ill. My sis' and I can't stand cameras, and she's a major extrovert. Our other sis' can't get enough of the spotlight. There is no way 8 kids collectively love that kind of entrusion.

Life and Style asserts Kate Gosselin (pulled from a tell-all book) ruined her family with screaming fits and humiliating secrets.

Anyone know what "tell-all" book they are talking about??

maggie said...

As of May 1, 2010 New York Best Sellers List has Kate's book ranked as #22.The previous week it was #11. So her new book NEVER made the top ten. Great News!

Jenny said...

Ewww, Lisa, I hadn't thought of that! But you could be on to something. Yes, TLC could show some of the practice sessions K8 & Tony were having (removing any icky clips of K8 of course) and then showing Tony teaching the kids a few steps too. I bet that's it.

And...while they had Tony at that meeting, I'm thinking they may have advised him to not Twitter about any future meetings with them. Welcome to the secret world of TLC, Tony.

Cry Me a River said...

I was thinking maybe they had T. sign confidentiality papers because he will still be around when filming is going on of the kids. You know anyone who sees those kids being filmed is forbidden to speak of it ever. Or maybe a gift for cooperating with the postive spin and permission to film him for the show. There has to be a "friend" in there somewhere besides Mr. Gray lurking in the shadows protecting Frock from her kids and the crew.

I know it's snarky, but I just can't see Frock letting the kids have serious dance lessons - afterall that is her "thing" and they would most likely be much, much better than she would ever hope to be and they would get more attention than her.

I think that is what the kids like about being filmed sometimes (not all the time) is because they do get one on one attention which they are sorely lacking from Mommie Dearest. I am sure it makes them feel special and they need that. Just look at all the attention they were getting from the shots. I don't think we will see that much of Cara and Mady this time or hopefully even Kate for that matter.

Maybe they learned people do not want to watch mean mommy make love to the camera while there are death curdling screams going unattended to in the background.

Kate knew ahead of us all that the book sales weren't going well, that's why they leaked the excerpt about the 7th baby. WE'RE STILL NOT INTERESTED KATE!

Kate's book has dropped from #11 on the NY Times Best Seller list to #22.

Tami said...

The last free discussion talked about comments on ROL. It doesn't bother me when they pick apart the anti-Kate comments because what they don't realize is that most normal people comment on an article and then move on. They don't keep coming back to try to argue with that person. I comment there all the time but very rarely do I go back to see what else is written. Once in a while I'll do a couple comments while there instead of just one, but that's it. They treat it like a chat room and that's why there are 5000 comments.

Instead of just asking people to go there and post their thoughts on Kate, ask that they also click to report the ones that the sheeple make. I did not realize that if a comment was reported 3 times it would go away. That's crazy! I'm sure they get rid of mine instantly. You will see my comments there all the time. I post under tamiv on that site. So..if anyone is going to go there to comment, also report the ones gushing about Khate and slamming GWOP. I like to go there and just write I love GWOP. You know they probably take about 6 hours out of their day to discuss that! Oh, and I'm sure they are reading this too since they all read here. Hi sheeple! I am very sorry for you...

kate's an idiot said...

TLC has invested in a lemon. They somehow think there are 10 million people out there who care about Katan because of one episode of JK8 with extremely high viewership. Interesting that of all those viewers, out 10,000 were willing to shell out between $8-12 to buy her latest book. I think that the Gosselins have very few fans at this point and that the vast majority of people who pay attention to them are doing so to watch the trainwreck. At the end, JK8 was nothing more than watching spousal abuse and mistreatment of the kids in real time. And the more Kate exposes herself to the public at large, as in dwts, the more people dislike her. To know her is to hate her. TLC does not get it yet.

Scruffy's Mom said...

TLC owns Jane and Khate ... They are BOTH losers and have repeatedly proved that over and over. Who care if he keeps hiring attorneys? He has proved over and over again: he doesn't follow through EVER. Actually, he might be more pathetic than Khate. At least she "performs" for her money. Someone please throw water on her, so she will melt and go away. As for Jane, he's on his way to getting so bloated, he'll pop if we're lucky.

Laurie said...

I'm reading the new James Patterson book (9th Judgement) and one line in it caught my attention: "...The more they talk, the less I believe them...".

Although not written about J&K, this line reminded me of how people are starting to feel about them now. The more they open their mouths the less the public is believing them as they say one thing and in the very next sentence they contridict themselves. I think that TLC made a tactical error when the brokered the deal for Kate to be on DWTS. She was out of her very controlled environment and was speaking without having her every word fed to her through an earpiece. The public has seen her for what she is and the tide is turning. The mask slipped and people saw the monster underneath.

shoemaker said...

any dance class with tony for the kids is strictly for filming purposes.

if kate wanted the kids to have dance as a a regular after school activity, they would be enrolled in a regular dance class near their home or school

For all we know , they could already be in many after school activities. I hope that im right and that its just kept really private

Kate's two left feet said...

I hope Tony did not sell out to TLC for an appearance on the show. Career suicide. He was talking about the possibility yesterday in town to TMZ. I thought Tony's current commitment with DWTS was enough. Wow... Just wow.

Hambone said...

Wow! Clearly Tony never really watched Jon & Kate Plus 8 and saw what a nasty woman she can be. He is so snowed by Clean Slate Kate and TLC that he can't see the forest for the trees.


http://www.seattlepi.com/tvguide/419271_dancing29.html



In this article Tony says Kate would read a new article written about her every 15 minutes and get upset about it. But in interviews she says she never reads stuff about her, that she's too busy being a mom, her skin is think...blah blah blah.

See Tony! THIS is just one smidgen of the Kate we know. Contradiction Kate. She's full of em'. Tony please go get yourself season 1 through 5 DVD's and actually watch them. See the woman you are defending and see why SHE built such a negative following. It's very insulting that you ( Tony ) insinuate that people who don't like Kate are just haters and must have miserable lives. We formed our opinions of her based on material SHE put out there for everyone to see!!!!! You act as if the millions of people just willy nilly decided to hate on a poor little mom from PA who was minding her own business.

I really used to like Tony, but he sure is making it difficult anymore the way he bashes Kate naysayers as if they have no intelligence.

sweet said...

Um he gets 5000 and doesnt have to get a real job as his kids will make enough to raise themselves and go to college. Bonus- wife is happy as shes living the celebrity life she wanted and, when he's not being a dad, he can bum around.
Sweet.

go away gosselins said...

Why would the stupid publishing company go ahead with a book by Kate Gosselin, that entitled:

"I JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW: LETTERS TO MY KIDS ABOUT LOVE, FAITH AND FAMILY."

Kate doesn't know anything about those subjects! They should have realized that if a cookbook titled, "Love is in the mix" would fail, so would another lying book...I don't get it.

Now, if Jon "wrote" an expose book on Kate....THAT would be a HUGE best seller! And because she exploits her kids faults and habits, it would be justice for someone to finally make a boat load of cash of Kate's faults and habits.

Jon's book should be titled, "I JUST WANT EVERYONE TO KNOW...MY SIDE OF THE STORY"

Stop TLC said...

Actually, we can tell there are no parents within earshot, during portions of the TLC filming. We are looking at the ROL photos taken from yards and yards away! No Kate overseeing anything(certainly no Jon). Maybe she's on her broom in the garage. Just a tiny part of an even bigger problem. You can't be everywhere at once with 8 kids.

Darcy said...

According to the updated (yesterday) NYT Bestseller list, Khart's "book" (and I use that term loosely) has dropped to #22 on the non-fiction hardcover rankings.

Do I hear the sound of freefalling right off the charts? I think someone else posted that the Amazon price has now dropped from $11 and change earlier this week to around $8.

It's A Living
---
WOW, thanks for linking to this post about J and K and the paps.

I agree that the writer here seems to have a lot of very specific knowledge--like where the paps park when they hang out at the MacMansion.

But the timeline is very fuzzy and doesn't make total sense to me. For example, the author writes that at first Jon just "came down to the fence" to sign autographs, then started chatting with paps. Then a series of more complicated relationships developed, the gist of the idea being that Jon tipped off the paps to where he "was going to wash his car" in exchange for them not reporting on his barhopping and "bad behavior." Then, after what sounds like months of this, the shinola hit the fan with the Deanna Hummel scandal . . .

So here's my timeline problem: if stage one is at the fence, they are already in the Mcmansion. Which is what, October 2008? Between that time and Deanna Hummel, I don't recall seeing any attention to J and K in the tabloids (not that I read them all the time, but I stand in line at the grocery store like everyone else). The first story I recall was that one in the Natl Enq., calling the whole TLC image a fraud, and that had a stock-photo portrait of the happy family.

So unless there was just some unclear wording or ordering of info, this story about Jon's popularity with the paps doesn't make sense. I'm not saying he wasn't barhopping over the winter of 2008-9, I'm just saying he wasn't pap-worthy material then.

Also, I just don't buy that Kate doesn't interact with the paps. I really think she has a few numbers stored on that fifth pink iphone of hers. And all that time with the kids in the front yard--no way that is anything but photo-ops for profit.

Saddest thing reported in that post: the most money paid for a Gosselin pic is of Kate spanking Leah--$72,000.

We've discussed this before on GWOP. The children have to get up at the crack of dawn to get on the bus so they can be driven 45-60 minutes to their school (you figure if school starts at 8:00, they need to be at the bus stop by 6:45 a.m.) We figured that school gets out somewhere between 2:00 and 2:30 so they get home around 3:30. By the time they get picked up and get home it's 4:00 p.m. The kids then have to do homework , eat dinner, take baths and go to bed by 7:30/8:00 p.m. That leaves very little time for after school extra curricular activities.

For the tups, on the days they're not in school, they're filming or hanging out with the nannies at home. Believe me, if they were in gymnastics or some other activity, there'd be photos. After all, it would be a quick way to disprove all of Kate's critics who say she does nothing with her kids.

Jon has stated that the older girls do sports at their school, but I'm not sure if that's true or not. You can't trust what either of them says.

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

Oh my...Hambone, I just read the article you posted at TV Guide. That does it! I'm now of the opinion that Tony really is totally clueless about K8...completely clueless. They talk on the phone every day, he wants to get his kids together with her kids for a playdate, he thinks she's wonderful and just can't understand why so many people "hate on her." I agree...somebody should loan him the DVD's of the show so he can get a clue (don't want him to pay $ for them).

When he hears K8 tell him that all the tabloids hate her, wouldn't you imagine that any thinking person would stop and think something like, "Hmmm, where there's smoke there's usually fire...I'd better look into this a little deeper." So yup, it looks like they definitely have a friendship going...for now. That's fine. Since he's apparently willing to go into it with blinders on, he'll just have to find out the truth the old fashioned way like so many other of her former friends, by one day being blindsided and banished from the mansion when he crosses her or no longer serves her purposes. And in the meantime, K8 will have yet another person to tote & fetch things for her.

LP said...

My personal opinion is that Tony became addicted to the spotlight when he was with Kate in that he bacame a household name rather than just another one of the professional dancers. People who didn't/don't watch DWTS know who Tony is now. He's just another fame whore. If he signs on with TLC he can kiss his DWTS career goodby!

Tom B was on TMZ last night and when asked about the ratings drop when Kate left said something to the effect that although they did drop a little they still had over 20 million viewers and were number 1 with or without her.

Still Disgusted in TX said...

I am confused by Jon's moving to PA--and his vagabond life. I thought he had a fancy apartment in NY. And now he is moving with garbage bags to PA? No furniture even? Did he lose the NY apt and get evicted? Just more proof of what phonies they are....the fact that he apparently could not afford the apartment, furniture, and owns little else makes the claims of monthly child support being $20K plus very questionable and unlikely. What a loser....these kids continue to be humiliated and mortified by the worst parents ever....

Cry Me a River said...

You can tell that T. is very ambitious. He loved the attention he was getting from being with Kate before he got demoted to the back door entrance only. One can't help but think that was because she did not want him to see what was going on upstairs. He would gladly chase whatever carrot TLC chose to dangle in front of him dancing all the way. He will also ride on Kate's coattails if necessry singing her praises all the way. You can just see it in some people.

What the producers never got about JK8 is that it was the entire family that people loved to watch...where they got the idea that it was primarily Frock I will never know.

The scenes with Kate and the kids were devoid of any type of emotion from her and the kids were robotic around her, no emotion whatsoever.

What mom would tromp across a field at 6:30 in the morning in a mini skirt, plunging neckline and hooker heels and heavy makeup with kids in tow, plop them down in a hot air balloon, manage to get herself in despite the fact that her skirt was tight she could not lift her leg, go up and never look out, never proclaim about the scenery, but instead sitting there making horrific monster faces at the kids who were not amused. And when the kids were asked if they were having fun they very politely replied no. It was pathetic. I think that was the last epi that I watched. It was just the strangest scene ever. Defies explanation.

Disgusting woman. Horrible mother. Laughing all way to the bank - could care less.

I happen to flip through Kate's book at the grocery store while hubby was looking at the magazines.
I was totally taken aback by the book's total lack of grammar, sentence structure, and just overall poor 'readability' factor.
There is an excessive use of semi colons, comas, fragmented and run on sentences in the book. I understand that Kate demanded that the publisher leave her writing 'as is', but IMO there is a readability factor that should be taken in to consideration. In the one page that I did read , Kate's self serving rambling was all over the place with her jumping from one thought to the next.

Ohio Buckeye said...

@Kate'sAnIdiot: I agree! The tv execs seem to use such flawed logic and metrics to gauge their own 'success'.

WHO decided that the number of viewers who watch a couple announce their divorce defines sustainable viewership?

WHO decided that the number of clicks on a blog define viewer interest that automatically and accurately translates into future ratings?

Sadly, it seems the TV business is following in the footsteps of the American car manufacturers' CEO's: they are using GRAFITTI on the wall to make their business decisions instead of doing the work of finding the REAL viewer writing on the wall.

Hey, TV Execs: It's Derby Day, so here's a metaphor for you: You have officially (and expensively) backed the WRONG Horse. "Reality" tv is nonsustainable because it is vapid. And K8G is the leader of the pack when it comes to your 'Also Ran' stable of 'reality' shows.

Smarten up, LA/NYC television execs. Take a lesson from Detroit. Expect no government bail outs for your years of lousy business decisions.

The answer to your query is: The SAME mom who dressed similarly (in the dead of winter yet!) to go to the dog breeder, where she insisted on being the one who chose the puppies AND their names.

Same mom. Same K8G.

Seriously, one wonders what genetics and or her growing up did to culminate in a shallow, mean-spirited personality like K8G's.

One wonders further WHY it is THIS type of personality tv execs foist upon viewers, insisting this is 'reality' and 'entertainment'.

jibberjabbers said...

#22 is still pretty good for a talentless woman exploiting her kids, sharing their darkest secret, admitting to "ruining" her marriage with her bad attitude and randomly placing bible quotes in several pages just to look and sound "spiritual".

A FLOP would be ranking in the 50's and selling less than 100 copies.

10,000 sold. That's pretty damn good for a crappy ass book.

Vanessa said...

Very good insight Cry Me A River,
you're right, WHO in their right mind would do all that you described? I really think she has a screw loose. She's got it in her mind that she's a star and no matter what, people ARE interested in seeing/hearing her. She's delusional and in need of a good hard look in the mirror. Right on about Tony being demoted to the garage door. Seeing all the "help" pretty much doing EVERYTHING she claims to do would put a glitch in the image she THINKS people have of her. Just own up to EVERYTHING kart! From the beginning of all of the bull%$#@ to this very day!

Sidney said...

Tony has been drawn in by the TLC Machine.

They offer money.

He doesn't have to say anything he really feels, he just has to say the RIGHT thing, do the right thing, smile the right way.

People do and say a lot for money. Why not? Being a millionaire could be nice.

He doesn't have to be sincere, he just has to be there, smiling, stroking, saying nice little phrases.

Ah, that TLC knows just how to prime their $$$babies.

Don't believe for one minute that Tony doesn't know the "real" Kate. He has had first-hand experience with her.

He knows ALL about her Royal Frock.

But money can soothe lots of situations, and he has been having meetings with TLC. Lots of soothing going on.

TLC has bought and sold Tony too.

KHATE said...

I agree with everyone. TONY has sold out!!!
Pathetic! Most certainly he will be on the show teaching the kids how to dance, and so KHATE and TONY can say how the little fit was "mizunderstood".

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

His interview is really very insulting to the people who watched the show and formed opinions of Kate based on the behavior SHE demonstrated in over 100 episodes. He talks as if the "haters" ( I don't hate her but I dislike her behavior very much ) have no brains and are unintelligent miserable buffoons. He says we don't know her. I beg to differ because she put herself on a reality show and expressed to the viewers that what you see is what you get.

It's a shame he has been fooled by Kate. It's pretty obvious she does have multiple personalities, and saves "nice Kate" for her celebrity friends. She would never be that friendly and roll on the floor laughing with lay people or relatives.

What an Idiot! said...

Cracked me up On ROL, Kate & Cara are running in a Marathon in Pennsylvania & of course near the back of the pack. But then you see good ole' Steve running right behind her!!! I thought this was hysterical. Why did she need a bodyguard there for Pete's sake. I live in PA & don't think the race was dangerous at all. LOL Unless she broke a nail or a piece of weave blew off her head. It was mostly Mom & kids. No BODYGUARDS. PLEASE Kate, get over yourself.

moobunny said...

i live in a big big city and in the book shop here in our largest mall , there is a display in the front with gift ideas for mothers day. None of Katie's books are on it. On the side of the store are the new non fictions and there are several hard cover covers.. ive visited the store everyday this week and ive never seen anyone even stop to look at them. i have not flipped through, im too embarrassed to be seen doing so

Rose said...

I just watched the Season 3 Christmas episode - you know, the one where the kids were told it was Christmas morning when it really wasn't, just to get the footage. There is so much wrong with that episode and Kate's narcissistic behavior, it would be worth devoting an entire thread to those 25 minutes. One thing stood out, though: while they were Christmas caroling, 3-year-old Hannah peed her pants, which she apparently hardly ever did, and she was very embarrassed. Kate then went on to say that Hannah is very modest and embarrassed easily about those sorts of things.

That was from your own mouth, Kate, not anyone else's. And with that in mind, gee, I wonder how that little girl will feel 5 or 10 years from now, when classmates and random strangers come up to her and say "Hannah pooped in Hannah's underwears!" (She is going to hear that so many times in her life, it will be a miracle if she grows up normal at all.) Or they'll bring up the episodes where they showed footage of 2-year-old Hannah having pooped in her crib, and her mother whining, "Oh, honey, why? WHY?" I wonder what will happen when the kid comes home crying from school on some days because her peers won't stop bugging her about it - or when she applies for a job someday and finds herself worrying if the person interviewing her has ever seen that footage.

For a woman who claims that her kids are everything to her and that they come first always, she has no problem revealing visual and verbal details of her "modest" daughter's potty training woes. Think she'll ever regret it someday? Not as long as the money keeps rolling in.

Sorry for this comment being slightly random, but it irritated me enough that I thought it was worth a mention. Again, it's just one of HUNDREDS of disturbing things I noted in one single episode. Those episodes are absolutely chock-full of evidence that Kate is nothing but a manipulative liar who cares nothing about the pain she inflicts on her children.

Why would Tony need to have a "general meeting" with TLC?? I had a scary thought....remember when Kate said somewhere that she wanted to get the kids some dance lessons? Well, could this be a future "very special episode" of "Kate Plus 8". Tony makes a special appearance to give the Gosselin kids dance lessons....I hope and pray not, but at this point, I don't put anything past these people.

LP said...

Actually 10,000 sold is not very good if the initial run was 500,000 as has been reported. Not very good at all....something like 0.04% - sales are dismal. My local bookstore has not sold one copy nor has the local Target.

What I don't get is how selling 10,000 books gets you to #22 on the NY Times bestseller list.

I just watched the video of Kate running a 5k and Steve is running behind her!! WTF!! Is she afraid she may be attacked by a crazed fan during the race? How funny is that! All the normal people are wearing t-shirts but of course Ms. Sleaze bag is wearing a sports bra. Anything to get attention.

Even more disturbing: how Kate was running ahead of her daughter! What kind of Mother DOES THIS!? Oh, yeah, I forgot, it's Kate. (No one was paying any attention for her to even need a bodyguard!!!)

Also, more proof Kate reads GWOP: She obviously is trying to fit-in with the Wernersville Community after being called-out about her comments, calling it "Ghettoville"

Katie running a 5K for charity....

SoCalGal - The number of books that are "bulk" sold to distributers, large book stores, etc. are all counted when the NYT does its lits. They don't count actual individual copies sold (like Amazon & other places do) and they also don't count how many copies are returned to the publisher by the booksellers when the books don't sell.

So DONE with the KON said...

Now that Kate's 'book' is tanking, is the book tour still on? I thought that someone here provided the tour dates, but I can't find the post. Anybody know what's going on with the tour? TIA!!

I don't know about Lisa, but I am filled with horrifying visions of Kate as stage mother. It is the best way for her to keep her own celebrity status--create a troop of the eight Gosselin kids singing. Or dancing. Or both. On penalty of severeness if they don't comply and smile about it, too.

As others have said, dance lessons can be great for kids and grownups to improve posture, poise, flexibility. What I worry about is that Kate seems to do nothing that doesn't feed into her narcissistic fantasies and master plan for fame and fortune. In this case, it is the fantasy that her kids, like her (cough) are super talented and beloved by the American public. Sorry--world public.

IMHO, those kids are very bright and very special--but that doesn't make them the von Trapps.

To answer your question, it's because I feel badly for those kids. It just feels like they are circus animals put on display for all of us to enjoy...."dance, Gosselin kids, dance.... I just find it hard to believe that all 8 of those kids are really into doing ballroom dance lessons. I know they aren't my kids and it's none of my business, but I feel badly for them. It just seems like another thing that would be cooked up TLC to lure in new viewers, because, let's face it, it would be adorable. Of course, this is just my opinion.....

What an Idiot! said...

Cracked me up On ROL, Kate & Cara are running in a Marathon in Pennsylvania & of course near the back of the pack. But then you see good ole' Steve running right behind her!!! I thought this was hysterical. Why did she need a bodyguard there for Pete's sake. I live in PA & don't think the race was dangerous at all. LOL Unless she broke a nail or a piece of weave blew off her head. It was mostly Mom & kids. No BODYGUARDS. PLEASE Kate, get over yourself.

5/01/2010 3:13 PM

I don't think the bodyguard was there for Kate, he usually isn't when she is in PA.

But I can see a bodyguard for Cara as she was pretty far back from Kate and walking a little. And Steve was back with Cara, not up with Kate, he seemed to stay with Cara the whole video.

http://www.gossipcenter.com/kate-gosselin/video/cold-open-kate-gosselin

She thinks she’s so clever. NOT!

gherkin said...

Funny how Kate ran the 5k race in her little jog bra and bare midriff. This is going to be her new summer look, I predict. Lots of bare midriff while she runs errands, etc this summer. Most others in the race had on shorts and t-shirts.

And, yes, I bet money talks and Tony has also now been bought out by TLC. He's obviously on their payroll and will only say nice things about Kate now. We'll see him on the new show teaching the little kids how to dance.

School Pick-Up Photo On ROL said...

The kids look sad in the latest school pick-up photo on ROL. The girl tup looks as though she's crying and one of the boys has his hand over his face.

KB said...

Rose said "or when she applies for a job someday and finds herself worrying if the person interviewing her has ever seen that footage."

Hopefully it will be people down the road who saw the show and believe, like us, that those children were not just exploited by their parents, but abused by their mother.

As the children grow older and particularly as they become adults and go away from home, the abuse they suffered will become more apparent to everyone, particularly if any of the children publicly open up about all that went on.

If Hannah wet herself in that episode, knowing Kate, she probably ignored her child's requests for the bathroom if she even heard them. I know people will say Hannah's her fave and wouldn't do this to her, but we all know that she, in general, tunes the children out.

Kate won't do this, if she had wanted that, she would have started it a long time ago. Making them performers takes attention away from her and we know how she can't stand that. She's never shown any real interest in cultivating any of the kids interests or talents, she only does that when a camera is on.

Besides, in order to turn them into something like that it would require effort and attention on her part towards them, something she's never really shown. She never seems to be bothered to drive them anywhere for any sort of activities. If it's not about her, it's not happening. She wants to be the center of attention and making them performers of any kind want to provide that in the way she believes she is entitled to.

It would be frightening though if she ever did do something like that to her children.

Annies said...

Also, more proof Kate reads GWOP: She obviously is trying to fit-in with the Wernersville Community after being called-out about her comments, calling it "Ghettoville"

Living in the same area, I honestly think Kate was hardly talking about Wernersville, PA as Ghettoville. The County seat is Reading, PA that is what I think she was implying, AND Reading, the city is in turmoil financially and crime stats are awful. NYC criminal transplants, drugs, gangs are in charge. I have to agree it is a ghettoville of sorts. Wernersville on the other hand has a small town main street and the rest is prettyy much rural developments, farms and single homes like Kate's spread apart, by no means a ghetto.

IDModo said...

Is it my imagination or does Kate look really stoned in those ROL pics? She appears totally disconnected from anything going on around her, including the kids.Either that or she is totally preoccupied with herself.And the kids do look miserable.
ROL of course is praising her for being able to do all the things most parents do in the course of a day.What a woman!

T. is going to regret jumping on the KG bandwagon. Nobody sticks with her for long; nobody, not even her own family. I think they are in actuality very much alike - he has big dreams (of stardom) as well. Don't bite the hand that feeds you in the process, T.

We are not haters, by the way, we just see this horrible woman exploiting her kids in every way imaginable and promoting herself as this great super mom which anyone who watched the show knows is a lie.

I think that woman running with her is her poor handler. She must be really good at her job. I wonder if that was being filmed for twisted Kate? She never does charity, oh, but wait they are trying to clean her up, good luck on that one.

emschick1128 said...

Even if Steve was there more for Cara instead of Kate as someone suggested, the question remains, do they really need a bodyguard during a 5k race anyway? If Kate was concerned about Cara's safety how about running with her instead of ahead of her. She just so full of herself. I don't think Steve will ever get a real security gig again after he's done babysitting Kate and carrying her purse.

Denise said...

Saddest thing reported in that post: the most money paid for a Gosselin pic is of Kate spanking Leah--$72,000.

dustlies, Kate would probably do it again if she could have the $72,000.

emschick1128 said...

ROL also posted a video of "Super Mom" doing errands and they used some of the phrases like "being a super mom", "doing what she loves best being a mom" It was totally obnoxious and so untrue. She was dressed to the nines also of course wearing 4" heels like we all so when we're running errands.

Geri said...

I hope someone can help...I am looking for the balloon ride episode on youtube. It's probably the only one I have missed seeing. I've tried all the search words I can think of to no avail. Thanks in advance.

Tami said...

If I were a 9 year old girl running with my mom in a race--where she was dressed like she thought she was a sexy personal trainer instead of a mother in a charity race, and where she ran way ahead of me to show everyone that she could--I would be so angry and embarrassed.

I can picture Khate telling Cara, "You can run but you had BETTER keep up with me and not make me look bad or I will leave you in the dust!" And then when she could not keep up, Khate saying later, "I can't believe you made me look like I could not keep up with everyone! I had to worry about you lagging way behind and now people will think I could not keep up! How dare you!" Now the interviews will come where she does like she did no DWTS and blame others, saying, "I could have given it my all but I was busy being a mom and making sure Cara was ok. If I didn't have to go back and run with her, I could have won the race!" Total fake photo op..

Tami said...

Purse boy was not there to help Cara. When has he ever been? No, he was there so Khate would not look like an even bigger flop as a mother for running ahead to show off. SOMEONE who knew that kid had to be with her, and if purse boy had run faster, he would have shown up Khate and made it look like he could run faster. No, he had to hang back; doesn't mean he was there for the kid though. He is there as a buffer for Khate in case someone yelled a question, held up a sign or tried to talk to her--then he could take them down.

Running PR stunt? said...

Myabe the lady running with her is her trainer/motivational/pace keeping person. At my former gym the owner used to compete in the NYC Marathon and he sometimes trained celebrities on marathon running. He ran side by side with them and let them get all the glory (i.e. he ran next to them unassumingly and let them finish ahead of him and encouraged them to smile and raise their hands over their heads in celebration when they finished). He was there to see they finished and kept pace and did not tire out, so perhaps that was Kate's trainer making sure she was able to complete the race.

silimom said...

Kate running - interesting, considering Jon was signing autographs to raise money for his coach brother's university soccer team on Saturday. And if Jon's doing something nice for family Kate has to do something nice too, and this was for their daughter, which outranks a brother. Simple one upmanship, IMO.

Also, perhaps they were last because TLC was their filming? Which would explain Steve's presence as well.

As for the Nike look - that's a CA thing. A lot of upper class soccer moms out here sport that look. And honestly, I don't think any of the kids will be nor should be emarrassed by it. It's not that bad a look.

silimom said...

Let's get some perspective here. By the time Cara is old enough to start her career, J&K will be a blip in the annals of television history. I don't think she needs to worry on that front. Believe it or not, most people have very little idea who the Gosselins are and could care less.

She has more to be concerned about with high school peers using it to cyberbully her. Cara strikes me (from the little I've seen) as being sensitive and it would get to her. Mady would simply strike back or would write the other teens off as "jealous".

pinkdiamond611 said...

Whoa. If I recall, Cara is an excellent athlete (takes after Yawn). She probably could have pulled far ahead of Kart if allowed to. And, do we have any evidence that Kart started the race and completed it? Or was that pic a photo op? There should be a print out of finishing times if the entire thing is legit.

Running PR stunt? said...

On one of the blogs someone asked why Kate was not wearing a number. I think if you look closely you can see that her t shirt with her number is tied around her waist...I guess she did not want to look like all the other racing Moms and daughters...No not Katie Irene she wanted to stand out with her flowing locks and her barely boob covering sports bra. Nice way to represent young girls in a charity run for them (said sarcastically).

Cry Me a River said...

Geri..

It is the Balloons and Butterflies episode if that helps. If not on You Tube might be on TLC.

lookatme said...

IMO, the photos of Kate running the 5 K looked more like a typical Kate Gosselin self serving photo opportunity as opposed to a mommy and daughter spending quality time TOGETHER at a charity event! The presence of Steve actually IN the race was totally ridiculous. If there were concerns about Cara's safety, then how about Kate, the PARENT, running/walking WITH Cara and the body gaurd walking/running next to them along the the side line? Kate in her sports bra 'get up' was totally obnoxious, it was a 5K charity event that she participated in with her 9 year old daughter, not the Boston marathon. Every attempt that Kate Gosselin makes to prove herself has the opposite effect; she merely comes off as looking even more narcassistic and self serving.

I am so tired of seeing Kate always TRYING to keep herself in the public eye. This woman needs to get help. I truly believe that she planned on taking fertility drugs to have multiples before she ever got married. She has that kind of crazy mind. Jon was just a victim to her scam.

Nicole said...

I don't see Steve in sight. Does he ever stay home with his family?

IDModo said...

Annies:If you check out the posting on STG, it's pretty clear that Kate meant Wernersville when she said Ghettoville.
A ghetto can also be a place where people are isolated from others, not in the mainstream- and Kate thinks NYC and LA are the mainstream. She may have used the phrase to denote "the boonies" or "Hicksville".
We all know how well Katie Irene can mangle the English language.

In my previous post I meant absolutely no disrespect to you or the moms in your area.

The point I was trying to convey is that K8 always looks TOTALLY INAPPROPRIATE for any activity she is doing , and more often than not looks like a tramp. Everthing is a photo op for her , an opportunity to show us all how much she does for her kids and how much she hates the paps, meanwhile, outfits such as the one she wore for the charity run scream LOOK AT MEEEEEEE, I'M HERE, OVER HERE !!!!

lukebandit said...

i went and saw the skit with jay and kate. her stomach was bulged out terribly. i think the sports bra costume is inappropiate for a mom of 8. or a mom period. it is a sports bra that is suppose to be worn under a t-shirt during exercising, running or sports. it would of been great to see Cara and her mother running side by side instead of kate's female handler and cara running with someone else. thanks ROL for changing the video. hipocits!

lukebandit said...

wonder if DWTS, tony, kate and TLC had this planned along. talking about the dance floor in the basement. after DWTS, then they are ready like freddie to film the kids with tony teaching the kids dancing. it would be wonderful if tony brought 2 young men just a little older than cara and mady so they could dance with them, they would be professional dancers.
if the girls wanted to, of course.

Missy said...

I'm sure Kate wants a dancing episode with the kids on her new show - she needs another reason to justify the large tax write off she will do for her house and the in-home dance floor installation. It's always a business decision, not a motherly decision. What a shame.

stopthemadness said...

What do we think of Twist of Kate, Kate's new TLC show that will be her being an inspiration to and learning from other mothers?
I predict a fail. I am actually more interested in what happens to Jon now than anything she could do along these lines. They have to remember, over half her watchers do so because they hate her. I think it's like 38% against, 34% for the and the rest don't care. Therefore any show that would capture the same bigggish audience would need to appeal to both. I think with this saccharine attempt at repositioning her, she'll be down to her sheeple who actually look at her as inspirational. Which should mean a speedy death of her new show since there cannot be that many morons in this country.

10,000 Sheeple said...

It was calculated and estimated, by a very math saavy person on this site- that there are 10,000 Sheeple!

Well, I went on Kate's Twitter account she created for the brief DWTS stint (to beg for votes), and guess what? Approx. 9,000 Sheeple following her there! So, we have learned 1 in 10 Sheeple voted for Kate. Hardly enough fan base for a book tour, or new "reality show." Folks only watched last year to see Kate's head explode before our very eyes.

Secondly, Jon's charity gig at the Green Turtle pub, for his niece's small town sports team this week, fetched way more fans than Kate's book signing in L.A. Another thing we can now add to our list of things Kate CAN NOT do well is running!

Kate does not have the ability or intellect to be inspired by or learn from other mothers or any individual for that matter. Kate has lived her life based on HER own delusional and self serving EXPECTATIONS of OTHERS (her family, her children, her now ex husband) which in turn results in her obvious ongoing resentment for any and all who have failed to meet her expectations. Let's not forget, the premise of Twist of Kate was formulated on Kate Gosselin 'FAN letters' and the individuals found worthy as they, first and foremost, met the Kate Gosselin EXPECTATION criteria.

I feel sorry for Jon.... Honestly, she's the one who made him feel like a trapped animal. It's sad really. Yes he's done tons of stuff the wrong way, but he loves his kids and misses them. She makes his life miserable I guarantee. I'm not a psychologist, but it seems to me that you can push a man so far before he cracks. It's reverse abuse. He tasted the freedom, not from the kids, but from her controlling. You can only push your feelings down for so long before they surface in some no productive way. Drug abuse, alcohol abuse, excessive smoking and promiscuity.

The latest photos of PR fueled Kate Gosselin on ROL are an exact repeat of same time, 2009. This time last year Kate was criticized for spending too much time away from her children ( book tour) and returned home long enough to self promote her 'motherhood' via invited paparrazi front yard photo ops. Proof positive, again and again that Kate Gosselin does NOTHING, including parent her children, unless the CAMERAS are rolling!

To the gals speaking about Tony and teaching the kids dancing.. Well I am not sure if this was said but last week one of the tabs caught Tony going thru LAX and they asked if he speaks to Kate.. He responded I speak to her every day. When the pap asked if Tony would be on Kates new show his response was " ABSOLUTELY" " WELL SEE WHAT HAPPENS" SO that to me says that is a for sure thing. Its already being spoken about. He will do it. DAMN IT!!!!!!

PA Midstate Mommy said...

Just looked at the pictures of the Gosselins on display in the front yard...yes, summer is here. Kart looks absolutely miserable out there with those kids. It's obvious she'd rather be anywhere but playing with her kids. Nothing but a scowl on her face the whole time...gee, what fun! I'm sure she was only out there long enough to get the pictures, then it was off to the spa.

And she has to go back to DWTS for the finally so we will have to see that nonsense yet again. Ya know I feel so bad for Jon. Granted once he got out he acted like a teenager that was allowed to get away with anything. But being barraged for years like that, hit and talked down to Id act like that too.( and yes some things he did were way questionable. ) Here is a question, does anyone know how much Jon is getting now from TLC? I read he is still pulling a check. And OF COURSE he must. He let the kids go back on tv.. Just curious as to how much and I wasn't able to find that anywhere.

There is a posting on gossipcenter.com of Halle Berry, Jessica Biel, & (I believe)Jessica Alba taking part in the Revlon Run/Walk event. All three were dressed in running outfits. Halle had a jacket with hip hugger pants.
She also wore a baseball cap.
Khate really doesn't have a clue.
I'm surprised her boobs didn't fall out of that bra.

"As for the Nike look - that's a CA thing. A lot of upper class soccer moms out here sport that look."
------------------------------

Yup, and that's exactly the point, it's the CA thing, not her usual PA thing. We all can remember when Jon took K8 shopping since she clearly was the one without any fashion sense. So if she's now dressing in the California style, then she's definitely being dressed by TLC stylists...again to keep the image up of a hip mom that the masses can emulate. I actually thought it looked good on her...the only thing that's annoying is that it's all being done for the purpose of branding. For me, that's pretty much the thing that casts a huge shadow over anything she might do. If it's running for charity or doing something with the kids, to my mind I always think to myself, "Oh that's nice...er no wait, I forgot...she's doing it as part of her job to stay in the public eye."

And about the ROL photo spread. She's out there rolling a ball and this somehow rates a huge photo and a headline? Cuz come on, it makes zero sense for a mom rolling a ball with her kids...on the front lawn I might add instead of the privacy of the back yard...to make headlines. So once again, it's their effort to keep her in the public eye on a DAILY basis between now and the day her show makes its debut.

Omg, if we haven't realized it before now, this would without a doubt add yet more proof that this woman is being totally handled & promoted by TLC as their little money maker. They apparently have ROL in their pocket.

I just want the Twist of Kate show to get here so it can crash & burn quickly. That's what it's going to take for the realization to sink in their heads that the party's over. Right now she's already approaching 14.5 of her 15 minutes.

And by the way, it's too bad that the woman can't be reasonable with the custody arrangement to the extent Jon has to yet again get a lawyer to get some time with his kids. I recall even K8 acknowledging that he is a good dad and that the kids love him. So she's clearly keeping him at arm's length out of spite. What a woman...but hey, I'm pretty sure she's "doing it for the kids." Oh my...gag me.

SoCalGal said...

Sorry guys but Tony always looked cheesy to me.
Another person selling their soul to TLC.
I wonder what Max thinks of his best friend now. Just another sell out.

Kate's Bargain Basement said...

Ahem, ahem... ATTENTION ALL SHOPPERS!!

This is "Kate's Bargain Basement" speaking, and until further notice, Tony Dovalani will not be appearing in a future TLC special entitled "Dancing With The Gosselins"... due to Kate's book tanking unexpectedly. After our general meeting with Tony this week- it was determined there is not enough room to dance, as Kate's Basement is filled with her new book. In the meantime, please Paypal Kate $8 bucks if you'd like a signed copy!

Well, I called this one..soon we'd see the Spring crotch-shot. Well, almost, but we know Kate so stay tuned for more!!!
----------------------
Oh no, live in fear, it's going to be the summer of kate's unnawears! How long until she starts doing what little toddler girls do & just starts pulling her dress up. Thank goodness there was no Can-Can dance on DWTS, kate would have been first in line for that one. It'd be so good if she'd just attempted to dress nicely for her age, it certainly would help her look better, wearing the very youthful clothing only serves to make her look even older.


Does Steve ever actually go home?

Interesting kate running ahead of Cara, reminds me of Joan Crawford & the swimming race she had with her daughter in their pool in Mommy Dearest. Gee did they purposely keep Cara back so katie could feel good about herself. What a disgusting creature.

It would be intelligent of Tony if he would take a look at other people who've been around & dealt with kate & see where they all are now. kate does not play well with others, no matter how submissive, how kind to her they are to her, or anything else, they all end up used & discarded none to pleasantly.

lukebandit said...

it makes perfect sense about tony doing a 180 about kate. MONEY. max even said that tony was his best friend and they had many phone calls and he was comforting him and giving him advice on how to deal with the kate. you know as soon as a dance lesson was done with kate it wasn't long that tony would call max and tell him how kate acted and how aggravating she was. i believe that when kate was telling tony about how tony needed to know how kate had to learn and he needs to know how to teach her or whatever, she blew up and said, i quit. that was real. but kate's tears weren't, fake crying. i would of loved to have been a fly on the wall when the producers took him into a room and tried to calm him down.

TLC has deep pockets.

gherkin said...

So, tell me this. Where does Kate get those ridiculous baby doll dresses? It seems like she has them in every color. And does she actually buy her own clothes? It never looks like she wears the same outfit twice. Is someone sending her loads of free stuff or does she actually have to crack open her wallet and fork over her own money (or the kids' money!)?

Kate's Nemesis said...

EXACTLY RIGHT TIGERFAN! Hurray...

We saw ROL post one year old photos of Kate and Cara going to the dumpster days ago, under the pretense that they were recent. In them, Kate's wearing another "BELLY TOP" and a shirt that reads "Try To Keep Up!"

Then she's running near dead last in a local charity "FUN RUN" (with Cara), dressed in similar garb... And ROL is there for the footage! Not a coincidence. Please, ROL and TLC- we are smarter than your average Mama Bear.

PJ's momma said...

Please forgive me if this has already been posted, but if Steve was in PA even on Saturday for a charity fun run, when on earth does he get to see his OWN family? He does have a wife and children of his own, does he not? It seems very unfair, paid or not. When is he home? I travel a fair amount, but I love HOME and all that goes with it. I couldn't stand to be separated from my husband and my dog and my bed and my peanut butter and my chair and my books and my THINGS about home I love - that much.

She wears a lot of Ann Taylor. She has been seen shopping at Ann Taylor fairly recently - or at least she was carrying an AT bag.
Now, who actually pays for her AT
clothes NOW is something AT will have to tell us. But rumor had it that AT gave Kate some clothes a year or so ago. This particular dress is from last summer. She has a lime green one very much like it that she wore for the back deck cookout on the episode that announced the Gosselin's separation.

What happened to Cara/Maddie's piano/violin lessons? After a few weeks... no more lessons!

Same thing will happen with the dance lesson. Film a first dance lesson for the show with all the cute tights, shoes, hair... then no more dance lessons.

Maybe the kids will be able to sing in a band like the Brady Bunch!

Cry Me a River said...

I guess all the swelling from the pre-DWTS makeover has finally gone down (you should have had that months before DWTS not weeks Frock)as now she is looking svelte and bearing her belly at every turn. Maybe that is why she was so sullen on Dancing because she could not wear one of those cut out dresses Pam and Nicole wore. Pure speculation on my part - my gut instinct - that I always trust (even from childhood enough to plan my family around - not). JMHO and all that buzz.

Those pictures on that most recent link do not even look like Kate. If I had not witnessed the transformation in progress, I would not recognize her anymore. I wish someone would post a side by side. Her transformation is much in the same vein of Heidi sans the quadruple F's.

Not that there is anything wrong with it but I hate the fact that she does all this and then proclaims she has to live a jetset lifestyle to "feed" her orphans. The rags go to great extremes to prove someone has had surgery, yet they let Frock slide the liar that she is. Or maybe it is because when it is all said and done she is still not that relevant.

Hippie Chick said...

What a differing contrast between Sandra Bullock & Khate! (Not that they can be lumped together!) I was reading Sandra's People interview; how she kept her adoption secret, away from the photographer's, how she wanted to protect her children. She spoke so well. She really wanted to keep her kids out of the public eye through the hell she just went through.
Sandra also did not bash her soon to be ex, Jesse James, hopes he gets the help he needs, and wants to co-parent & wishes him nothing but the best.
What a stark contrast to Khate, who does nothing but KEEP her & her kids IN the public eye. Khate wants so badly to be famous, but she's going about it all wrong. She should be taking the cues from the real stars. Khate will never be a real famous person if this is how she chooses to behave.
People are starting to see her for who she is. Her book tanked, she showed her true self on DWTS, her shows will bomb. I foresee her "fame" is coming to a bitter end. FINALLY!!

My first thought is that if someone were ever to give me one (not that I know anyone that insane), I would try to recycle it by shredding the paper and putting it in my compost bin. But then I thought, no, nothing toxic is ever supposed to go in the compost - and you know that book is toxic through-and-through! haha Leave it to the non-green Gosselins - there's no ecologically responsible way to dispose of that book!

1momski said...

Exactly, and this is how Radar continues to deliberately fan the Kate fires and get hits on posts about her. The say instigating things all the time like "Kate, who loves being a Mom best" etc.
ROL counts ou goading us anti-fans and getting the hits and traffic on their website. They are using us and the best way to make Kate and ROL fade away is to not post on their site, not click on their propaganda!

vltaylor said...

I saw of pic of Amy Roloff from that other TLC reality show (I think it is called Little People, Big World). She was sitting at what looked to be a computer table that had piles of paper on it. You can clearly see some of what is on one of the pieces of paper to her right. It says "STORYLINE CHEAT SHEET" in big bold letters. If this is supposed to be a reality show about their everyday life, why do they need cheat sheets to remind them what the episode is about? I wonder if Kate and Jon got the same thing for their show?

None taken. :-) I was just pointing out that she's obviously trying to go Californian. Personally, it's not a look I would go for, just out of all the things she could wear (and has) it's not as bad, IMO. At least her ta-ta's aren't falling out the top and there's no chance of a crotch shot.

Babs said...

"Word has it" (tabloid word, that is), that Kate's assistant is looking at school's in L.A. as well trying to get sitcom gigs for the kids!

Bets are being placed that they will move by end of summer, and that Jon will follow. This is all just rumor for now, but it makes perfect sense that she is dying to get back to L.A. since her gig on DWTS.

Kate, wake up!

Michael Douglas believes his son's five-year sentence for dealing drugs could be a lifesaver, and expressed hope that incarceration would give 31-year-old Cameron Douglas the time he needs to kick the drug habit that has plagued him since he was 13.

The 65-year-old Oscar winner has accepted a major portion of the blame for his son's problems, describing himself as an absentee father during Cameron's youth too concerned with building his career.

Kate, did you hear that?! Wake up!!

My Opinion said...

I thought I'd read that she was looking for guest appearances in sitcoms for herself.

IF she were marketing the kids and IF they actually got jobs the money would be theirs and not hers (although she could claim to be their agent and take some sort of a percentage). There are many, many child Asian actors that have experience and are well trained and are (dare I say it) cuter than her kids. There are kids who have been taking acting, dancing, vocal, etc. all their lives. Her 8 are really nothing special. Unfortunately for her they're not identical and don't really even look that much alike. Identicals or even close to identical are in demand but those that just look like siblings, not so much. We've been told that Mady can sing, but so can alot of other kids. Finally, CA has very strict child labor laws.

Rose said...

"If this is supposed to be a reality show about their everyday life, why do they [the Roloffs] need cheat sheets to remind them what the episode is about? I wonder if Kate and Jon got the same thing for their show?"

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

Oh, gosh, of course they did. No question. That's why the Gosselin kids had to be lied to in that Season 3 Christmas episode I talked about earlier, so they could put on their little fake Christmas. That's why Kate went on and on about she thought it would be a wonderful idea to bake cookies and sing Christmas carols door-to-door to all the people who have helped them over the years. You don't really think Kate came up with that herself, though, did you? No, no, no. It was a storyline, however you want to spin it, and Kate carried it out. Why do you think Jon reacted the way he did when Kate was talking about the cookies and caroling idea in the first place? She was perfectly comfortable going along with the charade, but he knew what a pathetic game it all was, and it showed on his face. It's funny because none of this had come out yet at that point in the show, and yet even then, all the signs were there.

Of course, Kate loved to introduce just about every plot by saying something like "The kids have been asking me for a campout trip for months now, so I finally decided it was time," or "Leah has been begging me for gymnastics classes, and I thought WOW! What a great idea for all EIGHT kids!" I wonder if anyone actually falls for her phony act at this point.

In some of the very last episodes, you could totally tell when Kate was literally reading a line from a sheet of paper. People have commented on those little isolated moments on this blog before. There were a lot of them, but one example is from the episode where the kids were all sent to school, and Kate said something like "I thought Jon would be in Vegas on the first day, so it was a big surprise when he showed up and helped me send the kids off to school." It was just an overvoice, but she didn't even try to pretend they were her own words! It was hilarious. And she wants to be an actress or a cartoon character's voice?!?!?

jibberjabbers said...

Steve, Cara and Kate are not wearing their numbers in the 5k run.

Which means they didn't pay the $25 fee to register. Which mean they really didn't help the cause and that they probably did it for filming or another publicity stunt.

I thought all runners were required to wear their "bibs" and that the bibs usually have their info and medical info on there.

Maybe not. But it does look like all of the runners besides those 3 have their numbers on.

Is it common for a 9 year-old child to run in a 5K? Just wondered.

MickeyMcKean said...

Don't believe everything you read in tabloids unless it is People which has a good reputation and checks their facts.

For example:

On the AOL homepage yesterday there was a blurb re Jennifer Aniston's attempt to get Brad's attention and after the man talks about Jen, he talks about Jon Gosselin and his recent $500,000 offer to be on the next season of DWTS.

Here is the video:

http://www.popeater.com/2010/05/02/jennifer-aniston-brad-pitt/?icid=main|main|dl2|link3|http%3A%2F%2Fwww.popeater.com%2F2010%2F05%2F02%2Fjennifer-aniston-brad-pitt%2F

BUT then when I get a tad curious as to why Jon would be offered so much money to be on DWTS - more than Kate!! - I find this article:

http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/36861755/ns/today-entertainment/

I have no idea if the story is just flat up made up by the tabloids or by Jon. But what I do know is that before DWTS started this season I saw the producer of DWTS state on THE INSIDER or ET that she would NOT consider having Jon Gosselin on DWTS. Think about it - most of America thinks that Jon cheated on the mother of his 8 children. Since when does cheating make anyone a "star" especially after the recent news of Jesse James antics?

Anyway, now someone has said that there is a tabloid in CA that is saying that Kate is having her assistants look at schools in CA, as well as kids in sitcoms.

IMHO the best thing for the kids would be if they were to move to CA as the child labor laws are in full force and effect here.

But I also think that since Kate's book has tanked and before her two new shows have started (and more likely than not...FAIL!), for Kate to move to CA with the kids would be a stupid move. But hey, since when does Kate listen to anyone except for her own PR spinners?

JMO.

Interesting kate running ahead of Cara, reminds me of Joan Crawford & the swimming race she had with her daughter in their pool in Mommy Dearest. Gee did they purposely keep Cara back so katie could feel good about herself. What a disgusting creature.


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

I remember this scene well.

Another similiar situation would be during the episode "Twins Play Mommy":

K8 has Mady and Cara attempt to make a hot chicken sandwich for lunch, yet she herself has never made a hot lunch for the kids. K8 seems to get sick pleasure out of making herself look better than her own children and also competing against them and "winning" . Remember how she ran ahead of the kids (in heels no less) to get first dibs on the pups?

Is she letting more people film in her bathroom. Goodness gracious, if they think kate looks fresh & beautiful then they are in desperate need of cataract surgery or they need to stop looking through the fun house glasses. Orange is not the new flesh tone & that saggy, jowly face is pretty darn far from fresh. I know several ladies around the 50 mark that could out dazzle katie any day of the week in the appearnace department & they haven't had any nips or tucks.

@Annie Lousie, lmao! Yes, best to keep that one out of your compost, the ground it would be put on to fertilize would stop growing anything for centuries. All the lovely tree gone to print that venomous book on.

Aw, poor katie's book flopped, time to hang your head because you're sure no Beth when it comes to writing. Too bad you hadn't kept that great friend, she'd have probably happily helped you with another book had you behaved like a decent human being toward her.

Have you guys discussed this at all?

It's from the entry on Wikipedia about the town of Wernersville, PA:

"Located just outside of Wernersville is the Wernersville state hospital. The hospital still has patients with mental health issues, but it also houses at present 250+ "residents" of the Wernersville CCC (Community Corrections Center). These residents are from the state corrections system and are either pre-release or probation. The center does not feed them so they are allowed to sign out three times daily to eat at the local pizza shops and diners. The state plans to increase the number to 360 when they see fit."

Does this mean there are potential pedophiles actually in that corrections program?

She feels svelt and oh, so cute.

Those baby-doll dresses only look good on petite, young women.

She is too old and much too big to even think about wearing them.

Remember when she used to wear tee-shirts, shorts, and bare feet?

Looking back, even though she was beginning to morph, she did look much more like a mother and much less like a exhibitionist.

Liberal Jewess said...

___________

Possibly. Also, possibly, murderers, rapists, and people guilty of burglary and assault. I don't think you can really blame people for living in a town that has a halfway house, even if they have children. And they are far more likely to be given notice when a pederast is released than when parolees of other serious crimes are released.

10,000 Sheeple said...

Well said about Radar Online. I was on last night to catch up on the ball rolling, and looked at half a dozen comments. Here's what I saw...

First comment was an exact copy of one I made here by a Sheeple, just learning how to read (super creepy... makes me want to take a long bath). Next comment was a ROL staffer chatting with another- beefing up the comments. I quote him in saying "Just EVENING OUT THE PLAYING FIELD!"

Um okay, Radar. Don't go on ROL, if you can help it.

Sorry if this has been answered already; I think it has been stated that the children DID work without proper work permits during filming of J&K. If this is true, have there been any reports of TLC, Jon and Kate being fined for making those children work without proper permits?

Is this what the state representative is looking into?

Thanks.

Hungry Journalist said...

Another juicy tidbit for any hungry journalist out there... (See comments above, also- re: Roloffs)

Yes, TLC has ruined yet another family, The Roloffs. There are scripted shows, neither Matt or Amy are wearing their wedding rings at this point, and they are living a sham marriage for the cameras and money... Just like Jon and Kate.

As long as TLC portrays them as a "couple", and keeps paying them for a "reality show", they will continue to live the lie!

IDModo said...

Church Mouse- If there are pedophiles in that program, at least they are CONVICTED pedophiles, and as such would have stronger controls on them than your average pedophile in the general population.
Pedophiles are everywhere and generally look just like everybody else, and that's why it's so dangerous for Jon and Kate to pimp their children out for all to see.I echo your concern for the kids. IMO the damage is already done and those children are being followed, at least on line,by a whole army of them.
That is the horrible shame of it all, and if anything bad happens it will be squarely in the lap of TLC and those fame whoring parents to explain why they allowed it to go on.Unfortunately that won't help the children who are hurt by this complete lack of moral responsibility.

readerlady said...

"What happened to Cara/Maddie's (sic) piano/violin lessons?"

On the show, Jon and Kate said that Cara didn't like the piano and quit after a week or two. Mady continued with the violin lessons and, apparently still plays, because there have been fairly recent pictures of her getting on/off the school bus with her violin.


Just curious - hwere was Mady on the 5K run?

It's been fairly well established that Mady doesn't care much for sports or outdoor activities. Maybe she didn't want to participate. If that's the case, then (I can't believe I'm saying this) - I applaud Kate for not forcing her to.

US magazine has a poll asking if Jon should accept cash (child support/spousal support) from Kate. Some of the comments are hilarious.

Mickey - those were my thoughts as well. First, that if any of the children landed a spot on a sitcom, they'd be better off than they are now. It's still very tough on child actors, but at least there are some laws in place that not only restrict the amount of time they can be filmed, they require that payment be placed in accounts for that child actor. Less opportunity for greedy Kate to get her grasping hands on that money. So if the choice is between sitcom or more child-exploitive TLC shows, I hope for the sitcom route.

However, just think of how many child actors are flooding Hollywood right now. Many with quite a bit of talent. Compare with the Gosselin children, who, bless their hearts, don't appear to have much natural acting ability or other talents that would make them appeal to a producer of a sitcom.

Imagine being a producer casting for a show and you see Kate bearing down on you, full stage mother mode and demanding concessions left and right. Then you turn and see a line of truly talented kids with semi-reasonable parents/agents in tow. Who you gonna cast?

If it weren't for the upheaval to the children, I'd be all for Kate stupidly moving to Los Angeles with visions of success clogging her little pinhead. Many try, very few succeed. With her borderline psychosis problems, she hasn't a chance, except as an oddity, cast on loser shows like Celebrity Boxing, The Fit Club, or Fear Factor. They pay something but not enough to eke out a living in Los Angeles. After you do those shows, that's when you drop nearly completely off the radar except for the glowing "L" in the middle of your forehead.

Yes, TLC has ruined yet another family, The Roloffs. There are scripted shows, neither Matt or Amy are wearing their wedding rings at this point, and they are living a sham marriage for the cameras and money... Just like Jon and Kate.

As long as TLC portrays them as a "couple", and keeps paying them for a "reality show", they will continue to live the lie!

IMO, viewers have caught on to the Roloff sham of a marriage for quite some time now. The original premise of Little People Big World no longer exists, viewers are now tuning in just see this trainwreck of a family spin out of control as a result of their own selfish doing!

Or could it be just the opposite. TLC has seen that conflict brings in lots of ratings. So they are making it look like the Rolloffs are in splitsville.

Now really, what would a divorce do for any of the Roloffs?

Just TLC feeding the ratings.

"Radar also reports every time she goes to the bathroom -- looking fresh and beautiful and being a hardworking single mother and uses single ply toilet paper."

WTF!! In what content did they write this? Did they write it as if it were a fact or write it in a funny way? Can you give the link to it? You know Joan Rivers made a joke about Kate going to the bathroom and having to use a whole roll of toliet tissue. Holy cow! I thought ROL was Kate's friend.

IDModo said...

When I read the article about the move to LA, I read it to mean that Kate herself was looking for work on a sitcom, not the kids.
Do they allow sitcom actors to wear little microphones in their ears so they don't have to learn the lines?
How about a job as an actor portraying an autopsy subject on CSI- she wouldn't even have to change her habitual expression.

RE: The kids and their activities...

There are late buses for Reading students who participate in sports and after-school activities.

------

Yes, but Kate doesn't want to make 2 trips to the bus stop if some kids want to stay late and play sports and the others do not.

She's way too busy for that. "We dont' have time for a cast to we Cara?"...

Cara: no.... But my ankle still hurts.

SoCalGal said...

Khate would bomb at playing a corpse. She wouldn't allow herself to be filmed in an unflattering light. All of that cosmetic surgery would have been for naught.

Kit said...

The thing about the Roloffs is that they are smart enough/old enough/experienced enough to have figured out that they can stay married, lead pretty much separate lives, and continue to rake in the TLC bucks. They've proven more than capable, with TLC's help, of sweeping any "scandals" or inappropriate behavior under the rug and keeping it there.

Jon and Kate both wanted to be free of each other badly enough to destroy their cushy gig. They're young enough to want to publicly date other people and/or be known as "single and available." They simply weren't willing to continue the sham.

Although I will say, at least Amy's and Matt's bickering and snarkiness goes both ways. It's not the one-sided attempts at humiliation, belittling, and domination Kate tried to impose on Jon.

Kit said...

Wow, TLC must be run by a bunch of monkeys, as in "monkey-see, monkey-do." First, they "cloned" their own shows about multiples and little people, they they stole the "hoarding" storyline from another network. Now this:

"If you are hungry, then I suggest you not turn the channel to TLC tonight. Your stomach may start grumbling if you watch the new six episode series “Best Food Ever,” which highlights some of the tastiest and most expensive foods across the U.S.A."

For those who don't watch the Food Channel, they've had a show for some time now called "The Best Thing I Ever Ate." Sound familiar?

jasmine said...

Since Kate and TLC are now best friends with Tony, I wonder if Tony will show up at the house with his own family for the tups birthday party. Maybe he'll be enlisted for paparazzi patrol, riding around the property on Jon's ATV. Steve will be demoted to running behind the vehicle.

Hard to Keep Loving Jon said...

Hey Guys!
I wrote sarcastically about the bathroom and TP.
It was meant to be a joke on ROL who covers her every glamorous/gorgeous/hard working/single mother movement (pun intended).

emschick1128 said...

Does anyone know if Kate has any girlfriends? Not that I think she could be a good friend to anyone being that she is so selfish. I would think that if she did they would be out with her sometimes during her busy tanning and shopping schedule or even out for lunch. I would guess that she probably doesn't. Not that I feel the least bit sorry for her because she created her own situation but it's obvious she is a very lonely,miserable person.

jonandkatewho? said...

Not sure where the article is that says Kate is planning to move out to LA and try to put herself or the kids on sitcoms, etc.

I don't see Kate doing this with the kids because of the stricter laws. I can't be sure though, because I can certainly see HER wanting to live there and be part of the scene out there. She thinks she is already a star so she probably thinks her state isn't good enough anymore.

I think somebody already stated the obvious but I will anyhow. The kids aren't talented that we know of, and there are tons of kids out in LA already looking for those few precious jobs that exist... can Kate really be stupid enough to think her kids would succeed out there? I don't really see how. She herself has no talent and can't even be taught to dance by a good teacher. I disagree with her assertion that she can sing. Aside from that we have hosting or acting and she has no personality and zero charisma.

It would be a foolish move if she did it. For some strange reason, she seems to have TLC in her pocket right now, willing to put on two new shows for her. I don't get it but whatever....she doesn't really need to move to LA right now with all of this going on. I hope the shows flop though, especially the one with the kids on it. I can't quite believe that they are happy to be filmed again, unless they are so lonely due to Kate's abdication from the mother role that they are desperate for attention. I hope not.

(((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((

I have often wondered the same thing. But let's not forget that Katie is much too busy and exhausted (and exhausted and busy) for a friend. And besides, she must sacrifice herself to save any potential friend from the hoards of paparazzi that (ok loudly and all together now)"hound her every single day of her life oh boo hoo hoo look at meeee!"

But then again she might have had half a friend for a minute and found out that the friend "sold her", remember? Because that is as much as a friendship with you is worth, Kartie Irene - about $10.50 if one can get it.

Sharon said...

We all know that Kate has no talent, but, she is TLC's little sweetheart. So, they will help her, in any hair brained idea she comes up with. They don't care that she is a laughing stock, and is making a fool of herself because they are making tons of money off of her. I believe they actually encourage her with these stupid ideas.

any dance class with tony for the kids is strictly for filming purposes...if kate wanted the kids to have dance as a a regular after school activity, they would be enrolled in a regular dance class near their home or school...
***********************************

I'm unconvinced of authenticity when it comes to anything Gosselin. How I wish it could be otherwise.

Kids and "dance lessons" is just another example of STILL making it "all about Kate" because it would fall back to the professional relationship SHE had with Tony D. as HER instructor when SHE did DWTS which she wants everybody to remember and not forget...needing continuing publicity, good or bad, for this nonsense of her own "career" on TV. TLC might even run a highlight or two of Kate on DWTS with ABC's permission since it's just more advertising for the show and also for the network. To me, it's so transparent. Nothing will ever be just for the Gosselin kids when it comes to filming; there will always be a hook.

It's what is so insidious, repeatedly...that under the guise of "doing everything for the kids," what it's really about is "doing everything for Kate" with the kids as her props but, gosh, this is such a tired concept that has been mentioned umpteen times here on GWoP. Sorry I don't have any remaining original thoughts on the subject but I'm running on empty when it comes to the Gosselin adults.

As I'm keyboarding, though, I did just have a flash of memory about something: a stage set for a local theatre production. When the actor would open a "door," it's of course a false one that leads to nowhere because it's not real.

Jon and Kate...two adults with fake fronts and just nothing on the other side of the door?

Or better yet, why not plant a beautiful tree line along that fence that borders the road? They could plant some really tall firs or some other bushy tree, problem solved.

anotherthing... said...

Kart in LA? Ill believe it when I see it it. Why I doubt it:

-she already has 2 (destined to fail) shows. Plus after the book fiasco and the DWTS joke... who could possibly want her? The tides are turning on her.

-the kids (tho cute) have no talent, and it appears as tho most dont adore the spotlight & wouldnt make the cut with hundreds/thousands of talented adorable kids trying to get parts

-the money factor... when is the TLC contract up? she cant work for unapproved others while shes theirs, right? whatever they pay her cant be enough to live the way she wants to live....

Bottom line: Sure, she could 'wish' to move to LA and make it big. To dangle on the arm of a celebrity. To have big show. To really 'make it'.

But I think maybe shes dellusional enough to do it; Possibly. She'd fail. Miserably. Laughably.

Her $1.2M house may be a lot in PA but in LA she'd get little more than a shack. She wont get another show. When TLC ditches her, no one else will pick her up. She will continue to be a joke; a joke that she doesnt get. She will turn into a Dina Lohan or a Joe Jackson as some of you also predicted... and her kids will turn on her as soon as they are old enough to think for themselves.

And all that Kate will have is Kate: and that is the ultimate punishment. She will be stuck with herself. And if we are subjected to the part of her that she deems appropriate for the public to see.... can you imagine what she conceals as too nasty or 'raw kate'??? EEEKKK!!! That is karma. That is her future.

Enjoy.

kate's an idiot said...

The big gut is back in the red sundress...guess she decided to go Spanxx-less.

jibberjabbers said...

Kate is still in good standing with Jamie Cole Ayers. I'm pretty sure Kate even promised Jamie a spot on her new reality series...

After all, She did move from wherever she was from to PA to help Kate out...

They were both seen with one another 2 weeks ago at the airport..

Wonder what Jamie's role is on Kate's reality series?

StoryLady said...

Let's look on the bright side!
If Kate did actually want to move to LA to get the kids involved in acting, the kids would get:
Speech therapy, but they can call it 'acting lessons.'
Stricter child protection laws. No wooden spoons allowed in California.
It's a start.

Hungry Journalist said...

@unless Jon Has A Secret Plan...

Excellent post and tremendous insight. You could be the Hungry Journalist we are all "CRAVING"! (As it certainly is not Ms. Gosselin- with her current "book situation")

That is all... Bravo!

observer said...

I think the kids will be filmed dancing with Tony on K*8 because Billie Bush gave her the kids dance shoes and all were just the right size!!!!

Hard to Keep Loving Jon said...

Oh my..... I did lower myself to watch DWTS and I was wowed by the steps and fluidity of movement. No way in hell Khart could have come close. Don't they have some sort of filter to keep out the in/un capables? Buzz I get, but Khart............what a shame/scam on the American viewing public. She's going to look like one sorry PS for the reunion.

Classic Kate said...

I love the Liisa K. comments about the Target Giga Ball! I know they are from there, 'cause I have a greedy friend who begged for them for her wedding. "Classic Kate"... Also came from the SNL show when Justin Timberake is in Target doing his "Classic Peg" spoof with Kristen Wiig... I love it.
