Honey, Does This Blog Make Me Look Fat? said...

So I saw the ads on TLC...SHE is back!!!!

Oh, my!

BeDoneNow said...

OK I cant sleep so I got up and came on here for a minute. It is 1AM. However I am confessing right up front that I am in a NIGHTGOWN and no bra! I could throw the crocs on with this I suppose, in order to get in dress code for posting. However they are only black, not the colors of the rainbow that the Gosselins wear.

Canadian Mom - hugs!

Ohio Buckeye - I am in Summit County!

By the way GWoPers I expect to be kept in the loop regarding any future dress codes, secret handshakes, decoder rings, passwords, or other important club business.

(and now I hear there is a specific waddle I must learn? geez).

Tami said...

Khate is going to fly on DWTS? So we are finally going to see her using her broom? Can't wait. I hope it flies off and never comes back.

SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

Probably Tony will just sling her aroung some more, while Kart doubles up on her 'meds'.

sourpatchbaby said...

Well, I guess it was fun while it lasted and I can never come or post in this blog again. From the time crocs went on the market I wrote them off as hideous things. I've never worn one of those things. Gauchos, I had to look up pictures to even figure out what they were. Thank God my mom never forced me to wear those things. I've never owned a tube sock in my life, I like short colorful socks (I buy ones called opposocks which are color coordinated mismatched socks. Yeah, I'm weird like that). I do grind my teeth when I'm upset though. But I do it unconsciously and stop as soon as I realize it.

Heck, I live in a tropical paradise and my entire wardrobe consists of feminine dresses and sarongs. Can I be the mascot at least? Purty please? I can bring cookies to waddle training.

Sobby McFibberpants said...

I must apologize for I have been slacking on my devotion to GWOP.
In the last few weeks, I have read that this site requires me to pay a monthly fee (that I have yet to send), and now I see I've failed to wear the proper uniform!
Please tell me where to send my 6 (was it?) dollars, and I vow to spend my entire weekend scouring the thrift shops until I find rayon gouchos to wear with my Steeler crocs. That is if you all will still have me, of course.

Also, might I add a sash (I'm thinking gwop-scouts) to my uniform?
I'd like to sew on a patch to reflect each time I've recognized a Kate "what not to do" bad mommy moment, as well as one for fighting the urge to break into a waddling 'jellus' fit after seeing Pennsylvania Slim in her loincloth, or one of the many babydoll dresses she might borrow from her daughters' closet this summer. *Gouchos+Crocs+Sash=Goodtimes*.

Can't See Sheep said...

@Sobby McFibberpants, LOL! I love it gwop-scouts!

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

I can't resist, I'm going to be mean & petty so those of you who don't like this sort of thing, don't look. Avert your eyes! Appearance snark warning! :) That is going to be some heavy duty wire they lift her around with. They're going to have to use harnesses they'd put on a Clydesdale. Super industrial! It'd sure make it easier on Tony if she was attached to wires when he has to fling her around like dead weight, I've seen sacks of feed land with more grace than kate, poor Tony is going to get a hernia, I wonder if he has this type of heavy lifting in his contract. Phew, okay, got that out of my system.

Jane in California said...

I'm sure others have posted about this already and their comments will be approved before mine - but just in case -- I see that Kate's minder, Mr. Nield, must have been off the job briefly in Florida, as Kate yelled at some fans at The Cheesecake Factory who dared approach her and ask for her autograph. She supposedly yelled "No! Let me order and eat my lunch first."

Staff at the restaurant also say she was a cheap tipper.

Keep it up Kate, let the world see you for what you really are - you miserable leathery bat!

jibberjabbers said...

Kate can't dance so ABC is going to rig her up to a rope and lift her up from side of the dance floor to the other.

Maybe they'll attach 4 more ropes for the arms and leg and move them accordingly (like a puppet) to the music since she has no rhythm..

I think I'm going to photoshop that. lol

StoryLady said...

Okay. I'm confused. Is our $6.00 monthly Fee to Post to pay for our uniforms?
Are our uniforms supposed to match?
Are we required to wear our uniforms EACH AND EVERY time we post, even if it's the middle of the night?
I like Sobby's idea of having a Gwop Scouts sash to go with our uniforms! I would even be willing to pay $6.50 a month to cover costs.
We could sell organic Monkey Munch Fluff cookies to help with expenses for the badges we can earn!
In addition to Sobby's suggested badges, we could also earn a "Can Do" badge by sitting in a white plastic chair in our driveway and yelling.
We could earn a "Clean Slate" badge by buying a wig from a costume shop.
Photos could be sent to the moderators for verification, since we don't have in-person meetings.
I know we will all follow the rules, cuz after all, we want to get that "Contract Honorer" badge!

Hungry Journalist said...

If you want ratings gold... Wear Crocs.

The choice for every GWoP woman!

One Angry Beaver said...

I can't stop laughing... hysterical.

Where do we get the Dittos?

Ohio Buckeye said...

If she MUST come back, then I'm hoping for another K8G Does The Paparrazi(sp?) Polka. That was probably THE most UNINTENTIONAlLY hilarious segments on tv EVER.

K8G in that godawful red dress, standing with The K8 Scowl on display, holding a tabloid in each hand and THEN she 'danced'. (I laugh at the memory still!)

SNL could not have come up with a better skit. Lovin' me some YouTube.

So, come on, Cinder Block Feet With The Big Flintstone Toe, bring it on. We here in Croc 'n' Gauchoville await you with our usual warm welcome.

mama san said...

I don't own Crocs, dangerous to run in, BUT I found a pair gaucho pants!! In preparation for a move I went into the attic crawl space to remove boxes. There they were. Lordy be. Does that make me some sort of leader? Must I buy crocs? won't my Skechers do?

MoonandMango said...

At least we gnash our dentures with our mouths closed...something that Miss Katie never learned to do with her chewing gum!

MoonandMango said...

"So I saw the ads on TLC...SHE is back!!!!"

Saw the new ads on TLC to the tune of "Wouldn't It Be Nice." I wonder if TLC paid Brian Wilson/Beach Boys the required fees necessary in order to use the music from this song.

pinkdiamond611 said...

I can understand the gouchos and tube socks. . .but crocs????? I thought that was part of the sheeple uniform since the Kons received a zillion trillion free pairs and make the kids wear them even though their toenails bleed and fall off.

Hippie Chick said...

Had to post about crocs...my best friend & I go shopping together quite often together & when she shows up in her crocs, I make her go back home & put on more suitable shoes that I can be see with her in.
Those ROL people need to think of some more insults, dontcha think? Ouch, my feelings. LOL

lukebandit said...

@Sobby McFibberpants, very funny!
PA Slim in her lioncloth! i think this bikini is way smaller than the orange one she sported last summer. the "photo shoot" which i would like to call before Memorial day white gate is disturbing. she doesn't really have any makeup on that i see. she looks older than 35, i know that. did she just go slumming on that photo shoot instead of having it in a 5 star Obama approved hotel suite? maybe our katie irene is slacking. it is going to be fun watching kate fly on DWTS. is she doing the Uulie Andrews character of the Sound of Music? or on the Disney movie with the song Supercalofradulisticexpaladoshus, Chitty Chitty, Bang Bang?

she is so desperate and so is TLC.
Saw the pictures of Jons new girlfriend meeting the kids at the bus stop yesterday.

What a meeting! the kids were getting off the bus and the GF was walking away from them with her back to them checking her cell phone. you would think she would have enough respect to put the phone away and stand there like a lady and greet the kids. what a loser. jon looked like he was dreading it. the kids weren't really smiling all that much. they were probably nervous about meeting daddy's lady friend.

i wish jon would drink lite beer.

poor kids.

bluesclues said...

Saw the photo of Kate on the beach with the kids .

I don't thinks shes as "|rockin" as they describe her.
She looks more stumpy and bulky, than lean and toned.

I think if she wore a suit with more coverage, she would actually look more attractive.

There's nothing wrong with showing a little skin, but why does she have to wear the skimpiest of outfits when with the kids.

bluesclues said...

Also saw the picture of Jon and his girlfriend with the kids.
I think that was done to provide a photo op to ensure more exposure of the Gs in time for the new show. Period. Remember Jon is a paid employee of TLC too even if he is not on camera

congrats k! you did it said...

Kate has basically sold-her kids childhood and privacy ,trashed her husband of 10 years to any
one who would listen and now parades in hardly there outfits for the cameras.

Who says you need to have talent and skill to be a star!

TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT

I read everything from 5 to 30 to 50 dollars a month!! I just figured one of our fab mods would start a thread for Love Offerings to the Anti-Gosselin Gawd, and we would all sip the koolaid together and pony up in some church somewhere to pay! Every month! And the mods would be dabbing at their dry eyes. (Mods I love you. Just kidding - you know that right?)

Since I tore the medial meniscus in my right knee in Feb, I have a bit of a limp right now, so I volunteer to choreograph the group waddle. All in favor? Props may be involved.... wooden spoons and such...

Ya know - Kate is basically pretty boring and idiotic and I havent posted much lately. Nothing like sheeple to turn a dull convalescense into a giggle fest!

Tami said...

I see a lot of comments on the GWOP 'uniform'. You know..people who go on and on describing someone they don't agree with on a tabloid website comments section are just projecting. Sadly, that person must really look like that as I'm sure quite a few sheeple do. They live vicariously through Khate. It's not even worth defending yourself over. I've got to say though, WHO would stomp and gnash their teeth seeing an attractive person in a bikini? Probably some weirdo. I don't find Khate attractive in the least; when I saw that pic I instinctively closed my eyes and threw up a little in my mouth. I literally winced I was so embarrassed for her. However, if I see a picture of someone like Jennifer Anniston, Kim Kardashian or Pam Anderson in their bikini it doesn't make me mad or make me stomp around. Why would it? Do people really get angry when they see someone who looks decent? That sheeple must, or she would not have mentioned it. They have some serious self-esteem issues. But anyone would would admire and wish to be like Khate GOsselin needs help anyway.

Tami said...

. I've never worn one of those things. Gauchos, I had to look up pictures to even figure out what they were. Thank God my mom never forced me to wear those things
**********
I actually had my mom buy them for me in elementary school when they came out. I was very fashion forward! Later when knickers came in fashion I got lavender corduroy ones : )

KatesNoMom said...

Almost had iced coffee spit all over the keyboard when I read "gauchos". LOL LOL GAUCHOS?! I'll have you know, I was the epitome of FASHION on my first day of high school in 1976 in my GAUCHOS!!! If I look hard enough, I'm sure they're still at my mom's house.

I've got more class in my pinkie toe (and that's a tiny toe on my REAL SIZE 5 foot) than Kate and her Kreepy Krew would ever hope to have.

Bring on the gauchos!!! (and yes, I do own a few pairs of crocs, too.)

Yolanda said...

Here's a video clip of Julia Roberts talking to Oprah about her twins.

http://www.eonline.com/videos/v53983_oprah-peek-.html

Has Kate EVER talked about her children like this?

What a difference!

fidosmommy said...

Me? I think I'll just throw on a muumuu and call it a day. I had one to wear around the pool when I was a kid - in the 60's. Bright pink floral. Maybe I could find a similar one on some antique clothing website and call it my
"GWoP Get-up".

Sorry to be a rebel. I never did like uniforms. I'm my own person.

N.E. Psychologist said...

Okay, having caught up on the comments I don't feel so bad about missing the dress code memo
Thanks for the laughs (and education -gauchos?) everyone.
My shoes are Dansko and Taryn Rose (bought on sale) My gardening clogs are from Duluth - does that count?

I'm going to have a book tanking party when Kate's book hits #10,000 on Amazon. I'm planning it now since it won't be long until this event happens. I'm going to the thrift store to buy gouchos to wear with my new crocs and extra long tube socks. If I find a comfy polyster leisure suit for blogging, I'll buy that also.

I feel sorry for the abc producers who have to come up with something anything for kate to do on the show

can you imagine the late night brain storming session. How can we make Kate dance without her having to do any actual practice or hard work

laura t said...

i would hope the first meeting of Jon girlfriend was not when the kids got off the bus after a day of school in front of classmates, parents and cameras.

i think that was just staged for radar or whoever pays them for tabloid shots

Vexatious said...

While waiting to get a haircut, I read through the October issue of US Magazine when the divorce and all hit the fan. In the article, an 'inside source' claims that it's Jon who alerts the paps to Kate's whereabouts just to annoy the *hit out of her. Hmmm . . . how would he know where/when she'd be somewhere? I wish this whole debacle was over and done with.

On a side note, since I am a contract honorer, I have to admit that I am NOT in the official GWoP uniform as I'm posting this. I'm wearing my son's baseball team's shirt, black shorts, and tennis shoes. My uniform is, um, at the cleaners. Yeah. I will humbly submit my fine with my monthly dues. :)

JJ in WA said...

I went to ROL to see if Lindsay made it home and there was Kate posing with some sheep. She had on workout clothes and some ugly high heels! Last time I went to the gym I wore tennis shoes-what the heck?

Also, about the stupid bikini. We assume she wore those ugly frocks because she had to look like a "mom"-so why is she parading around almost naked in front of her kids. I have a 16 year old son and always dress nice but conservately around him and his friends. They are so over exposed to everything today as it is-It is only normal for a mother to want to save a little for his imagination.

She is such a hyprocrite and I have never felt so much contempt for someone I don't know :(

Lucy said...

i've got no strings said: How can we make Kate dance without her having to do any actual practice or hard work?

Well as Jack Nicholson as The Joker said (She can) "dance with the Devil in the pale moonlight". The Devil aka TLC.

Monster Mommy said...

So, Kate is going to be "flying" on the DWTS finale this week?

Ok, go with me here...

Kate appears up in the DWTS "rafters", dressed as Mary Poppins (big hoop skirt, parasol and all)... She takes flight like a "747 outta' LAX", finally landing on Tony- playing the part of the Chimney Sweep!

She breaks into song... "Just A Spoon Full of Sugar"... In the most delightful way!

Well, she said her voice is her best quality (Insert evil grin).

Got my CROCS on... Cheers!

wildflowers said...

So when Kate is between jobs, she retreats to some warm location where she can lounge on the beach and soak up the rays, while her eight children are being put to WORK.

Geri said...

OK you all are too funny!

Story Lady, loved your post.

JibberJabbers, Kate "flying" is very well done!

Hilarious stuff, GWOPers!

Laughing too hard to look for my tube socks right now! Thanks all.

Kate's Nemesis said...

Hey Jane in California!

Just wanted to clear up the Cheesecake Factory incident. I believe that took place about a year ago... Around the butterfly sanctuary episode. They visited FL then, and I read about what a witch she was.

Kate was an ass... Kate did not tip well. Just like when she is out here in CA. She was leaving (very) cheap gratuities at STK and Mr. Chow as well. She has no shame.

Nobu, Nobu... I want Nobu! Here's to hoping she chews that Kobe well, with those veneers.

MoonandMango said...

"Got my CROCS on... Cheers!"

I went shopping today and saw a pair of mighty spiffy croc flip-flips. Not bad looking things. I was tempted, but then realized that I'd have to splurge for gauchos as well. Back in the day we called the short ones "culottes." And since I don't gnash my dentures and always lose one tube sock in the dryer, I figured that the uniform wouldn't be complete, so I passed on the crocs.

barbee said...

And isn't TLC paying Jon's child support to her? thought I read that somewhere and it makes sense because where else would he get the $$$$$$ to pay it? Note, I cut the number of $ signs down to six from my original 8 because she never remembers the twins so obviously they are not contributing to the cash inflow she so desparately needs.

I'm about gosselin'd out but AM waiting (not so patiently) for Tony to drop her one of the times he's flipping that side of beef around. It is ridiculous when he puts all the fancy 'footwork' into their routine and it is all stuff that 'he' is doing. oh, well, one more week and she's off that venue. Don't understand 'why' she is getting all the promotion (and when she was still in the competition thought it was grossly unfair and unprofessional the way they were touting her so much - giving her an advantage over the others). It still comes down to, who is she doing what with or does she have what on, that she is STILL around. We've all figured out that she has no talent, is full of herself but they just keep giving her more and more...??????

MoonandMango said...

"I suggest lime-green."

What is the "uniform" for male bloggers? Certainly not gauchos! LOL!! Nehru jackets, or polyester plaid snap-up-the-front leisure suits, featuring see-through floral shirts with collars the length of a football field? They shouldn't forget the gold chains and "Uncle Eddie" (National Lampoon) white plastic loafers!
Maybe we could all get together for a group photo!

MoonandMango said...

"Kate was an ass... Kate did not tip well. Just like when she is out here in CA. She was leaving (very) cheap gratuities at STK and Mr. Chow as well. She has no shame."

I don't believe she knows how to tip well. Perhaps she can't figure percentages. She figures she's still eating at the 9th and Marion Diner in Reading.

Sam said...

I take great offense at how stupid sheeple make fun of crocs. That is the signature uniform of one of my favorite Iron Chefs, Mario Batali, Khaki shorts, colorful socks and crocs. And I don't think anybody else can be confident or cool enough to pull it off like Mario. Mario can probably throw together a multi-organic veggie salad with
1hand before Queen of the Damned finishes making a statement to the camera.

Kit said...

Kate Gosselin looked unusually relaxed Friday as she tanned, shopped, practiced and posed...

Of COURSE she looked relaxed! She's away from her children and their "loud unloving outbursts," and back in the lap of luxury being catered to by syncophants.

marce said...

I just saw a commercial for a new show from Wolfgang Puck, Kate was on it..This women is not going away, In 5 years i have signed every petition, whatever, to get these kids off the air. Not only are they going to be shown again, but Kate is still getting new gigs, thanks to her friends at TLC..The state of Pa could of done something ,they didn't, Jon ,who I have always liked could of done something ,but took the easy money instead...This women has nothing, no talent, no skills, only her 6 little meal tickets to fall back on ( i am not including the twins)...As a mother of 4 kids, my youngest is 18 year old twin girls, I, like all us mom's know, Kate has no idea what the future holds. My little twins were so cute at 6, like all kids, then they hit the pre-teens, then the teen years.Kate wll never be a star in any sense no matter how much she or TLC wants her to be. I can't wait to be hearing about her in a few years, she will be blaming the kids because everything she has done was for the kids/ Jon should of need his contract with TLC and write a book.. even with my unemployed husband, that is one book i would of bought.. Now let me call my mom and thank her for being the best mom, and allowing me to have the best childhood.

readerlady said...

Okay - first off - I'm not in uniform. I'm wearing my nightgown and crew sox (my cat bites my toes if I go barefooted). I used to own a pair of gauchos. They were denim and I wore them to work occasionally (pants were forbidden but for some reason gauchos and culottes were okay). I will never own a pair of crocs. I tried a pair on once and they wouldn't stay on my feet when I walked. Hope my post makes it past the mods anyway LOL. I hope, when Khate goes "flying" on DWTS, that they have plenty of counterweights handy. Otherwise, she's going to plummet to the stage floor in double quick time. If she does a take off on Mary Poppins they'll have to change the name to Mary Poopins and the song to Just a Spoon Full of Organic Sweetener Makes the Medicine Go Down, because we all know she never allows those kids to eat anything that isn't organic (snark, snark). Will they have a cold, dark laundry room with plenty of floor room if the medicine comes up?

Canadian Mom said...

I wonder how much life insurance TLC has on Kate...

and the kids...

Finally got to see Michael Moore's "Capitalism: A Love Story". It made me aware that big corporations take out life insurance on their employees...

Exhausted said...

Tanned and shopped? I defy you to find one parent of 8 kids (under the age of 10) who can tan and shop and relax on their own. I will buy you an organic cow. What a mother bear indeed!

@Ohio Buckeye, I love it, I love it! Paparazzi Polka, that would be hilarious! You're right it has got to be on of the most unintentionally hilarious TV segment ever.

@MoonandMango, all that has come about does make you wonder how many other less than legal things TLC has gotten up to. Now you've got me wondering if they paid the necessary fees to use a part of that song.

@ jibberjabbers, LMAO!! You never disappoint!

bluesclues said...
I think if she wore a suit with more coverage, she would actually look more attractive.
---------------------

Precisely, sometimes showing less skin is actually more & I do think that would work in kate's favour. I mean how much old orange coloured leather do we need to see!? Sorry, couldn't resist, but on a serious note, I agree. Given her build it would be more attractive, all the bikini does is divide her up horizontally so many times she ends up appearing shorter & stockier than she probably is. Then there's the camera that adds another ten pounds, it all ends up not so very flattering.

Ohio Buckeye said...

@Can'tSeeSheep: Love your description of K8G as "old orange leather". And you are so right: K8G is a classic argument for "less is more", i.e., unless you have a truly great bod, showing less of it is usually more flattering than showing more of it. A swimsuit can cover a multitude of 'sins', and we can all now see that K8G has enough 'sins' to warrant an Omar The Tentmaker-style coverup, including her 1970's earth-tone-orange skin.

And, memo to LeatherFaceK8: good luck in a few years explaining to your twins WHY they can't over-tan and strut their stuff at every opportunity as they've observed Mommy doing throughout their formative years. The hormone train is just around the bend in Gosselinville - good luck with that, K8G.

Betty Boop said...

The twins will be ten this fall. Kate's time of dealing with all the fun and excitement of parenting hormonal twins are almost here. There are many kids who enter that stage by ten these days.

It's All About Kate said...

I saw the One Year Later special of "Surviving Sextuplets and Twins" for the first time last night. It should have been named "Kate's Free Tummy Tuck" since that's what it was mostly about. I CANNOT believe that surgeon allowed TLC to film the gruesome operation procedure, or that Kate would WANT it to be filmed. Blech!

And are we really supposed to believe she did all that cooking by herself, with the assistance of a 5 year old? Yeah right!

And as for her saying she didn't want the kids eating fast-food for dinner every night since Jon can't cook - did she even know how to cook for TWO and FIVE year olds???

graceful and girly she's not said...

bluesclues said...
Saw the photo of Kate on the beach with the kids. I don't thinks shes as "rockin" as they describe her. She looks more stumpy and bulky, than lean and toned.
================================
Agreed. I saw that photo, too, and thought it was very unflattering. I think the better way to maybe describe it is, sure, for having eight kids, she could look worse. However, we know she's had a tummy tuck at the very least. I wore a bikini at age 35 because it was somewhat practical, as I lived at the beach, was a runner and also weighed about 115 pounds (I could pull it off...unhealthily tan, lean and toned) but a majority of women just look so much better with a little more coverage. Modesty becomes some of us. I just wonder about the kind of woman who knows that cameras are trained on her and flaunts the bikini anyway. It's so much more than just about the clothes. To me, it's just another example of how much Kate needs that spotlight on her. She will say otherwise but, be assured, she seeks and craves the attention. She's got to make sure that every frame they shoot is always about Kate before anything or anyone else. "Look at me, look at ME" is truly her slogan. The only thing good about this is that, when cameras are focused on her, they're less likely to be aimed at the kids.

fidosmommy said...

I haven't read all the comments, so maybe this has already been addressed.

Since Kate's newest book seems to be doing so poorly, and her cookbook did too, where does this leave Zondervan? What happens if sales don't cover the advance they paid the author? Do they just consider it a loss and move on, or does Kate have to pay any of it back? Is the advance conditional on sales, in other words.

I bet Zondervan will give a little more thought to publishing books from people who are known for
such fleeting things as popularity on a TV show.

I wonder if Zondervan knew that
Beth actually wrote Multiple
Bles8igs. If they knew, then they were basically taking a huge risk on an unproven author when they made a multi-book deal with Kate. That hardly makes good business sense to me. If they did not know that Beth wrote it, then they were duped. I bet even the bigwigs at Zondervan can see the difference between Multiple
Bles8ings and I Just Want You to Know.

So I decided to read a certain blog and after my eyes quit burning i realized that in small print it said at the beginning of them "From the TLC editors" does this mean she is going to write another book journal style? Sorry if this has already been addressed.

Vanessa said...

Well the two Sheeple posing with her on ROL seem "fat" to me?
I thought it was the GWOPers who were supposed to be fat?
Nice of Steve to hold her bags again, aww, he's such a gentleman!

Poor single mom of 8, and she gets a little shopping done AGAIN (isn't it everyday?) and gets a little tan in to boot! She just sooo deserves it, like OMG!! (that's my sheeple impersonation)

MoonandMango said...

"To me, it's just another example of how much Kate needs that spotlight on her."

-----

Would a person be comfortable in a skimpy bikini...always worrying if anything was popping out, or if it was riding up your butt, or if anything was showing? How much more PRACTICAL it would be to wear a flattering one-piece, especially when chasing after eight kids.
Oh, wait a minute...the nannies do that.

"The twins will be ten this fall. Kate's time of dealing with all the fun and excitement of parenting hormonal twins are almost here. There are many kids who enter that stage by ten these days."

@MoonandMango-The uniform for male bloggers is Members only jackets!!

So, saw kate in her bikini. She was bumpy. (saw them on D-listed) Could have been shadows?) I don't know, she does not look THAT good. I will say, her arms look toned, but really, that's about it! The rest of her body looks, well, bumpy. And who, may I ask, walks around in the skimpiest of bikinis when they wanted to be conservative on DWTS? Makes no sense to me. But it is kate we're talking about.
OH! I am posting in a long, black bohemian skirt right now, with a black & white tank top and black flip-flops. Not crocs! Sorry I'm not in uniform! I'll go change!

I am curious about the bodyguard. Is there any real info about him? Strange to need a bodyguard. There has to be more to this story. We hear all about Jons ladies, but Kate seems to be untouchable.

."The state of Pa could of done something ,they didn't,"
------------------

Like what? Ban reality show filming? Pull the plug on all filming and be faced with a discrimination lawsuit? Not likely to happen. Like it or not, production companies have the right to film here. PA did require TLC to get permits, perform background checks on the crew and others in production who will be around the children, and comply with the child labor laws. They got the permits...whether they are complying with other laws is a different story, but our representative is passionate about this and will follow through. Paul Petersen is coming for another hearing next month. We've a long way to go, but we are headed in the right direction.

PA G-ma said...

I was reading and enjoying the creative and funny comments and would like to add my comments, which may not be up to par with those already posted.

re: "flying on DWTS",
I can see K8 being "harnessed" up like Mary Martin or Sandy Dennis were in Peter Pan. She would not have to remember the dance steps, would not have to concentrate much and would basically have to pose at her own pace showing off the chicklet smile. Tony could be on the dance floor doing his own thing without the stress of trying to teach K8 anything.

Just another thought..The recent shooting of the child in Michigan, is such a tragedy. The worst part is the cameras were rolling for a "reality show". I do not know if this is anyhow connected to TLC or its affiliates but it most certainly brings a lot of attention to the dangers of reality tv.

Ohio Buckeye said...

@It'sw All About Kate: I temember that episode. Isn't it hilarious to ponder the reinvention(s) TLC has come up with since then?

In those early days, she professed to never wanting to leave her kids alone ever again because she so missed them.

She pretended to cook what, two weeks of meals to sustain the kids in her absence (this one really makes me LOL considering how little she is home these days).

Don't even get me started on her haughty bragging about 'making sacrifices/doing without so she could afford to feed her kids O
RGANIC as often as possible.

One constant, though, has remained throughout. Even in that early episode, K8G was all smiles whenever the ALL the attention was solely on HER - remember her description of her post op recovery as a 'painful honeymoon - we didn't fight once!' (well, sure, because Jon devoted every waking second to catering to her - JUST THE WAY SHE FEELS SHE DESERVES AT ALL TIMES. And, then again when she returned home and the 6 babies were all about 'Mommy!' and her return home. Yes, K8G LOVES it when everyone throws a parade in her honor. Sadly, it seems she actually believes she DESERVES this. Constantly and on an ongoing basis. Just for being K8G.

I'm guessing that 'cook for two weeks so they have good meals' was never true to begin with - just the script.

I'd bet the farm that these days, despite the hers, all hers, huge and unnecessariy renovated kitchen, K8G does not soil her manicured nails with anything as mundane as cooking for her 8 kids.

She's a sick one, that K8G.

NT said...

ROL has pics of Jon and his gf Ellen with the kids on Saturday. They spent the day at his pool at his apt. There's a pic of Mady talking with Ellen. The kids look like they actually like her!!! I also see Jon's ration of Juicey Juice on the table. At least this is a pic of true reality. A day of fun that TLC did not pay for and there's no one waiting on them hand and foot and no bodyguard!!! Life was good on Saturday!!!

It's All About Kate said...
I saw the One Year Later special of "Surviving Sextuplets and Twins" for the first time last night. It should have been named "Kate's Free Tummy Tuck" since that's what it was mostly about. I CANNOT believe that surgeon allowed TLC to film the gruesome operation procedure, or that Kate would WANT it to be filmed. Blech!

Another Gosselin 'vanity procedure' that was equally gruesome to watch was the Jon gets free hairplugs episode.

Cry Me a River said...

Frock doesn't look any better or any worse in her bikini than anyone else in the world who has had the benefit of tons of plastic surgery.

Just as a footnote I have been seeing where more and more Hollywood producers are shying away from the plastic surgery queens and looking for more natural looking women without all the botox and in particular the big boobs, especially for period pieces. That is not to say there is not still a place for them but not in the big epics anymore I think.

I think that sends a good message to the up and coming new generation of hollywood starlets.

Botox in particular I find disturbing. Some of those women who have had tons of it can hardly talk much less show excitement.

Yep, that's a Sheeple alright!

Thanks for the confirmation, Suzanne....

So sorry about the death of the child in Michigan while reality tv is filming. What a tragedy and what a life her family must have led.

And I cannot help but think how our girl would milk another few millions should any minor tragedy happen to her darling family. Radar had over 1200 "hits" on the article re. Jon and the girlfriend taking the group for a pool party at his new digs. ...go figure...

Payson48 said...

I think it's GREAT that the kids are getting some one-on-one attention-even if it's NOT FROM MOM. Mom is tooooo busy for that anyway so that's when Jon and Ellen can step in to talk and "listen" to the kids. They must be STARVING for some attention-from anyone. They seem to cling to anyone who comes around. I'm afraid to think of their teenage yrs....will they turn to each other for attention?

Those ARE sheeple! I recognize them from a book-signing. They asked her how to make sammonella chicken (if cooking it over hot stones in the dessert would work) and the name of her dentist because Kate still has all of her teeth! Oh, and I remember the Missus eyeing Kate's perky breasts.

________________________
You make a very good point here.
I used to look at the early episodes of this show and i realize that anytime too much attention was placed on jon or the kids , especially jon interacting with the kids, kate would shriek, and stop the activity claiming she was afraid of germs, she was suddenly exhausted, or was worried for health or safety of her kids.

Jon pumpkin carving in the garage is prematurely ended.
Ice cream gate- all eyes on the kids and then kates shrieks, etc
Jon is criticized for wanting to decorating a gingerbread house with twins
Crayola factory
Jon playing with the kids outside with playdoh - Kate refuses to watch as the whole thing is just one mess, she call jon childish etc
Toys r us- shes so excited about the free shopping spree she acts like a jerk.
Kate basking in oprahs attention ignores aaden's fusses with a "jon see about aaden", her eyes never leave oprah.
All eyes on Nana J riding the birthday horse- kate has to snide that she feels sorry for the horse.
The first 4th of July, where she insists the kids walk and is very disappointed when they have to wear sweaters and noone can see the matching outfits, never mind her shrieking to "ignore us" and "coming through"as the kids were all crying
First trip to nc- screeching over a few crabs
Trip where she she thought she was entitled to pick up the pine comes- ruined the hike up the mountain by screeching at jon the entire time, contributing to maddy's anxiety.

Watching this show became painful as her shrieks were awful and she managed to suck the fun out of all outings.

I think she was always an attention seeker
marrying an asian guy, wanting and then getting multiples, twice.
The births gave her a real reason for attention and i think at times she has taken advantage of kind people who were trying to help her out.

just my two cents.

cabbages said...

ROL photos- Maddy seems comfortable enough with the new girlfriend- Maddys hand is on her shoulder as she speaks to her.

We've seen these kids bond instantly to and latch themselves on to any attention giving grown up and maddy's mother once said on tv that she had not been into maddy's room in months.

Anne said...

Ugh. Just caught a promo for Kate Plus 8. Trip to Florida. Same old same old. Kate whining about how difficult it is. Saying the kids are having "meltdowns" because they missed their naps. (Am I the only one whose kids didn't nap at age 6?) I can't believe this show will still hold interest for some.

Hazel said...

Why is someone still shown very often carrying one of those kids around? I quit trying to lug mine around by age 2 or 2 1/2 except in case of emergency.

Type (little) a said...

Just saw the preview for K+8, and this bitch is still complaining that they missed naptime?

What 6 year old still naps? My daughter is one month younger than the tups and hasn't napped since she was 3 and a half!

PitifulParents said...

I still carry my nearly 6 yr old whenever he asks. This time is so short and it won't be physically possible much longer. Is K8 ever the one doing the carrying?

The naps for 6 yr olds is another load of BS to again try and paint a younger image for them. Besides - weren't their "naps" like 4 hours long??? As if.

Jane in California said...

Naps for 6 year olds? My son began kindergarten at age 5 and turned 6 near the end of the year. He had school until 12:00, lunch until 12:30, and then attended the after school program until 5:00. After we got home, I fixed him a quick dinner, had some play time and he was in bed by 7:30 or 8:00. He conked right out, but he did just fine without a nap.

I think what Kate means is she locks the kids in their rooms for four hours when they get home and calls it "naptime" because she's probably drinking and dozing in front of her mirror during that time.

Ohio Buckeye said...

Hard to believe K8G is so out of touch that she thinks 6 year olds need naps.

Also hard to believe that she is unable to differentiate between her kids' 'meltdowns' and their following in mommy's footsteps by exhibiting the exact behavior K8G has modeled to them since the day they were born.

K8G, you are reaping what you have sown. K8, meet Karma.

Carezee said...

Just an observation. The tups go to school 3 days a week. They may have rest time but they sure don't have nap time. Pre-k and kindergarten aren't the same as when we were kids. They focus more on academics than playing. I am sure it was just to bring attention to her so that people will see what she has to endure. The kids were probably told to whine for the camera.

My vote for the men's uniform goes to those 70's style, super short gym shorts. Preferably with a white stripe down both sides. I believe they were made of stiff cotton. These would go great with the Members Only jacket that was suggested by Hippie Chick. Unzipped just enough to show a small tuft of chest hair. Add knee socks and sandals along with your handbag to carry and poof! you've got yourself a He-wop.
As for Kate taking flight on DWTS, I hope they give Tony a giant fly swatter to beat her with.
Thank you so much for the laughs, everyone. I love the monkey munch cookie fundraising idea. Hope my fat a@@ doesn't eat all the monkey flufferdoodles before we can make any profit.

Cry Me a River said...

What? Naps? Her kids are cranky because they have to put up with her when they are filming. More likely they haven't had a break and she is not giving them enough fluids. You have to drink a lot of liquids in Florida to stay hydrated and we all know about Khate providing for her kids on set.

Lord knows what kind of shoulder snatching, yanking, popping, smashing is going on outside the camera range if they are acting up on filming. I am sure they are glad to see her leave when it is over. Whatever happened to the low blood sugar meltdowns as her excuse for them being cranky? I am sure that will be on the table as well - her favorite.

I really hope that TLC is looking after these kids and that she is not mistreating them because they are not up to the task of working, going to school, trying to please their sorry excuse for a mother and the TLC crew (none of which look like regulars to me), which nanny when and all the other trauma/drama in their little lives. I can't believe anybody in their right mind supports this woman in any way, whatsoever.

Still Disgusted in TX said...

Those 6 yr olds needs naps bc they are the only 6yr olds with jobs! That's probably the only time they aren't working--when they are sleeping! Sad to say, but maybe they've figured a way out=(

thunderbird said...

Naps?? Her highness sure works hard to stunt the kids' growth, both physical and emotional. But time marches on and soon, like it or not, they will grow up.

I can't wait until the first of the tups throws a croc at Kate and tells her they won't wear the ugly things anymore. She's been lucky so far that they've been so compliant but as they get older they will demand their individuality and Kate will need an army of nannies to try to keep them under control. Kate vs.the 8, I can't wait for Kate's final meltdown!

BTW, to get me to wear crocs somebody would have to start sending me some love offerings...ugh! And at 110 pounds I've never been known to waddle....don't get me started on gauchos & tube socks, they both belong in the fashion hall of shame. Can I stick around even if I'm out of uniform?

(Am I the only one whose kids didn't nap at age 6?) I can't believe this show will still hold interest for some.
-----------------------------
I don't have kids but I think naps at age 6 are definitely odd. When I was age 6, I was either in kindergarten half day or first grade for a full day; the "era" of naps were long past. When I was in preschool, the kids who attended all day had naps after lunch but they were of varying ages. I was a morning attendee only but there were still no naps in the afternoon after I got home. (I double-checked this just now with my mother!)

I would say that naps pretty much were over in our house by age 4 if not before. How can you expect a kid to sleep at night if he's slept half the day away? I always thought it was peculiar on J&K+8 that Kate was so big on naps, especially because it would seem the kids, at least in bad weather, only had the basement to run around in (the e-town house before the McMansion); not enough outlets for their youthful energy. Not comparing dogs to kids at all, but it does remind me how the veterinarian will say, when it comes to necessary exercise for my wild puppy, "a tired dog is a good dog."

I totally remember on one of the reality show episodes, when the tups were younger, Kate saying on camera that her best time of day was when her kids were napping (and I think on her schedule that the naps were quite long). She'd get up late after Jon had started off the day, the kids would go down early for naps, then he'd take over once he was home from work...and I began to think to myself, "she doesn't actually have it that bad." Exactly how much actual hands-on time did she really have with these children? This was reinforced in me once we learned she had substantial volunteer help all along, as confirmed by her brother on I believe one of the earliest ROL interviews.

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

kate will probably still be trying to get them to nap when they're teenagers, she really does not wish to deal with her children much & tries to find as many ways possible to avoid it. Like the afternoon long naps they had until daddy would get home when they were toddlers. katie can't cope & has likely bitten off far more than she can chew. Guess she didn't realize that getting all those freebies she dreamt of as a teenager would be so much work. Perhaps she thought all the children would be like little dolls that she could put on a shelf & walk away from when she was tired of dealing with them. That's what it seemed like when they were babies, put them in their cribs, close the door & walk away, just like playing with baby-dolls.

How could you think a remark like that would do anything other than paint you in a very bad light. What an awful, awful creature.

Gabby22 said...

Can't See Sheep, Kate calls them "Gosselinings".

Think that's the "other" reason Kate married Jon besides Jon's parents having money?

And why were Jon's parents not more part of their life. Maybe Jon's mom had Kate's number early on.

Also, I think Kate got the idea of "multiples" as a "lifestyle" from her time as a nurse. She saw how the freebies came.

I always wondered how Kate had sooooo much time to make her little calenders, notes, plans, blogs, etc. It was because she NEVER really cared hands-on with her kids when the cameras were off. The schedules were for all the "helpers".

And it also explains why she was always so frazzled when filming....it was the ONE TIME she had to actually work instead of ordering people around.

Like Mady called it....Kate was Queen Bee.

Why Hollywood wants to support this bitch is beyond me...

I went to ROL to see if Lindsay made it home and there was Kate posing with some sheep. She had on workout clothes and some ugly high heels! Last time I went to the gym I wore tennis shoes-what the heck?

__________________________________

JJ, didn't you hear?! It's the latest fashion craze, as started by the always fashionable and trendsetting Kate - work out clothes and heels. I'm sure you'll soon see all of Kate's celebrity friends sporting the style themselves. Sat here myself in my sports bra and high heels, I certainly intend to wear my outfit to run my errands later like going to Starbucks, get a tan, a mani and pedi, and of course, I need to get my mail at the local FedEx. I should check if i'm low on paper towels before I go and get a case of those. After all paper plates are so last year, why bother serving food on those when paper towels do the job just fine. Less work too, and besides, Iwouldn't want to get a paper cut from those plates.

KB said...

Amusing myself over at ROL, reading about how Kate is going to "set the record straight" yet again. How many times is this woman going to supposedly "set the record straight." I'm guessing until everyone is singing her praises, giving her anything and everything that she wants. Until she is our Queen, and by our I mean the collective world. She's going to continue down this path until she is the celebrity royalty that she believes herself to be.

Kate really doesn't get it, no one cares and the fact that she has to constantly explain things of course just reinforces often their accuracy with her convoluted and changing stories, but there is always an excuse with her. It is never her fault, but always others.

I know this is redundant, but i quickly went from amused to anouyed. I am generally tired of the woman like everyone else here, and I really don't want to hear her about her setting the record straight for the hundredth or so time.

Thank you for letting me vent/ramble

KB said...

My apologies about my rant, just noticed it was an old article. It pleases me though we don't need to hear her set the record straight once again. Such a sense of relief.

kimmie said...

i worked in a daycare and the kids (from 2-5) went down for a nap from 12:30 - 3:15) every day. if they were still asleep when the after-school kids got there (3:20) they stayed asleep til 3:30.

when kids were off school and came for the entire day even the school kids (up to age 12) had to nap or lay quietly on their mats during that time period.

depending on the child, most children 2-6 years old need 10-14 hours of sleep per day.

backtowork said...

I read that Kate's paycheck from DWTS was a whopping $500,000.
With Kate's earnings from DWTS , as well as, her take from the yet to debut Twist of Kate show, can some one please explain to me WHY it is necessary that the eight Gosselin children be put to work via 'reality tv'? For a mere nano second, I might consider giving Kate credit for her 'acheivements' if it werent for the her necessity to exploit her children in the process!

readerlady said...

Re 6 year olds and naps - I can remember coming home from school and taking a nap, but I've always needed a lot of sleep. My mother didn't require it, but I did it more or less voluntarily. If I didn't sleep I lay quietly with a book for about 45 minutes. So I don't find it all that unusual that the tups still take a nap. I would, however, find it unusual if they're still taking 4 hour long naps, as they did when they were toddlers.

Pony said...

Kids vary in how much sleep they need at various ages. One of my kids never slept more than 11 hours a day - as a newborn. That number decreased each year. His brother, oth, needed lots of sleep, and at 25 still does. The after school care program he went to in kindergarten had them "rest" for at least an hour after lunch. They had to wake him up every day when it was time to move on to activities. So the tups could actually still need naps.

Canadian Mom said...

The rare 6 year old may need an afternoon nap, but no way would all 6 tups need one, except to escape mother dearest. Again, they are treated like a herd, not as individuals. Now if were to humor Kate and say those kids really DID need naps, praytell when do they get them? On the bus? As soon as they get home from school so she doesn't have to see them? And what 6 year old would want it broadcasted that they still nap? Like a favorite blankie or thumbsucking...nothing wrong with it but it's a secret to be kept within a family, not announced to the world. Such a friggin bitch

Regarding 90% of Kate's audience hating her.... She's getting warm!!

And perhaps the kids are melting down because they don't want to film? Just saying....

Maybe this is why she is still relevant? People like us "hating" on her is making her a good "gimmick" to stir up people into watching this train wreck.

Well, I didn't watch this weeks episode of DWTS and certainly won't be watching any of her crap on TLC.

Hopefully her 15 mins will finally be up when her show tanks. (Twisted Kate).

Pony said...

I have never really understood Kate's use of "meltdown" to describe a child's temper tantrum or a child's crying about being miserable.

The American Heritage Dictionary defines "meltdown" - after the obvious nuclear use as: "3.Informal An emotional breakdown." I have yet to see that on the show. I have seen whiny kids, angry kids, and kids having tantrums.

You know what's really sad? It’s really sad that history is repeating itself. Once again, Kate and Jon are showing that they are not engaged in any long-term planning for the welfare of the eight kids that they manipulated modern science into bringing into this world. Kate is blindly and relentlessly forging a career in showbiz, despite the fact that she has no discernible talent to offer. And Jon has seemingly transferred his balls from Kate’s purse to TLC’s back pocket. These two grifters are so selfish and short-sighted as to believe that their extended 15-minutes-of-fame will REALLY last long enough to support their eight kids to adulthood. It’s JUST like when the tups were born: no secure financial plan; no job security; no long-term plan for the kids’ well-being; and, using the kids to bring in the $$$. Kate seems to have been granted a stay of execution by the governor of TV-land, and may get a season or so more of air-time, but let’s fact it … eventually her exhausted uterus will finally be uninteresting to even the most devoted of the Sheeple. Then what?

Yes, they’ve been recently forced to save 15% of earnings for the kids – but this order is WAY overdue, and quite frankly too late. The gravy train has derailed, and the time when the kids should have LEGALLY pocketed a boat-load of cash has passed [under CA laws, the kids would have EACH had at least 15% of their earnings socked away. It’s up to the parents to put away more under the Coogan law]. So now they’ll earn a piddling from Kate’s newest child-exploitation shows – but those kids will never see the real money they have actually earned (had TLC been honest about their “documentary” and PA been proactive where child labor laws for reality shows were concerned). The Gosselin kids should be able to retire before reaching High School – were it not for the unscrupulous greed of their parents and TLC.

As for “supporting Kate” in her career choices … I’ll support her once she chooses a career she’s actually qualified to perform, and not one that just feeds her endless need for the spotlight and her unbelievable (and, let’s face it, laughable) egocentricity. Oh, and a career that does not ride on the backs of her eight kids, much less has ANYTHING to do with her being “a mom.” Jesus Christ, I’m a mom of multiples – where’s my reality show???? Enough already. Stand on your own two clommpety, ungraceful feet, on your own merits, Kate. Maybe then someone will take you seriously. It won’t be us, but it might be someone….

That's very presumptous of her, I for one am not her audience, never will be, couldn't pay me enough to listen to her squawk. I just find this annoying bitch shoved into my face when I am trying to enjoy my favorite shows that she has totally ruined.
You should change this statement to 90.1% of the PUBLIC hates you because most of us know that you talk through both sides of your mouth.

@Posh,

Great post--and nice to see you on here again--seems like it has been awhile.

As for your own reality show, mom of multiples . . . unfortunately, you are way too real for "reality' tv!

If you really want that show,
a) put kids in matchy-matchy outfits
b) flap hands in "cute" way when kids bug you, husband bugs you, or bugs bug you.
c) also screech at things like tiny crabs on beach (who'd a thunk you'd see those there)
d) undermine all family members in asides to no one (later, this will be to a camera, once you get good at it)
e)practice throwing back head and clasping hands at faintest prompting to display mirth. Most normal people find this hen-like cackle very difficult to pull off, but we know you can do it if you work at it. Go Posh, go!

So glad to hear Jibber Jabbers that you tuned OUT. Me too. Now if all those who say they won't watch her new show really don't, then maybe TLC will get the idea that we're tired of her.

PA Grammy said...

Was it just me or did Khate seem non-strategically seated at DWTS last night? She was in the back row - not in front where she could "spontaneously" jump up and hug the 'real' dancers and was not on the aisle. Maybe someone at DWTS got smart and put her where she belongs - in the back with the bad kids.

I also think she is being generous when she stated that about 90% of the viewers hate her - I thought the number was higher! Looks like we'll be seeing more "poor me" tonight.....

I know this is redundant, but i quickly went from amused to anouyed. I am generally tired of the woman like everyone else here, and I really don't want to hear her about her setting the record straight for the hundredth or so time.
------------------

I am certainly there, annoyed with you. More of kate staring into a camera lens, lying, because that is all it is. She needs to sit down, shut up, take responsibility for what she is responsible for & leave the rest of the world alone. She's cramming herself down everyone's throat & well, none of us are going to swallow it. More lies & nonsense to make her feel important.

Only kate would think it was important to tell the world why she did this or why she did that, clearly she feels she is that important & frankly bitch, I don't give a damn.

Geez, you go away for a few days and a dress code breaks out. Being the competitive person I am, I'm all for the gwop scout sash, but I only have gardening clogs. Will they do?

Vanessa said...

Ok, if she made $500,000 for her stint on DWTS, is she going to give Jon any support payments from that sum? Betcha he signed away that meal ticket with the new settlement. How much of a cut did her handlers/managers get? How long will this last, how long 'til she's bankrupt?

Vanessa said...

Why is it when you google "kate gosselin" the only crap that comes up is the superficial hollywood propaganda? Why isn't the recent Child Labor hearings making it in the search? Is it because it's not "news" or someone is making sure it's not going out to the main press? I don't get it, how can there not be an uproar? "Busiest Mom in Showbiz", "Most Hated 'Reality' Mom", "Love Her or Hate Her" "Bikini Bod" "New Hair"...Why not "Stole from Her Children?" "Didn't Advocate for Her Kids" "Didn't Want Kids Paid for Working?" "Left children in compromising situations...as DOCUMENTED on her Reality Show" "Will not divulge EXACTTLY how many hours the kids are in front of the camera" "will not allow them therapy"

Laurie said...

Kate is the only "dancer" who feels it is important to let the world know how much she made. The other's haven't said a word about their DWTS salaries - even when the first hints came out that kate was making more than anyone. Pam never said anything whent he first reports came out that kate wanted to make more than her. Kate's people try to make her relevant by leaking her salary "Look at me! See how much I'm making! I'm making more than anyone! LOOK AT ME!!!!!" - We'll never know if the figure is accurate but it just goes to show that they (TLC, kate, her PR) have no class.

You can't believe everything you read, and the 500,000 sounds unlikely, IMO.

PATH said...

This morning I was flipping around the channels and TLC was running a commercial for arrrrgggghhhh!!! Kate plus 8---Kate's voice was complaining about something we have all heard before--WaWaWaWa I have to go on vacation it's so hard without help--(meanwhile there are production assts, kid wranglers aka nannies, etc. Blah blah blah--How about it TLC, show us something new--take away all Kate's help for real and let her really do things on own-start with carrying her own purse!!

I wish Jon would drink lite beer said... said...

that was great that they put kate in the back and not on the aisle. so she couldn't reach for the real stars when they would run by on the way to the celebaquarium!
don't you know she had to have a fit in a room with steve trying to calm her down.
i think they did it so they could have a kate free night for once, and maybe they will put her back there again tonight, unless kate dialed 911 to TLC and got that little problem "fixed".
they interviewed tony and he was talking about max and erin and he looked a little tired but you could tell his face didn't have the stress it used to have when he was trying to teach kate to learn they way she learns dancing or log rolling. lol
for 8 kids 9 and under having to work and being pulled out of school to be filmed is a crying shame. kate and jon and TLC need to be held accountable for this tragedy and believe me one day very soon they will be.

getoveryourself said...

Kate doesnt care that 90% of the viewing audience disliked her, nor do the network bigwigs at ABC. Kate was BRAGGING. 90% of the viewing audience may have disliked Kate Gosselin but that same viewing audience continued to tune in each week and watch. Kate Gosselin ratings gold. However, time will tell as to whether or not Kate's disliking audience will tune in and support the ratings for Kate + 8 and Twist of Kate.

Betty Boop said...

Remembering the tabloid claims and even industry observer claims of what Jon and Kate were making for J&K plus 8 that were later revealed to be inflated, I'm not believing yet another more than likely grossly inflated tabloid salary claim for DWTS.

noh84k8 said...

Re: re: Kate saying 90% of her audience did not like her. Is that what she really said? 90% of MY audience? Surely she meant the DWTS audience. She can’t really be that narcissistic. And announcing that she made half a million dollars for her ‘dancing’ when she spent how many weeks saying that she’s “just a single mom working hard to put food on the table for my kids” is surely going to lose her some sheeple. Are people really that stupid? I know they are, it’s kind of a redundant statement. I’ve heard her say a lot of stupid things, but these last two, if she did say ‘my’ audience…I’m gobsmacked. I think she’s completely lost control now. There’s no way even the TLC pr machine can fix this.

Vanessa said...

Maybe taking a vacation as a single mom wouldn't be so damn hard without a friggen entourage!
WhyTF is this considered "reality"?
Those kids have been to Disney twice before the age of 6! Here's a solution, if it's so effing hard, DON'T GO! And really, do you not all think those kids are facing even MORE confusion since it's been what? a year since the "cease and dissist"? Since they've had a "crew" basically co-habitating with them?
There was a behind the scenes episode of "Holmes on Homes" and they said that Mike has 3-4 people just follwing HIM around, not to mention the "crew" the other guys have following them. Just remember the poor editing during the last few episodes where the kids were standing, waiting, and then run over to kate and ask "what are you doing?" (2nd camp out episode, remember CAN'T DO KATE) On Holmes on Homes, they said they have MANY MANY takes and the staff have to redo A LOT of shots! (sorry, my thoughts are just rambling with no sequence)

BMWoP said...

Classic Jimmey Kimmel last night......

They did a skit with Tony Dovolani "dancing" with Geirmo ( how do you spell his name? ), and Geirmo was dressed as a woman in a blond wig....cough cough....and he just stood there while Tony danced around "her" and grinded up against "her". Then Tony tried to lift Geirmo and he was so stiff and heavy, he wouldn't budge. Tony struggled trying to move his partner around.

Clearly they...including Tony...were making fun of having a partner like Kate.

Regarding the naps, how does Kate know the kids need a nap. She's never there to parent them. That's what the nannies are for. Kate just plays a parent on TV.

Amanda replied: Thats very easy! The kids need a nap when Kate gets tired of them!!!!

winsomeone said...

Kate just announced on DWTS that "90% of my audience does not like me."

How can she claim any audience as "hers", when she's only been on shows with others for some time, like the View, E, and DWTS? Those audiences belong to multiple people, not just Kate.

I wish Jon would start dating an Asian woman..I think that would really get to Kate. She tries to make her eyes look slanted, and I think part of her fetish with her skin color and tans, is that she's trying to blend in more with her kids' coloring.

http://abc.go.com/watch/jimmy-kimmel-live/93521/262157/jimmy-kimmel-live-524?cid=fullepisodeaccess

Link to Jimmy Kimmel last night. The part where they make fun of Kate is around the 5:50 mark, but the stuff before that is very funny, too.

Jimmy said Kate just stood there like a stripper pole while her professional partner just danced around her..then they go on to mimick one of their dances.

PA G-ma said...

K8 can say all she wants about 90% of the audience not liking her BUT she is blind to the fact that SHE DIDN'T TRY very hard to dance. It was evident that she did not rehearse even a tiny fraction of what the others put into their dances. What she performed(?) was not dancing...more like clomping, whaa, whaa, whaa.

Tami said...

My 5 year old is napping right now. Sometimes she doesn't but then we all pay for it at night. I think the naps are ok if they need it. Having 8 kids though, not all are going to require the same thing and she wants to treat them all like cookie cutter copies of each other. Plus she just does not want to deal with them.

Michelle Renee said...

I can't believe she is coming back WITH the kids! What is the new show suppose to be called now, "Kate plus 8"! This means the kids are involved!! What happen Jon? Run out of money...so you decided to put the kids back to work???!!! Get off your lazy butt and work and make a living FOR your kids!!!
Kate, you need to take a real hard look at yourself and get some help...from God. These kids, mark my words, are going to start resenting YOU (Kate especially) very soon...they will be teenagers sooner rather than later and the resentment will begin. Then what Jon and Kate? As far as these kids wanting to have a relationship with you two when they become adults...time will tell.
TLC, I'm done with you completely! I'm Never watching this network ever again. I will never watch "Kate plus 8" because these kids will be getting exploited AGAIN!

Have you NO shame putting your kids to work again and making THEM earn the money for you Kate? And what about you Jon for allowing your kids to be on T.V. again? Because surely this would NOT be happening unless you put in the okay! What are getting from this Jon? Oh, a paycheck of some kind, I'm sure.

What are you going to do now Aunt Jodi? Has she spoken out about this yet?

Kit said...

take away all Kate's help for real and let her really do things on own-start with carrying her own purse!!

Hahahaha - maybe this should be the first episode of "Twisted Kate." I might even watch that one, if only for the spectacular FAIL that is bound to occur! We could place bets on how many minutes into the show she would start sobbing...

here is an article about kate's flying dance tonight on DWTS:

here is the link:

http://www.eonline.com/uberblog/detail.jsp?contentId=182770

at the end of the article they ask Pam anderson something about kate and she said she texted me a couple of times saying what are or how are you doing and are you out of your mind yet, but she didn't say if she texted her back. haha

jibberjabbers you are so good with your photoshopping coupld you make a flying kate? haha

i wonder if she wil wear those hideous bat wingged sleeves like she did before. you know the costumes dpt. have her number!

Go Erin and Max! for the win!

GoPoshGo said...

@dustilies: lol. Unfortunately, if I dress my boys in matchy-matchy outfits even *I* can’t tell them apart! As for the hen-like cackle: I’ve been practicing, but it seems to set the neighborhood dogs into a howling frenzy, and their owners have requested that I cease and desist. ;)

I haven’t commented much lately, but I have been following everyone’s entertaining and insightful posts. Like many of the bloggers here, though, I’m finding that the Kate Gosselin “brand” is becoming a bit tiresome.

I’m still trying to connect the dots on how one goes from being a PA housewife to an author, talk-show co-host, “special correspondent,” public speaker at conferences, celebrity dancer, etc. – all in the span of a few short years, and all without any training or apparent skills. It would be one thing if Kate actually worked at being good at one of the many hats she’s been wearing lately, but it’s pretty clear she puts in the minimum effort and expects the maximum reward. She’s being handed opportunities for which she has not earned the privilege of participating in, and for which she lacks the skills and talent it takes to perform any of those jobs well. Most egregious of all to me is the way she thumbs her nose at these opportunities by not putting in the work ethic required to produce something other than her usual “sub-par” performance. She doesn’t seem to care how well she does at anything, just as long as each opportunity puts one more brick in her path to becoming a SUPER-STAHHH. [insert vomit burp here]

I don’t know if Kate’s star really is on the rise, or if she’s just managing to tread water in a fleeting flood of opportunities that have recently come her way. Either way, her PR team is relentless in having her “everywhere,” and I’m getting tired of her manufactured celebrity. She gave birth to a healthy gaggle of sextuplets – great, that’s amazing, newsworthy, and interesting. But that was six years ago. The only newsworthy events that she seems to produce lately are shopping trips to Target, nail and tanning appointments, pick-ups at the bus-stop, and manufactured drama about Jon’s sexual exploits. Who cares?? Anything “real” that she’s done recently (books, interviewing, dancing, mothering) have all bombed – because all of them require work and talent. It’s no big surprise that Kate’s new shows are “reality” TV programs. It’s the only genre perfectly suited for her: No talent required, and all about Kate.

HBailey said...

My husband's mother was/is a narcissist and when he and his brothers were kids they played outside ALL DAY LONG. The reason they did was two fold: #1 to get away from her, and #2 because she couldn't be bothered by them anyway. She didn't want them in her hair all day and once they went outside, that was IT...they were NOT allowed back in the house. I think they came back once to eat lunch, but they could not run in and out of the house all day...she would have beat them (I'm not exaggerating). That's what kids do...especially in the summer. They run in and out.

He commented recently that he was glad my sister let her kids come and go from the backyard to the house and doesn't yell and scream at them for doing so. He said "she lets them be kids"...exactly!

The 'missed naps' thing is her complaining because she didn't get a break from them...not that they needed naps.

She's a narcissist and they care only about themselves. Period. People are objects to them whose purpose is to get them what they want. Her children are no exception. In the case of Kate, her kids are objects she can control (right now) to get her what she wants (fame, money, attention). Once this is no longer the case, the relationship with some or all of her kids will cease to exist.

This is very sad and very hard for people to believe if they have not had any dealings with someone who is a narcissist.

Kate is all about Kate. Period. She will end up a very lonely, sad woman. Mark it down.

I absolutely agree! Perhaps if there wasnt so much effort and energy being put forth on 'making a SHOW' as opposed to ENJOYING the moment or experience there wouldnt be such a conflict of 'reality'. Instead of showcasing KATE and the Gosselin children in various stages of 'melt down' how about a preface of insight as to how KATE THE SINGLE MOM imposes a system of checks and balances which include instructing the children on what is expected of them, indivudally and collectively, with respect to their behavior, communication, listening to 'parental' instruction, consequences, etc.

K8'sNewShow:Whine&Cheese said...

HBailey, you have painted the perfect portrait of a narcissist. Of K8G.

Those fortunate enough not to have crossed paths with this personality have a hard time believing such descriptions.

But your description is absolutely accurate. I know first hand, and have the emotional wounds to prove it.

Narcissists never EVER leave the shallow end of the emotional swimming pool. Therefore, any pain experienced by K8G is likely to be far less than that of her kids and any others who have to deal with her.

Some, likely K8G herself, may not see/believe this, but what you have described IS accurate.

UMMMM, DWTS just started. Did Kate really just have a hard time walking with a feather? I may need to stay awake.....

kim said...

I have to admit...sometimes I actually feel guilty criticizing Kate so much but damn, she makes it so easy! She had absolutely no clue what she was doing in the opening sequence of Dancing with the Stars. She was barely moving and didn't know what to do with the feather prop she was supposed to be waving around. Again, she proved she has no business being on this show. So if she's going to continue to put herself out there and make a complete fool of herself, she's going to continue to receive criticism from me and anyone else who sees this phony for who she really is.

she is evil said...

Those pitied kids are melting down on camera again? Hmmm, what's a bad mother to do? Blame it on lack of sleep, of course. Hey, Katan, how about doing the right thing? How about demanding the filming schedule is one that those kids can actually handle? How about halting filming if they're not up to it? Or better yet... How about halting filming, period? Let them be kids, let them have a real vacation. And this means paying for it yourself, cheapo, so you can do what your kids want to do, not what tlc dictates. Maybe those kids are trying to tell you they aren't enjoying being filmed. By all accounts, filming is tedious, boring, and intrusive enough without doing it against your will. Add to that a stage mother (that's you) obsessing about how clean their clothes are or that they're doing a good enough job pretending to have fun. Don't you realize those kids don't really have a choice regarding filming with you insisting that they do it or starve? Ever wonder why 90% of the people hate you? Child abuse is not endearing, you stupid, braying cow

Pat said...

I am now blogging under a different name since I found out there is someone else on pro-katy site with my name....so here goes:

WHY WHY WHY WHY....if TLC and ABC are pushing Twisted Kate soooooo baaaadly, AREN'T THEY PLAYING ALL THE OLD JON&KATE SEASONS NON-STOP.

Why are they not promoting the show that started it all.....even on On Demand????

Because then all her new Hollywood friends would all get to see what a first class bitch she is. Including the congress person trying to write new children protection laws.

TLC is HIDING these reruns.

All the nude shots of children. All the shots of children with no parent present. All the screaming from Twisted Kate.

I dare you TLC...started running the reruns, so EVERYONE can see what Jon and the kids have had to put up with.

I DARE YOU.

But they are on Netflix!

chellt said...

I realllllllyyyy tried to give Kate the benefit of a second chance on DWTS tonight.
I had convinced myself that no one that bad would voluntarily go on national TV.
Don't get me wrong. I still think she is a wretchedly, wretched whench. But I always tend to root for the underdog.
After the opening number, I seriously have to question her lack of rational thinking at this point. Seriously. I am good at a lot of things, but a beauty queen I am not. So would I enter myself in the Miss America pagent and run out on stage in a two piece at 300 lbs? Hell no. Yet here she is. Not an ounce of rhythm in her body, yet her she is. Seriously. What is she thinking????

fidosmommy said...

Oh my goodness. I thought DWTS was over, but it wasn't! Kate was standing there with Tony in that red bordello costume from her Paparazzi dance! What is she thinking? Did she really repeat that disaster? I switched the channel because I didn't want to watch......

Can't See Sheep said...

@HBailey,I believe you about the beating. My hubs mom was the same way. He is able to identify with the Gosselins boys some as his sisters were the golden children & he was the icky boy. Yes it bothers him to see the G boys treated like that, he remembers what it felt like, he would not stay in the room when a commercial came on that had kate on it, back when we were still watching TLC.

StopNow said...
Kate should fly to the moon and never return.
---------------------

I keep saying it'd be nice if they were populating the moon & we could vote for people to go there. Sort of like Survivor except we get to vote people off of Earth. I believe we could out vote the sheeple & get kate there. Steve can go with her to hold her purse. Maybe Steve is the new "lap dog" status symbol for celeb wannabes. Pretty soon Paris Hilton will have a man following her around with her purse & then all the other celeb wannabes will be doing the same thing.

Did the twins even go to Florida? All the pics I've seen so far of the Florida trip don't have the twins anywhere in sight.

Jeannie said...

My poor eyes are burning. Just saw Khate's awful performace on DTWS. It was funny to see and hear her make a total and absolute fool out of herself however. But her, that close to the camera on my 51 inch screen TV was terrifying. They kept showing her up there and yet didn't show how she got up there, must've been by her broom. It was weird, dumb and funny because she's an a_ _. My own 13 year old daughter said she made a complete and utter fool of her self. I couldn't agree more. Pam was great, a true lady.

Mystine said...

What will someone tell me was that all about?? She wasnt doing half bad til she got on the lift...what a disaster...she needs to leave the "special surprises" to the real dancers. I know she means well, but by now she should know what she can and cant pull off. A for effort though...F for failure to think it through!!

Sorry this is a little off topic, but thought it might interest some of you. It's about the benefits of children being allowed to play in dirt that have been found in some scientific studies. kate needs to sit & have a good read.

True Khater said...

The cheesy-highschoolish stupid grin she had on her face as she was hoisted 50 feet in the air made me throw up in my mouth. I would have ran away from home if my mother ever did that on national TV. She is ultra-immature and still walked her way through the (dare I say) dance tonight. I didn't watch the first part, was watching a better, more interesting reality show finale. But heard she flubbed up that number also. Don't know who would want to ever be her PR peeps but they have to die a little inside every time she appears on screen. I truly hate that woman.

JoyinVirginia said...

Ohio Buckeye - you called it! the paparazzi dance was hilarious! And when Tony whipped off her skirt - even more funny! My DH was watching with me, he doesn't really know who is who, but even he said "That woman looks awful!" when K8 came on. I loved how the cherry picker took her up, THEN the camera showed a real star and dancer, Pam, coming DOWN from the ceiling in a sparkly hoop thingy. I am convinced the DWTS producers and stage managers do not like her. Either that, or they know people were waiting anxiously for their Train Wreck of Major Suckage Proportions and did not want to disappoint us!

Kate Is Full Of BS said...

Kate's excuse of the kids needing a nap is most likely a cover-up for them NOT WANTING TO FILM, but she's still forcing them to.

It's more visual evidence for the kids to show their future therapists.

thunderbird said...

That really takes nerve you know, to complain about a "job" that consists of all-expense paid vacationing that you are also being paid big bucks for!! In this day & age many people don't have the luxury of enjoying any kind of vacation, they simply don't have the funds. Why anyone admires this loser is beyond me, the way she flaunts her wealth and opportunities is sickening.

Kate, you are a stupid, stupid bitch.

That really takes nerve you know, to complain about a "job" that consists of all-expense paid vacationing that you are also being paid big bucks for!! In this day & age many people don't have the luxury of enjoying any kind of vacation, they simply don't have the funds. Why anyone admires this loser is beyond me, the way she flaunts her wealth and opportunities is sickening.

*********
Or we go on one and have to spend a great deal of our own money and also not be able to do all the first class things we'd like to do. Can we afford to eat 3 meals a day at Disney? No! Do we get to actually fly there with our kids instead of drive for 20+ hours? No! We're going to Disney in 2 days but not on a free, first class, all expenses paid trip! She will never have to know what it's really like to raise kids without having everything handed to her. So when A-holes say, 'She has 8, count 'em 8 kids and has to do it all on her own...' it just makes me sick!

Tami said...

What will someone tell me was that all about?? She wasnt doing half bad til she got on the lift...what a disaster...she needs to leave the "special surprises" to the real dancers. I know she means well, but by now she should know what she can and cant pull off. A for effort though...F for failure to think it through!!

********
OK, I have to disagree that she wasn't doing half bad. She was doing all bad. Is that what you meant? lol. Furthermore, I do not think she means well, nor do I give her an A for anything. I'll give her an F for effort--for coming back after all this time since the show started and still walking her way through it--AND an overall F for everything else. Too bad we can't just vote her off tv so that she is never allowed on any network ever.

Tami,

The only thing Kate does on her own is go to the bathroom.

Did I miss something? Khate got on a lift and went 50 feet up? Is this the same person who got the willies about doing the same thing to see the freebie solar panels, oops, I mean "roof jewelry" on her house?

I take it the paycheck was bigger for DWTS.

pa mom too said...

I would love to know why Kate looks so much heavier on that show than anywhere else . It can't be the cameras because she's always on tv somewhere and she never looks that big. And if it was the cameras adding that much weight onto her, how horribly skinny are the actual skinny girls who are on the show ? LOL !

Mona said...

Kate looked like a cartoon airplane last night. Only they are usually dressed better.

High Chair Graduate said...

At age 6, the tups are still in high chairs, as seen on DWTS promo clip for Kplus8

Do they do stuff like this just to get us going?

Mona said...

The new People Magazine has Kate and the 8 on the cover. The story is about the "tears, tantrums and chaos" regarding the divorce.

Can this get any sadder for the children? And will they be paid a percentage of the proceeds from the cover shot and the story?

shestillcantdance said...

You would think that considering this was the DWTS finale show, Kate would have approached her return performance with a bit more dignity and respect, if not for herself, at least for her fellow DTWS dancers who put forth A SERIOUS amount of their time and dedication over the course of the show. IMO, Kate's performance represented nothing more than an intermission 'clown act' to entertain the audience in between the REAL performancer/performances of the show.

Can't See Sheep said....
Did the twins even go to Florida? All the pics I've seen so far of the Florida trip don't have the twins anywhere in sight.

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
She did the same thing last May, remember? When they went to N. Carolina and the twins had to go back after 2 days to get back to school but the tups stayed for 10 days. Why not wait another 2 weeks and go when the entire family can attend without missing school obligations? Oh yeah - because it is NOT a vacation. It is the children's out-of-state-work assignment. The Annual Month Of May Beach Assignment.

And I have another question - WHY IS THAT? what is it about these 6 immature pampered children that makes so many people want to watch and line the pockets of their parents in order to see them. All children are darling but honestly, these 6 are nothing special whatsoever other than they live in the lap of luxury.

Why not pick a Sunday School class from MainStreet House of Worship or something like that and follow THEM around on trips? Why are people so eager to watch THESE children - despite the fact that their mother is so unpleasant to every human in her path? They are average looking children and below average in their physical and intellectual abilities because they have been held back. So just what is the attraction that brings in so much money to Kate?

snuggles said...

Can someone direct me to a link of this dance with katie flying.

Also wasn't katie afraid of hights- remember the redwoods forest and the lighthouse in nc.

huge salary and a wonderful opportunity for the kids and she wears an ugly look on her face the whole time, complaining about the kids or exhaustion.

funny part is we all know now that when on vacation someone else dresses the kids, feeds ,cleans up, pack supplies etc, arranges transportation, she gets vip or private access to everything.. all she has to do is show up and she still cant have a good time..what an ugly person.

sitting on the couch a few weeks after to recap an episode saying you had a good time and you are grateful etc does not erase the footage we saw.. actions speak louder than words....

crabbygirl said...

I heard that Kate danced to the "P" song again on DWTS. Personally I think Kate was trying to use mind control to remind the public how important she believes she is, lol.

yahoo just ripped her a new one. saying something about not even practicing her WALKING and her timing being off etc. This is funny!

Just My Few Canadian Cents said...

From Dose.ca: - she wanted the temperature of the dance floor lowered? Wow. Article is below.
---------

Kate Gosselin may have been eliminated from Dancing with the Stars back in April, but in returning for the season finale yesterday, the octomom reportedly reminded her fellow competitors why they were happy she left.


Producers were eager to bring Gosselin back for the finale because ratings for the show dropped after she was eliminated. But according to Popeater, the 35-year-old TLC star still wasn’t making any friends last night.


"We had all just about forgotten what a nightmare Kate was," one DWTS insider told Popeater. "She is the only celebrity in the entire ten seasons who has demanded a security guard be with her at all times, and nothing anyone does is good enough. Last night, she actually wanted the temperature of the ballroom changed before she hit the floor. Kate hates to sweat and this was just another opportunity for her to be difficult.”


Allegedly, Gosselin was also a giant horror show for the makeup and wardrobe people, who would flip coins to determine who had to deal with her.


But the biggest victim in all of this? Popeater claims it’s Gosselin’s former dancing partner, Tony Dovolani, who dreaded being reunited with the uppity mother. According to the insider, Dovolani was telling people that it would be easier to dance opposite Barbra Streisand than deal with Gosselin again.


Now, a Streisand/Gosselin showdown? That we’d watch.

Maggie said...

Barbra Streisand and her husband came into a shop that my friend worked in. My friend said they were both really nice. They posed for a picture with her. Later Barbra sent her a handwritten letter thanking her for helping them in the shop. She has it framed next to the picture of all of them.

I would take my chances with Barbra over Kate any day.

crabbygirl said...

No comparison between Kate Gosselin and Barbra Streisand. Barbra is a true artist who some people conceive as "difficult" because once she believes in a project she gives it her all. She also is willing to LISTEN to other people's opinion to improve things. She also ADORES her son and the only time she appeared on screen with him (to my knowledge) was when he was an ADULT in the "Prince of Tides". Tony would be LUCKY to have Barbra as a partner. I can bet that Barbra would never have acted like Kate did. Tony lost alot of credibilty with me when he supported Kate so strongly at times. Sorry!!

noh84k8 said...

to fidosmommy: You were asking about Zondervan. Did you see the pictures of Kate at the UPS store? I've never seen regular mail in boxes that heavy. I think Zondervan is shipping her all the books that didn't sell!

I think I know why Kate can't dance. She has spent her whole life ordering other people around - she always has to lead. And when you're dancing with a male, you have to follow. Kate has no idea how to do that, and it sure showed last night. What a bloody disgrace. Even right at the beginning with those feathers…OMG. I feel sorry for anyone who tuned in last night for the first time. I’d mortgage my house to find out what really happened when she ended up in the cherry picker. There was something definitely wrong there. I know that it’s wrong to want someone to fail, but last night wasn’t even a failure, it was just disgusting. ABC should be issuing an apology. The only possible good thing is that folks watching last night would realize what a moron she is and pass on the new shows.

To BeDoneNow - thanks for posting the yahoo link. I tried to watch on ABC, but get a message saying that I can’t because I don’t live in the US – I’m in Canada. Tried Youtube, and they had all been taken down due to copyright issues.

Amy2 said...

I've spent a few minutes googling other sites about Kate. I have come to the conclusion that Kate doesn't care with people think of her as long as she has the fame, the money, and the perks. People are now laughing, yes I said laughing, AT her. She is one big joke and she doesn't get it. Where is her sense of pride in doing a job well, whether its dancing or parenting, or whatever. I am 59 years old, mother of 2 grown girls, and I live my life by this motto "Every job is a self-portrait of the person who did it. Autograph your work with excellence." Kate would never be able to achieve excellence or even understand what excellence is about. As Kate continues to age I wonder if wisdom will ever be a part of who she is?

On tonight's episode of Twist of Kate, Kate helps a mother of 8 who is addicted to the spotlight, has "authored" a couple of books, likes to get mani-pedis, tans constantly and shops. She doesn't spend much time with her kids, and when she does, she is usually in a very sour mood, doesn't let them enjoy themselves and is just plain mean. The problem? The mom wants to stay relevant anyway she can. How can Kate help?
Kate: Well, 1st, you have to be in ROL's back pocket, so when you go out, you can call them and they can take pictures of you! (snaps gum)
Kate Jr.: Oh! Good idea! What else?
Kate: You also have to try to get as many sponsors as possible. Oh! And sh*t on anyone who comes into your life. It doesn't matter if it's your mom, your sister, or whoever helped you write that piece of crap book of yours.
Kate Jr: Right. What about my husband?
Kate: Dump him. He's useless. You already got what you needed from him. The divorce will keep you in the news too!
Kate Jr: Oooo! Good one!
Kate: Duh.
Kate Jr: Oh, my kids are crying...
Kate: So?
Next week on Twist of Kate, Kate helps a beautifully trained dancing superstar become well...a piece of crap dancer. Thanks for watching TLC, where we make dreams come true, and families fall apart.

Kit said...

The only thing Kate does on her own is go to the bathroom.

Are you sure? I read once that back in the day, kings often had attendants to "clean up" after them. Perhaps Kate has one of those in her bevy of household help. Maybe THAT'S what Steve does, which would explain why he has to be with her at all times! LOL...

i will... said...

thanks "be done now". i too could not view on abc.com

ok, that dance was not good at all.
I dont get it, don't they rehearse? It looked like it was the first time she was doing the dance.

Something was wrong with the whole flying part it didnt even seem like part of their act.
We see her walk off, next clip we see a badly zoomed up shot of her, her lips are moving, she has a scary smile on her face and there's music on and the background is not focused.

I would not have realized that she was up in the air or doing anything special if i had no heard of the cherry picker and flying before hand

Something was wrong, maybe with the entire concept, or the cameras and editing that night.

I'm pretty sure from the look on her face she knew she messed up the singing part.

She came off more as a buffoon than one of the competitors. She was sort of the comic relief in the whole production. Too bad, but i guess dignity went out the window a long time ago.

Also what is with the whole paprazzi and i will survive theme.....i didn't know kate was suffering so much.

didnt she know said...

kate and 8 kids on the cover of people

maddy and cara dont look like themselves at all

alexis and leah look pretty much the same.

I suspect they made hannah's face narrower. Hannah did inherit her mothers funny eye though.

The boys all look as if they were photographed while moving around.

it obvious that photos taken at different times were placed side by side. Aaden looks proportionatly small compared to Collin . And Joel looks extra large and pudgy.

Barbara Streisand does have a reputation for being a so-called B****, as she is demanding and a perfectionist, however, that reputation stems from working, not as an every day description of her. It has been commented in the past (not here) that if she were a man, she would not be described that way.

We all know here the very different words that are used to describe the same personality traits in men and women; how for men they are more favorable and for women unfavorable.

Streisand has always been known as a tough woman professionally, who demanded the best not only from others but herself as well. She worked hard to get where she got to and she did it through her own tenacity and work ethic. The distinction between Babs and Kate is that Kate works hard for nothing, is rude, nasty, and ungrateful, expects everything for nothing, and has received everything she has off the backs of others, particularly her kids.

fidosmommy said...

Re: the new People Magazine cover.

I don't know about Photoshop, but suddenly Cara and Mady are the same height. I notice Hannah is front and center. I also note that Aaden is smooshed between Hannah and Collin, looking like his shoulders are in their way.
Poor kid. At least Joel got to stand on his own two feet instead of having to make the picture perfctly balanced - three girls, three boys all in a row dressed like a matched tea set.

BeDoneNow said...

OK I finally got ABC.com to work. I did not really believe my darling fellow GWoPers, that it was that bad. But now that I have seen it all, I realize I was kind of right - my poor GWoPers have been innacurate in their descriptions of what went on, on that dance floor.

IT WAS WORSE! Worse than anything you guys have stated! Words have failed you, dear GWoPers, to accurately describe the hilarious disaster that occured! I think I have to get out a thesauras to find the words.

What a pompous buffoon she was out there. From the very first opening segment, when she was standing at the bottom of the staircase, posing for the camera ("Look at meeee!") not following the rhythm of the choreographed movement, just wiggling her right knee a little, her nose in the air grinning and staring at the camera.

That fan/feather thing? She seriously thought her job was to WALK out there, turn and pop a pose for the camera and hold it. and she had no idea what the choreography of the prop was nor did she care. THAT was likely her idea of having fun - the not-caring part.

The "Dance"??? what a joke. She acts like she is afraid she will break a bone if she moves at all. And that cherry picker thing - she SNEERED at the camera. That is why it looks so incredibly weird. That hairdo, those teeth, the sneer along with the intentional camera lense distortion. Who ever used that lense did so deliberatly to give her face a fun-house effect.

"I will survive"? So what? YOu are not the only woman to get divorced.WE invented survival, so stop riding our coattails and acting like you invented it. No one cares. Good grief. You humiliated yourself. Wait - that's not strong enough. Where's my thesaurus.....

Tony, you humiliated yourself too, kowtowing to her. You are a professional dancer and you baby stepped around out there with nothing any harder than you would have taught a class of 3 year olds for their first recital. Tony, you yourself looked like YOU needed lessons.

She deliberatly TRIED to disrespect DWTS last night. She thought it was fun.
