sad to report this but jon and kate news has reached our shores (united kingdom) it is in todays dailymail online.
the pics of kate in that coloured dress with one sleeve make her look fat.
the article would have us believe that the split was because jon had an affair with the nanny .makes the reader believe that the nanny was the gosselin childrens nanny.
please god i hope she isnt thinking of a visit to the uk.

She Looks Fat said...

I STILL don't watch ANY show Gosselin, but, alas, the neverending promos are being run on TLC/Discovery. Gag. ANyway, in the one where Khate "takes her kids" to Discovery Cove ("all alone, I am SURE!), she is shown on the promo sitting on the couch confessional, wearing a white top. My very first impression of seeing HerMajesty again is: she looks FAT. Sorry to any plump people out there..and yes I am one. But , just: fat. Fat face, fat everything I could see.
What is up with that? Didn't she just come off a stint on the dancing show round about the time this would've been filmed?

Hmmm Weird.

I like Kate's dress, it's really pretty and fits well. I'm not comfy with patterns, but she wears this one well. I like the asymmetrical shoulder and how her shoes are cute, but don't slash with the dress.

The Maches(sp) sextuplets show starts up again this month.

Don't Cry for Me, America said...

Don't be surprised if they do make a trip overseas. The Rolloff's did and Frock would certainly put her kids through that if TLC is up for it. They will try anything for ratings.

I didn't see the one-sleeved thing. I watched the video of her on Today and about gagged. So phony, rehearsed, and disgusting.

I hope she doesn't get the ratings she thinks she will exploiting her children just blatantly, in your face now. The gloves are off. They are holding nothing back.

Don't Cry for Me, America said...

Poor little A. is the going to have major problems. Remember when he expressed his love for his mom (at her prompting) by telling her that when he grew up he was going to be a bad guy and he wouldn't shoot her (that is how he expresses his love). Of course Frock thought it was cute. (Light house epi on yet another vacation)

vltaylor said...

In the video where Steve and Kate are sitting in the back of the limo together she is twirling her hair between her fingers the whole time she is talking to him. I thought I remembered reading somewhere that that is a sign that she likes him romantically. Looked it up again and, yep, that is what it means.

http://www.sbcglobal.net said...

TLC putting the full court press on. The report on US.com is saying that Jon's girlfriend hates his kids. What drivel. They will do anything to keep this trainwreck in the spotlight because tomorrow is the premier of Khate+8. So now it will be that Khate doesn't want the kids to be with Jon if his girlfriend is present.
This report is beyond ridiculous.

Update: I read the new Us Weekly article. The statements made by a source to US are very untrue! 1st: Ellen, the kids and I enjoy spending time together. 2nd It was my choice to introduce the kids to Ellen. Lastly we are not seeking any attention. I’m focusing on my kids and learning from my past mistakes so I can move forward in a positive light not only for me but my family. I am enjoying my simple life in PA. I love being near my kids, it’s the best move I ever made!

PatE said...

Has anyone posted the video of steve and kate?

huge jugs said...

Pics of Kate at UPS store parking lot today and the jugs are definitely bigger. She is wearing an inappropriately low cut tank type shirt with spaghetti straps. Those DDs cannot be attributed to a bra. The shirt is so loose fitting and low cut that if she bent over, you could probably see her boobs en toto. I do think she's had them pumped up a bit, maybe to emulate Pam? Difference is, Pam is teeny tiny and petite elsewhere; Kate is just large. The boobs are ridiculous looking, distracting, make her look heavy and must be embarrassing to the kids. WTF is wrong with this bitch? Why would she want these blobby melons? Does she think they make her look sexy? Cuz that is never ever gonna happen.

LOL!! I was at a family reunion and was sitting next to my great uncle and he asked me why I was twirling my hair. Trust me -- if he and I were the last persons left on this planet after a nuclear holocaust, I'd rather be interested in what was left of the Statue of Liberty!

couch potato said...

I spent 10 days without cable TV!

I went to tlcdiscovery.com to check out the Kate Plus Eight and OMG is it ever just as boring as ever. Kate is just as stupid as she ever was.

Yawn! I could only stand to see a few minutes of it. The kids are cute, but then Kate has to be there.

Boring!

I'd rather just sleep!

GoPoshGo said...

Re: the video of Kate and Steve in the back of the limo: Does anyone else find it odd that in the clip Steve says, "You want me to cancel the dancing, is that what you want?" Huh??? Since when does a bodyguard handle the professional commitments of the client he's hired to protect physically? Isn't a bodyguard's job to be quiet and look out for physical dangers/threats to his client? If Kate didn't want to dance, wouldn't it be Kate's AGENT'S job to notify DWTS???? Alleged affairs and adjoining hotel rooms ... who knows. But it seems pretty obvious from Steve's statement that he is MORE than just a silent bodyguard.

Steve Speaks! he says, do you want me to cancel the dancing?

also, she said 2010 come hell or high water- i think she meant i am going to get those kids back on film come hell or high water and make that money.

I can't wait for that expose book to come out. bet she goes to the today show and cries to softball pitcher meredith. i have no more respect for meredith as an journalist, bought and paid for by TLC.

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

Thanks for posting that link. I went there and saw the video for the first time. I also left my two cents in the comments there. I almost feel like I have a mission to inform folks about this woman any time I get a chance.

And yes, it looks like Steve has become her substitute "Jon" now. Someone to do this, pick up that, call them for me, etc. I know I've said it before but I can't help myself: When this woman no longer has someone to fetch & carry for her, nannies to parent her children, cooks to fix meals (you know, when she's not pretending to cook after the cameras stop rolling), gardeners to keep up the landscaping, drivers to take her to the airport, and stylists to show her how to dress...all paid for by TLC I'm sure...I honestly don't know how she will be able to cope with life on her own. I'm sure she probably even gets some of the crew members to run errands for her.

For me personally it's not about how she fixes her hair or how she dresses that annoys me...it's her attitude, plain and simple. It's how she treats anyone who can't help her progress in her career, you know, uses them then kicks them to the curb if they do something not to her liking. It's that she chooses to earn her millions off the backs of her children. It's how she never smiles at a camera unless there's money in it for her or TLC has told her to because it's good for the brand. It's how she's so self absorbed that she can talk about no one but herself...seriously, I've never heard her say something nice about what a friend has done for her, or acted grateful for all the things that have been given to her...and really these things are done for her just because she has 8 kids, not because she's a wonderfully kind & deserving person. She always talks about how hard she works, how bad she has it, it's always about me, me, me and it's downright depressing to listen to her whine during her pity party chats on the couch.

I have a feeling the premier of her first show may draw a lot of viewers (I hope not, but I think it may and if it does, it will NOT be because of K8, it will be despite her since people probably will want to just see how the kids have grown)...but after that, I hope people will finally make a decision to never watch again. I certainly don't intend to contribute to her ratings. Like others, I truly enjoyed the show early on when there was at least some small semblance of kindness & consideration now & then, but wow, how she has changed! Or more likely, how her true colors finally surfaced for us all to see. I have every confidence that the more the public sees of her, the more her popularity will keep going downhill even as she & TLC make efforts to extend her 15 minutes, and their millions of dollars.

Starz22 said...

Dont watch the damn show! Yes its that easy. I will not be watching any of this crap.If no one watches...then the show will go away.Dont watch cause you HAVE to..WHY do you HAVE to watch? You know nothing is different with kate.She's still the evil nasty woman banking on her HATERS to watch.

There are more of us so called haters than fans.I wont watch...I dont click on anything kate...I pray that there are NO recaps.I dont ever go to radar and I have never went to tlc's kates blog...I DONT care.

I dont care what this witch wears...or says..I'm not gonna comment on her hair or her clothes!

DONT watch and the kids will get the privacy they need.I dont need an update on the kids after 9 months or 6 months or even 3 months.
I never thought the tups were all so cute...sorry if you think thats mean.They are EVERDAY kids who just happened to born at the same time.../shrug...I tuned in to see how 2 parents dealt with 8 kids.

It was easy to see that kate expected more than anyone was willing to give her...Kate was rotten to her husband and the kids.

I dont care to watch and I really hope the people posting here wont watch either.Again...its that easy/simple...NO ratings = NO show!

Believe me when I say this show will be repeated over and over again...if you HAVE to watch...tune in for a repeat!

If you cant go without watching this stupid ass show on a repeat...then you have some issues...Sorry...but its true!

Thank you for posting this.

steve is a little too involved for a mere bodyguard. It should be her agent who handles cancellations & such, not steve. She & her bodyguard need to bug off & live whatever lives they're living out of the public eye. He has to speak, not content to be a silent member of child exploitation any longer. The only one who has betrayed kate is kate. She mislead herself into thinking she could be a mother, she is not & it's painfully obvious.

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

She won't, she won't cope. The kids will end up looking after themselves, that's what happens when you're being looked after by a person like this for any amount of time, you quickly learn to survive on your own & you hang on tightly to those who are willing to be there for you. Hopefully the kids will be older by that point. kate on her own does not likely function much, thus Jon coming home & taking over.

I went to 3 bookstores yesterday plus Target looking for a summer reading list book for my daughter. I saw no signs of "I just wanted you to ho" until I got to target, bottom shelf, it was marked down to 12.99 and still had a 50% off marked price sticker on it! It was the only book in the store with a 50%off sticker. Also noticed, zero magazine covers with IT'S face on it. And this is the day before the new show, even the PR team is retreating at this point!

pinkdiamond611 said...

Want Kart to disappear? Don't click the videos concerning her. If there is interest in what she does, she will NEVER go away. If ROL posts a video and there are no "hits" then the Kart and the Kon game will go away. Simple as that. Same goes for the TLC TV episodes.

Momof2inMD said...

Just visited on the Gosseline Fan page. You all know who I am talking about.

I am really wondering how much money this "Fan" is getting paid by TLC and/or People magazine? I mean, just look at how this site of hers is done up. Way to professional!!!

No wonder she is such a huge fan!!! Having her fingers in the money pit.

Momof2inMD said...

Oh and she does look like she has gained some weight in her stomach area? I was thinking that already when she was on DWTS, but thought maybe it was the dress she was wearing at that day. But now, after reviewing the new footage of her, looks like she is sporting a bit of a tummy. ;0)

MayDay said...

TLC or Food Network tonight? Kate Plus Eight or the Next Food Network Star? Easy peasy choice for me...I'll learn new things about cooking and not learn how to whine and exploit my kids.

k8 ain't no saint said...

I haven't seen any mention of this story in any of the recent discussions since it was published. I thought Kate was estranged from her parents and siblings. This seems to indicate otherwise.

Suzanne said...

You know, in my opinion the best outcome in a perfect world would be that Jon finds a wonderful woman to marry who loves the children and offers them nurturing, respect for their privacy, and some sense of family and normalcy. Then Jon and said wife get custody of the children allowing Kate (and Steve) to go off in search of fame and stardom. She could visit the children in between her flitting between Hollywood and NYC and she would probably be in a much better mood and hence a better mom to them in the longrun.
Oh well, we can dream (and wish and hope and pray) can't we??

Katie Irene said...

OMG - After that national embarassment on DWTS, how can they permit that woman to show her face on national television ever again?

Kate Looks Like a Man said...

Either Kate is aging or has too much plastic surgery!! ROFL!

She def looks like she has put on weight in the previews for the episode. Best thing for kids is for no one to watch!

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

TLC is scrambling trying to get people curious to watch tonight's premiere because Kate has lost fans, especially after DWTS.

Not a surprise they now introduce an interview with Steve which even I have to admit makes me want to watch - but I will NOT turn on my TV and let TLC WIN!!!

I personally believe that TLC is counting on the haterz - not the general public - to justify continuing watching a train wreck so they keep tuning in to anything with Kate on it. They want the haterz to be snarky on the blogs because it means $$$ for TLC.

But chatter on the Internet does NOT mean ratings if NO ONE TURNS ON THE TV to watch or record the Kate+8 show.

Seriously, if you must see the kids, watch the episode in a few days on you tube or a future rerun. I know that life will not end if you do not see it firsthand as a new episode.

NO TELEVISION VIEWERS = NO RATINGS

NO RATINGS = NO SPONSORS

NO SPONSORS = NO SHOW

IMHO the haterz outnumber the loverz big time these days, so if the show Kate+8 is a success my guess will be that it is the haterz who are keeping Kate on TV, as well as keeping the kids W-O-R-K-I-N-G.

If this is indeed the case, then most definitely the joke is on the haterz, also known as the child advocates. After all some haterz have said straight up that they will watch because they want to be snarky about Kate. TLC does not care if you love or hate Kate, as long as you turn on your TV so it is counted so they can provide the numbers to the sponsors and make $$$.

My POV is that these haterz will do so without taking into consideration that this keeps the 8 kids on TV too.

I don't see why if a poster has to snark, why not do so with the upcoming Twist of Kate show and not Kate+8?

Now as I noted in my run in with 2 real people at home depot and antique store last week, neither one of them even knew about the blogs. No, they can't stand Kate especially after her time on DWTS and they will not be watching either of her new shows.

I also expect the viewer numbers to be strong at the beginning but in the long run it will fizzle out. Too much main stream media has picked up on Kate and her inconsistencies, and I have faith that the general public is not stupid and have better things to do than to watch a mom who lies and throws the father of her children under a bus while taking free trips without having to work a real job.

Only when the haterz can resist the temptation to watch the train wreck during the first run episodes of Kate+8 - where their viewership is counted towards the ratings - will the Gosselin 8 get their privacy and childhood back.

JMO.

BMWoP said...

RE: The boobs being much bigger

She had a boob job sometime last year/ late spring. At that time she was on this kick to lose a lot of weight and was thinner than usual when she had the boobs done.

Now, she's put the weight back on and then some. It's very common for them to become ginormous after implants are put in and then you gain weight on top of that.

Still galls me, though, that she denies having implants. Just proves what a bold faced liar she is.

***********
I guess I'm one of the lucky ones - I'm not even tempted.

I've come to the conclusion that what these children have/are enduring is in fact abusive and warrants being called Child Abuse.

Haven't watched anything on the LICENTIOUS channel in over a year (and I liked WNTW and Home Made Simple) and no reality shows with kids on any channel.

I hereby pledge and promise my fellow GWoPers, and most of all myself, that I will not watch any
new show starring Kate Gosselin or her innocent children. I will not do one thing to extend her time in the inter/national spectrum, with the exception of reading and posting on blogs that are designed to bring Kate Gosselin's horrendously horrendous exploitive actions to light.

"Still galls me, though, that she denies having implants. Just proves what a bold faced liar she is."

Has she ever explained the sudden engorgement of "the girls?" It's her business if she wants bazooms the size of bowling balls, and more power to her, but why lie about it? Just admit it! Of course, when she starts to fall over from being too top-heavy, she'll have her trusty boobyguard to pick her up!

Steve's an idiot said...

Does Steve really believe the crap he's saying? That Kate has been betrayed by people close to her? Because she has betrayed everyone in her inner circle, including her kids. The people who have 'betrayed' her (Jon, Jodi, Beth) were actually sticking up for the kids, who were being mistreated and overworked by their own mother. They would never have spoken up for the kids if Kate had protected them in the first place. These betrayers were then eliminated from the kids' lives by Kate and TLC for having the nerve to try to protect them. Steve's a damn idiot and enables the abuse and mistreatment of those kids at the hands of their vile mother. How does this not make him sick? Well, as with everyone else that Kate knows, he will be dragged down by her

Jenny said...

I agree with everyone, why don't we all make a pact not to watch the show tonight. If anyone is bound and determined to watch, why not check the listings to see when a repeat is going to be on, probably later in the week, and watch then if you somehow can't resist.

To me it's encouraging to think we can make a real difference on behalf of those precious children by simply not turning our tv to TLC tonight. C'mon...I know we all can be activists on their behalf, and it's not like we have to run in a marathon or participate in a telethon...just don't turn our tv's to TLC this evening, what could be easier than that? It's a simple way to put our money where our mouth is on behalf of the kids. I know you can do it.

She was asked about implants in People Magazine and she scoffed at the notion and said, "Really, who has time for that"...like she was insulted. I agree it's no big deal if you get implants, it's a personal choice and I'd get one if I needed it. But when it's as obvious as the hair on your nose wart that you had a boob job and you still deny it, it tells a LOT about your chitty character. It proved she's a liar and not to be trusted with one darn thing she says. Her snide denial made it seem like the people who thought she had implants were just stupid.

The implants are as obvious as the hair extentions. I'll bet if People mag didn't do a story about the process of getting them, she would deny the hair is fake, too.

Cuz that's how she rolls.

mama san said...

Unless you are connected with Neilson or another of the rating companies there is NO way anyone can tell if you watch K8. It would be very scary if any/all shows could be tracked to your TV access. I was contacted years ago by Neilson. When it was outlined what I had to do, keep a log of all TVs and what stations were being watched. I asked if I would get paid. Of course not. The interviewer tried to convince me that it would be prestigious to be included. Ha-ha. I declined and have not heard from them since.

My guess is they will spin it so that it will seem Kate didn't have time to rehearse, but did the show anyway because she committed to doing ir and when she commits to something she sticks with it. She ( and TLC ) will make it look like she couldn't rehearse because of what Jon was doing and that's why she was so bad. But she chose to be a martyr and honor her commitment because "That's who I am".

But when they start this crap, just remember all the churches she canceled on because she could make more money elsewhere. Kate does EVERYTHING that will benefit her and her only. If others benefit through that....fine. But she is numero uno when it comes to money and exposure and pampering.

Well said.

Steve is a paid puppet/ employee of TLC.
I would not give much stock in what he says on the show.

Beth and Jodi were there from day before the money came rolling in, out of love, sacrificing their time.

Who does Steve think he is to have any say on family and true friends.

Monster Mommy said...

Sign me up on the "NO WATCH LIST!"

I'll do my part, in encouraging more to do the same, by doing this... There is something on TV tonight for everyone!

"PROGRAMS TO WATCH... BESIDES KATE + 8"

Like Cooking? - "The Next Food Network Star" premiere.

Like Sports? - NBA game Lakers vs. Celtics, or Hockey game on NBC.

Like Movies and Music? - MTV Movie Awards

Like Sitcoms or Chick Flicks? - "Drop Dead Diva" premieres on Lifetime.

Like New Releases? - "State of Play" is on HBO (I highly recommend this one).

All on at the same time as Kate! Please feel free to add alternative options to my listing.

NT said...

I will take the pledge not to watch Kate plus 8 tonite. I will watch the 2 hour premiere od Next Food network Star. On 9 till 11. Perfect. For those of you who want to watch Kate on a nite that won't reflect ratings,it will be on wed at 7pm and 8 pm.

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

Yes, Jenny, I agree. I am in on the pact. In fact, that pact has been made on this site many times before.

OVER a year ago, most stated that TLC was locked out of their cable boxes forever and they would not watch. I dont think it really lasted... TLC has been locked out of my cable box, along with Discovery Health, for well over 15 months now. I have not watched, cliked, accidently stumbled on the show, and I will not in the future.

I know many will tune in "just to see the kids" "this one time only",(which I dont get, I have pics and movies of my own kids who are cuter and smarter), but many will deny they ever watched.

But, for what it is worth, I am in. Still.

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

Exactly! If I could afford plastic surgery, I would get some things fixed, I have no problem with women who use surgery to fix a few things that would make them feel better.

However, Kate knows that eventually it will come out. So she actually DID NOT LIE ABOUT IT. She deliberatly gave a vague non-denial-denial, like a slick politician. What she said was "Oh, who has time to think about that." in response to the question "There are rumors you have had surgery...". She didnt DENY she had implants, she will say, just said she didnt have time to think about the rumors.

That was probably the safest answer for her, as she is obviouly having a hard time keeping all of her stories straight.

Kit said...

YAY! The first episode of The Next Food Network Star is on tonight!

Oh? What did you think I was going to watch? Nothing else on that's worth MY time or attention...

grannyoftwo said...

I agree with everyone who is NOT watchng...I will not nor have I been watching anything Kate for at least a year and a half now. It feels so freeing and that I am really doing my part to help those children...lets just see how many can do the same..for the children..that should be our motto...not Kates..

Jenny said...

Monster Mommy, NT, thanks for listing the alternative shows and for giving the schedule for the repeat shows for those who can't resist watching. And Mickey McKean, Fidosmommy, Kit and Grannyof2, and others I've forgotten who feel strongly about not watching, I say bravo, you go girls (and guys)! I join you all in taking a stand tonight! And everyone else, it's not too late, hop onboard! As many others have done, I've walked in protest marches, been active in petition drives and participated in walks for a cause, but this will be the first time I've been an activist by sitting in front of my tv with a bowl of popcorn and my feet up watching tv! Ha! But it'll be great...I'm still deciding what show I'll be watching, there really are some good choices. Ahhhh, I'm feeling the solidarity already. :)

And to Steve'sAnIdiot, I so agree with you. Steve gets one side of the story from K8 & TLC...plus he's getting a couple thousand a day for his bodyguard/tote & fetch job and now since he'll be an actual participant in the show, he'll be making even more money from them! Hhmmmm, pretty much a no brainer which way he'd go on his statements. Pretty sure he wouldn't want to upset THAT apple cart.

And Moon, yes, we all recall how Beth and so many others from church donated...yes, actually donated their time...no payment involved whatsoever...to come to the house and help out with the tups and with chores, not to mention Jodi as a trusted family member who freely gave her time to babysit the kids to give K8 a break. All are banished from K8's life now, she has new celebrity pals. But unless there's a major change in K8's attitude and demeanor, I have no doubt that these also will disappear eventually.

I believe none of us here wish her harm, we merely want to see her spending more time with her children. And if she wants to reside in celebrityland, so be it, just do it on your own merit...don't continue exploiting your children's privacy and childhoods by keeping them in the public eye and filling their home with camera tracks, film schedules, lighting equipment and strangers substituting for family!

Ugh!!! Scrolling through the guide on cable see that TLC is having a J&K marathon on right now...I hope no one is watching or will be mildly curious to watch tonight..I myself am opting for an SVU marathon right now .I hope everyone will find something better to watch and free those poor children.

wildflowers said...

Steve is a paid puppet/ employee of TLC.
I would not give much stock in what he says on the show.

Beth and Jodi were there from day before the money came rolling in, out of love, sacrificing their time.

Who does Steve think he is to have any say on family and true friends.

Kate shit canned Kevin and Jodi, because they 'knew too much' and Jodi one upped Kate's attempt at show casing herself as the ' do it all' hands on mommy . Kate/TLC shit canned Jon because, he too, 'knew too much' and acknowledged the conflict between truth vs 'reality'. Now comes Steve, the ever 'loyal' body gaurd and 'family friend' who, up until now remained in the shadows, would NEVER dare disrupt the facade that is Kate Kreider/Gosselin because , LIKE KATE, his financial security aka JOB is dependant on the continued exploitation of the Gosselin children. Period

Laurie said...

It will be the Next Food Network Star for me too! Can't wait!

Candymom said...

Jon is doing good showing more interest is his childrens well being. I have to go past thier house everyday to work. And you can tell when Jon is there. He is always outside with those kids. When Kate is there you can tell, because there is never anyone outside. There is no movement what so ever. Those kids are never out playing and getting some fresh air. And I'll tell you, we've had some beautiful weather for a month and a half now. Keep up the good work Jon!!!! He also looks like he's shedding some pounds. Unlike Kate!!

PatE said...

Kate can't stop working outside the home because then she would have no excuse to be alone with Steve!

No TLC for me. Will be watching Next Food Network Star and HGTV.

I will NOT be watching.. nothing could be more boring.. Kudos to all who are not watching (my BF wants to watch just to piss me off and aggravate me and think it's funny - he will get nothing..lol) I have been done with Katie Irene for the longest time.

Not watching for sure. I am watching Bridezilla on We, not Momzilla on TLC!

Gina said...

Um Liz... (Khate) She looks nasty in that dress and fat! You gotta be nuts!

Rose said...

In the tups' fifth birthday party episode, Kate whines about the paparazzi, saying "I don't know why we're so interesting. Go follow someone else. Look, there's another mother there. Follow her!" Funny how she has the guts to say something like that when the ONLY reason she exists on TV is because people have followed her family and their story. Does she really want everyone to stop following her? I highly, highly doubt it. Just another thing for her to complain about, to prove how hard HER life is.

What bothered me even more, though, was at the end of the episode, when Kate was crying about how she and Jon turned into two entirely different people and how hard it is for her. At one point, amidst the crying, she looks at someone off on the side, nods, and gives a small smile as if to say "Am I doing a good job? Does this look convincing enough?" It was extremely obvious. It amazes me how you can watch an episode for two minutes and notice a million things like that.

PA Midstate Mommy said...

Like the rest of America, except for self-centered Kart, I am following the crisis in the gulf daily. It deeply saddens me to listen to the families down there talk about their livelihoods being destroyed, and not knowing what they'll do since they've fished all their lives to support their families. That combined with the sheer destruction to the environment, not to mention the thousands of oil workers who will be losing their jobs because of the spill is simply devastating. I don't need to watch Kart sit on her throne tonight, telling viewers how hard it was for her to take all 8--count 'em, 8 kids, to Florida on an all expenses paid, luxury vacation because she was down a "helper."
Honestly, with all this tragedy occurring in our country right now, how can people stomach listening to her? So many have been struck by catastrophe, thousands of layoffs due to the economy, the floods, now the oil spill. The last thing I need is to listen to her pathetic crocodile tears over such trivial things. She sickens me.

emschick1128 said...

Kate has a lot of competition tonight MTV music awards, Celtics vs Lakers (go Celtics!). I think her ratings will be there best tonight then there will be a gradual decline. I love that there's special to talk about what Kate has been up to. Haven't we been listening to that all friggin year??? I'm sure it will be all about what an amazing and strong person is and how she has struggled as a poor single mother with no help. Same story, it's very old by now. Now everyone gets to hear from purse boy Steve, how exciting!!

K8STFU said...

Candymom-

To be honest, I wish you DIDN'T see Jon playing outside with the kids. The fact that you do means he is providing photo ops for the ROL paps.

From what I understand, they have ACRES AND ACRES of land behind the house but they continue to "play" with the kids on the driveway ? (oh, and had to LMAO at the pictures of Can Do Kate doing a flower arrangement on her front stoop)

I am not watching nor do I have any interest in doing so. I will be watching the Celtics -hopefully- beat the Lakers !

Jane in California said...

I had no desire to watch Kate Kreider force her 8 children to perform for the camera so she could get paid. I did watch the first episode of Next Food Network Star instead and enjoyed it very much. Yes, it's a reality tv show, but no minor children are involved.

I hope TLC's sponsors get good and irritated over the lousy ratings this show is sure to generate.

Many thanks to those who watched to provide a list of advertisers. I will be writing to some of the larger ones to let them know why I'll be boycotting them until they drop their advertising from this show.

Call Me Crazy said...

Hi mama san.

You don't have to be a Nielsen family these days to have your TV viewing monitored and counted. Some cable companies have the technology to monitor what their customers are viewing in certain markets. Also, shows that are TIVO'ed or DVR'ed, as well as hits on internet sites such as YouTube, can be tracked.

So non-Nielsen people should definitely continue to NOT tune in to these shows.

Hey, Posh...can I ask you a question? What does Mr. Gray sound like? Does he have accented speech...didn't I hear he was from Australia or New Zealand? Is his voice high or low? Just curious, since we've seen so many photos and video of him but never heard the voice. Thanks.

Just have to give a shoutout to all the Celtics fans (sorry Midnight Serenade and Monster Mommy). I alternated between the game and JT and Carole King on PBS. Thanks to all who contributed to the sponsor list.

HW said...

We passed by TLC on our way to the hockey game and as Kate's face showed up on the screen, my 19-year -old son (who leaves soon for Marine boot camp) said "WHEN IS SHE GOING TO FINALLY GO TO HELL?"
I don't usually tolerate language like that but I nearly fell off my chair laughing.

The Blackhawks won last night.

path said...

I was a channel surfer last night--those kids are now mugging for the camera like their mother--and when they are not, they are showing behavior like GWOP have all said would happen. Bad manners, complaining, waiting your turn, going along with a group, freaking out over meaningless stuff, etc. I love KIDS--I even like to watch a good tantrum in a super market once in awhile--Each time I switched over it was one or more complaining--the wet suits, the birds, the boat trip!! These people cannot have fun no matter wherever they go!!! It is up to the adults to set the tone. Kate just sets them up for failure each time. Her tirade at the airport-pathetic. I think I can tell the meltdown from being tired, too hot, physically uncomfortable from the spoiled rotten kid tantrums. I feel so sorry for the Gosselin kids. They have adults/TLC in their lives who allow and think such poor behavior/antics from their mother sells the show. Child abuse frame by frame.

Candymom said...

Guess I should of said that when they are outside playing it is not in the driveway. You have to see thier house in order to understand thier playing enviroment. First of all the acres you refer to, are mostly wooded areas.Don't think Jon would want them playing in thier too much, or Kate for that matter. And to see them playing out back isn't that hard, considering thier house sits at an incline when you come around a bend in the road. Pretty hard for them to play outside and not be seen. Even around the barn and the pool you would be able to catch a view of them.

pinkdiamond611 said...

Want Kart to disappear? Don't click the videos concerning her. If there is interest in what she does, she will NEVER go away. If ROL posts a video and there are no "hits" then the Kart and the Kon game will go away. Simple as that. Same goes for the TLC TV episodes.

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

I would add to this the suggestion to actually GO to the TLC and ROL sites and click on anything and everything that is NOT about her. That'll really throw the numbers off!

maynard said...

In my opinion Mady will always be made out to be the "issues" child. Part of the storyline plot. How can anyone or thing treat a child this way? It makes me so sad.

noh84k8 said...

I, too, passed on Khate's new show. I mean, really, it was the 5th game of Lord Stanley's Cup! But seriously, I refuse to watch anything on TLC any more. But I have one question. How can I find out who the advertisers were in the show so that I can send them a letter? The sooner TLC is finally put to eternal sleep the better. It's not just K+8, it's all their shows. It's nothing more than exploitation and it makes me physically ill.

And why is Steve suddenly allowed to speak? Emails that even Kate hasn't read? How stupid do they really think we are? Here's a thought - if Kate is so concerned that her life is being threatened, why not just STFU, get off the television, get off magazine and tabloid covers. Quit the business. Once you're out of sight, you're safe! It seems easy enough to me!

Thanks for the rant.

BTW, I found the video of Kate asking Niecy to teach her how to dance like a black person. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ne2BxJTTXE&playnext_from=TL&videos=kQXEtCPGDpA
I can't wait to hear how the Klovers defend this one.

So how do we tell Discovery, TLC, their advertisers and sponsors that enough is enough? Does anyone know who advertised in last night's shows?

Can't See Sheep said...

Didn't watch the little katie Kreider show & won't, watched a movie with friends.

@maynard, I agree it is so very sad & very unfair to Mady. They make her out to be the "bad" child & there isn't anything she can do about it, until until she gets older. Then maybe they'll end up regretting that they made her out to be the difficult child.

Candymom said...

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

I have seen their house on a google satellite image that was posted here sometime back. There is plenty of room for them to play elsewhere & no not all the acres are wooded. Yes there is a copse of trees but it is far from being the majority of acres.

If they did not want the children playing in the woods then they shouldn't have put any of the crooked houses back there & to my knowledge two of the houses were put in the little woods. It's obvious why they play out front & the people here have known exactly why it's done for sometime now & that is so katie's beloved, hired, lone paparazzi can get his pics. Sorry, but on hot days they need to be playing anywhere but near the BLACK driveway, those driveways hold heat like nobody's business.

'Kate Plus 8' specials way up in viewers
by Lynette Rice

The premiere of the first of two Kate Plus 8 specials was a boon to TLC on Sunday: The episode titled “6th Birthday Surprise” averaged 3.4 million viewers while “Inside Kate’s Worlds” attracted 3 million. Both episodes not only posted triple-digit gains over TLC’s second quarter averages in the time period but earned double-digit ratings and delivery gains over the November 2009 airings of Jon and Kate Plus 8.

The Kate Plus 8 specials — which focus on the divorced mom’s complicated home life — are different from Twist of Kate, a new TLC series debuting this fall in which the mother of eight will travel the country to meet families with challenges at work or at home and attempt to “walk a mile in their shoes.” It’s unclear how many specials TLC will produce, but the next one airs July 11.
http://hollywoodinsider.ew.com/2010/06/07/kate-plus-8-ratings/

Comment - How are these great ratings? These are terrible! Separation Episode garnered 10.6 million viewers and then after that down to 4 to 4.2 and that was considered terrible by the press. This is a debut and it is below the terrible numbers by a million . I realize that it may have beaten TLC’s Sunday night previous rating but to say this is evidence of good news seems irresponsible and misleading.

jibberjabbers said...

3.4 million are excellent ratings. It's over the top. I mean, this is a show about Kate Gosselin and a bunch of kids going on trips.

3.4 million tuned in to watch that.

That is beyond expectation. I was prediction 1 million or less.

couch potato said...

I was watching Bridezillas revisited last night and one of the B!t@hy bride's new husband was reading some of the things viewers wrote on the internet about her. She said they were all haters and jealous of her. I guess that's the new rationalization. Act terrible on T.V., and if anyone points out the bad behavior, call them haters and jealous.

Only good thing about the storm that knocked out electricity in my hometown is that no one could watch TLC last night.

Of course I had no intentions of watching because I was planning on seeing my Celts beat the Lakers!

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

His voice/accent is very similar to the gecko from the Geiko commercials -- a very strong accent from either Australia or New Zealand (He's from one of those countries, but I don't remember which). The clip I saw was short -- just a sentence from him. I believe the link is posted up-thread if you want to hear it for yourself.

LIZ123 said...

I recently got into an argument with family members who think Khate is the best thing ever... I tried telling them she's making money off the kids and they (one of whom is an RN) said there's no way she could afford them otherwise and commended her for not choosing reduction. I said she treated John like a dog and they insisted she knew he was one from the beginning and needed to talk to him that way... anyways my point is i am really shocked and sad to see that people still defend her even after seeing her awful behavior... is it just us exaggerating? they made me feel like all of my points were invalid... I don't think shes ever going away =(

K8STFU said...

Regarding Mady:

I have been a fan of hers for quite some time. She is very observant and aware and is confident enough to call out her own mother on all the BS.

I just cannot imagine having my child being the target of countless, hateful YT videos and hurtful comments about her being a brat, and doing NOTHING to change the situation and protect her/him.

Same goes for the rest of the kids. Their behavior may be hard to watch but they have never been given any guidance on how to be kind, gracious, compassionate or patient .

My heart truly breaks for the Gosselin kids =(

getreal said...

I get that Kate wants to show off her 'revenge body' but shoving her human meat in to a too small 'casing' does absolutely no justice to her cause. She comes across looking just like a sausage over flowing its casing. Kate SHOULD have opted for an Athleta brand 'sports' style bathing suit that complimented her assets, and her 'runner's legs'.

K8STFU said...

Can't See Sheep - right on, great comments.

Candymom - just to refresh my own memory, I went back to the archives and found the first aerial photos of the new house. There are indeed ACRES AND ACRES of beautiful lawn behind the house, the treeline is pretty far away.....I am quite certain that somehow, somewhere, the kids could play without being ooogled by the ROL paps. And maybe building a simple fence would help ? Sarah Palin built a huge fence to give her privacy from her neighbor. I know she's just a lowly - ex governor, and not a STAH!! like K8, but there are ways of getting/maintaining privacy if one truly wants/needs it.

For your reference, feel free to check out the archives from 10/2008.

6/07/2010 12:19 PM

I believe he said there were threats left in her mailbox and on her doorstep that she didn't know about.

And then went on to talk about the emails. So two different topics.

jessica said...

Jibber Jabbers I think I am going to agree to disagree with you on this one (with all due respect). :)

The trainwreck divorce was about 10 million then after that there were all of these articles about the 61% drop to 4 and 4.2 million - the sky was falling.

Fast forward to now.

Kate has been on Dancing with the Stars which averages 19 to 21 million viewers. There has been Dancing with the Stars promos, the morning show circuit, the evening entertainment shows, Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel, People Magazine covers etc. A book tour to generate interest - the PR machine was rampant but still -- The book sales and tour tanked.

It is a new show debut and it gets 3.4 million with the children and 3 million without the children, a 400,000 drop between hours one and two.

According to the Department of Commerce, there are approximately 115 million households and 300 million people.

I just don't see this as over the top--I see curiousity watchers who previously didn't see the show who wondered what the hype was about and the Kate fans.

The articles are not referencing previous Jon and Kate ratings, they are referencing TLC ratings at the same time slot. What was normally on TLC Sundays nights?

In summary, I would think the suits at TLC would have expected alot more bang for their investment. JMO

GIMME GIMME said...

I would say those were good ratings for a workaday premier, but not from someone who goes around espousing herself as ratings gold, love her or hate her, of course. It is probably the best they have had since the other show went off, but I gotta feeling they expected more and while calling it a goldmine are privately disappointed.

If she got that on the premier special event they are not likely to go up from there but down. I can't imagine all those people stayed tuned in because I sure couldn't. I had to flip away when she was on the couch. I hate that but that surely is most "favoritist" thing in the whole wide world - esides the working tups, of course, who like the little troopers they are gave it their all, mugging for the cameras, bringing all the cute stuff they could muster.

I just felt an air of desperation about the parts that I caught.

Catlover said...

It appears to me that MS Krieder has had some facial injections, boobie job and spray tan from h***.She wants to be the same color as the kids IMO.

readerlady said...

@ K8STFU

ITA with you re Mady. She's the barometer for the health of that family, and it's not good. I get so frustrated with many of the negative posters re her behavior. Yes, she engages in bratly behavior at times, but consider the situation. She's a 9 year old CHILD whose needs have been minimized or ignored since she was 3 years old. Who wouldn't act out in those circumstances? Instead of ragging on her, why not rag on those responsible. A child does not raise him/herself. When needs aren't met, something has to give and a child reacts in the only way he/she knows how. Unfortunately, Khate has neither the intelligence, empathy or desire to do anything about it other than escalate the undesirable behavior. I share your concern for all the G8, but I'm afraid that Mady is the one who is most in jeopardy.

No, I think she was asked if she needed a Kleenex. It looked like as she was crying and wiping her face someone off camera asked if she wanted a Kleenex and then she nodded slightly and leaned forward and had a Kleenex in her hand and was wiping her face with it.

IMO, the TLC suits WERE expecting alot more for their invesment. After all, they have their new 'front man' aka Steve the body gaurd claiming the hoopla that surrounds Kate Gosselin to be above and beyond anything he experienced while protecting British royalty.

Anonymous said...

I think the wheels are slowly coming off of this machine. I think the wacky antics of the children have played out. Kate needs a certain amount of money to maintain her lifestyle, I've read $400.000 a year. The problems is, the public is moving on. I don't see her being on tv indefinitely. I think the house will have to be sold. If she is able to sell it, maybe she can buy a smaller, but still comfortable one. I don't know about the public schools, but being that they are in an affluent county I would suspect they are good. She needs to cut corners.

One of the funniest things yet. Yeah sure, Kate is more of a celebrity and issue than someone like Princess Diana. Do they think we are absolute idiots? Does being around Kate automatically dumb down people?

Jamie Ayers was so just a Kate parrot of poor, poor, misunderstood Kate. They don't realize how very unappealing that is?

Hambone said...

I was in Chik Fil-A this evening and we were sitting near the play area. There were a couple kids playing and then some bickering started. One of the children ran up to her mother to tattle, and the mom said loudly so everyone could hear, "Stop acting like Mady Gosselin and go play nicely, please. You don't to be like her so stop it!"

The kid looked so insulted and took a sip of her drink and ran back into the play area and played nicely.

How sad for Mady that parents across the nation are using her as a model of how NOT to be. But I guess in Kate's eyes, it's ok because she's making money off her daughter so that makes it right.

BerksPa said...

About Kate's property.
Just so you know because aerial shots don't show it - - But their property is very hilly, etc. The only flat part would be where the pool is and the front drive. They could possibly put a sports court in the back but it would get a lot of Western Sun which is HOT in midday until sunset.
I think she just needs to put up tall shrubbery or a privacy fence around the front yard instead of the cheap PVC fence that is there now. For the safety of my kids, that is what I would put there. Damn the cost...

* * * *

I did a little Googling to try to find out what are the top rated cable shows. I found a site called TV by the Numbers. According to them, for the week ending May 30th, the highest rated cable shows were NBA Playoffs, scoring the top 6 slots, receiving between 6.8 million and 8.6 million viewers. Coming in at #25 on their list was The Oreilly Factor, which received 3.3 million viewers.

link: http://tvbythenumbers.com/2010/06/02/cable-top-25-nba-playoffs-spongebob-crowd-the-weeks-rankings/52804#more-52804

I'll keep looking to find a current weekly ranking that includes Kate's most recent monstrosity. But I do take heart by the fact that if Kate Plus 8 had been included in the rankings for May 30th, it would have come in just above a rerun of NCIS.

Somehow, I doubt the suits at TLC want to celebrate that - lol! Kate can barely bring in more viewers than a re-run shown on a Monday night at 7:00 p.m.

Jane in California said...

To add some more perspective, I also was reading about TLC shows and their ratings in general. They are very proud to have about 15 shows that generate slightly more than a million viewers per episode. So sadly, since Kate Plus 8 generated over 3 times as many viewers, they will probably make another "special." I read that the next "special" is set to air in July.

So for now, it's not a weekly show and let's hope it stays that way. I am also hopeful that viewership for the next special will drop but I also fully expect Kate to thrust herself somehow into the limelight shortly before air time in order to boost ratings.

I still think it's funny that Kate Kreider and the Kiwi are just barely holding their own against a rerun of NCIS.

Kate's Nemesis said...

If you want to hear old Steve Neild, speak about protecting Princess Katie Kreider... watch "Showbiz Tonight" on HLN this evening. They also do a repeat at 8 a.m. PST.

He's a jackass- TLC puppet. And I think he has carpal tunnel syndrome from clutching Kate's handbag 24/7. For a guy from New Zealand... he is quite the pansy. Some people will do and say anything for money and press... (Yeah, you too, Meredith Vierra- and fat lady named Kate from People Mag... SELL OUTS!)

Update: I read the new Us Weekly article.

Lastly we are not seeking any attention. I’m focusing on my kids and learning from my past mistakes so I can move forward in a positive light not only for me but my family. I am enjoying my simple life in PA. I love being near my kids, it’s the best move I ever made

Tami said...

Unless you are connected with Neilson or another of the rating companies there is NO way anyone can tell if you watch K8. It would be very scary if any/all shows could be tracked to your TV access. I was contacted years ago by Neilson. When it was outlined what I had to do, keep a log of all TVs and what stations were being watched. I asked if I would get paid. Of course not. The interviewer tried to convince me that it would be prestigious to be included. Ha-ha. I declined and have not heard from them since.

***********
I did a week of it once and I did get paid, something like $25.

If they'd asked last night, I sure didn't watch! I watched Avatar. About 5 minutes before her show, my husband said it's coming on and turned on the channel. I saw about a minute of it and turned it off and said no way am I watching and then a little later put in the movie. Then when the rerun was coming on my son said it's coming on and that I missed it. I said no, I have no intention of watching. This time I saw a couple minutes on the plane and the airport walk and turned if off again. I just have no interest and can't see how anyone could! It's all phony lies from a selfish witch who is laughing at everyone who is willing to line her pockets.. I'm not one of them!

Wow. This is a doozy. I was perusing Kate's dumbass blog and stumbled across this post. I will type it verbatim, typos and all, so as not to change anything she was saying:

"On the kids airboat rides in Florida, they went to my uncles tour...Boggy Creek Air Boat Rides in Souh Port. And my uncle drove them around ALL DAY with NO breaks! I'm sorry but if anyone has been to Florida in he summer you know that 98 degrees feels like 106! Kate wouldn't even share sandwhiches hat she had for the camera crew!

As an airboat captain you work for tips just like a waiter...at the end of the day she did NOT leave a tip and had booked the WHOLE day so the captains didn't make any money! Kate in my book is worthless! And the way she uses her children is CRAZY! She should be locked in a looney bin!!!

What an asshole. Maybe she can use that tip money to buy her kids some organic milk.

gosselins please leave said...

I would much rather see a documentary of families who face a struggle, but find a way to stay married, and happy, during the struggle. That is what attracted me to the Gosselin story at first. Now it is a circus side show...

I would also LOVE to see a documentary on the Chukwu Octuplets (septuplets? one died at a week old) who are almost 12, and their parents are still married!

Don't care for cryin' Kate.

About Kate's property.
Just so you know because aerial shots don't show it - - But their property is very hilly, etc. The only flat part would be where the pool is and the front drive.
--------------------------

I'm pretty sure that if kate wanted a flat area in the back for the kids to play, TLC would see that there was one. I'm also sure that with the money kate has she could do it too, she does have a lot & if she was as interested as she claims to be in keeping prying eyes & camera out she could put up a more security minded fence as well. Both TLC & kate have whopping great wads of cash & could have either or both done. However this house like everything else is not for or about the kids it's ALL about kate Kreider. She did go to all the effort to get a bodyguard apparently, but does nothing to make the house safer, very odd & very telling.

I don't think the Royal Family received such "hoopla" because, well...they're ROYALTY! They are not admitting that the hoopla is from people making fun, making taunts, yelling obscenities, basically they want to see a train wreck! He guards her "feelings" by steering away anyone who would dare ask her a legititmate question (didn't this happen at one of her book signings?). He guards her feelings by deleting all the "nasty emails" (didn't Jon do this?) The haters (yes, HATERS) far outnumber the fans. The more PAID people come to her defense, the more ridiculous it is! NOT ONE TRUE FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER WILL TRULY SPEAK ON HER BEHALF! They don't understand the "hate"? Steve says her family has betrayed her...Please go back and truly dig into WHY there is no family around. All the way back to the "unmatching" cribs, refusing Walmart clothing, demanding a nurse for an extra year, soliciting freebies from work, exchanging a FREE minivan because of the colour, getting free organic beef and then selling some to your brother's family for a profit, selling clothes and items that were donated to you for a profit, REFUSING to let your family members get paid for appearing on your show (doing this behind their backs) lying about how simple things are a 'rare treat', having a revolving door of volunteers do ALL of your housework, laundry etc. and lie about that...GOSH! Meredith, Steve and Company...how DON'T YOU GET THE HATE??

In my opinion Mady will always be made out to be the "issues" child. Part of the storyline plot. How can anyone or thing treat a child this way? It makes me so sad.
-----------------------------------

I believe it is sad too and I believe once Mady gets older she will show even more psychological issues because of this. This child needs positive feedback and not just negative negative negative as it is right now. I feel for her.

"I'm pretty sure that if kate wanted a flat area in the back for the kids to play, TLC would see that there was one."

A "flat area?"...like a little helicopter pad? I'm sure that would keep them amused for all of two minutes. In order to make a flat area, you'd tear up the whole terrain, disturbing the drainage and landscaping which would subject the house to flooding issues. They'd have to bulldoze the area, bring in landfill, plant grass, etc. Totally impractical and not likely to happen.

You would think that TLC would make sure the captains and such as that were well compensated and fed far beyond a tip and that they would have comped him as far as a shout out for his business.

Mary said...

Hi

I did not watch and will not watch. I really feel for the twins. I think there is some serious issues here. A few years ago we had a rash of childen taking thier life. These poor girls ahave no happiness in thier lives. A doll,toy, trip will not do it. I hug being tucked into bed some interest in what they are doing is better than any doll They might get. I saw the so called family Jon should have been there. These children
have forced smiles they are not happy. I hope the school is looking after these children. As far as I am concerned they have no mother. All Kate did is have them. once that happened it was someone else job to tend to thier needs. I do know in that episode where she went to the twins room and threw down blankets and every thing in that room is so Joan Crawford. I am sure they heard all about it in school. She did this because they watered to ride with thier Father. MY If it was me I would never forget it or forgive her. I also think this is a weekly thing in that house of horrors. It is a house not a home. Please someone HELP those children

Captain of the Titanic said...

I wonder what would happen if we all emailed a video clip of Mady saying she wants to die to the Family Court judge who gave Kate custody?

Maybe an all out blitz like that would get some attention and help for that child.

Kate and TLC are beyond evil.

IMHOandFYI said...

As to Steve guarding royalty:

He's as bogus as Kate (birds of a feather?). The royal family is guarded by the SAS, an elite military unit. Members are hand-picked from military units to undergo SAS training (no volunteers) and are trained killing machines -- no purse carriers. It's like claiming to be a bodyguard for the US President -- no way. Presidents are guarded by the Service Service. Neither the royal famiy nor presidents hire "rent-a-booby-bodyguard."

HW said...

I didn't watch enough of this new show to see how Mady was portrayed but I've always felt so bad for her. Kate especially seems to take great delight in labeling her a problem child. It's as though Kate can point at Mady and say "See. Not only do I have 8 kids but one of them is this difficult."
I also sense a great deal of jealousy toward Mady on Kate's part. I especially picked up on that during the episode where the twins played mom and had to fix a meal. Kate gave them a nearly impossible (for their age) lunch to fix and seemed strangely pleased when they couldn't measure up.
Kate seems especially eager to make Mady accountable for her behavior when most of the time it mirrors Kate's behavior perfectly. I just keep wondering why she's targeted this one child to hate so much. Perhaps there was a time when Jon gave Mady special attention and Kate couldn't stand that?
All of the Gosselin children are neglected and verbally and emotionally abused but Mady gets the worst of it.
And when she gets old enough to tell her story, Kate and all the other adults who allowed this to happen are going to fall...and fall hard.

Go Away Gosselins! said...

I have read a lot of comments saying "don't worry, Kate's downward spiral will come". Do you really think so?

I mean, I used to think and hope that Kate's life would fall apart and she would lose everything. However, every time it seems like that is going to happen another sponsor or network swoops in and gives her another deal that will allow her to continue her "privileged" lifestyle.

As much as I would like Kate's downward spiral to happen, I just don't think it will. There are too many people out there who are willing to give the despicable woman a chance at fame.

Daner said...

My guess is that Kate's show will tank in a few weeks once interest dies down. Then, Steve will announce his divorce and he a Kate will announce that they have fallen in love to drum up more interest.

I believe that they are together which is why she keeps saying she is not read to date.

Jane in California said...

I recall when the show had some clips of the kids running around the new McMansion grounds, into a barn, etc. It's not all 100% hilly once you walk out their back door.

Secondly, if you had a family of 8 and were on a reality tv show and were in the market for a lovely place out in the country where your children could play in privacy, why in the world would you purchase a home where the only scrap of supposedly "playable" land is your concrete driveway right out front? That's just plain stupid.

I grew up out in the country surrounding by hillsides. Amazingly enough, we actually climbed up those hilly parts, played on them, and did quite well.

It may be hilly behind their house, but they could certainly be playing out back and enjoying privacy. The real reason that they are made to play out front is for photo opportunities.

It's a real shame that those children live out in the country, yet their main recreation area at home appears to be a concrete driveway in clear view of the public, just like they were animals in some low rent zoo.

stupidisasstupiddoes said...

Jamie Ayers was so just a Kate parrot of poor, poor, misunderstood Kate. They don't realize how very unappealing that is?

According to Jamie Ayers, Kate's BFF of nine years, Kate is misunderstood and if the nay sayers would just 'get to know her'. Wasn't that the purpose/premise of Kate show casing 4+ years of the realist of real 'reality show' was all about? Getting to know the 'real' Kate? So there is a totally different 'version' of Kate that she chooses not to include in her 'realist of real' reality show and is reserved ONLY for those who are truly worthy of 'getting to know her'. OK Jamie. Now I 'get it'!

Vanessa said...

Here's a thought...they received a new free kitchen in return for some free advertising. They received free "crazy houses" or whatever the hell those playhouses were, in return for some free advertising. TWO new washers and dryers (driers?) The list could go on and on.... Why haven't they approached a FENCING company to put up a huge privacy fence? Oh yeah, then there wouldn't be the daily pap shots for her to whine and complain about.

Unless you are connected with Neilson or another of the rating companies there is NO way anyone can tell if you watch K8. It would be very scary if any/all shows could be tracked to your TV access. I was contacted years ago by Neilson. When it was outlined what I had to do, keep a log of all TVs and what stations were being watched. I asked if I would get paid. Of course not. The interviewer tried to convince me that it would be prestigious to be included. Ha-ha. I declined and have not heard from them since.

This is incorrect. With the transition to "digital cable", all your views are TRACKED. Unless you "OPT-OUT" in the contract you signed with your digital cable provider.

Most people don't read the small prints.

This is the reason why "ratings" are so high. People believe that that just because they aren't signed with Nielsen, they are free to watch.

The truth is, since the transition to Digital Cable, cable provider are "selling" their data to advertisers and to the Nielsen company.

GOOGLE is your friend.

Here is another example:

Charter to sell L.A. TV viewing data

Charter has agreed to provide Nielsen Co. with data from those subscribers' digital set-top boxes in an effort to give advertisers and TV programmers a clearer picture of the channels and commercials people are watching.

You think Charter subscribers in general know that their data is being sold to Neilsen?

They'd have to bulldoze the area, bring in landfill, plant grass, etc. Totally impractical and not likely to happen.
--------------------------

First off I wasn't thinking on a little helicopter pad, I was thinking of it on the scale that I am familiar with, but I do know what I'm talking about & have seen it happen. If the wealthy want flat land it gets flattened. They truck in whatever they need & if anything underground needs changing it gets changed.

My great uncle worked heavy machinery much of his life doing this sort of thing exactly & I have a good friend who's been a landscaper for 34 years & dealt with wealthy woman that have visions on how the landscape of their property (yes, property, not yard or garden) is to be & it has very little to do with the actual terrain of the land they purchased. A lot of property has been flattened to mimic some of the great sweeping southern acres & large trees are brought in to dominate these landscapes.

I have seen flat property turned purposely into hilly land for rich children that dirt bike & no, I'm not talking about postage stamp sized patches of land, never mind there is great terrain 5 miles down the road for it, for rich children that like to ski a ski hill goes up. I can think of 2 families off hand that purchased flat land & decided they wanted their houses built on a hill & did so. Yep, seemed silly to me, but it was done, no they weren't in danger of flooding. Several people have had land flattened & levelled for their race horses, for their sulky horses, their own private tracks to practice on. The list goes on & on. Yes it does look like a mess for awhile, but grass grows & they pay people to plant it.

These ladies also have no qualms about arguing with the city over their pipes that are in the way of their vision for their land & sometimes it gets to the point where the argument makes it into the papers, especially if it's the Mayor's aunt or some such relative. You'd also be surprised at the truckloads of fill brought in each year just to do this kind of work alone. Entire acreages are flattened, yes, it's expensive, however it does get done. It's not like the know how isn't there, they do it for subdivisions all the time. It's not that difficult to get done if you know who to call & people are happy to do it as they are very well paid.

Jane In California made a number of excellent points on this. It's isn't that bad out back of the house. Children have played on hills for centuries, it's not like they're scaling a mountain back there & they are not always riding their bikes & cars. It is silly & terrible that these children are forced to be on display & that excuses are constantly made to keep them there, it's just further exploitation of them & even more of a lack of privacy. There is already too much of their lives on camera they should not be forced to play outside in front of them on a daily basis & sorry, but I can see no reason good enough to keep them there.

Midnight Serenade said...

I think that some are overlooking the fact that the children playing in the front of the house may be for security reasons. Granted, when we were kids, we played wherever and whenever. Times were different then. It's not only a matter of the area being "hilly." That's a secondary concern. I wouldn't let my six-year-olds roam 20+ acres without supervision, and it's impossible for one person to know the whereabouts of all the children if they were allowed the freedom to play wherever. The grounds are not protected by security fences. Anyone could be lurking in those woods. The kids, sadly, are commodities, and anyone at any time could grab them. It makes much more sense to have them play in a designated area where they can be supervised. I just wouldn't take the risk.

Nah, they do stuff like that on HGTV for people who want to change their yards. However, you are right about one thing: Nothing amuses those kids for long. They have been so spoiled it takes a lot more than playing in their yard to keep them happy. Maybe if they had been given a chance to learn to amuse themselves instead of being dragged out to a million places for "rare treats".

Wow. This is a doozy. I was perusing Kate's dumbass blog and stumbled across this post. I will type it verbatim, typos and all, so as not to change anything she was saying:

"On the kids airboat rides in Florida, they went to my uncles tour...Boggy Creek Air Boat Rides in Souh Port. And my uncle drove them around ALL DAY with NO breaks! I'm sorry but if anyone has been to Florida in he summer you know that 98 degrees feels like 106! Kate wouldn't even share sandwhiches hat she had for the camera crew! Later that day the boat crew and captain found 3 FULL trays of food in the trash!

Posted by Melisss H. 6/7/10 @ 10:40 am"

BUT this was also posted there:

Unreal the hate spewed here and out right lies. The story of my uncle drove them around all day long on the air boat is bull. There is another one in FB saying my BIL was who drove the air boat for Kate and her children.Went on to say how he thought they were so nice and even took pictures together. TLC paid them for the trip and extra time. The air boat rides are not usually that many hours. So for them to be able to have that boat for that long meant they had to get a special reservation and pay what many call is a charter fee. I can tell you there is many Scout troops who have done long trips around the Orlando area. I guess anything to make Kate look bad. I say caught in a big fat lie.

air rides said...

Taken from Kate's blog:

I am Margie L. the owner of Boggy Creek Airboat Rides and Kate used our airboats as a transportation to and from our park to keep the birthday party private and she went out of her way to be sure the paparazzi would not be able to find them. Our captains enjoyed the hour or two that they were able to take the Gosselins to explore the wetlands to show them our local wildlife. As we have said to other various media outlets that have called us for our comments Kate, her children and the crew were a pleasure to work with, and it would be an honor to have their wonderful family again.

Yes, kids are very dramatic, especially 10 year old girls, but it would be very unwise to brush Mady's words off as an overly dramatic pre-teen until she has been evaluated. We all know she is in a very unstable environment. Kate and Jon, I'm sure are planning to make light of her words and are hoping the public does too. Even saying the words once warrants an evaluation, in my opinion.
My daughter was very dramatic at age ten but NEVER said anything near "I want to die."

K8STFU said...

Regarding the boat company's comments : of course Margie will say only positive things about the Gosselins. They suck it up and deal with K8 for a few hours , they get free advertising to 3 million viewers, it's a win win situation for everyone BUT THE KIDS.

Can't See Sheep said...

@HW, I didn't say that, my contribution to that post was:

"Maybe the tape of kate's worst moments would be a good choice to send. :)"

But I do agree with your post, Mady & all the other Gosselin children should be seen by a good therapist & evaluated, so should both parents. Yes, Mady is dramatic, but far better to play it safe.

Carrin said...

Joy Behar had a couple of minutes on her show tonight where she was asking some guests what they thought of Kate + 8 returning to TV.

There was only a small amount of interest shown to that subject.

I don't know who any of those people were, but one of them said she thought Kate's ratings would drop next week, since most tuned in out of curiosity.

Nobody cared enough to really get into the subject.

OC Girl said...

Regarding Mady, her comment, "I want to die," was barely audible. My closed captioning didn't pick it up. She mumbled it instead of being dramatic (like she has been in the past), so she wasn't doing it for the cameras nor garnering attention away from her siblings.

It's a red flag that Kate didn't pick up on. Instead, Kate tossed it up to Mady being jealous about another birthday party. So sad.

jasmine said...

Didn't watch Kate's new show, but reportedly over 3 million viewers did and witnessed her 9 year old child "working" on this TLC reality show stating she wants to die. Are there any concerned adults directly involved with producing this show or are they all just concerned about making money?

Friend said...

Remember the episode when Kate was reading a story to all of the children and Cara complained about a hurt leg? Rather then Kate stop filming she sent the nanny to take Cara to the doctor.

In the most recent show Alexis was sick and she left her bf Jamie to tend to Alexis.

Kate sure reveals her priorities doesn't she?

22Starz said...

I want to add on to Madys statement about saying I want to die.

This is a child who went through a very public divorce.This is a child who cant grieve the loss of her family without anyone and everyone around her knowing whats going on.Her own mother thinks its ok to tell anyone who'll listen how Mady is "dealing".
Mady is in school...and dont tell me that there are not kids who give her crap about what they see or hear about her family in the news or in the "papers". Kids can be darn right cruel.They see Mady and her sibs going to all these fun places doing all this fun stuff that they dont...you cant tell me her peers wont or dont see green and give her shit.

Who does this poor child go to for help?Who can she turn to for help.We know her mother is far too busy to deal with one of Madys "outbursts".Its clear that Mady knows she isnt important.This is a huge red flag.

Someone needs to help this child.All these kids need councling...councling where kate cant be involved or control whats being said or done.

Sorry if I cant say this...but Please dont watch this show...the kids are begging for a normal life away from the spotlight!

she is evil said...

Enough with the back and forth about where on the Orphanage's property the kids should play. Fine, let the kids drive their toddler cars in circles on the driveway and have picnics in the front yard. How about a privacy fence or hedge? If Kate wanted to protect her kids' privacy and give them a 'paparazzi-free life' (*roll eyes*), it could easily be accomplished. All she has to do is try a little bit.

Oh, and what's the difference between the paparazzi and the TLC's camera$, Kate? Bitch

IBM62 said...

Aside from the obvious fact that she exploits/abuses her children, I think the thing I dislike most about Kate is her stuck-up attitude. I've always had trouble dealing with snobby people (and have dealt with a lot of them in my time!) and know from personal experience that being made to feel as if you aren't even worth a reply is very, very hurtful. Really, makes you feel lower than dirt.

I don't agree with Kate's fans, but I do sort of feel for the ones who met their "hero" and were treated as if they were a complete burdon to her and talking to them was a waste of her precious time. How must it feel to have someone you really admire (for God knows what reason) snub you like that and treat you like a non-human? I just hope that some, if not all, of those fans saw the light after she treated them like used gum under her high hell shoe.

**********
Wasn't it reported back when they went on this trip (not when it aired) that one of the boys, perhaps Joel, was sick but was taken out of school? I seem to remember reading that here. Sounds like they were passing a bug around. But of course instead of postpone the trip, the show must go on! No way would I leave a sick kid with a helper in a hotel while I went out and played. They are not paying for this trip. She could have insisted to TLC that they extend the shooting to when the kids were recovered and then sat her ass in that hotel with them. They can always go to SeaWorld the next day!

The woman didn't seem to figure out that the reason Khate didn't want the paparazzi to find out is because of course she wanted all the footage to be fresh and new for her show. No one is allowed to exploit them but their own mother, afterall. I'm sure she does want them to come back; it's plenty of free advertising for them. And they can't speak badly about customers or it could hurt their reputation. But what sort of person would really find her pleasant? I'm sure there aren't many..

You know what Kate resembles? A Dementor from "Harry Potter." She sucks out all of the joy, fun, happiness, and warmth and replaces it with feelings of dread, fear, sorrow, and coldness instead.

Re: MADY

Going way back to when the tups had their first
televised birthday, and Mady was upset: the producer or cameraman asked her why, and she said she was
mad because such a fuss was made over the 6 little ones and not Cara and Mady's birthday.

I remember thinking that was a gutsy thing for her to say and admiring her for recognizing what she was feeling, and why.

Ever since then, (even though most people think she behaves badly), I've thought of Mady as the
only voice of reason in that family. She has always
hated the hypocrisy that she sees going on, and
she calls them on it. I think she's the most intelligent of the 10 of them.

Kate treats her horribly, because Mady is
the only one of ALL of them (including Jon) who is not afraid of Kate.

And, to Kate, that is intolerable.

If Kate needs a bodyguard, I wonder why she hasn't had the house and grounds wired for video surveillance. After all hate notes are being left in the mailbox and on the step. That is one long driveway. Why is't TLC worried enough to do this for Kate?

I found a fascinating and troubling article called:

Co-Narcissism: How We Accommodate to Narcissistic Parents
Alan Rappoport, Ph.D.

http://www.alanrappoport.com/
Co-Narcissism%20Article.pdf

If Kate Gosselin is truly a narcissist, (and I personally believe she is, but I would much prefer that she actually see a qualified psychologist or three to verify that), then things are not looking good for the kids. The words in italics are taken from the article itself, but only a small portion of that article is used here, it would be too long to fully copy, however I urge others to look up the article and read for yourself. I may have misinterpreted some things, and if anyone comes to a different conclusion, feel free to say so.

Dr. Rappoport maintains that narcissists and co-narcissists are created, usually due to growing up with a narcissistic parent (although I personally think that there occasionally has to be someone who becomes narcissistic even without being taught - after all, someone had to be the first narcissist!) Narcissistic people seek out others who will enable their narcissism - the co-narcissist:

...the narcissist needs to be in the spotlight, and the co-narcissist serves as the audience. The narcissist is on stage, performing, and needing attention, appreciation, support, praise, reassurance, and encouragement, and the co-narcissist’s role is to provide these things. Co-narcissists are approved of and rewarded when they perform well in their role, but, otherwise, they are corrected and punished...

When these two troubled souls have kids, the kids by extension also become co-narcissistic:

There are three common types of responses by children to the interpersonal problems presented to them by their parents: Identification, Compliance, and Rebellion...

Identification is the imitation of one or both parents, which may be required by parents in order for them to maintain a sense of connection with the child...

Compliance refers to the co-narcissistic adaptation described earlier, wherein the child becomes the approving audience sought by the parent...

Rebellion refers to the state of fighting to not accept the dictates of the parent by behaving in opposition to them...The critical issue here is that the child is unconsciously attempting to not submit to the parent’s definition of him despite his inner compulsion to comply with the parent’s needs. He therefore acts in a selfdefeating manner in order to try to maintain a sense of independence...


Dr. Rappoport goes on to say the the children eventually come to believe that everyone is to some degree a narcissistic, and that all adult relationships have one person acting as the narcissist and the other person acting as the co-narcissistic. If a child is forced to deal with someone who is not narcissistic enough, then that child, who may use Compliance when dealing with a narcissistic, could then turn around and become the narcissist in his/her own adult relationships. But when confronted with a stronger personality, this new adult narcissist may easily slip back into the role of Compliance. What a way to live!

The article doesn't go much further than that, it doesn't say what happens when the co-narcissistic parent leaves and the child is left primarily in the custody of the narcissitic parent, and it doesn't go on to say what eventually happens to the child who fights the narcissism with Rebellion.

Perhaps some of the people here who have a background in psychiatry could enlighten us?

Save the Gosselin 8!

Oh, and what's the difference between the paparazzi and the TLC's camera$, Kate?

That's easy ... one she gets paid for and the other she doesn't.

Kate-go-away said...

Is anyone else seeing the similarities between Gary Coleman of Different Strokes and the Gosselins? His parents made him work, even when he was sick, then took a good portion of his money. What is even more scary is the aftermath. He had to sue them and only received a portion of the money. He outgrew his cuteness and was very angry and troubled for his adult life.

When your own parents don't protect you, who else will? It damages you for life.

I realize he had kidney transplants and the drugs stunted his growth - he also had poor health. The Gosselins are healthy and I am sure will be attractive adults.

The worst part - he attracted what seems to be an opportunist who is now trying to make all she can after his death. I'm afraid, since people tend to gravitate towards what they are use to, the Gosselin children will choose partners who use them as well.

On another note, GMA had on a grandmother (With 11 grandchildren!) who wanted to fulfill her dream of dancing with Tony from DWTS. In the clip they showed Tony with all of his past DWTS partners minus Kate G. The grandmother did way better than Kate and only had 4 hours of rehearsal.

IMHOandFYI said...

The question was raised as to whether Steve had protected "the Royal Famiy" meaning the British Royal Famiy or royal famiies.
Steve Neild's own bio says that he was a member of the New Zealand police. As such he would provide security at events in which there were guests of state. However, that does NOT mean that he was a "bodyguard" for members of any royal family, US presidents, etc., as appears to be claimed. As per the following, local police provide parameter security but they do not act as personal bodyguards.

"Members of The Royal Protection Squad accompanies members of the Royal Family wherever they go throughout the world. However, in relation to the jurisdiction of Close Personal Protection Squads, be it the Royal Protection Squad, the US Secret Service or any other Close Personal Protection Service, jurisdiction in terms of Law Enforcement does not need to apply. These people are only responsible for the close personal protection of their Principal and as you, Ron and Sgt Lobster have stated, the immediate outer area/ring is secured by the local or host countries Law Enforcement Agency and the inner area containing the Principal's own Protection Staff is supported by members of the the host countries equivalent Security Service or Police Force. So, any arrests that have to be made are made by the host."

I know this seems like nit-picking, but I find it annoying when people exagerate their credientials. He was probably a competent cop. But he was not a personal bodyguard and is no James Bond.

air rides. thanks for posting the letter from Margie L. Of course it was VERY complimentary to K8 or it would not have made Kate's blog.

I just loved how Margie explained that K8 wanted the birthday party to be "private" and to keep the papparazzi away. Of course, TLC and K8 had absolutely no qualms about televising those "private moments" to as many people that cared to watch. The paid shills make a mockery out of reality.

Kitty The Dog's Blog said...

I posted lists of advertisers for the trainwreck on the other thread about the show. I contacted the director of advertising for the local auto dealership who advertised during the show. I told him that I am looking for new vehilces for myself, my daughter, my godchildren's parents are looking for a bigger SUV as they are having a new baby and that none of us would be shopping at any of their dealerships because they advertised during Khate + 8. He said he didnt even know who she was and I told him that she exploits her children, etc., he said "Oh yeah, I know exactly who' you're talking ab out now, I cant stand her". He said that he would talk to the owner and he was sorry to lose our business ( I really am looking at Range Rovers) Dont know if it helped but at least he knows that WE care about the kids and can't support businesses who support the exploitation of children. He was very nice and said he appreciated the feedback.

Minka's Tail said...

You know who Kate reminds me of, at least as far as media celebrity goes? Nancy Kerrigan, circa 1994.

Both were moderately famous for a while, but suddenly shot up on the fame scale after being "victimized" (for real in Nancy's case, by Tonya Harding's ex-husband; probably not for real in Kate's case, by "cheating" Jon.)

Both Nancy and Kate were really not media ready, and got bad publicity for seeming snippy and angry. Both tried to expand their roles in the media to remain famous. Nancy tried to sing and do a cartoon voice; Kate tried to dance and host talk shows. As of yet, none of these endeavors panned out.

A year or so later, Nancy's best friend agent, who had recently gotten divorced, announced his love for her. Of course, she had nothing to do with the breakup of the marriage, so they said.

I suspect in a few months we'll hear that the Neilds broke up, not due to him guarding Kate all the time, of course, and then a few months after that, they'll announce their love, not that they were together before then or anything like that.

If Kate and Steve are having an affair, I hope they do get married. Too bad for Gina, but it's better if she can make a clean break. That would more or less end Kate's notoriety, I think, and she'd fade back into near oblivion.

I agree with you totally that there should be security measures in place, esp. since the kids are so friendly to people etc. But.... perhaps there are things already being done, just not known to us. Hopefully so!! Need to protect the kids. It would make sense not to let things such as video monitoring and surveillance be known to the general public.

Remember the episode when Kate was reading a story to all of the children and Cara complained about a hurt leg? Rather then Kate stop filming she sent the nanny to take Cara to the doctor.

In the most recent show Alexis was sick and she left her bf Jamie to tend to Alexis.

Kate sure reveals her priorities doesn't she?
&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

Yes. And that is why TLC loves her so much. THEIR profit and schedules are her priority. They probably call her a 'true professional' for neglecting her children in order to lick their boots.(and collect her paycheck of course.)

concerned Mom said...

I have 5 children---3 are now grown. I have grandchildren. I ran a daycare with up to 12 kids in and out everyday. I teach sunday school children. I work in a public elemenary school, and volunteer in a Christian School.

I have NEVER heard a child say they "wish they would die"! Never. And I have worked with kids from all socioeconomic backgrounds. I have taken care of children whose parents had died; their siblings had cancer; their parents were in a horrific divorce; and never heard this. Most of the kids in traumatic situations were AFRAID to die, and had bad dreams.

We are going to have to publisize this. Where is the clip? We need to make sure that all the talk shows get this. This child needs to be off tv, and get some help. This is tragic.

fidosmommy said...

MOST kids want Mommy or Daddy when they are sick. Not a babysitter.
I know there are some Mommies and Daddies who are not compassionate people, but MOST are.

The fact that one child was left back in the hotel with a babysitter tells me that Kate's priorities are screwed up and/or
Kate is no comfort to a child who is sick.

But we already knew that, didn't we?

* * *

I've long been confident that Nield's so called bodyguard experience was highly overblown (by himself). He doesn't behave in any way, shape or form like a genuine body guard would. Example - never would a true bodyguard hold the purse or other item. Their number one job is to protect the person they are assigned to protect -- and if their hands aren't free because they are carrying a purse or overcoat or shopping bag, that reduces their effectiveness. It's just not done.

He was probably a halfway decent cop, at best. He is an opportunist and is making the most of this chance to earn a ridiculous amount of money for basically babysitting a grown woman and catering to her delusions and need for constant attention. He doesn't give a rip about the kids, and that's why he's such a good fit for Kate. Neither of them have 50 cents worth of common decency.

Yes, I can. They don't give her s**t. And many of her peers DO go to all the fun places that she does...and more so.

Will it ever get better? I fear NOT!

*Joel left on the floor while sick.

*Collin crying and constipated and
ignored him while Kate sat chomping
her gum picking while picking out
bunk beds.

* Kate and Jon left to California so
that Jon could get hair plugs while
all of the children were sick with
a bad cold or the flu.

* Cara had pain in one of her legs and
needed medical attention and Kate
sent Cara with the nanny so that the
filming wouldn't stop.

* Alexis threw up and sent her friend
Jamie to sit with her so that she
could continue on filming.

Kate C and Meredith V might find Kate
absolutely wonderful but do the 8 children?

To think that Kate is a nurse and a mother of 8 kids who pawns her kids off
at the drop of a pin.

Oh wait.....Remember when she sent all 8 children to the mountains of Utah in bitter weather to ski while she stayed
how with Beth to nurse her headache?

A good mother and a good nurse she is not.

She's Such a Phony said...

On the Insider last night - they had a clip of Katie Krieder stating she is a Target and what they meant was that she was snapped coming out of Target with her Kart and Cara along side of her. But the best part was that they said when you use a cart you're usually loaded and all she was doing was pushing the cart with what looked like the handle of either a mop or broom in it and nothing else! She's so harried isn't she? She used the Kart and "mop" as a prop for her close-up for the Papparazzi - the media whore!!

Somewhereinoh said...

I dont get why Kate felt it note worthy to EVEN mention the fact that the kids were sleeping in sleeping bags during their stay at Jon's house. IIRC, in their previous home, the tups beds consisted of single layer mattresses on the floor, Hannah slept on a makeshift bed in the basement, one of the boy tups preferred sleeping on a 'rug' on the floor while staying at Beth's house, and let's not forget that the FLOOR in the laundry room is Kate's preferred location for a sick child.

path said...

About Kate and the Target shopping cart on the Insider last night----I thought they focused more time on the Target logo than on Kate. Seemed like more product placement than an item about Kate.

HW said...

Taken from Kate's blog:

I am Margie L. the owner of Boggy Creek Airboat Rides and Kate used our airboats as a transportation to and from our park to keep the birthday party private and she went out of her way to be sure the paparazzi would not be able to find them. Our captains enjoyed the hour or two that they were able to take the Gosselins to explore the wetlands to show them our local wildlife. As we have said to other various media outlets that have called us for our comments Kate, her children and the crew were a pleasure to work with, and it would be an honor to have their wonderful family again.

This looks to me like a post that was entered to hold up one's contract. It does not sound sincere.
I would take the word of somebody who actually worked with the crew and the family over the owner of the company who has a lot at stake by maintaining a relationship with TLC and Discovery Cove.

Wasn't it Alexis, the "disturber," who slept in the basement, and wasn't there speculation that it actually was Jon?

I on the other hand, am a retired El Ed teacher, have subbed in many El Ed classes, teach Sunday school, have worked in a daycare where we had after school care kids Mady's age and I have heard that phrase more than once.

To another poster who said that their closed captioning didn't pick it up, mine didn't either. However I heard her clearly and distinctly and she said it with not-a-lot of drama but some.

I don't see it as a cry for help, truly. If I did I would shout it believe me.

Tami said...

RE: Kate and Target carts. I commented not long ago that she was pushing a cart with like 3 little bags in it recently. WHO does that?? Why push out a cart for someone to return just for that? The only time I use carts if I have the kids in it and bags because it's not easy to carry out a squirming toddler, hold a 5 year old's hands and carry bags while opening a car door. What's her excuse??

They have lots of security devices. Some things happen instantly and are over with. Intruders are dealt with appropriately. Do you think that information would really be general knowledge?

Monster Mommy said...

Yep- Target is a sponsor of Kate Plus 8. That's why all the mention, and constant trips there. Those big Giga Balls, etc. are products of Target.

On a side note... I don't think Meredith did herself any favors, by agreeing to appear on the show, in support of Katie Kreider. She sounds ill-informed (did not watch), and kind of like a loose cannon gone rogue... From what I've read about her saying "Get a life!"

Does the "Today Show" stand behind such reckless comments, from a washed up TV Host? Maybe it's time for Meredith to hang up those Hillary Clinton pantsuits... If you catch my drift!

Catlover said...

I think when Khate was on DWTS her dance performances seemed as if she were dancing in slow motion,compared to the other dancers. I guess that was her way of having control over the situation.She seems to want to control every aspect of the children and yet could not make a decision to save her life when Steve was trying to get her to answer him about deciding to practice or not. And she also appeared so like a child when she (Khate) and Steve were in the broom closet talking about getting the book signing underway.It seemes Steve has to speak to Khate as though she were a child. Very immature and insecure 35 year old. Her behavior shocked me and I feel Jon's suspicions could be right on the money.Khate and Steve seem to have more than a family friend/bodyguard relationship. There is a certain vibe that I got watching the way those two interacted and how they looked at each other makes me really suspicous.I would not be suprised if they announce Steve and Khate have been in a more than professional relationship.Maybe the tabloid rumors are right Khate let Jon have girlfriends so he would agree to stay in the show and not rock Khates financial boat so to speak. JMO.

No Worry, Beef Curry said...

Did somebody say BROOM CLOSET?

(Re: Kate at the book signing with Steve)

Too easy!

That's where that WITCH belongs... It's no wonder she had such a tough time... escaping the broom closet of doom!

And if Steve grabbed my arm, like he did that poor girl- boy he'd be seeing real STARS.

Yes! How do you know about their specific security anyway? With the alleged paps camped out there I most certainly would expect to hear about it on ROL, TMZ, etc, if an intruder was caught near her home. Goes to show that there are no real paps there if someone is being 'dealt with' and it is not reported as news!

Kate uses a cart at Target because she needs a purse holder.

"Yes, I can. They don't give her s**t. And many of her peers DO go to all the fun places that she does...and more so."

Well I maintain that no one knows exactly what goes on between a child and their peer groups at school. No one is privy to everything said on the playground, etc. Even if someone works at the school in some capacity, it is just pure speculation to always say that one knows all that goes on with the Gosselin kids.

Hungry Journalist said...

@ Catlover...
You may be on to something. Now, go ahead and call me crazy, but go with me here...

It's quite possible that Steve is already legally separated from Gina Neild; and he totes her along on occasion, just for good measure.

In fact, Sandra Bullock lives out here in CA. Yet she filed for divorce in Texas, under "BAS"... Aka her initials backwards. All to keep it under wraps, so to speak. There has been speculation that Steve filed over a year ago in PA... but I think that had been disproved by a solid source?

At any rate... It is possible to file in another state, if you can establish residency OR place of permanent employment. Which in Steve's case, is PA.
