Long-time lurker, first-time poster here.

Like many others, I tuned in to the JK+8 show with much interest and enthusiasm. Here was a woman who seemd to be struggling, like me, to maintain her home and sanity amidst the strains and stresses of child-rearing. I too, have multiples, identical girls actually born on the sextuplets' birthday, May 10. In addition, we have 2 older boys, so when my girls came on the scene we had 4 under 4. Talk about stressful.

I loved the show at first. I remember even saying to my friends, "If Kate lived down the street from me we'd be friends." My, how times have changed.

Now I see a woman who has sold her kids out to the highest bidder. How is it that "normal" to these kids now is having a crew and cameras follow them around? I'm sad and disappointed in a woman who claims to do all for her kids, yet the whole world can see her choices revolve around herself and what will ultimately benefit her.

She is no longer "real" to me. "Real" moms cannot go get their hair and nails done every week. I'm lucky if I get a pedicure 2 or 3 times a year, and you better believe I enjoy every single second of it. I don't believe that it's OWED to me, as Kate seems to view all her freebies.

On Sunday, I will NOT be tuning in. And I hope TLC and the rest of America wises up to the real motives behind this woman's actions: GREED.

And maybe they can start focusing on "real" moms...you know, the ones of us in the trenches loving and sacrificing for our kids and not trying to profit from their cuteness.

Khate Clean Slate? Khate reborn?

Well I always felt it was hard to believe the sperm that created Khate beat out 1,000,000 others.

PatK said...

Well, she's definitely "become a new woman in a matter of months" with her physical makeover!

Clean Slate my eye! This woman wouldn't know a clean slate if it slapped her in the kisser. I'll tell you what "clean slate" I would like to see....her apologizing to her kids and her ex for how she treated them. Her apologizing to Kevin and Jodi and her whole family for throwing them all to the curb and robbing them of knowing those kids. I'd like to see her renounce fame and try to be like a normal person and get a damn job (not being a "star") and live a clean life with no child exploitation.

Then maybe I would buy the Clean Slate Kate bs. Not now. All this show will be is her blaming Jon and throwing him under the bus for things she initiated. She makes my skin crawl and itch!

Save ya'll an hour.
2nd Hour the Kate Defense League pays defense witnesses to say sweet nothings about this mom that sold her children's childhoods to TLC.

Yolanda said...

I'd like to boycott the companies who advertise on the show, but how can I do that if I don't watch the show? Just to clarify, I DO NOT plan on watching the show, but I'm wondering - where can I get a list of the sponsors who advertise on the show?

she is evil said...

Kate's world? How depraved, empty , depressing and all about Kate that must be. Imagine what this troll of a woman must go through to hide the facts that she is uninvolved and unloving with her kids, a total sham of a single mother, and a liar about everything starting with the conception of these 8 tragic children. Hard to imagine anyone loving her but she is so fake and such a closed book that no one knows if she is having an affair with Steve or her 'bff' Jamie, what really happened with her parents/family, and why she wanted out of a marriage she was lucky to have. What sick mind would have so many more kids than they were able to afford or to attend to just for the attention and money? Noooo. Keep me outta Kate's world... Sounds like the loony bin in Hell to me

Please get your Kate fix on YouTube. Do NOT watch TLC and give them a ratings #.

Neither will I, but unfortunately there will be alot even from this very site who will. That is the problem. That will be what keeps her on tv. People who say they don't like her but watch her show anyway...Walk the talk people....

Irene S said...

Per David Zurawic at the Baltimore Sun all ratings are based on watching the show, dvr, tivo, clicking on youtube, rerun for 7 days.

So if you are thinking about watching the exploitation of children wait at least until day 8!

Screeeeeeeech said...

I'm not watching because every time I hear her voice, my blood pressure shoots up! It's like fingrenails scratching a chalkboard. Hearing her voice is hazardous to my health.

konspiracytheory said...

Not watching - with pleasure.

Hippie Chick said...

UGH. Why does TLC keep giving this woman opportunities? It literally sickens me. I really think that DWTS was the beginning of the end for that selfish wench. Summer is a time for your OWN family, fun and vacations. Won't this just be a repeat of what we have already seen on J&K+8? Seriously? What will be so new & exciting about this?
I know I will NOT be watching. I have my own wonderful family and memories to be tending to.
This is going to bomb. No one watches TV in the summer, unless you're a 300+ lb. croc wearing, kool-aid drinking, don't know how to spell, sheeple with no life LOSER! Sorry, but I don't fit into that category! :) I'll be at the beach! I don't want to WATCH someone else be at the beach...I want to live it myself!

Ohio Buckeye said...

Does anyone even CARE anymore?

Seriously.

HOW MANY times can she be a "new Kate"?

How long does it take for the 'newly divorced' to wear off?

Same old same old.

What a joke.

Skewed said...

"Inside Kates' world?"" How on earth (or beyond) could a NORMAL person experience THAT?
Seriously.
You would have to alter your entire (normal) personality and outlook on life.
Bad naming for that show. !

She looks, to me, like a Barbie that the tups got hold of! How does the phrase go? Something like "rode hard and put away wet".

Baaaahh said...

Steve blabbers on and on about how the people closest to Kate betray her.

Wah Wah Wah

How may people has SHE betrayed?

Let us count:

Jon
Beth
Bob
Kevin
Jody
churches that were cancelled on
old boyfriend she cheated on
her mom
her dad
sister(s)
her children
volunteers who helped during baby
years
The many nannies who were fired
Fans who were dissed


And Steve, as soon as she has no more use for you, she will betray you, too! We understand she keeps you around because you probably feed her ego and dote on her, and you are her paid companion. But soon she will tire of you, as well, and she will banish you forever from the queendom.

We "get" that she pays you to say these things and that you benefit financially when you try to improve her image. Why, I can almost see the dollar signs ticking in your head as you go on and on about how poor Kate is mistreated. But one day you will be just another one of those who poor Kate says betrayed her.

Oh, and Steve, has it ever occured to you to wonder WHY so many people betray your poor wittle Katie? Could it be the nasty, ungrateful, selfish attitude...maybe? Hmmm

Seriously? said...

"Inside Kate's World".

A world of delusion. How' that for 'reality'.

Good point, Buckeye! A married couple ceases to be "newlywed" after one year, and are simpy "married". It would make sense for divorced couples to be "newly divorced" for one year and not one day longer.

Stephanie said...

I think Kate looked absurd in the commercials. In the clip of the interview, she looked old, saggy, made-up, and awful. And they tried to whet people's appetite for the show by saying it was new and exciting, only to have Kate mumble in monotone, "It's new, different, exciting." Yep, that sure sounds exciting.

Anyway, I think a lot of people will tune in at first out of morbid curiousity, but her audience will quickly fade. I won't be watching. I think she began losing even some of her sheeple during DWTS, when people with no vested interest in doing so "told on her", and people got a glimpse of how she really is.

I don't want bad things for Kate. I want her to go home, be a mother, get out of the limelight like she keeps saying she wants to, and just go away.

Notme said...

On Sunday there are 4 hrs. of the Gosselins,from 7-11pm,some of the shows are P.G.But I guess children will watch.
NOT ME!

NoUse4Kate said...

Bah! I hate all things Kate! I will definitely not be watching that bitch waste space on my TV. She isn't funny, she isn't cute, she isn't entertaining. But she is a rotten mother, horrible person in every conceivable way, a liar, a manipulator, a con artist and oh...just a BITCH!

May TLC and Kate sink to the bottom of the ocean.

TinaT. said...

I hardly post here, just like to read what people write. But I have some crappy news. My husband is a magazine vender and said out of all the People magazines left over in the area the count was 2. Yes 2! Which means People magazine sell alot w/her on the cover or that the grocery stores must have ran out of toilet paper and customers decided to use the magazines instead.

K8stevorapair said...

I cannot believe old Stevo is getting in on the charade that is Kate. The same old Kate has to blather on and on how hard her life is and now she has a side-kick to denounce people who don't go along with her narcissism. Yeah, Stevo...like we can't $ee 1600 reasons a day why you remain by Kate's side, carrying her purse and looking over her emails. What, Kate doesn't like the words "fake" or "exploit"?
Keep taking the expensive vacations in this economy, while your children complain or you do, Kate. Keep speaking your double speak such as "I am thankful Jon made himself available this time to see the kids"...Oh Lordy Be, you really must think people are stupid.
The only way this show Twist of Kate will work is if Kate shows disdain for the blue-collar worker and she will ...because she cannot act, and she hates to actually work, beneath her. TLC is banking on people tuning in to hate this fake, plastic woman, perhaps the 10% might open their eyes and someone will pronounce Kate DONE.

Since the passage of time is at tlc's and Ms. Krieder's discretion (tups in high chairs and all the other examples cited here). it could be freakin' decades before she's simply "divorced." Oh wait - maybe she was never married? She is a SINGLE mother after all........

Chione said...

I've been out of the loop with regards to the Gosselins for a while...I was so fed up with the monster that is Kate and her pity party that I just started ignoring it. Heck, I didn't even know she was on DWTS, that's how out of the loop I am.

Well, consider me informed again, I guess. I saw the ads on TLC while I was channel hopping and it makes me want to puke. I can't believe that TLC still thinks that they can make people believe Kate's lies. I guess some people will believe anything :(

I think I'll go back to ignoring Kate, and watch a movie instead of this garbage.

Not when it comes to Kate Gosselin, Buckeye. She is the most boring person in the "entertainment" world EVER. Nothing to offer, bad performer, annoying personality. There's a woman on my block with a lot of kids who's a whole lot more interesting than Kate. And she's a better mother, that's for sure.

Payson48 said...

I'll be watching on the Food Network--Next food network star!!!
Can't wait to watch this new season. So tired on katie -just more of the same. She either stands around looking bored or she squeals like a pig. She just replaced Jon with Steve as her gopher boy. She doesn't do "anything" alone. Why with Jon he had to lead through the airports-she couldn't. NOW katie is way out front with gopher boy following behind-thought "bodyguards" always led through the crowds? That's right-NO CROWDS!!! I won't be watching but will visit here to get the comments! Thanks!

Don't forget, that same edition had
an update on Bret Michaels' health (whoever he is) and the Duchess of York's scandal. Those two people could have helped sell the magazine too. I know I picked up the magazine at the library ONLY to read about Sarah. The rest did not interest me in the least.

I'm waiting for the newest edition of People to come out (library again) so I can read the Letters to the Editor about the Kate story.

I think we are going to find out that Kate and Steve have been in a relationship, and probably have been for a while. That's another reason he doesn't talk badly of her.

bonehead said...

I will not be watching K8, Sunday. The children are not that cute or interesting any more. Or are these trips. Who cares they go here and there, what is the purpose of these trips? What to make a freak show of the kids by dressing them alike? to get a reaction from the kids or the public? Keep them off the air! And when her other show comes on I won't be watching that either, there is no advise she could give to anyone, cause she she does not take any herself.

Anonymous said...

Did anyone notice what a hideous dress K8 had on when she was on the TODAY show talking about her upcoming new show?
A normal mother of 8 children does not dress like a slut in front of a TV camera.

Jacobi said...

Hmmm...I'm sensing a subtle message from TLC

6th Birthday
Sextuplets
6/6 air date

Lots of sixes! ;o)

(this is coming from a 6/6/66 birthday girl who always hears "ooh, sign of the devil" when I have to give my birth date.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
You should ask her if she'd be interested in selling her children to TLC so she can be a big star like Kate.

I think the show will flop.I really dont think anyone that stopped watching the show before now have a change of heart about Kate. I think TLC was hoping it was only because of the divorce.They maybe this time will see its about Kate.They didnt have enuff ratings before and I dont think any one has changed their mind about Kate.

Kate's Nemesis said...

I don't know if this was mentioned yet but...

The tup saying "Everything is back to normal" was Joel. He was referring to the basement- post DWTS. He has his play room back now... What a waste of material that dance floor was!

I bet Katie Kreider's special won't show us the "behind the scenes" footage, of her acting like Fatal Attraction (a la Glen Close- lamp on... lamp off). I thought I'd bring back that visual for y'all!

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

if ABC paid for kate kreiger to have a dance floor in her a basement and her and tony practiced a couple of times on it and she had them remove it, what a horrible waste of money, thousands of dollars. look at how much FOOD that would buy and stock a food pantry!

she is despicable!

TexasTwang said...

The Lame Channel can't seem to get any good programming so we get stuck with that train wreck named Kate. Again. I hope it doesn't last that long. But then, I won't be watching it.

* * *

I think ole Steve-O is only in this for the money. And I'm not just referring to the $1600 per day he supposedly receives from TLC right now for his constant presence at Katie Kreider's side. We all know that Steve has the goods on Katie. He is probably hoping to cash in on any money she can generate, but if all else fails, he can also turn to a little friendly blackmail or else he sells his story to the highest bidder, probably complete with videos, tape recordings and photos. He's been around a long time and I bet he's got lots of dirty little secrets tucked away for future use.

22Starz said...

I dont think Steve and katie will ever admit that they had been a couple for years.If kate says she was bonking steve before Jon was out and about it will ruin her story.

Kate needs people to believe that she was home with the kids playing super mom.If she lets go of this lie...then she has nothing to hold on to ...to make her a saint...The hardest working single mom EVER!

The mom who does everything for her 8 OMG 8 kids.

We have the FACTS...and its gonna take people not watching the show to PROOVE it! WHY do you need to watch this show? Cause kates dress is wrong? Or her hair looks like shit? COME ON people...

You are smart enough to know if you dont watch there will be NO ratings and the kids will get the privacy they deserve!
This show will be repeated over and over again...If you HAVE to watch...watch a damn repeat...If you cant...then you can blame yourself for the kids being filmed and you need to stop bitching.

Sorry to be so blunt...but really...its that easy...NO RATINGS will make the show go BYE BYE!!!

Unique look inside her world? How? Everything she does, she makes sure the whole world knows about. What on earth do we NOT know about Kate that we will learn from watching this? When you sell your most private details to People magazine and all the others and go on every talk show that will have you, there is NOTHING LEFT to say is new or "unique."

Please.

Monster Mommy said...

Well, today is the BIG DAY!

The Lakers will be facing off again- against the Celtics, in the NBA game toinght! Same time as Kate's new show. If you want to see real STARS... watch that instead.

Who wants to hear Katie Kreider, blather on and on, about how she "took the kids from the house to the van... the van to the bus stop, from the bus stop, to the van..." and so on? Not me- no sir-ee!

As for Steve... His job description is now "Combats Nasty-Grams so Queenie won't see them first"? What a major demotion... From counter terrorism, to deleting "hater" e-mail from her account? What a joke.

Can't TLC hire an intern for that shit? God forbid, Kate having to read anything negative about herself!

Definitely won't be watching. Don't know that I'll have the TV on at all at 9 PM (EST) but at 10 PM I'll be watching "Army Wives". I have no desire to see a show all about "Me, Me, Me".

@ N.E. Psych (I love your posts BTW... and get a lot out of reading your "take")

It's no big secret, I live in Long Beach so - LAKERS ...LAKERS!!

I just posted a listing on the open thread, of alternative programs we can watch tonight. There are so many great options, besides TLC.

Maybe the Mods will create a forum on that topic!
Feels great to be Kate free! *Giggle*

Charles said...

I saw a commerical for the new and upcoming Kate + 8 where the kids are out of their minds with joy that the crew is back.

The crew and the kids were running and chasing all over the house. What kid wouldn't love that? That doesn't mean a thing. I'll bet the noise drove Kate nuts. Anyway, the beloved crew is back and life is back to normal. Whoopeee...

enoughalready said...

ABSOLUTELY NOT WATCHING and I cant shout it out any louder.

I absolutely cannot stand nor tolerate that Mother (B)rat's squeals and cackles.

TLC has never been more desperate and more pathetic to want to invest in this product. Their desperation is so bad its like a stench you get from a mile away.

@ Yolanda: I'd like to boycott the companies who advertise on the show, but how can I do that if I don't watch the show? Just to clarify, I DO NOT plan on watching the show, but I'm wondering - where can I get a list of the sponsors who advertise on the show?
************

Here's a partial list:

K Mart, which owns Sears, which owns Land's End

Mattel
Skechers (sp?)

Any of the theme parks they visit are comped or paid by tlc for advertising

Any name brand clothing that the kids are wearing (w/logos, etc) are product placement. They used to live in Gymboree and crocs, for example.

Please everyone feel free to add to the list as you become aware of sponsors.

DON'T WATCH!

DontDoIt said...

Inside Kate's World? If the public wants to know what is going on in 'Kate's World' at any given moment, just click on ROL or scan up a recent People magazine while waiting in the check out line. Why waste an hour watching a scripted 'reality show' when People magazine and ROL are tag teaming to provide day to day updates on the life that is Kate Kreider.

Just My Few Canadian Cents said...

Not watching either.
Because by doing so I'd be rewarding TLC execs for their morally and ethically bankrupt programming and padding their wallets by shamelessly exploiting eight children.
And I'm not watching because Kate doesn't deserve the attention or any of the luxuries and freebies she gets. She hasn't done anything for society - aside from providing two years of nursing care - and she just uses the show to get what she wants. I'd rather see a more deserving person (people) get all the breaks and freebies she gets. And lastly, the children don't deserve to have their privacy violated so egregiously by the very people who are supposed to be protecting and nurturing them.
The Gosselin saga and the reality tv genre in which they are a part, in my opinion, is a manifestation of everything that is wrong with North American culture these days. Rewarding greed, hypocracy, laziness, consumerism and materialism, and bad behaviour.
I will watch a Gosselin on television, when one step forwards and actually does something intelligent, magnamious, or remarkably generous.

Man, that Kate Coyne strikes me as a bigger beee-otch than Kate G!!

She looks like the girl in high school who beat everybody up for looking at her wrong. I'll bet she was a huge bully. She has this really mean, negative aura about her.

I watched...and now I feel icky!

She is so...fake! Yuck!

Sam said...

WOW, TLC has some balls going up against NBA finals, Stanley Cup Finals, MTV Movie Awards and guess what we didn't watch in my household. I hope TLC goes belly up throwing more money away on this useless woman, you have to be brain dead to watch her, she's just so obvious and I really think she believes her own lies.

Thank You Kitty for putting up that list, I just wrote a nasty email to Angel Soft informing them that I will no longer purchase that brand even though it's my favorite brand of toilet paper because they sponsor a station that endorses child exploitation.

We also just switched to Dish Network and I already wrote for instructions on blocking out TLC from our cable box.

Jeez said...

I am just astonished that Tlc thinks she has anything to offer. No marriage advice-hers didn't go so well. No child rearing advice-her kids are not that well behaved. No talent that she has shown-can't dance and has not acted in anything at all. If I want to watch kids on vaccation-I'd rather watch mine. The kids are cute-but so are mine.

Not to be critical, but buy some mom clothes and let the kids spend some of their money to buy a real chair for the kitchen table. I hear the white plastic ones are cheap.

patchydel said...

(Oops, I have the same name and nickname as maddy and used that name in my first post, I just realized my comment might not be published so sorry to the admins if this is a double post for you guys!)


First time poster but I lurked a bit. Watched the first couple of minutes and there's nothing "new" about her and it followed the same program as the last episodes

1) Blame Jon. First thing they show is that sign he put up saying TLC is not allowed in there. Kate says she told the kids while she was driving and the kids had an outburst about it (happy or not they she didn't say)

2) I'm gonna guess the kids' outburst was negative. They show the filming crew coming in to surprise them. Kids start cheering. Of course loyal fans are going to think that Kate was doing the right thing filming cause the kids were happy. But honestly, the way the crew started running with the kids and playing with them and giving them piggy backs, I'm going to guess the kids were happy because there were people in the house who actually played with them rather than barking orders at them and calling it "helping out Mommy"

3) Sextuplets are turning six. Jon had them for their actual birthday and Kate was going to get them for that weekend. Again, Jon is made to look bad because you know that Kate is going to surprise the kids with a trip and all the Jon gave them was a party with "little cupcakes and things" and said that the kids came home smacking gum. She says they she guesses looked like they had fun but (most importantly) SHE didn't like it. Personally I would've prefered private time with my dad, eat sweets and play like a kid.

The rest is the trip. All I saw was Kate talking about she's a pro at packing now (but TLC didn't do a great job hiding the girl packing next to her). Couldn't stand her voice anymore and from the commercials, it looked like she was going to be doing a lot more squealing when the camera isn't at her face. Attention seeking as usual.

They showed some old episodes before this and my sister who never really watched the show much commented that the kids were hugging and laughing with Jon and he was playing with them by surprising them but they'd look down when Kate was talking to them.

Jeepers, Creepers Katie Kreiger is a Kreeper... said...

when kate was sobbing in the back of the limo and steve speaks! about canceling the dancing practice that morning and postponing it till the afternoon.
the camera got closer to er mani and is this the new style? french tips then a hortizonal line of polish and then clear back to the cuticle? it makes you fingernails look dirty! like she hadn't had a mani in a lon time.
what i meant to say about jamie and her kids, i know jamie went but if her kids also went tey should of been allowed to go to things too. why hurt innocent children? why dump her sick child on a BFF and not allow her children to go to D.C? i remember them saying at a mall that a child was sick so either that was aaden or alexis.
someone on perez hilton posted something really funny about the white tank top that ms. kreiger had on the people family shoot.

what's the deal with the white tank? planning on changing teams soon, uhmmmm?

i busted out laughing.

She is despicable!

aka I wish Jon would drink lite beer and lukebandit

Thank you so much for the list of products. I know it wasn't easy to collect.
With the exception of my Dell computer, which I can't afford to replace, everything else is out of my house with an email to the manufacturer explaining why.
By the way, we watched the ball game. We're Lakers fans!

I saw a commerical for the new and upcoming Kate + 8 where the kids are out of their minds with joy that the crew is back.
...........................
I find this so sad. Do the poor children have no other people in their life but paid help and camera operators on salary? What an odd existence for them.

Fake Kate said...

I agree about with posters opinion about Kate Coyne. She just has a HARSH look about her. Geez

Dorothy said...

yes, I watched the show. I am a Liberal who believes in second chances. K8 has had hers and more. It was an hour of high-pitched squeals and screams from Kate and/or the tups. I watched until the end foregoing my fav Top Chef. I clicked away with a headache and a profound dislike and distaste for K8. Thanks for the list of sponsors, some of whom I already boycott. BTW, I noticed the kids were back in sandals or velcro fastener shoes. What happened to the lace sneaks the boys wore in the People cover? I agree with the assessment of Steve. Now,a loser with a capital L.

EllaK said...

After she got the hair extensions she made the comment that people would mistake her for one of Tiger Woods' bimbos. I thought she meant that in a bad way, but I guess I misunderstood because she sure perfected the look.

Kitty The Dog's Blog said...

I tried to be as specific as possible with the list in case you guys use or wanted to try some of the products. I wanted to try the Kleenex hand towels, but not now! Ill use paper towels instead! Im sending letters to the local advertisers. And I am going to notify my bank - Chase, that I am very upset. I dont know that it will do any good but it will make me feel better.

For anyone who watched - am I crazy or did she say "clustration"? "I cant remember when Ive had such a clustration in my kitchen". And if Jamie has been her bff for the past 9 years, who havent we seen her before?

lidandan said...

The lists of advertisers are the same ones that I see on several stations and on other TLC shows (not just Kate) and might have just purchased ad space with discovery and don't know when their spots will air.

There are a few ACTUAL sponsors of just the show which you can see by the fact that they say "This kate plus 8 is brought to you by" or Kate mentions them

The one sponsor I saw in a spot like that was Intel. The processor manufacturer.

And the other obvious one is Sea World / Discovery Cove.


I will confess I watched a portion of the show when I was "channel surfing" and it was Kate explaining her poor dancing. She blamed it on:
-her perfectionism
-going blank when on the stage
-stress
-nerves
-exhaustion
she swears she danced perfect in rehearsal and she was "angry" that she couldn't dance once the show went live.

Wow. I can't even..

Ginger said...

Two things:

#1 It was appalling that Kate complained about having to find out about the custody issue on the internet. She does this type of thing to Jon ALL THE TIME and he had to learn his kids were in Florida thru the internet. She dishes this crap out but can't take it.

#2 Kate will never have a successful relationship ever again until she starts asking herself if she would be happy married to herself. She needs to understand what it is like to be married to her. Would she be happy with someone who says the stupid things she says, complains about the things she complains about, nags as much as she nags, and walks around with a scowl plastered on their face? No. She wouldn't.

ok....three things :

#3 The way she congratulates women for not being married and encourages them to keep it that way is beyond juvenile. It is not cute. It is not endearing. It is immature and ignorant. She needs to stop that. Is she trying to start a trend of women choosing to stay single because she's a failure at relationships and wants everybody else to be like her?

One more thing...

Mady needs some serious help. I teach 3rd and 4th grade and I have never had a female child in all my 14 years who has the issues Mady has. I'll admit I've had a few boys who acted like this, but they were from a boys group home and they did not live with their parents. Mady exhibits behavior that is seen from the children in our school who are in the emotionally handicapped classes.

CT MOM said...

Kate+8 is back on TLC? This makes me happy I cancelled cable altogether!!

LOVE that High Fructose Corn Syrup is a sponsor.... tee hee! Little Miss "OMG MY KIDS HAVE NEVER TASTED A DORITO" Khate.... hypocrite much? LOLOL!!

Debbie said...

I too used to feel the same way as Ellen4JC...if Kate lived on my street we'd be friend's. All the other crap that went on this past year didn't bother me. What stand's out so clearly now,is that she is NOT A REAL MOM. Real Mom's don't where short skirt's & high heel shoe's and get their hair & nail's done every week. I watched the show last night...it made me sick how Kate dressed walking through the airport with high heels & skirt...if she wasn't walking with 8 kid's...people would have thought she was a hooker! When I go place's with my kid's, I alway's dress down and wear sneaker's ready to have fun with my kid's. If I dressed liked Kate my kid's wouldn't want to be seen with me, they would be too embarrassed! The only time I dress up is when I'm going out with my husband.
I have a child that has autism, I would love to be able to take my child to Discovery Cove and swim with the dolphin's, but can't afford it. It was nice that Discovery Cove gave Kate & her 8 kids a free trip...but what about the rest of us! There's alot of REAL MOM'S out here that work hard taking care of their children, that really deserve something nice to come their way...like free trip's!

IDModo said...

Anonymous- I think it's great that the kids sleep on sleeping bags at Jon's! It's kind of an adventure away from the McMansion and probably the only relatively normal thing the kids get to do.They are in their Dad's place where their controlling hag of a mother has no say or influence over what happens.And it does them good to have simple pleasures like ice cream and gum with a parent that obviously loves them.

The alternative is for them to be at home with the spectre of Kate looming over everything they do with their Dad, and unhappy memories of scenes the parents have caused in the fight for their love.

Minnesota Mamma said...

I was flipping around and saw maybe 15 minutes (not consecutively) of this joke of a show. Can you say "damage control?" TLC is trying their damndest to create something out of this nothing named Kate Gosselin. Talk about trying to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear!

I am disgusted by the so-called legitimate reporters they were interviewing, ie Meredith Viera. What a pack of lies. Now we're supposed to pity her because she's struggling with the "choices of every working mother" (paraphrasing) aka LOVING MY CAREER (her words) and wanting to be home (yeah right). WHAT CAREER??? What a joke. I've never wanted any "celebrity" (yeah that's what they called her- I could just puke) to go away more than I want her to go away!!

OH they also were saying that (paraphrasing) no-one has ever come on the scene bigger or faster than KG. How can they explain that most of America has no idea who she is or why she's "famous?"

I can't stand this woman, but frankly I hate the machine that is behind her more... the machine that creates celebrity out of thin air and expects the rest of us to go along with it. Celebrity for no reason... no talent... no personality.

PS I never knew People magazine was such a trash rag... will never buy another issue for the rest of my life!

Kate Coyne is so far up Kate's butt it is amazing that she can breath. I am so disappointed in Meridith Viera- I thought she saw through Kate. Another journalist thinking Kate is great. Give me a break!!!!


Those people aren't journalists, they're media whores whose job is to promote whoever they're paid to promote, in return for which they become more watched and famous themselves. It's a round-robin profit-generating machine. There is virtually no more true journalism today, certainly not on television. Nobody on that show was freely expressing their heartfelt feelings. It was an infomercial, paid for by TLC, and everyone "interviewed" was either scripted or heavily coached as to what to say, and then further edited by TLC.

Joanne said...

Why are some of you watching? We will never get rid of this woman if you keep tuning in.

Ali B said...

I just can not wait for the day to come when these kids are not on TV anymore. It still really saddens me that in the eyes of those kids, a "normal life" is supposd to be constantly followed by cameras and filmed. I can not begin to imagine the brain washing job that Kate must put the little ones through whenever she happens to be home! I wonder if the kids assume other children live this way or are they led to believe that they are special?

Marianne said...

Re: Kitty's list of sponsors...

I believe I read on this blog at some point that companies don't have any control over which shows their commercials are aired on. So, if that is true, it wouldn't make sense to boycot those companies simply because their ads ran during a Kate+8 episode.

Feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

wpa said...

Kate's best friend was interviewed on camera for the second hour about how good Kate is as a mom, doing it all by herself. I hope she got paid for her service, unlike her brother and sister-in-law, who baby-sat for free all those early years.

Man, that Kate Coyne strikes me as a bigger beee-otch than Kate G!!

She looks like the girl in high school who beat everybody up for looking at her wrong. I'll bet she was a huge bully. She has this really mean, negative aura about her.

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

And whodathunk there could BE a bigger bitch than Khate????

Kate Coyne is like a protective Mama Bear having a 'roid rage. Very scary.

If KC is the best Khate can scrape up to plead her case to the public........well, bottom of the barrel, meet Khate.

I will watch a Gosselin on television, when one step forwards and actually does something intelligent, magnamious, or remarkably generous.

******

Where have you been?

Haven't you heard of the generosity of the Gosselins? Kate gave away her OCC pink splattered scooter, she gave away donated toys and her DVD to the children at St. Jude's, and she did a yard sale of the stuff people gave her and made $1,100 off of it. She gave that to charity with much flourish and great pride. I don't remember if that was the same time she tried to give away Mady and Cara's Christmas ballet shoe ornaments that Grandpa Gosselin had given them - because they made "dustilies".

Hey, isn't that enough generosity?
What more could a struggling mother of 8 be expected to do?

Snark.

Merrilee said...

Steve, the body guard, made a commercial for the upcoming season. He has sullied his own reputation by doing so. He had a British accent, a surprise to me, but he looked and sounded ignorant! What a sham!

Vanessa said...

Didn't watch, but I'm getting the feeling it was MORE damage control/propaganda. What I don't get is WHY are they focusing on the last year ONLY? That butt kisser Merideth could have asked more in depth questions the other day.

Why not do an expose from the VERY BEGINNING??!! Like many of you have stated, how the hell can that boobyguard claim to know WHO DID WHAT TO WHOM? Why don't they line up all the volunteers, helpers, "friends", companies etc. and ask for THEIR version of how things went? They are trying to erase everything that she's done prior to the "Divorce/Highest Ratings Episode". They don't talk about it, they don't print anything about it, they make sure that all the softball interviewers never question her about her "past". It's just backfiring, all this image remaking, remarketing, re-interviewing, it's just making more and more people hate her. She's NOT a good liar because she can't keep the lies straight. She's not good at spinning the truth, she's too defensive, people see right through it. Maybe TLC should just admit they have a "winner" with Kate because of the "hate" (yes, HATE) people have towards her. The newbies are just getting a taste of it now.

HW said...

Meredith Viera actually appeared on Kate's show last night - talking about how horrible it was that Kate got so much negative attention for changing her hair.

I know that by revealing this, I am confessing that I watched. Yes. Yes I watched a couple of minutes. But now we know to boycott the Today Show and especially Meredith. I used to think she was so intelligent.....

nolovelost said...

flipped through the stations bored in bed late last night and flipped right on by her... Literally, the brief site of her back on that show make my stomach sick. I don't think I CAN (LITERALLY) watch her. not even that i just don't want to, i have a physical reaction i dislike her so much.. wow.

JoyinVirginia said...

For Kitty the Dog, you said your husband saw thru K8 long time ago. Gotta share my DH reaction to J&K+8. It must have been 2007, older DD came home from college, "Mom,Dad you have to watch this show, it has the cutest little kids and their parents, they have twins and sextuplets. You will love it!"

So the show came on, DD told DH and me to come watch with her. J&K were doing couch confessional. It was only about 2 or 3 minutes, if that long, when DH could not stand it anymore. He was mystified as to why in the world J would sit there and let K talk so disrespectfully to him. DD assured us this was how they usually talked to/about each other. DH, who usually gives anything a try, told DD to turn it off and also told her that whenever she got married, to remember to never talk to her husband that way.

DD was a big fan at that time, and tried to explain away the nasty comments - "they are always like that." DH did not buy it, he told us then that K must hate J. DH told me if I had ever talked to him like K talked to J, that he would have left right that minute and never come back.

Anyway, the real-life friends and acquaintances I know who used to like J&K mostly stopped watching around the divorce time, and all thought the show should have stopped then. None of them have any interest in a show with just Ms. Kreider with or without the not-so-cute-anymore kids

_________________________________

My decision was also to watch the show. Kate's screaming and cackeling made me turn it away, though. I would pop in and out now and then, but I wasn't interested enough to stay. Hanna spent a great deal of the time sulking and pouting. Nothing has changed. Perhaps Kate's DWTS has made her much less popular. But BM is still as infatuated as ever, so who knows.

Laurie said...

well folks ...it was brutal! Not only did Steve get a fair amount of camera time, he bickered with Kate much like Jon used to....
Jaimie even got talk time and she explained that they had been friends since the twins were born. I found the entire epi to be akin to sitting in a court room. She was very careful (most of the time) to clarify her comments so that they could not be taken the wrong way.
My favourite part was how they date stamped the month and time of each new scene....I guess they didnt like our questioning of how the edit room worked. It would have been nice to know if May 2pm was actually filmed after May 1pm......the way that they created the subtitles really didnt help decipher what happened in order.

Sidney said...

Kate has absolutely no social graces. She is loud and screams a lot. Mady and Hannah are much the same way, and the hiatus didn't improve them one bit.

In the last few years many viewers watched just to see what she would say next to Jon and how she would embarrass and castrate him.

Without that to watch, it is pretty boring.

Vanessa said...

fidosmommy,
Great post about her "generosity". I see a lot of new posters here, I think a friendly reminder of some of her past "incidents" is in order. I have gone through a lot of the older posts from WAAAYYY before this Circus REALLY came to town. Very enlightening, people had her number a long time ago.

qtrfan said...

I watched too. However, I couldn't get through the whole thing like most of you. It was so pathetic and sad for those kids. It is almost like they live in the book 1984 - where the thought police go back and change history to whatever Kate feels it should be. The kids will never know what the truth is.

One snarky thing I have to say, is Steve's voice does not fit his physical appearance. He comes across girly and whiny - sort of like fingernails on a chalkboard.

Tyra said...

If Kate does it all by herself like Jamie says she does, why is she there? Jamie...I hate to tell you this but you are only there to be one of Kate's helpers. The day you quit helping Kate is the day she throws you under the bus just like she has the rest of them.

Janice in NC said...

Hi, I haven't posted here in ages. I haven't watched this family at all this last season. I didn't watch either show last night, as I refuse to admit that kHATE exists. When she said to Tony, on Dancing with the Stars, that "90% of my "fans" hate me", I realized that she is playing everyone. She KNOWS she's in the tabloids because she is despised. Like another Heidi and Spencer! Does she care, no, because it's making her millions. Until all of us "haters" stop watching her shows, she will continue to get publicity and ratings and exploit her kids. Ratings tell advertisers how many people are watching a show, not WHY they are watching. So if kHATE gets 10% Baby Mamas and 90% "haters" watching her show and she gets high ratings, it's due to the Haters watching who want her stopped. The only way to possibly put a stop to this crazy woman is to ignore her, don't watch her shows. When we 90% haters drop her, her ratings will die. Please don't watch! I had a hard time not watching at first, but I honestly don't think twice about her or her shows. She's an idiot. Let her 10% of fans keep her a** afloat....it won't happen! Sorry for being so wordy!

Steve's voice does not match his apperance. I know some people have commented about him being english, I'm english and I have never heard an accent like that from my neck of the woods. I think is a Kiwi. Either way i found it very weird how much air time he got (yes I did watch. The kids were cute although it seemed very staged, it was almost like every criticism she ever had, was answered/repaired somehow. I did get bored and kept flicking over to re-runs of greys anantomy.

Dissapointed with Meredith Veira though.

Kitty The Dog's Blog said...

There were times where the announcer said "this portion of Kate + 8 is brought to you by...." two that I remember were Intel and Johnsons products. Even if they cant control which shows their advertisements appear in, they are still supporting TLC.

Someone asked where this Jamie is her best friend came from - Kate told the kids someone they LOVED was coming for a visit and she said that Jamie had been her best fried for 9 years.

Alexis threw up in the shuttle and kate had it in a ziploc baggie for all to see.

She wore a mini and hooker heels to travel with 8 children

She went to get the kids lunch wearing what appeared to be a black and gold lamee ? bikini and said she had low blood sugar, she was there with seven kids (alexis was sick) and had no help and "this is not going to be good, Im just warning you".

The kids speak more clearly than I remember, but when she talks about something they said during her interview, she uses a baby voice.

They showed only positive people yelling at her - "Kate I love you and I love the babies", etc.

She admitted she did not put on the party, she put in requests and the stuff magically appeared and that Discovery Cove asked them to come

She said they had to get to the bday party site by airboat so it would be free from paps and she wanted her kids to have a life free of paps. When paps are around it changes how they do things and that paps are alerted by "certain ones" - eyebrows raised

She said SHE LET John have the kids for part of their birthday (A standard possession order would stipulate this anyway) and that they SEEMED to have a good time and that they came back CHEWING BIG WADS OF GUM! I loved that part.

Mady was upset the tups got three parties. Kate said they were born early so it was still their b-day and Mady pointed out that she and Cara were born early too. Mady did interviews by herself and she is growing up - I must say, I think she is going to be a smart, beautiful young lady.

This cant go on. It is so unhealthy. Iam not watching anymore and I am boycotting the products I listed. If you guys can think of anything else I can do, let me know. I was in court and had to testify on my child advocacy case today, so Im FIRED UP!

Just one more big fat LIE. Remember Katie Kreider did say, "MINE, ALL MINE" when she motioned to the estate. Guess she wasn't lying. Those kids will have nothing as she's going to make sure come hell or high water to spend it all on HER ALL HER.
I didn't watch, TLC is verboten in this house. Thanks for the list of TLC advertisers. If a company supports TLC then I am against them period. TLC also has that garbage tots and tiaras so, vile.

Mystical said...

Kate's a Failure.....let's review:

Latest Book = Flop

Paula Deen's Pilot = Fail Fired because Kate was too controversial(yeah sure). She was totally unqualifed.

Dancing With The Stars = Fail. Kate made a fool out of herself & many more people saw her for the nasty, self-absorbed, selfish, bossy person she is.

Mother = Fail. She is using her children to earn a living for HERSELF! She cannot & has not EVER been a loving hands-on mother for those kids. Originally Jon did it all and now nannies and whomever is willing to step-in for the job does it all. NOT KATE!

Kate is a dictatorial control freak, whom I find comtemptable. The woman oozes with nastiness & is nothing but a lazy fame seeker. Poor kids.

You're kidding, right?

Anyone who has any kind of camera time will tell you that you can get major butterflies in your stomach before your scene, but when the cameras are rolling, you kick it into gear. If there is physical movement involved (dancing, ice skating, for example) your hours of training take over and your body just does what it's supposed to do. You concentrate, but you also flow
into movement.

My job involves public speaking. I am terrified, especially when I
don't know the people in the audience. The more scared I am the better I do because the adrenelin kicks in and I AM PREPARED. I have spent hours getting my thoughts together, I am familiar with the subject and I have practiced my talk. In fact, I don't use notes because I have spent so much time preparing. So, scared as I am each and every time,
it is no excuse for making a fool of myself.

Kate, the answer is simple. Practice, practice, practice.

go away gosselins said...

I would much rather watch re-runs of a much more entertaining OCD sufferer: Monk!

I also really enjoyed the season opener of "Drop Dead Diva"---Paula Abudul was on! Yea! A real reality star.

I do not miss the Gosselins. I think it is a tragedy to watch, so I can not do it. Kate is just a sad, sorry pitiful woman, who is in for a big fall....I can not watch as she throws her kids off the cliff, as she did her parents, her husband and marriage, her friendships...and eventually, she too will jump off that cliff into oblivion. It is a horrific modern day tragedy unfolding before our eyes. I refuse to contribute to the downfall; especially when there is many other things to watch, or do!

go away gosselins said...

Ah, so Steve had a little slip of the tongue and admitted that they are an "us"?! On the show he said, "Neild agreed that he's seen a difference in the way Gosselin behaves in public.

"Slowly but surely, she's now appreciating the fact that these people -- the vast, vast majority of them -- are fans and not against us," he said.

Us. He is a part of the family. It is his story too. How precious.

Steve and Kate plus 8 while Gina and Jon are off the plate!

I didn't watch, I read about it:

watchdog said...

Of course loyal fans are going to think that Kate was doing the right thing filming cause the kids were happy.

The tups may have been happy, but Mady was clearly not. She was sulking behind the door holding a doll. Cara was just M.I.A. completely.

the camera got closer to er mani and is this the new style? french tips then a hortizonal line of polish and then clear back to the cuticle? it makes you fingernails look dirty!

I wondered about that! Ick!

For anyone who watched - am I crazy or did she say "clustration"? "I cant remember when Ive had such a clustration in my kitchen".

She distinctly said "clustration." How horrendously horrendousish.

And if Jamie has been her bff for the past 9 years, who havent we seen her before?

We saw her on the basement reorganization last year. She was the one who put all those photos of the Gosselin family on her Facebook page.

Steve, the body guard, made a commercial for the upcoming season. He has sullied his own reputation by doing so. He had a British accent, a surprise to me, but he looked and sounded ignorant!

Yes, Kiwi (New Zealand), not British. When they were at the book signing on the way in Kate kept saying there weren't many people there. Is that why she was sobbing in the holding room and had to be coaxed out by Steve? Because no one was there?

I wonder how much they paid those girls to gush over how much they love Kate and the kids. One said she especially liked the little boy with the glasses. "Is that Aaden?" You'd think such a big Gosselin fan would have known that.

Really?? What is kate's fascination of things that come out of her children? Pictures of poop in potties, baggies of vomit. Somehow I don't want to look in any memory boxes she may have for the children.

Now they are trying to attach the word "icon" to Frock. I got news, icons pull in more 3 million viewers on their first special entitled inside their world and don't have trouble staying awake after they just heard the news they were being sued for custody.

SafetyTrain said...

That was the biggest piece of propaganda I've ever seen. A little desperate TLC? The excuses - Kate stunk on DWTS because she was tired or she froze (but she did her routines perfectly in rehearsal), her LA book signing bombed because it wasn't well advertised, her bad attitude is from people misunderstanding her, etc. etc. etc. They tried to explain away every single reason why people supposedly hate her. What they failed to address though is the moments on the old show that led people to feel this way about her. They think we're making this "hatred" up. TLC and Kate were the ones who started it all by putting Kate's atrocious behavior on display. She was mean to her kids, mean to her helpers, and mean to Jon on the old show. Now they turn around acting like we're the crazy ones and Kate is the sane one? Its too late TLC, people have already caught on to her. And its interesting that they're not running any of the old shows isn't it?

And what IS up with Kate Coyne? A little too creepily defensive of her heroine? Does she keep a picture of Kate under her pillow at night and kiss it when she wakes up?

Suzanne said...

I watched the last segment; didn't want to but was stuck in a hospital waiting room and thats what was on (making everyone sicker I am sure). Heres what you missed :
Kate - "my life is so hard and no one understands me"
Steve - "Kates life is so hard and everyone has turned on her"
People mag idiot - "Kates life is so hard and I don't understand all the negativity"
Jamie - "Kates life is so hard and if you just got to know her you would love her"
Meredith Viera - "Kates life is so hard and women should be supporting her rather than attacking her"
Then a bunch more tortured faces, sighing and whining from her highness. Such a load of pure BS!

Since the little kids just turned 6 and Kate seems so narcissistic, please read all of this and decide for yourself. The traits are at the end. Seems like the children are being raised by an emotionally stunted six year old themselves, eh?
http://www.halcyon.com/jmashmun/npd/six.html

Having a sick child can also be a way for the narcissistic mother to get the sympathetic attention of authority figures, such as doctors and teachers.

Oh, the stories I could tell you. Please pray for these children. Please be more understanding about Jon, he doesn't even know what hit him, he just reacts to it...as the kids will do.
I despise the supply sources (enablers) such as TLC, Meredith V, Kate Coyne of People, Monet of Insider, etc. that use this woman for ratings and further enabling her to do further damage on her children. I despise you, Steve Neild, for lining your pockets and feeding that narcissism and keeping that narcissism in check for your clients, TLC.

That was in the back of the limo with Steve when she had found out about the custody, and she said I just want to sleep and laid her back. Steve was saying I just need you to stay awake and tell me what you want to do and then he canceled the dance rehearsal.

Sue said...

I cannot stand her even a single second. I recorded and fast-forwarded the whole inside of Kate episode in a minute. I was able to watch the first episode about the kids turning 6, because the sextuplets are still innocent and adorable. I think TLC is overestimating her. Is she the star or the team, altogether as a family, is the star? She is the least favorite person of her family in my opinion. Without the kids, she would be absolutely nobody. I don't like to sound mean, but I really wish everything she does fail. Even if she fails in TV or books, the kids aren't gonna starve. We all know that she's doing it for her own luxury and pleasure, not for the kids.

@Marianne, sorry to come off sounding snarky, I really don't know & was asking in hopes to gain an answer, so sorry about that.

@Suzanne, it would be nice if kate got that many people have hard lives & that kate made hers what it is. No one put a gun to her head & forced her to have 8 kids or to shop a tape of them around to cable stations. kate has made her life what it is & the moment it's not exactly what she wants she drones on & on about it, trying to bully the world to believe what she wants them to believe & has a few paid chums silly enough to try & help her do that. Unfortunately for them most of the people are going to believe what they observe, not what a bunch of hired goon's tell them.

And this was the day she was on The Today Show plugging her new book. Funny how she managed to find brain power and stay awake to be in front of the cameras, but couldn't stay awake for dance rehearsal.

This is classic Kate, though.

LA Book Signing said...

What was with the hissy fit / diva moment she had at the book signing in LA because there weren't enough sheeple there? Did Steve actually have to make her come out and participate? Seemed to me she wanted to cancel and leave because she was embarrassed at the low turnout. Screw the people who showed up, but there wasn't enough of a crowd to feed her ginormous ego so it wasn't worth her time.

I think Steve actually made her get out there and sign books and wasn't going to let her cancel. Did you get that impression?

Sam said...

I got an automatic response from Geico stating that they don't take sides and are only interested in getting their name out there onto as many venues as possible. That's OK, they don't have any morals, I do and I know where to buy my insurance in October and I will be sure to get the word out about them.

Why are they in such a hurry to post her ratings? And they consider 3.4 Mil good? According to who??? Isn't this CRAP when it's a monthly special now?? I wonder if the numbers are not adding up, they have to shoot and reshoot alot of film on
location(s) to produce 1 of these specials. Production costs exceeding revenue generated, keep going Kate, run TLC into the toilet.

Ohio Buckeye said...

How about "What's Inside Kate's Soul"?

Fire and ash
Shards of glass
Barbed wire and blood
Dry, thorned shrub
Ego and delusion
Emotional confusion
Chaos and greed
Unfillable need.

THIS is the best TLC could come up with for their flagship mom?

Wow. Just wow. Talk about out of touch with their viewers.

Somewhere in Pennsylvania, a psych unit awaits Kate.

And whatever TLC genii that continue to promote this pathetic excuse for a person, muchless MOM.

Bennie_Girl said...

These women "journalists" on the show just don't get it. People don't think poorly of Kate because she has to be away from her kids to work. A lot of moms do it and that's not necessarily a bad thing.

People are disgusted with Kate because:
(1) the kids are working too...even if it is "normal" life, that is a lot of stress on the kids (hint, hint Meredith: Angelina Jolie might be away from her children to film a movie, but when she is home, she is pretty secluded and tries to shield her children from prying public eye).
(2) I've never heard a Hollywood mother talking about how she has to do it all alone (yes, I'm including the divorced ones here). They all admit that they have help, such as nannies, cooks, maids, so that they can have these demanding jobs and still be good parents.
(3) Kate has always said she isn't a celebrity and it's all for her kids. Just admit that part of it is for you Kate. There are other options for employment she could have pursued outside of the public eye. Again, that is her choice, but she should at least admit that some of her decisions are for her. Be honest!(ps - that doesn't necessarily make someone a bad mother).

I thought when I watched this (ok, I didn't mean to, but I couldn't help myself that it would be Kate's comments that would totally get on my nerves and disgust me. They did to a certain extent, but she didn't say anything she hasn't really said before. The film of the "journalists" was really the most disturbing. Kate Coyne scared the heck out of me. She was mean, ugly, confrontational, and a little scary in her "analysis".

@Can'tSeeSheep: THANK YOU!!! :-)

I loved your point about K8G's apparent fascination about her kids' bodily excretions. Seriously, WHAT is that about?

And, though I didn't watch so can't say for sure, I'm getting the impression from reading comments that the bag o'barf was more about how HARD things are for K8G, having to endure things like vomiting children (say it with me now: ON HER OWN). What about poor Alexis, who, though nauseous, has to go ahead with the plan to have fun on camera? The show must go on, even when you are only 6 and nauseated.

Makes ME nauseated just thinking about it. Poor kid.

lalaland said...

Why does she care if Jon gives her kids gum when she is seen chewing in constantly! For ex., in the elevator with the producer at the book signing on this episode (saw it on YouTube) she is chomping away.

maggie said...

Does anyone remember the comment Kate made during one of her many interviews during the DWTS time when she said that she would love nothing better than to stay home and bake cookies if she didn't have to make a living.

The reason is at the very end of hour of the Kate's World episode she said," At the same time, it is so weird cuz I belong doing..., I love my career, I love being home. In my thinking,I am soo torn. I am so split. You love being home but you love your job. It is the balance of two is what makes your world work.

My question is to everyone is: Does these comments conflict and prove what a liar she is when she said she would love nothing better than to be a full-time mom and stay home and bake cookies? Again, can someone point me to that interview. Thanks.

Also, another point when she said, "I was talking to Tony and said it was really good being at home cooking my kids meals and TAKING THAT TIME AND BEING HERE. My kids notice. It makes them happy. It makes me happy." That struck me as so strange.

She was glad she TOOK THAT TIME TO BE WITH HER KIDS. Is it just me or is that weird to say as a mother that she was glad she took that time to cooks meals for her kids. Spending time with your kids is a given. It is not something you "take that time to do". When I say I am glad I took that time to do such and such, I am saying that I went out of my way and was glad that I did it anyway. Am I nitpicking? Can someone explain it better than me.

K8STFU said...

Hi Maggie, no it's not just you.

K8 also recently said that she has to work harder to keep her promises (paraphrasing, forget which interview).

K8 is too stupid to realize how ridiculous she sounds. Unfortuntely, the sheeple are none too bright either......

maggie said...

I found the quote from Kate about staying home and baking cookies. It was during the Good Morning America interview aired on 4/4/10. It was with Pam, Niecy, and Kate about being a Mom and Dancing. Kate said, "If it could all go away because I was financially set and I could stay home and I could bake and cook from scratch, like I love to do, I'd so be there.

What a liar. If she won a 100 million lottery Kate would not stay home with her kids and cook and bake. In Kate's World she says, " I am so torn. I'm so split. I love my career. I so am torn. You love being home but you love your job". Really. Then why say, "If I was financially set and I could stay home and I could bake and cook from scratch, like I love to do, I'd so be there." Why doesn't ANY interviewer call her out on her dribble and lies. She drives my nuts!

maggie, the reason this statement drove me nuts too, is because she thinks she actually has a job. I guess if I had it, I'd like it too. Having an escort squire me around to first class hotels, restaurants, resorts, etc., while I do NOTHING but bark order and sit on a couch and talk about my favorite topic - ME! THAT is her job and I guess I can't blame her for loving it. I am not jealous either - I am set for life; retired at 35 and I could do anything I want. I choose to volunteer, donate loads of money AND time to things I believe in. I'm not really a shopper (LOVE bargains), I get my hair done every 3 months, a pedicure about that often (too ticklish), and on and on. My spouse had to beg me to buy a new car, only a Toyota RAV4, but I love it and still have not been able to 'break up' with my 15-year-old car. We have a house and also a condo in the city. We actually enjoy that little condo with nothing to clean, no yard, no stuff to collect dust, etc. I look at our house (paid off) and think, "Why do we have this?" I understand that money cannot buy happiness - in fact I know lot of miserable yet wealthy people. Kate hasn't learned that. As long as the gravy train keeps rolling, she won't either. And as long as people keep feeding her massive ego, we're going to see/hear from her.

Pony said...

Ohio Buckeye said:"I loved your point about K8G's apparent fascination about her kids' bodily excretions. Seriously, WHAT is that about?"

The only thing I can think of is that Kate is really a nine or ten year old boy. As I recall, when my sons were about that age, they were not only fascinated by their own bodily excretions but thought I should be as well. So I'd get called, "Mom! Come quick!" And they got me a couple of times, before it dawned on me that I needed to tell them I had no interest in what came out of them.

KyPastor said...

There are times we have a child in church who suddenly gets a stomach ache after drinking a cup of juice too fast or something. Or, perhaps they were coming down with something anyway and it came full force during church. The family has advance notice from me that they are certainly not expected to sit there quietly while their child needs care. I encourage them to go take care of the child and don't think they are disrupting us. I encourage them to walk a fussy child, do whatever their parentental instincts tell them to do to help their child. The parents can leave and go home if they want. They can put all their attention into cuddling that child and ignore the service going on. We can stop what we are doing and help if necessary because there is nothing more immportant to us than the people in our building.

I am concerned that the crew doesn't stop filming and encourage Kate to go take care of her needy child, whether it is an emotional outburst begging for response, or a child with a sick tummy. There is nothing going on with filming that is more important than the
wellbeing of the children. I might like to remind Ms. Gosselin of that as well.

readerlady said...

@ KyPastor

You sound like a loving and caring minister. Wish I could be a member of your congregation. I remember when I was a teenager a child had a seizure during the worship service and our "minister" stood in the pulpit and glared at the parents until they were able to remove him from the sanctuary.

@Maggie - what made Khate's statement about loving to cook and bake from scratch for the kids even more bizarre is that, during one of the early shows, she said she couldn't bake. She made a big deal of envying Aunt Jodi because she could bake and Khate couldn't. She certainly can't keep her lies straight.

kate's an idiot said...

Seeing a humiliated Kate hide in the closet at the fan-less booksigning was poetic. Steve had to talk her into acting like an adult, suck it up, and go sign books. I hear three people were there when she arrived (snicker...), a mom and her kids. Kate tried to save face by saying she's used to there being 1200-1500 people at these events and that this book signing had been thrown together at the last minute. Okaaaay.... What did the moron expect? She has sold 10,000 copies of her crappy book. How many people did she think would be there, even with lots of publicity?Just loved that her humiliation was caught on camera and made TLC's final cut. Fool

Right Jon?"...then the next scene she is saying how she "ALWAYS" bakes the twins birthday cake "FROM SCRATCH"....or yelling about Jodi giving the kids gum, then her giving them gum...saying they will NEVER have nannies, and showing the nannies....saying her and Jon will never get divorced, then her saying they are divorcing...and SHE was the one who filed for the divorce!

Kate keeps talking about her "job".

Kate, WHAT IS YOUR JOB?!

You are famous for having sextuplets. That isn't a job.

You were paid money for selling those kid's lives on tv. That isn't a job.

Your former friend Beth wrote a book about your faith, your marriage and your kids. You went around signing the book, and being interviewed. That isn't a job.

The only "job" I see are the people working cleaning your house, cooking your meals, and watching your kids.

You don't have a job. You do not know how to write. You are not a mother. You don't know how to be a wife. You are NOT an entertainer; you can't act, can't dance, can't sing.

What you are is a pimp, selling others for money. You don't sell sex, you sell sextuplets.

Oh yeah, the before and after video, be sure to get the one where she was crying and saying that she didn't have ONE friend left, only hired help and pair it with her saying that Jamie has been her best friend for 9 years and the only one who was faithful! LOL!

Kate, because no one else tells you, you should know that your "greatest fear" is true: you ARE a horrible mother. You are. Face it and deal with it. You don't have to stay that way. You have the ability to change. All you have to do is put the NEEDS of your KIDS before your GREEDS.

"Every mother's greatest fear is not being a good mom". I hate to break it to you, Kate, but I don't have that fear at all. I had 4 kids within 3 years (the oldest 2 are twins) - and I NEVER doubted I was a good mom because I KNOW what I did/do for my kids. I spent TIME with them, guided them and disciplined them, then even TAUGHT them (they were homeschooled for the first 5 years), and all 4 are Honour students now and have excellent character. And yes, I divorced their dad 10 years ago and raised them ON MY OWN without nannies or family of ANY sort (including their dad, who quit being a dad), and on an average wage with long working hours. They KNOW I am in their corner and that I truly have THEIR best interests at heart at all times, not mine. That's why I KNOW I'm a good mom. It takes true selflessness and empathy, Kate - you should try it sometime, maybe THEN you'll experience peace of mind.

Oh yawn, please ROL, more stuff about Jon, what a shocker, he drinks, smokes, has girlfriends. Who the heck cares!, this is so yesterday's news. Of course, the kids will be privy to all of this, once they can troll the Internet. Not that this has ever occurred to anyone at ROL, or their bff Kate, as being potentially damaging to the kids.
This whole drama is beginning to feel old, still hope that the kids can someone get some protection from this crap.

TexasTwang said...

I didn't watch any of the shows and won't because - first of all, I DO NOT like that shrew of a woman and second, it's only a bunch of shrill, loud noise and whiny people going places to which I wish I could afford to take my kids to visit. It's kind of like a year round vacation.

In fact, I really haven't watched since the first season. I can only stand so much crying and yelling and noise and got my fill of it very quickly.

I won't tune in on anything that phony is on, including DWTS, nor will I purchase anything that her goofy mug graces. I feel sorry for the little ones, but geeze, I hope she goes away soon, hopefully to be a real parent to that litter she spawned.

"Kate Plus Eight": Wow, the start of the new Gosselin season kicked off with an hour of latchkey-kid birthday parties. Kate and the kids hit Sea World, while I assume Jon sat in an apartment somewhere in an Ed Hardy shirt playing solitaire on his phone. Then a bonus hour of behind-the-scenes footage, showing off some of the union carpenters and plasterers who put together Kate's look every day! Oh, and they mixed in lots of quotes from a People magazine reporter, who kept telling us how Kate is the biggest celebrity to emerge from out of nowhere in recent years that she can think of. Of course, she does work for People magazine, so thinking's not necessarily her strong suit."

I watched the Kate's world episode at 2am this morning while I was sitting up with a sick kitty cat. I was really disturbed by Kate's behavior in the car with Steve. I know you all have said it before, but, she is not right in the head for real. It was hard to watch her. I am sure she was not acting. This woman really cannot cope with stuff. It was bad news--yes--but she almost went into the fetal position right in front of our eyes. Her reaction certainly was not the strong "Can Do Kate" or "Clean Slate Kate" she is trying to sell. I am more afraid than ever about those children.

6/10/2010 1:01 PM


Tell me about it. She had a meltdown in the restaurant at Discovery Cove because she had to get food for 7 kids. If you noticed, there were no other guests in line ( it's cafeteria style and already prepared ). She didn't have to stand in line AND she had help from Steve and the DC employees assigned to kiss her ass that day.

Yet she still managed to have a coniption fit.

3 years ago I went with the gifted classes at my school to Discovery Cove and I stood in a line with 6 kids ( 4th graders ). There were maybe 10-15 people ahead of us. I had NO help and didn't need any. Never even occured to me that someone would need help doing this.

Ok, I get that 6 year olds can't carry a tray. Mady and Cara could carry their own tray and Alexis wasn't there, so she only had to worry about 5. You don't have to pay, so that wasn't an issue. She didn't have to stand in line, so that wasn't an issue. ALL SHE HAD TO DO was line the kids up against a wall and one by one stand with each kid for 1-2 minutes so they could tell the people what THEY wanted to eat ( not what Kate wanted them to eat ) and then have Stevie carry the tray and come back to get another one.

As easy as all that should've been, and it would've taken at the most 10 minutes, she still managed to have a hissy fit.

I think she was really disturbed that their food wasn't already waiting for them at the table and all she had to do was sit and be catered to. She seemed irked that they expected her to actually take care of her own kids. She clearly just wanted to sit and eat and not have to deal with doing it the way everybody else does.

Again, that special treatment / entitlement thing shone right through. More of the same old same old, watching the Gosselin's receive freebies and being treated like royalty before they fly back to their mansion.

TLC, if you are reading this, how about a trip to the Gulf Coast for the Gosselins so they can help clean up oil and wash oil off animals. Or, better yet, send Kate there for TWIST OF KATE and shove her in the pipe to stop the leak.

What do you mean 6 year olds can't carry a tray

*****

I could in Kindergarten (age 5) and in 1st grade (age 6). That's how I got my lunch every day. The only kids who got help were the occasional ones who had a broken arm or leg. We were taught to be
as self sufficient as possible and to do basic stuff without help. Like get dressed, brush our teeth,
tie our shoes, make our beds, and eat at a table in a regular sized chair. And the proper use of forks, knives, spoons and napkins. Learning started at home and continued at school.

Irwin took a barb in the heart. The rays at DC have had their barbs removed.

I think she was really disturbed that their food wasn't already waiting for them at the table and all she had to do was sit and be catered to. She seemed irked that they expected her to actually take care of her own kids. She clearly just wanted to sit and eat and not have to deal with doing it the way everybody else does.
---------------------

Exactly, katie Kreider wanted to be waited on hand & foot. She has no interest in doing anything for her own children. she probably didn't want to stand in line for her own food, so she certainly isn't going to want to stand in line for their food.

I like your idea about sending kate to the Gulf Coast, I'd like it if they made her wipe oil off of grass & reeds for days. I'd think her yap alone would stop that leak!

NT said...

She says she usually doesn't have to do this,meaning feed her kids on her own. How did she think she could take care of eight kids. It just boggles my mind how some people say she is such a good mother and she really does nothing by herself for these kids. AND BUY A ONE PIECE SWIMSUIT!!!!

"Ok, I get that 6 year olds can't carry a tray. Mady and Cara could carry their own tray and Alexis wasn't there, so she only had to worry about 5. "

Yes they can..even 5 year olds can carry trays. They do it all of the time if they attend public school, as most have all day kindergarten, and if they don't brown bag it, they would carry their own tray in the cafeteria.

To address jill's remarks about the cafeteria:

You are right on your views but I'd like to add....

This episode shoots down TLC's hype about K8 being SO organized and her coping skills.

Should we recognize that the trays provided were NOT GOLDEN? Thus, this was so upsetting to her that she was forced into a meltdown.

Let me rephrase that. 6 year old GOSSELIN kids can't carry trays. They were never taught.

The drinks on trays in a school cafeteria aren't top heavy and easy to spill. The drinks at Dis. Cov. would've been spilled in a nano second if a G kid carried their own tray. I can't fault Queenie this time for not allowing them to carry their own tray, but melting down like she did and making it a bigger issue than it had to be was just her over the top drama she thrives on.

Bottom line is, she wanted to be pampered and having to get her kids food herself sent her over the edge.

Proud Grandma said...

Re they kids couldn't carry trays. My four year old Granddaughter is very proficient at carrying her own tray. I took her to the zoo a couple of weeks ago and she insisted on carrying her own tray, loading it up too, and not only that, bless her, she cleared off the table after we finished eating. When she took the tray to the cleaning station, the lady there complimented her and my granddaughter asked her if she needed any help clearing tables. This little girl is my third grandchild and though they are not siblings, they all have a great attitude as to responsiblities, politeness and such. Oh and we are blessed as they all have great speeking capabilities and knock the sox off us with their vocabularies. They all speak a lot clearer than the Gosselin Six.
Ok so maybe I should rename myself "Bragging Grandma". Enjoy your day.

"...TLC, if you are reading this, how about a trip to the Gulf Coast for the Gosselins so they can help clean up oil and wash oil off animals. Or, better yet, send Kate there for TWIST OF KATE and shove her in the pipe to stop the leak."

Jill, you hit the nail on the head!!!!!! with your whole post!!!!

Six year olds CAN carry a freaking tray. Six year olds can be self sufficient... IF they are taught how to be, and encouraged to be, and expected to be.

But, as weve discussed... Kate wants babies. She wants to be needed. She wants to be able to do the 'poor me- Im SOOO needed, the kids CANT live without me!!!'

And it has a lot to do with her not being around to parent them, to teach them, encourage them and instead they have no skills like carrying a freaking tray.

Or maybe they CAN, and she wont let them. Because of her psycho need/desire to be dramatic. WHY on earth werent they waited on??? Dont the people at DC know who they are???!!!!

...like you said.... its about the entitlement.

She wanted them waited on.

Send 'em somewhere to snap her out of her unrealistic (she is NOT a celebrity, not matter how hard she tries), fake ( does she realize the only people who play to her are PAID to?) world.

She needs to be humbled and and taught a few life lessons (kindness, 'what goes a round come around', do unto others..., whats really important) and there is no better way to learn those lessons than to get out of your comfort zone and give back.

I didn't watch the show but maybe she meant she usually does not have to serve herself since she is waited on hand and foot. People are so stupid to wait on that spoiled diva!

Somewhereinoh said...

This isnt the first, second, third, or even 4th time that Kate, TLC, and the various 'help' have visted an amusement park, tourist attraction, vacation spot. The tups are 6 years old and the twins 9, if at this point, after 6+ years of being a parent of MULTIPLES, and if Kate doesnt have a 'system down pat' with respect to the ordering/serving of meal time while on 'vacation', then IMO she doesnt know what the HELL she is doing! I understand that kids get tired and cranky while on vacation, however, it's part of MOMMY duty to step up to the 'plate' and get the kids in check and fed, not break down like she has never done if before. Well, then again, Kate probably hasnt!

Pre-K doesn't use the cafeteria facilities at their school. This does not mean, however, that they aren't capable of doing it or shouldn't learn how to do it.

OK, this is yet another problem with being in Pre-K at their aqe.
If the school doesn't let their Pre-Ks carry trays in the lunchroom then there are other ways for them to learn how. They could carry their own lunches on on trays the days they are not in school. They could carry craft supplies on trays out to their driveway tables. I know it's a small thing, but if you've got 8 kids, six of them quite young, you need to start teaching them how to do the basic life skills so they can function in the world.

I can just see the kids the first time they go with friends to McDonalds. They will expect to be served at their table and not have to carry any trays. Get with it, Kate and start working with your chilldren!

jasmine said...

One of Kate's gophers or the theme park employees would have carried the childrens' trays if they couldn't manage themselves. Did Kate even allow the children to go inside or choose what they each wanted to eat? The children probably would have enjoyed being able to pick out what they individually wanted to eat. I doubt she even allows the sextuplets to choose what they each want to eat from the kids menu in restaurants. She just orders the same thing for all of them. They are old enough and should be allowed to make food choices when they are eating out.

I had twins who were preemies. They were born at 36 weeks. 11/2 hours apart. We never made one feel older or younger than the other. We told them they were both born on this day
and they were equal. (and we celebrated their birthday, not the day they were expected) Only later did we say you were born and you came an hour and a half later. It was totally a non issue. I can't believe the sibling jealously Kate has fostered on her twins by emphasizing who came first.
Also, don't you think that you would sit and work with your kids
with life skills more if you had six of them? Like tying laces,
potty training, carrying trays. etc
I would work on it MORE with them, not less! I would find it insulting
to my skills as a mother if my six year olds still were in high chairs used sippy cups and (please no) wore bibs. It says Kate is a lazy mother.

It's not a matter of the school not letting them carry trays in the lunchroom. They don't use the dining commons at that age!

There's no reason, however, that they can't practice carrying food around on trays at home. Sooner or later they're going to have to do it at school. Kindergarteners do have designated responsibilites of taking "milk orders" and bringing the milk back on trays to the classrooms.

Brummygirl said...

There is a saying.."The more things change, the more they stay the same!!" I see that Kate once more has a show off the backs of her children.
Hello GWOPers, I am back from England and Spain and had a great time. No this wasn't a "Gosselin type" freebie, but due to hard work during our lives to enable us to do this on retirement.
It is a great leveller to be 6000 miles away from Kate Gosselin and in spite of one fellow Brit's comment on Kate crossing the pond, I questioned quite a few people who all said "WHO??"
It makes one step back and wonder just what the hype is all about.
BTW. I saw hundreds of *sheep* in England, but they were the fluffy woolly kind, not the ones with barbed wire!! Not one of them had Kate's photo tattoed on their derriere which is more than be said for the imitation Sheeple!!!
I was not here for the new show, so I caught it on you tube which reiterates my first comment about nothing changes regarding money grabbing harridon Kate.
I wish she could put at least two sentences together without using cringingly awful vocabulary.
Those kids do not stand a chance in hell of living a normal life. How could I even think that they would knowing their mother is far from normal and their dad is a wimp for not fighting this. No stars for you Jonny boy!!

I also hate how she ALWAYS lists them in birth order-even in that new opening poor Joel comes last.

The tups are not in PreK. They are in Junior Kindergarten. And, perhaps one of the reasons that three of the tups were not able to advance to Kinder was because they are never allowed to think for themselves. They are ordered around and told what to do. They are not allowed to make mistakes either because this would slow down production. Goodness gracious if one tup has a mind of their own, they get shut down. I am thinking of when one of the little girls wanted a bagel for breakfast and wasn't allowed to have one. Their lives is one big Truman Show, it is not living life.

Kapaccino said...

OMG, still LMAO at previous poster's mention of using Khate to plug the oil leak. If only...

readerlady said...

". . . they are never allowed to think for themselves."

I agree that this is a major problem for the younger kids. I've never raised a child, but I have taught school and I have 13 god children and numerous "honorary" nieces, nephews and grandchildren. All of them have been taught to make decisions for themselves. My youngest godchild is about 6 months younger than the 6 younger kids. From the time she was able to talk she has been given choices - basic things like "do you want to wear the red top or the blue top", "do you want Peter Rabbit or The Pokey Little Puppy". Now she is allowed to make more complex decisions like "do you want broccoli or green beans for dinner" or "do you want to wash your hair now or in the morning". When she starts first grade, she'll be able to do the work because she's been taught to think for herself (within reason). I fear for the G^6, because I don't think they have the decision making skills necessary for success in school, and Khate is such a control freak that she will never teach them.

What really gets me is everyone going on about her being a single mother and "doing it all by herself" She has paid help! She does nothing by herself. Single mothers who have to work for a living must want to spit nails when she says this nonsense.
