There was a recent article in one of the mags that talked about Kate being in love with Steve. Well, I think they are putting this out there to cover up that Kate and Jamie are the real couple. I think it's a smokescreen.

Hard to Keep Loving Jon said...

If there's a problem, then it's a sign of a problem, and then there's a problem???? WTF

I'm embarrassed to say I watched The View rerun and was appalled to once again be hit with THERE'S NO CURE FOR STUPID (or lying). And that poor Sherrie is dumber than a bucket of rocks. Does she think Kart's going to give her a free box of Juicy Juice for kissing up?

Maelstrom said...

Remember the great big marriage vow renewal farce in Hawaii? Well that charade was performed approx. 6-9 months prior to the first solid signs of the marriage disintegrating.

I give it 6-9 months for the boobs/botox truth to come out. She will come out of this smelling like a liar.

Yes Kate, "Honesty is the best policy"... but it is certainly not YOUR policy.

HonestKate said...

In this video, the "great new bra" doed wonders even when Kate goes braless!

Her tank top is cut waaaaaay to low! It does not leave much to the imagination.

Cry Me A River said...

Does anyone know how to find ratings for the View with and without Kate. The producer talking about the ratings on DWTS - those ratings were maintained throughout the show - even after Kate left. She gets far too much credit for ratings and loves it. That laugh is sooo irritating, ugh.

Was Steve not with her in New York?

vipersue said...

Kates entire performance on the View was an embarrassment imho. For me the worst was during the spray tan segment when she found it necessary to inform us viewers that she had no spray tan contouring on her body. She must believe the entire world is facinated by all things Kate and dying to know all details. What narcissism!

crabapplegranny said...

Dorothy went to Oz and danced her way on the yellow brick road. She helped the scarecrow get a brain, and the tin man, a heart. She met the wizard who couldn't help her. Good witch Glinda told her she always had the power to go back home. And she returned to Kansas.

Kate went to Oz and bumbled her way on the yellow brick road. She wanted to "heart" the tin man but didn't have the brains to do it. Finally the wizard, aka purse holder, told her how to change her outer appearance. But she should have paid no attention to that man behind the curtain. He could not change her heart because she has none. (Jon could have told us that.) She has no desire to return home.

So I guess it's up to us to say, "Your 15 minutes are up." Kate, it's time to leave Oz and GO HOME!

Lorrie said...

Didn't Kate also say "If you look good, you feel good. If you feel good, you do..."

Fittingly, even she could not muster up the nerve to finish that sentence.

Jenny said...

Oh my lord, I'm still dying laughing from the comments about K8's latest appearance on The View from the previous Free Discussion! And you know what I find the most interesting thing of all about her appearance...it's the fact that not once...NOT EVEN ONCE...did anyone give a plug to either of K8's upcoming shows (unless I missed it). And you all know how she totally makes that a priority every time she gets in front of any camera. I bet she got an earful from TLC about dropping the ball on that one. You know, as in "Kate, the only reason we send you out for appearances on these shows is so you can publicize our network! This is show BUSINESS...and you forgot the cardinal rule: plug, plug, and plug some more! It's all about ratings which in turn puts money in all our pockets and you blew it, missy!"

On the other hand, it makes me wonder if possibly the ladies on the show...especially Joy and Whoopie... purposely kept the talk going in order to prevent it. I honestly can't believe that it was an accident since we all know how savvy these women always are about publicizing each of their guest's latest project, book or upcoming appearances.

Also, I agree with everyone who noticed that Whoopie and Joy both were extremely cold to K8. Yes...the facial expressions of those two pretty much said it all, as well as their interactions with her. Wow. Just wow.

Btw, the Bill Geddie preview filmed with her...it was all oh so cutsie but I loved when he innocently mentioned that her reputation was that she is mean but that she didn't seem mean to him. The look on K8's face was priceless. After viewing this train wreck of an appearance on The View, I'm now thinking we're at 14.9 minutes and counting.

she's naturally that ugly said...

We all know Kate is a big fat liar, and a bad one at that. She's too stupid to keep all those lies straight and lies about both huge and inconsequential things. Denying an OBVIOUS and publicly flaunted boob job and OBVIOUS and tragic Botox job to a national audience will only serve to expose her house of cards. This will bite her on her dimpled butt. Kate may get some press out of this, but she is busted for lying about what is obvious to the View hosts, her few admirers and many detractors, her kids, and to the public at large, be they religious or not. She is systematically eroding any fan base she may still have left and cultivating a new crop of haters. The View ladies didn't dignify her lies about the plastic surgery because it wasn't worth it; an obvious lie that just made Kate look more stupid and sleazy than ever.

pinkdiamond611 said...

At least when Jon was with the kids they had a halfway decent childhood. I believe that Yawn would have gone through the rituals of fireworks and putting out flags for the kids whether they were filming or not. Yawn took them swimming in the ocean, and I believe to visit his Aunt and Uncle down in FL. I hope the kids are with Jon for the fourth, because he will have fun for the sake of having fun and making memories, not for the cameras.

Knows Quality When She Sees It said...

My thoughts on "The View" appearance:

Loved the dress; hated the shoes...

Hairstyle was indeed being used to cover up the forehead...with that said, I like the style & cut of her current hair, but I think it's almost "too" platinum blonde...I wish it was toned down a bit...

I felt that Katie was a step or two behind the other hosts during the entire Hot Topics section. She can't keep up with the flow of the conversation - as it goes too fast - and as much as she would try to get a point in, the other hosts would sometimes just talk right over her.

I spewed my drink all over the screen when she said, "Honesty is the best policy." Right after she had sat there and denied plastic surgery and Botox.

I kept waiting for the lightening bolts to come down from the sky and strike her.

After the Hot Topics, she was pretty much useless. A non-entity. And it was funny that she never plugged her upcoming shows....

From last weeks free discussion...

fidosmommy said...
I just watched the short video of Kate today. Listen very carefully to it.....Joy is talking about breast implants and says, "Are they yours?". Kate says NO, and then goes into the yammering about
who cares anyway? Joy retorts that Kate is trying to dispel the rumors, and one of the rumors is
that Kate has had breast surgery.
Joy tells Kate she didn't answer the question, to which Kate replies yes, she did, and the answer is No.

Remember the question: ARE THEY YOURS?
-----------------------------------
Gosh what an open question. Since she proably has a receipt it shouldn't have been too hard to say "yes". It wouldn't be exactly lying but...

dustilies said...

Well, well, well . . . ROL has pics of a new row of evergreen trees being planted at the McMansion to screen the view from the road (and the Paps).

About time, I say. Except its the wrong time. July is a lousy month to plant anything, especially trees. It is just too hot--the new root system can't take up enough water to keep up with evaporation.

These are big, 5-6 foot evergreens. Can't tell from the photos what kind they are. But the truckload of them we see being planted very close together most have cost a boatload of cash. Wonder who is paying for them?

Cry Me A River said...

Maybe the promo was the card that Joy tore up in her face when she started trying to tell yet another lie.

gaby2 said...

We will watch the new trees die, unless there is a full time gardener. She cares for nothing....

Lucy said...

"She's too stupid to keep all those lies straight"
***************************

Truth rides a faster horse. It always catches up.

Trying to keep your lies straight is just too difficult for most people especially Khate.

couch potato said...

Honesty is the best policy?

Yeah, that went really well with Kate nit-picky with Jon with all these "problems", like he breathes too loudly.

Sometimes, you just need to keep your mouth shut. Sometimes being brutally honest doesn't pay.

Kate was so unprepared to go on the view with Whoopi. Whoopi gave her an opportunity to plug at the very beginning when she asked, "and what have you been up to lately?", and Kate answered, "Nothing". After that, Kate was fair bait. Kate could have said something about her work, or had a witty story about her kids or anything. Instead she gave Whoopi the floor.


Kate is so not witty. Yeah, they knew she was lying. Just like Octomom never had a tummy-tuck. Kate didn't have a boob job!

Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!. They had a blast pestering the hell out of Kate!

Kate has double standards. She wants everyone to be honest with her. She will be honest with others pointing out their flaws. But for her to be honest about herself? Forget it!

She's a Faker Queen said...

Well, it's taken how long? Couple of years now of us talking about her parading her kids in the driveway and worrying about the kids privacy and safety....

She's a slow learner, that Kart sure is!!

But I have to wonder about the real reason for her putting those trees up. It can't be just because she read this blog.

I wonder if there were some real safety issues such as threats and the Purse Holder finally said "Enough! When I went to bodyguard school they told us about how to block papparazzi access for safety, and we need to put up some trees just like the GWOP folks have been saying for a long time."

Oh wait -- silly me! This way they won't be able to get their photos unless they agree to PAY Kart!

One more way she is controlling her image.

Sure the line of evergreens will deter the paps from taking photos at the KONPOUND but will not stop Kate from calling on the paps to take photos when she treks the Gosselin 8 to the bus stop, grocery store, doctor visits, errand running etc.. A row of evergreens isnt going to stand in the way of Kate exploiting her children.

Tongue-Tied said...

"She can't keep up with the flow of the conversation - as it goes too fast - and as much as she would try to get a point in, the other hosts would sometimes just talk right over her."

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

I think that perhaps the reason she can't keep up with the conversation is because she's trying to figure out what to say that doesn't contradict a previous lie she has told.

Ohio Buckeye said...

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Plus the ONLY topic she ever seems to enjoy discussing is HERSELF, so, while she's mentally trying to figure out how to drive the conversation back to "Kate Gosselin," the conversation rolls right along without her.

Just as her former viewers have done, rolled along forward without her.

Ohio Buckeye said...

Wonder if "Nature Girl's" new love of evergreens has anything to do with an attempt to keep more secret just how many hours the kids are filmed?

*****

Yes she did blow that opportunity, but I really think she was trying to be funny. It was Kate's version of sarcasm. It came off really poorly, of course.

It reminded me of the office worker who has a foot high pile of folders in front of him/her, the boss walks in and asks "Are you busy?" Uh, no, I'm not doing a thing here....

Kate just simply is not a funny person. She is way too icy for that, IMO.

She also gives a lousy interview and has no business on a talk show panel.

Lorrie said...

Someone over at ABC may have it in for Kate. Why is Kate's picture omitted from the promo page?
It features:
Jesse Tyler Ferguson - 6/29
James Franco - 6/30
Helen Hunt - 7/1
Joy Behar - 7/2

http://abc.go.com/watch/the-view/167365

For someone who believes she is a big ratings draw, it's telling that Kate is the only guest host who doesn't merit her own photo.

Ohio Buckeye said...

WTH was that little song and dance K8G did on The View, blathering on about being pregnant for X months and X days and how bad she still feels for 'missing her goal' delivery date by going into labor a few days earlier than her goal????

It's just interesting to observe K8G's apparent perception of herself:

1) a person who is goal-driven and thrives on challenge. A person who will give everything her all to achieve the goal.

2) a person who has less confidence in herself than her poor, stuck-with-the-dud-of-the-high-school-dance DWTS partner has in her (yeah, right, as if we believe any of that)

3) a selfless and loving mother who wants nothing more than to be home baking from-scratch cookies with her kids

4) a person who TOLERATES the fame hell she has created for herself and kids ONLY because she needs the $ to support her beloved children.

5) Creative author.

6) Outstanding cook.

7) A woman of strong religious faith and outstanding ethics.

8) A person who possesses all the class $ can buy.

I think that about covers it.

Wow, just wow. Amazing the chasm between what K8G's mirror reflects back to her vs. the perception most tv viewers have of her.

Someone in this mix is clearly delusional.

Good news for Kate!
The Daily Beast has a gallery of newly popular "Ridiculous Plastic Surgeries."

Among them is a new technique for liposucting (is that a word?) cankles. And, believe it or not, for a surgery to shorten overlong toes! (KatesBigFlintstoneToe, are you still out there?)

So more chances to avoid actually reflecting on her inner self.

_________________________



My first thought was that TLC had those trees put in so the paparazzi would stop spoiling upcoming episodes.

We know that the little flags were put around the driveway in JUNE, but the episode will probably appear to have a July 4th theme. The kids were probably told it was Independence Day back in June.

With the trees, they can begin filming a Thanksgiving episode in October and Christmas in November...but the paps always put a damper on it by photographing the filming and putting it on ROL.

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

Ohio Buckeye, do you think she CONSCIOUSLY is thinking "How do I steer the conversation back to myself" or does it just come SUBCONSCIOUSLY or 'automatic'?

I know narcissists consciously scheme, but after awhile, don't they just run on 'auto-pilot'?

Excuse my poor wording here...anyone get what I'm trying to say?

Canadian Mom said...

I hesitate commenting on the kids at all, but Mady sure seems attached to Jon's new gf...

Altho, clearly they are only photos...

It is sad though, if a young 20-something with no children (that we know of!)has more maternal instinct for kids not her own, than a 30-something biological mother of 8...

(*NO offense intended to mothers who have adopted!) :)

Reading Native said...

My mom saw Kate at the grocery store today. She was wearing a little sundress and was getting flags and big red, white, and blue flowers. She was in the checkout lane next to her. My mom said the aisle she went through had about four magazines with her face plastered all over them. She didn't see if she had to pay for anything, though (we were told a few months ago by a store employee who is also a family friend that she still gets everything for free at that particular store).

Exhausted said...

At the end of the day, I think it must be sad to be Kate. Imagine never being able to talk freely because 90% of what you have to communicate is a manufactured lie and a ruse you're trying to pull off. And then you have to be ordered around by PR people and TLC execs all the time to carry out their newest strategy or media campaign.

You even have to agree to debasing stories leaked to the press just to keep your name out there. It's all part of the plan, kid. No worries. You're a stranger to your kids, they like their father better. You have no one to really talk with who knew you way back when because your "job" and your exaggerated sense of self importance alienated you from the ones who care about you, even your own mother.

Every move you make has to be part of a strategy. Someone has to coach you with how you respond to everything because you've dug yourself in so deeply. You've suckered the public for a while, but it has faded. You get calls from higher ups every time you mess up, and most of the world sees you as a bad parent and a joke of a person. Your only group of supporters is an off-base, angry, grubby group of people whose grip on the world is scary.

Some of this has to sink in. And at the end of the day, after all you've given up, you realize that when you're on a show like The View or the Paula Deen gig you wanted so badly, you have not one interesting thing to say. You come off looking like a fool, and deep down, you know this ain't going to last forever. Your people are grasping at straws to keep you afloat, and when the money dries up, they'll all be gone.

What does it feel like to look in the mirror and be Kate Gosselin? I really would not want to know.

*****

Yeah, that was weird, wasn't it.
And I realize you're asking a rhetorical question, but I have to say I noticed it too.

She was talking about her perfectionism, and how she had wanted to dance as well as Nicole Scherzinger on DWTS. She said she did badly because she hadn't. That launched her into her sad little girl routine yammering about how she had wanted to "hold on" for 30 weeks with her pregnancy, but the kids were born at 29 weeks and 5 days. Therefore, her goal was not met.

No wonder her children never made it onto her approved list. They were born to darn early.

Ohio Buckeye said...

@Canadian Mom: My best guess (from having been married to a narcissist for (too) many years) is that driving the conversation back to herself is subconscious.

The narcissists I have known best had a heart and brain that could travel in only ONE direction, and that was circular, all around themselves.

They were very poor listeners, and my guess is that they were unwilling/unable to listen because a) they had little, if any, interest in anything or anyone outside themselves and b) because they were always so busy running through their brains' file cards in a desperate attempt to find a way to match up their own internal experiences with what was being discussed so that they could steal the reigns of the conversation.

Once they hit on some common ground in their internal world, they'd immediately try to bring the discussion back to them once again - a narcissist's only comfort zone.

Example: Rather than being able to pull info from the person being interviewed about tanning, all K8G is able to do is interject information about HERSELF. As always, everything is always all about K8, and she's the only one who is probably never going to GET it.

___________________________

everything for free -- UNBELIEVABLE!!
I don't know how she sleeps at night, knowing there are others who could badly use the freebies while she's sleeping in a mansion and has hired help. You would think she would at least give back to society but I haven't heard of her giving anything, only taking (unless it's a photo-op planned by TLC). I wish the media would come out with ALL the freebies this woman gets, maybe some of her supporters (like Sheri from the View and Meredith V.) would change their minds about her.

This aspect of her charade makes me the sickest, along with exploiting her children.

Sweetp said...

Saw the preview ad for the chicken show.... Seriously, could her squeal BE more annoying? Not to mention who the heck climbs on a roof in a mini skirt knowing they are being filmed from the ground. TLC and Kate you have reached a new level of disgusting!

**********
I don't believe for a minute the paps are real. There will still be pictures of the kids in the yard whenever TLC feels it's necessary to plug them, which is constantly. What are they going to say for the captions? That the paps were having to climb the fences and the trees to get the pics? It's just all so silly. We know no one has an actual job that consists of sitting outside the fence and getting secret footage of the Gosselins.

Thanx Buckeye! A very clear and concise explanation.

Vanessa said...

@ Reading Native,
Now THAT pisses me off! WHY is she still getting free stuff? Can you tell us what store this was? Target?
Loving all the comments about her appearance on The View. Would have liked it if Elisabeth had said "Oh yeah, WHAT bra would that be? Because I would love to get one! I've only had THREE kids, unlike yourself who's had EIGHT!"
I agree, every hot topic related to Kart is a VERY direct way, and she had zip, nada to say. She really is as dumb as a doorknob.
And what did she mean she'd rather address "these" rumors instead of some of the past ones?

ChurchMouse said...

How many trees?

Eight smaller ones around 1 larger one?

For outside Christmas-light displays?

Just bubble-gum for thought...

ChurchMouse said...

I think Ms. Gosselin's appearance on "The View" was very telling.

Whoopi gave her an opportunity to open the conversation with what's new in her life.

She could have said, "Wow, so much! We are building a chicken coop! And I'm working on my other new show! Life's so crazy busy right now! I love it!"

Instead, she got all defensive with the "What me? Nothing. Not up to anything. No boob jobs, no botox, no spray tanning. Just keeping it real, yes I am, just being little ole innocent me. Please love me. I'm so tired of being made fun of."

She didnt actually SAY that, but damn, it was obvious.

Ms. Gosselin, take Whoopi's advice. Smile, even if you don't want to. You are in the Entertainment Industry now. TLC owns your tuchus. Fame is your bread and butter. Like every other performer, once you get on camera, you have a job to do.

The truly sad thing is that she never knew she was signing up for any of this. Ask any aspiring actor and they will tell you that when they are honing their craft, they also learn Industry business skills. They are very aware that they will be leaving their private lives behind.

Ms. Gosselin never knew what hit her. She still doesn't. I wish to God she could get some therapy, but TLC probably would find some way to stifle that outlet. After all, they can't have their prime cash cow starting to think for herself, now, can they?

For all her money, I don't think she's at all happy. And I don't see that changing anytime soon. And that's the tragedy--because if she can't find peace within herself, how is she going to make good decisions for her kids?

Effing sad, that's what it is.

BerksPa said...

Something I've always wondered about and haven't heard any talk about it.
Why do we only see Kate surround by Paparazzi and NO fans.
All her appearances in NYC or arrivals when she was doing DWTS you'd think her fans would be surrounding her for her autograph.
Even her daily/weekly shopping trips to Giant Foods and Target (oh, and now Whole Foods) - wouldn't you think the paparazzi (ie Chris) would capture photos of Kate being kind and chatty with fans who really love her and think of her as 'mom of the year?'.

She's iconic only in her own (and TLC's) mind. She's a walking train wreck who either emotes 'Don't touch me' vibes from miles away, or truly is unliked by former fans, or she has hit the 14:59 mark and is just hanging on by a ratings thread as no other media outlet seems to care about reporting about her unless they are on the TLC payroll.

In any case, the lack of 'fans' in pictures is even more interesting to me than the lack of 'old friends and family' (because we all know what Kate did to them).

TinBox said...

Do Jon and Kate still take turns staying at the "kid's house"? I have not seen any pics of Kate packing up and heading to the hotel recently.

I believe that the house is "Kate's house". Remember that her wretched line: "Mine...all mine... as far as the eye can see!" Pure EVIL!

Mary said...

Ohh those please children. If I was a friend of kate I would be dead by now. That SQUEAL would drive me mad. why does she have to SQEAL for every thing. I thin the sqeal has been replaced from
her yelling Jon.. Poor
Jon if he had to hear that every day. He still must have nightmares from that voice.

I remember the scene from bed room when she said rake a look at it its the last time you see it. I was feeling bad for Kids because they could never enter the Kingdom. Gosh poor things if they are sick and need mommy's hug.
Little did I know she meant Joh as well.

when she yelled MINE MINE MINE
No Kate you might think its all yours what about your 8 kids

Kate I hope your days are numbered when its all over. you will be alone. We all know the twins days are numbered with you. Jon will welcome his home. See Kate Jon has a home you have a big house.

Ohio Buckeye said...

I'm curious as to how TLC is going to handle the inevitable 15 minutes o' fame alarm clock going off for K8G.

Will they admit she represents one of the biggest TLC gambles and gaffes in history? (Doubtful they will admit their folly IMO.)

OR

Will they play the same old we've heard when others have been secretly forced to step down, "With her growing children and the respective growing list of parental responsibilities, Ms. Gosselin has asked to have more time to spend off to spend with her children."

With the pathetic 'Home Maintenance Mama' and 'The Great American Chicken Coop Caper' the next impending episodes, that alarm clock is definitely ticking.....

like sands through the hourglass said...

Ohio Buckeye said...
@Maelstrom: good point. But if memory serves, that bogus vow renewal farce was filmed in August, the moved to K8's mansion in Oct/Nov. and, I'm guessing the marriage was already D.O.A. (though TLC and the Gosselins conspired to keep this secret at that time), so I'd take your timeline and shorten it.
----------------------------------
Memories..... like the corners of our minds....lol! I remember well the discussion here about how Jon and Kate looked like they were in severe pain while saying their fake vows. We were accused of being "jelus of there luv" by the sheeple, who proclaimed their idol and Jon would be "2-gethr 4-evah."


Seriously though, I think Kate's 15 minutes are just about up. The horrible book sales were a positive sign that the sheeple are no longer willing to help finance her mansion and plastic surgeries. She went from a Christian super mom to twins and tups and is now reduced to a desperate to stay relevant trainwreck of a floozy who dresses like a hooker to go get her daily photo-op two bags of groceries. She is hanging onto her "fame" (which is actually infamy) by her fake fingernails and by any means possible. She doesn't seem to give a hoot about what effect this has or will have on the children in the future. Her fame was built on a foundation of sand to begin with... and it is now slowly crumbling. I give them about 18 months until they will be forced to sell the Konpound (at a loss.)

Carezee said...

I found it quite interesting that when Kate was on the View no one asked about the articles about the body guard. They didn't ask how he was suppose to have picked out her boobs, help with the landscaping, help with homework, why his address is the same as hers or the all important wanting him to leave his wife for her. Didn't that come from an "inside" source? Why wasn't that hit on during the Kate debunks the rumors segment?

---------------
They won't die. Kate's landscapers will water them
constantly this summer, using up valuable community water resources. Because after all, Kate is so "green". They're probably filming an Arbor Day episode.

Interesting how this will be spinned. Kate, the concerned mom, puts up a tree line to shield her children from
the paps at least while they're at home (and to keep those pesky spanking pics to a minimum). Meanwhile, whenever the kids are with Jon, they will be fair game because obviously he doesn't love them enough.

In some ways I really hope Jon does go on the biggest loser or some other show and is able to earn enough to purchase a home for himself and the kids.

No one's looking at you. said...

Yes it is interesting that Kate is not surrounded by fans... Or even gawkers as she runs her fake errands for the fake paparazzo, Chris. I think the only attention she may garner is a result of having the photographer (that she calls) there taking her picture. And it's interesting how she slipped in and out of NY without paparazzi attention. Didn't Steve say she is followed by 20-30 paparazzi whenever she's in NY or LA? Yeah, not so much, Kate. What happened? Did Steve forget to call the paps for you while he's on vacation? Doesn't seem that he's all that necessary to protect Kate, as no one is paying attention to her. The hysteria and chaos is orchestrated by Kate's people; maybe Steve calls the paps as a form of job security...anyway, I'm sure he really needs his vacation time. No paycheck could be worth hanging out with that bitch and pretending to protect her from non-existent fans and paparazzi

HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY said...

I think something is up with the Steve being on vacation thing, oddly about the same time Kart pledges her love for him in in a magazine and that he won't leave his wife for her. I believe that story, all one has to do is see the way that she looks at him. It is a look of unrequited love. I know all are not true but these days most have a grain a truth with maybe a bit of embellishment. Since when in all of these years has he missed a trip to NY, especially the View.

No Trespassing said...

"Do Jon and Kate still take turns staying at the "kid's house"? I have not seen any pics of Kate packing up and heading to the hotel recently."

There was a report floating around out there that he's not allowed on the property. She told him he must pick up the kids at the end of the driveway.
Who knows the real truth, but it could explain why we haven't seen him with the kids on the grounds of the house.

JustCurious said...

Where did Kate profess her love for Steve?

readerlady said...

@ TinBox

I reported earlier that a thread I'm tracking on Amazon had a post from a friend of AL Walentis, stating that AL told her that Khate is angry with Jon so she will no longer allow him to set foot on the property. When it's his turn to have the children, she won't even allow him to come on the property to pick them up. She escorts them to the bottom of the driveway and he picks them up there. Mr. Walentis reported last week that he had finished correcting the proofs on his book "The Secret Life of Jon and Kate" and the electronic version should be available early this week.

It doesn't surprise me that Khate no longer allows Jon to come to the McOrphanage. She's been doing everything she possibly can to limit his time with his children and to alienate them from him. She's despicable.

Happy 4th of July. And to Corrin and all the other military families on here, thank you for your service and your sacrifices.

Monster Mommy said...

I believe all of you- that touched on Steve Neild not being in NYC Thursday... and no sign of paparazzi anywhere, are on to something. Maybe that's why Bill Geddie tried to sink his big fat old balding head, into Kate's fake boobies on "The View". No protection that day... and it seems she was fair game for everyone on the panel.

Happy 4th of July... Enjoy your holiday!

No Worry, Beef Curry said...

Happy Independence Day! Thank you to all of the Moderators, for spending their valuable time. And especially, to the military members for allowing us to be free in a great country!

Kate's right where she put herself now. Alone and miserable... with no husband- except for the one she's been trying to steal for over 2 years! Stupid Kate.... don't you know? Men rarely leave their wives, unless they are going to something far greater.

emschick1128 said...

I was trying to enjoy some of the Dateline Mysteries yesterday on TLC and periodically Kate would infect my screen with the promos for the new episodes. WTF is up with that squealing?? Does she think it's cute? She sounds like an idiot. She yells like that when a chicken walks towards her? I remember when she was first having her original hair extensions put in and they taped it. OMG her screaming when she was getting her HAIR WASHED left my jaw dropping. I don't even remember hearing any of my kids ever yell even close to that when getting their hair washed or if they did they were probably 3 at the time. She makes a total ass of herself and has no clue. In regards to the fake boobs, why not just admit it. She could have simply said I'm 35 had 8 kids and I wanted to feel and look better about myself so I got my boobs done, what's the big deal? I'm 47 and have had 4 kids(I know 4 is nothing compared to Kate's 8 of course)but I'll admit I'd be happy to give the girls a lift. I'm not saying Heidi Montag but a little boost wouldn't hurt. Now she just ends up once again looking like a liar. Imagine Jon has all 8 kids at a ball game with only Ellen, no entourage of helpers. How can he possibly manage?? Happy 4th to all the intelligent, logical people that frequent this site!

emschick1128 said...

Does Kate ever have the kids wear appropriate foot wear or is it always Crocs or flip flops that she probably gets for 2 for $5.00 at Old Navy. Who wants to be running through an airport adult or child in flip flops?

jasmine said...

So Kate was in NY for her appearance on the View without Steve and no paparazzi photos of her were taken. Why didn't her paparazzi buddy Chris show up? Someone either neglected to call him or he didn't want to waste gas money for the long drive. It's obvious she doesn't need Steve or a real bodyguard to protect her and the paparazzi are not following her every move. Steve's alone time with her is probably ending soon anyway.

Along with the tough questions regarding Kate's sex routine, fake boobs and botox, one of the women on the View should have asked her how much she spends each week on groceries and if she still receives free groceries from the local food stores. Joy commented on her own show how Kate needed to work to feed her kids.

Happy 4th of July!

Ohio Buckeye said...

@emshick1128: K8G's shrieking has always gotten on my last one good nerve, too.

Yes, I think she must've gotten attention for shrieking as a kid and that translated to K8G as the shrieking must be considered 'cute' to others, so here she is mid-thirties and still shrieking to get her attention fix.

Though previous seasons showed a K8G 'afraid' to ride on the Carsons' private acreage atop a three wheeler vehicle with her own husband, a season or two later, heeeeere's K8ie playing Biker Chick on the back of the motorcycle guy's ride. She mentioned how 'fun' it was and bragged "but of course, I had to scream" (paraphrase) - she said it in a way that came across as if screeching is K8G's signature reaction to all things animal, height, or vehicular - as if her shrieking is endearing.

I'd like to find out WHO told K8G the shrieking was 'cute' and ask them to update K8G: adults who shriek do not qualify as 'cute'. It's over K8G: knock off the screeching.

A mid-thirties mom of 8 who must ASK what to do with a window screen, shriek at a chicken or piece of fly paper is NOT 'cute'. Can someone please send K8G the memo?

Kate's Nemesis said...

@ Jasmine -
Kate's Life Blood is freebies.

They are still rolling in. She makes sure of it, every time she picks up a free case of Juicy Juice from The UPS Store!

Disgusting behavior fits like a glove, on a disgusting person.

kate can't do sh** said...

Could it be that due to too much speculating by the public, Steve has quit his job? Maybe Kate's nightly reading of GWOP with her bottle of wine and the bedroom door locked has finally paid off. She saw how bloody irritating and full of herself she was to the general public with regards to the boobyguard. Too little, too late loser. Damage control is not going to work now. Should have thought of that about 5 years ago when the world first saw what a self-serving, selfish, angry,(or "type A" as you so eloquently like to phrase it)snake you are.

Piteous and annoying said...

fidosmommy said...
Ohio Buckeye said...
WTH was that little song and dance K8G did on The View, blathering on about being pregnant for X months and X days and how bad she still feels for 'missing her goal' delivery date by going into labor a few days earlier than her goal????
*****
Yeah, that was weird, wasn't it.
And I realize you're asking a rhetorical question, but I have to say I noticed it too.
===============================
Is this woman EVER going to stop talking about her pregnancy? It's such old news. I guess it's what continues to define her because what else is she good for...everything lately is a flop like the DWTS stint, the apparent (from what I'm reading) tanking on this past week's The View, etc. The way she goes on and on about the long-ago pregnancy and bedrest reminds me of the big highschool football player who, 25 years later, never found new glory in anything else and, when he's balding and age 43, nobody's too interested any longer about how many touchdowns he had in his senior year at Such&Such High School. Some people just never grow and move on. It's pitiful and so boring.

Bwahahaha said...

Kate, I bet you check on this board several times a day!!!! Bwahahahahaaaa!

Boston Bonnie said...

Regarding Steve's "vacation", I'm wondering if the inside source's comments about the purse holder had Mrs. Steve fuming and she insisted he get his butt home?

Just seems too much of a coincidence that he is out of the picture so close to revelation that he helped pick out Khates new breasts.

Honesty is the Best Policy said...

Has Kart been photographed at Target since she started going to WH? Just seems like there were usually pictures of her there everyday and haven't noticed any lately. She is promoting the heck of WH. I hope they know what are getting in for, she will bleed them dry, and have groceries stored in every cubicle of her house.

I really think that is why she went overboard about what the kids eat to justify the amount of groceries she plans on taking during her free trips. She will need to convert an entire room into a walk-in pantry, and I doubt she would donate an ounce of it to the local food drives.

her web is too tangled said...

With regard to this daily shopping Kate does, surely by now even SHE must worry about how obvious she appears because what person out there truly spends every day shopping once they're off the road, off work and home? I've definitely known some shopaholics in my time and even THEY don't take it to this degree. It sure seems like she's trying constantly to generate headlines of "Kate Spotted Shopping" when all other ideas are exhausted...but this one IS exhausted and they need to come up with something new. If anybody is as busy as Kate would have us believe, they generally will plan their shopping route and shopping errands so as not to doubleback and instead combine the tasks to use the time effectively. The only other conclusion about shopping, shopping and MORE shopping is that even Kate is bored with Kate, has too much time on her hands, no hobbies, no chores, no responsibilities like the rest of us...in which case, how can we feel sorry for her when she tries to describe herself as needing money, being a single and struggling mom, etc. ('cause, if you're on a budget and busy, you don't shop every day like Kate does!). She ought to do a rerun of everything she says and look at it from the audience's chair...how, over time now, so many of her comments and stories don't jive. I just think that all of her inconsistent statements are in such a scrambled pile by now, there's no way to get out from under it and have any credibility or continuity. Kate has dug herself into a big mess of words that are too hard to sort out. She might do herself a favor if she'd just disappear for awhile...take a long vacation...let everything simmer down and make a fresher start at something other than shopping and oratory.

Kia Ora said...

Probably Stevo went back home to NZ for a trip. Even though its winter there, Auckland, where he's from is a pretty mild winter. Plus, the air fare at this time of year, is as cheap as a cut lunch.

Elvira said...

For the record, Steve was on vacation around this time last year also. Could be it's normal for him.

Betty Boop said...

Why is there an assumption that Kate is getting free groceries from Whole Foods all of a sudden?

emschick1128 said...

More pics today of Kate out doing what she seems to do best.. shopping. She's wearing a strapless dress that looks like a combination beach towel, patchwork quilt and a sewing project I made in 7th grade. I must add also that her "good bra" is doing quite a job supporting those boobs. I really think she is just bored all the time that's why she's seen shopping every day. Everything else is done for her therefore the "busy single mom" has lots of spare time to kill. No friends, no family, no apparent hobbies or get togethers to attend. What a sad life and miserable person she must be inside. She can have her millions and her big house. I don't envy her one bit. I think once no one has any interest in her she is not going to handle it well. God help those poor kids.

Tami said...

Why is there an assumption that Kate is getting free groceries from Whole Foods all of a sudden?

Why else would she suddenly go there, advertise it and even start using reusable bags? Before it was Target Target Target. Now this. It will be mentioned on her next show. Watch.

Tami said...

About the lack of pics in NY: WHERE were her pics with her "best friend" Evan? He claimed he was texting her and they had to get together in NY one of these days. Guess she was not a priority, huh?

fidosmommy said...

Why is there an assumption that Kate is getting free food? Because the mother of a GWoPer got that scoop from a store employee.
Why is it an assumption it's Whole Foods? That is truly an assumption. My assumption is that it's Giant Foods. They gave the family something like $5,000 in free food when the babies were born. They may have extended that.

Re: Kate on roof with the screens.
That looked a bit precarious for a woman who was terrified to go up in a cherry picker with Steve (the solar panel guy). She had no protection whatsoever, but there she was..... either she got some
therapy to help her with her phobia or.... well, you know.

ViewTubeKate said...

Please go see the View's pre-show clip at http://theview.abc.go.com/video/viewtube-kate-gosselin-friday-preview

First half Kate is all giggles and acts cute/coy. Halfway through, Bill Geddies actually says that she "has that reputation of being a little bit mean, a little bit nasty".

Then watch the brakes as Kate drops her smile and says "whatever". Her inner bitch comes out again on tape!!! Priceless.

Ohio Buckeye said...

@Fido's Mommy: Also recall the OBX episode, where K8G 'couldn't' climb the stairs to the top of the lighthouse for her paralyzing fear of heights.

Her phobias sure seem hit and miss. Convenient even, one might say.

The woman, the show: all total B.S.

Vanessa said...

Ok Bill Geddie, get a grip!
And why would you have to defend her behaviour? Why is it everyone has to "clear up" some of the misconceptions? Why do these stories of her "being a mean person" (more like b%$#h) follow her wherever she goes? Bill, maybe do some research on your guests, like you said, you don't really know MUCH about her.
Oh, and there WILL be some kind of "dating" show for her, just WAY too many discussions/questions about it.
-driven, A-type personality? WHAT exactly have you done???? WHAT have you excelled at???? Please tell me? What have you accomplished??? I don't know, most "DRIVEN, TYPE-A" people I know are sucessful ON THEIR OWN MERIT, not off the backs of their children. Everything you profess to be GREAT at, you either STINK at it, STEAL it, or you have someone ELSE do it for you!

Lorrie said...

I believe Kate's recent love for Whole Foods is stemming from a need to remind everyone of her good, organic mommy image. Too much common, pedestrian junk being purchased at Target and Giant Foods does not an earth mother make. She was probably told to get herself over to Whole Foods, pronto, and make sure she was seen buying healthy foods for the kids.

If I were Steve's wife I'd be wanting alone time with him too to explain what all the Tabloid "smoke" is about and if there is "fire".

I see these as 2 totally separate issues. The store where the mother sees her getting free stuff--to me this is some local grocery that has always given them freebies. I could be wrong, but that's how I take it. The free Whole Foods--Yes, I believe Whole Foods just now suddenly started giving her freebies when approached about being on her upcoming show and wanting to have tons of free advertisement. She is promoting them, that is certain. She has said their name in interviews and only does that when promoting something. Otherwise she refuses to give them credit (if they won't sponsor her and give her freebies). Look how she called Cool Whip 'that whipped topping that is frozen'. lol. I don't believe the mother saw her getting the freebies at WF though.

Protect8 said...

As Canadian Mom suggested:

"I know narcissists consciously scheme, but after awhile, don't they just run on 'auto-pilot'?"

Yes. And keep in mind that Narcissists quickly believe their lies or don't even see them as lies. By the time she answers the fake boobs question a couple of times she will have started to believe her lie.

Another great example on The View was when Kate jumped in to "clear up" a rumor about painted abs during the spray tan segment. Me, me, me.

Think of how hard and damaging this "it's all about me" is to a child growing up. Unless it is about Kate, Kate is not interested. Remember the sad "Mommies for a Day" episode where Kate pretty much set the twins up for failure? She seemed to enjoy that the twins couldn't manage the younger children. And at the end of the day she asked one of the little girls who is the better mommy then looked greatly satisfied to be reassured by the answer. Disgusting.

Kate's job as a mother, and Jon's as a father, was to make the older girls feel successful.

Narcissistic mothers bite deep.

Yolanda said...

Strange...when you go to the View website, you can no longer view last Friday's episode.

And when you click on "Read More" I get the following message:

"Unfortunately we couldn't find the page you are looking for. Click here to go to The View homepage"

All the other episodes for last week are there...but not Friday's.

Am I missing something?

sheaintallthat said...

Re: Today's ROL photos of Kate.

Interesting how in the close back ground of the one photo there is a lady who appears to be loading her groceries in the back of her vehicle. The woman is not phased by and has zero interest/ awareness of Kate Gosselin and the presence of the 'paparazzi'.

Glenda said...

Who else thinks that on the episode with her on the roof she will make derogatory comments about the solar panels? I bet she even mentions taking them down. Also did she schedule enough time for these projects? In the solar panel episode she complained it was taking to long and she wished they would stay on schedule like they were suppose to.

the left one said...

Remember the question: ARE THEY YOURS?
-----------------------------------
Gosh what an open question. Since she proably has a receipt it shouldn't have been too hard to say "yes". It wouldn't be exactly lying but...


receipt? she probably had a freaking BOGO coupon!

Ohio Buckeye said...

Wonder if "Nature Girl's" new love of evergreens has anything to do with an attempt to keep more secret just how many hours the kids are filmed?
************************
Buckeye,
I'm with you on this one. I think the tree planting is all about filming. How many times have we seen Kate and the kids outside with the cameras rolling? We've had a pretty good idea of what will be on upcoming shows (i.e., the chicken coop). With a barrier in place, filming can be done with no one knowing the "plot" ahead of time. I don't for a minute believe the trees are intended to give the kids more privacy or protection.

ToTheMoonAlice said...

Whoa...Check out Radaronline...Not only do we get to see most of Frankenkreider's boobs, we get to see most of her butt, too! (And don't tell me she didn't know the paps were out there with their zoom lenses!!!)

Hippie Chick said...

@ emschick...I completely agree that Kate should just own up to the boob job. Why not? She may have just been hassled for a few days or so, but then it would be over with. Now, she is trapped in another whopper of a lie that she will no doubt have to backtrack about. She is a piece of work.
And please don't say that 4 kids doesn't compare to 8 kids! 4 kids is A LOT of work and I think it's amazing that you do it!! I only have one, and that's a lot, for me anyways!! lol I give you props for having 4 kids, & from your posts, you sound like a kind & caring mother, something Kate knows nothing about.

It's an upcoming episode that she is already busted for. she had to pull over and ask a pap for directions on how to get there.

When the epi airs ("We just love Whole Foods and they love us. I shop there all the time, I insist my kids eat organic. What does that mean again?") GWoPers will recall that is was all a fake set-up as usual, but the sheeple will fall for it.

isn't this the same nut who wouldn't let her kids go barefoot in a hotel room? They're running barefoot around a chicken coop with the chickens. With, no doubt, plenty of chicken poo between their toesies. So what's worse, a freshly cleaned hotel floor or chicken poo? Yuck.

I agree you with so much on this and also how it applies to anything she does. Most people are honest and like true honesty. For instance, she'd be much more relatable if she'd say something like, "I do the filming because it gives us opportunities to do things and travel which make great memories for my kids and, of course, the money's not bad either." Just be honest. Viewers appreciate it. If Kate's reality is a continual lie, how does she know where truth lives?

Yes Protect8! I think that Kate makes her own 'truths'. Like she is so 'beyond' the rest of the world, that whatever she says is, thus, truth.

Truly scary. Can't imagine having 8 pubescent teens to argue who's 'truth' is right. My experience from raising a teen is that he generally thinks HE is right most the time. I have to choose my 'battles'. Kate, on the other hand, never lets anything go.
Should make for a hostile home...

sad to need so much attention said...

I saw some of those bikini photos of Kate (nude-colored cloth) and it just makes me wonder who writes that stuff of her having this terrific bikini bod 'cause, man, I'm not seeing it! There's no graceful beauty there in my humble opinion, but...whatever floats the boat. Funny, how times change I guess but, when I was a kid, on vacation with the family, seeing Mom and Dad in their bathing suits, we couldn't stop laughing. If my mother had paraded around in an itsybitsy bikini, I think I would have wished for the earth to open up and swallow me in utter embarrassment. (And my folks were a really nice-looking couple!)

I know I shouldn't be clicking on photos when bored but what a contrast when you see some of the other legitimate celebs during their holiday...there's Jennifer Garner with her Affleck cuties just sitting on a parade route, enjoying the 4th. You don't see her calling attention to herself...she's just got a cap on with sunglasses and a normal tee-shirt.

Kate has either let her fans go to her head or she's extremely insecure to let herself be photographed from the property line or out in public while shopping, wearing these ridiculous costumes of hers. I live in sun country/resort locale and only see the younger women wearing the short-short skirts and plunging necklines...and even they don't wear this stuff paired with hooker heels! I go to the same stores Kate does in my area and no woman in her mid-30s that I share a checkout line with ever looks like Kate, no matter what kind of a bodyshape/figure. Kate just looks ridiculous as she tries so hard to find that spotlight. Okay, so age is just a number and women should be able to be unique and dress how they want but, in so doing, expect a few comments not-so-positive if you're daring to be that much different. We all have to live in the world and sometimes age-inappropriateness is invasive to other people's space!

Does Kate ever have the kids wear appropriate foot wear or is it always Crocs or flip flops that she probably gets for 2 for $5.00 at Old Navy. Who wants to be running through an airport adult or child in flip flops?
==========================
I wonder about this, too. My parents were so careful to buy me good, secure shoes when I was growing up even when they couldn't afford it. As an adult, I've been living in croc-style shoes and flip flops for the past ten years and the flip flops at least have done my feet no good.

jasmine said...

Are the solar panels even on the roof anymore? I remember seeing a photo from last year that looked like they were on the ground near the driveway. Maybe they were removed after the episode aired. So now Kate's climbing up on her roof changing screens in heels and a mini skirt. Next, she'll be wearing a bikini repairing shingles and staging paparazzi photo shoots from her roof.

Wonder Bra Bikini said...

"Of COURSE her Stevie Boy was there this day! Why else would she wear this tiny bikini:"

So Chris, the pap, can continue to drool over her well-toned body?

Monster Mommy said...

So Steve is back then. Purse boy seems more like a high-paid assistant, than an actual bodyguard. That title just makes Kate feel more important- which she clearly is not. I mean, none of the locals care when she's alone, shopping at Target on a daily basis. Steve "The Assistant"... helps with planning and attending parties ('cause let's face it... Kate has no real friends), wiping the boys' hinnies, coaxing Kate 'out of the closet'- during her one and only new book signing, advising on the landscaping and giving "hands-on" advice about what size fake boobies to get. Not at all the duties of a true bodyguard. Steve's sole function, morphed into "the help", the minute Jon left the garage apartment.

I also think it's sick that Kate lied again about the house being for the kids. If that were true- Jon would not be reduced to picking them up at the gate, way out there on the roadside. Sadly, her mind is quite warped, I say!

Yolanda said...

I posted about this earlier, and I'm surprised nobody here has commented on this.

I think this is a BIG thing. Last Fridays episode - Kate's episode - has been pulled from the View's website. It's not there. All the other shows from last week are there, but not Friday's show.

Not only that...but all the posts about Kate on the message board have also been pulled. I remember there being a thread about Kate being the host - it's no longer there!

Anyway - I think this is really interesting. Why wouldn't Kate's show be there any more? Maybe she did so bad, they decided not to make it available.

Your thoughts on this???

Of COURSE her Stevie Boy was there this day! Why else would she wear this tiny bikini:

http://celebrity-gossip.net/kate-gosselin/photo/kate-gosselin-1075

honest to goodness, I have seen so many bigfoot photos that look just like this photo of Kate in this bikini. The same stride, with the same arm movement and everything. Do you think it has been her all along?

Anne said...

Lordy bee we must be prudes here in the Midwest. We were at a pool party this weekend and none of the moms, even those with smoking hot bodies (surgically enhanced which they readily admit)wore bikinis that skimpy. Only a couple of the teenage girls went that skimpy.

Talk about desperate for attention. Yikes!

readerlady said...

Remember a year or so ago, there was an episode of the show where Khate told the kids that if your belly button was showing you were naked? Wonder how she now explains to them that it's okay for Mommy to be naked in the yard and at the beach and be photographed for magazines and tabloids that way? I also wonder how she manages to rationalize that it was somehow inappropriate for the 7/8 year old twins to wear a 2 piece (and very modest) bathing suit in public, but it's okay for her to show nearly everything.

Gaby2 said...
It would have been more interesting to see a photo of her drive way to see what cars were there.

One?

We know Kate shops every day, pumps her OWN gas and struts around the Konpound in her 'revenge body' bikini. Where's the photos of the WHO's WHO that attended this ROL headlining party of America's most famous 'ratings grabber' mom.

Sharon said...

I was just watching Cake Boss, I happen to like that show, but I think Buddy is becoming a lot like Kate. I think it's the effects of being in the TLC cult. Anyway, every 15 minutes there was a commercial about the new Kate plus 8 show. Through the whole commercial all you hear is Kate shreeking and doing that stupid scream that she does. I finally gave up on Cake Boss because I could take another minute of her screaming. Who in their right mind finds this entertaining. That woman just makes me want to throw up.

kate can't do sh** said...

Those recent photos of Kate on ROL. The ones that look like she is running in her yard with her sexy little bikini on (to tease Stevie boy no doubt). They remind me of that famous footage that someone caught years ago of a Sasquatch running through the forest.

Vexatious said...

On Showbiz Tonight, the plastic surgeon of Heidi says that Heidi is a hero for being honest about all of her recent plastic surgery. Since Kate obviously admires and is modeling herself after this twenty-something girl, then maybe she'll admit to the obvious surgery she's had. I just wish some journalist would make a name for him/herself exposing Kate for what she is.

Aislinn said...

Why is this even newsworthy in the UK? Are TLC shows being aired there?

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1292381/Kate-Gosselins-tan-turns-bright-shade-orange.html

"Time to ease up on the tanning, Kate Gosselin! Reality star turns a bright shade of orange

She loves tanning so much that she spent her sextuplets' fifth birthday - which was also Mother's Day - bronzing at her local salon.
But it seems she's taken her well-documented beauty routine just a little too far.

The star of Kate Plus 8 looked a rather frightful shade of orange as she stocked up on supplies in Wernersville, Pennsylvania, ahead of a July 4 party.

Even her multi-coloured summer frock was put in the shade by her bright skin tone.
While her tan may be fake, she recently insisted that in most other areas she's the real deal.

During an interview on The View last week, the mother of eight laughed off speculation she has had a boob job and Botox.
'Girls, come on! I do it every week. Don't we all?!' she joked, when quizzed about going under the knife. 'No, seriously. I've had a tummy tuck. We all know that.'

When pressed about whether she has had breast enhancement too, she replied: 'I got a good bra! Botox, absolutely not. Boobs, no. Tummy tuck, yes.'

She added: 'I run every day. I work out. I'm healthy. I want to look as good as I can because when you look good, you feel good.'"

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

OMGROFL! This is too funny, it's exactly what those pics look like. Well, she does have that big toe & so many have commented on how sturdy she's built. On the drawings of bigfoot's they don't have a waist either. I guess kate would be the more outgoing of that species, she has no problem being caught on film.

Ah yes, the rare hairless, fake breasted, south-eastern Pennsylvania bigfoot. Noted for the selling of it's offspring to cable networks, orange hide, poor taste in clothing, penchant for all things plastic surgery & cell phone use in calling photogs. We think it may have a language but so far is too garbled too understand. Note: Unfriendly to humans so do not approach. Beware the wonky eye!


Monster Mommy said...
So Steve is back then. Purse boy seems more like a high-paid assistant, than an actual bodyguard.
------------

Ah yes, Frankenkrieder & her grotty little minion, Purse Boy with his rat like claws. Wonder if she sits up in her mansion & cackles. Hmm, that could be an interesting idea for a comic strip.

Kate-go-away said...

Funny how kate is wearing her hair pulled all the way back off her forehead after the bangs-covering-the-forehead look she was sporting on The View. She must have gotten her "problem" fixed.

As for her "hot bikini shots" - if she's going to flaunt herself I'm going to critique it. It looks like her legs have gotten more muscular - she has pretty defined hamstrings - but they are short and look kind of like guys legs. I think she has good arms - its her torso that is so freaky! It is so thick - it doesn't curve in - and that wierd belly button! I guess that's the result of the tummy tuck.

We know you read this,kate. Try a one piece bathing suit. You would look so much better. It would cover up your freaky looking torso and if it had high cut legs your legs would look longer and not so stocky.

Why is Mommy Orange? said...

@ K8STFU...

Yep... Me too! Why IS Mommy Orange? My favorite moment of the night is when I logged on, intending to use the temporary handle... "Kreider, Party of One" and someone else took it minutes before me!

I love it. I think I'll start using "Kate is Enough" now, as my alternate alias.

MickeyMcKean said...

To: Kate or Jon

There is a photo posted where 2 of the kids are at the new coop with the chickens.

It looks like the kids are not wearing any footwear of any kind - the kids are barefoot in the coop area.

IMHO chickens are dirty birds and no child should be walking around without any kind of footwear. So whereas I think it is a good thing that the kids have this coop and can gather eggs, etc., everyone must also must be aware that there are health concerns too.

JMO.

maggie said...

Remember how Kate just planted those huge trees to blocks the paps. Well, you can see the photos of the trees on her property at: smalltowngosselins blog. It is funny that the trees were just planted and the next day the paps caught her (or she let them on her property) and took the pictures of her half naked in that bikini.

I use to watch Cake Boss too. But there is no way Buddy is like Katie. He is "the boss" and he has to do what he has to do to get work done. Also, he unlike Katie actually has talent.

As for Kate's shreaking, what's new? She has no talent, nothing to offer. So to get the attention or the camers directed to her, no matter how pathetic and lame, she makes those stupid shreaking noise. "Look at me".

For a 35 year old to act like that... I don't know what to say.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
GrannyofTwo!
Your description of the bikini clad Kate lumbering through her bushes as seeming suspiciously like photos we've seen of Bigfoot over the years has me in stitches!
That is just priceless, because it's true! All she needed to do was turn her head toward the camera and it would be indentical to the film shot in the 50's or 60's that's never really been disproven.
If I may continue to speculate, this would account for her high pitched screech, which is also typical of Bigfoot.
We may need to bring in a cryptozoologist to see if they they are thought to give birth to mutiple young.
The only problem I can see with your theory, Granny, is that Bigfoot is known to be shy and reclusive.
However, this wouldn't rule her out as some kind of hybrid.
If she came out and admitted she was part-bigfoot, even I would watch that show. I do think she should move in with the Roloffs for that show, as Bigfoot seems more Northwestern. And you know Matt would get a kick out of it.
Thanks, Granny! You are hilarious!

Vanessa said...
@ Reading Native,
Now THAT pisses me off! WHY is she still getting free stuff? Can you tell us what store this was? Target?
___________

No, it's at Giant. According to our family friend, they were instructed when she comes in to drop everything they're doing, open a separate checkout line for her, and give her everything for free.

I don't know if I mentioned this before, but my aunt also had a run-in with her freebie-grubbing self. She works at Toyota and was there when Kate came in to get her new car a while back. After she left, my aunt's manager was fuming because Kate had the gall to actually ask if she could have a brand new car for free. He said, "If anything, I'm gonna charge her more because I can't stand her!"

TinBox said...

Ms. Honesty is the Best Policy should have fessed up on the View.

First, when Joy grilled her, she should have admitted to having the boob job.

Second, during the tanning segment, she should have fessed up that she was a tanning bed addict. She had the nerve to call tanning beds "fake and bake" when she has been photographed frequenting those establishments!

Kate is the ultimate Faked and Baked Flake!!!

Lorrie said...

If Kate was so adamant about NOT having implants, Joy or Whoopie should have asked her to go to her dressing room and remove the "good bra" -- then come out and show everyone what a HUGE difference it makes.

The language police said...

"Second, during the tanning segment, she should have fessed up that she was a tanning bed addict. She had the nerve to call tanning beds "fake and bake" when she has been photographed frequenting those establishments!"

Proving just what an idiot she is. "Fake and bake" doesn't refer to tanning beds. It refers to spray tans. Does someone have her address? I think we need to send her a dictionary.

Did Kate give the manager a reason why she should be given a free car?
Like she had bought a lemon from that dealership the year before and wanted a decent car now?
Just wondering. To say that was presumptious of her is an understatement. Oh, yeah, it seems to be the MO for Kate.

PaMa said...

Do we actually know that Kate uses a tanning bed? Surely she became accustomed to spray tanning during her stretch on DWTS (if not before)and I've always thought that she just continued the spray tans with her frequent visits to her local tanning establishment.

TinBox said...

IMO, the debate of 'did she or didnt she' wouldnt even exist if it werent for the OBVIOUS. The subject of Kate's breast size wasnt even a topic of discussion some 4+ years ago when the J & K reality show made its television debut. It doesnt require a cosmetic surgeon to compare Kate's before ie Key West/vow renewal Hawaii tankini wearing to 'after' ie post break up in NC/recent bikini party teenie bikini bathing suit photos to confirm the OBVIOUS. It's not like Kate suggested a 'maybe I did', 'maybe I didnt' only my hairdresser knows for sure. She told a BOLD FACE lie!

********
My 19 year old will wear a bikini that is fairly small. But she has enough modesty/brains to not RUN around a house like that. And when nowhere near the water she will wear a towel or a coverup of some sort just so she does not look like an exibitionist letting it all hang out.

Tami said...

I know I shouldn't be clicking on photos when bored but what a contrast when you see some of the other legitimate celebs during their holiday...there's Jennifer Garner with her Affleck cuties just sitting on a parade route, enjoying the 4th. You don't see her calling attention to herself...she's just got a cap on with sunglasses and a normal tee-shirt.
************
There were also pics of Gwen Stefani in a party store on the 4th with her kids. She was wearing normal clothes and flip flops. Real stars don't have a need to parade in hooker clothes for run of the mill errands.

path said...

The next special will feature "cousin Oliver" to bring the cuteness factor back to Kate plus 8. Oh will mayhem and fun ensue then!!!!

Sharla said...

To the commenter who became snippy over her comment not going through, the first one was still sitting in the queue when your second quite snippy one came through. That is why the first one was also rejected. It may be noon on the east coast but it's only 9 AM here. :) When all the other mods are working or volunterring, the morning comments have to wait until I get up and feel ready to face the computer.

couch potato said...

Sharla and others,

I want you to know how much we all appreciate you volunteers for giving us GWOP.

You all give comic relief to my poor little couch potato life and a place to vent went my T.V. gives me wimpy shows like Kate plus Eight to watch. Not to mention the pitiful guest appearances by Kate, and the awful promos of Kate by TLC. It makes me sick and my T.V. is sick too.

Some times the posts are slow, and I think some of them do get lost somehow. But I don't really care, cause that's when I go to You Tube and laugh at the parodies and clips of Kate. Eventually the posts show up, and in the rare event they get lost, if it was important, I can always post it again the next day.

Thanks again taking time out to man GWOP.

Honesty is the Best Policy said...

I will be first in line to buy Jon's book as well for friends and relatives. Sounds like it is going to be a book of substance as opposed to fluff. There is just so many ways you can try and re-write Beth's book - only she could make it a bestseller and I couldn't even finish it because of its subject matter.

HonestKate said...

If anyone can give me a list of businesses (in Reading or surrounding towns) that still give Kate freebies then I will write and call to express my displeasure.

They need to know that what they are doing will end up tarnishing the reputation of their own company. Any association with Kate is bad publicity for a business.

Those establishments should give to a real charity. Why does she act as if she "needs" free stuff?

________________________

No, no reason like that. Apparently, the request was pretty out of the blue. I think it's just her modus operandi to try to get everything for free. And it didn't work that time.

This was told to me about 2 months ago by a family friend who is a current store employee as something they currently do. It seems people don't know about it because they open the separate checkout lane for her, giving the illusion that she is paying for her items. Again, this was two months ago, and I haven't talked to the person since, so I don't know if things have changed since then (but I doubt it). I will try to find out.

Monster Mommy said...

Go Sharla! I live on the West Coast too- so I can appreciate your comment... This isn't ROL, thank God. Patience is a virtue, my dear poster.

Speaking of Radar Online... I just read the story about Jon's new book! *Rubbing my hands together*... I bet it outsells "Letters to my mini ATMs". Dig DEEP Jon, and I will buy it.

As for 'Cousin Oliver'- Sadly, Kate doesn't allow the Gosselin children to play with their cousins, or any other extended family members.

path said...

It is obvious IMO Kate did not get the boob job(s) & the botox done gratis. If she did, there would be papparazzi pics of her coming and going to the medical office with special focus on the signage!

Can't Believe Everything said...

The policy re: Kate may vary from store to store but I know a Giant cashier and Kate was paying for her groceries at least up until a year or so ago. No special line was opened for her either. In the very beginning Giant gave her some gift cards and that seems to be where all the rumors of free shopping at Giant started.

path said...

I guess I am showing my age!!!! That is an ouchy!! When I referred to "cousin Oliver", I was talking about the cute little boy with blonde hair and glasses who was on the Brady Bunch's last episodes. His character was brought in when the other kids were older and not so cute.

I thought the kid who played "cousin Oliver", Robbie Rister, eventually did porn, but he is actually quite successful. He is in a band and does voiceover work including Teenage Muntant Ninja Turtles. I gladly stand corrected.

Gaby2 said...

About the View.

I think we got to see KKate acting. This was NOT her normal self.

She was trying HARD to be "cute" and funny. Her smiles were fake. Looked like she practiced her "mannerisms" before a mirror.

She knows her normal self has been rejected by people...and now she is trying too hard to be nice. YUCK.

She is completely unauthentic.

NT said...

Just a heads up! Kaite's golden pen was at work again on her "blog". All about a friend she has from NYC that is a makeup artist. She came and painted the kids faces. Cara got stung by a bee on her lip. Yawn!!!!

jasmine said...

If Kate is still receiving free groceries from a local Giant food store, maybe a there is a particular store manager working when she shops who allows her to go through the checkout without paying. She could receive free groceries when this manager is working and other times would have to pay.

The Kate/bigfoot comments are funny. Were there any photos taken or sitings of Steve and his family at her 4th of July backyard party? She may have been partying with just her kids, her chickens and her one pap buddy who was a last minute invite.

Skywatcher said...

OK-Just looked at the pictures on celebrity-gossip.net and how can someone who claims to have lost 10 pounds in so many days, look a little thick in the middle? Also, I am a breast cancer survivor and I am in the middle of reconstruction surgery (again). I can tell you from my experience, she has had a boob job. I have one that is mine and one that isn't. Not to be too gross, but the 'girls' don't sit up that high on your chest at 35 unless your have had a little help from the medical world. I just don't understand why she lies so much!!! GRRR

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

Or could he be writing it to try & counter what's in the Al Walentis book? Remember he's under contract with TLC. This could be just more manipulation by them. After all they know a book put out by kate isn't likely to gain much attention by the naysayers & certainly won't be purchased after the recent book fiasco, when kate's book plummeted faster than a concrete balloon.

If he did it to try & break away I'm sure TLC will be unleashing the lawyers on him. They'd come up with some reason to separate him from money earnt. I'm doubting kate will get anything negative said about her, this book is probably being done with TLC's blessing.

Captain of the Titanic said...

I've been thinking about this report about Kate getting her groceries free at Giant Eagle. Maybe TLC has an open account there since now that they are filming again, the crew probably is provided some meals. They may just allow Kate to get her groceries out of that same account as part of her contract.

Ohio Buckeye said...

I agree with the poster who basically said 'we all need to find that INVISIbra of K8G's, because Lordie Be, that thing is MAGIC. That's one fantastic bra K8 found - AND it disappears whenever a top requires it, yet the girls stand at attention even without the invisibra.

Also agree with the poster who explained how narcissists quickly begin to believe their own lies.

So, K8's 'girls' stand up and salute on their own, with no extra help except for that 'really good bra'? Yeah, sure, just like K8G has always done her own child care, housework, authoring of books, house and yard maintenance ON HER OWN.

Uh huh.

Ohio Buckeye said...

"Cara got stung by a bee on her lip."

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

Wanna bet that the bee was aiming for K8?

Wonder if K8 'had time' to care for Cara this time, UNLIKE when Cara injured her foot but K8G announced they were too busy to go get it xrayed.

Yep, award-winning mothering going on in Pennsylvania.

Brummygirl said...

@Can't See Sheep.
I was just about to post the same thing before I read your post.
I doubt whether Jon can afford to slag Kate, as he is still receiving money from T.L.C.
He has been up against the giants once and not likely to anger them again!
Everyone has been waiting for a "tell all" book. He should have done it in the beginning before the *gag* order.
Hmmm...fame and fortune does nothing for the character of a man. He gave in once, not likely to repeat that.

If Jon is still under contract with TLC, if and when he does write, publish, and release a book, I dont foresee the book being the 'tell all' that many are hoping it will be. IMO, the book will be more of a book about Jon's journey from husband to father of multiples to 'reality star' and the trials and tribulations of HIS life as 'it' relates to HIM specifically past thru present day. IMO, the book will be more of a 'personal growth' story as opposed to a 'tell all'.

Just a note about the missing link. One reason they could not cmpletely rule that out as hoax is beause when they suited people up, to test it, the walk was very hard to duplicate and no one could quite get it. It was the lean that was hard to duplicate. Perhaps KK has a talent afterall.

No one is interested, Jon. A couple months with another person claiming they can save you..That does not make you an expert in anything. We don't care! You are never going to tell the truth and that is what people REALLY want to hear. She has already sold you out again and again so I fail to see how you feel any guilt.

Vanessa said...

Back to the free groceries at Whole Foods, is this supposed to be good PR? Wouldn't it make more sense to donate food to low income families, people who are out of work, school breakfast programs? Make sure THAT makes the tabloids/newspapers? The same must have happening at Target because only that would explain the "escort" to her car in all those pics. (haven't seen her at Target in awhile...hmmm)


The denial of botox and boobs reminds me of the article she and Jon tried to recant from days ago.
Remember the writer said that after the interview, Kate called her up and told her not to print it? That she wanted her to take some things out...that going ahead with the article would basically be taking formula out of her babies' mouths!?
Well, she really can't admit to any "comsemtic" procedures other than ones she received for free.
Then it would look like SHE'S taking food out of her kids mouths.
She is living very well, and being paid very well, there is no need to keep the facade alive.
It reminds me of "some" social assistance mothers (I know, they are NOT all like that) I see in our town who go through their monthly checks, spending it on smokes, booze, drugs, bingo...BEFORE they feed their kids. Those are the kids that are ususally at my kid's school breakfast program. I know to some of you it seems like comparing apples to oranges, but I hope you get my drift.
The scary part is that after all this...ALL OF THIS...that there will be no money left for the kids...Gary Coleman? And most disgusting of ALL would be if there is no money for college!! That would be the biggest slap in the face to her kids!

Called "The Secret World of Jon and Kate: The Stupidest Story in the History of the Universe and the People Who Covered It".

Pretty great title, if you ask me.

Khate can't be the missing link. She looks less human than the rest of the chain! She's a throwback from WAY back!

The comments about jibberjabbers completely brilliant chart are making me giggle almost as much as the original.

Like Tami, I notice that the sasqwate (say it out loud!) is far less erect than the neanderthal.

Thanks jibberjabbers-you're the bomb! And thanks to all the posters creating a daisy-chain of laughter.

And the mods for doing all the hard work of maintaining our little playground of the mind.

Good news! The book we've (well,some of us anyway) been waiting for is here. Al Walentis' book, "The Secret World of Jon and Kate: The Stupidest Story In the History of the Universe and the People Who Covered It" went up on Smashwords this morning. For those of you not familiar with Smashwords, it's a site that sells e-books. Those of you who have e-readers can go there and buy it (it's available in all formats). Those of you who don't have an e-reader can go there and read a sample on line, or you can go to Amazon or Barnes and Noble and download their free computer app. and then purchase the book and download it to your computer. I skimmed several pages online and it sounds like no one comes out looking good, including the paps and the so-called "legitimate" media. The link is http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/18322.

PATHETIC if it is indeed in the front yard!!

For a few years when I was a kid, we lived in New Hampshire. When we moved in, there was a chicken coop in the front yard. Even though we were at the end of a dirt road on the outskirts of town, my mom declared the chicken coop "too hillbilly even for me" (LOL) and set about relocating it. Siting it took wind direction and foot traffic patterns into account--we wanted to keep the smell and the dropping-dust out of the house.

I have to say that the kids walking around the coop area in bare feet freaks me out a little. There's one place where KG's RN training in infection control might actually apply.

I understand why people want a tell-all from Jon but that would be a horrible thing for him to do. Kate remains his children's mother and trashing her in a book (no matter how truthful) would hurt the kids.

I have seen kids go through ugly divorces where the parents say horrible things about each other to the kids. It tears kids apart. No matter how they feel about the parent being trashed, they also think -"I am a part of Mommy. If Daddy hates Mommy so much, does he hate parts of me too."

The best thing Jon could do for the kids is to not disparage their mother in public. Kate's comeuppance should not come by Jon's hand for the sake of their children.

The Secret Life of Jon & Kate by Al Walentis is now available for purchase. You can read the first 35 pages here

I have a feeling Jon's book will be another woe-is-me type book like Kate cranks out, about how the kids made his life so hard and miserable and how he "lost" his twenties. I believe he will attempt to make excuses as to why he went nutso once he and Kate split ( again, the "I lost my twenties" lame story ).

Please Jon, no more books about how hard it is to raise 8 kids. You chose to have them, we already heard that song and dance 3 times from Kate's book about how hard it is, and your kids probably already feel responsible for your and Kate's issues.

Snerk said...

Before everyone goes wild about Jon's alleged book, E News says it was just another Radar of Lies rumor stated as fact.

Ok Jibbers...I need a new name...wonder how long before someone uses:

Cro-Magnon Kate?

Hey, we all know she was from the Flintstone's era (OMG, those FEET)...this all makes sense!

Sorry for the typos in my last post, I hate when I miss them!

At the end of the day, I think it must be sad to be Kate. Imagine never being able to talk freely because 90% of what you have to communicate is a manufactured lie and a ruse you're trying to pull off. And then you have to be ordered around by PR people and TLC execs all the time to carry out their newest strategy or media campaign.

You even have to agree to debasing stories leaked to the press just to keep your name out there. It's all part of the plan, kid. No worries. You're a stranger to your kids, they like their father better. You have no one to really talk with who knew you way back when because your "job" and your exaggerated sense of self importance alienated you from the ones who care about you, even your own mother.

Every move you make has to be part of a strategy. Someone has to coach you with how you respond to everything because you've dug yourself in so deeply. You've suckered the public for a while, but it has faded. You get calls from higher ups every time you mess up, and most of the world sees you as a bad parent and a joke of a person. Your only group of supporters is an off-base, angry, grubby group of people whose grip on the world is scary.

Some of this has to sink in. And at the end of the day, after all you've given up, you realize that when you're on a show like The View or the Paula Deen gig you wanted so badly, you have not one interesting thing to say. You come off looking like a fool, and deep down, you know this ain't going to last forever. Your people are grasping at straws to keep you afloat, and when the money dries up, they'll all be gone.

What does it feel like to look in the mirror and be Kate Gosselin? I really would not want to know.

Hmmm...

Interesting take on this.

I think that I might feel a bit sorry for Kate if I didnt think that this was a dilberate plan that she has executed from the begining.

I do think that there is the potential for her to POSSIBLY, maybe question her actions... but i really do strongly think that she is such a narcissist that she really does believe her own lies.

She believes the fake world that has been created for her by PR people and employees of TLC and everyone else that makes $$ off her.

I dont think that theres anything left inside of her thats human. I dont think that theres anything inside her that is sad or qiestions what goes on around her.

If there was, shed change soemthing for the better.

I read the sample of the Al W. book on Smashwords. The first 30 pages or so just rehash stuff we already know and have heard. The whole book is over 200 pages. I am going to buy the online version ($10) to support Al and the anti Kate movement.

JibberJabbers - that is SO funny!

Has anyone seen Last Chance Highway on Animal Planet. An angel real estate agent rescues abused and neglected dogs and fosters them, gets them help and adopts them out to forever homes. She is an A Type personality but so unlike Khate. I wish she would visit the Konpound and rescue the Gosselin 8. The dogs she rescues are treated so much better than those kids. She has rescued thousands of dogs and knows every one by name and can tell you about their personalities. She is hands on, taking them to the vet, playing with them, feeding them, etc. She makes no money off of it and she works a full time job, has a husband and children. Like I said, nothing like Khate.

I read the sample of Al's book and want to purchase it. Does anyone know if there are any coupon codes out for it?

LOL< your current SN is perfect the way it is. I don't think anything can top KatesDirtyFlintstoneToes

As are the "the secret life of J7K", from what I read, it mostly things we already knew, but least a reference or a source is now provided.

It's a good read for those uninformed Kate worshipers. This exposes Jon AND Kate. Especially Kate for being the fraud and super bitch she is.

Giving Jon a $5 a day allowance and storming into Jon's office after his father was "late" delivering her food...

Stupid bitch drove to Jons office to complain about the food getting to her late instead of driving to a f**king drive thru or restaurant.

Wondered who watched the kids while she drove to bltch at Jon?

So Jon's father was late? Give him a break. Unlike Kate, he had a job.

Kitty The Dog's Blog said...

Okay, so I bought and am reading the Al W. book. So far (55 pages in) nothing new except: Kate is a nasty neighbor, she was rude to a neighbor who bought welcome cookies telling her to get off her property and when a neighbor introduced herself at the market, Khate said "I live on 23 acres, youre not my neighbor".

Al says (so far) says that orders to stake out in front of the Konpound were given by the tabloids and they were instructed to follow Khate to the market, target, UPS, etc. No word yet that she alerts them.

KansasBanana said...

I'm reading Al's book right now and noted an inconsistency with some posts earlier up in this thread. There are posts above stating that Kate asked the manager of the Toyota dealer if she could have her SUV for free (to which he said no). According to Al's book, TLC bought the Toyota as an anniversary present for Kate and that they bought Jon a motorcycle.

Too Bad TLC doesn't buy Kate farewell present. Like a year long trip to Timbukto.

***************************
I have often wondered if she regrets the place she is in now but I have come to the conclusion that she sees what she wants to see
that is, a celebrity.
Not for one minute do I think she questions WHY she is classed as a celebrity, most celebrities have a background in media, films etc and yes, authors.
Is she a successful author? In the eyes of her followers she is. As for any other claim to fame I have yet to see her successful at anything without including the children.
So, in a year from now, should we ask this question again, will her perceptions have changed?

emschick1128 said...

On the Gossip center web site there are some pics of Kate filming of course for a new episode at a train depot. Purse boy is of course in tow as well as BFF jamie. As usual Kate looks like she's ready to hit the streets and turn a few tricks. She's wearing a black halter top, black shorts and of course 4" strappy stilettos. What else would one wear to a train station!! She comes of looking desperate. I think the US Weekly poll at Mother's day when Kate got 0% of the votes for sexiest mom said it all. She just looks foolish and trashy.
