Here we are half way thru August and bloggers are still freely expressing negative opinions of Kate Gosselin.
What ever happened the self proclaimed Kate 'police' who declared that beginning in August 'it' was going to make the lives of any one who spoke negatively of Kate a living a hell?
*********************************
Well it went like this....picture the whistling music at the beginning of Gunsmoke......

*I hit town at the crack of dawn when the roosters began to crow in the Gosselin hen house.
I heard it on the GWOP grapevine, that "The Sheriff" was here to avenge Kicking Horse Kate!!
I checked my blow dryer blowing down the barrel a piece, a gal can't be too careful when meeting a Sheeple. At forty paces, I could whip the Sheriff's hair and extensions and send them back into the *80"s*.
They were cooking up early vittles in the saloon, twice fried K.G. meatloaf and salmonella chicken. The giveaway of the cook book, was not enough to entice me to eat.
A cowboy meandered along on a pony, herding some cattle and sheep to travel on the railway. His grey hair hung below his hat and as he rocked to and fro, the purse he carried swayed with him. The sheep’s protruding eyes blinked as they passed, nodding their shorn heads in possum style.
In the window of the Daily Dilemma, an advert for a special bra caught my eye. Darn if that thing is not a performer of miracles. I whipped out a sticky note to write down the details and stuck it on my derriere.
A flurry of dust caught my eye at the other end of town. As it grew nearer, the dust cloud grew bigger and out of it at great speed, came a Target trolley pushed by none other than……THE SHERIFF!!
She had 20 (count ‘em) bags of groceries in that there cart. Dorritos and crackers aplenty.
She came to a grinding halt and we faced each other at 20 paces, she snorting down her nose like an organic bull.
“How dare you rain insults on my idol” she hollered “she does it all for her kids, she works too!!”
I stood my ground and held my cool as she reached into one of the bags and pulls out an organic cucumber.
“Hmm…not too bright” I mutter, “she should have had a V8”!!
With feet apart, I hitched up my holster and withdraw my all powerful dryer with a turbo engine, a freebie from a guy I know!!
“This” I said “is from GWOP and 8 little kids” and I blew her and her cart way out of town.
Last time I heard, she had hitched a ride on the railway. Story was, it was in the car of the sheeple and she, like us, heard their bleating all the way to Mexico!!!*

LOL Brummy! Encore, encore!

Brummygirl-Your little ditty is so awesome! I have not had a big belly laugh like this is ages!Keep it up girl,I hope kate reads this,or one of her flunkies!

Catherine said...

Gwoppers are on a roll tonight!

Excellente' Brummygirl.

Bye bleating sheep. Have fun in Mexico. Hope you find your brains, or some character. If not, hope you meet up with a desperado...not to be confused with you hero, the Desperatita was it??

SwingsandRoundabouts said...

Brummy, I love it, especially "the purse he carried swayed with him." And the reference to the sticky note. Thanks for the laughs.

I admit I was kind of looking forward to more from Kate's spokepernon.

StoryLady said...

Brummy . . ."the purse he carried swayed with him" . . .
"This is from Gwop and eight little kids" . . .
You have outdone yourself! I can even picture a colorful western sky and hear the music in my head.
If you are not a professional writer, you might want to think about it. You are awesome.

she is evil said...

The Gosselin kids could sure use a vacation FROM THEIR MOTHER. So many trips in so short a time, all with cameras inches from their faces. Kate has managed to make traveling around the country unpleasant for her family; too much of it and all for the show, none of it for actual fun or relaxation. Sad thing is that those kids will find a full day of school plus two hours on the bus every day a vacation compared to their Dickensian summer with their prison matron mother.

Oh, and kids, don't worry. No one, not even a scary policeman, would marry your horrible bitch of a mother.

B R A V A, Brummygirl!
Sheeple, don't get laughs like this!

Aunt Chris said...

Brummygirl - excellent! Like any good storyteller, you had me picturing every scene, and hearing the whistling,too!

Brava!

Vanessa said...

Hmmm... maybe TLC should try and revamp Kate+8 and make it into Jon VS Kate, just like they did with OCC. Senior vs Junior premiered the other night. NO bike building, just lots of family dysfuntion, swearing, put downs, pettiness...I'm sure TLC has approached J&K with a similar idea.

MomIAm said...

I caught The View this week when Kate was guest hosting. Was it a repeat? I watched for a few minutes but changed the channel during the first segment as they were talking with her about her attitude on DWTS. She defended herself but all I heard was blah, blah, blah. Sherry and Elizabeth spoke up for her. Joy looked like she wasn't buying it, and even said something like you need to put on a good face in front of others no matter what else is going on behind the scenes. But then Joy slammed Jon as if he never lifted a finger around the house, ever. That is when I changed the channel.

Has anyone ever asked a simple question of those in the media about who cared for the kids when they were little? I missed most Gosselin episodes, but in the few I watched, Jon was usually working and Kate was complaining. She either sat watching the kids (not playing with them) or complained to Jon while he was working. Specific things I remember were her not liking the clothes he picked out for the kids, her complaining that he was taking too much time to put beds together or shelves up, her doing a lot of yelling and complaining and on and on.

Last weekend I saw a couple shows from a marathon of the Masche show. What I noticed was that both parents hug their kids and the kids were underfoot more than the Gosselin children. What I recall from the Gosselin show was Jon hugging kids more like the Masche's, while I don't recall Kate doing much touching/hugging. There were times when the Masche children were even sitting by Mom on the counter while she prepared food. That was a bit much, and I have a lot of other observations, which I won't go in to now. I don't know that I'll watch the show again, but I found the contrast interesting and Jon much more like them while my memory of Kate is of person who was distant and cold.

MomIAm said...

One more thing about her appearance The View: In the middle of the discussion about her bad attitude on DWTS, she threw in a comment about 30 weeks bed rest. I can't quote her but it made me laugh out loud. I'm so glad that I changed the channel and didn't watch more than the first few minutes. While I laughed, it was more of a disgusted reaction.

JoyinVirginia said...

Bravo, Brummy! LOVE how the blow dryer can push the shopping KART out of town!
Maybe the sheeple are more and more getting BORED with Ms. Shoppin Kart Kreider.
There are lots of more fun things on TV. Like, my fave, Big Brother.
I can only imagine the fireworks if Ms. Kreider was on a show like that - locked up in a house with a bunch of strangers for a few months, and none of them have to be nice to you! Watching the hamsters - whoops, I meant houseguests - is more fun when they fight.
Well, gotta get back to the live feeds for BB and find out who is nominated for eviction, and will Matt use the secret Diamond power of veto to save one or both of them and frustrate Brendan the new HOH,

Elvira said...

So much for the kids are just being filmed doing their normal activities. Once again that lie is exposed as the kids are treated as trained seals to march to the beach while being filmed and photographed then marched back to the house. How is that for accommodating the children even trying to make them fly kites in too much wind? The crew shouldn't be so intent on getting the planned shot that they can't say this isn't working today so let them do something else. It isn't just making them work, it's being downright stupid.

silimom said...

The crew shouldn't be so intent on getting the planned shot that they can't say this isn't working today so let them do something else.
*****

The crew shouldn't be deciding to let them do something else. Kate should be the one to stand up and say "This isn't working, let's just let them play on the beach for a while".

More and more, Kate loses any credibility she thinks she has. Yes, people may like to watch her antics in the same way they like to watch a car wreck on the highway which is what ultimately keeps her 15 minutes going, however people in the industry - real professional actors, dancers, crew - think she's a joke. And in the end, her reputation with them is what's going to kill her career.

Cry Me a RIver said...

Poor kids fighting over food - a granola bar. They even look half starved now. I hate that b(*(). She is so mean. And her and Steve sitting very close, touching legs, is there any wonder? Glad the Huffington Post lady was there to see the fiasco. Steve must be out of his mind or else he is just playing her.

Kitty The Dog's Blog said...

My husband was recently talking to a client he had not seen in a while and asked how her summer was going. She mentioned she had been to NYC for vacation and they talked about that for a while and she asked if he knew who Khate was. He said yes, but did not go into detail about what he thought of her. The client told my hubby that she had been at Ellis Island/Statue of Liberty the same day as Khate. She said that Khate was a "total b" and that it seemed that there was at least 1 female helper or nanny per kid and a lot of security people plus crew and that Khate loved the attention. She walked in front of her entourage including kids with her nose literally in the air. In the time they spent there, Khate did not pay attention to any of the kids, see if they were comfortable, hydrated, tired, etc, talk to them or the nannies, etc. Khate was constantly talking to the camera people about "me, me, me" and just really loved all of the attention, even when people openly criticized her out loud. The client's daughter at one point noticed Khate's shoes and yelled out "look at her shoes! She's wearing whore shoes" and Khate just loved it! As long as people were paying attention she was happy, even if the attention was negative. The client said she knew "of" Khate, but was not a fan nor a hater, she just thought she was a "total b" who didn't like her own children. I thought it was interesting to hear from someone who had never watched the show. They had to stand in close proximity to her for a while in line and could hear everything she was saying and that it was "all about me". The whole experience was very negative and left a bad taste in this person's mouth, obviously.

Hippie Chick said...

Kate literally makes me sick. She is a stuck up snob with no sense of warmth for her own children. She is a selfish, self-entitled braggart that has no common decency. We complain that she drags her kids all over this summer, yes. But, next summer, I really think it will be all over. There will no longer be a show. People are noticing. Everyone knows what she makes now. She is no longer the "poor single mom of 8 kids". She is a wanna-be Dina Lohan, & that's not good. Look where Lindsay Lohan is. People are sitting up & taking notice of where Kate is & who she is & what she's doing.

These shows are another thing. Watching a family of 8 going on yet another vacation in these tough times makes people want to turn their backs & shut off the TV. How does TLC not see that? There are so many that are struggling to put food on the table for 3 or 4, & here we have a "single mother of 8", doing it "alone", traveling all over the country, having the time of HER life, (not the kid's). Nobody wants to see that. She is so blind. And she is making me sick. I do not watch, nor have I in years. I don't like women that emasculate their husbands or degrade their children. Kate is on her last leg. And I want to be the one who pushes her over with the feather.

2badsosad said...

I dont understand why 6 ( or 8) children would require being 'instructed' to 'play'. Are the Gosselin children so out of touch with 'reality' that an entire ocean and miles of sandy beach serve little or no interest to them? Have they ever built a sand castle, searched for shells/rocks, buried each other in the sand, spend an hour digging a sand hole and then another hour going back and forth with buckets of ocean water to fill the hole, or using a sitck to write their names in the sand. It really is a sad 'reality' when children spend so much time 'working' that they have lost all concept of what it's actually like to be a CHILD.

I normally don't watch anything with Khate in it, but I was at work and visiting a patient that had The View on, with the volume cranked up. The one lady who always sticks up for Khate was saying that Kate set her standards too high (WTF?), which is why she had a poor showing on DWTS. Kate said she also felt guilty that she couldn't go the full 30(?) weeks with the tups and had to have them at a half week early. Whatever, Khate. Sorry that you can't control Mother Nature and harbor guilt about it.

I'm glad you brought up the Masche's because I caught them on the Today Show, when I was waiting for a dr. appt. this past Wed. I know we've ragged on about the Gosselin 8 acting up during interviews, but they've been angels compared to the Masche kids. I don't know how old their tups are, but I've never seen such unruly kids on TV. I almost think it's set-up that way, to show how terribly hard it is to parent six kids. There was a camera focusing just on the kids crawling around and jumping off the stage, screaming. It's not the kids' fault, but why bother doing an interview with the parents with the kids drowning them out? Hidden agendas, I'm sure (freebie offers, to name one).

Well so much for the kids enjoying the vacation, poor little souls.
That was fortunate that the Huffington Post author was there, looks like we had the real story and not ROL's regurgitated version.
Hmmm...Steve sitting CLOSE to Kate...I don't doubt it for a minute.
What a pill Kate is, so full of herself. I for one would not have had a photo taken with her, would probably have told her a few home truths.

GWOP'ers, glad you enjoyed the Sheriff story. Kate makes such a great subject for comedy!!
StoryLady, no, I am not a professional writer, but do write for a hobby. I had a short story published once, but like everyone else, there is always the book which is never finished!! :)

Anonymous said...

It's too bad and so sad that Aiden didn't know a real bird from a fake one. Remember his saying "Are These Real Birds?"
These children are very confused with cameras in their faces and "Acting" They will forever be affected by what their sorry Mother has put them through, not to mention telling them she was going to marry a big 6'4" cop to make them OBEY. What a piece or work.

fidosmommy said...

Aeris, I have always been pretty impressed with the behavior of the Gosselin children during TV interviews. It was their mother who decided squirming merited a pinched shoulder (Alexis) and their mother who seems to demand perfection from them. I never have. I expect kids to be kids within reasonable parameters of safety and courtesy appropriate to their age. I do understand their becoming fussy if they are hot, bored or overly tired (or "low sugar" according to their mother).
Heck, I'm in my 50's and I get
fussy if I'm extremely uncomfortable and forced to stay in that uncomfortable place for long.

I know nothing about the Masche family, so I can't compare.

***********
That's why they have to be instructed to play. No one can say the cameras catching their every move growing up has not ruined them. They can't even play like normal kids without waiting for direction. They have probably been screamed at their whole lives for playing wrong while shooting scenes..by mommy!

come on said...

I thought tlc said this was a documentary, filming the kids just going about their lives. This sounds really staged, like real acting.

Come on tlc and kate,show us realest reality, show us Alexis spitting.

oh my. i guess this is where the interviewer is supposed to chime, but kate you gave birth to 6 perfectly healthy and normal looking kids...

I wonder if she feels guilty about going on tv and saying her husband took all their money and she cant even pay bills in her purse.

Brummygirl said...

Well B.M. is up in arms about the Huffington Post article. Of course Katy Hall has been called a liar (I must admit she did lie to K8 about watching the show and it is something I would not have done and she put her credibility on the line there. According to B.M., everything is fabricated etc. etc.
Another interesting thing was that B.M. thought GWOP had not picked up on this story...WRONG!! and one of their posters said that this was a dying site and people have moved on.
I see the same posters here plus more, since I joined.
What they cannot understand is that other people have a different concept of Kate Gosselin than their own and they *give no quarter* for anyone else's opinions.
I guess their Sheriff slipped up on her reporting from Mexico!! :)
No, we are not asleep Sheeples, maybe just a little bored with your wannabe mother's antics!!!

No Worry, Beef Curry said...

There is a really cool article, in "Globe" magazine this week. Don't worry, rumor control... my sister gave the tab to me, after her flight home, last night!

It says: "Snobby Kate Snubbed" then goes on to say the DWTS cast is having a major dinner gala, as an alumni get-together of sorts.

Quote- "But one person will be noticeably absent - KATE GOSSELIN!" 'Kate wasn't invited', says an insider. "Everyone became close during the show, except for her. She hasn't returned anyone's calls or e-mails and no one really wants her there, anyway, because she is such a snob."

End Globe mini quote. Consider the Hollywood tide TURNED. No one likes her, I guess now-- not even Evan L... whom is amongst the guests.

grannyoftwo said...

Has anyone seen the movie Date Night with Steve Carell and Tina Fey? On the gag reel they show them in the car and Tina is talking about how she is a B----, and that did he think she like sounding like that woman on Jon and Kate plus eight, its so funny....it didn't make it to the movie but it got put in the gag reel because they thought it was funny too...

Hard to Keep Loving Jon said...

Does Khate feel guilty about lying about her imaginary bra?
JibberJabbers had the best pix up the other day -- before and after.
Guess it's ok for her kinda christians to lie on national tv re. bills & boobs.

Hard to Keep Loving Jon said...

Jimmy Kimmel could save a lot of $$$ in writers' fees and use your song for the Emmies, Brummygirl! Too bad it's so perfectly esoteric.

wildflowers said...

Kate 'crying poor' was so last year. Now that her children are BACK TO WORK, Kate is treating herself to bi-weekly 'working vacations'. The children WORK while Kate VACATIONS.

Minka's Tail said...

Two thoughts:

One of the problems with filiming children on television is that most "normal" childhood diversions are not that much fun to watch. I loved to read by the twins' age. Would they be allowed to bring a tween book to the beach and just read for an hour? Probably not on filming day. It's boring to watch, and they'd have to pay royalties to the author. (I think)

Other activities that kids do that are unfilmable: watching tv/movies (royalties and boring); playing any kind of video or computer game, educational or otherwise; small-scale arts and crafts; practicing an instrument (could explain the loss of the piano and violin); or just relaxing and talking/playing quietly with their siblings and toys.

Everything they do has to be a large-scale project with a strong possibility of going wrong. They probably loved that the kites couldn't get up in the air. More conflict for the show! What would someone like Baby Mama rather see, a frustrating day of meltdowns or a relatively calm day of children running in the surf and picking up shells? Even more important, what would help K8's martyr status? Nobody feels as sorry for a single mother whose now-schoolage children are off amusing themselves much of the time.

Pattypanda said...

MomIam... in the early shows, Jon did at least 75% of the childcare and worked a full time job. Kate was home, but she did little, it was a lot of healpers, dealing with the kids and household chores. Kate made lots of lits and sticky notes for everyone else to follow. Jon brought her a cup of coffee in bed, tended to Maddy and Cara, got them off to school before her highness got her butt out of bed at 8am. That would have been a nice time for her to spend quality time with the older girls before the babies, got up, but not her. Her mind never worked liked that. Jon game home from work, did the baths and bed routine. I dont' know he never gave her a big kick in her lazy butt.

I'm ready, Mr. DeMille said...

While surfing through some other sites, I came upon a bleeding heart fan of K8's who STILL insists that what K8 is doing to earn a living for her kids, is so much better than "working as a nurse for 60 plus hours per week".

While it is true that K8 worked in the nursing profession for a time, the "60 hour plus" business really grates on me. I do believe that nurses in war zones do work those type of hours but hey, we're talking K8 here.

It seems like TLC's shillls are as out of touch of reality as K8 is. When "touching" news about K8 is running thin, Team K8 starts relying on old stale tidbits of bullcrap.

Recent photos of K8 are not flattering at all, she seems to be aging at breakneck speed. Thanks TLC, you created a real reality monster and destroyed lives in the movement while destroying your credibility in the journey.

BeDoneNow said...

Yahoo's OMG posted a few pics of the kids working the NC beach again.

The few sentences they posted with the pics said something along the lines of: "Even all that money and 8 beautiful babies apparently cant make Kate Gosselin happy. Proving once again that money cant buy happiness."

All the pics posted were of Kate looking like, well.... Kate! (scowling, angry, disgusted at her children as usual).

Well B.M. is up in arms about the Huffington Post article.

Well if BM is sooooooo up in arms about the Huffington Post article, then perhaps the next time TLC, Kate +8 + entourage are reported to be in Bald Head NC, B.M. should dish out 8 grand on a Bald Head beach rental condo and report back the TRUTH.

Aunt Chris said...

Now pics of the end of the trip. Kate in short, tight dress,blank stare in those dead eyes, nanny of the month actually reaching for one of the kids hands. Imagine that, skin to skin contact with your offspring!The article talks about the amount of luggage that comes with the kids getting bigger. Well, we know Kate's not lifting a finger, especially in that dress!

Went to our local dollar store for some household items and there was Kate's opus, 'Multiple Blessings', in hard cover. The dollar store, folks. There were many copies. I would say the mark-up was about 99 cents.

Dying site - that's funny. All 11.5 million of us dying off.

I don't even care about Khate anymore but still like to start and end my day with GWOP.

Always good for a laugh or insightfulness that reaches beyond the boundaries of K8, that some would just not understand.

I certainly would like to believe what you are saying. I don't though. This nasty hag will keep right on rolling along for a long, long time.

She knows how unpopular she is with a lot of people.

She doesn't care AT ALL.

Though we now know she has been planning this for a long time, she has reached her goal of fame and money, and has no attention of getting off her gravy train.

People have long said she is past her 15-minutes-of-fame, but it just ain't happening.

She is going to be around for a long, long time.

I wonder what Purse-boy would do if he told someone to erase a pic on their camera phone, and they simply replied "No Thank you". This is America dear Purseboy, so if you ever run into me and my Iphone, I will press charges against you if you dare touch me or my property. God Bless America. We have a constitution, better read it on your beach vacations.

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

the girl that wrote the article for huffington post said that steve came over and told her don't take pictures of the kids. but she had or was trying to take pictures of kate and steve. then he said erase them now. she admitted that she let him bully her into doing it. i would of told him, my family owns this house, i am on vacation, i have a right to be here and if you don't get away from me right now, i am calling the police. and if he grabbed me to get to my phone or got my phone and deleted anything, i would call the police and file a police report. she is out in public. you can take pictures out in public.
if kate was in a nude sparkly bikini and steve was there sitting next to her and they were touching each other's legs. What about Gina? what is going on? there is no way i could sit back and just let this happen, unless TLC is paying her big money to let this happen. but you would think that kate would pitch a fit for her not to get paid like she did Nana Janet, Kevin and Jodi, and a few other people. but it involves steve. i saw the picture of mady when she caught steve and kate kissing, wow, she looked so sad.
these kids are going to have a hard row to hoe when they get older.
wind blowing too hard for kite flying? just let the kids build a sand castle and then let the tide come in and call it a day. sorry, that's a wrap.

CarolS461 said...

I don't understand the whole thing with forcing people to erase pictures from their phones, digital cameras, etc.

They don't force the p-razzi to erase their pictures, so what is the big deal about a fan taking a snapshot of the kids. WHO CARES!

Kate Gosselin is not that big a deal. Yeah, so people think her kids are cute and want to take pictures of them.

Hey, Purse Boy...have you looked at the internet lately? Have you checked out YouTube with the bazillions of clips people have made about the Gosselins with pictures of their own or pictures from the internet?

Kate needs to get over herself and stop worrying about people taking pictures of her and her kids. Seems to me, she's got things on her plate that should be much more important.

Boston Bonnie said...

Khate can deny all she wants that she had enhancement but if you look closely at the pictures of her on the beach it likes like there is a defect in her right breast. I've seen it before and thought it might be a shadow but not anymore.

sillyrabbit said...

I wonder what 'security' school that Steve, the body gaurd, attended that offers such diverse tactical training as 'How to maintain optimum security on/over your client and offer the service of carrying multiple boogie boards at the same time'. The same tactical training that covers preparedness situations involving purses, luggage, dry cleaning, children etc...Surely you Jest!

Hippie Chick said...

@ Button Button, do you really think so? I honestly don't think there will be a show next year. I think her time is waning. She HAS been around for a long, long time, & in my eyes, her time is up. The articles about her are scathing. Yes, people love to hate her, & that may be OK with some. But think back to reality villains. Where are they now? Omarosa anyone? Puck from the Real World?

And let's remember she in only popular because she rides the back of her kids, who are aging, and have lost the cute factor. Next year, they will be in the 1st grade, 7 years old, just not a big deal anymore. TLC would have success with Sarah "you betcha" Palin, & have tossed K8 to the side. This is just my opinion, mind you. But I really get the feeling that the beginning of the end is happening. K8's a has-been, a joke. She showed her true colors during her stint w/ DWTS, Tony wants nothing to do w/ her! That speaks volumes!

No one in this day, when so many are struggling, want to see a "single poor" mom of 8, knowing how much she's making, take their kids on vaca after vaca. TLC and K8 are delusional. Her ratings are dipping steadily, IMO, it's almost over.

Khate can deny all she wants that she had enhancement but if you look closely at the pictures of her on the beach it likes like there is a defect in her right breast. I've seen it before and thought it might be a shadow but not anymore.

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

If you look at women who have had breast enhancement who have lost weight, such as Tori Spelling, Paula Abdul etc, sometimes they get an indent in their cleavage. It is rather large, and can't be helped apparently. If K8 loses too much weight, this could happen & we would KNOW for certain she had surgery-ahem, we KNOW Kate! But I assume this is a sign? So beware Kate, don't lose too much weight, or you would get this concave cleavage. I think it goes away if you gain the weight back, but I'm not sure. Does anyone know about this or know what I'm taking about? Seen the pictures?

Hi

I am 64 years old. kate if your reading this my girls have begun to droop. I remember being a teenage and seeing my moms girls also drop. Can you please tell me what bra you use so I can fix my girls.

Oh my dad worked two jobs so my mom could take us to the beach every year. sometimes a few weeks back then it was around 100.00 a week that had to be paid in January.
Once we were on beach the only time we sat on blanket was to eat tuna sandwiches. We were in the water, building sand castles, digiing a hole to China. or walking along the beach looking for rocks,sea glass,star fish,crabs,
sheels.Lots of stuff come out the ocean. We played for hours. My Mom could sit on blanket and not worry. My Dad sometimes would join us for the weekend and every sunday would return hooome. My Mom saved every penny she had for us to go on this vacation. Both of my parents went without. My Brothers and me are very thankful for these vacations. I wonder if the Gosslins kids are

fake fake said...

So....like we suspected, Kate Plus Eight is a show about a mean neglectful mother not taking care of her eight kids. They go on fake vacations and do fake projects around the house. The mean mom ignores the kids and obssesses over her looks...even though she's homely...and pays attention to the camera while her kids hit and fight with each other. She slams doors in her son's face as he asks her a question. She lies about how she cares for her kids and struggles to make ends meet. She gives her many helpers and the kids' dad no credit in caring for the kids. Why is this even on the air any more?

wildflowers said...

They don't force the p-razzi to erase their pictures, so what is the big deal about a fan taking a snapshot of the kids. WHO CARES!

'They' dont force Kate's personal paparrazi to erase pictures because 'they' have pre approved the photo op and the photos being released. 'They' DO force fans or bystanders to erase photos because they KNOW the individual could have just taken a career ending photo.

tx mom said...

It just amazes me that someone can be so stupid (BM).
I told her so, bet she won't publish it.
Also told her, that when her hero and ol' Steve come out as a couple, she needs to take down her site.
Can you imagine the breying that is going to go on over there when those two come out??
Too funny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As an aside, the old clip where Stevo speaks, his voice makes my skin crawl. EEWWWWW.....what a SISSY

I have always tried to give people the benefit of the doubt, but my lord, does that sick bitch have ONE, just ONE redeeming quality? I've never seen one decent thing in her sick persona. Does she realize she's just about the most reviled, repulsive woman in this country? I don't know who Snooki is, but I'm willing to bet she has ONE redeeming quality. I don't know anyone who doesn't depise her. And I don't get worked up about celebrities. She's the rare exception. I absolutely hate her.

I was in England at the time, that's why I missed it.

1. If true, I cannot see what he can see in her, being with her day in and day out.
2. I didn't think she had a sexy bone in her body.
3. How much of this can we believe, although nothing surprises me with this woman.

Why is Mommy and Steve Orange?... said...

thanks jibberjabbers. i was refering about the picture of mady that was on the tabliod. i didnt make myself clear. what you had up is what i saw.
i also saw the before and after kate's implants. of course she had implants put in. and claim it was a miracle bra? she is crazy and a liar.

I wonder what Purse-boy would do if he told someone to erase a pic on their camera phone, and they simply replied "No Thank you". This is America dear Purseboy, so if you ever run into me and my Iphone, I will press charges against you if you dare touch me or my property. God Bless America. We have a constitution, better read it on your beach vacations.


This would be the exact thing I would do too, what is wrong with these people? Are they just that dumb to the law that they do not know they have rights? He cannot just come up to you and make you erase your own pictures taken out in a public place. Especially if she was in her own family's yard. WOW, how crazy is that?

Tami said...

Why are the people who catch photos of Khate and her kids always the type who will get all scared and delete them when the oh so tough purse holder tells them to? He CAN'T force anyone to delete a picture! And it is LEGAL to take pictures in a public place! It reminds me of my husband who will get all mad and yells inside the car when someone almost kills us on the highway but refuses to honk his horn because he's scared or something. I'm the opposite. If he tried to confront me I'd laugh at him. No way would I listen and delete the pictures. I'm just waiting for the day when a person who is not the kind to be intimidated by a pansy like Steve gets some good shots that are not phony and staged.

jonandkatewho? said...

I'm not the type of person who would delete any pictures at the request of Steve, either. I do have a hard time understanding why anybody would do that just because he said to, but I hesitate to say anybody is actually afraid of him. Probably just trying to be polite and being shocked by the request at first, I don't know. He probably gets a bit bossy about it and pushy. Perhaps some do it out of respect for the children.

Actually I would probably laugh at him too, or I might politely tell him "no thank you, they are mine and I will keep them." Or I might tell him to go to hell. I know one thing, if he tried to touch me physically, I would also call the cops. He can't just force somebody to delete pics.

Of course, most of the pics that have been taken are probably pretty worthless. You might just delete them later because of Kate's ugly mug being in them. And if I had pics of those poor kids, I might not want to keep them, the more I think of it. I don't like Kate exploiting the kids so why would I keep pics of them? I actually have pretty mixed feelings about all of this. I am glad that the public knows Kate for the monster that she is, but if I had taken the ones of her spanking Leah, I am not sure what I would have done with them. I would not have wanted to embarass the child.

IDModo said...

If anyone should be embarrassed in the photo of Kate hitting Leah, it should be Kate, not the child.

If everyone felt they should hold back on something that might be considered abusive, so as not to embarrass the child, many children would continue to be disciplined harshly and inappropriately.

TinBox said...

I see that in the latest pics of Kate leaving Bald Head Island, she is again wearing that miracle fabulous bra!!! It works even as a strapless version with incredible results.

These shows are another thing. Watching a family of 8 going on yet another vacation in these tough times makes people want to turn their backs & shut off the TV. How does TLC not see that? There are so many that are struggling to put food on the table for 3 or 4, & here we have a "single mother of 8", doing it "alone", traveling all over the country, having the time of HER life, (not the kid's).

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

I thought a lot about your comment. I really don't want to see the conceited, arrogant Kate going on her fancy trips dragging her children behind. What I would like to see on The Learning Channel (TLC) is how families are making it in this tough economy. I'd like to see someone manage to put together a birthday party on a shoestring budget, or plan a family outing that's inexpensive yet fun. I know someone out of work who says his hunting rifle is his food stamp program. He hunts game to put food on the table. I thought it was very interesting in the beginning of the Duggars when Michelle and Jim Bob went to the thrift shop and picked out all polo shirts. Each show could be a different family. Then I'd like to see how the money from TLC helps each family. It would be more of a documentary, we can learn how to stretch our budget, and it can be UNSCRIPTED! I would watch something like that on TLC. It would be more appropriate for this slow economy.

*********
The only reason whatsoever I would take pics is to make a point that I can--that she is not off limits while out in public and that Steve can't push anyone around. I would not even take any of the kids deliberately. I WOULD take plenty of Khate just to rile her up. And I would not worry in the least about being polite to Steve. He has never been polite to anyone in the public, so he does not deserve it in return. Same with her.

Actually I remember reading the story and it was not just kissing Mady caught. It was supposedly something pretty x-rated, although it involved kissing in a way. This is when the kids came home early from a vacation (just the twins) and went to stay with dad because they were traumatized.

Captain of the Titanic said...

With all the latest speculation about Kate and Steve, why hasn't there been any reporting going on about whether he spends the night at her house? Or where he stays when he isn't "working"? I mean let's say there are a couple of days in a row that he is involved in filming, or whatever (landscaping), is he likely to drive home each night? Does he have other living arrangements?

It would seem to me that the "paparazzi" on duty aren't very good at their jobs and it's all the more reason to suspect everything is tightly controlled by TLC.

Even the scandal papers don't seem to be operating up to snuff on this story. Sure they might throw around a little speculation, but you don't see any of the behind the scenes proof.

Personally, I find it hard to believe the two of them are in any sort of romantic relationship.

sillyrabbit said...

Sorry. Steve isnt a body gaurd. Call him a personal assistant, helper, 'family friend', carrier of all things, TLC character filler or whatever. But IMO, one thing he is NOT. Kate's body gaurd!

Catherine said:

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

While I personally would be unhappy if Snooki was my adult child, boozing it up and acting the fool for TV cameras, in her favor I will say: she's young, single, and getting money thrown at her by MTV, so I'm not surprised she's behaving foolishly. But more importantly, she hasn't purposely gotten herself pregnant with multiples with the intent to market them into a television show and make them work to support her. Any money Snooki makes is from being her (sometimes graceless) self and a network has agreed to pay her for this.

Kate (and Steve) are willing exploiters of minor children, in order that they may each make lots of money.

Perfect. Thank you. And this is the "real-ist reality show ever".

And where is spoke - per - non to defend her idol? ....(...crickets...)....

fidosmommy said...

Steve probably has a badge he flashes if somebody gives him a hard time about deleting pictures.
It would show how he meant business, official business, and his client was not to be disturbed.
The idea is to mentally strongarm
people - although it has been reported he has actually pulled people away from Kate in public places.

Anybody want to guess what the badge might say?

Too bad we all know about Barney Fife and his badge. A joke. But at least it was a funny one.

Kate Gosselin's 5 Hour Big Apple Beauty Treatment

(snip)

Fresh off of a family filming vacation in Bald Head Island, Kate Gosselin was spotted stepping out in New York City on Monday morning (August 16).

The TLC reality star mom was busy getting her hairdo all prettied up - as she spent approximately five hours getting pampered at a local high-end salon.

The constant traveling - which kicked off with a family expedition to Alaska - comes as Miss Gosselin gets ready to send her brood of eight children back to school.

"I'd like to see someone manage to put together a birthday party on a shoestring budget, or plan a family outing that's inexpensive yet fun.'
---------------

Good ideas, but I doubt that they would fly for TLC. First of all, it's not weird enough. There would be no mermaid women, a little person married to 32 women, moms living vicariously through their beauty pageant daughters, or men who marry their dogs (or whatever). The trainwreck factor isn't there...nothing unusual enough.

Secondly, TLC draws viewers who like to see how ordinary people become overnight sensations, being able to afford the finer things in life, such as luxury vacations and million dollar homes. Viewers who cannot afford such trips and material possessions can dream that someday they, too, can have the lifestyle of the rich and famous. They live in a fantasy world, and TLC is an enabler, allowing them to envy and step into that lifstyle, if only for an hour a week. Materialism is the key here. The Sheeple fall into this category.

Watching a show on how to put together a birthday party on a budget just wouldn't cut it because television networks assume that when viewers turn on their television, they want to leave the worries of a struggling economy behind them, NOT watch shows that serve as a reminder of things going wrong in their own world.

That said, why not send your suggestions to TLC? With them, you just never know! I've been fooled many times before!

NT said...

Gossipcenter.com has pics of Kate In NYC for a 5 hour beauty treatment. Looks like she is there without Steve. Wonder how long she will be there before she heads to LA. for the Emmy's. I'll bet the kids don't see her again till after school starts.

silimom said...

So Kate blogs that she's sad the kids will all be in full time school this year.

Buck up, Kate! You'll be able to cut back on the nannies now (you'll only need them after school) so you'll have more money for mani/pedis, shoes and tube tops! You could even splurge and start giving the kids TWO pretzels at dinner! And the kids will be happier too, now that they don't have to work so much. It's a win-win!

And - gasp! - you could actually go out and get a job or volunteer during the time the kids are in school! Picking up some nursing hours would help bring in even more money! And it would give TLC something to film too. Then you wouldn't have to go on The View or the Today Show and complain about all those bills in your purse that you can't pay!

Wow! The blessings never cease! Golly gee, Kate - you're such a lucky woman!

(Sorry -I'm tired and a little snarky today).

================================
LOL! The thought of how they will spin THAT one over at the barnyard made me smile :) They zealously defended Jon & Kate's marriage to the bitter end, but when the big announcement came they justified it by saying Kate could no longer put up with his cheating. Whaaaat? The same cheating they INSISTED for months was not happening, but instead was rumours and photoshopped pictures manufactured by GWOP?


I know there are people who still think there is no way Kate and Steve have hooked up, mainly because what man would be so stupid? Sadly, as we've seen, money seems to speak louder than dignity, morals or intelligence. The signs are all there. There's no mention of "Twist of Kate" because I suspect TLC is going to make Steve & Kate's relationship public instead. Around the time of DWTS, nannies were chosen to care for the kids while Kate was away instead of Jon- Kate seemed to be trying to limit Jon's visits. Could Kate's banning Jon from the property stem from Steve possibly moving into Kate's bedroom and she didn't want Jon to know? Could Jon's bid for full custody have stemmed from the kids telling him about Steve & Kate and this was an explosive bargaining chip in his pocket? When TLC allowed Steve to be interviewed on the first show this year, I think they were laying the groundwork of letting the public get to know him & get used to him. When Steve and his sons were at the Konpound on Memorial Day without Mrs. Neild, I thought that was telling as well. Many posters have said they can't believe Mrs. Neild is putting up with this, well I bet TLC is paying her handsomely to put up with it. The only sticking point here is that when Kate filed for divorce, she appeared to be the victim after Jon's well publicized extra curricular activities. How they would spin a Steve-Kate relaltionship favorably, I have no idea. The word homewrecker comes to mind. I would imagine there would be alot of emphasis on insisting the Neilds were long separated before Kate & Steve took up with each other. I will bet the farm full of sheeple that the reason Jon is able to sit around watching movies, filling out surveys and Tweeting because TLC is also paying him very well to keep his mouth shut.

Of course it would be Kate who SHOULD be embarrassed at the photo. But you cannot deny that the child will suffer because of the photo as well. There are many things caught on film already that will embarrass those kids in the future if they haven't already.

"might be comsidered abusive"...that's the problem. The picture was released and the public saw it but no charges were filed to my knowledge. I also am not saying that if i took a photo of a parent abusing a child that I would not do anything to help, but in this case I just am not sure what I would have done with the photo, since those kids are so over-exposed already and that is an issue to me. I suppose since it was taken by somebody who is paid to take pictures and let them be seen, I would have done what the photographer in that case did as well.

Suzy Q said...

I love love LOVE (did I mention love) the Huffington Post first person account in NC. So glad to read the reality of how this "reality show" is filmed!

That writer should have told Steve to go fly a kite though, when he asked her to delete her photo from her phone - if he knows anything about photography rights (which he would, dealing with filming the show) then he would know that you are allowed to photograph ANYONE in public (keyword being public).

How sad and ironic that someone gets harassed by snapping a simple camera phone shot - but those poor children have cameras shoved in their faces constantly and are forced to perform.

Judging by the comments at Huffington and other blogs, stories, etc. - I really think the tide is turning and people are becoming more disgusted by Kate. Put a fork in her - she is done!

Is Kate Gosselin’s Bodyguard Her Secret New Boyfriend?

(snip)

The rumors are heating up that America’s reality mom has found love with her bodyguard Steve Neild. There’s just one little problem — he’s married!

Kate Gosselin revealed Aug. 13 that she doesn’t want to be single mom anymore — she even listed all the qualities she’s looking for in a man! But has Kate secretly had a boyfriend all along?

Kate, 35, just ended her week long vacation in Bald Head Island, N.C., with her eight little kiddies and married longtime bodyguard Steve Neild in tow. Everything appeared to be business as usual while Kate shot scenes for her new TLC reality show Kate Plus Eight, until an eyewitness report surfaced in The Huffington Post alleging that Kate and Steve were so cozy on the beach that they were actually sitting side-by-side with their legs touching! This comes right on the heels of Kate describing what she wants in a future mate: “older, wiser, patient and kind” — sounds a lot like Steve if you ask us!

In case you didn’t already know this, Steve goes everywhere Kate goes. Whether it’s jetting off to Alaska to film a camping trip with Sarah Palin, or to one of Kate’s book signings — the New Zealand native is right there fending off the paparazzi. But not only is there some leg touching in this new report, Steve enthusiastically complimented Kate on her bikini body in front of the eyewitness! Do you sit super close to your guy friends while gazing off into the sunset? Didn’t think so.

We starting noticing that Steve was becoming a bigger force in Kate’s life when he appeared on the second episode of Kate Plus 8, which aired Jul. 11. The normally behind the scenes family body guard was turning into Kate’s stand-in hubby! Steve was sitting on the couch gabbing to the camera just as Kate’s ex-husband Jon Gosselin used to do during the days of Jon and Kate Plus 8.

The 8 Gosselin children go on a 'working vacation' to Bald Head NC and as soon as the cameras stop filming, Mommy Dearest leaves her kids with a nanny and heads off to NY to spend FIVE hours pampering HERSELF at a high end salon! What? There arent any 'high end' salons in PA?

txmom said...

If she could figure out how to pull in the big bucks without the kids, she would give those kids to Jon in the blink of an eye!
All those vacations, and I bet she hates it, since she HAS to take those burdensome kids with her. A REAL vacation for her is WITHOUT the kiddos. They just get in the way.
I bet her best vacation would be for she and purseboy to have time alone.

I ----------------------- Well, back in the early episodes, supposedly that's what Kate and Jon were sharing with their audience -- how they made ends meet with 8 young children and one income. We now know how much of that was completely phony, and we were never shown the free nurse provided by the State of PA for the first year, the dozens of helpers there every day, all the freebies they mooched out of the unsuspecting public, the love offerings, etc. I completely agree with you -- I think that people would definitely tune in every week to see how different families are coping with the tough economy.

I have no interest in seeing a selfish woman drag her 8 children around the country to be filmed doing expensive outings, while she flashes her perfect manicure, weaved hair, tanned and botoxed and breast enhanced body. That's not real life, and that's certainly not what single moms go through in their daily lives. I just hope the ratings continue to slide further downward until TLC stops throwing money at this greedy bitch.

There are chains of discount salons which can create the same look (or better) than she has now for less than $100.00 (including tip). Been there, done that, and my hair looks MUCH better than hers!

Brummygirl said...

On the subject of Kate and Steve. Did not someone a while ago print Steve's address as living at Kate's?
I believe that any woman, no matter how friendly Kate behaved toward them and no matter how many times she was told it was just a business arrangement, would have a gut feeling that something was not right.
I know that I would not believe there was no smoke without fire and no matter how much money, I would insist my husband got out of that situation. After all, it is his company and I am sure there are other *purses* in the world to hold!
Hmmmm....as Alice in Wonderland said...curioser and curioser!!!!!

fidosmommy said...

1) It looks like a reasonable assumption that something is going on between Steve and Kate. This Huffington Post account seems truthful to me.

2) There are times when circumstantial evidence is inaccurate.

3) Either way, Gina Neild has said nothing in public about it.

4) Imagine how she feels about it
after this beach scene hit the news. Whether true or not, it is now messing up her life more than she was willing to let it before now.

What she either didn't know, chose to ignore, or was sad and angry about is now basically public record. How sad for her.

It's like the analogy of tossing a stone in the water and watching the ripples go outward. Kate has thrown plenty of stones, but she can't take her eyes off her hair long enough to care how her self-serving attitude affects others.

Still in Canada said...

If a Kate/Steve affair was exposed (even after all this time), it would certainly explain a few things. Jon had a problem with their relationship long before his marriage to Kate ended in divorce. Jon (and others) have stated many times 'once the real truth comes out'... Perhaps this is it. Can't help noticing Miss Kate is in NYC without any photos of the ever-present Mr. Grey at her side - maybe they're back-pedalling to take the heat off. I predict Kate will suddenly turn up with that older, wiser, kind gentleman to take care of her soon. I see her publicist has trotted out a very quick denial to these recent rumors which is a bit unusual in itself - with all the nasty things that are said, thought, photographed and suspected about Kate Gosselin, her camp NEVER issues denials. Curiouser and curiouser indeed! Maybe Jon has been the cuckold all along! Wonder what the sheeple would say about that???

Aunt Chris said...

Midnight Serenade, your hair looks better because it's growning out of a healthy, thinking head, not that vast wasteland that Kate's hair (real or ortherwise) is attached to.

Hmm.

Steve likes to delete photos.

Wonder what happens when the kids are old enough for cameras of their own?

Delete...delete...delete...delete...delete...delete...delete...delete...

Why is Mommy Orange? said...

Guess what? Discovery just ended their brief syndication of 'Jon and Kate Plus 8' on their network. They replaced it with Dr. G: Medical Examiner. Actually, they ended it weeks ago, only it's official on the cable guide now. Mission Accomplished! No one wants to see that disgusting Kate drivel again. It just makes people feel sorry for Jon, the kids, her neighbors, ex-friends and family, and freebie contibutors that didn't know she was truly a born grifter.

When does the free Juicy Juice end, Kate? When they are starting college at 21 years old? Sick. It's a good thing she wasn't getting free organic milk, with the way those kids suck it down.

Why is Mommy Orange? said...

And another thing!

Orange Mommy is touching legs with Purse Boy, Steve Neild at the beach in NC? Gross. What a bad example of a mother.

I really felt the Huffington story was well written and credible. It brings so much, of what is so wrong to light for the public. We have been saying it here on GWoP for years.

Better question- Why is a married man and professional Bodyguard playing oceanside footsie with the Client? Hmm... Gina?

While looking at the NYC photos, what struck me most, was how filthy the sidewalk and street were, and how not so long ago, Kate was walking barefoot there.

kate and steve BUSTED! said...

I guess I'm late to the party here on the very revealing posting by an entertainment editor for The Huffington Post...wow, I don't imagine Steve and Kate counted on a local/visitor having those credentials. I'm sorry I don't know how to post links but check out this part: "Wednesday finally brought an off-camera beach outing. Kate had swapped the modest two-piece she'd had on for filming for a nude-colored sparkly string bikini. The only other adult present, a middle-aged, athletic man with a full head of gray hair, sat very close to her. 'Steve, Steve!' the kids called as he splashed them from a bucket of water. I later identified him as Steve Neild, a longtime bodyguard and travel companion who is married and was rumored to have served as Kate's boob job consultant last year. I took a couple pictures with my phone and ended up catching Steve's attention. He jogged over to my beach chair and asked in a stern British accent, 'Would you mind not taking pictures of the children?' I didn't point out I was more interested in snapping him and Kate touching legs. I agreed, and firmly, protectively, he said, 'Erase those, now.'"

Whoa. This is pretty damaging press for Kate. What Jon inferred all along must be true about any "carrying on" between the wife and Mr. Gray. As usual, I could give a flying you-know-what as to who's with who but I definitely don't like being misled which is what bothers me the most about all of these people. They'd get a lot more positive vibes out of their "audience" if they were just straight shooters but instead it's always shush & cover-up. Which is why it's a joke to describe anything-Gosselin as "reality" television or real life because it's just been one thing after another of less than the truth. I had enough of that with them a long time ago.

I never would have seen that above article but for caving, out of boredom this afternoon, and clicking to read about yet again another Gosselin freebie vacation. It made me wonder if the Gosselin children have ever known a real family vacation that wasn't filmed. I'm sure Kate would use "filming" as justification, saying that the kids would never be able to go on vacation if it weren't for the show because she can't afford to take them on one. For Kate, of course, it's all in the priorities in what she could afford for herself vs. what she can afford for her working children.

I don't know how, after an article like this Huffington Post one, Kate will be able to pull off much longer her whole thing about the financially-strapped, woe-is-me single mom who isn't dating. It certainly is a curious situation. As a wife, I certainly wouldn't want my husband sitting next to his employer on a beach, dancing cheek to cheek, so to speak....

Dr. G., child psychologist said...

At the time of the credit card receipt signed by Steve Nield for the purchase of a purse (I believe) for Kate, I looked up Steve on intelius.com and he was listed as a resident of Wernersville, PA. That listing disappeared quite some time ago.

She's A Skank said...

Wait for it....now that there is speculation about Kate and Steve again, TLC will drag out Mrs. Neild to prove there is nothing going on.

Not only were they close enough that their legs were touching, but Kate had on the sparkly nude colored string bikini she had on the day Steve and his boys visited at the McMansion without the Mrs.

I totally agree, Steve is not a bodyguard...he deleted those photos because he knew that it would create a scandal. The guy is good at being discreet.

Hippie Chick said...

I think it is HILARIOUS that if something is going on between those 2 twits, Kate & Steve, that TLC is paying him to do it!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!
That just makes me laugh so hard. Think about it. Now laugh. AHAHAHAHA!
He's still getting paid? Oh man...that is too funny!! OMG. So funny! That's all she can get? A paid boob-boy? Loves it! She is pathetic. And I love it. Bwahahaha!!!

Amy2 said...

IF Steve and Kate are indeed an item, so be it. I could care less because it will just be a matter of time before Kate ruins his life as she has so many others. And being around Kate for so long he has seen her ugly, ugly side up close and personal. So if he is so stupid so as to hook up with her...so be it.

checker's mommy said...

Rewind a few years.

Picture this:
Jon makes Kate quit her job and to stay home with the kids while he is gone for days or weeks on a book tour.
He has a young attractive female assistant who is at his side- on planes, at restaurants, at home, with him on errand runs etc

If this had happened there would have been a huge uproar and lots of specualation and gossip.

As a viewer, I wonder whose actions really ended the marriage.

annastasia said...

None of any part of this vacation together suprises me, but I was very pleasantly suprised with the way kate looked in her vacation-whites ,standing in the doorway watching stevie-baby carrying the toys-I just loved the way she had her hair pulled all back, the first time,ever,that I thought she actually looked her age, and looked pretty.She should get rid of the white extensions,and wear it super short again,what a big difference it makes.Sorry for being nice,but I am just human!

Affectionate Aliens said...

"Jon should sue Steve for alienation of affection....no, wait.....MAYBE Gina should sue KrazyKate!!'

No can do. In neither PA or MD can any party sue for Alienation of Affection. It's a legal thing of the past...only a few states still retain it.

22Starz said...

I do think something is going on with kate and steve.He gets paid well but, isnt he suppose to have these awesome credentials?With his so called experience your telling me he couldnt get a better "job" with more pay able to allow him to be with his own family more?
I dont buy it!Maybe he's the one person who can control the beast and wont put up with her melt downs and tells her to shut-up and do the job she begged for?
If for one moment kate didnt like the way steve was "running" things we know she would have him fired.I believe something is going on and has been for awhile now.

As for Jon.Not to make excuses for him.But we know his hands are tied...he cant do anyhing.If we was to pitch a bitch,I bet we'd see him sued and sitting in jail real quick.At least when he does get to be with the kids they get some down time from working.That tape of the kids screaming and begging Jon not to make them go back says alot...too much!

I do believe the way TLC is handling Jon is biting them in the ass.With Jon getting paid to remain quiet...there are no wacked-out Jon stories to cover up anything bad that kate is doing.The media knows kate still draws ratings...so with nothing better to do with Jon...they can focus on dear kate.
lots of people are seeing her true colors and getting fed up with her.She cant blame Jon for anything anymore...it all lies in kates lap now.

A great Led Zepplin song "You'r time is gonna come" Listen to it.Dear kate...I do believe your time is coming sooner than you think!

PaMa said...

Isn't it possible that Steve was with Kate in NYC, but was out-of-range of the camera?

Pawn Or Sell? said...

"Hmmm, so why is the idiot Kate in NYC all by her lonesome?'
-----

How do you know she's alone...just because he's not in a photo? I seriously doubt that she's wandering the streets of NYC without anyone with her. Betcha he's there -- probably pulling up the rear, paying her spa bill!

she is evil said...

Vacation at last for the Gosselin 8!! Soon they'll be back to waking up 'wicked early' at 5:30 am, eat 3dozen eggs or three boxes of cereal for breakfast, catch the bus with their mom dressed like a slut and flashing her boobs for the cameras, riding an hour to and from school, going to school and eating their organic half-sandwiches and Juicy Juices for lunch, get picked up by the nanny after school, go home and clean chicken poop, do homework, eat dinner, and get ready for bed with the nannies, and then each of them gets read to by Kate or practices dancing with her (roll eyes) before bedtime. Sounds miserable and Dickensian, doesn't it? But sadly, probably preferable to the summer they've had. How those kids can have so much yet so little is a gift from their biological mother. They truly live in an orphanage, with caretakers but no love and affection to sustain them. Hope Jon gets more time with them soon. They need him

@ she is evil . . .
I agree that school is probably a haven of sanity and reliability compared to their summer of fake vacations.

I just hope that the school is able to keep the teasing and whispering to a minimum. The tups are probably pretty safe, since it seems that kids really only begin to focus on differences in a negative way at around age seven. But still, biracial sextuplets would tend to attract the attention of their schoolmates, even if they weren't on tv and saddled with nutbags for parents.

I feel most for the twins--they are at that age when being different is totally uncool and deeply painful. I say this as the mother of adopted Chinese-American daughters around the same age as the twins.

They especially need the support and advice of their biracial dad to help them negotiate their social world. Kate may think this is all a game between herself and Jon, or the press, or the public. She certainly thinks she is cute. I think she is dangerous and cruel to those miraculous kids.

Well stated. Imagine how the media and everyone else would react if the situation was flipped....

The fact that Jon "speculated" that something between Kate and Steve was going on, and TLC/Kate refused to replace Steve with a different bodyguard shows you how Kate or TLC feels about Jon "feelings".

If nothing was going on, then why not replace Steve? There are plenty of options... Why Steve?

she is evil said...

dustilies, I think you've hit on a subject that unfortunately is very possible, if not probable...that the Gosselin kids will be embarrassed to return to school due to the shenanigans of their parents, namely Kate. As nice as the school may be and as well meaning as the teachers, staff, and parents of the other kids may be, there is no doubt that the other students have read about Kate's ridiculous get ups, diva-ish and bitchy behavior, possible affair, and have seen pictures of her flashing her boobs everywhere. They have seen the negative press about what a bad mother Kate is thought to be. Kids the twins' age are incredibly Internet savvy, and even if their parents have taught them kindness, you can bet they have googled Kate. They must be curious to read about their schoolmate's notorious mother and to see pictures of her at their local grocery stores, etc. Even if the gosselin kids are not outwardly teased, you know that the other kids must talk about their sad home life. And you know the schoolmates have watched Kate Plus 8. Wouldnt you, if you went to school with the Gosselins? So Kate's shrieking, bragging, condescending treatment of others, grifting, Jon bashing and neglect of her kids is common knowledge in that school. Even something as simple as drinking Juicy Juice, eating eggs or talking about summer vacation may elicit snickers at school. So to all those Kate lovers who think her behavior is acceptable because she is 'doing what she must to support her kids', now do you think her ridiculous, narcissistic bitchiness is benign? And never mind the Kate lovers, how could Kate be such a slutty, lying, vain asshole and not realize that this would humiliate her kids? I hope, like you do, that the kids' classmates are kind to them, even though we all know that they know far too much about the Gosselins' private lives thanks to Kate's quest for fame and fortune.

Here is a pretty scathing review. It makes me so very happy that her real nature is being shown, but so very sad for those children. Too bad I can't adopt them, they would be much better off.
Also, take a look at the comments - she hides her own face on vacation, but could care less about the privacy of the children.
Or...and also doesn't bother to hide her purchased rack when she bends over. Nope, that is straight ahead, right in front of the camera.
Classy.

Any Jamie sightings lately? Seems like we haven't heard a peep about her in quite a while. After the months spent parading her around as Kate's manufactured new BFF, I wonder why there's been no sign of her lately.

IDModo said...

Steve has "seen her ugly side up close and personal"..IMO Steve may be the sort of man who likes to be the caretaker of a waiflike child-woman; a woman that can at different times be having a three year old's temper tantrum, and then become a sad little weeping victim of "the bad guys".What an opportunity for a man with a rescue fantasy!

Some men (and women too) find this combination irresistibly appealing, as they can step in, take control, and be seen as the knight in shining armour.

In these cases, the behaviour is not seen as ugly, but endearing; and the other person blindly makes allowances for it.

On one of the entertainment shows last night they had Betty White on and she was talking about doing some funny skit at the very beginning of the Emmy's with some other stars (is Kate a star???)

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

I have always said I wondered how it would have been tolerated if Jon had slapped Kate 12 times per episode while cackling about how funny he thought it was.

Minka's Tail said...

Jon's side of the divorce has always been:

Kate went on a book tour with Steve. She made him quit his job to watch the kids, possibly threatening him if he didn't. He rarely saw her, and grew suspicious of Steve, sharing his doubts with Jodie's family. One Kate, she announced the marriage was over, except they'd do an act for the cameras. Jon moved to the garage and began seeing other women--why not, since he was now more or less legally separated? He got caught, and unleashed the paps. Today, he can not speak to the press OR hold any job, as per his TLC contract.

Because Jon was silenced, people have forgotten his side of the story, while the "sheeple" version has been repeated: Jon refuses to work and quit his job on his own, Jon refused to go on tour, Jon made Kate hire a nanny anyway, then left the kids with her and started cheating. He does look pretty bad in this version, doesn't he?

It's interesting that now that there's some independent eyewitness testimony backing up something in Jon's story how surprised people are.

What's undeniable: it looks very bad for a married man to travel exclusively with a woman who he's rumored to be having an affair with. The fact that he hasn't stepped aside for "appearances" sake makes me think there's something more to this relationship.

My suspicion: the Neild's are living "separate lives" and Mrs. Neild probably doesn't care what he does, as long as he provides her some money. This is just my suspicion, of course.

Hambone said...

"If" Kate is carrying on with a married man, I sure hope someone is reminding her that she:

a) went on The 700 Club as a guest and professed her christianity on national tv.

b) has a christian book company
publishing her books.

c) made the church speaking enagagements rounds, talking
about her faith and collected love offerings from churchgoers for a living.

d) leaves yellow sticky notes all over the place with bible scripture.

e) has used her "faith" and "christianity" as a platform to boost her celebrity.

And she needs to be called on the carpet for fraud if this Steve rumor pans out to be true.


My personal thougths about why Kate no longer attends church is not because she became too famous. I believe she stopped going to church because she was feeling VERY convicted about her lifestyle and choices she was making. It's just easier for her to stop going to church so she won't feel guilty about exploiting her kids, carrying on with a married man, jet-setting around Hollywood, strutting around in bikinis, partying in nightclubs in NYC and LA, publicly trashing her ex, publicly yelling at her kids, wearing revealing/skimpy clothes, shunning friends and family, etc etc etc.

And there is something SERIOUSLY wrong with Zondervan if they choose to continue working with someone with a lifestyle like Kate's.

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

i feel so bad for Gina. to have your husband for years, cowtow to that cackling cow. and now sitting on the beach with her in her sparkly nude bikini that bigfoot wore on memorial day and on the beach playing touchy feely with their legs. he is not a bodyguard. posters on this great blog know their stuff! no futher mention of twist of kate, easing kiwi purse holder into kate's world, not allowing jon to come onto the property even to drop off the kids from school. she does not want him to find out that possibly steve has moved in. because where does he stay? it would look really bad for kate if it came out that steve moved in and he is still married. that spells only one word: homewrecker!
also remember when kate told the kids that she was going to hire a 6 foot 4 inch cop to make them behave. well, isn't steve 6'4? and a "kiwi cop"? to me the pieces of the puzzle are starting to come together. also in a very short time the kids were dragged from PA to Alaska to CA to PA then NC then back to PA, kate drops them off then kate and i am assuming steve the purse boy goes to NY for a 5 hour pampering session.

i hope the kids get loving teachers this year and make new friends that are good to them.

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

Well, it certainly wouldn't be the first time a wife has taken the pragmatic approach. The couple stays married but basically lead separate lives. The husband (assuming he is the primary income earner) agrees to deposit a certain amount of money into the wife's account each month. As long as both sides find this arrangement acceptable, it continues.

It seems to me that Mrs. Nield is either not putting up any sort of fuss about this arrangement, or she has expressed her dissatisfaction to her husband (as most wives would) but he chooses not to change the situation.

I guess the third option (and the one that would puzzle me most) is that Mrs. Nield finds nothing of concern in the situation. Having her husband spend the majority of his time away from home, in the presence of a single woman who treats Steve like a husband-in-waiting, doesn't bother her a bit. She's fully confident in her husband and her marriage and is sure it's as strong as the day they married.

txmom said...

I think Kate no longer goes to church because people know her 'by her fruits', as the bible says. Church goers have been burned by the heretic.

Also, since they have 'her number', she can't get money out of them, and isn't that what she is all about anyway??

I can't wait for Kate and purseboy to come out as a couple. I want to see how BM and the sheeple explain that one. geesh

You know what they say about preachers kids..Katie Irene is a perfect example. Apparently she was a rip in high school. She continues to make a mockery out of all things Christian.
I really think Cara and Mady will go and live with Jon pretty soon. The handwriting is on the wall, as the Bible says...

fidosmommy said...

I really don't think Steve Neild is anywhere near 6'4". He's about Kate's height. He's been seen in person and declared "short" by some.

Now the other bodyguard might very well be 6'4".

Bwhahahahahahahahahaha

Even in the 1% chance this is the case, she is a FOOL ! She is a FOOL for allowing Steve to put himself in a situation where he is gossiped about having an affair, and not considering how their children feel.

Perhaps Steve and Gina have a contract much like Kate and Jon had a contract ( where she permitted him to cheat as long as he still kept up the happily married sham ). Maybe it was Steve who gave Kate the idea of the contract in the first place, since maybe he and Gina had one. Where else would Kate get such and asinine idea? Maybe this is a New Zealand custom.

In any case, strong marriage or not, Steve and Kate are making a fool out of Gina and creating situations where she appears to be the little wifey who was the last to find out. I feel bad for her in one way, and feel like she has to be the biggest idiot in another for allowing this relationship between her husband and Kate to continue....innocent or not. It looks bad.

hayden said...

txmom said: ....."I can't wait for Kate and purseboy to come out as a couple. I want to see how BM and the sheeple explain that one. geesh."
--------------------------------
Well, let's see. When the relationship is officially announced with a People mag cover story, (my guess is that it will be the first or second week of January 2011) it will be made extremely clear that the Neilds were separated before Steve and Kate took up. That will be all the sheeple need to hear and all they will want to believe.
The magazine article could hypothetically contain such gems such as Kate exclaiming how special it is to her that they were friends first and then their relationship grew into more after the Neilds separated. She will say how it's hard to trust people and let them into her circle. She already trusted Steve because he had been in charge of guarding her and the kids for so long. Of course she will gush about how much the kids LOVE him. I also predict Steve will be questioned if he has been on the receiving end of Kate's famous "temper", he will laugh and say no. Kate will chime in and make a smart ass comment about how she doesn't have to treat him like a child, unlike some other people she knows because Steve doesn't behave like one.

Presented in such a fairy tale and sanitized manner, the sheeple will eat it right out of the trough and as usual, defend Kate to the end.
Although it will never happen, let's say Mrs. Neild would come out with an interview saying she was blindsided and she and Steve were not seperated. Because that is not want to hear or believe about their idol, they would go on the usual rampage against Mrs. N., just as they have in the past with anyone else who dares to speak out against Kate.

Kate has a history of hiding things from her viewers. First it was her wealth, then the mansion, then her marriage ending, then the amount of help she has, then her wealth again, now it is Steve, and of course she lies about her botox, plastic surgery and complete transforation - about her teeth she said "I take good care of them". No cow, you capped them, brushing and flossing doesn't provide those results. Kate is a pathological liar, something you need to be on tv apparently.

Not ALL preachers' kids fit the stigma associated with them. I've known some mighty fine children of ministers...went to college with many of them. How does one know that she was a rip in high school? Have her classmates come out and made statements? I must have missed that...was this on the internet? What was said?

Something not media or tv related. does not have to be fancy sounding. just get certified in something

It will give him a sense of accomplishment and eventually show his kids that he wasnt prepared to live off of their hard work

this will earn him the respect of many and will open doors for him. it will show he has control over his life and not tlc.

2badsosad said...

Ms. Kate Irene feels the need to cover HER face from paparrazi, but finds it parentally appropriate for the 'paps' to take photos of her eight MINOR children. I think its safe to say that Kate has ZERO parental instinct when it comes to protecting her children.

This is me said...

Here is the scenerio for the Steve/Kate annoucement as a couple:

Steve and Gina indeed have a similar agreement to the one that Jon and Kate had. In that they were broke up, but did not publisize it nor make it legal. The agreement is that they can each date....

Stupid Jon did so publically...and fell right into Kate's trap!

That trap worked so well, that they will soon do the same thing with Mrs. Neild. Paps will soon catch her 'dating' someone else...and Steve will be the "wronged" spouse in the relationship....Kate will of course comfort him, and they will "fall in love"...through mutual misery love will spring! Isn't that just a relationship made in the movies?!! America will eat it up...

I tell you what, if I was Gina, I would NEVER give Kate this satisfaction...I would not date; and I would never allow myself to be seen even CLOSE to another man! Be smarter than Jon, Gina. Vengeance is the Lord's...but he has been known to allow us a part in it! USE YOUR POWER! Show up, as "Kate's good friend"; at her house; at the beach; during filming....get your own pictures, of the truth out to the public! You know people and have friends on the inside...get the true pictures of your husband and his girlfriend, out to the public before they screw you over! Take a lesson from Jon's situation, and don't believe what they say to you....

Listen, Kate deserves to be treated the same way she has treated others; after all Jesus says that we should treat others the way that we want to be treated...and in the "Lord's Prayer" Kate has prayed, "forgive us as we forgive others..." and Kate has never forgiven anyone....so, logic would dictate that Kate WANTS to be treated the way she treated Jon...she doesn't want to be forgiven for her faults....she Wants to be exposed the way she exposed Jon...because she says she is a follower of Jesus, right?

Hippi Chick

Tell Jon that there are a lot of us who know he is the good, loving, nurturing parent. Tell him to go get a regular 9:00 to 5:00 job. I believe someone stated that his contract with TLC does not prohibit him from working, just working in the entertiainment industry. He can still get a job in some other industry. I thhink he thinks he will never be able to support his children without TLC. Not True. Tell him that he does not need TLC or to make a lot of money to support his children. He needs to get away from TLC. Do not sign any more contracts with them. Get a regular job, refuse to let your kids be filmed anymore, get custody of them away from that crazy/self-absorbed/sel-surving/dillusionial/disgusting succubus and give them a normal life. With his job income, child support from the succubus, and government programs that are out there for low income families he can provide for his kids on his own, until such time that he no longer needs to.

Both of my parents worked all of there lives and raised there nine children. Yes it was a constant struggle to keep us clothed, fed and roof over our heads. But they managed to get it done. There were some government programs that we qualifed for. It can be done.

Tx mom,

I have to agree with you about Kate and church. I do not believe she goes. They were Jon and her first source of income and when they hit the big time, they stopped the church circuit and left many churches hanging after they gave deposits for appearances. The "christian thing" I really believe it was part of their act to gain sympathy from the public. And it worked, at least for awhile. Money is her God now, and she is willing to give up family and friends for it. Sad.

Charlene said...

Kate shot to fame through the series Jon And Kate Plus 8 which followed the fortune of her and ex-husband Jon and their huge brood.

Viewers became transfixed as the couple struggled with family life and ultimately split after he had an affair with the nanny.

But Kate has gone from strength to strength after ditching her womanising husband.
She has undergone a dramatic make-over and appeared as a contestant on Dancing With the Stars – the US version of Strictly Come Dancing.
Meanwhile Jon, 33, has lurched from scandal to scandal and has been dropped from the show that made him famous which has been renamed Kate

Do people really believe that is the reason the marriage ended? It ticks me off that Jon never defends himself over articles like this!! TLC must be paying him alot of money to keep his mouth shut. I don't know about all of you guys, but no amount of money would keep me quiet or allow my children to be made to work the way they are.

I thought since Kate thinks she has "arrived" and likes all the hollywood drama. I too believe she has much more going on with Steve, and I bet she enjoys the the drama of the potential affair news. Those two are ridiculous and deserve a stupid hollywood name when it all comes out. Kave are going to have to go public eventually, they are not fooling us. Ka(kate)& ve(steve) LOL!

She also has a closet stuffed with hundreds of bras, from her attempts to locate Khate's elusive "good bra."

@ Lukebandit- No worries... You can use whichever handle you like! 'E! News' started calling them both ORANGE too, after Lady Gaga. I love your posts (and wish Jon would drink lite beer too).

@ Hippie Chick- Steve Neild, TLC's paid "lova'h" IS hysterical! HAHAHAHAHAHA... (And he's nowhere near 6'4"-- more like 5'8".)

@ Jane in CA- You are so right. The Kate and Steve "security gig"... JIG IS UP!

Kate doesn't go to Church anymore because she is a selfish pig, and only cares about freebies and cash. If the community worship centers are not paying her to be there, why on earth would she attend? Her intentions were very clear from day one. Use her phony faith to fleece America... Grift money and become rich taking from others, with families of their own... and many with much less to offer. Sick, sick, sick times 8... I say!

ihatefrogs said...

IIRC, Kate admitted to not attending church as often as she should and gave the excuse of 'it' was something they did as a family unit and it was just too difficult for her to attend on her own. I think a significant amount of time has passed since the J & K divorce and the last time 'they' attended church as a family. Kate certainly doesnt seem to have a problem doing other things they did as a 'family', ie VACATION. Kate made ALOT of money speaking about her christian values and how her faith played such a fundamental role in everything from her decision not to selective reduce to 'God's' approval of their decision to participate in a reality tv show. Clearly, Kate has moved on and forward since her divorce. What's her excuse now?

Not to mention the invisible bra -- the one that you can wear under your back-less swimsuits, and it doesn't connect anywhere in the back. You can also wear them under the most revealing skanky tops and you can't see where the bra ends or begins! In fact, your nips almost show, and there is still no sign of a bra.

Well, maybe Gina Neild will write a book; "The Bodyguard I Loved, & the Bitch Who Stole Him Away: All the Behind Scene Secrets of Kate and Steve, the Booby-Guard." by Gina Neild.
It would fly off the shelves!!

Not-so-secret #1- Steve helps Kate "pick a cup size". Gina, at home, seethes at this prospect, wondering why Steve no longer touches her cups.

Not-so-secret #2- Steve travels all the continental U.S. with Kate & her kids, telling her she looks fantastic in her bikini, & plays footsie with Kate. Gina, at home, seethes, wondering why Steve never takes her anywhere, never tells her she looks fantastic in her bikini and, well, doesn't even sleep in their bed. Ever.

Not-so-secret #3- Steve spends 4th of July at Kate's, while Kate, looking like Sasquatch, lumbers around her yard, dodging the paparazzi she invited in, yelling, "Steve, make it go away, hehehe". Gina, at home, seethes, wondering why she wasn't invited, and wondering why Steve has his eye on the homely behemoth. Put on a cover-up, you home-wrecker!

Not-so-secret #4- Steve is practically parenting Kate's 8 kids. Gina, at home seethes, wondering why he's not parenting his own DAMN KIDS!!

That's just the tip of the ice burg
And only chapter 1.

Did my homework and went back to a tour of Kate's when she sported the possum hairstyle and no, Steve was not wearing a wedding ring then.

Still in Canada said...

Interesting that any of Kate's "denials" of an inappropriate relationship with Steve, always state something along the lines "the Neild's are close family friends and have been for 9 years". If this is so, I don't recall Jon ever validating her statement, or agreeing with it. In fact, if that was the case, why after so many years as "close family friends" would he suddenly become suspicious of Steve and Kate?? Things that make ya wonder?....

People say Jon should get a real job, but in reality anything he makes will probably just go directly to Khate for child support. I can understand why he would rather just take TLC's money that goes directly to her instead of doing that and working. He should have never sold out his kids to begin with and should have just taken a job. She would have still tried to get most of it in support and he'd be very poor. But now that he is under contract with TLC, why would he want to go out and work 9-5 only to have her go straight to court and try to claim it or her greedy self? She would love that.

Flabbergasted said...

I lurk on this site a lot but have never posted, but this time I just have to! I was looking through this photo gallery on US (http://www.usmagazine.com/celebritynews/photos/kate-gosselins-summer-beauty-faux-pas-2010207/) and this is what I counted:

1. Every two weeks, Kate visits Ulta and Sally Beauty Supply for hair and cosmetic products (so she runs out of cosmetics every two weeks!!).
2. She runs outdoors or on the treadmill and rides her exercise bike every day - sometimes twice a day.
3. She drives 44 miles to the nearest Whole Foods to buy organic - so a journey of almost an hour each way.
4. She visits Ted Gibson's salon (I vaguely remember reading that it was in NY) monthly to maintain her extensions.
5. She visits Planet Nails & Tans Salon once a week or more for her nails.
6. She goes tanning three times a week.

Even taking all of the above with a huge grain of salt, that level of self absorption is completely ridiculous. Of course, it doesn't mention the time spent getting botox, plastic surgery, visiting daytime talk shows etc. I doubt even rich childless socialites spend THAT much time on themselves. GAH!

Laura D. said...

Hippie Chick, we're all waiting with baited breath for someone, anyone, to break the shroud of secret silence, be it be Mrs. Nield or one of the Gosselin kids. Until that happens there will always be mis/interpretation and speculation. I firmly believe though, that everyone within six degrees of separation, including the kids, have signed confidentiality agreements.

In what industry, with his education, skills, experience and work history, will he be able to make $20,000 a month to pay child support by working a 9 to 5 job? He also needs to be able to support himself.

Any suggestions?

Invisible Monkey said...

Wasn't the mansion supposed to be for the kids? I thought that when Jon has his visits, Kate would go to the hotel.

When was the last time she had to leave the mansion?

Now Jon can't even drive up the van onto the property?

Katie is so good at twisting things to her benefit.

cossysmom said...

I tried to watch the "behind the scenes" episode of the Birthday Surprise. We learned such interesting things: one of the sextuplet's favorite snacks is toasted almonds, and Kate and Jamie have been best friends for 9 years after meeting at church! I could only take this for so long and changed the channel. But a thought occurred to me as I saw part of the scene in the airport. If Kate is as big a celebrity as she thinks she is, why were they not in the VIP lounge? TLC is clearly trying to make her look like a "regular" mother taking her kids on vacation. Even regular people pay a fee for the VIP privileges if they are frequent fliers. We are constantly seeing Kate jetting of "hither, tither and yon"--are you telling me she doesn't use the VIP lounge?? I've had enough of this woman. Who exactly does TLC think they're fooling?

Minka's Tail said...

I just did a child support calculator for Pennsylvania. I put down his salary as $5000 a month--probably more than he would really make as a helpdesk guy, but still a "normal" salary. I put her salary down as $25,000 a month--probably it's a lot more, but that's the minimum it would be. I put the cost of the nannies as $8000 a month--figure, she has 4, and she probably pays about $500 a week.

It came out to $1333 a month for 7 kids (the highest it went up to). So maybe, with kid #8, he'd pay $1500 or so. A lot less than $20,000.

So Jon can't get a job, because it would cost Kate $18,500 a month!

I believe he signed a contract where for $25,000 a month, he would disappear, keep quiet and let the kids be filmed. Oh, and agree to give $20,000 back to the ex as "child support." In return, he gets a comfy $60,000 for doing nothing. Meanwhile, Kate would stay in the spotlight (crucial, seeing how all her non-kid endeavors have fared), earn many thousands a month and add $20,000 on top of that.

So it works out for everyone. Jon: Money for nothing. Kate: a tremendous amount of money and continued fame as a "single mom." Kids: Get to have fun for a few minutes at a time on trips, when not waiting for cameras to get set up.

These old eyes and my brain does funny things.... I read Kiwi gigolo as Kiwigolo. Great name for Steve.

IDModo said...

Nine to Five- If Jon were working in another industry and not being paid by TLC, his child support would not be $20,000 a month. He would be able to go to court and have it revised on the basis of his new earnings.

Still, I believe Kate would petition to have every penny that she could grab from the new salary. And you can bet the kids' standard of living would change radically without that $20,000 a month, because it's probably paying their private school tuition among other things.Jon might not want to risk the kids being removed from a school that is, from all reports, a sanctuary for those children.

KateIsADisgrace said...

I caught about 45 seconds of the airboat ride in Florida last night. It was when the guide pulled the boat up to the alligator. Dear god in heaven......Kate was screeching and flapping her arms like a demented seagulls wanting the guy to pull back. Who in their right mind would think that an alligator had the ability to launch out of the air and into the boat and attack her? All of this was a very contrived plan to draw attention to herself. To feign 'little girl fright'. To be the center of attention. In all of my years, I have NEVER run across another human who makes my skin crawl more. I get myself in knots wondering why nobody ever calls her on her sh*t. Why hasn't someone backed this boob-head against a wall and blasted her with the truth? I have to turn the channel because I'm so disgusted with her. And the kids are turning into little brats. I hate to even say that because kids are born innocent and it is the adult's job to mold them into productive members of the society. But, I was taken aback at their behavior. It is so sad that this woman has 8 miracles and hasn't done a darn thing to be a good example for them.

-------------
Doesn't a judge order child support proportional to the parent's ability to pay? In other words, Jon would always have to pay a percentage of his income, but could petition to have that 20,000 reduced once his income and savings are reduced?

I have two suggestions for Jon, ones that would play on his genial nature and his celebrity. One would be to take a course and get a realtor's license. For some reason, I think he would be good in residential real estate.

The second would be to get certified as a mechanic on particular brand of cars or motorcycles. Before you laugh, let me say that a friend's husband left a lucrative but miserable life on Wall St. to become a certified (and happy and fulfilled) Honda mechanic about fifteen years ago. A lot of what goes into diagnosing car problems is computers anyway. With his name, Jon could open his own garage.

In both cases, I think Jon's fame would draw in customers, and he seems to have great potential as a friendly, soft-sell agent or mechanic.

No, not 20,000 a month, but the kids don't NEED that much support because they don't NEED to live as lavishly as they do now.

I really don't think Steve Neild is anywhere near 6'4". He's about Kate's height. He's been seen in person and declared "short" by some.

I personally saw Kate and Steve at Downtown Disney this May. It was really a surprise to me to see how short both of them are since they do appear to be taller in photographs and on tv. I am 5'10" and I doubt Steve was more than say 5'7". Kate appeared to be approximately the same height as Steve but then maybe she had on some sort of heeled shoes (I didn't look).

Kate was paying for something at a checkout counter, so I never saw the front of her, plus she was sort of blocked in by a couple of Disney associates for protection from her rabid fans (?) of which I saw absolutely ZERO. No one seemed the slightest bit interested in her.

emschick1128 said...

Jon would not have to pay 22k per month if he had a regular job. He would pay a certain percentage that was in line with his income. I have been to court many times with my ex and they base it on your income and expenses. Thats how it works in MA and I believe most states are the same. I believe he does have a chose. He is probably getting his support payments made by TLC and some sort of income from them. I think Jon is a desent person but needs to grow a set and do whats right for his kids. Just saw the pics of Kate on ROL wearing her magic bra and picking up more freebies from the Peace, Love clothing place. Does going green include using paper plates all the time and 25 plastic bags when grocery shopping?

Mary said...

Hi

You are all wrong about Kate. If they went to church Kate would have to give them some of her money and I am sure the church asks some families to give a little more sometimes because a family might need it because of some thing A fire, loss of job, illness. Kate does not just give her money away unless a camera is there.

the church will not let camera into church

Kids might talk about what is going on at home

Kate is fooling around with a married man

Church asked her to leave. Not Jon or Kids just Kate. Kate put her nose in air and ignores people unless the have something free to give her and it must be cash or new. If new she can see on ebay the minute she comes home.

JacJac said...

Just a word of warning. Comment on SW at your own risk!!! Unless, of course you go on there to proclaim to the world what a wonderful, loving, caring parent Kate is. They will literally rip you to shreds and burn the evidence if you even mention the kids enjoy being around Jon. And they accuse others of hating? Makes you wonder what universe their on.....

Jake said...

Just a couple of observations -

1) If Jon gets a job making much less than he is making from TLC right now, the amount of his child support will be reduced. The $20,000/month was based on the income they both reported when the figure was set. People get there child support payments adjusted all the time for changes in circumstances.

2) How do we know that Gina Neild does not support the relationship between Steve and Kate whatever it is? It is a huge assumption to expect that she is upset as she has been seen spending holidays and other occassions with Kate. Given that Steve is still at Kate's side well over a year after affair talk started, I expect Gina is not livid over the situation. Maybe she likes the money it brings in or maybe she is glad to have him gone a lot for her own reasons.

3) It doesn't take confidentiality agreements to keep lots of insiders silent. It just takes the kind of loving concern for the kids that Beth Carson shows. I am sure many insiders are loathe to air any more dirty laundry in public for the sake of the kids.

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

As if that somehow proves the non-existence of an affair. I've seen and I'm sure many of you have seen and known about people who had affairs with brothers (or sisters) in law, with the best friends of their spouses, etc. Close ties often mean you are thrown together with someone who is not your spouse on a regular basis and if you have a wandering eye, nature more easily takes it course with whoever is right on the spot.

As others have pointed out, Kate is terrible at math. How have the Neilds been close family friends for nine years, when the twin girls are just now 10 years old? It's complete nonsense.

Jane in CA said...

I don't believe Kate ever was particularly religious, despite the fact that her father is a minister. She may have attended church as a girl and young woman, but I really doubt she ever truly had deep spiritual beliefs. Her life has been shaped from early on by wanting what she couldn't have, and formulating a plan to get those material things she obsessively craved.

The only reason she and Jon went to church while the earlier seasons were being filmed was for two reasons:
1. To speak to church members before asking them for love donations; i.e., only went for financial gain and

2. To be filmed by TLC (shown dropping children off to child care, shown sitting in the pew - with Steve Neild behind them??? - shown picking children up from child care). There was a very early episode where Jon is shown putting all the babies in the van one at a time for church. In the one church episode, Kate explains how they attend a church that's nearly an hour away from their home because "they leave us alone." Clearly, they didn't go for fellowship. I doubt they went on any regular sort of basis. It was done for show, to appear to be devout, to get ratings and to continue to get love offerings until they could earn more money via TLC.

The only time Kate would consider setting foot in a church again would be for the payment of a large sum of money. Sadly, I don't believe there is a spiritual bone in her body.

You know how you can sometimes root for the "bad guy" in a movie or on a tv show. You find what the character does wrong or sinful or otherwise objectionable, but then you see a glimmer of their humanity, a moment of kindness toward another or maybe a glimpse of a boyish smile -- something hooks you and you empathize with that character a little bit. Not so with Kate, because there just isn't one likable thing about her. I think we could forgive a lot of her behavior if we saw and believed she truly loved her children, hugged and cuddled with them, made them feel loved. We would feel empathy if we believed she was once a good and loving mom who lost her way and got blindsided by fame.

But she is exactly where she wants to be, and is exactly who she wants to be. She had those children on purpose to make them work to earn a lot of money for her and her alone. Greed, avarice, envy, calculation, and selfishness. Those are her character traits. I simply can find no redeeming features in Kate at all.

She's Such a Phoney said...

Just finished reading Z on TV and he quoted TLC's new promo of Khate+8 in NYC. It ends with "But, will Kate be able to enjoy a trip with her kids or will the record breaking summer heat and the pressures of traveling in a big city with eight kids cause Kate to lose her cool?" TLC is using Khate's meltdowns as an enticement to watch this "train wreck". They don't care if the meltdowns are directed at the kids, just so she displays them whether real or not. TLC is so low to go this route and need I say anymore for Khate? Latest pictures of these kids show them to be bewildered and just not happy. When it seems no one is looking they appear rather sad. And yet ... no one is really stopping this from continuing. To rob children of their childhood and possibly ruin or severely scar them for life has to be the eighth deadly sin! I hope that no one tunes in to watch this fiasco!

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

Oh, come on, there are plenty of families with 8 children who are supported by the PARENTS, not the CHILDREN!

Child support is NOT the issue. PA courts will modify child support based on the actual income of the parent. The idiot father of these children is NOT tied into providing $20,000 a month for his children forever. He's required to pay whatever the court determines his his children's share of his earnings. If his income drops, he returns to court, and the court alters the dollar amount.

Which, by the way, is a better deal for the children than the CHILDREN being required to keep their idiot mother in plastic surgery, luxury trips, fake tans and the huge number of personal indulgences the CHILDREN'S EARNINGS are currently providing for her.

Or it would be if the idiot mother wasn't the one holding the purse strings for the child support she's paid by the idiot father.

E said...

I don't know how it works in PA, but the order for support goes by what the parent was making at the time of the split. If they lose their job, and can't afford the $ ordered by the court, then they have to petition the court to get the amount reduced.

COnewbie said...

Just saw INF pictures of the handoff of the kids. Seems that Katie is trying to cover her behind, otherwise WHY would she:
1. Drive her own kids to the gate when she has her not-a-nannys
2. Hold up her precious pink phone to the van windows.

Seems to me she is trying to prove that the kids cry when she leaves them too by recording it on her phone. Wonder if all she heard were screams of joy saying "DADDY."

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

He can petition the court, but there's no guarantee. They look at earning POTENTIAL. If it can be proven that he could get a job in the entertainment industry (once TLC cuts him loose), that will figure in the amount he must pay. I've seen it happen several times and the payments were not reduced because the husband was ordered to get a job equivalent to the previous job...the one on which child support was based when they split.

She will fight that the kids need money to support them in the manner in which they have been accustomed. If he's hoarding cash somewhere, that will also be taken into consideration.

PA Mom Knows said...

"If his income drops, he returns to court, and the court alters the dollar amount."

---------

In your dreams! I've seen a husband go to court over and over again to have the payments reduced and it didn't happen. The husband had re-married, was forced to take another job of less pay, had three children by the second marriage to support, and still was required to GET A JOB that would generate enough income to pay the amount to his ex that was originally ordered.

In a perfect world, we'd hope that courts would take the reduced income into consideration. However, we all know that justice doesn't always prevail.

In fact, the ex-wife, angry because he tried to get the amount reduced, then dragged the husband back into court and he was ordered to PAY MORE support when, in fact, he was barely able to afford what he had been paying all along.

I didn't see it that way at all. I saw her flash the pink phone toward the van, but I saw it as a wave goodbye to a kid or 6.

Also, there was sound on the video.
When Kate opened the door, there was silence. When Jon got in, there was silence. I'm not sure they were upset at this
exchange. We would have heard something, even if it was muffled by the camera and the engine.

You know, Kate should not even be referred to as a single mother of 8. Because she is a DIVORCED mother of 8. Single means: you have never been married. JMO

emschick1128 said...

I agree that men are often treated unfairly by the court system but there is no way a judge would ever make Jon even come close to paying the amount of money he now is after TLC kicks him to the curb. They also very much take the womans income and assests in to the mix and Kate is certainly much better off I'm sure than Jon. I was working 2 jobs as an RN one time when I went to court with my ex and it worked very much against me since I made more than him. Furthermore after Kate gets cut loose TLC I think there future is finished in the so called entertainment business or at least lets hope so.

About The Huffington Post article of the latest Gosselin beach film shoot (AKA The Not-A-Vacation), what continues to disturb me are these excerpts:

"...one of the boys hung back, looking longingly at the water…his mom hadn't noticed, but eventually one of the crew ran back and whisked him into line…” (how can you not notice that you’ve got a kid missing at the beach, even momentarily?)

or how about this one, “…the kids were forced to fly large, expensive-looking kites for the cameras even though the wind was blowing more than 20 miles per hour, too fast for small boats to go out…” (gee, that must have been an enjoyable interlude)

and “…’she is not a classy person,’ said a woman who had seen Kate, the kids and cameras invade the Bald Head Island Club pool the day before, ‘just talking on her phone, ignoring her kids’…”

with this last zinger, “…the crew coaxing the tired, bored kids to play, Kate standing over them pointing her fingers and fixing her hair….”

Wow, sounds like a great time for the Gosselin 8. How we spent (and earned) our summer “vacation”…as props for Mom’s show.

Jake poster, I completley agree with you.

Ask Jon to tweet a picture of him wearing an orange t-shirt if he agrees the kids should not be filming for TLC. I think we already know how he feels about Kate!
