Has anyone seen the pics of Kate at the shoe store? What a goofy top she has on, and as always the kids are dressed alike. And no happy kids either. Also, has anyone notice that Kate in a lot of recent pics looks aged? Like she looks a lot older than 35. She is aging un-gracefully. I also don't see why some of the tups were held back from Kindergarden last year. Kate is raising a group or unit of children, not individuals. Like I have said, 3 children the rest are clones. JMO

Who wears a black t-shirt,short white skirt and black gladiator heels when they are a 35yo woman and mother of 8,yes 8 kids?? She is so pathetic. I'd love to see Stacey and Clinton get their hands on her. But I'm sure she thinks she has great style. YUK

*****************************************************
NOOOOO oh please god no! If there's one thing that has given me one glimmer of hope for TLC it's the fact that "What Not To Wear" has stayed true to its original premise, and that, despite heavy hints from Khate, Clinton and Stacey have escaped having a crossover episode forced on them. At one point I think that Khate said, in an interview or somewhere, that it would be so great to be on WNTW and discuss the evolution of "her style" with Clinton and Stacey. After forcing her way onto "Say Yes To the Dress", I was seriously afeared that Khate would pollute the one non-freak show left on TLC, but so far they've been spared. I like to think that S & C stood up to the network and refused to work with the b****.

Jane in California said...
Incidentally, both twins have beautiful features. It looks like Cara is a bit taller than Mady. Out of the 8 children, these two probably have the best chance of turning out "ok" since Kate and TLC seem to focus more on the youngest six.
-----------------

I agree on both, the girls do have striking features & kate's lack of attention as far as the twins are concerned will be a blessing in disguise. You don't really want to be the focus of a narcissistic parent's attention. Yes they'll probably need a good therapist regardless, but being in a narcissists favour can mess a person up as badly as being in their disfavour, from everything I've read & seen for myself. In my own experience, if you can be invisible to them then that's even better.

Hard to Keep Loving Jon said...

I cannot remember which famous "star" went to Rachel Zoe and got a "daytime" wardrobe which included outfits for taking/picking up kids. We all read the various sites and see what the actual stars are wearing. Why doesn't Radar convulse over them? Why/how does FOL focus on that 2bit fame ho? Does TLC really/truly have THAT much power?

maggie said...

From last week's thread, I think there is a misunderstanding about Jon's salary that TLC pays him. According to transcripts on Nancy Grace's website, Mr. List was Jon's attorney. He said that TLC was paying Jon $5,000 per month in salary. Again,$5,000 per month.

Then Jon is (or was) paying Kate $20,000 per month in child support. According to Mr. List this money was put into a type of escrow account that Jon could not touch. TLC has never paid Jon $25,000 per month--only $,5000.

Mr. List never said where Jon's $20,000 per month in escrow came from. Jon no longer owns the house/property. Jon & Kate put down around $300,000 down payment per public records. They made monthly payments around $10,000 per month. They bought the house in October 2008 and the divorce was settled in Dec. 2009. So they made $140,000in joint house payments. The equity in the house when they divorce was around $440,000. Half of that was Jon's. Kate probably paid Jon his share of the equity of $220,000. Plus Jon probably had some other cash from the divorce. Mr. List did say the money in escrow was running out.

Jon's equity from the house was probably the money put aside in escrow for child support payments. That way Jon couldn't touch it. I am guessing but it sounds reasonable to me.

maggie said...

Go to Radaronline and look at the picture were the little kids are covering their eyes and circling the post. One of the twins is carrying one of them away and Kate is carrying Joel. Very strange.

Could it be that the sextuplets were in their way rebelling?

Pony said...

I think that the reason all of the sextuplets were kept in pre-K last year was that Kate and TLC wanted them available for filming at least a couple of days a week. (Remember the walking visit to the organic dairy farm?) Then Jon momentarily got a spine and refused to let them be filmed at all. Then TLC and Kate sued him and he caved, or perhaps he didn't cave; perhaps he lost outright. Since all of the divorce and custody proceedings have taken place behind closed doors in a county without open access to divorce/custody records, we shall never know the truth. What we do know is that PA family courts work differently than the courts in most states.

I do agree that Kate doesn't seem to view the sextuplets as individuals but as a cohesive group.

Tucson Mom of 3 said...

Did you notice in the 3 different shopping trips that are posted on radar on line that cara and mady are wearing some of the same clothes in each shopping adventure. They change shirts but one of them has on white shorts and the other one has on a denim skirt in all the pictures.

Kate on the other hand has on 3 different totally put together outfits with matching shoes. I guess they want us to assume these shopping trips happened on different days. I don't get it. I don't get what reality they are living in.

meem said...

Several years ago I was researching breast reduction surgery. In my reading I also ran into information about breast lifts and augmentation. One thing I remember reading about was a procedure where your own tissue can form a type of "internal bra". Could this surgical procedure be what Kate is refering to as "I got a good bra?"

Mary said...

Hi

In my post I meant she white shorts the button is not buttoned and the zipper is not zipp.

-----
I don't think it's about whether TLC has "power" but rather deep pockets. Kate is likely always on Radar's website because TLC pays for them to post pictures of her and print glowing (and ridiculous) captions about her. TLC is probably writing the captions as well. So it's a win/win for everyone, except of course the kids.

Anne said...

So they close the store for Kate and crew - hence the crowd on the sidewalk. We've seen numerous photos of Kate shopping and is there ever a crowd gathered - NO.

She claims if they quit the show, all the paparazzi negatives will remain. It's been revealed this week that there is 1 paparazzi and as we've seen, Kate garners no attention unless she's followed by a camera crew and boom mike.

Seriously, if you're out shopping and you spot a camera crew and a guy with a boom mike following someone wouldn't most of us go investigate what the heck is going on.

This week's shopping photos - filming vs. non-filming trips - confirms it's not Kate's celebrity grabbing people's attention when she's in public, it's the massive entourage with cameras, boom mikes, bodyguards, etc. that follows when filming.

maggie said...

Mr. List never said where Jon's $20,000 per month in escrow came from. Jon no longer owns the house/property.


He did on the Nancy Grace Show. When the divorce was final, Jon received what? 30% of the family assets.

Jon also probably had some money of his own sitting in the bank from the previous "entertainment shows" he appeared in before TLC put a stop to it.

Mr List also said that the money "wont last" as Jon isn't working.

After the "settlement with TLC", I'm sure Kate DROPPED the Child Support Payments or REDUCED it.

Kate used the 20k a month child support payments to back Jon into a corner. That, combined with TLC's lawsuit AND the Courts putting a stop to Jon's Paid media appearance...

NT said...

So,if you thought Kate was trampy looking shopping for shoes,wait till you see her outfit while they were out shopping on Saturday. Of course she was being filmed and you know that was all planned by her so TLC would pick up the tab. Now Steve is driving the van. He's moving closer to the replacement hubby position. I can't believe how trashy she looks. Pics can be found at gossip center.

K8STFU said...

How about the wild theory that there were crowds outside the store because people actually wanted to purchase shoes and were waiting for Queenie to get her lazy ass outta there.

winsomeone said...

Saw pics of the kids in the shoe store, getting their feet measured. The kids were barefoot! I think where I live you can't try on shoes unless you are wearing some sort of foot
covering.If you are barefoot, they have some cheap, disposable footies they give you. Plus, the ones wearing sneakers barefoot in this heat, must have sweaty, smelly feet. Sure wouldn't want to buy shoes at that store.

stupidisasstupiddoes said...

Few comments:

1. As a consumer, if I had visited a store during regular business hours, only to find that the store had been closed to public access because Kate + 8 + her filming entourage was there, I would boycott the store. My kids need shoes too, but I'll take MY hard earned $$$ elsewhere!

2. Kate's attire. I am not so much offended by WHAT Kate wears but her various inappropriate clothing choices. You are shopping for your kids, dropping your kids off at school etc...not going to a club or a night out on the town. Boobage hanging out in view of (what I assume) to be school/faculty personal. TACKY TACKY

3. The Kate + 8 'series of specials' has become a non stop traveling 'circus' with the children WORKING daily, weekly, monthly consistently! Kate YOU are a BAD mom !

Angel 1 said...

Boy that's some top she's wearing in the shoe store. Really makes it obvious that she had the 'girls' worked on.
I take it Steve drove/parked the van? He needs to learn to park straight, as he parks like an idiot. Crooked in the space. More and more I see that, and it just bugs.

txmom said...

So, now Steve drives the van? I can't WAIT until they come out as a couple, BM has a lot of explaining to do!! (and she knows that time is coming, too).

There is no way that shrew did not have a boob job. Kate, you are the stupidest woman on the planet to tell us you didn't. You have proven yourself to be a liar and a fraud. Congratulations!!
Your demise will be swift and humiliating. I would hate to think everyone on the planet hated me for how I treated my children.

Perhaps she wears the shoes as a turn-on for Steve? I have always thought the necklaces are from him, to mark two anniversaries together.

I guess the kids can't film when school starts, so she is squeezing every last penny out of them before filming stops. Hey Kate, we don't care if you have a show! Just let the kids alone!!
Can you imagine denying your child the simple joy of going to mcds for a happy meal? she has ruined these kids' lives--they will never know what it is like to be normal.

txmom said...

http://www.gossipcenter.com/kate-gosselin/photo/kate-gosselin-1235

I kid you not, most of her boob is exposed. my goodness.

God shall not be mocked. You have paved your road to hell Kate. All for the love of money.

txmom said...

I don't see too many men lined up in front of women with children. Face it, most men aren't that interested in raising someone else's kids. And this shrew has EIGHT kids. I can't imagine there are a lot of men interested in that!!

TLC is laughing all the way to the bank. And when Kate's show (or shows) tank? She is going to have a lot of bills in that purse, this time for real. lol. And no one will care.

Jane in CA said...

I think I'm going to call Neild either "Kate's male companion" or "Jon 2.0" from here on. Seems he's being nudged into the slot formerly held by Jon as general gopher, driver, purse carrier, and soon, the one she will will mock for knowing nothing and bumbling through life somehow.

There is no way he is a body guard.

As to her shoe shopping outfit - oy vey! You just can't teach class, even if Katie Irene was interested in trying to attain some. The plunging neckline of her top, going braless, the fugly shiny black shorts, and the even fuglier black sandals. She looks like she's wearing the skanky adult line of Garanimals.

What's so strange to me is that Kate clearly has worked hard on her body. Her legs are slim, toned and tan. Yet she almost always manages to look trashy and dumpy. I think it's partly to do with the fact she has no waistline. She's built like a fireplug. She worsens the effect by not wearing clothes that address that issue and instead emphasize it. She thinks showing a lot of boob will make it all work. Nope, just desperate.

Gina said...

Kate is scary. She always looks so angry and mean.

Can you imagine having this "thing" as your mother?

Cry Me a RIver said...

I think she has defnitely gone back for more in the booby department. That is the way it is recommnended so that the skin can catch up. She is starting to look a litle S&Mish. Maybe she is dressing that way for Steve. I thinks he likes all the attention -job security, not that he needs it any longer.

Just wait until she thinks she has him hooked and turns shrewish on him like she did Jon. It is in her nature.

That is the first time I have seen her carry one of those kids in forever. I wonder what the occasion was for that?

As far as the kids covering up, I think she is telling them to do that myself, so that if you want to see the kids you have to watch the show. And I think also she is mad at her lone photographer, Chris, who used to lead her around to her photo ops, seems to have fallen out of favor.

Poor kids let these people photograph and film you but not those people.

And what is up with all the photos. She is everywhere again. The womah is a tramp. I wish she could just go ahead and do her playboy thing (or maybe Hustler would be more her style) so she will stop flashing those things around like she does. I don't think I have ever seen anyone more proud of her store-bought boobs.

NoUse4Kate said...

Wow! The shopping pictures are hilarious! K8 has outdone herself this time. She looks like a cheap slut at a carnival trying to pick up some guy. The only thing missing is the cigarette. ROFL @ Katie Irene.

I showed my 15 year old daughter some pics of Hate and asked if she'd mind if I wore clothes like that. She gave me a disgusted look and said she would be mortified and that I had better not ever dress like that. lol

Tizzie said...

Just saw this on BabyMama's blog:

"I finally got the chance to go to our "Piranha 3D lol" GWOP recently and saw that the site is practically on snooze. A size that once posted over 500 comments in one post is now reduced to a weekly recap with 50 commenters."

WTF is she on about? I think by "weekly recaps" she means the weekly Free Discussion threads which have way more than just 50 comments. As far as I know the only 400+ post threads have been when something big has happened in Gosselin Land.

tellitlikeitis said...

Kate Gosselin must not be the 'struggling single mom' she claims to be between the 5 hour spa days, hair extensions, and the designer duds and shoes. Wasn't it not too long ago that Kate made a phone call interview to The View boo hooing because she had a purse (Prada no less) full of bills she could not pay? It's becoming pretty obvious why the Gosselin 8 have been WORKING overtime!

debbiejo said...

I would boycott a store that closed down for that woman.

Most horrific outfit yet ! Looks like an 80's hair metal groupie throw back

Aislinn said...

Wow....I have to admit, when I read the descriptions of Kate's outfits I think to myself, "Oh, they can't be THAT bad!"

I apologize. They are WORSE! It looks like she's hoping to take a Hot Tub Time Machine back to the 80's to hit up some clubs and hook up with a random guy! I'd be mortified if she were my mother.

What does bm stand for? said...

What BM doesn't understand is that fewer posts on this blog are a good thing. It means interest in Katan is waning. The less interest in her, the less we'll see of her on tv, the tabloids, etc. Kate's so desperate for attention that she is now resorting to literally dressing like a hooker, albeit an aging, manly one.

Tizzie said...

So much for "monthly specials" - I just read that Kate Plus 8 will be back to weekly shows as of the end of this month. That's why their whole summer has been wasted on filming.

I don't see how they can go back to weekly shows, when they don't have any new ideas, so they repeat vacations & outings that we've already seen before and don't need (or want) to see again.

1momski said...

These slutty, inappropriate outfits-I believe they are deliberately chosen to stir up controversy which for Kate and TLC equals ratings. As ratings continue to slip, we can look forward to more outrageous appearances from this horrible woman.
What is not exaggerated at all is the sad and defeated look on the faces of these children. Here it is summer, where most kids play and have fun and these kids have been milked for every possible filming minute. These "specials" have had the kids film more than the show. The only way to save them is for the show to be cancelled due to lack of ratings.

One thing for sure, Kate sure is twisted.

Cee said...

I thin Kate's shoes, and to a lesser extent, her outfits, are her new "reverse mullet haircut". When she had that backwards mess that's all anyone talked about. Now her hair is generic so she had to find something else out of the norm to keep her relevant, hence the mommy's a hooker shoes. If this continues, I can hardly wait to see next season's reincarnation.

W&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

Don't know anything first hand about BabyMama nor her blog, because frankly, who cares?

But it is funny to me if this person finds it a sign that things are going well for K8G based on such a huge drop in comments in GWoP.

Memo to BabyMama, whoever you may be: the number of comments continues to drop because people are sick of K8G and just do not care anymore. To assume this is a positive sign that K8G, like the south, 'is going to rise again' is to misread the writing on the wall.

It's all over but the crying for Ms. Gosselin. She is last year's news.

grannyoftwo said...

why is it that the girl's hair looks like it is never combed? Does she not even try to fix her own children's hair? That was one of my precious moments when my daughter was small, brushing her hair and fixing it up all pretty. It was also a time we could spend just talking about things while I did it. And in the process, I was teaching her how to groom herself.

8unhappycampers said...

Kate looks longingly over her shoulder as Jon drives off with the kids? If that isn't proof that TLC or a publicist is submitting photos and copy I don't know what else is. Lord.

maggie said...

JibberJabbers said that Mr. List said on the Nancy Grace show where the $20,000 in child support came from. And that Jon received 30% of the family assets.

JJ, I just re-read the entire NG transcript and Mr. List never said anything about 30% of the family assests going to Jon. And I don't think he said where Jon got the 21,000 per month in support. Mr. List did say that he the monies were in escrow and they would not be lasting long.

My point was TLC was not paying Jon's $21,000 monthly child support. JOn was paying for it. Give Jon credit for it. It was Jon's money. TCL pays Jon $5,000 per month not 25,000 per month

Can't See Sheep said...

@Jane in CA, LMAO! Jon 2.0!!!

Oh come on! In that pic of katie in the shiny shorts it looks like she's turning tricks & approaching a john's vehicle. That outfit was just plain awful in every way, oh no, she's not looking for any attention she can get, no, not at all (rolls eyes). kate's as subtle as a sledgehammer. If my mom had worn anything like this in public when I was a kid I would have begged to stay home.

I seriously hope the girls do not grow up & develope their mother's mockery of fashion & taste. I can hear kate out shopping with them now when they're teens, "Um... Mady, um...how about this micro leather mini with the "road warrior" studs down each side, um...don't you think it'd be too perfectish for your senior prom?

On second thought, maybe it is a good thing kate has no taste, teens love to rebel, so thanks to their mother perhaps they will dress like lovely, tasteful young ladies.

Cathleen Mary said...

This woman never wears the same thing twice! She dresses up and does hair and makeup to go to the end of the driveway. She wants NOTHING more than fame.

I saw the video. That was a look of longing? I don't think so, IMO. That was Kate watching to make sure Jon got in the car, raising her water bottle to him to acknowledge the trade off and heading back up the driveway.

She didn't look sad or wistful or longing to me. Then again she was wearing big heavy sunglasses so seeing her expression wasn't easy, however there was no lip quiver or anything.

Sharla said...

Hippiechick, please email your question to me. That isn't one I will answer on the blog.

Pattupanda said...

Since when do 6 year olds need to be carried into the van? Are they so weak from being starved?

Would you ever visit the shoe store after finding out they closed their door to customers to suite Kate? I wouldn't step foot in that Stride Rite store, and I'd let them know why. I hope Kate spent a lot of money there.

2badsosad said...

I find it absolutely appauling that J & K continue to exploit their children by way of the 'pap' media during the 'custody exchange'. I am MORE THAN CERTAIN, that an alternative 'drop off' location can be secured that is camera/pap free. How about BEHIND the newly landscaped tree line? Seriously, do these two idiots EVER think about what is in the BEST interest of the CHILDREN!

ITA! If I lived in the area, I'd never shop there and I'd let them know why too.

BTW, I think you mean "I hope TLC spent a lot of money there". Kate spending money on her kids, ha! Freebies baby, freebies.

I wonder how long the store was closed for filming. If I had planned on getting shoes for my children on that day, and had driven a distance to get there, I would have been pretty darn upset to find it closed.
I'll never shop at another Stride Rite, and I've been a customer for a very long time. In fact, my mom bought all of my shoes there when I was a kid, and we've carried on the "tradition" with our own children.
After decades and thousands and thousands of dollars...no more. Done.

K8STFU said...

Pattupanda:

Ditto for me.

I am disgusted and TURNED OFF to any company sponsoring these child pimps.

On the flip side, I APPLAUD any company who has said H8LL NO! to TLC's requests.

Proud Grandma. said...

Did you notice there is no video of Jon picking up the kids (commando style handover) at the bottom of the property. I guess the reason is that the only thing the mic would record would be squeals of glee and excitement from the kids at seeing their beloved Daddy.
And it describes the arrival of the kids at Jon's place as being covered in blankets?
Oh and why did K8 have to walk up the driveway instead of having one of her minions drive down and pick her up? Because it was another chance for her to flaunt her hooker outfit. Hey, NOW we know what she does when the kids are away. Maybe she and Purse boy are into studs and leather with whips.

Ladylou said...

If you were still wondering if Kate would again be attending church any time soon.... I don't think so.
Wearing those shiny shorts, top with boobs on display and hooker shoes is certainly nothing any Christian woman would wear! That outfit and the woman in it is so "in this world" it is sickening.
The children will look just like her in a few years....

TLC should be so proud.... by tossing this family some easy $$$ they have surely set the 8 gosselin kids up for failure.

Kate& Jon never had a chance in heck to make something of themselves before the kids & TLC.... now they are dancing with the devil.

It's just sad when I think about the children... they never asked for any of it and now they will be the ones caught up forever in a world of money and greed.
Nothing positive can come out of this way of life.

KATE didnt spend a dime of HER own $$ at Stride Rite. The shoes were either a quid pro quo deal ie; you give ME free shoes and in return (YOU) Stride Rite will be a featured as a product placement during an episode and or TLC wrote the check. Or all the above.

silimom said...

Sorry folks. I'm a bit behind - I didn't realize that there were NEW pics of Jon picking up the kids (glad he's getting to see them more!).

Still, that doesn't look like "longing" on her face, IMO. Again, another case of the celebrity gossip industry making this into more drama than it deserves.

As for the kids being covered with towels: It looks like Jon and the kids are playing a game. True, he could just be making a bad situation fun for his kids, but again I think it wasn't much more than simple goofing around. I've done the same thing with my kids when we've walked from our car to the beach or pool.

If it's not, then all I can do is shake my head and roll my eyes.

Video yes or no? said...

I just rejected a dozen comments for not following the rules in one way or another. I realize that sometimes we may be more lenient than others, but if your comments aren't going through it might be a good idea to check the rules and please don't send a comment through asking about it. If you have a question, please follow our request and email someone. Thanks.

Kia Ora said...

Yes, I believe she is going the "shock jock" route like Howard Stern & others do. She looks ridiculous for a preacher mans daughter. Rebellion at an old age? Jon was crucified, for dressing too young for his age. She has just lately jumped on the band wagon, with regards to dress. The Benz he drives must p her off, that she didn't choose a more desirable vehicle that the younger generation go for, espcially when its usually only her in that gas guzzler she has.

fidosmommy said...

I'm confused.

If Stride Rite was closed for the Gosselin-only shopping spree, who were those other people in the store looking at shoes - including that one girl who looked to be about 9 or 10? They looked like customers to me.

I wonder if what actually happened is that once the Gosselins got there, there would not be enough
room for all of them plus the other customers who might come in afterwards, so to avoid an overload, they asked people to wait outside to avoid getting hit by cameras and the boom mike. In addition, they might not have had the staff on hand to take care of 6Gosselins plus other customers without somebody having to wait in a crowded store.

I would hope that TLC offered them to go to a nearby cafe and get a cool drink or coffee on TLC's bill.
That would be the polite thing to do.

Just a thought.

Paige (Final Clothes-Out) said...

I haven't commented on this blog for a while, but I just have to say something about these ridiculous shopping pictures.

http://www.gossipcenter.com/kate-gosselin/photo/kate-gosselin-1235

I'm 24 and I have NEVER worn an outfit like that. Ever. And Kate is in her mid-30s, dressing like she's headed to Da Club.

Seriously. This is so bad.

Proud Grandma said...

I posted a comment a few hours ago based on a few photos I saw on Radaronline where K8 had driven the van to the bottom of the driveway then left to walk home as Jon got out of his car to drive the van with the kids in it. K8 was wearing the black hooker outfit, silk black shorts with belt, hooker heels and black and white top. She was carrying a bottle os water and a can of something.
The photo was not the same as the video mentioned. In the video, kate is wearing a strapless green(I think) dress. It must have been another time. Any thoughts anyone? The photo of her in the black outfit was taken 21st aug.

Me said...

I'm torn between being disappointed that there aren't more people posting here, and very happy to see the interest in Kate fading away.

If you look closely to the pictures when she is holding hands with Collin and Hannah, Kate is not even really holding their hands. Collin is holding her hand. Holding someone's hand involves the fingers to bend and embrace the other hand. Kate fingers are straight out only to allow Collin to hold her fingers. Even the hand holding show no emotional or love.
I think I maybe joining the others who have left this site. It has all been said here, over and over and over and personally I am sick of Kate, the things she pulls, the way she speak, the way she dresses, the way other people (not the people here)think she is so special and most importantly the way we are viewing how she treats her kids. I am so done with it all. I applaud all of you that will continue to blog and maybe will make a difference.

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

In the pictures of Kate and the kids going to the van from the shoe store, Kate is carrying one of the boys. I didn't notice it before, but that pink top that she has on, the way it looked in the front was bad enough, but look closely at the back: it is semi-backless!
the back shoulders are covered, but a big space is open on the back, and it is unreal for a mother of 8 kids to wear that type of clothing to do clothes and shoe and school shopping out in public!
Since alot of people know that there is drama at the drop offs and pickups at the McMansion gate, wouldn't you think that normal regular paps would be there to get it documented.

Also, Kate walking down the driveway to the house, she looked like a worn out 42 year old.

@Jane in CA I love you calling Steve, Jon 2.0 funny funny funny!

Trying to Understand I posted on the ROL comment section yesterday for the first time and asked the question simply What is it about Kate that makes her such a good mother? Of course no one answered it directly. I was called ugly,fat,old,jealous and a stalker to name a few. There are 2 rabid fans that post over and over always trashing Jon and Ellen(who seems like a descent person). I can't imagine by the things that they say that they are much older than 12 and if they are adults or parents, God help their kids. Well the nannies and chef are off tonight so I have to go make 1\2 a sandwich and a box of Juicey Juice each for my 4, yes 4 kids.

Poor Kate. All dressed up and nowhere to go. All those shoes, bags (purses lol), and clothes and she only has a small town to bop around in. She believes she belongs in N.Y. city or L.A. with all the other celebrities but she's being held back by her family.

She must be comped these clothes and shoes by companies who hope for exposure for their product. Thus her desperate attempts to put all on display.

It must be terribly frustrating to her to have no real celebrity surroundings. Just rural P.A.

Poor Katie. Let's see more of those horrendous clothes and shoes which are totally inappropriate for a mom of 8 running errands.

She hasn't got a clue.

Kia Ora said...

Fidosmummy, good point. Going by the Stride Rite shop in Freehold NJ it is a relatively small store, and Freehold NJ is a very busy area. Going by memory I think they said Quaker something. I don't think it said Quakerbridge Mall. There would be a difference. Mainly a smaller store.

Regarding what Me said, I read here a lot but do not post as much as I used to. The past few days I think I have posted 3 times, but that is mainly because Hate deserves to be mocked.

I am basically watching and waiting for those children to finally get a break and for the show to be canceled. Until then, not much for me to add other than a "hit" for K8 if I do post and I don't want to give that to her.

Minka's Tail said...

BM isn't doing her research. There are only 50 or so posters at this time because it changes every week.

According to the home page, there have been between 146 and 450 posts per week in July and August for free discussion, plus some in the other categories. That's an average of 312/wk. Much less than the height of the divorce--but 6X more than BM is claiming.

If the posts are going down, it's because she does the same thing week after week.

In fact, it's like MAD LIBS. Fill in the blanks.

1. Kate went to the (store) wearing (type of sexy blouse) and (#) inch-heeled shoes.

2. Kate bent over exposing her (private part of female.)

3. Kate's (general body part) looked to be more (adjective). She obviously had work done on it/them.

4. The next day, they left for a trip for (place). The boys were not wearing (clothing) and the girls' (general body part) didn't look well-groomed. Cara and Mady both had (adjective) looks on their faces.

5. Steve was touching Kate's (body part) and carrying her (accessory). There were (#) nannies with them.

Someone should write it on a dry-erase board. Every week, just change the descriptors.

Kate Lies said...

There is NO good reason for Kate to put the children through this absurd charade of not allowing Jon to pick up the kids at the house. Who KNOWS what she's telling them as to why their dad is not allowed on the property.

Besides, the house is supposed to belong to the kids, just like everything else.

Kate's lies keep getting worse and worse.

Aislinn said...

After that hooker-ific outfit, how much more tasteless can Kate get? I predict next time Kate will do the driveway hand off show in just a bikini and heels with full make-up and hair as if she "just happened" to have been in the pool. The woman will do anything for attention.

Queen of the Bar Flies said...

http://www.dlisted.com/node/38526

You have to read this article. The author doesn't pull any punches and describes Kate's raunchy outfit to a T. The adjective "skanky" was used. Love it.

How can she even drive in those heels? Total safety hazard if you ask me.

Honestly, in college, my boyfriend was in a band and played in a few dirt-floor bars in rural PA. Kate would fit right in as "Queen of the Bar Flies" in that outfit. Guess Billy Joel's lyrics fit her "You can't dress trashy till you spend alot of money."

Miranda said...

I don't get it -- with all that money (that she got for selling her kids' souls) she could afford age-appropriately youthful, sophisticated, flattering outfits that would give the impression that she had some sense & taste. But nooooooo...

I'm reminded of two quotes:

"Money can't buy class" and,

"You can lead a horticulture but you can't make her think."

yeaisaidthat said...

Kate is ALL about fueling her 'love me or hate me' persona. From last year's 'revenge bikini' body reveal to her present day sporting of 'KateDashian' attire. I wouldnt be surprised if Kate's next 'reality' shock schtick is prancing through the parking lots dressed like her 'idol' Lady Ga Ga.

fidosmommy said...

Somewhere - can't remember where, and it was only minutes ago - a poster mentioned the Quakertown
(called it Quakerbridge) Plaza in Quakertown. I looked it up on a map. It's MILES from Wernersville.
Seems like a long way to go to get
shoes for kids, when there are probably stores in Reading that have perfectly fine shoes for kids.

I don't get it. I can only hope local stores refused to be dragged into the Gosselin mess because they are onto the problems with the kids being used.

emschick1128 said...

Please don't starve your kids like Kate, don't forget the 6 grapes each. LOL

I wonder how much will it cost the kids to send their mother to the Emmys? Hair, makeup, new dress, more hooker heals. Extra nights away so she can be with her Stevie, one hotel room, car, etc. She'll be trolling the gift tables for all the freebes she can get. Don't forget Kate that it's all taxable. I'm sure she'll need another racking out of the extensions in NY before too. That's why she's in such a hurry this past week to get all their shopping done. Didn't she once say she did a lot of shopping online - or it that just the free juice she picks up at UPS?

Amy2 said...

Each picture of Kate IMO is racier than the last. The heels are higher to go along with the higher hemline and the top is lower to expose her manmade breasts. She is determined to stay in the spot light whatever it takes. What she has working against her is time. Look at Pamela Anderson now in her forties and dressing like a 20 year old. Pamela has talent but IMO no credibility and as I have read elsewhere having financial whoes. Kate has set her own path. She will continue to do more plastic surgery to fight aging clock.

Not only is she up against physical aging she's up against the children aging. In five years she'll be 40 and Cara/Mady will be 15. They will become young ladies with puberty hitting them and the confusing time of understanding relationships. The public will become interested in the young adults (drugs, alcohol, or doing okay) rather than a 40 year old mother. Continuing to wear her current wardrobe will further emphasize her desperation but this time competing with her own children. And oddly enough Cara/Mady not interested in being the spot light at all. I truly hope that the twins get out of the spot light as they get older.

Kia Ora said...

Queen of Bars - Thats probably why Steveo was driving the big van. Do you think she will belittle heself that much? "Not even for the kids" Don't think so.

fidosmommy said...

OK, I had nothing else to do so I tracked down the Stride Rite store.
It is in the Promenade Shops of Saucon Valley in Center Valley PA. According to the store locator map of the plaza, it is quite a small Stride Rite store.

Not that it matters, I was just interested how far they drove for shoes.

About an hour. There are many shoe stores near to their home, some great sneaker stores only 10 minutes away. Reading is on overload with shoe outlets; of course, none of those would have been shut down just for them. They had to drag those kids on a two-hour round trip.

When they went shoe shopping they went to Stride Rite in the Promenade Shops (Saucon Valley) located in Center Valley, PA, about ten minutes from Quakertown, PA., which is an hour from their house. In the other photo, they were shopping at Boscovs at the Berkshire Mall in Wyomissing (Reading) which is about 10 minutes from their house.

Stride Rite may have been one of the company's that gave them shoes for umpteenmillion years - like Musselman/Juicey Juice.

gherkin said...

I just wonder what will happen when the twins are a little older and want to start dressing like their mother--boobs exposed, stripper shoes, micro-skirts/shorts. Will Kate endorse this idea? Or, will she say "you have to be 35 and a mommy before you can dress like this".

And does Steve EVER go home to his wife and family?
He is Kate's paid escort. She is so needy and wants someone at her beck and call and TLC is paying him to play this roll. I would LOVE to see what happened if Steve wasn't on the payroll anymore. What then?

Anonymous said...

Steve jumped the shark a long time ago and ruined any crediblity he had as a bodyguard. He's shown himself to be as big a famewhore as Kate, and who would hire him now? (except another famewhore, I guess) Bodyguards are supposed to be nameless and faceless. What a complete a$$. He's not going back to his 2,000 sq ft home in MD after tasting the good life with TLC's money. He's going to go down with the battleaxe, I mean ship. Bye, Stevie.

Cris said...

Is it just me or do some of the kids look scary thin? I think Kate's body issues might be rubbing off. I have never seen children look more miserable in my entire life than the G kids do in the pics of back-to-school shopping. Poor babies.

Sidney said...

What a sad bunch of back-to-school shoppers. I feel so bad for those poor little kids.

Once I brought a friend home with me after school, and I was absolutely mortified because my dear mother had on Levis, a flannel shirt and was bare footed. Of course, in retrospect, there was nothing wrong with her appearance. But I was embarrassed.

Kids deserve to have their mother look like a mother.

Which of these Gosselins enjoyed their mom looking like a $10.00 hooker?

So strange. The harder she tries, the older she looks. Really old. Pathetic.

ihatefrogs said...

How refreshing to see photos of the NATURALLY beautiful, 'SINGLE' mom, Sandra Bullock running errands in a simply pulled back pony tail, casual long dress and flats. Unlike Kate Gosselin, a mother of EIGHT, who has the time to spend hours of her time with a staff of service people who prep her hair, makeup, and advise her on what to wear before leaving to 'run errands' at the local tanning salon and Target store.

Jane in California said...

One thing that has been reinforced to me through all this J&K+8 (and now K+8) saga, is that many entities slap the label "Christian" on their product just because it helps for sales. Yes, Zondervan I'm looking at you.

TLC loves to do this as well, and J&K went along with the concept, putting up sticky notes with Bible scriptures, wearing t-shirts that had Bible scriptures on them, even attending some anonymous church for an episode once.

It's sad to me that many people will accept that something is "Christian" simply on hearing the label applied, and do not look deeper and question whether there is any substance to the claim. However, I think that more and more people are realizing that whatever Kate is, she does not represent their own belief system. I guess even TLC couldn't carry on with that nonsense as far as Kate is concerned.

Captain of the Titanic said...

INFDaily has a video showing Kate getting the kids into the van at some parking lot. What I find interesting and sort of disturbing is that she puts them into a closed van...no windows are open and the van isn't running (which you can tell because when she does eventually get in, she starts the engine). Anyway, after they are all loaded in, she stands in front of the van talking with one of the production crew with no sense of urgency to get either the windows open, or get the A/C running. A hot van with no ventilation and fully loaded with kids? That couldn't have been very comfortable.

She's Such a Phoney! said...

Does anyone remember the first grade reader involving Dick and Jane? "See Dick run, see Jane run, see Spot run" and on and on. Now its see Khate shop, see Khate pump gas, see Khate in her hooker outfits, and on and on. This is what Khate and her eight remind me of - a first grade reader and the show runs in the same singsong way. See the Tups get school shoes, see the Tups eat crackers and on and on. As for Baby Mama - how interesting it is to see that you can count - now count down to zero because it won't be long before you won't have Khate + 8 to watch - No one with even a quarter of a brain is interested in this drivel! See Khate go away!

Patty said...

Anybody who really knows what Steve and Kate's relationship is off-camera, isn't talking. All there is is conjecturing, so I'll conjecture too: I think Steve is nothing more than Kate's handler, paid by TLC to look after their cash cow without her realizing it...not hard with someone like her who has a massive ego and isn't very clever. I believe the affair rumors are being fostered by TLC to keep the gossip buzzing and Kate's name and face in the public eye. It's clear to me the huge, muscle-bound African-American guy with the shaved head is the real bodyguard.

OH! Those vile so & so's!!! Why do they keep wasting trees on this shrew's drivel! I'm hoping the power goes out this winter & everyone uses her stupid books in their wood-stoves to keep warm, my bet is they'll be cheaper than buying wood.

MickeyMcKean said...

I read Al Walentis' book and if I read it correctly there is something that might be another perk from TLC that Al and the bloggers have missed: the white fence that appears to be in front and on the sides of the entire Gosselin property.

Werny Gal has confirmed on her blog that the fence appeared after the Gosselins bought the property.

I know for a fact that this fence is NOT cheap even though it is plastic. I checked online - 4 rail fencing delivered is $4-6 per FOOT but then you have to pay someone to install it (each post is set in cement) so it is more like $9-10 per FOOT.

I bet it is 6' between each post so in guesstimating figure $100 between posts. Without looking at a photo and counting posts I am willing to bet there is a minimum of $40,000 just in fencing costs. You also have to take the rock entrance with wrought iron fencing into account ... we are talking a lot of money.

I wonder if TLC paid for it or if Jon and Kate paid for it out of their pocket? Not that we will ever know for sure, but I'm sure we will all agree that it was a necessity for the children's safety since Jon did point out that they know they have exposed their children to every pedophile out there.

Course who would have thought that one day Kate would have used this fencing to keep the father of her children OUT ...

Anyway ... FYI this fence is very impressive looking, and a lot of people like it because you never have to paint it or rehang loose boards. It is fully functional for livestock but it *melts* in a grass fire. Perhaps there are not many fires in PA due to the year round rain and green grass but out here in CA when this fence burns it becomes a twisted expensive mess and if it was being used as livestock fencing, you now have missing livestock because when it melts it is all now 1' high from the ground.

JMO.

I apologized earlier because when I first commented I was thinking everyone was still talking about the drop off that happened a week (?) ago. There was video of that. There was no video for this last kid exchange.

I apologize for the confusion.

silimom said...

Jane in California -

Actually, at the time, Kate and Jon did attend church fairly regularly, from my understanding. They bought strongly into what is called "The Prosperity Gospel" (which, as a Christian, I disagree with for a lot of reasons) which is a common movement in a lot of fundamentalist/pentecostal/evangelical churches.

That one church they were filmed at which you referenced was their regular church at the time.

To the best of my knowledge, neither attends religious services anymore.

Yolanda said...

Speaking of Kate wearing different outfits on the same day, this is one of the tricks celebrities use to ensure maximum exposure to the press. The paps like when celebs wear more than one outfit per day, they can imply their pictures were taken over the course of a few days, instead of all taken on the same day.

Kate's problem is she forgets about the kids - if she wants to change her outfit three times a day, she has to remember to change her kids' outfits too.

That woman really is just so stupid. And if you think about it, that's the worst insult you can give someone.

Kate is stupid.

bonehead said...

Ok, I just saw pics of Kate & Steve in NYC. No kids with, just the 2 of them. Dated today Aug 23. No explaination was given, but they are staying at the Essex Hotel. She of course is dressed trashy. So, who is with the kids? Jon or the Nannies? And why is she there? Are not the Emmys shot in LA? If they are done in NYC she is too early. Is this her vacation from the kids? Poor Kate the stress of the kids going back to school vacation? or is this the Steve & Kate vacation. Gee, she is slipping. I think she is having an affair with Steve.

I really can't hear what the kids are saying...are they screaming "It's hot?"

She should have left the door open until she got in, but it was such a short period of time, and the weather here has not been brutal -- yes, it's warm, but not like the record-breaking heat wave we had in July. The kids would not have been close to heat strokes by any means. I had an SUV in a parking lot for six hours on the same day this was filmed, and it was not unbearably hot when I returned to the car.

Would I have done this? Nope. But this is Kate we're talking about.

Hey, Kate, how about this: instead of PRETENDING to be a parent through a show and a blog and worrying about damage control because people think you're a pig of a mother, how about you actually just love the kids and spend time with them? How about you just do nice things with them and enjoy them and the only validation you seek is that they will think you are the sun and the moon? Just worry about your family and not clarifying things on the Today show or a blog that an intern writes. How about just that, you clueless, silly twit?

I hate self centered parents like this and I have seen it before. I was running into a convenience store and it was a hot day. Next to me a woman parked and got out. There were 3 small kids in the car. First of all, you should not leave kids in the car like that, but all she did was crack a window. She started chatting with some guy on the sidewalk for an extended period. They were still going on and on when I came out. Then the mom finally went into the store and I heard the guy say into the cracked windows, "Sorry for keeping your mom, kids". Ugh. Those poor kids! I have also seen moms at playgrounds who NEVER once got off their cell phones, others who are constantly texting and those in stores who push the cart around with the phone stuck under their ear ignoring their kid the whole time. I hate that stuff! When is she NOT with a cell phone or when is she ever paying attention to them at all when she is with them?

waaah! I can't pay my bills! said...

Let's see if this one goes thru on the aptly named Kate's Take blog:

"The kids should sing Hi HO Hi HO to you whenever you dress like a ho"

@Tami...

It was not hot and she was right there. I posted upthread about this. I'm not in the habit of defending her, but in this case, this was not child endangerment by any means. Kate's done so many things that a parent should never do, but I'm giving her a pass on this one because I know what the weather conditions were that day.

What she did to them in NYC, dragging them all over in 103 degree heat, though, was child abuse.

bonehead said...

Does it not strike anyone funny, that Kate boohooed about her kids going back to school, made a small thing about it. Then here she is off to NYC, of which she was just there for her hair, what a week ago. Not spending the remainer of the kids vacation with them. I have noticed that all the pics of her and the kids that were taken over the summer, Kate look, was one of I hate being with them. Do you guys know what I mean?

Cry Me a RIver said...

I read the blog too. The kids broke into song and dance at 10:30 at night in the forum upon arriving home after working their butts off clear across the country. The dummy thought they were trying to entertain her, despite how tired they were. Here's a thought - maybe just maybe they were happy to be home.

And what does coming home from their dad's have to do with putting on a show. She would intimate that is because they haven't seen her. The only time they see is when they are filming. They are used to her being absent and the one time they filmed her leaving, they barely looked up, and didn't she state that when she called home they didn't have time to talk because they were playing a video game.

Yep, full damage control mode. It's an old song and dance and nobody's buying it.

Captain of the Titanic said...

Take comfort in the notion that every time Kate goes to NYC, her risk of bringing home bedbugs goes up.

Of course, she'd probably vacate her house and leave the kids and nannies behind to deal with them, but at least there's be a satisfying moment or two when she would totally freak out.

Hippie Chick said...

Kate's new nickname from me is "skankerella". That's how she is trying to stay relevant.

Vanessa said...

@texasmom, bahaha!
You're right, Steve might be into "feet", lots of weirdos like that! She probably likes it, if he's servicing her feet, her hair and makeup don't get ruined.

Cris said...
Is it just me or do some of the kids look scary thin? I think Kate's body issues might be rubbing off. I have never seen children look more miserable in my entire life than the G kids do in the pics of back-to-school shopping. Poor babies.

8/23/2010 8:42 AM

_________________________________

I agree with you, those kids look very thin to me. I took a look at all those pics of Kate on the one site where they were shopping and she was in various getups, and those kids look worn out, used up, and totally miserable. I especially worry about Cara. She just always looks done in.

And as for Kate herself, she looks just ugly. That is not an attractive woman. Her facial expressions may vary a bit but never a smile to be seen when she is out and about with those kids. She looks mean and miserable. Horrible woman. I absolutely detest her. Anybody who could make those kids look that miserable, and I do feel she has alot to do with it, is just sorry.

How can anybody, even "fans", want to watch the show when those kids look so down and so tired out? It's just pathetic at this point.

Pattypanda said...

Kate's outfit for the drive to NYC yesterday looks more like going to the beach than the city, except maybe the shoes. She's dressed like a teenager, ready for easy access in the back of a car. Her and Steve has more than a business relationship.

Anne said...

Patty said...
Anybody who really knows what Steve and Kate's relationship is off-camera, isn't talking. All there is is conjecturing, so I'll conjecture too: I think Steve is nothing more than Kate's handler, paid by TLC to look after their cash cow without her realizing it...not hard with someone like her who has a massive ego and isn't very clever. I believe the affair rumors are being fostered by TLC to keep the gossip buzzing and Kate's name and face in the public eye.
=======================
ITA! Steve is paid big bucks to try to make Kate somewhat civil in public. Such as The Huffington Post writer having her photo taken with Kate on the beach. Would that have happened in a million years without Steve? Kate would have bared her fangs had anyone dared approach her beach chair for a photo.

Also, if Steve is telling her how "fantastic" she looks in these costumes she keeps shopping in (also per the Katy Hall article), I read that as someone who doesn't like this woman and is just milking the big TLC cash as long as it's possible.

I have visions of Steve going home and laughing his ass off with his wife at Kate's latest outfit and behavior.

All the while, Kate thinks she's closer and closer to luring him away from his wife. Keep dreaming, Kate.

sunny said...

YOLANDA said 'Kate is stupid.'

You hit the nail on the head. That woman really is stupid. That is one of the things that bug me so badly about her. She's just plain stupid.

I Knew It!!!! said...

I KNEW IT!!!

As soon as that video came out with the kids screaming in fear about being returned to Kate, I posted here that Kate will probably do a new blog post for damage control.

And damned if that's not what she did.

We all know those kids come back to her unwillingly, yet she will have you believe they come home and welcome HER home and sing and dance around her. If they do, it's out of pure fear of her and they are trying desperately to make mommy happy and feed her enormous ego and to keep her from yelling.

This woman is sooooooooo freakin' delusional and such a complulsive liar.

And why does she always have to refer to Jon's place as "Their dad's apartment"...???? To me, she does that underhandedly as an insult to Jon that he isn't as afluent as she is, and her mansion is a better place for the kids.

I also snickered at how she thinks she will embarrass the kids when they are teenagers with their song and dance routines.

Don't worry Kate, all you have to do is pull out the J&K+8 DVD's and that will be enough to mortify them in front of their girlfriends/boyfriends.

Sillimom said:
Actually, at the time, Kate and Jon did attend church fairly regularly, from my understanding. They bought strongly into what is called "The Prosperity Gospel" (which, as a Christian, I disagree with for a lot of reasons) which is a common movement in a lot of fundamentalist/pentecostal/evangelical churches.
-----------------------------

thank you for clarifying that issue Sillimom :) Of course, even when they were regular church goers, it was because they believed they would reap material (monetary) gain rather than spiritual gain *eye roll* Why am I not surprised?

I'm thinking the "ice Queen" has that pissy look ALL THE TIME because steve -the handler- isn't putting out!!! If she would buy a coffee pot for the orphanage she wouldn't have to get out of the limo in the rain-of course that would mean no photo-op..BOO HOO.

Payson48 said...

Do you think there is a chance she 's in NY to buy a dress for the Emmys and NOT tape a show??
So tired of her on The View,Today...ect. ALL the other reality shows and who do we see? Yup, the LOT LIZARD. AGAIN.

SafetyTrain said...

The downfall of Kate (besides DWTS) has really been her wardrobe. If she presented herself in a respectable way I think she'd still have a following, but no one can really take seriously someone who dresses like this. She wants us to see a together and classy "mom" but I'm sorry the only word that pops into my mind is "skank". I don't look at her and see a responsible human being, I look at her and wonder if she got an STD after her night out at the bar, or if she got around to texting Snooki back. Kate seems to think that the only way to be "attractive" is to dress like this but she's way way off. There are an infinite amount of style options between sweatpants and streetwalker attire that Kate has completely skipped over. She needs an adult to seriously step in and help her. I can't for the life of me figure out how TLC has allowed this. Makes me think they aren't behind this mom of the year anymore and are instead pulling for that train wreck to come.

silimom said...

Jane in CA -

Your welcome. I do want to add that buying into the Prosperity Gospel is my own opinion based on a lot of buzz words they used when discussing their faith. They never came out and said they believed in that movement themselves.

Just speculating said...

Whether or not Steve and Kate have something going on, Steve is still a VERY active and WILLING participant in the exploitation of the Gosselin children, as is his wife.

The only scenario where I feel I could be wrong is if he is actually there to protect the children from Kate's wrath. Since he was around before Jon left, I don't feel this is likely, although I guess he could have started off as her "handler" and then had to step into the role of protecting the children from her once Jon was gone.

Sidney said...

Kate has proven what we all suspected.

She is nothing more than a hayseed. People who dress like that, and don't know how trashy they look, are hayseeds.

I work at an employment agency and I can't believe some of the costumes that come in looking for a job.

Women thinking they can work behind a desk, address the public,etc., know NOT to come in with spaghetti straps and sandals, disgustingly over-done faces, hair, and nails, and ear-rings that dangle down to their shoulders.

If you want to be taken seriously, you learn how to dress for it.

Kate, you ain't cutting it, kid. Now go home and put some decent, grown-up clothes on.

Just saw a picture of Kate and Steve. It looks as if he isn't wearing his wedding band.

Somewhereinoh said...

IMO, the reason Ms. Kate flees to NYC the second filming stops or on her 'off' custody days is because she wants to be seen ie, NY big wigs, paparrazi (TMZ) etc... Now that Kate has emptied the pocket books of the church congregation and local community and begged her way to 'reality' stardom, she has nothing to offer and nothing in common with the 'people' of home town PA.

bonehead said...

Hey, wanted to share this with you guys: reading one of the latest articles, someone said they should not call Steve Kate's bodyguard but her boobieguard LOLOLOL Also, they are saying that she is dressing like a 12 year old. And I too was gonna mention that one of the twins looks too thin, then I saw the others and they too look a little too thin. Gee, I wonder what kate is feed them or not feeding them, a proper diet.?

Barb In Nebraska said...

I knew it! The TLC blog hasn't posted my negative comment about her latest post.

Aunt Chris said...

I notice in these latest photos that Steve is looking a bit on the orange side. Side-by-side tanning? And Kate's neck is gettng wrinkled. How on earth is she going to fix that? Not by wearing turtlenecks, that's for sure!

Proud PA. Grandma said...

I just spoke to a friend in AZ whose 10 year old daughter did a 2 minute weather report for a local TV station over the summer. She did a pretty good job considering she is shy and had to deal with the blue screen. It was the high point of her summer and she was very proud of herself. Well now that school has started she is constantly being teased and bullied by her classmates and "friends". She now sits alone at lunch and on the bus. She has even started finding reasons to go to the nurses room during recess. If this is what happens from a 2 minute broadcast on a local station what are the Gosselin kids facing when their entire life has been nationally seen. The only bright spot for them is that they have each other to sit with. I hope that with time my little friends problems will blow away. But unfortunately. Can we say the same about the Gosselins? I don't think so...mom keeps giving the bullies ammunition.

Hippie Chick said...

@PattyPanda, please forgive me if I'm wrong, but are you from Sage's website? If you are, welcome! It is nice to see people coming over from the dark side!! Again, if I'm wrong, ignore me, slap me, & call me crazy. :)

Kate's relevance is totally going downhill. I buy the "rags" for my mom every week, & only Star had an article last week about Kate & her interview about how she wants to find a "strong, in-control man". It also stated that she "doesn't want to be in charge anymore". (uh, you aren't, the nannies are) Just like we read last week. Same old, same old. So, yes, boring stuff. Nothing new or exciting to report in the magazines. That must be eating her up that she's not front page anymore. How ever will she stay popular? Dress the part of course! But IMO, she does NOT look 'Hollywood' at all. She looks desperate, cheap & homely.

I find it funny that K8 was once so popular in the rag-mags. Every week, either front page, or huge articles, now there's nothing, or just one little tiny blurb on page 57 in one magazine. Notice how she's never in a reputable magazine either. I'm thinking it's over. No Twist of Kate, switching the night of K+8, all bad omens. I'm doing a happy dance, which I do all the time, but this time it's for the kids!! :)

If you refer back and find 'where's waldo' aka Steve in the J & K + 8 episodes and compare to his 'appearance' present day, you can see that like Kate, Steve has gone thru a physical transformation. Steve appears much OLDER, conservative, and rather unkempt in the J & K + 8 episodes. I guess when Steve's role changed from riding in the shadows of the back of the plane to front and center 'purse carrier' he became entitled to share Kate's personal stylist. As part of Kate's daily routine, she probably lays out FOUR matchy matchy boy outfits; one for each of the boy tups and one for big boy Steve.

"Just saw a picture of Kate and Steve. It looks as if he isn't wearing his wedding band."

$$$$$$$$$$$$

Bloggers have pulled up old photos going back two years, and he isn't wearing a wedding ring. There are some great close-up shots of his hands during last year's trip to NC...no ring then.

Boobie-Trapped said...

"Of course, even when they were regular church goers, it was because they believed they would reap material (monetary) gain rather than spiritual gain *eye roll* Why am I not surprised?"

+++++++++

Remember the pastor from the Roswell church who wrote snippy replies to some bloggers after they expressed their feelings about having her speak at his church? He defended her to the nth degree. I wonder if his congregation would welcome her back now, after all that has gone down since then, particularly after seeing her flagrantly displaying her boobies for all the world to see!

Most churches, especially those fundamental in their beliefs, don't really care to see that kind of exhibitionism!

Great post! It had me laughing! I noticed that as well how Kate seemed to go from 0 to 60 with her style of dress. How do you go from bare feet and sweatpants to bondage heels and miniskirts? Really, who does that?

Gimme Gimme said...

Can anyone find a picture where he ever wore his wedding ring? I don't remember if he every did or not but seems like he did early on.

If he is still married when does he ever go home?

bonehead said...

You know all of us might not be too far off the beaten path of TLC, ready to dump her. They did try, with the Hayes, now it's the Jones. I would not be surprised if there will be another multi family in the works, besides the 2 above mentioned. Or yet another freak show reality show. Cause you know these reality shows are starting to look like freak shows. They are getting to be boring. JMO

K8TERH8TER said...

I was at Boscov's this evening and asked about Kate and the kids' recent school shopping trip. Apparently her "handlers" called and requested a time for her and the kids to shop when the store would be closed to the public. Kate didn't want to be pestered by "fans". The store reluctantly agreed and told them she and the kids could come to the store at 8 am prior to opening. She never showed up until close to 10:30 am!!! (just in time for the public to see her) The employees had a good laugh at her attempting to walk in her high heels. They said she walked with her butt sticking out in what looked like an attempt to keep her balance. They also said she has definitely had some type of boob job....either implants or a very taught lift. Her boobs were hanging right out there, yet they were as stiff as could be. She basically looked like she was trying too hard to work the street corner. They said her body is pretty fit, but her thighs, calves, and ankles are a bit on the heavy side...a bit too heavy for the shorty shorts and mini skirts she wears. The kids were well behaved, yet they seemed just "there". Kate was definitely well aware of the people around her...although I was told most people just ignored her and tried to keep their distance. I do know she is not liked in this area...everyone is sooo over this family. There was no doubt in anyone's mind that Kate planned on showing up when she did and definitely loves the spotlight...even when she is very well aware that everyone in this town thinks she is nothing but a big joke. She doesn't care what anyone thinks of her. She is too money hungry and doesn't seem to care what she has to do to keep the $$$ coming in. It's such a sad and pathetic life if you ask me.

fidosmommy said...

K8TERH8TER, thank you so much for sharing the story about Boscov's.
Even though I was not there to witness it myself, I believe every single word of it. I'm pretty sure other shoppers in other stores
could tell matching stories. It's just heartwrenching for these children that their mother is so despised by the public yet she continues to do her own thing in spite of the obvious inappropriateness of it.


A healthy mother would ask herself
"how does this affect my children?"
and make changes to improve their
situation. Since she does not notice other people, she hasn't a clue that her children are walking around looking like they care about nothing in their own lives.
Thank goodness for their school environment and I'm even thankful Kate probably doesn't stick her face into anything they do there.
It must be a wonderful break for them to interact with other adults who come across as adults and who show concern and compassion for 8 kids.

fidosmommy said...

Oh, I forgot to mention...

From the Boscov's account above, does anybody else have images of "Mrs. Awiggins, Mrs. Awiggins"
flashing in their minds?
(Carol Burnett and Tim Conway skit
on Carol's show for those of you too young to remember). The stilted bottom-centric walk in too tight clothes and high heels just brought this to mind for me.

StoryLady said...

"...The employees had a good laugh at her attempting to walk in her high heels. They said she walked with her butt sticking out in what looked like an attempt to keep her balance . . ."
Remember some time back when someone posted and said that Kate's new persona reminded them of Carol Burnett's character, Mrs. Wiggins?
That's all I could picture when I read this description from the Boscov's employees about Kate's walking abilities. :-D

Tami said...

@Tami...

It was not hot and she was right there. I posted upthread about this. I'm not in the habit of defending her, but in this case, this was not child endangerment by any means. Kate's done so many things that a parent should never do, but I'm giving her a pass on this one because I know what the weather conditions were that day.

What she did to them in NYC, dragging them all over in 103 degree heat, though, was child abuse.

**********
I mentioned it was hot when the mom I saw at the store left her kids, but don't really know how hot it was for Kate's. I was just mentioning how I hate selfish parents who only think about their needs. Maybe the kids I saw didn't want to sit in the car all day while their mom chatted. The Gosselins have to deal with that all the time. She acts as if there is something so important on the other end of that phone of hers. There isn't! The kid are important but she just does not see anyone but herself as being relevant.

Tami said...

Tomorrow night I'm going to a concert with my 19 year old daughter. I don't make it a habit of going out to concerts these days so I was teasing her and telling her I'm going to get all slutted up like Kate and wear a miniskirt, halter top, high heels, etc. She said no way would she let me go out looking like a whore and it might be ok to wear one thing out of what I mentioned like heels with pants or a tank top but not with a mini skirt, but that she would never let her best friend go out with all those things all at once and she defintely would not let me. It was funny the way she went on and on about how humiliating it would be for someone to wear an entire trampy outfit from top to bottom. You just know that one day soon the Gosselin kids are going to be aware of their mother's style and embarrassed by it.

Miranda said...

... how Kate's fans constantly drag Ellen, Jodie and Kevin through the mud on a daily basis? They really hate it when people tell the truth about their idol.

They've even tried to make up gossip to spread their hatred. They are all good people who have do nothing but care about the kids. In the land of Kate's fans, apparently that's a crime.

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

i remember watching Carol Burnett and Tim Conway's office skit. Carol did a great jon as Ms. Wiggings. if Carol had a reverse mullet on like kate, she would be kate made over.

can you imagine kate in the skit, Went with the Wind and kate coming down the stairs in the green drapery dress with the curtain rod on her shoulders? hahaha


i am hoping that if the kids are not getting enough to eat at home that they would tell a trusted adult at their school and then they would have to report it to the proper authorities. you know they eat when Jon and Ellen has them!

poor babies.

readerlady said...

Just some random comments here. I was browsing on Ebay yesterday looking for knitting patterns and stumbled on a listing of J&K clippings and news stories. The item had been listed for a week, the starting bid was $.01 and THERE WASN'T A SINGLE BID!! LOL!

Re Steve and his (lack of) a wedding ring. Steve was a cop. Many cops don't wear wedding rings because there are too many ways that they can get caught on things and present a hazard. Maybe he never got into the habit of wearing one after he retired (or quit). Or maybe he still considers himself a cop.

I agree that many of the kids, esp. the girls - are too thin. Of course we know that Khate doesn't feed them properly. It's well documented on the show. They don't even have the "luxury" of getting a balanced meal for lunch in the school cafeteria. Their lunches are sent with them and even if Khate doesn't make them with her own lily-white hands, you know she dictates what goes in those lunch sacks, down to the last carrot stick and cracker crumb. I wonder what kind of a freak-out she'll have if one of the girls goes through the pre-puberty chubbies, as many girls do. Will she enroll them in "fat" camp? Or just label them as fatty losers and ignore them even more?

Yeah, I really didn't expect them to print it!
Also, to fidosmommy & Storylady - LOL!!!!!!!!! She is SO Mrs. Ah Wiggins!!

mama san said...

I wonder what Steve's teenage sons think of his job? They probably have accessed the photos. Imagine how their buddies must tease them about Kate and their father. Now that is a story that I would read.

bonehead said...

I feel sorry, for those employee at Boscov, cause they had to come in early for that cow, then Kate had the gall not to show up at that time. Then I'm sure her excuses were I could not get the kids ready. And I'm sure she was PO at the store for letting the peasants in to shop at regular time, cause the Queen did not show at 8 am. And KUDOS to those people in that town.

Swissmiss said...

Carol Burnett was interviewed on TV a while back and she talked about costume designer Bob Mackie, who did all the costumes - every single one - for her long-running comedy show.

When he gave her the skirt for the Mrs. A-Wiggins skit, he had made it so she HAD to walk oddly. She had no choice. It made the skit even funnier.

Kate DOES have a choice in what she wears.

ok - this photo is unbelievable. This is what you want your children to possibly see?? "The girls" hanging out in all their "glory"?!

And, let me tell you, in this neck of the woods on that day, it was rainy and COLD... my friend & I took our teenage daughters to the Jonas Brother's Road Dogs softball game, and we were very cold and wet! (but the teenagers didn't mind one bit!! ;-) )
That "top" was WAY too light and flimsy for that day's weather in the NY/NJ/CT tri-state area.

Kate is such trash.....

I just have to shake my head. While flipping through channels last night I came upon the chicken show. I realized that Kate doesn't speak to her children, she speaks at them. Kate seldom looks at her children, because she is too busy looking into the camera. After about 3 minutes I threw up in my mouth a little and had to just turn the TV off. Hopefully if this "show" the kids put on actually happened, maybe she gave them her full attention for more than 5 minutes. Oh but wait! She was busy getting it all on film, cause it’s all about the camera. So, so Sad.

Thanks, Mods, for a well-controlled site.

I do appreciate you even more after I have seen some of the other anti-gosselin sites.

I don't understand why adults have to use gutter language to prove a point.

Just common, every-day language does the job as well.

Auntie Anne said...

I can't help but wonder what Kate sees when she looks in her mirror.

Does she see a slut, or does she see a thoroughly modern, high-class woman?

If she is trying to look like a scuzz-bucket, she has succeeded.

If she has delusions and sees an amazingly beautiful, young, classy woman, then she is further off her track than I ever imagined.

TheLunchBunch said...

"They don't even have the "luxury" of getting a balanced meal for lunch in the school cafeteria."

No Pre-K or K kids eat in the school dining commons. They don't have a choice because it's school policy. They may purchase milk there and bring it back to their rooms. The twins may either bring their lunch, or eat in the cafeteria.

Your daughter sounds a very level-headed young lady. Kudos.

I have to admit, I went through a brief phase where I wore heels with mini-skirts and skimpy tops. But this was when I was a TEENAGER and suddenly could make my own decisions about what I was allowed to wear. But trust me, the phase didn't last long as I quickly found out just WHY girls shouldn't dress that way. I received a lot of unwelcome attention from guys who made certain assumptions about me based on my clothes.

But Kate loves the attention she gets. She just wants people to talk about her, even if they're asking, "I wonder how much she charges per hour?"

Kit said...

"Do you think there is a chance she's in NY to buy a dress for the Emmys..."

Kate? PAY for a dress? She "might" have been in NYC to PICK a freebie dress from some designer, but I don't see Kate BUYING an expensive designer dress. You know, she is a "stah" and stahs don't pay for clothes - designers beg them to wear their clothes, dahling.

Okay, so the world is getting bored with Kate. Her star is falling. So, the way to get back on those magazines, is to allow a slip up; a pap shot of her and Steve-o kissing! Betcha it's gonna happen....

Wasn't today the first day of school for the kids?

I'm hoping the lack of photos means that no photos were taken.

Unfortunately, that probably also means that Miss Thang wasn't there either.

"I notice in these latest photos that Steve is looking a bit on the orange side. Side-by-side tanning?"

Same-bed tanning??!!

Either that, or, the tan-in-a-bottle rubs off.....Oh my!!!!

@ TheLunchBunch

Now that you mention it, I believe someone else posted earlier that preK and K kids don't eat in the lunch room. I'd forgotten that. Wouldn't make a difference anyway. "She packs" the twins' lunches, so you know there's no way on God's green earth that she will allow the younger kids to buy their lunches when they are old enough. I highly doubt she sends them to school with milk money, either, since in the earlier shows she talked about packing juice boxes in the twins' lunches. For a nurse who supposedly had to learn something about nutrition in her classes, she doesn't seem to know much about preparing nutritious meals for growing children.

I just have to shake my head. While flipping through channels last night I came upon the chicken show. I realized that Kate doesn't speak to her children, she speaks at them. Kate seldom looks at her children, because she is too busy looking into the camera.

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

Exactly. She's no mom anymore, just a person desperate to have the cameras love her. She's truly stuck in her own warped reality.

You may be right about that. However, packing lunch gets very "old" after awhile, and depending upon how lazy she gets, writing one check for the meal plan in advance just may be much more appealing to her!! Unless, of course, the nannies pack the lunches.

What more does Kate Gosselin have to offer the world than a peek at her appendages? The farther she slides down the celebrity charts the more will be revealed. People now recognize her for her bleach blonde in-her-face hair, her short skirts, stiletto heels and her revealing tops. It is her new image that make her oh so visible in society. If she showed up in jeans, tennis shoes, a conservative top and her brown hair, who would even notice her?
This get-up is her neon sign pointing and blinking so we can see she's right there.

Now she has to get people to care.
That's going to be the hard part.

I think that the story at gather.com is talking about a story in Star mag and that story is from last year!!! Guess Kate's people don't want us to know she didn't see them off to school after writing that sob story of a blog about the kids all going to school all week and all day,so they put an old story out. The pics show Kate with her short hair and one pic with her pink hat on.

Denni Don't Like K8 said...

Noticed on PollDaddy.com the following tidbit about Katie Kreider.....this afternoon there was a poll posted about Kate&8.. The question asked "Should Kate + 8 show continue to be aired?" Here are some of the poll numbers from 1525 votes as of 4 p.m. today:
67.5% say take the show off the air
8.5% don't care anymore
7.3% won't watch the show without Jon
Hey, that's over 80% of those responding think negatively or not at all about the show. Katie, your 15 minutes is ticking down!

Not only would Kate not BUY a designer dress, a designer dress would be too tasteful for her. (although we've all seen some really ugly designer dresses)

I went to take a nap and one of the shows had a thing about Khate and the boobyguard being an item now. He disciplines and scolds the kids i.e. don't talk to your mother like that. They were taking walks on the beach alone at night in Bald Head, etc. That woman would let anybody step in and discipline her kids - first Jamie and now Steve and probably even the crew - just anybody so she don't have get up off lazy butt and do it herself. The poor kids they don't have a chance. No wonder they don't want to through the prison gates after being with the dad. Those are great kids as long as their basic needs are met like frickin food, water, rest, love and attention. There is no reason for her to let every Tom, Dick and Harry that passes through discipline and scold them. Yuck - she has got to be the worst mommy (in name only) of all time. That is also whe she won't let Jon on the property, because she is not alone.

It's kind of hard to send them off to school when school doesn't start until tomorrow!!

Didn't the kids all get new lunch
boxes for school last year? The ones with the animals on them? We've seen Kate slide peanut butter and jelly on bread for the kids' lunches the night before. She sure isn't getting up in the mornings to slap lunch together.

I wonder if they each get a whole sandwich yet?

I just got my new Dish magazine. Under new shows it lists 'Twist of Kate" starting in November.

Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

One thing I know is that I have no future as a reality tv exec (can cross that off my "what color is my parachute" list, along with goatherd and Hallmark card artist. How and why on earth do the execs at TLC continue to think that Kate is a good investment of their money when she is tanking in the ratings? I just don't get it.

the weight for 6 year old boys, age 72.5 months is 20.777 kg (45.8 lbs) and for girls it is 20.33636 kg (44.8 lbs).

The Average weight for a 9 year old would be 69 pounds and the average height for a 9 year old would be 53 1/4 inches.

She is clearly underfeeding them at home and in the lunchboxes that they take to school. that is why she packs them juicy juice so she won't have to buy them milk at school. i wonder if she weighs them before they go to jon's and weighs themn when they get back?

Witch.

Television Without Pity has released their Tubey Awards for 2010:

Worst Reality Show: Jon and Kate + 8
TWP also commented: "This was barely even a contest, though there was a little surge for Toddlers & Tiaras."

Most Appalling Reality Show Star
Winner: Kate Gosselin (Dancing with the Stars/Kate Plus 8)

Most people would be mortified, but I bet Khates take on it is this "Stupid people forgot the Jon's gone and his name has been removed from the title, but they spelled my name right!"

Save the Gosselin 8
