what an ass said...

I am not an outdoorsy girl. I would hate to sleep in a tent and pee in a bucket. I love cool AC, clean sheets, and a shower before crawling into bed. Sounds like Kate is much the same. So WHY would she sign up for this camping trip with Sarah Palin? Why waste all that time, energy, money, and manpower only to melt down embarrassingly in front of her children, the cameras and the former governor of Alaska? I would not have wanted to camp in the Alaskan wilderness, either, but if I had agreed to do so for my job, with such an important person, and in front of my kids, I would have sucked it up and smiled. She could have demanded the cabin from the get go to avoid making an ass of herself. What about being a contract honorer? What about Can Do Kate? What about setting an example for your kids? Kate Gosselin is completely worthless. Such a waste of skin

Brummygirl said...

The thing here was, Kate did not do her homework. As always she leaves it to her hired lackeys and obviously expected to have special services laid on for her.
Kate, you made me laugh when I saw your roughed up look and I just knew you had had a bad time.
T.L.C. is paying you to do your job, contract honourer #1, so honour it, suck it up and put on a brave face. It was only for a few days.
People would have had far more respect for you if you had not left your kids to do what you should have done.
What was the matter? Couldn't Steve fit in the tent?

Moose On The Loose said...

How long were they in Alaska? The camping trip was supposed to take up 2 days, I thought. That would be a sizeable chunk of the trip.

July 19-28.

Monster Mommy said...

Rumor has it... that Kate is a major "Cousin Oliver"- jinx. Everything she lays her greedy goblin hands on, has the Midas' effect... in reverse. Don't make me name everyone she has touched, eew.

Cry Me a RIver said...

That could have had more to do with the fact that Sarah has a bigger production than she does and she is making right at a million per episode whereas Khate is getting roughly a million per season and she has to share that with the kids and Jon.

But still you know she had to have walked in on a huge production there in the wilderness. Also the fact that she won't be TLCs ratings queen anymore because Sarah's show is sure to bring in huge ratings.

I think the food thing was just an excuse for a jealous fit of a different type.

Khate wasn't raised in the lap of luxury; in fact, quite the opposite. She would have no problem using a bucket or even the wilderness for that matter. The way she pops her gum belies her roots. I would say she is animalistic but animals take better care of their young than she does. Maybe a better word is crude.

Cry Me a RIver said...

Oh and the topper, the kids would have loved the one on one attention from her dad and brother, and Mr. Palin, plus all the kids that would have been there. It would have been very educational for them and they would have gotten some much needed attention.

And you know they would have loved eating hot dogs and hamburgers which they were not denied by Palin but their mother who snurled up nose up at them demanding organic instead.

In my opinion organic is but a word stamped on a package and much overused in Khate's vocabulary.

ChurchMouse said...

Apparently Ms. Gosselin found it odd to be expected to sit on a plastic potty seat on a bucket.

It's not as if she's ever made her own kids do that on film--oh, right.

Karma sure is interesting.

JoyinVirginia said...

I think it is really cool that the kids got to experience camping with a family that actually enjoys it, and had some time away from their mother and purse-boy. I am not a Palin fan, but she has never cut off communication with her own family, and she really enjoys the outdoor activities with her family. You just know she can set up her own tent and clean her own fish, and that is a good role model for girls especially to be self-reliant.

The perfect TV show I would actually tune in to watch Ms. Kreider on: NBC's "I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!" where a bunch of celebrities desperately trying to stay in the public eye are sent to live together in a jungle somewhere for a couple of weeks. The one with Spencer Pratt and Heidi What's-her-name was HILARIOUS! Mostly because of their whining.
THIS is the reality show Ms. Kreider belongs on. They get to dig their OWN holes for a "bathroom".
If she was on Big Brother, that would be fun too. The fights! The drama! I can just picture how much fun it would be to watch, just like a train wreck!

Aunt Chris said...

It just shows how much Kate is unaware of anything but herself. Who DOESN'T know that Sarah Palin is a wilderness chick? Kate thought she was in for a pampered "camping" trip with a famous person. Too bad a bear didn't grab both of them and run away...

Vanessa said...

Explains all the "more than usual" sourpuss face pics from Alaska, the ones at the airport too.
But see...there's mainstream media reports on her "diva-ish" behaviour about camping, but NOTHING on the video of the kids in total distress.

Exactly! What were/where was Kate's PARENTAL preparedness planning, input, responsibilities etc..with respect to the organizing of the camping trip. She was taking her EIGHT children on a camping trip, in Alaska no less. Did she think her ONLY responsibility was to just 'show up' and ALL the rest would be taken care of.

Hissy Fit in Alaska? said...

There is a picture on perezhilton.com with Kart and Purseboy where he has his hand on a car door and she has her hand over his........

Weird and creepy.

Is it true that Kart and Purseboy were "absent" for two days in Alaska all by their little old selves? Not-a-nanny had the kids?

I'm almost tempted to pick up a copy of the national enquirer rag to read all about her epic fail in wilderness camping.....

Skinny Marie said...

Why are there never any paparazzi photos of Kate out with all the kids WITHOUT the TLC cameras following them?

Does she only take them places if they are being filmed for the show?

Sobby McFibberpants said...

Brummygirl said...

But contrary to popular speculation, this historic meeting of America's Two Most Polarizing Moms will not be seen in one of those "Kate Plus Eight" specials TLC has been running, in which Kate takes her kids to various places to show them a "good time."

Instead, TLC President Eileen O'Neill told TV critics attending Summer TV Press Tour 2010 that the Palins "graciously shared their Alaska with the Gosselin family," and that campaign trip will be part of an episode of Palin's new TLC series, "Sarah Palin's Alaska."

8888888888888888888888888888888888888
Shameless!! The lack of protection and privacy in these children's lives boggles the mind! Does TLC plan to use the "bankable 8" for any new show that fails to drum up enough interest? Will Mady and Cara be guest stars on the Choppers SR.vs JR. show now that they are experts in family conflict? And TLC and Dina, I mean Kate continue to say the kids are just living life normally on camera and not working. Yeah, don't think so.

TLC please give it up already. Kate is not likable enough to sustain a friendship, let alone a career. All things must come to an end. The Gosselin 8 have been exploited for profit long enough, and using the them in 'crossover' programming is just ramming that point home.

MabelD said...

It must be a bitter pill for Kate to have "endured" what she did in Alaska, all for the sake of someone else's show - someone who is being paid millions, compared to the pittance K + 8 are receiving. I have to wonder whether the cross-promotion duties are in her contract or whether she is getting a bonus for the trip.

Another thought: If the blind item rumor is indeed about Kate and Steve, that would most likely put an end to Kate + TLC. Even if she were to eventually marry Steve, she would still want to pursue a "career," and Steve would be on the road with whatever celebrity who'd employ him for "protection." The kids wouldn't be much better off, and Kate would have a husband proven to have a roving eye.

Brummygirl said...

Midnight Serenade said from last Free Discussion:

That makes much more sense than "campaign," although Palin has announced that she's embarking on a campaign offering endorsements. I couldn't imagine what part Kate would play in that, but with TLC, you just never know

Perhaps she will carry Palin's Purse!! :)

To be fair, tlc has done just that for her for years.
On the other hand, she willingly sold her soul and may be too stupid to realize that there woul be "payment due."

PA G-ma said...

There are no words to describe this worthless "mother" who took her children to a faraway place and "dumped" them to be looked after by strangers, while "mother" looked after Steve's needs.

Moose On The Loose said...

"I think it is really cool that the kids got to experience camping with a family that actually enjoys it, and had some time away from their mother and purse-boy."


The kids stayed on the camping trip without their mother? It was reported that they spent the night in a cabin with electricity, bathroom and running water...sans Palin and her family, who spent the night in a tent. All of them flew back to Wasilla the next morning.

readerlady said...

Brummygirl said "What was the matter? Couldn't Steve fit in the tent?" Perhaps Palin drew the line at adultery on camera?

I had to laugh at Khate's freakout about the bucket with the toilet seat. She's lucky they didn't hand her a shovel and a roll of biodegradable paper and tell her to "bush it"! And the hissy fit about feeding the kids pre-packaged meats, cheese and crackers. They NEVER eat that sort of junk - oh, wait - there are numerous episodes showing her feeding them just that and nothing else for a meal. As for mooseburgers - I can understand wanting the kids to eat familiar foods, especially on a trip - but a good mother would encourage them to give it a taste, at least. Who knows, they just might like it (although I have to admit, my impulse is EEEWWWWW! LOL). What's going to happen when they're served unfamiliar food at school or if, God forbid, she actually allows them to have friends and they're invited over for dinner or a sleepover. Is she going to send them off with a baggie of a cheese cube, a few crackers, and 2 or 3 grapes?

Pa Mom Knows said...

"Khate wasn't raised in the lap of luxury; in fact, quite the opposite. She would have no problem using a bucket or even the wilderness for that matter."

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

While it wasn't the "lap of luxury," it wasn't "quite the opposite" either. Kate was raised in a very nice home on a nice-sized piece of land in a lovely area. She graduated from a very good private Christian school. Her father owned quite a bit of property. It is not in the slums, nor in the wilderness, and nobody either at her home or in the school had to use buckets. There was running water and electricity, and yes, even toilets.

They all had, so to speak, pots to p*** in.

They were there, in the wilderness, for two hours, listening to their mother throw a fit. I don't call that camping.

Moose On The Loose said...

"I think it is really cool that the kids got to experience camping with a family that actually enjoys it, and had some time away from their mother and purse-boy."

When did this happen? It's reported that they spent two hours at the campsite before moving to a cabin where they stayed the night, and everyone, Palins included, flew back to Wasilla the next morning.
The kids actually got to go camping without their mom and Steve? Where, and with whom?

In the immortal words of my television favorite, Adrian Monk, "I don't want to get nature on me."
If it grows outside, I'm allergic to it. I hate to be cold. I wouldn't go to the bathroom the whole two days if I had to use a bucket.
That being said, if my children had an opportunity to have an experience that I think really would be a lasting memory for them, one they would enjoy after the long plane flights and smiling for the cameras, I would damn sure suck it up and make sure they got the most out of the camping trip.
I think it would be especially interesting to learn from teachers as they went-proper names of things, what's dangerous and what isn't, etc.
Don't even get me started about taking your kids that far away and not knowing every detail, including how long to the nearest medical care, before you commit to the trip.
But that's just me.

Cry Me a RIver said...

I read the Enguirer article and it sounds like they may have got some footage at Sarah's house - they all flew back there a day earlier than planned it said.

Is there any verification for this? All I ever saw was a picture of 5 of the tups standing outside a shuttle or van and there was speculation. Kate and Steve weren't in the picture but neither were the twins.

BeDoneNow said...

Could it be, that this 'camping disaster' was deliberatly leaked by TLC or Discovery Inc, to draw attention away from the video of the children's terror of going home?

The Diva-Camps-Out can be spinned, managed, propped, and controlled. The Something-Is-Wrong-At-Home video cannot be managed at all by Kate and her team. NO ONE will fall for the 'low blood sugar meltdown was all Jon's fault'. Not even the sheeple are spinning that, instead their efforts have been on "Bad Jon let it be filmed and it soils our darling Kate. Ungrateful brats."

That video had no where to go but south, or to an investigation of what the hell is going on in that house. Time for a BIGGER DISTRACTION, right?

annastasia said...

If she would have been a normal mother,she would have just given the moose burgers to the kids,and they likely would not even known it was not beef! I was raised on moose,deer and elk meat-all very healthy,and low-fat.And ORGANIC!!One of my kids would eat any kind of meat,as long as I told her it was porkchops!!

Except, sadly, for the Gosselin kids it wasn't a camping trip, it was like every experience in their entire lives, completely fake and staged, with cameras and microphones in their faces, a director saying "action" and "cut", and their mother doing her usual Jekyll-and-Hyde depending on whether the cameras are rolling or not. Nothing even remotely like a normal camping trip. The kids are basically like trained seals or dancing bears in a circus act. Tragic, horrifying. My heart aches for them, and my head can't wrap around the idea that nobody and nothing is able to put a stop to this madness.

Aeris said...

I think Kate's sense of entitlement and special treatment is evident in the camping fiasco. After all, this is Kate and America's favorite multiples! She probably assumed there would be cabins with running water and electricity provided for her extra special family. I am no Sarah Palin fan, but I appreciate her efforts to go on an authentic camping trip with the G's, not a luxury stay in a cabin.

If Khate didn't have Lunchables to complain about, she'd be complaining about the hotdogs/hamburgers that Palin supposedly ate. Of course they'd have to be organic and/or veggie based to suit Khate.

Tami said...

I saw on the other discussion someone ask if a Christian family would share their meals. I don't buy the entire story as it was written. Note that they first say the Palins were used to camping and expected to have picnic type food like Lunchables for dinner. I don't buy that. Then it goes on to say that the Palins did not have the Lunchables but had burgers and hot dogs. So which is it? I believe that TLC was responsible for packing Kate's food and she did not even bother (as usual) to check on things and see that her kids got what they wanted or needed. As usual she relies on craft services. I'm sure someone would have "shared the hotdogs and burgers" with them if she had not thrown a fit and ran off right away. She probably got a 5 star meal that night. While her kids ate grapes. The fit was probably about what KHATE would not eat and not what she would want her kids not to eat.

Tami said...

If I were Sarah I would have preferred RV camping anyway. It may have even suited Khate. Plus, I'm sure bears in the AK wilderness can be a problem and I'd have a problem sleeping out there in a tent. If I tent camp, I'd want a shower house nearby with at least some sort of bathroom facility. As has been pointed out, she should have found out ahead of time! And then sucked it up if she didn't..

Captain of the Titanic said...

To make up for the Alaska fiasco, TLC plans to film Kate ice climbing on the Greenland glacier. Due to the extreme nature of this climb, none of the children will be allowed on site for the filming. Producers are planning a great big "oopsie" when the glacier calves and Kate goes floating off into the Atlantic. It is unknown at this time why a special crew has been at the site setting in place GPS disabling devices. According to an unnamed source, Kate is determined to show that she can do anything she sets her mind to and the crew is now willing to let her do just that. Bon voyage.....

Adrian will forever be immortal in my book. Here's the thing: (LOL!) I think for Kate, though, camping in the wilderness is no blessing, it's a curse. And you're right -- I never, in my wildest dreams, would allow my kids to go anywhere without having checked everything out beforehand, including food, shelter, medical facilities, etc. But that's the way I am.

Here's what happened: She relied on everyone else to serve as surrogates, including packing food in lieu of her having to take care of lunchly duties. Only this time something went wrong, and rather than be caught with her pants down, she and her entourage simply left. Is this what she is teaching her children...when the going gets tough, you just pack up and leave?

gosselin who? said...

I HATE, repeat: HATE!! Camping. Especially in a tent. It is loathsome. But, kids love it, and it is good for them. So, I did it. And I had fun watdhing my kids have fun. Most of us do. We think more about our kids than ourselves. That is what makes a good mom.

Kate is not a good mom, because she almost never thinks about what the kids want, or need. She thinks about herself--and what she wants and greeds.

Once In A Blue Moon said...

"Does she only take them places if they are being filmed for the show?"

--------

Seems that way. TLC is footing the bill. Why would she pay for anything?

silimom said...

I know others will disagree, but I really don't think Steve is Kate's lover. I think she is emotionally dependent on him. I think she is attracted to him because she can't boss him around. I think Steve is her handler and uses her feelings for him to keep her diva behavior in check. I think TLC pays him exceptionally well and that is why he stays. Once Kate's shows are cancelled and she's faded into obscurity and mediocrity, he'll be gone.

Not sure if the blind gossip item someone mentioned is current or from last year. I wouldn't read too much into their hints, however.

Laurie said...

StoryLady - Here's the thing....I agree with you 100%!

stupidisasstupiddoes said...

How dare TLC forget to include Kate's gold plated travel toilet seat and the Gosselin children's little 'silver platters' (to serve up those cheese & cracker lunchables) on the things to bring to Alaska camping list. Tsk Tsk

It was a story in the NE. When did the tabloid go to press? Before or after the video was leaked?

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

Silimom, I have also thought the same thing at times. However, I believe the old adage, if it sounds like a duck and quacks like a duck, well, you know the rest. There is usually truth to rumours and I have noticed that the National Enquirer usually has accurate stories believe it or not. They are sometimes the first to break real stories. Regarding Jon, with strong women like Kate, they go for men they can push around. That is the initial attraction. Things are in sympatico for a while, romance and sex is still good. Then the very thing that attracted her to him is the very thing that repulses her as time goes on. That is why she ostensibly has gone after Steve. He is the antithesis of Jon. He tells her what to do. We saw that in the limo when she broke down claiming exhaustion. He also gave her the big pep talk before the book signing that no one showed up to. She met him when she was emotionally vulnerable. And he filled that void. It only makes sense that she would want a relationship with him. I am positive it is a sexual one. And he must not be a stubby either as she has had her fill of that. Look at his wife Gina. She is not svelte and Hollywood-ized like Kate. Kate had a reputation before Jon for being a bit of a slut. I'm sure she worked it big time with Steve and worked it for what it was worth. Women like that define themselves by their sexuality and coquettishness and who they can catch in their web. Poor Steve. He has his hands full. He will eventually tire of the shrew or better yet, she will find some passivity in him, cross her legs and send him packing back to his wife.

Carezee said...

Okay am I missing something here? So Jon drops the kids off at the McMansion and they are crying for him to not leave him. We have film and pictures of this. Only one gossip column seemed to pick this up. But stop the presses....Khate is taking her 8 count them 8 children for hair cuts oh and has a camera crew to document this momentous occasion. Every gossip site has the pictures. She gets paid to do something and it is everywhere. Jon is being a loving father and you don't hear about it. I am so sick of the blinders people are wearing when it concerns this woman. I also noticed that Perez mentioned her trip to Alaska. He sounds like maybe he is on TLC's payroll. He talked up Khate and threw a jab in on Jon. Grrr.... it makes me so angry. I am glad that I have a safe haven here with all of you to vent my frustration. Thanks for listening.

Once in a Blue Moon, Laurie: I will provide the wipes and the Sierra Springs, but (twists neck uncomfortably and touches lamp), I don't know if I could let my kids eat a moose.
I'd rather have them eat Lunchables. They are compartmentalized, sealed and dated. I will point out here that salmonella is organic.
My point here is, I believe that even though of course it would be filmed and the kids would be manipulated, they would still get some joy and knowledge and . . .peace, if they're lucky. Remember Aaden and the zookeeper? He really hit it off with that man. They were on the same wavelength. I think something good could have come of this trip, as opposed to most of the other crap they've filmed. JMO.
Remember Blue Moon, Laurie: It's a Jungle Out There.

BerksPa said...

Interesting article in our local paper about the "Most Famous People from Berks County".
For a few months, the Reading Eagle has been hosting an online poll of famous people in entertainment, history, etc.
They just announced the top four winners (Taylor Swift winning the Entertainment category)
However this companion article http://readingeagle.com/article.aspx?id=232844&obref=obinsite shows how the votes were decided on and mention in depth the Gosselin effect.

For those NOT from this area. Kate has left a bad taste in peoples mouth. She has not even tried to acclimate herself to the community and its people she lives here but doesn't want to contribute in any way.

If she was any sort of person worth respect she would have volunteered at the Extreme Makeover project here in Berks..that is a show on ABC which seems to think Kate is beyond repute. Instead she ignores these type of fundraisers and do good acts and still expects the community to embrace her.

I don't think I've met one person in the county that hates Kate, but nearly everyone I know has had an experience with Kate or knows of a relative/friend that has had a 'run in' with her. All in all the perception of her is pretty sad and at times harsh.
The only redeeming factor in her life are those beautiful children, yet she uses them and their 'cuteness' for her meal ticket. We all see it, and it pains us.

As for Jon, I do believe he's trying to do what he can to give those kids some sort of normalcy. Taking them to local kid friendly places (like "The Works"-which my children love to go to) and the park, etc. Even just hanging by the pool at his apartment where they can be normal 'not on camera' kids.
Jon is Not perfect and needs to get a job, but I do believe there is a bigger issue regarding that than what we know that's made public. I mean, if we really thought about it...if the roles were switched, Kate wouldn't be working either if she didn't have a TV job, so why is it okay for Kate to do TV and not Jon? Why is TLC keeping him under their thumb.
Okay...rambled too long for a Sunday Morning...had to get some thoughts out.

JoyinVirgiia said...

I misunderstood prior posts and references to the different news articles. I thought that when Ms. Kreider and purse-boy retired to a hotel, that the kids and nanny were able to stay on to camp. I thought that explained why Ms. Kreider was away from the kids for a couple of days. Wishful thinking on my part, if the kids could have been left alone with the Palins camping for a couple of days, I bet they would have had a great time, getting dirty and all.

"BlindGossip – Two reality show people. One married. One not. They’ve been carrying on behind the scenes for months. The married one is leaving their spouse and coming out to be with the other one. Publicly. The production company has plenty of changes to deal with at this point and doesn’t know yet how they are going to handle this bombshell."

It was a BG Item on 8/6/10, so it's new.

Amy2 said...

After reading the posts I had a thought about Kate's future martial status. Much speculation has been made about Kate and Steve (the purse carrier). Are they or aren't they an item? I don't know. I go back and forth on this one. But it got me to thinking what does Kate worship above all (and anyone) else; fame and money. Can Steve give her that? I'm not so sure that she wouldn't want to go to the "next level" above Steve's place in life. After all he's only a bodyguard, not a captain of industry. Nobody outside of GWoP and other similar sites really know who Steve is. His status/occupation is not going to further her ambition. I believe she will start fishing for a Donald Trump type; endless money, status, servants and she doesn't have to pay for any of it. While IMO Kate's light is dimming I believe its just going to go in another direction. And while she's out fishing, the kids are just an afterthought.

Kitty The Dog's Blog said...

FYI - on Khate's latest blog (wink wink) Khate claims that she goes to the market each week and fills TWO shopping karts until they are full and puts all the groceries on the conveyor belt herself and that SHE BAGS 20 TO 25 BAGS OF GROCERIES HERSELF! And that she has to calculate how to fit all the bags into an SUV meant for a 'normal' family's groceries. The kids have 16 helping hands and crush the grocery bags. I guess she cant be bothered to use reusable bags. She also says she pays for the groceries and I believe she is implying that she is paying them herself with "her own" money.

On another note. Does anyone know WHY Khate insists on having organic items other than to lord it over people and imply that she is better than others who do not or cannot afford to buy organic items? I go to SDA church and many of the members are vegetarians, and many try to have organic items whenever possible. The reason I was given for this is that when you purchase an item, you condone the method by which it was produced and organic farms, companies, etc. are more earth friendly and we are to try to be good stewards of the earth. Im not trying to be preachy here, but it was a reason I had to ask about, its not something that is preached about or used to make others look or feel bad. I have never heard Khate give any caring, spiritual or logical reason for her insistance on organic foods. DId I miss something?

Its expensive for our family to buy organic items. My daughter has celiac disease and so we have to buy a lot of gluten free items, which a lot of times are also organic and just a loaf of bread is approx. $8. Crackers and other snacks for school lunches are easily 2-3 times as much as conventional snacks. I cant imagine buying organic groceries for a family of 9 (plus staff) if I didnt have a spiritual or medical reason to do so. Do we know if any of the kids have this sort of issue that would cause her to HAVE to buy organic? I cant imagine she cares about the earth. And if she cares so much about her children's health and well-being, she would not do 99% of the things she does to them.

Just a thought. Can anyone remember if she ever stated WHY she does the organic thing?

To make up for the Alaska fiasco, TLC plans to film Kate ice climbing on the Greenland glacier. Due to the extreme nature of this climb, none of the children will be allowed on site for the filming. Producers are planning a great big "oopsie" when the glacier calves and Kate goes floating off into the Atlantic. It is unknown at this time why a special crew has been at the site setting in place GPS disabling devices. According to an unnamed source, Kate is determined to show that she can do anything she sets her mind to and the crew is now willing to let her do just that. Bon voyage.....

Thanks for this hilarious post--very well done.

Surely Kate has a techie-service who have access to pink iphone #5 and can wipe the whole thing remotely.

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

Look at who Kate chose for a husband. A nobody with no ambition. Going from Jon to Steve is a huge leap for Kate. Her biggest fear is finding someone who will take her on with 8, count em, 8 kids and if Steve has already accepted her with all that baggage, then why look any further. She knows she may never find another sucker after Steve so why not just settle now? He is more of a man than Jon ever was. At least Kate has the father image she has always wanted.

It's a good thing that Adrian didn't eat at Taco Bell. They have the salmonella thing going right now.
I'll take two Sierra Springs, please...it has to be an even number.

StoryLady...I agree, something good could have come from the camping trip, even if it were filmed. No filming would have been much better, but...

It would have been educational, and the kids could have had the time of their lives. It also could have been a lesson in manners, in respect, for the former governor of the state. But they saw nothing of it, only a meltdown by their mother, and more fussing, whining, griping. That's what they learned -- if you don't like something, you just pack up and move on out, rather than sticking it out. What lesson is that going to teach those kids? Entitlement has been instilled in them, and sadly, it's only going to get worse.

Heading out to touch some parking meters. There's disorder and confusion, but you know what... I'm in charge here!

Hippie Chick said...

@Kitty the Dog's Blog...I have often wondered the same thing. If she cared so much about the earth, she would be using resuable bags (they're 99 freaken' cents!!). She wouldn't be driving a gas guzzling vehicle, or using paper plates at every meal. There are so many things she does that contradicts the fact that she cares about our beautiful Mother Earth. I think she does it for status. Personally, I am a vegetarian, & TRY to buy organic, when I CAN. When the week is tight money wise, I buy regular food. I also have my own business, & make organic bath & body products, & yes, they are pricey, but I don't price gauge people. I know the organic thing is important to many people, as it is to me, & really, khate should be giving us reasons WHY it is so important to her. She probably knows the real celebrities eat organically, so she wants to do it too, I don't know. Khate never explains herself, she just digs herself a messy little hole of lies that keeps getting deeper & deeper, & one day, hopefully soon, she won't be able to get out of it.

Carezee said...

I am sick over hearing about Khate and her 8 count them 8 children. My mom had 13 count them 13 children. Not a multiple in the bunch. That means she delivered 13 separate times. All natural. Was she crazy? Perhaps. But the point is my dad was gone 12-13 hours a day. My mom did the shopping, laundry, cooking (not organic)and cleaning herself. Of course as we got older we helped her. She never had not a nanny or maids. She did it herself. I might add that my parents made it a point one night a week to set aside time for each other. Hence the 13 children I guess. My mom was a stay at home mom and never complained about it. We had homemade dinners every night. We didn't have a fancy home or fancy cars but we never felt like we didn't have everything we needed. If my parents could feed and clothe and keep a roof over our house why can't the Kons? By the way they just celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary.

silimom said...
I know others will disagree, but I really don't think Steve is Kate's lover. I think she is emotionally dependent on him. I think she is attracted to him because she can't boss him around. I think Steve is her handler and uses her feelings for him to keep her diva behavior in check. I think TLC pays him exceptionally well and that is why he stays. Once Kate's shows are cancelled and she's faded into obscurity and mediocrity, he'll be gone.

Not sure if the blind gossip item someone mentioned is current or from last year. I wouldn't read too much into their hints, however.
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

I agree. Steve was never ever hired to be a 'bodyguard', but rather her minder, sitter, for the sole purpose of keeping her attitude out of the public eye. I do believe that Kate THOUGHT he was there for her safety and that is why he shoves peons away from her. But in actuality, he didnt want her going off on a 'fan'.

And the blind gossip thing: Come one lets face it, ya cant swing a dead cat in your living room without slamming it into at least 100 reality shows. The chance that someone was writing about Kate is very slim.

And "I do everything ALL ALONE" mom, cant even be bothered to shop and pack her own picnic cooler?

But... here we all are, talking about everything EXCEPT the kids screaming in the van. TLC has done a good job of redirecting our attention.

Dr. Lillian Glass has posted about Khate in her latest blog. She definitely has Khate's number.

hayden said...

Kitty The Dog's Blog said: (snipped) "On another note. Does anyone know WHY Khate insists on having organic items other than to lord it over people and imply that she is better than others who do not or cannot afford to buy organic items?"
---------------------------------
You said it... "to lord over people." Someone who wants to provide organic food and items for their family solely to avoid pesticides and antibiotics, etc. or as you said, to be a good stewards of the earth, just do it and don't even mention it. People who do it and have to MAKE SURE YOU KNOW EVERY BITE OF FOOD THAT GOES INTO THEIR CHILD'S MOUTH IS ORGANIC!!!!! like Khate and a relative of mine, do it because IMHO, have guilt over their parental shortcomings. My relative speaks down her nose at everyone about how her children have never tasted fast food (another Khate lie as well!) wear organic clothing, have organic matresses and they even have organic toys. In the meantime, her husband has left her, she is barely clinging on to her home and the kids spend long hours in daycare. We take her with a grain of salt, if she needs to toot her own horn to make herself feel better about the mess they're in, whatever.


Kate is the same way, how many millions of times have we heard she laid on bedrest for 30 weeks? She makes sure everyone knows about her great sacrifice (~eye roll~ millions of us have done it and would do it again in a heartbeat), as if this justifies making the kids work for her bling-bling lifestyle ok. My mother always told me to make sure to acknowledge those who are truly good and giving people, because those people will rarely acknowledge themselves. But to watch out for the ones who constantly have to tell you how wonderful they are, the braggarts. Because deep down they are troubled and insecure individuals.

For what it's worth, she wasn't too welcome or appreciated in our area either (Lancaster County, E-Town, Mt. Joy). She's yours now! LOL! No refunds, no returns!

IDModo said...

Amy2- Steve's bio says he is the Executive vice president of Prudential Associates, an international security company.

Hil salary is probably over and above his per diem working for Kate/TLC.

I can see Kate believing that, as a husband, he could provide her with the status and money she wants;for a few years, anyhow; or until the kids are older or something better comes along.

She's such a mother**** said...

re: Kitty the Dog's Blog: I agree. I rarely read anything Kate unless it's here but I did wander over to *her* blog today. I had the same feeling: that my two kids, who actually help but things in the cart then onto the conveyor belt then into sacks then into the car then into the house, were not on par with her kids. Grant it, I only have four eager hands ready to help versus her sixteen, but at least my kids know that I love them unconditionally!

Hard to Keep Loving Jon said...

JibberJabbers, I've mentioned before that I lost that video of Khate and the Boobyguard arriving at NYC hotel....soft porn. It happened after her new "hair" and it must have been on YouTube. It's very, very telling.

maddy said...

About Kate ditching the kids for two days with the Palins, I think people got that from here:

"The eight Gosselin kids were missing their mom on Friday in Anchorage, Alaska. After not seeing Kate Gosselin or her bodyguard Steve Neild in almost two days, the children looked undeniably sad and dejected. While getting off the bus to their hotel, INF Daily’s photographer heard one of the kids asking their bodyguard, “Where’s Mommy and when is she coming back?”

Later the family wrapped up their filming, with all of the kids looking utterly exhausted. We all know what it’s like to have a long day working, but we’re also old enough to pound a few cups of coffee – something the Gosselin kids (hopefully) aren’t doing. Kate and Steve toted the children to their hotel, where they all conked out for the night.

http://bit.ly/co9TtJ

Seriously, you leave your children for two days to be in a hotel?! Great parenting Kate, really. Also, someone in the comments said that they would like to hear from INF how Jon and Kate are in real life and this was their reponse:

Not surprisingly, Kate does not like our photographer (though he’s a super-nice guy). She recently spent a ton of money on new landscaping just to keep the photogs away. Kate’s not around much, doesn’t interact with the kids much, and is very focused on maintaining the celebrity image. Most of the stuff you hear is true, though certainly not all of it – and much of it is a matter of opinion, not fact. Jon is a little more tolerant of photographers – he’s not wild about the paps, but knows it goes with the territory and ultimately benefits his “career.”"

silimom said...

Kate won't help out on Extreme Makeover. Rumor has it they turned her down initially when the tups were born, which is why they had to go with the other makeover show and we know how much Kate loved and appreciated all the work they and her local church gave. (although to be fair, I have to say IMO the designs for the girls room, the nursery and to some degree their master bedroom were pretty awful, but again that's just my opinion).

(jumping up and down clapping hands wildly!) Congrats to your great parents. My mom had 9, count em 9, kids. Attention Kate: that was 9 pregnancies not 2, 9 natural deliveries, not 2 c-sections (which I had myself). Add it all up Kate, you arent the only one who has 'laid on bedrest for 30weeks' for the health and safety of her babies. My mom changed diapers for nearly 14 straight years Kate, shake a stick at that. The difference is: REAL MOTHERS dont moan, complain and carry on about it. It is one of the honors a mother has for the priceless gift of her children.

Never mind - I dunno why I bother. Hugs to you Carezee.

emschick1128 said...

If you haven't yet check out Kate's hilarious blog about how she buys 20-25 bags of groceries every week, bagging them herself of course. How come we never see this on her countless shopping trips? Probably because she's not the one doong it, the hired help is!! I grew up with a family of nine kids and that as usual is a gross exaggeration,25 bags for 8 little kids who barely seem to get fed at all? As usual Kate has to tell all of us what a hardworking single mom she is doing it all by herself. Tending to 26 acres of land by herself then buying 25 bags of groceries never with any help. How does she do it? She is so amazing, like Superwoman. I think I've seen a few pics of her over the past year at the store and the most she ever has is a few bags. She is a pathological liar who a think a shrink would have a field day analyzing

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

Hey Mary. You are right. If it is true, which none of us really know at this point, then he is scum as far as I am concerned. I just like to play super sleuth and play out the "what ifs". If it is not true, I owe Kate and Steve an apology.

Aunt Chris said...

"The kids have 16 helping hands and crush the grocery bags."

How long did it take Kate to count the kids hands? Or did she have a nanny do it?

Did Kate not say on DWTS that basically she would not give in because she lived up to her goals? Also, where is the contract *honourer* here.
How many times has she said on t.v. that that was what she was all about...seeing things through to the end.
Well Katie girl, I guess the Alaskan Wilderness, pre packed tups food and a porta potty put the end to that!!! That is not exactly the throne Her Highness wanted!!!

fidosmommy said...

Kate reminds me of a man I know. He talks at length about his honor, about his integrity, about being a man of his word. OK, fine.
He needed to borrow money, and he promised me he would pay it back by
a certain day, the day he got paid.
It's a month past that certain day and he has not even acknowledged me, much less made an attempt to pay me back. A man of honor. A man of integrity. A man of his word. Right. So SHOW me. Quit talking about it and ACT THE PART.
Be a role model of truth to your two children. Let them see honesty and integrity at work in the home.

Are ya listening, Kate? Words are cheap.

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

I loved your post & agree all but for one part. IMO it could have been a lesson in manners & respect for another human being. Never mind Governor or anything else, she just needs to respect & be mannerly towards others in front of her kids. Yeah, I know, when pigs fly.

I got the impression that the Palin's had been decent to them, had a the dad who was a retired science teacher along to show the kids experiments & whatnot. Those kids had a great opportunity, to spend all of two days in some of the most wondrous & majestic surroundings a person could see & be in.

They weren't asking ol' Frankenkreider for a week, just 48 hours & she couldn't be bothered to just suck it up so her kids could have that experience. To me, nature is an awesome thing, I love it when kids, or anyone for that matter, is given an opportunity to be up close & personal with it. That said, I'm not keen on the camping in tents, I love, love nature I just don't like sleeping out in it, throw in a cabin & hey, I'm golden, JMO personal preference, but I bet some of the G8 would have loved to have slept out in the tents.

To be out in a great place like that, with people who were going to share their love of that beautiful place, it would have been an amazing experience for the kids. They would have not only been able to see it through their own eyes, but they would have had the chance to see it through another adult's eyes that weren't closed like their mother's & that in itself would have been tremendous for them.

These kids are engaging, they are eager to explore & they should be allowed to. Unfortunately until they get out on their own they'll be stuck either only going where mommy wants to go (Chinatown at 103 degrees) or listening to her shriek, witnessing her moronic diva behaviour & trips being cut horribly short because kate doesn't want to be there. And as much as Jon grates on my last nerve he would have stuck that trip out, he stuck it out with kate for 10 years, so what's 2 days in the Alaskan wilderness.

Vanessa said...

In ALLLLLL the tabloid pics of her have we EVER seen one with her and25 bags of groceries??? Have we EVER seen her unload TWENTY FIVE bags into her SUV? (she has a staff employee walk her to her car with maybe 2 or 3 bags!)Have we EVER seen shots of her in her driveway unloading TWENTY FIVE bags of groceries into the konpound? How many shots of her coming/going to the spa/tanning beds? How many shots of her coming/going to Target with 2 bags IN HER CART? (not in her hand) The ONLY time we've MAYBE seen her load that many bags was at that "organic" store where she "supposedly" got lost trying to find it, and Chris "supposedly"
helped her to get there. AGAIN, she's a LIAR. We're a family of 5 with 3 TEENAGE/PRE-TEEN boys and a GROWN MAN, I have a FULLY loaded grocery cart every week, plus I run out for milk and bread every couple of days. I would stockpile milk but I just don't have the luxury of huge restaurant sized fridge UPSTAIRS and then another FULL SIZED fridge downstairs.

Vanessa said...

Don't forget she let her boys chow down on chicken feet at the Dude Ranch...wouldn't mooseburgers be a step up?

Maybe its 20-25 bags because she only puts 1-2 items in each bag!

What is Kate looking for a sympathy or a medal? She has 8 kids for crying out loud!! Does she expect to walk in to the grocery store and leave with ONE bag? Im sure this wasnt her first go 'round grocery shopping and you would think by NOW she would have the routine so down pat she could do it with her eyes closed!! The 16 'helping hands'? The Gosselin children arent babies or even toddlers and are certainly of the AGE and ABILITY to follow SIMPLE instruction and be assigned a grocery shopping 'duty' that doesnt involve the destroying of the groceries. Seriously. Kate's take on grocery shopping makes the most routine life task sound like some covert military operation. It's GROCERY SHOPPING for crying out loud! Get over yourself.

Swissmiss said...

As far as the children getting haircuts, on their show several years ago, someone mentioned a generous hair salon had volunteered to cut all the children's hair until they turned or 6 years old. Obviously that offer has expired.

And the idea of Lunchables made me laugh because Kate traditionally hasn't seemed to feed her kids much at lunchtime.

Eve said...

I also dont think Steve is having an affair with Kate.
First off common sense tells me that nobody would want to. Lets pause here for a nationwide blech.

Second, i agree with other posters that Steve is there more to protect people from her, exactly the same way Phil Spector had bodyguards to protect people from him.
TLC can afford Steve as long as Kate keeps making them money.
Meanwhile Steve is laughing (and probably barfing) all the way to the bank.

sillyrabbit said...

Re: Kate blogging about her trials and tribulations of grocery shopping.

If Kate feels that her grocery shopping experiences are soooooooo overwhelming, how in the he** does she manage to over come the routine of getting EIGHT children, up, dressed, fed, and out the door on a school day? IMO, with Kate's self proclaimed organizational 'skills' you would think, at this point, after nine years of grocery shopping, she would have the routine down to a science. Even the bagging of the 20+ groceries and calculating their placement in the vehicle shouldnt be a big deal considering J & K for YEARS, on an given day, loaded and unloaded kids, strollers, numerous suit cases, potty chairs , etc in and out of a vehicle. You would think that after 6+ years of being a parent of two sets of multiples, a routine task such as grocery shopping would be just a 'typical day in the life of' however, Kate makes it sound as if it was her very FIRST experience grocery shopping.

To: BerksPA

Since you seem to have some clue as to what is going on in your county, do you know what happened to the pink scooter that was shown in the "Bikes and Trikes" episode from last year?

Kate is shown donating it to the Ronald McDonald house. But after reading the recap here on GWOP, it seems that there are some discrepancies with the dates - proving that reality TV is not real.

Then while searching for something else I found this tidbit about the scooter:

"The next day, Kate goes with the kids and donates her pink scooter. She and Jon stayed at a Ronald McDonald House after they had the kids. Kate signs the front fender, which doesn't make it less ugly.

Sadly, I read on a blog posting that the Ronald McDonald auction was cancelled due to a general lack of enthusiasm by the locals. The scooter is back in the Gosselin garage."

BerksPA, have you heard anything through the grapevine whatever really happened to the pink scooter? Did it go to charity or did they sell it in a yard sale?

Just curious ~

"Even the bagging of the 20+ groceries and calculating their placement in the vehicle shouldnt be a big deal considering J & K for YEARS, on an given day,'

I thought the "calculating their placement" was absolutely hysterical. I drive the same SUV as Kate, and let me tell you, you could place 50 bags of groceries in the back of that car with room left over for the grocery cart! You wouldn't believe the bulky items (including a full-size mattress), a chest of drawers, and a full-size digital piano that I've put into that vehicle!

Heck, you can get 10 bags of groceries on the front floor and passenger seat, and I'm not nearly as super-organized as she professes to be!

HAIR QUESTION:
I know her hair is a topic that makes most cringe. But something came to mind today. Didn't Kate claim to wear her hair short because it was soooooo heavy when long that it gave her sever migranes? I always thought that was a crock of "you know what"... I guess she's been magically cured, huh?

It is a REPEAT - the episode originally aired on July 2nd.

fidosmommy said...

I had just graduated high school and took a 3 week trip to Europe with 5 friends. There were 2 places I really wanted to go - England and Spain. I had studied Spanish since 2nd grade. Just as we were scheduled to fly to Madrid, 2 of the girls decided they were homesick and wanted to fly to the States the next day. I
felt deprived and angry.

The camping in Alaska may have been "rough", but it would also have been full of beauty, a time to relax and have no cameras in their faces. A vacation, kid style. They were deprived of the chance to just hang out and be kids
and soak in the atmosphere. They
might have remembered the wonders of our 48th state more than they remember their trip to DisneyWorld several years ago.

Again, the kids were robbed.

Perhaps she put in an appeal to them for an extension, the same way she begged the State of Pennsylvania to continue its financial support after the first year of the tups' births.

Be Done Now... Thanks for the hugs and hugs back to you. You also have a true understanding of what your mom did each and everyday and didn't make you feel guilty for being born in a large family. My mom always told us that she and my dad wanted a dozen kids. When number 13 was born they called us a bakers dozen. My heart breaks for those 8 little ones who have heard complaining since they were in the womb.

gotta love it! said...

I happened to have the tv on, WE tv, because my teenage girls like to watch the wedding shows. I was doing some writings, not paying attention; when I heard "Kate" and "Jon"...I look up, and the TV is on the "Raising Sextuplets" show. The husband and wife get into an argument while moving and he takes her, puts his arm around her and says: "you sound like Kate! You sound just like Kate crushing to balls of Jon!" Then the wife hides her face crying and says "why does he have to say THAT!"....The wife realised that it was a horrible INSULT! to be compared to KATE!! bwaaaaahahaha!!!

Can not believe her fame said...

You have got to be kidding me? Kate and Steveo take a little "private time" with each other in Alaska and no paps catch it? And no one says anything that she leaves her kids to "sight see" with staff?! She is a piece of rotten work! Why would anyone like this hateful, selfish woman? ....

Yes Kate did say that when she wore her hair long it gave her migraines. But apparantly, long hair that requires the inclusion and COST of hair extensions, color matching maintenance and the tugging of weekly blow outs. Not so much.

HW said...

I just finished cleaning out my fridge. Now that our son has left home, there are only three of us, yet it was such a puzzle getting all the food back in just right. So there I stood tapping my finger against my chin wondering "How would Kate do it....?" Thinking, thinking.. So I got out my paper and pencil and began calculating the puzzle that is refrigerator arrangement. Thankfully I got it all to fit for another week but...Lordy, it will be another challenge when I add fresh bread and milk. And the only extra hands I have to help me belong to a teenage daughter who would much rather be at the pool and a husband who is out earning an honest living.

Must remember to read Kate's blog so I can get through the rest of my housework this week.

go back a bit in episodes and you will find that it was Jon who loaded and un- loaded the van/SUV. K* seems to be suffering from early dementia.

Snerk said...

Fidosmom, the kids were deprived of the camping experience but not of carefree time. They were going to be filmed during all the activities for use on TLC. Maybe we were spared more toilet scenes with the outdoor bucket plumbing.

Also, I'm late but wanted to comment on someone saying Sarah Palin was getting a million per episode. That was the asking price of the production company to the major networkds. I'm sure since they had to go all the way down to TLC to sell it that the end negotiated price was much, much, much lower.

dustilies said...

First day of school here in Atlanta--always emotional for parents and kids.

There's relief that we won't be hearing "I'm bored" quite so often. And we can get haircuts at grown-up salons without kids cutting up in the waiting area. But also some sadness. I miss the more leisurely pace (and later wake-up time). And then there's the homework--abundant, vexatious, and mostly downright boring.

Anyway, when I was at the grocery store today, I wanted to get a treat for my daughters on this special day. And what to my wondering eyes should appear in the bakery section?

Colorfully frosted cupcakes labelled "Crayola Cupcakes"!

After I put them in the cart I began smiling to myself--they were a double anti-Kateism.

I insisted that each girl finish her ENTIRE cupcake before she was allowed to eat the rest of her dinner (the pasta, veggies, and chicken part).

All best to all the kids and parents who are back to school, or soon will be.

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

Regarding Steve and Kate: gotta agree that it's probably just rumor because Kate is unf--able, for lack of a better term. He knows exactly how bitchy, selfish, stupid, self-serving, and untruthful she is. He sees that monkey face with two inches of makeup up close. And he gets to listen to that screechy, horrid voice all day long. How could he possibly find her attractive? And don't get me started on the frankenbelly, tree trunk legs, etc.

Also, his demeanor around her doesn't hint at any romance or attraction. He is rather formal and standoffish with her. He gives her advice and helps her do the right thing, but that's his job, apparently. I don't see it. I mean, would ANYONE want to do her? Seriously. I don't just say that because I can't stand her.

Brummygirl said...

With talk of Kate Gosselin appearing at the Emmy Awards, I wonder why this woman continues to have her 15 minutes extended. At this rate, she has already had more than an hour!!
She is like a bad penny, turning up at every curve.
T.L.C. must have very deep pockets to keep this diva afloat but this is probably a good thing if it keeps the children out of the picture.
What I really object to, is her turning up on my t.v. channels other than T.L.C. whom I never watch.
Hmmm...I wonder if we can order a box which automatically changes channels when K8 is on!!!!! Now there's a new invention for you, Also Known As:

Kate doesnt care if she is the laughing stock (see DWTS). Her no talent clown car uterus circus act keeps HER laughing all the way to the bank.

mom2twins2 said...

About her blog - not only is it a lie but let's face it. Who has the luxury of shopping without children?
Someone with nannies.

She goes out and gets two hours to food shop - alone. That would be lovely, wouldn't it. Taking children to the food store is the challenge - not the shopping and unpacking.


I want to see her at the food store, with 8 kids in tow (or at least 6) and managing that. That is reality. That is what a SAHM does.

Don't you think that when Steve finally makes it home to his wife and kids that he sits around the patio table telling them everything he's seen from Kate? It would be better entertainment than any pizza and movie night.
I can hear the howls of laughter now, and Steve saying "Now, don't tell anybody, I could get fired!
Then what will I have to bring to the table on Whack-a-Wacko night?"

StoryLady said...

Kate is going to be on the Emmy Awards this year?
Maybe they're having a dunk-tank for charity.
Kate will sit on the platform above the little pool and real celebrities will throw tasteful and appropriate footware at the bullseye thing to dunk her.
I'd watch. But that's the only way I'd watch.

emschick1128 said...

Few in the media have taken Kate to task regarding her exploitation of her children but they are sure outraged now that she has been inappropriately invited to the Emmy awards. Every article you read is negative. To bad they are just starting to care now. One thing for sure that she will as usual make a complete ass of herself. This woman has no shame and doesn't realize she's a total laughing stock. What an insult to the real actors who have WORKED hard to be there.

Cry Me a RIver said...

Maybe Fallon is going to get an Emmy for his priceless, Emmy-worthy rendition of her Paparazzi dance which has to go down as one of the funniest moments of all time on TV.

But seriously, the way I understood it there would be clips. I don't think they would sully the actual Emmies (?) with her putrid presence ... surely they jest.

The next thing you know she will be trying to say she did that for the comedic effect ... yeah right ... just like youn bag 25 sacks of groceries.

Cry Me a RIver said...

OH and Lillian whatzername has her take up on the video and she blew it as always. She doesn't have enough background info on Jon and Khate and the kids to try to write intelligently about it. She doesn't know those kids like we do. There was a certain point where if she had stopped it would have been but as usual she was overly verbose.

Jane in California said...

Well, if Kate is anywhere near the Emmys, I'll pass on watching the entire thing. If any producer is lame enough to want her involved in any production, that tells me I have better things to do with my time than watch it.

That was BEFORE the heavy bleaching/hair extensions when her hair was thick. It's now so brittle, dry and over-bleached that the weight just isn't there!

I'd like to hear from the cashiers at the food stores as to the validity of Kate's personally (cough cough eyes roll) written blog.

Can't See Sheep said...

@StoryLady, I would love to be able to buy balls & take part at that dunk tank.


@emschick1128, I guess that's show biz. The media seems like it could care less if kate exploits her children, but kate getting an invitation to the Emmys & wow, now that's a problem, as far as they're concerned I guess. Maybe this is what it'll take, kate going attending things like the Emmy's so that the media will get upset & dig up dirt on her. Guess they need to be hit in their shallowness & vanity to get them off their butts, rather than trying to appeal to their conscience like so many of us have been doing. Guess we should have all rallied to get her invited to the Emmy's. I wonder what they'd write if she went to the Oscars.

Apparently the Whole Foods thing didn't work out as there was no name-dropping.

Captain of the Titanic said...

There is a distinction that must be made regarding the Emmys: Kate is supposed to be AT the Emmys, not ON the Emmys. She'll be in the audience (did I read front row somewhere?) She will be made fun of. The only "appearance factor" that might be relevant is her reaction to what Jimmy Fallon does.

If she laughs along....not news worthy.

If she cringes....possibly news worthy.

If she pitches a fit (and this is probably what they are hoping for)....definitely news worthy!

It seems TLC keeps putting her in situations that they have to know will push her buttons. They want the drama. Drama = attention for their show and $$$.

Once last thing: Will Kate miss her kid's first day of school if she is in L.A.?

She's come undone said...

A couple of observations: I've never really thought it was Steve. If you remember the not-so-long ago episode when it was "all about Kate" (can't remember the title) Steve was in the backseat trying to reason with her. He seemed totally fed up with her. He talked down to her with remarks such as, "Kate, people make decisions every day of their lives." He was not sympathetic or caring. I just don't think he's the one.

Having said that though, I absolutely do think Kate has a thing for a camera man or someone on the production crew. I can almost pinpoint the time when she started flirting with someone just out of our view and it has not stopped. She also, from time to time, seeks validation from this person ("I am organized, aren't I.") or some such garbage. There is definitely "someone".

Um, doesn't Hannah (who's the only one in the family with hair down to her derrière) get migraines? Wasn't that the handy excuse they used to justify her getting her own room at the McMansion? Another fabrication to add to the list.

NT said...

If Kate is to be on the Emmy's in person,I'll bet that she will be in LA for at least a week before because that is when all the freebies start. I'm sure Kate will be first in line and I'm sure she will take more than she should. And I'm sure it will be only things for her and not for her kids. I wonder how much the kids will have to pay for her EMMY wardrobe.

Vanessa said...

What gets me if all this Emmy stuff is leaked, that Jimmy Fallon will make jokes at Kate's expense etc., where is the "surprise" or "shock" value? Her highness and her cronies probably have to "OK" the material or she won't accept the invitation.
What she needs is a Kanye West scene, only in this case, whoever is drunk enough or has the ba!!s to grab the mic and REALLY lay in on her would get a standing ovation!

Brummygirl said...

Do any of you remember when I joked way back, that Kate was angling for her Hollywood Star and Red Carpet treatment?....well...she's gradually getting there (she thinks). Personally, I think she will just be part of the audience, Could you just imagine her as a presenter.
"Well ummmmm.....I'd like to ummmm ..present the next award for best 'actrish' but I do not see my name on the card...(cackles away)...silence from the audience except for Baby Mama who sold all her copies of Kate's books to her minions to be there.
"You go Kate" B.M. shouts.
"Yes Kate" shouts a heckler from the audience...JUST GO!!"
The green evil eye slants, as she fiddles with her earpiece.
"Well, I do deserve to be here, I am an outstandish author, a star of t.v. and I also lay on bed rest for 30 weeks to produce my wonderful children. I had a marriage which went wrongish so I have to earn a living (tears begin to flow) I do it all for my kids!!"
As she twists the card in her hands and the compere tries to gently move her off stage, B.M. roars down the aisle, her copycat hairstyle flying in the wind, to help her beloved Idol, but is stopped by two bodyguards. Any guess who the one is? "Hmmm" he thinks "this must be what I am actually here for" as he ditches the purse.
Next day Kate's P.R. geniuses advertise that it was all an intended comedy act and apologised for the necessity of having to piece the award card together on public t.v.
The receiving award actress "was NOT AMUSED!"

hayden said...

Kate reminds me of the proverbial "easy" girl at high school. Getting passed around for everybody to get their kicks from her. Except in this case she's getting passed around from network to network for a ratings grab, based on her status as one of America's most despised women. And sadly, even though she's the mother of 8 young children, she seems to be ok with this as long as she's getting paid. When she made made her deal with the Devil apparently he convinced her that having a moral compass is for stupid, little people and to always go for the money.

The Emmy ratings have been dismal the last few years, although last year with Neil Patrick Harris as host they perked up. Instead of following the same formula of finding a great host and making sure he's given great material, Kate "The Trainwreck" Gosselin is brought in as a cheap stunt to entice viewers. Which is sort what television as a whole has been reduced to. Actual written shows, with actors who have worked hard to acheive their success seem to be a thing of the past. Replaced with bargain bin cost reality shows "starring" one brainless, morally deficient twit after another.

bigdifference said...

Is she going to be part of the show, was she invited, will she be on the red carpet?
Or did TLC simply purchase a ticket for her and will make a show documenting her dress and makeup prearations and maybe get some footage of her meeting some random stars.

So is TLC fazing out Ms. Nasty Wonky eye, they had commercial out with new show called "Sister Wives" Ewwww.

I'm tired of hearing about this self serving witch, this trip even though it's with the Palins would have been very good survival experience for the kids. Things can happen, just learning not to panic and adjust would have been very beneficial for these kids. If her house had been flooded, they would all be standing in their own toilet water, what is she going to do, keep dialing 911 until someone comes and rescue them, Get a clue woman!

Button Button said...

waaah! I can't pay my bills said...
Regarding Steve and Kate: gotta agree that it's probably just rumor because Kate is unf--able, for lack of a better term. He knows exactly how bitchy, selfish, stupid, self-serving, and untruthful she is. He sees that monkey face with two inches of makeup up close. And he gets to listen to that screechy, horrid voice all day long. How could he possibly find her attractive? And don't get me started on the frankenbelly, tree trunk legs, etc.

Also, his demeanor around her doesn't hint at any romance or attraction. He is rather formal and standoffish with her. He gives her advice and helps her do the right thing, but that's his job, apparently. I don't see it. I mean, would ANYONE want to do her? Seriously. I don't just say that because I can't stand her.

I absolutely agree! He has seen her at her worst. Nope, don't think there is any hanky panky going on. Never have.

tx mom said...

Hey guys, don't forget, some time ago (might have been before the divorce) that Steve and Kate were seen holding hands up north somewhere. Seems that is was reported a reputable radio host witnessed the event.
I think he has been banging her for a few years...

Catherine said...

The thing about selling your soul to the devil is that eventually payment is expected. I don't see a good ending to this KG mess.

I was going to say I don't see a happy ending, but when has she ever been happy anyway? Her soul is as empty as her eyes.

Free the Gosselin children.

Gabby2 said...

Biggest tell on Katie and Steve is that she completely started changing she appearance when she started traveling with Steve. And Jon caught on early.

Steve gets a paycheck with benefits and Katie is probably still on her best behavior with him because she knows he could walk at anytime and she's still can't get him to leave his wife.

They both get their forbidden hot sex.

tx mom said...

I guess what really bugs me about this shrew, is that she is just such a 'user'.
Her husband was unemployed. So what does she do? With no insurance, she wants ANOTHER child..she goes for infertility treatments, no less!
Then, after having the litter, the state of PA picks up the tab, and a yr nurse to boot. THEN, she whines that she can't take care of the litter all by her little special ol' self.
She was ungrateful about the home remodel, the used cribs and clothing...yet, neither was employed!! THEN, she barks about 'organic', it is the 'best' for her family...Well, if I was depending on family, donors, friends, et al, to pay all my bills, I sure wouldn't demand pricey special food!! I bet the people that donated the money didn't give their families organic!! geesh!
This woman is all about her, all the time. She expects a free ride for everything. Free surgeries, food, living expenses, roof jewelry, clothing, cars, vacations, to name a few...she wants everything free, and doesn't want to earn it. She is the model for a welfare whore.

Jane in CA said...

I agree with those that don't think there is any hanky-panky going on between Steve and Kate. I think it's more a mutually satisfying arrangement: Steve gets paid a ton of money to follow Kate around, open car doors, stop fans from coming too close, carrying her purse when needed, and trying to manage her. If she's on mood stablizing meds, he'd be the one doling it out to her. Yes, he has to listen to her blather on and on, but I think she conks out early most nights, and she's not a morning person, so he really only has to deal with her from 10:00 a.m. to around 9:00 p.m.

In return, Kate gets to feel important. She has a buffer between her and the rest of the world. She gets to order a handsome, strong looking man around. She has a shoulder to cry on, even if it's not a very sympathetic one. In her mind, he's got her back.

Personally, I think Steve-O has the type of street smarts that he's got some damaging documentation about Kate's real nature and behaviors. I foresee a big pay-out in his future when he and TLC finally part ways.

What I don't see is any chemistry between the two of them. They share some striking similarities: cold, calculating, humorless. I think Neild's wife knows the score, and that's why she goes along with the whole situation. They are probably building up a hefty nest egg for their retirement on the one job alone.

fidosmommy said...

Re: free things for Kate.

There is one consolation for the rest of us pay-for-it-yourselfers.

Kate has to declare all this good stuff as taxable income. It's not as big a bite as paying for all this herself, but nothing is really free, is it? Even if TLC foots the bill, or Dr. Glassman foot the bill or Gymboree or Ann
Taylor or whatever, it is still, to my knowledge, taxable.

The only things that probably are not taxable are the things like donated second-hand cribs, baby clothes, etc. And anything that a friend simply bought and gave to her, like, say, a new bottle warmer as a gift. I don't know about the free haircuts for the kids, since they were part of TLC programming once or twice.

It is possible that TLC compensates Kate with enough cash to pay the taxes, but then that
compensation would be additional income to report....and on it goes.

@Brummygirl, LOL! Loved your take of kate at the Emmys.

@She's come undone, I agree there's someone. I waffle between it being Steve & not being Steve, I've heard a lot of good arguments for both on here & elsewhere, but there is, as you say, definitely someone.

@tx mom, that is the problem, she has whined & whined for only the best & there are actually people out there dumb enough to give it to her, rather than telling her to get off her butt & get it for herself. It's like if she whimpers long enough & behaves like a spoilt child, some idiot will hand it to her, rather than ignoring her like they should be doing. It's six years later & people are still doing this. kate needs a hand up, not a hand out.

common sense does not exist in Gosselinland, because if it did then she wouldn't have gone for just one more child in the first place because that's not something you do when you're UNEMPLOYED & there's no health insurance.

Monster Mommy said...

I'm a little late... but I absolutely LOVE all of the Adrian Monk comments and references, on this thread. (Nature is dirty... That's why we RV now.) Bring back our show, USA!

Cracks me up to no end, that "can do" Kate - really can't do a darned thing.

CAN'T be an appreciative family member, loving mother, doting wife, truth-teller, pet owner, cook/baker, responsible driver (hello hit-and-run "victim!")... nurse with any bedside manner, good dancer, swimmer, clothing stylist, gratuity "tipper"- and now we know she is a bad camper as well? What is Kate capable of doing, besides melting down in front of the camera? Oh yeah, EXPLOITING, GRIFTING and GREED. She has those three talents down pat.

No Worry, Beef Curry said...

Yes, Gabby2...

Kate does not know the ole' golden rule. Men rarely leave their wives and family, unless they are going to something far greater. In my mind (and opinion)... Kate is nowhere near the level of Gina Neild, or any other average real woman. Instead, she's one crazy, fake hot mess, who can't function on her own to save her life. If Steve wants to be with 'Miss Thing', during his golden years, I'd be very surprised. Her appearance did change-- drastically. Like a tween, turned school-yard whore. Just because a guy sleeps with you once or twice, doesn't mean he's in love with you, silly!

It's way past time to give up, Kate. Game over.

Catherine said...

Hey fidosmommy, you have a really good point about Kate paying taxes on all her freebies. I know someone as twisted and narcissistic as Kate, and trust me, they don't think the rules aply to them. It's occured to me more than once that, like Al Capone, her karma may come in the form of an IRS audit. Can you imagine what that shrew would look like after a few months in prison? I can dream...

Michelle said...

OMG! I just got my TV Guide and it has the top earners on TV listed. Kate Gosselin is listed at $250,000 per episode! WTF! To put it in perspective, Patrick Dempsey on Grey's Anatomy makes the same. Julianna Marguiles makes $175,000 per episode for The Good Wife.

Again, WTF!

sillyrabbit said...

How long does Kate think her 'reality tv' persona gig is going to last when 'reality tv' personalities come a dime a dozen and the likes of Snookie and the Situation are her biggest career threats?

Sounds like TV Guide is talking through their hats again. No one gets that kind of pay increase, not even Kate. Remember all those people who just knew Kate and Jon were getting $75K an episode and they were getting $22.4K or so?

PA Mom Knows:

******

Because her younger children are going into full time K or 1st grade and her older children are in 4th grade is it now? Or 5th? Regardless, they are all still at an age where having your mom or dad take you to the bus your first day is important. For a woman who claims to do everything for her children she should get that concept. If Kate won't be there, I hope Jon will.

Nova said...

Seen today on 'Television Without Pity':

"Kate Gosselin will be attempting to be funny with Jimmy Fallon during a segment at the beginning of the primetime Emmys telecast. There is nothing funny about that statement, but I'm going to assume the person who conjured up this idea is the same one who thought it'd be great for her to do that "Paparazzi" dance on Dancing With the Stars. Spare us all the pain, please."

So if this is correct, she will not just be sitting in the audience, but will actually appear on the telecast in front of the cameras. Whoever thought of this should be forced to be trapped for 24 hours with Khate in an elevator.

I find it hard to believe that Kate Gosselin is being paid 250K PER episode. Maybe the total paid per episode in not limited to the monetary compensation but also includes additional perks that are featured during an episode, ie vacation, home improvements, various compensations etc.. Additionally, isnt a percentage of earnings to be set aside in trust for each of the children? How much of the $250K is to be allocated to the Jon Gosselin 'hush money' account.

I think you know she meant, "Would Kate miss sending the kids off for their first day of school"...which is a BIG deal to most parents, and most parents of elementary aged kids put that at the top of their priority list. Whether it's taking them to school yourself or driving them to the bus stop, it's a big deal to take pictures and wave goodbye....not have the nannies do it so you can go play celebrity in Hollywood.

On the other hand, perhaps it will give Jon the opportunity to be there on their first day of school instead of Kate. The kids would rather have him anyway.

silimom said...

Just read how Kate will be on the Emmy's with Jimmy Fallon. C'mon everyone - they're going to spoof her Paparrazi dance from DWTS.

Of course! My comment was a tongue-in-cheek. Kate doesn't consider the school days to be of any importance, so my question was...why would this day be any different? She might show up at the bus stop for a photo op, but Kate going to school with her kids for the first day? LOL!

Betcha he will be there, either at school or the bus stop. He supports his kids in all of their school activities.

Full-time K, and 4th grade.

dustilies said...

As of January 2010, tv guide was reporting that J and K got 75,000 per episode "before they split up." So either tv guide is way off, or Jon was confabulating when he said that the family got 25,000 per episode during their last year of the show.

It doesn't seem possible that K has the audience to justify a 250,000/episode salary. The stars of Law and Order SVU and Desperate Housewives each earn 400,000 per episode, according to tv guide. But Jon Hamm of Madmen (huge critical success, but on the smaller AMC cable channel) apparently gets a relatively modest 75,000 per episode.

Another way to think of it is this. In the last seasons of the Sopranos, James Gandolfini was getting 1 million per episode. Is he only four times as valuable as Kate? Or, do four hand-flapping Kates equal one Tony Soprano? I think not!

Wonder where tv guide gets its info--networks? agents? Could TLC want to puff up the numbers to make themselves and Kate look like Hollywood players?

Hippie Chick said...

We all know she's gonna blow it at the Emmy's. Let's all think back to her "stunning" performance on The View, or Leno, Or DWTS for that matter. Khate is no good on live TV. She is going to trip over her words, she'll probably balk at her cue cards "Oh, I'M not saying THAT!", and make a complete and total ass out of herself. She will be a bucket of nerves, surrounded by real, humbled celebrities who despise the woman for selling out her children.

These are stars who try & duck the paps. They don't put their kids front & center. I am sure they don't have much of an appreciation for Kate at all, & I can only assume that Kate will get laughed all the way out the door on Emmy night. She will go home crying into her boxed wine. Kate is doing exactly the opposite of what she should be doing. I really think this will be a bad move. And thinking of her trying to mingle with the celebrities? The only one who'll want anything to do with her is Kathy Griffin, so she can have material for her stand-up! With Kate's manners, weird verbal skills and overall false sense of entitlement, she is definitely out of her league at the Emmys.

michelle said...

Keep closing those doors Katie. Pretty soon there won't be anymore to close.

Just think...soon she will have pre-teens. Good gravy...those poor girls!

Why is Mommy Orange? said...

So Kate's still a disgusting lying pig, who exploits her kids for cash and freebies then? Word has it, even her own kids dread rolling up the old driveway, like 'red tagged' dogs. Yep... chew on that, lurking Sheeple.

BTW- I never had to swallow a drop of that can of fake and bake... as my predictions all came true! And where's the New Sheriff? It's been over a week, and no sign of her anywhere... hmm. Maybe the nut house took her away before we had the pleasure, of really feeling her wrath. Maybe it was Lindsay? (She sure spelled like her.) Nah.

Kate's Nemesis said...

Six of the Gosselin children will be seven years old, next year in Kindergarten class. Undoubtedly, with a room-full of kids that are younger, and many (in said school), way beyond their years. With that hectic TLC filming schedule, here's to hoping they make it outta' there by age 20. It may leave room for a college education, before they have children of their own.

Oh my. Farm fresh Katie Kreider at the Emmys with the likes of George Clooney, et al? I'm taking votes on who she should take as her date to this celebrity filled gala event.

B.) Michael Lohan (or better yet, Dina "The-Great- White-Oprah" Lohan)

C.) MTV's Jersey Shore "Snooki"

D.) Pennsylvania's favorite Purse-Boy, Steve Neild

My bet is on the "D-List"... and I don't mean Kathy Griffin's reality show. What a laughing stock she has become. If she wants to be the joke that everyone in Hollywood gets but Kate, so be it.

Or there was the time a lady dumped her food all over her table, poured her iced tea on top of it, and threw six cents at me because I didn't fill her nearly full tea glass instead of serving food to the table next to her. I could go on. And on. The way "normal" people behave is often beyond disgusting and frankly, its a wonder he didn't lose it sooner.

I'm a reality television producer now. So on a regular basis I get to get even with the schmucks of the world by exposing their...schmuckiness.

How many times have we remarked here that producers at Figure8/TLC don't really like Kate?

Dre said...

Personally, I think Steve-O has the type of street smarts that he's got some damaging documentation about Kate's real nature and behaviors. I foresee a big pay-out in his future when he and TLC finally part ways.

===============================

Neild's ability to earn a living depends on his ability to keep his mouth shut. There's no way he would ever "spill the beans" while he is still working as a professional.

Sometimes people in his line of work publish memoirs and tell tales, but only after they retire. To do so earlier would be the equivalent of committing professional suicide.

Regarding his Gosselin duties? All anyone who might hire him is seeing is that he keeps his cool and gets the job done.

This absurd assignment only gives him cred in his professional life. Along with admiration and awe for having survived years with a harridan who apparently lacks any redeeming qualities.

All the rest of the speculation about him and her and his job, purse-toting and all, is irrelevant in the world in which he works. He's paid a fantastic salary to be a minder/assistant/protector; it's what he does for a living.

I'd like to hear from the cashiers at the food stores as to the validity of Kate's personally (cough cough eyes roll) written blog


I live in Harrisburg & shop at the local Giant. I was talking to a cashier as I was checking out one day. We got to talking about Kate & our extreme dislike of her.

Although we didn't discuss her so-called blog, she did tell me that the manager of our store knew the manager at Kate's Giant store,who says she's a total bitch.

No real surprises there, right?

I have a theory on the Alaskan camping meltdown.
Sure she won't do dirty work but I think there is more behind it than refusing to use a pot as a pot.
I think Sarah Palin is such a well known, nice, hands on mother, and real lady that she was getting all the attention. She was doing what she was suppose to be doing and with a great attitude.
Think about it. If you are the camera crew and producers who do you talk and give glowing attention to?
A nice, funny, friendly, famous ex governor or a screaming, self absorbed, mean shrew non-mother of 8?
Think about it!

Elvira said...

No Kate in NY shopping, no mani-pedi or tanning, no grocery store or Target trips, or at least Radaronline has spared us if they have occurred. Did TLC or Julie May put Kate in timeout after the disastrous non-camping trip? Perhaps everyone else is getting as tired of Kate as some of us have been for months and months. Whatever it is it's a great relief to have start disappearing from the tabloids and the entertainment sites. I think ET may have already forgotten she exists. The flavor of the moment seems to be moving on.

Photos of Kate parking lot prancing while getting her spray tan, mani/pedi, stock piling groceries will magically 're appear' just about the time the media begins their pre Emmy show hype.

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

I think he's been committing the equivalent of professional suicide from very nearly the first day he took his current assignment. Seriously, he must be the butt of jokes by real security professionals, as he walks around behind Kate, sometimes holding her purse or her camera, doing double duty as nanny at times.

Nield probably has had to sign a confidentiality agreement, but he looks like the sort of character who would play dirty if he felt it necessary. No scruples.

SafetyTrain said...

MaryB, while I don't share such a high opinion of Sarah Palin myself, I definitely think you're on to something here. Kate's entourage/crew, who probably go to the ends of the earth to make her happy, could very well have been giving the Palins more attention on the trip - which in turn got Kate's pants in a bunch. She's a woman who doesn't share the spotlight with anyone. I think if Jesus himself made a reappearance here on earth, Kate would throw a fit if it cut into her spotlight. Perhaps Steve was spending a little too much time talking to Sarah?

Sharla said...

No ratings came out for the rehashed repeats last week. Even though TLC billed them as new, they were recognized by the industry as reruns.

Poor Kids said...

This is the most horrible thing I've ever witnessed. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TLWZH91VYY

Jon brought the kids home and they were hysterical, not wanting him to leave. Why is he forced to wait at the gate until Kate or the nanny comes down? Kate says that she wants the best for her kids. Is making them wait at the gate and allowing the paps access to that kind of scene really the best for them?

Late to the Party said...

We talked about the drop off hysteria in last week's free discussion.

Ladylou said...

My yahoo page keeps me informed about where Kate will be next and what she'll be doing. I keep telling it "I DON'T WANT TO KNOW!!!"
I am doing nicely without hearing about her or seeing her face everywhere I turn. My Yahoo page has yet to get that message.

Now it seems "our celebrity" will be going to the Emmy's.
Just think 10 short years ago Khate was just another regular Joe... she went to movies and saw Julia Roberts and Sandra Bullock on the big screen just like us. I know they are real people but I will never rub elbows with them.

Khate on the other hand is right there in their circle. She is known in every home by just her first name.
It is pointless to believe she will ever be just an everyday person again. Somehow the entertainment industry keeps defining her as someone worthy of our devotion.

I do not see the attraction.. I know I am not alone as I read it here all the time. I just shake my head now in disbelieve of how far this witch has gotten in 10 years and can only imagine how much farther she will get in another 10 years. Makes me sick to think about.

IMO, Kate could care less about Sarah Palin; their meeting was nothing more than a TLC 'business arrangement'. Trust. Kate isn't losing any sleep over what went down in Alaska; Kate got a pay check and TLC will get their ratings.

Last year TLC was trying to get Kart her own Emmy nomination. That didn't pan out, thank goodness, there is some sense in this world. Does anyone actually think that the A listers even KNOW who Kart is? Kart's brand is nothing, all her "deals" fell flat, she's got nada. Kart's fifteen minutes is ticking away. Heads are going to roll at TLC, because their "investment" is turning into a Bernie Madhoff deal, all fake, and being found out to be fake.

****************************
I posted a long time ago, asking what drives the driven?
Each time we think K8G's fifteen minutes are up, a new curve appears. It takes a very driven person to do what K8 has done.
Are we the silly ones who think that she will go away soon?
I am beginning to doubt we will ever see the end of this totally focused fame seeker.
If it is just her, then I don't care what she does, what she is in, as long as the children are left out of it.
That brings up another point, will the children ever be left out of it? I think not, it is way too late to think they will meld into obscurity whilst their fame crazed mother continues to seek the limelight.
Even though she is doing her best to look younger, the fact is she is 35 years of age. Without a solid background of music, acting etc., how long can she continue? Well rounded stars are sometimes past their *sell by dates* at this age and she has just begun.
Will it be round after round of facelifts, tanning, liposuction etc. which keeps her in the running physically or is it her crazed desire to be a celebrity.
What exactly does she intend being other than one of the most hated women at the present time, in America.
Is she oblivious to what people think of her? I would personally be mortified if even one person thought that about me.
I do not think she cares, she is so focused on her goal, to be a celebrity.
If I wasn't so sure that she is basically uneducated and clueless in a lot of areas, I would be concerned to what level she would go. Thank goodness it is not politics.
Imagine having to wake up each morning plotting a route, instead of just *being*.
So, in answer to your question, who knows where she will be in ten years, probably very rich but maybe lonely.

Miranda said...

A thought...

I don't think there's anything going on between Purse Boy & Ingrate Kate. My guess is that TLC realized a long time ago that Kate was too self-aborbed and infantile to be trusted to take responsibility for meeting her professional (cough) obligations and that if they were going to milk that cash cow dry they'd have to hire a babysitter -- somebody to be with her all the time and who would be strong enough to manage her constant hysterics, meltdowns & tantrums and make sure she showed up wherever TLC needed her to be at any given time/day.

I think TLC then sold this plan to less-than-bright Kate by appealing to her deranged ego -- "You're such a big, important celebrity now that you have to have a personal bodyguard, just like the President!" -- and presenting her with a handsome, manly man whom Kate might be inspired to try and please.

Meanwhile, Steve is raking in the money (of which I think he deserves every cent) and gaining a solid reputation as a professional who can put up with anybody!

Skywatcher said...

Carezee,

I am just now getting caught up on the posts and saw that your parents are celebrating their 60th anniversary. Congratulations to them and for them showing you and your siblings that $$$ doesn't buy happiness, but a stable, healthy and respectable child and future adult. Congrats to you and your family!

Skywatcher said...

StoryLady,

I too was (am) a fan of Monk and I like your 'Monk' lines that fans all know. You are correct, "It is a jungle out there" and I worry for the day Khate finds that out and the children are on the receiving end. I hope and pray by then a loving, caring family member has custody of those children and Khate can only visit with supervision. God bless those sweet children.

tv blues said...

is she going to be on live, or is she part of the funny pre-recorded video clips that make up the opening act and later there will be a brief shot of her in the crowd smiling.

tv today is more about sponsership, hype , marketing and branding and staging.
basically you and your image are manipulated and used until you are discarded.

fidosmommy said...

As Kate's shrill voice breaks the
crystal, all of us will be asking,
"Is it live, or is it Memorex?"

Apologies to those too young to remember those TV ads.....

I know that kate has all the money she will ever need,has been made-over to look younger, surgery to look thinner, best quality hair extensions,perfect white teeth,all the beautiful clothes she ever wants,the shoes,the jewels,the designer handbags,a huge house that was re-done the way she wanted,fancy SUV,all of the material things that the rest of us may wish we also had from time to time-but I think that there are many times when kate crys herself to sleep at night,all alone. I bet she is so sad, so confused, so lost.I bet there are times when she wishes she could go back in time, so she could start over again.kate has it all, yet she has nothing.kate is surrounded by people,but is very alone.I bet she wishes to have her parents to be part of her life,and have a close relationship with her siblings.I bet she wishes she was somebodies favorite Auntie kate.I bet she wishes she still wore a gold wedding band,that told everyone that she was someone's true love,someone's wife.I bet she wishes she had her Jon back, to walk by her side.I bet she wishes she could be the kind of mother that her kids deserve,a mother who cared more about loving them,than making money off of them.Do I ever wish I had kate's money? Maybe,sometimes,I wish I did. Then again, no,I would not want that money,if it came with that kind of sad life.Yes,we all laugh at kate,run down her clothes,fake tans,fake hair,fake boobs,body guard who carries her designer purses.But would we cry for kate,if we knew that she cried,too?

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

a good friend of mine wrote this on her radio ministry newsletter.

my family was recently on a camping trip on beautiful Lake so and so and my daughter, Anna Claire wanted me to lay down with her. I had my arm around her. She said, "I feel so safe in your arms." A mother's love to her child is a demonstration of God's love to us.

i read this and thought about my own 3 boys and then i thought of kate. she has treated those kids all of them so horribly they will never go to her and sit beside her and kate wrap her arm around them and then the child would say, i feel so safe in your arms.

she did it to herself, by herself and for herself.

God bless the Gosselin 8.

i hope she royally messes up that it becomes the new thing to talk about. she curses all the time, maybe she will drop some bombs. haha

Elvira said...

Kate doesn't cry over those things so no I don't have sympathy for her. She has too much narcissism to notice other people or the need for true human relationships in her life. She only wants people for how she can use them or how the relate to her. That's why she can dispose of them so easily. Odd are she'll live her whole life without figuring it out.

Carezee said...

Skywatcher

Thank you for your kind words. I just wanted to show it can be done with out having to make millions and still having a happy family.

StoryLady said...

Speaking of Monk, I have thought of this story so many times when Kate's sense of 'celebrity' surfaces.
Years ago,I read that Tony Shalhoub would be appearing at a local video store that night to talk about Monk and autograph DVDs of his movies.
I arrived at this dumpy little video store in a bad part of LA. Mr. Shalhoub was sitting in a metal folding chair in the back of the room with a semi-circle of metal folding chairs around him. There weren't more than 15 people there.
Clearly he was doing this for his friend, who owned the store. The event was supposed to last from 7:00 to 8:00. We were all there until almost 10:00, because Mr. Shalhoub was so gracious; answering every single question as if it were the best question he'd ever heard, and always thanking the person who asked it, taking pictures with everybody, autographing everything anybody handed him with a smile,and ASKING EACH PERSON ABOUT THEMSELVES!!!
No bodyguard, no sense of entitlement, just a gracious human being. HE thanked US for taking the time to come see him. He wasn't phoney at all.
He walked with everybody out to our cars, got in his own car, and waved goodbye as he drove himself home.
This is how a real celebrity behaves. Kate could never in a million years stand in his shadow. That's one of the reasons this Emmy thing frosts me so.
Sorry for rambling, but the contrast is so amazing. You'll thank me later.

======
Kate's a narcissist, and what you describe as "betting" she wishes, such as having Jon and her wedding ring back, having her family in her life, simply doesn't fit the M.O. of a classic narcissist. Not in a million years do I think that she wishes for any of those things.

Vanessa said...

I like your story "Storylady" :)
Yes, of course Kate would never be this gracious. In all honesty, even if she had never become the First Ocotmom and become this d-list celebrity, she would still have alienated her family, friends,
anyone who was sincerly trying to help her. You can still be a "diva" without being known outside your small little town. She already had a reputation in her own community, place of work, and within her family.

momof3kidsand3dogs said...

In regards to Kate and Sarah Palin, one has to wonder if Kate even knew who Sarah Palin was before this contrived meeting. Kate is so out of touch with reality and so focused on herself. Did she even know that Sarah was the vice presidential candidate in the last presidential election or does she just think she is the next big reality star on TLC. I can visualize TLC telling her about the trip to Alaska to "meet" Sarah Palin and Kate saying "Sarah who?" They probably had to brief her on all the "sensitive" subjects surrounding Sarah... unwed daughter who is a teen mom, special needs child, etc. because Kate has no clue.

Ratings said...

For the person who asked about the ratings: When the first 2 shows came out in June there were 3.4 million people watching. For the next two, the rating took a 33% dive down to 2.2.

I want to see it below a million.

Captain of the Titanic said...

"According to Eonline.com, which first broke the news, Gosselin will display her not-so-serious side at the very beginning of the show with Emmys host Jimmy Fallon -- and she'll be getting close to some of TV's biggest names"

I've got a theory on what Kate's participation will be on the Emmys, based on the very last part of that news blurb. I'll bet they'll have one of those films where the images are digitally altered to include Kate rushing to meet various stars. Maybe showing her standing shoulder to shoulder with them, like she did with Donald Trump. Fallon may plan to make fun of her attempts to be a celebrity by being on every talk show she possibly can.

Maybe we'll see her next to Queen Elizabeth, or George Clooney, or inserted into the middle of some big name movie. So she won't be an ACTUAL participant, just her captured previous appearances as they are merged with other celebrity appearances.

Lorrie said...

Miranda, I've often thought the exact same thing. Steve wasn't hired to be a bodyguard (unbeknownst to Kate, naturally.) He was probably told by the bigwigs at TLC to keep their little money-maker in line, to make sure she doesn't make a COMPLETE moron of herself out in public, and to generally protect fans from HER and her atrocious attitude.

Obviously Kate was never told this. TLC probably just fed her swelling ego by passing Steve off as her "bodyguard". Meanwhile, Kate is too unintelligent to question why someone who is supposedly being paid buckets of money to protect her shows up to "work" in flip flops.

Pony said...

"But would we cry for kate,if we knew that she cried,too?"

Not I. Kate brought all of this on herself; she had family members telling her she was making mistakes. She's an adult, not a child. If she in fact does cry at night, wishing she had all those things back in her life, she can take action. She can call everyone she has pushed away and apologize. She can ask them to forgive her. And then she can prove her sincerity by changing her behavior. Unfortunately, nothing I've seen from her leads me to believe she thinks anything wrong is her fault. It's always the fault of someone else. And as long as she believes that, she'll continue to be her narcissistic self.

Sidney said...

Anastasia, your writing of what Kate may be crying for just doesn't sync with Kate.

She doesn't see the world the way others see theirs.

She doesn't want her parents close to her life, nor her ex, nor the kids, especially since they are all growing into human beings who are in her way.

Kate is NOT a normal human being. She wants money and all that goes with it.

If she cries herself to sleep at night, its not because of everything she has let slip through her fingers. She may cry for other things, but not for those things most humans need.

She is the Queen of Mean, and she doesn't even mind that label, as long as it keeps the money rolling in.

As long as she stays in the public, and brings in the ratings "for whatever reason" she is quite contended with her lonely, miserable, well-paid-for life.

___________________________________
Exactly right. A true narcissist (and dare I go so far as to say Sociopath), needs to play the constant martyr, therefore actually enjoys and thrives on playing the role of victim. Reconciliation on any level doesn't meet their need therefore that's not what they desire. (Coming from the daughter of a textbook sociopath, I know this topic well.)

A friend of mine appeared in one of the episodes. He reported the same thing you just did. "Monk" is kind and gracious...all of the things a "real" celebrity should be, and Kate clearly is not.

I believe that the Kart is crying all right. Crying and having a temper tantrum that she is not receiving the attention and perks she believes that she deserves. After all, she is a STAR! She craves attention, and she will go through whatever means to attain it.

School starts for the tups on August 26. There's no choice to make, unless she has to show up early at the Emmys.

sillyrabbit said...

So Kate Gosselin will display her 'no so serious' side at the Emmy's. As opposed to her typical self entitled, woe is me, I have EIGHT, cout 'em 8 kids, what is my talent again?, child exploiting, high road taker, contract honorer, shrewish, deny any and all cosmetic surgery side? So in other words Kate is going to be the JOKE that is is, has been, and always will be!!
