I hope some of you saw the new show Fashion Police with Joan Rivers on Friday night (on E! after The Soup).

They did a segment called "Starlet or Streetwalker" and up popped a photo of little miss thang - Kate is her finest outfit to date - the one with the zebra skin tight top, too short black shiny shorts and black hooker heels. Three of the four panelists choose "Streetwalker" - HAHAHA!

Then Joan Rivers said, oh please, Kate needs to go back to her trailer and parent her 8 children. She also suggested that they should change the segment to "Starlets, Streetwalkers or Kate Gosselin"!

I haven't laughed so hard in a long time - Joan really has her number!

Tami said...
It would be nice if she COULD play nice and make a schedule with Jon where one kid could stay with her and be an "only" child and then trade off and one stay with Jon to be the "only" child. They could just keep doing this as long as the kids like it. Both parents could have kids at all times. Why do they always have to be a group? At least some of the time they might prefer to see what it's like not to be.

*******

Tami, that's a wonderful suggestion, IMO. I wish both Kate and Jon were mature enough to put their differences aside and do what is best for the kids. Hope springs eternal.

Donna said...

I saw it SuzyQ!! Joan really knows the real deal with Kate. I bet Joan and Kathy Griffin have a great time together in private laughing at Kate.

I would love to hear the "truth" from Whoppi or Anderson Cooper. . . .

ChurchMouse said...

You know, Ms. Gosselin is a rather stupid woman. At some point the children, who are thinking, breathing human beings, not wind-up dolls to march along in matchy-matchy clothes for the cameras, will start to speak out.

And she won't be able to control them. What will she do then?

ihatefrogs said...

Kate gloating on Regis and Kelly about how she waits the 'call' from one or several of children while at their father's home asking to come home because they prefer to be at the Konpound and with HER did NOT make her appear to be the 'preferred' or better parent but an insensitive, juvenile, and totally self serving idiot!! IMO, how the Gosselin children are dealing (or not) with such an emotionally charged and senstive issue as 'visitation' is one that SHOULD be managed and dealt with in PRIVATE ! Kate taking the issue to a national tv platform as the means to pursue HER own personal agenda is wrong on so many levels.

chesterctymom said...

I noticed that Khatie Krieder didn't list the kids friends as a reason for wanting to stay at the orphanage...that speakes volumes...

Betty Boop said...

Spot on!

http://www.goodenoughmother.com/2010/09/the-kate-hate-continues/

She's run her mouth a few too many times now. The world at large is catching on.

Tami said...

There are negative comments all over the net about Kate slamming Jon yet again. It is backfiring big time. And how petty to say they just want to be home with their toys. How shallow. If that were the case, pack up some toys (she would not since she is so selfish, yet she brought an entire kitchen to NC the first time!) OR let the kids stay home and Jon stay in his apartment! THey want to see him, not their toys. She is so lame. It was her idea to move their visitation in the first place. Let's see how she spins it next time they are caught returning the kids out in the street..and there are no single kids returning due to not liking Jon and all the kids are wailing not to leave him!

Hambone said...

I sure hope this is a Hot Topic on The View on Monday, because Whoopi and Joy will rip Kate a new one about this.

Only stupid old Sherri will defend Kate because she bashes her son's father on tv all the time herself.

The ladies at The View need to gently remind Kelly Ripa to not allow bashing unless the other person can defend themself, since she was so upset that time they bashed her about Clay Aiken and she wasn't there to defend herself. Kelly was being a little hypocritical yesterday.

Anne said...

Kate is truly her own worst enemy and thanks to what I believe is some form of mental illness, she will never see that. It is so sad and scary that she is a mother to 8 children. I can't imagine the emotional damage being inflicted upon those kids.

No Shame in her Game said...

I just read the new scans for Khatan. She is all over the tabloids but not in a good way. Finally, people are finding out what we have known all along--Khate Gosseling is a monster.

Sidney said...

Aren't we loving this!

I wish she would do the "rounds" and not change her tune AT ALL.

Keep on shoveling, Kate. That grave is getting deeper and deeper.

Bwahahahaha Bwahahahah!

Nothing Should Surprise Us... said...

Can you people not see Kate that was "attacked," "pestered," and "badgered" by Anderson and Kelley?

How could they abuse her that way?

And they even used their cue cards, so it was well planned before she even made her appearance on R&K.

If you didn't realize that, perhaps you saw it all as it really was.

There actually ARE people who saw it as abuse and they are really angry.

HOW in the world do these people function?

I am just stunned.

Very well put!

And what does it say about those who support everything she does?

MareDevon said...

She sure wanted press this week...definitely not what she had in mind. Kate is a PR nightmare.

Charlez said...

It's time for the media to start taking some responsibility for this horrible woman.

They know that she has no problem trashing her ex and thereby harming her children and yet they still put her on and ask her the questions.

As far as I'm concerned, they're on notice.

It's the media personalities that are harming the children.

They're enablers.

Anc TLC is the worst. They are paying this woman to be a witch!

Jane in CA said...

There is an article about Kate's recent appearance on the Regis/Kelly show on the Huff Post, with 780 comments so far. I'd say close to 100% are completely negative toward Kate. Even her die hard fans are growing tired of defending her (or more likely, finding it harder and harder to do so without looking like complete fools).

I wish I'd seen that Joan Rivers clip - sounds hilarious! Joan has been calling Kate out on her real self for a long time and I love her for it.

Kate has no class, and it shows every time she opens her big fat mouth.

If Jon is scanning through these boards, I hope he will keep doing what he's been doing: keeping out of the public eye, quietly taking care of his kids when he has visitation, and offering no response to Kate's tacky behavior other than to say that he chooses not to engage in trash talking for the sake of the kids. Seriously, it's that easy.

Button Button said...

Today IS a wonderful day!

Kate is going down.

Merrilee said...

She's baiting him because she needs to be back in the news. The show is tanking in the ratings and every time there's drama with her and Jon, she manages to squeak out another gig because she plays the "poor me" card.

Jon responded on Twitter by saying that his kids and family know the truth and he's not engaging her.

Whoever is giving him advice lately is finally getting through! Don't take the bait Jon. Let her make a fool of herself. The paparazzi pictures prove you've been with your kids consistently the entire time.

The paps that she loves to court will be her downfall because not only do they show Jon's been with the kids but you can also see how happy they are with him and how miserable they look with her.

Enough said!

Jon needs to stay quiet and let her implode all on her own.

The end is very near.

Auntie Anne said...

Ratings for her show are down and very likely this is behind this little spat. I find both of these people to be despicable for how they've behaved but to go in public and demean her children's father is really low. Especially if it's for ratings, which is what I suspect. I truly feel sorry for those kids.

Mrs Miss said...

Does it not occur to Kate, THE NURSE, that her responsibility, if she wants to encourage a good relationship between the father and the children, is to encourage them and let them know that Dad's house will not necessarily be the same as Mom's and that they should view it as an adventure? Watching the show before the divorce, it was obvious to me that Jon had a more relaxed liberal style, and that the kids loved that. He wanted the kids to have fun, get dirty, enjoy life. Kate was far more controlling. Before the divorce, these kids preferred the freedom afforded them by their Dad, and they had a mixture. Now alll they know is Kate's controlling style and so being accorded freedom makes them feel less secure. I saw the little boy who wears glasses kind of freak out because he was painting and got paint on himself. Does that sound like a normal five year old to you? Freaked out! Then pleads to an assistant, "Paper towel, please! I said, paper towel, please!" That is a product of Kate's controlling--you know, nobody should ever get dirty.
She is making them all neurotic as hell.

K8scomeundone said...

Who is Kate Gosselin trying to kid with her ugly comments about her children's father on Regis and Kelly? She isn't sitting at home waiting for her kids to call to come home, she's off to NY or LA-shacked up in hotel room with her trusty bodyguard. Steve Neild spends more time with Kate Gosselin then he does with his own wife or is he still married? Many a woman would have wised up and put their foot down long ago with what Kate has done. Jaime's kids cannot be too happy either with their mother traipsing off to vacations with the Gosselin 8 while they don't get to go with their mom. Plus they get to hear Kate tell the world their Mom sleeps with Katie Irene Gosselin!

Kate, are we suppose to act like we don't remember you saying the house was bought for the children so they would not have to be shuffled back and forth, or we haven't seen that tape where they screamed and begged their father not to leave them with you? Don't leave us Daddy! Why don't the children look as happy with you, Kate, as they do when they are with their daddy? If your kids do call you, are you sure they aren't playing you Kate because they are being disciplined by their dad?...something your children need...not to be served on a "golden platter". Kids learn to play divorce parents against each other, don't help them ..Kate, don't trash their Dad, especially in public, on TV no less. It won't bring you cash, sympathy or viewers anymore, Kate but it will make your kids hate you in the end and you have already lost the respect of just about everyone.
Kate Gosselin is coming undone, God help the Gosselin 8. Jon Gosselin, don't let TLC and Kate bully you around. The public should be aware of their tactics. TLC ought to be walking on egg shells anyway these days. Those fools only have to look at their ratings of certain types of shows and think.

Flush this turd said...

She's hanging herself. Kate's worst enemy is Kate. Oh, and some day, the kids. A poster said this a long time ago: that the kids would be her undoing someday. Poetic.

Agnes Lucinda said...

Come on Kate! More tears and how much your family means to you. Odd, since you have nothing to do with your own family. You are sooooo poor and have to work sooo hard for your 8 meal tickets. Your children are adorable but heaven help them for having you as their mother.

fidosmommy said...

I have read the transcript of Kate's time on Regis and Kelly. I could not find one complete, coherent sentence among all the words there. It was a mess of nothing. Then I saw the video. It was just as bad as the written word.

And she wants to be a host or an interviewer? Who is she kidding?

Yes, and FINALLY someone worthwhile must be advising Jon. His statement he released is much classier and makes her look like a complete tactless moron. Maybe Jon has potential. Jon, if you could start making wise decisions on behalf of your children from here on out, that would be great.

hayden said...

Hmmmmmmm.



Methinks Khate doth protest too much. Between that ridiculous fake blog post about the kids putting on shows for her because they are so glad to come home, and then yesterday's disgusting mudslinging, I can only hope the video of the kids screaming at the gate has set some kind of behind the scenes (where it should be) action in motion.

Kate is rearing her already ugly head in response to the fact that as the father of the children, Jon has rights she cannot deny. She managed to remove him from the home and from the everyday lives of the kids, but unlike her hundreds of "helpers" she can't just kick him to the curb and tell him to go away. So Kate "the high road taker" (barf) is going to play dirty. Please let this backfire on her, big time.

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

I can't believe kate throwing jon under the bus like she did yesterday.

my husband left me sick and with no money with 3 boys and i never trashed him in front of the boys. i told them over and over that their dad loved them. i agree with the poster that said she is making them neurotic as hades!

i told my mother what i thought of my ex husband privately! it went no futher!

kate is despicable!

Button Button said...

Wonder if Kate is eating crow for dinner tonight.

Wonder how it tastes.

Those little kids are going to have a tough time at school on Monday.

Yes, we would like to think the other pupils have been told by their parents and their teachers to be kind to the little Gosselins.

We all hope that is happening. Please let it be.

Kids can be mighty cruel without even realizing how vicious their little tongues can be.

Brummygirl said...

For once, Jon is playing this correctly. Let Kate babble her nonsense all over the media, there is so much proof that she lies. She created this proof with her so called *Pap* people.
Keep on doing what you do are doing Jon, she will hang herself in the end, she cannot help it, she is feeling rather desperate at the moment, she is losing control. Soon we will here a big bang in P.A. as she explodes, I only hope the kids are with Jon.
Kate, no one believes you any more except your stupid sheeple!!!

Anonymous said...

Three questions that should have been asked:

#1. So Jon is behind with child support and you've done nothing about it? Really? Why not get his salary attached? Oh, he has no salary?

#2 Why isn't Jon working? Is it because he's under contract not to work? And why would you approve of such a thing? You would rather sacrifice money for your children than have the possibility of your ex saying something unflattering about you?

#3 How can you be working but your kids aren't? You're both in the same place at the same time, doing the same thing. Either you're all working, or you're all playing. And if you're all playing, why should we feel sorry for you?

As for the comment about waiting by the phone--that's an incredibly low blow. What gall to put the kids in the middle of this mess.

Joan Rivers "Fashion Police" is on twice again tonight. I am on Mountain time, but it will be at 5:30 and again at 10:00 here.

You know, the one where she is a bit snippy about Kart! Don't miss it!

Granny's Baby Girl said...

I am betting seven out of the eight can't wait to get back to Jon's "small" apartment. But to keep it more personal, he could have them one at a time or two at a time every now and then. How delightful for those little kids!

When I was little, our Grandmother would have all ten of her grandkids for a sleep over six times a year.

Her house was tiny. We took our sleeping bags. We loved every single second we were with her.

We knew we were cherished by her and those are among our sweetest memories.

dustilies said...

TLC is running K & 8 episodes back to back tonight, till 1 am. Of course, they only have three episodes to show, so they are running the sequence twice over.

I guess they are expecting a surge in interest in Kate after her appearance on Regis and Kelly.

*crickets*

thank you fidosmommy for reading the transcript.
It would be great if an English teacher or a linguist would grade that transcript and write an article on it!

Actually, they are not running back to back, the schedule changed. My cable system had it listed too, then today I checked and they changed it. Also only one episode on monday(1/2 hour) OHHHH, what happen TLC, beginning to see the light?

she is evil said...

There's a reason why the courts divide assets between divorcing couples evenly, or at lease fairly. There should never be a 'rich' parent and a 'poor' one. I'm not sure why Jon has rented such a small apt, but finances must play into it. If Kate truly loved her kids, she'd loosen that financial stranglehold she has on Jon to allow him to rent/buy a modest, secure place for himself and the kids she claims to love so much. Imagine how much a 3 bedroom house in a gated community would benefit everyone. It wouldn't be a huge sacrifice on Kate's part: how about giving up $2,500 or $3000 of her $20k a mo tv child support as a gift to her children and the dad who they love and need. She has the power to make this happen, but prefers this bullshit. Bet you anything those kids all turn on her and live with jon in the future. In acrimonious splits, the kids always figure out who the asshole is

bonehead said...

To answer the person about the Jon in and apartment or house. It was 2 different articles I read last week, that said that Jon was looking for a house, and the other said he just bought a house near by, where the kids live. Cause the other articles are saying that Jon still lives in NYC. If he does that is a very long drive, to see ones kids, much less pick them up from school. So where does Jon live? And Kate can't make up her mind in which place Jon lives, a home or an apartment, cause they are 2 different things.

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

Because Kate is so entitled, i wonder if they got going out on the ocean if she cackled to the captain that they needed a bigger boat.

sorry, i am so mad at her! line from JAWS.

Amy2 said...

Hmmm, no pictures of Kate pumping gas, shopping at Target, getting her manicures on ROL. Gee, could she be in hiding today given that the boards are so negative to her after her display on R&K yesterday? Fame as we all know is a double-edged sword. Kate is finally getting the bad press she so richly deserves.

"I have read the transcript of Kate's time on Regis and Kelly. I could not find one complete, coherent sentence among all the words there."

888888888888888

I also read it. It's sad. I was an English teacher who has studied linguistics at length, and you are correct. It is a jumbled mess of what we so many times told our students was "gobbledygook."

Her discourse grammar is marginally functional. Her syntax is non-existent. It was painful listening to her trying to piece words together, but by gosh, I had no idea how bad it was until I read the transcript. Here's a quote...

"So I still, when I go back and think in my mind, because I’m asked that a lot, I think I ended up with eight kids and I never envisioned that, and then I ended up with this change of career that has allowed me to provide for them."

and...

"It depends on the day, um, I just know that it’s, you know, it’s my focus, is the kids..."

If she is expecting to be a talk show host, I don't think she should sit around waiting for a phone call from a producer.

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

I agree completely with you, but the problem has always been that kate doesn't love her children nearly as much as she should. If she did she wouldn't be exploiting them. It would also so great maturity if she did that for her kids & Jon, fixed things so that he could have a nice 3 bedroom house, unfortunately I don't think she'll be behaving with that kind of maturity in this life.

In the end, it really is all about kate, & that's just sad when there are 8 little ones involved. Again I agree with you, I believe they will turn on her as well in the end, when they are all grown, holidays at dad's much smaller, warmer home will always see more of them than mom's big, cold, hollow house.

You would think a parent would want the best for their kids no matter where they were. That they would want the other parent to have a nice place for when the kids are over there. I think kate wants them to hate going to Jon's, I think she expected them to call & BEG to come home, but given the display we saw on that clip of flim when Jon dropped the kids off at the end of the driveway, her little plan didn't work. They don't want to go to the orphanage & they do want to be with their father even if it means being in a one bedroom apartment with him.

Money & size of residence does not seem to be prejudicing the 8 in the way kate has hoped. She will never understand that it's the quality of the time you have with that parent, not what ridiculously expensive place they can take you to, ignore you in & pawn you off on the nannies. kate still thinks money equals love. If Jon won the lottery tomorrow & got millions he'd be attractive to kate once more & she'd probably try to take him for all he was worth like she did before.

SuzyQ said...

So sorry - I made a mistake re: the # of panelists on Fashion Police that choose "streetwalker" - it was all 4. That makes it even funnier!

I never used to care or comment on Kate's outfits until this summer - she has really started whoring it up lately. Whew, and that debacle she was wearing on Regis & Kelly was SCARY! Those poor kids have yet one more thing to be embarassed about. She really looks desperate - like maybe she changed her mind about Playboy, not that they even want her!

Babsie said...

What Kate probably meant about the kids preferably staying at home was that she had dragged them up and down and across the US all summer that as any weary travelor knows it is a thrill to sleep in your own bed. It doesn't have anything to do with her maybe not anything to do with Jon just has to do with the comfort of sleeping in your own bed once in a while.

As far as the kids wanting to be with her, more likely they simply get tired of having to fight for what ever scrap of affection due to always existing within a pack and never by themselves. Probably being at home alone or just "not a nanny" must be a real treat for them. It is always about Kate and ever about what the kids are feeling and what they need.

For Kate to be Happy said...

I think Kate would be much happier and much more successful if she had bigger boobs. I think she needs ENORMOUS boobs - like size G or something - and then people will notice her and she'll be successful in show business.

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

Heidi is looking for a dr. to take her size G? implants out. Kate loves a freebie, so let Heidi gift Kate her implants!

hey, kate, it's a freebie!

surgeon not included. haha

No Shame in her Game said...

Jon should have got the old house. Why he didn't fight for that I will never know - she gave it away. Oh wait he didn't have a lawyer as he found out on the day of finalizing the divorce when his attorney was made to leave the table and sit in the spectator section because he didn't have a license in PA. Clearly an inside job.

I think Jon has learned a lot from his mistakes. He had been led around by the nose by a woman who should have been a man his entire adult life and then was sent out to the vultures on his own at a moment's notice. Unlike Khatan hopefully he learns from his mistakes.

About the outfit on RK it looked cheap, as well as inappropriate. Looked like something you would find in a cheap teen knockoff shop in a strip mall. As a friend of mine says whose mother buys her designer clothes it is all about the cut.

Kateisanidiot said...

Instead of Kate going on national television to exploit her children's emotional 'issues' perhaps she should take some of that budget she has allocated for vanity maintainence ( hair extentions, tanning, nails, spa etc) and invest in some therapy for her children.

Pattypanda said...

Kate's probably still hold up in her NYC hotel w/ Steve. No pics cuz she is such a celeb that the only ones that follow her are tipped of by her of her schedule. Why rush home to kids that are probably there with the nannies and their toys. LOL Not like she's be there to help Cara and Maddy with any homework or anything. Oh that's right, they are smarter than her already.

Rosie said...

Kate's endless vacation with those
kids has been going on for FOUR years now. The kids don't know what its like to spend a summer at
home, just doing kid things.
There's hardly a place that she hasn't dragged them to, and after while, it all becomes meaningless to children that age, because its commonplace to them and no big deal. Then after while, NO amount of stimulation is going to satisfy them, because they have no expectations of anything.

Home Is Where The Heart Is said...

"So where does Jon live? And Kate can't make up her mind in which place Jon lives, a home or an apartment, cause they are 2 different things."

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

If someone lives in an apartment, they still refer to it as "home," because that's what it is, such as "I'm going home." They don't say, "I'm going to my apartment." I haven't heard Kate say anything about Jon's "house," only when the kids are at his "home", which very well could be his apartment. He's not in NYC, and as far as I know he's still living in the same apartment.
Anyone know?

pinkdiamond611 said...

If you listened to what she was saying it seems like a few of the kids like their own house with their TOYS. Nothing about the kids missing HER. What she said was definitely to counter the Jon You-tube video. So, show us a tape Kart, of the kids crying they don't want to go to Daddy, they want to stay home and play with their toys. And of course one of you waiting at home not going to the Essex House with Purse Boy.

Hambone said...

Regarding Kate's speaking on Reg & Kel....

In any given interview, she's like one of those talking dolls where you pull the string and it says one of about 5 phrases:

1. My focus is always the kids.

2. Honestly, to be honest..

3. I work while the kids play beside me.

4. I do it all for the kids.

5. I try to keep things peaceful.

You pull the string and she blathers out one of these phrases, and in between phrases is a bunch of baloney that sounds half english, half pig latin, and topped off with plenty of "umms".

Her demeaner also changes wildly, depending on if she is being interviewed or if she is interviewing someone else. If she is being interviewed, she acts all calm and prim and proper and prissy. But when she does the interviewing, she loses her mind and behaves as if she's three sheets in the wind, laughing and being full of herself.

http://www.goodenoughmother.com/2010/09/the-kate-hate-continues/


Check out the bottom of the posts where a sheeple tells Rene(the former host of CBS's "The Morning Show")
...."There is something seriously wrong with people who get so much pleasure from hating someone they do not know. If I were Kate I would hire a lawyer and start going after some of these people. You are sick and disgusting and need to get a life.

To which Rene responds "yes I do know her, I worked with her last summer." Too funny and about time a sheeple was made to eat their mispelled, delusional words! And I wish someone would PLEASE give the sheeple a basic lesson in the definition of slander, defamation, and libel. Writing about our dislike of a woman who's only income is from pimping her 8 kids on TV and walkin' the ho stroll 3 times a week in the Target parking lot is NOT cause for Kate sue us. This is America and in America we are allowed to voice our opinion. You may not like it sheeple, but we are allowed to SAY IT and WRITE IT. There have been hundreds and hundreds of unflattering articles in tabloids and magazines about Kate. Never once has she sued. Jennifer Anison has sued and won. Brad and Angelina have sued and won. Kate has never exercized her option to sue, causing many to speculate her "people" may feel the preliminary discovery process of a trial would be too damaging to her and would open up the can of worms TLC and her little confidentially agreements keep quiet. Has TLC tried to bully anti-Kate blog and gossip sites into shutting down? Yes. Have they succeded? No. Because they legally can't shut down forums where people are exercizing their right to free speech.

If you sheeple are so passionate about this woman and protecting her, between the 10 of you, you need to come up with some new and legitimate reasons for defending her. You are not helping your goddess at all by constantly claiming "your jus jellus" or that Kate should sue someone who gives an opinion of her. It's lame and getting really old.

she is evil said...

I realize Kate is too narcissistic and selfish and angry to ever do this, but it is in HER best interest, as well as the kids', to foster a positive relationship with their dad. My ex and I are the best of friends and are constantly doing each other favors with switching nights with the kids, driving them to/from where they need to go, etc. Sometimes everyone will eat at my house on his night (or vice versa) if his fridge is running low and mine is well stocked. In fact, the kids say they love both homes, feel at home both places, and that each home has its pluses over the other (one house or the other has better Internet, better AC, better cable, a better stocked fridge (me) or a pool (him)). You get the point. If you can get past the anger, a good relationship with the ex is good for everyone. I think of it as a huge present to my kids, with benefits for me and my ex.

Gnat Spitter, Camel Swallower Kate said... said...

The tv was on one of my favorite shows called, It is Written with Shaun Boostra this morning. He said something that fit Kate perfectly.

It is in Matt. 23: 23-28 and it talks about a person who strains out a gnat and swallows a camel. Hipocrits!

this is kate to a T! she gives almost nothing, but she takes as much as she can!

K8STFU said...

I just sent the following email to the R & K show via "contact us" :



Shame, shame, shame to all of you involved in allowing this selfish, greedy, liar ANY air time. That you permitted this horrible woman to spew boldface lies and also trash the father of her children ON NATIONAL TELEVISION is despicable.

Does ANYBODY do any serious fact checking or research anymore?

Hope you all sleep well at night knowing you contributed to the exploitation of 8 innocent children. Their good-for-nothing "mom" and TLC have already done a great job at ruining their childhoods - you should feel really proud that you contributed to their ongoing nightmare. Good grief.

she is evil said...

Oh and FYI, my kids are older than the G8 (about 12 and 10 when we separated), and as such, could verbalize their wants and desires. They never ever said one bad thing about their dad to me or vice versa. They never expressed loving one of us more or wanting to spend more time with one of us. And they made damn sure they spent equal time with me and him. (If I took a couple of nights for him while he was out if town, they'd make sure to make up time with him when he returned). The G8 are too young and too scared of their mother to feel free enough to voice what's in their hearts. And even though she has been a beast to them, amazingly, I'll bet you the kids want to see her as much as they want to see their dad.

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

i am a andy griffith fanatic and often quote lines from the show and belong to a newsletter group.
remember when the Gold Truck was coming to Mayberry and everyone was crowded outside the courthouse to see the truck? there was a man in the crowd that had a sign about taxes and gold. His name was Regis and he hollered, Worshippers of Mammon! i just thought it was funny that his name was Regis, like live with Regis and Kelly and that he hollered Worshippers of Mammon, because someone posted that a couple of days ago.

Jane in CA said...

I think Kate's most recent television appearance on Regis & Kelly really has backfired. Everywhere on the internet, where there is discussion about her comments re the kids supposedly not wanting to stay with Jon during his time with them, people have nothing but harsh words for her.

She opened her mouth and inserted both hammer toed feet.

The more people get to know her, the less they like her. I think she only has a few actual fans, delusional mean-spirited women like herself, but they're rabid in their defense of her (and by extension, themselves).

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

I wonder when Kate got through with her interview when she got up and walked in the back to meet up with Steve, I wonder if Steve said something to her about trashing Jon. or did he wait till they got to the silent cone (get smart) divider limo to talk about it. i think Kate is proud is very proud that she said what she said and is baiting Jon to get something anything started so she can get on the cover of People, Star, whatever magazine will do a photo shoot on her.
I wonder after all this is that Kate person from People still drooling about Kate Kreider?

I feel so sorry for the kids and her parents and family that really care about the kids. to isolate her children from their grandparents and aunts and uncles and cousins, well, she is going to reap what she sows so well.

Exhausted said...

Rene (goodenoughmother) is great. Intelligent and well-spoken. I'm betting Rene could tell everyone a great story. (Rene was one of the panelists on the Paula Deen thing that never got off the ground due to Kate having the charisma of a slug.) I wish Rene would write an article about it, but I think she's too classy. Basically, from what I heard from someone involved in the production, Kate did not engage with the other women at all, and they had to dumb down their conversation to accomodate Kate. I wonder if any producer (DWTS, ET, etc) ever calls Kate's people and says, "Um, are you kidding me?"

ToTheMoonAlice said...

This cannot be stressed enough...If you see Kate, and her lips are moving, she's LYING! No need to listen any further...We've heard it all before.

mama mia said...

Does anyone believe Kate's mother is on a blog defending Kate and her Regis interview? The sheeple are eating it up.

Hippie Chick said...

@K8STFU Great letter! I hope they understand that having Kate on was a bad idea & they will think twice before asking her on again. I hope all talk shows will think twice! Kate has dug herself a huge hole this time. She just keeps digging, doesn't she? Is she proud of herself? Is she patting herself on the back? You know she was baiting Jon, and good for Jon for not fighting back (he really shouldn't have said a word JMO) but she is seething about all the negative press. I hope The View talks about it, I hope Regis talks about it, I hope the Rags talk about it, all against Kate. Nobody in their right mind will want to work with Kate again after this one. Who would want too? She goes on & on about something so deeply personal, trashing her ex, hurting her children, all on a national platform. Ratings will dip even lower I'm thinking, TLC will say Bye Bye to their "Gimme-Gimme Queen", & the kids will have their lives back.

If Kate would so blantantly lie about not having had a boob job, something we ALL can see with our own eyes that she DID indeed have, then why on earth would anybody with a brain believe anything she said Friday on Regis & Kelly?

She is a compulsive liar. That's so sad. A grown woman with eight children and she still hasn't outgrown the lying.

When are these enablers, talk show producers and freebie givers gonna wake up and smell the juicy juice?

silimom said...

Jon's Finances (this is only based on various comments and readings I've done. Please correct me if I'm wrong):

To the best of my understanding:

1) The marital assets were divided. The judge required that Jon's share be placed in an escrow account to ensure he would be able to meet his child support obligation. His monthly child support is drawn out of this account. I'm not certain if he is allowed access to this account for other expenses or if it can only be used for child support. However, his original attorney petitioned the court to have his lawyer fees deducted from Jon's share of the marital assets once they were awarded which apparently was granted.

2) Jon receives $5000 a month from TLC as payment for allowing the children to be filmed. This allows Jon to live a modest lifestyle, as we have seen him do this past year.

Housing:

Jon moved into a 1 bedroom (maybe 2? Not sure) apartment early last year.

Shortly after Kate's R&K interview, one of the online gossip sites incorrectly reported that Jon was living in a house. I think that's where the house hunt/purchase rumors got started. To the best of my knowledge, he still lives in the apartment.

I do not see Jon having the financial ability at this point to purchase a house. Renting one, yes. Buying? No. But someone could tweet Ellen and ask her.

See Alice said...

Could you just imagine Elin Nordegren going on Regis & Kelly and bashing Tiger Woods?

Me, either. Because for one, she's an adult, and number two, she has more class in her pinky than Kate has in her entire body.

Elin managed to talk about the entire scandal in People Magazine WITHOUT once throwing stones at Tiger or dissing his parenting. If anybody had a right to bash somebody, it's Elin. But she's an A Plus as far as being a decent human being and protecting the wellbeing of her kids.

Kate, you just suck. There is no hope for you. Your parents must be mortified.

Pattypanda said...

How many times did she mentioned on R&K that she's the sole support for 9 people. At least 2, maybe 3 times. Why didn't Anderson ask directly, you're not getting child support? It is obvious, no one has time to fact check on all her previous lies and no one has ever watched the shows where she was horribly abusive to Jon and not very nice to her own children. Kate, it's more like 8 are supporting YOU. If you're in front of a camera, "working" so are they. I hope the have some momey put away for them when they are older and need to sue her for all their past earnings that she has thrown away on herself.

Ravello said...

I've been following this terrible saga forever but the Live appearance made my blood boil. I could not believe the garbage coming out of that shrew's mouth. She is hanging herself but she is too stupid to realize it. She knows the ratings are tanking so she needed to get back in the headlines. She hopes people will tune into K8 to see what the fuss is all about. However, the general public is sick to death of her and just wants her to go away.
Thanks K8STFU for writing to Live, I did the same. I also wrote to Anderson Cooper, TLC and others. It is time for these media outlets to stop giving her a mouthpiece.
I think the end is finally in sight for Khate.

Actually, there's a post "allegedly" written by her mother on another blog in which this person claims that Kate did nothing wrong by slamming Jon, and that if "we" knew the reason his visitation was terminated at the "BIG" house, and what went on there, then we wouldn't let him into the house either.

It appears to be written in typical sheeple fashion, someone masquerading as Kate's mom. Yawn.

I just do not believe her relatives, especially parents, would come out on a blog in support of her unless they are complete cowards. Who but a coward would not appear in an interview or one of her shows and stand up for her and say how great she is, and who but a coward would not publicly accompany her on vacations and be seen visiting the grandkids and then go on a blog and quietly defend her? If someone slammed MY daughter, I'd be right there telling the world how great she is, privacy be damned! I wouldn't care if someone then turned around and insulted me. Nope, wouldn't matter. And I would be with my grandkids as much as possible, and in public! Why would they not defend her loudly in a public forum yet go to some blog hardly anyone will see and do it?

bluhare said...

I think she might have narcissistic personality disorder. A person with narcissistic personality disorder:

•Reacts to criticism with rage, shame, or humiliation
•Takes advantage of other people to achieve his or her own goals
•Has feelings of self-importance
•Exaggerates achievements and talents
•Is preoccupied with fantasies of success, power, beauty, intelligence, or ideal love
•Has unreasonable expectations of favorable treatment
•Requires constant attention and admiration
•Disregards the feelings of others, lacks empathy
•Has obsessive self-interest
•Pursues mainly selfish goals.

First time poster, prior lurker!

K8STFU said...

Tami, I didn't even watch the clip.Or, should I say, COULDN'T.
I read comments here and all over the internet - K8/TLC really outdid themselves this time didn't they?

Like many others, I want to know how/why TLC has so much power? Wasn't it just an itty bitty station prior to all this J&K garbage ?

Kate is getting desperate said...

Regarding kate's mom's post, either:
1. Mrs Kreider has a secretly close relationship with her daughter that has been kept under wraps and she has chosen a sheeple blog to diss the father of her grandkids. OR
2. Some sheeple is so desperate to make Kate look 'good' by making up secret horrible things that Jon has done that justifies Kate's behavior. And let's say Jon did do something awful? What's the harm with not letting him in the house and picking up the kids behind the privacy bushes on their driveway?

Hippie Chick said...

According to imdb, Kate's popularity is UP 190% this week. That frigin sucks. We need to get that lower. I think it's all about the R&K appearance. Speaking of, I wrote to the show, complaining about her utter display of class & how their show was NOT the forum for bashing her ex. I also wrote that they should do their research. I said go back a few years, you'll be surprised about what you find. And they should thick twice before inviting her back. I said you most likely lost some viewers because of that appearance. Kate is famous for the sake of being famous, and she pulls this woe is me pity party every few months to garner ratings for her show. It's all lies. I also wrote that it was pathetic to have to watch Anderson Cooper sit there & listen to KG whine & moan about something so trivial when he did award winning journalism about the oil spill, & other major events in the world. Anyways, just thought I'd share!

Just My Few Canadian Cents said...

Great posts. I didn't see the Kelly/Anderson interview but I can't imagine what Anderson was thinking during it. He's made no secret of his disdain for the Gosselins (or Paris Hilton) on his CNN show. I'm sure it was painful for him.

My heart really goes out to the Gosselin children.
I think Kate needs to return to the parenting class(es) the judge ordered her and Jon to attend earlir in the divorce proceedings. She obviously failed to get anything out of it, for if she was paying attention she would know that when you badmouth your child's parent you hurt your child. It's a shame there is no child advocate for this Gosselins with regard to their TLC employment or their parents' divorce. If there was such a person assigned to them by the courts, perhaps s/he could impose a public gag order on Kate and Jon. It definitely seems to me that it's in the children's best interests if their parents (more so Kate) were publicly muzzled.

I suppose Kate went on the show to boost her sagging ratings. It seems that the bad behaviour for other celebrities helps their careers. But she couldn't admit to needing rehab for any sort of addiction as she could lose custody. She can't have an affair as she's already single. So, short of a wardrobe malfunction, all she can do to get back in the headlines is to belittle Jon and talk about her divorce and custody issues. And it worked. She demeaned Jon and in turn has received much attention for it. It's negative attention, but I don't think she or TLC care if the attention is positive or negative as long as people talk and write about her. But I really, really hope the ratings for her show continue to drop - and drop significantly because of this interview. She shouldn't be rewarded in any way for behaving in a manner that hurts her children.

Lastly, this interview reminds me of the backlash Anne Heche received following her appearance on David Letterman. I think she talked about her having to pay her ex alimony and while she intended to be funny, nobody laughed. I don't think the public approves of public mudslinging when young children are involved. Kate's handlers and publicist should remember that.

Sheeple Suggestion said...

I think that since the sheeple admire Kate so much and are such loving fans that they should try to meet Kate sometime - maybe hang out at the Target by her house - or wherever, and then approach her and talk to her. They shouldn't do this when TV cameras are rolling otherwise Kate would be nice just for show. If they met her and she was nice to them when it wasn't on camera, they would have more validity.

Or hear the flushing toilets?

Very interesting that they pulled the K8 marathon at the last minute . . for Cake Boss. Really? That's all they have?

Oh, yeah, it is.

Methinks the bloom is off K8's rose
so far is TLC is concerned. Looks like they are just using the last Gosselin footage to line up their next multiples shows.

The Scalawag Steve doll would, of course, be sold with an assortment of purses. He would say, when you pulled his string:

"Fontastik bikini, Kite"
"Delete those photos, NOW!"

No worries. It's still there. She didn't take it down.

silimom said...

I just do not believe her relatives, especially parents, would come out on a blog in support of her unless they are complete cowards.

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

Personally, I feel the same way. I also think if her family WERE supportive of her, that she'd have brought it up on the show.

Kate's whole story re: her family (parents) is that they've seen the kids but they really don't want to be hands on grandparents. They didn't know how to help her, after all.

I think her sister, Clarissa (is it Clarissa or Clairissa? I've seen it spelled both ways) had blog post once before she took it down that discussed her struggle with wanting to be a part of her sister's and nephews' and nieces' lives and honoring her parents. She chose in the end to honor her parents. Truth breeds hatred had a link at one time.

Her sister, Christen, makes jewelry (she made the necklace that Kate wears all the time, if memory serves). She had a post on her blog comments one time that did criticize those who trash Kate, her point being that this woman is her sister and they have a history and it is hurtful to the family when people criticize her. Something to that effect.

Those posts rung more true than the little I've seen on facebook. And honestly, I don't see her parents posting. I could be wrong. I'm sure they've talked with her in the last year. But I have a feeling they'd still not know how to help her.

Here's what Jon said re: Regis and Kelly

" On Friday 10th September 2010, @jongosselin1 said:


reply

As much as I want to respond to numerous LIES recently claimed on Regis and Kelly, I will refrain. I have learned from the past that it’s a waste of my time and energy. I am “rising above”, and refuse to engage in any sort of public argument that could potentially harm or upset my children. My children and the people in my life know the truth, and that is what’s important."

Kate looks like the biggest fool now, Jon just showed who the bigger person is.

mama san said...

think back to the episode where Jon took the kids fishing. Mady didn't want to go so spent the day with Jon's mother,her grandmother. Also, the shots of Jon's family at the house; and Jodi & Kevin visiting. Jon does provide contact with the families. Jodi and Kevin have not received money for their interviews!

K8STFU said...

Kudos for writing Hippie.

I know they are just doing their jobs but I am still very disappointed that the show or Kelly/Anderson would participate in this garbage.

How is TLC so powerful that EVERYONE must cater to them?

Anderson, like you mentioned, is very highly respected. That he had to sit there and listen to K8's diatribe must have been torture and against every "journalisticish" bone in his body.

Her discourse grammar is marginally functional. Her syntax is non-existent. It was painful listening to her trying to piece words together, but by gosh, I had no idea how bad it was until I read the transcript. Here's a quote...

"So I still, when I go back and think in my mind, because I’m asked that a lot, I think I ended up with eight kids and I never envisioned that, and then I ended up with this change of career that has allowed me to provide for them."

and...

"It depends on the day, um, I just know that it’s, you know, it’s my focus, is the kids..."

http://www.philly.com/dailynews/local/20100913__Kate_Plus_Eight__kids_could_be_in_violation_of_work-permit_rules__raising_concerns.html


A PENNSYLVANIA lawmaker is preparing to go to battle over special work permits issued to the Gosselin children, stars of the TLC network's popular reality show "Kate Plus Eight."
[…]
Both sides agree that the state's Child Labor Law, under which the department issues the permits, needs to be revamped. In
[…]
The Labor Relations Committee will hold a hearing on the bill Sept. 23, when amendments are expected to be introduced as well.
[…]
The law says that the department can authorize permits "for the temporary employment of minors as part of the performing cast in the production of a motion picture." Although TV is not included in this part of the law, the department contends that legal authorities treat films and television the same, therefore the permits are valid, department spokesman Troy Thompson said.
[…]
No background checks are required for any of the show's technicians or videographers, who sometimes work solo when filming one of the children, said Petersen,
[…]
Murt's bill also proposes the following safeguards:
* Minors, 7 to 17, working on a TV, movie production or other entertainment would be required to have a work permit issued by the department to assure that all provisions have been made for the minors' educational instruction, supervision, health and welfare. Murt will introduce an amendment at the hearing to include minors 6 years old and under.
* The hours worked by minors between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. would be restricted.
* A teacher or set advocate on the set would be required when a child is present.
* An employer would have to place 15 percent of a minor's gross earnings into a trust, which at least one parent or legal guardian would oversee.
[…]
When the Child Labor Law was written in Pennsylvania many years ago, there was no such thing as reality television," Murt said. Now, "reality television is a very high-profile, very lucrative, very popular venue . . . The law needs to be updated to protect children on reality television."

Anyone guessing as to the ratings tonight?

I think Kate's desperate attempt to draw in an audience by throwing Jon under the bus (again) will be a major failure.

Donna said...

Maybe the Kreider grandparents are scared that if they speak out against Kate that she will drag them thru the media. She could say all kind of horrible things and possibly they are well aware of that. I think at this point they are used not being a part of the children's lives and have sadly accepted it.

Ok, saw new pics of Jon and the tups and GF, the kids looked happy. No twins around. Maybe Mommie Dearest is punishing them. It seems that the Sheeples/Cult of Kate, must hang out at Radar on-line, they were bashing Jon, and asking where the twins were. Defending Kate etc. Even Radar on-line seems to be waking up that Kate is an idiot. The Sheeple were picking on Jon, saying that he treats the kids like dogs. Ellen(GF) has a dog, of course the kids were excited to see the dog, cause Mommie Dearest, won't let them have one. And the kids were not dressed alike, they looked like everybodys kid, not attention getters by looking alike. You GO Jon.

Yolanda said...

New interview with Kate. This one is a doozy. She just keeps dissing Jon over and over again and nobody is stopping her!

Kate said:
So when Jon wanted to be gone and not provide or be married or be in our house or whatever, I'm a rare woman that can provide for her kids, let alone eight. I do not take that lightly. I mean many people are trapped in marriages because of finances, and they are not happy and nobody is happy.

Protect8 said...

With Kate's ratings dropping rapidly and all attempts to show Kate as a "nice" person (i.e. putting her on DWTS which turned out to be a huge backlash) having failed, it seems Kate Gosselin is trying to revive her "Oh, poor me" storyline which seemed to work during and right after her divorce. So she went on Live with Regis and Kelly and tried to spin a story about how unhappy the kids are with Jon and she, the good mother, waits by the phone for their pitiful phone calls. Either ALL of the photos of the children smiling with Jon and looking miserable with Kate are pure coincidence or they tell a completely different story from what Kate claims.

Sure, I wish Anderson Cooper would have challenged Kate on her lies. But she did a good job of making herself look like an idiot all by herself.

She's Such A Phoney said...

Open Letter to Katie Kreider:

Katie - you have no heart and no soul. You seem to believe that you are above what everyone says and knows about you. The very first indication you gave of your lack of soul was your uncaring attitude towards Joel when you left him on the laundry room floor and towards Collin when he was severely impacted and crying from the pain. The real horror was your "sweep through" St. Jude's Hospital and your lack of compassion towards the children there as well as your Diva-like attitude. Your warped sense of entitlement rears its ugle head and always at the most sensitive of times.

No liked you on DWTS and no one wants to see you again after that fiasco. Ever wonder why you have no friends? People like to get as far away from you as possible.

It is unfathomable as to why you continually parade yourself up and down shopping malls in apparrel befitting a prostitute and one that is not well paid at that!! Your attention to yourself, your frequent manicures, pedicures, hair weaves and multiple plastic surgeries, belie the statement that you wait by the phone for a call from one of your children. You could care less as long as you don't have to interact with them! So stop clogging up Television with your pathetic, whining about your plight with Jon and lack of financial support - NO ONE CARES and NO ONE BELEIVES YOU! Jon is a real parent, always was and it kills you that no one really believes a ton of lies you spin!

What's with the skimpy bikinis? Just to show off your store bought jugs? Your body is thick and very clumsy! A preview for the latest episode shows you with Cara and Mady and you're in the worst skimpiest, possible suit yet. You have no shame, even in front of your children! Face it Kate - It's all about you and your kids are NOT your priority. You RUN from them. No Heart, No Shame and definitely No Soul (you sold that to the Devil (TLC) a long time ago!

Barbra said...

it looks pretty apparent that her 'loyal viewers' are either youngish kids or unhappy parents who also have no feeling for their kids. She is an abomination as a mother, ex-wife, daughter, sister, and person. She also has NO taste, in clothes, appropriate behavior, suitable events for children the age of the '8'. ALL we are waiting for is the time when TLC realizes they are shoving 'nothing' down our throats and pulls the plug on her cash cow(s). She gives NOTHING to deserve what she has been given and her children are NO better than the millions of children in this country who have next to nothing while an excess of privileges is squandered on them. And the saddest thing is most of what they were give during the 3 years they were on tv won't even be remembered as they were toooo young when they did most of it. And the next saddest thing is they have been given so much that NOW they not only expect it but show almost NO appreciation for it. They have been raised to be as greedy and show as much self-entitlement WHEN THEY ARE WITH HER! BUT (and it's a HUGE BUT)they show sheer enjoyment of even simple things (like the 9/13 picnic in the park) with Jon and Ellen. Sort of paints a NOT TOOO PRETTY picture of what she is being allowed to do to those kids by being given free rein in what she demands of them and almost total control over their lives to the exclusion of what their father wishes. AND that raises my biggest gripe, NO ONE should be allowed to exploit them and profit off of them, but WHY is SHE allowed the sole right to make money off of THEIR KIDS????

Brummygirl said...

My thought on T.L.C., is they originally put a tight contract on Jon and Kate so they could film the kids. That may have come back to bite them too as Kate is probably keeping them to the contract to keep working.
I am sure that they will find a loophole as they have all along to ditch this loser whenever possible. They can only take a loss for so long, if I were advertising on that show, I would insist on it that she be gone. Perhaps the line up of new sextuplets is T.L.C.'s way of persuading the advertisers that their products are still viable.
I sincerely hope that people are not tempted to watch tonight and it goes below the 1 million. This is the only way to send Grimelda down the drain!!
Gurgle Gurgle Kate, don't get your falsies caught in the drain pipe.

Jane in California said...

Kate "working" in Mexico with her bodyguard? Well isn't that special?

I really hope Gina Nield is getting at least half of Steve's income, as she appears to be raising two boys on her own while her husband is off with Kate Gosselin in Alaska, South Carolina and now Mexico.

Wonder what Steve's own children think of their absentee father?

All TV contracts are written to protect the network. They all have provisions for the network to cancel production. The performers can not force the network to produce episodes of a TV show. They may negotiate and try to prolong a series, but they can not force the network to keep making episodes.

She's at it again! said...

Well, I guess she really is desperate for those ratings. The 'Breaking News' on ROL is that our Ms. Kate has been spotted in Mexico with Steve. Nothing like a little scandal to make us want to tune in to that pitiful little show, right? NOT!!! I think we all pretty much knew that she was going to do something to get our attention, especially after that whole R&K fiasco on Friday. Frankly, she is really becoming pretty predictable. Love how the story says she is working, but don't say on what. I would think they would be only too happy to let us know of all the wonderful 'jobs' Kate is working on. I guess they didn't, because this is just an attention-getter, right TLC (or is this her PR team?)

Note to TLC and Kate: We've moved on. The show just isn't interesting anymore and we are no longer interested in supporting Kate's wannabe celebrity lifestyle. Now get a real job, Kate, and stop with these desperate ploys for attention.

Kudos to Jon for getting the picnic pics out; kinda shows that Mother of the Year Kate really isn't sitting around waiting for the kids to call and say they are ready to come home. And the kids look pretty darn happy too, don't they?

Yeah, working on her tan and her sex life.

Those two are totally having an affair. No doubt about it. And they have been for a long long time, right under Gina Neild's nose.

Kate Gosselin: reality star, dancer, author, and homewrecker.

yeah... single working moms are so rare said...

“I'm a rare woman that can provide for her kids”

Ok everyone – let’s do the decent humane thing and raise funds for Kate to have her foot permanently removed from her mouth. Who’s with me??

She's Such A Phoney said...

Now I ask you - First she goes on TV to spin her lies and how she waits by the phone to see which kid will call wanting to come home and then she's off galavanting in Mexico with her (ahem) bodyguard! Now - is she not such a phoney?? ROL and TLC can spin it all they want - But she is a low class tramp, no ifs, ands or buts!!

Mary said...

Kate in Mexico with Steve.. I doubt she has any fans or people who even know who she is no need for bodyguard. I guess the bodyguard pays for everything as she has no pocketbook. I can't believe no phone either. Guess Kids can't call her.. OHHH if she was working there she would have said somethinig about it on Regis show... MAybe Radar should investergate if there have private rooms.

Aunt Chris said...

Oh, I can imagine what kind of "jobs" Kate was working on in Mexico with Steve...

Just My Few Canadian Cents said...

First the egregious Jon-bashing interview and now pictures just happen to surface of Kate and Steve in Mexico. Really, TLC. When a show requires this much work to promote to increase ratings, is it really worth it? I can't imagine how much lower this network will sink to keep turning profits.

Tess H. said...

Would this be Kate's first time out of the US? If so, maybe they'll not let her back in!?!

Karazee said...

Kate and Steve working in Cabo San Lucas???

Can you holler "INAPPROPRIATE"!!!

Jon, just give Kate some rope and she WILL hang herself!!! You are so smart to stay far away from that %itch! The majority now see her as Karazee.

She's Such A Phoney said...

I can't for some reason figure out how to get a message to Regis and Kelly as well as Anderson Cooper, but if anyone else can or as many as possible, let them know about the "telephone watcher" being in Mexico with her "companion"! They should all be bombarded with this!

Hippie Chick said...

What was she promoting in Mexico? Unbelievable. We all knew she would do something to get her name out there for ratings. Was this the way to do it? As a homewrecker? Nice way to garner viewers Kate, real smart. Was Steve wearing his ring?

K8STFU said...

She's Such a Phony, I just sent an email with the link.

Hippie Chick, are you with me?

Ravello said...

OMG, I just heard about Cabo. How brazen can she be. She is blowing herself up, first the debacle on Live, now publicly cavorting with her married lover.

BM said...

The most effective way we can express our disgust with Kate is to not watch the show.

Aislinn said...

Hippie Chick said...
"What was she promoting in Mexico? Unbelievable."

********

I have no idea. I like how Radar was so careful to classify it as a 4-day "work trip" in Cabo, but didn't say what work she was doing. They must've had to do that in exchange for the tip that she was there.

I'm just wondering whose bright idea this was? Kate's? Did she think she needed more shots of her in a bikini to help ratings? TLC's? Did they think showing Kate and Steve together would boost ratings?

And do they really think people still buy that Steve's a bodyguard? Have you ever heard of someone going on a trip alone to Cabo of all places with no friends or family along and only their bodyguard for companionship? Especially a "bodyguard" that you color coordinate with and walk in lockstep with? Please.

Hippie Chick said...
According to imdb, Kate's popularity is UP 190% this week. That frigin sucks. We need to get that lower.

It really isn't that hard to make your popularity on IMDb go up. All it is is the number of times someone goes to your page, clicks on it, or writes on the message boards. I have my IMDb page as my homepage to make my numbers higher than they would be otherwise. Just from me clicking on it, I made it go up over 700% in one week. Don't worry about this number. It can just be her clicking on it herself.

Mary said...

Now really Silly people she is down in Mexico promoting her magic bra

ellamenopea said...

Just a thought re Mexico - wasn't there an article posted on one of the blogs about TLC taking 'her' shows international? She might be in Mexico doing promotions.

Kubla Khan said...

"Was Steve wearing his ring?"

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

Steve hasn't worn his wedding ring in a very long time. If you go back and look at photos taken nearly two years ago, he's not wearing it then.

Nag Champa said...

I would think it would be more advisable to raise funds for her to have her foot permanently INSERTED in her mouth. That way she'd be silenced for a very long time.

LadyD said...

LOL.....I just saw Kate's pics on ROL. The pic with her laying on her stomach on the lounge chair is priceless. If she's not having an affair with Steve, this trip to Mexico is a testiment of how alone she really is. Either she is sleeping with a married man (who is in no hurry to leave his wife) or the only person she has to take a vacation with is a paid purse holder. What a sad and lonely person she must be!!

OMG, she looks so graceful getting on the lounge chair, almost like she's taking a dump. And the butt shot - indescribable!

bonehead said...

Oh, PLEASE, she is not having an affair? sure! Her sheeples on Radar on-line were defending her. Why did she not mention this on R&K? Perhaps Steve is getting an Mexican divorce, then he and Kate will get married there. Oh, yeah, she is so worried about her kids. She is more away from them, and when she is home is still distant from them. Or perhaps this is for a promo for Twisted Kate? But, there are no cameras. If she says she needed a vacation, then she is totally luney tunes. From what: too much time on your hands or is it the Kids or from being stupid on R & K, hoping the whole talk show visit will disappear or cause, she did not get the response from Jon she was hoping for. So, now she has to regroup. I also think that Steve and his wife's marriage has been over for a long time, ever since Steve took to sleeping in the Gosselin basement, while Jon & Kate were suppose to be happily married. Ah, Questions?

Dear Lord in Heaven Hallowed be Thy Name.

I did not read the warning before I went on ROL so the old boy is dining by himself tonight. For some reason bile just keeps coming up my throat.

I guess all the Dumbo and Babar books I read as a kid, to my kids and to my grandkids were wrong. That elephant in Mexico has 2 trunks.

bonehead said...

Funny, how the comment section on Kate in Mexico, in bikini, has been disabled. Geez, how many bathing suits does she have? And what no Steve at the pool? Perhaps. he was getting his divorce. Celebs, years ago, would go to Mexico to get a divorce, then get married, or just get a divorce. Perhaps this is another headline grabber coming.

Why oh why does Kate expose her big fat ass to the world? Good grief, she's so nauseating, especially the butt shot. She obviously spraytanned everywhere since she has no tan lines...to mask the cellulite, no doubt. But she forgot her fake abs.

Posters said she'd do something for attention soon. Here ya go. Right in time for the latest installment of Kate plus 8. No one cares, Kate. Except your kids, that is. Whether or not you're squashing Steve in bed, you can bet your kids' friends are snickering at your vacation with a married, paid escort and your ugly ass.

So Kate has been in cabo since Friday and no paparazzi pix or sightings until today. Hmmm. And she was brazen enough to show that nasty body off in full public view just in time for the show tonite. Methinks she was disappointed not to be noticed and made damn sure someone with a cell phone camera, anyone, got pictures of her. She probably ran back to her room to log on to the internet only to be mortified by the butt shot (could she look ANY fatter?) and the taking a dump shot (nice flabs, I mean abs). She's probably crying to Steve as he tries to keep her at arm's length. Still don't think he's doing her. She is, after all, Kate.

@K8STFU...I emailed the link also. That lying whiner. I just can't believe she continues to say the things she says. And this new interview? About her being a rare woman who can raise her kids alone or something along those lines? That really gets me. I am not a single mother, but there are woman out there who do it everyday without help, unlike Kate. This interview needs to go widespread, so the media can see her for who she is. She attempted to come off AGAIN as a poor pitied soul, but sounded like an idiot, as per usual. What else is new?

Pony said...

If there was ever any doubt about her having implants, the latest photos from Mexico make it very clear. She looks like she had giant water balloons installed.

I can't believe that Kate actually went fishing after her kids vomitted. Why didn't she turn the boat around and go home!

wed said...

Kart is not even home?

What if one of the kids is trying to call?

The Lady is a Tramp said...

Finally, that dumb show is off, I wouldn't even channel surf while it was on. I think I am going to watch the quints though - haven't so far.

Donna said...

Kate's probably in Mexico getting ready to have some tyoe of plastic surgery.

tired of her said...

Those silly sheeple over at ROL. It says that Khate is showing off her "sexy bikini body". ummmm....yeah.

The guy who fixed her jowels(sp)...not so good. she still got a poochy hanging at the bikini line that doesn't look so "sexy" in those photos.

Wonder what will happen if the kids call and want to come home.

Donna said...

I showed my dh the picture of kate laying on her stomach, reading the book. I said, "Guess who that is?" He said "The Roloff mom?" I told him Amy Roloff would of never worn a bikini with her butt hanging out.

Brummygirl said...

Hot news...not really...but they are saying on B.M.'s site that the first episode of Twisted Kate will be shot at B.M.'s home!!!
Delusions, illusions and confusions!!!

readerlady said...

Khate actually said on National Television that she's a rare woman who can raise her kids alone? What an arrogant LIAR LIAR PANTS ON FIRE!!!!!!!!!!! I'd love to show that to every military wife out there, raising her kids while her husband is deployed, or who, sadly, didn't come home. Not to mention all the other single mothers out there who are raising their children just fine without exploiting them all over the television screen while trashing their father to the national media. In fact, many of those mothers do a much better job than Khate. They actually enjoy spending time with their children and take the time to be involved in their schools and extra curricular activities. Shame on Khate!

Isn't it crazy how she got to go to Cabo to relax? The kids are all in school after they got to work, oh I mean "play" on camera all summer. She needed a break from her work. Why don't the kids get a vacation without filming? Oh I know, because that would be a waste of Kate's time.

bonehead said...

Saw the last couple of mins of K8. Since when the kids say prayers before eating? And what can't the kids pass the food around, Kate treats them like, they are at a resturant. The kids are old enough to help them selves. Oh, I forgot, everything has to be perfect and orderly.

Just My Few Canadian Cents said...

****************************
Well, there are so many holes in that interview.

Kate:
"I've done a little acting here and there"

Reality....you are always acting Kate, especially when throwing your husband to the wolves.

Kate:
You know, friends come out of nowhere when you least expect it and family members you never thought would, disappear. That's just the way it is. So it's been hard, really.

Reality: You threw them to the curb Kate in case they took your money!


Kate:
When I found out I was having sextuplets I had no idea how I would provide for them and take care of them. Eight kids is certainly beyond fathomable for anybody who is living a normal life and just getting by. But thank God a career.

Reality: So in essence Kate, you basically robbed the poor to make you rich.

Here we go Gwopers with the sob story again about being a rare woman.
Kate:
So when Jon wanted to be gone and not provide or be married or be in our house or whatever, I'm a rare woman that can provide for her kids, let alone eight.

Reality: No Kate, Jon did not want to be gone or not married, you told him to go, even wrote out a contract. and he does provide, you would make sure of that. One thing YOU do not provide is a loving home for your kids. Possessions and expensive vacations (whilst working) do not equate to love.
Kate:

"You've caught me far enough out from my divorce that if my knight in shining armor appeared, I would, at this point, consider it. The poor thing would have to live through so much scrutiny from the outside world and from me, that I don't know that anyone would ever want to do that. But, yeah, I mean it's lonely, and it's a lot of responsibility on my own"

Reality: Never mind the kids, no one in his right mind would touch you with a barge pole other than purse boy and I am not too sure he would take you on!!

Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive!!

and "Hell has no fury than a woman scorned"......

Yeah, nice interview Kate, no one believes it!! Oh sorry, forgot about the lambs in the audience!!

I would love a chance to interview this woman.

There are just no words.... said...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


OH MY WORD! What a crock of pooey that interview was!!!

I'm laughing so hard I can hardly type - TLC "obviously" set that one up - fed the questions to the reporter so Kart could get her side of things out there.

Have to hand it to Kart's PR people - they are meticulous at reading this blog and addressing issues they find here.

They hit all the high points:

1) Jon?! wanted the divorce
2) She threw out the 'I want to be an actress' card once again
3) Her family 'turned against her'
4) She 'alone' is the support of the family
5) She is 'type A personality' and they can 'sometimes be bitchy'
6) The kids LOVE the cameramen
7) Folks don't like her but 'she doesn't care'

And so much more - TLC PR machine just makes a checklist and rebutts each point...

And the best: 'she'd like to marry again but she needs a good man'

Here's hoping the Latino sextuplets and the quints knock her off the programming list. I'm thinking that even TLC is getting sick of her and her nasty personality...

And forgive me for adding this petty final note:

What is with Kart thinking her body is appropriate for a bikinis? Those ROL mexico photos show her to be ....... oh..... I can't say, it would be too unkind.

OK, tree trunk comes to mind.

I know, petty....... sigh. She just invites comments like that when she parades around in a bikini - what in the world was she thinking? And why would PurseBoy allow that???!!!

Ellen Gray, the Philadelphia Daily News TV Critic asks an important question, "Is Kate stealing childhood from her brood of 8?" . Read it yourself:

"SO MUCH television, so little time:

It's time to free the Gosselin 8.

And only you can do it.

Frankly, until I read Regina Medina's story in yesterday's Daily News about a state lawmaker's contention that work permits were issued improperly for the Berks County sextuplets who make up six of the Gosselins' eight children, I'd managed to put TLC's "Kate Plus 8" out of my mind, the way it's all too easy to do when bad things are happening on a channel you're not watching.

I even managed to miss Kate Gosselin on ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" last season (though not, alas, on NBC's Emmycast, where the cool kids, including Jimmy Fallon, all seemed to be making fun of her).

Without her children (and her now ex-husband, Jon Gosselin, who for a time seemed to be chasing Lindsay Lohan's record for appearances in our Tattle column), Kate struck me as just another "reality" star who refuses to acknowledge that her 15 minutes are up. Annoying, but basically harmless.

With her children, however, she's someone who, whatever her intentions, is helping TLC to rob eight kids of any semblance of a normal childhood.

What's normal? Here's a hint: If your parents monitor you electronically while you sleep, they might be protective. If a TV crew does, as Kate Gosselin's sister-in-law has alleged occurred in the sextuplets' bedrooms, that's a different story.

Gosselin may not be able to stop herself. But we can stop her.

The June 6 premiere of the reconfigured "Kate Plus 8" attracted 3.4 million viewers, a number that's been falling during the show's sporadic appearances this summer. A mid-July episode reportedly drew 2.2 million, while an Aug. 30 show, the night after Kate was at the Emmys, pulled in 1.6 million, according to TVbythenumbers.com.

That's still 1.6 million too many for a series that's invading the privacy of eight kids too young to have given informed consent to the sale of their childhoods.

If you're still watching, it's time to stop."

Gosselin may not be able to stop herself. But we can stop her.

The June 6 premiere of the reconfigured "Kate Plus 8" attracted 3.4 million viewers, a number that's been falling during the show's sporadic appearances this summer. A mid-July episode reportedly drew 2.2 million, while an Aug. 30 show, the night after Kate was at the Emmys, pulled in 1.6 million, according to TVbythenumbers.com.

That's still 1.6 million too many for a series that's invading the privacy of eight kids too young to have given informed consent to the sale of their childhoods.

If you're still watching, it's time to stop."

Ah, so that's what they mean by, "Twist of Kate."

Just got to thinking - what would Bizarro Kate look like?

In Bizarro World, Kate and the kids would take trips to benefit charities. Kate's family would be seen taking the kids individually as well as a group. The kids would dress individually. Bizarro Kate would dress like a normal mother and have normal boobs. They would have dogs from the humane society. Bizarro Kate would live in a modest house, because B. Kate is hanging on to the money they make for the kids. B. Kate would been seen actively having fun with her kids participating in simple activities like making playdough and the big mess that goes with it. The bizarro kids would be laughing and having fun. (cut to scene of Bizarro Kate doing laundry and laughing at the mess the tups made)

Some comments on great comments:
She doesn't need finishing school-she's DONE!
Tree Trunk-not petty, tooo kind!
She doles out the food not for neatness and order - it's called Portion Control! Those kids are HUNGRY and would take way too much!

Pics of the shrew and the boobyguard in Mexico (thought she waited by the phone for the kids to call??)

My question is, where are the twins???
(perhaps home with the nannies?)

They have to see Jon sometime, perhaps they go on different weekends so they can get more attention without the little ones around.

No, Kate, you are not a rare woman who can provide for her kids alone; I don't care how many you have.

My mother raised 4 kids in a tiny house and worked two jobs and took college classes while she did so. She had five outfits for work and two for weekends that she had to rotate for years. When I (the last of the four) finally left for college, she got to go buy herself new clothes for the first time in years. She had no housekeeper, no nanny, no 'helper' besides us, her children, who were taught to chip in and get by. She provided a decent clean home that didn't have a gate or a pool or a newly remodeled kitchen because those are not necessities for "providing for your children."
We had happy birthdays and happy holidays. And we are all decent productive members of society. Yes, Kate, you gave birth to eight children but you are not raising them; and you most certainly are not doing anything with or for them alone.

You have just alienated yourself from all single, divorced, widowed and miitary moms out there. How dare you say you are a rare woman that can raise children alone?

All women who are really doing it alone deserve an apology from you. Make it fast you self important, entitled monster of a mom.

Kate and Steve are in Cabo on "official business." When do you think they'll their official comment that they're a couple - me thinks, when ratings really hit an all-time low. Come on, kate, just admit you and Steve are together.

Didn't Kate herself say that the kids would always have one parent home with them? That didn't last long.

was that a black thong that K8 was wearing. Not a good photo of her abs[ha]. Dr. Glass' blog nails those 2. Why did they pick Mexico?

"What in the world would you do if you were her parents?"
-------
* Try and be a part of your grandkids lives
* Try and appeal to your daughter to be a better parent
* Offer to help
* Let your daughter know she dresses like a street walker
* Ask her how she lt things go this far and get this bad

Another site is reporting that the Cabo trip was a gift from the Emmy's. Free trip for two -- they profile the 5 star hotel. Kate's companion choice was Steve. Site also reports that they left for the airport directly after the RK show where she commented that she stays home to wait for a phone call. Is she delusional or just a liar? Either way -- she is just unbelievable.

You can find the beached whale/walrus photo on katan's/k8+8 FB page. Read through the comments and the Sheeple's communication skills are about as good as k8's, Morgan C. stands out. I would imagine that most would be embarrassed for friends and family to see on the news feed in FB that you just posted this trash in favor of this fame whore. Then again, you are dealing with people who are a few bricks short of a full load.

Some of the comments are funny though. :)

I just read this and this is one of the main reasons why I will not watch this show.

How sad

Call me an optimist, but maybe, just maybe, TLC is cutting loose the reigns on Kate's image. Last week I read Al Walentis' book and realized what a tight hold TLC's handlers had on Kate's mouth and actions. That's why most of the material in Al's book seems to be against Jon - the guy with no filter at the time.

Also, I watched Kate's "Ellen Show" interview and the latest "Regis and Kelly" interview back to back. Her Ellen interview was pretty tightly scripted to the rehearsed talking points her handlers fed her. Contrast that with last week's interview where she was searching for the "right script" but let the real Kate shine on through.

For purely business reasons, TLC will stop putting their resources to support Kate's image. I think they're happy she's her own worst enemy. It will hasten the end to their sinking ship of vomit - Kate plus 8. The ratings don't support committing resources to this prize anymore.

It's all about the $$. I wouldn't put it past TLC to go back to Jon if they thought they could get a few million viewers back.

No tabloid drama in Queens: 'Sextuplets Take New York' family are the anti-Gosselins


The simplest way to describe Victor and Digna Carpio, parents of the sextuplets in TLC's latest big-family reality show, is that they are the anti-Gosselins.

If there is a God and we really are over Jon and Kate with their exhausting, pointless dramas, then perhaps we're ready for a couple of parents who focus on, oh, say, raising their kids.

Kate is a wretch said...

"What in the world would you do if you were her parents?"

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

I would say there is a LOT her parents and those around that wretch could do.

1. Speak up and let the public know they do NOT condone that wretches behavior! They can still love her but do NOT have to be a silent party to her whoredom and pimping career.

2. Stand up in court for the children's well being.

3. Put that worthless wretch on notice that they will do what they need to put a stop to her horrendous, selfish behavior!

If her parents, family members, friends, and those who have worked closely to this wretch would show some backbone and ban together, THEY could put a stop in one fell swoop to the pimping and theft of the innocence and childhood of 8 young children.

They, by their silence are allowing her to destroy 8 young lives.

Society will pay for 8 children that will have grown up believing they are entitled, they are above all others, they deserve a golden spoon stuck in their mouths for the rest of their lives. They deserve a free ride like their worthless egg producer.

Those children will be either just like Kate or emotionaly bankrupt by adult hood if this is allowed to continue!

I hope her family reads this blog...they need to do what is right, and not what is easy.

If other family members had had backbone when Kevin and Jodi spoke out and had not thrown them under the bus with their silence, this would have probably ended back then!

The silence from all involved is deafening!
