Is it a coincidence, the timing of Steve and his wife going on vacation and the reported end of Kate+8?
Will Steve be back and will he be kept on ready for Kate's supposedly new show?
Even if her show goes ahead in November, I assume it will not garner enough money for T.L.C. to keep paying for all the perks for Kate, including nannies who will not be required whilst the children are at school.

If these "reports" are true, then good for Gina! No job or money in the world is worth losing your marriage and breaking up your family. I think it is ironic that they are going to Europe since that is one place that the Kart never got to go on the TLC dime, and yeah, the Roloffs did. From what we have witnessed, I don't think the Kart is able to function with Purseboy. It will be interesting to see how things pan out.

Ohio Buckeye said...

K+8 is cancelled? What did I miss?

Is "Twisted K8" still supposed to debut in the fall? (Since it's almost the end of Sept, I'd been hopeful TLC had made the decision to spare us all that loser.

Can anyone clarify the situation for me? Thanks!

roxanne said...

The show is finally CANCELED.Thank God!You know if the Gosselins would have settled for annual specials like a one hour or half an hour special a year than I would be curious to see them over the years.But given the conditions,I hope I will NEVER see those poor children on a reality show ever again.I hope now they can quitely enjoy their childhood,maybe take on some extra school activities(each child whatever s/he wants)..maybe no more paparazzi in a couple of weks,months tops.

Kate Don't Rate said...
Can you say FUTURE EATING DISORDERS??!!

Dictating to those poor kids the exact order in which they are to eat their lunchbox food.........are you kidding me????????
_____________________

I can see those little kids eating their lunch in the order the way THEY want to, not in the order Kate has mandated, just to show some independence. That is pretty natural, actually.

Except poor little Collin. He is turning into a nervous wreck trying to do things exactly as his mom demands, whether she is around or not.

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

Kate's last ditch effort at fame has to be an exercise video or something along that line. The only problem is that she isn't a natural born runner. If you watch the video of her running, she lumbers along but she doesn't have the natural stride a runner has. Kate will be able to pull it off for a while but her body will fight back if she keeps forcing it like she has been doing. What's a girl gotta do when she's desperate? She tries the exercise route. There isn't much else left when you don't have any natural talent. JMHO as a 20 year runner.....

Autumn Sunrise said...

The show is finally CANCELED.Thank God!

______________________

It was just a rumor picked up and reported online, grabbed by Perez, refuted by TLC, who made the statement that it's not true that it was cancelled. Apparently the word "cancelled" is a misnomer, since the show initially was touted as being a series of summer specials. Don't celebrate yet. It may be back next year. At this point, nobody seems to know. The show is not on the list of TLC shows that has been renewed.

No word on Twisted Kate.

Snerk said...

The show is listed as "on hiatus or fate to be determined." About 80% of shows who land there are truly over. For various reasons, networks frequently do not issue formal notices. While they deny the show is cancelled, they also haven't announced it's renewal.

Brummygirl said...

Ohio Buckeye:
No actual announcement from T.L.C. about Kate+8, but it is reported by some that it was not intended to last more than the summer. I can see this is T.L.C.'s way out without causing waves. It is also said that Jon would not re-sign for his kids to be filmed, that is not a definite fact either as I am not sure Jon would go against T.L.C. again.
All this is just conjecture, but it would not surprise me if Kate knew this and that is why she stuffed so much filming into the Summer with the kids.
She is obviously looking forward to "Twisted Kate" but unless she is going to work 24/7 on these episodes, I cannot see how it can air in November.
Has T.L.C. played Kate? I do hope so!!

Fickle Finger Of Kate said...

Did I read that they supposedly changed the name of Twisted Kate? I can't remember to what, though. Some doofus in the TLC office who came up with the "Twist of Kate" name never ran through the negative/insulting titles that could possibly come out of it. Twisted Kate is indeed appropriate, but I doubt that it's sitting well with TLC.

Hambone said...

I think they changed the name to Taste of Kate ( sounds pornographic IMO ), and I'll bet she's off filming it at this very minute.

She ain't going anywhere, y'all. She will pop back up like a new herpes outbreak very soon.

Remember what she said. She is always twenty steps ahead of YOU and You and You ( how can she not be with those big ole boobies leading the way ).

Mindy said...

I commented on a youtube video from the TLC Channel about Kate smoking, and some other people started commenting about it too. Now the video has been deleted by the user (TLC)! Hmmm trying to hide something, TLC?

Kan't stand Khate said...

I was reading the article about her "new body" and it stated that she ran 7 miles in under an hour and that's she has been working for 4 months to achieve this goal. Ummmm...when did she have time? Do they allow running in the aisles of aircraft? Between LA and PA and PA and Cabo and Pa and LA and so on it goes. She must be confused.

Glad Stevie went on vacation with his wife and left Khate at home. I hope she is ok having to carry her own purse for awhile.

the news of a cancellation would be FANTASTIC! The news of Jon being released from his contract would be FABULOUS! The news of new laws in PA...PRICELESS!

nah nah nah nah, hey hey hey ....good bye.....

Taint of Kate?

jibberjabbers said...

Don't celebrate just yet.

Remember TLC already stated that Kate Plus 8 would only be a series of "specials" that would air in the summer.

Since it is now Fall and the kids are back in school, the show should be in hiatus.

BUT, maybe next summer, the show will return as another series of special.

Even tough Kate plus 8 is in hiatus, the kids may make a "special guest appearance" on Twist of Kate. (If TLC ever decides to go through with it).

Snerk said...

With the amount of time that has gone by with no sightings of Kate filming "Twisted Kate" I'm thinking either the pilot flopped in audience testing or it was only a talent holding deal. I'm not expecting any options to be picked up on Kate Plus 8. The ratings fall was too drastic from the opening episode.

I may be wrong, but I'm cautiously optimistic.

Ohio Buckeye said...

Thanks for the update, Brummy!

"Taste of Kate"??! What, in god's name, would that taste be??

Bitter
Unctuous
Rancid
Putrid

So, K8G has gone from DWTS to BURP.

Sounds fitting.

Brummygirl said...

So if they do go ahead with Twist of Kate, Twist of Fate whatever the twist may be, it doesn't mean to say people will watch.
The children were the draw on the shows. What else could she do if this new show doesn't surface, she has tanked at everything else.
If they are thinking of specials again next year, that would mean once again the kids have no summertime. By then, people will have put them all on the back shelf.
Would T.L.C. fund her Highness and all her perks until then? Not sure that they would.
I know we have all said she can work at what she wants as long as the children are not involved, but personally, I wish she would just fade away completely.

Brummygirl said...

@ Buckeye
Thanks for the laugh!!! :)

Diane said...

I think the death knell for 'Kate + 8' is going to be the premier of 'Sister Wives'. That show is getting a LOT of buzz, and you know TLC is going to put their resources into it. With a new hot show like SW, TLC will quietly leave Kate behind. I hope she loses all interest in the kids when they stop being her money-makers, and Jon gets custody.

Ohio Buckeye said...

Just can't get "Taste of K8" out of my mind. This may be THE WORST EVER title for a show.

"Taste of K8": Ok, together now, everyone, rinse and SPIT.

Aunt Chris said...

"She ain't going anywhere, y'all. She will pop back up like a new herpes outbreak very soon."


Classic, Hambone!

Tami said...

I heard it was Touch of Kate. I never saw it was going to be Taste of Kate!

tigerfan said...

I was reading the article about her "new body" and it stated that she ran 7 miles in under an hour and that's she has been working for 4 months to achieve this goal.


The day that I actually see Kate RUN 7 MILES in one hour along side an individual who CAN actually RUN 7 miles in one hour; I will believe it. The woman didnt even have the physical stamina to get through a BASIC dance routine without taking multiple breaks. Kate wearing a bikini on the cover of People and staged photo ops of her dressed in running garb or walking in or out of a fitness center prove NOTHING. Per usual, Kate's claim is nothing more than self serving hyberpole.

bcsurvivor2001 said...

I still have my "suspicions" about what's going on. I find it rather convenient that we have not seen any pix of her for days + Steve and Gina "just happen" to go to Europe for their 20 year anniverary - at the same exact time???? AND for the first time a look-alike decoy picks up the kids from the bus stop.........something not adding up here folks

Europe is a BIG place (to hide)

Ihatefrogstoo said...

Kate "runs" and dresses like someone who jogs a mile or two not someone who actually runs seven miles.

jonandkatewho? said...

I mean no disrespect to anybody here, but I really do not believe that TLC pays for everything that Kate has and uses. Why would they need to pay for everything in her life? I just read so many posts that sound like they assume the kids clothing, shoes, school stuff, nannies, pedis and manis, hairdos, you name it...are paid for by TLC. I don't buy it. TLC is in a contract with Kate and Jon too. Whatever they provide for her is in that contract and we are not privy to it. We can guess, that is all. I am sure she gets a decent amount of money but I don't think there is any way in hell that they are paying for her nannies, for example, unless it is while shooting. Why would they?

Just wanted to speak my mind. I still can't stand Kate and I do believe she is TLC's little whore in many ways.

Ohio Buckeye said...

How is it that now K8G can run 7 miles yet she rarely got up off it from her classy white, plastic throne when her kids were little and playing in the driveway?

Not buying it.

9/25/2010 2:47 PM

EXACTELY - and when I read she had "ran" 7 miles in just over an hour - there is NO WAY she is coordinated and/or in shape enough to run consistantly 7 MPH......that is some serious running.

NT said...

I'll bet that TLC found out that Kate was unwilling to do what other women do. She would not get down and work or get her hands dirty. Heck,she wouldn't even go camping. She wants everything in the world and does not want to work at all for it. She wants it handed to her. I also see that she hasn't been for a mani-pedi in ahwile!! Guess TLC is not paying for them anymore. What on earth will she do about her hair?

twins241 said...

more plastic surgery maybe?

Barbra said...

Fickle finger: They probably got sick of us talking 'twisted kate' which is an apt description of her.

Ohio Buckeye: I was thinking BURP is almost too refined, my pick is B E L C H ! ! !

bonehead said...

You guys are right, TLC is up to something. For nothing they pull all the K8, off the schedule, on both Discovery Health and TLC, pull anything negative off Youtube, somethings up. And now a decoy van for the kids? Kate text messaging like crazy at the music store. Or is she playing possum, what happened at Court? Maybe those rumours are not that far off?

Can't See Sheep said...

Ohio Buckeye, LMAO! You are too much. :)

LOL Hambone!

Taste of kate, eeeww, no, I've already had food poisoning before, so I have an idea what botox tastes like, thanks I'll pass on that vomitfest.


They really need to sit down & think about these names longer than a couple of minutes. This show won't last, the shrew just doesn't have what it takes to carry a show on her own. She's a little too high matenence without the talent, she'll make herself unprofitable.

Bye Bye Blackbird said...

"And now a decoy van for the kids?"

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

There was a decoy van? Where was this? The photo showed the family's big blue van...the one they use to transport all of the kids.

"Or is she playing possum, what happened at Court?"

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

Who was in court? Their court date isn't until the end of November. Do you mean the hearing? It wasn't "court" -- it was testimony/discussion on the proposed new bill, and nothing is happening until the legislators reconvene in early January.

PJ's momma said...

tigerfan, I agree with you. I am a runner and have been for a long time. For me to run 7 mph is running about a 9:30-minute mile. At 46, that is do-able, and I do it, but last year at a half-marathon, I had to use the toilet. Good-bye 2-hour goal (for 13.1 miles)! My pacer was gone out of sight when I came out of the honey-bucket. Oh well. Granted, many people run much faster than I do, but not all necessarily for long distances. Plus......her clothing choices just do not reflect those of a runner. We generally wear wicking tops, real running shorts (to prevent chafing), etc. I don't know.......I'm dubious about her claims too, even though I give props to anyone who is trying to gain or maintain physical fitness.

*************************
Indirectly they do...they pay her for the show, so that is most of her money.
We all know that Kate encourages freebies so she gets that without T.L.C., but indirectly again, it is through them and sponsors.
I would like to bet that somewhere in a disclosed account, Katie Irene is piling up the change for when the axe falls.
I would think it is a certainty that they pay for the household help.....at the moment!!!
We shall wait and see what happens down the road.
Everyone is correct, Kate has been awfully quiet and that is usually when she is planning her next big surprise!!!
Maybe she is going to jump out of someone's birthday cake at T.L.C.
"Surprise" she screeches "come and get yer birthday cake!"

StoryLady said...

Even if nothing else is true, I hope Steve is finally out of the picture.
That must have been weird for the kids. Who did they think he was?
Their protector? Their friend? Mommy's friend? The man who takes Mommy away? Their surrogate Daddy?
It must have been so confusing.
I really hope, for everyone's sake, he's gone.

Gimme Gimme said...

Tasteless Khate....

There is not much they could do with her name that people can't put their on spin on. She is a horrible mother. Never mind everything else - that is the bottom line.

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

Let's see....
No tanning sessions
No manis/pedis
No "gassing up"
No Target
No UPS pickups
No after school pickups
etc,etc,etc
Really nothing going on

Is it possible that K8 cannot function without the "puppeteer" Steve being there to "control" her? Maybe she is in a state of being miserable because ANOTHER person in her life, left her again. I feel sorry for the kids to have to deal with her at this time. I'm sure that it's not pleasant for them or any other persons in the house.

I could be wrong as she may be baking the cookies that she had in her heart or working on her cookbook that was to be published.

I was thinking along the same lines. I have a very bad feeling about what might happen to Kate's mental state if her support system --semi-functional as it is-- disappears suddenly. She doesn't seem capable of running that household by herself. At least for now, she can afford the hired help, but she really needs someone to manage them--and her.

From what I've heard about the last show, she has not even learned how to pack lunches for her children after a whole school year of practice. Nor has she worked out a routine for them all to function in public together.

This is not a good situation for the kids, not good at all.

PatK said...

I totally agree that when Kate's not "seen" for several days, something is up. I don't think she's in hiding because Steve isn't around. In fact, I don't even know if I believe Steve and Gina are in Europe. For their sake, I hope they are, though.

I think Kate may be busy with her people while they are coming up with another avenue of marketing for her.

Hippie Chick said...

The saddest conclusion is Steve is a PAID companion, and now he is in Europe with his WIFE, & Kate Kan't Kope. How pitiful is that? Where is she? At home, being a more horrible mother than usual, crying in her boxed wine, laying up in her bed, ordering around her nannies, & her man-servants and what-have-yous. She has maybe been canceled, & all this stuff is happening all at once. She is falling apart at the seams. Her little empire is falling down around her.

No mani/pedis/tanning/Target/UPS/gassing her guzzlers/? She is afraid TLC won't be there to pick up the pieces of her shattered world (or the check!) Yeah, I'm being dramatic. It's fun to dream!! :)

Monster Mommy said...

@ Brummygirl...

You are correct, dear! Jon has already told us, that TLC IS paying for the hired help- he got very specific after the split too.

Nannies, personal bodyguard(s) and/or added crew security... personal chefs, maids, PR people, landscapers and regular weekly lawn/grounds care... I know I'm missing a few-- but all paid for by the network. This on top of all the free food, clothing and other "services" (i.e. hair extensions and spa treatments). I highly doubt any of that ceased to exist when she became a RARE woman... A single Mom, doing it all by herself. Yeah, I'm willing to bet Henry's Organic Farm on it.
As for Steve, I'm certain Kate is doing her routine 'Fatal Attraction' drill, with lamp in hand this very minute. Seething that she's not in Europe (driving an even bigger wedge between he and Gina), on a fun free vacation with Purse Boy. *Broken record playing in my head*... Katie Kreider didn't get to go on any fun trips during her crappy childhood.

Boo-hoo... Poor manic Mommy. Your old violin is playing for you, Kate.

Captain of the Titanic said...

Just imagine:

TLC told Kate that they were developing a show where she would get to walk in other people's shoes.

Kate was all gung-ho for the idea because her perception of the concept was that they'd send her to Hollywood and let her actually WEAR the shoes of celebrities.

"Uh oh....sorry Kate, that isn't exactly what we meant."

No Worry, Beef Curry said...

I think it's classic... and I love it.

The skanky mistress gets Mexico, while the wife flies off with Stevie to Europe.

Bwahahaha...

Gimme Gimme said...

She is either in Italy with Steve and Gina - yes if he would drag his wife to Khate's for dinner, they could dredge up some reason for her to accompany them on the trip, or she is having another procedure - maybe a face peel or having butt implants (which I personally think she has already done) or she is with Jamie while Steve is away and they are filming Tasteless Khate. But you can bet she is not home baking cookies. I am done with her after that last round of abuse which just keeps getting worse or worse. No wonder the kids had a breakdown at the McPrison gates.

I find it odd that Kate is constantly on the defense about her 'relationship' (or lack there of) with Steve Neild. IMO, Steve's status is equally being called in to question. I have yet to hear STEVE defend himself as being the loyal husband and father to his WIFE AND CHILDREN!

pinkdiamond611 said...

I totally agree that Kart can not function without Purse boy. I really do feel sorry for the kids because they have no stability in their lives. I am willing to believe that Purseboy actually made the plans for the Nannies and helpers to get the kids off to school. Here is hoping that Jon gets a bigger part in his children's lives and is able to give them the stability and unconditional love they and all children deserve. Anyone who reads this who is connected to the children

Corrin said...

I always felt the reason Steve never denies the affair is because no one believes the person who denies, denies, denies. I kind of wonder if Kate thinks there is more to their relationship then there is. I mean what does he get pout of being with her. I think he is just doing what TLC says because they pay him. I thinnk that once Steve is no longer paid by TLC you won't see him anywhere Kate.

cossysmom said...

"the show initially was touted as being a series of summer specials."

meaning yet another trip to Bald Head Island???

silimom said...

I agree that something is in the works. Last year she got really quiet, we all hoped that it meant the end was near and then she ended up on DWTS.

I just hope the show is truly over and TLC does not order more episodes next summer. Time will tell.

As for Kate making lunches - to be fair, kids tastes do change. I don't think asking the question was wrong. Getting frustrated because they all responded at once in what, IMO, was a typical silly kid response was kind of dumb, again IMO. With 8 kids, she should have expected the response she got.

I probably would have rolled my eyes, shaken my head and muttered "I should have known better. Cara - both, just mayo, just mustard, or nothing?" and then worked my way down the list. Or, to encourage writing practice, you could have the kids write out their lunch preference or create a list for each kid with bread, types of meat and types of condiments and had them check off what they wanted.

For someone who claims to be "Super Organizer Woman!" to the point of being OCD, she's really not, but that's JMO.

Not only isn't she OCD, she just lacks plain old common sense.

If Kate is filming "Twisted Kate", I will be shocked. She can't help herself... let alone any woman in need. C'mon TLC, we're not sheeple! This show will get nothing but negative backlash (starting with the name of the show)... guaranteed.

Well that is a very interesting article, especially about the children's contract expiring in mid October.

IIRC, soon after the big TLC vs Jon breach of contract hoopla, TLC released a statement stating that the 'entire Gosselin family' remain under contract. Considering the fact that the Gosselin children are MINORS and cannot legally enter in to/sign a contract, if the children's contract expired in mid Oct, so did the 'entire Gosselin family' contract. Kate + 8 being cancelled equals ' entire Gosselin family' contract expired. If a new TLC/ Gosselin family contract is being negotiated, there may be some truth to the Perez 'rumor' that Jon is/was unwilling to renew the 'entire family contract'; which would no longer allow his children to be filmed.

Beware of going to RadarOnline...I attempted to check it out Sunday evening and my anti-virus software immediately went into action, my software did locate a virus, so be careful!

Button Button said...

When Kate has made appearances on the different TV shows, she always plainly states that, first and foremost, she is a MOM.

Well, she did give birth to 8 children.

I can't imagine any mom dressing like a Hootchie Mama and still always bragging that she is a Mom.


Hootchie Mama just aint the same thing.

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

Picture this: Kate + 8 is cancelled. Twisted Kate is a no-go. Kate trades the 8 and the house to Jon and Ellen for their one bedroom apartment.

She said a small apartment was looking pretty good when she got mad at the garden hose and the water faucet.

Sounds like the ideal switch -- for everyone!

gherkin said...

It is interesting that Katie Perry is banned from Sesame Street for showing a little cleavage, yet Kate shows way more cleavage on a daily basis to her kids. I have never seen any kind of mother dress the way Kate does! On that last show when they were shoe shopping, Kate was positively falling out of her top! Wonder if Kara and Mady will be able to dress like that when they are teens?

p. Catherine said...

Nope, I see the outfits and they are getting worse, I hear the screaming and it gets shriller and shriller. /she goes fishing and doesn't be the perfect mom and bring sunscreen, jackets, life jackets, towels, change of clothing and she laughs at the vomiting? Know what I think? I think Mom gosselin's got a drinking problem. Can't drink like that and think the next day and her gum chewing? How delusional to pose for People knowing she does not look like that cover....Her buddy at People, Kate whats her name is really trying to help her, but her lies are whipping her around. Well, she just changed from the Mother of the Year obsessed with cleanliness, organizing all the rubber tubs in the basement of freebees and now she can hardly get from store to store with those children. Oh yeah, the Slug has added too much drinking to her list of motherly duties, no doubt in my book. The slug is drinking too much and not able to focus or even be in a good mood the first day of the 8 going to school full time.Kate is a Slug, will continue to be a Slug and does not know those kids. Free the kids from the Slug!

I was in the grocery store today and had to laugh. I had read on GWOP that it was not selling, and that is true in this area (central Virginia) The People rack was full and the first few magazines were turned around. Most of the other magazine racks were less than half full. The People Glee Special magazine was almost sold out.

--Only if someone buys them boobies --just like their Momma's

Yeah, I agree - she's a closet boozer.
A puffy swollen face -- whoppsie - that might be the botox.

Brummygirl said...

If she IS filming a session for Twisted Kate, I hope it is a real doozy. I think we all know this is not what she had imagined in her reach for fame. She only does *nice* things, not something where she cannot wear her 4" heels or low cut tops or deal with icky things like camping and toilet buckets.
You go Kate....go do all the jobs normal folk do every day of their lives without cameras and perks. Go work your heart out and find that it was all for nothing when once again you are cancelled! Given enough time, Karma has a way of catching up!

Nova said...

gherkin asked, when talking about Kate's obsession with showing cleavage: "Wonder if Kara and Mady will be able to dress like that when they are teens?"

I think it's possible, as Kate could see it as flattering that the girls want to be just like her.

But I really suspect that Kate won't let them. She'll try to dress them similar to her, but the skirts will be longer, the tops will not show cleavage and be looser. They'll wear flats or low heals, less makeup and jewelry, and have more average hair styles. I don't think that Kate would let them 'compete' with her if she could prevent it.

Save the Gosselin 8.

Steve will never be out of the picture. From I can gather, he is the trustee of the kids' money.

The Lady is a Tramp said...

You really can't believe anything you read on any of the other sites. The one about what happened to Jon and Kate says that Jon stays at the house and takes care of the kids during his custody, when we all know he picks them up off the side of the road and drops them off there because thier mother won't let their father what is supposed to be their property.

Just like Tony from DWTS was Kate's new BFF last year - he brought her coffee, the kids had play dates - oh yeah and he was PAID to put up with her. One her time on the show was over, so was the "friendship". Steve is making a bundle babysitting Kate.

Laurie said...

Just because ROL reported that Steve & Gina are in Europe doesn't necessarily mean that they are in Europe. Have you seen any pictures of Steve & Gina at airport or anywehre together? I'm sure a picture of them together without kate would be worth something. The story could be a plant to take the heat off Steve and kate due to the Mexico pictures disaster and they've both been told to lay low. JMO

When they were born the Governor gave all the kids full scholarships to any Pennsylvania college of their choice. Medicaid usually makes you pay back all expenses if you ever get big money either earned or inherited like hospital bills, home nurses , food stamps WIC etc. Wonder why Pennsylvania hasn't done that yet?

And how is it that after how many years, Kate STILL does NOT KNOW what kid likes-what on their sandwiches??????

Answer: because she NEVER makes them!!

I think "Twist of Kate" is actually a show about Kate and her "sister wife" Gina, sharing Steve!

my9cats said...

Last 2 cu.....

The governor of PA did NOT provide full scholarships for the kids.
What the state did was open up separate unfunded accounts where people, if they so choose to do, could make donations toward the kids college education.
IIRC the accounts are to be used for state schools only.

I don't know if there actually is money in those accounts
I don't know.

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

It's amazing that this particular mis-information still remains out there. For all we know, there is a measly $100 per sextuplet in those education accounts. Considering how Kate and Jon (but mostly Kate) dismantled much of the good will their fellow Pennsylvanians had for them in the beginning, I am sure any donations to these funds quickly dried up.

LancNative said...

It's been changed. The accounts may now be used for any college in any state.

So I was just watching this sad clip that MyStyle.com made amusing and don't get the whole "what order do we eat our lunch in" thing. Sandwich, veggies, fruit, crunchy things, etc. So are they allowed to take a bite of sandwich followed by a bite of something else and then return the the sandwich or is it finish the sandwich then start the veggies. Finish the veggies then start the fruit. Finish the fruit then start the "crunchy things". I can see saving dessert for last, but this just takes controlling to a whole new level.

Plus do their classmates watch the show and give them crap if they see them eating their crunchy things before their fruit.

Midnight Serenade said...

Where do these rumors come from -- that when they were born, full scholarships were awarded to them?
======================

A TAP account was set up in May of 2005 (a year AFTER they were born) by the late Lt. Governor Catherine Baker Knoll. Anyone could contribute to this account, but Gov. Rendell did not establish scholarships for the children, nor did the state of Pennsylvania assure that their college tuitions were funded.

Jane in California said...

And how is it that after how many years, Kate STILL does NOT KNOW what kid likes-what on their sandwiches??????

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

That was a dead giveaway that others (nannies, etc.) are the ones who normally prepare the lunches for the children. Moms know what their kids like and will eat. It's not like your own children are shy of telling you, 'I like peanut butter and jelly' or 'I hate boloney sandwiches mom!'

Second, why does Kate have to control every minute of those kids' days, right down to the order they eat their lunch items? I hope the children secretly eat their cookies first, then their chips, and lastly their sandwiches, just to be subversive.

Go little subversive Gosselins, go!

At least she'll have eggs... said...

That paragon of honesty, The National Enquirer, has a blurb today about Kart being devastated by Steve leaving her for a vacation with his wife and by Jon's pending marriage to his current girlfriend.

Hmmmmm... could any of this be true?

Once again, "all the folks she loved have left her"......

I've found that ROL is hauling out last year's beach bikini photos to include Kart in "Best Bikini Bods" articles. It seems a desparate way to keep her in the news.

It is my fervent hope that the Twisted Kart show was just a carrot, a talent holder, something that was never really expected to be shown. I hope TLC was just dangling her along to keep her quiet until they signed up the new 5-pack and 6-pack families.

I also think that that Sister Wives show will provide as much controversy as Kart did, so TLC will be able to still brag "we are the best of the worst".

I do wonder how Kart will be able to afford the nannys now. Especially since they would only be getting part-time hours with the kids in school.

Heck, I wonder how she'll be able to afford food, clothes, the house..... medical insurance. The list goes on. At least she will have eggs to eat.

Throw Out The Uneaten Stuff.... said...

As for the order they have to eat their lunch items, I sure hope they are smart enough to throw out any uneaten food at school instead of taking it home in the lunch box.

Can you imagine the hell-to-pay the kids will get if she sees the dessert is gone but the carrots are still there?!

Those poor kids.....

fidosmommy said...

Re: Kate's recent disappearance from sight:

Maybe she's sitting in a financial
advisor's office shreiking "What am I supposed to do NOW? I don't have any of the 4.3 million (or whatever) I got from TLC. Fix this! SAAAAAMMMMMM! Don't you know how to help me either? YOU figure out how to feed 8 kids on
no income. When I get back from my vacation in San Tropez, you let me know what you've decided. I'm done."

Swissmiss said...

I remember reading earlier this year that Kate was working as a waitress for an episode of "Twisted Kate." I also read that the show has been dropped from the TLC schedule.

chick said...

I'm going to indulge a bit of a flight of fancy here, black helicopters and all...

So, Steve is gone to Europe with his wife, there's a custody hearing coming up, Kate's People cover tanked, supposedly K+8 is cancelled, Kate may be looking at serious loss of income (and loss of her tan/mani/pedi/surgery filled days), the kids are in school FT, Jon is making an effort to be mature and not drag private stuff out in the media, plus he has apparently developed a decent relationship.

I think TLC is either setting up a scenario where (or simply hoping that) Kate goes completely off the rails. If she winds up in the mental breakdown lane, just think of what delicious TV that would make!

TLC could televise Kate's "journey to self-discovery", people who love the car wreck would watch, and TLC could salvage something from the trash heap that is Kate Gosselin.

Then, of course, would come the repentence tour to any church that will have Kate speak, and she'll find "true love" with someone, and she will never ever ever truly fade away into obscurity.

http://www.metrowny.com/blogs/archives/626-Has_Kate_Gosselin_lost_her_mojo.html

We can only hope.
She should go crawling back to her family, beg forgiveness, and ask for help raising her kids as a FAMILY. Those poor actors have NO LIFE.

Minka's Tail said...

I'm sorry. I don't want her to go completely off the rails. I dislike her intensely, but she is a mother, and nothing good will come to the kids from her having a nervous breakdown.

The best thing for the kids is if Kate gets a successful show without them on it. Twist of Kate sounded awful--but it may be what the kids need. If her ego is stroked and she can be a "star" without them, she may give them some benign neglect, or even better, move to LA and let Jon have custody. Face it--she's not changing her personality and she's not going back to nursing.

Now who would watch a show with her an not the kids is anyone's guess, besides Baby Mama.

"When they were born the Governor gave all the kids full scholarships to any Pennsylvania college of their choice...."

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

This is currently being repeated on various blogs and internet gossip sites under comments. I would hope that most know it's not true, and that the writer corrects this. In addition, TAP funds may now be used to ANY college and are not limited only to schools in PA:

In part, Lieutenant Governor Knoll's statement (2005) reads as such:

"That is why, for my gift to the Gosselin Family on this very special occasion, I am opening accounts for all eight of the Gosselin children through the Tuition Account Program, which I had a hand in creating when I served as Pennsylvania State Treasurer.

Contributions to these accounts will accrue throughout the children's lives and be available to them once it comes time to attend college.

If you would like to make a contribution to the Gosselin Family's TAP account, you can do so by making your check payable to "TAP 529," writing "Gosselin" in the memo portion of the check, and sending your contributions to: Gosselin Sextuplets and Twins Accounts, TAP Bureau, 218 Finance Building, Harrisburg, PA 17120. More information on the Tuition Account Program can be obtained by calling 1-800-440-4000 or by visiting the Treasury website and clicking on Tuition Account Program."

Jane in California said...

Minka's Tail said:

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

That's just the problem. Kate on her own cannot carry a television show. She's simply too unlikable, not to mention boring.

I don't wish her a nervous breakdown, but I foresee one in her future. She's awfully close already, as we've seen in clip after clip where she screeches at the kids with little provocation. The most recent is when she's supposedly preparing their lunches and barks at them to say the proper order to eat their lunch food. She's hanging on by her fingernails.

One of Kate's many problems is she made this plan on how to have multiples, how to package and market them into a reality tv show, and how to use that show to obtain expensive freebies and as much fame as she could pull in -- but she apparently didn't consider what would happen once the multiples outgrew the cute toddlerhood stage.

I think she resents the heck out of those children, feeling that they "stole" her youth, when it was fully her choice to pursue having multiples. She subconsciously resents them because she could not attain fame and wealth on her own - she had to use them to get those things. Without them, no tv show, no freebies, no DWTS, no paid minder, no bolstering of her fragile ego that she's really somebody.

Now that they've had the nerve to grow out of toddlerhood, despite her best efforts, she's growing frustrated in her efforts to leapfrog off the family show into a career of her own. She wants to be on tv.

I think there was a window of opportunity for Kate to make a successful move from being part of an ensemble show to carrying her own show. She could have refined her image as a busy mom, one who was seeking a healthy lifestyle for her family, a green lifestyle, etc. But she blew it -- she couldn't maintain the facade even on her own scripted show. She lost fans and continues to lose fans. The fans she still has are as unlikable as she is!

The greatest irony of Kate Krieder Gosselin is that she had the focus and determination to go after her dream, but once she got it, she dropped the mask and showed her true colors. She couldn't maintain the facade - it was just too hard to do. If she had only been a little bit better of an actress, most of us TWOP'ers would probably still feel like voices in the wilderness. She is her own worst enemy.

Gimme Gimme said...

It is very strange that she and Steve are laying low at the same time.

Anne said...

ITA Jane! I can't think of any other reality star who has been handed as many golden opportunities to develop a career and, thanks to her total lack of self-awareness to use Carrie Ann's words, has blown every one.

Instead of worrying about the hair, boobs, tan, etc. she should have been working with a good psychiatrist on her personality and maybe some of these opportunities would have panned out into a career.

Sam said...

So can we sing, Ding Dong, the witch is dead yet? Steve on vacation or in hiding. Jon is getting married in 2011 if it's true. TLC contract not renewed, will this lying untruthful self centered witch finally go away and get a real job?

I only feel sorry for the 8 because they have no say in anything. She deserves everything bad that happens to her for all her lying and manipulations. Maybe the divorce judge needs to look at the custody arrangment. Jon go get a good lawyer NOW and go get a real job.

The Lady is a Tramp said...

Can you imagine what would have happened to Kart's career if she had gone on DWTS and even half way tried to dance and appear to be nice and not use every excuse under the sun not to practice including yes the kids. She could have named her own poison. But she was so lazy she let it fall back on the kids to support her lavish lifestyle. Bristol is making a name for herself, and a future, because I think people thought she would rely on her mother and just hang around like Kart did but she busted out and really tried. Even the Situation tried. There will come a time when the kids can't do it anymore. Octomom is having a yardsale to raise cash. How much can one reasonaby expect to raise from a yard sale? I actually feel sorry for her. But yet you have to wonder if Kart might have scored another gig out in Hollywood (as a villain or a DA) as she is known now as the mean mother that everyone loves to hate and they are going after her haters for ratings, because they far outnumber the klovers. She missed a good opportunity to turn that around. DWTS had 37 million. Did she pull that many?

Waitin'4DaBook said...

I still want to know what really has gone on w/Steve the PurseHolder and Khate, if anything. If they really have been doing the dirty, it's been a great success at being hidden! Got to give the P.R. people credit on that one for sure.
I avoid all viewing of Gosselin(s) and dont' buy any mags with HER on or in them, but I just might plunk down some $ if Steve or Gina wrote a tell-all.

Ohio Buckeye said...

JaneinCA: Applauding your summation!

I'm doubting little Katie Kreider was a very popular kid. I'm guessing she has been obstinate, critical, and demanding since early childhood.

I'm thinking she probably saw Mom of Multiples as her way to SHOW the world it was wrong about her. When the world saw that she was a mom of 8, they'd also see how loving and hard working she is, and finally, she'd be vindicated.

And, as you point out, she probably had a pretty good shot at parlaying her Mom of Multiples thing into broader arenas if only she'd have been smart enough to maintain some semblance of joy in her life, her marriage, her mothering. If she'd valued her marriage 1/4 as much as her dream of that "mine, all mine!" mansion and treated her husband as a spouse instead of an unpaid houseboy, had she found a way to be happy in that very nice home they shared prior to The Big Move to the Mansion, had she remained the UNhooker, normal mom type of pretty she initially was, I'm thinking she'd still have something of fanbase.

But Katie is never going to be happy. No matter how much things go her way, she seems to remain feeling empty and, so, continues to need more, More, MORE.

The problem is, K8G is a classic example of 'familiarity breeds contempt' because the more she showed of herself (trying to become a talk show host), the more she shot herself in the foot, because it became more and more obvious that she really IS as unlikable as she probably felt as a kid.

The woman has no talent whatsoever, so her only hope would've been to create a bond with other working moms with kids, facing this economy with determination and the inner peace that comes from knowing who you are. Instead of appreciating what she had, instead of being approachable and relatable, as soon as K8G got a whiff of blossoming 'success', she decided she didn't NEED anyone to like her - she was far too famous and successful to worry about what little town suburban moms thought of her, because she was on to bigger and better things.

Like making an arse of herself on talk shows with her signature weird combination of whining about how hard her life is combined with bragging about how Can Do and Hardworking she is, sprinkled always, of course, with a megadose of bashing her former spouse.

Like DWTS. 'nough said.

Had she just been content to be a small town mom of no real talent, one who loved her husband, her children, her life, the story might've ended differently.

But the saddest part of this entire 'reality' is that K8G is completely out of touch with who she is - she has no real self and, so, she has no sustainable fanbase.

She is absolutely self defeating in everything she undertakes. I feel very sorry for her parents, her sibs, her kids - she's a force to be reckoned with alright: she has made miserable 3 generations.

barnaby said...

It's like all the timing is off. Things behind the scenes are not coordinated for some reason.

The Regis & Kelly bashing of John made no sense. Who booked her and why? Their hearing about the kids is months away. John hasn't been in the news so her comments had no context.

Then the People cover/article should have led to some big announcement last week. Isn't that how it works? Again, no context.

Now the show isn't currently on the schedule. Nor any other show with her in it. If there was a show, shouldn't that have been a part of the People Mag PR blitz?

I find it all very strange. But I'm not digging her grave quite yet.

maynardsmom said...

How ridiculous. The children are not babies anymore. How hard is it to take care of 8 school age kids? If Kate hasn't saved any money for the future so be it. The big house and all the stuff isn't necessary for 9 people. Neither are nannies and bodyguards. Get a real job learn to cook clean and manage. Teach the kids to help. People Do these things. Can't play the I'm a mom of 8 card forever. They are too old. You don't need all the special trips. Your children are no more deserving than mine. Kate may have started out ok, but this whole thing has gotten out of control. I am so over all of them.

Ronda said...

Just heard on the local news that Kate donated her Orange County Chopper to a local charity....I'm guessing she'll be taking a tax write off even though she never paid for it to begin with!

Sport said...

Jane -

That is a brilliant summation. Love it - you nailed everything!

It really is hard to imagine the folks that continually support and 'love' her. She has proven herself to be one very unlikable, snotty, controlling HAG. Hideous on the inside AND out.

Nothing I have ever seen shows her enjoying life, relishing time alone with her kids, or even just smiling at life's little moments. In her desperation to remain relevant and a 'star' (in her mind of course) she is ignoring all that life has given her. Unconditional love times eight.

Like many of you I wait for the day where you see her in normal non-hooker clothing, flying a kite with a couple of them. Maybe on a bike ride. Camping trip. Picnic. ANYTHING normal parents do with their kids, which usually comes about by ASKING THEM what they would like to do...

She has made millions of those 8 little actors, plenty to 'survive' if she downsizes and starts leading a normal, balanced life with them as a single mom.

Get your sh*t together kHate. you only have one go at this thing called parenting. Stop whoring yourself out and start being a mom.

Hippie Chick said...

Kate likes the drama. She is the type of person who likes to surround herself with it.

So, why is she lying low? Hmmm. Maybe she is getting another procedure done. Or maybe all of this drama is becoming too much for her, and she needs to make her big dramatic entrance at the precise time. We can speculate all we want, but until she pops up, we don't know. I honestly think that her world is crumbling & it's all too much, she can't handle it. TLC dropped her like a hot potato, Jon isn't giving her ANYTHING, Steve is AWOL, all of this combined must be driving her crazy. Kate's Karma Katching up? I never wish ill-will on anyone. Even with all the wrong she has done, she still has 8 kids that depend on her, so hopefully she bucks up, realizes that it's NOT ALL ABOUT HER, and musters on. She needs to think about her children. So, her career may be over, she's still a mom. Did she expect to only be a mom until the show got canceled? I really hope that for the kids sake, Kate sees that those kids need her, & she can't keep chasing that fame, when it's over, it's over. Bow out gracefully, or you'll look pathetic & needy. Be a mom FIRST Kate!

Maybe she IS taking stock of what's important right now. Maybe that's why she's in hiding. Who knows? Putting things in priority? Wouldn't that be a nice change of pace. I can see the headline now: Kate Gosselin: A Changed Woman; Back to Real Reality. No More Filming! :) But knowing Kate this is more like it: Kate Gosselin: A Changed Woman: Triple D Boobs and Trout Lips: I Love My New Body & It's All Mine!

After the gross photos of Kate's stretched and wrinkly skin hanging over her bathing suit, I would bet anything she is getting it removed somewhere. Where is she? She doesn't have the confidence to hold her head up high and disregard the public's negative reaction to her fake photos on People. Let's see, what else could get tweaked? Wonky eye, tree trunk waist, belly button sitting 6 inches too high. She should be pissed at the ol' doc for screwing that up royally. I chuckle when I see her strutting her stuff on the beach with that major plastic surgery screw up. Can't they just pull it down and then lop off all that loose skin?

Slam #1...Florence Henderson was introduced as "the most famous mother on t.v."...ouch Kate. Florence at 76 out danced Kate by a mile.

Slam #2...Tony looked so joyous when he danced with his partner. What a difference for him not having to push a big piece of concrete around the floor. I guess he hasn't used ear plugs this year...no screeching or whining!!

Slam #3..Everyone backstage was genuinely backing each other. During rehearsals even though tired, no excuses i.e. I have eight kids to tend to, my husband is suing me, blah blah blah!!!!!

Regarding the "M.I.A.'s", I bet they are together somewhere and the anniversary trip is just a cover. Who do they think they are fooling when no photos appear! Maybe they are at B.M.'s house!! :)

I was at the grocery store yesterday and there was this bright pink stank alone magazine display with the ad that if you would buy a magazine, you would support breast cancer research. On one side was the latest In-Touch Magazine. On the other side was the People Magazine with Kate Gosselin on the cover. There must have been at least thirty copies. It seems even the public won't buy anything on the front of it even if it's for a good cause.

If, according to Kate, it would be impossible for her to undergo cosmetic surgery because the paparrazi follow her EVERY move, where are the paparrazi if in fact she is on location filming Twist of Kate? IMO, Ms. Fame whore would more than welcome an opportunity for the 'paps' to leak a sneak peek preview of Kate on location filming her upcoming new show. Kate claims and blames the paparrazi to be a CONSTANT intrusion in her life, but has certainly acquired the ability to NOT leave her 'trail scent' when she escapes to her hiding place.

All this speculation of where is Waldo....oops, I mean Kate. And yet no one has brought up the possibility that she is simply dealing with the flu or some other illness and is laying low right now because she simply doesn't feel well? It is certainly just as likely a reason we haven't seen her in the news as any of the other possibilities everyone is throwing out there. She could have even pulled a hamstring while running, or whatever else she does.

Just keeping it real.

If Kate wants a career in the public eye, then why doesn't she go back to college and get a degree in communications or something else to do with television? She lives in the vicinity of QVC and if she truly does have the gift of gab as she claims, she could set her sights on becoming a host. I have read that they make 6 figure salaries and have very excellent benefits there. She would be close to home as well, so no long stretches of time away from the kids. In fact, I don't see why Jon doesn't do this as well. He is more personable than Kate and I bet he would make a good QVC host. Seems to me it would be easier than trying to make a career for yourself based on your 35 yo post baby body. Kate didn't have a model figure prior to the pregnancies and at 35 years old, she is coming to the game kind of late. I don't see how she can compete with the 20 somethings figure wise.

Somewhereinoh said...

I think the TV appearance and the People spread was a last ditch effort to save Kate's show. I don't think it worked.

IMO, the People cover and spread was nothing more than self promoted vanity at its finest. Seriously. Does People magazine REALLY think readers are THAT interested in Kate's 'right to look good', earned no less?

Re: Kate "in hiding". I think she's filming Twist of Kate. It's on the schedule, beginning in Nov.
The newest premise is that Kate travels around and sees how other mothers juggle jobs, family and personal time.
***********************
Ah...now that makes more sense. Kate is not swapping jobs, she is merely interviewing other moms etc. It should be interesting when the mothers begin to tell their story and Kate brings it around to herself//me me me!!!
Sorry T.L.C., I think people may have tuned in to see Kate do work but not gab!!!

Regarding the Enquirer's explanation that Kate is in hiding because of heartbreak....I say consider the source!

Isn't that just like Kate? She makes this huge deal about donating an item that she didn't pay one dime for -- only to find that it's of no value to the charity. I wonder if they even tried to sell it and no one wanted the ugly thing.

Hilarious, yet sad. And of course, it never crossed Kate's mind to simply donate some much needed cash to Ronald McDonald House instead.

The last thing that QVC needs is Kate G. and all of the foolishness that comes with her. Their hosts are classy, fashionable, and well-spoken; Kate is none of these things. Plus, I'm fairly certain that Kate would probably think she is too big for QVC - she is a 'stah'!

Is our dear Khate just sitting at home, pouring from the wine box and screaming at those poor kids? Or is she once again being given an opportunity to make money in the limelight?

Love it as the kids are off of TV.

Khate is forever a slug who has ruined the childhood of those children. No turning that backward. Daddy doesn't live there and now the camera crew doesn't live there either? It is a lot of changes in their little lives.Hope they survive.

The National Enquirer is saying that Kate is devasted because Steve has left her to go back to his wife, Gina. AND she is also
devasted that her ex-husband Jon is marrying his girlfriend Ellen next spring.

What 'earned right' does Kate Gosselin have to be devastated over her MARRIED body gaurd returning home to his wife AND children? Most certainly Steve Neild is ENTITLED to have a life above and beyond his duties and obligations as Kate's body gaurd/assistant/purse holder/door opener/shoulder to cry on paid employee. I guess Miss Big Girl I do it all alone, 'single mom' doesnt fair very well when she is forced to function and do things all on her own!

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

1. Maybe the UPS truck isn't allowed on the property for security reasons.
2. Many packages are sent out needing a signature of the recipient. If she's not there to sign when a package is delivered (providing they are allowed on the property) she would have to go to UPS to pick it up and sign for it there. I do this quite often.
3. UPS has boxes to rent for USPS mail delivery. You do not need to go to the USPS post office to pick up your mail. It would be much easier for her to pick up her mail in a box at UPS since she goes there to mail and pick up packages. UPS does not deliver to box numbers.

TLC had announced that K+8 would become a weekly series. After 4 episodes, we're left hanging. I uploaded each to YT, and noticed the vague titles on the TV recording program each week. Tonight was the last airing of K+8 announced, with one being called school time (last week's epi), and the other saying untitled. This is what previous new episodes would say initially, so I thought this may be the last new episode. But instead we were treated to a documentary about the worlds strongest toddler. No Kate on Monday or Tuesday night. No new episodes listed in the next 2 weeks.

Twisted Kate supposedly had 12 episodes ordered by TLC. And the premiere is listed as October 15th. This is the very end of the fall season premiere, but still do-able, and still plenty of time to whore I mean promote herself for the show. I will probably upload it to youtube, but I'm afraid of what the sheeple will say. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twist_of_Kate

I agree with No Worry, Beef Curry. Stop the reality shows. Many years ago we had what was called 'freak shows' in cheap carnivals or two-bit road shows. Today they are called Reality Shows.

The saddest commentary of all is that there is a market for these type shows.

Gawker has done a study of the accuracy of tabloids. The skinny is that Us Weekly comes out way ahead of the others--but their overall accuracy is only 60 percent, with the cover right only about 40 percent of the time.

They refer to Life and Style, which came in second, as "the de facto biographer of the Gosselins," since J and/or K has been on the cover 22 times in the last 20 months.

Star and OK came in last, with accuracy stats in the very low double digits.

Gawker didn't include People, since that mag relies so heavily on "paid-for" placements by publicists.
That cracks me up. Wonder if Kate knows that her "swimsuit issue" was bought and paid for, or if they allow her (like the dog in Bolt) to believe in the realness of her "reality."

Get over it INF. Jon smoking a cigarette isnt breaking news or remotely news worthy for that matter. PUFF.

Changing history said...

Someone was talking about how the old episodes have been edited to remove anything that was at all unfavorable about Kate.

A friend was watching a DVD of season 1 and I saw the episode 10 little pumpkins. Wasn't there originally a major freak out by Kate and her and John got into a fight over the babies playing in a hay area on a zip line? That fight has been removed and this is from their first episode. You can no longer see it on you tube anymore either.

Regarding trips to UPS:

UPS is also a mail drop of sorts for those who don't want things or can't have things delivered to their home address. The packages that she picks up could be coming from anywhere and simply addressed to her at the box number listed. If you look up UPS Stores, they are more commonly known is some areas as Mailboxes Etc. You get a mailbox with a street address so it all looks legit.

My guess is that she does this and the packages she is picking up are addressed to her there. There is 24 hour access to pick up your mail and they will text you (hmmmm...why is she on her phone?) when you have a delivery.

ODG, we can only hope the QVC execs will decide they have enough divas on their hands, with LaLisa and Chatty Patty and Shawn, and avoid Kate like the plague.

Plus, all the show hosts work hard, a completely foreign concept to Kate. And they live and die by their sales numbers. If they're not moving that made in China schlock fast enough, they're history. Would she work the midnight to 7 am hours? Would she chat nicely with the elderly callers who want to tell her they've just bought every single color of those fabulous (fill in the blank)? Would she play nice with the other show hosts? I think we all know the answers.

CAStudioGirl said...

sillyrabbit mentioned:TLC released a statement stating that the 'entire Gosselin family' remain under contract. Considering the fact that the Gosselin children are MINORS and cannot legally enter in to/sign a contract, if the children's contract expired in mid Oct, so did the 'entire Gosselin family' contract


The children could very well have their own distinct contract with TLC and/or any production companies involved in the making of any of their filmed episodes. No TV or FILM companies would permit actors ("reality" or scripted) to work without an "in force" contract. The fact that the document is signed by parents or legal guardians doesn't mean that the child actors themselves aren't bound by the conditions of the contract. It may be true that Kate herself, the Gosselin "family", and the children themselves have distinct performance contracts currently binding, and from what the wild-a** speculation and gossip mags seem to assert, they have Jon bound by a non-compete contract. Almost all filming is "protected" by insurance companies (which cover the production companies financial interest in the event that the "talent" cannot or will not fulfill their roles). Insurers at a minimum require a legal contract (sometimes referred to more informally as a "deal memo") and sometimes they require additional premiums or stipulations if the "star" they are covering has previous discovered behavioral or health related issue "a la Ms. Lohan, Mr Downey, Mr. Sheen".

There is not enough factual information available to us as the general public to speculate on whether hiatus is code for cancelled or hiatus is code for rebranding/re-imagining. However, it will be quite clear one way or the other by Thanksgiving time.

bonehead said...

Perhaps Kate may not be hiding in the sense of hiding, but she is being low key right now. Remember court is coming up, she does not want to do or say anything to ruin her court chances, regarding the children or their continuing being filmed. The court case must be very serious, cause before she would be on any talk show that would have her and whine, bitch and complain about Jon, or bashing him. Too silent! There is a web-site that talks about changes of the already televised episodes to DVD and when they are re-broad cast. The episodes went from an hour to 1/2 hour, a lot was cut out. Perhaps Kate/TLC are getting rid of the negative so Kate looks like a shining clean dime in court. But, we the people know better. JMO

Sure it has other people in it, but it's all about kate, kate, kate & kate. They really have to stop peddling this shrew. Maybe the failure of this show will convince them. Get the reality junk off the TV!

h84kate said...

In regards to old episodes being sanitized, someone referenced the pumpkin episode. In the opening sequence there was a clip showing Kate yelling "hello" at Jon. And in a later episode he clearly recalled at least 2 moments in the show where she did that (in toys r us, and the hay place). She of course didn't remember. But from what I remember they just show that brief clip in the opening sequence, but never showed more of the hay place.

I've heard that the gumgate episode had been modified with some of the yelling taken out to make Kate look less nasty. I don't know if that's true.

When I uploaded the recent episode of surfing where it looks like Kate is smoking in the background I was surprised at how many people noticed that. Out of curiosity I recorded a later airing of it, and you couldn't see "smoking". I don't know if that's because of the computer pixilated edited problems or if TLC actually cut that clip half a second shorter.

Interesting. Of course, Kate and TLC said that it would be airing in July at one point. Who knows if this is just more smoke and mirrors by TLC, trying to keep Kate happy a bit longer, or if they are really going to make a few of these shows and air them. If so, they better get started soon because November is right around the corner.

I don't care if TLC produces a show with just Kate carrying on and visiting hand-picked selfish, greedy, grasping moms like herself. If they want to put money into such a program, then go for it! As long as the children aren't exploited by being on the show as well, then I really don't care.

I don't think Kate can carry a show on her own. If she could, she would have done so already.

Who Is In It? Kate Gosselin

What’s It All About? She’s baaaack … Kate Gosselin returns to the network that brought her fame, fortune and a failed marriage. This time filmmakers follow Gosselin as she travels around the country to find out how other people juggle work, family and all the other challenges life throws at them. Here’s hoping she finds the answer!
Twist of Kate premieres November and features

bonehead said...

Court Jester, I'm referring to the fact that Jon would prefer them not on TV. So, depending on what happens in court could decide, if those kids will continue to be filmed. I know it's got nothing to do with permits, but if Jon proves something about Kate or the way she treats them, what he is gonna have in regards to visitation, will affect Kates show, K8 and filming all together. Jon could be a stinker to Kate demanding that every other week he gets the kids or for several hours after school he gets the kids and every other weekend, that alone would screw up the filming of the kids. I hope Jon screws Kate up so bad, in terms of visitation, that they can't film the kids or if possible, not allow the kids to get those work permits renewed. I guess we will have to wait an see. Kate will have a hissy fit, no matter what the outcome is.

I am afraid that TLC probably banks on the likes of all of us being curious enough to check out Kate on her own show. I haven't watched any of her shows since before the divorce announcement, but I have to admit to being curious to see what this new show is all about and whether or not she could pull it off.

Although, I do suspect if she continues with the shrieking and cackling, I will turn the channel immediately!

Oh I defnitely think that Kate+ 8and Twist of Kate was a two for one deal with TLC IMO, Kate + 8 was negotiated to INCLUDE monetary compensation to Jon in exchange for the 'rights to film his children' and a secondary negotiation for Twist of Kate which EXCLUDES any monetary compensation for Jon . However, the ENTIRE Gosselin family ie Jon would remain under contract for the duration of filming/airing for both shows.

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

there are pictures on INF daily of Jon picking up the kids on Monday or Tuesday.

Mady has on some shoes with a high wedge and a bracelet on her ankle and a short blue jean skirt.

they even suggested that Mady was dressing like her mother.

i just feel so bad for these poor kids.

readerlady said...

I went to INF and looked at the pix of Jon picking up the kids. I love it. No drama, no mashing kids mouths shut, no yelling, no regimentation, just 8 kids climbing into the van with their dad standing by. Mady's decked out like a mini Khate - those shoes are far too old for her to be wearing, but she's obviously keeping up with her violin lessons. Good for her.

Can't See Sheep said...

bonehead, what a terrific idea. If Jon could get them like you suggested, after school for a bit & every other weekend it'd take them forever to get enough footage for just one show. Trying to cram shooting for a single show all in one weekend would likely result in all kinds of problems & would probably end up in Jon's favour once more. I hope he seriously messes up any filming time with the kids. I mean it's not like kate has been terribly nice of accomidating to Jon through all this & I hope he returns the "favour".

I just watched that recent clip of Kate telling the kids which order they must eat their lunches. Oh. My. God. She was so, there is no other way to describe this, effing harsh when she screamed at them to be quiet. What stood out to me the most was the sad and dejected look Cara gave the camera crew when she looked at them after Kate screamed. She was terrified and more than likely mortified with her mother's behaviour. And there is practical Kate, doing what she does best, getting 8 paper plates ready to serve their meals on. I still cannot believe this bitch thinks she shouldn't have to wash dishes because she has 8 kids. Go to hell, you most unlikeable person, and learn how to treat people properly. Shame on you Kate.

She's still in hiding from fame chasing. No fake pap? No annoying articles on ROL?

Oh, my - just the mere suggestion she might ever step foot into QVC is enough to make me shudder. (Don't worry, it was a joke, I believe.)

Hosting takes a lot more skill than it would appear. It also requires coherent sentences and the ability to focus on something other than yourself.
