I can't stand Bryan Masche. His wife is a fool for having any children with him. Both of them seem extremely foolish to me, but I think the mom really does love her kids. Still, I refuse to watch that train wreck.

Twila said...

Bryan Masche:

Dude. I saw that coming a long time ago. He was a ticking time bomb with some major anger issues. And of course he'll blame it all on the stress of having six kids. He is the male Kate Gosselin. If he were female like Kate, he'd have gotten away with domestic violence by just calling it a love tap.



Octomom: Not surprised there, either. Welfare is the exact reason people went berserk when they found out she had 8 kids. It's just kind of sad she is villified for doing the very same thing Kate Gosselin did. Kate gets the cover of People and oodles of love from the media, and Octo gets boos and welfare. Nadia is a complete looney tune, but at least she doesn't act like an entitled snot.

What did Bryan Masche do?

fidosmommy said...

Gee, if he is actually prosecuted on these charges, I wonder if TLC
will stand behind him and continue their show? With this controversial press, people will be tuning in to see the show for themselves, and TLC will have high ratings from it. Of course, that show will not be watched on my TV, but I'm only one person.

Ohio Buckeye said...

Yes, what's up with Bryan M? I don't watch that show, so what did he do? Please tell me he didn't get violent.

With the way TLC operates, you do have to wonder if any/everything heard and seen might just be TLC's pathetic attempt at roping in viewers.

Amy2 said...

I must admit I watched a couple of episodes to see what this family was about. What I saw was a hard working mother and a father who I couldn't figure out. What did he do to earn money? It was all vague. the mother was working nights, getting a few (3-4) hours sleep a night and then expected to get up in the morning to take care of the kids. The good thing is the mother has solid support from her parents who appear to love her and the children. But the father would have flashes of weirdness. Such things as no matter how much the children demanded the mother's attention, he wanted her attention first and didn't step up to the plate to share the workload. After two episodes I never watched again. Something just wasn't right in that household.

RUN JEN RUN back to your parents with the kids.

Someone asked why this topic was opened. People were sending comments through about both people as they were in the news today.

They are off topic for the blog but we occasionally make exceptions and are doing so for a few days for these two.

Bryan was arrested for domestic violence and Octomom is in danger of losing the house and going on welfare.

Autumn Sunrise said...

From the Raising Septuplets website:

"After falling in love with the town of Destin, Florida when they visited five years ago, Jenny and Bryan decide they want to raise the sextuplets there. Jenny loves the beautiful beaches and Bryan admires the good old Southern values."

He may have "admired" them, but it appears that he couldn't uphold them!

Bubbles said...

RE: "Raising Sextuplets"

I just want to clarify that the show is on WEtv, not TLC.

TLC & Figure 8 Films are not affiliated with the Masches.

Lillie Mae Acres said...

ENOUGH with the multiples. They aren't as "special" and "rare" as they once were because of all this in vitro stuff. They are NO LONGER an act of nature, it's a risk that the parents take to undergo these treatments.
The world has seen enough and it's time to move on to another family subject as far as reality shows. Maybe we can get the comedy sitcoms back!
These families all just do it for the $$ and they should be ignored and left to raise their kids just like you and me.

Reese said...

Bryan Masche's show "Raising Sextuplets" was on the WE network, not TLC.

They are now cancelled. Not doing anymore shows.

His father is an angry man, as well. I'm sure Bryan was raised that way. He's a spoiled rotten brat who has NO business having any children, let alone showing people how he raises them. I'm not so sure he even loves them all that much. He acted like they were such a nuisance.

fidosmommy said...

Thank you for the clarification, Bubbles. I guess I was confusing that show with Quints by Surprise, which is on TLC. I haven't watched either show.

It's all a blur to me. So many shows about multiple births.

Tami said...

The sheeple are sick. One had the audacity to say Kate had a strong work ethic and too much pride to go on welfare. Ummm..NO words..just no words for that!

Bubbles said...

RE: "Quints by Surprise"

Speaking of which, looks like Jon&Kate Plus 8's early sponsor, EMTanner, has found a new family to show off their designs.

From EMTanner Designs on Facebook:
check it out=):
"The things I learn as a quint dad...someone mentioned on our FB page that "Em Tanner" mentioned us and said it was a big deal. Of course, Casey knew you, but I had no clue. I've learned you are a big deal and you make really cool kids stuff! Haha."
needless to say...their world is gonna get EMTannerized ...

Why do I get a feeling this family saw the Gosselins, were blessed with HOM, and wanted to follow in their footsteps?

silimom said...

I think Bryan Masche definitely has issues. As was mentioned, it's very clear that he learned his behavior from his father (at least the way it was presented on the show). They did attend counseling and hopefully that will continue for Bryan.

Jenny Masche is fortunate, however, in that her family is very involved and supportive. If she needs to stay with them while Bryan gets his act together (if he can) or she divorces him then she will.

Background on their family: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raising_Sextuplets

silimom said...

I don't know what to say about Nadya Suleman. Honestly - the most loving thing she could do for her children would be to probably put them up for adoption. Either that or she needs to ask the State of California to help provide them with foster care while she gets her life together.

I truly hope she doesn't take the porn offer, but I could see why it would tempt her.

Having multiples is not a way to fame and fortune. These are real people we're talking about here - not dolls, not television props. I'd like to see more discussion in the media about this topic, specifically people having children to become famous and ways we can regulate the infertility business - for example, we should all write our legislators and fight for health care reform that would require insurance companies to cover IVF treatments.

Donna said...

I read that Bryan Masche was actually arrested at his MIL's house and that the home they moved to in Fla. was actually a rental amd is now in foreclosure. This guy has some serious issues. I feel bad for his wife and kids. He and Kate should get together and go toe to toe to see who could be Head Jerk of the Multiples/Masses. Here's Kate's Mr. Right!!

pinkdiamond611 said...

Hopefully a serious news organization will finally do some sort of expose on the families, including the Gosselins, examining their motivation for having these high order multiples.

_______________-

Um...she took taxpayer's money when she received support for the tups the first year of their life, then had the nerve to petition the state to keep the funding going, blaming society for making multiple births possible and therefore it was society's responsibility to provide.

I'm still waiting for her to pay back the state so I can get my refund! LOL!

If she had her way, PA would still be paying for those kids.

Yep...that's a strong work ethic!

==================================
As we know, Kate had no problem with receiving public assistance for several years. When PA wanted to remove the state paid nurse after the tups tuned one, Kate's "pride" also did not prevent her from publicly fighting the state by going to the media and appealing the decision three times. Which, much like her recent verbal assualt of Jon on "LWR&K", backfired immensely.

Who in the world is Bryan Masche???!!

I am NOT in the loop - obviously.

readerlady said...

Um, didn't Khate and Jon receive public assistance in the form of heating subsidies and other help (food stamps?) at some point too? I seem to remember reading this somewhere or hearing Khate talk about it. She also didn't have too much pride to go to various church groups and speak and then beg for "love offerings", even while negotiating to purchase the 1 Mil.+ home.

Jane from PA said...

The info about Bryan Masche is on ROL.

Donna said...

The arrest happened in Arizona. I wonder if the Florida adventure is over? The sheeple are saying that Bryan Masche is 'losing" it like Jon. Say what you want about Jon but I do not recall HIM ever being accused of violence.(Kate yes, Jon no) Probably Jenny had enough of his BS and Bryan had a hissy fit because he couldn't have his way. When people go for these multiple births they really need to weigh all the stressful factors.

Hippie Chick said...

The Masche's aren't on TLC. They are on WE or something, nut IMO, if they were on TLC, that frigin channel would keep them on for the damn press and the attention he is getting. Look at Kate! She gets tons of negative press, and they eat it up! I would say as long as no one is blatantly beating the kids, it's A-OK in their play-book. Sick-o's.

silimom said...

Re: the house. Actually, Bryan Masche twittered ""wound up not being able 2 close on it n lost the house due 2 forclosures of rentals we owned in az" and "have not moved yet but we will have 2 yes"

I think that Bryan seems like a rather unhappy person and moved his family to Florida thinking it would make all of his problems go away. Obviously it didn't. I'm sure the financial stress he's under contributed to this latest meltdown.

RAISING SEXTUPLETS:
I posted on the Raising Sectuplets website about a month ago that I had a feeling that the house in Florida was a rental and the whole move was staged by WETV to make controversy between Bryan and Jenny. The show made it sound like Bryan picked out this very small house all by himself when all the time it was probably WETV that already had it for them. So fake and staged. His twitter page says they went back to Arizona for two months with the excuse of attending two weddings. Who can leave their house and jobs for two months? Now it all makes sense- the foreclosure maybe is the reason they went back to Arizona because now they have no house. JMO
I also posted how disgusted I was when WETV aired Bryan pulling one of his babies away from its
grandmother's arms and the baby's arm was obviously stuck in between them and the ANGER that Bryan showed at that moment. SO heartbreaking. :(
Also in the same episode WETV showed Bryan continuously calling Jenny's name and when she did not answer right away he GRABBED her arm and spun her around to get her attention to listen to him. Not good at all.
Also he put one of the baby girls in time out in the bathroom for spilling blueberries (she might of did it intentionally) with the door closed and left her there for a bit of time. When she was allowed out they discovered she had wet her pants and had been sitting in there like that. Unacceptable!!
Yet another family gets paid and famous for treating their children like this.

SaNdY said...

I watched Raising Sextuplets and was extremely disturbed with Bryan Masche's behavior...it's obvious that Bryan had absolutely no role model in his dad, because his dad treats Bryan rudely and with no respect at all....that being said, it is also no excuse for Bryan to treat his wife, kids, and other family members the way he has.....it breaks my heart that ANOTHER 6 kids have to endure being filmed (not sure if their series is ended or will continue) along with having a violent, abusive parent...

Tami said...

I completely disagree that Nadya should give up any of her kids! She had them and it is too late. To voluteer to put them in foster care even will probably mess them up emotionally. People need to help her now. You can't put the genie back in the bottle. No one told Kate to give up her kids when they had to beg for money before they got a reality show. There are so many people out there who either are too poor but keep having kids or just are not good with kids and have them. And no one goes around telling them to give their kids up, but because she's a known person in the media, people always offer that solution. No one should have given her fertility treatments to begin with. Now she should get just as much help as any other needy family out there. I really wish the woman could get some help.

Nothing comes free for me said...

In my opinion Jenny and Bryan wanted to be on TV~ Here are some interesting facts.
-The first time I appeared on TV is when Bryan asked me to marry him on national television at an Arizona Diamondbacks baseball game.(jennymyspace)
-We also appeared on TV early in my pregnancy on the Today Show.(jennymyspace)
-And they traveled to Los Angeles to film "Deal or No Deal," won $121,000 and received an additional $100,000 donation toward the children's college funds.
http://www.christianitytoday.com/momsense/2009/marapr/upclosenpersonalwithjennymasche.html
I will just try and find a job after working for 37 years and now laid off to pay for my children's college tuition. It is such a shame what these families of multiplies get.

Babies said...

You have to say one thing for Nadya Suleman--you do not see her or her children plastered all over magazines or on talk shows anymore. It is almost like she had disappeared. She is keeping them more private now.

Raising Sextuplets is canceled. They aren't filming a new season. Not sure if it was WE's decision or the Masche's, but Bryan said on The Today Show last month that they aren't gonna film anymore.

That is, unless TLC snatches them up now because they are a messed up family, and messed up families are what TLC does best.

Kool said...

Bryan Masche is another reality show whackadoo. He was angry with Jenny because she wouldn't support him running for Arizona Senator just after the 6 babies were born.
He would never be home. But HE got angry with HER about it. She should've been angry with HIM for even thinking about it.

Could you just imgaine him being an elected senator? As spoiled rotten and hateful as he is? And now with a DV charge against him?

He lives in a fantasy world. He's like a little kid who wants to be an astronaut when he grows up.

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

It isn't really her choice to keep her life private. People have left her alone because there is no mistaking her fragile mental health.

The woman is truly very out of touch.

The poor thing has admitted she really had no idea what this life would be like, and she has regretted what she did.

She said how hard it is to give any of them enough attention.

I don't know what the answer is, but she needs help for herself and for her kids.

It truly is a terrible tragedy.

Yep...that's a strong work ethic!

++++++++++++

Umm, did the Gosselins pay for Kate's prenatal, postnatal, delivery, 30 weeks on bed rest?

Did the Gosselins pay for the specialized care the babies received in the NICU?

Could they even pay it NOW?

The Gosselins were cared for VERY well.

Also, by the way, Octomom got lots of care for herself and her babies, and few families anywhere could actually pay for that type of care.

Strong work ethic, yep, fer sure.

-----------------------------
I totally agree-those kids did not ask to be born and they are the innocent victims in her plan-she just did the same thing as Kate in using them for fame and money. But I feel sorry for her because nobody will touch her with a ten foot pole! For the sake of the kids I wish she had a church or support group that would help her for free-she is desperate and those little ones are the ones suffering.

Sidney said...

WOO!

Picture this...Bryan Masche and Kate Gosselin married to each other and having sextuplets.

Who would be the first of this couple to be arrested for domestic violence?

Such a scary thought...

Brazen Hussy said...

If they had been married to each other, they never would have had sextuplets. They would have killed each other long before any babies were born.

"The sheeple are sick. One had the audacity to say Kate had a strong work ethic and too much pride to go on welfare"

Sheeple are nuts. She's taken freebies from anyone and anything that will willingly give to her cause. She took cash donations from guillible, generous parishioners and never thought twice about it. How is that any different than accepting welfare? For her, it's free money.

cpmomm said...

I admit I was watching Raising Sextuplets on WETV on Thursday nights.
Bryan and Jenny frequently go to marriage counseling. Generally part of the counseling session is shown during the show. During one session the doctor addresses Bryan's RAGE issues. Not ANGER but RAGE. Sounds like a problem to me. How desperate for fame and money to allow the discussion of your rage issues to be discussed on TV in front of millions of viewers. So so sad.

can't stand Khate said...

You know who raised 6 well adjusted teenagers? Becki Dilley.

She kept her kids out of the limelight for the most part. All are beautiful, healthy, employed teenagers. And Becki didn't need a red carpet to make it happen.

NoUse4Kate said...

As far as Nadya goes, she is not dealing with a full deck. I am not for children being taken away, but in her case...I really don't know. She should at least have someone living with her full time that can monitor and report to the courts what is going on. She allowed her children to live in filth before the 8 were born, I can't see how that would change with the adding of 8 more.

There are videos out there of her other children and they are sad to watch. The special needs child just roams around without direction, it breaks your heart to see. Then you have the curly haired boy, Caleb(?), who swears, uses the F word, hits people, including his mother, and he was just a little squirt when he was doing this and she didn't seem to even notice it. Then you have the time that she called 911 because one of her children was missing and she went all psycho on the call, she is really "not there," and those children have a slim chance of making it in life without serious issues with her as their only parent.

I do think that Nadya is a little mentally off and after the media started finding out things about her they dropped their fascination with her. Look at what she did to her face in order to try to look like Angelina Jolie, she can deny it, but there are before and after photos of her and Nadya did not always look like she does now. Her parents are just as crazy as she is from videos I saw of them. I followed her a bit for the first year but could not continue to do so because it really was just mind boggling to watch. It was so irresponsible for the doctor to allow her to use all of her stash, especially when he knew she had 6 to take care of already with no father. He got his 15 minutes of fame who cares about the kids. :(

Just wondering said...

I think there is more to Jenny being able to take 2 months off from work than we know. This is just my opinion but it is something to think about. I wonder if Jenny was release from her contract at the hospital? With the show on WETV their lives are an open book. She admits publicly that she is very stressed, tired often from taking care of the babies and working, she has a reality show that takes up some time, her husband is bringing a lot of controversy with the way he acts and the things he does on the show. Most importantly maybe the hospital questioned her ability to completely focus with all this going on. She has to make diagnosis', order tests and write prescriptions. The controversy of the show could of been bringing bad press to the hospital. Or maybe she was losing too much work time talking with the patients about her babies and the TV show. Something about this is not right. Please remember this is just my opinion and I do not have any concrete details to back it up although Sacred Heart Hospital Emerald is looking for a PA on call in the ER. Just saying....

Gimme Gimme said...

Nadya's doctors' trial is set to begin soon. Maybe this will help put a stop to people making babies to get fame and wealth.

Protect8 said...

I saw two episodes of the Masche family show and in comparison to the Gosselin show found it equally, if not more, disturbing.

Bryan Masche is emotionally abusive toward Jenny and the children. Jenny seems very afraid of him and her attempts to bolster his ego comes across more as trying to prevent his "rage." His roughness with his children has been parodied on The Soup but at this point it would be difficult to see the humor in any of it. His move to FLA came across as an attempt to isolate Jenny from her family support system. No surprise that the arrest occurred at her mother's house.

Another site posted Bryan's tweets and his political rants suggest a deep paranoia on his part.

This is one case where Jenny should get out as fast as she can in order to protect herself and her children.

bonehead said...

Actually, Octo mom was on Oprah, several months ago. She was not paid by Oprah. She was on remote location. She admitted to biteing off more than she could chew. You know the phrase: Wanting is not the same as having. She woke up very hard. I do feel for her in that respect. She thought that oh how wonderful to have a house full of kids. She said that if she could go back, she would not have planted all the of the embros at once. She said she was not thinking, clearly. And will not use her kids for self gain. And so far she has not.

CakeIsGreat said...

I actually feel for Nadia. I don't put her in the same class as Jenny, Kate, ect. To me she belongs in the same category as those messed up teenage girls on talk shows who want to have kids so they can "have someone in her life to love" and they will "fill a void." I am not saying it is OK to have kids for that reason, not at all, but I think she needs serious emotional help. Its ironic she's the one dubbed as the famewhore by the media, when I think she wasn't motivated by fame. She wanted the attention of children, not media, and is in need of serious medical help, not a good slap in the face and orders to go to WORK and stop pimping out the kids, like Jenny and Kate. Her parents don't seem all there either. I feel really bad for her and the kids.

Bryan Masche... anyone who's seen the show could see this coming. There were many mentions of his "anger" and "rage", he's physically taken control of the kids in the past (once ripping one from his MIL, another time *dragging* one of the girls to bathroom for time out, and if they had actually been paying attention to her, they would have seen what she did was by accident, to make it even worse.) They've already spoken to People about this "incident" and claimed that God will be the judge of them and there will not be a divorce because God doesn't believe in divorce! I serious doubt God believes in calling your wife retarded (which he's done), too. But whatever helps to evade responsibility, I guess. God must also support going to magazines to profit off your bad behavior instead of taking real steps to get help. Who knew?! Yes, his dad does seem... hard. But for some reason I cut him slack. He seems angry at Bryan a lot, but Bryan also gives him reason to be angry. For example when they decided to move (after the dad re-did the house they were in for them, no less) Bryan was like "just come to FL to be with your grandkids." Bryan's dad reminded him he has three others and Bryan outright said "but my kids outrank them"! The dad was furious and made it very clear that, no, they do not. All his grandkids are equally special and deserving of having grandma/grandpa around and that they were the ones taking the kids away from their whole family, and that Bryan and Jenny "forget [they] have other grandkids and need to remember that." Bryan of course had a hissyfit about it. I think he's had to put up with a lot of s*** from Bryan, especially since the 'Tups were born. He's been changing careers like a confused college kids changes majors his whole life. Then whenever Bryan gets called out on his behavior he'll look for a way to throw his dad under the bus. As of now Bryan and Jenny don't have real jobs (despite what Bryan tries to hype on his twitter) and the dad is letting him help on contracting jobs for money. Bryan also claims there will be another season of the show as of a few weeks ago (after the Today Show) so we'll see how WE decides to handle this.

Jane in CA said...

I hope Bryan Masche gets some jail time for his abusive behavior and is court-ordered to get counseling. I hope his dope of a wife finally wakes up and smells the coffee, and divorces him. I hope he only gets supervised visitation, if that.

I'm very disgusted with Jenny - first of all, what did she see in Bryan to begin with? Her judgment is clearly way off. Even at his best, he's a jerk. Second, she goes and has multiples with the idiot? Then she allows him to treat her and the kids like dirt? Wrong, wrong, wrong. I hope she acknowledges her role in this huge mess, apologizes to her family for all she's put them through, and gets some counseling herself.

I've had friends in abusive relationships. What woke most of them up? When the abuser turned their rage toward the children. A lot of abused women can find ways to justify the abuse when it's directed at them, but suddenly wake up with it gets turned toward their child. I hold out some hope that Jenny Masche will be one of those women, but ugh. So much of this is equally her fault.

I hope Nadia gets some help too - she definitely needs one or two live-in helpers full time. I don't think she's working with a full deck, but I think she's not mean-spirited like Kate or like Bryan Masche.

I hope her doctor gets serious jail time as well as fines and loses his medical license. I hope this sends a strong message to other irresponsible and greedy infertility doctors out there to knock it the hell off. Anyone could have seen that Nadia was not thinking logically and should NEVER have been implanted with another embryo, much less many of them at once.

In fact, thinking about it - I think that the doctor should be ordered to pay for live in nannies for Nadia, if nothing else.

And finally, I hope the public has gotten their fill of these exploitative family reality shows and turns the channel, giving all of them dismal ratings.

Donna said...

I totally agree with CakelsGreat. Bryan is a spoiled brat who willingly blamed his father for alot of his problems. Guess what? There is a point in your life where you have to accept life for what it is and deal with it responsibly. Bryan cannot keep blaming all his issues on his father. Many people have overcome much worse!! Persobally I do not think Bryan's dad is the monster Bryan paints him out to be. I think he is a dad who could of done better at times (like every parent in the world) and now as a grandparent sees the errors in his ways and is trying to be there for his son. Bryan needs to realize he is responsible for these kids now and man up!! I am sorry but I get sick of everyone always blaming other people for their behavior and choices!!

K8STFU said...

I don't watch the Masches but from everyone's comment it seems like Bryan is another spoiled, self centered brat who refuses to take any accountability for their actions.

I am not trying to sound insensitive. I am lucky enough to have had a pretty normal and happy childhood and feel very sad for those who haven't (some of the personal stories on this blog alone have made me teary eyed ). I understand that our childhoods very much molded us into the adults we are today.

That said, I get a bit weary hearing the Bryans and K8s of the world blame everything and everyone else for their poor behavior. Open your eyes and look around. You really don't need to be an a$$hole to succeed in life.

Ok, rant over.

luv my GSP said...

Hi! Just discovered that Bryan Masche was arrested over the weekend on domestic violence charges while he was visiting his family in AZ. I don't kow how to paste a hyperlink, so just Google Bryan Masche arrested. A bunch come up.


Oh Boy. I really like Jenny. I hope she can deal with this. She should divorce him. He's sooo mean.

Monster Mommy said...

@ Jane in CA...

I can't stand Bryan Masche either... What a fool. I knew it was only a matter of time before the "Raising Sextuplets" train wreck would spiral out of control- just like Jon and Kate. I really feel sorry for Jenny's parents, having their son-in-laws' arrest made public in the Camp Verde Bugle (their local paper). It's a small senior community in AZ, and I'm sure they are humiliated.

Thank you to our Moderators, for giving us a temporary place to talk about topics a little off subject. I needed to get my contempt for the "Masche Monster" off my chest. Yuck, what a huge loser. Six toddlers and Daddy's having a fit, just like 'em!

Bananarama said...

Nadia's doctor should be court ordered to pay her child support for the next 18 years.

In a way, he's the one who fathered them. He just used someone else's juice. He should be financially held responsible for the results he helped to create. He is just as responsible for this as Nadia, and needs more than his medical license slapped. He needs his wallet slapped, too.

I think all doctors who carelessly aid in creating multiples, such as going ahead with an IUI even though the woman has hyperstimulated ovaries, should pay up and help support the litters they played a huge part in bringing into the world.

SafetyTrain said...

I watched the Masche's show a couple of times, and he scared the crap out of me. I would never ever ever leave my child alone with him - I would leave her with Kate before I left her with him. The way he manhandled those kids when he was angry was borderline abusive. I wonder about the scenes that DIDN'T make it to television and also wonder if his behavior was the real reason the plug was pulled on the show. These shows have got to stop. All of these "well adjusted" parents are turning out to be rage-aholics, fame-whores, boys who never grew up, or cult members who have no self-control and keep their adult female children subservient to them. These shows are glorifying the WORST parents among us and its all just become a stupid race to find the next unusual family to put on display. Face it, no "normal" parent would choose to do this to their family.

CakeIsGreat said...She wanted the attention of children, not media, and is in need of serious medical help, not a good slap in the face and orders to go to WORK and stop pimping out the kids, like Jenny and Kate.

****************************
I totally agree. Nadya wasn't shopping for reality shows before getting pregnant. I believe that she thought she was only going to get one baby out of the last procedure and I believe she sincerely regrets her mistakes. She has some serious issues going on, which leaves her kids open to all kinds of struggles, but I don't think she set out from the beginning to become a famewhore like Kate did. The public backlash against Nadya had more to do with her being poor and on public assistance more than anything else. I blame the doctor who performed the procedures more than Nadya herself. All he cared about was taking her money and running. He took advantage of a clearly disturbed woman. I hope he loses his license.

Sidney said...

I hope Nadia gets some help too - she definitely needs one or two live-in helpers full time. I don't think she's working with a full deck, but I think she's not mean-spirited like Kate or like Bryan Masche.

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

Nadya does have a team of nannies who are hired to help her 24 hours a day.

She is not alone, and it would not be physically POSSIBLE for any one person to give any kind of care to her brood.

She has received welfare since before her last babies were born. But she doesn't call it welfare, as that isn't what she considers it.

She has had some education in mental-health, as she was planning to be a counselor or a psychologist, or the like, so she does know the lingo that makes some people believe she is really sane.

She's not.

She actually thought she could take care of all their monetary needs after she finished her schooling, got some kind of license, and got a good high-paying job.

She actually thought she could take all her kids with her when she "went back to school."

To her, the nursery at her college would care for all of her children while she was taking classes.

It would have been nearly impossible for her to even get them all in her car, buckled in, drive to school, get them all unbuckled and out of the car, into the school nursery, return to the nurser, get them all back to the car, buckled .....

Well, you get the picture.

Her case is extremely pathetic.
She isn't the same kind of "crazy" that Kate is.

Before Nadya's babies were born, she absolutely thought she could get her own show. That is documented in her own words.

After the babies were born she thought she could raise them all by herself by money she made as some type of social relations person.

She talked-down her own show, and said that Kate was using the Gosselin kids and she would not do the same.

She can talk the talk, but she is very empty upstairs.

Widowed Young said...

I agree that Nadya has emotional problems and her doctor should not have done the last procedure given her situation.

What makes me so angry is that at least the other families appear to actually have fertility issues-most tried for years before seeking help.

UNLIKE KATE GOSSELIN-she went for treatment 6 months after they were married. I recently read Multiple Blessings after picking it up at a thrift store and at one point she states something about relating to the pain that anyone who experiences infertility feels-she did not experience infertility.

My parents tried for 10 years before adopting my brother and 3 years later me. They went through a grueling process and huge costs (this was in the 60's) to have a family. Kate had an agenda from the beginning and stepped on whoever got in her way-she has put it out in print-do you think the kids won't figure it out when they are older?

The mug shot of Bryan Masche leaves me speechless....who grins ear to ear like that after being arrested for allegedly terrorizing your family? Dude needs serious help.

Jane in CA said...

. Bryan is a spoiled brat who willingly blamed his father for alot of his problems. Guess what? There is a point in your life where you have to accept life for what it is and deal with it responsibly
----------------------------

I couldn't agree more. Sometimes life gives you a really lousy beginning. But if you can survive it, then turn it around when you are an adult. You can either let your tough/rough start hold you back, or you can use it to propel you toward a better life.

I remember hearing the story behind the jockey who rode Seabiscuit - Red Pollard. As a kid, his family lost everything in a terrible flood, and (depending on where you read about it) either his father or a friend of the family basically left him at a stable in the States while he was still under the age of 18, to make his own way in the world.

Masche probably did have a bit of a rough go with his father, but you'd think that if he was really tormented by it, he'd not repeat the pattern with his own kids. I think he's an insecure man (with reason), and he takes out his anger on his wife and little kids.

If he wife takes him back, she's just asking for things to go from bad to worse.

Right, I forget where I heard/read this, but it said that every time the doctor implanted embryos in her, he would put in 6 and only one would survive. It wasn't until the last time that all 6 not only survived, but two of them split to make 8 total.

So to me, at least she wasn't purposely trying to have that many babies at once. In Kate's case, I think she duped the doctor, and in Nadia's case, I think the doctor took advantage of her.

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

I couldn't agree more. Yes she may have six kids & that might seem more than a little scary, but I think returning would be far more frightening in the end, especially if he's smiling in his mugshot after being arrested for domestic violence. That is just all kinds of wrong. There is also a deadness to his eyes, an emptiness may be a better word.

I haven't watched this show, only saw that ads & that was more than enough to keep me away. I really do think she needs to take those kids & get a divorce. It sounds like Jenny is still in good with her family, she'd have them as a support system & I believe she could make it on her own with the kids if she truly wanted to. I can't see how returning to him would be a good idea. From everything I've read so far on the internet he sounds like the male version of kate.

Same here. My baby is the age of her 8 and I don't know what I would do. He is already high maintenance. I'm not sure what I'd do with 8 of him.

silimom said...

This is completely off topic but I just have to say

DANCING WITH THE STARS ROCKED TONIGHT!!!

I loved, loved, LOVED Jennifer Grey!!!

And I have to say, even those who got 15 - even The Situation, whom I am no fan of whatsoever (not a Jersey Shore fan AT ALL) - danced hands down better than Kate did her first night. Why? Because THEY WANTED TO BE THERE and they were willing to work at it!

Oh, and by the way Kate - Kurt Warner has 7...read that SEVEN kids. You're not all that unusual with your 8, even if 6 of them are sextuplets. People have large families all the time. What was maybe something special and interesting when they were babies and toddlers (i.e. juggling diapers and feedings) is just everyday life now. Give your kids their freedom. You can try and be an entertainer if you want. Let your kids just be kids.

This season of DWTS is going to be so good! (doing the happy dance)

No Worry, Beef Curry said...

DWTS was GREAT... sans KATE!

So glad that lying nut job is nowhere to be seen, this season. All of the contestants tonight, performed better than Kart, the night she was eliminated. Funny how "can-do" can't put an ounce of effort into anything, but looking like a common cheap street whore.

Hmm... Take care of your kids, you miserable shrew. Stop trying to re-live your 20's... and crappy childhood.

Lastly- it's official. Your big, fat, crusty feet, attached to those cankles are a SIZE 9!

5 and a half dancing shoes?... My arse.

Tizzie said...

Has / does anyone here watch Quints By Surprise? I'm outside the US but I came across 2 episodes online a few days ago. That couple is WAY better than Jon & Kate.

3 things I've noticed so far - they downsized their home because they couldn't afford it, they donated a lot of toys & baby equipment to needy families, and the kids get to see their grandparents (and vice versa).

Looking forward to more episodes :)

faline said...

DWTS was awesome! Florence Henderson is 76! She did an incredible job. And the LA football stars wife gave the female judge who was drooling over her husband quite the look!

I have no trouble tuning out Kate Gosselin. There is nothing to admire.
No entertaining factor, nothing.

Kitty The Dog's Blog said...

Bryan Masche's mug shot is so creepy! I totally agree with the previous poster - who smiles like that in a mug shot?! He obviously has issues. Maybe he's in on something we don't know about? He looks like the Cheshire Cat. Creepy!

No Worry, Beef Curry said...

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

Agree with everyone who said DWTS was great last night. No miserable, entitled, delusional, wooden shopping Kart - yay!!!

The "worst" one in my mind was The Situation because he behaved rather badly during judging. However, I laughed right out loud when Len, without missing a beat, told him "you've got the guns but you don't have the ammunition!" I also believe Bruno told him sassing the judges would not go over well (and to basically knock it off). I hope the guy listens, but he's got wood for brains.

Still and all --- it was such a pleasure to watch the show knowing Kate is nothing but a bad memory now.

Jennifer Gray was lovely and I hope she lasts a long time. Seemed like for last night at least, she helped calm Derrick down a bit.

Bristol Palin - oh, what to say. Poor girl is clearly uncomfortable with her body, and I wonder if she's ever danced before at all. I wasn't shocked by her outfit, but I was very surprised, since she claimed she'd be dressing the most conservatively. I guess that plan flew out the window right away lol! I don't think she'll last long - what sort of fan base would she even have?

Thank you mods for this Off Topic section!

Geri said...

They just reported on Inside Edition that last night's DWTS ratings were up 18% more than last year. I recall Kate bragging that she boosts ratings. Not so much, Kate.

I think the 5 1/2 size shoe is a lie, pure and simple. I wear a size 5 1/2 or a 6 in US sizes, which is a 4 - 4 1/2 in European sizing. A size 5 1/2 in European sizing is the equivalent of a size 7 in US sizing. Since Khate asked for a size 8 1/2 or 9 at the shoe store, either she was wearing dance shoes a couple of sizes too small for her, which could help account for her abysmal performances, or she lied. Given her track record, you know which I'm voting for LOL.

I don't watch TLC. My question to viewers, is whether this family is cute, nice, normal, charity-minded...et al....Aren't these parents, whether they are the 'best' parents in the universe, still EXPLOITING their kids by placing them on a tv show? And how is this considered normal, to view another set of parents raise their children? What about the children's rights to an innocent childhood?

NO reality shows should have minor children on them for our 'entertainment'. PERIOD.

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

Thank you txmom, this is my pet peeve with people who talk about the other families like the Duggars & think they are just the most wonderful parents. So much nicer than that kate Gosselin dontcha know. Not if their little kids are on TV they're not. Child exploitation is child exploitation & I'm tired of hearing excuses & seeing parents being given a pass because they SEEM nice or nicer than kate. It's TV, realistically you don't know what those parents are like because they can edit to make a person look like Attila the Hun if they want. Minor children are NOT entertainment.

jonandkatewho? said...

I decided to watch the new Quints by Surprise on youtube despite agreeing with the posters here who have said they disagree with having children on reality shows.

I have to say this is a beautiful family. The kids are absolutely adorable, much more so than any other group of multiples we have seen, in my opinion. The parents seem like such nice people, and their love for their children is obvious.

I hope they do not stay too long at the TLC party. I think being on these shows is a recipe for disaster for any family. I really hope this family pulls out of reality tv before any harm is done, and that they are successful in whatever else they decide to do in life. Tempting as it would be to follow these nice young people and their lovely kids, I would not be a regular watcher because I don't want to promote this type of exploitation.

go away gosselins said...

Watched the "Sextuplets in NY"...what an adorable family! The kids are just as cute as the Gosselin kids were---but better behaved. You can see that they are in a stable home. The family is so nice and hard working. I love them.

I hate to do it, but I am going to have to never watch them again, because it isn't good for their family to be on tv! I want them to stay a nice, lovely family!

go away TLC said...

Oh my gosh...I just had a thought. I think the jackpot would actually be if Bryan and Kate got together. Their massive brood and bad tempers could keep a "reality" show going for years!

N.E. Psychologist said...

Just had to chime in and agree with txmom, Sheep and jonandkatewho- minor children, however cute and however nice their parents seem, need protection, not exploitation.
Stopped watching JK* when they announced that they would have "a big announcement." Stopped watching tlc altogether when they promoted jk8 with a scene of Alexis crying "Daddy don't go." Enough is enough, and that was too much.

Sharla said...

I did not put a comment through saying Bryan was a jerk but did nothing illegal. He refused to cooperate with the officers to the point of being threatened with being tasered. He threatened to assault someone. Yes, in some states and possibly all, those are illegal. If the police officers felt he was violent enough to arrest, in this one I'll trust their judgement.

Monster Mommy said...

If you think Bryan Masche's mug shot is creepy... read his Twitter account- BEYOND CREEPY!

The rants are those of someone not playing with a full deck. He's clearly dealing with serious rage and mental issues.

He goes on to talk about bad politics, (even contacting TV's Sean Hannity at one point)... Chronicles his bouts with Prozac... Trips to the Burger King drive thru... Pyramid schemes, he and Jenny are involved in... Slams other posters' weight... Etc., etc...
Bryan Masche-- Maniacal Tweeter!

Coincidentally, the "Raising Sextuplets" marathon on WE today- was replaced with "Little Miss Perfect". Something tells me his 15 minutes in the Reality TV world are UP.

Monster Mommy said...

I forgot to add- Sharla is correct.
The Masche arrest fiasco began with Bryan and Jenny, over taking the tups to Lake Havasu vs. Phoenix for the day. A huge fight ensued, Jenny's Dad called the cops out of fear for his family. And yes, the police nearly "tasered" Bryan into submission. Nice. Oh yeah- and the kids WERE present during the argument. At least one source reported they were not in error. This case screams for CPS involvement- cancel the damn show too.

Can't See Sheep said...

jonandkatewho? & go away gosselins, good for you! :) It wold be nice if these people would take the money they've earnt & run while they're still nice families. TLC has a way of destroying them & it would be a shame if anymore fell to them. It would be nice if TLC would learn to run shows about them once a year as a sort of update, just so people can see & their curiousity about them satisfied without exploiting the heck out of them. TLC seems to be an all or nothing sort of organization.

jonandkatewho said:

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

I completely agree. To me, it's very close to signing a deal with the devil. No, I don't think the powers that be at TLC and Discovery, etc. are Satanists, but they are corporations and have no soul. They do not care about the well-being of the children, all the corporation cares about is making money and a good profit for its shareholders. If some childrens lives are ruined in the process, that's the cost of doing business.

Therefore, only fully grown adults should make the decision as to whether they will cast their lot with a corporation that has no heart. That is not a decision any child should have made for them. We can see that even though Bryan Masche clearly had rage issues, mistreated his own children on camera, that the network carrying that show did not cancel it! They kept filming.

It is abundantly clear that no television network is to be trusted with the lives of young children. They see dollar signs and nothing else. So I hope all families will take heed and keep their children protected from this sort of exploitation. No matter how desperately you need money, is it really worth it? I'd rather scrub floors for a living.

readerlady said...

Looks like the Hayes family did "take the money and run". There hasn't been anything from them for 4 or 5 months, and even before that, TLC was only allowed to film them occasionally. Sounds like the only sensible, normal family in the bunch.

miarng_mom said...

I believe it was the Masche family who had a pay pal button on their website-even before the babies were born. Does anyone else remember this? That's ridiculous! Just my opinion, of course.

Laurie said...

Nadya TRIED to pimp out her kids. She had a reality deal with Eyeworks who produced an hour long show in the UK. The company declined the option for additional shows - probably because the footage was deplorable. The show had her son throwing a screwdriver at her face and other kids spitting on her. She was devoid of an emotional connection to those kids and it made for awful tv.
AFTER her show was not picked up for additional filming, THEN she claimed to not want to exploit her kids for money.
She also told her PR rep that she had 11 embryos implanted since she was hoping for a HOM jackpot. Her plan has failed miserably.

susan said...

Discovery/TLC does not have a monopoly on disgusting, exploitive programming. The following story on PopEater showed up on my yahoo news page (Portions skipped for brevity noted by ellipses.):

Get ready for your jaw to hit the keyboard. Sources reveal to me that fresh on the heels of Bryan Masche's arrest on domestic violence charges, the WE network has (let's just call it) rewarded the trouble-making father-of-six with green-lighting a third season of the hit show, 'Raising Sextuplets.'..."After all the attention that arrest has received the network immediately ordered another season," a TV insider tells me. This is TV gold," an insider tells me. "The entire next season will have everyone tuning in to see if Bryan is indeed a good father or a monster. WE couldn't have scripted this better if they had tried. You can bet cameras will be with Bryan on October 7th when he's expected back in court."...WEtv had no comment at this time, although according to an ad on the network's website, they are planning an 8-hour marathon session of episodes this Saturday to capitalize on the situation. Subtle!

Can't See Sheep said...

miarng_mom, I believe you're right, I remember someting about them having a paypal button too. Were they they ones that also had a list of items they wanted on their site as well?

readerlady, I really do hope so. I really do hope the Hayes took the money & ran. I've been wondering why I've heard & seen nothing on them anywhere. I hope they went back to life as usual & put the money the gained from TLC to good use. It would be a wonderful thing. I do recall them saying something about doing the show so they could afford to purchase a few things for their disabled daughter.

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

No, no, no, no! What are they hoping for, that this nut will hit his wife or one of his kids on their program. This is not right & it's not good. They really need to stop rewarding the bad behavior of reality stars, because some of them go to frightening lengths. This is a bad message to put out there. People are going to tune in to see Bryan's bad behavior, because you know if he behaves himself the audience numbers will drop. Guess I will have to write off WEtv too. Truly, truly sickening.

Jane in CA said...

What a sad world we live in, where the WE network literally ran to renew the Masche's show another season upon hearing of his arrest for domestic violence. Truly sad and a shameful statement of how low our society has gone overall.

I hope (but without much conviction) that people are better than gawkers, and will not tune in to watch this man verbally abuse and physically threaten his family. Talk about rewarding thuggish behavior. It's shocking to me.

It's ironic in the extreme that WE is supposed to be "Women's Entertainment." I guess they think women will find domestic abuse entertaining? The sight of a grown man scaring his own little children is supposed to be what women want to see? What is the matter with these people? They have no decency.

Jane in CA said...

ReaderLady,

I was thinking the same thing about the Hayes family. They allowed the cameras in briefly, and then took that money and used it wisely to provide for their family. I found both parents to be really down to earth, normal, and loving to each other and their children. I'm thankful they seemed to handle this whole experience wisely and without dollar signs overruling their better selves. I hope that the money went a long way to making life easier for all of them.

Lauren M said...

For those that think Nadya does not exploit her kids - did you catch Jimmy Kimmel last night (9/23)? They did a "skit" where Nadya drops off 5 of her kids at the studio and tells them "go make some money for mommy". They then proceed to shoe the kids massaging peoples feet, holding a boom microphone, running a computer and moussing someone's hair.
Joke or not - the tone was not funny but quite sad and desperate for a mom that had not had a full or part time job since 1999 even though she has plenty of nannies and is always photographed around town. If she is away from the house so much - she may as well try to work even a little!

Hayes Family. From what we saw on TV I think Megan Hayes was becoming a little uncomfortable with the filming. One time she voiced something to the effect/affect of "who has a big white bus pull up in front of their house when they are going out?" The TLC bus. And in the last shows Megan would be lying on the couch with her face in the corner not wanting to get up. The parents said she is a couch potato but I think she was letting her feelings known. Good for the Hayes Family. I would like to see a couple of specials a year. I enjoyed their parenting style and seeing how the family interacted with Rebecca. Also having a child with C.P. it was enjoyable to watch a show that focused so positively on a disability. Of course Eric and Betty did not bring any controversy to the show, so out they go. It upsets me that this is the mentality of the world today that the Gosselins and Maches are considered worth viewing on TV.

CakeIsGreat said...

The Masche's did have have a website with a paypal button, as do the Stansels. The Jones family, TLC's newest HOM family, has had one too since before the kids were actually born, which I believe is still up and running. The dad keeps a blog on the site too. He comes off as so self-righteous and self-important. Of course he believes his family is the model of a Good Christian Life. I guess my corner of the world is bazaar-o-world because the God I like to believe in would rather see a family adopt an already born orphan instead of buying random frozen sperm (a fact the Jones' don't seem to want to mention these days.)

The last time the Hayes' were on was in the winter when they got a dog. Maybe they're only doing specials now and then, or maybe that was it for them. Either way, good for them! Glad to see some people have their priorities straight. One of their episodes involved building a wheelchair ramp for their daughter. Eric did the work him self, but maybe TLC paid for the material. That I can support. I'd watch a network to handicapped accessible home repairs than spoil kids with vacation after vacation, while paying the parents too, any day of the week.

I heard to rumor that WETV has renewed the Masche's on the heals of what has happened. There are really no words for how disgusting that is if it's true. I don't like it, but I do "get", the sensationalizing of Gosselins drama. Divorce, cheating, possible sham marriage; that screams soap opera/tabloid fodder. Domestic Violence, with children involved, does not what so ever. Masche's also love to play the Christian card. How many Christians support wanting to put 6 three year olds in a van with 4 guns?! Abuse is where many religions draw the line at the "divorce is wrong" mantra, except for some extremists. If another season does happen, I hope it blows up in the networks face.

Saw a few minutes of that new quints show but they sounded just like J&K basically begging and crying poor. Every time they talked about how they had to downsize, how they need this, that and the other, I said, "And you are telling us this because...?" Sounds like an appeal for love offerings to me. Plus, I read how the dad contacted Em Tanner (?) and is sure sounded like a hint for freebies!

It's true. Bryan was on The Today Show last month and he said the show was over and that they would be doing no more filming, no more seasons.

Then on Twitter, he said something along the lines of having meetings with WEtv bigwigs and then a YIPPEE! We are signed up for season 3!!!

Why else would WEtv decide not to renew a contract, and then change their minds and offer them a season 3? Because now they are finally acting like Jon & Kate and creating controversy with piss poor parenting, and that equals ratings.

Bryan Masche is absolutely being rewarded for his bad behavior and awful parenting. But it will be interesting to see how they do this since I heard he and Jenny are separated. I suppose they will get back together for the money, even though Bryan told Jenny's father, "I will flatten you old man! I will flatten you!"

Way to go, Jenny. You sure picked a real winner there.

Absolutely. I watched two shows and thought...another Jon and Kate in the making. Here we go again. I was not at all impressed with the show or the family. I guess I'm just on Gosselin overload, and I won't watch any family with multiples. No interest there whatsoever...it's a yawner. Soon they will be getting haircuts, going to the dentist, taking pictures of poop, and going to ski school.

Wow, I caught the episode with the tups' 2nd birthday and the father was flipping out, angry, not loving, sees the children as Really Hard Work and I just saw someone ready to flip out, guess he did. That was a strange parenting situation with him calling her snide names and her making excuses for him? Good that they go off TV and eventually he will just walk away from them. He cannot tolerate those children and sees them, as far as I'm concerned, as competition and too, too much work.
Got to get these reality shows with children off the air. Bad stuff.

I have an online friend who recently visited Roloff farms for a gathering with her husband's place of employment. She saw the whole family there and Amy was so nice to her son. She read to him, played with him and posed for pictures with him. She looks so happy in the pics, posing with the public. I told her I can't imagine Kate enjoying the public. Could you imagine her opening up the mansion to kids she doesn't know? Never! She'd be the worst hostess ever.

What do these people expect that they'll give birth to multiples & they'll just somehow magically take care of themselves, while the money & freebies come pouring in & they do nothing but sit back collecting it all. Of course it's hard work, no stable person who in touch with reality is going to think it'll be a cake walk. I mean the first few months of life with even one baby can have parents stumbling around sleep deprived, never mind dealing with that times 4, 5, 6 or more.

Looks like TLC made a big booboo making a show featuring polygamists/bigamists "Sister Wives". Authorities in Utah are thinking of prosecuting the family since bigamy is a felony. They don't normally prosecute it since it is something behind closed doors between consenting adults but the difference here is it is being flaunted on national TV; authorities say that's taking it too far and they should at least take notice of it.
TLC, once again you just don't think ahead very well do you?
