Ugly American said...

I just want Kate, to return some of the cash she has so selfishly fleeced from the American people, whom she conned into feeling so sorry for her... While begging them for love offerings.

To Kate- LOVE was equal to MONEY. Nothing's changed.

bonehead said...

Well, another of Kate's Nannies quit. God help those kids. It was said that she is basicly a slave driver and control freak. The articles are saying that she would make the nannies work 24 hours, make them go on trips, sleep over and do what ever she wanted them to do. She has gone through 11 nannies and various helpers, over the past couple of years. She paid the nannies $25 and hour. Gee, poor single lonely, mom Kate has to actually be a mom. I'm sure she is gonna bitch/whine/complain/cry about it. Poor thing!!!! NOT! I hope she does not take it out on those kids.

JoyinVirginia said...

I think DWTS is doing fine in the ratings without Ms. Kreider. Reality show star Audrina is the darling of the show, and Tony may get to the finals with her as a partner. Go Tony!
I hope that Poster "Shhh", from last week's free discussion, will post again about entertainment industry rumors about Ms. Kreider's show. Very intriguing.

Hippie Chick said...

Ugly American...Not gonna happen. She has already spent that money on nails, hair, clothes, tanning, and trying to beautify herself. She tries to look pretty on the outside because she is so damn ugly on the inside.

pinkdiamond611 said...

Does anybody know when Nov. sweeps begin? If the Kart is nowhere to be found then we know that the fifteen minute clock is about done. They always seem to pull her out for some shock-value spike in the ratings, but that doesn't seem to be on the horizon, does it? The Kart is not earning her keep. . . .

I've seen posted in a couple of places the next K+8 show is Nov 14, and dependent on the ratings for the show they'll decide whether to red or green light it.

ihatefrogs said...

I agree with a previous poster who suggested that any time Kate is in desperate need for attention ( ie ratings, self promotion) we see an emergance of her ex husband, Jon in the 'headlines'. Interesting how Kate goes MIA but then the name Jon Gosselin resurfaces itself in the entertainment/gossip media headlines.

youaintallthat said...

Did ROL finally come to the realization that daily photos of Kate Gosselin pumping gas, shopping at Target, gettings her nails done, running errands to the chicken feed store, and 'jogging' down the street are REALLY not worthy of 'headline' news.

Widowed Young said...

I am very bored and should be cleaning my house but decided to see if Kate had a new entry on her blog instead. I noticed a recent comment from Baby Mama (Oct 22). She asks Kate to contact her so they can "stomp out" the cyber bullies if they work as a team. She then has to tell Kate that she runs the number one fan site (with over 600 members)-shouldn't Kate already know this since they are BFF's??

All I can think of is Stephen King's Misery-"I'm your #1 Fan!"

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

It's so funny that you should say that. I've never seen a photo of BM, but for some reason, the image (and persona) I see in my head is Annie Wilkes in Misery!

You're right. If the two of them are so tight, she wouldn't have to explain who she is. They should be hanging out together at the spa, tanning together, or finishing off a bottle or two of merlot.

Heck, they should have each other on speed dial!

=----------------------------

What is curious is that I haven't noticed any advertising on TLC for this supposed show debut. Since 11/14 is only about 3 weeks away, it seems like TLC would be doing lots of promos to garner interest and viewership.

If there still aren't any commercials by Nov. 1st, then I really don't know what to think. If this show is really debuting in mid-November, but with no fanfare and promotion by TLC, that says they really don't want the show to succeed. Are they actively trying for poor ratings, thereby having an excuse to finally show Kate Gosselin the exit door?

We know she's unpleasant to work with - perhaps execs at TLC have finally had enough - she's not earning enough money for them to continue to put up with her demands. Or she's garnering so much negative publicity, they are trying to casually distance themselves from her. (Isn't that a little cruel - after all, FrankenKate is, at least in part, their own creation.)

Can't See Sheep said...

You said it Hippie Chick, only kate doesn't seem to realize that no matter how much money she puts into her orange hide it's never going to make her beautiful, not even Donald Trump has the kind of cash needed to cover her ugly, there is no such thing as a personality transplant & short of that, kate's ugly will always show through.

pinkdiamond611, maybe that's what kate's becoming, like Hallowe'en decorations they'll blow the dust off of her & pull her out once a year to horrify the viewers, then tuck her a way for the rest of the year.

Widowed Young, that's exactly the first thing that comes to mind whenever I see mention of BM, SK's Misery. She's creepy, really, really creepy.

pinkdiamond611 said...

Wow, I just realized it has only been ONE year since the Kart was the hottest Halloween costume. She went from being "everywhere" to being a persona non grata in a year. THUMP.

InTheCan said...

We were just on vacation at a beachouse and as we cleaned up , I found a magazine with Khate on the cover, I THINK it was from last year? It said "Kate's Private Hell" or something like that, with a pic on cover of MissThang with the Ugly Personality, scowling of course. I immediately removed it from said drawer and threw it out in the trash can in the carport, made sure also it was FACE-UP so that whoever went in that can next (either cleaning ppl or the owners of the house) could see her Ugliness' Face had been thrown unceremoniously in there , where she belongs.! Whew! I felt so gratified to clean up the world, even if just a little.

Tami said...

She's too boring to be a Halloween costume, but I have seen a few people around here still hanging onto her awful former hair-do. The new one is bad but it's just not the "brand" like it used to be. A hooker costume has been around for ages, so she is nothing new.

Carezee said...

It's kind of funny. We have this one mom at our school that everyone refers to as Khate G. She has that lovely trade mark hair do. She tries dressing more hookerish though. That do and those clothes really look ridiculous. She is older and not attractive either so it really looks bad. She is the talk of the school.

Autumn Sunrise said...

LOL!! You should have drawn a beard and devil horns on the picture before you threw it out!

EnoughAlready:O said...

Blah ! This BM is really scary , trying to contact Kate. Does she really think that Kate would contact her ?
The scariest part is I am guessing she is a grown woman, she has a child of her own and she is way too obsessed with Kate. Scary.

Even scarier is that she is uninformed enough to really believe Kate writes or reads her TLC-manufactured silly blog. Yes, if she and Kate were so tight, I doubt she'd have to reach out to her on a public forum.

LOL @ that! My daughter and I were talking about that wig tonight. She and her friend dressed up as J&K last year and she played K8 incredibly well. She was a total wench, dressed like a skank and it was hilarious.

All that to say, she found a great wig today that fits her character this year (Slash) and she said, "this wig is a lot better quality than that piece of cheap trash you bought last year." Then she laughed and said, "I guess the wig was very much like Kate, a cheap, piece of trash." That made laugh!

bonehead said...

Oh, even scarier is Kate having a new book out in 2011? Called: Love in the Mix? It should be called Lunatic in the Mix. This whole Kate story reminds me of the movie She-devil. The one with Rosanne Barr in it, and Merle Stret played Mary Fisher, It reminds me of when Mary Fishers world was falling and she had a new book out called: Love in the Rinse cycle, it flopped! Kate's will too. Saw new pics of her, geez, did she age. For someone who is 35, she looks between 45-50. And I was right about her, spending as little time with those kids as possible. They are merchandise, a bunch of dolls to play with on camera. What a sick person she is.

Love Outside The Mix said...

Oh, even scarier is Kate having a new book out in 2011? Called: Love in the Mix?
-----------------

Whatever happened to that book? It was supposed to be released in October of 2009, but was pulled because of possible plagiarism (?), and then I thought it was released overseas somewhere...or am I thinking of another book?

From a sheeple on Perez Hilton's blog, responding to the "nanny quits" story (cut and pasted with grammatical/typing errors intact):


"Perez you KNOW there's this twit on gwop who PURPOSELY make sup stories to make Kate look bad. They've admitted over and over they lie and make rumors to make her look bad since she never does anything bad."

1) Will the twit in question please raise his or her hand?

2) Where are the admissions that "gwop" (are acronyms ever all lower case?) has lied and made up stories? In almost a year and a half here, I've seen this group squelch many false rumors (pro AND con Kate and Jon. I'm impressed at the way the group holds posters to high standards of precise facts and credible sources.

gwop on!

fidosmommy said...

Yes, Love is in the Mix was a mess of recipes that seemed like a ridiculous attempt at making money for nothing. I never saw the book but there was a little early sneak preview somewhere. They were toying with things like "get out two pieces of whole wheat bread, place two slices of turkey on the lower slice, top with lettuce and tomato, put the top slice on. Cut on a diagonal." I also read that she had included the recipe for Monkey Munch, which is, of course,
the Puppy Chow recipe put out by
Crispix cereal. At least that is what I remember reading about it.

So, it never went on the North American market. It was offered overseas in India and Indonesia, or someplace.

Maybe they're "retooled" it and are getting it ready for a second showing. Ha. The premise of the book was that these were the kinds of quick meals and snacks any busy mother can pull together quickly for her family. Healthy and fast.

No thanks. I'll go eat corn stalks before I'll buy any recipe
book by Kate Gosselin.

We have that lady too! I first saw her at kindergarten orientation night. What a frightful hair-do; even worse than Kate's and it was platinum blonde! Someone else had a kindergartner with the old hair-do (or don't). I saw this same woman at a Daisy girl scout meeting and I think she was trying to grow it out because she had the bangs in a ponytail at the top of her head. Ugh! When I see women like that who look like they are trying to be her I can't help but think they are big fans or something.

The new book should be titled, "Love of Money is in the Mix."

I wonder if it comes with directions on how to eat your lunch in order of her specifications.

Blech. TLC, you're not fooling anyone.

Why is this person blaming GWOP for the story about Kate's nanny quitting? IIRC, the story was an article featured in Life and Style magazine. The source of the info came from L & S not GWOP. If this individual has a 'beef' about the story, take it up with the magazine and the person responsible for writing the article. Seriously.

Because most of the sheeple detest hearing anything bad about Kart and they detest GWOP because of their views. They want GWOP to appear ignorant and falsely biased.

I see no sign of a black eye. She looks like someone who just finished jogging which she did.

NoUse4Kate said...

Look at the pics again. The right eye does have discoloration underneath it and there is a small welt. Perhaps she had some cosmetic work done? Who knows, but she still looks completely miserable and bitter, kind of sad when you stop and think about it.

Look at image 9 of the 12:

Sister Wives is TLC's new extravaganza. The level of controversy is so high and the family's life so complex and preverse, that TLC has a ratings winner here with this one. Kate and her pathetic little show is nothing now and she is done after Nov. 7, IMO.

Kate's left eye area does look swollen. What I cant get over, is how much her facial expression resembles the Grinch from 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas'.

Kate's Bruised Right Eye said...

http://www.infdaily.com/2010/10/kate-gosselin-tries-2-keep-up.html

Seriously, I have never seen her look worse. It's obvious that the weight of the world is on her shoulders...or at least the weight of 8 kids. Let's see:

Purse Boy is MIA

Jon's life is relatively sane and he's happy in love.

Books have tanked.

Show is on the chopping block.

DWTS was a fiasco.

Didn't get picked up by Celebrity Apprentice.

Got nixed for the mom's talk show.

Emmy awards appearance led to nothing but being the butt of a ginormous joke.

Nanny of the Day threw in the towel and has spouted info that puts Kate in a negative light....again.

The People cover garnered nothing but negative reader letters.

What's left Kate? Really? What is truly left for you to grasp on to?

How about your FAMILY? They could use a mom who loves, appreciates and nurtures them. A mom who puts her heart and soul into helping them develop their talents and gifts. Not a mom who can't stop looking in the mirror and finds the lure of Hollywood much more appealing than spending quality time with their kids.

goodbyeKH8 said...

Kate plus 8 is no longer a reality t.v show. It has turned into a lets watch 8 whinny kids and an annoying mother travel the world show. The next episode will be featured in Alaska. Kate is a fame monster and this train-wreck of a show should and must be cancelled for the sake of the children.

Aye-Eye said...

I would not say a black eye, but there is a welt underneath her lower lid on the edge. I think the blue is eyeshadow.
Could be just tiredness, could be anything.

She sure has gotten a lot of filler around her month. And the photographers are not using flash to fill in all the cracks. That's why she is not looking so good.

And she probably missing Steve...can't travel without leaving the kids at home with nannies...

All that filler around Kate's mouth makes her look like a bassett hound. And she looks exhausted: maybe taking care of her kids for the first time since the tups were born? No paid-for nurse, no Jon, no Jodi or Beth, no nanny (or at least down a nanny), no film crew, no Steve, no Nana Janet. All people discarded by Kate or who got sick of her crap. Now she's finally doing some of what she claims to do and she looks beat...or hungover...or both.

I understand how you feel and I wish for the same, but her greater judge is waiting for her, and she cant run and hide or have what she has done edited out. She will pay or repay in the end and it wont be pretty.

I can't believe I'm sticking up for Kate, but photos taken after running should not be compared to anything in normal life. A friend took photos of me following a 5K race last year and I about puked at how much older, how completely and totally awful I looked. I was 36 and looked like a 50-yr-old lifelong heavy smoker who had a HARD life!

NoUse4Kate said...

Thanks for posting that Monster Mommy. What a turn around on their part, eh? TLC had to line someones pocket for those women to change their view so much.

********
Sadly, we know she is not doing anything close to what regular mothers of large families do. Her older Asian nanny has probably gone nowhere. She still has PLENTY of help, and we know it. So maybe she's tired from now having to do a tiny bit of work. But it's probably just depression over realizing she ahs tanked.

The Wine Is Showing said...

I might agree with that in a few cases if Kate actually ran. I've worked a lot of road races and very few people look like they've aged 14 or 15 years especially if they are in shape and do this regularly as Kate claims to do. In truth she doesn't run seven miles a day, she jogs a mile or two when the lone pap is there and she's reminded that it's better for her image than another trip to the nail salon.

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

To Kate's bruised right eye:
I agree with you totally. you can also add to the list:

Kate didn't get invited to the end of the season of DWTS 10.

Kate didn't get invited to the reunion of DWTS over the last 10 seasons.

When will her next appearance at the Emmy's happen. She said this was her first Emmy! oh my!!

She is delusional.

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

Just saw the video of Tony and Audrina on Ellen. Tony is such an officer and a gentleman! He didn't talk bad of Kate, but it was fun to watch him laugh and talk about being with Audrina. He is so happy that he has her as a partner. He doesn't have that huge stress level on his face now that he did when he was with Kate.
Tony and Audrina for the win!

No Worry, Beef Curry said...

Exactly, Tami...

It's kind of sad that I know this-- but, let's just say I have a very good memory. Jon confirmed, after the cops were called out to the McMansion, during "Nanny-Gate"... Kate has a full-time 'round the clock' nanny, Judy. He said candidly, "She's ALWAYS there". Then there is still Ashley, and that new blonde girl, named Kassi. So still three and counting, as there is currently a Not-a-Nanny slot open, after poor Ariels' abrupt resignation.

bonehead said...

It does not seem to matter if Kate was jogging or shopping of late, she looks aged and worried. I think the Tanning is catching up with her, it does nothing for her, except make her wrinkles more noticeable. If she thinks by staying tan makes her look more like her kids, she is so twisted wrong. The recent pics of her shopping at Whole Foods, she looked aged(they say tired) and worried. To be tired her!? Geez what she do all day? It must be hard being Kate, getting the kids off to school/with help, going to spa, tanning, nails, hair, jogging when kids are home, so she does not have to play or interact with them. I sure she still has nannies, just not as many now. Cleaning people, etc. BOY THAT IS A HARD LIFE SHE HAS! Boy thinking on her part must be hard.

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

I know! I've noticed the same thing among her "strongest" fans. They all seem barely literate. It would be wrong to say that they are 14-year old girls, because I think most teenagers can spell and use proper punctuation to some degree. (I know my 12 year old son can spell better than that)

I can't figure out if her fans are simply horribly uneducated, functional illiterates, and some very young teens who haven't done well in school. Either way, I'm embarrassed for them every time I read sentences like the above.

Brokethelegdancing said...

I had not kept up with who this Kate was,honest. But, being off of work due to an operation and my sister always telling me about her, since we were raised in the same area. I decided to go to the webisodes that TLC has on the Net.

It is amazing how a person wants to watch her, even though she sounds so rude, so filled with an excess ego, and so matter of fact/cold. Not a loving woman, but a cold woman with very little affection displayed to the children/husband/guests on the shows.

If this is the editing, then I don't know what to say other than what can you expect from a TV show.

If this is her personality, which you all know, than she is compelling to watch but a cold, unaffectionate, manipulating force to be dealt with. Maybe her kids won't be on TV, as I did not find them very interesting, not at all. Yet, I think she is going to be re-worked and going to have her own show. You know what I mean, "a person you hate to watch, but you still do". Yes, she has that kind of appeal. Of course my sister didn't agree and thinks she is "over" but we shall see, because we have a bet on this. I do see her as a female Trump-type person who does not care and gives you the ego right in your face, which Trump does. People watch him. As soon as TLC finds her venue, she will have her own show, no doubt in my mind. BEWARE!It won't be about mother hood and it won't be about cooking or anything a mother would want to watch, it will appeal to people who also watch controversial men on TV.

*Banjos playing*... that's funny, Annastasia. Sheeple sure are a lost cause.

Well, Tony Dovalani and Audrina just got voted off DWTS this evening. It was so refreshing to see her go out with such dignity and grace- and not Kate blubbering on about herself. At the end of tonight's show, Tony commented about how well they both got along this season, laughed, worked hard, etc.

He said... "ALWAYS with a smile on our faces." (insert Kates' saggy grimace)

get those kids off tv said...

I saw some radaronline pictures of the kids looking miserable next to kate and one of the not-a-nanny you know.Have you ever wondered why the gosselin kids are not carrying their owu backpacks all the way to the car?Why must someone(the nanny) carry the backpacks dor them? Is this not teaching the kdis that they have servants?

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&
Donald Trump is a shrewd businessman, who has enough savvy in the Entertainment Industry to work a show. He's got lawyers and knows how to use them. He is in control of his time and his appearances.

Ms. Gosselin does not have such savvy. Her experience is only that she was told her life was interesting, and asked to film. TLC controlled the production entirely.

To work in the Entertainment Industry, it takes a lot of hard work, patience, and networking. Ms. Gosselin just expects it all to be, "okay, here I am! Film me!"

Plus, she's a loose cannon, as shown on DWTS. Tony D. may have had to work with her, but no director of any show after this would want to have her on set. She's a liability. She doesn't take direction. She doesn't show up on time.

No, you won't see her on any other shows, other than, "I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Outta Here!"

Although that's fine by me. Just keep the kids off TV.

Barbra said...

One article about Tony and Audrina being voted off talked about the upcoming celebration (I believe it's the 200th show), naming ex-contestants who will be there ...
NO mention of HER! Back to Tony and Audrina, again, their being voted off shows this is not being voted on talent but other agendas (what they are, I can't figure out). There are less known and/or talented contestants than Audrina, so it's hard to figure. At least she went off with CLASS while kate left class-less.

gherkin said...

Interesting that Kate isn't part of Maria Shriver's big women's conference she is holding in CA. She has every big name there from Jessica Simpson to Katie Couric. LOL. Wasn't Kate at this conference last year signing her book? Sorry Kate!

Barbra said...

The list of what kate is NOT a part of gets longer every day. Today we're reminded that she's NOT in CA at Maria Shriver's conference and there was a listing of people who will be at the DWTS 200th episode celebration and guess whose name wasn't there either! We can only hope and pray that the writing is on the wall and she is SO done!

Maria Shriver is having her Women's Convention. I wonder if Kate is in attendance or is her nose pressed against the glass looking in? "I'm still the Kate you loved last year!! Let me in!!!"

OC Girl said...

Barbra said...The list of what kate is NOT a part of gets longer every day. Today we're reminded that she's NOT in CA at Maria Shriver's conference and there was a listing of people who will be at the DWTS 200th episode celebration and guess whose name wasn't there either!

Don't forget she didn't make it onto this upcoming season of Celebrity Apprentice!

I really don't believe Twist of Kate is gonna air...it keeps getting pushed back.

Bubbles said...

I don't think Kate was ever being considered for Celebrity Apprentice. I think she was/is being considered for Donald Trump's dating show The Ultimate Merger. Along the lines of what Brokethelegdancing said, I think there would be an audience to watch her on a dating show because it would definitely be controversial and we've all seen how she treats people so people would probably tune in just to watch how horrible she is.

I've recently read some comments on other websites regarding Jon's attempt to keep the kids from filming, and one thing I keep seeing that bothers me intensely is people defending Kate filming the children saying "She has to make a living somehow." She should have more than enough money by now to live comfortably although perhaps not in the style to which she's become accustomed. Kate + 8 is not KATE making a living - it's THE KIDS making a living.

I think if Kate was smart enough she could have had a pretty decent career in the entertainment industry on her own, but she's so completely narcissistic she expected that everything would continue to go her way. Pretty much everything HAS gone her way, ever since she met Jon and started her attempts at becoming a mother of multiples.

Miranda said...

I think Ingrate Kate believed what a lot of naive wanna-be celebrities believe: That the only thing you have to do is get your name out there and then you can relax and ride that fame & money wave forever.

As we've said here many times, it's entirely possible for accidental celebrities to parlay their 15 minutes into careers, providing they're able to keep their egos in check and are willing to work hard. But Kate's ego is beyond control and she's convinced that she already did her lifetime quota of work by being on bed rest for 30 (or whatever she claims it was) weeks.

Basically, she's never had anything going for her except those children, but she's deluded herself into thinking that her "sparkling" personality was the reason for the show's success. She has no clue that the realest reality is that she's not very smart, she's uninformed and uneducated, she has no talent, no work ethic, no social skills, no manners, no sense of empathy or charity, and she's mean-spirited. I ache for those poor children.

Hey, that's pretty good! The last person they had on their was Omarosa - another "reality villian". Kate would actually fit the bill perfectly!

capslock said...

I can tell you from EXPERIENCE what is wrong with Kate in the INF photos. Ever since she was on Dancing With The Stars, Kate has had a total obsession with losing weight, running, etc. Next to likes of Pam Anderson, etc. I would probably get a complex too.

In college, I lost about 25 pounds in two months. I thought I looked great because my legs were so skinny and I could wear a size 0. Was I crazy. My eyes had huge dark circles and I looked exhausted. I WAS exhausted from trying so hard.

As for tanning, I can tell you I am a Floridian and most 35 year olds in my area are TAN and look GREAT. Look at the Housewives of Orange County. They are Kate's age and don't look haggard. I actually look HEALTHIER with a tan.

Ladies, tanning within the last year does not age you THAT quickly. I assure you - not in your twenties/thirties.

Kate is SO UGLY on the inside and MONEY is no longer filling her void and keeping her so-called HAPPY. 250K an episode should make her ecstatic. I think she is NOW learning MONEY DOES NOT BUY HAPPINESS.

I almost died when I saw Kate on the Bikini Body People magazine released in September of all months. She doesn't look anything like that - not even close. VERY SAD.

I think Kate really thought her fame and fortune would grow if she could look as good as the Hollywood "starlets" do. It's not working. In my opinion, she looked MUCH better as a happy mom (questionable, I know) with some weight on her. Take it from me, not everyone is built or meant to be less than 110 pounds.

WonderButton said...

Why can't there be more honest reporting on Kate + 8, as there is at the end of this brief article? This shows me that there are reporters out there who are not afraid to tell it like it is.

BerksPa said...

On the Ten Worst Beauty Trends...Kate has not only had her reverse mullet hairstyle listed, but she is guilty of at least 3 others:
The hair extensions, extensive (alleged) plastic surgery and the fake tanning. Girlfriend can't win can she *snicker*

Bev2222 said...

With all the talk about how haggared Kate looks I still cannot believe that she and Jon smoke. Nothing ages you faster. The germ freak and health nut she claims to be and eating organic etc.nothing is more gross and disgusting to me then smoking! I sure hope they didn't do it in the house around the kids.

Clock on Purseboy MIA Status said...

Purseboy still MIA? Has it been 4 weeks now????

ROFLMAO -

Those who watch the Alaska footage might see him..... (yeah, see his backside as he and she hotfoot it off through the woods for two days of 'private consultations')... but you must remember the Alaska footage was filmed months ago.

Seems Purseboy went to Europe and d-i-s-a-p-p-e-a-r-e-d.

I posit that he asked European officials to erase his identity, ala Jason Bourne, and he's in hiding from Kart and TLC!

Purseboy whimpers in his sleep "no, no, no... please don't make me go back there - anything but that". In a related development, Purseboy gives his wife an ultimatum "Get rid of all your purses, or I'm outta here!"

He's currently in therapy for a recently admitted purse phobia. (It's possible that I'm kidding here! LOL)

Of course, being fair here, it could be that Kart saw the error of her ways, turned into a nice person and loving mom, and no longer needs a "bodyguard"....

Nah.........

Snerk said...

Check out Life and Style as you wait in the checkout lines the next few days. They are saying filming has been halted and Twist of Kate may never be. They also show Kate's not so lovely roots and claim she's concerned about money.

Vanessa said...

How can she have FOUR nannies? At any daycare facility, isn't the caregiver/child ratio like one adult per TEN 3-5 yr olds? I know this varies from state to state etc., but you get what I'm trying to say. Why does she even need ONE nanny, let alone 4? She does NOT work, she only works when she's FILMING, the kids are gone all day...does she need a nanny so she can go play? She can dump them off at Jon's, why doesn't she do that? What are these nannies costing her? Even if she pays them dirt cheap, it's still an expense.
Why can't this "super" mom of 8 not be alone with her children and do the most important job, parent them?

Get those kids off TV said...

silimom said... I think they will stop filming until next summer when we finally get the "Gosselins Do Europe" episode. I think they will move it more to a "special" 3-4 times a year.
Rumor has it Kate and the kids and -surprise surprise- Steve were spotted at a store getting ready for Halloween with A CAMERA CREW following them around. This is not over..sadly

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

TLC was thinking of ways to make Kate very unique when they touted her as being a health food nut and eating organic. That is not how she is now or ever was.

They kept the smoking well hidden also. The idea was to paint the Gosselins as squeaky clean, organized, healthy, and very appealing.

Didn't work long, though.

NT said...

INF has pics of Kate dropping off her car to be serviced and then sneaking in the back door of her tanning salon. She has on a cap and it looks like longer extensions.

Jane in California said...

When I looked at the pics on INF of Kate dropping off her car, about 2 stories below are pics of Mel B (Scary Spice). In contrast, Mel looks perfectly put together. Kate cannot compete with real stars.

NT said...

There is a new show starting tonite on lifetime after Project runway. It's called Fairy Jobmother!! Anyway,it's a show to help people find a job. This one preview I saw showed a woman with Kate's old hairdo and the fairy jobmother said "That hairdo will Never do" I laughed so hard. I can't wait to watch this new show. I'm not sure if that clip is from tonites show or maybe one that will be coming up,but it's priceless.

Hippie Chick said...

Kate is looking haggard because her 15 minutes are up IMO. She knows that this Alaska show has a lot riding on it. TLC probably told her that she needs so many viewers or it's over. They are filming her & her kids at this party store to appease her, but frankly, I think it's done. She's old news, she's been out of the spotlight for far to long. The offers have dried up, she has burned her bridges & all that's left now is her & her kids. Time to finally be a mother Kate, not just to play one on TV, which you didn't do that well anyways. Hope she enjoyed her little time at the "top" because it seems to be all over for Kate Krieder.

Widowed Young said...

Just a couple of thoughts:

About carrying their own backpacks-I remember when they showed Jon getting Mady and Cara off the bus in their driveway they would throw (or drop) their backpacks at him. I thought it was very disrespectful at the time. Yes-a child should carry their own things-it teaches responsibility!

About nannies-how is Kate going to feel in a few years when the kids are watching the "home movies" and question Kate about the fact that they will never have nannies?

Today's pictures on INF-how can she continue to deny plastic surgery when she wears a top that is 2+ sizes too small? I just don't get it....

Can't See Sheep said...

Clock on Purseboy MIA Status, LMAO!!! Thank you so much for the giggles. Jason Bourne & Purseboy in the same post. Purse phobia! Could be worse, he could end up with a purse fetish. There you go he could be in jail somewhere in Europe because he kept trying to carry the purses of other ladies & they took that to be theft. I can picture him out along the Champs-Elysees doing just that right now. :) Ah, Autummn in Paris where you hear the lovely sounds along the Champs-Elysees, mon Dieu renard argenté!! and Voleur! Voleur! As Steve tries despiritely to obediantly carry the purses of other women.

Vanessa said...

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

I honestly don't think "super" mom can cope with day to day life, never mind day to day life with 8 children who are individuals. I'm willing to bet as they get older & even more individual, kate will find it increasingly dificult to cope. I'm seen how narcissists respone when one of their two children shows their individuality, I can only imagine what one would do if they had 8. kate really set herself up for something she just isn't able to handle. Talk about shooting yourself in the leg just as you start the marathon.

Autumn Sunrise said...

"Why does she even need ONE nanny, let alone 4? She does NOT work, she only works when she's FILMING, the kids are gone all day...does she need a nanny so she can go play?"

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

Exactly! The kids are only home for three hours on five days -- they go to bed at 7:30. She can't take care of six kids for three hours? The twins are old enough not to require constant "surveillence!" If the nanny is also a housekeeper during the day, then that would explain it. How do we know that she has four of them? Certainly not at the same time!

bonehead said...

I read a about a month ago Kate had 3 Nannies and one quit recently(she pays them $25an hour. Yeah,I agree with everyone here, why does she even need nannies? Those kids are not babies. And there are a lot of moms out there with that many kids as Kate or more and have no Nannies. Oh and try 2 hours with her kids a day, Kate jogs when the kids are home from school, up to a hour or even 2 hours(read this on line). I think Kate can't stand her kids at all, perhaps they remind her of Jon too much. Saw the new pics today, is she tryin to look 20'ish. And what is this crap about, going out the back door of the Tanning salon, because of paps? Please, she is no celebrity. Normal/regular paps do not chase or go after, someone like Kate, she is in comparing to real celebs a big nothing, real/regular paps would not waste their time on her. This must be TLC's paps.

PK said...

I am incensed that she is worried about money. She has received it all and floundered it by wasting it on herself and nannies.

I ran child care from my home many many years ago. One person to 6 babies. I didn't find it hard at all.

I am now going thru a divorce that I don't want and I am worried about money and my future.

What about all the military families, people who have lost their jobs, ugh I could go on and on.....

Jane in CA said...

I think Kate's "security" budget got severely restricted by TLC. Meanwhile, purseboy is off spending some of his hard-earned cash, and maybe doing some fence-mending with his wife.

Once the show is canceled, how long can Kate keep up the payments for private school tuition and the three to four nannies? I think one reason she insisted on that particular private school was because of its distance from their home - the children are gone two hours more per day than if they attended a local public school.

Silver Shamrock said...

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

If they attended a local public school, or even a local private school, there is always the option of ASP (after school program), or she could have put them in an after-school childcare program until 6 p.m. In fact, if she REALLY wanted them to be away for an extended time, she could have enrolled them in their current school's after-hours program. They would get home just in time to go to bed!

The twins went to their current school BEFORE they moved to the Reading area, when they were less than 20 minutes away from the school, and they weren't enrolled in the after-hours program. It only made sense that they would continue at the school once they moved to the new home, and even more sense that the tups would be enrolled in the same school. It had nothing to do with having them away for two hours more because it initially did not start out that way when they lived at the "old" home.

It doesn't make sense to me. Most people switch schools when they move such a great distance. Not good enough for Kate though! I don't know why it makes sense to have that long of a commute just because they started out in the school.

orphanage = money pit said...

If Kate was so emamored of the kids' school and does everything for the kids, then why did she insist on buying that money pit orphanage so far away from their school? My kids are enrolled in great schools and they're happy. No way would I move them 45-60 minutes away from their schools, no matter how nice the house. Those few hours between the end of school and bedtime are precious. Between homework, cooking, bathing, etc, there's so little hanging out time. Wouldn't sacrifice that for the world. Kate values appearances more than anything and bought that house to show the world she's made it, not for the kids.

Betty Boop said...

I believe originally the twins were moved from public to private school because one of them was having issues at school due to the show. Quite possibly the change in school helped the children. It seems that particular school draws students from a larger geographic area than many of us are used to seeing. With those factors it seemed to make some sense to leave the twins where they were with their friends and give them some stability. Putting the sextuplets in the same school then was logical.

I also think that there is a big dose of pride or snobbery with Kate in having her children at that school.

It is by most reports a good school and the biggest drawback is the commute which other children are also enduring for the sake of going there. It isn't the worst parental decision she's made by a long shot and even if her reasons aren't good at least this one isn't actively harming the children.

Jane in CA said...

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

Sure, but that would have been more obvious. This way, she can claim "it's a great school, and many students commute" without being so obvious that one of the big perks (to her) is less time with the kids at home.

Also, it's an ego boost. I'm sure she feels more important because her children attend a private school rather than a public one.

To Be or Not to be! said...

We are saying it is a lot of hours for the kids to travel, probably they are saying "Thank goodness she enrolled us in that school, at least it is two hours less with Mommie Dearest!

Hippie Chick said...

To Be or Not To Be!.... I would be thinking the same thing if I were a G kid; "Less time with the tyrant". But I would also be thinking; 'Dammit, I'm tired". WHY does this woman not want to spend time with her kids unless filming? Oooh right! MONEY! Unless those cameras are rolling, her kids are useless to her.

Jon tweeted this BTW: Obviously there is no gag order. First amendment. Freedom of speech. I can tweet.

IssysMom said...

I wonder if the kids really are glad to be away from Kate. Sadly, to them this is how mothers behave because it's all they know and they're probably desperate for the smallest crumb of affection. For all the dumb choices Jon has made, at least he is a loving and affectionate dad.

Monster Mommy said...

Kate in that cap at the tanning salon is pure awful. Her sense of style is hysterical. The hooker heels with jeans, that are way too long (dragging on the ground... eew). And that top is too teeny-tiny for shoving the fake boobs into. She has made her children into slaves, only to support her trashy look. She sure has aged 10+ years... Not a look anyone wears well.

No Worry, Beef Curry said...

@ Hippie Chick...

I LOVE that Jon is using Twitter as his personal PR outlet, in order to set the record straight. He can tweet all he wants... Freedom of speech lives!

I adore your updates- HC. If you would, please keep us posted when he sends out anything relevant. Go Jon! Don't ever stop fighting for your children... I support you.

Shear the Sheeple! said...

The picture I would LOVE to see is a wide-angle shot of the paps taking pictures of her. Because I am sure if we pulled back, it really would be just one pap in the parking lot.
Please, please, someone get that shot!!!!!

(Actually, I think it really is the case, or we might see at least one picture that shows the "throngs" of photographers because that would prove how popular she really is.)

Kate in that cap at the tanning salon is pure awful.

All summer long Kate was photographed dressed head to toe (pumping gas, Target, Fed Ex etc) in designer duds, professionally styled hair and makeup. Cleavage bearing tops, mini skirts, short shorts accessorized with stiletto heels. Then the bikini clad Kate on the cover of People magazine. Apparantly Kate took her Hollywood 'single' mom of 8 I do it ALL alone, persona a bit too the extreme. Thus the present day MAKEOVER of a more haggard, tired, makeup less, cap wearing Kate.

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

Maybe in this case. However, I have seen gag orders imposed that include any kind of communication -- written or verbal. It all depends on the order of the court. There is no "freedom of speech" when a signed order is put into effect.

It's the hair that is so pathetic! If that's what they do at chic NYC studios, I'll stick with Cost-Cutters in PA!

Hippie Chick said...

More Jon tweets:

Someone telling Jon there was filing at PartyCity:

Jon: Really? Well that's interesting. Once again, filming without my parental consent.

Jon: I don't read anything so I don't know unless someone tells me.

And then someone asking him if there was ever a gag order in place:

Jon: No there was not and is not. You're welcom!!

Jon: Obviously there is no gag order. First amendment. Freedom of speech. I can tweet.

(interesting)

Paisley said...

If that private school was so important to Kate/Jon, why didn't they move closer instead of further away? They had a choice and they chose distance.

bonehead said...

Just read on another site, that on 10/27, Kate was filming for hours during school time with purse boy and all 8 kids at Party City, for Halloween. The employees were told to pretend that they did not know who Kate is. The one employee Tweeter this and also said that Kate was tryin to look totally perfect. Is she nuts, taking your kids out of school so they can buy Halloween stuff, that does prove that Kate only cares about the money, not her kids education. Just like holding them back in school, cause she will not work with them or get help to get the tups whop are behind help. She is worse than Mommie dearest.

Hippie Chick said...

PS...I know I had already told you all about the gag order Tweet, that was the whole tweet...sorry!!

Hippie Chick :)

bonehead said...

Oh, yeah, that was wednesday and the article also said that there were a lot of paps there. Gee, how funny is that. Cause there has been no pics of Kate and kids published. So is TLC getting desperate, hiring lots of pretend paps?.

Interesting. IIRC, due to personal choice or religious reasons, Halloween is not a 'day' that the Gosselin family acknowledge or participate in.

fidosmommy said...

The ORIGINAL post about the trip to Party City noted the Gosselins were there around 5:00, which could mean they stopped by on their way home from school. If you look at the picture of them exiting the store, the sun reflecting on the plate glass looks to be fairly low in the sky, so it may have been 5:30 or so when they left the store. If the kids get out of school at 3:00 (?), then this time frame may work.

Either way, "hours" seems like an awful long time to be in one store.

Yes, they did say they do not acknowledge or participate in Halloween. Didn't they also at some point say they abstain from the easter bunny and Santa Claus as well? But that's when their "brand" was being pious christians. They have since rebranded to accomodate more income generation and that means
Halloween is now definitely "in."

fidosmommy said...

If their school (which is private but not religiously affiliated)
has a Halloween Costume Day, it might have been plain mean of Kate to tell them they didn't get to participate. So, I would say that in this instance, Kate may have felt she did not want to keep them from this aspect of "being normal kids".

Just a thought.
