Kate and The Today Show, December 1

I have to admit that I hope she gets bumped.  I can't think of any good reason for Kate to be on.

I bet she will say how much her kids love the show, the show isn`t to blame and that the kids didnt like spending time with Jon over the weekend.


I would like to see Jon side. but he cant due to tlc.

Tami said...

I can't understand why they'd have her on. They are not that desperate! She has no relevance anymore. What could they expect her to say? And if she is on, are they going to finally call her on her behavior or just make it a fluff piece again? How maddening. Tell her to pull the plug if it's hurting the kids this much! Matt has had NO problems being confrontational to many guests on the show.

hayden said...

You're right, Tami.... Matt has been confrontational with many guests (most recently with Kanye West) and Al Roker of all people raked Spencer and Heidi over the coals. Yes, while they are annoying and as fake as Kate- they are two consenting adults. They are not dragging 8 helpless little kids on their reality TV voyage. I thought it was very harsh the way Al treated them. Why won't anyone ever hold Kate's feet to the fire and call BS on her?

I really hope Kate is not doing Today to spin and not answer more questions about the expulsions. And as far as Jon bashing, I don't understand how Kate is allowed but not Jon. When Jon tweeted the day of the hearing where it was decided filming could resume without Jon's consent, Kate's lawyer said something about him violating a gag order. Okay.... then where's Kate's gag?

I don't get it said...

You have to remember Merideth V. LOVES Kate. She has stood up for her time and again and stated she cannot understand why people are so "mean" to her. She's not a very bright or entertaining woman so maybe she really relates to Kate. Teflon Kate lives to see yet another media opportunity.

zoey said...

If she does bash Jon yet again, it will all catch up with her eventually. she may escape the today show with no public lynching, but she will get it all when those kids are able to understand it all.
everything she has said it out there on the internet waiting for those Gosselin kids to find!

zoey said...

And another thing, how long can she go on saying her kids LOVE the show and would be so mad if the show was taken away.... kids love candy and junk food too- doesnt mean your a bad parent for saying "NO MORE!"

Vanessa said...

They keep panning over to her, keeping the suspense going (ha), "up next" "coming up after your local news" "coming up next"
WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO HER FACE???
That grimace is just so...so...
She looks NOTHING like her old self.
Waiting to hear what lies she spins so early in the morning, the chipmunks in her head must be spinning overtime! She's probably dreaming of her pillow at this hour.

Mary said...

I don't keep up with the Gosselin train wreck anymore, but I managed to see Kate on the Today Show.....all I can say is that she is a big, fat liar !

Reading news said...

While flipping through the dials this morning what to my wandering eye should appear - okay, not reindeer but could have been with the hairdo she was sporting. My heavens, was that a hairpiece on the top of her head? Somehow it didn't seem to belong with the rest.

I don't think she will ever go away. She is a born actress and the manner she spews those lies is absolutely amazing. I couldn't believe her tale that the arrangements with the time the kids spend with Jon is amicable on her part. What? what is amicable about your kids being driven to the end of the driveway while their father waits outside the gate.

How truly sad! I truly believe that she believes her own lies.

SarahP said...

She is going to blame everything on Jon. She already has on People.com. Saying the kids were missing their dad and that is why they are not in school.
http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20446198,00.html
I don't understand how she can continue to bash him and blame it all on him. From the clips on tv, he was always the hands on dad doing the dressing, cleaning, taking care of. She was always exhausted.

HW said...

I started watching Kate on the Today Show but thankfully my son saved me from myself when he called from his duty station to have a little chat. A much better way to spend my time!!! It looked as though Meredith was throwing softball questions at her and letting her get away with lies.

We don't expect anything more from Kate but, wow, Meredith, where is your integrity? Of course I didnt' see it all so maybe things were more honest than my first impression was leading me to believe.

Maggie said...

Yes, Kate said that the kids were NOT expelled; the decision was mutual. The kids are thriving being homeschooled by a teacher along with weekly counseling. And Kate hopes the kids return to school before the end of December when school breaks. She thinks this is "totally, totally normal and nothing abnormal about this "mutual decision" for C & A. The kids were having a hard time with the divorce and had anger issues. Kate stated MANY times that this situation happens ALL the time with other kids whose parents are divorced. She said there was nothing "abnormal" about it.

She said Jon never asked for her forgiveness when Meridith quoted Jon saying that he felt very bad for all that happened in 2009 and had asked all--including Kate--for her forgiveness. Though Jon never asked Kate except through tv, she has forgiven him for the sake of her children.

Kate said there are no problems with the kids spending time with both Jon and her for the holidays. Kate is the one who initiates the call to Jon for both to agree on the holiday schedule.

Finally, Kate said, "Kate Plus 8" has no plans of being cancelled. And she thinks all of the traveling opportunities and all the benefits of her "working" with her children filming is fantastic and 100% beneficial. Those are my adjectives but you get the point.

And by the way, ALL the other kids are doing great; they couldn't be better.

Tami said...

I don't know where her gag order is. WHY is she allowed to give details of the kids' lives? Jon says anything and is threatened by lawyers. How totally ridiculous that there is not a lawyer out there who can help Jon and end this double standard. Are they all in a coma or something? Where is the pit bull lawyer who will come out screaming today that Kate violated an order for the TWO of them to not talk about the kids? She violated their privacy. It can't be just for one parent..it just can't : (

last2cu said...

Again Kate seems to have slithered onto another show! The Today Show is such a scam and Meredith always plays softball with Kate asking her only fluff questions. And again Kate threw Jon under the bus.. All we can hope is that Jon grows himself a pair and gets a good attorney and he takes his children back. That house is supposed to be the kids house and Jon and Kate change instead of the children. This is a very sad situation. Hopefully these tough times will give the children strength. Trust me they will not forget what she has done to them and Kate will pay sooner or later.

faline said...

The Huffington Post has the headline"Kate Gosselin: My kids were not expelled!" saying how the school could not meet her kids needs.
Sound familiar? It's the same reason why she no longer has her parents in her or her kids lives: they don't know how to help us!

Your kids were expelled because you didn't bother to teach them that hitting others was wrong, learning shapes, colors and numbers
before age six is good, and children being exploited on reality tv by their mother is bad.

so sick of her said...

What a liar. Kate is still blaming Jon. Nothing new about that. Kate says straight out: I do it for the kids and income, cause this is what the kids are use to. And they are not expelled, I just decided that they are gonna be pulled out of school, so they can deal with anger issues, from the divorce. I only know of a few people who have pulled their kids out of school, because they decided to Home school, nobody I know, pulls their kids out voluntary. The whole anger issues are her fault. As for blaming it on the divorce, that was a year ago, why haven't the other kids acted out, or have they already? The kids miss their Dad, GEEZ Kate I wonder why? Could it be that you cut down the visitation time Jon had in the last few times in court? I wonder what happen yesterday in court?

Ohio Buckeye said...

Just caught Richard Dreyfuss on the morning show. What a meaningful and powerful message for all he gave. To place Kate Gosselin on the same program would be completely disconcerting and a slap in the face to Mr. Dreyfuss and any and all of us who agreed with his hope for America and its younger generation.

A rousing "Hooray!" for Mr. Dreyfus.

An equally heartfelt "Leave and Don't Come Back" to Kate Gosselin. Take your psychiatric problems and work on them privately without dragging the rest of us through the mire you have created for yourself and your 8 kids, K8G.

eileen said...

Just watched the interview ... she says her children are doing "wonderful" (then corrects herself to "wonderfully") about ten times ... talks about the two with "after divorce anger issues" and how they weren't expelled (yeah, right)... near the end she gets in a dig on Jon when Meredith mentions how Jon apologized to her on Twitter and Kate says she was never apologized to in person ... guess it's hard for Jon to do since Khate's the one who pulled the plug on the marriage in the first place... Just another line of crap Khate gets to spew to her bff, Meredith...oh, yeah, and says *her* show isn't cancelled...puke!

Maggie said...

Everyone please go to the Today website and post a comment. Just click on Kate's interview and at the bottom is where you can post. You do NOT have to sign up. It is very simple. I wrote a negative comment and they immediately posted it on their website.

Please, the Today Show needs to hear from us. Please take a minute and do this. Thank you.

PA G-ma said...

The weather is horrible today in PA and I was channel surfing to get the local updates. I happened upon the end of the K8 interview on the Today show. What a crock!
K8 stated that the 2 kids have a tutor and are getting therapy to get them back into school before the end of the year. I got the impression that she thinks that this is just an educational one and not a behavioral problem. From what I have observed in Pa schools, children with learning problems usually not for the lack of such.

Shame on Meredith for making Jon a major subject of this interview. If she is so interested in what is up with Jon, invite him on the show to get his side. Meredith read and displayed Jon's apology to family, friends and K8 and good old K8 said she never got a "personal apology" from Jon. WTH? She wnet on blabbing that he never calls her but she calls him to "discus problems and give him solutions" like she always did. This woman has real problems and needs therapy herself.

I did like the red dress!

Mary Beth said...

I was curious to see what Khate had to say so I watched the video on NBC's website....

I had to turn it off....!

WONDERFULLY...WONDERFULLY....
...WONDERFULLY.....WONDERFULLY....

...if all was so WONDERFUL why is she on explaining the "tabloid rumors".....

I don't think she'll ever go away....
like bedbug infestation...

Maggie said...

Everyone you can also go to Today's Facebook page and comment under Kate section. About 97% of the comments are negative. Please let's bombard the Today Show and tell them we aren't buying her lies. Thanks again.

Jennifer said...

It was a well rehearsed bunch of lies. The only thing that came off as truthful to me was when she said she was angry. But then she follows that up with saying what good does it do to live like that? HA! I haven't watched the show in a long time, but she was always angry.
I also thought it was great when she said that when she is communicating with Jon, she tries to treat him like she always did. Well, that's real friendly. ;)
I think if there was ever a nuclear blast all that would be left is a cockroach and Kate Gosselin.

Nova said...

Well, just heard that Khate was on the Today Show. Just tuned in and immediately saw the piece. Meredith V did the interview, and it was total fluff and damage control.
Kate says that she and the kids "all feel wonderful", but she has them in an "accelerated school" & because of Alexis and Collin's anger over the divorce they were falling behind, so she took them out and they are now being taught by a tutor. The rest of the kids are supposedly happy and doing well. A and C will go back to school soon....
Khate also says that her kids have always "followed the path, this is the first time any of them were not following the path".
She says she has a truce with Jon, have worked out the holidays and they're not a problem - "we share equally", but adds that the kids want to be 'home' for Christmas morning, meaning with her.
Khate says "I try to talk to Jon normally, peacefully". She is aware that he twittered that he made mistakes in the past, but wants a personal apology from Jon for his behavior. But she also makes sure to point out that she's such a saint that she has forgiven him anyway. She also went on to add that "people close to me are annoyed with me for not being more upset with him". Aww, such a soft touch, aren't you, Khate?
Insists that the show is best ofr the kids, and Jon is wrong for wanting it to stop, and the judge was right. Said something about how the show is not providing "trips for a lifetime", but at this point I was so angry and trying to type notes to keep up that I missed just exactly what she said, but I think she was saying that the show doesn't just provide trips but is so much more than that.
Khate insisted yet again that the show was wonderful, and wouldn't do it if it weren't. Yeah, I bet she meant that the show was wonderful for *her*.
Then the last thing she said with a little laugh was that the show was not cancelled.
Meredith is a nice lady, but I have lost a ton of respect for her today. Enough already - call a spade a spade and call Khate the lying, cheating, whorish woman and the abusive and neglectful breeder she is.

Save the Gosselin 8!

Kateisaliar said...

Kate to set the record straight? Why not be truthful and say Kate's PR person hounded us until we let her on to spew her PR piece?

Barbra said...

loved seeing ms. fashion mistake, I mean plate, picked a real hairstyle role model, Snookie! Great choice, kate.

Off Topic, but did anyone see how hard she slugged the guy that brought the dog house when she said 'great job' on building the house?

She hasn't changed, so no wonder those kids SHOW aggression physically, WonderMom does it so it MUST be OK.

Charlie Rose said...

This woman has no shame. She not only lied to the public but also her children. They know the truth about being expelled and they also know the truth about their dad. She really is digging a bit deeper, isn't she?

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

It seems like K8 is jealous of Jon. He went on with his life and is no longer under her control. He is not walking the straight line following Her Hinnyness. I think that Jon bashing makes her feel superior. Time to give up on the Jon issue. She is so tiresome, boring and predictably nauseating.

silimom said...

I find it interesting that Kate is the only "celebrity" I know of who feels compelled to go on national tv to dispel tabloid rumors. Most true celebs seem to ignore what's written most of the time. It seems very rare for a celeb to sue a tabloid, although it does happen and the tabloid then backs down. Hmmm, Kate - maybe you should give suing the paps a try for a change?

Personally I think the Today show was simply an excuse to go to New York for a mini vacation to shop and get her hair done.

Shame Shame said...

What she didn't take that opportunity to talk about Twisted Khate that is supposed to air in December, oh but wait it is December. I wonder if Meredith felt the need for a hot shower after her love fest with the most horrible mother of all time.

I thought that she was there to talk about what is coming up for her? Not just your typical Jon bashing.

At least Meredith did get a part of Jon's side in actually showing his tweet. She seemed a little surprised at that.

I must say Khate was not her usual giddy self. She must still be angry that she can't hold hands with Steve in public. She is wearing brown contacts I do believe.

silimom said...

"That house is supposed to be the kids house and Jon and Kate change instead of the children."
*******

The switching off at the house was only an agreement between Jon and Kate while the divorce was being negotiated. In the final divorce settlement, Kate bought Jon out of his share of the house and in exchange, he relinquished his interest in the house by signing a quitclaim deed.

It has been reported that the family court judge at the time the divorce was finalized required Jon to put the money he received for his share of the home into an escrow account to be used to make his monthly child support obligation. Jon cannot touch that money and Kate receives an automatic payment from that account.

So no, the house does not belong to the kids in any legal sense. Even if Kate has placed it in a trust, as the owner of the trust she can make changes to it at any time. So sorry, but the house belongs to "Mine, all mine as far as the eye can see" Kate. She does not have to let Jon or anyone else onto the property if she doesn't want to.

Anonymous said...

Kate kept stressing that acting out is completely normal for kids of families going through a divorce.

I know kids in a family going through a divorce sometimes act out, but how many must leave school temporarily, even by mutual agreement?

K8STFU said...

How many times does K8 feel the need to "set the record straight", "start a new life" or "tell her story" ?

I didn't need to see the segment to know that it would be just more lies and BS.

BasementDweller said...

Let me get this straight - the school couldn't meet the kids' needs, her parents didn't know how to help her, Tony didn't know how to teach her... Wow. Wonder what the problem is, Katie Irene.

debbiejo said...

Kate: When you read this, why are you not aware that when you self righteously criticize the childrens father, you are criticizing someone they love.

you SAY they need to be with both parents, but they also need to LOVE both parents. Your snide, manipulative remarks, "he has not apologized to me", will someday be listened to by your children, by HIS children and they will resent YOU, not him! Children need to love their parents, and do love him and will resent you for snide talk about their daddy.

Take it to the bank, they'll hate you for it.

Today show wouldn't let me post... said...

Maggie said...
Everyone please go to the Today website and post a comment. Just click on Kate's interview and at the bottom is where you can post.

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

I tried to post my comments and got a message that because I was a new user, my comments would not be posted. They would go to the greenlist or something like that. But was happy to see that 99% of the people who could post are sick of Kate and her lies!!

HW said...

I wonder why Meredith didn't ask Kate if she'd ever apologized to Jon. Seems like a valid question. She did, after all, treat him like garbage for the world to witness, travelled with a male 'body guard' while she was still married even when Jon was unhappy about it, and refuses to let Jon enter his children's home when he picks them up for visitation.

During the small portion of the interview that I saw, I noticed that Kate's hands were moving in such a flurry it was like a young child trying to make up a story as she went along. She was obviously nervous and had no idea how to answer the questions because she knew she wasn't "taking the high road" and telling the truth.

Anonymous said...

I went to the Today Show site to see her clip. After stumbling over her lies, she ended the interview by saying she is "Living Her Dream Life" Wonder if she ever considered her DREAM life is the kids worst NIGHTMARE!

Kateisfulloflies said...

LOL, what money from the house? It has depreciated since they bought it. To buy Jon out all Kate would have had to give him was half the net worth. There wasn't any. The house value at the divorce was very close to the mortgaged amount if I remember the numbers correctly.

Leigh Ann said...

Finally, Kate said, "Kate Plus 8" has no plans of being cancelled. And she thinks all of the traveling opportunities and all the benefits of her "working" with her children filming is fantastic and 100% beneficial. Those are my adjectives but you get the point.
----------
Wasn't she on Sundays at 9? I watched The Little Couple last night and every other commercial was for some show about Alabama women during what I thought was Kate's timeslot. Not that they couldn't have moved her, but no mention of her show. I suppose they could be on hiatus until spring. But I'll be surprised if they're back.

Rebecca said...

Is Kate stupid or delusional? Pulling in 1.3M is not going to result in much more if any more production. TLC seldom "cancels" shows. Instead they put it on hiatus indefinitely or they simply don't renew a contract. She'll figure it out in a few months perhaps. The Roloffs were terminated with better numbers than Kate has now.

tell me something new for once said...

Didn't watch, but pulled this from one of the many articles on the web about it, "Despite the recent difficulties, Gosselin insists starring on television isn’t one of her children’s problems. In fact, she says it’s in their best interest to remain reality TV regulars."

Reality TV regulars...sounds like she wants to stick around awhile, huh. And did she use the word "strangely" enough in one interview?

This is so old and stale. Just the same old justifications. You know, the ones that aren't holding water anymore in her sieve of excuses.

Midwest Teacher said...

I just wrote in to the Today Show about my disgust with them and how they continue to show support of this woman. It's disgusting and always so one-sided. I was always a Meredith Viera fan before. I wish Matt would interview her and put her on the spot like he has with Kanye West, Tom Cruise, etc.

Awful!!! And please, the show is done!

You'd think with articles like this about her appearances, she'd learn to stay home and keep her mouth shut.

zoey said...

I guess she opened up the dictionary and pointed to random word.... "wonderfully"
she decided to use that word as often as she can. I wonder what Wonderfully word she will choose tomorrow

Excellent impressive comment! It is a keeper. It is her own words used against her.

Monster Mommy said...

It's actually quite simple.

The Today Show had Kate on this morning, because Meredith IS a Sheeple. People Magazine's Kate Coyne- another Sheeple. Mary Hart and Billy Bush, you ask? You got it... more Sheeple. There are still a few television personalities left, that don't do their homework... and buy right in, to Kate Gosselin's perpetual lies. She calls the expulsion rumors "A private matter". Then once she's got her story straight (and cash offers)-- goes on ET, The Today Show, and her own Reality TV show, talking all about her kids' problems. I'm just waiting on People's next issue... "Private School Doesn't Know HOW to Help Kate". Interesting that she slipped today, and said she agreed with the school and pulled them out. Sounds like an ULTIMATUM to me!

winsomeone said...

I don't understand what the bait and switch thing with the Sunday show was supposed to accomplish? Was TLC trying to fool itself? They would know they did the switch, and any increase in the ratings would be false, so why bother? Just to try and fool us? Doesn't make sense.

sillimom said...

Loved Perez's comments and have to share: Oh for goodness sake! Kate Gosselin is speaking out again about two of her children's recent expulsion from school, and although that's essentially what it is, she not only refuses to admit it, but is also putting its blame on her ex-husband, Jon! She says: "The school would never use that word. [Collin and Alexis] were not expelled. [The school] did not feel like they could meet their needs anymore, so it was decided they should leave, for now. They've been the ones to verbalize the most that they miss Daddy. I could see that they're the ones struggling the most. [Collin] was upset and saying things out of frustration – he'd crumple his papers and throw them on the floor. Alexis was angry in a different way. She didn't want to sit still. She'd get up and want to run around. I've kept the stability, the income – everything that they know and love – I've come through on that. I am doing what my kids need me to do. That's really all that matters." So sad. There are clearly a lot more underlying issues with these children than they miss their father, and we think that the longer Kate refuses to acknowledge that she, too, may play a role in why they're acting out, the worse it's going to be for them. Stability and income are important, but maybe they wouldn't be so angry if Mom was less focused on her celebrity status and ca$hing in on her kids and more on being with her family! Just saying!

Merrilee said...

Tony didn't know how to teach Kate to dance. It was his fault she danced like a "frock on a hanger."

It was all his fault.

Her parents don't know how to help her, so they have no place in the lives of their grand-children.

The school doesn't know how to teach her kids. It is the school's fault her kids are a bit anti-social.

Everybody is at fault except her Royal Hindend.

Nobody knows how to help Kate or her kids.

Nobody.

Hmmmmmm, is there a pattern here?

??

Dena said...

It simple math: the common denominator in all K8's problems is Kate.

Monster Mommy said...

Oh, amazing. I sure didn't have to wait very long for Kate to talk to People.com -

Thanks for the update, SarahP.

IDModo said...

In 33 years of working as a therapist with children who had behaviour problems,(usually due to some form of child abuse), I can onnly recall fewer than 10 cases of kindergarten children who were expelled from school.

These were children who had much more complicated lives than a divorce more than 2 years in the past.

Kate has spoken to some other mothers who believe this situation is "normal". In what universe?

My google a/c is not working right, but this is really me.

Jane in California said...

Per Kate: "[The school] did not feel like they could meet their needs anymore, so it was decided they should leave, for now."

As others have already said -- once again, it's not Kate's fault her children are acting out so badly, they are asked to leave their private school. No, "the school couldn't meet their needs." Just like Kate's parents "didn't know how to help." Just like everything else, it's put on the shoulders of the other party, rather than Kate might be doing something wrong and that's why her kids are acting out.

I was also amused that she explained that Alexis expresses anger and frustration by refusing to sit still, and by running around. Uh, isn't that a) either a 6-year old's normal high energy, or b) a possible indication that your child might have ADD, ADHD, or some such issue? To attribute this behavior to anger at Jon is completely self-serving of Kate.

I don't care how long TLC, under the umbrella of Disney, tries to stuff Kate down our throats as anything but a vile creature. You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time. No matter how they try to dress her up, make her appealing, etc. -- she can't hide her true ugly nature.

Ravello said...

Smug, self centered and thoroughly pleased with herself. The McMansion is the happiest place on earth, all 8 kids are Harvard bound. She lies so much she believes her own spin. The 8 kids are doomed.

MaryB said...

Even the Kate Adoration Society has to wonder about a mom who denies denies denies.
Kate is brushing aside a very serious and sad issue.
Her little "poor pitiful me my kids are great" tour will back fire.
What mother does this to her children?

Victoria said...

The only plausible explanation I can come up with about why these interviewers (including Meredith Vieira, Mary Hart, Barbara Walters) give Kate Gosselin a "pass" is that (1) they never watched the Jon & Kate Plus Eight show to see firsthand Kate's bullying, bad behavior and phony persona, and (2) Kate benefited from having the PR firm and the TLC promoters pushing her, and feeding them the "lie of the month" - poor mom of multiples with the cheating hubby just tryin' to make it in a cold, cruel world with a purse full o' bills.

I think the interviewers themselves have probably felt the sting of disapproval and probably felt somewhat empathetic. But shame on them and their shallow producers and production assistants for not doing their research!

Captain of the Titanic said...

I guess the reason that Kate is never asked the difficult questions on these tv interviews is because they aren't really interviews. Nope, they are paid infomercials. TLC must pay for the spot just like a commercial and the show puts it on like it is reality. And we all know what "reality" means in Kate-speak, don't we?

NoUse4Kate said...

It's refreshing reading the comments at the various sites. There is NO MORE LOVE FOR k8. Everyone hates her except for the few azzhats like BM. What Jon endured under her rule seems to be more understood the more she puts herself out there and opens her mouth. People see him in a completely different light now than they did a year ago. He's definitely not perfect, but he is definitely the better of the two parents.

Keep giving the interviews k8, keep running away from your kids every chance you can, keep blaming Jon, just keep on doing what you are doing. You are about 7 feet in the hole you've dug for your grave...just a little bit more and all of this trash will be over and done with. At that point, maybe she can seek therapy to find out why everything went so wrong and figure it out, that she was the problem, not everyone else....then again, like it was discussed on one of my favorite shows last night, a narcissist is truly difficult, if not impossible to turn around. Too bad for those kids and those that are in contact with her. :/

Sharon said...

WTH, I signed on to AOL this morning,and in the AOL news was first, a man holding a sign looking for work because his unemployment ended. The second was Kates ugly face boohooing, and lying about her kids anti-social behavior.. How can they put kate, and some poor guy who is looking for work, on the same page.
She is a nobody who has made a lot of money off the back of her children with her lies..Please someone make sense of this for me..

Anonymous said...

Re: K8G's claim it was not an expulsion, but, rather 'a mutual decision'.

Yes. Like when your boss calls you into his office and has security usher you out the company's front door - you haven't been fired, it was just another 'mutual decision'.

How DUMB does this woman think we are?

Can't See Sheep said...

What a nightmare this all sounds like. Didn't see it, but am not suprised by what I'm reading, it's true, disgusting narcissist style. Blame everyone & everything under the sun but herself. I am suprised she hasn't blamed the dog for not listening well enough to the children.

This deny, deny, deny is going to bite her in the butt one day very soon when those kids become teenagers & like their mother refuse to be accountable for their actions, that should be fun for her. She certainly has a warped idea of what living a dream is because it sure seems like more of a nightmare to me.

The Jon bashing is also going to bite her in the butt. He has to be silent, he can't say anything, but she bashes & bashes & the press on Jon is gradually becoming more & more positive.

She has really got to stop playing the martyr, because the more she plays it the more & more obvious it's becoming to the rest of the world that she isn't. Certainly sounds like the N. personality was out in full force today.

The kids need a therapist just to help them deal with the "mother" they got saddled with, not to mention everyting else.

Hambone said...

This woman lies as easily as she blinks. We all saw that with the boob job denial. Something we KNOW she had and lied about. And she didn't even flinch when she lied.

So why would anybody believe one word she said on The Today Show?

She's proven over and over again that she cannot be truthful about much of anything.

She has this "issue" of once something leaves her lips, even she believes it, whether it's true or not.

Then she feels victimized because people question her.

It absolutely AMAZES me that she will time and time again take as many pot shots at Jon on national tv as she can.

When will she ever grow up? Doesn't she see how this anger and hatred she has just makes HER look bad?

I've seen kids and teenagers with terrible lying issues, but as far as an adult woman with 8 kids goes, Kate takes the lying prize, hands down!

Jane mentioned: I don't care how long TLC, under the umbrella of Disney, tries to stuff Kate down our throats as anything but a vile creature. You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time.

Not that it matters who is responsible for this broadcast nightmare, but TLC/Discovery is not a Disney-owned asset. You can blame them for Camp Rock and High School Musical, but not for the torture of the G8.

hayden said...

Let me try to make sense of all this, there are so many lies I'm having trouble sorting them out.

Two tups are no longer going to school, Kate does not feel the need to "set the record straight" for what, 3 weeks (waited until it was closer to her new gig.) Then, ET names her special correspondent to a z-list reality show. Mary Hart interviews her to promote SWTS, but it's advertised with a big EXPELLED? Kate does not say if they were expelled, just that they are working with a tutor, and acts vague about it. Then a week later she goes on Today and says the word expelled was never used and denies it. The two tups miss their Daddy and have anger. Really? If they miss Daddy why would "a bunch of them" always call you to come home early from Daddy's like you claimed on Regis & Kelly?

Sounds to me like when a video came out of the kids screaming in terror over being brought back to Kate, she "set the record straight" by acting like the kids don't even want to be with Jon and bashing him. Months later when two of them are kicked out of school, it's still Jon's fault because now they miss him and have anger. God help those poor kids.

Kitty The Dog's Blog said...

I watched the video but didn't see where to leave a comment. The video played and then started over and the player was the only thing in the window. I'll leave a comment on their FB page.

Like many posters have said "if her lips are moving, she's lying".

She stated that the kids are in an "academically excelling" school. I think I know what she means and if that is the case and they are "behind" and don't know such simple things as what a triangle is, they are just being set up for failure. I went to private schools growing up and they are so competitive and stressful. Those factors coupled with having to film for their supper and having Khate for a mother must be so hard.

If its true, Im glad the kids are in therapy, but obviously she needs to be also. ITA that Meredith has no integrity and hope against hope that someone will call Khate out on her lies.

I've posted many times the kids and Jon are victims of Parental Alienation Syndrome. The only good news about this is that when the kids gain autonomy, usually when they are adults, they seek out the targeted parent (Jon, in this case) and cut the alienating parent out of their lives. By that time though they may have multiple psychological issues and no money because mommy spent it. I hope Jon is documenting everything and recording those "amicable" phone calls Khate claims she is initiating.

Kate has spoken to some other mothers who believe this situation is "normal". In what universe?
**************************
Who would be these mothers? According to sad and lonely Kate, no one speaks to her, acknowledges her, even the locals.
Stars and Celebrities confiding in Kate? Nope.

Don'tBelieveHer said...

Hello! Long-time reader, first time poster... I have lots I'd like to say, but I have to agree with the way I often see it put here regarding Her Royal High-n-Mighty, which is..."Wow, just wow." That Today Show / TLC PR business this morning was classic Kate: Bouncy foot. Bad hair. "Look at my nails" hand waving. Lies. "Wonderfully" strange all around. Ugh.

readerlady said...

So poor Katie Irene Kreider never got a face-to-face apology from Jon. Boo frickin' hoo. Tell me, Khate, did YOU ever apologize to Jon, either face-to-face or in any other method, for demeaning and emasculating him on virtually every episode since the inception of Jon and Kate + 8? Did you apologize to him for forcing him to cut his mother and his brothers out of his life? Did you apologize to him for trying to turn his children against him? Did you apologize to him for forcing him to quit his job and then sitting back, silent, while the rest of the world bashed him for being a lazy do-nothing bum? Did you apologize to him for refusing to go to counseling and for ending the marriage? Did you apologize to him for trying to force him to live a lie for over a year? What's that? No? Thought not. I'd say your refusal to apologize for anything trumps his alleged failure to apologize to you face-to-face.

pinkdiamond611 said...

And the reason why Kart was on the Today show was. . . .? Shrugging my shoulders, and really disappointed that a "news-based" cough cough sure, show would waste airtime on her, a nobody. I wish Meredith would have asked, if this "tutor" is a PA certified teacher, or is it true that her childhood friend, Carla, is doing the tutoring.

I want to be sure about Team Jon said...

NoUse4Kate: (part of longer comment) "He's definitely not perfect, but he is definitely the better of the two parents."
-------------------------
Interesting how it's come 'round. Although he is INDEED not perfect and I've been disgusted with some of his past behavior...I'm not talking about his partying, but when he threw Collin's sticks away, arm yanked and essentially was aligned with Kate in the early days on the filming and freebies...a lot of posters, including me, kept holding out hope that Jon would mature and come through for his kids because we saw just enough to get the gut feeling that his heart was in it when Kate's wasn't. She left so much work to him but he didn't really complain and we've seen genuine love between him and his kids (and he could see he needed to get the dogs out of there, at least). I can remember him speaking loudly to Kate about all she needed to do once in awhile was to just lighten up and PLAY with her children. It's such a murky mess with these two parents that of course ONE has to come out looking better than the other I guess, but some little voice has always had me wanting to take up Jon's side. I haven't heard that little voice in my head where Kate's involved since, wow, when the tups were tiny infants and I was blinded temporarily by sheepleness until common sense cured me. I just hope upon hope that Jon is a bright light for his children in the darkness of many of their days.

No Worry, Beef Curry said...

For Buckeye...

I agree about Richard Dreyfus. Having America's Domestic Goddess, Martha Stewart on the same show as well! I bet Kate would have loved to have shared her "Original" 4th of July Blueberry/Strawberry Whipped Cream Cake with Ms. Stewart. What a JOKE . More lies... No surprise!

Now please excuse me GWOP, while I go write my letter to the Today Show.

Ravello said...
Smug, self centered and thoroughly pleased with herself.
=========================
You're right, you're right. SMUG. That's the word. Haughty and pompous. I actually don't think it's an act. I don't think it's a defensive mask. I think she actually believes herself, and I truly do believe she thinks the rest of us are stupid and gullible, probably because she's gotten away with so much for so long. Kate thinks she's a winner. She thinks her schemes are continuing to work in her favor. She thinks she's special. Different. Smarter. It's really stunning to see in front of your own eyes that people like this really do exist in the world. I mean, you really have to see it to believe it. And Kate Gosselin makes sure we see her. I think she has no idea how much it's backfiring on her. I'm thinking like many others here...let her keep telling her same old tired story, over and over again. Be on as many TV programs and magazine interviews possible. Her exposure is sealing her fate. Some people don't know when to leave. Others don't know when to shut up. But they'll continue to blame everybody else for their rise and fall.

I love the "Poetry for Young People" series of books. The one on Rudyard Kipling has a page called Natural Theology. If I may quote, it says: "Humor and history again join forces to teach a lesson...this time, to demonstrate that even though we can't know beforehand the consequences of our actions, we must still take responsibility for the choices we make. Here, in a few stanzas, Kipling shows how believers of various sorts blame God for the suffering they've brought on themselves:

'I ate my fill of a whale that died
And stranded after a month at sea
There is a pain in my inside.
Why have the Gods afflicted me?

And this one:

'We had a kettle: we let it leak;
Our not repairing it made it worse.
We haven't had any tea for a week...
The bottom is out of the Universe!'

If Kate ever read the classics to her eight children, she might benefit from poets' wisdom from other centuries...but, wait, I'm talking about Kate, and she thinks she knows it all. It seems unlikely she could benefit or learn from anybody trying to point out things she could be doing differently and how liberating it is to let go, admit some failure and know she'd grow out that into a better person.

Ohio Buckeye said...

@ReaderLady: Heck no, K8G never apologized to Jon (or anyone else) as far as we know. K8G seems to think nothing is ever HER fault, so she doesn't believe she ever owes anyone an apology for anything. She seems to always envision herself as the VICTIM, not the villain, so don't hold your breath waiting to see or hear about Kate Gosselin making an apology to anyone. Ever.

capslock said...

I went to the NBC Today Show spot as well. Can pull up a video of Kate but see nowhere to leave a comment or read anyone else's comments. Help?

Kitty The Dog's Blog said...

Thank you Maggie for encouraging the write-in campaign. I wasn't able to post after the video but on the FB page I posted this:

FIRST, she says the "expulsion" was a "private matter" but now she's all over television talking about it and claims they weren't expelled. I guess she needed time to get her lies straight. She talks publicly about her kids' most private issues and then blames their anger on their dad. Meredith has lost all journalistic integrity and credibility. I will never watch the Today Show again.

So far, 5 people have "liked" it so I think a lot of other people are upset (based on ALL the comments) that she was on and the Today Show will be losing at least 6 viewers.

I also posted on her new "blog" - If you are so concerned with showing your daughters "wholesome" why do walk around dressed like a $2 whore with "your" breasts hanging out of your low-cut top for your male "bodyguard" to see?

She is so full of lies and contradictions. As many have said here, she will be her own undoing.

jonandkatewho? said...

Somebody please explain to me how to comment on the Today website about Kate's interview? I would love to leave a scathing comment about this shrew and her many lies, but when I click to watch her video it just fills the page up with her video and a few other vid selections, you can't really scroll anywhere and there is no place I can find for comments.

I'm just dying to comment on this one, especially if you don't have to sign up. I am so tired of seeing people mollycoddle this bitch and lob softballs at her when they should be throwing spears.

Ridiculous shrew! She looks older everytime I see her, too. She looks much older than she is.

Too bad wisdom will probably never come with age for this idiot. I cannot believe that people actually buy the story of how the kids are doing so "wonderfully" with this show. This is not a wonderful show, sorry to say. It's not only deadly boring, it's embarrassing for her kids, and it's sad.

I would love to say all this on the site. I wish people would just stop interviewing this famewhore.

And OMG, will her horrid show never go away?

No Comment! said...

Everyone please go to the Today website and post a comment. Just click on Kate's interview and at the bottom is where you can post. You do NOT have to sign up. It is very simple. I wrote a negative comment and they immediately posted it on their website.

Please, the Today Show needs to hear from us. Please take a minute and do this. Thank you.

********************
Why? That's what they want! She brings in viewers, and the more people who comment that they saw the show, the more they like it. It doesn't matter if she is hated or liked. THEY DON'T CARE! People watched. People commented on it. She's polarizing. They know that it was viewed, and therefore, they will keep putting her on their show over and over again.

Payson48 said...

Just My Few Canadian Cents said...

Write-in campaigns: I think they do more harm than good with Kate G. It just confirms that people read articles about her, regardless if they like her or not. The more comments stories receive about her - good or bad - the more stories will be written about her. Indifference, not widespread disdain, is what will kill "her career."

Expulsion rumours: her attemmpts to deny them served only to confirm them in my opinion. Someone in the field would no better, but I suspect the expulsions made/make the sponsors nervous. She didn't do the "academically excelling school" (how many primary schools aren't??) any favours by publically stating they didn't know how to help the kids.

And this line from her interview: (about the kids)
"They were having anger issues, they were acting out, they were having behavior things." - I'm assuming Meredith's questions were pre-vetted by Gosselins PR people, thus giving Kate the opportunity to present polished, rehearsed answers. But, "behaviour things?" Perhaps, if Kate spent less time in tanning and nail salons and more time reading, she'd have a much better grasp of the English language, let alone her children.

WallyWinnie said...

Leaving comments on The Today Show website just proves that people are watching. If we stop watching and leaving comments then they will be able to move on from Kate and it will end her!

Also; regarding Kates "show" (Kate Plus 8) and her defending the filming of said show....I just heard Michelle Duggar say that people come up to her all the time and say how they WATCH HER SHOW all the time...and I thought it was cute how Michelle explained that it wasn't a show really and that this was just their lives.

Kates show is a show because it is not reality like the Duggars is. Just a noteworthy observation.

Merrilee said...
Tony didn't know how to teach Kate to dance. It was his fault she danced like a "frock on a hanger."
Her parents don't know how to help her, so they have no place in the lives of their grand-children.
The school doesn't know how to teach her kids. It is the school's fault her kids are a bit anti-social.
Everybody is at fault except her Royal Hindend.
------

Even God, apparently, doesn't know how to help her and her kids as well. Didn't she say in one of her early shows that "god will provide for us" or "god will take care of us." Well, since she doesn't seem to be the church-going, religion-focused person she used to be, it appears, that God, as well didn't know how to help. Apparently, helping and meeting the needs of this family is a really tall order.

Carol in PA said...

I just made a comment over at the Today spot. It felt good to get it off of my chest. What a fame whore. And talk about a liar. OMG

oh so jellus said...

"They've been the ones to verbalize the most that they miss Daddy. I could see that they're the ones struggling the most."

I doubt they've said any such thing.

Sounds to me like she may be setting the stage for sending her two little "troublemakers" off to live with Daddy... at least during times when they aren't filming. I can't see her having much use for kids who won't get with the program, but how selfless and loving would it appear if she "let" those two live with their dad "because they missed him so much?"

JenTru said...

Today marked the first time ever that i have actually yelled out loud at my tv. I usually have the Today show on for background noise in the morning and all of a sudden I heard that shrewish, witchy, lying voice. Did you catch how many times she said "normal" or "not abnormal" when referring to the kids? Keep telling yourself that Kate. Or I guess she already does since she is a pathological liar. I really wish she would star on a show called Who Wants to be Sucked Into A Black Hole? And that she would win the grand prize.

When you think back to the first time we saw Kate, a harried Mom in sweats and t-shirts, it really is astounding that this is the same woman. Never in a million years would I have recognized her as she is now.
In England many years ago, we used to call ladies who *trolled* (taking your word) the streets, dressed in revealing and short clothes, platform shoes...."Ladies of the Night" See how genteel I am!! :) Their signature was a gold chain around their left ankle. Guess the tattoo will do fine!!

......................
She looked younger, fresher and more natural in those days, that's for sure. All I see in the photo they keep flashing on the web of her Today show appearance, is a old-looking, hard-looking woman. The hair doesn't flatter, but it's about so much more than hair. The eyes (window to the soul) don't need a voice. The different face tells its own story.

Maggie said...

I was checking emails and had HLN on, and they brutally attacked Kate's Today show appearance. I noted that they called her out on pretty much everything she said, an expert called her "in denial" for taking no blame for her children's behavior. It went on and on and these women had no patience for Kate's claims.

Can't See Sheep said...

I find it amazing that k8 can be up, in full makeup & dress at that hour of the morning, bashing, exploiting & lying. Yet, when she was married to Jon & the kids were little he was the one who got the twins off to school & made a coffee for her, she couldn't be bothered to get up until what was it, 8? Really, really shows this snake's priorities. Far more important to bash her ex & exploit her children's current situation than it was to get up with them in the morning. You would have thought at the very least she could have gotten up & made Jon a coffee while he got the kids ready. What a monster.

And this whole "no one knows how to help her", I think it's high time she got off her fanny & helped herself like everyone else in the world, instead of whining about how no one knows how to help her. The shrew needs to close her mouth & actually listen to what she's being told, rather than thinking she knows better than everyone. Before Tony could get through explaining anything she'd be whining over top of him & not listening to a word he was saying. Kind of hard for him to help if she won't hear him & makes it so she can't. k8 sabotages herself, no one to blame but her.

hannah said...

I hope Jon shows the Judge proof of how much she bashes him.

I thought Jon did say he was sorry a year or so back. Come on, she made him keep going on with the show(season4, i think it was. "the show must go on) and made him leave his family

She doesnt care how it affects her kids, all she cares is how it it affects her wallet.

come on. TEAM Jon.

The kids should have the right to be off tv and have their own voice. and be raised by parents not by nannies.

WalktheTalk said...

"Can we all say...Damage Control"
I have no doubt that Kate was put on the Today show by TLC for damage
control. They want to get rid of her like left over turkey. It starts smelling and takes up too much room in the fridge. TLC doesn't want to take any blame for the childrens behavior and sending it back to Kate...who of course sent it to Jon! LOL

Kartie Dearest said...

I know everyone on here is voicing their anger and irritation at Kart. Trust me, she annoys the heck of out of me, but this woman is clearly having a meltdown and spiraling. It is just a matter of time that she is going to be committed.

I'm not so much angry at her lies and denial-- just really worried about the kid's safety and emotional well being.

Life is NOT wonderful(ly) for Kart. She KNOWS this...We KNOW this...

1) dismal tv ratings = possible cancellation = no finanical security, tans, free trips, mani/pedi.

2) troubled kids - not just C & A but Leah and Mady. Look at the contained stress on Leah's face in pictures. She's going to explode soon. At least Mady let's it out.

3) Public and messy divorce w/ ex who has moved on with a girlfriend

4) No contact with family/friends

5) Unhealthy/weird relationship with Steve.

6) Face shows smoke lines and she's hitting the bottle a lot.

7) rumor that house is for sale

How can one say life is great and the future bright?

The Today show interview was a desperate scramble to repair a PR mess that is beyond repair and ALSO to take advantage of another free trip, 5 star hotel stay in New York - her favorite city-- WITHOUT the kids and with Steve.

She is a sick and unhappy woman who needs intensive therapy & meds, before it's too late. Save the kids!

Vanessa said...

You know, she's beginning to resemble Dina Lohan more and more each day. Denial, refusal to believe that their PARENTING has played a huge role in their children's problems, bashing their father, talking and TALKING about their childrens' personal issues to the media, and the high-maintenance/hooker look.

Radaronline reporting that Kate left kids with 19-yr.-old babysitter when she went to Cabo with Steve

John & Kate's Furious Fight Over Babysitter Left Alone With Kids

Jon and Kate Gosselin’s fragile peace has exploded and RadarOnline.com has learned the trigger was a blow-up between the pair after Kate trekked to Mexico – and left the kids alone with a teenage babysitter!

(snip)

“Jon was furious that she allowed somebody he didn’t even know look after their kids,” revealed one insider.

“To make matters worse the children were not allowed to see their father during the trips and the sitter was instructed not to talk with Jon either.

According to my TV guide HLN Showbiz tonight, will rerun in 2 hours (10 a.m. CST). It is well worth watching. At about the halfway mark they talk about Kate and pretty much say she is in denial, the kids need off TV and have problems.

No Pain No Gain said...

In other words the school did not know how to help them. Her mantra. Meredith is truly not a journalist that is why she gets the interview. She doesn't do her homework and has talk show roots that she cannot seem to shake.

Merrilee said...

Kate says the school would never use the word "expel" in People.

She doesn't realize they WERE expelled, just phrased in a politically correct way!

And of course we already knew the school didn't know how to help them any more.

Apparently nobody in the whole family can ever find anybody who knows the right way to help them.

****
Oh the Duggar show is fake just like Kate's. They don't normally have all those paid for trips and activities. That is all created for the show's purposes. They would not have all that fancy furniture because it was a commercial within the show when they got the house makeover. That show is not their lives. It's a tv show. Period. And why would people stop watching the Today show because she is on? It's not like she is a correspondent. I'm sure many had the tv on to watch their regular show and did not even know she was going to darken their living rooms. It's quite different from saying don't watch her reality show. I will still watch Today, but the only way they will know the disgust people have for bringing her on is to tell them.

SafetyTrain said...

I would rather see the Today Show give the time they gave to Kate Gosselin to mothers who have children who don't have health insurance and need medical treatment, or mothers whose children have been kidnapped. Those things would be useful to society and may actually help children.

At this point in this whole family drama, any halfway decent mother would put the brakes on this whole media circus and get her kids out of the public eye immediately. The country is gossiping about her kindergarteners being kicked out of school because of severe behavioral problems. She shouldn't be on national tv trying to reword it so it will sound nicer, she should be circling the wagons and shutting this whole operation down and giving her kids their privacy.

To the sheeple who think we're just jealous of her - you need your heads examined. Sometimes I don't think we're watching the same woman. There must be some other Kate Gosselin out there in some show in an alternate dimension that you're watching. You can't really be THAT blind, can you?

Vanessa said...

It reminds me of a story I heard, or read, about a school that was trying to implement a policy that they would no longer mark homework/tests/assignments. They claimed it affected the students self-esteem seeing the "red" mark.
Kind of like not using the word "expel". This world of politcal correctness is a disservice to our kids. Just look at THIS parent. If you re-word and re-define, the problem doesn't exist anymore.

Why didn't the Judge remind Kate on the 30th, NOT to publicly discuss her children's personal lives-- especially regarding custody matters? The Today show aired the very next morning, and there she was, spewing more 'Um, honestly' lies.

Their biggest problem is that their hero just keeps showing her true colors, thus making it harder and harder for them to find ways to defend her.

It can't be easy to be a proponent of child labor, so the creeple try to claim Kate "works as hard as she can" to support her family. I always point out that it's not Kate working hard, but the 8 children. I mention we haven't seen a single episode of Twist of Kate, so it appears that without the 8 children working on the show, THERE IS NO SHOW, and thus Kate is not the one supporting the family.

For a closer, I mention the fact that Kate gets 85% of the money her children earn, leaving them with a measly 15% to split among the 8 of them, which is probably getting eaten up by private school fees.

I intend to call creeple advocates of forced child labor every time they claim Kate is the "sole bread winner" of that family. Because that's really what they are supporting by claiming it's okay to keep filming those children.

Barb said...

I think Kate was speaking the truth when she said that the kids miss their dad badly. But whose fault is that? Who leaves the kids with a nanny every time she travels rather than with their father?
And by the way, isn't that a direct contradiction of her statement in October, when she said the kids don't want to visit their dad and she waits by the phone for them to call her so they can go home? So what is it, Kate - either the kids don't want to see their dad or they really, really miss him (and I am betting on the latter).

Shoshanna said...

I just sent the following email to the Today Show:

I have always liked Meredith because of the way she cares about and for her husband, with such compassion.

How in the world can she be so enamored of Kate Gosselin, who is the essence of a malignant narcissist, who seeks to
glorify herself in every way, at every turn, to the total detriment of her 8 children? Gosselin is an uncaring, egocentric, autocratic woman who twists and spins the truth constantly. She should be a washing machine, not a mother!

I have lost all respect for Meredith and will not watch this show again. Why did she not ask Kate if she ever apologized to Jon for the disrespectful, disgusting way she treated him? And how about an apology x 8 for those poor kids, who have been forced to work in order for Kate to continue her manicures, pedicures, hair extensions, fake surgical enhancements, first-class plane accommodations, clothing and shoe collections and her bizarre live-in relationship with her "bodyguard"?

Really. Your show is condoning and promoting this woman in her quest for fame and fortune? Shame on you.

Shoshannah said...

I can't wait for the kids to grow up and say, when asked about their mother, "She didn't know how to help us."

She only cared about helping herself.
I hope she's as miserable in her old age as her kids
are in their quickly vanishing childhood.

No Worry, Beef Curry said...

It's so hard to keep up with the revolving door anymore....
I was right. There was another Not-a-Nanny Kassondra (I referred to her as 'Kassi' a few months ago). Well, according to Radar's article, she has also quit her job at the Gosselins'. Apparently, the extended trips Kate had taken to Cabo and L.A. with Purse Boy, were too much for her to take. It seems Kate is impossible to work for, and the "helpers" have been instructed not to speak with Jon.

I also caught The View. The Hens are finally talking Gosselin expulsion, after The Today Show ran yesterday. Here's a brief synopsis...

Barbara- Thinks Kate has six kids. Still clueless on ABC.

Whoopi- Absentee, lucky for Kate.

Joy- Clearly now DETESTS, anything Kate Gosselin. Wants her to write a list of everything SHE has done wrong, and stop blaming everyone but herself.

Elisabeth- Wonders if the behavioral problems are really related to filming, and not the divorce.

Sherri the Sheeple- Says Kate needs money and must do the show (despite exploiting her children and permanently emotionally damaging them in the process... Cash is cash).

Rochelle said...

Today on the View they finally spoke about the gosselins. I thought the timing was interesting, no Whoopi and they waited until after their friend, Meredith Viera, interviewed her first.

Sidney said...

Shoshanna said...
"The decision was mutual." Yeah - they said, "Get your kids out of here," and she said, "Ummmm, o.k."


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

I rarely laugh out loud when I am alone, but this caused quite a chuckle. Well said!

Denise said...

Kartie Dearest, an excellent but frightening summation. When she has to accept that stardom is not to be, Kate will fall apart. And the children will suffer again.

She's come undone said...

Some observations re. the Today interview.

Did anyone count how many times she used the word "normal" when trying to explain the not-an-expulsion. She said over and over again...."which is perfectly normal." Right.

Her explanation regarding the not-an-expulsion made no sense. She never really exaplained anything.

It sounded like she was throwing Jon under the bus with the "depends on the day, or hour" comment. It really sounded like that was where she was going but then she softened it.

I just thought the whole interview was strange and out of left field. I mean how many real stars have incorrect information printed about them every day, and they are not immediately given interviews to "clear the air." I guess Merideth has a lot more pull than I would have thought which totally lowers my opinion of the Today show. The interview was stupid and unnecessary and cleared nothing. It would have made so much more sense if they had used that time to do one of their "an ape who dresses himself" segments instead.

Sidney said...

Brace yourselves. This one is scary!

Talk about "rode hard, put away wet."

Not a fan of Kathie Lee either said...

Want the NBC people to know how angry you are, write them a letter and mail it to them. Put your name and address on it. Let's them know you are serious.

Let them pick up a big bag or two of mail or postcards, like the old days and they listened 'cause they don't want that mail flooding their offices.

Also, The View finally brought up Kate Gosselin and her talking about her kids.

Joy went right after Kate *no love lost there* and surprisingly so did Elizabeth. Barbara said a bit too.Sherri was the only one who didn't say much.

Loved it. Finally, Kate is a bad mother on The View. Shame that Whoopi wasn't there for that one, she was off today. Oh heck!

Finally! said...

Kate's interview discussed in detail and no they didn't like it.

AWESOME!!! Finally reputable news people calling Kate out on her lies and denial!!!!

very sick of her said...

Well, in Sheeple land they still don't believe Jon has a job and it's all his fault and Kate has done nothing wrong. I see BW is starting to see the light. Too bad Woopi wasn't there. Sherrie is an idiot. Elizabeth has a point(though I think it is a little/lot of both). Most of the comments on Kate's today show appearance have been/are negative. They say she is in big time denial and should stop bashing /blaming Jon and get her own facts straight(she has a short memory). And get those kids off TV.

audibleclick said...

I've never watched either of the Gosselin shows but I have seen some clips on YouTube. I was astonished when Kate slapped Jon's face and then attempted to make a joke of it. As I watched more clips I was disgusted at the way she treated everyone in that house. She yelled, screamed, shoved, and ordered everyone around as if she has the title of "she who MUST be obeyed".

I have three adult children and seven grandchildren and I've never had to resort to screaming and yelling. Those poor Gosselin kids are modeling the behavior they see in their custodial parent. I really hope this show tanks soon because I can only imagine how much worse it will get for the kids.

I did notice that there were very few comments supporting Kate on the Today Show website so perhaps more people are realizing what a pathetic, trashy, show Kate+8 is.

How to Make Your Point said...

Can't write a letter or a postcard? Too busy with Holidays? So take out one of those Holiday Cards and write inside of it what you think of KG being on NBC and send it.

See I made it easy, just send it with your name, perhaps your entire family and your address. They won't mention you on air, but they will read it.

Load up those Mail Boxes/Bags with your opinion of what you think of The Today Show stooping so low as having that woman on again to reveal the private lives of her children.

Pegg Cath said...

I know quite a bit about what I am writing here. I have worked in this field:

There is Zero Tolerance in schools: private and public.

Something drastic has happened with these 2 little 6 yr old Gosselin children. Repeated episodes rage/hitting/lack of self discipline are evidence of something only a licensed child therapist/psychiatrist can assist with. I don't want to speculate.

Doubt these 2 children will ever be readmitted to this school again. Their problems, whatever they may be, do not disappear in 2 months.

Very sad and even sadder that their mother is in NY appearing on a national show speaking about their problems.

henpecked said...

I have been reading comments about Kate's interview on other sites and several have mentioned that Jon has a new job. Does anyone know what it is?

cossysmom said...

I did not see the Today show, but have seen Kate elsewhere spinning her lies about the kids being expelled. A real celebrity (one who makes her living based on her own talents, rather than by parading her children in TV) would be able to say, "my children are having a difficult time right now and I prefer to keep their lives private." Kate, on the other hand, lives off her children's blood, sweat, and tears. Unfortunately, unless she is willing to pull the plug on the show, she must address these issues in public. How do you think these two children feel? What about the other children who's problems and quirks have been dragged out for all to see. This woman becomes more and more vile as time goes on. why can't she see it's time to end the show?

Rose said...

I haven't watched this interview, and I'm not going to. Just reading the comments on this thread have my blood boiling, because it is classic, CLASSIC Kate Gosselin. She is absolutely incredible, and I don't mean that in good way. Does she honestly think she can continuously blame the children's issues on the divorce alone? Collin and Alexis cannot possibly be doing "wonderfully" if they've been removed from school due to "anger issues". You can't have it both ways, Kate. And guess what? Millions of young children have divorced parents in today's world, yet their parents find a way to keep them in school, discipline them at home, and offer the necessary support to teachers to ensure that the kids continue to do well.

It is simply impossible that the show is "100 percent beneficial" to the kids. There isn't a single thing in this world that doesn't have its advantages as well as disadvantages. You name it, there's a downside to it. It speaks volumes about Kate when she refuses to admit even ONE negative in a situation that is arguably one of the most damaging for any kid out there.

Nobody is being fooled here. Keeping her children in the public eye creates problems including (but not limited to) privacy invasion, rebellion, fear, depression, and self-doubt. Everybody knows this. The problem is that when Kate makes an appearance and is interviewed, there's a list of pre-approved questions, and the interviewer is not allowed to deviate. Nobody is permitted to challenge the obvious holes in Kate's lies--they can only ask questions like "How do you manage to raise 8 kids and still look so good?" and "How are you coping?" and "Oh, dear, sweet Kate, how do you keep going when you have such a horrible animal of an ex-husband?" I don't know what Meredith's deal is, and maybe she truly does side with Kate, but even if she does have a desire to call Kate out on anything, she is restricted from doing so. I'm not defending Meredith, but this is the reality of what people in her position must do, and what people like Kate are able to get away with as a result.

I can't comprehend what those eight children's futures will look like, but I will never stop wishing the best for them. If somebody--ANYBODY--can stop this madness, I hope somehow that it happens. In addition, I hope that someday, Kate will be held accountable to what she has done to them. Sometimes I wonder.

did she do it? said...

Interestingly, Kate didn't bother to deny the astounding rumor that she repacks week-old sandwiches for the kids' lunches. Hmmmm. Don't know about you, but for purely selfish reasons, I'd want that rumor squelched right away.

She Did It said...

As long as those 1/2 sandwiches are not eaten, is the same amount of time they are staying put in the kids' lunchboxes. Guaranteed.

3+ day old Parmesean something or other for dinner? My case in point. Katie Gosselin is a stale food re-packer. The Prosecution has rested.

Tami said...

If the nanny leaving was when all the stories started coming out about repacked food, trouble in school, etc, I wonder if the nanny reported on the old food. She definitely would have known all about it since it's not something you could keep secret in a household where the nanny has such a big role. The fact that the nanny left around that time makes the story believable because it makes one realize the "unknown source" could very well have been her.

Very Concerned and Have No more Patience said...

I just wonder if the 19yr old Nanny who quit, but was "spun around" that Kate fired her for having a criminal record has quite a lot to say to her friends, her family during that time that Kate was gone for 5 to 7 days, she went from LAX(Emmy) to NY(Regis) to Cabo(with Steve) so she did not go back to PA to see how her children were, she only called?

Yet, she was frustrated this Nanny was and frightened, alone in that big house, knowing the children were having trouble in school, trying to follow Kate's order, talking to her parents and her friends about what to do.

Taking the kids to the bus by herself, being followed by freaks and paps or whatever. Picking the kids up.

What is the world goes through a mother's mind when she leaves small children with a stranger for 7 days? That nothing is going to happen, no emergencies? So self assured that "she has everything under control" . I think that is a very dangerous way to raise your children and it is neglect, oh yes it is.

No wonder those children go to school angry, frustrated, no Mom no Dad and another strange Nanny.

Who slept at night? Who stayed awake with nightmares? How did a Nanny handle this?

The State of Pa is now ready to go into that house and find out what is going on and I am writing a letter informing them of what I have known and read.

I am going to insure that those children do not get harmed due to her negligence. I believe there is negligence. I may not have any power, but I am writing the letter. Let them investigate her and the Nanny, because Jon also knows she is one step from having those kids taken away.

TinBox said...

Oh but being on TV is great for the kids! Filming is so healthy and it is the only stable thing in their lives... they look forward to it!

Yeah right, Kate looks forward to the money and the fame. That's it.

acertaingirl said...

If the teenaged nanny was under 18, she couldn't be held to a confidentiality agreement.

The wheels are quickly coming off the Big Blue Bus.

Can't See Sheep said...

I think it's pretty simple to k8, it all boils down to attention, money & ratings in the very end. Doesn't matter what it is, if she thinks it will bring attention, then it will bring ratings, ratings equals money & that's a good thing in her head so she greenlight's it. Doesn't matter if it's incredibly private & sensitive information about the children, if it ends in cash & on air time for her that's all she's concerned about.

Not so long ago someone pointed out the episode where some of the children were being potty trained in the driveway. I'd forgotten about that until then, it tells you that absolutely nothing these children do will be allowed to be private so long as k8 has access to a camera. This woman is going to traumatize the kids every chance she gets so long as she sees some form of gain in it for her. As long as people are looking she will keep doing these things, she will continue to air her children's private matters.

If people really want the cameras out then the best thing that can be done is to show the shrew indifference. Please, please stop feeding the shrew. Funny it makes me think of the fairytales where the witch devoured the children. No, she's not devouring them physicaly, but she is doing a fine job at "devouring"/ traumatizing them & setting them up for a lifetime of therapy.

Even if the camera is no longer on the kids, I fully believe she will continue to discuss their private issues in public, because honestly what is there for her to tallk about, how she went to Target for the zillionth time? I seriousl y doubt she can do small talk or any sort of back & forth banter you see between hosts on a program, she's just not capable of speaking about anything that isn't about her & well, unfortunately she seems to treat the children like they're an extension of herself, rather than actual individuals. They are her accessories.

Kate is the Grinch said...

I really wonder and want to know what goes through Kate's mind after this week of media attention. Is she satisfied with herself, or does she realize that there are TV shows discussing her actions. Negative articles written about her "interviews" and a huge backlash on blog sites about her; 99% of which are negative about the way she conducts herself and handles her children. The only blog that had any positive postings towards her and her show were on TLC'c Kates "fake" take blog and personally, I don't think she writes it, I don't think the stories are true, and I think most the positive comments are TLC employees.

Does she ever think...OK, I've tried to do damage control, now I am just going to go home and focus on my kids and make a nice Christmas Holiday for them. Decorate, shop for presents, bake cookies, play some Christmas carols and stay out of the media for the rest of the year....for their sake. Does she ever think like that???

It is just crazy to me! She has to be made of steel to be able to deflect the negative image she has made for herself. She just keeps on smiling....GRINCH!!

Sugarwater said...

Don't kid yourself. These news/talk shows feel nothing for Kate.

Producer 1: We need something people will talk about.

Producer 2: How about that screwed up Kate Gosselin woman? People will tune in just to watch her make a complete ass out of herself and the messages boards will be jumping.

Producer 1: Perfect. Plus, You know without a doubt that Kate will agree to come on. I think she truly believes we really want to know "her story". HA HA HA HA HA!

Producer 2: Don't you feel a little guilty about setting her up to be massacred by the public?

Producer 1: We're running a business here, not a support group. If she doesn't feel guilty about using her kids, I don't feel guilty about using her.

Producer 2: True. She's a ticking time bomb. If we happen to catch her at just the right time and she makes a big enough idiot out of herself, the network might give us a bonus. I might be able to finally make a down payment on a nice little sports car I've had my eye on. Book her!

silimom said...

I guess my question for Today is this: With everything going on in the world today, you had nothing better to fill a 10-15 minuted interview slot with than Kate Gosselin complaining yet again and not really saying all that much? That's the best you have to offer me?

How disappointing.

So sad. Holidays here again and they have NO FAMILY to visit them or to go visit. No BIG family get togethers, suppers, etc.

The younger ones don't even know there extended family. No grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles! How very sad that KATE has "done everything for the sake of the children" as she so often puts it.

Maggie said...

Could someone please tell me what Barbara, Joy, and Elizabeth said about Kate on the View? Thank you so much, I appreciate it.

BadDog said...

I saw the interview, and it left an awful taste in my mouth. She's such a lying spin-master (or she tries to be.) Why couldn't she at least have been semi-honest and said something along the lines of, "Some of the children have always been more intense than others, and they're the ones who are having the strongest reaction to the changes in their lives." Instead, she acted like it was a total shock that some of the children weren't following "the line" (isn't that what she said? As in the "party line"?)and tried to act like it's to be expected that children from divorced families would have behavior problems. Maybe if you hadn't carried a red spoon with you everywhere you went to hit them with.... Blegh. She makes me sick.

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

One time, JUST ONE TIME, I'd like to hear an interviewer ask her the following question: We've seen your children being potty-trained in the driveway, we've seen one of your sons having feces removed from his rectum, we've seen them vomiting on a boat and having to wear soiled clothing because you forgot to bring a change of shirts for them. Could you please explain how this filming will be beneficial to the children in the future, and how it contributes to their stability? How are they fine with this when they were (and are) too young to give their approval?

It's never going to happen. Why are journalists so afraid of Kate Gosselin?

It was not the same nanny. The one who had a criminal record was a graduate of Eastern University (near Philly), Ariel Cantara, who was allegedly arrested for shoplifting last year; the nanny who quit when Kate went to Mexico was Kassy.

So it is known that she hires really young nannies and does not check criminal backgrounds. Why was it again that she was so mad about Santoro?

The whole Santoro thing was Kate from the beginning. She hired Santoro herself and thought no one would notice.

faline said...

One thing I have noticed:

Kate ended her marriage, and one of the reasons she gave was "we want different things". So, Jon wanted to stop the show, and she would continue the show, but get rid of Jon. She also knows that to keep "ratings" up she has to create drama
and she does. She could be all nicey nice and not scream or wave her hands
but that would be boring. Some good examples of this are gumgate, cupcake gate, screaming "Jon! help us! when on amusement rides etc.

I think she really wishes she could have a show without the kids,
but she's got nothing, so, the kids have to keep going. Some of the kids are getting older now and having the nerve to speak up openly about not liking having to always be filmed. We certainly know how she feels about people who try to tell her not to film the kids: Goodbye Jon, grandparents, Jodie, Kevin, Beth,
any other relatives and all neighbors. Goodbye, everyone.

I think she will do her best to keep this thing alive. God help anyone who tries to get in her way, either. I'm sure this Alaska thing is what that's all about.

The nanny with the criminal charges is different from, Kassi, the 19 year old who was in charge when Kate when to Cabo.

fidosmommy said...

Did I read somewhere that the Today Show, the long-time leader in morning TV, has been passed up by Good Morning America? If that is true, maybe Kate was a ratings grabber attempt by Today. It may have backfired, but who knows?

Tami said...

The whole Santoro thing was Kate from the beginning. She hired Santoro herself and thought no one would notice
********
My theory has always been that she and her "people" set it up so that Jon would meet her and that she would sort of invite herself to be his nanny. I definitely think she was in on the whole Santoro thing and that it was another set up for Jon to take a fall. I also think Hailey, Kate Majors, Lohan, were pretty much all in on it. I don't see how you can look at it and say it was all just a coincidence, that Kate was just going to be filmed coincidentally in the middle of the night wailing at the gate..

Jon tortured said...

Tami, I agree with you.

Jon was "shell shocked" and that is it in a nut shell, he had/has PTSD from that marriage. He was indeed immature in never going up against her opinons when married, but when he left everything got "spun around the Katie way" and she had absolutely no respect for herself, she played it all out in the Press. Anything Jon did, he did after she filed for divorce, she wanted that divorce, so anyone he went to bed was after the separation/divorce.

He probably hadn't had sex but twice in their whole marriage. Twins and tups.

Now leave Jon alone as he works so hard to get custody of those children back and someday he will as Katie Irene is going down in flames. I guess that the Tanning Machines can get really hot?

Somebody please explain to me how to comment on the Today website about Kate's interview? I would love to leave a scathing comment about this shrew and her many lies, but when I click to watch her video it just fills the page up with her video and a few other vid selections, you can't really scroll anywhere and there is no place I can find for comments.

If you have an account on Facebook, that is your best bet. Go to the Today Show Facebook page. Click on the blue tab that says "Just Others." Then click on the "like" button which will enable you to post comments. You will see hundreds and hundreds of totally negative comments about her anfd the show. People have had it with her and are 100% on to her evil and her scam.

Laurel Lee said...

I have been on Jon's side from day one. She started all of this by locking him out of the bedroom, moving him to the garage, etc. when she got the "big head". He commented early on about her having the affair with the body guard and I totally believed him. Was he immature, you bet. But she set it all in motion. Who goes on national TV and bad mouthes the father of their children every chance they get? I still remember Jon looking at Kate at that birthday party in the park shortly after the split. You could tell he was so in love with her and would have gotten back together with her. This is all going to prove out as fact in the long run.

so sick of her said...

I truely believe and agree that Jon was immature and in love with Kate. I also think Kate is jealous of Jon cause he moved on. His running around was his way of getting back at Kate and she did not like it(I also agree that she had an affair with purse-boy) cause, now, she has no control over him. The only control was through TLC/contract. And if she is tryin to get us to believe that Jon dumped the kids on her, she is dead wrong. She wanted full custody so she can control her little money makers. She cares very little for those kids. I would not be surprised if she says to them when she gets mad at them that they remind her of their good for nothing father. Only time will tell and when the older ones go web-surfing and look themselves and mother up. It will be shocking for them.

Kate kept stressing that acting out is completely normal for kids of families going through a divorce.

I know kids in a family going through a divorce sometimes act out, but how many must leave school temporarily, even by mutual agreement?
___

I am on the school board for a local preschool that ministers mostly to single parents by giving very VERY affordable tuition so that they can afford to send their kids to preschool. Most of the kids live with only one parent or even a grandparent because both parents are unfit.

And you know what? In my three years of involvement and about 260 kids, we have had ONE dismissal. ONE. And his parents weren't even divorced. In this case, the mom has no concept of discipline. She had never even heard of time outs! (We set her up with a counselor to gain some parenting skills and things are improving for their family, which is great news!).

On the flip side, my best friend just got divorced from an abusive husband. Her kids are THRIVING this year without that tension and fear in the home. If parents divorce because the situation is truly, truly too horrible to be fixed, then the kids don't necessarily act out afterward.

So in my opinion the idea that it's because of the divorce is crap. It's because of lousy parenting skills.

She is on the Today show because she still brings in the viewers. Meredith is the interviewer because no one else is interested in what she has to say, maybe?
