Tell Me It Isn't So

On Entertainment Tonight, there is supposedly an announcement that Kate is the Skating With the Stars correspondent.

May this last as long as her DWTS correspondent job.

Miss Pippers said...

Ok wasn't she just whining yesterday about how she's having financial woes and then today this is announced? Like she didn't know this was in the works yesterday?

et.newsdesk@cbsparamount​.com

I am emailing E.T. and telling them how I really feel about this lying, scheming woman who had the wooden plaque on her dining room table in the old house that said "Plan Ahea..." She planned and hoped for this fame and fortune all along. They need to do their research on this pathetic wretch.

Brummygirl said...

As Kate would say..."Oh Good Lord"!!

PatK said...

She really needs to take some time to try and "get her house in order" before continuing with the "me, me, me" gigs.

What a witch.

Hambone said...

Let her. Let her show America what an ass she is. Let her demonstrate her piss poor "corresponding" aka "This is all about Meeeeeeeeeeee!! Screw the skaters!"

She will fall on her face, as usual.

What I find fascinating is ET's obsession with an abusive mother.

Janie said...

It wasn't "supposedly there was an announcement." There was an announcement. I saw it.

Ohio Buckeye said...

K8G is suddenly an expert on ice skating?

Doubtful at best, especially after her embarrassing DWTS debacle.

I'm wondering if she has ever even laced up a pair of ice skates? As I recall, Mady wanted to go skating and had to rely on Jon to take her - K8G, as always couldn't be bothered even trying. She tried to spin that (as always) from uninterested and lazy to heroic by claiming she couldn't risk injury because she was too needed by her beloved children.

Ok, so we will soon be able to add one more to the list of things Kate Can't: author a thought provoking book, cook, dance, talk show host, and, MOST notably: PARENT WELL.

Kate on Skates - this should be a ne low even for ET.

Teryn said...

Nice. Kate has eight kids with emotional issues, and she ups and leaves them AGAIN for the nannies to deal with so she can go be a stah!!!!!!

I hate her.


Miss Pippers, the email addy you listed for ET wouldn't work for me :(

ChurchMouse said...

Okay, Ms. Gosselin, let's go over the basics of interviewing:

Hold the microphone in front of the person you are interviewing.

Stop talking about yourself.

Ask a question. Wait for an answer.

There, that's not so hard, is it?

She'll still mess it up...

Brummygirl said...

She will definitely have to have cheat cards.
If there is anything I know about, it is ice skating. My daughter was one for fourteen years and I am an avid follower.
So, Kate bring it on, you haven't a clue girl!!

Will she EVER go away?! said...

WTF WHY do they keep giving her appearances on other TV shows? Do the producers of these other shows not realise that NO-ONE LIKES HER, and WILL NOT WATCH a show with her on it.

FFS She can't even do couch interviews on Kate Plus 8 without constantly um-ing, lying about things her kids say and do, mocking them, fake laughing, fake crying.

What people want is for her to GO AWAY, NOT appear on every reality show under the sun.

Katie Dearest said...

wth - does this woman have no common sense or shame?

What kind of mother leaves for hollywood when trouble is brewing at the homefront.

The tv show is a six week series.

She needs a mental evaluation, STAT.

StoryLady said...

I'm wondering how, or if, this will effect the court date on the 30th.
Will it have to be postponed, because Kate is 'working'?

I can hear her now: "I love skaterish things, and Zamboni is my most favoritest ice cream flavor EVER! SQEEEEEEEEEEEEL"

Hard to Keep Loving Jon said...

KHATE: Zamboni? Oh, right... the magician! I loved watching him as a child ... lololol

spen6cer said...

I think Skhate is skating on thin ice!! With all her current problems with the kids and her obvious announcer-person-type problems of the past, I predict she'll fall flat on her plastic surgerized boobs (cuz they'll hit the floor before her face). Also saw a headline on INF that one of the dogs has returned home. At least if she mistreats or abuses it the ASPCA or PETA will probably react to help the dog faster than ANY agent has to help the kids.

A4Eliz said...

I think any time K8 is away from the kids there lives are more peaceful. They are better off with nannies who are at least kind and rational then with their crazy narcissicistic Mom. They probably see Jon more too.

dustilies said...

Wait, wait--isn't Zamboni K8"s favorite winebox brand?

Brummy, kudos to you for supporting your daughter in ice-skating for fourteen years!

Brummygirl said...

Interviewing:
Skater #1: I messed it up Kate, I fell on my double loop.
Kate: Ummmm...wow, they shouldn't leave rope on the ice.

Skater #2: Did you see my axle kate?
Kate: I haven't been in the car park, I've been stuck in here all night-ish.

Skater #3. Do you know anything about lifts Kate?
Kate: Well, I had one recently, can't you tell?!!

Kate: (checking cheat cards) I hear that skaters used to do figure eights....just like my kids...I have eight of them you know..count 'em...eight...!!

Skater #4. Errr...yes Kate. Now we have two programs, the short and the free?
Kate: Free???? I am so on to that....(screeching laugh which resounds around the arena and cracks centre ice)!!

pinkdiamond611 said...

Gawd. Go Away. Evidently she must have had some sort of contract with ET. Isn't Donny Osmond available?

EnoughAlready:O said...

I dont know ...has this show been on regularly ? I seem to recall it being on a while ago and seeing Bruce Jenner on it , but I thought it tanked . If so why bring the show back ? Also not understanding why they would want Kate for it, wasnt she not even invited to the final DWTS?

Chris said...

Well if she is busy working at least the expelled kids will not be homeschooled by Kate and hopefully get a qualifed tutor.

Leavin on a jet plane said...

Oops, posted this on the wrong thread:

What a great idea! This bozo can take off to LA and ditch every one of those troubled children - again.

Oh, wait a minute, maybe that IS a good idea. Absentee mom may = stress relief, at least for as along as she's gone.

What a great lead-in to a custody hearing. Nothing says "Dad can't have them, but I don't want them" like working 3,000 miles away.

Kitty The Dog's Blog said...

Brummy - that was too funny!

I can't believe she is leaving again when things are so bad at home. Wait, yes I can.

Sport said...

The woman has no intelligence to be riffing about skating on live TV. Perfect.

It shouldn't take much more than 5 minutes to expose her 3rd grade education and vocabulary. The gum smacking should be a joy.

At least bored people can play drinking games, and take a sip every time she says "Umm" or smacks her gum.

What a filthy pig - with her family in turmoil and obviously needing some actual parenting to be done the arrogant narcissist decides to go play Hollywood Celebrity in Cali?

GO AWAY KHATE.

ChurchMouse said...

Wondering if this ET gig is to actually promote her, "Twist of Kate" show.

Can't See Sheep said...

Well at least the frosty shrew will be somewhere that's almost as cold as she is.

I haven't seen this show, will she have to be on ice skates or do they interview from the sidelines? How is kate going to interview about ice skating she doesn't know diddley about anything, muchless ice skating. She doesn't even know what sandwiches each of her kids like for goodness sakes, this is ridiculous. And what the heck is she doing doing this when her kids are having such severe problems. How can she leave at a time like this?! Oh I know she has to work to feed them (eyeroll). Does this mean more time with nannies instead of a parent at such a crutial time for the children? What am I saying, the kids are probably better off without kate there.

Brummygirl, I don't know, nevermind the cheat cards, I think kate will need an entire cheat billboard with flood lights & everythng & she'll still mess it up. I can see it now, huge red X's painted all over so she doesn't miss her mark & end up on the cherry picker again. Your second post had me in stitches.

Hard to Keep Loving Jon LMAO!!! I bet if kate puts on skates & goes out on the ice she'll be as graceful as a Zamboni. There you go, evolution from shopping kart to Zamboni.

dustilies, LOL!!! You never know kate could walk into one of her fancy eateries & ask for a plate of Zamboni & marinara sauce.

Tami said...

So what is she going to do? Phone in her testimony for her custody trial? No wonder she spent 3 hours making copies--she probably wants to control everything her lawyer says even if she will not bother being there. Now she can say, "Oh, I have a JOB. That is why I am gone. Someone has to make a living". And the sheeple will say, "Oh Kate has this CAREER". How long until people stop feeding the beast and let it shrivel up and die already??

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

I don't get it. ET asked people on Facebook if they wanted to see Kate be the DWTS correspondent and most everyone said hell no. Even after ET made comments like "don't you think she was so brave to put herself out there knowing she wasn't very good...blah blah..." . It was still met with a resounding NO. When ET listened to their audience, I had respect for them. So how the hell do they justify putting this worthless piece of driftwood on TV now? Did they not ask their viewers what they thought of her being the oorrespondent for this new piece of crap? When I saw the ads for it, the first thing I thought was, OMG. All the Hollywood losers trying to skate. How pathetic. I guess Bill Geddes still wants to get in to Kate's undies. Watch out Steve. Competition.

Fungus! said...

I've had long-term warts that have gone away quicker than Khate Gosselin. I am going to start praying about this because it has gone on long enough! Gag

C said...

Hey, the kids get a break from the shrieking shrew, AND mom isn't earning money by exploiting her children--double win!

Of course, I agree with others here, in that I expect her to be a terrible job. Even if she manages to study hard and learn skating vocabulary--a big if, as Kate isn't very learn-ish or work-ish--I think she'll bomb. An interviewer needs to at least pretend to care about what other people are saying, and I think Kate is too self-centered to do so.

Brummygirl said...

I do hope Kate has to interview the judges, because Johnny Weir is one of them and he does not like Kate!!!
If it goes like D.W.T.S., you will not see Kate on the actual show, it will be on E.T. after show.
I will be watching the show because I love skating and Rebecca Budig is one of the contestants.
Why is it K8 harridon turns up to spoil my favourite shows. D.W.T.S. has been so much fun this year without Stone Feet Kate.

Kate, go away said...

So what gives with the ET gig? Katan has been in the news lately for: 2 of her kids being expelled, the other 6 on probation, repacking moldy sandwiches for their lunch, telling her kids they won't to to heaven, sagging ratings, and for going through 12 nannies due to her controlling bitchy ways. Nothing good. In addition, she doesn't know squat about ice skating and is detested by one of the professional skaters on the show. And lastly, she has no interviewing skills, and behaves like a giddy, dimwitted teenage Valley Girl as she shrieks, interrupts, and says "Oooh, mahGod" over and over. Why would ET want this woman as a correspondent? It doesn't make sense. Maybe as a consolation prize for losing the dwts gig? Charity? It surely couldn't be to boost ratings. This bitch has nine lives.

Also, I never watch ET. Is this gig a big deal at all or is it small potatoes, as I suspect?

gigi said...

Nobody watches that ice skating show and no one cares Kate is involved.

bbeau said...

ET must be crazy, or very slow learners. They haven't figured out that most people do not like her and after thr DWTS debacle, the celebrities don't like her much either. Why have an unlikeable person represent your show? There are so many other Dlister celebrities that are likeable that they could have picked for the correspondant. On top of it all, she knows NOTHING sbout skating!!!!

I am so glad here in Canada we have Battle of the Blades, a popular show pairing professional figure skaters with ex hockey players. Gosselin better not come over the border and ruin that!!!

readerlady said...

I doubt that this gig with ET will interfere with the custody hearing. The show doesn't start until January and the format is supposed to be like DWTS, so it'll air live - few or no pre-taped interviews. I love all things ice skating, so I remember the first incarnation of this show a couple of years ago. The announcer and side-line interviewer was a totally unqualified chap named Scott Hamilton. He only had a World Championship, an Olympic Gold Medal, a couple of professional championships, so he was completely unqualified, unlike Khate who - well. . . OTH, IF, and that's a big IF, the kids are allowed to be with Jon while she's away, this could be a very good thing for them. Consistancy, less stress, a loving parent, access to extended family. Of course, if Jon prevails at the hearing on the 30th, then we won't have to worry.

@A4Eliz - How do we know the nannies are kind and rational? After all, they've been chosen by and trained by Khate.

I wouldn't put much stock in the reports that one of the dogs has returned. As someone pointed out, that picture of the kids pushing their little car, with the dog watching on, is an old one. I think I remember when it was taken - back before the dogs were banished and Jon was still allowed on the property. He was with the kids the w/e it was taken. I haven't been able to find the other pics online yet. I think they appeared on ROL. I'm not the best at techie things, so I may not be able to find the link. Maybe someone else with more knowledge can locate them?

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

That other show was Skating with Celebrities, which lasted one season on Fox a few years ago: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skating_with_Celebrities

As for why ET tapped Kate for SWTS duty, maybe ET wasn't that interested in covering SWTS, so they outsourced it to Kate as a consolation prize for not giving her the DWTS correspondent gig.

If SWTS is anything like Skating with Celebrities, it'll take six weeks to crown a champion. Long enough to feed Kate's delusions of awesomeness, but short enough to fade from the public consciousness relatively quickly.

Exhausted said...

Why do her people keep flexing their muscles and exploiting all their connections to hook Kate up with these destined-for-failure gigs? You would think after the show with Paula Deen and the promotion jobs they tried to line her up with, they would learn their lesson. Why would you want to ruin your credibility by doing this...unless you knew that would be the final nail in the coffin and you could sabotage her for once and for all. Is this job the last inch of rope they're giving her to hang herself? "Yes, give her lots of camera time. Lots of responsibility. Make her come up with her own questions and don't provide her with any suggestions." I wonder. But would someone really want to let their show become a train wreck?

Enjoy the time off from Mommy, kids. My siblings and I used to be so devastated if my mom would have to go even to a meeting at night. Show me children who don't miss their mother when she's away, and I'll show you an abnormal situation.

Vanessa said...

My goodness, she left most of them with full-blown flu(flues?) to get Jonny-boy hair plugs. She left Collin impacted and suffering for beds. She left all of them to gallavant around the country signing "her" book and only wanted to hear from them if there was an accident or something serious going on. The list goes on and on... Why WOULDN'T she leave them to do this gig? To HER, there is (nor will there ever be) absolutely NO reason for her to make a choice to stay home or pursue her dream of being a Supa-Stah. To all of us, the choice is clear, that is what is so dumbfounding about her. Never have I witnessed such a person.

Yolanda said...

Something is bizarre about this whole thing. ET must have a contract with her they are obligated to honor.

Or else they feel her appearance will translate to higher ratings for the show.

Just to clarify - she's not actually going to be on the show (in any role), just a correspondent for ET - right?

So you can watch the show and not contribute to Kate's ratings??

Aunt Chris said...

Fungus -

LOL!!!!

ChurchMouse said...

It will just the same as her "special correspondent" on DWTS.

http://tinyurl.com/274wv6b

Notice how she basically interviews herself, how hard she worked, how nervous she was, and blah, blah, blah.

Watch this, and you won't need to tune into the skating show, because you know it'll just be more of the same.

Ohio Buckeye said...

K8G commenting on ice skating is going to make a great drinking game.

Just watch for each time K8G takes attention off the skater and the skater's performance to discuss herself: ("I know you must have been nervous prior to your skating performance....I was so scared to do DWTS, but I love a challenge, and so I did it!" "I know you feel you deserved a higher score from the judges - I, too, was treated unfairly by the DWTS judges." "I tried skating, but my skating instructor didn't know how to help me learn. I could've been GREAT, but my instructor lacked the skills to properly prepare me."

Oh, and "I HEART U, kids!"

Each time we witness a classic K8G attention hogging, we lift our glasses and salute all that is narcissistic.

Bottoms up!

(Except that I won't be watching, so I'll have to read about this sure-to-be-another-new-low for tv and K8G.)

PA G-ma said...

Get ready folks..
Tom Bergeran did mention "Skating With The Stars" to be following DWTS. K8 will definitely do a cameo appearance on one of the last shows of DWTS. That is what always done to promote a new show that is going to be on ABC.

bonehead said...

Is Kate on the show it self doing, interviewing or is she doing the backstage interviewing, for ET?

A4Eliz said...

---------

Does anyone know why Jon can not stay with G8 at the McMansion, when Kate is away? In lieu of the nannies? There was a video of him dropping the kids off at gate after visitation. But if the house belongs to the kids, as both J & K have stated, why can Jon not watch them in their own home while Kate is away??

so sick of her said...

No worries people. You would have to tune into ET to see Kate. I just was at the ABC TV website and the Hosts of the SWTS are Vernon Kay & Tanith Belbin, host & commentator. I don't watch ET much any more, so who cares. That means Kate will be flying to LA once a week for 6 weeks.

Button Button said...

Aren't these shows already taped?

I think DWTS was finished before we ever saw it.

I know Apprentice was taped before we ever saw it. They know the winners long before we do.

So, maybe this has been taped already, but maybe I am wrong.

Does somebody know?

Maybe this was taped before the kids were expelelld.

Nevertheless, DWTS has left many with a nasty taste in their mouths.

It turned out to be a popularity contest, not at all a talent-skill contest.

Perhaps the skating show will lose a lot of their audience because of Kate and because of the way DWTS was judged.

JoyinVirginia said...

I read that Johnny Weir will be one of the judges for SWTS. He is from Pa and I remember he said on .. Regis & Kelly maybe? - when he was asked about J&K during the divorce stuff, he said "I am on Team Kids." A cousin of his apparently lived in same neighborhood with J&K when the tups were born and he knew the real story. Ms. Kreider was not popular in her prior neighborhood.

It will be interesting if Ms. Krider has to interview Johnny.

Merrilee said...

Being a reporter on ET is totally different from reporting "on the ice."

I think her part will be much smaller than it might seem.

And hasn't it already taken place?

There was a spell of time when everybody was wondering where she was and what was going on, as she was AWOL for a while. Maybe that was where she was.

fidosmommy said...

I think DWTS was finished before we ever saw it.

******

If that is true, then DWTS is guilty of conning the public by making them think their votes on Monday nights mean a thing. I believe the show is live.

Pattypanda said...

Skating starts 11/22. Too bad, I love skating but any show, ET etc. w/ Kate on it looses me. Glad for the kids though, anytime she is gone, there is probably much peace in that house - I can't call it a home. Home is someone nice, loving and cozy. Not run by a cold dictator.

baglady said...

I'm no fan of Kate, but I hope she is very successful and makes a ton of money. As long as her kids don't have to work and can keep some semblance of privacy, then more power to her. Maybe once she is able to shed her "mom brand" she'll feel free to hire real, professional nannies and experienced tutors or even send the kids to boarding school.

Pattypanda said...

Kate has already crossed paths with Johnny Weir and he's not a fan for sure.
The 25-year-old Olympic figure skater revealed to E! Online that he has family living next to the Pennsylvania house Gosselin previously lived in with ex-husband Jon and their eight children.
"She was a terror," he quipped. "My cousins' house backs up to the house Jon and Kate lived in," he said. "It's a very small and quiet area. Everyone's like, 'What are paparazzi doing in the middle of Amish country?' It was really annoying for everybody."

He also hosted an event: Kate Gosselin was a guest at an ice skating charity event for a 9/11 group held in Danbury, Connecticut Sept 09. E! Online has quotes from three separate people willing to go on the record about how difficult Kate and her bodyguard were to work with. The event founder, the stage manager, and skater Johnny Weir all said that they had issues dealing with Kate and that she was less than easy to work with. Kate did make an appearance free of charge, but she only ended up speaking for a minute or two and her requirements put quite a few people out. One of these issues wasn’t Kate or her bodyguard’s fault - Real Housewives of New York City castmembers Jill Zarin and Luann DeLesseps were also there with cameras, and TLC and Bravo had some territorial issues trying to make sure that Kate didn’t get filmed by the other show.

Probably the most damning part of this story is how Kate turned away a ride from one of the skater’s moms who showed up at her hotel Washington, DC to drive her all the way to Danbury. Kate refused to get in the car with the woman after allegedly knowing about the travel arrangements ahead of time. She insisted on having a stretch limo drive her instead. Now that’s a real diva move. Maybe there’s more to it that we’re not hearing, though.

Drake said...

No, DWTS wasn't "finished before we saw it" -- which is why audience votes can determine its progression. The skating show will be the same.

And yes, as I understand it, Kate is only going to be on ET, not on the skating show -- so you can watch the skating show without fear of seeing Kate.

readerlady said...

PattyPanda, Also, at the same event, Steve prevented Nikki Blonsky - a genuine star - from going into the bathroom before she went on stage, because Khate was in the bathroom. That's real Diva behavior, too. Guess Khate not only thinks she's above using a bucket with a toilet seat, she's above sharing facilities with anyone. I'm not a huge fan of Johnny Weir, who's also been known to engage in some diva-ish behavior, but in this case, I say - Go Johnny, Go! Give her HEdouble Hockeysticks!

PA G-ma said...

Thanks to all who posted that K8 will not be doing the skating show. I don't care that she will be on Entertainment Tonight or any other "Showbiz" type show. I stopped watching them all when they all had the "Poor K8 Pity Parties".

h84kate said...

Ohio Buckeye said "I'm wondering if she has ever even laced up a pair of ice skates? "

In an episode about the family going to Utah for a ski vacation they also did a stint ice skating. Amongst the screaming 3 year olds on the ice, Kate let us know her greatest fear was to get hurt and be out of commission. She did give it a try and clung to Jon as they inched out 10 feet before she demanded to be returned. I guess that's kinda like skating.

I'll see if I can catch her correspondence for youtube for ya.

she blew her chance said...

Baglady, your sentiment is well-meaning, wanting Kate to make loads of money so that the kids don't have to work. But she has proven herself to be a foolish spendthrift with any money she has grifted or earned. In addition, she is unbelievably cheap when it comes to the kids and has not hesitated to make them work even when she had plenty of money to her name. The private school and Orphanage satisfy her need for prestige and showing off. The nannies satisfy her desire not to have to deal with her kids. So I, for one, do not want Kate to make lots of money. It will not benefit the kids the way that it should, only kate's need to show off, act like a movie star, and pamper herself. She should get a job and take care of her own kids like the rest of the world. All she really needs is some help cleaning the house and maybe one nanny in the afternoon. Those kids are not babies anymore. She could handle them if she had the desire and right attitude.

TandLMommy28 said...

I've canceled weekend plans because one of my kids had a bad day on Friday. I can't fathom LEAVING FOR SIX WEEKS if my kids were ever in THAT kind of serious emotional turmoil. She's horrible. I hate her.

Sheri said...

Tami said, "Now she can say, "Oh, I have a JOB. That is why I am gone. Someone has to make a living". And the sheeple will say, "Oh Kate has this CAREER"."

I thought the exact same thing.

How is it a career when the only thing that is getting her these jobs is the residual notoriety from exploiting her children in the first place?

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

I had to laugh when Jennifer Grey turned it all around and interviewed Kart! LOL

Grey looked like she was enjoying putting her on the spot. HA!

She would ask Kart a question and it was funny to watch Kart try to answer on the fly. You could just see her little arrogant brain cells working: "um, what did she just ask me? How do I answer it? What do I actually think, that isn't scripted for me?

I think in this show they have trained her (like a little stupid monkey) to use what she has, in other words, "make the most of the fact that she is hated by all, including judges, and her ineptitude at dancing (read: anything)...

INSTRUCTIONS FROM PR PERSON:

OK Kart, ratings show you are in the crapper, so we have to use what we have. You aren't fooling viewers anymore so we go with the facts.

We will be capitalizing on these facts:

1. You can't dance. Emphasize that for laughs.

2. The judges hated you. Emphasize that for sympathetic chuckles. Be sure to say you got a score of 3.

3. Be sure to mention Willow in a casual aside to Bristol. We need to make it look like you have friends in high places. Mention it as she is walking away so she can't answer back "huh? - you don't know Willow, and besides she hates you"

4. Keep looking over at the camera, making cute faces. It makes it look like you are loved by America. It's all about fooling viewers. If you act like you are liked, maybe they will believe it. (Personally, there's no chance in hell, but my boss told me to tell you that.)

5. Be sure to laugh a lot. But for gawds sake, DON'T CACKLE! That makes static on TV screens as far away as... well, it ruins all the transmissions. Folks are calling the cable companies because they thing there is something wrong with their audio.....

On a serious note, it is evident in that interview that someone had been teaching her. That makes me nauseous.

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

No sheeple here, but I never would have gotten into a car with somebody I didn't know, especially not knowing their driving record/history, what kind of insurance she/he carried, etc. I'll give Kate a pass on that one (and ONLY that one!)...

I can't agree with this, although I can see you meant well. Why should Kate Gosselin have an opportunity like this? She exemplifies all things negative, in every way that counts in life. Please ET....there are thousands of other options out there to choose from. You are losing viewers due to your inane practices of hiring this monster mom & person. She is trash and a nasty human being.

...and wouldn't Kate just love that, shoving them off to boarding school. Jon must surely have some input regarding this.
As for hiring any professional nannies, that would cost too much for Kate and she would not have the control she does over the present ones.

Anonymous said...

BrummyGirl, it sounds like you know something about skating! I've been upset about this Skating with the Stars show, because they haven't announced the professional skaters yet. Do you know who's going to be on the show skating with the celebrity losers?

Johnny Weir hates Kate.

BrummyGirl, it sounds like you know something about skating! I've been upset about this Skating with the Stars show, because they haven't announced the professional skaters yet. Do you know who's going to be on the show skating with the celebrity losers?
******************************
Here you go. Unless you followed skating for a few years you probably will not know these.

RE: Kate refusing the ride to the skating venue.

I would not expect Kate to get into just anybody's car either. But with all the "security" she has at her disposal, it would have been a very easy job to gather up
the basic information on the driver: contact with the skate program's organizers, the volunteer's driver's license, car tag number, some basic personal info, and to have her prove her identity with 2 forms of picture ID before letting Kate get into the car. If the woman was legit, she would not have taken offense at Kate protecting herself from a stranger. What is Steve's job, anyway? He's security, isn't he?
So where was he when Kate needed some security measures taken?

No, Kate just wanted the limo, IMO.

laurie said...

It has n0thing to do with the skating show. It is all ET. Wsatch the skating and skip ET. I READ THAT eet owed kate for not giving her the DWTS gig which they'd signed her for. DWTS didn't want her backstage which is why she was $hit canned.

Monster Mommy said...

Boy, ET needs to do their homework!

Don't they know Kate Gosselin sucks the life out of ANY show she appears on? (Also, way too many "'Ums and You Knows" for a regular correspondence gig.)

Terrible choice. At least the kids will be away from Mommie Dearest while she is away. The less time the children spend with her, being (at the very least)- emotionally abused, the better. Good... Go away and never come back.

Anonymous said...

I suspect this was a done deal for SWTS BEFORE the latest hoopla (suspension/expulsion/probation)occured. I also suspect that her highness (hiney)in her own mind WON'T be gone the entire six weeks - she'll fly back and forth (1st class of course - on ET's dime)and then complain and whine about how "exhausted" she is with all she has to deal with at home together with flying back and forth and filming that show that continues to exploit the children. GAG

No Worry, Beef Curry said...

When the going gets tough.... Kate goes running.

Running away from taking responsibility for her troubled, expelled children. She created this mess, and now someone else has to clean it up. Typical Kate - self first. Where does focusing on her kids' well-being rate on her importance scale?

Jon recently placed it at #1, as their only rational parental figure.

No one cares said...

Kate a horrible choice for special correspondent, as she is screechy, immature, self-centered and immature....sure. But choosing her makes even less sense when you consider that there are plenty of articulate, charming stars available to do the job who live in LA. Why fly out a ridiculous moron to comment on ice skating? Screams consolation prize to me. She is said to have been unwelcome backstage at DWTS (no surprise there). ABC must have offered her this gig to placate her after canning her. Oh and btw, if you google Kate and skating with the stars, nothing comes up, so this gig is definitely a consolation prize...like when they give contestants RiceARoni on the Price is Right.

Be Glad to Have Peace & Quiet on our Roads Again said...

Gosselin's property is up for sale. A big NY auction house is handling the sale.If you want to see land in that area, your financials are checked first. Then you are shown photos and a movie of the house and grounds. The owner is "highly motivated"

I thought this was interesting as we in the area are so tired of her. The store keepers and the employees are told not to talk to her unless she speaks. No one approaches her or try to be friendly. She will not answer a hello from someone she knows are neighbors. So it is best she just take her carnival and move away.

So be it. Several of us had invited her to an afternoon tea when she moved in. Her bodyguard, a woman, told us she was not interested in making friends and those were the words.

She's come undone said...

This makes me furious. I was looking forward to this show and now I can't watch it. I've seen this happen over and over. Just when we think she's going away...........she's baaack. She is not going away. After this it will be something else. Why? I honestly do not know nor do I understand this. It is beyond me.

Annies said...

Guess this is why Jon picked up the kids from school because the witch is filming for the Skating show.

Annies said...

Gee I almost forgot that DWTS new season interviews she did for ET. Once again she made them all about her not the new cast. What an egomaniac.

Miss Pippers said...

I think perhaps some of you are misunderstanding. Kate is NOT going to be on the Skating with the Stars show itself. She will be the SWTS correspondent FOR Entertainment Tonight. She will be on ET...not SWTS :)

lindahoyt said...

I hope it is true. I don't watch that program, and as long as she is busy the kids don't have to be tortured by her.

jasmine said...

So the Gosselins' home is up for sale? Not surprising after the recent developments, but this isn't a good time to sell a home. I wonder what NY firm has the listing and if this is a short sale.

Zamboni: K8"s Full of Baloney! said...

If I was a local storekeeper and was told by tlc/teamkate that we were not to speak to her or my employees not to speak to her unless spoken to by the kate herself, I would say ok.

Then as soon as they left, I would make a sign that said:

Kate Gosselin
is
Banned
from this store
until futher
notice

from Andy Griffith: that should about do it.

I also know that is true.
We are tight in this area. We learned the hard way, by losing jobs not to make Kate uncomfortable, don't talk to her, so no one does and no one talks to magazines who come here. We try to mind our own business but she blows through the place like she isn't staying anyhow. I could tell you stories about my dgtr's friends and what they go thru, but it will come back to them and they need their jobs.Think of all the money I could make selling those storys. People who do work for her get treated badly too, she is a very cold person. Can't you see that.

So Glad to Have Peace, etc. said...

One of the big real estate agencies connected to one of the big auction houses like Christies, I think or one of the others headquartered in NY. You cannot just get a link and get the info. We do know the property is for sale to the right bidder. You could call the NY office, I assume and if you have proper credentials then you would be spoken to, I assume.As for right time to buy or sell, when you have that kind of money, it doesn't matter. We love our community, our farm lands, our horses, etc. She and he should not have tried to move here and not be a part of that but bring baggage, newsreporters, satellite trucks, it gets crazy for us. Over what?

If they wanted privacy why did they televise where they lived? That just doesn't make sense.

Most of all the people who were raised out this way, worked hard for their money, take care of their homes. She made the wonderful people who lived in that house seem like slobs when she went on the cleaning rampage. We knew she was trouble. Those prior owners were clean people who had help with their home and had house cleaners come in to make it a move in type of house. Rugs were shampooed. That refrig was so clean. Oh that Kate woman is crazy. But she can take that traveling carnival on the road to another state, won't hurt our feelings not at all.No more craziness or police cars. Terrible way to live. See money does not breed good manners.

Jane in CA said...

I'm not disputing anyone who says that people in Kate's area don't talk to her, but it just sounds so odd to me. I grew up in an area of northern CA that got visits from a lot of celebrities - buying vacation homes, visiting local wineries, horse breeders, etc. And stories circulated every time one or another visited, from people who worked at local stores, restaurants, or anywhere else they might have stopped briefly.

Are people saying that Kate and/or TLC has soooooo much power in the Lancaster PA area that if an employee of a store talks about how snooty Kate G. is, they make sure that employee gets fired? People have actually lost their jobs after Kate has visited their establishment? Seriously puzzled here.

so sick of her said...

Perhaps, the NY firm(which was probably brought in by TLC) that is selling the property, is selling it cause Kate has not been paying the mortgage and it has been put in foreclosure. Or moving to LA was on Kate's mind right along. Kate must be feeling very confident about what is gonna take place in court on the 30th. Let's hope not. If Jon gets, better visitation and custody rights, Kate would then have to get Jons' permission, to move the kids out of state. If Kate gets full custody and his visitation gets killed, she can do anything she likes with the kids. The way the Judges are in PA, I would not be too surprised if Kate gets it all, her way. It would truely be a sad day on this earth. As, for moving to LA. LOLOLOLOL Everything in LA is twice the amount it is everywhere else. Housing alone is expensive. Knowing Kate she would want to live in Malibu. LA it self is not a posh place, neither is any of the surrounding suburbs. She will be broke in no-time. And the market for homes these days is very poor, to next to nothing. jmo

zoey said...

wait a second... the Gosselin estate is up for sale? seriously? why did she bring the dog back then? bring a dog back... to a property you are ditching? these poor kids have litterally NOTHING stable in their life. why is she moving?

Swissmiss said...

I had not heard about the estate in Penn. going up for sale. Kate and Jon go to court next week, I think.

Maybe she wanted a value put on the property for the court meeting. Of course, if TLC is no longer paying the bills, I don't know how she could afford to live there any more.

last2cu said...

If you notice Kate's hand on Steve's hand on the car That is just too familiar for me..she would have run around NYC without shoes on to avoid touching Jon's hand..LOL i forgot she's already done that!

TiredofKatesDrama said...

Hopefully this link will clear up the misperceptions about what Kate can and can't do regarding taking the kids out of state. It also explains clearly how custody decisions are based in PA, and that Gosselin kids will remain under the jurisdiction of PA if she does move elsewhere.

No, Kate just wanted the limo, IMO.

And frankly, who wants a limo with a divider anymore? It's laughable! Most celebs want a Lexus or those big, tricked out SUV's with the tinted windows. I can't think of the name right now...but limos? Not so much. Where is she going, the prom? This again proves so many or our points; people that come into money that are stupid to begin with, have no clue. What are the names are those SUV's? It's driving me insane now! The ones all the REAL stars get driven around in...

Oh, & then there are people like Cameron Diaz, Julia Roberts, Leonardo DiCaprio (& me, but I'm no star) who drive a Toyota Prius. That says a lot. I think Julia Roberts showed up at the Oscars in her Prius one year! They are no Diva. Love it!

Button Button said...
Aren't these shows already taped?

I do know that DWTS is live as my girlfriend works for a TV company out there and she gets free tkts. She attended a lot of Kate's shows, also Jake the Pavelka. My girlfriend said it takes a good 3 hrs or more to get thru security, plus the waiting before they do a preliminary show to get lighting, etc., correct. She also said that both of these two were terrible.Kate would talk to no one not even Tony and Jake talked to everyone, running around like on speed. Quite a look at their personalities. When Kate was dancing as soon as the music started, she lost it, every time, could hardly move and Tony was talking to her and pulling her, turning her, yet smiling and talking thru clenched teeth. It was funnier in the studio then on TV. Yet, my girlfriend said that Kate had an "it" factor when the camera looks at her face, straight on, full face. She has beautiful eyes, perfect facial/hair coloring and when her lighting came on, like when she was getting the judges' opinions, Kate looked like a movie star.Even though covered with makeup. She had the viewers watching. When she was off the show and showed up as a viewer in the audience, she talked to no one, not even Jake who usually sat next to her with Vienna. Plus Jake would go thru security like the audience after he was off the show, but Kate would just appear and sit down before the actual show went on TV.

See, lighting does everything, takes away lines, etc. And then of course add in her whiter than white teeth. Plus she is thin in person, not a heavy person, not an ounce of fat, very thin.

So I guess the way she dresses and the angles make her look like chunky legs, thighs. I don't know, but in the world of Magic, Hollywood, they can make any of us look beautiful.

So, I guess that is what the big folks who run those shows, like, she can pull in an audience better without the kids.

My GF said that only 2 of the gosselin girls had the it factor, one was Hannah and they try to keep her on camera as well as one of the twins, but I don't remember which one. The boys have no appeal now that they are older and a couple of the tup girls aren't photographic either or have a personality when being filmed.

GF said that Kate had that show K+8 when she was on DWTS and had to finish that before her "other offers" were considered. GF also said that Kate is in demand by Hollywood because she by herself draws more viewers.

Only what I was told.

Only passing her info along. So appeal is everything. BYW, Kate is a smoker, who chews nicotine gum to stop smoking, has always smoked except when she was pregnant. Was a heavy smoker.

Brummygirl said...

Hollywood wants Kate? Oh, give me a break. Even if she is photogenic, the minute she opens her gum smacking mouth and tries to act, it will be over.
It reminds me of a movie about silent pictures and how once they brought the sound in, the heroine had such an awful speaking voice, they had to do voice over.
Since when does a 35/6 year old break into Hollywood? She would have to be exceptionally talented in acting, singing or dance and we know she cannot do any of those.
Dream on Kate, join the daily rejection lines at the agencies.
Well that's my first laugh for the day!!!

I Wanna Hold Yer HAND! said...

@last2cu: YES! That is the Beast's hand ON Steve's hand.! Oh wow; I had always held out that PurseBoy had more brains than this, but the Lord keeps TRYING to show me/us, now doesn't He?
It wouldn't be two seconds after seeing a pic showing this that I, if I were Gina N., would be on the HORN with my loving husband! And NOT to complement him on his photogenic-nish-ish....

jonandkatewho? said...

I'm sorry but I disagree with Kate being beautiful or having any kind of an "it factor"; I also do not believe that Hollywood wants her. Phhhttttt.....lol lol.

I find her to be overly made up and fake. Her hair is a hot mess. She dresses horribly. Her face has never been really pretty but when she used to have the shorter hair and looked like a "normal mom" she was borderline attractive in her own way.

She has no talent and this is obvious. I also do not believe any of her kids have an "it factor". Those kids are plain. I am sorry and I mean no disrespect to them at all, but they are not super good looking kids. One or more may grow up to be sort of attractive, but I doubt any will be drop dead gorgeous, who knows really? Meanwhile they are not cute anymore, as toddlers and babies can be, nor are they attractive, they are at a midpoint where awkwardness can come into play. I remember it well myself. Nobody in the whole family has an "it factor". I think Mady would come closest, but nowadays she hams it up and overacts for the cameras as do the rest. Nobody is being "real" in this reality family. It's very sad really.

Kate wanted in Hollywood? Sorry but I don't buy it. Wanted for what? I honestly don't think that the real professionals out there would put up with her for one moment longer than they had to.

Jane in California said...

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

We know Kate would never stand in line - she'd make purse boy do it for her, while she snoozed in the front seat of the car.

zoey said...

if Kate goes to Hollywood, she basically become Heidi Montag only uglier and older.
the media will get so annoyed and tired of her they will turn on her!
the only reason she is probably interesting to rag mags and such is she is currently a nobody in anytown, PA and thats the only interesting thing about her!
if she is not currently respectful toward people including famous encounters she may have had, how is moving there going to change that? once a witch.. always a witch

Living it up in Alaska said...

IMHO...if Hollywood wanted her, she would have jumped on it leaving those kids in the dust. She would have more gigs than being a special ET correspondant, Dancing with the Stars, or the promised "Twist of Kate" series. She would been on every talk show as soon as the cameras were on. It doesn't seem like many people in the industry are that interested in her. How would like to work with her?

As far as her appeal...she can be attractive but then you look closer at what she is wearing, her hair style or whatever and combine that with her attitude and she looks great for a 50 year old...oops I mean a 45 year old...oops...I mean a 40 year old..sorry, can't go lower.

Child Advocate by Trade said...

Tired of Kate put a link up for family law.

There too many family law books and cases where "when a family suffers
severely and it is proven that they can be removed from their place of residence, schools, etc." There are always exceptions. Always.

Law is not black and white; that is why most people do not represent themselves, but hire someone who is schooled and licensed in law to represent them.Must be prepared to appear before any Judge.

The Custody Hearing Judge/Family Court can do most anything that is in the children's best interests. A trip to live out of the area may be what those children need or a boarding school out of the area, in another state. They are removed from an area/school where their lives are drastically affected. We
must remember that the Judge could take custody away from both parents, but I doubt that.

Just Wondering Who Makes the Call said...

Why does Jon & Ellen meet the kids at the school bus and stand there, keeping the driver from shutting the doors? Why isn't Ellen working for the govt? Or isn't she working and depending on her Advice Col?

Who does Jon call to take those photos?

Who calls to have photos of Collin running around his yard with the dog?

Someone makes those phone calls to a photographer.

Wonder who? Who is it keeping Jon and Kate in the Press?

Can't watch TV, can't look into the Net said...

By the way, Kate is on ET tonight, just saw the Bitch on Et, coming up in a minute...........oh my can't get away from anything.

dee has had enough... said...

So, I guess she traded the kids expulsion story in exchange for the ET gig....the depths that she will stoop to to keep herself in front of the camera...it's nauseating!!!!

readerlady said...

Khate is like a cat with 9 lives (sorry kitties - I know that's an insult to you). Or maybe she's a Phoenix. Just when we think she's been consumed by the fires, she rises from the ashes to haunt us yet again. I wish she'd just GO AWAY, once and for all.

snark attack said...

Friend of friend, I am in no way criticizing you, as you are merely repeating what someone in the business told you, but I have a hard time believing people think Kate has the 'it' factor. She is not a pretty woman, is borderline retarded with her childish behavior and may be thin in person, but has a very unattractive, dumpy body on camera. Her coloring is fake, fake, fake from her hair to her skin to her horse teeth. And she does not have pretty eyes; rather, she has pretty eye. Wonk wonk.

Toxic Shock said...

GF also said that Kate is in demand by Hollywood because she by herself draws more viewers

She is? Boy, you could have fooled me! I thought she was toxic in Hollywood, the quintessential laughingstock and nobody will touch her.

Who Needs To Work? said...

I could tell you stories about my dgtr's friends and what they go thru, but it will come back to them and they need their jobs.Think of all the money I could make selling those storys.

If you could make money on the stories, why not go ahead and sell them to the highest bidder? You could share the proceeds with your daughter, and then she wouldn't need her job!

SmileyGrl752 said...

Why is Kate selling her house? Has she actually found a place in Hollywood?!

Did Kate post that? said...

I will admit up front that I can't stand Kate Gosselin. But what is all this about her not having an ounce of fat on her body? Is she typing that? Because during her stint on DWTS, kate was bloated, overweight, out of shape and much heavier. People were speculating that antidepressants had caused her to blow up because the weight gain was so striking. I think she looked heavier in part because she wasnt wearing 5 inch heels, but she definitely had an extra 20 pounds or so during that time. So I'm confused as to why this person said she was so skinny. while filming dwts. She wasn't. Also, we've seen the jogging photos with the nipple-baring sports bras. The woman has fat thighs with lots of cellulite and saggy skin and lipo scars from hip to ankle. Also, I believe she's also had lipo on her belly, too, as she has lost that kangaroo pouch of flab beneath her belly button and her belly skin looks very saggy now compared to last year. I dunno. It just sounds fishy to me that someone wpuld comment how beautiful and skinny Kate was during DWTS. She was maybe at her least attractive during that time. She is not fat, but 'not an ounce of fat'? Hell no. And especially hell no during dwts.

the kids need him said...

If Kate loved her kids, she would not separate them from their father by a continent. No matter how she feels about Jon. It would be a true tragedy for them and him if she moved them away from him. Tell me THAT isn't so.

SmileyGrl752 said...

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

A million in LA sure isn't going to get her anything near what she had in LA. It'll take a few more millions for that. And well you all know kate she'll want to live as large as she can.

Can't See Sheep said...

Did Kate post that?, I was wondering what was up with this too. I mean we can all plainly see what kate looks like the NON-DOCTORED pics are everywhere & they don't show a person with zero body fat, I mean come on that's laughable. And skinny??? Not when she was standing beside the other women on DWTS, my,my, my if katie's skinny the the other women are poor fading little street waifs, best get them to the hospital & on IV quick before they fade away to nothing. Sorry, I just don't believe a bit of it.

Maybe it's the boobyguard Steve typing this less than believeable drivel, I'm sure he thinks she's beautiful & Hollywood worthy, but then he would, that's his ticket to more cash! I mean hey, Gina's not out there hussling TV execs trying to be a stah.

lipopottamus said...

Speaking of lipo... Remember when Kate was 'depressed' for two weeks after DWTS ended and was MIA? Correct me if I'm wrong, but once she recovered from her ordeal (roll eyes), wasn't she was photographed coming out if the gym flashing her fabulous abs? I remember being surprised that her belly was as flat as it was since she was so bloated just a few weeks before on dwts. Just like after her boob job, Kate then couldn't resist flashing her latest surgical results. We had to endure pix of that frankenbelly thru the summer until someone finally made her stop, thank goodness. The woman probably took that dwts check straight to the plastic surgeon so she could have a flat stomach 'for the kids. Pathetic. '

Vanessa said...

It's all in the eye of the beholder as far as someone thinking she's "skinny". She was side by side with Pamela Anderson, the Pussycat doll chick and all the other female pro-dancers. She did not look skinny or tiny.
If the camera adds pounds than those other dancers must be anorexic.

Vanessa said...

She's got the "IT" factor for the reality genre of television, dysfunction, obxoniousness, callousness, arrogance, big boobs, blonde hair, cmf attire...and when she was at her peak (divorce announcement) there was scandal.

I hadn't even thought of that! I agree, she has no shame whatsover.

Gosselin8ComeFirst said...

I seriously doubt Hollywood wants Kate. Right now she is a "big fish" in a small pond, at least she thinks so.

Her moving from house to house in very short spurts is indicative of her narcissim. 2006 - Mt. Joy Twp; 2008- Elizabetown; and 2009 - McMansion. Nothing will ever be good enough for her. To hell with what is best for her kids.... like some stability.

Friend of friend in the business said...

GF said Illusion is powerful. She said if you saw most of the STAHS in person, you would never recognize them. She does not care for Kate but said Kate is a pretty woman. The camera can be your friend or your enemy, if you don't know how to work it. Apparently Kate is learning how to work it.

I know no one here likes Kate and I certainly don't but some people do and that keeps her on TV.

Mt.Joyer said...

I use to live in Mt. Joy and I'll bet Kate is doing what she does to show up the folks in Mt. Joy who are down to earth folks. More average and not showy at all. Is that where she was raised?

Friend of friend in the business said...

Most people who work behind the scenes for those shows, keep quiet about the STahs, protecting their own jobs.What could you possibly be paid for "telling what goes on behind the scenes" vs having a job with benefits. Most of those people don't even pay attention to the Stahs, just a job with Stahs who come and go.

CanineDivine said...

OMG that was the worst interviewing job I've ever seen. But since this show is so incredibly D-list, it seems appropriate. :-)

Proud Grandma said...

Oh like, that was, like, a pathetic, like, interview ARGHHHHHH. "Oh my kids all six er eight like, er um my Cara, like would like, er be the best, like um er, oh my kids love, like er, Disney programs. ARGHHHHHH HE KISSED ME like"
That woman needs to go home and take mothering classes, because she sure won't make it as an interviewer.

PR said...

I don't know who Friend of a friend in the business is BUT Kate typing it on a blog doesn't' make it so. Those of us who have worked in the business are sitting back laughing. Kate is so far under most people's radar in Hollywood that she still on the ground. The it factor? Kate Gosselin? I.DON'T.THINK.SO. Kate did not endear herself to anyone during her stint on DWTS and she only got the ET SWTS gig because they (ET) had hired her for DWTS but DWTS didn't want her around. As someone else pointed out right now she's a big fish in a little pond...in LA she'd be a guppie in a shark tank.

Jane in California said...

The thing is - Kate can indeed be very pretty, for entire moments at a time. But what inevitably happens is that someone displeases her, asks a question she doesn't care for, or just interrupts her self-love fest, and the plastered smile fades, the mouth turns down, the lies come out, the stumblings and mumblings, etc. She ALWAYS turns the conversation back to herself -- and that's not what makes a good interviewer.

She is thin - I grant you that. Especially when viewed sideways, she's very slender. But viewed face on - for some reason, she often looks dumpy.

Whatever comes across in person is not actually important for a career on tv. It's what comes across the television screen. She does not connect well with most viewers.

Let's compare her to Kyle Massey, currently on DWTS. That guy just bursts across your screen and gets you rooting for him. He's fun, full of energy, and you find yourself smiling in response. In contrast, Kate came across as sullen, clueless, and lunked around the dance floor. She had a golden opportunity to connect with a HUGE new audience who hadn't seen her before, and she blew it.

So when I hear insiders saying they think she's got "it," I think maybe they need to step outside their own world for a bit and back into the world the rest of us share. They can keep trying to foist Kate on the viewing public, but as TLC could tell them -- in the end, the viewing public really doesn't like her. She can get thinner, have more surgical procedures, whiten those teeth til they glow in the dark, and practice her fake smile and still the veneer is so thin and so transparent, the general public will turn away either in disgust or disinterest. Hollywood is welcome to Kate and welcome to invest time and money in promoting her if they are desperate enough to do so, but it won't work.

Besides, there are literally thousands upon thousands of younger, prettier, more talented women who would gladly fill those shoes, with less demands than Kate.

The Industry said...

Kate Kreider's so-called "career" is in it's final death throes. We all knew she wouldn't go away quietly or with dignity. I can hear the death rattle from here.

That SWTS gig is proof-positive of what a complete joke she is. No one, I mean NO ONE wanted that pathetic assignment....except Kate "fame-whore" Kreider. She's the only one who didn't foresee how bad it would turn out.

I agree Skating with the Stars is a bottom ditch effort to either fill a prior contract, or chosen because ET agreed to same after she agreed to an interview regarding her kids' expulsion, in exchange for this job. Either way, she is scraping the bottom of the barrell on serious D-E List show. How sad and pathetic is she?

I saw Kate in person, she is a large woman. She is tall and has a large frame/bone structure comprable with her height. She has a very large head and face. That said, from the side she is as flat as a board - rail thin - with the exception being the two huge plastic flotation devices on her chest.

So no matter how much weight she looses or how much surgery she has, she will never be teeny tiny when side by side Natalie Morales or Pamela Anderson or Nicole Schezringer.

dream on, big woman said...

Interesting that the kid with the supposed it factor is hannie and the ones with zero are the icky boys. DID Kate type that? She would just LOVE there to be a rumor out there that she's really thin with zero body fat. Just like when her people pretended Hef offered her $400k to pose for playboy. Guess what, kate? People have eyes!!

Yolanda said...

We can talk all we want about how Kate doesn't have the "it" factor, but the truth is...she keeps getting all these gigs! There are hundreds of people who would love to be an ET correspondent, be on TV and interview stars. That is no bottom feeder job. Maybe the skating show sucks, but to be an ET correspondent is something that is highly sought after.

I am no fan of Kate, but she obviously has some kind of "in" with someone!

LancNative said...

Her moving from house to house in very short spurts is indicative of her narcissim. 2006 - Mt. Joy Twp; 2008- Elizabetown; and 2009 - McMansion.

Not exactly. They lived in Wyomissing (Berks County) until 2006 when they moved to Elizabethtown (Lancaster County) and then moved to Wernersville (Berks County) in 2008.

(Elizabethtown IS in Mt. Joy Township).

Hate the Bitch said...

Just a terrible interviewer, screeching,shouting, ugly faces she makes. Please, someone tell me how she is on TV? Is she "in bed" with someone? Are they trying to get ratings by having her make an ass out of herself. I cannot listen to that woman's voice, look at her big head and standing beside the other reality idiot, Bethany Frankel, she looks like a giant.

When are these Reality Shows going to be done, done, done?

BTW, I saw some footage of the next K+8 with the kids and the big surprise in the yard. Those kids scream, carry on, are out of control, you can see it. Sad to say, but those tups are ruined now that they have grown up on TV. I'll bet no one can give them orders, not their parents, teachers, counselors or the poor nannies. No way are those kids anything but spoiled, running wild. No parenting, obviously.

Someone get that ugly bitch off of Tv and she is ugly, not pretty or cute, no way. She is an ordinary woman with a lot of professional help that somehow, someway is interviewing people on TV. Unpleasant to listen to. No talent, still screaming with answers and questions. Way over the top.

I read somewhere this week, that kate is being mentored by Ryan Seacrest. If true, he is really lowering himself.

An interesting read about DWTS and SWTS. Kate was the commentator on the latter, right?

K8 vs Brit NoContest said...

Friend of friend in the business said...
GF said Illusion is powerful. She said if you saw most of the STAHS in person, you would never recognize them. She does not care for Kate but said Kate is a pretty woman. The camera can be your friend or your enemy, if you don't know how to work it. Apparently Kate is learning how to work it.

I know no one here likes Kate and I certainly don't but some people do and that keeps her on TV.

---------------------------
I don't know where "here" is -- So.CA? - but I agree and have said B4: Khate is "pretty" in the face. No doubt. Of course, most of us would agree 'pretty is as pretty DOES" and she is DISqualilfied as pretty or beautiful based on that. But I won't deny reality just to have sour grapes; she has a nice face and IF she had acted even with a modicum of decorum, grace, tact, humility, politeness etc. in the past couple of years, she and she alone could have pedaled hereself into some sort of D-List gig in L.A. or some such. Gotten the kids off the assembly line. Maybe even (gasp!) given thekids some privacy while she "took over" the moneymaking. Instead, it's gone the way it has gone, and ...well , you know. Train wreck.
At this point, I have to give Britney Spears an edge over K8 in the mothering dept, as well as how to conduct yourself in public. B.S. has kept her nose clean these past couple years,; must be following some handler's advice to the "T." And good on her for doing so! While K8, presumably has some sort of book smarts or some such after all she was a nurse...well K8 hasnt' seemed to as done as well as young, naive Brit-Brit. I know one other thing; dont' see too many pics in the media anymore of Britneys' boys, which is a good thing.

This is a full article that will be broadcasted TONIGHT (Wed.) with Mary Hart and Kate.

Mary asks Kate if the children were expelled and Kate answers, "Two of my children, no, are being tutored at home, with a teacher who is working closely with our kindergarten teachers in school, doing the identical curriculum."

Recently divorced Kate says, "The pressure was getting to them," explaining, "You have the divorce anger mixed in with that." But the mom stresses, "The goal is to get them back into school as soon as possible."

Kate also responds to other rumors, like one that her upcoming TLC show, "Twist of Kate," had been canceled. Kate says, that no, it wasn't canceled, adding, "We're sort of still trying to shape it [into] what it needs to be and what is going to be fun. So no, not canceled."

With Thanksgiving coming up Thursday, Kate also shares how the kids will be dividing holiday time between her and ex Jon. "We have been able to work out the holiday time peacefully," she tells Mary. "So I will have the first half, he will have the second half, and, we just take it year by year, and holiday by holiday."

You can catch Kate and the kids on a new "Kate Plus Eight" special, which airs this Sunday on TLC.

Kate also says that no way is "Kate Plus 8" going to be cancelled". In fact, she said that her kids would fall apart if filming stopped.And Kate said that they have many, many plans and ideas for "Kate Plus 8" in the future.

maggie said...

I forget to mention on the interview tonight (Wed.) with Kate on ET, Kate mentions that the kids are in counseling and that she HAD to bring SHoka back. That the kids can talk to him and he doesn't talk back.

:Like Dad said...

I agree with you Leaving on a Jet Plane. How in the world are you a good parent when you are on air planes and working 3,000 miles away? Who is there when those kids wake up at night crying or sick?

If Jon is reading all of these posts, he has written a lot of info down. He just needs to get his act together for the Custody Hearing and read from his notes, not ramble like he did last time. He has to have facts, facts Jon, Write down all the time she is away from those kids and all of that time away from the kids while AT HOME, on the phone, all of that.

Filling up a refrigerator, paying a Nanny, bringing a dog back so the kids have someone to talk to do not make family life for those kids.

Their anger is they are with each other only, fighting, fighting, fighting because they are alone and angry. They know how other kids live, especially the twins. How terrible to be 10 and be raising your 6 younger siblings? So Jon, spend that money on those kids and get custody. You should never have sold that bitch that house. I know she tortured you but you should have stood up and fought, now FIGHT, ONWARD, GO!

Oh to be a fly on the wall (with cellphone of course) to witness the day the TSA singles out Kate for a pat down. I can't imagine her obliging without a fuss.

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

And if the dog doesn't listen, will the kids take their anger out on the dog and beat up on him? Is the dog a surrogate parent? Will they direct their anger at the dog instead of their mother?

I'd love to get a psychologist's opinion on this one...

They can't talk to their own mother?

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

Will they make an extra copy of the body scan and sell it to the tabs? Will it reveal a breast implant? If she has a pat-down, will the woman write a tell-all about the not-a-boo-job? Will they have to sign a CA agreement?

good grief said...

From what little I saw as a link on another site, she's an idiot. Um, pause, ramble on without answering the question. What's with the Snooki bump do? It's bad enough she runs around half undressed like the Jersey Shore girls but now to emulate their hair styles ... give it up Kate.
I didn't catch her excuse for bringing the dog back. Really, she's saying it's so the kids have someone to talk to? Heaven forbid she actually talk to them.
She really is a grade A idiot. Kids having issues, so run off to CA and bring in a dog to be their confidant. Good job there supermom.

What I find fascinating is ET's obsession with an abusive mother. (Hambone)
---------------------------
Hambone, I agree with you! How can they think Kate Gosselin will do anything for their ratings? She isn't attractive or appealing. What is her talent?

I had the accidental misfortune, when channel-surfing, of seeing Kate Gosselin not once but TWICE on ET and I felt her tone, while being interviewed by Mary Hart, was over-the-top "affected" and not credible, especially the part about her kids having a tizzy (I don't recall how she coined it) if they couldn't be filmed for Kate Plus 8 (a show I've never watched). How stupid do they think we are, that such words would be believable, especially after all the bad press over the Gosselin children being filmed?

Man, if it were me, I'd get so tired of talking about myself and my life all the time. BORING. Kate Gosselin is SO old news.

I'm happy at Thanksgiving that I have the freedom to make choices. I choose to shun Kate Gosselin. She doesn't deserve my attention. I think she's a crummy mom. I'll give my time to the GOOD moms of the world instead!

WISHES: I wish so much that I could be complimentary rather than judgmental. I wish I could be lauding her for a fine job of mothering. Three wishes, if only...with the third one being a Happy Thanksgiving with lots of good memories for eight little kids with friends and cousins, aunts and uncles and grandparents, a holiday dinner to be shared by all.

so sick of her: "Knowing Kate she would want to live in Malibu."
************************
I know Malibu very well. My boyfriend lived there for years (he was acquainted with the rich enclave thru other "industry" connections). She is a poor fit for Malibu, trust me. But it sounds like she'll never fit in anywhere she goes because she's trying to be somebody or something she just isn't.

Live with truth, Kate. If you just would, better things would come your way.

wait a second... the Gosselin estate is up for sale? seriously? why did she bring the dog back then? bring a dog back... to a property you are ditching? these poor kids have litterally NOTHING stable in their life. why is she moving?
************
the dogs never meant anything to her...they're just property to discard, like the house...

How much do you love them? said...

the kids need him said...
If Kate loved her kids, she would not separate them from their father by a continent. No matter how she feels about Jon. It would be a true tragedy for them and him if she moved them away from him. Tell me THAT isn't so.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Heartfelt comment. I know so many parents who, yet divorced, remain on good terms for their children, because they love their children more than they hate each other. Their kids are first in their thoughts and any major decision is shared by both on the kids' behalf. That's what unselfish, caring parents do for the children they chose to bring into the world.

This poor animal...what is he, "Rent A Dog"??? I fear for the dog's soul and wellbeing, as always, from the day he and his litter mate were first brought into that chaotic household. You can't keep taking a dog in and out of a house without it affecting the dog, even an intelligent, sensitive German Shepherd. It's just another ridiculous, tragic, WRONG thing in Gosselin life.

If she takes a private jet, is she excluded from pat downs? Just curious. Isn't she too good for First Class on a conventional, commercial flight? She'd have to sit with other people, and they might even try to talk to her (ya know).

Hazel be good said...

Wonder what Mary Hart said to her wealthy friends over a wonderful dinner at her Mansion in the Hollywood Hills this day?

"Kate G is unaware of how terrible she sounds/looks/expresses herself and it is my job to try to make her look good, but her continual lying is just too see-through for the public, I doubt the woman will be in the business for very long. Oh and she has been a terrible mother and now she is reaping the results"

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

That embarassing interview she did with the washed up has-beens on SWTS. That guy she was fake drooling over. He told her she had a skaters body. I was cringing as I watched her try to act like a real correspondent that knew what she was doing. Jesus H. Christ Kate. You don't have it sweetheart. It's just too forced and phoney. I can't take it anymore. When is the torture going to end. It seems the more Kate tries, the more I feel like sticking my foot through the TV. Please stop trying to act like your new bought friend Mary Hart, who incidentally, is about as phoney as you are with her synchophantic behaviour and fake laugh. And don't get me started on that other nut, Cojo. I almost felt like Kate was acting a bit like him. Maybe he is her mentor. I use to watch ET but since Kate has been getting air time, I hate the show now. All those affected Hollywood people who live to be idolized by others. It's just wrong.

You know, if you really want Kate to be off tv you can not turn whatever she is on at all. Rating will go her way if you turn it on for one second, and if you dvr it or record it. It really is simple, don't watch anything she is on and she will not get offers to be on stuff. The ratings is what keeps her on air and in magazines if you buy them etc., just don't give her the money by turning her off and the with the ratings game at her losing she will not have offers to be on tv etc. Otherwise she will be around a long time and making millions of dollars just so people can see her use and neglect her children for fame and fortune. Send a loud and clear statement-don't turn on anything she is on. You don't even have to watch it long, if you turn on any show she is on, the ratings goes up for that show, any show she is on.

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

Anonymous, I watch everything on my computer like youtube for example when it comes to Kate the Fake. I should have clarified that when I said I wanted to shove my foot through the TV. If my kids happen to have a channel on and I see a clip of Kate trying so hard to be a celebrity, everyone in the house stops and looks at each other like what the hell is that douche doing on TV again. And then we turn the channel before we hear her screech over something so stupid that surely she is hoping she sounds cute to all her male suitors out there. There is no there explanation for that pushing 40 asshole behaving like a giddy 14 year old.

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

FYI, I doubt most of us here on this site watch anything that Kate is on. A few will watch the show, a few will youtube it or an interview. I am grateful to those who do risk injury to eyes, ears and mind to even watch a few minutes of the show and report back.

We're the choir. We've been singing the same tune for a longgggggggggg time about Kate. We don't need to be sold on the idea of turning off Kate. It's more the general public, but I think slowly but surely many of them are either growing tired of the show, or getting wise to Kate.

DoodleMooshie said...

I'm gonna bring a little twist here since I am a J&K+8 fan....
You all want the kids off TV.... Well the woman went and got a job w/o the kids. If u don't like her, don't watch it.
As big of a JK8 fan as I am, I do agree the show should be csncelled. It's no longer reality. And pulling your kids out of school to travel regularly is not a stable situation ESP for kids who's parents just got divorced. They either need to go back to filming reality, at home, or just stop. And when Kate is traveling, there shouldn't be a nanny. Jon should be there with those kids (and maybe a housekeeper)... They need their parents, not staff.
