For the poster who said she saw Kate in the Target parking lot talking. Did it look like she uses that phone to talk to the photographer and set up the shots beforehand? Was it just the one guy like everyone says about the "paps" that follow her? How on earth could you resist saying, "Chris, why do you find it necessary to show this person coming out of tanning salons, Target parking lots and FedEx? Is it really worth it??" I am shocked there is never a story of her being heckled either. I am sure there are many people who would make some sort of comment when they saw her. I'd probably at least have to say, "Wow, that's a lot of paparazzi you have there! Make sure you smile for Chris now". Or even, "Katie Irene! Where is your coat?!"

Fidosmommy: If Ted was good at matching hair to facial features, age, lifestyle, etc., first thing he'd know is that to match her personality you have to dye the hair black like all the other witches.

Can anyone think of any other person in the Entertainment Industry that has been as despised as this piece of reality trash? And I don't mean people that we 'like to hate', i.e., Erica Kane on All My Children, she was a character, we didn't 'hate' Susan Lucci.

Gaby said...

I apologize if anyone has mentioned this before. I found an article on Preeshi's site.The article proves that the "fan" posing with Kart at the airport in Austraila is actually pap! I find it comical that she had to resort to taking a picture with a pap willing to pose as a fan. LOL..Kart is a joke!

I might add that I am still completely disgusted that when Jon does have custody, the kids are picked up and dropped off at the front gate. What kind of mother would do that?

The kind that has strangely and ironically forgiven Jon.

Im not familiar with the world of divorce.Is this a normal action when switching custody to help the child separate life with mom and life with dad? Any therapists or lawyers care to weigh in.

Kate forgiven Jon? You're kidding, right?

Divorced parents are counseled to make the visitation transition as amicable and smooth as possible and to NOT create any impression of discontent between them. Kate's insistence that Jon not be allowed on the property to pick up his kids is teaching them that when parents divorce they're not supposed to do what is best for their kids, that they're not supposed to talk and work out their problems, and that they're supposed to hold grudges.

Kate's message to her kids with rules like this is that her anger and resentment for Jon are more important to her than her love for them.

"Kate's message to her kids with rules like this is that her anger and resentment for Jon are more important to her than her love for them."

That's assuming she has any love for the children.

Carol in PA said...

What love for her kids???? She has none. The only love she has is for her own (in her mind) fame and the money that she gets from working these kids to death. I can't remember even once her hugging or kissing any of them, except for Hannah. And even then I don't recall a kiss for her, either.

I hope this train wreck is over soon.

You're Not Fooling Us said...

In response to Barbra asking who is so despised in the entertainment industry...the only one I can think of if O.J. Simpson...he was and is so hated yet we were all glued to any information about him just waiting for justice to be served and for him to be exposed as the horrible person he was/is...just like Kate...I think we are all just waiting for her to be exposed in the press for the lying, conniving, hypocrit that she is.

HW said...

My parents' divorce was not an amicable one - mainly because of my mother; however, my dad always came into the house to pick us up and drop us off. He waited in the living room while we got ready to go and the two adults visited nicely. On the rare occasion that my mom picked us up at his place (he was in a different town and sometimes she'd spend the day in that town shopping,etc) she came to his door and nicely waited inside while we got ready to go. I'm sure it was uncomfortable for both of them but they did it the right way.
Also, every time my dad had us on the weekend, he asked us "how has your mother been this week?" It wasn't until I became an adult that I realized how gracious this was on his part - showing an interest in his kids' other parent.

I think it's despicable of Kate to make her kids' father wait at the gate like a delivery man. I'm shocked the court has not ordered a change in this.

I wouldn't even give her the time of day. That's exactly what she wants - to be recognized. It doesn't matter to her if the comments are negative. Locals here know better. She's not acknowledged. Best to just ignore her and let her THINK she's a star. Why feed her narcissism?

The ironically ironic point about this is, it is not the divorce she is mad about, as she orchestrated that one, but the fact that he messed up her plans for her reach for fame.
Along with Crass, Classless, Clueless, she is also Childish in P.A. (and that *ish* is legal!!! :)

She is a cow said...

I've got the next great money making scheme for Kate. She could do the show WIPEOUT! It would be perfect. It is on ABC, who seem to still support her, (R&K, TODAY, DWTS), She could make some quick cash in an afternoon, and she could show off that superior body that she is always talking about, afterall, she is in the best shape of her life. Heck, she could do it in a bikini! Wouldn't you just love to see her negotiating that course and getting smacked, slapped, bounced all over the place?! She'd be doing it all for the sake of the kids of course...she'll do anything for the kids.

New Here said...

Hello...I'm new here. A friend was talking to me about Kate and suggested I "google" to find out what has been going on with that family. I spent about an hour and see now why she finds the Gosselin situation quite upsetting.

If there are other readers here who don't know the story, and want to know it, start here. Very revealing.

Regarding the story about Kate pissing off Steve's parents in New Zealand, I'm curious to know how this story would leak out. Any ideas anyone? I always wonder how this stuff gets out (that is, providing it is true). Seems to me it had to be one of his family members.

faline said...

I thought it was funny when Youre Not Fooling Us compared Kate to Oj Simpson. I thought they both had similar book titles: Oj had "I want to tell you " and Kate has "I just want you to know"

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

There is no way in H e double LL that I would say one thing to that tarty looking hooker shoed orange colored woman. She acts like she is 14 or 15 with not an ounce of class. She certainly doesn't.

The AA is of course with respect to African American bodyguard.

As for Kate loving her children? Very doubtful, what happened to Jon staying at the house and she left on Jon's visiting days? Well, this is what happened in the court records.

Kate reported Jon had an unauthorized babysitter, the police were called, she was at the gate, it made all of the newspapers. She went to court and told the Judge "that she just goes and stays at a hotel, paying not just for her but for her bodyguard and incurs expenses, money she cannot afford" so why should Jon stay there anyhow?

The Judge ruled that Jon's visitation should consist of picking up the children or arrange travel to his place.

Yes, that is exactly what happened. Jon then no longer had the security #s to get into the gates and neither do the kids.

This was all experienced in the court room with my own two ears.

Maybe Kate gave the Tiffany silver frame with her kid's photo in it to Steve' parents because that was her way of saying "here is your son and the 8 Stars he works for"......how degrading.

If you want to spend a few minutes on J & K, go to you tube and type in discipline and the gosselins....and you will see why and know why those children are not loved nor disciplined the right way. A severe disorder that should have been stopped a long time ago. Even today, as the kids are older, when they hit each other? They truly hurt each other. So I would assume Kate hurts them too as those kids get stronger and a couple of them are very strong. You also see which are the favorites of Kate and which she really dispises from age 2. Right there to look at.

TLC should scrub their screens, that in itself is a disgrace what TLC put on TV and encouraged those parents to do. She is crazy, 100% crazy.

I am relatively new to the divorced world myself. But my Ex has a key to my house so when we do dropoff/pickup and I am not home yet they can let themselves in, grab a snack, pack clothes or whatever.

The early stages of divorce definitely weren't easy, as one would expect after 17 years together. But they (so far) have never gotten nasty and I am convinced that if you just HONESTLY put the kids first it takes much of the moral ambiguity out of most decisions that need to be made together.

I will admit being divorced right about the same time as J&K is what attracted me to their story. As it turns out it's been one of those 'what NOT to do' things and has actually helped me take the high road and basically do the opposite of what they do in most situations!

Thanks kHATE!

Katie Irene Gosselin:

IN GOATLIKE EERINESS

she is evil said...

I am a happily divorced mother of two. My ex and I were very happy for many years and the reason for our divorce still alludes me. The best I can come up with us that my ex no longer wanted to be married...to anyone. I was, of course, angry and upset with the split, as it was not my choice. But he was always a great dad, still is, and even at the height of my anger with him, I couldn't imagine anyone but him taking care of our girls when I wasn't available. We split time with them 50/50 and both see them every day, if only for a few minutes while they come to retrieve something at one of our homes. Now divorced two years, the ex and I are the best of friends, hang out often, and the four of us eat meals together several times a week. It is something I am very proud of and a wonderful gift to our kids. Divorce doesn't have to be ugly or unfriendly. We manage to still be a family together. While I would LOVE to be remarried or have a boyfriend, that's not the most important thing right now. Our kids are teens now and weathered our breakup with minimal trauma. Jon has indicated many times that he hoped to coparent peacefully with Kate. She should be thankful that he not only is a wonderful dad but that he also wants to see those kids regularly. So much so that he's willing to fight her ass in court to win back the parental rights that never should have been taken from him in the first place. I pray for Jon. I wish him well. And I hope he prevails in court. I have no hope whatsoever that Kate will stop with her petty ridiculous behavior. It is beyond sad that she would make it so hard for him to be with their kids. They adore him.

Bravo to you and your ex for putting your children first!!

Statistics show that many marriages will end in divorce, but at the least, the two parents should set aside anger and bitterness when it comes to the children.

I will admit that I don't like my son's father; he annoys the heck out of me and I do not wish to spend much time around him. But he is a good dad to our son, my son loves him, and so my feelings are my own and kept private. I am courteous when he comes to pick him up, I never say anything bad about him.

It's such a shame that you know that the Gosselin kids have to constantly hear negative put-down about Jon by Kate.

I am one of those who does not believe Kate loves her own children, or that she ever really did. She loved the idea of having multiples, of the fame and benefits it would bring to her. She loved them as accessories when they were still small enough to place where she wanted at will and couldn't talk back.

But the older they get, the more you can see them as a source of annoyance and bother for her. She takes absolutely no joy in doing anything for them or with them. Her biggest smiles are never directed at them, I never see her sharing a laugh or a spontaneous hug or loving moment with any of them. She's cold hearted to the bone.

That's why I never say "I wish Kate would just stay home and take care of her kids." Personally, I think the worse times they have are in her company.

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

I read some posts on a blog and people are saying Kate and Steve made up the story about his parents disliking her for PR reasons. Sounds about right to me. No one can figure out who would have leaked the info. I guess things will start getting weird now that Kate has to keep herself in the public eye somehow. I did wonder who would have leaked out the info from the visit with his parents. I can visualize Steve and Kate sitting in her room over a bottle of wine. Kate drunk and throwing out ideas. Both laughing, Kate cackling, hysterically. Reminds me of Michael Jackson and the tactics he used to keep his PR machine rolling........

Pattypanda said...

I am sure I won't get a response, but I emailed the state of PA and asked if they have gone after Kate the millionaire for the services she received when she knowingly conceived children she knew she could not afford. http://www.dpw.state.pa.us/Feedback/index.htm?ContactCode=CONTENTWEB&Subject=Other,%20Not%20Listed%20Above

If anyone is a resident of PA, I think it's your right to get an answer to the question of the scams Kate pulled. Jon was along for the ride, pulled by the nose ring. She was the mastermind behind 95% of their fraudulent actions.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You know, I have wondered about this myself. I had a set of multiples in PA back in the 70's. They were 12 weeks early and much sicker than the Gosselin babies were. l.

We had to go on state aid as our insurance did not cover pregnancy. Once healthy enough, they were sent home with us with nothing. No nurse, no medicine, no WIC, nothing. One baby didn't even have a sucking reflex and it would take us an hour to get a couple ounces of formula into her. We were on our own every step of the way.

We were told by the social worker assigned to our case that if we came into money within a certain period of time, we would have to pay every penny back to the state.

When our babies were 6 months old, they took our medical aid away from us because they said my husband made too much money at his part time job and from that point on we had to play the pediatrician as well as buy formula, diapers and medications. Things must have really changed a lot in PA since I lived there.

Jon and Kate have no idea how lucky they had it. Her sob story is just that, a story. They were very well provided for from the state and everyone else that helped them and should have been grateful for all they received. She just didn't want to do the work of caring for her babies. Now that they have so much money, they should most definitely have to pay the state back every single penny spent on them.

Ampersmom said...

My ex and I have been divorced 28 years. When we got divorced we were "friendly" to each other our disagreements were done in private, behind closed doors away from the kids..
I followed my mother's advice - don't talk bad about their father where the kids could hear, they may come to hate you for it. So Kate..there are some words of wisdom for you, though what I have learned about you, you will never use them.
So sad for your children.

That's exactly why she does think she's a star. She seems to be made of teflon. No justice ever falls on her; no one in public ever seems to say their piece of mind to her. She thinks she is loved and untouchable by anyone who does not adore and worship her. Seriously, if she is walking around Target and some of the people who post such vicious things online (other sites normally) ran into her, I could see someone humiliating her. Just to point out to her that there really is no team of photographers falling on each other for her pictures would make her squirm. Plus if I were a parent at her bus stop I'd ask her why she needs to have her hired pap invade the kids' privacy.

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

No, Tami. I don't think you understand. IT WOULDN'T MATTER! Calling her out on something wouldn't knock her down a peg or two. She wouldn't care! As much as you would get satisfaction from speaking your mind, it wouldn't make one bit of difference! She doesn't think she's loved by everyone. Last spring she admitted, "I would guess that 90 percent of my audience doesn't like me." Nothing you say or do would have any effect. Why waste your energy? Just to make you feel good?

Of course it was! I bet that one of the nights she spent cuddling her box of wine he sneaked into her room and installed a radio transmitter into one of her cavities. That's how Jon's able to get all the dirt on poor defenseless kate and twitter it for the world to see.

She talked bad about Jon to the children when they were still married on the show.

Don't listen to Daddy, he's mean or don't listen to Daddy, he doesn't know what he is talking about.

To the camera in front of the kids-I don't know if he is coming back - maybe they know something I don't (when the kids cried when Jon left).

And about him being fat - he wouldn't fit in that many places as the camera panned down to show her own then wide behind. Begging him to work out so he would like he "used to."


No telling what was said in private. And those kids have watched those tapes and over and over again for naptime and bedtime.

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

First of all there is no statue of limitations on repaying the State of Pa for assistance received. They place a lien against your home, if you have one, against your car, etc., They appear on your credit rating if you attempt to buy a house. They do get their money back, so I would assume that the witch had to pay that money back when they sold the Hut (as she would call it) they sold to buy a bigger Hut in E town, before the very very big Hut in Wernersville. Yep, they got their money back.

I work for the system of Pa and I know they will find you, hunt you down and you will repay. Easier to hunt down the mothers and keep track of property owned.

Okay folks, now the leak about Steve's parents? She never met his parents. That is baloney and her camp PR probably leaked it, anything to keep her name in the Press. I called it when she came back from Aussie, right to the hair/tan/mani-pedi. She never met them. They couldn't be bothered and what would they have to say to her? Heard you were the big HO from the USA? No way she met his parents.Nor would those children behave in someone's house. He probably went to see them to say hi, but no way she went also. Very inappropriate behavior in NZ.

Also, when I saw her in the parking lot the other day, not only was she very, very orange, with extreme white/blond hair and a long face, but she was under the influence of something. Not that I was close enough to smell anything, but I was parked a car away and she was talking into the air and waving her fingers and hands around talking about everyone wants to know where I'm going next, you do don't you as the guy taking the pictures didn't answer. I seriously thought of calling 911 and reporting a woman under the influence or being sick and driving. She was not sober Jon. either medication or liquid medication.

Little did I know she was going to pick up her kids. Now this morning I saw those pictures and she is looking in those pictures like she had a box of wine under her belt or some powerful pills. Her behavior was strange, look at the photos again and you will see her face and how she acts as not only no coat but her facial behavior looks as though she is puzzled as the kids try to talk to her and the puzzled looks on their faces.

For those who think we who live here near her should say something, it would be funny, actually. The woman does not look at any one. Rarely talks to a cashier. She loves being looked at, attracting attention. I have seen many women make an attempt to move toward her and their husbands grab their arms like "don't bother" as she is strange looking...very orange colored and the hair very different colors that a teenage girl would do to herself, teenage clothing on, an older face. There is no doubt she will not look your way if you attempted to speak to her. She is not going to listen to your compliments or your criticizm. Not how "she rolls" as she would say.

Who gets dressed with heels, low cut blouses to go through a parking lot? She does in the summer, fall, spring, but to see her in artic temps with no coat and acting like she wasn't cool, cold at all? She had some inner warmth going.

Think if we can't save the Gosselin kids, well we can ask the state of PA to insist that women in their 20s who already have 2 healthy children would require psychological testing to have additional multiples. Something so wrong with this doctor and what she did, so very wrong.

Good luck to Jon, but I think he will keep fighting while she buries him alive and she will do it. She is a cold, bizarre person. Hope you all get to run into her in a shopping area. You will see.

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

Maybe Mady and Cara watched their mother stroll in on Steve's parents's turf with her boobs hanging out and were also embarassed about the photo she gave them. When they get home they casually mention this to their dad. Maybe Jon is trying to bring the Queen down. Nah, he'd never do that. Then again, knowing the Queen, maybe she didn't allow those 8 little irritants to accompany her when she made her big impression. These kids need a normal life and she's doing everything in her power to prevent it.

I am not a local, but I agree entirely with you, it would irk Kate to just ignore her presence. She obviously thrives on attention good or bad.

Pattypanda said...

I just had a thought about how unreal the kids lives are.They get back from weeks away and what do they have to show their father? Probably nothing. Lots of kids 9-10 years old have digital cameras now. I have never seen one picture of Cara or Mady with a camera. They might actually show an excitement about their experiences if the could share them in their own way. Most of the pics in Australia show kids that were very bored. How much fun they could have on their computer learning to download pics and crop, etc. and print memories for a scrap book. Just more of their childhood being stolen by their stupid mother Even when my son was young he has a ninga turtle camera. We gladly got his pictures developed, which included many of his own eye. We still laugh when we look at his pictures, because we know he took them, because of the turtle in the corner of each pic.
Kate is still babyfying them, the little kids are so insecure, they often need to carry around stuff toys at their only comfort. Such sad little people.

path said...

I could see Mady or Cara telling Jon the story of visiting Steve's parents. The details of the tardiness, the gift & even the feelings of Steve's relatives would all be things those twins could understand. I could see all of them waiting for Kate's makeup, hair, clothes to be right. I could see that picture being given & one or both of the twins being upset by the idea of Steve as "new daddy". Kate's preoccupation with chasing a relationship must rub one of them the wrong way. Finally, I would hope the family members would not treat the children poorly, but I could see Mady picking up on vibes of distaste coming from others. She seems to be able to read between the BS and gets to the real deal.

lol. That is funny. If I feel good, it is not a waste : ) To YOU it would be a waste. However, if something makes one feel good, it is worthwhile. Locals? I don't think many locals post here. I know some people have many different names they like using, but I can tell there aren't too many actual locals posting here. I would be curious; anyone out there who is a local and regularly posts, could you respond. Thanks!

No, it's Jon AND Ellen who leaked the story a out the Neilds disliking Kate. SometImes I want to take down the sheeple as they make their stupid points but it is a waste if time. They cite quotes from Kate (as if she ever spoke the truth), believe what they want to believe and lie!! Once I went toe to toe with a sheeple who still claimed Kate was the one to file for contempt. I told her to check preesis site and she pooh-poohed that (meanwhile, she was citing tmz or radar). I then told her that preesi had scans of the docket that disproved what she believed. Again she scoffed at preesi and said she went to the courthouse herself and the only filing on record was Kate's. It was at this point that I realized that I had been wasting my time, that this person was a liar and misinformed. When she was finally caught in her lie, did she apologize for calling me stupid, fat, clueless and old? Take a wild guess. Nah, she just stopped posting that evening. I'll never acknowledge a sheep again.

They had video cameras at the Statue of Liberty and on the ferry ride back were interviewing their brothers and sisters about what they saw. I don't know if they were digital cameras with video or those little flip-type video cameras. My own nine-year-old doesn't have her own camera, but buy a her a cheap digital for camp this summer.

No, Tami. I don't think you understand. IT WOULDN'T MATTER! Calling her out on something wouldn't knock her down a peg or two. She wouldn't care! As much as you would get satisfaction from speaking your mind, it wouldn't make one bit of difference! She doesn't think she's loved by everyone. Last spring she admitted, "I would guess that 90 percent of my audience doesn't like me." Nothing you say or do would have any effect. Why waste your energy? Just to make you feel good?

Locals! Please back me up on this!

I got your back Berks!


I live about 60 mi. away from Khate but I do have a relative who lives within a few miles of Kate and who crosses paths with her about 1-3 times a month. More on that in a minute.

When the show first took off people would excitedly approach Kate when they saw her in public. This is when they still lived in E-Town. They assumed Kate would be the same nice person they saw on TV. They often had their excited children with them and Kate often would have one or both twins with her. Kate did not like being approached in public. At that time she was operating under the ridiculous notion that she should be able to broadcast her family on national TV 'Truman Show' style for a paycheck, but in public she was strictly a private citizen. As per usual, she wanted it both ways. Being the hateful soul that she is she wasn't capable of simply saying "I'm sorry, I'm having some special girl time with my twins and I'm unable to sign an autograph (take a picture, etc.)right now. Thanks so much for supporting the show, Jon and I really appreciate it!" Noooooooo.... instead she would make a huge scene, loudly chastising the person for approaching her, telling them she is a private person and she and her daughters have the right to shop in privacy like every one else.... blah, blah. One person who recognized them said hello to Kate and Mady and Kate flipped. The person said Mady looked terrified and she felt horrible for the distress she caused the girl. These stories are legendary and got around quickly. Therefore, pretty much no one acknowleges Kate's exsistence when she is out, no one will dare give her the satisfaction. My relative says Kate tries to make quite a bit of eye contact with people when she's out (especially with men), almost as if she is trying to engage the person to gush and say OMG! Kate Gosselin! But no one falls for it.

Tami, ignoring Kate and pretending she doesn't exsist probably pains her much, much more than if someone would walk up to her and give her a piece of their mind. Kate the "private citizen" was all but wearing streetwalker outfits to Target by the end of last summer in an effort to stand out and command attention. She wants attention so she can have an excuse to bitch and moan about the attention. The locals have her number and refuse to feed her narcissisim.

N.E. Psychologist said...

Early on it was stated that no one in the family could take any pictures without tlc's permission. I'd be willing to bet that that has not changed.
Even if that is not the case, kate would NEVER take a chance on giving her children a camera. Who knows what they might catch on film?

Lillie Mae Acres said...

I hate hearing/reading how "Kate has or has not forgiven Jon". FORGIVEN him? For what? That was no marriage!!!

In my opinion, he didn't break any more marriage vows than she did. ALL vows are to be kept, not just certain ones.

Did she ever once honor him, respect him, stand by him through thick and thin, sickness and health?

NOPE, she disrespected him on camera so who knows what really went on when they weren't on TV? I mean, honestly sometimes I just thought it would be hilarious if he slapped her so hard and layed her out on the floor!

She did not honor him as her husband and the head of the household. She took that role as head of the household and refused to hear or even think about other opinions and ideas.

She has changed so much...from the mommy in regular nice neat clothes to HOOKER attire, which is proof positive that she was fake from the beginning.

Jon didn't RUN from that marriage fast enough in my opinion, too bad he wasn't smart enough to run before the 2nd set of kids.

If I ever seen her TROMPING in her hooker heels in person, I think I'd stick my foot out and trip her! Why is she still on TV?

Jane in CA said:
I am one of those who does not believe Kate loves her own children, or that she ever really did. She loved the idea of having multiples, of the fame and benefits it would bring to her. She loved them as accessories when they were still small enough to place where she wanted at will and couldn't talk back.
**************

I have always believed this and still do. The way she treats her children constitutes abuse. It is unfortunate that the Commonwealth of PA doesn't see it that way.

Gimme Gimme said...

I think Cara had a camera in New York or someplace. I think they showed some of the video she did and it looked good. Or did I just make that up? Anybody else remember that? They used to have access to a phone/camera but I guess that stopped when he said in an interview that Mady called him every day. I can feature the kids being stuck there with absolutely no way to communicate with the outside world, particularly since she won't let the nanny talk to Jon when she is away and can't imagine she would let the kids do so either, on the supposed premise that he might tell but most likely that she is being secretive.

Jane in CA said...

Tami, I understand your feelings about wishing you could give Kate a piece of your mind. You say, "if something makes you feel good, then it's not a waste." However, sometimes doing things simply for our own pleasure is actually not such a good idea. We have only to look at Kate's behavior to see that. She does nothing except what makes her feel good.

What sometimes is hard to understand is that Kate isn't like most people. She doesn't feel ashamed of her choices, nor does she ever (and I mean EVER) feel she has done something wrong.

If you or someone else were to approach and start yelling at her, or telling her off, she would think that person was crazy, rude, unbalanced, and not worth paying a shred of attention to. The person who tried to tell her off would probably have the police called on them, and have to answer a few questions. Not worth it.

And Kate would be getting attention, which she craves. The worst thing that could happen to Kate Gosselin is for people to simply give her a blank stare and then look/walk away with out a word. When finally she runs out of money to pay someone to take her picture in public, when no sites publish stories about her, when no networks want to film her in any capacity -- she will not know what to do with herself. She'll probably lose it - having lots of attention is what she thrives on.

I think that's why people would say trying to tell her off in public is not going to give the result one might want or desire.

Drake said...

Leigh Ann said, "They had video cameras at the Statue of Liberty and on the ferry ride back were interviewing their brothers and sisters about what they saw."

My guess is that somebody in the production company decided to provide the kids with cameras thinking the editor might be able to incorporate some of their footage into the show. If so, the cameras would have been taken away from the kids after they finished their 'interviews.'

Daughter? Privacy? Jon and Kate
allowed their children to be filmed while using a potty chair, washing in the bath and undressing. Nothing can protect them from that footage, its all out there on reruns and dvds forever. What were they thinking and why is this still going on?

tara said...

After reading the posters comment. I want to share this. My friend worked in a place where real A listers stars would come on a regular basis. All were normal polite people. Never expected services better than regular people, waited in line, were understanding and patient if operations didnt go smoothly and there was a short delay. Friend worked there for a few years and saw the same people very regularly. The children of those stars were always active but extremely well behaved, no tantrums, no touching, no wondering off in this public place.
They mixed with regular everyday people and would give a nod and smile and go about their way.

"New Here" Thank you so much for the link to the Reading Eagle! I had never read those articles before.

What I wondered, was if the Gosselins ever paid the state back for the nursing care? Did they reimburse the Easter Seals? Did they give any money to Calvary Bible Fellowship Church, Lower Heidelberg Township for all the money each entity spent to help this family? I wonder if the church, easter seals and state helped them so Kate could have a constant supply of Hair weaves, fake nails, and fake tans? Somehow I don't think so.

I think that "ISN'T FAIR"! Kate, pay back what you owe your neighbors and the citizens of PA. You have enough money to waste it on shopping every single day...give it back! She should also have to give the Gosselin family back the inheritance that she took from Jon. Because it "isn't fair"!

Hey, what happened to this Reading Eagle mentioned: "Kate’s lifelong friend, Marsha K. Kelley of Palmyra"???!

Boy did she get rid of this friend fast!

Which makes me think that her PR people must give some kind of bonus to the bloggers and media outlets who comment how fantastic her body looks. I mean, she looks decent (with the help of plastic surgery), but the belly button does look strange, and she does have that tree trunk shape. When you see Halle Berry in a bikini or Jennifer Aniston, naturally a blogger or ROL-type site could compliment them without thinking. But Kate? She in a bikini is just nothing special, and it would have to be part of a well-planned PR agenda to elicit all these "fantastic body" comments.

not hot, no way said...

Kate in a bikini is just plain weird. She has a weird, weird body. My daughter was flipping thru a magazine and said 'Ewwwww' when she saw that picture of her in the bikini top and khaki shorts shopping in Australia. She is oddly shaped and needs to cover up that belly. It is deformed, understandably, from having those tups. The boobs are now facing east and west and she is not the hottie that ROL says she is. And this is after all that lipo. The woman is dreaming if she thinks she will ever desireable. One cannot lay down with an arm over one's head and belly sucked in with heavy spraytanning and body makeup all the time. She needs to hang up trying to be a sexpot. It ain't ever gonna happen. The more she covers up, the better she looks. Now if she would just put a bag over that head of hers....

Tami said...

She is really showing skin and it is inappropriate to wear things like that in public in a shop with your small children.

but, that is kate. She poses like Mae West in that pool lounge chair for PurseBoy's pap-gate next to her older daughter and younger children
**********
She dresses like women who were overweight for a long time and then lose lots of weight. Those women often tend to try to push the envelope on showing off. You could see a dramatic shift when she went to get the dogs and insisted on wearing high heels. Prior to that she didn't dress that way so it was just stupid to go out in a muddy farm in heels. It is such a desperate ploy. I wonder when she will finally get over it---get over the fact that she had lots of procedures and now looks like another person and not the old Katie. Maybe she will finally look in the mirror and see herself for what she is and have a little shame!

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

For those who wonder how we, locals, do not respond to Kate, well I can answer that. She will ignore you. She will throw a signed photo, 3x5 black and white stamped photos at you. She does not want to hear your compliments or if you raise your voice and insist she answer you, well, you will have her AA bodyguard or the police all around you. Things like that, seeing her, are not new to us.

Yes, some people use cell phones to take pictures, but I honestly don't know why. I don't think she is attractive nor is she approachable.

If you feel a need to say some terrible things to her, write her a n email and send it to Moma Baby.

She wants to blame Jon for whatever else she probably can't blame her husband for! Another sickie.

We just want a friendly shopping area, friendly people who are use to nodding and acknowledging each other. Yes, it use to be that way all the time.

I still say Kate never met Steve's parents. Never. I do not know what Steve's game is about, but he is raking in the money. So do what they want you do do, ignore her and her kids.

Amy too said...

If Kate's show in Australia is anything like the last episodes (NY, NC) then we are going to see Kate screaming, dragging, tired children around the other part of the world when we were celebrating Christmas & New Years.

But it will be another show with Kate screaming and yelling.

What will E True Story? I would imagine if Eric Roberts and other people who have given interviews about Kate than, it will be very interesting, don't you? and if friends and family told the truth, then it is going to be a bomb for Kate, just like eerything else is.

As Joan Rivers said, "she should go home and memorize her kids name instread of call them numbers. lol lol.

Leigh Ann said...

Kate should go on What Not to Wear. She likes being on TV and could use the help.

Back in ole days when Jon and Kate were doing the talk show circuit, Kate spoke of them adopting a child. Did they really want a 9th child. If this was this a PR strategy by TLC why did they allow themselves to be used like puppets, and say such things in front of the other children on tv

I guess that I'm not exactly a "local" but I live about 50 miles away, my late husband's parents were "Pennsylvania Dutch" (German settler) from the area, have a son living in the general area, my daughters attended Kutztown U. and I visit the area often.
I totally support your way of thinking in regards to K8 G. To confront her publicly would be bringing you DOWN to her level. There are some of us out here who do not hate her nor do we like her. Indifference to her is more fitting. I/we do read about madcap K8 as we find her to be a real/reality dumbazz, a train wreck waiting to happen and wonder who she will blame when it happens.

susan said...

Sammyquestions:

I live in Pa. and while my kids all went to public school - I find it very strange that the kids are allowed to be out of school for such a long period of time. Even if they say this is an educational trip our public school only allows a week with permission of the principal and the teachers actually assign school work to be completed by the time they get back.

***********
There was speculation that they wanted to adopt a child from Korea, but obviously nothing came of it.

They did almost adopt a child after the twins were born, however. When she was still working at the hospital in L&D a biracial infant of a teenage girl named Jamie became available to adopt. For an undisclosed reason they decided not to go forward and instead underwent further IUI treatment and the tups were born.

WonderButton said...

I live in the Philly suburbs main line, and travel out to Amish World (Lancaster Co) every now and then. If I ever ran into Kate, I'd love to pretend I have no idea who she is. If we were next to each other in line in a store, I would talk to her, though. I'd say "Excuse me". And then when she got all puffed up, thinking I'm going to bask in her "celebrity" or say "Aren't you Kate?" I'd deflate her and just ask "Do you know what time it is?" HAH! And if she gave me one of those stupid pictures, I'd say "Oh, what's this?" Probably would accept it, and then discard it in full view of her.

Sharla said...

Enough, enough, enough with the discussion about whether someone should speak to Kate out in public or not. Those of us who hopefully will never have that problem, don't need to try to tell those who live with it regularly how to behave or what to think about. Please move on.

By the way, your friendly blog owner is sick today and likely to be short on patience.

Kat said...

I remember watching the 3rd birthday party episode, it was at their home very ordinary and Kate put on a clown wig I remember thinking what a narcissist she must be to clearly want the attention on her instead of her children. She just gets worse and worse, my heart goes out for those poor children

Ohio Buckeye said...

Why did Dr. Glassman place K8G's umbilicus up so high when performing her abdominosplasty??? Looks really weird and calls attention to K8G's lack of even a pretense of a womanly waist.

Sharla said...

Thanks for the good wishes. I think it's simply a passing bug.

E towner said...

Yes, Cara had a camera on the train to NY and the boat ride to the Statue of Liberty, remember Kate had the whole lollipop, giving Joel a broken one, well everyone was posing for Cara and her camera, on the train, on the boat. Then her camera disappeared, where? I would imagine her mother took it from her. After all, Kate has to control all of her children, at all times. But, yep, Cara had the camera for those brief times. Never saw it again. Making brief memories, Huh?

As for you Sharla, get well, we need you mods to be well by the time that E true Hollywood appears and we all go freaking nuts if one good word is said about our Katie.

Thanks for telling people to get off the subject of "when you see her why don't you say something"...she is a mean person, not a nice, polite person. Ever see those walks to the 4th of July parade with 6 3 yr olds, making them walk the whole mile or so? Insisting that they walk and hold onto that ring holder? Maybe they had the twins holding onto it also.

Well, we were sitting a bit down the sidewalk and when my little girl caught too much candy that was thrown by the clowns in the parade, they walked over and asked, 'Mr. Gosselin, can we give this candy to your children". They were interrupted immediately by that witch who said, "you have something to say about my children, you talk to me" and at that point I got up and walked over and said what is wrong? No answer, then Jon said, "thanks but we have enough candy, she wouldn't look at me, sat on her fat ass and looked away from me"

Now, if she had said one word to my kids, while I was there, I would have knocked her through the house she was sitting in front of. Big cow that she is.

In a bikini she looks like Sponge Bob from the back when she runs and tries to pass her kids on a beach, no legs, just short shins from the knee down, honestly. She is nothing to look at.

Hope you post this to settle everything re: talking to the witch.I've always read this, but never posted before. So thx.

I've wondered the same thing. Could there be a medical issue? A structural one? Or is Dr. Glassman not the very best plastic surgeon in the Northeast?

Of course, he may have asked Kate if she cared about a bikini (which didn't seem to at the time), or warned her that with the (totally understandable!!!) distortion of her abdomen, he wouldn't be able to make her bikini-worthy.

Honestly, I can't begrudge Kate the tummy-tuck. She really did have a lot of stretched-out skin and muscle; it must have been uncomfortable as well as depressing.

That said, her need to create this fake overachievement (I had sextuplets, and now I am in a bikini on the cover of People!) is just part of this whole pathological web of illusions she has woven around herself and her kids.

Well said, Dustilies. As with all addicts, K8G's addiction (to attention, fame, fortune) has caused a complete unravel of her life.

Most tragically, when she ran herself off the track, she took 8 kids along for the ride.

CakeIsGreat said...

I am optimistic about this True Hollywood Story. Never thought I would tune into something involving Kate again, but my curiosity is peaked. If someone like Werny is going to be on, it might be a True story after all. She has her number. Not sure who else will be on except for that babysitter, but at least one person won't be giving a View-esque praise fest of K8. Has anyone made the decision whether or not you're gonna watch?

While I wouldn't put it passed K8 at all to behave that way towards Steves parents I am having trouble believing that story on the grounds that I don't get how that would get out. It took supposedly place in their home, not a public place that observers could have seen. I don't think Steve would let it leak and risk the paycheck he seems to put above all else. All I do know is that I have never, ever heard a positive story being leaked of Kate. Never her doing something nice, or having a great encounter with a fan. Real celebrities have stories about giving generous tips and/or helping someone in need, spending time with charities, ect. It completely baffles me how people can still think positively of her when she hasn't done anything positive.

E True Hollywood does shows about celebrity murderers, con artists, brothers that murder their parents, OJ Simpson. Please let's not get our panties in an uproar yet; unless, they edit it to make her look like the mother of God, then the crap hits the fan, for sure.

Her grifting days have got to be a part of this, very much so.

Oh yeah E towner, Katan does look like sponge bob from the back in her bikini running down the beach to out run her kids. What shank.

Memories of NY said...

Drake, the camera Cara had was her camera which Kate said that Cara was interested in filming, so they bought it for her to film "memories" but Kate took it from her when the show was filming. Cara has restricted use, which I think would be appropriate during filming and TLC's filming rights. But it was a gift to Cara from Kate.

Amy too said...

Brummy Girl.

Well you are so rightish. I was thinking the same thing myself. How she wanted the divorish but she did not have the brain cells to think a head. She thought Jon couldn't destroy her.

Jon has destroyed her in his own way whether leaking articles or the way she abuses the kids, the expulsionish thing. Yep, she destroyed herself but he helped a little.

I mean can't give him all the credit but she should never had bad mouthed Tony during DWTS, that was the end of Pretending to be Mommy and the realish Kate the slut came outish.

Amy too said...

We can't believe she met Steve's parents, can we? Why would she?

After all she went there with her 8 kids to film; he was the bodyguard, no reason she should meet his parents.

Amy said, After all she went there with her 8 kids to film; he was the bodyguard, no reason she should meet his parents.

1. He's not a bodyguard.
2. She claimed that she and Steve (and Gina) are all close friends. It's possible she would want to meet his parents, for several reasons.
3. He is her employee. If she wanted to meet his parents, who is he to say no? He is at her beck and call.

"Think they TLC like to leak things to cause articles to be written on the media sites, don't you all?"

"Leak" implies that the meeting actually happened and sombody contacted the media. "Plant" implies that it was a publicity stunt.

@@@@@

I'm not sure I understand this. How did her appearance on DWTS and her relationship with Tony make Kate, the slut, come out?
We saw Kate behaving badly in the rehearsals, Tony left at one point, Kate resorted to her crocodile tears, but a slut? what point was this?

If anything came out during DWTS, it was a confirmation of her narcissism and her inflated ego. She thought she was going to win, and Carrie Ann went on record (during an interview) that Kate had no self-awareness.

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

K8G has already established that she does not need us as an excuse for plastic surgery. She headed down that path long before anyone here made comments about her body. K8G has her OWN narcissistic agenda and does not care one twit what anyone else thinks, says, or does.

Classic, Best in Show Narcissist that she is, personally, I won't be surprised at all if her next surgery is to somehow implant a mirror so that she can admire her own reflection 24/7x365. Then whine about the sun's glare from the implanted mirror - another round of 'poor, poor me....' coming up.

Huge sigh in Pa said...

Something I haven't seen here, and I am sorry if I missed it, one of the first interviews or episodes and was a huge red flag for me:

Does anyone else remember Kate talking about going to the fertility doctor's, on her own for treatments, without Jon's approval, that failed. It was in August. Kate spoke of/to Jon being right and that she should have waited. She just wanted more babies! Even though they couldn't afford them and her husband wasn't on board. She wanted more babies. It was very uncomfortable to watch and it was very obvious who was plotting the HOM. October they tried again and her plan came together. HOM!

It was the same interview, that she repeatedly asked Jon if he was still mad at her, for going forward with the treatments although he had reservations.

Being from PA, I thought this might have been interesting, but at that point I realized that this wasn't something that "just happened". This was somethig that Kate "made" happen for all the wrong reasons. And the children are payng the price for her greed and need for attention.

keep your clothes on said...

In defense of dr glassman and the misplaced belly button, did you see what he had to work with?? She had yards of stretched out skin, her anatomy was all deformed and out of whack, no surprise given how large she got with the tups. In light of what she looked like before the tummy tuck, I think he did a good job. That doesn't mean she looks good in a bikini, though, and Kate doesn't get that. I was rooting for her when she got that tummy tuck. Who couldve guessed she would have spent all that money she's been begging for on all those subsequent procedures? No wonder the kids need to keep filming.

I went and saw the picture of the kids where the poster said that they had bags under their eyes.

I couldn't believe how sad, tired, exhausted and drained those poor children looked.

Cara, bless her heart was folding her arms, her face looked swollen, bags under her eyes, like what you look like when you are crying over something that is really sad.

On this AU/NZ trip they must of missed their dad terribly.

You can see it in their faces and body language.

Amy too said...

Know what I really think about Kate and Steve and his parents?

I think it never happened. But TLC leaked the item as a plant, hint, hint and she gave him a tiffany frame with picture of her precious multiples? We know it didn't happen because she doesnot spend money on anyone but herself.

Anonymous said...

Just saw some of those youtube videos you talk about. One had Aaden holding onto Collin's hair and yanking his head back and forth and he wouldn't let go and he wouldn't stop and no one stepped in, they just kept filming. So sad, also Collin did not cry, just let Aaden fling his head back and forth. Wow.

The KJ+8 and K+8 are like Agatha Christie' Ten Little Indians, where everyone disappears one by one, like Carla, what happen to Carla too?

Good one Buckeye, love it!

Huge sigh in Pa said...
Something I haven't seen here, and I am sorry if I missed it, one of the first interviews or episodes and was a huge red flag for me:

Does anyone else remember Kate talking about going to the fertility doctor's, on her own for treatments, without Jon's approval, that failed. It was in August. Kate spoke of/to Jon being right and that she should have waited. She just wanted more babies! Even though they couldn't afford them and her husband wasn't on board.
____________________________

That one bothered me a great deal. I mean doesn't the fertility doctor prefer it if both husband & wife are on board with the procedure, oh, what am I talking about, it's k8, she probably lied to the doctor about Jon's part or opinion in all of it. It was all orchestrated by the nasty little grifter. Unfortunately she has the fatal flaw all narcissists have, they think of others as objects that can be controlled at their whim. Some can be, but there are always those who refuse to be controlled & become even more determined to make their voices heard.

One day these kids will grow up & learn why they were really brought into this world, I hope they're able to deal with it, get past it & have good lives in spite of having such a detrimental millstone as k8.

Well, if you don't want to give ratings for this Kate: E! story, watch it later. Only the first time it's on is when the ratings count. If, I do watch it it will be later. If it gets good ratings, TLC will be smiling, thinking that Kate is still marketable, I won't give TLC that satisfaction.

Yes, what is up with that? Even if Kate was lying, wouldn't the doc feel ethically obligated to be sure that both parents were prepared for the pregnancy and possible HOMs? When a couple adopts kids, part of the homestudy process is separate interviews with the prospective parents, so the Social Worker can probe into any reluctance or misgivings one partner might have.

Are fertility clinics completely without a creed of best practices? I mean, even if gov't regulations are missing, isn't there some association that accredits such clinics and gives them an extra credential?

Where and how Jon's, er contribution, was made is a bit confusing in this scenario. Didn't she/they use a different clinic the second time, so there would have been anything stored? or maybe it was the same doctor both times and he had leftovers in the freezer?

Ok, KATE CAUGHT RED-HANDED! There are pics of Kate at Infdaily, today, buying a bottle of Sake $11.99 a bottle. The article title: "First pics: Kate Gosselin drowns her problems in Organic Sake" If Chris is taking pics, and he is hired by TLC, this will not sit good with PR. One of the sentences in the article : is: Kate can spend money on liquor, and she has 8 kids to feed. And it looks like she has 2 phones now. And NO COAT ON AGAIN! It's 35 out!Must be going to drink Sake to keep warm. In the pics she looks surprised that she was caught in the liquor store and she charged it.

Is she also parked again in a no parking area? Why doesn't anyone ticket this person for parking in a fire zone?

fidosmommy said...

I just looked at the Sake pictures.
It looks to me like that's not a normal purchase for her, and she needed help to make her selection.
My guess is that they are having a Japanese meal (Kate and ? and maybe the kids) and she needed the sake for the ambiance. Maybe you cook with sake like you cook with
other liquors - bourbon, wine, etc. - in Japanese cuisine. As a tee-totaler myself, I wouldn't know for sure.

Yes. I have pondered this too, but have been cut short when doing my "pondering" in print..... I have my own theories, but will not contribute them to the pool of rumors and false stories.

I don't think the object in Khate's other hand is another phone. It looks like an automatic door lock thingy or an automatic car starter to me.

Yeah, you can cook with Sake. But Kate COOK!? More like drinking it to get warm or drunk. She had no coat on it was 35 out.

Ampersmom, your right she is parked in the Fire lane. I hope one day when she does that, a cop is there giving her a ticket. I wonder how many tickets she already has gotten? I also guess, at sometime in the very near future, she will be running off to NYC for her hair, the roots are showing.

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

Re: the sake, I think Kate was looking on Radaronline today and saw the clip of Jessica Simpson leaving a bar very drunk. A reporter asked her if she had too much sake and bam. Kate had to get out there and get herself some. She's a stah don't you know???? If Jessica is drinking it, then Kate has to stay current. heh heh heh. Only problem is that Jessica looked totally hammered and pretty close to yakking. You can bet the bf had to pull over a couple of times.....

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

One more thing about Kate's liquor store purchase. How bloody typical that she would cheap out like that. Kate the millionaire buying a cheap bottle of booze for $11.99. I have always said she was a skinflint. Always pinching her pennies and saving her dollars. I bet if there was a coupon for it she would be using it. Probably having Jamie over for a cheap drunk night. How come Chris never sees her in the liquor store buying her stuff? She probably makes home brew and has a huge vat in the basement. I am personally of the opinion Kate is a drinker. She is like alot of drunks. They hide it well. And they lie well. Adept at deception. She is careful to have one glass of wine in Australia when we know she either had 3 or 4 before the restaurant or chugged a bottle after dinner in her room. That's what drunks do. It's a bitch isn't it Kate...... trying to maintain your motherly image when you just want to pound back a few in public like most people can.

Hi there- I'm a lurker but haven't been around for a while. And, even though I'm an Australian who has a pretty good grasp of what's going on, I had NO IDEA that she had been in the country. Reading here is the first vie heard of it. It certainly wasn't covered much in the press, if at all!

And the pictures inside the store?

I agree, kate cook? Is she going to marinate some Kobe beef and make steaks for her and PurseBoy?

There's some photos of Jon out and about with Cara. In the one with Cara - they're holding hands so tightly and are walking very close together. It's so sweet and so different from Kate's parenting. I'm so sad for these kids - they desperately need Jon's style of parenting -

Someone posted recently about how fast kate got rid of her longtime friend, Marsha K. Kelly of Palmyra.

All I did was just google the name and she does VHS to DVD transfer. She has her own company.

I thought about kate wanting memories of the kids. I wonder if someone in editing offered to do it for kate and that maybe the reason why kate dumped her.

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

Does anyone know the answer to this? I have always wondered how it was that Kate got 3 boys and 3 girls. Can that be planned somehow when you have 6 kids at once? Or was it just a fluke she got 3 of each.

The pap or the Fire Lane/No Parking Zone?
Actually, I was refering to the paparazzi. Those shots of her getting out parked ON the Fire Lane/No Parking Area were way to close to a pap. This pap would of had to been a few feet away. Because at the angle that person had to be on the sidewalk going into the store.

She was parked in a fire lane, again!

And, what I said about maybe the kids are with Jon, I was being snarky. I know he gets them on the weekends. I guess kate wants a nice candlelight dinner with Purseboy and a bottle of Momokawa Organic Sake all for herself.

)))))))))))))))))

So if the kids are with Jon on weekends, that means they are at home now. It's kind of hard to have a nice candlelight dinner with a man if the kids are at home, isn't it? No hand-holding over the dinner table. I do believe that if she were, in fact, planning a dinner with Steve, she would not be serving a $12 bottle of Sake, but rather a fine imported wine.

"Those shots of her getting out parked ON the Fire Lane/No Parking Area were way to close to a pap. This pap would of had to been a few feet away. Because at the angle that person had to be on the sidewalk going into the store."

((((((((((((((((((((

Paps frequently use tele-photo lenses. But I doubt if that was the case here. He could have easily pulled up in back of her or parked in a close-by parking space. He wouldn't have had to walk that far. We've seen pictures of Chris (if that's who it was) walking side by side with her, talking to her, while taking photos. He's taken photos of her in the Target parking lot, coming out of the salon, etc. He always appears to be only a few feet away from her.

@@@@@@@@@@

She parked in the fire lane. The car was heated. She had to walk how many feet -- just a couple, to get inside the store. The store is heated. Maybe her coat is just too bulky and she doesn't wear it to drive. It happens.
If I'm going to be running errands and be outside in this weather for an extended length of time, I'll wear a coat. If I'm going to the mall, however, I'll park as near to an entrance as I can, leaving my coat inside the car, and making a mad dash to get inside the mall. It's much more comfortable shopping that way, especially when the store are warm.
Is it possible that's what she does?

Kartie Dearest said...

I posted this at the 15 min. site...


UGH! I don't want to have anything in common with Kartie but UGH... I have to admit the Momokawa Ginjo brand is probably one of the best affordable grocery store sake brand there is. It's really smooth and great either hot or cold, especially the junmai. This is not a cooking rice wine, it's a drinking rice wine.

It is strong stuff so you have to pour it in a small sake cup and sip it to appreciate the flavor. The bottle size she bought is appropriate for a party-size group but I dont think she's heading to a party anytime soon (unless it's a party for 1).

If she bought that for herself.. dayum woman!!There's a term in Japan called "Kitchen Drinker" to define those who drink in their kitchen alone and depressed. Need I say more...

Let me add that I'm NOT a heavy drinker--- my drinking limit is quite laughable actually (1/2 a beer and done) but I do enjoy smooth tasting sake with sushi or at a party.

I think parking in the fire zone for photo-op is a bigger violation than purchasing the liquor, but if she's drinking that alone every night, I hope it's after the kids are asleep.

Citizen's arrest said...

hot blooded, that may be what she does, but parking in the fire lane is wrong no matter what. It doesn't matter if it's cold, hot, raining, snowing, whatever. The bitch needs to park where she isn't endangering lives and put on a coat if she doesn't want to get chilled to the bone

Jus Plain Lazy said...

I parked in a fire lane once and a gorgeous motorcycle cop in high top boots came out of nowhere and knocked on my window - what are you doing? What if there was a fire? No ticket but he was furious. I respected his wishes and didn't do it again.

Khate would probably make the argument that she is so famous she can't walk that far, but in fact we all know she is just plain lazy.

Kat said...

Can someone explain to me why "sheeple" people claim anybody who says Kate is a bad parent is only jealous of her? Do these people not see the awful things she does? I for one am not jealous, just concerned for these children. I watched a 5 min. clip of the New York trip when they were on the bus, which was disturbing. Kids were falling asleep and her answer was ice cream and candy to give them a sugar rush and stay awake, she ran thru the streets of NY in heels with camera crew following but as she is doing this where was her "bodyguard" which in my opinion would be the time she might need one, when she gets back to the bus she is freaking out about the dripping/melting ice cream and gives a cone to one of the boys who didnt take it fast enough for Kate and she jabs his shoulder to take it and sit down, then tucks a paper towel into his shirt telling him "dont worry about what I'm doing (to you) eat. I had to turn it off after that. Sheeple, pay attention your beloved Kate is a monster! I wish you would show that much loyality to those children

Maybe the alcohol content of the Sake will help kill some the Salmonella in K8G's still-pink-in-the-center "Special Sammynella Chicken on the Barbie".

Shoka's Understudy said...
If Chris is taking the pictures, and she knows this, then why is she surprised at the register?
-------------
I haven't seen the pictures but my guess would be she's hamming it up for the camera as pictures with her looking surprised/emotive are more marketable. Or she's not acting at all, but just reacting to a situation in which she actually has to pay for something out of her own pocket.

Gaby said...

Do we know if Kate went to Nana Janet's funeral? Or was she too "Hollywood" to go?

Minka's Tail said...

I just know she bought this wine because they're all going to Japan for cherry blossom season spring break. They're probably filming the little tag scene where Hideki Matsui calls her and invites them all to his homeland, and she and Jamie have some sake to celebrate.
"I didn't like the sake" she will say on the couch. "It was all ricie-ish."

No, I don't have any inside info, but I believe that the kids will never, ever be home again on a school holiday where they might see their father, and Japan is as good a place as any to take 8 young children.

WonderButton said...

That sake is 16% alcohol (32 proof). Pretty high for a wine - I'm sure it packs a punch.

There's no way she got into that store without noticing the pap. She definitely needs a ticket for the parking job. Don't you think wonton disregard of basic local laws is probably not a great trait to display when you're fighting for custody of your kids?

And how about the large pink bag? Remember when she (purseboy)used to carry two bulky purses? But she stopped doing that because she (her handlers) read the negative feedback on this blog. Hmmm.....a trip to the liquor store and the big bag is back. Wonder what she keeps in the bag?

And why bring the big van? Where's the landcruiser? In the Jon/Cara pics on inf,Jon is criticized for the mpg on his suv. I wish the media would stop applying different standards to J/K. Kate usually gets a pass, while Jon is unduely criticized. It's not right. I hope the courts are more fair.

Monster Mommy said...

Gabby, no... I don't think Kate went to Nana Janet's funeral. I'm pretty sure Jon did not attend either.

The reason I say this, is she passed during a time when things went awry in the media (good Lord, when haven't they?... We're talking about the Gosselins). Anyway, there was video on TV of a pap mentioning it to Jon, and he said "She was a great family friend and we were all so sorry to hear of her death"- or something to that effect. They were both basically just reeling from the backlash of lying to the public about their marriage, and the unraveling of the truth about a complete farce of a reality show. So public appearances were not a hot idea at that time, from what I recall. Or maybe they weren't even invited.

so sick of her said...

Kate had the big van, cause she went and pick the kids up from the school bus drop-off, yesterday, after the liquor store. The pics at ROL are from yesterday not today, cause Kate has on the same thing, and no coat on. If everyone looks at the time, todays pics were published, they are too early for kid pick-up, and Kate is wearing the SAME clothes. So, unless Kate drank the Sake and fell asleep yesterday, in her clothes, these pics are from Jan 25th not Jan 26. The idiot Taps can't even get the date right. And yes, Kate is POSING with the contain of prezels. One of the twins looks to be arguing with Kate, and the other kids, with the exception of 2 are not happy, about something. I guess Chris the pap followed Kate to the bus pick-up. The pics are too close.

Monster Mommy said...

Re: Nana Janet- here's where we were concerning Jon and Kate, at the time of her passing...

http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20312930,00.html

The show was coming to an end and the divorce was imminent. About a week following the funeral... Jon was off to Hawaii that November, for his buddy Shane Victorino's wedding (the guy they all met that plays for the Phillies). Only few months later (3 to be precise), Jon was back in Hawaii with girlfriend Morgan Christie. My, how time flies. So glad Jon is now focusing on his the best interest of his kids... he's come a long way, baby.

E-town Neighbot said...

INF has the same bus pick-up photos, posted today; story says yesterday. They are correct.

ROL screwed up again. Kids had early dismissal today (11 a.m.), winter storm warning, so there is no way the photos are from today.

She doesn't wear a jacket for anything, does she...except under the tent at the Alaska campsite where she freezes to death in 40-50 degree weather, despite wearing 19 layers.

Magic Of The Night said...

And why bring the big van? Where's the landcruiser? In the Jon/Cara pics on inf,Jon is criticized for the mpg on his suv.

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

She's not supposed to use the van -- the kid-mobile, even though it gets better gas mileage?

The "big van" gets about 25 mpg; the Land Cruiser, 13 city. So...the Dodge is more economical than the SUV!

WonderButton said...

Thanks to the above poster who pointed out that the recent inf bus stop pics (posted 1/26) and the liquor store pics (posted 1/25) were taken on the same day, as Kate is wearing the same clothes in each of them (and the same earrings, too). I didn't catch that first time around.

Upon further sluething, the pics from the liquor store weren't well-sanitized by inf. In the properties fields for the jpg files, Chris Watts is listed as owning the copyright (probably the default from his camera). Also, the pics of her emerging from the van were stamped 5:18 pm, and the ones at the checkout counter were 5:34 pm. (She was parked in that fire lane at least 15 min, probably.)

Also, the caption embedded in the file for the saki run pics is below:

"EXCLUSIVE TO INF. ALL-ROUNDER.
January 25, 2011: Kate Gosselin goes to the liquor store for a little shopping before heading to pick up her six kids from the bus stop in West Reading, Pennsylvania. Kate got some help from one of the store clerks and then picked out a little white wine and took off."

So it is mentioned that she is heading to pick up the kids.

INF posted the bus pick up pics as though they were taken today, 1/26, and they most certainly were not. And the time stamps on these were around 1 PM, and we know that's too early.

I hope the E biopic is going to mention she has one (and only one) pap-people, Chris.

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

After seeing the sight of our dear neighbor hitting up the liquor store and she got caught, I guess perhaps the other day when I thought she was acting a bit either under the influence of something was possibly right. She was acting very strange and laughing and chiding Chris.

Maybe Chris got the call that she was going to pick up the kids, but he decided to follow her?? Caught her in the liquor store?

Not that there is anything wrong with a woman, driving a meg a van that cost over $3.50 a tank of fuel to run, to buy a bottle of Saki at one's State Liquor Store, parking once again in the Fire Lane, but I believe that this lovely neighbor did not want anyone to see what she does when the camera isn't on. Not like she is a drinker or anything. Just a consumer, right? Perhaps.

We all know that the boxes of wine are bought in bulk, perhaps she just wanted a "taste" of Saka, something new she had a "taste" of in New Zealand? Perhaps.

The photos of the lovely neighbor with that big container of pretzels, holding them for several shots by Chris. Was she saying "well, children we have take out tonight for dinner"

I do believe that if she were, in fact, planning a dinner with Steve, she would not be serving a $12 bottle of Sake, but rather a fine imported wine.

Product Placement said...

I saw those pics of the after school treat - looks like product placement to me. She must be trying to get a gig - the way she was holding that container she looked like Vanna White. It's pretty bad when you start trying to pitch products throught the paps. I can just here but millions of people will see it, just you wait. I am the ratings queen - not. Either that or she must have got worried - no telling what kind of garbage they for lunch that day. Notice it didn't actually show them getting the treats. I despise that woman. Chris I hope you got a cut of that deal.

Ampersmom said...

Looking at INF pictures again...besides the Sake being placed in the bag, there appears to be a box of wine on the counter along with a couple bottles of red wine..did she buy more than the Sake and her "surprised" look is that she realized the other wines were still in view? The pictures are the ones at that counter..and why we are at it, why are there picture of Kate parking (illegally),"asking" for help, purchasing they Sake but NOT leaving the store with the Sake or anything else in tow?

WonderButton said...

OK, I take it back about the gas mileage being better on the land cruiser. Wow, that's a surprise. But I did see that the diesel version of the dodge sprinter has up to 25 mpg, whereas the gas engine is only in the teens. Regardless of which model they have (gas or diesel), the van is probably better mileage.

What does John drive? I'd like to look up the mileage on that one, too.

Tami said...

Was she saying "well, children we have take out tonight for dinner"
********
LOL. I can picture that too. Funny. What a phony placement that was. As for filming her twice in one day and pretending it's different days, they just did that recently in the Target parking lot and the bus stop! She was also in a sweater and no coat for those. It had her at the bus stop and said that she was snapped yesterday at Target. Ha..she had on the same clothes. How stupid do they think everyone is? I think Chris is contracted to take so many hours per day on whatever days of photos and then he just acts as if they are all on different days to make it look realistic. But it's not! She was "surprised" at the liquor store so the clerk could think she is a real star with real paps following her.

Tami said...

The probable reason for the sake placement pics: There will be a show where she is making an Asianish meal at home because her kids are Asianish so she needed to marinate her Korean short ribs in Japanese sake. This is just for the adults (Kate and Steve, since of course she needs a bodyguard at the table). The kids will get Chinese chow mein noodles with organicish chicken nuggets. She will hang up the idea of going to Korea since Jon is Korean and he's icky now and set her hopes on Japan. So she will of course say that Japan has always been her dream and it would be a rare treat, blah, blah, blah. And we know what comes next..spring break! Cherry blossoms!

She probably assumed fire lane means it's for hot, sexy babes like herself. I seriously don't think she'd have respect for anything like an old fire lane when she is the STAH of PA and needs to have access quickly to avoid the pesky PA paps.

Wonderful product placement by Kate picking up the kids. Do you ever see any real stars doing stuff like this? Usually you give kids snacks when you are IN the car.
Considering this is supposed to be an elite school the children attend, the girls look like ragamuffins with their hair all over the place. Both they and Kate look as if they just got out of bed.
I still love their little faces though. I always feel as if I could take them in my arms and hug them.

FandM Alumna said...

For Ampersmom who wondered "...why are there picture of Kate parking (illegally),"asking" for help, purchasing they Sake but NOT leaving the store with the Sake or anything else in tow"

Chris Watts sells the images and the buyers select what to post. So in addition to selecting a few "choice" shots to tell the story, the photo editors may have decided not to show any more ... alternatively, maybe there were no useable images of Kate leaving the store, or perhaps Chris wasn't able to get an image that's more interesting that what was selected.

It may not be any kind of conspiracy to show Kate in a better light by not running an image of her leaving the store.

Gee, I wonder if she left the van in the fire lane because the kids were in it - she hit the liquor store after picking them up. Again, time stamp on the arrival photos was around 5:15-5:20. Just a thought.

And maybe no pics on the way out because it had gotten dark by then. (around 5:30, 5:35). Since it was nice and sunny when the kids were picked up, I would have to think that she got them before the saki run. Again, just my thoughts on the timeline.

mamasan said...

Kate parked in a Fire Zone; but more serious, she had liquor and underage kids in the auto. In Penna. that is a violation, "contributing to the delinquency of a minor[s]." No joke. Bottle or can does not need to be open.

Ampersmom said...

For FandM Alumna ...I wondered why no pictures of Kate leaving because I had read where some were wondering if the pictures of Kate buying Sake are just staged for PR purposes, to stir up these discussions. Some even wonder if Kate's surprised look was actually staged by her.

What is curious though is what are those other products on the counter by the register. I have been known to get a bottle of wine, so not judging the purchase. I just don't remember seeing that many products just left at the register...those are not normal impulse buys.

WonderButton said...

Final 2 cents on the saki run - IF the kids were in the van (we have no proof), leaving the kids in a vehicle unattended (legal or not) is just plain dangerous.

I'm not aware of any PA laws banning having unopened alcohol in a vehicle with minors, as long as the driver is 21+. Opened containers are a no-no, and ANY alcohol with ALL minors in the vehicle is also a no-no.

And after reviewing the photos, nothing on the checkout counter struck me as odd, just the usual promo items that you'd find in any state store.

No Worry, Beef Curry said...

Re; Sake-Gate...

Kate's probably just making a desperate attempt to market another product (in which she in turn will get a lifetime supply for FREE), or land an endorsement gig.

Kate can't even say 'Momokawa Organic Junmai Ginjo'... let alone sell it. If she's such a stinking neat freak-- she should try pimping Kirby Vacuums for cash, instead of her own children.

Brummy,

I too have often wondered why the kids are always so messy looking. I thought their school required uniforms but we have seen them in many different outfits. I also have wondered if we always see pics only on gym days when they might be allowed more casual outfits. I think it is time for Kate to invest in an iron. Although I try not to comment on her appearance I just have to say something about her hair. When she had that very short hair with the spikes in the back I wasn't really fond of it. I will admit, however, that at least it was always consistent and she always looked like she had just come from a salon. Ever since she had those extensions done her hair is awful looking. Remember when we heard about how thick her hair was - not anymore! I don't think her hair ever looks nice - always reminds me of the 60s-70s when gals tried growing in their shag haircuts.

INF reports that she stopped at the liquor store BEFORE picking up the kids.

"Kate parked in a Fire Zone; but more serious, she had liquor and underage kids in the auto. In Penna. that is a violation, "contributing to the delinquency of a minor[s]." No joke. Bottle or can does not need to be open."

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

Where does that come from? Could you please post a link to the PA code regarding this, as well as the penalty? I've never heard of such a law. In PA, it is against the law to have an open bottle of wine or beer in the car (driver and passenger).

My neighbor, a PA cop, was out shoveling his snow a bit ago, and I just asked him. He looked at me like I was nuts. He said that there is no such law. In addition, I called the state liquor store, and was told that there is no law that you cannot have an unopened bottle in a car in which there are minors present.
If this is a new ruling, please provide the PA liquor law on this.

Just because something is reported by a tabloid website (or Kate's PR team) doesn't mean it's true.

Yes indeed! The ol' shag growout!

We have Ted Gibson to thank for this awful new look. He talked Kate into it. It seems to be one of his signature looks - bangs hanging long over one eye and the
client having to keep flipping her head to see where she's going, the rest of the hair just hanging in
random lengths. It's possible to look cute on a 20 year old, but it's simply awful on Kate. But you can't tell Ted Gibson anything
because he fancies himself a hair fashion expert who knows "the look". And gets paid outrageous amounts to display his style on clients' heads. Bleah.

I wonder if Kate, as a 50 year old, will look back on her Teddy-do the same way we 1960's gals look back on that Jane Fonda Shag.

Whether Kate bought the Saki, threw it in her big purse, got a box of wine and whatever else, like the pretzels are sometimes sold at Liquor Stores .The salesman probably put it all in a cardboard box, helped put it in the van and Chris was only allowed to take photos of her in the store, cause he didn't get photos of her entering/leaving the store, did he?

The Pa Motor Vehicle Codes does not support OPEN containers of alcohol in a vehicle whether moving or not moving.

Otherwise, being over 21, unopened liquor/beer/wine can be transported when you have children in the vehicle.

How else would you get the products home?

As to when Chris took the photos and if our dear Katie was "acting" for the shots to "again, gain more publicity, everything makes the news" we don't know, but I will bet that she and Chris split the money he receives for the photos.

Why? Because she allows only so many pictures at certain points/places but you don't see her driving up to her driveway, you don't see her leaving her driveway.You do not see her when she doesn't want to be seen, like going out to dinner, which I know she does.

Chris & Kate have something prearranged so that she will pose for him in her makeup/hair done, he gets the photos of her looking surprised; but, notice the kids never look surprised when they see Chris after getting off the school bus.

What I don't like is that photographs are taken of other children, not Gosselins, being photographed. That would call for the school to act to prevent that. I would not like seeing my child on the web as she or he gets off of the school bus.

Soon we will see photos of John, Ellen and the kids roller skating as that has been reported. Yes, the world of the Gosselins obtaining publicity. It doesn't end.

Personally, I look forward to E true story and see if it is a true story.

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

LOL! Exactly! That what the employee at the liquor store and I were laughing about. If that were a PA law (no unopened bottles with minors in the car), if I were out running errands and stopped by the store with a 16-year-old in the car, I'd have to take him/her home first and then go back for a bottle of wine.

"What I don't like is that photographs are taken of other children, not Gosselins, being photographed. That would call for the school to act to prevent that. I would not like seeing my child on the web as she or he gets off of the school bus."

I seldom check out the school bus photos - nothing interesting about them. Have other kids recently been photographed at the bus? Do you have a link?

"Ever since she had those extensions done her hair is awful looking."

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

Fido: You know what really makes it look bad? The color. She's not an all-blonde chick. It doesn't work. She needs highlights and low lights and more brown in her hair. Her color shows every scissors mark and it looks like straw. She looked so much younger, fresher, with that short blonde-on-brown pixish cut with the wispy bangs."

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

"I thought their school required uniforms but we have seen them in many different outfits. I also have wondered if we always see pics only on gym days when they might be allowed more casual outfits"

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

The outfits we've seen them in are variations of the school uniform, all permitted under the dress code. Those are not gym outfits (only regulation gym shorts are worn for PE).

LS kids wear khaki pants or shorts, white polo shirts (girls and boys) and girls may wear the plaid school jumper, although not too many do because of playing outside in the winter. Slacks are just more appropriate. There are several variations in the uniform, such as the school sweatshirt, long or short sleeved shirts, etc.
Upper School students are finally free of uniforms!

Amy2 said...

This site is reporting Jon and Ellen took the kids skating. Positive article about Jon being patient with the children while he taught them to roller skate. http://celebs.gather.com/viewArticle.action?articleId=281474978991701

So what is reported is that Kate went to a liquor store.

I wonder if Kate is upset that her press isn't as positive as Jon's.

LancNative said...

Oops...forgot to mention about the school uniforms. If we've seen them in jeans (or other attire) it's because there is an LS "dress down day" that is held on a regular basis, which would explain their being out of uniform when a particular photo was taken.

I didn't think Ms. Kreider could get any more boring. I was wrong.
Going to the liquor store? BORING!
She already goes to Target and they sell a decent box'o wine.
PIcking up kids from bus? EXTRA BORING!

so sick of her said...

Yeah! for Jon. Glad he got to spend time with the kids. According to the articles I've read, no pics were taken. I hope this is true. It was reported, by who? maybe someone who attended the party or someone who works at the place or another customer. But, Jon & Ellen and all 8 kids had a good time. I'm happy to hear that. Course, the Sheeple are condemning Ellen and Jon, saying that Ellen leaked the story to the press, and Jon being with his kids is for publicity. So, why are there no pics? Wow, something NORMAL!

Does Jon have to give his permission for his kids to be shown on E.(Since, its not TLC)?

This is a narcissist, and as such, it doesn't matter if the report is positive or negative, just that she receives the publicity.

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&
This is PA. We haven't quite gotten to that point yet. There are strict liquor laws here - state stores are licensed to sell alcohol, but places like Target, WalMart and grocery stores are not.

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

The kids are not "participating" in the production of the show. It's a documentary that will use pre-recorded tape of them, so no permission is needed. If they had been asked and agreed to participate and been interviewed specifically for the show then they'd need a parent's permission.

Kat said...

Finally!! Jon has a positive article written about him and the getting to be "just" kids makes me feel like there is hope for their future

Last night 30 Rock poked fun at Jon...showed a photo of him hanging out with Mel Gibson. I spit my drink out when I saw it!

JoyinVirginia- I'm from PA and now live in VA where I enjoy being able to buy wine at the grocery stores etc. Target does not sell alcohol, due to PA's antiquated liquor laws.
You have to go the the liquor store (as they were known when I was growing up), now Wine and Spirit stores.
Even worse, you have to go to a separate beer store for beer!
Truly primative!

If you disagree with someone else's comment, that is fine. The disagreement, however, does need to be polite and avoid boards on boards commenting. Thank you.

*************
Jon is not going to live down the Ed Hardy era any time soon! I know when I was going through a divorce, I felt like I could spread my wings and grow, in good ways. There were no foobs, hair extensions, plunging necklines (although I did spend an awful lot at Victoria's Secret-but that was only for me and a special someone to know ;-)) or CFM shoes for buying groceries.
Jon has come a long way since the Haily Glassman days. He was really off his rocker for a while there. But, at least he's back to himself. Kate, on the other hand, shows not a trace of who she was when the show began. Physically and socially.

PA G-ma said...

To the posters who wrote that PA does not sell liquor in grocery stores...that has changed. Liquor is sold in food markets in the Northeast part of the state and in the Poconos.

WonderButton said...

The skinny on where you can buy alcohol in PA.....

BEER/MALT/WINE COOLERS: A six pack or two can be purchased at a grocery store (only certain ones), convenient mart, bar or pizza place. Some places even offer draft beer for take out. (All of the above places limit the amout of alcohol that can be purchased by one person in one transaction.) Cases and kegs can only be bought at beer distributors.

WINE: By the bottle/box only from state stores or wineries. Sometimes kiosks or temporary stores are setup in malls/food courts around the holidays. Some cafes/food courts now have "wine-by-the-glass" dispensers which are monitored by the state. You can buy cooking wine in the grocery store (too salty to drink).

HARD LIQUOR: (vodka, schnapps, brandy, etc.) can only be purchased at state stores.

We can't buy alcohol over the internet, either, which is a bummer. At any rate, and in case you're wondering, PA's tight control over alcohol stems from its Quaker roots.

(((((((((((((((((((

Hard liquor, or just beer? Unfortunately, we're not in the Northeast part of the state! Is wine sold at Target and Walmart? I heard that they were going to change the laws in grocery stores, but I didn't know if it was state-wide, or only in certain parts of the state, and had not heard if it was beer only and not wine.

"At any rate, and in case you're wondering, PA's tight control over alcohol stems from its Quaker roots."

I bet that old Billy Penn enjoyed a glass of schnapps just as much as the next person!

hair colorist/hairdresser said...

When our dear Katan wanted a new look and she said "Okay" to hair extensions because she had nice, thick hair. Well, what they didn't tell the Katan was than hair extensions thin out the hair. The pull, the sewing, the heating instruments are too much for even the healthiest hair.

If she had a good hairdresser/colorist she would be advised to cut that hair extensions out now before she goes bald and makes a lot of us happy.

Actually the color makes her look drawn and older, together of course, with the fake tanning.The color combination does not work.

Once she had blue eyes, highlights,lowlights with brown, nice skin coloring...almost perfect coloring combinations, which she has really screwed up.

Her hair is very thin strands now.

Another comment please. All of the photos, almost everytime the only tup's hand she holds or keeps near her or wants to be near her is Hannah. Hannah is almost always smiling but the other children seem sad.

I do wish she would get those kids out of the limelight then try to get a job without being associated with the children and maybe she would get a fair shake at a job without bad comments.

Yes, and I commented about it upthread. She looks like a plastic, aging Malibu Barbie. It's astounding that anyone could have aged so much in so short a period of time. I've not seen anything like it.

Can't she see this, or do narcissists see only what they want to see? Is there nobody that can show her what she has done to her physical appearance? Is she listening to those in celebrity land who are telling her that this is what's trending in Hollywood?

And, are those people laughing behind her back, and she's just too ignorant to know it?

"All of the photos, almost everytime the only tup's hand she holds or keeps near her or wants to be near her is Hannah. Hannah is almost always smiling but the other children seem sad."

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

I think at one time this was true, but if you look at the photos from recent trips, she seems to be paying attention to Alexis more than she ever did before.
