hubby is a pap said...

Kate & Steve drove by Limo to NY, spent 2/12 in NY, then,hubby and company got the call, she and steve would be jogging in Central park at 7 a.m. Guess what? Only 1 pap showed up, no one wanted the call, honest. They flew into LAX that night for The Talk the next day. Not a pap at the airport tried to take 1 photo, honest. She even made a fuss, by talking loud, short skirt, tank top, heels, sat crossed leg in a restaurant before the flt. No paps cared. Hubby said, no one is paying for a photo. So none of them are taking photos. Also, they don't like that she taunts them. She will open a Limo window and yell and laugh at them, close the window. No kidding. See, no matter how famous you are, if you don't do the Kim K or Paris H walk and give them the photo, which is them making a living, they don't chase you anymore or run for a photo. She is not a photo any of the agencies are paying top money for.Every pic is the same. She hides what she really does which might make a good photo. so she does herself in. That is her M.O. In my hubby's job, what is hot is what gets the shots. If you are hot and you are nice? You have it made like the phony Kim k does? Yet, she poses, stands there and will stand there for 10 or 15 minutes making sure everyone gets a good photo. so they love her. I hadn't been here for a while as I work too and with flu season, my kids have been sick. Now, we are leveling out. Just read about The talk and remember what the hubby said. The paps also don't think she is good looking either, thought she was cuter about 2 yrs ago. She gets older looking with the orange coloring. Kind of weird.

Monster Mommy said...

Let's get real...

Most people in this job-seeking world, can not get an interview-- let alone full-time employment.

I am so pleased for you, Jon.

hubby is a pap, you said that kate and PurseBoy spent 2/12 in NY, then flew to LAX that night for The Talk the next day. That would have to be 2/14 on Valentines Day, because she was on the Talk on Tuesday and it is live.

Did Jon even get to be with the kids on Valentines Day?

Kris said...

hubby is a pap, thank you.

You just confirmed what I've been thinking the last 2 weeks. There have been no photos of the witch out and about, nor has there been any headlines in the trashier magazines about her.

If the paid photographers don't want anything to do with her, she's done.

Duckman said...

I used to think Kate had the mental makeup of a high-schooler. Based on what "hubby is a pap" related, Kate mentally is more like a third-grader. That would explain why she was wanting Nobu for lunch in the same way a little kid wants ice cream.

Pattypanda said...

hubby is a pap, this just goes to prove more every day that Steve is not needed or there in the function as a body guard. No one cares anymore to take her pic, must not be worth even $100 at this point.

8unhappycampers said...

Do any of the sites like ROL get paid themselves for posting pics? I'm just thinking that's the next logical step here.

pinkdiamond611 said...

Kudos to Jon. You got your self-worth back. Your family must be so proud. What you are giving your children is worth more than all the money in the world.

Shoka's Understudy said...

I saw the picture of Jon sitting on the roof with safety equipment on and I said a prayer for him for protection and safety.

He was putting solar panels on a roof of a shed or storage building.

The kids will know that he got a real job to help his children, unlike their mom, chasing a pipe dream that will never happen, and making them suffer the entire ride.

Shoka's Understudy said...

I remember back years ago on Donohue, a woman was on who had lived a very lavish lifestyle and now was broke and on foodstamps.

Her and her husband had some business and they just couldn't fly first class anymore, private plane, the flower bill for flowers in the mansion was 4K a month in the mid eighties. There was an elderly woman NYC socialite on there, asked her when she heard that, do you not have a small backyard where you could GROW your flowers?

Bottom line, everything collapsed and she and her daughters were left out in the cold and had to get on welfare and food stamps.

Her day came and so will kates.

I have always wondered what ever happened to them.

Shoka's Understudy said...

I know the Sheeple are trying to make Jon a laughing stock about his new job.

But I wonder how many of the Sheeple's husbands are actually construction workers/roof workers or installers of solar panels?

They wouldn't laugh at them, but with kate as their idol, wouldn't put it past them.

So proud and happy for Jon!

Use to be a Fan said...

Pretty soon, maybe in a couple of months, we will ONLY have to go to you tube and HUNT for something on Katie, know why?

The end of the 15 minutes is fast approaching, honest injun.

No one sees her and no one cares.

Jon did the best thing by staying cool, getting a regular job and just being "old Jon" and he does not look to hurt Kate, but just live his life.

That makes Kate look like a selfish witch, because she is taking every penny the man has and she made millions last year.

BUT GUESS WHO HELPED HER BUILD HER EMPIRE? It was poor Jon and even though he was a part of it all and he knew he hurt his kids.

He apologized to everyone on Twitter.How could he apologize to Kate in person when she beat him, took away his manhood in front of millions and now looks like a hooker?

Yes, goodbye Kate, as we now know that you do read everything on the web, you said it on The Talk "99% of what you read on the internest isn't true"....how would you know Sweetheart if you didn't spend your days trolling the web sites?

Kate, do yourself a favor and take a pic of yourself helping one of your children with math and put it on the Fan club web site to show us you even do help those kids, you are no math genious.

You are a beggar who hit it rich, temporarily. Sell that house and get yourself back into a 4 bedroom with a full basement for your bedroom. Steve will be going home to MD in about 6 months for GOOD.
lol lol lol lol

so sick of her said...

Thanks for the info Hubby is a pap. So Kates been gone what 10 days now, from home? Poor Kate, I guess she needed a vacation from her kids(not that she has 10 hours a day away from them(she spends 3 1/2 hours a day with them, unless the nannys take over), plus weekends(Jon has them), some surgery, hair cut(whatever). So what is Steve to her Handler/trainer or lover? hubby is a pap: GOOD FOR YOUR HUBBY AND THE REST OF THE PAPS! Maybe if she had been nicer to everyone on the way up, they might have been nice to her on the way down or kept her in the spot light. Most celebs love it when no one follows them, or takes a pic of them. This proves Kate is in love with fame. Probably already sold her soul for fame. She sold out her kids and tried to sell out Jon, Jon moved on, she hasn't. Yeah, Kate you really are raising your kids, your not even there. JMO

no one cares, kate said...

Kate, now you have what you want. The evil p-people are leaving you alone, even when you invite them to chase you. So what are you gonna bitch about now?

Descartes asked if a tree fell in the forest and no one was around, would it make a sound? I wonder if Target exists to you if Chris is no longer there to take your picture. It must be so sad to tan, get your hair done, dress like a lumpy hooker and have no one give a flip. Even the blog interest is waning.

Gotta say I love it. Haha, you slimy witch.

dustilies said...

Duckman . . . spot on!

I can't quite tell if KG is intellectually lazy or just sort of stupid, but combined with her immaturity, it hardly matters.

She's like Veruca Salt, whining and manipulating and certain that she will get whatever she wants, no matter how foolish.

Or maybe she's just stuck in pre-adolescence--a forever eye-rolling sixth-grader who knows everything about everything, especially what is cool. Explains the clothing choices, the obsession with hair, the attachment to the cell phone.

And, more seriously, the way she blandly shirks her responsibilities to her kids. She seems to have decided that the kids' education and emotional well-being are really not her concern, like there is some other person whose job that is.

Cause poor Kate deserves to have a good time, a great body, and endless pampering. Remind me what it is she has done to deserve these things? Seems to have slipped my mind . . .

Listen to this clip from Oprah Show about how OFTEN the crew changes!! Dad's really, Kate? Can't you even remember documented lies thst you tell? Cam you just imagine how all of those children will lie when they are teenagers? How very sad.

PatK said...

Are we sure Kate has been out in L.A. all this time? Who would be footing the bill for her and Steve's accommodations? Seems a bit excessive if she's only out there to appear on two talk shows roughly a week apart.

If she's been there all this time, there has to be something else in the works...especially if this is on TLC's dime.

***********************************
Look at Jon smirk at Kate when she said she gets up at 5.30 every morning to work out!!
So this was after the faux wedding ceremony in Hawaii? At that time, I believe they were done with each other and Oprah's questions must have hit a nerve about how they find time for each other!!!

Oh what a tangled web we weave
When Kate has lies, up her sleeve!!!

___________________

I am not a sheeple; and I despise Kate as much as everyone else on here does. However, I think that if Kate were to take a pic of herself helping her child with math, she would sell it for more money and she'd try to keep up her "I'm a good mom" image. JMO though.

Racermom281 said...

She torment's everybody else, so why not the pap's? The recent pics of her coming out of Target, she was waving her finger at Chris.
No wonder she complained about being exhausted all the time, it take's alot of energy to be that negative.

last2cu said...

Brummy Girl, Kate even got confused at which time she got her coffee and "her coffee" was always a big deal! And look at those children, you know that they were threatened within an inch of their lives if they made a peep and the whole time they were listening to their mom and dad lie their butts off to Oprah.. And then Kate had the gall to five that poor woman "advise"????

hannah said...

When they moved into the big house. Kate told they cant go into the parents room. I think it was so the kids wouldnt know Daddy slept in the basement.

Does Hannah still have her own room?

Shoka's Understudy said...

Just watched the lil sugar video with Oprah and kate and Jon and kids.

When kate talked about how the cameras did not effect the kids and they were getting to travel and their social skills, people skills, culturing and that it was just something wonderful and amazing.

This is going to come back and bite her in the arse really, really bad in the Big, Big Lawsuit!

The man and woman expecting the quads seemed to be normal and they were holding hands. Don't ever recall Jon and kate holding hands.

Jon couldn't hold back the smirks when kate was spewing the lies about getting up at 530am and running for an hour.

Lying, lazy cow.

Made me ill that she kept saying the kids go to bed, they are in bed. Reminds me when she would put them in the cribs for hours so she would not have to deal with them.

At the end the kids were saying, bye, Oprah, and one of the tup girls said, Love you.

How is a small child that says bye to a camera, say Love you?

kate stop prompting your children, especially to Oprah.

2/19/2011 11:21 PM

I think the girl tups all share one room and the not-a-nanny has the other bedroom.

Same with in the E-Town house, they pretended that Alexis slept in the basement to explain the bed down there. But in the episode where they staged Jon waking her up in the basement, she was lying on the couch.

Doctor Yes said...

They wouldn't laugh at them, but with kate as their idol, wouldn't put it past them.

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

I'm not so sure about that. They might not only be laughing at them, but whining because their husbands are stuck in those jobs, wishing they had married physicians, attorneys or financial consultants...anything but blue collar workers, and so, they live vicariously through Kate because it's the lifestyle of which they always dreamed.

KateIsFOS said...

Oh Please- My sister worked 4 night a weeks from 7pm-7am as a nurse, while her husband worked full time from 8:30am -5pm, while raising six kids.

Furthermore, my mother was widowed at 40 and managed to raise six kids as TRULY SINGLE MOTHER, working full-time and we all have the utmost respect for her as we always came first. How lucky were we?

Fufuss said...

hubby is a pap, thanks for the great post...that is a hopeful sign.

And, Used to be a fan, I totally agree with you...K8s 15 minutes is just about down to the last minute.

I do not watch anything, buy anything nor click on anything that is K8. I will not give her one iota of ratings. -But I do watch quite a few programs on TLC.
From viewing TLC, I think they are about done with her too. Remember, the "We are the TLC Family" commercial a couple of months ago? In it, among others, were the Little Couple, the Duggars, the Cake Boss, the Cupcake Ladies, etc. ...but NO K8!!---K8 is not their "Golden Child" anymore...nope. Their "Golden Child" now is the Cake Boss. Oh yes he is!! --Has K8 had even one show on TLC in 2011?? NO!(YAY!)
-Buddy,the Cake Boss has had his Cake Boss show....now his Kitchen Boss show...& had the Next Great Baker show. Plus, I've seen Buddy
and his small bakery crew doing a commercial for garbage bags.

JMO, but Kate is about done. And I, for one, won't miss her.

I Heart Buffy said...

Hubby is a Pap....

Love it. Taunting the paps? Who is she kidding? That is just pathetic. So very sad & pathetic. Oh, & desperate, let's not forget desperate. She is soooo over. HA!

Exhausted said...

When this whole house of cards finally collapses (I think we're seeing the start), and Kate tries to hold onto the money she's made through the years and make it last, I hope one day she realizes that she could have made triple what she made and been much more marketable had she learned to be gracious and nice.

Yes, Queen Narcissa will probably delude herself to her dying day and yes, she's made much more than someone with her lack of personality and skill should ever make...however, this fool could have cornered that whole Mommy market and launched lots of related shows, products, you name it. She had the audience base to be similar to a Racheal Ray phenomenon, but her idiotic arrogance kept her from trying to learn more, from being humble to those she worked with, and from keeping her ridiculous and rude opinions to herself. If she had tried to be charming and helpful and not condescending, I think she could have pushed organizational products and so on. She started to do that school lunch thing, and they tried her Walmart line. But by then, she had already burned too many bridges and let her claws show too much. They even did an article that said what a polarizing spokesperson she was. How can you be polarizing when you're trying to make a business out of this?! Didn't anyone teach you anything?

What a foolish person. She had so many people fooled, but she just couldn't stand to act like a decent human being. I think that for so long she had acted vile and had still gotten so many free things that she just thought she was entitled to keep taking, taking. But no one likes an ingrate...and an ingrate who has no discernible talent or class is even worse. Add a dash of "I'm not afraid to be a rotten mother in front of everyone" and you've completed the recipe for disaster.

So poor, poor Kate. So many opportunities and so little good judgment. You had them inviting you to the awards shows and Paula friggin' Deen willing to let you on a show of hers. But you had to pout all the time, not learn anybody's name on these shows, and have your goon bodyguard blocking everyone away.

Well, I hope the ride was fun. Cheer up, Kate. If you're really good when you're old and alone, maybe one of the kids will take you out for a special day. You'll even get your own cup of dry cereal to munch on in the car!

Amy2 said...

Kate who? She's last week's news. She has nothing new to say in her talk show interviews. She has nothing new to sell. Its the same old broken record. Real stars go on talk shows to sell/promote somethng. She has nothing.

Viewers now move on to the next person. Its over. Next!

Actually, I saw a commercial just right for Kate. It was for Clorox Bleach and the woman said the word "Clean-ish".
That could be her next stab at fame...a commercial. Hmmmm, let's see:

"Sticky-notes"...............

"Stick with me and you will see
a way to stick it to your hubby"!!

"Miracle Push-up Bras"........

One push is all that matters.

Blind item in National Enquirer:

"What reality show diva was so annoyed when her daughter woke her up from a nap during a long flight that she slapped the kid across the face? The high-flying "mommie dearest" immediately apologized to her little girl when she realized nearby passengers saw the whole thing."

Shoka's Understudy said...

Article on kate:

TV did not break up my Family!

http://www.current-movie-reviews.com/people/2011/02/20/kate-gosselin-tv-didnt-break-up-my-family/

yeah, right.

also, look at the picture of her on the ferry in NYC posing with the kids. She is wearing the short white shorts and the black halter top with the gladiator strapped sandals. BUT, she is sitting there posed with her children with her knees 3 ft. apart. So vulgar!

What mom does that?

kate does.

kissy said...

I am amused at Kate's attempt to stay relevant by responding to the story billy ray cyrus is now telling about how his daughter being in the spotlight ruined their family.

Kate doesn't get it. It's not about rather the show is scripted or not. It's about that she's allowing her children to be exposed to a lot of pressure and stress that is unprecedented at this age. Just the schedule is too much for them. Not to mention the incredible amount of negative critical comments that have been posted on the internet. What mother in their right mind cant see the damage she's doing?

And so we can only assume that there is some type of personality disorder or mental health issue that causes her to believe her own lies, justify inappropriate behavior and bad parenting, and destroy the lives of everyone around her in order to reach her goals and get the attention she is so desperate for.

_____________

Just saw this too. IMO, I think that is why Kate did the interview on "The Talk..for damage control.Kate talked about how Alexis was asking how long the flight would be, etc..
and how Kate brought toys on the plane for each child to keep them busy..on how Kate is lucky to get one hour of sleep on the plane. I asked myself why Kate kept talking about the plane ride. IMO,it was for damage control and an opportunity to spew her lies.

So DONE! said...

Definately Kate in the blind item. You are right Gaby, Kate spent a great deal of time explaining how SHE keeps the kids entertained on flights, and tries to keep them calm. I just kept seeing in my mind the airplane scene from the Utah trip, where Kate is having a tantrum and the kids are running wild! I was thinking, "how can she say this, when we have seen how she behaves on trips?" I am more inclined to believe the contrary report by flight attendent on one of Kate's flights. She said Kate slept while the PA's and the attendents took care of her vomiting child, to the point of even changing the child's clothing.

I hope the NE gets to these people--pays them and others and writes the true report, naming names. Maybe the children's hope lie with the NE exposing the true monster that is their mother? Wouldn't that be ironic, that the NE made money by saving children from abuse, instead of merely reporting on the effects of abuse in Celebrities?

Gaby said...

Another thing that puzzles me,
According to Kate,the crew is their new family now! Too bad they weren't around when they were on hiatus. Reality check Kate, when the show's over the crew moves on! This chick has know idea what a real family is...Or she just wants no part of it.

Shoshanna said...

Gaby said, "I asked myself why Kate kept talking about the plane ride. IMO,it was for damage control...".

Saw the blind item and thought the same thing.
Everything she does and says is a self-serving lie.
This woman is such a monster. I can't wait for the day when she's exposed (and I don't mean just her foobs).

Tami said...

Yep, it's funny how the kids supposedly cried and missed the crew when the show was not filming. Why would that be? Oh yeah, because when not being paid to be around her, they are NOT THERE!!

pinkdiamond611 said...

LXNewYork, the NYC NBC Live at Five show, just showed a segment "Hideous Yearbook Photos". Guess who they showed? Yes our own Katie Irene. Then when they showed her after pic it was her with the old hairdo. And when they said the word "hideous", they made sure they showed her pic more than any of the others. LOL. I wish the segment would be online for you to laugh. Yep, Katie Irene, you made the big time. . .laughing stock wherever you go.

You ain't a mom said...

Don't know that as fact, but think those kids are very lonely in that house. Kate is always staring at her phone, the web sites *hi, bitch* and those kids arrive home, change, do their homework, eat something, then they just go to their rooms until they wash up and go to bed.

I don't think Kate even goes and tucks them in. I do believe some of those 6 may be angry with Kate and ignore her and save their excitement n their life with the Dad only.

Yep, Kate, if you think your kids miss the "crew/dad" then that means to me that they miss their real Dad and when they cry, they tell you the crew, so you won't hit them, when they are missing Jonathan, no the crew.

Oh you aren't smart enough to realize your kids are wise to you?

Forgot how you are not bright, I mean Kim K made somewhere in the high 20 millions, while her family topped 65 million or more.

Let's see what could you sell? How about perfume "Lies & Deceit" by Katie G.....a bit of skunk in it...how you are starting to smell, my Dear Katie.

My sister's manner said...

Heard this at an airport where Kate and Steve were "sad that she really messed up her looks" and who said that so they could hear it?

My sister. She should be ashamed of herself, huh?

Have to have a talk with her about that, especially when looking directly at the person as she said it.

Kate Gosselin Makes Her Kids Work On Their Day Off From School! Shouldn’t They Get A Break? Exclusive!

The eight little Gosselins are working around the clock for their mom’s reality show! Should Kate give them a rest?

Whether it’s dragging her kids halfway around the world or documenting the holidays, Kate Gosselin always finds an excuse to put her eight children in front of the camera!

A source tells HollyBaby.com that even though the Gosselins’ private school gave them Feb. 21 off to recognize President’s Day, a national holiday, Kate saw it as the perfect opportunity to film scenes for their TLC reality show Kate Plus 8!

“Kate took her kids — with cameras in tow — down to their local Giant grocery store, to film,” our source says. “Unbelievable that she won’t let them have a day off.”

We spoke to a source at the grocery store, and they confirmed the rumors.

http://www.hollybaby.com/2011/02/21/kate-gosselin-plus-8-day-off/

I Heart Buffy said...

I can't believe Kate thinks she can go on. Did she honestly think that a reality show person would be famous forever & she would have a show until her kids were 18? Those kids in a couple of years, will be saying NO, no more filming, & Kate, well, it seems interest is pretty mush waning. There are no photos, no magazine articles, nothing to keep her relevant anymore. Even blog interest is low. :(

Her show doesn't start again until April? OK then...Does anyone feel like TLC is just kind of dangling a carrot (the color of Kate) in front of her face to keep her around for some demented reason? I doubt they will even air her show. Did you hear they were filming her & her kids at Giant today? Um, whoopee?? Who cares about that?? Like watching freaking paint dry. The ratings will suck. Nobody cares about her anymore. I think it's over & she better start reassessing her life, starting with her relationship with her kids.

Monster Mommy said...

My Sister's Manner- I LOVE IT!

Do we share a sibling? My little sister is a year younger, with a completely different (agressive extrovert) personality. I am afraid for the day we see Kate Gosselin *with Pursy in tow* here in L.A., 'cause it sure wouldn't be pretty.

(BTW... My Sister's a Pain in the Arse)

Kate DID ruin her looks, the one little thing she once had going for her. Someone said here that Kate is the most attractive 'celebrity' mom of multiple births out there. I disagree. Quints by Surprise's, Casey Jones is far more naturally attractive than Kate. And by the looks of it, Casey didn't have to rely on plastic surgery, as these other moms have. Kate's face coming out of Target, usually pretty much always says... "Botox Anyone?"

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

I hadn't thought of Kate this way - but you may be onto something. I definitely agree that Kate seems stuck in a very immature frame of mind, like her mind/brain and heart never matured past a certain very selfish teen age time. The gum smacking, the belief that mini skirts are appropriate clothing, the extreme focus on her appearance, and the emotional immaturity certainly all fit Kate.

Perhaps that's why she has a following among some young teen girls - they really can identify with Kate because in many ways, she's just like them. Hopefully, most of those teen girls will mature, as most of us do with age.

As to those foolish Kate fan who belittle Jon's job, because it's "manual labor," or some such - again, they only emphasize what complete idiots they are themselves when they do that. I admire anyone who can earn an honest living. I'm often sorry I didn't become a mechanic or plumber, or some such myself!

I hope Jon does well in this new job and makes a go of it. A person who does an honest day's work and has something to show for it, is to be respected. I pity the families of those moronic fans.

Shoka's Understudy said...

Way to go My Sister's Manners! I kept wondering, why is she ranting and raving about the plane flight? LIES LIES LIES LIES and Damage Control.

She is evil personified. That poor little girl had to take a slap to the face. If passengers saw it, why didn't they report it?

I would of had a fit, got off the plane and would of grabbed a Pap who could get in touch with the AP wire. I would of got all the pictures I could of, hopefully video of kate spasming out about the situation. She would of not been able to spin that. Every penny of money would go directly to the Big Oak Ranch Orphange in my area and Operation Christmas Child! love that organization!

Poor Mady and now another little sister (possibly could be Mady, again) on the recieving end of a slap from their pyschotic mother.

The Alaskan photo of Mady crying is so pitiful. Maybe Jon can talk to the girls and find out exactly what happened.

Shoka's Understudy said...

Talking about getting a job and unemployment, my husband left a wonderful job that made paper plates. He had his own machine in the plant and he was making very good money. He decided to leave because he thought the grass was greener on the other side.

People have been putting in applications in for years, trying to get on. When he left, the word got out and they had over 1100 applications put in for that one job.

His job.

"Her show doesn't start again until April? OK then...Does anyone feel like TLC is just kind of dangling a carrot (the color of Kate) in front of her face to keep her around for some demented reason?"

I don't use the expression much, but LOL @ the Color of Kate comment.

Yes, I believe TLC is keeping her around for some demented reason (besides the cold, hard cash)-- and it's sick. Sick that eight minor children must work during their President's Day Holiday off school, in order to support Mommie Dearest's disgusting lifestyle. We all know one or more of the Gosselin kids are going to refuse to be on camera, once they hit their tweens and can make their own choices.... and have their voices heard. Kate and TLC are taking advantage of every opportunity they have until then to tape more (ah-hem....) SPECIALS, while they still have it. For crying out loud, they just got back from filming their trip to Oz & New Zealand. Isn't that enough, where TV specials are concerned? Stop the insanity, TLC.

Ampersmom said...

Kate grocery shopping with the kids?? Oh yeah, this is TLC re branding of her being a hands on do it all single mother. Sorry folks way to late to buy this line. Kate herself has said in the past that she does not shop with the kids, it is to much for her to handle. All of a sudden this is an everyday task.


What is also funny is seeing how the sheeple on other site are all up in arms about what Oprah gave the family on her show and how Kate got nothing from Oprah.

If she was filming today, I guess that means her George Lopez "appearance" was taped last week?

No Worry, Beef Curry said...

Wow, Kate is exactly like a teenage girl.

The Sheeple are ridiculous. Get a life, and find someone else worthy enough to worship, besides Kate Gosselin.

Sheeple: When I was a kid, my idol was Olivia Newton-John. Find someone 2011-ish like that. Okay-ish?

WonderButton said...

Maybe she had to go grocery shopping today to do more preemptive damage control for the Lopez interview airing tonight. She was even wearing sensible clothing and the kids were, too. Read here much, Stevie et al.?

BTW - There was only that one pic at hollybaby? What heppened to ROL? ROL has up ads for St. Jude's. Another missed opportunity for Kate to do some good and stay in the spotlight.....could have used some of her name recognition for St. Jude's. Did that episode even include a plug to donate to the hospital? That would have been a nice touch. (I can't remember.)

Tizzie said...

On the subject of the two expelled tups being homeschooled, - does anyone else remember the "Winter Preparation" episode from Season 3, Kate said it was her goal for the fall to do pre-school at home with the tups?

Wonder what happened to that idea, probably tossed into the "Too Hard" basket since the kids would not be delayed academically if Kate had put in the effort to teach them what they DO need to know, instead of making them memorize unimportant things like the order in which they were to eat their lunch.

MoGal said...

The photo on Hollybaby was taken off of a twitter account. The twitter name is @15_MeLoBaby_11, she took two photos and made the comment-"The evil witch blocking up the whole aisle" In one picture she is pushing a regular shopping cart with a camera attached to the front of it. In the other picture (the one on Hollybaby) she's pushing a cart with a double basket. Just more proof it's all staged. How many people decide to switch carts while doing their grocery shopping.

I have no idea why anyone would want to watch this woman shopping, but I'm sure some lost souls will be watching with bated breath....

Ampersmom said...

GL offered Kate the chance to slap him....and instead she kissed him My how she NEVER held back from slapping in the past. Poor Jon, abused throughout the marriage and GL had the nerve to insult Jon and Kate being the high road taker did not even tell GL not to go there. Yeah, she never talks bad about Jon...unspoken words do a lot of damage.
Her outfit...is she raiding the twins closet again? That dress was so short and that ding a ling does not know how to keep her legs (knees) together! I guess the pattern was suppose to make her look like she has an hour glass figure. Sorry Kate, you don't - doesn't matter how much you exercise, you do not have any type of feminine figure. Tree truck fits you so well. And all of a sudden you have a best friend again. And you claim you have been on a few dates - are any of those the "dads"

Monster Mommy said...

Wonder Button- (I know you don't mean me, but...)

Sometimes I post under 'Why is Mommy Orange?'... as most of you guys already know. It's funny.
I let that handle come out, when appropriate- i.e. when Kate looks citrus-y... and when people like Tangerine Tanya ~Harding~ post (hysterical laughter). You guys are my escape, and I love it.

I think GWoP typically has their share of people posting with bad intentions, but they are probably scarce. Deep down, our cause can't be argued with. Yeah, I see postings have dwindled because of the lack of media coverage... but it doesn't mean we don't still feel the same way about the children. I hate that they are filming now. If it were my child (don't have any), I would take the cameras and send them flying on a Trebuchet... launching an October Roloff (like Kate, also orange) pumpkin.

Why is Mommy Orange? said...

Let's get this straight... Kate Gosselin's calves are called Tree Trunks (not trucks) and nothing else.

...And her skin coloring is to be named "Ginger", not Orange from this point forward.

She's airing on George here any second. Agh.

Berks Has Shoes! said...

Just more proof it's all staged. How many people decide to switch carts while doing their grocery shopping.

I haven't switched carts, but I did have to get another one when the first one was full. Maybe that's what happened...

dustilies said...

It is truly amazing to me how KG can take dresses that are revealing, flirty, sparkly, fitted, and look like a total FRUMP! Remember the red fringe number from DTWS? Remember the corset inspired dress she wore on Jimmy Kimmel?

In the first, she looked like a block of cheese. In the second she looked like a badly formed sausage. In this black number she wore on George Lopez, she looked like a blob of sauerkraut.

She's not just asexual, she's anti-sexual, like a kind of dark matter opposed to all joy and sensuality.

I have a bunch of brothers and a bunch of guy friends. They pretty much all agree that the sexiest thing a pretty woman can wear is a plain white t-shirt and blue jeans (and not too tight, either).

Oh yes, I'm sure that's what happened. I'm sure it was just a normal shopping trip too, and not something staged just for tv.

Shoka's Understudy said...

dustlilies! a block of cheese! hilarious!

Well, I got so ill about kate slapping her daughter on the flight, the judge saying it was ok to take the kids to AU/NZ, even when their FATHER was in court objecting.

I emailed the NE and told them some things. And I got a response.

Dear Ms. Shipp, The following content is Just My Opinion.
Thank you for responding back from my email. I personally do not know
Ms. Gosselin, but I belong to a Blog called Gosselins without Pity. We are a very dedicated group to stop the children from being filmed. They are working. In the state of PA, you have to have a permit at the age of 7 to film a movie only. These children have been working for years without
a permit until finally TLC, due to public pressure, was forced to go through the process and get them, and by PA law, the sextuplets were still not old enough, but the twins were, but they all got them.
These children are being exploited by a woman who needs to be medically examined to see if she
is mentally capable to be a fit parent. Whose kindergarteners get expelled? She does not parent them at all. She kept those kids in high chairs
until recently, they were using bibs and sippy cups until recently also. Also, the red wooden spoon.
She even hit Emeril with it twice on the show and he was rubbing his arm. She loves to hit. She slapped Jon and calls it Love Taps. In the last couple of days, she is in Damage Control for the slap to her daughter.
Jon has realized that filming and cameras in their faces has damaged them.
And I talked about the possessions getting thrown down the stairs. Some of the gates, lovey bear gate.

Here is her reponse from NE:

Hi, I'm Patricia Shipp, senior reporter at the Enquirer and responding to your tip on Kate Gosselin. How do you know her and the info you mentioned in your email to us? Please contact me so we can talk more, ok? Thanks so much, Patricia 310.256.0787.

More to come.

amy too said...

OMG, she is trying to Recreate herself into a "sexual being" with the shortest of dresses, a shoulder strap that she plays with to call attention to her breasts. That is what men look at. She keep her knees moving ...open/close...open/close, so that you eyes were either being drawn there or to her breasts.

Yes, she is not 18 or 21 or even 30.

Not an intelligent comment. She had the power to say "no comments about my former marriage/my former husband who is the father of my children and I don't want them to see anyone making fun of him"....but since there is nothing else to speak to Kate about other than that she runs, she exercises, she is Supermom and does it all for 8 kids and yet she not only brings home the bacon, but she can squeeze and she did squeeze herself into 3/4 of a sausage wrapper.

Know what that was? SAD, very SAD. If she gets a voice over on an animated cartoon, so what? She is working without the kids.

She is still ignoring the needs of her growing children and putting herself out there, probably hoping the Hustler magazine calls, after all I ain't never seen a Classy Star sit on a sofa, opening and closing her knees over and over like that.

That Sausage Wrapper was so tight, she couldn't even cross those legs.

Just sad. More bashing of the Paps, making sure to "say that she can outrun them and yells at them as she passes them" but neglected to say she is in a Limo, being driven, she is not running.

By the way, no photos of any shopping trips to the grocery store last week, know why? She has not been in Pennsylvania.

Quite an article about Kate lacking credibility, since she does nothing but LIE. Oh yes.Most of the article was about her either being delusional natural lier. And instead of dealing with the lack of emotional, social, etc. growth of 2 tups being expelled, she just drags them around on these trips, not dealing with their problems. All of the tups have problems but it hasn't been exposed yet, but it will come.

By the way, look at KG on Ellen last time she appeared. She wore sweater set and knee length skirt, kept her legs together.

What a sad clawing at the edge of the cliff as she is falling and really falling.

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

Spent last Thursday at the hair dresser and I also looked thru all of the trashier magazines for something/anything on Kate.

Nothing. I must have gone thru 2 weeks worth of magazines. Nothing.

Never in my every 5 week trip to get my "foils worked on" have I not seen at least one thing on the crazy one.

Is she disappearing? Wow, how lucky can we get.

so sick of her said...

Well, that pic of her with the kids shopping is from monday, which means: that Kate had filmed Lopez show last week sometime(it was not live). Now at Popeaters the article is saying that Kate & Jon are getting back together? If Jon is then he & Kate deserve each other and should disappear. I think this is a rumour started by the sheeple. Who are not just stalker types, but I think they are also in love with Kate, not only idolize her, but are completely obsessed,by her. JMO

Agreed! Hard to imagine ANY male finding K8G the least bit attractive on any level. She seems like male repellent to me.

Look at GL's body language as he dutifully lets her kiss him. There really should be a cartoon bubble over his head showing what's silently going through his mind with that kiss: "BLECH!!! Whatever they pay me isn't enough to put up with THIS!"

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

Yeah, I'm sure that's the ticket...:) Burks, I'll let you watch the show and report back to us. I would but....I have a feeling I'm going to be busy the night the grocery shopping episode airs.

Seriously, in the pictures posted neither cart was full and in one picture it looked like she was discussing what to do with the TLC people. Something tells me she did not just pick up her grocery list, grab the kids and tell the TLC people, "I have to do some grocery shopping, come along if you'd like." I can only imagine what it was like for the people there to really shop.

PatK said...

Regarding that Popeater rumor that Jon might want to get back together with Khate: Puh-leeze!

He's getting his self-respect back and there's no way he'd go back to her mentally castrating him again. Where do they come up with this malarky?

I Heart Buffy said...

WHO said Kate is the most attractive of all multiple moms? Insides count too in my opinion & she will NEVER be pretty, no matter how much blond, plastic & fillers you slap on that momster. I never once thought she was pretty, not even when she was fresh faced & possum-do'ed. She was still vile & hateful & mean. She treats people like pawns in her own little game of "Who can I claw on my way to the top?" & she most certainly has zero respect for the father of her kids. She also treats her kids as show-pieces & "the crew", rather than individuals & people. She cares more about fame than she does anything else & boosting her own ego rather than helping her kids deal with their issues. She is an ugly person, inside & out.

Hmm..that's odd the way she responded. You clearly said in the first line that you do not know her! She is acting as if it is something you witnessed in person and not on tv. I take it she never saw one of the shows. I would just respond that she should see all of these things right on the old shows.

Tami said...

Kate is very lucky that she was able to go to Australia and avoid the terrible flooding going on around her and then come home and miss the earthquake in NZ. She must lead a charmed life.

Monster Mommy said...

For Buffy,
Someone on this site said (maybe a week ago)- 'Let's face it... Kate's the most attractive mother of multiples out there', or something to that effect. Totally disagree. The I won't call the poster out though, because I'm supposed to be nice here, and I happen to like this blogger. Betty Hayes has my vote, if we must rate these mothers in terms of inner beauty.

~Giggle~... I think it was Brummy or Dustilies who once said, she's normally not a the type of person who gets angered or feels compelled to speak badly about anyone, but Kate brings that side out in her. I can relate. Kate makes my blood boil and it's strange that she provokes the worst feelings in people. She is just a toxic personality. Generally, shrews like Kate end up being lonely, old spinster women.

Hurtful article said...

Re the Popeater article about Jon and Kate getting back together.
1. It's nonsense.
2. Did Rob ever stop to think that the kids might get wind of it and the impact, hurt and confusion that such false information like this could have on them? Another example of grossly irresponsible 'journalism' (I use that term loosely for Rob's pathetic column).

No Worry, Beef Curry said...

These so-called Journalists are a joke. They take a whisper in the wind, and make it gospel. The articles I have read over the years on Radar Online alone, have turned me away from believing anything they "pen".

The REAL Charlene Kreider finally speaks (not)... Jon & Kate reconciling... NOT. Why would any man in his right mind, go back to her? Next.

Shoka's Understudy said...

Tami, I was confused about that too. Me and kate are miles apart! I live in Alabama (Roll Tide) and she lives in Pennsylvannia! haha

dustlilies, I laughed so hard, and it is 300am here. I had to stifle it because I don't want to wake up my roommate. (in nursing home).

I just reread it and I am still laughing. Oh, me!

I also told the NE in my email that I wanted them to get a picture of the designated parking spot for kate and print it. I told them that was so wrong for Giant to do that for her. I am sure there are other families with more than 8 kids in a 100 mile radius of that store, and they are not given one or even ASKING for one! Shame on that Store Manager!

So unfair!

Tami said...

I am wondering if the popeater article was put out by a "friend" of Kate to make people think when her stupid dating show (which you just know is coming!) comes out that Jon is pining for her. It will make her look less pathetic if it appears her ex wants her but she is ready to move on--rather than the reality, which is no one wants her and they have to pay men to appear on a reality show to date her.

She is a Cow! said...

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

I so totally agree!! I don't know what it is about her, but I cannot stomach watching even a minute of her and I DON'T! I haven't watched her show in years and will not watch anything that she is on. I come here to find out what a fool she makes out of herself after the fact. I am just waiting for the day that she gets what she deserves and she is taken down and is no longer relevent or worthy of any media coverage!!! That day can't come soon enough!!!

It's BERKS County, not Burks!

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

It's not true that the tups weren't old enough to have permits. The fact is that there was no law that addressed minors (under age 7) working in reality television. The law was archaic and needed direction. The previous law didn't say that they COULD work in television, but neither did it say that they COULDN'T. This is why the previous law was sent to the powers-that-be for interpretation. The law just didn't say anything, which is why the hearings were set and two new bills drafted.

She is a Cow! said...

I just posted a response to Monster Mommy, who I completely agree with in saying that Kate makes my blood boil! In thinking about it, I was wondering. Many people have posted that they don't care what Kate does as long as it doesn't involve the kids. I don't want those poor kids working either. It really has gone on too long! BUT do you REALLY feel this way??? Do you really want Kate to stay in the public eye?? I can say a resounding NO. I want her gone, out of the media. I can safely say, I do not want to sit down to enjoy a movie with my 3 kids and then be horrified to hear the Kate Kackle during the whole thing. And just the way she talks makes my skin crawl. I also do not want her guest starring on any of the shows I watch, or see anymore of her fluff on talk shows!! I personally think if she has a brain, she should have invested all of that money well and can take care of her children and herself for a very long time to come. She can get a regular job, out of the public eye and save the sanity of people like me, who gag at the mention of her name. Sorry for the rant, just how I feel!! :)

WonderButton said...

If the only way that the kids can have regular access to their father is for J and K to get back together, then, yes, I hope it happens. Jon can protect them from the toxicity of their mother. And, hopefully, the cameras will be banished from their lives. But I doubt either a reunion or banishment of the cameras will happen.

Hope you read this Kate G said...

My working in the field of Children Who Trust Too Much, etc., (not the real title) I would never encourage a parent to *tell your children* to think of men working in your home as "more Dads"


The words Dad and Mom mean entitlement and involvement to a child's mental and physical access and growth.

The crew is a group of men who work in your home, leave and go where you don't even know homes/family/friends.

They have been to your home when they are paid to be there BUT you are not in their homes EVER.

The Gosselin filming is an assignment in conjunction with all of their type of work and the only reason they are with Solid 9 Unit.

Strangers who perform a job are not family. Big misinterpretation on your part because you want FAMILY.

Are you telling the 8 are "like their Dads"?

What I have to say to you Kate is this

Have you ever interview them (no, you never interviewed the TLC crews, you have no idea what they do when they leave your house/go home/socialize/who they live with.So you are telling your children to trust strangers.

We do not know people unless we live with them, not travel with them. Dad is Jon.

Kate, you do need your family and friends back in your life and you do need Jon to co parent so you can pursue recreating your own career.

Start small with a phone call to Jon asking him to co parent with you. Get yourselves a good Psychiatrist, highly recommended to "quietly" learn to do this. No pap pics.

The children would celebrate every Holiday with a dinner with you, Jon and the 8. The Solid 10 even though Mom & Dad are no longer married, that no one will ever come between, not even step parents. Jon and you would make decisions concerning these children as you love them equally.

Jon did not leave, he lives near you. He could stay there, without his girlfriend, when you are away pursuing YOUR OWN CAREER. You would have house rules.

The children would become private residents of PA again. Boring, just living life, going to school, participating with other children in sports, music, wherever their interests are.

Kate, you are reading this. Get help. Stop being the joke of the Late Night Host, then going on their shows and flirting with short skirts. Be a smart business woman, like a Rachel Ray, develop your talent, whatever you may think you have and stop being a joke.

You were around Julie Chen. Smart woman. Rachel Ray, smart woman.

They don't wear the thigh high skirts, tanning booth.

You can take advantage of some of that charisma you may still have by learning to relate, once again, to all the fans you once had. You have to learn to say "I have learned to do some things better"

Remember Kate: The TLC crews interacts with your solid 8 BUT when they leave you do not interact with them, their families, sit at their dinner tables.

You can do this, get co parenting back in your life, make the 8's lives better, stop fighting and learn this important element "co parenting"

Start there and get out of the black hole you are spiraling into.
Please, do it for yourself first, your children will be happier with you and Jon as Mom and Dad again.

She is a Cow! said...

Just a short continuation of my rant regarding Kate trying to make a career in the media without her kids. I stated above, I hope it doesn't happen. She should find a "career" out of the public eye, because she cannot simply separate herself from her kids. They will always be associated with her. Her foolishness, her stupidity, her lies, her lack of common sense. She does not know how to conduct herself and her kids are at/and coming to the age where her behavior will have an effect on them. I am sure to Mady and Cara, she is an embarrassment with the way she acts and dresses. How about DWTS. UGH! Her kids, thanks to her, do not have anonimity, so anything she does, may come back to haunt them. Please, oh please do not make them live through her going on a dating show....I know it is just a rumor, but knowing Kate, she'd be all for it!!
Kate your 15 minutes are up, See ya, wouldn't want to be ya! Don't let the door hit you in the A__! NEXT!

Shame on you Kate Gosselin said...

I watched the Lopez-Kate tape.

Lopez said something about "Jon being foolish or childish and Kate rolled her eyes and said ...You Said It"

That man, Jon is the father of your children, all 8 of them. That is what I am told. You hurt your children. Yes, Kate every darn thing you use Jon for is a joke that harms your children for life.

What is wrong with you? I am serious. Kissing Lopez who made a fool out of you for allowing him to make all of those jokes about you over the past year or so and you kiss him? You think he "has fallen in love with you"

You think he is truthful in saying you are "amazingly beautiful"

Kate, not only have your fans left you. The people who have the brains who "long long standing in the show business world" do not allow themselves to be made jokes of nor do they allow their children to be made fun of because that is what you do when you do not say "I do not want any jokes about me, my 8 children nor my former husband and the father of my children"

Kate, can you appear on a show without mentioning anyone but yourself? Talk about a cookbook, recreate yourself in another way because you don't even have an advertising company wanting you to do a commercial.

You are more at the end of your famous 15 minutes because you have done that. You dug the hole more on the Lopez show, giggling, thinking that man flirted with you for any reason other than getting viewers.

He eats dinner with Sandra Bullock. Did he invite you to dinner with Sandra Bullock? Did he even ask you to lunch before the taping? NO

You allowed him to make fun of Jon and hurt your children so very much.

Shame on you, shame on you, shame on you.

Your own children are not allowed to have a childhood and security.

Leave them at home and go travel the world with Steve while you can still pay him. Those kids cried 8 x for their Dad not for the camera crew Dads.

Shame on you, you are a sinner of the higher regard, destroying the minds of your children, allowing other kids to tell them at school what you did on TV.

Is that why you and Mady don't get along? She defends her Dad against you?

Shame on you.

Thinking about it, would you REALLY like to subject Jon to another ten, twenty years or more of penury?
I have called Jon out many times for the part he played initially in exploiting the children, but even I would not wish this on him.
On Kate's part, she is hoping for a rich man to keep her, Jon does not qualify.
It would only put the children in the same situation of hearing their parents squabbling, nothing would change.

Jane in CA said...

Jon spent ten years with this crazy woman, with each year getting progressively worse for him. He's tasted freedom and I can guarantee that even if it means living in a box and panhandling, I doubt Jon would willingly become a minion of Kate's once again. That's what marriage to Kate entails - you are just another object to be pushed around, yelled at, belittled, ordered about, and quite likely, forced to join in her mocking of her own children. I really don't think anyone should wish this on Jon, no matter what you think of him personally.

Sure, there are cases where a person returns to their abuser, but I really don't see it happening here. Jon was under her thumb, a weak man ruled by a strong, mean woman. He didn't even willingly leave but was pushed out by Kate. Now that he's spent time with normal people again, I think he realizes how crazy it was to put up with Kate's behavior as long as he did.

I certainly feel sorry for the children, as I'm sure Jon does too. His hands are currently tied - so he does what he can, and sees them as often as the court order and Kate allow. The family law judge is obviously not paying attention or doesn't care.

But hopefully when the children get older, they will finally be allowed to choose which parent to live with, and then maybe they can go live with Jon. It would be wonderful to see a court order Kate to make child support payments to him for a change.

Please don't wish a re-marriage with Kate on Jon. Imagine how miserable a life that would be. At least she mostly ignores the kids - even though that's hurtful, I think that's probably the best to be hoped for.

So DONE! said...

Kate, the only way to get your face back on the covers of the mags is to come clean about your relationship with Steve. Saying Jon is trying to get back with you, isn't gonna do it.

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

Okay, it was me that said Kate was attractive. I only came to that conclusion after all the plastic surgery she's had. Or maybe I was drunk. Either way, I don't remember thinking she was all that great when she was sitting on the couch yammering in Jon's ear back in the good ol' days when I actually enjoyed the show. So my point was she had some good work done with the kid's money. In my humble opinion of course.

And I loved the comment on George Lopez that sometimes she takes things a little too far like her running addiction and wanting to do a marathon. Well, well, well. What do we have here? A little OCD perhaps? And her ability to eat nothing but salad the past 4 years? Addicted to staying thin for the fame quest. For any of us who have ever dieted, we all know how hard it is to do. Kate's drive is pretty impressive I must say. But I've often thought that if I was making millions, I would probably be able to stay thin if that is what my millions depended on.

I think there will always be a market for Kate. Someone mentioned the voice over for a movie coming out that had the word 'mom' in it. Well, there you go. Who is the world's most famous mom according to all the intro's she gets on TV? Kate just happened to fill a niche that no one had before her so that is why I think she will be around for a while. And it makes me physically sick to have to type that out. My fingers are all cramped up now.

WonderButton said...

There are lots of people in this world who love their kids enough to put themselves through hell and back to fill their kids' needs. Does Jon have what it takes to suffer under Kaiser Kate for another 10 years? I really do not know.

I don't wish for Jon to suffer. I wish more for the kids to have their dad back. I was thinking that it would be great if Jon came back, then Kate could go "play star". She would be gone most of the time - a relief to Jon and the kids. And the whole family could live off her salary, IF she found any meaningful work. And the kids wouldn't have to support her anymore. They could be off TV.

No, I don't want Jon to suffer. But I think their reuniting is a complete farce. The way I see it, Kate could never give up Steve. She could never suffer the humiliation of "crawling" back to Jon after all the nasty things she said/intimated about him in the national media.

I also think this "story" was a test by her PR team to see how much chatter (and what type of feedback) it generated, as a way to determine how popular she is right now. The feedback gained by reading comments on the reunion story would be used to determine how to spin things (how to try to clean up her image) next.

OK - so here's my advice on how to give Kate a more positive image: Get the kids off camera. Give their dad more visitation time. Let him be with them when she is out "playing star". Put age-appropriate clothing on her. Have her do a telethon or fund-drive for a charity other than herself. That would be a good start.

Are Jon and Ellen still together? If so, why would he be telling people he wants to get with Kate anyway? The whole thing is ridiculous. He ean't even go into her driveway and he's supposed to be in love with her still? Yeah, like there's not a TON of resentment there that is never going to go away!

Jane in CA said...

Kate's drive is pretty impressive I must say. But I've often thought that if I was making millions, I would probably be able to stay thin if that is what my millions depended on.

I think there will always be a market for Kate. S
========================

I agree with the first sentence, with a qualifier. When Kate puts her mind to accomplishing a particular goal, we have seen that she can lay out steps to reach it, focus completely and single-mindedly on it, and push herself and others to reach it.

However, where she falls short is in the follow through. She simply can't be nice to others, pretend to be nice, or otherwise be a "political" animal, which is required for long term success in any avenue.

She burns bridges. She uses people and then discards them like tissues. She leaves ill will in her wake.

So that's why I don't agree with your second thought -- that there will always be a market for Kate. She will continue to try to thrust herself into the limelight, but she has zero talent. Her ever shrinking fan base cannot carry her much longer. She's a pain in the ass to work with - producers won't like her, fellow actors/performers won't like her, and she doesn't have enough draw to overcome her negatives.

In the end, Kate will cause her own disappearance from the tv screen. The less opportunities, money or appearances she gets, the more desperate and unbalanced she'll become. Her success has made her a bit lazy and the older she gets, the harder it will be to put her laser-like focus into keeping herself employed on reality tv.

I'm thinking she's got one more year at most, before TLC drops her show and she's scrambling around for anything at all to stay on tv.

I think Jon is thrilled to not be married to the wicked witch of the east anymore. Who the heck is going to buy that he is trying to get back with her?
Too funny! She really is delusional.

Yes, if TLC didn't want the controversy. The controversy is what's keeping her going.

I doubt there would be numerous blogs and tabloids writing about a conservatively dressed 35 year old woman who does fundraisers for charities.

If it wasn't for the poor kids, no one would give a rip about anything she does.

Hasn't Kate been 35 for a long time?

Brummygirl said...

It was just under a year ago when we left for England for a vacation and I thought by the time we returned, Kate would be done!!
We now leave for another vacation and I bet she will still be here when we get back!!
Bye GWOP'ers.

About the "rumour" that Jon and Kate might get back together, I feel that it is a "feeler" to get the public's reaction. TLC may offer Jon an outrageous sum to appear on the show, but I hope he's strong enough to resist. If this were ever to occur, the money Jon earns would go right into Kate's purse, under the guise of child support. Jon is putting his life on track and I hope he stays strong. Money alone and culture trips are not what will benefit the kids' lives or what is left of their childhood. Kate's recent appearances where she coyly knocks Jon, I feel that the reappearance of Jon on TV has been already discussed. Stay strong Jon!

He didn't tell anyone that. He tweeted that the entire story was totally untrue.

Can't believe that kate allowed GL to show her supposed sexy white bikini lounge chair picture that PurseBoy took from the balcony.

You would think it would show kate in the picture. No, Poor Mady was sitting on the arm of the chair and was not blocked off. God Bless her!

Just another notch in kate and TLC's child exploitation belt.

so sick of her said...

I see the delusional sheeple, still insist that the kids are not filmed and it is not work. Geez, so the judge in PA is a liar, saying that the kids trip to Aussie is work, but according to sheeple this is not work but that the kids are living life with a little filming. Nothing like stretching the truth(in this case stretching a non-truth). They also think that Kate is a real star/celebrity like Angelina Jolie, or anyone who is on TV. Sorry Kate, Sheeple, reality TV does not make one in the class of real stars/celebs. Has Kate done any real network TV? Doing a skit on TV does not make you an actress. Attending an award show does not make you an actress, neither does DWTS, or appearing on Talk shows. Did you do a movie Kate? NO, you have not. Making Jon & Kate into a movie length doc is not a movie, neither is Kate Plus 8. IT IS REALITY TV. Not real network TV. To call Kate an actress is a slap! to all real actors and actresses, who went to acting school and paid their dues. KATE YOU HAVE NOT EARNED THAT RIGHT, TO BE CALL ACTRESS. GL may have done that as to make fun of Kate, cause, is his show the only one who has refered her as an actress? That award skit she did, was degrading, course, Kate would not know the difference between being made fun of and degrading, cause it got her mug on national TV. If I were her I would have taken offense, it does not put me in a good light. Kate is the joke of Hollywood, just like most of reality so-call stars, they are a joke. I'm fired up and should stay away from sheeple sites, they are one twisted bunch of people. They even twist the truth. JMO

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

to me, that rumor sounded like either something put out by a Kate fan (for some bizarre reason), or floated out there by TLC/Kate's PR people. Of the two of them, Jon is the more likable and I am sure TLC, in casting around for how to fix the ratings slide into oblivion, is thinking back to the "good ole days" when Jon was around to soften Kate's utter hideousness.

Jon - stay free! I don't care how much money they offer, returning to Kate would be the absolutely wrong decision.

so sick of her said...

I know why Kate appears orange. I call a tanning salon and asked. They said it is the lotion she is using. She is either using the lotion incorrect, the wrong type of lotion, or using it as extra, besides the tanning bed. You can't have it both ways. You either use one or the other, not both. I guess Kate is so desparate to look like her kids, she over does it. Wants it instant. Like now. So she ends up looking orange and laughable.

Ampersmom said...

The Sheeple do not believe the kids work. It is just "playing" to them. Like So Sick of Her said...the judge called it work when they had to miss time from school. Missing time from school is not the best thing for kids but may not have bothered me so much IF this was truly an educational trip. But spending time at a pool, horseback riding, waiting around for mom to come out of a shark tank (no worries there Kate, the sharks don't want you either) is not educational. Did you bother do to some serious educational information for them? Not the we went and watch them "dance". Did you explore how Australia was originally a prison? Did you explore this heritage with the kids and the challenges the prisoners had to live with? What about learning of the true natives the Aboriginals? Not the fake tourist things either but the true history. Yeah, I know that answer - it is a resounding NO.

These kids work. Plain and simple. They have become "characters" in their mom's reality show.
The show is scripted, faking Christmas was the dead give away to that. I think that E show gave that away to some who did not know how the kids were scammed. That is why she made that remark on The Talk.

My thought as to why shows like Regis aren't asking her back - last time she was on there she slammed Jon, talked about waiting by the phone for the kids and then jumped on a plane to Mexico. Regis probably did not want a repeat of lies.

Please go back a few years in your memory bank. Before Mr. Lopez told you you were amazingly beautiful.

Did it take a long time to prepare to sit on stage with G. Lopez?

When you were Katie, the patient, you were very pregnant is when I first met you. You told me how much you loved your husband, how kind he was.What a good Dad he was.

I remember being on the elevator with him when he was leaving one night, the doors to the elevator were closing and I ran in. He was leaning against the wall, crying, not sobs but the tears were just running down his face.

Facing the front doors, I finally turned around and said Mr. Gosselin, you have to have faith that we are doing everything we can and Mrs. Gosselin is doing really well.

Know what he said? He worried he could lose you.

These children deserve so much more than they seem to be given as they fought so very hard to survive, remember? I would love to hear or read that you and your former husband are managing to raise these children so that they can see the love you once had for each other.


You laughed easily during those days and cried a lot, but you would light up when your husband arrived.

You did say that with Jon you could get through anything. Brought tears to my eyes too.

Hope that you and the father of your children can arrange a way to not be enemies but work hard to parent your children and have them feel so loved like the type of love you had when you were very pregnant with the sextuplets.

May the day come when there are no more jokes about you, your children and Jon.

Good luck Mrs. Gosselin.

Oh my, that doctor (I think a doctor) that just wrote the post before me, made me feel so bad.
Yes, how do 2 people who are so solid and in love with 2 little girls at home come to this where Kate appears on The Talk to say "she would never say anything bad about her children's father" to George Lopez and have him say you need a man, a latino, not another child and you say "you said it"

That truly is very sad, isn't it?

when you were Katie or Mrs. Gosselin in the hospital waiting for your children to be born and you had love between you and Jon and now, you destroy him and make sure he is broke.

Life is sad, huh?

Hope Kate reads that post.

guess that hospital feels bad about all they did to see it all fall apart. To have children born and destroyed, it is sad.
