Kate who?!! :)

Whatevea said...

Didn't Lopez make fun of KHate several times publicly? Why is she going on this show? THAT desperate for her attention-fix? Weird.

Shoka's Understudy said...

Maybe George will not softball her. TBS is so much bigger than the powers that be at TLC, The Lysol Channel, Sanitized for their Protection!

so sick of her said...

Well, I won't be watching. She has nothing I wish to idolize, learn from or hear about.

Say it aint so said...

That's filmed on the west coast isn't it? Who's watching the kids? The not-a-nanny 3-day-a-week-baby-sitter while they have a father who would jump at the chance to spend time with his children?

TLC must be paying theses shows to have her on to showcase her talents. Will she be the next item up for sale on the Shoppping Channel? This is getting beyond sick, it has reached the pitiful point. Get over it Kate, your 15 mins are up.

Robbie Burns an exceptional Scottish poet said, translated from Gaelic, if only we had the power to use the gift God gave us to see ourselves as other see us.

She just does not get it. She has become a caricature of a mother. Its a shame she has no friends other than paid ones, because someone needs to sit her down and have a face-to-face (I'm not religious but this is my expression)come-to-Jesus-meeting with her. They need to remind her it should be about the kids and what is best for them and her dragging their life out in front of the cameras is not it.

The humble opinion of a mother and grandmother.

George Lopez did make fun of Kate several times on his show. This should be interesting.

WonderButton said...

Go, George, go!

Ohio Buckeye said...

Won't be watching, but will bet the farm that George will soft soap, just like every other tv show host has done, probably per contractual agreement.

I'm enjoying the fact that K8G is SO OVER. She is headlong into her death spiral down the alphabet list. "D List" is but a fond memory for her. Hello, Kate WHO?

Amy too said...

On the East Coast, he is on after Conan, which means if you are up at 1 a.m., maybe you will see the "I'm hanging on by my teeth to stay on TV"

But I think the ship is sinking.

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

My favorite poet of all times. It's best the way he said it:

"O wad some Power the giftie gie us
To see oursels as ithers see us!"

What's really ironic here is that this line comes from his poem, "To A Louse." A louse, of course, is a parasite. Burns saw the insect on the hat of a socialite in church. The point of his writing here is that no matter how upper class one thinks he is, a louse doesn't care. In the "mind" of a parasite, we are all created equal!

-----------------------------------
From several different accounts, the reason Kate has banished everyone from her life (including her husband) is that she will not tolerate anyone trying to tell her one word she does not want to hear. The old expression goes "it's my way or the highway" but for Kate, this is literally how she has operated for years. She seems to be comfortable only dealing with people whom she employs because she must have the final word and things must be done her way. Going so far as to hire 19-20 year old local girls to care for eight kids at once, instead of hiring experienced nannies from a reputable agency. She doesn't want to hear input from a professional, she wants a starstruck young girl who would be much less apt to challenge her.

It's taking a very long time, but I think finally her narcissim and complete focus on herself and her quest for money is finally biting her in the arse. She can go on these talk shows and spin her fairy tales, but America is catching on. IMO the expulsion matter is what finally turned the tides. Instead of going along with the school's plan for helping the two tups, she instead dug in her 5 in. hooker heels. The tups were asked to leave school and the news hit the media. It was more important to her to fight the school than to do what was best for her children and in turn, keep the matter private and out of the news. I think Kate did this because she has been fairly bullet-proof over the last two years and was overly confident in how she could spin it. I don't think she's going to get a pass this time.

Shoka's Understudy said...

Great point about the kids expulsion being the tipping point.

Would love to tip over that lazy cow!

Very well put hayden. kates demise is now going into second gear and is accelerating where your gonna have to shift to go in third gear.

She's almost there!

I am on the east coast also and Conan comes on at 11, and Lopez at midnight.

Please No! said...

I saw that The Lopez show says actress Kate Gosselin on the show tonight.I thought WTH. Please let this just be a joke but I saw someone on twitter say that the rumor is that Kate has done some voice acting (is that how they say it?) for either Pixar or Disney and they're trying to keep it under wraps until the movie comes out this summer. Why is this thing handed everything to her on a platter?? This just better be a joke that TLC is spreading to get ratings for her show when it comes back. Can you Imagine her screechy voice in a kids film? Ugh!

Fannie said...

Kate is on George Lopez and he is saying Jon acted "childish" and she needs a Latino man! He is also making fun of the Ed Hardy clothes. Why are they trashing Jon? Don't they know he has a job now?

She claims to love the show Dexter and Michael C.Hall. Says she watches the show whilst eating salad.

MabelD said...

She looked fat and her eyes were brown, just like WG said they were at the corn maze. She obviously wears blue contacts at times.

such a loser said...

She did look fat. not as cocky as usual, and had nothing of substance to say. still claiming to do it all for the kids, with the help of a babysitter. But she is sure busy shopping for food and doing all the cooking and running up to 8 miles a day...yeah. She mentioned the running to get george to tell her she looks good. And she couldn't bear to do an interview without mentioning the p-people. Umm what paparazzi, kate?

Barb In Nebraska said...

Here is the segment from The Lopez show.

Swissmiss said...

As far as the rumor that Kate may do a voice on an upcoming animated film, she would be perfect for crabby "Lucy" on a Charlie Brown special (if they still make them).

Nasty character. It's 'her' all over.

so sick of her said...

Just read a few of Lopez show. WHAT A LIER KATE IS ON BASHING JON! If I were her and this guy started bashing my ex, I and any good person (christian or not) would have said: please stop, he is the father of my children and I want the bashing to stop. BUT NO! Kate had to agree with him, which shows , she has no class, manners, or respect, is still angry about the divorce, for Jon or her children or anyone, she has not moved on, like she claims. And this oh, I've dated here and there, what with STEVIE BOY? I guess to Kate even talking to a guy is a date. The woman is VERY DELUSIONAL. And dressed like she is 20? Glad I did not watch.

Merrilee said...

George and Kate. My, how his opinion seems to have changed.

chesterctymom said...

EW...why does she sit with her legs open. Trash is trash.

ChurchMouse said...

And this quote from Ms. Gosselin on the George Lopez show just about says it all:

"Umm, well actually my dearest, best friend, we were talking about another friend of ours the other day, who's going through a divorce and she said 'oh, she just needs a rich guy to take care of her' and I said 'you mean like I do?'"

Jane in California said...

Kate's on what I'd consider second-string shows now. Instead of The View, she's on the much lower rated The Talk. Instead of Leno, now she's got a small guest spot on the George Lopez show on a cable network. Her star, which was never anything but media puff to begin with, is most definitely waning.

I'm disappointed in Georgie boy - toeing the company line and making fun of Jon Gosselin while toadying up to Kate. All it shows is that he will sell out in a heartbeat if it means keeping his talk show on the air one more night.

Who knows, maybe someday the great Kate Gosselin will be reduced to appearing on the radio show with the Living the Life mom -- the one she won't even bother responding to now.

Even Tonya Harding is above Kate - at least she's got a regular tv gig, on one of cable's fairly popular shows. Imagine that - Tonya Harding is more successful than you Kate! And probably considered more likable.

Alice Bluegown said...

Kate seems to have told GL that she has dated a little. Now, if she really had, wouldn't you think she would que Chris in on where he would find her and her date?

Kat said...

When she said "she already has 8 and didnt 9" I couldnt help but say outloud WHY WOULD YOU HAVE JUST 1? Isnt that how she ended up with the 6, trying for just 1 more?
Everything out of her mouth is a lie.

Monster Mommy said...

Oh brother...

I caught that comment too. Kart is telling her special BFF Jaime, she's wanting to marry some rich guy that will take care of her. ('Buy me something', barf.)

Flashback... I envision Katie K. at the picnic back in '97 telling her pal she wants to land a wealthy husband... She then ends up settling for the son of a pediatric dentist. I guess so many days spent trolling the halls of the hospital for rich available men, to no avail- can cause a woman to re-evaluate her potential marriage-material wish list.

What a fine example Kate Gosselin is to her young impressionable daughters. "Marry a rich guy that will take care of you, girls." Classy.

kate the fake said...

Poor Jon. She can bash him to the high heavens. Howeever, if he makes a simple tweet people attack him and she wants to sue him.

When is the next court date?

Monster Mommy said...

I forgot to mention, I'm so tired of Kate going on these shows and playing up this phony passive-aggressive shtick. For instance, the host (George Lopez in this case) will say something mean spirited about Jon... then Kate will make a disgusting face and say something like "YOU said it".

Why would they even have her on the show a year after the DWTS gig ended? Is Kate 'going global' begging for a date now? They also decided to bill her on the TV listing, under the guise of an actual actress.

ChurchMouse said...

Ms. Gosselin now wants is a rich fella to take care of her?

Bet that little speech would have gone over well at her church begging tours.

Brummygirl said...

Well.....I just watched the segment. I found it hilarious that most of it was about Kate dating. George Lopez was so cloying, I could have smacked him. The thing that made me laugh was when Kate said "I think you were joking" referring to his previous slaps at Kate. She is so dim at times.
Now you are going to wonder about what I am saying here, but, compared to other interviews, I found Kate to have conducted herself much better when questioned about Jon. Yes, she laughed and passed over the questions, some intimation there, but had I not known anything about her, I would have taken this interview to be fairly normal, speaking about dating.
Not sure if you understand where I am going on this.
The other time I laughed out loud, was when she quoted her BFF, to have said Kate had issues. Boy, she wasn't just referring to the eight kids.
I had so many laughs over this interview. I was prepared to be angry judging by some of the comments here. She ogled some actor at a party...and he left!! That should tell you something Kate.
As for being alone in the house at night scared and watching this actor...hmmmm...that was a lead in for Lopez to ask where her bodyguard was!!
All in all, this interview was mild compared to others. Not sure how popular his show is, but probably she is now at "n"listed.

No Worry, Beef Curry said...

Kate also made sure George aired that posed picture of her laying on the lounge in Australia, poolside in her white bikini. The woman has no shame. The endless sugary flirting with the newly single host made my stomach hurt.

Speaking of which.... they should have pulled up the other photos on this day, were there is a mysterious marsupial-like pouch of orange skin flapping in the wind, just below her creepy bellybutton.

She told George she always takes the kids to the store, etc. etc. I'm pretty certain they only go to the Giant and Target when TLC is filming an episode. This record is broken.

logical said...

I posted a comment on TBS site that was put on the site for maybe 6 minutes total before it was pulled. Ill say it here too I will not watch george lopez again.

Tami said...

Just saw the youtube clip that was posted. It is clear from this particular one that she is plugging the grocery store thing they were just reported as filming. She had to throw in that bit about grocery shopping, and something else was odd. It's almost like the interviewers are told ahead of time to point out that she raises her kids and does not use babysitters much. Why else would he have brought this up JUST like they did on the clip of The Talk? It's a plant! It gives her the opportunity to say 'oh I only use sitters half the week. This has to be a new thing. In the past I think it's clear she had multiple nannies full time. They must have cut her back when the show stopped airing so many episodes. I'm sure Jon would roll his eyes if he heard her say she rarely uses sitters. Plus, she is yet again going on about how she needs a man, needs a date. She is trying so hard to get herself another show; a dating show! She knows that stupid Twist of Kate thing is not going to take off and she'll take whatever she can get! They have to set it up now to make it look like she is a hand's on, full time mom so on her dating show it can add so many "interesting" plots. Puhleaze..

Tami said...

I'm glad she was on GL and not Conan. It's easy to say I'll never watch GL again. I don't like it anyway. I would lose all respect for Conan if he had her on and treated her as George Lopez did. And that would be a shame because I've always liked his show. It's good that she has gone D list. I just wish she'd fall off the list altogether.

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

There is no dating show, and there will not be a dating show because no network would touch her. If it's true that TLC is stringing her along because it's waiting to see the ratings for the April show, then why in the world would TLC want to launch her in another show? Twisted Kate is not even alive in the water. Why would TLC risk a failure? In addition, WHO would pick up a dating show with her involved, given her past failures at everything else...the Paula Deen thing, the clothing line, the book sales? Networks want profits, not losses. She's history, and all of the execs know it.

Gaby said...

I watched the clip last night. Something that she said that sounded strange. GL mentioned how he tried to keep the votes coming for Kate when she was on DWTS. Then Kate said something like You and my kids got me through(votes) then she mumbled something like .."not my fans".

This was a dig at Jon being the '9th child'...GL was asking her about dating, and she threw that little diddy in there...she wasn't referring to a CHILD, she was referring to a MAN.

*********
But the person that matters in this does not know it..SHE does not know it! She will do whatever she can to keep her "fame" alive. She tried to be the cooking mom, tried to be the organizing mom. Fail, fail, fail. She is trying to get a dating show. The things she chooses to discuss in every interview indicate that.

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

Kate's not the most intelligence person on the planet, but I don't think that even she is that clueless as to think that she is still in high demand. If she were, she'd have offers thrown at her from all sides, and she must be aware that it's not happening, and in order to get her own show, a network is going to want to take a chance on it. I wonder what reason TLC gave her for the demise of Twisted Kate, a show that was supposed to premiere in the spring, and as far as we know, may never see the light of day.

path said...

I thought the whole slap/kiss thing was staged. It even looked to me like Kate was thinking out loud in her head--how to do this?--no rehearsing?--lift hand to slap, then grab face--then kiss--she looked very nervous to me--and like the DWTS fiasco dancing--when it comes to the performance, she chokes. It looked so awkward.

The entire interview was more of the same. OK, we got it she is single, she has 8 kids, she runs, she goes on trips, she shops, she wears bikinis, she cannot dance, she hates her ex-husband--blah, blah, blah what more does the viewing public need?

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

Kate is supposedly OCD (although that has been debated). How could she kiss a stranger on the cheek, one probably sweaty and wearing make-up? Betcha she played a "Monk" and asked for a wipe as soon as she got off stage.

Shoka's Understudy said...

Too bad kate didn't have a flashback of Jon's face right when GL told her she could slap him.

GL would got a good "love tap".

Unfortunately everyone is getting their own reality shows lately. There have been so many it's ridiculous. The homeless guy Ted Williams is getting a show. Someone is taking a chance on him? Seems risky to me. He didn't even want to finish rehab and appears to still drink. Why would anyone want to watch a show about some of the people out there who have them? Someone would be stupid enough to give that cow a show. If TLC thought she was a lost cause, they would not send her on trips and would have canceled her show already.

The Dating Game said...

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

Okay. Then what happened to Twist of Kate? Did they see that as a lost cause? Could it be that TLC sees that it's the kids who are the moneymakers; therefore, Kate going solo in Twisted, or in a dating show, would not be profitable for them?

*********
They have not given up on her. They are trying for whatever they can get. They put out feelers for Twist of Kate and saw that it was not going to work. They still shop her out wherever they can. They know that with all the backlash of the kids continuing to be on tv that it's all going to blow up soon. They don't want to lose Kate and clearly SHE is bucking for a dating show whether it's with TLC or some other sucker.

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

Why do you think TLC doesn't want to "lose Kate"? You agreed that TLC is aware of the negative public opinion about Kate for insisting that filming with the children continue; and we can all see that Twist of Kate was canned because the network probably couldn't get any sponsors for the show.

So where is the great benefit to TLC to keep Kate? I would agree that TLC wants to make money off those kids as long as they can squeeze it out of them -- and the same would apply to Kate -- but I can't see where Kate is truly much of an audience draw for them.

However, I would agree that TLC would want to:
a) help Kate keep in control of the children vs. Jon
b) manipulate Kate into doing what they want re filming of the kids. This one is pretty easy - because as long as TLC helps fund people for Kate to order around, puts her in front of a camera so she can talk at it, and pays for purse boy's presence - Kate will probably agree to just about anything.

They have not given up on her.
****************************
It's the kids they haven't given up on. Without them, T.L.C. would have put her on the cutting floor long ago.

In her mind:....

She is a wonderful mother

She is beautiful

She is a "Star"

Reality: She is no longer relevant but her children are. T.L.C. is going to wring every nickle out they spent on her. The bottom line is, whatever Kate gets for appearances, T.L.C. gets more and keeps her in the limelight in order to film the kids.
They must believe they have enough Sheeple interest and public backlash to keep it going.
What next...is she going on the Muppets? Better cover those girls up Kate if you do, Miss Piggy does not like competition!!

Jane in California said...

In response to Tami's comment that everyone seems to be getting a reality tv show, and thus it might seem that Kate will surely continue to be on a reality tv show for a long time to come:

I'm no expert in how networks choose their line-ups, but looking at this in a common sense way, it seems to me that networks are always looking for the next "big" show, something new that will draw in viewers (at least for awhile).

What sponsors want are high ratings, so that they feel they are getting the most value for their advertising dollars.

The reality about most television shows, reality or otherwise, is that if they don't remain fresh, their viewership drops over time, until the networks decides not to renew for a further season.

What is fresh or new about Kate Plus 8? Are we seeing ratings numbers remain high, or gradually moving downward? Is Kate gaining fans or losing them? Do people feel sorry for the children and be therefore less likely to watch the show?

Could Kate spin off into her own show? I think we've seen the answer to this one - TLC and their sponsors were apparently not willing to invest beyond filming a trial episode of Twist of Kate, after which it was shelved.

Why invest in a person who has a high unlikability factor, is hard to work with, has many expensive demands, when there are (as you pointed out) so many other people eagerly ready to sign up on the cheap for a reality show of their own?

It's always an equation, and at some point, the scale will tip too heavily into the negative for Kate and she'll be dropped by TLC. Another network may consider picking her up, but for nowhere near the money she is making now, and probably it would be for one season, after which it would be dropped due to dismal ratings.

I remain confident that Kate's reality stardom will be fading, sooner rather than later. She'll probably put the final nails in the coffin by doing something extremely vulgar and outrageous when she freaks out over her fading D-list celebrity-ness.

Cutting Mama Loose said...

Tami said,

"They have not given up on her. They are trying for whatever they can get."

--------

I don't agree. I think if they could cut her loose and stick with only the kids, they would do it in a minute. However, she comes with the package and they are stuck with her. She's no longer the draw. Sure, they like controversy, but the negativity that she generates is wearing very thin, and if given the chance, she'd be long gone.

Zoe said...

Maybe Kate herself put an end to Twist of Kate by refusing to "walk in other's shoes". I can see TLC wanting to put Kate in uncomfortable situations knowing there would be drama and controversy, thus drawing in all the train wreck viewers. And I can see Kate refusing to take part, especially if she had that right under her contract for Twist of Kate. Maybe her little tantrum while camping in Alaska was the nail in the coffin.

Kateminusabrain said...

Horrible, ugly dress. Can she adjust those straps anymore??? Ugly hair... flirting and laughing super fake at his jokes! Yuck... she is so fake. Reminds me of a high schooler, not a mother of 8 kids. She is about as deep as a puddle of pee.

The kids are really no longer a draw. They are simply an ordinary bunch of kids now.

Six babies and two little girls were interesting.

Eight ordinary kids? Nope...don't think so.

barbee said...

She's a dead dog and WHY would tlc want to keep showing the kids? Notice them in the 'shopping trip'? See anything interesting there? They are not doing anything worth watching, they are not exceptionally attractive kids, they do NOT exude personality, so, again, WHY keep filming them? The stuff they are doing is lame; i.e., running up the 'Rocky Stairs' (which we haven't even seen yet, if ever), milling around her at the pool in Australia (sure bet that looks real different from any pool in the States), shopping in a candy store (DITTO), riding a horse, walking in an airport, ... come on, where's the interest?

We don't want to see the kids BECAUSE we don't want to see them WORKING, and we don't want to see 'her' because, well, just because! Someone wrote a great song for her, "The Party's OVER". And George Burns coined a great phrase for her "Say goodnight, Katie!" (literary license taken)

MeMeME ME Me Etc Etc said...

I heard something I forget where, the other day: "When are they going to learn--it's all about ME?????"
The minute I heard it, I chuckled and thought of Khate Gosselin. (the original item had nothing to do w/her HateNess)

Tami said...

The ratings have dropped. So I agree, TLC SHOULD want to get rid of her. My theory is that they are afraid of what she knows. They are afraid that when she's eventually done she will talk too much. They wanted to keep Jon under contract and control him for as long as they possibly can. I don't think they kids draw all that much of an interest. People want to see the ridiculous way she acts, the controversy. I also don't know why The View, Regis, ET, etc, wanted her on after her ratings and popularity were tanking (not to mention People magazine!). Even if her star has faded and her ratings slipped, there is still this perception from many that she is still a huge ratings draw for her appearances on things other than Kate&8. When she is no longer booked on anything and no longer appears on any tabloid website I'll believe TLC has stopped paying for her PR and pushing her out there in the public.

Shoka's Understudy said...

kate is an abomination. kid slave driver, unconvicted husband slapper, fake is as fake does GL show and bashes Jon even more.

She said on GL, when I was shopping with the kids the other day.....
this means it was taped in advance and she knew that they were going to Giant the day that GL was aired and people would see the pics of the trip in the tabloids.
so the public would be impressed-ish!

I think PurseBoy took some of them, but a Twitter person took a picture and posted it on Twitter and said, the witch is blocking the aisle. So proud of her for taking the picture and posting it on Twitter.

I would love to see the designated parking space dedicated to the uber birthing mother kate gosselin.

path said...

Before new shows air on TV, they usually are "tried out" on small focus groups. I attended one of these back in the '70's. I can't believe TLC would launch a new show-a new Kate show-with all the negative buzz about her without doing this. I can't imagine any show would would have any other outcome except Kate melting down or bossing someone around. Boring! These reality stars loose their luster fast.

trulurker said...

It is my opinion that TLC is filming/paying Kate not to produce a show, although they will use what they can get. It is my opinion that TLC wants to keep Kate in the fold because if she left she might wake up to the fact that Jon and Kate were very poorly represented when they first signed on, and the kids were not represented at all. I think TLC is avoiding a law suit that might really establish rights for children on reality TV. The longer Kate is in the fold, the poorer her chances of claiming she did not understand what she was signing. It is cheaper for TLC to keep Kate paid. That is their business decision, IMO. I feel some of the Gosselin 8, when they turn 18 will take the opportunity to sue TLC and Figure 8. And I hope they win their suits!

Susantoyota said...

I finally broke down and watched the Lopez clip. How can Kate look so slim in jeans when picking up the kids and like a sausage in the dress she wore on the show? Oh well.

Anyway, I noticed something on the Lopez clip. My computer runs slow so the video would stop briefly. It seemed to do so at points that would show George's face in a freeze frame. I think the first time was when he was guiding Kate to her seat. Her back was to the camera and he was looking at the audience with a smirk?--like we're going to get thru this guys and then move on to the fun. There were a couple other times that his facial expressions spoke volumes, but it was very quick and Kate didn't seem to notice. I'm not defending George Lopez, but I agree with the other posters that he may not have much control over who is booked on his show due to the 'politics' in show business. I also didn't hear much clapping or laughter from the audience. I'd go back and watch it again, but it's too early in the morning.

I think Kate is freaking out on several levels. More people are aware of her grifting, narcissistic personality, and abusive behavior towards the kids. I think she and TLC is desperate to keep her in the public eye, so that is behind the appearances (and trip with Purseboy)and 'news' items on the Internet about getting back together with Jon, running a marathon, etc. She'd be better off making plans to downsize her house and expenses as I don't think she'll be in that house next year.

I have a theory as to why we won't ever see 'Twist of Kate'.
The premise of the show is that she visits women around the country who have problems and helps them. Apart from the fact that she isn't qualified to offer any help, that role calls for someone who is caring, kind, compassionate and altruistic - and that ain't Kate.
She isn't even a good enough actress to fake it.

There was a rumor here from someone (a local) who reported that there were many real estate showings at the house. Cars from out-of-state were congregating on a daily basis to view the property. The poster had said that the house was listed privately by a New York company. I believe that the poster was asked to identify the firm selling the property, but no response was given, and the rumor that the house is for sale was never confirmed.

I agree -- that mortgage will soon be out of her reach, once the TLC gravy train is no longer around. She's foolish to think her income will remain at this level for always. There are numerous former pro athletes and other celebrities who have had their homes foreclosed upon, had to sell at a loss, etc., because their star had fallen. If Kate thinks she's somehow immune, more fool she.

I don't agree. I think if they could cut her loose and stick with only the kids, they would do it in a minute. However, she comes with the package and they are stuck with her.

Just curious, what exactly do you think they would do with only the kids? Not much talent there either.

If people on the show are afraid to talk because of Confidentiality Agreements they signed, there is NO WAY IN HELL she can ever talk once her contract is up. They will have all kinds of things she signed prohibiting her from opening her big mouth and talking out of both sides of it at once!

I totally disagree with having the kids without Kate. The kids should be kept out of any future activities and left alone. TLC shouild cut them loose and let them be kids!!!!

I think you misunderstood. Nobody is advocating TLC cut Kate loose and film the children. The point was that Kate is nothing without the children, but she comes with the package. The children most definitely should not be filmed and should be allowed to enjoy a normal childhood, free of the cameras.
