Like I said on the other thread: bashing Jon, expelled kids, Aussie trip, purseboy(I found my man), Twisted Kate, or poor single mom crap, or the E! show. Take your pick. We know she is gonna whine/bitch/complain/cry about something. Or everybody is SO mean to me. Hey, Kate you brought this on yourself.

Write to The Talk, tell them if they want to maintain viewership, no more soft interviews w/ Kate. Ask that they confront her, give her interview to Sharon, she takes no BS. Tell the Talk to do their homework. http://www.cbs.com/info/user_services/fb_global_form.php

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

As if it would do any good. When has there EVER been a hard interview done? TLC is never going to allow it. They'd cancel her appearance before that would ever happen.

What if Joan Rivers remark is true? Kate is/has moved to NYC? Kate has been too quiet, now out of nowhere she appears on a talk show? All these months? The rumours have been flying about the house for sale, and now this show, which she was not chosen for, now wants her to guest on. Someone here or at the other web-site, said that someone on the Talk quit, so a spot is open? I certainly would not watch, if Kate is on there. Kate only knows things to the tip of her nose, she never bothers to explore anything thoroughly. I don't think Kate has ever read a book, just the back cover or cliff notes. This is how she is with everything. JMO

QUESTION: What one thing do these women have in common?:

Sara Gilbert
Sharon Osbourne
Holly Robinson Peete
(WHO IS Leah Remini??)
Kate Gosselin

ANSWER: Not a one of them has any chance at all of being able to sufficiently pique my interest enough to bother to tune in, muchless watch an entire show.

K8G is continuing her long overdue and inevitable slide right down the alphabet list: I'd say she's at about an G Lister at this point.

Already sent mine. Just because it seems they don't listen, doesn't mean we shouldn't try. I asked them to not be like all the other shows and to stop being her platform for further parental alienation and child exploitation.

I'd be happy with that. lol

Brummygirl said...

Whenever she disappears and there is silence, she re-appears on a show.
Have never heard of The Talk and certainly will not watch it.
Kate...desperate is as desperate does!!
Now if Ozzie Osbourne was on there with Kate, that would be a hoot. He actually comes from my home town in England. Not that I usually own up to that one!! :)

CakeIsGreat said...

Hasn't Sharon Osbourne gone on record saying she regrets the reality show? I remember reading something in which she said she couldn't believe as a mother, she allowed her childrens lives to fall apart on TV and let the public get a negative image of them. She will lose so much credibility if she sits there propping Kate, and not saying about her experience. I have respect for Sharon, I'll hold out a little hope she will actually talk seriously to Kate. But I'm not expecting it. Kate wouldn't be going on a show to answer real questions. I wonder if this appearance means there's an episode coming up?

Oh well. I have never seen this talk show, and never planned on checking it out since I watch One Life To Live at that time, religiously.

Shoka's Understudy said...

If anybody would say anything against kate it would be sharon osborne and sarah gilbert.

sharon and sarah are really momma bears with their kids. They would fight to the death to protect them.

Holly would too, as she fights to raise money and awareness for her child's medical issues.

Not gripe about your very small son having to inconvienence you to have to take him to a eye dr. and get him glasses. I was happy to get my son his glasses when he needed them. He was running stop signs and red lights.

Joan Rivers was making a joke about kate pretending to move to NYC. She said that if they had another terrorist attack, that everybody could hide in her uterus. She said this on George Lopez, the other night.

Leah Remini was Zack Morris's girlfriend on Saved by the Bell and she plays the wife on The King of Queens.

fidosmommy said...

Leah Remini - played Carrie Hefferner on King of Queens, the wife of the Kevin James character.

Tami said...

I didn't think these women were stupid fools, but I am getting the feeling it will be like all the others--"Oh it's so hard being a mom! How do you do it all with 8 kids??!" Maybe even some insults thrown at Jon. Not watching by the way!

Tami said...

*******
Yes, well she has said that the cameras were VERY intrusive when she was talking about their show and that her older daughter had refused to participate, which was obvious when viewing it.

Tami said...

I was just thinking earlier today that since she is such non-news now that no shows would have any interest at all in booking her. Gee, guess I was wrong!

Ampersmom said...

I put my "two cents" in to The Talk. Whether or not there is follow through on their part is beyond my control. But at least I tried. I did ask them to question her on the hard parts...love offerings, the "fake wedding", showing her kids potty training for pedophiles were some of my examples to them. Let's see what happens..
BTW when I went to the link for the Talk (http://www.cbs.com/daytime/the_talk/ ), Guests for 15th only show Cindi Lauper, Kate isn't even advertised.

Barbra said...

What brought up that she is going to be on The Talk? Can't find any reference to it anywhere. That show must be hard up for guests if they want or need someone who has no talents to promote and adds nada to any discussions.

Exhausted said...

I guess my thread belongs here, so I thought I'd copy half of it:

Maybe I don't know my daytime TV, but The Talk doesn't seem nearly as huge as Today, The View, or Regis and Kelly. Or is it? Has she fallen out of favor of the really good shows? Hope so. And isn't this the show that's set up very similar to the Paula Deen pilot that Kate bombed? I bet that has to be a tiny stab in the gut...even for a narcissist!

so sick of her said...

Here are 2 e-mail addresses, that have Kate listed:
www.locatetv.com/tv/talk/7016896

www.interbridge.com/lineupsdate.hmtl

the second e-mail gives you all the tv talk show lineup all week.

I'm having a hard time understanding your point of views. Most people here said that they did not care what K8 does, as long as it keeps the kids from filming. I don't recall that on any of her pity party appearances that she flashed the kids pictures. Maybe she is on her way...solo. Just don't watch and eventually she will fade. The more you protest to all of the venues that engage her, the more she stays in the public's eye. Even negative publicity is publicity that keeps her going. Every time a show advertises that she will be on, that show gets attention.

Talk The Talk said...

Messaging The Talk could very well have a reverse effect. By getting e-mails, they see how much alive Kate still is in the media and on blogs. For them, this means she's still revelant and that people do care and WILL STILL WATCH (the train wreck factor). That's what they care about -- viewers, not the fact that people are disgusted with her. Viewers will watch Kate behaving badly, and the more exposure she gets (by appearing on The Talk), the more viewers.
By sending your opinions to them is just reinforcing what they need to hear -- that she's still news-worthy!

Sharon O was on the Ellen show long ago. They played a game which involved Ellen showing photos to Sharon. One photo was the Gosselins or Kate and Sharon flung it away and said that's just wrong.

Jane in CA said...

I remember one time when Sharon Osbourne was a guest on The Ellen Show. Ellen showed her pictures, one at a time, of various well known people and Sharon would say whatever came to her mind. When Ellen held up a picture of Kate, Sharon made a face and shook her head (as if in disgust). I think she even took the picture away from Ellen and tossed it aside. The audience applauded and laughed.

JoyinVirginia said...

The one day I checked out The Talk, they had a mom and kid from that horrible Toddlers and Tiaras show, so I switched the channel.
There is probably some connection with Discovery or the parent corporation. These gals know reality, but probably will go soft to avoid biting the hand that will scratch their collective backs if they play nice.
I LOVE Julie Chen, the Chenbot hostess from Big Brother, the guiltiest of ALL guilty summer pleasures! Love Sharon, like Sara, like Holly, and I find Leah somewhat abrasive and vaguely irritating. I wonder if Ms. Kreider has been briefed on who everyone is? Julie is married to Les Moonves, the head of CBS. Even that could not save her from sitting thru an annoying 5 year old "beauty queen" performance, poor thing.

********

There was the couch interview with Natalie Morelos where Kate had baseball card sized pictures of her kids tucked behind her under a pillow. She pulled them out, spread them out on the couch seat, and started weeping. She didn't say anything, but kept fiddling with her right ear. We all thought it looked like she was
trying to hear what was being said in her earpiece, and that someone was piping in things to say about each of the kids. Of course we don't really know what was going on, but it sure looked like that's what it was. It was pretty pathetic.

Talk The Talk said...

**********

Exactly. We must have been writing our posts at the same time. They are most likely sitting on their collective behinds watching to see how many protests come in. The more, the better. It just reinforces the fact that people will be watching to see what disgusting diatribe she's going to pull off.
Best not to call attention to it (and her) and just let it die a peaceful death. You know darn well they are not going to call her out on anything, and that she knows what is going to be asked. It's scripted. TLC would not have it any other way and do you honestly think that this interview is going to be any different from any others?

Just My Few Canadian Cents said...

Was 'The Talk' the show that Kate auditioned for? If I remember correctly, she cried during her audition when she spoke about her children. And I think Paula Deene was involved as well. Is this the same show?

Video of kids crying,"daddy don't go!" said...

OMG. I just watched the video of the kids screaming, "daddy don't go," when Jon drops them off at the end of the driveway. I have to say, that was heartbreaking. Here's the link if you've never seen it:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TLWZH91VYY&feature=related

What kind of a society allows this to go on? TLC, please wake up. You will regret when the kids get older and point the finger at you for exposing their lives to the world. TLC, here's a thought: Why don't you start a show called, "The Children of TLC Execs?"

Sad, that these kids were dealt these cards. Kate is still booking appearances and pressing forward with her desire to be a star. I guess the moral of the story for the Gosselin kids is just that "Life Isn't Fair." They will just have to accept their fate(s).

Mystical said...

Sigh ~ Kate's appearance on this show will be like all the rest of the shows she has made appearances on. The ill-informed, lazy hosts will drone on over how impressive it is that Kate manages to care for 8 kids all by herself. Of course that is a false statement.....but no one ever does their research on this woman. Then Kate will surely fire off some more lies on how she is the sole income source for the family & how Jon just recently started spending time with the kids (and they would rather be home with her (blah, blah, lie after lie). Too aggravating to think about, let alone watch. Kate is a wretched mother and human being. When will she get her dues in life?

Amoral said...

You will regret when the kids get older and point the finger at you for exposing their lives to the world.

TLC will regret it, or Kate will regret it? TLC is too busy counting how much money it made off these kids to regret anything. It doesn't have a conscience. It is a money-making business. Morals don't enter into it.

Kate regret it? I seriously doubt that. She might regret it when it ends, but regret making money off the kids? No way!

JDS said...

I believe the best way to make an impact if you want to write to the show is to tell them you won't be watching the show when they have her on.

The executives behind the show and advertisers want a big audience and would not be thrilled if people would not watch a show if she were on.

****************************
Everyone has a conscience(except for a few socio/psychopaths out here in the world).

They can all enjoy the riches and the spoils they receive now, but I guarantee you, when all of the damage that has been done to these kids manifests itself as rage, anger, drug use, abuse, bullying, thoughts of suicide, etc., the ones responsible for perpetuating this situation will most surely pay dearly. It's inevitable. It's an unseen force in the world, that somehow always comes to collect it's dues... It's called Kharma.

Not to mention the fact that the damgage is "times 8." What are the odds that these kids grow up having nothing but respect and adoration for TLC, especially after the way they have treated their father? I'm going with slim to none.

I love calling TLC "it" instead of "they", that's funny!:)It takes away thier human side...fitting.

The Talk? What is THat? said...

I had never even HEARD of this "show" (The Talk?) until reading this blog, so maybe if more ppl also have not even heard of it,= less viewers. KWIM? I mean I will NOT be watching regardless (I eschew ALL things KHate) I just will try and read about it later , here. Thanks Mods!

Tami said...

I just thought of something: Kelly Osborne really seems to dislike Kate. Surely if this is the case she would have discussed the matter with her mother. Maybe Sharon will not be so soft on Kate? One can only hope!

***********
For one thing, she is NOT going on any show to promote anything that she herself is doing independent of the kids. What does she go on for then? To complain and lie about Jon and custody/court issues, to plug Kate&8 which exploits the kids, or any other special they appeared on such as Sarah Palin--again exploiting the kids, or plugging some lame book that yet again exploits the kids. So I don't see what is positive about her going on these shows. THey are not calling her there for her personal talents.

Pattypanda said...

I just send email to CBS investor relations and Mr. Moonves: I've enjoyed The Talk since it started in the fall. Much more civilized than the View. Please do not let Kate Gosselin make a laughing stock of the ladies by having an interview with no integrity and no substance. She has gotten away with her lies on the Today show too many times. Kate is not a nice person. Be sure to have some investigation and background done before she is "interviewed" this week. These ladies, Sharon, Holly, Julie, Sara have been doing a great job, don't let them flounder now. Please continue to help them succeed. There are many facts that can be verified as truths as to how horrible of a person/mother she is. Her kids need help and need to be off TV and get their childhood back. You do not sell out your son, think of it as a reward for all children to have as good a life as Charlie. He does not work to support his family, neither should the Gosselin children work to support their mother's extravagant lifestyle of hair extensions, boob jobs and fake tanning. Kate was a nurse, in most people's opinion that is an honorable career, which she can go back to if she chooses to work, not exploit.

Kate's Cart said...

Send a tweet to @MissKellyO so she can make sure her mom know what/who Kate Gosselin is.

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

Here's the reality people. Kate Gosselin is an enigma. She is like no one else before her. That is why she gets air time. For no other reason than she stands alone. You cannot compare her to anyone else out there on reality TV. No other reality person has ever stirred up this much contraversy. EVER. As much as it pains me to have to say it, and believe me, it is killing me to write this, she will always get air time just because she is Kate Gosselin. Kate has the look for TV. She just does. She is attractive. And that is why she is always on TV. She IS more attractive than the mothers of the other sets of multiple births out there. She just is. She has the Hollywood look going on, thanks to Ted Gibson and the other TLC minions. So I have just come to accept Kate will always be on TV and her looks have a lot to do with it. But I have never forgotten that we still have the eight children to consider and what their futures hold. The sheeple tend to live in the moment and clearly do not care to consider the future.

I was reading that Vanity Fair article again when she was saying how comfortable she was on TV blah, blah, blah. That is because she was just being herself. Hell, I could do that. How egocentric that would be. Me just being me, not having to study scripts and have coaches showing me what to do and still getting paid tons of cash. Me, just saying it like it is and having my fans think I was so cool and honest and real. Well folks, that is why she fails to get the real gigs out there. Because, as we have said before, she has no talent. And most of us hate the fact that all she wants to do is talk about herself. I laugh when I think about the time she did the Emmy gig and she told some people she has had a taste of the acting world and wants to do more. I still have that scene in my mind when she faced Jimmy Fallon and we witnessed her Oscar performace. It was tragic. "I'm a good dancer, right?". OMG Kate. You have a long way to go sweetheart.

An idea? said...

So why don't we hope that Kate gets a job on The Talk and maybe she will discontinue Kate Plus 8?

We Didn't Start The Fire said...

Kate's Cart said...

Send a tweet to @MissKellyO so she can make sure her mom know what/who Kate Gosselin is.

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

Save the tweets. She's known for a long time who Kate is. Sharon was on "Ellen" and when shown a photo of Kate, she threw down the photo and said something like, "That's wrong," and wouldn't comment any further. I remember thinking at the time that Sharon played her cards right, didn't elaborate, but everyone knew exactly what she thought of Kate.

I really don't think that the purpose of this show is to dig dirt on Kate Gosselin or serve as an expose on child exploitation! It will be a fluff interview because TLC will not allow anything else! It will be scripted. She will come with prepared answers because she will know in advance the subject matter discussed. She will cover up the expulsion story; talk about how uncomfortable she was during the Alaska camping trip; gush over the Australia trip and once again regurgitate how educational these trips are for the kids, ad nauseum.

I'm not so sure what is so difficult to understand about that. Her lies are not going to be exposed. They will not name her as Worst Mother of the Year. Can you imagine the slander suits that would ensue if this were to happen? TLC would have its attorneys drafting the complaint before the show is over!

I hope to heaven she spits out the gum before she goes on the set.

Jane in CA said...

It will be a fluffy interview, but hopefully it will be brief and at or near the end of the show. I think most people are so over Kate Gosselin.

BTW - has her appearance been confirmed? Last time I checked, I didn't see anything about it on their website.

Yes, yes and yes.

That is the interview, right there. All that is missing is the poorly chosen outfit and terrible speaking skills.

Other than that, wrap it up and slap a bow on it.

Barbra said...

Sharon's 'comment' on being shown kate's picture (throwing it aside) on Ellen's show was a direct copy of kate's actions with the letters viewers sent in with questions, read it and toss it to the ground. We all know that there will be no REAL interview on The Talk, it will just be the 'girls' talking with kate and her 'girls'. No one is allowed to ask her any derogatory questions and she isn't capable of answering even the most simple questions so, of course, couldn't handle any really hard ones.

They are "working moms" in show business too said...

Jane in CA said...

BTW - has her appearance been confirmed? Last time I checked, I didn't see anything about it on their website.

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

They only advertise the first guest. She will probably only be there for one segment. Not enough to talk about much. She'll just say the kids are doing a lot better, and that they're all happy.

These women on The Talk probably have nannies caring for THEIR kids, so they probably won't attack Kate for her decisions. They want to avoid the "pot calling the kettle black" statements/emails that they most likely will get from their viewers.

I think they'll support her, because they too are "working moms" in show business. Best thing for us ALL to do IS NOT WATCH.

Just an excuse to be with Steve on Valentines said...

I think Kate scheduled this interview for February 15th just to have an excuse to be with Steve for Valentines. We'll see who accompanies her on her trip. Surely they could get a stand in bodyguard so that Steve can be with his "wife" on Valentines.

Pattypanda said...

Not one picture of Kate heading to LA or in LA or in NYC for her latest tune up. Just proves she does not need a body guard. Steve is her boyfriend and handler.

BeyondSIlly Now said...

Re. the Valentine's Day theory of Steve (again) being monopolized by KHate: You know what? IMO if Gina Neild doesn't care or do something to stop this garbage by now, then so be it! If she is willfully letting such nonsense go on at this late date, then my sympathy is Gone and she deserves any further embarrassment or angst she gets. It's beyond ridiculous now, even IF there is "no real affair." What kind of sane wife would continue with this? Ans: none in the "REAL world."!

I Heart Buffy said...

Sharon, Leah (SO annoying) & Julie Chen all do the interviews. Hopefully, Sharon will be herself & really throw the gauntlet down. She really does not seem to care who she pisses off, like her daughter Kelly, whom I adore. I hope this isn't some sappy V-day segment. I hope this is a true interview with hard-hitting questions, but knowing how Kate/TLC rolls, it will be lie-fest. Sharon O. sees right through that crap though. Let's all watch Kate crash & burn when her beloved ear piece goes wonky, or when Sharon asks her a question that wasn't on the pre-approved list. HA!

I also agree with the posters who say let it go. Do NOT give ammunition to the shows by tweeting, emailing, etc, giving Kate more relevance. She is NOTHING. She hasn't been in the rags, on the internet, nothing. Let her go. I thought this is what we all wanted. Yay!! Ba-bye!!

Protect8 said...

KG might increase ratings for The Talk but the show has low ratings and difficulty finding its demographic. Whether GWOPers watch or not isn't going to give Kate a new show or more money.

No doubt with any appearance that KG makes, there is a contract that specifies plenty of off limit questions.

So it's almost too easy to figure out exactly what Kate is going to say because it will be like every other interview she has done.

But I will watch with high hopes that the hosts of The Talk decide to put their show on the map by asking direct, honest and challenging questions rather than throw the softballs. Kate is only prepared to give pat answers. Her reaction alone, even w/o talking, would be revealing.

It would be a very effective way for The Talk to get some national coverage.

It was confirmed Friday on twitter, TheTalk_CBS.

It's the day after Valentine's day. Don't most people ask what you did for the special occasion? If one of the hosts brings it up, what will Kate say?

Ive never seen the show, never heard of it, but it has been renewed, so I guess the ratings haven't been so low that it wasn't redeemable. This article says that the ratings have improved:

My cable network says that Kate Gosselin IS scheduled to be on The Talk this Tuesday. I guess no one else wants her at this point. I know Ellen sure doesn't want her back on her show. Speaking of which... Sharon Osbourne better get real with this witch. You know she doesn't like her.

Proof? I've got it!

No Worry, Beef Curry said...

Perhaps Kart needs another television outlet in order to spew her perpetual lies, besides The Today Show and The View. (I've noticed she finally 'STFU'd ' on her Kate's Take Blog-- at least since last November, anyway.)

She will more than likely be dispelling more rumors about her wonky fake boobs.... creepy botox, spray tanning rituals, and continual parking in the fire lane....

"Um, like it's not per say umm... like the fire lane - fire lane... it's a special designated Gosselin Family mail acceptance area, which umm... is specifically posted for um Kate Gosselin."

Please just shut the hell up already. We get it.... You're lonely, you need help, you have eight kids, and the *fat taters* are real. You all know I'll be busy typing a sweet n' sassy letter to the ladies on The Talk right now, about airing her on their program.

Im pissed! I love "THE TALK" and now they had to go and ruin it for me by having that witch on. I emailed them already about it.
Disgusted!

SameOld,SameOld said...

I'll be disappointed in The Talk if at least one of them doesn't question the involvement of the kids in a reality show.

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

...and what will be the outcome if they do? You know darn well all she is going to do is say that it's reality, they're playing in front of the camera, the kids love the crew (they missed them so much they cried), they are afforded the most amazingish opportunities, crap, crap and more crap...

Why would this be any different? Same old spiel. You know exactly what is going to come out of her mouth.

****************************
"As you know, I do everything for my 8...count 'em 8 kids, so we spent the day making Valentine cards and heart shaped cookies. It is one of our traditions.
Honestly ironically, it brought back memories when the REAL Jon and I did this together. I am really lonely, depending on the day, and hoped by this Valentine's I would have found a new relationship.
No, there is nothing between Steve Neild and I, other than friendship, purse carrying, babysitting and bed warming. To qualify that, he turns on my electric blanket, I do hate to get into a cold bed.
I can no longer rely on anyone, I have to work as I am the only one contributing to my children's future. I am open to any talk show hostings.
No, my children were not expelled.
They were having difficulty with their father abandoning us and were acting out at school, so I decided to take them out for a short while. Yes, they are doing wonderfully now, I spend all my time coaching them.
Err....umm...no, they are with nannies at the moment so I could attend here, I do have to earn money for their schooling. Actually, I have some bills in my purse you can look at.
What is in my future? Well I do have a long *bucket* list.
On of them is that I hope to grow my hair long enough to play Lady Godiva through the streets of Hollywood. I will be tanned, toned and tatties discreetly covered by that hair.
Another is to install a printer in my home to avoid the pap ummm hundreds of Paps who follow me to the UPS.
Another is to book my children in boarding school, so I can carry on my good works".
"One day, I was hoping to experience space travel, but I found out someone had already booked me a seat!"
The biggest one on the bucket list, is my Star on Hollywood Boulevard. I think I have really earned this, not many mothers have to stay on bed rest for eight...ummm...I mean 30 weeks. I must be in the Guinness Book of Records."
"Yes, Kate plus 8 is still going strong-ish...well...according to my fan club, all fifteen of them say it is so.
We are still awaiting answers from the countries we have solicited....err...been asked by".
No, even though I am a *can do* person and never gives up, I think my dancing days are over, no one could help me, so will not be joining the Tiller Girls."
I had thought of a sticker note business aimed at the young mother demographic. They will already be printed with reminder statements to stick on their husbands’ lunch boxes, car windows and headboards. It will be called Kate’s Static Notes and Coupons!
Another is to have my specially plagiarised recipe book, printed in fifteen different languages. Of course, that may be a bit awkward with the American Flag cake!
Oh, thank you for having me on the show, I would gladly come again!”

Oh, and I told them I wont be tuning in on Tuesday.

Jane in California said...

Joanne - since you are an actual viewer, The Talk producers might actually pay some attention to your e-mail. I certainly hope so :)

Joanne said...

Jane... I sure hope they start listening. I have watched the talk since the first day and tuesdays show is the first one I wont be watching. I already took it off my DVR for that day.

Yolanda said...

I also think it's pretty funny that The Talk's website doesn't even advertise her appearance on the show tomorrow. That's how relevant she is!

Button Button said...

I'm having a hard time understanding your point of views. Most people here said that they did not care what K8 does, as long as it keeps the kids from filming. I don't recall that on any of her pity party appearances that she flashed the kids pictures.
---------------------------------

There was a show where she did show all her kid's pictures.

I don't know the name of the woman who was talking to her, but Kate did have all the kid's pictures and was going over them like the kids had disappeared from the planet.

She was sitting on a sofa and her legs looked like tree trunks.

Anybody remember what I am talking about?

******

Yes, the interview with Natalie
Morales. It's the one where Kate
kept pushing on her right ear as if listening for a prompt from
the control room telling her what to say about the kids. She was just staring at the pictures, tears dripping down her face, and
utterly silent.

I know many mothers have been moved to tears when gazing into the faces of their children, but this looked for all the world like Kate was saying "Ye gads, somebody help me say something about these children! I don't know who they are!"

Ummm...Which Kid Is That? said...

There was also a show (don't remember which -- they all blend together) where she was on the set, and they were flashing photos of all the kids in the background while Kate was trying to talking about each child, but the photos were out of sync with what she was saying. She seemed totally clueless as to what was happening, even though she could see the prompter in front of her.

I Heart Buffy said...

All I know is, I will not be watching. That will get their attention. I frigin love Cyndi Lauper & would have gladly tuned it for that, but if Kate is on, forget about it. She is a world class liar. I am sick of her spewing the same old junk we have all heard a thousand times over. She has no more relevance than Danny Bonaduce. They are both Z-List nothings. She rates with Danny Bonaduce! And Tawny Kitaen. And I would say Vanilla Ice, but he has a show now or something. But there ya have it, she has reached Z-List status folks. I think this may be her final show. The Talk? She couldn't even book The View to plug her new episodes? Will TLC even air them? I think Kate's ship has finally sailed. Yippee & Hooray.

The kids can have their lives back. What a great thing. And Kate can try as hard as she wants for a "career" in Hollywood, but I think she may have burned those bridges, along with her hair. Here's to the kids getting their voices heard & having a childhood & getting to be normal kids!

PA G-ma said...

Thanks to all of you who pointed out that K8 had used the kids in her "solo performances". I guess that she really doesn't have any class. Yeah, I'm an optimist but I've been wrong before. I did not watch many shows that she was on (Toys R Us and the Crayola Factory did it for me) and when I come upon her on any show, I quickly change channels. She is so full of it that I cannot stand to watch her.

Andrea said...

I wonder if they will bring up the contempt of court charges that Jon filed against Kate. I doubt it but it would be nice to see her squirm under the spotlight.

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

She most absolutely did burn those bridges. She managed to sabotage all the other projects that were on the table. If she wanted ANY kind of career in Hollywood, being an insufferable bitchy diva and not speaking to anyone on DWTS was so NOT the way to go about it. And she knows that.

Soooooo ready for the last couple seconds of her 15 mins to tick down....

Janet said...

Didn't Sharon Osborne take a pic of Kate and throw it over her shoulder with a disgusted look on Ellen?? Interesting to see if she kisses up to her on the show or is honest in what she thinks of Kate.

WonderButton said...

I will be watching the talk today - I watched it yesterday, and they only mentioned Kate very briefly at the end. "And tomorrow, Kate Gosselin will be here". Almost an afterthought. Nice video clip of Cindi Lauper, though, to announce her presence.

If they do mention the contempt of court thing, it will be spun into something like "Oh poor me. look what Jon's doing to me now."

I have high hopes in Sharon O. She strikes me as a lady of integrity who can say what needs to be said in a situation and not be overly mean about it. Go, Sharon, go. Please ask the hard questions.....shed a bright light on the situation, so people can see that beneath Kate's polished image there are 8 tired children with sad eyes, longing for normal childhoods and a family where they feel safe, loved, and protected.

Monster Mommy said...

For Janet... (see link)

Yes, Sharon Osbourne did take a photo of Jon & Kate and toss it clear over her shoulder with an expressive eye roll on Ellen. It was a riot, and I quote- "Wrong, wrong, WRONG!"

So I wrote a letter to the CBS 'top brass', letting them know just how wrong it is to ask Kate Gosselin to appear on The Talk.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ncPXL9dmOKI

Carol said...

This is really sad. Kate is just out of control. I watched the Valentines Day clip on another site. She was just gushing about how "special" and "romantic" the day is. Heart-shaped pancakes for breakfast. Heart-shaped sandwiches for lunch, etc. etc.

NOW? She jets off to LAX on what she used to refer to as a "special" day? I wonder if she made the heart-shaped sandwiches ahead of time to put in the lunch boxes? Can't forget a heart-shaped "crunchy thing" either.

It's CRUEL not to let Jon stay there when she is away. She is rotten to the core. I can understand if she doesn't want Ellen staying there, but not Jon. He is their father and they should have at least one parent with them when the other one is not around. It's just plain CRUEL.

I just checked cbs.com. They do have full episodes of The Talk online. So, today's episode should be available tomorrow online.

Shoka's Understudy said...

First sentence out of her mouth was a lie.

This is not good.

Proud Grandma said...

I have never heard of The Talk. So have no idea when or where to watch. So can anyone tell me how it went?

Pattypanda said...

Nothing new on Kate, the Talk obviously doesn’t know much about her. I watch The Talk, so I wasn’t letting Kate ruin it for me today. Here are snippets of the interview: do you regret putting kids on tv – we are not scripted. zero regrets kids on tv take the good w/ the bad. amazing experiences we would not ever had, would never have been able to go to an amusement park. We’ve traveled the world, kids love to travel. the media is the neg. (They neglected to ask about kids out of school for 2 weeks to work)
my kids will be equipped….to face the world (after a lot of therapy and drugs)
the crew is like family, we will always stay in contact (just like family LOL)

(On speaking out on TV talk shows) I only answered what game out.. lie
what about Regis – you brought that up
I went out there to clear the record
I won’t go on tv and bash their father - lie again
one babysitter 3.5 days a week. she does it all, homework, etc.

They’re desperate for Kate+8 ratings for April.

Willmarmn said...

Hmmm...Sharon O. disappeared for the Kate segment. Kate appeared nervous in the first half of the interview (her voice got wobbly)! Then the second part she was better, because it was a plug for Kate + 8 coming in April (all smiles). Lots of lies! You'd think with those tightly fitted veneers she COULDN'T lie through her teeth!

And now that Cyndi Lauper is on Sharon is back. Interesting!

Leigh Ann said...

I had never heard of The Talk, either. I thought it was a morning show so didn't know why there weren't any comments. My husband was complaining about Steel Magnolias being on again so I looked at the guide to what else was one. And there was The Talk. So I put it on to see if Kate was on. I tuned in time to hear her say "any mom in America if someone knocked on their door and said they were going to bring in a fatherly crew and take them to Australia and New Zealand they would say yes". I also heard her say how when they crew isn't filming they play with the kids then said when the show is over they'll keep in touch. I guess she thinks they'll show up every day to play with the kids. If anyone says "let's keep in touch" it'll be a Christmas card every year. But I'd be surprised if even that happens. Besides, once they aren't putting her on TV regularly, she won't care about them anyway. Who was the lady on the far left? She looked like she wasn't believing most of what Kate was saying.

Barbra said...

same load of krap she always spews. she's doing it alone, she'd NEVER bash her childrens father, the camera crew is like family (even though it isn't the same people, you just interchange one guy for another and they become 'part of us' - imagine it's like swap Steve for Jon, new father figure, and it's all okay because after all, she's just a mother figure). looked very orange, very dark roots showing on the straw coif, should wear pantyhose as her legs are NOT very pretty bare (no matter how many orange layers she has on them). And, so much for how Sharon O would light into her, wasn't even on with her. Did think it was funny that they could discuss Billy Ray Cyrus/Miley and ask if he accepts any of the blame for the trouble Miley is getting into because of Hannah Montana, but then not be able to apply the 'same blame' to kate for what she's done and doing to the kids.
They also stated Kate Plus 8 returns in April, but NO mention of twisted kate.
Guess the show is really hard up for time fillers when they have to stoop to a z-lister who is not being invited to be on ANYTHING ANYMORE!

Protect8 said...

To Proud Grandma

The show went exactly as expected. The two hosts who would have asked KG "real" questions were absent from the Kate segment. Sara Gilbert had some good innuendo type comments, such as, "Wow, that's amazing that you don't have any help with childcare." This flew right over Kate's head.

Kate mainly said the same things she has said for years as if a Play Button is pushed on her back. The only difference was she did look more nervous than I've seen in other interviews. She knows there are no more pap photos (they probably don't make money anymore) and she has to realize she is not in demand - she is old news. And I think the fear showed in her.

She did a big deal about the people who don't like her and how "any woman out there" would not turn down an offer to have their family on a reality television program

I was sure I could hear a loud nationwide shout of "Wrong!" after she said it. I don't know anyone who would have cameras follow their families. It all goes back to "airing one's dirty laundry is uncouth."

One would think Scientologist Leah Remini would talk less (she never shut up and constatnly interrupted SG) and listen more since the LRH OT courses up to the Bridge requires hours on end of listening training. Leah yakked away and defended Kate on every single issue that came up - obnoxious. Awful show in general. My one and only time watching it.

Shoka's Understudy said...

TLC: The Lysol Channel

Sanitized for Their Protection!

Sharon and Holly sat this one out.

WHY???

Really disappointed in Sara. She glowingly looked at kate and told her she thinks it is amazing that she takes care of 8 kids. kate said I have a babysitter (1) 3 days a week.

They showed film from AUgate, slowed down for effect of kate each gently hugging each child, and especially the boys, was walking in the surf holding a boy tups hand.

Talked about the bag of goodies that she takes on each trip

The interview in all was bizarre. She definitly was backpeddling and trying to convince everyone in America that she's not the evil one, that her heart is her kids.

She said she didn't regret the show after someone asked her if she had any regrets. The reason why she doesn't regret it, is because she has made a ton of money off the backs of those poor kids!

She is such a liar, smoke screen, dog and pony show.

I am physically ill.

p.s. Cindy Lauper is Awesome! She just played a song lyrics game with fans and on the last video, she said that was her mom in the video, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. She said, it was a great way of having a memory with your mom and family sharing in your success!

Wow, wish someone would pound that into her stone heart.

Willmarmn said...

She also said that the crew are like dads to the kids. How confusing to the kids when the crew changes. There goes another dad...there goes another dad...there goes another dad...Sarah Gilbert did ask her, but what happens when the show ends and the crew is gone? Kate said they will always stay in contact. Yah, just like her parents, Beth, Jodi & Kevin, Tony D. and DWTS peeps (I'm sure I've missed a few). And best of all just like she told the kids at their marriage renewal in Hawaii. Lies...all lies!

Ampersomom said...

Pattypanda said...

"one babysitter 3.5 days a week. she does it all, homework, etc."


She really told this lie? I thought she said she did not have nannies/babysitters in the past.
How many pics have been taken of "babysitters" with the kids (more than one at a time!). So is Kate the one doing homeschooling? Hopefully she is not covering the English language...would hate the kids calling it Englishish.

Shoka's Understudy said...

Hey, I need to tell you something. I think I misquoted Sara Gilbert about the childcare, it went over my head! haha

The lady came in to weigh me and right when kate was coming on and I was trying to hear what was being said.

I did tell the lady that I can't stand kate gosselin.

She said, "I can't either"!!!

Haha!

so sick of her said...

Glad I did not watch, sounds like I did not miss anything new. I did say she would talk about Aussie trip, doing the poor mom thing(I do it myself), I never bash Jon. Lies, Lies, Lies. So Kate tryin to paint yourself as a loving caring hands on mom NOT! You have not been a mom since the day you put those kids on TV. Read, some of the early comments and they are mostly negative. They comments about what she said: she lies, her appearance: they said she looks orange and older looking, her hair is over processed. And can't figure out why those two missing hosts were not grilling Kate.

Pattypanda said...

On The Talk, it's normal for only two or three of the hosts to participate in each interview. With wasn't any special about the Kate interview.

Ella said...

I watched, usual rubbish lies. She sounded nervous and looked HOrrific!!
I thought that when they discussed Billy Cyrus in the segment before hers that it might get kind of interesting, but alas not.

People cannot watch in April!!!

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

Leah was great as Doug's wife on the television show, but I don't like her personally. I consider her the Sherri Sheppard of The Talk.

And of course Kate has to say that any mom would put her kids on television and take away every scrap of their privacy, make them work to support the family - how else can she justify going down that road? We all know better than that -- most moms would not do so; or would see what happened with just the one special and decline anything further. Most parents want to work and support their children, not the other way around.

Most parents want to protect their children from strangers and keep their childhood private and enjoyable.

Kate - so socially inept and vain, hasn't a clue what most moms would do in her situation.

No Worry, Beef Curry said...

Oh My Lordy Bee.....

If you DID opt to watch "The Talk" this afternoon, then you probably found the first segment about Billy Ray and Miley Cyrus very interesting. It was as if the topic of *Damage done to children in television* had come full circle.

Then Kate came on with a creepy yellow fly-away hairdo to chat about how perfect her life really is.... and how 99% of what we read about her online is a complete falsehood. Everything's great. (Sweet Angelic Kate: Insert mother-of-the-year halo here). Then it happened....

After the break, they aired a brief preview of the new Kate Plus 8 episode.... Viva Australia! (or whatever, I made that name up.) Kate is sitting on the sofa giving an interview, in a rose colored blouse exposing near nipple. I have no doubt by the time the New Zealand footage airs, she will be completely bare-chested, sipping a glass of Franzia Chablis, while lying on a red velvet chase lounge.

If you missed it, you can view it on the CBS website by tomorrow. (Sharon Osbourne was not part of the Kate Gosselin interview, nor was Holly Robinson)

Esme said...

Kate's liefests get more and more insufferable. She plainly bashed Jon repeatedly on air and tries to slither out of it by saying she only answered what she was asked. Try answering tactfully and without lies, Katieroo. She is absolutely delusional about the crew. They've had a rotating door since Jen and the first crew took off and they for sure don't go back to see the Gosselins kids. What really disturbed me was the starstruck teenage looking girl in the audience. Kate is imposing her lies on the impressionable kids who don't know any better.

Why is Mommy Orange? said...

I was appalled to hear Kate say that most parents would submit to doing a Reality TV show, given the "opportunity came knocking at their doors".

Wrong on so many levels!

I for one, would absolutely not agree to such a thing, not matter what the cost (financial loss) to my family. The emotional damage is far too great. We've seen what happens, time and time again on these shows, and can make the educated, selfless decision not to sign up for it, period.

What a lame excuse, and Kate Gosselin you are dead wrong. Seeing what happened to YOU and your collapsed family ALONE, is reason enough to deter most (mentally sound) Americans from making such a bad move.

She also said she currently only has one babysitter, 3 and a half days a week. Really? We know she has lied about the personal chefs, landscapers, maids, PR agent(s), and now the Not-A-Nannies too? Perhaps she scaled down once the kids went back to school full time, but we know that wasn't the case during the last "helper" count.

Alice Bluegown said...

Kate has said that when she told her kids that she and Jon were divorcing, the kids sat for a minute and then asked, "What's for snacks?"

When she told them they would no longer be taping, there was "weeping and wailing times eight", or something like that.

The kids shrugged off no more Jon and went nuts at no more crew.

Then she says the crew are just more fathers for her kids and they have life-long attachments, and when the show does come to an end, the crew will still be in their lives.

Yeah, right.

becca said...

I could not even finish watching her. Just awful. I am dying to see somebody actually ask her real questions. She said she never bashed Jon, and we all know she has, why didnt one of them say.."what about when you said the kids call you crying to come home, or that strangely, ironically you have forgiven him, even though he never asked for your forgiveness"? I though Leah Remini would have been tougher on her. She is a narcissist, who feels entitled. I had to turn it off when they asked her for tips-disgusting human being.

Aunt Chris said...

If the first set of crew is no longer around, why would this set be?!

mama san said...

watched the episode - Kate was well rehearsed w/her answers. I noticed she was wearing one necklace, red nails and certainly was botoxed major. I wonder if we will get a read on Kate's body language.

chesterctymom said...

What's with that 70s style of hair? The fake tan too. Who even watches her? Every time she opens her mouth it's like white noise. The hosts falling all over her were disguisting!

Pattypanda said...

Is was a horrible slacking interview. They knew nothing besides she was divorced and 8 kids and a reality show. With all the tweets they received, total disgrace that they did not do a better interview. Obviously no fact checking. Guess they condone child slavery and husband abuse.

Pattypanda said...

Right Kate - no help. I want to see her out plowing the snow, mowing the grass, cleaning the pool. Lies, lies, any time her mouth if moving.

Did she hear herself? does she believe herself? Cause I dont.
blablabla, me, blablabla I, blabla I never talk bad, Im so good, I work so hard, I dont have help, Everybody lies, is jelous, will do real life, more blabla.
Same old like always. Definately not the gift of gap.
When is somebody out there gonna ask her the real questions????

Ohio Buckeye said...

Didn't watch. Just responding to comments here:

So, despite the fact that two of her 6 year olds have been unsuccessful in KINDERGARTEN, she boldly claims that HER kids will be able to handle life, thanks to their TLC experiences? All evidence to the contrary, Katie Darlin'.

First the tups were held back a year from K, right? The next year the 6 entered K but only 4 of them remain in school due to various issues?

So, on what basis are we to believe she and her kids are such a healthy unit and now so well prepared to handle life?

And the woman who is unable to sustain even family relationships is now ever-so-close with a filming crew??? Whuuut???

The woman remains delusional.

I love it when she plays 'I'm just a mom like you guys' - yeah, sure, in your mansion with all your hired help. Yes, JUST like the average middle class mom. You betcha.

Oh, and she would never bash her children's father.... SERIOUSLY, K8? Then WTH was all that crap we've seen you spew over the last several yrs, not to mention your terrible on-camerat treatment of your then-husband????

TLC is going to have to spend major bucks to try to wup up enough interest in the whole Australia episode. K8 Gosselin is so over. She's about as interesting as a mud puddle.

A mud puddle with really bad hair.

Same Old, Same Old said...

I said earlier..."and what will be the outcome if they do? You know darn well all she is going to do is say that it's reality, they're playing in front of the camera, the kids love the crew (they missed them so much they cried), they are afforded the most amazingish opportunities, crap, crap and more crap...

Why would this be any different? Same old spiel. You know exactly what is going to come out of her mouth."

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

I didn't watch. Was I correct? No matter how much writing to a show is done, no matter how much hoping she's asked some hard questions, it's not going to happen. TLC wouldn't allow it.

Just My Few Canadian Cents said...

The interview seemed awkward and a bit tense. Kate looked a bit off as well.

A few thoughts: Kate only has one nanny help 3.5 days a week. That's still a lot of help considering the kids are in school fulltime and see their dad on the weekends. The hours that equal 3.5 days/week could be stretched over the week to cover the time when the kids are home from school over the whole week. Point being: she has help and she isn't raising the kids by herself by any means.

Kate emphasized that the show wasn't scripted. I'm not in the industry, but just because the kids aren't given lines to memorize, doesn't mean they're not being directed (hence working). I don't believe "they're just living their lives." I think they're filmed doing repeated takes of whatever the director/producer tells them to do for a scene. So Kate you didn't sell me with your "it's not scripted" line. But nice try.

When an interview starts by asking the person if s/he has any regrets about something (in this case they asked Kate if she had regrets about putting her children on tv), the implication is the person made a bad decision about something. By asking about regrets the interviewer is also implying that maybe what the person did wasn't such a good thing. People usually don't have regrets when they exercise sound judgment.

And when Kate said the camera crew "are like dads" to the kids, that's another puerile, cruel dig at Jon. How would she feel if Jon said his girlfriend was like a mother to the eight? It's one thing for a person to say s/he is like a parent to me. That's their own description about a relationship. But it's inappropriate and immature to imply other men are father figures to her kids when the father is involved.

And interesting that the interviewers didn't raise the issue of the kids' expulsion (or voluntary withdrawal for those into semantics). I'm sure the interviewers were told not to bring it up. While on the one hand it's commendable that they respected the children's privacy, but it also shows how much they pandered Kate's/TLC's demands and only asked prearranged questions. Not very impressive. It is fair game to ask about it since Kate spoke publicly about it.

If the point of Kate's appearance on this show was to improve her image and ratings, I think the interview backfired badly.

WonderButton said...

I am so disappointed by Sharon Osborne!!!! Where was she? How could she miss this opportunity? Although on Monday's show, her and Holly also disappeared for the center segment, so maybe that's the format. But what a missed opportunity, and even with that lead-in about Miley Cyrus.

so sick of her said...

Besides the common lies Kate told, she actually made a lier out of herself by saying she does not bash Jon. When she refered to the camera crew as they are like dads to the kids, she just bashed Jon right there. That is like saying Jon is never around, being a dad to his kids. And we know that is BS. Oh, and when she said, the show is not scripted, she out right lied about that, she said that the kids run in and out of the frames and we all saw and read about the corn field. Kate does not seem to remember what she does or say, a day, a week or a year or years ago. Kate it's all on pics and tape. I did watch and I read a summery at our good buddy site. And of course the sheeple are just beside themselves, with joy. Sick freaks.

----------------
Because everyone's life involves sitting on a couch being interviewed and filmed. Because everyone has to wait to go into a store until the cameras get in and set up to film them walking through the doors toward the camera. Because everyone has Emeril come cook a meal for them.

Leigh Ann said...

--------------
If it's anything their other travel episodes, we aren't going to see or learn much about Australia. In New York when they were on the bus tour we heard all about Kate talking about monkey brains (or whatever she had to get candy for) and the mad dash with ice cream, we saw them at some carnival that could have been anywhere, shopping in the Statue of Liberty gift shop (although that was probably all they could film), eating in a Chinese restaurant that could have been anywhere. I get this isn't a travel show, but we'd like to see some of the place they are visiting. Kate won't let the tour guides talk and she doesn't know what she's talking about.

amy too said...

Even though Sara is the originator and a producer of that show, Julie Chen is married to Moonves, who owns CBS. Julie was a hard hitting newswoman before she got pregnant, had a baby, so this show was her way of staying on the air, not having a full schedule, not having to be on the CBS morning show at 7.

Sharon and Holly weren't there because Sharon just told an interviewer that the "Reality Show" ruined her children's lives and they are just finding their way back in their 20s. Both kids were in an out of drug/alcohol rehab. Sharon and Ozzie had a lot of problems.

Holly is about autism and her children are not used as fronts for her Charity.

I do believe that Kate, looking like a hooker next to Julie who had to have a skirt and blouse that were designer clothes and probably topped 2 grand. So Kate with a skirt up to her butt, couldn't keep her knees together while talking.

Yes, I believe that she is a replacement for that show if another one of the gals, like Leah who is all Hollywood and does not shut up, may be another one replaced.

I would bet money Sharon and Holly refused to interview Kate G, no doubt.

Kate would walk off the show if Sharon started on her, no doubt about that.

Just my opinion. And now red finger nails? The hair roots are the current style. Yes, her face was botoxed, my hubby is the plastic surgeon and she had fillers along the corners of her mouth as well as cheek implants, plus the knees were more accentuated which my hubby thinks might have been a bit of liposuction at the calf and thigh.

Philadelphia Worker said...

Oh, I was at the Phila Art Museaum when the kids had to run and then re run and re tun up the steps the right way, Kate was on her phone, the kids were falling because the steps are very wide. She had them repeat and redo scenes where she talked to the kids, the camera was behind her and she was mouthing the words so the kids would remember their lines.

Right, just the kids running in and out.

Yes, Kate is orange, just like the cast from Jersey Shore, only she is really more orange because she must use a self tanner liquid at home also, so double the horrid color.

Hate to see her on The Talk, never saw the show until now because I think the panel, especially Leah is wound up like a spring. They got rid of one host, now Leah is next. Sara is boring and afraid to talk.

Julie is the real newshound, but she is just passing time, she is married to the pres of CBS and doesn't need the money. that show is going off the air.

good for kate, she does it all.

What a world it must be in Gollywood, huh?

Brummygirl said...

So, if Sharon was not on the panel grilling Kate, do you think it was because she so dislikes Kate that either she refused to participate or that the producers knew she would probably say something?

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

Kate's face looks like glass. Gone are those lines between her eyebrows. She is doing everything to stay fresh for that big Hollywood break. And Julie Chen fawning over Kate's figure commenting on how thin and great she looks? Julie is thinner than Kate for God's sakes. What the hell. No wonder the world is messed up.

That stupid and unforgivable comment about the crew being like lots of dads for her kids? What a horrible thing to say when they already have a father. And saying her kids can handle the world now that she has travelled to a few destinations on TLC's dime? Idiot. Travel does not make decent and functional adults. And I see she is going after her detractors now. Telling me I would have done what she did if given the opportunity. That's a little brave Kate. I guess you are going out with a bang now. What have you got to lose. The ship is sinking.

Protect8 said...

Ther are many of us on GWOP who watched the Gosselin show from the beginning and realized fairly early on that Kate belittled, demeaned, purposefully humiliated and consistently spoke rudely to her children. We also saw KG's breakdowns over things as simple as gum on clothes, ice cream spilled on clothes or major sobbing attacks because an airplane was delayed. It's been a while since J&K+8 was on the air, so it's kind of easy to forget that most interviews with Kate, like today on The Talk, completely dimiss the real reality show.

I had to laugh today when Kate earnestly described how wonderful the show was for her children, how great everything is - blah, blah, blah - as if none of us ever saw Kate in action for several years. How can she be so clueless? Is she completely unaware of the fact that we all saw what we saw? Sure, she believed she was cute when she slapped Jon's face, made her children cry, threw temper trantrums in toy stores and got upset because the "underlings" like the men who put solar panels on her house had nothing better to do then listen to her scream as she was on their lift. She believed everyone loved her because TLC told her this, and Target sold DVDs of the show to a sad faction of people who believed her "I'm a good Christian" line. But by now, can't she see for herself that she was way out of line on the show? Did she forget seasons of the show documenting her ugliness is out there for all to see?

I can understand that her narcissism and DWTS stint led her to believe that she was a "celebrity." And it was obvious that the party line her publicist fed her to spew on The Talk today was all about repairing her image. But does Kate Gosselin truly not understand that the very vocal opposition to her exploitation of her children is based on how she presented herself on Jon and Kate Plus 8?

She claims that 99% of what is written about her in tabloids is wrong! But what is so hilarious about this, is the fact that there are several years of her abusive behavior documented on the "fun" TLC show.

She thinks opposers are just "haters." Perhaps there are people who jumped on the bandwagon to just hate, peole who jumped on to diss her clothes, her hair, her shoes based on the latest ROL photo, her bodyguard. But what she has so conveniently forgotten is that she was documented by TLC.

And from Oprah, to Ellen, to Dr. Phil, to The View, to The Today Show, to Larry King and now to The Talk, these hosts continue to completely disregard the truth about Kate's mistreatment of her children as documented on her own show.

At least her nervousness today suggested the slight possibility that she is starting to recognize her "celebrity" is fading.

Tami said...

If they are not airing anything until April that must mean they couldn't find any Thanksgiving or Christmas footage that was decent. It is known that the kids were taped dressed in costume on Thanksgiving. I guess they are not going with the art museum footage either? Because if they are only doing one show a month(or are they going to weekly?) it sounds to me like they are hyping the Australia show now.

Well I for one would not make my life or my kids into a reality show! We have a life around here and it would not include someone falling all over sticking cameras in our faces. Furthermore, no one "came knocking"! She hunted down the chance to have a show about herself! So she would not have to earn a living.

She must be trying to provoke Jon again right before the court case. If she is calling a bunch of random guys dads to her kids, he just might get upset and she knows that he gets in trouble whenever he talks. She is probably describing them as dad-like to dispel the former talk of them being perverts filming inappropriate things. Still, they are nowhere near dads to her kids and that is just sick. I suppose the female crewmembers, her babysitters and the show producer, etc, are the kids' moms then?! I'd ask her that.

________________________

I'd bet money on it. I can't see Sharon being silent after what she's personally experienced in the reality genre & the damage it's done to her kids & family. I also couldn't see her stopping once k8 tried to whine her way around Sharon's points. I don't think it would have gone well for k8 at all, because Sharon is not the type to back down, especially if she has a valid point & knows what she's talking about. This is a truth k8 doesn't want to hear or deal with.

Amanda Iowa said...
When is somebody out there gonna ask her the real questions????
______________________

The moment TLC is no longer backing her. So long as they're there k8 will never be asked the hard questions, they likely have a list of what she can & can't be asked & probably pre-approve questions or something of the like. Wanting to ask k8 questions is probably a process slower & more tedious than getting approved for a major loan. However the moment TLC is no longer there I'm betting that if she's able to make it onto a talk show the host will ask all the things they've wanted to but weren't allowed to.

If what I've read in other posts is correct then TLC was only potentially interested in the kids until age 18, which means there is a time limit on k8's protection. Hopefully interest will fade greatly by then & TLC will have gone, but once the kids hit their teens I'm wondering if they won't be watched even more, especially if they do not get therapy & have their issues in hand. If they act out or behave badly that could just start everything up all over again. Or if they look to do shows based on one or a couple of the kids, you know the type, like some teen show called "Hannah's World". Unfortunately I see k8 trying to push that in the future too, anything so she can somehow stay on TV. Bleh!

After reading all the comments I'm glad I did not watch, same old, same old, with a couple new lies each time.

Brummygirl said...

I have said before how strange it is to wander into sheeple land.
From the biggest sheep in the field.. quote: "I would rather see Kate on The View even though people say they do not want her. I guess this show (The Talk) needed a big name for their sweeps ratings. A BIG NAME? Wasn't Cyndi Lauper on the show for goodness sake?!!
I wonder what is going to happen when opticians stop selling Rose coloured glasses?!!!

Duckman said...

No new K+8 until April?

Interesting scheduling.

By April, the "Kate" that will come to mind in the popular consciousness will be Kate Middleton. That's a Kate people can actually get behind - a real princess instead of a self-imagined one.

Barbra said...

If The Talk had her on to boost their ratings, it might have worked better if they had advertised her upcoming appearance earlier than the day before.

If SHE hopes to get her kids on shows (like Helper Hannah, Professor A, Loud Leah, etc.), she's betting on the wrong horse, the kids don't have ANY personality thanks to HER keeping the six as a "1" all the time. And the twins already flunked her 'modeling' tryout and DON'T want to be 'in the bidness'.

To be fair, what she said was that the camera crew is a bunch of dads (as someone else commented, to try to stop the 'perv' connotation from some of their picture choices). But it still is a back-handed slam at Jon, although I don't think she's smart enough to have thought of that.

Her appearance on the show was so typical, no talent, no poise (sitting with knees apart, and ugly knees at that, someone needs to inform her that her legs are not attractive bare), tacky shooort skirt, hair newly cut (UGGGGLY) but with teen style black roots showing, and beyond-snookie orange glow to her skin. All in all, her appearance was a big flop. She has nothing to add to a show like that as the ONLY topic she can talk about is the kate one and not so good even at that, still a lot of ummmm (the sound of her brain spinning to come up with a comment).

Protect8 --
Thanks for such a well written comment. I agree with everything you said except for the reason for our objection to her now - it's not because of the past and what is documented, but because she refuses to stop the continued exploitation of her kids. I think we'd all be happy if she'd ever say she was stopping the show because it was the right thing to do for her children and forgive her for the past, but we know it'll never happen.

Cynthia said...

Kate says 99 percent of what is said online about here are lies.
There should be at least 1 here that is true.

Pattypanda said...

When she talked about the plane ride to AU that was one of the funniest lies I've heard. She has bags of toys filled w/ new stuff from the dollar store, and doles it out as the kids need something to do. Like Colin was looking at little antsy so I looked and my bag to see what I had for him. Then one of the girls asks how much longer on the plane and Kate lies and says on 3-4, (but was really 18 or something) and the girl says, oh good, I love this plan. Total BS diahria of the mouth. Hasn't there been stories from flight attendants how Kate sits as far away from her kids, leaving them to the nannies to take care of which she literally "wines" and sleeps most of the time with Steve.

Pattypanda said...

Oh - I meant to add, when has she ever been seen near a dollar store. She was trying to down play it so much she could even admit to Target. LOL

brummygirl said...

Thank you, Gosselin archives,for posting the link. My word, where do I start? Once again the hosts went really easy on her although the announcement at the beginning, said basically that nothing was barred. Where have these people been? I know now why Sharon was not in on the interview, she could not have kept quiet when Kate blatantly said "I have not bashed the kids Dad, I will never do that!" Good Lord, we have heard and seen her doing it? Is the woman crazy? I guess the answer to that is a resounding YES!! So, 99 per cent of what is written about her is not true? She admits her kids can look back and read and see everything? It is documented for posterity the things she has done and said, yet she sat there in an orange sweater to match her skin (sorry, that was catty)and played it like Mrs. Goody Two Shoes. The woman lies, lies and lies. She did however, say that the camera men were Dads, not dads to the kids, but that didn't need to be said. Kate was revved up for this interview, you could tell she had everything already in her mind what she was going to say, regardless of what people asked. She is a spin doctor to be sure. What is the show in April going to be? "The Easter Bunny refuses to leave Eggs to Lying Chicks?" Promotion, Commotion!! I am hoping that this is a show that a large volume of people do not watch. I had never heard of it. And so it continues....a day in the life of a narcissist..... (edited for text type speak)

So DONE! said...

Here is my question for Kate: what is the difference between TLC camera's following her kids' every move, bowel movement, snotty nose, temper tantram, shopping trip, vacation or play; and the Pap cameras that follow her around? She is just "living her life"..shopping, tanning manicuring. If it doesn't bother 6 year olds, when should it bother her? Tell me the difference?

And I dare say that the camera is not directly in her face as it was on Aaden in a recent photo.

Jane in California said...

I watched a little clip from Kate's appearance on The Talk, and I am beginning to doubt that Kate has any other kind of skirt in her wardrobe than mini skirt. Enough of the mini skirts already. If Kate has a stylist, she must be ignoring their advice on how to project a more appealing, refined persona via her clothing choices.

Julie Chen - wearing a knee length pencil skirt and (I believe) white sleeveless blouse - skirt was neutral grey. Sara was in black pants and dark colored top; and I believe Leah was in grey jeans/pants and I'm not sure about her top.

Kate sat there in her mini skirt with her bare legs, red top with a deep v-neck line, and bleached blond hair and she just looks tacky. Of course, she had on hooker sandals to complete the outfit. The woman seems to have no idea about class and style.

Maryanne said...

How difficult would it have been for KG to have said "sure I have " some " regrets, but we all do don't we? Or "I"m sure I said some things I normally wouldn't have, but that was such a trying, crazy, sad time...".

OK, for HER, it would be impossible. This is so out of hand. Good thing for her that she doesn't care at all what other people think. She should have just honestly said THAT.

fidosmommy said...

I don't recall Kate saying she shopped at the Dollar Store. I think she said she shopped in a dollar bin at Target for the plane
toys. Somebody on a blog changed it to dollar store, IIRC.

Also, there is debate in blogland about whether the airline steward's story was real or fake.
The story was that Kate slept almost the whole trip on one of their world adventures - maybe it was Alaska?

Either way, since Kate has shown
herself to be an inattentive mom,
I'm leaning toward her letting the paid help tend to her kids' needs.

Amy too said...

If Steve selected the size of her implants, Steve is jogging along side of her all the time.

He has not spent one solid 2 week period with his family in MD, no he has not.

So, I assume that Steve is the Manager, Stylist, clother and even prepares the questions that can be asked if KG.

a 35 yr old mother of 8 children walks out on a stage with at least 1 very professional journalist, Julie Chen, who did not give her a compliment, but commented that Kate looked slimmer and trim, nothing more.

There was no fawning over Kate by either of the 3 interviewers, it is just that Leah has diarrhea of the mouth and talks out of nervousness

Kate said "we are closer as a family of 9"......

the lies, that was sad about Jon.

As for what Kate does on plane trips longer than 4 hours is sleep, as she explained to the flight att on a recent trip: I have to adjust quickly to the time change since I am the member of the family that the Paps want to speak to, so I am the one who has/must appear refreshed.I do a lot of TV"

It is correct that Kate does not interact with her children on the flights .not saying that she does more than what a lot of mothers do, but she does insure they sleep.

She does not buy anything from the dollar store or carry that "goodie/busy bag" for the kids, each kid has a back pack with their items to stay occupied with and what they bring is what they are stuck with....and that was heard by a flt attd on a L.A. flt.they each have 3 items, only!

I believe that Steve is trying to gear Kate toward a sexy (a poor man's Kim K) but no class.

Julie Chen was bored with her. The audience reaction is signified by flashing "applause signs" whether they like Kate or not. They are guests of the show and so adhere to protocol when in the audience.

So, Kate doctored to plastic and no dates? Of course not, because Steve is running her life.
If Kate loses her contract, you will not see Steve around Wernersville or wherever Kate could move to. He still does not want 8 children to deal with and that is what marriage is.

She has no talent, has lied too much and actually was she selected to co host for Sherry Shepherd on The View this week when they have rotated co hosts all week? Not as long as Joy and Whoopi are on that show. BW got tired of the double personality also.

Sorry for the long e mail, but Kate is exactly what she was before and that is a gal from Mt. Joy, who has been able to make money off of her kids, kick her husband out, live in a Mansion, but alas! Class has avaded her.

Oh yes, the thighs and knees were liposuctioned, that is why no one saw her for a while. Hubby confirms that so did a couple of his plastic surgeon friends: Definition of the thigh and knee. Normal procedure. Plus the jogging and exercise is helping her, but why is it she looks older?

An almost middle age woman with a mini skirt, knowing full well she did not keep her knees together....the sex factor, which doesn't play well from her.

WonderButton said...

Thank you, Amy too, for reminding me of that comment "we are closer as a family of 9". Right there, another dig at Jon, in addition to the one about the camera crew being a bunch of dads.

And then, she has the nerve to say that she would not bash Jon.....she is deplorable.

And why was she on CBS anyway? Is it that ABC abd NBC are both done with her?

I continue to be amazed at how the media and PR people can spin someone's image a complete 180, and the genearl public remain in the dark about the real situation. It makes me wonder about the truthfulness of coverage of other public figures, and even world situations.

______________

This has been the 'argument' here for quite awhile.

The only flaw is that Kate CAN dissapear if she wants to, as we have seen. There are periods of time, (a week here, a week there, where there are no pics of her) where she gets a break -and we get a break- but those kids.... no breaks.

School is their break. When in reality, school should be their job.

But yes. YES and yes.

She whines about the people following her around (when you know she loves it) but that is a small, small dose of what those kids live.

Those paps dont follow her into the bathroom, her bedroom, or from when she wakes up until she goes to bed, in her home, in her car, on her 'vacations' etc.

Its bs. Complete bs.

"Close your legs!!!!!!! Fix your hair, donate that skirt to a 6th grader it will fit properly and stop embarassing your kids any further."

There I feel better now. Im glad I muted it, or this would be a lot longer, and I just dont have it in me tonight.

Disgusted in TX said...

I watched the clip of the Talk interview online and, just as everyone here has noted, it was Kate and TLC's usual party line about how wonderful the show is for her kids. The fact that she has been repeating this speech for the last two years on every show she is on is very telling. She has remained on the defense since the bottom fell out from under her and ultimately--she is stuck in the past and does not seem to have moved on like the rest of the world. I can only think it's her narcissism to blame.

***********************************
I feel the same way. Actually, I'm more cynical about the media especially those who believed Kate like Barbara Walters. It was really sickening after the divorce
with poor Kate and bad Jon. The whole thing has been an education about media and PR.

SpoiledMom said...

I was sickened by the announcement that Kate was to be a guest on The Talk. I Tivo every episode of the talk to watch during "my time" after my girls are in bed. A whopping 2 hours all to me, if I'm lucky, and that includes folding piles of laundry, ironing, and preparing lunches for the next day. Fortunately, I don't have 'helpers' to fold my laundry for me, nor would I wish for that if I had a million wishes. I am a Mom and it is part of my "mom description" you know, to take care of my family.

My issue with Kate's appearance on The Talk may be petty. I find Kate's mumbling and uhmming during her canned excuses, er, answers, to be overly annoying. Can Kate not string two sentences together without an "uhmm" or "It's like..." It is clear she was very nervous during the interview. Where oh where has her 'con'-fidence gone? WHY was Kate a guest in the first place? Yes, we know to promote her exploitation project that is the farce of Kate plus 8. One may think Kate could possibly be squeamish at the thought that her celebrity may be slipping. I, among many others, would not be happier to see these children out of the camera's lens and off tv. Reality tv? Me thinks not. Only when Kate's run is over will she get a fine dose of reality.
Lastly, why were the co-hosts of The Talk sitting within arms length of Kate? I have never seen a guest with that much space between them and the co-hosts. Was that a request of Kate? She needed her personal space? Kate allows no one to get close to her, not even her children. What a sad life this woman must live. I also agree with other posters that Kate needs to dress accordingly. What happened to her 'perk' of clothing allowance from Ann Taylor and Loft? Her wardrobe of late is definitely NOT designer, nor Target worthy.

NCgirl said:

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

I agree. I was already fairly cynical about the media, but something that became very, very clear to me in all of this cross-promotion of Kate Gosselin as a "good mother," is that the media is all intertwined and connected.

I'm not sure which company rises to the top of the heap (Disney maybe?), but NBC, TLC, Disney, etc. are all affiliates of one another (and many many more), and so we see Barbara Walters, once a respected journalist, proclaim that Kate G. has "stah!" power. What a crock. I wonder, does Barbara ever look in the mirror at what she has become and wonder if it was worth it? She has tons of money, but is nothing much more now than a schill for the conglomerate that owns her show.

Same is true for Whoopi - once considered a wild and crazy comic. She can't say much either, or risk losing her cushy job.

The media is paid to spin the stories the way the conglomerate wants them spun. As long as viewers know the score, you won't fall for the spin. It's all a way to sell products.

anotherchesterctymom said...

Huh. Guess the Talk (which I've never heard of) didn't generate much talk. Haven't seen much about her lately.

Barb said...

One of the tabloids recently had a blind item about a 'reality show diva' who slapped her daughter when the youngster woke her up on a long flight, but quickly apologized to the child when she realized other passengers had witnessed the incident. Could this be Kate? I don't watch reality TV so I don't know whether any other reality stars have children, but the blind item did refer to the mother as 'mommie dearest'.

I totally agree that the whole sad reality TV cesspool is about using human tragedy and trainwrecks to sell a dollar of marketing money - the networks are in competition with each other, not affiliation (though large media companies often own more than one brand/broadcast outlet). Regardless of how many folks are outraged and sickened by what we feel is exploitive behavior on the part of parents, spouses, agents, lawyers, managers and media outlets - the deeply sad truth is that for every one of us that is disturbed there are 1000 viewers out there who *live* for that kind of programming. They need to feel better about themselves and the easiest way is to find someone to point and laugh at. Bettering themselves through education, participation, reflection is too much like work. So they grab a bag of fast food and park themselves in front of the TV for a daily dose of "I might be overweight, lazy and boring ... but at least I'm not as pathetic as XXX fill in the blank reality personality or actual "stars" behaving badly. Companies don't care that they are advertising on exploitive shows so long as the rating stats reveal that the audience is their intended demographic. It may be a little chicken/egg - but at this point, the media caters to the lowest common denominator, because the audience has become the lowest common denominator.

so sick of her said...

Ok, Kate caught in another lie. She said that 99% of what is on the internet, about her is not true. Is Kate spending all day, online reading blogs about herself. Wasn't she the one who said sometime ago that she does not care what is said or thought of her? I also got this interesting little piece, from another blog: Kate had speeding tickets scrubbed off the PA Magistrate Site, when a few months ago they were still there. Speeding tickets, parking in fire lanes, probably parking in handicape spaces, I wonder how many tickets Kate got for all of the about, besides speeding? She thinks that is how celebs are/act. Actuallu there only a few who do that kind of stuff, and most of them are younger than her. We, know Kate is tryin to look younger, but act younger? What a coocoo!

Ampersmom said...

Had a thought about this so called bag of items for the kids on flights..funny how she doesn't carry a bag of items for the kids such as snacks for their low sugar melt downs or clean clothes (at least a clean shirt). Why would she all of a sudden become a great mom with a bag of toys for a flight but not be smart enough to carry a snack for their normal filming? Besides how come we never see any footage of them on the planes? If you are going to take your kids on a very exciting flight overseas, wouldn't you want a picture of them on the plane? And yes, you can still take photos on a plane, my daughter has done it for her kids for their first flight.

Leigh Ann said...

A couple of years ago they were filmed going through an airport and each child had a backpack with his or her name sewn on and Kate made a big deal about covering up everything but the first initial with tape for security. But when they were filmed hanging around the airport to go to Alaska they were bored silly and looking for something to do. I didn't see a backpack in sight. If they had anything surely they would have been flopped down in the seats with a book or a little video game or something.

The Friendly Skies said...

_____________________

We saw them on the plane en route to Utah. After her meltdown on the flight, perhaps she put a halt to filming on board. Is the crew allowed to take all of its equipment with them in the cabin? Digital cameras, yes, but everything that's needed for show footage?

Long time Comcast Worker said...

Re: Media

Comcast owns, recently bought, NBC, MSNBC, LIONSGATE FILMS, FEARNET, INC., and several cable channels not shown throughout the US.

The shows, such as The Talk, is a 30 min or 60 min show, picked up on contract for 1 year at a time on CBS. Although a person in Public Relations from TLC may be owed a favor by a Public Relations person at The Talk Show, that is how Kate Gosselin is then "booked" as a guest or a co host could ask a "celebrity friend" to appear on their show, The Talk.

Walt Disney Co owns, among other stations on cable, but not shown through the US, ABC.

Please remember the ABC, CBS, NBC are not intertwined.

If you have watched OWN, Oprah's new show, she has a particular show that I find very interesting and so should you all, who have an interest in how these talk shows "get their guests"....Oprah's show which was produced by King Assoc, this is the show that is shown here in PA on ABC, is a show she owns. the Stations throughout the US, that is ABC, NBC, CBS bid for that show for each area. So you may see Oprah (the show going off the air this year) on Channel 6, WPVI/ABC TV in Philadelphia, but if you are in Milford, New Hampshire, that same show is shown on Milford's local channel and NBC.

Each show is a block of material unto itself, except for this new and amazing TLC which owns all of it's TV stations such as Discovery, Planet Earth, etc.

Now if a Jennifer Anniston has a new movie coming out, we know how she does not appear everywhere and anywhere unless she has a movie coming out then the Public Relations people for her movie are calling the Booking Agents at every talk show on TV and Radio such as the Top of the Line: Oprah, Letterman, Leno, Kimmel, etc. Seriously doubt you will ever see her on The Talk or George Lopez, although since Sandra Bullock owns George Lopez' show, she appears there first.

Got all of that folks? The stations do not own and produce these shows, they contract to show them, advertisers pay to put them on those stations, at the perfect family times. No viewers? No longer a contract.

George Lopez is on a cable station, TBS, he was scheduled to be on at 11:30 p.m. Philadelphia time, UNTIL Conan O'Brien decided to come back at 11:30 p.m., so George Lopez is on at 1 a.m. or later in the Philadelphia area. You would have to be a die-hard sheeple to stay up to watch it.

Also, George Lopez has probably seen the last of TV at this point, since his latin viewership is down due to his time slot.

Same with The Talk.

Also, do you realize that most of the hosts/cohosts do not and I repeat do not meet, see their guests until the guest appears on the stage for televising? Yes, that is true.

The Booker, Producers of the segment with that guest (could be 3 to 5 Producers do the interviewing/question asking/asking the "off limits" questions/ do all the work that we assume the hosts/co hosts do. Not so.

So when Kate walked out on The Talk, hugging and grabbing at Julie Chen....well, guess what? They had never met, nor was Julie Chen comfortable (review you tube of that one)with the over zealous Kate, neither was Sara Gilbert (she is not a hugger)and Leah is a TV/movie star who probably has no interest in the guests because she made so much money on her TV show and it is in residuals that she is passing time.

Hope I have given you some idea how a station in each affiliate(location) fills up their programming slots for 24 hrs, 7 days a week.

There were backpacks in one of the photos, and if you looked at one of the carts, there were two backpacks on there. I also remember a photo of one of the twins carrying a backpack.

On the Alaska trip? I just remember seeing them at the gate waiting to go to Anchorage and they did not appear to have anything to entertain them. One little one was making faces into the camera and I think a couple were rolling around on the floor. Maybe Kate was saving the backpacks for the plane. But from what I remember seeing at the gate they were having a hard time finding something to entertain themselves with.

I remember the day BW was talking about Kate Gosselin and she did not say she had Star Power. What she said is that Kate Gosselin had something that drew the viewers. Having viewership means getting advertisers, means making money from a person who can draw viewers.

BW repeated that again on her show of 10 Most Fascinating People.They during an interview on Bill O Riley she said the same thing that Kate had the viewers, although Bill O'Riley said she had no talent and worked her children like the days of sweat shops. BW did not disagree, she stated "but she pulls in the viewers in the millions. Well those days are certainly gone.

These lists each year are compiled of the most newsworthy who receive the most notoriety such as this year....Bieber Fever was definitely was of those who made news along with the former leader of Egypt.Perhaps someone like the congresswoman injured in Tucson, Ariz. Get the drift folks?

Right now Kate could not get on Leno/Letterman/Oprah/Conon/Kimmel/EEllen or The Today Show/Regis, etc., etc.,

It would be "same old, same old, while Kate makes a fool of the interviewers and they know it. Meredith Veira would not do another interview with her nor vouch for her now, after all the years of the children working on Reality TV/the terrible divorce/the destruction of Jon by Kate ...this is not looked upon as poor Kate, cause we all know that if you make millions, no one has a bit of pity for you.

BW will never have her on The View as a co host. This whole week and the week Whoopi was off, no Kate Gosselin co hosting.

I believe we can start to relax about Kate and her "paps chasing her"...very soon, she will have to pay people to take her photos and then send them in herself via the computer, hoping/praying she gets a slot on some web site or a blurb or if she runs out of money, then she can use the "new girls she bought to swing around the pole and fill up the new bra with dollar bills" cause we all know that the show business she wants to be in requires talent and ability so our Katie will be selling off acre by acre of the big "all mine, all mine land".....

Yeah, she should have kept Jon and been a bit nicer, instead of thinking the grass was greener on the land of the McMansion.

Jane in California said...

To Amy - thank you for clarifying Barbara Walter's words -- I still think less of Walters for helping to promote Kate in the public eye, but as she said, it's all about how many viewers you can get, and nothing to do with common decency. Walters basically admitted she'd sell out if the ratings would be there.

TandLMommy28 said...

OMG. I just watched the video of the kids screaming, "daddy don't go," when Jon drops them off at the end of the driveway. I have to say, that was heartbreaking. Here's the link if you've never seen it:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TLWZH91VYY&feature=related

That is heart-wrenching.

Don't many states have an age when children get to have a say in their custody? DOes PA? Those poor children. I can't even imagine... how bad of a mother do you have to be for your kids to be that upset about going home to you? These are not babies. They are old enough to know that they will see Daddy again in two weeks (or whatever it is). My daughter is a full year younger than the Tups and she completely grasps "how many more days". Those children are not sad because they dont' understand why daddy is leaving. They are terrified of going back to Mommy. That is... horrifying.

But no worries, Kate's got a spot on a talk show so all is right with the world.

You know what? I kinda hope she gets a real tv job WITHOUT the kids. Maybe if she gets offered something that doesn't require them, she will give them to JOn so she can go be famous. Sure, we'd have to see her stupid face on tv for awhile but it would be a TINY price to pay for peace for those children.

Mystical said...

Is was never more clear than on "The Talk" how Kate Gosselin is a master of deception. She adds another dimension to that seedy trait though, and that is this. With nearly every comment delivered, she intended to:

1. Hurt Jon's image by making him look bad as a person and a father. As always, she is driven to destroy that man's self-worth while building up her own.

2. Lie about the closeness of their camera crew, AKA "The Dads".

3. Makes excuses for why she continues to film. It's clearly for the money it puts in her pocket and for her own fame, but she claims it's because the kids love it and need it.....are miserable without it. And, they are getting prepared for adulthood, as they see the world with her....."learning in baby steps".

4. Incessantly boasts about her hands on mothering skills. She cooks for them, gets them drinks of water and does their math homework for them. They are her heart. Notice how she always mentions the jobs she does for them (although doubtful), and never mentions anything nuturing or loving towards the kids.

And Kate contradicts herself in the same sentences. She said the kids were missing the camera crew/the dads (two more slams to Jon) after the divorce. Julie Chen asked what would happen when they go away someday. Kate replied that they would always be in touch and connected because they were family. Very disturbing to listen to this woman.

**************
Wait-let me see if I understand this self-absorbed woman: she thinks that the various crews are the "Dads' to these kids, AND that once they are not being paid, they WILL be coming around still, to be "family" to the kids, just 'cuz??
Wow. Even more delusional than I first thought. She needs *serious* help; help that only professionals can bestow.

hubby is a pap said...

From what I listened into, not for public consumption I'm sure, but KG and SteveO go to wherever it is so that KG can do the voiceovers on the filming that was done: Philadelphia, Australia, New Zealand or whatever shows as I think they may make 5 specials out of it. That is only what the paps were saying.

They were talking about the really nice Stars/celebrities who take their time with the established Paps who respond to the PR people and the shows where they need some photos. These established paps are trained photographers who take great pride in their work, will ALWAYS make the kind/generous/wonderful human beings who happen to be in the public eye look great.

Now, we all know that anyone with a camera is calling themselves a pap, well they are not. They are using that great digital camera to take pics and try to sell them to a ROL.

ROL makes their money when you click onto their site to look at the latest newsmakers of entertainment. Notice that along side the screen is a ton of advertisers who are paying to keep ROL AND TMZ and others on the web. There are so very many web sites now, as you all know.

Paps with reputations, like my hubby are feeding into Huffingtonpost, etc., They make money off of selling these wonderful photographs that can make a Lindsay Lohan look good, if she gives them the time, she does realize how her PR is very important. Now, even with her troubles, some Paps will not make her look bad, they won't. There is an unwritten rule with them and the PR people who represent Lindsay, not to show her looking too bad, and then in better times, they are the paps who get called for the good times when Lindsay poses.

It is a competitive business, they are not all professional Paps, but those who work for the good agencies, which we never hear about, do not take a drunken photo of someone just to make a few hundred dollars when down the road they can make thousands from respecting a "bad time in someone's life"....remember these celebrities, stars, actors, etc., are human beings.

Now a KG has been a nightmare to the professional paps who did the PR people at TLC favors. She did do what is described in the Vanity Fair article of 2009, mistreat them.

hubby is a pap said...

Since I wanted to say so much more, I am putting up a 2nd post. When a KG treats the writer assigned (under contract) to write an article about KG and she acts like she is 12 yrs old with "I want Nobu, etc" and the writer hears it, the camera person working with the writer takes a pic of it. Well, it is disrespectful to the writer/the cameraperson/PR rep from Van Fair with providing that f/c hotel rooms/etc. Well, she begins to destroy herself.

J. Anniston would never disrepect a writer/Established Pap. She is a star.

E. Taylor, age 78 or so, was so great to Prof Paps, she even sent their kids Xmas presents. Without a good Pap, whose work is respected, you don't make it. A writer who "gives you a pass for acting like a 12 yr old" and doesn't print it, makes your career, for her to act that way, well, KG, for some reason you think that you are going to be raking in the $ for years. Not so.

The Paps make or break you. Even if you & Steve "come out now" I don't think you will get the big press.

You got the house, land and every piece of equip and tool that Jon bought. You locked him out. Why?

He would not go along with the lie. The Paps knew this in Hawaii when TLC flew some of them in. You and Jon didn't even talk to each other during the last few years of the show.

Who told the Paps/Writers? TLC crew members who asked not to go back to your house, cause it is not a home.

Can you save your career? Only you know that, but like Jon said to Chris Cuomo on GMA "she does not speak from the heart" and the game you played is getting old and guess what?

There are so many folks out there with 6, 7 or 8 babies. You are not the "one of a kind" you were lucky to have some charisma, but you destroyed it along with your looks.

I should not write again about my hubby as I would not want him to be tarnished as the professional he is and you are not.

Oh he did say your kids were afraid of you, the 6, not the twins, they don't listen to you.

that spot of Oprah where the kids were so quiet at 8 a.m. PA time on that day? You told them you would not feed them breakfast unless they sat still. Only what I heard. Very sad.

Yet, you always have used food with your kids, like Emeril said "never saw such hungry kids before, living in a mansion?" to a pap/writer off the record, not my hubby

Philadelphia Worker said...

Donny Bonnaduce? He was a child star, now a radio show person. Very professional after his years as a child actor on the Partridge Family, many drug rehabs, many marriages, but he is a professional radio dj and host. Even appears on Joy Bahar's Show. He is about 50 or so and had a very hard life, worked hard for his parents, felt like an orphan.

Anyhow, he is above Katie, he is a professional who has been on the radio and TV in NY & Phila for decades. He may fall backward, but he is so darn honest about his mistakes.

He also "nails KG to the Cross" for what she is doing to those kids with their $. He is not on the Z list of life, used no one. Compared to KG he is on the A List of Life. He is a product of being a child in front of a camera. So, be careful about who you compare to Kate G.

He may have been a victim, but he fought that ladder and climbed up and fell down and blamed no one, not a soul.

As he said, Kate is ruining her children's life because she wants a career. He just hopes someone is accounting for the $ she spends that does not belong to her.

He also said "Jon is the only Dad those kids will ever recognize and he interviewed Jon and he honestly felt that Jon was sorry and sincere but destroyed by her" Joy Bahar agreed with donny.

Amy too said...

I wrote to Sharon Osbourne and asked her why she did not interview Kate. Not destroy her, but get some honest answers. I am still waiting for her answer, if I get one. It is not her show, so Sara and Julie did not want to rock the boat.

All you had to do is look at the way they were all dressed during that segment, huh?

Me thinks that after watching Sharon on Celebrity Apprentice, well Sharon would have loved to take Katie apart, but she has a contract with That Talk and she and Julie just figured "what the hey, we are only going to hurt the kids more by nailing Katie".

Respect, as someone mentioned, I don't think there are too many people who have respect for Kate.

In that last appearance on Oprah, why weren't they in the studio in Chicago? Why kept at home? That speaks volumes. We know the other couple had a reason for not being in Chi because they were expecting 4 kids.

It was a 2 people with 8 kids, no love,getting ready to divorce and we had a couple who loved each other having just your normal 4 kids.

Doesn't it ever strike you all strange that Oprah distanced herself from Kate when that divorce was announced? After all, she had just lied, lied, lied to Oprah on air about Renewing Their Vows Because blah blah blah, then how much later was the announcement of the divorce?

So Oprah has a thing about lies,remember that author she really did a number on who lied about his Book of the Month?

Doubt Kate could get even a magazine subscription to O magazine after that show.

Amy too said...

Not writing to The Talk or any other show, know why? She won't be on very many more shows, EVER AGAIN. Will be few and far between.

Hope she is saving her $$, learning to put the trash out, mow the 36 acres, clean her house, clean out the overhangs of leaves and ice. How to put a clean filter in the heater, etc.

Oh yeah, better get into that laundry room and learn to grab those clothes out of the dryer as soon as it stops to hang the clothes so they don't wringle as much.

I understand there are a lot of sales on irons this month, Household Sale Month at Target.

So, Chris, do you still answer the call you get out of NY about photos? Cause that is where they come from. I found it it is your p/t job and no one wants the pics of her any longer, even if she was sitting on SteveO's lap.

Mystical said...

DrBlog, yes, that's right. That's how delusional Kate Gosselin really is, and also how desperate she is to continue on with the exploitation of those kids lives.

Pegg Cath said...

Not a psychologist but did you ever notice Kate is either very high or very low? Is that bi polar? I know some said OCD, but I think there is a lot of craziness going on in her head to have screwed up her marriage with Jon, thinking she could have had a Brand without him.

Wow, as my husband said, that is one "real bitch" that isn't even worth sleeping with because her mouth would be correcting how Jon made love.

Very sad.

PS I do believe she had liposuction at the knees and thighs as her legs were tree trunks and you just don't get that disappearing when you have thick ankles all your life. She had a lot of work done, no wonder she disappeared.

Is she on another honeymoon with Steve? Guess so and the kids gotta be happy as hell.

RiseandShine said...

Protect8said...
Ther are many of us on GWOP who watched the Gosselin show from the beginning and realized fairly early on that Kate belittled, demeaned, purposefully humiliated and consistently spoke rudely to her children.
-----------------------------------
Not too long ago my daughter who is almost 25 was reading some magazine of hers and turned to me and said, "Wow, Mom, you nailed it". I asked her what she was talking about and she recounted the story about how when the show first started she happened upon it and loved it. She told me I should watch, that she thought I'd enjoy it too. We watched together.
At this point I knew exactly where she was heading. After that first viewing I was fascinated with the mechanics of taking care that many babies plus two older, instantly in love with the babies, and deeply disturbed about the mother. I told her I didn't think I could watch any more episodes because Kate had a horrible attitude -especially toward her husband - and that the whole thing wasn't going to end well.
I find it so sad that so many saw the same thing, we all "nailed it", and weren't able to help.

It makes sense said...

It has always been amazing to me that so many of us have thought that Kate was the Master Mind of the Operation or the Great Wizard of Oz, but I think now we are finding that Kate is the person who had a false personality that so many people in show business or TLC saw. That is called charisma and she had it as she was the regular Mom, 30 lbs overweight, pretty skin, pretty eyes, nice smile.

No real sense of dressing. Elastic waist pants and tops (so average Mom with very little money who just added 6 babies to total 8 kids) Most of all her hair was just that easy short dark hair that framed her face. She and Jon just looked like us,overwhelmed parents of so many kids and endeared us to them. So many of us knew that a Church going family was so back to basics and wonderful.A breath of fresh air, we thought.

What happened? This is the book that Jon should write. What in the world and "down below where the devil lives" caused a young woman to go from being a Mom to being a demanding, woman who can only get her hair done for $5 grand/who can only go first class plane/hotels/limo living in a Mansion on 36 acres of land and She orders people around from her children to anyone and I repeat anyone who is unfortunate enough to have to provide a service or make a living working for her.

A woman who now lies as if she is she taking a breath of air. So used to a monthly plastic surgeon appt to update the changes in her face, to tighten the knee caps and decrease the ankles to give a leg a shape up to her hip.Yes, the breast implants.

She went from paycheck to paycheck with twins to controlling millions of $$$$ and demanding from all who come in contact with her, whether they have a choice or not (even the Limo drivers are not allowed to look at her in the rear view mirror)

Yes, I am more intrigued by all of this. I hope that we as consumers never, ever are taken advantage of
again by someone who may and I repeat that "may" never have realized that they had the ability to draw viewers as BW said and that instead of seeking out great minds, like a BW, to perfect her charisma and "very slowly" took charge, along with her husband, of being the Reality Show that showed how difficult raising 8 children, their relationship not being put aside and she should have listened to people other than the Steve Neilds or whomever else put him in their house. Their marriage should have been worked on, instead we watched and heard about a family exploding from inside out and a destruction of what we thought was the All American Family living in Amish country.

One of the biggest Mistakes, Katie?
You were not the loving mother, Jon was the loving mother/father and all you did was sit and demand. Your kids were not allowed to be themselves, but 6 of the same, clothing, etc.
What we saw was a woman becoming obsessed with herself, forgetting the family,and trying to pretend thru plastic surgery that she was younger. No one gets younger. They get wiser and you, Katie, are still not able to do that. the short skirts, knees apart on The Talk was like the last straw for you. You are now a joke, bigger than ever.You wanted attention to the work done on your legs, oh yeah.


This Gosselin story will someday be one of the worse tales of 8 children who will absolutely become the joke of the world all because their mother was intrigued with a mirror more than the Family Structure.What you did and continue to do to Jon, well when Steve leaves and he will cause "he hasn't put a ring on it" Jon will be there to take those kids while you find our what it is like to be "used" which is what you have done to everyone from your parents on.

Can't Say said...

Some of us have always thought Kate was conniving because she's always been conniving. Remember what her brother said about her while painting with Jon? What did her ex-boyfriends have to say about her? How about the hospital co-workers? Has anyone who has actually known her and worked with her had anything good to say about her a couple years or so later?

I don't know her personally, but I know people who do. She's always been this way. She may have tried to cover it at first and being on TV may have magnified it, but it didn't change her into a different person.

Be glad to have quiet in the neighborhood said...

OMG, that video of the children was heart wrenching, wasn't it?

The only parent in that house who played with them, fed them, bathed them, read them stories and really loved being around them. He tried to be the love they weren't getting from the busy mother with a cell phone. How sad was that?

Look for the GMA interviews with Chris Cuomo with Jon or the Larry King interview with Jon. He really poured his heart out and also said that he "went through with all of the marriage counseling by himself" she would not go.

So Jon bombed with a couple of women and we don't know if all of this is right. We know he did fancy himself a playboy for about 8 months. Then he got his act together, moved close to the kids.

It is bad enough in life to have 1 or 2 or even 4 kids adjust to divorce or the times you see the other parent, but these G kids were screaming for him not to leave.

As we now know Katie reads us, lol, guess what, Katie no one likes you but Moma Baby would lick your heels if you needed it.

Kate, how does it feel to know that you not only sold your kids' for $$$ but you are not the parent the kids want to be with?

Guess SteveO will be leaving soon also, huh?

You never stopped talking on The Talk, blah, blah, blah, blah........you had that all practiced, you knew you had 4.5 min and you knew to occupy the conversation except when Ditzy Leah proved how ditzy she really is and that gave you time.....lucky you.

Wow, to be so hated/disliked/distrusted by your own children. Guess it means nothing to you, does it? You have no emotion, do you? NOPE.
