What Kate Has Lost

Let's all begin a list of hosts or co hosts or talk shows who no longer have Kate on and probably no longer answered her tweets/emails/calls/calls for help: Bill Bush Mary Hart Letterman Leno Meridith Veira Natalie Morales Oprah Barbara Walters Joy Behar The Insider Jimmy Fallon Rachael Ray Dr. Phil Dr. Oz Paula Deen No Cooking Shows at All, NONE None of the Mother Shows Now I know I missed a lot, but I also wanted to bring to everyone's attention that Kate does not have a column in ANY magazines like Good Housekeeping Redbook Oprah's Magazine Style Sure you folks can think of a few Also, there are all the Web sites that she does not have a column on like I Village (for women) Sure you folks can think of a few Now, there are also the stores, products that no longer give her free stuff: BJs Costco Jamboree Giant Milk Companies Diaper and Wet One Companies Juicy, Juicy again, your folks can come up with more. Started you on what I can call: The Clock That is Ticking Away the 15 minutes. PS No one took credit for her dress of her shoes, did they on these last 2 appearances? Beside Steve standing backstage during the Lopez show, was there any Paps outside to take her pic? There were paps outside, as there is when Stars enter thru the Stage Doors and when they exit the Stage door.None of them took her picture. Know why? It cost more money to take the pic/send it to the agencies than it returns as no one is interested in bidding for first publication on their websites.

Love, your article. It is food for thought. If Kate had been a 100% nicer, done charity work(between filmings), been nicer to paps, fans, and Jon and not made statements and then do the opposite and then can't remember what she has said or done, perhaps she would not have been written off as she is being. Or having people think she is a monster and a disgusting mother. JMO

The Coupon company (was it P and G?) that she was hawking must have given up on her after "coupon-gate"

The divorce is what really knocked off a lot of her potential. They tried with the single mother thing but it never caught on because Kate made a martyr of herself instead of playing it strong.

Kate could have been very successful in the media world as a wife and mother and I bet she knows it. She will never forgive Jon for exposing their separation instead of sleeping in his apartment above the garage and pretending to be in a real marriage like a good TLC slave. That's why she hates him so much.

What's K8G lost (sold)?

Her pride
Her dignity
Her integrity
Her marriage
Her family life
Her hope/expectation that she would be loved, admired, and envied by all

Her soul

Despite her past enormously high profile, the lack of visible commercial endorsements has always interested me. I've suspected for some time her contract with TLC is so exclusive that products that may have wanted the children (and her) in TV and print commercials weren't able to because of TLC, which wanted the control of their "star." While the money and exposure from TLC has been nice, Khart and Jon could have made much better deals if they hadn't sold their souls and limited themselves to the TV show. And now with Khart's horrible reputation and the kids rapidly aging out of any residual cuteness, the high income years are over. Khart will soon be stuck doing Celebrity Poker.

This would make sense. It's been the Jon's problem all along. Kate had a blind trust in TLC. She thought they loved her, they really loved her. She would have signed anything they put in front of her as long as they promised to take care of her kids. She was never emotionally or financially equipped to do it and thought TLC was the answer to all her prayers.

Ohio Buckeye--well said. What Kate has lost cannot be measured in $$, really--although the original post does make some good points.

Kate had a blind trust in TLC.
===========================

No, I think Kate was blinded to everything but her greed and need for fame. She was willing to sign the contract because she saw dollar signs, and I am very sorry, but I doubt Kate ever really prayed or was truly religious. That was just a front as well.

As far as Kate is concerned, she is still satisfied with the deal she made and selling her kids for profit. Only when the money is gone will she feel cheated.

Looks like Jon figured this out way before she did and she didn't listen to him...leading down the path to divorce. She's so clueless.

Monster Mommy said...

I agree with Jane, wholeheartedly. Kate has only played the religion card, when it is self-serving. I don't believe she prays for anything but herself. "Fame & Money... Amen."

She lost her religious fan-base (no more going to church, once the appearance cash cow dried up). She lost The 700 Club too. She's lost the lone INF Daily Pap most recently, and many formerly supportive Sheeple. (That sounds so funny, but it's true.)

Even Baby Mama can't figure out what she's blogging about anymore. One night Kate goes on Lopez, claiming she goes to the store with all the kids (religiously)... then the next day BM is saying Kate goes alone because she can.

BM says-- "Kate and the kids have hardly filmed at all this year. We discussed that at nauseum (SIC). But even when they filmed, Kate is their mother, and knew what was best for her family. Her (SIC) and Jon saved for a bigger new house...."

I believe the term is ad nauseam, and SHE and Jon saved (I realize you're tryin' to get ALL Latin on us... but Kate would be so cross with you, BM). Anyway, thinking it's okay to exploit your kids on camera, as long as you are able to get a big new house out of it, is insane.

readerlady said...

What Ohio Buckeye said! I would add only one thing - Kate has already lost the love, or at least the respect of some of her children (Mady, for example). More will follow. I can't think of anything sadder.

Respectfully, I beg to disagree --

IMO Katie Irene hates Jon because of the old green-eyed monster. She is jealous because he has had lots of girlfriends and now has a real job and a healthy relationship, while our lazy plastic-throned queen has to pay for her companionship (aka Purseboy). JMO

BM says-- "Kate and the kids have hardly filmed at all this year."

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

How does she figure? We've only just completed two months of "this year." Give Kate time! They filmed the crap out of them in Australia and New Zealand, and that was "this year!" They filmed at Giant, and that was "this year." That's a film shoot in January and February of "this year."

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

I agree 100%!! What will K8 do when the kids are old enough to realize what she has done to them? Will she take responsibility for her actions and apologize to them, claim they are ungrateful and get angry with them, or play the victim and blame TLC for the damage they've done to her family? Whatever she does, I hope the kids are able to ban together and be there for each other. Although I don't think Kate will allow that, she will pull the kids that don't verbalize their problems closer to her and shut the others out. Being asked to leave a kindergarten class is going to seem like small potatoes compared to the struggles these kids will face while growing up.

SwingsandRoundabouts said...

Ohio Buckeye, you're right on as usual. The saddest of all on your list is that she has lost her soul.

She has also lost her way, and there is little likelihood of her finding the right path... the right path back to a happy, whole and functioning family.

If she weren't so unlikable I might even begin to feel sorry for her.

pinkdiamond611 said...

The sad part is, I don't believe Kate thinks she lost ANYTHING. She wanted to be on TV, the attention, the pampering. She got it. She had the money to buy the body, hair, face she wished she had. It was never anything to do with providing for her family. It was always what Kate craved. She lost her family's happiness, to make herself happy. I agree with the others who saw such potential in the "brand" and just saw it all evaporate.

No Worry, Beef Curry said...

Some would say Kate has lost her looks. I have never personally found Kate Gosselin to be remotely attractive to begin with.... although, what she has done to herself in the past year is definitely a downgrade. She looks like a yellow-ish/orange-ish beast, was unleashed from an animated Disney flick, and transported into a Reality Show. It's unnatural.

She certainly has lost her mind. She has lost her ability to earn an honest living (her work ethic is pathetic). Saddest of all, she has lost most of her family & friends.

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

Eh. Maybe I would too, but you're right, she is so damn unlikeable. I have always said, Kindness & love to my fellow man, judge not lest ye be judged, etc etc...I have tried so hard giving Kate the benefit of the doubt, but ya know, she is just downright vile. What she has done to her children, her family, her husband, her friends...WHO, I ask, WHO would do those type of things to those they supposedly love?

Kate has lost her way, absolutely, her soul, yes, the respect of most of America & most likely other countries, and in the future, the love (possibly) and the trust (most definitely) of her kids. I could never live with myself if I knew my child couldn't trust me. That would just devastate me. Kate, all she cares about is fame, money & being in the public eye. When that is all said & done, which let's face it, is happening now, she will have no one. Another thing she has lost; everybody around her. Sad.

Jodie said...

Her husband, her family and friends that were considered family (Beth, the nanas we used to see, etc.). Granted, those were from her own doing, but I think that's the biggest loss, for both her and the kids. Sadly, she won't realize it for years to come.

I just don't get it said...

After reading these posts all I can think of is the last episode of Seinfield when everybody Seinfield and gang did wrong confronted them. And, the list of people was long. Just like Kate's. Not that this would happen to Kate, but it was be perfect for her to physically see all the people she lost (and threw away).

She is a Liar said...

I remember Billy Bush interviewing her, after she published that last book of her own writing "Letters to My Whatever"

Billy Bush noted her "new look" with the extensions of hair, blue eyes, nice figure.

But Billy Bush hits hard and he point blank asked her "Kate, do you have enough money right now to take care of your children?"

She hesitated with an answer,because Billy Bush said "you are receiving word from Jon and his lawyers that YOUR CHILDREN SHOULD NO LONGER BE ON TV, do not have to be on TV, even your brother and sister and law say it is bad to have the children continue on TV"

Again she hesitated and that ONE TEAR SHE HAS TRICKLES DOWN HER FACE. Nothing coming out of her mouth.

She finally said I have money, yes.
But I don't have enough money for all of my children to go to college and pay for college.

Oh my Lord, I thought I would go through the TV.

She was saying she had so much money but to get all 8 through and graduating from college she did not have enough money?

Well, Billy Bush did not like her answer and he said "but you could stop filming with the children right now and be comfortable?"

She said "I work (oh yes I work as if she is the worker Bee here) so that I can put food on the table and take care of my children.

Billy Bush looked so disgusted.

She has never appeared on his show since nor on Mario Lopez' show.

No one wants to hear that she needs money anymore.

No one wants to hear that her children love the crew as Dads.

No one wants to hear that her children like going to amusement parks in other States and not the Amusement parks near where they live.

Hmmmmmmmm Hershey Park, Pa. Ever heard of it folks? Ever heard of Chocolate Town?

My niece brought her 2 children here to PA this past Summer as they wanted to see Chocolate Town and Hershey Park and I drove them. One of the most amazing Amusement Parks, not far from Dorney Park and at least 3 or 4 of the biggest Amusement Parks in this state as well as NJ with Six Flags and also let us not forget the New Jersey Shore with so many Amusements, Boardwalks.

That bitch will say anything to get away from "Home" all she does is drag her kids to other amusement parks around the US and Australia.

Alaska? When the children were having fun learning about one of our greatest natural wonders of a State and she pulls those kids out of there so fast.

Psycho and Sociopath is a couple of words that come to mind when I think of her.

She never stops lying and Billy Bush did come right back at her with "you do not have enough money to stop filming and taking care of your children in a normal situation like other single parents?" and there was no answer.

What did she earn last year 3.7 million plus all the free face work and plastic surgery?

Living in a Mansion and those kids are prisoners.

What is wrong with the State of Pa.

Do they only investigate homes where maintenance is lacking and bypass the Mansions where Horror occurs.

Is she locking those kids in their bedrooms like she use to put them back in their cribs when they were babies and didn't take a 4 hr nap, so that they cried and cried and cried. What does all that crying do to a child.

How about children who sit in a crib crying, no hugging, no affection except when their father got home at night?

I ranted but Billy Bush called her a liar without saying the word liar.

Hope they find out someday that all this botox causing permanent damage to faces and lips.

so sick of her said...

You can add this to the list: Kate has it in her thinking that this is how real celebs live. That celebs have nannies, maids, cleaning people, pool people, landscapers, bodyguards, cooks,and trainers. Are pampered, nails, expensive hair salon, spa and tanning, plus buying the best clothes/latest style. Maybe some celebs do some of the above, but not all. Mostly the ultimate rich people live the above. Kate, 3-4 million does not make you ultimately rich. Most celebs like to live under the radar, for some sort of normal life. The only ones who party and cause trouble are the ones who got bit by the fame bug, and can't get over themselves. Look at Nicole Ritchie, all the stuff she did, for attention and now you hardly hear anything about her(cause she grew up, got over herself, and is raising kids now, and does want privacy. Kate complained about not having any privacy, then what she does calls the pap, and tells him I will be at Target, then tries to act surprised, that a pap is taking her pic. Then says there were several paps, when there was 1. Just like if she talks to a guy, in her mind they went on a date. She is one twisted person.

It's Oscar weekend and there is another! article out denying Jon and Kate will reconcile. First of all, I think Ms. Orange planted the seeds for these articles in order to get her name back out there so she can avoid thinking about how she is NOT part of Jimmy Kimmel's post Oscar special. Surely even she realizes that she would not be invited to the Oscars themselves. Now her "friends" are responding to the rumors with this little gem.

"Kate wants nothing more than to be seen in a completely different light than Jon is viewed," says the source. "Obviously he is the father of her children and that won't change, but she is feeling very happy about her decisions and situation."

She's really accomplished the above as all of America can see Jon is now the more responsible parent and a nice guy on top of that. And if you have to go around bellowing that you are happy with your decisions and situation, it's a good bet that you are not as happy and confident as you say. I can see the meltdown coming a mile away. Katie Irene, go to Walmoart now (it's cheaper than the uniform shop) and purchase some colored scrubs, pink, purple, rose, etc. to set you apart from your soon to be peers in the mental ward. You're a STAH, baby!

Pattypanda said...

Kate was interviewed again by Billie Bush when she did DWTS. I remember because I was so disgusted that he gave her 8 pairs of "dancing" shoes for the kids. It was like WTF, give some shoes to a kid that needs them - and I said him a note that said so.

Anonymous said...

What Kate has lost its the mental health of her children. Some are going to have long rows to hoe in the future. Kate would never admit it but there will be a time when Kate will wish none of this ever happened.

When was the last time there was an article about her on ROL? Used to be a daily, gushing, Kate worhipping occurence.

Sadly, I just read that she is on the cover of People's 2010 annual

Somebody at that magazine loves Kate for some reason.

So true!!! I know I read an interview with Martina McBride a few years back. The woman is one of country music's BIGGEST stars. She said she was driving a 1991 Honda Accord that she loved, that she drove her own kids to and from school EVERY DAY, and that while she does have a housekeeper, she does all of her own laundry.

One of Kate's biggest problems is that she has lost something she never actually had--extreme wealthiness. In this day and age, a few million dollars really isn't a lot of money. At least, it's not when you LIVE as though you are make a few million per month.

I am nearly positive she will lose that house. She does have a mortgage on it, correct? That's what kills me. As much money as they were making, there was no reason in all the world that Kate couldn't have paid CASH for a reasonable house. Yes, 8 kids probably needed more space than they had. But there's no way they needed all THAT. If she had really cared about their security, she would have bought them a "forever home" that they could own outright without a mortgage. There was no reason not to... except that Kate doesn't live within what she can afford. She has to have the best, and the biggest. She really, really isn't as rich enough to support her lifestyle.

Someone needs get Kate a copy of The Millionaire Next Door. Real millionaires just don't live the way she does.

barbee said...

The show she should watch is Beverly Hillbillies, she's got about as much Klass as Granny but she's sure not as funny!

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

How do people actually know that Kate has a mortgage. Maybe she paid cash for that house. Do any of us really care? I rather worry about my own situation. What is to be gained by wondering about her mortgage. Without actual facts, it seems a waste of time to speculate on things like her financial situation. Just sit back and watch it all unfold people. No need to be impatient. All good things must come to an end. She is an irrelevant turd now. Yesterday's news. Like I said before, it's cheap entertainment.

boo said...

I don't blame them for moving. There was nothing between them and the world but a front door. They had the cash, why not get a home with more space, more yard and a privacy fence. I dont' understand why they chose such a expensive to maintain home. Did they think they would have the cash flow necessary?

readerlady said...

Granny may not have been a classy lady but she had kindness, caring, generosity of spirit, and a loving heart. All qualities Khate lacks. Khate would never make a good hillbilly. I grew up in hillbilly country. Hillbillies may lack money, education, "class" and social standing, but they more than make up for it in acceptance, concern for neighbors and willingness to work hard. Again - all qualities Khate is lacking.

barbee said...

If the old house was still theirs (whoopsie, I mean hers, all hers) when she filed for divorce, WHY would, should, could a judge declare it (and NOT the McMansion) marital property? She got the big one, why would, should, could Jon not get the smaller one? Oh yeah, its the Commonwealth of PA, the wife gets everything, $$$$$$, kids, $$$$$$, house, $$$$$$.

Elspeth said...

Dividing marital property is based on the equity in the property at the time of divorce. They still had some equity in the Etown house. There was close to zero equity in the Wernersville property. They bought just before the bubble burst and the property's value was very near the mortgage that they took out on it. What Kate took on (or kept) was a big mortgage and being upside down in the house now has that hanging over her head. Jon actually was smart not to fight her over that.
