Google news said Kate was in NYC for a "pre-birthday" celebration - photos did not show Steve.

Hope the little ones were able to be with Dad!

House Sitter? said...

He chose to sit in the house for years and put up with her...

@@@@@@@@@

He did a heck of a lot more than sit in the house...watch some of those past episodes and see exactly what he did, and he didn't do it sitting on his tush. He took care of those children, brought her coffee in bed because she couldn't function early in the morning, not to mention bathing the kids, getting them ready for the day, changing diapers, filling her car with petrol, general maintenance, and the list goes on...
A sitter? Nope. Not at all.

Been wondering where Kate's lone papparazzi is? Well, unless there is another photographer out there named Chris Watts, it looks like he's been in Vancouver, Canada following Suri Cruise around.

See the credits under "Hot Cocoa Cowgirl"

Captain of the Titanic said...

Looks like Kate is on the move again. This time in NYC celebrating her birthday at STK (whatever that is).

"Kate Gosselin: Pre-Birthday Bash at STK!"

Captain of the Titanic said...

Is that Jamie walking alongside Kate in NYC? Wearing what looks like the exact same shoes, same hairdo, and carrying a pink phone like her friend, Kate.

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

So much for the rumour she had some lipo done on her legs. Kate, again, no mini skirts after 35. Stacey and Clinton's golden rule. You look desperate in that get up. And now the BFF is sporting the same hair do? Radaronline has her up front again. Here we go. Did Steve take the photos?

Aunt Chris said...

"Kate and a small group of friends." More commonly known as people who are paid to be around her for one reason or another.

HOpe this will take you to the NYC photos. What is the relationship between Jamie and Kate?

Pony said...

I couldn't help but notice - Kate is back to wearing just one diamond necklace. Wonder what's up with that? Did the relationship that the seconc necklace signified go sour?

Shoka's Understudy said...

Saw the pictures outside of STK of kate and crew. Of course, PurseBoy took the pictures. Wife of a pap said they have a pact not to take her picture. That one picture where her hair is going back a little bit and she is standing there at the white brick corner where the paint is peeling--she looks like a street hooker, on the corner, the way she is dressed.

Her hair looks so bad. She looks like she didn't even go to the salon before the big to-do to get it worked on. You would think after spending thousands and thousands of dollars on getting your hair worked on it would look a little better than how it was looking last night.

It is the weekend and I hope that Jon has the kids. Good for Jon and kids. Let kate have her bday party a weekend early. She'll have another one next weekend because it is her realish birthday and then the next one for the after bday party.

She must want to even the playing field because the tups got 3 count em 3 birthday partys.

Like I have always said, she is disgusting, or is it despicable? I forgot!! haha

barbee said...

The 'friends' are paid to be with her because the photographer 'dads' don't want to be with her (just the kids).

WHAT is with the childishly childISH expressions on most the birthday celebration pictures?

How does the 'girlfriend' count as a small 'group' of friends? And as bad as we think HER hair looks, the GF's looks worse.

The up close and personal face shots are looking a little hagard. Guess she isn't toning down her lifestyle at all.

You have to admit it - Kate has sure gotten a lot of mileage out of that little wristlet she is wearing in these pictures. She uses it a lot. I notice it because I have the same one.

barbee said...

Jamie is kate's 'bestest' friend ever (dummy doesn't even know the teenage phrase is best friends forever (BFF, NOT BFE). The pictures were certainly ridiculously ridiculous! WHAT would prompt so many odd looks in such a short time?

Maggie said...

Some other site said they were filming in a private room. And Steve was standing in the background as usual. Did any notice the champagne glass in the door next to Kate. Of course she was all smiles. One of photos on ROL shows a view of her backside that reveals her dress is way too short and clingy for a 36 year mother of 8.

It is very sad there is NEVER any family member that celebrates with Kate or her children for any occasions.

By the way, on ROL, it has a photo of Snookie dining at the same restaurant on the same night as Kate. I wonder if they bumped into each other.

so sick of her said...

Well, just saw the pics from FAO Schwartz, of Kate. There is one pic of Kate in which purseboy is pictured. She is with Jamie?, and not wearing a coat/jacket, like everyone else is in the back ground including Jamie & purseboy. What I find interesting is who took the pics: it says at the bottom of the pics: Just Jared. and if you look to see who posted these it is Kate. What's the matter no one buying pics of her and no one posting them? Is that strange or what?
http://justjared.buzznet.com/2011/03/19/kate-gosselin-fao-schwartz-stop/ So she had Jared take pics of her, is this the promo she did? had Jared take her pic? Is this Jamie tryin to be her twin? and it looks like she had her hair done and it looks like she did something to her face, it looks like it's tight!or Botoxed? Anyone?

so sick of her said...

Kate did have something done to her face: check out last nights pics and todays, the pics from today her eyebrows are more arched and her face is tight or she looks like she had a face peel or something, cause the night before, she is smiling to the rim, her eye brows are rounded and the next day, her smile is careful(like don't smile too much you will put a line there) Or she could be hung-over. It says that the temp was 71? in NYC, but everyone else in the pics all have coats or jackets on.

BerksPa said...

RE: Kate's FAO Pictures:

Just did a little 'fly on the wall' research about the photog agency. I guess everything we said about Kate paying for PR and having friends take pictures is pretty spot on...when you see FLYNET in the credits you will know that.

The Picture PR portion of FlyNet states:

I meant to say: Kate getting paid for Pictures...not Kate paying for PR...Flynet pays it's clients w/ what they get for releasing pictures.

Why is the front ot Kate's shirt tucked in? Her eyes always look lifeless to me. And Jamie ought to stop plucking her eyebrows to death.

__________

I think that Jon believed in the institution of marriage and wanted to make it work. He said he tried to get her to go to a marriage counselor and she refused. Perhaps he thought that things would get better, and for the sake of the children, the marriage deserved another chance. When she refused, it was the end of the line and there was nothing left in the relationship. He left. That doesn't mean he was weak or hen-pecked. It shows that at least he took the initiative to try to make a "go" of it.

Nope. That was YESTERDAY. High today was 50 and breezy; low 31. It was chilly today.

Pattypanda said...

How sad that Kate only has a bday "celebration" because it involves TLC filming and paying for it. No family, and one friend. Guess friend didn't get the memo that it was a "fancy" dinner in big NYC. Jamie wasn't allowed more than one pair of shoes for the weekend and Kate forgot to pack more than one little clutch that was intended for nighttime. She sure looks like she hit up the botox this morning, eyebrows are highly arched today and the frown lines between her eyes are gone. She looks a little hung over too. I guess Monday Steve will be at the bus stop taking pictures too. Wonder if all the kids are back in school. Can you imagine how hard it will be on the two expelled ones next year to have to attend full days of first grade, when they couldn't manage K or is it still preK. Keep up the good work Kate, they'll be the oldest graduating kids in the state of PA.

Ampersmom said...

When I look at the pictures of Kate in the black dress that are "straight" on, it is very obvious that Kate has an extremely boyish figure. There are no curves! Dear Kate, you need more of an hour glass type figure to do a dress this clingy.

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

It's "the look," not the same clothing. The shirt is different; the shoes they feature are not the same as the ones she is wearing. Her shoes are very high heels, while the ones they are advertising have shorter stack heels and different detailing. The black dress is totally different.

Who would want those shoes? ;-)

Hard to Keep Loving Jon said...

My beautiful 36 yr old daughter told me today she was horrified when she found out Khate was younger ---
she thought Khate was in her 40s!

And there's no doubt that Khate had "dental" work (as Kathy G would say).

Wonder how she feels about the new hairstyle, The Kate, being named for Kate Middleton and not herself? Bet that's a sore topic!

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

Nor did I! I took one look at the heels on her hooker shoes, and the heels on the ones shown in the photo (the same look) and saw right away they weren't the same shoes. Kate wouldn't have been caught dead wearing those squatty heels. Both pairs were equally ugly, though!

Jamie is wearing the 2nd necklace - you can see it in the FAO Schwarz photos. When Jamie goes back home Kate will wear them both again. That's been their pattern of wearing/sharing the necklaces for quite some time anyway.

In this full size pic you can see that Jamie is wearing the same diamond necklace as Kate.

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

The reason her shirt is tucked in is because she's showing off the fact she has a flat stomach. No other reason. And she went to the restaurant in New York because she wanted to be seen. Why not just go local like 99.9% of the world does on their birthday. Also, imagine the ego of it all. Superstar Kate with her plain Jane friend. What I can't understand is how Kate allowed Jamie to get her hair done like hers. Even the color is the same. I guess there is no threat there for Kate. Sorry Jamie, I'm sure you are a nice person. But what are you doing hanging around with that witch. Drinking buddies?

Janine said...

In the pic of Kate in the too small jeans and the flesh tone cheap fabric top, it clearly shows that her left eye is all black and blue above and below. The white part of her eye is discolored as well. Looks like a very nasty bruise. She looks like she is gritting her teeth as she fakes a smile. Did she have work done on that eye or did someone pop her one? Her eye looks so bad, I am surprised she appeared in public.

_______________________

Good point! Or what the consequences may have been if he had tried! There are so many things that must have gone on in that relationship that to judge his actions and criticize him for what he should have done is nothing more than speculation. None here has walked a few steps in his moccasins, let alone the proverbial mile.

mama san said...

Botox causes bruising. Kim Kardashian had it done on an episode. It was brutal what it did to her face, bruising and red marks. Yuk

Reading Observer said...

I truly feel sorry for her. She looks ridiculous in that outfit outside of FAO Schwartz when everyone is wearing a coat. She has jeans on that are those skinny jeans and meant for a teenage girl of about 13. Her shoes? Well, they are also a joke and her blouse is see thru. So, she is trying to attract attention and people do look at her.

She looks sad, not happy, her hair is string and white with a hint of something else.

This is a woman who was attractive a very long time ago. Whatever she believes she has done to better herself, she must have gotten that info out of a magazine for 20 year olds. Not for a mother of 8.

No matter how thin she gets, she will still have that too old face, the stringy hair and will not look attractive in anything she thinks she can wear.

Her small group of friends for dinner, as she steps out of the limo was Jaime,who is wearing the same clothing she wore at FAO Schwartz and Boobyguard with the same jeans on also. So, that was her party.

If a professional pap took her photo, arranged by TLC, she would have looked better. She once had thick hair. Good hair and now? String. Soon, she will be bald.

She looks sad, she looks spent as though she is worn out.

By the way, that wristlet is now $19 at the outlet in Limmerick, I saw it today, so why didn't she change that thing into her Lieber handcase for dinner with the black, too short dress and black heels?

Everyone who is anyone has an evening bag from Judith Lieber.

Oh, it wasn't in the 20 something magazine, maybe she should be reading the Oprah Magazine where the highest price items do appear and she should have TLC get her a stylist so that she might get a job.

Oh, I forgot, TLC is done with her, that is why she looked like some 20 yr old's mother in those photos and not the mother of 2 ten yr olds.

So, yes I do feel sorry for her. I would have liked to see her and Jon quietly work out their problems, she get a job in the media and Jon treated fairly.Then I would never have criticized her like this. But she continues her lying ways and look what happens. Very sad.

So, I guess this is Karma.

That green tee shirt from Tn foodbank would have looked better than the thin layer of material and those terrible jeans.

By the way, didn't Boobyguard look a bit long in the tooth in that photo? I mean even he use to look kind of good looking, but not now.

They all look really haggard. Must have been a magnum of champagne in that limo on the ride to NY.

Amy too said...

The Bodyguard, Steve, looking kind of miserable in that photo, huh?

Does he still live in the basement? Does he ever go home?

barbee said...

Great point, we've been told how many times by the sheeple to walk in her shoes, who would want to have walked in his shoes? He got up each morning, got the twins ready for school, served her coffee in bed, changed the tups, then left for work when he worked outside the home (until she demanded he come home to be mom so she could go out and be a star), he came home at night and immediately the kids were his through dinner, bathtime and bed. She in turn had the hard job of watching them with a house full of helpers, a 3-4 hour nap for them (by her own admissiion on tape) and two of them gone at school and then Jon came home. And that was only until she hit the road with her BG/BF (these letters are not to be confused with BFE-her teenish version of BFF- meaning bestest friend ever) and we all know BG/BF is bodyguard - WHAT a laugh - boyfriend - WHAT a joke!

So, anyway, Jon tried his best for about 9 years longer than the average guy would have, got tossed out, went a little crazy on his way back to being in the real world and is now in a nice relationship with a gal who actually likes and is good to his kids and is liked by them. That's a statement that doesn't even seem to go with kate's name. She shows little to no connection with her own kids, is always shown scowling when with them, is always shown smiling when she is away from them, even if it is just for a Target run (now THERE'S a real event worthy of 'pap' coverage).

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

I wouldn't read too much in to what may appear to be a bruised eye. Looks like eye shadow to me.

Aunt Chris said...

If that is eye shadow, why isn't it on both eyes?

barbee said...

personally, BG/BF may have a nice head of hair (unlike his charge and her head of straw/string) but he always looked kind of shrimpy. Kind of like 'em T A L L er!

Shoka's Understudy said...

Janine, where are the photos that you are talking about? Would love a link. Are these photos that were taken yesterday and it looks like she had botox done again? She must of had an appointment for Sat. morning after her birthday bash at STK.

I can't believe she lets Jamie wear that necklace and then she wears it again. What is the purpose of that?

On the Hollywood Life website, the pictures are on there at STK and the place where you click to go to the next picture is right there where it is blocking Jamies face but you can see her neck. She needs a neck lift, like you do in the drs. office in an hour like on the commercials.

I agree with the many childish facial expressions for the camera.

So many childish looks in such a short time span.

DUCK said...

Tami said....
LOL. I was talking about the fact that he stayed in the house and did not make a move to end the abusive relationship. ***********************************
I think Jon wanted the relationship to change and be treated fairly, wtih respect, love and kindness, but from what I saw on film-he loved being with those kids too much to be away from them. I think he was willing to stay so he could live daily in the same house with his kids. I could not imagine many circumstances that would cause me to leave my marriage, the biggest reason is I could not tolerate being away from my kids for any length of time or missing holidays, etc with them.

As far as the B day celebration-seems to me she has enough alone/friends grown up time and this is a special time to spend with your children.

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

This whole necklace thing with Jamie.... Kate has been wearing just one necklace for some time now. I laughed when I read that someone has deduced that Kate lets her BFF wear the other one when they are together and then takes it back at the end of their visit.
Does anyone really know for sure?
I think it is one of those stupid rumours that fly around and Kate loves it because it keeps her relevant.

Portrait Of Jennie said...

++++++++++++++++

I don't believe that I have ever seen anyone age as fast as she has. Just four short years ago she was young and natural-looking, fresh, pretty with a pixie-ish haircut. How could someone, in trying to do a make-over, get it so wrong? She's added 15 years in less than five.

so sick of her said...

There are pics of Kate leaving the Essex Hotel($350 and up a night)sunday and she is wearing a coat, and sandles. She is a laugh a minute. If you look at her face, she is not smiling ear to ear, Like she did on friday. Her expression, is almost , I better not smile or I will crease my face. It was also reported that she was at Ablo(expensive shoe store etc) and if you look in the limo she went on a shopping spree. The pics are at Zimbo. I think most people will not believe that crap anymore of poor struggling divorced mother of 8 nonsense. If she is tryin to say all mom are like her, then she must come from another planet. Most working moms are lucky to even get a hour to themselves. SHE IS DISGUSTING!

Everything she's chosen looks good on someone else, not on her. Each change she made she probably saw on someone that looked nothing like her, someone that looked how she wished to look. However it doesn't work that way. You have to make choices based on your own bone structure, colouring etc & so on, not Paris Hilton's. Yes, I'm sure in k8's narcissistic mind she & Paris or Kelly Ripa or whomever could pass for twins.

Being delusional & having the cash for plastic surgery & everything else is a bad combination.

You guys are cracking me up this morning--especially Aunt Chris!

Kia Ora said...

I've always thought purseboy was sqrawny for a "bodyguard" None of them looked too good the day after. I guess that loud music, hefty drinks, got to them at STK. They must think they are still young, for those kind of big "party" clubs.

so sick of her said...

Here is a comparison of Kate Gosselin(35) and Jersey Shores Sammi(23), both were at STK, friday night, both have on little black dresses. For Sammi it is appropriate dress, she is 23, single. Kate dress was too short and reminds me of women(in their 30's ) who hang in bars, tryin to pick-up guys and look silly. These pic are at:
http://www.radaronline.com/search/apachesolr_search/kate gosselin
Kate is tryin to re-live her 20's. It always amazes me how they picked apart Jon, for dressing as if he were in his 20's, but it is OK for Kate to dress like a 20 year old or a hooker, and that is OK. The sheeple think what Kate wears is OK, but Jon wears a t-shirt and they accuse him of dressing like a 20 year old. Guys wear t-shirts, it's a guy thing. What Kate wears is for 20 something bar hoppers, not a 35 year old mother of 8(yes count em 8) children. I makes her look silly and cheap etc.

Kia Ora said...

So Sick of Her- My sentiment too!

Amy too said...

Kate dressed as though she was in her 20s and never had given birth.

What a laugh to so many people, she gave birth to 8 children. Therefore, her days of running around in what is now termed "age inappropriate clothing" as my 21 yr old sister would say.

The younger crowd look at the mid to late 30s and over, divorced crowd, as lonely and desperate and that is how Kate dresses.

One of the web sites said that TLC was filming the dinner. Guess we will wait and see if that is correct.

Her Limo looked more like an older model Lincoln or Town Car, didn't like like a Limo to me. Especially not a stretch Limo, which she was use to at one time.

Wonder if she gets any birthday cards other than BM and her gang.

so sick of her said...

If Kate thinks by dressing that way, she will attract a rich guy, she is so wrong. The only guys she will attract, will be guys looking for rich, older women, who will taken care of them, not the other way around. Cause rich guys, see her as high maintenance, expensive, looking for a sugar daddy etc. and she has baggage. They don't want to lose their money on her. Kate reminds me somewhat of Anna Nicole Smith, she even looks a little like her and dress. JMO

When I looked at that Radaronline there was not a single comment under Kate's pictures.

Doesn't Radar usually have some real catfights between those who love her and those who realize what she really is.

I think that says a lot! Interest is cooling way down.

Hopefully, PurseBoy took the picture of the backseat of the limo with the cracked seats. It looked like it had taken a wagon load of kids to the prom and it didn't get cleaned out before it picked up kate and crew.

Hope she blasts PurseBoy for taking the picture!

She sure would of blasted Jon!!!

Shoka's Understudy said...

The shoes that she bought at the shoe store are pictured with her coming out of the shoe store.

They are some early 20 somethings shoes not for a 36 year old mother of 8, countem, 8!

The base on one shoe is so short that the length of the back of the shoe is much longer.

They all look like ankle breakers to me. She will regret wearing these ridulous shoes in a few years.

There's never a 90 wt. oil puddle laying on the sidewalk right outside the shoe store!

Doesn't she realize she is ruining her feet?

p.s. last fall for school, she bought 3 pair, almost what 1K? Remember what Mady said, She said that they need to tear out her mother's closet and build a bigger one to hold all her mother's shoes!

She is despicable! I remembered this time!

Shoka's Understudy said...

From Dictionary.com:

Haggard: having a gaunt, wasted, or exhausted appearance, as from prolonged suffering, exertion, or anxiety; worn: the haggard faces of the tired troops.

This fits the G8 perfectly. I saw the kids on the open bus in NYC and they looked so tired, exhausted and haggard.


PurseBoy, Jamie and kate also looked Haggard the next day from partying. So glad the kids got away from them for several days.

I thought it was a taxi until I saw the door panels behind her.

Reading Observer said...

All 3 of them look like they are worn out: Kate, Jaime and Boobyguard.

No light in their eyes, no decent clothing on. Jaime couldn't afford a new pair of jeans, wore them for 2 days but oh, she got to wear Kate's necklace. And I could swear that Boobyguard(someone post that and it fits) didn't look like he has a shine in his eyes any longer for Kate, who was practically nude with some kids pants on and a sheer rag of material.

If she really did leave those kids with a babysitter, didn't let Jon or family know she was out of State, then she puts those kids in danger.at risk.

Unless documents are written giving permission for a babysitter to act on a parent's behalf, if there were a hospital emergency, they need a parent or a legal document that the babysitter would have to seek treatment.

She no longer cares about her kids or did she ever?

Now, don't get me wrong girls, but if you buy 3.4 pr of shoes at Aldo for $325.00 then you aint exactly in the 5th Ave League in NY. Trumps' wife probably doesn't spend less than $1200 per pr and that is for sandals, so Kate has no stylist.

With a stylist, if Kate were drawing publicity, in magazines, etc., she would be wearing designer clothes, but she isn't.

She sits at home and orders from magazines and not exactly the class A mags either.

In order to wear a black dress like she wore, she would have to be 4'8", so it would come to her knee, which is where it should be.

Even her heels were not in style.

Me? I'm glad that the real Kate is out in the open, that she is fading faster than we thought and without any grace.

Tonight DWTS was delightful, some really sweet, funny, nice people who all seem to be having a good time with each other. Kirstie Alley put everyone to shame, which shows that you do not have to be supper skinny but you do have to work and she did at age 60, with a lot of laughs. Even Ralph Macchio who is 50 looked like Fred Astaire.

No one missed Kate's high drama, cause that is what Kate is, high drama.The Prima Donna who was.

I wish her a Happy 56th birthday cause that is what the insides of her body must be after carrying 6 babies in that uterus and a set of twins.

Bonnie Fuller is awesome! Well put!

I second the HollyBaby recommendation - a good read.

And it fits: she is the type of personality who is vindictive enough to want to punish anyone who goes against her. So keeping the kids away from their father out of spite? Yeah, I could see that.

Easily.

Poor Tony! His dance partner dances exactly like Kate. He was probably envious of Max. Max had a partner old enough to be Kate's mom but wow! She could really dance! I'll bet since this is the second season since the Kate fiasco they are finally realizing she added nothing to the show. It's so much better without her. Now if only they'd realize Kate+8 needs to go!

gherkin said...

NY Post Page Six has a blurb about Kate and her night time outing in NY to supposedly celebrate her birthday. They said the camera crew was in tow and the purpose was for Kate to pick up men---said she was chatting up a number of men, but there is some speculation they were paid actors! Ha! I'm sure TLC set it all up to add a new dimension to the show. I would bet at some point there will be some type of bachelorette show for Kate. Pathetic. It is funny though because all of the comments on Page Six are negative to the point of being hateful.

Reading Observer said...

Can you imagine what the last of the TLC (Kate Gosselin) management team is thinking?

Here they try to change Katie's image with a Food Bank and giving back. She shows more interest in a Nascar than feeding people.

Well, she blew that out of the water with a Limo ride to NY, FAO Schwartz for expensive New Toys, New shoes, not 1 pr but 3 or 4 pr. Then off to the trendy nightclub/rest for an expensive dinner. Oh yeah, add all the jewelry, bodyguard and paid assistant.

Yep, she gives back, only she gives back SOMEONE ELSE' dollar not her own.She flaunts her money but to flaunt Aldo shoes? They are in every Mall in America. I bought sandals myself, on sale, for $29.00 last year. Why go to NY to buy them when she could have avoided the high sale's tax in NY.

And where did the Mother of the Year (she gave herself that title) leave those 8 other employees of TLC? With a hired, minimum wage babysitter, not with their father or family and didn't even tell the father she was going to be out of State in case of an emergency, not verified but alleged.

Yep, not much more than the folks on this Blog can tell TLC on how to change Kate's IMAGE.

The 9 Gosselins has "jumped the shark" in more ways than one.

Steve Neild should be disappearing soon also. That will be the last of the expenses TLC will pay for.

Did you notice, no more filming on the McMansion's grounds? TLC does not film there, so no longer paying those expenses.

Her show is now a "filler" and if these shows that were filmed are needed, they get put in as replacement fillers. Not like she has a regular weekly show.

She better hang onto her dollars as the clock is ticking down.

DWTS: Tony had a nice person to try to dance with. Wendy is not Kate, she is not a prima donna. She is a very friendly caring personality that wanted to live out a dream, to learn to ballroom dance. I give her credit for trying.

Tony was happy with Wendy, not stressed as he was with Kate. Perhaps Wendy will be the first one voted off, but we will still love Wendy.

Always reading the Kate drew the viewers during her session of DWTS. I don't believe that. I know why I watched, I wanted to see her and Jake Pavelka make fools of themselves and guess what? They did.

The public knows phonies and eventually, guess what? They wise up.

Bye bye Kate. Your mean personality made people take a second look at you during DWTS and that was the end of your BRAND.

Wendy will just continue with her show, write more books, give more people opportunities to show their talent. A good person. Credit for living out a dream with dignity, personality and Tony likes her, no prima donna.

From the New York Post, Page Six, Today's date:

Momzilla Kate Gosselin -- with her ever-present film crew -- is on the prowl again for a new man. The over-coiffed TLC "Kate Plus 8" star, whose divorce from the father of her eight kids, Ed Hardy mannequin Jon Gosselin, was finalized last year, headed to 230 Fifth on Friday night in search of romance, or a reality-TV version of it. A spy reports, "It was supposed to be Kate's 36th birthday celebration, but it was all about meeting men. She was all dolled up in a black cocktail dress, brought a camera crew and was chatting up a lot of guys. It wasn't clear if they were actors or not." A TLC rep didn't get back to us.

kate can't do sh** said...
This whole necklace thing with Jamie.... Kate has been wearing just one necklace for some time now. I laughed when I read that someone has deduced that Kate lets her BFF wear the other one when they are together and then takes it back at the end of their visit.
Does anyone really know for sure?
I think it is one of those stupid rumours that fly around and Kate loves it because it keeps her relevant.

*********

Everyone has a choice whether or not to believe the 'rumor' that has been going on for almost 2 years now about Kate and Jamie and the necklace sharing, but there are @ 2 years of photos documenting that it happens.

If it happened just once or twice, I'd say it was a coincidence, but it happens every time they're together and every time Kate is photographed when Jamie is gone. If you go back through the photos taken of Kate you'll see what everyone is talking about.

Dream A Little Dream said...

Can you imagine what the last of the TLC (Kate Gosselin) management team is thinking?

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

Isn't it possible that TLC sanctioned this trip and paid for the entire thing? If so, the management team gave its approval. It's no coincidence that every time she returns from a major filming, that TLC "rewards" her with a trip somewhere, or some kind of perks for the purpose of getting her out there as a promo tool for the next show. They don't care if she's embarking on a "giving" campaign or not; what's important is that she's in the media right now.

"Did you notice, no more filming on the McMansion's grounds? TLC does not film there, so no longer paying those expenses."

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

I'm not sure that anyone knows what TLC does or doesn't pay for since the contract has not been made public. They could very well paid for expenses as long as she is under contract with them and they continue to film, regardless of where it is.

If it was being filmed by TLC for Kate's show, I can imagine the kind of guys who would stop to chat w/Kate -- especially with Steve in attendance! These guys were wanna-bes either hoping for camera time or they were in on the "joke" in the first place, but you can bet one thing -- they have to have been turned off by her cackle and fake come-on to them.

Gaby said...

Will the media ever stop using snide remarks when it comes to Jon wearing Ed Hardy clothes?? It seems like the media won't let go of it. Seriously, what Jon wears is no one's business.Wearing Ed Hardy's doesn't make him a bad person. They (media) keeps playing on the fact that Jon was trying to regain his youth. However, the they hardly ever comment of the fact that Kate dresses like a fifteen year old (wearing tight jeans, haltertops, and short- shorts.) It seems that Kate is the one who is deperately trying to look younger, yet there is never any mention of it.

Poor Jon. It's not fair that the media won't let the Ed Hardy thing go. And they make it look like he was wearing those clothes BEFORE Kate gave him the boot. As I recall, he didn't do the Ed Hardy thing until after she told him she was ending things.

****

You know, I never thought about this before.....here in PA, there is no tax on clothing and shoes. People from NJ and NY come here in droves on the weekends to shop at the outlets in the Poconos. There are great outlets on rt 30 in Lancaster, and in Reading, and in Limerick (near PhillY) that are all easily accessible to Kate. And what about the KoP mall or the Chestnut/Walnut shopping area in downtown Philly?

Heck, she's not a struggling single mom! She's just thumbing her nose at the commoners! I'm someone who goes about 20 miles down to DE (no sales tax) for big-ticket items.

Juxtaposing the "Giving Back" with the "Excessive NY Spending" does not work. How many meals for the homeless in TN could you buy for the cost of one pair of shoes at Aldo? Or one drink at that fancy roof top club? For that matter, how many gallons of organic milk, for the children that deserve everything on a golden platter?

Those children DO deserve more time with their father.

Kate is a hypocrite.

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

But there are no photo ops at the outlets. TLC is not filming at Tanger Outlet on Route 30 in Lancaster, or the VF Outlet Center in Reading. As long as TLC is filming and footing the bill, why would Kate want to drive to the outlets and spend her own money when it's very easy to let someone else pick up the tab? I have no idea what she does or does not declare on her income tax as gifts, or how that entire scenario plays out as far as reporting expenses and what's taxable and what's not, but I would think that she and her accountant make it work to her benefit.

That has to be one of the worst pictures ever of Kate. Wow, what's with those eyes. This has to be a picture of Kate hung over. Her jacket is comical. All of those up thread who said she needs a stylist are right.

I keep comparing her to Samantha Brown on the travel channel. She is such a class act - her choice of clothing just perfect. She keeps a low profile with natural looking makeup and such a nice demeanor. She treats everyone with whom she comes in contact with such grace. I wonder if she would be willing to spend time with Kate............oh what am I thinking - Kate will never change. She is just a country bumpkin in hooker clothing.

fidosmommy said...

Re: Jon and Ed Hardy shirts.

We discussed this when it was going on. It was surmised that he had become yachting buddies with Christian A. (can't recall last name but it started with A). Also
that Jon hoped to be employed by this person, and wore his brand as
free advertising. We figured Jon got a boxful t-shirts to do this.
Turned out, Jon just looked the fool in those shirts and got nothing out of it except foolish shirts.

Who would want a woman who has 8, count them 8, kids. In the real world it would be an extraordinary man (and they do exist) who would love 8 children as his own. IMO in this case, all the man would want would be the money and fame. The kids are just baggage.

So, now what is all this garbage about Kate not being there for the new DWTS? What a bunch of crap. Is this Kate's PR tryin to stir up BS, cause maybe DWTS did not invite her, and for what reason, she is not part of this new show, what bunch of crap. And now this looking for a man, is this K8 episode to be called Kate takes a birthday vacation looking for a guy? Like I said earlier, about the way she is dressed: she reminds me of women in their 30's who hang in bars, tryin to pick-up guys and look silly. And can add cheap and desparate. I think cause it was filmed, TLC hired some guys to talk to her. Cause, does it not sound right, that nothing was twitter about any guy talking to Kate or her flirting with them? IN fact no one reported(on twitter) that Kate was even at this bar or at the other STK, I THINK IT WAS STAGED! Kate can't stand the fact that Jon is happy, now in a relationship and had past recent relationships, and Kate can't get one! :)

No I don't know what the contract says, but if TLC films on the ATM's property, they pay the expenses. That is a known accountant trick called "expenses" and if they don't pay the expenses than Katie/phony mother writes off her property and expenses as a place where "she earns a living" ...if she wears a pair of shoes, dress and it is filmed for TLC show, then she writes it off, like a uniform.

Good accountants know what to do for both TLC and Katie/phony mother.

BTW Katie, did you know that the Jersey Shore kids are making more money than you? Yep, the got a Brand, did you ask Jaime who was at the same club you were at Saturday, or even Snooki? ha ha ha ha

barbee said...

Comments about her not being at DWTS last night are because Florence Henderson and Jennifer Grey were there and probably others that I didn't see. She screws herself up so bad wherever she appears that she is a constant no show when it comes to being asked back. Will be interesting to see if any of the regular channel shows have her on before her 4/4 FARCE.

so sick of her said...

Oh, another thing that was mentioned in recent articles of Katiepoos NYC birthday trip: She was there to promote K8. What promo? She was not on any Talk show, Radio show? Interview? So what was she promoting, her body? Tryin to make it appear she was promoting, I'm chasing guys? Buying spree? WHAT? She just made herself STUPID!

Wife of a pap said...

Kate was not invited to DWTS and that is why the trip to NY.

She has ruined her reputation, her children, her marriage, her credibility with interviewers, especially B. Walters and Whoopi

Stupid is as stupid does. She did it herself, ruined her "fell in her lap career" by showing her true personality.

She would have to marry Prince Harry to get press at this point. And we know that is not going to happen.

Someone said Stick a Fork in Her, she is done, is so right.

None of the Agencies handling the Paps got requests to film her last weekend, so I have no idea where those photos came from but she looked terrible. Posing against the wall, with the paint coming off the wall? Wasn't exactly a red carpet was it? Naw. If the Paps were after her, they would have taken nice photos in front of the Essex house or the restaurant or nightclub, not in an alley.

so sick of her said...

Does anyone else notice how staged this trip was? And how info is being put out a little at a time. First, there the early party at STK, then we hear she is without kids and with BBF, and purseboy. Then they kick some people out of STK, so Kate can come in. then the limo, then next day FAO Schwartz, then leaving Essex House. Next comes the pics of shoe buying, and she was there to promo K8, now she was at 320 whatever bar, tryin to pick-up guys the first night she was there, but now they are saying that she, was dancing with BBF and one guy shaved head, pulled her aside to dance with, then she was spending most of time with. What's next she admits to botox, hair appointment, taking this guy back to hotel for night? what? IT'S ALL STAGED, even a few of the articles are saying that theses guys are paid actors. Doesn't sound right.

1momski said...

Really, Kate is just trying to stir up controversy and publicity with this NYC trip. She is trying to whip up interest so someone watches her lame show on 4/4. Why else would she reported to be out at a club looking for a man? Next you here that Jon didn't have the kids. The pap pictures don't seem right either, they look staged. Well, I am not buying into this. I wouldn't watch Kate exploit her kids on TV again no matter what their pathetic mother did.

It is amazing how Kate has ruined 10 lives, isn't it?

Have no way to know if those little prisoners in the Castle can telephone their father, but I sure hope the twins can.

The children, as they get older, will be so divided by allegiance to the parents.

Saw a video of K & J taking Leah out for her day alone at a pumped air jungle gym. Leah couldn't stop laughing and J & K seemed in love, but Kate's inability to say nice things to Jon is always on the tip on her tongue. Was she always that way? Sarcastic, with terrible faces she makes, even if the afternoon is going well.

I guess she wasn't happy then either, but Jon was "over the moon happy and thrilled to be playing with his daughter" but K found a problem with touching equipment "other people touched" now as Wife of Pap said, "she poses for pictures in front of a wall, with paint flaking off, called an alley"

Think a lot of people touched those walls in that alley. What a background for a photo.

It is very sad as this woman was never happy and never going to be happy.

Written in the cards.
Her appearance seems to be her only important factor.

barbee said...

Yeah, she didn't want to touch something other people touched but she'd walk barefoot in NYC? Is she just frickin nuts?

A lot of 'pap' pics show real stars not acknowledging the camera. You get shots of her with her usual scowl, then she notices Chris and the camera and WOW, blinding toothy grin. Or coming out of a store not looking at anything but with a HUGE smile on her face. Who walks around with a stoopid grin on their face like that?

Was just thinking to myself, I cannot think of ONE OTHER PERSON WHO DISGUSTS ME LIKE SHE DOES. It is truly impossible for me to think of one thing about her that I like or could say anything nice about. And, yes, we all know that is just MY feeling, but just like HER, when it comes to stuff like her, I ONLY care about what I feel. It is hard to fathom business people that would reward her to the extent they have for nothing. There is not one thing that warrants her reaping the $$$$$$, things, trips, stuff, whatever, that she has. And if this sounds petty or jealous, it is just disgust. Reward the REAL single moms working a couple of jobs to feed their kids or the spouses of deployed service members who are struggling. Don't keep giving this ungrateful, undeserving broad everything on a 'gold platter'. Hey, stupid, the actual phrase is silver platter, but of course SHE would feel for them silver isn't good enough, surprised she didn't suggest platinum!

Not Kathie Lee fan quoted Wife of Pap as saying: "she poses for pictures in front of a wall, with paint flaking off, called an alley"

^^^^^^^^^

That's not a direct quote. Pap Wife said, "Posing against the wall, with the paint coming off the wall? Wasn't exactly a red carpet was it? Naw. If the Paps were after her, they would have taken nice photos in front of the Essex house or the restaurant or nightclub, not in an alley."

I think perhaps if posters are going to be direct quoting other posters, statements shouldn't be taken out of context, words changed, and then using quotation marks to make it appear that this is the direct quote. JMO, of course.

With a stylist, if Kate were drawing publicity, in magazines, etc., she would be wearing designer clothes, but she isn't.

She needs a stylist SO badly. I shop at Aldo sometimes. A sale perhaps, or special occasions. I also read Glamour, InStyle & Vogue. I may not live in a big city where fashion is revered, but I always dress as a "do", it's just what I like to do. It makes me feel better. Kate is so desperately in need of a stylist, it's pathetic. She really does not dress for her age at all. I am not saying mom jeans or anything like that. But she could really switch things up & dress for her body type. She accentuates the wrong things. She usually shows off her girls, which is fine, if your NOT showing leg. Don't give away too much, or you look cheap. And the strappy gladiator sandals on her make her look stumpy. Pumps would be much better for her, & elongate her legs. No more spaghetti straps either. She has great legs, but her skirts are too damn short.

She needs help in the clothing department, NOW! I'm sure though, that no stylist would touch her with a 10 foot pole. She isn't fashionista material, or popular enough & she NEVER makes it into GOOD magazines. Nor, would she make a cover like Vogue, etc. She does not have "the look". Too orange, too stout, too fake...I have been reading fashion magazines since I could read. I was going to get into fashion, but stuff happens, like husbands & child. lol Anyway, all JMO. :)

Did you notice, no more filming on the McMansion's grounds? TLC does not film there, so no longer paying those expenses.

No, I don't watch, BUT one would think that it would be cheaper to film there, wouldn't it? And more moms could relate right? I know there are people that come here & on other blogs that say they are in the know, & some of us take that with a grain of salt, but someone once posted that the uggo Kate & TLC would be filming more at the house so viewers could "relate" more to the family, & to cut back on expenses. Ummmm, all they have done is travel, travel, travel. I know this is like beating a dead horse, but who the hell can relate to that? NOBODY. No ordinary, working class family can just pack it up & say, "we're going to Australia for 2 fun-filled weeks kids!".

Whatever. Again, I don't watch, & I hope no one does. I honestly think with her being out of the spotlight for so long, the only people that actually care are the bloggers. What will she do next? Who cares. Her ratings will tank. There may be some interest in her 1st show because some people just can't tune out. But I want to ask this; is she worth your precious, relaxing TV time?

Reading news said...

In the New York post picture of Kate in her bellhop jacket I see that she is in a hurry to start wearing her big white purse. Nothing like rushing the seasons!

Dumb as can be said...

Someone mentioned filming at the McMansion would make Moms relate to Kate? What are you kidding? How many people do you know who live like that?

I do think it is probably cheaper to fly her and those kids to Australia, as the trip was probably free, since every co host (like Chelsea Handler, Oprah Winfrey) did exactly the same thing to promote Australia. They didn't pay either.

To put those lights in the house and go through all the things a TV station has to go thru, I would imagine, costs a fortune, UNLESS the show was not going to be on too much longer, huh?

Famous people do have photos taken and ignore the photographers, like the Brad Pit group, etc., But they have talent and have been around for a long time.

Kate use to have a stylist, remember when she use to appear on Good Housekeeping, with the sweater sets and nice skirts? The cute Bob hair do, even appear on Bonnie Hunt and Ellen dressed like that, as well as Rachel Ray and The View? Well, now we have the real Kate Gosselin.

Now, no stylist, so fast forward to George Lopez and Kate can't keep her legs together,

JMO too. Yet, I do think if Kate was having a big pre birthday celebration or go to DWTS and sit in the audience with the STARS, well, she would have flown her ass out to L.A., to hobnob with the celebrities and be on TV, sitting in the audience.

How do we know that Tony and the judges just didn't think she was what they wanted in the audience? She hasn't been there since the season she was on, so this is the second show without her in the audience and DWTS always has Stars in the front rows, always.

No, Kate has burned her bridges.

Why do we post, why do we read the posts? Because we are shocked that these children became ATMs and she runs around spending money, abusing her children.

How sad that Alexis and Collin were asked to leave school. Kate can't even go up to the school without her bodyguard and talk it out with the counselors. Yeah, I do know that. She was offended by her children and the school.

Let me know the next time Meredith Viera does an interview with Kate, okay?

I believe wife of a pap. Who did take the pics in NY? Steve, Jaime, the town car driver? The bellman at the Essex house? Who? Not photographers who sell to the big companies like ET, etc.

"Kate use to have a stylist, remember when she use to appear on Good Housekeeping, with the sweater sets and nice skirts?"
@@@@@@

The "stylist" was provided by the magazine to get ready for the shoot. It's standard in the industry. If she once again appears on covers or in magazines she will have a make-up artist, a wardrobe gal, and whatever the media deems necessary to assure a perfect shoot.


"How do we know that Tony and the judges just didn't think she was what they wanted in the audience?"

@@@@@@@

I'm not sure that Tony (or the judges) are the ones who decide who is invited to the show. I would think that would be up to the network.

Has it been CONFIRMED anywhere that she was not invited to any of this season's shows? Maybe she'll be back for another wonderful stint as correspondent! Gee...I hope not!

fidosmommy said...

I'm not sure why we would want the show taped at the McMansion. I thought the whole thing we were pushing is a normal childhood for these children. To film in the house is to take away the one thing they do have - a little privacy. Although I object to
the trips, trips, trips, I would object more to having their home
invaded again so we could look into
their kitchen and see what they're eating.

I guess the only answer that takes care of both issues is to see the show cancelled. I would vote for that.

hayden said...

so sick of her said: ..."Kate can't stand the fact that Jon is happy, now in a relationship and had past recent relationships, and Kate can't get one! :)
----------------------------------

You are dead on about the "can't get one" part, in fact Kate all but said as much in the last People interview. She seems to be baffled that no men are throwing themselves at her mansion gates. She all but came out and said she thinks she's smoking hot, where are all the men? Completely blocking out the fact that America has watched her act like a maniacal shrew who is mean to little kids and animals on TV for the last 3-4 years. She blamed "her baggage" i.e the kids, for scaring men away. If she was a truly wonderful, caring, loving, down to earth person- 12,14,16 kids wouldn't scare a man away. And when Kate says where are all the men, she means "where are all the RICH & HOT or PRO ATHLETE men?" I'm sure men have approached Kate, but she is surely only looking for those who have 6+ zeros in their bank accounts.

Even when Kate hooked up with Jon, it is a widely held notion that she loved Dr. Gosselin's money and status more than she loved Jon. Kate seems to be unable to love without conditions or agenda. This extends to her children. She treats them as if they "owe" her something, like they need to earn their keep and repay her (literally) for her 30 weeks of bedrest and for the care she has to give them. The same care WE ALL give our children unconditionaly as part of our decision to bring them into this world.

So.... because Kate is so superficial, she probably doesn't understand how Jon has managed to be in a relationship for a year now. She is unable to comprehend that two people can be in love *with each other* not a bank account, not washboard abs, not for what one person can do for the other. It's pitifully sad and she will be alone for a very, very long time because of it.

Sunrise, Sunset said...

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

The men are familiar with her talents for emasculation, and they value their balls too much. Men aren't stupid (although she probably thinks most of them have only half a brain).

Good points, Hayden. Kate's superficiality is what's causing her downfall, and will be what finally does her in. The sad thing is that she just doesn't get it.

how pathetic said...

The NY pix just scream desperate staged photo ops. Real celebrities are a dime a dozen on the streets of NY. On my last three visits to NY, I saw Cameron Diaz, Jon Voight, and Scary Spice (gorgeous, btw). All three were shopping alone, without bodyguards or paparazzi and with no one bothering them. None of them were in full hair and makeup and none of them were spraytanned. And then there's kate..a has-been non-celebrity who is 'followed' throughout her weekend in NY? I don't think so. What a freak she is. The paparazzi are no longer interested on her so she arranges for someone to take her pictures paparazzi-style and sells them to whoever will accept them. She is such a nobody and is so desperate to be in the tabloids that she'll orchestrate her own paparazzi. Wow, is that pathetic or what? I have a feeling that the summer if her divorce, when she really was a paparazzi target, was the best time of her life when it should have been the worst. She is just dying to go back to that time when anyone gave a rip about her. Sorry Kate. It's over. Haha

She knows my name said...

Yes, Kate never got a date out of the Emmy dance number did she? The audience booed when she was even mentioned.

Who is going to ruin their career to date her? Who?

She is not going to find another guy like Jon with a rich dad, not in their late 30s or early 40s. And she definitely is not going to attract a younger guy. 8 kids with all kinds of problems from filming? That scares me.

She can travel to Australia and she will not get a date, lol lol

She can jog the streets with those tight clothes and the boobs jumping all over the place and the most she will be lucky to get is a car honking it's horn to say "watch those jugs on the road"

No, I don't feel sorry for her. I don't like her and I don't like her behavior in the neighborhood or the way she has treated people she knew.

The source? Me, myself. My encounters with that woman have been a nightmare. "Don't you know who I am"....and me almost losing my job over her? No, I don't like her and I'm glad the true person is being seen by the public, finally.

She is a mean person.

Peace on the roads said...

Are there worse people in the world? Is she as unhappy as we think? Is she use to living as an unhappy person? As for me, I do know that whenever I feel bored, I check in and see what is happening. Sometimes I don't post for weeks and months or even read, but then I catch up and I laugh and laugh and laugh, cause she always manages to stay on TV someway, somehow, but this venture to NY in that car with the cracked leather seats? Her outfit in the jeans that were 2 sizes too small and a sheer blouse while everyone around her was in a jacket and some with scarves was truly SAD KATE GOSSELIN. I just want to add one more thing, she made her life this way. She did not have to sacrifice her children and her husband to walk around in tiny pants on spiked heels with her toes hanging over the tips of the shoes.(she has a big toe too large for those shoes, so she wears open toed shoes, notice that) It was all her decision. Her anger is obvious though, not the sweet Kate from on The View and gaining all that pity during the divorce. She was in PR heaven as Joy Behar would say. But she entered a fickle world, a world of smoke and mirrors. I have a dear relative who does work behind the scenes in that industry and she wouldn't go to the Oscars or any of the shows as she knows what goes on in front of the cameras. She lives a quiet life behind the scenes and watches the Stars come and go. And Kate really was never a Star but her children were. So filming in that house now, would not be the same as 4 or 5 yrs ago when the children were small, happy and fun to watch, they now have grown and they have become aware of the camera, so they are no longer cute when they hit each other, not at almost 7 yrs of age, that is not cute nor is beating them with a spoon at that age cute. Or the screaming which was never necessary, but she thought she was the all American mother, she never was that. She was a carnival act that didn't last too long.

Ncgirl said...

Kate was at the finale of Dancing with the Stars last season. I was rooting for Jennifer Grey and noticed Mary Hart and this blond woman. Then I realized the blond woman was Kate. I have not watched Kate plus 8, and she looked so different.

She wasn't talked about on DWTS. She did stuff for Entertainment Tonight at the beginning of Skating with the Stars so that's why she was there.

If Kate thinks there are any guys that are fans of hers, she's the one with half a brain. All the sheeple are women (at least I'm assuming) who want their lives to be just like Kates. To be rich and popular and travel to different places, who justify belittling your husband "because he was acting like a child and didn't help out enough."

Real men (and women) know the true Kate. No one wants anything to do with her.

______________

Sorry if this is dumb, but I always wondered: when Jon & Kate were going through their divorce and they actually DID have paparazzi, was Kate secretly thrilled by the attention, and pretended to loathe it for the cameras? Or did she honestly hate it, and once they disappeared, realized she enjoyed it?

Tami said...

*******
In waiting rooms, at the gym, etc, I'll sometimes read a bunch of the tabloids. They always have pics of big name stars doing mundane things like walking down a street or shopping. But gone are the days when they are going to put Kate on those pages. They are not going to show her at Kinkos in any of the magazines. Places like INF, Radaronline, TMZ, those are the sites that she is selling her "pap" pictures. They are not going to generate much interest at all.

As for shopping around a dating show, that has been painfully obvious for many months. She did the talk show rounds when they still had her on, talking about how she wants a man so badly. And she specified what kinds of men she wanted. So..I believe her upcoming show that they were maybe just filming will be regarding Kate trying to get a date. Of course it will all be fake and staged. I just don't think she would put out so many quotes (and ahve her hired friends put out quotes as well) that she is lonely, wants a man, etc, unless there was some sort of motive.

how pathetic said...

Smiley, I think Kate LOVED the paparazzi attention, even when they were truly intrusive and staked out in front of the house. She bitches about it but I think she loved it. She made sure to dress up and have her hair and makeup done. She made sure to hang out on her driveway daily. And she cannot resist mentioning the paparazzi anytime she is interviewed. She still claims that they follow her, even though those days are long gone and only lasted for about a year or so. She managed to stretch out her paparazzi shelf life by aggressively pursuing the paparazzi herself (calling them and arranging to meet somewhere and be photographed). Now even that isn't working anymore because the paps hate her and hardly anyone is paying for her pictures anymore. But yes, I think she was in narcissist heaven when the paps paid attention to her. Loved it so much that she's stooped to inventing fake paparazzi attention for herself (from Steve or another acquaintance). She IS pathetic.

Brummygirl said...

Charles Dickens' novel "Great Expectations" should have been the title of Kate's show.
(Tongue in cheek)...Indeed, I can see her ending up like Miss Haversham, the old bride who shut herself up in her cobweb ridden house, waiting, waiting, waiting for someone to call!!

LancNative said...

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

Great analogy, Brummy. I always saw her as Bette Davis in "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?" The fading, has-been celebrity, sitting in her house in full make-up and costume, drinking and watching those film clips of her glory days over and over again.

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

I agree also. I was posting what I saw before. I don't think TLC should film the kids at home or traveling or giving back or getting off the bus or anything. I also don't think TLC should be filming Kate trying to dance with a guy at a club because it smacks of desperation. People say they don't care what Kate does as long as the kids aren't involved. Well, frankly, I care because I don't want to see her orange botoxed mug on TV, on E! or anywhere else. I certainly do not seek these photos or click on the links, but she also certainly doesn't deserve to be heralded as some famous celebrity just because she pumped out some kids 6 years ago. It's over Kate. Your time in the sun is over. Famous for the sake of being famous is all we see now from these so-called reality "celebs". Then we have the late, great Elizabeth Taylor, who was so much more. An actor, a philanthropist, an amazing woman in her own right. When will Kate see that she will never stack up to the greats, even the ones her own time?

MoGal said...

Most men Kate's age have been married previously and have children of their own. For one to have a serious relationship with Kate they would have to consider what type of stepmother she would be to his kids. I would think, this would be a huge deal breaker for any man that truly cares about his kids. I know how I would feel if my exhusband told me he was dating Kate and my kids would be spending time with her.

On the other hand, if she does meet someone that feels comfortable or agrees with the way she is raising the kids, the situation will deteriorate for them. For another adult to validate Kate's treatment of them will only make matters worse.

The whole idea of a mother of 8 being on a dating show is distasteful, and I'm afraid TLC and Kate are just crass enough to involve the kids. It's another no win situation for the kids.

She is a Cow said...

Kate is a disgrace. She obviously will go with any idea TLC throws at her to keep her sorry self on TV. If they really are planning, and are already filming, a dating show for Kate, then I feel sorry for those kids. Can you imagine her trying to size up guys to meet her standards and then they actually have to go on a date with the "Um Um" princess. Riveting conversation at that table, I'm sure. UGH, the cackles alone would drive any prospective half wit out of his mind! I cannot think of anything more pathetic. Although maybe they can sell it as a comedy.

Poor Mady and Cara. They are at the age where they will suffer for Kate's poor judgement. I am willing to bet they are put in the position to defend Kate's ridiculous behavior. So Sad!

Don't Watch and maybe she will go away!!!!!!

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

NC .... you are right, when ET was still trying to pitch Kate, they had had interview SWTS, but it lasted one week because she made those faces. Then after asking a star one question about themselves, starting talking about herself. Never kept the interview on the Star. She did sound dumb, not a bright bulb.

That is due to her high amount of confidence. She really did/does think she has it all, the great package, money, home, land, thinner, blonder, but she has no real personality. She is no Mary Hart in training. She can't understand why she is not on TV getting the attention.

The story she spoke of:pregnancy, bedrest, divorce, broke, losing the kids, jon's behavior is all OVER.

Now what to do with Kate?

She almost had it made with Bill Geddie and The View but she lied and caused Whoopi to get so angry over that custody night and calling the police because Kate had a feeling that the babysitter was not a good babysitter and "something inside her told her to go there"....well all she did was call the police.

Since when has Jon not had his children's security and importance first? NEVER. And Whoopi called her on it, you can see it on You Tube, Kate lied and lied and tried to play the "poor me, Mommy worried about kiddies and Jon has a new babysitter that I didn't approve of"....well, Whoopi had it up over her head with that bullcrap.

Every damn show Kate co hosted on The View, she spoke of poor her. No money, Jon did this and Jon did that.

It was her misfortune, because B. Walters liked the ratings and Bill Geddie actually was intrigued by her, said Elizabeth on the show.

Kate blew it, the mail was endless the viewers did not want her to co host and guess what? She hasn't.

She may have people out in L.A. and N.Y. who thought she had potential but she proved she did not.

As Kate told Ellen, when Ellen asked why all those piles of magazines were about Kate and Jon,

Kate said, "I'm home cooking and raising 8 children, I have no idea why there are all those magazine articles" and Ellen just let her leave, no other discussion after the commercial. There was Kate in her sweater set, proper skirt and shoes, cut hair do, LYING AGAIN.

She blew it over and over and topped it off with DWTS and screwing Tony over. That man was never happy after that. He tried but he just wasn't happy as long as she was on the show.

Another thing, she actually thought she brought the ratings up on DWTS. She believed it was her and not a bad year for American Idol and that is why DWTS' ratings were up.

Well, yeah she misses the press, no
one cares if she has a date show. But Jon will care if she is away from her kids.

And who would be on Kate's dating show? Any actor wanna be will audition for that show, another bachelor/bachelorette where most of the people want to be actors in Hollywood like Jake Pavelka.

One other thing, please.

If Kate had wanted to meet a man, than why did Purseboy always block everyone from approaching her everywhere she went???????????????

She had opportunities and she blew it with him hanging around like she was President of the US and he was the Secret Service.

Someone answer that one???

Sunrise, Sunset said...

++++++++++++++++

Excellent point. However, do you think that she would want to spend time with someone else's children? She doesn't want to spend time with her own. If that's the case, how often do you think that your children's father would get to see his own children?

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

It has been previously reported that prior to meeting Jon, Kate was accustomed to using her sex appeal to lure men into her web. Like it or not, that is what she was good at. So she can now pour that charm back on and really give it a work out with TLC's new dating project. Plus she is going to work that new, hot body for all it's worth. She is doing what alot of aging divorcees do. Lose weight. Get boobs. Lots of botox. Fat sucked out of her cheeks. Wear clothes for a 20 year old. Fry hair with bleach. Roast body in tanning bed. Oh, I forgot about the kids and their needs. Doesn't matter. Mama has got to work it now. Mama is lonely.

Sunrise, Sunset said...

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

I don't believe that he did. Wasn't it reported that he was in the background when Kate was dancing up a storm at the rooftop bar? I would believe that, in the past if a good-looking hunk approached her and she wanted to meet him, Steve would not have kept him away. She's still the boss; he's the employee. If she saw someone to whom she was attracted, you better believe that Steve wouldn't have gotten in the way. Wasn't it reported that she was flirting with Jake at DWTS? Did Steve keep him away?

We have no idea who Kate has met since the divorce, or any opportunities she let slip away because none of us is following right behind them.

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

Yes, but Kate is 15 years older and eight children later. She's certainly had access to plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures to make the most of her appearance, and some men will find her figure "hot." I dare say that most men would find her acidic personality a HUGE turn off, not to mention that she brings a reality show and eight children to the mix.

I really can't see any reputable guy being interested in Kate. She's the pill of the century, ultra controlling, ultra vain, and she doesn't really like men.

As she aged, she has also lost some of the strength of will to keep that charm going for any length of time. She was able to charm Jon into marriage, and bend him to her will. Now, she has less patience and I could see her blowing her top on the second date with a guy and then he runs (wisely) for the hills. Any man who would be willing to put up with Kate would certainly only be in it for the money.

barbee said...

The whole thing with any kind of a dating show for her is 'what' kind of guy can afford to take her on with all her baggage? Or would want to? Any guy with his own kids would have seen how her own kids mean nothing to her and realize that his would be the poor relations in that coupling. And why would some guy with or without his own want to tackle 8 more(most with some sort of emotional, social, developmental problems?)

UNLESS, once she find some sucker, I mean guy, she is going to gift the kids to Jon now that they are no longer money makers and go on her merry (widow) way.

barbee said...

she may have the phoney facade to try to lure guys with but there really doesn't seem like there is all that much $$$$$$ to make it worth some guy being interested in her. PLUS, we all know she would not SHARE any of HER $$$$$$ with anyone she 'hooks up' with (and how appropriate that that phrase is, sort of teenageyish like she acts. She has never felt she should have to use any of 'HER $$$$$$' for living expenses, starting right from the git-go when they got the free help, the free-bies, inherited $$$$$$ from Jon's father, the $$$$$$ paid 'THE FAMILY' by tlc, so, the $$$$$$ ain't a realistic draw for a guy.

Amy too said...

Kate can't do sh**.....wow, you said it all.

Shame we all love her to death, huh?

She is so mean, she deserves all of this lonliness. 8 kids and she is lonely, wow what a real woman would love to have 1 or 2 of those kids and their lives would be better, but that is life, huh?

She is just like an old dog we had, had to have her litters and then leave them.

Sex, not sex appeal said...

It's being too generous to say Kate used her sex appeal to lure men. We've all seen the pictures of the homely huge-legged nursing student with the hapless fiancé. Besides not being genetically blessed, Kate always had that horrible, domineering personality and lacked intelligence and charm. So it's probably more appropriate to say Kate used sex, not sex appeal to lure men. By all accounts, that was about all she had to offer and she did so to get what she wanted from any of the guys unfortunate and desperate enough to have her. Apparently, sex was used to try to rope rich guys with nice cars, to make old boyfriends jealous, etc. And she was always true to form...grifting way back when. She lived in her former fiance's parents' home and never offered to pay rent or board. The ex said it bothered him that she never even made a gesture to try to pay part of her way. Her excuse was that she was in nursing school. Apparently she has never felt she should have to support herself, and later on, her kids. She will flip out when TLC pulls the plug for many reasons including the fact that she will finally have to pay for a lot of things she never has had to in the past. Karma

ChurchMouse said...

I don't care if Ms. Gosselin does a "Blind Date" type of show.

I just hope that the kids are left out of the whole filming process. Maybe now, at last, some privacy and some normalcy in their lives will be available for them.

I'm not a sheeple, but Kate was not homely. Not by a long shot. She was cute in school, a cheerleader. If you've seen her wedding photos, she's anything but homely. In fact, with her blond hair in an up-do, she's actually quite pretty. Take a look at photos 1 and 2:

I Heart Buffy said...

Seriously wondering here, but is there any truth to any rumor that Kate is INDEED getting any dating show? Why is this being talked about? It was filmed for her stupid show, right? Not for a dating show. Is TLC changing the format of K+8? Is this a proven fact? We know they did the "giving back" thing with the kids. Then they filmed Kate whooping it up with possible actors at her early birthday "bash". This does not sound like a dating show to me. It sounds like they are trying to say that Kate is a "single mom, trying to be hip, (in bad clothes) have fun, & still show that although she has 8 God damn kids (we know!!), she can still hook up with randumb guys". So, no dating show, right? Just filmed for her stupid show? Just wondering...(no snark intended, except for the Kate bits) :)

Male Perspective said...

Am I mistaken, or wasn't there a story once that said Kate was dating a local football coach? Any locals know what happened with that, or was it just an exaggerated story put out there by her people to keep up the interest?

Just to shed some light on this, from a guy's perspective: there is nothing attractive about her. Nothing. She could slip into Megan Fox's body and face, and I would still run for the hills. She has a gruesome personality and not an ounce of sweetness. I wouldn't even try to talk to her, and I think I speak on behalf of most males when I say this.

Jane in California said...

In answer to I Heart Buffy's question - "Is Kate really getting a dating show?":

I have no inside info, just my own viewpoint, so take this opinion for what it is - nothing more than my own :)

No, Kate isn't getting a dating show. We all recall Twist of Kate and how that faded away into nothing. I think the network filmed some stuff for an initial episode and it must have been pretty terrible. They then quietly shelved that project and probably among themselves began to acknowledge at last that Kate cannot carry her own show. She is too unstable, too unlikeable, too anti-social.

However, they still want to film those kids to milk every last second of "cuteness" and advertising money they can. Momzilla comes with the kids, since Jon won't agree to be filmed anymore. However, Kate won't do folksy shows, like camping in Alaska without a meltdown. What's a ruthless TLC to do?

I think they are backing away slowly from Kate, while Kate is grasping desperately for the limelight in response.

The fall from the public eye is not going to be pretty. I truly worry for those children when the day finally arrives that Kate is told "we're not renewing your contract."

I also predict that after TLC drops Kate, lesser cable networks might offer her a part on a different reality show. Kate will find offers slim and probably that she'd have to share the limelight with others. This won't sit well with her, and her antics will probably get her nothing but bad press.

I agree with you; Kate is pretty. But sadly, she's deluded herself into thinking she's so amazingly gorgeous and funny and wonderful that the world owes her a living because of it.

Some people make themselves more attractive because they have beautiful souls, others can't keep their inner ugliness from showing all over them.

Kate is a classic example of what my mother used to say, "Pretty is as pretty does."

How about considering that the 8 are no longer viable enough to draw the viewers. We know 2 of them are not social, or whatever is the reason they were asked to leave school. So, doesn't sound like they will want the camera' in their faces as they get older.

These kids are older, not babies who do the cutest things. The boys and the girls are almost 7, very aware of their body, their hair, their clothing.

The cuteness fades unless the kids want to be in front of the camera, as we all know.

TLC has a contract that is in existence and they are trying everything to turn that G Family into a money maker, but now, I think Mady has had it. She is no longer going to be pushed by her mother, she fights Kate constantly. She is Daddy's girl as several other children seem to favor their Dad, he was the one who made them laugh and lovingly took care of them.

TLC has gone thru just about every possible way to use Kate and she has flunked out. Why? Her personality..... and she cannot or will not change.

No paps are following her to the dentist, she is posting her own pics, anyone can take a pic and post it. Kate would love to be back in that area of PAP people following her, but it is only in her dreams. Like most of her life has been.

If you read the article about Kate dating, it is really sad what happened to Jon.

If Steve reads this site I want to say something. Go home to your wife and stop trying to play Daddy, cause you ain't Daddy.

Kate is a ONE PAP woman! The dentist trip pics are credited to Chris. Was it Collin and Alexis with her?

I agree with you; Kate is pretty. But sadly, she's deluded herself into thinking she's so amazingly gorgeous and funny and wonderful that the world owes her a living because of it.

Some people make themselves more attractive because they have beautiful souls, others can't keep their inner ugliness from showing all over them.

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

Absolutely. I was responding to a comment made that Kate was homely. The poster was talking about her physical appearance, and I pointed out that she certainly was not what anyone would call homely. Physically. Inward beauty is an entirely different story. Some have it; some don't. Kate belong to the latter.

Really gals, there is nothing pretty about Kate Gosselin. Yes, she once had nice thick hair, blue or brown eyes, but now? Without all the makeup, keeping herself tan to give color, well, she is no one to give a second look to. She really is very common looking, just like everyone else.Her hair is so overbleached, she may start losing her hair, as it looks very thin, that treatment they give you to straighten your hair is loaded with chemicals and it does take all of the body, curls and life out of your hair. Evidence: Katie

Nothing about her face stands out other that when I see her in clips when she started to lose weight after the birth of the tups and lightened her hair, she was kind of country looking,Fresh looking, until she opened her mouth, but now? Wow, what a dog, honestly.

I still can't get over those excessively small skinny jeans that did not fit her and the legs of the jeans were twisted, didn't you notice? Like after pulling them down, she can't get them up.

Skinny jeans are for skinny legs.

No nothing about Kate would attract a man, she can flirt for a few minutes, but then what? Nothing really sexual about her, no intelligence, just maybe money smarts.

May she rot in H e double L for what she did to her family, especially Jon. Why did he go and live above the garage. He should have then gone to the press and blown the whole fiasco open.

And why when she was getting her nursing certificate was she living at her boyfriend's house? Did her parents throw her out?

I can believe she never offered money for room and board, she expects everything.

No, she was not cute in high school. She was pretty hefty too, probably was on the bottom of the pyramid.

Okay. I'm confused. The recent pics of Kate and the kids at the dentist. INF daily is not kind to her in their article. They are making fun of her provocative attempts to snag a man while taking her kids to the dentist. She is wearing her one necklace. I thought when Jamie went home, Kate resumed wearing both of them again. I ask my self, why do I bother even making this notation. Well, only because someone pointed out to me that Kate and Jamie had some weird thing going on with the necklaces. What's the deal.

barbee said...

Judging her by the pics of her posted running WITHOUT makeup and hairdo, there is NOTHING pretty or even attractive about her. Almost any woman can look attractive when they have their makeup and hair done. The saddest thing is that even with the 'pretty painted on' she's still ugly inside (and it always seeps through to the outside). If you judge someone solely by their inner nature, she is not just unattractive, she is downright UGLY!

Jane in California said.."However, they still want to film those kids to milk every last second of "cuteness" and advertising money they can. Momzilla comes with the kids, since Jon won't agree to be filmed anymore. However, Kate won't do folksy shows, like camping in Alaska without a meltdown. What's a ruthless TLC to do?"
----------------------
Not sure why Jon caved to TLC's demands for further filming, but probably had to do with the original/existing contract, post divorce.

My question is when Feb 2012 arrives and there is no contract in place, will Jon refuse to give his consent for further filming? I believe he most likely will. So TLC will no longer be able to film without both parents' consent.

Thus, we have TLC efforts to see if there is any interest in Kate alone. Dating Kate, Twist of Kate, Charity Kate, whatever, so Kate can not blame them later, if they do not renew her contract.

Quite frankly, I think TLC is doing what they need to do to CYB once Kate's Kate Plus 8 contract is not renewed and TLC has established that no one wants to watch her solo in any other spin off shows- ie Twist of Kate. They are covering their bases so Kate can't whine later, as we all know she is very vindictive.

Maybe Jamie is still visiting.

The reference was about her being homely ten years ago, after high school, during nursing school. She wasn't heavily made up when she was a cheerleader, or at her wedding, and she was pretty. If you take a look at her just a few short years ago, especially in the photo with Jon (black and white outfits) that hung in her kitchen in the E-town house, she does have a pretty face...fresh, natural, there's nothing "homely" about her.
The photos of her jogging show something else -- what she has become AFTER all of the tanning, alleged botox, etc., wrinkled neck, sagging skin. She looks much older than her age, worn and haggard. Of course, I'm not sure I would want my photo taken while running. I don't think any of us would be at our best when sweating, huffing and puffing!

Shoka's Understudy said...

The UK paper had a big story about kate going to the dentist with the kids.

There was a boy tup and a girl tup in the pictures. They looked happy and they were running to the dentist office.

I believe they were happy because they were going to see someone in there that they care about and that person or persons treats them with love and kindness.

Maybe kate will sit out in the lobby and talk to PurseBoy on the pink iphone.

The story also said she took Aaden, Joel and Colin to the dentist, when there was clearly tup girls running out of the van.

Hope they didn't have to watch for traffic before they got to the dentist's door.

kate wouldn't of been able to grab them with those stilettos on.


Those shoes that kate had on were horrible. Her feet look like she only has 2 toes, the Big Fred Flintstone and the other one, shall we name Wilma?

Last time I checked, there were no "living" restrictions placed on students. If one is pursuing a degree or certificate, where he or she lives has nothing to do with his eligibility to pursue a degree!

"No, she was not cute in high school. She was pretty hefty too, probably was on the bottom of the pyramid."

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

Hmmmm...I remember her in high school. While she was not stunningly gorgeous, she was a cute gal, bubbly, and she was not fat.

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

Good point -- they could be testing the waters. Dating Kate, Charity Kate, sounds like the names of a Barbie doll! I'm surprised that they haven't come out with Gosselin action figures or dolls. Then would come the accessories - miniature crooked houses, scooters, tanning bed, Shoka and his crate, Ted Gibson's salon, dentist office...

Wouldn't you think, though, that they would have learned from the failed Twist of Kate, from the dead-in-the water cookbook, clothing line, etc., that she can't do this thing solo? How much more "testing" must they do to come to that conclusion? But, you're right. They may be getting their ducks in a row and trying everything so when and if the contract isn't renewed (or they have to pull the plug on the show), they at least have documentation to show that there wasn't any interest in just Kate alone. They appear to be protecting themselves.

The point being made about the jogging sans makeup pics being not so attractive is that ANYONE can look good when they have their hair and makeup done by a good professional. Her hair person of late is one of the not so ones.

The comment about who and why we thought were 'gorgeous' in h.s., in my opinion, we as teenagers tended to equate popularity with gorgeousness. As we grow up and mature, we realize true beauty comes from within and can completely overshadow a not so photogenic facade. I had a childhood friend whose grandmother, when described feature by feature, sounded not very attractive, but the minute you saw and heard her speak, she was recognized as truly a beautiful person. NOW, seriously, (or rather, honestly, or to be honest, or any one of her 9000 other catch phrases) can you even fathom making that comment on about HER?

Let us just hope that tlc is REALLY preparing us, themselves and HER for the end of Kate Plus 8 as we know it, as we don't know it and as we prefer NOT to know it!

I was almost hesitate to suggest it for fear that TLC or someone in production might run with that idea! The character dolls could also be made to speak (Chatty Cathy) when you pull the strings. Mady would say phrases like, "May I Please Have Some Water?" and on the next pull of the string, "Mommy, You're Mean."

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
It's very over-bleached, and she really needs some lowlights put in there. However, why would the stylist chemically straighten her hair when she has straight hair to begin with? She doesn't have naturally curly or frizzy hair, as evidenced by the photos of her salon visit before the Disney trip.
