Kate's Cart said...
Good news for the Gosselin 8 - they have this weekend off. Per Kate "A fun filled at home weekend with my kids-- just playing and cooking and playing somemore and lots of sleeping in and late bfasts!"

TRANSLATION: Isolation again. Play with each other, fight with each other, stay in the basement and don't come upstairs as the basement door is locked.

No friends for each to go play with. No friends invited over as they would talk to the pap people or call one of the mags about how the kids really live.

No Aunts/Uncles/relatives/family friends coming over for dinner. Nothing but "only trust each other" as everyone is our enemy except the camera crews.

Yes, I believe they live that way. Kate is paranoid; she never accepted any invitations during DWTS, remember? Only her and boobyguard.

Yes, I believe the kids love the travel and some of the filming because they get out of the house, see other people, communicate with the film crews.

We may call the kids entitled and they are materially, but I doubt that they enjoy living in that house with her and a housekeeper all the time, everyday.

Remember the kids go to school, they hear others talk about relatives, family friends, their lives, their pets.

Poor Collin he couldn't adjust to all of that, neither could Alexis. Very sad.

I believe as Paul Peterson has said "be gentle to those children as they grow and get older" as their lives are limited except for school.

They probably love the bus ride to and from school. They have friends.

Yet, never being allowed to interact after school? No neighborhood. No, they are surrounded by all of kate's land of acres and acres.

My niece and nephew work in LA. They are in the so called industry, behind the scenes and they say although Kate is not liked by a lot of viewers and talking heads, the people who direct shows and own shows just love Kate. They need her to be separated from the 8 though and that takes time. They still think her recycling of her life without the kids, which is slowly occurring this season is indicative of the "new" Kate.

I tried to write this and submit it yesterday but it wasn't printed. Some VIPs who have a lot of pull on ET are just waiting to slowly put Kate back on, after a ton of diction/communicating/interviewing techniques are worked on. Also, the PA accent is a big one that she can't seem to get control of. Seems she can't do 2 things at once.

Didn't we all think because she could push out 8 kids, she had a brain too? Wrongo! Not as bright as the bulb.

Tami said...

She is on a ROLL today with her begging. She asks everyone where they would like to see her and her kids go. Then she goes on and on and on about where she wants to go. Then she talks about where the kids are begging to be taken. She has raised some selfish, greedy kids! She claims to want to give back? Take some of that unnecessary trip money and give it to the less fortunate! Give it to octomom and let HER go on a trip with her kids! No one is funding her! Or how about just some unknown, less fortunate family? They have been to quite enough places and I don't see how it would kill those kids to spend the summer in PA and being able to see their dad regularly. Clearly this constant travel is just a way to get the kids legally away from Jon as much as possible. I'm sick of her begging!

Tami said...

I asked Kate how she can be sure she can sleep in when she has six 6 year olds. Mine gets up at the crack of dawn. You can't tell me ALL 8 kids are guaranteed to sleep late. If not, I guess they roam the big house ALONE while mommy sleeps. Nah, a nanny will take care of them..

no way! said...

Reading observer, yes those kids seem so isolated/imprisoned in that sad, generic house, which is no more than a glorified orphanage. They may have food, clothing, and nintendo, but they must live a very boring, sad life. When my kids were that age, we had a birthday party or two to attend most weekends, as most kids invite the entire class when so young. When we had no planned activities, I'd take them to the park, the mall, to a movie/restaurant, and yes, to Target (which everyone loved) just to keep busy and avoid boredom. The G8 don't seem to get to do those kinds of things..unless it's being kept secret somehow. Once in a while, they'll do age appropriate things with Jon, but not so much with Kate. I feel so sorry for them.

And it is disheartening and kinda unbelievable that anyone at ET really would want to feature Kate. Really? No one can stand her and she can't speak or carry on a normal
Conversation. Sure she can take lessons but why? There are plenty of prettier, smarter, younger, likeable people out there who can do the job better. I sure hope you're wrong.

"Yet, never being allowed to interact after school? No neighborhood. No, they are surrounded by all of kate's land of acres and acres."

********

These children do interact with other kids, and they do have friends, and they do play with their peers. To state that they are never allowed to interact with other children and that they live in total isolation simply is not true. There are sleep-overs, there are birthday parties, there are get-togethers with their classmates, there are school events and activities.

Are these "normal" kids? No. Not in the sense that we think of as normal. But neither are they locked in the basement, living separated from the world 24/7 and only allowed out for filming purposes. They are at school for 35 hours a week, where they do interact with their peers and adults. Thank goodness for that.

K8G is asking people to tell her where to go???? Seriously?

May I please ask how you know this?

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

Why on earth would ET be waiting to put her back on when tons of people wrote in telling them they couldn't stand her on the show? No one is that stupid. Yes, she is controversial but that is only because there are two camps out there. The good side (us) who sees her exploiting her kids and despise her for that, and the bad side who wish they were her and live vicariously through her. I hardly doubt I will ever change my mind about disliking that woman no matter what she does. Actually, I might reconsider if she came clean and answered the question honestly that Joy Behar asked her about why people didn't like her. Instead of saying she had no idea why, she could be honest and say it's because people think I am exploiting my kids. A little contrition might go a long way.

I don't see her becoming famous in her own right one day. It will take a long time to separate her from the kids. How long do people want to wait for this dim bulb to take center stage? She's getting long in the tooth. Sure, the media could follow her every move with the boyfriend, then the marriage, then whatever. But nothing good will come out of it. The motive is far too wrong. Wrong motives always end up badly.

They've lived in Wernersville for more than two years. Have we ever seen her locking a basement door there? In which episode was that?

no way! said...

I can't believe anyone would want to hire Kate. No one in Hollywood, no hospital or clinic, not even mcdonalds. Life is too short to have to deal with a pill like that 40 hours a week. That said, here's my problem with her pursuing a career in tv: she has 8 kids in PA!! Sure she can uproot them and move them to LA or NY, and try her luck. But they need their dad, probably more than most kids, as they have to live with her part time. Also, once you have kids, you need to put them first, and leaving them for weeks at a time or moving them so you can pursue a career that is unlikely to take hold is selfish. And this takes me all the way back to Kate insisting on IUI a second time, possibly to purposely have the tups. Irresponsible given how poor they were. Unthinkable that they must pay for her bad decisions to this day. Horrible that they must suffer as she tries to figure out how to support them/indulge herself. It's so backwards. She's flying by the seat of her pants and is heading for a crash landing

Maggie said...

Why did ET let Kate go after they announced that she would be their special correspondt on DWTS? And then, Kate was to be the correspondt for Skating with the Stars but she only covered one week? Any insight about that?

Unless you are nanny in the house or a relative, this is pure speculation! If there is suddenly a Gosselin insider on this blog--and not just people who live in the same area--this is something new.

Tami said...

*******
In that 35 hours at school there are no sleepovers, birthday parties or get togethers. Their long commute doesn't leave much time for those things and they do have to spend time with their dad on at least some of their weekends. No one here lives with them so no one can say if they are on sleepovers, etc.

Maybe that person is also a family insider. I can believe that more than I do the kids are attending slumber parties.

no way! said...

In case I wasn't making myself clear, my beef with Kate is that a responsible parent has the job first and then has the kids. Not everyone will be rich. No problem. Don't risk having more kids than you can afford. If you do wind up with extra kids somehow, live within your means. Public school, mortgage you can afford, etc. Dont whine and beg and expect others to support you. No one owes you, Kate, and you do not have 'IT' and will not make it in tv. You've only gotten this far because of your huge brood and your horrible personality. That does not sustain a career.

Minka's tail said...

I'm not all that worried about them having friends. They are still young, and they have plenty of kids their own age to play with, for sure. Cara and Mady, who are entering their pre-teen years, are who I'd worry more about. They are at the age where if they don't have a clique, they will be miserable. The tups have a few years yet.

I doubt the kids are locked in a dungeon, but I kind of doubt they're having play dates much either, (except maybe for the older girls). Probably they'll hang around the house while mom texts her Kiwi "lover" and makes a bunch of appointments for primping up her integumentary system.

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

One doesn't have to live with them, or be a nanny or a relative to say if they attend sleepovers, birthday parties, have play dates or are involved in school activities. One only has to be a member of the school community to know if they do.

Reading Observer said...

Yes they were told to stay in the basement. When Kate was taking dance lessons, then they had to stay upstairs and she was a nervous wreck, I remember her saying to Tony, "they aren't use to me being down here and them being upstairs, so I have to go up and check on them"....and when they moved in, they had that basement as a play room, which it is today. They do not play upstairs, no way. She would have a fit.

Those tups were raised in the basements of the homes they lived in, not on the first floor. Rarely unless K & J were there supervising them and then they got to go out in the garage, while Kate sat on her ass.

As for what goes on in Hollywood, what a production team plans today; it changes everyday until they get to putting it on the air.

Mary Hart loves Kate, so does some executive producer of the ET show. Mary Hart wanted her and not Nancy O'Dell for that show. Big inside Hollywood new folks. Apparently they were competitors at one time and do not get along....just what I was told by my niece and nephew.

I could tell you other things, but they think Kate would make a good field correspondent, which means just do a segment, something special like follow a celebrity and ask questions at a function. Idiot things. Not on TV for 3 or 4 min or less. They need people who will take orders and work for peanuts and that is Kate, anything to stay on TV.

You don't think she is running her ass off to meet a man, do you?

Yes, I remember shows where the tups were crying to get upstairs and they were banging on that basement stair's door. Then they went downstairs and beat each other up. That is what we dispise about Kate, she never played with them, organized them, taught them. She only was seen as the disciplinarian complaining about them and Jon. Those kids are scared to death of her, except the twins. Not so with them.

Not the Insider said...

What slumber parties, what interaction? They go to school. I doubt that any teachers do anything other than what they need to do with the kids, just because Kate would complain.

I believe they are isolated if not with their father on weekends.

Kate being gone all week? She did that with bodyguard, while Jon babysat the kids, remember? He complained she was always gone with her "career" book signings, interviews, just everywhere to motivational speak, remember? Jon was angry. She got her hair streaked and starting losing weight, she looked good.

Now she looks like a hooker.

ET? Well, why else would she be about wearing her bikinis all the time? The show now is about her not the kids.

Mom In Lancaster County said...

It's interesting that so much speculation is reported as fact, i.g., the kids are locked in the basement, the kids are isolated, the kids never see other kids, the kids have no after-school activities, Kate has round the clock security, Kate has an African-American bodyguard following her wherever she goes, etc., etc., and yet no posters come forward to say that this is all speculation.

But, when someone comments that these kids do interact with kids at school and do have friends, then it's speculation, has not been proven, and nobody but an insider could possibly know that.

The negative is accepted as fact, but the positive is tagged as speculation.

Hey Lancaster mom! said...

Mom in LC: fill us in please. No unnecessary details or security breaches, but since you are in the know, tell us what you feel comfortable sharing. Do you think the G8 are allowed to socialize with friends and classmates like normal kids? Does Kate really allow them to go to friends' homes on a regular basis? Do they go to most of the bday parties they're invited to? If so, who takes them? Jon, Kate, a nanny? Is Kate approachable to the other parents?Is she really involved in her kids' lives and it just hasn't been captured by the lone paparazzo? Does she really grocery shop and do the Mom thing when it isn't a photo op? Does she have multiple nannies? Is a nanny there
24/7? Do you think Kate is an involved mother and is getting a bad rap? Please tell us what you feel you can.

Just the facts, please said...

Regardless of whether or not someone lives in the neighborhood or community, unless they're present for every birthday party & get together & school activity and have personally witnessed the kids taking part in such, any info they offer on that subject is essentially a rumor.

Miranda said...

I thought Steve was locked in the basement.

Rita Lee said...

Since some of the kids, mainly the younger 6, cannot even be in an classroom setting without causing harm to their peers and teachers, I find it hard to believe they are included in sleepovers, parties, etc. I would think they would act the same way at these parties, etc., as they do anywhere else they come into contact with kids other than siblings. I think we have all seen and heard (expulsion)just how they do act which proves to me that they do not interact with others because THEY DO NOT KNOW HOW.

Jane in CA said...

As far as I'm concerned, the only things we know for sure are those we witnessed on the show, and those we've seen via photographs, etc. I've also read some firsthand accounts from people who sounded credible.

I tend to discount any accounts that sound very extreme, use terms like "you'll see I'm right in time," (anyone else remember that one poster who claimed Jon and Kate divorced purely as a publicity stunt and would then reconcile to huge ratings? Supposedly someone with inside info - but clearly just a person longing for attention).

The only time I recall the children having their classmates attend a function with them was their birthday party held at some park. It was very staged and it was also very sad, as the children were still missing Jon at home terribly. I also recall an episode where Kate got angry because Cara got a phone call from a friend.

I believe Kate is a very controlling person and she especially controls every aspect of the sextuplets' lives right now. (Example - putting them in high chairs at age 7!!) During school hours, there isn't much time for free interactions - that's school time and learning time. A 10 minute recess plus a 45 minute lunch break is social time, so hopefully they have some fun then.

I don't know if they go to sleepovers, but I have a feeling they aren't invited to a whole lot of outside activities. We do not see them being part of a soccer team, going to gymnastics, participating in 4-H, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts - anything! Not only that, such activities are NEVER mentioned on the show. Thus, I tend to believe that they don't participate in those things - because it's not important to Kate nor does it bring in money or further her "career."

To those with inside info - if you can't provide any concrete proof, then please don't feel frustrated if people choose to take your comments with a grain of salt. You may indeed know all sorts of info, but you have to accept that you are still just an nickname on a blog.

I personally can't find anything positive about Kate. Simply cannot. She's a wretch of a person and she certainly locked those babies in their rooms at naptime when they were little, so why would it be a stretch to believe she might continue to try to "lock" them into an area within the home to suit herself now? Maybe not with a deadbolt - but perhaps with strict instructions to the nanny that they are not to disturb Her Highness under penalty of severe severeness.

orphanage=crate for G8 said...

IF the G8 have friends, go to bday parties and sleepovers, and do after school activities, great. I hope they do. They deserve some fun, and despite Kate's claims, I don't consider filming, even in exotic locales, to be kid-friendly fun. The question begs: why is there little to no evidence that those kids have social lives outside of school and the bus? Wouldn't someone take a cellphone picture if the kids were spotted at Chuck E Cheese or playing soccer? Why is it when the tups went to that skating rink for a bday party it made news but no others? Why is Kate almost never photographed with any of the kids as she runs her inane errands? Even way back when she actually had paparazzi following her for 6 months or so after the divorce? (I think she'll never get over that-just Loooooved it when the paps actually cared). Nah, Kate is too busy taking care of Kate, getting her nails done, trolling the Internet reading about herself, stalking Chris and begging him to take her picture. And lastly, isolating those poor kids is of paramount importance to Kate, as she is an abuser and paranoid nutcase with lots of lies to hide.

tweetypie said...

I've heard people say they see all these negative tweets for Kate. How do you see them? I am not twitter literate and can only see what she writes and not anything else on her page. Is there a way to read the stuff she does not respond to?

Miranda said...

Here's Kate's latest -- and most illiterate -- tweet:

"GN lovers&haters alike.Don't think ur hate makes it 2me& if sum does it doesn'tpenetrate me1bit.Myenergy is focusedon my kids.U can'tget2me."

She doth protest too much -- the negative tweets are obviously starting to get to her.

Gonna buy a wig said...

Say what you will or won't about mothers who use Sasame St on TV as a babysitter, but I have known so many children who enter pre k with spelling ability, number ability and even writing ability. They sing the funniest songs, someone called the Count taught them and the love to learn. So Kuddos to those people who formed that show.

As for the tups being in high chairs, excuse me but we have regular chairs in classrooms, no high chairs, no they are all considered one size. Never have I had such a tiny child that they stood on their chair to see me in the front of the room. Kate is lying. I believe she is a liar.

Why weren't all the tups who were in pre K well aware of their numbers, letters and able to print their names? That is basic and Kate or Jon could have worked with the children on that plus school certainly worked on that. Gone are the days of only crayons and coloring.

By K, they should be have prepared to have the basics, symbols being a big thing. So, if a lazy parent doesn't work with a child after school, you cannot assume the teacher if fully responsible for your child from pre K to 12.

Been teaching for so long my white hair if hard to cover for longer than 3 weeks without a dye job. Kate has not helped those teachers help her children.

No one should send their children to school, put all of the responsibility on a teacher, then when the child comes home, even though pre K or K, think nothing is required of the child for at least 30 or 45 minutes. That is wrong if you want your child to learn to do homework, what a great start, so that by first grade, they are organized and not only like school, know they have homework.

Kate is failing miserably as a mother, oh yes she is.

Travel is knowledge. Travel is a fine art and the lessons of fine art are the culture, the music, the food, the language, the artists, the bldgs and history of such. Kate has no idea what travel and knowledge together represent. A first class tkt and f/c hotel is all she understand with meals delivered to her 3 x a day.Make up and hair being done, as needed, as she is "on location, on a set" is all she understands.

Now she twitters? How does a woman of culture (one who travels extensively for knowledge)end up with a Twitter and tweet all day?

Sorry but I don't buy her, her foolishness and her lying. Kate is a liar.

What exactly did the kid learn in NY, NC, Fl and all those States they visited, nothing other than Kate has bigger breasts during each show and she can run in heels with an ice cream cone.

Shame on her.

**********
Most of that stuff was shown on her "real-est reality show ever" for all to see. "School insiders" don't hold much weight because no one has any sort of reason to believe those kids have a life that is the opposite of what is shown everywhere; i.e. that mommy does not believe in others being able to get them? If it was one insider with one name it would be one thing, but when a whole bunch of names are used, it's harder to swallow.

I don't know if you read my post earlier so I will re-post it in case you missed it.

Did you mean that Mary Hart wanted Kate not Nancy O'Dell to replace her as the main HOST of ET? Also, why do you think Kate isn't presently doing little segments interviewing on ET? We all know that Kate is eager and willing to work for ET. Thanks for your comments and answering my questions.

*******
Plus, it's often seen as the norm to invite every sibling if you invite some. That would be the case if all are in the same grade for sure. I agree that people would think twice before inviting someone who has attacked teachers and acted out, sweet as those kids may be. It just would be inviting trouble at their child's party. I doubt too that Kate is going to go buy 6 gifts and bring her kids to someone's home. It's not in her nature. No phone calls allowed at home? That is some sick, over the top behavior, so believing is actually this normal, social mom is impossible.

Eating Disorders/inability to associate said...

Rita Lee......I agree.

I remember Collin at a BBQ at Beth and Bob's house. Collin, who was always described as a big eater by Kate and Jon, on the sofa after each show. They went on and on how that kid was going to eat them out of house and home.

At the BBQ, Bob offered Collin either a hot dog or a hamburger, Collin wanted 2 hamburgers on his plate, he wouldn't settle for 1, he wanted those 2 hamburgers and he almost got away with it except he cause some of the other buns to fall off the platter, then Kate got involved and admonishing Collin. That kid has his eyes on 2 hamburgers as he was hungry. If he could have stolen one and hid it, I got the feeling he would have.

Being at Beth & Bob's, the old dear friends, was like being let loose and FED.

I still do not believe Kate spends a fortune on food for those kids, no way. I'll bet she only spends $200 or less a week and that includes paper products, no way those kids see a big thick piece of meat or chicken, no way. If they get 2 oz of protein at dinner, that is her version of enough. Now, without getting into an argument with anyone. A growing boy who is hungry is a sad boy. You can give him 3 oz of carrots, 2 oz of cooked cabbage and 2 oz of chicken and what do you have? A very hungry 7 yr old boy.

There is a difference in the way we feed boys and girls. Any mother knows this. We have picky eaters, we have eaters who eat well but don't over eat and we have Kate who keeps them hungry, that affects a child's mental, emotion and physical well being. A snack of a bag of gummy bears to split between 6 kids is sad.

The twins, Kate said, get protein shakes in the a.m., well that just made me angry.

Is she also adding eating disorders to these children?

Give them to Jon, go to Hollywood, please! I do remember Jon never being able to eat a meal without her making his meal miserable.

Meal time is special, we enjoy, we may converse, we give ourselves nutrients and we digest feeling the world is fine. That is what a meal time should be about. Then 30 minutes later, fight about the dishes or just throw the paper plates away Kate. You sucker.

I can believe she is on twitter, that is where she belongs, all day, everyday. No career Kate?

Techymum said...

tweetiepie - when you are on twitter, go to the very top and do a search for @kateplusmy8 this gives all tweets sent with her name. That is where you will get a better picture of the tweets being sent out.

On another note, you should see the awful, terrible tweets I have gotten. Swearing, rude comments in regard to my weight, telling me I should go to church (along with a swear word).

After being on the receiving end of this, I would actually be more afraid of my "tweet friends" than enemies if I were KG.

so sick of her said...

Ok, I think Kate is not one for education. I also think Kate also held the twins back a year. Cause, when you are in 4th grade, you are between 9 and 10, not usually 10 to 11, that is 5th grade. The girls birthday is Oct 8th, if cut off for kindergarden is Dec 1st(around that date), they would have been 4 in September then turned 5 in Oct. Just like the tups, most kids their age are in 1st grade, not kindergarden. That means Maddy & Cara will be 15 when they start high school. Kate held them back a year. I guess Kate could not let go, and it shows, keep the tups in high chairs, dress them alike, from what I've seen of them they are very immature for their age, and I can't even imagine what the twins are going through at school, especially when they get just a little older and realize that they are the oldest kids in their class. Kate is one twisted woman. She IS the one who can't let go! JMO

A Kate tweet:

"GN lovers&haters alike.Don't think ur hate makes it 2me& if sum does it doesn'tpenetrate me1bit.Myenergy is focusedon my kids.U can'tget2me."
-----------------------------

Took me a minute to figure out that GN probably stands for "good night." The tweet is an interesting mix of sometimes proper punctuation (proper use of apostrophes and periods to end a sentence), tweet-speak ("ur" "sum", "2me") and yet correct spelling on longer words (penetrate, energy, focused).

Kate (if it really is her) is apparently tweeting all the darn time, yet then claims her energy is "focusedon my kids."

I don't tweet, and neither do most of my friends. Is it normal for a 36 year old woman (who supposedly takes care of 8 kids) to be tweeting day and night to strangers? Anyone know another 30-something mom who does stuff like this? I barely have time to grab 10 minutes here and there on the computer before I get called by my kid for something.

Re: Kate's 'you can't get to me' tweet.
Given the illegibility and bravado, anyone else think katie may be drunk texting tonight? Oh how proud those kids must be. The way things are going, twitter is going to wind up like her blog: filled with negative comments. It's too bad we can't get to her. It hasn't dawned on her that maybe she's doing something very wrong with all the criticism? Sheesh.

Go to this website and you can see all the posts. You do not need to join twitter either. Just go to website. And if you click on the bright blue circle at the top of site, it will update it quickly for you.

About kate saying that the negative tweets were not getting to her and someone posting that she might be protesting too much?

I tweeted to her: Ye, protesting a bit too much? I guess that orange leather skin is not as thick as we thought it was.

I have noticed more negative tweets in the last couple of days. Jane, of course she is not suppose to tweet like a madman. She is suppose to take care of her kids.

She tweets like a teenager. I can tweet all I want because I am incapacitated. She is not. She can get up and go and do what she wants.

I also sent her this: Wish that Radio Personality could of taken a pic of you and PurseBoy holding hands in the lobby of the hotel.



And she definitely needs to get off that twitter.

We saw Russell Crowe at the airport yesterday, picking up his wife and kids. No security, no-one approached, no-one took any photos. Everyone knew he was there because he was walking around, having a coffee, going to the bathroom, waiting with everyone else for the flight to arrive. An interesting contrast to Kate and her need for constant protection from a bodyguard.

I could tell you other things, but they think Kate would make a good field correspondent, which means just do a segment, something special like follow a celebrity and ask questions at a function.
**********************************
But she is not a good interviewer, she brings everything back to the subject of herself. She was awful on the DWTS segments...and that screechy laugh...oh my...she would most definitely need some training.

mama mia said...

These children are prisoners. Kate is the only person free to talk on camera to NBC, ABC, etc. The kids are not allowed to be interviewed. She keeps insisting loudly that they love filming and beg to film and travel but the proof is they are isolated and controlled and have no voice. Their mother tells them to film and they want to please her and avoid punishment so they go along. But look at their faces and body language. Cara always looks sad, she hangs back, she pulls away from Kate. The kids are filming with fun stuff thrown at them constantly and they still manage to plead against it - that boat episode most of the kids were crying and asking to be let off the boat. Jon keeps hinting that the kids have said they want out of their contract and want filming to stop. There is no way in hell 7 and 10 year olds willingly give up all their free time to work. They have school and they have filming and they have weekends with Jon. There are no friends in this picture.

Duckman said...

What's with these strings of run-together words in her tweets?

Is she trying to get William Shatner to notice her?

Reading Observer said...

Maggie.....

I don't know the answers, honestly, I find my niece & nephew think that I can be obsessive about KG too, lol. I just want to know about the industry and I also ask about others.

I only know that while TLC uses KG, she is seen as the Mom of 8. I believe what they told me is that once TLC no longer has a say over KG, then other folks (Et perhaps) will be able to work with her. Remember, as my niece & nephew said to me, she is under contract to TLC. No one will hire her for anything else. So she will probably be just fine with that being over as she "thinks" there are a lot of people who want her working for them. Her "career" is exploding right before her eyes or so she thinks, I guess.

Trying not to call my relatives and asking questions, as I don't want to have them know too much about sites and blogs about KG. They do know how someone whom The Situation thinks is great is a laugh, but he, the Situation from Jer Shore apparently gave an interview and said KG could put Madonna to shame with her body. That is funny huh?

I mean Madonna is 50 something now. So Kate is compared to Madonna, lol lol lol lol kind of funny. Wonder if Kate would enjoy being compared to a 50something woman, lol.

No more questions okay folks, my niece and nephew think KG is a waster of time. I asked why she is still on the air and they said "crazy industry"...so someone believes she can be recycled.

Reading Observer said...

One more thing. I seriously doubt that all tups are invited to a party by one of their classmates. Hard to believe that each get along with the same classmates. Plus I do think that Kate has pounded it into their heads that they "should avoid telling classmmates about their homelife" and the tups probably don't even know their own phone # to give to anyone. Can't even imagine how how any classmates' parent would call Kate, just send the invitation into school with her kid to give to a tup and then Kate's people/mgr must review it, check out the house, Steve probably checks out the people to make sure Pap people and anyone who attends the family has a camera.

Can you imagine that? No cameras at their own child's party if a tup is there?

Sad, really but they have each other, the tups, I guess. Stiled behavior like Kate.

Her and Twitter? An explosion of the Career, for sure. What a joke she is.

No publicity via the web sites and magazines, so she twitters for publicity? I don't understand it.

She can't possibly be doing this. Why wouldn't she visit some area and just bring her kids along and sign photos, like motivational speaking or something. I mean she was in Tn at the Food bank, there are other foodbanks, is she that lazy, she can't go to another one?

Who cares, let's remember that I also don't watch her shows and I don't miss it, but I want her and those kids off the air. I don't care if they give the show to her alone.

It is all about her anyway.

Kate is going to have a stroke from all the excitement this morning. People are telling her where she should go and she acts as if they are inviting her personally into their homes. Sad to see someone who has that much so desperate!Yay! More freebies, she is thinking.

________________________________

Key word Tami- desperate! We can only hope she's trying to squeeze as much out of her 15th minute as she possibly can, perhaps she knows her contract is not getting renewed?

TLC has always tightly controlled her image and PR, going to far as to hire someone to babysit a thirtysomething year old woman. The fact that they are letting her twitter away, exposing her mentality of an 8th grader (no offense to 8th graders) tells me they just don't care anymore.

wramblinwreck said...

It's interesting that so much speculation is reported as fact, i.g., the kids are locked in the basement, the kids are isolated, the kids never see other kids, the kids have no after-school activities, Kate has round the clock security, Kate has an African-American bodyguard following her wherever she goes, etc., etc., and yet no posters come forward to say that this is all speculation.

But, when someone comments that these kids do interact with kids at school and do have friends, then it's speculation, has not been proven, and nobody but an insider could possibly know that.

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

The fact that the kids have been relegated to the basement for play time since they could walk has been documented on their TV show, it's not speculation. Also documented on the show: Other than the early years, when the kids were shown going to Beth's or Kate's brother's house, Kate has seldom, if ever, talked about the kids not being there for filming because they were involved in other activities with their friends, whether school-related or just away for a play date, etc.

It's also documented that Colin and Alexis were expelled from kindergarten due to behavior issues. My DIL, who is a school psychologist, said that's a huge red flag for a young child's social development; ie, not enough peer interaction so they can learn boundaries, which is further evidence that these kids have not been provided with opportunities to develop age-appropriate peer interaction with other kids (from the neighborhood/family friends/counsins, etc.) before going to school.

Kate has said on the record, "the show is our life and our life is the show," and that it's the "realest reality show" there is.

fidosmommy said...

The "insider" poster wrote about a conversation in the basement between Kate and Tony D. Either this is a good work of fiction, or this person is actually present in the house and hears/sees things going on. Who is in this house on a regular basis - or at least was when Kate was practicing her dance?
Or, who carries these things home and another person listens and writes to the blogs? Hmmmmm. A little sleuthing might be in order. Too bad I have no starting point with this. I don't know who's where or why they're there.

Spring Has Sprung said...

This morning Kate tweeted:

@TrippenIn We are. Went to church then took little girls to friends house ovr an hr away! Other 5 got frapps& now were home finally! Whew!

I guess the kids aren't totally isolated.

kate claims she is cooking sloppy joes, baked sweet potatoes and baked brussel sprouts for lunch today. Says she has the kids. Thought Jon had them.

I sent this:
You mean the chef is making. I can't see you eating a sloppy joe. Far cry from NOBU and Lobster w/Wasabi Pepper Sauce 39.00

Why not make sweet potato fries? You can bake them, they are great.

I guess it would be hard to peel the sweet potato and tweet on your iPhone at the same time.

Put down the darn phone and cook for your kids!

"...she is not a good interviewer, she brings everything back to the subject of herself...she would most definitely need some training."

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

Training doesn't cure stupidity.

Sorry to be so blunt, but Ms. Gosselin is NOT industry-savvy.

She's had yes-men telling her how faboo she is, and she now believes it. She doesn't take kindly to criticism, nor does she learn from it, as seen on DWTS.

She's a director's nightmare. She'd be counter-productive to any segment that could be dreamed up. Remember, this is the woman who stated that she shouldn't be criticized for being late to things: (From "Kate's Take")

"Punctuality issues, in my opinion, are a sign of being an overachiever. I become distracted trying to perfect everything in my path, attempting to do that one last thing and ultimately lose focus and … leave late for my destination thus arriving late!

So, the next time someone comes running into the waiting room or the meeting room late … instead of assuming they are a slacker, just smile because they’ve probably accomplished more than you would think possible today!"

Oddly enough, I believe this blog entry was retro-edited to include the following sentence: "(Side note: I still strive to be punctual because it is most proper and respectful... And teach my children to do the same!)"

I could be mistaken, but I don't recall that sentence before...

However, my initial reaction still stands. Ms. Gosselin, if you have a meeting with folks in the Entertainment Industry, YOU ARE NEVER LATE. EVER. PERIOD.

Too many other people are involved for you to just show up late.

Grrr. Thoughtless Twitter-Twinkie.

Not a speculator said...

Well, this is all speculation unless Kate states that what we say is true, unless you go to TLC or YouTube.com and see the segments of the show or the terrible treatment those 8 kids took from KG, especially those tups. Either they were punished when they were like a year for not taking 4 hr naps in the afternoon and made to stay in cribs, that is on film.

When they were about 2 almost 3 they were in that basement in the other house playing, fighting, no one doing anything with them, if Jon wasn't home, then they were in that basement from the time their naps were over. She was was out there with keeping them in the basement and there was so much crying, trying the doorknob at the top of the stairs but the door was locked, that is on you tube.com.

Kate was brutal, always screaming or yelling or walking around with that spoon.

Never saw that woman with a book reading to them. Never saw that woman working with the alphabet or numbers or shapes. Never. Always trips and the preparation dressing them, k & j fighting over jackets, shoes, Kate was "way out in left field" she could not take the stress of raising those kids or TLC wanted her to be a "raving maniac" all the time.

Well, as far as speculation about 24/7 bodyguarding for her and the kids. I do believe that, as I have seen that. You don't really think you can get over her fence around her property, do you?

Now she is her supreme craziness on Twitter, well they will all come running to her road she jogs on, if she doesn't stop this. Looking for free trips again, whatever she is doing.

I have always felt she put her children at risk. I still think that Collin and Alexis have a fear of people.

Filming in front of the camera crew is nothing, maybe 8 or 10 people, but they were viewed by millions and those babies cannot understand the whole US knowing who they are. It has to be frightening. Their mother's behavior has to be frightening too, as we don't know, except thru this Twitter, what she is like at home, sounds like crazy.

If BM and her fans are about Kate and everything wonderful about Kate's behavior then I would not put anything past those people, especially if they know where she lives.

Haven't seen her in a while at the area she picks up mail, etc., and when she would be there, I would watch her, she has a bodyguard and he watches her, follows her.

But I am not going to prove anything to you with this blogging. I know people who have approached her get a card with an autographed photo of her and the kids, she pulls them out of her handbag. I know that photographer is an arranged guy and they do talk to each other. We ignore all of it as she is not friendly, doesn't smile, doesn't wave. She no longer parks in the fire lane but again, I haven't seen her.

Believe it or not as often as I have seen her, she looks past everyone. Very strange behavior.

I generally nod or smile, don't talk to anyone in particular, but I know that the clerks in some of the places say she is rude, cold, demanding.

Wouldn't it be nice to hear that she was nice to everyone and that people looked forward to seeing her or the kids?

The kids are her money and she keeps them away from people, she knows they are stared at and those kids do not understand it, not at all. Possibly the twins have seen DVDs of themselves, I don't know, but I doubt the tups do.

Also remember that Kate moved the twins from the neighborhood where they had next door friends/neighborhood kids they went to school with when the show started, now, no neighborhood kids.

So no, I don't think that our speculation is wrong. I think most of us hit the nail on the head where Kate is concerned, and don't forget Jon had a lot to say about Kate during the divorce period. He was on every interview show also like Larry King and GMA, go to you tube.com to see his entire hour about Kate and her goals.

Truth if Powerful said...

Believe that Kate should just do an interview where she does not lie, just tell the truth. Don't make up words, don't say the kids are all happy. Acknowledge you are going crazy with this situation you are in and now on Twitter acting manic.

Just be honest, be yourself (if you can find that person again and get some real deep therapy) maybe you can be happy then your children will be happy.

For so many people to want you off of TV is really saying something.

For people to set up Blogs to get you off of TV is unbelievable. I don't remember, in all my years, people so against a TV reality star or any star.

Katie, get your life together before you keep bulls_ _ ting everyone.

Amen....if you went to church today, your photo would be on the web. No way you went to church, cause I don't remember hearing any Churchs falling down in PA.

See, the lying is too much. Acknowledge your lonliness, call your brother, your family and get a life for yourself and your kids.

Get the hell off of TV as soon as you can. You sound absolutely miserable on Twitter.

Not necessarily. Not if what we hear from the wife of a pap, or the local folks - the paps aren't interested anymore. Maybe she didn't call Chris.

I don't understand the remark about the churches falling down.


"Just be honest, be yourself (if you can find that person again and get some real deep therapy) maybe you can be happy then your children will be happy."

This IS Kate. It isn't a matter of finding that person again. She is what she is. Kate once said that there is no turning back.

Protect8 said...

Radar Online posted a preview video of Kiwi Kate getting upset with the p-people in New Zealand. Funny thing - it was a p-person. One guy standing at the end of a road with a long lens.

And as usual, she completely demeaned the man giving them the tour, so shocked was she that he was not aware of the great threat of the p-person. Oh my - he did not know how important and famous she was!!!

The fact that Kate can not bother to actually learn a name of any of the individuals who host her 8 kids is one of the worst examples she is setting. "Follow Mr. Kiwi Bird Man ..." In other words, everyone is inferior to us, dear children.

Why are almost seven year olds dressed alike? It is cringe worthy. And then she gets upset that she is photographed - yuck!

It's like "Don't dare take a photograph of my kids and make money while I'm forcing (oh that's right - they love it) them to be filmed to make money!"

Tweet Tweet GN said...

How can they be involved in after school activities when they all get off the bus, except the two at home being counseled and home schooled?

Either time is set aside during the day for the kids to participate in some activity, like Mady with the violin.

It is not important that we know anything or everything about their personal lives; but Kate, don't lie to use about a Sunday at church, little tup girls going to friend's house, boys get fraps when you are never seen with friends.

BUT, for all you neersayers....Kate use to have interaction on the show with family, friends, she would go on trips with Beth, was close to Jodie and Jodie's family. What happened to all of those people?

Now, no one is shown, except the college student who traveled to Australia with Kate. Then there is the hired woman who went to NY with Kate, but I understand she lives in the Midwest or West.

No, we do not see Kate taking her 8 to a restaurant for dinner, even a fast food thing. The only time, NOW, we see those kids is getting off the bus and while filming.

Kate going back to a House of God on Palm Sunday would make the news, since she was vocal about pulling away, had no time for that type of activity. She and Jon fought on TV over that, on the DVDs and you tube.

Personally, since I live near her, I know she is not friendly, not ever with her children when running errands. I know the tanning bed place is sworn to secrecy and that she does indeed have 24/7 security. That does include the children, how I know? I am not going to say.

For her to reveal the children's wearabouts over Twitter or that she is driving the BBB is crazyness as she is probably at home.

Better yet, she is not twittering but someone else is. Perhaps she does a bit of it, but she would not break a nail.

Security does keep people from stopping and watching the goings and comings up and down the driveway though. I do know that.

Also she has told those children from the beginning of pre K, "you are special, you don't need anyone but each other, others are not to be trusted" why do I think that? Because that is how she acts.

As for taking her off ET and DWTS and SWTS, she was terrible, they gave her too much, assuming she knew what to do, NOT. She can be on those shows as a couple min interviewer if she learns to interview and get off the camera like a good interviewer does.

It is a very competitive world they, the G family live in and as Jon called it, a fish bowl.

Kate has got to feel bad about losing Jodie, Beth/Bob, her brother and some friends she had.

She has to. I do wish her well, but I think she needs to be off TV, let the kids adjust to life without TV, get off that massive piece of land and get real with her life and raising 8 children. She has to allow Jon in. It is a break in her stress level, but she is vindictive.

Nothing gained here but me saying how I feel, JMO, I guess, but I believe even Twitter is a lie.

Shoka's Understudy said...

She took the 3 tup girls to a freinds house over an hour away? She would of had to dropped them off. Did she go back and get them? Round trip that is 4 hours.

LIE! Also, she says she was cooking sloppy joes, brussel sprouts and sweet potatoes for lunch.

How could you go to church, drop girls off an hour away, cook lunch,stop andget frapps and go back.

I call BS! Your lies are getting more and more worse by the lie. Also I thought Jon had the kids. So he will have them next weekend for Easter. Hopefully, Jon and E will take the kids to church.

Jane in CA said...

Hilarious!! Kate tweets they went to church. Lying liars and the lies they tell - when will she learn?

And sure the kids do lots of after school activities -- just soooooo many Kate couldn't even make up one activity they do.

just go away already Kate - only a few rather lost teens and BabyMama believe you at this point.

Moon Over Miami said...

We may call the kids entitled and they are materially, but I doubt that they enjoy living in that house with her and a housekeeper all the time, everyday.


----------------------
They are not in that house with her and a housekeeper all the time, every day. They go to school. They are gone from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., five days a week. They are with Jon two weekends of the month.

"Remember the kids go to school, they hear others talk about relatives, family friends, their lives, their pets. Poor Collin he couldn't adjust to all of that, neither could Alexis. Very sad."

-----------------------
The kids reportedly had behavioral issues at school. We don't know what Collin and Alexis couldn't adjust to. I'm not sure that listening to others talk about their relatives, pets, etc., is what caused the children to be expelled.

"Some VIPs who have a lot of pull on ET are just waiting to slowly put Kate back on, after a ton of diction/communicating/interviewing techniques are worked on."

Source?

"Didn't we all think because she could push out 8 kids, she had a brain too? Wrongo! Not as bright as the bulb."

She didn't push out eight at one time...and I don't know about anyone else, but I never considered Kate smart because she had eight children!

Ms. Gosselin can screw up her life by parading her "real" life on television all she wants. It's the fact that she films the kids, who have no say in the matter, and has tossed their privacy down the garbage chute.

"Reality" television is a crock, any way you slice it. Grown adults aren't able to control their "image" because the network edits the footage to promote whatever will get the best ratings. Also, "Reality" television is notorious for being non-union, and the financial, safety, and legal protections put into place for adults and kids alike are not available for participants.

Still, a grown person can choose to toss away their privacy and sell their time to the highest bidder. A child cannot make that choice.

Ms. Gosselin chose money over her kids' welfare. That's why she is so disliked.

Yes, Lancaster Mom, people do a lot of speculating. It's not that we don't want to believe the positive, it's that we find it HARD TO BELIEVE after following Kate's antics for the past 3 - 4 years. It's just a lot easier to believe the negative after watching her closely.

Do you really think Kate would allow the children to interact, etc. without filming them even briefly (being dropped off or getting ready to go) and/or bragging about what they are doing and how many friends they have and how social they are. Right. Sure. That sounds like Kate. NOT! Sorry, but we just call it as we see it and have seen it since the very beginning.

I also believe that if this were happening others would report it. In the past I've read nothing but negative remarks in the Reading news about Kate's local scene. It's just not likely that this would not be reported no matter how kindly people want to treat the children.

And wouldn't a Pap just love to film Alexis and Collin on their way to play with other children.

Sorry, Miss Lancaster. I'm not convinced. Nor do I believe they are locked in the basement, but I do undestand where the speculation comes from.

fidosmommy said...

PA Confidential,

Maybe Kate drove BY the church. Doesn't that count? She was there!

Snark.

No, seriously, she may have decided not to go back to that one because she's "too famous", but it is possible she went to another one since it was Palm Sunday. It's possible, even if not likely.

txmom said...

I may be completely wrong, but I think TLC has called off the paps, and has told Kate to do her on PR work, namely through twitter.

If this newest pr push to keep her relevant doesn't work and the ratings continue to plummet, then we will see her standing in the unemployment line.

If her ratings were high, there is way in heck she would be corresponding with the common folks...oops, meant her 'fans'.

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

She didn't say that SHE was going to visit friends. She said that the little girls were going a friend's house.

***********
To me that is no different than when she pretended to have friends. The other night she claimed they went to dinner "with friends". I don't believe all this friends business or she would not claim just Jamie as a friend on all her shows. She'd name drop! : )
I think it's hysterical how she uses twitter to answer all the comments here. She points out the kids have sooo many activities. Then she points out she is dropping someone off at a friend's house. HOWEVER, she has to specify it is an hour away. Why? Because otherwise the parents of the kids at school who follow her on twitter would be saying, "Huh? The kids are now allowed to visit friends?" Why would any spell out how far away it is? I seem to remember her the other day pointing out they were out driving somewhere, but why would she not have used her going to visit friends line at that time to sound popular? Because she had not thought of it yet or had not read anything here yet that she needed to refute. Others can choose to believe everything she puts out there. I sure don't!

Proud Grandma said...

I feel sorry for that family. FAMILY is so important and those kids only have each other and their part time mother and, sadly, part time father. What will they do at Easter?
At Easter and other holidays, my kids bring the grandkids here to Gammy and grampas for celebration feasts, easter egg hunts etc.
Kate had alienated her family and therefore she has deprived her children of wonderful family get togethers and celebrations. Shame on you Kate.

Mom In Lancaster County said...

Do you really think Kate would allow the children to interact, etc. without filming them even briefly (being dropped off or getting ready to go) and/or bragging about what they are doing and how many friends they have and how social they are. Right.

&&&&&&&&&

No, I don't think that. I know it because I've seen it. What I do think is that nobody has ever taken into consideration that there may be some who comment (or read here) whose kids might be friends with these children, or who might have children in the same school, or who might be involved with the school in some way, or who might be involved in some of the activities that these kids are involved in. Just because this isn't reported here or elsewhere doesn't mean that it doesn't happen. Perhaps there are those who, unlike the kids' mother, respect their privacy and just don't report it.

Kate may be what she is, but the speculation that runs wild is just that - speculation because nobody is around this family every hour of every day, and certainly not during their school day, or after school, or in any events that take place during the day.


"And wouldn't a Pap just love to film Alexis and Collin on their way to play with other children."

&&&&&&&&

Not necessarily. I think the paps are done with them. Furthermore, they are not allowed on school property. They don't lie in wait, just hoping to get shots of the kids as they leave for the day.

"I also believe that if this were happening others would report it. In the past I've read nothing but negative remarks in the Reading news about Kate's local scene"

&&&&&&&&&&

The kids don't go to school in Reading, and therefore, there would be nothing written about what they do there, other than the Target trips and Kate's tanning and Fed Ex runs. If they are involved in community activities there, I have no idea. They may be, but I really doubt it.

Jane in California said...

Kate Plus 8 is a reality tv show. Most of us who comment here have no personal interaction or knowledge of this family, beyond what we see on tv, and what is reported via gossip sites, pap photos, PR stunts, etc.

It is not our responsibility to search high or low for positives about Kate -- nor should we be asked to presume or assume that Kate and/or the children are doing certain activities that aren't portrayed on the show.

As to what the children might do during after school hours, when not on tour for the show -- what have we seen?

I recall hearing once about Cara and Maddy playing on a soccer team. I believe this was before they moved to the McMansion. I haven't heard a thing about that since.

I remember all the kids going to take a gymnastics lesson. One lesson. Not a peep about that since.

I remember each of the sextuplets having one special day out our with mom&dad, or in the boys case, just dad.

I know they had friends from school attend a birthday party for the sextuplets.

These children have long bus rides both morning and afternoon to/from school. I doubt they are doing any after school activities on the school campus. A nanny or parent picks them up at the bus stop late afternoon, and appears to take them home. Then what? Homework, dinner, and bedtime is the most likely scenario. If Kate is still putting the youngest in high chairs, is it really a reach to believe she still puts them to bed at 7:00 p.m. like babies? No it's not.

Once again - if anyone has a specific story they wish to share about how their kids are in a Girl Scout troop with the younger girls, or how their child plays on a soccer team with Collin, or whatever -- then share it.

If you want to respect their privacy and not share such details, then perhaps it would be better to say nothing at all.

The only fun I see those children having is when they are with Jon and Ellen - and then I see them doing more run-of-the mill family activities and just being kids. That's it.

___________________________________

It's very hard to know what to believe. Kate has tweeted that she is always followed around by paps and talks about how annoying they are. If this was the case, wouldn't there be photos of her going to church, taking the kids to friends, her out with girlfriends....She's also said her security usually chases them away from the end of her driveway, but she has done it too. Which makes me believe she has 24 hour security at the house. Kate's compulsive lying is what leads people to speculate. Either she is not followed around by paps and her family does have a life outside the compound or she is followed around by them and they very rarely leave the house. Which is it Kate?

As for her twitter account, things have gotten out of hand today. It reminds me of her show-fake and annoying. Although it is funny to read her inconsistencies-she's often asked how often and far she jogs. It changes with every answer, she doesn't even care enough to keep her answers consistant.

I was on Kate's twitter page last night. I found it funny that she was watching Kate plus 8 last night..by herself, that is. She kept making comments about herself on how she acted in every scene. She had to tweet about it every few minutes. Seems like that pink phone never leaves her hands. Pathetic.

One thing that struck me from last night's episode is that Kate commented during the altercation at the Kiwi house about swearing in front of the kids, but didn't I hear you use the word cr$p while on the couch?

Why? And just let the comments roll about how the kids are confined to the basement, they see nobody but Kate round the clock, every day of the week, and that the children have no interaction with anyone other than the film crew and paid helpers?

I guess believing that, from those who have no idea what these children do on a daily basis, holds much more validity than comments from those whose children may be friends with them but chose not to reveal details, not only because of privacy, but because of security.

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

If you prefer not to identify yourself or your sources, that's fine, but given the number of anonymous "informed sources" who claimed to have firsthand knowledge about Kate, the kids, their lives, etc., over the years on various message boards, I'm sure you'll understand that your credibility is no better than any other poster's.


"Kate may be what she is, but the speculation that runs wild is just that - speculation because nobody is around this family every hour of every day, and certainly not during their school day, or after school, or in any events that take place during the day."
=======================

There is so much that has been caught on film, much of what is discussed is not speculation but what has actually been shown to the public. IMO it isn't necessary to have 24/7 knowledge of their lives to see that these children have been relentlessly exploited for most of their lives (esp. the tups), and their mother is a self-centered famewhore who's more interested in what her children can do for her than what she can do for them.

Trust us, K8G, hearing profanity is the LEAST of your kids' problems. You've made their entire life an obscenity by robbing them of their childhood privacy.

Well, it looks as if Kate will be at the Kentucky Derby, which is on Mothers Day weekend. Looking for that rich guy! It was announced April 18, 2011, in the Courier-Journal, Kate Gosselin will attend a parade and the pre-Derby party, with the Jonas Brothers, called: Burnstable Brown Bash. There goes the Kentucky Derby. I see someone on Twitter called Kate on going to church. That they were tehere and Kate wasn't, Kate got mad and called the church people blind, cause she was there. She is too much.

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

The problem is, comments from anonymous posters on a message board who claim they know the kids' real life situation can't be verified, so they're no more believable than any other anonymous poster. I understand why someone would choose to maintain their privacy, but if that's your choice, I don't think your veracity is any greater than other anonymous posters.

Kate wins an emmy said...

Portrait of Jennie,

If you watched the show when the tups were toddlers and up until they moved into this new Mansion, those tups were mandated to the basement and the door was locked until Kate decided to let them come upstairs. They would cry, bang on the door, but it did not good.

Now, since being residents of Kate's Land, I have no idea what she mandates them to when they are home from school in the evening because she hasn't started filming that YET. But, in desperate attempts to stay on the air, well, we will see what else she exposes to the viewing audience.

As for her behavior in front of the camera, it is obvious to a great many people that those children are afraid of her. Last night's episode had one of the boy tups participating in dancing on a stage with grown men because Kate told him to and he was very uncomfortable.

If I thought for one minute or even 30 seconds that the woman really loved her children then I would say so, but I see no evidence of that.

Just Kate's going on interview shows and discussing the fact that Alexis and Collin have a medication condition is outrageous.

She talks about the family having privacy while filming; but, she declines keeping the personal facts about these children's lives private from the world.

Is it okay for Kate to expose the children but not okay for Pap people to photograph her with the children? Or is it not okay when the show is being filmed for the world to see.

Which is it? Reality or Scripted TV?

By the way, does this woman understand that all the money in the world does not make her a millionaire if she made her money off the backs of those children sacrificing their childhoods.

Sad that those 8 children have to attend school and be told, by classmates, I saw you do this and that and your mom yelled at you and you cried....as happened with Cara on New Year's eve in Aussie.

You do not do that to a child. You do not embarrass a child for the world to see. Children are so aware of their peer group knowing how they cried or were yelled at or the fact their mother is insane or possibly crazy.

Privacy works only one way not both ways (if Mom said it is okay to film for the almighty dollar)....

This woman needs help and I don't mean your support but Psychological assistance because she never thought that having 8 children was going to make her love some of them and dislike others, which is obvious on that show.

With all due respect, I have no idea what she does to discipline the children now other than forcing them to film when they do not want to. I haven't seen filming in the house recently so I don't know if she still hits them, gives them time outs on the floor, put them on cold tile floors when they have a high temp with vomiting or if she starves them.

Perhaps the bodyguard still lives in the basement.

Kate wins an emmy said...

Also need to add something here. A lot of people related to Kate testified either in person or thru depositions about the children working long hours, lack of sleep, severe punishment when not agreeing to film, etc.

Certain you can get copies of everything if you write to Harrisburg, Pa. It is still an active committee.

She only cares about herself, so no I don't know if they are locked in the basement or if she even sees them all week long, but someday that book will be written by one of those kids with other siblings adding their chapters to it.

If those kids don't do what she says, then she uses her psychological warfare on them, like she did in Alaska, telling them they were no longer gosselins and now were pahlins and could stay there. Terrible behavior by a mother.

hannah said...

She says how she loves her kids on twitter. based on a clip of the show. Does she say it to them at all?


and she also called cara my big brave cara

and just said proud of mady.

Pony said...

I woke up this morning to the news that Kate is coming to the Kentucky Derby. She's been invited to be a guest at the Barnstable-Brown Derby Eve Gala party - a mere half mile from my house. She will be rubbing elbows with the likes of Tom Brady, Lindsey Vonn, Nick and Kevin Jonas, and her dear friend, Erin Andrews. She's also going to be visiting a number of Derby Festival events - including the Festival Parade. I wish I had a ticket - so I could see her meet up with Johnny Weir. ;)

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

Portrait of Jenny

I hope no one who has children in school with the G kids does not say anything about the children. Unlike their mother who will sell out those kids for a dollar or two, someone is looking out for those kids.

See, they don't seem to have any relatives/family friends, etc., unless they are with their Dad and Ellen. Then they seem to be having a good time.

Those children are afraid of people, can you see that in their faces on TV? I can. She has made them that way by keeping them on TV. They are older now, more aware of pap people, which would not be around if their father could have had his way and stopped all of this nonsense.

Now their mother is tweeting their where abouts, keeping them in the news.

Their mother is crazy, hope she finds another guy beside the bodyguard and gets her "inner self satisfied" so those kids won't have her on their backs.

Don't you remember her on the earlier shows? Screaming at the top of her lungs, running into a room where the kids slept, screaming, yelling.

She gets upset because some guys' camera equipment is being taken away? What about screaming and yelling at a year old or 2 yr old or 3 yr old and she has not stopped. She is a maniac.

Dustilies is correct - there are adults in their lives who do care about them. Nothing can make up for the absence of good parenting, but at least it's something.

Please Dear God in Heaven, do not let kate drag those kids to Kentucky for the Derby! kate go by yourself! As soon as the plane lands, walk into the airport and demand that Louisville's finest escort you to your 5 star hotel.

PurseBoy, head of security and purses, shopping bags and drycleaning, will be in close proximity to make it appear that you do not have a boyfriend, but be there in case you need a frappe, comb or toothbrush, quickly and professionally, as always.

I agree with Pony, I wish I could be there two to see a Johnny Weir and kate reunion.

big brave cara about the athletic kid who tries and excels at most sportyish things and Mady who is less athletic and doesn't try sportyacal things gets good for Mady. This woman has NO business calling herself a mother let alone being one. And now she's going to leave them over Mother's Day (which even if Jon is supposed to get the kids on all holidays this year, we all know he is kind enough and a good enough father that he would go along with them spending that day with her, unlike the fact that next year she'll no doubt keep them away from him on Father's Day because after all it will be HER holiday year). WHAT a MOTHER!

According to the newspaper, the children are staying home. That said, the Derby is on Saturday; she could get home by Sunday if she really wanted to. The events that she is listed as attending are all over by the wee hours of Saturday morning.

I see from one of Kate latest Twits that she does not do the laundry at home. What she do break her washer? Or was she hoping that a pap would take her pic? So now the big news with Kate is her fear of heights. Most of the comments and articles, were not kind to her.

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

I have not been interested in anything to do with Kate for the past while. Happily and contentedly, I've lost my mojo. She is one big bore. Snoozefest. Truth be told, I was only interested in seeing what stupid thing she was up to and got a kick out of people jumping all over it. During my infrequent spells of complete boredom, I would hop on here to get my fix. I don't watch the shows anymore, I just read the posts here. I know people like to post because they are just waiting for this useless hump to finally take the plunge. But more importantly, people want those kids off TV. The nuts on ROL have jumped ship and the slaggers are taking over with their comments whenever they get the chance. The tides are turning. Finally.

I digress. Her next PR move? Don't worry. Remember, she is not well liked by those in the industry. They see her as an exploiter of her children. While they may be friendly to her face, they don't live under a rock. They know about the hatred out there for her and why it exists. They don't respect her as they watch her try and worm her way in to the limelight. And give me a break when they say she was invited. That's complete crap. Her handlers sniff around for gigs. Plain and simple. She was tweeting earlier that she was working on her paperwork. What paperwork would she have except her homework for interviewing 101. I also have begun to detest TLC and the slop they are putting on TV. I rarely watch any of their shows anymore. GWOP has definitely changed my views about TLC and their corruption of individuals to make a buck. I thank you all for that and know I am not alone.

Autographs she can sell? Lots and lots of confidentiality agreements for people to sign? Checks from her kids' bank account to cover tanning,manis, etc? lol.

Shoka's Understudy said...

Pony said that it was mentioned in the paper that the kids will be home this weekend. Surely, they will be with Jon this weekend. I just can't understand her bitterness and hate towards Jon. She didn't want him anymore, she decided to dump him. He left and didn't bother her, except the picking up and dropping off the kids.

It takes a lot of hate and bitterness for kate to be so toxic like she is.

Also, I noticed in some of the AU/NZ pictures and parts of the show that the kids faces look drained, exhausted, bags under the boys eyes. I wish these talk shows had copies of the sworn testimony of the kids, talking about working long hours, little sleep.

These are little children not even 7 years old we are talking about.

Also, kate said something awful about the kids and the Irwin kids. She said that her kids were kids that are used to the cameras and Irwin's kids are used to the cameras, so I think she was insinuating that her kids should only socialize with other kids that are on camera. Something to that effect.

WOE?? What on Earth? She's Nuts!

one way ticket said...

Kate, Thou shalt not lie. Interesting comeback when someone busted you lying about going to church. Are we to believe that the other churchgoers are BLIND, and somehow didn't see a busty woman in a tight shirt and high heels walk into the church with her 8 children? Didn't you tell your kids that if they were bad they wouldn't go to Heaven? I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that you've been bad. And what a ballsy thing to lie about too. Well, little miss world traveler, I'd say you've just booked yourself a ticket to Hades (in economy class, and you get to pay). Wow, you're a piece. of. work.

barbee said...

There was a comment about grandparents day at the kids school and that there are fill in people for children who don't have grandparents. But see, there's the rub, the Gosselins have grandparents but they are not allowed to see the kids. It's 'amazing' how a 'loving' parent can deny kids the loving company of their grandparents. Oh wait, we're talking kate here, no loving in that parent.

Happy as Horse Manure said...

My prayers have been answered, far more than I could ever expect, the show this week TANKED, completely TANKED. She must be on the war path this am with those kids.

Poor Joel had to get on that stage in NZ(did you notice how Katie and kids were kept separate from the rest of the people who stood in line?) she allowed Joel, who did not want to participate. *she must rag on those kids to be more animated on TV while filming* to be dragged up to the stage."Do what your mother tells you to do, that look on her face "do it" and my heart went out to that little boy.

BUT her show tanked. I was hoping for at least 1.1 M, but of my, barely over 3/4 M...what a prayer come true. Honestly, it is now down to 1 or 2 minutes and counting.

Guess this has been a Wind Up Clock that stopped a couple of times and we forgot to rewind it,so the 15 minutes could wind down, that is why these 15 minutes Gosselins on TV took so long.

There is certainly a higher power watching over the children.

No more first class travel, no first class suites adjoining Steve, the bodyguard.

Wow, this is more than I could ever have expected.

And the best part, SHE did this all by herself, her terrible, ignorant attitude to her children and the public.

No way she goes to a laudromat. She probably meant she was going in to the Laundry Room, but doesn't know that name, so you calls that room what?????? The laudromat. lol lol lol

Happy, I am happy for those children.

Now they just have to duck as she will be slapping and hitting and bouncing off the walls.

Jon has to be whistling today.

See, you can fool some of the people all of the time.

BUT, you cannot fool all of the people all of the time.

Regarding the laundromat comment on Kate's Twitter response: someone asked Kate what her favorite things were about NZ, and she responded meals, grocery shopping, going to the laundromat.
No, please, she does not take her laundry to Main St. Wernersville to load quarters into a machine. She has several at home.
Sometimes you have to think critically before believing things that are so absurd.

Ok, been reading some comments from sheeple who think Kate can't do anything else except K8. Which we all know to be BS. There are plenty of single moms out there who work 1, 2, 3 jobs and do not make even close to $212,500(Kate's cut)try more like under $50,000 or less. Who some have 5-8 kids give or take, and manage. Kate will have to get rid of the house(smaller property), tanning(do it yourself), hair(go locally), nails(do it yourself), be a parent to your kids without nannies, do the chores around the house yourself(get the kids to help)you don't need to buy organic(regular stuff is just as good and a lot cheaper)And buying $300 shoes(you can get the same kind at Target, Walmart, Payless, Kmart etc, for about $25.00)Kate has been living way above her means, never thinking about a rainey day. Cause when it comes it floods. One needs flood insurance. Kate was/is only thinking of now, she has hardly thought about the future, she thinks it will be never ending, boy, did TLC hand her a bunch of BS. Just so they could make money. And the only ones getting caught in the middle is the kids.

I think I remember a comment by someone who was "in the know" about TV ratings say that if a show drops below a million viewers it gets cancelled. Who is buying commercial time?

Interesting. Four hours ago, Kate was tweeting a tweet once a minute. Now that the ratings have come out, she hasn't posted a thing.

It's been 3-4 hours since Kate last Tweet. Maybe she found out about the ratings, and will come on later crying and complaining, etc. I also noticed that the sheeple are very quiet about the ratings and there are no articles, on Kate's rating drop. Could TLC trying to do damage control? You know shutting Kate up by telling her to stop tweeting? Making no press release comment? I know TLC is all over about the Royal wedding. What's the matter? I thought Kate was their GOLDEN GIRL? I feel sorry and bad for the kids, especially the twins, cause we all know they are gonna take a lot of teasing by their peers. I don't care how much a school might/does try to protect them, kids are kids, when the gossip is good, it goes on no matter who tries to stop it. Kate is selfish(oh a real ish word!)she does not care that what she does, say, acts, cause this will get back to the kids, not her. She has no feeling for those kids.

so sick of her said...

Well, I spoke too soon, Celebrity-gossip just put up pics of Kate picking up the kids from friday. And of course, Kate is on the phone, her kids look as if they are waiting for mom to get them into the van and go home. Kate was making a scene. What's next target, etc? Kate's PR this is so boring and old! Kate is yesterdays news.

"This season Kate has been told to bring her A-game," a TV producer tells me. "If her ratings drop to the 1 million mark this will be her last season, and then Kate would have to get a real job."

An insider assures me the new 'Kate Plus 8' episodes pack the goods: "You are going to see Kate spend another night camping, but this time without Sarah Palin. You will see her explore Sydney, meet with aboriginals and even swim with sharks in an attempt to win back viewers."


So if the "packed with goods" episodes are bombing, how low will the dull, everyday episodes go or will TLC even bother finishing those?

As to Kate and the sheeple who claim she "has" to do the show in order to support the children -- no, she just needs to start living within more frugal means and get a normal job like everyone else who is supporting a family.

She chose to have these kids, so she needs to stop complaining about the cost of raising them. Second, while I would like every child to go to college who wants to -- that's a privilege, not a right. Kate can stop blathering about how she needs to save for 8 college educations. If her children are smart, they can apply for scholarships, they can use the money that is being set aside for them, and they can work part-time- all to make their way through college.

If Kate were smart (which she isn't), she would be getting out from under that mortgage any way she can. She'd sell off the expensive vehicles, keep the van and one small fuel efficient car for trips around town with just a few of the kids. She'd be updating her resume, updating her nursing license, and looking actively for a job with benefits.

But she won't do that. She'll refuse to see the writing on the wall. I don't think she could return to a more normal life - she will do what she did after the bungee jump - lay in the fetal position and sob uncontrollably, in between bouts of blaming everyone for her own downfall.

WHAT is the fixation on K8G camping??? It was a weird combination of boring and obnoxious the FIRST time she 'camped' (with Jon). Why not just let it go as one more thing "Can Do! Kate" CAN'T?

********

...and they can go to PA state colleges, some of which are academically excellent, as well as affordable, especially with the money she has banked. They don't have to go to private colleges that cost $40,000 a year.

The problem with Kate is that even before the sextuplets were born, she was marketing them out to reporters, videos sent out to the media. There was always an expectation that "someone" would come to their rescue, including Jon's father, who was apparently very generous to them/his grandchildren, as well as local church folks, local donors/volunteers, and from there things went downhill. There was never a plan of how these two would support their own kids. It was all about marketing them, and relying on other folks. Seriously, Jon could have worked during the day, and her nights or week-ends. But Kate took everyone's generosity to the hilt, and decided they were doing just fine, and continued her efforts to market her children, as a commondity. She rationalized this, as we all know.

Nothing was ever good enough, house not big enough, need XYZ and people responded, filling her every need with good intentions.

Endorsements started coming in, a chance to film with TLC, Church engagements (love offerings), $20 cash for a signed photo, and then Beth writing a book for her, which she and Jon claimed to write, with two third profits, and from there Kate's ego was fed, and she decided she would always rely on "others" including TLC to support her. Not one thought of how this would affect her kids, much like when she was trying to sell Mady and Cara to a talent agent.

She branded her kids, while marketing them as a "brand" and got more and more obnoxious with endorsements figuring she would never have to work again. As so many were buying her BS, and ignoring the fact that she and Jon had the means to support their own children.

From there, she became a beast, completely absorbed by money, freebies, and how she could market her "brand"- ie her kids, justifying things every step of the way, that this was the best for her kids. Meaning her.

Her greed became apparent when Jon dared to disagree with her, and no longer wanted to film. That should have been the end of it. But no, , he was cast out, and the filming clearly shows, she picked him apart and underminded him every step of the way to the point of shredding him. She made a choice for herself, not Jon, not her marriage, and certainly not the kids.

She became a self-absorbed beast, who put herself first every step of the way, considering no one (including her kids) every step of the way. She tried to justify herself by claiming she was "doing everything for her kids," when clearly she was doing it for her own ego and self-gratification. It was always a matter of mega bucks, attention, and fame for herself. NPD can justify almost anything.

I wish nothing but the best for the kids, who have no contact with family(completely not normal), limited contact with their father when the shrew decideds it benefits her. Why can't Jon stay with the kids in their own house, if this makes them happy. Oh yes, mine all mine...

Gimme Gimme said...

They (Khate and TLC) just never really got the appeal that was once Kate Plus 8. They refuse to acknowledge that it was the family dynamic (Lucy and Ricky) that lured people in and got them addicted. It was never about Khate. It was the kids and the family as a unit. Until -- Khate got a feel for big money that started with Beth's book MB, and snowballed from there until she got to the point she did not want to share it with Jon. Then heaven on earth - she found herself a microphone and the spotlight and she could talk to her heart's content while Jon was home with 8 kids alone and Khate was with Steve. She sang her praises to all that would listen and lo and behold there were many. That in my opinon was the end of it all - she loved the spotlight like no other ever has and money. She wanted it all to herself and just about that time Jon saw his family falling apart and wanted to quit filming. OMG, she kicked him to the curb in a NY minute. The show will never be what it was when Monday night was looked forward to the weekend marathons were not to be missed. Those days will never come back. They are gone forever. The kids were so innocent then and it was fun to watch the different personalities emerge and interact with the family dynamic - Khate the lazy mom and Jon the caregiver, the one who comforted the kids, came home from work and bathed them all and tucked them in while Khate hid out in the kitchen trying to look busy, counting grapes, blathering on about make a meal clean up a meal make a meal. Jon was the lightning bolt for Khate's wrath gladly taking it on to spare the kids. They knew he would do that -that he would take care of them. I miss the show and am still angry that it was taken from me -- reel me in and then get up in my face and tell me it was all a lie. Therein lies the problem.

Chris said...

Kate is claiming via twitter she can't afford gymnastics? Is it that expensive in PA. My kids do gymnastics and it runs between $50-75 a month. Does she understand people see her photographed in expensive shoes and clothes and know that one of her trips for hair extensions could have paid for the 8 kids to go for 1 year? I guess her tune will never change, ever since the were born and she said it was society's responbility to provide for them.

Happy to see the ratings are low. Sad to see the Quints by surprise is back. I was hoping TLC would not bring another family with young multiples back.

He is there to protect the public from her, in case she has a hissy fit or goes off on someone. Can you imagine the liability (not to mention bad publicity) if there were an altercation, physical or verbal, between her and either a fan or a non-fan?

Just My Few Canadian Cents said...

Upthread it was posted that Kate said on twitter that she couldn't afford gymnastics for her kids.
I wonder if this will spur her fans and twitter friends to start a fund for her to enrol the 8 in gymnastics classes! If that happens Kate may have found another way to keep the freebies coming should TLC cancel the show.

Khatehater said...

I am now barred from following Kate on twitter. I only did so so that I could tell her to get her poor kids off the air and try and restore some semblance of normalcy for them, whatever that may be.

so sick of her said...

Beware people, It seems BM and her cronnies are defending Kate on Tweeter by reporting anyone who is not being nice or being negative to Kate to Tweeter and having them banned, from all of tweeter. BM is researching these Tweeter people. Also Kate called all of us who are not fans of hers: we are the context of stupidity. Gee, do you think it might have something to do with the ratings tanking?

Shoka's Understudy said...

If kate the grifter said on Twitter that she can't afford for all of them to go to gymnastics, then she CANNOT afford to go to the Kentucky Derby!

Can you imagine what kind of hat with the big wide brim she is going to wear?

The reason why she went to TN to give back at the food bank is because it was on TLC's Dime.

kate is not going to spend money out of her pocket on a first class plane ticket and hotel for her and PurseBoy unless TLC is going and filming, possibly a date with kate deal or The K Derby invited her and they are footing the bill. She is going to a charity function, because they raised over 1 million dollars for diabetes. Wonder if kate is mistaking that for her appearance fee?

Jon twittered just a few tweets and graciously got off twitter by saying: Have to go and clean Have a busy day tomorrow, looking forward to week ending. He also said that Ellen bought a ham and he was really looking forward to this weekend.

I tweeted him and told him that I was happy that he was going to be with the kids and Ellen on Easter and that ham w/home cooking sounds wonderful! Have a Blessed time.

Hope the kids get all the Ham, mashed potatoes, and all the sides and rolls and iced tea they can stand. God bless them.

Miranda said...

Today one of Kate's sheeple started the rumor on twitter that the "haters" who tweet Kate are all on drugs -- specifically meth. That was her rationalization for why Kate's critics are tweeting her 24/7.

Also according to this sheeple, there are only a few critics tweeting Kate and each one has multiple identities; thus, between that and the meth, she concluded, the "haters" are making it look like there are a lot more of them than there really are.

I'm going to recommend this woman for membership in Mensa.

Miranda said...

Those of us who have been most vocal on Kate's Twitter have been blocked from following her. But no one I've talked with was following her anyway -- we didn't want to increase her numbers.

So far, we're still able to post on Kate's Twitter page. Kate may or may not be seeing what we write, but considering her increasingly bitter remarks about us, she's obviously hearing the news from someone.

And how could she not hear about it? Whenever a sheeple starts fawning over Kate -- day or night -- there's usually someone standing guard, ready and eager to speak up for the kids -- boldly and emphatically, loudly and long.

I don't think anyone expects our words will make a difference -- as for me, I'm just glad to finally have a direct means of defending the children -- but it is gratifying to be able to put even a tiny, insignificant snag in Kate's and TLC's selfish plans.

A Twitter account owner can block any individual from tweeting on their page, but that hasn't happened so far -- perhaps Kate and TLC are concerned about PR backlash.

In the meantime, Kate's minions are tearing their extensions out trying to make a case for having all Anti-Kates banned from Twitter. Which is ironic, considering that the sheeple themselves are a bunch of angry, hysterical, name-calling, threatening, potty-mouths (who can't spell), and
the pro-kids people are focused on spreading the "Save the Gosselin 8" message along with the facts and evidence supporting it.

I've read Twitter's rules pretty carefully and I don't think the anti-Kate tweeters have even come close to violating them; still, it will be interesting to see how much pull TLC and the sheeple have with Twitter.

CrateKate said...

Why does Kate always think she can just remove the truth? She did that on one of their shows. Any negative emails and we just hit delete she said. Now she insults people on Twitter who don't agree with her wicked ways and has BM get them removed from Twitter. How immature can one 36 yo be? My 16 yo has more sense than this woman does. She is closer to 40 now than 30 and it is long past time she grows up and faces the truth. Hitting delete won't remove it.

The sad part is that this could have all turned out so differently. Had she been a nice person, I think she would have had a Martha Stewart type career. They seemed to have been pushing her in that direction at one time, and frankly, I was very surprised by the amount of young moms who followed her child rearing advice, even though she had only been a mom for a few years and was doing many things very wrong. However, I do think she could have really cashed in on that whole mom/homekeeping/cooking thing had she been able to keep herself under control and be satisfied with that. But she couldn't as she wanted to be a star!!!! She was lucky as she was a no body and wasn't trained for the entertainment business, but yet had so much help from people in that industry and she let it go to her head and she blew it big time. She will now begin to reap what she has sowed and I doubt she is going to like it much.

Even without a TV show, her and Jon could have raised those kids just fine. I am sure her and Jon were making a 6 figure income between their two jobs when they both worked and that would have been more than enough to live on and raise their family on. They had a more than adequate house with room to add on. She was just too lazy to work full time and thought TV would be easy money.

TLC has lost the 3 viewers in our household forever due to this one show and all their lying and uncaring ways. I knew the entertainment industry was bad, but TLC showed me very clearly, just how bad it is. Thank you TLC for showing me the light. I now do not watch TV at all and I am saving a ton of money on cable bills.

While Jon does deserve part of the blame for this whole fiasco, I do give him credit for seeing the light and getting out of Dodge. Part of being a mature adult first realizing you made a mistake or bad choice and secondly admitting it and trying to correct it. Kate will never do either.

Now, if Jon can just get the kids out, they might have a chance at some normalcy eventually.

Minka's Tail said...

Gimme Gimme--great post. Good insight. I agree 100%

I think I posted this before, but I remember reading about how a reality show expert said that Kate "popped"--had potential to continue on television based, I guess, on her looks, distinctive way of speaking and whatever other factors they look for in a reality show star. (Probably the ability to throw fits and cause scenes?)

I think at some point TLC decided to make her the star and pushed Jon aside, as well as the by-now-aging babies. A normal woman would have gotten angry at TLC and stood by her husband. But someone with incredible narcissism like Kate--well, the rest is history.

Kate probably didn't want to really get divorced. She probably wanted --and may have expected to get--most of the airtime, with Jon just in a scene or two playing the fall guy for her comical rage. Eventually, she'd be spun off into her own show, and Jon would stay home, do the housework, and look the other way when she and Steve did whatever they do.

He ruined it all by being passive aggressive and drinking with other women.

Kate's image will always be tarnished because many people believe the divorce was her fault. She'll never have all the endorsements, etc. that she thought she'd get, and she hates him for that.

so sick of her said...

Kate is a danger to the public. That idiot, Twitters and drives her car at the same time. Glad I don't live in PA where she lives, looks like an accident waiting to happen. She had some list she made this morning which driving and the last one one the list mentioned accident. I see Kate and sheeple are avoiding the whole rating subject. Not a word on it. Kate has also been mentioning the people who sent her negative tweets. LOLOLOLOL

Tamara said...

Have they filmed an episode since the two tups were expelled? Will they talk about it on the air?

Laura said...

I rarely comment on here.

Glad to see the ratings are bombing. This show jumped the shark a long time ago.
I can't imagine Kate saying on Twitter that she can't afford gymnastics lessons. Is she kidding? Yes she gets many free perks but there's lots of things she spends $ on for herself. These kids are nothing but a meal ticket for her.

She wrote (ha!) several books that must have been very lucrative. She could have taken that money and more than paid for the house but I will be you anything she didn't.

Once the TLC meal ticket is gone, these poor kids will probably lose everything. Once they aren't worth lots of money I wonder if suddenly, Kate will hand custody over to Jon. I wouldn't be surprised.
This woman is a sicko and a disgusting mother. She makes me so angry.

Wake up Kate said...

Maybe someone should tweet her that her ratings sure are 'lowish.' Now how could she object to that. It's true and in her own language. I don't tweet or I would.

too bad, so sad said...

I've been drawn to the dark side.
I used to read here and was on board to try to help get children off reality shows because I am convinced that it does harm that will be a driving force in their teen and adult lives...

but now I have to admit that I read about her twitters because I find stupid just so incredible funny!!!
The sheeple are all applauding her motto of:
As for haters: If you don't like me remember it's mind over matter; I don't mind and you don't matter.

How incredibly snotty!

All those people do matter. -you twerp!
Your whole life,or so called career, is dependent on RATINGS! You have to be approved and liked by the masses, not your twelve, twelve year old fans & BM.
Your point is: You don't matter to me but I still hope you will help make my rating go up so I can continue to film my kids and make money??????
Too funny.

And as for going to church, I am not impressed. I can take a lawn chair and sit in my garage. It will not make me a car, and sitting in church is not going to make you a loving Christian. It's what you do the other days of the week. So far I don't see:
Compassion for others
Forgiveness
Thinking of others before yourself
Loving your neighbor
Selflessness
Humility
Generosity
or how about doing unto others-check Brad's opinion on that one!

BTW-great lunch menu, kids so love, love Brussels sprouts! Okay one or two kids could like them-all 8? Nope.

wramblinwreck said...

I'm not on Twitter but I've read that Twitter will verify celebrity accounts to assure the person is who they say they are. There was an incident where someone had registered @charliesheen and was posting as Sheen, but was shut down when Twitter was notified of the fake. Verification is shown with a blue check mark on the account. According to Twitter: “we continue to very selectively verify accounts most at risk for impersonation on a one-off and highly irregular basis.” I think it's highly possible a sheeple would impersonate Kate, so has anyone noticed if the account has a blue check mark?

I've also read that celebrities can make money with their tweets by mentioning certain products ("hey, I tried ___ and really love it. Check it out!") The more followers they have, the more attractive they are to companies who want to promote their products this way. Maybe Kate has been twittering so much because she hopes to build a big enough follower list to be able to make money tweeting. IF that's her Plan B, she would be better off clipping coupons, like the people on th TLC's latest freak show, Extreme Coupon.

Ohio Buckeye said...

Now that ye olde writing on the wall has never been clearer that interest about K8G has sorely waned, I'd just like to note one final take on the entire fairy tale TLC fed us.

While K8G is definitely the most obnoxious of the two IMO, I recall Jon's defense of the kids being filmed and this was after their split, so his credibility about being all about the kids isn't 100% to me either. His behavior post divorce was a sad and pathetic expression of his apparent immaturity. With a few more laps around the track of life, let's hope he's grown up and has his act together by now.

Bottom line to me is that in some ways the two of them deserved each other, though if forced to spend time with either of them (I'd rather not!), I could probably tolerate Jon (w/o his cigarettes) much easier than I could put up with K8G. I could handle about two minutes of that woman attempting to control and belittle me, as is her modus operandi at all times.

In short: I wish those poor 8 kids a more peaceful life in the future and I will ENJOY Kate Gosselin's future absence from any form of media. Let sleeping witches lie.

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

LOL - I had forgotten but I do believe Jon had some agreement with Subway or Quiznos to get paid a certain amount each time he promoted them via Tweet. At the time, I remember some pointing out that he only got paid a small amount compared to bigger celebrities. However, he's still getting more than his ex-wife for Tweeting and that makes me smile.

Jane in California said...

I'm wondering if TLC reps don't occasionally post under Kate's twitter account, or at least someone other than Kate. Here are two fairly recent tweets by "Kate":

@Belieberr06 You're sweet! In lieu of gifts please donate this year to: Wildlife conservation OR Feeding America

@CJWhodunit Omg I didn't even no.I new it was 11 sec (hrd mady say that!)but glad I didn't no other stats then!Longest 11 secs of my life!

The first one using full words, proper punctuation, and spells "lieu" correctly. The second one misspells "know" twice and "knew" and ends every sentence with an exclamation point.

It's strange to think I have an easier time believing the 2nd one was tweeted by Kate than the first.

I am thrilled to see the ratings tanking--she lost a third of her audience in a week! Dare I say it but I think that Kate's tweeting was what did her in. Anyone who didn't know her got to know her in a different way, and they got to see her unfiltered nastiness, particularly her rude comments directed to her "haters." And even more, she exposed more of her ignorance along with her audience of naive teenagers. Going onto Twitter was an act of desperation, and sadly Kate is desperate to show her desperation. Meanwhile, I desperate to see her go! Don't let the door hit you on the way out Kate!

p.s...I wonder if the kids are quietly celebrating this week's ratings together !

so sick of her said...

As, for that recent pic of Kate w/kids, picking them up from bus drop-off(this was from friday). Yes, all 6 were there, does not mean all 6 are back in school, Kate could have dressed the 2 who are home-school, in school uniforms for photo-opt. Which if you see the rest of the pics at the ice cream place, looks like a photo-opt. I don't see Kate telling the pap to get lost! do you? And that person who said there is a reflection on the car, you are right there is one. So where are the twins?

I see Kate's tweets have slowed down. She has not been on the past 6 hours. Maybe TLC told her to cool it, till they re-group. They had her do the jump as a drama thing, so people would tune in, it backed fired. Cause, all the wise people knew exactly what she would do, and Kate did it exactly, like clock work. I do have to laugh! lOLOLOLOLOL

Kate Twitter Update:

Early this morning -- Thursday -- Kate tweeted that she was driving the kids to the bus. She said Mady and Cara had a vocabulary test that day and she was helping them study. She posted a photo of their word list, which she'd taped to her steering wheel.

http://yfrog.com/h77kseyj

"Had 2 take a pic of what we did on way 2 bus.Normroutine but makes me laf.Works til I hav 2 make a turnlol!"

After Kate signed off, the photo and her tweet set off outraged accusations of 'distracted driving' & 'child endangerment', etc. that packed her Twitter page for hours.

It's now been more than 9 hours since Kate's morning tweet and people are staking out her page waiting to pounce.

She typically checks in briefly a few times during the day, and always at the end of the day, but so far no Katie. My guess is that she's been warned that people are angry and she's lying low.

Kia Ora said...

The women has no gumption was so ever. Just the way they want it to look. I still stand by what I said before. They are playing everyone for a fool. All those silly followers on twitter could be Stevo's sons friends etc. We know they are all thick as thieves. All for the American Greed.

I would think that the teenage friends of Steve's sons would have better things to do than sit at home tweeting a 36-year-old divorced mother of eight...like playing X-box or watching basketball games!

Tami said...

Typical lazy Kate. Why didn't she study with them (or have them study!) last night instead of in the morning? My kids always aced those tests anyway, but never studied in the morning before school. Guess that answers the question a sheeple asked about whether she does homework with them. This is also the second time she admitted to distracted driving. Last time she said she was driving while on twitter. Now driving and reading study words. Hey, how about handing the list to the girls and having them read it out loud instead!

Tami said...

I still wouldn't put it past her not to tweet while driving, though!
***********
On Sunday in a tweet she claimed she was out driving around in the car.

Tami said...

The sheeple are all applauding her motto of:
As for haters: If you don't like me remember it's mind over matter; I don't mind and you don't matter.

Did she seriously say that? She can't even get a cliche right. It's:Mind over matter-those who matter don't mind and those who mind don't matter. She's going to butcher everything she tries to say, isn't she?

This is in reply to my email praising Brad for not pushing the bitch off the edge. I said l hope Brad got a bonus for having to deal with Khate's abuse of him. I also told them how proud we all are of Brad.

"And how could she not hear about it? Whenever a sheeple starts fawning over Kate -- day or night -- there's usually someone standing guard, ready and eager to speak up for the kids -- boldly and emphatically, loudly and long."

Given that a large percentage of the people tweeting her are teenagers or kids, laughing at and bullying them isn't really an effective way of making your point. Attack Kate and TLC - they're adults and they've put themselves in the public's eye, so they deserve what they get. But I can't support the ridicule of regular Twitter users who want to tweet Kate, especially when a lot of them are young. (Yes, I know some are older, but they're not in the majority). Given that we're supposed to be looking out for the kids in this situation, ganging up on other kids to make our point isn't the best idea IMO. It just reinforces the notion that all we care about is taking down Kate, rather than advocating for the well being and happiness of the Gosselin 8.

Speculation again - but maybe her pink iphone was a TLC perk (company phone) and they shut her down for misuse of company property? I mean, if it's true what people are saying here, that she posted she twittered while driving......that's not good. Of course, her battery could just be dead. Or maybe the intern is on Easter break now.

Just looked at her twitter page a few minutes ago. No posts from her all day now (at 11 pm edt). If you search the keyword @kateplusmy8, the stuff people are writing is just hysterical. And BabyMomma is trying her best to defend Kate. It really was funny.

was 'moron' on the list? said...

Why the hell does Kate think that helping the kids study for ten minutes while driving is something worthy of praise and admiration? Sure, it may be something new for her, but this the type of thing real moms do! Only not at the last minute and in such a potentially dangerous fashion. Arrgh. So ever loving irritating that she somehow thinks in her pea brain that she deserves an award for doing normal things once in a blue moon. She's trying way too hard to prove that she is actually involved in her children's lives. Sorry, don't buy it.

UNBELIEVABLE that she texts and drives...I hope someone catches this and does a public write-up.

If you look at the other INF pics you will see that the reflection is actually a male waiting for the photo op to finish so he can get into his own car.

Reading news said...

Take a good look at today's pics on Inf daily. Why are two of the children wearing boots? one is wearing pink UGGS and the other has big brown boots which look like they might belong to one of her brothers. I have a feeling getting ready each morning in the Gosselin home is a fiasco. It is obvious to me that Mommy Dearest isn't as well organized as she would have us believe. I will always remember how shocking I found it that we saw shoes all over the place in the entryway of the "mansion". I guess the best shoes belong to whomever gets there first in the morning.

In my kids' schools a uniform also included suggested shoes.

Kate did not admit to texting while driving. She posted a picture of one of the twins vocabulary words (http://yfrog.com/h77kseyj) that she was quizzing them on while driving. Then one of her twits praised her for her studying tool, told her to be careful driving. She then posted that she had most of them memorized; just needed a quick glance at them while at a stop light.

Still distracted, still thinking that's ok, but NOT texting.

E said...

I will point out though, that had her phone in her hand and was taking a picture of her steering wheel.

Highly irresponsible and a horrific lesson to teach your kids.

I'm sure she realized at the last minute walking out the door that they had a test they were in no way prepared for. It's funny because when my kids had/have tests like that they already know the words for the most part. Why would anyone need to go over them driving to the bus?

Rainbow68 said...

Teresa: How nice! It's curious, though, that she pointed out how proud everyone of them were. Clearly, this was discussed right after it happened and they must have acknowledged to Brad what a great job he did in the face of such adversity. Wouldn't you have loved to be a fly on the wall in that room!

Could be that the Twitter did not serve its purpose. It did not get the ratings up. Plus, there is no STEVEO to protect her from making a fool out of herself with the public. Which she did . . .by Tweeting on the way to bus stop, while driving. TLC can't manage her on Twitter.

So hopefully, we are done and spared from getting a regular glimpse in to the abandoned warehouse that is K8's brain!

so sick of her said...

Reading news: Kate also tweeted that her bedroom is always in a half packed mess. Cause this is her office. With a house that big, she does not have an room to call an office? or a space in her bedroom to be an office space? Kate has flunk the organization class. She is full of beans. Kate has never been organized, that was a ratings thing. If Kate was truely organized, as she claims, she would not have had a organizer come to the house and organize, her kids rooms would have been spotless(remember roomgate)and her bedroom would have a proper office, or she would have a separate room for her office in that large house. According to her tweet, everything is all over her bed and room. That is not a perfectionist or a person who is organized. Kate lives in her own world.

barbee said...

she's got to help the kids study for a test at the last minute but just happens to have a list printed the right size to fit on the steering wheel and has the tape at hand to affix it to said wheel? And WHO says she's not organized or ANAL or just plain stupid?

get over yourself said...

I've been divorced for two years, have two teenage girls, awesome kids. Because my ex had been divorced before and shared 50% joint custody with his first ex, we always knew we'd do the same if the unthinkable happened and we split someday. One of the reasons I fell in love with him was the way he interacted with his older two kids. I knew I wanted a man that loving to be my kids' dad. My point: because of the amicable situation, the girls are free to come and go to both of our homes whenever (he has a pool, I have better food in the fridge and a DVR). And I'll tell you what, those two are very sure to equalize their time spent with each of us if something goes off schedule. They had a pool party at dads on my night? Well, first off, I'm invited to it and secondly, they make sure they spend the next night with me, on his night. If Kate let her kids speak their minds, I guarantee you they'd want to see Jon more, but even as nasty as she is, they'd want to see her just as often as they saw him. That is, if she gets a grip and stops poisoning their minds. She can try all they want but they'll never hate Jon.

I'm not on Twitter but I've read that Twitter will verify celebrity accounts to assure the person is who they say they are. There was an incident where someone had registered @charliesheen and was posting as Sheen, but was shut down when Twitter was notified of the fake. Verification is shown with a blue check mark on the account. According to Twitter: “we continue to very selectively verify accounts most at risk for impersonation on a one-off and highly irregular basis.” I think it's highly possible a sheeple would impersonate Kate, so has anyone noticed if the account has a blue check mark?
_________

The 'check mark' for verification, is now missing on her twitter page.

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

Thanks, txmom. Do you mean the blue check mark was there previously but is now gone? If so, it may explain why there have been no tweets lately. Hmmmmmm.

On Sunday, she DID though. It was not the studying incident. It was a totally different occasion. And she did say 'we are out driving right now' as she was tweeting. She also said she has no help on Sundays, so one can't assume the nanny was driving

I doubt anyone is bullying teens, however there are foul mouthed teens there who seem like they themselves are bullies. If someone disagrees with their opinion they are all over that person name calling. Teens who are not being supervised whatsoever by their parents as they tweet all day and night are a far cry from young, innocent kids who are being exploited. I'm glad my teens have sense (and are supervised) and don't sit around trying to befriend Kate Gosselin all day.

Did you notice the last word on the list was accident? Oh and even better, the second to the last word is coincidence.
Take a hint already!!

Twittering and a Twattering said...

http://yfrog.com/z/h77kseyj

She was not driving or tweeting when this photo was taken. Look at the speedometer. Zero.

"And she did say 'we are out driving right now' as she was tweeting. She also said she has no help on Sundays, so one can't assume the nanny was driving"

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

One can't assume that she wasn't, either. Maybe one time the nanny was driving! Kate didn't say that she was in the act of driving! My gosh -- she could have been out for a Sunday drive, stopped somewhere and tweeted from there, maybe at a restaurant or ice cream stop. "Out driving right now" could be interpreted in different ways. Someone other than a nanny could have been driving. Steve? Would she actually admit it if Steve were doing the driving and she was sitting there tweeting? Kate's dumb, but I somehow doubt that she's THAT dumb!

I am not a Kate defender in any way, shape or form, nor a member of that select group of crazy sheeple, but I think that this whole driving/spelling words/tweeting thing has taken on a life of its own and been blown way out of proportion because we don't really have any facts. It's all supposition.

so sick of her said...

Tami said: Why so many of the tweeters at Kate tweet site are teens cauee that is Kates mentality. She has never gotten out of her teen years, or gotten over them. I can just see the trouble coming, when the twins become teens and Kate acts like their friends. Hope Jon has custody then. And Kate has been avoiding the whole ratings thing, not one mention or word about it, same with her loyal sheeple. It's like it's a taboo subject if the rating go below 1 million or fall.

This is the other room with a deadbolt on the door.

This is ridiculous- -
Post season- Event after season ended; Preview- Showing before a showing aired; Postpone- Event after a season has ended.

These are crib notes for Kate and not the twins or kids. Why would any of the kids care about the above phrases. This is pure BS and Kate studying her own notes while driving the kids. She probably forgot to remove the "Notes" before she took it to the dealership, and is now coming up with excuses. She is insane.

barbee said...

Basically, ANYONE tweeting in sync with HER is either very young or on HER level and as such, NOT worth going after.
