The Issue Is:

The kids dont like staying with thier dad.

Later: I want them to spend more time with him. I wish he wanted that too.

Pulling them out of school, not getting the tups ready for k-5, holding them back a year


Later: Vocab lists.


She just does this and the sheeple think to look good, and some trust that.

The kids having different boots on that a.m.? Was the kids coming back from school.

That lazy witch would never be leaving them there in the a.m., no photos of her in the mornings.

----------------------
I'm sorry. I have no idea what is being said here. The kids can't wear boots in the morning?

Leave the kids where in the morning? At home? At the bus stop? At school?

According to the tweet-bird, the kids already had their Easter Egg Hunt and celebrated Easter with Kate. Early - "because she won't have them on Easter". Oh, and great news - WE get to see it!

Meaning it was filmed. Another realest holiday. Those poor kids, when do they ever get a day off?

And never mind that this is yet another case of a controlling personality. It isn't enough that they have Easter with their Dad - SHE has to have one too.

She took all the fun out out of the holiday for Jon by already having and filming "Easter" for them. Then when they come back from Jon's she is claiming they get HER baskets, egg hunt, etc. What a greedy witch. She celebrated already for cameras, why a 3rd time? Oh, because that was all fake! She should have waited until Jon was done and then had a quiet celebration with them at night. It's not like she hasn't monopolized all the other holidays so far. She's saying she gets them for Christmas. So I guess Jon had them last Christmas, or she just gets it every year? Whatever they do, I'm sure filming time will come first.

THE SOUP with Joel McHale featured Kate BOSSelin's meltdown with Brad and the Skywalk. He apologized to New Zealand for her behavior!

So happy to see another show featuring Kate's nasty and controlling side -- not coddling her and making her look like the victim she thinks she is!!

... when the tups were in preschool there was NO interaction with the classmates at all. NO PLAY DATES EVER! The only time the kids got to play with them outside of school was when they were filmed for the birthday episode. That was the first and last time the kids were allowed to play with their preschool classmates.

I know this because my child was in their preschool class.

Kate kept them home on class picture day. she did not want them photographed with the other kids. She kept them out of the little christmas program(singing in the classroom ) because we might video tape or photograph them.

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

I liked your post.

I was wondering if the classmates and their parents who attended the filmed birthday party were paid given that they were acting as extras in this episode, and were detrimental to the scene.

Also, when hearing about her herculean actions to ensure the preschool and its parents couldn't post or sell pics or videos of the kids is very, very sad. Paedophiles aside, that alone screams out why it's beyond stupid to put your children on a reality show.

But her reaction, although sad, also made me laugh. She doesn't want her preschooler tups' classmates' families to post pictures or videos of her kids, but courtesy of TLC, her very bad judgment and greed, and her paid pap Chris, the kids ARE ALL OVER THE NET AND MAGAZINES anyways. And if the Christmas pageant video was to leak out, wouldn't that be good advertizing and PR for the show?

This just confirms that Kate doesn't have a protective parental bone in her body but is rather more motivated by greed and fame. It confirms that she doesn't want anyone to make money off her kids which is why she was active in getting Jodi off the show (and it was this action which clued me in to how horrible she really was.) The irony of course is that many people have made money off her kids, and she and Jon likely weren't the people cashing in the most.

Kate, you fool, your actions when the kids were in preschool were laughable. (And can be an example of how her fame had gone to her head and she began to believe she was more important that she really was. Her face may be well known, but at the end of the day Kate you are a child-exploiting reality star....not a successful or competent researcher, medical professional, teacher, lawyer, writer, civil servant, artist, etc. Your contribution to society is/was to make rich people who own media richer. And without you, we would all get by just fine - remember that the next time you parade yourself out in public surrounded by media and security or deny your children opportunities to participate in events with other children ...)But I digress...

We generally don't see the school photos and class videos of other famous kids - so, it's safe to assume the classmates don't sell them out, or the media doesn't. And even if the classmates' parents do sell you out... well then you can't go around saying that the show isn't harmful to your kids and then prevent them from participating in normal, important school functions!

Just went and saw kate in AU and saw the preview of the sky jump.

kate is officially an arse, and I just saw a small snipet of it. Telling Brad that he annoyed her. She was just ticked off that she couldn't handle jumping and wanted to for the money.

Then to see her in a ball on the ground crying and her children surrounding her like the 8 pearled ring and in shock and sorrow was really horrible.

I freeze framed the video and Cara is looking up at the top and a tup boy and they were so frightened. She has really really damaged these kids. I saw Cara jump and didn't see Mady, but boy kate is going to steal their thunder come heck or high water.

To keep them out a whole school day to avoid school pictures, not allow their pictures made with the class that graduated. Is this her doing or did TLC make her because of the brand. If it is on kate, she's insane, if TLC did they are even worse, that means she sold their souls to the boogie man.

kate said in AU about the fish? that she hopes her GRANDPARENTS are really proud of her. She is haullucinating. Why have you cut out the grandparents and great grandparents and aunts uncles and cousins out of their lives? If you don't want to be around them, fine. Let them interact with them.

When those kids get older and start looking at their elementary school pictures and thinking about their grandparents and A. Jody and cousins, they are going to be asking alot of questions.

Like Rickey always says: Luuuuccy, you got some splaining to do!

Duck said...

I doubt it matters which holiday Kate has the kids for-the dates of the holidays are moved for filming anyway! someone asked when do they get a day off? According to someone on the just closed free discussion it was during class pictures, class pagents, etc when she kept them home. Its all about creating memories! Guess, good or bad was not specified, huh?

Everything written on those Tweets is something that whomever is writing them, thinks it presents Kart as the "Mom of the Century". That ship has sailed without you on it Kart. Yes, there was a time you had everybody in America fooled and you could have cashed in, but too late for that. btw, I never knew that they made "organic" Easter candy. I hope that the kids have a wonderful stress-free Easter with Dad and his family. Easter is not about chocolate bunnies now, is it?

I really think that none of this information should be put out there. The kids' daily lives at school should remain private. They have enough of their lives exposed for public scrutiny without revealing what they are or are not allowed to do while in school. Kate doesn't respect their privacy, but I would hope that those involved with the school certainly would know better and keep it to themselves.

The school sent out memos to parents and faculty suggesting that the kids' privacy shouldn't be compromised. Kudos for that. However, other blogs and twitters have now picked this up and it's being circulated on the internet. Why some things, such as the children's school happenings, can't remain private is beyond me. Yes, Kate freely gives out information, but that doesn't mean that those associated with the school should do the same.

*******

I remember her saying all this, but I don't remember the context of the second part.

In retrospect it sounds to me like she had asked Jon to take the kids once, maybe at the last minute, but he already had plans, so didn't. Ergo, Kate announced that he does not want to spend time with them. You know how she loves to exaggerate and dramatize everything she can.

Even the best dad cannot be expected to drive home from Pittsburgh (or wherever) to pick up the kids from school when it's Mom's "custody" and she's the nail salon. I'm guessing that's the sort of thing that happened and ticked Kate off to the point that she would diss him publicly. I guess I'm thinking of the Disney
packing/Kate at the hair salon episode when she got so frustrated
because Jon wouldn't do her bidding.

so sick of her said...

Ok, the New Zealand paper is saying that Kate called the trip there a nightmare. Cause we all know why:
1. There were only one or 2 paps taking pics of the kids not only her, and the paps were not putting up with any of her BS. 2. Purseboys parents did not welcome her with open arms, as Kate thought they would. 3. She made a whiney, cryin, all about her fool out of herself at that jump. Also, she called the Zoologist Mr Kiwi man and that spiel he was doing(the tour and lecture)(what an insult)and called him rude. As for her tweeters: she is hinting around that the View needs to have her on again, this is the second time she has hinted. Kate sure knows how to hang herself and make an A-whole out of herself..

so sick of her said...

As, for her not letting her kids take class pics and join in in school stuff, what a selfish, mean thing to do, to ones kids. Those poor kids, it's their time in school Kate, you had your turn. Nothing like screwing up their, screwed up lives more. When those kids look back one day and wonder why, were we not allowed to be in school pics, I don't think I would want to be Kate. School pics are a right of passage, not some publicity stunt, or photo op. Kate sure knows how to KILL the JOY and Happyness in her kids. She really is a mean bitch!

Minka's Tail said...

In defense of the preschool parent: she was discussing what the kids did at their previous school, in response to someone who said, with confidence, that the kids had a lot of friends and sleep overs. No current information was given out. Perhaps this was something that Kate did at the height of their "fame" during the divorce drama for a little while, but now it's calmed down. I hope so.

I am starting to think that Kate's obsession with the paps isn't so much that they push, curse, blind with flashes, etc. but that she doesn't want anyone but her to make money from the kids. That is the only explanation of why--if this story is true, and I believe it is--that she wouldn't allow her kids to be photographed in a group photo. Suppose some parent sold it for a few bucks? Who cares? It's a group photo of preschool. It's not like the tups are sneaking around a hotel with their body guards.

Only she can profit from the kids pics.

Denise said...

If my TV guide is right, The Soup will rerun at 10 central time.

CakeIsGreat said...

Even if an Easter episode has been filmed, that doesn't mean it will air at this point. Under 1million viewers is awful, plain and simple. The 15 minutes is almost up. Gosselins are "so last year."

In 2weeks TLC will air "Quints by Surprise", another multiple family to exploit that costs less money.

I was reading OK! Mag today, not one thing involving the Gosselins. Unfortunately though, the cover story was about some MTV Teen Mom with twins getting a divorce. There was another story about a new Teen Mom about to be on MYV with triplets.(I was too disgusted to read the article so no idea if it was natural or if teenagers are hitting the fertility drugs these days.) I'm shocked TLC hasn't thrown money at that girl yet! But there you have it. Teen Moms With Multiples, the new trend of 2011. I can't even imagine where the glorification of having children you can afford/aren't prepared for will go from here.

However, Gosselins are old news. All shows eventually decline and something new comes along to replace it. It's how the industry works. She doesn't have a talent, and neither do the kids to sustain any type of career. Also, the last time they were in the tabloids really was regarding two of the kids being expelled. Then these Australia episodes aired. I wondered if that helped the ratings continued decline? Two kids get kicked out of school then a few weeks later they are there "mother" get an expensive vacation, with the added bonus of the other 6 missing school since filming and vacation are clear more important. Who really wants to watch that? Not the average hard working parents who teach their children school is important and want to reward good behavior!

I thought there was a story this year where Joel or Collin hid their faces when getting school pics. Does this mean they DID try to photograph them for kindergarten, or was that an incorrect story?

I agree that this is not any different than when someone always says that the kids have these activities, the kids have friends, the kids have sleepovers. Even though I don't believe the above, it's still someone attempting to give out information. Can't really complain when someone else does the same. If one wants certain things kept quiet, ALL should be kept quiet.

&&&&&

I disagree. It is much different. Kate is the one who said that the kids have after-school events, lots of them, too numerous, or something like that. It was in a tweet. Someone else said something in response to her tweet, that yes, they do go to birthday parties. Jon and Ellen took them to a birthday party not too long ago. Kate had said that she was taking kids to a friend's house on a Sunday.

This is NOT the same as saying the kids weren't allowed to have their photos taken AT SCHOOL, or they weren't allowed to sing Christmas songs AT SCHOOL or they weren't allowed on the stage for graduation AT SCHOOL. Sleepovers, being with friends are not things that happened at school, and I don't see how this is remotely the same because it isn't.

wife of a pap people said...

Happy and Healthy Easter Season and whichever Season you celebrate.

This morning as all of my grown children prepare to visit for a while, as Grandmom has put some Easter Baskets together filled with socks, footies,little gift cards, no candy here. Learned my lesson with my own children.Parents can provide the chocolate, no dental bills for me.

Haven't written in quite a while as I was wondering if I was helping anyone. After Church this a.m. with hubby, after he had a long night in NY, at a club for a bunch of those great celebrities which allow us to have raised our children and spoil our grandbabies. I was thinking you are all wondering what happened to me.

The Paps get no calls, none, no agencies have been implored to take any photos of Kate.

Now, she is almost poison. No one wants to hear from her publicist and no one does take any calls, no one mentions Kate Gosselin, so my hubby and friends said. She isn't the only one.

There was a minor event while she was buying shoes in Aldo in NY, but nothing worth printing. She is not kind to people. That does not go unnoticed.

Someone mentioned no Limo? That is right a smaller, older Town Car is TLC's budget for moving her around.

We probably will see the rest of the shows filmed, they will loop them together my hubby said as his buddy said, they never film enough for a 45 min show any longer, nor do they get the advertisers minutes. They have cut back on time, so through the summer you may see several if not about 4 or 5 half hour shows. That is it.

Her attempt to Twitter is a last ditch effort and is pretty much a joke to anyone in the business. Anyone who Twitters, who is who is the business rarely twitters their own.

No, I'm not sad. She is not my favorite person, but a shrew that hurt many good people in my hubby's business as she was more than rude.


Again Happy Easter, lousy e mail to send, huh? Not really, she is small potatoes, very small. No interview shows will touch her with a 10 ft poll. It is the buesiness, she flame and then you either work the sytem or you flame out. Looks like your friend and best mother flamed out and the kids helped. Almost like manequins, have you noticed?

Moon Over Miami said...

I agree that this is not any different than when someone always says that the kids have these activities, the kids have friends, the kids have sleepovers.

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

I don't agree. Commenting about what the children do IN school on photo day, what they do IN school during a Christmas pageant, what they do IN school during a graduation ceremony is much different than what they do at sleepovers or visiting friends on weekends. It's not the same at all, no matter how you look at it.

Why should all be kept quiet when comments are made that the kids are isolated, locked in the basement, never have any friends, never go anywhere AFTER school? Shouldn't those statements be disputed if someone knows that they aren't true? Or should they just blindly be accepted as fact?

When someone leaked that the kids had been expelled, Kate went on television to "set the record straight." Should more information be leaked about what they do IN school, their behavior IN school, which would give her yet another chance to show her face on television to again set the record straight? Do we really want to open up a can of worms and give her the excuse to be interviewed on national television and publicize more of the children's in-school activities?

Kat said...

She says... "Travel is knowledge"~ but if the twit does not educate herself or her children on their travels, why bother going anywhere?

I'm Ready, Mr.DeMille said...

My opinion of K8 not "allowing" pictures of the kids to be taken anywhere is;

She (in her twisted mind, is creating a "dream life" for them.
If there are no pictures of life with the "common" folk, the kids, later in life, will not have any memories to look back on other than those that are on the reality tapes. It boils down to brain washing. In the future she can and will throw it up to the kids, "look at all your mother did for you and now you are ungrateful". It is not beyond belief that K8 will use any means to downgrade and dismiss people who do not fit into her imaginary world.
]The only reality that the kids have in their lives are the filmed shows. As the kids get older, the interaction between them and the outside world is very strained. They are living in a controlled environment and it does not include outsiders. As they get older, the future is wrought with stress as someday it will be necessary to deal with outsiders and they will not be able to handle the stress of coping as individuals in the "real world". They will be in for a real rude awaking through no fault of their own. There is no way that they will remain a tight-knitted unit doing everything as a single entity for the rest of their lives.
I do hope that they get help before more damage is done.

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

This is where Kate misses the boat every time. These kids are part of a classroom first, and should be part of this as it defines them in their day to day lives and progression.

The fact that she sees them as commodities, rather than individuals, who have a life outside of filming, is digusting and disgraceful. When do these kids ever get a chance to have a life outside of the K +8 brand? I can not imagine NOT having photos/memories of my childhood, with milestones in my life, unless it was tied to a brand. These kids are sacrificing/missing out on far too much, all at the expense of their selfish mother.

And she does everything for her kids? I think not, and therein lies the problem.

so sick of her said...

Happy Easter to one & all!
Tami: if the one tup: Joel, is hiding his face, it could be because Kate told him to hide his face when paps are around, so a little kid will keep hiding their face until told otherwise. Kate has a way of making those poor kids listen, I don't care for that way. And this giving another Easter(she said they celebrated before they went to Dad) to the kids after they come back from Dad, is Kate showing up Jon. You know anything you do I will do better(or according to Kate betterist), Kate is buying her kids love.

Mystical said...

New Zealand is glad Kate Gosselin is back in the USA. She was rude, demonstrating very bad manners....no surprise there as that is who she is.

I question why this terrible woman has such an over-the-top reaction to the paparazzi. I believe it all comes back to money.....she doesn't like anyone making money off of her (Except TLC). She is one greedy grifter.

Wife of a pap: thank you for your post. They are always helpful, especially to those of us who aren't in the business and don't know how it works. Your posts are very insightful and educational.
They also highlight just what a clown Kate Gosselin is. I read she has hissy fits when the paps bother her, but from what I've learned from you, she and her team are instrumental in getting the paps there to photograph her.
Her fits are just an act and give her some drama to ham up for the camera. It's sad that she has been reduced to this, instead of providing for her family honourably in the nursing profession.

Shoka's Understudy said...

Would love to see the picture that they took when they stopped kate in mid air of the sky jump.

Bet she looked a sight.

I felt so bad for Mady, she had a very sad upset face on her and she ran to her mother. I really believe kate did that stunt mostly to help control her kids and make them feel sorry for her. They all ran to her. So sad.

kate loves to steal her children's thunder. Attention Grabbing Fame Mom.

so sick of her said...

I guess the sheeple have out done themselves. They are now spiel out US dogma, on freedom of speech. Well, I guess they live by a double standard. It's ok for them to have people banned from twitter and harassed by them, and won't let people express their right to freedom of speech. Cause, their rights are the only ones that count. And did you all know, that according to the sheeple 77% of those who twitter are not American? So I guess that most of the people on Kate's Twitter page are not American. Or more likely not adults, can't spell and use poor English(Kate included). Must be a slap in the face for all of those Twitters, who tweet Kate and know they are not American(some are not, nothing wrong with that)). This reminds me of what Kate said on a recent Talk show, interview, That 99% of stuff on Kate is a lie, that includes what Kate says. So Kate is lying all the time. LOLOLOL

Wendy said...

Ok, so let me get this straight...she puts her kids in front of cameras for TV but when one single pap. wants a picture she flips out...what on earth could he have been posting that the cameras had already captured. Oh and by the way Kate, people do have actual names..not Mr Kiwi man or Mr Bungee jump guy...but wait, you are better than all of us just because you have 8 kids on TV...get over yourself and go back to being parent...no one can relate to trips to Australia or jumping off buildings. Most of us work, pay our own bills, and earn money the real way.

tlc, how dumb are u? said...

Wife of pap, please continue to check in with us. Love your posts, as they seem to check out and in addition, bring us news that the vile Ms Gosselin is on her way out.

Regarding Kate not allowing the tups to go to preschool on picture day: it sure sounds like Kate. So paranoid, so untrusting, so greedy. (I assume she thought these pix would bring $ to someone besides her). To that I say, so what? I doubt anyone would sell the pix, as their own child is in it, and who would pay money for such a picture? There are plenty of pap photos of the kids, arranged by their own mother. I bet the paps would have been long gone over a year ago if Kate didn't pursue them so relentlessly. I'm thrilled to hear that they couldn't care less anymore, for the kids' sake and for the sheer joy in the huge diss at Kate. She has burned bridges everywhere.

Speaking if burning bridges, do you think tlc will ever send them on another trip...ever? Would any city's department of tourism welcome this fool? Would any hotel or zoo or whatever want this person to visit them and be the rude, ignorant, condescending, ungrateful, nontipping idiot that she is? She is an embarrassment as an ambASSador, and managed to piss off people in Bald Head Island, Alaska, NYC, Auatralia, and New Zealand, to name a few places. Hope she's saving her pennies for her stupid bucket list, as her free trips are numbered, if not already a perk of the past. And to THAT, I say, about time and Hahahahaha

tlc, how dumb are u? said...

Wife of pap, does your husband or his friends know anything about Chris? Do you have any idea why he continues to take Kate's picture, albeit infrequently? Is it because he lives near her or because tlc pays him or what? Please let us know what you feel comfortable sharing...thanks!

Sure, I'd just love to have Kate come to my town, stay at a lovely condominium with a great view so her kids can smear chocolate pudding all over the balconies, she can complain about the local cuisine and treat the hard working people who are there to serve the customers like they are beneath her. She would be so welcome, and
we might even throw her a parade

First of all: Hope everyone had a Happy Easter or wonderful Passover week!

Personally, I take all random sources with an equal grain of salt---good or bad reports. Sorry, but, anyone can get on the internet and claim they're in the know. When Paul Peterson says he has first hand information, I believe him. He's putting his name and reputation on the line. It's also harder (for me) to believe stories of things that supposedly happen years ago. People do talk. When they left E-Town and moved to the McMansion, there was talk about that before it was announced, there was talk about the marriage being over before it officially ect. Why didn't these details come out back when they (supposedly) took place?

Conclusions/speculations can be drawn on certain topics based of the video footage shown. But it's really hard to know what first hand stories are true or not without proof, or a verified party. When mags, TMZ ect report on a story they may list just "a source close to the situation says...", but they are putting it out there in a way that they can be liable if its false. This source may not be named, but it was checked and I'm sure the media outlet in question would name names if someone claimed they were lying, to back themselves up. Therefore more often than not, TMZ, and mags like OK and US, actually seem to be right. Of course not all the time, but enough to give them credibility.

Hope she's saving her pennies for her stupid bucket list, as her free trips are numbered, if not already a perk of the past. And to THAT, I say, about time and Hahahahaha

______________________

I think the free trips are drying up immediatrely. As per her twitter page, the person who had connections with the space camp in Alabama (I believe it was Alabama), tweeted her a week ago to inform her that she was told from the media relations person that it is a no go. haha, I think Kate thought it was a given that this person was going to hook them up for this camp. Kate said she had looked into this camp a while back.

I think in the past, Kate looked up places she wsnted to go and put the bug in TLC's ear. Fools tht they were, I think they tried hard to grant every wish. Even Jodi and Kevin had said that from the very beginning K&J would present a "wish list" to TLC at the beginning of every season. It started with renos to their home snd now is bssicially trip after trip.

Well Kate it looks like the well is now dry. I think TLC is over paying big $$$ for trips. They'll finish up with contractusal obligations and then they are through. I think the only reason they continued with the Aust. trip was because they were contractually obligated to Kate for this trip.

Katie will now be paying her own way. or she'll be really busy working the phones on her own for freebies.

Kate = Syrup of Ipecac said...

If this has already been posted, forgive me. I did a quick search for "twitter" on this page, but didn't find it.

I can't believe how ignorant Kate REALLY is! Today, Easter Sunday, tweeted a reminder about her show:
"Reminder: tweet party 10pm EST time tomorrow night during K+8... don't miss it! Super fun episode.... Jamie and Kate with kids in Philly!"

Yet there is a special "Wild About Prince Harry" on TLC at 10:00PM tomorrow.

What is with this goofball?
It does, however, read like someone else wrote it, but who?

Annie said...

Kate is saying via her twitter page that there will be a show tomorrow. TLC's website says that there wont be. There will be a Kate on tomorrow but its going to be Kate Middleton not Kate Gosselin.

How can she not know when her show will be on?

Kate showed up on her Twitter page at 7 am and issued her usual greeting. Normally there would be a swarm of sheeple, but this time there wasn't ONE sheeple there to answer her. 20 minutes later, 2 sheeple showed up, but by then Kate had left. tick, tick, Tick.

I saw that(Kate's twit) about the show today at 9pm central time. As I have said before, Kate does not look beyond her nose. She does not read anything or look anything up. If she gets a leaflet from a place, that is the only info she knows. On her tweets, she keeps thanking people who tweet her(so desparate for fans). Kate tweeted this morning, that V-day and all the little holidays, are ridiculous. V-day is a minor holiday for violence against women and/or V-day WWII. The kids also have today off, so what is Kate gonna do, well she said do errands and laundry, not spend time with the kids. Kate could have did the laundry and ran errands on saturday and sunday. Kate does everything to avoid spending time with her kids. She must really hate Jon. Cause, you know the kids look more like Jon than her. So every time she looks at them, they remind her of Jon. I give kudos to any & all people who can rise above a divorce(love your kids, no matter who their dad was/is, adopt a kid and give them love, even as this child is not theirs, but not Kate, finds every excuse to get away from them. It also means the routine pics of her doing errands(paps alert)! She is a sorry excuse for a parent.

I am so thankful that Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama said: it is a no go, or this is what would be said.

Huntsville, we have a problem.

Mary said...

Kate can go to space camp and take the kids. The problem is She will have to pay. NO TLC camera's to film it. No babysitters. Travel in coach no more first class hotels, She does know campers do not stay in 5 star hotels. Kate only a few hotel room YOU will have to share one with your kids (a first) Steve and other Body guards will need a room.
Who is she going to blame for this us.

ger1man27 said...

ger1man27 said:
I was just wondering who will Kate blame when the show goes off the air? Of course she will blame all the haters but will she blame her children and her fans? I wonder how her loyal fans will react when and if Kate blast them for not watching her show? It is amazing how that one fan site has not mentioned the ratings drop at all.

Jane in California said...

That's right Mary - anyone bringing in as much money as Kate has been earning per episode, should surely be able to find a way to take her children to Space Camp. To save on airfare - do a road trip in the van instead. Stay at relatively inexpensive hotels, like Howard Johnson or Marriott Suites. Bring along certain food items that won't go bad without refrigeration (things like dry cereal for breakfasts, granola bars, trail mix, crackers/chips, sandwich bread and so forth), and then pick up perishable goods once you arrive and put in small room fridge (lunch meats, milk, yogurts). Go out to a fancier dinner only once or twice on your trip; otherwise, order pizza or Chinese take-out.

It was always ridiculous to me that TLC tried to sell Kate as your typical single mom, struggling to make ends meet. She so clearly has no skills in that department. As a real life single mom, I know how to make a penny stretch til it squeaks. I've done the above sort of road trip, just so I could take my son to some fun vacation spots on our budget. With a little careful planning, Kate could take her children on a variety of excursions on the cheap. But that's not what she wants -- she wants to go on trips involving first class flights, stays at luxury hotels, free entry to local attractions, special treatment from the locals (including police escort from the airport), and so on.

All I can figure is that the execs at TLC are completely out of touch with reality. Maybe they actually believe that Kate is a typical single mom (could anyone be that out of touch? Maybe so.) I would hope that the dismal ratings are finally getting the truth through to the execs and advertisers that they backed the wrong horse in this race. She's a dud.

Laurie said...

I am in no way, shape or form a K8 fan but I took her "v" day comment to mean valentine's day only because it's a day that she'll have to shell out money to get small gifts and/or candy for the kids.

So... is she going to tweet tonight even if her program isn't being broadcast?????

wramblinwreck said...

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

No matter what the execs believed about Kate, the one thing that would get their attention is a downturn in the ratings. If they wouldn't consider a trip to the Huntsville AL Space Center, after shelling out big $$$ for trips to Alaska and Australia, it's very likely they're ready to pull the plug and will spend as little as possible to finish the season so they can move on to their next big thing.

Is it over yet said...

Did anyone catch the beginning of the New Zealand episode where Kate says: "We were unfortunately done in Australia but we weren't headed home. We were headed to New Zealand. SINCE WE MET STEVE AND HIS FAMILY, we learned a lot about New Zealand."

Gee, must be a slow day for Kate's sheeples, Kate was last tweeting 9 hours ago. Must be a slow sheeple day. I wonder what pics we are gonna see of her tommorrow? And Ger1man27: yeah, Kate's Twitter site and sheeple have avoided commenting on the ratings. I guess they are pretending they don't exist!

Spring Has Sprung said...

Kate meant Valentine's Day. She wouldn't know any other V Day, such as V-Day or V-E Day or V-J Day (World War II). Doubt if she even knows about Veteran's Day.

Moon Over Miami said...

Easy. She didn't tweet that. The intern did, hence the "Jamie and Kate" lingo. Kate doesn't speak in the third person. Intern messed up.

That's what I figured too Moon over Miami. I was a little surprised that they mentioned Jamie at all -- she's not a draw to viewers is she? It's hard to pretend to be someone else -- I wonder if the intern got reprimanded. Thankfully for TLC, Kate's fans aren't the brightest of bulbs and probably didn't even catch on.

-----
I think that has been the problem for too long now. They have had an identity crisis with Kate. Her role that she played well was the shrew wife who supposedly took care of the kids and kept an organized house. She was their "star" (gag) in that role. But then Jon was gone and all her lies were exposed (e.g. she had a billion helpers, she was never home, she couldn't cook or organize anything), and since that point, TLC hasn't been able to find that good role for her again.

They've just been coasting on fumes, or rather, the long-lasting support of gullible sheeple. They've tried Can Do Kate, the hot (gag again) single mom in bikini, and now a Lucy and Ethel/Oprah and Gayle-type duo. I think they're FINALLY realizing that this dog won't hunt.

so sick of her said...

What a moron, Kate is. Didn't know the her show was not on tonight. Told you guys, she does not read the news, look at the news or check out anything, she probably did not read her e-mail. Oh, here is something interesting, I was watching the royal stuff and TLC show next mondays K8 commercial, then later for May 9th, in the 10pm time, 9 central, Ouints by surprise is gonna be on. What happened, no K8? Is may 2 the final episodes? (they are doing a marathon). Also, Kate said on tweeter that she will be out of town during the day tommorrow? Maybe meeting with TLC exc. or going to NYC again? But it sounded like a day trip. Maybe why Kate has not been too Twitting today, is maybe TLC called her, about the ratings. Also that tweeter from this morning on thanking people and she keeps saying for your support, to keep her up. She sure is not twittering a lot today.

Teresa said...

Has anyone found out if TLC was filming in Mexico or was this a little 'down time' for Khate and Steve to recuperate from her 'exhaustive' ( just threw up in my mouth-gaggin') mothering duties.

Mary said...

I think Kate was away for weekend. they are no photo's because no one cares. we know the Paps are on TLC payroll. this is why she tweeted early this Am and probably was on a plane all day. she just tweeted she is going out of town tomorrow.

Does TLC foot the bill for Kate's trips or do the corporations that invite Kate pay all her expenses? I'm not in the industry, but I'm assuming it's the corporations and therefore TLC doesn't care where she goes or what she does.

I wonder if corporations will continue to invite her since her ratings are low and continue to drop.

Jane, I think that's an understatement! Were any comments at all made about "Kate and Jamie," or were they too busy getting ready for the popcorn party that was never to be? They believed her when she said she was live tweeting tonight during the show...they couldn't look it up in their television listings and see that it wasn't on the schedule? They do know how to read listings, don't they?

It was reported that Steve was President Clinton's former bodyguard. And was security for some country's royal family. Doesn't he feel a HUGE failure now he's 'taking care' (giggle) of a simple reality ahem actress? Loser/child abuser/liar/etc.,

last2cu said...

I was around during the Clinton administration and i never saw STEVE! Never even heard of him! SO prove it to me!

Jane in CA said...

Re Steve's prior security services:

He was never a body guard or security detail for President Clinton. However, his firm's website claims he did "close protection planning and management for the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), for the Royal Families of Britain, Thailand, and Brunei, U.S. President Clinton, and many other elected heads of state."

Considering how many times we've seen him carrying bags, Kate's purse, or walking behind her -- he's either not very good as a bodyguard, or his job while with Kate is not as a bodyguard, but more as a minder and gatekeeper.

Nield has shown he cares more for the per diem he makes while "guarding" Kate Gosselin than he does for his own dignity, or for how his perceived relationship with Kate reflects on his own marriage.

cali-girl said...

Just caught a glimpse of the TLC(!!??!!) program on Prince William and his soon to be princess, Kate Middleton. She does NOT have a bodyguard right now! She's about to marry a prince!

Why would Kate G ever need one?

Here in California, many stars walk freely about with their families, even stopping for ice cream --all without a bodyguard!

Imagine that!!

Jane in CA said...

Even if Kate were traveling today, she could still use Twitter via her phone, if she wanted to. Sounds like both Kate and the lowly intern have a case of Twitter burn out lol.

I just went to google news and did a search on Gosselin (no other word, just Gosselin) and for the first time in ages, NONE (not a one) of the top ten results returned had anything to do with Khate, Jon or the kids. Hurray!!!

Move over Katie Irene, there's a new Gosselin in town grabbing headlines and his name is Rick!

She has dropped right off the news radar this week... bliss.

I have always believed he is just a life manager for her. She is clearly incapable of running her own life. Jon did it all. She could not coordinate anything, has no work ethic to do anything, is not mature enough to figure things out on her own. She threw a fit when he would not lead her in the airport. They needed to hire someone to take over that role. When she began to travel without Jon I think they used Steve more and more to just get her from point A to point B. Calling him security or a bodyguard is just a cover. He's a man servant. A purseholder. Nothing more.

Tami said...

I am wondering if the whole thing about no pictures at school and Jon not being able to talk about them are related. Maybe she has a contract where she alone controls their brand and no one else is allowed to photograph them other than when they are out in public and only Kate is allowed to go around talking about them. It appears she was never held to the rule that they could not be talked about. It's pretty bad when she controls all aspect of them as her business assets and not as her children.

Regarding US presidential security - The Secret Service and ONLY the Secret Service provides security for the president, which lasts until the president dies.

It's possible Steve-os "firm" was involved in security for that meeting at some level, but there is no way Steve-o was involved with President Clinton and his Secret Service detail.

On a more fun note - Is Jamie going to tweet this week? Will Khart allow it? Can't wait to find out!!!!!

----------

The whole thing about no pictures at school, according to someone whose child was in the preschool class (at the church) was two years ago. According to recent reports, Collin didn't want to have his picture taken at school for his individual class photos, so obviously being under contract isn't relevant if the kids were getting their photos taken for class pictures.

Red Sky At Night said...

Not all bodyguards are identifiable. They are undercover and dress in a way that wouldn't be recognized. They may be in the crowd, sometimes ahead of the person, and not standing immediately next to the person they are guarding.

Red Sky At Night said...

It was reported that Steve was President Clinton's former bodyguard. And was security for some country's royal family.

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

Presidents of the United States have members of the Secret Service guarding them. I know a little bit about how guarding works because my father's best friend was a member of the Secret Service for two presidents. Neild never was a member of the Secret Service. If you read the bio/resume carefully, it's embellished, as resumes sometimes are.

Shoka's Understudy said...

I was curious about the names of the horses that will be running in the Kentucky Derby, and I was suprised at some of the names and owners names.

Dialed In: pink iPhone is cemented to her hand, for twittering, calling Chris.

Mucho Macho Man: She will be looking for a Macho Man like a Cop to whip her kids into shape. Always looking for someone else to do her parenting job.

Archarcharch: His owners name is Jon Court. Spelled exactly like his. She always wins against Jon in court.

Nehro: Owner named Steve. It's a stretch but Nero played the fiddle while Rome burned. kate is the same way.

Pants on Fire: We all know what a pathological liar she is.

Midnight Interlude: Hoping to get a man under the Kentucky moonlight. How is she going to kiss him with PurseBoy 2 inches away?

The Factor: The factor of this trip is that they are inviting Celebrities that will donate money to raise money for this years charity. I wonder how much kate will give or even give anything at all?

so sick of her said...

Well, Kate did a few tweets this morning, and said she is on her way to a meeting(maybe TLC is giving her the pink slip, cause you all know that there is nothing scheduled after May 2). So if this is in NYC, TLC must have flipped the bill, flew her there(cause if she was going there for hair, she drives), and will fly her back same day. Cause Kate said it was a day trip. Also, Kate commented after she landed, and got her Starbucks, that she hopes all is well, and said earlier, I hope your day runs smooth. Why would you say that, unless you were expecting a crappy day. Kate was not being silly in her tweets either. Something is up!

cali-girl said...

Just to be clear about my comment re: Kate Middleton and no bodyguards.

The commentator for the show said she does NOT have them now. She is followed by many paparazzi always. The laws in England do not allow this--it said she calls the palace and then the paps are told to go away or face arrest (of course, they are replaced by others).

I posted this b/c I would have guessed that they were present--just blended in with the crowd.

And then there's the irony of none for Kate M and TLC supposedly paying for one for Kate G.

There was also the incident fairly recently where Charles and Camilla were in their car and overcome by angry protestors.

My point really was --why does Kate G. think she's needs an ever present, totally visible bodyguard who tells people to move out of the way?

Even Queen Elizabth carries her own purse! :-)

so sick, I agree with you! You don't say something like that unless you dread your day. Payback is a given when you treat your kids, husband, parents, siblings, friends, service workers, general public, sky jump, sky walk attendant Brad, kids friends with no respect and with harsh comments and words that hurt.

She has no clue what she is going to be having to deal with in the near future. Like earthquake tremors, for centuries,
she is long overdue for the Big One.

I just hate it for the kids. PurseBoy, not so much.

Shoka's Understudy said...

When the paparazzi and the prod. guy in NZ had the little shoving/cursing deal, kate was walking with the kids and when the cursing started going, the camera was right there and caught her turning her head to look back behind her down the trail. She was looking for PurseBoy. Then the Zoologist Paul went over and let them have it and they left.

Now that I think about it that could of been a set up by TLC. Because the prod. went and confronted the paps and it got out of hand. The camera was just there in the perfect place to catch kates reaction.

So funny her face when she looked back for PurseBoy. She looked like she was auditioning for the new movie lead role of Betty Boop.

so sick of her said...

Kate's tweets are very quiet today. Infact, it looks as if she is back home, and quiet. Maybe TLC gave her the pink slip! I don't think she got her hair done, this was strictly a business trip. Maybe they cut the cord. Cut the oxygen. If TLC did, I do hope she won't take it out on the kids.

One can speculate until the cows come home, but just because she said that she hopes the day runs smooth doesn't mean that she expects not everything to be fine and dandy in her world. There are so many different scenarios that could be taking place that it just makes no sense to even begin to surmise where she went or what she is doing or when she will return. Bottom line - who cares if she's getting her hair done or if she's going to have the implants rearranged? She'll dig her own grave sooner or later without the help from anyone or anything. She's her own worst enemy.

to the person wondering about the birthday party. We were told about the party at the beginning of the week...got the invitation after class the next day and the party was that weekend.

Invitation said only one parent may accompany the child, no siblings or other children were invited.

we had to leave our phones and cameras in the car.

When we drove up to the party we were stopped by security guard and had to sign a wavier to be filmed.

I can't remember if that wavier had the clause about not saying anything that would be "negative" to "Jon and Kate" the entity or something like that....or if that was the in the original paperwork they wanted us to sign at the beginning of the school year so they could film during school.

Is it over yet said...

There's one more episode listing for May 30th. Will it be the Easter egg hunt or Giving Back? Nothing listed for June yet on Wiki. What ever happened to the filming on Thanksgiving, grocery shopping with all the kids (which she never does without the cameras), her birthday party and date night, shoes shopping in NY? All these were spotted with the TLC crew following and probably waiting to be shown in June. The kids birthday party will be the start of filming for the summer season, if it continues, unfortunately.

Tami said...

beentheredonethat, all of that sounds pathetic. These kids don't have a chance at a normal life. The other kids must think of them as alien creatures with all these rules. It's not fair to do this to kids--the Gosselins OR the classmates! Who writes on an invitation that only one parent can come, etc? It's not like I'd bring the whole family when my kid goes to a party, but the rules are just rude. Seems like it would not be worth it to attend the party.

Miranda said...

Yet another uproar on Kate's twitter today -- there seems to be a new one every day.

This time it was over a male fan who tweeted Kate, referring to her by a vulgar sexual term (which, he later said, he meant only as a joke(?!)) When a teenage fan innocently asked him what the term meant, he referred her to another tweeter -- his online friend -- to explain it to her.

Today that same guy tweeted that he's "registered"-- his exact word, he didn't explain it further. It got a big reaction; several pro-kids people jumped all over him while the sheeple defended him, saying that he was just joking (again) and that the haterz were just picking on him because they're jellus of Kate. (No kidding, that was their rationale)

Hardly any tweets from Katie today -- not surprised. Her twitter page has become a brawlroom rather than the shrine she meant it to be.

she never ceases to amaze said...

beentheredonethat, wwwwwwhaaaat?? Please elaborate on this waiver you mentioned. Specifically, were you asked to sign a waiver stating you couldn't say anything negative about J and K for filming that they wanted to do AT SCHOOL? If so, WTF?? Kate really thought filming at school was acceptable for her kids and their classmates? Man, I'd be so pissed off if this presumptuous bitch even considered filming her kids AND MINE if I were you. Sheesh. And to have the nerve to ask parents to sign a waiver? Wow. Obviously filming never happened at school, and that's great. I wonder if the school or the fellow parents stopped that from happening. Just wow. This woman has no concern for her own kids' (or anyone else's) well-being. It's all about her, making money, being famous, and that godforsaken show. She will trample anyone to acheive her goals, including preschoolers. I'm just flabbergasted.

so sick of her said...

Well Sherrybaby: Kate tweeted, that she met with production. Then said the show has not been canceled and neither has Twisted Kate. I think Kate is just dragging along her devotes, just like her and Jon did about the marriage. The fact that Kate has not even mentioned once about the ratings from the last show. Says a lot. Her tweets are blab, blab, blab, nonsense! She has to constantly convince herself positive thinking. She also said that there are more episodes to come and some special thing. Kate is getting desperate! What is left to show? If people did not tune in to the biggest trip she has taken, what makes her and TLC think people will tune in to some total garbage on her twisted view of history, hockey game and watch her make the show about her, or her being a drama queen, same old same old stuff. What cause she is Kate Gosselin! Biggest FOOL on TV!lolololololol

Kate lies said...

Twisted Kate can't be canceled since it was never in production. :)

TLC uses this wonderful device called putting the show "on hiatus" rather than usually saying it's canceled. You notice it's vanished from the schedule with no word said about it.

so sick of her said...

I would take Kate's Tweets as a grain of salt. She herself said that 99% of what's on the internet is a lye(that includes what she says). So how do we know Kate is not lying or stretching the truth. I know from experience, that when I was laid -off, I was not to tell anyone, until the big bosses, made the announcement. I was to go about work as if nothing was wrong(my biggest acting job I ever had, and I'm not an actor). I think this is what Kate was told to do. Act like nothing is wrong, even her tweets are a lot less, then they were. Telling her fans to hold the fort down, I can't tweet a lot, then explain I have a lot to do. The fact she has and her sheeple have avoided the whole ratings, says a lot. That meeting was to tell Kate if the rating on the next show do not improve(like above a million) your show will not be renewed and possibly canceled. With Kate you have to read between the lines. You know for nothing TLC put the royal stuff on. BBC America is doing the same thing, but one of their show Top Gear(which are re-runs right now)was put on on monday, then on tuesday the continued with the royals. So why didn't TLC do that? If Kate is their golden girl, why preempt her. WE all know Kate knew the show was not gonna be on, Kate is playing the dumb blond act. And now the Philly show on May2, and nothing till end of month(May 30th) How does TLC expect to get rating with that much distance between shows? I think they don't and are doing this, to get bad rating to cancel. Kate will fall for anything Hook, Line & sinker, for Fame!

Shoka's Understudy said...

I just can't believe that TLC didn't tell kate that it was over at the meeting yesterday.

This country is in such bad shape to have to watch the show. With the economy, the weather and other crisis going on, we are suppose to watch and support and be fans of a show that shows lavish vacations every show and sees 8 children having to work to support their mothers need for greed.

No thanks TLC.

She is planning to go to the Kentucky Derby next weekend. Will Jon get the kids or will a 19 yr. old min. wage babysitter get the gig?

MoGal said...

Kate says Twist of Kate has not been cancelled yet she's not been filming for it. Considering she Tweets about her every move I'm sure she'd let her followers know if she was. I think Kate lies is right-it was never in production so it can't be cancelled. It doesn't sound like she's been working much at all according to her twitter.

When she Twitters it sounds so desperate. She's begging her fans to stick with her and be patient. I wonder if she'll continue to Tweet once her show is officially cancelled. Will TLC even tell her or announce that it's been cancelled? I bet she has a huge meltdown when the end comes. She has not prepared herself or the kids for this at all.

about the waiver...
I believe this is a waiver TLC makes EVERYONE sign that is going to be on camera. I remember when Josh and Anna married on the Dugger show, an uncle of Anna's wrote about the ordeal he went through with this wedding. He was told by TLC if he didn't sign the waiver he could not be at the wedding ceremony (since the whole ceremony was taped). EVERYONE present st the wedding HAD to sign this waiver. He was quite upset and stated that TLC pretty much owned the family. The Dugger's felt terrible, but their hands were tied. He fought very hard not to sign the waiver out of principle, I'm not sure how it ended. If he conceded and signed or if he decided not to attend.

Exhausted said...

Tami said...
Who writes on an invitation that only one parent can come, etc? It's not like I'd bring the whole family when my kid goes to a party, but the rules are just rude. Seems like it would not be worth it to attend the party.

---
I agree, Tami. Kate always treats the rest of the world as though they are peasants and as though they would make a circus out of something like the party. SHE is the only one who has made a circus out of these children's lives, but she's afraid guests won't know where to draw the line. Really, Kate? You film children on the potty and scream like a maniac in public places, and you're worried others don't know where to draw the line?! Unbelievable. They could be giving out iPads as party favors, and I wouldn't go.

bbeau said...

To clarify about the waiver, the uncle of the Dugger family had to sign the waiver even though he was not going to be on camera. Everyone on the set at the wedding, whether they were on camera or not, had to sign the waiver. I'm not sure if it was a confidentiality waiver, a liability waiver, maybe it was both.

Today that same guy tweeted that he's "registered"-- his exact word, he didn't explain it further. It got a big reaction; several pro-kids people jumped all over him while the sheeple defended him, saying that he was just joking (again) and that the haterz were just picking on him because they're jellus of Kate.

=-=========================

I saw the initial exchange with the term that apparently is a vulgar one per the urban dictionary. I went to the guy's twitter page and he just looks like a perv (yes,I know it's wrong to judge a book by it's cover, but he does look and sound pervy to me).

Now the guy posts that he is "registered." I would think he's a registered sex offender. Who else has to register? Felons? Voters? Why would he announce he's a registered voter? The guy clearly enjoyed stirring things up before and getting lots of attention to his twitter page, so he's doing it again.

Yup, Kate's twitter page is descending into utter chaos. It also shows you how twisted Kate's fans are, that they are standing up for this creepy guy. There is no logic, no rational thought involved. It's knee jerk - if their dear leader is maligned for allowing a pervert to post on her twitter page, they must rush to the pervert's defense.

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

I remember this incident as well, and I recall that the relative did end up signing the waiver form because he didn't want to cause upset within the family. But it only illustrated to me further what a terrible idea it is to sign your family's rights away in order to be on television.

It is one thing for an adult to sign away their rights in order to be on television, but it's very wrong to sign away both your parental rights and the rights of your children for the same process. I consider it making a deal with the devil. That's why I don't find the Duggar parents particularly admirable or "godly" because they've put Mammon ahead of all else that they supposedly value.

As to when KatePlus8 will be canceled/non-renewed, all we can do is speculate. We know that the new episode, Philly Fun, will air on 05/02, at 10:00 p.m. - not really a family friendly time slot. It next airs at 1:00 a.m. on May 3rd. No other shows are listed through 05/11/11, which means it doesn't have a regular weekly time slot.

Does this sound like enthusiasm and full support from Discovery/TLC for KatePlus8? Or does it sound like a show slowly fading away into obscurity?

Nova said...

Let me get this straight, someone who is Twittering to Kate is saying things that seem to indicate that he's sexually perverted. Someone calls him on his posts, so he then posted that he was 'registered'. Has anyone found out who this person is and if it's true? I would think that he should be reported to his parole officer.

And if the above scenario was true, then where the hell is purse-boy? Shouldn't he be overseeing Khate's twitter page? Wouldn't he insist that the perv be banned, blocked, or whatever is done to stop people from posting to someone else's page?

Khate may act like they're in love, but if purse-boy isn't right there keeping pervs from interacting with her, even on Twitter, then I don't think he's paying attention, or doesn't care about her or the kids.

Save the Gosselin 8

so sick of her said...

I see that Kate's tweets are, very few today. Perhaps TLC told Kate to lay-low with the tweeting. It's been 9 hours since she last tweeted. And before that she only tweeted a handful. What's the matter Kate, OD on twitter or were you told to not twitter much. JMO

______________________

Several of us have appealed to Twitter to intervene, so far the guy's account is still active. None of the pro-kids people even know what state he lives in; he was asked and refused to disclose.

Just as disturbing, TLC has done nothing about it so far. And yes, one would think this would be within PurseBoy's job description,
but so far no action from anyone.

Kate's new dig at her haterz: "I don't have time for dumb." I guess that's also why she only spends 5 minutes a day catering to her fans.

re: K8G's Twitter Account:

While you may not be able to fully judge a book by its cover, it's pretty easy to come to some conclusions about a stah! by the quality of their fans. Birds of a feather flock together.

This is one thing K8G and Charlie Sheen really might want to consider.

txmom said...

My thoughts on her lack of twittering?

After yesterday's production meeting went Kate's way, she no longer needs to tweet her flock. You can tell by some of her words ..'hold down the fort', something along the lines of checking in from time to time, etc.

When Kate hits the panic button, she will call on her minions for help. Now that she got what she wanted, she no longer needs them.

Wonder how that makes her followers feel to be 'used'?

***********************************
I agree with you. How many times have we seen regular TV shows time slots get moved around to the point the viewer can find them. Putting K+8 at 10:00pm is the graveyard slot. How many people stay up to watch something past 10:00? Generally people watch a 9:00 show then head to bed to get up enough sleep for work the next day.

IMO TLC is not renewing K+8 just giving the show bad slots so it will die a slow death. Can't find the show? TLC doesn't care any more one way or the other (find it or don't).

And, just thought of this though others have mentioned it before, where's the advertising? No, TLC is not spending any more money than they have to on this sinking ship.

SS Titanic (SS Kate) has hit the iceberg (err Jumped the Shark). The ship is going down and Kate has no life boats (family/friends/famous people) to help save her.

^^^^^^^

I wish! My housework just begins after I get the kids to bed! I consider myself lucky if I'm in bed by 1 a.m.

"Khate may act like they're in love, but if purse-boy isn't right there keeping pervs from interacting with her, even on Twitter, then I don't think he's paying attention, or doesn't care about her or the kids."

Kate set herself up for this by twittering. She's not that naive that she doesn't know that these perverts saturate the internet and seek out anyone they darn well please. She should have seen it coming. It was inevitable - especially when you put your kids on television and film their private moments. She's nuts.

Ok, people check this out, saw this over at the other blog:
http://m.paidcontent.org/article/419-discoverys-tlc-gets-into-the-mom-blogs-business-with-parentables/
According to the article Kate Gosselin & Michelle Duggar are gonna give advice on this blog on parenthood. Also:
http://parentables.howstuffworks.com/
If you click on on Kates, it's her Sound of music blog and all the negative comments. It also says if I understood them, Kate gets paid only for as many people follow a blog???? And which ever one person who blogs and there are to be 30, gets the most following will get a show.???? I see Kate has not Tweetered yet!

More lies said...

kinman said...

This Twitter thing has really gone to Kate's head! I am not a follower but I did click on to her page to see what all the fuss is about, and apparently she had been absent for a few days (or hours??) and she thanked her cult followers for holding down the fort and promised she would be back more often, but only sporadically for now. She promised she would share news when she can, but she said she was NOT in London, as I assumed was rumored (?). I think she is just trying to drum up interest/drama/curiosity as to her new project so that everyone will be dying to know what it is.. I have the feeling the show is on its way out as TLC has tons of new projects going on,and Kate is yesterday's news. However she certainly thinks she is a "big deal" on Twitter although it seems like lots of her followers are teenage girls, not women of her own age-group. Of course with her mini-skirts, gum-chomping,immature way of speaking, and pink cell phone attached to her hand, she kind of acts like a teenager so maybe she can relate to that demographic.

so sick of her said...

Well, I see Kate has not twitting much. TLC must of put a muzzle on her. Or Jon might have has something to do with it. Like legal action? Kate has broken all the advise and rules the Police, who go on the internet, to keep children safe from perverts, tell you to do. Kate had completely ignored them. Cause, Kate is always right. Also, she has blown off her fans, and has favorites, BM is not one of them cause now those idoits are starting to fight with one another. So it is important for everyone who is just posting there to stop, you can still read the tweets. If you cancel you following, then we will see how many fans Kate really has. Oh, and I read at a certain site that, her sheeple have multi accounts. I guess if Kate does not tweet them they have a hissy fit.

so sick of her said...

Ok, I know this is a little OT. Kate could have landed an interviewing job with Entertainment Tonight if her last interviews were on the subject, she did not act like an idiot and had turned the interview, about herself. She could have been in England covering the Wedding or doing those Royal Wedding TLC shows. Now on the subject of TLC Royal Wedding shows, Is TLC a bunch of idiots? I watched some of their shows, the ones making the wedding comparing, spec on what kind of dress Princess Catherine will wear, was soooo stupid! The 2 shows, What to wear(whatever) and Say yes to the Dress, are those 2 guys stupid or something? That say yes guy was picking out ugly dresses, no sleeves, did her not read, Princess Catherine is getting married in an Abby, not on the beach, this is Royalty/England, the bride has to be covered up, no bare arms or shoulders. The guy who co-hosts on that show with Stacy, you don't make fun of a expert on etiquette, that British Expert was so annoyed, he tried to explain to them, but they took it as almost a joke. TLC has certainly gone into the toilet. And that Cake Boss guy, is he just stupid or what, of course they are not gonna hire you to make the cake, it all has to be British. I beginning to watch less and less TLC, and the new shows coming are pretty much more of the same. More garbage! JMO
