Jaded, I agree. Kate bought or was given "off the rack" no alterations to that strapless number. The girls were overflowing and made her look even cheaper.

Wonder why women are so concerned with anything more than a B+ or C cup. Anything else looks like Hollywood.

Never saw Kate, but is she petite? Or is she tall? Her bazooms are too big for her body when wearing strapless and the dress not fitted well by a seamstress.

Hope we hear her show is cancelled after May because it cost too much to make. Reality TV shows are replacing the good soap operas because of the budgets, so Kate has spent a lot of first class money of TLC' and got no ratings, right? Susan Lucci said that on Joy Bahar's show. They have the ratings but cost too much to produce and being replaced by Reality TV show. Sad.

Has the "mansion" been sold yet? Thanks for the update!

%%%%%%%%

The girls wouldn't have been overflowing if the dress would have fit properly, and the left side of her dress pulled up so it was even with the ride side. The bodice was not straight. She should have had someone there to tell her to hike it up over the left girl! Look at the photos!

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

Aaahhhh...can we say 'egomaniac'? Here kids. Let's play a game. Let's think of words about mommy.

I get that perhaps she is trying to protect her kids' privacy and therefore the game is all about what we know about her (except the family part of it. That is a bit of stretch that she actually values family). But see what she has done? She created this situation where her detractors have no choice but to poke criticism at her for making the game all about Kate. What a turn off she is. And taking a photo of it to show the world what a great mother she is and that her kids worship the ground she walks on? Blech. Such a loser you are, Kate.

If that sparkly, too tight number she wore at the Derby was her Daytime Wear, I sure don't want to see what she thought was appropriate for Nighttime!

A definite fashion don't.

Kate wants us to believe that her kids did this Bananagram about her:
http://yfrog.com/z/hsmtomj
*****************************

Nope-not believing the kids created it.

The word "nicely" appears 2x --that is something Kate says a lot, as in: walk "nicely" (I can hear her voice saying it right now!)but not something kids that age would probably say.

The words "never" "gives" "up" are also there (a little hidden message???), and laughter is spelled correctly (maybe Mady and Cara could spell that--more likely kids would choose "laugh," tho.

As an elementary school English Language Arts teacher who's used to working with kids the twins and the tups age, there's something weird here, IMHO.

Amy too said...

Something I find nicely funny is that she has 12,000 tweeter/twatter and she tells them she loves them. So why don't she like her fans in person? The distance is there between her and fans.

Bet the b party was fun with just 9 of them. Wonder what their sense of Mom and friends will be when they grow up. TLC people are family?

Is the mansion for sale? Not a nicely market for selling that white elephant.

Kia Ora said...

Had a super vacation in Lancaster. The weather was perfect, just rained at night (the way it should be on vaca). Absolutley gorgeous country. Nice people to be around. Kate I see, is still hanging on there by a floss up between one tooth. Its a shame she chooses a trashy look from DWTS to The Derby. Don't know what she thinks she's going to achieve by this? I think the chips will fall where they may quite shortly.

too bad, so sad said...

I just buzzed past a site called parentables. Both Ms. Duggar and our own Ms. Gosselin are writing articles for this site. Ms. Duggar wrote an article about keeping clothing for 19 children organized. I don't know who needs this advice since very few of us living in 2011 have 19 children.
Kate's article was on the Sound of Music-is that the only movie she has ever seen?

So, I have come away from this parentables site believing that Parentables is to great parenting what Lunchables is to find dining!

Edelweiss said...

This is nothing new. Sound of Music is old blog that was written last November by an intern masquerading as Kate. Kate can't write that well. Parentables was reinvented not too long ago as a "new" site with notable contributors. They used her old blog on there.

Thanks. We think so, too! Had I known you were going to be in the neighborhood, I would have taken you out for an early bird dinner special!

Mom in Lancaster-That would have been marvelous, could have turned an early bird into a night owl? lol
I just loved everything in Lancaster.

Carezee said...

Has anyone noticed that everyday Khate mentions something about running? She either says the weather is too bad to go out running or she is just too busy. For someone that runs all those many miles a week, as far as I can tell she only went running once with one of the older girls if that was even true. Apparently she only likes to run if she is being filmed.

Tami said...

where were the Kate coming out of court pics posted? I never saw them.

Tami said...

She actually said she worked the banagagram with the girls, not that they did it about her. But it was so ridiculous. She likely did it herself.

Lancaster's not really hopping at night, but we could have hoisted a few at Quips or Molly's Pub and had some good food at midnight!

I'm glad you like Lancaster County hospitality and had a good time. You lucked out with the weather. Our forecast right now is for nothing but rain as far as the eye can see, day and night.

I did the outlets today - spent too much, but had a blast using scratch-off coupons. Kate would have approved!

Tizzie said...

Kate may have "eight, count 'em, eight kids" but it has obviously never occured to her that there are families out there who have more kids than her and are living normal, off-TV lives, like the author of this funny comment I just read:

"mother of more than that stupid shrew Kate. lol"

so sick of her said...

Saw the pics of Kate & twins at the Giant Food store, what not buying organic? Kate had on, what a shocker! FLIP-FLOPS! No hooker heels! And of course she had that stupid look on her face of: oh, there are paps here, no stupid your camera crew is there, quit acting like you don't see them. So, Kate is tryin to up-stage Jon on birthday parties. If Kate thinks that people will tune in to see how much the kids have grown, then she must be living in another world(her own). Sorry but the kids look the same as they did last year, 6 months ago, 2 days ago, they have not changed. And who cares to watch over-indulgence on children of an over entitled grifter mother who's only claim to fame is having Twins & Tups, especially in this economy. Did't TLC have a show about over the top parents who threw lavish birthday parties, whatever happen to that show?

FormerFan said...

Kate's derby dresses are advertised on a website as "prom" dresses and ranged in price from $300 - $350.

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

If she wants to adopt a kid, fine.
If she is shopping for a reality show for said kid, then that's just wrong.

BTW, what's wrong with adopting kids from the USA? Or fostering? Lots of kids in the foster system need a home.

Amy too said...

Well, I found if you google Kate Gosselin, you get the photos of Kate and Steve coming out of the courthouse (I think it was time-tribune.com)

Then there was the so emotional for me (I am still crying) as Kate was quoted in the Examiner.com speaking about the new Princess Kate and how Kate really, honestly, relates to this new Princess and all of the MEDIA ATTENTION as she has gone through the same thing herself.

Kate is so emotional, sympathetic and understanding. Just broke my heart. Like watching the Sound of Music over and over.

She is such bull, isn't she?

Those are the only links I could find.

Oh yeah, there was some pictures of Kate's 3 Derby outfits and one of her with a head band on and what looks more like brown hair and flip flops doing all that shopping, since TLC is paying for it, for the big party for the 9 of them and I guess the camera crew (that is family right?)

readerlady said...

just wondering - I noticed 2 things in common, too, besides the grifting - "to be honest" and "trusting the Lord". Guess it runs in the family all right.

PatK said...

I'm really appalled that another Krieder has sunk so low begging for financial help. Have they no shame?

Throw out a few bible verses and beg, beg, beg!

Kia Ora said...

Mom in Lancaster- At the Doubletree where we stayed, there was a lot entertainment, at the pool, bar etc. Two proms Fri & Sat, one was from Oxford (which I had to look up)people where saying why did they have it so far away?

Clarissa wants an orphan. Here's the latest Kreider family grifting scheme.
*********************

OMG---I am so sickened by this posting!!! Generally, when you here of someone wanting to adopt a child, it wouldn't provoke an angry reaction. But here, I can't help but be angry! Yes, it is a blessing to adopt and raise a child, and even more so for a child of special needs. But I find it deplorable that she openly admits she cannot afford it yet is trying to do so anyway, and is begging for the help to do it. This is no different than her stupid sister getting pregnant after the twins when she couldn't afford it either. It's throwing caution to the wind and the consequences be damned. SO SELFISH!! This is not just about getting the money for the adoption, what about the cost of another person to raise and live with, who also has health problems requiring more money!?!? This just makes me sick......what a sick sick sick beggar! Am I alone in this reaction or line of thinking???

Rainy Days & Sundays said...

Clarrisa Kreider Mertz is Kate's sister. She has several web sites.
Claims to be a missionary, trying to get US Americans to adopt Ethiopian babies?

Has the Internal Revenue Service kept track of this Kreider family?

Something is just not right here. She also does a couple of hits for and against her sister, Kate, as if she feels everyone should pray for her.

Something in the water in the in ground well in the Kreider backyard? Looney tunes, 100%

Oh boy. My husband and I adopted two daughters from China. This grifter is going to give all international adoption a bad name.

This donation website is just disgusting. Many people of modest means successfully adopt from the US or abroad.

There are means tests required by states, US government, and any other governments involved. If someone is really broke and without solid financial prospects, they aren't allowed to adopt.

Hmmmmm . . . adding children to your family who you can't afford to raise. Where have we heard that before?

Also, 25,000 sounds really high to me. Even including travel to Ethiopia, 14-18,000 sounds more realistic. (much of the cost is legal fees, translation, and the travel to and stay(s) in the place you want to adopt from.

Also, US citizens who adopt children are entitled to up to 10,000 in tax credit. Any plans to reimburse your donors, Clairissa?

I have plenty more to say about how fishy this whole thing sounds if anyone wants to hear it.

barbee said...

This is as sick as the original Kreider twit taking a chance and adding 6 to the two they already couldn't afford. Hope the second go round isn't in the hopes of getting a show on tlc. It's lame enough for them to be interested.

Brummygirl said...

How true is this post from Clarissa Kreider?
Is this the sister Kate is in touch with? Never heard of her!
If true, then just another bad seed in the Kreider family. How many other skeletons exist?

go away gosselins said...

I am surprised that so many negative statement went through about Kate's sister wanting to adopt and asking for help. This is a common occurance. There are websites that cater to those who are trying to raise money for adoption. They sell coffee for Ethiopian families because that is where coffee orignated.

Here is a family who I found, who are doing the same thing, as proof of the common practice:

http://joeanddeanna.blogspot.com/

And the price is actually low. This is NOT a selfish thing to do! Kate's sister is actually helping someone else and does not deserve the mud you are flinging.

The obvious point that I see, as it pertains to the Gosselins, is that Kate, who is a celebrity, living in a mansion, could probably help her sister monetarily or by lending her "famous" name to fundraising. It is conspicuous that she hasn't done that. She never has earned money to help anyone, unless TLC sets it up for publicity. That is the sad point to the adoption story.

Grifters R Us said...

I am surprised that so many negative statement went through about Kate's sister wanting to adopt and asking for help.

8888888888888888888888888

Call it asking for help. Call it grifting. Call it begging. Kate also did this "in the name of the Lord." God will bless. Give us your money. Pass the basket for those love offerings. I don't care how many people "do it." If you don't have the money to adopt a child, you don't adopt the child and you don't set up a blog asking for donations. You get a job. You earn the money yourself. God works in mysterious ways, so ask Him to secure you a job so that you can financially afford this child.

Adoption costs are just the beginning. Every time the child needs diapers, food, clothing and the adoptive parents find themselves in need, are they going to put out an SOS on the blog? Where does it end?

pinkdiamond611 said...

I'm sorry, but if one can't afford to adopt a child with their own funds, they should not ask for donations. There are so many babies in the United States awaiting adoption. Become a Foster parent. These children need you. Oh, but then we wouldn't be able to be "trendy" like Madonna, or Angie and Brad, would we? I am sure Philly has plenty of kids who are in the need of homes.

The Real Rainy Days And Sundays said...

How true is this post from Clarissa Kreider?

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

It's Clairissa. There are links to her photography business in Lititz. I believe that she had a blog about adopting a child from China. I don't know whatever happened with that.

She doesn't say what agency she is going through, nor does she post a picture of the daughter she wants to adopt, nor does she say if all of the donations will be returned if sufficient financing isn't received.

This whole thing just doesn't smell right. In fact, I'm not even sure it's legal. Can't her church raise funds for this? Couldn't she apply for a loan? Something is "off" here...

888888888888888888888888888888888

She also doesn't deserve donations that are likely to be thrown her way, all in the name of God leading them to do so. It most certainly IS a selfish thing to do...using other people's money to adopt a child. It's grifting, plain and simple, and something stinks to High Heavens about it.

There are resources to go through to adopt. But, hey, if grifting worked for Kate, why not? What's next? Shopping around for a show? Calling TLC to find out if they'd be interested in filming the entire adoption process, going to Ethiopia, bringing the child home, the challenges of raising a special needs child, etc. etc.
That way, everything would be paid for. Betcha the wheels are turning.

This is not my post. This person is using the ID that I post under.

I have commented earlier about this, but apparently it never went through.

Please note that the writing style is not mine. I don't use question marks freely, nor do I spell "Clairissa" as "Clarrisa."

Tami said...

I admire those who make sacrifices and adopt kids. A Kreider is not willing to sacrifice. They figure why pay for it if the naive, sympathetic public will do it for you. I would have loved to adopt one or more children. We could not have afforded that. I am not the sort of person to ever think of begging others to do things I'm unable to afford though. I wonder how those girls were raised.

I have heard of financial aid for adoptions. I am always suspicious of these websites set up for begging. Always will be.

Amy2 said...

I am an adoptive parent of two international children. When needing financial help the first people adoptive parents generally turn to is family. Did Clarissa ask Kate and she said no, followed by "mine all mine".

bbeau said...

Re: Kate's sister begging for funds to adopt

This is just sad. The website is gofundme.com .... go figure

Its especially pathetic when people hide behind religion to get what they want. I am a christian and I understand those who have deep faith, but I believe these 2 girls hide behind religion.

They remind me of those tele-evangelists who beg for money and later are exposed as frauds who con innocent people into giving them money.

She uses god and religion in her post so many times it just sounds disingenuous.

here is one quote:

"So here's our donation page! Ready to watch God work:)"

Then she uses a bunch of proverbs and psalms at the end.

Sounds all very calculating to me.

dustilies said...

Amy2 wrote that a potential adoptive parent's first resort for financial support is family. ITA and it is telling that her own sister doesnt show up as a donor.

Other adopting families raise the money they need by selling off things they do not really need, like a second car, or by taking out a loan, and by cutting out luxuries like coffeehouse coffee, salon manipedis and cable tv. Taking a second job or freelancing are also common.

It really is striking that Clairissa is following the samepath as her sister in begging instead of working for the money to fund an intl adoption.

Adopting is no more and no less selfish than conceiving a child. It is the grifting that is appalling.

cali-girl said...

I just read the appeal for $$$$
on the gofundme.com site.

According to that page, the family needs $25,000. They have had $235 donated so far.

This is a odd post. The author, assumedly Kate's sister, right?, sounds like a teenager. She uses 5smiley faces throughout, says things like "along with our friend who is also adopting from Ethio" Ethio??? Who says that?

Also: "we enjoyed music and had Ethiopian food for dinner. I love lentils! :)"

and

"So cool how God arranged this!! :)"

and

"they are currently being loved on"

and

"We'd love to help all the kiddos at this orphanage in Ethiopia"
Orphans referred to as kiddos???

Here's some info I found about adopting from Ethiopia:

"Most of Ethiopia's estimated one million orphans have extended family members who, if they only had the money, Tewodros said, would care for the child. Here's where the idea of adoption as a last resort gets tricky: It costs $20 per month to support a child with a foster family in Ethiopia. More often than not, the foster family is one of the child's relatives. An American parent adopting a child through Better Future Adoption will spend between $14,170 - $18,170 in fees and travel costs, according to the Web site."

The point is that it might be better to leave the child with family members and send donations, like $20 a month, to the family.
I'm thinking of something like the Christian Children's Fund, etc.

Maybe because the child has special needs that would not be a possibility--to stay with relatives.

Anyway, just some thoughts. I never heard of gofundme--interesting concept!

Jaded said...

I really don't like people asking strangers to help them in their quest to adopt a child. I understand that adoption is a costly process, but I happen to know a couple who could not afford that route but sincerely longed for a baby of their own. They ended up adopting a baby boy through the Foster Care program. Yes, this child has some developmental delays because his mom took drugs during her pregnancy, but he truly needed a loving home.

I don't like the use of religious terms when seeking donations either. If God is truly who they follow and believe in, then perhaps they ought to trust that God will provide without them turning to beg from strangers. Second, what happens when you adopt the child and then can't afford to raise him/her? Will they keep begging for money then too?

why is okay to beg for money, if you cloak it in religious terms? Ugh.

ChurchMouse said...

So apparently "Kate Plus 8" is not on anytime soon? Anyone see it in the lineup? Is this the end?

Nova said...

Is this Clarissa the one sister who has been said to still be in Khate's life? The one who designed a necklace that Khate often wears?

If this person is really Khate's sister, and asking for money on the internet to adopt an asian child, it does seem very strange. I agree that if all of that is true, I wouldn't be surprised if the next step is for this woman to try to shop her 'story' to TLC.

Wonder how Khate would feel about a crossover show?

Save the Gosselin 8

ChurchMouse said...

Apparently there is now a pedophile tweeting Kate on Twitter.

http://smalltowngosselins.squarespace.com/

Is it someone just being a troll, pretending? Or is it an example of what many here have already expressed concerns about?

Either way, it's disturbing, to say the very least.

Closerfan said...

On Clarissa's website, she wants to adopt two little girls because they are being raised in the same house and they are "just like friends".

On another note, I was on Twitter earlier and noticed that BM is now a Jon Gosselin and Ellen Ross defender. She actually wrote in all caps to leave them alone, they would like their privacy (because she has the inside scoop).

chesterctymom said...

Read down and see what they would do with any "overage"...I guess Sister Krieder learned from the best...


A message from Clairissa Mertz

PLAN: Absolutely 100% of the money collected will go towards any and all expenses relating to the adoption process. It's not cheap! If God blesses us with an overage, the remaining funds will be used to cover our post-placement costs or personal needs for our daughter (clothing, bedroom furniture, school supplies, etc.) or will be donated to another Christian family's adoption or Christian organization that supports adoption/orphan care.

Sharla said...

I've only found potential future episodes listed on one website, churchmouse, and they have slipped to 6/6 with no episode information or episode name. There is nothing on the TLC website with scheduling information and a TV tracking website has them as not scheduled or future pending.

expat said...

It may have already been mentioned, but I just went over to the TLC site for the first time in forever, and there is nothing at all about Kate Plus 8 anywhere on their main page. It's wonderful! Obviously they are kicking her to the curb, and about time, too. My only concern is what sort of damage that horrible woman is going to do to the kids when she finally realizes that the ride is over.

Sharla said...

Apparently it wasn't noticed, but I stopped putting through the majority of the comments related to Clairissa's fundraising for an adoption earlier today. As long as the comments were somewhat related to Kate, that was one thing. The comments tended to get farther and farther off topic so I think the discussion has pretty much run its course.

Button Button said...

No More Kate+8!

I watched TLC last night, as I am curious about what Kody Brown and his Polygamous family are up to. Apparently they are no longer welcome in the State of Utah...

Anyway, TLC has some ads going on about the upcoming shows. Cake Boss, Quints By Surprise, even Toddlers and Tieras got a lot of attention. Not a single word or shot of any Gosselins was on.

Nothing...looks like the end may truly, truly, truly be very near.

WonderButton said...

Some links to check out about the recent court appearance:

http://pahomepage.com/search-fulltext?nxd_id=183457

Video of an interview coming out of district court. It's been 5 days today by my count (calendar days). Any news about a ruling on the 10K?

If you see the video, the therapist comes across as a very sincere person.

And stills from the day:
http://thetimes-tribune.com/news/gosselin-in-nepa-for-court-1.1145572#axzz1MZV6Ysq9

If you click on the upper photo to enlarge it, you can see that Kate's part is a hideous mess. It's all jagged and looks VERY wide. Is her hair really that damaged? Or has she lost her hair dresser allowance?

Swissmis said...

Early in the Gosselin series, they came out and said that after the twins were born, Jon was perfectly happy with just the two children. It was Kate who pushed for more.

Proud Grandma said...

I looked at the "interview" and there was a still photo of a document with her name and showing a Shillington Road address in Sinking Spring. What is the connection to Kate there, is that her UPS store?

Kate being "stalked" on Twitter by a pedophile according to radaronline. Isn't this one thing everyone has been worried about? Will she learn from this? I doubt it!

ROL has an article about her twitter stalker. And here is tlc's comment:
A spokesperson for TLC told us the cable net has no comment.

Is that a very 'telling' comment or what?

Aunt Chris said...

I would HOPE that Kate and TLC would not try to get publicity out of a pedophile/stalker situation, but I must admit that I am amused that it's being upstaged by Arnold's extra kid!

pinkdiamond611 said...

I am not a twitter "expert" by any means, but can't one control who may follow you on Twitter? And, how can you be "stalked" anyway? If you put stuff out there for all the world to see on Twitter, if somebody reads it, that is not stalking.

Has the "mansion" been sold yet? Thanks for the update!

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Not that I know of. It's not listed in the multi-list. Someone on here (who posts under multiple IDs) commented some time ago that throngs of out-of-state lookers were checking out the place on a regular basis because it was listed by a private New York real estate company.
That info was never verified.

tweetiegirl said...

Saw this statement on a blog post about the stalker situation:

"Kate Gosselin's own security team has taken over on her behalf and has banned GeorgeHarvey2 from accessing her Twitter account."

This makes it sound as if something very official was done that would take a team of professionals. sheesh... blocking someone from following you on twitter takes one click. You go to their profile and use the tools menu to click "block personsname" and voila, they are gone. You can then report them to twitter with just one extra click.

Here is the whole post:

Be nice to have quiet, etc. said...

I have not posted in a long time and now I write two posts.

We in the area did hear the Gosselin house was for sale and not from this site or any others but from neighbors who are in real estate. It is listed, privately, by some NY firm. You cannot access thru the web as we tried but understand if you want into the area or surrounding area or have horses, that this is the area for you.

That property is lovely but the last owners wanted out from under the maintenance and the taxes and he was a doctor or a dentist, can't remember and his wife wanted to be closer to a town and not so much solitude. That is what we heard at that time.

Sine the G family is there, it is a joke and not a quiet area. I don't know about out of town cars but I do know a realtor (sp) who takes people there but he will not talk about it. Seems like it's been on the mkt for over a year. Have no other info and this realtor is local but not from Wernersville but not far away.

Would like to see her take care of that property with her limited millions cause she would blow through it.

Thats all I know about the house being on the market and none of us know where she would move to or even if she bought anything depending on if she sells this big place with so much land. Would think she would stay in Pa so the kids could see their Dad but never know with her, she is a liar.

Berks Has Shoes! said...

Be Glad To Have Peace said..."Sine the G family is there, it is a joke and not a quiet area"

8888888888888888

Why is that? The kids are in school five days a week, Kate travels quite a bit, TLC seldom films there, and they planted trees so the house can't be seen from the street. I travel that road quite a bit, and I've never seen cars lined up, people taking photos, or kids running wild. It's always seems like a fairly quiet area to me.

One of the Hicks she dispises said...

Tired of the gosselin family, all of them, her, him, bodyguard,tups, twins, the rest of the grifters, everyone, just tired of reading or hearing about them.

Remember when you turned on TLC and you saw re run after rerun of shows of the g family? No more, can't find them for finding a mouse with cheese and peanut butter. Gone, really gone.

Bet it is over and why is she twitter twating again? To tell 15 yrs olds to finish their homework?

She got herself a stalker? More lies to get publicity is all it is, no one wants her, but the sickies want to get close to those kids. She made is that way and Jon too.

Get rid of that show and everyone will go away and she can go back to being a brunette before she goes bald. No, she isn't a pretty woman, we saw her outside court the other day, what a nose up in the air thing she thinks she is, better than us who stood around to watch her circus act. More yelled for Steve to turn around than her.

No limo for the court date?

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

I remember the good ol' days when Kate thought she had it made. Barbara Walters claiming on TV that Kate "will be a star". Guaranteed. Kate sitting on the couch droning on about how being on TV is so natural to her. She does, afterall, have the "gift of the gab". Kate's huge ego telling the world that her "career" is now being on TV - forget the grunt work. She's put that behind her. She's Hollywood bound. ET, here she comes. Move over girls. The stah has arrived. Oh, those were the days, my friends.

Just like we predicted, her tweeting got her in to big trouble. She couldn't keep her big trap shut. No boundaries. Her gift of the gab turns out to be a curse. Her yapper is her undoing.

She got rich by not having to be a real actor on TV. She just got to be herself. Lucky break. No acting experience required. Just be Kate. People will eat it up. Her bitchiness was unique and quite refreshing. TLC found a new slant on something. The bitch factor was profitable. Better use it before someone else does.

It got her in the end. The very thing she was cashing in on got her in the end.

If you had those 6 kids on purpose, Kate, so that you could cash in, you are now suffering from what is commonly referred to as an incorrect motive in life. Nothing good EVER comes out of that kind of sh*t.

She would milk any encounter with a pedophile for all it was worth, she would exploit the heck out of it as her goal seems to be stay infront of the camera at all costs. A different twist, the pedophile ends up being the one exploited, so k8 can drag out her few minutes of fame a little longer.

barbee said...

she apparently never heard the phrase 'be careful what you wish for' when she wished for HOM's. Now they are no longer cute toddlers and with her mindset, she's stuck with them. she is so ignorant she wouldn't even see the danger she was placing them in. This is proven by her having 'security', FOR HER, whether she is traveling or at home. And the 'security' leaves the kids at home with young nannies when she travels WITH 'security'.

As far as any further entertainment career looming in her future, WTF? WHO would WANT her, for WHAT? She can't act, can barely talk (and what she says and writes makes little to no sense), has no personality, is uninteresting, is so fake she is a joke on the 'beauty' scene, and if you watch ANYONE on DWTS this 'season' (loving using that word around her, altho not sure if she bitched about season or episode, but you know what I mean), anyway, on DWTS this season EVERYONE is dancing beautifully and she NEVER, not once, (count it, one) showed any rhythm or had any gracefulness evident in her routines. Still laughing at memories of how the makeup/hair/costume people stuck it to her week after week for ALL what of them, 4? actually performing (not sure of that #, but don't care enough to go check). Whatever the # was, it was that many tooooo many!

And isn't it just typical of her, thank HER people for having HER back WITHOUT a thought of her kids. What a ... fill in your own word for her, the ones I'm thinking I don't say or write.

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

If the report that it is for sale would be true, the media would have grabbed that story so fast and ran with it. Someone would have leaked it. The market price has declined so much that she'd be a fool to sell it right now. She paid $1.2 million for it; she'd be lucky to get $600,000 for it if she sold it now. You don't take that kind of a loss in real estate. You wait until property value goes back up.

I think that George Harvey 2 is a poser! I don't beleive this whole thing.. What would get the Enquirer's, Globe etc.. attention more than a pedophile tweeting Kate and stalking her children? Just think about it, why would a pedophile admit that they are one and that they are really watching you and your children? Come on, really???

Sunrise, Sunset said...

###########

The assessed value is not the fair market value. The assessed value is the valuation placed on a property by the public tax assessor for purposes of taxation. The fair market value of her property is $600,000, which is the price she could get from a buyer who would be willing to pay that amount. It's the "going rate" in that area for that property, based on comps within the area. It is the highest price estimated in terms of money which the property will bring if put on the market.

She needs to sit on that house until the real estate market improves. Now is not the time to sell.

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

What is $10,000 to a rich nobody like Kate? A drop in the bucket. If I was worth, say 4.5 million, would I care about $10,000? Probably not. It's not like it's $100,000. If I wanted to maintain my image for future TV gigs I would pay the bill and make it go away. Kate the skinflint. I don't think the whole lawsuit thing was to keep herself in the media. It's because she is CHEAP. Always has been. Wonder when she will start taking some of her slut clothes in to the consignment shop.

Her attorney filed a NOTICE OF APPEAL, which starts the appeal process. She doesn't have to go through with the appeal if her attorney decides that she really has no chance of winning. Filing a timely notice of appeal just guarantees her the right to an appeal should her attorney find that the judge may overturn the verdict.

It's going to cost her substantial fees to her attorney, plus court costs, to keep this thing going.

Tamara said...

In reference to pedophiles preying on the kids, I don't see it as being very likely. Not because their parents do a good job of protecting them, but because they are high risk targets. Between being famous and easily recognizable, each child is part of a large family, so t hey are rarely isolated from others whom they may tell about any abuse. Too much risk, work, an hassle for most pedophiles. Hope this makes sense.

Julianna said...

"Too much risk, work, an hassle for most pedophiles. Hope this makes sense."

88888888888888888

I disagree. If a pedophile sees a kid he "wants," he takes him/her. There is no logic involved - he doesn't consider any kind of risk or hassle. The person is so obsessed with that child that risk has nothing to do with it. In fact, if there is risk or "work," it's all the more challenging. The fact that this is a high-profile family may be even more of an incentive to a pedophile who, in his twisted mind, may see this as some kind of achievement.

Throughout history, criminals have been attracted to famous persons. Booth, before he shot Lincoln, made the statement that when he leaves the stage, he will be the most famous man in America. The Lindbergh baby was the son of a famous American, but that didn't stop someone from kidnapping and murdering him.

You're assuming that the pedophile wouldn't abuse a child because the child is part of a large family and would tell of the abuse. Unfortunately, the pedophile sees to it that the child doesn't live to tell anyone.

alyssa said...

Deeply disturbed people do not care how high profile the child they are targeting is.They will make their plan and go for it.Also,because there are so many of them,snatching one without being quickly noticed might not be so hard.Is it really worth the risk?

Vanessa said...

Just because it's not a "good time" to sell, doesn't mean she won't HAVE to sell before she sees the market recover. How many people have had to sell their homes for less than what they owe? How many people have LOST their homes? People caught living BEYOND THEIR MEANS, not saving, not thinking of tomorrow have learned a very hard lesson.

$$$$$$$$

Let's hope the market recovers in the next few years. With her net worth, and netting a million a year after taxes, she certainly can afford to hang on to that property for a few years. She has a mortgage of what, $60,000 a year. What she's making from those episodes and what she has stashed away certainly is going to cover the mortgage payments for the next few years.

NJMom said...

When is the show scheduled to air again? First I saw May 30, then it was June, and now I'm not even sure it is on the schedule. It appears episodes have been filmed but the series hasn't even been mentioned for the summer series as it was last year. Are they taking a long hiatus again? It can't be good news for Kate.

Rhiannon said...

Have to chime in on the unsavory subject of pedophiles and potential risk to the Gosselin children (or any children who are in the public eye):

Pedophiles are not governed by logic. The deeper their sickness, the less you can presume they will behave "logically." The fact that a person who appears to be a pedophile has already opening friended Kate on Twitter ought to tell everyone that.

I am a private citizen. My son is not in the public eye. Nevertheless, I still worry for his safety from a variety of sources, including sick individuals. If my son was a child actor or on a television show of any kind, I would most definitely step up my security for him. The fact that Kate goes out with a "bodyguard" but her children do not, tells you where her priorities are.

Knowing that Kate has left town - heck, even the country! - and left those children in the care of very young nannies, is a worrying scenario. It would be much safer if she left them in the care of Jon and Ellen.

fidosmommy said...

Right, Vanessa.

The people along the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers are not the only people with houses underwater. Kate is definitely there. She got caught up in the
bigger-is-better craze and will now have to deal with it. It's sad, but it was also preventable.

If she does sell, there's another broken promise to the kids. She told them this was their "forever house".

In OK! magazine, pic of Kate in her Derby get up and this write up:

".........she and bodyguard Steve Neild hit the STYLE ICON 2011 luxury gifting suite. Steve took pics as Kate gushed, "I have him trained well".

I guess since ratings are down and interest has waned, that she is finally going to admit that they have had an affair for years now.

Tamara said...

The kids being on tv, and being shown in their underwear and in the bathroom, is never what has worried me. The fact that they've been taught to treat near strangers as beloved family members, and that they are desperate for adult attention and affection is what worries me. That and the fact that it is obvious that their mother doesn't listen to them at all.

child advocate by trade said...

Pedaphiles are not just those people listed on the Sex Offender's Listings.

Pedaphiles are in your family, they like to groom the child, have the child trust them, sit on their lap, tell them stories. Anything to become the "favorite" person who is around the child or children.

Pedaphiles are not always strangers and that is my point.

Beware of anyone, even a teenage babysitter who gets too comfortable with your child. Always be aware of where your child goes, how familiar they are with the neighbors.

Kate & Jon have put those kids on film footage that may last forever, who knows.

Are all the film crews holding a background check from all over the US? Is Kate insisting on that before filming? Not likely, she thinks all the camera crews are like "daddy" well she is a horrendous mother to begin with but to leave her children with babysitters while she travels to Kentucky of even her 2 day jaunts with Steve are suspicious to me, but then I'm just a mother.

Strangers are dangerous? So are family members or neighbors or as we are learning even those we entrust with our children's education and they are not always men.

When children are too isolated, they often live in a bubble and think the whole world is safe unless they also are being told to stay away from everyone. One extreme to another.

The parent has the responsibility of knowing who the people are that work with their children, whether it is a make up artist, friendly craft service food server or a very well known celebrity.

Children are not pets and you let someone else take care of them while you are out of town.

Annie Barth said...

Tamara said.....have you ever heard of the famous being kidnapped and not for a ransom or the house full of people and still a child is missing, well it happens everyday in these United States of America.

Sometimes the pedaphile is an uncle, cousin, family member or camera crew member too.

One never knows and one can only watch with 2 eyes.

Never liked Steve's replacement of Jon and his familiarity with the little girls, nope never did and still don't.

Momof2 said...

...and FYI....I helped a young lady put a pedophile behind bars last year and trust me...pedophiles don't advertise who they are...they go to extremes to hide their behavior. They DO NOT open a traceable twitter account and then make inappropriate comments.

If this whole thing *really* happened, any mother in their right mind would close up their twitter account immediately and call it a day. Kate knows there's no threat and there never was, that's why she is still twittering away like a fool.

Now would you not think that any normal and I stress the word "normal" mother afraid for her children, would nix the twittering for their safety's sake, whether it be a prank or not?
No.. (doing a Kate answering my own question) all Kate cares about is her newly founded teenage fans, who one of them, for all she knows, could be the pedophile.
As parents and grandparents, we try to teach our children the dangers of the internet. There is no face to verify who you are speaking to and even then, you do not know their background.
Kate may not let her children chat on the web, but she does enough damage on her own, leaking details of where they will be etc.
Having exposed those children for seven years is enough, time to call a halt to all this nonsense. I said from the very beginning, that she was open to stalkers etc. Fans are some of the worst stalkers around. They like to take on the persona of their idol, dress like them, live their life etc.
No wonder T.L.C. gave Kate Steve, she needs to be protected from herself, dumb bunny!!! Make that dumb goose!!!

I don't know. Joey Fatone had to have a garage sale and downsize. He was once a bigger "stah" than she ever was, but when his popularity went down I guess he could no longer afford to live lavishly. He's not the only one forced to downsize.

barbee said...

Unless tlc 'is' as stupid as I think they are (backing her for so long is one act of stupidity on their part), they should know better than to have her OFF the schedule for so long. The last two long breaks did her no favors in the ratings area. It was a case of out of sight out of mind!

The whole 'stalker' storyline (pun intended) is so tranparent. She was twitting or tweeting or just plain blathering non-stop for so long and the stalker was one of few not from her usual flock of sheep that was allowed to remain on with the ridiculous posts. She knew it was a scam and there was nothing to worry about and liked the excitement it created among the people who are concerned for and about the kids. That being said, that is NOT to say that there is nothing to worry about re the kids and dangerous people. HOW MANY times has the tweeting twit said that the kids glom onto ANY AND EVERY one that comes into the house for any reason, legitimate known guest OR complete, absolute, total strangers there to do work. Those kids are so starved for attention and affection that they will go to ANYONE that acknowledges them. DANGEROUS when they are out and about OR in their own home, either of which place their mother figure is 9 times out of 10 not paying attention to them or even in the same room with them.

SHE doesn't really want them except for when they are working for HER $$$$$$, but she is too damn selfish, arrogant, obnoxious and stupid to let Jon have them more (like when she is gallavanting on yet another trip with HER security). Wouldn't you think the 'security detail' would be there for the kids, who are the ones most at risk and least able to protect themselves? Wouldn't the average mother realize that when out with 8 kids (especially with the way the are allowed to run around wild as shown in several stores)it would be very easy for one to get snatched? Oh, wait, we're not talking your average mother, we're talking fame hungry, attention grubbing, untalented 'zzzzlist' nobody.

It is easy to see why so many of the kids are underdeveloped in so many areas, they are being raised by someone in the same boat, someone who has never gotten out of her teenage stage.

My biggest wonder is HOW in the hell can the judges in PA be so unaware of what is going on with those kids with all the media attention they have garnered over the past 2-3 years? WHAT does it take to get them to see that she has no business being main care giver (WHAT A LAUGH) for those 8 kids when they have a father who could and would do a much better job with them? (and the kids would LOVE IT!)

Can't she please be gone so my blood pressure goes back to normal, my acid reflux disappears and the mere mention of the name Kate (not even meaning HER) doesn't make me go ballistic!!!!!!

_________________________________



It should worry all of us. It's fodder for pedophiles. It's putting kids out there for all the wrong reasons. It's a violation of the kids' privacy. These kids are TOLD what to do. They don't give their permission to be filmed half-naked. Would we parents think it's amusing if a crew member shoved cameras into our faces when we were in the bathroom?

You'd let your child alone in the bathroom with a crew member who had not had a background check done on him/her? That's exactly what happened, and not just one time. On one episode, the lights were turned out, the door was closed, one of the boy tups was left sitting on the toddler potty seat and the only person in the room was a crew member.

I can't imagine too many parents who wouldn't be concerned about that. Paul Petersen was worried enough about it that it was brought up in testimony at the PA hearings. State legislators are worried enough about it that they have addressed this issue at hearings, proposing that the new bills include background checks on crew members or anyone who comes in contact with children on television. They know that kids being shown on the potty, in stages of undress is unacceptable as any form of entertainment.

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

There has been so much speculation as to why Kate has a bodyguard. I think that in the beginning, she hated the fans harassing her so she needed protection from them. Okay I get that. I also think that she is very scared of the 'haters' or her non-fans. Well, I guess I fall under that category but I am certainly not a violent person. In fact, if I saw her in person, I would have a hard time screaming something nasty at her like, "go take care of your kids you grifter. Hollywood has no use for you". I've fantasized about doing it at times but that's just not my style. I would hope (and I believe just based on what I read on here) that most of us on this site have more class than that. I have never yet read a post where someone has actually seen her in person and screamed something nasty to her and then reported back to GWOP. So is the protection part of her OCD, ie. being completely fearful of things that go bump in the night? I think so. I must say, it would be awful to know that so many strangers in the world hated you. It's just mindboggling to me that given the criticism of having the useless boobyguard 24/7, she doesn't relent. I guess that is all part of the "I never give up and I will do the complete opposite of what my detractors want" part of Kate that we despise so much.

Sharla said...

To clarify, just because Kate had an alleged pedophile on her twitter does not make all pedophile conversation on topic. It's on topic to discuss what that person said or did but not to wander into an argument about pedophiles in general or the guy in the next county who my second cousin twice removed knew and what he did. I rejected several of those. Arguing about what general pedophiles do isn't why the blog is here.

Kate's hair part is on topic. What teens are doing and whether a "proper" zig zag part begins where is not why I'm here at least. My reaction was do you really, really want to argue about zig zag parts? Really?

I hope that helps clarify things. The blog is about the Gosselins and not about the general fields that they touch upon.

We do have an unmoderated free discussion blog where all such things may be talked out as long as the parties wish.

In reference to Collin being left on the potty alone in the dark with the camera man and sound guy, I could swear that he and the potty were in the boys bedroom, by the door. He couldn't go before he was put down for a nap, so she left him sitting there. Anyone remember what episode this was?

"...they don’t know how television works, how they will be manipulated to play the roles of hero and villain and how they will be edited out of context to fill the roles producers pick for them. You may think you’re the smart, sexy one, only to see yourself portrayed as a calculating bitch when the show airs. That’s why so many winners suffer a type of post-traumatic stress syndrome."

That is how I remember it too. I dont know names of episodes, but it was in the bedroom by the door. I do recall that Kate was pretty pissed off at the baby for not peeing on command and left him sitting there, in the dark, slamming the door behind her with some nasty words for him.

I felt so bad for that baby, sitting there in the dark with his little pants down around his ankles all on his own.

I do recall thinking that the tups didnt seem to be ALLOWED to use the bathroom. Maybe not enough room in there for the production crew. (But the driveway? Really Kate?)

That episode, when she was so angry at the boys for not peeing on cue, made me start thinking of her as an abusive parent. And it was downhill from there.

Willow #1 said...

My opinion is that Khate has a bodyguard because it makes her look and feel important. Also, if she was alone, she would have to do "everything" for herself. JMO though. I agree totally that in the beginning it was because she didn't want the "masses" to be in her air space. That's how Khate rolls ya know.

Mom In Lancaster County said...

I felt so bad for that baby, sitting there in the dark with his little pants down around his ankles all on his own.

Regardless if it was in the bathroom, bedroom, downstairs family room, or laundry room, the point is that he was left there alone in the dark with a crew member. I also remember when, after they had moved to the new house, Kate was downstairs attacking the refrigerator and Jon was outside. A crew member was upstairs, filming IN THE BATHROOM.

catfan said...

I had a chuckle while watching TMZ TV yesterday (19-May-11). They had a bit about the Mom who fake injected her child with Botox and compared her to other parents who exploited their kids for money. The comparison parents were Joe Jackson, Kate Gosselin and Michael Lohan. Kate seems to like being on top - too bad for her that's the equivalent of being on the top of a steaming pile of manure.

Mel said...

I understand that she wants a bodyguard because in her twisted mind it makes her feel like she's the "stah".

What I don't understand is the instant freak out when she's in a group of people. Is it because she's such a control freak? And can't control EVERY little thing that's happening when there's more than just children and adults over whom she has control??

Is she claustrophobic? Do crowds feel to her like they're closing her in?

Reminds me of my DIL, who is a terrible control freak. She HATES being at my house because then she's not in control of every single thing that is happening.

Whaddya'll think? There's something going on there, but I can't put my finger on it.

Rhiannon said...

"The comparison parents were Joe Jackson, Kate Gosselin and Michael Lohan."

That is terrible company to be lumped in with! Joe Jackson - the guy who frightened his son so badly, scarred him so badly during his youth, that Michael underwent numerous surgeries to erase any trace of his own father's looks? The guy who announced the formation of a new record company during a public ceremony to grieve Michael Jackson's death?

That's who Kate is being lumped with?

Her 'freak outs' when people appear on 'her' scene almost seem to be to 'call attention' to her, like they don't seem to recognize her, so she starts her screeching and then, voila, they peg the noise and the attention hog making it. If you notice in the pics at The Derby in the dining room, NO ONE is looking at her, even with the cameras. That was a planned situation, she was told to go into the room full of people, stand here and have pics taken. At the Philadelphia museumy type place, people sort of took her unawares so she pulled the shrieky freaky bit.

I think Kate needs Steve around for travel because she really isn't that intelligent. I don't think she can successfully manage on her own through airports, security, baggage, etc. She may be cunning as a fox in some areas, but smart, she isn't. I don't think she has an assistant helping her with bills, travel arrangements, etc., that falls somewhere between Steve and TLC staffers for the time being. Lots of well known people travel through airports and major cities and are able to grab cabs to hotels, restaurants and walk to where they need to be. Kate is lazy - that why she has her kids earning her living, not the other way around. Even Paul McCarthy travels NYC w/o assistance. She is probably sleeping w/ Steve and has been for years, maybe Gina is happy being set financially for now with her boys and not having to deal with a public divorce until Kate is done with in the media (which is just about here now). Kate is done, no paps are following, no grocery store runs, bus stops, tanning, manicures. She was the joke of the moment at the Kentucky Derby. I hardly post anymore, just check in once in a while for amusement. She's toast. Hopefully the kids will get a summer vacation and not have to work all summer at "family memory making" vacations. LOL

Hopefully the rumors of Jon getting a new home are true, the kids might have a back yard they can use, have a campfire with dad. The would be just as happy with a $500 pool and dad's attention and a built in at Kate's. For all those that are sure Jon doesn't pay child support, I doubt he would get a mortgage if he were a deadbeat dad. He should pay based on his current income, not what Kate thinks she needs to maintain her high life.
