The kids, yes, the kids, I do wonder just how much abuse they did take,............

Personally, I am much more concerned about their welfare once Katie Irene's money tree stops producing. In Kate-think, it's ALWAYS someone else's fault, and given their proximity, the kids are going to get blamed big-time. It really scares me.
**************
Actually, I was responding to that comment. What I said was: "I do not think that the past tense is appropriate, if you get my drift."

I agree with you. If this is how she behaves in front of a camera, I shudder to think of how she behaves when the cameras are off. As for her behavior when the show ends, I agree, the thought is frightening.

I'm going to think positively and hope that once the show ends, Kart won't need the little money makers around. She will allow them to spend more time with their father and other family members. She stated she was "bored" on a school field trip. The simply ordinary "bores" her. But most of us know that life is mostly simply ordinary and we relish every second.

Odd, too, that after devoting an entire episode to establishing how hard K8G had to work to get the 'fridge clean, she quickly replaced it with a new refrigerator.

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
Don't you think that was the whole point of all the complaining! I am sure she was looking for some manufacturer to say....Hey Kate, please take one of our refridgerators....after all, you deserve it!!

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

You could be right about her motives, however, the new refrig was not donated by the manufacturer - bought and paid for by TLC.

Amy too said...

Yes, she has successfully screwed up her 8 kids, all by herself. Her children are no happier than she was as a child.

If we ever hear about Kate's parents and how they treated those 5 kids, they we may know why she did what she did with having the tups, the pursuing of everything from clothes to a big blue bus to a TV show. Why she was so determined to get that house and all the land.

Yes, I will always think she and Steve have been lovers. Otherwise she would be dating, she wants to be seen. She lives for that, being dressed up and having photos taken.

It is coming to an end with K8 but I don't think, for some reason, that we have seen the end of it.

If she is used in the right way, on TV, she could draw viewers, just what is the "way to do it"....a freak show like Dr Drew's Rehab for one.

No one has more confidence than Kate has. She would go on Dr. Drew, after her show tanks and be there to adjust to being on her own trying to make a living for her children, sounds good, more tears for Sister Kate.

============
You are so right. Kids grow up so fast and one day when they are grown we say that we'd give anything to have that time back again. We wish that our kids would still be young enough to go on one more field trip, no matter how "boring" we may have thought it was at that time.
Kate doesn't get it.

So it would seem that Kate got paid in refrigerator for cleaning up a fake mess in a clean refrigerator. Hmmmm. Now there's the kind of plot that would draw me into the viewing audience!

Perhaps if she scrubbed the bathtub her maid just cleaned, TLC would pay her in sauna/spa bath. Just a thought there for you, Kate.

Anyway, do you suppose TLC told her that some icky boy moving guy
had touched the inside of her refrigerator with his bare hands, and that set her off in a frenzy of
scrubbies and bleach water? She was going at it like it was poisoned.

Liz said...

just saw on Kate's twitter she AND Jamie are doing interviews about the show...I guess Jamie's going to be a regular now?

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

I really don't think it's fair to judge Kate's parents and blame them for this whole mess. It may very well be that Kate is the reason and ONLY REASON Kate turned out the way she did.


"No one has more confidence than Kate has."

@@@@@@@@@@@@@

I respectfully disagree with this. Totally. In fact, I think the converse is true. Kate is not confident, but rather Kate is insecure and puts on a facade of being self-assured. I'd venture to say that many of her actions, such as calling attention to herself, putting herself first, bragging about her pool and material possessions came about because of this insecurity. It was the need to not only keep up with the Joneses, but to surpass them.

Confident Kate? No way!

fidosmommy said...

If Jamie is a regular now, I wonder what the dynamic will be.
Does TLC want more drama to replace the drama between Jon and Kate? Will Jamie be Kate's lackey
or will she be Kate's equal? Will Jamie show Kate the way to become kinder and gentler? Will Kate become jealous of Jamie's new marriage and strike out to discover the man on her bucket list?

Stay tuned for further developments in this drama "As the Universe Turns in Ghettoville", brought to you by Target and
RagTagMag.

I'm not sure anyone here knows exactly what Kate's life was like as a young child, unless they were there during her formative years. It was reported that when Dr. Lafair wanted to discuss Kate's childhood, Kate refused to do so. I think that's one area she just won't discuss. Why? It remains a mystery. Was she really unhappy, or is this her justification for turning on her parents and blaming them for everything that went wrong in her life?

Her siblings seem not to have been irreparably damaged by an unhappy childhood, so obviously all of the children weren't miserable when growing up.

Annie said...

I dont think anyone is to blame for Kates behavior except for Kate. My mother was abusing but I turned out ok. I did have to work to become ok. I have had to talk to a psychologist. I had to seek out the help. They psychologist could not help me unless I wanted it.

Bottom line is Kate is responsible for who she is today. She is an adult who can make her own choices. If her child hood was messed up or she has a mental illness then she could seek help. She has the insurance and money to pay for the treatment. But, she refuses to get help. She continues to spiral out of control. I wonder what it will be like when she finally hits rock bottom.

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

If you watch earlier episodes with her BFF on, Kate bossed her around pretty good and Jamie knew her place. She is very servile to Kate. That is the obvious dynamic and must be that way if they are to remain friends. I recall the organizing episode in the mansion basement and BFF just did whatever she was told to by the queen bee. BFF knows the wrath of Kate and wouldn't dream of uttering words on camera in case it steals the spotlight from the stah...
I would bet TLC flew BFF out to the mansion this weekend to do the interviews if that whole tweet thing is true about her being with Kate this weekend. They must be hanging this morning, the two of them.

I also read that Kate was playing her famous bananagram charade with the twins on Friday night and telling her followers how funny her kids were. I wonder if she puts her wine in a coffee mug while she plays with them. I would bet she sure does. How boring for Kate to have to be sober to play bananagrams on a lonely Friday night. Much more fun to play loopy bananagrams while she is twitting to her ardent followers.

"She stated she was "bored" on a school field trip. The simply ordinary "bores" her. But most of us know that life is mostly simply ordinary and we relish every second."

Sure, the field trip was not being filmed by TLC, and she wasn't getting paid for it, and she wasn't the center of attention. And it was probably a trip to some sort of educational site, instead of a beach in Hawaii or Australia, or a trip to Alaska. I'm sure it was very boring. Poor Kate.

dustilies said...

Thanks, NoRubberGloves, for the inside info on the domestic habits of the rich.

At the time, I thought the house looked awfully clean--but both Jon and Kate complained in a couch interview that there was a layer of grime (or grit, or something) all over everything. Gee, could this have been manufactured drama?

I do think KG was trying to embarass the people who sold the house to them. Who knows why. I have long wondered if the doc's wife didn't plant the mouse droppings just to freak KG out (they must have met at the closing).

But it also makes sense that the TLC producers would order some areas left unclean just to see what would happen.

I never did see ANY mold in that refrigerator. I've been a licensed food service health inspector, and I personally would have had no problem chilling closed containers of food and drink in that fridge the first day, even IF there were traces of mold in the crevices of the lining.

Nurses learn about infection control, right? KG seems like an 11 year-old girl who only hears the "eww gross--mold and bacteria" part, not the routes by which they are passed from person to person, or surface to food to person.

It was a nature hike, and Kate really isn't a nature girl.

karma said...

Kate had bet get used to boring, ordinary, dull. Welcome back to the world, dope. Driving kids to and from soccer games and practices, birthday parties, friends' homes (if they're allowed to have any)...that's mommy duty. There's the money you get to shell out for sports teams, class trips (over $1000 to send my 8th grader to DC with her class), school clothes, casuak clothes, dress clothes and the matching shoes. Good luck with that, cheapskate. You'll have to cut down on all the servants asTLC bails on you and will have to care for your kids for the first time ever. I fee so sorry for those kids as you decompensate. Good thing Jon has his act together do the kids get a break from your nonsense. And I'll bet your kids fine spending time with you boring, dull, scary, and hellish.

Annie said...

Learning about Kate's childhood, which her former boyfriend until she was 21 when they broke up could sure tell us about the Kreider family as Kate lived in his house for 3 years.

Call me old fashioned, but my daughter leaves my house at 18 to go to school an hour or so away, she will be coming back home to her own home and room at night, not living in some boy's house, sleeping in his bedroom when the parents are asleep? Nope.

still think if we know about the childhood of La Queen, we will learn about how she has some of the ability to grift they way she did.

Did she pass the collection all the time and got use to accepting money? What?

No way could I accept all those freebie then sell them for money, no way. I couldn't sleep at night, no way.

Annie said...

Just found this web site interview with our Kate:

Interesting too!

Rhiannon said...

I doubt we'll ever know what Kate's childhood was really like, nor does it matter. As others have pointed out, at some point a person must accept responsibility for their actions because they are now an adult.

We cannot choose our beginning, but we can certainly make choices once we are out on our own, working, earning money, married, etc.

We saw that Kate's brother seemed to turn out pretty decently, married a lovely kind woman, and gave generously of his time to help out his sister and brother-in-law. He had the same parents as Kate.

I think she was born with something unnatural about her. She's missing something -- the ability to love anyone but herself, the ability to feel empathy, compassion. The ability to socialize, be polite to others, etc. I don't really care what her childhood was like - but from what is know, she seemed to have a fairly decent one.

This Jamie character is another weirdness about Kate. Doesn't she live in another state? Doesn't she have children of her own? How can she come out to visit Kate so often? As a mom myself, I don't have the opportunity (nor the desire) to leave my kids to fly out to spend time with a friend, several times a year. When I take a week off, it's to spend time with my kids either at home or on a family vacation.

What's the deal with this Jamie? I'm guessing she's a paid friend, because we all know Kate doesn't have any real ones left.

______________________

It'd be nice if she could just spend time & be "present" with her children when doing so, not tweeting. but then that's always been too much to hope for with k8, it's sad, those kids will never experience having a truly great mom who's there for them, only the charlatan they're stuck with. It's sad, but then that's k8, pathetic, sad & sick, so very, very sick.

Aunt Chris said...

Regarding the GH article - she says she wants to raise 8 individuals. Might I suggest she start by treating them as such now?


And wouldn't you LOVE to see how she dressed for the 3rd grade pool party?

*****8

They met in a class for parents of multiples, IIRC. They formed a friendship there. Jamie and her then-husband moved to Michigan.

We never, ever heard about Jamie or their friendship until well into the Jon and Kate episodes. In fact, it may have been after the divorce, but I am not sure.

Jamie does not have custody of her children. Her ex-husband does. Jamie is now remarried, living in Michigan with her physician husband. No word about whether he has children of his own or not.

Jamie came down one summer to help
Kate take care of the children. There was a pap photo of Jamie out in the driveway one day, grabbing Collin (I think) roughly by the arm, and Aaden was crying off to the side. That led to cries that Jamie was not a good person to have around children because she disciplined them so roughly. It came right on the heels of Kate smacking Leah for blowing the whistle, and the connection was made between two women who had no patience with children. Of course all we saw was the end result, and don't know the rest of the story.
Still, it set some teeth on edge about Jamie.

She has accompanied the family on trips (Philadelphia for one) and
often wears clothing very similar to what Kate is wearing. There is a photo of the two of them sitting on Kate's front porch both wearing
almost identical black dresses. They have nearly identical white shorts, wear their hair in similar styles, etc. There were photos of them together in strange posings -
one with Jamie sitting on Kate's lap, one with both of them sharing a pillow... and then there was the FaceBook page that showed Jamie in Kate's bedroom or bathroom putting on her make up and wearing what looked like Kate's robe. Kate told Mady and Cara in NC that Jamie shared her bed with her when Jamie visited.

It has all led to speculation about who Jamie is to Kate. Is she someone being used, is she like a sister, is she a best friend like you have when you are
a 'tween, is she something else?

The fact is, we don't know who Jamie is. All we have is what we have seen (or read about) from the episodes and that FB page. We interpret it as it makes sense to us. And we know that Kate depends on her a lot. Maybe that goes both ways, but I'm inclined to think Kate controls the dynamics
between them and uses it for her own best interests.

fidosmommy said...

Also, Jamie and Kate have similar
diamond necklaces. Kate sometimes wears one, sometimes two. It seems when Jamie arrives in PA, Kate only wears one and sure enough, Jamie is wearing one too.

No clue here about the significance of that. Could mean just about anything, but it sure does raise questions.

barbee said...

Rhiannon, where's the barf bag to go with that article? It's surprising that she can get those words out of her mouth!

She wishes she had more time with the kids... this from the woman who 'CHOSE' to leave them every chance she got to travel with her BG/BF.

Talk about the 'yuckiness' of anything, to use her own word from the story (and THAT is just what it is, a STORY)!

O-Hi-O said...

"Regarding the GH article - she says she wants to raise 8 individuals. Might I suggest she start by treating them as such now?"

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


Including allowing them to DRESS as individuals.

"Individuals," yeah sure. So long as they match K8G, but match in a way that allows HER to ALWAYS be in charge, always be RIGHT.

Those kids are caught in the same impossible emotional bind as Jon was: you can be an 'individual' so long as you are immediately and absolutely compliant with Queen K8G's demands at all times.

BUT your reward for being so compliant is that she treats you like a buffoon and criticizes your every move (even breathing).

It's a classic no win situation for ANYONE involved with the likes of Kate Gosselin.

"Individuals." Yeah, right.

barbee said...

Don't know where I commented on this, but apparently not here. Why is it that kate finds every day things to be boring but feels WE should be interested in watching her kids do everyday things and celebrating their birthdays (where they are actually doing nothing out of the ordinary). Especially since she has dominated the camera since the name change for the garbage she calls a show (i.e., the filmage of HER career, I'd be embarrassed to call whatever that is a career).

O-Hi-O said...

EXCELLENT question.

Her kids are no cuter than our own, and K8G's harder to tolerate than anyone's Craziest Aunt Lulu at the family get togethers.

Kate is the dull one said...

Those poor gosselin kids are boring and dull unless they manage to finagle a trip for their unappreciable mom. Then she steals all the attention from them and acts like she's either fourteen years old or high as a kite. Hey, Kate, we think YOU are boring and dull and more miserable than poison ivy. Your show is over. Get used to being bored, you stupid stupid woman

Just My Few Canadian Cents said...

That is shameful that Kate referred to her kids' school trip on twitter as 'dull.'
I'd be embarrassed to face my kids' school if I was caught saying that.
Anyone who has been on such school trips knows the fun is in spending quality time with your children. I guess Kate really doesn't know how to have fun with her kids. No wonder she was bored. So sad.

hannie said...

I feel bad for the kids if TLC makes them flim during summer. Instead, of flimming they should be having fun with friends, visiting thier dad, going to a local pool/waterpark and sextuplets should have worksheets to do to not forgot what they learned. Now, we all know they wont learn anything if TLC is around.

I wonder if TLC is afraid of Kate. If one of the other shows dropped ratings like this it would be gone in a heartbeat.

She's bored...yawn...bored out of her skull said...

###################################

Of course it is fun to spend quality time with your kids. They only grow up once. Not twice or even three times. No do overs.

Then as a parent you wish you could go back when they were little. I have always wanted to go back when my boys were 3, 1 and newborn. Just for a weekend.

kate was probably bored because PurseBoy wasn't with her. She is always bored when he is not in proximity of her body.

Jamie must have messed up big time to loose full custody of her kids. My dad waited to get a divorce till I was 18 because most courts favor the mother. The only time a court wont favor the mother is when she has a mental illness or has neglected/abused the children.

==========
Not necessarily. Nowhere was it mentioned that she lost custody of the children. It could very well be that she gave up custody of the children to her husband when they were divorced. There are many factors entering into either parent is awarded custody, and as far as I know, this has never been made public.

What is up with the text lingo? How old is she, nine?

And how many of you moms out there are having pool parties daily? And tweeting about it?

Weird, just weird.

Looks like she traded in the gas station,UPS,Target,Salon for the pool in the backyard! Thank you for that!! So nice to "not see her mug" on every magazine! Can't wait for the twins to start the "talk show" circuit and tell their story!! THAT I WOULD WATCH!!

Twitter only allows 140 characters per tweet, hence the abbreviations. Most twitterers learn how to be more precise than Kate. And yeah, pretty much everything she tweets is weird!!

"Anonymous annie said...

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

I realize that. I use twitter also. I do NOT, however, use stupid abbreviations.

Teens and tweens using this? Well, it's their language, kind of interesting to watch it develop.

But I think it's kind of silly for Ms. Gosselin to be mimicking things like that. "Look at me! I'm cool! I'm bad! I'm hot!"

For Pete's sake, folks thought she was serving grilled cheese when she meant grilled chicken. Way to communicate, Ms. G.

Wonder what she reads. Tiger Beat?

ncgirl said...

According to the show's facebook page, they want people to ask Kate questions. They're probably going to do another show where she answers questions in her snotty way and throws the question cards around. The questions are sad and funny at the same time. I have questions, but she wouldn't answer them.

Shoka's Understudy said...

TLC has another winner in its line up of fantastic shows! (snark)

Extreme Couponing. A couponer bought alot of groceries 1800 dollars worth and paid a few dollars for them. The reason why is she used coupons in a fraudent way. Just read an article on it with proof with pictures of what she bought and which coupon she used. She bought brand a cereal but used brand z coupon.

She thinks she has done nothing wrong and will do it again. Just like kate. She thinks she has done nothing wrong working her kids into the ground, making her money to support her lavish lifestyle.

No wonder those people are so nervous at the checkout with the coupons. They know exactly what they are doing.

to vltaylor: You read that wrong. Kate is not in NYC, her hairdresser, twitter, that he almost got runover by NYPD, getting out of a cab. Kate is in her yard by pool. You have to read between the lines with Kates tweets, and read them a few times, cause she sometimes runs thing together and they don't make sense.

You are right! It is really hard to decipher what Kate says when she tweets. Thanks for clarifying that. Is it cold in PA today? I live in NY and it is freezing here.

former fan from seattle said...

Hi all, I have been lurking on this site for years now,after moon left her site. I grew up with a mentally ill mother and to make a long story short, I never knew what to expect when I came home from school.I never knew if I'd be coming home to a snack or the belt.I treaded VERY lightly. I can not tolerate yelling of any kind as an adult, I will walk out. I have read that kids from abused homes can develope PTSD. I can see the PTSD all over the Gosselin childrens faces. This is so sad and makes me want to go and rescue them all. As much as I want the show off the air, I am afraid of what Kate does and says to those children in private. I on the other hand have gone in the opposite direction with my girls and do not stike them ever. They are 20 and 14 now and are perfectly lovely with much fewer hangups than myself. My mom, on the other hand, is in her 60's now and medicated, by court order, and cannot stop appologizing. I did not see or speak to her for 17 years because I didn't want my children anywhere near her. my youngest and my husband have not met her. I am afraid that this is Kates fate. Sorry so long. This is a well written blog and it entertains me frequently. Thanks

This is reminiscent of when, at one of K8G's B'day Extravaganzas for the tups, she fretted about Nana Janet riding the horse - K8G's fear was Nana's getting hurt. This concern was NOT related to potential harm done to Nana, but, instead, was related to Nana being rendered unable to provide her usual (free) help around K8G's house.
It's ALWAYS been ALL ABOUT KATE. What's it going to take for TLC to get it that no one has any interest in seeing any more of Kate Gosselin in ANY venue?

Babsie said...

Had more than enough said..

There is still hope. Yesterday on the entertainment news show The Insider commented in who got it and who don't..Kate was a don't. I don't recall exactly what was said but they did commented that the divorce and Kate "going hollywood" was a big turn off for the audience.

Could it be that TLC is trying to distant themselves from Kate? It's not there fault afterall. It's that darn divorce and that darn Kate.

Thank God that Jason was not hit by the car that missed him. But, really kate, do you think if Jason was hurt and in the hospital, do you think all his thoughts would be about YOUR hair?

I very seriously doubt it.

Also, Nana Janet riding the horse at the party for the tups. kate was only fretting-pre cackling about her riding the horse because she didn't want her to get hurt, so she could grift her free labor.

I clearly remember seeing Nana Janet riding the horse and kate with her arms folded, turning around and giggling and saying something like that poor horse.

No, kate you are the poor horse. A sagging, nag of a horse looking for your next free bag of oats at the Kentucky Derby, the granddaddy of all grifters. Well, you are way past your prime and it is time to be put out to pasture.

Maybe the next owners of the McMansion, when it is sold, will let you stay out in the barn/stables like you promised the previous owners (conditional to the sale of the home, they were to remain there) and you will have the back acreage to graze and grift.

O-Hi-O said...

Can someone who has always complained and moaned about how she's TOO busy and always exhausted has time to Tweet so much?

Another inconsistency in the disintegrating K8G brand.

Aunt Chris said...

Hmm, I thought the hairdresser's name was Ted? Was she too much of a STAH for him?

Sharla said...

Gentle reminder time. This blog is about the Gosselins not sextuplets in general. This is not the place to discuss recent births of sextuplets.

Even sadder if she gave up her children. As a mother of grown children, I would have fought to the death for my children....still would. I can only imagine how Jamie's kids must feel watching her mothering the Gosselin kids...so sad

I'm not so sure that she's there to do any "mothering." It seems like the media/fame bug hit her some time ago, and she likes the attention it brings, not to mention the association with a "celebrity."

Usually when a new episode is coming up, US Weekly and OK will put it in their "whats on TV" this week section. This time, its not listen. It seems like even the media is tuning out.

I think it speaks volumes about Kate, that at the height of her "fame", siblings/parents/other family, were not crawling out of the woodwork to get a piece of the pie. How many other stars, whether it be reality, or a Actor/singer, have had family come about to sell stories about them? Too many too count. But no one wants to be associated with Kate. I wonder if other than Kevin, if her siblings even tell people they know she is their sister? I know I wouldn't.

Mary said (re Jaimie):
Even sadder if she gave up her children. As a mother of grown children, I would have fought to the death for my children....
===============================

In the instances I've personally known where the mother did not get custody, it was for a variety of reasons.

1. She didn't want custody -- this is the most rare of all. I've only known one instance where the mom said "I don't want it, you take him," and that was because she was turning into a drug addict and all she cared about were drugs.

2. Mom has a substance abuse problem, wants the kids, but dad fights in court and wins custody.

3. Dad is being a jerk, doesn't want to pay child support, outguns the mom by getting a high priced attorney and mom represents self - loses custody to dad.

Who knows what Jaimie's story is, but I find it unnatural for a mom to not have custody (or at least 50/50 custody) of her kids. I would be absolutely miserable if I didn't have my son living with me and I definitely would be constantly trying to get that court order modified to get custody back if I ever landed in that situation.

So to me, I take it as another reason not to like nor trust Jaimie. She's just as unnatural a mother as Kate, in her own way.

"Hmm, I thought the hairdresser's name was Ted? Was she too much of a STAH for him?"

I think Ted owns the salon, and Jason works for him.

Why do these shows keep have her appearing.... they keep her in front of the viewers...

I feel Kate will no go away...she will be around a long time....even after TLC......

What is her attraction I want to know?

Some women have children to make their husbands happy. The wife may not be interested in being a parent, but the husband is. So, the father can sometimes be the only real parent in the house anyway, and it would make sense for him to take full custody in the case of divorce.

Not surprising at all that TLC is trotting out Kate for the media blitz before the return of the series. Same old, same old. *yawn*

Let's all pray for lower ratings.

TLC has agreements with networks, shows, or magazines. That's why you see her or, for instance, the Duggars, always on the Today show, or in People, or that bland "reporter" from People on the Today show talking about her, etc..

Anyway, she sure is pushing again for her self-perceived "fame", on Twitter. It just continues to amaze me that she doesn't get how much this turns people off. The desperation is, frankly, embarrassing. A latest tweet - her (I assume) response in capital letters, no less, all the better to EMPHASIZE!

"RT @LEIGHSHAHAN1 @Kateplusmy8 You ever get nervous before going on live tv? NEVER.LOVE IT.HOPE IT'S MY FUTURE4EVER. I ENJOY COMMUNICATING!:)"
