Monday, June 6, Episode 6 Now Kate's Night Out Episode 9

Will it air and what will it be?  How many viewers will watch?

(30 minutes)

May be 60 minute episode 9.  TLC seems to having trouble deciding what to do next.

Kate's best friend Jamie surprises her with a birthday weekend in New York. The two have a night on the town, including dinner and dancing! But how will Kate handle a loud club full of people? Meanwhile, Ashley watches the kids back home make a mess!

60 minutes

My two cents:  Don't try to hand us it's a surprise any more.  We know it was all a TLC scripted event and had to be arranged well in advance and to find a place that would allow filming.  So TLC is now trying to capitalize on Kate as a freak rather than the alleged perfect mother? 

Also the next episodes listed are 10 and 11 although scheduled to be shown reversed.  6, 7, and 8 are missing somewhere.

Probably the kids 7th birthday party.
Viewers? Remarkably less than the last one. Everyone has been there, done that and done that, and done that..................

catfan said...

Either the kids birthday party or Kate's birthday bash in NYC.

O-Hi-O said...

"How many viewers will watch?"

Not this one!! I will watch here @ GWoP to see what ratings this sure-to-be-a-dog of a show brought in.

Shoshanna said...

Let's hope every one of her potential viewers finds something better to do that night - like sorting our their sock drawers!

enough is enough said...

I can't wait to see 6 abused kindergarteners turn SEVEN while their vile shallow mom complains and sucks all the fun out of the day. And I am truly worried about the twins, especially Cara. She seems sooo depressed. End this misery

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

Has to be the kid's birthday. Now it all makes sense. Kate's tweet that she was exhausted from the party and was still recouping the next day. I guess it was retake after retake after retake that got her so pooped.
Won't be watching. Can't stand how she hogs every scene from the kids. Makes me want to retch.

Never a fan said...

Let's pray that somehow the show is not shown because the TLC people, after this episode with the Court and refusing to pay, badmouthing the psychologist, now twittering about no does not mean never or some such craziness, just let her fade away.

The woman who heads up that station "made her name in that business and got her promotions over a couple of reality shows and KJ8 was one of them.

Wonder now if they "do lunch"

fidosmommy said...

I don't think it will be the 7th Birthday party. There is footage of other events before that. There is Kate's trip to NYC for her time out with her friends, which may coincide with her own Birthday party.

Have we seen the film of the grocery shopping and the "giving back" episode done at the Eastern Tennessee food bank? I don't know because I don't watch.

The Bunny Trail said...

Didn't they film an Easter episode?

Annie said...

I think its the Tennessee food bank episode. Its far reaching for her to be giving back. She has not given back to the community that helped raise her kids. They provided so much to her and the family. Kate has not taken the time to volunteer at any of the organization in her home town. I dont buy it that she wanted to go to Tennessee to help out at a food bank. Why did she have to fly the kids to Tennessee to work during their spring break? They could have stayed home and helped out at the local food bank and still had time to do fun things with Jon and friends.

ChurchMouse said...

Funny that there is only a potential date listed for the "episode", but no other data.

Brings to mind a bunch of suits arguing whether or not they should even bother airing whatever is left over.

Then again, you DO realize that TLC owns all of the footage, even the unaired stuff, and can go back and create whatever monstrosity they want as a "special."

And Ms. G has no control over any of it. So if TLC wants to throw her under the bus, they can, in spades.

barbee said...

Hey, Churchmouse, it'll be like a reunion for kate under the bus, remember how many people SHE threw there?

cali-girl said...

How much longer can they focus on birthday parties? Seriously. Especially in this new format where KATE talks all the time, shrieks, cries, screams.

I used to love to watch b/c of what the KIDS said, and I don't mean on the couch with all the crazy antics, sitting upside down, etc. I mean when the show used to really focus on THEM, and all their little everyday funny actions and sayings.

My grandson is 7--he still says funny, amazing stuff sometimes--the kinds of things you write down to treasure years later.

You'd never know that these kids were once funny and cute, and that Aidan or Joel (I can't remember which one) was the little professor with all his scientific interest. Or that Alexis loved alligaters (You'd never know that from the Australia trip--it sounded like the background "voices" were trying to convince her she had another favorite now.

I don't care about how Kate feels (can you say upstaging the kids?)--how did it feel to Mady and Cara to make that incredible jump off the building? How did the tups feel about seeing all those animals at the zoo, riding the horses, seeing the Statue of Liberty etc.?

They probably are still cute and funny in a 7 yr and 10 old way--let's either hear their reactions and make that a show (and I worry about that b/c of the all the $ generated that they may never see), or be done with it completely.

circling the drain said...

No matter what they air: food bank, kate's cougar bday, the tups turning 7 while still in kindergarten, whatever, K+8 is circling the drain. I love that Kate insisted on continuing this stupid show without Jon but cannot sustain a show without him. He was the heart and soul of the old show, the one real loving parent. I know he wants the kids off tv, but I bet even now, Jon and the kids could carry a show way better than Kate. Love it. Karma

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

Regarding the food bank, Kate, the puppet, being told to tell her adoring fans her family is now addicted to giving back. Can't remember exactly how she put it but it was something to the effect of all of them being so in to it now and this will be their new thing. Just you all wait and see. My God. What a bullsh**er she is. Whatever the TLC execs decided she should push to see if her ratings improved, she did. Has anyone seen her and the kids out there giving back lately? And even if she did, no one cares. She's still twitting away to her 11 year old fans that she loves lounging by her pool and having daily picnics. Life is rough Kate. Get your big flat ass off your lounge chair and do something worthwhile that you can be proud of. Volunteer at a palliative ward. Think of others just for once. And don't bring the cameras with you, super stah. It might actually go a long way in repairing your image.

*********************
The Lie: Who is she having picnics with, Steve? The kids haven't finished school yet!

The Truth: She is seething and trying to drum up business with the teenage sector, hoping something will come of it.

You are done Kate...both sides!!!

Laine said...

It seems like it would be ironic if they show the 'giving back' show so soon after she lost the court case for not paying a bill.

Kia Ora said...

I read TLC audiance is for 18 to 34year olds. Could explain alot? Know we have a starh past her prime at 36. How funny is that.

Shoka's Understudy said...

A day or two ago, I read on her Twitter that she was asked what was going to be the next show about.

She said it was too early for the tups birthday, and she wasn't for sure what would be shown.

You would figure that someone who was on tv would know what episode was being aired next.

Let's see, there is the Food Bank, the kate hits the klub manhunt, the tups birthday.

If they show those 3, that is another 750K dollars in kate's koffers!

Wouldn't that pay off your house?

Please go away, you are despicable!

ChurchMouse said...

"Shoka's Understudy said...

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

But it's not her show. Never has been. It's TLC's show. They call all of the shots, they own all of the rights, and Ms. Gosselin is merely a participant who gets what they feel like tossing her.

And at some point, TLC won't want to toss anything at her. Then what? What is her plan B?

Reality shows stink, no matter how you look at them. I don't care how "cute" the babies were--it's still a non-union show where working persons have no representation or regulations for safety or finances.

What's it going to take to get rid of this trash tv? Or at least get some proper legislation that will protect unknowing participants?

======
She's under contract with them. I would think that anyone who likes to be so much in control would be aware of what shows are airing, and when. All she would have to do is to call the suits and ask in what order they are planning to show them. TLC certainly knows what's next on the list. Something just sounds really strange about her not knowing which episode will be shown next.

Christine said...

I will not be watching and don't know anyone else who will be either.

I say they have to show the food bank episode. Even if it still gets low ratings, the day after the show, there will be blogs and articles all over the internet about Kate giving back. Im sure a small number of people might buy into it and that is about the best she and TLC can do to improve her image.
The her trip to NY would do nothing for her image and who wants to see another birthday party?

Breaking News from Under the Bus said...

Who would be under the bus? Tony, Brad, Jon, Uncle Kevin, Her Dad, Uncle Henry, Hot Water Heater Guy, The 2 Surfer Teachers, The Bird Guy, The Aborigines, Colin, Aaden, Joel, Steve from This Old House.

She loves to belittle big boys and little boys and throw them under the bus.

The Greyhound is coming around the bend!

In her eyes, does gender really have anything to do with it? Beth, Jodi, a myriad of nannies/housekeepers, Sylvia Lafair, Sarah Palin, Mother Kreider, Mother Gosselin...the list would go on and on.

Tamara said...

It's been obvious for quite a while that TLC doesn't care about Khate's image, or making her look good. So I doubt that is how the would choose episode storylines. Same with showing things viewers have already seen a number of times, like birthday parties.

Any idea if friends and clasemates were invited to the party this time around?

ncgirl said...

"Any idea if friends and clasemates were invited to the party this time around?"

Kate twittered there were around 70 people. The TLC crew can't be that large, and there couldn't have been any outside family members. Maybe there were schoolfriends there. Of course, Kate exaggerates or lies.

You mean kate had to go to Fedex and make 70 copies of the Confidentialty Agreement/Non-Disclosure for the KIDS and Parents to sign for the Birthday party?

This is probably why she was soooo
pooped. Time out in the white plastic throne.

She's come undone said...

I was watching 48 Hrs on TLC and during commerical time they did a "Tips for your Home from TLC" thing. Well, there was Kate with her old hairdo and the tups were little again. She did a segment on her famous "organization" style. It felt like TLC was trying to get their money's worth out of Kate before she gets flushed. They are even using film that never made it on TV before.

Hilarious, haha!
I can't imagine her having commoner's children among hers, and at HER HOUSE. What did she do, rent a port-a-potty? I can't see that shrew letting anyone using her indoor facilities.
I don't know which episode is next, but I bet the viewership is going to be lower.

And now she wants to be a fitness instructor/ nutritionist? Gee, Kate, I think you lack the proper credentials...

JoyinVirginia said...

Didn't she go shopping with the twins? Maybe some mashup of grocery shopping then "giving back". Whatever it is, the show has BEEN boring, is STILL boring, and will BE boring!

kate was so pooped out that she decided to take time out in the white plastic throne and said, Oh, PurseBoy! Bring me my wine.

And he(PurseBoy) said, We haven't had that spirit here since 1969!

On twitter today she was talking to someone who gradually building up running miles and was up to 10 miles per day. There is no way kate runs all those miles, wasn't she up to 8? And fitness/nutritionist? What a joke! She buys very little organic and buys the kids junk food to eat, because it is easier. What a moron.

Shoka's Understudy said...

Can't wait until the Judge rules on the outcome of the appeal. If kate is turned down, does she have another avenue of appeal or will she have to pay the money then?

I think it is wonderful that Jon paid his part and kate who is a skinflint, didn't and now it makes Jon look normal and good and it makes kate look like a grifting moron.

O-Hi-O said...

re: K8G's reported aspiration to be a fitness instructor: I'm guessing it's the "I'm Large and In Charge!/My Way or the Highway!" factor coupled with yet another opportunity to get in people's faces and SCREAM ugly things to them (ala a Drill Sgt.) that might appeal to Kate Gosselin. AND she'd get paid to simply be the obnoxious person she is! Win/Win from K8G's perspective.

Blech.

Brummygirl said...

The only way Kate would have 70 people there, was if she had it at a restaurant!!
There again, she would object to all the common people sharing her private party!!
She could have said to the t.v. crew "You may invite your families to watch our celebration, but do not step over the chalk line, under the severest of penalties!!!

ChurchMouse said...

Regarding Ms. Gosselin becoming a fitness trainer:

It's a lot more that just writing books and having tv shows. It involves working with clients and being personable.

At some point, Ms. Gosselin has got to realize that her, "Plan B" must involve being kind and considerate to others--even difficult people.

She wants a career as a fitness expert and nutritionist? Fabulous. Keep the kids off TV, get yourself some GOOD representation and a go for it.

Then you will see this blog cheer for you. Until then, big fat raspberries.

Auntie Pam said...

Why would she think that all the followers on twitter are supporting her?I guess I don't get the whole twitter thing I stop by now and than but I don't support her in any thing.Am I counted as a supporter for just stopping in somtime?If so I will never check that out again.

**************************
Not only that, she is far too lazy to put herself out there day in day out.

fitness moron said...

Fitness guru, ha! How kate got her nasty body:

-Organic diet of Starbucks, cigarettes and gum
-Tummy tuck/removal of extra butt
-Good bra/boob job
-Lipo on thighs, knees, cankles, belly, chins, and remaining butt (she started lying about running 4-5 miles a day 5-6 times a week *roll eyes* and showing off her belly around the time she began getting lipo)
-Sprayed on six pack abs (laughable considering she has the skin tone of a sharpei)
-Wears 5 inch heels under too-long pants or too-short skirt

To be a fitness expery, shouldn't one actually be fit? She doesn't even look healthy or attractive, hasn't anyone told her yet? For all the running she claims to do, her running shoes still look brand new and she has very little muscle tone. She also doesn't run long enough to break a sweat, even in the summer. She was positively lethargic on dwts, no cardiac stamina at all. She's not limber or graceful. I doubt she can touch her own flintstone toe.

Kate, you are not hot. Not healthy. Not pretty. You lie about the amount of running and exercise you do. Any weight you have lost was courtesy of a glorified vacuum cleaner and when you aren't wearing 5 inch heels, your body looks similar to what it did before all the lipo. You are always exhausted and amazingly incapable of doing much without needing someone to help you. That doesn't sound like a healthy, fit, well fed person to me. Quit embarrassing yourself.

txmom said...

Her teenage fans are concerned that a rerun is being shown in June...Kate says, no worries!...

But, how does this work exactly? She isn't on the TLC summer ads, she can't be located on their webpage..Is she only paid if the new episodes are AIRED?
She may not be concerned, but if it was me, I would be!TLC could just be giving her lip-service, then one day she calls TLC, and gets a 'you have reached a number that is no longer in service. check the number and dial again'...

I think she is used up, exhausted (pardon the pun). There just isn't anything left to get out of her.
Even the traffic here has slowed down, there aren't any pap pics of her, and apparently TLC is now asking her to tweet her fans to drum up interest for her show.

Anyone in agreeance? lol

Dream A Little Dream said...

Anyone in agreeance? lol

****

Agreeance is a good word. I don't know where Kate learned it, or if it was just a fluke on her part. It's archaic, but nevertheless, a word in the English language:

Main Entry: agreeance
Part of Speech: n
Definition: the act of agreeing
Example: Usage of the site constitutes agreeance with these terms.

disgusted in pa said...

Here's a thought--perhaps TLC is not announcing exactly which episode will air to boost ratings?
They figure that even some of us "haters" and "on-the-fencers" will tune in to see which episode is aired. Then, due to curiosity or laziness, will not change the channel. Just a guess.

O-Hi-O said...

"They figure that even some of us "haters" and "on-the-fencers" will tune in".

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

Are there any 'on the fencers' left at this point? It seems Kate Gosselin is such a polarizing person that few 'the jury is still out' remain. It seems only two camps currently exist: we jelluz haterz vs. the young and the dim who still believe that life in Gosselinville as shown on "K8+8" is real and that K8G is a long-suffering victim, worthy of sympathy and support.

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

This, in a nutshell, is why Kate will never be successful at anything. To be successful, one must work hard, either by going to some training school or college to obtain knowledge and skills, or being self-taught through your own work experience.

The second stage to being successful isn't always necessary, but it certainly helps - and that is good people skills. Being able to sell yourself or your product. Having people like you and want to do business with you. Developing trust with clients, etc.

When she was young, Kate formulated a plan for success. Get a nursing degree and be involved in a field that would open doors to fertilization doctors. Get a husband who is easily manipulated, and who has access to the money needed for fertility treatments. Try, try again to achieve a pregnancy with multiple babies.

Then, promote the heck out of the pregnancy and birth. Grift your state for nursing care beyond the 12 months allowed. Con church members into making love donations. Con community members into volunteering their time, not only to help care for the sextuplets, but to do your laundry for you, etc.! Get your husband accidentally fired for soliciting money and an opportunity for a tv show while on his work hours and on the employer's computer!

Kate has worked toward goals, in her fashion. But she's inherently lazy, not too bright, and to put it mildly, unpleasant to work with. I cannot see her having what it takes to succeed in any career on her own two feet. She would flounder in any office and her co-workers would complain about her constantly. She would alienate customers and offend the public time and again.

In fact, I wonder if she could even make it past an initial interview for any sort of normal job? What would a prospective employer think of a woman who arrived for an interview with booby guard in tow?

It sure seems like TLC has finally smelled the burning coffee and are re-evaluating whether to sink more money into another season, or call it a day.

CakeIsGreat said...

I think if the episode does air on June 6th, it will be because TLC has decided to "burn off" the filmed episodes. Networks do it all the time. They paid for the episode, so, even if its not bringing in the ratings, and they have no plans to film more, they figure they might as well air them instead of letting them collect dust somewhere. TLC has been airing a commercial a lot about Memorial Week being the big premiere week, when "everyone's favorite shows" will return. The G's are not in the commercial, nor is the show set to air during that week. I believe there was talk awhile ago that an episode was going to air Memorial Day. Maybe that was never true, or maybe TLC didn't want to waste there premiere kick-off on an expensive show they're not getting a return on anymore. There aren't commercials for the episode. We don't even know what the episode will be since there isn't information anywhere. Sounds to me like TLC doesn't care very much about it anymore. Its about time!

Bad News Guys



So far this season "Kate Plus 8" has had a bit of a whirlwind schedule on TLC -- it will show up for a few weeks, go away again, come back, and then disappear some more. With all this in mind, it can often be tricky to even keep people informed as to what week it is a new episode, and what week it will not even be on TV.

Thankfully, fans can rejoice thanks to this new message from Kate Gosselin's Twitter, which confirms that "Plus 8" will return on Monday, June 6 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern -- and will also continue to air new episodes for a good portion of the summer at the same time. Considering that Gosselin is promising plenty of "fun" coming up, it seems as though the show will hope to continue some of its sense of discovery it had during the Australia trip that aired earlier this spring.

A As for what sort of content these episodes will contain, that much is unknown -- though Kate has talked about filming her sextuplets' birthday part for the show. (She also did some community service at one point with them at a food bank.)

Are you excited for more "Kate Plus 8" this summer?



Examiner.com Kate Gosselin confirms return of 'Kate Plus 8' to TLC June 6 - National TV | Examiner.com http://www.examiner.com/tv-in-national/kate-gosselin-confirms-return-of-kate-plus-8-to-tlc-june-6#ixzz1Ni0wmhR7

Rhiannon said...

Sounds like TLC is going to use K+8 to prop up its summer line-up - let's keep those low viewing numbers coming!

Elspeth said...

I don't think Kate's numbers are good enough at this point to be considered propping up anything. As someone said last week, TLC is likely in burn off mode with Kate. Her show was moved out of premiere week which is not a good sign for her. The last couple of shows have been at or below TLC's average and that likely means no more renewals. TLC IMO will air the episodes that they have filmed as long as the numbers don't enter the zone of having to rebate the advertisers. Once the show starts actively losing money, Kate will be history regardless of all other factors.

Sharla said...

Now the TLC website is showing a 60 minute episode nine on June 6.

NJMom said...

I think this upcoming episode is the kid's 7th birthday party. Who knows, maybe they'll also show something about Kate's birthday in New York city. I guess those poor kids will have to continue working fow quite awhile longer. Is it possible that TLC doesn't want to cancel because there are too many people employed by the show (not just the family)?

ChurchMouse said...

"NJMom said...

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

Aww, bless your heart, you still think TLC is some kind employer instead of a large corporation.

I keep saying this. THIS IS NOT A UNION SHOW. The participants DO NOT have the same rights as regular actors. Hell, the crew probably is non-union as well.

So TLC can give everyone a pink slip, at any time, for no reason at all, and no one has any recourse. This is why ALL REALITY SHOWS are the pits for the participants.

Rhiannon said...

Yes, I see the TLC website does show that at 10:00 p.m. on June 6, they will play Episode 9, a 60 minute show. It will replay at 1:00 a.m. on June 7th.

So she still has a less desirable time slot - because 10 p.m. doesn't sound like primetime family viewing to me. This was for shows airing from 05/29 through 06/13, with nothing shown as airing on 06/13 (the following Monday).

What is somewhat puzzling is that when I go to check out 19 Kids & Counting, the page says this show airs on Mondays at 10/9 Central also. I also notice that several of the other shows (Little Couple, NY Ink, Cake Boss, etc.) have an indication on the top left of their page that either says "Returning on [date] [time]" or "airs on [day of week][time]". Kate Plus 8 does not have that indication. To me, that indicates TLC has either not made a final decision to give Kate Plus 8 a guaranteed time slot on their lineup, or maybe the decision has been made to air Kate Plus 8 on occasional Mondays here and there.

O-Hi-O said...

Yes, this is every bit the 'surprise' as when the twins supposedly 'surprised' K8G when a van pulled up to their house to take them someplace (K8G's b'day? Who remembers, Who cares). Pre-teen kids planned this and that iron gate K8G needs for 'security' - yeah, sure, you bet.

K8G 'dancing' again? Seriously?


Viewers, meet the bottom of the barrel. The dregs. THE END of Queen K8G's reign of ridiculousness.

Desperation is an ugly thing.

It's not strange at all. TV actors typically don't know in advance what footage will air, and they often aren't privvy to scheduling info either.

(And if they do get scheduling info, it's not necessarily right. I can't tell you how many times my actor son has been given incorrect air dates.)

Amy too said...

I continue to find all of this exhausting. To even hear, now, that there are these photos of Kate and Jaime, Kate wants to have a show, I guess with Jaime about personal trainers is more about Kate being on TV.

I wouldn't be surprised if that is what happens, that she gets that show.

TLC owes her something, why?

Hopefully those children are going to stop suffering, like they do.

I agree with another poster about Cara and what seems like depression.

JMO that this all going to blow up in TLC and Kate's faces sooner than later.

Sharla said...

The way TLC has flip flopped when and what was airing next, it wouldn't surprise me if only a handful of people at TLC knew what was happening. They have no reason to keep Kate in the loop unless they want her to put something on Twitter.

Amy too said...

Sharla I do think you are right, TLC is trying to play with their schedule to see how to pull in the most viewers at that specific time of 10. It might be a big time slot for the age group.Maybe putting Kate on at that time helps build up her viewership(not working TLC)

Reality TV is still new and that woman who got the big promotion for discovering Kate and several other shows is now the CEO or something like that. Maybe she owes Kate also.

TLC is all craziness to me.

Still, I feel very sorry for the Gosselin children and I hope Paul Peterson finds a way to get those kids off of TV since their mother doesn't care about them, nope JMO

Hey now! On behalf of shar-pei everywhere, my furbaby Macy takes offense at the comparison to Kate! ;)

Macy says her lustrous wrinkles and rolls are a result of fine Chinese lineage and champion bloodlines. Kate's rolls and wrinkles are totally self-inflicted and are a result of tanning addiction and overly invasive lipo. Macy does concede Kate probably smells better than she does these days, this hot weather tends to make a wrinkly pup a little ripe. Woof!

So the woman who was all set to take on the Mommy empire and tell all parents how to organize their lives and handle their children is now going clubbing! Thanks for keeping it classy, TLC. What a sad life. And the idiot Kate stands ready to do whatever they tell her. She'll be boxing Tonya Harding soon and trying to relaunch the Surreal Life. My oh my, Kate.

The "post" is the part the mod writes in the block that begins a "topic" or "thread." "Comments" are what readers submit to follow under the post.

The post for this topic has been updated and yet people persist in sending through as "new" information the same information I added to the post this morning. Three of those in a row indicated that readers were not looking for or paying attention to either the updates in the post or recent comments.

A couple of comments have even been sent in along the lines of when is the next episode or what is it about.

TLC Run by Morons said...

I think it's hilarious (in a pathetic kind of way) that TLC is using this sentence to help promote the episode: "But how will Kate react to a club full of loud people?" That's their big draw in? Tune in to see if Kate behaves like a party pooper because a dance club is loud and full of people?

And she leaves all the children with a young babysitter rather than their own father?

Sounds to me like TLC doesn't know what demographic they are trying to appeal to. Do they think 20-somethings will tune in to see an overtanned old fart like Kate hit the club scene? How about the mom struggling to feed her family on a lean budget - is she going to be interested in seeing two vapid women out at some dance club? Maybe the grandma type who still tunes in because she thinks the sextuplets are cute -- will she enjoy this jaunt to New York or shake her head and think "what's the matter with this lady?"

Then to watching 8 children left in the care of a teenager while their mother goes out of town to drink and party. What demographic will tune in to see an overworked teen chase after undisciplined, unruly children? Will there be hitting, tears, howls and messes? Um, no thanks TLC - not sure where you got the idea that was entertainment - go back to the drawing board and try again dumbbells.

Seriously, are morons running the show at TLC? Have they always been in charge? They package up this junk and expect advertisers to pay to place commercials in the midst of it all?

barbee said...

wonder what tlc's logic is airing the tups '6th' birthday. We've SEEN THAT, and it wasn't any change from all the other trips we saw, seen one airport - seen 'em all, seen one hotel - seen 'em all, seen one beach/pool - seen 'em all. GET THE DRIFT TLC? We've seen it all, move on to something NEW!

winsomeone said...

The ad for the next show, shows the kids totally wrecking their living room, it looks like. How unreal is this, when we all know they wouldn't normally do anything remotely like this and then have to face their mother afterwards? I don't think kids of age, whether on TV or not, would trash their house like that.

Amy too said...

Kate will be a filler at TLC with what has been filmed, that is it. Things, like ratings, would have to turn around for TLC to do anything else with Kate & her kids.

I got the impression from reviews that the kids were in the background more and more in the shows and TLC was pushing the STAR, but I think they found she is no STAR, but a screeching banshee, impressed with herself.

I accidentally went clicked into another sight close to this one last night and I was shocked. I had no idea who Baby Mama was and her sight. At first I thought she they had Jon's picture on their blog is was like this Blog, but wow.

I read those posts from the Sheeples. It is frightening, really, they do not see anything wrong with what Kate has done with those kids, nothing, they praise her for being a "so called working Mom"

Know what it was like? Going into a religious tent that someone erected, like Jim Jones and his Kool aid group. So bizarre and with a following. Makes you want to "warn them" but then you think "no one can change Kate's thinking of how to treat her children right, so these are also losers at motherhood" and I do mean that, it was scary. Are they for real?

Amy too said...

When women go back out into the dating world, they forget the world has changed. The lingo has changed and they really get an eye opener meeting men and women who haven't been married, divorced, etc., so they are carefree, having a good time but the formerly married people can't communicate, not at first.

Besides what would Kate talk about in a club? Her abs, her hair, her body, herself, not ask one question of any guy unless she was making a fool of them. That is our Kate. She does not like men.

Plus can you imagine a business man from Wall St looking at her like she is crazy when he asks her what she does? She always says the same thing ...I had 8 kids.

Then nothing other than she is on a reality show. Sure that the city guys from NY are going to falling all over themselves to talk to her unless "they are paid actors" because as soon as she opens her mouth, you get the message, loud and clear.

Hope she laughs a lot, that will do her in.

No matter how old you are, when you return to the club scene, you are older than the 20somethings, no matter how short the skirt and how big the bazooms, you do not ever look like you are in your 20s again. Should be fun to watch on a rerun night, if they even attempt to replay it.

Tizzie said...

Another episode about KATE's birthday... seriously, who cares???
You don't see REAL TV stars making specials about their birthdays.

Adults' birthday parties do not make interesting TV viewing, except for family and friends of the birthday person.

MayDay said...

I saw the commercial while watching Little Couple. I am not planning to watch.c I would not let young children to watch either to say it is ok to trash the house and ride down the staircase in a sleeping Both are very dangerous. Not good examples of behavior for young viewers to see. What is TLC thinking?

Annie2 said...

"I would not let young children to watch either to say it is ok to trash the house and ride down the staircase in a sleeping [bag]"

I agree with not watching the kids trash the house. Its never acceptable behavior. It shows that they have some pent up emotions. They went crazy to try and express themselves. I did ride sleeping bags and pillow cases down the stairs as a kid. We were only allowed to do it under parental supervision and for special occasions like sleep overs. I don't think its dangerous if the kids and parents are being safe.

I also will not watch the show because I don't need to see Kate in a club. I wonder if TLC is trying to draw in the teen mom crowd. Thats the only explanation I can think of for them showing this trash.

Break out the pudding said...

oooh, I'm secretly delghted the kids trash the Orphanage while their mom runs around NYC dressing like a slut and pretending tomhsce friends and suitors. Maybe Ashley whipped up a big old bowl of pudding for the kids to throw at each other, like Kate rudely did at the rental home at the beach. It wouldve been nice if the kids could have spent that time with their dad instead of a babysitter. But gotta say, I hope those kids finally got to have some fun and trashed it up for that vile stupid mother of theirs. Hahaha

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

Kids trashing their house?
What's next? K8 HAS to go shopping and a remodeling/makeover of the McMansion?

TLC is really desperate in their quest to make Mommy Dearest interesting. It's not working!

The best thing would be for TLC to put K8 out to pasture and lock the barn doors. She's way past "over".

what's wrong with this picture said...

Haven't seen the promos for Birthday/Trashing [interpret that as you will], but I smell a set-up for Ashley and the kids. Who would be intersted in seeing the kids playing games, crafting, doing anything "normal" with Ashley. [And I doubt she was the only "sitter" responsible for 8, count 'em 8, kids while Kate was gone].
TLC had to come up with SOMETHING to include the kids in this episode [or the name of the series would just be KATE]. What can they have the kids do when the Star Kate isn't around ?? Let's script it so the kids make a mess -- that wouldn't be too hard -- let's just encourage [ie. tell] them what to do and whip them up into a frenzy. Then everyone will get an idea of just what a good mother Kate is when she has to take care of them ALL by HERSELF.

You hit the nail right on the head.

Poor, poor Kate. She tries to have a little "me" time for the first time since the twins were born, and look what happens! The family falls apart without her formidable child-rearing and domestic management skills. She's a saint, bless her heart.

mess that house said...

The kids live such a joyless life: always have to be quiet, can't make a mess, always have to do what mom says. Until it's time for filming. Suddenly they are encouraged to run around like monkeys and scream and yell to simulate "happiness" rather than obnoxious, sugar fueled idiocy. And the kids probably had a blast being silly and messy and 'bad' for once. How scary and sad it must be to live with that leathery Mom of theirs

Amy too said...

I just saw the "film footage" of the Kate's B day night on the town with Jami.

Okay, now they are in a long limo (they arrived in film footage at the time the filming occured in a Town Car, not a new stretch limo.

Jaimi and Kate go to get their hair done, Kate is still on the phone. Jaimi is doing all the talking about their big night on the town and Jaimi is going to get Kate dancing, the "unique" hairdresser says, if Kate dances, he wants to see that.

It gets better and you will all be shocked, I think a saw a longer version of this show to be aired.

Yes, you see the kids with that stuff they spray out of a can, they roll themselves in toilet paper and the one who is seen coming down the stairs in a sleeping bag, well that is the star tup: Aaden is one seen coming down the stairs in the sleeping bag.

Ashley plays craziness out in the driveway, so no mess in the house other than toilet paper.Just pick up the toilet paper, of the TLC crew comes in and cleans up (filming in the inside of the house is a write off with the IRS for Kate, even though she likes to travel better than staying in PA)

BUT THE BEST PART? Jaimi is the leader in the NY hairdressing, sitting in the next chair, getting her hair colored too, not bad for the former babysitter? at the expensive hairdresser.

Am I done? NO. To get into the Club, Kate needs an I.D., and she does pull a "you don't know who I am" and the bouncer was not happy. Jaimi bails her out by telling the bouncer who she is, he said, you can go in, but at least you can smile and she did say something unpleasant to the bouncer, you will hear it if you dare to blow your time watching idiocy. some actors at the next table in the club are so ... with the gold chains around their neck, divorced, one has 4 kids and is about 50, yeah, all old, not anyone in their 20s or 30s or 40s, honest. Now, everyone knows the film crew is there and Kate and Jaimi are being filmed and Jaimi is striking up the conversation with the "actors at the next table"

OKAY I SAVED THE BEST FOR LAST: The sofa where Kate explains what happened during the show? Kate and Jaimi, knees touching, Jaimi talking more than Kate, as Jaimi is finally talking and very vocal and domineering, while she talks, she is constantly touching Kate. Neither woman moves her knees, they would not have to had move their bodies. But I was shocked at the physical closeness, the touching, Jaimi doing most of the talking, running the conversation.

Surprise, surprise, Jaimi is going to be permanent on the show, that is for sure, JMO.

I have to say, I was shocked, during the NY trip, the hairdresser, the bar, all Jaimi talking.

Never would Jon have gotten away with any of that.

Now I am not saying they are "involved" but something is really not right and you will see it.Kate follows Jaimi's every instruction.

Wow, what a story, huh? Jon knows what Jaimi and Kate are about, all about. would be nice if he writes that book. The kids need to read that book when they are older and can understand why that marriage broke up, not because of Steve, but Jaimi. JMO, JMO, JMO but I HAVE BEEN AROUND WOMAN who were married, had kids, got divorced, remarried, had another child, then a few years later, they are with a woman, very hard to understand that they didn't know they were attracted to woman. That is the only time Kate smiles in the brief footage I saw. Oh well, JMO.

Kate, be true to yourself and you will be respected, lie and you will be nailed to a cross, there is nothing wrong with being honest about yourself and if Kate is favoring woman, then so what, just stop destroying the children's father.

Maybe it isn't true, and TLC put it out there to draw viewers, JMO

That's all well and good. Kids should have fun and be allowed to make a mess every now and then. However, who do you suppose cleaned up that mess in the driveway and living room? Certainly not Ashley. She was busy watching the kids. Certainly not the kids. So the kids are taught that it's okay to trash a house as long as they are having fun and there will always be someone there (hired hand or TLC) to clean up that mess. Not such a good life's lesson.

We've always taught our children, "You make the mess. You clean up the mess."

hannah said...

Of course, this news is getting a ton of negative reactions as well. People are already busy commenting about Kate not spending her 36th birthday with her eight children, and about her constant traveling and what not. If you don't like Kate, you shouldn't watch the show, but if you're a fan of hers, the episode is probably going to be really good!

Blech. Ms. Gosselin acts like a bored, bitchy, whiny, snotty, and entitled fifteen-year old.

Her reason? She gets "attitudes" when she is nervous.

Hey, La Gosselin, what's the reason for the lack of sparkle, curiosity, gratitude and joy of life?

This is what passes for entertainment? So glad I don't have cable TV.

I'm sorry, maybe I'm not watching the same video, but I didn't see any inappropriate/suggestive behavior, either by Kate or Jamie that would indicate that they are anything more than just friends.

I can't see Jon writing a book, either now or when the children are older. He cares much too much for those children and would not expose them to the "real" story, no matter what that might be - not even when they are grown and old enough to understand.

I hope you are right. So much of these chidren's live has been splattered all over the media. No matter what we may think. This is their mom and this is their childhood and this is their story. If and when they want to share "the truth" with the world, it should be up to them.

so sick of her said...

Kate will be on the Today show monday. She twitted that she did a 3 hour interview. Which she called a radio tour. The interview will be broadcasted over several stations, on monday morning. Which means it is a syndicated show, which was recorded today, for broadcast on monday. It was not a radio tour. What an idiot, does not know the difference between a syndicated show and a radio tour. A radio tour means you go to the stations, not record it and it is played later. She also said other shows, but did not name them. I guess, we should have known NYC was coming, her hairdresser mentioned it.

Unless Ashley was shooting toilet paper out of a can, that WAS stringy spray that was released in the living room.

Right after Ashley says, "We are going to make a mess." Around 0:12. I can't imagine cleaning stringy string inside a house. I had enough of a problem with it in a yard and swore I'd never let them use it again!

I saw the various versions of the footage and there was nothing in any of them, in my opinion, that suggested Kate and Jamie did anything shocking during the couch interview, which would make someone say, "Are they or aren't they?"

kinman said...

I think since the last few vacation episodes have not done well in the ratings, this "night out on the town" escapade is TLC's last ditch effort to see if there is something left that people want to watch. The thing is, I bet ratings will be up for this show, because for some reason people DO want to see Kate in these situations (contrived as they are)and I think TLC might really try a show featuring Kate and Jaimi as two single gals raising these kids, dating, etc.. and I think it will not be successful in the long run. However, I think viewers will tune in this week out of curiosity since it is something new. Not this viewer, however. TLC is out of my rotation with all of their crazy shows (especially anything to do with Kate).

O-Hi-O said...

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

K8G, still living her fantasy: NYC, being catered to and pampered, getting lots of attention, and THEN, getting to talk about HERSELF for THREE HOURS. A Kate Gosselin Slice Of Heaven, where god himself revolves around HER.

If THIS is 'entertainment', it's only as a case study for Dr. Drew to analyze and exploit on tv.

Herbal Queen said...

To be a fitness expery, shouldn't one actually be fit? She doesn't even look healthy or attractive, hasn't anyone told her yet? For all the running she claims to do, her running shoes still look brand new and she has very little muscle tone. She also doesn't run long enough to break a sweat, even in the summer. She was positively lethargic on dwts, no cardiac stamina at all. She's not limber or graceful. I doubt she can touch her own flintstone toe.
--------------------------
It's not just about the fitness either. She would need to study about food, nutrition, alternative health because that is right up there now & how to eat right. I just don't see Kate doing any of that. It is hard work. She could opt for a degree, & depending on her state, she may have to. Some states require that she gets one. Some states just require a certificate, I believe. So, it's more than just fitness. It would also be diet plans for people, & being nice, helping people who are overweight, or people just coming to her asking to help them lose those pesky last 5 pounds. Or people that need to lose weight because they have high blood pressure or diabetes. It would be a 7 day a week job. Can you see Kate doing these things? No way!

Laurie said...

It was not silly string that Ashley shot in the house it was a confetti popper. Kate approved the "mess making" and would never have approved silly string in the house.

Rhiannon said...

I didn't watch the couch interview with Jaimie and Kate, but I've never believed there was anything beyond a narcissist and a "friend" who just wants a piece of the limelight, and is willing to be at Kate's beck and call to have that little slice.

Jaimie is the unlikeable version of Beth. Beth had some wonderful character traits and after awhile, realized she was selling out some of her values in order to be on television. She got out.

Jaimie doesn't have the same basic moral values, so she's willing to drop everything and be Kate's lackey and sidekick, in order to have her face on a cable tv show.

No romance, no lesbian love affair. Just two people using each other for fleeting third-rate fame.

Cammie said...

I certainly will not watch. I did catch the 2 clips. I realize that these shows are pretty scripted now but does TLC think this is how a single mom celebrates her 36th birthday? It is not like it a a big milestone like 40 or 50? Also they whole concept of the kids will play while mom is away is not hitting the mark either. We have a single mother of 5 that is a neighbor. Her sister took her out on her birthday night and a bunch of us went over and got her carpets cleaned and cleaned her house for her. She was thrilled. She didn't need a $500 haircut , stretch limo or clubbing to celebrate. She also would have never licked a guy in a club on tv! What message is Kate sending those kids, she has them pretending to give back and talk about church sometimes and then she is on tv licking a guy!

dustilies said...

She licked a guy in the club? Was she doing body shots, for crying out loud? She doesn't care about her dignity, but what about the geeeeeerms?

How lovely for the children. Even if school is out for the summer (as it is for us in Atlanta), her classmates will surely remember to tease the G8 about it in the fall.

===========
If they watch it. How many Kindergarten kids stay up until 11 p.m. on a summer night to watch Kate Gosselin and the kids? Many are on vacation, or completely wiped out after spending a day at the pool. Isn't this show rated PG? I wouldn't let my kids watch this even if they wanted to, knowing that it's Kate making an a$$ of herself in NYC. It's not a show for children.

I think that a Celebrity Work Out video would require too much work for Kate. I think is is more of a put me in a show where I can pretend to be fitness trainer. She probably pretended she wanted to be a nurse so she could have a chance at grabbing a doctor. She had arranged to have multiple births so she could pretend to be a mom. She went on Dancing with the Stars, so she could pretend to be a star" I don't think that having talent, skill or being willing to work hard ever comes into the picture when Kate thinks of advancing "her career".

Can't See Sheep said...

Herbal Queen, you are so right!

O-Hi-O, exactly, she'd be perfect for Dr. Drew he could have an entire series on just k8.

Babsie said...

________________

Agreed. I don't think k8's brain makes it past "I want this, I want that", I really don't. She doesn't seem to have a clue as to what it takes to do or achieve anything, she just wants, wants, wants & I don't think that fuzzy little piece of lint she calls a brain gets past that point often. She's like a spoilt little girl that wants everything she sees & the quickly gets bored & is onto the next toy.

Seeing her on DWTS seemed to show this nicely, she probably thought she should just win based on showing up & when she didn't & realized it actually required WORK & COMMITMENT she lost interest, like she has with so many other things. The minute work shows up k8 sits down on her white plastic throne or makes herself scarce.

As far as her licking or being licked in a club, I don't care what time of night it's on, it's inapropriate to say the least, because it will be out there in the internet world for anyone to see at anytime. Goodness, gracious, you're out in public, keep your tongue to yourself! Why did that need to be recorded or even put in the show? It'd be nice if she'd think of her kids & oh, remember she's supposed to be an example on how to behave to them. What's she doing auditioning for adult movies now or is she still hoping Hef will hire her. Look, look, see I really, really am sexy, really!!!!

From all accounts, all the "fans" of the show watch to see the kids. . .Who is going to watch Kart on a dating show. . .especially with that Jami person? I couldn't stand watching two minutes of the link. . .it was exciting as watching paint dry. Watch Kart and Jami get their hair done! Wow! Now watch them sit at a table for 2 next to another table for 2! What a co-inky-dink!

Yeah, sure. And isn't that what all of us really want for our b'day - a trip to NYC with a fellow camera- and fame-loving (paid) 'friend' so we could hang out in a bar, cameras rolling to capture that special moment of a stranger putting his tongue and saliva on our skin. Good times.

Uh huh.

It's disgusting...showing no class whatsoever. Is it going to be shown in the episode, or was this just a clip to get the "buzz" going? You're right. Why even record it at all? You know that they were paid actors and told do something outrageous to generate comments, but foot licking? If Kate weren't drunk, would she ever agree to this? Oh, that's right - she just does as she is told.

And Jon was chastised because he had his photo taken with women in bikinis, thus not living up to the moral "code" and family brand? In what universe is foot-licking in a bar by a strange man representative of good family values and strong moral ethics?

I think the closest we'll ever come to seeing that is Kate recording encouraging words for runners to listen to while they huff and sweat.

Kate the cUMunicator saith:

"Um, go! Honestly, I feel your pain! Oh come on - I run 4 miles a day, you can do this! Um, pretend it's a day at the pool.
Yeah, ignore traffic, they're just
all haterz. Go faster! If you can't really run, shuffle along, it will, um, at least look like running in the pictures. Think about the nice healthy salad waiting for you when you get home! Um, GO!"

Babsie said...

I won't be watching this whole Kate trying to hook a date mess, but it kind of feels think TLC and Kate are trying to move into the Housewives of Wherever genre.
Table for Twelve is an example of what happens if you are a normal parent trying to do the best you can to raise your kids. Obnoxious and self indulgent is the way to go if you want to succeed on cable TV.

One more reason to question the credibility of Dr. Drew. Hard for me to imagine any Psych professional who would consider K8G in the pink of mental health.

I think in this case "struggles" translates to "ISSUES".

Berks Has Shoes! said...

Anyone know what the age is in PA when a child can determine which parent she wants to live with? In Ohio, it used to be 14.

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

There is no minimum age in PA. A judge will listen to a child as young as five. There must, however, be a valid reason for the child wanting to live with the other parent. Just because the parent has a swimming pool or buys bigger and better toys is not a valid reason! It also depends on the maturity of the child. The request from a mature 10-year-old, providing he or she has a valid reason to live with the other parent, may carry more weight and influence the judge's decision more than an immature teenager.

pray-4-the-8 said...

I saw the pictures of Ashley and the kids on the TLC site and they looked like they were having a blast! Of course the pictures ended with the kids making stuff for Kate but even in those pictures they didn't seem unhappy. Sad though that they smile more around the babysitter then their mother. :-/

O-Hi-O said...

Since she so hates 'crowdation' AND claims the paps are the bane of her existence, it's nonsensical for her to go along with a b'day plan centered around BAR HOPPING in NYC.

If she so hates crowds and photogs, her chosen b'day menu should've been ye olde Shady Maple, as in the days before she believed her own press, that she's a stah!

LOL!! You should have seen Shady over the weekend...probably more crowdation than the NYC bar. But, alas, no foot-lickers there.

Rhiannon said...

Am I right in understanding the comments here: Did a man lick Kate's foot at a bar in New York? Kate actually removed her shoe and allowed a stranger to lick her toes/feet?

If so, how much more proof do any of us need about the desperation she must feel to remain in front of a television camera? I remember years ago being out dancing with friends (I was in my early 20's and in college, not a 36-year old mother of 8), and a guy told me he'd love to suck on my toes. Guess he thought it was a good pick up line. I said, No thank you and skeedaddled back to my friends!

Kate has absolutely no class. So tacky and desperate.

Since the beginning of the season the show's center has had an obvious shift away from the kids and onto Kate. This one was more than half Kate. Is TLC testing the waters for a new show called Kate Plus Date?

Supposedly Kate and Jamie have been "best friends" for 9-10 years. That was when the twins were born, and 2 yrs later the tups. Jamie lived in MI, Kate in PA. How did they manage to forge a best-friendship? And why was Jamie never even mentioned until after Kate's divorce? Where was she all those years when the tups were little and Kate "needed" all that help? Is Jamie really Kate's best friend, or does she just play one on TV?

And what about that bar scene? Does anyone think those men weren't paid actors? NY has no shortage of starving wannabe actors who can take stage directions. A couple crones walk into a club with bodyguards and a film crew with lights blazing, and non-actors are NOT going to come up and just chat them up naturally...nor would TLC waste paid filming time on gawkers, autograph-seekers, and drunk idiots. And the final tip-off was the guy who said that Kate was "a sweet person". To say that unscripted, a man would have to have been too drunk to stand up.

Taped the rerun and just watched it. Wasted my time.Kids = monkeys, Jamie and Kate = donkeys. Shoulda watched the Animal Planet instead. Foot-licker dude looked like he wanted to wipe his tongue off, LOL!All the kids did was throw crap at each other, let Ashley squirt crap on them, and then made random messes. Are they still in high chairs? And was it necessary to show Cara crying, just so Kate could say "She hates it when I go away!"? Some of the tups still need speech therapy. Watching this was less than enjoyable.

Where was Mady?

Did anyone else catch the scene where purseboy took her drink away from her on the dance floor and she protested? Looked like he took the drink out of her hand and she was saying "why?".

Overall, it was a very seedy episode. Made me wonder if TLC drops her show, MTV could pick it up. (Jesrey Shore Lite)

Blah!!! said...

If Kate and her BFF Jamie get a show together it could be called, Kate Plus Toady. Wait, I guess they wouldn't use it, it doesn't rhyme. Check out the guy's face after he licked Kate's foot. He looks as though someone dared him to do it and he's disgusted with himself afterward.

Shoka's Understudy said...

I missed the last part of last night. When kate come back from NYC and they had a suprise birthday for her, and one of the tup girls (no suprise there) was telling kate that one of the boys was sliding down the stairs on a sleeping bag.

I remember kate saying are you serious?

I saw the tups in the high chairs. They are 7 years old and they look like they are 4 years old sitting in them.

WallyWinnie said...

Horrid episode!

Did I hear Kate call the strawberry margarita "mommy juice"? Are we supposed to believe she only bought the blender to make the kids smoothies? And she never put alcohol in one before?

If she can show the kids mommy drinking/drunk in the bar with the man licking her foot....what's wrong with drinking frozen margaritas at home?

Kate in the tight black (short) dress was disturbing to me. The kids are used to the heels, but the picking out hooker looking dresses was going too far.

The only time we saw Maddy was the brief shot in the kitchen, wasn't it? I think Cara was crying because she HAD to film and could not do something she wanted to do. Where was Maddy then?

This whole show is fake and I am not buying any of it!

go away Kate said...

So now, what is the difference between Kate and Jon? Oh yeah, Kate was PAID by TLC to hang out in a bar and have strangers lick her. Yep, she is certainly more moral than Jon.

"Dr. Drew is a supporter of Kate - he's a father of multiples (triplets), so feels a kinship with her and her "struggles"


Not to seem argumentative, but I do not believe that Dr. Drew is a supporter of Kate. He and his wife have college age triplets, and he is in general supportive of parents. He has given MANY interviews about the destructive impact of malignant narcissism which all forms of reality TV (ironically including his own shows) encourage. He has said some very candid things about this carbucle on the a** of our culture. Not a Dr. Drew fan particularly, because I question the ethical foundation of exploiting addictive personalities - even if their only addition is to the pseudo celebrity of reality TV. Addiction kills, every day. I only give him a bit of a "pass" because I get better feedback from collegues and friends who know him personally.

Can't explain the ratings. Sleaze sells?

She's come undone said...

I watched 5 minutes about half way though and had to stop to keep from barfing. But I do want to congratulate Kate. She managed to throw away true friends like Beth and Jodie for a loud-mouthed, annoying, camera hungry, hooker looker like herslef. She sure knows how to pick em. You go girl.

Also, I was shocked at seeing the high chairs as well as the children acting as though they can't sit still or talk plainly. I'm just sorry to keep saying this, but there is something really, really wrong here. I have my granddaughter at my house right now (born same day, same year as tups) and she is so far advanced as to make these children look very sad indeed. Actually, I believe she is normal. She would laugh if I suggested putting her in one of those toddler chairs. And oh my wouldn't she look silly!!

What a sick situation.Sorry to hear the ratings went over a million, but I do understand perfectly so many people wanting to see Kate look foolish.

Sharla said...

They did some media push plus it's summer and it was up against reruns and less established shows?

Debbie H said...

I think it says a lot that we are actually impressed that her ratings were so "high" this episode...I'm banking that after this week, it will be the same scenario as a couple of months ago...they will go lower and lower with each show...people gave her a chance to see if anything was interesting and they see it's still the same old Kate..I bet the ratings fall to well below 1 million next week..:)

WonderButton said...

In the Today show interview, Kate specifically mentioned that Mady said she would miss doing the show if it were to end. Specifically Mady. And it was Mady who was absent in the latest Kate&Jaime-go-clubbing episode.

Coincidence? Pre-emptive damage control on Kate's part?

I hope Mady enjoyed her time off.

nolovelost said...

Honestly there is NOTHING on TV lately. I think people channel surfed and ended up watching it in a "well i guess there's nothing on so why not" kind of why. Hubby and I have been watching crappola shows on TruTV waiting for the new HBO shows to begin at the end of the month. I was pretty POed to see her ratings move north, however, for whatever reason.

Skankplus8 said...

The episode reminded me of the club/bouncer scene in "Knocked Up". In the movie, the bouncer had the good sense to tell the ladies that they were too old to act like skanks at a club.

This was a really sad episode! Kate does not look happy, you must admit. How pathetic those two looked out "partying"? And poor kids still being ordered around, told to run here and do this and that, even if it's the babysitter and not their mothers doing it.

"And poor kids still being ordered around, told to run here and do this and that, even if it's the babysitter and not their mothers doing it."

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

Judging from the clips I saw, the kids didn't look sad or "poor." They looked happy to be able to finally be kids and make a mess. Kids need direction, even if it is a fun night, regardless if it's a babysitter or a parent. You just don't let them do whatever they want, whenever they want to do it.

Kat - Ruthie-dos.blogspot.com said...

from the previews and clips I saw, the kids were having true fun with the sitter (I think it was Ashley)... I saw more in that short commercial that showed them truly having fun, being kids, and big real happy smiles than I've seen in past seasons (and especially since the divorce)

Kate doesn't get it... these kids don't need tons of "trips" full of "experiences"... kids need and want the ability to BE KIDS... to goof around, to have unstructured (and yes, messy at times) fun...

Of course structure to an extent is needed for kids, but not 24/7 like Kate seems to do.

What I think is Kate should go get her own job and be honest... this is the KIDS' job... let them film stuff they do when they aren't with their dad and Mommy is at work... they'll have more fun that way... and then all the money would HAVE to go to the kids and put for the future (preferably with no one except a team of lawyers to make the money grow in charge of it until the kids are of age)

Kate could get a job... she could be an AGENT... for all these newer families of multiples... help them brand and market and get their own shows.

No doubter said...

It was mentioned months ago that Werny Gal noticed the chicken coop was gone. Well, while Ashley was washing away the human sundaes off the sextuplets, there was a shot of where the coop used to be and it was completely gone. Then, when the kids went to make Kate's birthday cake, they pulled out eggs, in a store-bought carton, from the refrigerator.

Tanks 4 the Mammaries said...

I, too, frankly loved seeing those kids finally have an opportunity to bust loose and be kids. To make a mess, and glory in it.

It was interesting to see Kate, despite her plastic surgery, tanning, and implants, totally outshone by Jamie -- who, broader of beam, less objectively pretty, and less tarted up, came across as more attractive simply because of smiling, eye contact, enthusiasm, and confidence.

I saw a new frankness about Kate's mental illness in this episode. It's no longer the elephant in the living room. Indeed, it was focused on, even used as a plot device. Ashley's encouraging the kids to deliberately violate Kate's OCD programming, and all the frank talk about Kate's grouchy social ineptitude, were probably an effort turn a bug into a feature. And/or get us to feel sorry for her.

cali-girl said...

Jamie said, while riding in the car with Ashley, "She [Kate]never gets time for herslf" as the reason she planned Kate's birthday celebration.

I guess she'd not aware of (heavy sarcasm) the times when Kate was at the Kentucky Derby, with Steve alone in Mexico for the People mag shoot, time spent on Dancing with the Stars, trips to get her nails done, to tan, to NYC to get her hair done, time spent running, all the time each day when the kids are in school, time after the kids go to bed, etc.

And don't forget time in the "car." Kate said rather officiously, "I always take a car into NYC."

Don't we all? :-)

Re: the foot licking. Rather immodest, don't you think, to have a stranger in a pink sweater and a cross lift Kate's leg that high while she was wearing a very short dress?

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

I will say one thing - after that disgraceful display - Kate can never go back to begging at churches. I think the next show for she and Jamie will be opening their own tattoo parlor. That is the kind of business I can picture them in.

tups dont chew gum said...

That Ted Gibson salon was not cheap. $3000 for a haircut, plus she got color. She is so miserable and unappreciative of anything. she makes me want to gag! For some reason it was TIVO'ed so my son (13) decided to watc amd poke fun~
He was shocked to see the highchairs, and said MOm, how old are they again???
also they should have left the foot licking fetish on the cutting room floor. What a no class skank!

I think she's been angling to be The Bachelorette for a while now. She came right out and said something about bringing 25 bachelors in a limo next time. Sorry, Kate, you burned your bridges with ABC when you acted like a total diva on Dancing with the Stars. You will not be getting that call!

Sharla said...

I just checked TLC's average for last week (first week of their "summer season") and TLC's average had jumped up a bit to 1.179M.

"Jamie said, while riding in the car with Ashley, "She [Kate]never gets time for herslf"

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

Oh, wah! Kate Gosselin gets so much more time (and $$$) for HERSELF than any divorced and working mom I've ever known.

Kate Gosselin will feel sorry for herself in heaven itself. She'll still be whining about being unappreciated and still be claiming that no one knew how to help her so she "had to do it all herself. Times eight."

Her life is so much cushier than other single, working moms, yet she still plays victim/martyr.

She's nauseating.

Kurtsie In NJ said...

This was a stupid show. I guess TLC wants a softer, drunken side of Kate.

I think she does have a softer life with being able to pay her bills, but I don't think her life is easier, she has so much more to worry about than feeding her kids everyday. Fame has to be a bad Mommy to try to keep achieving and then staying on that Fame Wheel.

Yeah she probably is going 24 hrs a day with trying to balance all the balls she has in the air.

A neighbor of mine knew quiet well one of the stars of a big TV show. Their granddaughters were raised together during summer vacations on the NJ coastline. When my neighbor was taken to LA to visit this STAR, her granddaughter told her, it will be busy in that house, so don't get nervous.

What she found was beside the nanny, housekeeper,chef, valet, landscaper, accountants, pr reps, managers coming and going, and the STAR has these 2 little kids she adopted who live and thrive on all of the confusion while their famous mom and dad go through scripts, discussed potential deals. Whatever else goes on. My neighbor said, I wouldn't want that life in a million years. The house is gigantic but you don't have privacy and you barely get time to eat dinner with your kids. It was beautiful to sit by their pool with the gardens but I never saw them enjoying the pool because it is such a busy house. So that is Hollywood. Blah to that, I couldn't wait until I got home!

I don't know if Kate goes thru a bit of that, but I guess she does and the kids do. It probably is a busy house and when they do travel out of town, it is the only time they really are all together, on planes, in hotels, or walking around the zoo. It may be the only time they spend with Mom.
