Free Discussion September 2011

Please use this post for discussion about the Gosselins that doesn't have a better spot elsewhere.   Also please remember that while Gosselin discussion is fading (which is a good thing), this blog is for Gosselins only.   We will continue as long as Kate is seeking public attention for those who wish to comment.

Please pardon the mods that comments are very slow going through right now.  We are all very busy with other things and in fact I forgot last night that Kate was on.  I'm on a necessary trip to visit and help my parents and all the other mods are busy with other things also.

Watched a good bit of the episode tonight. Watching a mother unravel in front of her kids is not entertainment. The bad thing is that these kids think this is normal. The show is so over.

irish wonder said...

When has she not unraveled? The best one was screaming over ice cream melting in Florida in the summer. How unusual.

Did watch last night for the first time in a long time. What nerve to think that people who go to Mt. Rushmore are interested in her.

They're staring because you arrive with an entourage and a camera crew.

Most people don't know who she is or care, and no one was bothering them.

She is so full of herself.

Sidney said...

Did TLC finally realize they are paying some rediculous, noisey, rude person to abuse her own children AND her filming crew?"

Or did her filming crew say they would never be around Kart again.

Kart said, "This is so over."

Maybe TLC said the same thing.

-----
Ha! The woman who didn't want any used items for her babies thinks this couple would be dying to have these seven-year old chairs that have been used hard. I'm a big fan of second hand items, but it's amazing that she was too good for any used items, but it should be the other couple's honor to accept these. And Kate, I think you can find out this information (for the Philadelphia couple) without having to broadcast it over Twitter...but what fun would that be?

Iggy said...

At least she is donating the high chairs or at least she is claiming to.
Those poor kids, I can not imagine a 7 year old using a high chair. Some highchairs are made to grow with the kid and can be adapted to chairs, but not hers!!

Liz said...

Kate is going to be co-hosting The Talk soon.

I love that show and watch it every day when it's new episodes. I used their feedback page to tell them I'm boycotting any episode with her on it.

If she actually ends up co-hosting The Talk regularly, this could be a good thing. Maybe she'll hand over custody to Jon (because who wants to be burdened with eight, count 'em, eight kids in Hollywood?), and they can return to a normal lifestyle while she goes man-hunting and party-hopping to her heart's content?

Actually, I think the worst scenario for the kids would be to get stuck in PA with Kate fulltime. Kate would be taking out all her frustration and anger on those poor kids non-stop.

So yeah, let her go to Hollywood! I don't have to watch her, and the kids would be free. Unless, of course, Jon actually wanted something like...child support. :<

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

Just put in my 2 cents to CBS about Kate going on The View. I tried to be professional without barbs and snipes but I found it was too difficult and I couldn't restrain myself.

ncgirl said...

On Twitter, Kate seemed to be denying being on The Talk.

Mr. Mogul said...

just thinking about the fact some college offered her free college education for all kids when they were born. If she lives of the interest of the stashed dough, she should be all set.

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one that thinks this why. Everytime someone post they hope Kate never succeeds on her own, I think that I hope she does, and is never home for all the same reasons you have stated. The problem is although I want her to succeed and get her own show without the kids, I don't think it will happen. She just doesn't have the talent to carry it off.

hannah said...

the kids will never be free when the last show airs.

look at this

GM all.. Another successful bus drop off!” Kate tweeted. “Squabbling kids, exasperated mommy, but overall, all is well! You?”

irish wonder said...

Kate is not talk show host material. When she was on The View she was out of sync with the other women.

Even though I don't like her I was embarrassed for her.

There is no way she will ever host a talk show. TLC dropped that other show that never aired "A Slice of Kate" or something like that.

She is done.

Tiggersmema said...

I read Kate's twitter page (I don't "follow" her though) The teens there are getting together to organize a fundraiser, starring Kate, for St Judes & Ronald McDonald house. I wonder what is Kate's underlying agenda for this - trying to get TLC to film this "special" or trying to be the "giving-back" Kate so she will be picked up for some TV gig?

Elvira said...

just thinking about the fact some college offered her free college education for all kids when they were born.

This is another false rumor that took root on the internet and spread. The governor or lt governor of PA had college savings accounts opened for the tups, but did not fund them. They were there and announced if people wanted to donate funds to them. There are no guaranteed college plans for the children.

Jenny O said...

Per Hollybaby's blog about Kate temporarily co-hosting on The Talk:

our source says. “The Talk reached out to Kate and they want her to co-host for a few weeks after Kris Jenner fills in!”

The show did not renew the contracts of Holly Robinson Peete or Leah Remini for the upcoming season two which premieres on Sept. 6. Existing host Sharon Osbourne asked for two weeks off to vacation with her family and the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star is filling in while she’s away.
------------------------------

The Talk is a wannabe The View, and from what I hear, it's like the poor stepchild with much lower ratings overall. But Julie Chen is married to the network boss, so she gets her own show to keep harmony in their home.

If both Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete weren't good enough to boost ratings, Kate Gosselin with her 20 teenbopper fans won't be either.

Not to mention, Sharon Osbourne has been very public about her disdain for Kate. I just might tune in to see Sharon look daggers at Kate and then totally snub her.

The Talk is clearly floundering, and grasping at any straw. Kate is not the answer, but I'll enjoy them finding out the hard way that they are complete idiots for inviting her to co-host, even temporarily.

ncgirl said...

"trying to be the "giving-back" Kate so she will be picked up for some TV gig?"

That could be one reason for this insane Kate Konvention. Her public image needs all the help it can get. Teenagers are spearheading it. Will Kate even go though? She seems to like to toy with the fans on Twitter, and I just don't see Kate going unless she gets paid.

I'm still skeptical about her being on the Talk. Other future cohosts have been mentioned. Why the secrecy about Kate? Are they afraid anti Kate people will storm the studios? Time will tell if she's on there.

One foot in the sanitarium, other banana peel said...

Remember when kate said that anyone could walk up to her and find out what a nice person she was or something to that fact?

Does anybody remember? If she did, why did she freak out at Yellowstone.

I agree, Steve should of told kate to come on and go with him and when she was walking beside him, he should of told her to shut the you know what up.

He doesn't take up for those kids at all. He is just as bad as she is. He is there for the money only.

I twitted her and told her that she was so PO'd about steve not getting the slice of pizza from a hungry child that what are you going to do when he leaves you for good? watch out!

If she wanted to keep the pizza for the next day, she should of wrapped it in tin foil and put it in the freezer with her name on it and nobody would of dared touched it!

If I was Jon and saw my ex verbally abusing my kids like that, I would be beside myself.

mamasan said...

from Dr.Lillian Glass' email/newsletter:"[New post] Kate Gosselin's Body Language Way Too Happy Over Kate Plus 8 Cancellation." Dr. Glass feels that TLC has something more in mind for Kate. Too much money invested in her "brand" at this point.
I thought about that. Right, throw Ashley and Jamie under the bus, drop the kids, have a new format. Perhaps Steve is more involved than we believe. Lots of room for conjecture.

Thank you, Dr. Glass!

wow

Just think is she moves to hollywood without the kids how many are there? She will have to pay Jon child support. there is no way she will do that they will go with her and she will haave nannies. wow she will have to sell the mansion. does she know how much houses out there cost. Jon can also block the move. Bet the twins will want to stay with Jon.
Maybe she can just take the golden child with her

go away gosselins said...

I have to tell you, I actually had bodyguards and I couldn't tell you at all what their food preferrences were.

Steve is guarding her body, but he is not a bodyguard.

His wife is a flippin fool.

GO AWAY KATE said...

Well now, pretty obvious that Steve and Kate are a couple.

CLICK HERE

go away katie said...

But, perhaps when Kate says, "this is SOOOOO OVER!" Kate was actually talking about her and Steve's affair. She is deriding Steve for "scoffing" at her. Who does that with a "bodyguard"?! What a joke. They think we are all stupid. But, Gina Neild must really be the most stupid.

Jon told us years ago that Kate gave him walking papers because she was having an affair with Steve. Pretty obvious in the show on Monday, that it is true.

Why else would Kate yell at her kid over an employee? Why is she fighting for lunch for Steve over the cameraman? And just why is it that Steve's lunch is in with the rest of the family, while the other staff's isn't? HA! They are such liars.

I think Kate is giving Steve the same boot she gave Jon...when she says she is so "DONE!" Same words she used with Jon, her parents her brother....I do think she started talking about being ready for "dating" shortly after this trip.

SO DONE! said...

THIS

Is the best link EVER on Kate!

Payson48 said...

Can you believe it?? In 2 weeks the LARGEST RV SHOW will be in HERSHEY,PA. !!! What time will khate get there? Will she get a pink rv to match her phone?

dustilies said...

SO DONE, you are so right! That was great laugh, sorely needed.

Jimmy Kimmel sure has KG's number

kinman said...

So what does Kate have in store now? She is tweeting that "if ever there was an episode to watch, the finale is the one..you will all see why". A big announcement coming about her next tv gig? A big announcement about the relationship between her and Steve? LOL... She really is full of herself for sure. I am curious enough to want to know, but after its over, I will be glad. I guess they have another People Magazine cover this week. At least it sounds like the kids will be on it this time for a change!

JLR1952 said...

I think Katie Irene has had some sort of complex about never having enough since she was a kid. Kate latched onto Jon because she thought she would go places. He did alot of travelling as a kid, skiing with his father,etc. I think they were planning to raise Kara and Maddy like two entitled princesses, but then Jon's father died{their cash cow),and they had sextuplets! Kate feels entitled despite the kids. She's acting like a woman with no kids, all the hair extensions, boobs, high heels,etc... She says she's doing it for the kids, but, come on!!! What really floors me is how someone with such an OCD personality wants to be a reality star. She is such an embarassmet to watch. Guess she doesn't see what we see!

Duck said...

Up post someone said Glassman says Kate's body language says TLC had more in store for Kate and Steve. Maybe Kate will become a storm chaser and Steve will protect her from the lightning strikes like he did at the pool party! What a devoted body guard! Would love to see Kate chasing tornados and handing her book out to the survivors, telling them secrets about manis and pedis and hair extensions and how she survived 365 days of bed rest while prego with her 6 -yes, count them 6- wonderful children that she does anything for (oh, except spend time with-they are soo blessed). So what is no house or no electric compared to the horrors she lived through-here is a signed book and a photo-that will be $25 please! Oh yeah, and the heels do keep my feet dry in all this flooding! See how versatile I am! What show am I starring in next?

ratherbkayaking said...

She's begging again (still?) From Kate's twitter.

Did we miss one? I can't resend it (Sooo expensive!) but if u send another postage pd envelope I guess...so sorry.

Brummygirl said...

So I went to twitter to read and what I found disturbing was, one fan was arranging to drop something off to Kate.
She is becoming really familiar with these cuckoos, hanging on to them like a drowning man to a lifebelt.
Perhaps she never heard what happened to Selena Quintanilla, who trusted a fan too much.
I am not disturbed about Kate, but the children, how dare she bring strangers around them. Hopefully this will be a one on one meeting. She is also donating...get that DONATING clothes to one mother who is having a hard time.
Having been a habitual liar herself, does she not know these people could be anyone.
I do not tweet, otherwise I would have said something about this to her, or are these just empty promises she is making to these people for their vote.
She has also been intimating that there are other things in the works for her.
I only read so much of it, it is too time consuming, but what an eye opener how rabid fans can be.

Jenny O said...

Dr. Glass feels that TLC has something more in mind for Kate. Too much money invested in her "brand" at this point.
==========================

I agree that TLC has invested too much money in promoting Kate and trying to sell her "brand." If they plan to try to continue to sell this toxic sludge to the viewing public, then they really do have rocks for brains.

Seriously, I cannot believe TLC has any further plans for Kate, or else they would have said so already. Given they way they have edited these final shows, I am almost 100% positive they are kicking her to the curb, permanently.

What we need to remember is that tv is a numbers game. If a show is pulling in the ratings, it will say on the air, no matter how many people are in an uproar about it (Jersey Shore).

When those viewing numbers drop below a certain level, the show is history, no matter how much certain diehard fans love the show.

Kate has had two chances to create a successful show (J&K+8, which was very successful for awhile, til she kicked Jon to the curb; and K+8, which never came close to the ratings of the previous show but held its own for a short while, then slowly fizzled).

Now perhaps some lunkheads at the network think they could make a show about Kate and Steve - but come on guys, really? A show about a homewrecker and a cheating husband? Yeah, right. That'll sell to advertisers like hotcakes. Not to mention, neither one are likeable people - she's a shrew and he's a cad and a purse handler. They're not in the same league as Tori Spelling and her husband (which I'm pretty sure she took away from a wife). Even Tori, with all her privilege and pampered existence, is still more likeable than Kate.

Exhausted said...

I like Dr. Glass, but I don't understand how she can be reading Kate's body language as of late. Kate hasn't been on any interview (has she?) or seen much in public since the announcement of the cancellation. So how can Dr. Glass say that her body language reveals that there is still something planned for Kate from the network?

I wouldn't be surprised if there was...or if TLC will keep Kate from getting any other offers, but I just don't see how Dr. Glass knows this.

Kate = Syrup of Ipecac said...

Moments after hearing about the show's cancellation (heard from my daughter hours afterward) I checked Kate's twitter. Over the next few days (via tweets) I didn't get the sense that Kate was worried about her future.

I think she'd be in major panic mode if there wasn't something slated to follow K&8. Even if she has a few million stashed away, she'd still be borderline certifiable if she had no prospects.

Time will tell. Who really knows how far a reality show mom (with eight, count 'em eight kids) can go in the entertainment business?

Jenny O said...

She has also been intimating that there are other things in the works for her.
--------------------------------

I'm sure Stevie boy is desperately casting around for something, anything, for Kate and/or the kids. After all, they've been his meal ticket for years. If we imagine Kate is freaking out over the cancellation, I'm sure Steve is nearly as upset. He doesn't want to give up this cushy "security" gig and actually have to work once again.

However, the fact that Kate is encouraging her fans in their plans to have some sort of big event in her honor tells me that she is no longer under contract with TLC, or else they'd put the brakes on that idea. Secondly, can you imagine how lame any such event will end up being? I don't want to pick on teenagers, but even the best of them would have a tough time reserving a public location for this event, setting up sponsors, and somehow selling enough tickets to cover the cost of Kate's first class airfare, hotel accommodations, and lover boy's particular demands, such as foil-wrapped pizza and outfits that match Kates.

anotherchesterctymom said...

Holy Moly! I never really did twitter until the Casey Anthony trial...I followed the reporters. I have recently gone to Kate's twitter. I know you have all said this but it's hard to grasp til you see it for yourself. She just holds conversation with her fans...it's nuts! And she doesn't copy the tweet she's responding to so if you want to see you have to go looking for it. What mother of 8 has time for all that. She just posted a pic of breakfast and it's pancakes and bacon on PAPER PLATES.

She's come undone said...

Thanks for the Jimmy Kimmel link. That was perfect. I wish more people would use those horrible clips of Kate more often. She needs to be seen for who she really was and is. Watching that makes me marvel even more that she has fans. The truth (and sadness)of that clip though was what viewers (and TLC) did to those children by watching. I haven't watched in ages but I am so,so sorry that I ever did. I am now committed to being more careful with my TV viewing.

O-Hi-O said...

"Who would take over the running of things if your children grew up with no mind/feelings/will of their own."
(((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((

I think it's a safe bet that losing all that attention from tv and her various press tours is more scary to her than loss of income. The woman is a shameless and pathetic attention addict.

Not a fan said...

If she is going off the air and was cancelled then all the filming is over, right?

So why is Steve still mentioned in her twitters?

I think TLC is doing what I read, reserving her as the "real star" and letting go of the kids as they are at the awkward stage.

People love to watch a train wreck and she will always be a train wreck, who also makes money from anyone who watches her on TV.

Rainbow68 said...

The show was horrible tonight. Basically, Jamie and Ashley were fed up with Kate (understandable), but they were talking badly about her in front of her kids - They can't take it anymore, etc. - blah, blah, blah. Kate is who she is, but we don't need to see Cara reacted to someone trashing her mom. Kate's life is to the point now that she is almost completely cut off from everyone else but her children. I see her being very alone in a few years if she doesn't get some serious counseling. She hyper-organized everything (I do understand some of this - I'm an organizer), but she freaked over everything. She's lost Ashley and Jamie isn't far behind. I'd love to see Kate get some nice, supportive friends and learn to be a friend herself. It's sad and the kids don't look very happy at all. TLC is not editing as they normally do. Kate looks like she's having some sort of psychotic episode. I think that after next week, we're done with the Gosselins.

proudmama12 said...

Proudmama12- I have started to watch now that the show is being canceled the RV episodes, man I hope she watches that and sees how stupid she looks! She looks like a 2 year old having temper tantrums! The white water rafting part OMG would have tossed her over board if I was the tour guide! If you don't want people to notice you and take pics then don't do a reality show! Glad Steve told her he would not stop the person from taking the pic GO STEVE! The answer and question show I died laughing seeing Kate talk about her brother Kevin how she can't trust him she put him int eh "pile" of untrusted people. Who has a PILE? ONLY KATE! Maybe she could take a hint if everyone in her life keeps leaving I wonder why! Take a long hard look at yourself Kate! Being a Mom is stressful we all know that we get it but it's not a license to be a witch all of the time and be rude to others! No one owes you anything your not that special! She better concentrate on changing her attitude so her kids don't turn out just like her!

I hope TLC keeps her SOOOOOOO busy, that she lets Jon have the kids pretty much full time. Kate will be happy she's working on TV and the kids and Jon can live quietly and happily without her.

Just read on my MSN home page that they have ordered 100K PA residents to evacuate because of river flooding. I checked on mapquest and it is only an hour and a half north from the konpound.

Hope kate enjoys her new Audi TT, while people around her are suffering.

Nothing seems to bother her, even in her own backyard.

Shoka's Understudy said...

Here is the link of a picture of kate getting out of her Audi TT.

She is getting out, getting ready to "run the 10.5 miles" jog.

The car door is open and has a deep pocket for the big red wooden spoon.

Everybody thinks this car is for her and Steve only, but I think it is for her and a child for one on one punishment with the big red wooden spoon.

The photo credit says Chris at INF. Maybe they have it arranged for alot of pics of the car so maybe kate can pay for it that way and get it for free.

She's such a trooper!

BB Tito said...

Whatever happened to the "Twist of Khate"?

Kit said...

She has also been intimating that there are other things in the works for her.

Yeah, just like Matt Roloff, who is desperately posting "teasers" on his Facebook and Twitter about all the "big things" coming up that he "can't talk about" and trying to make a huge deal out of his 40th birthday bash at the farm...

No. One. Cares. Except for his merry (tiny) band of fanatics. And it's driving him nuts...Bwahahahaha...He's going to end up shilling that pumpkin farm and his moment of glory for the rest of his life, like the two-bit sleazy salesman he is and always has been.

The only difference between Matt Roloff, Kate Gosselin, JimBob Duggar, and Richard Heene is that the first three succeeded in their attempts to use some "schtick" to grab the brass ring of reality tv. All of them exploited their families shamelessly for the almighty dollar and (probably even more importantly) personal "FAME."

Thank goodness, the first is off the air, the second will be gone after one more travesty of a show, and the third is on a big world trip, which always seems to signal "the end" for TLC. Kind of a parting gift, so it seems.

joy said...

She's buys a new sports car that she can't fit all eight of her kids in. What does that tell us about Kate...

Shoka's Understudy said...

Jon did an exclusive interview with:

rumorfix.com/2011/09/exclusive-jon-gosselin-gives-kate-gosselin-some-tough-love/

And what if the Dancing with the Stars alum has to unload her huge farm home in Pennsylvania? Jon has absolutely no sympathy, “I don’t have a farm on 24 acres and the kids seem to have a great time at my house.”

Jon tells us he sees the kids “a lot,” but says a court order requires that he not be more specific. He also insists that he continues to pay child support.

Way to go Jon!

Shoka's Understudy said...

I did notice that kate had on a South Dakota hoodie on the RV trip. I figured that a fan of hers gave it to her when they arrived at the airport in South Dakota.

Shoka said...

Looks like the Today show on Monday and Wendy Williams 3rd season opener.

I guess it is too late to try to stop kate from the Today show, being pre-taped for Monday.

But, I made my views known on Wendy's Facebook page and at her website.

Still reeling about her being on the cover of People on the 10th Anniversary of 9/11!

Kit said...

Whatever happened to the "Twist of Khate"?

Haha - the ultimate twist - she was fired!!!! Bet she never thought it would work out that way when she was filmed offering her sage life advice to all those poor "schmucks" (in her mind).

The film reels for that show have probably been buried in a hazardous waste dump.

zoeyrs said...

OMG. On Kate's Twitter. Some superfan who is "worried sick" about her tweeted that Target gift cards are on the way. Instead of telling him not to do it she replied "thank u 4 ur kindness. It is nervewracking but u all no I will NEVER allow my kids 2b w/o. They r y I breath."

She's always gushing about how much she loves her kids, but she has such a hard time showing it. All they ever hear from her is how stressed she is. And, what kind of person tells such young children how she will work her fingers to the bone so they can keep the house and where they go to school.Why lay that on them? She probably has them scared to death that they're going to be homeless.

Oh, the problems these children are going to have as they grow older.

Exhausted said...

Wow, so she's going right back to her grubby ways? She is so into herself. Does she really think she isn't better off than almost every fan of hers? Really? But I guess if anyone is stupid enough to give her money, then go right ahead...

She'll Have Fun, Fun, Fun said...

The car door is open and has a deep pocket for the big red wooden spoon.

Why would she need a big red wooden spoon in the car when she can't take the kids with her in that car??!!

NOTHING we didn't already know! She is the epitome of 'The Ugly American' and to think tlc sent her abroad where she did her oh so wonderful performance as just that!

Jenny O said...

Right on Kit re your comment comparing Kat with Matt Roloff and JimBob Duggar. I think the Duggars days are numbered on TLC, but I bet JimBob has stashed much of that income somewhere. I doubt the kids will ever see much of it, but he and his wife will live quite comfortably.

There's nothing "in the works" for Kate except in her fevered imagination. Steve Nield continues to out-grift Kate, staying on as her "top advisor", i.e., "I'll take your money as long as you have it, and then I'm outta here!" He really will suck that well completely dry - and probably insist she dip into the children's savings accounts so they have nothing left either.

Then all Kate will have is Jon's child support money, which based on his current income, can't be an enormous amount.

(As to Matt Roloff - he's as despicable in his own way as Kate. I used to admire him in the early seasons, and there's no doubt he's been through a lot in his life, but he is a selfish, selfish man who treats his wife like dirt, his children like accessories (except the big twin, who he wishes he was), and spends money like a drunken sailor.

Did I hear correctly during her interview with Matt Lauer: "agreeance" ????????

kinman said...

I winced on the Today Show when she mentioned Jon and said that he is "satisfied with mediocre for the kids..a regular job, but I want them to have the best". I bet she did not earn lots of new fans with THAT line. Lots of her fans have mediocre,regular jobs and manage to get along and he pretty happy in life. She just can't say anything nice about him, can she? It would be nice if she could..just for the sake of the kids.

Mark my words - Kate's new website will serve the purpose that the first Gosselin {pre-reality show} website served: to garnish sympathy and freebies from the public

Glenda said...

Well Kate was on The Today Show one last time today and AGAIN trashed Jon for 'having a mediocre job and if he's fine with that that's ok but I want the best for my kids which is to be on TV' What a crock!

Tami said...

My husband thought I'd really want the new People magazine so he brought it home. It's strange how the portraits of the kids must have been taken at different times or heavily photoshopped. For one thing, Alexis has a totally different haircut in different pics but wearing the same outfit.

Jenny O said...

Kate is so out of touch with everyday American's reality -- does she have any idea how many people would be thrilled to have a mediocre job, or even a lousy one -- just any job at all???

Considering Jon's educational background and skills, he's doing all right to have this job. He's at least employed, and he's paying monthly child support.

Kate doesn't really care about the best for the kids, but she sure wants to maintain her standard of living. Since she can't magically make Jon start earning the high six-figures a year or more, and she doesn't plan to go out there and get a regular job herself -- where does she think the money will suddenly spring from?

I think Steve Nield is probably trying to find some money-making venture for her, but I'm at a loss as to what it could be. She has no talent and she's not very marketable. She did do a "celebrity endorsement" for that stomach exerciser thing -- but that was a low budget production and I've never seen it advertised on tv.

Her 15 minutes are up and she coasting on fumes, but it hasn't yet sunk in. Maybe when she starts getting dunned for the school tuition, it might seem more real to her. And $10 Target gift cards from various fans are going to make a dent in those bills.

SKB516 said...

Just read that Kate said she's worried about her devastated fans who must feel like they've just lost their favorite neighbor. Her delusions of grandeur just keep getting bigger & bigger. If there really are fans who are sending this witch Target gift cards, that is absolutely disgusting. I bet these folks have never considered helping out their local, non-"celebrity" neighbors who may actually need assistance in the same manner. But hey, why not show Kate that even her "haterz" have hearts & get together a big pile of used, non-matching clothes to donate for the kids! I bet she'd LOVE that. *wink*

Protect8 said...

Fastest lie ever out of Kate's mouth - I think. Having seen the Today Show interview from this morning I checked out her new blog which has a running scroll of her tweets. A woman asked Kate if she and her husband would be considered mediocre because they stay at home and watch television. Kate said she didn't say that - it "wasn't her word" and I assume she is referring to the word mediocre. Kate really, really doesn't get that people actually see what she does and says on television no matter how much she denies it.

New blog - new attempt at rebranding which she pretty much blew up sky high this morning when she offended the vast majority of the American population with her mediocrity comment. Go Kate!

Let's all see how fast Kate shoves the kids off to live with Jon now that they aren't bringing in any money for her anymore. I can't stand the way she keeps saying it's "all up to get" to raise the kids. And can she stop speaking in questions and answers? She uses clearly, basically, essentially, over and over and over. Stay out of the sun, Kate. You look leathery for your age.

Anonymous said...

Can someone tell me why Kate continues to say she never wanted the divorce? Am I the only one that remembers that before they forced Jon's mouth shut, that he said Kate kicked him out into the room over the garage and told him it was over? He said he wanted couseling, and she said no, it was too late.

Sasha said...

Am I the only one that remembers Kate ended the marriage? Why does she now go on and on that it was Jon that caused the divorce? He said that she told him it was over and kicked him out into the room over the garage. He wanted to go for counseling, and she refused. Why is she now crying about it all the time and saying she didn't want it? Does anyone else remember that Jon said that many times before they made him stop talking? Watch how fast Kate ships those kids over to Jon now they aren't filming anymore. Kates whining is all about her hoping someone will feel so sorry for her they will give her her own show.

Rainbow68 said...

Kate treated Jon terribly and still only sort of acknowledges it. I think it's because she isn't sorry and doesn't know what all of the fuss was about. I wish TLC could've put aside their differences and interviewed Jon. Ultimately, I shamelessly love the 8 and have enjoyed watching them. Now, I hope they can have a happy, normal life.

Payson48 said...

Kate was getting rid of Jon one step at a time. She said "I don't want to do this alone". Called TLC,for security, and here comes Steve. She said his family are long time friends...guess she forgot about that tonight when explaining about his arrival on to the show. Steve started traveling with the book tours and Jon stayed home with the kids=kate not alone. She replaced Jon with Steve.

I remember, I also remember that a lot of people including most of the press didn't believe Jon and supported Kate's story. I always thought Jon's version was closer to the truth.

readerlady said...

Rainbow 68 -- Jon said he declined the opportunity to be on the finale, and TLC confirmed this. Jon said he didn't want to be on TV.

Bubbles said...

My prediction is a return to her roots (the cultural ones, not the bad-dye-job ones). She will soon be mentioning how "humbling" this experience (losing her so-called job) has been and how she's realized she'd lost her focus on God. Then she'll be tweeting bible verses and listing her "prayer requests" on that website, much like they did on the old sixgosselins website. Then a book will be next, subject being "finding herself" and "rediscovering God's love." of course the book will be accompanied by a press tour!

Susan Square said...

I haven't spent much time looking for other forums until just recently. I wondered how others felt about the cancelling of Kate's show.

Well, now I need to wash my eyeballs and scrub my brain!

My goodness, the vulgarities some adults use is mind boggeling.

I don't understand X-rated language ever being a necessity.

Thanks, ladies. This blog can say it without worrying who might run across it.

I couldn't agree more with this! I think this is EXACTLY what is going to happen.

Reading news said...

Did anyone see the following quote on Shine at Yahoo? I had never heard of this and don't think it was ever mentioned on this board.

"The parents of Gosselin classmates complained about their excessive security presence. A Facebook group called "Jon and Kate Plus 8 Ruined Our School" was launched. "If you attend Lancaster Country Day School, and you feel that unnecessary changes have been made to accommodate the Gosselin Children, please join," reads the description."

ncgirl said...

"A Facebook group called "Jon and Kate Plus 8 Ruined Our School"

I've been keeping up with this mess for awhile and have never heard of it. I always wondered what effects the Jon and Kate saga had on the school. They say it's a very good private school, but there had to be problems. I read that a local claimed there was no bullying, but that is hard to believe.

Two of the Gosselin children did have school problems. Children are going to be children no matter what kind of school it is. Maybe with the show being over, the G's can have a good education and no fame nonsense. Interestingly enough, the local said Kate is not involved with school volunteer efforts which is not surprising.

Yes, Reading, but my personal choice was to consider the children's and school's privacy ... also, if such a Facebook page was legitimate, I would think you'd have to be approved as a group member ...

Seen her unravel said...

Unravel, did someone say unravel? Is this her real personality? Yes. From what we have seen being parents at the school, she is ignorant.

Quakerish said...

Kate is addicted someone posted. I agree. If she really is concerned about her children first, why is she on twitter and all over the place? My fear is for the children. Go away Kate, protect your children. Do people follow that bus to school? Is there security riding those buses? Kate and Jon better get their act together so those children are not harmed or some other students at that school. What a mess they have created for these children. Hope that Steve is earning his money protecting those children and stop worrying about escorting the Queen around in her 2 seater sports car. Never have good feelings about those children being so exposed to the world. Wonder if they like traveling because they get away from the people who stare at home and at school and know their location at all times. She is stupid to twitter every thing she is doing involving those children. Waste my time even writing, she and Jon will never 100% protect those children. Best thing Kate could do is move and hide those children for a few years and live a quiet life. Of course she would rather work at staying on the gossip sites and in magazines. What a witch.

Believe it or not, I watched a few clips on TLC's site of Jon & Kate + 8 Best Moments EVER (closure for an old fan?) Anyway, as I saw Jon & Kate discussing if the show would go on, and Jon expressing how absolutely uncomfortable he had become with "fame", I could definitely see how selfish Kate always was.

I remember it had been said several times, by Kate herself, (and as Brummygirl wrote on "The Finale") that if someone in the family had decided they didn't want to go on with the show anymore, or if other factors were becoming involved that compromised the family, they would stop fiming. Well, looking back at those clips, and knowing what we know now, it's so obvious that, at that point, Jon had told Kate he didn't want the show to continue, but Kate kept pushing her will and did not accept it.

While Jon was explaining the downfalls of the "fame", Kate kept butting in trying to rationalize it or making Jon feel like an outcast because he felt that way. I also noticed Jon, again, showing his reluctance to NOT continue with the show saying "they might be back, they might not", and then Kate pausing and asserting "We're working on it" (notice Jon's reaction after that comment!). Jon said he didn't like the reality life, and Kate just dismissed him altogether by saying well, that she loved it. And finally, as Kate proudly stated they'll be ready for Season 5, Jon hung his head back as if to say "I give up"! Well, we all know how that all turned out...Yep, Kate got her way as usual, at the expense of her family and her kids. (But I guess as long as she still has her bleached hair, fake tan, and that beloved shoe collection, she'll "make it work".

sglily said...

One thing more to note as a side to my earlier post...for those not agreeing with the praises of Jon, I don't think our intention is to praise him, but only to go back to that point in time where it was obvious he wanted "out" of fame, and out of the show and did in fact want a "normal" family life with his kids.

Yes, he went bonkers getting his tatoos, wearing his earrings, donning the Ed Hardy wardrobe and every other crazy thing that went on-and yes, he did do his share of spending the loot carelessly and selfishly! But I do believe that as a Dad, after everything that transpired, he does in fact want to be out from under the camera-and if given the chance to film his kids (for any amount of cash) he would not stoop back to that lowly place, where Kate still resides alive & well.

you know, I met Mrs. Duggar in a Wall Mart Parking lot when she said i am so sorry if my door hit your car.. I was shocked to see her out and about. She was so kind and sweet. She even took some time to talk to me.. She is as real and genuine as they come. I was very impressed! She was not showy or anything. She was such a lady! I know that we want to not like people we see on TV but, you just can help likeing her

Jenny O said...

This made me laugh when I saw it posted on BM's site -- a tweet by Jenna Kim Jones:

Kate Gosselin is here. Really trying not to let that ruin this for me. #Emmys
12 hours ago via HTC Peep

I had not heard of her, so I went to her Twitter page. She describes herself as a "comedian/writer/singer, Script P.A. at The Daily Show and an e-Harmony Reject. Also I'm Mormon. Let's be friends!"

also, one of the big time sheeple, LindaOriginal, gave a little rant about Kate's speeding ticket, claiming it had occurred "months and months ago" and was old news that "haters" were bringing up just to rehash once more. She was very politely corrected by someone named "Jane," who pointed out the ticket was given on August 9th of this year. Oh snap!

There was another one issued THIS September 11 on the PA Turnpike. Guess LO didn't know about that one, either!

Shoka's Understudy said...

Doesn't that make the total of tickets to 4 in one year?

She said in one ticket that she got at 130 AM that she was rushing home to her children.

Why didn't they ask her what the emergency was?

Did she need an escort.

Hopefully, her points will quickly add up and her license will be revoked.

Then PurseBoy can drive the kids to the school bus stop in the Audi TT.

sglily said...

O-Hi-O...You've called it right...What a new money-maker for Kate! Books, appearances and "motivational" speaking at women's conferences, all in the name of recognizing the error of her ways and wandering away from the priority of God & the Christian life she wants for her kids.

Let's hope we don't see Kate on the 700 Club sharing how she was awoken from a bad dream, of compromising her faith for fame. Yes, unfortunately, Religion DOES Sell.

New York State Of Mind said...

Maybe the officer did, but it wasn't written up in the docket. Not everything that goes on during a traffic stop gets noted in the final docket.

Brummygirl said...

I had never seen the original J&K show, Surviving Sextuplets and Twins, but compliments of our #1 Sheeple's site, I just spent time doing just that.
I can see the appeal for Kate's followers from those early shows, the kids were adorable and Kate actually worked and loved those babies.
A couple of comments stood out for me......
Kate stated that she was the organizer and Jon was the follower...Jon said "yes, I follow, I am a sheep!!" I guess that is how the Sheeple name became famous.
The next comment was when Kate said:
"There are ten of us to love one another and when everyone goes away and disappears, we have each other!" Yet another telling statement.
I also noted, that Kate stated several times that their house was too small for them all...grifting?
I noticed Jon did all the moving into the new house and bathed all the children as well as working.
Then came the greates gift of all as far as Kate was concerned, a free tummy tuck from the Glassmans. It is ironic to note that later, the Glassmans were to gift their daughter to Jon!!
Kate stated that all the bickering between them was due to stress and it was their way of communicating. At that time, it really seemed as if they loved one another.
Looking at that Kate and the *new Kate*, I cannot relate to how much she has changed, but after the grifting she is doing on the twitter site, one thing is constant.

kate is in the National Enquirer this week:

They talk about kate pitching a ton of ideas to a lot of producers, even her old TLC and not one bite from anyone.

There is a picture of her, she looks so scrawny and old and PurseBoy is right behind her looking tan and on the spot.

To me, she now looks older than Steve.

Is she trying to drum up interest?

"Excuse me" says Kate to the others in the meeting, I have to tweet my tweenies or they will be devasted!!" :)

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

The Bratz doll comment is priceless. From all the weight loss, she is starting to look gaunt and haggard, especially in her face. I believe Kate knows the only way to get those big legs of hers smaller is to diet, diet, diet. But the rest of her doesn't need to lose any more weight. The skin on her arms is starting to look drapey too. I still can't believe she is going to this extreme to keep up her celebrity image. Unbelievable. Such a narcissist.
