Free Discussion October 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.

I checked on the mycarolina website and here is the link to kate:

http://www.mycarolinatoday.com/2011/09/chick-chat-worlds-largest-afro/

They show a lady who has the world's largest afro then start talking about kate.

They really have her number. They feel sorry for the kids and Jon.

Adios, Kate! said...

I'm surprised that Kate hasn't considered a career in public relations or advertising. She could use her celebrity to shill on behalf of a local car dealership in her area or a local amusement park or minor league baseball team. Sure it would be a far cry from what she had before but at least she would be in the public eye (even if it is on the local level) and she would be earning money in a far more dignified manner than grifting.

Ok, I admit I've been thinking way too much about Kate "I'll do anything for money" Gosselin lately. (Probably because my "mediocre" job leaves me too much free time - LOL) Anyway, I thought maybe if I just got these questions down in writing, I might finally be able to get some peace. (Hey, it's worth a shot.) In no particular order, here they are:


1. How long has Steve been in the picture? I was watching the episode where they went to Utah the other day and was shocked to see Steve sitting behind Kate on the plane. I had no idea he'd been around that long. I tried Googling to find out when he started with them, but nothing came up.


2. I know not everyone thinks that Kate and Steve are having a physical relationship, but I absolutely do. For me the RV episodes erased all doubt. For anyone else who feels the same way, when do you think it started?


3. Why can Steve say things to Kate that she annhilate anyone else for? On the river rafting trip when he told her to sit down and she sat, my mouth was hanging open. If Jon had said that, she probably would have knocked him off the raft. What is the hold he has over her?

4. Do you think Kate is really "broke'? I go back and forth between believing that she has tons of money stashed away and believing that she is just dumb enough to have blown through it.


5. Why is she still living like the money will never stop? Is she really that flipping stupid? I know she is, but GEEZ.


6. Why is Steve still around? Who is paying him? Supposedly, he is Kate's "manager/advisor", but what is he managing? She's unemployed! And BTW, why the career change? Is the family no longer in *cough* danger *cough*?

If you read the entire fashion and beauty blog for the 5-minute face, it is signed by Deanna, her make-up artist. Kate isn't claiming that she wrote it.

She could use her celebrity to shill on behalf of a local car dealership

What would she say? "Hey, folks!" I drove this car 90 mph last week, and this time, I didn't even get a ticket!" or "Hey, folks! These people gave me and my eight, count 'em eight kids free box seats and free range at the refreshment stand, but you're only mediocre slobs, so you'll have to pay for your tickets on the top bleachers and your stale popcorn. Come on down and get yer popcorn!"

The problem with Kate "shilling" ANYTHING is that any credibility she might have had as a spokesperson is long gone. Her advocacy for a product would only ensure that people would be running to the nearest competitor. There aren't enough BabyMamas in the world to buy any crap that someone would hire Kate to advertise.

barbee said...

Deanna did write the article, NOT kate. But kate had stated that Deanna was 'helping' her out with the column. There we go again, kate 'does IT all herself' but she just has these 'helpers' for some of IT. Get off it, sweetie, we ALL know you're the laziest slug on the 'continent' (see, dumbo, this is using the word in context. And you can't even claim continent was a typo because we know it was just you using big words and not caring that they weren't the right words). Geez, ya can't act, ya can't talk, ya can't write. Exactly WHAT are ya bringing to the working in the entertainment field again?????? ??
(I love my sextuplet and twin ? marks).

Leigh Ann said...

I didn't even hear of Steve until maybe in the last year or so. But on her most recent q&a show, Kate said they had done a local TV show and an audience member or someone was making her uncomfortable, trying to get the kids to sit on his lap and stuff. She said then she felt like she needed security and they got Steve. They showed a clip of the show and the little kids looked like they were about two or three. So it's been a few years.

Tami said...

Exactly what I was thinking.She's not going to be an actress so eventually it's going to have to be a "real job" or something she can create like (what a joke)fitness or PR

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

Decent attempt at CYA, but how does she explain that Steve was basically Kate's accessory, traveling with her on book signings, etc., when the kids would be left at home? Was Kate fearful some audience member might ask her to sit in his lap?

As to the question of how much money does Kate have left -- that something I speculate about myself. She really isn't a smart person, nor one that cleverly plans longterm. I tend to think she has spent the great bulk of that money on herself and on her favorite "bodyguard", Steve.

The reason he is hanging around is probably for monetary gain. So that leads me to think she still has some money stashed away that he's eager to get his hands on. He may not be the brightest bulb either -- maybe he actually thinks Kate is marketable and will get another tv gig of some kind, and thus make good money again.

All I know is that they deserve each other, and the kids deserve to get the heck out of there.

May Kate and Steve end up making each other miserable for many years to come!

DONE! w/kate kreider said...

CWgrlup~ Jon stated in an interview that he and Kate stopped sleeping together in October of 2008...when the book was released, and they moved into the big house. This is also the time Stevo came into the picture.

Kate is attracted to Steve, because he takes care of her and DOESN'T take her crap. Jon needed to tell her to shut up and do it herself...then actually follow through with that. One can not be nice to Kate, she walks all over people who are nice. Then, she feels that you think she is as great as she thinks she is, so you "should" be her pet. As soon as Kate thinks someone is on the same level as she is...they are OUT! Kate thinks Steve is better than she is, so she still respects him.

Has anyone seen Stevie boy lately? I'm starting to think that he cut his losses and ran, no matter what Katie Irene says.

If you read the blog, it clearly is signed by Deanna, who wrote the whole thing, including the exponentially part. Kate even commented on twitter that her make-up artist wrote it. She didn't take credit for writing it, which is surprising.

tate said...

Someone mentioned Kate getting a job in public relations or advertising. Would you hire Kate to promote your product??? I don't think so. She has such a negative image and is so polarizing, there is no way most companies would want to be associated with her.

And, the economy is in such bad shape now that even people with college degrees in advertising and pr cannot find jobs in these fields. Why would anyone hire Kate who hasn't been to college and doesn't have any qualifications in these areas?

Maybe he returned home (briefly) to his wife, so she could do his laundry, before returning to lap dog duty.

Shoka's Understudy said...

Since kate has been exhausted for years, she needs to go to a General Practitioner and get a complete physical and find out what the cause is for her exhaustion.

She may have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Or just plain sloth laziness.

faline said...

The one thing that surprised me the most was the complete lack of planning for the future. She has acted like the gravy train will NEVER stop.
If she had any skills in math whatsoever, she would have paid for the old house (in E town), free and clear. No buying a million dollar plus home that you now have a huge mortgage on and no job. That would have been the smart thing to do. She blew it by being greedy and buying that house.

But both Kate and Jon acted like that house was beneath them. Why? it had 5 bedrooms and so does the house she lives in now.Don't forget Kevin and Jody were right there too. Another bonus for the kids.Keeping the old house as an asset and living in it free and clear as opposed to living in the mcmansion and needing the income: stupid!

Jenny O said...

+++++++++++++++++++++++++

ITA. This, more than any other reason, is why I think Kate does not have a huge amount of money stashed away somewhere. She believed (and probably still believes) that there is plenty of demand for her on television, in one capacity or another. Her self-esteem is off the charts, but she has no common sense or even much connection to reality.

She could have easily blown through nearly every cent of the TLC money, because in her mind, that money would keep rolling in forever. So why save? Why pay off your modest yet very nice home in the suburbs? No, she had to purchase a McMansion for top dollar right before the market collapsed, and now she's stuck with a huge monthly mortgage and all the associated costs of owning such a big expensive property.

Bigger stars (who have earned much more) than Kate have had to declare bankruptcy and return to humbler roots. Kate will end up there herself sooner or later, especially if she continues to ignore reality.

Rainbow68 said...

I totally agree about the house. It could've been mortgage-free. Perhaps they could've added on if necessary. There was ample room to do it. Save as much money as possibe. I would be willing to bet Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are saving like crazy. No show lasts forever.

I think one reason they may have moved was the show itself. I don't doubt the disruption of filming was causing more and more complaints to the local government of running a business in a residential neighborhood. Add on the complaints to the State about the kids work. So, they moved to a house with 25 acres hoping to slow down the complaints. Also, it met the critical need of having a separate living space for Jon (apartment over the garage), since they were not longer getting along as a couple.

This is my theory anyway.

fidosmommy said...

So now that the show is finished and the marriage is finished, Kate has no more use for that house. If she can't manage to clean it herself while she is unemployed, she's got too much house there.

Kit said...

From the Huffington Post article...
"Who wants to go back to a real day job after being paid to work three or four months a year. Everyone I have ever met on a reality show thinks it will never end. They quit their day jobs and assume they will become rich and famous. They do become infamous…[but] who is going to hire them for a real job after they have made a fool out of themselves on TV?"

I think the nature of these types of reality shows is that they attract precisely those people with this type of mentality. They perceive themselves as better than everyone else, and the rest of us as fools for not having recognized it all along. When they do luck out and get famous, in their mind, it's because they were entitled to it all along. So they have no realistic perception that it will end, because that's how things were always supposed to be for them.

People who are smart enough to recognize the pitfalls of reality tv either don't go on them in the first place, or they go into them with a very specific plan, and they get out once they accomplish their goals. For example, Bethenny Frankel has always been completely upfront about using RHNY to promote her brand and her businesses. The Kardashians knew exactly what they wanted from their reality gig, and got it.

The difference between them and Kate is that Kate only ever saw the fame and money. She never had a plan except "be on tv and be famous and get rich." Which is why she is going down in flames now.

Nancy said...

I am not a fan of Kate, but I understand her wanting to move out of the old house. The "adding on" of the twins' bedroom was a mistake; remember that they had to walk through the little girls' room AND a CLOSET to get to it? Because of that configuration, that room would not be counted as a bedroom when listing the house for sale... at least it would not be in my state. Still, was it really necessary to overextend the budget and buy the "mine all mine"? Let's see how Kate makes the payments on her "mine all mine".

LOL, I live in PA and almost every house in my neighborhood have a third floor bedroom just like that. It is considered a room as long as 1) it is heated and 2) it has at least 2 windows.

The one in my house only has one window so it is not counted as a room and is not included in the square footage.

ihatefrogstoo said...

I may be remembering incorrectly but the creation of the twins' room resulted in only one window and it was not counted in the county assessment as a bedroom.

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

I realized as I read this back I made an error. The bedroom doesn't have to have two windows (I have a second floor bedroom with only one window) but the third floor itself would have to have a minium of two windows. You probably are right though. It most likely still didn't count.

Just don't want to confuse all those people in PA that have bedrooms with only one window.

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

In PA, you cannot count anything in a finished basement or in an attic area in the total square footage of a house when you are listing it for sale, regardless if it doesn't have any windows or has a dozen windows. You can list it as liveable area, and it will add value to a home, but when it goes into the multi-list, it is not included in the total square footage of the home, although some do try to sneak it in there.

Sassypaws said...

Does anyone know if Kate has filed for unemployment compensation? Is she even eligible? Are the kids eligible to collect also?

Inquiring minds what to know...

Pony said...

Sassypaws said... "Does anyone know if Kate has filed for unemployment compensation? Is she even eligible? Are the kids eligible to collect also?"

I doubt it. I would imagine that she was considered an "independent contractor" rather than an employee. As a contractor, she would have no right to unemployment compensation.

Sure! Why let them see their father on their birthday or let him have any part in the day (sarcasm)

Techymum said...

Hmmm, interesting recipes on her website. It is obvious that she has zero skill in writing a recipe and instructions. (which leaves me to believe she is actually writing them). Second, they are not healthy in any way, shape or form. High fat, high sodium. Doubt she is referring to "organic".

The big kicker - in her cheese sauce, she writes 16 ounces of parmesan cheese. Are you kidding? That would cost approximately $25 to start with, if not more. I have been making cheese sauce since I was a teen, and this would just be plain yucky.

Keep going Kate - your true colors are showing bright and clear :-)

Not true. Finish attics are commonly listed in the square footage here. When they did the last assessment on my house, the assessor told me the "two window/heated" rule I discussed above. I have one window on my third floor and it does not count. My next door neighbor and the house acroos the street have more then one window and it's included in the square footage. i can go right to the county assessors website and see that. It shows a layout of every house and what was included in the assessment footage.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Actually, we are both right. If it has 2 windows/heat and is finished under a proper building permit it is no longer considered an attic. In my neighborhood most are call 2.5 stories (because of the slopping roofs most don't finisn off the entire floor). A couple down the street from me did manage to finish off most of it and are called 3 stories. So, people like me with one window have 2 story houses with finished attics, but my next-door neighbor who has almost the same identical room but has 2 windows has a 2.5 story house. Her identical house has an extra 300 or 400 sq feet in her country assessment listing.

Thank you. I think people are confusing assessments (tax purposes) with square footage in a multi-list when selling a home (market value). It is not the same thing, and the Gosselin's "old" house is old news - why does its square footage or assessment hold any relevance?

A guy on twitter posted a picture of him and Kate at a fancy ranch in Wyoming. I don't know if that's the same ranch they have been to for the show. With Kate, the girls, and maybe Steve, it would've been expensive. Maybe it was a comp because Kate is a big stah!

Kit said...

...saw Steve, Kate, and the twins at the Denver airport Friday morning. A b-day trip for the twins, maybe?

Hmmmm, wonder how a mom who is whining about how to pay her bills could afford to fly cross-country for a b-day???

BWAHAHAHAHAHA...whatever the reason for the trip, you KNOW Kate ain't payin' for it. If it ain't comped, she ain't going. So it must be a leftover goodie from her STAH days, or she's found some "gig" for the girls and will make them work for their "birthday treat."

Duck said...

Thinking outloud here... If you buy into the hair being comped, than it reasons the nails, tan, breasts -sorry, GOOD BRA- trips, cars, what ever else, were all comped, could it be that she is really cheap? Played the system, let TLC and others buy her all the stuff and she REALLY has been stashing away all the money her kids and her made? That means she could have millions. Thoughts?
And yes, I am enjoying a few glasses of wine. Thank you.

Elvira said...

The hair, yes, because it was from another TLC "personality." She was getting the tanning and mani/pedis done locally so I don't think they gave them to her free at all. The trips that were filmed were of course paid by TLC. The cars were probably bought by Kate. I'm sure she got as much as she could out of TLC and other people, but TLC would only go so far. They were paying her a salary after all.

I doubt Kate is making any money off her web site. It is probably costing her money at this point (hosting fee, design costs, etc). I think she is hoping to get advertisers etc and make money, but I tell you it won't happen as it won't get enough traffic. Don't visit it as the traffic needs to stay low.

The whole name of that site bugs me. Kate+my8 ... um, you did not get them all on your own Kate. They are only half yours. What about Jon? Such an insulting site name for Jon.

Love that this article is officially putting the nail in Kate's career.

No there's a thought. Isn't there a program called "Extreme Couponing" or something like that? She could be on that show, she could show how she has managed to have facials, hair extentions, fake tanning, manicures and pedicures, trips to exotic places, new BMW, new house, new solar heating, window and door screens, funny houses for the kids, free dogs, free trip to a dude Ranch, but only allowed for boys and an adult, free trip to NYC for a night out on the town and so on, all for free, why, because she is an extreme couponer. I am sure she could explain away all her extravigance on couponing. Wonder how many coupons she had to use to get the services of Purse Boy. Pity there were no coupons for decent food for kids, proper chairs, individual outfits instead of all the matchy matchy stuff she made her kids endure. Oh my goodness she is the Queen of Couponing.

SuzieO said...

about Kate loving to communicate... I don't think she meant that literally. She was probably going on about how she wants to be in t.v. and what do others in t.v. have that she doesn't and then was told: a degree in communications. after that Kate just loved to "communicate".

Jenny O said...

I agree - I doubt she's making money off her website. I have visited the site perhaps three times in total, but don't plan to check it again. And I agree, the name, KatePlusMy8, is offensive and indicative that she views the children as her possessions.

txmomof6 said...

Kate would be an interesting sociological study. It appears that something so damaged and stunted her emotional and psychological growth during childhood. It is also interesting in that she also has a sister with grifting behaviors, yet the one brother appears to be normal in behavior.
What happened to Kate, that makes her feel there is never enough money, control, cleanliness, clothing, luxury, etc.? Why does she have to have the best private schools, the organic meals, a mansion to live in, a fleet of cars, the first class vacations, etc?
It was reported even when expecting the six, Jon and Kate were without health insurance and adequate means to support twins, much less more children. Then, grifting continued, home improvements, van, cribs, etc..round the clock help..
It was later said (correct me if I am wrong) someone on this blog said that Kate did not want to use the trust fund Jon's dad left him, that that money was for Jon and Kate, and shouldn't be used for family expenses.
I just can't for the life of me understand how this woman thinks. Why would she think the twins, for their birthday, would prefer a trip out of state instead of a sleepover? What is so wrong with this woman that she constantly projects her unfulfilled needs upon her children?
If it my opinion that she has some serious mental health issues, and years from now, she will be ostracized from her children.To make it worse? As long as she has money, I don't think she will care.

STLmommy said...

I agree! She has all the qualities you hope to God your children don't have when they grow up. It's the insanity of her self-righteousness and entitlement that drive you over the edge with disgust. She's so out of touch with how her actions are perceived that she continues to display them, because it works for her. To that I've never understood!

Annie2 said...

I am starting to wonder if Kate uses the website as an excuse to do actual work. The things on the website are not impressive and should not take up that much of her time. I also wonder if she uses it as an excuse to not interact with her children.

I Think She's Crazy said...

So Steve is still on her personal payroll?

Since the bulk of the children were not present in Denver (Per the reports), how come the kids' body guard was not with the bulk of the kids? Who was guarding the 6 younger ble$$ing$?

I don't think Steve has ever been a bodyguard for the children. He has always been Kate's personal "bodyguard".

Justin Beiber is out of the country and Taylor Swift is no where near Denver,,,,according to her tour schedule....

Anyone one have more information?

This woman is a whack job, a nobody, an just a real dilusional wannabe celebrity. Go home an raise your kids lady YOUR NO STAR an to this Steve character your a disgrace to the male population man, grow a pair

Jenny O said...

Also...is Steve sererated from his wife and family?
============================

I've seen nothing official about Steve to indicate that he and his wife are separated. However, he's not really a public figure, so any info in that regard would have to come by some sleuthing (as in public family law court records in his district).

However, he certainly seems to spend a lot of time away from home, and in Kate's company. If he's as big a jerk as he appears to me, then perhaps his wife and kid(s) are thankful that he's gone so much. As long as he's putting money in the bank account so his wife can pay the bills, maybe she's enjoying not having the prima donna around the house complaining about who touches his precious food.

Brummygirl said...

Steve is now her manager not solely a bodyguard. What on earth he manages is beyond me as I see no media knocking down her door for road tours etc. Perhaps he advises her on tweets and bleats!!
Personally, I think it is just a cover for her in-house boyfriend. Just my opinion of course!!

I agree 100% It might have been (a tiny bit) more believable to have him stay on as security - just say that there is still concern for the safety of the family. Of course, I never thougt he was going anywhere anyway.

Have you taken a look at the obsession of the fans? Those needy ones who have to see her tweet on a daily basis, or they feel that something is missing in their lives? Have you read the tweets from those who are basically stalkers, each of whom is the Number One fan, who hang on her every word, who want to be her, who wish her children could be their children, who live near her, who have left gifts at the gate, who set up shrines to her, who have thousands of photo of her in their collections, who make YouTube tributes to her on a daily basis?

It's the stalkers who, historically, have been responsible for tragic events happening to celebrities. It doesn't matter if Kate is an A-list or D-lister, or ex-reality star. The fact is that these people idolize her to the point that, if she ignores them, they might take action.

In addition, it has been believed that Steve's job also involves keeping Kate away from both the haters and the fans - that at any given minute she could go off on them. She's volatile. He keeps her in line.

Kate has been frantically looking for a job ever since ‘Kate Plus 8′ was given the boot and by the looks of her recent blog post, it’s clear where her mind is headed!
Move over Rachael Ray because Kate Gosselin is coming your way! The mom-of-eight took to her blog to post two original recipes: Kate’s Cheesy Bacon Surprise, and Kate’s Last Minute Cheesy Chicken and Rice Casserole. We know that Kate rarely does anything without an ulterior motive — are you thinking what we are?Since 2009 Kate has been trying to get her cook book Love Is In The Mix published but it was shelved during her bitter divorce with Jon Gosselin. Kate has always dreamed of being a talk show host but Kate on her own is definitely not a sell for networks.

Do you think Kate would try to center a show around food, arts and crafts — a cross between Martha Stewart and Rachael?

Check out Kate’s recipes and tell us if you’d eat her creations!

Kate’s Cheesy Bacon Surprise

Ingredients:
4 tbsp flour
1 tbsp garlic
4 tbsp butter
1 cup milk
16 oz grated Parmesan cheese
1 box of “twirly pasta” (can use bow ties or med shells as well), cooked til al dente
8- 12 oz of gouda and or cheddar cheese (I used leftover cheese from a party platter that I had frozen)
1 pack of bacon, baked and crumbled
1 bag of frozen peas, steamed
Pinch of salt
Pepper to taste

*Use first 5 ingredients to make a white cheese sauce: melt butter in a pan, add and sauté garlic. Mix flour then milk until smooth consistentcy over low heat then add Parmesan cheese. Set aside.
Combine cheese sauce with pasta, peas, and bacon and mix.
Over low heat add and or other cheeses to the mixture (gouda is amazing! It will add little melted bites of cheese throughout!)
Salt and pepper to taste!
Note: on “leftover night’” this is even better than the first time!

Gosselin Rating: This received a perfect “10″ in my house which is rare!

Kate’s Last Minute Cheesy Chicken and Rice Casserole

Ingredients:
2 cups baked chicken
2 cups cooked whole grain brown rice
1 1/2 cups mild shredded cheddar cheese
1 bag frozen broccoli, cauliflower, carrot- steamed and finely chopped in food processor or by hand (can also use a bag of frozen mixed veges)
2 cans of cream of chicken
8 oz low fat sour cream
2 cups finely crushed croutons

*In a bowl, combine the cream of chicken soup, 3/4 cup cheddar cheese, and sour cream. Add
the baked chicken, rice, finely chopped cooked veges, and pour into a 9 X 13 pan.
Top with remaining cheddar cheese and croutons.
Bake for about 45 min on 350 degrees or until bubbly!
Enjoy!

Time Saver: I made two casseroles and froze one without the croutons on top!

Gosselin Review: This scored an average of a “9″ which is wonderful!

Shoka's Understudy said...

So, if kate makes the Cheesy Bacon Surprise, and only the kids are going to eat it, here is how each child's portion will be: Ingredients: 4 tbsp flour 1/2 tbsp flour 1 tbsp garlic 1/8 tbsp garlic 4 tbsp butter 1/2 tbsp butter 1 cup milk 1/8 cup of milk 16 oz grated Parmesan cheese 2 oz grated Parmesan cheese 1 box of “twirly pasta” (can use bow ties or med shells as well), cooked til al dente Based on a 16 oz. box, 2 oz of pasta 8- 12 oz of gouda and or cheddar cheese (I used leftover cheese from a party platter that I had frozen) 1 oz of gouda 1 pack of bacon, baked and crumbled 1 piece of bacon, crumbled 1 bag of frozen peas, steamed Based on a 16 oz bag, 2 oz of frozen peas Pinch of salt 1 grain of salt Pepper to taste 1 pepper flake Looks like she is still on track feeding the kids like she does at lunch, 1 hummus cup, 3 grapes, 3 crackers. I hope it is not true about her getting a spot on Food Network.

Annie2 said...

Kate has offered a nanny job to a few of her tweeters. Kate, dont you care about the safety of your children?

She also said that the kids cant get twitter account until they are out of her house. Most parents respect the fact that this is a new form of social networking and will let teens have monitored access to twitter and Facebook. I could see the safety concerns but there are ways to make the account private so strangers cant see what the kids are saying. This is her no phone calls from friends at home hissy fit all over again.

ChefkateNOT said...

The chicken recipe sounds like it came from the Campbell's website.

And, as far as the glorified macaroni and cheese, it is called "Rotini" not "twirly"

Brummygirl said...

Oh yuk!! If those are the kinds of recipes Kate will offer the public, then it will not fly.
It smacks of a mix of quick fix/tinned/package meals. The women of t.v. cooking shows offer so much more and from SCRATCH not SCRIMP!!
I personally dislike what I call mixed up blob food.

Debbie H said...

Couldn't find Hollybaby's post about kate on Food network....Can someone repost it???Surely nobody is really desperate enough to hire this loser on anything and I will be beyond surprised if she lands any job at all....much less a tv job...

Jenny O said...

LOLing at those recipes. Very poorly written. In one, she says 1 tablespoon garlic. Is that minced garlic? If so, say so!

And does she really mean 16 ounces of parmesan cheese? Isn't that an unusually large amount? If you were using the pre-grated package from Kraft, that would be the entire container. I remember growing up, we always had one of those Kraft parmesan containers in the fridge, and my dad would sprinkle some on his spaghetti. The container lasted for ages!

It would take a miracle for Kate to land her own cooking show. I doubt she could even wrangle a role as the unseen helper who chops onions and pre-measures the ingredients. The competition is fierce, with plenty of people who are personable, likable, and most importantly -- really know how to cook and share recipes that make people want to try them.

Billy C said...

how can anyone believe that this woman is some sort of grand cook that has all these recipes to share with people on her own cooking show...give it up lady your tv talent level is zero

J-Nut said...

One box of pasta to serve 9 people? I hope that box weighs at least two pounds!

And Katie dear, those of us who know how to cook know that cheese cannot be frozen, thawed, and still be usable/edible.

And your cheesy chicken and rice casserole? I can find that same recipe on hundreds of websites, as well as on any rice website.

You're pathetic.

J-Nut said...

Chefkate NOT said --

LOL!

Kit said...

Do you think Kate would try to center a show around food, arts and crafts

BWAHAHAHAHAHA! I can see it now...Kate makes a pan of pasta, bacon and cheese sauce (Seriously? Even Sandra Semi-Made can do better than that...), serves everyone 1/2 cup, then shows everyone how to make a craft, because it would be TOO MESSY if she actually let someone else do it. Except when she gets some glue on her own widdle hands, she shrieks about how "disgusting" glue is, and throws it all in the trash.

Oh, and if you don't like your cheesy mess, it is taken away from you, because "You get what you get, and you don't get upset." No grapes for you!!!

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

Thank you for clarifying that! When I read that she had frozen a tray of leftover cheese, my first thought was, "I've never heard of anyone doing that." I bet she doesn't do any cooking at all these days.

Annie2 said...

Cheese itself can freeze ok but cheese sauce can not. It will separate when you thaw it out. As for her recipes, they are nothing special. She used long grain rice in the chicken casserole but its still a recipe you can find on the back of a can of soup.

These tough economic times are hitting everyone, even former reality stars.

TV mom Kate Gosselin hit up some stores Thursday for a little shopping near her Pennyslvania home and RadarOnline.com has photos of her discount shopping trip.

PHOTOS: Kate Gosselin Is An Extreme Couponer!

Coupons in hand, the 36-year-old mother of eight hit up Target and Bed, Bath and Beyond to pick up cart loads of stuff for her family.

Since the end of her TLC reality show Kate Plus 8 she has said that she worries about the future finances of the family she heads up as a single mom without a job.

PHOTOS: Kate Gosselin Through The Years

“The scary reality is, 12-hour nursing shifts every day wouldn’t let me continue to provide well for eight kids, essentially on my own,” Kate said about returning to her previous nursing career. “When you think about it that way, it gets really scary.”

Well hopefully she’s saving enough using those coupons to help feed her eight children!

Life & Style exclusive: Kate Gosselin returns to nursing
With the cancellation of Kate Plus 8 and no new TV offers in sight, Kate Gosselin is returning back to her work as a labor-and-delivery nurse, a friend reveals exclusively to Life & Style.

"She just completed more courses to renew her license," the friend reveals to Life & Style. According to the pal, Kate is terrified about being able to make ends meet and support her family. "She has no clue how she'll continue to pay for the kids' private school and living expenses."

Although Kate, 36, has said she'd prefer TV and film work to delivering babies, she recently shared that she'd be up for any job: "The bottom line is I have eight kids to provide for!"

The night before last, kate was on twitter for an hour and posted at least 30 messages. That is 2 per minute.

Her kids were trying to get their homework done and she tweeted that Mady helped Aaden with his homework.

This makes me so mad. kate, that is your job, not your daughter's job.

Looks like kate is implementing the Duggard style of parenting. Have the older children raise the younger ones while the parent or parents do what they want to.

kate, you could of helped Aaden with his homework instead if you would have just put down your pink iPhone and quit chatting with your tween and teenage friends.

Shoka's Understudy said...

The pictures of kate at BB&B and Target are very similar to the ones with the Oliver Twist hat and the botoxed eyebrows. She seems to have either convinced Chris to come back and snap the photos or Steve took them. I hope she is not paying him out of the kids money accounts. Unless TLC is in contract to do it.

http://celebrity-gossip.net/kate-gosselin/kate-gosselin-easing-back-normal-life-552289

You must check it out.

Looks like Kate is picking up the kids from school. Her face looks hard and mean, and it appears she is "raking them over the coals" for something. Check out her body language, and the kids looking up at her, scared.

When I picked up my kids (and now my grandkids) from school, it was always smiles, hugs, kisses.
Those children are just adorable in their uniforms. Isn't she even happy to see them?

BTW Tony Dovolani was on The View this morning (Thursday) with Chynna Phillips. Joy Behar asked him if Kate was the worst dancer ever on DWTS. He wouldn't say anything --he just smiled.

Debbie H said...

No way is Kate going back into nursing...She is trying to generate sympathy in the hopes that someone will feel sorry for her and offer her a TV job...It always worked before(the hint dropping) and I guess she thinks it will continue...I personally think her luck has run out...People(and that would include "show business" types) now know her all too well and they just don't like her...Plus, it's hard to believe she is so stupid that she didn't take the golden opportunity of a lifetime and SAVE that money so she wouldn't HAVE to go back to nursing when this all ended...Oh, that's right...it was her "career" and she was going to ride it til the kids went to college...no NEED to save..lol...Well, welcome to the real reality, Kate...you are back to being nobody again...I have a feeling you are going to see the day you wished you had all those people you dissed for bothering you, taking a picture, staring and wanting an autograph BACK in your life...You had a great thing and you couldn't even appreciate it for what it was...You forgot you were NOT Angelina Jolie...talentless nobodies such as yourself who live off the backs of their kids don't have the luxury of dissing "fans"...and now your chickens have come home to roost...buh bye...I once heard a great quote you should think about..."Remember all the people you shun on the way up, because you will surely see them again on your down"...

ronlee said...

Kate.....you want to reduce your speding....send the kids to public school....since you already pay school taxes..... you could save alot of money....

How can you still afford to pay Steve? I read way back TLC was paying him $1,000 per day plus expenses.... how much are you paying him?

Kate....all good things come to an end.

Pleeeasssee said...

Someone needs to tell Kate that nurses do not work 12 hour shifts "every day". Is she really that dumb?

Jenny O said...

it's hard to believe she is so stupid that she didn't take the golden opportunity of a lifetime and SAVE that money so she wouldn't HAVE to go back to nursing when this all ended...Oh, that's right...it was her "career" and she was going to ride it til the kids went to college.
=========================

We see it repeated again and again: People luck into a windfall of one kind or another (win the lottery; have a hit song that makes them tons of money; or get a gig on a reality show) and the money starts coming in, more than they've ever had. And the temptation almost always gets them. They spend as much as they receive, and illogically believe it will just magically never stop raining money.

Yet it always does.

And it's happened to Kate, and she's desperately hoping that her many hints will somehow generate magic money for her again.

I think she probably has some of that money in savings, but her bank balance will go down quickly if she doesn't find a way to greatly reduce her expenses. It's simple math.

But I guess she's too busy writing fake recipes to face facts.

Cwgirlup75 said...

I'm pretty sure that Kate has ways to pay Steve that don't require money.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This is so true. Jon and Kate were handed a golden opportunity. They not only had an incredible amount of help in the beginning, even before the show, but they don't seem to appreciate any of it. The show just compounded everything and they forgot that they were Jon and Kate and not Brad and Angelina.

All the talks, the books, the picture selling, the free stuff as well as the TLC paychecks, could have put them on easy street for life. Unfortunately, they were not mature or wise and their greed got the best of them. Especially Kate.

Had they been more mature and wiser and less materialistic, lazy and greedy, they could have had enough money put away not only for college for the kids, but they could have bought a couple of acres, built a nice house, not a mansion, but nice and lived a comfortable, albeit middle class life. Jon could have kept his government job and Kate probably could have stayed at home with the kids. The kids could attend public school or even a cheaper private school. There is no need for all the excess and expense she seems to feel she is entitled to.

In the end, the kids will have nothing to show for all the time they spent filming. Kate always seems to think that she shouldn't have to spend her own money on her kids, so I won't be surprised to hear in 7 years that there is not money left for college and that the kids are on their own.

Nurses work in a wide variety of settings and there is no reason she has to work 12 hour shifts everyday. My friend has 6 kids all 1 year apart and she works as a school nurse. The problem is that reality television is an oxymoron. If it is reality, it isn't television and if it is television, it isn't reality. These shows give the participants and inflated sense of how important they are. But most of them are talentless and once the show ends, life goes back to the way it was. Why these shows are even on is beyond my comprehension. You can't develop a career in the media with no talent and no training just because you had HOMs and someone thought it would be a great idea to put you on TV. That doesn't mean you have talent. All it means is there is something freakish about your life and that they want to exploit that detail. I don't think most of these reality show people realize that.

Jon has adjusted back to normal life and Kate will have to at some point regardless of what she wants. She will do what she has to do, just like the rest of us perhaps this whole experience will help her to mature, grow up and start being the mom those kids deserve to have. They don't deserve mansions, trips and the best of anything anymore than any other child does, but every child does deserve loving parents.

Brummygirl said...

Somehow I cannot believe that Kate has no money. She was too thrifty and don't forget, all those treatments, hairstyles, clothes, tanning were all freebies.
I can understand that she is getting worried about not having the continued salary to carry on the lifestyle to which she has become accustomed, but I still believe she has money stashed away somewhere that is *hers all hers*. Factor into that, that Jon does pay towards expenses.
The pleas of being broke and going back to nursing (which she denied) are just a ploy to garnish t.v. gigs. I don't think it is about the money, I think it is about her not fading into anonominity!

Elvira said...

Not everything was comped. The things like tanning, mani/pedis, and such done locally came and still come out of Kate's money.

SuzieO said...

I have money put away that I consider my life savings and while I'm not sure what I will do with it I do know that I will not use it to pay my bills or live off unless I absolutely have to. There have been times when my income suddenly stopped and I considered myself broke because spending my savings was not an option so as far as I was concerned I was broke. Maybe this is her situation too. Maybe she feels broke because the money she put away is not an option for paying bills.

Betty said...

But considering oneself "broke" while having money in the bank that a person chooses not to use is one thing. Announcing it to the world in hopes of getting people to give her things, is quite another.

SuzieO said...

I have no doubt that her intentions are not honorable when she says she is broke. I still gag when I think of how shameless she has been in the past with her begging even though she was getting soooo much!!! I thought maybe I could shed some light on the ongoing discussion of whether she has money saved or not. Personally, I don't believe she spent it all but she has always wanted to live like she is rich and wanted to live like Beth and have a house like Beth and I can't picture her going backwards without a fight. I think she will look for a rich man although why any man would want her is beyond me.

eileen said...

I agree with those who say Khate has plenty of money stashed away for herself. She just wants things handed to her without working for it.

My sister is a nurse and there are so many options in schedule for nurses that dear Khate could find work most anywhere for good $$. IMO she will never return to real "work".

Anitia Coffee said...

Any good mother, or parent for that matter, worries about how they will provide for their kids. Miss Kate, however, is not a good mother....IMHO.

She has set the atage for them tp be bullied in school - for giving the okay for the potty training to be broadcast, embarassing the dad every chance she got, and still - to this day - dressing the kids alike. Cute when they are babies, but c'mon!

Good parents put the welfare of their kids above their own needs. How many of us, especially in today's economy, have put off buying new clothes, fixed the car rather than buying a new one, etc....but Kate seems to put herself first. Not just with the manis/pedis, but the tanning...as a nurse she should know that tanning is so dangerous, but for her the long-term outlook doesn't matter....she wants to look good NOW....so what if melanoma takes her when the kids are older and might need her?? That house is a WANT, not a NEED. And don't even get me started on the Audi.

Kate could have had a gold mine on her hands. She started with the books, and could have started a clothing line. She would have reaped the benefits of that and not had to work, but for that harpy shrew, it would have cut into her "me" time.

May the Good Lord help the patient who has Kate for a nurse, if she chooses to go back to a mediocre way of living like the rest of us. Nurse Ratchet would be afraid of that woman.

God help those kids. They had no say in becoming "child stars"....and we all know how THAT can turn out - Dana Plato, Cory Haim, etc.....

If she needed to be tanned to be on a show, such as a good base tan for one of the NC episodes, or to represent TLC at an event, then it was comped. TLC even paid for her dry cleaning when one of her outfits or a kid's outfit was worn on a show.

Shoka's Understudy said...

Just went on twitter and kate has been on non-stop since Thursday. I tried to count them, but it was giving me a headache, because they were so many, page after page since Thursday.

A young girl, I think 11 yrs. old, sent kate a package with chocolate and cards from England for Mady and Cara for their birthday.

kate has never met this little girl. She accepted a gift and ate the contents herself, supposedly along with Mady and Cara.

Why would you accept a package from someone you never met before and eat the candy that is in there and give it to your kids?

Why is she always putting her kids in harm's way?

The internet is so dangerous these days you cannot trust anybody, unless you personally know them or related to them.

I twitted her and told her why did she allow herself and her daughters to eat candy from a stranger, even though it is supposedly from a child?

I told her that she was crazy and that she should of let Security Steve taste test it first.

This is what the Royal Family has done for hundreds, thousands of years

kate thinks she is royalty, don't you know!

Shoka's Understudy said...

kate tweeted that they were going to make a cake for Shoka's 3rd birthday on Tuesday.

I can't believe it has been 3 years they went to the breeder and got Shoka and Nola.

I remember kate running in the dog pen ahead of the kids with her high heels and grabbing them and loving them and the kids going nuts trying to get at them.

Boy, her looks have changed drastically from that day until now.

Doesn't look like the same person.

Anitia Coffee said...

Hmmm, interesting recipes on her website. It is obvious that she has zero skill in writing a recipe and instructions. (which leaves me to believe she is actually writing them). Second, they are not healthy in any way, shape or form. High fat, high sodium. Doubt she is referring to "organic".

The big kicker - in her cheese sauce, she writes 16 ounces of parmesan cheese. Are you kidding? That would cost approximately $25 to start with, if not more. I have been making cheese sauce since I was a teen, and this would just be plain yucky.

Keep going Kate - your true colors are showing bright and clear :-)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When they were in the old house Kate made the statement "If you have to follow a recipe then you're not a real cook" Now she is putting recipes on her website?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Those pics just break my heart.... There are 3 that caught my eye. The first is when the guy in the white SUVid driging by, the second and third when she has her hand on the side door handle...the boys look so sad, and look like they are about to cry. Those kids have enough challanges - Lord only knows what is said to them during the day, and the one safe place to go at the end of the day should be home - but to them its a museum. "Mom" should be their superhero, especially after not seeing her for 8 hours. She looks like she is yelling at them for something that is so trivial.

And Kate, yes, we all know that you have a good (albeit store-bought) figure. Enough with the revealing tops, especially when you are around your sons. She reminds me of another attention-seeker, Madonna - to this day she shows off her toned arms, which looked like a skinned cheatah. Anything for attention I guess...but those kids don't want a fashion model/movie stah/talk show host. They want their mom. Its a shame that she can't provide that.

Kate, you are a sick, self-absorbed person. Be a mother for those kids, not always camera ready. You have cut almost everyone out of your life - parents, sibs, hubby, and its only a matter of time before yours kids ignore you too.

What a shame.

Just saw on twitter....Kate just came home from church??? where does she go? to the one where her father is a pastor....

Do you all believe she goes to church with all the kids?

Also she is looking for her 60,000 follower????

Where are all the people who tweet her? I can only see a few....

Did She Or Didn't She? said...

kate has never met this little girl. She accepted a gift and ate the contents herself, supposedly along with Mady and Cara.

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

Kate SAID they were eating the candy. When has she ever told the truth? She could have just been tweeting that to get the child off her back since she was tweeting her so often wondering if the package got there. Kate may have just thrown it into the trash, unopened.

I read that also. Isn't it interesting that now she is off the air and the gravy train has stopped she is now back in church. She didn't bother going during the last couple of years her "star" was on the rise. Making excuses in interviews..."its just too hard now without Jon" and "we try to go but its really hard with eight kids and just me". She didn't go before because she didn't need "the church". In my opinion, to Kate, church = love offerings and gift cards. Its not about a spiritual upbringing for her kids.
Kate goes to church when she thinks she can get something out of it, and that "something" has nothing to do with religion or spirituality.

Asking for donations and gift cards again is right around the corner. JMO

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

Sadly, there will be some churches and some well-meaning individuals who will invite Kate to speak at their church, and then donate money to her in the belief that she is deserving of their charity.

I still remember some years ago, when Jon and Kate were still doing their "love offerings" tour of churches, someone posting here at the time wrote to one pastor, urging him to re-evaluate his church's decision to pay them a rather large speaking fee. The reply from the pastor was on the curt side, basically telling the person to "mind your own." I wonder how that pastor has reflected over the years on that wasted money that could have been better used for something the children of the congregation could really use.

Nameless for this said...

I remember that pastor and how rude and willfully ignorant he was. At the time I considered writing his bishop and regret that I didn't. His terrible attitude was a contributing factor in my leaving that denomination.

fidosmommy said...

Do I remember correctly that Kate once said that the Gosselins were too famous to go to church? It was several (many)
years ago.

Funny how Presidents manage. Ronald Reagan sometimes attended a Presbyterian Church in California. He was treated like every other parishoner...well, except for the Secret Service detail, which would certainly draw attention. I believe Jimmy Carter got himself to church, too.

The Queen of England goes. People know who she is. She's fairly famous over there in the United Kingdom.

I guess Kate's fame goes beyond anything we ever imagined.

barbee said...

what is funny about her church attendance is that if you read it carefully, it says, 'when I have the kids and we are home' we attend church'. That would lead one to think that when the kids are not there SHE does NOT go to church. What, afraid no one will recognize the overtanned, overbleached blonde with the big boobs without the gaggle of kids?

That was I who contacted Roswell UMC and spoke to the associate minister. The senior minister wasn't in charge of this 'event'. The associate minister left the church not long afterwards and from what members tell me, he isn't missed! But, my MIL is a member there and was very embarrassed regarding those events. She wasn't the only one who felt that way. Thanks for the memories! Glad Khate and the kids are off the air.

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

Just checked out her site and the photo of the pizza. It offends me that Kate has used nothing but disposable dinner wear since she's had all those kids. Can you imagine the cost and waste involved with paper plates 3 times a day, 365 days a year for 8 kids? It's offensive to me. She can go to hell if she thinks I would do it too if I had all those kids. Makes me dislike her for just one more thing. Lazy beeotch. She's not working all day, she has a dishwasher and a cleaning lady. Unbelievable. Just unbelievable.

Shoka's Understudy said...

Another thing, which I do not want to happen to her, but what if she gets diagnosed with something, that has to have treatment and is curable, but can you imagine the media tour, the crying, the begging of money, the paypal accounts, I am fighting for my kids to stay alive!

oh, dear.

Shoka's Understudy said...

Happy 3rd Birthday Shoka!

You are such a good boy to Mady, Leah, Hannah, Joel, Alexis, Cara, Colin and Aaden.

Thank you for being their friend, confidant and guard and playing with them when kate is on the prowl.

Your a hero in those kids eyes and we know they love you very much!

Happy Birthday to you Shoka!

Love from Shoka's Understudy

Elvira said...

The kids are all old enough to load and unload the dishwasher. They should be allowed to eat from real dinnerware. Maybe Kate doesn't own any?

I agree those "fajitas" sound more like enchiladas. You don't roll up and bake fajitas in cheese and salsa. On that note can she not make something that doesn't have cheese in it?

Shoka's Understudy said...

An article about kate's driving, calling her "Lead Foot" in the National Enquirer.

http://www.nationalenquirer.com/celebrity/lead-foot-kate-gosselin-may-endanger-children#.Tpb8W72DH_4.twitter

It said that Jon has lectured her about it.

I would of loved to been a fly on the wall for that one!

Jenny O said...

Quote from the Enquirer article:
"In the incident where she was caught going 88 mph, Kate explained to pals she was racing home from a business meeting at 1:37 a.m. to be with her kids."

Next time I'm out partying til 1:00 a.m. or later, I'll have to remember to refer to it as a "business meeting." Secondly, her children were presumably in the care of a nanny or babysitter, and sound asleep by 1:30 in the a.m., so there was no need for her to rush home. She already missed their bedtime.

WonderButton said...

Re the Enquirer article:

She had seriously better slow down. Again, she's in an area with lots of winding roads and Amish buggies, Amish CHILDREN walking/riding scooters along side the roads. This is a recipe for disaster.

An Audi roadster is NOT the car for a REAL MOM. Driving with wedge flipflops on is truly hazardous. Get one stuck under the brake pedal and you're done. I hope she takes them off and puts them in the passenger seat when she's driving. And did anyone else notice how filthy her feet were in that picture?

If she keeps it up, she'll possibly lose her licesnse for a while. In PA, you can get points for driving that many mph over the speed limit, as it's considered reckless endangerment. Get enough points, and you have to give up your license for 90 days or more.

Proud Grandma said...

In the Enquirer article, I didn't notice here feet were dirty, but I did wonder how many toes she has.
Also, she is a compulsive cell phone user and probably texter. Hope she isn't doing that while driving. Here in Alberta we have a "distracted driver law" and use of cell phones while in charge of a vehicle is illegal.

Shoka's Understudy said...

I am confident she is pretty close to losing her license if she gets one or two more speeding tickets or infractions.

She should of already had it revoked because of all the handicapped parking spaces and the fire lanes she has gotten away parking on with for years.

The higher she is clocked speeding over the limit, the more quicker the points add up.

The picture of her getting out with her wedge flip flops on and her foot turned, it was very dirty.

It looked so bad that I thought it was her skin turning because of the tanning.

There is a video on youtube that someone took driving about a mile from her house and there is a hairpin curve with a sign that said IIRC, 20 mph with a turn arrow.

And the video continued all the way to the konpound and past it a little.

Isn't traffic tickets public record, isn't there a way we could find out?

Shoka's Understudy said...

I can't imagine kate coming home late at night on that road, speeding with that hairpin curve with that 20 mph sign, just up the road from her.

That just gives me chills thinking about it and the pain those poor kids would go through if God forbid something happened to her in that little sports car.

kate, please slow down.

Shoka's Understudy said...

Remember when kate was fussing about the pizza being handed to Steve and she was fussing with Jamie.

When kate was saying Steve doesn't eat this, Steve doesn't eat that, when she said Steve doesn't eat salad, she seemed almost apologetic and sympathy toward Steve because she eats salad.

Didn't kate say that she doesn't eat pizza? Does she make her one of the pizza's on pizza night?

I just can't see her having that much patience dealing with all the kids picking out what they want, putting them in the oven, putting up with all that activity in her face.

I just think it is another one of her big whopper fibbing stories.

kateisblech said...

I just saw the photo in the National Enquirer and those flip flops are definitely not made for driving.

Also, notice how she is pulled up to a curb and the parking lot is in the background? She still feels as if she does not need to park with the rest of the folks. Just pull up close as she can because she is so special.

I hope she drives more cautiously with her children in a vehicle.

Shoka's Understudy said...

Just saw a tweet from Jon to the little girl who sent the chocolate and cards to Mady and Cara for their birthday.

He apologized to her for backlash that she received and he thanked her for her kind gesture towards the girls and told her to have a nice day with a smiley face.

Just hope the little girl is the real deal.

Is that where she got the ticket, on that curve?

kateisblech said...

News out this morning from The National Enquirer is that she left the kids alone in the van while she spent 15 minutes waiting for takeout. She had Alexis with her, but the other tups plus a twin stayed in the van.

She NEEDS a bodyguard, but she is willing to leave her children unattended in a parking lot? wow ... just wow.

I know some people leave kids alone in vehicles, but probably never 8 all at once who could get in to all sorts of mischief or be kidnapped.

Shoka's Understudy said...

I don't think kate got the speeding ticket there, at the curve, she got it not even near her home.

Came across the family photo shoot in a pumpkin patch. kate says, the kids are all happy and smiling.

I looked at 10 pictures of the kids, I counted all of them and only one was smiling, and I think it was Hannah. The boys had all their heads down and was staring zombie like, aaden's head was up and just a stare was on his face.

She was all made up with hair and makeup hair blown out and curled professionally and she had on a skinny tight pair of skinny jeans.

She was dressed like a teenager and I know she couldn't breathe well with the jeans so tight.

RONLEE said...

(snipped) INF Daily caught up with Kate Gosselin and her twin daughters Mady and Cara as they indulged in an afternoon of shopping at Old Navy yesterday. Unfortunately it doesn’t look like it went very well – Kate was yelling at the girls as they left the store, and Mady and Cara look visibly upset. What could possibly have gone on during that short span of time in a clothing store that led to that kind of yelling?

I say this because of her mind-boggling 16 OUNCES of parmesan cheese. You wanna talk about SALTY? Yeesh. No way can that be right. No way.

Looks like Kate is headed to Australia.

"Kate is slated to attend 'Steve Irwin Day Gala Dinner' on November 12 in Brisbane, Australia, where "LUNCH WITH KATE GOSSELIN, STAR OF KATE PLUS 8 A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for you and 9 friends to dine with Kate Gosselin at the multi-award winning Chalk Hotel in Brisbane, plus a signed copy of her book" will be auctioned off."

http://www.steveirwinday.org/?p=gala-dinner

Awwww. A nice, romantic getaway for her and Steve. *BARF*

Annie2 said...

Where did the money for that photo shoot come from? It was all fabricated on her property so she not only had to pay for a photographer, she also had to pay for the hay, flowers and pumpkins. She also had to pay for makeup, hair and matching outfits for her kids. How can anyone believe that she is poor? Most families go to the pumpkin patch and use their point and shoot camera to get a nice photo or they pay to get a souvenir picture. They may also go to sears or walmart and get one done. They dont pay to get a set made in their backyard! I do know of a few families that have pictures taken in their backyard but its in their garden that they spend all summer tending. Its not bought just so they can have a nice picture.

The article said that she had 11-year-old Alexis with her. Either it was Alexis, or they thought it was Alexis, and it was one of the twins.

"Unfortunately it doesn’t look like it went very well – Kate was yelling at the girls as they left the store, and Mady and Cara look visibly upset."

I didn't see that she was "yelling" at the kids. This was just Kate's normal, nasty expression when she talks to the kids. She may have been reprimanding them about something, but it didn't look like a scream-fest.

Just Down The Road In Berks County said...

Is that where she got the ticket, on that curve?



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

No. Kate lives in Wernersville, Berks County. She got the ticket on Route 222, north of Lancaster, about 40 minutes from her home.

kateisblech said...

Please tell me that Khate owns the 2+2 version of the TT Audi and not just the two-seater model.. otherwise, I am truly sickened that she would take out the twins and have them both ride in one seat. Is that not against the law in PA? There is now photographic evidence of her endangering her children twice in two days: leaving alone in the van, driving with two kids in one seat and only seat belt between them.

She is a complete and utter idiot. I hope the cops visit her home and have a good talk with her about how many people belong per seat in a car.

I can just see her in there with them and they are trying to shop, hollering at them to hurry up that she had things to do and was trying to move at a rapid pace.

She's always speeding, herding them like cattle to the corn maze for 20 minutes then leave.

We see her in the photos with the kids, she is getting worse and worse.

I think Mady or Cara has a computer, maybe they could download Skype and they could see and talk to their dad on a regular basis.

Maybe Jon could fix it up for them so he can.

Brummygirl said...

In the Pumpkin Patch photos, even as she is pulling one of the kids' arm out of its socket, she was smiling into the camera. Where were all the happy smiling faces.
Not sure what the pointing was about...."Look kids, is it a plane, is it SuperMom?"..don't think so!!!

kateisblech said...

That auction item for the Steve Irwin banquet on Nov 12 will be a HUGE flop. How much is someone going to pay for lunch with a has-been Mom?

Kate does not live in Australia so they have to account for the cost of getting her there, etc. before they get any profit from this auction item.

It does not say Kate is attending on Nov 12... my bet is that the lunch will be planned after the so-called lucky winner has bid on the lunch.

I am so revulsed by her today that I had to send some tweets. I have never felt inclined to do so until now.

Just My Few Canadian Cents said...

RONLEE said...

I think it's more likely that SHE pays Radar to post stories and pictures about her and the kids.

Elvira said...

Kate isn't listed as attending the fundraising gala dinner. One of the auction items is lunch with Kate for the winner with a group of friends and a signed book. If they were smart they'd have a minimum to cover Kate's air fare and hotel. Unless Kate has changed mightily, that is a money loser. She surely isn't planning to spend her money on a first class ticket to Australia.

Jenny O said...

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

I'll be curious to know how that particular auction item does.

How much would airfare be for Kate and 8 kids, plus 2 nannies and Steve, to fly to Australia? It would be more than anyone would want to shell out.

I predict this turns out to be a dud. Maybe someone will simply suggest that the money they bid on the meal be donated to the cause, and Kate and the kids can stay home.

Jenny O said...

Oops, want to correct myself. I see on re-reading that the auction item is lunch just with Kate. So the airfare costs would be for just Kate and her favorite purse holder, Steve. But round trip first class tickets to Australia for two is still a lot of money.

Shoka's Understudy said...

There is no way she is going to take those kids out of school and drag them to AU for a auction and she is going to sign her book that anybody can purchase for $1 in the Dollar Store.

Have lunch with kate with the winner with some friends? Watch kate the salad Queen eat her salad and Steve pizza slice Neild eat his precious slice of pizza.

On dragging the kids, she is so vindictive and spiteful, she would do it just to hurt Jon.

Maybe she and Steve will go by themselves and go swing by NZ.

They (NZ) have been having constant earthquakes for several months.

hannah said...

If she leaves the kids will stay with a nanny, I bet. Let them stay with Jon. I am sure he can work his hours out for the time hes with them.

Kate's Audi is the TT coupe (hard top). It has the back seat. The Audi TT convertible does not.

Sassypaws said...

Which book will the "lucky" auction winner get -- the book that Kate didn't write or the picture book that says nothing (i.e. Multiple Blessings or Eight Little Faces)?

kinman said...

So I guess if we look at Twitter, we will be hearing about the 2-hour 12-mile run for awhile now, huh? She surely does like to brag about herself doesn't she? That' s great that she has that much free time ( much more time than can spend on running, but I have a job,kids,other stuff, and get to squeeze in a half-hour if I'm lucky!) I get it that she is insecure and the running thing is what she has now that is "hers". So did she go back to the famous Ted Gibson salon this weekend or was she just tweeting him (and his crew) that she decided to stay blonde? Just wondering if she was still going there or not after all of this. His salon is pretty expensive I would think for just an average gal. I am not an official Twitter follower but I do read them sometimes, as I find it interesting that she would want all of her activities to be so public. But I guess any photo op is better than nothing!

Elvira said...

This is a quote about Lindsay Lohan, but will it also be true of the Gosselin kids? Will the show ending before the teen years make a positive difference?

“She has been exploited for most of her life,” the pal says, “so it’s unsurprising she doesn’t have much grip on reality.”

Shoka's Understudy said...

I can't believe that kate has offered herself up for a lunch date with 9 people and only offering a book that can be bought here for a dollar!

How embarrassing!

Will each person at the lunch get one?

It would be better for all of the books, bundled together tied with a ribbon, signed and given to each person.

Brummygirl posted the estimated cost of her highness and her purseholder going and she is going to insist going first class and first class accomodations. Also, I saw they raised 100K last year.

Is this after they take out all the expenses of the auction?

If the people at Steve Irwin Day don't be careful, kate and steve will take 25% of their fundraising for first class tickets and first class accommodations, all for a book that can be bought here for a measly dollar!

Shoka's Understudy said...

The kids have to use one towel a week to dry off with when they take a shower, and now their play clothes can be played in until they are visibly dirty.

barnaby said...

Regarding the Lohan quote -

The huge difference between the Gosselins and Lohan is the Gosselins attend school. And will continue to do so because their mother really doesn't want to be around them and those children lack any marketable talent apart from being part of a flock of kids. The Gosselins have always had that very important structure in their lives. And structure is what is so obviously lacking on Lohan's life.

Even Paris Hilton "graduated," sort of, with a high school education I greatly doubt if any of the Lohan children can say as much.

hannah said...

Gross. A towel a week. The twins will soon start having periods, still one towel a week then? Really. Its just stupid and the twins can do the wash and the tups can help. However, she prob didn`t teach them how too. She doesn`t have to put quarters in the slots or travel to wash them. Grr.

Proud Grandma said...

OK so maybe this is a bit extreme, but I have just completed a course called Bugs in the Home. One of the things they talk about and advocate is personal towels, wash daily if possible, but certainly change daily. We did some experiments, albeit very simple, which scared the heck out of us. One is the amount of bacteria (not the good stuff. E coli and so on, that can be spread by communal towel using. Have a shower, dry your body, including your rear. hang the towel up. Next time, have a pee, wash your hands, dry your hands on same towel, put hands in mouth, eweee.
One other thing, and this really did it for me. Flush the toilet with lid up, NO. Another thing we did was to have a toilet with dye in it then flushed it. That dye was everywhere, on toothbrushes on sink next to toilet, on floor, on handtowels hanging nearby. Not good. Flush with lid closed, please. So maybe I sound like a germaphobe (which I am not) but that course could soon turn me into one. So Kate, have designated hand towel area, away from toilet, and a towel each (maybe colour coordinated as I know you are such an ezpert organizer) and bath towels changed at least ever two days. But don't let anyone use them for their hands and face.

That she has made millions and spends and spent thousands on her hair.

Drives a Audi TT sports car, cries poor, she has bills in her purse she cannot pay on the Today show and right after taping the show goes to NOBU and spends a whopping $174.00 for lunch!

And you send her cereal!

What about giving the cereal to the local food bank, they would be grateful.

Grateful to kate gives her the strength to ask for more free stuff.

She is shameless.

Cascadian Farm contact is Small Planet Foods. On the Cascadian Farm website at the very bottom is "contact us".

She lives in a mansion with a pool, goes on first class vacations and has her kids in private school.I beg you to rethink this and give your free cereal to a local food bank , meals on wheels or the free breakfast programs for truly needy kids. Do the right thing and give to the people that would really be thankful for your donation."

Where did the info come from that they actually went there and spent that much for lunch...or did someone pull up a menu and saw that a typical lunch cost that much?

If Steve had to tell her not to go to NOBU right after the interview, then that is very telling.

INF Daily caught up with Kate Gosselin as she ran her morning errands today in Reading, PA. Gotta admire that outfit! Say what you like about Ms. Gosselin (like we could stop you), she sure is fit.

Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s move on to the shoes, shall we? Hooker heels just seem so uncomfortable for running errands. Kate doesn’t seem to be struggling with any of her tasks though.

Yesterday Kate directed a jab on her Twitter towards longtime child actor advocate Paul Petersen, after being informed Peterson had been interviewed on a radio show. “lol. He just needs a platform to hear himself talk…” A few sites are up in arms about it - what do you think, was Gosselin out of line?

Around 9 am this morning on my way to the Wells Fargo bank in Robesonia Pa, I happened to see Ms Kate jogging on the Bernville-Robesonia road...

Man, without makeup, she is not attractive....

..and did she have any security?

Ya gotta love 'accurate' reporting. The pic of her shoes in the latest errand running episode are described as 'strappy sandals', while in actuality, they look like 'hooker style granny heely type bootish thingies'.

I thought there was a big deal about Kate doing a stint as guest co-host of The Talk. Is this off the table? It seems this was the only job offer that received publicity. What's up with it?

I came across an article about Howard Stern ripping kate pretty bad. I can't stand Howard, he is beyond gross, but I laughed so hard about him talking about kate's DWTS elimination cry/sniff/I need a minute goodbye.

Howard calls her selfish, damaged and a psycho! Now, why didn't kate twitter about Howard having to have a platform to hear himself talk, instead of Paul Peterson?

Howard Stern's fans would of hit the roof!

Also, in the National Enquirer, kate is ripped here about taking the kids to Hollywood and put them in show business, talking about her managing them, getting acting classes, dance classes.

She is also trying to convince Jon
to let them get into show business.

Stay strong on your no tv stance, Jon!

She tweeted that there was zero truth to that article.

She's a guest on the View on Monday. Guest co-hosting The Talk was just that - TALK.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! Looks like Hailey Glassman has parlayed her five minutes of fame into a reality gig - she's going to be one of the "city girls" on Sweet Home Alabama - another stupid TV dating contest. In the ad I saw, she "confesses" Jon Gosselin is her ex-boyfriend. The best part is, the guy is just looking at her like he has no idea whom she's talking about...

Wonder if Kate is already calling the producers to line up her spot? Well, not if she watched the whole commercial - they have the city girls mucking out a horse stall...

K's scheduled to appear on the view monday, but I am unclear as to if she is co-hosting or appearing.
If BW is the interviewer she thinks she is, she better ask KI about the pedophile that had access to ALL the film of her children.The charges also say this guy sold pics,...if I was KI, I would be flipping out, thinking this guy *used* my kid's pics for pleasure, then sold them to others...so sad for those kids. KI is SO STUPID, doesn't she realize guys like this, *enjoyed* themselves while watching the realist of all reality shows?
....there is no way she didn't know this guy, nope, not believing her denial.

From what I can tell, Julie Chen is the one who decides who will be on The Talk. It's her show because her husband runs the network. And if Holly Peete Robinson and Leah Remini were not good enough for Julie Chen, then I can see no way that Kate Gosselin would stand a chance of even being invited to audition as a co-host.

Chen is looking for co-hosts who will boost The Talk's sad ratings. Kate Gosselin is not that draw. Further, it seems like Chen would like to have Sharon Osbourne return as co-host when she is ready. Osbourne despises Kate Gosselin. So there's strike #2.

Finally, Kate is a has been who never really was. She's not personable, witty, well read, or entertaining. She has a teeny tiny following consisting of mainly some teenage girls and a few lousy moms. So there's strike #3.

Frankly, I'm very surprised she even got a guest shot on The View. Has that been confirmed? If so, wouldn't it be funny if Kate got 3 minutes, right at the end of the show (like she did the single time Ellen had her on)? And if she is on - who wants to place bets that she can't resist bringing up Jon in a bad light yet again?

Although I could totally see that happening at some point, the National Enquirer isn't exactly the place to go to for accurate information. It makes me sad though just thinking about it.

I remember being in dance, and gymnastics and all kinds of other sports and activities when I was young and I loved them.

My parents weren't stage parents though. I just see Kate putting her kids into those activities and making it all about her. I'm actually surprised we haven't seen them on Dance Moms or Toddlers and Tiaras.

Nope. Sorry. I didn't say that. My response was to that comment, and I said that Kate tweeted there was no truth to the NE story.
