Kate Refuses Show? Was she asked? Is she lying?

Kate allegedly has refused to appear on CW show.

Even though Kate Gosselin issued a challenge asking her haters to get to know her before judging her, the mom of eight has turned down the opportunity to win over such a person on Mario Lopez's new hit show, "H8R."

So... She'll work her fingers to the bone in order to support HER kids all by herself? So pathetic. Can't stand up to her critics...why? When is she gonna do something about this mess? When they're totally broke?

logical said...

so typical Kate, she can talk the talk but cannot back it up. I would haved LOVED to see her on this show and ask some questions.....


what would be the biggest question everyone would ask?

Question for Kate: grandma, why are your teeth so everloving big?

Katy Kat said...

Oh, I bet she did. There are so many different angles from which to question her from. Child abuse angle--verbal, emotional, physical.All on film. Not good for someone who claims to be Mom of the Year.
Grifter angle--"Why were you in my church begging for Love Offerings from people on a fixed income and then we see you moving into a mansion two weeks later?"
Where is the money angle.
Spousal abuse angle.
Affair angle.
Liar angle--Boob job for starters.

She knows there is no way to defend herself. She's too easy of a mark.

KatyKat said...

AND I bet she begged to be able to go on this show because a narcissist can justify anything, but her publicist said, "Oh, hell no!"

Bev said...

I'm think the reason she won't do it is because doing the one show is not going to bring her much money so why be humiliated for a small sum of money that is not going to solve her problems. I am sure that is how she looks at it. Now if they offered her a very large sum of money I think she might suck it up and do it but that's not going to happen!

ncgirl said...

Kate just twittered she was not even asked to do this show.

Brummygirl said...

Of course she will not put herself in the hot seat! She would crumble if at last she was questioned on a number of revealing things and not given a pass by a soft interviewer.
They would probably pierce that bubble she lives in.

cwgirlup75 said...

I'm sure that her "top advisor" gave her a big HELL NO to this idea - but I bet that attention whore still had a hard time turning it down.

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

I have absolutely NO idea if she was asked or not.

But now that she has twittered that she was not even asked to do this show, whether she was or not, her fans will say:

"Well, she says she wasn't even asked to do the show, so that settles it. She wasn't asked."

Just because she says she wasn't asked certainly does NOT mean she wasn't asked.

We just don't know. Her twitter settles nothing.

Jenny O said...

I believe that at least some tentative feelers went out to Kate to see if she'd consider doing the show. But there is no way Kate would ever do face-to-face with people who find fault with her! Of course she said "no!"

Although it would have been classic to see Kate grinding her teeth and getting extremely irritated at the nerve of some people daring to ask about her parenting, I'm more glad that she refused the offer. The less she is seen on tv in any capacity, the less relevance she'll have. Her "stock" will go down even further the longer she's been out of the public eye; and even offers like this one will stop coming in.

Aunt Chris said...

I'm betting they wouldn't let her have the earpiece with the "advisor" telling her what to say.

cwgirlup75 said...

I can't shake the feeling that this bitch has one last ace up her sleeve. Some big splash to get her name back in the tabs before she fades into oblivion. I hope I'm wrong, but she has risen from the ashes so many times before.

Soon to be Cancelled said...

Of course, she was asked!!! When I saw that show advertised, the first person I thought of was Kate Gosselin. The producers would absolutely want her on the show.

As narcissistic as she is, there's really no "up side" to doing this show. It would only be for one episode, she can't handle not being in control, she certainly wouldn't be able to answer real tough questions about her grifting and parenting, and she wouldn't be paid that much.

Ask her again in a few months when she sees no other tv opportunities, and I bet she would do it for the money. That's unlikely to happen since the show is going to be cancelled. I haven't watched it, but I saw another article today about new shows that are likely to get the axe, and this was one of them. It has really pathetic ratings.

Barbara M. said...

The only way Kate will ever answer questions is on a show where the interviewer has been ordered to only ask questions which have been approved ahead of time, so that she can prepare her answers in advance. There is no way she will ever risk having to face questions which are probing or challenge her standard, poor-little-me answers.

Kate Gosselin Says She Won’t Pay To Get Her Hair Done!




Ever since the mom-of-eight was given the boot by TLC she’s been penny pinching, but should she abuse her old star privileges just because she can’t afford her lifestyle?
Kate Gosselin isn’t on TV anymore but she still expects the star treatment. The former Kate Plus 8 star took to her Twitter to answer a fan who inquired how much her haircuts and color cost her on average and she had a shocking answer!

“Never. Always comped. Wouldn’t dream of spending that kind of $ on hair!!??!

Wow! We knew that Kate occasionally hit up the glamorous Ted Gibson salon, but we hope she’s not completely relying on her old reality stardom to get her by. We know times are tough for Kate but doesn’t she sound so spoiled by saying this?

If Kate is worried about spending money

Dan C said...

I think the witch answers questions on her website with blatent lies. This woman is sick an takes us for idiots. Who is gonna comp an unemployed over the hill former reality star with expensive haircuts or anything else.Her teen followers might send there allowances but other than that.....WHAT A SHAMEFUL GRIFTER

O-Hi-O said...

We should 'get to know her'?

Since we had no less than 8 seasons of 'the realest reality show on tv', how is it possible that we DON'T know her?

Uncle Sam said...

Karma is a bitch and so is the IRS! If Kate is being comped for evreything (because as we know she'd NEVER spend that kind of money on herself) all it will take is for one person to turn her in for an audit. The IRS takes things like this seriously and she doesn't know when to shut her mouth on twitter.

finalthoughts said...

Compared to the teacher in "Dance Moms," Kate would appear rather mellow.

Elvira said...

One HUGE difference, Abby isn't anyone's mother. The kids there can escape Abby.

Jenny O said...

I'm guessing Kate's answer about her "celeb" hairstyling was more prevarication. Sure, before her contract was not renewed by TLC, she got her hair cuts comped (either because Kate was having her hair done for a photo shoot or red carpet function), or basically covered by TLC, because it was to promote one of their fading stars.

However, if she tried NOW to get her hair styling comped, the stylist would be a fool to agree. I am pretty sure she's going to have to get her hair done locally and pay just like the "mediocre" people do.

RONLEE said...

I have a daughter in law who is auditor for the IRS.....think I should report her?

Shoka's Understudy said...

kate has a picture of one of the kids lunchboxes on her website.

It is Collin's and here is what is in there:

Guacamole and chips, celery stick, a plum, raisins, yogurt, and a Juicy Juice.

How about a turkey wrap to go along with the finger foods?

Also, there is no way in chicken soup she wrote the article about their morning routine. She did not write it.

Hyperbole is the word I am looking for!

No wonder those kids are so little and skinny.

Shoka's Understudy said...

Ronlee, yes, tell your DIL!

Comped hair do's.

Love offerings for thousands and thousands of dollars.

The appearance fees for 25K and there were many of them.

The vehicles.

The pink moped.

The tummy tuck, even though it was free, it still has value.

The limo rides to NYC, comped by TLC, still has value.

All the gift cards, cash, the community makeover.

Even the gift cards the fans on twitter are supposedly sending her.

Hopefully, the IRS will take this case seriously and go back at least 7 years.

I would love to start a Facebook campaign to get the IRS to audit her.

She deserves it.

Can'tKeepHerStoriesStraight said...

“Never. Always comped. Wouldn’t dream of spending that kind of $ on hair!!??!
--------------
Didn't she recently say on Twitter that she did NOT say she pays nothing for her hair services, but rather pays next to nothing.

This woman can not keep her lies straight. She would be better off not commenting at all on these issues,as she constatnly puts out contradictory comments. All to paint herself in the best light. At least in her own mind.

And what is with Kate making all of the derogatory comments about how often Jon has the kids, and her brother buying a house and taking a vacation on her back.

She really needs to shut up- Grifters have no room to complain about others allegedly grifting and using the kids. She is the queen of that. She needs to shut up, stop twittering and blogging, as she CONSTANTLY contradicts herself and exposes herself for the liar that she is. Gets old, and most of us, except "the fans" get this.

Grace said...

I bet the only reason she didn't accept the offer was because TLC still owns her. The show may be cancelled, but they still probably have a talent development deal with her for a while still.

GrifterKate said...

The free clothes, food products, vacations, love offerings, $20 cash to sign a book (who does that?), free tummy tuck, free teeth bleaching, crooked houses for the kids, toys, free trips,I Pads, etc... far to many products she took on the premise that she could not afford them, while she clearly was making millions of dollars a year.

Elvira said...

Wasn't she trying to peddle a new reality show just a few weeks ago in LA? She couldn't do that if she had a talent holding agreement with TLC.

SmileyGrl752 said...

I personally believe the reason Kate didn't want to be on that show (if she was indeed asked)was so she didn't have to be in the hot seat and be accountable for actions. I think she knew people were going to hammer her with hard questions and she'd have no way out, even with the "I'm so stressed out" excuses.

I would have shown the clip where she says, "Everything I do is for my kids", and also where she says, "We get what we get and we don't get upset" and then shown the Sarah Palin episode, and asked her why did she threaten to disown the kids if everything she does is for them? Why did she get upset and break her own rule?

O-Hi-O said...

The only show involving Kate Gosselin that I'd tune in for is "Wipe Out".

It could be fun watching those veneered teeth, those store-bought tatas, the overdone hair and, most especially, that overt-the-top narcissism face their rightful justice.

Other than that, there is simply nothing about Kate Gosselin that warrants my interest or my time.

ncgirl said...

Kate said on twitter she wasn't on contract with TLC until February 2012.

The Haters show has been cancelled. Funny the producer said they got more people wanting to confront her than any other celebrity. That show was made for her, but she wouldn't have the guts to do it.

Jenny O said...

I did once remark that after TLC finally dropped Kate, the only shows that would be offered to her would be those seeking D-listers who were willing to be embarrassed/humiliated just to be on tv. The H8R show is a perfect example.

If Kate really wants to be on tv, she's going to have to face the fact that these will be her only avenues, and few and far between at that.

She's in her later 30's, is universally disliked, has no talents or skills -- why does she think she can get a tv job at all?

"And what is with Kate making all of the derogatory comments about how often Jon has the kids, and her brother buying a house and taking a vacation on her back."

This made me curious, so I found her tweet about Kevin. It's typical of a narcissist to think that everyone's actions are somehow because of her. If I recall correctly, Kevin and Jodi had a very nice house before, and they seemed to be doing well. Now, all of a sudden, anything they have is because they sold Kate out. She is really sick. The nerve of them, going on a vacation! Wow. As if they couldn't have done that without getting a ton of money for selling Kate out.

And why are we to believe that Kate has done a billion interviews, written books, and gone on speaking tours and has made NO MONEY. Yet, Jodi and Kevin have done two or three interviews and have made enough off these to chance their whole lifestyle. She's insane. Here's the tweet:

"oh yeah! And sold and bought a big house and went on vacation too... Blood money... Sick."

Annie2 said...

"oh yeah! And sold and bought a big house and went on vacation too... Blood money... Sick."

Its my understanding, according to the blog post put out by Aunt Jodi's sister, that, Jodi and Kevin were not paid for their time on the show. I don't even think they were paid for watching the kids. How can she accuse them of making money off her kids when they were not paid for the work that they did do?

@@@@@@

If I recall correctly, wasn't there somethining in a gossip rag about her not tipping? I always thought if you're comp'ed you increase the size of the tip...she doesn't tip at all.

Although it would have been very entertaining, I'm glad she didn't do the show. That would have been a real embarassment for the kids and the twins are getting to an age where their classmates could really hassle them on something like that. You can only protect the kids for so long.

This woman never ceases to shock me. She is acusing Jodi and Kevin of blood money???? Look in the mirror woman!!

Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow said...

Didn't she recently say on Twitter that she did NOT say she pays nothing for her hair services, but rather pays next to nothing.

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

She said that they are comped...that she would never pay that much money for hair services. Comped=free.

"In January of 2010, stylist Ted Gibson told RadarOnline.com that Kate Gosselin's hairstyle, which he did, would normally cost close to $7000: “My haircuts are $950. The color would have been about $500, and the extensions, which were great length extensions, would probably cost about $5000.”

Apparently fans are wondering how or if Kate actually pays for her pricey haircuts. In an exchange on Twitter with a fan, Kate said she got her haircuts for free.

The fan, using the Twitter handle KS239, asked:"@Kateplusmy8 you once spent more than $7,000 on a haircut?"

Kate responded by tweeting back:" @KS239 never. Always comped. Wouldn't dream of spending that kind of $ on hair!!??!"

Shoka's Understudy said...

Isn't anything comped, TAXABLE to the IRS?

If it is not, it should be!

How can kate take a trip with the girls and Steve to Denver on their birthday, and on the side of her mouth crying poor?

Why couldn't Jon have the girls for their birthday?

I wonder who they went to go see? Taylor Swift? Justin Beiber?

Chelle (Tori & Lucas at Home) said...

As far as I can recall from the early episodes, Kevin and Jodi had a nicer house than Jon & Kate from the start. It always appeared that they were quite well off, anyway. And since they were already that way when the tups were born, how on earth does Kate think SHE is responsible for their good fortune? Seems to me like they were just plain hard working people!

And they went on vacation and that makes her mad? ONE VACATION?

Look in the mirror, nitwit, you sold your children's CHILDHOODS for a whole bunch of stupid vacations. And you are mad that your brother could afford to go on ONE vacation? Really, Kate? Are you that jealous of people who are happy and well-adjusted? No one in the world but you deserves to go on vacation? God, you make me sick.

I feel it deep in my core that Donald Trump will have her on for the next season of The Apprentice. She is still a huge draw "hater-wise" and he needs to get people watching again. The only person who loves the limelight more than Kate is Donald. If he and NBC offers her a boatload of cash just to appear on it, she'll do it.

I think that is a great idea. I approve of anything that 1) does not involve the kids and 2) gets Kate out of town so the kids don't have to deal with her and hopefully spend more time with Jon, not a sitter.

Jenny O said...

I wouldn't mind if Donald Trump put Kate on his next Celeb Apprentice. But here's the thing: Most of the competitions involve raising money, and the celebs are supposed to tap into their contacts to show up wherever they are and write a big check. The team who raises the most money wins that challenge.

Kate has no one to call. In all seriousness, who would she call to be a big cash donor? Steve? Her PR people? Trump always has d-listers on his show, but even they have some wealthy contacts they can tap into.

However, if he had her as a contestant, I wouldn't care except for the snark value. Seeing Kate have to mingle with her teammates, take orders, then flake out and refuse to do a task, then act totally puzzled at why anyone would dare call her lazy -- comedy gold. Then when Trump says "you're fired!" and she has to do the walk of shame! Oh now, I'm hoping he does select her as a contestant.
