Kate's Future

How long do you think it will take Kate to realize that there is no future for her in TV?  How long before she lets the PR team go?  What do you think she will actually end up doing as a job when she takes one?

I fully anticipate a "breach of contract" lawsuit against TLC and whoever else a lawyer will try to sue way before she ever actually tries to find a job. She will stop at nothing to try to make money without actually working. I would love to see the actual contract she had and how much money she truly made from selling her children and her soul for hair, nails, a bogus tan and that house. In the end, while she may have no case, corporations often settle for small sums to keep these cases from dragging on and costing legal fees and bad publicity.

Also, she probably will try to get whatever money John may have before she looks for a real job.

If you look at some of the other Grade Z reality people, there are still a few rather pitiful outlets for stardom, like hosting infomercials, celebrity poker outings, hosting events at casinos, local talent shows, etc. It may be a long time before she truly hits bottom and has to join the real world. And she will be a 40 year old, haggard, mother of 8 at that time.

I don't think she will ever come to that realisation. The fact of her hanging on for validation from tweeters, smacks of desperation to me.
She has dropped hints to her *tweeties* wink wink, that there is something in the works. Is it a job..is it delusion? Who knows?
Whenever I think about Kate in the future, I think of Carol Burnett's portrayal of Norma Desmond the famous but eventually forgotten silent screen movie actress who went a little..shall we say insane?
*All right, Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my close-up* (One of the Gwop'ers name!!)

DebbieH said...

I don't think Kate will ever come to the realization that her 15 minutes are so gone...I think she will first notice the change in her freebies...people will no longer be letting her go to the "front of the line" anymore...she will actually have to start paying her own way for TRIPS(God forbid)...people usually give celebrities free stuff (or comps) so they get the free advertising...like who does Kate's hair???She won't get that anymore since she no longer has a show...that's why she is lying when she says she's still getting her hair done free of charge...What possible benefit does Mr. Hair Man get doing her hair free now??NONE...She just doesn't want to tell anyone she's paying because then she can't pretend to be broke and keep begging...

tate said...

Well, she is still getting some freebies. Cascadian Farms just tweeted her that they wanted to send her some free cereal. She tweeted right back with her favorite kinds. Nice that they are giving to a millionaire mom and not families truly in need. I wrote a letter of complaint to them on their website.

Katie Kreider has always thought she was a celebrity. She will never change.

"Katie Kreider has always thought she was a celebrity. She will never change."

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

Agreed. Her 15 minutes of fame seemed to completely delude her, as evidenced by her repeated statement that the 'couldn't go back' (so they might as well continue filming and raking in the coin of the realm). MUCH more talented, MUCH more likable people have completely fallen off the public radar, yet Gosselin seemed to really believe she was going to be 'famous' forever.

She has ridden that 'special attention for Katie' pony since getting preggers with the six. That's a LONG time to nurse the delusion that you deserve attention, fame, fortune.

K8G will not go quietly into that good night. She will be scratching and clawing the whole way back to where she has always belonged: oblivion.

I wonder who this *family shoot* is aimed at. Has Steve in his new capacity as general factotum set this up with ROL?
She will never give up including the children in this desperate reach for fame as they are her only ticket.

Grammaof9 said...

Checked out the "photo shoot" and from what I could see, it was basically a "shoot" of Khate running things. The twins are visible but basically the tups (in their matchy-matchy outfits) have their backs to the camera. Glad to see, tho, that the twins do not have matching outfits on.

Could be that the end product is a group shoot but for what? Another People cover????? Sincerely hope not.

================================
Wow. Just wow. A cloying attempt at ingratiating herself in the eyes of the public again. The hair is magnificent, her nails exquisite, her eyes (if she hasn't had work done recently then the make up was professionally done) she has a gentle smile, making sure she's the center of each shot, looking at the camera several times, pointing - look at what a "good" mother she is, teaching her children - "Look children - Look! A tree! Oh, a fawn! Oh, what a wonderful time we are having! Wait! The first point wasn't graceful enough - take another shot!"

These pictures feel fabricated and pretentious. Recent pap photos have been of her yelling at the kids and miserable. This is an attempt to clear that up.

Still can't hide those frownie lines though.

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

Gotta laugh at the puny effort of the "Halloween" picture shoot.
What is halloweeny about it? One little pumpkin just doesn't cut it. Maybe K8 is "wearing the face that she keeps by the door" and it's the mask that she wears in public. So sad for the 3 boys, all looking downward in a dejected fashion. What in the world did they do now? Even when she is pointing upward to something that seems to be of interest to her, the little ones are still looking at the ground. Whoever is responsible for these photos should be ashamed to have not proofed them before publishing. These photos only show how happy they are...NOT!

She's come undone said...

Do any of you remember when Jon once said that he was too "famous" to get a real job. Well, he very quickly fell off that high horse and as far as I know he continues to work a regular job to this day just like the rest of us. But I agree with all of you that Kate may not come to this realization. .

Picture Time! said...

Radar states that it is difficult to get a photo op with 8 kids.
When my son was in pre-K the teacher could get a dozen 4 year olds lined up for a photo in less than ten seconds! She just told them "icture places" and they knew what to do.
I would think that 8 kids who have been raised with endless photo ops would know what to do by age 7 and 11.

Kate Gosselin Unattended Van Kids

KATE GOSSELIN put her 8 youngsters in potential danger when she left them unattend ed in a parked vehicle while buying some Chinese takeout.

Photos obtained by The ENQUIRER show Kate’s gaggle of Gosselins alone in her van in front of the Q Q Asia restaurant in Sinking Spring, Pa., at 4 p.m. on Oct. 14.

The “Kate Plus 8” mom and her daughter Alexis, 11, went inside and were in the store for at least 15 minutes before they spotted local resident Pam Van Winkle photographing her left-alone brood.

“I was totally shocked,” Van Winkle told The ENQUIRER.

“What kind of mom would leave her kids alone in a van in a shopping mall?

“Kate is in the public eye and that puts her kids at risk of be ing kidnapped – she was en dangering these kids. It’s outra geous!”

http://www.nationalenquirer.com/celebrity/kate-gosselin-unattended-van-kids

Brummygirl said...

The Enquirer should either state the name of the child correctly or the age. They quote Alexis as 11, it was probably one of the twins.
Whichever, the woman who took the photo was probably not that shocked if she turned it over to The Enquirer for money!!

Sharla said...

To the unable to read commenter (not published) who wanted to rant about my paying for the pictures, please learn to read and comprehend. The National Enquirer is the one to whom you should address your complaints. I neither paid for nor posted any pictures. A commenter here merely provided the information that NE had a story.

Jenny O said...

“What kind of mom would leave her kids alone in a van in a shopping mall?
--------------------------

I think we could all sing the answer in unison: "Kate Gosselin, that's who!"

But, but, but .... where is super security dude Steve Nield? Maybe his delicate tastebuds don't like Chinese food either. Still, he couldn't be on duty at the van? Perhaps he was on a rare visit home at the time, to drop of dirty laundry and pick up clean clothes.

Maybe Kate had to reduce the hours the nanny/babysitter worked because her income has dropped. Why not leave the older girl in the van with 2 or 3 of the younger ones, and take the other younger children into the Chinese joint with her?

Gr8 W/O Kate said...

Well, well, well....guess Kate truly displays another lie: that the family NEEDS a security man! LOL! Leaving helpless kids alone in a van.

Gee, what was that guy? Perhaps a paid ESCORT?! YES!

Gr8 W/O Kate said...

Ah...and the "Wonderful mother" who leaves kids in vans alone and ALWAYS puts the kids first...has both twins sit in one seat and share a seatbelt!

I wonder if she posted that on her blog as a 'time saving tip'? Bwahahaahahahaha!!!

STLmommy said...

why wouldn't she have it delivered? She wants people to see poor her carting around all those kids.

Proud Grandma said...

Re the NI article, were there actually any photos posted in the paper? Could you see the twins in one seat with same belt?

bbeau said...

Well, she is still getting some freebies. Cascadian Farms just tweeted her that they wanted to send her some free cereal.

I just sent them this email:

I just read that Cascadian Farms is sending Kate Gosselin free cereal. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? After just hearing a news report about the many children that go hungry in the United States I am appalled that you would send food to a woman who made millions on her reality TV show, books and appearances. Who next, the Kardashians?

Sleepless In Seattle said...

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

Kate has the hard-top Audi sports. There is a backseat in there for a kid, no adults, just a child. I seriously doubt that both girls were in the front seat.

Jane said...

Saw this Kate related tweet today. Waiting for the 8 to start their revolution! :-)

hannah said...

Sharing a seat belt, leaving them alone. I hope if its true some legal action is taken for the kids safety.

She will never get over it she prob thought she get free stuff at old navy.

Liz said...

I live right near by Cascadian Farms. I sent them an email asking why they'd send a wealthy person free cereal and urged them to help our local food bank, who is currently doing a food drive.

Jenny O said...

I e-mailed Cascadian Farms to express my disgust with their offer of free cereal to Kate, pointing out that there are much more needy families who could use the help. All I've received so far is their canned e-mail "thanks for your input" response. Hopefully, they are getting a lot of negative comments and might rethink their decision.

Nancy said...

Too bad the person who took the pic of the kids alone in the van didn't call 911 and report it. Nothing wrong with selling the pics, but geeze, it only takes a minit to call the cops.

_______________

Why should they call law enforcement? PA does have a law regarding children left alone in cars, BUT here it is not illegal to leave children over six years old alone in a car. Would I do it? Heck, not, but if PA Code says it's not illegal, then there's no reason to call 911.

Berks Has Shoes! said...

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

They did not share a seat belt! Her sports car has a seats between the passenger front row and the trunk. It's a tiny seat, but two kids the size of the twins are able to sit there and be buckled in.

There is nothing illegal about what she did, neither in having the twins sit in the second row seats, however small, or leaving the kids in the car, which is not a violation of PA code.

A wise decision to let the kids alone in the car? No, but nothing that for which she could be cited. Good idea to have the kids sit in the back of her sports car? It would be uncomfortable, but as long as they were buckled up, she's in compliance with PA child safety laws.

Liz said...

So Kate needs a bodyguard to carry her purse when no one is around but it's safe to leave her young kids unattended in a car in public for an extended period of time?

irish wonder said...

Maybe Stevie is out of the picture now? There is now way with the drop in income that she can continue with a staff of security, PR, nannies, etc.

I'm guessing foreclosure is in her future. Her mortgage alone is 9K a month.

Maybe the fact that she had all the kids with her shows that there has been a reduction in staff????

Annie2 said...

Kate will not be on the Talk.
http://www.examiner.com/tv-in-national/the-talk-cbs-finds-final-panelist-aisha-tyler

I wonder how much longer her fans are going to hold out.

jojow said...

The only issue I see with her leaving the children in the car is that they are high profile. There could be a risk of someone harassing them, trying to talk to them, or trying to open the doors to see the kids. I suppose if there were just the right crazy person there, kidnapping would be a concern, but really, it's a little hard to kidnap 6 or 7 kids on broad daylight. And even if someone tried to grab just one, there are a bunch of other kids certainly screaming and crying to draw attention.

The kids are more than old enough to be left in the car for a short time. It was only 15 minutes. As long as it wasn't too hot or too cold and the door were locked, I don't see the problem.

I can't stand Kate, but this is one thing I can't hold against her.

Think: What If? said...

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

No child should be left alone in a car for two minutes, let alone 15 when the parent can't see them at all times. There's more to it than abduction. What if there was a mechanical problem with the car, such as a fire. Would the kids know what to do? Could they get out? What if the child was eating and food got lodged in their throat? What if the kids got into a nasty argument, climbed into the front seat and accidentally put the car in neutral? What if someone saw it as an opportunity to steal a car, and they took off with a child in it? There have been numerous reports of this happening. What if a "fan" recognized the car, wrapped on the window, and the kids put down the window just to "talk?" She was parked far away from the restaurant, not close by...otherwise she wouldn't have gotten into the car and moved it closer.

Things can happen in a blink of an eye, and they do happen. No child should be left alone in a car. I don't care if it's for one minute or for one hour.

hannah said...

Kids shouldn`t be in the car. I thought you had to be at lest 12 or 13(teenager) to be alone. I don`t get why she didn't have the food picked up before she got the kids. Good Luck, Kids.

Annie2 said...

Was it illegal for Kate to leave the kids in the car? No, PA law says that its legal to leave kids over the age of 6 alone in the car.

Was it wise for her to leave her kids in the car? No, the kids are widely known. They need to be protected from over zealous fans and from people that want to hurt them or make money off of them. This may be an issue that needs to be discussed in court.

Jenny O said...

I agree that Kate didn't break any laws by leaving several of the children alone in the van - presumably with one of the twins to keep an eye on them. However, it was unwise in that they are widely known because of being on TLC, and it's also quite possible that there are some fans who would cross the line and worse if given the chance.

It's simply a sad truth that there are mentally ill people out there who latch onto public figures and believe they know them. For all her crying about needing security, Kate appears not to believe her own children need it.

I am guessing that Kate is doing some cost-cutting measures, or else she would have left the kids at home with a nanny while she went out for take-out; or sent a "helper" to pick up the take out for them. The fact that she had all the kids could mean she had to finally cut back on the paid nannies.

gr8 wo kate said...

LOL! I guess Ms. Krieder forgets that she doesn't have a platform to hear herself talk, squawk, and scream--her show was cancelled and she was turned down for "the talk". She isn't getting any good job offers in the entertainment business. So, she insults a man who had much success in his own right; he has actual talent, not just a person making money off his children.

Paul Peterson is a hero. He is intelligent and has things to say that people actually want to hear. He is a selfless advocate for those who are too small and weak to speak for themselves. Of course Katie can not understand that. She has always been selfish and greedy. She would never help others.

She'll never Learn said...

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

Kate needs to be more diplomatic in her tweets. You never know who is watching. I'm sure she felt personally attacked at the PA hearings, but she needs to know (or should I say care) that these statements are being repeated. It's bad enough that Kate and her fans continue to attack Jon, the father of her childern, even though he has turned himself around. But to attack a well respected Child Advocate?? Not smart Kate.

Debbie H said...

I just posted a comment on the FB page of Cascadian Farms...Maybe if we all start posting and threating to stop using their products, we can get them to stop people from giving her anything free...Makes me sick that people would give her anything when she got rich off the backs of her kids childhoods...

Brummygirl said...

Of course Kate is nasty about Paul Peterson, he has got in her way of exploiting the children in future endeavours.
Her constant tweet to her tweetie-pies, is that she is always positive. Yes, positively nasty!!

Worst Stage Mom Ever? Kate Gosselin Secret Hollywood Agenda!

The Gosselin clan is Hollywood bound! Money-hungry mom KATE GOSSELIN plans to enroll her eight kids in singing and acting class es, and then, after they sharpen their talents, move to Los Ange les, The ENQUIRER has learned.

“Kate’s ultimate goal is to get her kids into the entertain ment business and manage their careers,” an insider told The ENQUIRER.

“She’s looking into acting, singing and dancing classes near the family’s home in Pennsylvania. She wants to get the kids started in commercials by next year.”

(snip)

…Kate believes that she can be the mother of all stage moms, making big bucks by managing the kids’ careers, although she has yet to convince her ex-hubby, said the source.

“Jon’s been very outspoken about wanting to keep the chil dren off TV,” the insider said.

“But Kate has slowly been talking him into it by promising to keep the spotlight off the kids’ personal lives.

"If she gets her way, the whole family will be Hollywood bound by next year!”

Elvira said...

One of her worst ideas. Most of the kids don't have any more talent than their mother. Plus she will keep the kids from getting auditions simply by her personality as a wretched stage mom.

PA mom said...

Does she want to be the next Chris Jenner?

Even Chris let the Kardashian / Jenner kids have a relatively normal life until they decided to pursue modeling.

***********************************
O.M.G. the worst scenario yet!!! Where has the information come from? I said a very long time ago that the witch had her eyes set on Hollywood.
She knows she cannot make it herself, so once again, she wants to make money off her kids' backs.
I really hope this is only a rumour and that Jon has NOT been coerced into this. He now has the position to stop this tom foolery. How on earth can she promise not to give out personal data on the kids' lives, if once again they are in the public eye, the media will do that. I am sorry, but I find it really hard to believe that Jon would go along with this. If he did, he would lose any respect I have for him.
The bottom line of this is, do the kids have talent? Not every one will. You can take your kids to classes, but you cannot guarantee they will be any good. Are they going to be another Brady Bunch?
Oh I am so disturbed by this because I thought at last Kate was just pursuing her own career. I cannot really see her letting the kids be the focus and not herself. She would however, make a typical bitchy show business Mother, whom no producer would want around. Have met them in the skating world and they draw blood.
I am wondering if this is really true, if it is, Kate Gosselin you are the dregs of the earth, lower than pond scum, devil's advocate and quite a few choice words after that!!
Let these kids be kids for once!!

Jenny O said...

If this is true, she is really getting desperate. She's forgetting what happened when she took Mady and Cara to the talent scout several years ago. I feel so badly for those kids - because they don't appear to be particularly talented at dancing, singing or acting. I have no doubt Kate will make them feel like failures when they don't succeed in this latest endeavor.

Bev said...

Kate, is going to be on the View. I think they said next week. "See Kate as you have never seen her before" it said! Just saw commercial and it caught me off guard so I wasn't really paying attention until they said her name.

Amy2 said...

Wait..where did Kate get the money to send her kids to acting and dancing classes. When earlier Kate said it costs too much for the kids to participant in gymnastics. Oh, I forgot, if it benefits Kate..money is not an issue.

She is such a tool.

nothappeninganytimesoon said...

First, she will not have the money to pay for all these classes.

Second, Jon will have a say this time (I hope) since the kids are nolonger under a TLC contract and are not "working" as when they went to Australia.

Finally, How can she move to Hollywood (or anywhere in the expensive vacinity) unless she sells the McMansion? The housing market has not rebounded in Pennsylvania has it?

Just another pipe dream.

barnaby said...

I just can't see her spending the type of money necessary to even begin to market these children as having "talent."

Lessons are extremely expensive.

ronlee said...

I just saw on her twitter...she is going a Howard Stern on Sierus??? radio.... if she is telling the truth....she in my opinion is a slut.....does anyone listen to Howard? his show is a low as you can go....

Brummygirl said...

Kate is denying the rumour about the kids taking dance and acting lessons.

Ampersmom said...

A woman who said gymnast classes were to expensive now has money for dance, singing or acting classes. Not buying it

Rainbow68 said...

I think it's true, and I'll tell you why: The Enquirer is trashy, but they're pretty much always right - I'm looking at you, John Edwards. They have been sued and threatened to be sued enough that they now make sure their stories are straight.

ncgirl said...

Kate wasn't on Howard Stern's show. HS has his own channel on Sirius radio with other shows on there. The show she was on is about TV. It's hosted by Jon Hein who created the jump the shark website. He said his teen daughters were fans, and he was asking his daughters' questions for Kate so it must've been a soft interview.

"Kate, is going to be on the View. I think they said next week. "See Kate as you have never seen her before" it said"

Yeah, she's going to be on there Monday. Unless she's keeping something secret, she doesn't have much going on. A talk at a Pennsylvania college. The auction in Australia. A half marathon in Las Vegas. Maybe they feel sorry for her. It will be Halloween so the thing she can go as that we've never seen before is a nice person.

ronlee said...

What she said was
"Can I say how F.U.N. @ sirius radio is? I had a blast on the show (Howard Stern 101)and whats worth watching with Jen & Jon right now"

I take a different view...

Debbie H said...

"Where does she get the money to pay for all the dancing, etc. lessons"?I'll tell you...she's using what little bit of money that got put away for the kids from giving up their entire childhoods to finance that bitch...I suppose you can dip into it for those kinds of things...Rest assured it ain't coming out of HER stash...lol

Elvira said...

Kate vs the National Enquirer? Hm, Kate lies a lot we all know that. The National Enquirer is not always exactly right. They were the first publication willing to take on Kate's everywoman, perfect mother image though. I'd say the truth lies between it being an outright lie and total fiction. Perhaps Kate was talking of putting the kids in classes and hadn't done it yet or maybe a few of the kids are in a few classes and Kate is denying the Hollywood plan?

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

The people who will be involved in giving the kids acting and dancing classes should be forewarned as to K8's "method" of paying up for services. If the kids' showbiz careers do not work out as she plans, these people will not get paid. Look what she did to the doctor in Pa. People who do not please Her Heiny, get treated like road kill.

tate said...

I would imagine the whole thing with Kate being on the View on Monday and the show saying "see her as you've never seen her before!" means that she will have some outrageous Halloween costume on just to garner more attention. Of course, her daily hooker outfits are pretty outrageous in themselves, so she doesn't really need to try too hard.
