Plus I resent her trying to call herself Katherine, she is Katie, country fried Katie and nothing else.

______________

Where has she referred to herself as Katherine? I must have missed that!

heavennoseven said...

I hope 2012 is a year of freedom for the kids. Go Team Jon!!

Crazy woman said...

So Kate refinanced the house. She still went for an ARM and a 30 year mortgage. She's paid off some on the house.

kate is dumb as a box of rocks. They were so popular in the ratings in the Elizabeth town house, when they found the McMansion to buy, why didn't Jon and kate buy it and LEASE it to TLC for filming?

When Beverly Hills Cop filmed at the big white mansion, they paid thousands and thousands of dollars per day.

They would of paid or nearly paid for the house to be paid off.

I can't understand why she refinanced a 30 year mortgage. She should of already paid it off with all the money she has made from DWTS, the church love gifts, the books.

I guess she spends much much more going out than actually comes in.

Elvira said...

They didn't lease the house for filming to TLC for the simple reason TLC doesn't work that way. Renting a filming site for a movie is vastly different from signing a contract to put your family on reality (low budget) TV.

Hey Kate - dont keep the dog in the house?. what is wrong with you. In case you don't know, keeping a dog outside in freezing weather is crulity to animals.

Also what happened to you chickens? Did you eat them or just kill them.



Holiday shopping drives nearly everyone crazy–even some of Hollywood biggest celebrities. Despite the frenzy, FoxNews.com caught up with some very merry stars to see what’s at the top of their shopping list this year.

“Well, we are making it a big Christmas for Shoka, our German Shepherd,” mother of eight and CouponCabin.com blogger Kate Gosselin told FoxNews.com. “He is getting a tennis ball thrower and extra balls and lots of big beefy bones! The kids want to bring him in to 'open' his presents! I'm not sure how that's going to work, but that's the plan here!"

Katherine said...

She is really empty intellectually, isn't she? I wonder if she ever read a book in her entire life, even a cook book, just the back of cereal boxes and canned soup wrappers. Why she keeps twittering and creating more and more enemies is amazing.

Plus she is stupid, otherwise she would bring that dog in at night and wasn't the dog given training? So the Witch would just have to get up early to walk the dog, but me thinks she doesn't even do that.

What a sad life she has. In her 2012 predictions or whatever they were she claims in #9 that being the only parent to make decisions for 8 children is overwhelming; last time I checked those 8 children had a father, a living father with a job. It is her decision not to have this man more involved in their lives.

I promise in 2012 to totally ignore her along with most of the Realty world idiots.

BTW, did you all notice that most of those reality "stars" can't put a sentence together? Can't tell the difference between Kim K and Katie Irene.

No, her name is not Katherine, she would love that, a bit of class, huh? Farm girl, farm girl, you will never change. You blew it and whomever you screwed over at TLC finally got even with you and your demands, lol lol

ronlee said...

For one thing, she had an invisible dog fench installed. Her lazy rear does not have to get up. It appears the dog has free range in her compound. She probably has a dog house.

Berks Has Shoes! said...

Because the area is not zoned commercial. It is zoned rural/residential (agricultural).

Oh, Yes, She Does! said...

Katherine said,

+++++++++++

Perhaps with all the acreage in which to run, she figures the dog doesn't need to go for a walk!

Shoka's Understudy said...

Poor Shoka! You mean to tell me he is outside as cold as it is?

Do we know if she has a heat lamp in the dog house?

I can't understand why she won't bring him in at night to protect the kids.

She is the most disgusting, vile, insensitive boob, ever.

Giving Up The Ghost said...

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

Kate reported somewhere that Shoka's doghouse is heated. The dog apparently comes in at night because there was a discussion about the dog being able to open the slider from the inside at night.

salyco said...

Looks like Kate bought another new ride. INF has pictures of her picking up the kids in a Mercedes Sprinter van instead of the old 2004 Dodge Sprinter. Gotta keep spending that cash!

heffner road said...

Mercedes sprinter vans start at $40,320

heavennoseven said...

Really? How many cars does she own? Why not save it for good important things. Do the kids have a penny left? What if Kate spends it all. Jon can`t send all eight to college.


Poor Kids. I wonder if its a nanny when shes gone this weekend.


They also said they will not buy kids cars when they turn 16. I bet she is closing in on owning or have owned.

heffner road said...

What??? Will she get paid for this? Anyone know how much.

Hey Australia! I just found out Season 2 of Kate+8 is starting Jan 19 on Discovery Home&Health! I'll see you then!XOK8

Elspeth said...

No, reality show personalities almost never get residuals. They aren't part of the guild so they aren't covered by the negotiations and the networks do not offer residuals unless forced.

NEWS PHOTOS VIDEOS STYLE Bodies Bad Fashion Hot Looks Surgery STAR SIGNS BEST OF WEB MORE About Us Send Tips Contact Us Licensing U-Pap Posted by INF Daily, Friday 01/06/2012, 11:06 am Exclusive Pics: Is Kate Gosselin Contemplating a $13 Haircut? Kate Gosselin had the day to herself yesterday, which meant errands! The infamous mom took to her local photography store, where she stocked up on a few frames. Hey, that’s one of the advantages of having eight kids – they generate lots of photos to hang on the walls. We were a little confused by Kate’s open-toed footwear. What was the temperature in West Reading yesterday? It averaged 38 degrees, with a “feels like” of 32. Kate must have some crazy warm toes. How much do we love the photo of Kate next to Great Clips, and their sign for $13 haircuts? Can you imagine?

Shoka's Understudy said...

I came across a detailed video of the camping trip to Alaska with the Palins. I was just dumbfounded the way kate acted. She could not stand it that the kids were having a good time with out her, even though she was there.

I read somewhere in an article that kate when she was under the tent with 19 layers on was complaining to Julie May Carson.

kate was completely rude to Sarah saying, me and camping, dead stop.

Also, I read today that a bungee jumper at Victoria Falls jumped of a bridge and the cord snapped.

Sarah Palin acted with class. kate acted like a stupid @&&!

I wonder if the girls begged Jon to go on the cruise and he agreed. You know kate hyped them up on it. I hope it falls through, because why would you want to take your young daughters on a ship on a cruise ship that just had a young lady assaulted?

PA Woman said...

Did Jon get any time with the kids over the holiday break? I know he didn't have them on Christmas, what about New Years? It seems like, at least based on Kate's tweets, that she had them pretty much the whole time. i don't go to Kates twitter, or anyone else's for that matter, but look at the thread for them on hear, it seems she pretty much referenced the kids everyday.

It seems that Kate will be home from Vegas for a day before she takes off for a long weekend in Bermuda.

There are red flags all over this supposed charity and fundraiser...

This is the web site of the oh-so legitmate (NOT) charity:
http://syncairlyyours.com/

Very, very amateur in many ways... plus if you open the powerpoint file that advertises the event the graphics, etc look like they were done by a 5th grader.

Biggest indication that this so-called Diamonds and Caviar event is a grifter paradise is that one of the lead organizers is Qadree El- Amin ... google him and the first link that comes up is a rip-off report where it is reported that he scammed children and emptied his mother-in-law's bank account.

Truly pathetic.

Shoka's Understudy said...

I feel so sorry for those kids having to eat like a organic exotic bird.

Thank God for Jon and Ellen!

Dr. Praeger’s Vege Patties

I think the friend for lunch was Steve.

Also she says in the article that 2 sweet potatoes were rolling around in the bottom of the drawer and that she had NEVER made them before. I KNOW she has made sweet potato fries before, because I read it. Busted! Why would she just buy 2 sp's and let them roll in the bottom of a refrigerator drawer?

Looks like she has her food on a paper plate.

http://www.kateplusmy8.com/menu-monday-4/

Techymum said...

Sorry to get nitpicky, but I wouldn't fault K8 if she actually were to feed this to her kids (whom weren't referred to, so I doubt they were lucky enough to get it). Other than the fact that 1/2 of the items were pre-made, I find it more interesting and healthy than the blah, cheese heavy, high sodium recipes she has put up before.

"I feel so sorry for those kids having to eat like a organic exotic bird."

Elvira said...

Hm, I make that avocado/tomato salad regularly. Kate wants to pretend she suddenly made potato fries?

Although that has a close resemblance to some meals in my house so I can't say much more.

Dream A Little Dream said...

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

I don't think that the kids ate that. She made it for her "lunch friend."


"Looks like she has her food on a paper plate."

I thought so, too, and so I enlarged it. It's definitely not paper. You can see the edging on it, as well as the pattern (different color) in the center of the plate.

kinman said...

She will do anything to keep herself "relevant" and she just refuses to go away! If Jon had done these Vegas trips and long Bermuda weekends, he would have been totally criticized. He is still being made fun of on television after all of this time! Kate can say it is for charity or whatever, and get a free vacation whenever she wants(and Bermuda is one of the most expensive places to go)and her little gaggle of followers will think she is a saint. She is gone more than she is home, and I cannot believe she is making any real money doing these trips. She is just so happy to fulfill her own personal dreams of traveling, while the kids do not get to go anywhere anymore, because it is all about her. She will say "Mommy is working" but she could still manage to take one or two of them on the weekend trips with her and Steve to broaden their travel horizons as well. She probably has enough of an entourage so that someone could watch them while she is "working".

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

He did and he was. Remember the pool party at a hotel in Vegas. Rumor was he was paid $10K for that. He he was ripped apart. He was doing the same thing Kate is doing today. Trying to use his 15 minutes of fame to make a living.

Remember the yaghting with the ED Hardy T-shirt guy? Jon was ripped for that. They were using Jon's 15 minutes in front of the pap for advertizing. I'm sure Jon was getting something for being their model.

Everyone said Jon was a sleeze for it and should get a real job. Well, he did that and now they say he doesn't make enough to support his kids....in the means Kate wants them supported at any rate.

I didn't hold it against Jon and to be honest I don't hold it against Kate (as long as the kids are kept out of it). Well known people are paid to "show-up" at places all the time, including the newest late night hot spot.

Lets see if Kate learns as quickly as Jon that the fame is gone and that she can't continue to support herself that way.

Nova said...

Lets see if Kate learns as quickly as Jon that the fame is gone and that she can't continue to support herself that way. --------------------------- I really doubt that. From everything I have seen about Khate, and the experiences I've had with narcissists like her, I do not believe she will ever stop trying to be in the public eye and go to living a normal life. I don't believe she loves her children in the way that most people do, she loves what they can do for her and how she can blame them for things, just as she did when she was married to Jon. I also believe that if she can't find work on TV for herself, she'll do anything to keep herself out there. She'll continue to tweet and blog about the kids. (snip) But in the end, when Khate can't sell herself, she'll farm out those kids any way she can. They'll be traveling around doing song and dance shows at county fairs and appearing in commercials as soon as she decides that's where the real money lies. She's probably already trying to hook up with other fame-whore moms out there. Deena Lohan, has she contacted you yet? How about the Kardashion so-called Mom? Nova Save the Gosselin 8

Katherine said...

The other night, I think it was Wed? At 9 pm, TLC played Kate +8 and it was the first show with Kate and no John. It was the Tups 6th birthday. Remember when she had all that free stuff. Well, just looking at the boxes and boxes of shoes, sneakers, flip flops, etc., on her table and the kids trying on said items, was just sickening. No wonder she has those bins and bins in the basement with EVERYTHING SHE EVER GOT HER HANDS ON that was free. I had to turn, of course, she is so very, very sickening when you look at her, after her make over and how she changed from the original shows, she is as phony as they come. The kids appear to be even more spoiled and Kate just flits around with her bikini type suits and then the phony speech, which, if my recollection of English is good, I would say Katie never did know how to speak. Me thinks she does not like her kids. Honestly, I don't think she does. It showed in the first 10 min of the show and then I turned the channel. So, who gets paid for these shows being re aired?

heffner road said...

Does anyone know how many people booked for her i.e. "cruise" I believe they had until 1/15/2012??? Am I correct?

Shoka's Understudy said...

Can the person that called and asked about kate's cruise call back and ask how many people booked the cruise, or they may not want to give that information out.

They have until May 15, when final payment is due.

Bad Moon Rising said...

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

Not Kate, unless her contract states that she gets residuals, which typically doesn't happen on reality television.

Elvira said...

Who gets paid for the episodes re-airing? No one. TLC is using them as filler. They own them and may use them as they will.

SuzieO said...

Kate plus 8 episode in which she answers your questions was on yesterday but not on TLC. It was channel 222 DFH. I'm not sure what DFH stands for but most of the shows on there are reality type shows like I didn't know I was pregnant, Freaky Eaters, etc. Does this mean another network has bought it? This network also shows episodes of the Duggars.

Kate to be on Extra.

Baaaad dress choice.

Shoka's Understudy said...

minerva, I agree!

Bad choice of dress for a MOM of 8 pre-teen children!

It looks like a top you would wear to a disco over the wide leg pants.

She is just missing the rainbow wig.

I think you can see her underwear under the dress. It looks like white lace, cut really high up in the back.

So funny at the clinic the other day. The fire dept. comes in from time to time to help transfer me over to the chair. 3 FD guys walked in and the first guy that walked up to me looked EXACTLY like Steve! I was shocked! Same height, same hair, same age, same classy look as Steve Neild. I almost said, STEVE?

Then I looked over and I saw Steve, not Neild, but another Steve that I hadn't seen in a long while. Shook his hand, Made my DAY!

Also, his wife and I share the same first name! lol

dan said...

i saw those pictures on radar...i never saw a woman whose legs are bigger than her thighes..ha ha ha she is an oddly proportianed lady

Katherine said...

I want her to go so far away that no one has an interest in her. I wonder who it is that gets her the free trips to LAX and blurbs on TV shows?

I wonder how jealous she is of the Kardashian family? They are all no better than prostitutes with everything they will do on TV for money.

If Kate is ever given another show with her kids, she will expose them even more than she did when they were little tykes.

I just don't get any of this, I really don't. Why and how does she get TV time?

This is a woman with no talent, none. She ran a marathon, or so I heard, and then what?

Is the world of TV expose nothing more than "well if we can't get a real talent, let's call on Katie?"

Someone straighten out my thinking on this because I do not understand how she remains in the foreground.

Alien Encounter said...

Shoka said..."I think you can see her underwear under the dress. It looks like white lace, cut really high up in the back."

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

It's a thong. The outline is clearly visible from the back. Shame on her. She should have looked at herself in the mirror before she ventured out like that.

ncgirl said...

DFH stands for Discovery Fitness and Health. Discovery also owns TLC so they can show their old shows on their channels.

Mary said...

Hi

Saw pictures on Radar. that Black man Heavy set is one of her body guards. Look at past photo's I thought he was there to guard kids so why does she need two body guards. This proves to me Steve is NOT here body guard

barbee said...

One pic shows a woman who looks kind of like Gina and rather than looking at kate she is looking at Steve with a disgusted look on her face. It's even funnier to see if it ISN'T Gina.

Heffner Rd from Florida said...

Apparently she is back home in Pa. What was the big deal flying to Ca.? for what?


Kateplusmy8: GM all... Seeing snow and dreaming of warm sunny weather to get through it... I'm SO not a winter girl....winter, be gone already

She is a Joke said...

If I had children, and especially 8, I would be saving every penny....I would have invested every cent so that my children, who will need help throughout their lives from all these DVDs and utube videos.

She is very ill mentally. She really believes that everyone is jealous of her. I wonder what type of thinking that is?

Even now, what does she get for a cruise other than a free cruise? Her other children, the tups, will be alone for 7 days while Katie cruises.

Why doesn't John do something before there is no money, there is no house, land, etc., and all Katie has is her shoe collection.

Waiting for Hugh Hefner putting her in his magazine for $1,000.00 because it is heading in that direction. She is in a thong in a see thru dress, up to her upper thighs and she really thinks she is attractive? I would think that she is heading toward the soft porn industry, no doubt about that.

Still wasting money said...

Does anyone know if she really re mortgaged her estate for an arm mortgage? Does she need the money to reinvest in HERSELF, is that what she is doing?

Still trying to create a career in show business?

Very sad, she could have been going to school all this time and have a good job and be able to downsize and provide for her children.

But this is not about her children, is it?

Oh, Yes She Does! said...

Even now, what does she get for a cruise other than a free cruise? Her other children, the tups, will be alone for 7 days while Katie cruises.

$$$$$

I'm not sure if it's been confirmed which children will be going on the cruise.

"Why doesn't John do something before there is no money, there is no house, land, etc., and all Katie has is her shoe collection."

$$$$$

What should he do? It's been established that 15 percent had to be put into a trust for the children, but that the money could be withdrawn for their health, education, welfare. As long as she is making an account for that money, exactly what can Jon do? Take away her credit cards? He pays child support, and in PA, there is no accountability law. She is not required to report to anyone how the money is being spent...unfortunately. Jon would get laughed right out of court. Sadly, Kate has the upper hand in the money-managing department.

FROM HOLLY BABY

What the heck does Kate need her ‘bodyguard’ for and how can she afford him anyway? The unemployed mom-of-eight isn’t warding off screaming fans here on Extra!
Kate Gosselin is doing everything she can to get a full-time TV gig. The former reality star stopped by LA’s The Grove to be interviewed on Extra by host Mario Lopez and she definitely looked great! She showed off her tanned and toned figure in a very short silver mini. But what is her bodyguard Steve Neild protecting her from?
Kate can definitely be polarizing at times but some of Hollywood’s biggest names like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie don’t walk around with a protection. Do you think she does it so she can seem important?

Also, we know TLC was paying for Steve’s salary. Now that Kate Plus 8 has been canceled, who’s footing the bill? Kate is working part-time at CouponCabin as a blogger but that’s not enough for these lavish perks! She was so worried that she would go broke during an interview with People, so how have things changed?

Do you think this is diva behavior from Kate?

heavennoseven said...

I do wish Jon controlled the kids money, but her. The money will be gone if Kate controls it. `m sure she uses it to pay for that private school etc.

Her dress looks like one that would be worn by a teenage tv star.

Too sad and Too crazy said...

I couldn't get into the Recorder of Deeds, but wow, if she is draining her few areas of funds; then this is very sad, as she could end up homeless with these 8 children due to being so obsessed by stardom.

She sounds to me like she has crossed the boundaries of being sane. If Steve is taking her money and arranging all of this and knows that by now if no one has offered Katie Irene a job in TV land than it isn't going to come, than shame on him for playing along with all of this. 8 children's lives are at stake here.

This is now sadder than I thought it possibly could be, she cannot live without a camera on her, I bet she will be walking around naked before long to get paps to photograph her, anything, just anything for attention.

Debbie H said...

I am sure that Kate is positive that the "big bucks" and movie deals are just around the corner...I mean, who among us can't see that she is destined to be the next major movie star???So, I am sure she feels that spending all the money left til that happens in the near future is no big deal...I mean, she is investing in herself and it's going to pay off big time, right???She will get back millions when Steven Spielburg calls her and we all know that's going to happen....To quote Anna Nicole..."It takes a lot of money to be me"....

Katherine said...

A flight for her, Steve, her other bodyguard and who else? Did they all need hotel rooms, meals, make up artist, hairdresser, dress, shoes, driver of rented Limo? What must all that cost for 1 or 2 nights and what is the return for all of that? Some 60 seconds on TV? Some photos in Radar, etc., and she is back home hating the snow or the children?

Yep, she has "drunk the kool aid" and there is no turning back for her as she claws her way to what?

Nothing she is doing is paying her any real money. Like money to pay a couple of mortgages.

Wow, she is a looney toon!

Who would go on a cruise with her?
Oh, I guess there are a few hundred of you who adore her, but 7 days?

She better find herself a husband real fast and he better have some bucks.

Shoka's Understudy said...

Someone posted on ROL that kate went to Indiana and Australia in Nov.

Las Vegas in December and

Los Angeles in January.

That is 701.88 miles to Indiana

2129.13 miles to Las Vegas

2341.03 miles to Los Angeles

9048.04 miles to Australia

Total air mileage: 14,200 miles in less than 3 months.

A poor, struggling, "single-mom" that cried her heart out on the Today show complaining that she couldn't pay the bills in her purse and could not drop them in the mail and after the taping go to NOBU and gulp down a $174 lunch for her and her bodyguard, does not travel like this! and with her favorite bodyguard.

I wished I knew what day that kate went to IN, because I could pinpoint exactly how many miles per day from that day till the day she got back from LA, so the total air mileage would be higher. Right now, divided by 3 months it is 244 miles per day. Less days would make it much higher.

Shoka's Understudy said...

On ROL there are some side pictures, seven of them and I clicked on them and:

No. 5 is actress Kate Beckinsale's pretty picture

No. 6 is kate gosselin,in her silver fox see thru thong dress

No. 7 is actor Toby McGuire, do I need to say more? Love Spiderman!
To have her sandwiched in between those two great actors is soooooooo stupid and wrong.

Shoka's Understudy said...

Also there is a picture of kate and Steve and under it there is a picture of the capsized Concordia, the Italian cruise ship.

I just thought that was weird.

Debbie H said...

So, does ANYBODY know the purpose of the big LA trip???Was it JUST to be on TV for a few seconds???Or is she out there begging some more for anything that will put her face on a camera???I just don't get it...at all...but then, I like to think of myself as somewhat "normal", so maybe I'm never going to get it...lol

Heffner Road from Florida said...

TO; to sad and to crazy

on the recorder of deeds you must sign in and create a user name an pass word and then sign in...

In the name section Type Gosselin and the township is Lower Heidelberg.

anyway the deed was recorded on 12/7/2012 to Katie Gosselin
consideration/secured in the amount of $661,573.00

The assessed value of the home is around $440,000


She is underwater...

Techymum said...

Well isn't that mortgage information interesting. And sad. The entire value of the home is mortgaged. Way to go Katie I Gosselin.

Those poor kids, every time I think it can't get worse it does.

Re the Assessed value: I believe it is less than the resale value just as on my taxes. I don't know how they figure taxes, but ours is definitely less than the amount we would get if we sold it.

Debbie H said...

Heffner Road...She may or may not be underwater currently...You can't always go by assessed tax values...They are rarely reflective of the actual market value of a house...I'm a former Realtor, and the best way to determine the actual market value of her house would be to do a comparative market analysis(CMA).It would be interesting if anyone on here lives in her area and could see what homes have sold for in the area lately...Hers is unique, though, because it's not in a subdivision of similar homes and it's probably not typical of too many homes close by her that have sold in the past 6-12 months,so her house would have to be appraised using a different method...Maybe a cost approach or something...But, I am not familiar at all with the Pennsylvania real estate market or tax appraiser:) I don't know if she lives close to Beth, but I suppose their houses are similar in size and land amount..Would be interesting if you could see what the tax value of their house is...Also, maybe look through some real estate sales close by and see what things have been going for...would give a good picture..Anyone could probably do that online now..But it doesn't look good, admittedly, for the tax value to be less than half of what she paid for the thing:)

Sadder said...

OMG, she is underwater and about to be homeless? What in the world would make someone get so in debt when they had nothing, earned millions and then lost a TV show, so she spent all the money she had to get plastic surgery and new breasts plus pay Steve? First class limo and airplane fare?

Can't say that anything she ever wore was worth anything except for a couple of pieces of jewelry, I think.........guess she will be having a yard sale in the Spring.

Katie is not good looking said...

Saw the photo(s) on radaronline, the back of her with the dress hem uneven and the dress so tight that you see her butt and thong. she would be unable to sit down with that dress. It is ugly.

She has no smarts or she would be on the telephone calling everyone and trying to get all the free bees that the K family seems to get.

Plus the BHHW seem to get a lot of free bees, but wow, Katie only gets a coffe pot.

Time to go on the Bachelorette, huh?

I'm 60 years old and have been around long enough to see flash in the pans on the downward spiral. The personality starts up the hill and perks, freebies and money is thrown at the person. Then they start to believe that everything is going to last forever. That's when they buy the big house, fancy/expense cars, expensive clothes, take expensive vacation. Now they reach the top of hill and start to slide down the other. The money and offers dry up, can't afford the big house, car, vacation, etc. Next step is taking any gig they can get and then on to bankruptcy. They now enter the others has beens as in Kate who? Whatever happen to ? the only difference with this slide is that Kate is taking 8, count them 8 kids with her. (snip)

The assessed value of the home is around $440,000


She is underwater...

========

Assessed value is NOT market value. It is not the price at which she would list the home if it were for sale. Based on other homes in the area and given the uniqueness of the property (with all of the land), comps may not be available. However, if she would get a offer of $695,000 to $725,000 for that property, she should grab it. She's definitely underwater. I've been looking at real estate in the area...

When was the last assessment done? I live in PA and the last one in our County was 2002. Even with the housing bubble, most homes sell by quite a bit more than the assessment.

Maybe the reason Katie has gone back to family (Jon"s) he own is so she can bleed them for money

Katherine said...

There is something that never seems to be said or printed anywhere, but I do remember that John tried to say this on the Larry King Show "Kate is following what someone else is telling her to do" and he never named a person; yet, I believe and I sincerely mean this, that Kate was "paralyzed by Steve" and I do mean she fell "head over heels with this man and he has managed to steer her in this sexy direction vs being a Mom in the Press and that he has managed to get her to spend her money, even though now she has no income since the show was cancelled".....he is no longer employed by TLC? What happened there?

Why did he steer her "makeover" to the sexy side? Breast implants, hair, etc.?

Why did he not keep her as a Mom and steer her in that direction as she certainly would have made money having a show about children, recipes, etc., but no, it is all about Katie the Sexpot?

Katie seems to have been "taken for a ride by this Steve" and it is something no one has said anything about.

Who is he? Where did he come from? Is he receiving a salary from Katie?

John, have you more information about this Svengali?

He appears with that same blue shirt on to match his blue eyes and is everywhere that Kate is when she is not in PA?

I do not think that Katie is smart or even on the bright side. I think what she managed to do was gain attention when she was pregnant and that is what gained TLC's attention..but she sat on that white plastic chair yelling at everyone as if to say "I hate my life, my life is boring, no one likes me, everyone is jealous of me, I am a good Mom" and yet she never got off the chair except to be interviewed on some show.

Along comes Steve and Katie is exercising, doing the hair thing with weird hair cuts, etc., and out the door goes John. Steve moves into the house? Steve lives in the house and John is moved to the upper level of the barn?

Perhaps what has not been said is that Steve has managed to Con Kate and has managed to get her some "gigs" but now when I read that Kate has remortgaged her home to get money for what? More attempts to get on TV, more posing with a mini skirt I wouldn't let a teenager wear? This is a 36 yr old women with a thong on standing at The Grove being interviewed, not like a mother of 8, but trying to attract the attention of who? No one is going to hire her, is Steve still telling her that her jogging, her coupon blog is another avenue toward what? Another show on TV? Meanwhile what is Steve being paid?

John, get off your butt and make sure your children are being taken care of, even if you have to appeal to a Judge to open up the financials of your children.

Please, someone look into this Steve character, Con men have managed to deplete the bank accounts of the most famous women we know, i.e.: Debbie Reynolds, Elizabeth Montgomery, Doris Day, etc., it is never ending.

Kate thinks Steve loves her? Well if she is paying him, he loves her money.

I think this has to be printed and Steve has to step up to the plate and talk about who he is and what he does as it affects 8 children's future and home vs homeless.

Techymum said...

In regard to the date posted earlier, the date on the document is actually 2011. There is reference to 2008, so it would make sense to me that the renewal for the mortgage was up. (Not sure how it runs in the US as I live in Canada.) The new mortgage term is valid until 2042. Yep - 30 years. It also refers to her "in trust" of some sort. Do we have any realtors/lawyers on board here? I almost could read that as the house is "in trust" for the kids - but now they have a 30 year full mortgage on it....what a crappy deal.

Well said Katherine.

If all you said is true, Steve does not owe US an explaination. We as the public are not a party to this.

If true, it impacts the lives of the children. It should be kept between the courts, and the parents (both parents).
And I say the parents, because Kate is the responsible party here. Not Steve. If Steve is doing something eligal, kate can sue him. But she is the one responsible for spending the kids money.

Just Plain Nuts said...

Wow, I guess we do wonder who it is that is her Manager, don't we?

I was thinking, this is none of our business, but she kind of made this our business when she put those kids on TV and did so much in the public limelight, like Kim Kardashian saying"my divorce is no one's business but mine" and yet she got married on TV!!!!!

Brain Trusts, huh?

that is one mother who needs to get herself off of TV and be a real mother, if she knows what that means. Again, married to a man who does nothing to protect his 2 younger daughters, sad.

Elvira said...

Property being in trust does not mean in trust for the children. It's a legal construct that the Gosselins originally used because they didn't want the general public to know that they had bought the large house. The plan at first was to continue filming at the old house.

Brummygirl said...

So all this boils down to, is Kate renewing her mortgage at today's rate. Where does all the conjecture come from that she has taken money from the house?
I must have missed something here, can someone enlighten me please?
Although really, it is not my business, but you made me curious.

ncgirl said...

Katherine, I've never understood Kate's relationship with Steve. Some people think they're a couple, but I'm not sure. Kate's manager is Julie Carson May, and she is supposed to be getting Kate jobs. I just don't understand the need for Steve after the show got cancelled.

His wife and sons must've gotten alot of flak because of Kate. Kate is a lost cause. Does he really believe she is marketable? Surely there are better employment prospects for him.

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

Why? He owes nobody any explanation. Any financials or disclosures are between Kate, Jon and the courts. The public does not have the right to know how the trusts are set up, who is in control of them, who has access to them, etc. However, if the parties would suspect that something is not being administered according to the ruling of the courts and trust documents, they have the right to file whatever motions they deem necessary to have the financials opened up.

Oh, yes, they do. ;)

Katharine, if you want to read about Steve and where he came from and what he did, his website is accessible on the internet. Google Steven Neild Prudential Associates Risk Management and Security Cconsulting. That should answer some of your questions.

Debbie H said...

Brummygirl, I think the concern(for lack of a better word) over the mortgage was that a) she STILL had a mortgage after all the money she made...it would have been smart to actually PAY off the house if she could have afforded to...and b)that she mortgaged so much that you wonder what happened to the equity???So people are assuming that she spent what equity was in the KIDS house...meaning less money for them later...and MORE for her NOW...

Debbie H said...

I am curious why Kate is on Dr. Drews show...she is not an expert on his panel of about 30 people(I know that killed her)...so is she going there to seek help???That's surely what she needs...GOOD ADVICE AND LOTS OF IT...

Mary said...

A comment on properties in Berks County where Kate is. The last time they did a countywide assessment was in 1992. When the Gosselins purchased the house it was assessed at $482,900 even though they paid 1.2 million. Her taxes are based on the $482,900 not the purchase price. She is actually paying taxes on the price of the home when it was built in 1998.

If you have owned a home for a long time you definitely have an advantage tax wise. If you build a new home you are paying taxes on the current value of the home which is a lot more than back in 1992.

For example, my parents had a small home they owned in Berks County and it was assessed at $82,000. It was sold 3 years ago for $162,000. The people who bought it will still only pay taxes on the assessed value of $82,000. Obviously, people who purchase a newly built home don't like it and want the county to do a new assessment for everybody.

Don't know if that helps to make things clearer.

Sounds like the G's had a balloon
note that expired, perhaps part of their creative financing at the time the house was bought.
Many people refinance for various

installing solar panels, another
to provide a lavish wedding.
Unless she is using the refinancing to pay off other debts or to provide current cash would lead to future complications.

######################

Do we know she kept any cash as part of the refinancing? Kate just had a change in income with the show being cancel. She may have needed to bring down the payments by spreading it out over a longer time period. After all, her pay check just got quite a bit smaller.

If she's paid off around $660K on a $1.2 millon purchase price, I have to say that is better then I expected, from Kate anyway. Sure, she could have paid it all off, and that would have been the smart thing to do. But this is Kate. Of course about $200K came from the sale of the old house.

Brummygirl asked: "Aren't houses re-assessed every year for taxes?"

It depends on the locale. Where I live, every time a house sells for more than its assessed value, it is automatically reassessed at the sale price. If a house sells for less than its assessed value, it doesn't get reassessed. The new owner has to pay taxes on the higher value. As for all the houses in the county - it depends. Generally reassessment is done every couple of years in neighborhoods that have had a lot of sales with prices going up. If sales prices have remained steady in a neighborhood, that neighborhood is unlikely to be reassessed. I'm not sure that property valuation is even standard from county to county. It definitely isn't standard from state to state.

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

Are you in PA? in PA assessed values are determined on a county based-year system. In my county the last time there was a county wide reassessment was 2002. So all assessed values for tax purposed are based on a 2002 value. If you home sells in 2012, they take a ration to determine the 2002 value and the is the amount listed for assessment. it is not the current fair-market value. It sound like in Kates location the base year is 1992.

That is the current system. from the state. There are some county versus State law suits going on about it. Plus, some school districts are trying to say it doesn't apply to them and try and charge taxes based on fair-market value.

Actually, what is Kate living on?? Doubt that anything she is doing pays $100,000 a month. Jon is working two jobs?? What are salaries in the PA area?? We've all experienced downsizing in life but trying to maintain the diva budget is pure lunacy. Reganless of location, the cost of living is high everywhere. $5 a gallon gas sill clip a lot of wings this summer.

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

I was thinking the same thing when I posted about her re-financing. What did she use as income on the re-finance application?

I live in PA and couldn't tell you what salaries are in her area. they vary from location to location. I'm in Pittsburgh and the salaries are lower then in Philly for example.

Besides, Jon's salary should have nothing to do with the house. he would be paying child support to Kate, but nothing on the mortgage directly.

Debbie H said...

Jon's salary may have nothing to do with the house as he isn't an owner, I suppose..But his child support is income that Kate can list to get a loan...

Nantucket Bound said...

"Actually, what is Kate living on?? Doubt that anything she is doing pays $100,000 a month."

##################

Why does she need $100,000 a month?

Katherine said,

What happened there,,,Why did he not keep her as a Mom and steer her in that direction as she certainly would have made money having a show about children, recipes, etc., but no, it is all about Katie the Sexpot? Katie seems to have been "taken for a ride by this Steve" and it is something no one has said anything about. ?

###########

I don't believe that anyone really knows who is paying Steve. It could be that TLC is still funding him through February.

Kate did make money on a show about children and being a "mom." It was called Kate Plus Eight, and her children were indeed part of it. Of course, it was also about her, but without her children on there, the show would have bitten the dust faster than it did.

Kate did try the recipe book without being a "sexpot", but that never saw the light of day. Kate did try a pilot for a show (Paula Deen), but that never made it, either. Kate was touting Twist of Kate, probably encouraged by Steve (I don't think it had anything to do with being sexy), but that never materialized either. Kate did try the children's clothing line, but that ended up overseas.

She's been a failure at everything, and I doubt that Steve had anything to do with it. The failure happened when Jon left because her show was nothing without him. She couldn't do it on her own, regardless of whether she was a "sexpot" or a Mom.

TV 101 said...

However, Steve is around, TLC isn't paying the bill. When a TV show goes out of production, the network quits paying for it or anything related to it except the shutting down production and closing out the books costs. There will have been nothing paid toward Kate's show in months. Kate was under contract for a period of time, but there are release clauses in the TV contracts to cover shows ending. In effect ending the contract at that point. So Steve is there because he wants to be or Kate has found a way to compensate him.

Has anyone seen the video of her grand interview on Extra???I could never find it..Was it on TV or just on the web? If anyone has a link, please post it..Thanks:)

I've been waiting to see if Extra puts up the video. They have put up Jason O'Mara who had the interview earlier the day of Kate's. Tonight on the aired show they had Brad Garrett. They usually tape two interviews at The Grove a day and then normally end up using only one of them.

The interaction between Kate and Jon made the show as much as the kids did. Kate plus 8 just feel flat without the interaction. She couldn't carry it on her own.

Shoka's Understudy said...

Here is a link to kate and Steve at the Grove in LA. Not the Extra interview, but just right after it.

kate is forced by Steve to take some pictures with fans. You could tell she did not want to do it. The first one is a cute teenage girl. After the first few ones she took, she would turn and try to walk off that little stage. But Steve kept directing people to come up.

One woman went up to her and kate said, Oh, my. She was trying to leave and it was killing her that she couldn't afford to have a meltdown!

A really nice looking blonde haired young guy, kinda looked like Linda Hogan's young bf (Hulk Hogan's ex wife) came up to get his picture with kate and he said he was her biggest fan. When they finished he said he loved her but he said it in a sweet sincere way and she said, oh, yeah.

Then she turns to try to go to Steve and a woman steps up to get a picture and she says, oh, my!

She just could not wait to get to Steve in her sexy sleek silver dress and get to the closest NOBU for supper!

Sharla said...

Apparently Kate's appearance at The Grove wasn't even good enough for online. They've moved on to another day's guest.

Shoka's Understudy said...

I would like to see the Extra Grove interview. I think it was oozing me, me, I, hum, uh, duh, doh, um...

It must of been really awful for them to not show it on tv and then don't post it on their website.

I hope that Extra paid the tab for her and Steve going out first class for everything.

At least that is money kate didn't spend and maybe have some money for the kids.

Jon should get a guardian for those kids over the money. There was a celebrity whose ex wife owed a lot of debt and he was afraid she would pay them off and not use the money for their child. He asked for a guardian where she could not touch it, but his needs would be supplied.

Those Freaky Fans said...

"She just could not wait to get to Steve in her sexy sleek silver dress and get to the closest NOBU for supper!"

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

Don't forget that if you listen closely, when Steve asks her to greet some fans, she says, "I don't want to." It's right there on audio. You can hear it. She can't erase it, but I bet they pull the clip.

I don't think it was so much a matter of her not being able to wait to get to Steve in her sexy dress. I think she would have gone to ANYONE familiar, any person she knew, rather than having to do a meet and greet with the fans, for whom she clearly showed nothing but disdain. "Just get me away from them!"

"The interaction between Kate and Jon made the show as much as the kids did. Kate plus 8 just feel flat without the interaction. She couldn't carry it on her own."

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

Exactly. Steve didn't push her into being a "sexpot" or femme fatale, or have anything to do with the show being cancelled. It bit the dust because she, on her own, couldn't attract viewers. Ratings went down, and she was done. She can't carry anything on her own, regardless if she's tries to be a Hollywood diva or just a plain old Mom.

So she only had 3 or 4 people want to take a picture with her and she wasn't even grateful for THAT???This woman just feels plain entitled to fame and stardom and doesn't want to do a damn thing for it...Amazing...I feel absolutely sorry for the cruise people(if any actually do go)...Imagine how you'd feel if you paid lots of money to meet this bitch and got treated like these few people at the Grove...Makes it that much more amazing to me she has garnered as much attention this long...At least we know why NOBODY will give her a TV job...She may as well give that dream up along with the finding the rich sugar daddy dream...Ain't neither one of those EVER going to happen for HER..

Sadder said...

She actually looks uncomfortable. Remember she is not bright. That is what her problem was with her own show K+8, no interaction other than demanding, screaming, screeching, running around in very little clothing but NEVER did she interact with the people in NY's China Town, at any of the Venues she attended with the kids, she hides, she actually hides because she thinks if she just smiles, poses, wears the heels, has the look with the makeup and hair that it will be enough.

Damn it, she does not have a personality. She only interacted with John and she did the same as above with screaming, demanding, screeching, yelling and he yelled back or reacted in other ways. When she was by herself with the kids, she couldn't even hold conversations with those kids. We did not get to know the kids on a Mom/kid type situation, it was always Kate yelling at all of them.

I doubt we will ever know her because she does not know how to be friendly, hold a conversation, engage us.

She tried to interview and fell on her face because she did not know how to talk about anything but HERSELF and her kids. Remember that basketball player, who was like 8 ft tall, he asked her who she was and she said "I'm the Mom with the 8 kids" and he looked so puzzled? I think it was Entertainment tonight, they tried to use her and she fell flat on camera, she still does.

BTW, that dress on film with an uneven hem and her with the 5 inch heels from Gucci, made the dress look like a tunic top and an incomplete outfit, she should have had slacks on with that outfit.....I don't know if Steve is the one getting her "prettied up" but it is backfiring, look at all the layers of makeup on in the Extra video, terrible skin.

She also had 2 bodyguards, who would want her?

Guess that is why she didn't work with Paula Deen on a talk show, she cannot talk, she cannot put herself out there because she has nothing to say, nothing.

Very sad.

It is everybody's choice if they choose to go on the cruise, but if they do, I do not feel sorry for them in anyway. A child could not go without a parent ok. An adult will need to live with the decision they make and not beg ignorance. I think Mady is desparate to please Kate and will do whatever she wants. Cara worries me. She is unhappy. She was a bigtime Daddy's girl and it has to hurt her for Kate to put him down. She is just a little girl. She is getting older and I can see her getting away in any way that she can in a few years. I just hope she is safe. I feel ALexis is not far behind her.

That's one reason, but it isn't the main reason. She cannot succeed on a talk show, either as a host or being interviewed, because she has nothing new to contribute. We've been hearing the same old pity story and Jon bashing since the divorce. It's over. It's old. And, of course, the strings of um's and honestly, is very annoying. She can't speak. Period. She could take a year of speech/communication lessons and I doubt it anything would improve.

I came across an interesting news bit that may explain why K8 has veen smiling as of late. It concerned a long-time Oprah associate leaving the new OWN network.

"Rita Mullin, senior vice president of content strategy for Discovery Fit & Health, will step into [that] position in the interim . . . Mullin has also served as vice president of development at TLC, where she developed such hits as "Jon & Kate Plus 8" and "18 Kids and Counting."

Oh no ... could THIS be her next move ?

OWN is one of the few channels that airs NO paid programming, but if it shows one second of that plastic face and vacuous, veneered sneer, I'll block the signal.

She is unbelievable, as much as she throws Jon under the bus. She still tries to look good in good light.

Maybe we should start writing the OWN network now. Oprah will notlike the idea of losing money and fans, for those that are.

As their dad, couldn't Jon insist they be under the care of a child psychologist? I know kate would tell them what they could and could not say but a doctor is use to that and should be able to tell.

The kids worry me. Especially Cara, Alexsis, and Aaden. They all look scared and lost. But those 3 look desparate.

sausage said...

(snipped manners) It was a simple beans recipe that substituted sausage for hot dogs. I can't imagine, though, putting all those beans together and then adding even more beans in the chili. There was enough sodium in there to dry up a lake. Doesn't she read labels?

That we are just chomping at the bit waiting for queen kate to bless us with a new recipe revelation.

Thought she took sleeping pills and sleeps through the flights to knock herself out.

I guess when Steve tells her it's time to get off the plane, she doesn't slap him across the face, just her kids.

About the "beans" recipe...shows you how really "health"conscious and all she is...lol

The Name Game said...

Plus I resent her trying to call herself Katherine, she is Katie, country fried Katie and nothing else.

$$$$$$$$$$$$$
Playing catch-up here. When and where did Kate call herself Katherine? On television? In an interview? Was this recently?

Jennifer said...

I think the kids will be fine. It isn't like Jon and Ellen were married for years. She was always just his girlfriend and many times kids are happy when a girlfriend is gone. They get full attention from their dad then.

marce said...

these kids aren't like our kids. They grew up with camera's
in their face and a mother who we all know is a bitch, she is still their mom ,and they will love her, and then they become teenagers and make her life a living hell...
They have a large extended family, and aside from the brother and wife years ago, not one family member has done anything to show the real kate.
After signing everything for years to get these kids off the show, didn't matter, nothing worked, and no one cared...It comes down to kate is their mother, if she wants to pimp them till they are 18, she legally can, and will. She is a 36 year old women with no talent , not a nice personally, and she will never be a star like she thinks.. She has made more money in one year then most people make in 10, yet she still is using the i same lines of supporting her family.. she had a show to support the kids, now there is no show, so she has to go on cruises to support the kids,because little Katie is too big now to actually go to work everyday in a filed she was trained in. And the ex cuss for that is , it is not enough to support her large family, or the funny one, who would watch the kids... i guess who ever is watching kids now. And that large family is bull, try having 3 kids in college at the same time.. or like the rest of the country, try getting by on your little paycheck..
Jon, if he wanted could go for full custody,, she is never home..He is a nice guy, but Kate still has the power, and for what ever reason, he allows it..
Steve still standing behind her in every photo, too pathetic.... if she is actually paying him, then i guess money out of the kids mouth, if they are in a relationship, maybe he should stop standing behind her in every photo..
Kate smiling wearing a night/club dress for lunch,, unlike a little girl playing dress up, this 36 year old women doesn't have enough sense to know how to dress in public..
Jackie Kennedy said , the most important job is raising children... Kate version of this is how to pimp out her children so she can stay in on the d list,,,..she will have 5 teenage girls,, she has no idea what she is in for.

linda said...

Sorry to hear the Jon & Ellen split but subsequent relationships are very tough.No doubt she felt squeezed after the kids personally and financially.The baggage one carries into that relationship has to be enormous knowing that probably 50% of all money earned will be provided to the kids, phone calls all hours and dealing with K for the next 11 - 15 yrs, unbearable!! No rest for the wicked.

Still Can't Stand Her said...

Excuse me, but on the Dr. Drew episodic portions we saw, did I not hear Kate say that the "little kids" call and airplane and "hair pane"....someone tell me that I heard right, okay?

These are not 3 yr olds or even 4 yr olds. These are 2nd grade kids, right?


Do you think the "little kids" are potty trained yet? Something is not right in Gosselin Land if there are speech problems and she is not getting them help; just lazy, lazy Kate.

What I saw of Kate, in her drastically short micro mini, and how she bats those false eyelashes at Dr. Drew is upsetting.

Did he really and truly believe her?

She has a practiced format she uses and hmmmmmm and haaaaaaaaas while she thinks of an answer.

Does she realize the Entertainment Tonight hired 3 different blonde interviewers and she is not one of them. She was given a shot, but she blew it. She blows a lot of opportunities. I do believe The End is very close now.

No way is Kate Gosselin going to be on OWN network, not going to happen, she would be a waste of time, money, etc., and Oprah has already lost enough money with this station, she is not going to drill a money pit for Katherine Gosselin.

I'm really confused about this "Katherine" Gosselin thing. On another thread, someone said that she resented Kate calling herself Katherine. I questioned this and asked when and where she did this. Now there is another reference to "Katherine Gosselin." How did this come about? Does anyone know?

Oh, Yes Indeed! said...

Still can't said:

The children are in first grade, and yes, they are potty trained or they wouldn't be in first grade - they would still be in day care...oh yes, they would!

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

So sad to hear about Jon and Ellen breaking up. It is hard for someone to be in a relationship where one party has kids and a spiteful ex-spouse in the picture. I respect Ellen for not looking for fame and attention throughout the past few years. She really is a "class act" and seemingly stable. I hope she remains so.

Would I like to know what happened as to the breakup? Yes!
Do I want to know? NO!
Best of luck to both Jon and Ellen wherever and whatever their futures may be.

heavennoseven said...

The Dr Drew interview must of beem old. The tups were started k-5 a year late.

Heffner Rd from Florida said...

Has anyone heard from Kates camp regarding Jon's breakup with Ellen?

Still down the road and waiting for her to move said...

Ellen helped John to adjust to being out of the camera range. I am always amazed that Katie still only can talk about John and whether he is or is not a good father while on TV.

No, there will never be a man in Kate's life that will move in and be coupled with Kate to raise those kids, she has no time for a romance as she is working so hard on her CAREER. Trying to find IT.

Also I heard Kate say, On Dr Drew's show that the kids say "hair pane" instead of "airplane" and I think the kids are almost 7 now. That may be a problem.

It is not cute any longer for the children to be called "the little kids" or that they cannot pronounce a word.

My first grader may not be able to spell every word in his vocabulary but he can pronounce words after hearing them and understanding what they man, then we do the learning to spell.

She is a lazy mother, no doubt about that. If they don't learn in school, she does not work with them at home UNLESS she wants to continue to "push them as babies when they are on their way to being close to 7 years of age"

Children under 4 are so cute when they are learning to pronounce words, but those children have been flying on airplanes since birth, so tell me they do not know how to say airplane???????

Is Dr. Drew the end of the line now? I sure hope so, unless she can get on the NJ housewives show that way they can kick her all the way back to PA. Kate will do anything to get on TV.

tiffches said...

I am sorry Jon and Ellen broke up because I think the kids geniunely cared for her. A mother figure that did not yell and hit was nice for a while. I am sure kate is dancing in the aisles and has probably told the kids in the harshest possible ways. I think Cara sees straight through her. I also think when Mady and Cara become teens, kate will not know what hit her. For the longest I thought Mady would be her problem, but now I think it will be Cara. She is quiet and keeps things inside. She will find the love an approval she has always craved from kate. I just hope she isn't hurt. She loved Jon and Kate is still trying to take him away.

Elvira said...

Kate used "hairpain" and then laughed and said that is what the tups used to call and then said that they say it correctly now.

Jessica said...

There really has been almost no "media attention" focused on Jon and Ellen in more than a year, so I'm not sure I buy that as a reason for their breakup. I'm sure that having Kate be your BF's ex is far more stressful than an occasional tabloid paparazzi.

I imagine it's not easy dealing with eight stepchildren getting older, including two girls on the cusp of teenage, and all accustomed to entitlement and being poisoned against Jon and her by their petty, vindictive shrew of a mother.

Also now with the show cancelled and Kate blowing through what's left of her fortune like it was water, Ellen realizes it's only a matter of time before Kate hauls Jon back into court for more child support, and given his lack of career marketability, their (Ellen's and Jon's) lifestyle, already quite modest, would be in for a hit. And Ellen's a young woman and maybe wants children of her own someday, and somehow I don't see Jon being on board with that.

So I'm sure the breakup was complicated. With this like everything else ever related to the Gosselins, it's the kids who stand to suffer the most.

____________________________

What she said was that when they were very small they called it a hair pane, the same way Alexis said Aldergator, but that was awhile ago and now they pronounce it correctly.

In fact, I remember on one of the last episodes, one of the kids (Collin?) said something about going on an airplane, and one of the other kids said the same thing, both of them pronouncing it correctly. The kids are seven now - will be eight in May, so of course they can pronounce words. If they couldn't, they'd be in a speech therapy program.

kate said on Dr. Drew that the tups called an airplane an "hairpane".

Now she says that they used to say hairpane and now they say "airplane".

I just don't believe her. Remember she lies as the day is long.

I have a bad habit of saying libear-e for library. My boys over the years as soon as I say it, they correct me! If they would hear me say it to them today, they would correct me.

Those kids needed speech therapy when they started talking. She did not want to spend the money or take the time to do it. Those kids are going to get the brunt of the teasing when they grow up because of their speech and pronouncing words.

Due to kate's tightwad money ways toward the children and her laziness, I feel so bad for those kids!

heavennoseven said...

I wonder who will help the tups with homework when she can`t afford help.


The cellphone thing is stupid. I doubt she lets the kids go to the movies with friends. I wonder if she even lets them call Jon



I bet Kate said somthing along this line to the kids.

Kate: Daddy and Ellen broke up. She lasted longer then I thought, Uh, Uh, Uuh, your dad should want to see you more. uh, he was a horrible boyfriend, uh, he is a loser. Uh, I am better then Ellen. Now, Uh, s sitter with be watching u. I need to go get some more tanning. Bye

Just A Local Parent said...

==================
She didn't have to spend any money or take any time to do it. They were in pre-school, and the school, through funded services, has free speech programs which would have been recommended and utilized, had they needed it.

"I wonder who will help the tups with homework when she can`t afford help. The cellphone thing is stupid. I doubt she lets the kids go to the movies with friends. I wonder if she even lets them call Jon"

-------
Jon helps the kids with homework, and she's said many times (on Twitter) that she's helping the kids with projects. I don't think that she pays anyone right now to do it, so I'm not sure why not being able to afford it would really have anything to do it. Has it been suggested somewhere that she is paying someone to help with homework?

Personally, I don't think a seven-year-old is old enough to go to movies with friends, unaccompanied by an adult, especially not those children, when security must be a major concern. Nobody knows what arrangements are made with their friends and their parents since there are no more episodes forcing the kids on camera. They have their privacy now, which is as it should be.

Just A Local Parent said...

Also now with the show cancelled and Kate blowing through what's left of her fortune like it was water, Ellen realizes it's only a matter of time before Kate hauls Jon back into court for more child support, and given his lack of career marketability.

################

Child support is based on his earnings, not on how fast she is blowing through money. She may have depleted the account, but as long as he is paying what was dictated by the courts, she's out of luck if she demands more simply because her bank account is hitting bottom.

Katherine said...

If the school recommended a speech therapist, she could refuse; then she would have promised to help at home. Nada......Liar

Go to www.huffingtonpost.com to see
Jennifer Anniston is a silver dress with moderate heels (not any 4,5 or 6") and her dress is almost to her knees.

That is called class.

Katie's alum foil rag should have had silver tights under it and lower heels, but hey, what you ain't got no class and no one to "do your styling" well the country girl comes out, huh Katie?

heavennoseven said...

I was talking about the twins going to movies.


I guess I thought since she always gone or on twttier, the nannys help with hwk.

Shoka's Understudy said...

I was just watching Extreme Couponer on TLC. There is a EX C only 6 hours away from kate. She is so nice and wow can she save money with coupons!

Why did CouponCabin hire a hateful, spiteful, narcissistic, lying woman who exploits her kids for money?

Why didn't they hire the nice Coupon Lady?

Sadder than anything else said...

OMG, my brother looked at Steve's web site. He said it is all former military service persons and former police persons from all around the US.

Any police force protects "celebrities" that come into a town, city, State, etc.,

Steve's web site is another word for
"Security Service with guns" and nothing else.
No bigga deal..

My brother is a person who would know about these things after a long career with the FBI and other
federal agencies has this info.

So anyone who was in the Service, police dept can start one of these companies.

Not as if Pres Clinton used him. The US Secret Svc protects Clinton and comes first where security is concerned, but New Zealand's police force would have been asked to help "aid" in various ways.But would never have been hired by Pres Clinton or former Pres Clinton. I notice that is the only known photo on the web site. Oh well.

Not impressed with Steve or her.

So my brother found it strange that Steve has a photo of himself and Clinton shaking hands.

Guess anyone who shakes hands with Clinton can put that photo on their web site.

Still, has does Kate believe she deserves that type of security?

Just Stringing Along said...

Katherine said,

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

Steve apparently met Clinton when he was involved in the police force that assisted the secret service who guarded Clinton. Steve met him, and had his photo taken with him, thinking it looks good on the webpage. Nowhere does it claim that he was in the secret service or that he provided direct protection to Clinton. In fact, it says, "close protection planning and management for U.S. President Clinton." Planning and management, not actually guarding Clinton.

His resume is padded, but when trying to get business, it is not uncommon to puff up a resume. The firm is based in Maryland, as is TLC, who obviously knew of the security firm and hired him. Kate needs security not only from obsessed fans, but to keep her from going off on the public. That's why he has been with her for so long.

Debbie H said...

Just stringing...Do you really think Kate has to worry about obsessed fans to the point of actually NEEDING a bodyguard???I would say her bigger worry about now should be having any fans left at all...lol..I mean, she doesn't have him with her when she runs to Target and the Dentist...And she manages to make it back OK...I think she likes to think she needs a bodyguard because it makes her feel important...
