The last I heard about Jon's mom was that she was married and did not want to be in the spotlight.

If Jon and his mom are living in the same house, I think this is great. When the kids visit, at least they will get to see their grandmother.

Those kids have missed out on so much normal things that happen in a family.

Hugs from your aunt and uncles, playing hide and seek with your cousins, going to the park and playing with your friends.

Those children would of been so much better off if these things could of happened to them.

kate will pay a heavy price for depriving them of love, hugs and joy from their family members and childhood friends.

The big blog post about her deciding on a staycation with her kids was the biggest crock of beans I have ever read. There is no way on this earth that kate writes her blogs. They are too articulate for her. Then she and Steve hop a plane to Vegas for Brad Garrett's event. She was paid to appear. kate is not going to go on her dime. Jon was paid also for his appearance. I am just wondering, WHO stayed with the kids?

heavennoseven said...

I am surprised Jon went to Event. I thought he wanted out of the lime-light. I have a question can Jon ask the courts to make her show what she uses it for.

linda said...

Looks like Kate is now in conflict with a Twitter fan who called her a
'tranny' by blocking their comments, per radaronline.
Kate - put the electronic stuff away and concentrate on your own situation, the kids, the house and most of all your finances.
Conflict with others is childish and serves no purpose. You're living in never neverland. Back to reality.

If Jon is writing a book, he needs an agent and needs to make appearances to market it if he wants it to sell. This event may have been a good place to setup some inital contacts. I wish he would hold off with the book. The kids are starting to blend into the woodwork, the way it should be. They don't need a spotlight on them (unless Kate is writing one and Jon wants his story out there first, then I would forgive him for putting out a book).

Did anyone see Tony (DWTS) on Anderson Cooper and hear his remarks about Kate? Now she is blogging responses to him about their time together. Poor man laughingly said he needed therapy after kate. I don't doubt it one bit.

Desperation much if that's "newsworthy" for Kate or Gather.

Debbie H said...

I suddenly had a revelation today while reading an article about Kate being engaged(she's not) and someone mentioned the bodyguard..You know, Kate claims to be great friends with Steve AND his wife, so doesn't it appear odd that his wife has never been invited to accompany them on any of these paid for by TLC exotic trips???Surely they would let her go if she paid her own airfare and met them there???Heck, she could even go on her dime to meet up with her hubby...I surely would..I just find it so strange, now that I have thought about it, that she didn't even go to New Zealand with Steve to see her inlaws and kids grandparents...That would have been a no brainer trip as far as I'm concerned...And just what wife would let their husband(even so called bodyguard) be the sole escort to a divorced woman at every single event and outing AND live in her house...This is fishy as heck, and she must think we are absolute dumb donkeys to believe that she is alone and not dating and has nobody and certainly that she's not involved with HIM...Am I alone in this(about his wife NEVER accompanying her husband and "good friend" Kate??

AuntyKimKIm said...

I was reading her twitter account and apparently Jon is going to court next week as he's months behind in child support. He's paying approx. $40.00 a day so that works out to about $1,200.00 a month. This is from a person named Maria.

ncgirl said...

I'm not sure the upcoming court appearances are about child support. Somebody else says it is about custody. People can lie on twitter so who knows what is true?

linda said...

Remember that song from about 30 yrs ago - what goes on behind closed doors-. Don't really understand what kind of an agreement Gina and Steve may have.
She may feel the longer she holds out, the better the outcome.
Perhaps Steve's agreement with Kate pays something or he is aware of her finances--using her. Personally, I would have run out of patience long ago, but again they have family. MHO is he would be jumping from the pan into the fire by staying with Kate based on her history. Like Dr Phil states past behavior dictates future behavior, which is- being her man servant!
Jon, being a nondegreed computer tech, will never enjoy high wages,
nor will she as a nurse. Although
career nurses may earn well as Director of Nursing - or other supervisory positions, her baggage will always be a hinderance to her earning power. Maybe she and Octomom can reach an agreement - now that would be news-worthy. 20/20 hindsight will soon dictate that K will have to downsize and her previous home will then, seem like a mansion. We've all adjusted
over the years.

HEAVENNOSEVEN said...

If he was not paying Kate would of told everyone. He said in an interview when the show was canned that he DOES PAY.

tiffches said...

I think it would be great if John got custody, but if he is going to court to lower child support, I hope he wins that also. Kate needs to change her lifestyle. A 4 or even 3 bedroom house would work, with a family room, kitchen and 2 bathrooms. The kids could go to public schools and live in an average neighborhood. She could sell her cars except for the van. She would be lucky to live like that since she does not really work anywhere. A lot more famous people than her want their kids in public schools. I also do not see her ever getting married again unless it is for convenience. I do not think she really likes men. She wants, IMO, a relationship where she is the male figure. She gets along with women a lot better than she does with men and seems more relaxed.

Katherine said...

Does anyone, beside me, think that Jon and Kate are looking for publicity? If he has a book to sell, well how better to gain publicity than fighting with Kate? Plus if she wants to be asked to come back to the interview shows as a guest explaining the turmoil in her life with Jon this will do it.

I mean the Octomom was on The Today Show to talk about Food stamps.

I do not believe anyone who works in the PA Courts ever talks about child support and celebrity, not ever. That is more than a violation but could be grounds for firing. There are not that many people handling the Gosselin case so those people would all have their jobs on the line.

It is publicity, Kate wants back on TV and how to get it? Jon wants to sell a book, turn it into a TV movie and he has info we have not heard unlike Kate who vomits her life.

sheryl said...

At one time it seemed that the funds from a settlement Jon received was put into escrow to be paid out as child support. No doubt that it long gone. Probably what irrates Kate is someone snuck
this upcoming court appearance
quietly by her.
Anyone who is in a second marriage can tell you when it becomes too
quiet, something else is brewing.

HEY KATE...NO ONE CARES THAT YOU ARE SHOPPING...

Kate Gosselin has been stocking up for the Easter holiday. The single mom-of-eight was spotted at Target shopping with twins Maddy and Cara, 10, for the family’s annual egg hunt.

PHOTOS: Kate Gosselin Shops for Easter With Maddy And Cara

The former reality star has her hands full. On Saturday she tweeted: “GM everyone! Busy day here! 800+ eggs&8 baskets to fill, cooking, baking and Easter outfits to lay out! I better get going…!! Yikes!”- !

The Kate Plus 8 star seems to be putting her tiff with former husband Jon Gosselin aside. As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Kate was stunned to find out from a Twitter follower that her ex plans to go to court next week for non-payment of child support.

heavennoseven said...

If Jon didn`t pay why would be the one when taking her to court? If he also wasn`t paying Kate would of whined about to some reporters. "Jon is behind on his support, I can`t feed my kids.Blah Blah Blah. It might be to see if she using it for the kids and not on herself.

lukebandit said...

800+ eggs??

Is she crazy?

When we were kids, we were lucky to get to color 2 doz.

The trip to Target with Mady and Cara and the 800+ eggs are all part of her quick scheme to impress the G8 because Jon is going to court next week about child support. I pray he can get it lowered so it will bring kate to her knees so she will have to kick Steve to the curb, downsize her living.

She loves to butter up the kids in an effort to use the kids against Jon.

Very sad.

linda said...

Perhaps Jon is seeking reduction of his required payments. With a
book coming out, the less burdened
he is the better. Later adjustments can then be made.
It appears that as Kate is more financially able, it would be great if Jon got custody and Kate had to pay him child support out of her kitty. She could then take steps to resolve her problems.

From Radar on Line.......

"The former reality star has her hands full. On Saturday she tweeted: “GM everyone! Busy day here! 800+ eggs&8 baskets to fill, cooking, baking and Easter outfits to lay out! I better get going…!! Yikes!”- !"
----------------------------------

I don't know if she is a liar or delusional. Over the years we have had many, many egg hunts for our large family and never have we used 800 eggs. What size baskets do they use as that works out to 100 eggs per child. I really think she has gotten an early start on the egg nog! Does she even think before she writes this nonsense?

Elvira said...

It was probably eight dozen. Multiplying by 100 instead of twelve is normal Kate math.

Momof4 said...

I think she is referring to filling plastic eggs with treats for the kids to find. She has hidden them in the yard before. HOW CAN SHE AFFORD THAT? When my 4 kids were little I had a hard time affording enough candy to fill 4 baskets. She keeps complaining that she is broke!

heavennoseven said...

I don`t celebrate Easter. But, aren`t the twins too old for this egg hunts. Or are they filling all the eggs when Mommy twitters.

"Maddy came down and saw how hard I was working, she offered to help. Bless her heart"

The Bunny Trail said...

heavennoseven said...

If Jon didn`t pay why would be the one when taking her to court?

+++++

The court date is not about child support payments, but about a custody issue.

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

800 eggs for 8 children??
k8 is so full of hot air that her big feet never touch the ground. I wonder if she is polishing those "gold platters" to hold all the goodies. She is so thick minded that she doesn't realize how stupid she proves herself to be every time she opens her mouth.

P.S. Happy Easter to the mods and all GWOPers.

tiffches said...

I like Jon a lot better than I do Kate and I think he is a much more caring parent. He does not have the means or desire to buy the kids. I hope he is successful with his book. But mostly I hope it is the complete honest truth. One days the kids will read it so even for money, I do not want him to put Kate down for sales. However if he is completely honest and never judges her when he writes about her the kids will know it is true. No embellishments needed. We have seen and heard what she is.

Katherine said...

Maybe, just maybe (I'm trying to be kind for Easter) Kate needs 800 filled eggs because she is inviting 100 under privileged children from Reading to run around collecting eggs and having one swell time on the Mansion grounds?

Slap myself silly, how crazy and how "not good for your kids" to give them too much of anything because when the money runs out, how in this world is she going to provide 800 filled plastic eggs in their apartment, after the bank forcloses on that house?

See I tried to be nice but she makes you enraged when you know that where she lives and where she gets her mani pedi tanning is not far from some really sad families trying to
"just get by" and Kate would do nothing for anyone, never, ever.

Just once she should march herself to the local Food Pantry and throw in some of those cans of food she stores in the basement along with a case or two of juicie juice she got for free.

So she spends one day cooking, baking, filling those plastic eggs of 800 and she still has to lay out the Easter outfits?

Like, do the kids even get to leave the Farm?

sheryl said...

Did Steve go home for the holiday?

WonderButton said...

Nothing says you've lost complete sight of the true meaning of the holiest day of the Christian calendar like 800 plastic eggs. Quite the falling away for a preacher's daughter. Guess they didn't go to church. No pics, like for this past Christmas.

Those poor kids.

heavennoseven said...

The kids can lay out there own outfits? Seesh.

I bet if really did have over 800. She paid extra for them to come filled.

I wonder what she put in the eggs. Did she gave the same to the boys as the girls

What is Jon`s book about?

Alaskan mama said...

I so agree about inviting underprivileged children for an egg hunt. Knowing now it would only be for PR, it would have nice to see her actually give back. It wouldn't redeem her in my eyes but I am surprised her PR machine hasn't suggested it.

howso said...

The egg comment could mean a lot of things, like 8 bags of mini chocolates that have 100 pieces each.

Betty said...

http://www.infdaily.com/2012/04/exclusive-pics-kate-gosselins-kids-enjoy-an-easter-egg-hunt.html

Egg hunt was staged for the paps.

Techymum said...

Seeing the INF pictures is like looking at Dionne Quintuplet pictures all over again.

I believe from the bottom of my heart that the paps are alerted by someone "inside". PR perhaps?

How sad.

Just a mother said...

Whoever took the photos was not a pap and there again we have photos sold by the family.

She is working hard to get back on TV.

Her children are beautiful and photographic as they age. She should protect them from the cameras.

What an idiot she is.

Reading news said...

"http://www.infdaily.com/2012/04/exclusive-pics-kate-gosselins-kids-enjoy-an-easter-egg-hunt.html"

There is something very strange about the pictures in the above link for INF. They were obviously taken on two different days as the kids are wearing different clothing and in some pictures they are using plastic bags and in some plastic baskets. I think the kids are putting the eggs around in one picture and then gathering them in other pictures. Very peculiar and definitely staged. Also in the pics of the boys wearing the khaki pants and navy vests the clothes look like they are about two sizes too big. While visiting the tanning salon and nail place in West Reading she should have stopped at a tailor and had the boys' pants hemmed. I feel so sorry for these kids

WonderButton said...

Checked out the pics....looks like Chris is back on the payroll. Target likely kicked in some comp eggs in exchange for the publicity.

heavennoseven said...

I think it might be fake. He has been said to have been paying, even lose a job. I think its come out of other funds like Social Security. He is not a deadbeat if can`t pay a lot he is no longer on TV. He prob makes in one year as much as did for one show, if that.

The Bunny Trail said...

Not necessarily. In the shots where the boys are wearing the pants and vests, they are not holding any bags or baskets. These could have been taken right after church before the hunt began. In the shots where they are wearing shorts, they have buckets. Boys have buckets. Girls have bags. The boys most likely changed their clothing after church and after those initial photos were taken with them wearing the pants and vests. Same day. Girls have bags, boys have buckets.

Obviously, we are not looking at the same pictures. There are several where the boys are dressed in shorts and have bags in their hands. Also, it was very cool here on Easter morning so surprised that the girls are in those sundresses abd flipflops. I still think the entire thing was staged on different days and in the first pictures with the bags the kids are actually putting the eggs around the property - of course, not 800 of them.

Heffner Road fm Florida said...

how do you know they went to church?

Katherine said...

Yep I believe that using those Target plastic bags and the grocery carts filled ALWAYS with Target plastic bags is exactly what gets her free clothing for the kids and all those free pkgs of paper towels etc. Is that why everytime she goes to Target, there are photos? Then those photos appear on the internet and Target gets a lot of publicity?

She know how to beg, borrow and steal to get free anything.

When do those children get privacy? She has made them so much more than the Dionne children. She makes them feel very strange I'm sure when they have to go to school and listen to friends talk about them.

Time will certainly tell what those kids will be like but judging from that controlling mother? I would think they will grow up without values.

Why no photos of entering a church or leaving a church?

If the paps were on her property, they would follow her to church with that mega van. So I think the photos were staged by her and sold by her to the internet.

Betty said...

Kate is old history at this point. No one is hanging out waiting to catch a shot of her any more. The only way the photos were made and sold was if Kate instigated it. She needs to face reality and quit pretending.

The Bunny Trail said...

Is that why everytime she goes to Target, there are photos?
========

Kate goes to Target quite often. We do not see photos of her every time she goes to Target. We see photos of her there when she calls the pap. He's not there for all her outings.


"If the paps were on her property, they would follow her to church with that mega van"
=====

If Kate called her resident pap and told him what time to be there for the egg hunt shoot, that's when he would show up. I doubt he would follow them to church, take a photo, and wait a few hours until the egg hunt. He wouldn't need photos of them going into church and at the egg hunt. That's overkill.

The Bunny Trail said...

Obviously, we are not looking at the same pictures.

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

Are you talking about the INF photos? The girls are in the same dresses in the photos. The boys are in pants and vests in some of the photos WITHOUT buckets. It appears that these were taken right after church -- that's why they are dressed up. In the photos where they are wearing shorts, they have buckets. These photos were most likely taken AFTER THEY CHANGED CLOTHING from the previous photos. In other words, they were not looking for eggs in the photos where they were wearing pants and vests, but changed photos for the egg hunt, which is why they have buckets. They would have been much more comfortable hunting eggs wearing casual attire.

Because the girls are wearing the same dresses in the photos, and it only the boys who changed clothing, these photos likely were taken on the same day. It was sunny and mild in the afternoon. I never would have let my kids outside in sun dresses, but Kate does. These kids have been photographed in shorts and flip flops on days when they clearly needed jackets and jeans.

If you do all of the photos below the story line about the egg hunt there are probably four pictures where the boys have plastic bags. I think they are putting the bags on the lawn - in the pics with the plastic baskets they are gathering the eggs. In other words,STAGED.

I am guessing Kate had someone take the pic...like the paparazzi would be hanging in Reading to get a pic of a has-been reality wanna-be star!

Just a Mom said...

I checked out some of Kate's blogging and so often she mentions certain Stores repeatedly. Like that is why she shops at Target?

Those Easter pics on her website? Looks like a lot of Product Placement with quite a few items.

Still selling those kids to the world. So sad.

Will Steve be going on the Military Date along with Kate and her blind date? Who does she think she is Mila or Justin? Anything for publicity, anything.

SophiaRose said...

Kate has "accepted" a date from someone on twitter.

===

She told him to e-mail her. She didn't accept a date, nor definitely tell him she would go out with him. Her "how could I say no" could mean anything. Kate plays word games. He'd have to be vetted first. She's not going to go out with a total internet stranger, and of course, Steve would have to go along.

SophiaRose said...

Heffner Road fm Florida said...

He was tweeting quite a few women telling them they were the most gorgeous women on the planet. After Kate tweeted him back, he deleted the other tweets.

Katherine said...

So Kate was shocked the public found out Jon was going to court? What a liar she is. She is so dumb, everything that goes throught the courts as far as lack of child support is on a list. A federal law. Jon knows what Kate spends on everything, no doubt plus she makes a salary? with coupon cabin? Then she gets all the free stuff (which has to add up to be included in her salary) so why should Jon keep giving her a sizeable portion of his average wages when it isn't even distribution. Remember both parents are responsible for the welfare of the children. If she is getting more than she needs, then he has every right to fight the child support. The courts distribute the care of the children between both parents.

What a liar she is and why? So she can fly her bodyguard first class to Vegas with Jon's money?

Again, anything for publicity. I just hope Jon writes a book about Reality TV and how she destroyed her family in order to have fame and fortune.

Her coupon cabin site is stupid when you read the other bloggers. No one needs to know how to keep clothes that one child has outgrown for another, no one. Everyone of us have been doing it from the infant stage on. Unless Kate sells more than we know. I wouldn't be surprised if she hasn't kept the original price tags of items given to her for the consignment shop also. Making it look as though the clothes were bought by her at the retail rate.

Also one last thing, the vests the boys wore on Easter? Where they men's vest put on those little boys because boys don't matter? She is cruel.

Debbie H said...

Can someone please tell me how Kate would NOT know Jon is behind on child support payments...Does she have so much money that she doesn't miss or need the $3500 or is she just so stupid she isn't aware of what's going on around her???I don't get it...I would know these things if I had 8 kids to raise ALONE as she says...I just don't get it and would appreciate any help here to understand...Thanks!

He's not behind. The ROL story was false. Jon tweeted that the amount posted on ROL is the recurring amount, the amount he pays each month, the balance. He said he has never been behind on support payments.

Kate has no friends so those guys taking pictures are her Easter guests.

You mean the bestest friends are gone? She had one who gave birth when Kate gave birth to the twins.

But I guess Kate can't handle but one friend at a time.

She is pushing the runner's magazine now on her coupon site, so I guess she will be pushing new running shoes and all the kids will get shoes that finally fit.

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

Only if she can make money off it herself, like having the kids make a commercial featuring the running shoes.

I'm surprised she hasn't had them making commercials about other things. She'd probably insist that she star in the commercial, while the kids stand around in the background and try to look like they cared.

Danny Boy said...

the wicked witch is on twitter hinting that she has a show coming in the near future...who in there right mind would........

Heffner Road said...

HERE IS INFO ON HER NEW SHOW...

Not everyone is thrilled about Kate Gosselin’s upcoming show, Twist of Kate, an upcoming TLC reality series that will feature the mom of eight using "letters from women inspired by her story as the basis for profiles of women facing their own challenges.”

Among iVillage readers, the announcement has stirred up a heated debate about whether Gosselin, 35, who’s still doing her fancy footwork on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, should even be taking on a new show. "How much money does this woman need?” writes plebmom. “I mean, really, even if she was plowing through $100,000 a year (which is a very comfortable income even with 8 kids) -- this year she is going to be making around a half a million dollars easy... again, how much money do you need?"

Another reader feels that Gosselin shouldn’t be focusing her energy on other people when she’s got eight children at home who need her attention. "Tell me this...how will she go ‘help’ others and walk in their shoes when she should be doing all she can for her own kids," says memeu2. It begs the question whether viewers will tune in for a sans kids Kate.

Gosselin is in the midst of her own heated battle with husband Jon, who has sued her for primary physical custody of their children after calling Kate an “absentee mom.” Kate’s response to her ex’s allegations? "I am and always will be a mother first, but as a single working mom I will do everything necessary to provide for my kids despite the opinions of others." In an iVillage Flash Poll, 74 percent of readers feel that Kate should be the primary caretaker of her children. “I would not let him watch my dog!!!” exclaimed one.

What do you think -- is Kate Gosselin just trying to provide for her kids with her new show?

I would love Jon to get custody. Imagine the children would no longer be commodoties for sale. If Kate would do anything for them, she would move to a smaller house, sell all cars but one, work full time, put the children in a regular public school, and quit talking abut Jon. In other words, be normal. Cara has worried me for a long time. She seems to be going deeper and deeper into a depression. All the kids worry me. Maddi tries too hard to please Kate. Joel and AAden do also. I think Collin and Alexsis gave up a long time ago and do not seem close to Kate at all but are very dependent on Cara especially. When these children have problems, kate will blame Jon. Why does she not understand they just want to please and to be loved

Shoka's Understudy said...

kate twittered that they opened the last box of NutriGran cereal that they had brought back from NZ. I checked to see and I don't think Kellogg's makes it here. I googled NutriGrain NZ and found it. I read the ad with it and found it very entertaining and like kate's philosophy.

I sent her an email....asking the question...see if I get a reply

Shoka's Understudy said...

What I meant about the cereal, Kellogg's does make Nutrigrain products and makes a certain kind of Nutrigrain cereal but doesn't sell it here. Someone maybe able to find it. I also twitted to kate and told her to ask Steve's mother to send her a big crate of the cereal that they had ran out. I told her that would be another free grift. I also asked her if she kept the family picture of her, the 8 and Steve. lol

He's not behind. The ROL story was false. Jon tweeted that the amount posted on ROL is the recurring amount, the amount he pays each month, the balance. He said he has never been behind on support payments.

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

I just heard about this now. If if it were true, I won't consider Jon a dead beat dad for being late on one payment. These articles are really going over board. A dead beat dad is someone who repeatably does not pay. It's not someone who is late on a single payment; which could easily be a time issue (pay day versus support due date). Not that anyone should be late with a payment...it just doesn't consitute being called a dead beat.

Me thinks, when Kate thought she would stay on TV, that a lot of companies sent her cases of items, hoping for Product placement on the TV show. Her basement is probably full of all kinds of food items, clothing, shoes, sundry items that we purchase at drug stores, i.e.: hair spray, all the make up that she wears, etc.

Only problem? The clothes are so big that the kids have to grow into them.

I think that is an area we always forget about, the products that were sent to her when she had her shows. TLC couldn't tell her what to place on her table or to serve her kids,so she had a lot of say on that. Imagine the oodles of money saved all these years on items like that darn cereal, where she is now begging again for more on twitter.

This woman knows no boundaries on begging.

Yet she claims to find coupons for military families?

Our church has a big box for coupons for the military families. It is loaded by the end of each month and shipped to the people who make sure they arrive in the proper hands, the military families.

Katherine said...

PS Add to that list: appliances (small and larger), furniture pieces, linens, paint for the walls, throw rugs for her hard wood floors.

OMG, I could go on and on. Maybe that is what Jon knows all about.

All I remember is that basement was like walking into a warehouse full of bins, the best metal shelving and a ladder was necessary to get to the bins.

I guess our Kate is turning into a hoarder.

My understanding is she got the cereal on her trip to Australia, and they don't sell it in the US.

I would think if she looked she could buy something similar.

Just read about the "new" cookbook she's shopping...Is there really any publisher out there that will touch anything from here with a 10 foot pole???I mean, I'd be first in line to take this on, considering her other books were such awful sellers...I suppose she could publish a hundred copies of it herself and sell them to the twitter sheeple...

&&&&&&&&&

She's claiming a new one is in the works, but is very evasive about it. I don't think that there is a new cookbook. It's just one of her fantasies.

Heffner Road said...

She can't cook a decent meal...if she has a new book, am sure most if not all recipies are copied from other people.

Katherine said...

Bet she will print that book herself and take it on the cruise to sell with her autograph. Wanna bet?

Alysa said...

Okay I just wanted to point something out.. I am not a "kate lover" or anything, but to everyone talking about how awesome of a dad Jon is, and how much kate sucks, did anyone watch season 5? The kids were NEVER happy with Jon, and no matter how annoying Kate could be on the show, they always acted genuinely happier with Kate... Just food for thought.

Hannah said...

It could all be in the editing with Jon.They could put his bad moments just like they did with Kate at the end. The only thing I remember is Mady getting upset of some lemonade stand posters.

WonderButton said...

The majority of episodes, as they originally aired, showed many points of concern for this family. Some posters have reported how the episodes were re-edited slightly in reruns to cast certain situations in a less negative light.

When reviewing the episodes, one should keep in mind that editing definitely does skew the "reality" presented on any reality show. Additionally, the lens with which we view human interactions becomes more focused - and perceptive of nuance - with age and life experience.

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

It was in that season when Alexis, at the birthday party, went to Jon and said, "Daddy, I don't want you to leave anymore." It was heartbreaking.

Can one ever forget the video of Jon dropping the kids off at Kate's gate after his custodial visits and hearing them scream that they didn't want him to leave and they didn't want to go home?

Kate has had a lot of complaints to coupon cabin on her comments about Tony of DWTS & Anderson Cooper.

This was on www.celebritypregnancy.com

Headlines were: Kate Could Lose Another Job



Kate’s Coupon Cabin readers didn’t like it. The majority reprimanded Kate for having her own agenda. “Ok…if MY job was to post blogs that helped people save money and I showed MY boss this self-serving pile of crap, I’d be re-writing my post and/or finding a new job,” wrote MamaD. Added another named BargainMom01, “Coupon Cabin. I’m ashamed for you. Really ashamed. This could have been so much better, especially in this climate where so many people are struggling. Why bother giving Kate a forum to spew her attitude?”

Isn't this "boards on boards?" I thought that was one of the posting rules. No boards on boards. Should comments from posters on other sites be brought here? I'm confused. If this isn't boards on boards, then what is it?

Mary Ann said...

The Easter pictures are out and there is Katie, front and center. Normal people might have a few pictures of JUST the kids..not Kate. She managed to dress like a hooker even on Easter Sunday.

Silver Ribbons said...

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

Except for that long stringy fried hair, I thought she looked nice. Her girls weren't hanging out in front and sides, the purple top was very Easter-ish, the white skirt was short, but it wasn't riding up to her waist, and I was quite surprised that she didn't look like a hooker -- for once!

Katherine said...

OMG, we just found out (our lunch hours are amazing) where Katie got the idea to use dryer sheets for cleaning dirty pots and pans.Guess where? The issue of Women's Day Magaine. Yep, she did steal it and a lot more. It wasn't even hard to find out. One of the women here at work has the copy.

Oh Katie, we are lying and lying and lying.

Hope CC has researched Katie's "finds" cause I think there is a name for stealing from someone else' research and not given them credit.

Low life Katie. Once again not only lying but stealing and TAKING CREDIT for something that is printed in the magazine. You can even find it on the computer with the real women who had the Tips talking about their discoveries of certain ideas using products.

Is she really as stupid as she is proving to be? You give the person who had the idea, printed and published, the credit, you don't give yourself credit.

Co workers on lunch hour said...

Oh yes, consensus is that Kate could have worn white slacks instead of the short skirt and she blocks one of the twins, maybe Mady by making herself front and center. She could have worn the white slacks, sat on that plastic white chair she reigned on and had the kids surround her.

Yes, we think white slacks would have been very nice. I guess if Kim Kardashian at age 30 can wear a mini skirt to Easter church services than Kate can wear a mini skirt at age 37?

BTW, if your hair grows 3 inches at the most in a year, how did Kate's hair grow to below her shoulders in one or two years? Didn't she have those extensions? Your hair breaks when those things come out. Ask someone who had that done to them. Plus all the dying of her hair, stripping is what it is.

Unfortunately, she would look good as a natural brunette and not that dyed out blondish/whiteish hair she has.

Mady is beautiful, just beautiful. All of the children are, but as Mady grows older, she is a beautiful young girl. Watch out Mady, Mom will be putting you in a lot of auditions shortly, if she hasn't already.

Kate most likely has got extensions in her hair, which explains the many different shades of "blonde" she has in there. I'm not complimenting her hair by any means, I think there are much better styles and color she should try...However, my hair grows quickly....try an inch per month, otherwise I would not have to go religiously to get my roots done on a monthly basis:) And I agree with you that the damage done from extensions and bleaching is irreversible! She would do better for her hair in the long term by keeping it darker, so that it stays thicker, healthier, and shinier. But we are talking about a person with NO sense of personal style or class. She's just so awkward.

Debbie H said...

In regards to the hair questions here...I just saw the Easter pictures...Kate for sure had a wig on in the pictures...I guess now that TLC is not footing the big hair bill, she opted for a wig when she wants to get the "look"...Now you can add fake hair to the list of everything else about her that's fake...LOL

That's her hair. I've seen her out and about and that's the way that it looks. If you enlarge the one photo you can see the dark front scalp roots and the uneven part. Nobody would wear a wig that looked like fried blond hair.

Katherine said...

Mamasan,

Good info, thanks, we are putting a big cardboard box in the lunch room at work. Most of the gals are asking everyone they know to put cardboard boxes at their jobs, so we can collect those coupons.

So important that the military families get some help.

Hey Katie, all those clothes you sell? How about donating them to the military families on bases? We have a lot of them in NJ, DE, PA and you get something for it, you get to write it as a charity donation on your income tax. You would probably get more credit than the money you get trying to sell things on consignment.

Greed is a sin, isn't it? It's like Gluttony, isn't it? Too much, not necessary to have so much, to live like that "give me, give me, give me" must be horrible.

Bet she goes into the basement warehouse and counts those big bins of "things" she owns.

I want to know when she has a Yard Sale before her house is foreclosed on.

Her manager, Steve the bodyguard, isn't getting her any jobs, is he? I don't think so. Time is running out on paying all of those mortgages is what we figure.

How can you tell the difference between Kate's real hair and a wig?

Hannah said...

I wonder if the woman`s home journal will take legal action.

She gets the clothes for free and sells them for a profit. Why not give it to people who need it. Oh Right, no one is paying you and taping you too.

Is that a lead-in for a punch-line...and there's an answer to the joke? :)

"I want to know when she has a Yard Sale before her house is foreclosed on."

Do you want to go and bid on the new treadmill and Keurig? I wouldn't want anything that she's owned, not even PB.

"Her manager, Steve the bodyguard, isn't getting her any jobs, is he? I don't think so. Time is running out on paying all of those mortgages is what we figure."

----

I don't think that's his job. He "manages" her on the road. He's not her agent. Doesn't she only have one mortgage?

Debbie H said...

About the wig...I just said it looked like a wig because of the way it "sits" on top of her head...I am mostly going by the picture of them sitting on the ground...Take a close look at it and see if you notice how at the top of her forehead, there's no hairline as with natural hair..I could be wrong, but that's how it looks to me...And I do believe Kate would wear a wig that looks like straw...that's how she likes to wear her hair naturally...:)

I belong to Cruse Critic I just went and look at the Allure roll call and most of the people there are upset she is on the shssisp. Some sayaing they are goinig to change plans because of her

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

Good grief. That makes no sense. The ship holds over 6,000 passengers and 2,000 crew members. What would be your chances of running into her on a ship that size? Why would you change plans and forfeit money? This isn't a tiny boat.

Debbie said, "About the wig...I just said it looked like a wig."

I misunderstood because what you wrote in your post was, "Kate for sure had a wig on in the pictures." That sounded to me like you were fairly certain. Sorry.

Amy 2 said...

Oh I just was wondering Kate, have you received your invite to the Kentucky Derby this year?

I mean it is in a week or 2, isn't it?

No? Well, guess your first class invites and travel along with clothes, hats, etc., are over? Unless I am wrong.

Why weren't you are the Press Club Dinner in DC last night? Lindsey & Kim were there. Think you need to do that porno film with Steve, say someone stole it and you will be famous again, right?

On what basis, I doubt they have it patented. There are tips like this all over the web and in mags, etc. Most are repeated multiple places. i did a quick search and there are pages of sites talking about cleaning ovens with dryer sheets. It would be impossible for WHJ to say she took it from them.
