Someone Else Goofed er Hired Kate

She managed to find another "blogging" gig.  I'm not sure if it was from one of her few remaining followers or someone who didn't know any better.

i suppose we would have to know who hired her and what is the particular blog's platform to really evaluate this action, but, on the surface anyway,and particularly considering today's economy and all the qualified people who are currently out-of-work, it certainly seems like a stupid hire.

Under The Boardwalk said...

She was hired to blog by The Stir at CafeMom. Kate's first blog was published a few days ago. Apparently they didn't learn from the CC fiasco.

Me me me, I I I, my life is so hard, it's all about me, me me me, I I I. I know a couple of the writers at CafeMom and I would like to go on record as saying that it is an insult to them to have Hate Gosselin given a spot in their ranks.

2013: The Year of the Teenager and More! (PHOTO)

Exciting things happening in our house in 2013!

This year has already kept me way too busy! It may seem impossible to be somewhat overwhelmed so early on, but I admit it, I am. Fortunately, I like it that way. My saying is "to be busy is always better than to be bored." And I'm anything but bored so far in 2013!

As a general rule, I don't bother with New Year's resolutions. Who has the time? And to me, they feel like yet another thing on my never-ending "to-do list." Who needs that??? I do always face each new year with a fresh smile and renewed determination though ...

All too quickly that feeling is eclipsed by the sudden onset of dread ...

Since my birthday falls early in the year, my first thought is ALWAYS, "Oh no, this year I turn [insert my new age], am I still considered young?" Panic will definitely ensue this year when I turn 38 in March. That's just way too close to the big 4-0!

I'm crossing my fingers that my kids will continue to keep me young. That's what they say about kids anyway. But somehow I feel like mine are making me old! The speed at which I must move to keep our world turning makes me feel like I'm 80 years old by the end of the day! Having eight kids is sort of like having an eight-car freight train speeding past me daily. I gotta keep up and most days -- it's all I can do!

So this year I turn 38. Okay, gotta accept it, right? What else can I do? Once I accept it, I can move on and refocus on the new year with thoughts of everything that I hope to make happen this year in all categories of life -- home, family, work, and fun!

This year is going to be full of adventures for me and my eight. For starters, I'm blogging here at The Stir every week! I was asked to join the many talented writers here and I feel honored that my stressful, funny, crazy, and sometimes unbelievable life experiences as a single mom of eight will be documented right here!

Beyond this blogging opportunity, I have some other exciting projects in the works that I can't quite discuss as of yet. I am not teasing you on purpose, I'll divulge just as soon as I can!


And putting my career work aside, the new year has been whipping my butt on the home front: following a busy Christmas, a week-long family trip, and then a three-week-long home maintenance marathon led by a close family friend who is a jack of all trades and master of ALL (in which I wielded a hammer and other such tools -- learning details of plumbing, building, and repairing from a master), I am still trying to get organized and settled into 2013!

Oh, and did I forget to mention that 2013 has been officially titled "The Year of the Teenager(s)" for me! Yes, I have two girls turning 13 this year. Help! This is going to be one heck of a ride ...

More details to come on all of the above topics ... For today, I just wanted to say hello and that I'm really happy to be here!

Has 2013 overwhelmed you already too?



Townie said...

just the thought of this witch forcing her way back on tv makes me vomit

Debbie H said...

Townie...Nobody will have her back on TV...Not more than on one nothing show at best...Interest in her is really OVER..You have a whole new set of sweet delightful baby sextuplets to watch(and they even have a mom AND dad to boot:)...There's Honey Boo Boo for the more brave among us..lol...Kate is really really old news to everyone at this point...Just a few like us that are always happy to see karma at it's best keep up with her...I don't even remember to check her on google so often anymore so I KNOW it's over..lol..She will blow this opportunity just as she has blown every other opportunity that has come her way...and this will be the absolute LAST of her when she pisses these people off...I mean, the kids are OLD now...and when nobody cares what they are doing, they sure as heck don't care what Kate's doing...

Fair Use? said...

.There's Honey Boo Boo for the more brave among us..lol...Kate is really really old news to everyone at this point..

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

It's interesting that if she's old news, which I think she is, that she got this job that paid $1,000 per day to another reality show mom, according to Naughty But Nice Rob. I wouldn't mind being old news if I were pulling in that kind of money for writing a few paragraphs.

Bev1212 said...

She ALWAYS has some exciting projects in the works that she can't talk about just yet and that is because they NEVER materialize!

I wonder how much they pay her to blog.

sglily said...

"Interest in her is really OVER"

Yes. It really is, and she knows it, but is fighting tooth & nail to hold on. Even interest in her "controversy" and the "what is she up to now" has almost completely dwindled to nothing.

Yes, there is a whole new batch of reality TV, and it has surpassed Kate above & beyond, and now she isn't able to use the kids anymore either. People were always saying, "oh, those kids, they're just so cute", etc. IMO, that was just played up to the max. I mean, quite frankly, I never thought they were any cuter or more special than any other kids. Right now, the Mcghees are just as cute and the other babies & kids that have been on other shows have all had their cute, funny moments as well.

Kate did this to herself. We all actually might continue to hold a bit of interest in the Gosselins if it weren't for Kate. Moms really identified themselves with her back in the day of yoga pants, t-shirts and flip-flops; clipping coupons & cleaning up messes; tackling a day in the life, everyday, on her own. When Kate had her metamorphosis into fashionista & diva extraordinaire, complete with professional hair, make-up, tans & jewelry, all those moms turned, gave the evil eye, and never looked back. Who wants to watch "your everyday mom" strutting around in heels & a miniskirt at the zoo?, who no longer has to fend for herself, but rather delegates to nannies and "helpers", and uses every opportunity to show off her 1.1 million-dollar home, brand new top of the line cabinets & appliances, $10,000 playhouses and buying her kids backpacks (for their private school) at L.L. Bean (complete w/ monogramming, no less) I don't care how cute the kids are-Reality?...I think not.

hannah said...

She gets paid to talk about herself. I will no longer being reading any blog that hires this girl. I wish they would gave to someone who needs it.

PA Woman said...

Personally, I don't have a problem with Kate writing a blog. It's in the best interest of the kids for her to have a job, both to support them, and frankly to keep her happy and out of the young ones hair. And, the beauty of a blog is, we all have a choice, to read it, or not to read it. Since I never read any "celebraties" blog, I'm not going to start with Kates...but it's up to her now to make a success of it or fall flat on her face.

HEFFNER ROAD FROM FLOIDA said...

Read her second blog...too long to post here....

She gets paid for this....????how much do you think?

Debbie H said...

So she was gone a week during Christmas? Wow...somebody somewhere is still giving her freebies...I mean, Lord knows the woman wouldn't pay for her own ticket to a movie probably...Of course, there is the more likely possibility that SHE and STEVE went away together...She wouldn't mind funding trips without the kids along....

hannah said...

She left for Christmas and the kids wanted to be with her so bad. Lie Much?

Kelly Jo said...

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

It was a family trip. The kids went with her.

Heffner Road fm Florida said...

check out her web site...under "just my 8 cents worth"

her latest blog.....

can't imagine she is getting paid for this crap

Heffner Road from Florida said...

where did they go on the family Christmas Trip?

jennine s said...

after the holiday, they went to visit friends and family. There was no mention of them visiting their father.

dotsicle said...

In Heffner Road's posting of Kate's first comments on The Stir, there were 51 uses of Me, My, Mine, and I. At least we can be fairly sure it's Kate doing the writing and not an intern.

Betty said...

Wouldn't that be $1,000 per post not per day? Perhaps the person who initially wrote that misspoke. They are likely not paying Kate to merely exist. That person may have posted daily.

hannah said...

I wonder if she used the trip as a prize to to get them to be with her for the holidays. I didn`t Kate had any family left that still would see her.

jennine s said...

What Kate says and what she does is two different things. I think Kate is very manipulative.

Sharla said...

More malarkey from Kate:

http://thestir.cafemom.com/big_kid/150775/gargantuan_gosselin_grocery_grab_photo

sglily said...

Wow, that latest blog post is indeed malarkey. A "normal" breakfast? There's no way they eat eggs & bacon every day or that often that it would be a "normal" breakfast, and if they do, that's horribly unhealthy. What happened to the chickens? Maybe now they've got egg overload and can't use them fast enough. Those kids must have the hugest, heaviest lunch boxes in the class-sorry, but all that stuff adds up to a massive lunch for an 8, or even 12 year old. Hummus? Bet the little kids sneak that in the trash and beg a classmate to share their twinkie. And homebaked cookies? Guess Kate fits that task in right after her 3-hr. workout routine, haircut and mani/pedi. Ok, 3-4 rolls of toilet paper a day? Aren't the kids in school over half the day? It's not the poor kids. Hmmm...I won't go there. Guess all the talk of saving money, budgets and price decreases helps her keep her hair and tan appts., as well as a new pair of heels to wear for her next shopping trip, where she'll fill an entire "red" cart full of lotion and toothpaste, hope to get photographed, and in return get gift cards (Hello, the red store with the bullseye, are you there?) Beyond pathetic.

Lori M. said...

In my opinion, CafeMom does not have high standards for guest bloggers. They hired Octomom to write a column on parenting styles and discipline! What a joke.

Heffner Road fm Florida said...

Just read the blog...what a bunch of crap

Mom of 4 said...

She is nuts! I have 4 children and there is no way I used half of what she says she uses for 8. Even with 3 teenage boys I didn't pack lunches the size she claims she is making for her children.

I'm Ready, Mr. Demille said...

Ah gee, as to the "food blog", where the heck is the milk for the growing kids? Organic dairy farms not giving "freebies"? Juicy Juice seems to be still on the #1 donor list followed by the paper towel company and the supplier of TP.

Sidney said...

I did notice she now says she deletes her kids juice - 50% juice, 50% water.

Is that because of the criticism she received when her babies were living on free Juicy Juice? Sure beats paying for milk, eh, Kate?

kathie617 said...

Oh poor Katie Irene...now she is a victim of bullying...anything for a little press. Actually Kate, aren't you a bully yourself?

shilohpeace said...

the thing about kate gosselin is.. if she showed any sign of learning anything.. of how to be a more decent kind human being and not a sociopath, she would have some potential in the tv industry. I would watch a show with her trying to find a love purely because i would be interested in the fools who would sign up to be with her.. she is irritating tv but she is addictive tv because I cannot believe anyone is behaving as poorly as she is.. yet apparently thinks she is ok.

Sharla said...

She says she does so much. I thought she had helpers do a lot of that. I`m sure she found a cleaning lady again.

logical said...

how much you want to bet those 3 hats holding jobs are the boys?

takers? anyone?

PA Woman said...

I'm confused by something. Why are so many posting on Kates Blog? if you take a look at the articles posted daily on Cafe Mom, they are all filled with controversy. And, if you do a search on Kate, they have several negative blogs on there about her going back several yrs. It appears to me, that Cafe Mom is looking for controveresy and the comments are just feeding into what they hired her for. Especially since the articles are pretty boring.

Leigh Ann said...

How much sugar are those kids getting? Juice at breakfast (even if it is diluted), two juice boxes at lunch, a cookie in their lunch, ice cream in a sugar cone for dessert after dinner. She'd save a lot of money if they kids drank water (my daughter takes a reusable water bottle in her lunch) and had dessert once a week. I don't know that they eat dessert after dinner every night but they are having a cookie with lunch every day.

According to body language experts, a person who say UMM before answering a question, is being deceptive. Sound familiar ???

Heffner Road fm Florida said...

Now that Joy and Elizibeth are leaving the View....anyone think that Kate may apply for one of the positions?

Mary said...

Hi

with two openings on the view Is Katie on here way to L A to beg Barbara to let her be one af the new hosts. Ih she is It will be cancelled with-in the year.

Liz said...

Mary -

Kate can beg all she wants but I have a hard time believe they dump Hasselbeck to get an even more polarizing figure on the panel.

Kate has a small contingent of big supporters but far more people who really dislike her. I can't see her getting the job. Oh, not to mention that she is terrible as a host, but that's besides the point.

jennine s said...

there would be allot of Umm, Umm. LOL

Mary said...

those cookies must be either hard or soggy when the kids get them.

Heffner Road fm Florida said...

Hey Kate...we know you read this site...

Better hurry up the the last position on the VIEW..Brooke Shields got one...one left...you know you will not get it even if you tried...

kinman said...

I think as long as Whoopi is on the View, Kate will probably not be in consideration for a host job. However, ABC did get good ratings with her Wife Swap episode so they might be considering her as a " ratings draw". I do not like The View, but it would be awful if she was on it. She cannot carry on an intelligent conversation and people would tire of her very quickly. She is however, stirring the pot with her followers on social media saying she is "working on something and cannot say what". Some are begging for an actual date as to when she will tell them WHAT she is working on. So she does still have a following of "fans" and she is leading them on with something that she has in the works. She has always said how much she "feels at home" on television, so I bet it is some type of talk show gig. It does seem like she has had some work done on her face (probably to get herself camera ready) Too bad she does not have the personality to be on a tv show. She is too abrasive and mot people just do not care for her.

SuzieO said...

It's hard to pick which blog is the worst but I have to go with What happens when Mom gets sick. She alternates between poor me and aren't I great in each blog and each one is full of lies.

There is no way that those kids eat as much as she has listed so that was the poor me aspect. Then she mentions in ever blog how she makes the lunches every day, in every blog, every day in every blog... UGH!! So what!! Your kids are in school all day and you had a full time housekeeper until recently.

And what a great mom she is to make huge batches of cookies to freeze for the kids to take to school. She says they are healthy because they are made from scratch. She still knows nothing about nutrition and thinks anything and everything that is organic or home made is healthy... UGH!

Then the blog where she is sick... the kids come to her smiling... omg, when was the last time the tups smiled when around her, they are so obviously scared of her. In her blog stories she is painting herself to be patient and loving but still cannot hide that in her mind it is all about her and not the kids.

As I was scrolling down to see the comments I saw a link for Kate getting a show through TLC called Twist of Kate and I clicked on it. Turns out to be a 2 year old article that just trashes and I mean trashes Kate. Wonder is she's seen that? Here's the link to that:

Cafe Moms would want someone, who 90% of the readers don't like, to do a blog for them.

marce said...

what keep Kate going the last couple of years after everyone knew what a witch she was the haters.. Like a train wreck , we had to watch this . She didn't care it was negative, it kept her in the public eye...Barbara Walters is on her way out, i don't think she is leaving thinking about turning Kate into a star..
If everyone who hated Kate stopped clicking on her stories, she would of been gone a long time ago.. We have all enabled her to sit on her ass and be delusional in her quest for stardom..
Jon was a nice young guy who got trapped, now he is a just a loser as a dad , for whatever his reasons are, he allowed her to even this year, pimp out those kids for her own benefit.
The more tweeter followers she has, good or bad, its all in the numbers, and that is what keeps her going and still keeps the offers coming her way... The fact she screws them up everytime, don't seem to matter...

I agree. I've never posted there, and don't even use twitter. At first I didn't even go in and read the blogs, but finally got curious and checked them out one day. I don't think the stir will fire her, unless people STOP reading her and Stop paying attention. They honestly don't care what she writes or how bad it is as long as people keep coming.

The Stir is a totally different beast compared to CC.

I went to "the Stir" site and I feel silly that I did. I really was expecting more, much more from the "family values (count them 8) Kate. Maybe it's just me but I feel this year's marathon went beyond the runners. Innocent bystanders were the true "victims". Yes, the runners worked long and hard to be allowed to participate but the over-whelming tragedy extended far above that.

Reading Kate's version of the day's events and how important running is to her, she shows how myopic she is towards those people that she considers beneath her. To bad, too sad! The phrase, "a rose by any other name would smell...." runs through my mind. Yes, I meant to leave off the last words.

hannah said...

She said the runners had the finish line "stolen" from them. I am sure most of the runners are thanking the lord that they are alive and not hurt. I doubt how fast I ran even matters to them.

Haven't looked at Kates blogs for about 3 weeks so I thought I'd check it out. The Stir has to be loving this. A bunch of adults arguing over a totally meaningless blog by Kate. As their rules for posting say, they love controversy.

In her last blog she skimmed through that she had to drop the six younger kids at a bus stop as their dad had them for the weekend. Somehow I can't see Kate letting her six (count them, 6) kids take a bus. Hardly "star" quality transportation. Oh sorry, they aren't the stars.
