That John Deere vehicle the kids got for their birthday is $6,000. Good grief. And that's on top of the carnival. I wonder what the twins got for their birthday?

I was glad I remembered hearing Kate say she hid the gift on a shelf in the barn or something to that effect because for a short while I was worried she bought them a pony. Not that a begrudge a kid who lives in the country a pony but Kate really doesn't need another living thing to take care of or pass onto the nanny to take care of.

the gator is 10,000 dollars because it is electric.

Heffner Road said...

I am sure TLC paid for it... as for the entire party.

Leigh Ann said...

I'm sure TLC didn't pay for it. They wouldn't want any potential liability of one of the kids got hurt.

Anonymous said...

Just like the play houses the company gave it to her for free advertising.

Debbie H said...

I believe TLC paid for it all including the Gator...I figure Kate demanded that as part of her agreeing to do the special...And I may be wrong, but I don't think once you have given a "gift" to someone(that is, Kate) that liability follows the gift...It's hers and on her property and used with her consent and TLC is OUT of the picture on that note....

Anonymous said...

TLC would never have paid for the Gator, but they would have made arrangements with the company for it to appear on the show.

More of Kate's "piecing and patching" LOL

SJ said...

I'm reading the Hoffman book now. I don't know WHO paid for the Gator and the party, but rest assured it wasn't Kate. One thing that really comes through in the book is what an opportunist Kate is. From the day the kids were born, she was pitching companies for what they could provide her.

Debbie H said...

That is so true...and IF TLC didn't get roped into paying for the Gator, then I would be willing to bet Kate paid a visit to her local John Deere dealer and arranged to get a free Gator out of the deal if she managed to have it "appear" in the show for a minute to get some free advertising...Rest assured she never wrote a check for anything for those kids that she could get someone else to foot the bill for...

Anonymous said...

To understand how the show works, they have people on staff who arrange all the visits, gifts, travel, etc, to be as much free to both the show participant and the network as possible. They're there to convince the vendor to give the item in exchange for being seen on the show. They talked John Deere out of it or we wouldn't have seen it.

Kate doesn't do this. It is up to the network to take care of the product placement in exchange for free advertising.

AHHHH Poor Kate

The View has not called her and she will not be a host on " The View" Rosie O donnell will be back.. Which Child will she blame for this

Leigh Ann said...

Liability might be an issue. I interviewed a Make A Wish representative once. She said they can't grant teens' wishes of cars because of their liability insurance. If one of those kids got hurt I'm sure Jon would have no issue with suing either TLC or John Deere (if they knew the Gator was a gift for children) for giving it to them in the first place. I guess it could vary from state to state. But I'm pretty John Deere would not want to see their product misused on TV. Someone else could see the Gosselin kids riding around on one on TV, think it's a great gift, get their kid one, then sue JD when the kid gets hurt because it was implied on the show that this was an appropriate item for a child.

Anonymous didn't say that TLC didn't make the arrangements. Quite the contrary. If you read the post, Anonymous explained how it works with the networks.

Whether or not TLC paid for it in its entirety, or if it was product placement in exchange for free advertising, would only be speculation from anyone not associated with TLC or the Gator company. Maybe some money exchanged hands; maybe not.

Kate Gosselin Slams Tell-All Book As ‘Fabricated & Untrue’ — Will She Take Legal Action?

Posted on Jul 9, 2014 @ 12:58PM

Revealed: Tell-All Exposes Kate's Thirst For Fame
Kate Gosselin Calls Kids 'Disabled' In Letter


Kate Gosselin is outraged at the re-release of an explosive tell-all book about her, slamming it as “fabricated and untrue” — but only RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned whether the mother-of-eight plans to take any legal action against author Robert Hoffman.

In 2012 Hoffman released the book with bombshell allegations that Gosselin used a wooden spoon to spank her children and was cruel to the family pets.

Gosselin shot back with a multi-million dollar lawsuit against Hoffman, and her ex-husband Jon, for hacking and wiretapping, claiming he gave the author the hard-drive from her computer — but she eventually dropped her lawsuit and the book was pulled from publication.

Until June 24, 2014, when Hoffman re-released Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World, The Rise and Fall of a Reality TV Queen with some additional new and damning information about the Kate Plus 8 star, including claims that she used her children to gain fame and fortune, and even called them “disabled” in a letter to the State of Penn. when begging for free full-time childcare.

So will Gosselin be taking legal action against Hoffman again?

“Kate’s not going to take any legal action at this time,” a source close to the reality TV star told Radar.

“She feels the book is already ‘out there’ and thinks that ‘even though a lot of things are fabricated and untrue,’ she doesn’t feel the need to drudge up old news and waste unnecessary money on attorney fees that could go to feeding her children’s mouths.”

Hoffman confirms that no legal action is being taken telling Radar he hasn’t heard a peep from Gosselin’s camp or legal team.

“I believe people have a right to hear all sides of the story and not just the side that the people with the most money want to shove down their throats. People are smart enough to make their own decisions and make up their own minds based on the facts,” Hoffman previously told Radar of his decision to re-release the book.

“I think it’s time for all the cards to be put on the table and to let the chips fall where they may.”

Zoey said...

For a good laugh check out her twitter from the past 4 days. She appears to be engaging some kid who's followers are kate bashing. As far as I can tell the account belongs to a teen and kate keeps carrying on for days about the "bullying". It's weird! She needs helps.

Had enough said...

I thought Kate didn't care what people said about her.

jennine s said...

Kate won't sue Robert, or Jon as she know that in the hearing she will be sworn to testify. Unless she lies on the stand, she will need to verify that the allegations are true.
Plus suing is expensive, and as we know, Kate is "piecing and patching"

It's not a kid. It's a 30-something woman who is in public relations (or so she says) and wants to work for Kate. She asked Kate for her contact information. She is "friends" with someone who was Michael Jackson's hair/makeup person. This person has now gone private and has aligned herself with those who Kate allegedly told to "take down" awhile back.

Tanks 4 the Mammaries said...

I bought the tell-all book, mainly because I wanted to lend my support to Hoffman's efforts, and also because it had been censored in 2012. (Yes, that censorship was a factor in my decision to buy it later.)

However, once I had it, I couldn't bring myself to read it to the end. Not just yet. There's enough pain and sorrow in my own life; I can't take on the burden of reliving it on behalf of those kids.

Let's face it, the damage has already been done to them. They already have the scars from their mom's horrific temper.

She has a fan base (small but apparently stable) of abusive harridans who would never deign to take anger management classes, preferring to blame their targets and support each other with motivational success cliches.

Either that, or the syrupy sentimental who are deliberately blind to the reality behind a fantasy they use as emotional morphine.

The youngest children's photos while urinating and defecating have already been circulated among pedophiles, thanks to Kate's method of (awwww, so cute!) televised toilet training.

I had hoped Jon would summon the strength to go to bat for them, but he has not. I am disappointed in him; however, I don't blame him too harshly.

It was the perfect storm of Frankenstein science mixed with an unbalanced woman's intense ambition. Maybe few men could have withstood it.

I hope those kids have close enough relationships with their siblings to comfort and strengthen them. I hope they can connect with some stable people outside that household.

It wasn't canceled. In May, Donald tweeted that he was happy to announce Season Seven was picked up by NBC. A recent announcement was made that as of now they aren't sure where it is going to go in the network lineup.
It might never see the light of day, but that hasn't been decided.

Cara plays lacrosse on the school team and the tournament was last weekend in New Jersey.

Kate has tweeted that she and Jamie are still friends. I don't believe they ever stopped talking. Kate tweeted photos awhile back of the two of them cleaning the hood of the stove.

Banking On Freebies — Kate Gosselin Sold Kids’ Clothes To Consignment Instead Of Donating Them, Claims Author

Posted on Jul 17, 2014 @ 4:35AM

kate-gosselin-sold-kids-clothes-consignment-money-instead-donating-them-PP-SL

Kate Gosselin has no problem accepting freebies, but according to tell-all book author Robert Hoffman she doesn’t reciprocate by giving back.

In 2009, at the height of her family’s fame and fortune — a millionaire at the time, Hoffman claims — he witnessed Gosselin on several occasions take piles of the children’s clothes to a consignment store where she would trade them in for money.

In Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled The World, Hoffman claims these were clothes that Gosselin, 39, didn’t even pay for in the first place.

“I followed her, several times, to a consignment shop in Shillington, PA, where she carried in piles of children’s clothing, to RESELL. Kate Gosselin, a millionaire, was selling clothes she didn’t even pay for in the first place to those truly in need,” Hoffman claimed in the explosive book.

“There is no disputing this because I watched her and photographed her doing this, and the paparazzi photographed her doing this. I also spoke to the consignment shop owner after Kate had left. This particular shop is 3 miles from my house, and I had been there many times before.”

What’s more, Hoffman says the route to the Pennsylvania consignment store forced Gosselin to drive right by a Goodwill Industries store where she could have donated the items and even received a tax write off — but instead chose to bank the extra cash.

“The worst part of this story is that, on the way to that consignment shop from her house, Kate had to drive by – in her $69,000 Toyota Land Cruiser – a giant Goodwill Industries distribution center and retail store, where she could have donated the items and gotten a tax write off in the process,” the book states.

“Kate was a millionaire getting everything for free, and she was reselling her children’s free clothing, rather than donating it to the needy.”

As Radar previously reported, Gosselin called the re-release of Hoffman’s book “fabricated and untrue,” but it’s likely she will not take legal action against him this time.

“Kate’s not going to take any legal action at this time,” a source close to the reality TV star told Radar.

“She feels the book is already ‘out there’ and thinks that ‘even though a lot of things are fabricated and untrue,’ she doesn’t feel the need to drudge up old news and waste unnecessary money on attorney fees that could go to feeding her children’s mouths.”

Why wouldn't they? My kids, if given the choice, would prefer grilled fish (salmon, tilapia) over a greasy burger or fast food, and they really like baked sweet potatoes, for some reason!

They also pick the snow peas out of Chinese dishes and eat them separately. I guess I just have strange children!

Kate Gosselin Allegedly Drops The R-Bomb In Disrespectful Email, Calls Mother’s Multiples Group ‘Retarded’

Posted on Jul 22, 2014 @ 3:54AM


In another email allegedly written by Kate Gosselin, tell-all book author Robert Hoffman claims the reality TV queen used the offensive term “retarded” — and RadarOnline.com has all the exclusive details.

Hoffman claims to have obtained a boat load of emails written by Gosselin and writes about them with excerpts in his explosive book, Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled The World.

In one such telling email dated in Dec. 2006, an organization for mothers with multiples allegedly reached out to Kate’s ex, Jon, to get them involved in their cause and the mother-of-eight’s response is deemed “curt” and “offensive” by Hoffman.

“On December 31, 2006, Jon forwarded Kate an email that he had received the day before from the coordinator of something called the ‘MOST’ forum. (MOST stands for Mothers of Supertwins.) The forum coordinator, ‘Patti T,’ asked Jon if he would post something to introduce himself and his family on the forum,” Hoffman writes.

“It is not clear why Patti T’s email annoyed Kate, but her curt response to Jon about it is offensive. Kate said, ‘These people are retarded!’”

Labeled the R-word, the term ‘retarded’ is something many advocacy groups have been working hard to omit from the English vocabulary because of its offensive nature.

And while the Special Olympics declined to comment directly on Kate’s use of the word, they issued the following general statement to Radar:

“We’re always saddened and disappointed when we hear people using the R-word,” Christy White, Director of Global Media and Public Relations at the Special Olympics, told Radar.

“We encourage people to go to R-word.org and take the pledge. It’s important because it’s respect toward everyone.”

It’s not the first time Hoffman exposed Kate’s alleged emails, one of which revealed a letter she wrote to the State of Pennsylvania after the sextuplets were born, pleading for free childcare aid — claiming her children were “disabled.”

“We have eight children four years old and under. Our six youngest are 11 months old. In a sense our children (our six 11 month olds) are disabled,” the letter reads in Hoffman’s book.
“They cannot feed themselves, transport themselves up and down stairs or at all, bathe themselves, get a drink when they are thirsty, go to the bathroom by themselves, put themselves to bed or dress themselves.”

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

I don't think Kate ever tried to hide the fact that she took the kids clothes to a consignment shop after they outgrew them.
In fact, this was the reason that she had all those meltdown's if a kid dribbled some food on their shirt or wanted to play in the grass (grass stains, oh no), and why they wore bibs for so long. Consignment stores won't accept clothes with stains.

Not only that but in the early J&K episodes we see them going to the post office daily to pick up packages of freebies being sent to them by the general public.

Whatever she decided can't be used was sold at their yearly garage sale. Why would she even think of donating where there is money to be made? As if anyone could be more "entitled" than she is?

I haven't read Hoffman's book but I'm still waiting to hear something that we all here haven't known all along.

Read Robert's book. It contains volumes of Kate's misdeeds that we did't know about. Did you know that she punished one of the boys for letting the door open? She locked him outside in the freezing cold where he begged to be allowed to come inside. Did you know that when the dog accidentally pooped inside, she allegedly held one of the kid's face down to the poop, inches close to it?

Based on the list, it sounds about right. It's not like she treats the kids any better.

Anonymous said...

I thought this was an interesting rule for the crew--the "product placement" part:

Do not help yourself to tools, our equipment etc. (including product placement items).

So I think the John Deere Gator was definitely a product placement.

I suspected this was something Kate was up to as early as when she was suddenly reading a children's book to the kids several years ago--they all gathered around and each had a stuffed animal of the main character (wish I could remember the book!) Then they either watched the movie, or the movie based on the book was about to come out. Anyway, as an elementary teacher I knew the sextuplets were too young for the book, and probably wouldn't even "get it." At the time, I thought--this is product placement pure and simple.

Wow...just wow. So everything that was suspected and rumored about Kate trying to do Beth out of her share of the book is all true.

Longtime watchers of the show will probably remember that Beth and her husband allowed Gosselin family pix to be taken on their property when Jon and Kate still lived in their small house. Like Aunt Jody, Beth cared for those children at her own home. Both of those women were soft spoken and loving to the children.

On another note, I recently read that Collin was the child most often picked on/possibly hit by Kate. I remember posting on here a few years ago, when Kate and the kids were in NYC (and Kate was running in heels with dripping ice cream cones!) that it was on film for all to see that Kate physically and roughly shoved Colin back down in his seat on the top of the double decker bus (after he asked for a different kind of ice cream?)

My heart goes out to these children!

I didn't have a problem with their TV show. The money really improved the children's lives, but this abuse is now documented and very real. it was easy to see that she wasn't the warmest Mom on the show, but these reports..... It is just horrible.

I also think the interactions with Kate, Mady and Kara are strange, way beyond normal teen behavior. There are a lot of issues there. They are old enough to remember the younger kids being treated this way and I'm sure, over time, we will hear more. They need to grow-up first and not be so dependent on Kate to finally be able to talk.

Does anyone know how their financial situation really is right now? I question if Kate is just playing into people's sympathies but I do remember that they have a large mortgage on the house (700k) and the kids' schooling is around 70k per year total. That's a lot of expenses to carry.

Kate’s Bodyguard Steve Neild Returns To Wife & Sons, Takes A New Job
Kate Gosselin: Jon Lives His Own Life etonline.com



























He might not be her bodyguard anymore, but that doesn’t mean Steve Neild and Kate Gosselin are going to stop seeing each other!

In fact, the two were photographed Tuesday night at the One Direction concert in New Jersey with Gosselin’s 13-year-old twin daughters — just one week after reports surfaced that Neild left his post with the reality TV family to go back to his wife and kids.

Romance rumors about Neild, 51, and Gosselin, 39, swirled for years, and his wife Gina finally threw down the gauntlet.

Gina “told him his time with Kate as her bodyguard was making the family miserable and that he had to make a choice,” a source told The National ENQUIRER.

An insider exclusively tells Radar the two are still “broken up” but remain friends, despite trying to cut off all communication, “they will always have a connection.”

“I was just in a bathroom with kate plus 8 wtf!?!?” one tweeter wrote before posting a photo of Neild, Gosselin and the twins Mady and Cara, with the caption: “KATE PLUS 8 and the twins.”

PHOTOS: Cheaters Gallery

“its always fun to see kate gosselin at concerts,” another captioned, showing Neild and Gosselin sitting next to each other at the show.

According to the insider, Neild is still trying to patch things up with his family before his marriage crumbles away, but he remains friends with the Gosselins.

“Steve’s still not working for Kate again. It’s over. But they’re still friends,” a source told Radar.

“But for years Steve has been the only consistent man in the Gosselin children’s lives, so they love him and like when he’s around.”

In March Neild and Gosselin were spotted at another concert with Mady and Cara — a Demi Lovato show in Virginia where eyewitnesses said the two were being lovey dovey.

No signs of affection reported at Tuesday night’s One Direction show between the two.

Anonymous said...

Oh, yes, I'm sure they "love" him-remember how Mady got reamed out by Kate on their RV trip when she wanted to eat a piece of pizza that "belonged to" precious Steve?

And...I've always wondered why KATE needs the bodyguard when they are with the children--shouldn't he be protecting the twins/ the sextuplets?

He works with The Little Couple--can't Steve see what wonderful people, and what love and devotion to each other look like? ???

I really wonder what made Beth finally speak out on this. She's been so quiet for so long, and in a way, I think she could have helped the kids and especially Kevin, Jodi, and even Jon when they were raked through the mud. But I guess she might have had a confidentiality agreement. Who knows! I cannot believe that someone like Beth or one of the TLC employees has not come forward to shed some light on what these poor kids have been put through.

We don't know that CPS wasn't called. Robert Hoffman said that he reported it twice. If a complaint is filed, it must be investigated. However, those records are sealed, so we don't know who reported anything (unless they come out and say they reported it), nor do we know the results of the findings.

Most likely because either TLC employees signed non-disclosures, or because they want to keep their jobs.

Just days after he and his supposed employer were spotted hanging with her reality TV kids at a One Direction concert, RadarOnline.com has learned that Neild joined the monster mom and her brood for a family vacation to Massachusetts!

On August 11, Neild, Gosselin, and her gaggle of kids were spotted visiting Plimoth Plantation in Plymouth, Mass.

“We noticed Kate and her eight kids walking towards the entrance,” eyewitness Jennifer Kelly tells Radar exclusively. “I had my camera in hand and when I went to take a picture of Kate and the kids, Steve Neild came around the car and ended up in the picture!” Gosselin’s twin daughters, Mady and Cara, a friend, and one of the sextuplets appear in the background.

“I was a bit shocked as he bolted around the corner, and I said, ‘Hey, I know who you are!’” Kelly explains. “He said, ‘Who’s that?’ And I said, ‘You’re Kate’s bodyguard, Steve!’ He replied, ‘Yup!’”

While Kelly didn’t notice any PDA between Neild and Gosselin, she reveals, “Steve rode there with Kate and the kids. My husband was about five feet behind me and he said that he saw Steve, Kate, and the kids getting out of her black sprinter van, the BBB, as she calls it.”

What’s more, Kelly claims, the vacation was being captured by reality TV crew cameras!

“The film crew was shooting to the right of the photo, as Kate and the kids were heading in,” Kelly says. “Steve kept standing in front of me and blocking my view. It was about 4:45 pm and they closed at 5 pm. I assume that they were either shooting for a new special or Kate Plus 8 is coming back!

Neild and Gosselin were last spotted together on August 5 at a One Direction concert in New Jersey, as Radar reported.

Earlier this summer, rumors had swirled that Neild had left his post with the reality TV family to go back to his wife and kids after years of romance rumors surrounding him and Gosselin.

Steve never stopped working for Kate, and it's obvious. Steve must think that he needs to guard Kate from her crazy fans. He's not guarding the kids, because he is always so far away from them. Does anyone know if they were filming this vacation to air on TLC?

Hi. My first post here. I had to go anonymous because I couldn't figure out how to make a name.

In regards to the twins writing a tell all one day, I can totally see Kate going to them on their 18th birthday and threatening to cut them off if they don't sign a non disclosure agreement.
As sick as it sounds, I wouldn't put it past Kate to do that.

Hopefully, they are more wise than to sign anything...I can bet you Mady will do what she wants to do regardless of what Kate wants and hopefully the rest will follow suit...Will be interesting how Kate plans to sponge off the twins when they do grow up....all the money will go to THEM after 18...So even if Kate manages to make a few more dollars off them for now,they aren't going to be little for long...And then what's she going to do for money after she turns 45 or 50??? Will be interesting to see what happens to her then...:)
