2015 and Kate is still around.  So sad for those kids.

Kate on Celebrity Apprentice! I was so torn... I really wanted to see her fired first, but, I also really wanted her to be on longer so everyone can see what a tool she is!

couch potato said...

I'm okay with it. As long as it's just Kate on T.V. and not the kids. She won't last long. I think they made her project manager.

jessicac said...

She's like a cockroach. Nobody likes her and she's hard to get rid of.

How on earth did she get another season on tlc?!?!

Heffner Road said...

does she get paid on CA ????

Anonymous said...

Yes, Kate will be paid for Celebrity Apprentice.

I didn't know who was scheduled on Celebrity Apprentice for this go-round, but I recorded the premiere as I've always liked the show.
Imagine my surprise when I sat to watch it:)Promptly erased and cancelled future recordings.
I just can't.
Disappointed that they're back on TLC too. The commercials don't make it look like the kids are having a bunch of fun. It also looks like many of the shows will be based on special trips and whatnot again.

Debbie H said...

According to what I read way back, the celebrities on Apprentice(who are doing it for charity) are paid $16,000....Not exactly something to write home about, but I doubt most of them are doing it for the money, anyway...

Heffner Road said...

Kate is.... is this the night she gets fired?

Ohio Buckeye said...

Just saw a promo for the impending Gosselin special. Kate Gosselin is STILL in full- on whine mode, complaining that being a single parent makes everything sooo hard. Oh, please.

Time for me to find an episode of "Rehab Addict" - another single mom who CELEBRATES being a mom, never complains about being a single parent, AND actually WORKS for a living.

Kate Gosselin is so 2008 - happily, she has been replaced by smart, capable, hard working women like Nicole Curtis, who gives our daughters a far more positive example of just how resourceful, resilient, and joyful we women can be, yes, Kate, even while single parenting.

Heffner Road said...

Cannot believe she was not fired....she did not talk, sat their like a dunce....what gives????

Kate Gosselin ✔ @Kateplusmy8

Thank you to my friend...aka my generous donor who drove all the way from Pa to deliver such a generous check.... #LetsDrinkToThat #HA

Heffner Road said...

how much was the check for Kate?

jennine s said...

CA is all about controversy, not skill. The show is about ratings.

Heffner Road said...

Hey Kate...the men won....

I'm SO happy we won...AND I was SOOO happy to get outta that boardroom..... #😉

Just read that Kate is dating a millionaire business owner, claiming she's now the happiest she's ever been in her life. This guy has children of his own from a previous marriage. Should they decide to marry, I hope he's man enough to demand a prenup, to prevent Kate & her brood from profiting from what doesn't belong to them!

Watching the premiere of Kate plus 8 and wondering, why is Kate wearing the little girls tank top and shorts?

Anonymous said...

I'm watching the new episode of Kate+8 & she seems a little calmer. Maybe finally she was properly medicated.

jennine s said...

I call the calmness resignation. The kids rule!

mickey said...

I watched a few minutes of Kate Plus 8, and really wanted to be ill. All she does is complain about having 8 kids! Okay, you could have stopped at 2! She really comes off as a terrible Mother to me, and I don't understand why TLC gave her a show. Her constant eye rolling, and grimacing..they say she is dating....I can't wrap my head around this at all

mel said...

Why is she complaining about laundry when the majority of the clothes have price tags on them and are still on the store hangers?

Anonymous said...

I was SO bored watching last night's episode that I fast-forwarded thru most of it...same old thing...kids have bad attitudes, TLC paying for a fake vacation, Katie Irene complaining about just about everything....plus the non-stop screaming that means "look at me." Can't TLC find anything new? Blah, blah, blah...

MayDay said...

So being a native New Englander and actually lived in Plymouth I am offended how Kate mocked an historical event. She will make a fool out of anything and anyone.

IrishMan said...

Its all over now people,huge ratings an I'm afraid to say but this vile woman is on TV to stay.TLC will jump to sign her for more seasons with the other crap they put on.....who in the heck is watching this JUNK

Sharla said...

Ratings were not huge. They're actually middling. 1.795 M viewers and a .7 rating. If they drop form here as usually happens, they'll be borderline dismal by the end of the specials.

IrishMan said...

Ya Sharla I just saw TV by the #'s an they were a whole lot different than the press release on my Yahoo page,someone twisting the numbers around maybe

jennine s said...

Ratings not as large as the part 1 of the birthday special in . Ratings will continue to drop as the season goes by.

kidsfirst said...

But see, the producers are actually setting up controversy regardless how it affects the kids. The previews show Kate about to boil live lobsters over the protests of one of the girl tups. To me it looks like they went out of their way to set up this confrontation disregarding any feelings the child might have.

jennine s said...

And that is why exploiting children is so harmful. The producers go for the shock effect.

Zoey said...

Judging by this episode, jon was right when said the kids have problems with wants and needs and morals and values.

Debbie H said...

I predict that ratings will steadily decline with each episode and by the time the 5th and final one airs, there will be no doubt to TLC or anyone else that Kate and her 8 are finally done with their 15 LONG minutes....

suzieo said...

Someone is definitely dressing her on C.A. No way she could dress herself that classy.

Heffner Road said...

Thought Kate would get fired tonight....It will happen...

Heffner Road said...

Kate escaped twice tonight getting fired....dont understand

Unknown said...

Why is Kate walking around her kitchen with a parakeet on her shoulder? So filthy with birds droppings everywhere...in the kitchen no less. The girls a neat fanatic...????? Also, I never see the dog in the house playing with the kids. Guess the poor thing isn't aloud in the house.

Heffner Road said...

Kate Gosselin is reportedly dating a millionaire, Jeff Prescott, but how much does she know about her new man? Not only does he have a nasty divorce in his past, but also, RadarOnline.com has learned, he filed for bankruptcy more than once!

According to court documents obtained by Radar, Gosselin’s reported boyfriend and his then-wife, Michelle Jones, filed for bankruptcy in their hometown of Barnstable, Mass., in June 1993. The terms of the case are sealed to the public, but it was fully discharged by November 8 of that year, and terminated on November 22.







Before that, he had filed Chapter 7 individually in October 1988 in Barnstable. That case was discharged and terminated by May of the next year. The documents, beyond a brief summary obtained by Radar, are also sealed to the public.

In both cases, Prescott filed under his legal name, Jeffrey A. Jones. He began using the last name Prescott for business purposes around 20011, according to records obtained by Radar.

The secret bankruptcies aren’t the only skeletons hiding in his closet: He’s also been reported to have had a nasty divorce from his first wife.

PHOTOS: One Big Happy Family? The Gosselins All In One Place – With Steve The Bodyguard!

But are they even dating or is it all one big Gosselin PR move? The Kate Plus 8 star downplayed the buzz in a recent interview with People: “I’m like, really?” she said, insisting they are working on a top-secret business project together. “I get it. Everyone wants me to be dating. I hear it loud and clear. It just doesn’t happen that easily, but I want it just as much as anyone does.”

Gosselin was previously linked to her married bodyguard, Steve Neild, although both insisted it was a professional relationship.

Does Prescott seem like a good match for Gosselin? Let us know in the comments!

Animals have no souls says kate... Takes a soulless animal to know a soulless animal. No wonder she's disconnected from the dog.

I'm ready, Mr. DeMille said...

I saw the last CA show and found it amusing that when "the Donald" asked Kate (two different times) a question, her rambling answers were pitiful. Both times, he cut her off and moved on to another "celeb". She sounded like the young beauty contestant from years ago who droned on and on in circles and never addressed or answered the question that was asked. FUNNY! Kate was so proud of herself for insisting on Fresh flowers instead of plastic ones for the decor because someone of Ivanka's standing would be insulted by the plastic ones. Ivanka did not look too pleased by the comment and said that the ideas of flowers was not relatable to her shoe business and were not necessary. FUNNY!

Kate really seems to resent Viveca Foxx and it appears the feelings are mutual. Looking forward to the cast's comments on this show when it is finally over. As it now stands, I will not watch any more of this.

Suzie O said...

I'm enjoying CA with Kate on it... never laughed so much while watching that show. As long as it's Kate without the kids I'm ok with it.

Melanie said...

I saw on a commercial for Kate Plus 8, and Kate made the comment (paraphrasing) : "It's no wonder I suffer from a stress disease." Does anyone know what she is talking about? I can't bring myself to watch any of the new (or any of the old ones either for that matter) episodes so I have no idea what is going on beyond the brief clips they show on commercials for the show.

Heffner Road fm Florida said...

she will be in heaven tonight,,,,here in Florida at 7 its on tlc Kate plus 8 and at nine on NBC CA

Sean said...

I will admit I watched a few minutes of the special out of curiosity. I started thinking of Lucille Ball, now I loved Lucy, but I remember in 1986 she came back on TV and failed.

For some reason I thought of Kate and her kids, I'm not comparing her to the great Lucy(no way), but her time has passed. Trying to do cute things with the kids worked years ago, but it doesn't work now.

I didn't see the part about the lobsters, but they didn't they do that years ago?

Anyway, she needs to move on. Maybe when Kate is ready for a nursing home they can show the 45 yr old twins dropping her off and smiling.

Anonymous said...

It's time for Kate to move on. Don't care for her and she is exploiting her kids. Her shows have become very boring and she is only trying to live life the way she did when her kids were young and the show was fun then but it's time to put an end to the show!

Heffner Road fm Florida said...

Did Kate fired tonight...i could not watch as i was watching a good show on the History Channel

Tks

couch potato said...

She was just interviewed on morning tv. She's off celebrity apprentice (not a shocker). She supposed to have some sort of stress related ailments -- probably TMI. Her children are ages 10 and 14 and now they are ganging up on her (so maybe the kids are more normal than we feared). lol

jennine s said...

If kate is so stressed that she is getting sick, she should stop filming and go to a simple life. IK don't believe she has any stressed ". She wouldn't even take responsibility for being fired.

Heffner Road fm Florida said...

Did you note the $10,000 she raised was from her "new boyfriend" What a joke

Proudgrandma said...

OK, i heartily dislike Kate, but I kept thinking that the longer she is away from the kids, the better. Hopefully she was earning something, not just a wardrobe full of clothes and living it up with her boyfriend in the Trump towers.
However, that being said, I was a little bit impressed by her on the show, yes, she is a clueless twit, but she did have the sense to nix some of the bizarre ideas being thrown around, and she did pitch in when that guy (the fishing captain) had his melt down.
She didn't speak too much, which was a blessing, mind you she didn't get a chance in the second boardroom as Vivica and Kenya were going at each other like a pair of hyenas. Trump should have fired Kenya. However tonights show made me realize that there is a plan and the winner is already chosen. This is not real.
So now I am curious as to what Kate said. I imagine she had to sign some secrecy papers so that she would not reveal what it was really like.

Mary said...

anyone see her today show today. It was not on here due to a blizzard and all local stations were on. Love to know what she sai. She could not believe she was fired, But she was projject manager abd she threw (Captian) Sid under bus when she said he should go because her was PM

Zoey said...

What was all that talk about making out with an electrician for a free service? An all new low for her.

Zoey said...

I feel certain there is no heat in the boys new bedroom.

Tanya T said...

I felt so bad for the boys as Kate was screaming at them about the horrible smell in their room. " why does it always smell so horrible in here? I know what it is, it's the smell of BOYS!" She continues screaming that she is not having it, not in her house! So she banishes them to a basement bedroom. A walk out basement is not where you want to keep children, especially since she seems to think she needs a bodyguard at all times, how is having children sleeping in a walkout basement where anyone could easily break in and she wouldn't hear it in her comfy room, 2 floors above? I was seriously waiting for her to break out the wire hangers and start beating those " dirty,nasty little things" that she often calls her boys. She certainly doesn't seem to hide her feelings about boys. Let's bring up Colin's underwear fetish on TV too, way to embarrass and humiliate a 10 yr old boy!
You can see alot of Kate rubbing off on Maddy, with all of her snottiness towards the others. Princess Hannah, being Kate's favorite didn't want to be so far from Mommy during the room moving. I was honestly surprised she allowed the kids to help paint their own rooms. Though she soon flipped out over paint getting on the floor, yet the next minute she is oddly giddy over a bird sitting on Cara's shoulder while she paints. Gushing about it and snapping pics. I seriously think the woman is bipolar!

Suzie O said...

I was also shocked when she kept going on and on about the smell in the boys room. And then saying the smell was a "boy" smell and she would not have it in the new room. How are those poor boys supposed to know what she is talking about and how are they supposed to do anything about it in the new room?

Anonymous said...

The only reason she let the kids paint their rooms was for the show. No way would she have let them do that if the cameras weren't there.

Anonymous said...

I was confused by the layout of the house. It looked to me like the main set of stairs led up to kates bedroom and now the twins. A different staircase led up to the little girls' room. So if the little girls need Kate they need to go down stairs and up different stairs to her? Such a strange layout to me. Anyone else notice this? Am I wrong?

mel said...

I doubt she had shingles, it's very painful and it doesn't cause hives it causes painful blisters. (which you wouldn't want to put makeup on). I've known a few people who have had it and they were in a lot of pain as well as very sensitive to light. The blisters are usually on your torso and not on your face.

Callie said...

Did anyone else find it kinda sleazy that Kate told the kids they would get to see the boys' room "after the commercial break"? This from the woman who flipped out on Jon several years back when he mentioned that an event had occurred "last season." I remember her yelling at him that "we don't measure our lives in seasons!" Huh... how times have changed.

Heffner Road from Florida said...

Kate Gosselin may reportedly be dating a millionaire mogul— but her cash-strapped ex Jon is hardly jealous, insiders tell RadarOnline.com.

“He doesn’t care, honestly,” a friend of the 37-year-old aspiring deejay tells Radar. “He never talks about it. He doesn’t care what she does as long as it doesn’t negatively affect the kids.”

As Radar previously reported, the Kate Plus 8 star, 39, allegedly began dating Dreamstime co-founder Jeff Prescott, 51, several months ago.

While he neither confirmed nor denied his relationship with the Celebrity Apprentice reject, Prescott called her a “loving, caring mother” in an exclusive interview with Radar on Wednesday.

The philanthropist, who has homes in Massachusetts, New York and Tennessee, also referred to Jon as a “deadbeat father.”

But Jon’s friend swears he’s far from a bad dad.

I did hear that stupid remark about having a stress disease. No I did not watch the show as that woman is vile.

Why are the boys and girls now allowed in eachothers rooms? I find this really weird.
Was anyone else disturbed by her attempt at flirting with the carpenter in the little boys room? She offered to give him his and kisses and he grimaced and said or just hugs. I had to turn it off at that point, she's so fake.

jennine s said...

Kate telling WW that Steve stays in another hotel! And he is her bodyguard!!!

Debbie H said...

Just wondering if anybody has any ideas on just HOW her ratings are managing to stay up temporarily??Do you think it's because of the "Fat Life" show afterwards or because of CA? And now that she's off CA, do you think that will cause the ratings to go back down to what they should be?? The show sucks, so I'm not buying people are tuning in because they want to see a great show...

Heffner Road from Florida said...

Kate Gosselin ✔@Kateplusmy8

Turning my tv off. So much for teaching my kids that 'cheaters never win and winners never cheat' :( #Goodnight

Real Time Mom said...

She acts like she's a single mother by a choice other than her own! IMO, don't complain that single motherhood is SO HARD when you were the one to do it to yourself.

I had to turn off the tv. I wanted to see what the comments were about,but I couldn't stand the old "Im the put upon mother act"I'm just a single mom, there's so much I have to put up with act from her.
It's a wonder she can get out of bed with all she has to deal with.

mel said...

I think it's incredibly sad that one or both parent's are lying about who watched the kids for three weeks. I wish they would stop using the kids for publicity.

I have to say this episode showed Kate in a favorable light. She was friendly with people at her yard sale.They were Neighbors and former coworkers who are long lost friends, and one woman who came from Ca to go to her yard sale! People who said they watched her family on tv for a long time, and she was inspiring!

It was so nice to see!

Debbie H said...

Of COURSE she acted "nice" at the yardsale! She needed people to spend MONEY and buy her things...She can be very nice when she NEEDS you for something...Next week she wouldn't give these same people the time of day if they asked her on the street...Having said that, I am convinced now that Kate is being medicated...I am sure the TLC powers that be told her it was her attitude turning viewers off, but she would never be able to change her attitude without heavy duty meds...Wonder what she's on now?

how much did she really make? I know she said she gave so much to charity. She made kids give up some of the stuff they wanted. I see hoarders in some of these kids. You just don't make kids give away beloved items because you think its junk

Debbie H said...

If it's truly 1.4 this week, then the downward trend I predicted is happening...Too bad that next week it will still be over a million so TLC will probably think they have a HIT on their hands with her brood of money makers again...Too bad...

I'm afraid we're gonna hear an announcement shortly that TLC is ordering more specials from TFW,numbers are to good for that station.....more free vacations being filmed #riveting television

Even if TLC does make the huge mistake of ordering more "specials", Kate will never have the BIG MONEY from it she had at one time...The big money days are long gone and in a couple more years when they become teens, nobody will pay a dime to see them...She better have a good plan B for her retirement...

jennine s said...

Her ratings are tanking like we predicted. She isn't far from the 900.000 viewers when the show was cancelled a few years ago.

Anonymous said...

I love this new Kate but I think she is probably medicated. She is giving the kids some freedom and allowing them to try and solve their own problems. My question. Did anyone notice when they were shopping for furniture only little kids were Colin And Alexis. SOMEONE said the little kids were with Jon. Anyone know why Colin & Alexis weren't. I heard made and cara don't see him but I hope he hasn't decided not to see Colin and Alexis because they are a handful.

Anonymous said...

I seriously doubt Jon wouldn't want to see all of his children. It's most likely Kate's hand in this. The fact that Cara doesn't go surprises me, Mady really needs to go, she could use some of her Dad's parenting. It is so sad to see that Kate still lets her throw her fits without any repurcussions. She is letting her become her mini-me. Sad.

Bray said...

Does anyone think that one day the kids will look back at old episodes and see how lovely Beth was to them? DO you think any of these kids (not the twins, but the sextuplets) would ever rekindle the relationship they had with her? The poor kids really do need someone as kind as she is in their lives again - someone who gave them more love individually in a few short years then their own mother could ever give them.

IrishTownie said...

well after 5 episodes the numbers stayed steady,so it looks like another season or specials will be coming next season.Does TLC think viewers want to see this untalented group of brats on TV from birth till there 30

Sharla said...

Ratings: 1.444 M viewers and a .5 rating. Some fall off, but not enough to permanently cancel her. Hopefully low enough numbers to keep the renewals low.

Debbie H said...

One thing I noticed last night...TLC seemed to make a point of showing a great deal of Kate's more "unflattering" moments on the special...Is it just me or does someone over there maybe not like her very much??? And the way it ended made it look like they were kind of wrapping up the Gosselin thing...But then with decent(AAGGHH)numbers, who knows what will be thrust upon us in the future...I really don't get it other than the popularity of the show that follows the Kate plus 8 show and the CA thing...Had either one of those been missing, I believe the ratings would NOT have been there...

Sharla said...

Kate has more unflattering moments than flattering ones so it would be a lie if they only showed the good ones. Kate is in the same boat as the Roloffs. It's a cost vs ad money trade off. Or you could call it cost vs ratings since ratings are what drive the ad money. If they can produce the show cheaply enough to make 1.4 to 1.5 M viewers meet their profit goal, then she'll be back. If what she wants drops the profits too low, they won't bite. What makes it interesting is that Kate has the TLC contract so they control where she can appear.

mel said...

I just watched portions of the cleaning house episode and Cara looks so sad. Watch the photo shoot, she smiles on cue but immediately drops her eyes and smile after the fact...It is haunting. Someone needs to help these kids.

Bray said...

All the kids are miserable and misbehaving because they done have a positive male or female figure in their lives. Tooted Kate had to be so greedy and cut out Kevin, Jodi and Beth and her family. It make we wonder when the kids are older if they will ever reach back out to these people.

Kate Gosselin Dishes on Finding the Fountain of Youth

Kate Gosselin's youthful appearance has had viewers' heads turning since the premiere of this season's "Celebrity Apprentice."

But according to E! News, the mom of eight neglected to reveal any surprising reasons behind her transformation.

"I think when the world met me I was three days post having sextuplets, so the only place you can get from that point is younger," Gosselin said on the "Celebrity Apprentice" finale red carpet Tuesday night.

"So It was really just eye-trickery, I think," she continued. "You guys saw me at my worst first, and then I just kind of reversed in front of your eyes. It was nothing amazing, it was just, when you met me, who was that person?"

Gosselin currently stars in TLC's reality show "Kate Plus 8" along with her eight children.

Heffner Road fm Fllorida said...

Kate Gosselin's evolving style has been attention-grabbing -- and not always in the way she might have hoped for.

Years after we first met her, Kate's still a reality TV staple, most recently appearing on "Celebrity Apprentice." Though she's pretty much always on TV one way or the other, E! News reports that this time around, some viewers didn't recognize her.

CELEBRITY APPRENTICE -- Finale Red Carpet and Party -- Pictured: Kate Gosselin on Monday, February 16, 2015 -- (Photo by: Mike Pont/NBC/NBCU Photo Bank via Getty Images)


After eight years in the spotlight, Kate appears more youthful than ever. Could the now 39-year-old be aging in reverse? She gave E! the lowdown at the"Celebrity Apprentice" finale.

"I think when the world met me, I was three days post having sextuplets, so the only place you can get from that point is younger," she said candidly. "So it was really just eye-trickery, I think. You guys saw me at my worst first, and then i just kind of reversed in front of your eyes. It was nothing amazing, it was just, when you met me, who was that person?"

In '07, when "Jon and Kate Plus 8" hit the airwaves, the very (very, very) busy mom of six newborns was the epitome of "basic."

By the time the show ended in '09, she had a signature style: A bizarre reverse mullet with heavy highlights and asymmetrical bangs. (She probably never expected it to inspire a ton of Halloween costumes!)

Kate went glam for her stint on "Dancing With the Stars" back in 2010, rocking a glowing tan and a lighter mid-length bob.

I was kind of shocked, Kate seemed like a different person on that show. She came off surprisingly well, and it seemed like she might last a long time.

It's like she transforms into a nice, normal person when there are no messes or road trips or children involved. She was calm and rational and straightforward, completely unlike when she's around her kids. And being around a bunch of "wacky" type celebrities like Gilbert Gottfried made her look good by comparison.

Kate actually won her first task, and did all right on her second one even though it lost. I thought one of her bickering teammates would be fired, and was surprised that they got rid of Kate.

It was weird, I kind of got the impression of Kate as a genuinely nice and smart and caring person on that show. Once Kate Plus 8 returned, it gave me a sudden reminder of all her negativity and complaining.

It would be helpful if the poster could just link the article instead of copying and pasting. That way it would be known where it is from, and it would eliminate having to scroll past the blanks in the post.

Just saw this article today http://www.sheknows.com/entertainment/articles/1078818/kate-gosselins-ex-husband-makes-child-abuse-claims-in-court-documents

i know a lot of the stuff in here is old & it's come out before, but i was surprised by the comments people left on the article, so many that are so pro-kate and think she's such a saint who has it so hard, not that i'm pro-jon but none of this allegations surprise me about kate and i don't see them as being made up, some of these pro-kate commentators are just delusional

THIS IS INTERESTING

Jon Gosselin working as DJ, may run for state office


Friday March 20, 2015 12:01 AM

By Don Botch


Recent news reports about Jon Gosselin have focused on speculation that he might enter state politics next year, but during a phone conversation Friday afternoon, the former reality TV star was all about DJing.
The Sinking Spring resident was in Boston waiting to board a train, his flight home having been canceled due to snow following a gig Thursday night that he said attracted an overflow crowd at the Julep Bar in Boston's financial district.
It was his first time DJing in Boston for the former star of "Jon & Kate Plus 8," and he was enthused that it went so well.
"It was packed," he said. "They had to turn people away. There were 350 people there."
Gosselin said he's been working hard at developing his DJ skills since signing on with Eclipse Entertainers in Morgantown, a company he began working for after filling in from time to time for a former girlfriend who worked for them.
"I love it," he said. "I need to learn so much more. I'm doing beat-mashing and all that kind of stuff, but now I'm learning to scratch."
He said he's taking lessons from DJ Koolie Kirk, with whom he'll appear on April 11 at Building 24 Live in Wyomissing, and practicing daily to perfect the craft.
"It's hard," he said. "It's not easy or everyone would do it."
Gosselin said Boston was his first "get-on-an-airplane, grab-your-stuff-and-go" type of gig, but he's planning to do more touring in places such as Las Vegas and the Jersey shore points, where he's booking summer shows.
In the meantime, he has plenty of work locally. Upcoming gigs include tonight at the 19th Hole at the Swamp Pike Pub in Gilbertsville, Thursday for Country Night at the Horseshoe Pub in Honey Brook, Friday at the Gin Mill in Northampton, the first Tuesday of each month at the Bally Hotel and April 4 at the White Palm Tavern in Topton, where he has appeared before.
"That was fun," he said, "and that place has really good food and a good crowd."
The variety of places he plays means he has to be prepared for just about anything musically.
"Playing a bar, you don't know who's walking through the door," he said. "Playing a club, you can play a playlist and go with the flow, and you kind of know that stuff beforehand. But a bar? I don't know who's going to be at Swamp Pike (tonight). ... You could go from country to rock 'n' roll to Top 40 to hip-hop to whatever."
Gosselin said it's a relief to be able to live a more normal life now that the "Jon & Kate Plus 8" days are behind him.
"It's hard to explain it to people," he said. "You had to be there, like out in Wernersville with 40 paparazzi standing at the fence. ... No matter where you went, they would just follow you everywhere. It's a different life.
"Now, I'm sitting in a train station (and nobody's bothering me). They take pictures at the venues (where he DJs), and then I'm like a normal part of society the next day."
Gosselin said he's focused on DJing for now, but politics has interested him since he worked in IT for the governor's office for three years during the Rendell administration. He confirmed that he's had some discussions with people he met during that time about a run for state representative, but it's still in the exploratory phase.

I truly believe that the comments made on Radaronline by the pro-Kate "people" are the same person. Those comments are from a delusional person for sure.

What reality television giveth, reality television cruelly taketh away. In honor of Kate Gosselin's 40th birthday on March 28, 2015, we're finding out what happened to the real-life TV villains you love (and love to hate) once their moment in the spotlight was over, starting with Kate herself. In 2004, the Pennsylvania nurse and her IT nerd husband welcomed sextuplets into their family, which already included twin girls, and "Jon & Kate Plus 8" was born. Matriarch Kate proved to be as tender and empathetic as Godzilla making his way through downtown Tokyo. She assiduously berated her then-husband, Jon Gosselin, yet lapped up attention fame brought her family. They divorced, and her show was canceled in 2011. But Kate never gave up, and fought to stay relevant and get her family back on TV. In 2014, she trotted out her two teenage daughters on the "Today" show, where she demanded that her suddenly sullen girls "Spit it out!" when they wouldn't speak. She then showed up on "Celebrity Apprentice." Finally, TLC made her dreams come true when the network greenlit a new incarnation of her show "Kate Plus 8" in early 2015. Keep clicking for more!

Reality TV Villains: Where Are They Now?

Where is and what is she doing....no tweets since 3/25?????

Debbie H said...

Knowing her tremendous LUCK, she'll probably be back tweeting how she just got back from doing something wonderful(translation-filming TV) and they will all find out soon and she's just SO excited...I'm waiting for KARMA to catch up with her and when it does it's going to be explosive...

She back..was a secret location

She and the kids were off on a birthday adventure, and yes they were filming. TLC announced that there will be a special show on mothers in May.

Sorry, but karma is not going to catch up with her. People have been saying that for years, ever since the show was canceled, and it has yet to happen and there is no sign of it happening.

Debbie H said...

Karma catches everyone eventually...Her Karma may not catch up with her til the kids turn 18 in a few years and write a book and tell the world what she's all about, but I have no doubt it IS going to catch her...I just figure the longer it takes Karma to catch her, the worse it's going to be when it finally does...

Suzie O said...

Her kids don't see her like we do and especially boys are very protective of their mothers.

I don't see them writing a tell all book and I'm actually hoping they don't because if they did then that would mean their hearts were full of resentment and anger.

I hope they grow up to be happy and balanced in spite of her. Many people including myself had a miserable childhood and found a way to see the bigger picture and forgive their mother. My childhood makes their world look like Disneyland. I do believe in karma and she will have to pay for the things she did but hopefully it won't include her kids.

Debbie H said...

Well if it's true how they say she treats her kids with throwing away the things their Dad buys them and locking them INSIDE their bedrooms so they can't get out, then I'm not so sure they will all feel so lovey dovey towards her...Having been beaten and abused their entire lives and then finding out they have no money of their own(real money) is probably enough to drive at least one into a book deal down the road...

Karma said...

The kids will be writing books about their life with Kate, for sure. No doubt about it. Mady and Cara will be first, then Colin. Out of eight kids, at least four of them will write their tell-all books. Those books will be best sellers too...just wait and see.

Yes they will be writing best sellers...And I can only hope they will be able to recover some of the money their mother stole from them by doing so...I know I will be first in line to buy anything they write...

Michelle said...

"As usual, I'm the Easter Bunny". Guess what Kate, there is no easter bunny. We all do it!! Poor you...

Xanadu said...

There are some people who go through their entire lives without "karma" catching up to them. I have a feeling that Kate is one such person.

I agree with the person who said that they hope that the kids do not write a book. I'd never buy it. Why should they drag things up and relieve their entire ordeal when the best thing they can do is to move on with their lives? Opening everything up for the public to rubberneck into the past will not serve any purpose at all.

They've been under public scrutiny for so long. Let it go. We don't need a book to see Kate as she is. She puts it out there herself. She is their mother and writing a tell-all book won't solve anything other than to bring up feelings of anger and resentment and cause a rift in the family between their own siblings who may be loyal to their mom and those who aren't...not to mention the alienation it would cause with their own mother and ultimately with their own children who could possibly shun their grandmother. Nobody needs that, and it's just not worth it because the public wants some good reading material.

Moreover, by the time the Gosselins reach the age where writing a book would be an option, how many people would still be interested in this family? I would hope that they would no longer be in the news and that nobody cares.

LeeAnn said...

There is no doubt that Karma will come back to get Kate. As far as the kids writing tell-all books, that will happen too. After all, the kids have seen Kate writing books, and kids learn what they live.

Debbie H said...

I just want to say to the people who think the children will be filled with love for Kate when they get older and would never do anything to have a bad relationship with her.....Children LEARN how to treat their parents by EXAMPLE...And we all know the example Kate has shown her kids how she treats her OWN mother, so why do you think her kids will miraculously treat Kate any better than she has treated her own parents?? I don't share the view that Kate will live happily ever after with 8 kids showing her bounds of love and affection forever more...To think that is naive...There will be books and there will be KARMA...

Suzie O said...

Karma happens to everyone whether it is obvious to outsiders or not. But the kids did not ask for any of this and I am hoping that they will be able to find a way to be happy, secure adults when they grow up.



Mary Bergfeld said...

Debbie, curious to know exactly how you know how Kate treats her parents?
I think is not the correct response. Back up what you say or don't say it. Do her parent's speak with you?

Summer Rain said...

Debbie, even a psychic medium doesn't know how this all will turn out. You may be correct. Then again, you may be far off base. Karma DOES NOT come to everyone. I've seen it happen too many times that people have not gotten their just desserts.

Kate very well may find Karma at her door, or she may live out an entire life just trotting along, doing what she is doing and live without a care in the world. Bottom line is that nobody knows, and to claim that they do is nothing more than wishful thinking.

Debbie H said...

Mary, it is common knowledge how Kate treats her parents and family to anyone that has paid any attention to her over the past 10 years...My information came from her brother, and I consider him reliable..And you have eyes...How many times have YOU seen her or kids on camera with their grandparents??NEVER...Doesn't that speak volumes to you?

Debbie H said...

Summer, I obviously don't KNOW for certain her future anymore than the ones on here saying Karma will NEVER catch up with her...What I do know is human nature...And those kids will be adults soon...5 years for Cara and Maddie...You have seen the attitudes and you know how they have been raised and mistreated..It's only human nature that they will react when they can...May not be a book...may just be interviews or lashing out in some other way..but THAT will be Kate's karma in my humble opinion..

Suzie O said...

We have to remember that what we have seen on t.v. is staged for entertainment purposes and we don't see all of their lives.

Some people might not want to be filmed (I know I wouldn't) but that doesn't mean they don't exist or are not part of her life. Information that we got years ago might not be relevant today.

We know she is desperate to be on television more than ever but we don't really know who is in her life and what her financial situation is.

Sharla said...

None of which means people can't have their own opinions and express them if they wish.
