Heffner Road, check TLC's website. It's true and she confirmed it on Twitter.

wonder if the wicked witch is gonna make her annual trip to the Kentucky Derby to once again find her place with all the beautiful people....desperately tryin to snag a man with money

Debbie H said...

I don't think she's been invited back to the Kentucky Derby since then...As for the rich man, she supposedly has snagged one, unless he was only a rumor to get everyone off track with Steve...Or perhaps she dumped Steve just because someone with more money(although he's supposedly filed bankruptcy?)or at least someone she THOUGHT had more money showed a little bit of interest in her sorry greedy behind...

Irish 33 said...

You might be wrong Debbie the witch has been silent on Twitter for 3 days....possibly en route to the Derby,I'm betting yes

Debbie H said...

Well if she IS at the Derby, it will be the first time in several years...We will all know because she will be bragging at the first notice...That's why I think she's not there...She would have to be bragging about it...Of course she could be going with her "rich" new boyfriend, but that's the only invite she'd be going on in my opinion...

At War Again? Kate Gosselin Tweets & Deletes Bizarre Message About Ex, Friend Of Jon Says ‘She’s Up To No Good’

Debbie H said...

So no pics surfaced of Kate at the Kentucky Derby? I knew she wasn't there...I knew full well THEY didn't invite her and we all know Kate never goes anywhere where SHE has to pay her own way...I mean, why in the world would the Kentucky Derby want Kate Gosselin there? They invited her to be in the parade ONCE and I'm sure like everyone else, ONCE is all it takes to learn your lesson about dealing with Kate and to know you never want to be in her presence again..Right?

Bev said...

Maybe she was at the Dancing With The Stars Anniversary show last Tuesday. They showed two very uncomplimentary clips of Kate when showing previous dancers. One was when she was arguing with Tony in rehearsal and Tony said, "I quit". The other was when they danced and Carrie Ann said, "That was really hard to watch". Whenever I watch the show and see them critiquing the dancers I can still see Kate rolling her eyes at them! She made such a fool of herself by going on that show.

Xanadu said...

Well if she IS at the Derby, it will be the first time in several years...

It hasn't been several years. She missed last year because she said she wanted to be with her kids. She was there the year before that.

My bad...Seems Kate Gosselin did squeeze in an extra year at the Derby I wasn't aware of! Thank God, because that means I must not be keeping up with her as much as I once was...Totally missed it...So she was invited twice and lied about being invited the other years? I do know the woman well enough to know that she won't pass up 2 things...Free trips and publicity...

And weren't THEY all "hot and heavy" as well? I've always felt like the "millionaire" was just a cover up because TLC didn't want a scandal with a married man(Steve)...

says jon sought emergency custody of hannah as she's saying she doesn't want to go back to her mom's because she's cruel to her, we have all seen how she'd different to different kids, hannah does seem more sensitive but i'm surprised it's her as she always seemed to be kate's favorite when she was younger since she was always the 'little mom', i think she's worst to collin but i think collin would never stand up for himself & say it, problem for Kate is now the kids are getting old enough that the courts will pay more attention to what they say and what they want as far as custody goes

Heffner Road I think the "new boyfriend" story is as phony as Kate is...Just a ruse TLC cooked up to cover up Steve and Kate...Notice how she conveniently got a "new" boyfriend right after Kenya Moore came out saying she knew they shared the same room while filming?

Xanadu said...

It was Hannah, not Leah, who didn't want to go home to Kate.

Kenya made that allegation six months ago (about Kate and Steve sharing the hotel room). Did she recently say something about it again?

Debbie H said...

Xanadu, I don't know if Kenya has said something recently or not...It doesn't matter...TLC brought in the new boyfriend back when she did say something the first time...It was at that point they started damage control...Part of which was cutting
Steve out of all the episodes that he was filmed in for the last set of episodes...She reportedly went to Mexico with Steve back in March to celebrate her birthday, and once this came out on the gossip sites, conveniently she had a "date" and was seen out with THIS new man...LOL..It's so obvious what they are doing that it's actually laughable..They think we are all fools...

Heffner Road said...



Kate Gosselin doesn’t seem to be stressing an upcoming family court hearing with ex-husband Jon over custody of their daughter Hannah.

Insiders tell InTouch that despite a hearing on the court docket next month over who will take care of the 11-year-old, Kate’s recent parenting behavior has been lethargic, to say the least.

Kate “took off for four days last week” and “left the kids with the nanny,” the insider said, citing a rule Kate broke in her travels abroad.

PHOTOS: Kate Gosselin Through The Years

“Kate is supposed to give Jon first right of refusal to take care of the kids when she goes away,” the insider said. “And she didn’t.”

But it wasn’t just Jon whose feathers were ruffled due to Kate’s self-centered antics.

“The kids told Jon that they didn’t know where she went,” the insider said, “and had no way to reach her because she doesn’t give them her cell number.”

PHOTOS: Kate Gosselin’s 21 Monster Mom Moments

Her rationale? The insider said that Kate, who’s been dating wealthy businessman Jeff Prescott, doesn’t trust her kids with her number!

“Kate thinks if she gives it to them, someone else will get a hold of it,” the insider said, “and she doesn’t want random people calling.”

Jon’s attorney Kristen Doleva-Lecher vowed to the magazine that the father-of-eight has vowed to “fight for” the kids, and that his “priority is what is best for” them.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the legal skirmish between Kate, 40, and Jon, 38, exploded April 23 after Jon took emergency custody of daughter Hannah, citing “cruelty” on Kate’s part in the form of alleged spankings and other damaging tidbits.

Debbie H said...

WOW! Won't even give her kids her cell phone number to reach her...Sounds like mother of the year to me...NOT..The people who continue to sing Kate's praises almost drive me to violence, myself...LOL..How in the world can they not get it? It's amazing the one or two "fans" on every comment board, when an article about Kate pops up, that think she's such a wonderful mother...They must be purely ignorant about all the negatives in her parenting history..There's no other explanation..

Daydream Believer said...

.She reportedly went to Mexico with Steve back in March to celebrate her birthday, and once this came out on the gossip sites, conveniently she had a "date" and was seen out with THIS new man.

====

They waited two months after the March trip to trot out the new date. I wonder why it took them so long.

Debbie H said...

Probably to coincide with the show?? Who knows why they trot him out time to time but he got trotted out about 6 or 8 months ago for something, too...I don't remember why they needed him for that...but you have to admit NONE of them involved are above scheming and lying...They just need to be done with her...Kids are getting too old to be entertaining and cute...

Heffner Road said...

FROM RADARONLINE
Kate Gosselin has been accused of spanking and berating her eight famous children, but her millionaire boyfriend, entrepreneur Jeff Prescott, has his own history of poor parenting claims.

The Dreamstime co-founder’s ex-wife Michelle Jones accused the 51-year-old of neglecting their three children during the couple’s nasty 2006 divorce, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal.

In Massachusetts court documents obtained by Radar, the homemaker claimed her husband of nearly 20 years has had “infrequent” visits with Ashley, Brooke, and Connor, who were then 19, 14 and 10 respectively.

READ THE SHOCKING COURT DOCUMENTS

Since their separation five months prior, “he has had Connor two times overnight,” she stated in the affidavit. “He has not taken the girls at all overnight.”

She also alleged the CEO would frequently skip town “on business and pleasure,” without giving his estranged wife or their children, one of whom is disabled, any notice.

“There have been times when he has not answered his cell phone for days,” Jones claimed.

PHOTOS: Kate Gosselin Through The Years

When Prescott was in contact with the children, Jones said, he manipulated them into taking his side in the bitter split.

In a February 15, 2006 email presented to the court, Prescott told young daughters Ashley and Brooke “I…want to make it very clear that I have given your Mom every chance to try and settle things in a way that would not require all that is about to transpire. Again, she has chosen this battle for reasons I cannot understand.”

“We will spend a ton of money on lawyers. Money that I would have rather seen go to you guys or your Mother but she sees things differently,” he continued.

PHOTOS: Mommy, Dearest! Kate Gosselin’s 21 Monster Mom Moments Exposed!

Later that week, after Jones sought a restraining order against Prescott for “jealous” behavior, she claimed the father of three left his teen daughter Ashley upset.

“He told her that all sorts of terrible thing were going to happen if I obtained a restraining order such as ‘loss of our home,'” she alleged. “He told her that she may ‘not be able to go to college.’ He told her we may go ‘bankrupt.'”

Nine years after the messy divorce, Prescott exclusively tells Radar that he and his ex now “get along great.”

“As for the divorce issues, most of them do not carry any merit,” he explains. “We went through some tough times that were short lived. Michelle and I get along great and have for a long time. Our children are great kids with awesome values as a result of having a good mother and a caring, loving father.”

Jones even told Radar she gives Prescott and Gosselin her blessing as the relationship grows more serious.

“He deserves happiness,” she says.

Debbie H said...

Well, if they were actually dating, this would surely be something they have in common...Both are self centered arrogant people who make poor parents...But we all know it's only for show anyway, to keep another TLC scandal at bay...

The ring is not on her ring/engagement finger. It's on her right hand. Kate tweeted that she liked the ring and bought it for herself for her birthday in March.

There is a ring on the ring finger of both hands...However, the one on her LEFT hand ring finger(the one holding the sharpie) is quite a bit larger than the one on her right hand and I don't recall seeing the ring on her left hand before...But it is possible she decided to buy that with the kids money for her birthday...I mean, she does buy anything else she wants with THEIR money, so it's certainly a possibility!

Fyi: I’m not engaged-not even dating any1.Loved the ring so I put it on myself 4 my bday-Had 2have something abt that # to make me smile #40

Debbie H said...

You assume because Kate says she bought it for herself and it's not an engagement ring, that she's telling the truth?? Nah, never known Kate to tell a LIE about anything, right??? LOL...I'm just saying it may or may not be, but the one thing I know is that Kate is not above lying...

Daydream Believer said...

I believe, despite Kate's fondness for lying, that she did buy it for herself. Had she "landed" a millionaire, I don't doubt for a minute that she would be giddy with excitement and would have to announce it to her fans on Twitter. Why would she be reluctant to share that good news? Eventually she wouldn't be able to keep it a secret and she knows it.

A Former Fan said...

I was in Lancaster, PA last weekend for a wedding. When in the Doubletree Hotel for breakfast the next morning, our waitress complained that it had been a really busy weekend, which included a "Kate Plus 8" taping. The waitress made it very clear that no one in the area likes her and is anyone actually even watching this garbage.

FROM RADARONLINE



Is Kate Gosselin a two-timer?

The Kate Plus 8 star, 40, was recently spotted out on a “touchy feely” dinner date with millionaire boyfriend Jeff Prescott— but RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal that she was secretly cozying up to an old flame last weekend!

A source tells Radar that Gosselin and her longtime rumored love, family bodyguard Steve Neild, “looked like a couple” as they dined at the Double Tree Hilton in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, on June 6.

PHOTOS: Kate Gosselin’s 21 Monster Mom Moments

Gosselin and Neild shared breakfast with the TLC reality star’s eight kids— 14-year-old twins Mady and Cara and 11-year-old sextuplets Aaden, Collin, Joel, Leah, Alexis and Hannah— at the hotel’s restaurant, the onlooker reveals.

“Steve was very hands on with the kids,” the eyewitness says. “He looked like he was their dad.”

While snapping photos, the blond beauty and her bodyguard moved closer.

PHOTOS: Kate Gosselin Through The Years

“They were smiling and laughing together,” the onlooker recalls. “He even put his hand on her back while they were looking at the pictures.”

“Kate looked tired, but very happy.”

As Radar exclusively reported, Gosselin and Neild vacationed in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, for her birthday in March.

Rumors about their alleged romance began swirling soon after Gosselin split from ex-husband Jon, 38, in 2009.

Exclusives Kate Gosselin

Debbie H said...

No Kate Gosselin is NOT a TWO TIMER...In order to be one, she would have to be having a relationship with TWO men...Since her only relationship has been with Steve, she is not a two timer...What she is, is lying and deceitful to try to COVER UP her relationship with a MARRIED man by being seen with the TLC "millionaire" PLANT...So she may be a homewrecker, but she's NOT a TWO TIMER!

Tea For Two said...

No Kate Gosselin is NOT a TWO TIMER...In order to be one, she would have to be having a relationship with TWO men...Since her only relationship has been with Steve, she is not a two timer..

&&&&&

How do you figure? Of course she is! You commented that she is deceitful.

Definition of two-timer:
1. To be unfaithful to (a spouse or lover).
2. To deceive; double-cross.

If Steve is her lover and she's seeing Jeff (she had a date or dates with him), she's two-timing Steve. If she's having a relationship with Jeff, then she's double-crossing Steve if he's been her lover. Therefore, she's a two-timer.

Summer Rain said...

Of course she's dating the Prescott fellow. There were photos of them together. If there were no "relationship," then why would his former wife comment on it? If you believe that she and Steve have been an item, and there is a relationship with Jeff, then yes, she's a two timer!

Debbie H said...

Kate is being deceitful to US by lying to us...By trying to throw us off the track of Steve...Steve is her only lover and he's married...TLC is trying to avoid a scandal by introducing the new "plant" as her boyfriend...I see it's at least working with two people...LOL...However, I believe there is only one relationship Kate is in and has been in and that is with the married Steve...Of course the other ones wife commented on how wonderful everything is...I imagine TLC paid them both handsomely for their "work"...

Anonymous said...


Well this is interesting! Not only did Kate's
camera crew leave her for the Duggars...But now her lover Steve Neilson is security for The Duggars too! Poor Steve, must hate all the mean, lying scandals he has to protect on TLC!

Debbie H said...

Steve hasn't "worked" for Kate for years...He's only with her on a PERSONAL level...I guess he still has to work for a living...LOL

Freeloader said...

So Steve isn't being paid for his trips and accompanying Kate for years? Wow. What a guy. Doing all that traveling, road managing for free. I wonder how his wife feels about that, with no paycheck coming in.

Anonymous said...

I wonder how his wife feels about him having an affair with Kate all these years? Not saying he hasn't been working somewhere, but I am pretty sure TLC doesn't pay him to share a hotel room with Kate or go on a vacation with Kate to Mexico. When he WAS her bodyguard he was paid. BUT he hasn't been a bodyguard for HER for years.

Candace said...

When is the court date for custody to occur in June?

Debbie H said...

I googled everything to try to find the actual date, but all I could come across was the date set sometime in June...So being as there are only 8 business days left of June, it has to happen soon, right? Unless Kate pulled strings to get it postponed or something, which wouldn't surprise me at all...

Heffner Road fm Florida said...

Ok folks...after two days of marathon reruns of the Kate, anyone know what the ratings were, and how much money did she get paid?

Sharla said...

The three hour retrospective/rehash did terribly. It didn't even make the top 100 cable shows of the day. The 40th birthday did not do well and was about 100th of the cable shows for the day with 1.077 M viewers and a .3 rating. That's in cancellation range depending on the economics.

Xanadu said...

Steve hasn't "worked" for Kate for years...He's only with her on a PERSONAL level...I guess he still has to work for a living...LOL

----

He was with her recently at the TLC-sponsored block party in Philadelphia, so he is still working for TLC on a business level. It's not just personal.

If they both are under contract with TLC, and she is filming, then yes, TLC would pay for him to accompany her. He was recently seen with Josh Duggar, so he is still being employed by TLC. He is not going to go with Kate and the kids on a trip without being compensated by TLC. I would imagine that payment terms/agreement is negotiated and included in the contracts.

cali-girl said...

I dvr'd the 40th b'day show and just finished watching it.

In no particular order, here are my comments/observations:

1. Kate's NEW BFF's: Deanna, her makeup artist for 8(?)years and Andrea, whom she "knew before she[Andrea] was born". Where's longtime bestest bestest bestest BFF and travel companion, Jamie?

2. Kate opening and looking into fridge with that bird on her shoulder. The bird has always intrigued me--how unsanitary with it flying around the kitchen, near food, etc. Birds poop. Without warning.

3. One of the "little" girls commented in the confessioanl "Mommy never spends time with us" and Maddie said something like "She doesn't look 40,and she knows it, so she should just shut up and get over it."

4. Maddie ALWAYS does 95% of the talking when she and Cara are being interviewed together. And she is always a supercilious brat. She said the cakes kids decorated for Kate in Mexico "looked like crap". (They were cute, actually.) Ironically Kate stated on this show that one of her goals for the future would be that her kids would be each others' best friends. Right.

5. Could Kate puh-leeze stop saying "me and my kids" as in me and my kids went to Mexico. O/T Actually everyone on the Bachelor and Real Housewives' shows needs to stop saying ungrammatical things like this immediately as well. It makes my ears bleed.

6. Kate had a bubblegum martini, and commented that her kids all know she loves bubblegum. Well, NOT when Aunt Jodi gave them some gum when the sextuplets were younger. Kate was FURIOUS! And Collin's favorite teddy bear had to be THROWN AWAY because it had gum on it. He was so upset.

7. Speaking of Collin, Kate is really mean and emotionally (as well as sometimes physically*) abusive to him. All the kids spent their 200 pesos on presents for Kate at the market. Some of the kids bargained the price down, most especially Collin, since the original price for a mother bear and her cub was 500+ pesos. And he really really wanted it for Kate, thanking the man over and over again for coming down on the price.

Kate really ooohed and aaahed over the presents (and even kissed one of the presents) before, and after, Collin's (including a box made from a turtle), but when she opened Collin's, she gave him a What the H... look, and said "Oh...it's a mommy and a baby bear." Collin replied, "It's supposed to be me and you." [Me: How sweet is that?] and Kate said, "Where's everybody else?" In her talking head, she said "Collin's was a little bit off the wall. I don't know where the 7 other cubs were." Even though she had earier commented at her girls' night out bday dinner with only Deanna "Sometimes when I hang out with Deanna, I'm able to forget I have 8 kids." Who says that??? According to her book title years ago, they were "Multiple Blessings."

Just imagine getting a free trip to a beautiful resort in Mexico, going to the Mayan Ruins, (I still think the kids have no idea what they are, but they do have Kate-taken pix of them to show in class next year to prove they were there!)getting paid to be filmed taking said free trip, and then also being paid because you are listed as the "producer" of the show. All of them, Kate plus the 8, seem incredibly ungrateful and unappreciative to me.

* Re physically abusive: I still remember, several years ago, on their double decker bus ride through NYC, Kate roughly SHOVING a little Collin down against the seat because he dared to ask for a different kind of ice cream cone.

Rant completed.

Debbie H said...

Xanadu, do you honestly believe he is only with Kate in a 'professional" capacity? That would certainly explain why you think the man can't be with his girlfriend without being paid...

"He is not going to go with Kate and the kids on a trip without being compensated by TLC. I would imagine that payment terms/agreement is negotiated and included in the contracts."

Debbie H said...

Cali girl, she IS unappreciative...She has always felt entitled to the best things and to get them for FREE...After all, she had multiples for the sole purpose of making money off them, so of course she's going to get the most bang for it she can...And hopefully with the ratings falling off TLC will begin to get the message...I think the Duggars, even with all their issues have over twice the audience of Kate...So perhaps this thing will slowly wind down...Kids are only getting older by the minute and they are so boring to watch...Not like the cute little babies they were...We can all stay home and watch our OWN teenagers because they are all basically alike, right? Kids are growing up and it's just going to Kate and Steve soon, so she's not going to have the gravy train for much longer anyway even if they DID keep the show on a few more years...She will never make the money she made back several years ago when she was working the babies and twins to death...And besides, the older they get the more they can TALK and let the world know the ogre Kate is, so that message will be getting out the next few years as well...We already see the beginnings of it with the one that wanted to stay with Jon because of how Kate was treating her...So sad about Collin...Always getting his chops busted by his mom...Heartbreaking...glad I didn't watch it...I didn't even tape it this time because I totally don't even care to watch...And I'm sure droves of people are starting to feel more like me than ever...

Sweet Melissa said...

I feel terrible that the children have been put through the TV media squeeze all to line her pockets. After watching the last episode I truly feel like the entire family needs intense behavior and play therapy to help them along. I see so much anger in the twins that is beyond normal teenage stuff. The kids are treating her the only way they have been taught to, with belittling and yelling.
