We will continue as long as Kate is seeking public attention for those who wish to comment.

Has Jon said anything about Kate's disclosure that Colin no longer lives at home and has "undisclosed special needs"?

She's At It Again said...

Hate to say it folks, but Kate and the kids are on the cover of People magazine again. There are currently several articles about them up on the site including one of Kate trying to do damage control and admit she had too many "meltdowns" when the kids were younger, another with Maddy going after Jon, and then a third that mentions Collin doesn't live at home anymore. Apparently he is away getting "help in a program that will help him reach his full potential" in Kate's words. Not sure what the issue is, but she said he has special needs.

And of course that means he isn't on the cover with the family.

One boy gone. Only two more of those nasty icky, unwanted boys she has to find a way to dispose of now. Poor kids!

I guess the money is drying up so she is glad there is yet another family story to exploit, but gee they are very old news. I'm surprised the tabloids are still helping her so much.

Well it has been a long time since I pulled up his site. I see there is almost no activity which is great news. However I just saw the cover of People magazine, Khate and seven kids are on the cover. This despicable mother discloses she has sent Colin away for some kind of treatment. Leave it to Khate to broadcast confidential information in return for a paycheck. I wonder how much People paid for the story.
I knew years ago Colin would be scarred for life. We know his so called mother physically abused him, per her own diary. We all saw the emotional abuse this dear child was subjected to. Who can forget Khate screaming at him and throwing away his lovey.
My thoughts and prayers remain with these unfortunate children.
Please do not buy People magazine or watch any TV show his woman is on.

Oh my god.

Kate Gosselin sent son Collin to live in special needs program

Pray for the Gosselin 8.

Maddy's sticking up for Mommy and saying she think Jon should stop talking about them in the press, but isn't that exactly what Mommy Dearest is doing right now with Colin?? Maddy is Kate's clone and Kate is letting her belittle her own Father just like Kate has been doing for years. I'm so tired of Kate playing the victim...." I'm doing this alone", " I'm a single parent" , blah,blah,blah.....that's what happens when you alienate yourself from every friend and family member you have ever had. Her bitterness and control issues will leave her a very lonely old lady someday!

Came here to say hey I see they're back!

MossHill said...

My heart breaks for Colin. He's sent away, specifically excluded from that 'family' picture, personal and other information splayed across all info sources ...

I hope in some way he can know that there are people in this world who do and will care about and cherish him, and would scoop the little fella up in a nanosecond.

And K8?

I cannot believe that this woman has been able to get away with all she has for so long! My heart breaks for these children and for Jon. To think that sweet Collin has been sent away is just unthinkable. Why does she not let Jon take his son? Because when she saw that he could make a difference in Collin's life she wouldn't be able to stand it? I have written TLC to let them know how sad it is that they have had a part in tearing this family apart. I wish everyone that reads this would. She has been living off her children, to heck with what it cost them! People have always commented that someday these poor kids would need professional help, well, it has begun! God Bless them all and their father! concerned

wow! just wow - SO sad!

Correct me if I'm mistaken, bit didn't Jon say years ago that Collin needs help, while Kate went on about how everything is fine with him? and now we see Collin has been removed from the home....

With eight kids, you'd think former reality TV star Kate Gosselin would be far too occupied to think about being a grandmother one day.

But that's not the case.

"Six of my kids could have babies in the same year – I could essentially have sextuplets all over again," Gosselin, 41, told People magazine.

Gosselin's oldest, a set of twins, are 15 years old. The sextuplets are now 12.

Kate Gosselin Opens Up About Son Collin's 'Special Needs'

Aside from having an even fuller house, Gosselin told People she looks forward to tackling her grandma duties differently than how she handled motherhood.

"I did my uptight parenting thing," she said. "I can't wait to be the grandparent who is older and wiser, and who is able to swoop in and out, and offer advice and be more laid back."

But for now, like any mother, Gosselin's biggest concern is her children's happiness.

"I hope they realize the mistakes I made were because I love them and I was doing the best I could," she said. "I hope they have careers they're passionate about. I hope they marry someone they truly, deeply love." said...

Shame on Kate using the hate for her ex, to turn the kids against their father. I hope Jon keeps reaching out to his children to let them know he's not the terrible person/bad father she's made him out to be.

Sounds like he is being treated for RAD which makes sense as by what we saw on TV Kate never really showed that much attention and affection to him. I would also guess he is also being treated for PTSD from everything that occurred to him. Probably the trauma of being on TV was a significant part of his condition. Poor little guy it seems like he never had a chance.

Oh for Pete's sake! Collin doesn't have "trauma" from being on TV!! What Collin has is an abusive Mom and a stupid, neglectful Father. I don't remember Jon ever saying Collin needed help. But I do remember Kate's diary where she detailed her abuse and she wrote that most of it was directed at Collin, pulling his hair, throwing him in the crib, beating him. Jon did nothing which is just as bad, not stopping the abuse.

I also remember Collin's drooping eyelid. Kate said it could be a sign of neurological problems and took him to a doctor who said he needed to come back for check-ups but he appeared OK. Maybe the doctor was wrong. I also remember Collin being obsessed with the size of objects and putting things inside each other, connecting things, like making a train with toys.... Remember Collin always helped bring in all the outside toys, Kate called him her "Helper Boy". He was very smart. Kate said she thought he would be an engineer.

And if reports are true, it was Kate's abusive treatment of Collin that drove Hannah to stay at Jon's and refuse to come home for several days about a year or so ago. If true, maybe that's why Kate sent him away. Because the kids are now old enough to see her abusive side and didn't like the way she treated Collin.

These treatment places for kids are full of abuse and I feel so, so bad for Collin. CNN did a special on them and in some states (MA for one) they are allowed to shock children. I am not kidding, it is disgusting. Drs can be wrong and these places pry on scared parents at the end of their rope. But sending a child away is not the answer.

I really hope someone can help Collin and find out what is going on. This is a travesty. There are a ton of comments over at People are furious.

"I've always been there for them and I always will be. It's shocking," Gosselin told Entertainment Tonight. Cara and Mady Gosselin discussed their estranged relationship with their father to People

Irish 33 said...

I cannot believe this awful human being posed for people magazine minus the child with problems an then discussing his problems for all of America to see.Talk about anything to stay relevent , boy oh boy Jon was right saying keeping them on TV will affect them long term an lastly how sad is it that the older 2 are turning into foul mouth little know it all divas wannabe stars just like mommy that money mom for all the therapy coming down the road

R said...

Jon isn't perfect- he's made mistakes, I don't even particularly like him, but I feel bad for him.

The kids are lucky to have a father who isn't abusive or mentally ill. One day their dad will be gone... by then (hopefully) Mady will realize she doesn't know it all but it will be too late to patch things up.

Very sad and disturbing about what's happening with Collin. Didn't Kate once criticize the tabloids? Now she's giving away personal details about her kids on them?

On Friday morning (August 26, 2016) the American Sun-Times reported Kate Gosselin and boyfriend, to be shopping for engagement rings.The couple was seen closely eyeing some pricey bling in a couple of major jewelry stores — especially major diamond baubles that could only be described as the kind usually slipped on a woman’s left-hand ring finger.

UPDATE 28/08/2016 : This story seems to be false. (read more)

According to some insiders, they'll soon be engaged.

The newspaper also added that people who claim to be close to the couple are “convinced” an engagement is inevitable. “She's madly in love with him,” says a source. It is believed the relationship is “heating up”.

Rumor Explodes on Twitter

Naturally, the Sun-Times’ article sent Facebook and Twitter into a frenzy. Fans were simultaneously mourning and celebrating the news. “So many people would flip but if the couple at some point announced they were engaged I’d be happy,” tweeted one fan. “They’re so cute!”. Many other fans were crushed because they hoped to marry her...

On Saturday, Kate Gosselin’s rep said “no comment” when asked whether the 41-year-old television host was tying the knot for the second time.

Has the Sun-Times started a crazy false rumor?

All of this makes me wonder what would have happened if they had just had a civil divorce with bird's nest custody. It's like Jon snapped when he lost them. I just can't reconcile Cara's comments with seeing how close they were when all of this started.

MossHill said...

"tvn" : I applaud poor Cara - her response was an immaculate non-answer- thereby removing her from the daddy-bashing. Mady, on the other hand, is just frightening.

JON - keep your mouth shut. Say nothing. Your proverbial stock will rise when you stop playing into the game.

Deb Harrold said...

Telling your children's personal problems to the world is absolutely inexcusable. An abuse of power. Let's just suppose he has an anger problem, and let's suppose in the proper environment he flourishes and does well. Now it is clearly documented for the whole world to see that he is "troubled", how will he ever live it down? Very wrong on Kate's part.
