Kate goes shopping by herself

Kate was spotted out alone Saturday shopping at Dick's, Old Navy, and Ann Taylor. We love her modest, comfy-looking outfit (sans heals), as well as the way she is throwing down cash at reasonably priced stores, especially Old Navy, which has some great deals right now. Was Jon with the kids on this day too? Could be, since he was spotted Sunday playing outside with them.

Still, who is notifying the paps to come to Reading, PA? Also, I live only 40 mins from Reading - it was cold here! Again, no coat so she can give the paps a shot as uncovered as possible? She makes Heidi Montag look like a shrinking violet.

She's wearing a jacket in some of the pics, so at some point she deliberately took it off and left it in the car.

marnie said...

I see the jacket - however that seems to be a light jacket, not even zipped up. My son and I were out yesterday bundled up - it was 40, tops. Whatever gets her the most attention.

I bet she is concerned about how much "weight" a jacket would add to her in a picture. My winter jacket is really bulky and I look 10-15 lbs. heavier in it if photographed. So that is my guess as to why she leaves it off, so that she can look slim in photos. That is the same reason, I think, for the high heels.

Yes, the heels and no jacket are so she can look slimmer in pics--also, to show off the bustline--she obviously has had either augmentation or she using those "chicken cutlet" things. Her chest is bigger than it was 2 years ago on the show.

Irene said...

I guess Kate thinks if she is photographed enough her movie deal will come or cartoon character voice. You know it is just perfectly natural that that will be her next step. Directors must just be waiting in line to book her.

It's obvious she cannot style that weave on her own.

Irene said...

It looks like straw or yarn.

Caught off guard, she just looks so angry and hard here. It would be nice if she liked her life a little better. I can't imagine being a 5 yr old and getting a look like that from my mom. makes me shudder.

Maybe she's so miserable because she finally realizes what she's done to her family.I really believe in a couple of years Jon is going to be in much better shape than Katie Irene.She will not have anything she wants and will regret what she threw away,but it will be way too late by then.She could have had a nice life and family and now she will be just another has been,never was.She better hope when she leaves the kids alone for her trips theres not an emergency that needs her while she's gone.She will never live it down.I've always believed that God gets even for those of us that can't.

Didn't know where to put this but I thought it was an interesting comparison. I watched Nadya (another story) and Danielle Steele on The View this morning and was so impressed with DS.

Kate, take note: Danielle Steele, author of 107 books, has nine children. I guess anything is possible if you want it bad enough, including staying home with your kids and being there for them instead of traveling the country on book tours.

A quote from her personal blog:

"I love writing, and enjoy my work a lot, which is a blessing. I kept it away from my children when they were young, because I didn’t want my work interfering with their life, and particularly my fame, once I got famous. I never did interviews, publicity, or book tours, and kept a very low profile. I still do! My children are very supportive of me. I hate doing TV appearances, and when I do them, one or several of my kids usually come with me to give me moral support. Only a few of them read my books, some of my kids have never read any. But even those who haven’t read my books are very supportive of my work."

itsaboutthekids,
LOL! Why'd you put this all the way back here!?!? lol. I think this is a great comment! I love how it just shatters the opinions that Kate MUST do book tours for her books. So DS never did book tours even when she was just starting out... and she never did them once she was huge. All because she didn't want her "fame" to interfere with her children's lives. I think that's awesome of her.

itsaboutthekids said...

Yes, I love Danielle Steele books anyway but this makes me want to read and buy even more. Her personal bio is at this site and well worth reading. What a breath of fresh air!

Irene said...

I agree with Schmecky girl itsaboutthekids that is a great testimony of Danielle Steele.

It does seem sometimes Kate wants all this so desperately. She is trying to make something happen instead of using that faith she says she has to let things happen.

That brightened my day. Can I post that on Z on TV itsaboutthekids? or would you like to?

itsaboutthekids said...

Hi, Irene, I just did post it over there under the most current Kate blog. It was the one where you were the last poster.

I'm glad it made you feel better. Trying to get in the heads of some of these people and express a logical viewpoint is mind numbing. A break and a deep breath can help. Of course you do know Kate followers will insist she is very special so it's necessary for her to have special rules. :)

itsaboutthekids said...

Kate has never been one to "let" things happen. It seems she has always been one to "make" things happen and only to her satisfication, beginning with making her brother take the blame for her as children. Kate is a divorced mom of eight children. No more and no less. She needs to be what she is, but because of who she is internally, that's not going to happen. TLC is totally taking advantage of her and whether she sees it or not, she's letting them. Yes, Jon is also responsible because he is an adult, but I also think she's been taking him for a ride all along and now he's got himself backed in this TLC corner or misery. My theory in a nutshell. lol

itsaboutthekids said...

that is "corner of misery" :)

Irene said...

Is it that Kate gets special rules, cuz she's a rule following contract honorer you know, or is it that she is trying to insist on making the rules as she goes? :-)

Just like this picture here on the post. This woman really does not look a day happier to me. But, all the rhetoric is she is so thrilled.

Sorry I did not see the post on Z.

itsaboutthekids said...

No problem on posting a Z's. I don't think mine was there when you asked.

Kate definitely insists on her own rules but she's also very good at letting people think she's following theirs. I predict one humongous (is that a word :)explosion when her rules and TLC rules collide. Or one big meltdown. She cannot control everything forever and something has to give somewhere.

I posted this on Z's too but thought you might like to read it since you mentioned DWTS earlier:
Dancing With the Stars' casting rumors include Kate Gosselin, Pam Anderson, Evan Lysacek

That's a very nice article about Danielle Steele. I have heard lots of good things about her. I actually went to school with one of her daughters, although I never knew her. I knew people who did who said nice things about her.
