Kate to leave the kids for at least the next four days

After a brief visit with the kids after being in Los Angeles and New York City for two weeks, Kate is back on the road again tomorrow. Reports her enabler ...er, I mean, her stylist, Ted Gibson, who gave her $7,000 extensions earlier this year, Kate is coming back to New York on Wednesday and Thursday for a 2-day hair re-do in preparation for DWTS. What's $7,000? Tear 'em out!

The extensions will come out on Wednesday, and new ones will be put in on Thursday, "three different shades of blonde--a caramel, a beige blond and a little bit of a lighter blonde." On Friday, she is slated to co-host The View. On Saturday, she will speak at the Women's Expo in South Bend, Indiana.

I really want to strangle this woman. Discuss.

SEVEN GRAND in hair extensions and they're coming out. Brand new ones going in. Kids left back at home while she indulges this celebrity fantasy lifestyle. And all thanks to those very kids who got her here. Gaaa!

I am curious as to whether she actually paid $7000 or they were worth $7000. This stylist seems to get an awful lot of publicity and he is always pitching his shampoos and products in interviews. I wonder if she is his "spokesperson."

It'll be at least three days...didn't they take like 24 hours to put in??? And, isn't she going to be on the view too?

Administrator said...

Yes she's supposed to cohost Friday, I added that information to the post.

And yet the sheeple bleat on about Kate, Uber-mother.
Baaaaaa.....

Didn't someone say the kids were on Spring Break? She was with them all of four days after being gone 2 weeks, now she's leaving them again. And they're not even in school they're on break!

Administrator said...

I just confirmed on the kids' school web site that the children are on Spring break until the 15th. So Kate is leaving them when they are home all day.

For their privacy though I won't post the name of the school.

I say, let Kate act like a Diva ALL-SHE-WANTS.
Let Kate's true narcissistic self come out for all her fans to see.
The "Kate Gosselin" brand that she created with TLC is a complete lie. Sooner or later Kate's fan base will realize they have been lied too.
Kate is getting cocky and she will "over-step" her carefully crafted super-mom image.

How horrible for these kids to be stuck at home with nannies during their Spring Break. I can only imagine how Kate has repeatedly explained to them why this is necessary because she has to be gone working so hard (insert laugh here) to support them, and that daddy isn't allowed to take them anywhere.

She's a real gem, isn't she?

Administrator said...

I hope they do something lovely with Jon over their break. Actually I hope they just stay home with him and play in the backyard away from cameras. Kids usually just want to hang out at home, they are not complicated.

I agree with Lauren. Kate the diva is beginning to emerge and become apparent to the general public. This DWTS stint could be her downfall no matter where she finishes because so many who barely knew her before are starting to question how "reality mother of the year" can be gone so much when she has eight children at home. Trying to sell her based on the mom angle is a big catch 22.

Access Hollywood has some good clips of interviews with the different dancers. I was impressed with Shannen Doherty who has a terrible fear of performing in front of a live audience. She accepted the offer from DWTS for her dad who suffered a massive stroke last December and lost his speech and mobility. She said it's giving him a purpose and strength to go on. He wants to watch his daughter dance.

Hi all,

TMZ is reporting that Corey Haim is dead, an apparent drug overdose.

I find it very disturbing that you would go to the actual school website that these children attend. That is completely offbase.

Administrator said...

What is disturbing about going to a school web site? The kids aren't on the web site. The web site has right in the sidebar that the students are on Spring Break. That's important information since Kate is leaving them, again.

It's disturbing to stalk the kids at their actual school, absolutely. Which is why I won't permit anyone to post the name of their school (even though you can find it out there easily--it's on Wikipedia). But to confirm their schedule to prove their mom is leaving them when they are HOME ALL WEEK is simply truth-finding.

"Trying to sell her based on the mom angle is a big catch 22."

I hope you are right, I hope people will see her for who she really is and she will be exposed as a mom who is never with her kids and always chasing her own fame and fortune elsewhere.

What worries me is I knew, as did some others, that Kate was like this ages ago. She always left the kids for speaking engagements and book tours, and this all started years ago. Leaving the kids is nothing new. If the general public chose to ignore this fact then, won't they just ignore it again?

itsaboutthekids said...

I hear ya Admin. but I think the difference now is people who could care less about Kate and her books and speaking engagements are hearing about her for the first time. They might have a vague knowledge of the situation but every time Kate goes out and leaves the kids at home, and she, a nobody, invades people's TV viewing, she only gains more and more critics. The only people glad to see her on DWTS are those who were already fans. I've read many, many comments that say I don't know much about her, but please go away and take care of your kids. We want stars and you're ruining our show. Just the impression I'm getting.

Now, for info on Kate the mom who only does things that will make her kids proud:

Preesi has the covers of this weeks tabloid magazines posted. Here are some of the titles. Kate has the cover of People Mag.:

Us Weekly - "Kate Gosselin Fame Over Family"

Star Magazine - "Cougar Kate's Hot Date - Her Sexy Night with Married Man!"

In Touch Weekly - "Kate Fame Over Family!"

People Magazine - "Why Can't A Mom Have Fun?" " The Dancing with the Stars newcomer insists she can balance fame and family. 'You say I'm a bad mom, it destroys me'


Do you think she'll turn all the magazines over when she takes the kids to the store. Sorry, but Kate is just pathetic.

Anonymous said...

The People cover is ridiculous! Did you see the picture of her and Tony? Almost like they are a couple. Gag... When will the 15 minutes end already?

You'd probably be surprised by how many people have only recently heard of Kate just because of the tabloids during the separation/divorce mess. The majority of that press was so skewed against Jon, that I'm sure they're thinking she's the poor jilted single mom and will back her without knowing what a true bitch she is.

itsaboutthekids said...

That's possible, but I think in general the public "wants what they pay for" so to speak. Somebody with something going on. Kate has 8 kids, no talent, no skills, no fame in the family background, a fairly unlikeable disposition etc. etc. Right now she's floating on a TLC designed bubble and people might pity her at first if they've read tabloids, but really, the new stories coming out aren't about Jon but about Kate and her new "career" as a fame monger. That has nothing to do with being an on-site mom to her 8 kids who are dealing with the divorce of their mom and dad.

It might take some time but I have hopes that the bubble will burst someday soon. Kate has nothing to offer, not even an endearing personality. That's why it's so important to keep the pressure on when it comes to the kids because she's sure to use them again if she thinks they will keep her in the spotlight even a few minutes longer.

Yeah? Tell that to Linda on Baby Mama's site, who called the school to find out about the tuition.
And she's a "fan."

Leaving the kids is nothing new, but the divorce and her claim to being "a single mom" IS new, even though we know differently (that Jon is also raising these kids). If she's a single mom as she claims to be, how can she justify being the world's greatest mom and still being away from home so much? Of course the argument is money and setting the example for your kids, but at some point you have to visit your kids and pretend to like them. IMO, Kate is insulting the intelligence of many, many moms in pretending she can "do it all". NO, she can't, nor can anyone. You have to set your priorities and Kate has chosen fame as hers. Even the tabloids say so. Ah, the irony of it all. :0)

What is wrong about going to a school's website. Nothing. What is wrong is Kate advertising where the kid's school bus picks them up, and at what time. Any kook could go there and then follow the school bus to the school. It is Kate that is letting the entire world know where, where, and how her kids get to school and where the school is. And isn't the name of the school on the school bus. There are a ton of photos (ROL) of the kids being picked up from the school bus...thanks to Kate.

Administrator said...

Let's think about how we got here in the first place, hmmm. Let's see, KATE and JON signed up for a documentary on their ONE YEAR OLDS. That was exposed to the WORLD. KATE AND JON then signed up to make more than 100 episodes of their very, very young children, also broadcast around the world. When it got out of hand and Jon even talked about being worried about PEDIPHILES they STILL refused to turn the cameras off. When the cameras finally came off, they still continued to parade the kids in front of the paparazzi. Don't blame people who turn on their TVs and happen to see eight kids completely exploited. This is their parents' fault. These are their children and their responsibility to protect, and they failed them, massively.
