Tony swings by in his Porsche, brings coffee


Tony brought over coffee Sunday afternoon to rehearsals with Kate. Maybe the sweet Porsche rental he's driving around is compensation?

Kate Gosselin's attitude roils 'Dancing'

Kate Gosselin is being a "total diva" on the set of "Dancing With the Stars" -- snubbing other contestants and behaving frostily to crew members, sources tell Page Six. The recently divorced mom of eight has been rehearsing for the ABC show, which starts its new season March 22. Her icy behavior also persuaded Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir to pull out of talks about being on the show because he didn't want to work alongside Gosselin. A "DWTS" source said, "Kate doesn't want anything to do with other contestants . . . While there's a lot of camaraderie among the crew and other stars including Pamela Anderson, Kate has set herself apart . . . She wants to be queen bee." Gosselin's rep didn't get back to us. A show source said, "She's been rehearsing in Pennsylvania to be near her kids. For the short time she was in LA, she and the cast got along great."

Page six, such a reputable source. The contestants have been practicing on their own and are not expected to be around one another until next week when the show is live.

Hey administrator.

Trying to track down a rumor. Rumor is Kate is going to get a heftier payday around $450,000 if she wins. Have you heard the rumor? It is on gather.com.

I thought Kate said she was going to be practicing dancing with Tony while the kids were in school and asleep. She's been practicing with him during the day a few times now while she was home with the kids.

It's just funny because she went out of her way to make it look like the practicing won't take time away from her children. She said she'd be dancing from midnight to 3am, etc but the pics we see prove otherwise.

Anonymous said...

Yes, the truth about Gosselin-spin-o-ramas. I wonder if she keeps track of the lies and inconsistencies.

~IRENE~

Diane said...

Well, Irene, I suspect it must take a lot out of Kate trying to remember everything.....like the kids names, much less what she claims she wrote in her book.

And, I imagine, Kate made friends with all the other dancers when they went out together to celebrate being cast on DWTS? right:)

Nora said...

Wow! ROL can actually see them dancing? How does everyone know that they have been practicing during the day while she was home with the kids? Can you see through the walls? Maybe Tony just arrived a little early. As for the DWTS "diva" articles, I will believe it when there is a name attached!!!

itsaboutthekids said...

From the NY Times.com, an interesting article about David Zaslav, chief executive of Discovery, discussing the successes of cable TV.

The article's quite interesting but so too is the photo of Zaslav and Kate Gosselin. Below is a beginning paragraph with a link to the rest. It looks like the same dress Kate was wearing at the DWTS announcement party, but I could be wrong. hmmm....it's always good to know the head honcho, isn't it?

(Those of you who trust no sources or anyone's opinion can just skip over this)

A Cable Power’s Global Reach
By BRIAN STELTER
Published: March 14, 2010

That is a big endorsement of Discovery, especially considering that it is just one-ninth the size of Mr. Murdoch’s company, the News Corporation. It is a testament to the fact that Discovery, the owner of 13 cable channels in the United States, has become a favorite on Wall Street, and its chief executive, David Zaslav, has become the subject of envy in the television industry.

Hi SchmeckyGirl,
I think Kate has proven herself over and over again that her words seldom coincide with her actions. If they do, who's going to believe her? You know, the boy who cried wolf and all. I guess her fans believe and defend her, I'm just not sure why.

Anonymous said...

It is always good to know your boss! As for the dress, it is the same one as she wore to the DWTS announcement party. She does know how to stretch a buck and that is one way!

SchmeckyGirl said...

Nora, there were other pics of the kids outside with the nanny while Kate was inside with Tony.

SchmeckyGirl said...

I think that pic with Kate and the Discovery guy Zaslav was taken the same night Kate went to the premiere with Tony. It was a special or something called Life and it was done by Discovery.

itsaboutthekids said...

"As for the dress, it is the same one as she wore to the DWTS announcement party. She does know how to stretch a buck and that is one way!"

Or the picture was taken at that party...

itsaboutthekids said...

Oh, yes, Schmecky. I remember that now, too. Kate wore a different dress to the DWTS announcement party.

Administrator said...

Where are the pics of the kids playing with the nanny while Kate rehearses? Haven't been able to find those. Maybe Kate did a swiffer of them since that doesn't fit in with her lies.

I didn't post the Kate is a diva story because it smelled bad, again. Kate really shouldn't be spending too much time with her castmates yet, as someone else pointed out. They are all busy rehearsing on their own. I don't even know if she's been on the set yet, I doubt they've filmed any rehearsals just yet. I think she's a diva, I just don't believe that particular story.

Administrator said...

Good article about Discovery. What really isn't pointed out as much is it should be is for every million Kate and Jon made, Discovery made ten. They made it off the backs of those kids too and I hold them just as responsible.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Certainly sources have to be considered. But let's face it, this isn't the first time Kate has been accused of being a Diva. The Stars & Stripes benefit and The Today Show staff to name a couple.

This story might come from the NY Post but it's being picked up by blogs and tabloids all over the internet and being repeated as if true. I've seen it in the huffington post, USA Today and MyFoxPhilly among others. People are reading it, and it's not necessarily an unbelievable story after Kate's past alleged incidents. Of course, it could be that Kate and her PR team are using the DIVA image to replace the SUPER MOMMY title. Are we seeing a shift into a different direction for selling this little bombshell?

Anonymous said...

That is a good article about Discovery. I was thinking when reading it that they are in essence saying they used cheap labor to get their company where they are.

My thing with that is that children are filmed for TLC with no contract, no representation and no pay. I think that is ashame.

Lauren said...

Wait, what?
So the paps are so fascinated with Kate that they are hanging out on a cold Sunday morning in front of Kate's house to photograph Tony D. bringing her some Starbucks!!!! Think about it.

It's Kate's photographer taking these pictures. I call it fake, BS on Kate and her PR team.

I wonder if Tony knows???

Anonymous said...

Nora, Tony is on twitter.

He tweets when he leaves to go to Kate's and he tweeted when they were finished. He thanked the Tea company that sent him tea. He was having apple pie tea after their long day of practice yesterday. Oh by the way, ROL only posts what Kate's PR people tell them.

itsaboutthekids said...

Yes, Irene, it is a shame. It's child labor without legal representation. Parents who are willing to sacrifice their children's childhood and who ask them to monetarily support themselves through reality programming, I believe are already suspect in their motives.

Laws should be in place to protect the minors. Isn't that why there are laws in place for child actors? Otherwise why do we not allow their parents to decide how much and how many hours they work? Same difference to me.

SchmeckyGirl said...

Admin,

Sorry, I don't know where I saw the pics. It was a pic of the tups with two nannies outside and the article stated that Tony was there practicing with Kate in the basement. I am pretty sure Tony's tweet matched up with the story.

Then there were the pics of the kids saying goodbye to Tony after they practiced. It is possible that the kids got there just as Tony was leaving but there were pics of them tups outside sitting on their steps alone and I think the article stated that they were outside playing while he was there.

Also, weren't the kids home from school for the past week? I thought I read that somewhere. So if Kate was practicing any time at home during the day the past week then it was her time with the kids and it seems she's spending some of it practicing.

I'm sorry but I don't memorize the articles or take note of where I read them or saw the pics.

Administrator, the photo of the kids with the 2 nannies outside is in the Us Weekly article. The scan is at preesi's link above.

The caption reads:

"Kate Was Busy Dancing!"

"Kate tells Us her kids come first: DWTS practice will "adjust according to their schedule." Yet, on March 6, she rehearsed nearly all day inside her Wernersville, PA, home, as the kids played outside with nannies."

SchmeckyGirl said...

Thanks itsaboutthekids! Us Weekly! I couldn't remember where I saw it! And yes Tony's tweets match up with it.

itsaboutthekids said...

Yes, and now we have "damage control" that came out via E Online this afternoon. Of course, the information comes from, "a source" so I guess this article can be discounted as well. Sounds like no one earns a checkmate this time.

Surprise! Kate Gosselin Is Actually Really Nice?!
Today 1:10 PM PDT by Cristina Gibson

Despite reports that Kate Gosselin is being a total diva on the set of Dancing With the Stars, one source who's worked closely with the mom of eight admits to being pleasantly surprised otherwise.

"I didn't know what to expect, but she was really nice," a source tells E! News of the much-maligned DWTS contestant, adding that despite Kate's busy schedule, which includes bicoastal rehearsals and show tapings, she's a good mom, too.

"She's great with the kids," the source says. "What Kate says, they do."

We definitely believe that one! But how about their dad, Jon Gosselin?

Although Jon has moved out of their Pennsylvania home where Kate's busy rehearsing, he's not far from the kids' minds.

"They talk about their dad all the time," the source says. "They love him."

And they'll definitely be seeing their dad on a regular basis, as Jon will be taking care of them while Kate's in L.A. for show tapings.

The only complaint Kate did make? "She says the media is really bad," the source tells us.

Tony bringing coffee to Kate ..... brings back memories of how she had trained Jon to do the same thing. Watch out Tony, we all know how that ended.

Tony appears to be a nice guy, he deserves so much better but being the professional that he is,he will make the best of his situation.

PatK said...

She actually complained that the media is bad? Was she referring to that 10% of the media that is NOT kissing her hiney?

Administrator said...

Ah ok the pics were from last week not the other day.

Actually the first thing I thought was that if Kate especially as a non-dancer wants a shot at this she is going to be working her butt off. Even if she is home, the kids won't get any of her time or attention.

Anonymous said...

Joy Behar just had about a 3 minute segment with some panelists about Kate and the "diva" behavior. The panelists were funny. It basically boiled down it is obvious she is controlling & a grouch on the show so why would she be different.

MSM is trying to say she has been busy practicing in Pennsylvania. Did they not notice all the New York and Indiana? Oh, yes we are talking about Kate she gets all the breaks because Discovery can influence he media however they please. I guess.

~Irene~

itsaboutthekids said...

Kate's about out of time for practicing her dance. She has The View on Wednesday in NY, travel time to and from, and then the trip to LA which will probably eat up another day. With the show 6 days away how much time can that leave? Oh, and of course she'll be spending time with the kids somewhere in there too. One thing even Kate can't do and that's create time that doesn't exist. 24hrs. in a day is the same for all of us (except of course when time changes and now we have even one less hour :o)

How do you knwo the porsche is his? He bought an entire porsche just to drive it around PA? At most it's a lease but to actually buy, is he gonna drive it back to LA when he's done?

Administrator said...

Your calculations are right, Itsabout. She has tomorrow to rehearse, then off to The View. The View Wednesday, then off to LA to rehearse with the other contestants thursday and friday, maybe sunday. A few more rehearsals in the evenings, on the weekends, in LA. No more kiddies until a week from Wednesday when she flies back.

Tony had to bring the coffee? What Kate does not own a coffee maker? She can't coffee herself? Oh, that's right, she kicked out her servant Jon, so now she has someone else she can manipulate for her.

One should not comment about people unless you know all the facts: Fact is, Tony lives in Connecticut with his wife and three children. This situation with Kate works perfectly for him.

This is from Fox News:

"Kate loves having her hair done and being able to wear expensive clothes that she borrows, but she would trade it all for a small quiet life with the kids."

This particular one takes the cake. Earlier in the article it mentions that she can't rely on Jon for monetary support. Another big fat lie!

itsaboutthekids said...

Here's the full report. Sounds like a "please feel sorry for me and, BTW VOTE FOR ME ON DWTS!! Kate really is pathetic. Once again using her children to slum for votes.

"Kate Gosselin is ticked off at all the negative reports lately."

Friends tell Fox 411 that she is working herself to exhaustion and trying to spend time with the children every spare second. The mom of eight, who debuts with dance partner, Tony Dovoloni on “Dancing with the Stars” on March 22nd, is busy providing a living for her family.

"Kate is working her butt off right now and she tries to ignore all the reports that she's a bad mom or the diva among the cast of ‘Dancing with the Stars,’” friends tell Fox411.


“The only reason she hasn't been able to hang out with everyone and bond with the cast is because she has eight children in Pennsylvania. She could not move them all with her to rehearse in LA, so Tony has relocated to PA to train her every day.”

But don’t think there is any resentment from Tony’s family. In fact, we hear Tony's wife loves Kate and they have a great relationship.

“Kate may not be able to bond with the other people due to her location, but she's doing her best to dive into the show and routines with Tony."

Still, above all else, the busy mom is worried about paying her bills more than she's worried about people thinking she's rude to the “Dancing with the Stars” cast.

With ex-husband Jon around only to help parent the kids but not support them monetarily, the brunt of the financial responsibility rests on Kate's shoulders.

"Kate is under a lot of pressure to make her mortgage payment and monthly bills,” sources tell Fox411. “She considers herself a true single mom and she knows other mothers understand what she is going through. Her hope is that moms all over the country will be her support system and vote for her on ‘DWTS.’ She loves traveling and meeting women everywhere and she feels like mothers get what she's doing - supporting her family."

But aside from working to provide for her kids, does Kate enjoy the fame and glamour of her new life?

"Kate loves having her hair done and being able to wear expensive clothes that she borrows, but she would trade it all for a small quiet life with the kids. She is trying to find creative avenues for work so she can be with the children and working at the same time. Kate is doing her best at keeping her family together and happy."

Kate and Julie Carson May on the defensive now. The pro-Kate stories are becoming more bizarre, comical and unbelievable. The false Kate Gosselin they built is now about to crumble. I, for one, will love watching her fall. One cannot lie forever and get away with it.

First, any logic would say he is staying in the PA area. Secondly he has a studio in NYC to maybe he travels back and forth from the city to PA. Jon does the exact same thing. What do you have against Tony in the first place. You really are insinuating things about him.

No one is bad mouthing or insinuating things about Tony. What things? That he drives a porsche? It's true, and at least he earned it with his own money, not off the backs of his kids. I like Tony! I feel bad for Tony that he has to drag himself to PA, Indiana, or wherever Kate may be, plus to LA for the show. None of these places are anywhere near Conneticut. I don't think this is a dream gig for him, I think this sounds like a major hassle and he likely was chosen very carefully and compensated accordingly. I also feel bad he too is now being stalked by the paparazzi, and his family is now getting a lot of attention. No partner of his before has ever been stalked this way.

It's not like she would have to find a channel to get a contract with...or, I don't know, invest your $1 millon dollar book contract into a few McDonalds, watch other people work for you, and live off that! She doesn't HAVE to do DWTS, she doesn't HAVE to live the lifestyle she is living, and IMO, she is further damaging the relationship that she has with her ex, and creating unrest for her children by continuing to do press. So much for a peaceful, healthy home.
