Aunt Jodi's phone interview with Dr. Beth DuPree; 15 Minutes 'Nailed it'

Just in case Kate tries to accuse Jodi again of getting paid for this or not being with her kids--Jodi and Dr. DuPree both stated she was not being paid. In addition, Jodi did the interview by phone, from her home of Elizabethtown. Kevin was at one of the children's soccer games.
Snippet of Jodi's interview with Dr. Beth DuPree which features our blog:
The full interview can be heard here: http://www.tmveastwest.com/node/63.
You have currently collectively donated $378 to A Minor Consideration in honor of Jodi and Kevin's courage. I've decided to extend the donation period to see if we can get to $500. (Of course you can always donate at another time, but we want to make a donation as a group.) Please give generously, to find out how to donate please go here (you MUST e-mail me the amount of your donation for it to count with the group or I won't know who has donated what. Donations are processed directly through AMC, not through me.)

I haven't heard the interview yet as I'm having computer troubles, but I had a thought to share.

With the custody battle looming and Kate's new show(s) on the horizon, I think we should be prepared for a media onslaught from the Gosselin/TLC camp. I think we ain't seen nothing yet. Thoughts?

NancyB said...

Admin- Were you ever able to get the radio stream to play? I still can not. When I click to begin it it tells me error in file.

Kelly said...

NancyB,
At the end of the comment, you can click on the "download" and it will play. It's very interesting.

mommyinca said...

Jodi and Kevin are true heroes. Jodi always came across as a loving hands on mom. I think it was mentioned by Julie (maybe?) that Kate was jealous of the fan mail Jodi was getting (through TLC). I can see why.
Jodi is genuine and truly cares. When she was interviewed, she NEVER mentioned how hard it was to take care of Kate's 8 + her four! She just enjoyed the time she had with all of them. Kate couldn't go through a show without bringing up how exhausted she was and how hard it was to have 8 children (even though scarcely a day went by when she was alone with them).

just.me said...

Admin,

Why not auction off your autographed copy of Kart's book to raise money for the cause?

Whoever wins could have you burn it in their honor!

just.me said...

cherier,

I think you're correct. TLC is planning major damage control and there's very little they could say or do that would surprise me. It's not that they love the Kart, it's simply business. They have too much invested in her to allow the "brand" to fail.


mommyinca,

Jodi and Kevin ARE heroes in my book. I don't think any of us can truly comprehend the loss they've suffered and the pain they've endured on behalf of the eight little innocent children they love.

NancyB said...

I finally used Firefox browser instead of IE
and it worked with no problem. I wonder why?

SchmeckyGirl said...

I'm so behind... Gotta catch up...

mommyinca said...

I just thought of something. Kate's income should NOT depend on her children being filmed again. I know it's not the ONLY show she's doing but if she's not doing it for the money and can get by without doing both shows, then why put your kids through that kind of work?

Just more questions that no one will ask Kate :(

You're lying! The twins hate him! I also read an article about him touching them inappropriately at bath time! Also he bashes their mom to them! They hate it when he talks bad about their mom!

Here's the type of garbage Kate supporters post on ROL. Unbelievably sick & demented bull shit! This crap will never end until the Gosselins disappear from the radar BUT everyone knows Kate chases the dragon of fame to fulfill her unquenchable thirst for fame & fortune. Her GREEDY, selfish position is always "for the sake of the kids." Intelligent people KNOW she is a pathological liar filled with entitled, egoistical self importance.

Great job Mommy Dearest, now your crazy ass fans are spreading the WORST kind of gossip about Jon. Now HOW THE HELL will the twins defend themselves in school when their classmates or other crazies ask them about their father, WHOM THEY LOVE!

Sorry Admin, here is a PERFECT example of WHY the kids need to be protected. Kate doesn't need a bodyguard, the Gosselin 8 need a body guard & lawyer MORE!

mama mia said...

I think viewers quickly caught on that Jodi was the real deal, a hands on stay at home Mom, and Kate was the reluctant tv Mom who really didn't want to spend any time with her kids. You got the sense she didn't want to participate in anything kid related, and when they were sick, forget it, they were someone else's problem. The tide is slowly turning, more tv critics are questioning how long the public will tune in to see Kate.

disgusted in PA said...

Re: New Hampshire
Yes, there are people who have been "onto" the Gosselins for years. If you google The Patriot News and the Reading Eagle newspapers (blogs)from when the tups were born and shortly thereafter, you will see that some PA residents were onto them from the begininng. They have had their hands out, asking for donations and money from PA taxpayers from the time that they found out Kate was expecting sextuplets. The governor of PA even created and handed Jon a job at the State offices in Harrisburg. They got a free makeover of their home in Wyomissing (BTW, Kate disliked the style of the makeover) and turned around and used the increases equity in the home to buy the Elizabethtown house.
They moved to E-town to be closer to Jon's job and so that Jodi and Kevin could watch the children when needed. Jodi took all of the tups every Friday for Kate.
But none of that was good enough for Kate. She felt entitled to more. And, when the show took off and became popular, she's seized every opportunity to get more--of course it's "ALL for the kids."

French Canadian said...

Dr. Jennifer M. Thomas is a motivational speaker and psychologist

My analysis: I commend Kate for this admission of (probable) fault (our 2nd language of apology) and her statement that she has learned to watch what she says (our 4th language of apology). All apologies are stronger if the speaker omits the word “probably”. This goes in the same category as “if I did something wrong” and “to the extent that I offended others.” These phrases belong in the trash can.

I don't know where I should post that comment....

I giggled when I saw the amount collected - I know why the number ends in 8.

I was laid off due to the economy and even though I normally would have donanted more, I decided a dollar for each Gosselin kid would be OK too.

At the end of the radio interview last Saturday I realized that if I ever move to PA I want to live near Jodi. The Gosselin children were blessed with this aunt; I hope that the kids and the Kreiders will be able to be family again soon.

Kate's book continues to sink at Amazon.com...now #316 in sales (sales rank).

When it comes to the fans:

"If you stand for nothing, you'll fall for anything."

I was thinking of the Administrator's experience at the book-signing Friday night...and I honestly can't think of one thing someone could ask me that I could not come up with some sort of reasonable answer for...even if just to be evasive, like someone earlier mentioned (just say "no comment").
I mean, I would probably just stare if, for instance, a flower started suddenly growing out of someone's head right in front of me....but I don't think I've ever been struck dumb and just stared in response to just something someone has said or asked me.

It seemed to me like more of a "HOW DARE YOU?" kinda stare than a "can't think of anything to say" one. Not that I think she could come up with a great answer right off the cuff...but a "no comment" takes no degree of extensive consideration....or a "sorry, can't discuss that here", or something similar.

And for Steve...not a bodyguard, a handler. A MAN-HANDLER.

Hello admin I was wondering if you were going
to add some more red circles to the kalender?
It seems like she has not gone home to see
the kids after all the bs she spews like every breath
she takes is a lie another lie after and on top
of all her lies lies lies. We know it's all about
her alllllll for her and always her !

mama mia said...

What makes a best seller anyway? It is not literary greatness or copies sold, it is a tool used by agents and publishing companies to market more books from the author. With Amazon, there are bursts of sales that can boost the best seller rating.
In any event, Kate is not an author or a story teller by any stretch of the imagination. She is a fabrication, right down to her veneered covered teeth that she grins and dares anyone to challenge her story. Nobody will, there is far too much money to be made exploiting those children.

AuntieAnn said...

dee,
Kate was caught off guard and hadn't yet construed a stock answer for that question. This issue is not going to go away unnoticed and it is bigger than she thought a few days ago. I predict that TLC is preparing her for the questions interviewers will ask about the hearing and she is rehearsing them now. They will be along the lines of "Of course, I will comply with any rules laid out, because I'm a rule-follower. My children's welfare is always at the forefront of everything I do for them."
It will be a heap of steaming horseshit mind you, but she will be answering the questions in the sweetest tone before the week is out. She knows how to play it and she will.

In that pwspoilers article, it said:

"Jon Gosselin is claiming that Kate has become an “absentee mom” because of her traveling back and forth between Los Angeles and Pennsylvania and wants primary custody of his children. Gosselin, however, likely doesn’t have the money that Kate is receiving from her book sales, Dancing with the Stars and her TLC reality shows, so it will probably be hard for him to get custody of the kids."

Which makes no sense, legally, IMO. I'm not a lawyer but I don't think they base custody on one parent making much more than the other. If that were the case, many SAHM would be losing custody in divorce battles. That's what child support is for...and they use specific formulas to calculate the amount.

mommyinca said...

Just this morning I was thinking that Kate will probably start trying to hit the younger crowd by going on KIIS fm and talking to Ryan Seacrest. Well guess what? She did this morning! Man, is there no escaping Kate's narcissism?

marnie said...

I have not listened to the interview, but does anyone know if Jodi addressed the Jon issue? It seemed that Kevin and Jodi were happy when Jon stopped the filming of the kids - and now that the 8 will on tv again, it seems Jon MUST have done an about-face on that. Did they ask Jodi about this? I'd love to know how Jodi and Kevin feel about this, and whether they have spoken to Jon.

Even Geraldo was trashing Jon and defending Kate. He failed to note the $20,000 kate gets every month and how tlc has stopped Jon from working....the PR folk are on the job.

Lolly said...

Kate with her "I have to travel because I am a single mom". Why did she travel so much while she was married? She made many personal appearances while married. Promoted her books, long months on the road, while married. I can't take this single mom, so poor, have to work, dissing on Jon. I really hate that Jodi and Kevin are being ripped. What they are doing for the kids is wonderful. Listening to the radio interview with Ryan Seacrest is disgusting. DISGUSTING.

itsaboutthekids said...

mommyinca, here is also the link for the repeat of the live interview that was broadcast this morning with Ryan Seacrest and Kate. She does another fine job of subtly pointing out Jon's faults, how the marriage ended because HE changed, blah, blah. It's about 15 minutes and covers several topics.

In the beginning of the interview he asks her what are the pros and cons of doing DWTS. Her reply,

"There was no cons. I figured to whip my butt into shape and I need it." And, um, The pros were, I, I still don't know how to dance. So I was hoping that I would learn how to dance. And, um, it's work to me. And I need to do it. And it's all good. Dancing With The Stars is awesome. It was an honor."

No cons? I guess leaving the kids behind for days/weeks at a time is no problem.

I really appreciate the links that showed how J&K were using and abusing the system from the very beginning. People were mad back then!

I can't post the link, but hopefully someone here can. There's a story out today about how Kate and the kids will be on the road with the new TLC show. Someone precicted this the other day. Looks like TLC is being a little more cautious about filming in PA?

mommyinca said...

I'm sure Tony would love to hear that in spite of him being a professional dance teacher, he was unable to teach Kate how to dance.

Who next, Kate? "Well the reason I don't go to church anymore is that God's goals changed but mine didn't. He didn't know how to help me anymore".

AuntieAnn said...

Gosselin admitted to PopcornBiz that while the world knows about the show, she has held off telling her younger co-stars (especially the six five-year-olds). She figures waiting until the last minute will help her keep her sanity.

That ship sailed. What little sanity she might ever have had is long gone.

The WORLD knows about the show -- Bwaahahahahaha. Really Kate? The whole world? Kates putting herself in the same category as Princess Di now. Delusional.

Does anyone know if, by law, Jon has to also give permission for the kids to leave the state?

NT said...

ROL has pics of Kate and the kids at DisneyWorld on Saturday. Guess that means the kids will be front and center on DWTS tonite. People were booing her because they were being rushed to front of the lines after people were waiting for hours.

just.me said...

Klever Kart KNEW she was getting a lot of flack for NEVER spending any time with her children. This Disneyland trip was nothing more than PR. Now that TLC is aware that they're being scrutinized over the laws regarding children in entertainment, I bet they were disappointed. Couldn't film in Cali again without abiding by the laws of the state.

Admin was very smart not to mark the Kalendar, she probably sensed something like this was going to happen. Does anyone know when the kids arrived? And WHEN, if at all, did Kart make time to rehearse to tonight's show?

mommyinca said...

So the kids were flown out to Ca. on the weekend ...spent the day at Disneyland (when did Kate rehearse?) Now either the kids are back home or will be on the show tonight. Either way, if those kids were filmed by TLC, then please someone contact Gloria Allred to make sure they got permits!!

In response to mommyinca.........bet $ to donuts, they will say the kids were filmed by "news media" and exempt from child welfare laws.

OK will somebody please teach that moronic woman basic English. "Was no cons"?!? WTF! Further she should be told by her handlers one does not begin a sentence with "And". Oh wait, my apologies, she cannot be taught.
