Jon with kids

Jon played with the kids today while Kate was in L.A. rehearsing for DWTS. Perhaps in response to Kate's Kalendar, Radaronline pointed out that Jon was away from the kids more than Kate over the past several months. However that was Jon's whole point in his custody filing--he explained that in the current agreement Kate controls his visitation schedule and would dictate it to him on a weekly basis, abusing the privilege.

Jon is being trampled by negative comments at ROL, nothing new there.

But it does drive me crazy to see just how far the'll go to make Jon look bad, while promoting Khate as a saint.

Lauren said...

I'm glad Jon is spending QUALITY time with the kids. And look at Mady, it seems like she is so much happier when she is around her loving daddy. That's sweet.

Compare this to staged photo-ops with Kate teetering around on her hooker heels looking completely disinterested in what the kids are doing. Bitch.

just.me said...

Lauren, I agree.

The children have always appeared to be happier and more relaxed around Jon.

With Khate? It's more as if they live in fear of her wrath.

itsaboutthekids said...

I quit reading ROL/TLC because it's always Kate Krap (thanks, Bruno) and infuriating. If there's any nugget of real information someone will post it here.

I just found this site yesterday and it's such a breath of fresh air!

I just figured out how to set up my google account, this is a test post!

Yes, itaboutthekids I agree. TLC is so in bed with the tabloids at times it is sick.

I am glad he is with the kids. They deserve to have their dad with them if Mom is busy being a working girl.

Welcome Me this is the blog for the most up to date latest on the Gosselins. It usually ends up here before other blogs. Get the word out bloggers. Put it on your facebook etc.

Irene, thanks! Have you not set up the google account yet? It's super easy, and I'm an idiot when it comes to computers! If you click on it, it takes about thirty seconds.

itsaboutthekids said...

Hi Irene, I'm glad Jon's there too. Those children are in dire need of some real parenting. I hope he has a nanny to help out around the house so he can spend mega time with the kids. I'm sure they've missed his warmth and kindness.

Anonymous said...

Hey itsabouthekids, yes, I will get my google account going.

I hate they photograph the kids (the paps) but one thing the paparazzi photo trail does not lie. It may work in Jon's benefit in the end.
I saw Kate at the supermarket today. So many really great magazines out there and she is just tabloid junk food compared to real women of substance like Michelle Obama, Oprah, etc. S

Paula said...

Ho hum, anyone hear the crickets?

Yes, the kids always look happy and content with Jon. He actually plays with them rather than giving them scowling looks or totally ignoring them. It's good to see Mady smiling.

Anonymous said...

Another photo op for Jon Gosselin.

I guess we can look forward to another endless summer of Jon workiing the fence.

itsaboutthekids said...

There are definitely many super women who should be on magazine covers because they represent what most of us strive to be. But I don't think these women are much interested in tabloid covers.

just wondering said...

Are these photos from INFphoto? Because if they are, they are all TLC sanctioned photos. I can't help but wonder if Jon's timely announcement isn't just more hype for Kate's book and new shows. Sorry, but I just don't believe any of them anymore!

Paula said...

Now, Now, Anonymous..if Kate can have photo ops, don't deny Jon the right to have them as well.

Besides, I would rather see Jon at the fence than Kate in those bikinis she wore last summer.

itsaboutthekids said...

JW, you forced me to go look at ROL and yes, they're marked INF.com. My question would be, if Jon is under contract with TLC, and TLC said "Jon, go stand in the front yard and play with the kids." Could Jon say no even if he wanted to? Not saying he did. I just wonder who's pulling the strings here, Jon or TLC.

Anonymous said...

I agree fair is fair. I would never deny Jon his right to another photo op.

It's funny that when Kate is pictured outside with the children it's a photo op...when it's Jon it's just good parenting.

I finally agree with you about something Just Wondering. I never thought I would say that.

Paula said...

Didn't the blogger from Wernersville state that there is one INF photographer at the Konpound? If so, I am sure these are from INF. I guess Jon still "sells"...LOL.

From the sidelines said...

FLOGGER, you are harassing Irene on this blog. She is not responsible for Z and neither one of them need to answer to you.

Gosselin. . . HAPPY???

ToAnonymous said...

When Kate has a photo op she's dressed to the nines and the kids are matchy-matchy, organized and posed.

He's in casual clothing and the kids are not matchy-matchy. Yeah, same thing.

just wondering said...

I think they are ALL (Jon, Kate, TLC) playing everyone for fools. I think Kate was signed to dance 4 times and then go promote her book and the new shows. I think Jon was told to instigate some trouble to get publicity for the shows and I think we are all idiots. Me included.

Anonymous said...

They were celebrating Easter. We dress up for our Easter pics in my family.

They are not always matchy matchy.

ToAnonymous said...

You are just acting like a pitbull and I find it annoying.

ToAnonymous said...

OF course you do!
You all dress up, matchy-matchy the DAY before Easter for photo ops. It's what most good Christians do, right.

You are full of SHIT but it's getting funny watching you tap dance.

Anonymous said...

They were having an Easter egg hunt outside. Who dresses up for an Easter Egg hunt?

Anonymous said...

I'm just giving you a reasonable explanation.

Why do you find that annoying?

ToAnonymous said...

I find the continual poking of Irene and Z annoying.

mommyinca said...

Here's a thought: Each "side" can pick 3 points of controversy with Kate and write their opinion on it based on facts that can be verified (video or pics). After each side has submitted their argument, they can both follow up with rebuttals.
It can be posted on both the fan and non fan sites.
(just a though ;) )

My thinking is that the anti child exploiter side will come out with more intelligible arguments.

Anonymous said...

Every family celebrates Easter differently.

She was going to be away for Easter. They celebrated a day early and yes some people do dress up for Easter egg hunting...believe it or not.

You are just irritated because there is a reasonable explanation.

itsaboutthekids said...

JW, I don't know all the reasons why Jon filed for primary custody, but I do believe he is worried about his kids and the fact that they are without parents a significant portion of the time. He might be a lot of things, but I don't believe he's cold-hearted when it comes to them. JMO

Anonymous said...

Just wondering I have to say for maybe the second time I agree with you also.
And the laugh is most likely on us.

Anonymous said...

Hey Irene brought up the flog not me. If she doesn't want to be poked she shouldn't mention it.

Paula said...

Yes, "tap dance", that's the word I have been looking for - the sheeple keep tap-dancing around the truth. Children dress up for church, not Easter Egg hunts not held on Easter day.

itsaboutthekids said...

I thought this was a Gosselin blog, not a Z, Irene blog. I think we should stick to the topic. Please.

Anonymous said...

Paula since when do you make the rules about when people dress up and when they don't.

Everyone is different.

ToAnonymous said...

And what is a reasonable explanation for exploiting her kids? leaving them for long periods of time? publicly trashing their father?

8 lives have been altered because of selfish parents. What is reasonable about this and why do YOU defend it?

Anonymous said...

If you prefer to sit here and pat each other on the back about how great you are and how bad Kate is then I will go away.

I just thought you would enjoy some friendly debate, but obviously you just want to sit here gloating about how you are so much better than kate.

You people are boring...same old Kate is a bad mommy..Jon is the best dad in the world.

OH PLEASE

Paula said...

Well, I have no problem saying that I am a better mother than Kate Gosselin.

just.me said...

This has become silly with the back and forth arguing.

Khate's day before Easter egg hunt, with the children dressed up and her wearing heels was much more of a staged photo op than Jon's playing with the kids in a normal fashion.

Anyone who can't see the difference is nuts!

Anonymous said...

Both parents have trashed each other. Both want careers in TV or maybe even films.
I don't think it matters how any of us feel about it.

ToAnonymous said...

Nobody thinks Jon is the best dad in the world.
He's still a better parent. Don't you "get it?" Kate is so bad that the cheating, drug addicted, douche bag is a BETTER PARENT.

just.me said...

Um, I think it would be safe to assume that every poster on this board is a better mom than Kate. Both the one's I agree and the one's disagree with.

ToAnonymous said...

Just.me, itsabout, admin, anon, dee3 & everybody else with a BRAIN:

I'd like to pat you on the back for opening your eyes and not supporting a person JUST because she has a uterus.

Many of us have been 'done wrong' by bad men but we can still see what is best for the kids and it is NOT Kate.

TY! I actually didn't have to open my eyes too far to see what was in front of my face. It's more like needing to open your heart and feel what the children are feeling.

Just Wondering is right. She put it all together.
Everyone got played.

Paula when you have eight little children then you can say you're a better mother than Kate.

just.me said...

Khate was angry and humiliated by having the police (how dare they?) tell her she couldn't be on the property during Jon's custody.

She's a spiteful person, and I think she relishes the fact that she can now deny Jon access to their children.

I know, that's a horrible thing to say. ANY decent mother would put the children's welfare ahead of their pettiness.

But she's not even close to being a decent mother.

just.me said...

Khate's klones may attempt to defend their leader here, just as they do on other sites.

But this is a more level playing field, so I'm not worried.

Annoyed, yes. Worried? Only for them!

Paula said...

The number of children has nothing to do with being a good mother or not. Sorry, sheeple, that argument is old and worn and silly.

Administrator said...

There's just one big flaw in the "they're all in on this together" theory which actually I once strongly thought was very possible.

Kate...can't...act. Bruno said it, Kate said it, everyone has said it. Watch her last 3 dances her acting skills are akin to that of a cucumber. To have them all be in on it would require an Oscar worthy performance out of her she is not capable of giving.

Ehhh: Theory debunked.

SchmeckyGirl said...

Good point Admin! Maybe that's why she doesn't talk to the paps and why she always comes across as fake and words her words so carefully and "takes the high road". Did you see her interview with Natalie Morales? That whole thing was bad acting.

MK said...

Kate can't act...I think that is why she has Steve. He serves as her block to the world. Then she can hide behind the "Oh, I would sign that for you, take that photo with you, chat with you forever, but he won't let me" wall. I think TLC knows what she would be like actually interacting with fans (she even talks about it in the book...I would talk with you, but I have eight kids to put in the car...) and this way the fans think that she is just a peach and its just the bodyguard keeping them away from her!

Linda from NS said...

Steve is there to protect the public FROM Kart, not Kart from the public. TLC doesn't want her to open her mouth and have her "fans" see how stupid the woman is. Better to remain silent and have folk think you are a moron than open your mouth and prove it.

StoryLady said...

Two little things:
1. Where did this "Jon is a drug addict" thing come from? Where is the documentation?

2. Not only am I a better mother than Kate, I would say the only creature who is a worse mother is the Giant Panda, who forgets she's given birth and sits on her babies. That's why they're almost extinct.

StoryLady - our Giant Panda at the Zoo Atlanta, Lun Lun, is an excellent mother. I dare say that Kate could learn some wonderful skills about taking care of her kids from Lun Lun.

Kelly said...

Looking at her picture on the cover of that "Diary of Dispair" they have photo shopped her picture to the extent that it's almost a cartoon character. I don't get this contract J&K have with TLC. Did they sign it as JKG, their corporate trade name or did they have one for Jon and a separate one for Kart?
Seems they have allowed Kart to write anything she wants, show up on any show she wants and she gets a hall pass in doing so.

If Jon so much as opens his mouth at the fence in Wernersville, the thought Police from TLC will be on the red phone to Williams and Connelly seeking a body attachement for Jon.

On second thought, I don't think they could get a body attachment for Kart. Too much of a risk in cracking the veneers and all the other plastic she's had attached to that body this past year.

dee3 said...

I can understand how some could suspect a conspiracy theory in this situation but Administrator is so right. Kate cannot act. And this is mainly due to her NPD. When she is stressed, she is unable to hide her anger. Her intense dislike of Jon was palpable even in the first season, her anger at the judges at DWTS is clearly evident, etc.
When she is calm and fed her lines, she can half-way pull it off. But as soon as she's upset, angered or annoyed, she can't control it...how the paps got the photos of her hitting her daughter in the front yard.

This is why most of my disgust is with TLC. They have taken advantage of a person with NPD and high-lighted all of her histrionics for ratings and money. She's just too blinded by her narcissism to see this.

And her fans say she laughs all the way to the bank. But at what cost? She'll go down in history as being one of the most reviled celebrities of all time...with the likes of Speidi, etc....in the annals of infamy and notoriety. The lives of her children will be negatively affected forever, their most private moments all over the internet for anyone to see.

The ONLY good that can come of this is that perhaps someday....this debacle will be responsible for there being more protections for children on reality TV...so that a corporation like TLC cannot take advantage of children too young to give their consent.

Because there will always be parents like the Heens the Gosselins and Octomom who will put fame and money before the rights and concerns of their young children. And there needs to be protection for the children in these situations.
