Kate's book falls from #11 to #22 on New York Times Best-seller list

Exploitive Letters to my Money-Makers, aka "I Just Want you to Know" is sinking.

Well who would want to read Chapters 1 - 15 "I am so special and I truly truly love just me" and of couse Chapters 16 - end "I do it all for my kids ... love me that is!"
I keep hoping Khate sees her 15 minutes in her rear view mirror soon!

anonymouse said...

Kaydar has a video of Kate running the 5k with Cara. Kate is in the back of the group of runners and you can hear her complain....

"HOW MUCH FURTHER". LOL

Obviously she is only doing this for the cameras as TLC is probably filming this for her reality series.

"How much further".. LOL... Sounds like a little kids complaining "are we there yet?"...

my9cats said...

Kate probably ran all of 100 yards.
Cameras off/Kate stops.

fidosmommy said...

OK, my first attempt at posting was "unable to be processed"

In a nutshell, I'm not surprised the book is falling on the NYTBSL.

Who writes a book about love and faith, and then grumbles throughout? How does it say "I love you, Leah" by talking about how much trash had to be sorted because of Leah and her siblings?
How does it say "Have faith" when Mommy is so
obsessively fearful of the house catching on fire
and the kids dying? Sheesh, Kate, get a smoke alarm for each room and a baby monitor in the
children's rooms!

Kate's message is not love and faith. It is a
laundry list of all the trouble these children have caused her. First, they were trouble to even conceive. Then they were trouble when they were inside her, then they were trouble when they got home, then they were trouble as they grew up. There was not enough money for all these kids, there was not enough time for all these kids, there was not enough of anything for all these kids. But hey, once she discovered they were her built-in commodities to make cash, suddenly they became her little blessings.

That is a particularly good one!!!!

Where is Cara in the video? And interesting that ROL reports that the ever-present Steve Neild was there "guarding her body" from the sidelines. BARF. J.

Kelly said...

Steve wasn't guarding her body from the sidelines. Steve was sidelined when the crowd was running for a charity and he was dumbfounded as to why. Steve and Kate were more confused at the finish line as kids are on fathers day in Harlem.

fidosmommy said...

Cara is several yards behind Kate, walking. Steve is behind Cara. Cara suddenly sprints ahead and Steve starts running too.

I applaud Kate for doing this with Cara. Except for the fact that she's not wearing the "norm" clothing for this sort of race, I'm going to give her the benefit of the doubt and say she
was there for Cara. If this was a publicity stunt for Kate Gosselin, the film would have run longer and there would have been an interview with her. I don't care if she waves to her fans while on the course - I'm sure others had cheering sections along the way.

Then again, this might prove to be something filmed for TLC, and she might not have been there for Cara. Those who watch her new show will be the only ones who know. You'll have to tell me about it.

DeKonstruction Zlogger said...

If Khate did this to film a segment for Khate plus 8 & used Cara that is terrible but that is Khate.
If Khate did it to spend time with Cara great.

If Khate did it for PR purposes well, there again bad...that's khate!

DeKonstruction Zlogger said...

As far as the book. No kidding the letters are falling! And, Khate kan't get up!

anonymouse said...

We all know Kate would rather be at the spa then spend time with Cara.

Anyone else remember the Farm to Table episode? Where Cara was complaining about her ankle?

What did Kate do? Did Kate take Cara to the doctor? NO! Kate called a "sitter" and the sitter took Cara to the doctor...

Does the sitter know all of Cara's medical history? Her allergies? Previous injuries, surgeries, etc etc?

Kate instead stayed home to film "game night"....

After game night, the doctor called or Kate called and said that Cara needed an Xray. Kate then finally got off her butt and took Cara to the hospital.

After the Xray, you can clearly see Cara's ankle bandaged up and TLC was trying it's best to not film Cara's feet...

After the visit to the hospital, Kate was complaiing about how she doesn't have time in her sechudle to do all this...

Kate then said, "we don't have time for a cast to we Cara"..

What Kind of parent is that? You don't have time for a cast? So THANK GOD Cara didn't need a cast because Kate doesn't have time for it.

But she has all the time in the world to hit the nail salon, tanning salon or the spa...

It doesn't much matter which parts pass muster and which end up on the cutting room floor. As long as there is a show, these children will be followed around by cameras and mics and they will once again be stripped of their privacy and freedoms.

NancyB said...

I don't know... Steve seems to never be around "on duty", shall we say, unless TLC or ABC is paying his $1600/day fee. So, I'm thinking that TLC did film some of this and it will be used in some way for the show. We'll make sure that Z watches out for this 5K so he can let us know if Kart did this for Cara or for TLC!

Hate to be so cynical but I'm of the opinion it was for the show. Hey, I bet Steeve got a raise -that $1600 per day fee was quoted in People more than a yr ago. Such a difficult job that Steeve has. I have never seen Steeve with Kart (not counting holidays) except when she was "working". I sure can't see Kart shelling out his daily pay from her pocket. JMO.

Kelly said...

Chances are, These kids will survive.

SchmeckyGirl said...

that's nice they did the 5k together. I hope TLC didn't film it...

Carolina Gal said...

I'm sure K was running for the show, and how curious that it was for a charity. Again, TLC tries to inject a bit of "caring" into Kate's nasty self, we know it's an act. Kate, in an actual lucid, honest moment, admitted she wasn't much of a "giver", probably one of the few things I can recall her saying that was truthful. She should be so proud.

cherier1 said...

Schmeck - I think it's filmed. As NancyB said, and I agree with her, Steve only seems to be around when someone else is paying his tab.

I watched the vid at ROL...noticed other moms running side-by-side with their daughters. That's what I would do. Kate is running with another woman and ROL says she stops several times to let Cara catch up. WTF? How is that a mom-daughter activity? I'm sure Cara felt very special and included just to be in the same general area ;)

escrow said...

I wonder how much Cara charged for this appearance?

NancyB said...

Kelly - that was a real nice touch!

Escrow - you crack me up :)

TheresaB. said...

Don't you mean, how much did Cara have to PAY for this appearance?

escrow said...

ThereasB......My spelling sometimes alludes me....but...touche....you said what I meant...and NancyB..thank you very much

mommyinca said...

I'm reticent of Kate's sudden charity work. I agree with others that TLC crews were probably filming. Even if they weren't, the pics of her running for a charity with her daughter kill two birds with one stone. 1. She's being a good mother and 2. She's being a good citizen. bingo bango!

Someone mentioned Kate running ahead of Cara and then stopping so Cara could catch up. Anyone remember the scene in Mommie Dearest where Joan Crawford challenges Tina to a swimming lap contest? Joan makes sure that she wins and tells her daughter something to the effect of "You have to try harder" or something odd. She HAD to win and couldn't stand to be in competition with her own daughter. I see this happening with Kate. If any of her children ever "make it" in show biz (I hope not unless they have a true talent and work hard), Kate will make sure that she does better. She will not be able to handle their success unless she is somehow a part of it. Just my 2 cents.

anonymouse said... "Anyone else remember the Farm to Table episode? Where Cara was complaining about her ankle?"

I do. That episode ticked me off. It took Mady complaining on camera before Kate finally deigned to get Cara medical attention. This after Cara complaining about the pain for THREE DAYS!!

If I didn't love Mady before that moment I'd start loving her there. She knew exactly the right time to speak up. And then delegating the babysitter to the important task while Kate played star, all the while complaining that she had to squeeze this all in at the "last minute" because Lord knows Jon would never take the kids to the doctor (that's the queue to find & post the dozens of photos of Jon taking various kids to the doc solo... I don't recall any of Kate doing the same).

And it's not the first time. Remember the last checkup for the tups they filmed? One of them (Alexis?) apparently had been complaining about a sore ear for three WEEKS and former nurse Kate figured it would be easier to wait than get her daughter medical attention when it was needed. There's only the possibility of it making the kid deaf in one ear or leading to a more serious infection, but that's okay because it's just too hard to keep just one healthy.

There's never enough time to take her kids anywhere they won't be filmed, yet there's always tons of time for the spa, shopping & media appearances. Nice priorities!

I truly hope though that the 5k run was in fact for her & Cara and wasn't filmed.

As for the book... only #22? How the heck do they calculate these numbers?!? Cuz it sure can't be by actual sales.

Looks like Al wrote the book on the Gosselins:

Monday

Cast a write-in vote and put this blogger atop the Pinnacle of Berks!
Monday, April 12, 2010 at 08:17AM
It's Monday morning and time for some frivolity.
So head on over to your favorite newspaper's Web site and cast a write-in vote for, ahem, yours truly to reside with John Updike, Keith Haring and Jim Steranko atop the Pinnacle of Berks for artists and writers.
I know, I know, the geniuses who created this poll will say bloggers are ineligible because their legend doesn't transcend the boundaries of Berks. But what those small-minded people do not realize is that we have a book coming out in a couple weeks, "The Secret World of Jon & Kate," a tell-all, behind-the-scenes glimpse at the stupidest story in the history of the universe, one that involves Berks County's first family, the Gosselins, that is certainly destined for best-sellerdom. It will sell more copies in 2010 than anything by John Updike. It's even destined to be a major motion picture. Says so right on the cover. What more bona fides do you need?
So hurry on over and cast your happy fun vote! Thank you and good morning.

Not to keep harping on it, but failure to provide appropriate medical treatment when needed is reportable child abuse in Canada...

Just adding that I didn't see Steve and Cara in the clip because ROL's "main" clip is just a few seconds of Kate running alongside some woman. Had to go to a secondary clip to see Cara and Steviepoo. J.

--------------------------------------------

The bigger question is, does KATE know all of Cara's medical history? Remember that "Kate didn't know which toothbrush each child used, or which ones still wore pull ups". The sitter probably knew more than Kate!

koopdedoo said...

Participate in an event that is for empowering girls and NOT stay side by side with your daughter? Geez, Louise!

______________________________________

She already did that with the dogs on the treadmill. Telling the cams that she got on for her run. Then the dogs got on the mill with her and they lost. Kate was laughing about this. With the rate kate loves to belittle her children and jon. This wouldn't put it past me of her being more self-centered and inconsiderate of other peoples feelings around her. Just so it makes her feel more important and special in her own sick way.

For the charity event. HELLOOO I would of had cara by my side. I would keep up with her pace. Not mine. A child cant run like a adult. Does Kate what her children to be abducted?? Granted there is paps, kaydar, um that steve guy :P, and some spectators. But still the danger is out there every day for these kids. Gezz whom am I kidding maybe in Kate's sick mind. She wouldnt mind having one of them taken from her. Just so she can get in the spot light once again.

AuntieAnn said...

I wonder why Kate is only person running who isn't wearing a number.

MickeyMcKean said...

Sugar & Spice - This was my thought when I first read the story about the 5K run but I did not want to post it. What mother who has put her children on display on TV for all child predators in this crazy world would not run with the child by her side?

The Gosselins have put their children out there as bait for every child predator and when they are totally off the air - and I do believe that day is coming - I do fear for the kids because I believe that there is at least one crazy person out there who will miss them so much that they will feel entitled to grabbing one of the kids. Then oh you better believe it, Kate will go on TV and make the most of another round of 15 minutes.

I think it's off the wall to say Kate would want one of her children abducted. I don't think that is true. She loves attention but not that badly.

***********************************************
She donated used car seats the day before. This sudden giving back is definitely PR/TLC organized. By the way, donating used car seats that can't be given out by a non-profit. It's against the law. It's a safety issue!

cherier1 said...

Al's column was written April 12, so the book should be coming out any time now :)

Schmeck - I agree: Kate wouldn't want a child of hers abducted. Saying Kate would welcome an adbuction is not worthy of this board.

Mona said...

I'm behind the times here. Is there really a book coming out? A real book that will expose the Gosselin story? Or is this just a joke?

DeKonstruction Zlogger said...

Schmecky you are certainly right about knowing her number. And, from the looks of the blogosphere it is like she is crashing & burning as we speak. This whole thing is starting to unravel and going downhill fast.

I just wish for once Kate would have ran with her daughter. It seems like a metaphor with Kate she is always ahead of the family. Instead of being united with them.

As far as the abduction thing. I do not even like Kate one bit but I would never wish that on anyone or for anything to ever happen to her kids. I know a lady personally who lost through death not one child but 2 and it is something that I will never forget.

DeKonstruction Zlogger said...

I don't know Mona. There is indications on the internet that a tell all is coming. I think there will be many books, research papers done on the Gosselins in the future.

*Sugar&Spice* said...

Next time I will put in " hypothetically" Speaking. I'm not saying that Kate is that mentally unstable. That she would do anything for attention.

I'm stating a proven fact. The kids DO NOT HAVE BODYGUARDS. WHY??? They are more important than Kate and Jon when they go out. The children need to be protected at all times. Being in the spotlight all child actors have some kind of bodyguard staff around them sometimes for protection.

You cant tell me that Kate, Steve the dweeb, Jon, nannies, sitters, Tlc staff and etc. Know self defense and how to protect against suspicious people.

I might be a little overprotecting saying this. But they need protection. They are in the public eye.

SchmeckyGirl said...

Sugar Spice,

I'm had no problem with what you said about the kids not having bodyguards and that there may be a chance for abduction. I'm sure it's possible even if it is just a remote possibility.

I commented regarding your writing "Gezz whom am I kidding maybe in Kate's sick mind. She wouldnt mind having one of them taken from her. Just so she can get in the spot light once again".

While I agree that Kate loves attention and even gets it based on her children, etc I think saying something like that is going too far. There is no evidence that Kate seems like the type that would harm or hope for harm for her children so that she gets attention.

While I agree that filming her children's daily lives IS harming them, I do think that Kate most likely doesn't think it is harming them. I'm not sure why she doesn't see it. Even if she does think it's possible that it is not in their best interest, I think that is different than hoping that a stranger abducts and/or harms her children.

But since I compared the two, I will say that I find it very upsetting that Kate ignores the professional opinions that these children need their private lives to be private.

I don't understand how a mother doesn't do everything she can to find out what kind of affect it could have on her children now and in the long run. How can she just dismiss the potential harm to her children's emotional well-being? As Kate said, "I don't get it".

I posted this on another blog but I don't think it went through.

Is it a conincidence, or what? There is an article in a Pittsburgh paper today about a local set of sextuplets (the Perry's) who ran a 1-mile Kid's Marathon (pre-Pittsburgh Marathon) yesterday.

If Kate doesn't have a Number, it mean she didn't pay the $25 fee. Which means she didn't help the cause at all.

Which mean PUBLICITY STUNT.

French Canadian said...

I'm not surprise if she didn't pay...Maybe she just run 10 minutes, who knows...maybe 5

SchmeckyGirl said...

SG,

I was using Kate's "I don't get it" voice to say that I personally don't get it.

As for Kate not getting it, sometimes I really think she doesn't get it. She still thinks she said nothing wrong to Tony during the rehearsals. She still defends it in interviews.

jibberjabbers...of course, I (we) should have known she just jumped into the 'race' for about 2-3 min. at the end, for filming purposes. So Cara got 1/8 of 15% earnings on that run.

Anonymous said...

As much as I dislike and that is a mild word for how I feel about Kate Gosselin, I agree with SchmeckyGirl regarding the fact that I don't think she would ever harm or wish harm on her children. As a Mom who was always picking up, kissing and hugging her little girl, what strikes me most about Kate is how she is always at arms' length with her kids...the most affection I ever see is her holding a hand. I so cannot stand her. Judy

French Canadian said...

If I had to run 5 miles, I would of made a pony tail, not loose hairs...another reason why I think she didn't run that much

jibberjabbers said...

Looks like kaydar edited the video of Cara and Steve out... Because when I 1st saw the video, Kate stopped, waited for Cara to run by and said "good job Cara"...

I guess after everyone was complaining about Kate was running off w/o Cara, Kaydar decided to edit that part out.

AuntieAnn said...

Thanks jj. I wondered about that earlier. We should know by now Kate is exempt from putting out money for charity. I suppose she thinks merely appearing there is worth its weight.

'Dancing with the Stars:' Pamela Anderson called 'best performer' by Bruno Tonioli (video)

Pamela is probably the best performer in the show. The truth of the matter is that her performances are so focused. She's so on it, it's brilliant. She acts the part. … Dance just is not just a series of steps. Dance is a performing art.

"Technically, she's not bad either. She's quite good. Obviously, when we go toward the finals, she has to step up that side."

The 11th to 22nd place and the report that it only sold 10,000 copies, just proves there is much more to the NY Times best sellers list than we know. But, I have to wonder what?

I see the "book" sales ranked at 735th on Amazon and at 1,980th on Barnes and Nobel. So there are at the very least 734 books selling better than this trash but they are not on the list.

marnie said...

I highly doubt Kate actually ran a 5k race. It was 90 degrees here yesterday, and I doubt Kate is a runner and has trained for such a race. This was a publicity stunt, pure and simple - ITA also that this was for filming the new show. They desperately need storylines. She would NEVER have done something like this without cameras rolling, come on!

my9cats said...

Somewhere, I believe it is on this site, there is a comprehensive explanation of book publishers, best seller lists, including the NYT. Very informative. If not here, try Preesi's site.

Love it, it was 90 degrees here and the kids are in jeans...those kids are never dressed for the right temp...

I just watched the video with Michael Yo and Kate. I am guessing that Mr. Yo's heritage is Asian, Hawaiian, South Seas, Inuit - definitely non-Caucasian.

So why is Kate's skin the exact same color?

Kelly said...

AuntieAnnie,
The only reason Kate wasn't wearing a number is because the number 1 was already taken and Kate had a hissy fit.

Anymore questions?

PJ's momma said...

I was at Target today and saw the book. I was surprised at how thin it is and much of it is pictures. I didn't bother to peruse it much, but it's not much of a book at all. And it was 30% off!
Regarding Kate's run, 5K is actually 3.1 miles. I could do that with my eyes closed and wouldn't get so hot that I had to strip my shirt, especially at the jogging pace she was maintaining (although I give props to anyone who does these events). I did a half marathon last June and it was HOT, but I was fine in my fitted shirt/bra. It actually catches/absorbs a lot of sweat, which going shirtless prevents. I feel uncomfortable with rivulets of sweat running down my neck/back all the way to my shorts. A shirt helps with that, big time. I just don't understand her.

barbee said...

The deal with the NY Times Best Seller list is they count # of books shipped to sellers I believe (and said sellers can ship back what doesn't sell - which will be most of this drivel). However, that type of list doesn't seem to make any sense.
Super tramp 'running' was surely just a photo op and since without a # means no entry fee paid, WELL, big surprise, she didn't pay, she didn't actually run the whole race.
And I loved all the comments about her not wearing a # because they didn't have #1 or couldn't hang #0 on her big boops.
Would someone PULEEEEESE tell her that those
baby doll dresses are not flattering on someone over 14, they over accentuate the inflatted boops and make her look pregnant. GIVE IT UP, katie irene, you're not lookin to good any more. Toooooo much beautification ends up looking tacky.

The only explanation I can think of for her to be dressed differently than other runners and for not wearing a number is that her participation wasn't genuine; she isn't really a runner (despite her remarks about running on the treadmill every morning) and doesn't know how to properly dress and she was there for reasons other than to support the cause and run with her daughter.

Others have speculated why she participated and I agree with them all -- it was for her show, or to rehab her image as a mom, or rehab her image in the community and/or rehab her image of not giving back.

There seems to be a theme to my remarks - rehab her image - IMO, she participated for no other reason than image and self promotion. How sad that Cara couldn't have run with someone who was interested in spending quality time with HER.

You know, I agree with you, Sugar. I always stayed very close to my kids and they're not even famous...seems as though the children are the ones who should be protected.

AuntieAnn said...

Kelly,
Thanks, I knew that was coming ;)
In the thought balloon above my head, I imagined Kate driving around in her land cruiser when suddenly she spotted a camera, jumped out and ran along with the crowd until she got into range of the photographer. Her automatic reaction - not unlike one of her 'gut instincts'.

LancasterCountyMom said...

Just fyi, the Girls' Run was held on an enclosed (fenced in, with bleachers) 1/4 mile track here in Lancaster. (In fact, I used to go running there a few times a week several years ago.)

AuntieAnn said...

LancasterCounty,
Have there always been houses with parked cars on the curb in front within the enclosed area? Looks more like they're running down the middle of a residential street to me. Was this a different run than reported?

Anonymous said...

AuntieAnn...

You're correct. The run was held in downtown Lancaster, in the residential area around Franklin and Marshall College, and through the campus -- not in an enclosed area. I was there. I believe there's a website -- google New Balance Girls on the Run, Lancaster, the info is probably still up.

LancasterCountyMom said...

oh, sorry. They must have had it in the area on the other side of the F&M campus. I'll have to go look at the video, I looked at the advertising for the event and thought it was at the stadium. (Williamson Field)

Anonymous said...

Maybe this was being filmed for TWISTED kHate - I could see the woman she was running with being one of the "contestants" on her new They Just Love Me show, and Cara was just dragged along for appearances.

Laurie said...

OK, I do the treadmill thing every day - at least two miles at 3.4. I tried to "run" around my block once (which is exactly 1/2 mile) and couldn't even make it half the distance. Doing the treadmill and actual "running/jogging" are two entirely different things.

Maybe this was being filmed for TWISTED kHate - I could see the woman she was running with being one of the "contestants" on her new They Just Love Me show, and Cara was just dragged along for appearances.

As far as the book. No kidding the letters are falling! And, Khate kan't get up!

If Khate did this to film a segment for Khate plus 8 & used Cara that is terrible but that is Khate.
If Khate did it to spend time with Cara great.

If Khate did it for PR purposes well, there again bad...that's khate!

AuntieAnnie,
The only reason Kate wasn't wearing a number is because the number 1 was already taken and Kate had a hissy fit.

Anymore questions?

As Kate said, "I don't get it".

SG, do you think she really doesn't get it, or does she just pretend to not get it if it's convenient?

Just adding that I didn't see Steve and Cara in the clip because ROL's "main" clip is just a few seconds of Kate running alongside some woman. Had to go to a secondary clip to see Cara and Steviepoo. J.

Where can one see this vid?

jibberjabbers...of course, I (we) should have known she just jumped into the 'race' for about 2-3 min. at the end, for filming purposes. So Cara got 1/8 of 15% earnings on that run.

I posted this on another blog but I don't think it went through.

Is it a conincidence, or what? There is an article in a Pittsburgh paper today about a local set of sextuplets (the Perry's) who ran a 1-mile Kid's Marathon (pre-Pittsburgh Marathon) yesterday.

I'm behind the times here. Is there really a book coming out? A real book that will expose the Gosselin story? Or is this just a joke?
