Unless she's planning to kick off those shoes, I don't know what kind of playing Kate plans to do with her kids and that big inflatable ball. Once she gets it pumped up (that is a pump in her hand, right?) I'm guessing the white plastic chair and the pink phone will come out.

lolly said...

It's 90 degrees and the kids are in jeans...I guess the folks from wardrobe didn't show up...

Kelly said...

Oh PLEASE, give me a break. The caption from the PAPS should read, KATE Plays with Camera's outside. How much longer does she think the public want's to see these shots of the kids in front of the garage, rolling a tired old medicine ball on the driveway in a 50 square foot play area?

Really, they have the crooked houses out of view from the camera lens, a swingset behind the garage complete with a fort and a sliding board and not to mention 26 FRIGGIN ACRES to play in where the P PEople can't see them.

Kate doesn't know how to play with the kids. The Kids don't know how to play with the kids. Everyday at the Gosselin house is like watching a WWF match, complete with the kids hitting each other, Kate yelling and toys and props being used as weapons.

fidosmommy said...

I checked out the rest of the pictures. All I can say at this time is 1) Kate points whenever she's with her kids and 2) She must really LIKE
hair that sticks straight out from her scalp. I thought the stick-up hair was a thing of the past, but apparently not.

Oh well, hair and shoes are not the measure of a woman. Quality time spent with loved one is.

She has donned her Alice in Wonderland outfit.

TLC must be reading the blogs....

prairiemary said...

You are so right,kelly!Why did they bother buying 26 acres, when all she ever does is have them in the front of the house,in front of the dam garage?! Maybe she could make some more money if she just sub-divided the "backyard", it seems like it doesn't get used anyway, by doing that,she could save even more money,by not needing her gardener/groundskeeper!

jibberjabbers said...

So she's doing what every parent does with their kids every now and then... What does she want? A trophy? A parade in her honor? LOL

Kelly said...

I hate to always sound like a sourkate, but damn, let's be real. I've raised three kids. Their mother was always hands on and NEVER dressed in babydoll dresses around the house. She wore jeans and appropriate clothing to play with the kids and get down on the grass, swing on a swing with them, play catch with them and all the things MOST mothers do with their kids.

I've been divorced for over 10 years now and although we couldn't make our relationship work, I'll give my ex, KUDOS, hands down, on the interaction she had with our kids growing up. She was a hands on Mom and she never put her pride, her appearance or her selfish desires ahead of our kids needs.

Granted, when we had our date nights and hired a babysitter to watch our kids, she looked HOT and dressed the part. She didn't act like Kate when the kids were involved or their needs had to be met.

Kelly said...

jibberjabbers,
she doesn't want a trophy or a parade. She just wants to stay in front of the camera's. A year from now, when Kate can't PAY the camera's to take her picture, she'll probably opt for her own internet cam site where those who worship her can still worship her. It will be called,
"Kate's Up Late, NO eight, Let's MATE"

Why subdivide when renting space to the photogs is so much easier?

overthehill said...

that dress is ridiculous

escrow said...

gawd awful orange babydoll from last summer has returned.

DeKonstruction Zlogger said...

Yes, Overthehill there is a pap shot with that line that show her cheeks almost.

Another day, another photo op at the Orphanage.

French Canadian said...

I'm under the impression that they are trying to change her image.

My father use to travel a little bit when I was young and when he came back I was all over him for weeks.

Those children dont't look happy at all with her.

Anonymous said...

I don't quite understand why they give Jon such a hard time about just wandering around with the kids when she does the same, oh wow she got lemonade for them.. woopla.
At least Jon seems to play with them and pick them up once in a while... kick a ball... or play with toys around... she just sits on the steps most of the time or as mentionned on the white plastic chairs... they could afford to have their gardener or landscaping people plant so many trees no pap could get a shutter worth a penny.

Anonymous said...

BINGO, French Canadian...those kids NEVER look happy when they are with her; and she never looks happy when she is with the kids. At least when the kids are with Jon, we see smiles and laughter...not to mention actual human contact. Judy

mary said...

my 6 year old and his friend played with the hose for about 3 hours today. I bet they had more fun than those gosselin kids. At least they were dressed in summer clothes since it hit 90 degrees today. (or it felt like it)

cherier1 said...

No way any mom I know would wear that to play in the yard with her kids. Baby Doll dress and heeled sandals? Gimme a break. Most moms I know wear shorts and a T. And they're not new forming fitting designer duds either. Play clothes for kids; play clothes for mom (and dad).

SchmeckyGirl said...

Were the kids really inside that plastic ball in 90 degree weather?

I think they will always play in the front of the house because it seems that at least one child is always on a bike. She can't leave them in the front and take the rest out back.

The property they bought is just not right for them. They need one that is more private.

I personally think there should be a law against photographing someone when they are in their own property unless they are in the act of committing a crime or somehow infringing in your rights and you take photographic evidence.

cherier1 said...

Schmecky - we have a blue ball just like it and it gets HOT in there fast. The kids don't stay in it long on a hot day!

I agree about pap restrictions on private property. I don't care if they are shooting from public property into private property. Something needs to be done about this. There should be NO shooting of children by paps.

itsaboutthekids said...

The bottom line is, if Kate and/or Jon is in the front yard playing with the kids and there are paparazzi at the fence, then they obviously WANT to be photographed. If privacy was that important to them then they would find a way to keep it private. It's not that difficult. When Jon and Kate go away, the paparazzi will go away, and then luckily for the kids, no one will care where they play.

fidosmommy said...

Wouldn't it have been a beautiful day to have some friends come over to play in the yard and in the Crooked Houses?

PatK said...

After the pictorial fiasco with that dress last summer, one would think she'd have gotten rid of it.

Oh, wait...

BabyDollKateAin't! said...

How do you know the pap shooting the pics isn't working on retainer (cough-cough) say in association with TLC or some other entity (e.g. Kate and/or Jon's public relations firm, agent, etc.)? We already know there isn't a pack of photographers camped outside the Gosselin home. Just a lone pap and occasional interloper.

Robin said...

This blog is fantastic!
I posted a comment on some other blog yesterday, but it seems like all they do is talk about their own vacations, usually to Disney! BORING it's like being trapped in someone's elses stupid vacation slideshow...

Kate needs to start mothering. Or perhaps get a T-shirt that reads "I'm NOT A MOTHER but I play one on TV!"

IDModo said...

Schmecky Girl- Kate has enough help that if one of the tups wanted to ride a bike and the others didn't, one of the nannies could be there, and the other kids could play in the backyard.They have 26 acres.The only time we actually see them playing is when they're with Jon; when they are with Kate they just seem to be standing around in a clump.

itsaboutthekids said...

Whether it's TLC, free-lance paparazzi or every day fans, the Gosselins have 23 acres. If they want privacy they can surely find it in the much space. Obviously, they like the cameras shooting their picture. Unfortunately, the kids don't get to, but really they shouldn't even be required to, vote on this. Their parents should be their protectors; their first line of defense that shields them from all harm including exploitation. You can spin that however you like, but all I see is them ENCOURAGING and continually thrusting their children into the limelight. JMHO.

AuntieAnn said...

TLC can very well afford to pour a cement pad about the size of a baseball diamond in the backyard for those kids to play on and ride their bikes. They can build a waterpark, probably a roller coaster and maybe even lay down tracks for a choo-choo train if they wanted to, but they don't want to. And gee, I wonder why.

NancyB said...

I agree with all of you about this front yard playing area baloney. Didn't WG report that the reporter source confirmed that anytime that Jon or Kate were in the front yard with the kids that it was on purpose. They know exactly what they are doing. Actively exploiting their children for photo ops. It's amazing how space Kart devoted in her book about herself to their so called total invasion of privacy. It was very melo-dramatic in her book. Actually, pretty funny.

PaMa said...

I don't buy Kate's excuse that they have to be in the front yard because the kids want to ride their bicycles. With her income, she could easily afford the couple thousand dollars it might take to put down a bike path around the backyard, out of sight of the cameras.

Liisa K. said...

Funny... that bouncy ball looks like it would a hell of a lot of fun IN THEIR ENORMOUS BACKYARD!!!! Away from cameras!! Geesh, what a media whore this woman is. She even has to turn her childrens playtime into a photo op. Classic Khate.

Wiley C said...

I wish I saw some exuberance from those kids. Evidently they missed the crew more than they missed Kate.
Kate/TLC, since you're reading this you might want to give up the front yard photo ops. It's really more comedic relief for us than positive PR. Nice try though.

Liisa K. said...

Or better yet, why not plant a beautiful tree line along that fence that borders the road? They could plant some really tall firs or some other bushy tree, problem solved.

itsaboutthekids said...

Jon and Kate are just a speck in the bigger issue. And, to me, that issue is how we treat our children; as commodities, or as precious gifts. WE, each of us as individuals, are responsible for the survival of our world. And as mundane as it might sound it is a very real fact, our children ARE our future.

AuntieAnn said...

French Canadian said...
"Those children dont't look happy at all with her".


Nor does she look happy with the kids. She's obviously upset because the nanny asked her to watch them a minute while she ran to the bathroom.

lolly said...

The giant ball is the same one Jon bought last month...there were pics of he and the kids playing...in the front yard of course!

heide said...

But in the pics with Jon and the giant ball, the kids were laughing and looked like they were having fun. Unlike how they look in the pictures with Kate.

Denise said...

lolly, I agree. The difference was the kids were smiling and laughing!

laurajean said...

Those kids just look so sad.

lifeoriley said...

If Kate "hates" the paps so much, why play where they can see you? I agree with other posters (and have commented myself on other blogs) that they could easily afford to plant a line of evergreens blocking the view of the garage. Many types grow well (and relatively quickly) in this area.
Also, a bike path that runs around the house (with security cameras?) would also solve the "problem."
A babydoll dress that blows up in the breeze is not exactly the most practical thing to wear when playing outside with your kids--esp. if you know that you are going to be photographed.

my9cats said...

Per WG, playing in the driveway is a photo op,
when that's done the kids play in the back.

Barbara in VA said...

Kart is a joy-sucker. Anytime she sees the potential for her kids (or Jon and her kids) to have fun, she begins to suck it out before they get too happy. Her sour puss, her flaunting her "heiny" while rolling the big ball (too obvious, Kart). She makes me sick to my stomach.

All my friends are about the same age as Kart and although we wear sun dresses to parties, to the mall, out to dinner, when any of us is going out to "play" with the kids, we have on appropriate clothing to actually get down in the dirt and the fun.

I don't buy the bike riding as being why this idiot makes her kids play on the driveway. You know what? With all that money, she could have a cement bike riding track snaking all over the back yard and in and out of the woods if she wanted to. Can you imagine the fun the kids would have on that? Oh, sorry, but then the cameras couldn't see them.... She's a terrible person.

cherier1 said...

WG has a new post up.

overthehill said...

wonder if the children ever have friends over to play.
why on gods earth do they play in front of the garage

IDModo said...

The tabloids are apparently reporting that Kate's assistant is out in LA looking for accommodation, and that Kate and the kids will be moving out there by the end of summer, with Jon to follow. If true, this would explain Jon's 3 month lease on his new apartment.I bet they are looking for a property with a large paved space in front of the garage...
Has anyone else heard this? I saw it on WG.
Do you suppose somebody has offered Kate a chance at a movie? ("Leer- Stick with me, little lady, and I'll make you a star!")Maybe someone is doing a remake of The Sound Of Music..or Snow White? Kate would make an excellent Wicked Queen, and the kids could all sing HiHo as they joyfully went off to work in the Gosselin salt mine.

SwingsandRoundabouts said...

Can anyone remember a time, an incident, an event where the kids were laughing loudly and exuberantly? Or where they had uncontrollable giggles and just couldn't stop? I'd really like to know. TIA

overthehill said...

did kate leave the plastic throne in the other garage?

IDModo said...

Oops, I got it wrong. The Assistant is checking out LA schools and attempting to get sitcom gigs for the kids. HiHo everybody.

TeamKids said...

Let's vote for Jon!

Well that shouldn't surprise anyone. She proven she's a useless maladroit who couldn't find her own feet on the dance floor, doesn't write worth a damn and can't say a word on television without an earpiece. It would be just like her to drag the kids out to Hollywood so they can work to keep on supporting her.

Anonymous said...

Honestly I could care less what Kate wears, be it a dress or a burlap bag. I'm ALWAYS hoping (against hope) that time she spends with her children is because she WANTS to, not because someone is around to either videotape said play, or snap a pap pic to sell to ROL (likely per contract, 15 minutes minimum playtime on the driveway at least 3x per week).

I hope that the majority of the public is wrong wrong wrong, and that these kids end up healthy happy well adjusted young adults 10 years down the road. I do believe they love their parents, and I want to believe their parents love them. I hope it's not all for show.

Khate Ain't Great said...

Kate Gosselin in Wernersville is a big fish in a small pond. She doesn't want the small town life, with neighbors bringing her a "welcome" plate of homemade cookies upon moving in, or chatting with Mrs. Smith when walking down to get the mail. SHE thinks she'll be happier and "fit in" better, should she move to LA - CA.

If she DOES move to the west coast, she'll find that she's now a very small fish in a great big ocean. She'll find the anonymity she claims she wants. Nobody will look twice at Kate when Angelina is grocery shopping at Hollywood Whole Foods. And the only homemade cookies will be 24.99/dozen at the gourmet bakery with yet another actress-wannabe behind the counter, waiting on the actress-wannabe weird lady with all those kids, wasn't she on a reality show or something?

The rumor about Kate moving to LA has been around for a month or so - ever since DWTS started. I guess it's being "rehashed" for whatever reason - I guess to get people talking about Kate.

I hope Kate has lots of money for a home in LA. Its an expensive place to live.

socr8s said...

To own a home with all the amenities of her current home would cost around 6mil in LA and that isn't even Beverly Hills. The homes with acreage in BH are around 15 to 20mil.
She'll be living in the burbs again and be a minnow in the ocean vs being a whale in a pond as she is now.
