Chicken Coops/Work Day and Kids Play -- 7/11/10 Discussion Thread

Should a six-year-old use power tools? It is cruel to transport chickens in a cardboard box? How long will the chickens last before they go the way of the German Shepherds? How many licks does it take to get to the end of a Statue of Liberty pop?

As for "Work Day and Kids Play," TLC sure is desperate to convince us the kids are just playing but Kate is working, huh! They've even made it an episode title. Too funny.

Or maybe you're not watching at all. Discuss that and more here.

Kate gives some of her same ole same ole. This is the perfect job for her...her kids are by her side. blah blah blah....

You see this interview & then compare to the paparazzi photos of kids being brought (I say dragged) around NYC in sweltering heat because this contract honorer is going to make these kids "WORK" the family job.
I did find interesting Kate compared her children's experiences (that they have had more than she had that young or something like it) to theirs. Narcissist just flies out of this mom every time she talks.

The idea for the Chickens??? Carla...Ok fine...but isn't that so peculiar that the chickens would make a show. Reminds me of the exiled dogs story. Only at least she will get organic eggs out of this.

Hawks Fan said...

Please let this be an empty thread.

Betsy said...

Sorry Hawk Fan but I have to at least comment on this Fame Ho as long as she puts herself out there for the public. Whats interesting is that this hen house is situated way in the back from the house. When there was a photo of the kids taken playing with the chickens with no shoes on I may add it was her good friend Chris the Pap who took it and ran with it. How did he get that pic unless he was invited to her lil ole party? Any other guesses?

Kelly said...

Organic eggs, my backside. If Kate is so health conscious, she'd know that eggs are a very high source of cholesterol and yet she claims to go through "a gizzion eggs"

Those kids arteries are going to be like Elmers Glue. At least Kate has the wine to thin her blood.

Betcha! said...

Ah but Kelly, that's not her plan (feeding the eggs to the kids). She will eventually SELL those eggs under the guise they came from HER 'farm' and therefore worth more, though likely not hormone-free. And she won't sell them by the dozen though - only in multiples of eight. ;P

Irene S said...

Yes, Why would a woman that watches everything she says to the media even admit to the "wine". I think there may be more she is willing to sell herself for before this is all over.



Not very bright. Ted worked hard on her hair. I remember Ted saying he wanted that hair out of her eyes. In the A/H interview it sure looks like she is slowly getting that crocheted mop back in her eyes.

Kelly said...

She's wanting the hair back in her eyes because the eyes are the mirror to the soul. Not only that but you can often detect when someone is lying, just through eye contact.

Troy Chula Vista said...

Just read a story on Jake/Vienna and thier 15 minutes. Fits Kate somewhat.

"There is an art to being famous for nothing. You MUST be likable, or have a scandal where you are the sympathetic character, or end up working with someone untouchable and beloved or be related to someone we adore (Nicole Richie) – this is why Spencer and Heidi didn't make a dime, why Octomom was shunned and why we adore Melissa Rycroft and Elizabeth Hasselbeck," explains 'Cult of Celebrity' author Cooper Lawrence. "Jake is a fame-seeking attention whore with no likable qualities and Vienna is worse. They aren't getting endorsement deals, book deals or anything that would make them big money because nobody would buy anything from them."

"So sadly for these two fame mongers, their fifteen minutes is about to be up. They could have stretched it into at least another 27 had they played their cards right, but at the end of the day, being a jerk isn't going to get you anywhere in Hollywood."

Kate is 1 step up becasue she has a network behind her helping her keep the flame burning, if she was on her own with an agent only she would be long forgotten.

mama mia said...

The chickens are props just like the kids, they will be fed, exercised and housed so long as they serve a purpose (lay eggs) but the second their feed starts attracting rats to the property (which it will) and the rooster crowing gets on boozy hung over Kate's last nerve (which it will) they will be gone in a flash. Wish one of these interviewers would ask about the beloved family dogs, er props.

ICSillyPeople said...

I agree, anyone with half a brain can see these chickens were used just to make an episode.

WHO is going to take care of these animals? Kids are kinda young and forgetful ... that leaves the nannies or Jamie. What happens in the winter? Will Kate trudge out to the coop with the feed .... I'd love to see that pic! Who is taking care of them now while Kate is on a Photo Sho .. ahhh errr ... I mean "family" vacation.

MickeyMcKean said...

I won't be watching and I hope and pray that others will join me and boycott Kate + 8 from this day forward.

To watch this new episode just to make snarky comments as to why Kate is on her roof in a skirt and not white shorts is not worth keeping the children WORKING.

So for the sake of the 8 Gosselin kids, please, please, please:

TO SAVE THE 8 DO NOT WATCH OR RECORD KATE + 8

JMO

Lauren said...

I won't be watching.

No You tube.
No TV

Hey TLC I haven't watched Kate since 2008.

Free Publicity said...

This looks like a teaser for the show. It sparks curiosity, like the preview of a new movie.

I'm with MickeyMcKean, for the sake of the 8, boycott the show. I'm sure there's not one new snarky comment that can be uttered.

Let Kate's star burn out.

NO MORE FREE PROMOTION

cathy518 said...

Put me on the list of the Irish Clan that would never watch ANYTHING that Kate Gosselin is in. It never ceases to amaze me that some of those who frequent these blogs do watch her shows. It doesn't matter to Kate or TLC whether you are a fan or an anti-fan, if you watch, you are helping the exploitation of these children to continue. No viewers equals no show for Kate.
So please don't watch, this stuff will be up on you tube after a while and won't count towards being a viewer. No lame excuses either, like "I was just holding this TV remote for a friend and Kate's show popped on"
I believe that Kate's Linda Lovelace NY show was designed to outrage folks, getting them to tune in to see what's next.
If only Kate's fans watched her appearances, she would be immediately cancelled. There are not enough people who watch her because they like her to continue her TV career.
This has just got to end. Speaking of ending, does anyone know what ever happened to "Twist of Kate" if there ever was such a show in the works?

SchmeckyGirl said...

"How many licks does it take to get to the end of a Statue of Liberty pop?"
--------------------------------
LOL!!!

Laurie said...

If she has a "farm" instead of an orphanage.... er, estate, doesn't she get some sort of tax break?

SchmeckyGirl said...

I think the chickens could be good for the kids. I hope the kids are good for the chickens though. I think they will be as long as they remember they are living creatures and not toys. I hope the chickens don't get neglected with Kate's "busy life and career."

I won't be watching the show either. Not on tv anyway. Maybe later on the internet...

prairiemary said...

Does anyone think she would ever put her "china dolls" on Toddlers and Tiaras?

Anne said...

SchmeckyGirl said...

Hopefully they've been taught how to property treat animals which was not evident when I last saw with the puppies or kittens.

I'm with the non-watchers, non-link clickers, non-You Tube crowd. The 15 minutes has gone on far too long and I'm done.

mary said...

I won't watch. Haven't watched since, well I can't even remember. Well I do remember the tups were about 3 and Kate yelled and rolled her eyes at Jon a lot. Gee, that's every single show. How can people watch this drivel. I agree her meltdown a-la-brittney is an interesting train wreck. Though it looks like Mel Gibson and the Lohans have taken the spotlight. It's sadder with Kate because of those 8 children. I truly think she is narcissist and she hates them. JMO

SchmeckyGirl said...

Wow, Mary, you really think Kate hates her children? I've never thought that. I just think she is too selfish to put their interests first. Sometimes I think she just doesn't care, other times I think she really thinks she is doing everything for them, or that the narcissist in her tells her she is.

I can't tell you how many times I've had to hear my mother say that she gave up everything for us... her girls were her life... everything she did was for us... My mother lived a relatively easy life while she had us. She didn't "sacrifice" anything. She didn't go without food on her plate so we could eat. She didn't go without nice things so that we could have nice things. My sisters and I still have no clue what she is referring to. We think it's something she keeps saying to convince us or even herself of something, not even sure what.

Kelly said...

The chickens will last as long as they are good for a photo shoot and a check for Kate. Not long after that, Carla will come over and tell Kate she got a Fox to protect her chickens at night and then Kate will say, GOOD IDEA.

When Kate gets her fox, then Carla will come over and tell Kate she got Cougar to keep her fox company at night since he's been lonely since the chickens disappeared and then Kate will say GREAT IDEA. Then one morning, Carla will come over and ask Kate what she was doing spending the night with the fox. Kate, the narcisist that she is will tell Carla, "You gave me the idea"

Amy said...

Oh yeah, lil old Carla, I forgot that she was once Kates Bestest friend way back when. What has become of that ole Golpher? Never see them go to concerts, shopping or in the show of the Gosselins anymore..whats happened to her bestest friends of the past?

cathy518 said...

Inquiring minds want to know......
I thought You-tube was OK, didn't help her ratings but it sounds like I might be wrong???
Also, who is Carla?

Anonymous said...

When asked about Jake and Vienna, Kate said she did not know the details of why they broke up- she was too busy focusing on her dancing- lol. She did say that if we all stopped talking about it, it would all go away! So if we all stop talking about Kate- will she go away?! Pretty please with sugar on top!

Barbara said...

Mickey, I'm not watching, that's for sure. I don't even have an inkling of interest in watching her. Just seeing the video on here is enough to make you want to puke. Kate is so impressed with herself and that chicken croak was pitiful. She wants so desperately to think she is so famous. What she is, is infamous. What a difference!

Kelly said...

Tomorrow night, I'll be watching Good Ole HBO. I will admit that I will be watching TLC for the final episode of Deadliest Catch on Tuesday as this is the final episode and the farewell to Captain Phil Harris. RIP. That is good programming.

Administrator said...

Cathy:

Carla=Kate's best friend forever until she wasn't. Carla and her teenage kids apparently helped take care of the babies and were willing to be basically Kate's bitch so their life was longer around her. She did a lot of babysitting and it was reported that the twins confided in her they didn't want to film anymore, to which she gave them a pep talk they would just have to bear it. I remember there was an episode where Kate and Jon were fighting about not paying her daughter for babysitting because someone forgot to get cash. I remember thinking so you just let the babysitter go without paying her? Really classless. Go run to an atm if you have to but you need to pay her.

I believe she had a short lived blog that defended Kate if I'm not mistaken, that is now private. Carla hasn't been seen in awhile.

A lot of sheeple say we're complaining that we want Kate to have friends and when Jamie shows up we're still not happy. They're missing the point. A girlfriend is usually not someone you USE. She does not show up at your door to basically be your bitch with free babysitting and free errand running and practically move in with you for weeks and weeks and weeks. That's an employee or a bitch or something, not a girlfriend. The situation with Jamie is NOT NORMAL if this is just a friend. Jame is acting as an employee, ok fine. Kate needs girlfriends that she just meets up with for lunch no strings attached. No requirement they babysit or be on her show or travel with her. Girlfriend beyond people paid to be around her. Lunches that are not also business meetings. We've seen a lot of things but we've never seen that. Hopefully it's happening.

Anonymous said...

Seriously, who wants to listen to Kate shriek and scream through the whole episode. And a short skirt while you are working on the roof, really? Who does that?

Kelly said...

Kate also invoked Carla's name in one of the threads above telling Access Hollywood that Carla came over and gave Kate the idea to get chickens and Kate thought that was a great idea because, as Kate says "we eat a gazillion eggs". So, Kate invokes a name from the past to make everyone see and hear that she has friends. Friends from the past who want to stay in touch with this pit bull and friends in the future that want to pet this rattle snake.

Kate's only friends are her ATM card, her direct deposit from TLC and her agent who is squeezing the rating lifeblood out of Kate like a Proctor and Gamble Juicer.

Like the Montgomery Gentry Song, "Gone Like Yesterday", Kate's friends are gone.

fidosmommy said...

The last time I saw Carla was at the little ones' 5th birthday party. She and her daughter Ashley were in camera frame a few seconds and were actually acknowledged on camera while they slaved away at party decorations. After that we saw Ashley on the trip to North Carolina
and there was word that she had returned to babysitting duty at the Gosselins this summer.
I haven't seen Carla at all.

cathy518 said...

Thanks admin,for the explanation as to who Carla is or was supposed to be. There sure is something phony about Jamie and Kate's friendship. It reminds me of two middle schoolers who try to dress alike and act alike and be BFFs forever. No doubt Jamie is being compensated for her time, or maybe she is just another fame whore trying to ride Kate's coattails.
This is one sickening mess. God save those kids.

PatK said...

It's my opinion that Carla and Kate still have a friendship, but perhaps Carla has simply decided to stay out of the spotlight. I also recall having read that Carla's daughter was seen with the kids earlier this summer.

Pamela said...

Carla still has her blog. She never ever mentions Kate.

Last month she showed a photo of a stack of books she said she has been reading over the past 2 months. None of them were Kate's book.

Barbara said...

At that 5th birthday part that Carla was helping at, every time you saw her she had a very serious frown on her face. She did not look happy. She does still have a blog and I read it from time to time. She never mentions Kate on it. She has a very active life and is what appears to be a very committed Christian. I say appears to be because it is hard to believe anyone would be friends on any level with Kate and support what she is doing with those children. Although if she did speak up to Kate she would, of course, be kicked to the curb in a flash. And really, I suppose all anyone can do FOR Kate is to pray for those children. But here's another thing -- if it was Carla's idea about the chickens for filming, then she is in favor of exploiting those children just like Kate is.

Barbara said...

Obviously I meant birthday party.... sheesh.

Real stars got married.....no paps said...

How is it Carrie Underwood, John Krasinski and Carmelo Anthony ALL got married today with NO PAPS but yet Kate can't even go to Target in RURAL PA without them. Just confirms our theories that she calls them and that the one kid is on TLC's payroll.....She just looks more and more like an idiot everyday. If you go to Radaronline, X17 etc it's ALL REALITY stars and well right now Mel Gibson. But mostly it's reality stars not real ones. The real celebrities with talent like Carrie Underwood must LOVE all these reality idiots b/c it's keeps the paps away from them!

Babsy said...

I don't think Carla 'gave' Kate the idea. Kate probably thought,"if Carla can have chickens and a garden and do all of the money-saving stuff she does, well I can do it better."

Carla seems as if she has better things to do than worship at Kate's NYC dirt-covered feet and probably keeps her distance. Since no one knows what goes on behind closed doors, no one can say whether or not Carla feels that Kate has spun out of control or feels that Kate,Jon & TLC are exploiting the kids. Maybe she has talked to Kate about what she is doing to the family/kids -- as a Christian, I am sure Carla is in prayer about the whole family. And maybe Ashley still baby-sits so that she can keep an eye on the kids and be a steady person in their lives... I just don't think Carla should be slammed for not going public since we just don't know what she thinks, does or has done. For all we know, she, Beth & Jodi are behind the scenes fighting for those kids.

Barb In Nebraska said...

What I don't get is that this new friend, Jamie, has abandoned her own children for the summer! That's crazy. Money must speak loudly to her. Or did she lose custody of her children when she divorced her husband?

Maybe her children spend the summer with their father. It's rather common in divorce cases, but of course it's much more fun to claim she's abandoned them, right?

summermom said...

I live in a summer beach resort. I was walking down the boardwalk last night and noticed nobody dressed the way Kate dresses. Not one person with a child dresses that way. I don't get it.

lalalinda said...

Jamie has a hard, used look to her... seems like she is doing anything for a buck...even carrying Katie Ks gross shoes...

JudyK said...

Don't forget The Next Food Network Star is on tonight from 8-9:30 p.m. CST--the same time as something else tonight...now, what was that other show...hmmm.

SyntheticKate said...

I will not being watching the show tonight. But I will add that in some episodes I have watched on You Tube over the past year, particlarly the last episode where Mady was calling her mother out for her hypocricy, the twins storming off in disgust at Kate, Collin hiding his eyes, the miserable looks on the kids' faces, their age, their privacy, their emotional well being, their mother's crazy erratic behavior, it is no wonder people are concerned over these kids. In general, I think people have been watching to validate what is so wrong with this show, IMO, however, I do agree that watching the show, only adds to a fan base which justifies Kate's continued support by TLC and associates, and of course ratings, which keeps this show afloat. We all know when left to her own devices (DWTS and The View), she has absolutely nothing to offer other than lies, narcissim, and a boost to her ego. Train wreck behavior is hard to turn away from. We are all hoping these kids will have a normal life, but human nature is that people want to give more examples of her horrible behavior towards her kids, and want to see the train wreck end.

Quite frankly, I don't think this will end soon, but will add that based on info posted on this web site, I think Kate is heading in a very bad direction. For the sake of the kids, I will not watch tonight, as I have not been in the past year, as I do agree that this circus will never end unless the ratings dive.

Maybe Kate can get a gig on the Intervention Show with Dr. Drew. Not talking alcohol addiction, but mostly attention addiction, although I don't think either she or Dr. Drew would ever get the point of the whole concept. I don't trust anyone to protect these kids at this point, least of all their parents. Sad but true.

In a crazy way, I think people don't trust Kate or Jon if the cameras go away, as there will be no accountablilty at all. However, these kids deserve to live out a normal life without all of the cameras and photographers. I can only imagaine how hard this is for them. They did not ask for this.

To the Gosselin 8, we are all behind you having the type of life you deserve.

AuntieAnn said...

Even if the viewer count is down to less than two million Kate will still stink up the tv screen. It's futile to keep telling people to stop watching, stop talking, stop reading to get that number down from 3 million. It will happen on it's own eventually. Look at LPBW - it started in 2006 and it's still on while it only averages about 1.6 million viewers per episode.

Right now TLC's in charge and they're not going to stop filming as long as they keep getting her to sign the contract. They've know they've snared a real freak and they'll use her until they're done with her.

And as long as she's still around I'll talk smack about her every time I see her ugly mug or read about her 'cuz she deserves it for exploiting her kids.

NancyB said...

I became even more repulsed with Kate when Carla was kind enough to unpack the kitchen in the new home and then ON TAPE Kate had the gall to acutally complain that Carla had not put things where they needed to be. That was overtly rude behavior. Gracious behavior is something Kate is not capable of, IMO.

When Kate did the remodel of her kitchen, it was mentioned that Carla BOUGHT the old cupboards. (which were quite nice hardwood and in very good condition, IMO) I just find it totally amazing that Kate sold her these, rather than gifting them to Carla. She had been such a loyal and very helpful friend who came through on short notice repeatedly. IMO, Kate is incapable of being a real friend to anyone.

Administrator said...

Oh Nancy, Kate thinks her own kids are here to sell them, why wouldn't she think her cabinets are here to sell too?

Lauren said...

Nancy and Admin - do both of you remember when the Gosselins moved into the new house and Kate threw a fit because she said there was mold in the refrigerator? She allegedly spent 4 hours cleaning up all the mold and had the gall to complain about this during a couch interview.

Then a couple episodes later, there was a brand new stainless steel fridge, probably courtesy of a TLC sponsor.

It was later learned that the house had a top to bottom, executive level cleaning which probably included the appliances - before the G's moved in.

This little stunt with the fridge was to play into Kate's obsessive compulsive, uber-organized mother image that TLC was trying to push on the sheeple.

I agree Nancy, I don't think Kate is able to be gracious and appreciative.

my9cats said...

Mary and SchmeckyGirl....

I also have felt for a long time that Kate hates (maybe resents is a better word)her children because deep down she knows she is a nobody without them. No 8-No Celebrity Kate.
Kate's survival is totally dependent on those kids. Without them she is a nothing.
In the same line I feel when J&K split up, she was shocked at how fast she was replaced by other women.
Who knows..... but her behavior has done nothing to make me feel otherwise.
Tonight I shall read a book on my nook. Last time I watched was Aug 2008.

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

Maybe Carla was one of last friends to provide free services, which Kate of course took for granted. It seems that now all people who have any contact with the kids have a contract, so they are not allowed to discuss anything about what goes on. TLC probably is now paying for any helpers with a confidentiality contract. So long to Carla who either did not agree to this, or who was replaced by TLC employees.

Administrator said...

I think it's hard when you have a history with the kids and have a relationship with them to turn around and throw their parents under the bus. No matter what they have done, Jon and Kate are their parents and the kids love them. I think if we really think about what it's like to be in the shoes of a nanny or anyone in their lives, you wouldn't want to upset the kids or cause the kids to feel betrayed by blabbing about their lives. Really anything you say about the parents is really about the kids, too, since they're so intertwined.

While I think Jodi had a lot of courage, I don't hold animosity toward Beth for making a different decision.

Judy said...

As much as I dislike Kate and think she stinks as a mother, and for that matter, was never a wife, I don't wish anything bad to happen to her.

I truly think that she doesn't need any help with that, she's doing it all on her own.

Kate is a very sick person, IMO , and shes ready to crash and burn at any time.

Sadly the world is going to see it happen and I guess that would make her happy.

She wants memories for the kids and that will be some kind of memory for eight little children to remember.

Anonymous said...

OK, but couldn't her teeth fall out?

That would be a memory.

It's my opinion said...

Babsy, so many people on blogs have stated, whined, complained that Beth, Carla, K's parents, other siblings, etc. should step up to the plate and do what I'm not sure? Expose her? She's been exposed. Most rational, clear thinking people see that Kate is narcissistic, selfish, greedy, spanks her kids, etc. I think most of these folks are just looking for a bit of juicy gossip that they might not have heard before.

Hah
The refrigerator??? Do not ever think for one moment the Witch spent 4 hours with Q-Tips cleaning a fridge. That is a joke.

Well I have an inside answer to that FABRICATED episode.

The cleaning crew were specifically told by TLC that the entire house was to be cleaned, EXCEPT the refrigerator and inside SPECIFIC cabinets in the kitchen. The Goose cannot lay a Golden Egg for TLC unless she has mold and a few mouse turds in a cabinet to shriek over. That was manufactured bitch/shriek material for the stupid American public/viewers.

All fake.

Cathy518 said...

Mary,SmeckyGirl and my 9 cats,
I agree that Kate resents her children, it is evidenced in every facial expression, every gesture and really every decision she makes.
I have always thought she resents them because she knows they will grow up and not be her "property" forever. Kate knows that someday, the party will be over. Here's hoping the kids can hang in there until then.

Khate, dear. we've been on to you for a very long time now.

PatE said...

I agree with so many posters here!

9cats....I was just thinking today that was drives Kkate is she wants/needs/craving to be important.

The tragedy is that she wanted multiples in order to feel important, and then when they were not enough, she had six! She layed in bed while Jon waited on her. NOW the six are NOT ENOUGH.

Pretty soon her kids will be leaving her and she will be lost. And not children hold their parents in high regard.

They don't even need memories....they have all their mother's nastiness on tape!!

Irene S said...

Love this review. This writer thinks the kids may be staging a prison break before long.
Personally, I think the Gosselin orphanage needs a new master.

So did they get the chickens so Kate can say she has a working farm and the kids are working like farm kids do?

I have recollections of helping ...read that WORKING (we did what we had to do, we were poor not making Mommy a star and living her millionaire dreams) at age 4 filling 5 gallon buckets of grain and dragging into the dairy area, feeding baby calves milk by bottles, cleaning the barn, etc....I bet anything Kate and TLC found a loophole in those chickens.

I believe she had a short lived blog that defended Kate if I'm not mistaken, that is now private. Carla hasn't been seen in awhile.

A lot of sheeple say we're complaining that we want Kate to have friends and when Jamie shows up we're still not happy. They're missing the point. A girlfriend is usually not someone you USE. She does not show up at your door to basically be your bitch with free babysitting and free errand running and practically move in with you for weeks and weeks and weeks. That's an employee or a bitch or something, not a girlfriend. The situation with Jamie is NOT NORMAL if this is just a friend. Jame is acting as an employee, ok fine. Kate needs girlfriends that she just meets up with for lunch no strings attached. No requirement they babysit or be on her show or travel with her. Girlfriend beyond people paid to be around her. Lunches that are not also business meetings. We've seen a lot of things but we've never seen that. Hopefully it's happening.

Wow, Mary, you really think Kate hates her children? I've never thought that. I just think she is too selfish to put their interests first. Sometimes I think she just doesn't care, other times I think she really thinks she is doing everything for them, or that the narcissist in her tells her she is.

I can't tell you how many times I've had to hear my mother say that she gave up everything for us... her girls were her life... everything she did was for us... My mother lived a relatively easy life while she had us. She didn't "sacrifice" anything. She didn't go without food on her plate so we could eat. She didn't go without nice things so that we could have nice things. My sisters and I still have no clue what she is referring to. We think it's something she keeps saying to convince us or even herself of something, not even sure what.

I won't be watching.

No You tube.
No TV

Hey TLC I haven't watched Kate since 2008.

What I don't get is that this new friend, Jamie, has abandoned her own children for the summer! That's crazy. Money must speak loudly to her. Or did she lose custody of her children when she divorced her husband?

I don't think Carla 'gave' Kate the idea. Kate probably thought,"if Carla can have chickens and a garden and do all of the money-saving stuff she does, well I can do it better."

Carla seems as if she has better things to do than worship at Kate's NYC dirt-covered feet and probably keeps her distance. Since no one knows what goes on behind closed doors, no one can say whether or not Carla feels that Kate has spun out of control or feels that Kate,Jon & TLC are exploiting the kids. Maybe she has talked to Kate about what she is doing to the family/kids -- as a Christian, I am sure Carla is in prayer about the whole family. And maybe Ashley still baby-sits so that she can keep an eye on the kids and be a steady person in their lives... I just don't think Carla should be slammed for not going public since we just don't know what she thinks, does or has done. For all we know, she, Beth & Jodi are behind the scenes fighting for those kids.

Thanks admin,for the explanation as to who Carla is or was supposed to be. There sure is something phony about Jamie and Kate's friendship. It reminds me of two middle schoolers who try to dress alike and act alike and be BFFs forever. No doubt Jamie is being compensated for her time, or maybe she is just another fame whore trying to ride Kate's coattails.
This is one sickening mess. God save those kids.

The last time I saw Carla was at the little ones' 5th birthday party. She and her daughter Ashley were in camera frame a few seconds and were actually acknowledged on camera while they slaved away at party decorations. After that we saw Ashley on the trip to North Carolina
and there was word that she had returned to babysitting duty at the Gosselins this summer.
I haven't seen Carla at all.
