Kate drags kids out for another day of filming in blistering NYC

Is Alexis cringing and holding her hand up against the paparazzi?

Day two of TLC/Kate's filming trip to New York with the kids, Jamie and Steve. Temperatures in NYC have been reaching record highs in the 100s. Kate had a mic on so we know they were filming.


As they come out of the hotel, Alexis is frowning and even looking quite distressed:

She looks off to her right at something:
Then she holds her hand out to the right like a traffic guard would to make people stop. Was a pap in her face taking her picture when she's hot and tired? We wish it would stop, too, baby Alexis.

Is that the $7,500 hairstyle? Kate, you were robbed!
And I swear that one of these days the not-an-implant is going to fall out of that top. The paps are going to have a field day!

Lily said...

I consider this to be child abuse. I wouldn't take my dog out in the heat of the day and keep him out like that!

Naomi said...

I have read this blog for awhile. I was a fan of the show until my husband and I noticed how cruel, bitter and mean Kate acted towards Jon, then we couldnt stomach to watch the show. Anyways her outfit in these pics are ridiculous!!! I have a daughter and son and would never imagine prancing around them hooker clothes. What a great example for her little girls.

Judy said...

Those poor children look so sad and miserable.
What 6 yr olds do you know that has to spend their summer vacation out in 100 plus degrees,dressed up like they're going to church,walking the streets with their hooker mother, while she's selling out their childhood for cash?
I'll swear that this has to be against the law !
If not, they need to write it.

Pat said...

OMG....those bazookas are going to explode in the heat!!

And clearly the kids, older now, are not going to put up with forced filming.

Kate, you gonna beat and threaten your kids to perform like little monkeys?

Naomi said...

Sorry for the typo's....just a long day playing with my babies.

NovaCath said...

Those poor children having to film in this heat and be subjected to unwanted cameras. That article with the pictures is truly cringe worthy. Who writes that nonsense and does the author think we are all as dumb as rocks to believe that nonsense? The children's expenses might be causing her financial problems-like she isn't making them work hard enough. They are in NYC filming for TLC yet we are supposed to believe that she is paying the hotel bill? The author of the article on Celebrity Gossip does not question what in the heck did she do with her DWTS money that is more than most of us make in a year or how much is spent on tanning, hair, and clothes. No, we are supposed to believe it is all the children's fault that she might have problems making the mortgage payments. Good grief.

Judy said...

After seeing that first pic of Kate...I just hope she has her life insurance paid up.
What the hell has she done to herself ?
She has turned into another Heidi and looks like crap. She looks like she's in deep trouble to me. And I don't mean mentally.We all know that she has had that problem for a long time.

All snarking aside...it is not going to surprise me when the announcement is made that she's had a breakdown. There is clearly something wrong there. She looks like death warmed over. How could someone deteriorate so drastically in a few short years, and why does she have to dress like she's ready to do a lap dance? What is wrong with her?

prairiemary said...

I don't want to be snarky, while these children are looking so stressed-but why doesn't she just go topless already! You can see her boobs nearly falling out! I am pretty sure the twins are plenty old enough to be mortified! All she needs now is a POLE.

Payson48 said...

LOVE THE HAIR katie!! Looks like you spent 1 minute on it this morning. Is pulling it back all you know how to do? Looks a little stringy.
Also, are you trying to lift your daughter off the ground? Maybe just showing off your burly muscles---it's all about you after all. LOVE THE SHOES!!!! Did you steal them from a hooker? JUST FABULOUS! The "pony show" continues on another day.

BeDoneNow said...

"Not-an-implant" hehe. Whatever she doesnt call them, they are swinging right out of that 1970's top she is wearing. They are clearly perfectly round, perfectly shiny and plastic, and clearly 'good bra'-less. Why lie about it? Even your 22 sheeple cant possibly believe they just perfectly inflated themselves after 2 pregnancies (not 8 as some keep infering). We all know they are clearly fake, you clearly spent the children's money on them. Why lie? Then again, why sling them around NYC like that? You are quite the laughing-stock, Katie.

Kelly said...

Oh my!!! Those are happy kids being filmed playing while Kate is working. I used to look like those kids everytime I had to get a tetnus shot. I used to love those tetnus shots, just like Kate's kids love those cameras.

Those kids look about as happy as a dog being taken to the vet.

Kelly said...

Poor Kids look like the perps I used to take in handcuffs and shackles to a bail hearing.

Bonafide Nutcase said...

The kids were off on another day of filming in the heat and none of the ones who faces you can see are happy about it.

When she described how goal oriented she is and said on The View that she failed on DWTS and was still upset with herself, it made me think she's mentally unbalanced to be that extremely goal oriented.

Her goal now is to get those kids filmed no matter what people are saying. If she has to drag them around in the heat she'll do it even if it takes a week. Whatever. The kids feelings/health are irrelevant. She's driven and you can see it in her face. I think that's why she looks so tense and drawn lately. She's pushing to meet an unrealistic goal and cannot/will not stop no matter what.

Same thing with flashing her boobs. People are commenting continuously and criticizing and so she's going to flaunt them to the extreme.

She needs to be reported for child abuse and have a psychiatric workup.

Laura D. said...

One word: Shocking. My heart breaks for those poor babies. And Kate's titties are like two water balloons in a hankey.

Payson48 said...

The kids have had the same sad faces since before the show went off the air. Just getting a magazine cover must have taken hours - for a smile. Even the 5th birthday in the park....not very happy. kate always happy if attention or cameras are on her--if she's happy so is everyone else. Remember she said she doesn't pay attention to other people-including her children obviously. I can't wait for SOMEONE/ANYONE to put her in her place and knock her down a peg!!

Payson48 said...

I think women with naturally large breasts cover them--BUT--if the large breasts ARE NEW---SHOW THEM OFF AT ALL TIMES. If on The View cover up a little bit....do not wear your Target slut outfits.

Kelly said...

Kates boobs are a total turn off. I could have a bowl full of Viagra for breakfast and my puppy wouldn't even bark at her puppies on a good day. I say we all pitch in and send Kate a Burka, face screen and all.

IF, you didn't read the caption under the pics, here it is in it's entirety:

"Surely not the cheapest of trips, Kate's eight kids are rumored to be causing a bit of stress in the financial department.

According to a tabloid report, a source was quoted as saying, “Kate says she can’t count on her ex-husband Jon because he’s broke too!”

“She’s freaking out that he’s not going to be able to make his child support payments. Kate’s got mortgage payments of about $10,000 on her $1.3 million home in Wernersville, Pa,” added the insider.

The source also mentioned that the eight little ones attend a private school which is about $4,000/year in tuition – multiplied by eight.

Word has it, Kate also spends about $300,000 a year on nannies and bodyguards."

NovaCath - You are correct, the 'article' is absurd. WERE it true (and if you hadn't followed this train wreck for the past few yrs you may actually believe it), I think the 'average' person's response to it would be "so, sell the house, take the kids out of private school, get rid of the nannies, household staff, etc." She looks awful. The 2nd pic, is reminiscent of the bad Botox pics of a wk or so ago. The top, well, as I stated on the last thread, I think she's just flipping all us bloggers, the proverbial "bird". How does one reach the point that she has deteriorated to?

Mark Knox's OFFICE phone number which was posted here is public knowledge, it can be found in a variety of places, including the New York State Online Permit and Licensing Assistance.

I hope the Labor Department will investigate these extreme working conditions.

Too late, you should have directed him to Rep. Murt in PA., http://www.repmurt.com/Contact.aspx, as well as just the links to the pics that were taken in NYC. I would think if he comes here and sees all the snark, he will suddenly 'lose' interest.

Administrator said...

You know what's so ironic? Kate was in a better financial situation BEFORE the show. She was debt free, says so in her own book, and didn't HAVE nanny and bodyguard bills, million dollar mortgages, expensive upkeep, etc.

The show made her so rich but her bills exploded and are now disproportionate.

It seems like if her ratio of expenses to money before the show was maybe 7 to 10, now her expenses are 12 to 10. Seems to me if your expenses are beyond your income, eventually the Ponzi scheme will collapse, no wonder she is working the kids so desperately.

It's like those people who start a business of their own and are so excited to be making it, and in theory end up making a lot more money--until taxes take it all away and they end up with actualy take-home pay LESS than their real job.

Ba-hahhaha.

KateandTLCSucks (aka KateSucks) said...

Re: taming the boob talk in case Dept of Labor comes here. My opinion? Those kids are being forced to work in the blistering heat and their mother looks like a 2 bit streetwalker while they do it. Her behavior and appearance is deplorable. Let the Department of Labor get the full scope of the situation.

Kelly said...

Laure D,
Yes, I am a man and if I was selected to go on a blind date with this woman, when I showed up, I'd make an excuse to go home. If, by chance I was like most guys and the horns were working overtime, once I saw that belly button, everything that is standing would be in full retreat.

For that matter, once I heard her voice, her witch cackle, witnessed that wide open mouth with the witch cackle coming out of there, I think at that point, I'd turn gay. There is nothing appealing about Kate Gosselin. I could be on a troop ship for sixteen years, stranded on an island, alone for decades and if Kate Gosselin showed up, I'd pray that somehow, somewhere, a raft would show up to take her safely home. I'll take the deserted island, thank you very much.

PA Mom ALSO said...

"The source also mentioned that the eight little ones attend a private school which is about $4,000/year in tuition – multiplied by eight."

Nope. The tuition for the SIX is that amount. The twin's tuition is considerably more. Tuition increases by grade level, Pre-K, LS, MS, and US.

Administrator said...

I'm sure Mr. Knox is intelligent enough to be able to separate snarking from actual concern for the kids. I can, most of us here can. One is not dependent on the other. I like comedies and I like dramas. Snark is fun sometimes and there's also a time to be concerned. This blog has managed to do both. We multi-task!

Kelly said...

Admin,
Fill me in on Mr. Knox. I seem to have missed his comments.

Beth said...

WE GET IT. YOU LIKE YOUR BODY. THAT'S GREAT!!! WHEEE!!! POSITIVE BODY AWARENESS, WHOOOO. YOU GO, GIRL!

But we need to have a talk, darlin'. Just you and I. So here's the deal. You could wear your beloved high wedge heel strippy strappy sandals, but pair them with something more conservative on TOP.

OR you could wear the tops you love that show off as much of your "NATURAL" bosoms as possible BUT you must pair those with something low and conservative on your feet.

Do you see where I'm going here, Kate? It's about balance. It's kind of like how you don't wear big flashy dangly earrings with a big flashy necklace AND three big dangly flashy bracelets AND a lot of rings--you get the picture, right?

It's too much. High high wedge heeled sandals + short shorts + skimpy halter top with side boob showing = looking for a job as a dancer on the strip. It's especially too much for someone who claims to want to dress conservatively in front of her eight kids. Especially for someone who claims to be a devout Christian and has benefited from fellow Christians buying that shtick. Especially--and listen very carefully to me here---for someone who is 35 years old.

Now I'm not in favor of women hitting a certain age and going around looking all stodgy in pantsuits or burkas with their hair in a bun, no fun, no appeal, just some old washed up lady.

But hear me carefully: this look would be trashy on an 18 year old, too. But she'd be forgiven for looking as if she's seeking employment on a street corner. You know why? It would be assumed she DIDN'T KNOW ANY BETTER.

At 35, it is assumed you know better than to go out dressed like that. Again, it's not so much the individual pieces that are horrible, it's the whole ensemble. A cute pair of linen capris with a halter top and low shoes would be fun, cute, and still appropriate.

Or keep the short shorts if you want to show off your legs, but pick a top with a scoop neck and cap sleeves. And a kitten heel on the bottom, but not four inch heels and ankle straps.

I know she'll never listen. But it was worth a try.

Anonymous said...

Didn't Kate say that the children were only playing in front of the cameras? If so, how come they require PERFORMER PERMITS? Poor sad little faces and having to perform in the heat and humidity of NYC during what should be their summer vacation because mommy has a mortgage payment coming up.

Laura D. said...

Beth...I loved it!!! If only Kate would read that.

Lauren said...

The BAD hair is an act. The tired, exhausted face is an act.

Kate has 8 kids and she doesn't have time to do her hair - Well that is what Kate and her people want us to believe.

It's an act. Her face looking so exhausted - again - it's an act. She must live up to her made-for-tv-image of the exhausted mother of 8.

IT'S ALL AN ACT. Remember she must keep up the charade because if she doesn't she won't have a fan base.

The REALITY is that Kate has nannies, personal assistants, a housekeeper and a chef who cater to her every personal whim.

Lauren said...

Beth I love your post.
Kate could look so much more stylish if she toned things down.
I love the big earrings, big necklace, big bracelet analogy - it's perfect.

Carol said...

Lauren, that's a good point and a very true one.

Beth said...

Oh, another note to Kate:

I'm one of those people who really don't care what you do to your body plastic surgery wise or whatnot. You could have a monkey bottom surgically grafted onto your own and it wouldn't even elicit a shrug from me. Whatever.

But please don't assume everyone is stupid enough to believe those aren't implants. I can just about guess the cc capacity of those bad boys from that shirt in the top pic, it's so obvious. Any more of those boobs showing and we might see scar tissue, unless you got them put in up through your belly area, as is all the rage nowadays.

So cut it out. You or TLC bought those boobs. They didn't magically grow overnight, nor is that the work of a magic bra, which you aren't wearing. People pass more judgment on a liar than someone who gets plastic surgery, hon.

StoryLady said...

I used to work as a receptionist in a holistic healing office. One of our clients was a prostitute. I never would have guessed in a million years by the way she dressed on her 'time off'. If she hadn't told me herself, I wouldn't have believed it.
Yoga pants, jeans, t-shirts, flip flops, her hair back in a headband. No makeup. Just a regular looking young woman.
So really? Prostitutes dress nicer than Kate.

IDModo said...

Lauren, I respectfully disagree.I believe Kate is in serious emotional difficulty. I agree with those who are suggesting there is a breakdown in her near future.

She has been rapidly deteriorating, becoming more exhibitionistic, and less concerned with actual self-care. She looks like she is crash dieting.She appears desperate and unhappy except when she is playing her role for the celebrity cameras.
She seems truly overwhelmed at having to try and connect with her children.

I don't like Kate or what she does, but I wonder how anybody could weather the barrage of negativity and criticism which she must surely be aware of, and not experience self-doubt and depression.

Even though Kate has made her choices, TLC has some responsibility in the monster they have created.They will chew her up and spit her out when she is no longer useful to them. And she knows it.

I wanted him to see the pictures and didn't want to send him to one of the tabloid sites.

I like what Admin. said. We Multi-task!

Beth, great post!

Lauren said...

Who do you think calls the paps to alert them to Kate's location??


Thinking, thinking....


Kate or her people call the paps! She knows the cameras will be on her so is it any coincidence that she looks exhausted and disheveled. Nope.

Why didn't we see any pictures of Kate's 4th of July party with Steve? Because Kate didn't call the paps.

Like Al said it's a story about nothing.

Beth said...

I've been talking about very superficial stuff such as how she dresses, but it's true those look like horrible working conditions for the kids.

The really bad thing is they get no say in it whatsoever. Go here, do this, smile here, look at that, let's do that again didn't get it on that take. Matching clothes, walk in a line, you'll get water later if you're good and we get this shot.

It's just crazy ridiculous that these kids can't have any sort of normal life.

And I agree Kate looks as if she is going downhill and fast. She's on a treadmill of tanning, manicures, hair appointments, appearances, interviews, shooting for the show, where do the kids fit in?

Oh yeah. As moneymakers. So sad.

HI 50 said...

Katie looks tired because she was up late at the Gaga gig, rolling with the celebrities. Maybe her & her entourage (Steve) tied on a late one at Nobu. Seriously, she looks a bit hung over.

Drats those little Gosselin 8, why does the baggage, I mean, why are the kids so needy? Don't they know Mommy Dearest is exhausted from pulling an all nighter with Steve & the rock stars? Damn!

Lauren said...

No problem IDModo. I respect your opinion too.

fidosmommy said...

How Kate dresses around her children is of concern. It may not be labor-related, but it is
certainly mental health related. Those children do not need to be looking at the body parts of their mother. It is unnatural and it is abnormal. If she is behaving this outlandishly when cameras and the public are watching, what happens in the privacy of the house? I fear for the emotional well being of the Gosselin children with a mother who clearly
believes she has the obligation to let it all hang out so she and her children will be noticed enough to remain on TV. She exploits her body, shows no concern for what her children see, in order for them all to bring in money.

If these black low cut blouse pictures are actually part of filming, then I would say that 6 year old children are being involved in Rated PG "entertainment". Last I saw, G rated shows
do not include uncovered, bouncing breasts, legs bared up to there while climbing into balloons or standing on the edges of rooftops.

This is the working environment of 8 children, all prepubescent.

What's next? said...

I think she is trying to look like Kendra of the Girls Next Door fame. Her clothing choices and her hairstyle seem very similar to Kendra's. Guess TLC is trying to offer something for everyone.

As to the heat I would think it would be worse in the city because the pavement and the traffic would produce more heat. With all the retakes and amount of time spent outside this cannot be good for the children. I hope there is someone there to make sure the children are comfortable and not getting overheated or dehydrated. Sadly, I don't think that is the case.

Westcoaster said...

When I saw these pictures earlier today, I was blown away - here are these sweet children, groomed and dressed, forced to walk the perp walk in the early hot, hot, hot am and here is their moms, in wrinkled tight shorts, boobs falling out of a halter top and hooker shoes - she really does look like she slept in her clothes last night - stunning because in her fake photo ops with the Donald, she is quite groomed and made up. What amazes me is that this is the look TLC wants on their show? Unless she goes into hair and makeup somewhere on the street while the children wilt in the sun.

Kate and TLC - total tools.

Lily said...

We need to cut and paste the pictures in an email to Joy and ask her where the better bra is in this picture...I wish they would call kate out on this obvious lie.

Kat said...

A good bra? Please! Why does she insist on dressing like a hooker in these past few days? Low cut tops, bare back and short, shorts with high hooker heels. How embarrasing for her children and for her that she has to dress like a floosy. I know it's hot but she could have worn a more flattering sleeveless shirt and a little longer shorts and flip flops for goodness sakes. Who tours with heels like that? Actually I always wear tennins shoes when touring for comfort.
Those poor kids are dressed up for the heat but momma dresses like the hooker on the street corner. It is so shameful. And she is supposed to be a mother to look up to?

Anonymous said...

I thougt the kids were only on. Kate plus 8 once and a while. Why do they keep filming these poor kids. If the show is only updates on how the kids are doing.

fidosmommy said...

Re: school tuition.

The particular school the Gosselins attend does not list its tuition schedule online, but other
schools of that same brand do. I checked several in the eastern states. It ranged from
$8,500 to over $18,000 per child, with scholarships available for those who need it, as well as sibling discounts. The ones I checked made it clear they insist parents pay as much as they can before scholarships come into play. They have to bring W-2's and other
proof of income.

I can only assume the Berks County version of this school is somewhere in this range and has the same policy.

So, let's say it's middle of the road in tuition costs, there were scholarships given and
they have given discounts to Mady (the second born twin) and each of the sextuplets pays increasingly lower tuition. It's a reduction of a few hundred dollars per sibling, maybe a thousand.

I can understand the sibling discount. But I can't imagine there would be big scholarships for a family that makes what the Gosselins make! Maybe modest ones, but not big ones.

Some time ago it was revealed that the Gosselins were spending $70,000 a year on tuition. That was about the time Kate was going to Kinkos all the time, and on one trip
held up her financial notebook for the cameras to catch her "budget". I'm wondering if Kate has played the hardship card with the school recently and has had the tuition burden reduced. The amount in the article seems low to me.

Jo said...

What the hell is she wearing? Good grief.

PatK said...

TLC is actually filming her when she's wearing these boob-exposing outfits?? Isn't Kate Plus 8 supposed to be a "family show"?

PA Mom ALSO said...

"The amount in the article seems low to me."
----------
I pointed this out upthread. The amount is not correct.

"I can only assume the Berks County version of this school is somewhere in this range and has the same policy."

It's not in Berks County. It's in Lancaster County, but you're correct. It is in that range. Scholarships are not the same as financial aid. A scholarship is awarded by an individual or an estate that sets up the scholarship program to cover part or all of the student's tuition. The names of the recipients are announced in the newspaper. It's an awards program, and is not based on financial need but is rather given to students who demonstrate excellence in a particular area of academics.

Financial aid falls under a different criteria, and need must be shown. Only the school, the parents and the student know the identity of those on financial aid (unless the student reveals it to his peers).

HI 50,
Yep. My first thought about that picture was that she had a serious hangover too. It must be hell to have nannies and helpers dress and feed the kids while she's nursing a bad one.

Woe Is Me said...

Interesting how "scholarships" were mentioned here the other day and now suddenly it's "tuition." (Boo hoo, poor me) Oh.........sure they don't read the blogs. And $4k/kid is ridiculous...double or triple that in any good private school.

Woe Is Me said...

...and it's my understanding the Gosselin kids attend a rather fancy schoool.

Woe Is Me said...

school*

Linda in NS said...

Here is a thought for Kate. Downsize her home, put her children in a public school (gasp) and cut back on all her spending. If she does that maybe, just maybe, those poor children will be able to enjoy a "normal" childhood and not have to work to support their loser mother. That woman looks absolutely hung over.

Markiesnana said...

Something about that first photo where she is neer a white van is worrisome to me.
Kate looks like someone who is malnourished because of alcoholism....something along those lines.
I realize that some photos of people are unflattering; but that picture is a red flag to me.

Markiesnana said...

sorry for the "near" typo previously

Linda in NS said...

Markiesnana I agree with you Kate does look malnourished. She also looks hung over. Makes one wonder why her handlers let her out of the hotel looking like that. Next thing you know she'll be on celebrity rehab.

Woe Is Me said...

,,,is there rehab for those overly exposed canckles and the Flintstone toe?

mama mia said...

Okay, back to my hand holding rant. See the picture of Kate holding Alexis and Hannah. With Alexis, Kate flexes her arm upward from the elbow, like she is weight lifting, forcing Alexis's arm up over her head, which hurts. With Hannah, Kate's arm is down by her side, and so is Hannah's. Kate knows what she is doing and she intend to yank her kids arms and make them hurt because it keeps them in line. Saves her from publically yelling at them and being seen as the witch she is.

Linda in NS said...

There is no reason for Kate to hold Alexis' hand like that. Definitely abusing the children to keep themin line. She obviously didn't like Alexis trying to be not seen. She still has that "who farted" look on her sour mug too.

Woe Is Me said...

Your hand holding rant is well deserved.

I often think of this as I walk w/my precious grandson.

TLC stinks said...

I agree, those kids don't need to be out in the heat but I wonder if it's to have them literally melt down on camera and show to the world what poor single mom Kate has to put up with without Jon? She has crossed the line. It seems to me that if a pet owner were as cruel to their pets as this woman is to her kids exposing them to the heat and working them to death, the pet owner would be in jail. It's a sad thing when pets have more rights than children in this country, IMO.

Linda in NS said...

It is so sad to see the absolute contempt Kate has on her face for her children. She shows no love or concern for them whatsoever. She doesn't deserve to have those beautiful children. Sad, sorry little victims all eight.

Vanessa said...

Ah, but Linda, see the look of contempt is for the P-Paparazzi, she LOATHES them! And we all know the loving looks she gives her kids at home right? ;)

Linda in NS said...

Vanessa, Kate's "loving" look could shatter concrete I'm sure. LOL

sadie said...

When their father Jon, Agreed to let the kids film again, I thought it was suppose to be specials and that her show was going to be the primary one. I see the kids filming and her doing nothing but dragging them from hoel to street corners. When is this woman going to support her kids without her kids? Also one more thing, who dresses like this to tour NY? She looks ridiculous as a mother of 8 kids dressed like that

SAHM said...

Once again... everyone else is in flip-flops and sandals and Queen Kate is prancing around in hooker heels. The outfit is fine... its a hot day there - i get that, but the shoes have to go Kate! They make you look ridiculous and cheap! Someone mentioned that she looked hungover... she probably was...wasn't she just out the night before w/ Donald and his wife at the Lady Gaga concert... now that's good Christian music!

That aside... the kids look miserable! Hope someone from PA or NY Dept of Labor picks up on this and questions the permits and all the other stuff TLC is suppose to abide by.

Also... if Jamie is there... where are her kids???????? I have yet to see pics of her kids tagging along. Also found this bit of info while googling Jamie... didn't know her husband filed for divorce...

RE: Tuition at the private school

I would think the tups had a somewhat reduced tuition this past year since Kate chose to send them only 3 days/week.

NYS is good people! said...

Didn't Kate say that the children were only playing in front of the cameras? If so, how come they require PERFORMER PERMITS? Poor sad little faces and having to perform in the heat and humidity of NYC during what should be their summer vacation because mommy has a mortgage payment coming up.

In NEW YORK STATE (which they may never visit again....who knows?) even "documentary" show participants are considered performers. Which is why California and New York SHOULD be the GOLD STANDARD for ALL 50 states on child performers.

I too would like to send Mark Knox an email. What is his email address?

What's next? said...

I hate to say this, but if nothing comes of the phone calls and e-mails could be because this filming is promoting NY and encouraging tourism. Money talks - sad but true.

Leslie said...

Just reflecting on how clueless she is on her kids feelings. I sent a permission slip to the wrong place for my daughters field trip to a bouncy place yesterday, and when I got the voicemail my heart just sank because I thought she didn't get to go and I knew how sad she would be (she's 6!)

Somehow I don't think Kate would give a rats a** in that situation.

Incidentally they routed the slip and let her go WHEW......crisis averted! Happy Friday my fellow bloggers :)

No. There are different tuition rates for Pre-K, depending which program they attend, i.e., full-time, part-time, etc. There are no reduced rates. The set rates for each program are the rates that you pay.

Look at Kate's right boob in the picture showing just her from the side. You can see the scar from her boob job on the underside of that boob.

"Look at Kate's right boob in the picture showing just her from the side. You can see the scar from her boob job on the underside of that boob."

Where is there a photo showing her right boob? I'm looking at the top photo of just her from the side, and it looks like there is a scar or line of some sort under her LEFT arm, just to the side of her left breast.

Applebee said...

Was a pap in her face taking her picture when she's hot and tired?

She just walked out of an air conditioned hotel and got into a vehicle. She wasn't hot and tired.

Yes she looked distressed about something and yes it was probably the paps.

I don't understand the need to add statements like the above. It just takes away from your credibility.

Applebee said...

Breast Implants are generally inserted throught the nipple. The days of long scars from breast implants are long gone.

If she had breast implants she would not have a scar under her arm.

She looks like a trashy street walking bimbo !!!

re: boob job scar. It is the photo at the top of this page, kate is the only one in the shot. Look at HER right breast, farthest away from camera. We are seeing the part of that boob closest to her midline. Look at the bottom of the boob. Blow it up a little. There is a u shaped scar on the underside of that boob (where the bottom of the boob meets the chest wall). The scar is about an inch from her chest wall. That is the most common place an incision is made for a boob job. It's there. Look again

WTF? said...

Why in God's name are you blowing up pictures of Kate Gosselin's breasts? Doesn't anybody else find this level of obsession scary as hell?

Merely trying to point out a blatant lie!
Boob job, baby -- admit it, Ms Liar Liar Pants on Fire.

Markiesnana said...

I can't see how these children will grow up without major mental health problems. Remember how she would walk barefoot at a gas station, because it was clean, having been rained upon, etc...clean like walking in NY. However, the kids couldn't dare step on the floor of a hotel room. They were confined to sitting on the bed unless they got their shoes on. She took lollipops right out of their hands when they were given them at a morning TV show, to keep them happy for awhile. As you know, they can only have "organic" pops.
These poor children are going to be so completely twisted and confused by this woman's many strange actions, and we have only been privy to a FEW of her oddities. Just consider living with her!

"The source also mentioned that the eight little ones attend a private school which is about $4,000/year in tuition – multiplied by eight."

Nope. The tuition for the SIX is that amount. The twin's tuition is considerably more. Tuition increases by grade level, Pre-K, LS, MS, and US.

Re: taming the boob talk in case Dept of Labor comes here. My opinion? Those kids are being forced to work in the blistering heat and their mother looks like a 2 bit streetwalker while they do it. Her behavior and appearance is deplorable. Let the Department of Labor get the full scope of the situation.

NYS Dept. of Labor is listening said...
Gentle request.
More advocacy and less boob talk?
Just for a little while since NYS Dept of Labor might come to this blog? Thank you

Too late, you should have directed him to Rep. Murt in PA., http://www.repmurt.com/Contact.aspx, as well as just the links to the pics that were taken in NYC. I would think if he comes here and sees all the snark, he will suddenly 'lose' interest.

Carolina Gal said...

IF, you didn't read the caption under the pics, here it is in it's entirety:

"Surely not the cheapest of trips, Kate's eight kids are rumored to be causing a bit of stress in the financial department.

According to a tabloid report, a source was quoted as saying, “Kate says she can’t count on her ex-husband Jon because he’s broke too!”

“She’s freaking out that he’s not going to be able to make his child support payments. Kate’s got mortgage payments of about $10,000 on her $1.3 million home in Wernersville, Pa,” added the insider.

The source also mentioned that the eight little ones attend a private school which is about $4,000/year in tuition – multiplied by eight.

Word has it, Kate also spends about $300,000 a year on nannies and bodyguards."

NovaCath - You are correct, the 'article' is absurd. WERE it true (and if you hadn't followed this train wreck for the past few yrs you may actually believe it), I think the 'average' person's response to it would be "so, sell the house, take the kids out of private school, get rid of the nannies, household staff, etc." She looks awful. The 2nd pic, is reminiscent of the bad Botox pics of a wk or so ago. The top, well, as I stated on the last thread, I think she's just flipping all us bloggers, the proverbial "bird". How does one reach the point that she has deteriorated to?

Kelly you're a man, I'm glad you said it. (8 kids aside) I'm thinking what guy would be attracted to a cold shrew with fake boobs, a fake tummy, fake hair, fake teeth and a fake tan?

Kelly said...

Kates boobs are a total turn off. I could have a bowl full of Viagra for breakfast and my puppy wouldn't even bark at her puppies on a good day. I say we all pitch in and send Kate a Burka, face screen and all.

Laura D. said...

One word: Shocking. My heart breaks for those poor babies. And Kate's titties are like two water balloons in a hankey.

Kelly said...

Poor Kids look like the perps I used to take in handcuffs and shackles to a bail hearing.

prairiemary said...

I don't want to be snarky, while these children are looking so stressed-but why doesn't she just go topless already! You can see her boobs nearly falling out! I am pretty sure the twins are plenty old enough to be mortified! All she needs now is a POLE.

Judy said...

After seeing that first pic of Kate...I just hope she has her life insurance paid up.
What the hell has she done to herself ?
She has turned into another Heidi and looks like crap. She looks like she's in deep trouble to me. And I don't mean mentally.We all know that she has had that problem for a long time.

Naomi said...

Sorry for the typo's....just a long day playing with my babies.

I consider this to be child abuse. I wouldn't take my dog out in the heat of the day and keep him out like that!
