Back to school shopping again

Ah the irony of Mady's shirt: Live Simply. Is she trying to tell Kate something? Like stop spending my money on manicures, pedicures and tanning? Ha.

Who goes school shopping looking like that? She looks like she needs to working the street corner instead of shopping !

Lorrie said...

Nah, not Kate's style. Then she'd be earning the money herself!

SAHM said...

BWHAHAHHAHAHA!!! I can't stop laughing at her outfit!! This woman is too much. T-shirt not a problem... t-shirt w/ skirt still not a problem.... ITS THE SHOES!!!!! This woman has no idea how ridiculous she looks!!!

Laura D. said...

She looks like an over-the-hill Aerosmith roadie.

Mare said...

And that belt hanging there, making her look like a slut. I'm sure it's all for Steve's reaction. "See what your missing?"

Those poor kids. I can't imagine having a supertramp for a mother.

naomi said...

Pair of flip flops would look better and make way more sense!

Jen said...

Poor Mady. She'll need a miracle to ever Live Simply with her crazy mother.

LisaNH said...

Well, for once, Kate finally had her boobs covered. They're not out there for the whole world to see.

But that is about I can about the outfit. I mean she is dressed like a teenager, again. That outfit is way too young for her. Does she think if she dresses like that the group Heart will consider letting her sing back up?

I guess she doesn't have a full length mirror at the "Mine, all mine mansion" because why would she leave the house looking like that.

Montreal Gal said...

Those must be her favourite pair of shoes: she wears them with shorts, mini skirts, dresses... and she thinks they (and she) look fashionable, sexy and all-around fabulous.
The woman has no taste. None whatsoever.

Denise said...

Can she not see her feet? Those shoes are the ugliest things I've ever seen.

Anonymous said...

I feel for those girls. Their mom is a nut. I am getting to the point where it is no longer fun to hate on Kate. I feel too much pity for those children.
I know a women like this in real life. I always felt Kate 'was familiar' to me, but I could never place it, as this woman has been out of my life for quite some time...but then one day it hit me.
Literally everything this real life loony does, so does Kate. Even the favouritism of the children. I also wonder if Kate *makes* the girls wear dresses....the women I knew did. She said it was to be proper, but it was really for attention. She used to dress her daughter and myself the same when we went out too lol.
In sum, everything is about appearances...the class is missing though for Kate. Those shoes say a lot lol

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

How long before she's photographed from behind, wearing a rhinestone thong above low riding jeans?....

Don't worry Kate, you'll find your style ............eventually.

Scary said...

Where's the bodyguard?! Did they make it home alive?

BeDoneNow said...

Well, TLC clearly gave precise instructions: "Cover up more and stop showing so much skin." So she is complying, but still tramping up her parkinglot outings in any way possible.

I am so sorry, Cara and Mady. We're embarrassed too, girls.

Diane said...

Kate really missed the boat when she refused to do "What Not to Wear." They would have had a field day with her, but, she could have possibly learned something. All right, who am I kidding?

I think these are a second pair of those types of shoes. I also think that she didn't have lipo on her ankles ( not that she above it. She clearly isn't), but, I think the difference in the appearance of her ankles is because of the shoes. If she wore these shoes with jeans or pants to go out in the evening, I think they would be ok.

It certainly appears that Kate has no fashion sense, or maybe, she does know they are not right "together" and it is one more way to keep attention on herself even it is thru a fashion disaster. ;-)

Kate seems to be a neurotic woman and when the attention goes away ( as it will), I think she might have a lot of trouble dealing with it. Mental breakdown, I think is certainly possible. I wonder if her children will sign Mom up for a new reality series: "Crazy Kate in the Asylum?" JMO.

Michelle said...

I'm really starting to think she dresses like this just to get on the tabloid pages and get us talking about her. To Kate any attention is good attention. She's more than happy with negative attention and comments.

Can you even imagine how many hours she puts in picking her ensembles in the morning, makeup, straightening hair, etc.? Either she gets up hours before the kids (yeah, right) or the nannies are running that house while she primps in the "never come in under penalty of severeness" master suite.

I think I have to go cold turkey on commenting about her. I'm giving her exactly what she wants which kills me.

Catherine said...

Back when they traded way, way up to the 23 acre home, I was bewildered. I thought, do they really think this is going to go on forever? When the show ends, they won't be able to afford the taxes on this place, let alone upkeep and mortgage.

When Jon pulled the kids off the show, did Kate learn any kind of lesson about how fragile and fleeting her brand of 'fame' is?

I mean, she's 35 years old for crying out loud. If Nicole Kidman and Julia Roberts are having a tough time getting good roles or opening successful movies, what does Kate think she'll be doing at 40?

In five years the kids will be 11 and 14. Does she really think anyone will care by then? Now we see her on a sad, daily lone pap parade, in a new outfit every day, and I'm still bewildered.

Exactly what talent does she think she has to keep this charade up, and is she saving any money for tomorrow? She's going to get to the point where someone is going to have to take over her finances. She's lost all touch with reality. Ironic, for a reality show ho.

It's really getting sad.

Hard to Keep Loving Jon said...

Hell, we've done good...
The "other twins" aren't visable...
Hands are being held.

Whatevah said...

I would have been mortified to be seen in public with my mother if she dressed like that. But then again, my mother was a mom (there IS a difference between the two, Kate) and she had good taste. We weren't rich but she had class.

IDModo said...

All the things about Kate that used to make me really angry now seem to me to be the pathetic attempts of a not very bright woman to control an environment that has been totally taken over by her handlers at TLC. I believe they have encouraged all the worst aspects of her personality to flourish, because it "makes good television." She is a puppet on very short strings.

I think she knows she is way in over her head and that knowledge is affecting everything she does. She seems in perpetual panic mode; concerned about losing her looks, concerned about losing her kids, concerned about losing the gravy train that she and Jon jumped happily on 6 years ago. She knows she has no marketable talent without the children; so she has to control their every move so that they will continue to be her financial support system.

TLC and the media feed into this in order to keep her alive as a money maker.

I think what she does is despicable but I am no longer ready to give her all the blame.I think she is a very sick woman and headed for a breakdown, and TLC and its minions are fostering it.
God help the kids!

Vanessa said...

If TLC were really concerned with what "image" this chick is portraying, they WOULD hire a stylist for her. It causes discussion, it has that shock value. They're letting her do whatever she wants, maybe even encouraging her (just like rat-claws telling her she looked great in the "nude" bikini).

wayward said...

Does Ann Taylor have a "$15 Craigslist Call Girl" collection?

Lolly said...

"IDModo said... She knows she has no marketable talent without the children"

You know, I am not so sure she realizes she has no talent. For some reason, when she continually talks about her "career". she gives me the impression that she thinks she has a lot to offer. Talk show co host, "gift of gab" thing. Another delusional dream of hers. IMO.

The ways she dresses surely indicates she has not learned a lot about fashion and accessories. I truly feel for those kids, especially the 5 girls she has. Young women are usually guided by the parent, as to how to dress, apply make-up, etc. You would think she would learn even if the sake of the girls she has. But silly me, why should she think of the kids?

Catherine said...

She needs a spiritual advisor more than a stylist. She's so far off track it's pitiful. It's easy to pray for the people you love, and very difficult to pray for those you dislike or even feel hate toward. May God Bless Kate Gosselin and help her find her way back. Eight innocent little souls depend on it.

I'm done watching this impending train wreck. It's a lot sadder than I thought it was going to be.

Vanessa said...

Lolly, I'll take it one step further, she also "thinks" she's a role model for moms. She "thinks" she's an expert on parenting. Yes, I agree, she's delusional only because she's been enabled. The ones who've "left" her are the ones who have tried to open her eyes to all that is WRONG with her so called "career" (code word for child exploitation) TLC feeds her hungry need for power, but she's too stupid to realize that she's given THEM all the power.

just wondering said...

Those are some really fugly shoes. They just make her cankles look canklier.

Lolly said...

Vanessa good points and you are absolutely correct. I remember Jon saying that Kate needed to wake up about TLC. I have never witnessed anything like this before in my long life. A huge network literally taking over a family. It is truly sad. Kate is lazy in so many ways. Why not be resourceful and make your own path? It seems as if she waits on TLC and her PR team to make a career for her. I recall a remark she made that SHE never thinks about her hair (lol) that she never has new ideas or suggestions what to do with it. Or something similiar to that. I really think this is how she lives her life. TLC/Steve tells her and she does it.

Catherine..excellent point.

Lolly said...

I have gone from extreme dislike for Kate to well...I guess the word would be pity. Those children will suffer and are suffering, (even Kate admitted that) yet, it seems no one is helping them to cope with the divorce, the press, the constant filming and all else the kids are going through. I fear for them. I have talked to my own kids and they are very upset about how those kids are used too. They saw it, long ago. So sad. I wish all the devout followers of Kate would really think about her kids. Not the materalistic things they get, but the emotional well being of them. There doesn't seem much of that when I read their postings.

lol! Don't forget the standard dragon or butterfly stamp. She will probably convince herself that a "daisy duke" outfit, shirt & all, with those shoes will make her look good. She NEEDS to spend some money on a stylist, problem though if client won't listen to expert advice and client feels more qualified. Sounds like Kate.

Lolly said...

Troy... "daisy duke" outfit, shirt & all, with those shoes will make her look good."

You missed the trip to Target with the short shorts, (daisy like) those shoes and breastests hanging out a mile, I take it! LOL

Lolly said...

"problem though if client won't listen to expert advice and client feels more qualified. Sounds like Kate"

THIS is the very reason why I think she has not gotten a therapist for those kids, nor learned to dress properly. SHE KNOWS IT ALL. Exactly.

The professional organizers - Wouldn't listen to thier suggestions

The expert dance instructor - we all know what happened there

Therapist .. Kate made a statement that she tried to listen to for "hidden meaning" in her kids anger, etc, trying to do the job of therapist.

The list is too long.. much too long.

Cab Guy said...

Mady's shirt should read:

Mommy exploited us and made us work the entire summer and she rewarded herself with manicures, spa getaways, and botox treatments.

All we got were crummy product placement t-shirts!

wryview said...

She doesn't have Jon to pick out her clothes anymore. He said in that one show when they went shopping that she didn't know how to pick out clothes. Those shoes are ridiculous.

Anon 1 said...

Denise said... Can she not see her feet? Those shoes are the ugliest things I've ever seen.
~~~~~~~~~
Not only are they ugly, (reallll ugly), they're so 2008. I haven't noticed the real celebs wearing them much lately, or if they do, it's a more subdued, feminine version of the gladiators.

Must Love Dogs said...

They won't put her on WHAT NOT TO WEAR, thats for regular people, honey. Shes a celeb who can well afford someone to help her out with clothing choices.

Anonymous said...

I cannot believe the way she looks. I feel so sorry for those kids what an embarassment. I understand that after a divorce one wants to look good, usually because their self-esteem has taken a big blow, but be classy about it. She would look so much better if she covered her legs more, they are not good looking, and wore shoes that complimented her build. She certainly has enough money to go buy some books about how to dress for your own body shape to learn how to accentuate your good features and minimize your weaknesses. She looks like she's trying to desperately look hip and young, but what she really looks like is trashy.

Anonymous said...

That cackle of her drives me off the deep end. Holy cow woman, who told you that was a sexy laugh or even the least bit attractive?

JUST SAYING said...

Kate looks like Beth Chapman,both of them have the HIPPO loud mouths ...Beth wears the same shoes ,the same tee shirt,carries the same purse,and the same blond hair ..I'm just waiting to see more tattoos on Kate.. Mady & Cara ,they are seeing how mommy dearest is dressing,so they will mimic their mom,and I wonder how will Kate feel about her daughters dressing like a two dollar puta???

Jaye said...

I think the high heels are her way of stating that although she lives in PA, she is really Hollywood and deserves to be treated as such. Don't ever mistake her for a "regular" citizen because she is so much more special than that. She refuses to be an average member of society.

The more she tries to be fashionable, the more of an ass she makes of herself. The outfits look like they come from Frederick's of Hollywood - which is ok if you are a hot, single 22 year old who lives in Miami. Not a crusty 35 year old divorcee with 8 kids from Wernersville.

Marie said...

Seriously...is it just me or is there something wrong with her skirt?

Doesn't even look like she wants to hold hands with her kids! Who holds hands like that?!!

Okay, so let me guess...the younger children will all be taken a few days later? Can't she take these kids anywhere without grouping them together or in pairs of twins and sextuplets? Except for a rare dentist visit witha singleton?

It would give her more time to get to know their individual style for school clothing and such, instead of having them match all the time like they have been known to do. I don't care if it is to try and keep track of your kids by dressing them all in same color, some of its ridiculous.

Please, Pleae tell me it won't be a repeat when she took them to get shoes last year and they had to basically had to walk passed a mob of people from the store to their car??????!!! That's what turned me OFF!!

Kelly said...

Those are the ugliest pair of shoes I have ever seen. Looks like she strapped a pair of armadillos to her feet. She probably wears them so she can hide her big toe from the media.

SoCalRosie said...

I really want to know what in the heck she was thinking when she bought these shoes! If it is true that she reads these blogs. KATE THROW THEM IN THE TRASH! please Steve, Jamie, TLC, somebody tell her. these are beyong ugly, they are fugly

Ladies and gentlemen, Kate's look is what we call trying too hard.

_________________________________________________________

Please don't compare Beth Chapman to Kate Gosselin. Kate is a narcissistic shrew who has pimped out her family for fortune and fame. Kate is "ITLESS".

Beth Chapman on the other hand is a loving mother, wife and bounty hunter. She treats her husband and family with respect. Heck, she even gives her bounties a little pep talk after they are caught.

Beth certainly doesn't deserve to be compared to Kate the child pimping shrew. JMHO.

Sorry said...

I think Kate has a stylist - who obviously hates her. Just like on DWTS when Kate obviously PO'd the makeup and wardrobe people. The other "stars" on DWTS were beautifully made up and dressed, and Kate just looked ridiculous.

Well, if you're looking for business for your salon, you really don't want to make a client look bad! That's really not good advertising!

Moose Mania said...

I don't think the original poster was COMPARING her to Kate. She simply said that her physical appearance reminded her of Kate. Big difference.

Hot In PA said...

"It would give her more time to get to know their individual style for school clothing and such, instead of having them match all the time like they have been known to do."

____________

There is no individual style for school clothing. All of the kids will now wear uniforms, so they all will be matching (to a certain extent) all of the other students. There are variations and uniform selections, but they all must adhere to the uniform dress code.

gossip center - Filming buyng shoew for the kids

Hahahahahah said...

I think the stylist comes from TLC, and they are using Kate's ego to convince her how amazing she looks. With TLC putting all her bad behavior out for the world to see, I am beginning to believe they are just using her. Kate is just one big old joke that everyone is in on except for Kate.

And TLC is laughing all the way to the bank.

What in the heck were they doing in Quakertown? It's over an hour away! No shoe stores in Reading or Lancaster, Kate? Geez...

Maybe that's the only store they could find that would close just to permit the filming!!

Didn't we see a shoe shopping episode before? They certainly are exhausting all filming ideas, aren't they?

Cat said...

KrazyKate looks like a dominatrix specializing in Bondage & Discipline, Slave Training, Corporal Punishment....poor Jon, he escaped with his life.

Remember when she thought it "cute" to hit Jon?

I wonder how Steve likes it.

attentionseekingmamakate said...

My daughter started being picky about clothes at age 3, by age 9--she would have been mortified if I stepped out of the house like that. I cannot imagine what her older brothers would have thought. I can just hear Kate asking her girls how she looks and fishing for compliments and they have to give positive feedback or else.

Kate refused to do "What Not to Wear?" When was that?

PJ's momma said...

French Canadian and Hot in PA, you are both right. This is exactly the same scenario as filmed/broadcast last year, most likely the exact same store, and the shoes are probably product placement and therefore free. Note that they're usually wearing $2 flip flops from Old Navy or Crocs otherwise. Meantime, old mom is looking miserable as ever and also absolutely ridiculous in another pair of expensive hooker heels (and sorry but I just loathe that french pedicure look) and a mini-skirt/boobie outfit (no bodyguard in sight). To call this farce predictable would be a gross understatement.

emschick1128 said...

Just Saying I agree that Kate is on her way to looking like Beth Chapman just needs bigger boobs and more leather but that is surely where that comparison ends. Beth would be insulted to be compared to Kate. She works, is a loving mother,has a good heart and seems to be a good wife to Dog. The Chapman's also seem very family oriented. As outrageous as they may be at times I think they're more real than the Gosselin's ever dreamed of being

Diane said...

Anonymous- It was in a magazine article, I think. It's been over a year ago. Who knows if it was accurate. But, if they asked, she should have done it. Of course, this is just my opinion.

Boston Bonnie said...

Do you think they are repeating outs to convince us that this really is reality television?

After all kids need to go shoe shopping more then once in their lifetime. So taking them shopping would be "normaL"

I couldn't even type the word normal right.

yawn said...

They closed the store for one family. That's reality. What a snooze-fest.

PJ's momma said...

Sorry, meant to say this in my other post. Anonymous, I don't think Kate was offered WNTW. There was an interview with Stacy and Clinton somewhere and they were asked if they would like to make her over and they were diplomatic, until Clinton said, "I hate that hair!!" I'm glad it wasn't offered to her - she has received enough freebies. Help the little people who are struggling, I say! The people who appreciate it!

TLCexploitspeople said...

Imho, TLC's shows have filmed every family or couple on their reality shows doing the same things, from The Duggars to The Cake Boss to The Little Couple to Big World to Plus 8. I rarely watch any shows on TLC anymore, but I do enjoy Cake Boss and was disappointed to see that show going where the rest have been. TLC gets an idea and repeats it so much from cake to child exploitation of multiples to tattoos to weddings and bikes. If a family fails with TLC's help, they repackage the show as with the Gosselin family and the father and son from American Chopper. And they wonder why people quit watching?

So Mady's still in her jean skirt, for what, 4 or 5 days now? And Cara's in the same shorts as yesterday. The boys are wearing old clothes. Does anyone pay attention to these kids?

I see from the shoe shopping pictures that Collin has taken to wearing dark glasses in an attempt to be incognito. I loved getting new shoes for school when I was little. Kate's kids look like they're being marched to the gulag.

Mady is not in the same jean skirt. In the pics of her on Aug 18, she's wearing a jean skirt but it has a ragged hem. Maybe she has more than one jean skirt??

Cara is wearing a pair of white shorts. Could she have more than one pair of white shorts for the summer??

The boys are wearing clothes they've worn before? Is that considered neglect?

I guess the shoe shopping trip will be another episode for Khate+8, you can see the film crew. Apparently they closed the store for the Gosselin Royal Family of PA (snark!).

Here's what's posted on Radar Online:

After a week filled with bargain shopping with her twin girls, Kate Gosselin brought out the whole brood on Friday to film a trip to a local shoe store.

PHOTOS: Kate Gosselin Finds Her Stride During Filming

Kate, in a hot pink top and hot pink heels, and her eight kids (plus bodyguard Steve Neild) stopped into a Stride Rite store in Quakertown, Pennsylvania. As a camera crew stood by, Kate and her kids perused the store, stopping to try on some favorites.

PHOTOS: Back To School Shopping With Kate Gosselin!

Though they closed the store as the family shopped, Kate posed for photos with some fans who were waiting outside.

As a group of people looked on, the large group left the store clutching their bags of shoes as they made their way to their huge van.

Unless you have insider information, will all of you anonymouses PLEASE pick a name and stick with it, even if it's ANON ABC, ANON Is Me, Anonymous123, etc. etc.? Admin has asked you to do this over and over again, but her requests are being ignored.

It is so difficult knowing which anonymous is posting. Thanks!

KateJonandTLCSuck said...

Why do all Kate defenders insist on being Anonymous? Ashamed or something?

my9cats said...

I think Admin should just not publish anything by anonymous. If they can't bother to come up with a name, she shouldn't bother to post their comments. Even if the poster has inside info, using a fake name will not give them away. It just helps keeping the conversation going by helping the "law n order" bloggers know to which anonymous they are addressing.

my9cats said...

At least the Promenade Shops in Center Valley was spared the onslaught of Kate, kids, and krew. I love that little center. Perhaps they went to Quackertown because closer shoe stores declined the honor of Kate's appearance.

Waiting for the other shoe to drop said...

So Stride Rite closed its doors again this year so that the Queen could shop for back-to-school shoes. And by "shop" I mean "pick out as many free shoes as she wants," since she obviously wasn't going to be charged for anything (either TLC footed the bill, since they were filming; or, Stride Rite tossed her a few dozen shoes for the free advertising). As for the "large group looking on" -- no doubt they were disgruntled customers who were once again forced to wait in the gutter and endure her highness' "I don't shop with the peasants" attitude.

All the interviewers ask in utter awe: How DOES this "single" mom DO it???? One word: FREEBIES. Free formula, free help (endless volunteers when tups were born), free clothes, free home-makeover (first house), free groceries (gift cards), free toys, free Juicy Juice, free shoes, free camping gear, free trips, free make-over (tooth-whitening, tummy-tuck, hair). This bitch doesn't pay for a thing, and hasn't for the past 6 years. I imagine if the rest of us parents got everything for free, we'd be able to "do it all" too.

By the way, for the misguided media and/or Sheeple who may read this blog: Kate IS NOT A SINGLE MOTHER. She is a divorced mother who co-parents her children with her ex-husband -- and receives over $20,000/month in child support.

Nannies raise the kids; professional cleaners clean the house; Craft Services provide most meals; landscapers take care of the 26-acres. Someone please explain to me how this woman even qualifies as a mother.

Anonymous said...

Please stop commenting on the shoes, don't you know this horror well enough by now to know she wore them for the simple fact that it would get a reaction from the blogs, let's not give this no talent-attention whore any more attention about the obvious.

kidsRablessing said...

I checked out the ROL pics of Kate and the 8 at the shoe store and I am fully convinced that Kate is ridiculous and crazy, she is living in a fantasy world. And those poor kids have never known what its like to live in the real world. Shopping with little kids is stressful enough, but add filming to it and I cannot imagine how much more uncomfortable the situation can be for those kids. And then they have to deal with freaky fans outside. I just hope for a time when those kids will never be under the scrutiny of a camera and are free to live in private.

LOL!! QUAKERTOWN, not Quackertown, although I bet when the crew left, the community was a bit "quackers."

I love the Joannes in QUAKERTOWN.

A few comments mentioned that the shoe store they went to is not close to home. Maybe the owners of the stores closer to their house were not prepared to shut down to accommodate the filming. Even if they would have been compensated for doing so, they probably value their reputation and customers more than TLC exposure.

One more thing, I consider myself pretty stylish and love dressing up, but I only do it for work, church, and special occasions. Any other day I like comfortable clothes, not sloppy, but cute and definitely not trampy. I am a 43yr old mother to 5. Plus I do not want to embarras my kids. Kate's style is not style. She is trying real hard to flaunt her rich lifestyle by portraying herself to be a haute couture fashion savvy with a "look at me, I am well to do" style. She needs some serious fashion advice. She combines casual with dressy and its a fashion mess. This upper class surburban mom look she wants with those cheap looking clothes she wears are making her look more like a tr@#p. A simple, comfortable, but elegant style would be more appropiate for her if trying to look rich is what she is wanting. Plus all that christianity she portrayed, well let's just say, those clothes are not very christian like. I am a christian, I work in a christian school my kids attend, and like I said I dress stylish but appropiate. I live in a small town, everyone knows I work at this school and I would never run around looking like Kate and I do not have to sacrifice looking appropiately stylish to do it. But what I do for me I do for my kids. My 8 yr old has a wardrobe to die for, beautiful dresses, tops pants, hair accesories, etc.(she does have kick around clothes too). Kate dresses herself to the hilt, but throws whatever on her kids. I bet they only get clothes when it is free. She is a disgrace to real moms.

Hippie Chick said...

Sorry if this has been stated, but if shoe shopping is an episode, then I'm glad I stopped watching years ago. Along with dental appointments, and vacation after vacation, chicken coops, and tidying up the house, this shoe is the ultimate snooze fest. OMG. Shoe shopping? Really??

Hober said...

Looks like Steve was taking the picture of Kate and her "fan", by the reflection in the window

PJ's Momma - Steve is there. In the pic that Kate takes with a fan you can see Steeve through the store glass window --he's the one taking the picture.

PJ's momma said...

Hippie Chick, there was a shoe shopping (back to school) episode last season, at the same (probably) Stride Rite store! It's a recycled snooze fest! Talk about TLC grasping at straws!

fidosmommy said...

The fan picture Steve is taking of Kate and the woman and young girl will be seen on Kate + 8.
The film crew is there too. This is no nice Kate greeting a fan of her own free will, this is Kate being paid to be nice to a fan.

Troy Chula Vista said...

Went to the darkside and looked at the pics of the latest shoe shopping. Now I feel I need to clean my laptop. The comments are amazing, there is one "knowitall" who acts like they have inside info on everything Kate. They tried say that TLC paid the bill for Jon's support. Where do these people get their info? I was going to comment that Knowitall must not have anything else to do but sit and refute EVERY Anti-Kate comment. Even being rude and name calling, etc. The time stamps are every 2 or 3 minutes. However, I didnt want to "signup" so I could comment.

Ellie said...

Wow! I would be ticked if I had made the trip to the outlets (many people drive hours to the nearest outlets) only to have the store closed due to Kate Gosselin! Just ridiculous I would never give my business to Stride Rite again.

Troy Chula Vista said...

I meant to say Jon's Child Support. Knowitall also said that Jodi was trying to take Kates kids. These people on ROL MUST be under the age of 12.

Ellie said...

Last image is so sad...All the kids are hiding their faces around a light pole. Mady is trying to pick one of them up to carry them to the car. SO WRONG!!!!

MickeyMcKean said...

The last 20 seconds or so of this video are of Kate shopping for shoes with the kids.

But to be a little snarky, INF also added a clip from last year, and then fast forwarded to this week with both Kate and Jon's salute to the 1 pap.

http://www.infdaily.com/2010/08/celebrity-news-report-for-august-20th-2010.html

Yep, INF is NOT a fan of the Gosselins - the tide is turning! :)

Troy Chula Vista said...

They probably closed the store because TLC can't control crowds who don't like Kate and hard to edit audio out if people are giving her Krap. This way the store is nice and quiet and she can be as stupid and cackle as much as she wants.

Administrator said...

Actually the kids pay Jon's child support. The kids work for TLC and then from that pot TLC takes out Jon's hush money. Jon then pays Kate the child support. I say why not just let the kids keep their money in the first place why the farce?

The other day I watched the last of the popup episode since I never finished it after realizing how darn boring it is, and one of the pop ups was "Mike is the only crew membe to be with the Gosselins since the beginning."

Oh nice, so now they're bragging about how the crew is just another revolving door? I thought the kids were sooo attached. Don't they miss the original crew of which Mike is the only one left? Another lie. This crew comes and goes just like any other production crew.

Jill said...

I just don't get the picture from Radar. All the kids are huddled around a pole hiding their faces but the car is RIGHT THERE! Why would Kate not let them just get run to the van? No instead they have to stand there scared while TLC gets it all on film??? Cruel Cruel Cruel and NOT ENTERTAINING!!

Why does an 8 year-old need a wardrobe to die for? Kate's kids look like normal kids. That's hardly a negative.

Administrator said...

On this one I have to agree the kids usually if not always, look comfortable and appropriately dressed. I don't care if they wore that shirt yesterday or two days ago or whatever. Geez when I was a kid maybe 7 or so I had my favorite shirt or whatever I wore all the time. That's what mothers are for to stick it in the laundry because a kid is too little to appreciate that's gross, lol!

Also let's be careful that we're not insulting the kids. Their mother is the one spending all this money on her Hollywood wardrobe, not the kids.

Hot In PA said...

So, Admin, the kids are paying for their own child support? Isn't that a hoot? Sheesh!

@kidsblessing...

Those Gymboree freebies ended some time ago. Kate was grabbing so much that they put a limit on the quantity. Then they totally cut her off. I don't know where else she would be getting free clothing for them, but I guess anything is possible.

@9cats...

I liked your "Quackertown," misspelling, and the city's great as well. I'll never go to the Stride Rite there, though!

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

Ahhhhhhh.... another exciting trip to the shoe store. Isn't that just ducky!!!!

And don't the children look absolutely thrilled just being there, being filmed, and being gawked at by strangers.... cough, cough, snark, snark.

You know, when Kate + 8 is cancelled, Kate can become an Organ Grinder and make her kids perform like little trained monkeys.

P.S. Just 3 words to add:

Kate's magical brassiere...

kidsRablesing said...

Admin,
I truly would not want to insult the kids....maybe my words were not put together right and I apologize. But from personal observation, I deal with many little girls on a daily basis....and pretty much they all are into clothes, silly bands, cute shoes. And over the top cute headbands are a fashion hit now. I truly understand the kids being comfortable and all, but Kate has also made it known on one of the episodes, that the kids will have to buy their own cars or something to that matter. I think she indulges herself, but not the kids. As I said before, most of their toys are probably freebies from companies, and probably most of what they get are freebies. I remember how upset Cara was coming out of the nail salon awhile ago over a mani/pedi or something like that. I believe Kate controls every aspect of their lives including their style choices. Because lets face it, pretty much every kid in America is sporting silly bands. And with all the G8's public appearances, I have never seen them wear them once. I have 2 daughters, one prissy and one tomboyish and both like cute clothes and accessories. Just saying.

Administrator said...

I think Kate indulges herself and not the kids, I agree with that. But I don't think she should indulge them by buying "the best of" clothes or whatever best of there is.

She can thank her kids best by saving as much of their money as possible so when they are old enough and want to access what they worked so hard for, it will be there. All of it.

As of this spring, Kate says they're not set for life.

Free Spirits said...

"Because lets face it, pretty much every kid in America is sporting silly bands. And with all the G8's public appearances, I have never seen them wear them once."

=============

Mine don't, thank goodness. They are individuals and don't get caught up in wanting what everyone else has, just because everyone else has it. This includes silly bands.

Perhaps the twins are this way, too. I hope so.

_______________

LOL!! I did the same thing, as do my kids! I remember wearing the same white halter top over and over again, and finally my mom went to the store and bought a half dozen of them. Didn't we all have a favorite pair of shoes that we wore all the time, even though our closet offered us a nice selection?

So the kids wear the same shirt for two consecutive days. So what? They look fine, comfortable, and well...like kids, not like little models for an upscale children's clothing boutique!

speakinoftwins said...

Did Kate get some more work done on her "girls" or it is the weight she has gained back? I guess she gave up running, since we haven't seen her ROL as much. Those thighs are heavier, so the foobs could be haulin' a few more calories around in the them also. Her body looked so much better before she tried to fix it.

Bubbles said...

Why on God's earth can she not let go of that disgusting hair flap over her right eye?!? $20,000 hair and she still can't get it right.

shoecop said...

I wonder if Kate buys a package of socks at the shoe store (expensive to do there instead of Target's price)so her kids can try on shoes correctly and be sanitary? I'm not one of the clean freaks like OCD-fake Kate, but if my kids wore sandals or flip-flops to the shoe store, I always made sure to tuck their thickest (for winter was coming up) pair of socks in my purse before their feet ever touched a pair of shoes, just gross that Ms. OCD doesn't think about this. I have a feeling socks are not a big deal to Kate....smelly, stinky feet of kids.

kidsRablessing said...

I have to say my kids are their own individuals, but they wanted silly bands for the fun they provide. And I highly doubt the twins are allowed to practice their individuality with the kind of mother they have. I grew up with a mother similar to Kate and my mother destroyed my sense of self, made me fearful and stomped on my self esteem.My teens and early 20's were hell because of her treatment. We have been estranged for 5 years since I decided not to let her control my life as an adult.
With my 5 kids, I celebrate their individuality, encourage them and allow them to succeed and fail. I refuse to control them the way my mom did to me.
As far as the G8's clothing I think it is fine, but my feeling is, they wear what Kate says and wants to buy them. When they are teens, this control is going to be challenged.

Higher Heels, Kate! said...

Re: Not discussing Kate's ridiculous shoes because it eggs her on, I say get out the eggs. Talk about her shoes every day, so she'll come out every day in sluttier, higher heeled shoes until she either blows out her veins or fall on her a$$ on camera. Now THAT'S something I'd watch!

Anonymous said...

WTF is up with those shoes!!

Bubbles said...

kidsRablesing - don't worry, Jon got them some Silly Bands at his house, for free of course cuz he gave them a twitter shout-out, HOLLA!

I'd backstalk him on twitter for the date, but I don't want to waste my time...I know it was earlier this summer and the tweet said something like "now there are silly bands all over my house!" after the kids had been there with him.

kidsRablessing said...

I'm confused. One site (Gossip?) shows Kate in a halter black and white top and black shorts while shoe shopping and the other shoe shopping shows Kate in pink. Did they go shoe shopping twice? Was only one of the trips filmed?

I see from the shoe shopping pictures that Collin has taken to wearing dark glasses in an attempt to be incognito. I loved getting new shoes for school when I was little. Kate's kids look like they're being marched to the gulag.

Bored with it said...

So Mady's still in her jean skirt, for what, 4 or 5 days now? And Cara's in the same shorts as yesterday. The boys are wearing old clothes. Does anyone pay attention to these kids?

PA Mom ALSO said...

Hey, Kate...Heeeellllloooo! Sneaker Villa is about eight minutes away! You didn't need to drag those kids to Quakertown for shoes!

TLCexploitspeople said...

Imho, TLC's shows have filmed every family or couple on their reality shows doing the same things, from The Duggars to The Cake Boss to The Little Couple to Big World to Plus 8. I rarely watch any shows on TLC anymore, but I do enjoy Cake Boss and was disappointed to see that show going where the rest have been. TLC gets an idea and repeats it so much from cake to child exploitation of multiples to tattoos to weddings and bikes. If a family fails with TLC's help, they repackage the show as with the Gosselin family and the father and son from American Chopper. And they wonder why people quit watching?

PJ's momma said...

French Canadian and Hot in PA, you are both right. This is exactly the same scenario as filmed/broadcast last year, most likely the exact same store, and the shoes are probably product placement and therefore free. Note that they're usually wearing $2 flip flops from Old Navy or Crocs otherwise. Meantime, old mom is looking miserable as ever and also absolutely ridiculous in another pair of expensive hooker heels (and sorry but I just loathe that french pedicure look) and a mini-skirt/boobie outfit (no bodyguard in sight). To call this farce predictable would be a gross understatement.

attentionseekingmamakate said...

My daughter started being picky about clothes at age 3, by age 9--she would have been mortified if I stepped out of the house like that. I cannot imagine what her older brothers would have thought. I can just hear Kate asking her girls how she looks and fishing for compliments and they have to give positive feedback or else.

What in the heck were they doing in Quakertown? It's over an hour away! No shoe stores in Reading or Lancaster, Kate? Geez...

Maybe that's the only store they could find that would close just to permit the filming!!

Didn't we see a shoe shopping episode before? They certainly are exhausting all filming ideas, aren't they?

lol! Don't forget the standard dragon or butterfly stamp. She will probably convince herself that a "daisy duke" outfit, shirt & all, with those shoes will make her look good. She NEEDS to spend some money on a stylist, problem though if client won't listen to expert advice and client feels more qualified. Sounds like Kate.

Lolly said...

Vanessa good points and you are absolutely correct. I remember Jon saying that Kate needed to wake up about TLC. I have never witnessed anything like this before in my long life. A huge network literally taking over a family. It is truly sad. Kate is lazy in so many ways. Why not be resourceful and make your own path? It seems as if she waits on TLC and her PR team to make a career for her. I recall a remark she made that SHE never thinks about her hair (lol) that she never has new ideas or suggestions what to do with it. Or something similiar to that. I really think this is how she lives her life. TLC/Steve tells her and she does it.

Catherine..excellent point.
