Cold, tense pick-up

Jon and Kate don't speak to each other and barely look at each other as they exchange the children in front of the paparazzi.

Jon and Kate, please get help so that your selfish vanity and anger stops filtering down directly to your children. Divorce can destroy, but not if you don't let it. The divorce is over now; this divorce is no longer about you, it's about the kids whose family you broke apart.

Tamara said...

How can these two morons not understand that this will destroy those children? I'm not a child of divorce, but my parents fought incessantly. Just knowing my parents were mad at each other ate me up inside. I'm 35 now, but can remember how it felt in a heartbeat.

To feel that kind of tension completely changes who a child becomes. Maybe J & K think it's better to not say anything rather than to start a fight, but not speaking to each other says volumes to the children. It also hurts just the same.

IDModo said...

Did it ever occur to Bitchface that she should stick around and make sure that the person getting in the van with those kids is actually Jon? By playing childish games and taking off before the other person is in the van, she could be jeopardizing her children's safety. By the time Jon was in the van, she was too far away to intervene if it was somebody else. They could be clear to Pittsburgh before she could do anything about it.

I know she looked back to check, but that's not good enough. She should stay beside the van until Jon gets in.

maggie said...

What comes to mind is Kate saying over and over again that everything she does is for her kids. Yeah, right. What a sad thing for the kids to go through. And it is forever caught on tape. You would think that after the first video of the switch off at their gate that Kate would at least let Jon drive up to the driveway, park his car, and then get in the blue van with the kids already in it. That way with all the new trees no one would know about it. Now the entire world knows what they do to their kids. How stupid and sad. And the administrator called it right: It is their selfish vanity and anger calling the shots...literally and figuratively. Shame on both of them--they both look like jerks.

SAHM said...

WHAT A BIOTCH!!! Well... lets see if we have another meltdown incident when Jon goes to return the kids after his visitation is over. If it happens again then we can be pretty certain that things ain't kosher at the McMansion.

Catherine said...

What a sick, twisted piece of Krap.

Thankfully, I grew up in a home with happy parents, and I'm raising my kids in a happy two-parent home. But one thing I will never forget was bringing up to my mother her parents' divorce when she was 15. My mom was 60 at the time, and just mentioning the divorce to her caused tears to well up in her eyes. I couldn't believe it. It was my first real taste of what divorce does to children, even decades later.

I can't imagine the pain those children are in. I heard it loud and clear on the video, but imagine them dealing with it every day, and their vicious mother making it as terrible and frightening as possible for them. She should be forced to see a psychiatrist to have custody of those kids. And I think Jon is smart to have a pap there to show her typical, narcissistic, sick, dangerous behavior.

JudyK said...

Just love that she shut the door and walked away before Jon even got there--the van could have rolled or been put in gear by one of the kids. She has no right to those children.

Diane said...

Judy K- You are right about that. Things do happen. I have twin cousins who are a few years older than me. When we were kids, our Dads played ball together and we would go and watch. One time ,my uncle sent them to the car to get him another pack of cigarettes. They were racing each other, arguing over who would get the cigarettes. They dislodged the brake and the car ran over the one twins leg and broke it. He had a cast from his hip to his toes for the rest of the summer. They were probably 12 when that happened.

And, just because they are in a car seat doesn't mean dooddily squat. My 2 and 4 year old grandsons unhook themselves on a regular basis.

Karen said...

This is all staged. Nothing is done by Jon and Kate G. without an audience, either now or later on TLC. They love this attention, regardless of the children! Sad state of affairs at the McMansion. It's not about the kids. It's about these two immature grown-ups.

Westcoaster said...

I agree with the staging; otherwise Mom of the Year would have sent one of the non-nannies or non-people who work for me down with the car; it's a cruel and horrible message that they send their children. The decent thing would be to have Jon come up the drive, away from the cameras - Her Majesty does not even need to talk to him there. But no, let's put the kids out there for photographers.

mary said...

Ok she is a super b*tch. I didn't think she could get any worse, but she manages that quite well in this video. I'm shocked that she actually was willing to walk that far back up the driveway. I'd expect a car and driver waiting for her at the bottom.

Sooooo....how does an unemployed Jon who lives in a small one bedroom afford a Mercedes SUV? Or is that why he can only afford a one bedroom. He fits the white trash/ignorant sterotype quite well.

What's next? said...

Are license plates not required on the front of vehicles in PA? If they are required, then my money is on this being staged since none of the vehicles have front plates. Yes, they have back plates, but the vehicles are moving too fast to read them. The front ones would have be readable.

Dani said...

I don't even need to watch this.
Poor kids. Selfish parents. Warped society.

K8SUCKS said...

Totally staged. The only reason K8 walked down to "meet" Jon was because of the most recent video and subsequent criticism that she had the not-a-nanny drive the van.

And, there are also at least 2 paps - one filming and one taking pictures. Just like when little Collin hid his face.

Heck for all we know the van was empty.

Trucker said...

Jon is a disgusting little wienee to put up with his! I am surprised he leaves his very nice car parked on the road. Between twittering and farming and watching movies, don't you think he could call any attorney and come up with a better solution? These kids are all gonna be neurotic messes.

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

Administrator, you are absolutely right saying that the divorce is about the kids whose family was broken apart. As a child, my parents fought like crazy. Every year (for years) my father would pick fights with my mother, and my mother would threaten to divorce my father. Sometimes the arguements were low grade,not loud enough to cause fear and distress to me and my siblings, and sometimes they went to blows. Guess who was the one caught in the middle trying to mediate? The kids. I can't remember how many times (as a little girl) I would frantically stand in between them (amidst the flying fists and horrible words), trying to physically separate them. I would never worry about my safety. I was more concerned with my parents staying together so that we could continue to be a family. If Kate and Jon think that the kids are not taking note of their horrible behavior, and that they are not internalizing all they hear and see- THEY ARE WRONG! I would not be surprised if one or more of the little Gosselins ended up depressed, nervous, distrusting of people/relationships, insecure etc... Who are these children going to blame? Their parents.

I would hate to be in their shoes, when it all goes down. May God have mercy on the the Gosselin 8, and deliver them from evil.

Catherine said...

To deliver them from evil, He'd have to deliver them from their own mother. Horrible.

Front plates are no longer required. New cars don't even have a space for them in front. But I was surprised to see, in the infamous shrieking for Daddy video, that INF showed the plate in back without blurring it. Not that that ugly van wouldn't be recognizable from a mile away, anyway. But I was surprised.

Payson48 said...

KATE-KATE YOU'RE NOT FACING THE CAMERA. This has to be a first. She ALWAYS faces the camera to show off the boobs. I think she put the extra trees in so we wouldn't see her without the FULL MAKEUP on. We have to wait for the "lot lizard" to show up over dressed and full makeup to go to the store.

Anonymous said...

I agree this was a staged event. Kate is aware of the critisim from the last exchange that was videod and so she was putting in a special appearance. For his part, Jon made sure the event was well documented. The tradgedy is of course the children are not only exposed to their bad behavior, they are being used as pawns. Jon could just as easily been allowed to drive to the front door and picked the children and van up there. What kind of a nurse is she that she doesn't understand the damage she is causing these children.

PatE said...

From what I can see, this is ALL KrazyKate's doing.

I think Jon has kissed KKate's ass enough times. It's not about Jon being selfish. It's all KrazyKate.

Jon thought he was doing the right thing to let KKate have the house, and looked what she did.

emschick1128 said...

Administrator Could you please clarify what the law is regarding child support in most states and whether Jon would really still be required to pay 22k after TLC kicks him to the curb and if his income no longer supports those payments. I know they also take in to consideration how much the woman makes as well and Kate's income and assets I would imagine far exceed Jon's. I know when I have been to court with my ex my income mattered since I was working 2 nursing jobs at the time and making more money than him. And what about earning potential? How much does that play in to things? I an interested to hear your response.

Whatevah said...

Hmmm, not one child cried for their mother. (That ism if there were any children in the van at all.)

JerseyGirl24 said...

TMZ has this on their show tonight. Oh it's funny!

Curious...Perez Hilton told one of our posters that he couldn't use the last video because it was INF property. Why are INF photos passed around, and most INF videos, but not that one?

mama mia said...

What is next, Kate having a gun trailing Jon to make sure he doesn't step foot on HER property? Such tension for those poor kids. Kate is a first class idiot putting them through this. You can see her priorities are screwing over Jon, screwing over Jon and oh yes, putting the screws to Jon.

emschick1128 said...

Perez really flip flops on kate but never has anything positive to say about Jon. Obviously I don't know for sure but I think he just didn't want to show it since it showed Jon in a positive light. I thought it was odd also when the poster your referring to said that was the reason since no one else seems to have a problem with it.

Denise said...

perez lies and plagiarizes and he is full of viruses (his site, I mean)

Dani said...

Not just his site, Denise ....

Administrator said...

How do Kate and Jon expect to raise these kids together for the next decade? Just never speak to each other at all? Pass notes like it's third grade?

Naomi said...

This is all in Kates hands. She is the one who went through with the next season of filming against Jons wishes. She is the one who went through with the divorce even though Jon wanted marriage counseling. She is the one who demands Jon not be permitted to step foot on the property. I am not saying that Jon is perfect. He did go a little crazy after the divorce, however for the sake of her children Kate should have and COULD have chose to handle all this differently.

silimom said...

Not a Kate or Jon fan, but I didn't get the same impression as many of you regarding this drop off. This is what I observed:

1) .01 - Jon pulls back and parks on the grass while Kate pulls the van forward through the gate.

2) .27-.31 in the video - Kate gets out of the van with her water and starts walking back to the house. She raises her left hand and waves goodbye to the kids.

3) .034 - she looks over to make sure Jon is getting out of the car and heading to the van. She pauses and waits for Jon to come near the van.

4) .37-.39 - Kate looks at Jon, raises her waterbottle in acknowledgement that he has the kids and continues walking to the house.

Yes, I agree, it would be nice if they could work their differences out. Obviously, that's not going to happen anytime soon. So all things considered, I think they handled the drop off fairly well. Certainly better than the last time we saw Kate bring the kids down during the summer where she yelled at Jon. IMO, this appeared to be rather civil.

Kelly said...

What a cold, calculating bitch she is. She has been given a pass by all the news media, daytime talk shows and yet she shows utter contempt to the childrens father this way.

The kids are seeing all this and it's confusing to them. When they see their one parent being so indifferent to the other, it hurts them. She may hate Jon and he may hate her too but you have to temper that indifference when the children are around.

It's not enough that she goes on national tv and give her I heart you signs to the children. It's enough to show the father of their kids some modicum of respect when exchanging the kids. Otherwise, it just hurts the kids to see the two people they love more than anything in this world, being at odds with each other and treating each other with such disrespect and disdain.

She is so wrong it goes beyond explanation.

Administrator said...

While I think this is better than Kate screaming at him, or the kids screaming for Jon, or Jon yelling at Kate, I think it's HORRIBLE that these two parents can't say "Hi how you doing? Got the kids, great I'll see you Sunday. I packed the kids' cough medicine it's in the blue bag."

They don't need to have a fireside chat, but they cannot have a civil acknowledgement of each other a few feet apart? They can't make a little small talk for the sake of the children?

This really is quite consistent with Kate estranging everyone in her life she decides doesn't fit her purpose. Jon is simply the latest casualty. Only she is in for a rude awakening when she finally realizes she's going to have to deal with him until the children are 18. Sure she can estrange Aunt Jodi no problem, but this is the children's father and he's probably here to stay.

Administrator said...

We have a great class in L.A. called parents beyond conflict that has helped so many parents in situations like this. Maybe they could find something similar in PA.

Jill said...

Maybe they had that conversation via the phone so that it wasn't taped by the paparazzi.

Administrator said...

Guess that really puts a damper on the sheeple's therpy Jon called the paps then. Their original theory was that because the paps are never there except that one time, he must have called them. (not that that makes sense either) But here they are again so how do they explain this?

Administrator said...

Still no reason for Kate to bolt the other way like Jon has cholera. Why can't she wait for Jon to approach the door then get down? Then say hi to him "have a good time" etc. They are children, both of them.

And as someone pointed out, she left small children alone in a running vehicle. Because of her own bitterness and anger she put them in danger.

Bones said...

Kathy Griffin, George Lopez, and god only knows how many other celebrities have publicly criticized or made fun of Kate, yet they stay in her good graces and she laughs about it. But Jon has to bear her full wrath and can't even breathe right. If he's even 10 minutes late picking up the kids, she goes all Mel Gibson on him.

Either she was born with piss-n-vinegar for DNA, or somewhere in her lifetime something bad happened that rendered her permanently heartless. She is just completely void of warm, compassionate human emotions.

Kelly said...

There is no program that will help the children or the parents with drop offs unless both parents put aside their indifference's and make the exchange palatable.

Kate's anger goes beyond what is acceptable. Kate earns over a million dollars a year. Jon earns almost nothing. Kate has the mansion. Jon has a 1 bedroom apartment. Kate is always on national television. Jon is but a thought on a neighborhood blog.

Kate got the house, the cash, the kids and Jon got the shaft. Why then is she still pissed at this loser? She should be exchanging the kids, smiling, enjoying her downtime, kissing the kids goodbye and going her way.

She doesn't do this. She acts like Jon is the lucky one, screwing her over and she's struggling. She's a nut case. What's with her pink telephone all the time in her hand or at her ear?????

This woman is a certifiable nutcase and I hope the real stars at the Emmy Awards booo her ass off the stage as she doesn't deserve the recognition or the same platform as those who are there, worked for it.

Kate's comeuppance is coming. I just hope it's as public as her public display of flipping the world the bird. Be careful Kate. Everyone you stepped on along the way up the ladder, you're surely going to see on the way down.

I've got more to say but one of my Yorkies is sitting on my lap and just squeezed out a Kate Gosselin that could clear a stadium.

************************************************

To answer your question... no they are not required on the front in PA. However, in VA they are. We have 2 vehicles... 1 registered in PA because my husband is military and 1 registered here in VA that we had to put a plate on the front of. Stupid in my opinion not to mention that we have to pay personal property tax on the vehicle registered in VA.

JudyK said...

First, YAY Kelly! Agree 100% w/ every single word you wrote. And I personally think all those trees were added under Steve's supervision to hide the fact that he's there so much. She never cared about the kids' privacy before. This is about Kart's privacy.

fidosmommy said...

Re: the Motherly emotions pictures.

Where are those taken? It sure doesn't look like their house. There are glass doors inside and outside, a pink sign that says something has arrived, a yellow star hanging in the background. It looks very institutional to me.
Maybe it's their school?

Hot In PA said...

"Cold, tense pick-up"

I didn't see anything tense about it. The definition of tense is "under mental or emotional strain." Who was under mental or emotional strain? It was what it was. There was no fighting. She dropped off the kids; he picked them up. She can't be civil to him, and in a perfect world, a greeting would be preferable. But it is much better that it was handled the way it was. Kate's not going to ever learn to love her kids more than her ex. This is much better than an angry confrontation with the kids witnessing it. She's without feelings for anyone but herself, and I would imagine the kids are used to it by now. It's tragic, but let's face it...she's beyond any kind of parenting and she'd laugh at the idea of "classes." Narcissists believe that it's all about them. They're right and the world is wrong. It's not going to change.

Re: "The kid's safety and the possibility of abduction." Wouldn't you think that he called her and told her that he was there? How else would she have known to load the kids up and drive them to the end of the driveway?

Re: "Front license plates." None is required in PA, and haven't been for as long as I can remember, which is a very long time. Front plates slow down production and is an added cost to taxpayers.

Re: "The cost of the Benz." Do we know that this was a purchase and not a lease? The Benz SUV is not the most expensive car in their line, and leasing is quite affordable.

Re: "Kids crying for their mother?" Did you hear anything from the kids? Maybe your audio is better than mine! Was anything said?
Re: "Maybe there wasn't anyone in the car." If there wasn't anyone in the car, then how could they cry for their mother?

Kelly: Could it be that she is pissed because she never believed he would actually leave, and when he did, he found himself a girlfriend? Could she be pissed because she has to PAY a staff to do everything that he did when he was her slave?

Kelly said...

Those pictures of Kate saying goodbye to her kids weren't taken today, yesterday or this past week. Kate was wearing the same .......pardon my pun and I hate to say it..... but she was wearing a "Kelly Green" outfit, complete with her foobs hanging out and her hooker heels yesterday.

The outfit on this last posting http://www.gossipcenter.com/kate-gosselin/kate-gosselins-motherly-emotions-401296

Was not yesterday and was absolutely NOT at their home. Another attempt by Kate and her handlers to show what an intouch Mom she trys to be.

Not sure when those pics were taken but I can assure you, it was way before Bald Head Island and not after her Bad Head hair treatment at Ted Gibsons studio, yesterday. Nice try Kate. We're a tad bit smarter than you.

You cannot see inside the tinted windows, there was not ONE peep when K8 got out /Jon got in.

6 young children who sobbed when Jon was leaving and not one of them cheers to see daddy ? No big " hey kiddos!" from Jon when he gets in the van ?

Something stinks.

Kelly said...

K8sucks,
I agree with you. Wasn't a peep, the pap was there to take pics, a BMW was parked behind Jon's Mercedes when he pulled it over to the curb and total silence. You'd think that 5 year olds would be over exhuberant to see their dad but there was total silence when he got into the van.

Seems to be staged. Everything the Gobblins do is staged.

emschick1128 said...

The pics of Kate on Gossip Center are so obviously staged and totally out of character for that miserable bitch. I just have to laugh at her wearing dresses and heels all the time! What mother especially one as busy as Kate runs errands dressed the way she does? How about a pair of reasonable length shorts,tank or nice shirt(minus the boobs hanging out) and a pair of cute ballet flats or sandals? She reminds me of a man in drag in most of her pics.

Laura D. said...

Kelly, loved your comment of August 18, 2010 5:48 PM. "Kate's comeuppance is coming. I just hope it's as public as her public display of flipping the world the bird. Be careful Kate. Everyone you stepped on along the way up the ladder, you're surely going to see on the way down."

The only thing I can add is that old cliche: Be careful of the toes you step on today, as they may be attached to the ass you'll have to kiss tomorrow.

Catherine said...

The twins are shown wearing the same outfits with Jon that they were wearing earlier in the day with Kate in her ugly green dress. They were in the van. The pap was much farther away this time. The only thing fishy around here (besides Kart) are the Kate photos. It's weird how sociopaths mimic other people's shows of emotion, but it's so stilted and phony. Kate's not even a good sociopath. But she's working damn hard at it.

silimom said...

Admin, I agree, it would be nice for them to talk to each other. However, how do we know that they didn't work out all of the drop off details like "the cough medicine is in the blue bag" on the phone?

We have an extremely good relationship with my husband's ex and there were a number of times where we or they dropped the kids off and watched from the car as they went inside whichever parent's house they were at that week. Not because we didn't want to see each other, not because we hated each other, but because we either a) had covered everything with each other earlier on the phone or b) didn't have much to discuss because we had already discussed kid related stuff earlier in the week.

Now, I'm not saying that Jon and Kate have a good working relationship. In many ways, the evidence would tend to suggest otherwise. However, this really seemed like a standard kid exchange to me, a non-event. And whether it was for a photo op or not, I take the fact that they acknowledged each other and were civil to be a step in a positive direction for this family. True, that could change in the blink of an eye - Kate's disposition being as changeable as the wind on any given day - but for now things appear calm. Hopefully it's the start of a trend.

My guess is they got their a$$es whooped after that last display of hysteria that embarrassed their mother, so now they don't make a peep in her presence. I'll bet once Jon got in the van and shut the door, they all exhaled and flicked her off behind her back.

emschick1128 said...

I just read Kate's nauseating blog on TLC about their trip to NC. She is so full of crap with the things she writes, relaxing, creating more memories of course blah,blah,blah. A psychiatrist would have a field day diagnosing Kate.

Dani said...

I never heard of "Zimbio" but did anybody read the caption?
"Kate looked at Steve's package twice ..."

silimom said...

Actually, if you listen very carefully to the video, I do believe that you can hear a "Hi Daddy!". But I could be wrong. The camera clicking IS rather loud.

Administrator said...

Kate probably advised the kids not to shout for joy when they see Daddy under penalty of severeness.

And yeah, didn't hear any shrieks for Mommy not to go.

Administrator said...

Sillimom, I agree that it's better than them screaming at each other. But nothing suggests these two have reconciled. For starters, Jon is still forced to drop his children off at the end of the driveway like milk bottles. If Kate loved her children at all she would allow him to either drop the kids off on the property, or drop the children off at a neutral, private location.

Hot, do you think it's healthy for the children that their mother and father can't get along?

So which one called the paps, was it Jon or Kate?
I have a feeling it was Kate.
She usually sends the hired help to p/u the van but she walked down there so she could be photographed.

The paps don't hang out at the house now that it has the "strategic landscaping."

Kelly said...

Silimom,
Are you serious??? You think that was a civil exchange?? Kids hate to see their parents apart and hate even more to see animous between them when the parents are together.

That exchange was as acrimonious as a WWF tournament. My ex wife and I hated each other more than a cat and a dog but we managed to keep it all together when the kids were around and put on the "shit face" so the kids thought we were happy.

My divorce was way bigger and worse than Jon and Kate's but when visitation was in place, we put on the smile, acted civil and the kids left their mothers home feeling safe, happy and without angst.

It took years, after the divorce for my ex and I to come to grips that we moved on but in deference to my ex, she always was positive when exchanges took place. She didn't ban me from the family home, didn't talk down about me to the kids and made sure that they were looking forward to seeing me during my visitations, without making the kids feel like they had to take a side.

Our marriage of 19 years trumps the Gobblins marriage by a decade and despite our differences, we both were adult enough to realize that being together wasn't healthy for us and wasn't healthy for our 3 kids. Despite our animosity towards each other, going through the legal stuff and the ultimate divorce, we put on our best game face and made sure the kids were happy, healthy and content.

Kate continues to play the victim and treats her kids father like a second class citizen and the more she does this, the more damage she is doing to the children. As much as Jon is a flaming asshole, and we all know this, the kids don't know it.

Put the kids first. Keep the adult feelings to yourself and everyone wins in the end.

Of course drop off and pick up is at the end of the driveway. Since the trees went up, how else would the paps be able to get their pics? This is all done for show folks. They want to keep people talking.

"We had already been plagued daily by the paparazzi for a few months and felt hunted down like a family of deer....It was mandatory at that time that I give my kids some carefree time to breathe easy, as well as some additional undivided attention from mommy....And so we found the “delightfully boring” fun on Bald Head Island to be the perfect prescription for the respite we needed."

Kate claims Bald Head Island will be a new Gosselin summer tradition, just like all those other Gosselins traditions the family does every year.

Jon was right, Kate does contradict herself. How is this a real vacation when the TLC crew tags along on your trip?

Sorry...carry on.

Does she say if this will become a tradition once TLC cuts her loose? Will she pay $8,000 for a rental home out-of-pocket? Heck, she wouldn't even take them to the Statue of Liberty when TLC wasn't paying!

Dani said...

Maybe she and TLC signed some kind of contract where they will pay for a summer trip every year AS LONG AS they can film it. They know that people will always be interested in these kids so I can just see TLC making a promise of that sort.

Wonder if the City Council of Bald Head will be discussing this new invasion in their quaint little town.

Administrator said...

Let me get this straight. Kate drags the kids to N.C. to get away from the paps taking photos from the street, yet brings a film crew along to film the kids up close and personal right in their faces? Then airs it as an episode where we get to hear every last detail of this trip. Yeah, that makes sense Kate.

Well, guess what? You may think he's a flaming one, but he's the ONLY one who shows up at school for ALL of the kids' activities, supports them at all events, attends special functions, and at least makes an effort there when his kids are involved in something where a parent should be present.

_______________________________________

I can see her point ( not ), since Bald Head Island was so incredibly paparazzi free last summer and no one ( cough, cough ) took bookoos of pictures of her in her numerous bikinis, and nobody got pictures of the kids playing in the sand, nobody got pictures of Collin dumping a bucket of sand on his head, nobody got pictures of Steve chauferring them around in the golf cart, nobody got pictures of Kate sitting by the pool......

why Bald Head Island is the perfect place to take your kids when they feel hunted down like deer and need a place to breathe easy. ( I'm shaking my head and trying to understand her logic...or lack there of ).

Sounds more to me like mommy needed more bikini photo ops so she will hopefully be included in this years tabloids Hottest Beach Bodies edition, since she was covered up a tad too much in Alaska and wasn't able to flaunt the girls there.

If she truly had the kids' best interests at heart, TLC would NOT have been there. She's so full of crap.

Lauren said...

I saw the picture on JJ that Jaye pointed out and I thing Celeb Gossip got it wrong. But it doesn't change my opinion that it was staged.

Gossip Center lied.

Must Love Dogs said...

Those kids were with Jon yesterday afternoon, he even tweeted about having them. Photos of her in the other site was from another time. Her publicist is trying to clean up damage control. They do read the blogs.

AuntieAnn said...

Of course, it this wasn't staged, Kate would have sent one her nannies down to meet Jon. But if there's a camera withing 10 miles of her, she sniffs it out like a blood hound and comes running. She'll never miss an opportunity to get her picture taken.

And just exactly how many cars does it take to pick up the kids anyway?

Sadie said...

That blog of hers is TLCs interns cleaning her image up, if you read the new familys original blog you'll understand how much TLC has control of these families on what they do and say. The new family can continue their original blog as long as they do not mention too much info on their family cause it might interfere with filming the episodes. They can continue their original blog seeing they have had one prior to signing on with TLC is what they stated. I believe her blog is written by an intern and that is not her words but TLC.

Sadie said...

They also mentioned that they have to be careful what they tell their friends and family about filming and what goes on behind the cameras. It just sounds so strange, but I guess they need the money.

Administrator said...

It irritates me to no end the way Kate acts like just one day the paparazzi showed up and started stalking her through no fault of her own. She is such a victim in this, she takes zero responsibility. And her excuse that they wouldn't go away even if she stopped is the biggest copout I've ever heard. Well maybe they woudln't go away RIGHT AWAY but they're not going to start the clock ticking on them going away until she stops exploiting these kids.

She put her family on TV. She wouldn't quit even when the marriage was going south. She drove Jon away. She divorced Jon. But she is the victim here.

I thought I read somewhere that part of the production for the show is done in N.C., maybe that is why they go there for vacations?

Anonymous said...

Since you can't miss the fact that the "team" reads all of the blogs, and try to recover from the negative things kate does/says, maybe we should make up what should happen in the next kate+8, be their writers?

Dani said...

Yes. I think they should go bowling. That's my suggestion for a show idea. Show Kate freaking out over wearing shoes worn by others. See Kate screaming. See Kate being the only one allowed to use the bumpers. See Kate be a poor sport when the kids get a better score. See Kate be rude to workers at bowling alley.

AuntieAnn said...

Anonymous,

I'll play.

"Kate and her adorable brood are blindfolded to play pin the tail on the map of the United States to see where TLC takes them for their next exciting vacation! The winner will be the person who's tail lands nearest the most exclusive luxury resort in America. You won't wanna miss this fun-filled, full of surprises episode!"

Julianna said...

Wouldn't happen. The kids (and Kate) would get their own $250.00 bowling shoes, and each would get a custom-made bowling ball. After the show, everything would be dumped.

Remember the camp-out at the "old" house, and all of the expensive sporting equipment, including new tents that they bought and never used again? I think at that time bloggers had figured that the little overnight adventure carried a price tag of $6,000 for supplies and equipment.

Dani said...

I know, new everything x 9.

Anonymous said...

Where are those taken? It sure doesn't look like their house. There are glass doors inside and outside, a pink sign that says something has arrived, a yellow star hanging in the background. It looks very institutional to me.

Maybe it was taken at their "home away from home"...y'know, the UPS/FED EX store?

maggie said...

Oh I want to scream! She can't give her kids SOME carefree time to breathe easy and some undivided mommy attention in her own private home with private swimming pool and private acres to play. The paparazzi aren't going to bother them in their home or their own front/backyard or private pool.

Kate said in one of her last tv episodes that she tries to give her kids a paparazzi free life as best she can. So the best she can do is "to have her children being plagued DAILY by the paparazzi for MONTHS on end. That is the BEST she can do by her own admission. And by golly, the only remedy is a trip to a public beach to be hounded by more paparazzi and a film crew!

If her children are plagued daily by the paps don't you think it is way past time to pull the plug on the tv show.

JON: Please print this out as evidence that your precious children are being PLAGUED and HUNTED down DAILY for MONTHS by the paparazzi. Take this to TLC, the media, the courts, ANYONE that can help you pull the plug on this circus. Kate is admitting to this. This is her word. Kate has millions to support those kids. Do something now, please.

Please someone, anyone write a book about this insanity.

Puleez. K8 doesn't know even know what "respite" means.

K8SUCKS said...

Hmmm. Haven't looked at the pics but if you all say that the kids were with Jon ( and he is wearing the clothing from the latest video) , then I guess that throws my theory out the window.

On a sadder note, I hope your theories about the kids getting "punished" are also wrong but are probably right on the money =(

Dude this ain't gonna happen. The "real stars" have couth and class and wouldn't lower themselves to booing a non-entity like Kart. Their lack of response would actually make that dingbat think she is accepted and one of them. GAG.

And, I guess Chris the pap must be a really imposing figure. ;-)

Actually you sound like someone "in the know." I believe it's true that he's the only one that shows up for those things. Just wondering how you can say it so confidently.

I've seen it with my own two eyes, neither of which is wonky! And it's true. Absolutely. He may be many things, but he should never be accused of not supporting his kids in their activities.

Not Jon, no. His post would be typed in internet shorthand! ;-)

Interesting. As I said, I don't doubt Jon is there for those things. I think Jon is on the right track now... If only he would get his children off tv.

***---***---***

I absolutely agree. I had hopes for him when he pulled the plug. Why he did what he did, I don't know. I cannot understand how he can watch the videos of those children being dragged all over God's green earth and not feel remorse. Who knows...maybe he does, and he's in this thing so deep he cannot extricate himself from it. I would hope, though, that the more time he spends with his kids, the more stories he hears from them and how sick they are of having cameras in their faces. That is, if they are not too scared to open up to him. It wouldn't surprise me if they were under orders from their mother not to repeat anything that goes on during filming.

But, kids will be kids, and I would think that some of them are not going to keep quiet...perhaps the twins will give him an ear-full. All we can hope is that the show will be cancelled, and his taking the kids off television will be a non-issue.

Mare said...

The only way that show will be cancelled is if the haters don't tune in. TLC is antagonizing people with their "will mommy meltdown?" ads. They know they need the haters to give them the ratings. There are not enough stupid people out there that will watch this show still believing that Kate is supermom. Don't fall for it 'haterz'. Please, for the sake of those kids, don't bite!

The pics of Kate on Gossip Center are so obviously staged and totally out of character for that miserable bitch. I just have to laugh at her wearing dresses and heels all the time! What mother especially one as busy as Kate runs errands dressed the way she does? How about a pair of reasonable length shorts,tank or nice shirt(minus the boobs hanging out) and a pair of cute ballet flats or sandals? She reminds me of a man in drag in most of her pics.

Are license plates not required on the front of vehicles in PA?

************************************************

To answer your question... no they are not required on the front in PA. However, in VA they are. We have 2 vehicles... 1 registered in PA because my husband is military and 1 registered here in VA that we had to put a plate on the front of. Stupid in my opinion not to mention that we have to pay personal property tax on the vehicle registered in VA.

Kelly said...

There is no program that will help the children or the parents with drop offs unless both parents put aside their indifference's and make the exchange palatable.

Kate's anger goes beyond what is acceptable. Kate earns over a million dollars a year. Jon earns almost nothing. Kate has the mansion. Jon has a 1 bedroom apartment. Kate is always on national television. Jon is but a thought on a neighborhood blog.

Kate got the house, the cash, the kids and Jon got the shaft. Why then is she still pissed at this loser? She should be exchanging the kids, smiling, enjoying her downtime, kissing the kids goodbye and going her way.

She doesn't do this. She acts like Jon is the lucky one, screwing her over and she's struggling. She's a nut case. What's with her pink telephone all the time in her hand or at her ear?????

This woman is a certifiable nutcase and I hope the real stars at the Emmy Awards booo her ass off the stage as she doesn't deserve the recognition or the same platform as those who are there, worked for it.

Kate's comeuppance is coming. I just hope it's as public as her public display of flipping the world the bird. Be careful Kate. Everyone you stepped on along the way up the ladder, you're surely going to see on the way down.

I've got more to say but one of my Yorkies is sitting on my lap and just squeezed out a Kate Gosselin that could clear a stadium.

Jill said...

Maybe they had that conversation via the phone so that it wasn't taped by the paparazzi.

Administrator said...

While I think this is better than Kate screaming at him, or the kids screaming for Jon, or Jon yelling at Kate, I think it's HORRIBLE that these two parents can't say "Hi how you doing? Got the kids, great I'll see you Sunday. I packed the kids' cough medicine it's in the blue bag."

They don't need to have a fireside chat, but they cannot have a civil acknowledgement of each other a few feet apart? They can't make a little small talk for the sake of the children?

This really is quite consistent with Kate estranging everyone in her life she decides doesn't fit her purpose. Jon is simply the latest casualty. Only she is in for a rude awakening when she finally realizes she's going to have to deal with him until the children are 18. Sure she can estrange Aunt Jodi no problem, but this is the children's father and he's probably here to stay.

mama mia said...

What is next, Kate having a gun trailing Jon to make sure he doesn't step foot on HER property? Such tension for those poor kids. Kate is a first class idiot putting them through this. You can see her priorities are screwing over Jon, screwing over Jon and oh yes, putting the screws to Jon.

Whatevah said...

Hmmm, not one child cried for their mother. (That ism if there were any children in the van at all.)

Catherine said...

To deliver them from evil, He'd have to deliver them from their own mother. Horrible.

Front plates are no longer required. New cars don't even have a space for them in front. But I was surprised to see, in the infamous shrieking for Daddy video, that INF showed the plate in back without blurring it. Not that that ugly van wouldn't be recognizable from a mile away, anyway. But I was surprised.

What's next? said...

Are license plates not required on the front of vehicles in PA? If they are required, then my money is on this being staged since none of the vehicles have front plates. Yes, they have back plates, but the vehicles are moving too fast to read them. The front ones would have be readable.

Karen said...

This is all staged. Nothing is done by Jon and Kate G. without an audience, either now or later on TLC. They love this attention, regardless of the children! Sad state of affairs at the McMansion. It's not about the kids. It's about these two immature grown-ups.
