Kate grabs up Emmys freebies

A pink Palm Pre phone, a red Vera Bradley duffel bag, Body Shop products, Pretty Ballerina flats, Vintage Revolution jeans and an AMC Signature pass. AMC gets you and a guest into the movies for free every day for the next year.

And oddly enough, Kate refused to get her photo taken with any of the freebies. Why, embarrassed about your greed? Or just trying to avoid the IRS.

Still a greedy grifter, Kate? Who is keeping this woman's career afloat? Joan Rivers didn't make any secret of her feelings about KG on the Fashion Police. Joan said something like "Go home." Right on, Joan!

AuntieAnn said...

How nice. Ratclaws and Kate can sit in the theater balcony and swap tonsils every day for a whole year...free.

Hippie Chick said...

I knew I read that somewhere!! What a louse. Has she no class? Oh wait... She is not above anyone. Certainly not above the real stars that deserved to be there. I really cannot stand that woman. She is a low-life, selfish, self-entitled twit. And this whole thing with her wanting to be an actress, she has to many issues, no one will hire her. She thinks she's to good for direction. It's her way or no way.

Markiesnana said...

I saw that.
Joan Rivers said she couldn't stand Kate and then said " Go home and learn the names of your kids!"

Betcha she was advised not to advertise all the freebies by her manager & PR people. They are all acutely aware of what the public's opinion has been of her, and that she is famous for constantly demanding & receiving free products from various companies already.

I say that it's too late to alter Kate's public image...

overthehill said...

why on earth do they give people who have more than enough these freebies.

Judy said...

This video from Access Hollywood makes me want to just slap the crap out of her. I hate how fake she is,acting like she knows fashion.
But..the worse is how she throws Jon under the bus at the end.
Can't stand this pitiful excuse for the human race. Her parents must be SO proud of her.

Linda said...

Judy, that had to be the single most boring interview I have EVER seen. Lord, even when the topic is HER she's boring and unlikeable. And that's her favorite topic!

And I suddenly felt sorrier for the kids than ever and here's why: MY mom was very very much like Kate (yeah, unfortunately). She was a narcissistic asshole who thought only of herself, we were barely on her radar (we didn't make her any money), her ENTIRE attitude with everyone and everything in life was "what can you/it do for ME?" She was a world-class taker and extremely superficial (appearance was EVERYTHING).

BUT. Her behavior, while well-known to members of our family (absolutely no one speaks to her, ever, no one) is not recorded, thousands of hours of it, for the WORLD to see. I'm at least thankful for that. Lord that would be hard to live down.

Moose Mania said...

At least we won't see those freebies ending up in a children's consignment shop!

I wonder if she was disappointed with the gifts -- maybe she was expecting a car, and a few private, intimate cruises for herself and a bodyguard!

I can't see that the taxes on those items is going to make a dent in her bank account. The AMC movie pass is pretty funny...I mean, how many movies out there right now are even worth seeing?

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

Let's see... I presume that since she is doing it "all for the kids," then I guess she picked out the items for them- right?

The pink Palm Pre phone is for Cara,
Mady gets the red Vera Bradley duffel bag.
The tups can divvy up between them the Body Shop products, Pretty Ballerina flats, Vintage Revolution jeans and share an AMC Signature pass...

I hope the kids enjoy their ballerina flats & Vintage Revolution jeans... right Kate?

Friggin' doubt it. They did not earn those items, "Mother Thing" did.

NT said...

They should have told her that she couldn't take anything if she did not want to be photgraphed!! What a DIVA!!!! I'll bet no one else who went into those swag tents said No. I also read that when she went to the ET party that she talked to no one and would not answer any questions!! That's really bad cos you were there "working", not because you had a right to be there!! When I looked around I did not see any interviews of her at the party,just her trying to interview other people. She has major additude and I really wish someone would slap her silly.

Anne said...

And what do the boys get?

Oh that's right, they're just icky boys, they get squat.

Sabreena said...

"Kate refused to get her photo taken with any of the freebies" ... more likely, the sponsors ordered that absolutely no photos of their products were to be taken with KG.

AuntieAnn said...

Re: the Access Hollywood vid

So...Kate says she doesn't have to deal with Jon anymore. Boy is she wrong. She'll have to deal with him for as long as they are her kids' father even if it has to be through lawyers. Isn't this the same woman who vowed to keep it nice when they split up. She lied again, but that comes naturally to Kate Gosselin.

At least Jon says he wishes Kate well. He will reap rewards when the kids grow up for not bad mouthing her. They will know who loved them and who used them. I think he's seeing the harm they've done and is at least trying to do something about it. He should get some credit for that.

Kate of course doesn't give a shit about dissing Jon. She's done with him and will be done with her kids too when they're of no more use to her. She's probably hoping the sooner the better so she can get on with her -cough- career in Hollywood.

Judy said...

Linda~ I'm sorry that you had to endure someone in your life that was like Kate Gosselin.
I simple can't imagine how miserable those children must be.
To think that the only true love and respect that they recieve is from their Daddy and the babysittersisjust sad.
Life just isn't fair sometimes,is it ?

Anonymous said...

Off topic - Entertainment Weekly has a blistering review of last night's Kate Plus 8. Apparently it was the New York visit show. Worth a read.

Linda said...

Here's the article, it made me chuckle:

http://watching-tv.ew.com/2010/08/30/kate-plus-8-kate-gosselin-emmys/

Gad, how can people even stand to be around her? Her kids don't have much choice right now, but how does that film crew not brain her with a camera?

Anon 1 said...

Since when did Khate Gosselin EVER refuse to have her picture taken????????

JerseyGirl24 said...

From Entertainment Weekly's review of Kate+8 last night...the last line is priceless:

"Then back at home in Pennsylvania, safely in front of the show’s confessional-camera and presumably well air-conditioned, Kate proclaimed it all a “great life experience.”

I think I heard the sound of a spoon scraping gravel; I suspect it was nine-going-on-10 Cara, digging a tunnel beneath the foundation of the Gosselin home, making her escape."

Lauren said...

No photos, eh.
That's rather unusual for a famewhore like Kate.
Perhaps she was stung by the IRS for her other freebies and wants to be discreet now.

Linda said...

I've been thinking about something: you know how Jon haters jumped all over him for getting a diamond earring stud and wearing Ed Hardy there for a while? And going out partying?

Now that I've looked at that clip from when they took the older girls to New York a few years back, I think Kate's descent into madness post-divorce has been FAR worse and much much longer. In fact, Jon's seems to have subsided and hers is still going on and getting worse: the plastic surgery, the tanning, the expensive badly-done extensions, the hooker heels on all occasions fitting or not, the crazy going to the club to get a man outfits even when taking the kids shopping, the lack of focus on the kids, the famewhoring, all of it. Hers is SO much worse.

PJ's momma said...

C'mon, guys. You knew she'd grab all she could! None of this is a surprise. Seeing all the post-Emmy and K+8 feedback makes me think that Kate is like the Osama bin Laden of TV, and pop culture in general. She has a few loyal fundamentalists who follow her (and who everyone else considers nutso) and the rest of the world despises her. And all this hatred is directed toward the mother of 8 innocent children, but she did to herself - and them. To an average person,that would be a horrible burden to bear. But Kate is not normal and will keep plugging along with a sh*t-eating grin on her fake face until she is snuffed out like an advent candle.

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

Thanks so much for the heads up on EW's recap
of last night's "Kate + 8"!!!

I actually forgot (scratch that), did not care if it was on or not. But, I do appreciate reading the scathing reviews of it ;o)

Oh Kate, Kate, Kate- I am so scared for you. One day, when you are old, and feeble; your children are going to take every single thing from you that is rightfully theirs. Then, you'll be dropped off at the nearest old age home, where you will be "left alone with strangers".

Your bad behavior makes me so angry.
I cannot wait to see you dramatically fall from the much undeserved grace that God gave to you.

No amount of crocodile tears is going to save you then, mommie dearest.

swag ain't all that said...

I am no celebrity, but grew up in LA and was lucky enough to get freebies/swag through friends in the biz. It's all fun, getting stuff for free, of course, but here's the clincher: it's free stuff you don't want in the first place. It's not nearly as much fun as the high you get buying a purse/outfit/whatever that you really want and can't live without. You know what I mean; take a gorgeous purse for example. You see it, fall in love, but it's not on sale, a little too expensive but so beautiful you whip out the credit card anyway and buy it. Then you stare at it in its box and wrap it back up once you get home. THAT'S fun. Not getting something you never would have bought in the first place and doesn't tickle you the way that purse does. So don't be jellus of Kate. She's too greedy and naive to realize the freebies aren't all that.

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

I understand that last night on "Fashion Police", Joan Rivers REFUSED to dignify Kate's presence at "The Emmys". I LOVE JOAN RIVERS!!!

She said: "why don't you go home and try to learn the names of your children."

FINALLY! Someone in the entertainment business that has common sense!

Now Joan is truly a star- she deserves her fame and fortune-and DESERVED to be at The Emmys (or any awards show, heck- ANY SHOW). Not Kate. It's insulting to all the real stars, that Kate was there.

Tell it like it is, Joan!

A Bear in Stillettos said...

Hi Pink. I often wonder how the real stars truly feel about Kart's presence (despite their pretend nicey-nice). Those of us in the corporate world know the girl in the office who's shtoop'n the boss & gets the promotion, or the guy who we all know lied on his resume. We resent those people, right? Seems like all Kart had to do was abuse her husband & kids, re-invent herself as a tramp, and voila!! Insta-star. Must be insulting to the real stars who worked so hard to earn their status.

EXCEPT that you know that Khate will brag to everyone within hearing distance.... "this is the phone I got at the Emmys, this is the VB bag I got at the Emmys"

She'll be using that swag to lord it over any and all people brave enough to get near her....

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

Hi A Bear in Stillettos :o)

Yes, it has to be a sore spot for real stars.

Really sad.

It's just mind boggling that while there are far more talented folks not getting a break, Kate "magically" gets wishes granted. And she has the nerve to complain, criticize, & mock everyone & everything. Especially her children.

I just don't know... sometimes I wonder if there is any justice anymore.

browneyedgirl said...

Oh, I think there's justice.
Remember, the wheels of the gods grind slowly, but they grind exceedingly fine.

++++++++++++++

I don't think that too many people comes within hearing distance...and we know she only has one friend, so there's not a big audience out there to which she can brag!!
Unless it's to Henry, the Amish farmer, and I'm pretty sure he has no use for an unlimited AMC movie pass!!

Betsy said...

I have 5 words to Kate Gosselin, "God don't like Greedy people"

Anonymous said...

Grifter Kate can keep her one time only Emmy freebies in a closet, set up the loot as a shrine in her bedroom, try to sell the stuff at her favorite consignment shop, Ebay or at a yard sale seated in her cheap white plastic chair. It doesn't matter. The Gosselincity train is a over insured wreck being pushed into a TLC warehouse that will be shipped out to a dumpster with the year end, don't let the door hit you in the ***, TLC refuse.

SAHM said...

Is the B!tch back yet from her Emmy appearance out in LA or is she still dragging it out in hopes to meet w/ producers/directors for future possibilities of becoming a "somebody"???

prairiemary said...

Time to put the no-mom-in-sight calendar up again, backtrack to before the Emmys.

Anonymous said...

I think if anything Kate is probably looking for a husband to take care of her and provide for her 8 kids. And she will probably get some rich Hollywood type or some guy with some kind of wealth. Because she is now moving in these kind of circles. I don't believe she is gonna go out with some average Joe from Pennsylvania unless he has some kind of money. She is too selfish and greedy and is determined to hang on to every shred of lifestyle provided to her by TLC. There are a million fools out there & one of them will be really stupid enough for Kate to take advantage of and to dig into half of his fortune and make it her own. Until then, we will have to keep seeing her face on TV.
