WOW another view from the rear....twice in one week!! Love the satin shorts kate!
Spending the whole day wearing them clod hoppers bet by the time she got to the front door she kicked them off and thought, what was I thinking. =)
I think her big toe was soooo swollen by the time she walked up the driveway in those clodhoppers she had to soak the feet with the shoes in a bucket of epsom salt just to get the straps off. I sure hope she got Steve out of the spare tire hole before she got out of the van. Otherwise, Steve is going to be walking the parking lot at Jon's apartment looking for someone to protect. Steve is such a consumate bodyguard.
Kate should lend those shoes to Sarah Palin's husband. I'm pretty damn sure he could use them in his next iditarod race. Those things are RAD
When I read the story over at the other site about the towels over the kids heads (Michael Jackson) style I thought, WTF. We all know its Chris taking the pictures and not a herd of Paps like they wanted us to believe. The kids are just so tired of the filming and Chris, plus J and Kates ploy to stay in the public eye, they are now throwing in the towel. Poor lil ones. = (
"Kelly said.... sure hope she got Steve out of the spare tire hole before she got out of the van. "HAHAHahaha I JUST thinking about old Stevey. Where he might be? LOL
Jon/Kate loves the drama..I remember when Jon/Kateplus8 would fist come on Kate would say,"It's a crazy life but it our life.." I believe every word of it..It is still a crazy life b/c they want it like that,and as long as it like that they are making money off of it as well using the children..It's so silly of Kate not to let Jon pick the kids up at the house..Kate is jealous of Ellen,and the children is paying the price b/c their mom is so stupid..
Stevie is at Kates house giving her a foot massage.
I have a theory about why she is dressing like an under-paid call girl. I don't think it's for Steve. I remember in one episode where Jon said he preferred long, blond hair. He had always put her down for the way she dressed...no taste, frumpy, matronly-like.They get divorced. She goes platinum blond. Gets extensions. Gets new boobs. Dresses like a 20-year-old. Could all of this be to make a statement to Jon..."Here I am. I'm gorgeous. Look what you are missing. You threw it all away. Eat your heart out."Vanity, vanity...thy name is woman, and in this case, a woman scorned...Thoughts?
I'm not sure if she is just bored and don't have to do the mommy chores like cleaning the McMansion,doing laundry, cooking, giving the kids baths, homework, playing with her kids, reading to them, or anything else other than pamper herself and spend hours putting out her next Hooker outfit for her next photo op with Chris. I do know she is not the same person she was in the earlier episodes. How fame and fortune can change a person.
Sadie said...How fame and fortune can change a person. ______________________________________________That probably has a lot to do with how much the person in question thinks they "deserve" the fame and fortune.
I just left some negative comments on ROL and all the 12 year olds are not happy. Some of the things they say are so out there. One commented that Jon is playing games with Kate, several comment on how ugly Ellen is(one even calls her a vampire, and of course they say how happy they will be when Kate has FULL custody. If they are mothers or even adults. that's pretty scarey.
TLC is uping the hype to try to bring in viewers in order improve ratings for their Aug. 30th episode. I'm not biting - no way - no how. I will not watch. If someone were to stand in a store, choose a family and follow them around watching them shop I'm sure someone would call security or the police and rightly so, and the parents would be very alarmed and upset, yet Jon and Kate put their children out there to be watched by whomever chooses. Creepy if you think about it that way.
Well I'm getting ready to sign off but before I do I went back to ROL where they posted that bizarre story about the kids covering their faces with towels and not one commentator was concerned. I don't read much into their comments but all they are doing is making terrible remarks about a young woman who has done nothing wrong but date the 8's father. No concern about the lil ones hiding under a towel to get to their dads apartment. Very strange and juvenile remarks. Oh well, hope he gives them a bath, offers a bedtime snack to all 8 and tucks them in.
Yup, this is all a ploy. Let's get real, Kate/TLC and all those vested interests are tying to shock us into watching by this drama. Kate can be as flamboyant as Perez Hilton and I'm not going to watch. I don't care how many pairs of shiny pants she puts on. Someday, maybe those kids will be able to leave the towels at home.
Obviously I don't know but Ellen seems like she is probably a nice person. She seems to enjoy the kids and have fun with them and they seem happy around her. I think anyone would show them more affection than there own mother. I just can't believe this abuse and cruelty of these poor innocent kids is allowed to continue. On one of the promos for the NY circus act I think it's Hannah who says "it's to hot" I wish someone with some compassion would pull the plug on this disaster.
Does Chris work for INF Daily? If so, why aren't the pictures of the pick up of the kids on their website?
I think the kids are being coached to hide under towels from 1- count 'em 1- paparazzi. INF spilled the beans about the paparazzi situation and we know that Kate is crying wolf. We've seen the videos of Chris talking to Jon or Kate and he is harmless and I doubt that he would encroach upon the kids' personal space to the point that they need to hide under towels. I think it is Kate who is coaching them. Good grief.
The Radaronline article stated that Kate "looked back longinly" as Jon and the kids drove away. Yeah, right. She probably wanted to make sure they were out of sight so they couldn't see her hopping and skipping back to the house (and Stevie) with joy.
I didn't see any pic of kids under towels, only one pic of Ellen carrying a beach towel. ROL just made that part up.
Her outfits lately have reached the same level of embarrassment as her dancing did back in the spring. That's pretty bad.There was a hot pink tight BACKLESS top with a white miniskirt and hot pink heels to go shoe shopping with her kids--at first, I thought that was something more suited to going out on a hot date, then I thought no, honestly, most women wouldn't look so....available on a first date. They'd tone down at least one thing--either the backless top or the miniskirt or the four inch heels. But something would be more conservative so the whole thing didn't scream "YES I DO IT ON THE FIRST DATE."Then this? What a blatant ploy for attention. SATIN SHORTS with a zebra stripe shirt and gladiator three inch heels? Honestly, if I saw that in the club, I'd think "trying too hard." Again, toning down just one of those things would be better for the CLUB. But for clothes shopping with your kids?Absolutely ridiculous. Over the top insane. Who in the world is telling her this is appropriate for running mom errands????At this rate, we should expect her soon to go out in a midriff-baring top, lucite heels, a sequined micro mini and a feather boa. That'll be to get some gas in the SUV or to get some groceries. By the way, how are the ratings for the show lately?ROFL.And there's no Twist of Kate. Go look at the TLC home page, look for ANY mention of the show ANYWHERE on that site and then come back and try to tell me there's an actual show. Type it in the site search box, too. Look everywhere. They PUBLICIZE upcoming shows! If it were being aired any time in the next few months, you'd at least see mention of it. It's nearly September. There's no show.I know it's hard to believe sometimes, but her time is running out.
I remember watching an interview with MJ when he talked about how brutal his childhood was. He didn't want his children to be recognized and hounded by paps and have to go through what he had to. He had the decency to keep them hidden from public view for a long time before he finally allowed their photos to be taken. Kate, on the other hand has made millions doing just the opposite. She'd be Mrs. Smalltown Nobody Gives a Shit About Narcissitic Nurse Cratchet without them. I haven't seen the photos yet, but if Jon thinks hiding their faces now is going to do any good...NEWSFLASH...It's too late you stupid bastards. I have a horrible potty mouth today. These assholes make me angry.
Kate may have big boobs but that doesn't mean she is attracted to men, LOL! In fact she may feel the same way about men as she does boys (icky).
When she gets REALLY desparate she'll be out wearing low slung jeans, she'll bend over and have a big tramp stamp for Chris to take pictures of.
And BTW Kate. You look like a lazy old cow going up to the barn at milking time in the latest pics.
Is Kelly the one who organized that TLC protest?I really hope so, because I sort of lost interest in this family for a while, but always wondered about what happened at that protest. Any links/news stories?
"There was a hot pink tight BACKLESS top with a white miniskirt and hot pink heels to go shoe shopping with her kids"Just for the sake of accuracy, the hot pink top she wore when she took the kids shoe shopping is NOT backless. Her boobs are locked and loaded into a heavy duty bra which couldn't be done if the top was backless.
Nope. Look at the shot where you can see her from the side. There is a cut out back on that top.You go look again.
My gosh, she seems more concerned with making sure she has her (most likely unrecycled) plastic bottle and pink phone in hand just for a trip down the driveway, than she seems to be about what this ridiculous pissing contest is doing to her children. Continuing those off-property handoffs is just reckless, and definitely damaging, in my opinion.Look again.......the hot pink top was not totally backless, but it did have quite a big cutout in the back - but it could have been above the braline, because I agree, those girls definitely looked locked and loaded.
FWIW when I read that the kids had towels over their heads when they got out of the van at Jon's apartment complex ala Michael Jackson style, my first thought was that TLC has decided that only Kate can be shot with the kids now.Not Jon. No way, no how. I think that TLC does not want any more staged photo ops with the sperm donor but IMHO I would think that photos of innocent children being used as props in a TV show who feel that they must hide under towels when they are allowed to see their daddy would be worth some money to a pap.Anywho ... it will be interesting to see/hear if the kids have to wear towels the rest of their time with their father this weekend, as well as every time they are with their father from now on.This whole situation goes from bad to worse ~ folks please remember that to save the 8, it is really important that you do not watch or record Kate + 8.
All that time, effort, and money spent on her hair, and she still looks like she's wearing a toupee over her head. From behind, she looks like a dude from an 80s hair band.
TLC doesn't like when we comment on happy relaxed kids with Jon. They'd rather cover their faces, instill more strangeness and fear into the children, then allow the public to see the happy children embracing their father and their few hours of freedom.
We know not to record or watch the show, we don't need reminding.
Lauren -I am in total agreement with your post about the kids being coached. I also believe that Kate "set-up" this very situation going back to last summer & the trip to NC. She spotted a P-Person as she called them, while they were getting ready to board the ship. Her over the top very negative reaction has been modeled for the kids for more than a year now. There's also video from last summer in the Target & Giant parking lots when she totally over reacted to the ONE pap's presence. More spin. The result is that she and she alone is accountable for causing these children significant emotional distress. I call BS Kate on your favorite come back that even if you quit the show that the pap would still be a daily battle for you. BS. How she can on purpose arrange for her children to suffer real distress is frightening to me.
Where are these so called pics of the towels over the kids heads? I don't see them. Only one pic of Ellen holding a towel. EMSchick, I see you comment over on ROL. That poster "Knowitall" can't say anything at all excep pick on Ellen & Jon. How that is defending Kate I will never understand.
What could be in that ever-present water bottle? Is there a reason Kate didn't give Mady any when she was thirsty?Or could Kate's medication be giving her a dry mouth?Inquiring minds...
Looking like she should be yanking out a skank's weave track with one hand while balancing a Bud Light in the other on the Rock of Love Bus, Kate Gosselin took her baby brigade out to buy back-to-school clothes at Boscov's this morning. Afterwards, they all went to the local Frederick's of Hollywood outlet so mommy could buy some back-to-the-ho-stroll outfits for herself.For real, if Kate insists on dressing like she just got back from an open casting call for The Real Roadside Hookers of Panama Beach, she should really commit. Replace those DSW shoes with a pair of lucite wedges and those satin shorts from Deb Shops with some denim no-no huggers! If you're going to try to summon the elegance, do it with feeling!■http://www.dlisted.com/node/38526
On the tlc promo for the NYC trip during the heat wave little Hannah says something to the effect that 'I don't really care, I'm too hot'.You see one of the twins climbing steps in what looks to be Central Park about ready to drop. Disgusting!!!!!
How sad, and very UNNECCESSARY. Jon & Kate, how very sad you have taken 8 little blessings and spit in God's face by DESTROYING them. This isn't fun by any means- it's down-right scary,and unnatural. Don't you see that you're sucking the life out of your children?!You are not building good memories for them. When the kids look back at their lives, it will be nothing but a sea of regrets.Get your acts together NOW for your kids sake before it's too late.
What does Kate have to offer TLC other than wacky hair styles and strange slutty outfits? She can't sing, dance, talk coherently or tell a good story. She is not smart, funny or personable. So dressing up for attention is all she can offer them. That and ignoring her kids, which comes naturally to her.Also note, it is paid tabloids that try to put Kate in La La land. They make the comparisons to Angelina Jolie and MJ,they make it up, and we don't fall for it.Lets remain united in not watching, not buying, not recording.
I have a suggestion. I would like to see everyone on her get a Twitter acct and start twittering Jon our concerns. No bashing or insulting...but facts and observations of the kids, encouragement to stop all of this etc. He will probably block you but it is easy to set up another account and repeat with the comments. One after another-not harrassing, just showing our concern. It's worth a try.
Kate, I'm Sorry, But The Tour Ends Here For You Looking like she should be yanking out a skank's weave track with one hand while balancing a Bud Light in the other on the Rock of Love Bus, Kate Gosselin took her baby brigade out to buy back-to-school clothes at Boscov's this morning.

IDModo, I had a boss that had an ever-present water bottle. Then we realized it wasn't WATER in it!!!
What stands out to me is that as Kate is evolving (Hollywood style) she is getting closer and closer to looking like so many others. She doesn't have her own look or style.I click on various web sites and see so many faces who have been operated on, the same color and style of hair, etc...In so many of the photos, you could put her next to a handful of other photos, and they all seem cookie-cutter.Just for the record, it's OK to have a different color hair, such as red, brown or black.I remember the really good actors who made their living in the industry, such as Sally Field and Cicily (sp?) Tyson, Sissy Spacek, etc...and they are not cookie-cutter at all.
I watched Scary Movie 3 last night. It had Pamela Anderson in it, and I had to laugh because it is soooo obvious that Kate is infatuated with Pam and is trying to emulate her wardrobe style. Kate see's Pam when she looks in the mirror. But the rest of the world see's someone who should've been cast in the movie "Too Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar"....about the transvestites.
Someone commented how fame and fortune changed Kate. Personally, I've always felt that money just brings out a person's true colours. If you are a caring and compassionate person before money, you will be afterwards. Once Kate had enough money in her bank account, she didn't need to pretend anymore (not that she was doing a very good job at that) and went on to destroy all of the relationships in her life (husband, Jodi, Kevin, friends etc.). She didn't need them anymore and so it was good riddance. It's not like she really cared for any of them before, it was just that she needed them to help make her life easier. Now, she can pay people to make her life easier, so it was goodbye friends and family. Money and fame did not turn her into who she is today, it just exacerbated it. Once a narcissist, always a narcissist. Sadly, it will be the children who suffer the most because of her actions.
Tom Hanks is a great example of that. He's really involved in his local community not to mention other more visible charities. He uses his wealth for good.He was the MC for opening day of Little League baseball in Pacific Palisades a few years ago. No press. No cameras. No newspaper articles. He just did it because he wanted to.
Hey Kelly, You doing anything Friday night?http://www.clubzone.com/events/Washington_DC/206833/Jon-GosselinJon Gosselin@UltrabarFriday | August 27 | 2010Doors open @ 9pmUltrabar Presents Jon Gosselin PopPoP Presents: Jon Gosselin TV Personality at Ultrabar Friday, August27th.Jonathan Keith "Jon" Gosselin is an American television personality, known for his appearances with then-wife Kate Gosselin and their eight children on the American reality TV show Jon & Kate Plus 8.
Hum! Jon at fault the way Kate dresses? It Kate fault b/c Jon is running after every young woman? Jon/Kate needs to grow up ,and be the responsible parents.The both of them could stop all the drama,and go back to the simple life..
Correct me if I am wrong, but Kate has claimed the filming is all about preserving memories, to provide for her family, and it is all about her kids. With that said, how many cosmetic/enhancements/improvements has she had, and how does this benefit the kids?Veneers on teeth, tooth bleaching, hair extensions, ongoing hair maintenance, and constant touch ups with a top dollar salon, breast augmentation at LEAST once(Steve may have advised her on the second one,since she was not happy with the first),tummy tuck, botox on parenthesis between her eyebrows, possible eyelift on her eyes (her eyebrows appeared to be pulled up in many pictures, and eyes are wider), cankles gone by way of lipo, ongoing skin treatments to keep her skin at its best, constant tanning, pedicures, manicures, and possible nose job (look at earlier pictures, nose no longer has the bulb on the end). What next, and how does this benefit the kids?Won't go into the wardrobe changes, as she clearly spends a great amount of money on clothes, shoes, handbags, accessories, etc... for herself, never wearing the same outfit twice all for her children. Give me a break. I feel terrible for these kids. Does anyone remember when all of these changes started?? I think Kate will never be happy with herself, Let alone her family as nothing is EVER good enough. Her greed and need for fame has overtaken any sense of what is best for her kids.
Here's a few pics of the kids under the beach towels. http://www.imnotobsessed.com/photogallery?nid=74123&fid=120790#photogallery-title
Why are these kids still being picked up/dropped at the gate to her Mine All Mine house?? This is their home. Kate sucks for requiring any drop offs/pick ups at the gate. Whatever her point might be, these kids need some privacy. What a witch.
Can you imagine the shrieking and language directed at Cara and Mady when Kate realized they were wearing the same clothes day in and day out? She wouldn't have noticed it on her own, but I bet she read about it. It makes her look bad, and only Kate is allowed to make herself look bad. God help those little girls. I hope we don't see them paraded in matchy-matchy outfits as punishment. God knows whatever else punishment she gave them. I really fear for those kids' physical safety. That lack of grooming we see on those girls is a clear sign of depression, and maybe a cry for help.
Towels over their heads photos are up.I love how the sheeple are spinning this one. This was all Jon's idea because if he can't make money off the kids he doesn't want anyone to see them....WTF? How does that make sense at all? Here's a thought, maybe it WAS Jon's idea because the kids are tired of cameras in their faces.
Do you think the kids are making the connection yet that the show is the reason they are famous and led to this moment where they have to hide under towels?They still more or less participate in the show, they don't hide from their own cameras. Under penalty of severeness no doubt.
That's the only towel photo I've seen, but in that one it looks like Jon is smiling, only 3 kids are hidden and maybe they're just being goofy and silly. Pretending they're ghosts or something.I just don't get the "hide from the camera" vibe from that photo, unlike Collin hiding his face.As far as what the sheeple read into it, they are twisted people with twisted opinions. Jon could be on a mountain top in Pakistan delivering aid to the flood victims (never happen) while Kate pitches a bag of puppies off a bridge (could possibly happen) and they'd spin it in Kate's favor. Just like Jon's Ed Hardy wear was a sad attempt to be young and cool to them (they were right) but Kate's new look is amazing (they are very, very wrong).
KateJonandTLsuck,I won't be going to the ultrabar on Friday to see Jon Gosselin. I'd rather have an angioplasty.
We've seen enough photos of the kids hiding from the paparazzi for it to be downright silly at this point to suggest they are doing anything else.Jon looks like he's gritting his teeth to me, not smiling. Even if he is smiling, wouldn't it be possible that if he knows the poor kids want to hide their faces and are distraught over this, he would at least try to make it fun for them? Make a game out of it? Hey kids let's be ghosts, we'll play pretend AND as a bonus the paps won't see you!He's being a good Daddy, but he'd be a lot better Daddy if he would stop this nonesense in the first place.
Seems to me when looking at the pictures is that it was Kates idea and Jon played along with it. It did say that Kate packed the kids in the van in the garage, when Jon picked them up he headed to his apartment, they got out of the van with towels over their heads right. Kate packed the towels and told Jon to hide the kids under the towels to stop Chris from taking their picture cause he told on her about the one pap thing.
Did you see this photo?http://www.imnotobsessed.com/photogallery?nid=74123&fid=120792#photogallery-titleIs this Alexis or Leah? I haven't watched in so long I can't tell them apart. She looks happy to me.And this photo of Cara is the closest we've seen to a smile from her all week.http://www.imnotobsessed.com/photogallery?nid=74123&fid=120790#photogallery-titleJon's a douche, but these photos are once again proof to me that the kids are at least happy with him. Even dealing with the paparazzo (guess we can't call them paparazzi anymore since there's only 1) is more fun for the kids with Jon.I also see there's a photo of Kate all decked out today in her heels and strapless dress to go to the tanning salon. Blech!
In one picture Jon is covering the kids and one of the girls looks like she is giggling
With Jon/Kate it keep getting crazier..I thought they were in parenting classes..What happen to that??? I believe Jon/Kate is working together creating all the drama to stay in the media attention..It is sad for the children,they are paying the price for their dad,and mom stupidity..
Forgive me if this is a duplicate post. Twice this has happened when I try to post, my computer hiccups and I end up back on the home page and my post disappears into cyberspace.I just found this link on aol about plastic surgery for cankles!! Not that I didn't believe anyone who posted here about it, but I thought they were joking, but it's a real thing!! LOLhttp://www.lemondrop.com/2010/08/20/cankles-lipo-gets-rid-of-fat-ankles/?icid=main|main|dl7|link4|http%3A%2F%2Fwww.lemondrop.com%2F2010%2F08%2F20%2Fcankles-lipo-gets-rid-of-fat-ankles%2F
"I thought they were in parenting classes..What happen to that???"-----------They were required, by the court, to take ONE parenting class, which was nothing more than a video. I have no idea if they ever went.
The whole thing with the towel is crazy but like she said "Its a crazy life, but its our life".
I wonder if the children ever ask Kate why the paps with the cameras are the bad guys; while the "crew" with the cameras are the good guys. Does she answer with "You kids work for the good guys"?
What new photos say to me:Kids DON'T, I repeat DON'T want to be filmed. And where as Kate berates them into submitting, Jon makes it FUN and into a game to avoid being photographed.WHO is the better parent. Who gives them love acceptance, and BETTER memories.As for when Kate began changing her appearance, it was when she started traveling ALONE with Steve.Steve, you are a fu**. As soon as you saw Kate was fixating on you, you should have quit.
I'm sorry, but I don't see anything at all upsetting about the towel picture. I see a daddy playing around with his kids, throwing towels over them as they walk for the sheer fun of it. He's smiling at them, not looking like he's concerned about their privacy. It could even be a game of "oh look, there's Chris! Hide everybody! Don't let him catch youwith your noses on the top of your heads! Here, get under the towels! Ha Ha!" I guess we all see things differently, and that's fine with me. I just don't see the problem with this particular picture.
Hey EMSchick, do you need to purge your computer or do you feel "sick" after fighting the good fight over at ROL? There are a couple of commentors that MIGHT be 12 or so just based on the immature and idiotic ranting about Ellen or Jon.
Anon-ITA about fame and fortune "changing" someone.They don't. They only magnify what was there to begin with. K8 was a bad seed long before the show, she's just much worse now that she's, ahem, famous.
So yesterday my daughters saw Miley Cyrus at a very fashionable mall in our area. Yes, girls were giddy with excitement, and some approached her for pictures. She was dressed young, because she IS young, but all her parts were covered. She couldn't have been more gracious and lovely. Of course this young girl needs bodyguards, but they were very discreet, and not trying to stick their faces in the picture like Kate's fame-whore, Steve Neild. If the commotion got to be too much, I'm sure they would have stepped in, but otherwise, discretion was the rule of the day. Sad that fame-whore Kate and fame-whore Steve could have learned something from a teenager. Bodyguard, my a$$
Admin, the point you brought up about if the kids realize that the show is what brings them this unwanted attention. I'd be willing to bet that fame-whore mom tells them they were famous before they were born, before TLC, and shows them newspaper articles to prove it. So she probably says, "Look guys, you've been famous since birth, you'll never be left alone, and if you want a roof over your head and all these nice things, we might as well use it to our advantage. The paps will never go away, anyway." Brainwashing your kids for profit does not seem above that witch.
I think the towels *may* be a continuation of the childrens' "terrors" over being exposed to "P People". I believe Kate and/or TLC has put the children on alert not to allow ANYone other than TLC-approved photogs and filmers access to their brand. This *might* explain the childrens' reaction (excessive sobbing) at the infamous drop-off a couple of weeks ago. I believe the children saw the pap and felt "hunted down", and reacted because Kate told them, under penalty of severeness, that under no circumstances were THEY to 'allow' their faces to be photographed unless it was a TLC-approved minion. I cannot shake the feeling that the adults in these childrens' lives have now gone completely overboard in their mixed messages -- "THESE" "P People" are okay, but THOSE P PEOPLE are not okay. No wonder these kids look morose, overwhelmed, confused, and sad... I doubt they know what they're allowed to feel.
Here's something I've noticed lately. A few years ago, it seemed like the older girls were done with filming. They didn't seem to smile much on camera (or off). Now the younger 6 seem to be taking the same road. In all of the pictures for the last year or so, the little ones have been solemn looking with Kate. I bet they are sick to death of cameras because they are no longer babies or toddlers ....they are children who have opinions and can express them. Too bad their mother and father aren't listening to them.

One of them was if Kate was ever caught spanking one of the kids. Lo and behold a couple months later, the photos came out of Kate not only spanking Leah, but lifting up her little dress so it would hurt even more.All over a whistle, we found out later. How did the sheeple react? Kate was their hero! They just thought this was fabulous, firm parenting and they were convinced that whistle-blowing scofflaw Leah deserved it. Imagine the same exact scenario and Jon was the spanker? The sheeple would have overloaded the switchboard at PA Children and Youth services. That's just how they are. My favorite sheeple moment was the day that BM forgot to put her comments on moderation then went away for most of the day. Once word got out that mod was off, it was a free for all! The usual 8-12 sheeple that post there were in hysterics as the Kate bashing rained down upon them. Good times, good times :)
I think Jon and the kids are making a joke. Jon looks to me like he is smiling. Maybe the kids told him about Kate with the bag over her face, and they all had a good laugh about it, and decided to play a trick on Chris, whom they all know.I don't think Kate or TLC had anything to do with it, and I think ROL is just hyping it for all it's worth.
This is what I mean when I say the sheeple and the realists (or as they call it Kate haters) are coming from such fundamentally different moral values and ethics that we will never find common ground.The sheeple believe it's okay to strike a child. We don't.Have never struck a child. Never will. I was given permission to strike the children I nannied for four years. I declined. And by the way, the kids minded me anyway, imagine that.This is a great article about this subject: http://www.naturalchild.org/jan_hunt/tenreasons.html
The fact that the kids are able to laugh about this doesn't make it any less sick in my mind that they have to HIDE from the paps. If they were crying then is this sick? It's sick either way.Jon reminds me of the father in Life is Beautiful who made the concentration camp a big silly game for his son so his son was never scared and always laughing. Before the sheeple freak out and say I'm suggesting this is like a concentration camp, of course not. The point I'm making is that any good parent will do their best to be positive and happy and make jokes of things that are uncomfortable or sad for their kids. Jon is that parent.
Michelle said...That's the only towel photo I've seen, but in that one it looks like Jon is smiling, only 3 kids are hidden and maybe they're just being goofy and silly. Pretending they're ghosts or something.*****That was the impression I got as well. I've done that with my kids too when we've gone to the pool or the beach. As for the theory of Kate ordering Jon to cover the kids faces so Chris would not be allowed to take pic, then explain why she allowed him to film the kids back to school shopping. They could have worn towels/scarves over their heads ala Michael Jackson. Sorry, I think this is another case of a cigar being just a cigar. If it's not, then all I can do is shake my head and think to myself "What twits!"
"Hide from the paps"? I thought there was only one pap, Chris, and he was a pretty "nice guy." I thought he worked for INF Daily, but the towel pictures aren't on INF Daily. What's up with that? Did a different pap take the towel pictures?The kids were smiling, even Cara had a slight smile on her face. It's rare to see any of the 8 smiling these days. At this point, I'm just glad to see some smiles on their faces. Jon is the only one who's able to make that happen for them.
wayward:I don't know if we are talking about the same time but I remember a time when BM was off retracing K8's steps and vacationing in Legoland. Moderation was off and some "jellus haterz" had a field day. The sheeple were almost in tears like little kids, threatening to "tell on them" to BM. I haven't been to BM's site in a very long time, she and her minions are so not worth the effort and time. To any of you who do, take caution. BM's site is infested with viruses.
Admin, I just found out why the kids were put to work the entire summer!Why there was intensive filming... Here's a fragment of Kate's fake blog: "Today I write about a very momentous occasion: One -- THE one -- that I have known would come one day, and boy has it sneaked right up on me! What is the occasion you ask? ALL EIGHT OF MY CHILDREN will, for the first time ever, ATTEND FULL-TIME SCHOOL this year!!!!!( her caps not mine)" So there it is people, the reason these poor children had no more than probably 2 weeks(and not 14 days in a row) home, in PA, playing with water guns or diving in the pool, whithout cameras rolling! I am right aren't I Admin?
Troy Chula Vista Thanks for noticing my attempt to get a rational explanation from any one as to why they thought Kate was a good mother. Of course they couldn't give any reason that made sense or just ignored the question altogether. They accused me of being old, fat, jealous and a stalker. There are 2 die hards that just post over and over trashing Jon, saying Ellen is fat and ugly, that Jon is going to steal all her money blah,blah,blah. Just utter nonsense. I said in my last post(which will be my last) that they are clearly very young and hopefully not parents. It was like arguing with a 10 year old about why they can't go to the mall without a parent..pointless. Having 4 kids of my own, I would guess by their posts that the average Kate fan is about 12 on ROL.
Originally, Kate said if anyone wanted to stop filming, it would. After she and Jon split up, need to put food on the table and pay bills, then the kids were told by Kate the P people were bad. These kids having been filming all summer, one trip after another non-stop due to their greedy mother, so I am sure they are confused (Chris is good, all other photographerss are bad), as bi-standers may try to take amateur photos. I think the kids covering their face speaks volumes of their desire to be photographed on ANY occassion, with a crazy looking hooker mom.Does Kate EVER consider how embarrassing she dresses might effect her kids? Her ROLE IS STILL supermom. Seriously, don't the kids come first (as she always claimed), so why the need for all the hooker outfits, which surely embarasses Mady and Cara, as no other normal mom dresses this way each day. She does see moms at the bus stop.When do the kids get a say if they want to film? I am guessing Mady and Cara want it to end now, as well as at least 4 of the tups based on recent photos with them covering their faces. Do any of these these kids have any say at all as Kate originally claimed? What happened to being a mom first, and what is best for her kids? Seriously, when you embarrass your kids in public with how you dress, this is only a small dose of what they go through day to day. Again, what happened to "when the kids want to stop filming, that will be the end of it." Total BS, it is ALL about Kate. I feel for Mady and Cara. It is no wonder they are acting out on film. Wonder how much of the film is cut where they tell how they really feel about constant filming?
It is so ridiculous that fame-whore Kate can't drive the kids to the end of her driveway without a water bottle in one hand and her pink phone in the other. What a tool.
IDModo said... I think Jon and the kids are making a joke. Jon looks to me like he is smiling. Maybe the kids told him about Kate with the bag over her face, and they all had a good laugh about it, and decided to play a trick on Chris, whom they all know.I don't think Kate or TLC had anything to do with it, and I think ROL is just hyping it for all it's worth.___________________________________________I said exactly the same thing but my post wasn't published. At any rate, I agree w/ you.
I'm cautiously optimistic that support of Kate seems to be greatly diminished these days.Yahoo/OMG posted its normal Kate article yesterday, and as of now it has only 107 comments. Many of those are negative. A loss of support for this woman is great to see. But even better is the lack of interest.
KatePlus8 will air EVERY MONDAY starting 8/30
Admin said - Do you think the kids are making the connection yet that the show is the reason they are famous and led to this moment where they have to hide under towels?They still more or less participate in the show; they don't hide from their own cameras. Under penalty of severeness no doubt.Excellent excellent question. I do not think so. Cognitively I think that the twins are getting close to a time that they could brain development wise. However emotional and unconscious factors could delay that realization until they are emotionally equipped to deal with the pain and all the ramifications of that connection, IMO.I'm glad that you broke it down into such fundamentally polar opposite camps with the realists vs. the sheeple. I had never gotten to that point in my thinking and it sure clears up a lot of the gray area I have had as to why they would support Kate's greed over the children's best interest. When you used the example of hitting a child for punishment or ANY reason it all clicked into focus for me. I would never under any circumstance strike anyone, least of all a child or animal. I used to think that there was room for the 2 camps to come to some understanding but that was naive on my part. I would never negotiate or compromise with someone about such fundamental value issues like hitting. Period. And sheeple probably feel as strongly that they believe in it. End of story. But why do they believe that lying all the time is healthy for the kids???
LMAO,Kate NEVER said "It's a crazy life but is our life" She said "It's a crazy life but its are life." Her accent is a cross between Pennsyltucky and Baltimoron
I don't believe there anything to the towel covering..Jon smiling ,and the children, they are just playing and having fun..At least when they are w/Jon they are smiling,the children are clean and they look relaxed...When they are with Kate they looks so sad,and lately they are wearing the same clothes over and over ,and they look dirty..
A tweet from Jon: Had an exhausting but fun weekend with my kids. Swam, did some crafts, and built some forts! about 1 hour ago via Twitter for Android I think Jon and the kid were playing. Or at least the towel incident wasn't as ominous as some may think.
I think it'd be interesting if we shared our first impressions of Kate and the first time we felt something was off with her.The first episode I ever saw was the one in which Jon and his brother or her brother (?) had to install all these shelf thingies hanging from the garage ceiling. Kate was just bossy and bitchy, but I had never seen her before, so I gave her the benefit of the doubt. However, a big red flag was when she didn't even thank them. She only complained. It was done and done right and she didn't even say thank you! I thought that was crass.Then the kids were playing in the garage and they were fighting over something and she had two on her lap and one other was crying, so she comforted that child with her foot and griped that she had so many kids, she had to resort to this. It occurred to me then that these kids couldn't have been a total surprise, so why is she bitching?But then I noticed all she did was bitch, non-stop.The biggest WTF moment for me was when she had to take two of the younger girls to the doctor for ear infections. They were walking out, the girls in front of her and suddenly she gasped really loudly. I thought one of the girls had done a face plant on the concrete! But no, she was freaking out and yelling that THEY HAD THE WRONG SHOES ON!What the hell? If I had eight kids, I'd be thrilled they HAD shoes on! There were going to the doctor shoes and SHE DIDN'T HAVE THEM ON. The poor thing (in pain) had to go back in and get the RIGHT SHOES ON and of course Jon got ripped up verbally in the process.After that, I only watched it to see if Jon was ever finally and at last going to go OFF on the hag. And he never did.
Maybe the towel covering was a chicken hijacking. Jon needs fresh eggs too. Perhaps there were chicks and hens under those towels and not the kids. I'm still waiting for Shoka and Nala to come home, just like Kate promised. Kate never goes back on her word. Her word is gospel. Her word is as follows:1. It's a good bra2. I have a purse full of bills3. It's all for the kids4. The dogs are coming back5. I have huge legal bills6. I don't do botox5. I don't have a nanny4. Steve and Gina are friends-200. I am a contract honorer2 to the fifth power. We wanted to give back to the Ronald McDonald House.Pie are square: I play sad mommy music knowing the kids are going back to school.Cornbread are round: The kids are playing in front of the cameras.
Forgot to add this other tweet:really hoping @jongosselin1 will finally stop letting TLC buy his kids childhoods. Those kids are exhausted! They didnt even get a summerRT @ellen_ross1 @liisabella Agreed. And we are doing the best we can currently :)
Looks like Dr. Glass needs her own Steve Neild now:http://drlillianglass.com/body-language-blog/2010/08/22/dr-lillian-glass-tell-never-lies-about-what-she-sees-including-kate-gosselin-and-bodyguard%E2%80%99s-body-language/(Highlights)"Apparently, the Kate Gosselin lovers and fans on their “Kate Plus Eight Gosselin Family Fansite” were all up in arms and got their panties in a bunch stating that I made up lies to promote myself and to insult Kate. This is not true.""6. And finally, I have discovered is that there are lot of Kate fans or shall I say “fanatics” who cannot bear to hear anything they may perceive as negative when it may in fact not be negative at all. To them, I say, take off your blinders and look at what” is”, not at what is the fantasy you created there to be."
Bodyguard My A$$ First off I love your screen name!! But I was thinking the same thing. She needs her friggin phone and a water bottle to drive from her house to the end of the driveway? Maybe Steve has gonna come over for an afternoon session and she didn't want to miss his call. Kate can play Domenetrix with that outfit
If you want to read some real craziness go to the blog by Ziggy Flo. Very scary what she is reading in to the towels over the head and she wants to know how Jon is living off the money that KATE is earning. Another certified nut that the ROL gang feels tells the gospel truth.
Linda, there are many moments that struck me oddly about Kate:1. "Gumgate", when she yelled at little Colin for getting gum on his blankie. WTF!!!!!!!!!2. When Joel was sick and she made him lay down in the laundry room. WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!3. When she was left poor Colin sitting on the potty, in the dark. WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!4. When she would not allow the kids to play with Magic Markers at the Crayola Factory. WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!5. The episode in Disney, where she had a mental breakdown when Alexis dripped ice cream down the front of her dress. WTF!!!!!!!! 6. When Kate & Jon left 8 sick kids with Jodi & her Kevin so that Jon could get free hair plugs. WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!7. When Kate yelled at Jon at the toy store. WTF! 8. When she told Jon that he was breathing too loudly. WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!9. When she sat her rump on the white, plastic chair and instead of allowing her husband and kids to play, she was busy telling Jon what to do from her throne. Ugh! 10. When they went to Utah, and she claimed to be too sick to enjoy the day with her family out on the slopes- BUT friggin' jumped out of the bed to go to the spa with Beth. WTF!!!There are so many more instances to list, probably something in each episode- and I'm actually getting upset remembering all those Kate moments. This was a big reason why I stopped watching shortly after they moved into their mansion. Her odd behavior & odd comments just made me feel uneasy. I felt that by tuning in, I was condoning her bad behavior. My conclusion at the time was if enough people stop watching, the show will be cancelled, and the children will be able to live normal lives. Unfortunately, it's more complicated than that. Narcisstic Kate will continue to be crazy even if the cameras disappear. The sad fact is that 8 little lives are affected either way.She really is a very, very troubled & complicated person. I feel for her kids, and I truly hope they walk away with their sanity intact.
Okay Gang, it's 9pm Eastern Time here, Sunday night and I'm going to bed. Remember, the sponsors are working tomorrow so make it a point to call at least one of them and voice your concerns and complaints.Don't blog, CALL and complain. Call one of them and google their 800 number. They are all working tomorrow. In case Jon is reading this blog, I'll define what working is for him.1. Brushing your teeth and setting the alarm for 6am in the morning.2. Actually getting up when the alarm goes off and not hitting the snooze button for 12 hours.3. Putting on a shirt with a collar and not one with a huge dragon on the front or the back.4. Driving to the interview. Ultrabar on Friday night doesn't count5. Filling out an application6. Rinse and Repeat each day until you get a job. Kids contributing to the rent, food and Stoli don't count for being productive.Good night everyone. I've got bills to pay and not a single kid here to contribute. They are all making lives for themselves.Kelly
Good for Jon. At least he is letting his kids hide under the towels instead of propping them up everywhere for the public to gawk at.
A poster on GWOP came up with a great name for Kate that I needed to share.. KateDashian How fitting is that!
Normally I don't care what she says but that telling off of the fans was BRILLIANT. Got to admit, she handled herself beautifully.
Building forts!!! So much fun and wonderful memories as a child. Indoor forts made out of tables, sofa cushions, pillows, comforters, bedspreads, sheets, curtains and summer outdoor forts made out of lawn chairs, chair pads, picnic tables, beach towels, blankets, cardboard boxes, etc. Kids can use their imagination, empty closets, garages, and basements to build forts.
AskBabyMamaGosselinNews1 GREAT NEWS! It is now confirmed that #KatePlus8 will air EVERY MONDAY starting 8/30 ! about 19 hours ago via Echofon Retweeted by AskBabyMama and 4 others Sooo, we were right all along that there would be NO Twisted Kate! TLC's very predictable in their exploitation
Read this on "Kate's" Blog. Hey Kate! I'm only 11 years old but I love your kids. I think its wonderful that you are going to take them out to a beach every year. Its a wonderful experience for Cara,Mady,Lex,(Alexis)Hannah,Aaden,Collin,Lele(Leah) and Joely. Say hi to the kiddies for me!------I think this sums up the average Kate defender pretty well.
Kelly, I love your posts and am glad "we" have a male's point of view...especially yours. Keep it up.
Sort of OT. How do I know what sponsors to call if I don't watch the show? I saw mention of P&G and crooked house but wondered about more. I have time tomorrow to do a few calls.
Regarding beach towels...I actually applaud Jon for doing this. He is having a good time with it (smilin,laughing) and I assume it is a 'joke' that they feel they are playing on the paps. I am probably reading too much into it but can't you see them complaining about it in the car - the pictures, being on tv, everyone constantly watching and/or taping them, and so he says 'we'll hide'. It's kind of a let's show the witch we don't want it any more.Honestly at this point I feel I am grasping at straws. Anything to give the kids 'control' or power I am for.
anyone notice that the kids are not matching and look almost like they are in "trash" clothes when they go to Jon's???? They aren't in the cutsie clothes anymore....
Factor out the roadie outfits, the plastic surgery and the peroxide hair and look only at the expression on that woman's face. My god, she looks psychotic.
Congratulations Gosselin 8, you are now employed full-time! Quite a feat in this time of high unemployment (especially for youth) in our country! Your Mom and Dad "worked" very hard to get you these jobs so that you could help support them. Thank your lucky stars that you were born into this family because other kids are not so lucky to have their faces splashed all over the TV, rag magazines and websites. You no longer have to worry about whether people will know who you are or even who your parents are because you are not a meaningless face in the crowd. Whatever you do or say will be put out there. Wow! You must be so happy to have such publicity whores for parents and bosses (TLC).

If I may, I’d like to offer a suggestion, with no offense intended. When you post something you’ve read, could you please include the link (unless of course it’s from a source other than the internet). I like to check the source of the original statement because I sometimes have questions. I can go to the link and research what was said instead of having to ask the person who posted here, and then waiting for that person to come back and reply to me. Thanks.
Others have commented on Kate + 8 going weekly as well. I'm not sure how they're going to get 36+ weeks of episodes out of this summer's filming so it sounds like the kids weekends at Kate's will be packed.Oooooo!!! I wonder if Jon will have them during the week now so they can be available each weekend for work?!

If Jon thinks spending a day building forts and swimming for fun is exhausting, how does he think his kids feel after spending the majority of their summer "break" in front of cameras? Are we supposed to feel sorry for him that he was exhausted? Or was that supposed to bring about praise from us for what a great dad he is?
"-Oooooo!!! I woder if Jon will have them during the week now so they can be available each weekend for work?!"It's possible, but I don't see how. They're all in school from early morning until late afternoon, five days a week. By the time they get home, do their homework, have dinner and playtime, it's time for bed. I can't see all of the kids sleeping in a one-bedroom apartment all week, and trying to do their school work there.
