Towels were Ellen's idea to send a message to the paparazzi

The recent photos of the children hiding under towels were Ellen's idea, Ellen revealed today in a Twitter message. The reason they covered the kids was to show that they do not support the children's pictures being taken.

Well guess my instincts were right on this one too, this was no game it was a message to the paps.

They managed to make it fun for the kids and make it seem like a game, which I give them credit for.

If Jon is somewhat friendly with Chris, why didn't he just ask him to back off for a while? Is Chris that money hungry that he can't forgo a couple of days of photos? Seems like he makes a fairly lucrative wage off of someone else's kids and he should have had enough shots to last several days, since Kate paraded them all over hell's half acre last week.
Give the kids a break, Chris. Their idiotic mother won't.

My Dog Dimmie said...

Well I'm glad they sent a message like that, maybe Chris should take the hint and leave them alone. He can take pictures of the Diva cause God only knows she'll get the dry heaves without her photo op.

Oh Lord, I saw the pics of her and her boyfriend leaving the Donut Shop. Her breast are hanging out in full glory for all to view, including her boyfriend. Who pays for this limo to take Ms Bimbo to NY? Why is she heading to NY when she has 8, count em 8 kids to get off to school? Does this woman ever think of her children? Will she ever dress like a mother of 8 or will she keep on dressing like a tramp? Who knows! I give up with her face full of Hubba Bubba.

Why does Jon continue to let TLC rule his kids? Those are his children and yet TLC treats them as if they belong to the Network. He should have never backed down from them. He does have alot of support from alot of people. There were quite of people that were delighted that he took them kids from the claws of TLC. I for one will not watch that show or the Network again. I haven't seen their show since he left for that matter.

Ellie said...

Difference here btw Jon and Kate - Kate covers her face and leaves her kids to be exposed as she thinks the paps are "after her" and her alone. Jon would rather cover his children's faces and leave himself exposed. That is what a REAL parent should do!!!

Anonymous said...

Why doesn't Jon tell the pap to leave the kids alone? He should be doing this without needing a girlfriend's advice, using her for damage control, sympathy or to enhance his own image. It's not the pap's responsibility to protect the children, it's the parents responsibility. Both Jon and Kate are complicit in continuing the exploitation of their children for money and public entertainment. Kate's under the influence of TLC, Steve, hooker heels and whatever fame drug she's taking. Jon is a lazy whimp who uses his girlfriends to blog, twitter, do interviews, etc.

@ Anon, who knows!

I like Ellen. She seems to be a good fit for Jon and the kids. She seems to bring a relaxed comfort to the mix of madness (Kate). Ellen seems to have the best interest of the kids at heart!!

2exhausted2name said...

Anonymous - If it's that simple why don't we ask Kate to stop filming the kids... oh, wait, we did. Just because you ask someone to stop doing something doesn't mean they will. And who's to say Jon hasn't asked?

Personally I think there should be laws against pap photos of any minor, celebrity or not. Quite frankly Jon could go blue in the face asking the paps to stop but there's nothing he can do as there are no laws backing him up. The kids are considered newsworthy and are therefore subject to all the pitfalls of fame.

XYZed said...

When Kate is photographed with the kids the ever present body guard, Steve, is hovering nearby, apparently for protection and security. When the kids are with Jon they are protected by . . . well, by towels. Give us all a break, Kate. . . no one is really believing the body guard story.

Dani said...

I want to welcome Ellen, too. Thank you for caring about their privacy. Enough is enough.
Thank you for treating their dad with respect.
Good luck and you do have many supporters. The critics are just louder and seem to have more time on their hands.

Troy Chula Vista said...

Maybe I am reading this wrong, but why are some posters assuming that TLC has ANYTHING to do with the towel over the head? The thread says it was ELLEN's idea, not TLC. Do we have some ROL kids in here?

silimom said...

No offense meant to anyone, but how do we know for certain that this is Ellen? Couldn't it be someone posing as Ellen? I'm just curious.

mommyinca said...

I have a theory about Chris. Maybe it's not so bad that he's up in Kate's grill all the time. Maybe overexposure is what's doing her in! As for the kids, maybe Chris is working with Jon to show how unhappy the kids really are! If you were to just read the TLC crap, you'd think the kids are so happy about acting all the time, they're now putting on their own shows!!! They just love all the attention, dontcha know. If it weren't for the pap pics, we wouldn't have the evidence of Kate dressing like a hooker and the kids SCREAMING for their daddy not to go.

Kk said...

Admin: with all due respect, I don't think it's a good idea for the blog to assume that Ellen's identity is legit. It may well be her, but it is just as likely that it is not her. Haven't we all doubted that K's own mother is blogging at another site? Just sayin'

Kk said...

Jon does not have my support. He just does not get a pass from me about making a game of hiding from the pap/s --- he is their father, and he could make this go away for real if he wanted to; there is no way any pap would get anything out of following children who are not on tv.

Anonymous said...

Silent protest - simple and dignified. Very good and whether it was the girlfriend or the father who thought of it - it does not matter ... the children are finally being protected!!!

SAHM said...

I have a ? for Ellen (if she can answer it)... what are her feelings about Bodyguard Steve... does she think that Kate and Steve are an item and using the "bodyguard" claim to cover up their love affair or does Kate truly need a bodyguard and from what does she need protecting?? Are there THAT many fans/crazies that stalk her to warrant a bodyguard?? I have family that live in Reading and most of the people i have talked w/ there could care less about Kate and would prefer if she would take her circus show elsewhere. But does Ellen know if Kate has received threats that would warrant Steve to be there?? We know that Jon had a gut instinct about Steve before J&K plus 8 stopped airing but what does Ellen think??

Bubbles said...

If Jon did not want the children being photographed, there are MANY ways he could have prevented it LONG before now.

I guess we should be grateful to Ellen for coming along so Jon has someone to tell him what to do that actually has the kids' best interests in mind, since he's apparently incapable of thinking for himself.

Keeping in mind that not everyone owns a computer, and those that do have one at home and only have access at work are not necessarily even aware of the Gosselin blog wars ~

What would happen if Chris continues to take photos of the kids hiding under towels, shirts, jackets ... their own hands ... not only when they are with Jon, but when they are with Kate too?

Wouldn't that send out the message via INF/ROL/etc. - and eventually ET, THE INSIDER and ACCESS HOLLYWOOD - that the kids are protesting their own show?

We bloggers already know that INF (and probably Chris too because he was there) is anti Kate especially after THAT heartwrenching video that TLC wants us to forget about (ya right, like that could ever happen!). There is no doubt in a lot of minds that there is something seriously wrong in Kate's house that we bloggers do not know about that would get those kids so worked up!

So why not use Chris and let him take all the photos he wants? By allowing Chris to do his job, he can get the message to the viewers who are not on blogs that something is wrong in Gosselinland.

His photos can let the viewers draw their own conclusion. More likely than not they will see that 6 year old kids are protesting to the best of their ability that they don't want to WORK anymore. They just want to be normal kids.

Let the viewers figure out that it is Kate Gosselin who is forcing her own kids to do the show. The viewers are not stupid, they can see for themselves that Kate loves all these free vacations when most families live paycheck to paycheck, struggling to keep a roof over their head. Viewers know that 6 y.o. kids do not need a trip to Alaska to be happy.

As it is comments are already hitting the web from other sources that Kate's 15 minutes are up. The jist is Kate + 8 is a dying show, and I couldn't agree more!

Kate will no doubt ride it out to the end, she will be part of a joke in the opening of the Emmys this weekend. I'm sure she will plug her show at every opportunity ... but what if more photos hit the web where the kids are protesting at the same time?

All that remains to be seen is whether or not TLC will continue to beat a dead horse by forcing these Gosselin kids to continue to work, or whether TLC will simply move on to another family of younger multiples until that family implodes too.

JMO.

Administrator said...

KK, I'm the most skeptical person you've ever met believe me.

But here's how we know it's Ellen. We know that JonGosselin1 is Jon's real twitter account. He took a photo of himself holding up a notebook that says JonGosselin1. He's posted lots of personal info like when he has the kids no one could possibly know but him. It's his account. He in turn has said that Ellen's twitter account is indeed Ellen He twitters her all the time and she twitters him. She also posts lots of personal details and photos no one could know. It's her.

Lolly said...

So funny. A few of Kate's supporters speculated that Kate must have "ordered" Jon to hide the kids faces. LOL How silly is that? As if Kate can "order" Jon to do a thing. Those days are gone. SHE doesn't do it, why would she "order" anyone else to do? Common sense is so rare these days.

That’s a good question, silimom. I’m surprised it took this long for someone to ask. There have certainly been more complicated hoaxes pulled on people on the internet than creating a blog using someone else’s ID. Her Twitter account appears to be the real Ellen, but whether the person who replied here is Ellen, I don’t know.

In situations like this, I just stand by the sidelines and watch.

BeDoneNow said...

I have a question: If photogs showed up and started taking and publishing pics of you or your kids time after time, could it be stopped? The pics are being published for profit - what about signed releases? The few times my pic has been taken at a charity event and published, I had to sign off on it.

If it is one lone photog (and I believe it is) could he and his employer be held back with a restraining order keeping him a certain distance from the children? I just dont understand the legal end of 8 minor children being plastered all over the internet without written consent from the parent who is accompanying them. Kate does NOT have sole guardianship - Jon still has legal standing.

If my kid was in the school talent show and some local got obsessed with my kid, do I have any legal recourse from stopping someone from plastering my child's pic on the internet?

lol guys its me.... im not that special, no ones out to impersonate me haha! trust me!

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


I think that perhaps there is so much more going on behind the scenes than we will never know in regards to custody issues, the children, filming, TLC's strong arm in all of this, etc. Bloggers like to think they know everything (and that have a right to know everything) when, in fact, only a small part is actually revealed. We have no idea of Jon's thinking capability in all of this, or what initiative has been taken, or is being taken in regards to the welfare of these children.

Right, Ellen?

Barbara said...

Here it is! Kate's posted again on her blog that the kids returned home from visiting Jon just so super happy to see her they were busting out in song and dance. She was obviously told to refute the video that we all saw. Sorry, we saw it, there was no faking how upset those kids were. Words from Kate on a fake blog won't discount what we heard.

*********

Kate is lousy at damage control. She just needs to keep quiet, but then again, that's not going to happen. She told us during the separation that it was going to be kept private between the two of them, and in the next breath, she making public statements, trashing him, and revealing things that SHOULD have been kept private. She can't zip it. She just digs herself a deeper hole. Some people just never learn.

Troy Chula Vista said...

notice how Kate made sure she said "return home from Jon's Apartment" in her fake blog? That women is all dissing Jon when she can. What does she think, that the public is buying that slop? How does she find the time to realize these things about her kids, she is never home alone with them (unless it's a film day).

After you read a couple paragraphs from Kates fake blog, you almost feel like you should shower or take some compazine for the nausea. That blog is dripping with self centered BS.

emschick1128 said...

My impression is that Ellen is a nice person who really does care about those kids. They seem very relaxed around her and she seems to enjoy them. I think Jon and the kids are lucky to have her in their lives. Anyone though would be better than that skank they have as a mother. Maybe Kate was fantasizing that she was getting ready to walk the Red Carpet when she got out of her limo at DD. Wow!! what a photo op

Anonymous said...

All they need to do is a get a big black umbrella and they could hold it to the side where the paps are and block the shots and the kids could still see where they are going.

Chris is probably on assignment to the Gosselins from his boss INF and doesn't call the shots.

I did respect the fact that when he realized the kids could see him during the breakdown at the prison gates he immediately backed off so they could not see him. I am glad he got that shot. She needs to be exposed.

She has no business being a mother to those kids. Sugary words in a blog are cheap Khate. The proof is in the pudding.
