Come off it, Kate

Kate lies her pants off on Regis and Kelly

Kate says when the kids are with Jon she waits around for them to call her to come home. Oh, really? Is that why the kids were screaming their heads off when Jon returned them to you earlier in August?
video
Kate also says she is the sole provider of the family. Actually your KIDs are the sole supporter of the family, not you, Kate. And stop lying and pretending that Jon is deliberately not paying child support when you know he's been completely set up by TLC to either participate in their show or be thrown to the streets.

The TRUTH: Their divorce was made final in December and by all accounts Jon was ordered to pay a 5-figure monthly child support payment. But earlier, a judge in the TLC breach of contract lawsuit had ruled that Jon cannot take a job outside TLC. TLC has since settled with Jon.

Jon has been prohibited from making money by TLC, including being prohibited from doing a lucrative Superbowl commercial last year that could have paid many months of child support payments. It's TLC who is preventing Jon from making money and then setting Kate up to complain he doesn't pay. In addition, if you have a problem with someone paying child support, take them to court. They can have their wages garnished and even thrown in jail. Stop trying Jon in the court of public opinion and go back to your lawyers. Unbelievable, Kate.

She is a compulsive liar she really is. She has a problem and she needs help.

So I guess all the photos we have of Jon with the kids for TWO WEEKS last winter while Kate screwed around in Hollywood was when Jon was never with the kids.

She also needs to get over Jon.

Paula said...

Did Kate actually say Jon did not pay child support? Wow... There is documented evidence that he pays child support.

My goodness she needs professional help.

Hippie Chick said...

I can't believe the lies that were spewing out of her mouth today!! It blows me away. I wish I was in the audience, and I wish Anderson Cooper had the balls to say "What the hell, you lying wench!?". I know he wanted too.

And I agree Admin, get over Jon. She obviously isn't yet, or she is still looking for attention. Get over YOURSELF Kate!!

Hippie Chick said...

Sorry to post again, It got me when they asked "What do you do when Jon has the kids?" and Kate said "I wait for the call because they want to come home". I was like Whaaaa??? They never want to come home!! AND, you're our gallavanting all over the place! You're never thinking about your kids! Sorry. She's got me riled up. She is such a liar.

Administrator said...

Methinks TLC is desperate to throw Jon under the bus because they either need something from him or need him to stop doing something. He is being bullied. Otherwise why do they care what he does???

TLC is desperate. It feels like he is being blackmailed almost.

SchmeckyGirl said...

I watched Regis and Kelly and it was DISGUSTING! Does she realize that those kids are Jon's too and by him allowing them to be filmed he is supporting "financially" just as much as she is. She's not "working" and Jon's not "working." The only difference is Jon isn't being filmed "not working" but Kate is.

SchmeckyGirl said...

I can't believe how she made Jon out to be a deadbeat dad. I would love to know the "truth" about Jon paying child support and his visitation with the children.

Administrator said...

Ellen says they can't comment on this. So basically, TLC has a gag order on Team Jon from responding to Kate's laundry list of lies. Kate can say whatever she wants and Jon better STFU or be in violationg of TLC's iron fist. This is total bullshit. He needs to get himself and his kids away from this whole disgusting mess.

I'm going to repost the video of the kids screaming. If Kate is going to lie up and down Manhattan we're going to post it a THIRD TIME.

SchmeckyGirl said...

Admin,

Interesting... You said "they" can't comment on this. Why can't Ellen? How is she tied down by TLC? I would think Ellen can say whatever she wants. TLC doesn't own her. Just Jon. I think at this point Ellen should speak for Jon. He is entitled to defend himself.

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

Kate is a repugnant liar!

I came home just in time to catch Wendy Williams (who is usually supportive of Kate's circumstance), and she basically said that Kate needs to get away from show business, open up a specialty clothing store, and live her life peacefully.

The funny part was that she was discussing that people in Kate's neighborhood are angry about Kate bringing her kids clothes (that were free to begin with) to a consignment shop, even if she earns a pretty buck to begin with.

First Wendy polled the audience "who watches Kate's show anymore", amid groans and laughter, one woman in the back reluctantly raised her hand.

Little by little, people are getting tired of Kate and her silly tricks.

Anonymous said...

Sharon here- So does TLC also have everyone in Jon's family in a gag order? What, did they get to Ellen as soon as they found out she was dating Jon to shut her up? Anyone who has or can speak ill of Kate is not even in the media-anywhere? I'm so mad at myself for even watching R+K today but I wanted to see what Anderson Cooper would do. You know he wanted to investigate more. Thought it was funny how quick they went to a commercial- almost as soon as they brought her on. I couldn't believe the lies she was saying either? When she said the kids liked being home- I would have asked why she doesn't let Jon come into their house? Why can't one of Jon's friends come out and speak? I'm sure he has plenty who would! So sick of this one-sidedness! Also- saying she has this new career- what- of making fun of herself? I would have asked her what she will do after there is no more show- since the ratings have been tanking! I loathe this woman and her entire brand!

JudyK said...

Just started and I want to jump through the screen and BITCHSLAP that lying fraud. The kids "play" while she "works"...if I were in the audience, I would boo her.

mommyinca said...

Did she mention Twist of Kate at all? Why wouldn't she promote it if it's premiering this fall?

Jon, if you're reading here, RUN don't walk to Paul Peterson! You can make a career out of advocating for children. You could be the national spokesman for child advocacy in reality television. Once you've worked for a while and proven yourself serious to the public, you will be a hero. Kate needs to stop lying and stop using YOUR children for her personal gain. This is not "for the kids". The kids want privacy. They NEED a parent to protect them. They make love all the "stuff" they're getting but it doesn't amount to a hill of beans if they don't have privacy and stability. They may get it at your house, Jon, but not at the studio (Kate's house). There are so many people out there waiting to cheer you on. Please take the first step. We will have your back :)

lalaland said...

Other lies......when Jon has the kids she waits at home for the phone to ring with kids asking to come home. Anderson Cooper said so you're saying the kids don't enjoy spending time with their father? She basically said sometimes.

I can't believe she thinks it's ok to speak this way about their father on national television.

Michelle said...

Wow! Almost lost my breakfast on that interview. "I am the sole support of my kids", "I work and the kids play along side of me working", "When Jon has the kids I wait for calls from whichever ones want to come home", "Having their father in their lives is very different for them because it's so new to them". WTF!!

She is beyond sick and TLC is appalling for encouraging and supporting this behavior. And I just can't believe Jon has to sit by and take this BS because TLC has him by the balls.

JON - CALL GLORIA ALLRED AND PAUL PETERSON TODAY!! EXPOSE TLC FOR TURNING YOUR FAMILY INTO "THE TRUMAN SHOW".

LaurelLee said...

I didn't watch the Regis and Kelly show. Was it a repeat?

Whatever happened to the arrangement where Jon would live in the "mansion" during his time with the kids and Kate would be elsewhere? I thought that was so civil and a great arrangement for the kids.

JudyK said...

Kate is on Regis and Kelly today and Trump is on Monday, which I won't be able to see, because the show will no longer be broadcast here, but there's an obvious meetup going on between Kate and Trump for the next Celebrity Apprentice. Trump is best friends with Regis, so he can pull the Kate strings to promote her for his own benefit. I hope she is on that show, because she will alienate everyone and fail miserably.

Product Placement said...

I think people need to know the mastermind behind the exploitation of the Gosselin family.

Eileen O’Neill PRESIDENT AND GM TLC

Eileen O'Neill leads all key business functions at TLC, including development, programming, production, digital media, marketing, research and communications. She works in partnership with ad sales and affiliate sales to generate revenue and increase the value of the TLC brand.

Before assuming responsibility for TLC in July 2008, O'Neill served as president and general manager of Planet Green, the first and only 24-hour eco-lifestyle television network. She is credited with launching the network from the ground up in less than 12 months, and with more than 250 hours of all-original programming. She drew an authoritative and diverse group of celebrities and personalities including Adrian Grenier, Tom Bergeron, Emeril Lagasse, Maria Menounos, Tom Brokaw and Bob Woodruff to share their passion for the planet through a host of entertaining series and specials.

O'Neill also previously served as executive vice president and general manager of Discovery Health Channel. In 2007, she simultaneously ran Discovery Health and TLC on an interim basis during a period of management transition at TLC.

Under O'Neill, Discovery Health earned record ratings in all day-parts, including the strongest delivery ever during August 2005. Standout shows developed under her leadership include MYSTERY DIAGNOSIS, DR. G MEDICAL EXAMINER and JON & KATE PLUS 8, now the top-rated series on TLC.

Prior to joining Discovery Health, O'Neill was director of scheduling for Travel Channel, and earlier she served as director of business affairs, responsible for all contract negotiations concerning co-productions, commissioned programming and original work for Discovery Channel, TLC and Animal Planet.

O'Neill describes herself as "homegrown talent," having started at Discovery Communications as an unpaid intern while earning a graduate degree in popular culture from Bowling Green State University in Ohio. Having successfully developed a programming library that earned the respect of her professional mentors, she was hired by DCI's networks operation department immediately upon graduation.

Paula said...

I'm with you Admin, what scares and/or threatens TLC so that they have to do EVERYTHING to keep Jon quiet?

SwingsandRoundabouts said...

I cannot believe the lies that came out of Kate's mouth this morning. I had stopped posting about the witch but I am so incensed about her behavior this morning that I had to say something.

I had the feeling that Anderson Cooper didn't buy her lies and would have asked more probing questions but perhaps out of courtesy or realizing the futility of getting any truth out of Kate, he stopped.

Her dishonesty is breathtaking. She is completely deceitful and disgusting. Now I remember why I dislike her so much. I so badly want to see her comeuppance and for the truth to come out.

Kate, you are a BAD MOM.

mama mia said...

Please fill us in Admin, I don't watch and would like to follow along with this thread. Thanks.

Administrator said...

I explained to Ellen that TLC has no right to put her under any gag order. She feels she can't and also that it will make it worse for Jon.

Oh and also, she has class and doesn't dignify Kate's garbage with a response. That part's my take anyway.

Administrator said...

I just want to add even assuming Kate's totally baseless lies are true, just for a second let's assume they are true. Jon doesn't provide for the kids (bullshit, his name is on their contract just like hers), Jon isn't with the kids (bullshit we have the picture proof), Jon is a deadbeat.

EVEN if it's all true....this crazy woman is going on national TV bashing the children's father. It's disgusting. I don't care if he's the unibomber, you don't do that to your kids. She is truly a piece of work. A selfish piece of work.

Bones said...

In a nutshell, the more Kate bashes Jon and makes it out to be that she does all the work and has to support the kids by herself, the more the job offers for her will pour in.

She did what she did today as a way to make Hollywood feel bad for her and throw a job her way. She was not above lying through her teeth to get what she wants.

I encourage you all to go to the Regis and Kelly Facebook page and contribute to the criticism of Kate's appearance on the show today. I saw there are already several people there taking her to task about her low blows today.

She is a sick woman and totally believes her own lies. Somebody high up needs to call her out publicly on her piss poor hateful self.

Twitch said...

Hey Kate,

Some of "us" need to just be quiet and cook dinner.

She's just trash. Pure trash.

Lee said...

How is whether or not Jon is paying child support even relevant? That doesn't change the fact that the CHILDREN should not be supporting themselves.

Nor does it change the fact that they should be entitled to private lives, and the chance to grow up without days filled with strangers, cameras, forced "playtime" and notoriety.

The show's tanking; let the whining begin anew. Fortunately, with the show off the air, this idiot will discover that it's more and more difficult to find a platform for her self-pitying, entitled and irresponsible act.

Something is happening and TLC is freaking out in full on panic mode. Quick Kate go out there and bash Jon for all he's worth. They are in a total frenzy. Things that make you go hmmm.

Anonymous said...

Complete BS. Once again, throwing Jon,their father, under the bus on national tv.How can we stop this woman?? Those who collect a paycheck around her, including her manservant, Steve,how can you sleep at night???Stand up and expose her for what she is. I hope you post the video of the kids screaming-let's hope it gets more exposure.

JenK said...

I was under the impression, and correct me if I'm wrong, that Jon's child support payments were being taken from a lump sum in the form of him signing over the house to Kate. That this happened in their last arrangement. Otherwise, how else could she bar him from a piece of property he also owns?

I thought I read that somewhere (here?) that the reason she has total control over the house ("all MINE as far as the eye can see!") now is because she knew he couldn't afford the payments and came up with an arrangement that deducts $20K or whatever it is out of the amount he owned in the house.

So she gets everything and he gets a break on the support until his share of the house's value is depleted in months of non-support. Which is STILL support, she's just getting it all for herself instead.

Could this be how she justifies her comments about not receiving "child support"? You know how she likes to parse things to her liking...

Hippie Chick said...

I twittered Jon & said "More lies on Regis & Kelly this morning. Your supporters know the truth Jon." And he wrote me back & said "Thanks Jenna. So True". I feel bad that he can't speak out against these erroneous lies. When will this gag order be lifted so he can speak his side & people will see that Kate is just a liar? It's sad for the kids because you know they will see this when they are older. Sorry to post again. Thanks Admin. :)

Administrator said...

I wish Anderson would have called her out. The kids don't want to be with Jon? How about when Jamie had to DRAG them by the wrists at the Chinese restaurant over to Kate because not one of her eight children wanted to sit with her.

SchmeckyGirl said...

Well that explains why Tom Bergeron said such nice things about Kate.

Totally Mind Boggling said...

How many times do the kids call Jon and beg to go to his place? I'm sure it's far more often than when they call Kate wanting to come home, but she forgot to mention that.

I hope people with common sense realize that when there is a divorce and the parents hate each other, the kids ARE going to pull the better parent card. If you tell me "No", I'm calling daddy! If you tell me "No", I'm calling mommy!

And with 8 kids, this probably happens a lot.

If I didn't hate her enough before today, I do now. Un-fricken-believable!

JudyK said...

All one has to do is to look at the faces of those children when they are with Kate, as opposed to when they are with Jon alone or with Jon and Ellen. They always look miserable with Kate and always look like happy, normal children when they are with Jon. Thanks for reposting the video, Administrator.

Absolutely!! Ellen's a smart cookie. So is Jon. I'd keep quiet, too. As Kate continues to spew her lies, people are going to see what she is made of. Just let her go. She's going to dig a hole so deep she's never going to come out of it. There are times when saying nothing is best, and I would hope Jon sees this. The truth will come out, but at least he (and Ellen) aren't contributing to a media war of "he said, she said, she lies, he lies." That's what turns people off because they don't know what to believe.

She's running scared now. She knows the show is over, and the only way she can stay on top is to look like the victim and call attention to herself. It's not going to work. People aren't stupid (except the sheeple).

Ellen and Jon -- take the high road. It's the only road.

Dee said...

Wow. I didn't watch because I didn't want to add to her ratings. She is despicable. How can she even show her face? She is embarassing not only herself but her kids. How low can that woman go with her lies and bashing her own kids' father? I think it is time for someone to stand up and look at this situation. These children do not deserve this at all. All these videos and pictures show the kids are not happy with her and are happy when they are Jon. I can't believe she actually thinks people blieve her pity stories. Please someone stand up for these poor kids.

wayward said...

Where are her PR people and who approved this garbage? I would hope no competent PR person would approve their client taking this route. Not to mention the legal ramifications of lying on Nat'l TV about his payment record. Therefore, I think Kate the loose cannon went rogue and against advice. She is trying to go back to last year when she was the "victim" and the tide of public opinion swayed somewhat to her side. Now with the show tanking and the public throughly sick of her, bashing Jon is a desperate act from a desperate woman. She's again trying to pull the "please watch my show, I have to feed my kids because their Dad is a deadbeat" card. What a lousy POS she is.


Fortunately, except for the 12 sheeple, most people can see for themselves that Jon has been living a semi-private homebody life, photographed regularly with the kids and in a stable relationship. While Kate has prancing around half-dressed with her boobyguard all summer and acting like a complete fool on her show. Just keep digging your hole Kate, you're pretty darn close to hitting obsolete.

JenK said...

This is really an injustice on so many levels. On what planet can a father not assert his parental rights and his freedom of speech because a television network says he can't? I can't even believe this is happening.

The fastest way to a resolution of this entire travesty is to find a lawyer or lawyers and a judge who will lift this gag order and let Jon speak freely. That alone will end this. If all of the truth came out, it would be over and Jon would have the parental rights he's entitled to and the kids would have peace. He needs to fight this in a court of law where he still has a voice.

Michelle said...

I too wish Anderson would have called her out. Like when she said she's the sole support of her kids, ask her "aren't the kids basically supporting themselves by being filmed". Why can't you earn a living without your children being filmed? If she came back with the standard "they're playing" response, ask her what she does differently than them while being filmed and interviewed that qualifies her's as work and their's as play. Or ask her if she feels a child psychologist would condone her slamming her children's father on national TV. If this is the BS she spews on national TV, can you imagine what the kids hear on a daily basis.

This is the lowest level Kate and TLC have stooped to in my opinion and I hope people see it for what it is. Pure desperation.

I also really hope this gets people, especially the so called "haterz" to turn it off on Monday. It will rerun in the future and you can see Kate in her full glory down the road when ratings don't count, but make a clear statement about her actions with your remote control.

TLC stinks said...

I have never watched Regis and am so glad that I missed this show. I wonder what the deal was with those lawyers of Jon's to allow him to be totally emasculated by TLC? In a round about way, ol' Jon Boy is paying child support by keeping his mouth shut and allowing the filming to continue which puts money in Kate's pocket....that's got to be the deal with TLC. I would think that whatever TLC forced him to sign would be considered so onerous that he could sue and win.

mama mia said...

Do you think TLC puts Kate up to this so the blogs will go crazy and talk more about her? It does seem to be almost a script with her - throw Jon under the bus, whine about doing it all alone.

BerksPa said...

The only thing she forgot to bring to the studio today was her purse full of unpaid bills.
She's scrapping the bottom of the barrel, trying to get viewers.
Problem is. We saw her on DWTS. We know she made a reported HUGE profit from her short lived stint.
We know she gets paid quite a bit from TLC plus has all the perks of free vacations, clothing for the kids sent in by people who want to market off them, etc.

Viewers are no longer stupid, and are no longer going to be the Kate Gosselin Gravy Train on her Narcissistic Tour. She lives a life most people in this day and age could only dream of living, yet there she goes again bashing her ex, complaining about having to 'do it all'. She's a piece of work and I'm sure in the next few years there will be a chapter in every Psychology/Sociology book dedicated just to HER psychosis.

silimom said...

Wow. Well, first off Anderson Cooper knows what it's like to grow up in the spotlight. I am sure he feels for these kids but he also knows that Kate isn't real news and doesn't want her already over inflated ego to get any bigger.

Someone could send him the tape and ask him to do a serious story about kids in reality show television and the effects. He might.

BeDoneNow said...

Sounds like Ellen has Jon's back, whether she is under legal obligation to do so or not. :)

I am so very disappointed in AC. It sounds like he is just treating her like a media-annoyance that will flitter away sometime soon. Too bad he refuses to dust off his investigative journalist hat, and do something to advocate for the children. If those 8 were in some foreign country, he'd be on it like a shot. He above all people should know that living in luxury does not mitigate neglect and abuse.

Consider for a moment that Kate's recent tirade is NOT TLC approved...but instead her own desperate ploy to get the sheeple back in line. Hey - it has worked so many times before, right? TLC doesnt care about Jon or this family, I dont think at this point they are bothering to try to script her anymore. They are done.

Anonymous said...

So basically the intent of her interview was to bash her children's father on national TV. What a despicable woman. In her own mind, she is so far from reality that it is scary. Get ready for a break-down because it is coming. When that happens, she'll make sure everyone knows that it is not her fault.

Westcoaster said...

So they're just getting used to having their father in their lives? Good thing I wasn't actually drinking my coffee when I read that one.
Let's see, there are hours and hours of tape that show their father doing pretty much all of the childcare chores in the years that he lived with them, and oh wait, more hours of the time that they spend with him now. Crazy biotch.

Would love to know what Anderson Cooper really said when he saw who today's 'guest' was going to be. She works while they play? Who is she kidding? I hope that the R&K Facebook page gets lots and lots of comments today.

Livvy said...

Someone should have asked Kate why she doesn't take Jon to court to get child support. We know he is paying or she would have had his butt in court a long time ago. This was just a bitch fest against Jon. Notice she didn't promote "twist of kate". Nothing to say about what she has coming up. Because she has nothing coming up. Totally scripted questions to respond to all her bad pr. I have been angry with Kate before but have NEVER seen such appaling bald faced lies come come from anyone mouth. I am just so angry.

PatE said...

Ellen should stay OUT of it. TLC will come after her, and no one can stand up to them.

Jon needs a good lawyer....like the one he fired. Sometimes Jon tries to be the "nice" guy and gets walked over, time and time again.

He needs to realize there's no compromize with Kate. She will NEVER willingly give an inche of control. Let the lawyers handle it.

Kate thinks she is above the law and no rule applies to her.

And TLC has no idea how hated they have become.

Julianna said...

@Administrator: Something is happening and TLC is freaking out in full on panic mode. Quick Kate go out there and bash Jon for all he's worth.

88888888888888888

You got that right. The show is tanking, TLC knows it, she knows it and the only way to up the ratings is to have her play the victim, the martyr. TLC figures it's fine to let her go on national television and bash Jon if it helps ratings. Viewers will sympathize, knowing this is her only means of support, so by keeping the show going, the viewers are helping the kids. That's their reasoning...and it's delusional. It's going to backfire.

I just wonder why these talk shows continue to give her a forum to discredit him. How long will this continue? I would love for an interviewer to ask her, "If everything you do is for the kids, how is bashing their father on national television show HELPING them in any way?" However, nobody seems willing to put her on the spot. Why?

When all of this is said and done, Jon is the one who is going to come out on top. Have you noticed how, in the past, the tabs and blogs were throwing him under the bus, but lately, so many of them have gone over to his side because her lies are being exposed, while he remains quiet -- for the sake of the children. It must be tough to put a gag on yourself and not defend yourself, but, the truth will come out, and the kids will respect their father all the more for it. Maybe not now, maybe not next year, but when they are older they'll look back on this time and realize which parent was in their playing field. Kate will be so far out in left field she won't even be in the ballpark.

just wondering said...

Anyone notice how much younger and fresher Dara Torres looked compared to Kate?

Jon.. Grow a backbone. Get up off your ass and call Paul Petersen. You perpetuate this sham as long as you allow TLC to support you. Why should the rest of us give a shit about those kids when you won't do anything to stop the abuse?

You are allowing this to happen. WHY? For the paycheck? Stupid, stupid man!

Carol said...

I didn't watch it when it aired but did catch it on youtube. The original arrangement was Jon was going to the kids house, and Kate would leave, then the arrangements were changed when Jon was no longer allowed on the property and the kids started to go to his place. The way she twists reality around, you see Jon has been taking the kids for the last 3 months to his apartment, but has always had shared custody. So Kate implies by what she says that Jon has been an absent parent up until 3 months ago.. wtf! I think these interviews hurt her more. There are pictures that prove Jon has continued to be a big part in their childrens lives. That was just horrible what she did to her children today.

Come on now said...

SG,

Your comments are spot on I might add. For the first 4 seasons Kate did not work, except every other weekend, initially, in the special. Who was with all eight those days, another area Jon receives no credit for. He had a job with the state that supposedly turned into working for Bob from home. I personally think he was asked to quit so they could do more filming away from PA. So yeah neither of them worked they allowed themselves and the kids to be filmed. Yet since Jon wanted it stopped TLC is backing Kate. TLC made an example of Jon IMO of how they can be if you dare to cross them or their contract.

The fans cannot see through her but I firmly believe this is why so many people dislike Kate. I know many people go overboard about disliking her and I think quite a few hate her, but this is a perfect example of why I dislike her. There are many like you and I that don't love her, don't hate her we just dislike her for the obvious reason. She is not HONEST.

Jon was ordered to pay child support, but the terms of the divorce are sealed, so nobody knows what the final terms were. So basically Kate can say whatever she wants, if that is the case, and TLC has Jon under contract and therefore under a gag order. This leaves TLC and Kate free to spin away. While I am on this point many fans get up in arms when people say Kate should go back to nursing. But, when TLC said that Jon could return to IT work they never wondered how he could afford to pay what his child support was set at, in that line of work.

The rating have steadily dropped since her new show began. She has been seen of DWTS, EMMY pre show and the talk show rounds. That exposure did nothing to help the show except further hghlight her nasty, arrogant nature. So now TLC has to paint a picture of a single mom which she is not, she is by definition a divorcee, to help boost ratings. The subtile hint here is that this show is needed to sustain her family. To further develope that point lets roll Jon under the bus once more.

When have we seen Kate pick the kids up from Jon? She said today she has when they call and want to come home. IMO another lie. She claims they really are not happy or out of their element when they are with him. We clearly saw from the INF video, that appears untrue. Not to mention the amount of time spent this summer filming. Earlier this year she claimed that visitation was one area they really agree on. Today that idea was not present, she has claimed to be the taken of the high road, good luck with that. Jon is the one that seems to be taking the high road for now and I think that's good. BTW I am not for one second defending Jons' earlier choices.

I honestly do not know with whom I should be frustrated.

1.) Kate for being dishonest. Although we surely have become used to that behavior.

2.) TLC for using these and other children for profit, without concern for their well-being.

3.) Maybe for what happened today when responsible journalists allow Kate to spin a tale.

Anon 1 said...

Admin, your assesment is exactly what I would have said, "she's a piece of work". I especially 'loved' when she talked about how the kids want to be back "home" where they can play w/their toys, be in their pool, blah blah. Really Kate? Why didn't you LET them spend a little of their summer at home? Lying sack of sheet!

Anon 1 said...

Oh, and Anderson totally 'got' her. He isn't dumb enough to go into an interview w/out doing his research. He barely said 10 words to her. I'm sure he threw up a bit in his mouth!
Plus, she is just a lousy guest anyway. No vivaciousness or vitality to her. What a bore. Typical narcissist. Never any fun. (sorry for 2nd post, I'm so peeved over that crap she spewed)

Please...someone email Anderson and Regis the video of kids not wanting to go back to the compound. And put the link to this site and the video on faceback. If Jon won't come out swinging and hire a good lawyer, maybe we can still get the truth out.

Also, TLC can be sued.

Anonymous said...

Wow...is this TLC's way of garnering more viewers to pump up their ratings?! Seeing Kate's past poor promotional skills, how much of her segment was used to talk about Kate Plus 8?

TLC and Kate sure know how to tick us off and get us riled up. We need to send a strong message to them that all this needs to stop.

Sorry TLC, but this is more of a reason us "haters" need to band together, more than ever, and not tune-in to Kate Plus 8. Let's get her ratings under one million next week!

Gimme Gimme said...

Liar, Liar, pants on fire. How can she get away with that? Because she knows Jon can't respond. Why was she allowed to come on a major network and spew lies and hatred. I am going to let Regis and Kelly and Gilmo or whatever his name is know about the lies she just told using their show as a forum. Probably, they were the only ones that would let her come on and lie like that. Those are personal things that she was discussig. Enough already. We've seen your boobs and your thong, you don't have to share everything, Khatan.

Ellie said...

She is so absolutely crazy. Flimsy flamsly around? Oh Kate learn English and stop your "baby" talk. I so over her and over this. I watched Regis and Kelly SUCH A BLOWHARD!!! GO away!!!!! oh and what is up with the outfit? Nice bra strap Kate! So is that her new thing? Prove she wears a bra by allowing us all to see the straps? Good grief this women is the same age as me but acts as if she is 20 and look as if she is 50 plus TRYING to look 35. UGH

Lolly said...

So Kate's ONLY reason for going on Regis was to throw Jon under the bus again. Good going TLC and Kate. SHAME on you. You keep putting Jon down, THIS IS THE KIDS FATHER. I truly am really beginning to hate those invoived in this. WHY DOES THIS WITCH GO ON NATIONAL TV and discuss PERSONAL crap AND LIE? High road my A@@.

Anne said...

Could Jon sue Kate for libel/slander? If he is paying child support and she is publicly stating that he isn't, it is considered slander/libel?

Ellie said...

Jon's recent tweet/twitter whatever it's called:

As much as I want to respond to numerous LIES recently claimed on Regis and Kelly, I will refrain. I have learned from the past that it’s a waste of my time and energy. I am “rising above”, and refuse to engage in any sort of public argument that could potentially harm or upset my children. My children and the people in my life know the truth, and that is what’s important.

Kate Gosselin, Jersey Shore wannabe said...

Kate acts like a jilted ex-wife, when she was the one who told Jon the marriage was over. She's trying to get her revenge but her dressing like a sexy MILF looks more like she is going to hang out with the cast of the Jersey Shore - isn't it a bit early to go fist-pumping at 9am?

TLC and Kate are scraping the bottom of the barrel, if Jon is the only thing Kate can talk about in her interviews. Sorry Kate, but if this continues, you'll always be known as Jon & Kate Plus 8, not just Kate.

livvy said...

There were comments recently, maybe from Ellen that they were working to get the 8 off tv. Maybe this is true and Kate and TLC are trying to get one up on Jon by starting a negative campaign against him. If this is the case it won't work. You see, Kate wanted every minute of their lives on film. These films will prove her a big fat liar. Another thought. Kate and Steve in NYC, probably at the Essex House and not a pap pic anywhere. Not even from Chris. BTW, I had my wedding reception at the Essex House. It is very nice but not the Plaza.

cathy518 said...

Kate's shinny pants are on fire! What I am most curious about here is the timing of all of this. When that video of Jon dropping his sobbing kids off at the orphanage, the main stream media ignored it completely. No one picked it up and only the bloggers seemed to see it.(being the most intelligent of groups) So it kind of went away and it was the most damaging video I could ever imagine for Kate, and we all know there are so many to chose from. So weeks after, Kate goes on a talk show and makes statements that are sure to bring up that van. Is she deliberately trying to provoke her detractors so that they will tune in again? Speaking for myself, I did not watch this morning and will never watch her on anything.
Star magazine has the story already too, of how the kids don't want to be with Jon.

IDModo said...

I personally think Jon is giving Kate enough rope to hang herself with.In a custody action, these lies, when disproven by factual evidence,could go a long way towards proving Kate's unfitness to have the children. They certainly speak to her delusional mental state.

I think Jon finally knows what he's doing and how he's going to do it; and I think his refusal to speak publicly while Kate trashes him all over the map, is strategic on his part.

There is no doubt that her performance on Regis and Kelly would be considered harmful to the children, if a therapist were ever to speak up about it in court. Added to all the recorded evidence of her capricious and abusive behaviour, Jon could build a very good case for custody or at least more equitable access.

Ellen is wise not to comment.She would become the focus instead of Kate's blatant lying.

Reality Bites said...

Was Kate wearing an earpiece? Not that she would have needed one to answer such obvious scripted questions but it's possible she was and Steve Neild or one of her PR reps were feeding her answers.

Speaking of Neild. Not a single question relevant to the rumors of Kate and Steve being seen getting cozy at the Emmys after parties.

Nothing about Kate's ET - DWTS guest commentator gig either. DWTS is an ABC brand.

Bottom Line:

TLC has advertisers and sponsors to answer to.

That's how this pathetic, exploitative show is financed.

Today's disgusting fake interview with Gosselin just reaffirmed the dumbing down of America at every level. Wish AC would start his own network. He's too good for these asshats.

Call Me Crazy said...

From reading all the posts, it would seem that TLC and Kate have accomplished the desired effect of getting people all worked up into a frenzy of anger about her lying. They are, of course, hoping Kate's media stunt today will translate into people tuning back into the show on Monday.

I really hope people will be even more adamant about not turning the show on, even for a "few minutes" or while "flicking channels."

The greatest power we have is to vote with our remote and refuse to watch. TLC ultimately has to answer to its sponsors, so without the numbers, the sponsors will drop like flies.

I know there are people who just can't help but watch, but it would be awesome if everyone could show restraint just this one Monday to send TLC a very loud and clear message. They are on the ropes. We can deliver the final knockout punch by letting them know we are not falling for their stunts. We can help those children get their private lives back.

Whatevah said...

I think If Kate was on AC's show he WOULD have called her out but he's on neutral territory at R&K and it wasn't the time or place.
(snort) Not like Kate would ever agree to do a one-on-one interview with AC. She knows he'd send her a** to the cleaners - and then send her the bill.

Anonymous said...

Jon is probably under a gag order NOT to talk to anyone. So if Ellen spoke out, it would be viewed as JON violating the gag order by talking to her, it would have no consequence to Ellen.

JMO.

AND AGAIN: Why the FREE PASS for Katie Irene? Why won;t ANYONE ask her ANYTHING!!!!

Sorry, but this WITCH makes my blood boil! I wish that this entire blogsite, as well as GWOP's blogsite, could be sent to a serious reporter, like Anderson Cooper, so someone could hear this entire sad story, not just bits and pieces. She needs a class action suit against her, to save those poor kids.How can a CHRISTIAN WOMAN, tell so many blatant lies, and not blink an eye doing it? I hope she does get to be on Celbrity Aprentice, as she will only make a bigger fool of herself, and we can sit back and laugh our heads off, once a week, until she gets booted off. She will be a fish out of water. Big,Blond,BigBoobed Bozo!

Michelle said...

So Jon was just on Rabbi Schmuley's show saying he wants the kids off TV and is working on it. The permits run through October. Perhaps a new contract needs to be worked out and Jon isn't budging about letting the kids be filmed this time around. Perhaps Kate and TLC decided to once again make it look like he was denying his children food and shelter by taking away Kate's income since she is the "sole provider" and if he denies the children being filmed, the "sole provider" has lost her income.

They don't see how calling Kate the "sole provider" who can't make a living without filming her children is a complete oxymoron. A "sole provider" provides for the children not the other way around.

Just a thought. There has to be some reason they'd put Kate on national TV with no purpose other than to bash Jon almost a year post-divorce.

If this is the case, I hope Jon stands strong and keeps the kids off TV. As he said on Twitter, his children and those he loves know the truth. That's all that matters really. Let Kate and TLC bash away. In the end, the children's lives do matter more than Jon's reputation being soiled by Kate and TLC's lies and maybe he's reached the point where he realizes that.

Whatevah said...

I just saw the story hit ROL. The 'haterz' keep posting and someone keeps responding "go to the imdb board". To be honest? I think ALL comments should just stop. The more the 'haterz' post, the better she looks and the happier ROL/TLC are because they think it proves Kate is still 'newsworthy'. I really wish people would not post on those stories. It's up to us to prove she is irrelevant by the "Silence Is Golden" rule.

IATK said...

Administrator said...
I just want to add even assuming Kate's totally baseless lies are true, just for a second let's assume they are true. Jon doesn't provide for the kids (bullshit, his name is on their contract just like hers), Jon isn't with the kids (bullshit we have the picture proof), Jon is a deadbeat.

EVEN if it's all true....this crazy woman is going on national TV bashing the children's father. It's disgusting. I don't care if he's the unibomber, you don't do that to your kids. She is truly a piece of work. A selfish piece of work.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Admin, my first thought as well. It sounds like the worst part of Kate's appearance was not the lies (which were bad enough), but the fact that she did not for one second consider her children when she decided to bash their father on national TV. There's nothing good about what Kate did and everything wrong with it and it sounds like it was a cunning, cold and calculated act. I'm very sorry for the children that she choose to handle it this way. They deserve so much more.

Liar, Liar, pants on Fire said...

We know that Jon is paying his child support because he is not in jail. She told him when it was brought up once that he would go to jail if he did not pay. He signed the contract with TLC to be silent soon thereafter.

What was she supposed to promoting?

mama mia said...

And now it is official, Kate hates her Ex far more than she loves her children. She took the low road for sure when answering that question about how she spends HER time when the kids are with Jon. You shop Kate, you manicure, you hang out in parking lots getting your picture taken.

Come on now said...

Open letter to AC and Kelly:

Disappointed with the fact that when it comes to Kate G. respectable journalism disappears. Never expected you to badger her but come on, a recent video shows these children upset about going back to Kate. Terms of her divorce are sealed but she says she is sole support, leaking sealed info. Is she evasive much? With all the trying issues we face today she should not be on the radar. Well except that TLC and Kelly work together as well. Maybe Kelly could get her an Electrolux washer gig, "nobody can spin like Electrolux except for me Kate Gosselin." LOL

emschick1128 said...

Why is she even on Regis and Kelly?? She never ceases to amaze me at what a low life she is. Of course she's telling all lies but even if she wasn't, he's still her kids father and she should not be bashing him publicly. Kelly has 3 kids, I can only imagine what she thinks of Kate. I just don't get why they keep giving her airtime?

Nancy said...

In my own humble opinion as a divorced NOT single mom who puts aside the BS for my kids when needed and deals with the ex..... She has not only broken the very first rule of co-parenting with your ex and continually speaks badly about him, in true Kate fashion she went on TV to do it... totally unbelievable who is advising this woman??? I swear to god she actually believes that if she says it it is true no matter how much documented (filmed) evidence there is. Her little world must be a fascinating place to live...

PJ's momma said...

I did see it, out of morbid curiosity. (I confess to looking at train wrecks too.) At one point, as she was talking about herself ('the kids want to be home playing with their toys - and spending time with ME'....as if she is ever home), she got a panicked little look on her face as she looked from Kelly to Anderson. I suspect he had the same "WTF" look on his face that he had when the camera was on him. He did ask if their relationship is as contentious as it seems and she said it's day by day, and made it seem ALL Jon's fault, but she tries hard because no matter what, he is still their father. Their father that she is constantly bashing in public. She is SO calculating in the way she phrases things - making it sound like the kids hadn't seen their dad until three months ago, instead of the fact that the back and forth from their house to his started three months ago. I don't get the purpose of her being on the show. I really don't. But it sure drives home the fact that she does NOT get that she is famous because of her kids. They are not famous because of her. She is INFAMOUS on her own because she's such a witch, but her kids made her famous, not the other way around. God, please forgive me, I despise that woman.

SmileyGrl752 said...

I wonder if Meredith Viera and the other sheeple believe that. I think (and hope) that eventually all of America sees Kate's true colors. And why does Kate need child support, if she gets $25,000 an episode? Sorry if that sounds dense.

Naomi said...

I just saw the Anderson and Kelly clip on radar. BARF!!! Kate is sick in the head.

Canuck said...

I didn't need to see the show to have a VERY clear picture of what went on - thanks Admin and others. This woman simply will not learn, will she. About lying. Bald-faced lying to a NATIONAL television audience - not very smart. If the hope was to redeem herself in some way, garner sympathy, turn the tide away from this now (seemingly) huge trend away from any interest in her whatsoever...apparently she failed miserably. She is NOT a high-road taker. She is NOT a contract honorer. I find it almost impossible to believe that she sits by the phone waiting for her children to call her begging to come home from their Dad's house when they're visiting with him. First of all, which phone would that be??? She is rarely home, even when the kids are in her (their?) residence. What a crock of ****. To Schmecky...I did get a chuckle at Tom Bergeron on last Sunday's America's Funniest Videos. Can't recall the content of the video, but Bergeron's comment was something along the lines of.."that guy doesn't want to go home, almost as badly as Jon Gosselin didn't want to go home". Very funny...maybe Tom Bergeron isn't such a fan after all. In fact, I don't imagine there are many fans left at all - today's appearance on Regis & Kelly will only result in more disdain, from more people, coast-to-coast. Another blunder Kate...when will you learn to STFU...?

Jackie R said...

I can't imagine that a gag order or contract clause that would be enforceable that would prevent Jon from simply saying, "I pay substantial child support monthly and up to date on my payments. I have regularly spent time with my children since our divorce and would like to spend even more time with them. I don't wish to comment further because I have made the mistake in the past of talking too much to the press. It is not in my best interest or in the interests of my children."

livvy said...

Just wondering if TLC realizes that it isn't just Kate going down the tubes but she is taking TLC with her. Maybe that is why they are trying so desperately to rehab her. People haven't just stopped watching Kate but all of TLC programmimg too.

Liisa said...

What a thoroughly disgusting human being Kate is. Where did this little, meek voice come from that we hear in interviews? Those of us who watched her nag and verbally abuse Jon for years know that her voice is shrill, annoying, not unlike an air horn. If I hear her throw Jon under the bus one more time I'm really going to lose it. She wants to play like her kids have an uninvolved, disinterested father? She needs to come and live my life, dealing with my daughters dad, and see what a real deadbeat dad is like. Jon Gosselin is a lot of things, but deadbeat dad and uninvolved father he is NOT! Kate is an embarrassment to us truly single mothers (she's not a single mom, she's a DIVORCED mom) who struggle every day to get by with no help from a man. She's got all the help she needs, and then some. Get off it Kate. We're not buying it.

Julianna said...

"I think Jon finally knows what he's doing and how he's going to do it; and I think his refusal to speak publicly while Kate trashes him all over the map, is strategic on his part."

8888888888888

Yes, he does. Finally. He's done good. The less he says, the more angry she will become. Her kind likes to provoke, and when there's no retaliation on his part, it's just going to annoy her more. She's looking for a fight, just to stay in the public eye and evoke sympathy. He's not giving her what she wants. His strategy will prove so much more effective in the long run...plus his kids aren't going to be hurt in the process.

--------------------

@just wondering..."Why should the rest of us give a shit about those kids when you won't do anything to stop the abuse? You are allowing this to happen. WHY? For the paycheck? Stupid, stupid man!"

88888888888888888

I think he's much smarter than many people give him credit for. There may be much more going on behind the scenes than we know, than he is not able to release publicly. Let him do his thing. He needs support right now, not name-calling.

Anonymous said...

After reading comments above I went to R-O-L and watched the brief video. I like the look on Anderson Cooper's face - 'I don't believe a word you're saying'. I was disappointed through when he didn't follow through and ask obvious questions. One of which might have been, "Why doesn't Jon have his visitation days at the house?". All in all she has broken the cardinal rule - don't disrespect your children's father no matter how you may feel about him. Their schoolmates will no doubt hear about this, tease them and just make their little lives more miserable. TLC has to put an end to this.

Nancy said...

How on earth do these poor kids face their friends everyday at school with such and unbalanced crazy mother running around spewing garbage to anyone who will listen????

Lynn said...

Is there no stopping this wannabe fame whore? Who in their right mind listens to her drivel? If the kids want to stay home and play with their toys, LET THEM. LET JON come to their house as he was supposed to do and did when the separation first occurred. This woman is a bold faced liar. Has she no shame? Did not Jon and Kate both state that the house belonged to the children and Jon and Kate would rotate custody at the kid's house? What is wrong with these "parents?" I did not watch Regis and Kelly today, but SHAME on them for having Kate on their show to spew her venomous lies. I thought she was taking the high road??? Guess not.................LOL

Canuck said...

IDModo - I totally agree. I think this is the perfect time for Jon (and Ellen) to sit tight, behave themselves, do not respond or reciprocate to Kate's obvious dishonesty. Anyone with half a brain can see that these constant attacks, innuendo, sly comments, jabs, pokes, not to mention OUTRIGHT LIES against the father of those children, is abusive. Nothing else to call it. She is a very immature woman with the depth of an earthworm. She will hang herself...wait and see. Jon - either recruit yourself some legitimate assistance (I thought the Paul Petersen/Allred suggestion was a good one) or do nothing for the time being. I feel strongly that Kate's day of reckoning is close...and she has only herself to blame. She has always been master of what will ultimately be her destiny...irrelevance and obscurity.

BerksPa said...

I just watched the portion of the show where Kate is saying it's hard for the kids because they want to be in their own house, playing with their own toys...Well, why doesn't she let JON visit them in the children's home? ? ? He's damned if he does, damned if he doesn't.
And that glossy lipstick HAS to go. My 11 yo where's stuff like that.

wayward said...

Just throwing this out there.... could Jon possibly be testifying at Rep. Murt's upcoming hearing? Or was all testimony over & done with at the spring hearing? I'm a PA resident, but my 9th grade PA civics class was a looong time ago:) I don't recall how the process works.

Pinocchio said...

Doesn't Kelly do her homework, or is she so far in Kate's court that she wouldn't dare upset her? When Kate was going on and on about the visitation arrangement, why didn't Kelly ask Kate what happened to the initial agreement that the kids would stay in the house and not be shuffled from place to place?

So many missed opportunities to ask questions and put this psychotic person on the spot. Oh well, she's dug her own grave. She'll reap the consequences (but I'd still like to hear her stammer and stutter when asked some really hard questions...just to see the lies she could come up with!)

Warmth of the Sun said...

Could it be that Kate is so far "gone" that she actually believes what she says to be true? We've all seen the change in her...the Hollywood wannabe, the hooker dressing, her bizarre behavior. Is this going to be the straw the broke the proverbial camel's back -- is this the one that makes people sit up and say, wait a minute...there's a seriously disturbed individual here who really needs professional help?

Must Love Dogs said...

What was the purpose of this woman going on Regis and Kelly today? To make everyone feel sorry for her! Puleeezzzz we have heard enough of her cry story to last a life time. I didn't watch but what I have read she better get a new PR team cause this one isn't working out for her anymore. She has nothing new to say except the same ole bull crap and America is tired of her. At least I am...get a new life Kate and move on woman!

Liar, Liar, pants on Fire said...

I think I figured it out - remember when someone (wonder who that could have possibly been:) tried to fan the flames and say on one of the boards that Khatan did things like that just to p** us off? That was it - she threw the father of her kids under the bus just to light up the boards. I think she needs that 90% that doesn't like her to start watching again.

Can't believe my ears said...

You know who she should be taking a leson from...Tiger Woods ex wife...That woman kept her private life to herself as well as her kids and only gave one..count em ..one interview with People Magazine and never another to any other news station or talk show. Elin has class and has proven to move on with her life and keep her kids lives private and safe. This twit has to blab all sorts of lies on National tv about her kids and her ex...such trailer trash garbage that spews out of her mouth that it makes me sick. If I were one of her twins I'd be ashamed of her..Their friends and families all know and these kids will never be able to move on cause this twit doesn't know how to shut her trap and stop with the lying...Don't watch her stupid show and hopefully this twit will fade fast....

What was the POINT of her appearance on the show?

Funky White Girl said...

If you notice, every single time Jon reveals a little bit about Kate's parenting, Kate ends up on a talk show to retaliate.

This little bit of info came out about Jon's book coming out ( Kate was asked about it at the Emmy's, and then Hailey opened her pie hole about Jon extorting Kate ), and poof! Now Kate is on another talk show to bad mouth him.

If she were not allowed to bash Jon on Regis and Kelly today, seriously, what would they have had to talk about for 5 minutes? She had absolutely nothing to contribute to a conversation/interview, so she steamrolled Jon to keep the conversation going. Otherwise everyone would've just sat there and looked at each other.

Poor Jon. I know he's made mistakes, but he sure didn't deserve that today. I cannot wait for karma to bite Kate's tanned and toned ass.

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

Just a comment from someone who has spent their career in advertising - the advertiser companies sign off the media buys put together by their ad agencies, but Jennifer Hudson - and anyone else who stars in the spots (or acts or does voiceovers) has no say whatsoever in what airtime is purchased for the spots to run on. My point is, Jennifer Hudson, unless she has come out publicly in support of Kate (which I doubt), cannot be held responsible in the same way as the advertisers.

I definitely think that blacklisting the companies that run on her show - and sending letters to those companies telling them that you won't purchase their products and why - is an effective thing to do. If they feel it's negatively affecting their bottom line, they'll do something. Otherwise, they aren't going to care what anyone thinks because they see it as "any attention to our product is good attention".

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

Well, if TLC and Kate wanted to get people talking about her, they sure have succeeded.

BUT, there is an added bonus involved:

Her over-exposure has made people curious about her, but once they discover about her "shady" history, she has ended up more haters than fans. Kate, you're a joke and a fraud!!

No matter what you say, or do Kate- your show is still going down the crapper. A fact is a fact. Now how about being a REAL mother to your children, and GET THEM & YOURSELF OFF T.V.

Meanwhile for the rest of us:

Check out the suspicious looking scar under her right arm. Looks like someone had a boobie job...

If Kate is hoping to help her image, she is failing badly. No one wants to hear her pitiful talk about being poor, bashing Jon, or that she does everything on her own. We need to keep voting with our "remote." This chick is delusional and needs to be knocked into reality.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Hi Smiley. TV Guide reported that Katie is getting 250,000 per epi; a quarter of a million dollars to whine, complain, demean her children and strut her invisible bra.

** I still think Katie went off-message on R&K this morning. She thinks this schtick bought her sheeple-ratings the other times she pulled it; she knows the ratings are crashing, and she thinks this act is golden; this is all she is, all she knows: complain and insult. Outside of this act, there is nothing in her.

Linda said...

Kate,

You don't know me, but I've seen and heard enough of you that I have a few things to say:

1. You are not a single mom. You are a divorced mom, co-parenting your eight kids with their dad, who is very much in their lives. Every time you call yourself a single mom, you are lying and insulting all those single parents out there who really ARE raising their kids totally on their own.

2. You didn't hurt Jon with your ugly comments today. He knows more than most people how horrible you are and expects nothing better from you. But you did hurt your kids. My mom used to bash my dad, too. It broke our hearts every time. And your kids are EXTRA lucky: your bashing of their dad is done on national TV and recorded for all of posterity! It's obvious you don't give a shit about those kids or how they feel or you would never do that to them. Trust me: it HURTS.

3. Please seek counseling. It's not normal or healthy when someone is as obsessed with themselves as you are. There's help out there. Get it.

4. Jon is doing the smartest thing he can possibly do: he's keeping his head low and his nose clean. He's not clamoring for attention and desperately trying to hold onto the limelight. He's just living his life, not saying a thing, and doing what he needs to do to survive co-parenting with a nightmare like you. You need to realize that the more you bash him and the more he stays quiet, the worse YOU look. Sympathy for Jon is higher than I've seen it since he was on the show and getting browbeaten and humiliated by you on a regular basis. You don't look like a victim. You look like a bully and an asshole.

5. Your time in the spotlight is ending. I don't know if you can see it, but the public has a better, longer view. We've seen this coming for a while. With no discernible talent, your horrible personality, the kids getting older and the show going off the rails, it was inevitable. Have you even thought of what that will be like? No show, no checks, no interviews, no shots on dancing shows, no nothing.

And once you are out of the public eye, getting back in it is near impossible short of being arrested or hospitalized and even then, you just might rate a little "where are they now?" blurb.

6. People aren't going to jump to give you a job once you blow through all that money, which you seem to be doing at a stupendous rate. Even child support doesn't last forever. In your case, it will last another 12 years. That may seem like a long time, but it's really not. Might want to do some planning. And less tanning.

Someone above asked, “Why was she on? What was she promoting?” Besides promoting lies, they previewed a clip for an upcoming episode. The clip had her and Mady in bikinis on the beach getting surf lessons. So as far as I could tell, she was promoting: a United State, an island, a beach, some surf instruction company, beachwear, TLC, child exploitation, and probably a bunch of other stuff I missed, but most likely not.

It was a sad desperate attempt to lure horny misguided males and pedophiles to tune in. Ratings have to come from somewhere.

So why is Huff post and other news organizations running with this?http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/09/10/kate-gosselin-the-kids-do_n_712518.html
The upside is that I think it is obvious that Kate is undermining her children's relationship with their father. She is such a boil on the backside of humanity.
This must be Kate, desperate to drum up interest and save her failing TV show. How could she say this really?, Even if it was completely true, what is the chance that her kids will be asked about this by others. It has got to be 100%, especially the twins by their friends. I just hope Jon continues to rise above this and not react. It is to his advantage that Kate did this publicly. No family court judge would look the other way at this when deciding custody.

Kk said...

I watched a video play-back of her stint on tv today, and I think what she was alluding to when she said "we have only been doing this for three months" is, the original custody agreement fell apart 3 mos ago and that is when Jon was no longer allowed on the property to see the kids in THEIR house.

Of course, it'd be quite easy to make it easier on the kids: RETURN TO THE ORIGINAL AGREEMENT, with Jon caring for the children in THEIR house when it is his turn.

How K8 can possibly say with a straight face that "it is hard on the kids not to be in their own house with their own things", and then not do anything to alleviate that stress for her children, is beyond comprehension. It is certainly no wonder that the children are conflicted, upset, and do not in all likelihood know where their loyalties are supposed to lie.

mama mia said... And now it is official, Kate hates her Ex far more than she loves her children.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Great minds think alike, I have been saying that too. she also hates Jon more than she wants a 'career', THAT stunt was not a positve career move. At all. For cryin' out loud, directors have thrown Megan Fox to the curb because of her whining to the media. This crap just shows to the world how very difficult Katie would be to work with in a professional setting.

Jon gets the brunt of this, but I still say her rage runs a lot deeper than just her ex husband.

And when she cant get attention for herself any other way, she will start playing her own childhood sob story, cash only please.

Anonymous said...

Didn't watch the show because she was on it and don't want to fuel the ratings or her ego, but reading the comments of what transpired I had to respond.

My first instinct was for Ellen to fight back as was noted...but after reading the comments I have to agree...take the high road here its the smart road and right strategy...Kate sounds like she's back to purposefully provoking and trying to antagonize...and if Jon or Ellen take the bait, well then more publicity and limelight for Khate...let's face it, controversy sells and that's what pathological liar is trying to provoke. Avoiding controversy by not responding like Ellen and Jon are doing is really the correct response here. Stay strong Ellen and Jon...the truth will win out!...patience will win the day. Khate and TLC are self destructing.

The other point I want to make is that I agree with the commenter who framed it that how sick is it that the kids biological father can't speak up for his kids or defend himself. How in gawd's name in this country can a corporation have more control and say over his own kids than he does, Wow, just wow. How sad is that.

wryview said...

"Having their father in their lives is very different for them because it's so new to them". Did she REALLY say THAT? Really? Anyone who ever saw any episode of the show knows that isn't true. Jon dressed the kids. Jon fed the kids. Jon played with the kids. Jon took care of boo-boos and illnesses. It's new to them? On what planet?

Wryview said...

Oh - and if she's so concerned about the kids playing at their own house with their own toys, then perhaps she shouldn't have dragged them all over the country for the entire summer.

&&&&&&&&&
We also have proof on this blog IN PHOTO AFTER PHOTO Jon has maintained regular, consistent, positive visitation. Who was staying with the kids for the three weeks Kate was screwing around in LA practicing for DWTS before the season started? Oh right, Jon was!

Administrator said...

I'm going to do a post on all of Jon's visitation when I get the time.

Administrator said...

If someone wants to help me out with a post I could use it.

I don't usually ask for help but I just have no time for this, work is crazy and this weekend is crazy (in a good way!)

I need someone to go through every archived post on this blog (posts are at right) to find every post I ever did about Jon visiting the kids or spending time with them, including bus stop pickups, etc. I did lots of them with pics. Then just list every link to the post in order and send them to me. Make sure it's a link to the actual post, you have to click on the title to get the link.

Kate needs to be proven wrong that Jon is not in their lives. Bullshit.

Let me know if anyone is up to the challenge. I'd love this to be done by Sat morning.

Administrator said...

Even though I have nothing against child support in general, it really speaks to Kate's greed and also her vindictiveness.

She really doesn't NEED child support, it's been well documented how much she makes off each episode. She really needs more money for the kids??? She can't support her own kids until they are 18 on 250k an episode?? Not to mention money from the Emmys, DWTS, etc. Seriously do the kids need one more baby Gap tshirt? She wants to just suck Jon dry with her greed for the almighty dollar.

I think Kate should provide documentation that not only does she spend every dime of that support on the kids, but proof that Jon owes arrears. Bet she can't do that.

Wow. Just saw a minute or two of this fiasco on youtube. The snide remarks, the smirking - it made me hate you all the more and I hated you already. I can't imagine the impression it made on those who had no clue who you are or who were on the fence regarding your bad press of late. It sure won't turn anyone to your side or prolong your fading stardom, if that's what you thought to accomplish. This was an EXTREMELY BAD move, Kate.

Okay, so in other words, the kids like being home because they only like Kate's cooking (i.e. craft services or 4 triscuits, 3 slices of cheese and 5 grapes on a plate), they only like it when Kate plays with them in the yard (i.e. when Kate goes on a Target, pedi, ups run) and they only like Kate to read them bedtime stories when they go to bed at night (i.e. "Ashley, come deal with this child!!")

Liar, Liar, pants on Fire said...

I watched that video on HP. The Regis and Kelly show should be ashamed of themselves for letting her come on there and lie like that. She was squirming in her chair and her hands were flying more the bigger the lie got. That was just sickening. I am going right now to ABC and let them know how I feel about their stupidity. They are still stuck in the time zone where they think KG brings ratings. No more. She has barely a million watching her show. That is peanuts in the industry. Next they should do their homework -- they were fed those questions that they asked. It was a set up and apparently and hopefully R&G were the only ones dumb enough to fall for it.

Did you mean here, A&K, Anderson and Kelly? Funny, Bonnie paints it as if Anderson and Kelly were aghast. Truthfully, I didn't notice..I couldn't take my ears or eyes off that lying "sack o'sheep". I know that was a last min. setup, I bet Khate asked for it too. No pics, no big headlines about her being on, even the sheeple were caught off guard. They thought it a rerun til the last sec.

LisaNH said...

I cannot think of anyone who deserves less success in life than Hate. She really is a parasite on society. She does nothing for anyone except herself. I keep thinking about how much she could do and how much of an example for her children she could be if she did something good for someone else for a change. With her fame she could do so much for so many worthwhile causes.

But no, instead, what she is teaching her children is "keep it all for yourself. Never share, never try to help others who are not as lucky as we are.

Instead, she is teaching her children what it is like to be greedy and self centered. How sad for these children.

emschick1128 said...

Bonnie Fuller who usually supports Kate wrote a very negative article slamming her for trashing Jon on national tv. I don't know why she was even given any air time to begin with and why she was even there. Once again though she just made herself look bad. You just don't do that when kids are involved. She is a horrible person.

Katelyn said...

I am torn between 2 thoughts here:

1. That Kate's stint on Regis & Kelly was a way for TLC to throw Kate under the bus as part of a campaign to ease her off their channel.

2. Or TLC thought further insane antics from Kate would draw ratings for Monday's show.

Karen said...

Who is paying for those stupid articles calling Kate G a "hot babe?" They must be delusional, too. Kind of like putting lipstick on a pig to me. The lies just keep coming. I'm voting with my remote.

dee3 said...

I tend to agree with IModo....that Jon may be pursuing a different custody arrangement...and that TLC is frantic about the information that could come out during this....if it's a no-holds-barred effort by Jon.
It doesn't really make sense that TLC would be frantic about losing the children, considering the tanking ratings.
But lots of things they don't want to get out? Absolutely. They could probably end up in jail if some of the things they did or participated in were to get out.
And while we don't know what tactics or threats TLC has used to muzzle Jon....one place he CAN freely speak the truth and his mind....would be a court of law. TLC has no jurisdiction over that.

My gut feeling also is that he finally hooked up with a woman who has sense and wisdom....and he is actually listening to her. He now seems to be doing and behaving exactly as we wanted to see him do.
I would think that showing a judge a tape of what Kate said on R&K could go a far way in convincing a judge that Jon is the better parent by far.

Hippie Chick said...

@Katelyn, never thought of it that way. (TLC throwing Kate under the bus) Good thought. Hope it's true! Kate's so wrapped up in her own world, she wouldn't even notice.

Bonafide Nutcase said...

Kate said during the interview that she goes and gets the kids if they want to go home.
If that were the case, why wouldn't she contact her personal pap and have him get that in pics or on video so she'd have backup? Either she doesn't have a pap at her back and call, or she's dumber than I thought for not having herself photographed when "rescuing the kids" from their dad.... or she's outright lying on TV for all the world to see. I vote for her being a liar.

Bubbles said...

We've never seen Jon return any less children than he took with him. There have been times when the twins weren't with him, but they didn't go with him to begin with, and I don't think we've ever seen any of the sextuplets separated from the others.

Anonymous said...

SHOCKING absolutely shocking. If Jon were to have said half of the insane crap she said on Regis and Kelly the lawyers as well as TLC would be sitting on his front step waiting to serve him with some sort of law suit. I can NOT STAND KHATE. She is evil, she is maniacal the every popular narcissist and a pathological liar. The look on Anderson and Kelly's face when she was spewing her venom was priceless. If they dont already her kids are going to hate her big time. When they are old enough to go on line and read all the shi t she has said and done to and about their father.. WOW. Now that is a show Id watch.. Sad but true.

Anonymous said...

Watching the video above just shows the level of what a horrible mother Kate actually is. First of all WHY THE HELL did she not let Jon drive the van into the driveway AWAY from paps? Second she didnt even come down to get the van. But it was left there waiting for her skany self all the while the paps are taping away.. SHE should be ashamed of herself. HOW DARE HER.. She infuriates me.

Tanya said...

I think after the video came out where they were screaming to stay with Jon Kate felt the need to set the record straight so she lied. I feel so sorry for these kids. Kate has to be brainwashing them like she's trying to brainwash the public. The kids must feel so torn with Kate laying guilt trips on them. As a child of divorce I can promise Kate one thing. This will backfire on her someday. As they get older they will demand to spend more time with their father whom their mother has downgraded and tried to turn them against all along. She truly makes me ill.

Administrator said...

If this is what Kate is saying to the public I cannot imagine what she is spewing to the kids about their dad behind closed doors.

Some of the kids will buy her lies and will band against Jon. For some it will backfire and they will end up siding with Jon more. For a precious few it's possible it won't matter either way.

Linda said...

Kate,

You don't know me, but I've seen and heard enough of you that I have a few things to say:

1. You are not a single mom. You are a divorced mom, co-parenting your eight kids with their dad, who is very much in their lives. Every time you call yourself a single mom, you are lying and insulting all those single parents out there who really ARE raising their kids totally on their own.

2. You didn't hurt Jon with your ugly comments today. He knows more than most people how horrible you are and expects nothing better from you. But you did hurt your kids. My mom used to bash my dad, too. It broke our hearts every time. And your kids are EXTRA lucky: your bashing of their dad is done on national TV and recorded for all of posterity! It's obvious you don't give a shit about those kids or how they feel or you would never do that to them. Trust me: it HURTS.

3. Please seek counseling. It's not normal or healthy when someone is as obsessed with themselves as you are. There's help out there. Get it.

4. Jon is doing the smartest thing he can possibly do: he's keeping his head low and his nose clean. He's not clamoring for attention and desperately trying to hold onto the limelight. He's just living his life, not saying a thing, and doing what he needs to do to survive co-parenting with a nightmare like you. You need to realize that the more you bash him and the more he stays quiet, the worse YOU look. Sympathy for Jon is higher than I've seen it since he was on the show and getting browbeaten and humiliated by you on a regular basis. You don't look like a victim. You look like a bully and an asshole.

5. Your time in the spotlight is ending. I don't know if you can see it, but the public has a better, longer view. We've seen this coming for a while. With no discernible talent, your horrible personality, the kids getting older and the show going off the rails, it was inevitable. Have you even thought of what that will be like? No show, no checks, no interviews, no shots on dancing shows, no nothing.

And once you are out of the public eye, getting back in it is near impossible short of being arrested or hospitalized and even then, you just might rate a little "where are they now?" blurb.

6. People aren't going to jump to give you a job once you blow through all that money, which you seem to be doing at a stupendous rate. Even child support doesn't last forever. In your case, it will last another 12 years. That may seem like a long time, but it's really not. Might want to do some planning. And less tanning.

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kat said...

Well, if TLC and Kate wanted to get people talking about her, they sure have succeeded.

BUT, there is an added bonus involved:

Her over-exposure has made people curious about her, but once they discover about her "shady" history, she has ended up more haters than fans. Kate, you're a joke and a fraud!!

No matter what you say, or do Kate- your show is still going down the crapper. A fact is a fact. Now how about being a REAL mother to your children, and GET THEM & YOURSELF OFF T.V.

Meanwhile for the rest of us:

If you notice, every single time Jon reveals a little bit about Kate's parenting, Kate ends up on a talk show to retaliate.

This little bit of info came out about Jon's book coming out ( Kate was asked about it at the Emmy's, and then Hailey opened her pie hole about Jon extorting Kate ), and poof! Now Kate is on another talk show to bad mouth him.

If she were not allowed to bash Jon on Regis and Kelly today, seriously, what would they have had to talk about for 5 minutes? She had absolutely nothing to contribute to a conversation/interview, so she steamrolled Jon to keep the conversation going. Otherwise everyone would've just sat there and looked at each other.

Poor Jon. I know he's made mistakes, but he sure didn't deserve that today. I cannot wait for karma to bite Kate's tanned and toned ass.

Can't believe my ears said...

You know who she should be taking a leson from...Tiger Woods ex wife...That woman kept her private life to herself as well as her kids and only gave one..count em ..one interview with People Magazine and never another to any other news station or talk show. Elin has class and has proven to move on with her life and keep her kids lives private and safe. This twit has to blab all sorts of lies on National tv about her kids and her ex...such trailer trash garbage that spews out of her mouth that it makes me sick. If I were one of her twins I'd be ashamed of her..Their friends and families all know and these kids will never be able to move on cause this twit doesn't know how to shut her trap and stop with the lying...Don't watch her stupid show and hopefully this twit will fade fast....

Liar, Liar, pants on Fire said...

I think I figured it out - remember when someone (wonder who that could have possibly been:) tried to fan the flames and say on one of the boards that Khatan did things like that just to p** us off? That was it - she threw the father of her kids under the bus just to light up the boards. I think she needs that 90% that doesn't like her to start watching again.

Must Love Dogs said...

What was the purpose of this woman going on Regis and Kelly today? To make everyone feel sorry for her! Puleeezzzz we have heard enough of her cry story to last a life time. I didn't watch but what I have read she better get a new PR team cause this one isn't working out for her anymore. She has nothing new to say except the same ole bull crap and America is tired of her. At least I am...get a new life Kate and move on woman!

wayward said...

Just throwing this out there.... could Jon possibly be testifying at Rep. Murt's upcoming hearing? Or was all testimony over & done with at the spring hearing? I'm a PA resident, but my 9th grade PA civics class was a looong time ago:) I don't recall how the process works.

Canuck said...

IDModo - I totally agree. I think this is the perfect time for Jon (and Ellen) to sit tight, behave themselves, do not respond or reciprocate to Kate's obvious dishonesty. Anyone with half a brain can see that these constant attacks, innuendo, sly comments, jabs, pokes, not to mention OUTRIGHT LIES against the father of those children, is abusive. Nothing else to call it. She is a very immature woman with the depth of an earthworm. She will hang herself...wait and see. Jon - either recruit yourself some legitimate assistance (I thought the Paul Petersen/Allred suggestion was a good one) or do nothing for the time being. I feel strongly that Kate's day of reckoning is close...and she has only herself to blame. She has always been master of what will ultimately be her destiny...irrelevance and obscurity.

Nancy said...

How on earth do these poor kids face their friends everyday at school with such and unbalanced crazy mother running around spewing garbage to anyone who will listen????

Liisa said...

What a thoroughly disgusting human being Kate is. Where did this little, meek voice come from that we hear in interviews? Those of us who watched her nag and verbally abuse Jon for years know that her voice is shrill, annoying, not unlike an air horn. If I hear her throw Jon under the bus one more time I'm really going to lose it. She wants to play like her kids have an uninvolved, disinterested father? She needs to come and live my life, dealing with my daughters dad, and see what a real deadbeat dad is like. Jon Gosselin is a lot of things, but deadbeat dad and uninvolved father he is NOT! Kate is an embarrassment to us truly single mothers (she's not a single mom, she's a DIVORCED mom) who struggle every day to get by with no help from a man. She's got all the help she needs, and then some. Get off it Kate. We're not buying it.

Jackie R said...

I can't imagine that a gag order or contract clause that would be enforceable that would prevent Jon from simply saying, "I pay substantial child support monthly and up to date on my payments. I have regularly spent time with my children since our divorce and would like to spend even more time with them. I don't wish to comment further because I have made the mistake in the past of talking too much to the press. It is not in my best interest or in the interests of my children."

Naomi said...

I just saw the Anderson and Kelly clip on radar. BARF!!! Kate is sick in the head.

emschick1128 said...

Why is she even on Regis and Kelly?? She never ceases to amaze me at what a low life she is. Of course she's telling all lies but even if she wasn't, he's still her kids father and she should not be bashing him publicly. Kelly has 3 kids, I can only imagine what she thinks of Kate. I just don't get why they keep giving her airtime?

Liar, Liar, pants on Fire said...

We know that Jon is paying his child support because he is not in jail. She told him when it was brought up once that he would go to jail if he did not pay. He signed the contract with TLC to be silent soon thereafter.

What was she supposed to promoting?

Whatevah said...

I just saw the story hit ROL. The 'haterz' keep posting and someone keeps responding "go to the imdb board". To be honest? I think ALL comments should just stop. The more the 'haterz' post, the better she looks and the happier ROL/TLC are because they think it proves Kate is still 'newsworthy'. I really wish people would not post on those stories. It's up to us to prove she is irrelevant by the "Silence Is Golden" rule.

K8SUCKS said...

I am so glad I didn't watch this garbage - I think I would have thrown a brick at the tv.

I'm sure Anderson had to bite his tongue to not take K8 to the cleaners.

The woman has not an ounce of class. She's trash in dress, attitude, and spirit.

Call Me Crazy said...

From reading all the posts, it would seem that TLC and Kate have accomplished the desired effect of getting people all worked up into a frenzy of anger about her lying. They are, of course, hoping Kate's media stunt today will translate into people tuning back into the show on Monday.

I really hope people will be even more adamant about not turning the show on, even for a "few minutes" or while "flicking channels."

The greatest power we have is to vote with our remote and refuse to watch. TLC ultimately has to answer to its sponsors, so without the numbers, the sponsors will drop like flies.

I know there are people who just can't help but watch, but it would be awesome if everyone could show restraint just this one Monday to send TLC a very loud and clear message. They are on the ropes. We can deliver the final knockout punch by letting them know we are not falling for their stunts. We can help those children get their private lives back.

cathy518 said...

Kate's shinny pants are on fire! What I am most curious about here is the timing of all of this. When that video of Jon dropping his sobbing kids off at the orphanage, the main stream media ignored it completely. No one picked it up and only the bloggers seemed to see it.(being the most intelligent of groups) So it kind of went away and it was the most damaging video I could ever imagine for Kate, and we all know there are so many to chose from. So weeks after, Kate goes on a talk show and makes statements that are sure to bring up that van. Is she deliberately trying to provoke her detractors so that they will tune in again? Speaking for myself, I did not watch this morning and will never watch her on anything.
Star magazine has the story already too, of how the kids don't want to be with Jon.
