New nanny is Kate look-alike

http://www.infdaily.com/2010/09/the-gosselin-kids-get-picked-up-by-the-nanny.html

The kids were spotted Thursday at the bus stop with the new nanny. The nanny is a younger, shorter (and nicer, we hope) version of Kate, with blonde hair, big sunglasses, and similar features to their Mommy Dearest.

Is it Kate's sister?

JudyK said...

To me, it looks like Ashley made up to look like Kate. Is there a "new" Nanny?

LisaNH said...

Wow, I would have thought it was Kate too if I hadn't read the caption. She dresses like her too.

But wait, I thought Kate was all about the kids? Isn't everything she does for them, like being there to take them to and pick them up from the bus? And doesn't she love to hear about their day at school as they all sit down and have a nice organic dinner together? (Sorry, went into fantasy land there for a minute).

Why do I have a feeling that now that these pics have been show, Kate will show up in a few days like on the Rivera or in Hawaii?

Moi said...

Notice that tattoo's on her back? Yuck!

She looks a LOT like Kate. Except she weighs about fifty pounds more.

I think Kate likes to surround herself with heavy people because it make her look thin!

PatE said...

LisaNH, maybe Kate is stalking Gina....LOL.

I think Kate is desperately looking for a new boyfriend is because Steve is not leaving Gina.

Kate will probably get some men interested in small children to come around...poor kids.

Sheri said...

Maybe Kate is at home with the covers pulled over her head!! I bet she hasn't had a minutes sleep since the public found out there are no more episodes in the can and Twist of Kate is not happening. Too bad!! Time to face REALITY girl, your 15 are finally up. TA TA..

PJ's momma said...

C'mon guys, we all snark on Kate, but let's not be mean to the nanny. She's just doing her job and is probably a very nice girl. Actually, she's doing Kate's job, but that's beside the point.

Anyone seen the new People? I'm curious whether the letters section was filled with outrage at Kate on yet another cover. If someone's seen it, fill us in! I saw last week's copy at the gym today and if I'd had a pen, I would have drawn devil horns on her.

Markiesnana said...

That's a Mommy stand in; because Kate thinks that her life is a movie.

My hubby's best friend's wife has always done this!!! Funny.

I like the tattoo, and she's definitely not overweight.

Jamie looks a lot like Kate too, and even dressed the same. Now this nanny (or whoever she is) looks a lot like Kate.

A Kate stand-in perhaps? Jamie when they were filming, this woman when the kids do regular things? It keeps the kids in the limelight, keeps the Gosselin name out there, and Kate can go shop for shoes when Chris thinks she's picking up the kids.

No, I think I know what it really is. The kids have been told that if a lady shows up with bleach blond hair and her shirt down to her navel, it's probably that woman called Mommy. Or close enough. Go with her and try to look like it's not the end of the world. She has 12 grapes waiting at home for you to share.

Dannie Darko said...

Very odd that the nanny chooses to look like her employer, how very white single female of her.

fidosmommy said...

Has anybody seen the real Kate in the last day or two? Maybe she's guarding Steve on that anniversary vacation he's taking with his wife.

AuntieAnn said...

Naaah. It's Kate disguised as the nanny.

Midnight Madness said...

Other than having blond hair, I don't see much of a similarity. This girl is heavier, much younger, and wears a skirt down to her ankles. It could be this nanny looks like, well, like herself! Kate has never dressed like that. If she wanted to be a Kate look-alike, wouldn't she have shown up in white shorts, or a denim skirt with hooker heels?

BerksPa said...

Seriously, why is this even newsworthy? Why does INF even bother taking pictures. The kids are at least being watched by an adult probably more involved in their lives now than Kate.

I do think, tho, Kate is out filming for her show. Good for her, as long as those kiddos are kept off the tv.

Administrator said...

Kate could be out filming. Or he could be on shutter island rocking back and forth because Steve won't leave his wife and has gone off to Europe to reconcile with her, and Kate Plus 8 is cancelled and Kate knows it.

Barbara said...

I believe this is Chris, Kate's sister. When she was on DWTS she claimed Chris was with the kids. Besides, she looks too much like Kate to not be her sister.

And yeah, she is a little plump.

Barbara said...

I forgot to say that I have seen a photo of Clarissa, her youngest sister and they don't really look alike. Her older sister Kendra is married with children. So she would not likely be staying with the kids when she has her own to care for. Chris is the single one.

Merette said...

That's another one of the zillion "nannies" aka babysitters Take has hired. She fires them as fast she she hires them. This is not Kate nor her sisters as some people have commented on other blogs I have read. This is just another young babysitter taking the kids to the bus stop. I agree with the person who said Take may be in bed with the covers pulled over her head. I also think there are several empty boxes of wine close by.

BeDoneNow said...

With INF saying this gal looks like Kate, they probably just cost her her job. Kate wont like that!

Yeah yeah, I am just being snarky. Who cares how a nanny wears her hair and dresses? Please. INF is just pissed coz they DID think it was Kate, and got snookered.

The sheeple comments on INF are kind of creepy.

I was thinking how "All About Eve" of her LOL.

I'm thinking it's Jamie, the person Kate says has been her bff for the last 9 years and who spent a lot of time with the kids this summer. She and Kate look quite similar with Jamie somewhat shorter and heavier than Kate.

Bubbles said...

I've missed something along the way - Steve is in Europe with his wife? How do we know this?

jibberjabbers said...

It is not Jamie. Jamie is 40+ years old people. Jamie was also married to Mark Ayers. They divorced in July 08.

That nanny looks to be in the early to mid 20's.

This is Jamie. Jamie and Kate snuggle

mama mia said...

OT but I am still laughing at one of the comments someone made about Kate trying to do the jive with Tony - "It looked like Tony was struggling to get a bag of potatoes into a shopping cart". That image of him trying to pull her through his legs is hilarious, her best tv moment ever.

Vanessa said...

At least this girl is dressing her age, you can get away with that sort of stuff being a teen/young adult. I could seriously see Kate wearing the same outfit, oh wait...it doesn't show off the legs and hooker shoes...never mind.

Markiesnana said...

Maybe she went to Europe.

Gimme Gimme said...

I have seen it all now. I think a double has been discussed before. In the van you would not know the difference. Clearly this girl was hired because she looks like Khate and dresses like Khate. If she hired a new one that means someone quit or got fired. Can you imagine working for that woman? Now the kids have to get used to someone new. Poor kids. Maybe Khate went to Italy with Steve and Gina since they are such close friends and all.

Gimme Gimme said...

Jamie is short and has really big boobs.

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

I think mail for Kate's issue will run in the letters section 2 or 3 issues from now. If you want outrage, though, check out the comments section on People's website. I lost count of the number of times readers threatened to cancel their subscriptions if Katezilla was on the cover one more time.

JenK said...

I was thinking about this new nanny. If the rumor that Jon won't sign a new contract is true and TLC has no current contract with Kate anymore as a result, it's possible this nanny is new because she's not on the TLC payroll like the other nannies and Steve. Maybe their absence is confirmation of the lack of a contract? Because if I remember correctly, TLC was paying for the nannies and Steve and that she negotiated some extreme nanny hours into her more recent contracts. Maybe this new one is one being paid by Kate directly now?

Here's a thought said...

Maybe Steve and Kate sneaked off, got married and are honeymooning in Europe.

Sheri said...

The Futon Critic website has Kate Plus Eight listed as, "On Hiatus or Yet to be Determined" I sure hope that means the show is finally a WRAP! Is this too good to be true? Will Kate finally have to PAY for nannies, maids and babysitters? Not mentioning, hair, makeup, tanning, mani-pedis, free trips, bodyguards, limos, cars, washers and dryers, food. How on Earth will she make it? Do you think she might have to actually WORK for a living?

Because blogs like this talk about every pic endlessly and give INF hits. Pretty simple.

Midnight Madness said...

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

When has Kate, in recent times, ever covered her body with a long dress?

Merette said...

This nanny is not any of Take's sisters. Clairissa is short and fat, Kendra is over 40 and she's a chubette, too. Christen is in her late 30's and a chubette and lives in the Toledo, Oh area with her husband and several kids. This nanny is clearly a young girl in her 20's. She may look like Take at first glance, but she is too heavy and has a huge tatoo on her back. Gross!

JudyK said...

Need to read the new comments, so hope I'm not repeating and am in a hurry because I'm cooking, but I browsed the NEW PEOPLE at the grocery store--not ONE COMMENT about Kate--not one. That's impossible as controversial as she is, so I think all the comments were negative and they chose not to publish anything. Just my opinion.

They wouldn't appear yet -- it's too early. Check next month's or better yet, go to People online and read all of the negatives there.

TLC is paying for the nannies? That's a new one. I've never seen or heard of this until you wrote it today. Maybe they pay for childcare when they're filming but we don't know who pays for them the rest of the time.

As for TLC paying for Steve - initially, Steve was hired by TLC - Jon has commented on this. We have no information about who is paying for him and what the terms are for his employee now, however. It's possible that when Kate is filming for TLC, they pay for him and when she's on her own and traveling for some other reason - like maybe the recent People mag cover - she is responsible - or maybe they're footing the bill for him completely. We simply don't know.

I respect this blog for trying to stick to verifiable information - TLC paying for the nannies and steve is inaccurate.

Do some people not know how to provide a link? I've gone to People, I can't find the comments.

fidosmommy said...

In the "notes" from Jon (another thread) wasn't there something jotted down about nannies 24/7
in their negotiations? I thought the nannies were an agreement between Jon and Kate on their personal dimes.

I guess some people know that it's not rocket science and aren't always on that page when they post here. It's actually not difficult to find.

1. You go to People online, in the search box at the top right, you type Kate Gosselin.
2. On the next page, you click on the first link "I'm in the Best Shape"
3. On the next page, you click on comments (it's in blue font).
4. On the next page, scroll to the bottom of that page for the comments.


On second thought...here:

http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20425904,00.html#facebook_comment

You will see the cover shot of Kate at the top of the page. Scroll nearly to the bottom and the comments are there.

I can't fathom hiring a "nanny" one day and leaving town with a new nanny in charge so soon thereafter. I doubt there is a local nanny service where they have been checked out and have references in dealing with kids and none could reference dealing with that many. Most of them are very young - look at the responsibiity she put on Ashley when she was only a teenager. I used to baby sit for 2 as a teenager and I dreaded it because as soon as their parents left they would come unglued and it was not an easy task. I had to keep them fully engaged with fun activities the entire time to keep them from literally climbing the walls and walking the ceiling. The extremes of her parenting are becoming more and more bothersome the older the kids get. A sad commentary for the kids. I feel so sorry for them. And I hate that she pulled the wool over people's eyes for so long with that of goods consisting of this organized hands on Mom that lived and breathed for her kids. It was all a lie. She is a hands on mom alright but not for all the right reasons.

I figure Jon was either asking to justify the need or he was in fact stating they need them because he knows that Khate doesn't look after them. She never looked after the kids when they were together. She kept them in their cribs or rooms for long, long naps until Jon came home dancing at the door when she saw him coming. They actually showed footage of the supposed naps and they were not sleeping at all but playing very quietly. The way she looks after them on film one can only surmise that she is even worse when alone with them and that they are pretty much on their own. There used to be a clip on You Tube of Khate and the kids gathered around the refrigerator and you could see that they were all hungry, trying to peer around her and she took her time totally ignoring them and came out with some little something. She finally acknowledged them by snapping Joel's head back when she slapped him on the head for some unknown reason I guess for getting in her space. It was very disturbing. I would not leave my cat alone with that woman much less my children. She plays mind games and that is sick.

Lesley said...

Well, that's okay, I guess. As long as she's not also a Kate act-alike.

carolina peach said...

Does the 'dress code' to care for her kids state that your 'busoms' and cleavage MUST be showing? Oh, and you must, when a camera is around, lean over?

Where is the modesty with these women?
