Kate spotted at the dry cleaners

Looks like Kate has pulled the heels back out of retirement. We all knew that wouldn't last long. Like the sensible sweater.

I thought you weren't supposed to wear white shoes after Labor Day?

I would love to know what is written on the tag on the basket she is carrying. That is an awfully large basket for a few pieces of clothes.

And did she do something to her teeth? Looks like her veneers are smaller. Did she get them taken off?

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

She looks good, except for those fugly shoes.

She answers to stumpy said...

How odd, carrying in that big basket into the cleaners with just a couple of items in it. Why didn't she just throw them over her arm instead of wrestling with the basket while her one hand is full of keys, phone, etc.? Oh well, why does she do anything the way she does?

Hippie Chick said...

Does she EVER read InStyle? The outfit just doesn't...mesh. I don't know. She's hopeless when it comes to her clothes & the craptastic outfits she throws together.

livvy said...

Staged!!!! The only time K's hair looks good is if someone else is blowing it out for her. Otherwise, its natty, ratty, pulled back and stuffed up.

boo said...

Has it really come to this -- that this nobody taking her clothes to the cleaners is news? Pathetic.

Kelly said...

Where does she buy her shoes, at a funeral home?

Anan22 said...

Those photos clearly show how much fuller she has gotten around her mouth.

I guess she finally called Chris....and I see her two little diamonds still on her neck, Steve and Jamie, how sweet. Just like high school.

BerksPa said...

I think she finally looks a bit normally dressed (from the ankles up) Those shoes have GOT to go.

SchmeckyGirl said...

INFdaily had to say this about the card on the basket:

Kate’s wicker basket had a very polite note attached which read “ITEMS IN WHITE CLOTH BAG: DRY CLEAN PLEASE” and “ITEMS LOOSE IN BASKET: PRESS ONLY: NO STARCH” finished with “THANKS.” We can’t complain; it’s both efficient and polite!

Reality Bites said...

Close up photo of note attached to basket reveals laundry instructions. Nice work Chris (INF)! LOL!

Lauren said...

It looks like she got her busted weave trimmed and her roots done.

Those shoes are skanktastic. They are worse than the hooker heels she wore with the satin short outfit. Very, very bad taste.

She looks like a little girl playing dress up and she doesn't know how to put an outfit together so she ends up looking ridiculous. I'm sure the kids are embarassed of her.

mamamia said...

INF has a close-up of the tag. It says: "Items in white cloth bag dry clean please. Items loose in basket press only: no starch"

Now, please tell me, is it a custom in the northeast to lug an entire laundry hamper to the dry cleaners? I'm in Florida, and we just put our stuff in a bag, bring it to the store and tell the clerk in person what we need...they then sort the clothing into dry clean and laundry piles themselves. Just thought this was a strange and needlessly cumbersome way to bring your clothes to the dry cleaners.

The shoes are ridiculous. Inf says she's trying to match them to her laundry basket, lol!

http://www.infdaily.com/2010/10/kate-gosselin-matches-shoes-to-laundry-basket.html

Ingrid said...

The tag is directions This is the most I could read:

______ __ ____ Cloth bag
dry clean please
____ _______ __ basket
________ only no starch
thanks

Anon 1 said...

Who wears white shoes at this time of year? As usual, they're butt ugly. Of course Kate thinks she's a hottie.

Laura D. said...

So much for "Team Damage Control." Are those the hooker heals she bought during the back-to-school episode? And who brings a huge wicker basket to the dry cleaners with just a couple of items in it?

Linda said...

HA! A few things:

white shoes after Labor Day, my dear

what's written on that tag in the basket?

her hair? Looks like CRAP. I can't believe it costs that much.

she looks like a miserable, miserable person. Of course she is.

But most of all:

why is she driving the huge van? Are the kids inside?

While I can't read the whole thing, it says on the top half, "....clothes..Dry clean only" I can't read the bottom half of the tag, plus it's upside down. You can enlarge the screen by using the control key and the plus sign...to minimize it, same, only Ctrl and minus sign.

Westcoaster said...

Who was that smiling woman? - maybe she really did get the "memo". And yes, those shoes are a) awful and b) look stupid considering the time of year. Another orchestrated outing, guess she and purseboy are not so 'one with each other' these days.

carolina peach said...

sheesh and all this time, I thought spanx went UNDER your clothes. Silly me. I'd be smiling, too if I could afford to take and pick up dry cleaning that will fit in a huge basket. $$$$$$. Wait a minute, is this service free, too? Oh, that explains the big old smile.
me-ow.

MickeyMcKean said...

TO: Chris the Pap

Thank you for taking the time to follow Kate and take these photos - no matter what happens in my life today, at least I know that Kate went to a dry cleaners in PA this week.

However, please note that it would be very much appreciated if you can follow Kate and find some glimmer of hope that she is not only going to remember that her twin girls have a birthday this coming weekend, but that Kate is actually planning to celebrate their big day even if TLC is not picking up the tab for a special televised trip for Mady and Cara.

Seriously Chris, can you find some photographic evidence that Kate is making an effort to plan something extra special for Mady and Cara even if Kate has to pay for it out of her own pocket?

After all everyone is aware thanks to the Kate+8 episode that the twins felt shafted just in May when the six pack got three (3) birthday parties in two (2) different states over a period of seven (7) days, and yet as Mady pointed out they only get one (1) party.

Payson48 said...

OH CHRIS!!!!! I'm going to lunch and then the grocery store---WILL YOU TAKE MY PICTURE TOO?

NT said...

The second sentence on that tag on the basket says dry clean please. Can't make out the rest. I have to admit that she does look good but a cute pair of ankle boots would have looked better.She needs to retire the white heels till next summer. IMO

JurseyChic24 said...

How odd. First, the heels are horrible, white or otherwise. Second, why is she using a basket to transport not a lot of clothes? It looks like there's 3 or 4 items in that basket. Jonesing for a picture and some attention is my bet.

Betsy said...

Why does she ruin the whole outfit by adding them ugly heels to everything?!?

emschick1128 said...

I think Kate looks rather worn out. I'm sure she's crying buckets over her canceled show and her "career" being all but over. Those shoes with the skinny jeans and sweater look ridiculous. Maybe they would look nice with a spring or summer dress at a wedding but certainly not with that combo in October.

Hippie Chick said...

http://perezhilton.com/2010-10-05-kate_plus_eight_missing_from_tlc_schedule

Don't let the door hit ya, Kate.

PA Mom ALSO said...

It was chilly here yesterday (50 degrees) with a steady rain all day. I cannot imagine anyone trying to run errands in those shoes, with slippery wet streets and sidewalks, not to mention the puddles! She's nuts.

Jaye said...

My weekly snark:

She has the absolute worst taste in shoes. I imagine some day she will look back on this season of her life and think, "WTF was I thinking? Why didn't someone slap me upside the head for that?"

The extentions need to go. They have worn out their welcome. Her hair is long enough now for a cute, natural bob which she can keep growing to her liking. But the weave is just...gross. Tired of looking at it. It isn't doing her any favors. Makes her look cheap and low class. Like she tries way too hard.

She looks well beyond 35. I don't know if having 8 kids ages you faster, but she can easily pass for 45.

If she never put her life on a reality show, I wouldn't know her from Adam and wouldn't care to comment about her. Wouldn't even think twice about her if I were standing right beside her. ( Well, I WOULD think she was a little hoochie'ish, but I would only think it, not say it ).

AuntieAnn said...

Only Kate Gosselin glams up to go to the cleaners but in her mind she probably considers it a photo shoot. She must have more shoes than Imelda Marcos by now.

She's starting to look older than her years in some of those pics.

Jaye said...

The note says: "Do not use wire hangars! If you do, you will be punished under penalty of severeness! And there better not be any DIRT on these clothes, as I will be doing the white glove test when I come to retrieve them. Thank you ".

kat said...
And did she do something to her teeth? Looks like her veneers are smaller. Did she get them taken off?

my God that woman loves to pretend she's a diva.

Side note: Schmeckygirl. If you would post ONLY here, certain other blogs would FAIL due to lack of anything interesting to talk about. Take the hint: you are the one keeping things exciting over there. Knock it off! LOL

Perez has a point....
Kate Gosselin Still MIA
Filed under: The Gosselins
If she hasn't been cancelled, then where the hell is she???
We reported several weeks ago a rumor we'd heard that Kate Gosselin's new show on TLC, Kate Plus 8 was getting the boot due to poor ratings and lacking the amount of scandal now being generated by Sister Wives.
We were quickly corrected and told that the show was no cancelled, nor did TLC have plans to cancel it.
Okay, well then our question is - why isn't it on the air????
If you check the online official schedule for TLC, Kate Plus 8 is nowhere to be seen from now until - ever! The listings go all the way until mid-October, yet there aren't even any repeat showings scheduled. Plus, the show seems to have been dropped form the main Web menu that shows all the available shows on the network.
Curiouser and curiouser!
Care to comment on that one, TLC? Or are you too busy handling the mess over at polygamy playhouse to notice this oversight?!

Michelle said...

She has a serious shoe disability. Where did she get the idea that pink shirt means wear pink shoes; white sweater means white shoes? With all the $$$$ she's spent on clothes and shoes, she needs one of those experts that comes in, puts your clothes together in various proper outfits and takes photos. At least she could just look at the photos every morning and pick an outfit that is completely pulled together. That's a nice looking outfit for running errands until you hit her ankles.

BTW, how does Chris find her at the dry cleaners? He can't be stalking Target, the nail salon and the dry cleaners all at once. I've read many sheeple saying Jon calls Chris to tell him where Kate will be so he can make money off the photos. Do they really think Kate keeps Jon that apprised of her movements that he would have any clue she's going to the dry cleaners? Sheeple is just insulting to all the good sheep of the world. Creeple is much more appropriate.

Kat said...

"The note says: "Do not use wire hangars! If you do, you will be punished under penalty of severeness! And there better not be any DIRT on these clothes, as I will be doing the white glove test when I come to retrieve them. Thank you "."

LOL Thanks for the translation!

prairiemary said...

I think kate has a secret. She looks way too happy and smug to have nothing going on behind the scenes! I think we will be un-happily suprised, and soon. I just hope the kids are okay.

IATK said...

I didn't think Kate was looking so happy in several of the pictures. The one or two where she is smiling is the photo-op smile we always see. I would guess she's still trying to mend her image without opening her mouth, because without Steve, her handler around, there's no telling what might slip out. I also thought she had some pretty dark circles under her eyes but that might be a make-up thing.

Barbra said...

My question or comment is, did she NOT notice the 'paps' until she got to the door? Big scowl the whole way up to the door and then the big shiiit eating grin. And why the BIG basket for 2-3 items, one of which looked like her scuzzy grey gym tee shirt? Guess she really IS desperate if taking 3 things to the cleaners was so important she ventured out for the first time in 'how?' long? And why isn't she updating her wonderful 'kate's take' blog? Doesn't she feel we need to hear her Kate's Krap anymore? If so, SHE'S RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Canuck said...

She does indeed look quite a bit older than her 35 years. I think she may have already messed with her face too much and the results are not favorable. As for the shoes? Who knows why she thinks this look is good for anyone, unless they happen to be 18 years old, which she clearly is not?

BeDoneNow said...

Kate looks all beautified up, got her roots done, maybe her teeth... Smug with new clothes and taking 3 things to the drycleaner that the hired help managed to put in a basket per the attached note of specific how-to- intructions that we see attached.

Probably....She has been off filming or getting photographed for something. My bet is on some kind of fitness product endorsement. or something fitness-ie-ish.

Grammy of nine said...

Prairiemary, I couldn't agree with you more. There is something behind that "smile." I so wish she would just "go away" from public life. But, from the look of the shoes, she is still at the "look at me" stage.

NHmom said...

Yikes!! That smile matches the smile at the top of this blog, picture it. Be assured, she is up to something down and dirty.

Folks, be prepared for the Witch of Wyomissing to go for Jon Gosselin's jugular once again and this time with her teeth.
Newly done hair, teeth, new sweater. all on the back of her hard working children.

Maybe she is reincarnated from a slave labor country where the buzzards pick the bones/

xyz said...

Per INF Daily:


We noticed that Kate’s wicker basket had a very polite note attached which read “ITEMS IN WHITE CLOTH BAG: DRY CLEAN PLEASE” and “ITEMS LOOSE IN BASKET: PRESS ONLY: NO STARCH” finished with “THANKS.”

Tess said...

Lady Gaga called, she wants her shoes back.

As for the smile coming out, I believe Kate talked long enough and loud enough to get her garments cleaned for free. :)

white shoes after Labor Day? Tacky. You can take the girl out of the farm but you can't take the farm out of the girl. (Nothing against girls raised on farms, just Kate) :)

Anonymous said...

Is it just me or does her nose look different? She doesn't look anything like the woman in the Mommie Dearest vide. I guess I am just suspect that everytime she disappears she has something done. Who types a note, punches a hole in it and ties it to a laundry basket. Must have been there for a while because I didn't see a white bag. She just looks different to me.

SmileyGrl752 said...

I admit I am naive when it comes to the "white shoes after Labor Day" ritual---I had never heard of it growing up, and still have no clue what it means. Can someone fill me in?

Anonymous said...

I like the sweater and at least her boobs weren't on display. Kate wears open heels with no socks all winter. Maybe she got a good buy on the shoes at an end of season sale or they were part of her Emmy loot that she's been using or advertising (i.e., Mexican hotel, eye cream, tube dress). She must be at least 6 feet tall in those heels. Next year, she'll be wearing stilts so her children will look like they aren't growing.

TLC stinks said...

Who dresses up like that to do errands? She certainly likes to call attention to her diva self!

One thing I'd like to know----what's the story behind those two solitaire diamond necklaces which never leave her neck. That's the kind of jewelry I would hint to my husband to buy for me.

And she is grinning like a cheshire cat. Yep. She's been getting herself glammed up so it's not over yet.

__________________________________

Used to be a rule "no white shoes after Labor Day"--however, it no longer applies. You can easily Google it. I'm a fashion freak and know. Tried to post it earlier but it didn't get published. I actually think Kate looks cute in that outfit...cute on the OUTSIDE...her insides are beyond repair, and her smile is fake.

JudyK said...

Just a P.S.--Matchy matchy is OUT OUT OUT...so the only problem I have with Kate's shoes is that they are both ugly and boring.

It's really a "fashion-rule" more than anything and maybe followed anymore by folks living in colder winter climates? I doubt ppl in year round warm weather adhere to this "rule" much at all.

Lorrie said...

SmileyGrl752, an unwritten fashion rule is "No wearing white shoes till Memorial Day, no wearing white shoes after Labor Day". That is considered a major fashion faux pas.

mama mia said...

I think this is the best Kate has ever looked. She is smiling, she is covered up, her shoes aren't as bad as the gladiator mess she usually wears, her cankles are covered, and I'll say it again, she is smiling.

Pa Mom ALSO said...

white shoes after Labor Day? Tacky. You can take the girl out of the farm but you can't take the farm out of the girl. (Nothing against girls raised on farms, just Kate) :)

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

It's no longer considered tacky. It's an old "rule" from grandmother's time that is now obsolete. You didn't wear white shoes (or carried a white purse) before Memorial Day or after Labor Day because the weather tends to get sloppy with ice and snow, and you would end up with dirty shoes. It no longer holds true in the fashion world. Stores sell white boots, winter white coats, caps, and scarves and gloves.

I wouldn't have worn those white shoes yesterday simply because the weather was so sloppy around here. It was one of those chilly, raw, rainy days -- wearing white open-toed shoes on a day like that was ridiculous. Come to think of it, who would wear shoes like that to run errands even if the weather was perfect?

xyz said...

Grammy of nine said...I so wish she would just "go away" from public life.

For the most part Kate IS gone. No TV shows (you can even watch TLC and there will be no ads for an upcoming episode), no interviews on The View, Entertainment Tonight. No updated blog. There's only one place you can see Kate now...occasionally. In the gossip rags and blogs. Don't click on them and you'll be Kate Free.

Enjoy!

Anonymous said...

According to "What no to Wear" the no white shoes after Labor Day no longer applies. However, I just stop wearing white shoes when summer ends. Habit I guess.

I always heard you wear a shade of shoe that matches or blends with your skirt or pants...black pants, black/grey shoes, etc. Not sure if that still goes or not. It's a less choppy look however.

Markiesnana said...

I just put the things going to the dry cleaners in my front seat and drive them over.
Oh, also, I'm pretty conscious of time well spent, so in the time it took to create the note I could have had the few items pressed at home.
The other things I would have just mentioned to the dry cleaner staff. They mark it down as you tell them.

Anonymous said...

The U.K. newspaper, Daily Mail, has been picking up the U.S. media reports on anything Kate. People there don't know her as North American audiences do. Could it be that TLC are packaging former episodes for export?

While not as 'hard and fast a rule' now as it was back in my day, the rule of thumb was/is that you don't wear white before Memorial Day or after Labor Day.

Just me said...

My question is why is she still being photographed? Her show is not on TV and she is now one of many reality has beens. Why is Chris still there and who is paying him? I guess he's there because unfortunately, we're still talking about her.

AuntieAnn said...

I think the idea of not wearing white shoes after labor day is an old fashion trend that doesn't apply anymore. As long as you look good in your clothes what does it matter what color you wear.

Note to Kate: The operative word is 'good'. Ditch the stilettos. They look stupid on your size 9 foot and they don't go with your emo pants, you idiot.

Administrator said...

My snark of the day: Besides the shoes, I want to know she got into those jeggings? Maybe Steve is around to help dress her too. I don't think she could of gotten those on herself. They look almost painted on her. Also you don't wear jeggings with a granny sweater. Boy that woman has alot to learn.

She thinks she's a fashion horse. At least she's half right.

I wouldn't follow the rule either if I lived in CA, or FL, and didn't. However, way north, I wouldn't wear white shoes in fall/winter. But then, other than sandals or a cute pair of flats, I'm not a big fan of white shoes anyway.

Laura D. said...

I worked at a dry-cleaner as a teenager and nobody showed up with a hamper, and not once did anyone write a note. We had pre-printed note pads where we could circle typical instructions or jot down customer-specific wishes. And that was the 1980's for pete's sake.

My question is why did she need that giant hamper for those few clothes? She could have tossed them in a used Target sack and been done with it. That hamper looks fairly cumbersome to me, and totally unnecessary.

That was Kate's way of saying, I don't have time to talk to the hired help!

PatK said...

She's lazy, so she probably took the whole basket rather than waste the energy moving the clothes into something else.

The note is obviously for the nanny/housekeeper, who probably does all the laundry now.

Administrator said...

I don’t think it’s uncommon for young people to at some point feel like they got shafted in childhood. But like others have said, you grow up and mature and don't always feel that way. Your perception of your childhood can be different as the years go by. I have no idea what happened in Kate’s childhood. However what she may see as unhappy, others don't always see that way. Two different people can perceive the same event, one finding it happy and the other unhappy.

I have said this to my parents many times:
You didn’t leave us alone. You were always in our business. Now we know it’s because you cared.
You made us share a room and learn to get along. Now us sisters are best friends.
You didn’t, and couldn’t, take us on spectacular vacations three times a year. Now we appreciate travel and love it.
You didn’t give us all the money we wanted. Now we don‘t walk around entitled.
You didn’t buy us the best, the biggest, the next thing. Now that we are adults we don’t waste time and money on things that don’t matter.
You didn’t let us blow our money all at once. Now we save up for the things we really want and feel great when we reach our goals.
You didn’t let us take the easiest classes, quit piano lessons and band, and skip basketball practice. Now we know what a commitment is.
You didn’t let us talk back. Now we know what respect is.

You were always at every sports game, band concert, and play.
You did encourage us to reach for our dreams.
You did set a good example of a hard day’s work.
You did take us on fun and modest family trips that we have lasting memories of.
You did tuck us into bed every night.
You loved us all equally even though each of us wished we were the favorite.
You did talk to us every day even if we acted like we didn't want to. You didn't talk about you, instead you asked about us.
You did respect that once we were 18 your opinion was better kept to yourself unless asked. You fostered a great start to a healthy relationship between an adult parent and child.
You did prepare us to be good Mommies and Daddies someday.
You will always be “home.”

Administrator said...

I will allow discussion about the opinion that the kids should still film. But I will not allow personal attacks against the person who said that. Please help me with this, as I do not want to be that blog. Discussion about general groups is always permitted, such as the cops, puppy dogs, and sheeple. But when you start saying that sheeple named Bob, that's not okay. That's what they do, not us.

And in that vein, someone can want the children to film all they want but the fact of the matter is it's pretty clear their father put a stop to it once and for all. Do you think now that the shows seem to be kaput TLC stopped paying for Steve? He completely disappeared. As much as Kate seems to love him hell if she'll pay his salary.

Marie said...

I have a question I would love feed back on.

Just how is Kate going to cope when real reality sets in? I mean she has said it herself, being on tv, being followed by paps, having people gawk or admire her is now the normal everyday situation. How is Kate going to live without having a bus to take them places? How is she going to adjust with not having a bodyguard since she felt she needed one? How in the world is poor pitiful Kate going to survive when the lights are gone, the cameras are off and TLC has done and packed up for good?

No show lasts forever, we all know that. But what I don't get if they have canceled we haven't see the TLC trucks pull out from the compound yet. I'm still waitng for that official bit of news.

How does Kate plan to function as an everday person again? How is she going to get a normal 9-5 job after people have viewed her on tv as one thing or another, that's got to make getting a job difficult as Jon said that was part of his problem is everybody knows him therefore getting a basic job is not easy. I would love to know other people's view point on how she is going to function without nannies, without production crew, no trips, no helpers, no guards, no paps on a regular, now she reallyw ill have to do everything herself. I mean its got to be a shock to the system right?

She'll finally be a working mom said...

Marie, interesting questions. IMO, Kate will decompensate big time when TLC finally dumps her saggy ass. She will suffer most with the loss of attention and notoriety and the drop in income. Her expenses are outrageous now, mainly because she has that unnecessarily large home which she is too lazy to maintain and 8 kids that she is uninterested in caring for. Plus she loves playing the diva, with chefs, nannies, and maids to do her job and an unnecessary bodyguard for companionship. I don't know if TLC pays for any of her expenses outside of the show, but if they are, it won't last forever. Kate has never taken care of her own kids. From the time the tups entered the world, there's been nurses, nannies, friends and family (in the past), and of course, Jon, to actually take care of the kids while she sat on her ass and barked orders. All those helpers are now gone, except for Jon, who doesn't do Kate's bidding anymore, and the paid nannies. If the money stops rolling in, will Kate do the unthinkable and finally actually take care of her own kids? I pity those kids. It won't be pretty

we have had all john and kate plus 8 episodes in the uk for years .kate plus 8 premiered this week on a cable channel that is not popular.
the preview for the show were just terrible saying she was the most popular STAR in the usa to emerge in the last two years.
no worries she will remain unknown to most people in the uk
by the way we have some truly awful programmes aired from the usa.
man and food i think it is called.toddlers and tiaras is another.

I dont give a shit about what kate does...or where she goes...or what she's wearing.I dont care about the shoes she's wearing..

I just want to know that the 8 have stopped filming.The kids have WORKED long and hard.I do believe they have paid enough for thier privacy.Is kate gone? I sure hope so.Will the Go$$elin 8 get the quiet live they deserve? I'm not thinking so..

Let kate fade out...the kids are begging for it!

gotyournumberKate said...

Pa Mom said......It's no longer considered tacky. It's an old "rule" from grandmother's time that is now obsolete. You didn't wear white shoes (or carried a white purse) before Memorial Day or after Labor Day because the weather tends to get sloppy with ice and snow, and you would end up with dirty shoes. It no longer holds true in the fashion world. Stores sell white boots, winter white coats, caps, and scarves and gloves.

Hi Pa Mom. I'm a PA Mom too. I agree just about anything goes these days as far as fashion. It's the same as seeing Ugg boots with shorts in the summer but I guess I am stuck in my grandmothers era because I still think white shoes after Labor Day look tacky. It was preached to me as a child and it just stuck all these years. I have never been a fan of white shoes period for some reason. Other than tennis shoes I don't think I've ever owned a pair. I mostly don't care for Kate's choice of shoes especially her "platform flipflops". Just my individual taste. I am hardly a fashion expert as far as knowing what's trendy and what's not. I just don't care for her style. You're right, it's been cold and wet in PA the past few days and I wouldn't begin to consider wearing those kind of shoes on a dry cleaning run or anywhere else for that matter. Im already wearing my knee socks and loafers. Comfort is my objective not high fashion. It's suppossed to warm up in our beautiful state this weekend. Enjoy!

Hippie Chick said...

Marie, I think when Kate realizes the kids are useless to her, she'll send them back to Jon. I know that's a heartless to say, but I've said that all along. It will take a long time for Kate to come to the realization that she is no longer a commodity, think going out in public & doing embarrassing things. She'll hit the talk show circuit & cry, but this time, it will look pathetic, TLC won't be behind her, & she'll come off looking stupid & idiotic. (no earpieces!!)

She'll quietly fade into oblivion & maybe pop up on Celebrity Fit Club or I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here, or something equally embarrassing, just to try & stay relevant, but her attitude will always stay front & center, her likability will fall (again), & there she'll be, not in her mansion, but in a modest house, with no nannies, no help, and no family, because she she stepped on everyone to get to the top.

PA Mom ALSO said...

No. She will find a husband/live-in to do it.

PatE said...

...admin, the "sign of true love" is when you no longer have to pay "his" salary and he still comes around.

Steve is scum. He knew Kate was hot for him three years ago and he did not quit.

emschick1128 said...

Marie, Good questions. I think Kate is going to have a major meltdown once TLC finally kicks her to the curb for good. I can see her now on all the media outlets crying about how she will not be able to support her family of 8, yes 8 children. Kate certainly has made more than enough money to support her family for many years to come if she lives within her means. She has always taken the stand more or less that there is no other way for anyone to support this many kids unless they do a reality show like she has done. She is of course the only person in the world to ever have 8 or more children to support. Even if she doesn't have enough for college like she claims so what. How many people do have college completely financed by the time their kids are 6 and 9? Not many and if there it's enough they can take out loans like most people do. If that was her true motivation for doing the show(which we all know is crap) there should certainly be enough money. My parents supported 9 kids and sent them to college by WORKING and living within their means. I can't imagine Kate ever working again as a nurse and if she did God help her poor patients. I think Kate looked very washed out in those photos and obviously had no place to get dressed up to go to as usual. I can't even imagine what a miserable person she must be inside. She has been blessed with so much good fortune but has done nothing but bitch and moan. She deserves whatever misery comes her way. I have zero sympathy for her because I think she is truly a bad person. I just pity those poor kids having to put up with her when the nannies are gone.

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

Administrator- your parents did a good job.
You are all very fortunate to have each other.

It's sad that not all children can claim that.

Anonymous said...

My question is why did she need that giant hamper for those few clothes? She could have tossed them in a used Target sack and been done with it. That hamper looks fairly cumbersome to me, and totally unnecessary.

I asked myself the same question. I guess it's because TLC/Kate still think we could all learn organization and efficiency from her, the most organized and efficient mom (of 8 kids, you know) around. HA
If you believe that, I have a bridge I'd like to sell you.

She's one of the most UNORGANIZED and LEAST efficient people I've ever seen. Anyone who neatly stacks her kids new shoes, still in boxes, in a cabinet, and leave them there till the morning they're heading out for their first day of school (and wait for this exact minute to sit down to label them) - is NOT organized, nor is she efficient.

Her much touted organization and efficiency and 'ocd' were all for the show. A ploy to draw young mothers and unfortunately for them, many fell for it.

BeDoneNow said...

RE the discussion about Kate when the crew leaves;

One of the things that struck me when the new crew was put back in last time, is how Kate said she loves them soooo much because they watch the kids for her, and help her with so many things around the house. (Like hanging her blinds while she naps??)

I think the kids will really suffer after all the production people are finally gone, especially the boys. She very much needs MEN to denigrate and have step-and-fetch for her, and she will be very angry with her sons for not being old enough to meet her needs.

It might not get too bad as long as she can still afford at least 2-at-a-time hired hands in the house to boss around, but once she cant afford that, there will be hell to pay for all those kids. All those pics of her running from parking lot to parking lot for the past year, she has rarely had a child with her. The single mom who does it all alone, constantly has a stable of sitters at the ready for any time she wants to primp and go.

I still think she has something cooking, fitness product endorsements or something, and she has been in front of cameras for the past few weeks. There is a marketing campaign being developed for whatever-it-is, and Chris was told not to let it leak out. Other than Chris, no one really cares about her, or we would have heard something by now.

And you are right - she physically, emotionally, mentally and financially cannot maintain that house. And she will blame the kids outright for getting her into it. ("WAAAA, there's too many of us! WAAAA".)

If TLC is actually done with Kate I don't think we'll see Steve until/unless she gets some other entertainment gig, when I imagine she'd have 'bodyguard' expenses written into the contract (as she did when she was still on the church circuit). But then again - I wonder if her dependence on him is so great that she'd pay him out of the kids own pocket. Hmmm - she probably would.

NT said...

Well,at least we know that in a few days we will see pics of her picking up the dry cleaning. Any bets on what she'll be wearing?

ADMIN -

I am late in wishing you a happy anniversary for your fine site. Thank you for all you do. I know how much work went into setting it up, and then into maintaining it daily. Not to mention dealing with US!

(I run my own site, so I kind of get it. Yesterday was very active, I had 278 posts and at one point the flood control even took a nap!)

MickeyMcKean said...

Marie, you are correct when you said it is going to be a shock to her system when reality sets in.

Think about it ... Kate will go from the spotlight - of being "hated" - to no one gives a crap when she fills up her gas tank, stops for a donut, etc. The locals already do not give a rip, but when the rest of the world does not either ... it is going to be hard for her to adjust.

It is one thing for an actor to be so identified by his long term part on a TV show that he cannot find work in a new role - example: Urkel - but this is reality TV. Kate cannot act, she can only be herself. She tried other avenues but she failed in all attempts. So there is no place for her to go but to stay home.

As for what will Kate do when she has to let go the people who does her laundry, cleaning, cooking etc. because she can no longer afford to keep them, she will simply look upstairs!

The children's chore list will grow dramatically - one way or another these children will always support HER. Just because they do not work Kate will not either - one way or another she will expect these kids to "pay" for their own upbringing. If there is no show where they are "playing" in front of cameras which brings in money to pay the hired help, then these kids can do the laundry, ironing, cooking, cleaning, mowing, cleaning the pool, etc.

Kate of course will be exhausted in barking orders.

One of the things that bothers me the most about Kate is that from the beginning I always got the impression that she does not seem to feel blessed - just the fact that the kids survived, that they did not suffer any long term effects of being born premature - seems to escape her when other families were not this fortunate.

However, I do think she is well aware that if the six pack had not hit the ground she would never ever have walked the red carpet at the Emmys and be living in the McMansion. But now that interest in the kids is minimal due to them getting older as well as there are other shows with multiples, Kate will have to return to being an unknown. Whereas the kids will love getting their privacy, for Kate she will always miss the spotlight and attention.

Sooverit said...

I was watching Regis & Kelly this morning, and they were talking about a German study that spanned something like 26 years. It looked at what choices tend to make a happy life. The number one item on the list was: don't marry a neurotic person (What if you ARE a neurotic person?!?). Number two was: focus on family and friends rather than material things. I don't need a 26 year study to tell me that. I can just look at Kate for instructions on how NOT to live my life.

With Cara and Mady's 10th birthday coming up this week, there's no doubt that pictures will appear, courtesy of Chris.

=================
Good point. We want her to fade away, but when she does there's nothing but speculation. Seeing the number of posts here and number of negative comments on INF compared to the limited amount of sheeple comments, I agree that the "haterz" are the ones breathing life into the beast. I am guilty!

The whole point of blogs like this were to protect the children and make sure they're not working. As we all know, at the moment they are not. If something is announced, that's a different story but at the moment they're not being filmed or even broadcast. 109 comments on Kate going to the dry cleaners, size of her basket, shoes, etc. has nothing to do with the children.

You are right that we are the ones keeping her relevant and I am going to try to do my part to walk away.

Thanks for the wise words!

Judy said...

TLC is not finished with Kate yet. They are just laying low with the custody battle coming up next month.
She needs to be acting like she gives a rats a** about those kids and less about herself and her so called career.
There are already plans in motion for Kate and she's in pure "Hog Heaven" waiting to slap all of us right in the face with the news.
This ought to be good.I'm looking forward to watching Kate fall flat on her face once again.

cathy518 said...

I agree with what TLC stinks says about it being a little premature to start celebrating the plug being pulled on Kate. I think something is up and it is the reason she has been MIA lately. And the fugly shoes? I think they are intentional. She knows when she wears those outlandish heels that she will be talked about all the more!

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

The white shoe thing...our mothers and grandmothers always drummed the white shoe law into our heads! You absolutely did not wear white shoes after Labor Day under penalty of severeness!

I can't imagine her running around in those shoes. I'm surprised she wasn't wearing her favorite turquoise halter top with the "girls" hanging out in the rain. Like you, I put away the flip-flops and put on socks and shoes this week. It felt so weird! I don't turn on the heat in the house until I can see my breath! LOL!

Grammy of nine said...

It bothers me, too, that Kate seems ungrateful. Considering that not a single one of her kids have any serious health issues, she is totally blessed. I caught a glimpse of the new family in New York last evening and those little ones have serious issues with their health. I wonder what TLC will do for/to that family? Sad, really.

Does anyone feel like she will be sought out for talk shows, etc. IF she's not even on TV, but just talked about here on the blogs?? I have always thought her agent was the one who got her her gigs on R&K, Today, etc. Does TLC pay for her agent? Is she going to be able to pay for her agent, if TLC lets her go? Admin, do you have a guess-estimate on what an agent costs?

Too, too funny! Did you catch the list of things Kate Gosselin is available to do? Why, anything at all it would seem. She might even
ride a cow backwards down the streets of Los Angeles wearing nothing but her magic bra, her black satin shorts, her stiletto heels and a big bow in her hair. Anything to keep the jobs rolling in. Unbelievable. Truly unbelievable what talent agents have to offer for "celebs" like Kate Gosselin.

Hippie Chick said...

Some posters are speculating she has something up her sleeve in terms of another gig, but what I'm curious about is, who would touch her now? It's not like she's really a hot commodity. Her relevance is slipping day by day, ratings for her show slipped week to week, she is rude, classless, crass, & just plain mean to those around her when she's on camera. I wonder who would touch her with a 100 foot pole in terms of producers, directors, etc.

There is supposedly a ToK, but that seems to be not happening. I don't know, it all seems unlikely that Hollywood would bank on someone with zero talent and likability when there are so many more people out there with the talent and drive who didn't use their kids for a free ride.

OT - I had never watched DWTS untill last season so I do not have a basis to judge on this question of mine. I have been wondering about this question:

When Kate was on DWTS I thought that every one of Kart's costumes were VERY ugly.

The show’s Emmy-winning costumer is Randall Christensen and this season I have NOT seen costumes on anyone that were as horrible as Kart wore. Did the costume department pick for Kart or did she dress herself???

An agent gets a percentage what their client makes, so lets say the going rate could be anywhere from 35 to 40 percent.

This woman needs mental help! TLC is stupid to put her on tv anymore and anyone else who supports her is just mental too! She is either just mean as heck and a mommie dearest type person or she is mentally ill. She makes money by working her children and the rest of the time she is gone chasing fame and trying to get her sexy on with plastic surgery and make overs! Sick, sick,sick and completely selfish! In my opinion only.

emschick1128 said...

There are pictures up on Gossip center of Kate in the parking lot (of course) of a party store. She's looking pretty rough once again with messy, stringy hair, no make up and an old boozer look well beyond her 35 years. I really believe she has been wallowing in self pity over her "career" being in the toilet.

The going rate for agents in tv/movies/sports is anywhere from 10-30% depending on the star's 'ranking' in their genre's hierarchy (and of course there are extremes_.

Ughh saw the picture of her yesterday at the dry cleaners. Two things I don't get, why the laundry hamper with 3 items? Why the big grin coming out of the dry cleaners when its a vacant lot except for her huge bus? So obvious that it is a setup photo/op by her publicist to keep her somehow relevant. The pictures make no sense along with the 7 inch heel with wrap around strap, not to mention, white of all colors.

________________________
Marie, IMO, Take is already going down the path of becoming an alcoholic. Just look at the candid pics. She is 35, but with the sagging facial flesh and ruts, she looks a good 15 years older. I think once the TLC well runs dry and no more gigs in "entertainment" appear, she will make her job one of permanent alcoholic and her cruelty and abuse of those kids will multiply hundred-fold. I think there will have to be an intervention of some sort (CPS?) and she will have to spend some extended time in a psychiatric facility. JMO.

UGH
TLC using up what good Alaska footage they might have been able to salvage, is my guess. But how do they turn the spectacle she made of the visit into good tv?
Another recap for you, Admin.

Kate Plus 8 Not Canceled!

Like it or not, Kate Gosselin will be back on the tube!
The mom of eight — who some Star readers love and others just love to hate — did not get the axe from TLC, as has been reported. Kate Plus 8 will be back on the air next month.

“It is just rumors," a source at the show tells Star. "The next episode will air in November.”

As for why there's been a gap between airdates of the program — which was always described as a series of TV specials and not a weekly show — it’s because the children are in school full time now and that's been the priority.

“They were able to shoot a lot in the summer, because the kids were out of school," adds the source. "With all the kids in school now, they shoot more sporadically.”

As for Twist of Kate, the new Kate series that was announced in May, there’s still no premiere date.

In the summer, the network also confirmed that that Kate will appear on TLC’s new series Sarah Palin’s Alaska, starring the former vice presidential candidate. "The Palins graciously shared their Alaska with the Gosselin family and that camping trip will be part of an upcoming episode," a TLC rep said at the time. That show is set to premiere on Nov. 14 at 9pm.

How very SNEAKY of TLC. Now they're turning the Alaska footage into its own episode of Kate Plus 8 to pretend that the show is still continuing. But notice how this is not any NEW footage. And now suddenly school is a reason not to film. That never stopped them before. Total cop out.

They did a piece on the costumes last season in DWTS and said that the pro works with the star to design the costumes, but idk what in the heck happened to Kate's wardrobe!

If some of the outrageous outfits Kate dressed herself in this summer is any indication - I say she did the damage to herself last season. lol

All eight children were not in school five full days per week until now. It's not a "cop out" it's the reality of a different schedule.

Administrator said...

Drama, the twins have been in full time school for years and have always been filmed. All of the children were pulled out of school for the Florida trip. They have been pulled out of school for other things such as the trip to LA to see Kate on DWTS. They never had a problem distrupting their school schedule before. Child labor laws actually permit them to pull the kids out of school. The point is school never stopped them from filming before.

Administrator said...

And many episodes were filmed on the weekend. For starters, Babies and Bedrooms was filmed over a couple weekends. Why not film on the weekends? Beside if it's reality why aren't they filming reality, which is the children in school and Kate running to the dry cleaners.

Things that make you go hmm.

There were episodes without Cara and Mady, because they were in school. The schedule is different now. That is fact, regardless of how you choose to spin it. If it makes you feel better to think that TLC is SNEAKY, the show has been canceled, etc. then spin away. Either the series will return or it won't. All the spinning and speculating in the world will have no bearing on that.

TLC ship is sinking said...

TLC is still going to air a Kate Plus 8 Alaskan special? Sigh.

Here's the big question:
Are they still delusional enough to put Sarah Palin and Kate Gosselin back-to-back on the same night? If so, who's the lead-in show, Sarah or Kate? (Kate could use Palin's potential ratings nowadays...my, how times have changed.)

Or, since it's airing on a Sunday, are they willing to air Sarah Palin along with Sister Wives (their newest controversial hit show)?

Since no date is confirmed for Kate Plus 8, Sarah Palin fans who would you rather see on her big premiere night: Sister Wives or Kate Gosselin? I'm sure inquiring TLC minds want to know.


This whole rumor media blitz about Kate being canceled was probably started by TLC (after this blog first speculated). Tell Kate to lay-low for awhile, then blitz the media to draw huge ratings for November sweeps.

(Red-flags went up with Perez Hilton's post "Kate Gosselin Still MIA". It sounded similar to admin's post "TLC pulls Kate Plus 8...", especially where he went on about checking the TLC main page, scroll down menu, etc.)

Sigh.

Drama, you don't have to take it so personal. My opinion is the show is done and TLC is stalling and hoping to let it fizzle out without ever having to actually announce Jon won't allow them to exploit his flesh and blood any longer. You are right, time will tell. Are we not allowed to interpret this as yet another stall tactic and diversion? It's just one interpretation, it is not personal against you or those who think otherwise.

If you look at IMDB, Cara and Mady made an appearance in only a few less episodes than the Tups. Hardly significant.

Anonymous said...

I doubt TLC would waste any of the Alaska footage that was filmed during the summer. It must have cost TLC a pretty penny to film that Kate Plus 8 episode and it will end up somewhere. TLC will not waste that expensive trip even if they have to edit and film some extra Alaska footage in Kate's backyard or basement.

"There were episodes without Cara and Mady, because they were in school."

Which episodes? Dates filmed?

Livvy said...

The new pics at INF are the worst I have seen. Kates face is drawn with bags under the eyes. Looks much older than her years. Not taking care of herself. Shopping for the twins bday. I don't know how she will be able to do the same for their bday as she did for the 6. Hope she figures out something because they will be hurt if not. Remember Mady in the Fla episode.

Either the series will return or it won't. All the spinning and speculating in the world will have no bearing on that.

Did somebody say that it would?

Marie said...

Thanks guys. I never expected feedback.

I took a look at the recent photos of her in preparation for Cara and Mady's birthday coming up and WOW--she just looks so washed up, her face is full of wrinkles. SHe just does not look her age. She looks tiered, even a bit dazed as if REAL reality has set in. On the emotional level of being a good person I feel just a tinge of sympathy for Kate, call me crazy yet I just can't bring myself to hate another human being no matter how dispicable, intolerable they are. I do dislike what Kate has done to her family and what she has become is why I do not like her, its her actions as a person that have cost Kate so much and probably will continue to cost her.

I mean look at all she had gained:

A good husband
Suportive extended family (or so it seemed prior to the younger children)
A good job as a nurse
8 healthy children

Now look at what all she has lost because she was given so much via TLC and her fans:

No husband
No suportive family (from what I can see)
No job (since going back to a 9-5 job just isn't something I think will come easy to Kate anymore, be it the way she has treated people being hired will be difficult because everyone who has ever seen her show will now have a larger opinion of her and her skills)
And with the way she seems to treat her childen with so much control, she will lose a good, healthy, lasting relationship with any of her chldren.

I feel sorry because she is another human being and we all deserve some sort of kindness even if in return we do not receive it. Yet what I don't have for Kate is any empathy. She brought it all upon herself and from the look of this recent picture it seems to have slapped her square in the face, yet she's the one who has to live with it while the world watches her go from what she had and didn't ever appreicate it to now becoming, sorry to say, a whiny, bitchy, seeming narsasstic person. She isn't going to have any close friends. When have we ever seen anyone over at her house or out for a girls' day with her ina long while? She doesn't want any close family none that we have seen. So what is Kate going to have other than herself? Sad.

StoryLady said...

Judging by the way Kate's looking these days, I think the real "Reality" of her life is starting to hit her.

Administrator said...

If anyone is spinning this I think it's TLC. They won't tell the truth--that Jon won't let them film the kids. Because the truth looks bad. They are stalling until people lose interest, then they will quietly can all things Gosselin. You know they are the only ones still insisting nothing is wrong the show is continuing. Jon, my source, and Perez sources are all saying the kids are done filming. And they have not filmed since August. It is now October 6. They had plenty of time to film over labor day or on the weekend. They filmed the first day of school in the morning, why not film another day of school? They are full of it.

sftk said...

I bet there is something in the works for the diva otherwise she would be on the talk shows with her purse full of bills, crying that she has no help and needs food to feed her moneymakers oops, I mean children. She is acting pretty confident and smug which I take to mean she knows she is still in the drivers seat and someone is still meeting her demands. She is not going away for a long time and will do whatever it takes to continue her lifestyle of the rich and famous. Fine but just leave the kids out of it. I would not watch anything she is in anyway so my life will go on as usual also.

Administrator said...

For that matter Kate has not updated her blog in more than a month and TLC is stall, stall, stalling away pushing back Kate Plus 8 yet ANOTHER month. They have now been pushing this show back almost a year now. Kate filmed her test in N.C. in NOVEMBER.

Administrator said...

Sorry meant Twist of Kate. Or as I call it Twisted Kate.

Anon 1 said...

Do you all think Kate is dumb enough to believe TLC when they keep dangling the T of K carrot in front of her? Or does she really know for sure there's something in the wings?

Moonlight Bay said...

When have we ever seen anyone over at her house or out for a girls' day with her ina long while?

For some reason, there are many who think that we see every minute of her personal life filmed. We don't. The cameras are not on her or the kids 24/7/365. Thank goodness. She very well may have someone at her house; the twins may have sleepovers with friends; the kids may participate in school activities. Just because we don't see it does not mean that it doesn't happen.

Marie said...

All I meant by the comment of does she seem to have any friends was really a joke on the fact its proof to us that Kate is not constantly stalked by paps. I'm not THAT interested on every aspect of her life. Just it doesn't seem that Kate has many friends and that's a sad fact of what she's become to try and gain fame and notoriety.

alana said...

TLC sneaky? NOOOOOOOOOOO; you're kidding me, right?

As a network AND a group of corporate bigwigs, TLC is the sneakiest, most sadistic organization I've ever known of. They are manipulators to the Nth degree; how do I hate them? Let me count the ways... Sneaky, slovenly, sloth doth fill your days.

SNEAKY sneaky sneak sneak. YES! TLC is sneaky.

moneybag said...

I do not understand why people think that when her "career" is finished, she will need to go and work at a real job-from all of the reading I have done, she has made millions! Millions! She never has to work ever again! She only wants to keep working because she has a huge need to be seen.There is no way she could have gone through millions already, and I am pretty sure she has had an expert or two, and they have helped her invest the money. It is her poor kids who will one day need to go and find jobs, as she will not give them a penny of her "mine all mine" money.

Administrator said...

Kate will never admit she's a complete millionaire set for life because then she can't use the excuse she has bills to pay and that's why she has to film the kids.

Kate is either 1.really bad with money (quite possibly) or 2. got really shafted by TLC. Or both. For everything that family has been through for six years selling their lives to TLC, they should be able to buy a small country, build a large palace there, and live like royalty. Even if we don't agree on the exact figure that TLC made off this family, it's obvious it's in the 10's of millions if not 100's of millions. How much did Kate get?

Kate is being exploited too.

silimom said...

As my grandma used to say "It will be what it will be". Either TLC will drop her or they have something else lined up. Either she'll be on the Celebrity Apprentice or she won't. In the long run, it doesn't really matter. She isn't the first person who has received undeserved fame and fortune. She is storing up her treasures on earth. I hope she's happy with them.

I wonder if this is somehow tied in to the court date in November.....?

TLC stinks said...

I looked at the pictures. She looks worse than me and I'm 56. Seems like she's having a rough time of it. Maybe nobody is interested in hiring her in Hollywood.

So my prediction came true...pictures of Kate shopping for the twins' b-day. I wonder if there'll be more shots of a party...maybe Steve will pop up.

As far as the Alaska airing, I'm not surprised at all. It's money already spent, so TLC needs to air it, plus it will promote Palin's show. The real question is whether TLC extends the work permits for the kids after this month. That is what you have to watch for. After Murt questioned the legality of what PA did, it may no longer be possible. I'm guessing some bureaucrat got their butt chewed with all the bad publicity.

If Kate is so talented, then she should be able to carve out a successful career without the kids. Period. End of story.

TLC stinks said...

I forgot to add that I do agree that TLC probably shafted Kate on the money, but I don't agree that she doesn't know how to handle it. I would bet my bottom dollar that with the help of a CPA and/or attorney, she has squirreled away plenty and is keeping it hidden from Jon and the kids. And I believe that the kids, as adults, will not see any of it.

Anonymous said...

___

Kate has said herself that every moment of her life she is stalk stalk stalked by the paps, she doesn't get a moment's peace and that they won't leave her alone. So from what she has said, then, yes, we do see every moment her life, and which has demonstrated that she and the kids never do anything unless TLC pays for it.

Or she could be lying GASP about all the paps/attention.

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

Not if she keeps the current property. If you sit down and figure out the yearly expenses she has on the property, with mortgage and taxes, utilities, tuition, paid helpers, maintenance, etc., she is not set for life. She may have enough to see the kids through age 18, but that's going to be cutting it close. Having lived in the area all of my life, and having owned property here, I can just about figure what she is going to need a year just to take care of the basics. It's a staggering amount.

Dee said...

I agree with StoryLady. Kate is looking really washed up and hard lately. I think she went away for awhile because TLC has pulled the plug on her and Twist of Kate is not being filmed. Does anyone else think there maybe a silence clause in her contract where she can't say anything? Or she is really worried about the hearing coming up? No, I don't think so or I think she would be seen with her kids more. I think it is all over for Kate. I think she has burned too many bridges and nobody is interested. JMO.

Betsy said...

She is a very wealthy mama and has no worries about having to ever go back to a regular job again. Those working days at a regular job is over and she knows it. That house, cars and kids tuition are all paid for and now she can shop, travel and do what ever she wants at the age of 35. I don't feel sorry for her, I feel sorry for me cause I have to leave for work now and do it all over again tomorrow too.

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

Marie, I can tell you are a fair, compassionate and kind soul.

My personal opinion is that Kate is fully aware of what she's doing, and not as innocent as she wants the public to believe. Judging by her controlling personality, I sincerely doubt that she would allow herself to be bullied into doing ANYTHING she did not agree with.

TLC may be "circus promoters", but you need a willing subject to have a show. Kate appears to be so blinded by fame, and WANTS this so badly, that she does not care what we think, or what her kids think, or how horrible, mean, stupid, and annoying she comes across.

TLC and Kate are both very willing partners in this crime. Unfortunately, the Gosselin 8 are the only victims here. No one else.

Remember, there are many famous (or unfamous) families of multiples (the Dillies, for example) that chose to raise their families properly and lovingly away from reality t.v.
It's plain to see that these families have their children's best interests in mind- and they have thrived and survived without being on t.v. Obviously, Kate has other priorities.

We all know Kate is a human being, deserving of compassion, and understanding. We also know that Kate and a big corporation are both using each other to make BIG money, and (for Kate) to be famous. That on it's own, is perfectly fine- and pure business. But when you include 8 innocent children- it is UGLY, CRUEL & UNFAIR of her, and will sooner or later, will destroy all of them.

Sorry if I come across preachy. I'm passionate about innocents rights. I'm know that I am also preaching to the converted anyway ;o)

Have a great day :o)

IATK said...

If Kate has friends and/or family around (and I don't care if she does or doesn't) how is it she is able to protect them from paparazzi cameras but not her children? Just a thought...

Diane said...

Speaking of Kate's friends...has there been any sightings of Jamie lately? I haven't seen Kate's bff in a while now. Anyone else?

IATK- Hi. I totally agree with you about Kate supposedly being able to protect her friends and family from the paps, but, not her children. Odd? Maybe, she doesn't want to protect her kids???

Kate & the cherry Picker - Pam came down from the ceiling in a colored ring. Kate was supposed to go up in it. Whatever went thru Kate's mind I can't fathom But she ran to the cherry picker instead. What ensued was WTF is she doing? ergo, all of the laughter. BTW, Kate did not attend the "after parties."

Hippie Chick said...

Some posters are speculating she has something up her sleeve in terms of another gig, but what I'm curious about is, who would touch her now? It's not like she's really a hot commodity. Her relevance is slipping day by day, ratings for her show slipped week to week, she is rude, classless, crass, & just plain mean to those around her when she's on camera. I wonder who would touch her with a 100 foot pole in terms of producers...

the thing is that this is subjective. not everyone thinks of kate this way.

kimmie said...

i think in those photos that klate has no makeup on...and she's going to look totally different than when she is made up and we see her on tv or whatever.

i also think the grayness of the day makes a difference. in the last pic it looks like the sun came out...and look at the difference in her complexion and face.

i think it's a shame how people pick apart her appearance...

Dee, I do. I can't imagine them not having a silence clause in her contract. With her mouth? lol. And I think you're right she's not too worried about losing her kids. She'd be more worried about the money the kids won't be making her if the show is over.

Whatever is going down I don't feel sorry for her. Not after the way I've watched her treat her kids and how she's tossed aside all the people in her life to get what she wanted. I almost felt sorry for her a few times but then she comes back even more cocky. Besides she'll get enough sympathy from the sheeple. Her next victim is out there somewhere. Some man will come along with lots of money, she'll marry him and live off him until she's sucked the life out of him too.

Midnight Madness said...

And here's the thing. When you look at pictures of her from only three years ago, she looks like an entirely different person. She was young, fresh, and natural looking then. It's scary to think how much she has aged in just three years! She's added at least 15 years. How could someone age that much in such a short period of time?

Bubbles said...

QUOTE: In the summer, the network also confirmed that that Kate will appear on TLC’s new series Sarah Palin’s Alaska, starring the former vice presidential candidate. "The Palins graciously shared their Alaska with the Gosselin family and that camping trip will be part of an upcoming episode," a TLC rep said at the time. That show is set to premiere on Nov. 14 at 9pm.


My interpretation of this article quote is that the camping trip will be part of an upcoming PALIN episode, not another episode of Kate + 8.

I hold both parents responsible for putting their kids 'out there' for discussion.

Anonymous @ 9:05- There have been alot of articles, in better media mediums, where they have listed the $ kate gets for the various gigs she has taken on, you would have to be very daft to not be able to add up the numbers, and see what her bottom line is. She strikes me as being smart enough, to be sure the mortgage, cars, private education, and other big expenses, have been all paid off, just in case she lost her popularity. I remember what Jon said, about her having a lot of different accounts where she keeps her money. She has no need to ever worry about her millions.

Hippie Chick said...

Kimmie, think about it for a minute. She is a national joke. She lets herself get picked apart at the Emmy's, which let's face it, was probably the high point of her career, and all of the articles about her being there were scathing, and all of the pictures of her were cut out. She was THE JOKE. Either she was in on it and wants to play it that way, which is a really, really sad way to stay relevant, or she is just plain stupid.

How can you justify the fact that anyone in Hollywood would want to work with this woman? I'm talking real, live Hollywood. Not freak-fest TLC, make believe, reality TV. Look at the Paula Dean show. Hell, look at DWTS. She was a trainwreck! Her true colors just shine through in whatever situation you put her in. Kate may think she has the talent to get far in LA, but likability is a huge factor in that business, I'm sure. Look at Kim Kardashian. Famous for the sake of being famous, but at least she has the likability factor. (and she works hard) Kate, not so much. I just don't see any director, producer, even a lighting guy, saying "Hey, I would really love to work with that Kate Gosselin".

Anonymous said...

kate's blog still does not have a new post. When the new post comes up, that's when we'll hear a new announcement about what show she is doing.

So when the new post appears, no matter how asinine, juvenile or ridiculous it is, let's meet it with complete silence. Seriously, I do believe TLC is setting us up, otherwise they would have removed her blog. They haven't, and they are STILL posting comments to it. So give Kate/TLC what they fear: absolute silence and a complete lack of recognition.

OH dear. well, sometimes folks have conversations and express opinions and also how a factual event appears. Like Al-Queda smashed a plane into the World Trade Center. No, none of us were on the plane and examined the cult creditials of the 'pilot', but we tend to discuss it as fact anyway.

Have the Gosselin parents signed contracts selling video footage of their children for money? Yes. Is Kate abusive and neglectful of her children? Yes. Does Kate call media attention on her lack of mothering skills her 'career'? Yes.

You disagree? That's ok. We will be over HERE and you will be over THERE with the groups that believes the moon landing was a hoax, the holocaust never happened, Elvis is still alive and Kate Gosselin is secretly a good mother who does it all for her kids.

From a website, "8 Worst Celebrities We'd Never Want To Be" --

Kate Gosselin: "We can't think of a single person who likes Kate Gosselin. Even her partner on Dancing with the Stars (sweet, loving Tony Dovolani) couldn't stand her. We can totally see why, with her constant public meltdowns and bossy nature. That can't be good for her skin. Anybody care to send her a jar of wrinkle cream?"

JudyK said...

STRANGE pics on INF of Kate picking the kids up from school yesterday w/ the blonde nanny and storyline saying Kate greeted them all w/ hugs and kisses. How transparent can TLC or Kate's attorney be in getting the public to buy this act? Honestly, it makes me want to barf--never, not once, has she done this in the past. And Alexis is literally almost on her knees pleading with Kate for something. Weird.

Markiesnana said...

I did not know that there were hate sites about any of these kids, either; but I WHOLLY put the blame on the Gosselin parents for parading their children in front of the public.
There will always be people joining together and taking up causes, etc...including having a "togetherness" over a political party or a person that they "hate".
However, this just couldn't have happened if the parents hadn't opened the door.
I see a difficult future for the kids, not only because of what they've already been through, but because of their gene pool.

Administrator said...

Pimping your young children out on TV to millions for six years is not the same as leaving your door unlocked one night and you get raped. I am the biggest champion of not blaming the victim when a crime occurs. This is blaming the victim. Jon and Kate are not victims. They knew full well they what they were exposing their children to. They are no victims. They are responsible. I think one of the biggest reasons most parents would never do what they did is for this very reason--you're exposing your children and exploiting them and denying them of privacy. It's not fair to them and it's certainly very dangerous.
