Try 2 Keep Up: Kate spotted jogging again

After 10 days of relative recluse, Kate was finally spotted out jogging on Saturday. Is the custody and filming battle wearing her down?


Kate was wearing a 'Try 2 Keep Up' shirt by Nike (at left)--in pink of course!

I read on another blog that Kate had to turn down the DWTS correspondant job on ET due to contractual obligations with TLC, thus Niecy got the job. Can anyone confirm this?

She looks like she's trying to run off an all night wine bender.

I think she's cracking. Because she can win in court all day long when it comes to filming the kids, but the bottom line is if TLC isn't making enough money off them to be worth it, TLC is dropping her cold.

I think TLC has dropped her. I think TLC has cut Steve from the payroll because they are not her own personal 401k plan to support her the rest of her life. And I think TLC has told her they don't want to film the kids if it doesn't make financial sense anymore. This day was coming and we all said so for years, even Jon said so--TLC can and will drop her like a rock when it is no longer to their financial benefit. Cue Kate's breakdown.

I haven't heard that, but based on the numerous negative comments on ET's facebook page, they could have made the decision to hire someone that people liked instead of detested. Or maybe they wanted someone who could actually interview people without interjecting herself into every sentence. Sounds like sour grapes coming of the sheeple to me.

Barbara said...

I hope you are right, admin. But I suspect that TLC has something up their sleeve. They have kept her very quiet and out of sight. Next month is ratings sweeps month and I just have a sneaky feeling TLC is not quite done with trying to stuff her down our throats. I hope I'm wrong, and for sure what you say sounds right, but things just seem to go this woman's way and she always seems to win.

JudyK said...

Duped again, personally I think Kate lost the correspondent's job with ET because of being so obnoxious...i.e., grabbing the mic from Kevin Frazier and announcing (screaming) that "someday she would OWN that mic." I totally and completely despise that woman.

I can't imagine TLC continuing with her show. Even the mainstream media treats her like a laughingstock now. ROL is the only one singing her praises these days. That's gotta hurt.

Canuck said...

You know, it's almost a shame she was so short-sighted when all of this began. When I see pictures of her from a short couple of years ago, I see a fresh-faced, young mom. She would have made a great product endorser, but it's really too late now. She's no longer attractive - she looks fake, generic, and she is not aging well. These photos don't even look like that same young mom. Not to mention her dastardly personality and public relations shenanigans. I guess she got what she wanted - money. But what did she lose? Plenty, I'm thinking.

Linda said...

The woman really doesn't have some sort of magic spell over TLC. It's really true that if your ratings aren't there, they drop you. That's how things work in TV. Period. And her ratings have been sinking for quite a while now, with just little upticks here and there. But what the executives in charge of programming look at are the overall trends and she's been trending down for a while.

I knew this was coming. Anyone who can put two and two together could see this coming. The shelf-life for a reality TV star is not particularly long and she's managed to ride this gravy train longer than most, mostly due to her personal drama and continuing trainwreck aspect.

However, even that can't keep you on the air forever.

I don't normally comment on her appearance, but I'm a bit stunned at how bad she's looking. In that one pic of her "jogging" (give me a break, I've seen the video footage--she's barely lifting her damn feet), she looks for all the world like she's got a black eye. Or hasn't slept in days.

Also, and I mean this sincerely, she needs to slow down on whatever it is she's doing to make herself look so much older. I always have to remind myself she's only 35. She looks "rode hard and put up wet" as we say. Haggard. Leathery. Old. Your lifestyle shows in your face and she needs to quit tanning and smoking or whatever it is she's doing.

Not that it matters. Girlfriend won't be in the public eye much longer, I guarantee it.

Administrator said...

A perfect example? The woman I worked for had a long-running TV series that did very well for years. Then the past year or two it had a downward slump and had run its course, and it looked like it was probably going to be cancelled. However, when the axe finally fell, no one even bothered to do her the courtesy of telling her. No one from the network even called her. She heard about it through another cast member who called who had heard about it. She was very insulted, and hurt. She brought the network millions and they couldn't even be bothered to give her a phone call breaking the news to her? She refused to work for that network for years afterward, not that they cared. But that's how the business is--COLD.

It doesn't matter if you are Brad Pitt or Steven Speilberg or Kate Gosselin, when the ratings aren't there you are gone, no questions asked. Kate really thinks she's some special breed and that TLC is going to act as her own personal 401k the rest of her life.

IATK said...

The day will come sometime soon when nobody in TV land is going to want Kate in their line-up of shows, with or without the kids. She will be persona non grata in the industry and without TV, what is she going to do? The Kate fan's argument that she HAS to do this for her kids and to maintain her lifestyle is a moot point because Kate doesn't decide how long she will last in the spotlight. Only her ratings will determine that and TLC has no loyalties to her other than how much money they can make off of her. When the profits dry up, so does Kate's "career". The way things have slowed down for her, I really think that is going to be a matter of months rather than years so hopefully she's working on plan B now.

Admin, I could be wrong but I think nanny #5 might be Jamie. This link is to a TMZ story showing Kate, the kids and the nanny returning home from LA. The woman with some of the kids walking behind Kate looks like it could be Jamie.

TLC, time to let the kids go so they can get back to a "normal" life. There are kids every where to film. These are grown kids now, not little babies anymore. They said enough, so let's end it.

TLC, take a long look at KG face in the new picture "try to keep up". It says it all. She looks bad, really bad. Cameras don't lie Do you want something to happen to this mom? The stress is all over her face.

KG that is the wrong shirt for you to be wearing. You are not keeping up, and the shirt is the wrong message. Why not wear one that says FU instead. Stop sending innuendo messages.

Seriously, poor Nike. Love the shirt, but would
never wear it after this picture.

This site is good, a little to judgmental at times, and a little to much bashing on KG, but not really enough for TLC to come after.

Admin, you are pretty sharp and keep the site going well, but how did TLC try to pull your plug? And has TLC issued any subpoena's to you to pull ISP's from any of the posts?

mama mia said...

Last year when Kate wore a "try to keep up" t-shirt ROL said it was her subtle dig at all the women Jon was dating. I agree with the other posters, she does look unwell, older than her age. Maybe she is recovering from the flu? For a germaphobe her kids sure do get sick a lot.

Moose Mania said...

Oh, my gosh! She looks terrible, and it's not from "motherly" duties as the article says. What motherly duties? Something's gotta give...and soon.

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

Actually, she looks like someone that actually just ran more than 3 miles.

Funny- we runners run because it's good for us. Yet, none of us really look very "healthy" while doing it. At least I don't- I look like I'm ready to lay down for a long winter's nap... ;o)

gotyournumberKate said...

"(give me a break, I've seen the video footage--she's barely lifting her damn feet)"

I'm not a runner but I thought the same thing. Also, don't you kind of have to swing your arms for balance when running? How does she do that with that IPod cord wrapped around her hand like that?

My first thought when I saw these photos was she looked like she was crying. The last few sets of photos of her she really looks stressed out. Is her perfect little world falling apart? Being the control freak that she is this all must be driving her insane. She couldn't control this one. She can't control Jon anymore or the viewers. Hope she has a Plan B.

Administrator said...

I think the shirt is cute. And reasonably priced. I think at this stage it can't be seen as a dig on Jon, who has been with the same woman for over six months. If anything it's a self-depricating remark--Try to keep up with all the nannies I let my children get attached to. Hehe just kidding.

Kate already looked at Plan B last week...and was dismayed when she realized she had written "See Plan A." Oops.

Moose Mania said...

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

...and do you believe that she ran more than three miles? ;-)

"none of us really look very "healthy" while doing it. At least I don't- I look like I'm ready to lay down for a long winter's nap... ;o)"

----------------------=
I agree. None of us really looks healthy while we are running...more like something the cat dragged in. I'm ready to lie down for more than a long winter's nap, preferably one that will take me through to the end of spring!

That said, she really doesn't look well in that photo, and I think it's more than just exhaustion from running.

I read, I think at BM's, that TofK was to have its' first airing mid Nov. But, often they don't know what they're talking about.

I think it was Linda upthread that mentioned she looks in the pics, like she has a black eye (her right one). I noticed it also and also, it looks to me like she has a bruise on her cheek underneath that same eye.

Teehee...or she was dismayed when she realized Plan B said she'd have to get a real job now. Ooops is right.

Anon 1 said...

I enlarged the screen (ctr/+) and she definitely has a black eye and a bruise. I don't even want to specualate as to where or how she got that.

gotyournumberKate said...

I just enlarged it too and agree it defintiely looks like a black eye. Is it just me or does her neck also look bruised?

Anonymous said...

She's probably had something done cosmetically to that wonky eye. That explains her disappearance for so many days and the swelling.

JudyK said...

I agree that the black eye and bruising is cosmetic surgery related...she's been MIA for too many days.

Midnight Madness said...

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

Cosmetically? The "wonky" eye is a physical abnormality -- there is nothing that can "cosmetically" be done to correct it. We're not talking about a double chin. Correcting an eye defect such as that would require surgery... patching with surgery, or vision therapy.

I think it's really tacky and totally uncool to call attention to a "wonky" eye. Hooker heels, scarecrow hair, boob job are another thing, but she has no control over her eye. It's childish and just plain mean.

NT said...

I agree with the posters that say she has a black eye and it looks like she has had work done. Either that or the nanny decked her as she walked out the door. She must know something we don't if she is spending money on plastic surgery. I doubt that TLC would pay for that.

Oh My Gosh...look very closely at the photos

Can anyone say PHOTOSHOP!

I don't think Khate can be given credit to be capable of sending some sort of innuendo with her Nike shirt. It was probably a freebie she got somewhere along the line hoping that Nike will pick it up for an endorsement if sales go up because she is wearing it. Also lest we forget Khate actually thinks she is running her ass off, in her warped mind she sees herself as an athlete now, because she trudges down the road every once in a while and calls it running. I am sure she gets her real workouts in the basement probably with a nautilus as she does have muscle definition in her arms and legs that was not there earlier, the type of muscles you get from weights not trudging along occasionally like she does. She has also dropped a lot of weight very suddenly, recently, which could not have been accomplished in a healthy manner, that much that soon. In her mind that is doing her part (trying to look good) and she doesn't comprehend that the inside needs fixing. Just the outside. It is really kind of sad. Who knew the woman we all watched back when she had a real family, home and husband would turn into this when she hit the big time. Fame and money does not become her.

sftk said...

Administrator, I am wondering what the legal ramifications are for a publication like ROL who make up stories instead of printing the truth. Why can't Jon go after them for lies about him, such as the article about him and his step-father? How can that publication get away with making up stories?
Like others, I am sure TLC is not done with her and she will be in the spotlight again. She looks like she had some type of work done on her face and we all know Nov. is "sweeps" month and they will try to make as much money as possible off of her and the kids.

Administrator said...

Jon can go after them for libeling him. But when you're a public figure the burden of proof is on you, and you have to prove not only that what they said was a lie, but that they acted with "actual malice"--that the publication knowingly and maliciously, with "reckless disregard for the truth" published a false article about you. It is very hard to prove, but a few celebs have managed. Carol Burnette sued in the 80s when an article said she was drunk at a party. It was easy for her to prove that was a lie and that they acted with reckless disregard for the truth, since she had half a dozen witnesses who could testify that she was not acting drunk at all and was very together and appropriate. She won.

ladyblue said...

I'm just happy that the pictures lately have been of Jon and Kate and the kids seem to have some privacy since they've stopped shooting. I've heard Kate apologists claim that it wouldn't matter if the show stopped filming the kids would still have their privacy violated. I don't believe that's true.

Administrator said...

Because that's what Kate tells them, that there is no going back. That simply isn't true. People will lose interest. Kate is so full of herself, she is not so interesting that people will follow her for the rest of her life without a show airing too.

The show keeps the interest alive and when it goes the interest will wane. It already has. The photos of Kate are not as frequent, and thank goodness we have not seen very many photos of the kids this fall.

I'm just glad that we have no evidence the kids have been filming since they started school. They need to be focusing on school and friends, not a filming schedule. It's as it should be. I don't care so much if they air the Alaska episode as long as they are not using new footage to get it.

Vanessa said...

Yes, the "wonky" eye CAN be fixed with plastic surgery. A friend of mine had the same kind of droopy eye and finally saved enough money to have the surgery. It's reconstructive surgery and they "lift" the muscle, just like any other "lifting" procedure.

Midnight Madness said...

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

This is strabimus. It's possible to have "plastic" surgery so that it is "cured" cosmetically, making it APPEAR straight, but it's not a functional cure. For that, actual surgery to the eye itself is performed.

sftk said...

Thank you Administrator for answering my question about printing false stories. I realize it would take a lot of money to go after them but I would love to see Jon do it.

Vanessa said...

Then we agree Midnight Madness, it IS cosmetic surgery...I never said my friend needed a cure for her droopy eye. My friend's eye "functioned" properly, one just drooped a little, and to her it was a deformity. Kate is not cross-eyed, or wall-eyed or whatever you want to call it. If Kate "has" had surgery on her eye, it was to correct any "deformity, abnormality" she perceived, just like having a tummy tuck, lipo, breast implants etc...
