Collin and Alexis play with dog Shoka during school hours

Shoka is back. People who give up dogs should not be permitted to have them back. Who is this breeder?

But the bigger story as we see it is Collin and Alexis, sure enough the two sextuplets reportedly expelled from school, seen playing outside during school hours--lending credence to the report that they have indeed been expelled and are homeschooled now, enjoying their recess right at the house.

I am glad she I'd letting them out to play, aren't you??? And if she keeps the dog, this is the first good thing we have seen
in a long time right? The dog is probably well trained now. Let's admit good when we see it among all the saddness!

connie45 said...

I've read where several people - fans and non-fans - believe this is an old pic as the kids appear to be younger and smaller. Honestly,I have not watched this mess in so long, I cant tell.

What do you think?

PatK said...

The kids definitely looked smaller to me.

Also, how would this picture have been taken with all the new trees to block out the paps? And how is it known that the dog is back?

Trucker said...

I think it's current. That's the car they got when the show started up again.

Animal Lover said...

IF this story is true, I am disgusted beyond words. NO family dynamic that results in *six*-year-olds with rage issues (who were also apparently expelled from school) deserves to have a pet in their home. Clearly the kids are being neglected on a fundamental level. Do any of you think a DOG is going to have a fighting chance in that environment??? If the parent can't be bothered to raise the kids, what are the odds she's going to care for the dog??? Again, IF this story is true, the breeder who returned the dog should be euthenized.

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

Oh GREAT! It's bad enough that Kate can't handle her brood- now we have to worry for the safety of Shoka as well?

It would be a HUGE mistake to add a dog to that messed up family!

& THEIR PETS!

Pam said...

Well, I'm glad to see they get recess and aren't stuck inside the house with the drill sargeant all day. I don't see it as a big deal at all that they are outside while the others are in school. The other kids get recess, they just don't have stalkerazzi taking pictures of it.

fidosmommy said...

I don't think this is one of the Cadillac cars
the kids got earlier this year. There were 3 of them, and IIRC, they were all mostly black or charcol grey. They also had those "pipey thingies" on top with lights, I think. This looks like one of the cars the Cadillacs replaced.

I'm going to check on the Cadillac cars for kids.

wayward said...

How would this pic have been taken? I thought the forest that was planted in front of the orphanage prevented any long-angle pictures from being taken. Rotten food? Dogs back? Expelled kids playing outside during the day? Multiple sources freely spilling dirt when before no one used to say a peep about Kate? All of this seems like the workings of a desperate shlock cable network and it's former star, who is now just about a has-been. Something stinks and it's not a 3 day old sandwich.

fidosmommy said...

Picture of the Cadillac Escalades the kids got
earlier this year. Yep, that picture of Collin and Alexis is old.

----------

These pictures are new since the sextuplets didn't receive these cars until their sixth birthday, which was filmed for a Kate Plus 8 episode.

In an old thread, Admin originally had a pic posted (which has since been removed) but the caption still reads: "The kids paraded their new birthday presents for the cameras for the upcoming Kate Plus 8, which starts June 6."

http://www.realitytvkids.com/2010/05/unbelievable-kids-right-back-to-work.html

The radaronline link provided in this old thread will link you to the original pictures of the sextuplets riding in their new toys.

(I apologize for my typo from the previous thread. I meant to say that those pics are new, not old but somehow I didn't realize my glaring mistake until now. Sorry if I confused anyone.)

Oh Brother said...

Accusatory, as usual. Children in regular school do get breaks you know. I'm curious how you know a) at exactly what time the pictures were taken in order to determine that they were playing "during school hours" and b) what constitutes "school hours" for these kids who apparently are now home-schooled. Setting aside the fact that technically the kids don't have to be in school at all since the compulsory age is 8, elementary school kids are required to have 900 instructional minutes per year. An average school year is 180 days, which means 5 hours per day of instruction. For all you know, they start school at 7am, take a lunch break and are done by 1.

Have the chickens been seen lately?

Questions said...

How does anyone know the name of that dog? Can anyone tell them apart? Did TLC send these pics to INF with info? Something isn't right.

Ann said...

This is an OLD picture, Administrator. You should be ashamed of yourself for reprinting this as if it happened recently. Those two kids are TEENY-TINY in this picture. It is NOT a recent picture. I thought this site was FACTS.

Administrator said...

Inf is reporting school was in session not me. The point is not that children should not play! The point is to corroborate that the kids have been expelled. Thought that was obvious.

Administrator said...

Ashamed of myself? Inf is reporting the pics were taken today. It would be unethical to report the wrong date on pics. They did not get those cars until after the dogs left. Maybe the kids are small because they are not eating!

PJ's momma said...

Maybe that's the teacher's dog. I hate to think one of the dogs came back. I have a high-maintenance dog who lets me know when things are not right with him (usually by having a seizure). Pets need consistent care and affection and routine, just like humans do. Even if that's one of the kids' old cars, it doesn't mean that they don't have both sets of cars and still play with both of them. I dunno..........I hope it's an old picture.

Anonymous said...

In the Alaska episode Kate states that the kids are only 32 pounds! That's tiny for 6 year olds! So they are teeny tiny!

There were two Cadillacs (Black and Pink) and one Green Jeep Power Wheels, so yes - that is one of the cars they got for their birthday,

Must Love Dogs said...

Who knows how old this picture is, how did Chris get this picture in front of the house with them trees?

Barbara said...

Maybe I'm looking at different pictures than everyone else, but I don't see a dog in any of them. I see two very young children pushing a car, but no dog.

Anonymous said...

How would a pap get these photos if they are new? Even if he took these from the pool side of their house, wouldn't he have to go on private property to take them? Kate couldn't stand taking care of the dogs and kept them caged. If Kate brought back the dogs now, it would most likely be just an attempt to save her tanking brand.

Michelle said...

Even homeschool kids need a recess break and some fresh air, so I see no problem with that. Big problem with the dog coming back. Kate and the kids have no idea how to properly treat an animal based on what we saw previously. Another living thing for Kate to abuse and the kids to vent their rage on IMO.

On another note, my new TV Guide came today. Sunday, November 28 has Sarah Palin at 8:00, to be announced at 9:00 and a 1 hour Sister Wives special at 10:00. Hopefully they're trying to think of something better to put in that prime viewing slot between their two biggest shows other than Kate.

OK, thanks. You're right. I thought all 3 of the cars looked the same. I guess not. (I just hate it when I'm wrong!) :-)

Crabitha Codswallop said...

It does not look like a current picture to me, but Admin is posting the truth according to INF.

Preesi and Werney Gal are both saying that the dogs are back. Just FYI.

You need to click on the pictures individually to see the full shots.

Administrator said...

Since one person cannot seem to understand the point of my post, even though I again explained it here, I had to spell it out in the actual post.

The point being that seeing only Collin and Alexis outside during the day AS REPORTED BY INF, corrobates the "Collin and Alexis got expelled" rumor, and that is the only point. For cripe freaking sake, I'm tired.

Administrator said...

I highly doubt INF would sit on photos of the kids only to publish them months and months later, that doesn't make any sense. Photos are worth the most when they are current, it makes no sense to take a bunch of great photos and then never publish them. Further, what are the odds they would have a photo of Collin and Alexis never published before?

I think it is the size of the car that is making the kids look smaller than they are. The cars are actually very big and if you think of it that way the kids look the right size to me to be a current photo. And again, it would be unethical and even libelous for INF to use an old photo and then outright claim that it was taken today. Chris took them as usual, so they have a report from him confirming he took them today I assume.

Not every area of the property is shielded by trees, just that front house area. There are plenty of areas of the property that can still be seen, the kids just don't seem to play there much. It looks like they are actually pushing the car toward that long tree line.

&&&&&&&&&&&&&
I'm glad the kids are allowed to play. I'm glad the kids have their dog back because they loved her but I'm not glad for the dog whom they have no business having back after giving them up once. Fool me twice shame on me. But Kate does not get brownie points for doing what every normal warm-blooded mother should do, let her children play. You're SUPPOSED to do this kind of thing!

Administrator said...

The trees do not cover this entire huge property. Look at the video from when Jon dropped off the kids and they were crying. You can clearly see there are huge areas of the property that a pap could get photos of at the fence without trespassing. I imagine they encourage the kids to play in the back or behind the treeline, but if the kids were just driving a car around the house they might very well sometimes come out from behind the trees to be seen.

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

Is it known that KATE is letting the kids play? Is she seen in any photos? Maybe she's making her round at Target or FedEx, and has no idea that the kids are even outside. It could very well be that the nannies let them play. Since neither the nannies nor Kate is seen in the photo, we don't really know. I hope, though, that for security's sake, someone is outside supervising them.

AuntieAnn said...

Knowing Kate and her erratic rule making, the dogs are back on some kind of condition like if they don't behave the way she thinks they should, they go back...again. Besides screwing up her kids' heads and hearts by having them, then not, then getting them back again... what the hell is it doing to the dogs? They have feelings. They are loyal and loving companions. How dare she fuck with their heads too. Can't she be satisfied with screwing up human lives?

And as Animal Lover said upthread, what kind of breeder allows them back into this chaotic home where nothing is stable. Kate is the one who should be taken away in a crate.

Admin is right.

The dogs and the little cars did not exist at the Gosselin mansion at the same time.

The following is evidence to show that these recent photos are indeed new, not old:

* Sept. 2009 - The dogs are returned to the breeder.

http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20305132,00.html

* In a May 2010 thread, "Unbelievable. Kids right back to work...", Admin originally posted a photo (which has since been removed) of the sextuplets in these new cars with the following caption: "The kids paraded their new birthday presents for the cameras for the upcoming Kate Plus 8, which starts June 6."

http://www.realitytvkids.com/2010/05/unbelievable-kids-right-back-to-work.html

* May 11, 2010 - First photos of the sextuplets in these cars appear, which can still be found on radaronline.

http://www.radaronline.com/exclusives/2010/05/photos-kate-gosselin-films-new-show-kate-plus-8

http://www.radaronline.com/node/29848

* June 11, 2010 - In the first episode of Kate Plus 8, "6th Birthday Surprise", Kate talks about how she knew the kids wanted these cars and how she only got three of them because she had measured the garage space and that's all that would fit.

Starts @5:07
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sY_ByOebWkE

Therefore, the INF Daily photos are recent because those little cars didn't appear at the mansion until the sextuplets' sixth birthday, more than six months after the dogs were sent away.

(Just elaborating on my previous posts to provide evidence for those who are uncertain about the INF photos.)

RE: Kate Plus 8 Halloween special, Nov. 28th @10pm (after Sarah Palin's Alaska "Salmon Run" - no mention of the Gosselins in episode description)

From TLC site:
Kate Plus 8 (Season 2)
Gosselins, Goblins & Ghouls

It's Halloween at the Gosselin household and the kids are more excited than ever! See Kate and the kids pick out costumes, go to the pumpkin patch, and explore their spooked out basement. But Kate has one more surprise in store sure to be a scream!
----------

Season 2? Really?!

If this special/episode is part of season 2, then apparently TLC has plans for additional Kate Plus 8 specials/episodes.

From Hollywood Life:
"Despite Twist of Kate’s cancellation, TLC reps say, “Neither show has been canceled! In fact, the next Kate Plus 8 special airs Nov. 28.” They didn’t mention Twist of Kate."

Couple of points
Homeschooling don't have to follow a school clock,which is one of the advantages. Much of a regular school day is often spent on transitioning and routines that kids don't have to worry about when they are learning one to one during home school. It would be a concern if Alexis and Colin were not given time during the day to play, IMO.
As far as the dogs being back, I too have concerns for the dogs welfare and the children's welfare. If just one is back, how sad for the two. I have two dogs and they are their own "pack". We don't take one out without the other. I also worry about the children being aggressive with the dogs and the dog's snapping. The dogs have probably been much better socialized then the Gosselin children but it is still a concern

Hippie Chick said...

This dog should not be allowed back. I'm furious about this. If it makes the kids happy or not, these animals were mistreated by Kate, & I'm pissed.

Bodyguard my a$$ said...

Oh Auntie Ann! I haven't posted in awhile because I'm very content to watch Kart's house of cards collapse around her feet, but your comment that Kate should be the one taken away in a crate was PERFECT! I love your posts!

Mama mia, your passionate posts are spot on.

And Admin, you're assuming Kart's warm-blooded? Let's not jump to conclusions! :)

I love this site. Kudos to all the warm-blooded people out there who care more about the Gosselin kids than their lying, filthy, obscene, horrific, abusive birth-monster. May God bless you and the Gosselin children....and those poor, helpless dogs.

JudyK said...

OMG, this is SO PLASTIC AND SO OBVIOUS. Kate tells the kids that if they don't behave, she'll send them away like the dogs. She gets tons of bad press for that statement, and all of a sudden one of the dogs is back in a PR control attempt. Tired, tired, tired of Kate and the attempts to manipulate. It makes the situation worse, not better. Poor dog.

alyssa said...

Oh God! Do you know what this means? There will be no more pictures of the gosselin kids...from now one tere will be pictures of Alexis and Collin Gosselin, or pictures of Mady and Cara.It happened, they've been singled out.ALL the headings will now contain a child's name.Happy now sheeple? You helped kate and jon create this mess.Are yoy happy?

Mary Ann said...

Dr. Lillian Glass has a new post on her blog site. She discusses the Gosselin current issues.

SAHM said...

1. My 3 yo weighs 30 lbs and considered to be on the smaller side for his age - so if the tups only weigh 32 lbs according to comments Kate made during the Alaska trip then they are definately on the small side or malnurished.

2. If Kate is going to homeschool the two tups herself instead of using a tutor.... THEN GOD BLESS THOSE TWO TUPS. Thats really gonna put a crimp in her style though if she has to actually spend time w/ her kids. Won't leave much time for HNT (Hair, Nails, Tanning) or daily Target runs. My prediction is she will attempt to homeschool them but will get frustrated w/ it... I give her a month and we will either find out that the tutors are back or she has enrolled them somewhere else. Also, does one have to be licensed or "trained" when it comes to homeschooling in PA or can anyone just teach their kids at home?? You would think that if a parent wants to homeschool their kid, they would need some sort of training or something.

3. As for the dog... we all know Kate doesn't take care of it... that's icky! I am sure one of the many nannies have been assigned that task as well as the chickens.

SAHM said...

Wait for it, wait for it.... she will be making the rounds soon on all the talk shows crying poor again...... It will be all Jon's fault for continually taking her back to court to get the kids off tv making her rack up major legal debt. I wouldn't be surprised if she states again that Jon isn't paying his c/s.

Like Perez mentions.... she needs to get a real job and an attitude adjustment.

Dan said...

If the dogs are back, it is only as part of a power play. "I can banish you, and I can bring you back. I am all-powerful!"

Do I have to state explicitly how vicious this is? Everything this parent does is intended to confirm her control over these children and their world.

And what are the chances that the dogs will be allowed to stay this time? Are they going to be any less trouble this time around? Or are they just a feeble attempt to make this mother look human before the November 28 hearing?

And no, those dogs should NOT be back in that house. Children with rage issues should not have animals within striking range. The dogs WILL be hit, they WILL be abused. The children don't know anything else.

NT said...

I also think this is an old pic . They do look small and I don't see cold hearted Kate taking back those dogs. They're not dressed very warm. What was the temp in Pa. on wednesday? I think INF has some splaining to do!!!

Count on it, the dogs are back at this particular time because a court date is coming up in less than 2 weeks and Kate has had a lot of bad press lately. This is to convince the judge that the kids are better off at home with Kate -- you know, the huge house, the huge yard, all their toys, yada, yada, yada. She thinks the dogs will clean up her image.

TLC is up to their old tricks. Trying to make Kate relevant again. So on the 28th they are placing Kate smack in the middle of their two hottest shows right now. Makes perfect sense for this worthless cable station.

What's next? said...

Surfing and reading a psychology website and under the topic of family therapy I found this which I feel is pertinent to this topic:

EMOTIONAL MALTREATMENT

(belittling; screaming; threats; inconsistent parental responses; family violence; etc.)

Note that even dog bites can be a sign of emotional maltreatment. Why? Well, remember that dogs are pack animals and are very sensitive to each other’s status within the pack. A dog that bites a child may perceive the child as being lower in status than itself because it has witnessed the child being maltreated by other family members.

Here's a link to the website in case anyone is intersted:

Thank you! You said what I was trying to say but so much better.

Bodyguard my a$$ said...

It's so strange how TLC jacks around with their "seasons". One time an interviewer ask Kate how many years the kids had been on TV and Kate carefully said, "We've filmed five seasons." Well, the kids were barely five years old at the time and we know the show didn't start at the time of their birth. So TLC uses the words 'seasons' in a way we've never seen before. It's all smoke and mirrors to deflect from the fact that those kids were working more than full time and did over 150 shows in three years. Calling it Season 5 was a pile of BS. She is sick and evil!

So Kate plus 8 has been on a few months and they're already calling it Season Two? I wonder if that means they've renegotiated Kate's compensation based on ratings. So Season Two means Kate is making a lot less money per episode than she did in so-called Season One. I'm just wondering, because after so few episodes I can't imagine why else they would randomly call this new Halloween "Special" Episode 1 of Season Two.

As far as Kate's Halloween surprises sure to be a scream? There's nothing surprising or interesting about the screaming on that show. It's over-the-top annoying and disturbing, not to mention BORING!

PASS.
EPIC FAIL.

Oh...I am not giving Kate brownie points at all!!! I am just glad that for this moment, Collin and Alexis were playing outside, without having to work, with their long lost dog. Kate wouldn't at this point get any recogniztion from me unless I it was confirmed she was undergoing intensive therapy.

Bodyguard my a$$ said...

You know, Kate has been getting away with branding herself as some kind of supermom for years while we all knew Jon did everything while she sat on her ass and bitched...and travelled first class with Purse Boy.

We knew it would come crashing down someday, but we didn't know when. Basically, the people in the media are a bunch of cowards and lemmings (Baba Wawa, Kelly Ripa, Meredith, Elisabeth, blah blah blah). When Eric Roberts spoke out...THANK YOU ERIC!...finally it was ok to say, "Hey, the Emporer has no clothes", (well, except for a few pair of CFM heels) and people started piling on her. When Eric called her a child abuser, eventhough he's not exactly A-List or high profile, I really hoped this would be a turning point. Then the D-List lemmings started piling on (Perez, other small gossip sites). Suddenly, it's ok to tell the truth about Take. The Wizard of Oz was just a wimpy little coward, and Supermom is just a trampy, grifting, lying child abuser. The curtain made of smoke and mirrors has been pulled wide open. Now the losers who defended her in the media are jumping on the anti-Kate bandwagon. (Welcome aboard, but what the hell took you so long?? Did you finally watch an episode?)

Ladies and Gentleman, Take is no longer the flavor of the month. Granted, it was a REALLY LONNNG MONTH. I don't expect any of those phony media people to give her an outlet to whine about her bills. If she was stupid and white-trash enough to blow through her money, why should the public feel any sympathy? So Kate might have to get a job? Well, boo f-ing hoo.

I really think it's over.

At least that is my fervent prayer.

Karen said...

I wonder who is picking up the doggie do do considering that was Jon's job to clean up the yard? Thanks, admin. for the update. The kids do look small, but people who have seen them in person do say that the kids are very small for being 6 1/2 yrs. old. I still believe we are being played at every turn where the Gosselins are concerned.

my9cats said...

How about Steve being the mole?
It might be a quiet revenge.
You never know...

Livvy said...

The "source" could be just about anyone.

Could be anyone that anyone of the 8 said something to. A classmate. Classmate goes home and tells a parent who either tells or confides in another. Example, Steve taking this kids trick or treating. One kid, innocently talking to a classmate about holloween and saying Mom was asleep.

Could be a pissed off parent of a bullied child. Parent may have felt the school wasn't acting to correct the problem.

Could be neighbors (not you WG), tutors. Small town, word gets around.

Could be a former nanny, any one of contractors, maintenance people that are at the house all the time. Thats a large house that probably requires a lot of folks keeping it up.
Oh!! My bad!!! How did I forget Kate does it all.

Could be a combination of any of these. Once one spoke out, others may feel comfortable doing the same.

Could be for $$$$ or someone truly hoping to help the 8.

The list of suspects is wide ranging.

Bodyguard my a$$ said...

OK, one last thing then I'm off to my real life.

During the divorce, when Jon wanted the kids off the air and Kate and TLC went on a fame-whore media rampage bashing Jon, a male interviewer, from ET I think, asked Kate when it will be enough. How long did she plan to be in the public eye? Kate answered, "As soon as my kids are finished with college, you'll never see me again." Such brazen, ballsy ego. Can you imagine? My jaw dropped to the floor! She just assumed it was all in her hands; that her fans would never get sick of her or her kids. I don't even say "See you next week" to anyone without adding, "God willing". I just don't have the nerve to test fate like that. All you need is a cancer diagnosis to never assume another day, or take even tomorrow for granted.

That's why I tend to believe the stories about her spending. I know a lot of her splurges were comped, but her lifestyle is incredibly expensive. And she, in her out-of-this-world vanity, thought she was going to be a famous actress...that SHE would decide when her so-called career would end.

Sandra Bullock, Reese Witherspoon, Angelina Jolie, Jen Aniston, Courtney Cox, Drew Barrymore all start their own production companies so that they can be assured of acting jobs. No-talent, brash, ignorant, unpleasant Kate Gosselin thought acting jobs would just be handed to her because she wanted them. Such gross vanity. It's just mind-boggling. I never forgot that.

Kate, it's not up to you. The fat lady has not only started singing, she's on her encore.

Bye Kate. Kiss the kids. You'd be living in your parents basement without them.

sftk said...

The promo about the Halloween show and the surprise that is sure to be a scream will most likely be the kids being reunited with the dog or dogs. TLC is in overdrive to promote Kate in a new, kinder mode which we pretty much know is a farce.
With all the negative press lately, they must be "conferring" with Kate 24/7 to try and salvage something.

I also wonder why there is a direct link to INFDaily which pays Chris's salary and makes the site so popular. If we stay away from the press sites, they will loose money and readers which will help keep the kids out of the public eye.

Lee said...

What the "sheeple" think no longer matters. The only questions left are "Where are the children going to live?" and "With whom?"

Vanessa said...

kate's got more on her plate than she can chew. Never mind the dogs and homeschooling (are both dogs back?) I think the kids should be in therapy to treat their mental well being. The ABCs and 123s should be at the bottom of their list of things, ONLY for the time being. Don't RE-introduce another new element to their already confused world.

Tess said...

Jessica,@INF, confirmed this morning that the photos of the children with the dog are current.
She also stated that it was taken on Tuesday of this week (a school day). This indicates that the expulsion story is true.
---
The breeder should have his breeder's license taken away for allowing the dog(s) to be returned to Kate.
I am very serious.

--------
@Oh Brother...The school in which the Gosselin 2 were expelled from in October consists of a seven hour day, not five. An average public elementary school day is 6 hours long. Yes, you are correct that public schools have a 180 day schedule, but this private school has a squeezed their school year into a shorter amount of time, thus the longer school day.
Factor in the almost 2 hours (round trip) on the bus and you have a VERY LONG 9 hour day for a child. Perhaps a half-day Kindergarten would have been a better choice for the sextuplets.
----
As for Kate being the one doing the homeschooling, all reports indicate that she has hired someone to do it. Thank God. Let's all hope and pray that whomever is doing it is well trained and certified.

It might be a quiet revenge.

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

Good point my9cats!!
I also thought that maybe the dog is a neighbor's? Is it for sure their old dog? I really really hope not. Again, I'm pissed if it is. As an animal lover & member of PETA, this is wrong on so many levels. This dog is in for some major problems. Kate SUCKS with animals. And the kids are no better. What happens when one of the kids gets too rough & the dog snaps at him or her? Will Kate put it down? It's won't be the dog's fault!!

PA Mom ALSO said...

I also think this is an old pic . They do look small and I don't see cold hearted Kate taking back those dogs. They're not dressed very warm. What was the temp in Pa. on wednesday?

Low 60s, sunny, and very windy.

Bodyguard my a$$ said...

She just assumed it was all in her hands; that her fans would never get sick of her or her kids.

And she, in her out-of-this-world vanity, thought she was going to be a famous actress...that SHE would decide when her so-called career would end.

No-talent, brash, ignorant, unpleasant Kate Gosselin thought acting jobs would just be handed to her because she wanted them. Such gross vanity. It's just mind-boggling. I never forgot that.

Kate, it's not up to you. The fat lady has not only started singing, she's on her encore.

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

Don't forget that Vanity Fair article, either. ("Nobu, Nobu, I want Nobu!") You know, the one that came out soon after the divorce? The interviewer said something like "Kate is a huge story for the moment". Kate seemed highly offended, and scoffed "For the MOMENT?" She really did think it wouldn't be over till she said it was. Massive control-freak.

XYZed said...

The return of the dog(s) will be part of an upcoming show, no doubt. TLC probably convinced Kate it would help improve her image.

Kate Plus 8 (Season 2)
Gosselins, Goblins & Ghouls

It's Halloween at the Gosselin household and the kids are more excited than ever! See Kate and the kids pick out costumes, go to the pumpkin patch, and explore their spooked out basement. But Kate has one more surprise in store sure to be a scream!

Midnight Madness said...

Kate, it's not up to you. The fat lady has not only started singing, she's on her encore.

*********************8

We can only hope. However, I'm not so sure she's ever going away, not if she can help it. I don't know if the lady has even started putting on weight, let alone singing. I just don't see her going away any time soon. We've all been misled into thinking so many times that this was going to happen, and she's been dragged back into life each time. Kind of like Michael Myers in "Halloween."

How does Chris get these photos? Does he camp out for eight hours in his car by the fence, waiting for a photo, on the remote chance that the kids are going to go outside? This would seem horribly boring, just sitting there waiting from morning until evening. Or, does someone in the house call him and tell him that the kids are going outside to play? If this is true, it kind of defeats the whole purpose of planting all of those trees.

Freddy Kreuger said...

))))))))))))))))

Let me guess. We're going to all scream when we find out that the cap we've seen her wear is attached to a wig, and that she's lost all of her hair due to excessive bleaching and weaving. She's going to pull off the cap and reveal a big, bald, shining head -- just in time for Halloween...anything to scare the kids and give them nightmares.

alyssa said...

Here's my version of synopsis.
It's Halloween(for the first time EVER!) at the Gosselin orphanage and the kids(especially recently expelled ones but the ones allegedly on probation) are more excited than ever(except for the 5 months period they didn't have to film at all).See Kate and the kids pick out costumes(for three houes during school hours,conveniently providing enough footage for the show), go to a pumpkin patch(conveniently running towards the camera for 20 minutes before heading back home) and explore their spooked out basemen(poor thing is still traumatised from Kate's dancing).But Kate has one more surprise in store(the dogs are back to keep the kids company when they're send away) sure to be a scream(Here's my scream: DO NOT WATCH!)

MickeyMcKean said...

"We're suddenly getting a lot of reports that most people would be unlikely to know unless they were actually at the house. I wonder if that nanny who recently quit is the mole. Or even a current nanny."

When I first heard the Halloween night story - where Kate was sleeping and Steve took kids trick or treating - it seemed to me that Steve could actually be the source and he was making extra money for his family while he can since the show is tanking.

My second thought was that it could be Steve's wife Gina. IF Steve is with Kate, what better way to get even than to spill the beans on the other woman and get some extra spending money before the holidays?

Hippie Chick said...

Bodyguard My A$$, you make some great points! I can't believe she thought she would be famous forever. I had posted that sometime ago on another blog myself. I found it quite amusing that she thought this gravy train would just keep rolling along. She's delusional to think that a "reality TV personality" would have staying power. They never do. Unless she was up there with the Pacino's, De Niro's, Streep's & Julia Robert's of the world, she ain't shit. Sorry Kate, your on TLC, your on reality TV (do we have to keep reminding you of that fact?), & your a horrible human being. I really think it's funny that she thought she has (or had) staying power. I can't name on one hand any reality TV people who are still relevant & make headlines after X amount of time. She may have stayed longer than most because of her kids & her shenanigans (unfortunately), but her time is most certainly up.

Moose Mania said...

Bonnie, over at Hollywood Life..."According to a new report, Kate is blowing through the fortune she’s made on TV, and her income-generating prospects are thinning faster than Jon Gosselin’s hair." PopEater's reporting she's gone through millions.

So, does that mean that she only has three million left (let's have a pity party) or nothing left in her purse to pay the bills?

Sigh.

It will never end. Do we really need a Season 2 of Kate Plus 8? Seriously, TLC? SERIOUSLY?!

Despite the dismal ratings (although average ratings for other TLC shows), it's probably the sponsors who are willing to promote themselves on Kate Plus 8 that's keeping this show alive, more freebie trips and activities! Or, Kate/Figure 8 accepted an enormous budget cut to keep this show on the air. Would she accept a pay-cut as low as the Jersey Shore cast ($30,000/episode for Season 3) which has an average of over 5 million viewers?

I smell a Thanksgiving, Gosselin style special.

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

I'll wager that a disgruntled ex-employee is "the mole" releasing dirty Gosselin gossip...

Regardless, Kate & TLC can take the show and shove it.

Nothing is going to get me to ever watch Kate + 8 ever again (or any TLC show for that matter). Not returning dogs, nor a kinder, gentler Kate, or a big Gosselin wedding or birth, or adoption, or Jon returning, or more expensive trips, or whatever fanciful package TLC tries to regurgitate.

They blew it big time with me.

Remember folks, they are only interested in ratings, and are counting on curious viewers tuning in. TLC is probably betting that by "piggie-backing" Kate + 8 after Sarah Palin's show, that Sarah's viewers will stick around for Kate and her 8. Don't fall for it.


Cancel the damn show already,
BOYCOTT KATE + 8-
FREE THE GOSSELIN KIDS AND DOGGIE TOO!

If it's either of them, they are despicable people. There are eight children being harmed if this is an act of vengeance.

TLC ship is sinking said...

With the uncertainty of the longevity of her show (which is the source of most of her income) and her career, it was an unwise decision to bring the dog(s) back. With all her Kate-spenditures, does she really want to add caring for dogs to the list?

Even if the Gosselin kids love their dogs and want them back, can the family financially support them for the long-haul?

Many struggling families who have faced foreclosure and/or financial hard-ships have reportedly abandoned their pets because they can no longer afford to feed and care for them.

With rumors swirling about Kate's expensive tastes and dwindling fortune, I would hate to see those Gosselin kids go through losing their dogs again. (I could see Kate giving up the chickens and the dogs before having to give-up her mansion, if she needed to start downsizing her current lifestyle.)

Betsy said...

Well according to Radar Kartzilla will serving up her Salmonella bird this Thanksgiving to her 8. Guess Jon agreed to having the kids over the day after. Too bad cause we know who the real cook in that house was and it wasn't Kartzilla.

I just want to mirror what someone already mentioned upthread: How do the paps know that is Shoka? I don't know about them, but I have no idea which dog is which. Chris works with INF Daily, correct? Looks like he's still on TLC's payroll. Now that the whole world knows two kids were expelled, it's back to normal with the daily, pre-arranged pap photos.

Now that the cat's out of the bag, the dogs were brought back and will probably be kept in crates again in that house of horrors. If Kate really wanted the dogs returned, she would have done it months ago without TLC's cameras filming them as props in yet another contrived episode. She'll use the dogs and threats of returning them again as a means of controlling her children. If Kate is feeding her children stale food, how can she afford to buy dog food? Hope the dogs like rotten lunch meat and moldy bread.

Must Love Dogs said...

Those are old pics of them kids. No way would this dweeb have the nerve to take back dogs she gave away over a year ago. Wouldn't be fair to them animals, she just couldn't give them dogs a stable home after Jon left. What makes her think she has the right to them dogs after a year and half later?

Of course she wanted the kids on Thanksgiving, because she would be all alone otherwise. It is the only family that hasn't abandoned her yet. But, just give it time.

Sunday, November 28 has Sarah Palin at 8:00, to be announced at 9:00 and a 1 hour Sister Wives special at 10:00. Hopefully they're trying to think of something better to put in that prime viewing slot between their two biggest shows other than Kate.


The only way to get more viewers for Kate's show is to sandwich it between the two BIGGEST shows on TLC right now, Sarah Palin's Alaska and Sister Wives. Pretty desperate and transparent on TLC's part.

Bodyguard my a$$ said...

Lorrie, I don't remember the part of the Vanity Fair article where Kate scoffed about her being only "the story of the moment". But it sure sounds like Klompin' Katie. In that article she came across like a spoiled, vapid 5-year old.

Dream on, Katie Kreider. It's over, and it's totally out of your control. Your kids hate you, most of America hates you, and bringing a dog into your concentration camp to be tortured some more isn't going to help your image. Too little too late, you monster.

It's a beautiful day :0)

I can understand INF's annoyance, Chris was there he took them Tuesday, they said so, and people still insist it's all one big conspiracy theory.

Sometimes you have to fight tooth and nail to get folks to believe the truth, which gets tiring.

If that's the case, one has to wonder what they'll do for ratings when the next episode is ready to air. Maybe they'll have Kate drowning kittens?

I think at some point, sooner or later, WE have to see that, even in spite of the less than stellar ratings, TLC is still shoving Khate down our collective throats. I have no illusions of all the Khate blogs shutting down, but if we're honest, ya gotta wonder if WE are the ones keeping her going. There's just no other explanation that I can come up with. IF we stopped talking about her, clicking on the links about her, the rag mags and gossip sites would stop talking about her. I just wish 'we' here could come up w/something or someone more relevant, interesting, exciting to talk about, discuss, rag on, etc., other than Khate.

I thought the pics were taken then, but if they were taken on Tuesday, I certainly wouldn't have let my kids outside then. I was chilly, windy, and rained much of the day, and not just sprinkles.

So the bitch brings the dogs (she hated) back.I have to ask...WTF is wrong with that breeder? He really denied these dogs a chance at finding a loving and caring family only to send them back to be abused again???
Instead of bonding with a new family they spent most of last year locked up awaiting thier return to the gosselin detention center?Are you fricking kidding me?

Kate dosent want these dogs.Kate dosent have the compassion to treat or care for her own children the right way.What makes this breeder think she'll care for the dogs?
One dog tried to eat his way out of his cage...another one was being hit with a bat by the kids!!! Again...what is wrong with this breeder? He sould be ashamed of himself.I do believe these dogs were handed a death sentence.Poor doggies!!!

Gosselin Dementor said...

Is the recent gossip/rumors leaked by TLC or possibly Kate's PR team?

As November sweeps were near, some of us started speculating what ostentatious drama TLC/Kate would come up to drum more media attention and garner more viewers to increase ratings.

She was noticeably absent/quiet throughout September and October, and people speculated if she was undergoing more plastic surgery or filming the ill-fated Twist of Kate.

Then, we get the surprise tweet from Jon regarding a secretive court case and how his kids are suffering from emotional/behavioral problems due to filming.

Now, all of a sudden, it's like a Gosselin volcano erupted - where more turn-out-to-be-true rumors come out regarding the sextuplets.

That not-so-quiet approach led to dismal ratings for the Alaskan special, and now we are bombarded again with various Gosselin rumors just as TLC announces another Kate Plus 8 special.

The divorce drama drew in massive ratings for the Gosselins, guess they figured kid drama could possibly do the same. It's the kids that people want to watch, not Kate. Might as well as use the kids to draw the viewers again.

This won't stop until TLC sucks the innocent souls out of these kids.

Vanessa said...

No, TLC couldn't have "made up" the expulsion, BUT in their eyes, it's "reality tv gold". They will use for it's "shock" value. Maybe they won't incorporate it in the show per say, but it's being used to drum up viewers, this is the path reality tv has taken. BUT this seems to be the only reality tv show that is using CHILDREN as the stars of their 3 ring circus ALONG with their ever so wonderful mother.

TLC stinks said...

I think the snitch about her sleeping in the van on Halloween was a parent. Adults are out everywhere on Halloween with their kids, and Steve with a pack of kids and the big blue van is easy to spot. IMO, she was asleep in the van from too much wine at dinner. There you go....that's why Steve is her handler. Steve would not snitch because "protecting" her is his bread and butter, but when this gig is over, he will make a mint with a book deal. That's my theory.

Well, if this happens, someone at TLC is covering their rear ends to keep Kate on the air. I can't figure it out other than TLC loves the controversy, but at what price? We viewers have the power to make this end. No corporation should put children at risk like TLC does. Save the 8!

*****************************************
Anon1, I've been thinking the same thing. I have to admit that I love reading all of the discussions about Kate and her antics. Like many have said before, it's like trying to look away from a bad car wreck. You want to look away, but you can't believe something so horrible actually happened! Same thing with Kate - it's so fascinating and unbelievable that a person could be so awful.
BUT - I have no doubt that our discussions about her help keep her in the spotlight. I wonder if we truly want her to go away, because we really enjoy the conversations she generates. I would love for all the anti-Gosselin blogs to set a date on which everything would come to a screeching halt. It will end eventually, why not just make the decision to do our part in ending her fame? I don't expect that to happen, so I guess I'm going to have to make the decision to quit reading/posting/clicking. If we truly care about the privacy of those 8 children, we need to give it to them completely. Talking about them - even out of concern - is still talking about them. It kind of reminds me of the little old ladies in church who manage to share juicy info about people in the form of a "prayer request." In real life I'm not a busybody, poking my nose into other people's private matters. If I'm really honest with myself, that's exactly what I'm doing when I read the Gosselin blogs. I feel so badly for those kids, but LOTS of kids have horrible upbringings. When the cameras go away, they will still have a pathetic excuse for a mother. Talking about it on blogs won't change that. I enjoy catching up on everyone's comments each day. I'm just starting to question the true impact that has.

Oh, sheesh, it just never stops with Khate. desperate for a storyline for their fake reality show. radar has the story:

http://www.radaronline.com/exclusives/2010/11/kate-gosselin-brings-back-one-family-dogs

Last fall, Jon and Kate Gosselin’s divorce got even more heated over the issue of the family’s two dogs Shoka and Nola who were sent to a dog breeder
for an indefinite amount of time. Now, RadarOnline.com has confirmed that Kate is making good on a recent promise to bring at least one of the dogs back home.

PHOTOS: Pictures Of The Gosselin Dogs

In September 2009, Jon went on a rampage against Kate regarding the dogs, blaming her for not taking care of them in his absence. At the time, RadarOnline.com spoke to their dog breeder Jeff Christopher who explained that Kate simply wanted to make sure the dogs’ training was up to par. "Kate is an orderly kind of person," Christopher told RadarOnline.com. "She was never concerned about the dogs, she just wanted to train them, and so this time with the dogs gives me extra time to train them. They're at the perfect age for training, but they're family dogs so their training won't be that advanced."

PHOTOS: Jon Says Goodbye To His Dogs

A source tells RadarOnline.com exclusively that Kate has been paying for Shoka and Nola’ s boarding and that Shoka is now fully trained and returning home.

“The kids are thrilled,” the source says.

The happy reunion can be seen on a special Kate Plus 8 episode centering on Halloween which airs on TLC at 10 pm on November 28.

Remember folks, they are only interested in ratings, and are counting on curious viewers tuning in. TLC is probably betting that by "piggie-backing" Kate + 8 after Sarah Palin's show, that Sarah's viewers will stick around for Kate and her 8. Don't fall for it.


Cancel the damn show already,
BOYCOTT KATE + 8-
FREE THE GOSSELIN KIDS AND DOGGIE TOO!

I also think this is an old pic . They do look small and I don't see cold hearted Kate taking back those dogs. They're not dressed very warm. What was the temp in Pa. on wednesday?

----------------------
Low 60s, sunny, and very windy.

Oh...I am not giving Kate brownie points at all!!! I am just glad that for this moment, Collin and Alexis were playing outside, without having to work, with their long lost dog. Kate wouldn't at this point get any recogniztion from me unless I it was confirmed she was undergoing intensive therapy.

This dog should not be allowed back. I'm furious about this. If it makes the kids happy or not, these animals were mistreated by Kate, & I'm pissed.

RE: Kate Plus 8 Halloween special, Nov. 28th @10pm (after Sarah Palin's Alaska "Salmon Run" - no mention of the Gosselins in episode description)

From TLC site:
Kate Plus 8 (Season 2)
Gosselins, Goblins & Ghouls

It's Halloween at the Gosselin household and the kids are more excited than ever! See Kate and the kids pick out costumes, go to the pumpkin patch, and explore their spooked out basement. But Kate has one more surprise in store sure to be a scream!
----------

Season 2? Really?!

If this special/episode is part of season 2, then apparently TLC has plans for additional Kate Plus 8 specials/episodes.

From Hollywood Life:
"Despite Twist of Kate’s cancellation, TLC reps say, “Neither show has been canceled! In fact, the next Kate Plus 8 special airs Nov. 28.” They didn’t mention Twist of Kate."

The trees do not cover this entire huge property. Look at the video from when Jon dropped off the kids and they were crying. You can clearly see there are huge areas of the property that a pap could get photos of at the fence without trespassing. I imagine they encourage the kids to play in the back or behind the treeline, but if the kids were just driving a car around the house they might very well sometimes come out from behind the trees to be seen.

Count on it, the dogs are back at this particular time because a court date is coming up in less than 2 weeks and Kate has had a lot of bad press lately. This is to convince the judge that the kids are better off at home with Kate -- you know, the huge house, the huge yard, all their toys, yada, yada, yada. She thinks the dogs will clean up her image.

TLC is up to their old tricks. Trying to make Kate relevant again. So on the 28th they are placing Kate smack in the middle of their two hottest shows right now. Makes perfect sense for this worthless cable station.
