New Year's Resolutions

What's Kate's New Year's Resolution? To be more grateful for all the gifts she's been handed? To find a real job? To be a mother? To stop whining?

Nope, according to an insider, it's to find a man. Said the insider,

"She thinks she is a fantastic catch. Not only does she think she has never looked better, Kate also now has a ton of money. As far as she's concerned, there is nothing not to like. She's beautiful, rich and thinks of herself as very easy to get along with."

What are your resolutions?

Hey I thought Kate didn't have any money! I thought she was a can of spam away from having to send the children to an orphanage. Now that she wants a man she suddenly is loaded again. How convenient for her!

Michelle said...

Yep, if I was a single mom doing it all on my own (rolls eyes) with eight kids in elementary school, two of whom are having such major issues they've been expelled, finding a man would be priority number 1 (rolling eyes again).

Seriously, my own resolution is to never click on a Kate link or story again. I quit watching the show well over a year ago and am now going to try to go the complete apathy route someone suggested. Total disinterest is the only thing that will get rid of her.

Sadly, even when we the public are rid of her, those poor kids are stuck with her. God help them.

SAHM said...

I think i just threw up a little in my mouth!!

SAHM said...

Had to laugh... i watched the "christmas" episode from a year or so ago when they still lived at the old house and laughed at the end when Kate mentions the kids remembering traditions and looking back and hoping that the memories are filled w/ less stress.... wonder what the kids will remember from this Christmas? Also wonder if the kids got their sticky buns and hot chocolate?????

Mimi to 3 said...

I'm still laughing. She wants a man? What man on this planet would get within a mile of her (other than the ones being paid, of course)? She is so toxic and everyone has seen her nastiness and even if someone hasn't, it won't take 5 minutes for a man to see her for what she is and run as fast as he can in the opposite direction. So, she thinks she beautiful -- wrong. She has fake everything and her hair looks like straw, but there is that look on her face of arrogance gone amok. She's rich? well, sure she has some money, but she is a total tightwad. She looks better than she ever has? Gag me. You can dress up a pig but you can NEVER change the inside of this woman. She is disgusting. Good luck on these resolutions Kate. No doubt she will go after this with everything she's got, but her reputation precedes her.

Administrator said...

Maybe she could get a doormat only one that says "man" instead of welcome.

suze said...

My resolution is to stop snarking and get a life. Who will join me?

wayward said...

Ok.... this, if nothing else proves that Kate lives in some delusional fantasy world. She has no friends or contact with her family. Yet she feels she's easy to get along with???? hahaha

Beautiful? Nah. If the Grinch and Cruella De Ville mated, Kate would be their spawn. Remember how she said in the photoshopped People article how some guy slowed down while she was jogging and said "whoever has you is sure lucky" Who says that?!.... no one says that! She completely made that up. In her shallow mind, she has surgically altered and tanned herself into what SHE considers attractive and she is perplexed as to why the men aren't flinging themselves at her doorstep. To the point where she has to fabricate male attention to validate herself. She is so obsessed with physical features (and has been since the beginning of the show) she is oblivious to the fact that men don't always use the eye to find a woman attractive. At the beginning, the show depicted how she completely emasculated and bullied her husband. When he left, the kids got the brunt of her wrath. Kate is a bitch. It doesn't matter how beautiful a woman is on the outside, if a man sees that she is seemingly unable to show love, kindness and compassion to children and animals, that is a HUGE red flag to stay far, far away.

If Kate got some intensive therapy (although it's my understanding NPD isn't easily cured) took her family off TV and lived a private life, she might find a man. But since she doesn't feel she has any emotional issues and the only acceptable way of making a living to her is to force her children to appear on a reality TV show, she can count on remaining a single woman for a long time.

Deen said...

Aw, come on. There's got to be a guy out there whose dream woman is a characterless, self-obsessed, child-abusing, nasty-tempered and delusional shrew.

Maybe she can use her children's hard-earned money to buy one.

What a sad, sorry excuse for a mother.

Count me in! I've already cut way back and only peek occasionally. Feels good when I'm not thinking about Kate.

Happy New Year, everyone.

In the words of the great MR. T,
"I pity the fool"....

kate's scary said...

As far as she's concerned, there is nothing not to like....and thinks of herself as very easy to get along with.

And therein lies the problem. Absolute denial. She's going to be stunned when there isn't a man knocking down her door on her timetable.

Kelly said...

I think Kate has an excellent chance of landing a man for 2011. A couple of good suggestions for her would be

1. Ted Kennedy
2. Robert Byrd
3. John Murtha

Hey, even Michael Vick could come over and spend some time with Shoka.

Other than these choices, I think that most self respecting, man card carrying males would rather have their doo dads taped to a running belt sander than spend a second with this witch.

Virginia said...

Administrator said... Maybe she could get a doormat only one that says "man" instead of welcome.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Are you kidding? We know her doormat says "SCRAM". Including the one in front of her bedroom door, because "no entry upon penalty of severeness" didn't fit.

LisaNH said...

Kate is an attractive woman on the outside. If someone who didn't know the real Kate saw her, they'd probably say what a pretty woman she is. However, I find her ugly because of what's inside her brain and her heart (if she has either). She is mean, self absorbed, cheap and vain, to name just a few flaws. She is simply not a nice person.

Sport said...

Who would seriously want to be with her? Honestly.

As a single father myself I can promise you she is the OPPOSITE of what we are looking for in a woman, friend or partner.

Half of the fun of a new relationship is the unknown. The awkward dating phase as you get to know each other, find similarities and also differences. Quiet moments and gentle conversation as you decide if this is someone you want to continue to see.

With kHATE we have all seen what the hell she is ... and it is frightening!

At her age, most likely she would be with a man who is possibly divorced, and maybe has kids. Do you really think any man with kids would want HER around them!?! Laughable!

You never see her smile. She probably cant cook or function without a staff of helpers around her. She cant parent and appears to have ZERO common sense with everyday things. She draws an obscene amount of attention on herself. She is nasty, inside and out.

Would she bring her 'bodyguard' with her on a date?

She is a laughing stock - and apparently her and the ROL regulars are the only ones who cant see this and admit it.

She is doomed in future relationships and will only draw someone interested in her fame and obtaining some for himself. Some creepy gold diggers, likely someone with no kids who cant recognize what she is. It won't be pretty, but then again neither is she so it should be great.

I pity any man who willingly gets involved with her. She could only ever attract a man via some contrived TV show.

suze said...

Kate needs a man strong enough to put up with her shit and stand up to her divaness. Jon is a wuss and couldnt handle her. I see her with someone at some point, but he's gotta have a big personality with strong self-esteem. No wallflowers allowed. Hopefully the kids will be older or out of the house by then because I imagine it would quite a loud and dramatic relationship. It would probably make a good reality show in the future. Kate + Mate. heeee

roxyhelen said...

My New Years resolution is to get into medical school next year,so wish me luck everybody :)

I was away this week, I always spend Christmas with my parents and grandparents and cousins at my grandparents'. When I came back and saw all the posts I was stunned...

It's so sad that it didn't even occur to me that the children would film their entire Christmas break.I thought they would film Christmas Day and maybe NY's Eve but...I couldn't believe they would be dragged in Phillie as soon as the school ended.I should have, but I didn't :( I find it unbelievable!

When will those poor kids get a break? I am disgusted! I will not even comment on Kate's NY resolution...

Kate Don't Rate said...

I was just reading Admin's Recap of "Inside Kate's World" from June, 2010. Get a load of this:

"There are the kids in their highchairs coloring. I thought this was supposed to be about Kate. But I guess they worried if they didn’t show the kids’ cute little faces now and again people would lose interest. Kate attempts to teach them a few simple shape lessons. To show us she is perfectly capable of home schooling them when she finally has to pull them out of school permanently to have enough time to film them."

Ironic! Psychic!! (Apparently kHate wasn't teaching the Triangle shape that day.)

Holly Holidays said...

SAHM said...

I think i just threw up a little in my mouth!!

$$$$$$$$$$$$

Where else does one throw up? In their rear end? LOL!!

Ingrid said...

I think that the only kind she will find is a smooth-talking con man who wants his claws in her AND the kids' money. (if the kids have any) Sometimes a husband will offer to 'invest' for his dear wife to supposedly increase her money even more and loses or steals it all! I don't mind if she goes broke but hate to see any kids' money taken. (like I said-if there is any put aside.)

PatK said...

Even men who like to hook up with and live off of rich women wouldn't be able to stand being around Kate for any length of time.

Troy Chula Vista said...

Good morning all. I just checked out another blog (BM) and get this, now they are blaming TLC for making the kids look sad AND more importantly, making Kate look like a bad mother!
Plus they say INF has been caught in lies? on the sources?

They managed to call out each "defector" or hater in one sentence, while admitting that there are more haters than fans.. huh?

I think admin said best.... DEFLECT DEFLECT

Melissa said...

I don't believe any of that BS about finding a man. It's just more spin. Steve has been living in the basement for years now. Steve, a real stand-up guy! LOL

I don't make New Year Resolutions.

JudyK said...

That quote is from months ago and it was to throw people off the track. She's already found her man...it's Steve, and it's always been Steve.

Michelle said...

If there's anything going on between her and Stevie Boy, I guarantee the minute his TLC paycheck ends, he's out of there.

The Blame Game said...

What is Steven gonna do, when she gets her man. Go back to his wife and kids maybe?

E-town Neighbor said...

Melissa said...

I don't believe any of that BS about finding a man. It's just more spin. Steve has been living in the basement for years now.

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

Is there proof of that? Kate and Jon were divorced in 2009, so Steve was living in the basement "for years" (while they were still married)-- when Jon was holed up in the garage apartment? Since you said, "for years," and they only moved to the new house in 2008, was Steve also living in the basement of the E-town house? I thought it was "the disturber" who slept in the basement.

emschick1128 said...

I just read the article on Pop eater and almost choked when I read that the so called inside said something to the effect that 2010 has been all about the kids and Kate has forgotten to look after her self. Ha! when does that ever happen. All she does is meet her own need, the hell with the kids. I can't imagine who these insiders are either since she has no friends.

IDModo said...

Kelly: IMO you have gone way over the line with your quip about Michael Vick spending time with Shoka. I realize that sometimes you stretch hyperbole to make your point but you are talking about a man who was responsible for the brutal death and disfigurement of animals here. It's not funny.Have you seen the pictures of the dogs he harmed? This was for a cheap laugh on your part.

Shoka is already in a situation where he is at risk of abuse, if everything we have heard about Kate's dislike of dogs and her temper are true.

Iisosceles said...

Ironic! Psychic!! (Apparently kHate wasn't teaching the Triangle shape that day.)

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

There is a video from way back (ABCs) in which Kate is sticking something to the refrigerator, saying that she works with them on their letters in preparation for pre-school, and she makes the statement that they know all of their shapes. The kids were three at the time.

I think she's a perfect match for Hulk Hogan or that Paul Sr. from OCC. They seemed to get off on each other when he was on J&k+8. And I'd like to see her try beaking off on either one of them the way she did to Jon. Now THAT I might watch.

AuntieAnn said...

Fahnette,

Indeed he did. My point exactly.
;0)

Jen said...

Wait, so the kids were in pre-K and just then learning their shapes? My kid knew them all (even the odd ones like pentagon and octagon) at 18 months old.

Seriously, does anyone spend any real time with these children?

You've got to be kidding me. None are so blind as those who will not see.

Snow Globe said...

1. Ted Kennedy
2. Robert Byrd

^^^^^^

I think that was Kelly's point! What does Kate want with a man in her life? She had a husband, and she threw him away. She had a brother, and she threw him away. She had a male dancing partner, and she threw him away. She had a father, and she threw him away. She had a male dog, and she threw him (and his partner) away, only to bring him back until she can't deal with him anymore. The only people in her life are the paid help and "friends" (all women) and it's only a matter of time before she'll throw them away, too.

Administrator said...

Of course you would get along with everyone when you've estranged anyone who might cause conflict with you and only the hired help is left. Anyone can get along with you "easily" for a paycheck.

Fahnette said...

Auntie Ann, I think I must buy you cookies and mix you drinks and stuff. LOVE IT.

So then, if we extrapolate what we know of Kate as a black hole of need and multiply it by Paul Sr and his constant implications of self-superiority in regards to all of his estranged kids, and add the removal of public attention and TV cameras as a catalyst, the resulting ego implosion will wipe them off the planet?

Will Mike Rowe or Michio Kaku narrate?

Isosceles said...

Jen said...

Wait, so the kids were in pre-K and just then learning their shapes? My kid knew them all (even the odd ones like pentagon and octagon) at 18 months old.

)))))))))

They were in Preschool at the church school (three years old) when they were learning shapes. They were in Pre-K when they were five and should have known their shapes long before that.
Mine knew their shapes, too, at 18 months, with the help of the Tupperware shape-sorter ball!

Midnight Madness said...

I think before any potential suitor falls into her trap, he should sit down with Jon and watch all of the seasons on DVD, have him narrate what really went on behind the scenes and how "easy" she is to get along with!
I would think that any man in his right mind would fly out of there faster than a speeding bullet.

Just the facts, Ma'm said...

"They were in Preschool at the church school (three years old) when they were learning shapes. They were in Pre-K when they were five and should have known their shapes long before that."
???
So the common belief is that all six went through preschool and preK and none of them learned their shapes? Where did this ridiculous idea come from? One little kid saying something in one of the episodes?

I'd like to see Kate with Simon Cowell.

Also, I know this is OT, but in the last thread some ppl were debating whether Ashley & Carla were actually Kate's friends, or just in it for the money. I was reading Carla's blog, and she appears to be a sincere Christian woman; I also remember an old episode of J&K + 8 where Ashley was playing w/ the kids, and Kate said the kids loved her. It seems like Ashley's there alot, and I'm wondering if the kids are attached to her, but if so, why hasn't Kate kicked her to the curb? Doesn't she do that w/ whoever gets close to the kids?

Pate said...

PaMa....you forgot what happened to the rooster.

Only man that will be interested in her is someone that really, REALLY, ....really likes kids. Plus it will just be to get Stevie jealous.

Kelly said...

IdModo,
Take a chill pill. We're talking on a blog here, not conspiring to hurt animals. Get a grip. So, we're not allowed to mention Michael Vick's name?

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

Not at all. They were learning shapes when they were three; hopefully they learned their shapes in Pre-K; one child said this year they didn't recognize a triangle. That doesn't mean that none of them knows any shapes, nor was it ever stated as such. Relax.

JudyK said...

______________________________________

It's obvious these kids haven't been read to by their mother and anything they've learned they have learned in school. My daughter had her hand over heart and was reciting the Pledge of Allegiance when she was 18 months old and recognized a triangle BEFORE that age...she also knew the names of all the ancient dinosaurs because I read a book to her about them on a daily basis.

watchdog said...

Kate is an attractive woman on the outside. If someone who didn't know the real Kate saw her, they'd probably say what a pretty woman she is.

She used to be attractive on the outside. Words escape me when I try to describe what she's morphed herself into today.

As far as finding a man, hasn't she already found one in Purseboy? Maybe she means they plan to make it all legal in 2011.

----------------------------
One of the girl tups, I believe Alexis asked what a triangle looked like. In the last Halloween episode they were outside carving pumpkins with kHate. Alexis asked for help with an eye (?), and said something about now knowing what a triangle looks like.

Kate's response? "You're SIX you should know what a triangle looks like." Seemed like she was embarrassed Alexis said that in front of the camera.

Hippie Chick said...

Conceited much Kate? She has 8 kids! That is a lot of baggage for any man. A guy would be crazy to date Kate, knowing what she is like anyhow. All he would have to do is watch the show, & it would all over. Can you imagine their first date?
Kate: You're taking me to Nabu.
Her date: I thought Italian would be nice, then a romantic stroll on a beach.
Kate: A beach?? Do you know how much preparation goes into that? I would have to bring sandals, a bikini, suntan lotion, an umbrella...do YOU feel like lugging all that shit for me?
Her date: Well, now that you mention...
Kate: We're going to Nabu, now hand me my pink phone, I HAVE to call Chris.
Her date: Who's Chris?
Kate: What?? Don't you know me?? Chris is my photographer, you dumb man! (slaps her date in the face) He must be notified if I go anywhere!
Her date: Did you just slap me?
Kate: It was a love tap. Ain't I cute?
Her date: No. And we're not in love, and from the looks of it, we never will be. Bye, you psycho.

IDModo said...

Kelly, you missed the point. You can say "Michael Vick" as often as you want. I was merely accusing you of bad taste in juxtaposing his name with Shoka's in a failed attempt to be funny.

I am not aware of any conspiracy theories on this issue.If you don't understand why your comment might be seen as offensive, I am sorry for having ruffled your sensitive feathers.

_____
Khate has not kicked Carla or Ashley to the curb after all these years because Carla and Ashley do what they are told. They obey and follow Khate's orders. You mention that you read Carla's blog and "she appears to be a
sincere Christian woman." People can "spin" themselves anyway they want to - it is up to people reading it to be discerning and put all of the pieces together. Once that happens, it is clear that Carla and Ashley are anything but "christian" (whatever that means anymore) as they are aiding and abetting a child abuser.

AuntieAnn said...

If Kate reads to her kids at all I'm sure it's only those pieces of garbage she has published. What child would want THAT read to them.

She has certainly never portrayed herself as a patient woman who sits like Mother Goose reading to her children. And watching how restless they are sitting on that silly interview couch, I don't think they'd have the attention span to listen to her. God knows she'd throw the book down and scream at them if any one of them asked her to repeat something anyway. The whole scam of a reality show that was supposed to put her in a good light to prove how this "supermom Kate" handles so much 'by herself' only demonstrated what a monster she really is to her kids.

Reality Bites said...

It's all PR hype - to keep Kate Gosselin in the tabloids with reports of her "dating" a new man every couple of weeks ala Kim Kardashian. What else is her rep going to do? Jon cleaned up his act and can't be demonized in the tabloids anymore. Kate will be seen with various men spawning speculation she's boinking them. It's the oldest PR trick in the book.

LancasterCountyMom said...

As I was reading through some of the above posts concerning language skills, I was trying to remember when my children (boys) learned various things. I know they certainly weren't talking about octagons or reciting the pledge of allegiance by 18 months, and my husband & I read to them every day. Now that they are all 16+, I definitely do not see any deficiencies in their language skills....sooooo, for those readers who are now feeling that their kids are behind, here is what is NORMAL:

Here is a checklist that you can follow to determine if your child's speech and language skills are developing on schedule. You should talk to your child's doctor about anything that is checked "no."

18 - 23 months

Enjoys being read to.
Follows simple commands without gestures.
Points to simple body parts such as "nose."
Understands simple verbs such as "eat," "sleep."
Correctly pronounces most vowels and n, m, p, h, especially in the beginning of syllables and short words. Also begins to use other speech sounds.
Says 8 to 10 words (pronunciation may still be unclear).
Asks for common foods by name.
Makes animal sounds such as "moo."
Starting to combine words such as "more milk."
Begins to use pronouns such as "mine."

(btw: I am NOT a kate fan.)

AuntieAnn said...

=====
Or in Kate's case "Mine, ALL MINE."

BeDoneNow said...

I think is just Kate's way of begging for a dating show again. She wants to be done playing a mother on TV now, and wants to play a true Diva for TV cameras full time.

No snark intended, I am serious.

However, I bet Levi Johnston is still looking for a sugar-mama.

Url said...

I thought Kart was already committed to Steve. Maybe his wife won't divorce him or he's afraid Kart's well will run dry. Possible alternative suitors based on compatability and likability factors are Howard K. Stern, Joey Buttafuaco, Danny Bonadouchie, and Drew Peterson.

gotyournumberKate said...

BeDoneNow..........I was thinking the same thing. This will be TLC and Kate's next move, Kate dating. They know they're going to have to find something else soon to get back ratings. I'd bet money on it.

Exactly. And kate's reps are laughing their asses off reading these comments because they've gotten the EXACT reaction they were looking for.

The only way to make her go away is to ignore her.

Or how about when he picks her up for the date with a lovely bouquet of flowers:

Kate "Thanks, but I don't care about stuff like that. The baby's breath will make a mess as it dries out and I have 8, count em, 8 kids to clean up after so I don't have time for cleaning up flowers!"

Kate at dinner with her date "Ugh, I don't like this table, everyone is starring at me! I'm a celebrity you know! Ugh! Get the waitress!! She's useless, I want cleaner utensils! Look, there's something on this spoon. I think it's gum! I want it thrown away. Have the waitress bring a trash can in here so I can watch her throw away this dirty spoon!"

At the door, at the end of the date for the goodnight kiss.

Kate "EEEEOOOWWWW! Don't do that. You're a man and you have germs. I might let you kiss me if I can take a peeky at your bank account though!"

I understood what IDModo was saying. Kelly, it really wasn't funny, and there are those people who don't want to even hear his name mentioned, let alone even suggesting (in fun) that he could take care of the Gosselin's dog. I'm sure you didn't mean to upset anyone, but in this case, because this is such a sensitive subject to many people (myself included) there were those quite possibly who were offended.

Is there proof of that? Kate and Jon were divorced in 2009, so Steve was living in the basement "for years" (while they were still married)-- when Jon was holed up in the garage apartment? Since you said, "for years," and they only moved to the new house in 2008, was Steve also living in the basement of the E-town house? I thought it was "the disturber" who slept in the basement.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
He's in the basement, you can count on it!
this link is from last month and do you remember when Jon once made the following statement in reference to a question about Kate & Steve: "Once it all comes out, no one will believe how long it has all gone on". He made this statement a year ago.

Thanks. This article said for months before their marriage went south, (there was something going on with Steve). Jon and Kate divorced in 2009. You stated in your post that he's been in the basement "for years," which is why I questioned it. "For years" would have meant that he was sleeping in the basement at the Andrew Avenue house, and I hadn't heard any rumors about that.

Not to say that he's not in the basement, but I take that article with a grain of salt, especially since they reported "And on Aug. 21, (2010) Steve stepped out without his wedding ring," like it was something new. There are photos of him from two summers ago showing that he wasn't wearing a wedding ring. No big reveal in the online article.

So this is proof that Steve has been sleeping in the basement for years? It couldn't have been one of the kids, or the nanny, or Jamie? That "proof" would never hold up in court!

Kate will always be single said...

Kate wants a man to take care of her kids, the Orphanage, the tuition and bills, the household chores, and to give her the appearance of desirability. It's still unfathomable to me that Steve could possibly be attracted to her; she is so gross physically and he has seen her in all her nasty, vain, cruel, stupid, whiny glory. I think she finds him attractive and loves the speculation that they are an item, but how could he find her anything but pathetic and repulsive? He represents power and money to her, as he is an extension of TLC, complete with corporate credit card. But once TLC isn't footing the bills, I'll bet Steve is out of there. She is completely unlovable and unf--kable IMO. Just can't imagine anyone wanting that skank. She is just a fat-assed child who needs babysitting and the pay is good.

Kate can dip into her kids' 15 percent of the gross proceeds of the show to take care of the mortgage, the tutition and whatever bills that have to do with them. They are supporting themselves; why does she need a man, other than to have someone there to control?

Good luck to you roxyhelen with your med school quest. My oldest daughter is in her second year of residency and I know full well what you are up against. Med school is grueling and the hours are killer. I have had her dog living with me since the second year of medical school as the hours are so lengthy that she couldn't care for him. He is my grandbaby! The rewards of becoming a doctor and doing something so valuable make the sacrifice worthwile of course. I am so proud of her.
I remember that there is another site, Student Doctor Network, that my daughter found very useful when preparing for the med school interviews. Many prospective students post interview questions on this site and that really helps with the preparation.
Sorry if this post is out of place as it is not about Kate but I guess that is my New Year's Resolution. Although I will always feel heartsick about those 8 children, their mother is a waste of any concern. I feel she is a lost cause and I too hope this is the year she falls off the radar screen.

Poetic Justice said...

From Khate - Jamie sleeps with me when she comes.

From Jon - Steve was sleeping in the basement and Khate (not a morning person) was getting up at 5:00 a.m. to go to the basement and "work out."

As an aside I think she is talking all this smack about a man to push Steve to make an honest woman out of her, as well as because she is totally unbelievable as a hands on mom she has to have something to put out there.

Isn't it poetic justice that Sarah is now going out and doing jobs like Khate was supposed to do and taking pies and presents to people in the back 40. She was a logger on the last episode, a fisherman and waittress previously. I can't wait for the next season of SPA. It would not surprise me if she didn't start taking people like Bill O'Reilly out into the backwoods - people who would appreciate the experience.

Khate sat on her lazy butt making goo goo eyes at Steve and let someone else slide in there and become TLCs bread and butter. She must surely be no more than a drain to TLC at this point.

Organic Fluff said...

I gotta a feeling the kids paltry little sum would take care of about a month's upkeep for mommie dearest. Those matchy matchy outfits for her Steven are expensive. And all those sandwiches - the cost of bread these days.

Just a note I was at the store the other day (where they sell local produce and meat) to get some eggs and the regular eggs were $2.10 and the organic eggs were $2.00. I asked are you sure you got that right and he said yes there was no organic market and he needed to get rid of them.

I assumed TLC would air America's Septuplets Turn 13 multiple times so I didn't Tivo it. Now it's nowhere to be found on their schedule. What, can't make money off a nice normal family who doesn't want to pimp out their kids?

I did see a local news clip about their birthday on Youtube and get this, one of the boys says that he hates school because they're made fun of just for being the septuplets.

That's the thing, anyone "different" in school is a target. School is hard enough being a HO multiple, then for the Gosselins you add in a TV show and a crazy mother and tabloids??? It's actually remarkable the kids didn't get expelled earlier.

I remember a post from several weeks ago where someone was claiming the Gosselin school is above teasing, kids aren't made fun of there.....yeaaaah, right.

Lorrie said...

JudyK said... "It's obvious these kids haven't been read to by their mother and anything they've learned they have learned in school."
************************************************

Remember the 2nd trip to the dentist episode? Kate attempted to read a book about the planets to the kids, but she did so with the utmost impatience, all the while rushing through every page. (When I read to my students or my son, I make sure to take my time, and try to make it fun; if kids see that YOU enjoy reading, it's far more likely they'll mirror that same behavior).

If I recall correctly, the only time Kate looked engaged is when she snottily informed the camera that the waiting area had out of date books, and that Pluto was no longer a planet. Perhaps she was trying to be funny, but if you're getting 8 sets of teeth cleaned (likely for FREE), why are you complaining about the reading selection? Here's an idea, Ms. Organization -- bring some books or other entertainment along for your children, rather than expecting it to be done for you, then bellyaching that it's not up to your standards. I suppose she hasn't yet learned that lesson, judging from the recent meal in Alaska fiasco.

Patterns said...

There’s a pattern to the blogging.

After a Kate show there’s a flurry of posting, lots of comments. Then things begin to slow down and Kate stays out of sight (or at least doesn’t call Chris). Then along comes “someone in the know” with “special insight” and the fast and furious comments starts again followed by Kate sightings about 10 days before the next special is announced, which, of course, spurs lots of speculating and comments about what the show will be about. By then a lot of curiosity is stirred up, enough to keep those ratings up.

Administrator said...

Kate is a glass is half empty person and this negative attitude filters down directly to the children, either causing them stress and anxiety or teaching them to be Debby Downers themselves.

Instead of bemoaning oh this book about the planets is wrong, why not use it as a teaching tool? See this book kids? It has Pluto listed as a planet, but it's actually a few years old and scientists have now declassified Pluto as a planet and here's why (like Kate even knows why).

Instead of an "oh, bother" moment, it becomes a teachable moment.

I remember my high school teacher kept up a map of east and west Germany after it unified, not because he wanted us to think it was still like that, but because he used it as a teaching tool to explain the history of the area.

I see this simply as a pre-view comment - her attempt for the dating show they talked /commented about previously.

I think that's what a lot of women want- to be taken care of. Not so unusual. I dont understand how she can be called 'gross'. Whats so physically gross about her? She's really quite attractive physically. It's her personality thats unattractive.

Because for many people looks are closely tied to personality. You might see close family members and friends as just beautiful when objectively maybe they are just average. On the flip side, someone who is objectively pretty but who treats you terribly can start to appear physically quite ugly.

roxyhelen said...

@ A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate thanks so much for the nice words :)

@ cathy518 My mother is a doctor so I kind of have an idea of how hard this is going to be but of course I will only fully understand when I get there.Has your daughter decided what she will specialize in? Thank you for the site but unfortunately I won't be able to use it since I live in Romania and there is a whole different system here(I wished we had your educational system..from pre-k to college ours is kind of a mess right now except for the college system, the other ones constantly change)

And here's Kate Gosselin, living in a country with a great educational system ,with the possibility to offer her children the best education and what does she do? She constantly pulls them out of school and for what? So that instead of being attached to classmates they can be creepily attached to camera men?So they can be expelled from kindergarten? So that 1.3 million people can see her daughter does not know what is a triangle or who was Cleopatra or see her son doesn't know how to read?

The Gosselin kids do not seem stupid to me,they seem to have potential(my non professional opinion of course).I remember the episode where Joel was taken to Hands On House and Jon first show him what to do(they were building something I think) once and then Joel did it all by himself the second time. And I remember Aaden naming many animals out of a book when he was like three.And Mady and Cara could read at 5. Also some of them enjoy spots/activities... not just Cara.Leah wanted to do gymnastics,Mady seemed to enjoy singing etc.

It's a shame!

I disagree. You have to be beautiful on the inside to be beautiful on the outside otherwise it's just a mask. Anyone can put on a mask.

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

Hi Sara :o)

I beg to differ, but an outwardly attractive human being can most definitely come off as ugly, simply because he or she has a horrible personality.

An outwardly unattractive human being can be viewed as a beautiful human being simply because he or she is kind, dedent, loving, understanding, personable, charitable, sensitive, etc...etc...

Unfortunately, Kate lacks a bunch of positive attributes, thus making her unattractive to many.

I used to work with a girl who was very overweight but yet beautiful. She was a great singer and at our Christmas party she got up and sang Silent Night signing it out as she sang. She glowed. We all just sat there in stunned silence. It was a beautiful moment with a beautiful woman that I will never forget. khate doesn't have that factor. That is why she is considered undesirable.

Sure, a gal's gotta make a lkiving. But better Kate Gosselin should go back to nursing-or even find another reality show ala Dancing With the Stars to vent her free floating rage- than foist her bad temper and questionable child rearing on America and those poor kids of hers. Added pain in watching: wondering if those tykes will ever have a strong father figure in their lives.

Jill said...

About Kate appearance:

I got this from the woman who writes the "A Touch of Tuesday Weld" blog. I can't think of her name...sorry. But she hit the nail on the head when she wrote this about Kate......




“If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until you can hardly bear to look at it. A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.”

From the children's book "The Twits", by Roald Dahl




I don't know if you've ever read that children's book, but Kate needs to have a copy of it land in her lap asap. Perhaps she can learn a thing or two.

sara said...

I'm talking strictly about physical appearance- nothing to do with personality, Kate is pretty on the outside. If someone who did not know her saw her on the street, they would think she was attractive. I agree her personality is ugly, but her physical appearance is not. JMHO!

She ain't pretty said...

Sara: I believe the arguing point is your line: "If someone who did not know her saw her on the street, they would think she was attractive." That ship has sailed. Even if there was one eligible male left on this continent who did not know her, and did find her attractive, a three-minute google check would reveal enough ugliness to turn the guy off in a hurry.

Well, according to RadarOnline, they flew out first class last night to start filming in Austrailia and New Zealand:

"Kate and the kids flew-out just before midnight last night in what will be a staggered trip to Australia and New Zealand," a source said.

"Obviously, Jon was informed of the excursion and the kids will not see their father again until mid-January when they return to America with their mom.

"They will be filming for Kate Plus 8 and the kids are excited about visiting both Australia and New Zealand.

Hey Sara :o)

I believe you when you say that Kate appears attractive to you on the outside.

Unfortunately, I don't agree with you. She's quite scary looking to me. She's very cold, jagged, and rough looking. When she smiles, she looks like she's going to rip out someone's jugular vein. She's been altered up the wazoo- and she has "dead eyes".

I'm sure if she was a nicer human being, I could easily overlook all that. Too bad she's not.

Admin, I watched the McCaughey special last night. It's remarkable how hard Kenny and Bobbie worked to raise their 8, count 'em, 8 kids. I couldn't help but compare them to Jon and Khate, and the similarities early on are striking. I swear Khate had these old specials on tape and modeled her parenting after Bobbie. Everything from the babies' names, to coupon cutting, to daytime/bedtime routines, showcasing their Christian faith, etc. That can't be all coincidence, it's Khate emulating her idol and hoping for the same freebies and special treatment. The big difference is that Bobbie is genuine, while Khate is not.

What really surprised me is that film can last a lifetime. The now-teenage McCaugheys had to witness their baby videos being played on national TV again, as most of the special was comprised of footage of previous specials. Thankfully, all was in good taste - no potty training, vomiting or embarassing nakedness. I missed the first few minutes, but I didn't hear any of the kids mention being teased. Kelsey said her friends think it's cool that she's famous, but Mikayla doesn't like people staring (though she understands why they do).

I can't believe how dumb Jon & Kate both were in thinking they would potentially never have to work again. And how, by making making their kids "lab rats" and recreating the Truman Show? Bobbie & Kenny did it the right way and kept a very limited media profile. They took a few opportunities to earn a little side money but never fully relied on the media or freebies. Hopefully they saved a lot of that money for their kids. I have a hunch they did, because Alexis M. said that if she can fully walk by the time she's 16, her dad will buy her a car. How sweet is that? By the way, she and Nathan, the two kids with CP, have come so far. Nathan can walk short distances without assistance and Alexis is doing her best to walk on her own. Coginitively, both are just as sharp as their siblings.

One last thing, for the tups 13th birthday, Bobbie baked seven cakes and more than 10 pizzas from scratch, saving probably $150-$200 from not buying ready-made party food. They showed the family taking a trip to the "beach", which in reality was a kind of sad-looking, man-made lake. Those kids had a blast, though. All the fancy trips in the world won't make a troubled child happy, or compensate for poor parenting.

I watched the majority of the special. I too saw the McCaugheys doing things we rip the Gosselins for doing. In addition to your list, I saw the kids hitting each other and the parents not stepping in. Were they/are they frustrated? Do they have issues that need outside help? Will they end up troubled?

When Kate's kids hit each other, we thought it was horrid. When the McCaughey's kids hit each other, little is said. What's the difference?

Let's see, which McCXaughey child is the most favored by mommy? Which one wears glasses? Which kid is the brat? Which one has constipation issues? Who has more melt downs? How many have been expelled from school? Why doesn't YouTube have detailed "fan" videos about EACH McCaughey child?

Can you google a McCaughey child and not see horrible names, accusations and false diagnoses after their names?

Are Mr & Mrs. McCaughey in the tabloids trashing each other and the children? Did Mrs McCaughey cry on TV that she has a purse of bills she cannot pay? Did Mr. McCaughey go out to bars, party with Coeds, allegedly sleep with babysitters and go to France with his "soul mate?"

Did we ever see a small girl say to Mr. McCaughey, "daddy, don't go away again."

If you don't see the difference why do you bother reading this blog? You are blinded by the teeth, drunk on the kool-aid and a defender of Kate no matter WHAT. Why bother reading? You sure won't learn anything.

I was at the ophthalmologist today, actually.

I have read comment after comment about how Kate is a child abuser because there are photos of her spanking one of the kids. That has nothing to do with filming. Either you think spanking is abuse or you don't. You don't get to claim that Parent A is allowed to spank and Parent B is not. That's a double standard.

Administrator said...

I don't think parent a or b should spank. I don't see where it was said anyone supported spanking of the McCauey's. I missed that.

Ditto. Who gave the McCaughey parents carte blanche to spank and said it was perfectly okay? Maybe on another blog, but I don't remember reading it here. If it was elsewhere, perhaps you should direct your question to the blog where you saw it. I can't imagine how anyone could justify it in one family and find fault with it in another family.

Aeris said...

Yes, both the McCaugheys and Gosselins spank their kids. I don't condone it, but both couples were honest about it. That's not what I hate about the Gosselins, despite the fact Khate's kids seem terrified of her. Another thing about the McCaugheys I don't like is that Bobbie originated the "7:00PM - 8:00AM" crib schedule for her toddlers. We blast Khate for that, but she probably just took that tip from Bobbie.

The McCaugheys were the first family to have surviving septuplets, thus the freebies and promotions. They didn't deserve it, but they were an anomaly at the time and the kindness of their community came pouring out. I'm sure some companies saw a great advertising opportunity, as well. Khate and her brood came seven years later and one tup short, yet she still expected donations to come piling in.

No, the McCaugheys didn't need a 7000 sq foot home; they lived in a 2-bedroom ranch until at least the tups first birthday. Neither did Kate need a home makeover (which she took a proverbial dump on) or a mansion on 27 acres.

The difference is the choices they made. The McCaugheys work and don't live off their kids' marketability. Sure they took a few odd offers, a Christmas album or something, but I do remember Kenny being out of work for awhile.

Each family has their misgivings, but the McCaughey's seem to have their priorites in order. In Monday's special, the host specifically said that it was not the septuplets real birthday. The footage was obviously shot in the summer, hence the beach trip. But it was a good time to film. The kids were out of school, no holiday plans or school activites to interrupt. The Gosselins could have done the same thing, had a yearly special, or done six episodes a year. They could have kept their nice E-Town home and had normal lives with enough money to live comfortably. But they got greedy and now their minds (Khate's at least) are warped from fame and fortune. She's going to end up in a psych ward if she doesn't get help. She is so concerned about getting every penny she can get (understandable with 8 kids), but she is turning a blind eye to her kids in the process. I doubt she even "knows" her own kids. Taking her already-failing-in-life children across the globe on a 3-week trip, during school, shows that this woman's priorities are jacked up. Obviously, she can't perceive the long-term effects of anything she does. I personally don't want to feed this machine anymore. My 2011 resolution is to be done with all things Gosselin.

I don't think parent a or b should spank. I don't see where it was said anyone supported spanking of the McCauey's. I missed that.

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

Ditto. Who gave the McCaughey parents carte blanche to spank and said it was perfectly okay? Maybe on another blog, but I don't remember reading it here. If it was elsewhere, perhaps you should direct your question to the blog where you saw it. I can't imagine how anyone could justify it in one family and find fault with it in another family.

Let's see, which McCXaughey child is the most favored by mommy? Which one wears glasses? Which kid is the brat? Which one has constipation issues? Who has more melt downs? How many have been expelled from school? Why doesn't YouTube have detailed "fan" videos about EACH McCaughey child?

Can you google a McCaughey child and not see horrible names, accusations and false diagnoses after their names?

Are Mr & Mrs. McCaughey in the tabloids trashing each other and the children? Did Mrs McCaughey cry on TV that she has a purse of bills she cannot pay? Did Mr. McCaughey go out to bars, party with Coeds, allegedly sleep with babysitters and go to France with his "soul mate?"

Did we ever see a small girl say to Mr. McCaughey, "daddy, don't go away again."

If you don't see the difference why do you bother reading this blog? You are blinded by the teeth, drunk on the kool-aid and a defender of Kate no matter WHAT. Why bother reading? You sure won't learn anything.

Hey Sara :o)

I believe you when you say that Kate appears attractive to you on the outside.

Unfortunately, I don't agree with you. She's quite scary looking to me. She's very cold, jagged, and rough looking. When she smiles, she looks like she's going to rip out someone's jugular vein. She's been altered up the wazoo- and she has "dead eyes".

I'm sure if she was a nicer human being, I could easily overlook all that. Too bad she's not.

I guess beauty really is in the eye of the beholder...

@ A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate thanks so much for the nice words :)

@ cathy518 My mother is a doctor so I kind of have an idea of how hard this is going to be but of course I will only fully understand when I get there.Has your daughter decided what she will specialize in? Thank you for the site but unfortunately I won't be able to use it since I live in Romania and there is a whole different system here(I wished we had your educational system..from pre-k to college ours is kind of a mess right now except for the college system, the other ones constantly change)

And here's Kate Gosselin, living in a country with a great educational system ,with the possibility to offer her children the best education and what does she do? She constantly pulls them out of school and for what? So that instead of being attached to classmates they can be creepily attached to camera men?So they can be expelled from kindergarten? So that 1.3 million people can see her daughter does not know what is a triangle or who was Cleopatra or see her son doesn't know how to read?

The Gosselin kids do not seem stupid to me,they seem to have potential(my non professional opinion of course).I remember the episode where Joel was taken to Hands On House and Jon first show him what to do(they were building something I think) once and then Joel did it all by himself the second time. And I remember Aaden naming many animals out of a book when he was like three.And Mady and Cara could read at 5. Also some of them enjoy spots/activities... not just Cara.Leah wanted to do gymnastics,Mady seemed to enjoy singing etc.

It's a shame!

sara said...

''' Kate wants a man to take care of her kids, the Orphanage, the tuition and bills, the household chores, and to give her the appearance of desirability. It's still unfathomable to me that Steve could possibly be attracted to her; she is so gross physically '''

I think that's what a lot of women want- to be taken care of. Not so unusual. I dont understand how she can be called 'gross'. Whats so physically gross about her? She's really quite attractive physically. It's her personality thats unattractive.

JudyK said... "It's obvious these kids haven't been read to by their mother and anything they've learned they have learned in school."
************************************************

Remember the 2nd trip to the dentist episode? Kate attempted to read a book about the planets to the kids, but she did so with the utmost impatience, all the while rushing through every page. (When I read to my students or my son, I make sure to take my time, and try to make it fun; if kids see that YOU enjoy reading, it's far more likely they'll mirror that same behavior).

If I recall correctly, the only time Kate looked engaged is when she snottily informed the camera that the waiting area had out of date books, and that Pluto was no longer a planet. Perhaps she was trying to be funny, but if you're getting 8 sets of teeth cleaned (likely for FREE), why are you complaining about the reading selection? Here's an idea, Ms. Organization -- bring some books or other entertainment along for your children, rather than expecting it to be done for you, then bellyaching that it's not up to your standards. I suppose she hasn't yet learned that lesson, judging from the recent meal in Alaska fiasco.

Patterns said...

There’s a pattern to the blogging.

After a Kate show there’s a flurry of posting, lots of comments. Then things begin to slow down and Kate stays out of sight (or at least doesn’t call Chris). Then along comes “someone in the know” with “special insight” and the fast and furious comments starts again followed by Kate sightings about 10 days before the next special is announced, which, of course, spurs lots of speculating and comments about what the show will be about. By then a lot of curiosity is stirred up, enough to keep those ratings up.

If Kate reads to her kids at all I'm sure it's only those pieces of garbage she has published. What child would want THAT read to them.

OMG! AuntieAnn that is too funny! I snorted when I laughed and read it to my boyfriend. He's not that into Gosselin stuff and he laughed to! Hahahaha

So this is proof that Steve has been sleeping in the basement for years? It couldn't have been one of the kids, or the nanny, or Jamie? That "proof" would never hold up in court!

Generally you are pretty dry with your wit but I tend to agree that this fell totally flat and was in poor taste.

BTW (in Kate-speak) "why'dja change your name to Sport?

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

I understood what IDModo was saying. Kelly, it really wasn't funny, and there are those people who don't want to even hear his name mentioned, let alone even suggesting (in fun) that he could take care of the Gosselin's dog. I'm sure you didn't mean to upset anyone, but in this case, because this is such a sensitive subject to many people (myself included) there were those quite possibly who were offended.

Url said...

I thought Kart was already committed to Steve. Maybe his wife won't divorce him or he's afraid Kart's well will run dry. Possible alternative suitors based on compatability and likability factors are Howard K. Stern, Joey Buttafuaco, Danny Bonadouchie, and Drew Peterson.

AuntieAnn said...

Begins to use pronouns such as "mine."

Or in Kate's case "Mine, ALL MINE."

LancasterCountyMom said...

As I was reading through some of the above posts concerning language skills, I was trying to remember when my children (boys) learned various things. I know they certainly weren't talking about octagons or reciting the pledge of allegiance by 18 months, and my husband & I read to them every day. Now that they are all 16+, I definitely do not see any deficiencies in their language skills....sooooo, for those readers who are now feeling that their kids are behind, here is what is NORMAL:

Here is a checklist that you can follow to determine if your child's speech and language skills are developing on schedule. You should talk to your child's doctor about anything that is checked "no."

18 - 23 months

Enjoys being read to.
Follows simple commands without gestures.
Points to simple body parts such as "nose."
Understands simple verbs such as "eat," "sleep."
Correctly pronounces most vowels and n, m, p, h, especially in the beginning of syllables and short words. Also begins to use other speech sounds.
Says 8 to 10 words (pronunciation may still be unclear).
Asks for common foods by name.
Makes animal sounds such as "moo."
Starting to combine words such as "more milk."
Begins to use pronouns such as "mine."

Also, I know this is OT, but in the last thread some ppl were debating whether Ashley & Carla were actually Kate's friends, or just in it for the money. I was reading Carla's blog, and she appears to be a sincere Christian woman; I also remember an old episode of J&K + 8 where Ashley was playing w/ the kids, and Kate said the kids loved her. It seems like Ashley's there alot, and I'm wondering if the kids are attached to her, but if so, why hasn't Kate kicked her to the curb? Doesn't she do that w/ whoever gets close to the kids?
_____
Khate has not kicked Carla or Ashley to the curb after all these years because Carla and Ashley do what they are told. They obey and follow Khate's orders. You mention that you read Carla's blog and "she appears to be a
sincere Christian woman." People can "spin" themselves anyway they want to - it is up to people reading it to be discerning and put all of the pieces together. Once that happens, it is clear that Carla and Ashley are anything but "christian" (whatever that means anymore) as they are aiding and abetting a child abuser.

Hippie Chick said...

Conceited much Kate? She has 8 kids! That is a lot of baggage for any man. A guy would be crazy to date Kate, knowing what she is like anyhow. All he would have to do is watch the show, & it would all over. Can you imagine their first date?
Kate: You're taking me to Nabu.
Her date: I thought Italian would be nice, then a romantic stroll on a beach.
Kate: A beach?? Do you know how much preparation goes into that? I would have to bring sandals, a bikini, suntan lotion, an umbrella...do YOU feel like lugging all that shit for me?
Her date: Well, now that you mention...
Kate: We're going to Nabu, now hand me my pink phone, I HAVE to call Chris.
Her date: Who's Chris?
Kate: What?? Don't you know me?? Chris is my photographer, you dumb man! (slaps her date in the face) He must be notified if I go anywhere!
Her date: Did you just slap me?
Kate: It was a love tap. Ain't I cute?
Her date: No. And we're not in love, and from the looks of it, we never will be. Bye, you psycho.

watchdog said...

Kate is an attractive woman on the outside. If someone who didn't know the real Kate saw her, they'd probably say what a pretty woman she is.

She used to be attractive on the outside. Words escape me when I try to describe what she's morphed herself into today.

As far as finding a man, hasn't she already found one in Purseboy? Maybe she means they plan to make it all legal in 2011.

"They were in Preschool at the church school (three years old) when they were learning shapes. They were in Pre-K when they were five and should have known their shapes long before that."
???
So the common belief is that all six went through preschool and preK and none of them learned their shapes? Where did this ridiculous idea come from? One little kid saying something in one of the episodes?

Fahnette said...

Auntie Ann, I think I must buy you cookies and mix you drinks and stuff. LOVE IT.

So then, if we extrapolate what we know of Kate as a black hole of need and multiply it by Paul Sr and his constant implications of self-superiority in regards to all of his estranged kids, and add the removal of public attention and TV cameras as a catalyst, the resulting ego implosion will wipe them off the planet?

Will Mike Rowe or Michio Kaku narrate?

Snow Globe said...

Except they are all dead! lol

^^^^^^

I think that was Kelly's point! What does Kate want with a man in her life? She had a husband, and she threw him away. She had a brother, and she threw him away. She had a male dancing partner, and she threw him away. She had a father, and she threw him away. She had a male dog, and she threw him (and his partner) away, only to bring him back until she can't deal with him anymore. The only people in her life are the paid help and "friends" (all women) and it's only a matter of time before she'll throw them away, too.

Jen said...

Wait, so the kids were in pre-K and just then learning their shapes? My kid knew them all (even the odd ones like pentagon and octagon) at 18 months old.

Seriously, does anyone spend any real time with these children?
