New USA network show 'Fairly Legal' changed name from 'Facing Kate'

This is hysterical. The USA Network series about a sexy court Mediator (Mediation is sexy? You coulda fooled us.) started off with a name that had certain connotations to viewers.

Fairly Legal was first known as Facing Kate. But in test screenings, there was so much confusion with Kate Gosselin that producers were afraid audiences wouldn't want to see another reality show about Kate. The network then changed the name.

Said star Sarah Shahi: “It was called Facing Kate, and now it’s called Fairly Legal. They did a test audience, a screening, and 80% of the people thought Facing Kate was a reality show about Kate Gosselin. So with that said, we had to change the title.”

Kate goes liquor shopping and parks in the fire zone (again)

Kate was spotted at a Liquor Store Tuesday afternoon, sans winter coat again, asking an employee for help and making out with a bottle of Momokawa Organic Ginjo Sake, a Japanese wine. Even her alcohol is organic! Suggested pairings are with salmon, grilled chicken or fruit salad.

While many eye-witnesses and insiders have reported that Kate drinks (some even report quite heavily), she's never actually been seen purchasing booze before until today.

And she ended up in the fire lane again. In this photo, you can see "fire" written under her car, and the red fire sign reflecting in the car window.

Kate picks up four of sextuplets from school yesterday

Those kindergartener backpacks look so stuffed full. Perhaps with make-up work? We feel so sorry for the kids about how much school they’ve been forced to miss. backpacks

Court docket from April 2010 to January 2011

Divorce docket for Jon and Kate reveals disputes over child support, Kate's motion to seal the record (which was granted), mixed in with periods of relative quiet.

Jon filed for contempt first, a week later Kate also filed for contempt

Our source in Berks County is revealing that the current court docket says that Jon filed for contempt of the custody order on January 6, 2011. A week later, on January 14, Kate also filed for contempt, perhaps as a counter-claim. So it's back to the war of the roses.

It's too bad they both can't just follow all court orders and get along for the sake of the kids.

Kate sees Broadway show in NYC

Decompressing after her three week trip Down Under? A couple other people in the audience spotted Kate at the Broadway musical Jersey Boys, based on the band the Four Seasons. No kids.

Kate in New York after so much time with the kids? She is nothing if not predictable.

Court docket: It was Jon who filed for contempt against Kate

Jon is still sticking with the same experienced divorce attorney he's had since last year, Mary Vidas, and it was actually Jon who filed for contempt of the custody order, not Kate. Kate has reportedly repeatedly tried to sabotage the custody orders, the latest of which is taking the children to Australia over the New Year's, when Jon was scheduled to have the children for New Year's on "odd years"--i.e. 2011.

And this isn't the first time Kate has run into trouble with violating orders (an obsessed parental alienator typically has no deference for the court of law--court orders do not scare them, they believe they know better than the judge). In October 2009 the court, in a very under-publicized decision, found Kate in contempt of the divorce arbitration agreement and ordered her to deposit $7,500 back into their joint account for every month she failed to do so. Naturally the mainstream media usually only reports Jon's violations. At least back in those days! We wish peace and harmony for these two as they share the kids this year.

Kate and kids horseback ride in New Zealand, pose for the paparazzi

Now they're making the kids pose for the paparazzi? (Check out Collin's face.) Or is this more likely TLC's personal PR photographer?

Kate and kids tour New Zealand

Kate and the kids went to the Kiwi House to visit animals, the Waitomo Caves, and had dinner at Rotorua.

Missing school, looking tired, dressed alike. Still getting the crap filmed out of them.

Kate asks Court to hold Jon in contempt

Kate claims Jon is selling stories and has tweeted about the custody battle.

Can you say hypocrite? Does Kate remember this interview she gave to Regis and Kelly? This interview was so outrageous we deemed it Kate's number two worst moment of 2010, just behind the Alaska camping trip. Parental alienators often drag the other parent back into court the second the other parent gets anything more favorable in the custody arrangement (rumor is Jon now has the right to have the children when Kate is out of town instead of leaving them with a nanny--the right of first refusal) out of fear they are losing control. To Jon: We support your right to have a healthy relationship with your kids, undisturbed by a narcissistic mother who has some sick need to sabotage it all.

Also, what exactly is Kate doing every time she makes an episode of Kate Plus 8? Oh, right, she's selling a story. Just because it's TLC and they play cutsie music in the background and edit it all nice does not mean she is not selling her children's personal, private moments for cash money, just like insiders have sold stories to the tabloids. She too has talked all about the divorce and custody on her own show. Pot meet kettle.

Season Finale of Sarah Palin: Sarah and Dad reminisce about Kate--Here let us bring the campfire to YOU!

The kids were “innocent, sweet, curious spirits”

The season finale of Sarah Palin's Alaska saw Sarah and her dad looking back on the show's significant moments, including the infamous camping trip with Kate. "How could I forget her," Chuck said with a bosterous laugh. "What I enjoyed were her kids," he added. "They didn't want to leave."

Then Sarah joked that Kate just needed to walk over to the campfire to warm up, or "here let us bring it to you!" Haha! (Admin: Strongly suspect Kate wanted to leave all along, that's why she refused to do what they suggested to warm up.) Sarah added that the kids were innocent, sweet and curious. What a nice thing to say about kids who truly are innocent, sweet and curious. And don't deserve what they are being put through. Thanks, Sarah, for summing it up.

Kate and kids head to Steve's homeland

It's back to the airport for the third time in a week as the entourage heads to New Zealand.

Kind of sad that despite discussions on Jon and Kate Plus 8 about going to Jon's homeland, South Korea (even getting the kids passports for the trip), the kids are now going to see Steve the bodyguard's roots instead. Given the blurry feet again, the photos are definitely amateur. Another airport patron? Steve?

Kate and kids and four helpers dine at steakhouse M@Mooloolaba

A waiter said the only thing Kate ordered for dinner Tuesday night was a glass of white wine.
Craig, a Queensland waiter originally from Canada, cracked us up when he described seeing Kate was like "a black cat crossing your path." Kate, the kids, and entourage ate at the popular steakhouse M@Matmooloolaba (near the Sunshine Coast in Queensland) tonight and a few nights ago, too. The restaurant serves lamb brains.

Philly reporter: Kate 'miserable' and 'distant' on shoot

View more news videos at:

A Philadelphia entertainment reporter gave more details of Kate and the kids' working vacation to Philadelphia that he observed in December (just before they took off for an even bigger business trip to Australia).

  • The first stop of the trip was Starbucks
  • Confidentiality agreements were required wherever they went
  • The nanny tended to the children at lunch at Waterworks and Kate was "off to the side."
  • Steve tried to block the photos and the reporter just shot around him. Then finally Steve said fine.
  • Collin fell on the Rocky steps and Kate didn't even acknowledge him.
  • The kids looked happy but Kate appeared "miserable" and "distant"

Kate and kids film on Bondi beach in Sydney

A beach goer spotted the Gosselins with the camera crew, working away their New Year's Day in Sydney.
Another eye witness reported seeing them about to fly out of Sydney airport this morning. Perhaps off to New Zealand now?
