Back to our regularly scheduled programming

Yesterday Kate was spotted tanning, then she was off to Dick’s Sporting Goods, Target, and the dry cleaners. In between trips she checked her pink iphone. Kate wore a modest and appropriate jeans and cardigan set.

No jacket? Who in their right mind goes outside in January without a jacket when there is a winter weather advisory? I think I just answered my own question (right mind!)...
I'm surprised she wasn't wearing open toe hooker heels in the snow and ice!

Did the kids actually go back to that private school?

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

Yep [nodding head].

I wonder if Kate called Chris the pap for these shots, or is Steve still on pap duty?

Enough in New Jersey said...

Snow Globe - I was thinking the same thing LOL
some what practical boots ( of course with a heel ) but not open toe hooker heels WOW - all that fake tanning must keep her inner core warm not to need a coat in PA in the middle of January but then again a coat would cover up her two prized ... oh wait that's just a good bra :)

More BS said...

Amazing how she was so cold with "19 layers" in 50 degree weather in Alaska, but has no problem prancing and smiling with one layer in 30 degree weather in PA.

Whew! I was beginning to worry that something terrible had happened to Chris!

Was wondering this myself.... like i mentioned before in another thread... i honestly think that they are not going back and Kate is either going to homeschool them all or send them to a different school.

IDModo said...

Looks to me like Kate is self medicating in a big way. TLC shouldn't be happy with these pictures of their star diva!
The entire state of Pennsylvania can't have signed a confidentiality agreement.
What is going on?

PJ's momma said...

Wowee, it is hard to believe she is only 35 years old. Compare her to the picture on the side here and it doesn't seem like the same person. I just turned 47 and she looks more my age than hers. I dig that sweater she has on, and think she looks nice from the neck down.

TLC stinks said...

Smiling for Chris, obviously. No jacket because she wants to show off her body. Really, these shots are getting old! INF needs to stop buying this junk.

AuntieAnn said...

Appears as though the meds kicked in while she was inside Target.

Anonymous said...

Parking lot is pretty clear of any snow or ice considering the weather they have been having in PA. My son does snow removal and those businesses must have a great snow removal company because it is almost impossible using any type of salt, calcium chloride, etc., to clear up everything when temp's are low.

Also the article states that Jon still has that job. On HuffPost today it says that Jon quit his job.

I can't get a comment to go through when I pick a name, says I'm not recognized, that's why this is coming through anonymous admin. I try to post as Save8FromEvilKate.

mama mia said...

It is so grossly unfair how Chris never gives Kate enough time to adjust her smile, undo another shirt button and walk sideways to look her thinnest.

Sport said...

I love that SuperMom has nothing better to do than parade around doing meaningless errands herself ... yet she has to pay someone else to parent her kids, do the laundry, make the meals, pack the lunches, clean her house, tutor her kids and generally run the 8 money makers lives.

What a completely whacked sense of priorities.

Does anyone seriously buy her out running errands and NOT see this as another contrived photo op? Go away lady.

Anonymous said...

Are those old pictures that are being recycled? The weather is a bit cold here in PA for her to be out without a jacket and why isn't there any snow (or wetness) on the ground? Hmmmmm.....

I'm also having trouble posting when I pick a name....PhillyPhan

had enough said...

I don't know about you folks but I can't recall when I've ever come out of Target (or any other store) BY MYSELF and had the biggest smile on my face. Maybe if my kids were with me and they had just cracked a joke or something would I be smiling/laughing that large. Nope, looks like Katie is smiling because she was happy to see that Chris got her message that she was coming out...."be ready now Chris, my greatness is approaching the door!"

Kate will do what is best for her no matter what. I don't think she wants her kids home but I do think she would have them home schooled if she can use them for profit more that way. But, it really depends on what Kate thinks is best for Kate not the kids. Just like this last trip, it was for the money for Kate not the kids. What a sick disgusting person Kate Gosselin is! Keep up the good work Jon, the children need you to keep on trying to get them off tv and stop their mom from using them as her little atm's and slaves!

Girl from Up North said...

PhillyPhan, you must be correct - there is no snow or ice in those pictures. Recycled!

Kayla said...

It has been absolutely freezing here in Pa. We have been below average temps more often than not these past two months. I don't even go out to get my mail without my down jacket on. Freezing doesn't even describe it. I couldn't imagine running errands without a coat on.
And she could be shopping without any snow on the ground. We've had storm after storm in NEPA, and all our parking lots are cleared. I don't think Central Pa has been hit nearly as hard, since I have a really good friend in Harrisburg.

un-morphed said...

I am disabled, and suffer from extreme nerve damage pain, so am on a very strong drug, for 15 years now. When I take the pill, within 2 hours it kicks in, and for a few minutes, I experience what I call "euphoria", just like drug addicts go thru. During this period, I can do nothing, but wait for the "high" to subside, then carry on with my day.I have to admit, this drug-induced high does feel good. The pics today of mean irene reminds me of that same "euphoria", to me it looks very obvious, when looking at her eyes. She looks very medicated, but it looks to me that once she has come out of the store, she is back to being "normal" again. I wonder what everyone else thinks of this, like any nurses who may read on here.I know I will be ridiculed on the #1 Fan blog, don't care. If that is all they have to do, then am glad I can give them something to blog about. It is just like giving a bored child a coloring book and crayons, gives them something to do. I worry she may be going thru it, while driving her kids places. Or when she is alone, hurting someone else. Drugging and driving is as bad as Drinking and driving. No, I do not drive anymore.

You know, TLC/INF/whomever would save a lot of money if they just kept a digital file of K8 running her errands. They could just rotate the pictures , they are all identical anyway.

PatK, your comment caught me off guard and I literally LOL'd

LisaNH said...

Looks like in a couple of the photos she's telling either Chris or Rat Claw to "wait" (she has her finger in the air and her mouth looks like she could be saying "wait!"). She probably wanted to adjust the "girls" so they looked perkier in the shot.

Hopefully some way this will help him in court if this job did require him to be away from home too much. Meant to include the link in previous post. I noticed IMF is still saying it was Take that filed so as to make it "appear" that she filed first, just plain lieing or bad journalism. I don't know...... this fiasco drives me crazy and I just want those kids away from her and off of tv.

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

I don't know any thing about porn or video "perversions", but that just looks silly to me. I watched about 30 seconds without sound, so perhaps I missed something.

Even so, my eyes feel dirty.

I think Suleman's "management company" has a real challenge on its hands. The fact that Suleman is walking around free and is responsible for 14 children may be the best argument ever that a free society might not be all it's cracked up to be.

Ingrid said...

I can't believe that is a current photo (the 19th?). If they had all that bad weather the day or two before there would have been some sign of snow or ice somewhere like along the edge where the building meets the sidewalk. Living in Wisconsin I can't imagine a store cleaning snow that good. (unless it all melted in a day?)

I'm Batman said...

Isn't it just so pitiful that this poor woman has to go tanning and shopping day after day? How exhausting it must be to be her!

Must be just awful to have to live that way, and America should be helping her, for gawd's sake. Shopping and tanning is enough to mentally break anybody having to do it once a week, let alone every single day. The poor thing.


On another note,

her hair really looks bad. It just does not flatter her in the least little bit, the color or the style. She always looks like somebody poured a bucket of bleach over her head and makes her face and hair sag. Either that, or she's trying too hard to look like one of Hugh Hefner's girlfriend's.

PJ's momma said...

Kids are back in school - pics at INF, complete with snarky play-by-play. I admit I don't like Kate, but man, some of the stories on that site are just mean spirited. I mean, the kids might read that someday - that their mom didn't love them or was paid to show affection or whatever. They have to live with her; they should be left alone IMO. Moving on now. There's a very balanced ROL article about Jon! The comments section appears to be disabled and I'm glad - because he would be lambasted by the KLovers, even though he's trying to do right.

Not Watching said...

Khate = borrrrrring.

Best thing for these kids is for Khate to continue being as boring as Swiss Cheese. They can film all they want but who will watch? I guess those who don't have any paint drying.

AuntieAnn said...

un-morphed-- I have a hunch she is on meds and have thought that for a very long time. There's no way to confirm it of course but she does appear to go through extreme mood changes and in these photos they are quite obvious.

I'm sorry about your nerve damage. There are no words to describe how excruciatingly painful it is unless you've experienced it. You truly have my sympathy.

emschick1128 said...

I love how Kate hardly ever wears a coat in Jan, why no open toed shoes? I suppose she can't showcase the fake boobs if she's all covered up

un-morphed said...

AuntieAnn-thanks for your kind post :)

h8k8 said...

Star Magazine has a new article this week about Kate and Steve. Its in the Couples section. lol

It says Kate gave Steve's parents a framed picture of Steve and HER KIDS and it didn't go over very well that she kept them waiting for over an hour to meet her. Her lowcut outfit didn't help the impression she made on them either.

You can see it at Pressi's

I watched about 10 seconds of the video and couldn't take any more -- but my question is this: What is it about these mothers who have whole litters of kids and then decide to dress and act like sluts? My guess is they are both (Kate and Nadya) so desperate for a man they will do anything to get one. What man in his right mind would want either of them? That is disgusting.

NT said...

I agree with the posters saying she doesn't wear a coat cos she doesn't want to cover her body. I think that's why if she does move it will be somewhere warm so she can wear as little as possible. I guess she thinks we can't go on without seeing her "great shape". LOL!!

Mom In Lancaster County said...

Our roads here (PA) are bone dry. You never would have known it snowed. I must say that PennDot did a decent clean-up job this time! Likewise, there is no snow on the sidewalks or in parking lots. Come tomorrow, though, it may be a different story and the kids could have another snow day.

The jacket thing has me concerned. I have not seen anyone (and I mean anyone) without a heavy jacket or coat. It's really that miserable, damp raw cold that goes straight through you. I guess my question is WHY. To show off "the girls?" We all know what "they" look like. In all seriousness, something is really wrong there. I went shopping yesterday, and was a bit early (before the store opened) and I couldn't even stand outside the store for a few minutes, waiting for it to open, and I was wearing a jacket, scarf and gloves. I went back to the heated car.

Either she's the most warm-blooded person I've ever seen, or she's having hot flashes! Something must be keeping her hot to trot.

Jon's still employeed said...

Jon Gosselin is still manfully holding down his 9 to 5 job despite rumors that he quit the position, RadarOnline.com can exclusively report.

The website RumorFix had reported that the famous former reality dad had left his gig with an eco-friendly company in Pennsylvania because it involved too much traveling for him.

But a source close to the father-of-eight told RadarOnline.com: “The story is total b*** s*** - he’s still working away and fully employed – it is just not true.”

Gosselin took-up his new job within the past few months and sources revealed that he was really enjoying the work that involved information technology and online marketing.

He was purposefully trying to keep his new position on the ‘down-low’ because he did not want to attract too much attention because of his infamous past.

Gosselin is often recognized when visiting clients but according to sources most people are willing to accept him in his new role.

RadarOnline.com revealed how Gosselin was trying to re-build his post reality television life which meant he could not go back to his previous government position.

Since divorcing Kate he downsized to a much smaller two bedroom apartment as he tried to get his life back-on-track.

And although he’s not earning the high wages he once did when he worked on realty television he has told friends that he is much happier now.

Didn't Kate say in her last interview that the two "not-expelled" children would be returning back to school after Christmas break?

IIRC she said 'next year' which could mean next calendar year or next school year which would be fall of '11.

MaryN said...

It is absolutely obvious Chris is being called when Kate goes out. He would have no idea otherwise when and where she is going. He isn't sitting outside the house 24 hours waiting for her to leave. He apparently lives close by.

I just have this scene in my head of her calling or texting him the day before telling him the time and places she will be going to and asking if he is free then.

What does it say about a person when the only way they can stay in the spotlight is to have their picture taken running errands.

Rumor*fix is run by a former Production Manager for *Extra* (you know the same people who employ Billy Bush - KateG's enamored enabler). Anything for web traffic even if it's untrue.

LOL! So she was inside Target for two hours? That was one nice supply of freebies! Too bad that a jacket wasn't included in the stash!

Sadiemay said...

Good Lord . Does that woman ever do anything around the house.. Seriously, with a house that size you'd think she'd have floors to wash, laundry and every other thing that keeps Mothers busy when the kids are off to school.

Sadiemay said...

I've always thought Kate notified the press where she was going. Way too much coincidence to think otherwise. These latest pics reveal she is having some pleasant conversation with the person taking the pics . One doesn't usually do that when they don't want their photo taken.

Oh the inhumanity of it all.

"E" can take their "True"[snicker]Hollywood Story on Kate, and stick it where the sun doesn't shine. I doubt that "E" was allowed to be "truthful" about Kate.

I just finished listening to another interesting & informative installment of Nina Frye's Gosselin Hour. Well done!

Towards the end of the program Nina admitted on air that when she interviewed Kate a while back, Kate was not a very warm, friendly person at all. Everyone else that she has interviewed was lovely, and wonderful- but not Kate :o( boo-hoo. Big shocker...

Anyway, another testiment to the spikey, sh*tty splendor that is Kate.

For most normal people, I would give you this one. However, K8 has been exhibiting exhibitionist tendencies for the last 2 years so I am inclined to think this is not her reasoning . JMO.

Amazing, isn't it? I also noticed that the only time she is smiling in any of the pictures is when she has a shopping cart full of freebies. She really is the predictable one.

This will be so laughable. Full of lies and slams against Jon. Kate can pretty much make up anything she wants and E will consider it to be true. They will interview "friends, family and neighbors" who've been handpicked by her handlers and who have signed confidentiality agreements.

Put your boots on, people. The BS is going to be deep. Hope Jon has a good lawyer.

I'm guessing TLC is behind this to try to build up her awful reputation before deciding whether or not to go forward with Twisted Kate.

audibleclick said...

Wow, I just saw those pictures of Kate at Target. The woman looks like she's on some heavy duty meds. I rarely comment on her looks but this was a shocker. Her PR team must be hard at work too.

"My, this took longer than expected to produce: Kate Gosselin will (finally!) get the E! True Hollywood treatment on Feb. 2. The program will feature “exclusive insight” from Gosselin’s former nanny who alleges having an affair with Jon Gosselin (which he denies), along with interviews with family, friends and neighbors."

http://insidetv.ew.com/2011/01/20/kate-gosselin-gets-the-e-true-hollywood-treatment/

I have a question for them. What friends and family? Anyway, I'll be skipping this show.

BerksPa said...

Didn't she already have her E-True Hollywood moment on the sofa with Natalie Morales and the not so secretive ear-piece?

If it's insider stuff from the former Nanny who ratted out on Jon (true or otherwise), then you know it's more about Jon than Kate...she's trying to paint him as the bad guy in all of this. Good grief. They better dig up the truth or it's gonna be bust.

There's also no way they'll dig for any new information. I'm sure they'll resurrect old interviews and clips and it will be a repeat of things we've already heard and seen; just like they do with all of their other 'true hollywood stories'.

No Thank you. I'll definitely pass on this show. I won't give either network the satisfaction of thinking I care enough about her to tune in. I don't watch her show and I certainly won't watch a show about her.

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
This is exactly what I've been thinking. You would think if she is going to manufacture all her "pap" pictures, she could show a little variety. Kate going out to lunch with a friend, taking the kids to the movies or bowling, going to a local restaurant. Maybe taking the kids to an extra curricular activity like ballet, gymnastics, basketball etc. Most tabloid pictures of REAL stars show them enjoying some time with their kids!! Or maybe going out to lunch with a girlfriend etc. Kate has no friends, no family and refuses to do anything fun with her kids. It is laughable and pathetic to think this Chris character jumps at the chance when she calls to say "I'll be at Target tomorrow and then getting a tan and picking up a box." It is just unbelievable that these are pictures worth printing. She really is just showcasing her very sad and lonely life.

Also, what pap would trek all the way out in freezing snowy weather to take mundane pics of KG - oh, the one that's on Kart's payroll, of course.

Beth12 said...

Wow, I dress warmer than that and I live in Phoenix! These were definitely a photo op for Kate. She should really lay off the meds before she calls Chris because she doesn't look good at all!!

Our roads here (PA) are bone dry. You never would have known it snowed. I must say that PennDot did a decent clean-up job this time! Likewise, there is no snow on the sidewalks or in parking lots. Come tomorrow, though, it may be a different story and the kids could have another snow day.

The jacket thing has me concerned. I have not seen anyone (and I mean anyone) without a heavy jacket or coat. It's really that miserable, damp raw cold that goes straight through you. I guess my question is WHY.

****

My question is: Why are you spending time trying to figure this out? If she's cold, so what? It's her business. She is not harming anyone, so what difference does it make to you?

Good Lord . Does that woman ever do anything around the house.. Seriously, with a house that size you'd think she'd have floors to wash, laundry and every other thing that keeps Mothers busy when the kids are off to school.

There are plenty of hours in the day. It's possible to go shopping, visit the tanning salon and do chores at home.

How does Eric Roberts have any releavance whatsoever to Kate??? He called her a child-abusing monster, now he tells E! she is not a "bad person"?

Last time I checked child abusing monsters are bad people.

Personally I think anyone who exploits their kids are bad people, period.

Again, why do we care what Eric Roberts thinks? For this True Hollywood story to have any merit at all they need to actually find people who might be helpful to the story.

Administrator said...

Interest article about Steve's parents. Says they think Kate is a husband-stealer.

Good for them standing up for Gina and not warming up to someone who is making a fool out of their son.

Also I like the comment that Kate fancies Steve her partner while Steve is just like, yeah uh NO. I think for Steve this actually is a JOB and he is in denial how it looks and what it does to his own family, for Kate it's an affair in her head.

Administrator said...

There are also plenty of kids to exploit money out of to pay for nannies and housekeepers to do all that is necessary at home so Kate can call Chris and go out.

Administrator said...

Forgot to add, assuming that article about Steve's parents is true. Who knows. They did get their names.

------------------------------------------------
True, she's not harming anyone by going without a coat. Would you care to discuss the other aspects of her life? Do you think she's harming her children by the incessant filming and her attitude towards them? Is she harming Jon? Is it ok if she is harming Jon? How about her relatives? Is it ok that she has cut them out of her life, and by extension, her kid's lives? Lets discuss this and see if you have any opinions of substance. The drive by posting is getting old.

K8SUCKS said...

Who Cares - K8 not wearing a coat in frigid PA weather just proves that her being "frozen to the bone" was her lame excuse for being a little bitch in Alaska. She wasn't being pampered, she wasn't the center of attention, to h8ll with the kids having any sort of fun. She was outta there BECAUSE SHE WAS COLD, even tho she was wearing plenty of good gear and it wasn't that cold to begin with. It's not rocket science.

Admin, I totally agree that this is a JOB ( a horrendously horrendous one at that) for Steve, but he is too obtuse or greedy himself to see the damage it is doing to his own reputaion and family. I also agree about Eric Roberts. When he "stood up" to declare K8 a child abuser, all I could think was " and who is this guy and why do we care what HE says ?"

Administrator said...

With Eric Roberts it's sort of like....isn't your own child in the business? I mean it's a bit of the pot calling the kettle black. Not to mention he has not had such a perfect record himself. One minute he's calling Kate a child abuser the next he's saying she's not a bad person? Which is it? He sounds like a real peace of work and I do not care what he has to say about this, the guy has no credibility. I guess I agree with the sheeple on this one, will wonders never cease.

Personally I care a hell of a lot more what some of the PhDs have said about Kate and the exploitation, I posted the articles here as they have spoken out. Some D-list celeb's opinion is highly irrelevant.

Mr Roberts said...

I believe it's a different Eric Roberts.

Administrator said...

Nope, it's not someone else, that's THEE Eric Roberts, if a D-lister deserves that designation. The same one who called Kate a child abuser. They said he is with Natural Child Project. Google it, that's Eric Roberts's charity.

she's a tool said...

To Who Cares: sure, Kate being underdeessed for the cold doesn't hurt anyone, but her constant parading around for photo ops makes her look foolish and desperate and that couldn't be good for the kids. How embarrassing to have a mom wasting money on plastic surgery to try to look hot so she can be photographed. How embarrassing that she's usually dressed in clothing that is too tight, too revealing and inappropriate. How sad thatvehe has no problem with the cold weather if a pap that she called is there to take her picture yet she couldn't bear the 40-50 degree weather in Alaska even though the kids were having a ball. Part of showing love for your kids is presenting yourself in a way that they can be proud of, or at least not humilated by. Dressing like a slut, trying to look like a sexpot and begging to have your picture taken is not the way to go. Not to mention that she is too old and too genetically unblessed to pull it off. No doubt her kids' peers laugh at this woman. That's why people get irritated by Kate dressed in a tight sweater wandering around a parking lot in full hair and makeup.

Here's what bothers me about these drive-by sheeple. Either they are just here to stir the pot, and/or they have absolutely no ability to see beyond the noses on their faces. They can't connect one event with another and make conclusions based on the evidence. Obviously, Who Cares couldn't figure this out -- Kate not wearing a jacket (with a bare chest and neck)in the PA winter weather exposes the duplicity of the camping experience.

They would do best to make no comment at all, because when they do, it only serves to support our contention that there is no merit to their comments. But, of course, they can't understand that for them, silence would be golden.

Anyone see Real Housewives tonight? It was very sad to hear Kim Richards, a former child star, talk about how aware she was that she was supporting the family, their lifestyle, the whole thing. She didn't say this like it was something she was proud of, or enjoyed. It was more like....my childhood was ODD because of this.

She said she worked every day of her childhood. She blames it for her social difficulties. She said her other sisters didn't work as much and had a lot more time for friends and schools

Kim Richards is 46 years old. 46. And she is still dealing with the fallout of being a child star.

It makes me shudder to think about the Gosselin kids at 46 talking about how aware they TOO were that they were supporting the family and their mother's lifestyle and how much they missed out on.

Administrator said...

I suppose I could just not publish those comments.

Moose, you nailed it. They always act like any comments about Kate are made in a vacuum. They refuse to acknowledge, either because they are in denial or they really can't see it, the connection to so many things. Her expense rap star lifestyle is paid by the KIDS, get it? Her embarrassing moments embarrass her KIDS too, get it? Not wearing a coat has to do with her obsession with showing off her body and her lies about being cold in Alaska, get that too?

I certainly understand the duplicity you mention above...Kate whining about the cold in Alaska and Kate in a photo op jacketless in the cold.

However, do you understand the simplicity of the statement made by "Who Cares" which was just that...who cares anymore? The point has been made a scores of times. Does each person who recognizes the duplicity need to say it? This question can be asked about a myriad of photo ops she choreographs. She does something outrageous...you comment...weekly. Some old, same old.

Who cares? Is this for the children in some way I don't understand?

I get it all, but I honestly don't get the benefit of the repetitiveness.

Not only that but the thing I find most hysterical is people who post here and say "who cares."

Because in fact they're posting here. They know what goes on here. They obviously care enough to read and post.

The people who really don't care don't ever come here to point that out.

The truth about the "drive by" posters is that they take what's being said here and go back to that other blog and rip every word apart. When they're done with that they start on the posters here. If it wasn't for "this" blog they would have nothing to talk about at the "other" blog. LMAO

Those drive-by posters are hilarious to me. They come here to troll then go back to their own blogs to talk about how nice they are and how we are haters. Do they think we are as stupid as they are? Guess what "Who Cares?" You aren't sly, you are annoying.

Bubbles said...

I don't think it's meds. Kate loves 2 things: getting attention, and getting "stuff." I think she has a shopping addiction, and that's why she goes to Target so often and receives so many packages at the UPS store. Then top that with getting her picture taken, and you have the rare glimpse of a cheerful Kate. We've heard stories of how greedy she was at Gymboree when she got free clothes. We rarely see her or the kids wear the same thing twice. She's admitted to having a lot of shoes. We've seen her "stock" of various products in the basement.

AuntieAnn said...

Bubbles -- Maybe TLC can get her to do a crossover show with Hoarders Buried Alive because she does whored I mean hoard. Seriously, where is she putting all that "stuff" she's constantly dragging home?

AuntieAnn said...

And maybe that's why they don't film inside Bo Peep's mcmansion anymore. The place is probably a GD pigsty. Bwahaha. Wouldn't that just be the icing on the cake.

Gosselin8ComeFirst said...

Was just reading the Mary Hart interview on another site and when asked about the expulsion of 2 kids, Kate answers: "Two of my children, no, are being, tutored at home, umm, with a teacher who is working closely with our kindergarten teachers in school doing the identical curriculum. The pressure was getting to them. We have the divorce anger mixed in with that, they need, ha (exhales) some breathing time. The goal is to get them back in school as soon as possible."

With that said, the woman proceeds/continues to plan a 3 week trip to Australia,pulling the remaining children out of school to film! Here is a very blatant example of how her words never match her actions, and her kids' well being is NOT EVER a priority. I know this is not new info, but in re-reading her interview, the irony of her words and actions irritated the crap out me. I may change my name to IronicKate, as she projects an image of a supermom, but with very few exceptions, actually does what is best for her, not the kids. The list is long, but with that said, what did they kids gain from the Australia trip:
1) Being pulled out of school, the only time they have to be an individual, socially see their clasmates/friends, and know that their education is a priority. Lesson: Education/friends/normalcy is not a priority, it is all about the perks for Kate. (Of course, they should not be filming to support their mom at all).
2) Going on constant trips- If everything is kosher at home, and this show is about a mom handling day to day parenting, how will this show ever appeal to any mom in their day to day duties. I am wondering why they never ever film at home anymore, and there is very likely a good reason for this. None of which has to do with the kids's best interests.
3) Can't speak for anyone else, but one of the greatest joys of Christmas break was the down time. Sleeping in, spending time with friends and family, sledding (yes, there was a lot of sledding in the area), making snowmen, snow ball fights, relaxing- this can be the greatest "vacation" as many of you know for kids on Christmas break. Even doing nothing special is a break from routine. Not good enough for Kate as SHE gets no enjoyment out of this. How sad and selfish.
4) "The presssure was getting to them." Yep- it sure was and will continue to build unless Kate changes her priorities from filming to what is best for her kids.

The decisions that are being made for the kids, by the Queen, reflect time and time again, that nothing is or ever will be about the kids.(ie- Alaska camping trip, etc...) Does she even ask the kids what they would like to do? Rhetorical. But again, these kids need a GAL, and quickly.

I have chronic pain also. It's been un-diagnosed for almost 5 years now. It SUCKS & I know exactly what you are going through. The doctors, the meds, the surgeries, the tests, everything...it's a hard road, but stay strong, have positive thoughts, & the body & mind will help you heal & feel better through those thoughts. (can you tell I study holistic healing? & herbalism) It really has helped me. Adaptogens work well too.

About Kate & her errands. Where else would she go. She needs us to talk to about her. She does it to stay relevant, that's all. She is not relevant in any other capacity, is she? Just photos. No talent, no acting gigs, no TV spots, no commercials, no magazine covers, NOTHING. Just photos of her running meaningless errands. BORING. Something moms do every damn day. Hell, I was at Target just the other day, & my son took my picture with his celly, should I post it on Facebook? Would that make me famous as well? Kate is nothing if not predictable, & a loser.

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

I still agree with the poster awhile back that said Kart probably had to take a dump during the Alaska campout and was too embarrassed to go in a bucket. I didn't watch, but I heard she just sat in the tent freaking out and wouldn't budge. Sounds like she had some stomach upset going on and started panicking. I can't see any other reason for that weird behavior I've heard about.

As for her not wearing a coat to Target, I can picture her having a nice, warm car waiting for her. Maybe she had a driver to schlep her around, considering these are "work-related" errands. Yes, this is her J.O.B. Way to contribute to society, Kate.

Another thing, is she still getting comped for shopping at Target? Does she not shop anywhere else? How many kitchen appliances and houseware goods does one need? I doubt she's buying clothing there. I was recently thinking of how the whole family were/are walking advertisements for a bunch of sponsors that liked the cheap advertising. No wonder Kart is smiling like a loon, she probably just walked out with a bunch of free stuff she doesn't need.

Bubbles said...

Good point, Aeris. Anyone know if the Target where Kate is always shopping is a SuperTarget that also has groceries? I always assumed it was, but just realized maybe it's not.

That is funny that you should say they are walking advertisemtns.

Did any of you see the movie, "The Joneses"? Starring Demi Moore and David Duchovny

Plot: A picture-perfect family headed by Kate and Steve Jones (HA! Kate and Steve Neild!), with children Jenn & Mick (et al), moves into an upper-middle class suburban neighborhood. In reality, they are a fake family hired by a marketing company as a way to introduce new luxury-level products, using undercover marketing techniques.

Sound familiar!!!!????

No other reason, really ? K8's behavior wasn't "weird". She was a whiny, miserable biatch from the get-go. H8ll, even Sarah's Dad said as much, that she bitched from the time she got there. I doubt he is a jellus hater.

And, call me crazy but I don't think K8's bathroom needs are a reason for her to yet again ruin the fun for her children or be an ungrateful guest to the Palin family. These excuses are just absurd.

I agree, but I was also thinking that her euphoria has a lot to do with finally the kids are back in school and not in her hair. The long Australia trip must have worn on her nerves big time with the kids constantly around her; she hates them.
Also, she could be on some strong medication.

There are nine people in her household. I'm sure they go through a ton of consumable goods -- paper towels, toilet paper, soap, laundry detergent, etc., etc. Why is it so surprising that she buys a lot of stuff at Target?

The Labor Committee appointment came after Murt’s investigation into the state’s child labor laws, in particular how they pertained to child actors in so-called reality TV. “I am very pleased and honored by this assignment,” Murt said. “Be assured that I will reintroduce my legislation to make sure the kids who work in television and film in Pennsylvania are protected physically, emotionally and financially. I trust the committee will act quickly on my legislation and move it to whole house the for consideration.”
Murt’s experience as a teacher will be a major asset to the Education and Human Services committees. Murt has a long commitment to aiding students with special needs and making sure the funds dedicated to them are used efficiently.
As an army reserve staff sergeant with the 656th Area Support Group, Murt remains committed to helping veterans make the transition to civilian life. “My responsibilities on the Veterans Affair Committee will include making sure our veterans receive all the services they are due, especially veterans injured during their service.” The committee also oversees the state’s emergency preparedness systems.

I really don't know if Target has groceries, I've never bought such things from there. My comment was more tongue-in-cheek, I'm sure she buys consumables there. It's just that we never see photos of her shopping anywhere else, and I think this stems from an ongoing deal she or TLC has with Target. Just my speculation.

Thanks, SnowGlobe, for the info on the moose dog. I can't bear to watch Kart at all, not even in the Palin episode.

I'm having posting problems, but I'll try this again!

Glad you know you work for Target!! Sometimes I wonder where I even am! LOL!

I was in "Kate's" Target not too long ago, and the little girl ahead of me told her mom that she was cold. The clerk said that yes, there were problems with the heating system and she was cold, too. The other gal there said, "I think it's always chilly in here."

If you're hot, perhaps you guys just aren't shopping (or working) at the right Target, or maybe we country folks are always cold (except for Kate, of course, who is only cold on camping trips with the Palins!). Maybe not all Targets are created equal because there's one in the next county over that is hotter than you know where!

Gosselin8ComeFirst said...

Likewise, I don't often shop at Target, but then I do not have unending gifts cards either.
Where I live you can get non perishables at good prices - toilet paper, tissues, paper towels, platifc trash bags,laundry detergent, Oxyclean, fabric softener, softener sheets, soap, notebooks and paper products for the kids schooling needs,... the list goes on and on. But I am sure Kate loves using her gift cards for advertisement, and thus we have the huge smile. Snickering... didn't spend a penny and all I had to do was walk out of the store with Target bags, in order to get my next $5,000 gift card. What a scam, call Chris so he can photo my target bags, so the next gift card comes rolling in. Double bonus - New gift cards and $$$ for photos. No wonder why she is laughing... Some of my disgust belongs to Target for making this possible. And Chris, as well.

Re: shopping at Target for paper goods etc.

My dad used to buy toilet paper through a distributer sort of place, a couple cases at a time to save. Wouldn't there be somewhere in the bigger cities to order stuff by the case like that? She surely could find room to store alot in that monstrous sized house. It could save her alot of money on paper products since she uses so much and gas for all the trips she makes there. (Unless she is getting it free) Isn't there a warehouse sort of store like Sam's club to buy in bulk?

Gosselin8ComeFirst said...

My guess is that neither Sam's Club or BJ's has offered her gift cards(freebies). Looks like Target has been very generous to the "poor" Gosselin family, all for advertisement. Otherwise, Kate would not waste her time there.

Jon and Kate used to shop at a Sams when the tups were young and at the beginning of the show. TLC did an episode that showed them loading up on supplies and they talked about the large quantities the family went through so quickly. Viewers thought oh, how nice that a young family is watching their money and saving by shopping at a warehouse store. Wrong!

The truth came out as it usually does, that they'd been gifted a Sams gift certificate (someone will remember the amount, I'm sure but I think it might have been $5000) and they didn't pay for a thing! Kate made a huge deal about how she watched store ads and to save money, but then everyone figured out she was spending more money shopping there and buying the products she did than if she'd have shopped at a regular store and bought when things were on sale.

There is a Sams for her if she wants to go there, but there's no longer a gift certificate in her pocket and she'd have to use her own money this time.

Questions said...

^^^^

I don't follow. Kate gets $5000 gift cards from Target by promoting them in the pap photos? How do you know this?

Aeris said...

Both Kate and Jon learned how to get free stuff awhile ago. TLC helped this by bribing them into filming certain events in the early days, in exchange for free stuff. We can safely assume the tups bunkbeds and the upgrades made to the E-Town house were paid for by TLC, as long as they were filmed. That includes the twins' attic bedroom, the new carpeting, window blinds and the Coleman camping gear, to name a few. I think J&K got a new bed or bedroom set, as well. This turned into getting free goods and services just for using them on air. That includes the tups infamous 4th birthday cupcake trip and other filming events where we got the name of the store/business.

In 2008 when they were trying to market their family, Kate had business deals going with Walmart and Kmart. I'm honestly trying to remember how Target fits in, but these pap photos are plenty of advertising for Target. New "pap" photos of Kate bring in a lot of online traffic, thousands of hits on these gossip sites. Perhaps Starbucks is paying her off, as well? We don't know for sure, but the fact that we only see her at these two establishments sends up a red flag.

That's just total BS that Kate gets 5000 dollar gift certificates at Target. I could see her getting one when she first gave birth as a way of helping the family out but now that she's a multi millionaire I'm sure that is not true. The Kate lovers have this theory that Kate doesn't ever spend money because everything is comped or donated. Rubbish ! Just another way they try and cover up her foolish spending habits.

What about UPS, Fed Ex, and all of her mailings? Does she get free shipping as well? How about the tanning salon? Party City? Giant food store? Whole Foods? Hair stylist? PETCO, Toys R Us? We don't see her only in the two establishments you mentioned.

I find it hard to believe that volumes of people shop online at Target because she is photographed at the store. I doubt that those who are not sheeple are going to flock to Target online because Kate's been photographed loading her cart there. She doesn't have that much retail power. The only ones who would do this are those who emulate her and think that because she shops there, they should, too. However, aren't there only four sheeple left?

Penny said: "I think it's an assumption on the part of many bloggers that she gets her Target shopping comped."

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
Do you think that every employee at Target had to sign a CA? If not, what is preventing any one of them from disclosing the business arrangement between Target/Kate/TLC? They must know if she uses gift cards. However, if indeed she is comped, she could be using a TLC card and the employees (check-out) would be no wiser.

suze said...

So glad you think Kate's outfit is modest and appropriate. You must be a member of the Fashion Police?

suze said...

or maybe she just likes Target and it is a convenient drive from her home. Maybe Sam's or Walmart is harder to get to or too crowded or too whatever. I happen to like Target too because it isnt packed like Walmart and its a much cleaner/neater store. People do have preferences for a variety of reasons!

She's not being comped and TLC isn't paying for any of it. That's why she makes 250,000 an episode. I heard she buys everything for the kids at Target so she can save her money for things that are important like stuff for herself.

I think you heard wrong. Just another one of those internet rumors. She shops at Old Navy for the kids (photos of them shopping there online). In addition, they were school shopping at Boscovs at the Berkshire Mall. I have run into her at the mall a few times, buying things for the kids.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I'm having posting problems, but I'll try this again!

Glad you know you work for Target!! Sometimes I wonder where I even am! LOL!

I was in "Kate's" Target not too long ago, and the little girl ahead of me told her mom that she was cold. The clerk said that yes, there were problems with the heating system and she was cold, too. The other gal there said, "I think it's always chilly in here."

If you're hot, perhaps you guys just aren't shopping (or working) at the right Target, or maybe we country folks are always cold (except for Kate, of course, who is only cold on camping trips with the Palins!). Maybe not all Targets are created equal because there's one in the next county over that is hotter than you know where!

Some of my disgust belongs to Target for making this possible.

I don't follow. Kate gets $5000 gift cards from Target by promoting them in the pap photos? How do you know this?

*************
Jon and Kate got a gift certificate for Sams when the tups were young at the beginning of the show. I "think" it was $5000. I think it's an assumption on the part of many bloggers that she gets her Target shopping comped.

Large Family, Lots To Buy said...

Another thing, is she still getting comped for shopping at Target? Does she not shop anywhere else? How many kitchen appliances and houseware goods does one need? I doubt she's buying clothing there.

***

There are nine people in her household. I'm sure they go through a ton of consumable goods -- paper towels, toilet paper, soap, laundry detergent, etc., etc. Why is it so surprising that she buys a lot of stuff at Target?

Kookie Koatless Kate said...

No wonder Kart is smiling like a loon, she probably just walked out with a bunch of free stuff she doesn't need.
*********
I agree, but I was also thinking that her euphoria has a lot to do with finally the kids are back in school and not in her hair. The long Australia trip must have worn on her nerves big time with the kids constantly around her; she hates them.
Also, she could be on some strong medication.

nanb - Could you suggest, by way of a money saver, that they take the temp down to 68 deg? I am ALWAYS roasting in Target! Thanks

K8SUCKS said... Who Cares - K8 not wearing a coat in frigid PA weather just proves that her being "frozen to the bone" was her lame excuse for being a little bitch in Alaska. She wasn't being pampered, she wasn't the center of attention, to h8ll with the kids having any sort of fun. She was outta there BECAUSE SHE WAS COLD, even tho she was wearing plenty of good gear and it wasn't that cold to begin with. It's not rocket science.

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

I still agree with the poster awhile back that said Kart probably had to take a dump during the Alaska campout and was too embarrassed to go in a bucket. I didn't watch, but I heard she just sat in the tent freaking out and wouldn't budge. Sounds like she had some stomach upset going on and started panicking. I can't see any other reason for that weird behavior I've heard about.

As for her not wearing a coat to Target, I can picture her having a nice, warm car waiting for her. Maybe she had a driver to schlep her around, considering these are "work-related" errands. Yes, this is her J.O.B. Way to contribute to society, Kate.

Another thing, is she still getting comped for shopping at Target? Does she not shop anywhere else? How many kitchen appliances and houseware goods does one need? I doubt she's buying clothing there. I was recently thinking of how the whole family were/are walking advertisements for a bunch of sponsors that liked the cheap advertising. No wonder Kart is smiling like a loon, she probably just walked out with a bunch of free stuff she doesn't need.

Gosselin8ComeFirst said...

Was just reading the Mary Hart interview on another site and when asked about the expulsion of 2 kids, Kate answers: "Two of my children, no, are being, tutored at home, umm, with a teacher who is working closely with our kindergarten teachers in school doing the identical curriculum. The pressure was getting to them. We have the divorce anger mixed in with that, they need, ha (exhales) some breathing time. The goal is to get them back in school as soon as possible."

With that said, the woman proceeds/continues to plan a 3 week trip to Australia,pulling the remaining children out of school to film! Here is a very blatant example of how her words never match her actions, and her kids' well being is NOT EVER a priority. I know this is not new info, but in re-reading her interview, the irony of her words and actions irritated the crap out me. I may change my name to IronicKate, as she projects an image of a supermom, but with very few exceptions, actually does what is best for her, not the kids. The list is long, but with that said, what did they kids gain from the Australia trip:
1) Being pulled out of school, the only time they have to be an individual, socially see their clasmates/friends, and know that their education is a priority. Lesson: Education/friends/normalcy is not a priority, it is all about the perks for Kate. (Of course, they should not be filming to support their mom at all).
2) Going on constant trips- If everything is kosher at home, and this show is about a mom handling day to day parenting, how will this show ever appeal to any mom in their day to day duties. I am wondering why they never ever film at home anymore, and there is very likely a good reason for this. None of which has to do with the kids's best interests.
3) Can't speak for anyone else, but one of the greatest joys of Christmas break was the down time. Sleeping in, spending time with friends and family, sledding (yes, there was a lot of sledding in the area), making snowmen, snow ball fights, relaxing- this can be the greatest "vacation" as many of you know for kids on Christmas break. Even doing nothing special is a break from routine. Not good enough for Kate as SHE gets no enjoyment out of this. How sad and selfish.
4) "The presssure was getting to them." Yep- it sure was and will continue to build unless Kate changes her priorities from filming to what is best for her kids.

The decisions that are being made for the kids, by the Queen, reflect time and time again, that nothing is or ever will be about the kids.(ie- Alaska camping trip, etc...) Does she even ask the kids what they would like to do? Rhetorical. But again, these kids need a GAL, and quickly.

AuntieAnn said...

And maybe that's why they don't film inside Bo Peep's mcmansion anymore. The place is probably a GD pigsty. Bwahaha. Wouldn't that just be the icing on the cake.

Chingada said...

Those drive-by posters are hilarious to me. They come here to troll then go back to their own blogs to talk about how nice they are and how we are haters. Do they think we are as stupid as they are? Guess what "Who Cares?" You aren't sly, you are annoying.

Administrator said...

Not only that but the thing I find most hysterical is people who post here and say "who cares."

Because in fact they're posting here. They know what goes on here. They obviously care enough to read and post.

The people who really don't care don't ever come here to point that out.

Well folks, looks like Katie Irene is going to have an E True Hollywood Story about her life, come Feb. 2. I know I can't wait!

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

Here's what bothers me about these drive-by sheeple. Either they are just here to stir the pot, and/or they have absolutely no ability to see beyond the noses on their faces. They can't connect one event with another and make conclusions based on the evidence. Obviously, Who Cares couldn't figure this out -- Kate not wearing a jacket (with a bare chest and neck)in the PA winter weather exposes the duplicity of the camping experience.

They would do best to make no comment at all, because when they do, it only serves to support our contention that there is no merit to their comments. But, of course, they can't understand that for them, silence would be golden.

she's a tool said...

To Who Cares: sure, Kate being underdeessed for the cold doesn't hurt anyone, but her constant parading around for photo ops makes her look foolish and desperate and that couldn't be good for the kids. How embarrassing to have a mom wasting money on plastic surgery to try to look hot so she can be photographed. How embarrassing that she's usually dressed in clothing that is too tight, too revealing and inappropriate. How sad thatvehe has no problem with the cold weather if a pap that she called is there to take her picture yet she couldn't bear the 40-50 degree weather in Alaska even though the kids were having a ball. Part of showing love for your kids is presenting yourself in a way that they can be proud of, or at least not humilated by. Dressing like a slut, trying to look like a sexpot and begging to have your picture taken is not the way to go. Not to mention that she is too old and too genetically unblessed to pull it off. No doubt her kids' peers laugh at this woman. That's why people get irritated by Kate dressed in a tight sweater wandering around a parking lot in full hair and makeup.

Mr Roberts said...

I believe it's a different Eric Roberts.

Administrator said...

With Eric Roberts it's sort of like....isn't your own child in the business? I mean it's a bit of the pot calling the kettle black. Not to mention he has not had such a perfect record himself. One minute he's calling Kate a child abuser the next he's saying she's not a bad person? Which is it? He sounds like a real peace of work and I do not care what he has to say about this, the guy has no credibility. I guess I agree with the sheeple on this one, will wonders never cease.

Personally I care a hell of a lot more what some of the PhDs have said about Kate and the exploitation, I posted the articles here as they have spoken out. Some D-list celeb's opinion is highly irrelevant.

Who Cares said...

My question is: Why are you spending time trying to figure this out? If she's cold, so what? It's her business. She is not harming anyone, so what difference does it make to you?
------------------------------------------------
True, she's not harming anyone by going without a coat. Would you care to discuss the other aspects of her life? Do you think she's harming her children by the incessant filming and her attitude towards them? Is she harming Jon? Is it ok if she is harming Jon? How about her relatives? Is it ok that she has cut them out of her life, and by extension, her kid's lives? Lets discuss this and see if you have any opinions of substance. The drive by posting is getting old.

Administrator said...

Interest article about Steve's parents. Says they think Kate is a husband-stealer.

Good for them standing up for Gina and not warming up to someone who is making a fool out of their son.

Also I like the comment that Kate fancies Steve her partner while Steve is just like, yeah uh NO. I think for Steve this actually is a JOB and he is in denial how it looks and what it does to his own family, for Kate it's an affair in her head.

Good Lord . Does that woman ever do anything around the house.. Seriously, with a house that size you'd think she'd have floors to wash, laundry and every other thing that keeps Mothers busy when the kids are off to school.

There are plenty of hours in the day. It's possible to go shopping, visit the tanning salon and do chores at home.

Beth12 said...

Wow, I dress warmer than that and I live in Phoenix! These were definitely a photo op for Kate. She should really lay off the meds before she calls Chris because she doesn't look good at all!!

I'M HOT!!! said...

I normally go without a coat when the hot flashes from hell kick in......however I'm pushing 60 and live in AZ.

un-morphed said...

One druggie can always recognize another druggie-when mine kick in, I get very warm, I could easily go without a coat, even when it is cold outside. But it is just my opinion, can't say for sure, but the eyes tell many stories.
Thanks, Pink:
So sorry, Carol:)
