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. http://twitpic.com/3m4p9q
Another eye witness reported seeing them about to fly out of Sydney airport this morning. Perhaps off to New Zealand now?

Good lord, didn't take her long to pull out the bikini and show off the tatas, did it? Hope the kids actually got to swim and have some fun....but sadly, I doubt it!

They finally sent her to Botany Bay said...

What a tool. If she wants to appear to have a waist she should have worn the darker color up top and white on the bottom. Get a life Kate, and let your kids have theirs back.

Gosselin8ComeFirst said...

The "Good Bra" boobs are expanding and are heading west. Notice how she is not paying one iota of attention to her kids. Oh, that's right, the supermom hired two nannies to pay attention to her kids. After all, her TLC contract does not actually require her to be a mother. Way to go TLC. You have created a monster and an example of what every mother should NEVER be!

Administrator said...

The older the kids get the more embarrassed they're going to be to be made a complete spectacle of themselves on a public beach, or any public place. Mady and Cara are at the age where EVERYTHING is embarrassing and I can imagine this kind of thing would be downright mortifying to many children that age.

A whole load of nothing, about a big ole' boobied, wrinkled, and bitter nothin'.

Administrator,
that is exactly what I thinking! As a mother who raised a teenage girl myself, I know that right around 12-13ish their behavior changes, they become extremely self aware of body image- and of aware of those around them. It's a sensitive time. When my daughter was preteen I realized I needed to tone down my way of dressing, no more bikinis! Just because you can, doesn't you should :) And to this day (she is going on 19) I still wear board shorts at the pool and I keep the 'girls' well covered when my daughter, or any young children, are around.

Trucker said...

That beach looks super crowded, not fun.

Boobs heading West??? I think you mean South, but really, why does anyone care about her breasts?

So much more important things to be concerned with....

Anonymous said...

There is something wrong here. To begin with TLC is a business.
for them to spend all this money on a failing show is not logical. The kids on the beach could have been filmed stateside. Why are they not going to monuments? Where do Steves parents Live?

Anonymous said...

I keep waiting for the announcement of "Kate and Mate plus 8".

Administrator said...

Some day when the kids want to actually see the money they made for working on an actual holiday (do they get time and a half for working holidays most everyone else gets off?) Kate will have to say, Kids you're lookin' at it.

Gosselin8ComeFirst said...

Trucker - After my first sentence (snark), I think I elaborated on the more important things at hand.

Administratgor, I am SO GLAD you have BANNED these anonymous sources of "information". They were truly becoming a pain in the butt. And I do agree, some people just like to make up stories for the attention. Stick to putting up posts that are VERIFIABLE. All of this unverified, unsubstantiated rumor stuff HAS GOT TO STOP. I'm sick of it too.

Lolly said...

"Admin...There is something wrong here."

I have felt this way since this trip was announced. Not sure WHY, but it just seems bizarre, strange and weird. I hardly EVER feel this way. Anyone else have these feelings? I cannot for the life of me figure out why I feel this way.

Another beach scene, Yawn, EVEN thought it is Australia an absolutely gorgeous country, but it is still another beach scene. Just had to get in the bikini scenes I suppose. So much to see there, for the kids to learn from.

I tried to send a message though and I got a strange message--Edit error--Never had it that before, and I only hit the button once. If this is a duplicate, please delete the first one.

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

They will be told to get a job - Kate said so herself, on "The View" or some talk-show like that, when the host asked her will she buy a car for each of the kids (or something like that, don't remember exactly).

Rearranging the Deck Chairs on the Titanic (aka Anita) said...

Yex, that was the Ellen Degeneres show and Khate Grosselin said that her kids would have to buy their own cars.

Lolly said...

Yex Kate also said on Ellen, when she was going throught that phony ring story, when Ellen asked if the kids were getting diamond rings too, Kate said "When they get a JOB". I was pretty upset that idiot even said that after describing the 8 diamond and mother of pearl ring she was going to buy. (When her finances were better, of course) lolol

Anita said...

Why do we see only one picture? If you saw them on the beach or in the airport, wouldn't you take more than one picture? PR release?

Administrator said...

Kate's comment on Ellen shows what little self-awareness she really has. She fancies herself Bill Gates and if an interviewer asks her about kids and money the canned response is, Oh no my kids won't be spoiled I won't just hand them things they have got to work! Sure that's the response you would want to hear from Bill Gates. But since Kate has been working the kids like plow horses since they were a year old, that's exactly the opposite of what she should say.

I'd say the kids have earned any car they choose, as well as college, a nice house, and to never have to work again. Congratulations, Kate, your kids six years old and they are already at the point where they DESERVE to retire.

PatK said...

They should just do a special titled "Kate's Bikinis Around the World".

That's all it's really about anymore, isn't it?

Administrator said...

Anita it's just someone on the beach on twitter. It's not paparazzi taking a bunch of photos. Most normal people if they really feel the need to take a pic of a celeb would take one and then leave them alone.

PJ's momma said...

She almost looks like she's holding a cigarette, but I know she wouldn't with the crew filming. Bondi Beach is the famous, and most crowded, beach in Sydney. It's where lots of celebs/rich people live like Malibu Beach is. I would have picked Manly Beach, but whatever. (I just wanted the shirt that says I Heart Manly.) We went to the Sunshine Coast and let me tell you, I have never seen a more beautiful beach in my life. Absolutely pristine and spectacular and deserted! Poor kids - I hope they didn't work too long. It is dang hot out there!

Yex said...

Thanks Rearranging and Lolly, I saw that interview only once, on Youtube, and could not believe that Kate would say something like that. If it was meant to be a joke, it was very, very inappropriate and tacky.

Ellie said...

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

I have thought for a while they're (TLC & S&K) waiting it out to go 'public'. Maybe I'm wrong. The whole bodyguard thing doesn't apply anymore. I think they have to give it enough time to report that Steve & Gina have parted ways..blah..blah..blah.. Then one day day Kate will announce something like "He was right under my nose the whole time and I did'nt even see it"!!

Because in the real world don't all the bodyguards take their employers to visit their homeland?

Lolly said...

I cannot help but think of poor Shoka. The TLC website, which is absolutely plastered with Sarah btw, still says under Kate plus 8, "Kate's Big Surprise: Shoka Visits!" Is the poor dog still there? Why say Shoka VISITS? I asked them, but of course, no reply except the canned response.

They are gone for what 3 weeks? Did they put her back at the breeders? Poor dogs have got to be very confused if so.

I am sure they have someone feeding the animals...but the poor dog. Can't stop thinking about Shoka.

****

I also feel that something is strange about this trip. The flurry of stories coming out are very unusual. I am even wondering about the picture in this post...how did someone get that close to take a picture without the bodyguard making them delete it? Did this slip past him or was it allowed?

TLC is spending a lot of money on this trip and I wonder how many of the stories are being put out to gin up interest and attract viewers when the shows are shown. They may be going above the usual stories of Kate being mean or whiny since that is such old news.

I do hope the kids got to see the spectacular fireworks that take place in Sydney, since that is something they could enjoy.

They could just be flying to other places within Australia. I wonder if the flooding is causing them to redo some plans.

Laine said...

The photo was accompanied by a tweet to Jon...I hope that was a sincere statement and not meant as way to get a dig in.

AuntieAnn said...

The nice thing about this photo is that no one is staring at her. Ouch.

It must grind her gears to have to share not only the beach with those damn commoners, but the bathrooms too. heehee.

I don't think dingleballs has the authority to make people delete their photos, does he? They're on a public beach and she's just a notorious idiot who's not the least bit important.

JudyK said...

IMO, there's going to be a big surprise and WOW to this story...I dunno...like Kate meeting Steve's family or them getting married while she's over there. Why the sudden interest in Australia and New Zealand...I'm sure Kate couldn't even find them on a map. Oh...and ENOUGH bikini pics, Kate.

Mimi to 3 said...

You can clearly see the 'disc' in her fake boob. This may be a beautiful pristine beach but for me, if I'm on vacation I don't want to see buildings in the background, but we all know Kate wants the exposure. Her hand does look like she has a cigarette, even though I doubt she does. Who knows, who cares? We all knew she would be out in her bikinis. I actually think she looks good and were it not for the fact that she has young children that are very impressionable, it would be fine to dress like she does. But she is setting a piss poor example for them and the day will come that she will regret these decisions. Should be interesting when the wedding announcement comes out. Hang on for a bumpy ride.

Can't Stop Them All said...

It looks like the person there on the right is also taking a photo with a cell phone. I guess if everybody is doing it purseboy can't be everywhere. They took two body guards to Alaska wonder about here. They said one was a woman. She is remarkably brown for having only been there a few days. She is a tall woman but I can't figure out why she always looks so short. Mady looks happy, the kids look like they are having fun thankfully.

readerlady said...

My first reaction when I saw the pix was that it looks like she's holding a cigarette, too. Maybe she is. Since she's in Australia, where few people know who she is, maybe she figured she could get away with it. She can count on TLC to cover her rear and not let it show up on the final show cut.

I agree that she always looks short. I think it's because her legs aren't long - she has a long torso and short legs.

Sarah said...

I thought she looked like she had her hand in the cigarette holding position too. Those that do it often just automatically hold their hand that way.
I heard there is a huge flood there in Australia. I guess Kate flew out to get away from the dreadful weather. I was kind of hoping the rain ruined her vacation and made it dreadful.

Who started this rumor...on what blog, and when? It seems to have taken on a life of its own.

LisaNH said...

There is definately a distinct pattern whenever pics are realeased of Kate tanning, getting her hair fried in NYC, or visiting Target, a trip or an upcoming show usually follows on the heels of the photo op.

TLC is just trying to build interest in her for the airing of the program, I suspect.

A Pink Straight Jacket for Kate said...

Looks like the lady on the extreme right is taking pictures of the water (or maybe family in the surf?). No one around them appears interested in whats going on in the Gosselin/TLC huddle.

It is quite odd that a network would go ahead and invest so much money on a failing show.

Dallas said...

Oh my lord, I knew she couldn't resist trollopsing around in a bikini again. She is so full of herself.

This must be why she hated Alaska so bad. She had to wear too many clothes and couldn't show off.


On that note, I had never watched the very first episode "Raising Twins and Sextuplets" when they lived in Wyomissing ( I watched it the other night on You Tube ). I cannot BELIEVE how deflated and flat chested she was back then and that she would have the gall now to deny having had a boob job.

I also noticed that she talked to the camera about how SHE had to do everything all by herself, yet there were notes plastered all over the how dictating how jobs/chores are to be done by helpers. What really struck me was how she said she put the babies down at 12:30 for a nap and went back to get them at 4:00.

Good Lord!!!!

And this is after she slept in til 8 am and the babies all waited in their cribs in messy diapers and hungry until she decided to get up and get them. And Jon brought her her coffee and sat it on the night stand while she was still in bed, too lazy to get up.

I had no idea she was this bad and controlling even in the first episode.

===========

In Surviving Twins and Sextuplets, when Kate is describing the personalities of the babies, I remember her saying that Hannah wants to be just like her, and I thought, "Good grief...I hope not!"

And yes, Kate was extremely flat-chested in that orange top!

Australia is a very large country. It is not flooding anywhere near Sydney.

readerlady said...

Actually, there are flood warnings for New South Wales, where Sydney is located. Howeve, Sydney is in the Southern part of NSW and it may be the Northern part that is in danger of floods. I looked it up because some e-friends on another (cat show related) list I belong to may have to evacuate. They live in Queensland, which is N of NSW.

must love dogs said...

I just think that this trip was a waste of time and money spending it on the Gosselins, from the pic it just appears like another beach freebie with the kids whining and complaining along with their mother. I much rather had seen SP go to Australia cause at least she would have made it imformative and fun!!! Won't be watching for sure.

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

This issue has always irritated the crap out of me. Steve has NO legal authority to tell ANYbody what to do. He’s a hired purse-carrier, not a police officer. Even with the elusive title of “bodyguard,” he has absolutely NO authority to insist anyone delete photos from their cameras, or block a public restroom door so that the Queen can use it exclusively, or decide what questions or comments someone at a book signing can ask of her Highness. I wish someone would put him in his place once and for all.

NSW is twice the size of California. Just because there are flood warnings there does not mean there is flooding anywhere near Sydney, which is what I stated. Check the weather forecast.

If I remember correctly, Admin wasn't taking photos, but rat-claws touched her shoulder and told her to move along. The picture deleting stories involved a woman at the Please Touch Museum in Philly, where Stevie told her delete her photos; and also an account from Huffington on the beach at BHI, where he told the writer to delete her photos in exchange for a picture of her with Kate.

There may have been more -- I just don't remember. That said, I wish he would demand that I, or someone I was with, should delete photos. We'd have a verbal war going on. There is no way a purse-carrying lackey would tell me to delete photos. He has no authority whatsoever.

It was Admin who assigned the moniker to Steve after his "rat claw" like fingers dug into her arm when he steered her away from the table where she had asked Kate a question at the book signing in LA in '09.

I don't believe so. That looks more like the new tutor or nanny with her back to the camera. Ashley's hair isn't quite as red as the girl with the blue backpack. But, Ashley is for sure in Australia - she was definitely in the photo at the airport in Sydney!

Open Minded said...

I think it's time we all face reality. Kate and her show aren't going anywhere for the next year. It absolutely does not matter how bad her publicity is. The show is going to continue whether we like it or not. The ratings aren't great, but they are good enough--otherwise, TLC would not continue spending $$ on her and the show.

At this point, I feel certain that the twins are coerced to film. They are preadolescent and acutely aware of their peers, who are undoubtedly filling them in on all Kate's bad publicity. Kate can try to insulate them from the internet, but some of their friends probably have cell phones with internet that they can easily share on the bus. Kate's behavior and horrible clothing choices must be excruciating for the older girls. What in the hell is she teaching them? I am convinced that they are already rebelling big time. This will only increase as they get older. Kate is making huge mistakes right now that will come back to bite her big time...and sooner than she thinks.

Thanks. I couldn't tell exactly. I thought maybe her hair looked that red because of the sunlight. It did look like her legs, though!

readerlady said...

Geography said "NSW is twice the size of California".

Thanks for that information. Geography has never been my strong suit and it's hard to get a handle on the size of something from an internet map. As I said, my friends are in Queensland, which I understand is quite a distance from Sydney.

I read the post from the lady at the Please Touch Museum after the incident with the boobyguard. She posted on one of the blogs - GWOP, I think. She said she was taking pictures of her daughter, who happened to be at one of the water tables when a couple of the tups were there. She had some pretty pointed comments about Kate's behavior, too. I can try to find the post if anyone is interested.

_______________________

What would happen if he demanded someone delete their photos and the other person refused? He can't sue them; it's perfectly legal to take pics with a cell phone! I truly don't understand Kate. She gets mad if no one recognizes her, yet in the Party City episode she wanted the employees to act like they didn't know who she was and people are told to delete their pics of her. She and Stevie are made for each other in that they both think they have authority telling people what to do.

Say Cheese, Steve said...

Smiley asked,

"What would happen if he demanded someone delete their photos and the other person refused?"

=====================

Nothing. Absolutely nothing. He could call real security and they'd laugh his claws right out of there. Or you could call the police and tell them that he was harrassing you. Then you just take your camera or cell phone and walk out, knowing that this was one time he didn't win.

She definitely doesn't have a cigarette in that pic. You can click your cursor twice on the pic and it enlarges. She has her finger pointed weird. And, has she had even bigger boobs "installed"??

Smiley asked,

"What would happen if he demanded someone delete their photos and the other person refused?"

=====================

Nothing. There's no legal expectation of privacy when you are in a public place in the USA (and most, if not all, western countries). Anyone can take anyone else's picture at any time without suffering legal repercussions.

There is no reason ANYONE should feel obligated to negotiate with Neild or anyone else over photos they've taken. If the woman doesn't want her picture taken, she can stay home and stop forcing her children to earn their salary all over the planet.

Oh, wait, that won't work. Regardless, you could take photos all day long of that idiot, and nobody can legally prevent you from doing so - or force you to delete photos.

I am personally sick of Kate getting away with child abuse.

This ay and age and we think it it's of to watch another family?? Why should we know anything about these kids? Tell me why we need to know if they like strawberry or chocolate!! Come on sheeple! I want an answer!! Would you put your kids out there like that? Would you potty train your kids and show their dung on tv? Would you force your kids to "work" in hot weather so you can eat? Would you make your child sit in a highchair with a bib at the age of 5, on national tv? Woukd you throw your precious baby on the laundry room floor when he/she is sick? YOUR precious sweetie ate gum. WOULD YOU tell him/her that they wer naughty because gum got stuck on their luvie?

I am sick of KATE!! Most of all, I will never understand why this shit was ever shown on TV.. I AM GUILTY as sin for watching that.. I thought something was wrong and found blogs like this.. And this was pre divorce..

These kids live in a real life fish bowl. How sad is that?

Administrator said...

Australians jealous haters? Or just know sludge when they see it.

I met Australians everywhere I traveled abroad in school in Europe and the Mideast, I guess they are huge travelers. And they are, hands down, the nicest people I've ever met--next to Canadians.

AuntieAnn said...

They are great people and the ones I've met are really friendly with big hearts and very straight forward when they have something to say. Kate better not start mouthing off down there or they'll throw her to the dingoes.

And thanks for the compliment Admin. We Canadians are for the most part pretty laid back. It's the beer and hockey syndrome, you know, the important stuff in life...ha! We have our villians though too.

Administrator said...

Australians remind me of Canadians in their positive attitude, sense of humor, hospitality, and kindness.

I don't normally generalize a huge group of people but it's just so facinating to me, and no coincidence that every....single....person I meet from those two countries is so salt of the earth.

Administrator said...

You know I have to say even the kiwi Steve at the book signing walked right about to the group of girls in front of me and engaged them in a friendly conversation and was very welcoming (until someone dared ask about child labor laws). He had a good sense of humor and was so friendly just like his counterparts. And the way he cut right to the chase in Inside Kate's World was impressive. He didn't put up with Kate's crap, yet he wasn't an a-hole about telling her so.

Puddymoors said...

Thanks Admin for the great review of Australians! A couple of points I want to make with regard to this photo:
1. People in Australia are touchy about photography in places where kids are wearing not much clothing. Someone unrelated who was taking photos of kids (as this photo clearly is) might be asked to move on by police.
2. The beach appears to be Bondi, very famous, but I don't think as nice as our gorgeous beaches on the Gold Coast. Many famous people swim there. It's also school holidays in the whole of Australia (until the end of January) so there are thousands of people on holidays!) That's why I think this was a stupid time to bring Kate.
3. Floods are affecting mostly Queensland. The state of Queensland is huge, is NSW is the size of California, Qld would be twice that I think! I live in the south east corner of Qld, and own property in a country town 2 hours inland (toward flood area). Most of the area flooded is country, with small country towns, I would suggest even more rural that Pennsylvannia.
4. I cannot get over how the kids are without sun protection! When I go to my local waterpark, almost 80% of kids wear Rash vests to protect them from the sun.

For those worried about the floods, it keeps raining. Huge storms this afternoon where I am, and stretching into the disaster zone. It's terrible!

Reality Bites said...

Personally I believe Steve Neild has shown himself to be overly invested in Kate's personal and professional life. Second, it must be noted that Steve Neild is reportedly living in Kate Gosselin's basement instead of with his wife and kids in Maryland. Attending the Emmy's as Kate's escort/date sealed the deal for me.

cathy518 said...

How ever "nice" his personality, he is still an enabler. Really, would Kate have been able to continue this circus show without Steve's help? It just galls me too that christian Carla and her daughter Ashely are so involved in supporting the continued destruction of these children.

Hippie Chick said...

ANOTHER beach scene? Yawn away K+8 fans. Did the kids get to swim or just look longingly at the water? Oooh, fun!

About Kate in a bikini, whatever. I wear a bikini to the beach. I have a 10 year old son. He isn't embarrassed or ashamed of it. I figure I may as well do it now while I still can! We have other things to rag on Kate about, like her dragging her kids across the country to film, for HER benefit only. We know she's in a bikini for ratings, so be it. I really think TLC & Kate are pulling out every trick in the book at this point anyhow. They are on a sinking ship & they know it. Going to Australia/NZ? Why now? Again, a HUGE money mistake. TLC knows this. They are biding their time. If this particular show bombs (which IMO, it will, who can relate?) they're done with her & her antics.

And this time, the beach, the views, & unfortunately, the wonderful people of Aussie/NZ are NOT going to help. They don't know who the hell the G's are. (This must burn Kate, aww) But WHY now?? For BIG ratings. TLC is trying to pull out all the stops for Kate. Trying to make her its big star again. The kids are older, not as cutesy, TLC knows Kate is hated, loathed & SPA did NOT help. (her comments on Kate's Take are awful), fans are turning against her. This is TLC's last ditch effort. If this doesn't work, bye-bye Kate. Kate knows it too, IMO. Maybe she begged Jon to let her go because he figured it was the end & there was nothing left but this trip. JMO

No, I don't think that is Ashley in the picture of the playmate Mother of the year. Ashley tends to emulate Kate in her style of dress, too little & too tight unfortunately. MTV style. Kate is not the role model I would encourage my daughter to follow.
It appears Steve sons did not leave their school to come on this trip to his homeland.
Kate is not going away and will be in the public eye for a long time I fear, and will do whatever it takes to make that happen. She continues to put herself first, making her image a priority which sends the wrong message to the kids. Emotional responsibilities are just as important as physical.

But TLC, I do not consider Kate Gosselin any sort of positive role model and in the big picture of things in life she is a small concern to me. It is her kids that I fear for and hope by commenting on blogs and talking about her choices to others, I can help stop this abuse. I do consider making the kids film child abuse.

BerksPa said...

Kate in a bikini at a beach ? Wow? What is the demographic TLC is aiming for? Low Rent Truckers who are desperate for a woman, any woman? A woman parading around the beach in a bikini with her brood of 8 children isn't family viewing IMHO. TLC really is scraping the bottom of the barrel here.

BTW I have a good Aussie friend who says no one in their right mind would have kids at a beach in the summer without making them wear a hat. Even at her school all the children must wear a summer hat if they play outside.

Kate's not a real mom, she doesn't even 'play' one on tv. She's a brood mare with a team of children that she drags along in her quest for fame.

BerksPa...
Someone upthread from Australia said the same thing about sun protection. Those kids should be wearing something as it's very hot. I hope those kids don't get sunburned so Kate can get an hour show in. I think Kate probably thinks that SPF 50 will do the trick, but of course, Kate is Kate, & probably didn't do her research about the heat index & such. Again, NOT prepared.
Kate's kids "Mommy, what's that?"
Kate: "It's an Opera House. Wave to the Opera House!"
Kate's Kids: "Mommy, what's that?"
Kate: "It's Sydney Harbour Bridge. Say hi to the bridge!"
Kate's Kids: "Mommy what's that?"
Kate: "It's a Botanical Garden. Say hi the garden!"

I would LOVE to go the King's Park & Botanical Garden. I don't even know if they're close by actually. But still. Take this opportunity to TEACH your kids Kate!!! It IS The LEARNING Channel, is it not??

Here Comes The Sun said...

When I go to my local waterpark, almost 80% of kids wear Rash vests to protect them from the sun.

Kids here typically don't wear them. We slather them up with sunscreen of SPF 90!

Westcoaster said...

4. I cannot get over how the kids are without sun protection! When I go to my local waterpark, almost 80% of kids wear Rash vests to protect them from the sun.

Which is what I have been thinking, about sun protection. My SIL is Australian and my daughter worked for a time in a nursery there. Schools there require kids to wear hats at recess, the sun is that strong. I am quite sure that if anyone was doing any staring at K8 on the beach, it was to comment on her very bare children. My sense, otherwise, is that they could care less about her and her so-called celebrity.

BerksPa said...

Sun:
Heat/Temperature is only a part of it. UV rays are what you need to be concerned about. Australia is much closer to the Equator, hence the more powerful sun rays emitted, which is why the emphasis is for children to protect themselves by at least wearing a hat in addition to sunscreen.

Stumpy said...

Re: Kate and her need for bikinis


Think about it. The past year, the most positive attention/compliments Kate has gotten from the tabloids ( Radar Online ) has been only that she looks great in a bikini
( although I beg to differ. The scars make her look like a shark attack victim, and her stumpy legs...well...enough said ).

Her being a narcissist, she will keep doing what she has to do to keep getting more of those kinds of compliments. It's an adrenaline rush for her to be named in a tabloid as looking hot in a bikini. If she can't be complimented any other way, then it will have to be as a bikini mom.

So, look out for more warm and water related locations for filming. The more opportunities for her to show her skin and tata's, the happier she'll be. And watch out for even more obsessive workouts to be camera ready for her bikini shots.

Her "goal" ( we all know how Kate loves goals ), is to see herself being complimented in a bikini in as many tabloids as possible. This is what motivates an excites her. The People Magazine shoot for her must've felt like a junkie getting high on coke.

My guess for a soon-to-be episode is a K8 cruise or the Atlantis in the Bahamas. Places she can wear as little as possible.

worgikan said...

I've been to Australia - trip of a lifetime. I would jump at a chance to take my kids out of school to visit, all-expenses paid. The major deal-breaker? FILMING my children for national television! It doesn't matter where she goes and what she wears - she whored out her kids for money. Never lose sight of this.
I have identical triplet boys - the biggest concern for me has always been to ensure they develop their own identity. They are 10 years old and fiercely protective of their privacy and independence. Their needs have always come first and they know this. THIS is the greatest gift we can give our children. They are well-traveled kids as we make a family vacation a priority - believe me when I say that those Gosselin kids really don't care if they go on trips or not.
Regarding Bondi - great beach but not the nicest. Kate's bikini is nothing compared to the skimpy ones seen there. And with her orange skin, yellow hair and surgically enhanced body, I doubt any would pay attention to her without the camera crew. She's a very sad, desperate woman.

This isn't new info. It has been reported (ROL, blogs, tab magazines from a 'source') in all the tabs and blogs for months and I believe the rumor goes back almost a year or more. There is no picture of him asleep down there, so I guess we'll have to rely on month long gossip.

AuntieAnn said...

Hopefully someone out of the entire Gosselin entourage would think to put sunscreen on those kids. Even so that's an extreme change in weather conditions from winter in PA to hot summer in Australia. They could get a serious sunburn and end up sick AGAIN. But I guess if they're playing the roll of Kate's children in yet another episode, they have to keep working sick or not to keep those $$ coming in.

betsy said...

You know something is not right about this trip. We haven't seen Booby guards wife around the Mcmansion in quite some time and word has it that Mr Booby guard has been living in that house quite sometime and spending and seen as well over the holidays in that house. Now she happens to drag her 8 kids to the same country Mr Booby guard is from to film even pulling her kids out of school to do it. I have a feeling she will be coming out of the closet with the fact her and Booby guard have fallen in love and will marry. Even People Mag ran an article of how she is looking for a man in 2011, the only thing is she has had one all along, go figure. He probably is introducing Kart and the 8 right now to his family, poor family having to put up with her.

susieq said...

I think the girl in the blue backpack is with the film crew. In many pictures of them filming you quite often see an assistant of some sort in a backpack.

Nobody Likes a Narcissist said...

Well, I don't have much else to add to the comments about this trip. So, I don't often comment on her appearance, but I just have to say this. After someone above posted about the YouTube clips of the original documentary "Surviving Sextuplets and Twins", I decided to finally check it out. I had never seen more than a couple of minutes of this show until mid 2009 (and haven't watched it since), so I'm not too familiar with what Khate was like back then except for what I've read here.

Well, holy cow, the difference is startling. How on earth she can go on national tv with a straight face and claim to not have had a boob job, ("it's just a good bra"), is beyond me. Check these photos out:

Close up of Bondi Beach photo

Screen shot from "Surviving Sextuplets and Twins" show

Old Photo 2

Old Photo 3



That last photo (in the light blue shirt) is most startling in comparison. Who does she think she's kidding? You know, I would have more respect for her if she said from the beginning Hey, I've had eight kids, and it certainly did my boobs no favors. It made me feel really crappy about myself, so I decided I didn't have to be so unhappy with my appearance (especially in my early thirties), so I got a lift and some extra help. But, of course, she doesn't tell the truth too often, does she? It would be one thing is she just refused to comment on the issue, but what I find astounding is that she can lie so publicly and actually think she can get away with it. It certainly tells you a lot about her narcissistic personality.

AuntieAnn said...

@ betsy -- I think you're right and it won't come as too much of a surprise if they do. Jon didn't say for certain she was banging the bodyguard but he hinted at it even before their divorce.

If they are going to tie the knot, all I can say to Steve is good luck, you idiot.

________________________

Can't you see her dealing with eight seasick kids on a cruise? On the fishing boat, she had the option of turning around or cutting it short. If she's stuck on a cruise and the kids are sick, there's not much she's going to be able to do. Once you're onboard, you have to deal with it. No turning back. I've only been sick once on a cruise (storm, with dangerously high seas) and you think you're going to die and angry that you don't.

Oh, sheesh! Then we'll have "Steve and Kate Plus Her Eight Plus His Two" (how many does he have??!!)

Then she will get pregnant, and it will be "Steve and Kate Plus Her Eight Plus His Two Plus Their One"

==========================

I also remember this past summer when all of those "sources" had exclusive stories about him not wearing his wedding ring, complete with photos, when, in fact, he never did wear a wedding ring and was photographed in early 2009 without one. But, this was "breaking news" in the tabloids, so since he wasn't wearing a ring, they MUST be a couple now.

Didn't Queenie mention at one time that she wanted a man like ol' Hoff? Just what those kids need...a witch for a mom and a drunk for her boyfriend. Just sayin'... Maybe this ain't about the purse carrier at all!

Chaz said...

Steve has worked for TLC for a long time. He was married when he went into it. He had children. He was a body guard before he was Kate's body guard.

Jon was a young guy, dazzled by Kate's intentions to catch him. As far as we have ever seen on TV or photos, she wore one-piece swim suits, tee shirts and shorts, and didn't wear spikes or long ear-rings.

Then she began wearing the long ear-rings, ditched Jon, went through her morph into whatever she is now, and Steve has seen it all.

What does anyone think he sees in her? I think he is in it for the money. He has a mature wife and children. I will not believe he has left his family for hers until I see it with my own eyes. He gets well paid. People can put up with a lot for the right money.

I think Kate looks prettier now than in the past photos but in the earlier shots she actually looks happier and more content. Now she just has that arrogant look on her face all the time.

audibleclick said...

I cannot imagine the bodyguard wanting to marry Kate. He'd have to be totally blind not to see her NPD behaviour; surely any sane man would run like hell in the opposite direction, also I'm quite sure that Kate would not marry anyone that she couldn't bully and, from what little, I've read about the bodyguard, he doesn't seem passive enough for her. This trip and everything surrounding it is puzzling to me. My Aussie friends have no idea who she is since many of them don't have the pay channel she is on over there. I've pointed a few of them to the blogs I read and their reaction is either shock or the statement "Don't send that piece of trash over here". I can't imagine TLC is trying to garner more viewers in Oz and they can't position Kate as "likeable" in the U.S. so perhaps their strategy is to market her as the witch that she is. Those poor kids, this will not end well.

You are right, he has seen it all from her. she has gone through quit a change. I find it hard to believe too. Until I see/hear/read about it, I feel the same. Not sure but something is weird about no photo ops and the Mrs not being seen for over a year, though. Afterall they are supposedly "BFF's". That would be a real betrayal, if it is true. BUT, we shall see. Kate lies so much, who knows what is true anymore in her world.

________________________________________________

I thought the same thing, there's no way Rat Claw would marry her if it's true that he's been living in the basement for a few years. Best way to get to know someone is by living with them. I'm sure he has seen how she treats people she deems beneath her. I'm sure he sees how she is with the children too.

I think this whole trip is a huge set up by TLC. They know the rumors that she is bedding the bodyguard,so why not plan a trip overseas to NZ so they can stir up some interest in her. They know her star is fading and they are trying to keep the light stoked long enough to get some more money out of her and the kids. One way to do that is to send her and the kids to where Rat Claw is from and hope people talk about it.

Lolly said...

"LisaNH said... I think this whole trip is a huge set up by TLC"

You know, Lisa, I am not so sure they even care to go these great lengths. I think they got a good deal on plane tickets, and because Oprah went there, they joined the parade. LOL I think Kate and TLC realize that Jon will NOT permit filming any longer after 2012, so they are trying to get in all they can until then. TLC no longer has him by the man parts, so they can't force another contract on him.

Money, money, money! Work the kids~ who needs school? When you have money!

Nothing Good said...

At this point with what that man has seen and heard with her over those kids through the years one would have to question his motive if he chose to marry such a wretched person unless deep down inside he has a tender spot for the kids. There are women who long for the knight in shining armour riding in on a white horse to save the day or to save them from themselves. While being dominant with those who can't stand up to them they might secretly yearn to in fact find that person with whom they can be submissive. She does show a hint of submissiveness or at least deference around him or used to, but more and more you hear reports of her yelling at him and dressing him down. I think the operative word with her has become "bizarre" and that is not a good thing.

Speculating said...

For what it's worth, here's my opinion of the Kate/Steve relationship:
*Kate looks to be about 10 years younger than Gina. Her looks are very similar to a "younger version" of Gina.
*Steve is attracted to Kate, because she fits the type he responds to, and she is obviously in love with him.
* They are having an affair. He's a guy, and no matter how bitchy and arrogant Kate is, he is still attracted to her physically.
* He will never, ever marry her. He is just taking advantage of the current situation.

What do others think? Do you agree with this?

PJ's momma said...

Chaz, Kate has worn long earrings for a long time. On the couch interviews, she'd sit there and twirl and twirl an earring while she or Jon talked (especially while Jon talked). I doubt she even knows she did it and I wondered if it was sort of some internal conflict in her (treating her husband so badly) sort of coming out. The more she or he talked, especially if it was tense, the more she twirled. I thought her earlobe would fall off a few times.

K8SUCKS said...

Speculating :

I def agree that K8 is in love with Steve . I do not, however, think he is in love with her. I think his job, no matter how absurd, is to monitor her, not protect her.

All snark aside, I think K8 looks absolutely terrible,and almost manly - even in the Bondi Beach pic with "the girls" on display. The picture at the top of the home page with the fork shows a much softer, prettier K8.

I said even when I listened to one of her shows last month when she still supported Kate (if I recall her justification was, they get trips!) she sounded very level headed and reasonable. She didn't sound hateful or creepy at all and I would never begrudge someone their opinion if they can be adult about it, as she was. It really doesn't surprise me that much she has seen the light given how reasonable she was. It was only a matter of time. It will be interesting to see exactly what it was that changed her mind.

Short Interview with Philly ChitChat Hugh E Dillon. The person who took pictures of the family filming on the museum steps. He kept saying Kart was miserable wherever she went and that as she walked up the museum stairs, one of the kids fell, and she kept walking and talking on her cell phone. Also at the Waterworks restaurants, the nanny tended to the kids, and Kate was off to the side looking miserable.

http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/shows/nonstop/EXCLUSIVE__Kate_Gosselin_and_the_Kids_in_Philly_Philadelphia-112814709.html

I guess the only time she's not miserable is flaunting her bikini-clad dishpan brown body.

The Blame Game said...

I couldn't pull up the video from Ninda. Hugh Dillon's account was very interesting. He talked about now distant she was and that she did not acknowledge one of the children falling, talking on the cell phone running up the steps. What a tool. Thankfully they had Jamie there.

RE: Hats on Bondi Beach

Apparently very few got the memo about wearing hats. I see one on one adult and some kind of white something-or-another on the head of a young girl in the middle of the picture. Other than that, nothing.

no way said...

I think Kate is in love with Steve. I think she wants people to believe that they are having an affair. But I cannot imagine that ANYONE would want to be with her. He has seen how nasty, calculating, abusive, vain and stupid she is. He has covered for her as she has mistreated her kids, lied, had plastic surgery, and arranged to be photographed by the fake paparazzo. He has seen her ugly mug without makeup and the stretch marks, cellulite, lipo scars, surgery scars, etc. He has witnessed her obsession with her looks and hair (what a joke) and her disregard of her own kids. How can you be attracted to someone so shallow, so callous, so insecure? The constant plastic surgery tweaks and wasteful spa treatments result in someone who looks desperate and 45. Her screechy, immature, attention seeking behavior and the tacky hooker clothes and gum popping? The horrible breath? The fake hair? The ignorance? The lack of any maternal bond with the kids? She is like a high schooler with regards to her maturity and education level. If he is attracted to her, or egads, in love with her, then I would seriously wonder what is wrong with HIM. And someone mentioned that Kate kinda resembles Gina. Well, she didn't always. Maybe her makeover was an attempt to attract Steve, in addition to satisfying her NPD. Maybe she's trying to look like a slutty version if Gina. I think Steve thinks of her as a charge to take care of. She's a pathetic child whose image needs to be propped up to keep the show, and his paycheck, alive. He probably encourages and is flattered by her crush; it also gives him job security. But I can't imagine he'd leave his wife for someone so insubstancial, vile, and pitiful. Kate is unlovable, as in impossible to love, IMO. If steve's involved, he has my condolences and pity.

Who reported this? Is it a credible source? Does this mean that Steve no longer goes home to his family in Maryland?

No, I don't think that is Ashley in the picture of the playmate Mother of the year. Ashley tends to emulate Kate in her style of dress, too little & too tight unfortunately. MTV style. Kate is not the role model I would encourage my daughter to follow.
It appears Steve sons did not leave their school to come on this trip to his homeland.
Kate is not going away and will be in the public eye for a long time I fear, and will do whatever it takes to make that happen. She continues to put herself first, making her image a priority which sends the wrong message to the kids. Emotional responsibilities are just as important as physical.

But TLC, I do not consider Kate Gosselin any sort of positive role model and in the big picture of things in life she is a small concern to me. It is her kids that I fear for and hope by commenting on blogs and talking about her choices to others, I can help stop this abuse. I do consider making the kids film child abuse.

Australians remind me of Canadians in their positive attitude, sense of humor, hospitality, and kindness.

I don't normally generalize a huge group of people but it's just so facinating to me, and no coincidence that every....single....person I meet from those two countries is so salt of the earth.

Australians jealous haters? Or just know sludge when they see it.

I met Australians everywhere I traveled abroad in school in Europe and the Mideast, I guess they are huge travelers. And they are, hands down, the nicest people I've ever met--next to Canadians.

Is that Ashley on the beach with her back to the camera (with blue backpack)? She's really having a blast in that 20 inches of snow in Virginia, isn't she? :-)


I don't believe so. That looks more like the new tutor or nanny with her back to the camera. Ashley's hair isn't quite as red as the girl with the blue backpack. But, Ashley is for sure in Australia - she was definitely in the photo at the airport in Sydney!
