Kate asks Court to hold Jon in contempt

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

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




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

You know despite all the hundred lies Kate told in that interview I still cannot believe that Kate tried to claim that Jon has only been around the past three months! I think Nancy here helped put together all the blog posts I did about Jon's numerous, numerous, consistent visits week after week. Did she forget Jon stayed with the kids TEN DAYS while she was doing her DWTS I wanna be a real celebrity crap? I don't think I got around to posting it but maybe I will.

Liar, liar, parental alienator's pants on fire.

Administrator said...

It cannot be said enough, Kate is a CLASSIC parental alienator. The second things start going "right" for the other parent, like Jon getting more visitation, they panic and start alienating with a vengeance, asking for hearings, dragging them into court, saying bad things about them, God knows what crap she is spewing about him while she has the kids all to herself on this trip for three weeks. A three week trip away from the other parent is a parental alienator's DREAM.

That's probably part of her whole plan, she wanted to get the kids decidedly away from Jon so she can brainwash the kids against him so more like she always does while she has her people file for a contempt hearing.

She is so CLASSIC I can't believe it.

Sunfire said...

She must be sick of hearing what a wonderful Christmas the children had at Jon's apartment, right before they left on their 2 1/2 week working vacation. Her jealousy is really showing now.

gotyournumberKate said...

It's all about the money for Kate. Jon's threatening her livelihood and she's having none of it. He's getting closer to doing it than she ever thought he would. The truth is coming out and she hates it. She makes me sick.

Administrator said...

This truly shows her mental illness. She is so delusional she doesn't see that what she did on Regis and Kelly was just as bad if not worse. She TRASHED him. Watch the clip. It was disgusting what she did. That's the father of her babies.

Someone said she loves to hate Jon more than she loves her kids--how true.

Administrator said...

Kate says she barely talks to Jon. How can she possibly know he leaked a story? I mean seriously I'm wondering how she can know the source of ANY story. I am really curious what her evidence is.

He can't possibly be leaking Australia stories, so SOMEONE other than Jon is leaking things--we know some of them, the waiter at M@M, random people in the airport, Carla. Is she mad at those people?

A good publication wouldn't ever reveal their source. I'm really curious whether she has any solid evidence. She would have to subpoena these publications and make them reveal their source, and most journalists would go to jail before doing that.

I have no idea what Jon is doing, but these kids interact with so many people every day from nannies to helpers to school teachers to friends to students why could it not be any number of these other people? For pity sake it could even be a court employee bitter their salary stinks after budget cuts. This stuff HAPPENS. Why is it always Jon? Oh right because she hates Jon. She may be setting herself up to be made a total fool when she can't prove this.

She's OUT OF HER MIND!

___________________________

Pink, you're right. She is nuts. We can comment all we want about the custody issue, her narcissim, child exploitation, but when the day is over, the bottom line is that she is one mentally-disturbed woman, and if she continues without psychological intervention, those kids are going to be carbon copies of their mother.
She's going to crack -- it's not a matter of IF it's going to happen, but when, and how soon. She's digging her own grave.

BeDoneNow said...

you all KNOW I am not a Kate supporter in any way, but she is going to win this one.

She is accusing Jon of talking about the COURT PROCEEDINGS and RULINGS, which he has sort of done. That is in apparent violation of a court order.

She is not accusing him of talking about HER. She is accusing him of talking about the Court.

I am not sure I recall Kate saying anything at all about the court orders and proceedings.

And her judge is enamoured with her to begin with and is deliberatly not looking at or thinking of the children, only the letter of court procedures.

JON, have heart. The children are very close to an age where they will start seeing the truth, although times are going to get harder as one by one, they start running away from home, to come to you. My own sister is 51 years old and still blames our mother from keeping our father away from us when we were kids.

Administrator said...

If Kate came from a different socio-economic background, other side of town, she would be in a straightjacket right now. It's the truth. She is BARKING MAD. She is an obsessed alienator and many other obsessed alienators not nearly as bad as her have lost their kids to the other parent.

BeDoneNow, talking about the custody arrangment IS talking about the court case. It's the same thing. No judge would buy that Kate wasn't talking about the court case because she didn't actually say "i'm talking about the court case now." Kate discussed the custody arrangement, her children's personal feelings about that, right down to pick up and drop offs, and she talked badly about Jon. THAT is the CASE and any judge (well a halfway decent judge) will say you are talking up and down about the case and you TOO are in contempt.

I actually don't think she will win at all. She wouldn't win anywhere near my neck of the woods anyway. She would be laughed out of here.

Administrator said...

I would be beyond SHOCKED if there were not a clear order on this case that neither parent is supposed to talk negatively about the other parent.

Kate is in clear violation of both that order and the no discussion of the case order. It is just so laughable she is filing this. Seriously, what attorney approved this? Aren't they worried about getting kicked out of court for this?

Nor Cal Girl said...

My theory is that Kate is leaking the stories to the tabloids to make money.

gotyournumberKate said...

TMZ said...."and she wants the judge to modify the custody agreement to protect the kids"

BS! Kate wants the judge to modify the custody agreement because she wants to be able to film her little moneymakers anytime she wants to without a fight. Coincidence this happened right after he took her to court to stop her from going to Australia? I think not.

G8 meet the DSM-IV said...

To the poster who questioned my suggestion that the Gosselin kids would benefit from some good therapy on another thread on this blog: welcome to Exhibit A.

Kids going through a "garden variety" divorce suffer immeasurably. Imagine adding to a child’s suffering: (1) an acrimonious divorce, (2) parents who seem only to be able to communicate via a JUDGE’S intervention, (3) a private life made public to the international media WITHOUT their consent, (4) being forced to work when they should be playing (and by that I mean REAL playing; not “playing” while Kate – cough, cough – “works,” (4) a mom who finds every opportunity to bad-mouth their dad in the media (and YES, the pregnant-pauses and lying-by-omission are just as egregious as bashing him straight-out).

I don’t know their custody agreement, or whatever orders Jon may be violating, but I’ll say with damn certainty that SOMEONE needs to grow a pair, and shout from the rooftops about what is being done to these kids. My God, who takes their kids on a cross-global adventure right after two have been expelled from kindergarten???? Not to mention, said trip means that all eight kids will be missing a couple weeks of school. What’s the message?? Here it is: (1) Education is less valuable than milking freebies and keeping mommy in exotic trips and too-small bikinis. (2) Disobedience and violence will be rewarded with exotic vacations.

So I go back to my original point: These kids need some outside, professional intervention. What adult is actually advocating for them right now?? Jon, maybe, but let’s face it, his balls are in a vice and he has very little power to do anything. So who’s left??? These kids need an advocate whose sole purpose is to listen to them, workshop any issues with them, and give them a sense of security. Sadly, as long as Kate is in control, I don’t see any of this happening any time soon.

Karen said...

I, for one, believe that the whole divorce issue was over the fact that Jon wanted to stop the insanity of filming the family. She could not have that. That "gravy train" was not going anywhere if she could stop it. We all know she has had her way from the get go. Ego must be fed at all cost. Kate has gotten away with portraying Jon as the neglectful parent when most of us know that he did a lot of the physical/psychological care of the kids during the marriage. It's on years of permanent film. The facts speak for themselves. She will alienate all her sheep and her children before it's over. This will not end well. It must just torch Kate that Jon is getting any good press. She wants to squash him like a bug and just needs to stop and look at herself in the mirror for a change. She is one ugly bleached blond with money. Didn't she hit her personal lottery having those sextuplets? Pretty is as pretty does. No one enjoys watching someone put down another person forever.

gotyournumberKate said...

And another thing (can you tell I'm angry?) Kate is able to afford great lawyers off the backs of "Jon's" children and he isn't. How is this right??? I'm sure TLC is behind this as well especially now that Jon almost ruined their trip to AU. The poor guy doesn't have a fighting chance.

boo said...

She's pretty slick, Admin. Did she really talk negatively about Jon on Regis? She just said that she keeps herself by the phone because if the kids want to come home, she will be available to pick them up. And she wasn't talking about the case or the proceedings, just about what she does when the kids are with Jon. (please note sarcasm and insert eye roll here). And they like being home with her,and blah, blah, blah. I can hear it now. I firmly believe that if Jon is indeed in violation of the court's order it was deliberate. I remember the wording of his Tweet about the order regarding giving Kate the right to make filming decisions. It was obviously written by someone other than Jon and probably by a lawyer. My guess is that he was willing to risk a contempt fine, or more likely a slap an the wrist, in order to get his side of the story out. And this latest round is sheer retaliation and/or an attempt by Kate to deflect her latest round of bad publicity. It really is shameful. Hasn't enough dirty laundry been publicly aired between these two? Does Kate ever the of the effect of all of this on her kids?

What a Tool! said...

I have always felt it was one the many people who Khate has treated badly during the brief employment with her that is doing the leaking, or her camp within itself, for lack of any other news to keep her relevant. How would it benefit Jon in any way, as apparently Khate is the only one that is allowed to make money off of the kids - big money- huge money. I don't think Jon is the one that is leaking the pics of the kids and the bikini shots from Australia or Alaska or New York, NC, Florida - that could only be from her camp. And they superimpose their name on a shot like the ones we have seen lately, that means they paid for the rights to the picture. I wish Jon had stuck with Paul Peterson and Glorida Allred. He needs a high prfile attorney, since Khate or somebody is throwing good money after bad to these get these high dollar attorneys that have the judges in their pocket.

bearswife said...

There really aren't any words to describe how utterly batshit crazy she is, and how unbelievably cruel. May she live to be a very old woman, all alone with no one and nothing except a Franzia box to keep her company.

audibleclick said...

I don't even know if this is possible but I wish the judge would dismiss Kate's lawyer's motion "with prejudice".

Laurie said...

What a fugging idiot she is. Hopefully Jon has a good lawyer now and has all his ducks in order re every time she's trashed him or talked about custody. I think that she's basing her case on the fact that Jon tweeted that he didn't agree with the judge's decision. I totally agree that Kate has talked about the "case" everytime she went on any show and discussed anything. Jon - CALL PAUL PETERSON NOW!

Code Speak said...

Yes Khate talks in code (Ellen nailed her) and Jon is forthright. Which in a perfect world would work to Jon's advantage but not in today's world where everyone and everything is for sell for just 15 minutes of fame. Khate's 15 minutes are about up and I think she knows that. Why continue to beat up on the father of your kids. She can't slap him around him anymore so she slaps law suits on him right and left. In my opinion Jon should get a check from TLC everytime she does because they are working his kids into shell shock.

BeDoneNow said...

you are right, admin. I guess I didnt think of it that way. When Kate says she waits by the phone to see which kid wants to be picked up from Jon's coz they dont want to be there, that IS indeed talking about the visitation and custody.

When she goes on national TV and says he doesnt pay child support, etc, that IS talking about the court orders and such.

Perhaps she was so successful at bullying Jon at the initial divorce proceedings, she is deliberatly doing it again, assuming he will agree to let her move the kids out of state because she will try to sap all his energy.

After all, mental and emotional abuse have worked for over 11 years on Jon, hasnt it? Maybe she thinks it will work this time too - He must have something she wants very badly, ie permission to move the kids to a larger media market. Or the respect and affection of his children - she must want that taken from him very badly, too.

Kate says she barely talks to Jon.

***********************************
OMG, Admin, this sentence gave me pause. Did Kate really say this??? What parent who tries to “make a divorce work” in the interest of the KIDS “barely talks” to the kids’ dad??? If this is true, it just illustrates even further how sick and self-centered Kate is. Truly loving parents realize how traumatic a divorce is for their children, and make a concerted effort to be civil and communicative for the sake of the kids. Kate seems to be oblivious to the fact that while SHE hates Jon, the kids LOVE him. She just can’t put them first – ever – can she???

I suppose this is consistent with the rumor that she’s still never met Ellen. How odd is that?? As a mother of three myself, if I had an ex who was seriously dating a woman, I’d be damn sure to meet and get to know the woman who was spending a significant amount of time with my kids. Isn’t that just “Mother Bear-101”????
Kate truly has no maternal instincts. I sincerely hope that through some twist of fate (or Kate??), Jon ends up with sole custody.

Grammy of nine said...

What is wrong/right with TMZ reporting this junk? I believe the "rags" will be putting Kate and Jon out there over and over again to build up interest in the travelogs of Philly and Australia. What a joke this is. Jon is getting more and more public support and you can imagine how angry that makes Kate. She never dreamed she would lose so much public appeal. She is so vain and delusional about her own importance it's sickening. She is a nobody without her "kiddies." So sad.

K8SUCKS said...

Admin, it was I who quoted the "K8 needs to love her children more than she hates Jon" line, and I think the original quote came from Judge Judy ! Boy would she rip K8 a new one.

This new development is just insane - Kate is a sick b*tch and TLC is exploiting her just as much as the kids.

Let's see what the "judge" has to say. I wouldn't be surprised if he/she rules in favor of K8. Corruption at its finest.

Nor Cal Girl said...

I hope God gives Jon the balls to fight Kate. He has so much evidence at his fingertips (by way of the internet). Kate is foolish to have even filed this contempt of court charge.

Jon needs to stop being the nice guy and FIGHT, FIGHT, FIGHT! Kate is going for blood and I hope Jon has the courage to stand up to her.

Administrator said...

Why can't Kate be an adult for once and tell Jon she's sorry for talking about the case on Regis and Kelly, for talking about the case on Kate Plus 8, and so on and so on. Then Jon can apologize for tweeting about the case. Then Kate can say we both messed up but it was a long time ago (it's been months since either of them have talked about the case itself) and let's agree never to do that again and move on in the best interests of our children. Kate needs to realize they both screwed up and MOVE ON.

Yeah when pigs fly.

Boo I agree with you and others, this is retaliation. Jon's tweet was in I think, October? It was MONTHS ago. Why now? Why pissed about the tweet now? She is retaliating for something. My guess is Jon doesn't want the kids to move and is stopping it, or she wants to get back at Jon for getting more custodial time. And I think she is just pissed in general that she cannot fully cut him out of their lives which is her usual order of business for anyone who makes her mad--only this time it's their father and he has real RIGHTS to her kids unlike anyone else she's successful cut off. Like someone else said, she will just keep suing the crap out of him until she gets what she wants.

Makes you have a much deeper understanding to be in the shoes of someone cut off like Aunt Jodi, huh? This woman when she wants to cut you off, she does it BALLS TO THE WALL. There is no fighting it.

Lolly said...

I still say TLC is behind that appearance. She was asked pointed questions about Jon.THis was in retaliation of Jon's tweet and his statement about getting the kids off tv. Usually when people appear, their "people" have a say on what is discussed or not. The show was HARLY mentioned, one little blurb at the end. This has TLC written all over it. They are so involved in exploiting these kids, and interfereing in this divorce, it is sickening. And of course Kate, being so invested with TLC jumps on any chance to throw Jon under the bus.

If this report is true, there is NO judge in right mind going to stop a parent from seeing his/her children unless abuse or other serious things involved. This is not the case. And as far as Jon selling anything PROVE IT. Who will protect the kids from HER living off them?

Maggie said...

Kate Gosselin's attorney is Cheryl L. Young. Guess what she is in charge of? She chairs the state's bar association's family law section. I read the below article and that name screamed at me. Sure enough I googled her name and Kate's name and she is/was Kate's attorney.

http://www.philly.com/philly/wires/ap/news/state/pennsylvania/20110109_ap_reworkedchildcustodylawabouttotakeeffect.html


This article is new and summarizes what the PA new custody laws would highlight.

Admin: What is your opinion about Ms. Young's background and position and how it filters into her being Kate's personal custody lawyer?

Just because it's TLC and they play cutsie music in the background and edit it all nice

I hold her in contempt for the shite she is saddling her kid;s with - now and in the future.

Someone with authority: please put this crazy byotch in her place!

Pam said...

This is Kate's retaliation for the tabloids making her look bad the past week or two, about Jon trying to stop her from taking the kids to Australia.

She can't take that the press was bad and made her look awful for taking the kids out of school for so long.

So, she's trying to put the bad press back on Jon so she'll look like the good parent again. She can't handle that he was coming off as the good parent for trying to stop her.

She is a sick, twisted, disturbed individual. No doubt about it. And her lawyers are taking full advantage of her mental illness. Her hatred is lining their pockets.

I often wonder what those churches think of her now. The ones who paid her to speak about her "faith" and "love for God" ( which, we now know, was really money ). I wonder if they realize what a snow job she pulled on them and if they are more careful with whom they invite to speak to their church members. Because this woman is CLEARLY of the devil. I think Kate Gosselin is Lucifer himself.

Administrator said...

Maybe Kate should think of it this way. Let's say Jon sold a story to TMZ about Collin. The story was that Collin is angry and has post-divorce issues more than the other kids. The story included personal candid photos of Collin at a corn maze and Collin picking out a Halloween custome. Would people be outraged? You bet they would. What a personal, private story the public has no business knowing.

Guess what Kate? YOU SOLD THAT STORY. You sold that story to TLC on the episode Gosselins, Goblins and Gouls that aired over Thanksgiving weekend. If she can't see how it's exactly the same thing, she truly is a mental headcase.

Tucker's Mom said...

What could happen to Jon if Kate wins? Jail time? That's big time hard-ball.
It must scare the kids. How sad.

Administrator said...

Maggie, I think Cheryl is an excellent attorney who is riding a client with momentum. When you see momentum you go for it, attorneys PRAY for cases that go so well like this for their clients.

I cannot say enough about this idea of momentum in a family case. Kate has most of it and it is like trying to stop an ocean wave. Jon is very brave.

Administrator said...

Yes you can send someone to jail for contempt. Is that what Kate wants? She wants the kids to know their daddy is in jail? I don't think EITHER parent should file contempt against the other, it's so unnecessary and contentious. This is the PARENT of your kids, you loved them, you made babies with them. WHAT IS THIS?

Most judges for an infraction as small as this are more likely to just slap him with a small fine and admonish him don't do it again. So how does that make sense Kate? Now Jon has to pay a fine too in addition to all the child support you want him to pay. What an idiot, now he'll probably just be short on his support this month. People this obsessed just end up hurting themselves sometimes.

Did she even TRY to talk to him about this privately, see if they could come to an understanding? He just might have apologized had she gone to him.

And yes they don't talk, she has to send the nanny to pick them up at drop offs and there is video of her picking them up once where no one says a WORD, very icey.

audibleclick said...

Kate's attorney must be very confident of her momentum in this case or else we are all missing a piece of this puzzle. The whole thing seems frivolous to me. If it is, I would think the judge would be very annoyed at the waste of the court's time. Nothing seems to have gone well for Jon so I'm probably wrong.

_____________________
I have never questioned the kids' need for professional help. I've been saying for a very long time that they need therapy and intervention. I understood (or, as you pointed out, misunderstood) from your post that, since you cited your expert credentials in the study and research of eating disorders, that you believe that such a disorder will manifest itself because of what they are, or are not, being fed. I simply pointed out that we don't know what these kids are eating 24/7 and one cannot say with certainty that any such disorder is already in its evolution stage.

There is absolutely no question that these kids need professional help, and needed it yesterday. I'm wondering what happened to that therapist that Kate claimed was coming to their house. I hope they do get these kids intervention before we get to Exhibit B. By then it may be too late.

What? Do you mean that the church of which Rev. Craig Yoshihara of Roswell, Georgia was the pastor, hasn't invited Kate back for a "share the love" speaking engagement? He vigorously defended her every action.

Remember that fiasco?

LisaNH said...

Well, IMHO, I think the judge will side with Kate.....AGAIN. He found it okay to drag the kids out of school for filming then he won't do the right and fair thing and dismiss this crazy contempt issue.

Kate is just a horrible person. I'm tired of constantly seeing and hearing about her being rewarded for her bad behavior. Karma can be a bitch, but I don't think Karma has ever met a bitch like Kate. Maybe that's why Karma has never given Kate her just rewards.

Crime and Punishment said...

(2) Disobedience and violence will be rewarded with exotic vacations.

***********

The school incident(s) happened in early October. How long should Alexis and Collin be punished for that? I don't believe the kids see this trip as a reward for anything. No doubt what they see is a form of punishment, or at least they WILL by the time when they've taken that brutal plane ride back to the States and see how much school work they must make up.

Who's TMZ's source? said...

I'd like to know who tipped off TMZ that the lawsuit was filed "last Thursday". I'm sure they don't monitor all the filings in all the family courts in all 50 states for celeb names. Is Kate going to say he leaked this one, too?

Administrator said...

Gotyournumber, A downright CLASSIC move by an obsessed alienator is that they convince themselves, and try to convince others, that a parent who is perfectly appropriate is DANGEROUS. Kate saying she needs to do this to protect the kids is absolutely textbook. In her twisted morphed head Jon is this huge risk to her children.

Jon is no danger, if he were he wouldn't have unmonitored contact this whole time--clearly this judge is a hardnose and wouldn't let something like that happen absent no risk.

Funny how this comes the next day after TLC shows the last Palin episode, with more comments from that particular brood punched in, showing Kate's true self, once again. Miss Katie Irene doesn't like this, I think. She's striking out at anything.

Plus, the Australia trip has actually been a failure. They don't know her, they don't care. Kate and Steve have had to be their own papparazzi.

It's just been a bad month for poor ol' Katie.

&&&&&&&&&&&&
Good question. Why would Jon leak a story that makes him look so bad? Proof that someone other than Jon is leaking stories, or sluethes are finding them out. It is amazing what sleuthes can find when they know where to look. Stories that sheeple think are leaked were often not leaked at all but rather sleuthed out. Remember there are programs like Lexus Nexis news organizations can pay for and do that make it much easier to sleuth.

Do you know how the Alaska story was sleuthed out? CARLA opened her big fat mouth and said that Ashley just got on an 8 hour flight. That tipped people off she must be somewhere, people started scanning twitter and SURE ENOUGH some local had posted some cell phone pics. BAM, story broke. Jon had absolutely nothing to do with that. Where is the contempt suit against Carla?

In Kate's head Jon leaks everything. For someone who works a day job now he sure must be busy jetting off to Australia and Alaska and such to be sure to leak all those stories to the press.

Look, I have no idea what Jon has or hasn't done, but without evidence it's ridiculous to accuse him of such. For the school suspension alone do you know how many people are involved with a suspension? From teachers to administrators to every single parent who would notice oh golly gee Alexis and Collin aren't in school anymore. It could be any of those two hundred or more people who leaked it, does Kate realize this? But no it's Jon, all Jon. Do I think Jon could have leaked? Maybe. But without evidence how can anyone say with any certainty he did when it could have EASILY been so many other people?

New Hampshire Mom said...

I think Kate has no intention whatsoever returning her kids to the private school.

She has other intentions for them.

Just my opinion.

Let's also review how the Australia story was leaked.

Carla, once again, opened her big fat mouth and said that Ashley was going to be gone 20 days. Everyone thought for someone to be gone that long over xmas maybe she is with Kate. Just hours later, some kid took to Facebook and said she was on Kate's flight to Sydney. Bingo, yet another story broke that had nothing to do with Jon.

Kate's motivation said...

Sure, the judge can fine or send a defendant to jail for contempt, but Kate "wants the judge to modify the custody agreement to protect the kids from their alleged money-grubbing dad." She most likely wants them to spend LESS time with him or... maybe she doesn't want Ellen to be around the kids when he has visitation.

worgikan said...

Kate has taken the children on a 20 day trip (reported length) to a far away place. She NEEDS to stay in the media. Those photos of her in Australia are reported to be taken by her camp to keep people talking about her. God forbid we forget about her or move on.
She is in New Zealand now, and if she wants private time with Steve's family, she'll need to control the media another way - voila custody issues! I'm sure Steve isn't taking photos of his family to sell to media - I believe if we don't see these "pap" photos in NZ, it confirms that she is controlling the photo ops.
Just my gut feeling on this.

Midnight Madness: As long as the Gosselin kids are in a living situation where their traumatization is ongoing, no amount of therapy will be helpful to them.

Until they are able to have a stable family life where they are not exploited, hit, screamed at, or bullied by their "caregiver" mother,they will not be able to benefit from therapy.

Any reputable therapist, if he/she knew the extent of the traumatic events that these kids experience, would insist that changes be made in their living situation before attempting to treat them.

What the kids need is somebody with the courage to intervene on their behalf, who has the power and professional credibility to be listened to by the court; someone without an axe to grind, who is intervening because they have the professional capability to recognize when children are being traumatized by their parent's behaviour, and believe that they should do so.

Where are the Professional Associations of Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Social Workers or Family Therapists? Nowhere in sight. I guess they don't watch TV or read blogs.

I understood (or, as you pointed out, misunderstood) from your post that, since you cited your expert credentials in the study and research of eating disorders, that you believe that such a disorder will manifest itself because of what they are, or are not, being fed. I simply pointed out that we don't know what these kids are eating 24/7 and one cannot say with certainty that any such disorder is already in its evolution stage.

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

Midnight ... I think at this point we're just going to have to agree to disagree -- or acknowledge that you just need to be contrary to my every post -- or at the very least insist on misreading them??? For the umpteenth time, my post did NOT site Kate's feeding habits as the possible source of a potential eating disorder (re-read it, you'll see); rather, I stated that it is her TOXIC parenting and lack of mothering relationship with the kids that could lead to MULTIPLE disorders and problems, eating disorders being just one of them. If you re-read my original post, I say specifically that it's NOT their daily feeding that is necessarily the problem.

And, as an FYI, you can't possibly "pre-screen" for an eating disorder as you suggested. Eating disorders happen and then you back-track to see if you can acertain the cause. My point was that, based on their family situation, the Gosselin kids are PRIMED for any number of problems. Doesn't mean they'll develop any of them. Just means they've got all the pre-conditions to develop some serious disorders.

I'm sorry that you need to be so sarcastic about my professional credentials. Not sure why you're being so hostile, or why you need to challenge what I'm suggesting. I've suggested that Kate's toxic parenting could likely lead to some serious disorders for the kids, and that the kids could benefit from some good therapy to counteract this negativity. I'll throw the ball in your court now: since you seem so contrary to my opinions, what are your thoughts??? What's YOUR professional opinion?

Sad in Tucson said...

Fellow bloggers,

Here is some more information about young Christina-Taylor Green, who was senselessly murdered in Tucson, along with 5 others on Saturday. Christina attended the event with her neighbor. Her parents were not there. My friend's boyfriend is a firefighter, and he texted her around 11 a.m. to say that Christina passed away at the University Medical Center hospital on Saturday.

School resumed today (Monday) and the teachers at her school are attempting to keep things as normal as possible for the children. There has been some intense media scrutiny of the school, including interviews of students there.

President Obama will come to Tucson on Wednesday to attend a public memorial for all the victims at the University of Arizona. Services for Christina will be Thursday afternoon.

Gabrielle Giffords is still critical and on a ventilator, but she is responding with thumbs up, hand squeezing, etc. The doctors are very encouraged that the brain swelling has not worsened.

All of the other shooting victims, including the most critical, are still alive.

Some information that may not be national: in addition to the two men who tackled and subdued the suspect, a 61-year-old woman on the scene (who fell down once the shooting started) was close to the shooter and the magazine on the ground. She tossed it away from the shooter so he was unable to reload his weapon. This was in our local paper today (AZ Daily Star).

go to hell, kate said...

If kate's attorney is respected and decent, then why would she waste her time on this bullshit? Jon said he was upset that the judge decided that filming would continue. So what? Does she want jon to pay a fine? Go to jail? What a waste if time and effort, right? I think Kate wants to f--- with jon, run up his lawyer bills and use this non-issue as an attempt to stop him from trying to stop filming. She will stop at nothing. It is truly scary. Those kids need to be protected from HER

Totallydisgusted said...

from TMZ:

"she wants the judge to modify the custody agreement to protect the kids from their alleged money-grubbing dad."

The only person the kids need to be protected from is their money grubbing mother!

Things haven't been going to good for her lately - kids get expelled, the Palin episode, taking the kids on a long working vacation where they will miss school when they are having school issues, it coming out that she and boobyguard are (and probably have been) taking pictures and selling them. She's probably really ticked that the people in Australia and New Zealand don't know who she is and could care less about her.

The public is finally seeing her for what she is and this motion against Jon just shows what a low life she really is. If she thinks she is going to garner any sympathy or support ITS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!

She doesn't care one bit about those kids.

Administrator said...

This also proves how obsessed Kate is with Jon. He's moved on, he's in a long-term relationship, he is quietly working a real job and quietly vistiing his kids.

She's the one who cannot stop talking about him, the divorce, the kids issues. She is OBSESSSED. She cannot get over him. She needs to get a life of her own, get a long-term relationship of her own with someone she is not paying to be around (isn't that prostutition?), and get a real job. Then maybe she won't have so much time to dwell on Jon and a relationship that was dead and buried more than two years ago.

Kate? MOVE ON!

Unbelieveable said...

She is so pathetic.

She'll do anything, including trying to have Jon arrested, so she can go back on The Today Show and "set the record straight" with Meredith again.

First stop. Getting her hair done in NYC and getting her tan re-oranged. Then off to blab with Meredith about how horrible Jon is.

Administrator said...

The fact that Jon's tweet in question was from October or thereabouts just proves how psycho she is. If it was so terrible what he tweeted where was her contempt action back then???? Why did she let this go that long?

Oh right she had to wait for the news to be slow and for public opinion to be particularily negative toward her before waiting for just the right moment to spring this on him. It's such garbage.

By the way in Kate's own words SHE WAS TOLD she needed to file for divorce. By who, a network? She does realize a network is not a person but just a fiction right? Was she TOLD to file this lawsuit by them too?

January 10, 2011 7:31 PM




Most likely it was that big mouthed tool Mark Momjian, her lawyer, who LOVES seeing his name in the media. Only this time he couldn't have his name printed with the story because HE would be in contempt for discussing it. He is a true dirtbag of a lawyer.

Midnight Madness said...

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

Absolutely, Admin! If she's dead in the media, and public opinion is negative, how is something like a contempt lawsuit going to turn her into June Cleaver and reverse the tide of public opinion? Wouldn't it just help her dig that hole a bit deeper?

"This also proves how obsessed Kate is with Jon. He's moved on, he's in a long-term relationship, he is quietly working a real job and quietly vistiing his kids."

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

This reminds me so much of the Betty Broderick story. Will we read that she slashed Jon's clothing, and made multiple middle-of-the night phone calls to Ellen? I'm just worried that none of this is going to have a good ending. Obsession is the great destroyer, and the kids are caught in the middle.

ID: If she's not going to change, though (she doesn't see herself as being the problem) and provide a suitable living situation for them, wouldn't it be at least beneficial for a therapist or child psychologist to sit down with those children and at least work out a way to deal with the mother who has been thrown their way? The status quo just isn't going to work.

Bubbles said...

Regarding Kate saying SHE WAS TOLD to file for the divorce, the impression I got from her saying that was that she had caring friends and family urging her to file for the divorce to protect herself and the kids. Unfortunately, it was already quite apparent by then that Kate had no friends or family around, so if she was indeed told she needed to file, it was probably by TLC.

My personal opinion is that she was not told to do it by anyone - she chose to do it but didn't want to be seen as the bad guy so she says she was told to do it.

Mom In Lancaster County said...

"From teachers to administrators to every single parent who would notice oh golly gee Alexis and Collin aren't in school anymore. It could be any of those two hundred or more people who leaked it, does Kate realize this? But no it's Jon, all Jon. Do I think Jon could have leaked?"


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

Dead right. Our community knew about this long before the tabs broke the story. Anyone here could have leaked it. You just can't keep something like that quiet. Even our local newspaper, which has always been hands-off Gosselins, ran a front page story about it. Of course, the editor subsequently apologized to the school and to the Gosselins for naming the school and invading the kids' privacy, but by then the proverbial horse was out of the barn.

Starz22 said...

Where are the kids Guardian ad Litem?Why havent the kids been appointeded one yet? A Guardian ad Litem is there ONLY to protect the kids best intrest.I dont understand why they dont have one.

When the divorce came about people,and the media needed a bad guy.Well Jon got that tag.After suffering years of abuse from kate,Jon went a little wild.He took his new found freedom and ran with it.Many do after excaping an abusive relationship.Even tho Jon was going out and about,he was still there every time he was ALLOWED to be with the kids.

Kate became the hero.The poor single mom of 8 kids doing everything to support them.OMG kate HAS to do this...she is the only one supporting the kids...bla bla bla bla

Fast foward to now.Its been made clear that kate has made MILLIONS by making the kids WORK.kate has more then enough money to raise the kids in a very nice lifestyle.kate dosent HAVE to work and niether do the kids.They have earned enough money to be raised without wanting for anything.

Why cant the courts see this? How hard is it to see that kate wants a life on the red carpet...kate wants to be a celeb.Let kate get a job on her OWN.Let the kids be kids while the mother works! I always thought that was the way it worked?

Administrator said...

I just had an absolutely brilliant idea. Kate should take the kids out of the public eye and then there won't be any stories to leak of them in the first place!

It's outrageous to me that PA judges were giving rulings without explaining themselves. How can you possibly correct something like say a monitored visit order if you don't know WHY you were ordered it?

I don't even understand that. I have never been in front of a judge who didn't explain at least in a few sentences why they were ruling as they did, and for big rulings, they can go on for ten or fifteen minutes explaining themselves. It's called making a record and if you don't do it you're opening yourself up to be vulnerable to an appeal. PA needs to get out of King Arthur's Court and join the rest of America.

I know it's hard to understand, but I was pointing out the hypocricy. I don't honestly want Carla or ANYONE to be held in contempt. I actually think this whole case is just making it worse on the children and needs to stop. Carla leaked at least two stories, albeit unintentionally. But a leak is a leak. Why all the hate at Jon but not her?

IDModo said...

Midnight Madness:With respect,if the children were being obviously beaten, with visible bruises, every day, would we suggest that a therapist help them learn to cope with the fact, because it was not going to go away?

Emotional abuse is as serious as physical abuse and has equally long lasting effects.If Kate is not going to change perhaps it's time for the whole situation to be looked at by people with authority who are able to protect the children.

IDModo said...

Incidentally, I'm sure everyone realized that in my previous comment I did not mean to imply that the children were being beaten daily, it was an EXAMPLE.

No where near as dirty said...

There is NO HOPE for those kids as long as Jon is afraid of THE TRUTH coming out about HIM.

He will NOT have a decent lawyer, will NOT ask Paul Peterson for help, and he will NOT insist on a guardian ad litem for the kids.

Jon's "dirty laundry" can't be anywhere as near as dirty as Kate's so... WHAT IS HE AFRAID OF???

Starz22 said...

IDModo...

I understand what you are saying.These kids may not be beaten on a daily basis..
You have made it clear that kate is the type that will heap emotional abuse on the kids.
It's not like you are making this up.It can be prooven on years of video.kate wants to be the center of attention.kate DEMANDS attention.She dosent care who she has to toss under the train.

We have seen her toss her mother and father... Jons parents her brother and sister in law...her friends and her HUSBAND and even the people in her church!

How long is it going to be ok for kate to abuse the kids?

How long do the kids have to WORK before they finally get to be kids?

How much longer do they have to work to please thier mom?

starz22 said...

No where...
Are you for real? Both Jon and kate gave the ok for TLC to film thier lives.Jon was in it from the start cause his wife told him.They didnt have a clue to what they were getting into.
Jon made it clear that he was done with all the begging.He wanted thier lives back...the privacy...Kate said hell no! So kate let Jon go...AS LONG as the show would go on!

Under years of contracts...Jon cant say a damn thing.Its ok for kate to make the kids work.Its ok for kate to bash Jon BUT OMG if Jon says anything about kate he'll get sued!

Jon dosent stand a chance against kate and TLC"S top paid attornerys!They know it! and they are laughing all the way to the bank!

silimom said...

I would like to point out a few things:

1) Kate's attorney (Mark Momjian) stated on October 16, 2010 that they intended to file a complaint with the court regarding Jon's tweet. This is old news, and I am sure Jon and his lawyer (if he has one) were aware this was coming and are prepared.

2) If the rumors are true, Jon has been granted more time with his children. In addition, he has a job and aside from the tweet about the judge ruling that Kate could continue filming with the kids and a comment he made after it had come out they were going to Australia that the judge had okayed it and he had to abidr by that decision, he's been relatively quiet and doing his best to be a private citizen.

3) This is a grandstanding move by Kate's team to deflect attention onto Jon and away from the criticism many in the mainstream media and public have made of her decision to take the kids out of school for three weeks as well as the gossip surrounding her and Steve Neild.
It's the same old "Jon's selling out the kids. I'm the responsible parent." crapshe's been spewing now for over a year.

Is it frustrating? Yes, because people here see it for what it is. Should we react? No. Don't reward her with your attention. This will work out in the end. People will see this for the pathetic attempt for attention it is.

Midnight Madness said...

Emotional abuse is as serious as physical abuse and has equally long lasting effects.If Kate is not going to change perhaps it's time for the whole situation to be looked at by people with authority who are able to protect the children.

___________________

Sadly, though, it's not happening, and will not happen as long as she denies that there is a problem. According to the CYS, here in PA emotional abuse is child abuse. If the kids were being physically beaten they would be taken away because of obvious marks on the bodies. It's much easier to prove. Emotional abuse leaves scars on the psyche, and yet people with authority are standing by and watching. Nevertheless, the scars as visible. We can see it when we look into those little faces.

The question is...why hasn't anyone stepped up and done anything? Does Kate (and TLC) hold that much power that fear is evoked in the minds of any person who dares challenge them? Is it because emotional abuse is so very difficult to prove, and nobody is willing to step up to the plate because they know they would have a long and formidable road ahead of them?

They don't have GAL's because the judge is the one who appoints them and since this judge (who's doing such a bang up job already) obviously feels Kate is doing such a good job making decisions for and about her children I doubt he'd order GALs who could recommend the very opposite of what Kate AND the judge are deciding.

gotyournumberKate said...

Admin..Can you please translate this?

In some states, as in Pennsylvania, the power to punish for contempts is restricted to offences committed by the officers of the court, or in its presence, or in disobedience of its mandates, orders, or rules; but no one is guilty of a contempt for any publication made or act done out of court which is not in violation of such lawful rules or orders, or disobedience of its process. Similar provisions, limiting the power of the courts of the United States to punish for contempts, are incorporated in 28 U.S.C.

==============================================
You are right. Kate's issues are two-fold. The first being that as a raging narcissist, she is unable to cope with having to co-parent with Jon. She wants total control of the kids to further her agenda, and no one to stand in her way or answer to. The other problem for her is that since Jon has become a private citizen, who has done nothing untoward in over a year, she must try to bait him into doing so. By wisely staying silent, Jon is not falling into her trap. Kate was portrayed as the much better parent when Jon was wilding out a couple years ago. I'm sure she'd like it if Jon could trip up again in some way.

Which site was it that reported Jon had tried to stop the Austraila trip, ROL, TMZ? I don't remember, but maybe that's where this comtempt BS is coming from.

Carol said...

I believe this is all being done now to divert attention away from the stories that Kate / Steve are the ones selling pictures to the press. A couple of days ago, if you googled "kate gosselin", that's what all the news stories hits were talking about, now it's all about Jon being in contempt, Jon selling stories. It's also put out there to stir the pot of the "fans" vs "non-fans", to get Kate's name, as mother of the year, protecting her children, back out in the public since Jon starting to gain back some crediblity by getting a job, staying out of the public eye.

Moose -

I remember that pastor well. A GWOPer sent him a letter voicing his/her concern over inviting K8 to speak . The reverend sent a VERY NASTY and completely inappropriate response (it was posted on GWOP). I was shocked at the tone of the response.

IIRC, he is no longer part of that church.

SAHM said...

Unbelievable!!!! What a biotch!! If I were Jon, i would have my attorney subpoena the tabs and reveal whoever the "insider source" is...not sure if that can be done?

This divorce has just become ridiculous! Kate reminds me of my ex.... she clearly has not moved on and HATES the fact that Jon has moved on and is finally happy. She will continue her quest to ruin Jon and make him pay for her unhappiness until the kids are 18 and he stops paying c/s. And even then, i don't think it will end. I think she will always remind him and the kids how daddy ruined things and made her life a living hell. Nothing will be her fault.

Sad.... very sad!

sftk said...

We knew Kate and her PR team would have to do something to try and deflect attention away from this latest "vacation" and bet she will be making the rounds of the shows with her "bf" Meridith, or the ladies of the View crying how this was such an educational experience for the kids, blah, blah, blah. So many keep "dumbing" down in the real world now, and placing such importance on entertainment without realizing the impact this has on people. Some people are willing to do anything to get their 15 mins. of fame or to make a buck and unfortunately it often impacts children. If you think about John supporting his kids financially, it would make more sense for him to continue to let the kids film and make money which at least guarantees food and clothing etc. for them. It would be an easy way out for him in a sense. So the fact he wants this gravy train to end shows he is at least putting the emotional and physical needs of the kids first, not his.

Yes, Carla did "leak" news about the trips, while intentional or not. I remember watching on youtube some of the show when they did the garage sale before the move. Carla was helping in that show and Kate was pulling her diva act big time. Kate was complaining about being up so early to go set up, angry because the tables were not there when they arrived, the condition of the tables, the misspelling on the posters, the lack of customers, Jon forgetting the twins lunches etc. I though to myself I would never put myself in a situation with someone like her if I could help it. Carla and Jon were doing most of the work while Kate stood around complaining as usual. There is no amount of money worth being treated like that. I also remember others saying Kate complained about the way Carla organized the kitchen cupboards in the new house. I wonder if Carla would treat someone the way Kate has treated her? Imagine the way Ashley is treated! If I can't be treated (respected) as an equal by someone I would not befriend them.

Sadly, the emotional impact on the kids continues, and for Kate to continue to pull their Father down is only compounding it. The kids will choose sides and hold it against her forever.

BaronessB said...

I think in this new situation John is going to drop the bomb. He has been quite for to long. He is getting tired of his children getting pushed around and have no rights. The rights they do have are ruined by their mother. Who is to busy so speak tanning, vacations and looking like a walking talking barbie doll mom. John might not have the best legal team that Tlc can buy. He might not have all the cash in the world to take TLC and Kate under. But I believe some way John will find a way to win. Hopefully it will be this year.

Kate has been called out to many time over and over again with her lies. The problem is Kate cant even remember what she lies about. So the stories balloon up more and more.

Ive said this before many times. The show has lost its appeal once they moved into the Kates Fortress. The show just reaked of NEW MONEY. Everything was Bigger, more expensive, more vacations, more trips, Free products and gifts, parties and etc. It was getting to be a "Bragging contest" show and tell so speak. Well I can do this better and look what I have. I dont care so much about the duggar clan either. But ive seen them grow up to on camera. They also got a big house to. That they did built some what. But my point is. The duggars are very humble people. They never had money and fame. Change whom they are. Michelle is not out sunbathing, nails, cosmetic procedures, shopping for high end things etc. Either was little peoples mom and that other family table of 12. They all might of got a good pay check. But you dont see them flaunting everything they own.

New money never lasts in this world. Unless you know how to properly invest it and make the correct decisions in life.

---
I am pretty much done with this whole debacle, after two 6 year olds were expelled from school(removed, asked to leave, whatever), and this wonderful mother then decides this is a great time to pull all of her kids out of school for 3 weeks to go to Australia. Who does that? The answer is Kate Gosselin. This is the last straw for me, as she does nothing to make life normal for her kids, but rather always did and always will consider what is best for HER. Her claims that she must WORK to get a paycheck, means her 8 kids must WORK to support themselves. Minus school, minus friends, minus a normal holiday and down time, which they so much deserve and need as children. How is this good for the kids? Seriously.

This woman has always put a twist on reality to get what she wants, when she wants it, at the expense of her own flesh and blood and anyone else who she crosses her along her way.

It has been reported that she left home early (high school or shortly thereafter) to move in with a boyfriend, as she has never been happy with anything. She moves from house to house, throws away relationships like they are nothing once they have served their purpose, lies about her actual financial situation, tries to make people feel sorry for her, NOTHING is ever good enough for her. And this applies to her children as well.

The children need to have a voice in Court, as clearly this woman is not capable of making any decision in the best interest of her kids, as it always was and will be about Queen Kate. If there is nothing to fear, a Guardian ad Litem needs to be apppointed asp, so the children have a voice in the Court. If everything is kosher, there should never ever be any reason NOT to do so.

Hippie Chick said...

This is heartwrenching. Kate just a) needs to stay relevant somehow or b) really hates Jon more than she loves her kids (I don't know who said that before, but it's true). Kate can't just be a mom to those kids & let Jon have custody on some days, & go with it. I honestly do not think Jon is leaking anything, it's Kate's camp, & Kate needs to blame someone, & Kate's "star" is fading, so she needs to stay in the news somehow, & this is the only way. When I saw on TMZ the comments, NOBODY cares about Kate at all. Everyone is sick of her face. She isn't in the 'rags' anymore.

All the pap photo leaks, who did that?? (ahem, Kate's people) Wasn't Jon! He never said anything on Twitter, I follow him. He frigin texted me once! Not ONE bad word against Kate. This is so sad for the kids. They will resent Kate for this even more than anything. I have to believe that the judge will tell Kate to STFU & SHE is the one blabbering on & on & filming them & talking out of school. And TAKING them out of school. I don't know anymore about her. She is just...a bad person with a black heart.

Westcoaster said...

I agree that this is a smokescreen move, to deflect attention from the poor parenting choice to work (sorry, play) Down Under for 3 weeks while the rest of the nation's children return to school. By some accounts her older children were very upset to be taken away from both holiday time with dad AND from school - their unhappy faces in photos do say something. Obviously the Australian press could have cared less about her visit, and she seems equally invisible in New Zealand - probably using her pink phone to call her lawyers to fire away.

But truly as I scroll the morning paper, with the sad stories from Arizona and more loss of life from flooding in Australia, the perspective here becomes, for me, a deep "who cares?" I am sorry for these children, and yes, I do read this trainwreck, but she is just not worth it.

She has to stir up more controversry so she can get back on the talk shows. Pure and Simple.

Jon needs to take the offend permanently from her, and hire the lawyer that knew his Dad.

I have an 10 year old daughter, and right now nothing is more important to her than hanging out with her friends, she was upset that today was a snow day in St Louis and school is closed, we got her a cell phone for Christmas and she is non stop talking to her group of people and socialize all day long. I just feel so bad for Mady and Cara, they are on a never ending trip to who knows what zoo outing around the world not having a normal tween life, my daughter is in 5 th grade and right now every moment of academics is very important, they have been looking into long divisions and heavy on history and fractions ( oh do I hate fractions), if they( Mady and Cara) are high academics achivements and expectations they sure are not getting any of this lined up according to any curriculum I know of. I just can't piture that my kids would hate trips but too much of one good thing is just like not enough. They have become their own traveling circus, and I have the sad image of the 8 kids being put away in their box every night for the next flight over, they will rebel and hate their life if they don't already, I am no body language expert, but if my daughter sat in a zoo in Australia her arms crossed with a pissed off look like Mady in the top row, I would have concerns; but again this is Kate Gosselin we are talking about not your average sensitive human being ( is she human?)
Again how much of looking at animals behind bars can you stand? Are they relating?
Anyhow, she can send people to court and get mad on tv and cash in her money, she will NEVER be able to control what her kids feel and will remember, at one point unless she murders all 8 of them they will grow up and have their own opinion one day. Perhaps we are all wrong, but a certain something tells me we are not.

You're right.

Kate Gosselin does NOT deserve the attention lavished on her on a daily basis. She certainly doesn't care if it's negative. All that matters to her is that her face and name are out there assuring no one will forget her. It's one more of a litany of things Kate wants and Kate gets.

No wonder sweet Beth said "goodbye" to this fiasco and moved on with her private life and dear family. Ever wonder about the things she could tell? Kate coveted everything Beth had and has tried to replicate it and more. Funny thing is that Beth and hubby sold the big property and downsized to more affordable living. Beth's values were good and pure, Kate's are not. Sad, really. Kate could have learned so very much from Beth and Bob. I think Beth dumped the Gosselin mess, not the other way around.

No, Family Court is supposed to decide what is in the best interest of the children. Period. Not Kate the Queen or Jon. With all of the controversary with these kids filming, when, if ever, will the Judge ever get around to determining what is in the best interest of the kids. Appointing a Guardian to these children in consideration of their best interest in Family Court should be done asp,if there is nothing to fear. Let alone representing the best interest of the kids. 2 kids expelled from kindergarten at age 6- Warning Flags to the Judge who is overseeing this case.

Again, the kids need someone to represent their interests since they did not sign up for this, and only their mother is profitting. HELLO!!! Again, if the kids are fine, the Judge should have no problem appointing a Guardian to them, TO PROTECT THEIR BEST INTEREST. Seems kind of elementary, doesn't it? After all, how many family with 8 kids film non-stop with no one checking to see how the kids are doing? The answer is NONE. If everything is perfect, no harm in having the kids appointed a Guardian to protect their interests. It would be the humane thing to do.

If it looks, walks and talks like a b**ch..... said...

If Jon is not prepared and ready for the court hearing this time, with videos of what she has been doing on TV bashing him and talking about things they were both told not to talk about, then he is doomed. Word is he is working with Paul Peterson now, so maybe he is getting some good solid advice and will be ready to go with some proof that she is the one who originally broke the courts ruling. She is one utter and complete bitch. You can't read anywhere anymore that the vast majority of commenters hate her. Except of course, the 5 or 6 sheeple who are still hanging around hoping for a meeting with their hero.

BeDoneNow said...

I too feel "done". I have been so worried for those kids but apparently no one can do anything to help them. They are property of their mother and she is free to neglect, abuse and then sell them as she pleases. And there is nothing we can do.

This will go down in some kind of history as a shameful period where the American people sat and watched as 8 babies were destroyed before our eyes.

The years of tragedy ahead are starting now, with 2 of the littlest ones being socially and emotionally retarded in their growth and their mother apparently preferring it that way. It has started now, but the worst is yet to come.

Maybe in the future some lessons will be learned about allowing mentally ill parents such total control of children in exchange for money. but I doubt it.

She is too disgusting for my attention any longer. I used to be outraged at her antics and her abuse of every single person around her, especially her children. But I dont care any more. Life is too complicated and too short for me to waste energy on a TV nut, especially since there is nothing at all I can do to help the children.

Sad in Tucson said...

Fellow bloggers,

Here is some more information about young Christina-Taylor Green, who was senselessly murdered in Tucson, along with 5 others on Saturday. Christina attended the event with her neighbor. Her parents were not there. My friend's boyfriend is a firefighter, and he texted her around 11 a.m. to say that Christina passed away at the University Medical Center hospital on Saturday.

School resumed today (Monday) and the teachers at her school are attempting to keep things as normal as possible for the children. There has been some intense media scrutiny of the school, including interviews of students there.

President Obama will come to Tucson on Wednesday to attend a public memorial for all the victims at the University of Arizona. Services for Christina will be Thursday afternoon.

Gabrielle Giffords is still critical and on a ventilator, but she is responding with thumbs up, hand squeezing, etc. The doctors are very encouraged that the brain swelling has not worsened.

All of the other shooting victims, including the most critical, are still alive.

Some information that may not be national: in addition to the two men who tackled and subdued the suspect, a 61-year-old woman on the scene (who fell down once the shooting started) was close to the shooter and the magazine on the ground. She tossed it away from the shooter so he was unable to reload his weapon. This was in our local paper today (AZ Daily Star).

Thank you for updating us, Sad in Tucson.

May God bless the innocent lives that were lost that day, and may God bless

It sounds like this newest round of Kate's court maneuvers may have to do with the information that was leaked about Jon getting the kids when she is out of town.

Whatever the cause of her latest bitter attempts to cut Jon out of his children's lives so she can film them until they revolt, one thing is very clear: whenever Kate and TLC need exposure for her and upcoming episodes, they drag Jon through the mud. They are really repulsive.

And Jon's the money grubbing parent?

And looky there. They are at yet another animal themed attraction. Snore.

Just my opinion on this matter said...

Administrator said...
This also proves how obsessed Kate is with Jon. He's moved on, he's in a long-term relationship, he is quietly working a real job and quietly vistiing his kids.

She's the one who cannot stop talking about him, the divorce, the kids issues. She is OBSESSSED. She cannot get over him. She needs to get a life of her own, get a long-term relationship of her own with someone she is not paying to be around (isn't that prostutition?), and get a real job. Then maybe she won't have so much time to dwell on Jon and a relationship that was dead and buried more than two years ago.

Kate? MOVE ON!

Admin,

I feel that Kate is angry at Jon because she is annoyed that other women have wanted him after she discarded him. I also feel that she is angry because she has not had any public relationships post divorce and Jon has had several.

Also, I think she is VERY angry that Jon did not go along with the charade (faking being the happily married couple). At one point Kate was poised to be the next Martha Stewart or Rachael Ray or Kelly Ripa - she was on the verge....before the boob job and divorce. I really think she was being prepped to be a talk show host (all the media training). The had her being a domestic goddess (cookbook that never saw the light of day), clothing designer (the Healthtex line that got dumped overseas), spokesperson, motivational speaker to name a few. A lot of these projects were put on hold or terminated because of the negative publicity from the divorce. Have we seen anymore public speakings at churches other than the ones that were booked pre-divorce? Actually she has lost a lot!

They tried to get her back on track with DWTS but SHE FAILED. Her true narcissitic byotch shone through and she ruined her own self in the public's eye. She did it again on Sarah Palin's Alaska, probably due to her own insecurity and jealousy of Sarah and her family. Kate is not happy unless she is the center of attention.

I have looked back on old episodes of Jon and Kate plus 8 and I really believe the change in attitude came from within Kate. Perhaps she became angry or jealous that Jon was seen as the better parent or more personable or fun? I mean look how she discarded the more motherly Beth and Aunt Jodi? If you look back to season 3, BOTH Jon and Kate seem to greedily be enjoying riding their gravy train and raking in the freebies and big bucks. BUT then look to season 4, Kate is huddled in one side of their interview chair away from Jon (a change happened in her even before the sham that was Hawaii). Look at Jon's body language - he is afraid to speak and walking on eggshells around her. He has probably been chewed up and spit out by her already. I think after an extended absence from Jon and brainwashing that SHE was the Star, probably by her PR people, Stevie boy and TLC she turned on Jon. I think this came around the time she did her book tour. Maybe she became infatuated with Steve? Who knows? But Jon is a follower, not a leader and I am sure he would of happily been the Mark Counselos to her Kelly Ripa.

This is all just my opinion. By the way I have Masters degrees in Education and Psychology and have worked with at-risk children and families. I am a certified professional in my state. I am ashamed to admit I used to admire this family and wished I could be as organized and structured as Kate. I guess the joke was on a whole bunch of us!

Knows Quality said...

Well, at least the mystery of who Kate talks to all of the time on her pink iPhone has now been solved - her ATTORNEY.

She's been busy, plotting and planning more ways to destroy Jon and wreck her vengeance.

Which is really too bad, because ultimately, its the children who are the victims in this real-life "War of the Roses."

The children need to have a voice in Court, as clearly this woman is not capable of making any decision in the best interest of her kids, as it always was and will be about Queen Kate. If there is nothing to fear, a Guardian ad Litem needs to be apppointed asp, so the children have a voice in the Court. If everything is kosher, there should never ever be any reason NOT to do so.


I agree with you 100%, but IMO, someone has something to fear otherwise, why aren't there any? If everyone has the best interests of the kids at heart they should all be advocating for Guardian ad Litums. But, they're not. Makes you wonder, doesn't it, what everyone is afraid of?

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

Just let them go. She's obviously not smart enough to see that whatever she does to drag him down is only going to make her look bad. She's slowly digging her own grave, but lacks the intellect to figure that out.

Was this Patricia Maisch? She was interviewed on the news channel yesterday and started to talk politics and I thought I heard her say something not-so-nice about Republicans and the interview ended shortly thereafter. I was only half listening, so I'm not sure what she was trying to get across, but it was clearly uncomfortable for the news anchor.
Can you imagine the devastation the shooter could have done if those quick-thinking citizens hadn't done what they did to stop him?

________________________

This is a right to know appeal that was filed after the intial request was denied. The People reporter didn't file a complaint regarding how often Kate called the police, but rather maintained that the public, and not just the local community, had a right to access the police records. It appears that the appeal was granted.

It looks like Kate most likely didn't invite the neighbor over to her house for morning coffee and conversation!

Interesting! Thanks for posting...

Bubbles said...

In the pics from the Daily Mail link, I actually like Kate's outfit. I'd wear that shirt, and possibly the skirt, but I'd have probably paired the shirt with capris for that particular outing. Even the shoes are cute and appropriate!

I've been reading here and at GWOP over the last few days so I'm not sure where I read it or if I read it at both places, but people have commented that they think Kate is angry because Jon is happy now. Personally, I don't get the feeling that Jon is happy. I do see him acting more stable, and attempting to have a "normal" life, but he has jumped from one woman to the next since Kate and until he learns to be happy by himself he will never be truly happy. Just my opinion, of course.

Mandy said...

Everyone has a bad day and has acted like a diva or has had a meltdown once in a while. We have plenty of pictures of our kids where the expressions on their faces aren't what we had hoped.

But there are repeated and undeniable examples of Kate's meltdowns and diva behavior, and scores and scores of pictures of the Gosselin children looking miserable and sad, often with their heads bowed and shoulders rounded - enough to make your heart break.

What I don't get is this: How do the sheeple (liking how that word rolls off the tongue) excuse these things over and over and over? It's so obvious these kids are unhappy. How can their hearts NOT break for the kids? Are they so unhappy with their own lives that they identify with Kate? Someone help me out here!

The woman is shrewd, conniving, dishonest and a liar. I can see her trying to destroy Jon and leech every penny out of him, in her need for control. Jon better get his sh*t together and man up, he's going to need to if he plans on ever 'being done' w/that control freak.

This latest chapter in the Gosselin debacle makes it crystal clear, IMO, just how relentless and powerful TLC is.

K8 making these blasphemous statements and accusations is her "F*CK YOU" to the world . She KNOWS that TLC has her back ( for the time being anyway ) , she isn't afraid of anything or anyone.

I don't think TLC or K8 cares one iota of how the public perceives her, they just want their $$$.

Thanks for pointing me to your posts. While I'm not a professional and have no credentials, I know, based on my experience, that these children are primed, as you said, for any number of disorders and/or problems. I wouldn't be surprised if, among all the children, these problems will run the gamut of various disorders, diagnoses and mental health issues. This is why it is so frustrating and downright painful, to watch the abuse going on right under our noses, broadcast on TV for the whole country to see for God's sake, and no one seems to be able to do anything about it. I ask myself, why am I more concerned w/these childrens present as well as their future, when their own parents seem oblivious to what is going on right under their noses. God help those poor babies, it seems no one else will.

_________________________

I could be totally wrong, but I'm wondering if they're afraid of perhaps getting sued? I've heard she has all her workers (well, nannies, housekeepers, chefs, anyway) sign CA's....if they spilled the beans she could sue them, couldn't she? I do wonder too though, why Jodi & Kevin and not more people are speaking up, ones that haven't signed anything.

Administrator said...

What I don't get is this: How do the sheeple (liking how that word rolls off the tongue) excuse these things over and over and over?
&&&&&&&&&&&&&&
It's all about projection. They too remember a time they didn't want their kids around. They remember a time when they were desperate for money and would have done anything to get it no matter how demeaning. They too once treated their husbands like doormats or put their kid in a room by himself to go potty or puke. We know this is what they do because whenever Kate does anything bad almost immediately a sheeple will say, But I did that too once!

All people can make these kinds of mistakes in life. I'm sure ALL of us could find something we did once that Kate did too. They don't understand that for Kate if it had only been a few times she did such terrible things no one would care. For them I assume they don't make mistakes that often. It is not PERSONAL on other people if we disagree with what Kate does. But she is a raging lunatic day in and day out. It is not an occasional lapse, it is a daily thing, it is a WAY OF LIFE.

It is the abilility for us to distinguish occasional lapses versus a way of life that separates the sheeple from those who refuse to accept the way Kate is treating these kids.

Midnight Madness said...

Makes you wonder, doesn't it, what everyone is afraid of?

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

TCL and the possibility of slander suits, even if they didn't sign a CA. It's a powerful entity. Do we know that Jodi and Kevin never signed one? I wouldn't put it past her to require even family members to be on record as having signed a CA.

Could she sue someone who signed a CA if that person spilled the beans? Absolutely. With her penchant for lawsuits, those attorneys would have one drafted in the blink of an eye. I have a friend who was associated with a major celebrity. Things weren't going too well there, and I suggested, in jest, that she should write a book. In all seriousness, she said to me, "You don't understand. I don't have much. Just a car and my pet, and trust me, they would take me for both of those things, and anything else they could find. I'd be left with nothing."

It also depends on the wording of the CA, and the duration. In TLC's case, it probably runs until Kate's in an old folk's home.

Administrator said...

Oh for goodness sakes, TLC does not control the court system.
&&&&&&&&&&
No one said TLC is sitting there pulling the strings. What was said is that TLC backs Kate. If you think they don't you're living in a fantasy world.

How do you think Kate is paying for one of the best, if not the best, family law attorneys in the state of PA? Change between the couch cusions? The paper towel fairy?

Kate is spending a FORTUNE to buy her way through this family law system. Unfortunatly those who have the most money to throw at the best attorneys often prevail. That fortune is backed by TLC.

You conveniently left out the part of the OP's post in which s/he described TLC as "relentless and powerful." Sorry, but when someone refers to TLC as "relentless and powerful" in connection with a court matter, the person most definitely is implying that TLC is able to influence legal proceedings.

Moose Mania said...

And "blasphemous" statements? For any statement by Kate to be blasphemous, Jon Gosselin would have to be a god or somehow sacred. Is that really how you perceive him? If so, wow.

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

You need to get with the times. Blasphemy, in contemporary urban language, no longer refers exclusively to profanity against a deity, religion or something sacred. It can also be defined as a statement, comment or writing directed toward a person who one considers a rival, antagonist, or adversary.

I would say that, for Kate, Jon fits that description perfectly.

Administrator said...

I didn't conveniently leave out anything. I completely agree with the OP, TLC is relentless and powerful. They have invested millions upon millions helping Kate do what she needs to do to remain famous and making TLC money--if that means funneling her money to pay her legal bills, helping her obtain the best attorney in the country (I don't think she found THAT attorney just asking around at the local Y) advising her what to do (Kate: I was TOLD I had to divorce Jon), and so on and so on. She is under contract, it sure as heck is powerful when you have enslaved yourself to the bidding of a network until 2012.

This network hired their OWN lobbyist to counteract Rep. Murt's bill. They also had a big shot lawyer at a big shot firm send ME a cease and disest letter.

Relentless and powerful? You bet. Scared of them? Not a chance.

TLC testified at a court hearing when Jon was trying to stop the filming. A rep admitted they never paid the kids, among other shocking things. They are directly INVOLVED with court hearings. Not just influencing them, they are PART OF IT.

Theory said, "You conveniently left out the part of the OP's post in which s/he described TLC as "relentless and powerful." Sorry, but when someone refers to TLC as "relentless and powerful" in connection with a court matter, the person most definitely is implying that TLC is able to influence legal proceedings."

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

Nothing was left out. TLC IS relentless and powerful, and if, for the sake of being argumentative (picking a fight) you want to read an implication into a statement, I'm certain that you will find a way to do it.

There was no implication that TLC has its hands in the legal process, but TLC is funding Kate's means to hire representation that she would never be able to engage if TLC weren't behind her all the way. Therefore, TLC does, indirectly, have its long arm right there in the court system with her. And you better believe it does know everything that's going on in Kate's litigious world.

More Conspiracy Theories said...

I didn't conveniently leave out anything. I completely agree with the OP, TLC is relentless and powerful. They have invested millions upon millions helping Kate do what she needs to do to remain famous and making TLC money--if that means funneling her money to pay her legal bills, helping her obtain the best attorney in the country (I don't think she found THAT attorney just asking around at the local Y) advising her what to do (Kate: I was TOLD I had to divorce Jon), and so on and so on. She is under contract, it sure as heck is powerful when you have enslaved yourself to the bidding of a network until 2012.

****

Yes, you've told us a million times that you received a cease and desist letter from them. I realize that you think you're quite the martyr for your brave stance against the big bad network, but give it a rest.

You think TLC made Kate get a divorce? The conspiracy theories just keep getting better and better! I don't believe that is the exact quote from Kate. I believe she said she was told she was getting divorced, which I interpreted to mean that Jon had told her it was over, not that TLC forced her to get a divorce. That's beyond ludicrous.

Administrator said...

I think you are picking a fight too but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you honestly want to discuss this subject. Of course TLC wants Kate to win everything, otherwise if Jon wins they won't be able to film the kids! This is just elementery--TLC does whatever to continue the money train and they are AGAINST Jon, they have been very open about how much they disagree with him. They have been very open they back KATE on this and if you want examples I can give them to you later. Even the sheeple don't like TLC anymore, you need to catch up with the rest of the sheeple crowd. They don't like TLC and they also don't like the kids being pulled out of school. It is slow progress with them but it's going in the right direction.

When someone says a judge was bought off, I highly doubt anyone actually thinks some little troll from TLC is sneaking around the back door in the damp darkness with a wad of cash like it's 1922 and they have to report to the boss. Rather we mean that TLC has provided Kate with enough funds to win any custody battle. The legal system is not fair, or maybe you believe all the propoganda they teach you in elementery school that it is. Guess what, the legal system is not fair, it's not democracy, it's a game. The legal system is all about who can PLAY THE GAME the best. It is a GAME. Who has the best attorney who can best weasle their way in the whole system is a key part of that, and the best attorneys are bought with cash money. Lawyers that go to law school with noble intentions to bring justice to the world usually end up very depressed and disenchanted when they actually start working in a real courtroom. Rather attorneys who do it because they just like to play the game are successful and enjoy it.

TLC provides Kate an amazing opportunity to practically BUY her case. TLC enabled her, buy providing her the funds to do so, to acheive an incredible amount of momentum that now Jon is finding almost impossible to stop. Mission accomplished.

Administrator said...

Actually this was Kate's quote: “It’s the place where I called my divorce attorney. I knew at that point, I was told that was the next step, I had to do it."

We do not know who told her to do it. Don't you think if Jon told her to get a divorce she would have SAID THAT? She would jump all over that, JON told me to do this see it's his fault. Instead she puts it in the passive tone, "I was told." It might have been Jon, okay, just as much as it might have been her advisers at TLC, just as much as a friend, or family, or whoever, but to suggest that Kate is not influenced by TLC at all is ridiculous. Jon himself said they have "brainwashed" her. Actors working with networks talk to network "people" all the time, this is par for the course. Depending on how much guidence they need, a network can get VERY involved, everything from how you cut your hair to where you are seen on vacation, and yes, right down to a court case.

The cease and disest is not a martyr move, it's just proof that TLC is all bark and no bite.

Administrator said...

Eye roll. Most of us think TLC advised Kate regarding all aspects of the divorce, if you don't that's fine. MOVE ON.

I did not share ANYTHING about my personal convictions regarding how I approach the law. There is nothing I say that won't be criticized. If I say I am an idealist I'll be torn apart for being unrealistic or disingenuous, if I say it's a game I'll be torn apart for not caring. I'm not saying anything, nor do I think you seriously care what my true convictions are. What do you do for a living?

Who's afraid? said...

Makes you wonder, doesn't it, what everyone is afraid of?

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

I'm wondering what Kate, Jon and the judge are afraid of. Why wouldn't they want the best for the children which is GALs? I think it's pretty obvious why Kate doesn't want them, but what about the judge and Jon?

I told him now what? said...

I took that quote from Khate to mean that she was already in touch with divorce attorneys at that point and they told her the next step after telling Jon she wanted a divorce would be to file. I personally think that was a mistake on her/their part - that she should have waited and let Jon file but then Jon didn't want a divorce. He wanted counseling and to stop the show because he knew what was tearing his marriage apart. But she found a way to make the public forget that she is the one who filed by bad mouthing Jon on every airway, and to anyone who would listen. She filed for divorce because it was the next step in ending the marriage because she had no intentions of trying to work it out.

That an attorney advised Kate when to file for divorce makes sense, except the very next thing Kate said was that she spent the vacation researching divorce attorneys. So according to her first someone told her to file, then she looked for an attorney.

Let's get real, she has no family or friends. It was far more likely one of her TLC handlers.

Helpthesekids said...

"So obsessed with what she wants, she will ignore or neglect her children while claiming the opposite. She plays the martyr and expects constant attention. Her demanding behavior almost guarantees it.

"If she is divorced, she may have grown to hate her ex-husband more than she loves her children. She abuses the children by depriving them of access to their father, because she’s punishing him for not delivering what she wanted in a husband. She refuses to consider that she played any role in the marriage break-up."


Truth is Kate Gosselin is a female sociopath and those pigs at TLC encourage her evil for greed and ratings. Kate Gosselin destroys every human being in the end she associates with, sooner or later. Free the Gosselin children and give them to their father!

Karen said...

Admin, isn't it just a normal practice for a judge to appoint a GAL for the children. So much money is involved, so many kids, and two parents who cannot work out anything on their own would certainly point to the need, wouldn't it? Something is just "off" with this Gosselin mess. Who is looking out for the kids, really?

JudyK said...

Oh, come on...I so disagree with the notion they are not a couple. I think Kate likes Steve because he does stand up to her...just as she said in an earlier interview, she doesn't "want to be in charge anymore." And if he doesn't like her nonsense, then he doesn't have to spend non-paid holidays with her in addition to the daily drama.

Is it known that he's not paid on holidays? He and his family have been known to spend holidays with her, and they've been photographed. Could it be that those are nothing more than PR shoots, and he is, in fact, being paid by TLC to show what an amicable relationship they have? Perhaps he's on salary, and any time he spends with her is considered "working"...!

Everyone has a bad day and has acted like a diva or has had a meltdown once in a while. We have plenty of pictures of our kids where the expressions on their faces aren't what we had hoped.

But there are repeated and undeniable examples of Kate's meltdowns and diva behavior, and scores and scores of pictures of the Gosselin children looking miserable and sad, often with their heads bowed and shoulders rounded - enough to make your heart break.

What I don't get is this: How do the sheeple (liking how that word rolls off the tongue) excuse these things over and over and over? It's so obvious these kids are unhappy. How can their hearts NOT break for the kids? Are they so unhappy with their own lives that they identify with Kate? Someone help me out here!

"This is a record of a complaint filed by a People reporter in May 2009 regarding how often Kate called the police on her neighbor."

________________________

This is a right to know appeal that was filed after the intial request was denied. The People reporter didn't file a complaint regarding how often Kate called the police, but rather maintained that the public, and not just the local community, had a right to access the police records. It appears that the appeal was granted.

It looks like Kate most likely didn't invite the neighbor over to her house for morning coffee and conversation!

Interesting! Thanks for posting...

The children need to have a voice in Court, as clearly this woman is not capable of making any decision in the best interest of her kids, as it always was and will be about Queen Kate. If there is nothing to fear, a Guardian ad Litem needs to be apppointed asp, so the children have a voice in the Court. If everything is kosher, there should never ever be any reason NOT to do so.


I agree with you 100%, but IMO, someone has something to fear otherwise, why aren't there any? If everyone has the best interests of the kids at heart they should all be advocating for Guardian ad Litums. But, they're not. Makes you wonder, doesn't it, what everyone is afraid of?

Just my opinion on this matter said...

Administrator said...
This also proves how obsessed Kate is with Jon. He's moved on, he's in a long-term relationship, he is quietly working a real job and quietly vistiing his kids.

She's the one who cannot stop talking about him, the divorce, the kids issues. She is OBSESSSED. She cannot get over him. She needs to get a life of her own, get a long-term relationship of her own with someone she is not paying to be around (isn't that prostutition?), and get a real job. Then maybe she won't have so much time to dwell on Jon and a relationship that was dead and buried more than two years ago.

Kate? MOVE ON!

Admin,

I feel that Kate is angry at Jon because she is annoyed that other women have wanted him after she discarded him. I also feel that she is angry because she has not had any public relationships post divorce and Jon has had several.

Also, I think she is VERY angry that Jon did not go along with the charade (faking being the happily married couple). At one point Kate was poised to be the next Martha Stewart or Rachael Ray or Kelly Ripa - she was on the verge....before the boob job and divorce. I really think she was being prepped to be a talk show host (all the media training). The had her being a domestic goddess (cookbook that never saw the light of day), clothing designer (the Healthtex line that got dumped overseas), spokesperson, motivational speaker to name a few. A lot of these projects were put on hold or terminated because of the negative publicity from the divorce. Have we seen anymore public speakings at churches other than the ones that were booked pre-divorce? Actually she has lost a lot!

They tried to get her back on track with DWTS but SHE FAILED. Her true narcissitic byotch shone through and she ruined her own self in the public's eye. She did it again on Sarah Palin's Alaska, probably due to her own insecurity and jealousy of Sarah and her family. Kate is not happy unless she is the center of attention.

I have looked back on old episodes of Jon and Kate plus 8 and I really believe the change in attitude came from within Kate. Perhaps she became angry or jealous that Jon was seen as the better parent or more personable or fun? I mean look how she discarded the more motherly Beth and Aunt Jodi? If you look back to season 3, BOTH Jon and Kate seem to greedily be enjoying riding their gravy train and raking in the freebies and big bucks. BUT then look to season 4, Kate is huddled in one side of their interview chair away from Jon (a change happened in her even before the sham that was Hawaii). Look at Jon's body language - he is afraid to speak and walking on eggshells around her. He has probably been chewed up and spit out by her already. I think after an extended absence from Jon and brainwashing that SHE was the Star, probably by her PR people, Stevie boy and TLC she turned on Jon. I think this came around the time she did her book tour. Maybe she became infatuated with Steve? Who knows? But Jon is a follower, not a leader and I am sure he would of happily been the Mark Counselos to her Kelly Ripa.

This is all just my opinion. By the way I have Masters degrees in Education and Psychology and have worked with at-risk children and families. I am a certified professional in my state. I am ashamed to admit I used to admire this family and wished I could be as organized and structured as Kate. I guess the joke was on a whole bunch of us!

Call Me Crazy said...

It sounds like this newest round of Kate's court maneuvers may have to do with the information that was leaked about Jon getting the kids when she is out of town.

Whatever the cause of her latest bitter attempts to cut Jon out of his children's lives so she can film them until they revolt, one thing is very clear: whenever Kate and TLC need exposure for her and upcoming episodes, they drag Jon through the mud. They are really repulsive.

Sad in Tucson said...

Fellow bloggers,

Here is some more information about young Christina-Taylor Green, who was senselessly murdered in Tucson, along with 5 others on Saturday. Christina attended the event with her neighbor. Her parents were not there. My friend's boyfriend is a firefighter, and he texted her around 11 a.m. to say that Christina passed away at the University Medical Center hospital on Saturday.

School resumed today (Monday) and the teachers at her school are attempting to keep things as normal as possible for the children. There has been some intense media scrutiny of the school, including interviews of students there.

President Obama will come to Tucson on Wednesday to attend a public memorial for all the victims at the University of Arizona. Services for Christina will be Thursday afternoon.

Gabrielle Giffords is still critical and on a ventilator, but she is responding with thumbs up, hand squeezing, etc. The doctors are very encouraged that the brain swelling has not worsened.

All of the other shooting victims, including the most critical, are still alive.

Some information that may not be national: in addition to the two men who tackled and subdued the suspect, a 61-year-old woman on the scene (who fell down once the shooting started) was close to the shooter and the magazine on the ground. She tossed it away from the shooter so he was unable to reload his weapon. This was in our local paper today (AZ Daily Star).

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

Thank you for updating us, Sad in Tucson.
Our hearts go out to you all.

May God bless the innocent lives that were lost that day, and may God bless
the heroes that took a stand and risked their lives to protect so many others.

In times of great tragedy, angels on earth appear.

Take care,
Pink

No wonder sweet Beth said "goodbye" to this fiasco and moved on with her private life and dear family. Ever wonder about the things she could tell? Kate coveted everything Beth had and has tried to replicate it and more. Funny thing is that Beth and hubby sold the big property and downsized to more affordable living. Beth's values were good and pure, Kate's are not. Sad, really. Kate could have learned so very much from Beth and Bob. I think Beth dumped the Gosselin mess, not the other way around.

You're right.

Kate Gosselin does NOT deserve the attention lavished on her on a daily basis. She certainly doesn't care if it's negative. All that matters to her is that her face and name are out there assuring no one will forget her. It's one more of a litany of things Kate wants and Kate gets.

Mama mia, enjoy your gardening blogs. I'm a rock hound myself and will be turning my attention toward that. I'm sure it will be much better for my blood pressure.

LOL. Obviously KKate did not get a ring in New Zealand. And is mad as a hornet.

Jon needs to take the offend permanently from her, and hire the lawyer that knew his Dad.

Westcoaster said...

I agree that this is a smokescreen move, to deflect attention from the poor parenting choice to work (sorry, play) Down Under for 3 weeks while the rest of the nation's children return to school. By some accounts her older children were very upset to be taken away from both holiday time with dad AND from school - their unhappy faces in photos do say something. Obviously the Australian press could have cared less about her visit, and she seems equally invisible in New Zealand - probably using her pink phone to call her lawyers to fire away.

But truly as I scroll the morning paper, with the sad stories from Arizona and more loss of life from flooding in Australia, the perspective here becomes, for me, a deep "who cares?" I am sorry for these children, and yes, I do read this trainwreck, but she is just not worth it.

BaronessB said...

I think in this new situation John is going to drop the bomb. He has been quite for to long. He is getting tired of his children getting pushed around and have no rights. The rights they do have are ruined by their mother. Who is to busy so speak tanning, vacations and looking like a walking talking barbie doll mom. John might not have the best legal team that Tlc can buy. He might not have all the cash in the world to take TLC and Kate under. But I believe some way John will find a way to win. Hopefully it will be this year.

Kate has been called out to many time over and over again with her lies. The problem is Kate cant even remember what she lies about. So the stories balloon up more and more.

Ive said this before many times. The show has lost its appeal once they moved into the Kates Fortress. The show just reaked of NEW MONEY. Everything was Bigger, more expensive, more vacations, more trips, Free products and gifts, parties and etc. It was getting to be a "Bragging contest" show and tell so speak. Well I can do this better and look what I have. I dont care so much about the duggar clan either. But ive seen them grow up to on camera. They also got a big house to. That they did built some what. But my point is. The duggars are very humble people. They never had money and fame. Change whom they are. Michelle is not out sunbathing, nails, cosmetic procedures, shopping for high end things etc. Either was little peoples mom and that other family table of 12. They all might of got a good pay check. But you dont see them flaunting everything they own.

New money never lasts in this world. Unless you know how to properly invest it and make the correct decisions in life.

sftk said...

We knew Kate and her PR team would have to do something to try and deflect attention away from this latest "vacation" and bet she will be making the rounds of the shows with her "bf" Meridith, or the ladies of the View crying how this was such an educational experience for the kids, blah, blah, blah. So many keep "dumbing" down in the real world now, and placing such importance on entertainment without realizing the impact this has on people. Some people are willing to do anything to get their 15 mins. of fame or to make a buck and unfortunately it often impacts children. If you think about John supporting his kids financially, it would make more sense for him to continue to let the kids film and make money which at least guarantees food and clothing etc. for them. It would be an easy way out for him in a sense. So the fact he wants this gravy train to end shows he is at least putting the emotional and physical needs of the kids first, not his.

Yes, Carla did "leak" news about the trips, while intentional or not. I remember watching on youtube some of the show when they did the garage sale before the move. Carla was helping in that show and Kate was pulling her diva act big time. Kate was complaining about being up so early to go set up, angry because the tables were not there when they arrived, the condition of the tables, the misspelling on the posters, the lack of customers, Jon forgetting the twins lunches etc. I though to myself I would never put myself in a situation with someone like her if I could help it. Carla and Jon were doing most of the work while Kate stood around complaining as usual. There is no amount of money worth being treated like that. I also remember others saying Kate complained about the way Carla organized the kitchen cupboards in the new house. I wonder if Carla would treat someone the way Kate has treated her? Imagine the way Ashley is treated! If I can't be treated (respected) as an equal by someone I would not befriend them.

Sadly, the emotional impact on the kids continues, and for Kate to continue to pull their Father down is only compounding it. The kids will choose sides and hold it against her forever.

==============================================
You are right. Kate's issues are two-fold. The first being that as a raging narcissist, she is unable to cope with having to co-parent with Jon. She wants total control of the kids to further her agenda, and no one to stand in her way or answer to. The other problem for her is that since Jon has become a private citizen, who has done nothing untoward in over a year, she must try to bait him into doing so. By wisely staying silent, Jon is not falling into her trap. Kate was portrayed as the much better parent when Jon was wilding out a couple years ago. I'm sure she'd like it if Jon could trip up again in some way.

Which site was it that reported Jon had tried to stop the Austraila trip, ROL, TMZ? I don't remember, but maybe that's where this comtempt BS is coming from.
