Kate, Steve and kids have dinner in Rotorua, New Zealand


Meanwhile, court documents reveal it's actually Jon who is the plaintiff in the recent contempt of custody order filed in Berks County.

Parental alienators often have no regard for court orders. They will miss visits, won't let their kids talk on the phone to the other parent or consider it a gift or privilege when they do, show up late to things, call the cops on people. Sound familiar?

You have to drag them to court ten times to get them to comply, they think they know better than the custody order. You can either keep dragging them to court until you are financially and emotionally broken, or let them take your kids away for good. Jon right now is choosing to fight this, but how long he can actually last who knows.

GO JON! WOOO BUDDY GO! PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU!

Karen said...

Personal experience with parental alienation tells me who is practicing it in the Gosselin camp and it is not Jon. Remember the "daddy is mean" video at the kitchen table? It's all on tape and shouldn't be too difficult to prove. This story is getting sadder and sadder. Gina N. must be a saint. Can you believe the fine dinners out over and over again with Gina's husband? Who does this and who puts up with it? I just don't get it, do you?

How do we know that Jon filed a contempt motion re Kate? If he did I'm glad but I haven't seen anything that is substantiated.

BeDoneNow said...

Ruh-Roh.

Busted, Katie and Steve. Pics you aren't being paid for, that you didn't stage, and Kate isn't preening for.

The best part is seeing her 'real' face here. We have always known that she was aware and putting on a poser face for every single pic these past several years. Here is a REAL pap shot with her REAL facial expression.

Send the kids home and tramp all around the world with anyone you want, Katie. Oh, that's right, people will only pay their cash to gape at your children, not at you; and you know it.

*****************************************
My opinion is that any attorney worth her/his salt would file a countersuit, that's if Kate filed first. "You show me yours and I'll show you mine". Sad thing is that Kate has deeper pockets.

Meanwhile, the kids are missing days at school... so what, right Kate?
It's not your problem anyway, it's the school's problem- right Kate?

As long as the show goes on, everything is just peachy.

Her boys will be the only ones graduating with full beards.

Stand strong Jon. Fear nothing and no one.

And if the court does not stop her, Karma will.

For some women, money trumps everything else. It's not about fine dinners with a client; it's about how much is in the bank, and that the paycheck keeps coming in...

"How do we know that Jon filed a contempt motion re Kate? If he did I'm glad but I haven't seen anything that is substantiated."

I'm wondering the same thing. Admin., have you seen the docket?

Two biggest fools in the world sitting there!

AuntieAnn said...

If the paps can sniff out Kate and Steve sitting in a restaurant 8000 miles away from home, they would also find Kate and another sucker sitting in a restaurant in Pennsylvania IF she ever went out with another man other than her bodyguard. After all, Jon and Kate have been separated/divorced for over two years and we haven't seen her out on the town any other male besides Steve - with the exception of her hairdresser. So from all appearances I assume these two are banging up a storm.

And if Steve advises Kate on everything she does, which he appears to do, then he's advising her in her court battles with
Jon over these children. What has he got to gain by helping Kate alienate the kids from their father - other than a piece of the action. Maybe he's after the kids hard-earned money too?

Westcoaster said...

So now we can add dinners with the daddy-guard and candy stores to this cultural working vacation. TLC, really - this is worth the $$$$?

Tools.

It's getting deep said...

Kate's lawyer leaked information about her contempt petition claiming that Jon leaked stuff. Irony.

Now we learn that Jon filed first and Kate COUNTERED with her nonsense.

Why would Jon leak about Kate's petition and not his own? Exactly, he WOULDN'T.

I would suggest it's the kids' problem. They will have to make up work, and the school policy is that the teachers don't have to give them any help to understand the lessons. They are on their own to catch up. If all the kids were out with the flu all this time, the teachers would be more than happy to help them.

I think they have a tutor with them. If that's true, that means the kids are doing school lessons AND all this other work. The vacation of their dreams no doubt.

Mamma said...

I hope it's true about Jon. He has my full support.

Mom In Lancaster County said...

"Her boys will be the only ones graduating with full beards."

888888888888888888888

Somehow I don't think Hannah, Alexis and Leah have any desire to graduate with full beards!

I know what you mean, but there are many kids who graduate at age 18, and since they will be 19 for only 10 days at graduation, it's really a non-issue (and there have been boys sporting beards in the senior class -- it's really not uncommon). But, if they have to repeat Kindergarten, they may be married by the time they graduate from high school. Let's hope the school (the one that doesn't know how to help them) gets them on track and all goes well for them.

"We have always known that she was aware and putting on a poser face for every single pic these past several years."

8888888888888888888

Was that a poser face when the was photographed running near her home (the saggy jowls, cellulite pics)? Sad, if that's the best poser face she could manage. She looked like something the cat dragged in.

Meanwhile, the kids are missing days at school

&&&&&&&&&&&

Unless she has no intention of sending them back to school.

Either way, she could care less how much the children struggle academically. It's not HER problem. Her problem is getting to the next tanning session.

Administrator said...

I think their little private school which was once such a must have for Kate the rich people poser, is now on its way to Kate Gosselin's black hole of never to have contact with the kids ever again, along with Aunt Jodi, Uncle Kevin, the grandparents, Beth, Jon (well, one foot in the door anyway), the ten nannies, and so on and so on.

Administrator said...

Did anyone watch the Real Housewives tonight? Adrienne Maloof and her husband own the Kings and the Palms casinos. I didn't even know she HAD kids. Because she doesn't ever show them like the others do. They are 7, and four-year-old twins. They finally showed two of them going in to visit their Dad in the office. The segment was only 30 seconds long, it was mostly filmed showing the children's BACKS, not their faces, and when they did show their faces they were wearing doctors masks. Basically you will enver recognize them. I thought that was clever. Enough to say here's the kids, but not enough to invade their privacy whatsoever.

If you want to be on a reality show go for it, but let your kids maintain their privacy. A 7 year old and 4 year old cannot possible consent. The Moloffs get that. They made a decision in their BEST INTEREST. I think it's about damn time a parent on reality TV GOT IT.

Her Name Is Katie, She Is A Grifter said...

I wonder how many times Kate will require the kids to tell her "thank you" for the trip that TLC paid for.


It would haunt me if I had a reality show and all I did was mooch and grub for freebies, and rub fancy trips in people's noses. I just couldn't so it. If I were her and TLC was paying me to go on a lavish trip to Australia
( or anywhere ), I would INSIST on bringing along someone deserving of such a trip, like, someone who had just been through a very hard time or someone who was a hero. I just couldn't do it if it were always about me me me and only me me me. I'd be embarrassed for being so greedy and selfish.

Kate has it in her mind that America and the rest of the world should be happy and thrilled to watch HER eight kids be lavished with luxuries. They're cute, but seriously, what is more special about them than any other kid? Why are they more deserving?

It was endearing at first. Maybe the first 3 trips/excursions in seasons 1 and 2. Now it is shear nauseating. The gluttony and entitlement knows no bounds.

Administrator said...

Her Name Is Katie, I also think most people would feel they were showing off by constantly talking, sharing video and pics from expensive trips all over the place, and calling attention to it at school by pulling kids out (you know everyone will ask you WHY, then you get to talk about your amazing trip.).

I have a friend whose parents are in the art business and millionaires. He lives so modestly so you would never know, but he always goes abroad each Christmas with his mom and her sister's family. Usually they go to Europe they have a house there, but they've also gone to Costa Rica and Tihiti and Jamaica. Last Christmas was a cruise on some new ships' maiden voyage. Anyway I always have to ask my friend about the trips, what he did. He's shy about it. He's embarrassed. He doesn't want others to feel bad, he doesn't want to be seen as bragging. It's not false modestly, he's a nice guy and doesn't want anyone to feel left out. It's his family and it's what they like to do over the holidays and he wants to be with them. But I get the sense he would be just as happy here at home.

I think he's very considerate, and normal. Imagine how moritifying it would be for some children to constantly have their trips bragged about on TV to millions. You can be blessed and appreciate what you have without shoving it down everyone's throats--look at me, look at me. And in this economy, it's even more brazen to do this.

It may be school policy, and they don't HAVE to give them any help, but that doesn't mean that they won't. It's up to them.

Australia is on my list, but I cannot imagine having to do math problems and spelling when I get back to the hotel while I'm trying to enjoy a trip of a lifetime.

Spent 4 years there Admin, am not a huge fan I prefer America. I think it was probably because I was British. Was too much like going back in time for me. They love Americans so you would enjoy it.(assuming you are) I agree about the Math in the hotel lol Math anywhere for me is an anathema.

Kover Up, Kate! said...

Has anyone seen the photo of Kate in the bikini top with khaki shorts, shopping in the candy store with the kids? Does she think she's eye candy? It's in the current issue of US -- Preesi has a scan up. Oh, my gosh. What is she thinking? I thought the little halter tops, short skirts and hooker heels were bad, but this is just so bizarre, and so wrong on so many levels.

What is she trying to prove? Who is she trying to attract? More importantly, what kind of message does this send to her kids, especially the twins? This must be embarrassing for them. It has to be. Men must be gawking at her. Yes, the kids have beach towels and are wearing swim suits, but good gosh, lady, ever hear of a cover-up?

I'm wondering, quite honestly, if she's really "all there." No mom parades her implants around like that without an ulterior motive.

I'm surprised she hasn't had that belly button lowered yet! (snark...)

Oh for the love of gawd! What on earth is she thinking?

That is just completely innapropriate on every level for a 35 year old mother of eight young children. Her nipple is about to fall out!

I bet she walks around naked in front of her children at home. She is so proud of those boobies.

Only teens and young twenty somethings on spring break in Daytona or Cabo would walk around like that.

I remember when J & K were fresh off the divorce, I read somewhere that Kate had been offered to pose for Playboy magazine and she refused. I honestly wonder, if she were asked again, if she'd jump at the chance.

From what I've read, Hugh Hefner denied that and stated that he didn't want Kate in his magazine.

She could pose for waistless wenches said...

Smiley, the playboy offer was complete fabrication on Kate's part. She let it slip on the View that she was never asked to pose for Playboy. However, when the bullshit story leaked out a few weeks before the View, kate's PR people were quoted as saying that Kate received the offer from Playboy, scoffed at it Nd threw it in the trash. Dumb bitch can't even keep her lies straight. Why would her pr people say she threw away the letter if she was never approached by playboy in the first place? Plus, it is laughable to think that Kate thinks anyone would believe she is playboy material in the first place. And hef has gone on record saying that he is not interested. Bwahaha. But to answer your question, yes, Kate would LOVE to pose for playboy, but probably wouldn't because 1. No one would ask her and 2. TLC wouldn't let her. The kids would not lay into her decision making

Actually, Adrienne and her brothers Joe, George, Gavin, & Phil own their businesses. Her husband Paul is a cosmetic surgeon, and they keep their finances separate.

And I agree, she keeps her kids protected for the most part.

Administrator said...

We do know that Kate talks to Steve about divorce matters. In Kate's World they were in the limo in New York when she was upset because Jon was taking her back to court (oh the irony, she's not even in the same state as her kids when Jon is suing her over custody). This was when Jon wanted to see the kids when they were with nannies, how dare he. Steve listened to her and it's obvious she confides him in. But to be fair Steve actually kind of said this is on you, I can't do it for you. He sort of had an air about him like don't look at ME babe YOU got yourself in this mess not me.

It was at that moment I knew they weren't a couple at all.

Not on the list said...

Sorry, this is OT but I'm watching Jimmy Fallon; Donald Trump is his guest tonite. Donald announced this season's celebrity apprentices and guess who was NOT on the list? Sorry Kate, you were not on the list.

Admin, I found that limo ride interesting also. And I agree that Steve does not appear to be in love with Kate or emotionally caught up in her self-created drama. He offered practical advice: get some sleep, cancel your dance rehearsal, etc. But he did seem irritated by her histrionics, even though he was polite and nice to her. It seemed like he listens to a lot of complaining, whining, and boohooing from her. But what really made me go Hmmmm was how absolutely out of it she was. She said she was exhausted because she stayed up all night, but damn, the woman could not even keep her eyes open. Steve said several times, "Listen, I need you to stay awake long enough to answer whether or bit you're going to dance practice." I've pulled many all-nighters studying, taking care of sick kids, with insomnia, etc. And sure I'm tired the next day. But so tired that i'd be slumped over with my eyes closed while being filmed for tv? Never. I'll bet Kate really was upset with the prospect of losing complete control of her little dollar signs and Steve gave her something to calm her down. And maybe it calmed down a bit too much. It has been said that TLC pulls all kinds of strings to keep her calm/sand enough to film. I think Steve may have the keys to the TLC medicine cabinet. Wonder if he feels the need to take something to calm down too, having to deal with that piece of work

aussie-yob said...

Maybe this has already been discussed, but
aren't those the heads of two of the
Gosselin children in the mid-foreground
of the photo of Kate and Steve allegedly
dining alone at a `swanky' restaurant in
Rotorua?

From their startled expressions you'd think
the bodyguard and his dressed-up charge were
indeed sneaking away for an adults-only
dinner. But could it be, given the chair-backs
and the other heads in view, maybe the kids
were at the same table, or the next table or nearby?

Linda in NS said...

I agree with Admin and She Can Pose: I don't think Steve and Kate are a couple. I think Steve is Kate's babysitter; god knows she is extremely childish and throws tantrums frequently. The eight little ones don't require a sitter but that one big'un sure does and Stevie boy is it.

Hippie Chick said...

I'm not usually one to ask to or click, but where exactly is this bikini pic of Kate "running errands". Did I miss it? Do I want to miss it?

K8SUCKS said...

Admin, I love hearing stories like yours about those who are truly wealthy but are very humble about it.

A very long time ago I worked at a bank in Boston - one of my coworkers was the grandson of John Deere. He was the nicest guy and a hard worker too. Another coworker was the son of the man that started the Vanguard Fund. Yes, blue blood, old family money, and they both were humble, a bit shy and great guys.

Money doesn't change people, it just magnifies the personality traits that were already there.
I imagine Katie Irene has been a selfish ingrate her entire life - oh those poor kids.

Anonymous said...

Kate Gosselin, you are in over your head. You are not going to loose it all, they are going to take it right out from under you. You may be getting snowed woman. All of them only have a financial investment interest in you, and in your children. Nothing more. You are acting and looking like BS before her dad took over as a conservator. It is already falling apart. They must hate you to let you fall so hard so quick. You are a Mother of 8 little children. Cover your nasty old ass up. Showing your nipple is disgusting. WTF is wrong with you? What are you on? That half naked porn pose for children and mom's who watch the show is wrong TLC. The Losers Channel. No wonder other families are pulling out. Disgusting the way Figure 8 and TLC act and film around these 8 children. The New Porn Channel for children. Have the advertisers and sponsors all gone crazy? Gawd...................

Yep. And you were right on about her not being embarrassed about being "gifted" these lavish trips, other feeebies, etc. She thinks she deserves all of these things, because why? She popped out 6 kids at once. Um, so what? She sought out for that for one purpose & one purpose only. The freebies & goodies. She never intended, IMO, to mother those kids like any normal mother. She wanted the fame thing, the TV career & the free trips. She SHOULD be embarrassed for the crap she is pulling, when there are military families who are sending their kids to war everyday, or struggling families trying to put food on the table, or small business owners trying to get a start (me), or single mothers who work 2 or 3 jobs just to provide food & clothes & a roof over their childrens head because the father is doing nothing. Kate does NOT think about those people out there. She lives in a bubble. A stupid Kate-centric bubble with thoughts like; "I need a tan" "I need a mani/pedi" "We need to film so I can have more money" "I don't care if my kids are tired" "ME ME ME ME ME ME ME" The house of cards will collapse & she WILL be one of those "regular" people, but Kate will still be bitching & complaining, about HER needs only.

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

In reference to that US Weekly scan-

Someone at Preesi's website made an excellent point: -

Her exhibitionist style of dressing in front of a married man AND and her TLC male crew (what do you think their wives, if married, think of this bitch?) needs to be brought to the judge's attention.

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

I agree.

She's also very tacky. Women much younger than Kate, with better looking, gorgeous bodies, do not enter shops dressed like that. At the very least, she could have thrown a t-shirt on...

But we keep forgetting, Kate is hunting for a man.

Anyone else finds it creepy that Steve is behind these so-called "sexy" photos? Was he hired as her pimp, as well?

Virginia Pen Mom said...

Sorry if this has already been posted, but the Life & Style article on Kate was awesome--so great to see some of the media tell it like it is. Starting with the headline: KATE DRAGS HER KIDS ON A 26-HOUR FLIGHT" Subheaders: "A Grueling Schedule" and "Their Lost Childhood".

sorry to post again...found the bikini photo with the khaki shorts. I typically only make fun of the clothes Kate wears as I fashion myself to be quite the...fashionista. But how in the HELL can she deny a boob job?? And OK, I have walked around with a bikini top & shorts before, no biggie, but nothing that skimpy (usually a halter). At least her shorts weren't super short, the whole thing looks...ridiculous. If she's going to go skanky on top, then don't go all 'mom' on the bottom. She should have gone 'mom' on top as well, especially with little girls walking by her side. (jean shorts & a nice halter bikini top to cover the girls would have been better) JMO!!

That limo ride was being filmed, don't forget that. Drama added...the whole thing appeared scripted to me. But all in all it was being FILMED. I believe nothing anymore from that entire camp.

Midwestern grandma said...

Kate is going to be her own undoing. These attention grabbing antics are a real turnoff to anyone with an ounce of class. It reeks of desperation, doesn't it? Leave something to the imagination, Kate, and the attention you get might mean something. She has made a giant leap from little Christian girl from the country to big girl who likes to expose her private parts, hasn't she? Really icky. No wonder the friends evaporate. It would be embarrassing to be around her very much.

AuntieAnn said...

I think Kate and Steve are involved. It might have started out as a business relationship, but he's been on the job (ha!) so long I think he could be in love with her. It's not an impossibility. Or maybe she's grown on him...like a barnacle.
I could be wrong but it's just that we don't see her with anyone else and Gina is not around.

Administrator said...

I think what Kate is doing is having an affair with Steve in her head. I think she is pretending. And I think Steve finds this flattering and certainly isn't leaving this job anytime soon. I think this is almost as bad, if not just bad, as actually cheating on someone. See I don't think you have to be having sex with someone to be having an affair.

I have seen someone's marriage nearly destroyed over the APPEARANCE of an affair.

I LOVE that site! (PeopleofWalmart) I go there for a good chuckle. And yes, Kate looks likes she would fit right in. Survived the storm fine. We hunkered down for the day. I made my husband stay home (didn't want him driving! lol) and thank God for snow blowers! We played Jeopardy on the Wii & played in the snow. How about you? I hope you didn't have to drive. It was beautiful to look at though...

Yeah, what took them so long? It's strange these magazines are just now deciding to get wise to Kate. A year ago a lot of them were still busy kissing Kate's butt and talking about what a strong, hard working mother she was....blah blah blah. Now they're starting to attack her as voraciously as they romanced her. Karma kicking in?

sftk said...

I am sure the kids will be back in school next week until the next shoot-oops I mean break. Kate can't be bothered checking out new schools, making new routines etc. unless she hires someone to do it or someone pays her to do it. I also hope Jon would have a say in the education choices for his kids. Since Monday is MLK holiday the kids will have an additional day to recover but I hope Jon does not have to wait too long to see and spend time with them after this long absence. It would break my heart not seeing my kids for such a long time and since Jon is not physically working away, or in the military, there is no need for this.
I also agree with admins. about the "affair" being in Kate's mind only. It would take a real dummy to fall for her if he spent any time around her. She has a bimbo appeal and no real man would saddle himself with the likes of her. Of course that is assuming Steve-"jump when I tell you to" bodyguard has any common sense and wants to be taken seriously in the business world after this travesty is over.
I again wonder how his wife can deal with this?
Since he spends so much time with Kate, Gina has to be the parent dealing with the day to day jobs. I would be resentful if my husband spent as much time with another family instead of ours, no matter how much money he makes. I also wonder how his sons feel if their friends make remarks about Kate and her dress or lack of dress choices. Boys are visual, esp. teen and with the internet and rags, Kate and her "plastastic" body are plastered all over. It would really creep me out to have my sons think of Kate as a sex object!

This photo of them is so creepy, so clandestine. They are down there for a reason.
Hands covering their mouths. They are up to something. Chilling.
I seem to remember something about the settlement of Jon/Kate that somehow Steve was in charge of the children’s money, perhaps as an administrator of their trust? I remember thinking at the time, how is this possible? Would Jon approve something like this, to a man who lives in his basements and travels the country with his wife on book tours?
In a scene from the family flight from hell when Kate is freaking out, Jon is seated across from her; Steve is a couple rows in back of Kate, alone. His eyes bored into the back of Jon’s head. Like Jon was under custody or something. Not like Jon was the father and in charge of this family. NO, Steve was there as guardian against HIM!!! Bizarre. It gave me shivers up my spine when I saw his eyes. I thought what the f is going on here?
Who is this guy? How does he get all this power over this family? Where did he come from?
He’s in so deep. International companion, babysitter, purse holder, all around troubleshooter, peacekeeper, father figure, tour guide, picture deleter, organizer, bodyguard, breast enhancement adviser, dresser, stylist, media adviser, on and on and on……….and now if true,
HE’S ALSO IN CHARGE OF THE KIDS MONEY????????
Perhaps these two are cooking up some post TLC life down under, exploring their options. Creating a buzz as evidence of all these orchestrated scenes they’ve been creating.
Maybe someone else will remember if this settlement agreement is true. And we can get to the bottom of this arrangement. If it is true, this would shed a whole new light on what is up with this dangerous duo. Cause something just doesn’t sit right with this whole thing. Did Jon even have a friggin lawyer? I mean come on…………….geeeze. Is he out of his mind to sign over your children’s rights? Future? Present? Happiness? Life? Was he forced to sign? Or complicit?
The whole thing is crazy, scary, and creepy. My heart goes out to those brave children. Stick together kids, always.

I saw the pictures you are all mentioning and I did not see any nipple falling out. Why do you make things up and why does the Admin print it without checking it out first? This is a disservice to the readers.

Kartie Dearest the Tree said...

This woman is way too obsessed with her flaunting her tree-limb body. I'm so embarassed for the kids especially Cara/Maddie who will soon be teens.

If the kids are fully clothed in the store.....why can't she be? Aaaah... because she'd be covering up her new friends, I mean new bra.

Linda But Not That One said...

I also have never believed Kate and Steve are an item. They are in Kate's head. And she probably LOVES the speculation. But he is a very highly paid adult babysitter. A handler. And once TLC let's her go, he goes, too. He's laughing all the way to the bank (though to be completely realistic, she probably drives him batshit crazy, too).

Linda But Not That One said...

On that preesi forum, I found this:

http://preesi.lefora.com/2009/05/23/characteristics-of-narcissistic-mothers/

It's a very detailed description of the characteristics of narcissistic mothers. Not only does it describe Kate to a tee, it gave me all over chills remding me of my own mother. I haven't had anything to do with her in 12 years now, thank goodness, so nothing other than chills. But yes, yes, yes and YES, every one of those things applied to her, plus some other unsavory stuff from her Borderline Personality Disorder (oh she's a treat, she is).

Anyway, I thought it would be very eye-opening for anyone to read. Specifically a while back we were all talking here about how Kate seems to actually be happy when her kids are upset or sad and she's not happy when they're happy and the description of being an "emotional vampire" in that article fits perfectly. Gah. If anyone had any SLIVER of a doubt that Kate Gosselin has a serious personality disorder, read that, think about just what you've seen, and remove all doubt.

Bosom Buddy said...

She should have gone 'mom' on top as well, especially with little girls walking by her side. (jean shorts & a nice halter bikini top to cover the girls would have been better) JMO!!

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

It's clear they were either coming back from the pool or going to the pool because the kids have towels and are wearing swim suits. So, she just slipped shorts on over top of her bikini, but didn't bother wearing a tee shirt or blouse over her top. How tacky is that? The kids are covered, but not Kate.
I was looking at the photo and thinking the same thing about the boobs. I remember when she went to the tummy doctor and asked him do do something about her saggy breasts. During the consultation, she stood (in gown) with her back facing the camera. He was checking out her breasts, and clearly agreed that they went south (heck, he was even looking DOWN at them). No more looking DOWN, they are right up there, poised and ready for action.
Isn't it a miracle what a good bra can do, especially when you've left it at home?

I LOVE that site! (PeopleofWalmart) I go there for a good chuckle. And yes, Kate looks likes she would fit right in. Survived the storm fine. We hunkered down for the day. I made my husband stay home (didn't want him driving! lol) and thank God for snow blowers! We played Jeopardy on the Wii & played in the snow. How about you? I hope you didn't have to drive. It was beautiful to look at though...

____________________________________

I had to work so I was out in the storm. Fortunately we have 4wd and studded snow tires so it wasn't too bad. Would have prefered to stay home though LOL.

I am surprised we haven't seen pics of Kate dressing like that for a trip to Target or UPS, in the winter!

If I had a figure like hers, sure I would be proud of it (if I worked at it, not paid for it like she did), but she's not 22 years old anymore and she really shouldn't flaunt it the way has. It seems like this trip she has really been flaunting like crazy. Maybe she's depserate to stay relevent.

It's at Pressi's in this week's US Weekly scan that she didn't think important ...

Tucker's Mom said...

Re: Kate's dressing. Another example of just how unaware of herself she is. It really bothered me when Jon felt like a cuckold (doesn't matter if it was true, it LOOKED like an affair), and Kate kept Steve on and turned up the volume.
She is also disrespectful to Steve's wife. Who dresses like a tramp, tits hanging out and all, around married men? I'd wear a cover up if I were going away from a pool or beach. And at her age, she dresses so inappropriately. Her older girls are going to start to cringe, if they aren't already.
As to Steve and Kate together, I've thought that for a long time. Channeling Dr. Glass, just look at their body language. Totally mirroring.
I know I've said it before, but I really do feel for Jon. He sits in PA while Steve is fathering his children most of the time, all over the country and world.
I wonder when the kids are expected back at school. Tuesday? Ugh, the jet lag. I remember feeling the effects for days, just coming back to the east coast from the west.
BTW, if you haven't listened to Nina Frye's radio show yesterday, give it a listen. Werny Gal and Paul Peterson made excellent points. After listening to Peterson, I could feel my BP rise! He's been onto the staging of the show, and the working children since the beginning. He feels that the children have been aware of the cameras from the get-go, and he saw their behavior change almost immediately.

My guess is Admin has a life and does not spend the entire day moderating this blog lol

On a different note,thank you admin because you didn't let your blog be "boars on boards" like the blog of the sheeple leader is right now(seriously they trolled all the "hate" sites and they posted some of our comments and are now ripping them apartt LOL)

Also,I think this is finally working.I do not believe it is a coincidence that 2 days after we discussed the school policy a publication quotes it so good job with this blog,it is raising awarenes.

Last but not least the fans often ask us: Do you think the Gosselin kids will thank you for blogging about their issues and for your "so called concern"? Here's my question: Do YOU think they will thank you for your creepy "fan" videos which include them two by two(the tups) on songs such as "Love Story" by Taylor Swift or all of the tups on "Big Girl Now" by Lady Gaga or one of the girs on "Sexy Bitch" bu Akon( I think) or do you think they'll see you as creeps who envisioned siblings as bf,gf and will wish those videos would go away along with the potty,bet time and vomit footage?

Go Away Kate said...

Tune into Oprah today. Suze Orman's raking octomom over the coals about her finanacial situation. They are calling it an "intervention".

I wonder how much of her advice would pertain to Kart also.

I just don't understand how the media doesnt see the commonalities between these two women.

If TLC would have wrapped octomom with a big red bow like they did Kart, really, what are the differences?

The hypocracy is ridiculous!!!!! After the birth of octomom's children and the media caught wind that this was an unemployed, plastic surgery loving, lying, unstable woman, what do they do. . . . bring in Kate to comment. REALLY???

Nina's admitting that she never watched the shows from the very beginning, but she jumps on the Kart coo-coo train. The media embraced this woman and all along, and from the very very beginning, a lot of us saw Kart for what she really was. I saw is in the very first "special", before the show even got picked up. I would love to hear Dr. Glass' impressions of Kart even in that episode. Her aggressively swinging her leg when she and Jon were being interviewed. Jon's obvious uncomfortableness. Reeks of someone afraid they are going to say the wrong thing. Im sure she warned him. Even in that episode, Jon has always been the primary caregiver and soft spot for those children.

You could go through EVERY SINGLE episode (what. . over 120 by now?) and see Kart's belittling, aggression, sense of entitlement, and yes, her ambition. Her ambition to "have it all". . . in spite of her husband, children, her morals, and her credibility.

Do the math. . . how many episodes do these children have to do to make the money she makes off one episode? Oh thats right. . . she wasnt saving money for the children or even paying them until the divorce came around? 116 episodes into it? So they have done how many episodes since the divorce? 15% of 250,000 divided by 8.

She can show up for one episode, ACT like a mother (which she never seems to pull off) and make more than each one of the children make after they pull off over 40 episodes.

Mortgage on the first house, mortgage on the second house, didn't pay for the van, free clothes for the kids, free food (what "normal" mom drives 45 minutes to grocery shop), all expense paid trips and activities through TLC, lien put on the house over a water bill.

The lies, the lies, and then more. . . lies!

Nadia is Octomom #2.

They were photographed in the restaurant Wednesday night. The magazine hit the newsstands Thursday and it needed to be okayed by staff and printed and delivered before that. They jumped the gun a bit by writing the article early. lol

In the photo above, the questions occurs to me 'does this person look happy, content, at peace with life'? Of course she doesn't. She looks utterly bored and miserable. And to answer the fans, no I don't expect her to smile all day long. But she is out to dinner with her boyfriend, at a top notch restaurant, with the kids she claims to love sooooooooo much and she still manages to look completely miserable. I haven't seen happy on her face in a very long time.

Oh Dear Gawd...and then in the next breath, Suzie calls it "exploiting" the children.
I reminds me of all the crazies who STILL think Kate's just "gotta" support 8 kids, Oh my, how ever will she do it without putting her kids on TV?

I agree that one of the nice things about this blog is there is no board on board. However, we are being told now out there in blogland at one particular fan site that what Steve said about protecting Kate from 'the overzealous fans' was not what he actually meant. Instead, what he 'meant' was that Steve was 'protecting' Kate from the Kate haterz and she was being spared knowing about us. Huh? Does that make any sense to anyone else? I'm sorry, but I saw him speak the words 'overzealous fans' not haterz or anything about non fans, but OVERZEALOUS fans. There is only one meaning to that. It really gives new meaning to delusional fans. You can't change what he said by trying to change the meaning on your fan site. Sheesh.

Linda the Good said...

http://tv.gawker.com/5734067/heres-the-best-moment-from-oprah-and-suze-ormans-octomom-intervention

So Oprah did a big takedown of octomom today. I just kept thinking "can she please do this with Hate?"

Administrator said...

Overzealous fans clearly referred to just that, FANS. If they would actually look at the overall context of the conversation, Steve said sometimes overzealous fans are a problem as much as people who don't like Kate. So he was juxtiposing fans vs. haters. Clearly, overzealous referred to FANS and fans alone.

Also in her child exploitation book "I Just Want...", Kate said "fans" are "annoying." That really can't be interpreted any other way than fans are annoying. Ouch.

Frankly I think it's rude to talk about fans or non-fans that way. Overzealous fans and overzealous non-fans are a private security issue and to talk about them negatively just makes you look like you don't appreciate or recognize the 99% of other people who behave appropriately. You've just sort of lumped a bunch of people into the crazy pile and moved on. Very rude.

Even Joan Crawford understood: LOVE YOUR FANS.

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

Hehehehe, it's just spin.

I agree, if Steve's exact words were OVERZEALOUS "FANS", then that means you have to be a "fan" first ;o)

Sadly, Kate wants nothing to do with her overzealous "fans". Shame, really- because the only people left on earth that are still loyal to her, willing to believe every word she says, and will defend her to the ends of the earth, are her overzealous "fans".

Bless their hearts.

For their convenience, here is a word breakdown-

*Overzealous:
marked by excessive enthusiasm for and intense devotion to a cause or idea; rabid,
showing too much energy or enthusiasm, fanatical, obsessed

For example: An overzealous fan ran onto the stage during the concert.

*Fan:
A fan, sometimes also called aficionado or supporter, is a person with a liking and enthusiasm for something. Fans of a particular thing or person constitute its fanbase or fandom. They may show their enthusiasm by being a member of a fan club, holding fan conventions, creating fanzines, writing fan mail, or by promoting the object of their interest and attention.

Sorry, Kate's "FANS"- but he was talking about you.

Go Away Kate said...

Orman told her to can the nannies. Told her that everybody hates her already. They just want her at home "being a mom."

When does the "we are broke. . can't pay the bill, blah blah blah" cross the line into now we are multi-millionaires in a reality show jetting around the world?" But still lying about being broke.

Is Jon allowed to go on Oprah and talk about his life? Talk about his very own life and his very own children? Is he allowed to express his concerns about their well-being and his opinions on how they are being raised and cared for and by whom that care is coming from? Is he allowed to state care-free daddy stories?

Not unless TLC, Kate, Steve, her attornies, her "people" allow him to.

The camera and TLC has been Karts affair from the very beginning. The mistress in the marriage.

Really, Oprah/Suze?! That's all the advice you could give Nadya said...

So Oprah did a big takedown of octomom today. I just kept thinking "can she please do this with Hate?
-----------

Suze Orman's job advice for Nadya, to help support her children, was to get an agent who can help her sell a book and/or get a "docu-series" reality show, nothing about getting a real job even though Nadya does have a bachelor's degree. Unfortunately, hearing this advice, I could see Suze Orman taking Kate's side about having a reality show to support her family.

Even though Nadya has been adamant about not wanting to exploit her children, I feel Nadya (as desperate and vulnerable as she is, something's off about her) will reconsider Suze's advice and do a reality show.

Nadya fits right in with TLC's current reality shows. Will Oprah make a call to TLC?

Kartie Dearest said...

Do the fans know that Kart doesn't like people in general (including the fans) unless money is involved.

Even when she did DWTS, the rule was no one was allowed to speak to her including the "real" stars. I wish I had the clip where Erin Andrews approaches a sourpuss looking Kate. She rarely tried to reach out to her "fans" for their votes. The only thing she conveyed was that she dances like a mummy.

Not All That and a Bag of Chips said...

two performers stand out in my opinion -- Sammy Davis, Jr. and Charo. I saw them perform at the Valley Forge Music Fair. Aside from tremendous shows, they thanked their Fans. Remarking that w/o them they wouldn't exist.



There are many real celebrities and even younger up-and-coming musicians/performers who genuinely thank their fans for allowing them to continue to do what they enjoy doing or for making their dream job come true.

Kate has this air about her now as if she's too good for her fans/non-fans that we should be placing her on some golden pedestal. Even in her show, she acts like she's all that and a bag of chips with the people she interacts with.

Another reason the original Twist of Kate idea would never work. Kate doesn't like associating with the mere common folk. Instead, she'd find a way to insult them whether it's to their face or behind their backs. The Palin family, especially Piper (since she's not famous like her mother), is a good example of this.

Administrator said...

Suze Orman has no credibility anyway, she changes her financial advice on the whims of the market, if anyone follows her advice for 10 years they'll be in financial ruin. This is a great article about why Suze's ridiculous advice to just pay minimums on credit cards is so terrible: http://articles.moneycentral.msn.com/Banking/CreditCardSmarts/why-suze-orman-is-wrong-again.aspx

Now she advises Octomom to do a reality show? Typical. Why is the media so desperate to do an Octomom intervention, but not Kate, who is in almost identical circumstances?

Heck as far as I know no one knows her children's names, or faces. That right there puts her a notch above Kate.

Administrator said...

I don't think everyone "hates" Octomom. I think people thought she was a little pathetic but then they moved on. I am not defending Octomom but I don't see what she has done that is so f-ing terrible. So she's in bad financial straights, so are many people. So she had too many kids, so did half of L.A. She is not really exploiting them to try to crawl out of this mess--either that's because CA law won't let her or she chose not to, but the bottom line is her kids still have their privacy and dignity. It's really the media that won't move on from her. No one twisted Oprah's arm to invite her on the show.

Kartie Dearest said...

One more thing, I gather TLC will be announcing upcoming specials this spring for the 3 episodes

episode 1 - philly
episode 2 - Australia
episode 3 - New Zealand

I won't be watching - rather watch dust collect on my shelf.

And then as far as filming more shows - will Kart be using their spring break for yet another working vacation? Seems obvious huh.

OR is there hope that somehow, Jon will press further to stop filming alltogether?

One can only hope that this is the year the House of Kart crumbles.

Administrator said...

Ehh, straits!

BeDoneNow said...

@ Really, Oprah/Suze?!

Sorry, Octomom does not have a Bachelor's Degree. She has a 2 year Associate's Degree as a Mental Health Technician. This could provide her with a job that pays a small bit above minimum wage.

Not related to your post - but I think the reason most folks turned their nose up at Octomom is that many assumed she deliberatly had the babies to cash in on the Gosselin wave of freebies and lots-o-cash.

Administrator said...

When people say "hating" on Kate doesn't help, Octomom is a perfect example of how we will never really know how much calling Kate on her crap actually has helped wiht FUTURE families.

I think the multiples craze, using your kids for money craze, grifter craze, with Kate at the healm, played a big role in the public's extreme negative reaction to Octomom. Even if she WANTED to be like Kate it wasn't going to happen, public opinion was far too negative. We'll never really be able to measure how the public's experience with Kate and other reality stars has prevented it from happening to other families. There is just no denying that America was "multipled out" by the time Octomom tried her hand at it.

A resounding AMEN! I could write a dissertation on some of the "advice" she has given that causes financial consultants to shake their heads in disbelief. In addition, she's all about money, money, money, and it doesn't surprise me in the least that she would tell Octo to find an agent or reality show because the end (MONEY) would justify the means (exploiting children). It doesn't matter HOW you get it, but THAT you get it.

Remember when Dr. Phil had Kate on, tsk tsking Octomom, like she is some paragon of maternal virtue. I believed Octomom when she insisted that NO, she really wants out of the public eye, never expected the attention, hates what this has done to her, and just wants a regular life.
Regular life and being a reality tv star are incompatible.

Interesting Reading on Contempt of Custody that JON filed on 1/6/111

Enforcement and Contempt of Pennsylvania custody orders

In Pennsylvania, if either parent fails to comply with a custody order, a request for a hearing on the issue of contempt must be presented and a hearing must be conducted by a judge to determine if the person has violated the order of court. If a person willfully disobeys a Pennsylvania custody order, the judge could find that person to be found in contempt of the court order and sanctions could be imposed.

Sanctions for disobeying a Pennsylvania custody order could include imprisonment, assessment of attorney fees, or transfer custody to the noncustodial parent if the custodial parent continually violates a custody order. If the noncustodial parent violates the order, the judge could modify and reduce or otherwise change the noncustodial parent's custody rights. Furthermore, Pennsylvania and all other states have adopted some version of the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Act (UCCJA), which provides that courts will recognize and enforce custody orders entered in other states so as to prevent child abductions or parental kidnapping.

Moving to another county or state without advance notice to the non-custodial parent and an order of court permitting the relocation is frowned upon by the courts and could result in severe repercussions, including loss of custody rights.


I am betting Kate is home already if not on her way home with the kiddos (according to the tweet by the airport) This could get messy, but I'm glad Jon has finally grown another pair! ! !

Thank you to Preesi for posting the Contempt Docket.

Goes to show how Kate's world is an ugly weave of lies, curruption and deception.

Good for Jon!!

Warmth Of The Sun said...

Was there a contempt doc published? What I read was a summary of proceedings going back last April, with the last entry showing that he filed a contempt complaint on 1/6. Is the actual contempt document published anywhere, or am I missing something?

Did TMZ issue a correction or retraction to their claim that it was Kate who filed the contempt charge? Oops...dumb question, I guess. Do they ever correct anything?

LisaNH said...

Not All That and a Bag of Chips said... two performers stand out in my opinion -- Sammy Davis, Jr. and Charo. I saw them perform at the Valley Forge Music Fair. Aside from tremendous shows, they thanked their Fans. Remarking that w/o them they wouldn't exist.



There are many real celebrities and even younger up-and-coming musicians/performers who genuinely thank their fans for allowing them to continue to do what they enjoy doing or for making their dream job come true.
______________________________________________

That is very true. I live in NH and I've heard a lot of great stories about Steven Tyler, (Aerosmith), who has a home here. He is very gracious with his fans, whether they see him at Walmart or D'Angelo's Sandwich shop. He's got a good rep in this area as far as approachability goes.

Another celeb I've heard who is very sweet and gracious with fans is Bret Michaels.

And yes, if it weren't for Kate's fans, she would not be where she is today (nor would she have the body, hair, nails, shoes, home etc....) if it weren't for the fans of her family. But she will never see it that way. She will always see it as she deserves it simply because she is Kate.

Insert Creative Username Here said...

@ Warmth of the Sun, The court records are sealed. So no, you cannot read the outcomes, etc..., but you can see who filed the petition. It clearly states that Jon filed the petition, and he filed first. If Kate has filed (we have no evidence of this) it was only after Jon filed.

This is great! I'm glad Jon's getting it together and has an excellent family law attorney! I am willing to bet he has way more evidence of her breaking the custody agreements (and gag orders) than she does of him.

@ Admin, do you know how far a gag order goes? Does it mean you are not allowed to talk to ANYONE about the case? Or you're not allowed to talk to the media? Because technically Jon has a protected twitter account...he did not go to the media when he tweeted the news about losing the fight to get the kids off of t.v.

boo said...

The PDF of the docket sheet posted on Preesi shows Mary Vidas as attorney for Jon. She's the real deal, so he seems to be in good hands. Let's hope he wins this round.

SmileyGrl752 said...

Suzie O. advocated that Octomom DO a reality show with her kids. Here's the thing, she's got OLDER kids. As if being the child of Octomom isn't enough of a burden.

Oh Dear Gawd...and then in the next breath, Suzie calls it "exploiting" the children.

_____________________

So which is it? Does Suze approve of mothers of multiples having reality shows, or does she think it's exploiting kids, too?

I believed Octomom when she insisted that NO, she really wants out of the public eye, never expected the attention,

______________________________

What did she expect? She has sextuplets, then octuplets, and never expected attention from it? She's more delusional than Kate.

readerlady said...

Nadya did not have "sextuplets then octuplets". She had 6 children of varying ages before she had the octuplets.

Suze Ormand has some pretty weird ideas.

Any word on when Kate and her entourage are due back in PA?

prairiemary said...

Just read that the kids were seen at the airport, but no mention of their loving mother with them, so she may have sent them back alone.

Donna said...

I have so many questions...
I keep reading about Kate and that people are not allowed to look at or speak to her when she's in a public place shopping, dining, etc. How exactly does that work? Does Steve go inside the establishment prior to Kate's arrival and make a public announcement stating that Her Highness has arrived and no one is to look at or speak to her? I'm really being serious here - who lets the general public know that they are not to acknowledge Kate's presence? Secondly, what is wrong with Kate that she would expect people to obey her requests? What would happen if someone DID look at or speak to her (such as, "Hey, bitch!")? Would Steve tackle them to the ground and pepper spray them? I've heard stories of a couple of other big-time movie stars who expected the same treatment, but I can't, for the life of me, understand why a person would want to live their life that way. Someone help me to understand this, please?

h8k8 said...

So which is it? Does Suze approve of mothers of multiples having reality shows, or does she think it's exploiting kids, too?

She's ok with both. Suze Orman told Nadya that she needs to do whatever it takes to support her kids even if it means exploiting them (and she used those words). So, Nadya took her advice and signed up with a management company and signed a contract to write a book. Oh, goodie!

A4Eliz said...

The G8 are in a candy store and they still don't look happy. I think Nadya Suleman is crazy and irresponsible but from what I've seen on TV she is affectionate and loving toward her children. They are out of control and facing serious issues but I would still rather be a kid in the octo-chaos.

Boston Bonnie said...

As much as I don't like what Nadaya did, having 8 kids when she already had 6 she couldn't afford I respected her for not putting her kids in the public eye.

I am so mad that both Suze Ormond and Oprah Winfrey would propose that she do a reality series and have to assume that NEITHER of them know or care to know about the damage being done to the G8.

It's worse than you think said...

Boston Bonnie said:

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

I wouldn't worry too much about Suleman doing a show. If you've ever seen her at length in interviews you'd realize that she is certifiably disturbed, illogical, self-centered and out-of-control in ways Kate, with her little Narcissistic problem, can't even touch.

Films of Suleman and her children are utterly chaotic, and the damage they've already suffered is, in my opinion, even worse than that the Gosselin kids are experiencing.

The violence Suleman's kids perpetrated upon each other in widely distributed videos was out-of-control - yes, much worse than the hitting, tackling and shoving of the Gosselin toddlers - and Suleman completely unable to even acknowledge it.

Suleman has at least one autistic child, and several, if I remember correctly, with learning disorders and other significant issues - among only the FIRST six children. I have no idea what problems the octuplets may have, but the list is likely to be long.

There is no way to make Suleman's brood appealing, and her "management company" will soon figure that out.

Unless they do a Suleman tabloid-style expose, there's nothing to film, and even that would just be a one-time wonder.

Suleman's big mistakes, from a PR standpoint, was acquiring all those children without benefit of marriage, income, occupation, or any appearance of a sense of responsibility. And she can't play the "Christian" card either.

The Gosselins worked all those points very effectively in the early years. And had cute babies. Suleman's children aren't photogenic, and they look terribly neglected. As painful as it is to KNOW about the abuse of the Gosselin kids, it's doubly so to SEE how poorly Suleman's kids are faring.

Suleman gets no credit from me for "loving" her children. She is an incredibly destructive force in their lives.

Anonymous said...

The morning drive radio show was talking about reality shows re babies/pregnancy, and how the tone has shifted from cautiuonery tale/what not to do to look at me!/I'm a star!

And a woman called in whose 15 yo old daughter had gotten pregnant ON PURPOSE because she wants to be on Teen Mom. The woman had her daughter when she was 20, is raising her as a single mom (unintended pregnancy/boyfriend disappeared) and had the talk with her at 12, put her on the pill at 14 so the daughter wouldn;t have the difficult life of raising a child as a young mom. This was not a girl who didn;t have the facts about safe sex. She voluntarily went off the pill, intentionally became pregnant and now thinks she should be a tv star at 15.

Admin, are you going to discuss other reality tv kid issues besides Kate Gosselin? This is a disturbing trend ALL AROUND.

And I guarantee Nadya will have a show on Oprah's network, It's just how Oprah rolls. She one of the biggest hypocrites I've ever seen.

heather

It's worse than you think said...

By the way, Suleman DID put her kids "in the public eye". She earned a bunch of money (all of which is apparently gone now) from a "documentary" shown in Europe. She gets NO points for that, or for splashing her personal business, and the kids' lives, all over TV whenever she needs the next attention fix.

Apparently no one was willing, or able, to market her in the USA.

If it were up to her, Suleman would be in the media all the time. It's the "ick factor" that's prevented this, not her good judgment.

Snow Globe said...

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

True. But isn't that what TLC wants...and other reality shows, for that matter? TLC is already a freak show. They don't care how unattractive Suleman's kids are; what kind of living conditions they have; how illogical, narcissistic there mother is. We've seen the driving factor behind TLC -- it doesn't matter if you love the family, hate the mother, or find their lives disturbing. The point is - THAT WE WATCH!

The Hayes family, with their brood, was a likeable bunch, for the most part. She was a SAHM, he was a cop. They were not polarizing. You see how that show ended.

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

I'm sorry. Although Nadia appears to be a nicer human being than Kate- she is not emotionally well.

She admitted in the interview, that she had children only to fill a void (due to her poor self exteem, and a poor relationship with her mother?). Not only is that wrong, but now those
14 innocent lives are going to carrying the brunt of their mother's illness. Plus she had those children knowing full well that she could not provide for them. That doesn't sound stable, and her doctor was just as irresponsible for assisting her in having more children.

It's a very sad situation.
Pray for her children.

She deserves a teeny little bit of credit said...

Nadya said at the end of the interview that “being a breeder does not warrant celebrity status” and that she doesn’t want to be a star because she’s just a breeder. I was impressed by this statement and hope she meant that.

Margaret K said...

Admin - Did you verify that Jon is actually the plaintiff in the contempt charge? How would you be able to verify that, just out of curiosity? Did you get info from the Berks County court house?

No She Doesn't said...

No, she doesn't deserve any credit for this. She was on TV ONLY because she's a "breeder".

The only reason ANYONE pays any attention to this poor, sick woman is BECAUSE she's a breeder. Exactly how else would she become a "star"?

Also, if you follow her interviews at all, you will notice that anyone can get Nadya Suleman to say anything at all. She is extremely distractable and easy to manipulate.

Nothing she says has any meaning if by "meaning" you mean it's an indication of purpose, sincerity, motivation, or thought.

Kathy said...

If Oprah and Suze told Octomom to do a docu series, that is very depressing because it means that Oprah is still indirectly supporting the Gosselin money train.

When Oprah profiled Octomom earlier last year, she let her cameras follow her in 'a day in the life'.
In this footage, they aired naked bum footage of the older kid and bath time with other kids. This was right when child advocates were testifying in court about this type of footage of the G8 by TLC being inappropriate and illegal (violating child pornography and indecency laws).

I thought at the time that Discovery made Oprah do that to safeguard the same type of Jon and Kate plus 8 footage that already exists, because if Oprah does it, if TLC is sued later they can use the Oprah footage in court and say it was done on other network 'docu-dramas'.

If Oprah's now telling Octo mom to do what she has to do to support her kids, including exploiting them in a series, it's clearly a legal move to continue to back the Gosselin circus. And that is disgusting and depressing.

Why didn't Oprah suggest that Nadya should do the porn offer because 'it's a paycheck to support her kids'. The sickos at Discovery who are now "Oprah's machine' are using her to justify their unethical bondage of the Gosselin kids into perpetuity.

February sweeps are coming up, which is when TLC will most likely air these specials/episodes to help boost ratings for their network.

Sadiemay said...

I think a judge should make an order that only allows Kate to film with the children during Holidays and vacations. TLC can take it or leave it and Kate might have to find some real work for a change.

Sadiemey said...

Steve is kind of a Joke. I mean what does he do ? Nothing but accompany her everywhere and he doesn't look capable of doing anything more than dialing up 911 which Kate could do all by herself and save a ton of money.
This bodyguard stuff is nothing more than Kate pretending that she is a celebrity and important. She uses Steve to bring attention to herself.

Sadiemay said...

When can we see Kate be a guest on another TLC show . Oh Please please please TLC . I loved seeing the REAL Kate on Sarah's show where she reverted back to childhood. It was the best ever. She taught her children to throw tantrums to get their way and to be mean and disrespectful to your guest host and friends. She taught them not to care about anyone else, ever. What a perfect example for that perfect mother to set for her children. We need to see more of the real Kate and not this phony baloney made up Stepford mom that they presently showing.

The good thing is that it's all in the archives for the children to see when they grow up. No denying who Kate really is then.

How much did Oprah and her friend make off Nayda? At least she admits her faults, isn't willing to sell her soul to the devil. Haven't they exploited the woman enough through the Oprah show? What help have they actually given her? Oprah earned her billions exploiting people.

Moose Mania said...

"Sorry, Octomom does not have a Bachelor's Degree. She has a 2 year Associate's Degree as a Mental Health Technician. This could provide her with a job that pays a small bit above minimum wage."

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

According to various online bios, she does have a bachelor's degree. Are these reports incorrect?

"Nadya Suleman holds a 2006 degree in child and adolescent development from California State University, Fullerton, and as late as last spring she was studying for a master's degree in counseling, college spokeswoman Paula Selleck told the Press-Telegram"

And this...

"After graduating from high school in La Puente, Nadya Suleman got a psychiatric technician’s license and went to work at Metropolitan State Hospital, a mental hospital in Norwalk, California. In 1999, during a patient riot at the hospital, Ms. Suleman sustained a back injury, for which she claimed disability. She later amended her disability claim to include depression related to being unable to work. Since her initial disability filing, Nadya Suleman has received over $160,000 in disability payments, which in conjunction with the food stamps Ms. Suleman receives has allowed her to support herself despite being unemployed.

While on disability, Nadya Suleman enrolled at California State University at Fullerton, and completed a bachelor’s degree in Child and Adolescent development. Although she was pursuing a masters degree in counseling from the same institution, she left the program after becoming pregnant with her octuplets."

sadiemay said...

Don't really know if Nadya's bio information is accurate. Where I live a mental health tech is a civil service job which would allow one to work at a mental facility. I also don't think Nadya is being totally honest . She seems to have a need to make herself look better than she actually is. Not sure that's intentional on her part.

Kate and Nadya are similar in that they both are breeders however Nadya does seem to be more in touch with her children than Kate.

Really, Oprah/Suze?! That's all the advice you could give Nadya said...

----------

THANK YOU! This was all for a ratings boost for Oprah's final season. I didn't see two women genuinely wanting to help Nadya and her children get out of her current financial situation. How's that Suze advice helping you, Nadya?! Did it help save you from eviction?

Oprah and Suze seemed more focus on having Nadya admit her faults, that she's addicted to fame and babies rather than REALLY helping her with her finances. Does Nadya really need a $400,000 house she cannot afford? Where's Suze's advice about that?

There are so many normal, middle-class HOM families that could have been showcased to help give Nadya REAL, BETTER advice about cutting down the cost of raising large families. The McCaugheys. The Hayes. They somehow manage to do so without a paycheck, Gosselin style.

I totally disagreed with Suze about dropping the nannies altogether. 1:14 adult-child ratio. That's not even legal in a CA day-care center for infants/toddlers, 1:3 for infants and 1:4 for toddlers. What about looking for church groups/volunteers who would help watch her children, so she can find a real job with a salary?

Nadya did this to herself so she does have to face the consequences. But, I cannot help but feel sad for her children who also have to deal with these unfortunate circumstances because of their mother's actions.

Back then with all the media backlash, TLC probably didn't want to associate themselves with her in fear of outrage/boycott hurting their other shows. But now, with their current line-up, Nadya totally fits in with TLC's reality stars. I fear her desperation will make her reconsider her opposition to reality shows and sign with TLC, if they ever chose to exploit her and her family.

Bobbi McCaughey is Octomom #1, if we're referring to moms of multiples. Septuplets Plus One. Sorry Kate.

I was looking for more information about Oprah's Australia trip, airing this week, when I came about this information:

Tourism Australia piggybacks new US campaign on Oprah’s visit

Tourism Australia hopes to further capitalise on the Australian visit by talk show host Oprah Winfrey with a $5 million marketing push into the US.

The recently announced tourism strategy in the United States will include promotions for value-added holiday packages and a tourism "walkabout" campaign with Qantas targeting time-poor Americans.

All visitors to Australia, unless they have an Australian or New Zealand passport, must have an Australian Travel Visa. Americans are able to travel to Australia using the quick ETA Visa system, which is an online travel authority program that allows the holder to enter Australia for tourism purposes for up to three months. Once approved, the ETA is electronically attached to a passport removing the need for further paperwork.

US youth will also be targeted with a promotion highlighting the Australian Work and Holiday Visa that is available to young Americans.

Some $US1.5 million ($A1.51 million) will also be spent on an "ultimate Aussie holiday sale" to be advertised during each of the four special Oprah shows, as well as in other media.

Other marketing activities will be done on in countries where The Oprah Winfrey Show is broadcast, including Britain, New Zealand and Canada.

The managing director of Tourism Australia, Andrew McEvoy, said Tourism Australia and its partners were putting out 'outstanding deals' to convert excitement over Oprah's visit into firm holiday bookings.

"The Oprah screenings provide an unprecedented opportunity to showcase the best of our country to people in Australia and many of the other 145 countries where the show will be broadcast, especially the US where the show is watched by 40 million viewers alone," Mr McEvoy said.


http://www.visabureau.com/australia/news/10-01-2010/tourism-australia-piggybacks-new-us-campaign-on-oprahs-visit.aspx

This Gosselin Australia trip is no coincidence, especially with Oprah's new connection with Discovery networks.

It was mentioned in RadarOnline that TLC was funding this trip, but it wouldn't surprise me if Australia's tourism industry is really footing the bill (or even partially) especially since it was mentioned they would promote in "other media".

Not sure if any of Oprah's audience (must be 16 and older to attend her show) was allowed to bring their families, but if not, maybe that's why they needed the Gosselins to promote their family/kid-friendly adventures and activities. What other reality tv family with young kids is as notoriously famous as the Gosselins? This late at night, I can't think of another on the top of the my head. Or, I just don't watch enough reality tv.

I could see Discovery/TLC pitching the Gosselins to Tourism Australia to use for promotion, showing clips of their better moments looking like the sweet, lovely family that loves to travel (Yeah, right!). I wonder if Tourism Australia has preview rights to this special to make sure there is a positive spin on this trip. (I would, if I was spending so much money to promote a country's tourism industry.) Or, will TLC use this special during February sweeps to garner more ratings by emphasizing on Gosselin drama - meltdowns, complaints, etc.?

Another celeb I've heard who is very sweet and gracious with fans is Bret Michaels.

And yes, if it weren't for Kate's fans, she would not be where she is today (nor would she have the body, hair, nails, shoes, home etc....) if it weren't for the fans of her family. But she will never see it that way. She will always see it as she deserves it simply because she is Kate.

She rarely tried to reach out to her "fans" for their votes. The only thing she conveyed was that she dances like a mummy.

Orman told her to can the nannies. Told her that everybody hates her already. They just want her at home "being a mom."

When does the "we are broke. . can't pay the bill, blah blah blah" cross the line into now we are multi-millionaires in a reality show jetting around the world?" But still lying about being broke.

Is Jon allowed to go on Oprah and talk about his life? Talk about his very own life and his very own children? Is he allowed to express his concerns about their well-being and his opinions on how they are being raised and cared for and by whom that care is coming from? Is he allowed to state care-free daddy stories?

Not unless TLC, Kate, Steve, her attornies, her "people" allow him to.

The camera and TLC has been Karts affair from the very beginning. The mistress in the marriage.

Overzealous fans clearly referred to just that, FANS. If they would actually look at the overall context of the conversation, Steve said sometimes overzealous fans are a problem as much as people who don't like Kate. So he was juxtiposing fans vs. haters. Clearly, overzealous referred to FANS and fans alone.

Also in her child exploitation book "I Just Want...", Kate said "fans" are "annoying." That really can't be interpreted any other way than fans are annoying. Ouch.

Frankly I think it's rude to talk about fans or non-fans that way. Overzealous fans and overzealous non-fans are a private security issue and to talk about them negatively just makes you look like you don't appreciate or recognize the 99% of other people who behave appropriately. You've just sort of lumped a bunch of people into the crazy pile and moved on. Very rude.

Even Joan Crawford understood: LOVE YOUR FANS.

Reader said... I saw the pictures you are all mentioning and I did not see any nipple falling out. Why do you make things up and why does the Admin print it without checking it out first? This is a disservice to the readers.

Wow. You sound really disappointed there was no nipple shot.

You missed the word "almost" in people's comments. Another 2 cm to the left and it would be there for all the world to see, including her 6 year old sons.

My guess is Admin has a life and does not spend the entire day moderating this blog lol

On a different note,thank you admin because you didn't let your blog be "boars on boards" like the blog of the sheeple leader is right now(seriously they trolled all the "hate" sites and they posted some of our comments and are now ripping them apartt LOL)

Also,I think this is finally working.I do not believe it is a coincidence that 2 days after we discussed the school policy a publication quotes it so good job with this blog,it is raising awarenes.

Last but not least the fans often ask us: Do you think the Gosselin kids will thank you for blogging about their issues and for your "so called concern"? Here's my question: Do YOU think they will thank you for your creepy "fan" videos which include them two by two(the tups) on songs such as "Love Story" by Taylor Swift or all of the tups on "Big Girl Now" by Lady Gaga or one of the girs on "Sexy Bitch" bu Akon( I think) or do you think they'll see you as creeps who envisioned siblings as bf,gf and will wish those videos would go away along with the potty,bet time and vomit footage?
