Kate on George Lopez Tonight: Discussion Thread

What lies will Kate tell this time? Will she bash Jon in the same sentence she vows to never bash Jon? Here we go. Monday night, 2/21/11.

LMAO....

My Direct TV guide lists Kate as "Actress Kate Gosselin" as a guest on his show.

Actress??? In her dreams.

Administrator said...

Kate's an "actress" in the same breathe she is trying to tell us nothing is scripted about the show? She needs a manuel to herself to get all her stories straight.

Sam said...

Didn't watch the Lopez Show, not going to contribute to ratings when that witch is on. Kept track of the comments on Twitter though:
1) She has not set Twitter ablazed.
2) As usual she dressed inappropriately in a dazzling dress
3) Funniest comment by Twihards: George Lopez hitting on Octomon.

HI 50 said...

ACTRESS?!! HAHAHAHAHA!! But she INSISTS there are NO scripts! WTH!! She bragged that their show is the realist reality show...their living their lives, the kids are JUST playing, their not working.

Yeah, for sure, she needs to get her stories straight because her pathological LIES are out of control!!

I loathe this "woman" and her entire brand! said...

Just as I thought- Lopez was a total wuss- (of course, I don't think he's a good interviewer at all) fawning all over her and feeding into her ego. He tried to dance with her when she came on and it was so awkward- she didn't want any part of that! He tried to get her to talk about Jon and she was trying to be coy. She was flirting so much in her spaghetti strapped dress- it IS winter isn't it? She looked very uncomfortable and as usual, kept looking down and saying um a lot. She actually told him she had been on a couple of dates here and there. The whole time, she was trying to convince George that no one would want her because of her situation only for him to keep telling her how beautiful and fit she is. I was having trouble sleeping tonight and I watched out of curiosuty. At one point, he told her she could have a free slap for all the things he said about her and when he moved up to her- she kissed him on the cheek. Then a few minutes later she rubbed it off his face. This made me literally sick to my stomach! She is just so INCREDIBLY fake. George even showed her bikini shot and fawned all over it. The funny thing- barely a mention of her show. Again, she said she only has a baysitter half of the week but when she's home- she does everyting. I'm sure I'm missing some things here- it's just this made me so sick! At one point, George said something negative about Jon and she said- YOU said that. When George kept saying he's been trying so hard to get her on the show and how he wanted to keep her on- well- ya'll know. She is such a boring guest with NO personality. I loathe this "woman"...

I loathe this "woman" and her entire brand! said...

p.s. Because I'm not a Nielson family, I don't believe watching it tonight counts towards her ratings. Besides, I tuned in to see the basketball player! When he came out- he came through the audience and was slapping people hello! He had so much personality too!

Administrator said...

When will Kate learn to just say I don't discuss the children's father publically period and I would appreciate if you did not discuss him either. There are softball interviews, she has every right to go into the pre-interview with a DEMAND that Jon not be discussed period that it's not appropriate. There isn't a softball interviewer on the planet who wouldn't honor that request if it meant to get Kate on the show. But then Kate is sick and twisted and would never do that because how would she bash Jon and call more attention to everything otherwise.

"You said it, not me" is snarky and rude and almost the same thing as saying it herself.

Administrator said...

So Kate thinks no one wants her because of her "situation." She means the kids right? Way to blame the kids for your failures, Kate.

Kate, take note. The kids have nothing to do with the lack of men in your life. No one wants you because you're a mean and vile person, period.

I loathe this "woman" and her entire brand said...

Oh yeah- I just remembered this and this is for you Stef- I can't believe she says she watches Dexter- (she fumbled saying she watches it when the kids are away -on the weekends- On Demand) She had to throw in that she met Michael C Hall at the Emmy's (had to throw in how important she is). She said she was start struck and fawned all over him. She didn't say what he said back to her (my guess is he was probably thinking who the hell is this fake blonde fake boobed nut job- that is- if she actually did meet him- my guess is not- she was trying to sound important and I don't think he ever said a word to her if she did in fact meet him) but she did say he didn't come back to the event after meeting her! She said she was her own worse nightmare. Yeah- like people fawn all over you like that- Pahleeze! Again, I think she was using this story for the pity vote from George! The interview went just as I thought and I even think I sorta scripted it before it happened. So predictable for George and Kate. He told Kate she needed a latino. With only 8 kids- she's like a virgin. Now that George and his wife are separated (not sure if it's final)- he's free! Like I said- SOOOOO FAKE and disgusting!

Ingrid said...

Who did TLC hire to date her? I have a hard time believing someone really wanted to for free!

such a loser said...

she sure was being coy, fishing for compliments. it surebugged me when george started dissing jon (the ed hardy phase); wasnt that a couple of years ago? Geez. An wuld it kill her to stick up for jon just once? she still acts as if she suffered for being married to him, when the truth was quite the opposite. i think every interviewer is instructed to diss jon and ask kate if she does all the childcare when she has the kids. for most moms that would be a given, but kate has to make sure we all know that she cooks, shops, and does homework with the kids (eye roll). I see that now she's up to 8 miles running now....uh huh. And she mentioned that she can outrun the paparazzi...not only delusional and a liar, but she simply cannot do an interview without complaining about how she is hounded by those pesky photographers. So sad that she has no one actually taking her picture anymore. No mention of the lipo galore in her weight loss, but hey, it's kate. oh, and she looked fat and blobby in her dress. So she can run "8 miles on a good day", but the bitch is still unlovely. she really had nothing to talk about because she doesn't do anything but primp for hernonexistent fans and those ever-present paparazzi

Here is the segment from The Lopez show.

JudyK said...

Saw only part of this, but do you honestly think if she had had a couple of dates (and this is what she always says) that it would not have been documented by the dozens of paps that follow her...(snark intended)...she's been boning Steve for years...and her dates are all there getaways together. Then, when she was talking about watching Dexter, she said she turns on all the lights because it's late at night and she's ALL ALONE...she kept repeating that. (Steve, she's denying your existence...poor Stevie.) Kate is too uneducated to get this, but the "lady" doth protest too much. She is so totally FULL OF B.S. Oh, and she kept talking about how she does ALL of the grocery shopping, etc., and that she has three carts and tells people, "you do not want to get behind me." And, then at the end, George twirled her around, at which point I upchucked in my mind.

BerksPa said...

Did anyone catch the question that George asked about Kate going shopping with the kiddos...
She didn't say she shopped alone, just implied that 'yes' the kids go with her. *cough* BS *cough*
Then what do we see yesterday...sure enough a picture of her and all the kids shopping together. (which anyone local knows doesn't happen)

She needs to stop with the nervous leg thing...moveing them in and out. Just CROSS YOUR ANKLES like a lady if you aren't going to cross your legs because you wear such short dresses. Awkward.
And the tan has got to go...just so fake. I'm all for a healthy glow in the spring and summer, but it's the middle of winter in PA. Looks trashy and so unnatural.

Laurie said...

1. If she's so hounded by the paparazzi why didn't we see any pictures of her in LA?
2. She does it all alone with only a part time babysitter....that's why they're filming an episode of Kate shopping with all the kids to prove it to us! Not "scripted" at all...
3. George Lopez doesn't have room to dis anyone. Didn't he dump his wife AFTER she gave him a kidney!

wayward said...

Well Well! Over at GWOP a poster said they read on Twitter that Kate has done voice over work for Disney or Pixar for a movie coming out this summer. A quick check showed that Pixar has Cars 2 coming out in June and Disney has Beverly Hills Chihuahua coming out sometime this year. Her wailing, screeching, whining and cackling is perfect for cartoons. I really hope this turns out to be true, it's time for Kate to provide for her children, not the other way around.

Ellie said...

Unless a guest goes on a show to help out the host in the case of a cancelled guest, they are always promoting some NEW movie, album, play or charity.

What is she promoting - another new dress? Is her next stop trying to be a guest on an infomercial?

IDModo said...

George Lopez is despicable for trashing Jon repeatedly while Kate, equally despicable, giggled and pretended to distance herself from the remarks.

Apparently neither if them sees,or cares,that their behaviour might be responsible for causing the children anger or sorrow.

They deserve each other: a pair of thoughtless phony famewhores without redeeming social value.

T.I.N.I.C. said...

If she is doing a somnambulant robot I can believe the voice work. Otherwise? Not really. Her voice goes dead when she is doing voice over segments on her show.
If she develops an ear then maybe but really how many scenes are there for sleeping robots?

Razzy said...

Ratings are not complied by just Neilsen anymore, they gather numbers from satelite and cable companies too. Anytime you turn on a program, your number counts Nielsen or not.

Who's your daddy said...

Well Well! Over at GWOP a poster said they read on Twitter that Kate has done voice over work for Disney or Pixar for a movie coming out this summer.
------------------------------------------------
If it's true, the movie that makes sense is Beverly Hills Chihuahua which would be the Disney movie. It's the movie that Lopez would be involved in. I happened to catch the show and those two deseerve each other. Can either of them get any more annoying?

Hippie Chick said...

Gramof5...
I am so sorry about what has happened to you regarding your COPD. I hope you get the treatment you need & get well. This scares me to no end. I worked in bars in years that allowed smoking so not only was I inhaling 2nd hand smoke, I smoke myself, fueling the flame. I also want to thank Buyer Beware for the link. I will shut up now about the smoking. :)

I didn't watch Kate on Lopez Tonight. I was hoping from what I read here he would do or say something to embarrass her. WHY NOW though? She just needs to stay relevant that's all. She is desperate & pathetic. A 1a.m. talk show (midnight?) please Kate. She is not plugging her shows, nothing. She is just making herself look like a bigger asshole, as usual.

Administrator said...

You know frankly I think voice work would be GREAT for this situation, as long as the kids are with Jon, not nannies, when Kate is in L.A. or wherever the voice work is. And a lot of actors who don't necessarily live in L.A. often make demands voiceovers be done at their home town. Surely nearby Philly would have a good studio for it.

It doesn't involve the kids, it doesn't exploit the kids, it's Kate earning her money on her own merit. I say she should do voice work for her "real" job.

someone's hearing voiceovers said...

it would be great if she actually got a "job" without the kids...

at least it is not making the kids work.

JudyK said...

Kate said that she wanted to do voiceovers when she did her interview with Natalie Morales a couple of years ago. What makes her think she has the talent to do that...but I can see why she'd want to do it, because it's easy work and it's reading a script. She's so damned lazy--she never suggests getting real work--work that requires using her mind and sweat--just the mindless glamour work. And I'm not demeaning REAL stars who do voiceovers, because they've earned the right to do them and have the personality to do them and just their names draw viewers to those movies. Also noticed last night that Kate is still wearing the single diamond necklace instead of the two she wore all the time, and I think there may be trouble in Steveland. She needs to keep her legs together...she spreads them apart on every talk show she's on and constantly turns her feet in and out like a little kid...she has ZERO grace.

Jill said...

Wow! She is really socially awkward. The girl can't carry on a conversation without saying things that make absolutely zero sense.

She is so fake it's nauseating. The Kate you see on talk shows IS NOT the Kate you see on her silly little show.

On talk shows she's all "hee hee hee, me me me" and giddy and smiley and flirty little girl voice.

On her show she's all, "SHUT UP!!!! Grrrrrrrrrrrr!!!! Lord have mercy why me?" with a scowl and voice of the devil in The Exorcist.


I hate her. I really do. So phoney.

I loathe this "woman" and her entire brand! said...

Sorry administrator but there are thousands of people who study very hard to become voice-over actors who deserve these parts. Khate has ZERO talent! ZERO! Many voice over artists are trained in dialect, expression, diction, etc. I really hate when these reality people try to parlay their 15 minutes into acting jobs. If that's the case, then this would be a great job for Octomom too! Personally, there was no reason to implant Khate with so many embryos especially since selective reduction was not part of the package. The fact that she has become famous for this and the scandals, does not make her a voice-over artist! Pahleeze! She should not take jobs away from real actors because she cannot manage the money she has earned. How are the Table for Twelve living? Their combined salaries don't even come close to what the Gosselins have earned. They were at least smart enough to make a Ragu commercial and instead of being an actress, the mom portrayed herself as a mom just feeding her family. The Gosselins should have gone that route instead of the "I'm a Stah" route. They would have earned enough money from national commercials and their kids' privacy would not have been invaded. They also would have lived within their means. Khate is certainly not a Kardashian- but wants to be! She pretty much ruined it for herself because of her personality and lack of true work ethic! Dancing with the Stars proved what kind of person she is- the fact that she believes she IS a celebrity! Geesh- I loathe this.....

She does do voice overs on her show, and when she does, she sounds so robotic and has no inflection. She has that monotone voice that is obvious she is reading from A SCRIPT.

Ice Queen said...

Another perfect example of the true Kate and where her heart and priorities lie...

George Lopez bashed Kate and made jokes about her all year long, and he gets a kiss from her and giggles and she couldn't be happier to be in his presence.


Jodi helps Kate for years with no strings attached, and as soon as TLC offers her a contract, Kate spats at her and kicks her to the curb and never speaks to her again.

&&&&&&&&&

Are there any characters who can't talk without saying, UUUMMMMMMM between every word? If so, she's perfect for the job! It would be typecasting at its best!

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

Didn't watch it...
Couldn't care less...
Not surprised that George kissed Kate's a*s...

Same, same, same...

Meanwhile, let's say a prayer for the folks in New Zealand, who were rocked by an earthquake.

E-town Neighbor said...

Actress??? In her dreams.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Actually, she is an actress. She's been pretending to be a "can-do" Kate for years, acting out the the role of a devoted mother who does everything for her children. "Actress" is a perfect description of her. However, since she claims that this is the realest of reality shows that aren't scripted, if I were her, I may be a bit ticked off to see me described as "actress." It's not in the least bit complimentary.

Westcoaster said...

George Lopez in the middle of the night is hardly a PR coup for the KG brand IMHO. And if she's doing voice overs, hope they are using the shriek and cackle because she is certainly someone who can't speak or read two words together without a pause or an umm. Seriously, with all the talent that exists in SoCal who in their right mind is going to import this mom from PA for voiceovers, unless it is a one time favor? Good luck with that career Kate.

AuntieAnn said...

Watched the clip, thanks (or maybe not...lol) Barb in Nebraska.
Lopez's interviewing style is no screaming hell, but that woman is as dull as dishwater. Yes, we know you have eight kids Kate, and yes we know you're Latino, George. Stop the presses.

Funny she didn't mention getting a voice-over gig. Usually people go on talk shows to promote whatever project they're involved in, not to yap on about grocery shopping. What a waste of nine minutes.

Marie said...

If Kate did a voiceover on a movie, don't you think she would have been talking about that on her two recent TV appearances?

Overit said...

George Lopez is without a doubt the worst interviewer I have ever seen. How is that show even staying on the air?

Then you add the ummmm ummmm guest, and you got a real snoozefest.

Laurie said...

Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2 is a direct to video release (not going to be in theaters) and if you go to the link you won't see her name listed. If she has done something it's a very, very, small part. As you know she's mentioned that she wanted to do voiceover work in the past. Maybe this is her PR people putting out some feelers.

fidosmommy said...

Does Kate have weak ankles? I would have thought so from the way they were rolling around
in those shoes while she was in the interview chair.

Voiceover work, huh? Have you ever heard Kate read? It's not a pleasant experience. She overemphasizes her words and her voice has no tenor, no fullness, no range, no noticeable quality. While I'm all for her earning her own living, I'm not so sure this is the career for her.

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

Ah, but can or could have Jodi ever helped Kate the famewhore get to Hollywood? That's the problem with the "regular" people that Kate threw away, save for Tony Dovalani (sp). She would have gone on Jimmy Fallon's show & sucked on his toes for a whole segment if it meant her getting coverage even after him making fun of her as much as he did. She just doesn't care, as long as she is getting attention, be it bad or good. A true narcissist right there.

And how frigin sad & pathetic is it that she can't defend the father of her children, & she doesn't realize the ramifications that will have on her kids when they are old enough to see & hear what she has said & the hate behind her words. She is burying herself with her lies, with her hate & vile & her poisonous attitude. Her undoing will not be when she stops herself, but when she is stopped by someone/something else. She won't stop herself, she is too self-centered, too wrapped up in her self-promotion, & her own ego. Her kids welfare does not matter to her. She craves the world & lifestyle that her childrens money has created for her. When that all goes away, which is happening right now, she will blame everyone around her, including her kids, Jon (again & again), TLC, Steve, but never herself. She will be alone, but will never see whose fault it really is. Hers.

*It will be a fine day when on E! News Weekend in the not so distant future, they show Kate, out shopping at Target, & there she is, age 38, all wrinkly & brown, her kids are living with Jon, & Ryan Seacrest says, "This, ladies & gentleman, is what happens when you push for fame too hard. Kate Gosselin, ex-reality mom of 8, loses custody of her kids, out shopping solo at Target today. We hear she called the paps but nobody showed. This is a photo from a local. Look at the mess she has become folks. She is going home to her modest 3 bedroom house after having to sell her mansion in Wernersville PA after going broke because well, she just made bad choices involving her children & frankly, she just went by the wayside, & fast. Fame, or shall I say in Gosselin's case, infamy, isn't always a good thing".

Kate on Lopez was baddddd said...

Here's a transcript from the Geo Lopez show as well as a video for you to watch.

pressi.lefora.com/Kate-Lopez-transcript

Save8FromEvilKate said...

Lopez's site is removing negative comments against Kate. There were four when I looked about 2 1/2 hours ago and now there is one. TLC paying out hand over fist to anyone, anywhere, anywhow to remove any negative comments about this witch. What a freakin joke!!!

Anonymous said...

Kate's appearance on Lopez seems to just prove how horrible of a person she is. She makes sure they don't trash her but let's them trash Jon. Her kids will see the truth one day. Kate had it all planned and I think it is just one more reason the children will hate her. Good for Jon not doing such evil things. It will pay off for him, the children will love and respect him for it. Kate could have stopped it before it started but she was part of it all and the children will know it one day. Kate made a fool of herself yet again. Proves she don't love those kids at all other than to make money for her. Keep it up Kate, you are setting yourself up for a sad life-more sad than it is now. You deserve it though. Why does she do this to herself? Such a stupid woman!

sadiemay said...

Kate isn't comfortable in her own skin. She could never be an actress. She looked at times like she was ready to pee her pants. And she actually believed that George wanted to keep her on DWTS because he liked her. LMAO And her hair looks fried and frizzy. LMAO at Kate needing a Latin guy. He would surely put her in her place. Oil and water
don't mix well.

Why do they even have her on these shows. All she can talk about is how she does EVERYTHING at home like every other mother in America. Why is that news ? She's never done EVERYTHING anyway. The hired help could attest to that . She has absolutely no talent and this was just another comedian using her for his own fodder and ratings.

Do any of these people pointing out that she looks great for having 8 kids realize she only had 2 pregnancies with the bonus of Plastic surgery to erase the telltale signs of having given birth and restoring her body to pre pregnancy status. A woman who has actually had 8 different pregnancies with a body like that are the ones who should be commended not the phonies like Kate Gosselin.

Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2 went straight to DVD a few weeks ago.Looking at the cast,I didnt see the wenches name on the list.
If she found her way into a movie dont you think she'd be everywhere talking about it?

I didnt watch the Lopez show,I refuse to give this woman any attention.The best way to get to kate is by NOT making her an issue.I will call her out when something involves the kids.This appearence did not...So I dont give a crap.

I'm kind of mad at myself for taking 30 seconds to look up the cast of the movie,and another 2 minutes to write this post.Thats 2min and 30sec out of my life I wasted on this trash of a woman.She deserves nothing!

Sadiemay said...

I was just over there and most of the comments there seem to be anti Kate.

Elle said...

Just out of curiosity, I went over imdb, which would have future voice over work recorded, if it was coming out this year. Somehow, her show "Alaska, Here we come" is being called a "TV Movie" and so she gets the title of "actress", instead of "self". Kinda makes me sad to see the children also listed as "actors" and "actresses" in that same show.

PJ's momma said...

There are 8 negative comments on Lopez's site right now. Look, I loathe Kate too, but why do people assume that TLC pays other networks to remove negative comments on a public board? There are negative comments all over every article and picture put out there with her. They didn't offer this blog money to shut down; they sent a letter, which was ignored and that was the end of it. Some of those comments look like they come from crazy people - not that I disagree with any of them - but perhaps they just don't want that kind of hatred (and what could perceive as stalking) on their site. They're like 'opposite sheeple' comments, providing lots and lots of details about someone they don't know. If anything, it confirms people will tune in to watch a train wreck and it could keep the gravy train going. Anyway, I just feel nobody's being paid to remove comments from 'haterz' from a comment section.

IDModo said, "George Lopez is despicable for trashing Jon repeatedly while Kate, equally despicable, giggled and pretended to distance herself from the remarks."

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

ITA and I think it was despicable that Kate on The Talk referred to her camera crew as "dads" for the kids since Jon is very much alive and active in his children's lives.

I need help - anyone know where I can find the link to the specific comments made by one of the original Gosselin camera guys after he went to film the Duggars? He (Scott? Jim?) said it was a different environment and that even his own daughter who was there in attendance could see a difference between the two families.

Whereever this link is, it is just more evidence that if Kate's lips are moving she is lying.

Did anyone have a ratings comparison for Lopez with Khate and without Khate eps?

Beverly Hills C*** was a piece of crap movie. We paid $1 to see it and we all walked out. The sequel is straight to dvd isn't?

Jon and Kate 'Miss Each Other'; Settling Into More Normal Lives

By Rob Shuter Posted Feb 22nd 2011 04:42PM

Jon Gosselin is doing everything he can to win back the love of ex-wife, Kate, including getting a real job to impress his ex.

"They both realize how much they miss each other," a friend of the couple's tells me. "Neither one of them have been really happy since their ugly split and would love to turn back time to the point where they were both in love before fame took over."

Jon recently traded his Ed Hardy shirts for a hardhat and scored a job with Green Pointe Energy, a Pennsylvania-based renewable energy company. The former reality star and computer techie spends his days installing solar panels and doing other good-for-the-planet deeds.

Following months of very public fighting, the couple have found peace again now that the cameras have gone away. As everything has started to return to normal so have Jon and Kate with Jon now working in green construction and Kate turning to being a full-time mom again.

"After the split the both of them were out of control. Kate thought she was going to be dating Brad Pitt, and Jon was sure he was going to be a superstar. Neither one of them found what they were looking for when they were single and have both come to the conclusion that maybe they are right for each other."

Plus, it wouldn't hurt ratings on next season's show! Just saying ...

Gosselin Gossip said...

Well Well! Over at GWOP a poster said they read on Twitter that Kate has done voice over work for Disney or Pixar for a movie coming out this summer. A quick check showed that Pixar has Cars 2 coming out in June and Disney has Beverly Hills Chihuahua coming out sometime this year.

Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2 is already out on dvd.

There's also Disney's Mars Needs Moms movie, but that's coming out in March.

Ava said...

Kate is the perfect example of fame gone wrong. The little bubble of yes people she has created around herself is distorting her perception of reality. She seemed to think that George Lopez' campaign to keep her on DWTS was serious. And she also seemed to think that she had a chance with Hall. The way she talked about him leaving the party and not coming back. Besides sounding like a school girl, it sounded like she was expecting him to stay at the party just so he could talk to her. By the way, didn't he recently get divorced after his cancer treatment? Was he still married at the time of the Emmy's? Kate also seems to think that just because these talk show hosts are nice to her on the show that that means that they like her. I don't think that she gets that they are just doing their jobs and that she's just another interview for them.

I hope that Jon is as happy as he can be, despite having to deal with Kate. That is the best revenge. It's killing her that he has a job and a steady girlfriend. The more he publicly ignores her attacks the more it probably annoys her. It's hard to play the victim when you're the only one doing any attacking.

fidosmommy said...

I just checked the sites for Cars 2 and Mars Needs Moms. The voices are provided by a mix of well established actors/personalities, some who are sort of known and there are some I've never heard of.

Kate Gosselin is not on either cast list for voice work.

Mandy said...

Wow. I'm a little shocked people are putting so much stock into this. George Lopez is a dirty minded crass flirt. Kate means nothing to him. He does what the network tells him to do.

I've read all the blogs. The sheeple seem to think that Lopez is a scumbag, yet awesome because he was nice to Kate... Huh???

She's looked better, though it appeared they used full body makeup to tone down the orange. It was a good move, though it can't hide the fact that her pretty fresh-faced skin is gone. I sure wish I could have picked out her outfit, though. Not sure why she favors dresses that accentuate the widest part of her abdomen.

At any rate, the world is going crazy. There is violence across the middle east. The US is out of money, and we're flat broke! People are sick and dying. And we obsess over Kate Gosselin? What's the point? Her ship has sailed. Let's move on... Nothing to see here anymore!

Voiceover my ass. Krieder does not have the intelligence to do voiceovers.
First of all, you need reading and comprehension skills to understand the emotion needed to enhance the character. Not in ONE MILLION YEARS would any studio employ her for that.

Maybe Spookey World in Massachusetts would give her a Fifty spot to record the cackle. They did pay Tiny Tim a pittance to sing one time. Yeah,
a cackle would be about it.

He was by far one of the the nicest, kindest celebrities I had ever interviewed. He not only called me after the story appeared, but personally showed up at my office with a very large bouquet of flowers for me. He was gracious and appreciative, and although a bit eccentric, he had more class in his ukelele than Kate does in her entire body.

Regarding the Shuter interview. Does Ellen know this? ;-)

"The cameras have gone away?" What cameras? The pap's cameras or the TLC cameras? Obviously this guy lives on another planet if he missed the entire Australia fiasco. Maybe someone should direct him to the recent Giant shopping trip filming. Oh wait, he might claim those were just home movies.

Virginia Pen Mom said...

Someone on another blog (WG's?) pointed out that Jon & Kate Plus 8 had "writers" and that Kate was listed as an actress on IMDB.

This made me curious, so I went to IMDB and randomly chose an episode--"Jon & Kate Plus 8 Go Green!" Beth Glover and Jeff Lanter are listed under "Writing Credits". (They're also the producers.) The children are listed by name under "Cast" and as "playing themselves".

If the kids are just living their lives--or however Kate spins it--why are there writers? 'Splain that, please, Kate? And it creeps me out these children are called "the cast" who are "playing themselves". Very Truman Show and very disturbing.

I happened to catch part of the "Truman Show" recently. Near the beginning, a woman talks about it being all real, nothing scripted. This was soon after "The Talk," and the echo of Kate saying the same thing was in my head. Again, very creepy.

Here's the link:

The Witch is only suited for Spooky World Oct 31. said... Voiceover my ass. Krieder does not have the intelligence to do voiceovers.
First of all, you need reading and comprehension skills to understand the emotion needed to enhance the character. Not in ONE MILLION YEARS would any studio employ her for that.

I said the same thing yesterday, but my comment was never published. Cannot believe AOL has Kate and Jon Re-Uniting as a lead story today. I don't believe it, and, as someone else remarked, is Ellen aware of this!

Hippie Chick said...

The whole George Lopez thing...OK, I am going to try & sound as politically correct as I can. He may suck as a host but the reason he has his own show is because a) he is BFF's with Sandra Bullock. She helped him become what he is today. Maybe Kate thought she had a chance in hell meeting HER. And b) he is Latino. There are no Latino talk-show hosts on cable, he caters to the Latino community, which is awesome, but frankly, IMO I find him loud & crass. (I prefer Conan.)

About Kate doing voice-over work, I agree with the poster(s) who say she would have plugged her work. (Why didn't she plug ANY of her shows either?) She didn't. This is probably just a rumor. What director, casting director, or producer, would want Kate Gosselin at this point in time in her career for anything? She is falling faster than the speed of light. She offers nothing special. This isn't 2008 when she was, well, a hot commodity. She ain't that anymore. She barely blips. No paps are chasing her anymore, what does that say? People are conjuring up stories to TRY & keep her relevant, like say, I dunno, her PR people? Don't fall for it. She is over & has NOTHING to offer anymore, except the same old tired lies & contradictions. Yawn.

IMDB has to list people in order for it to be on. Thus, the kids are "cast" as it is a reality show.

I don't think at all that Kate or the kids are actors. This is simply done for qualifying purposes for the sight so TLC can list it.

Ya'll are thinking WAY too much!

When I checked the comment queue this morning I noticed there were a handful of comments I had already approved which were back in the queue. Blogger, as usual, gets buggy and does things like that. So if your comment wasn't published and you don't think you broke any rules, check again because I just re-approved a bunch.

3) Shame on that "journalist" who wrote that J&K were getting back together. Can you imagine how the kids would feel if someone asked them about it?

Sienna said...

I was wondering if anyone had heard of any of Twist of Kate news? or rumors? or anything of what is happening, how much retooling can one show take to make it relevant?
I have known for a long time now that she was talentless ( is that a word? in her world it probably is!) But I had my doubts about TLC being this clueless....till a few months ago when they brought back the slave pit.
Anyhow if anybody has insight I am curious, this would really give the kids a break.

gotyournumberKate said...

Wow! I just got back after being away for a few days and wanted to comment but after reading the others see it's all been said. There were some great, on the nose comments on this thread!

I also read the comments on a blog I won't name and as usual as long as the interviewer treats Kate nice they are great but as soon as they change their thoughts they are dirt. When George Lopez was trashing Kate during DWTS he was a piece of dirt now he's okay. The comments about him were downright hateful. They're too delusional to realize no talk show host is going to trash their guest, no one would ever come on their show. I'm sure Kate makes sure of all of this before she even goes on. I'd love to see the paperwork signed before she goes on a show. I don't think we are ever going to see a show where the host asks the questions everyone of them wants to really ask Kate. It's just not going to happen.

When Nina Frye agreed with them she was the greatest woman on earth and they were so thrilled to be a part of her show. Now that she has seen the light everything good they ever wrote about her has disappeared from their blog and according to them Nina's doing it all to increase listeners not that she really has a mind of her own. They have been relentless in trashing her. That are so transparent it isn't even funny.

Admin, I hope you have a very speedy recovery!

Administrator said...

The last time a talk show host trashed their guest it was an international incident. I'm speaking of Rosie ODonnell going after Tom Selleck shortly after Columbine for being in the NRA. That was a HUGE deal, caused all kinds of controversy, lines in the sand, it took ages for that story to go away. Why? Becuase hosts NEVER trash their guests. So when you do, it's a giant thing. Rule number two in the secret hosting manuel is NEVER trash your guest, and beside that rule is a giant photo of Tom and Rosie. It's almost impossible to say whether someone sincerely is fond of someone based on a softball interview.

Hollywood is two-faced, Hollywood is all about sucking up, Hollywood is fake, fake, fake. Talk shows are everything I hate about it, and this was no different. Everything I hate about the whole thing is exactly what Kate loves, go figure.

Save8FromEvilKate said...

Admin: I would like to see a Barbara Walters type interview with you doing it. Now those would be real questions....... I haven't watched any of Walters interviews in years but she did get to the nitty gritty where people couldn't walk around the question.

Also, glad your surgery went well. I have plenty of health problems of my own so I know (or wish I would know) what a relief it is to have something taken care of, especially if it's a problem gone forever!

Administrator said...

Thank you Save8. For a young person I've probably been in the hospital more than usual, but I'm lucky that all my issues, every single one, have been fixable. I am health obsessed, I exercise every day, I eat extremely healthy (not organic except dairy and meat, just mostly healthy farmer's market stuff), and yet the body I was given has needed a bit of tweaking over the years! The medical people always praise me for my impressive blood work, LOL, because nothing wrong with me ever really has to do with my overall body's excellent health, just very specific areas! I am so grateful when I go to the hospital and see people SOO much worse off than me that I have the kind of thing that can be fixed AND the doctors that know how to fix me. Namely I've had a couple hernias from congenital weaknesses in the abdominal wall, a handful of kidney stones--largely hereditary and the pain is INSANE, an h.pylori infection that was cured, and the surgery I had today was for another abdominal congenital defect that while sort of harmless to my overall health, was causing me some pain and discomfort. All fixed and I'm feeling great and very blessed.

Administrator said...

Save8, I did try to ask Kate a REAL question, Will the new child labor laws effect filming. I was promptly escorted out.

These people are not interested in confronting the real issues. They either cart you away or feed you a bunch of delusional lies with some parental alienation thrown in. Even the best journalist can't work with that!

http://insidetv.ew.com/2010/04/08/kate-gosselin-to-star-in-tlcs-new-twist-of-kate/

Past articles are always interesting to me:
This one from April 2010 (during DWTS) talks about her upcoming "...new series will follow Gosselin as she travels the country to meet families with challenges at work or at home and attempt to “walk a mile in their shoes,” according to a TLC statement. The show will also give Gosselin a chance to “roll up her sleeves and see what she can to do to help.”"


Then it goes on to say:
"Gosselin, however, will star in a series of Kate Plus 8 specials that will focus on her complicated home life."

How interesting to be billed as a 'star' in a series that revolves around your children.
Then again, we never saw much of the homelife, she just flew to one location after another.
I have to wonder if something was settled in court about no filming at the home anymore. I wonder if it was a small concession for privacy for the kids. (if so, kudos Jon for the baby steps) Although it cost the show viewers because people can't relate to the extravagant trips that they take. In this economy, Kate would have been better off being the coupon clipping, lets get 'er done, ultra planned out mom, instead of sporting the low cut tops - to show of the new 'twins', hooker healed, short skirt wearer that she became.

Whomever is advising Kate has no idea what they passed up when it comes to viewers. She could have seriously banked on a 'household book', coupon storage book, etc. Tips for babysitters of large families. But she blew it because now she is seen not as a mom, but a desperate single woman ..."looking for a rich man" (she said it on George Lopez). Her image never got refined and she's stuck in a rut having become a caricature of herself.

Bubbles, the non-blogger ID one said...

It might be fun to have a thread to post questions we'd like to see asked of Kate. It's a given that she'd never answer them truthfully, but I'd still like to see the questions asked someday.

Aeris said...

Glad to hear you're doing well, Admin! Hope your recovery is nice and relaxing. :)

I totally understand talk show hosts being overly kind with guests that they aren't thrilled to be interviewing. I've only seen George Lopez's show once, a couple weeks ago when Justin Bieber happened to be his guest. Maybe it was just me, but George seemed uncomfortable, like he was out of his element in talking to a kid. It was like he wanted to crack a joke or two at Justin, but couldn't. As far as Khate's concerned, there was no doubt he was going to kiss her behind and say how wonderful she is. Money will make anyone be nice, and the paid Yes-people she's surrounded by aren't helping her. I think her current "reality" is totally fake and based on her ability to generate controversy and interest. Once that fades away, she is going to fall hard. I admit I'm scared for her, not just for her kids.

E-town Neighbor said...

^^^^^^^^^^^

She could have done this if she had played her cards right and been a nice, gracious and pleasant person and had shown that she actually DID something in the household. That would have meant changing her demeanor for the better. A zebra, however, cannot change its stripes. Nobody wants to buy something hawked by someone with zero personality. She has no credibility. Her book sales flopped; the clothing line went nowhere. No amount of expert advice on the part of handlers or public relations persons could have done this because SHE was unwilling to act like a decent human being. She blew it big time because of herself, not because her advisers slipped up on the job.

AuntieAnn said...

She sunk that ship a long time ago all by her hypocritical self. Even back three or four years ago people were pissed when Proctor and Gamble brought her onboard to promote their brandsaver book when they opened their new coupon store. And she can't give tips about raising kids when she doesn't have a clue how to manage her own.

There's really no place to put this witch so I think her handlers are just going to keep exploiting her for the freakshow she is, until someone freakier comes along.

______________________________________________

How ironic! Kate "attempting to walk a mile in their shoes" when, as many of the locals might remember, that was Jon and Kate's mantra for the first 2 years of the tups lives. They CONSTANTLY reminded the public to walk a mile in their shoes. I assume to encourage people to dig a little deeper into their pockets when buying them that case of paper towels or Target gift cards. And also when Nursegate happened and the people were just damn sick and tired of their greedyness.

FYI, Rob Shuter is one of the biggest liars in the biz. Ack! Why do you think his site is called Poopeater?

Hall, the man has intelligence. I doubt if he even knows who the heck Katie Irene Kreider Gosselin is, imagine the look on his face when she opened her mouth. LOL!

Well you know Rearranging, if it walks like a duck we may as call her on it. Speaking of 'witch', she's looking a deeper shade of burnt orange and even more wrinkled and meaner today than usual on Admin's 15 minutes banner. Even her caricature is aging in front of our very eyes.

Correction. Make that "may as WELL call her on it".

Also, I noticed the thatched roof on her head is even thatchier - if I'm allowed to use Kate's vernacular. Good job, Emily and Admin.

It was a children's clothing line by HealthTex.
It was to be marketed through WalMart stores. The labels were actually seen in a few WalMarts, but there was great outcry against the whole idea of Kate on clothing tags, and pretty soon they were gone. It could be the clothes went overseas for sales, but I'm not clear on that. HealthTex had to do something with them.... just like Zondervan had to do something with her cookbook.

Acutally, Kate might have made a really good Garanimals type tag. Match the scowling face with another scowling face, match the
pointing fingers, match the white plastic chairs........

**********

I didn't say the children were actors. I said they were listed as playing themselves, which creeped me out. That's not what I think. It's what I feel.

My point has nothing to do with that. My point is that if there are writers, they are writing something--dialogue, storylines, prompts, or situations. The writer's creations don't have to be lines (nor the kids actors) for the show to be scripted. For example:

"The kids run up the Museum steps happily."
"Two of the children fight over ice cream."

Kate claims the children's actions on camera are spontaneous. That's not logical if there are writers. They're writing SOMETHING. And if the children have to do something they're told for money, they're working and Kate's lying. As usual.


Host: Do you regret putting your kids on television?

KATE: I don’t. The big difference for us is, we’re not scripted. You heard me. We ARE NOT scripted (laughs). We are living, the kids run in and out of the frame and they just live.

Virginia Pen Mom said...

gotyournumberKate said...

Just a little OT rant. One of the biggest reasons the sheeple have for supporting Kate is they are "women supporting working women". It's like no matter what she does it's okay because she is a working woman. Give me a break! I know a lot of nasty women who work and I've seen working mothers who have no business being mothers. Just because a a person is a woman and she works does not give her a free pass to be nasty, manipulative, degrading, and exploit her children for personal gain. Get off your feminist high horse sheeple people and realize this! Rant over. Thanks:)

Darcy said...

I checked IMDB, which has all the credits for talent and production for all TV and film projects both past and current "in production" projects. I have a couple friends who are actors in LA who are not famous and have only done a few guest roles - and they are on IMDB.

The only think Kate is listed for is playing herself on TLC. No voiceover or acting (or producing or being a script girl...). Nada.

Administrator said...

The "they don't like Kate because they are anti-feminists" is an old argument and completely bogus. It's just a red herring to distract from the real issue we've made perfectly clear--the exploitation of the kids.

If people were anti-feminists where was the outcry when Kate was a nurse? Oh, right there was none.

I went to school seven years to get my degrees and be able to work outside the home, I am hardly against women working outside the home.

I have seen this argument here posted by sheeple before. I totally agree with you by the way. Just because Kate is working, is she doing it alone? Well, she did at sometimes we know of; DWTS, her book signings, when she "guest hosted" on ET, but that about covers it. The rest of the time she was a working mother, outside the home, WITHOUT her kids, was...well, never. A working mother doesn't let her kids make the money for her. It just does not work that way.

I live next to a big city, & see people scamming all the time. They sit there at traffic lights with their sign that says "Will work for food". I'm sure you've all seen this. I have seen it in MY town. Well a couple times, I have seen a mother & her child grifting this way. They look clean, their car is probably parked a few feet away, & they probably bank big bucks by strangers who feel bad that this mother is using her child to scam money because she said she is homeless. I just don't buy it. This scam is all over the country, & this woman knows hows to play the game. She has frigin highlights in her hair & her nails are perfect. (I have researched this scam online. I was curious because I felt bad & gave money at first)

goytyournumberkate, I agree with what you said. Some moms should NOT be moms. They use their children. They have them because they felt they had to (kinda like mine) or in Kate's case, to use them & use them until the well is dry. Or they have them to continue the cycle of abuse. I think people should fill out forms in order to have kids. If you are not mentally capable, or ready, then NO KIDS FOR YOU! And they should invent a pill for all teenagers that would make them sterile until age 25. (Stupid Teen Mom...Aargghh) LOL (long post sorry. :)

Westcoaster said...

Seems to me that in the reality tv world, shows come and go so quickly that you can blink and miss it. I think that this is what is happening with the Kate brand, but I have been wrong about her before. At this point, they have been filming, filming, filming and nothing has been shown since when? She, and the concept, are becoming truly uninteresting - the original idea of how a family with multiples copes in everyday life is long gone - not a lot of interest in the travelogue, and frankly, the excessive $$$ spent to entertain this family probably irritates a rather large chunk of the audience who used to watch, particularly those folks who work hard, or are themselves underemployed, and have no real access to the entitlement perks that the Gosselins get for merely being Gosselins. It's over, or as close to it as a narcissist with a TLC contract can get.

At least I hope so.

It's not illogical. Kate has stated previously that there is a general plan for what they are going to shoot. Somebody has to take the raw footage obtained under that "plan" and turn it into a show with some unifying "story." That's the job of the writer.

Susantoyota said...

I posted the following over at another website, wanted to share my observations over here too.

I finally broke down and watched the Lopez clip. How can Kate look so slim in jeans when picking up the kids and like a sausage in the dress she wore on the show? Oh well.

Anyway, I noticed something on the Lopez clip. My computer runs slow so the video would stop briefly. It seemed to do so at points that would show George's face in a freeze frame. I think the first time was when he was guiding Kate to her seat. Her back was to the camera and he was looking at the audience with a smirk?--like we're going to get thru this guys and then move on to the fun. There were a couple other times that his facial expressions spoke volumes, but it was very quick and Kate didn't seem to notice. I'm not defending George Lopez, but I agree with the other posters that he may not have much control over who is booked on his show due to the 'politics' in show business. I also didn't hear much clapping or laughter from the audience. I'd go back and watch it again, but it's too early in the morning.

I think Kate is freaking out on several levels. More people are aware of her grifting, narcissistic personality, and abusive behavior towards the kids. I think she and TLC are desperate to keep her in the public eye, so that is behind the appearances (and trip with Purseboy)and 'news' items on the Internet about getting back together with Jon, running a marathon, etc. She'd be better off making plans to downsize her house and living expenses as I don't think she'll be in that house next year

E-town Neighbor said...

"SOMEONE SHOULD START TRASHING HIS LOOKS."

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

Why? He's not a 35-year-old, trying to look like a 20-year-old Hollywood celebrity, or a Malibu Ken. He's not wearing pimp clothing, hasn't bleached his hair to a frazzle, turned tangerine, or gotten penile implants...and he's not making his kids WORK to afford those things.

Bottom line -- he doesn't look like a tramp, and he's not using a faux, plastic make-over to attract women.

He may have gained some weight because he's trying to quit smoking. Good for him for making the effort. I hope he's successful. He'll shed that weight, but in the process, he's out there working to support his kids. The same cannot be said about his ex-wife.

Bubbles said...

I'm not a big Jon fan, but at least his looks are how REAL people look when they don't have $7K hair extensions, discolored skin from various tanning options, and plastic surgery to get rid of their "gut." As far as I know the only two cosmetic things Jon has done are teeth whitening and the hair transplant, which were both done at Kate's urging.

These kids know exactly what is expected of them when they arrive on the "set." Editors work with what is filmed, toss out what is not usable footage, and order a re-shoot if necessary in order to execute the original screenplay. If production hasn't gotten enough suitable footage, they re-work the script, and do it again until they get it right. This, of course, is difficult on location, because they might have to return to the original site the next day, and scheduling may conflict with the next day's shoot.

Lindsey said... It's not illogical. Kate has stated previously that there is a general plan for what they are going to shoot. Somebody has to take the raw footage obtained under that "plan" and turn it into a show with some unifying "story." That's the job of the writer.

Hi Lindsey. Writer's have nothing to do with turning "raw footage" into a show. That is the job of film or video editors. Writers are involved much earlier in the process, before and during (if re-writes are necessary) the actual filming. Writers are an integral part of that "general plan," you spoke of. And that "general plan" is more commonly known as a "script."

With or without a safety harness? Hard hat? Wearing stilettos or work boots? You know she'd do it!! She does everything for her kids!! Ok, snark over.

This is exactly why Twist of Kate will never see the light of day. She's a "STAH" and is no longer an ordinary person (in her mind) and would never stoop that low to actually work. I just thought of a quote from Urban Cowboy--"daddy does oil and all that implies" that could be changed for us non-STAHS to sum up Kate. Kate does reality television and all that implies(grifting, child exploitation, abuse of husband and kids, destroyer of relationships with family and friends)etc. Or maybe Kate is NPD and all that implies (grifting, child exploitation, abuse of husband and kids, destroyer of relationships with family and friends).

I love the suggestion of getting Kate and Charlie Sheen together. Can't decide who would run from the other first.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Running would be a nice suggestion, IF you really were concerned but since you don't....STFU!!!

Katie Kreider gives EVERYBODY enough material for years, to critique her behaviors AND, yes, her looks. Let's go there. She's ORANGE, bleached blonde-extensioned, nipped-tucked-lipo suctioned, botoxed. She's desperately trying to recapture her lost 20s because she conned her ex-husband & fertility doctor so she could conceive another set of multiples, conned church members to donate $$ to support their lifestyle, exploited the goodness of the community/government with her entitled pursuit of freebies...so she "deserves everything she has," right? That explains everything.

Jon looks heavier in the roof pictures as he probably is wearing a few layers of clothes. Notice that roofers do not wear coats, they layer. It would make anyone look heavier.

MirrorMirror,

Sticks and stones may break our bones, but you are a sheeple.

Kate has no credibility- NONE, and sorry to say, neither do you.

Jon is a nice man with, or without the gut.

With all the friggin' "work" your Queen of Mean Kate has had, and she's STILL a NASTY, wrinkled, bitter, lonely, dislusional piece of dookie.

Try to have a nice day.

Not Watching said...

When did Jon go on People Magazine to show off his "new" body?? When he does then I'll have plenty to say about it.

If you research the Roloffs (Spiritswander's blog) ther eisa post AND photo of Amy reading a script next to her computer during her "acting." All these shows are scripted and the people given roles to play.

Khates "reality" show is no different. The outline plotted ahead of time, the kids told where to stand, and Khate spews her lines.

Administrator said...

Kate herself has admitted that the college funds are not fully funded and that "sadly" the family is not financially set for life. Those kids have worked five long years, they should be set for life by now. They should have been set for life years ago. Kate has no business putting one press on nail on her pinky finger or one lock of fake hair on her head until her children are financially secure. Until they are, I'm going to protest the self-improvements she is spending the family money on.

barbee said...

let's NOT get ridiculously ridiculous and start comparing Kate and Jon's looks. He had teeth whitening (which SHE horned in on with the comment 'if he gets that, I want it too - like she wants NOBU? and Jon got hair transplants which SHE pushed him into saying he might regret not taking advantage of the offer at a later time - and, of course, SHE had to go too, leaving sick kids with mean (sarcasm) aunt jodie and her own sick kids. HE also DID NOT have a tummy tuck!
Then we have super tramp, she had hair extensions, what-the-hell-ever with her teeth (Chiclets??), tanning on tanning on tanning (doesn't she know layers add to the 'blocky' look her body has?), tummy tuck, lipo, botox, hooker heels and clothes, BOOB JOBS (inflate monthly?), too bad they couldn't do anything about her cankles, wonky eye, horrible posture, wiiiiide wasteline (sp. intentional), ugly disposition, horribly horrible cackle, and lack of intelligence. Hope everyone can tell I AM NOT A SHEEPLE!

barbee said...

Responding to this: love the suggestion of getting Kate and Charlie Sheen together. Can't decide who would run from the other first.

Charlie wouldn't even look at her, she's trashier than his usual stuff. And as far as comparing their careers,
Charlie is wrecking his own life while
Kate is wrecking her kids lives (and ANYONE else she comes in contact with)

If the children aren't working, then WHY DID THE JUDGE LET THEM GO TO AUSTRALIA BECAUSE THE TRIP WAS WORK RELATED?

Thank you!

My question is this. I finally found a link to a story I remembered from a while ago. Did anything ever come of this story? What does this radio host stand to gain by relating it? Nothing, as far as I can see!

This one needs a threat of its own! Of course we knew, predicted that somehow Kate was putting something out there. Why the ridiculous assertion the she would reunite wit Jon? Well, I'll tell you. It's yet another story that Kate has to respond to to "set the record straight' because, you know, she only answers what's out there.
Her response is in People online and without skipping a beat, she insults Jon.
http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20469204,00.html
From the article:
"
And while Jon has been dating Ellen Ross, the still-single Kate has no problem continuing to fly solo. "Kate wants nothing more than to be seen in a completely different light than Jon is viewed," says the source. "Obviously he is the father of her children and that won't change, but she is feeling very happy about her decisions and situation."

She is without shame and you know the "source" is her or her mouthpiece. This came right from the horse's mouth. And, does she honestly think her image is better than Jon's? The guy who's earning an honest living? She puts the dee in delusional.

Gosselin Gossip said...

An excerpt below from an old 2004 article in the Washington Post:

Reality Is Only An Illusion, Writers Say

"We look at reality TV, which is billed as unscripted, and we know it is scripted," said Daniel Petrie Jr., president of the Writers Guild of America-West...Petrie says the reality shows are not written in the traditional sense, like an episode of "Law & Order" or "Will & Grace." But he points to the Paris Hilton-Nicole Richie Fox hit "The Simple Life." "The writers craft the scenes that put the two heroines in fish-out-of-water situations," he said. "When people think of a screenplay or a teleplay, they think of dialogue. But scripts are stories, and storytelling is the most important. It's structure, situation, character."

Also, found this article from Writers Guild of America, West site:

A Day In the Life of a Reality TV Writer

He shares his experience about what a reality tv writer does to create an episode or story arc. His perspective shows how integral writers are in these reality shows.

Additional links pertaining to reality writers can be found at the link on the bottom of this article.

Two of my friends were on an episode of a reality show called the Princes of Malibu, about the Jenner brothers. There was a scene where someone lands a helicopter on the lawn. It was filmed five times. How is that reality if there are multiple takes? There was also what they would call a producer telling them what to do--in the case of the helicopter to clap, act excited. Take two, do it again--clap, act excited. Take three. Take four.

There are first-hand accounts like this one as proof most reality shows are staged in this manner.

Uh, yes they do. Ask a reality TV writer. What you are describing is the role of the writer in dramatic television, not in reality shows such as Kate + 8. From the Writer's Guild of America web site:

"A Day In the Life of a Reality TV Writer

Written by J. Ryan Stradal

When people ask me what I do and I tell them I'm a writer for reality television, their faces usually contort with disquieting confusion.

"How can you write for reality?" they ask. "Those shows are based on real events, right?"

"Sure they are," I'll tell them. "But just because something is real doesn't make it a story."

Hundreds of hours of footage are shot to make a single hour of reality television, and the final cut ultimately is very similar in its narrative structure to scripted television. There is a beginning, middle, and end, with character development, goals, conflict, and resolution. If you've ever been pulled into watching a reality series, it's for the same reasons you get invested in scripted TV: sympathetic characters, interesting settings, and a sequence of events that inspires curiosity.

The difference is in how the source material is generated. We don't get to invent every detail and then hand it to professional actors to enact it strictly according to our specifications. We can only deal with what's already happened–and if you follow anyone around with a camera for long enough, you'll find that most of what they do is distressingly boring–so often our work deals with issues of sequence and context and plausibility. Reality writing is about working backwards from the ending in the most interesting way possible, crafting an inevitable occurrence into the surprise plot twist the viewers want..."

How have you "caught" her? Are you in her house looking over her shoulder as she posts?

url said...

I would think the writers have to be involved after the filming of the original footage is completed and being edited. The additional footage for the voiceovers and couch interviews are scripted also.

I don't believe anything that comes out of Kart's mouth regarding being poor and not having enough money for college or anything else. She's just playing the same old pity card. Interviewers still bringing up her divorce, after it's been finalized over a year ago, is pathetic. If she's not dating, it's because she's with Steve.

Her statement regarding having a nanny 3 1/2 days per week equals approximately 84 hours per week. She probably pays the nanny an hourly rate and someone could be working 12 hours a day. I personally don't think she should be alone with the children in that house. It's just the same garbage about how she does everything herself. She'll never admit how much help she has or that she needs help, especially psychological.

If she's hinting about running in a marathon, TLC will film her running for a few seconds and she'll be paid another $250,000 for that episode. Maybe Steve will run the marathon with her while holding the camera.

Kate Plus 8 has a beginning, middle and end. Beginning--Kate pulls the kids out of school for an all expense paid getaway memory-maker. Middle--Kids whine, complain, cry, and often, vomit.

The Kate lovers want it both ways. After Kate's Alaskan meltdown they were
all saying that Kate actually was out in the cold and rain for hours trying to get 15 minutes of film for the show. Well, which is it ? Just filming an hour of the kids playing or several hours of actual filming for 15 minutes of film for Kate plus 8. They will literally say anything to justify what this woman does or doesn't do.

Administrator said...

Now I finally watched The Talk and I really resent Kate speaking for all moms and insisting that moms wouldn't turn down a reality show. Yes many of them f-ing would Kate. Someone was talking over her but it sounds like Kate said, "I have a hard time believing that." That's because Kate is completely incapable of putting herself in the shoes of anyone else. Not Jon, not the people who think she's a child exploiter, and certainly not her kids. She only perceives the world from her own vantage point. She wants us to understand her, yet cannot understand anyone else would have an opinion different than hers.

Administrator said...

And she cannot even admit that she might have made one little mistake during the divorce. Have a LITTLE bit of humble pie and admit you're not a perfect person and you made some mistakes giving all those interviews about Jon.

No, in her mind she has never bashed their father. She is sooo arrogant!

Administrator said...

According to Kate's lies, Kate has help three and a half days a week, which according to Kate is only "half the week.: Well, half of a full week. But if you consider that Jon is getting these kids a lot of the weekends, then that takes care of most of the weekends. Unless Kate needs a babysitter for herself, but she has Steve for that. So then that means that Kate is only without a babysitter ONE whole day during the school week. And the kids are in school all day! I don't have a problem with help, I have a problem with Kate lying about help and downplaying it. Give some credit to all the people that make your family work.

Call Me Crazy said...

Hey Lindsey,

You have enlightened me about reality writers actually being involved in some post-production work. However, I'm not sure why you think that is some kind of proof that reality shows, including K+8, are not scripted. If anything, having writers involved in post-production creates a situation where the "reality" is even more produced, controlled and contrived, from beginning to end.

Reality show writing may not be in the form of creating dialogue, although this is not uncommon according to these reality writers:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5LBT2cGwMLI&feature=related

but it is all about manipulating actions to create a storyline. In the case of K+8, anyone who thinks the children are just running in and out of the frame whenever and however they please are deluding themselves.

Lindsey, what is most chilling in that piece you quoted are the following words:

"Hundreds of hours of footage are shot to make a single hour of reality television, and the final cut ultimately is very similar in its narrative structure to scripted television."

So let's crunch some numbers based on the children filming 120 episodes in their tiny lives.

We'll use a conservative estimate that it took 100 hours of filming per episode (definitely a low number considering that cameras were set up in the children's bedrooms to film them 24/7 for a time).

So, 100 hours x 120 episodes = 12,000 hours of filming. There are about 8,765 hours in a year. This means that the children have spent almost an entire year and a half of their short lives with cameras in their faces stealing their privacy. How can anyone justify this?

Don't forget to add to this the additional hours of travel time to get to all the different shooting locales, otherwise known as "vacations" or "culturing experiences."

No matter how hard Kate's fans may try to sugarcoat the facts, this is completely indefensible.

As an aside, if anyone is interested in reality TV editing, here is a great clip by Charlie Brooker showing how easily "reality" can be constructed and changed to fit a storyline:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BBwepkVurCI

Have a great night, all. Admin, I'm glad you are on the mend.

I wasn't trying to "prove" anything. I responded to a post saying that it was illogical for kids to be running in and out of shots spontaneously on a show with a writer because the person has the "write something." That was not a statement of fact. I'm not going to play a semantics game regarding the term "scripted." A reality show is not "scripted" in the same manner that a dramatic television show is. I never claimed that reality TV is a bunch of raw footage thrown on the air. Of course the footage is crafted into some type of story.

mama mia said...

Kate gets by in life lying on technicalities. We all know reality shows have producers and writers who carve stories out of boring events. Kate willingly went along for the money pretending her marriage was intact, pretending she did housework and cared for her children by herself, lies, lies, lies.

OT, somewhat. On another thread, there was an interesting discussion concerning who owned bloggers' comments. This was in regards to the owner of another blog who posted comments in a book without the blogger's permission. Apparently, according to this person, parts of the book have now been edited, and those posts (that were lifted from the blog and included in the book) were removed before the book goes to print.

The internet is uncharted territory in regards to who owns what; what constitutes plagiarism, as well as the rights of bloggers. Until a case presents itself and a ruling is made, it seems that it is best to safe rather than sorry.

In my estimation, Kate is responsible for the kids for 2 hrs in the morning and 3 hrs in the evening, and 61 hours on the weekends. 61 + 25 is 85 hours.

Assuming she means literally 3 1/2 days, that's 84 hours.

Yep, Kate is "telling the truth" about having a babysitter "only 3 1/2 days" while at the same time managing to give the impression she works so hard.

[My calculations are based on:
kids sleeping 10 hrs per day (7:30p-5:30a)
school 9 hrs per day (7:30a-4:30p incl bus time)
weekends (4:30p Fri-5:30a Mon)]

Administrator said...

Jon is a little chubby. He is working for his kids now and not the other way around, therefore he has earned the right for his appearance to be none of our business. When Kate starts supporting her children on her own merit and stops relying on them to make the rent, she will earn the same. Also, dealing with a parental alienator is very stressful and time consuming. I've seen many people balloon 10 times the way he has and really let themselves go. Fighting in family law court takes its toll on the body.

As far as Kate running eight miles a day, she could easily destroy her knees in only a few years time on all that hard pavement.

Troy Chula Vista said...

Lets just put that rumor to rest. I doubt very seriously she runs 8 miles in a month! She did say she had a treadmill in the basement, but still 8 miles a day is BS. That takes dedication, hard work and consistency to build up to ANY mileage you run. Everyone has seen first hand what Kate's work ethic is, whine and cry and put it off.

When J & K were together, I saw the episode where they went to the snow. When they were showing her "sick" on the couch and she couldnt do anything to help, I said to my wife she is SOOOOOOOO faking it. Sure enough, next scene she is up and ready for her mani-pedi with her assistant (not sure who she was). Point is, saying you run 8 miles is easy, actually doing it is another and an insult to all the hard working dedicated runners out there. Plus, wouldnt her legs/thighs be a LOT less thick from all that running? Sorry for rant. Shouldn't troll at BM site reading insane logic before coming to my fav blog!

Regarding Jon's looks - well right now it doesn't seem that his physical appearance is his top priority, his kids are. Jon's physical appearance is reality - he'd rather spend time with his kids on the weekends than going to the gym. And, as Admin noted, stress takes a toll on one's body also.

Jamie recently married a physician. They are probably choosing to live privately. If so, I say good for them! They certainly don't want to be separated during their first year of marriage, I would think.

My question is did Kate attend the wedding? Did she serve as an attendant/witness, even if it was a courthouse wedding? There was no info
of her making a trip to Michigan, was there?

Don't know why comments aren't going through, I'm rejecting very little if any from regulars who know the rules by now.

As far as Jamie it sounds like she mooched off Kate when she was going through her divorce and single period. Once she found someone Kate was left in the dust and she got a real family, as well she should. Kate seems to have a very romantic, unrealistic view of friendship. With eight kids there's just no way a friend could be there the way Kate seems to want them to without sacrificing their own family. For every trip to NY or LA or what have you when Kate leaves the kids, Steve is leaving his kids too.

That was their trip to Utah. The woman with K8 was Beth, her BFF at the time and also the TRUE author of Multiple Blessings. Beth was not shown on any episodes after that trip, I think K8's behavior was the straw that broke the camel's back.

K8 blubbered like an idiot on the plane, had no intention of seeing her children ski for the first time, whined about being ill so she didn't have to help Jon get all 8 kids dressed in winter gear.......but miraculously recovered just in time for her spa treatments. B*tch.

And yes, K8 would look a lot leaner if she actually ran 8 miles a day (which is a lot).

Jon: at least his photos are not photo-shopped. He is who he is.

Ingrid said...

Another idea on her 3.5 days a week sitter. Has anyone heard if John has them most/all weekends? If so, then her "week" is only 5 days long or 120 hrs. Her time without a sitter would only be 1.5 days (36 hrs) or approx. 7 hrs a day. But that is not saying when--day or night time, kids at home or kids at school time.

84 hrs for a 5 day week is about 16 hrs a day. That would cover alot of hours that Khate tries/lies to say she does it all and Khate's share could be very little of the time that normal mom's would spend time with their kids. I could picture Her Orangishness only making an obligatory visit for an hour or so and the rest of the time the kids are sleeping or at school.

I hope if Kate runs a marathon, there is someone keeping an eye on her so she doesn't just run 10 min at the beginning, hop in a car and run 10 min. at the end. (while being filmed of course!)

Ingrid, it reminds me of children who were raised in royal houses in the mid 20th century and earlier. For example, it is said that Prince Charles saw his Mum for an hour a day before bed. The rest of the time he was being schooled or being cared for by the nanny. A true story is that Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip returned from a long voyage, Charles was there to meet them, and he saluted but otherwise ignored them, not realizing those were his parents. He hadn't seen them in so long.

My dear mother used to say "She's good at Queening, not so good at Mothering". (Mom was a British subject, who actually liked the monarchy, by the way.)

Kate's good at something, I'm sure, but it's not mothering.

Administrator said... Don't know why comments aren't going through, I'm rejecting very little if any from regulars who know the rules by now.

As far as Jamie it sounds like she mooched off Kate when she was going through her divorce and single period. Once she found someone Kate was left in the dust and she got a real family, as well she should. Kate seems to have a very romantic, unrealistic view of friendship. With eight kids there's just no way a friend could be there the way Kate seems to want them to without sacrificing their own family. For every trip to NY or LA or what have you when Kate leaves the kids, Steve is leaving his kids too
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Wouldn't that be ironic if Jamie abandoned Kate just like Kate abandoned her own family i.e. Jodie, Her own parents, Jon's mother etc....

Ingrid said...

Fidosmom That sounds like such a sad life for a child.

I believe Kate might be good at something too but I am straining to think of what. LOL

Gosselin Gossip said...

Sadiemay said... Why aren't my comments seeing the light of day. They are just opinions on the Gosselin's. No rules broken and I have used the same name since coming here but my comments have not been showing up for the most part in the last week or so.

I noticed some of your comments were posted upthread.

I've experienced delay issues when posting comments sometimes. Other people's comments appear after the time of my original post, but if I check after an hour or so, they eventually appear with the correct time stamp.

Sounds like the same thing might be happening with you. It's probably something admin can't fix, but it can be annoying at times.

8 miles my ass. said...

Troy Chula Vista said... Lets just put that rumor to rest. I doubt very seriously she runs 8 miles in a month!

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

Agreed, Troy. As a life-long runner (going on 20+ years), I can say with some certainty that Kate is spewing more lies when she claims that she runs 8 miles a day. Her stint on DWTS, as well as photo-ops of her "jogging," clearly show a body that is out of shape and not fit. I don't care how "thin" Kate is ... being "fit" and "in shape" are separate issues from what one weighs on a scale. Kate is NOT in shape, and her body is a far cry from one who runs 8 miles a day. Additionally, from a couple videos I saw of Kate lumbering along near her home, the woman doesn't have a runner's physique or the correct stride necessary to maintain that type of distance. She plods. There's no way she could maintain 8 miles stomping along on those tree-trunk legs (which, by the way, would be way leaner if she actually did run as much as she claims to). Sorry, Kate ... just more lies. So sad that the Sheeple eat this crap up. Kate's an affront to real moms who honestly carve out time in their busy days to exercise FOR REAL (along with actually caring for their kids, homes, pets, jobs, etc. etc.).

The woman is a fraud on all fronts. She needs to franken-walk off into the sunset once and for all.

AuntieAnn said...

I would say good for schmoopy if she's running eight miles a day. In Katespeak that would be very 'healthful' and especially so if you're a smoker. I'd even like to believe her but I think she runs those eight miles in her head, just like everything else she says she does. She thinks if she says so, it is so.

@K8SUCKS -- Thanks, but not mine. It's an old elephant/sheep/tampon joke. We won't go there. ha!

Of course Kart posts here.... said...

In the posts asking how admin/anonymous??? knows it was Kate who was posting, isn't there a way to back track to the IP address?

I'm not sure, so someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I do think there is a way to know if someone is posting under different screen names but the posts are coming from a single computer...

The only question then is how to know that the IP address in question actually belongs to Kart...

I agree that she trolls and often posts using various screen names... how could she not?! Her nacisicism must get the better of her (oxymoron?) and she responds in a huff to something she doesn't like.

Hi Kart!

Of course Kart posts here.... said...

Oops...... I meant Narcissism - can't spell tonight. :-(

mama mia said...

Kate does not run 8 miles per run, or 8 miles per hour, or any of the feats she claims and hints at. These are lies she tells herself to feel significant. I have no doubt she'll enter a marathon and cheat, get driven to the finish line, and pose all panting and out of breath, cause that is her character.

roxyhelen said...

Of course Kart posts here.... said...
Yes, there is a way to know the same person is posting under different names.I bet if Admin banned say..MirrorMirrorOnTheWall we wouldn't see comments from are you kidding me ,give me a break,double standards and many other posters lol...

Hippie Chick said...

Agreed roxyhelen...

I'll bet Kate posts on the anti-blog sites often for funsies. Hell, if I were a celeb, & there were anti-sites against me, I would probably do the same thing, well at least I would check them. I do not believe the celebs that say they don't read anything bad anything bad about themselves, except for maybe Tina Fey, people like that, ya know, the smart ones. Kate does NOT fit into that category.

It would not surprise me in the least if she trolls over here, & Admin, because you are so nice & let all viewpoints fly, she is allowed to post. The sheeple's posts are well, not always very well thought out & defensive & mean. Kate in a nutshell. Can you imagine if we've been arguing with Kate herself? How frigin funny is that? We have shot her down so many times...about herself! (IF in fact it's her) She HAS contradicted herself about the fact that she reads about herself, first she does, the she doesn't, then she does. Lies, lies lies...again. We'll find out someday I'm sure, when a nanny tattles, or her kids. Or a computer savvy person figures it out...Fun! Hi Kate, you know you're wrong about everything right? RIGHT? Oh, & get a stylist.

K8SUCKS said...

roxyhelen-

Yep, so incredibly transparent and obvious.

How do you know how far or how fast she runs?

fidosmommy said...

Well, I for one DO believe Kate jogs/runs 8 miles a day, if not more.

She jogs around the truth.
She jogs around her kids' needs.
She runs around looking for attention.
She runs around looking for someone to blame.

She's actually a champion, wouldn't you say?

SmileyGrl752 said...

She's actually a champion, wouldn't you say?

____________________

Believe it or not, Kate DOES exercise.

*She jumps to conclusions (she thought she was going to be in Hollywood and be an actress)

*She stretches the truth

* She gets her heart rate going when she gets angry

* She exercises her lungs by yelling at the kids

I'd say she's a champion, all right. A champ tramp. (Sorry, guess that was kinda mean).

**************************************************
I agree with you Hippie Chick.
Well they would first have to read it to know if it was good or bad.
When Kate said that 99% of what was written was lies, she would have had to read 100% of it to make that statement. That also says that anything good that was written about her (???Sheeple stuff?) was all lies too. Well perhaps she was right for once. :) Hope you are all healed up Admin.

Carol said...

I am thinking that maybe she meant she runs 1 mile in 8 minutes LOL

mia mama said...

Why would Kate read here? Why waste her time? Plus I don't even think she knows this cesspool exists. She has too much class for that.

Administrator said...

If Kate doesn't read what is said about her, how does she know 99% of what is said about her is untrue? She constantly traps herself in her own lies. The nice thing about telling the truth is you never have to remember anything.

Administrator said...

Yes Mia when I think of Kate Gosselin the first thing I think class.

Gimme a break, she doesn't have a classy bone in her body.
