Go away, you witch Khatezilla, go away...NOW. We are all SICK to death of you.

AuntieAnn said...

This is the ONLY clip in the "hx" of Kate clips that I enjoy watching over and over. Just too bad she scared the hell out of her kids. Unfortunately they'll hear the same sobbing when the show is cancelled.

Thanks Admin. And Thank You BRAD!!!! I think I love you.

Fahnette said...

Hopefully the kids will have some good emotional support when Mommy completely breaks.

Marie said...

What will this truly mean for HER show? Do we dare hope yet this will be the last season? Or do we have to cringe through until 2012 as the contract stated?

Either way folks, no show lasts forever and Kate is kidding herself if she ever thought she could keep herself/kids on tv until they are 18, just is not going to happen, be realistic!

I seriously wonder what Kate is going to do when her "career," of reality tv/co-hosting days are long over. Become a nurse again? Good luck. A lot of us would LOVE to see her downsize again into a reasonable home, with a reasonable car and salary from a REAL job. Just wait and see, time will tell, her little house of cards will fall one by one and she'll have nobody to blame but herself!

Nobody Likes a Narcissist said...

Ha ha, perfect clip, Admin! But, damm, do I feel sorry for those kids.


So, in Khate Twitter-speak - YAY! She sure did beat her all time low of last week!

Here’s the FULL RECAP of K+8:

(Down over a million viewers from last September).

God. She's just a huge asshole. No one forced her to do that damn sky jump thing. I don't see any gun being held to her head.

No one deserves such massively sinking ratings more than her. No one deserves to fall off the public radar more than her.

Thank you to everyone for not tuning in. Poor kids, their mother is a talentless laughingstock who will soon be broke.

I was talking to an old friend today, I haven't seen her in a while and we were catching up. She mentioned DWTS and "how nice it is this season since that horrid Kate woman is gone." I nearly choked on my tea. My friend is THE sweetest 65 year old lady you could ever meet. I've rarely ever heard her say a negative word about anyone, but when I asked her if she meant Kate Gosselin, she expounded at length as to her opinion of her, and lemme tell ya: it wasn't good at all. When you've got ladies as sweet as my friend snarling at the very memory of you, that's bad.

Linda G. said...

Nobody:

That's a pretty sharp AND steady decline.

So at this rate, the May 30 episode (if it airs) will have under a half a million viewers.

What kills me are her fans on Twitter celebrating 9000 followers. First of all, that's pathetic for someone currently on TV who announced their twitter account on national TV AND is known to tweet followers. Suuuuuper pathetic.

Secondly, you think TLC or their advertisers give a flying wet fart about 9000 followers on TWITTER??? They care about ratings, revenue, cost versus profit, the end.

AuntieAnn said...

Nobody Likes -- I just want to bring up your comment from the previous thread

"My next prediction: Khate unloads the big house in a short sale."

I think you could be very right, and I predict she'll unload the kids on Jon in keeping with her pattern of pitching the people who are of no more use to her into that black hole.

silimom said...

And Kate will blame it on the death of Osama bin Laden. And if memory serves, the next episode comes out on Memorial Day weekend. That's usually a time of traveling for many but with gas prices what they are, we may see a spike as people stay home to save money.

Does this mean the end? In the long term, yes if the numbers continue to decline but I don't think it will happen until the end of this year. TLC will only pull the plug when the show stops attracting advertising dollars. I hope they had it written into the contract that they could walk away if her show falls below a certain number of viewers, but only time will tell.

Nobody Likes a Narcissist said...

Oh, I forgot to add that the show is down over 2.7 million since its debut in June 2010.

Looking at the numbers for 2010, I'm wondering if the contract was for eight episodes last year so that would mean they have four more episodes to show this year.

Another thing I was thinking - as is usually the case with narcissists, Khate really did herself in. How? Because she refused to let go of this show when its time came, which was when the divorce began. Had she called it off then because the kids needed privacy during the divorce and they were getting older anyway, she would have gone out on top with good ratings. So, that would have at least helped her to maybe parlay that ratings success into some sort of tv venture on her own. But, she held on and now with ratings in a steady free fall, she will not look marketable to anyone in tv or elsewhere. Oh well, too bad, so sad.

"I'm sleeping
And right in the middle of a good dream
When all at once I wake up
From something that keeps knockin' at my brain.
Before I go insane
I hold my pillow to my head
And spring up in my bed
Screaming out the words I dread:
"I think I love you!"

JoyinVirginia said...

Bye! The endless travelogues have become so boring, everyone has been chased away by the endless screaming repetition.
Many shows are more entertaining, and on May 2 John Stewart was hilarious with the Daily Show becoming the Bye-bye Osama show! Look at it on Comedy Central webite.

Pants On Fire said...

I just watched an extended clip of the tower jump on YouTube.

What an utter disgrace of a mother she is. Flopping all her fake boobage up there on the tower and also on the interview couch.

Fake bawling in a fake heap after her jump.....UGH!

Shocking, it wasn't filmed?! That's a first!

Administrator said...

She likes to take them somewhere once a year and NOT film it? My God how generous of her to give the kids one time each year spent with her that is not filmed. Thank God they actually did something that wasn't filmed, but this woman needs to get a grip.

Anyway I call bullshit, it wasn't filmed because TLC has put a hault on filming until they figure out where these horrid ratings are going to go. Also, don't they have school and summer vacation starts just next month? Why in the world is she pulling them out of school for a family trip NOW? Odd.

It kills me to think she might be holding back on signing these kids up for summer camp, day camp, swimming, soccer, and all the wonderful summer activities because TLC doesn't know when or if they're going to film the crap out of them or what the schedule is. She said herself they talked about potential trips in the meeting but nothing is set yet. By the time she realizes TLC isn't going to send her on multiple summer trips of a lifetime all summer like last year, all the summer camp spots will be filled. Ugh.

Nobody Likes a Narcissist said...

One more thing about the ratings:

- This week's audience is only 52% the size of April 4th's audience
- Even worse, this week's audience is only 20% of the audience the show had in June of 2010.

Now, what network would possibly stick with a show that has lost 80% of its audience from last year, and 48% of its audience from a only a month ago?

prairiemary said...

First I have seen of her "fall"-first thing I noticed was the expression on poor Mady's face, as she ran to her stupid mother. How could kate be so cruel? Those kids are still so very young, and have gone thru so much, did she really have to cause such a scene?
I still have a hard time understanding just why the sheeple think she will be broke without this show? She had tons of money saved before the divorce, she had quite a few different bank accounts, Jon told us this on one of the episodes.kate is very, very immature, dramatic,just plain stupid, EXCEPT with her money, then I think she is crazy like a fox, she no doubt has a lot of money tucked away in various places. I would be very shocked to find out anything different. I don't think she has college money for the kids, but has all that she will ever need for herself,and herself only. I could be very wrong, but to me it fits her ND personality.

Kart's Possible Excuses.... on and on and on... said...

Lordy bee, I just hope the talk shows don't have her on to let her cry about "why the show ended".....

I don't think I could stand to see her with her prop purse beside her as she whines:

1. She has bills in her Prada purse that she can't pay, and Jon won't pay them for her.

2. It just isn't fair that her kids will now have to be pulled out of their school and *gasp* go to public school with ***eeeuuww*** "other regular kids.

3. She'd like to go back to nursing but no one will give her an interview. And besides, she just couldn't stand touching sick and germy patients. She'd only accept a senior management position (that her diploma nursing certificate qualifies her for - NOT).

4. Jon isn't helping out... she's out of work and he's got a paycheck, he should be paying for everything.

5. Purseboy, "like everyone else in her life" has left her.

6. The damned economy tanked on purpose right now just so she can't sell her house.

7. TLC made her do it.

8. She is going to sue TLC.

9. She got a parking ticket, FOR REAL, for parking in the fire lane at the liquor store. How dare they ticket her, don't they know who she is, and besides, she just lost her job so that should give her immunity.

10. How is she going to pay for the plastic surgery she has scheduled?

11. She'll hint around at 'bad things' going on at TLC... not overt 'throwing them under the bus stuff" but they edited the show to make her look bad, etc....

MARK MY WORDS... if she can get on any forum, she's not going to go down quietly!

Unless..................... she goes critical mass and ends up at a "spa" for 3-6 months....

Hopefully this will tip the apple Kart far enough that Jon can go back to court and get custody.

We can only hope.

I feel guilty.... I am conflicted. Torn between wanting to see her publically crash and burn because of what she's done to the kids, actually recognizing and taking responsibility for her actions...... and never hearing anything at all about her ever again.

Miss Manners would be appalled at my conflict and would remind me that even pathetic idiots deserve some privacy.

So I guess I'll be a high-road-taker and wish her well............ gaaaaaaaaaggggg.... sorry, that caught in my throat.

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

Yet another PERFECT example of Kate not being able to see the forest through the trees. You are spot on, in the long run, it would have been better for Kate to end the show with dignity, on a high note, and then segway that into bigger and better things.

But like most narcissists, she wants what she wants when she wants it how she wants it. She can't think ahead more than two chess moves and make strategic choices with her career. Everything has to be used and abused and run into the ground before she cuts it loose.

It's like how actors pass on a big budget movie that would pay them millions because the timing is not just right, and instead do a low budget independent. We all know why they do this and why it's often beneficial and in the long run a great call. You have to make strategic choices in Hollywood. No one has a crystal ball and you don't always do the best thing, but it's rarely a wise choice to go on and on and on with a show until it doesn't have even a shred of dignity left.

Nobody Likes a Narcissist said...

Admin, I totally agree with you about this being b.s. WHY pull the kids out of school for another week? Especially when they missed a week or two in January and school is out for summer break next month? I bet TLC booked a trip (probably to film another birthday like last year). If it really was NOT filmed, then it's only because TLC pulled out based on the ratings.

It's also odd timing to squeeze in a trip in between flying somewhere for a meeting with TLC, then come home, fly somewhere "west" with kids for a private vacation, come home one night, then fly out again tomorrow (?) to be away for a few days for the Kentucky Derby.

Gee, it's so funny that the superstah flew on planes and stayed somewhere with NO paparazzi at all, and nobody noticing them and tweeting as has happened in the past.

Also, I still say it's awfully interesting that Iwana went away the same time Khate did. Iwana is either Khate, Jamie, or Steve. Jamie or Steve were with her, so she or he couldn't tweet either.

By the way, she's twittering up a storm again right now, getting her fix in.

PatK said...

How nice that she and Daddy Steve took the little girls out of school and dragged them out West for a little non-filming together time.

Now that she's back, methinks the tweeting binge will continue if her tweeting frenzy tonight is any indication.

Administrator said...

I also find it odd not one facebooker or tweeter said they saw them this whole "trip" out "west" and not one pap photo.

Either she is lying. Or, gee wiz, you mean they CAN have a normal vacation and be normal kids and no one bothers them?

And again yes the timing is ODD. These kids miss enough school already not to be pulled out for non-filming vacations. It could have been a vacation that was going to be filmed that TLC backed out of and since Kate had already told the kids she was going to take them, forked over the dough and took them anyway so they wouldn't have tantrums. Also so she herself wouldn't have a tantrum. Or it might have been a freebie filming or not since sometimes nice places will give celebs freebies just to be able to say celeb X stayed here and you should to.

Moose Mania said...

Are these kids ever going to know anything other than traveling? Is she teaching them nothing about the importance of education, and that you just don't up and leave school whenever you darn well feel like it?
School is over in four weeks. They couldn't wait until then?

Administrator said...

Let me get this straight, she can afford to take the girls on vacations all the way out west, but she can't manage to get them into gymnastics?

Oh right because she wants the trip too and if the girls benefit it's incidental. But there's no benefit to Kate to put them in gymanstics, if anything it's a detriment since they'll get attention and not Kate. What a complete lunatic.

Is Homeschooling a Possibility? said...

Could be that she doesn't care how many days they miss because she has plans to homeschool them soon.

Just a thought...

If she's not getting those "big TLC paychecks" she won't be able to afford the "fancy private school"........

Devils Advocate said...

The Fans are telling Kate all the gossip, speculation and every single thing said about her on twitter while she was gone. They are like little children tattling to mommy.

I do think Kate was alone with the 3 little girls "out west." She might have tweeted "flight" when she was really driving to throw off the paps. I do think she tweets things to sound evasive and keep the speculation going.

I think if WE stopped speculating on her every move, her tarnished star would die down sooner. This last weeks round of guesses was embarrassing.

Administrator said...

Let's start with making sure the kids know who the sitting president is before Kate considers homeschooling as an option.

Wouldn't that be irony of all ironies? Kate finally pulls them out of school so she can film the crap out of them, only to have TLC yank her show. Now she's stuck with eight kids at home and no show to keep them busy making money for her.

Ingrid said...

IF she really went on this trip with the girls and no cameras I say Yay! for the kiddies... but without photographs for proof she could have lied and just took a trip without them for whatever reason. There is no way to know if she is telling the truth or just trying to change her image because of all those who say she never does anything without cameras.

There has been no previous mention of a yearly trip with 'small groups' before has there? Like on talk shows or in articles?

TLC ship is sinking said...

Also, don't they have school and summer vacation starts just next month? Why in the world is she pulling them out of school for a family trip NOW? Odd.

My 'sediments' exactly! She couldn't wait until summer vacation to go on another trip? How many trips is this now where she pulls the kids out of school for a vacation? I'm surprised that this was actually not filmed, but I cannot give her credit for doing this while school is still in session.

Maybe Kate had to get away because of all the 'stress' she received lately from her declining show; instead of just wanting to spend quality time with her girls. It reminds me of the scene in The Nanny Diaries where Mrs. X goes off to the spa after her husband stood her up on their anniversary. She abandons her son, who ends up with a high fever, and leaves him with the nanny only to return when she receives good news from her husband. The sheeple don't care that Kate abandoned her other five kids, probably leaving them with a nanny?

Is this just coincidence this trip comes up right after the TLC meeting?

Kate sure has the balls to start tweeting after the latest ratings (lowest ever) were released today. I thought it would be another no tweet night. Was there no repeat tonight for a tweet party? Guess Kate has even given up on her own show...lol.

Devils Advocate said...

I need to proof read.

I meant she might have been driving that particular day, not driving out west.

What I meant to say is I don't think all her tweets are honest. She likes to throw people off.

Holy crap, I thought she was done, but she just did 20 more tweets.

Nobody Likes a Narcissist said...

Whoops, my mistake, there aren't any more, thank goodness. Sheesh, she's baaaacckkkk! Kind of like a cockroach that just won't die.

Administrator said...

Um, it's not "ridiculous" about TLC limiting Kate's twitter-twatter. Matt Roloff himself said that TLC restricted his social networking activities. ALL networks do this to some extent.

Look on the bright side, if she's back to a tweet every 30 seconds at least we're back to the entertainment. Isn't it like 3am there? Heck we're in bed here.

Nobody Likes a Narcissist said...

Well, she must still be on west coast time. She did 20 tweets between 1:22 am and 1:41 am.

Is it me or is it weird that she said she does not own a camera other than her iphone? What mom, let alone one with eight kids, doesn't have a camera? Oh yeah, that's right, a mom who constantly as a tv crew at her disposal to capture all the precious "memories".

Something really doesn't smell right about this trip. Leave five kids home with sitters and pull three out of school for a private vacation when ALL these people ever do is travel! Khate just hates staying in that house, doesn't she? I don't know, I still wouldn't be surprised if she's totally bullsh*tting and she was on vacation with boobyguard. I'm sure if they are a couple, that they want to go away alone sometimes.

TLC ship is sinking said...

Are these kids ever going to know anything other than traveling? Is she teaching them nothing about the importance of education, and that you just don't up and leave school whenever you darn well feel like it?

Kate's excuse for these 'working vacations' is that they provide the kids life experiences and are educational. However, they're not. Not for her kids.

I've heard the argument for homeschooling where parents say their kids learn more from taking them to these historical places instead of reading about it in a book. If the Gosselin kids were actually learning something educational from these trips, then I might see Kate's point. However, reading the blogs and recaps about what happened in these episodes, it doesn't sound like the kids learned much from these life experiences. If they can't recall what they learned for these interviews, then the kids missed out on gaining anything from these educational trips. It's possible that they might be too young, but I've also known many kids at their age who are like sponges, basically soaking in all this info and can't wait to tell others about it. And I'm not referring to privileged kids only.

"Well,I do it a few times a yr bc of small groups&is great2 get away. truly a joy..we have so much fun reconnecting."

I understand taking a few kids at a time, but "reconnecting"? Why were they disconnected in the first place? I call BS on doing this a 'few times a yr' and, I call BS again on the underlying cause of the trip -- this woman wouldn't take her kids to see the Statue of Liberty without TLC making all the arrangements and paying for it, so no way was this a planned outing for Kate and a few tups. The purpose for this trip was something other than bonding with her youngest girls and they just went along because she was going somewhere anyway.

But -- why pull them out of school -- AGAIN? wth is wrong with her (especially when one supposedly just returned to the classroom)? ugh

Kate's excuse for these 'working vacations' is that they provide the kids life experiences and are educational. However, they're not. Not for her kids.
.................

Unfortunately, these kids never stick around in one place to learn anything - except action, cut, marker, rolling, close up, move into frame, shush mommy is talking, and instead of memories, the kids will only remember them as season (X) and episode (Y).

Oh boy those drunk tweets scream Organic Junmai Sake loud and clear.

For someone whose show is sinking and with an unknown financial future, she's sure in denial. I wouldn't be "going west" with the girls. I'd be looking in the classifieds.

Admin, you are so right. She sounds so entitled with her 1x a year "non-filmed" travel plans. NPD Queen she is.

Yes, Kate, we all remember how you hated that particular camera as it wouldn't work properly. We ALL also remember at Christmas when Jon gifted you a brand new camera that you squealingly said you LOVE!!!!!! God that woman is so full of bullshit her corneas are turning brown. Sure she was "west";just a bit west of wherever she lives. Doesn't necessarily mean she was "out west".

gotyournumberKate said...

I really think the Alaska episode really hurt Kate. Any reasonable thinking person who watched that had to be totally disgusted by her behavior. Sarah Palin has a very conservative following and any one of them that still though Kate Gosselin was a good, Christian mother saw the truth on the camping episode. Any "redeeming" Kate tired to do after that was lame.

Thanks for the clip, Admin. It makes me sick the way she took the glory away from the twins and as always made it all about her. I've never seen such a spectacle.

Funny how now she takes the kids away with her own money after it has been brought up several times on Twitter. Sort of like saying she went to church after so many were asking her on Twitter if she went. So many lame attempts to redeem herself now. If she even did go to church that week I doubt she's gone since nor will she go again. Like I've said many times, she's so transparent it's not funny and the sheeple are so gullible and stupid. They really do deserve each other.

BerksPa said...

What I don't understand is why did she say she now wants to know all the gossip?
I thought she blocked the non-sheeple and didn't care what they said about her. Now it's all "Tell me about it".
Something is odd about this whole thing. (well, more odd than usual)

I think she needs that narcissistic fix and any attention (even bad attention) gives it to her because people are still talking about what she is or isn't doing.

Furthermore:
A mom who is actively involved in her young child's (children's) lives doesn't need a vacation get away to 'reconnect' with 6 year olds (almost 7). Those children should be the center of their mother's world. Seriously, Something seems so off about this whole thing.

Hippie Chick said...

I watched. BOO HOO.

As for the ratings, TLC won't keep her if her if her ratings continue to decline. TV execs have broken contracts before. No one is above that.

Just Dwindle Away said...

She wont go quietly. And TLC will want to keep her happy so that they can have access to the kids for the next 12 years. SOMEONE will have access to those kids, they are they only thing Kate has left to pimp out, and let's face it - folks will always want to see how they are doing. So TLC will take some steps to keep Kate happy.

So, to try to bring up ratings, look for:

Kate visits Octomom "to roll up her sleeves and see what she can do to help."

Kate poses for Playboy.

Kate reunites the kids with her mom/Kevin/Jodie/Beth, etc. Take your pick.

Kate allows camera access to her pedicures as she 'rolls out a new initiative' of toenail polish.

Kate, to make ends meet, opens a day care in her house and "the cameras are there to catch all the fun!!!"

What is wrong with people? One reported that a "hater" was going to the Derby and "be careful". I got news for them, there will probably be SEVERAL 'haters' there. Duh. Plus, I would worry about fans who demand to be tweeted to first. "Haters" will stay clear, not get close. Geez. These people are truly immature and naive.

my kids come first said...

I don't believe for 1 second that she took any kids with her. I believe that she "needed" her usual tune-up. Botox, lipo, tan, mani, pedi, spa...
Saying that she brings some of the kids - in her mind - makes her a good mother. She knows that she is a horrible mother, she just doesn't care. Her care and concern are for Kate. Period.

JudyK said...

Administrator said... I also find it odd not one facebooker or tweeter said they saw them this whole "trip" out "west" and not one pap photo.
*************************************
VERY ODD that not a single pap caught the GREAT KATE GOSSELIN out with her little girls and didn't snap a pic and even more odd that she did not take nor does she own a camera. Also odd that her big night out with her non-existent girlfriends produced no photos. SHE IS A LIAR. And reading the above twitters, she sounds both immature and manic. I didn't think I could despise her more than I already did, but I was wrong. She is WORTHLESS.

No regrets said...

h8k8 said...Yes, I caught that "reconnecting" thing too. Weird thing to say. No one even questioned the idea that the girls were taken out of school. That is a good question, why? It makes no sense at all. She surely is sending a message that school does not matter, just travel! Hard to believe she makes a trip without TLC paying the bill. I call BS too. I would love to see her take the kids somewhere PRIVATELY without filming, but this sounds really contrived. And it makes no sense. Too bad this woman has no creditability at all, with ME at least.

ADMIN, I love her statement about her doing what SHE wants to do, talking on Twitter, without TLC telling her what to do. Delusional. LOL

Linda G. said...

Oh please, what a load of bollocks she's spewing all over everyone. It's obvious she reads the criticisms of her here, there and everywhere: just recently people were asking why she can't take a trip with her kids on her own damn dime and suddenly ta-da, she does?

Give me a big, fat break. We've all seen this woman in action for years and the most likely scenario is she was off getting some self-maintenance done for the Derby.

Besides, Jon just tweetednthat he went clothes shopping with "the girls" on May 1, so unless he specifically meant only the twins, she's busted.

She's never once taken just a few of those kids on a trip with her. Why start now? Why be gone and out of touch when her show so desperately needs ratings?

And not a single pap got a single pic, not a single PERSON got even a cellphone pic, which proves either the trip was a lie or she CAN move about
the country with the kids with no one noticing or caring.

She's soooooooo full of it.

By the way, there's a great comment from someone who I guess works in TV production over on another site who points out that networks can get out of contracts for any number of reasons, including low ratings. The star person HAS to fulfill their contract if the network wants them to, but the network can pull the plug anytime. Paul Reiser's show got TWO episodes in the middle of the fantastic NBC Thursday night lineup and was yanked, cancelled for low ratings. TWO. I'm quite sure he was on the hook for at least six episodes, but NBC could can it after just two.

I'm quite sure TLC is savvy enough to have the same contracts. Just because they've filmed something doesn't mean they have to use it. She can keep up the facade all she wants on Twitter, the numbers that really matter don't lie.

No regrets said...

If these ratings do not tell TLC something, I don't know what else they need. They surely have not listened to people who complained all this time about this shrew and especially around the time of the divorce. That was the worst decision I have ever seen for a tv show, to remain on the air during a time like that. I was so angry at Jon AND Kate for staying on the air, and using the divorce "the big announcement" as a ratings grabber.

Such a sad thing to do for making those "family memories". All on tape for those kids to watch in the future. I bet that will make them feel so good, eh?

konspiracytheory said...

First time seeing the building jump clip - wow. I was so uncomfortable for the kids that I wouldn't have lasted if the clip had been any longer. How in the world do people find this entertaining? My mother is NPD so maybe it just hits a little too close to home, but still...

Prairie Mary, you are so right re: Mady's reaction to Kate's histrionics. It makes my blood boil when I think of the internet legacy of nasty comments left for that girl to discover when she's just a bit older (if she hasn't already). One look at the clip will tell you what a good person she is at heart - shame on her mother for bringing all of this vicious criticism on her.

readerlady said...

Kate must have forgotten all about the camera that Jon gave her for Christmas after she moaned and complained and whined about how much she hated her camera. Wonder what happened to it?

Kate always complains about how she can't do anything without being stalked by the paps but there wasn't a single sighting of her and the 3 little girls "out west"? I call BS on both counts!

Kate would not have jumped if she was not being paid to do it, and the cameras were turned off.

Kate even admitted that her crying on the ground in a heap of pulsating flesh lasted for 20 minutes. TLC cut all that out, she said. 20 minutes! Not only holding people up in line at the top, but holding them up even MORE with her stupid actions at the bottom. That was the most unnecessary, stupidest, display of ummm I can't even think of a word to describe it. She was testing herself, she was pushing herself. She was doing things that she never did before. LOL Gawd, what an absolute display of stupid. The poor kids, the expressions on their faces. She just really couldn't not let the twins have THEIR glory of the jump. The clip just makes her look like the quivering fool she is, it really PO's me. Can you tell? LOL

Good gawd, she is even asking for more ideas how she can 'challenge' herself. LOL How about THESE challenges, KATE,

1.) Not film your poor kids anymore? Give your kids PRIVACY.
2.) To shut up for once about your ex, and REALLY move on
3.) Let your kids live a normal life, for a change, so they can handle real life.
4.) Actually TEACH your children something on/before these trips? Say, like who the President is, psstt it is NOT George Washington.
5.) Teach your kids to tie their shoes.
6.) Stop LYING. You lie about anything and everything
7.) Stop being such a drama queen. It makes you look REALLY stupid.
8.) Stop going on tv and crying and sobbing about money or whatever your cry of the day is, really TRY to be a mom and strong.
9.) Realize you are NOT special, in any way shape or form. Remember the interview you gave that you were the "RARE single mom who supports her kids". MILLIONS of women and men do this and have done this for YEARS.
10.) Finally, just shut up and get off tv. PLEASE.
11.) JUST SHUT UP.

Sincerely,
me

Let me get this straight, she can afford to take the girls on vacations all the way out west, but she can't manage to get them into gymnastics?

Oh right because she wants the trip too and if the girls benefit it's incidental. But there's no benefit to Kate to put them in gymanstics, if anything it's a detriment since they'll get attention and not Kate. What a complete lunatic.

Well, there you go. It's just a sample of Kate's twisted logic, and incessant need to lie her ass off.

She is full of it said...

If she was with the 3 little girls "out west" then why in one of her tweets did she say that she was minus the 8? Problem is, the woman lies so much, no one can believe anything she says. IF she really did take the little ones out of school to go on a trip, then when is the RECONNECT trip for the boys?? When is the RECONNECT trip with the twins? IF she was a REAL mother, she would not have to RECONNECT with 6 and 10 year olds that she has primary custody of. She makes me sick. I hope her show is over and I hope she slips and lands face first in a pile of steaming horse plop at the derby.....AND that it all gets filmed for her REALIST REALITY show!

See my post above for plenty of challenges/suggestions. Hope you agree. And you ARE right, seems everything this blog brings up, SHE does tweet about it, indirectly. Going to church? Suddenly, ONE tweet about CHURCH. No trips without TLC paying? Suddenly, A TRIP NOT FILMED. The fans say we are 'delusional' to think she reads here, but IwannadateKate surely did, didn't he/she? You hit it, she does read here, and I think the woman HAS posted here too. She is so vapid and transparent, it is sickening.

fidosmommy said...

1) Kate's response to the gossip tweet can be interpreted 2 ways. "Tell me about it" can mean
"Oh, I'd like to hear more", or it can mean "Duh, no joke".

2) The camera. If making personal memories is
what Kate is trying to do, wouldn't a wonderful trip with her 3 youngest daughters be the perfect opportunity to snap personal, private family album type pictures of them
playing, swimming, etc? No cameras to record the moments of a real honest to goodness vacation? If she wanted them to remain personal and private, she could just say "These pics are just for us. Sorry, but they won't be posted." Sounds pretty reasonable to me.

3) I have panic attacks when needles are involved. I think I'm going to die, literally.
Within 3 minutes of it being over my pulse, BP and breathing are back to normal and I am a fully functioning person again. Methinks 20 minutes is a stretch that no reasonable person would accept as honest. Could Kate have exaggerated that timeline? She does tend to overstate things. (I have 900 kids clamoring
for my attention, for example) I'm willing to believe she might have sat in a chair for 20 minutes, or that her legs were wobbly for 20 minutes, but not that she was in panic mode for that long after the frightening event was over.
So sorry, Kate, but no. A fellow panicker says
uh uh. I'm not entirely sure a human heart could sustain that.

That said, it takes time to absorb the belief that you actually did something frightening and
lived to tell about it. Perhaps a momentary stun. But even so, you are able to move - even with help - and go do your celebrating off to the side, collecting pats on the back and lots of hugs for your great courage.

3) The time of day/night she tweeted tells me she was not in the Eastern Time Zone. Hey, maybe she went to visit Sarah Palin in Alaska!
You know those moosedogs call to you in the middle of the night. And maybe it quit raining there. It sure hasn't here.

So, yeah right, we're supposed to believe that she took the kids on three private vacations last year in addition to all the traveling for TLC trips. And, yeah, NOBODY saw her and the kids anywhere on any of those three trips. Okay. And, yeah, sure she has two more private trips coming up this year for the boys, and the twins.

Aeris said...

I also call BS on that trip with the girls. She can say whatever she wants, her fans will always believe her. Lying or not, she's proven the paps have NO interest in her, hence not a single photo. And like someone else said, what mom doesn't own a REAL camera, or even a camcorder? She knows her fans would want to see pictures, so it was easier for her to just say "I don't have a camera and no one took photos". Plus, you can't produce photos of a trip that never happened (at least not with girls in tow).

Her word choice of "reconnecting" doesn't surprise me at all. I don't think she feels connected to her kids or really "knows" them. They've been raised by babysitters and nannies for 4-5 years. Khate has said the tups were calling one of their nannies "Mommy", sometime in 2009, IIRC. She also once said she didn't feel comfortable with her tups until they were well over a year old. We've all seen her treat her kids like a unit, with no regard for their individual tastes.

Frankly, I think Khate just needed a vacation from her Twitter fans. I really hate to rag on young girls half my age, but seriously, leave Khate alone on Twitter. I'm talking about the ones that get angry that Khate is "ignoring" them. She's a mom of EIGHT, count 'em eight kids. Every tweet you make to her is taking up some precious seconds she could be spending on mothering. How would you feel if you were one of the G8, watching your mom texting away to strangers on her lil' phone all day long? Seriously, don't be so selfish.

Not a moment too soon to get this family off the air (though many moments too late). She's now encouraging Mady to "Strike a pose" in one of the webisodes. http://tlc.discovery.com/videos/kate-plus-eight-webisodes/
It's not cute...it's highly inappropriate for a 10-year old. Neither Kate nor TLC have any boundaries...the future doesn't bode well for these children.
"More speculating said... The girls either had an audition or she was shopping them to agents." My thoughts exactly.

No regrets said...

" And like someone else said, what mom doesn't own a REAL camera, or even a camcorder?"

Jon bought her a brand new, as someone has pointed out. PLUS, on MANY episodes SHE has said more than once, that she takes picture after picture and always has and always will. I remember that, when the kids wouldn't cooperate with the pictures being taken, NC is one and the NYC episode was another off the top of my head. Just like the Easter baskets she went on and on about, she had all day before the kids came home, and plenty of time after a fan asked for pix. She just didn't get that pix before they were 'destroyed' by the kids? You simply cannot produce a pix of something that did not happen. I am glad she won't post a private pix, but to say she has no camera? Just state it is PRIVATE, and want to keep it that way. Just another lie to cover another lie.

BS indeed.

Can you think of one other reality star that has had so many opportunities to develop a career out of it served up to them on a "golden" platter and completely blew it? And she has no one to blame but herself (not that she'll ever see it that way). Her own nasty personality is what completely sunk any chances of a career in the public eye.

Administrator said...

I just love how anytime Kate tries to make herself look good she traps herself in her own lies. It must be hard work remembering all those lies, I don't blame her.

As someone pointed out, she just said Kate minus 8. Now she claims they've been out west all week with the little girls. Oops! I'm sure the sheeple will say well she didn't want to disclose the kids were with her until after to protect them. Gosh gee wilikers, that sure as heck never stopped her before.

Also, she claims they can never go back, the paps hound them and so on. Yet not one single pap photo, tweet, facebook post or anything about seeing them on this trip. Not only from this trip but all the other private trips Kate claims she took them on. You mean they went on a nice private trip and weren't harassed or outted for where they were?

Which is it Kate, can you live a normal life or can't you? Me thinks she CAN.

Also now that she is claiming not only does she film the crap out of them on trips but she takes them on trips in addition to filming....has she ever heard of just hanging out at the house or doing something simple like going to the boys' Little League game in town. She is PROJECTING her love of travel and getting away on these little kids. I have never known a 6 year old to have this kind of intense interest in traveling.

Administrator said...

They posed for photos in New York City with their own cameras. They had no problem taking personal photos there. In fact Kate was dragging the kids over for the family photos no one likes to do.

I agree saying you didn't have a camera sounds WAY more suspicious than just saying aw thanks we got some cute ones but they're just for us.

The iphone 4 which I also have (not pink) has a GREAT camera, one of the best ever on a cell phone. I'm going to Europe again next year and I'm just planning to take my iphone rather than buy a new camera that's just going to be outdated in a few years anyway. Easier to email the photos anyway direct from the phone. If this was any kind of special trip at all I cannot imagine any parent not taking at least a few photos.

Kate is a horrible liar, she really needs lessons in that for starters.

Administrator said...

I thought you might take a trip to "reconnect" with your 17 year old daughter you've had a really rocky past few years with what with her teenage pregnancy and drug use and so on, not your 6 year old sweet and innocent little girls.

Amen, Aeris! They sound ridiculous, talking about one fan "hogging all the attention". They're vying for her attention like they're spoiled four-year-olds. They really don't care if they're taking time away from the eight children. They just want their fix of Kate's personal responses.

It'll be interesting to see how this plays out when Kate runs out of excuses for not tweeting. "I broke my arm--laid up."
"I lost my iPhone & my laptop has a virus."
"I fell into a mine shaft."

If she needs to reconnect with 6 year olds, 16 is going to be a rough yeer.

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

I found that odd as well. I was "hyper connected" to my children when they were little, and even now that they are young adults.
Sometimes they liked it, other times they didn't ;o)

I don't think Kate was ever really "connected" to her children- I think Jon was/is. She was more the manager/disciplinarian of the family.
I think that was explained further in an earlier show by Kate herself.

Fortunately the kids are young. Kate still has a chance to fix her relationships with her all of them.

Lorrie said...

Uh-oh. Some of the sheeple are beginning to get a wee bit jealous of all the attention Kate is giving a particular tweeter. They are complaining they suddenly feel "invisible", that they feel this tweeter is becoming "stalkerish", and that she's taking up all of Kate's time.

Who was it that predicted the wool would soon start flying? Can we get Admin to give that person the "I called it!" award next?

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

Since she loves to travel, maybe Kate should have been a Stewardess, not a nurse.

Yikes! I can imagine Kate throwing bags of peanuts & sandwiches at the passengers.
You want water? You're going to have to wait until she's good and ready to bring it to you...

Just Dwindle Away said...

You guys, if she went "out west" she meant she went to L.A., either to try to beg a Hollywood job or just to buy an outfit for the weekend. She may or may not have taken a couple of kids with her.

However, no amount of lying and exaggeration will change the fact that the hundreds of thousands of photographers that hound her "every. day. of. her. life" (as she says), could not have cared less about her for the past 2 weeks, even with her show tanking.

Dont be fooled by her twisted words, we know how she loves to think she can play with words.

BoyMom said...

I just want to say how proud I am of everyone not watching. We did the only thing we can for these kids at this point and now we can just watch the numbers continue to fall. Great job guys!!! :)

Midnight Madness said...

When did she say she was going away minus the eight? Was that on this last trip, or the trip for the production meeting? So many trips, one just cannot keep track.

She also said that she can't wait to tell the tweeters about it when she gets back. So, spill, Kate! Don't make promises you can't keep. Oops...forgot about the Mommy and Daddy will be together forever promise!

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

I am not reading the MINUS THE 8 comment as meaning Kate was without the 8. I read it as she was returning a greeting that had been sent to her and the 8 but when she sent the greeting back she took off the 8 (since the woman who originally sent the greeting probably did not have 8 of her own). It was as awkwardly phrased as my explanation of it, but it was a tweet and I think they have more leeway.
Here is the exchange:

@dowd24 susan dowd
@Kateplusmy8 good day Kate from Ireland :) I hope you and your 8 have a fab weekend 

fidosmommy said...

Can anyone with kids in their school confirm that the little girls were not in school this week?

I believe Kate was someplace with them, but
I also bet that there was at least one helper along to do most of the caretaking. Kate with 3
lively 6-7 year olds all by herself? I don't think so.

Tweet-le De Tweet-le DUMB said...

I agree, T.I.N.I.C. I didn't read that to be anything other than Kate saying she wished the tweet the same minus the 8.

Administrator said...

But I'm you may be right but then that means Kate is lying about brig hounded by paps. Either way she is lying about something. I think it's great to take them on a trip but not during school! Do you think they should be pulled out of school???

kat said...

Where's Kate today? Probably out buying all the wine she can find. Trying to reassure herself that the ratings will come back. Poor thing. Everyone knows she can't handle this. I would pay to be a fly on her wall. I love how she pretends everything is going great. Haven't heard a peep from her sheep. It's about time the universe is doing its job and outing this beast for what she really is. Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out... Kate.

TLC stinks said...

So maybe she did take the tup girls on a trip and maybe it wasn't filmed, but there was a sneaky reason on her agenda because she doesn't take those kids anywhere just for fun. I seem to recall those "alone trips" were filmed. I agree with poster upthread that if it wasn't a TLC filming, then she was somewhere like LA marketing those girls. Let's face it.....those kids will always be supporting her. If the show tanks, she'll be dragging those kids to talent agencies. It'll never end.

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

I'm a hater too but said...

You guys are being ridiculous.
========================
You are the second person in two days who is embarrassed to read here so feels the need to school us in what we should discuss and how we should discuss it.

I wonder two things: Why do you describe yourself as a HATER? Not too many of us think of ourselves that way.

And Second: We call Kate a liar because she lies. If it embarrasses you to read that Kate is being called a liar you are in for a lot of embarrassment. She lies and that is probably not going to change any time soon.

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

Wasn't it rumored that she had her boob job the time she took Mady only to CA? and I don't believe for a second that the kids are back in school. If they were she'd make sure the world knew it, and claim it was her excellent homeschooling and guidance that helped them make so much progress.

There is no way I beleive kate has 10,000 followers on Twitter. This is another fraud that has been put out there for the public to believe. I've been following on twazzup since the beginning, and the same people post all the time, even the Khaters.
Does twitter allow hundreds of people to have multiple accounts? One would think that only 1 IP address would be allowed!! How does this work?

Going to take some time off for my mental health! LOL said...

Someone upthread said something about her taking her sweet time at the bottom of the jump.

Got me to thinking... she is just nasty enough to think that if Brad wouldn't let her take time up at the top, she was damn well gonna get her time at the bottom.

Sort of a f/u to Brad and the "nice" folks waiting in line for her theatrics to end.

They couldn't let any more folks jump until she cleared the base, so she 'made them wait, made them wait, made them wait - na na na na na... "Brad's not the boss of me"! I bet she was thinking, "so there mr hook-her-up person".....

I am thinking that she has made me such a b*tch because of my disgust of her that I will sign off for good. I really think the advertisers won't want to spend the ad time dollars on a show that has so few viewers, so they might be the driving force in the end. No advertisers, no show.

Will check back in a few months. Hopefully won't find any mention of her.......

Thanks to the mods - this is a good blog!

carolina peach said...

If this has been mentioned already, sorry. On her trip out west with the girls, maybe what she means by 'not filmed', is 'not filmed by the paps'. So if her horse got spooked, bucked and she has two black eyes from her frontage smacking her in the face, there's no one to blame this time around.

AuntieAnn said...

I'm a hater too but said..."...I'm sure we will hear of 'sightings' in Wyoming and somehow this will be verified but calling her an outright liar is embarrassing for me to read.

I love this blog but the speculation and nitpicking do get over-the-top. WE are keeping Kate relevant, not the 7 lone sheep bleating about their hero.

Admin. I don't know if you'll post this but this blog is more active than all the fan blogs put together. "
====

Some people are slower on the uptake when it comes to reading personalities, but better late than never wouldn't you agree? If this blog is more active than all the fan blogs combined I'd say that balances the scale with K+8 ratings taking a dive. As her ratings go down the number of people coming to this blog increases. That tells me a lot of people, even some sheeple are finally realizing that Kate isn't all that she claims she is...that she IS an habitual liar, she IS exploiting her children, and that she IS a narcissist who'll stop at nothing to keep HERSELF relevant. She's doing herself in and we're here to report on it...lol.

Linda G. said...

Bubbles, well that's certainly a Co-inky-dink!

I'm a hater, I TEND to agree with your sentiments (sediments), and could have said the same thing three months ago, but at this point, with the ratings falling as precipituously as they are, it's not going to matter. No amount of chattering about this fool is going to keep her on TV at this point. So I feel no qualms about it, whereas in the past I wondered if paying ANY attention to her was a good thing.

Though I will say I still really wish the handful of critics on Twitter would stop, because I want to see how truly sad her @ feed is without anyone for the fans to argue with AND no Kate around to talk to, either. I have the feeling a few of the fans would stop saying anything on her twitter feed without anyone to argue with and then you'd see the true extent of her unpopularity: a lone fan or two tweeting into the void. How I long to see it!

I'm a hater too but said...

I call myself a hater because the sheeple believe that anybody that doesn't support Kate's right to "raise her kids as she sees fit" is a hater.

I loathe the woman. I think TLC is disgusting.

I didn't mean to offend anybody. THIS is my favorite Gosselin blog but sometimes I just think some people go overboard.

Laura D. said...

Thanks for the graph, Troy. I'm guessing kate was shown something similar during her recent meeting in TLC's boardroom.

AuntieAnn said...

prairiemary said...First I have seen of her "fall"-first thing I noticed was the expression on poor Mady's face, as she ran to her stupid mother. How could kate be so cruel?
====
Because it comes easy to her. At the beginning of the clip Mady was excited for her mom then her expression goes to pure terror and she ran straight to her. Kate sucks the lifeblood out of those kids and plays with their emotions. We've never seen her with a concerned look like Mady's ...ever. Not when the kids were seasick, when they were lying on the bathroom floor, when they were tired, when they were cranky...too many times to mention when Kate hasn't had an ounce of sympathy for her own flesh and blood.

Vanessa said...

Don't forget they filmed for Philly a looong time ago. There was probably talk of some kind of dating show then. That's why all the "dating" innuendo, creepy talk about the statues, hockey players etc... Fast forward to now, mmmm, DON'T think so! Even her "birthday" in NYC had her doing some kind of speed dating or something...when was that???
TLC is about money, that's it, that's all. Wake up sheeple, wake up Kart! Even if they think her "drama" is what keeps viewers, she's given us the "best of the best" in the last little while, and still the numbers are circling the toilet.

Linda G., I totally agree! I have posted a few tweets kHates way, but nothing in a week or more. Her 'fans' love defending their queen. It would be more entertaining to watch them self-destruct!

And since I'm posting (which I rarely do) let me say Linda G. I tend to agree with you all the time! Great minds and all... ;)

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

I TOTALLY agree! While it has been amusing, I do think it's time to just cut off the tweets and see how bored the 5 or 6 gushing fans get. All the anti-Khate tweets are seriously giving them a reason to be on Twitter. They feel so important defending Khate constantly, and then reporting back to her. If all the anti-Khate tweets end, I think it would be hysterical.

Please tweeters, if you read here, please just try going totally silent on Khate's Twitter feed and see what happens? Thanks!!

I don't know if Kate reads here but TLC sure did since I got a cease and desist letter from them last August. Which I responded to telling them politely to shove it. Hi Mike how's the practice going?? Tee hee.

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

Excellent!

so sick of her said...

I think Kate is full of beans. She is making stuff up, to keep interest in her. Let's face it, there has been nothing on Kate, no pics, no articles of anything new. Except for the Derby. I think Kate has been in NYC, getting her hair done, shopping for an outfit and a hat. No paps, cause they could care less.

I really agree with that. I have long said I really wish people would stop posting the anti comments. It has really become very repetitive, even the new things coming up are not listened to, nor read by Kate. Even the fans don't care what is said. The lies/improper/contradictions Kate has tweeted are ignored. So why bother? It garners sympathy for Kate, why add to that? Please if you read this, please consider stopping? I also want the fans to see that Kate will eventually do the dropping of twitter, and not let the excuse about the 'haters' be the reason. (Even though they won't get it LOL)

I agree. It's just a back and forth meaningless bantering. I think that the critics believe they are exposing Kate's lies, her lack of parenting skills, etc., but the truth is that they look as bad as the sheeple in keeping this thing going. I would love to see the handful of sheeple just commenting among themselves, tweeting nonsense.

No regrets said...

Hi hater, I understand what you meant, but it really isn't anyone's place to tell someone what to talk about or not. The gum discussion the other day? Did I think it warranted all the posts? No. Did I tell people they were ridiculous? No. I just didn't participate. Most of us are very passionate about things, they just may not be passionate about the same things. Eh?

And no, we can't possibly be keeping Kate relevant, see TV Ratings. hehe

SmileyGrl752 said...

'm talking about the ones that get angry that Khate is "ignoring" them. She's a mom of EIGHT, count 'em eight kids. Every tweet you make to her is taking up some precious seconds she could be spending on mothering. How would you feel if you were one of the G8, watching your mom texting away to strangers on her lil' phone all day long?

_____________________

Kate ignores her kids and sticks them with nannies, and the fans say it's okay, she needs some mommy time. Yet when Kate ignores them, they get upset.

Pants On Fire said...

KHate-speak translated: She went to a Plastic Surgery Center 'west' of town to get her 2 'girls' tuned-up.

SmileyGrl752 said...

Not a moment too soon to get this family off the air (though many moments too late). She's now encouraging Mady to "Strike a pose" in one of the webisodes. http://tlc.discovery.com/videos/kate-plus-eight-webisodes/

Cara looks so unhappy during the couch interview. She doesn't smile and her arms are crossed. Poor girl.

Linda G. said...

No regrets: that's another good point. If all the "haters" (I call them critics, as that's more accurate) on Kate's twitter feed go away, then the handful of fans there will have no one to blame when she doesn't come back, and trust me, the day will come--sooner rather than later--that she just doesn't come back.

Also, I'd love to see if they start picking at each other and in-fighting. I bet they do. Right now they have this common "enemy." Take it away and watch them turn on each other when there's nothing else to do and Kate's not there. There have already been little tensions here and there. Let them focus on that. Hee.

If nothing else, Kate Twitter Critics, remember this truth: a narcissist's GREATEST fear is being ignored. They hate that more than anything in the WORLD.

Hi bearswife! Thanks!

Pants On Fire said...

Kate sure has the balls to start tweeting after the latest ratings (lowest ever) were released today. I thought it would be another no tweet night. Was there no repeat tonight for a tweet party? Guess Kate has even given up on her own show...lol.
--------------------

I think KHate was schnockered when she Twittered late last night.

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

Going to take some time off for my mental health! LOL said... Someone upthread said something about her taking her sweet time at the bottom of the jump.
=====================
I don't think you are being bitchy to think Kate was chewing the scenery instead of having honest hysterics. I got the same impression. I just now finished watching the whole episode--had only watched the tower portion before and I totally agree with you. She even said "I don't care if this takes all day" before she went up. And she definitely meant it. Same old, same old. Remember the bunk beds? Remember Ikea? If people aren't immediately in awe of her she will pull the Super Bitch from Hell out of her bag of tricks and let them know just how important she is. People will WAIT!! She is THE STAH!!
I also saw that even though she was in New Zealand, about as far from Pennsylvania as you can get, she HAD to take time out to throw Jon under the bus. (And I think that may be why the kids were shown talking with Jon on an earlier episode--I am taking the word of others here--I haven't seen that one.) "Some people don't respect our need for privacy, sigh," little innocent girl look. Obviously we are supposed to flash to the kids talking innocently with their dad and jump to the conclusion that he immediately called his world wide system of paps and sent them to hound his children. I have a feeling the one, lone pap was a little confused about the fuss. He probably had to google her, himself.

All in all, I think both Australia and New Zealand are glad to see the last of her. I think she is safe in scratching ambassador off her list of jobs to look into.

All that's needed for a Twitter account is an e-mail address. The more e-mail addys, the more Twitter accounts a person could have.

I do know a LOT of her Twitter followers are high-school kids, many friends of Kate's original teen followers that have jumped on the bandwagon and think she's great.

And Second: We call Kate a liar because she lies. If it embarrasses you to read that Kate is being called a liar you are in for a lot of embarrassment. She lies and that is probably not going to change any time soon.

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

Count me as #3. I've been commenting on Admin's blog since she started it in '09 and consider myself "Team Kids" (the sheeple named us 'haterz' and we often call ourselves that to differentiate between us and them) and I too felt embarrassed with the way 'we' went on and on about where Kate was, why she stopped tweeting, and what it all meant, etc.

I don't believe the previous 2 comments told anyone how to post or what to post about, but felt they were from fellow 'haterz' concerned with the way we carried on - imo, we were worse than the sheeple we're criticizing who are asking why they're being ignored. I agree with them; you may not, but it doesn't mean we're not on the same side or don't have the same opinions about Kate and the way she exploits the kids.

I've written to dozens and dozens of sponsors, TLC, commented (what feels like) thousands of times on various blogs and websites and with Kate's absence this week I put myself in the position of an outsider looking in at 'us' and the picture I saw was a bit pitiful, imo. We sounded needy and while I think some here may feel they were being criticized, I don't. I interpreted the 2 posts you're referring to as constructive comments from fellow 'haterz' here at 15MGS who were concerned about us going a overboard.

If you don't feel the 2 comments are applicable, then ignore them, but after reading the many comments on the past couple of posts about the mystery surrounding Kate and Twitter I felt they were justified. I'm not an outsider or a sheeple in disguise; I just took a step back and happen to feel the way we went on and on this past week looked bad.

A mother that doesn't have a camera is the same mother who has a frigin camera crew & has said that the only reason she has that stupid show is so she can make memories. Has anyone actually seen her take pictures on K+8? I know we don't watch...Admin? You do the recaps, have you seen Kate snap a pic of the kids riding a horse, petting an elephant, sky jumping? ANYTHING?

If not, then she doesn't own a damn camera because she thinks that those stupid cameras that follow her & her kids around are making her memories. Too bad they are making BAD ones. They are making Kate look horrid. They are making Kate look like an awful, terrible mommy. Who doesn't want still shots of their kids? Those are the moments I cherish the most. The photos I can look back on, the candids, & I can say "At that moment we were/he was/I was/..." What mother doesn't own a camera? Kate.

"WMUC 88.1 just reported that show will be canceled. Official announcement to come within a week. They are in Maryland where the Discovery TLC headquarters are located. They reported that TLC gave the show last chance with the marathon monday of Kate Plus 8 but these shows combined failed to get over 1 million viewers. It's over."

Maggie said...

Kate has lost 80% of her total viewership since her show, "Kate Plus 8" has aired. And it hasn't even been on a year yet.
3,400,000 = first show
680,000 = last show
VIEWERSHIP 80% DOWN.
Kate lost 8 of every 10 viewer has every had.

Kate said in her tweets that she doesn't own a camera EXCEPT the one of her phone. So she does own a camera.

@ I Took a Step Back:

I am 99% certain that I know 'who you are', and while I've missed seeing your posts I agree with you 100%. I was a prolific poster on GWOP back in the day - now, not so much (and certainly not on GWOP). It sort of feels to me like everything that needs to be said has been said countless times over, but then I remind myself that we all have different starting points regarding when we stumbled upon this mess. While I still follow the Kate saga to a degree, fatigue has set in from being exposed to it for so long and it has run its course for me. Of course, my concern for the kids has not changed one bit, but all the commenting in the world hasn't (and won't) change their fate.

Dulcina said...

Count me as #4. I accept the label of "hater" because I HATE what is being done to the 8 G. children.

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

Well, I am very concerned now. I just did not see any point that we went overboard in our speculations regarding her absence. I thought we had fun with it, no one took anything seriously and no one particularly cared. But if three of you are embarrassed then that would mean I am probably just not seeing it correctly. So, maybe my viewpoint has shifted. And that's not good. Maybe I am jaded or have become too bitchy. I think it may be time for me to take a step back, also.

Thank you for your input. It was well thought out and made a lot of sense without being snarky. I appreciate it.

I agree. But now I see regulars criticizing other regulars and someone saying she didn't comment on the chewing gum issue even though it was "ridiculous." Very condescending. And I thought we could have fun on this board, but I posted something totally tongue-in-cheek today which was never published. I have repeatedly posted that I wish Kate no PHYSICAL harm, so it should have been obvious my post was in fun. I'm done.

Judy we're not going to post things wishing anyone harm even tongue in cheek ones. For obvious reasons but also for legal ones as I don't want any kind of joke to be seen as a threat. Sorry.

Sharon said...

Thanks to all that tried to explain Twitter accts to me. I finally went over to twitter and found out that they actually encourage people to have multiple accounts. It didn't say what the limit was, so one could assume you could have a hundred accts. Also, they don't check Ip addresses unless the person wants to be 'verified.' So, anybody can just make up all these names and people actually think somebody has 10,000 followers, when in fact it's only 500. What a complete and total scam....

JudyK It's really ok, you are ALWAYS a great poster!! I do apologize to anyone who took it the wrong way. I should have clarified WHY I felt that way, but it is not really that important. I mean geez come on guys, this is a great board. IF we go over the top on something, someone can say a polite something, right? It was in fun yesterday, some a little over the top, yes. I got the message, even though all I did post was that basically I didn't care where she was, probably getting ready for the Derby.

But remember, ANYONE can post here, and frankly with all the name changes, sometimes I DO think there are sh## stirrers who do come here.

No regrets said...

"Sharon said...Thanks to all that tried to explain Twitter accts to me. I finally went over to twitter and found out that they actually encourage people to have multiple accounts. "

Sharon there are hundreds of seemingly new accounts that follow Kate. No tweets on them. I have no doubt they have been made to bolster her count. I mean, really, how sad is that? They KNOW she does not have that many followers, so they make twitter accounts to "help" her.

No regrets and JudyK - I would really miss your comments if you left!

Listen, we all have one goal and that's to get these kids off tv and let them have some sort of private childhood before it's too late. So, if we hang out here while waiting for the end of the show to come and we goof around with what we comment on and post about, big deal. I often take time off from the blog and even following any Gosselin news at all. I remember I was gone for quite a while one spring and summer (I think in 2009? It was after the child labor hearing in PA) and when I came back, Admin's entire blog had been revamped with this great new look. I sometimes take a break and don't comment in posts at all, or just skim the posts but don't have time to read all the comments, and then other times I comment a lot. Comments that are irrelevant to me, I usually just scroll past without adding my own remarks.

I just think we are so close to finally seeing the end of this show that I really wish the regulars would stick around just so we can mark that occasion together. I believe it will be here very soon. This time, it's for real because the ratings have really been atrocious and TLC has a bunch of new shows (with better ratings) to focus on.

LaLaLandNoMore said...

I think anyone who needs to talk about "reconnecting with their 6 yr. olds" just sounds stupid. If Kate did take the kids on a "private" vacation on her own dime, why doesn't she just keep it to herself? Of course we all know why. It either didn't happen, or she took the idea from someone right here on this blog! Good luck connecting at all with any of the kids during the "teen" years. We'll read all about it in years to come. This show will be history soon. Even TLC has to be sick of it.

Thanks, Admin for all of your hard work.

DannyDarko said...

I just read this thread and I don't see any over the top posts about Where is Waldo aka K8. She was the idiot acting all coy like it was some super sekrit surprise. She never did say though and then to top off the sundae of lies claimed to again taken children out of school for another damned trip. She's an idiot, pure and simple. An idiot that thinks she so special and smart but in reality is a huge national joke.
It's the same old crap from her day and day out. And now she starts up this twitter party crap and managed to actually only do it once .. the way her viewers are dropping off in droves seems pointless anyways but just another sign of disrespect to her "fans."
My pity to anyone having to deal with her at the derby. I'm sure she'll be her usual snotty diva self with Steve by her side to try and intimidate anyone wanting to use the restroom while she is in it. Too bad those twins didn't check into the type of dimwits they invite.

JudyK said...

No Regrets, thank you! I would really miss seeing you here. This is a GREAT board with a great Adm, who has a job I honestly wouldn't want. I once had a boyfriend who described me as "Ready, Fire, Aim"...and I'm afraid that's what I did today (and I just thought I had grown up!). And, honestly, I don't understand Twitter or how to even get there and miss so much of what's going on because of that. If tweets hadn't been copy/pasted today, I'd have never been aware of them. I have enjoyed this board because of the intelligence, awareness, and wittiness of the respective posters and Adm's very funny and intuitive recaps and threads. Again, sorry I went off today.

Why should commenters be embarassed? It's just a blog. If anyone should be embarrassed for what she's doing to her children, her lousy behavior, acting like a fool on camera, and her greedy lifestyle choices, it should be Kart. She's the grifting famewhore. Everyone has a right to their opinion and to speculate on blogs. Her show's ratings are tanking fast. Hopefully, it won't be long before the children will not have to continue filming. If TLC wants to give her a show, that's their business. It won't last because she has no talent other than using her children, begging and being an overpaid fake. Her twitter account may have gained 1,000 followers last week, but the show lost another 190,000 viewers.

so sick of her said...

Well, I feel real good that I finely got something posted here(I tried a different browser, too many filters). Anyway, I have never been embarrassed by what anyone has posted here. I know sometimes people got carried away by a subject, but I would just skip the intense discussion. The whole thing about Kate twittering and why she was not doing it, was cause it was tied into the ratings. For someone to be twittering 200 times then to just stop, does not make any sense. And of course people are gonna wonder why. Given Kate past, ways, one could almost predict what was gonna happen next, but not this time, that took a different route. As for Kates' twits: remember Kate said on a recent talk show that 99% of what is said on the internet about her is a lie. Therefore, if 99% is a lie, then what Kate says, her interviews, pics, anything on the internet is a lie, cause Kate never said what the 1% that is not a lie was. Since that is what she said, then everything on twitter is a lie, cause we all know that Kate lies, she can't remember what she said a week ago, a month ago, a year ago, or years ago. The camera be one, closing the show down 2(when she said at the beginning that if anyone in the family wanted to stop they would stop), kids being expelled, saying countless things and doing another, etc. Kate had a golden opportunity to make that show into something special, and could have ended up being the darling beloved mom, of TV, and she blew it. The golden egg turned to lead and sank. And this crap of not going back! PLEASE, people do it all the time. Ask people who lost their jobs, military families, single parents(real)etc. Kate is just full of BS.

Too clarify, the word "embarrassed" was used one time by one commenter. Several people simply commented that they thought the speculation about Kate's whereabouts was a bit over the top. Those comments were not aimed at any particular person but were expressing opinions about recent comments on this blog.
Although I comment infrequently, I read here daily and would miss any of your comments, which I find insightful, funny and compassionate.

Hey JudyK and Nobody Likes a Narcissistwe can always make another blog or turn this into the "Mob Wives" or "Jersey Shore" critique board. LOL OR keep on about ALL these kids on reality shows. They all make me sick. Even Bethenny showed her little baby NAKED the other day on the show, they blurred out the private parts, but no matter. UGH I was pretty shocked by that, even after she said the baby would not be on that much I wrote them a strong email, too.

Maggie said...

Kate is such an dope. She tweeted and I quote about the trip with her little girls: " learned so much. Grew up so much. Bonded and giggled".
________________________________
Really, Kate, your little girls grew up so much over the past 4 or 5 days that you spent with them. Kate, you really learned so much in the few days about your little girls. And you really bonded with your little girls over the past few days.

Kate is saying that it takes a trip across the country to spend time, bond, laugh with, and notice that her little girls are growing up. Doesn't Kate realize how this makes her--by her own admission-- such an unplugged mother who spends zero quality or quanity times with her children. This woman DOES NOT WORK AT ALL. Even when they are filming Kate is not working. SO why does Kate have to go away on a trip to notice her girls are growing up. A Mother should be laughing and bonding with her kids on a daily basis.

Furthermore, Kate has a babysitter and Jon to divide the kids enabling her to spend more indivdualized time with each of them or in very small groups. She really makes me sick. We all know from her very excessive twittering from April 3 until April 28 how little time she spent with her children. And now her own words in the above tweet proved it all the more. I think her kids spend very, very little time with Kate on a daily basis interacting with her. That is a fact.

Gosselin8ComeFirst said...

Admin said...Also now that she is claiming not only does she film the crap out of them on trips but she takes them on trips in addition to filming....has she ever heard of just hanging out at the house or doing something simple like going to the boys' Little League game in town. She is PROJECTING her love of travel and getting away on these little kids. I have never known a 6 year old to have this kind of intense interest in traveling.
------
I totally agree. Can't do gymnastics, Little League, anything local or fun for the kids.. I am quite sure Mady and Cara would love to hang out with their friends, as opposed to endless trips....It really is and always has been about what Kate wants. And if it does not benefit Kate, it is not going to happen. Poor excuse for a mother.

so sick of her said...

You know even if it is a rumor, Kate's twitting site will get bomb barted, and the sheeple will have their panties in a bunch, getting wedgies. lolololol The sheeple just took down some fan for posting about the ratings. Foolish person.

url said...

If Kart took her younger girls away on another trip right before school ends, it just shows again where her priorites are. Supposedly one of the girls recently went back to school after being home schooled for 6 months. Would a responsible parent pull this child out of school again for yet another vacation? If there was a trip, it was probably planned and booked in advance for filming purposes. Why would Jon agree to have the children pulled out of school again unless this trip was planned for filming?

The only time I needed to reconnect to with my child, who was 17 at the time, was after I spent 3 years on sea duty and then 1 year at special training for my military career, totaling 4 years spent apart from her. That's reconnecting.
Give me a break, Kate.

wayward said...

Administrator said... But I'm you may be right but then that means Kate is lying about brig hounded by paps. Either way she is lying about something. I think it's great to take them on a trip but not during school! Do you think they should be pulled out of school???

Yay! (in Khate Twitter-speak, lol), are we all good now? I think perhaps a slight case of Khate/sheeple fatigue must have drifted in here today. Hang in there, fellow bloggers, hang in there....the end is almost near!

Uugh, Bethenny. I actually like(d?) her but I have been very, very disappointed in how much her baby is on the show. I haven't even seen this week's episode yet, but I saw one a couple of weeks ago where they were giving the baby a bath. Bethenny was in the tub with her (in a bikini) and holding up the naked baby while her husband washed the front and then the back, with all their weird, goofy names for her private body parts. Holy crap, that is SO wrong!! I don't care what people say, if it would be embarrassing to YOU, do NOT do it to your child, no matter how young they are.

Call me crazy, but I do not believe ANY children should be on reality tv. And while I'm all for free speech and I certainly know all about the law with respect to "public figures", if it were up to me, it would be a crime for any media outlet to take a photo of a celebrity's child even when they are with their parents in a public setting. At the very least, it should have to be fizzled out.

Then again, I'm one of these crazy, over protective parents. I believe in keeping children's private lives private. Well, everyone's lives really. I wouldn't allow reality tv cameras in the sanctity of my home for a million dollars a week. And, I can swear on my child's life, that's the truth!

Okay, I'm gonna try this one more time. I keep getting messages from "blogger" that I'm blocked?

Anway - question. I read a comment on GWOP where the poster said that Kate was threatening to take away Mady's college fund. Anyone know what that's all about? Is that something that will be covered in the recap, Admin, or did you decide not to do one? No pressure or pushing. I can understand your queasiness at having to watch an episode with Kate in it. I'm just curious about that comment. What could Mady possibly have done that was so terrible as to prompt that threat?

I finally got up enough nerve to watch the clip of Kate's skyjump posted above. OMG, as she's fond of saying! What an absolute and utter idiot! I LOVED Brad (at least, I assume that was he) peering over the side laughing at her. I'm glad the clip was only 42 seconds. I'm not sure I could have dealt with a longer one. The expression on Mady's face when she landed and crumpled was heartbreaking. Have we EVER seen Kate exhibit that kind of concern for her children? Or, for that matter, anyone, other than herself? I certainly hope that the radio station report of cancellation is true. It's waaaaaaaaay past time!

Administrator said...

I liked Betheny too. But now it feels like someone told her Betheny this is why you are funny because you say things like this. And now everything out of her mouth is trying to say thigs that are funny and it's obnoxious. I don't like her filming her kid like this either. I did a post on it awhile back.

Administrator said...

Wayward no she's not crying paps on this trip. What I'm saying is she said we cannot go back to normal because the paps hound us. But then she claims she went on some big trip with the girls. And yet not a PEEP from the media about this trip or even facebook. Every other trip they've ever taken has shown up on twitter or fb.

If she did go on this trip, it's proof that they can have a normal life, normal family vacations, and she CAN go back. Not that we didn't already know this, but now the facts are staring Kate in the face. Take the kids off TV and they CAN go back to normal.

_______________________________________________

I think reality TV is not not done allowing parents to exploit their children for $$. "16 and Pregnant" and "Teen Moms 2" has really opened a can of worms. The teen parents who got married in October are already getting divorced because the husband emptied out their bank account and bought a new truck against his wife's wishes. It was bad enough to give Jon and Kate who were adults, a bunch of money. It's an absolute trainwreck to give these dumb teens a windfall and expect them to be responsible with it. And as the status quo, no laws in place to require the babies featured in this show have money put away for their future.

Until the laws change, we'll have lots to talk about for a long time!

The fans can not care about the ratings all the want, but TLC cares. They can say they will still watch all they want but when TLC pulls it there will be nothing to watch.

Ratings are all a network cares about, or 99% of it anyway. When ratings are bad, you are yesterday's news. She is about to be dropped like it's hot and it won't be pretty.

Uh yeah, one thing jumping out at me is that she promised her little followers repeatedly that she'd tell them ALL ABOUT this big mystery trip when she got back. She promised, promised, promised.

And now, she's being all coy and saying she can only give hints, etc etc. And it really sounds like she was filming. Her followers look pathetic, begging her for scraps of information.

But yeah, her promises were just another lie. I think she lies like most people breathe.

That's who it was! Thanks...I was trying to remember which one of the multiples was going to tell us her name once this was over and that's the one. She also worked in TLC production and the Oprah show, along with being a military nurse, airport worker, social worker, flight attendant(?), yes, she did, and who knows what else! "Sad, so very sad, oh, yes, it is!"

I can't find anything about this alleged cancellation. Has anyone turned up anything?

So the scene you described above was blurred out for the viewers. However, how many of the production and the network staff saw the unedited version? It doesn't creep the parents out to have a stranger film your baby naked? It's basically baby porn. Who knows how many people have seen the raw footage as they were piecing the episode together. Someone had to see the shots and manually blur them out. What about the master copy and raw footage? Is it just sitting on some shelf in the studio that a staff member could access?

It's sad that there's no law protecting these innocent lives. Probably won't happen until something bad really happens. It reminds me of these unsafe intersections in my city. Residents have pushed for signal lights over stop signs, yet the city does nothing. Then when more than two innocent lives are lost in the same intersection, the city finally decides that it was unsafe and installs signal lights. Too little too late. Especially for those victims and their families.

________________

She probably did come across that way since the little girls are more favored by her than the twins or boys.

Administrator said...

I think the reason someone said they filmed it is because she IS dropping hints. She said something like HINT, it was similar to the dude ranch episode but not exactly the same.

Hint? Why are we dropping hints? If it's not an episode, why not just out with what they did? They aren't there anymore so the kids aren't put at risk by saying where they went. And if she doesn't want to talk about it, then stop talking about it! But this coy cat and mouse playing games is very annoying. Narcissists get off on playing games though. I'll tell you my secret.....but not right now! Ugh.

If this turns out to be an episode, this will be one of Kate's biggest lies yet. She was very clear this was not filmed and she likes to take the kids on unfilmed trips every year.
