Holy Perfect Picture, Batman!!!!!!!!! said...

OH THIS IS SO EXCELLENT I HAVE TO TYPE IN CAPITALS!!!!!!!!!

HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!!

Who does this photoshopping?! I'm beyond impressed - this is exactly APPROPRIATE for Kart and Purseboy!!!!!!

ROFLMAO....... snicker, choke, guffaw... oops, tea on the keyboard......

Thank you, whomever, for this delightful vision.

Administrator said...

It was yours truly. :-)

Sadly this is the extent of my photoshopping skills, I had to look up how to sepia them.

Nobody Likes a Narcissist said...

Ha ha ha ha!! That is too perfect! Great job!

As always, Admin, thanks for the laughs!

Administrator said...

Well thanks should go to Kate and Steve, their expressions are just PERFECT for this photo, especially Steve's serious gazing off into the distance hero stance while he slings a gun to protect his woman.

Bluenoser said...

I wish I had heeded your warning. I wasn't drinking milk but (gasp) red wine (from a bottle). Your sense of haha is over the top. I love the absurbity of this photo. Why am I hearing Chester telling Miss Kitty she'd better 'git in thar'. On a serious note do you think Steve realizes the complete joke he has evolved to.

Bluenoser said...

On second glance Steve's expression is 'somebody kill me now, please, put me out of my misery'.

JudyK said...

My hat's off to you (pun INTENDED)...ROFLMAO...You are the BEST, the ABSOLUTE BEST!!! Such a good job that I would have almost thought that was Kate except for the slim calves and ankles. My bad.

Gag me said...

That's amazingly amazing, hilariously hilarious, majestically majesticallish and totally berserk.

Nobody Likes a Narcissist said...

You have outdone yourself, Admin! This is the best pic yet!!

Btw, Twitter is already abuzz over it!

Also, someone tweeted this link:

Mother's Day Wishes

With it being Mother's Day, a number of the biggest stars in the TV universe are of course continuing the tradition of publishing some well-wishes to both their mothers and all of the women out there who have helped to support them over the course of their lives.

We'll update this as the day goes on, but here are just what some people are saying at the moment via Twitter:

* Selena Gomez: "To all of the beautiful moms. I hope you all have a wonderful day!! Love you!"
* Ryan Seacrest: "Btw send me pics of ur mom today! We have to celebrate them."
* Kim Kardashian: "Happy Mother's Day to all of the mom's!!!!"
* Justin Bieber: "#HappyMothersDay to all the moms out there and especially mine. @Studiomama I love you and thank you for always being there. Im a lucky guy"
* Kate Gosselin received a Mother's Day video from some of her fans, and thanked them. (She did write a message, but it is far too cluttered to post here.)
* Kirstie Alley: "Happy Mothers day!!!!!!!........all u mothers take a bow!!!"
* "Boston Rob" Mariano ("Survivor"): "Happy Mother's Day to my wonderful wife, my terrific mom, and to all the mothers out there.

My first thought was, you're drinking wine right out of the bottle?

JudyK said...

Bluenoser, red wine from a bottle, really??? LOL! Maybe you belong in this pic! (And you are really funny.)

If you haven't, look at video -FAIR WARNING said...

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

Thank you Kartie Tweetest for listing the link for her Derby interview! I've included it again in this thread as it really deserves to be seen. By those who can tolerate it. Fair Warning.

Let's see, where shall I begin?

1. The hat is ridiculous.
2. Her posture and pose are pitiful.
3. The left hand on the hip is desparate.
4. Her answers are all me-me-me (we're not surprised...)
5. It is worse than I thought it would be.
6. The comment about 'her show coming up' is a BIG FAT LIE - she's trying the "build it and they will come strategy". Won't work babe.

Have to stop here and make a comment about #6: I'm not surprised at all that she is lying. What else can she do?

If she tells the truth she'd have to say "I'm done, no one will touch me - I guess I am too much of a bitch, a little too high maintenace." And we ALL know that her brain doesn't think that way.

7. That little twist back to the camera at the end and the fake smile are so "see me"........

You know, I really hate to be so negative about her...... I'm really not like this in real life (LOL) but for some reason I see her and my brain releases neurochemicals that make my nails extend and my lips curl back..... I hate myself!

Not really..........

Bluenoser said...

Please let me redeem myself. I am drinking red wine, which is bottled, but from a glass. Let me also tell you when red wine passes through one's nasal cavity it FREAKING burns. In the future I will heed Admin's warnings. I am just happy I was able to turn away from my computer screen.

Bluenoser said...

One other thing. I have to wonder if the picture of Miss Katie with her lips pursed wasn't a candid shot. Did she know her picture was being captured at that moment? My best guess would be no. I would hazard it to say she saw or heard something she did not like and reacted just as the shutter clicked. As Kelly (I do miss him) used to say, it is her "who farted" look.

BerksPa said...

That is so PERFECT! ! I swear it looks just like those 'old time' photos they sell at the fairs. (our family did one quite a few years ago when the kids were little)
The sad thing is that she actually wore that monstrosity to an upper class daytime event.

I called dh over to look at the picture and he was cracking up.

I would totally have give her props if she would have worn some classy daytime dress and a proper (even huge-"ish") hat. But instead she made herself a hat out of a couple of feather dusters and a hubcap and then traipsed off to Fredrick's for a dress.
It takes no time at all to Google Derby styles. She must have lost track of time for the past two weeks twittering at her fans to actually do the research on the dress code for the events of the weekend.

One of the best comments ever!

I think Bluenoser meant that her wine is the kind that's in a bottle, not a box; not that she was drinking it FROM a bottle. LOL

heyjude said...

You do realize that Kate will absolutely LOVE this photo, don't you? I'll bet she will have it enlarged and hang it over her and Steves big kingsize bed,in the master suite that used to be Jons, located in the off limits room, that serves as an office and drop and run suitcase drop-off.
You did a great job Admin..but it's too flattering ! Couldn't you make it ugly like Kate really is?

Purseboy Trustee? said...

I'm on a roll tonight. I hope you'll forgive me....

I had a thought earlier today... we've seen on other blogs, and maybe here, that Purseboy is some kind of trustee on the kids trusts....

If that is true (don't want to start a rumor here) then I have to wonder if Purseboy has some kind of financial hand in Kart's "career"...

Could it be, forgive me for stretching here, that Purseboy is cut from the same grifter cloth and is working behind the scenes to milk the cow, squeeze as much blood from the turnip, make hay while the sun shines...... etc. You get my drift.

We've always wondered why he sticks around. Inquiring minds feel that it can't be her personality, and after sex the next best historical motive is money.

As the protagonists in all of my crime novels say, "follow the money trail"....

Now, from a business point of view, arguments can be made for the marketing strategies the couple employ. (Set aside ethics and morality here for a moment!) Marketing strategies for a good product and a bad product are basically the same.

But as in business, there comes a time when the business life cycle dies. No amount of marketing can change that. Sadly, many brands stuggle to stay relevant long after they should have died.

It's during this last stage that reputation can be forever tainted and buckets of money poured into advertising, etc that is essentailly wasted - throwing good money after a dead horse, to mix metaphors.

IF it is true that Purseboy is a trustee on the kids's money accounts (college funds?) then I have to take the mental leap that he's invested, somehow, in Kart's career. And maybe this is why he's always around, pushing for freebies such as the Derby, etc.

Just a thought........... and maybe the memory of him being a trustee is wrong.....

But money is always a good motive, if sex has been ruled out.

I could be way wrong.

Batterednotbroken said...

LMFAO.....Thanks Admin..You are hilarious. Ever thought of writing for a sitcom?

AuntieAnn said...

HAHA!!! Admin! Hilarious. Great job!

Love the way she's gripping his vest.
"Woody's" wild west?...lol!

h8k8 said...

LMAO, Great photo, Admin!
And, thanks for the heads up on the new thread!

Just me said...
I noticed this before, but it is really noticeable to me, at least, in the Derby pics, that Kate never really smiles. She seems to just grit/clench her teeth and consider that a smile? Or is that just my read of the pics?

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

It's not just you. That's Kate's posed smile.

url said...

The photo is hysterical and picture perfect! Thanks for the laugh!

Just Dwindle Away said...

This pic is beyond great! Good job Admin! Too bad there is no button for "show skin tone as natural burnt orange", which is how she looks in color!!

I was having a glass of Pinot Grigio, but after seeing this pic, I just put a big straw in the bottle and I'll happily call it a night! (kidding!)

Happy Mother's day to all here who nurture the tender psyche of a child. I had one more child to hear from today, she finished grading her exams (she teaches college) and then called me for a good long chat. I bid you all a pleasant evening and may you all dream of a child's laughter and tender hug tonight.

Bluenoser said...

Purseboy Trustee? said...

Very insightful. I must say what you wrote has merit and the monicker 'Purse Boy' has even more meaning. Yes, Steve is just one more grifter in the sadeness that is the Gosselin Eight.

readerlady said...

Oh my! I think I hurt myself! I'm glad you warned us, though, Admin. Otherwise, I'd have had ice tea all over my laptop.

One little nitpick - it's y'all - a contraction of you all, not ya'll (says the half billy).

Just Dwindle Away said...

SORRY for the extra post! Just one more thing:...

Just me said...

Yes, I agree! I have been saying that she seems to think that if she just bares her gritted teeth, we will all think she is smiling.

It doesnt photograph like that Kate, it never has. It merely shows your snarl and sneer and we arent fooled at all. Havent you figured that out YET?

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

I have speculated the same about Steve, on this very blog, sometime in the past few weeks. I do believe he is Kate's soulmate when it comes to exploiting the kids, and I think it's quite possible he has orchestrated much of what has happened in that family in the past 2-3 years once he met Kate and realized how easy she'd be to manipulate.

Bluenoser said...

I wonder if Purse Boy is starting to count the debits instead of the credits with Miss Kate. Will he cut her loose? Is he ALLOWED to cut her loose? If he is not, he must be suffering. Can you imagine being tied to someone who is such an albratross and not realizing the mortal blows it would cause your career? He more than likely saw, too late, what affect (sheeple 'affect' not 'effect') this had on his (supposed bodyguarding-ish) career. Doubleless he realized this much too late to salvage any pride.

Bubbles said...

Someone once commented that her clenched teeth smile is her attempt to correct her off-center teeth. That smile never seems to reach her eyes.

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

Absolute PERFECTION!!!!!!

You have outdone yourself-

now take a well deserved bow, Administrator!

:o)

Bluenoser said...

I had a wonderful Mother's day. I spent it with one of my daughter's and her little one and had phone calls from my other son and daugter. In all three conversations it ended with "love you". I love my three children so much and love my grandchildren just as much. I am blessed and thankful

Administrator said...

I'm sorry I forgot to photoshop in a bottle of this in place of the whiskey:

http://maxpictures.com/weblog/wp-content/uploads/2008/05/di-sake.jpg

Actually it would be easy enough to do.

Bubbles said...

This is a cut and paste of my comment from the New Zealand thread:


Bubbles, the non-Blogger ID one said...
Reposting this from the NZ Discussion thread, since this thread will probably be getting the traffic now instead:

There was a blind gossip item a few months ago saying two reality show people, one married, one not, were wanting to come out with their relationship and the network was scrambling to figure out how to make it happen. Looks like this is how TLC is gonna play it - pretend like Steve doesn't exist, then suddenly it's an episode about Steve's home country as if they hadn't been pretending Steve didn't exist all this time. I bet we'll be seeing him in all the episodes coming up, and I wouldn't be surprised if their "relationship" is announced by the end of summer. Then we'll be seeing episodes of "Steve & Kate +8" next fall.

I have no doubt that Kate has a personality disorder, but I have a suspicion that Steve is quite the opportunist and has manipulated this scenario to his advantage. I think when he met her and started doing "security" for the family, he saw the weakness in Jon and Kate's relationship and saw Kate's incessant desire to be admired, and somehow he's managed to get Jon out of the picture and make Kate trust him and only him. He's making BIG MONEY from this gig.

When Hailey Glassman put that ridiculous story on Radar Online about Jon trying to extort money from Kate, there were pages of papers Jon had supposedly written. The first "page" was where Jon supposedly wrote about himself in the third person (which I don't think was his writing) but the other pages were in a different handwriting and had info that makes me believe those papers really were Jon's. One of the things written on those papers was something about "Steve the trustee." I don't know if it was the same Steve, but it was the first time I wondered if there's more to his role in this situation than originally thought.

I don't get the vibe that Steve has the same feelings about Kate that Kate does about Steve, but I *do* get the feeling that Steve has led Kate to believe Steve has the same feelings towards her...and money is a powerful motivator.

I LOVE IT!!! Especially since it caught me offguard since I did not immediately think it had to be photoshopped -- yes I'm saying for about 3 seconds I thought it was a real photo and when I realized I was wrong ... well hell I'm still giggling.

Kudos to you Admin! Great job!

Knows Quality said...

OMG...I had to look twice, no three times, at this photo because I thought it was REAL!!!! TOO FUNNY!!!!

This is the best yet. :)

__________________

One website was talking about the Royal Wedding a couple weeks ago, and it mentioned all the celebrity guests who attended. It showed a pic of David & Victoria Beckham, and Victoria is not smiling in the picture. (She's not looking at the camera, so maybe she wasn't ready for it, I don't know).

Someone commented and wondered why, and someone else mentioned that smiling too much causes wrinkles, and she wants to look younger. So maybe that's why Kate hardly smiles? Or it could be because she's always in a crappy mood too, lol.

Bluenoser said...

Admin this is just a thought but is there any way you can post respones as a '1 through X' rather than time. I looked back for an answer to another posters response tonight and saw a post of mine I had missed (just thought it did not meet acceptable criteria). Rather than posting by time received why not post when posted?

Kartie Tweetest (formely Dearest) said...

So Hilarious. I was laughing so hard I snorted then sneezed.

You rock Admin!

Bluenoser said...

Bubbles I think you have nailed it spot on.

Marie said...

I still say let her continue to climb. Climb in fame because she had 8 kids(big deal). Because she got a reality tv to become her only source of income. But the higher she climbs, the harder she will fall. Reality TV, I pray is a phase!!!

When all is said and done, will Kate be able to support that big house, the nannies, the bodyguards, the helpers and the private school? Will anyone want to interview her when she can't go back to living without those things? I doubt it.

But yeah the picture through me a moment too. But then I thought, no way those two would pose together willingly like that.

Administrator said...

Blue I don't know how to number posts.

JudyK said...

I also think Bubbles has nailed it and Bluenoser, I'm sorry to hear you are a Mom and not a Dad, because I was starting to develop a crush on you! (Just kidding.)

Administrator said...

Smiley, I read that the professional lip reader hired by media to try to figure out what everyone was saying said that at one point Victoria Beckham was telling David, Honey now is NOT the time to discuss this we will talk about it later.

Ha!

So maybe she was in a little tift with him and that's why she wasn't smiling. ;)

Administrator said...

Readerlady, apparently you're right about where to place the apostrophe in y'all. Forgive this Yankee! Changed it.

Administrator said...

You know speaking of people thinking this was really Kate at first before doing a double take, I think Kate would be a great sport if she did something like this. She should embrace herself as a joke, she would have more friends.

Oh completely off topic but I keep forgetting to mention one thing I didn't put in my recap of Kate jumping off the building. She tells Brad before she suits up and is talking about how scared she is, "I don't care if it takes all day." Brad kind of narrows his brow like, umm OKAY but I DO, though he doesn't say anything.

Hey, lady, maybe other people in the world actually planned the Sky Jump today. Kate may not care but what about everyone else waiting in line wanting to do this to??? WTF! She has zero self awareness or regard for any of the world around her. How many people waited in line for her to take her sweet ass time jumping off and filming it all, and had their day's plans completely delayed.

Same with wanting TLC to shut down every museum she goes to. It's so rude to everyone else. Namely the people who actually pay for their own vacations. The last time I was in Philly I was only there 3 days. What if someone and their giant ego wanted to shut down something while I was there and it was the only day I could do it? I would be ticked.

E-town Neighbor said...

Let me also tell you when red wine passes through one's nasal cavity it FREAKING burns.

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

Don't ever eat hot wings when looking at a it probably burns more than wine!

Great job -- kudos. "Amazingly awesome" photo-shopping. It's Steve expression (or lack thereof) that is priceless. I bet Kate is saying, "Goody. Now I don't have to spend $39.95 at Ye Olde Time Photo" kiosk! She'll enlarge it - maybe even give a copy to Steve's parents the next time she's in NZ.

Chewey said...

Admin, I love the last couple of photo shops by you. I laughed hysterically. Photos are so fitting for Khate. But I must admit that coming to your site and finding Kate's recent twitters drives me crazy. Her twitters are nothing more than self serving comments telling us all what a great mother she is. This woman makes me so angry.

LisaNH said...

Great theories on Steve, aka Rat Claw, aka Purseboy! I never thought of that but I think that would not be out of the ballpark about his roll in Kate's life. Every trip she has taken in the last few years, he has been there. And the show on TLC about her when she did DWTS he had more of roll than "security" with the way he was talking to her.

PatK said...

The photoshop pic is priceless, Admin. Well done!

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

You are BRILLIANT, Administrator. Keep sticking it the that idiot, child-exploiting, narci$$i$tic WITCH KHATEZILLA. We know it is photoshopped because that lady in the picture has NICE legs. Kart has hideous piano legs.

Linda G. said...

I've been reading that blog someone posted a few days ago called Narcissists Suck (it's on blogspot) and though the woman doesn't seem to be keeping up on it anymore, there are TONS of great entries about malignant narcissists and how they work. Having been the victim of one for years, I found myself nodding my head constantly while reading.

Anyway, one of the indicators of narcissism is believing (not just feeling as though, BELIEVING) that you are "above" other people,
"special," placed on a higher plane than the everyday riffraff. Often, of course, it is absurdly untrue. How many times have you heard Kate bemoan the fact that other people are around when she goes somewhere? Probably countless times. How dare they exist where she is? To normal people, that's such an odd thing to think, much less say aloud.

But with the show, TLC has actually fed into that common narcissist's trait, emptying out places so that Her Special Self and her Eight Extensions of Her Special Self can have the place all to themselves and not have to deal with other people, who are ickyish.

Most narcissists don't actually GET the white glove treatment, but she has.

I finally figured out why she didn't seem quite as bad when the show first started: she wasn't. Don't get me wrong--she's probably been a malignant narcissist since her teen years or early adult years at the latest. But normal life has a way of keeping things in check for the most part.

However, as the show went on and as she was able to suck more and more off of others and demand more and get more, it has just fed right into her disordered personality and made it SO much worse.

TLC took someone who was already quite bad (I mean, really, calling around to media outlets to shop the babies as a brand before they were born???) and allowed her to get even worse.

One last note: I finally watched her "red carpet" interview and it was actually worse than described. That HAT ALSO HAS NETTING ON THE OTHER SIDE. Did anyone catch that? NETTING. NETTING AND FEATHERS.

But dear God, that interview was awful. What was with the hand on one hip the whole time? And really, if you want to know where Kate is RIGHT NOW, career-wise, just go watch that thing again and really listen to what she says. The interviewer asks her what she's doing now and what's in the future for her.

Oh she says, a little bit of everything. Same stuff, different day. THE show and HER show is coming up. She rambles, saying nothing at all.

THE show has ratings that would make CSPAN sad. HER show is nowhere to be seen and would have to be re-shot at this point, due to her hair being completely different.

So there you go. She gave away just as much as we've guessed: she has nothing on the horizon. She has fingers crossed and last-ditch showing up at horse races dressed as a cocktail waitress.

When we see Kate + 8 canceled and no Twist of Kate anywhere (still) in 2011, I'll be able to say I called it. I said she won't be on TV in 2012. That this is her last year in the public eye (unless she commits a crime or something).

E-town Neighbor said...

She has zero self awareness or regard for any of the world around her

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

She admitted it in the toy store parking lot. She said she isn't aware of other people. How can you live in a world where you don't know what's going on around you?

I also noticed in the Sky Jump photo that she was really ticked off when she couldn't have all the time in the world, and she walked toward the door shaking her head, and said something like, "we're filming," as if to say the world stops for them because they are filming, and therefore she could do whatever she wanted because she was the celebrity. It was very condescending and she came off as an egotistical brat.

If TLC doesn't edit that kind of thing out of there, it kind of makes you wonder how bad it really gets and how much they do delete. I wish we could see what ends up on the cutting room floor.

Linda G. said...

I thought it might be fun to transcribe Miss Diva's incoherent ramblings from that red carpet interview, God, she's a horrible interview subject, though you'd think she'd be awesome since she's her favorite subject.

Interviewer: Well you LOOK fantastic, obviously you're raising eight kids, but WHAT ELSE ARE YOU DOING?

Kate: (long pause) Umm, a little of everything, it feels like lately. Ummm, still doing our show, um, I have, uh, MY show, coming up...soon, ummm (shakes head, hand indicating "I don't know") pretty much whatever...comes...my way? Basically the kids. It's really...(nodding, like "you know what I mean, right?") Same story, different day.

Interviewer: Ok well you DO fabulous juggling it all, did you utilize any of your dancing skills last night?

Kate: Uh, NO. I uh, don't have any dancing skills and you know? I'm...just...(long pause, shaking her head)...not dancing. Drank two lattes, hung out for a while...I'm SO not the late party person, I like to sleep, so, I think I left around midnight, maybe?

Interviewer: Well, then you'll enjoy the Derby because it's over at a reasonable time--

Kate: Perfect, perfect. I can't wait, like I seriously cannot wait to get in there, so...

Interviewer: Well, then let's get you on in there, thank you for stopping by...

(by the way, she always does these long pauses, so the interviewer thinks they can jump in, but when they try to, she suddenly comes up with more)

Also, watch Jennifer Tilly's interview, I think she's half-sloshed in it, but she's funny and then at the end says she needs to get inside to get some drinks. Hee. Hers was entertaining. Kate's will put you to sleep instantly.

Something just occurred to me: with everywhere Kate has been and everything that's happened in her life (eight kids, etc), you'd THINK she'd be a really interesting person, right? I mean, you'd think she'd have a lot of interesting things to talk about. But nope. Narcissists are never interesting, because the only subject they know about is themselves. No depth.

Bubbles said...

I'm just a lowly single mother of only 4, but if someone asked me what's on the horizon I'd be so glad to share that many positive things are happening in our lives over the next few weeks. So sad that all she has is vague references to a "show" that hasn't materialized in two years (while Buddy the Cake Boss has had THREE new successful shows in less time) and of course her reassurances to us that her child exploitation will continue.

Linda G. said...

Bubbles, good point. I mean, does the woman have any hobbies? I guess she can't mention running, as that's more of a workout thing, and not all that interesting.

Why doesn't she have any hobbies? I guess her full-time job exploiting the kids is just too demanding to develop other interests.

AuntieAnn said...

Kate: (long pause) Umm, a little of everything, it feels like lately.

====
Yeah, Kate...the kids...you were saying? What about them? You live off their backs and you have nothing to say about them? Outta sight outta mind, right Kate?

Stupid woman. She wants to be this big celebrity but every time she gets in front of a mike she's so damn ill-prepared she just lets any old crap fall out of her mouth. Doesn't she even watch herself for the sake of finding where she MIGHT be able to improve her skills?
I guess that's too much to ask of a narcissist.

Linda G. said...

A new episode airs at 10 pm on Memorial Day. LOL. Yep, TLC wants to get rid of her. It's probably the extremely fascinating grocery shopping one.

Is it too early to start taking bets on the ratings for that one? I'm going with just under half a million, possibly less.

Administrator said...

E-town you are right Kate admits she doesn't notice other people.

What's rather interesting about Kate is that she openly admits several traits commonly assigned to narcissists. She admits she doesn't notice other people. She admits she wants to shut the museums down just for them. She admits, word for word, her children are extensions of herself. Out of the horse's mouth she is not denying exactly what we have said about her. She just probably doesn't see any connection to what she's feeling, and a personality disorder.

JoyinVirginia said...

"Same story, different day."
Even Ms. Kreider sounds incredibly bored by her own show. This interview will sure bring in the viewers and the ratings! (not)

Nobody Likes a Narcissist said...

Linda G. - thanks for that transcript! I thought of doing it myself when I saw the video last night, but I just couldn't force myself to do it. It looks even worse in writing. I think it was THE worst interview that I have ever seen her do. She appears bored, uninteresting, and just plain old stupid. She seems to be trying to be evasive (lying) but she's not smart or sharp enough to come up with anything good or think on her feet.

Also, your post above that one is excellent. What a great analysis! I enjoyed reading it.

Midnight Madness said...

She just probably doesn't see any connection to what she's feeling, and a personality disorder.

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

If a narcissist is clinically diagnosed by a professional, does that person believe the diagnosis, or does he/she still maintain that no personality disorder exists?

Nobody Likes a Narcissist said...

Someone posted this on Twitter earlier:

Daily Mail

Uugh, I hate that they air her show in the UK. She seems to have a handful of sheeple from over there and I'm wondering if the money TLC gets from airing it in the UK is keeping this show alive.

Westcoaster said...

Fascinating how she tells the interviewer that she likes to sleep, needed two lattes to get there, not a party person, etc. So what the hell are you doing there? And I thought I was party shy. I however know how to dress my age and carry on a decent conversation with strangers. Twit idiot.

fidosmommy said...

There is a TLC promo picture of Jon with Kate kind of draped over his shoulder where he has the Beauty Queen smile on his face, too. It is so very obvious that it is smile he was told how to do. Clench your teeth and pull your lips back and it will translate to a smile. Only it looks almost painful. Not attractive in any sense of the word.

If you go to this link, you will see more photos of Kate at justjared, click on both of the ones that are just of her face and then press zoom on both photos. In one of the photos you can clearly see Kate has acne. And in the other photo with her mouth slightly opened, you can clearly see that her top teeth are veneered and not her bottom. Her bottom are clearly a different color. Make sure you press the zoom button on both photos. YUCK

And that hat is a winter hat--both the colors and feathers. All those feathers are not for standing in the sun all day long in May. Yes, others there may have had a few feathers but not like her hat. Besides it being ugly, it certainly is not spring looking at all. She must have been hot as heck under all those feathers and wearing a lined dress in daytime.

Maggie, unfortunately I did what you said. i wish I hadn't. Those close-ups are terrible.

I'm really starting to wonder if she IS 36. Has she lied about her age? How can someone 36 years old already have a turkey neck??? How can her skin be that bad? And what is that scar under her chin?

Her jewelry looks ten times cheaper up close.

I don't know, either she's living even harder than she's letting on or she's lying about her age.

This is sooo funny. It is a video that is titled "Kate Gosselin is a bitc*. It is a rap song and tells the story about how she was so ugly to Jon in their marriage. It must have been produced during DWTS times. If anyone has contact to Jon, please let him know about this. It sounds like professionals did this.

In fact, I think (not certain) Kelly posted this to Kate on Twitter.

silimom said...

Thanks for the pic, Admin! That's exactly how I pictured her when I first saw her in the Bonanza cast-offs!

For the poster who was curious about Steve as a trustee - When
I read Jon's notes originally, which is what this speculation is based on, it read to me that Steve was a witness to the trust, not a trustee. But bear in mind, that trust Jon and Kate originally drew up was probably nullified by the divorce.

Is This A Silly Question? said...

Forgive me if this is a silly question..... but did Kart get paid to appear at the Derby?

I understand there were a few appearances: the parade, a fundraiser dinner, maybe the red carpet stroll.......

Does anyone know if the Derby pays appearance fees for people like her?

What about transportaion down and back (flight) and hotel accomodations?

For essentially a fundraiser appearance, you'd think the fundraising committee wouldn't pay out to host too many folks or they'd be losing money they wanted for their charity (breast cancer research this time).

I don't know how the Derby handled "celebrities" (the term is caught in my throat).

I know that at times previously, like to The View, they paid for first class airfare and/or limo, nice hotel suites, meals, etc.

The reason I think deep down this might be a silly question is that I can't believe she'd appear for free.

So my question is both general AND specific to Kart this trip - a two part question, as it were....

Silimom, thank you! said...

Silimom

Thank you for you thought that Purseboy was a witness and not a trustee.........

The idea of him being a trustee was pretty shocking to me last year or so when it came up on the boards.......

I didn't know where the idea came from, but your comment makes sense.

Although............ stranger things have happened in the universe since the dawn of time than Kart chosing a perceived stranger (to us, anyway) as the trustee for her kids money.

Not really my business and I don't care, but was just tossing out ideas as to why he would hand around........

Ah well, someday one of the kids will write a book...... we'll probably learn then.

I'm patient.

i am from the uk and i can assure you that very few people would know who kate gosselin is.
27 years ago we had the first set of all female sextuplets born here in my home city Liverpool.the parents allowed filming on the birthdays for about the first 5 years.they had some gifts given to them nothing like the gosselins.fast forward 27 years dad still works as a painter decorator mum has for many years been in charge of the fundraising for the newborn appeal at the hospital the children were born.
3 years ago i saw the mum at the hospital and i asked her how her girls were.a big smile came across her face and she said they were all well and leading good lives.
kete gosselin google the walton sextuplets liverpool and take a look at this happy family who did not let their children be exploited.

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

This is - once again - another lie. My mother-in-law is a narcissist and they are very aware of other people and what is going on around them. They have to be in order to navigate the situation to their advantage and also to keep themselves from having to face anything they don't want to face.

I'll give you an example:

My MIL and father-in-law have been divorced for many years and they were at a family function where my father-in-law and his wife were also present. My FIL said my MIL stood off to the side and stared them down for 20 minutes at the end of the event. Then, when the time came to leave and they were all walking out together, she then was forced to acknowledge them and said "Oh, I didn't even know you guys were here." That's how people with NPD play off their rudeness - by playing dumb and lying. I've seen my MIL do it over and over. Which is why we no longer have anything to do with her at all. We refuse to expose ourselves to her toxic behavior.

E-Town Neighbor said...I also noticed in the Sky Jump photo that she was really ticked off when she couldn't have all the time in the world, and she walked toward the door shaking her head, and said something like, "we're filming," as if to say the world stops for them because they are filming, and therefore she could do whatever she wanted because she was the celebrity. It was very condescending and she came off as an egotistical brat.

If TLC doesn't edit that kind of thing out of there, it kind of makes you wonder how bad it really gets and how much they do delete. I wish we could see what ends up on the cutting room floor.
______________________________________
I wholeheartedly agree. Would love to see the footage that doesn't make it to the show. With the Alaska episode, the Sky Walk episode,(both so over the top diva behavior), I have to wonder if TLC is plannning on dumping her once and for all, showing her truly selfish, rude, demanding behavior once and for all. For all we know, they may be as sick of her as we are. One can hope.

TLC stinks said...

I have no idea if this commenter is legit or not, but claims her husband is a pap and posts on another site. I'm only commenting on this because it aligns perfectly with my thoughts and suspicions: Steve was taking pictures of Kate at the derby, like we've guessed previously, that he's now her private pap because no one is interested; and while in Philly they were spread out in several hotel rooms (not all stuffed into one), and last but not least.....Kate and Steve had their own suite.

To call her show reality is a total joke because everything is manufactured. The only reality are the children as their comments and reactions are generally not scripted, IMO. And for anyone out there who doesn't believe Steve Neild is not intimately involved with Kate personally and professionally, you are too trusting. She disgusts us so much it's hard to believe any man would leave his wife for her, but I'm 57 and have seen it all. The guy is a dirt bag. I am confident it will all come out.

She is a Cow said...

She clearly can't interview without pre determined questions and someone prompting her in her ear.

Doesn't it seem that this interview would have been a perfect time to promote all her philanthropic efforts and her "giving back"!! If she really was involved in koala rescue, she could have mentioned that. If she really was going to start "Giving Back" on a regular basis, she could have mentioned how she is involved in that.....working in food pantries etc. She could have told the interviewer this is her year to really give back to the community that so generously gave to her, then she could tell them how she is diligently working in that direction. BUT, since it is all a crock of S__, I guess she forgot to mention it.

mama mia said...

How nice the sheeple have the money makers birthday celebration to watch on tv. Hope they pop their organic popcorn and slather it with organic butter and seasalt and get the organic marshmallow fluff in the jar to eat by the spoonfuls (it is not fattening or bad for you if Kate calls it organic). Settle your ample arses down and get comfy because you know what it is coming. First up Kate will comment about the rental friends and rental paps out on the front lawn. She'll lament about having spent 9 months on bedrest just to see this day, and she'll scorn he who can't be named, pointing out that her party is the the party and he is just well (eye roll) absent, as usual. She did it all by herself Sheeple, don't forget that, all the planning and purchasing and now cue the kids to praise mommy and thank her for doing so for them. Now cut away to Steve who is chasing a pap away, and now cut in that fan video so Kate can dramatize how she overcame her fear of the keyboard and accomplished a life's ambition to work a computer on her own. Insert the soundtrack as she now recites her bucket list wish list of travel destinations. Oh wait, the kids, yes, insert some clips of then fighting, melting down, looking lost and miserable, now jack them up on sugar and let them bounce on the couch praising mommy, and end with Kate clutching a kleenex to her dry eyes as she bravely says "wow, gosh, like um I just don't get it, I mean I know they are 7 and all but honestly, can you believe it?" The end.

Lorrie said...

Maggie, I believe Jon has known about the video featuring his lovely ex for quite a while. The sheeple were jumping up and down, complaining that --gasp-- he laughed about it, and found it funny. Who cares? It IS funny. And everything that song says is true.

"Is This A Silly Question? said...

Not a silly question. From all I have read, no, they do not get paid. They are invited or their PR people beg for invite, but transportation (usually private plane), hotel and some meals are provided. They have special dinners, lunch and brunch. Some of the dinners are for very 'special' guests, not all invited, I assume the big money folks or real A listers. Sorry, I have no link, I have just read several articles about this over the years.

Wow, Maggie you are so right. I have never noticed that before. Her necks surely does look bad for her age. She certainly seems to have ruined her skin with all that tanning. She has aged so much in these past few years. That is a shame. She used to be very pretty.

"Then friend party YOU WILL SEE"? Good lord, filming the friends party? Every single birthday these kids have had since being born has been filmed. Even if they have 3 or 4 parties. So, once again, the tups get at least 2 parties, how many did the twins get again? One? It surely wasn't filmed. No wonder little Mady gets upset. That really is unfair to the twins.

Jenna Does said...

Everyone knows this but it takes more muscles to frown than it does to smile. You actually get more wrinkles by frowning than you do by smiling. I read that somewhere awhile ago. So Kate is doing herself NO favors by frowning all the time. Have you all noticed when she actually does smile, her smile never reaches her eyes? That's telling to me. When someone smiles, I like to see it all over their face. It means they are happy, well-adjusted, & content in the situation. Kate not smiling in any of the pictures, or "fake smiling" tells me she is either very uncomfortable, or saying "I'm too good for you"....Hmmm? I wonder which one.

When she is with her children, she rarely smiles unless the cameras are rolling & even then it's not reaching her eyes. When I'm with my kid, we are laughing, having a great time, & smiley. Not ALWAYS, but God, how can Kate always seem so...bitchy when she is with her kids? They 'are her life' aren't they? Shouldn't they make her happier than anything on this planet? I bet when she sees her bank account, she smiles, a REAL smile that reaches her eyes, & her whole body. It is like her kids make her miserable & she had them for one reason & one reason only. Profit.

I guarantee that if Kate gives TLC a hard time about them canceling her, we will see some of that footage. We will see some of it anyways. A disgruntled employee that Kate treated horribly, an assistant, someone at some point will release that footage. Kate should be scared that she has un-edited footage out there of her being a total diva, or an abuser, or a total BITCH to everyone. We'll see it someday. Maybe even her kids will ask for it. Who knows? They did not get rid of I bet. It's fodder, or leverage to keep Kate quiet, or to keep her in line or something. I don't know. But it's got to be there, collecting dust, just waiting...

It would be shocking if you could even get a narcissist to a professional, but assuming you could, they would deny the diagnosis because they would then have to admit they are flawed in some way and therefore to blame for some of their actions and that's never going to happen.

VIDEO of Kate and Steve at the Airport yesterday morning on Radar--you HAVE to see this!

JudyK said...

One more note on the video (if it doesn't get removed). The twins (Kate and Steve) are both chomping gum and I have long wondered if they secretly got married. They obviously were not expecting this video...it appears she's wearing a wedding ring on her LEFT hand. And, as usual, she's dismissive and rude.

The laws of fashion always seem to bend a bit -- or flat out go back in time -- on the day of the Kentucky Derby, but Kate Gosselin's Derby Day get-up would be criminal in any era. Or on any planet.

In an amazing feat, the reality show mom somehow outdid the horses -- who sported little men in funny costumes -- for craziest topper of the day. Her hat, reminiscent of a horse's nose and whiskers, perhaps shaded her from the sun. But, as was probably planned, did nothing to hide her from the media.

On Derby Day, Animal Kingdom won the race, but Kate Gosselin seized the photo finish.

Yeeks her hat is HUGE. Now if she'd worn that on the skyjump she would have floated down to earth safely and avoided all that trauma.

Administrator said...

So it's verified, Steve spent Mother's Day with Kate. How cozy. I remember the sheeple assuring us this event was Thursday-Friday and they both would be back in plenty of time for Mother's Day.

Not!

How his wife puts up with this....

AuntieAnn said...

Spending Mothers day with Steve takes priority over spending it with her children? I still say she's going to dump those kids on Jon for good when they're of no more use to her. That black hole is swirling with her cast-offs.

Moose Mania said...

It looks like it's the same large pearl ring she wore with the saloon girl outfit.

Administrator said...

For her to imply to her sheeple Jon took the kids for Mother's Day weekend, whoa is me :-(, is deplorable. She knows full well telling her sheeple that Jon has them will cause them to make the immediate leap that he is a meany who won't let her have her kids on her special day, she darn well knows it. She never said Jon has them BECAUSE I was away this weekend. She just said he has them, and as you would expect, the sheeple went batshit on Jon.

Excuse me, Jon didn't take them, Kate wasn't even HOME to have them!! If anything Jon did her a FAVOR so the kids didn't have to sit at home with 19-year-old nannies all weekend long. What a piece of work.

Not to mention Steve away from his family.

********

The Barnstable Brown Gala is paid for by the Barnstable twins Cyb and Trish. They may very well have corporate sponsors for their big event. They are pretty wealthy so maybe they don't need corporte sponsors. They have friends who are willing to fly their private jets to go pick up celebrities practically in their own back yards. It's part of the fun of being invited to the Gala.

The other Derby events - the parade, the lunch event, the gifting store, the Derby tickets themselves, hotel, etc. were paid for -at least
the major portion of it - by the Kentucky Derby Festival committee. They were Kate's co-hosts. As you can see from the posed pictures of Kate, there were corporate sponors of many of the events at Churchill Downs. Yum Foods, the parent company of Taco Bell, Pizza Hut and many other well known food establishments, pitched in a pretty penny to bring all this to the Derby festivities, I'm sure there were others, but Yum is the sponsor I remember. By the way, I believe Yum Foods is headquartered in Louisville, as is Papa John's Pizza.

Kate did not get paid per se, but she got a free ride the whole way.

I am basing these comments on how things were done in the past. It may have changed since then. Having grown up in L-ville, I think I've got this right.

Not true. Not true at all. Having taken Gross Anatomy and knowing how to muscle test just about every muscle in the body, this is patently false. And, you get many more wrinkles from smiling, especially if your smile goes all the way up to your eyes which of course, does not apply to Kate.
They call them "laugh lines" for a reason. Never heard of frown lines.

Sounds like Kate got home late on Sunday and ordered Chinese. Was it *organic* Chinese? And, you know she just has to insert the fact that this is so exceptional!!!! Who gives a shit? Does that make you a better mom or why the hell are you so defensive? Let's face it, those kids film so much that most of their food comes from craft service, room service or restos.
Cut me a break.
On the photos...yes, Kate should pitch for ProActive and her neck-gobble gobble. Between her risk of melanoma and Jon's risk of lung cancer, I hope they've appointed people to care for their kids if they're not around.
Seriously, when you have so many kids, why would you put yourself at such great risk?

Linda G. said...

Kate confirmed a theory for me early this morning on Twitter? Remember how we were all saying how could she NOT know when her own show is on or IF it's even on? You'd think that would be pretty important, right?

But she was consistently getting it wrong. Narcissists are much worse than normal people about taking things for granted. If you are the person they suck power and praise from, they totally assume you will always submit to it, forever and ever, amen.

If they have something that is given to them and achieves for them the fame, wealth, power, and/or ego-stroking they require, they assume it will be around forever and ever.

Why bother with dates and times and whatnot when it'll always be around? That would be like a normal person suddenly worrying about what day of the week Christmas will be on in 2027. Eh! It'll happen, anyway, why worry about that?

Someone twittered her this question this morning: When do new Kate Plus 8 episodes come back on?

First, she should have told this person new episodes have BEEN airing, since April. Secondly, she should have said next new one is Monday, May 30 at 10 pm.

Nope! The idiot's response:

First Monday in June I think but what do I know??! Better confirm with the officials lol!

(She tagged TLC on it.) So she loses an opportunity to PROMOTE the only income-producing event in her life on Twitter and doesn't even care enough to bother to see if she's right. Another Twitterer had to correct her.

She. Takes It. Totally. For Granted. The end.

Sorry Admin to post again... :)
About the JustJared pics...Nobody can fault Kate for having acne. That is just part of life. I would never stand up for Kate, ever, but I'm 35 & still get acne too. It SUCKS. It's stress related for me, & I use tea-tree oil. It works wonders, but still, it is not her fault. It could be oily skin, her so-called expensive skin products, her tanning! Tanning doesn't exactly help acne BTW! It could also be the moisturizer, or tanning product she uses on her face before tanning. Whatever it is, adult acne is a pain in the ass, & I can't fault her for that. The neck thing? That IS odd. That could be wrinkly from tanning too much, sunning too much, not using the right moisturizer, or not using toner. Toner, astringent, things with salicylic acids, green tea, that kind of thing is SO IMPORTANT as we age, especially on the neck area (NEVER SKIP THE NECK!!)!! Just an FYI!

Tucker's Mom: Google "frown lines." Lots of info on cause, treatment, how to get rid of them, photos, etc.!

After watching that video made by the sheeple, I'd really like to do an ethnographic/sociological study of these people, and what makes them tick - their lives, their value systems, and so forth.

This came from one of them (who was one of the well-wishers on the video):

@Kateplusmy8 Tell all the kidlets Barb said have a great bday!! Those little ones deserve it..come 2 nebraska so i can meet all of you guys.

Does this person really believe that Kate would wish the kids a happy birthday from her? The kids don't know her and couldn't care less. Would a sheeple be that delusional as to believe that if Kate went to Nebraska she would want to meet a stranger who spoke briefly on some pathetic amateur video?

I'd love to write a book, not dishing the dirt on Kate, but rather on the minds of the sheeple, particularly the teens who find her the true inspiration in their lives.

Linda G. said...

It WAS on the lineup for May 30. Now they've moved it back a week.

Either way doesn't bode well for her: she had ALREADY been taken out of sweeps week (which ends May 25) and now they've pushed her further back. She's hurting TLC. Anyone can see that from the ratings nose dive.

And none of this serves to explain why she can't be bothered to know when her own show is on. TLC has to TWEET her to tell her, LOL.

Vanessa said...

OT, but Tom Hanks said on Oprah last week that he likes to get ONE OR TWO tweets out PER WEEK!

I just love how she's such a bitch to that "pap" at the airport, but then is all sugar and spice with her twit fans. Can she not, just for ONCE, be the Fake Kate with the lonely ol'pap? AND WHO THE HELL WAS WAITING THERE WITH FLOWERS FOR HER???

Beatrice was smart because besides the wedding- all people could talk about was her hideous hat. We all know Khate could never win a best dressed- so why not go for the worst? I have already seen coverage on her on comcast and Huffington Post. I think it's ridiculous that so much of her publicity is negative to keep her "relevant" like DWTS, how she dresses, the fact that she chose this event over being with her kids, her twitter account- which I believe has more people NOT supporting her than do. PLEASE cancel this bi**h! I also think it would be funny if Quints by Surprise received double the ratings than Khate + 8- although again, I don't want to play into child exploitation- but at least this couple is ice from what little I have seen.

They call them "laugh lines" for a reason. Never heard of frown lines.

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

Really? We always called those two vertical lines between the eyebrows "frown lines" because, well, they show up when you're frowning! Isn't that why women get botox treatments there -- to erase the frown lines?
*****
Hmm...dunno, they look more like anger lines (fitting for Kate) but they're nowhere near the mouth. At any rate, people who smile a lot get laugh lines and use more muscles!

Moose Mania said...

"If she really was going to start "Giving Back" on a regular basis, she could have mentioned how she is involved in that.....working in food pantries etc."

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

She couldn't say that because it isn't true, and she knows that she would be called out on it. She really has to be careful how she spins those stories. She might have to eat her words and actually start doing what she claims she is doing, and you know that's never going to happen!

VIDEO of Kate and Steve at the Airport yesterday morning on Radar--you HAVE to see this!

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

Where is this video?

JudyK said...

Mandy, I'm sorry. I've lost the ability to drag links w/ this computer. Just GOOGLE RadarOnline.com...she's now at the BOTTOM of page 1...by the time you get there, you may need to go to page 2.

Mel said...

Click on my name for the RadarOnLine video link. At least I hope that's it...

Interesting. She was clearly annoyed, but Steve did NOTHING to stop it.

At the very beginning of the video, the still photo man hands her a bouquet of flowers and then starts snapping photos. They seemed to be unaware of the video guy until a little later. Kind of looked like a set-up between him and the video guy.

Troy Chula Vista said...

The ROL video is mixed in with the "article" that shows her in her Bird hat. DON'T waste your time though. It's nothing worth your time. She is just roaming through the airport with purseboy (and no police escort, hmmmm) and the camera man asks a couple stupid questions about the horses and did she have a good time. Real hard hitting Paps. The comments are funny though, the days of page after page of ass kissing and trying to flame all the haters is GONE. Now most comments are "Kate sucks, etc" with the occasional sheep that has strayed from the pack and adds the stale line "leave her alone, she is trying to provide.. blah blah"

Moose Mania said...

LOL! Frown lines aren't near the mouth. They are between the eyebrows, and Kate really has a bad case of them! Make a scowling face, and you can feel them right above your nose!

Yikes, I just went back to those close-ups that I have linked above (justjared). If you go to one of them and then hold down your CTRL key while clicking on your plus key a few times, it will zoom in even further (then, just hold CTRL and click on zero key to return to regular size, or click on the minus key to reduce).

So, wow, I zoomed in a bit more and her skin is awful! She has layered on the makeup over a very pimply face. Lines, wrinkles and dark circles under her eyes. I kept saying she seemed very tired, no energy. Cheap, tacky earrings that do not match the fugly necklace and neither match the dress.

The worst part is that neck! It's decades beyond her actual age! I envision lots of turtlenecks in her future, just like the daily standard uniform of - ironically - Gloria Allred. Have you ever noticed how she wears mock turtlenecks 365 days a year, no matter how hot it is outside? I've always suspected a very wrinkly neck. Khate's future: Shar Pei neck!

Look at the response timed 8:51am. I just took some prescription strength headache meds and I read, "17 New episode of #KatePlus8 airs Monday, June 6! Can't wait!" Oh, wow, 17 new episodes--my heart sunk big time and I got furious. Than I finally re-read it and figured out the 17 belong to that person's twitter name. It was strange how it fell just before "New epidoses". Thank God it is not true.
Meds please kick in quickly!

AuntieAnn said...

After reading Purseboy Trustee's comments about Steve and the possible invested role he may be playing in the Gosselin family, I just watched that video with a twinge of contempt for the man. Okay more than a twinge. Not that I liked him before but there is something about him now that makes me more suspicious of his motives. He looks like the cat that ate the canary. Why was he not responding to the photographer's comments and strong-arming him - a la Admin - out of the way to protect his charge?

I still think Jon was right two years ago...there's something not kosher with Steve and Kate. They must be waiting to spring the "surprise" announcement as a last ditch effort for a ratings boost.

Bluenoser said...

Did Kate go out of her way to get fugly hat or was it given to her as a joke. A joke Kate wasn't in on. It looks like an ostrich sat on her head.

Moose Mania said...

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

She really does have a charming, bubbly personality, doesn't she? Did she even say thank you for the flowers? Couldn't she even stop long enough to look at the photographer when he was talking? I'm surprised that she could even walk, mumble and chew at the same time.

Linda G. said...

I hate the fact that the fug girls even included Kate in their lineup of fugs, but I love the fact that they wasted no words on her and a few commenters are surprised she's even still around. Ha!

When was the last new episode? Early May? So a month between episodes, huh?

Sharon said...

I totally agree that Kate and Steve's arrangement is not kosher! I think Kate fell in love with Steve from the start, that's why she kicked Jon to the curb. None of us know for sure if they are indeed doing the nasty, but from all appearances they are and if not, she sure does enjoy the speculation.
I think Steve's wife is all tied up in legal from TLC and that is why she doesn't speak up one way or another. Whatever, I bet the money is somewhat easing her pain, at least, I hope it is....

Moose Mania said...

And I swear I read it takes more muscles to frown than it does to smile. That's why everyone always says to smile more, not frown.
++++++++++++++++

It doesn't take any muscles to just sit there with a dumb look on your face, and Kate does that quite well!

Laurie M. said...

Off topic, but hopefully someone can answer. The Twazzup feed for Kate's twitter doesn't seem to work anymore. Did I miss something? Was it stopped?

Doesn't it seem that this interview would have been a perfect time to promote all her philanthropic efforts and her "giving back"!! If she really was involved in koala rescue, she could have mentioned that. If she really was going to start "Giving Back" on a regular basis, she could have mentioned how she is involved in that.....working in food pantries etc. She could have told the interviewer this is her year to really give back to the community that so generously gave to her, then she could tell them how she is diligently working in that direction. BUT, since it is all a crock of S__, I guess she forgot to mention it.
-----------------------------
GREAT point!!!!! That would have sounded smart, charitable, & intelligent. Everything Kate is NOT. She can't answer questions however, unless they are pre-approved & she had prepared for them.
~Hippie Chick~

******

Not only that, but the Barnstable Brown Gala was a fund raiser for Diabetes and Obesity research. If Kate had taken a moment to think about that, she might have said what a delight it was to be a part of this effort to find a cure for diabetes, and she was honored to be in attendance with such a stellar group of people
who wanted to have a good time while making a difference in peoples' lives.

Ya see, Kate, the party wasn't about you, it was about helping people with diseases. Got it?

@kateplusmy8 Kate:) ive made the sextuplets a video for their birthday! if i send a link could you show them it? :)x

Another delusional one. Do these teens really think that Kate would bother to show her kids a video? Do they believe that they have some kind of special connection with her that she would care enough to gather all of them together to watch a birthday greeting from someone they don't know? In a way, it's kind of sad.

That would have been a perfect answer for an interview. Here's the thing...we know that she could never come up with something like that, but shouldn't her handlers/pr people also know by now that her verbal skills are zero, and brief her accordingly, giving her appropriate responses for an interviewer's questions?

Linda G. said...

Those close-ups show the weird line/scar on her chin. What the hell is that thing? It looks neat enough to have been surgical. It's a bit browner than her skin. Weird.

And no, I don't think she's hosting The View, especially not during sweeps week. That's something that person twittering is 4 twats or something like that started saying this morning on Kate's mention feed. I get the sense it's VERY sarcastic.

I wish no one would take video or pics of her anymore, especially stuff like that airport one. First of all, who the hell cares? Oh, it's a woman walking and chomping gum and acting grumpy. Big whoop. But mostly it feeds into her need to both be paid attention to and to make herself out to be some sort of victim. WOE IS ME, THE HORDES OF PAPS. I mean, this one guy.

A hundred bucks says she dumped those flowers in the nearest trash can before she got on the plane.

But seriously, no one should photograph or video tape this woman. Same reason I think the critics should stop posting to her twitter feed. Let her be as lonely as she SHOULD be.

fidosmommy said...

Kate has had some minor skin surgeries done since the show started. I don't know about that scar/line under her chin, but I do know she had a mole removed from the right side of her neck. In the Pancakes for Breakfast episode (I think it was anyway), she's standing cooking pancakes and turkey bacon at the stove and it's quite visible. So, she might have had some other things taken care of too. Or maybe the scar/line is from a childhood injury? Don't know.

Sorry if this is so off topic, but it gives some insight into TLC. I never watched the show Miami Ink, but I am aware of it. Although, I didn't even realize it was off the air and there were business disputes, thanks to TLC entering their lives:

Ami James ends TLC feud, heads to New York for Miami Ink spin-off


Excerpts:

Former Miami Ink star Ami James has put aside bad blood with his former reality-tv bosses to step before the cameras in a new tattoo series set in Manhattan.

NY Ink debuts next month on Discovery Communications’ TLC, but the drama has been playing out since the cable network dropped Miami Ink in 2008 after three years on the air. At the time, James and co-star Chris Nuñez said they had tired of their Miami Ink run, with James telling the Miami Herald, “I will never work for Discovery again."

Now James is back with the network, but Nuñez and most of his co-stars and co-workers from South Beach’s old Miami Ink tattoo studio weren’t invited to join the new cast.
Instead, the show will focus on James — always portrayed as the hard-nosed leader in South Beach — managing a new group of artists in New York’s SoHo district.

“As much as I wanted to have my boys come up with me [TLC] wanted to start something fresh and new,’’ James said. “Because we were best friends already for 16 years, it was hard for us to make drama."

----------

James and Nuñez split as partners about six months ago, with James buying out his longtime friend’s shares in both the tattoo shop and a Love Hate bar they opened off Fifth Street. “I’m going to be opening my own space in the near future" in Miami, Nuñez said this week.

Of the Miami Ink cast, only James and late-addition Tim Hendricks will be appear in the New York spin-off. TLC ordered eight episodes of NY Ink, and shooting is scheduled to end within two weeks. The show premieres June 2, and James said new Discovery management convinced him to rejoin TLC.

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

So, yet again, TLC gets involved in people’s lives and takes over. These guys were friends for 16 years and business partners, but that didn't work for the show, so they got rid of everyone they didn’t want.

I wonder what other changes the new Discovery management will bring about. Obviously, they are focusing a lot on all their new shows. They seem to be done with Khate and just running out the contract.

Gag me said...

@Kateplusmy8 Tell all the kidlets Barb said have a great bday!! Those little ones deserve it..come 2 nebraska so i can meet all of you guys.

Does this person really believe that Kate would wish the kids a happy birthday from her? The kids don't know her and couldn't care less. Would a sheeple be that delusional as to believe that if Kate went to Nebraska she would want to meet a stranger who spoke briefly on some pathetic amateur video?
_________________________

I think Barb is the saddest of the adult sad sacks tweeting to Kate. She says the most inane things trying to get a response from Kate and has tweeted many times to Kate complaining that Kate never tweets her back.

She's the kind I'd worry about...getting angry/sad/depressed when she expects Kate to tweet her and doesn't. Who knows what's going on in her head?

Betty Jane said...

Too funny, OMG, does he have his "gun" up between her legs? lol lol lol lol

She was a stylist' nightmare, honestly, she is just so "stupid and trashy"....no way can she continue, she looked like an ass, she has the face of a horse and she deserves everything terrible that happens because she thought she was important and that Jon and her kids weren't.

Cannot imagine how those twins feel with their mother's tits hanging out of that dress.

Saw The View with Michael Douglas and he said something (I don't know if it was from today or last Friday)...that his wife Catherine decided to tell the Press about her mental problems because "the truth always comes out anyhow in their business" and I thought about Kate and her lies. Does she really think that most of what she has done/lied about is not going to be exploited at some point?

Some pissed off person she did wrong to is going to write the book of all books or give an interview about what really goes on with her and Steve plus how she treats those kids.

My heart goes out to little Aaden, he has to really "act on that sofa" because that is what is needed to try to make the viewers appear to think those kids had fun. Also I notice that Mady does the same thing, while Cara just hugs herself, which is so sad. Cara stares at Mady while she talks and Cara is turned away from the camera.

Those kids, especially the twins, must hear from their classmates some type of comments. It is impossible not to have that going on in school. Has to be just "comments that are dropped" that only the twins hear and no one else does. It is the saddest thing about that family.

No where, no how do you ever hear what each individual child is about, never. They are lumped together like the twins are nannies and the 6 are identical to the point of having 6 heads, 2 hands and 2 feet. Sad, very sad.

Kate looked more than like an ass at the Derby and the events, she looked pathetic like she went to the consignment shop and bought something to wear to the events. No one styled her unless they intentionally styled her to look like trash and classless.

Her face is too long when they photograph her from the profile angle and she needs some photographer or pap person to get her head on.

Even Steve did not say to her, after what they have gone thru together and even chew the same gum, hey matey you look like crap and you could be a hooker at these events?

Very sad, but more so for the kids. The twins are almost 11 and their boy classmates seeing Multiple Mommy hanging out aren't saying something? Like "when do you buy your tits"

Sadder than anyone knows, except Jon, he realizes she is a terrible/horrible roll model for those twins, especially now in this time in their life.

It is all too sad for the younger tups who will, due to being so isolated, view Multiples Mommy as the "normal" and that is even sadder. Wonder what those 3 boys think? They are so aware of her, that is their first experience with women is their big tited Mom and her wanting to show them to the world, all the time. Very sick, she may as well put that Pole in the Basement now, cause that is where she is headed. No one will hire her to be a nurse or any position in a doc's office or a hospital. Too much baggage. Well she could work in the coroner's dept. No complaints down there, I guess.

Linda G: Wow, I never noticed that scar before, what am I blind, lol? I still can't get over that neck. My mother's neck looks better than that. As far as The View, sheeple chains might be being yanked, lol. Also, I agree with you about letting her twitter page go silent except for the five sheeple and their multiple accounts telling Khate how great she is all day until they bore themselves to death. I think that will happen very soon.

Thanks Moose Mania. It must be something on my end. Thanks for the reply!

I don't believe she is going to be on The View. I think it was just a sarcastic rumor started on Twitter.

Here is the line-up for this week. Next week's line-up is not available:

Then if you google Kate Gosselin and The View and hit news, there's nothing new.

Mimi to 3 said...

I think the day was changed for Kate's next show because it was originally scheduled for Memorial Day Weekend. TLC may want to see just how bad the ratings are with no excuses like 'there were tornadoes everywhere', 'Osama was killed' or it was Easter.

It has always baffled me how she can be so incredibly rude when the paps are around. I can understand that they annoy the hell out of you, but she chose this life, it is part of it. She should also realize both fans and non fans see her nasty behavior and know that is the real Kate, warts and all. She really should try a little harder to at least pretend to enjoy this little life she has carved out for herself. Oh and does Steve EVER smile?

LOL, Linda G! I was thinking the same thing. I would bet my money on a bobtail nag that she dumped them. She didn't even look at the flowers, much less acknowledge the person who gave them to her and wished her a happy Mother's Day. How rude can one person be?

I've been saying for some time that the critics should put an end to this twittering nonsense. It's always the same old, same old. It makes them look as bad as the sheeple. Just let it go, and let the seven sheeple carry on among themselves. Sheesh!

Some of the tweeters are saying she is going to be on The View during May sweeps. Has it been confirmed? I have no idea, but if she can worm her way in there, she'll do it!

Batterednotbroken said...

Wow.Tried to post a comment and this came up.."Url contains illegal characters" What's that all about? .

I'm assuming that Kate did not get paid to go to the Derby. Although she did get a diamond necklace and designer purse out of the gifting room,but those don't pay the bills!! Wonder how long her money will hold out and I wonder how many more paychecks she will get from TLC??

Who the hell does that to their kids? Unless your parent live far, far away, why wouldn't it be a given that you child spend mother's day with the mother and vice versa?

It also appears Kate will be filming the crap out of the tups for their birthday. Let's see if Mady complains about their many celebrations again.

E-town Neighbor said...

I was looking at that video of Kate in the airport, and I just don't understand her smugness and lack of courtesy. She wasn't brought up to be rude. That's not the way we are here. No matter how tough a day I might have had, if someone had handed me flowers in an airport, I would have stopped, thanked the person, smiled, and wished him a happy day (or whatever), even a pap who was just doing his job. That's the way I was raised. Obviously, somewhere along the way, Kate has forgotten to treat everyone with politeness, even those who are rude to you - not because they are nice, but because you are.

If there is such a thing as karma, Kate better be careful. If you step on people in this life you are going to come back as a cockroach.

so sick of her said...

I checked the schedule grid(Comcast) cable, you can go up to 2 weeks, and Kate is not on the View, or any other talk show(through like the 22nd). Kate made a tweet reference to that pink dress(think it was the one in the parade) as had previously woren it on the View. Kate has made several mentions of the View tweeting, tryin to hope that Sherri would say something to Bill or Barbara, to get herself on there. I do believe that TLC is tryin to get rid of her. Why wait 3-4 weeks, to put on another show, and on Memorial day, not too many people will tune in. What for more of the same crap, that people have seen at least twic already. Come on, how many times are we gonna see, them shop, birthday party, go to the zoo, ride a horse, and then have the whole show center on Kate, either whineing, complaining or doing some kind of Drama Queening. or watch a realist of reality show, having a mom who claims that she is just like every other mom. (grifting, doing nothing most of the day, nannies, house cleaners, landscapers etc. Who wants to watch that? NOT ME!

E-town Neighbor said...

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

Yes. I still think they're not an item. He's in it for the money, attention, travel, and just being a "big shot." When TLC pulls the plug, he's out of there faster than a prairie fire with a tailwind.

Administrator said...

I don't think they are a couple either. I think Steve is Isaac Stern and Kate is his fiddle. He knows what makes her tick.

I think we forget sometimes just how much money he too is making off this entire situation. This is a full-time, lucrative position that comes with lots of VIP perks to boot. He got a free trip home to New Zealand to see his parents for example--there is a LOT in it for him.

Bubbles said...

I don't think Steve will leave when TLC pulls the plug. I think he'll be the one pitching Kate and the kids to other networks. I think it's likely that they'll end up on a much lesser network for a season or two before they're completely gone.

url said...

I agree that Steve is in it for the money, but I think he's the main reason for J&K's breakup. Kart appears to be very dependent upon Steve. She even looks for his attention when he is on or off camera. If there is any type of sexual relationship, he's just leading her on and using her. As soon as TLC is finished with her, he'll be gone also.

Linda G. said...

I agree with E-Town and Admin, and I have never believed they are romantically linked. I agree this is very lucrative for Steve. Also, she strikes me as someone not very into sex. It's icky. She's very....cold and controlled and passionless.

She probably DOES love people thinking they are a secret couple, though.

Frown vs Smile said...

Tucker's Mom said... Everyone knows this but it takes more muscles to frown than it does to smile.

Not true. Not true at all. Having taken Gross Anatomy and knowing how to muscle test just about every muscle in the body, this is patently false. And, you get many more wrinkles from smiling, especially if your smile goes all the way up to your eyes which of course, does not apply to Kate.
They call them "laugh lines" for a reason. Never heard of frown lines

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

According to the medical books, Hippie chick was right...... it takes 43 muscles to frown, and only 17 muscles to smile! I'm not sure what Gross Anatomy class was taken, but it has been cited over and over again that it physically takes more muscles to frown than to smile!

_________________________________________

I agree with you, Linda G. about Kate appearing to be frigid. I always thought she felt sex is gross because it's messy (messes up ones hair, their make up etc...). But at the same time, she and Steve are together an awful lot.

Would all the money, trips and perks be worth it to him? I mean look at the beating his professional reputation must have taken since he took this job with her. Wasn't he once a professional security expert who was part owner in a security company? Would carrying Kate's purse around give him more money and power than owning a security firm?

And what about his family? I mean the sacrafices he's made, time away from his wife and his kids for this nit wit?

I just don't know. Yes, Kate seems like a cold fish when it comes to men, but maybe Steve doesn't take her crap the way Jon did and that turns her on?

Who knows, really. When it comes to Kate and Rat Claw, there's more questions than answers I guess.

According to the medical books, Hippie chick was right...... it takes 43 muscles to frown, and only 17 muscles to smile! I'm not sure what Gross Anatomy class was taken, but it has been cited over and over again that it physically takes more muscles to frown than to smile!

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

This has been debated for a very long time. According to Dr. David Song, a plastic surgeon and Associate Professor at the University of Chicago Hospitals, it takes twelve muscles to smile, eleven to frown. That doesn't necessarily mean that smiling is harder to do because you could compare the masses of smiling muscles to get a rough estimate of energy consumption (assuming the muscles all consume energy at the same rate per unit mass).

Regardless, it's just more fun to smile!

My question is how can you lead somebondy on for years? I always thought of affairs as crimes of opportunity. The spouse knows.......

Maggie said...

Well I think I caught Kate in a big, fat lie. All verified by her own twitter remarks and her interview with Courier-Journal.com interview. In the interview she clearly states that she arrived at the Derby on Wednesday, May 4. And that makes sense because the luncheon was on Thursday.

But on May 4, her first twitter comment of the day was, "Home sweet home. I was took my little girls out west. I like 2 take kids in small groups 1/yr nonfilmed 2 spend qual X tog.had a total blast! Then much later on Wed. May 4, she twittered, "Well,GN.Lots2do be4 I'moff2the races(derby, lol) in next few days..can u hearme galloping2bed? Gotta get sleep&get house back in order 1st." Then a few more twits later on May 4 she wrote, "Phone is dying. No charger nearby. Will tweet y'all later (gettin ready to go to derby lol)!" She said Good night on May 4th and a few more comments later she again said that she was "gettin ready to go to derby".

What a freakin liar. She said she arrived on Wed. May 4 in KY. So let's say she arrived late in KY on Wed. Why then would she write on Wed. May 4th good night...lots to do before I go to the derby in the next few days.(exact quote above).

Am I thinking right and she has been caught red handed in a huge lie. And I tell you why she lied. Because she was gone from her home either from April 27 or 28 and didn't return home until May 4. How can she tell her devoted fans that she is leaving again that very day (May 4) to be gone until the evening of May 8. She left either on April 27th or 28th for trip with the girls and returned home on Wed, May 4. Then left sometime May 4 and returned on the 8th.

She was gone around 11 to 12 days--practically 2 weeks without seeing the majority of her children. Some mother and some liar she is.

What does everyone think?

On a lighter note I missed DWTS. Anyone have an update. Who might go or stay?

Administrator said...

I think she's lying. I think she is a compulsive liar and needs to get help. She lies for NO REASON. She lies about not "really" taking the kids to Philly when she has REALLY taken them tons of times. Why lie about that???

Maggie, you act so shocked she would lie. When does the woman not lie? She has made an entire career out of lying. This is just yet another. For all we know she sent the kids home from out west with the nanny and bet you anything she flew straight to Kentucky.

As I said last week, I found it shocking and baffling the person I worked for would arrive in New York for an event on Saturday on TUESDAY. WTF could you possibly do with yourself for four days? I guess this is what celebs just do, ones trying to milk every free dollar they can anyway.

Is it possible that she was there, and when she said "Derby" she meant the actual event? She didn't say that she had lots to do before she goes to Kentucky.

Administrator said...

For as much as Kate has exploited her kids, I actaully think she is being exploited by a great many people in her life. Steve is at the top of the list, as is TLC. I think there are some smart and manipulative people in Steve and TLC who see dollar signs when they look at a very mentally unstable woman and could give a rat's behind about her, or her kids.

I think the exploitation of Kate is just not quite as shocking or disturbing because she is an adult and has chosen to be exploited. But it's still sad and uncomfortable to watch. Like many have said, you almost feel sorry for her. She doesn't seem to realize how exploited she is. If she does she hides it well. In a strange way, Kate is a victim in this, too.

The difference is, and it's a big one, she is a consenting adult and can choose to allow others to use her, as pathetic as that is.

Administrator said...

Moose I thought that first at too, except she said home sweet HOME, and gotta get the HOUSE in order. She said this all while in KY. How can you get your house in order from hundreds of miles away? She was clearly implying she was home in PA.

Unless she means, I need to call the nanny and tell HER to get the house in order. That's a stretch if I ever heard one.

She lied, period. And essentially, with the exception of the 3 girls on her trip, if that trip even is real (jury's out on that one), she left all the other 5 kids for God knows how long.

Administrator said...

Oh and to top it all off, has the audacity to put it out there how sad she is Jon has the kids on mother's day.

I don't know, maybe if you were actually in the same state as your children you would get to see them a bit more.

Susantoyota said...

I think she went and had her first boob job upgraded. Why? There's no pap pictures of her and the sextuplet girls. She needed time for the procedure and to recover before coming home and then going off again to the Derby. It's been proven before that she can move around without attention if she wants.

Well, if she was writing Wed. night from KY, why would she write, "Gotta get sleep & get house back in order 1st." She can't get her house back in order first (from being gone for days prior) if she is already in KY.

Administrator said...

It would not be at all unusual to get a few nips and tucks before a big event. The shoe fits.

"Out West"??? Well we are the land of nips and tucks out here. Maybe she did take the kids while she was recovering. I'm sure that was good fun for them.....not. And they missed school too, wonderful!

Administrator said...

She's been quiet all day on Twitter by the way ever since she and TLC confused everyone with the next airdates. I agree with what others have said, it is unbelievable how oblivious she is to her own show. 8,000 twitter fans is at least SOMETHING to advertise to, and for free. No respectable celeb would ever be caught dead not knowing when, where, the network, etc etc their show/project is airing. She is the worst at self promotion.

Even in interviews when she is on to promote something if you notice, she doesn't seem to really be concerned with plugging anything. If they happen to bring it up that's fine, but she is just as happy to talk about whatever um, um irrelevant subject.

It really does speak to her arrogance. Ratings are in the toilet and she is all la-dee-da when is my show on again??? If she doesn't know, how does she expect anyone else to???

Does it seem to everyone like she is over-compensating? The worse the ratings get, the more she acts like she is living in an inflatable bubble ball filled with flowers and rainbows and organic chocolate bars. Bubble Kate.

Not even the shoes fit. Her toes are always hanging out the over the front of them. How can that be comfortable?

Team Kids said...

Hmmm...if I saw correctly TLC is having a huge "new summer season kick off" over Memorial Day week and guess who's show was missing from the line up?? K8's show wasn't pushed into June because of low viewer concern over Memorial Day it's because of the already low viewership would stink up TLC's big kick off week!

I'm confused said...

I was reading the discussion here about Kate's turkey neck/lines/wrinkles. She really does have pronounced lines. When I visited my grandma today, I looked at her neck. Not a single line or wrinkle...none on my neck, either. I never really thought about it before. I asked her about it, and she said, "those wrinkles are inherited. You have good genes." I laughed. Then she showed me a picture of her mother when she was in her 80s. No retouching was done then, and her neck (and face) was as smooth as a baby's behind.

I just kind of laughed off the idea of genetics playing a role, and looked it up on the internet. I guess Granny knew what she was talking about and I found several articles that confirmed it: "Depending on how quickly you age, wrinkles may start to show up early or late in life. Another determining factor in relation to when you will start to develop wrinkles around the neck area is genetics. If your parents started to display wrinkles around the neck at an early age, chances are you will as well."

Ah, the wisdom that comes with age! Thank goodness, for some, the turkey neck doesn't!

Isn't it called Denial?

AuntieAnn said...

Don't know if this has already mentioned, but I've been thinking that since the six turn seven tomorrow and since Kate was being escorted around by Steve on Sunday, maybe Jon decided to celebrate their birthday quietly and forget about Mothers Day. 'Quietly' because I'm pretty sure that whatever their father might have done with them, she'll try to out-do anyway. Maybe throw six parties this year instead of only three like last year?

And concerning her not knowing when her show airs almost verifies that she and TLC are incommunicado or nearly there. So, yes she probably is in denial and the suits probably don't give a shit.

Linda G. said...

Oh I definitely think she was getting some light work done. She didn't have time to recover from anything invasive or major, but I'm quite sure she was at a spa receiving treatments in the week leading up to the Derby trip.

The fact that her own tweets don't match her own words in the article just nails it for me. Why lie about where she was on twitter unless she didn't want people knowing she wasn't even seeing her kids for a long stretch? Some of her slightly sane fans might even be given pause if they truly knew how little this woman has to do with her kids.

Troy Chula Vista said...

I thought I would throw a little sheeple speak into this calm pond of HATE.. ha ha. Find a trash can before reading:

"Regarding Jon and the comments made here about him......the thing is, I'd say AT LEAST 75% of what is said around here about Jon is wishing he would just 'man up' and stop trying to destroy Kate. We would all like nothing better than for him to become a responsible, mature father to the 8. Whereas Kate has moved on from the divorce, he obviously hasn't done so or he wouldn't still be trying to hurt her. Just because he's got a girlfriend doesn't mean he's really moved on."

Are you still reading...?

I think it's part overcompensation and narcissism. She showed up with the kids, did her part, and collected her/their paycheck or will when the episode airs? She's done her part, no need to bother with all the pesky details of ratings, advertising, promoting the episode, etc. Especially since TLC is not responding to her ever enlarging bucket list of all the places they should send her cause she wants to go--she might be the one thing that makes a Buckingham Palace guard laugh/lose their concentration. Now if TLC wanted to send her to the space station . . . .

Maggie said...

Kate gave an interview at courier-journal.com. I think it is under video interviews. In that interview she states, "They (kids) are jealous they are not here. I can tell you that." And she said, "I never done horse racing before." She is such an idiot. I think she meant horse race betting. And is she in competition with her 6 and 10 year olds? They don't even know what the Kentucky Derby is. How can they be jealous of her.

C said...

Hahahahaha! Love it! The sheeple really do live in an alternate universe, don't they?

It's awful the way Jon hasn't moved on. After all, it's not like he has a legitimate, non-exploitive job...oh wait, he does. Well, he very recently Twitter-Tweeted personal and possibly dangerous information about his children...oh snap, that wasn't Jon. But he's still the one who takes passive-aggressive little pot-shots at Kate in interview--no, no, that isn't Jon either.

I must have been living in a cave and missed all those television interviews where he threw her under the bus, telling the viewing public that the kids just don't want to be with her. Could someone post links to those? I'd like to catch up...

"Just because he's got a girlfriend doesn't mean he's really moved on."

888888888888888888888

Um...then what does it really mean? That he wants to go back to Kate, and Ellen is nothing more than a brief interlude? That he's using Ellen to make Kate jealous? That Ellen has hog-tied Jon, forcing him to stay with her when it's Kate he really wants?

I'd be interested in hearing from the all-knowing, wise and clairvoyant sheeple what it REALLY means!
