Discussion Thread: RV Trip 8/29/11

Kate Plus 8
RV Trip
9 p.m. EST, TLC, TV-PG

The Gosselins, Ashley and Jamie are on the road again, traveling across middle America in an RV for 2 weeks -- and Kate's driving! Witness the family like you've never seen them before, visiting the nation's most beautiful landscapes and attractions.

Ooo, I hope we get to see 'My Rushmore'!

Meanwhile, Hollywood Reporter has an excellent article about how the suicide of Real Housewives' cast member Russell Armstrong has shed some light on how exploitive reality television can be--not just on children, but everyone participating.

Says Hollywood Reporter:
"All about me" has become the mantra of reality TV, even if it means opening up painful private lives to cameras and sacrificing family and friends -- and even, perhaps, if it means someone might die.
...."This is the worst-case scenario for the reality TV business," says one executive who declined to be named. "It's a very public suicide of a guy who was made to look absolutely terrible on that show. This death is causing people to think hard about the kinds of people we make shows about and whether they are equipped psychologically to be television stars."....While it would be simplistic to claim that Bravo or Real Housewives of Beverly Hills producers Evolution Media were responsible for his death, they are operating in an environment that remains unregulated and inadequately scrutinized. On many shows, for instance, participants sign "360-degree deals," notes Hayden Meyer, a partner and head of alternative TV at agency APA. That means the production company can take a percentage of any income a performer earns from books, appearances and the like.
Unfettered by contracts with AFTRA, SAG and other guilds, most networks have the right to replay each episode as often as they wish or to "repackage" series to create new episodes, without paying participants extra cash. "It's a buyer's market," Meyer laments.

Kate's tweet: plagiarism is illegal!

It's also illegal to park in a fire zone, Kate.

Remember how Kate kept talking about how 'tiny' the RV's were? Ha! Funny that TLC is saying it was 'huge'. Everything she says is a lie.

______________________________________________
Probably (relatively speaking) if you have camera crews and sound equipment packed in there with you it would be a mite crowded, but you're right on about the lie-for-drama bit. Wonder how long before the "well, the crew was with us so it seemed smaller" spin happens. Place bets now!

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

Ugh! I can't wait for her pseudo-drama-travel- sideshow-carnival act to just go away.

Peacefully.

Westcoaster said...

Ah, so plagiarism is illegal? So might be passing off long published recipes as your very own work. Tweet that Kate. Wonder if she knows her tweets are being republished on blogs everywhere. As for running, seriously doubt she 'ran' back from the bus drop-off. Hope the ratings for tonight's dramafest tank, and with power outages from Irene, perhaps they will.

Ishkabibble said...

She tweeted: Kateplusmy8 Kate Gosselin
Good am,friends! Just bak from my run home from bus stop!Interesting run in hurricane debris along the road!:( Have a good day!C U later!

Does that mean she made the kids walk to the bus stop, and than ran home? Or did the not-a-nanny drive them in the blue bus and she ran home?

No Regrets said...

Sorry, I do not believe she drove this RV for any distance, other than to just film it. She says it is just the same as driving her SUV. Maybe it is just me, but I have driven one about that size and it is NO WAY like driving an SUV. Another one of her "can do" bs things. Like the gate and chicken wire fence. LOL

Beth said...

Obtaining a minor's name and address over the internet is also illegal. Kate doesn't worry about the things that she does to break the law.

Westcoaster said...

Oh pleeze, Kate driving an RV, only for the camera action I am quite sure. Remember when she would not drive the big blue van, she was too ascared to get behind the wheel, another thing that Jon had to do for her.

As for the terribly sad story of the suicide of one of those Housewives husband's, if there is nothing that says that this reality show crap has to stop, then I don't know what else it could be. This is just madness.

Twittering and a Twattering said...

princessdh
@CJWhodunit @TLC @Facebook @Kateplusmy8 This isnt identity theft, it isnt plagiarism, it isnt "illegal" in any state or federal jurisdiction

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

Isn't it a felony to assume the identity of someone else on the internet?

TLC stinks said...

I read on a sheeple site that they saw two RV's in a clip. So if you split up kids and crew it wasn't that crowded plus I'm betting they stayed at hotels. The RV was just transportation. I'm sure the only time she was behind the wheel was when the camera was on. I mean, get real. The woman can't even drive herself to NYC or to an airport, but I'm she does have to take the blue van out on occasion now that Jon's not around.

The Wheels On The (PA) Bus said...

joseptent
@Kateplusmy8 Kate, way your kids to proud ? :-) That's something important. I'm attracted then :-)

Huh? To whom or what is he attracted?

"but I'm she does have to take the blue van out on occasion now that Jon's not around."

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

Since her SUV isn't a 9-passenger, I would believe that anytime she takes all kids away at one time, she uses the big blue bus, which may be every day when she drives them to the bus stop. Will the nannies be dismissed now that she's unemployed?

It was reported that when filming last year's "back to school" bullshit, Steve drove the blue van to the shopping mall, where Kate got out and into the driver's seat so she could be the one driving on film.

@facebook @TLC PLEASE remove Facebook faker! I DO NOT have Facebook & some1 is stealing&publishing my tweets...plagiarism is illegal!

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

Is she really that stooopid!

If you want to file a complaint with Facebook, a tweet isnt the way to do it! And what the sam-holy-hell is TLC and Disc Inc gonna do about it? They have no right to touch anyone's anything on FB or anywhere else. Because The Gosselin Woman tweets it, therefore it shall be done??!!??

WHAT AN IGNORANT, LOW IQ, POMPOUS, CONCEITED, ILL INFORMED, ILL BRED, MENTALLY ILL, FREAK SHE IS. And someone lets her be responsible for the care and nurturing of small children? Oh my.

Administrator said... Kate's tweet: plagiarism is illegal!





Just curious. I know plagiarism means you are trying to pass of someone's elses words as your own and not giving them credit. Is it still plagiarism when someone is passing off YOUR words and YOUR own? Like, whomever made the fake Facebook page is passing off KATE'S words ( from Twitter ) as KATE's ( on Facebook). Is that still plagiarism? It's not like they are using what she writes on Twitter and making them someone else's words.

Forget about whatever it's called when you make a fake page.....but I don't think copying and pasting her Twitter words onto FB (under the name Kate Gosselin) is plagarism. She still gets credit for saying it.


Why does it upset her so badly that there are fake FB pages of her out there? Every single celebrity has fake FB pages pretending to be them. Do you hear them stomping and complaining and demanding they be taken down? No. It just goes with the territory.



She's such a phucking control freak and imbecile. Grow up already you stupid airbag.

Anonymous said...

Thanks Administrator for that timely comment and article. When Kate gets wind of this, will she hop on board with her 'TLC has done me wrong song", after her contract expires, of course. When she realizes her entertainment value is nil, she might see herself as the spokesperson for changes in the Reality TV industry (for a price of course).

AuntieAnn said...

That "360-degree deal" thing sounds like shaking hands with the devil (whom I'm sure Kate would gush all over and ask if he was single).

TLC may say they're finished with Kate+8, but I wouldn't be at all surprised that if something horrible were to happen to that family like it did to the Armstrongs, they'd be willing to continue filming them as long as it was worthy of ratings, and that Kate would be fully 'in agreeance'.

Now having said that, regarding Kate driving the RV, maybe they put a fitting end to the show by having her drive into the sunset, never to be seen or heard of again.

Shutup. A person can dream can't they?

Laurie said...

I do believe that if we're giving the twit credit for her twitiodic tweets it's not plagiarism - it's giving credit where credit is due to show just what a twitiodit she really is and her latest tweet about plagiarism proves it. She is always good for a laugh! Plagiarism my dear Kate is as others have mentioned, when you take recipes and try to pass them off as your own.

Just curious said...

Was this what she was doing in NY on Sat?

Hmmm.. very well put! How can it be plagiarism if someone is taking Kart's public words and saying "Look what Kart said." Republishing her words verbatim in a different forum isnt plagiarism.

She's just pissed coz she doesnt have control of it. It's all about "I'm in charge and that will never change." AND she's so stupid she thinks someone is making money by re-posting her tweets.

Has anyone officially asked TLC where "Twisting Kate" is?

Tucker's Mom said...

Consider the source and move on. OMG, I hear the sirens already. The Popo are coming to arrest me!
I'm scared!

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

Ok, I get that impersonating someone online is not ok, but if you are pretending to be someone and publishing things they say which means they're being attributed to the person who originally said them, how is that plagiarism?

And I'm willing to bet Kate's iPhone corrected plagiarism to the right spelling!

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

It's not a matter of reprinting tweets as it is setting up a facebook page in another person's name, passing yourself off as that person. As far as I know, there is a federal law against that.

That said, I didn't see anything on that page where the person said that she was Kate Gosselin or that it was an official Kate Gosselin page. I would imagine it's a gray area as far as the law goes on this one. There are several Kate Gosselin FB pages, so I'm wondering why everyone is getting so worked up over this one. Some of those pages state that it is a FAN PAGE, not owned by Kate Gosselin. This one, however, does not.

kate's scary said...

There are also fake FB pages of the kids too, but I don't see Kate flipping out about those. Why not?

Just Me said...

I just went and looked at the only Kate Gosselin page that I could find on facebook (well that was for "our" Kate. There is some other poor unfortunate soul with the name Kate Gosselin apparently out there. Her life must be a living hell now)

Anyway, it says right on the page that it's a fan page and not run by Kate. I looked through the first few pages and all the posts by the person running it were nothing bad. In fact, they actually made it look like Kate is an actual human being that cares about others.

She should be happy to have that person doing some PR for her because they do a better job than she does for herself in that regard.

They were clearly deleting any kind of negative posts and I saw one post that said (paraphrasing) haters need not post here.

I'm still LMAO that she couldn't just go to facebook herself and follow their very simple rules for reporting a problem. She had to run to others to fix her problems. What is she going to do when TLC isn't there to do everything for her? What adult can't handle their own business when it's something so simple?

The plagiarism thing is to hysterical to even address. I would suggest she invest in a dictionary at the very least though. I guess she probably only learned that word from her cookbook publisher and doesn't really understand the full meaning or something ;)

Has Kate whined and complained about packing lunches and getting the kids off to school? She doesn't have to pack ANY lunches this year. All of kids are now allowed to buy their lunches in the dining commons, where there are healthy choices - soup, salad, yogurt, fruit - meal plans are very affordable. After all, she can dip into their trust account for those expenses. It doesn't have to come out of HER tanning or spa money!

This is too funny! Quick, contact the Facebook academic advisory board! This needs to be investigated immediately with a severe punishment of being "unliked".

Uh oh...many of us have been committing plagiarism by copying and pasting her tweets! Will admin represent us if we are charged with the crime?! LOL...Kate you can take all the credit for that ridiculous tweet; there's no way I'd want to claim it as my own.

Is this another new career she's working on? Kate, the lame [twitter] comedian.

All joking aside, I too would feel concerned, if not a little violated, if someone was impersonating me for malicious reasons. It's actually a misdemeanor crime in CA.

Facebook's company is located in California, so I wonder if this law also applies to registered users out-of-state.

Oh I see that now. I didn't see the "view more links" thing because the one that showed up down there looked like it was something different. It said "shared links" and looked like it was from wikipedida based on the text blurb that was showing.

I see there are a bunch of them when you click the view more link though.

So which one is she upset about just now then? lol

As for the Gosselins' RV trip episodes...

During the Roloffs' RV trip, I vaguely recall a clip where a couple of the Roloff kids made a fuss about connecting the RV sewer hose to empty out the bathroom waste.

It won't surprise me if producers filmed this as one of Kate's dramatic shrill moments. Another "challenging" thing Kate had to overcome on this road trip.

Hell to the no, Kate won't let them decide for themselves what to eat. For Pete's sake, she has to control the ORDER in which they eat. Whose mother did that?
My mom made great lunches, but I was never asked if I ate my Devil Dog before my liverwurst sandwich.

mama mia said...

I am still waiting for Kate's explanation on why she dropped the Christian act and deliberately went out of her way to avoid all things Christian. No more bible verses, no more prayers, no more church, no more church speaking engagements. Was it all an act, Kate? And what kinds of letters did Kate get once she shed the sweat pants and suited up in the gladiator hooker heels and shorty shorts? How come she has never mentioned the fact her new man must be into the Lord as much as she is? Oh Kate, when you fake stuff for the tv it always bites you in the ass.

They just don't seem to understand that her contract expiring has nothing to do with books being allowed to be published. It's all about the confidentiality agreements, how they are written, who was required to sign them, and for what length of time!

One of these days instead of just paying a fine she's going end up doing some court-ordered Community Service like cleaning up those ditches she likes to zoom past.

I don't weigh in often, you all do a fine job of expressing our thoughts collectively sometime, but I've been wondering lately why confidentiality agreements are necessary on the realest of reality TV shows. What is there to hide, Kate? That would be the $1m question for her Q&A shows.

Because TLC and Kate don't want you to see how the sausage is made. They want you to get the finished, edited, manipulated product. They don't want you to know how many hours the kids are filmed, how many hours they spend on the couch interviewing, how many hours they spend in photo shoots under hot lights, how many miles they've logged in their little lives etc., etc.

Ok, I see the other two now. Thanks. The one in 2009 was not obeying a traffic control device. Wonder what that means -- running red light or stop sign?

Hope she'd not driving like that when she's got the kids in the car.

Kit said...

One of the dockets described the offense: "obedience to traffic control devices".

In other words, besides speeding, she also runs lights. Careful out there!

____________________________________________


My only speeding ticket ever was in 2001. I was doing 55 in a 45. Because of my clean record, the nice officer wrote it up as "not obeying a traffic control device" which was still a kind of hefty fine but was no points on my license as is a speeding charge. In PA after so many points a year your license is suspended. So... while Kate could have run a red light etc. she still could have been speeding as well and the officer cut her a break.

Questions - the docket shows that the offense date was 8/9/2011 and the disposition date was 8/17/2011. I thought it was 2006 too, until I read the whole thing. I'm not sure what that number ending in 06 is. Docket number, perhaps? Admin? Kate must have been fleeing those (nonexistent) paps. I hope to God the kids weren't with her at the time. Another great ethics lesson for them. Don't worry about endangering the lives of everyone else on the freeway. Go as fast as you want. You're a famous Gosselin. "No" never means "no".

Re Hannah and the FB page -- I can just hear the catcalls following her down the hall in Junior High and High School "Hannah pooped in Hannah's underwears!" And you just know that there will be some kids mean enough to do it. She'll never be able to live that down.

I don't weigh in often, you all do a fine job of expressing our thoughts collectively sometime, but I've been wondering lately why confidentiality agreements are necessary on the realest of reality TV shows. What is there to hide, Kate? That would be the $1m question for her Q&A shows.

It wouldn't be limited to production and TLC. Confidentiality agreements would also be signed by domestic help, nannies, sitters, her manicurist, stylist, and anyone else who might decide to profit off their relationship with her and disclose what a nightmare she is to work with.

Robin said...

I am certainly no expert on the subject, but when I first saw Kate's tweet I wondered "IS plagiarism illegal?" and it appears that it's not, in and of itself.

From Yahoo Answers: "Generally, although plagiarism is often loosely referred to as theft or stealing, it has not been set as a criminal matter in the courts.[6] Likewise, plagiarism has no standing as a criminal offense in the common law. Instead, claims of plagiarism are a civil law matter, which an aggrieved person can resolve by launching a lawsuit. Acts that may constitute plagiarism are in some instances treated as copyright infringement, unfair competition, or a violation of the doctrine of moral rights. The increased availability of intellectual property due to a rise in technology has furthered the debate as to whether copyright offenses are criminal."

....and since I don't think tweets are copywrited or intellectual property ::snort::, unless she can prove unfair competition or a "violation of the doctrine of moral rights" ::snort again::, plagiarism when it comes to this situation is not in any way illegal.

Isn't that a shame? Yes there will be kids who will be that cruel, and they'll have a lot of material to chose from considering the number of Youtube videos, etc. out there.

The fans never even think about that.

Laurie said...

In AZ 25 miles over the speed limit in a non residential area is reckless driving (felony speeding) and you can be arrested on the spot. 15-20 over the limit in a residential area is considered reckless driving. Kate had better get the led out as she's coming close.

Audible Click said...

When Kate was first posting on Twitter she put a picture up of a spelling list taped to her steering wheel! She was quizzing the kids on spelling words while driving! The Twitter uproar was something to behold as the sheeple tried to defend her. Kate was dumb enough to actually tweet that she was reading the words at the same time she was driving;the sheeple didn't have a leg to stand on. I pity those of you who have to drive the same roads that she does. She's a irresponsible waste of space.

Well, well, well Katie I. Gosselin.... lookeee here! Doing 88 mph in a 65 is illegal as well.
Sorry to break it to you.... but being a z-list celebrity from a canceled reality show will NOT get you off the hook for vehicular manslaughter.

Exactly Wayward. Wonder why she didn't tweet THAT little gem to her faithful tweeple.

One of these days instead of just paying a fine she's going end up doing some court-ordered Community Service like cleaning up those ditches she likes to zoom past.

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

Looks like this citation is a recent one.

The docket sheet states that it was filed on the 9th of August, 2011 and was completed on the 17th of August, 2011- with a guilty plea.

Just another example of Kate's complete disregard for rules and the law. That mutha-***** is going to kill someone one of these days with her speeding.

In case you are curious said...

Kate did not pick up the kids from school today. Someone else drove the van to pick them up.

If she says she ran from the bus stop I have a feeling the nanny/babysitter/whatever dropped Kate off at some point on the way home and she ran from there.

_______________________________________________

Okay... breathing a little easier now.. but not much. Here's what I found:

Kate got three speeding tickets in less than 4 months.

11/0/09 70mph in a 55

2/21/10 73mph in a 55

five days later! 2/26/10 73 mph in a 55

Those violations added up to 11 points on her license. After you accumulate 11 points in one year, your license is supposed to be suspended 5 days for each point. So at some point in 2010, Kate's license should have been suspended for 55 days.

Aside from the October 2010 traffic stop in which she received no points, she has had no other points adding traffic stops (that we know of anyway) in over a year. When you go a whole year with no new points, you get 3 points taken off per violation-free year. So Kate's point tally should have been at 8 when she was pulled over a few weks ago for going 88 mph in a 65. This is a 4 point violation. So now Katie is back up to 12 points. Will her license be suspended like any regular PA shlub? Was it suspended before? I remember not-a-nannies and Jon doing alot of the bus pick ups last year... who knows?

Questions said...

Wayward, great research. I didn't know I could dislike Kate any more than I did. I was wrong. Three speeding tickets in 4 months. She really does think the laws shouldn't include her.

Why should she care? It's not her money in the first place, and if the state takes her license away, she'll just keep driving. She doesn't obey laws that inconvenience her.

Besides, it's not HER problem if TLC isn't providing a driver/bodyguard anymore. Suck it up, state of PA.

Folks, this woman is a NARCISSIST. Laws (legal/ethical/common decency) don't apply to her.

____________________________________________

Thank you Questions! I forgot to add that Kate's latest ticket should be her second license suspension which is 10 days per point which should be an 80 day suspension. Unless she's getting some special favors/treatment.

Questions said...

Isn't there any way to find out if her license has been suspended or will be?

Dallas Lady said...

Kate is just DUMB. If she's so concerned about that Facebook page, she should GO to Facebook, find the page (just takes a simple search), and click on the link to report the profile. She'll get a drop-down box with the option to say this is someone impersonating her or something to that effect. It'll still take Facebook a while to get around to it, but that's the only way to get it gone.

Dumb.

And holy **** with those speeding tickets!!! In Texas, she'd be charged with felony speeding. Does she even understand why we have speed limits? Safety??? I HATE speeders and others who drive so recklessly they endanger the lives of those around them. She doesn't need to drive until she can learn to drive safely.

NJGal51 said...

If you go to traffice school you get the points for the one ticket removed, however, you can only go to traffic school once every year (or two years?) and it costs a small fortune in some states. If her license is suspended she could get special dispensation to drive the kids to the bus stop by pleading hardship or some such non-sense. When I got a speeding ticket (6 miles over) I didn't get any special consideration and my son's on the job! I went to traffic school and got no points.

Gosselin Gossip said...

Here is sneak-peak of the RV trip in this TLC clip called "Kate Runs Away":

http://www.monstersandcritics.com/smallscreen/news/article_1659827.php/Kate-Gosselin-tries-to-cross-country-camp-on-TLC-VIDEO

Jamie jokes that she went to Target or Ann Taylor, but Ashley states Kate is really out grocery shopping for organic food. Jamie and Ashley also share what's been going on so far on this trip. Ashley says this trip is more stressful because there isn't much room to get away from each other, which Jamie agrees. Tempers and arguments have occurred "specifically with the adults" but also among the kids. Eight more days left of the trip Ashley says as Jamie adds, "Eight more days? Geez," under her breath. A producer asks if they think they'll make it to which Jamie responds, "As long as she [Kate] stays in the boring bus, I think we'll make it," as Ashley interjects, "And the kids behave."

While Jamie and Ashley are talking with the producer, the kids are being filmed gathering wood and materials as they build the campfire.

If Jon got one speeding ticket the sheeple would go ape shit crazy and accuse him of endangering his kids. Of course with Kate they will just accept this along with the rest of her lies and contradictions.
Kate tweeted that Perez Hilton was lying and using her for publicity when he said the show was not in the fall line up and that spelled cancellation. He also said Kate would be fine financially as she had made enough to pay her debts, put the kids through college and not have to work for a few years. I believe him.

I think the fact that Kate doesn't respond to some of the more creepy fans, such as the ones obsessed with her kids who talk about getting their fill of them (creep-alicious!!!) is an indication Kate DOES know fans are getting their jollies off these kids and that it's wrong and creepy and sick.....but would she ever, ever admit that she's potentially exposed these kids to every creep out there? Over her tanned dead body.

Administrator said...

The latest preview now makes it seem like maybe Ashley and Jamie are banded together against Kate, with Ashley's comment as long as Kate stays in her bus they'll be okay.

In any case, how incredibly sick and manipulative to use the departure of a nanny and the children's devastation for ratings, and even worse to manipulate the previews left and right for maximum drama possible.

Oddly enough it was Kate herself who kind of nipped that manipulation in the bud, even though I think it was intentionally, by spoiling it all and saying they've all made up now.

PA 2 said...

Two other comments about her speeding tickets. In Pennsylvania when you receive over 3 (?) points your car insurance increases. It continues to increase with each violation. If I'm not mistaken, it now also effects your credit rating.

Perhaps. Or, just as likely, she does not respond to the fans who want something from her. The ones who want to meet; the ones who want special tweets; the ones who think they can become her friend. Sadly, I don't think fans' interest in her children are enough to get them ignored - even K8 knows without them, she would not have gotten anywhere at all and, after all, she sees nothing wrong in selling them.

What's that about? Why would she need support? It's cancelled. Does she maybe think if ratings are good enough, TLC will change their minds? If so, that's just delusional.

In another tweet, she says she dresses them all alike because it's easy. They're 7 and almost 11. How hard is it to LET THEM choose their clothing? They aren't babies.

And she blames the adult temper tantrums on hormones. What a putz she is.

Was reading the twitterfest....Kate explained she was going to be late becasue she had to exchange some school shoes so start without her. Almost home she tweets, thoughts so far....and she continues to tweet about once a minute. If she's almost home and able to tweet....who is driving????? I thought she didn't have any help and if she's twitting and driving that's an accident waiting to happen especially if she is having a lead foot moment.

I don't believe that she went out anywhere. Why wouldn't she go right after school? Why would she wait until 8 or 8:30? I can't believe the twits fall for her nonsense.

She complains about having her photo taken...um, for real?!? This woman is clearly insane and is in desperate need of counseling, likely for the remainder of her life!

I feel so bad for those kids! May she rot in hell!

Chaz Bono is a transgendered male, and, as such, wouldn't be dancing as a woman, and wouldn't be partnered with a male dancer.

I don't know why being partnered with Chaz would be getting the "short straw". He might be quite a good dancer. Surely no worse than being matched with Nancy Grace! And isn't ANYONE better than K8? Talk about "short straws".

Reading Kate's tweets, I'm under the impression this is her first time watching this episode. Hopefully, her kids aren't watching along with her based on what others are tweeting her.

It also seems from her fans' tweets that this episode showed an ugly side of Kate. Yet, her fans are blaming TLC for editing her that way. Making excuses for her behavior and attitude.

Kate needs to accept the blame for giving TLC the footage they had to create this ugly side of her. If she didn't act that way, TLC wouldn't have any footage.

JudyK said...

When Kate dragged that yellow vacuum out of the RV and dragged it along the rocks possibly damaging it, the first thing I thought was, that must be someone else's vacuum because clearly she doesn't give a shit about it. Well, she just twatted that it came with the RV. What a surprise. She is a disgusting, miserable control freak. She would really check her blood pressure. Her behaviour on this episode was the REAL Kate Gosselin. I have to say I was somewhat shocked to see this side of her actually caught on film.

JudyK said...

I'm so proud of TLC tonight--I don't think anything was edited out. For the FIRST time, it was reality t.v. for this show. As far as the servant remark, I didn't think anyone called the people who help them run their households servants anymore...assistants or nannies but not servants. It was extremely offensive to me.

Administrator said...

The whole "it's the editing" cry from even Kate herself is such baloney! If you're always kind and patient and composed, there will be nothing to edit. You have to give them the bitchy footage first before they edit you as "the bitch."

A church member was on Survivor a few seasons ago. He is a Christian and decided going in he wasn't going to do anything he thought inconsistent with his faith. That meant no backstabbing, talking about people, etc. Remarkably he actually made it I think to the top five or six! But......you wouldn't even know he was on the show! He was rarely in any footage, he probably got 20 seconds of screen time and often NO INTERVIEW each episode. Since we all knew him we were all kind of frustrated, where's our buddy??? LOL. In fact it was a joke on some of the forums, the guy who is on the show but isn't.

But then I realized? He wasn't giving them anything to edit. They can't edit you as the bad guy if you give them NOTHING.

Dallas Lady said...

She did take a bit of a beating on twitter tonight, though. Not all of her fans were willing to excuse her behavior. Some were saying she needs to relax, have fun, one called her out for calling her kids "disgusting pigs."

She actually lost some fans tonight with that episode. For the most die-hard fans, she could drown puppies and kick nuns on live TV and they'd find a way to excuse it, but a lot of people are finally growing weary of her assholery.

I meant to say she should really check her blood pressure. It has to be sky high.

About-Face said...

I was reading tonight's comments on TLC Kate Plus Eight FB, and fans are turning on her, and not many of them are blaming TLC.

Administrator said...

Who knew it would take Kate calling her kids "disgusting pigs" before the fans would finally turn on her.

Seriously years and years of this crazy psycho and that's what does it???

Was it that bad? Haven't watched it yet! Sounds like this was another Alaska-gate. That was the last time we lost a bunch of fans.

Administrator said...

Servants is offensive, but hey at least she wasn't calling them those slaves out there in the slave quarters. You know she's thinking that in her head.

And the kids have worked 10 times harder than anyone ever did to deserve the "gold" platter treatment for years to come. Shut up, Kate.

a fan asked kate:
@Kateplusmy8 if the ratings for the last shows skyrocketed would TLC renew the show? /:

Kate replied:
possibly?! Not sure. Not my decision...

Lordy be, she sure encourages the sheeple to be as delusional as she is, self-serving biotch. Canceled is canceled, you can't RENEW a show that has been CANCELED. People will tune in to see the last moments of a 6? year/season trainwreck, but no one wants to see her on their TV's week after week or even in specials.

Move on Katie Irene and take your sheeple with you.

Absolute malarkey! If they have any sickness issues it's probably just normal travel sickness, this happens all the time and has zero to do with organic and everything to do with eating foods from different sources and different parts of the country and foods you are not used to.

Administrator said...

Or, maybe she thought Katie Holmes was playing herself and was wondering why she was cheating on Tom Cruise with "FDR."

Administrator said...

What???? Ashley was with them the entire time in Australia!!!

Way to sell Ashley short!!!

A Mother's Love said...

I watched the show tonight. I have not seen any episodes since the wedding renewal ceremony. Does she always treat her children like she considers them to be nothing more than a nuisance? Is there ever any kindness shown to them, or soft, gentle words spoken to any one of them? This is a MOTHER?

The whining in preparation for the trip left me with my mouth hanging open. She's really an unhappy person when she's with her family or does anything for them, isn't she?

And she's a role model for the teen sheeple, who want to grow up to be a mother just like her. It's beyond pathetic.

Administrator said...

Actually very rarely, a few shows get renewed after being canceled. But I would say less than 1% of shows that have ever been canceled have been renewed. I highly doubt Kate will be that 1%. Also, shows renewed are often crappier anyway.

Administrator said...

Chaz might be pretty good, with talented parents in the genes plus I think he's a pretty hard worker. Most of the time if you're willing to bust your butt you will be at least okay.

I think Nancy Grace will be the real nightmare here, not Chaz. I don't think Kate has anything on her. As for the rest of them, I don't think I even know who most of them are.

Teresa said...

Oh Boy! Glad l didn't watch. She really called her kids "disgusting pigs"? OMG. I never thought l would be shocked by anything this piece of shit says, but now, l truly am GOBSMACKED! God save the children and God save Shoka PLEASE!

TLC ship is sinking said...

This was already discussed about previously; however, in light of tonight's episode (which I didn't watch) and what some fans are saying about TLC editing her badly:

Let's remind the fans what Kate recently said about "producing" her show on.

On 8.8.2011:
“I’m really good at producing our show because I know our lives. I know how to convey us for real,” Gosselin tells me. “I know when things translate into TV and what’s not quite as accurate as you want it to be. I’m good at it 'cause I live this life.”

...Kate admits she’s been very hands-on with her own show from the beginning, often coming up with ideas and giving producers a yay or nay when it comes to certain production decisions.

“I have always been very true to who we are,” Gosselin tells me. “In that regard I have always helped produce. Now in recent seasons it’s easier because I can see it from my life as well as seeing how episodes come together from their [producers] perspective.”


http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/08/08/kate-gosselin-producer-new-shows-interview_n_921092.html

Fans can blame TLC all they want, yet Kate clearly states in that recent interview that she knows how to convey herself so that it's true to her authentic self. Tonight's Kate isn't some manufactured, manipulated persona TLC just created out of the blue. This is authentic Kate.

People seeking a reality show, this is a great example of why you should get as much control of your show whenever possible. As a credited producer, YOU have control of how YOU are portrayed on tv.

Correction: Let's remind the fans what Kate recently said about "producing" her own show.

Thanks for pointing that out Administrator. I couldn't think of any examples. I really think TLC is done/knows people are sick of her exploitation of the children/know any improvement in the ratings would be a fluke/unsustainable. Ergo, they're done.

In fact, I see a big party scheduled for 02/13/12 at TLC. Without Kate.

Phoenix Rising said...

"Canceled is canceled, you can't RENEW a show that has been CANCELED."

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


Perhaps "renew" isn't an applicable word. However, never underestimate the power of the network. They can bring back any show after its been canceled. They hold the purse strings.

Wasn't the Choppers show resurrected?

What an idiot said...

Warmth Of The Sun said...

Administrator said...

And I suppose she loved the miniseries with Katie Holmes as Jackie O. about "FDR."

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

I believe she thought that Katie Holmes was Eleanor!

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

Wait a minute! Does that actress have Katie Irene's permission to use her name????

I do believe that's "plagiarism"! Time to Tweet TLC and get that Holmes woman wiped off the face of the earth. Or the Internet. Or wherever.

Traffic violations? Hmmmm - I'll bet she considers a red light as merely a suggestion.

She probably thinks the 10 Commandments are 10 Suggestions too. I think she's broken every single one of them.

@lisalu0610 omg so sorry! Wow! I try my hardest and surely didn't meant to overlook you! Xoxo 12 minutes ago

A bit of sarcasm here, or are her hormones acting up again?

Ruth Burks said...

This show tonight was just stunning and sickening! i am so glad that TLC really showed Kate as she really is..When she was packing for the trip she told a male voice in the background to do something if they needed and she said "Hon".. it was Boobieboy's voice that she was responding to. She wasn't irritated in the least when she said that. Anyone else catch it?

Laurie said...

I agree with Phoenix Rising, after all they broght JR back from the dead St. Elsewhere was all the imagination of an Autistic kid....

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

Had a marathon phone convo with my cousin tonight, NOT that I'd have watched Kate. Haven't watched in eons.

I see there have been over 1600 fan tweets since I last looked at around 5 pm! Seems like a lot then I reminded myself, Kate needed viewers in the millions, 1600 is nothing.

Just a comment about Chaz. I really like him. Saw the documentary he made a few months back. I hope he does well and hope he's lost some weight. I think he's pretty good looking too. I might watch DWTS to watch him, something I never do.

To read or not to read all the tweets, that is the question, whether 'tis nobler to crack open a beer......

If Moses hadn't broken the two tablets, Kate certainly would have thrown them to the ground, swearing that they didn't apply to her!

Laurie said...

Nancy Grace and Kate are two peas in a pod and I think both have NPD...Nancy was a Jon basher from the begining.

fidosmommy said...

NPD stands for "No Personal Discretion", doesn't it? ;-)

wondering said...

I would guess that any new contract offers that involves the children working, whether from TLC or any other entity, would require BOTH parents signature.

Mel said...

Hmmmm....Kate's license suspended?

Would that explain why we weren't treated to pap photos of HER dropping the kids off at the school bus?

Have we seen any photos of her driving lately? Or parking in fire lanes?

Mel said...

You remembr how she tweeted that they were in "tiny rv's"?

Those are the biggest they come that are legal on all roads. They're 30 feet rigs.

And she had TWO of them!

Granted, probably was pretty crowded with 7 people in each, plus the camera crew.

Laurie said...

OK everyone the whole Chaz Bono with Tony or pro thing may have been in poor taste but IT.WAS.A.JOKE.. which is why I ended it with the clasic Seinfeld "not that there's anything worng with that".

Mel said...

Don't you have to have a special license to drive those? A Class B or something?

No way in hell did she make that sharp turn down into that narrow camp ground driveway.

fidosmommy said...

not sure! This really perplexed me! I've known and loved ashley for a LONG time! Not sure what the real issue was?!?

Mel said...

Pretty funny....I was watching the beginning of it when hubby came in.

He says, "Hey! Isn't that that lady who was so mean to Sarah Palin's dad? He seemed like such a nice guy. What's with that lady anyway?"

Uh....how to explain....

Dallas Lady said...

Awww, Kate Can't Do Sh*t and Bearswife, thanks so much! Hey, if you're ever in Dallas.....

I just saw a tweet from Kate that made my jaw drop. Someone asked Kate if Ashley and Jamie ever apologized to her. She answered:

"I apologized to them....But...."

In other words, she's saying they didn't apologize to her. And she's telling it to twitter! BUT at the same time, she claims they're all still buddy buddy?

Bullshit. Just straight up stinky bullshit. What an ass she is. What a disgusting piece of work.

And one twitterer asks if she'll put out any other books and she says she hopes to and then another person asks the same thing and she answers "yes ma'am!" like it's a done deal. What the heck?

Ug. I think SHE'S the disgusting pig, not her kids. Excuse me, I feel my dinner coming back up.

@PamatIW @iwanainspireu Agreed! what's Kate's followers count now? 40K+? I can't imagine trying to read even a small portion of those tweets

___________________________

40,000+ don't tweet her, dear! Some have never tweeted at all. In fact I just saw someone above said that there were 1600 some tweets during the show and that isn't individual tweets.

The stupidity overwhelms me at times, it really does.

Mel said...

I meant to add that hubby watches only sports and the occasional news program, and is not a Sarah Palin fan.

I was stunned that even he had heard about Kate Gosselin and her attitude!

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

If she understand what she needs to do to not be such a vile person, why can't she do it?? I don't get it.

Remarks DO get to her, all the time. Remember 14-years-old and anything could set you off? A parent who says the wrong thing, a fight with a friend or boyfriend over something stupid. This kind of sensitivity is very normal for this age especially in a young woman. You're finding your personality and figuring out who you care about and who you don't and hormones are ranging making the tiniest slight feel like the Grand Canyon.

But this is NOT normal at 36 or even 21. You outgrow this outlook on the world. It's like Kate never did.

Administrator said...

Way to throw your nanny under the bus, Kate, implying that Ashley didn't apologize??? WTF!!!

God, of the three families I nannied for even if there was ever a disagreement as happens when you nanny for years, none ever, ever would have done that to me. In fact, I just spent all of Sunday with one of them at their vacation home. We keep in touch and adore seeing each other, I'm like a second daughter to them. The very idea of any of these families taking to twitter to say anything about any nanny of theirs sickens me and I know without a shadow of a doubt they would never, ever do that or ever say anything about a former nanny publicly.

I feel so very sorry for Ashley. If she wants to be a nanny she should move to New York or L.A., with her experience working for a celeb family an agency would lap her up just like that. She would be treated as she should.

Friend In Pennsylvania said...

Someone asked about needing a special license to drive an RV.
In PA, you need a Class A or Class B, to drive an RV over 26,000 lb. Were these large RVs?

Permanent Name said...

Admin,

I am eagerly awaiting your recap on this one!!! I don't watch the show and depend on your recaps.

I actually thought for a fleeting moment of finding out when/how I could watch without it adding to the ratings, and then I came to my senses.

I avoid the show not just because of ratings, but because it gave me, quite literally, an upset stomach. To see her treating her kids so badly just tortured my soul.

Did she really call her kids little pigs?

And as for the chatter about her tickets, I have to wonder if she's had her license suspended if she really has that many points. Wouldn't a suspension be public record?

I continue to hope that Jon gets custody.

I admit to getting some childish pleasure to hear how TLC seems to be throwing her under the bus. Hey kart, how's that feel, babe?

This is such a sad, sad story from beginning to end.

Bubbles said...

Kate doesn't understand the difference between organizing and controlling.

She also doesn't understand what apologizing means.

Administrator said...

Forget that Kate totally deserves it, I can't believe how disgusting it is for TLC to be throwing Kate and Ashley under the bus. Apparently they never read TMZ to see a reality star who was repeatedly thrown under the bus on his show COMMITTED SUICIDE.

Just proves those folks over there at TLC are scum.

I hate when "I told you so" moments happen, but I hate it anymore when they happen, and no one changed a darn thing they are doing!

How many people are going to have to commit suicide before shows stop doing this to family let alone kids?

Administrator said...

A suspended license (allegedly!) would at least explain all this obsessive running. She has no wheels!
