A tree house?? My brother & I & some of our friends built our own. It was awesome. He got it one day, then me, & so on. She isn't teaching these kids anything. I know they are too young to build their own, but still, we had the help from our dad & our uncles. Oh, that's right...they don't have uncles. And Kate wouldn't invite Jon over to save her life.

Sounds like a BORING ass show, as usual. Having other people come over & DO other things for you. Will she be screeching & yelling at her children? Um, yes, yes she will.

Has the RV episode aired yet? Why were they promoting it for so long? Will that episode be the LAST one her "fans" are left with??? ha ha!
No mushy send off? No tearful reminiscing?

haha She did say she just did her final interviews, and it was "bittersweet". OF COURSE she will boo hooing and so sad. "It is over just too soon, too soon" sob I know I can't watch that crap. I think the RV is the last show. IDK. But I think I get the "kate's life has changed forever now". Did they know then the show was over? Is that what it is reference to?

No Regrets said...

"Kate discovers her skills as a carpenter"

HA Oh stop it TLC. You do NOT have to pretend any longer.

Hot Fun In The Summertime said...

I'd be interested in hearing from a psychologist - what kind of pressure does this put on these kids, knowing that they are responsible for keeping food on the table? Will they regret being born as multiples, knowing that as children they were never individuals, but their sole purpose in life was promoting their mother to celebrity status BECAUSE their birth as sextuplets was unique?

No Regrets said...

That kid is so excited about starting college. And she tweets back about a 'friend' starting and college is on her mind, in the congratulations. THAT irritates the stuffing outta me when she or anyone does that!! Just say congrats and stop talking about yourself, KATE. As usual, she can NEVER say a thing to someone without turning it around to HER. Sorry had to rant. LOL

No Regrets said...

Ok, I take back she "never" answers without talking about herself. I do see ONE. LOL

Mom In Lancaster County said...

Just found out I am named in a Will where a sum of money comes to me & "each of my children". Anyone have @Kateplusmy8 phone number?

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

Huh? Why? Not another donor for poor, poor Kate? Or does she want to know how to set up a trust? Geez...

Michelle said...

It blows my mind that Kate was actually delusional enough to believe this money train would last for 18 years.

I remember her saying to Tony on DWTS that 90% of her audience hated her. That was pretty much all she had going for her. Were it not for that, she would have gone the way of "Table for Twelve" or "Sextuplets Take New York". Nice, happy families don't make for interesting TV for most people sadly. You need an oddity, like the Duggar breeding machine and unusual lifestyle.

Kate lasted as long as she did because as she stated, most hated her. They tuned in to see how obnoxious she'd be this week. Kate didn't realize, hate fades into apathy. One people become apathetic towards you, you're toast. Her fans should be thanking the "haters" for helping keep Kate on the air as long as they did.

I'm sure the numbers will go up the next few weeks because those who moved on will tune in to see if she's still as bad as they remember. The fans and Kate will think those numbers are proof she's still a viable TV star. They are wrong.

_______________________________________________
Let me translate:

Kate and the kids pretend to work in the yard pretending to prepare for-- baby chicks! Fortunately, Farmer Henry let us borrow some for the show and took them back after filming. Then, Kate will pick up a hammer and pretend to work, complete with predictable and totally annoying screams, shrieks and cackles. Finally, since Kate has it in her contract that any shows filmed at the house must include a renovation, improvement, gift-ish (her words) etc., we had to have a treehouse built. For the only eight kids in Pennsylvania who are not allowed to get dirty. Whatever.

Westcoaster said...

As others have said, oh boy, another episode where people come over and do things for the Gosselins. This explains why poor Kate had such sore arms earlier this summer, what a joke. And here we go again exploting another group of animals, tho I guess with their extensive travels ending, someone should be home to care for the chickens. Perhaps they can train the dog to feed and water the chickens.

I actually read the tweet about college on her mind as perhaps she was thinking of going to school herself, but nah, you're right, the grifting for college educations is about to start coming fast and furious. Perhaps instead of counting 'ums' in the final interviews, someone would like to count the 'poor me's ?

And as far as future tv/mmovie careers for the children, I agree that this has to stop. Her children are just ordinary children, and that is a good thing. They would not even be on tv except for this reality show nonsense. It is so past time to let them just be.

Anonymous said...

She says she was busy doing her final interviews and also a People shoot. Let's hope these were ALL final appearances in connection with the children. She has worked the children enough - time for them to retire to what is left of their short childhood. I'll bet all that talk over the weekend of canning, preserving, etc. was for the benefit of the cameras.

It sounds like a joke. "each of his children" gets money too, thus the more kids the more money. Kate has 8. LOL

The crooked houses aren't good enough? Oh, well, at least the new owners of the house will enjoy the tree house. Unless, of course, Kate figures out a way to take that with them when they move.

TLC stinks said...

I guess the kids start back to school this week ( stand by for Chris Watts pics). It never occurred to me Kate was thinking college for herself. The whole thing about the nurse's license is a farce too. Nope, Kate will be grifting worrying about feeding her 8 children, since Jon is a bum, and paying for their college. Uhh, where's the kids's money? Oh, that's right. They have a house worth less than the mortgage. Oops.

Those poor chicks. I guess Shoka will have them as an appetizer since she can't afford to buy dog food.

Permanent Name said...

Am I confused about timelines? Didn't the big chicken hoopla take place last year?

I remember something about Shoka eating chickens..... is this film footage from last year?

Or is this chickens, part deux?

No Regrets said...

Wait, they are buying baby chicks? I thought I had read in a recent episode she tried hatching eggs? I just remembered that the rooster was killed or maimed in the original episode of the chick house? PLEASE don't tell me she tried to hatch eggs that were NOT fertilized? Please. LOL This is so confusing, since I don't watch the show. SUCH DRAMA I am missing.

Ha I see I am not the only one confused. WHY the new baby chicks IF she has a rooster? Why, why oh why is this not even making sense. LOL

Good catch! It all makes sense now, this random vegetable preparing- a photo op for the People article. Poor Kate.... the unemployed millionairess, blanching and freezing second hand veggies in her new $75,000+ kitchen, preparing for the long, hard winter. Look what TLC has done to me.... boooo hooooooo

Someone oughta put those words to music. :0)

I'm glad the show is over and hopefully those kids will be alright. I don't wish any ill on Kate. God knows she's got enough karma of her own doing to deal with. Good thing she's got an education in nursing cuz oh boy that bite on the ass is going to need a lot of ...um...tlc.

No Regrets said...

Oh goody, we are having "excessive heat alerts" for this week. :(

EXPECTED TEMPERATURES: 108 TO 113 IN LAS VEGAS... LAKE MEAD AND LAUGHLIN 112 TO 117... DEATH VALLEY 116 TO 122... BARSTOW AND TWENTYNINE PALMS 108 TO 112... LAKE HAVASU CITY 112 TO 117 AND KINGMAN 102 TO 106.

Hibernation time inside!

No Regrets said...

Auntie Ann I LOVE your expressions. LOL She WILL need a lot of TLC.

Never fear, People WILL keep us updated and run regular updates when Kate needs a job. LOL

TLC stinks said...

Ah ha! "People" must have been at the house shooting and that does explain the veggie tornado Kate in her high stylin' free kitchen, kind of like a squirrel getting ready for winter. The article will be about Kate making ends meet. Boo hoo. I bet "People" provided the veggies. Free food! You guys are so smart.

Kate's excuse about no longer having the chickens was that Shoka ate them. Not a clue about the chicks, where they came from or why she has them.Not watching. Will wait for recap.

fidosmommy said...

Could it be that Kate is thinking about enrolling in classes to upgrade from an Associate degree to a BSN? It would be a wise move if she intends to return to nursing.

The tweet about a will and an inheritance sounds
like a joke to me. I've been wrong before, but
who in the world would ....... oh yeah.

AuntieAnn said...

No Regrets - Ha! Thanks. You know what's really funny is I've been out of the loop here the last few days because everything in my garden seems to have ripened at once and I've been canning/blanching/freezing like crazy. I haven't had time to even sit down at the computer. I'm wondering if I should seek some advice from Kate on how SHE does it ALL with eight kids to boot, no help and still finds time to twat. I must be doing something wrong.

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

Sounds excruciatingly BORING.

Thank GOD the show was cancelled.

Uh! I hate that Kate- who has everything, expects everyone to have obligation to her & her children's "needs". I don't care that she has 8 kids. That was Jon & Kate's decision.
I'm just so tired of her- I really am.
Boo-hoo she will no longer "make memories" with her kids, boo-hoo! I can't find it in my heart to feel any compassion for a woman who has taken advantage of everything, and everyone, and still has the nerve to complain.

May that wretched woman never be shoved down our throats again. Good riddance to very bad garbage.

I pray to God, that none of her children grow up to be like her. The world does not deserve it.

As for TLC/Discovery- they are still broadcasting a few shows exploiting children, for the sick entertainment of viewers. What are they waiting for? Time for those shows to go as well!

Bring back decent, quality programs, TLC!!!

AND...

My House Is Still Proud To Be-
Kate + 8 Free!!!


Have a great day folks :o)

you put me on the floor laughing!!!!! Thanks for the best chuckle in I don't know how long.

LOL - Excellent!!!!!!!!

roxyhelen said...

You know, the best memories are those unplanned.Also, if a memory is awesome(and the child is old enough to understand what is happening) there is no need for a camera in order for that person to remember it. The whole "filming for memories" is bs. I remember being 4 years old and running on the beach with my cousins, during our yearly beach trip. No pictures, no videos, I had so much fun that it stuck with me all these years. The Q&A episode was scary, the kids talked, not about their favourite trips, not about their favourite memories, not about their favourite places, they talked about their favourite EPISODES.It's beyond disgusting that these kids see their lives in episodes of a tv show.

If no time for the computer, you obviously do need advice from the super-mom, super-organized, super-getting ready for school takes an entire month, super-head nurse who stapled her own son's head wound, super-hair cut for all the kids, while paparazzi hunts you down at the hair place, super duper canning/blanching/freezing whiz of Miss Kate!! BTW Her bounty magically increased from one bushel of tomatoes to two and from 50 green peppers to a bushel as the day churned on. lol

I did post the other morning, I had to go since I don't have 8 kids and cannot stay online all day. :)

I WISH I had some of your veggies. Glad you are now taking a break to join us.

mama mia said...

Between all that recycling, coupon clipping and food freezing do the sheeple ever ask Kate how many hundreds of thousands she makes selling her reality lie story to People, INF, etc? Surely they can figure out she plays a thrifty mom on tv and if a grifty mom in real life?

I remember when I was a fan, I watched the CA forrest (pine cone robbery/defacing a national landmark because they were already entitled) episode, when Kate chastised Jon for acknowledging the crew.
Then of course came the epic meltdown and castration when Jon deigned to refer to their lives in seasons.
Then Kate got blonder, tanner and more svelte and suddenly she was pandering to the camera, flirting even and talking about filming in story arcs.
Now, the kids refer to their lives in episodes.
Ah.... making memories.

Is this pathetic or what? Her avatar shows her, I'm assuming, with two kids.

Do people say stupid stuff like this just to get a tweet from Kate?

Whatever, it's just weird.

No Regrets said...

"making memories on film" because they just had 'no time to film' was the fist reason they did the show. Then it morphed into for "college funds". Sadly, after working 'so hard' all these years, Kate has not accomplished her goal she says, of the college funds. So the show was all for naught. Oh wait a minute, they DID get the memories, The divorce on film, the kids vomiting, using the potty chair, screaming, hitting, meltdowns. Kate being "stressed" emasculating their father, daily, her screaming not to get dirty, the list of memories is so long! Yes, she surely did get those 'memories' for the kids to watch forever.

Roxyhelen - ITA! I remember when Kate got on Jon for referring the "seasons" years back.

She has been forcefeeding the show down their throats since they will little toddlers in their cribs for their naps. No wonder they cannot differentiate their real life from the "realist reality show". Sad sad sad.

Kids find ways to mimimize everything especially since no matter what they still love their parents - and these kids will be working all their days to ever get their birth mother's love and acceptance. Nothing will ever be good enough for a narcissist. And I speak as a child of Bi-Polar NPD mother... she was not seeking fame and fortune but continual acceptance and self-worth from others praising her.

These kids need to be in our prayers/good thoughts daily.

fidosmommy said...

If this vegetable processing was a part of a show (might be, might not be), then it's possible that the producer sent some schmuck to Farmer Henry's to get more because the average gardener would not be impressed with the 50 peppers and bushel of tomatoes. After all, 50 green peppers is something a person can do in just a short time. Get out your Ol' Gramma soup pot, boil water, add 8 peppers, parboil for 3 minutes, remove to ice water, repeat with 8 new peppers. 6 batches X 3 minutes = not long at all. It would barely get the kitchen warm. Ah, but a bushel - well, that will really look like work.

Tomatoes? Stick them in boiling water for a few seconds, remove, skins pop off, put in cooking pot, cook down for sauce or stewed tomatoes. Big deal. One bushel? Done in less than an hour. Two bushels? Looks like such a lot to do. It would look even more impressive if they showed bushel baskets on the countertop and some
produce sitting around near them. Staged looks can be so deceiving.

Then Mady and Cara or the cook can take over when the crew is done filming Kate slaving over a hot stove. Uh huh.

SERIOUSLY???? Kate just called someone out regarding questioning her finances?
Kate? The one who went to Meredith and CRIED on national TV about her purseful of bills?
Kate? The one who poudly proclaimed "MINE all MINE" in the kitchen of her $1.2 mil mini mansion.
Kate? The one who claimed she can't even go to NYC unless TLC foots the bill.
Kate? The one who flaunts her bolt-ons every chance she gets.
Kate? The "you are all just jellus" of my wealth, looks, etc?
Kate? The one who gave back donated baby cribs.
Kate? The one who can't keep her mouth shut in regards to her finances on her own twitter.
Kate? The braggart of the "POOL" and the "LEATHER SOFA". Good Gawd...

That woman (and I use that term loosely) is UN-FRICKEN-BELEIVABLE.

Good ole Kate, constantly talking about her finances then crying foul when others question her lies. That's Kate!

I watched an old Jon & Kate episode on YouTube once (before Kate got really nasty) and she and Jon had taken the twins to American Girl Place in New York. Mady was upset about something, and Jon was explaining how it was hard to calm Mady down, especially when they were being filmed, and Kate says, "I don't think you're supposed to say 'while we're being filmed'".

Uh, why not? Everyone that's watching KNOWS they're being filmed!!

fidosmommy said...

Well, the next logical question is "so, please share what it is we don't know, because you have not made your purchases and your gifts a secret
to this point. Fill us in so we will understand your situation."

Permanent Name said...

I thought she said she didn't read her non-fan twits? Seems she is getting a mite bit ruffled... maybe the commenter hit a little too close to home?

While I might normally agree with her assessment that it isn't polite to discuss finances, I think in this case Falling Like a Brick has a very legitimate point.

kart honey, YOU brought it up.

kart is the one who brings up her wealth ALL the time. Someone said in an earlier thread she is someone who came from nothing and suddenly got wealthy, and just can't help herself from bragging.

She went from "too many kids and not enough money" to "I've got more money that you-ooo". Her twits are designed to provoke discussion.

What other purpose can she have in mind when she mentions her "leather couch" and "swimming pool" and "29 acres"? Perhaps she thinks we should be proud of her making "all that money" on the back of her kids?..........

She made it public business when she exploited her kids, making them "play in front of the camera" and then seemed to spend all the income on herself; when she made all that money and took thousands of dollars of free stuff, all in the name of "filming".

Me, I wouldn't dig into her finances because I am suspicious of all the numbers out there being valid. But I don't think anyone can find fault with posters offering their opinions.

kart seems to have NO IDEA of the number of people she has pissed off. On top of that, she says quite specifically, she does't care.

Falling like a brick, I stand right beside you in your comments {smile}

kart thinks she can have everything her way all the time. She needs a reality check.

LOLOL - get it? "reality check"....... ha ha ha......... ok, maybe that wasn't that funny..... sigh

From STAR magazine:

JON & KATE: THE MOVIE!

The saga of Jon and Kate is going off the air — but it could be coming to the big screen! New Line Cinema is in talks to produce a movie version of the reality TV show turned real-life drama. “Ideally they’d like Cameron Diaz for Kate,” a source tells Star. “And Johnny Depp for Jon.” Here’s who Star thinks should be cast to bring the Gosselin drama to a theater near you!

She's Nuts said...

That woman (and I use that term loosely) is UN-FRICKEN-BELEIVABLE.

_______________________

She's nuts and getting more so by the day. Don't forget that she went on national television crying about her lack of college funding. Were viewers supposed to take her word for it? No! All it did was to start speculation that she hadn't saved money for their tuition, paving the way for figuring out exactly how much money she makes and what she's put aside for the kids. Didn't she also comment, when it was suggested how much she makes per episode, that it's nowhere near that? Or was it how much Jon pays in child support? She commented on something and said it wasn't anywhere near what was reported.

She started it and now she's calling someone out!

She has more than just a couple screws loose up there.

Same here & you're right. She will have to answer to whomever for what she has done to her children & her family all these years. It looks like it's starting to happen actually with the cancelling of the show. I just really hope the kids fare well throughout this whole mess & Kate really does well by THEM, not HER, THEM. They are ALL that should matter now, nothing more.

I would hope Diaz and Depp are not that desperate. I could see a Lifetime movie with some nobodies playing them. Regardless, Jon and Kate will not come out well. Just wait until her contract ends with TLC and those nondisclosure clauses go away.

fidosmommy said...

Ah yes, "The Life and Times of the Gosselin 10...um, 9". Fascinating TV. I wonder if this is what Kate would like to produce. I don't know that she gets any money from being the subject of a movie. If so, there are lots of dead people out there whose estates are owed a bundle. Not to mention the live people out there who had some unauthorized movie of their lives on TV. Think Martha Stewart for one. Or Charles and Diana after their divorce.

Sheesh, if they did pay for that, she'd have to split it with Jon! Oh no!

JudyK said...

Kate, since you don't read to your children, you've never heard this story. I told you in the previous thread it contained a great life lesson for you. Here it is:
************************************
THE BOY WHO CRIED WOLF

There once was a shepherd boy who was bored as he sat on the hillside watching the village sheep. To amuse himself he took a great breath and sang out, "Wolf! Wolf! The Wolf is chasing the sheep!"

The villagers came running up the hill to help the boy drive the wolf away. But when they arrived at the top of the hill, they found no wolf. The boy laughed at the sight of their angry faces.

"Don't cry 'wolf', shepherd boy," said the villagers, "when there's no wolf!" They went grumbling back down the hill.

Later, the boy sang out again, "Wolf! Wolf! The wolf is chasing the sheep!" To his naughty delight, he watched the villagers run up the hill to help him drive the wolf away.

When the villagers saw no wolf they sternly said, "Save your frightened song for when there is really something wrong! Don't cry 'wolf' when there is NO wolf!"

But the boy just grinned and watched them go grumbling down the hill once more.

Later, he saw a REAL wolf prowling about his flock. Alarmed, he leaped to his feet and sang out as loudly as he could, "Wolf! Wolf!"

But the villagers thought he was trying to fool them again, and so they didn't come.

At sunset, everyone wondered why the shepherd boy hadn't returned to the village with their sheep. They went up the hill to find the boy. They found him weeping.

"There really was a wolf here! The flock has scattered! I cried out, "Wolf!" Why didn't you come?"

An old man tried to comfort the boy as they walked back to the village.

"We'll help you look for the lost sheep in the morning," he said, putting his arm around the youth, "Nobody believes a liar...even when he is telling the truth!"

Hot Fun In The Summertime said...

Hippie said...She will have to answer to whomever for what she has done to her children & her family all these years.

We'd like to think so, but I'm not so sure...at least not in this lifetime. She doesn't think she's done anything to them other than giving them experiences that she's never had. In her mind, she's never wrong. Once a narcissist, always a narcissist?

silimom said...

Teresa, that rumor was from back in October 2009, at the height of the divorce drama. It's old news.

http://perezhilton.com/2009-10-29-jon-kate-the-movie

That being said, who wants to start taking bets on how soon Kate writes a tell-all about her divorce from Jon, working with TLC and her struggles as a single mom raising 8, count 'em, EIGHT kids? After all, she's stated on her twitter that the public doesn't even know about half the hell he put her and the kids through.

I give it a year. I have to believe that she has signed some sort of defamation clause that prohibits her from discussing her involvement with TLC until a certain amount of time has elapsed.

What happened to the "new give back Gosselins?" Just a line I suppose to get us hooked into watching the show again. She is still begging/grifting. Sickening!

Kate really missed the boat by not pulling the plug on the show when it was at a high mark two years ago. Maybe it should have ended after the elaborate Hawaii vacation/vow renewal (fake)? I've always heard that a person should always go out on a high note. It's much better than being canned. No doubt it would have tasted better!

Still voting with my remote. I know many, many families who could use free chickens and a tree house. Kate and her 8 are not included.

Anonymous said...

fidosmommy -- It would depend upon Kate's participation (or lack thereof) whether or not she'd be paid for being the subject of a movie. If the production company used one or all of her books for the basis of the movie, they'd have to pay her. Ditto if she were a producer or a consultant. If they just made the movie without her cooperation or input, then I don't think they'd have to pay her. Admin? Is this correct? Similarly, those movies made about dead people - if the movie is based on their autobiography, then their estate or heirs or whomever holds the copyright would be paid. If the movie is based on someone else's book, then no, just the person who wrote the book. If it's an original screenplay based on published reports and interviews with people who knew/know the subject, then no. The movie "Half a Dozen Babies", about the Dilleys, was based on their book, so they would have had to be paid something.

"Thanks for calling the Greedy Hotline! UM, if you wanna donate, CASH ONLY please, the bank account & routing numbers go like this, 8888888888888 & the routing number is the same cuz, uh, I have 8 kids, duh. If you wanna donate clothes, toys, material items & stuff, they MUST match & be BRAND new. Also, I only accept trips that include +1. Got that? I really need a break from the +8. I work so hard to put food on the table for those kids. Also, refer to my bucket list by pressing 1. If you need to hear the amount of my cash only donations, press 2. If you're a single guy & want to describe yourself to me, press 3. If you're a sheeple & want to praise me for a few minutes, press 4 & if you're a TV executive who really really really wants me, press any number. I'll call you back ASAP!!

Grammy of nine said... What happened to the "new give back Gosselins?"

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

Another lie, I guess. "Giving back" which most of us call 'helping out' or 'charity work'. I remember the wording exactly. Her episode at the food bank was "part of a new initiative she was rolling out."

Where did it roll to, Kate?

Helping others with your own TWO hands does not cost you one stolen nickle.

Gimme said...

That would be great if they do the movie and they both as well as the children get compensated adequately as well so Jon can have a place for the kids and maybe not have to have a day job so he can keep the kids while Khate pursues her career in Hollywood or wherever. Oh I figured out what the child was saying when Steven said whatever, he was saying but she'll never come back. Whatever.

fidosmommy said...

A geesh. If the powers in Silver Springs MD thought having Kate rescue circus animals would make good TV, Kate would be tugging that rhino
with a big rope, screeching the entire time. There's an episode. "We just SO wanted to save
the animals from this prison! It's our new family tradition. One species a year!"

The show was a mixture of Where in the World Are the 8 + Sitters and Project of the Week. I bet none of it - memories or project - lasted past bedtime each night. Anybody think Kate powerwashed the exterior of her house this year? Or made that organizational binder? Or used the organizing system that nice lady set up for her? Go to Wyomissing for their annual 4th of July
celebration? I don't think so, myself. All for show.

SERIOUSLY???? Kate just called someone out regarding questioning her finances?
Kate? The one who went to Meredith and CRIED on national TV about her purseful of bills?
Kate? The one who poudly proclaimed "MINE all MINE" in the kitchen of her $1.2 mil mini mansion.
Kate? The one who claimed she can't even go to NYC unless TLC foots the bill.
Kate? The one who flaunts her bolt-ons every chance she gets.
Kate? The "you are all just jellus" of my wealth, looks, etc?
Kate? The one who gave back donated baby cribs.
Kate? The one who can't keep her mouth shut in regards to her finances on her own twitter.
Kate? The braggart of the "POOL" and the "LEATHER SOFA". Good Gawd...

That woman (and I use that term loosely) is UN-FRICKEN-BELEIVABLE.
$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
Well said but let me add a few more:

Kate? The one who said she cannot afford gymnastic lessons for the kids nor can she afford to take them to Hershey Park.
Kate? The one who just a few months ago said she was "struggling" and could not afford to give to charity.
Kate? The one who just last week bemoaned that she was reusing backpacks & lunchboxes and wanted someone to plant her a money tree?

SHE is the one who brings up her finances ALL THE TIME! She has an estimated net worth of $5 million dollars but she's crying poor. This is just one more example of Klassic Kate- she wants it both ways. She wants to cry poor to start the freebie train rolling again, but no one better dare call her out on it.

Audible Click said...

I can see it now, Coco will play Kate (Coco has a really, really "good bra"). Frankly, any movie about the Gosselins would, in my opinion. be a flop and I think Hollywood knows that too.

____________________________________________

Lol..... the "Purseful of Bills" Today Show appearance. According to the Vanity Fair article about her a few years ago, the VF reporter went with Kate and her 'people' back to the hotel after the Today appearance. When they were discussing lunch, that's when Kate infamously said "I want Nobu, I want Nobu!!" like an excited 3 yr. old getting a lollipop at the bank. When one of Kate's 'people' told her Nobu might not be a good idea after her teary-eyed appearance that morning about being broke, she got all pouty. Oh snap. She wanted to play like she was broke but she still wanted to have a $150.00 lunch and as I said above, she still wanted it both ways.

fidosmommy said...

Audible Click, you are absolutely right. What would they show for an hour on the screen? Feeding, changing, burping 6 babies while the older siblings look on. Sending 8 kids to the basement to play. Washing the kitchen floor on hands and knees 3 times a day. Interviewing housekeepers. Driving places with carseats.
Walking places with triple strollers. Dentists.
Haircuts. Crying (kids AND Mommy). Getting on the school bus. Getting off the school bus and running like the wind to Daddy. Trips to zoos and to far away places that the younger kids will likely never remember. The divorce - that they will remember.

Nothing holds these instances together into a movie format. Nothing spectacular went on. No budding author or rock star on the horizon yet. Just normal kids doing their level best to get along in a world they don't quite understand with a Mommy who makes it even more difficult.

Not a movie plot in sight as far as I can reckon. Carmen Diaz and Johnny Depp or not.

If Vanity Fair was footing the bill for lunch, that's just typical Kate grifting for a free, expensive meal at a high-end restaurant like Nobu so she can feast on Chilean seabass to her heart's content. Her care for sustainable fish is probably on par with her care for "going green"...environmentally, that is. She doesn't give a hoot.

She's tweeting to a twit that what she is worth is all made up. Well, even if we lowball her at $25k an episode x 150 plus the church grifting, Dancing with The Stars, books, photo ops, and freebies I think she's worth plenty. Maybe she's not worth the reported $5 mil, but she's worth at least $3 mil. I cannot stand the poor mouthing. Only the sheeple buy the baloney.

Pixie said...

I noticed in a link provided above that Mady says 'OMG' in the Movie Makers episode. If she has limited use of the internet (according the lying liar that lies Kate), how would she know texting language?

I'm wondering if her and Cara do have cell phones.

*shudder* I'd hate to be their mother when all 8 are old enough to surf the 'net without supervision. What a shock they are in for.

Gosselin8ComeFirst said...

Let's face it, with a narcissist like Kate, no amount of money will ever be enough. She has had money rolling in left and right. But if it is not in her liquid account (checking account), she does not have any money. Let us not forget about her 12 or so "other accounts" years ago, which are probably investment or savings accounts. By now, she has probably socked away much more money in investment accounts, and does not consider them money that could be used. We are dealing with a woman who grifted from day one, having sextuplets with no viable means to support them, begged for freebies before the kids were even born, and then proceeded to stockpile money for her own good. Never mind the money Jon's father provided to them.

One a grifter, always a grifter. Once a narcissist, always a narcissist. I guarantee there is money stockpiled away by Kate, but in her own investment accounts. Under the guise, it's all for the kids. She is really a sick selfish narcissist when it comes to admitting all of the money she has made. She accepts gift cards for Starbucks from people who are less fortunate than her! Who does that? Back packs, who knows what else?

Bottom line, if she opens her mouth, she is lying. She is always the poor victim. Disgusting!
Not watching tonight as I refuse to support a poser and support her ego via ratings. She has been using RT on her twitter, and she may be blind CC'ing TLC to show how much people want to see HER and how much SHE will be missed. Yes, show cancelled, but not taking any chance with her! Will read Admin's recap. Good enough for me!

Administrator said...

It's Kate who has the nerve to suggest that it's okay for her to put her entire financial woes out there, the bulk of which have a direct affect on her kids, but not okay for anyone to question it. I would even go so far as to argue her finances are a matter of great public concern, because the majority of the money she has made over the past six years is directly the result of her kids working, and most state legislatures have already made it very clear that parents cannot be trusted with a child's money and that the state must intervene and create guidelines, some states more strict than others.

And if her position today is that she has a lot less money than what "we think" then there's proof right there she has no business managing her kids' money! There is no reason, NONE, that her kids should not be very well off by now. Other than gross negligence by their so-called protector.

Gosselin8ComeFirst said...

Oh, forgot to mention the obvious. Get a job Kate, without your kids. Seriously, who relies on their kids for an income. For years- she was hoping until 18 years old- she is the ultimate leach sucking the life out of her kids. No talent Kate relying on her kids to support her. She really is pathetic, self-absorbed and disgusting.

Administrator said...

Kate has only herself to blame for the criticism.

She could have said NOTHING about finances. Never say you need to support your family, never give interviews about college funds or no college funds or partial college funds. Never cry about Jon's child support or how much it is or isn't. Every single one of these "factoids" came from Kate herself.

Had Kate never said anything about her situation, had she not been so darn TACKY, what could we really say?

I mean, absent Kate's own words, I might actually assume she was doing just fine financially and who am I to suggest she's squandered her children's money or not. I would really have nothing I could prove. I would be a "hater" who is just "speculating."

It's Kate's own big mouth that proved she's such a dolt with her children's money and if folks want to criticize, that's her doing.

“Ideally they’d like Cameron Diaz for Kate,” a source tells Star. “And Johnny Depp for Jon.” Here’s who Star thinks should be cast to bring the Gosselin drama to a theater near you!
----------------------
PUH-Lease! Cameron Diaz & Johnny Depp? 2 of the hottest stars in Hollywood? Um, I'm thinking if the Jon & Kate story EVER makes it to the screen, it will be a made for TV movie starring Meredith Baxter & some random Asian dude off the street. Seriously, nothing like making Kate's head bigger than it already is. This will NEVER happen. BUT, we all know Cameron Diaz can play nasty; has anyone seen 'Bad Teacher'? She was awesomely bad in that one, to children. So, yep, she could totally pull it off. Unfortunately, it would ruin her career. And Johnny Depp? OMG...that is frigin HILARIOUS! I can't stop laughing. Depp, as Jon Gosselin!!! Hahahahahaha!!! Too funny.

But when you're spending money like there's no tomorrow, it goes fast! There's the $100,000 a year school tuition, the mortgage, upkeep on the property, taxes, utilities, food, clothing, etc. etc. I think I once figured that she needs at least $350,000 just for expenses, and that does not include trips, recreation, and other expenses that a family of eight would incur.

Sweet Charity said...

I know from personal experience what happens when a movie is made about a celebrity. I mentioned once that I was close with a major celebrity. A full-length movie was made about the person, with a well-known actor cast in the lead. The actor did physically resemble him, and had his mannerisms, speech, and personality pretty much down to perfection.

However, the movie was a disaster. It was so historically incorrect that it was laughable. It contained so many errors, with numerous distortions of facts. My friend couldn't do a darn thing about it and had no say in its production. It was an embarrassment. He hated the movie. I have several copies of it - it's difficult to find and has become a collector's item. Subsequent movies were made, all documentaries, professionally produced, and were exceptional in narration and accuracy.

Having someone "play" Kate would throw her into hysterics. Can you imagine her trying to control production and wanting to edit the film? What producer would want to take her on?

I've been reading here and reading Kate's show twittering. She made sure to pimp Elysa Suzanne. Having the name Kate meant it was her destiny to have eight children since it rhymed. If she had done the construction in high heels, there would've been a media ruckus. She quotes someone badmouthing Jon then says she's not commenting. That's only a fraction of her twatting.

OMG her tweet about the older two girls reading the book she "wrote" is SUUUUUUCH bullshit it made me laugh out loud for real. She's definitely trying too hard to convince everyone and herself how perfect she is and how perfect her life is.

Did anyone catch a tweeter quoting Kate from the show and Kate saying she didn't realize how awesome her own words were and now she's going to put THAT on the "wipe" board? (IT'S A WHITE BOARD, YOU DAFT COW.) I've never seen anyone more into themselves than her.

And the white board near the "toothbrush sink" probably reads, "IF THERE IS A SINGLE SPECKISH GRANULE OF TOOTHPASTE ANYWHERE, YOU ARE CLEANING IT UP WITH YOUR BARE HANDS." I bet the whole area is covered in taped-down garbage bags.

Wouldn't it be great if the kids got snarky enough to write their own quotes on the "wipe" board?

Stuff like, "It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God."

or, "Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious."

This is such a good one. I love it. It basically captures exactly how I feel about this stupid upside down house she's in. The kids don't need a certain amount of square feet. They need a loving home their parents can afford without constantly being stressed out, and the family will fill it up with things you cannot buy with money. It sounds cheesy, but it's the truth: Laughter and hugs and love and cookies baking and storybooks being read and cuddles on the couch are what make a house a home. Not the square feet.

Teresa said...

If anyone watched this episode can you tell me if you saw Shoka around?

fidosmommy said...

Yes, Admin, I do love Proverbs. One of the reasons I do is that even though it's in the Judeochristian Scripture, it's more common sense
than "religious" thinking, appropriate for just about any person on the planet to read. Work hard, save for a rainy day, don't do stupid things, listen to people who know more than you do. Pretty simple, pretty profound stuff.

Administrator said...

Fido, that's what I like about it too. It's sort of the "life tips" book of the Bible. I like that it's not so heavy handed on praise your Lord bow down to your king. A lot of it is more the day-to-day how do you live a good life.

And amazing how applicable it is today as it was 1,000 years ago. All those things you said, work hard, save for a rainy day, etc etc are just as relevant today.

Hmmm has Kate read this one?

"16 There are six things the LORD hates,
seven that are detestable to him:
17 haughty eyes,
a lying tongue,
hands that shed innocent blood,
18 a heart that devises wicked schemes,
feet that are quick to rush into evil,
19 a false witness who pours out lies
and a person who stirs up conflict in the community."

Uh because I'm pretty sure she hits all seven, lol.

Administrator said...

Meanwhile this site has already sent out our prizes and the winners helped two people in need. Amazing what you can accomplish when you're not Kate. Snark!!

Pixie said...

I must say, Admin. is very articulate. Short, to-the-point posts is a great skill.

How does Kate know for certain those older girls don't have Facebook? Or do any on-line surfing? She could have put parental controls on their personal computers, but what about at school or with their friends? True, they are never really ever out of the orphanage for long but still. Pre-teens and teens will find a way.
This is the age of the internet, after all.

I forget who asked it, but I think Kate said 'aviator flu.' That's what I heard, but I have been wrong a time or two. None of us can hear her properly anyway,according to her Grace.

hey jude said...

Does anyone remember when they were looking around the new house.Kate said that the bedrooms were small for the kids, but it didn't matter because they would be spending most of their time in the bigger,open family/common rooms.

Another big, fat lie- they are probably afraid to come out if she's home!

Here's what I wanna know. Did anyone tune into her bs tonight? Not me. O forgot it was on. She may have 8 kids. But I have 2 kids. Count em. 2 kids.. I was too busy with my family. My kids are almost grown. I can sit back and know they won't toss me in into a $10 nursing home... Haha. Karma is a bitch. How funny would it be if Kate was video taped taking a dump in a nursing home.. Why not? After all, it's all about memories.

marilyn said...

TERESA, no Shoka was not here. I only saw him on some picture of khate jogging, probably to the gate to yell at Jon. So he was present some time ago, but not on tonight's episode which was the treehouse one followed by the DC Cupcakes one where Ashley was playing with the kids outside. No sign of the dog whatsoever.

He could have been running around while they were building the tree house, or running with the kids, what the harm?
My only hope and prayer is that he was not locked up somewhere. That poor poor dog. If anyone can go on twitter and find out, l would be so grateful. I don't have the first clue about twiter.

Another Narcissistic trait is to "try" and sound intelligent, worldly, educated. All the while, throughout their whole lives, the person NEVER makes an effort to LEARN ANYTHING. Hence AVIATION flu! (she is soooo NOT a nurse!)
This Twitter thing is the perfect outlet for her. It's replaced the couch. She can continue to blabber on and on incessantly, clicking into that damn phone the absolute OPPOSITE of what is going on around her, the opposite of how she thinks or sees things. The OPPOSITE of how she treats her kids, family, neighbors, or ANYONE!

Vanessa said...

Oh, and I think they are RE-editing the "last" episode. The RV episode was supposed to air before the cancellation announcement, now it's the LAST one? They'll probably leave in the "drama", but will try and give it a "cliffhanger" ending. (barf!)She just wrapped up the last of her couch confessionals???
We'll see if there's some inuendo about some "other" project.
I hope they edit it just like her "toughest questions" episdode!

Let's face it, with a narcissist like Kate, no amount of money will ever be enough. She is really a sick selfish narcissist when it comes to admitting all of the money she has made.

*******************************************************************
You could not be more dead on. Narcissists never have enough money, attention, accolades. She will use whoever she can to get what her greedy hands want and as she's shown over and over for the past 6 years, that includes her family and friends and her own children. It's never enough for a narcissist. They always want more, more, more.

And when it all falls apart (as it is right now), she will blame and point fingers and play the victim. She will never take time to examine her own heart and actions. This is all classic behavior of someone with narcissistic personality disorder. Kate has NEVER owned up to anything that she's done wrong or any behavior selfish and rude behavior she's exhibited. She may appear to apologize, but it's always followed by a "but you/they ____(fill in the blank)_____" - it always comes back to the other person and how they didn't do this or that. It's never a narcissists fault. And this is why you will see that most narcissists have very few close friends and family in their lives. They cut them all out when they fail to feed their narcissism any longer and they move on to the next victim.....leaving a trail of hurt and pain in their wake. And then to add insult to injury, they pin the blame on the person they themselves hurt. It's a cycle you will see with Kate. New people come into her life and then after a while, they disappear. The only reason Steve has been around as long as he has is because he's being paid. I don't think her 'friend' Jamie is an 'old friend' either and she will not be around forever. She will eventually be discarded.

I can't say this enough.....narcissists see people as objects/tools to get them what they want. They do not see other people as human beings. This includes their children. Kate does not view her children as people with feelings and needs. She sees them as her props/tools to get money and fame. She will eventually discard them as well. There will be very few (if any) of her kids that will have a regular, meaningful relationship with her as adults.

Warmth Of The Sun said...

Haha Kate still hasn't mailed out her contest prizes. Soon she claims! What dies she DO all day???

+++++

I'm wondering if the reason she hasn't done this is because the legality of this contest was questioned. If she sends the prizes and the winners receive them, it will be confirmed that she sought out the names and addresses of minors and that she is in possession of those names and addresses. It will, in fact, prove that she put together the contest and that prizes were awarded.

If she doesn't send the prizes and internet postings promoting the contest are shown, it's confirmation that she ran a contest promising prizes and didn't deliver - a scam. Either way, she might be in hot water. Maybe she's consulting her attorney to find out exactly what her liability is in all of this!

Bubbles said...

I'm just hoping that this cancellation is real and not some TLC trick to drum up interest via controversy and sympathy. I also hope that if they (Kate and TLC) do continue to try to exploit the kids that Jon will be able to legally stop it.

Unfortunately, It wouldn't surprise me if there's a small break in filming and then they return to TV: "Growing Up Gosselin."

Robin said...

Kate's first tweet of the day:

"Well,I overslept so no am run4me!Trdmill run later.. Huge list&no babysitter agn 2day so will be busy! Will tweet ya later-off 2make bfast! about an hour ago"

Oh, WAHHHHH!!! for Kate! No babysitter! WAAAAHHHHH!!!

Really. So much wrong with this. First of all, this was posted at almost 9:00 eastern time. What mom - SINGLE mom - sleeps in until almost 9:00? And what mom of eight kids ages 7 & 10 is able to get her kids to wait until after 9:00 to eat breakfast? WTF?

I thought school started this week at the Gosselins' school?

AND! She has no babysitter, yet she was planning on going for a run early this morning. Wow. Didn't she just prove what has been suspected - that she leaves the children alone in the house while she runs? It would be one thing if she did this and wasn't someone who was "known", didn't live in a freaking mansion, just had one 10 year old and one 7 year old, and DIDN'T ANNOUNCE IT ON TWITTER. But she has four strikes against her on this I don't care what kind of security system it is, or how responsible M&C are. This is WRONG.

This also must mean that she *has* had "help" for the last few weeks since she last tweeted that she had "no help". Seems like we can assume that if she doesn't mention that she has "no help", that she has a not-a-nanny there doing all of the work.

Warmth Of The Sun said...

I forget who asked it, but I think Kate said 'aviator flu.'

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

It was aviation flu. It's all over the other blogs and Twitter - they're having a field day with it!

Mom In Lancaster County said...

"I thought school started this week at the Gosselins' school?"

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

It starts on Thursday.

silimom said...

Warmth of the Sun - re: the contest, frankly I think she's just being lazy. After all, the contest was only to drum up free promotion and to boost Kate's ego (look what people are willing to do for little ol' me!). Now that it's over and she got what she wanted it's not a high priority.

After all, it's all just her. It's not like she has a secretary. And did the kids start back this week? Or was it next week? Either way, she's probably busy with back to school stuff.

Administrator said...

Most concerning of all is her admission that had she not slept in like a lazy butt, she would have gone running. And that the kids don't have a babysitter today! Wtf! For all we know some creep is now going to wait outside the house all week until she goes running again. These kids are absolutely not old enough to all be left alone, there are too many of them. I am beginning to think Mady and Cara are becoming extremely parentified lately, and it's very unhealthy.

Her contest is too funny. Of course she hasn't mailed out the prizes. It takes an hour out of her day, yuck. It IS laziness, that's all. The fun is over, the attention and signs about her is over, it didn't help because the show is canceled, leaving her with no motivation to follow through with what she said she would do. It does not motivate her at all, as it would you and me and normal people, to know that the winners are sitting there waiting for their prizes. She could care less.

Warmth Of The Sun said...

Did I read this right on Twitter - Kate has no sitter, but Kate was going running, and she ANNOUNCES it! With stalkers out there, she puts this information out to the public? Is she insane?

She says that she overslept - but did she really? Was this just to cover her tracks and she did, in fact, leave those kids alone?

Administrator said...

Judging by her tweets, I think this woman regularly gets up at 9 or 10 o'clock. Her laziness is astounding. I mean we already knew she was but I really don't see how any of her fans, especially with kids, could ever relate to this sloth. I don't think there is a mother on this planet who sleeps until 9 or 10 o'clock more than one or two days a year, if EVER.

Administrator said...

Is she insane?
&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&
Yes.

Administrator said...

.....Hey, Kate............while you sit on your lazy butt and tweet, two families were already helped days ago by bloggers here who won our contest at 15 Minutes.

As she sheeple say, Just sayin'!

Mom In Lancaster County said...

"And that the kids don't have a babysitter today! Wtf! For all we know some creep is now going to wait outside the house all week until she goes running again."

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

They'll be waiting for nothing. The kids start school this week. Thank goodness.

Maybe Steve is still there, so when she says that she has no sitter, she's technically not lying. I don't think "sitter" is in his job description. Those kids most definitely are too young to be left alone, even for a minute. If they are being left alone while she runs, I wonder if Jon knows it.

Administrator said...

Mom in Lancaster, so what if school is starting? What about weekends and holidays? She runs then. It is very concerning that she is basically tweeting a road map for any creep to follow. I.e. when I'm out running the kids might very well be home without a babysitter. She has admitted she left the kids alone before, she does this. She even did it when they were little kids and one of the girl tups seriously injured herself and needed stitches they never knew how she did it, this was all in her own book. Well, duh, because you can't leave your kid alone!

She doesn't have a protective bone in her body. If Jon tweeted something like this Kate would have him dragged to court so fast for neglect.

bearswife said...

Is there any kind of law governing 'latch-key' kids? where I live kids have to be 11 years old before a parent can leave them alone - for ANY amount of time. My neighbour has just started leaving her (11 YO) daughter home alone, but the daughter knows there are 2 neighbours she can call any time for help (myself and another woman).
If I had to venture a guess I would say PA does not have a law like ours. They seem to be seriously lacking when it comes to protecting minors.
I don't believe anything out of Kate's mouth. She is just playing the poor single mom card today.
Any way you slice it, she is despicable!

Administrator said...

It's sad that you need a state law to tell a parent you don't leave freaking two 10-year-olds home alone with six seven year olds!

If Kate constantly needs a nanny to look after these kids how in the world does she expect 10 year olds to do it?

TLC stinks said...

I saw a tweet that she said Ashley was back in school so that explains Ashey's tears in the upcoming RV episode. Kate also said she misses her. No way was Ashley going to bite off the hand that feeds her by bitching against Kate. Must have been some drama between her and Jamie.

I agree that either she is lying about being "alone" (where's Steve?) or she is pawning off the tups on Cara and Mady. I think she has boxed herself in on this one. Either way, it doesn't look good: an irresponsible parent or a liar.

TLC stinks said...

Pennsylvania punishes child abandonment as endangering the welfare of a child, commonly referred to as EWOC. Pennsylvania Code section 4304(1) states that any parent, guardian or other person responsible for the welfare of a child commits an offense if he knowingly endangers a child's welfare by failing to properly care for, or supervise, a child, or otherwise violates a duty of care.

Westcoaster said...

If she were my neighbor, and I felt she was leaving 8 children alone to go running, at their ages, AND tweeting this fact, I would call child protective services, and i would call them regularly. Sloth is one thing, endangerment anothet.

librarylady said...

I don't think she goes out without someone there. I think she just doesn't have an "official" babysitter, but someone else is there - housecleaner, etc. So she says she doesn't ahve anyone.

TLC stinks said...

Well, now that we have brought it up, let's see if she tweets something about someone at the house who is not "officially" a babysitter. She ought to come clean about who helps her.

Mimi to 3 said...

First of all, they're not BABIES Kate, so you don't need a babysitter. What a slap in the face to those kids. All because she has some archaic idea that she will never hire a nanny.

librarylady said...

TLC stinks..lol! She probably won't say so because then it won't sound like she's ALL ALONE and EXHAUSTED!

fidosmommy said...

All I can say is that if I were a housekeeper or
laundry folder and I saw there were 8 hungry children whose own mother was sleeping in, I would fix them a bowl of cereal and offer some fruit for breakfast.

But Kate indicated the children had not been fed yet.

So, does that mean Mady and Cara are falling down on the job? (snark)

Mom In Lancaster County said...

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

But unfortunately there is no law in Pennsylvania that sets the age for which a child may be legally left alone. The suggested guideline is age 12. If CYS were called, legally, they couldn't prosecute. However, if something should happen while that child is alone, the court may step in to determine if that child was responsible enough, and mature enough to care for himself in the absence of a parent or guardian.

Two ten year olds are not mature enough or responsible enough to supervise eight seven-year-olds.

I would think that somebody is there in that house watching them. I cannot believe that Kate would be stupid enough to pull a stunt like that, and then announce it! But - it's Kate. You never know.

Mel said...

The last episode I saw Shoka in was the Easter episode.

Interesting that he was around that episode, but not for the summer games or the tree house episodes. You'd think the tree house time would have been perfect to have a dog around, especially is he's treated more as a guard dog.

My bet is that Shoka is no longer there. Guess that could be a question for Kate to answer in her last couch interview, eh?

Except she'd lie.

Jenna Does said...

My cousins had mother like that. Her & her husband divorced & my aunt just cared about going out, getting some & her next guy. My older cousins, who were close in age had to take care of my younger one. They saw their father, my uncle, on the weekend, but when I would hang out with my cuz, (we were & are still really close) she would tell me my aunt wouldn't come home til really late, sometimes not at all, so it was up to her & T to take care of F.

NOW, my aunt lives in FLA & she adopted a young girl from China a few years back. It really put an already big strain on her & her kids relationship. They barely talk. I know it's quite different, Kate doesn't go trolling for me...yet, but it may eventually happen. But leaving kids alone can scar them. My youngest cousin joined the military & is doing wonderfully. I hope Kate ACTUALLY engages SOME when she IS home. I know twitter is a big time sucker, I guess. If you let it...

Eagerly awaiting recap of chicks episode. I refuse to watch it but am mildly interested in knowing what fiction was presented.

Admin, I'm sorry you have to watch, but admire you for taking one for the team. Your recaps are very entertaining! {smile}

As for Shoka, you all know I think anything that comes from kart, either verbal, twit or screen is LIE. I also believe she plays with us and wouldn't be surprised at either 1) Shoka is gone, 2) Shoka is tied up, or 3) kart keeps him hidden to generate chatter on blogs.

Evil... but karma always surfaces. It's a pay me now, or pay me later thing. Eventually kart will get a raging karma slap right in her sad looking face.

My bet for karma is that she won't get her big entertainment jobs AND the kids, all or most, will get as far away from her as they can when they are old enough. Boy, is she going to suffer when they all hit their teen age years..

Eight-count em-eight teenagers???!!! Good luck kart.... LOL.

Teen years can be rocky, at best, but add in eight teens at once, living with a mother who treats them like.... well, you've seen it on the show.

I have to imagine this because I hope like h*ll we don't see anything of the kids then, as they live their private lives quietly out of sight.

Lorrie said...

Dr. Phil is disgusting, in my opinion. I've heard a rumor he's willing to have Casey Anthony's parents on his show, which I think equals career suicide. He is nothing more than a quack, someone who is interested in his silly show's ratings and nothing more. Makes sense that Jon would claim he was interested in keeping the Gosselin "brand" together, rather than helping save the marriage.

Permanent Name said...

Hippie Chick,

You made an interesting comment... about hoping kart engages at least a little when she's home with them....

Not being snarky here, but is it possible that once the possibility of fame is removed that kart might have an epiphany like moment, and actually spend some quality time with the kids?

Which came first, the chicken or the egg --- did TV make kart so amazingly bitchy and selfish, or was she like that to begin with?

Honestly, she was "almost" bearable in the first special before, it seems to me, fame and greed went to her head. True, the reports of her before marriage, and in the first couple of years were not that flattering...

But what if she never had the reality show? Would her head have gotten so big? Would she have come to feel that all the grifts/free stuff were her RIGHT?

I don't know. Maybe I'm being too charitable here, but I'd like to believe that in private, with no more chances of 'fame and fortune' kart might settle down to be a better mother than she is now............

It's the optimist in me.......

Slap me - I'm dreaming.

But really, really, really - this moment in her life is ANOTHER GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY. She blew the first one. But she's now at a fork in the road and if she wanted, she "could" make a good choice.

I guess my fingers are crossed for her.

Permanent Name said...

My fingers are definitely crossed for the kids.

AuntieAnn said...

Kate has never had a problem with leaving her kids with just about anyone. The camera crew sure came in handy lots of times. Jodi and Beth took them and then there was Nana Janet and a few others I can't recall off hand. I'll bet she even talked hotel housekeeping staff into watching them while she and her buddies went shopping on one of those many freebie vacations.

I don't think she worries about them at all. It must be another trait of narcissism - out of sight out of mind. She probably does cartwheels when they spend the weekend at their daddy's. That way she can get her Kate time in and who's more important to her than herself. I don't think Kate really wanted children, she just wanted babies to cuddle and only when SHE felt like cuddling them. Once they started walking and talking the thrill was gone for her.

_____________________________________________

So the hair is "all hers" even though you can plainly see from Friday's fake foto op, her natural hair is chin length while the extensions are shoulder length. She's right though, when she paid the plastic surgeon and underwent breast augmentation, the breasts were "all hers." When she paid Jason to attach extensions to her head, they were "all hers."

Kate ignores the haterz and doesn't care what they say, but yet again.... coincidentally after the discussion about how much she's aged, her makeup artist just happened to text and say she looks so young and like a teenager.
Credit for these gems goes to Tam from Preesi and her outstanding "Bitch Please" series. The comments she makes about Kate's tweets and twats are priceless!

My prediction is that we will see plenty in the future out of some of the little darlings. Katie can't control them now. This stew will brew for another 8 - 10 years or so, and will blow. There has got to be some in the press who are patiently waiting for the kids to get in trouble and then Katie will really find out what the "big bad press" is all about.

Your post made me smile. I have 2 two-year old Labs who sit and stare at me if I sleep in too long (past 6A, I swear the female wears a watch.) They just sit and stare. And wag their tales, which THUMP up against the dresser. Once I open an eye, they plunk their adorable chins down on the mattress and stare some more. But that THUMPING against the dresser increases in intensity. Then my mixed breed oldster will start panting at the foot of the bed as if something grand is about to happen.

As I groan my way out of bed, the 3 of them act as if I am the second coming. And by the time I open the back door for them - well, you would think they havent peed for 24 hours. Same thing with the dry kibble they get in their bowls in the morning - they act like I havent fed them in a week, instead of 12 hours.

There is such simple love and profound joy in everyday living. Too bad Katie Irene and her sheeple cannot feel it in their lives because of their obsession with wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony.

__________________

Uh-oh, Kate just bashed Kelly/Walt! What's going to happen when she no longer has a "security team?" I thought Kate didn't read hater tweets.

I'm wondering why Kate couldn't run this morning, even if she overslept. At 9 a.m., it was 65 degrees, low humidity, light breeze, perfect for running. She can't use the heat as an excuse because there was none. Heck, she even ran eight miles (or so she says) when there was 90 percent humidity and the heat index was over 100. So...why couldn't she run when she got awake? Could it be that she wanted to go out very early when she knew the kids would still be in bed and she wouldn't need anyone to watch them? Who knows how her mind works?

BTW...we had an earthquake, quite an experience here. I was sitting in a diner, having some coffee and reading the paper when the booth shook violently. I thought someone in the booth behind me was jumping around and I turned around to see if there were kids there. Nobody was there. I thought I was losing it, when everyone started getting up and chattering that it was an earthquake. Just then, the news of an earthquake flashed on the television. Interesting afternoon!

@kateplusmy8 Did u check out the blog post...excited to hear what u think

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

This sheeple is so far up Kate's butt that the only way for her to get out is to exit through the mouth. Is this what she teaches the teens in her workshop? Stalking 101? I hope that security team is on alert, especially since Kate's been tweeting where she is going, when, and that she has no sitter.

Just Dwindle: As I groan my way out of bed, the 3 of them act as if I am the second coming. And by the time I open the back door for them - well, you would think they havent peed for 24 hours. Same thing with the dry kibble they get in their bowls in the morning - they act like I havent fed them in a week, instead of 12 hours. And, Laurie, loved your comment about having "a dog own you." SO TRUE. Great, good, loving people on this blog.

There is such simple love and profound joy in everyday living. Too bad Katie Irene and her sheeple cannot feel it in their lives because of their obsession with wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony.

And This Just In: It wasnt really an actual earthquake after all; Just Kate Gosselin rearranging her shoe closet. International Geologists are studying the phenomenon, and the stock market went up in anticipation of Gosselin buying new shoes.

So the market's been down the past weeks because TLC canceled the show? :)

Wow 5.9 Epicenter in VA. Pretty big one. LOTS of aftershocks from that one. One reason I left CA. Hope no one here had damage or injury.

I hope her "security team" also watches the two that live near her.

Kat said...

Security "team"????????? How many are there? What is she...the President? Give me a break. Really....I can't stop laughing. This is stupid...even for HER! Oh, I forgot..she sooo important. I don't know what's wrong with me! I don't believe one thing this nut says. Who's buying all this crapola? Can't the family have her commited some how. This way at least she's off the streets.

I've got to get new reading glasses. I read that you do some groping, and couldn't imagine who or what you want to grope!

Mom In Lancaster County said: ...."I'm wondering why Kate couldn't run this morning, even if she overslept. At 9 a.m., it was 65 degrees, low humidity, light breeze, perfect for running. She can't use the heat as an excuse because there was none. Heck, she even ran eight miles (or so she says) when there was 90 percent humidity and the heat index was over 100. So...why couldn't she run when she got awake? Could it be that she wanted to go out very early when she knew the kids would still be in bed and she wouldn't need anyone to watch them? Who knows how her mind works?"
_________________________________________

That's the only conclusion I came to. She said she didn't get up early enough to run and she also said she doesn't have a babysitter today.


Last fall when Jon reported hours later that he had taken the twins to Olive Garden for their b-day, the sheeple had fainting spells and heart attacks. How dare he report that he had the girls at a restaurant and left hours ago!!! Doesn't he care about their saftey and security!!!!! Kate is all but coming out and saying she leaves the kids alone early in the am to run and the sheeple see nothing wrong with this. Even if she's not, even if she has security or someone there, why imply it? Why give some of these kooks who worship her any ideas? Then... conveniently to cover for this obvious gaffe, in a nod to Kelly she claims her crack "security team" is on to him. While I think a goat is a better parent than Kate, I really and truly don't think she'd leave the kids completely alone in the house. I don't. However, it seems like she's trying to create some kind of security breach, some type of situation which could be potentially scary but thwarted. Which could then spawn a press tour and magazine interviews telling the dramatic story. A People cover story with the headline "The Scary Side of Fame." I could be completely off base and probably, I am. But this isn't the first time she's been fast & loose with the details of the kid's whereabouts or whether she has a sitter for the day or not. Why take a chance? Why not err on the side of caution and SAY NOTHING regarding particulars on the kids? Why doesn't the "security team" stop this?

Oh! I LOVE avocados!! YUMMY! I'm putting some on my salad tonight actually! Did you know if you were stranded on an island & all you had were avocados, you would be able to sustain life on those alone because of all the nutrients & vitamins & water content? Yep! But don't forget your makeup artist! hahaha!! A pap could show up ANYWHERE ya know?!

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

Because there is no security team?

Hippie Chick said...

Earthquake in Kate's area? I thought maybe she was pulling something out of her butt...like a stick. Have you guys ever seen her walk in heels??? It's SO funny!! Like a new born calf learning to walk, or like she has something all stuck up in there, so maybe she was doing a removal this morning.

Stupid is said...

Why can't her security team STOP WHAT?
Tweets?

How about her fans stop harassing Ellen and Jon?
How about her fans stop making web pages about non-fans and trolling their blogs??
