You all rock! Thanks, admin, for judging and sharing.

Funny! said...

OMG! Too funny!!!

The only one I wish you'd remove is the "Hollywood" sign. Kate was never a star, Hollywood doesn't care.

Moose Mania said...

How did you decide? I would have been pulling my hair out. These were great! Thanks for the laugh of the day. I'm afraid to ask if there will be any more contests! ;)

A Pink Slip (I mean) Jacket For Kate said...

Hahaha! I think that I prefer your contest over Kate's!!

Lots of fun :o)

Thanks for the opportunity to give it a try!

Congrats to the talented winners- VERY FUNNY!

At the end of the day I picked the 2 that made me choke the most.

Poor Fat BM said...

I belive BM (aptly chosen name) was sincere in her adolescent lust for everything Kate.

The DV comments rang true. BM is a miserable old (over 40 now) obese woman who would rather die in shame than admit she has neglected everything that should be important in her life to worship Kate.

Kate has dissed her how many times?

Any rational person would be embarrassed and angry at the false idol who has treated her like crap.

Anonymous said...

Thanks, admin! I'm guessing you put on a blindfold and did eeny meeny miney mo, I don't see any other way you could have chosen. It's surprisingly nice that we could use such negative emotions as inspiration for fun artistic expression.

I promise not to park in the fire lane when I take my gift card to Target.

Wow! So many creative people here on this blog!

Just Dwindle Away, congratulations! Yours is the funniest!

Fade2Black, what perfect timing! Admin should have used your pic for the Kate Plus 8 cancellation thread!

Thanks for the laughs, everyone!

Jon's No Saint said...

Kate's been the easy target, and she deserves every ounce of outrage and disdain.

Jon? I think we have supported him as the lesser of two evils, which is fine. I think he is far better and far worse than Kate in many ways. He is not the "decent guy" he has fooled some of the bored housewives into believing he is.

When it comes to the kids, it's hard to say which parent is worse.

It breaks my heart to know that these eight children do not have a responsible parent.

I wish ONE of them would get real. I think they both suufer from arrested development.

Sharon said...

You guys are so great! So clever and hilarious! They ALL cracked me up. I loved Kate's ugly dress from DWTS going down the drain, that's where it belonged, along with her ''dancing.''
I'd rather poke my eye out than watch her too, that's why I never watched again after the first episode of K+8. I bet she's not so smug right about now.
What a great way to end this day of good news.
Thanks to all of you! Love it PINK SLIP!

I really liked MomRulz's one too. It was a very close call for second place! It was simple yet conveyed the message.

Congrats to everyone.

Great job everyone! Congrats to the winners, and I sincerely hope you don't run into Khate at Target, lol!

What PERFECT timing this has been. This contest was SO much better than Khate's. Plus, she didn't even have a way of showing everyone the submissions. If she weren't so lazy, she'd have a blog.

Teresa said...

Hilarious! Holy cow...lol

Grammy of nine said...

So, so funny! Congrats to the winners!! Just a side note, it's late and I caught a glimpse of Kate answering the "viewer" questions on repeat. She looks HORRIBLE! The ugly just can't be hidden by the make-up. When she was talking about Kevin-WOW did she look rough. Time for it to end. Those poor little kids need somebody besides Kate.

Call Me Crazy said...

Congratulations Just Dwindle Away and Fade2Black! Great job, everyone! What a fitting way to celebrate the news!

Ingrid said...

Congrats to everyone. I think they were all great. I would have had a hard time choosing but Admin you did good!!!

Her show was closer to death than I thought when I made mine and now down the drain! (I hope)

This is not even funny! Parents where are you? Your daughter needs help... stat!

Congrats just dwindle away and fade 2 black and all the others who made one up, so fitting and so fun! Admin., it was like you knew and planned this, just before tlc found their brain and cancelled the beeotch!


may I just sing a few bars--'Ding Dong, the witch is dead, the wicked witch is dead!!!'Thanks, I feel so much better now....

gotyournumberKate said...

Admin, I don't know much about this at all but couldn't Kate just sit back and make a ton of money off the repeats/residuals? I'm sure by the time her last contract was signed Kate had an attorney getting her the most they could get. Kate Plus 8 followed huge ratings from Jon & Kate Plus 8. I was so happy to read on the KP8 Facebook page how many people thought the show went downhill after Jon left.

Also, I think Kate will now have to resort to lowering her standards when it comes to work. She already has as proven with Ab Champs and the tacky clothing line from Florida but I still can see $100k offers here and there for her. A couple of those a year would be more than enough to raise her kids along with any savings she put away for this day. I still believe Kate has a lot of money stashed away but will refuse to touch it because it is for "her" future. She's already crying poor again. Hispanic Elvis invited her to San Diego to the beach and she said she can't afford the beach now. The next few months will be interesting to watch her on Twitter for sure.

gramof5 said...

I pray the Gosselin children had a restful and peaceful night.This may be difficult for them as they are so used to the "The Crew" in their faces all day and night.
I woke up wondering if Jon was truly there for them, as I think they will need some professional help and as important, their Dads love and support more than ever now.
Hell, I'm a grown woman and I would be afraid to be alone in that big ass house with just Kate now.
It may be days before she will get out of bed now that her glory days are over.
I will admit that, a little piece of me felt some pity for her last night as she looked like death warmed over.
How could a woman change so much in 2 years?
As much as the kids need help..so does Kate.
The entries were all great and I know it was difficult for Admin. to choose the winners. I enjoyed all of them.
If I would have won those Target gift certicates, I would have to donate them to the Target employees that have had to put up with Kate Gosselin in their checkout lane!
That would buy them a nice pizza party !
Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead !!!!

mama mia said...

So Kate, how come TLC could only find touching sweet footage of Jon interacting with the children? Maybe you need to quit running and devote your time to parenting?

Laura D. said...

Oh my gosh, these posters are laugh-out-load funny. What a witty bunch!

Kate Plus 8 is finally cancelled!! We all saw it coming but the way it was announced was like something dropping out of the sky. Wow.

I was so giddy last night I couldn't sleep so decided to watch at midnight. Sorry, just this once; it's cancelled anyway. This "questions from Twitter" thing was suprisingly retrospective. TLC knew exactly what they were doing when they put that together even if Kate didn't. She's still denying the fake boobs, by the way. As mama mia pointed out the only footage of Jon was loving, hugging kissing & playing with his kids while Kate's stupid voice-over threw him under the bus as usual. I think TLC was having a little fun at Kate's expence. How how the mighty Kate has fallen!

fidosmommy said...

RE: residuals for Kate

Years ago we discussed this, and it was said
then that Jon and Kate receive no residuals from Jon and Kate Plus 8. They would receive no royalties from the DVD sales. It looked like they were so excited about getting the flat salary that residuals and royalties never entered their negotiations. It was said they did all this without a lawyer involved.

Kate may have added that to her Kate Plus 8 contract, but there have not been as many shows of K+8, so residuals would be peanuts compared to what they could have had.

Are they even selling DVD's of Kate + 8? If they are, I haven't seen any.

Gosselin8ComeFirst said...

The contest entries are hilarious! What a talented, creative group of people at this site! Congrats to the winners!

Dallas Lady said...

Residuals aren't common with reality shows, anyway.

Those entries are fab! I don't know how you picked. Amanda, Pink, and Ingrid made me choke on my coffee. Just Dwindle Away's is AWESOME.

And Holly's is great. I thought after "watch my dog poop" it would read "still more interesting than Kate Plus 8" but your wording is even better.

Laura D. said...

Now Kate's throwing TLC under the bus. She retweeted:

Hippie Chick said...

Great entries all! So funny! Just Dwindle...are you an artist?

No Regrets said...

Just Dwindle Away and Fade2Black great job you guys and everyone. This was FUN. LOL Ours were much better than that "other" contest. hahaha

I had read her show last night was sorta saying "goodbye". As in what she would do in the future. I don't know, couldn't, wouldn't watch. From the shot I did see she sure did look rough. She has really aged, badly.

No Regrets said...

Any of her celebrity "friends" ever tweet her? The ones she is SO close to.

barbee said...

although she is done, she can't admit it. she'd like to write a book! Well, dear, you need a working knowledge of the English language, the ability to think of something other than yourself (the collapse of your reality endeavor is proof that NO ONE is interested in YOU), and, most of all, you need to have something to say and be able to say it.

she can stop worrying about putting 8 kids through college as her constant disregard for their schooling (i.e., pull them out for work consistently)has resulted in several of them showing signs of very slow development. the sad thing about the kids is that they come across as undisciplined and immature and all they are doing is following her lead and copying her poor behavior. it's not fair to label kids as bratty when they have never been taught any better. Mady and Cara had a normal life for their first several years and both have shown typical intelligence and manners for 10 year olds. The 'tups', however, have ALWAYS acted as an unruly, undisciplined pack. Some have shown signs of being somewhat bright, where others have shown signs of not having developed as much as typical 7 year olds and are quite babyish in their actions.

We can only HOPE AND PRAY that life with Kate After Kancellation is not the Hell we can well expect after having witnessed her volatile nature for these last six years, seasons, series of episodes.

______________________________________________
Lol.... TLC gave the Roloffs a much warmer cancellation announcement. Kate's was a bit terse. If I had to guess, I'm thinking there's bad blood between Kate and TLC at the moment.

I'm in the minority, but I think Kate got the cancellation news last spring. That's when she started crying poor and started laying it on extra thick that she had 8 kids to raise. Just like she's not done punishing Jon almost TWO years after the divorce, I doubt she's going to part ways graciously with TLC and move on. I see her putting out a tell all book by next year. She only has herself to blame, she refused to move out of her comfort level and do anything that remotely resembled work. The original Twist of Kate show with her doing dirty jobs would have probably been a hit. Apparently she was too good for that.

While I'm overjoyed for the kids that the show is cancelled and those cameras will be out of their faces, I share the same concerns as everyone else, will the kids receive Kate's wrath? At least the timing couldn't have been better, with the kids heading back to school. As far as Kate mentioning how Mady loves to perform and Disney, I hope Disney recognizes a stage parent from hell when they see one and runs the other direction. I do not want to read in 10 years that Kate is suing Mady for her monthly support like Leighton Meester's mother.

The sign entries were hilarious, what a creative group here! Although I didn't expect anything less from this intelligent, witty, and all around awesome group of people!

No Regrets said...

"Has no idea the hell the kids and I have been thru"

The initial conversation was about Kate not moving on from Jon. So Jon put her and the kids thru hell? This bitter nut CAN'T move on. That is obvious. She can't stop putting him down. She is such a lot class fool.

Hippie Chick said...

Great article Fahnette! And I also think it's funny that nobody has mentioned her celeb friends twittering their apologies that her show has been canceled. It was all in her head that she had friends in high places. She has been fading into obscurity for awhile now...keep going Kate!

Fahnette said...

Rene breaks it down so elegantly.

"What I saw when I watched Kate, was someone whose world ended at the tip of her nose. It was ALWAYS about her. She treated nearly everyone around her like crap; whether they were there to help or they had more intimate dealings with her (like her ex) they were all bit players in a production that revolved around her."

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&
This is the woman who was going to have a View-style TV show with Kate and Paula Deen if I remember correctly. She actually worked with Kate and got to know her. So she took up the challenge to meet her and get to know the real her, and, gasp, still doesn't like her!

These are not anonymous people on the internet speaking out about a TV show, this is a real person with real interactions with Kate who has seen through her crap.

Administrator said...

"They were all bit players in a production that revolved around her."
&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

If I had to sum up Kate in just one sentence, that would be it. Thanks, Rene.

Administrator said...

You know one more thing about Rene it's refreshing to see someone in the business not kissing her ass like most of them do.

The fact is, we shouldn't accept someone's poor behavior and ill treatment of others even if they're a celeb or you're a celeb or it's not polite. Poor behavior is not acceptable, mistreatment of others is not acceptable, and I don't believe it's bad manners to say something about it. When you don't, and just smile and nod and invite them back to your show next time, you CONDONE the behavior.

Boston Bonnie said...

"has no idea the hell the kids and I have been thru"

No Kate sadly every bit of hell or perceived hell has been shown to each and everyone of us and you were the devil.

Jon may have started out to be as enamored with the rich and beautiful life as you were but he came to the realization that it was slowing killing his children. Get over yourself Kate!

Administrator said...

Does she tell the kids that? Your Daddy put us through hell?

Divorce IS hell, usually. Hell on everyone. But let's review the paperwork again. Oh, gosh gee willikers, Kate is the plaintiff! Kate filed for divorce, not Jon.

Administrator said...

This is in response to a post last night saying Jon and Kate share equal blame. At this point in this saga, I disagree.

You know when the sheeple would talk about how we all expect parents to be perfect and we all think we're perfect parents, yada yada? See, I think Jon is an example of how I really feel about whether parents need to be "perfect parents." Jon is not perfect of course, as is no parent. He has made some mistakes. But the reason I accept Jon at this point is because he recognizes his shortcomings, apologized for them, and has tried to improve and HAS improved. Jon is a budding work in progess going in the right direction. That's what I ask of a parent, that if you used to make big mistakes, stop doing them and move forward. He is a perfect example of how I really feel, and it's certainly not that a parent must be perfect.

The reason I can't give the same leeway to Kate, who is also not a perfect parent, is because she doesn't even admit she is making any mistakes, let alone try to fix them or move in the right direction. In fact she just digs her heels into the ground and keeps hurting her family and disregards any and all suggestions maybe she might try something different. She is indeed circling the drain and has made zero attempt to even recognize her shortcomings let alone try to fix them.

So it's not that I expect parents to be perfect. It's that I expect them to recognize shortcomings and try to improve them and make progress. Something Kate has never, and likely will never, do.

@SuperPattyPie THREE times, SPP! Two books were in the top ten at once as I recall-- a rare occurrence :)

This is a total lie. Her second 'book' was panned and did very poorly. It was nothing but a book of photos. Even fans panned this book. The third book did under 20K of sales. The only book that did well was Beth Carson's.

Falling like a brick said...

Hey KATE!
I know you read here.
Why don't you get your butt off twitter (for the past two days) and actually pay attention to the 8 kids you have at home right now before they start school?

You're need for adoration from your 'public' is absolutely incredible and seriously could be construed that you don't care about your children if you aren't filming them.

Go to a park - or to a fair - or to Blue Marsh which is only 5 minutes from your house and has a great hiking trail and a tour of the dam (for free even). It's a lovely day in PA right now. A bit overcast, but still there is so much you CAN do...but you would rather tweet to empty praise. It's so sad to watch.
I'm outta here. I've got plans with my kids to enjoy the last couple of weeks before school starts here in Lancaster County. Perhaps you should do the same.

Kate is really talking smack about Jen. Wow. She IS losing it. Of course the fans are dissing Jen badly to her too. WOW Kate.

Anonymous said...

Congratulations to all contestants!! The entries pictured are hilarious!! Confession time - because the 'show' is cancelled (and because I'm in Canada and my viewing will not be included in the rating, I think) I watched the show last night. I only became aware of this family around the time of the divorce when magazine covers at the checkout counter distracted me. Watching last night I was amazed at how she has morphed from a sweats clad Mom into the slut appearing person she has become - I found it truly shocking. I hope now she can finally find herself a job and the children can 'retire' to well deserved childhood. I worry a lot of damage has been done to them but from what I've read, Jon's head and heart is in the right place, and hopefully he, and Child Protective Services, will monitor them to ensure they are permitted the privacy and care they are entitled to. As I said yesterday, I hope their mother does not tap into THEIR earnings in order to continue the lifestyle that SHE has become accustomed to.

Michelle said...

Outstanding signs! And thanks to Kate for the amazing idea. Perfect timing with the cancellation.

Admin, I hope you're going to recap last night's Q&A episode. My sister was telling me she caught a second flipping by and swears she heard Kate saying something about how ridiculous it is that the court allows someone (their father) who only sees them four days a month any say in their lives at all. Hope my sister heard that wrong.

gotyournumberKate said...

Hate sure unfollowed all her contest winners fast. Aw, stupid sheeple.....

Just Dwindle Away said...

Good Morning. I am in the Eastern Time Zone and went to bed last night before all the festivities on this site. Finally got around to cracking open my email this morning and found a message from our Admin!

I seriously cannot believe I won, and am HONORED to be in the company of such good people and their fun entries! You guys are great and so inventive too! Thank you sooo much, all of you, for your kind words!

The gift certif is going to be used either for the nearest USO, or for a teacher-friend who has a class of rural 6th graders, many of whom will be in need of some very basic items. I am leaning toward the USO.

Again, thank you Admin not only for this but for all you do.

PS - Just got a call back from someone from the USO here in my area. They have a list of items that are needed for some of their service families and would I mind terribly shopping for the items and then donating THOSE, rather than sending them an on-line gift certif? HECK no, I wouldnt mind! How fun for me! So that is what it happening with the gift certif, folks. Hope you dont mind.

Westcoaster said...

Ah poor Kaite Irene, all she can do now is Twitter all day to her crushed tweenie fans (hello parents, do you have any clue what you children do all day). Actually, hello Katie, do you have any idea what you children do all day while YOU twitter?

And I so agree with Admin about Jon; he was not my favorite person in this mess a few years ago, but today, yes, he is certainly a person who has put immature behavior behind and moved forward as an adult with his children. But the sheeple, who will forgive Kate everything including her continued rude and awful behavior, think he is evil incarnate. Well screw the sheeple and their opinions.

Kate with her blinders on should be very careful about what she says about TLC on Twitter; they are still the ones who could very easily do specials and keep her income for a long while. They are also still her only real connection to the show biz world she craves. But no, she is, and will forever, play the junior high school card. Twitter on, Kate, twitter on.

PJ's momma said...

No Regrets, you did hear right. My hubby watched a few minutes and I heard that part. She said she has those kids every day and she doesn't understand why he who sees them 4 days a month gets an opinion in a court of law. No doubt if his opinion matched hers, she wouldn't care. She also said that she tells the kids when they go to their dad's, leave their backpacks in the big blue bus or she won't get them back. She was horrible. This is from the woman who keeps tweeting that she looks for the positive, never looks back, etc. She is nuts.

I so agree with you. I did say that Kate would NOT drop twitter because she NEEDS this. Looking at all the tweets last night and even this AM, she is not paying one bit of attention to those kids. She is really pathetic. Really, really pathetic.

She is already crying poor and 'scared' about ONE mom with EIGHT kids and supporting them. She can't 'afford" things now. I bet she did tell the kids "no more trips" "no more pool slides" "no more anything".

This is what this dummy gets for putting her eggs in one basket. You don't put your future nor your kids into a reality show and TLC hands and call it your "career". Lazy, immature woman. The more she cries poor, the more it convinces me she should be investigated for mismanagment of the money.

My parents told us, do not ever 'step' on anyone on your way up in life, you never know when you might need them. Kate never learned this. She has no rungs in her ladder going down.

I have never heard such a petty, small, vindictive idiot in my life. That is their FATHER. I am absolutely appalled she would say such a thing. Those poor kids. Can you imagine what she says to them if she admits to telling them to leave their backpacks in the bus? One of her tweets this am said she could say so much more but for the kids, she won't. She won't say anything bad? Are you kidding me? What a petty idiotic fool. The kids will not forget all the rotten things she has said.

Thanks Pj's mom. This makes me absolutely sick.

Kat said...

Oh man...she's becoming unglued. Are you reading her twats? Sound like she doesn't care who she throws under the bus now. I guess she feels she has nothing to lose. Would love to know who's taking care of those kids while she's on twitter trying to make it sound like she's fine with this whole thing. And that she will survive. I really think this is killing her. Without TLC, there's not much of a career left. They lined her up with all kinds of gigs. Now she's on her own to market herself. SCARY!

mama mia said...

Kate is whining that the media/TLC have portrayed her as a horrible person, and this is not true. She says "editing" is the problem. In the same breath Kate is bragging about being a NY Times best selling author. No, Kate, that too is fabrication. You can not write a book to save your house, nor can you sell books to save your house. That is why you are so freaked out now. You have been coasting along on this media/TLC fabricated celebrity image taking what could be had for free,cashing the cheques, and now that the run is over you are blaming TLC and the media, classic. Starving yourself thin and tanning yourself sick are not examples of hard work, yet this is the work ethic you cling to when you state hard work and prayer will get you through hard times. Why should God give you more money? Because that is essentially what you are requesting. You are wanting a lifestyle while shirking your responsibilities to give life to your children. You figure you carried them in your belly and saw them through the birthing and your job is over. It is all about you now Kate, isn't it? That is what the public saw, that is what disgusted and turned the viewers off. A handful of lost souls identified with you, admired you, follow you but those of us who truly work hard, love our children and protect them with all our might have zero respect or admiration for you. I don't wish you harm, I just wish you'd grow up fast and save your children from you.

U.G.L.Y. said...

What an idiot said...

I've been reading Kate's twitter page and LOL at all of her RTs (retweets) especially recently where fans are complimenting her and telling her how much they'll miss the show. I have a very strong feeling she thinks these will get to TLC and they'll take notice, but as usual, there's one very MAJOR flaw with her plan. She's sending the RTs to herself; not once has she sent one to TLC (and neither have the fans.

I needed this chuckle this morning. Thanks Kate, for once again showing your ignorance. She's really on a roll, isn't she? What with the ridiculous contest to the string of RTs, what will she do next?


I think the answer to the question of what she'll do next is in her tweets below. In less than 24 hours she's put the blame for her problems on TLC, the show's time slot, Jon, her family, and is now personally going after haterz. She was never a high road taker and with each tweet we see more of the ugliness inside her.



Spewing venom today said...

We speculated what Kate would do when the show was finally cancelled and we're seeing it in the words she's using on Twitter this morning. I worry for the kids when she's in this frame of mind even more after reading some of today's ugliest.

I don't remember when any celeb interacted with fans and haters like this. She must not realize that she has very few options left and that if she wants to continue in television (as she said she hopes) it's the public who will make or break her and that she's looking even worse than she ever did with these interactions on Twitter. Keep it up Kate; before long you won't even be able to get a job at McDonalds.

@SuperPattyPie what????? If she's so wise, wouldn't we see her on a book cover or on tv? Lol

Westcoaster said...Kate with her blinders on should be very careful about what she says about TLC on Twitter; they are still the ones who could very easily do specials and keep her income for a long while.

I agree she should (operative word there is SHOULD) keep her mouth shut, but she won't. She's burned so many bridges behind her because her narcissism is a HUGE problem which she refuses to come to terms with. I'm sure anyone who's dealt with her recognizes that she needs professional help but true to the disorder SHE won't admit it. I think it's such a tragedy that there's a wasteland full of victims left behind every time someone crosses her. Her narcissism is going to be her downfall if, it isn't already.

Kat said... Oh man...she's becoming unglued.

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

I only read on here what you guys post. But it is beginning to seem alot like the breakdown she had 2 years ago, when the marriage first ended.

That summer she ran around bra-less in the same 3 baby-doll dresses, in slippers, her hair dirty and uncombed, drunk or hungover with the mysterious 'coffee mug' always in her hand, hitting the kids in the driveway...

After that she found more ways to be away from the kids and focused all her attention on copying the "Diva Housewives of Hoochie-Coochie County" look. She came out of that little breakdown even colder, uglier and more distant than she had been.

Wonder what THIS breakdown will lead to. And by the way, Katie Irene, everyone loses a job from time to time in their lives. Ya have a little cry, (or a happy dance) and the next day ya move on. 'Move on' does not mean that you find new ways to be nasty about it for years on end.

Jupiter said...

I was surprised Kate responded to me (I am JensOpinion) because I didn't think she read non-fan tweets. I'm sure it angered her fans who have been hammering for a reply for a long long time.

That made me laugh.

JUPITER .. what you said about Jon was very true. If not why such a reaction from her? YOU hit a nerve. I cannot believe she said what she did about Jon on the show. SHE CAN"T MOVE ON. I have said that many times.

What a spiteful, horrible, petty fool she is.

Nobody Likes a Narcissist said...

LOL, I wasn't sure if we were now carrying on the conversation in this post or the other one (which I just posted a comment in).

I took a quick look on Twitter and sheeple are posting over and over again that Khate should have a blog so she can keep "sharing" the kids' lives, posting photos and updates for the kids. Sheesh, leave these kids alone! Don't these sheeple have their own kids or grandchildren? Really, what makes them so special? People just have to watch them? I don't get it.

Also, I love the way the sheeple act as if Khate OWNS these kids, like they're her chattel that she can display freely wherever and whenever she wants. Does ANYBODY care about how the kids feel? I know, don't answer that, lol. They didn't care when the kids were on tv. But, c'mon, how many kids - especially tween grils - want Mommy posting photos of them online? Can you just imagine Khate having a blog where she's posting their pics for all the sheeple? How would Khate feel if her mother did that when she was growing up?

I think Khate's too lazy for a blog, as I said last night but it's funny that I posted that last night and today they're all asking Khate to do a blog. Anyway, Khate might be prohibited from doing so under the terms of their final judgment of divorce. If not, Jon might just have to go back to court if Khate's going to insist in pimping out their childhood on the internet. Of course, Khate will argue they're "famous" and maybe she'll call herself their manager, trying to book them jobs. I saw someone mentioned Mady would be good for Disney and Khate agreed, loved the idea. Gee sheeple, do YOUR 7 and 10 year olds have jobs??? Why do you keep insisting the Gosselin kids WORK? Really, in tweeting to Khate that Mady could be on Disney it was as if the sheeple were admitting that in this family, the KIDS have to work and support Khate and themselves. They're so worried that Khate lost the TLC show, that they immediately jumped to thinking she can live off Mady working for Disney. Sick people, really sick.

There you have it, everyone! Khate has confirmed that for her, it's ALL about fame and money. She thinks that the biggest insult she can give a non-fan is that she, the non-fan, isn't FAMOUS, on book covers, on TV!

Nobody Likes a Narcissist said...

Wow, that's terrible about the suicide. I know nothing about that show, other than what I've seen in article online. But, I just went to People magazine and it says they have a 5 year old, So sad! It also said they were in the middle of a divorce and a 1.5 million breach of contract lawsuit. Okay, I'm going to just say it....I guarantee you that if I bothered to look around on the blogs and Twitter that one of the sheeple is going to say it, and you all know what I'm talking about!

-ATTENTION SHEEPLE-

[An excerpt from Rene Syler's blog]

I could go on about the days I spent with Kate, shooting a pilot, and the things she did to back up the initial opinion I formed of her – but why bother? It’s over now; the show and Kate Gosselin overstayed their welcome and it’s time to sign off. And while I wish her the best, I for one can’t say I’m sorry to see her go.


**Also PLEASE READ Richard Drew's (Rene's hubby) blog entry on Kate, "THE CRYING GAME- Why Everyone Has A Kate Gosselin In Their Lives"**

http://www.remotepatrolled.com/2010/04/the-crying-game/

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

Well, there you go.

In case people (or Kate) still think that she will survive in show business- THINK AGAIN.

It's much more complicated than Kate not having a talented bone in her body. Kate has serious mental issues, and is unable to work well with others.

THAT'S why she was picked on as a child, and THAT'S why people cannot stand her as an adult.

....so her "lips are sealed (4kids) unless discussing my feelings on subj!"
...like on Twitter?????
Too bad her ears don't hear what her lips are saying.
Kate is angry that she's been foiled by Jon. She thought he was a roadblock because he didn't have the same ambition and was not as "articulate" as her. She's learned the hard way that she misjudged Jon's role in the success of the show. She "honestly" thought that she was the drawing card and would be much more successful without him. This is a case where "slow and steady" wins the race. Jon's the clear winner between the two of them. Unfortunately it's the kids who have lost the most.

Nobody Likes a Narcissist said...

Btw, about the winners of Khate's "contest", I saw some of Khate's tweets and some of the sheeple tweets where they confirmed that she followed them so they could DM her their addresses (send a direct, private message to her).

http://corporate.discovery.com/contact/ethics-hotline/

Discovery is committed to managing its business activities in full compliance with all applicable laws and regulations and to ensuring honest and ethical behavior by its directors, officers, employees and contingent workers. To facilitate and encourage the prompt reporting of suspected events of non-compliance, and to provide employees and contingent workers with a confidential, anonymous, toll-free avenue for reporting suspected events of non-compliance, Discovery has established a toll-free Ethics Hotline, operated by a third-party provider, The Network.

To contact the Ethics Hotline in the U.S. and Canada, please dial (800) 398-6395.

Outside of the U.S. and Canada, please dial +1-800-398-6395 and use the appropriate toll-free access code listed below.

If you have a concern related to Discovery programming or would like to provide feedback, please contact our Viewer Relations department.


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

So, I called them and spent about ten minutes or so on the phone. You have to be clear that this is NOT about a TLC show, but about a suspected violation of law by a TLC employee. It doesn't even have to be that, could just be unethical, which it certainly is.

They ask for the name of the person calling with the report, but they also advise that you can remain anonymous, which I chose to do. I did however inform them that I was an attorney from a particular state. Not that it matters, but I told them that they need to have their Legal Department look at this right away since there are liability issues for TLC, as Khate was doing this to promote one of their shows.

I made it very clear that this did not occur on the show because this hotline is not for viewers to call with complaints about their programming. I advised them that the purpose of my call was to inform them that Kate Gosselin has used the show's name, TLC, her fans, her Twitter account, and the internet to hold a "contest". It involves TLC and the show of course, because the contest was for fans to draw up posters to advertise the show last night.

They asked what state the violation occurred in and I said Pennsylvania where Kate is, but she's engaging over the internet with minors in various states, and Canada, England, maybe more, (I didn't bother to check where all the winners were from, but I know one was in Canada and I think one was in England).

I told them this began on Sunday afternoon (August 14th), and continued throughout the day yesterday, last night when she announced the winners, and through to today. It's on her Twitter page and those of the winners how she followed them for the express purposes of obtaining their addresses (and presumably, full legal names so she could ship it to them).

I also told them that Kate has been engaging with them for several months on Twitter and she is WELL aware of the fact that they are minors. They are teenagers and she undoubtedly knows that. No once did I see her or anyone else mention parental consent.

It is a violation of federal law to use the internet for the purposes of obtaining names and addresses of minors without verifiable parental consent. The law does NOT provide an exception for "famous" people, nor does it care the reason for requesting and obtaining the names and addresses. This is one of the reasons why real contests and sweepstakes have a long list of rules and legal requirements, one of them being you must be 18 or older.

At the conclusion of our call, I was given a case number and asked to call back on August 30th for any follow up questions they might have.

ROL is not Kate's best friend anymore, they are showing her twitter feeds and rubbing it in that her 33,000 followers is peanuts with the millions Kim Kardashian and Snookie have.

Michelle said...

"No Regrets, you did hear right. My hubby watched a few minutes and I heard that part. She said she has those kids every day and she doesn't understand why he who sees them 4 days a month gets an opinion in a court of law."
---------
Those damn courts really burn her britches. Anytime anyone in her life has dared disagree with her - parents, siblings, nannies, etc. - she could kick them to the curb and punish them by withholding "her" children. Those pesky courts won't allow her to do the same to Jon and it eats at her soul.

Yep, Kate, you're just one big ball of "positivity"! I loved her tweet this morning that if you could meet her, you'd see the media creation is far from the real Kate. Kate, if you read here, read Rene Syler's blog today. She had an opinion of you from TV and when she met you and worked with you, you did NOTHING to change that opinion. You only reinforced it!

Mimi to 3 said...

No Regrets, your sister heard it right. Kate did indeed say that she couldn't believe the courts would allow someone who only sees them 4 days a month to have any say about anything regarding them. I decided to watch last night for the first time in over a year and a half because I wanted to see which Twitter fans questions she responded to. Just as I suspected, she only answered a very few of them and the vast majority of the show was spent showing scenes from the past, including Jon. She also trashed her brother. I guess she feels like it's just fine now that she is going off air (and I do think she already knew because it is written all over her face and her demeanor)to trash people she has previously been totally silent about. She said why Kevin thought he had any right to go before the media without first coming to her just made no sense and hurt her. Well, as I recall, Kevin DID indeed try to go to her and talk about things but she shut him down just like she does everyone. And why, in heavens name, is it ok for her to go to the media to slam Jon every chance she gets and then expect everyone else to sit back and take her crap?

At Twazzup this morning it is hilarious. The same fans that are always there are glorying in how many fans she has supporting her when those fans are RTing each other to make it appear she has these amazing numbers. Do they not see their stupidity in doing that.

Congrats to the winners. I so admire you guys and your sense of humor, creativity and talent. Love, love, love the winner and all the others and I especially love the circling the drain with Katie in her DWTS red dress swirling down.

AuntieAnn said...

"Russell [Armstrong] complained about the stress the television show was causing. “This show has literally pushed us to the limit,” he said in an interview earlier this year." (The Improper)

If it pushes grown adults to the limit, what is it doing to kids on reality shows. The time is way overdue to pull the reins in on the producers of this kind of show. And I hope the law intervenes and shackles parents who allow their kids on tv for monetary gain and instant fame and for their own personal gratification.

Also, funny isn't it that Kate is now admitting that they've been through "hell". So they weren't just playing? Now it starts...she's going to find someone to go after for pulling the plug.

Note to Kate:

Confusius says: before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves.

My sympathies said...

Jon, too, went through hell as I remember when TLC threatened him with their lawsuit, he was ridiculed in the press and attacked by Kate's fanatical fans. He is still vilified in the press (look at the most hated poll that just came out) and he was getting some horrible advice from some pretty disgusting people. He was strong enough, though, to seek out support and seemingly never lost faith in himself. Taylor's husband it looks like just had more stress piled on or less support. How very, very sad.

Doesn't even make me feel bad for her said...

Well Kate has about 10 more days at the current rate of attrition to reach Jon's 70,000 twitter followers. I still do not believe the legitimacy of the numbers (very, very many are obviously spam generators) but if it is the appearance she wants she is going to get it. Don't know how much it costs to get big clumps like that but she jumped from about 150 a day to over 3500 a day. She probably will start bragging just about the time she gets shut down by the Discovery police!!!

Kat said...

Is anybody buying this "I'm determined, I never give up" bullsh#t? she's just trying to save face. Oh...I give her just a day or two before the blame game starts. this woman never takes any responsibility for her failures.
Also, I love the way all the sheeple are feeling sorry for her because she lost her "job". Don't worry sheeple...she's got more money than all of her worshipers put together. If she was smart, she could probably live a comfortable life for a long time. Although that's a big "IF".

Kate and her sheeple are peas in a pod. Kate just tweeted that "Kevin was jealous" in her opinion. Good lord.

Can't wait until she really starts to get angry...And she WILL. Wonder who will be next? I guess Kate thinks it's o.k. now to dump or blame anyone in her way. Believe me..this will get ugly! Is this what happens right before a nervous breakdown??

Keep it to yourself. I am so damn sick & tired of you stupid Kate fans. All you guys do is say mean, nasty & hurtful things. You know NOTHING about any of us. You attack with your 2nd grade name-calling, just shut the hell up & go back to your own sad pathetic life. Obviously something is missing or you wouldn't be trolling around on different blog sites (the troll on my site has been there over 125 times since Aug. 3rd!) & causing trouble. I know you're oh-so-sad because your lame-ass queen got canceled, but get over it.

I got a huge giggle when I read that Kate is thinking of becoming a motivational speaker...

Motivate people? To do what exactly?

Squeezing money & products out of strangers? Selling her children's lives to become a pseudo-star? The art of persuasion by bullying people around you?

I know! Mind control ;o)

She's really something.

Pink, I'm pretty sure Kate thinks those twitter "followers" are her apostles. Scary.

Anonymous said...

I sincerely hope that she is not taking her anger out on the children. I know Jon has custody of them for two weekends a month. Is he "allowed" to speak to them by phone? I hope he is able to check in with them from time to time - AND THIS WOULD BE A GOOD TIME TO DO SO - they probably need someone to talk to.

Mel said...

Kinda funny....on Yahoo Jon is trending #1 right now.

Kate's name no where to be seen.

Mel said...

This thing about Jon supposedly cheating on Kate...

Just exactly how is cheating defined anyway?

Is is cheating if you both have agreed to break up and are just waiting to file? There's no chance of you getting back together?

(Which is what Jon says happened...that she told him she wanted a divorce, she was done with him. IMHO she's playing the victim, again, saying look! He cheated while we were still married! Technically true, but she's leaving out that she'd told him she was done with him.)

On the other hand, if the two of you are taking time to see where things are, then it would be cheating? If there's a chance you would get back together, then it's cheating.

In this case, it seems that there was absolutely NO chance of them getting back together, so is it still cheating?

In my mind, no. But I surely do wish he had been more discreet about it!

@ Hippie Chick -- AMEN!! You go, Girl!

Just Dwindle -- I adopted a soldier at Christmas time and a female soldier at Easter and had an absolute blast shopping for them. Bless you for donating your prize. A little tip - if you have a Dollar Tree anywhere near you - you can find a lot of the things on the lists (shampoos, hand soap, deodorant, etc.)there. Name brand, quality stuff, too Makes your dollars go further, so you can get more. Enjoy yourself.

I can't believe Kate is still twitting away. I hope the kids have someone they can talk to today, or cry to if they need it. Their mother obviously isn't available for them. She's blamed everyone else for the cancellation so far. Soon, she'll start in on the kids.

Jupiter said...

Re: cheating

If Jon's story is true then she told him it was over in October. He hired a marriage counselor and began seeing her. Kate admits there was a counselor and admits she didn't attend sessions. (a fact that has not been given enough airtime IMO)

He began dating Hailey (who I happen to think was the first dating) the following summer. Kate leaves out the fact that she asks for the divorce and Jon attempted counseling before leaving.

Mel said...

IMHO something major happened before Jon started dating outside the marriage. Something that hasn't come to light yet (and maybe never will.)

She always implies that it was something Jon did, something that she is keeping confidential to protect Jon's honor. Uh huh.

But I wonder if it wasn't actually something that she did. Or at least something that Jon thought she did.

And when he confronted her about it, she screamed in anger that she was done with him, and wanted a divorce. He suggested counseling; she wanted no part of that.

I bet it surprised the hell out of her when Jon finally said, fine with me, and didn't look back. He was done.

(It would have been so great if he could have handled all that in the classy manner we see now, but he didn't. Sigh.)

I always felt like Jon was in it for the long haul, and whatever happened had to be tremendously serious for him to change his position.

Kind of reminds me of abused people...there's always that one thing that is the last straw for them after years of abuse.

Whatever it was, Kate did it, and when she said let's divorce, Jon said ok.

She is a witch said...

Admin, I hope you get the chance to watch and recap the second half hour of Kate+8 from last night as it contained the most probing questions.

Kate drove the bus over Kevin, backed it up and did it again. In her opinion he can't be "trusted" (she is obviously referring to him telling some of the her and the show secrets) and the same with other family members, who have opinions that don't jibe with hers; in other words, because they didn't agree with her decision to exploit her children and they spoke up about it, she shut them out.

She went to great lengths to say she was "considering" making a decision about reintroducing the kids to family (she inferred this to be little more than answering the kids' curiosity about grandparents, etc and not really reestablishing quality relationships with them). It looked, to me anyway, that the separation from friends and family was solely her decision and she'd permit no one would tell her differently.

As with many of Kate's interviews, it's the words she doesn't use and her word emphasis and intonation that tells the real story. A producer asked about whether she and Jon would have still divorced and she said yes, that "other" reasons and problems would have developed and the eventual result would have been "divorce anyway". In other words -- the show was the cause for her split with Jon.

The show was full of clips from old shows and of course lots of yelling and shrieking from Kate. I think TLC made a conscious effort to paint Jon in a kind and tender light and Kate in quite the opposite. I didn't see any clips of Kate comforting the kids or doing anything but being domineering and dictatorial; probably because there were none to choose from, but there were plenty of Jon.

Kate's trying to tweet that the show's edit and the media has created something that she is not, but the proof of what she IS is on film and in her own words and it proves she is a lonely, bitter, vindictive, and hateful person who needs intervention, but will never receive it.

Mel said...

Cheating is when you go behind your partner's back....and according to Jon, she'd said go ahead. Date all you want; just be here to pretend you're married for the show.

Blows me away that she'd think she could keep that hidden for very long.

What if he'd been classy, kept it discreet, and eventually met someone, fell in love, and wanted to marry them? Then what?

And wouldn't the kids spill the beans eventually? Or the crew would have enough of the farce and tell somebody?

August 15: 1.325 million (0.5/ A18-49)

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

So, big deal. The news about the cancellation spiked the ratings only up to the level she got back on April 4th with the season premiere, and then again for the first three episodes in June - when there was a lot of press attention and a "media tour".

If Khate and her sheeple find that number impressive, they are even dumber than we thought.

Ratings in. No 10 million for Katie.

Wow...'haters' getting their own reality show before 'sheeple'?! LOL

From EW.com:
So we asked Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss if he would ever consider Gosselin for his show. Here’s what he said:

“Kate Gosselin? Sounds like a perfect fit for Bachelor Pad,” he wrote. “Or, H8R…”

...Or Fleiss’ upcoming CW reality show debuting Sept. 14 about anti-fans confronting celebrities they dislike.

He would have more luck with her on H8R, if only TLC will allow her to appear on that show thanks to her exclusive contract.

1. I wonder how many people attached to the show are going to start speaking up after the last episode airs.

2. Dwindle, if you ever did a webcomic I would read the hell out of it.

Surely, you are referring to your fellow Kate groupies after you read that they wish Jon would commit suicide like the RH husband did. Did you post it here by mistake? Your bad!! :D

There are no insane people here, just a group of people having a properly spelled and punctuated intelligent conversation. Wishing a man would commit suicide, leaving his 8 children under the age of 11 fatherless is insane, as well as sick & twisted.

Kate Gosselin on twitter: #losing!

Has Charlie Sheen taken up a new job as a very bad, female version of himself? This is like a z-list version of his infamous meltdowns - rants and ramblings included.

How did that work out for him, Kate?

What an idiot said...I've been reading Kate's twitter page and LOL at all of her RTs (retweets) especially recently where fans are complimenting her and telling her how much they'll miss the show. I have a very strong feeling she thinks these will get to TLC and they'll take notice, but as usual, there's one very MAJOR flaw with her plan. She's sending the RTs to herself; not once has she sent one to TLC (and neither have the fans.)

TLC's response:
@Kateplusmy8 please note tho: [We] will not get those messages! Please be sure that is posted on your [twitter]. Thanks!

Disclaimer: Not a real tweet from TLC. Sorry to hear Kate dissed you again, BabyMama.

Every single article out there today is negative, except for the HuffPost. All the comments are negative. If there was ever a question about how unpopular and reviled this woman is, there can be none after today. The fanatics can claim it is the non fans making the comments, but I don't recognize any names from any of the non fan sites nor do any of them write in the same style as the non fans. Soooooo, these are a lot of different people who post than those of us on the Gosselin blogs. I know it makes them all crazy, but they deserve it after the way they have behaved.

She is seriously hated everywhere.

Grammy of nine said...

Delusional, Kate, sees herself as the victim. She wants to be famous above all else and she will not give up without a fight. Cross her and you get dumped. Many, many examples of this beginning with her own family. Jon and the kids are the saddest part of Kate's story. Thank goodness Jon has some power through the court. After all, Kate, he is their father and I'm sure you don't have a problem accepting the child support money, do you?

wayward said...

@SuperPattyPie I'll nvr say it of course but truth b told,we've sufrd alot.My lips are sealed (4kids)unless discussing my feelings on subj!

@Truth_Teller201 Yeah. Acts like I aired ALL the garbage. Has no idea the hell the kids and I have been thru. Not worth my time or energy.

The ratings for Monday's show are a long way off from the 4 million + that tuned into the finale of Jon and Kate + 8.

The writing is on the wall, Kate. Your show could not have ended soon enough for the general public.

Is anyone else concerned about the photo of Heidi Klum's half-naked daughter in the left sidebar of that article? They censored Heidi's breasts but not her daughter's.

I assume they were on a European beach where it's acceptable to be topless, but that's just too creepy for a young girl (with a famous mother). Especially with paparazzi around.

Anonymous said...

My mother-in-law is a narcissist like Kate. Kate is actually a carbon copy and it's freaky at times because even their body language is the same as my MIL. One thing all narcissists do is point the finger and blame everyone else. It's classic narcissism. And when they do half-way acknowledge their role, it's always followed up with an excuse or justification for their actions so they never really own up to anything they have done. Kate has ALWAYS done this. When Jon would point out things (when they were married) she did that were ridiculous and rude, she would acknowledge it, but follow it with a "but....XYZ" - it was never entirely her fault.

The show being cancelled was just a natural progression of how these things go. It can't go on forever. But you can take it to the bank that she is blaming TLC for this. She already mentioned in a tweet that it was because they moved her to a later time slot that the show was cancelled. That's the other thing about narcissists - there is zero loyalty with them. They will turn on anyone on a dime. This includes their children. She now has zero use for them and she will only 'shed' them even further from her life. While on the one hand, the show being cancelled is a great thing, there's also going to be some dark days ahead for those kids. I have no doubt she verbally abuses those kids and plays mind games with them and I wouldn't be at all surprised if she was physically abusive toward them. My MIL was both to her children. Most narcissists are both mentally and physically abusive.

I am grateful this train wreck has finally ended, but I worry for those kids even more now. I seriously doubt she has a Plan B as narcissists are not forward thinkers. They suck whatever they can out of any given situation for as long as they can and then move on to their next supply of narcissism. I think she is in for a shock when she realizes her options are dried up. Narcissists are their own worst enemy and eventually are their own undoing. Kate has undone herself.

Nobody Likes a Narcissist said...

She's retweeting sheeple tweets that she should be on the next Bachelorette, and she asked sheeple for their thoughts on it. When that new stalker (the one that does teenage girl meetings) said she wasn't so sure, Khate said it depends on how you look at it....so, Khate is pimping herself for the Bachelorette show, anything to stay in the spotlight and earn easy cash. She's only retweeting it because she wants media to pick it up and write about it. She is still using the sheeple and they don't see it. Right now, the ONLY way that she can stay relevant is to tweet with her sheeple and hope something gets attention and picked up in an article.

Dallas Lady said...

I'm cracking up at Kate replying to the "haterz" after she swore up and down for months that she can't even SEE their tweets.

And yeah, she's unraveling.

fidosmommy said...

Nobody Likes a Narcissist,

Wow. Talk about taking the bull by the horns with your call to Discovery! They needed to know.

I wonder if Kate's warning to "follow all laws"
was enough of a cover for her. While she probably only meant "don't place your posters on private property without permission" she could also say the same law caveat applied to minors getting parental permission.

It will be interesting to see what Discovery does about that, if anything. Thanks.

The Stalkerish Sheeple said...

There are two sheeple stalkers, both of whom live near Kate, who would really concern me. One has been pestering Kate since the get-go, has a website, conducts workshops and mentors teenage girls:

@Kateplusmy8 Always wanted to ask... when u and Jon ann'ced divorce, do u remember security rec'ving a bouquet of flowers at ur gate?

Sorry your post got cut short, Anonymous. I'll
finish it for you.

You people are insanely joyous at the end of Kate Plus 8 and that 8 innocent children will be able to enjoy normal summers, weekends, wake up without cameras filming them eating breakfast.
They will not have the public privy to private moments of childhood troubles, nor will they
have their mother's issues broadcast for all to see.

Yes, insanely joyous.

fidosmommy said...

Looks like that Fleiss guy may have some small interest in Kate for one of his shows. What is
H8R? (Hater?)

No Money By The Pound said...

emeraldcityjazz
@katehatesthe8 @Allboysx4 @Kateplusmy8 Kate already admitted that the kids' money is all gone; there is nothing for college or their future

####

When did Kate admit this? She said that the money is gone and there is NOTHING for college? I thought Kate said that there was a substantial amount for college, and then later said it wasn't enough. Is this a recent admission - after the show has been canceled?

Teresa said...

If the kid's money has gone, my bet is she used it to pay for that private school. And Mady's braces

Starz22 said...

As much as I was happy to hear the show was cancelled...I wonder if TLC is going to give kate a year off...to make admins with her family and friends and the church.Give her a year to "find" herself and show people how she has changed.Then the show can start all over again with the NEW kate.
The kate who has found meaning,and puropse.The kate who has finally found the meaning of being a "mother".
Look at me! Watch me be what I could never be before!I have seen the light.Can she bring in new viewers?Will the haters watch to see the transformation?
As for having enough money?? She should.There is no reason in the world why she should have dipped into the kids money...thier whole 18%.The kids should not have to pay for anything...thier schooling...thier clothes...the food they were feed (well sorta...if you call 2 grapes and a cracker supper) kate was the parent she told everyone over and over and over agin...the ONLY one in charge of the kids....it was all on her.If the money is gone she has no one to blame but herself!
And yet the sheeple try and blame Jon? REALLY??? Kate had all the controll...kate was in charge (good thing cause the sheeple said Jon would waste all the money) REALLY? Where is the kids money?? Now kate might have to live like Jon...Frugle...no more trips and vacations...we KNOW kate wont pay for anything out of her pocket.
I really want this to be over for the kids sanity and privacy...BUT yet I wait for the spin....

It is a violation of federal law to use the internet for the purposes of obtaining names and addresses of minors without verifiable parental consent. The law does NOT provide an exception for "famous" people, nor does it care the reason for requesting and obtaining the names and addresses. This is one of the reasons why real contests and sweepstakes have a long list of rules and legal requirements, one of them being you must be 18 or older.

At the conclusion of our call, I was given a case number and asked to call back on August 30th for any follow up questions they might have.

###########

Good for you! There's a reason these laws exist, and people like Gosselin should not be allow to flagrantly violate them. No way should she have the names and addresses of minor children. Nor should any stranger!

Maybe if someone had called this woman on ANY of the garbage she's pulled all her life, 8 small children might have had a chance at a healthy, happy life.

Oh, wait. I forgot - those kids were CREATED to provide material things and "fame" for their mother.
