Kate Plus 8
RV Breakdown
TV-PG (L) (for language)
Sept. 5, 9 p.m. EST TLC

The Gosselins are halfway through their RV road trip and it has been a vacation like no other -- full of adventure and drama! But when the RVs experience mechanical issues, will Kate finally reach her boiling point? And later, someone decides to leave.

The guide on KHate's raft admitted that KHate is the type of person who tests your patience.......and so are some of the kids.

Why don't you just have Kate strip down, bend over, so you can kiss her butt, and get it over with once and for all?

Anonymous said...

I'm sorry, shes not the drama, as Steve said, whatevah ... If someone spoke to me the way she speaks to Jaime and Ashley I would have left the first day, she treats them like servants and quite rudely!

Smoochie

Kate could toot in her face and the sheeple would think it smells like roses. Blech.

Tamara said...

Teresa, this has been bugging me and I've just got to ask: what made you think Princes William and Harry didn't go to boarding school?

As for Kate's big surprise, could she legally move the kids out of Pennsylvania? I remember everyone was sooooo sure the family would be relocating to one of the Carolinas for their lax laws when it comes to filming and the warmer weather.

Desert Rat said...

Kate said she's freakazoided. Can't you see her on a talk show? I'm sure that the networks are just fighting to get her signed up!

Pants On Fire said...

Idiot frickin KHate. Making the travel destinations a secret, when she could have made this such a wonderfully educational trip for her children. They could have taken a few trips to the library ahead of time and researched their destinations. Right now they are at the Grand Canyon. KHate's got nothin as far as instruction concerning this wonder of creation. Grrrrrrrrrrrr.

Pants On Fire said...

Anybody notice when KHate slammed the RV door in Steve's face, she snottily said, "Good night."

Hmmmmmmmmmm.

How could they tell her bum from her face? Yes, very immature I know :)

Ugh! Repugnant.

Kate is a laxative on two big feet.


My house will always be-
Kate + 8 and TLC free....

Stop the Madness said...

OMG she just said the Grand Canyon was 10,000 miles long!

Pam said...

I am 100% convinced she is IN LOVE with Steve Neild.

he may not be with her ( although I do think he's screwed around with her ), but she is definitely in love with him.


She's such an asshat

Anonymous said...

She really can't take responsibility for anything can she. Everything is everyone else's fault, she does nothing wrong and can't understand why others get upset. Over 1 piece of pizza, seriously and now the truth comes out, paid help.

Smoochie

Sounds like a plan! I don't know when I've ever seen such an a$$ kisser:

mkbrownlow
@Kateplusmy8 @superpattypie Oh Kate!! Ganged up on is an understatement! It's not right. This makes me sick for you :( :(

Did Kate just say that she has been the one foraging for food? Now she's a hunter-gatherer?

Kate just said, "We don't go on posh trips." What was the trip to Hawaii? Slumming? She dismissed Ashley by saying that people leave her life and she just moves on. My jaw dropped. Literally.

I would not surprise me if, in the near future, this woman has a complete mental breakdown.

Pants On Fire said...

Hey KHate, How about taking the red SUV to the beauty parlor for a root-job. Your true colors are showing, in more way than one.

Paula said...

TLC is throwing Kate under the bus BIG-TIME!!

Administrator said...

People just leave her life and she moves on????
Ashley has been with these kids since they were at least toddlers. There hasn't ever been a nanny more stable.

She's not just "people."

Why can't Kate see that people don't leave--SHE DRIVES THEM AWAY! Why can't she see this?????

Paula said...

Notice Ashley told the kids I love you and "don't let anyone tell you different"?

Ashley has Kate's number.

Blogging experiences said...

Carried over from previous thread:
no mo worryin bout me said...

Jo said...
Sorry, Lake up North...I got a weird vibe when I read your posts. If you're not into sympathy then why would you talk about things that would normally be kept to yourself if you're not looking for attention on a blog like this? You keep comparing yourself to Kate. Again, sorry, put there is something up here.
Not buying it.
----------------------
Jo, I ask a question for you to reflect on. Did you post this comment because you know Lakes? Have you seen any home movies, audio, public videos, interviews so you have been able to personally see her works, so you can make an honest assessment of what your are accusing her of. It is our God given right to have a choice. Have you posted this because you really care about her life or is just to pay her back because you don't agree with her God give choice. I will not accuse you because because I don't know your heart. But YOU DO. You decide.

&&&&&&&

no mo worryin bout me and Lake up North; you are both new posters here at Realitytvkids and I'm guessing that you may also be fairly new to blogging about the Gosselins and are perhaps unfamiliar with the long history that goes with it.

I'm compassionate and sympathetic and hope this is taken only as it's intended - as background information to help explain some responses you may have read. I don't want to step on any toes and I hope this is taken in the spirit it's intended.

There was a Gosselin blogger years ago who shared an involved story of illness and hardship on a number of blogs and MANY people believed her and became personally involved in her saga. To make a very, very long story short, it was a hoax and many people were affected. Accusations flew, tempers flared, feelings were hurt, reputations were damaged and people have not forgotten.

I'm addressing this subject, no mo worryin bout me, as I did with you about the history that went with your initial user-name problem here, only to explain the possible reasons behind some reactions you've read. Although a natural reaction is of course to be compassionate; some people may be wary of stories of loss, illness, exceptional strength and courage because of past blogging experiences.

Hugs all around!

Now, back to the Gosselin RV discussion.

Administrator said...

Jamie's paid help, of course she is. What about Clay did he get paid to be thrown under the bus too?

That confirms it, there is no one, absolutely no one in her life who isn't paid to be there. And even those paid want OUT.

On a side note, why is it any of the sheeple's damn business who is getting paid? What right does Kate have to go on twitter and say people are paid, with the glaring implication see I did them a huge favor I paid them to be here and look how they acted!

Also last I checked, you don't pay your friends to spend time with you.

Pants On Fire said...

Hahahaha. Khate whined that "the adults in the other RV did not ask her how they could help her."

The witch is recycling that complaint from her Jon days.

Administrator said...

Paula said...

Notice Ashley told the kids I love you and "don't let anyone tell you different"?

Ashley has Kate's number.
***********************************
OMG. She knows full well that Kate would probably tell the kids Ashley left because she doesn't love us. OMG Ashley get out while you can.

Linda in Central PA said...

The red SUV was only while they were in Wyoming. It had a Wyoming license plate.

Pants On Fire said...

Paula said...

TLC is throwing Kate under the bus BIG-TIME!!

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
According to KHate's twittering, this show was edited specifically to provide dramatics.

MmmmmHmmmm.

On another note,,,,,,right now on the Toughest Questions rebroadcast, KHate is showing off her post-tummy tuck new hairdo & outfit.

She must not be wearing her good bra, cuz the girl ain't got any girls back then.

Vanessa said...

Notice the piles and piles of takeout containers??? "now ONE PERSON doesn't get to eat" WTF?
Ha! Ashley squealed on her! She was doing her HAIR and MAKEUP for the TWO hours the hired serfs were supposedly "not" doing anything to help her...instead they were all sitting on their behinds with their mouths gaping open, watching HD (she must have said it 10x)TV!

Lake Up North said...

Well, I guess with Kate's show over she can come out of the closet and admit her "bestest" friend forever of 9 years has been in fact paid. And I could not be more sad for her...almost. She has nobody to blame but herself.

To continue talking about old thread and the past issues we all seemed to have it's tacky to continue them in a different thread. The End.

So does this mean since Kate can now drive an RV for maybe...5 minutes she can learn to drive herself on the freeway, too? People who live in PA or NY might want to be cautious.

Cheers all! Enjoy the circling of the drain that is Kate Plus 8.

Pants On Fire said...

KHate tweets: yeah. Hard to watch and see that ppl don't understand due to editing etc

Kate Gosselin is a sick sick sick woman. I guess we shouldn't be surprised at that comment of hers, being she is the queen of narcissists.


I will never understand why God allowed that sick woman to breed 8 innocent little kids. I'm sure each kid has a purpose in life and are meant to be here, but through her? I will never understand. SO SO SO many other deserving women out there who would've appreciated and loved those kids so much more.


I have never condoned violence...until now. I so wish someone would kick her @$$. I really do. She deserves it.

I have to once again give a shout out to JON GOSSELIN. I don't know how on earth you endured this psychotic, abusive, self centered, bitch for ten years without killing her.

JudyK said...

To all and anyone who said there's nothing between Kate and Steve, I say HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA. And Jaime and Ashley are "paid help" per Kate. Yes, Ashley DOES have Kate's number and talked about being treated like dirt for five (5) years and said it was enough...not an exact quote. WOW...and it's so obvious TLC is just as sick of her as the "hired help" and anyone and everyone else who has had to deal w/ her on a daily basis is. And the lover's spat between Kate and Steve was priceless. I'll leave the rest up to you ADM.

Anonymous said...

FYI, I`m in Canada so my watching, will not add to the ratings, LOL we don`t count!

That episode was nothing but dramarama. Mady and Cara and Ashley didn't get to see the Grand Canyon, meltdowns over something so stupid, which of course Kate couldn`t deal with like an adult. Her resolution of problems is yell at the top of her lungs and point to the RV (in this case) and say go, you lose your privileges-right to see or do something.

I agree with those that said about teaching the children, doing research, library, internet, etc. She could have taught them so much, kept them busy with facts, etc.

Her organizational skills suck, shes not organized, she plays at organization. I still can't believe how she clearly cannot let go of anything, must be in tight control of everyone, what they eat, what they do, how and when. That`s what she means by organization!

She really cannot handle anything without dramatics, yet accuses Ashley of being over dramatic. Steve did not appear to be upset, he never said a word, it was all Kate. Good lord, she really does have control issues.

Preview for next week... best and worst of the series, look for lots of excuses from Kate for her bad behaviour and does not appear as though all is rosy between Kate, Ashley and Jaime. Of course, could just be the way they previewed it...

Don't Be Fooled said...

I hate to say this and I'll probably catch a rash of crap, but if you really, really read no mo worryin bout me's posts you'll find that she's been here before under various names and with various jobs. Read her posts carefully and you'll pick up on it also. You can change your name and lose your catch phrases but you can't change your style of writing.

tate said...

The only reason Kate tweeted thru this episode was an attempt at damage control. She KNOWS she is a horrible person and it was revealed in this episode, but she was trying to justify her behavior.

June said...

Kate acts like Steve is her husband and the way he looked down when she was yelling at him reminded me of how Jon looked when she did that to him.

PJ's momma said...

I watched too (no lectures please). It's so unbelievable it's almost surreal. Mady declares halfway through that her mom had a fit because xyz.....and some guy took a picture at the wrong time. A few minutes later, Kate points toward another RV and asks Steve if he took care of that picture. I busted out laughing when he said, "It's not going to be taken care of." You could see the rage on her face. For all who didn't watch, Kate is the only one throwing anyone under the bus. They were all pushed to the brink by HER. She is SO rude and demanding. She never says please to anyone but Steve. Never! It's all 'do this, go here, do that,' with her stupid pointing and head steering. She shields her children from NOTHING. (Think 'Michelle Duggar' if you think things cannot be accomplished without being so frontal.) Even the raft guide was almost openly mocking her and her stupidity and demands. I wanted to kiss that guy and send him his favorite beverage. They asked Steve if he'd travel with them again and he gave a snide answer. They asked a very helpful and adorable production guy if he was done and he made a stabbing motion toward his neck with a screwdriver. They talked to Ashley and Jamie and Ashley said she's been treated like that for FIVE YEARS. On the pizza thing, after all the histrionics, you hear Cara sob that she's sorry she ate it. Up to then, I had not considered the kids were observing all this. She melted down when one of the younger kids was wearing her underwear and Kate told her to get over it. (Ironically, Kate said, Oh yes, let's talk about our underwear on TV - this is the same woman who allowed a crew to tape all their private, naked moments.) Later, when Ashley left, Cara was sobbing after her that she loved her. Three sob sessions for one little girl whose whole school could watch. How humiliating. Those kids need help. They really, really do. I'm glad this is over for them, but they really need help. Oh, and Kate again declared everyone in her life leaves her (the 'mastermind' who does everything as she stated over and over and over). The crew asked Ashley on the way to the airport if it was the whole 5 years of being treated like that or this trip and she hemmed and hawed - which is better than I see Kate tweeted above, about how she has never seen Ashley overdramatic like that. She will never see the common denominator in every conflict, every meltdown, every disagreement is HER. She will be singing the 'everyone leaves me' song until she dies a lonely old woman because she is not going to be able to maintain any relationships as she is. And that is SAD.

a coincidence is not the same as an accident said...

lol, a sheeple tweeted that it's a shame they left all of the happy moments on the cutting room floor.
yeah, that's kate+8, one happy moment after another.

anger issue kate said...

There is no other phrase for Kate: Kate is an ANAL ASSHOLE. Kate could not control others, do her organizing, or have things her way. Even the RV(which she could not remember what it was called), did not like her. The film guys, were ready to run, purseboy was ready to run, the hired help was ready to run, as was most of the kids ready to run. The guy at the rafting thing was ready to dump her in the water, he even was glad when they were done. Kate ruins another funtime trip. The whole thing about the pizza, and Maddy dirty hands, what a contradiction. Earlier in the trip Cara, was not allowed to wash her hands, after using the bathroom, cause they were late to MT. Rushmore. Kate told Jamie/Ashley to bring 2 days, then tells the camera she did not say that. Ashley is young and has a lot yet to learn about life and people, she sure got a hard lessen from Kate. If as the sheeple/loyal Kate the God fans, will say that Jamie & Ashley were being disloyal, for talking behind Kate back. Well, Kate, as you have stated: This is a realist of reality shows. So what these women and kids felt, is realist of real. I like the talking back of everyone and purseboy not going after the person who took her pic. It seems all Kate was feeding those kids was organic chicken, Kate has to show the world she can cook organic chicken over a open flame. And did not Kate eat pizza before? now cause it's not organic she was not going to eat it? And all this BS about people leaving, Kate you make people want to leave, like I said above RUN! Kate threw everyone under the bus and they gave it right back at her. Kate is mad cause this was not the trip she wanted to go on. She wanted 5 star hotel, and police escort, and pampered. Wake up Kate this is all TLC was willing to shell out for you.

I hope Jon can keep Ashley in the kid's lives, and that Mady and Cara have her email address. A nanny's bond with their charge is incredibly important in that child's life. Especially if other adults, namely their parents, are either going through personal problems, or having emotional problems. If Ashley reads here, or someone whom knows her does, please tell her to hang in their for the kid's sakes. Trust me, it makes a difference, even if it you aren't there on a daily basis.

Flight of the Dodo said...

Nah, Australia, Bald Island, Hawaii, South Korea(oh, that's right, darn that divorce), no posh trips there. Motel Six can't leave the light on anymore because the Gosselins upgraded for gosh sake.

Grand Canyon - yes, such a waste of real estate, Kate. You keep on using those paper plates and I'm sure a waste management company will buy it for landfill purposes. What a moronic thing to say. And you denied your twins (and Ashley whom you say you love) a view of the Grand Canyon and a "memory" and educational opportunity why again? Gosh but you just ARE the mom with the best discipline techniques. Please write a book. Wait. Don't.

Kate, honeypie, the world gets it that ONLY you get to make money off your kids. You said it to Billy Bush. REAL celebrities get snapped every single day by the little people on the street, you know, just for their personal scrapbooks and don't freak out about it. The entire universe ain't the greed monger you are. Get over it. Your very presence in a place doesn't make you and/or your family a "photo" op. You are on a freakin' REALITY show - a cancelled one at that. If you have "security" issues, well baby, you got yourself in THAT mess.

My money on the "Big Surprise" will be Ashley (and maybe Jamie) appearing on the couch interview at the end of THE FINALE - kind of a Wizard of Oz ending - "..and YOU were there, and YOU were there, and..." Or an announcement, gag, that there'll be a Holiday special. Already underway (TLC is decorating the house with holly and mistletoe as we speak). That would get all the remaining idiot sheeple to wet their pants.

That's it for now. Going to read the latest Stephen King e-book. Something by a REAL author LOL

Conceited much? said...

I am still sitting here shaking my head. She is the most conceited person I think I have ever seen in all my lifetime (and ever will). I just couldn't believe the stuff coming out of that woman's mouth. I guess when you think you are perfect, that gives you license to tell everyone else how imperfect they are - and don't understand when they don't take it well. She makes me sick.

Oh, I absolutely LOVED the raft guide. He had a smart comeback for almost everything she said. Still gives me the giggles when I think of how he hammered away on her!!! Good man!!

NT said...

I agree with June. Steve does act just like Jon. Very passive when Kate is yelling at him. Sheez!!! What a B..ch!!!! You can't tell me that there is nothing going on between those two tho, and I'm sure Steve is very sorry now. And Yay!! for the boat driver or whatever he was. He did not take anything from Kate. I was hooping and hollaring when he talked back to Kate.

Pants On Fire said...

I liked when Jamie was making fun of how KHate rigidly controls the kids' snacks. Jamie bellowed, "And you only get ONE!"

And speaking of KHate controlling the kids' food, Mady informed us that KHate did not want the kids having pizza that night cuz pizza is (Mady makes quote marks in the air) "not healthy." Mady went ton to say that they already had a candy bar that day as well as one other "unhealthy" food item (I forget what).

Man alive. Way to set up your kids for eating disorders, you hateful anorexic witch.

Anne said...

I've said it before and I'll say it again......I think someone at TLC has served justice to Kate, on a golden plate.

It was obvious from the first RV episode (no, not watching, saw the clips) that Kate was obviously oblivious to the fact that TLC would not be planning any more "luxurious adventures". She had to have known in late Spring about the RV trip, but probably never imagined it would be this.....a real RV trip. Frankly, I believe most of us might jump at a chance for any all expense paid vacation regardless of the "adventure".

I agree with the above posters...Kate is no organizational expert - in fact Kate has never really organized anything...everything has always been planned start to finish. Kate is nothing more than a dictator-ish control freak. No one knows how to help her, no one does anything but her, no one but Kate wah wah wah!!!

I watched her twazz up feed for a little bit and boy, were there some harsh comments coming from persons I have never seen tweet.

Mom In Lancaster County said...

My sympathies are with admin for having to watch this. I couldn't sit through the whole thing. It was painful.

Kate didn't grow up with a silver spoon in her mouth. When did she become such a total self-entitled biotch?

wayward said...

Blogging experiences, your words were beautiful and well put. Amen.

@mariannabowden I told her I love her and didn't know she'd leave at all let alone then 4 minutes ago
********************************************
This has a familiar ring to it.

I don't watch but from what people are describing, it sounds like Ashley finally had enough of Kate's shit and loses it. IMHO, this isn't one isolated incident and Ashley blows up and goes home, Kate has probably been treating Ashley in a condescending and demeaning way for some time now. It's why Kate surrounds herself with paid help, because of her need to have authority and to give orders. Ashley has probably been putting up with it for the sake of the kids she loves, knowing there are no other long-term individuals in their lives. Most of the paid help just comes and goes at the Konpound.

When TLC approached Jodi and Kevin about being paid and Kate flipped out, Jodi's sister described how worried Jodi was about making Kate mad because she was afraid of being "cut out." She knew she and Kevin were the last voices left for the kids, and relatives at that. She tried to get word to Jon & Kate that they didn't want any money and wanted things to just go on they way they were, but it was too late. Their calls were never returned.

I think Ashley hung in there as long as she could and I give her credit for doing it for so long.

June said...

Kate says the show was edited to show all the drama. Even if there were times that there wasn't any drama, what happened was bad enough to ruin any of the supposed good times. They probably never knew when or what would set her off. Stressed or not stressed this is the way she's always been on the shows.

Pants On Fire said...

KHate's kinda getting the crap kicked out of her over on Twitter.

I call Liar, liar size 10 on fire.....

LOL Ashley was homesick???? She was wearing her Virginia sweatshirt so the cat is out of the bag, she went to college two states away, I'm sure she's a big girl who doesn't get homesick on a simple two week vacation.

PJ's momma said...

I watched too (no lectures please). It's so unbelievable it's almost surreal.

&&&&&&

I watched, too, but I probably shouldn't have because it was so upsetting. I haven't watched in years, and I wanted to see what all of the commotion was about. You're right, PJ, it was surreal. I haven't seen an adult behave like this toward other adults or her own children since...well, probably the Mommie Dearest movie.

"They asked Steve if he'd travel with them again and he gave a snide answer"

&&&&&&&

He said something like, "not with those," or "not with them."

What I found so disturbing was her arrogance over "everyone leaves me," and dismissing it by saying that she just moves on. Like it doesn't matter. Like it's the fault of everyone else and she had nothing to do with the fact that she's alienated everyone.

I had absolutely no idea that her mental illness was this bad, or that she was so far gone.

I don't care if she was stressed, or if TLC played up the dramatics. This was Kate. She was there. She behaved like this, and there is no excuse whatsoever for treating people like garbage.

I only hope that what goes around, comes around, and she gets her just dessert, and it's not fat-free.

Anonymous said...

One thing the cameraman did do, when Ashley really lost it and said she wanted to leave, he did cover the lens and point it down and you heard someone say, okay we can arrange it. They knew she was at the end of her rope.

Kate just does not get it, that the reason people keep leaving her life, is how she treats them. You would think by now, she might get an inkling, most people would sense the common denominator! Life is not perfect and there will be times when we all over-react nor get our own way, however, she just cannot see the forest for the trees. She treats people like dirt and expects them to take it and if they fight back it confuses her and she lashes out at them more. Was it wrong of them to discuss in front of the kids, probably, however, she clearly has no issues with discussing stuff in front of them either, soooo ...

What is sad about the whole pizza uproar, there were multiple and I mean multiple take out containers, it was not like anyone was going to starve anytime soon, it was all about control!

Smoochie

I watched and don't post often so would rather remain anonymous rather than suffer the wrath of people knowing I watched. After watching I saw a Children of 9-11 special on NBC. As tears were streaming down my face I couldn't help but get even angrier at a person who just has no concept that everything bad in her life is her own doing. Ugh, really bad idea to watch those 2 shows back to back trust me.

It's not editing said...

She said what she said. She did what she did. Just like she ALWAYS does. No amount of editing could make her look worse than she actually is. The words, the vicious looks, the attitude, the way she treats her children - she DID all of this...it was not created with special effects. Horrible beast.

JoyinVirginia said...

The Closer had a really good episode tonight! And just a coincidence - featured a family that was in search of fame and fortune via their young teen daughter, and Bad Things happened when they got to Hollywood.
I saw a couple of commercials for tonight's Kreider Krew Travelogue, and that was enough! I do look forward to the Admin's recap, always so funny. I have said this before: TLC is going to squeeze every last cent out of their property, as long as they have a contract with Ms. Kreider. TLC owns this footage in perpetuity. TLC knows how unpopular Ms. kreider is, and they are taking advantage of this by showing her worst moments. I predict that we will see a special sometime in the future: "worst Mothers Ever!" and first up will be Ms. Kreider! TLC already owns the film, they will not need to pay her anything else.

Friend In Pennsylvania said...

I have a feeling that, after calling Kate a bullying lesbian, that Big Fan won't be shopping or exercising with her any time too soon!!

hey jude said...

Doesn't sound like there were too many happy moments to leave on the cutting room floor!

Was Kate proud of this episode or just making excuses to justify her behavior? Didn't watch,just wondering what really went on.

Permanent Name said...

Warmth Of The Sun said... Oh, my gosh. I just turned on the show to see what's going down. Apparently the seat in the raft was hot, and the guide threw water on it to cool it off. She refused to sit on it and told him, "I really asked you NOT to wet it."
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I brought this over from the last thread because I am HOPING someone tells me

1) that the guide pointed his finger in her face and said "STFU and get in the raft bitch"

2) pushed off from shore without her, or

3) threw water on HER to "cool her off" - right in her ugly nasty leather face...

4) moved the raft while she was trying to get into it so she'd slip into the water...

Was she wearing heels?

Yeah, I know. That was mean of me............. sigh........ I'm just not feeling the love tonight, folks.

I watched my shows, the Closer and Rizzoli/Isles but took a moment to see the repeat of kart's questions. I am SO sorry I watched even 5 minutes. Seriously disgusting.

@Kateplusmy8 you have raised your kids in a warm, fun & loving environment and are a positive role model in their life. We are proud of U

000000000000000000000

Please explain how someone could watch this show and then have this come out of his/her mouth.
I don't get it. I just don't get it!

PatK said...

I laughed at the look on Kate's face when Steve told her he wasn't going to take care of that picture situation. Hahahaha!

Does Steve now feel this whole "bodyguarding" of Kate was worth losing his family over? Because I truly feel that's exactly what has happened.

If I was following the timeline correctly, it seems to me that Ashley left the day before the trip was to be over with anyway. And the preview for the final show does show her being interviewed.

I wonder if Kate will EVER stop blaming others for her own undoing.

Dallas Lady said...

Huh.

I see a pattern here! One that Kate apparently does NOT see!

Jon "didn't help" Kate. Or later, she softened it to "didn't know how to help" her. Kate "did EVERYTHING" and Jon "did NOTHING." Kate was the poor put-upon martyr just trying to keep everything ORGANIZED. He left her life (actually she left him when he didn't want to continue filming) and that was just fine by her, because he didn't know how to help her, anyway.

Sound familiar? On this episode, three other adults "didn't help her" while she "did everything" and "organized everything" (she's calling that the wrong thing, by the way--she's NOT super organized, she's super CONTROLLING). They left her (well, Jamie stayed rather reluctantly for the remaining two days of the trip, ditto Steve).

Gosh, they ALL leave her! Huh! I wonder if it could be HER??? But no, she blames her KIDS at the end of that episode, saying she'd never leave her life, because she wouldn't do that (to the kids).

After the kids have left her (and they will), she will have no one left to blame. She's the kind of person who is incapable of real reflection and apology, from which most of us GROW. She can't do that, because she's convinced everything is always everyone else's fault.

Did anyone catch her asking the producer if they were arranging these RV breakdowns on purpose? I think they weren't. I think they had bad luck with the RVs, and they know you do NOT have to orchestrate anything for Kate to be an asshole, that's just how she is. They DID know she'd be an asshole on this trip because she ALWAYS IS! No need to make anything worse when Kate's involved.

Ug. What a piece of work. TLC couldn't have paid me enough to put up with her.

Receipe For Disaster said...

Did Kate actually punish the twins by not letting them see the Grand Canyon? Were they banished to the RV?

fidosmommy said...

To whom was Steve referring when he said he would never travel with "them" again? The Gosselins? Ashley and Jamie? Jamie and her 3 children? The RV drivers? The crew?

It's pretty generic as it stands without any references.

Can anyone help?

I've been saying all along, I like Ashley. I think she has shown great constraint through most of these trips. But when one person is
completely unreasonable, it's hard to deal with no matter how old you are. I think this just wore her down to the point where she had to let off some steam. Jamie, being the party girl, would be the perfect one to vent to. Jamie would help Ashley find some humor in it, I think. Shared misery is half the misery, shared snark is twice the fun.

I bet her professors at college will allow her to write a psych paper on the last 5 years of her life.

hey jude said...

Just plain nuts,

I think Kate must have written that ,no one is really that stupid or blind , are they? .....

Never mind, I hope at least it was a 12 yr. old. They probably were awed by the Rock star bus and all the activities they got to do.

That was quite possibly the best part of the show. She was biting her lip, looking like she just wanted to kill him, but he didn't back down. I don't think that he puts up with too much of her crap. At least he didn't on this episode.

Dallas Lady said...

Recipe for Disaster, on twitter Kate claims that M&C saw the Grand Canyon later.

Somehow I'm just not buying it.

She did admit Ashley never got to see the Grand Canyon, so I tend to think M&C didn't, either.

If I recall correctly, when asked, Steve said, "You mean with THESE people?" Pause, then something like, "Not anytime soon."

Lake Up North said...

Ok this is for real now. My eyes are glazed over.. GN all! Xoxo thx for letting me be human....... ON TV!;)



Oh my god, seriously? Is Kate...crying? Just when I think this woman who needs so much help could sink no lower. This is mind-boggling. I've never heard of a twitter celeb who behaves like this. This is almost laughable in so many ways.

Kate will never change. Kate is Kate. She is so disillusioned I think even she believes she did no wrong that she is a nice, good, kind person and that TLC just never captured her in a good light so it's not her fault. Uh-huh. Sure.

She won't last long in reality TV if all she can do is swim in shallow water where people have to wait on her hand and foot about food, pictures. You know what I hear from reading what people have said, all I hear from Kate is, "Why didn't you help ME? I didn't get any help. When you help ME you need to do it fast. You need to listen to ME." I don't think I've ever watched someone who has been given the golden platter life she thinks she deserves only to constantly whine about it. Me, me, me. She sounds more like a spoiled child who didn't get what they wanted because nobody paid her attention. Like when you have a new baby and the previous youngest demands your attention because they feel replaced? This is all Kate has shown and complained about when attention is not the way she wants it. Good grief.

Ellie said...

Hey Kate!! You're right! This is the realist of reality shows out there. TLC is making sure we see the real you!

I was just wondering-How bad are your skid marks from finally being the one thrown under the bus? OUCH!!! Hurts don't it?

I sure hope you enjoy Oblivion, 'cause that's your final destination! I'm putting that on MY bucket list just for you!!!

wayward said...

@Kateplusmy8 Kate Gosselin @sallyohmally50 nope. Ur only seeing edited footage.
_________________________________________

First of all, if someone gave Kate $1 for every time she twatted the words "edit" or editing" today, she'd be able to fully fund those college accounts.

Second, how come the Duggars have never been "edited" in such a harsh manner? Or the Rolloffs?? Their sendoff was tender and sentimental. How come the "Table for 12" mom Betty was never shown being anything but a loving, caring, selfless, attentive mom? Their show was so devoid of material to "edit" they were cancelled. How about the little couple? TLC has never portrayed them being anything other than a loving young couple trying to start a family. TLC has never thrown their "talent" (heh heh) under the bus like this before. Just Kate.

Yet Kate actually wants her sheeples to believe this epi was the work of TLC editors and what really happened was she was up at five am cooking over an open flame twice a day, washing clothes on a rock down at the creek, organizing til her hands bled while trying to have fun 24/7! and Jamie and Ashley did nothing. The big blowup was just a "play fight" that took a turn for no reason. As Judge Judy says, don't piss on our legs and tell us it's raining.

I'm in Canada so my watching will not affect the "numbers". That is I started to watch but couldn't continue. THIS is what passes for entertainment these days? It was torture to listen to the yelling and everyone (well the adults) speaking over each other. What an example to these unfortunate children. Yes, unfortunate Kate. You are only kidding yourself that your children have not been damaged by your bad behaviour and will suffer the consequences of having their childhood deprived by your need for TV exposure.

I look forward to the re-cap and thank those of you who commented above - as for me, 15 minutes was my limit.

PJ's momma said...

fidosmommy, I believe Steve asked 'this family?' or 'these people?' or both when asked if he'd want to travel with them again and he said no, not anytime soon, ask him again in 6 months. The exchange was several questions/answers, as were the questions/answers with the production helper, Ashley, and Jamie. They were short conversations, not just one question/answer.

I just remembered, there was one part where a couple of the little girls were saying they wanted to go to the 'party bus' because their bus (with their mom) was boring. They said they didn't do anything except watch TV. Kate even suggested they all switch kids as she was stuck with the littler ones. At another point, she said she had them because they were the most defenseless. No kidding! So she wants them, she doesn't, she complains others aren't parenting them (she did nothing in the raft, just sat and complained while Steve and others swam with the little kids) - and she seems to forget that THEY ARE HER KIDS!!! It is HER job to take care of them, not Steve's, not Ashley's, not Jamie's - whether they are hired help or not. She is their freaking MOTHER!

Just Me said...

I don't watch (and didn't watch tonight), but based on her tweets tonight she is blaming editing. Forgetting the fact that you can't edit behavior that isn't shown in the first place, isn't this the same woman that spent the last 7 years telling us that her show was the "realist reality show out there" and that what you see is what you get they are just living their lives and the cameras are rolling?

So now she expects people to believe in the second to the last episode that suddenly TLC broke out the edit hammer and just went to town, madly editing her behavior to make it seem awful?

That "logic" may work on sheeple, but the vast majority of people it's going to fall short for.

All it's going to take is someone to put together a few quotes from over the years from her many interviews of her saying "the realist reality show" and then showing the clip of her losing her shit over a slice of pizza and she is done.

Dallas Lady....I love you! Your posts are too freaking funny!

Pam: you said it best "I have to once again give a shout out to JON GOSSELIN. I don't know how on earth you endured this psychotic, abusive, self centered, bitch for ten years without killing her."

What I saw tonight was unbearable. And if it was unbearable for me to watch for 1 hour, how unbearable must it have been for Jon to have lived 10 years and the kids their entire lives?!

She is deranged.

Let's Hear It For Mr. Raft Man said...

Kate said that she is the most organized person on the planet. Yup. We saw that when she wore spike heels in New York City and didn't think to throw flip-flops in her tote bag and she had to go barefoot. We saw that in Florida, when she didn't bring clean tee shirts. We saw that on the fishing boat when she made the kids lie in their own vomit because she didn't think far enough ahead to bring a change of clothing along.
Yes, sir...the most organized person on the planet!

The white water rapids - Kate said, "You haven't seen what Mady is capable of yet, or for that matter, me." He said, "I'm getting an idea." I love that guy! He gave it right back to her and took none of her crap.

"Eyes glazed over" is a common usage phrase meaning very tired or bored. Kate was still tweeting a half hour after she said she was going to bed. Apparently she's so addicted to the sheeple adulation that she doesn't mind losing sleep to feed her addiction.

Right on, Let's Hear it for Mr. Raft Man! Loved that dude! He had a comeback for every complaint she uttered. He didn't let her get away with anything and had NO sympathy.

Dallas Lady said...

Something just hit me: twice I heard Kate refer to the younger kids as "preschoolers."

What the hell?

Aren't they in first or second grade? Preschoolers haven't even done kindergarten. More proof (high chairs, sippy cups, etc.) she infantilizes her kids to keep them helpless and thus CONTROLLED by her more easily and for longer.

Gah, she's so sick in the head and everytime I realize another bit of sickness in her, it turns my stomach.

Kate, we know you read here: GET PROFESSIONAL COUNSELING AND LISTEN TO WHAT THEY SAY. Pronto.

For What It's Worth... said...

I believe Steve asked 'this family?' or 'these people?' or both when asked if he'd want to travel with them again and he said no, not anytime soon, ask him again in 6 months.

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

Steve said, "With these people? It's been pretty challenging and I wouldn't want to do it again in a hurry," and then something about asking him again.

Did you ever notice Kate's inflection in the last word of every sentence? It kind of comes off as a question, with a rise in pitch, and not like a statement. It's annoying.

Mimi to 3 said...

Mr. Raft man was great! He told the kids how to hold on to the rope and pee in the river if necessary. Kate had a total meltdown and said no peeing which the guy politely ignored her and had the kids pee in the river. So hilarious. And then Kate says I'm not getting in that water. It's a friggin' river KAte, there are far worse things in there than pee, you idiot. She wanted to sit down on a boat that was hot and then she wouldn't let him wet the seats to cool them off because she didn't want to get wet. Well then Ms. rocket scientist, what the hell are you doing in a raft going white water rafting???? Geesh. She was nastier tonight than i have ever seen and it was not because of editing. Every scene was her screaming lists of orders to everyone and expecting them to skip to.

What an utter b*tch. Worse than ever.

Dallas Lady said...

Mimi to 3, makes you wonder if she even realizes that fish pee in the river. A river is running water, so a little urine isn't any big deal. Of course, she doesn't know that because she's so ignorant. This is the same woman who said the Grand Canyon was 10,000 miles long and a "waste of land."

As someone who has been to the GC and loved it, it is NOT a waste of land, it is a national park, and a wonder and beauty. Only someone as shallow as Kate could fail to see that.

Susantoyota said...

I hope they include clips of Brad? from the Skywalk and Mr. Raft Man in the retrospective next week. Now those are some good memories!!

thankyoufairy said...

During this episode, I was reminded of our family vacation to the Grand Canyon. We packed the entire family in a sedan and pulled a pop-up camper. On day one we realized that the extra weight meant we couldn't run the air conditioning, too, so we rolled down the windows. This was in the summer...we cooked all our meals on a Coleman stove, played board and card games every night by lantern, showered in bathhouses at campgrounds, washed clothes on the way at coin laundries and even used a pit toilet and pumped our own water at a primative campground near the Grand Canyon. It wasn't exactly comfortable and we didn't have the luxury of a "mastermind" to organize everything for us, but we have a lot of great memories.

I couldn't believe the rafting trip. It was being oppositional for the sake of being difficult. Who goes on a whitewater rafting trip with the expectaiton htat they will stay dry?

We go on canoe trips where they bus everyone to the entry point and you spend the day going downstream. On one trip, a lady was having a difficult time getting the hang of paddling and her canoe must have tipped four or five times before they made it past the first sandbar. It would have been very easy for her to quit and ride the bus back to their car, but her child was excited about the trip. She just kept getting back in the canoe to give it another try. Kate could have learned a lesson from her.

RE: urinating in the river. Kate probably has to envision that she is sitting in a deck chair by the pool of a luxurious hotel in order to make it through this trip. No "going" in the pool, kids. And wash your hands.

RE: Mr. Raft Man and Brad the SkyJump Guy. I hope they are joined by Charles Heath, the father of Sarah Palin.

RE: Pizza Gate. Can't remember where I read it - it could have been here - that Kate didn't want the kids eating pizza because it was not
"healthy" food. So, if that is true, this has nothing to do with Steve wanting the pizza, it was that Kate did not want the kids to have it,
and dragged Steve's name into the argument.

Before she could do any of that, she had to go out into the brush with a bow and arrow and kill the wild turkeys. Didn't she say that she was foraging for food? And, of course, she had to discover fire and the wheel.

If Ashley and Jamie had not been there, Kate would have been out in that brush foraging for her kids.
Nobody else seemed to be paying much attention to them.

In all of my 50 years, and from all the different places I have lived, and all the people I have ever known, no one was EVER like kate. She is a sorry excuse for a human being, never mind as a mother,or friend. I cried as I watched Ashley say good-bye to those kids, all of those kids were crying.I have not watched this show for many years, so am not used to seeing the kids react,but I really feel that if kate was leaving and saying good-bye to the kids, they would not be crying like they did for Ashley. kate, you are the world's biggest loser, hands down. She really disgusts me.

I would love to see a video retrospective of all the people who have stood up to her thru the years posted on youtube for posterity. I haven't caught every episode thru the years, but I think it could start with Jon telling her to stop treating him like a dog in the Toys-R-Us parking lot, then short clips of the Kevin and Jodi testifying re: their concerns for the kids, Sarah Palin's dad and husband (just bemused looks could be included), Brad the Skywalk Guy, Jamie, Ashley, Mr. Raft Guy, the TLC crew, Steve,etc.

I can't remember--who told her to take the stick out and when? Was that Jon shortly before the divorce?

Zoe said...

From watching the twazzup feed I noticed how many sheeple kept mentioning that Jamie and Ashley were wrong to talk negatively about Kate in front of the kids.

Why don't the sheeple think about how wrong it is for Kate to scream at the other adults in front of the kids?

And what about all the times Kate yelled at and put down their father in front of them?

Permanent Name said...

Wasn't JOn's comment (take the stick out) made at the other house before the mine-all-mine mansion, on the driveway while they were hanging around with the kids playing, Jon working and kart's lazy ass was parked on her white plastic throne/lawn chair?

Could be wrong, but that's what is coming to me now. I can't remember her reaction to his comment.

soozbc said...

Pretty sure the "take the stick out" comment was Jon aaying it to her in the living room of their Andrews ave house. They were getting the kids dressed and she was bitching about something Jon didn't do to her liking. you know...the usual.

Zoe said...

And even though Jon made the "take the stick out" camera, he also apologized to her almost immediately.

squattmunkieRN said...

How can someone have ZERO self awareness? Does she really not understand how she's acting? Does Kate really believe that everyone's who left...that it's really them and not her?

There are so many things to talk about in the episode. I don't really know where to begin. I'll leave it to Admin to recap. But. Wow. Kate needs help. I'm scared for those kids...the cameras are gone now. There are no more witnesses to the craziness that those kids must endure. Scary.

gingerbread said...

Saw the show with regret. Those poor kids, can't believe they had to endure adults behaving badly, but I do have to say when Ashley was saying goodbye to the kids it was truly heartbreaking to see the look in those kids faces. Those feelings were real,I'm sorry I watched it.
I thought I read on the other tread, that Dr. Lillian Glass said something about Katen kreiders body language. That she is happy.Can someone answer this question, if her shows are being aired over in Europe, not sure if she is global, wouldn't she be getting compensated for them being aired? If so , why cry poverty? Why grift off the sheeple? She is so sick on many levels, hope she gets help asap.

2exhausted2name said...

All this time we've been mocking Kate for her lack of organization. Turns out the joke is on us! She IS excellent at organization because in her mind organization = complete and total control over everyone and anything around here. It has nothing to do with putting things away in the right spot. It's control!

And when someone isn't organized it means Kate has no control over them. "They don't know how to help" means "They're not following my orders" or "They didn't read my mind fast enough and I had to exert energy by yelling at them to do my bidding".

There was one part there at the end I find very telling. Kate stated "at some point everyone leaves, but I have to stay, I can't leave". Well, duh. It's you they're running from.

There's a saying that if you have a disagreement with someone you are equally at fault. However if everyone has a problem with you it's not them, it's you. Wake up Kate, it's YOU! All those times you were pointing your finger at other people, your three other fingers were pointing directly back at you. Take a hint.

BTW I loved when Steve refused to chase down that "horrible guy" who dared take a photo and they zoomed in on Kate trying not to cry. Over some random stranger taking a photo in a public area at the Grand Canyon. The horror!

fidosmommy said...

The "when are you going to get the stick out" comment was the first time I yelled "Yeah Jon!"
at my TV. Kate had no idea how to respond, which I thought was hysterical. I think she even asked him to repeat it, which was funnier still. She just told him it was disgusting or something. He did apologize, looking very sorry he had stirred that pot. And yes, it was in the E-town house living room while the kids were being dressed.

fidosmommy said...

I don't think Kate (nor Jon, for that matter)
receives any residuals from the show. TLC owns the rights to the DVD's, reruns, sales to any syndicate, sales to any other place. No royalties for anybody but TLC. So sorry, Kate. You signed the contract.

Was it me or did Kate imply that people leave her because of her kids? At the end, she said people always leave her but she can't leave she'd never do that (to the kids).

Kate, people stay as long as they do because of their love for the kids and it is finally you not the kids who drive them away.

Oh and by the way? $100 worth of chicken marinated in BBQ sauce for 24 hrs will actually taste better then if you'd cooked it that night.

I didn't watch the show. I just can't stand to see her anymore. I have ready plenty on the Internet.

Someone mentioned that Kate always claimed that the show was real, and that they were just filming their lives. She did this so no one would think these kids are working.

But now it's editing. She has to say that to cover her butt. So which is it? The realest real or editing?

Re: Steve being asked if he'd take a trip with these people (probably meaning Kate, Jaime and Ashley) again and he said not for a while ask him in 6 months - Does that mean TLC is filming a "special" in December/January?

As for their "relationship" - does anyone think that Steve may just be staying a) for the paycheck but b) for the kids? Maybe he figures if he can keep Kate calm it's better for the kids? There were a number of times he dismissed her ("Can we get a new RV?" Steve: "Don't ask me." and the wonderful picture comment to name a few). I think Steve is looking forward to getting away from Kate, frankly. I really got that sense.

As for Ashley - I think Jaime being there gave Ashley the support she needed to say "I'm done. I deserve better." Sometimes having someone there gives you confirmation that it doesn't matter if Kate is stressed, she does not have the right to treat people the way she does.

And even if Beth had spoken out it wouldn't have done any good because people still liked Kate back then and believed her press.

Out on a Limb said...

So there's supposed to be a "big surprise" next week?

Anyone remember a few months ago when Blind Gossip had an item saying "two reality show stars, one married, one not, want to come out of the closet, and the network is scrambling to figure out how to handle it"?

I got a stab of fear when reading "big surprise" and that Steve will be included in next week's episode...

After all...TLC only said there wouldn't be any more episodes of Kate + 8, not that they were done with her entirely. I admit this is wild speculation but what if next week's big surprise is an announcement of a new show featuring Kate & Steve?

2exhausted2name said...

While I believe ratings contributed to the show's demise, after this trip I think it was cancelled because they couldn't pay anyone enough to be anywhere near Kate. I know that my self-respect and sanity is worth more than TLC can pay.

I've never believed Steve & Kate were an item but these last two episodes really made it clear why Steve has this job. He is a handler - the buffer between Kate & everyone else. In her eyes he's her hero and go-to guy. To the crew he's the only one who can shut Kate up and talk her into doing things. Like when Kate was yelling at Jamie about luggage he was able to not only shut her up but get her off the bus so he & Jamie could discuss the situation like adults. Or after Kate freaked out over getting pizza he was able to talk to her privately and, voila, they got pizza. He's a Kate whisperer (and no, not in *that* way).


fidosmommy said... "RE: Pizza Gate. Can't remember where I read it - it could have been here - that Kate didn't want the kids eating pizza because it was not "healthy" food. So, if that is true, this has nothing to do with Steve wanting the pizza, it was that Kate did not want the kids to have it, and dragged Steve's name into the argument."

I think it had nothing to do with either. Steve was her excuse but in reality she was melting down because she had lost control over the food. She wasn't the one to decide when, where or who got to eat what.

hey jude said...

Moose mania,

Kate wasn't much of a hunter or forager ,was she? Soon as she found out people peed in the river, she ordered them to bring her an Rv with a washer and dryer in it.

She wasn't much of a cook, either, cause there she was, standing there in the gravel-ish rocks in her flip- flops, ordering take- out! Does this entitled bitch not remember when they had no money and had to beg for paper towels?

She said she liked the organization part of the trip the best, which was the worst ever, for someone who is supposed to be so organized. The last fight was over one of the tups wearing Cara's underwear cause Kate didn't even bring enough clothes!

Tlc was paying for the trip, Jamie and Ashley were there to look after the kids, Steve was there for ????? So, what was Kate 's job? She can't even count underwear! 14 days x 8 kids. Duh....or wash some dang clothes at the camp-site/ hotel you stayed in.

Mady and Cara and Ashley had to sit in the bus and not see the Grand Canyon because Kate didn't bring enough clothes. Well, let's brag about how organized you are.....She makes me so mad, I could just spit!

watchdog said...

I can't believe no one has mentioned K8's latest mangling of the English language... "waterish." She told whomever was listening during the rafting trip that she's not a "waterish" person.

Did anyone notice that while Steve jumped off the raft into the water and Ashley (or was it Jamie?) and the kids followed that K8 remained glued firmly to her seat with Hannah, the golden child, ensconced firmly next to her?

2exhausted2name said...While I believe ratings contributed to the show's demise, after this trip I think it was cancelled because they couldn't pay anyone enough to be anywhere near Kate.

Not sorry I missed the action tonight, although it sounds like it could have been a great drunken night - a shot for every time Kate used the word 'edit'. Enjoyed a couple of relaxing hours at Disneyland with the family instead.

Anyway...someone upthread also mentioned that the film guys wanted to run, including Steve. With your comment, this sudden cancellation on TLC's part is starting to make more sense. You can't have a show without a crew. Did they quit on Kate too? LOL...working with Kate in the future should require hazard pay. Wow, that series finale filming must have been awkward!

Admin made a good point that even though karma finally came to Kate, how can anyone really celebrate when it's the innocent bystanders, the Gosselins kids, that will be most affected by all this? Jimmy Kimmel even used their bad moments for laughs, which was very poor judgment on their part. Minors should be completely off-limits to comedians and late-night host.

In all my years in Psych. nursing, I ran across some wacky behavior and some not nice things happened occasionally.

One little old man used to pee in the big toilet(floor) since he couldn't find his bathroom. I used to walk in his room at night and get a faceful of wet sock that he strung up on the light cord to dry!

He was a lovable, sweet little old man who did things, without intending to hurt anyone. I can't find anything lovable about Kate and her intentions are to hurt people. I fear for those kids when the cameras go away..................

mama mia said...

So Kate, where are all those behind the scenes tweets you promised would shed some light on why everybody leaves you and why your children are diminished to sobbing wretches in the company of you?
It should be against the law to abuse children in the manner your children are abused for entertainment purposes. Your daughter, Mady, is forever known as the adjective to describe hateful bitch you. Cara is forever known as the chubby kid who ate the slice of pizza that sent Ashley packing, all thanks to you.
Even the rafting scene where you claim you are there to watch over your defenseless little kids, not once did TLC show you seated near any of the children to be in position to grab them should they fall overboard.
Kate, you are a monster, and that is why everybody quits you. Your children need a new mother pronto and they years of therapy to get over the abuses you layered on them. This show can't end fast enough.

Mel said...

How can someone have ZERO self awareness? Does she really not understand how she's acting? Does Kate really believe that everyone's who left...that it's really them and not her?

Risking tedious over-sharing of personal details here.

I was married to a male "Kate" for 40 years. He truly has NO idea why finally I walked away.

"No never means no"....so him. As in, NO! You don't get to treat me like that.

It didn't matter that I said NO! because whatever I thought/felt was completely irrelevant to him. Took me 40 years to figure that one out.

I'm glad Jon was able to get out when he did, and didn't waste his whole life trying to connect with someone who was impossible to connect with.

Mel said...

I stayed up late and watched the repeat....

Did y'all notice the look on Clay's face when she was in the front of the bus screaming about something?

It struck me that it was the same look that was on the face of the little Palin girl when Kate was melting down about something.

That 11 year old look of wondrous WTF????? Are you for real lady????? Cuz I ain't never seen anything like this.

Bluenoser said...

Pants On Fire said...
"A huge, missing chunk of earth creavassy thing" was supermom KHate's tutorial to her kids on the Grand Canyon.

Well just when one thinks Kate cannot get any stupider she shows us! She really does take stupid to an entirely new level.

I didn't watch; didn't have the heart to see those children being abused by mom-ster once again.

Gimme said...

The way I took it Khate was angry because Jamie and Ashley were being paid not to babysit and help her, but a substantial amt for their participation in the show. They were featured not behind the scenes trying to pretend like they were not there. That would have set her off to the point that neither of them could have done anything right. She has made it clear all through the years that she does not like to share the wealth. TLC set all this up. The final scene was the kids hyperventilating in a little huddle with only themselves for comfort. Khate says she was not there because she didn't know Ashley was leaving, when they announced on the show that she was told in a private meeting. She was probably getting her hair and makeup done for that final scene and they pulled the rug out. What a sad situation for the kids. What a horrible ending for a show that was once a great show about a mom and dad taking care of 2 sets of multiples reduced to a screaming banshee trying to control everyone and everything without the skills to do so. I am not going to watch the finale - more tears - I have seen those kids cry more tears than most would ever shed in a lifetime.

Gimme said...

Oh and the icing on the cake - she looked to be 40 if a day. Yeah I dislike her that much.

Jenna Does said...

After only reading 30-40 comments, this show sounded awful! I can't believe Kate would treat her family, her friends, Ashley, poor Ashley, someone who has been taking care of her children for how many years now? That way, & blame EVERYONE else that it's not HER fault. Everyone leaves Kate. No Kate. Who is ALWAYS the common denominator?

That old damn tired line: Everyone leaves me. Please. Been there, done that. I may just have to break my rule & watch a few clips. Not the whole show, but just a few clips. (I'm glad TLC is finally showing the real Kate however) But I don't know if I can stand to watch a real life mother treat her real life children that way.

If the sheeple will realize; These kids are not actors. They are real kids with real issues, that they will probably have to face for the rest of their lives, because of this show, & because of their mom. Oh, but because they gave YOU such entertainment, it's OK right? no.

"They've got it on camera that you scoffed at me!"-after her little lover's spat in the rv with Ratclaws.

"There are 2 adults in there, between the 2 of them, they can't tell the kids they are NOT allowed in the fridge!"-can you imagine growing up in a home where you can't go to the fridge and get something when you're hungry?

"people leave me all the time, I can't leave, I can't do that to the kids"-here's a thought...maybe you SHOULD!

Did that rogue pic of khate that she needed ratclaws to destroy ever make it to press??? hmmm I don't think so... Maybe she wanted $10 cash from the poor fool. aha! THAT's what she was soooo upset about. I especailly like how she bites her tongue with her lovah! Looked like she wanted scratch his eyes out, but still managed to clam up, not a peep!

How is someone so capable of all those disgusted, evil mean looks? She is truly hateful AND hated! Yes, people HATE you kHATE.

Maggie said...

Unbelievable! Kate deleted all of her tweets during and after her show about the editing, Jamie, Ashley, etc. It only shows her tweets from 8 hours ago. That would be about 11pm or midnight her time (eastern). She deleted all her ugly comments and then first thing this morning she tweeted this:

Kateplusmy8Kate Gosselin

RT @mumbear9 If it causes damage to another's heart mind soul and being, it does not belong on TWITTER OMG COULDNT SAY BETTER MYSELF!THANKU!
____________

What a freaking hypocrite! Last night Kate tweeted hours of negative tweets about TLC and how it was THEIR fault for the editing, and she bashed her babysitter of 5 years and her best friend of 9 years saying how wrong THEY were during the RV trip. And then she deleted the negative tweets like she never wrote them and then has the gall to retweet the above first thing this morning.

Flora said...

The thing that pissed me off the most about this episode was how Khate kept whining about being "stuck with the preschoolers." I honestly cannot believe she doesn't know what grade her own children are in. I know she doesn't spend much time with them but...sheesh! You'd think she'd at least know something as basic as the fact that they are no longer in preschool. They are 7 years old for God's sake! I wish one of the 'tups would have called her out on that, but they were probably too afraid of her.

Jupiter said...

When Ashley was leaving, it was clear that the kids were in pain. Broken hearts. Kate, instead of being concerned about her children, was inside an RV defending herself and assuring the world that she was the victim. The kids were comforting each other.

The crew was front and center for this drama and they didn't seem to shoot (or edit) in favor of Kate.

Bluenoser said...

OMG from that psycho's tweets she is saying she has a seating plan for the bus. I can only presume school bus because she mentioned she still has it in her shorts (after delivering the kids to the bus). She is a total, complete 1000% control freak. Can you imagine trying to control where your children sit on a bus with other children. I'm sure the bus driver tells her that the seating plan works all the while ignoring that nut job completely. Poor bus driver, his/her eyes are likely permanently stuck back in his/her head from all the eye rolls. Remember when mother used to say "if you keep making that face it will stick" lol.

She's such a c word said...

Maggie, the tweets should show up eventually. Did take a while, but they popped back on there. In all honesty, (ha ha) would she really delete her damage control & blaming her breakdowns to others and editing? Nor would she delete all of the ass-kissing (though there was a lot of backlash interspersed)from her Tweeties.

Mandy said...

My daughter and I watched together, and we were also completely disgusted that the tups were referred to as pre-schoolers. Seven-year-olds are quite old enough to be totally embarrassed by a comment like that. Can you imagine their school buddies teasing them about this?

Kate, your self-absorption is as apparent as a giant, blistering, cystic zit in the middle of your face. For heaven's sake, for once, just look in the mirror and pop the damn thing. I shake my head in disbelief at your complete lack of self-awareness...

"Everyone leaves me." They sure do. You drive them away. It's not your kids. They are adorable. It's you. No one else...

Oh yeah... The Grand Canyon is wasted land? Way to slap God in the face again, Kate....

Compensation said...

gingerbread said...

Saw the show with regret. Those poor kids, can't believe they had to endure adults behaving badly, but I do have to say when Ashley was saying goodbye to the kids it was truly heartbreaking to see the look in those kids faces. Those feelings were real,I'm sorry I watched it.
Can someone answer this question, if her shows are being aired over in Europe, not sure if she is global, wouldn't she be getting compensated for them being aired? If so , why cry poverty? Why grift off the sheeple? She is so sick on many levels, hope she gets help asap.

*********

Kate is not paid by the number of times her shows air or where; she's paid per episode, ie: for each episode she was paid $250,000 and that's it. Once she's been paid she doesn't earn any more if they're being aired in another country; TLC can do whatever they want with the episodes.

VANESSA said: "There are 2 adults in there, between the 2 of them, they can't tell the kids they are NOT allowed in the fridge!"-can you imagine growing up in a home where you can't go to the fridge and get something when you're hungry?

Yes, I can. Nobody at our house was ever allowed to open the fridge and take food without ASKING FIRST. We always had to ask, and we never were told "no".
Kate would probably tell her kids no, because she needs to have tight control over when and what they eat. Like serving the tups half a banana, like she did when they were 3 and she's still doing it. Is she afraid they'll grow too much if they eat more? Um, Kate, they already HAVE grown too much to be "cute babies" or, as you called them in this episode, "preschoolers".

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

Those looks said a lot. Ashley was their last buffer from their disgusting mother, and they knew it.. Way too much of a burden for a 22-year-old girl to bear. She had to do it, but it just makes the kids' situation all the more heartbreaking.

Cry Me a River said...

The thing that was missing from this show - I read once that to stand in awe of the grand canyon is a life-changing experience. It is there that you realize the magnificence of Mother earth and that you are but a tiny speck in a picture that is much larger than you had imagined. I saw none of that. She was more into watching the other people. They came, they looked, they left. And I never did figure out why the twins and Ashley were banished to the RV during a once in a lifetime chance to see the Grand Canyon. Even if they got to go later, they should have had the first look together, as a family. It seems as though every trip she looks for something to banish the children (particularly the twins or Al) to the bus with Ashley for no reason. Which prior to this episode I always thought was code for punishment of severeness but I don't think Ashley would have done it she told her to. Glad to know during all these times that Ashley has not been a door mat for her. Yes, I'm upset at how what was once my favorite show ended. I despise that woman. I wish I had my time back. The vision of those children standing there in complete and total anguish and desolation will haunt me forever.

TLC stinks said...

Recorded the repeat at midnight. OMG! She is absolutely psycho. Those poor kids. I take back every bad thing I ever said about Jon.

And I've been such a flip-flopper on the Kate/Steve relationship. Last time I posted I was convinced that perhaps they had a fling in the beginning and that's why she dumped Jon but whatever happened she is crazy obsessed over him. This show is 100% proof that she is in love with the guy. Not so sure about him, but it did appear he was staying in her RV.

I agree Ashley was going to leave anyway to go back to school, but I do believe her emotion was genuine. My guess is the script called for tension and they got exactly that because they know that Kate Gosselin is UNSTABLE.

jessch said...

Steve doesn't eat mac & cheese nor salads lol .. Thanks Kate for clarifying that. So I guess since you are so aware of what Steve does eat, the kids (and their paid babysitters) should know as well?

Lol @ Steve "nothing is going to be done about it" Did she seriously think Steve was gonna chase some person down who took a picture of her after the attitude she gives non stop. She is so full of herself it is sad.

I truly wonder what happened to Kate in her life in order for her to turn out like this .. You can just see the mental breakdown coming when her so called fame is finally over.

We'll see negative publicity about these children for sure in the years to come. Let's face it, who has their kindergardeners expelled from an expensive private school?! Little kids little problems, big kids big problems.

TLC stinks said...

This was interesting. Ashley and Jamie said they had ALL the kids in their RV for a couple of hours while Kate showered and put on her makeup. Hmmm. Where was Steve?

mama mia said...

This final episode was Kate's hate letter to her children. This is how much I hate you, this is how much I resent you, these are the narrow parameters I impose to ensure you always fail me. When they were toddlers, the set up was Kate would just freak out over they not being able to keep their hands faces, bums and outfits clean. Easy, assign one outfit for the day and then freak out at every turn. They are toddlers, we do not expect our babies to be able to live without stains and messes and spills. But Kate does, and that is what makes her evil. Putting this on tv for entertainment is evil. These are children, not actors, and their development is so badly hindered by this woman. They hand wash constantly, they are anxious about their clothing and keeping it clean, they have anxiety over germs and dirt, they avoid and sit out and pass up life just to keep their mother happy. How sad is that? Give the child a toy and Kate will rush in telling them how that toy will be taken away if they do x, y, or z. Or she'll rage against the toy until they give it up seemingly willingly. Ditto with pets.Dads. Grandparents. Cousins. Friends. These children are so bogged down by the mental illness of Kate they have no hope. I watched last night so I could see for myself how impossible it is to change the minds of sheeple like people. Kate could cull the entire western civilization with poisoned koolaid and they'd put her on a pedestal for having made the koolaid.

Dallas Lady said...

Whoever said the food was about losing control was RIGHT. Watch her face change completely when Jamie says "we have pizza and fries...." She goes from smiling and laughing to "WHAT THE HELL, THEY'RE EATING????" in a second.

Then she's over there like a flash demanding the food "for Steve." Steve didn't seem like he gave a shit about the pizza.

It's all about control. See: seating chart for kids on BUS. (How does she know they don't change seats as soon as they take off?)

Girlfriend is going to have an EXTREMELY difficult time with 8 teenagers, IF she still has custody of them. Whew.

She's such a c word said...

Maggie-those tweets show up for you yet?

Administrator said...

There are so many of life's little skills she is depriving these children of learning because she has to be a control freak. It's important for a kid to be able to learn to select an appropriate portion of food and cut it up himself. It's also important for a kid to learn how to open a fridge and help themselves to a healthy snack.

And it's certainly important for a kid to learn how to get on a bus by himself with other kids and figure out where they're going to sit. Either find an empty seat or make a new friend and ask someone if they can sit next to them. It's not just about the bus. It's about crucial social skills and I don't think it's any exaggeration to say that all these little learning opportunities stolen from there are going to have serious social consequences for them, if they have not already.

She's such a c word said...

Admin, how soon will you be able to get last night's episode recap up?

Anonymous for this time said...

I'm not sure when exactly the RV trip was (I think it was mid July for 2 weeks)

School for Ashley didn't start until August 22, and let's say she had to get there a week early - if she's staying in the same townhouse she was before, then she didn't leave the trip to go to school. It's only a 6 1/2hr drive from her place to the school. (we've driven it so we know)

Administrator said...

I'll try to get the recap up today, I've done about 1/3 of it.

Westcoaster said...

Yesterday, after our Labor Day barbecue guests had gone, and after I had done the dishes and cleaned up the kitchen, and after I skimmed through the show postings here, I picked up my daughter's People magazine and read the update feature article about the children whose fathers had died on 9/11 before they were born, and about the mothers who have been raising them. And again, as I said sometime yesterday, Kate Gosselin is rendered completely irrelevant this week as she should be. I will always feel sorry for her children because it is now totally obvious how royally effed up they are; they continue to live with the narcissistic bitch of a mother who has dragged through a reality show life and seems to have no real sense or love of mothering.

And honestly, an index card for the bus driver of the G8 seating chart? If my coffee had already brewed there would be a keyboard needing repair right now. Effing control freak. A) Pretty sad your children need one and B) Mr. Bus Driver Person is your behavior supervisor? My guess is that these kids are not going to last a semester on the bus route, and perhaps not even in school. If having the show cancelled is not enough karma, well here comes pre-teen karma, with a dose of badly behaved 7 year old 'pre-schooler' karma as well. And yes, it does reflect on the parent in this case. Twitidiot.

susieq said...

So stupid! According to my Dish Network guide Kate is scheduled to be on the Today show next Monday. We can all hope this is her last free trip to New York.

"She can kiss my "bleep" ( ass )



I don't care if this is a family show. Those were absolutley the only two sentences out of anybody's mouth in the whole series of shows that were PRICELESS. And they came from her best friend.....LOL

I hate The Today Show. And I'm betting the People magazine article will be out also with Kate "foraging" for the winter freezing veggies courtesy of People photographer.

Worried More Than Ever said...

{{{{sigh}}}}

How many of you are even more worried about the kids now that the show is almost over?

Her wrath will be even greater than ever, and she most likely blames the kids for the cancellation.

I just can't help but imagine those poor kids are abused by her from the moment they wake up, until they go to sleep again( except Hannah, of course ).

I can see her screaming at them at 5:30am until the bus disappears from her sight, and as soon as she picks them up she continues screaming until the lights are out at...what...7:30?

I bet she still uses the red plastic spoon dailey, as well.

I can only hope and pray that Jon is watching like a hawk and will intervene.

How horrifying. This whole episode was just out of control. It was SO hard to watch her rule with such an iron first. It was SO funny when Jamie was walking to her rv and put her thumb out as to hitch hike outta there. And did anyone ever notice that Steve's ring is GONE!!!! He USED to wear it but hmmmm not now. He seems SO used to her antics. And she wonders why her kids throw fits all the time. Maybe it's cuz she is INSANE.

no mo worryin bout me said...

Hey Jude, Don't be fooled, and Just stop. I want to apologize for behaving badly. I posted a comment 3 times earlier that disappeared shortly after it appeared, which I will consider a blessing because I would need to delete in anyway. I also went back and deleted any that could be interpreted as mean. After so many here welcomed me after the misunderstanding about my name, I guess I felt too comfortable and butted in where I shouldn't have. The last thing I want to do is offend someone. Other than the comment I made when I said "laugh"!! I was clueless to where I was fighting with anyone. My feeling were hurt and I got defensive and I'm sorry.

Is there any way, or information I can give you that will prove to you I am not a troll, without telling the world who I am. I'm totally willing to do so. I have never posted on any other blog except my facebook. Heck, I'm not computer savey enough. Look at what a jumbled mess I made when I started here.

If you want me to go after that, I will. I just don't to leave with bad feelings. Some may say I shouldn't care, but I do.

BM has last week's episode posted on her site. Makes me think she's in cahoots with TLC because YouTube blocks them because of copyright infringement. Probably she'll have the other episode posted next week. Sometimes you can find the episodes, in parts, in YouTube archives.

"Honestly, I just don't even know what to say anymore. In an inadvertently self-revealing moment in the midst of her rant about how no one ever helps her, Kate snarls, "I'm always the jerk that's running around like a nut." That's absolutely true. The problem is that for all her solipsism, Kate will seemingly never understand that she's the one with the problem.

Next week, Kate makes one last self-absorbed attempt to convince her few remaining viewers that she's not really the horrible person she's revealed herself to be over the last four years. Good luck with that."

i truly hope that jon watched this and is going to use it to file for a change of custody. you can clearly see this woman is coming unglued and it can't be more obvious than it is right now.

Her argument would be that it was a television show. It was edited for dramatics. She was told what to do and what to say - for ratings. I doubt that it would hold up in court. I think he's going to need more than that. Wouldn't those tweets to strangers about her kids' behavior work better for him in court?

Admin, yes? no?

"Did that rogue pic of khate that she needed ratclaws to destroy ever make it to press??? hmmm I don't think so..."
***************************


That was absolutely priceless. You could see her clenching her jaw, trying hard not to lash out at him. She was definitely holding back on exploding in rage. You could see the wheels turning in her head - what she wanted to say was that he was paid to do his job, she ordered him to do it and he refused.

I won't be posting the episode it's a clear copyright violation.

The two most telling phrases

Ashley saying to the kids (paraphrasing here): I'll always love you no matter what anyone else says to you.
** Hm, gotta wonder who Ashley thinks would ever tell those children that someone doesn't love them? Right? **

Kate saying everyone leaves her eventually. Unfortunately she can't see past her own nose and blames it on her "situation" and they can't "handle it" ??? WTF!

IT'S YOU KATE! GET IT?!

Mamma Mia said "Cara is forever known as the chubby kid who ate the slice of pizza that sent Ashley packing, all thanks to you."

Actually, Mady was the one who ate the pizza and then apologized tearfully to Kate. And to Kate's credit (a very rare thing) she told Mady it wasn't her fault, that the adults should have told the kids to stay out of the fridge.

As my DH pointed out, with all that crew there filming, you're telling me that Steve couldn't have found something else to eat? It honestly didn't seem like he was all that upset about the pizza. And frankly if it was so important, Steve could have taken the red SUV into the next town and picked up some fast food or whatever he wished.

As someone pointed out, this had nothing to do with Pizza or with Steve, this had to do with Kate not having control of the food and how it was parceled out. With Kate, it's all about control. Why do you think she went on and on about her "organization"?

Kate needs to realize that her micromanaging is one of the reasons people "always leave (her)". When someone micromanages you constantly, it means they fundamentally don't trust you to get the job done on your own. It make people feel like a child. It's disrespectful. Frankly, Kate, it's a wonder Ashley stayed as long as she did. When someone tells you "You're too incompetent to handle things on your own" constantly, whether by your words or by your actions (which we all know speak louder than any words ever could), eventually they throw up their hands and say "Fine. I give up. Why bother?" because nothing they ever do is going to satisfy you and they're tired of trying to live by your rules and never measuring up.

Relationship are give and take. Did it ever occur to you that the reason people leave isn't because they can't take the kids, it's because they can't take your behavior? That in all of these failed relationships, you, not they, are the common denominator?

Perhaps you are the one who needs to change. Put that in your organic, no fat salad and chew on it for a while.

Couldn't Jon subpoena the production crew, Jamie, Ashley and Steve as to her bizarre behavior and/or treatment of the kids?

Regarding the photo and I may be wrong (imagine that!)...I think someone got a compromising photo of Kate and Steve and that's what she was so upset about.

I'm with you all the way on this Judy. She slammed the door in his face the night before, but the next day she defended his right to eat pizza. Nothing like making up after a lover's spat. ha.

I wasn't sure how to feel when Ashley and Jamie were talking trash about Kate in front of Cara and Mady. Then I realized as much as it may hurt those kids to hear them talk that way it's probably good for them to know they're not alone in their thinking that their mom is a bitch to everyone. Now that she's chased the nanny and the bff off her island the only survivors left are the kids and they probably know that one by one they'll get kicked off too. What a sad freaking story this has been from day one.

My only regret while watching this POS show is that I didn't have a Rachael Ray garbage bowl sitting beside me. I hear it doubles as a barf bowl but I don't want to support HER either.

susieq said...So stupid! According to my Dish Network guide Kate is scheduled to be on the Today show next Monday. We can all hope this is her last free trip to New York.

::rolling eyes:: Well, this will be interesting to see how she spins things. If she is on, then odds are likely she has another show in the works.

@ The People magazine article about the kids who never met their dads because of 9/11; I picked up that People because of that article specifically. It was so moving, wasn't it? It puts things in perspective, not just the Kate fiasco, I rarely, if ever think about her when I'm not here, but everything that is important to me.

Yesterday, my son marched in a Labor Day parade with his fellow Navy Sea Cadets. They all looked so sharp dressed in their uniforms. This was his first time marching with them as he is a new member. I felt such pride & I couldn't stop smiling. My husband got yet another picture of my son with our Governor! (my son gets a lot of opportunities because of Moore*Mart) www.mooremart.org

I just don't think Kate however thinks about these moments that she could get from her children; the pride, she could encourage, be happy, let them LIVE for God sake. There are so many bad things in life, & those things can happen any moment. Cherish what you have now. Be IN the moment. Live for today.

If someone did, the person won't be sitting on it. It's all about the money. The photo will show up in the NE or Star.

Pam said...I will never understand why God allowed that sick woman to breed 8 innocent little kids. I'm sure each kid has a purpose in life and are meant to be here, but through her? I will never understand. SO SO SO many other deserving women out there who would've appreciated and loved those kids so much more.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Many months ago my dear neighbor experienced the death of her 3rd grandbaby due to stillbirth. One night she said to me "Sometimes I dont understand how God gives this woman 8 healthy babies that she doesnt even want, and yet He saw fit to take my 3 grandchildren."

Don't jump on her, it was her profound grief speaking. But I had no answers her. Katie was gifted 8 healthy children to use and neglect and single handedly drive them each into their own adult pathologies. And there is nothing any one can do to stop her - in fact there are people who gleefully pay Kate actual MONEY to watch her do this.

I thought that too - then I thought -

Not saying that it's right - but I figure Ashley and Jamie have heard those two girls complaints about their mother for a very long time. They probably thought nothing about talking in front of them - as the girls have said the same things.

Kirkland said...

Not sure if anyone has mentioned this, but I thought it was so sad when Maddy (Cara?) apologized to Kate after the pizza tirade. Not sure of the exact words, but her voice sounded so sad when she apologized for eating the pizza.

Did anyone else catch that?

Totally agree and think that's exactly why she was so PO'd, because, despite what she says, if it was just a pic of her, she'd welcome it...and no one is taking pics of her anymore...can't remember the last time I saw one w/o Chris taking it.

Tucker's Mom said...

Out of all the in-fighting and hissy-fit-throwing, mostly among the adults, what struck me most about last night's second installment of the RV from Hell Tour was what Admin has said so, so many times.
What really hurts with the narcissist Momster is that they will act like they do it all themselves and as a nanny/babysitter, you don't contribute to the raising of the children.
Ashley got that in spades at the end of the show. Kate reduced Ashley to "paid help" and how dare she not earn her keep. Then, oh well, everyone leaves anyway and I go on and I can't leave, don't leave, wouldn't leave (her kids)
Poor Ashley did not leave because of the kids, she left in spite of her tender love for them.
I have to say, Admin, you called this one.

Vanessa said...

@dotsicle,
Don't you think those kids asked if they could have the pizza? If kate had been in that RV, the answer WOULD have been a HELL NO! I seriously doubt Mady just went into the fridge and grabbed the pizza. Just WOULD not happen with those kids. Like any "normal" adult, they let them have pizza. Oh, and if she DOESN'T eat pizza, why save a piece for HERSELF??? Didn't she say there were FOUR PIECES FOR ALL THE ADULTS???

$100 worth of chicken?? for 15 people?
Is it just me, or does that sound like a bit of an exaggeration? And please! Because they didn't eat THAT night, it was wasted??? Whoever said upthread that the chicken would be even BETTER the next day is right! Unless she burns it, AGAIN!
