Kate's angry bus stop pickup, Thursday 9/29/11

Infdaily.com
Is Kate taking the cancellation of the show out on the kids? What could they have possibly done between the walk from the bus to the car that would warrant such a vile outburst?

Good Lord. She's this angry when they've JUST stepped off the bus? They didn't have TIME to do anything wrong.

I hope they went home, changed and went straight to Jon and Ellen's house for some food, fun and cuddles.

kate can't do sh** said...

Someone said Kate's armpit looks weird in those photos. It's because she had an incision in it and an implant stuffed inside. Probably twice.

Gosselin Gossip said...

Admin,

Quick correction: The photo captions should say "infdaily.com" (minus the 't'), not "inftdaily.com". The actual links to INF Daily are fine.

On the subject of the children's shoes. Does anyone else think the shoes look too big for them? Perhaps now that Kate is poor she had to buy them shoes that would last for a few years.

As far as those armpits... it looks like she is wearing her a** under her arms.

Laurie said...

SHE.IS.A.BITCH! It breaks my heart to see the looks on the kids' faces.

Marie said...

Nah, the kids don't need to have done anything, all they need to do is show up. She's probably mad because it's Jon's weeekend and she's giving them instructions on how they need to obey her and only her all the time, everyday. Be quiet, don't get your clothes stained, don't get sick, don't forget your lunch box because you'll never see it again, remember to wear matching clothes, remember Ellen hates you, remember Daddy is the one who is poor and the reason we are no longer on TV. AM I UNDERSTOOD!!!? No you can't have a different opinion Joel, No you can't bring home a stuffed animal Hannah, it's a waste of sapce! No you can't listen to anything dad says!

Laurie said...

I just zoomed in on the boys' shoes and yes Carezee, they do look a little like clown shoes. Maybe it's just the angle or type of shoe but you're right, they do look too big for them.

Red Sky At Night said...

I hope they went home, changed and went straight to Jon and Ellen's house for some food, fun and cuddles.

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

The photos were taken Wednesday. Sadly, they would have gone home, not to Jon's.

Nobody Likes a Narcissist said...

Wow, those poor, sweet children. I can imagine the dread they must feel as their fun bus ride with school friends nears the end of the route and approaches the bus stop where this nasty witch will be there waiting like their warden. As many have already said, what the heck could be so horrible to cause Khate to act like this within mere minutes of greeting them after a long day at school?

I'm sure that I am not the only parent here with years under my belt of picking up the kids at school. Most normal parents love that time of the day, especially with kids that age. It's where we get our precious children returned to us, but get to hear all about their day as they are making their way through life at school and growing, maturing, and becoming more responsible every day. Not to sound sappy or anything...okay, just a little, but when I see my kids again at the end of a long day, my heart sings. I love them more than anything or anyone in the world, and I love being with them. I can't imagine screaming at them like that. Those precious kids deserve so much better than this witch of a "mother".

fidosmommy said...

RE: armpits. Take a look at the pic of the other armpit, too. It looks the same. Someone may have been messing with her armpits, ya think?

RE: the kids' expressions. They just look resigned to all this. They look like the saddest children in these pictures.

Is Jamie in town? Kate is only wearing one diamond necklace. Usually she wears 2 when Jamie's not there. Hmmmmmm.

On the subject of the children's shoes. Does anyone else think the shoes look too big for them? Perhaps now that Kate is poor she had to buy them shoes that would last for a few years.
-----------

I'm Asian and was always one of the shortest kids in the class. However, I had rather big feet that grew pretty fast around the Gosselin kids' ages.

My mom always bought the next half-size up so my feet had room to grow and she wouldn't have to buy shoes so often.

Now as an adult, I'm only 5' but wear size 7.5 (sometimes 8 depending on the shoe).

Kokomo, Cocktails, and Dreams said...

I don't know when I've seen such a suck-up...this time to an author. I think Kate's taught her what to do with exclamation marks!

TLC ship is sinking said...

Did Kate notice her paparazzo?

I wonder if she's angry at the kids for not hurrying into the big blue bus to avoid having pap photos taken. Similar to how she got angry at some of the kids for not being ready to go upon arriving at Mt. Rushmore.

Yet, she chose to have this argument out in the open, in front of Mr. Lone Pap, instead of waiting until the kids got into the van.

Either that or maybe it was another battle between Kate, the Mama Bear vs. Bus Driver over her kids.

kate can't do sh** said...

Every time I look at those photos and see her big mouth wide open, I am convinced she rules by fear. It's horrible. They are afraid of her. She thinks that is the only way to keep 6 in line. But Kate, the damage you are doing is irreversible now. You will have such a difficult time with these kids in the future because of what you are doing to them now. They may have emotional problems because of the fear they grew up with. I see it all the time in my work. All it takes to f**k up someone is to have an angry dad or a controlling mom while you are growing up. Or a mother who seeks fame at the expense of her children. Yes. Even that one will cause future emotional problems. You poor, poor dear. Hope I'm around to see how you fare.
There's trouble ahead folks. Fasten your seatbelts.

Just Me said...

er what? She keeps Jamie's jewelry and only allows her to wear it when she is with Kate? The rest of the time Kate wears it?

I'm confused, I think...I hope.

If that is the case, she really does take control to otherworldly levels. I mean seriously.

PJ's momma said...

I've been meaning to ask, did anyone see the post-9/11 cover People magazine? I didn't and am wondering if there were a ton of letters to the editor again, slamming them for continuing to give this woman attention.

ncgirl said...

"letters to the editor again, slamming them for continuing to give this woman attention."

Preesi has a link. There are only three. One feels sorry for all of them. One says it's good the children can stop working. Another one says she will miss Susan Lucci, not Kate. LOL

****

Didn't she say that both of those necklaces were gifts from her "manager" and had nothing to do with Jamie?

Westcoaster said...

What an absolutely horrible face, and she has to know there's both a camera and other parents close by. The children look tired, resigned, deflated, but it does look like the little girls are taking the brunt of whatever she's spewing. Who does that?

Bah Bah Black Sheep said...

Sheeple aren't too bright, but I didn't know that they were this incredibly stupid:

xxxxxx
@ItsST @Livin4LifeLove @Kateplusmy8 Livin's right. Kate has nearly 60k followers to keep up with but she does her best to be responsive.

#############

She only has handful of tweens, teens, and delusional adults to keep up with!

fidosmommy said...

RE: Kate's necklaces.

I've noticed that she has 2, but when Jamie's in town, Jamie wears one and Kate wears one. Or else Jamie wears her own and Kate just takes one of hers off. I thought it was a symbol of their friendship - you know, like kids share those
friendship bracelets.

It's only of interest because if Jamie's not in town, this might be a subtle signal that the friendship is kaput. Or at least shaky.

Then again, it may symbolize nothing. I don't know.

fidosmommy said...

RE: boys' feet and shoes. Did anyone noticed if the boys had particularly long feet when they
were swimming this summer? I didn't notice that.

That extra space in front of the toes is probably where they store their snacks so Mommy doesn't know.

RE: Woman in the white van behind the Shrieking Woman. It seems she was there for the majority of that scene. I wonder if she keeps it to herself or tells what she heard and saw?

Meagler said...

I can not post a link to prove this , but at some point recently, Kate said the necklaces were gifts from her manager and that she had recently lost one.. I think that was back in early summer...

Zing!

Actually, I wouldn't be at all surprised if some of the kids have started to hoard food. Given their tight rations, a half a sleeve of crackers is almost a week's worth of dinner!

Anonymous said...

I said this in the previous post, and I think it's worth repeating; I think Kate always wears heels, wedges, and so on to make her look bigger and more intimidating to the kids--just one of the tools in her rule-by-terror system. Flat-footed, I bet Cara's already only about a half-head shorter than her mom.

And also in front of all the other kids who ride that bus. How embarrassing for those poor kids! It would have been an awkward bus ride the next morning.

Clicker said...

K8 probably bellowed: You have been TOLD TIME AFTER TIME where to sit, and how to behave, And YOU DIDN'T DO IT. Now *I* will have to take time out of my VERY BUSY DAY to haul you back and forth to school BECAUSE YOU REFUSE TO BREATHE THE WAY I TOLD YOU TO and got yourselves kicked off the lousy bus!!!!!!!!!!!!! You people cannot do ANYTHING right and I AM THE ONE WHO SUFFERS from it!!!! Now get in the car and do NOT say ONE WORD until I say you can talk!!!!!!!!!!

TLC stinks said...

Cara is getting tall. I hope she kicks Kate's butt in a few years.

We know Kate is a yeller. It's been my experience (my dad was a yeller) that I now avoid confrontation at all costs. For others, they imitate the behavior of yelling. Poor kids.

Nancy said...

I wonder why Aaden is missing from the pictures...

westbrooke said...

No one should be surprised, it is who she is. Reality TV doesn't want good mothers, they want freaks. At work, I am in meetings all of the time . . . they are highly overrated : )

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

Looks like she was having one of her "moods"...

No joke, Kate needs to include yoga & meditation in her daily activities ASAP. Her attitude will change for the better.

The stick will fall right out- promise.

Anonymous said...

My husband's mother, like Kate, has NPD and I can assure you this is NOTHING compared to what happens behind closed doors. I have no doubt those kids endure emotional and very likely, physical abuse on a regular basis in that home. What you see in these photos is their lives 24/7.

Cwgirlup75 said...

Where is Steve? Haven't seen any pics of him awhile. Maybe that's why she is extra mean lately (not that she needs a reason).

Hippie Chick said...

I LOVE when my son comes home from school. We make a healthy snack together, work on his homework, have some "us" time, it's really nice & mellow. What in the hell does she have to be stressed about ALL THE TIME? I really don't understand this woman at all.

If she would start looking for a job, bringing in some income, then maybe she wouldn't be so "stressed" & "exhausted". Ya know, I am so sick & tired of her using that damn excuse when she doesn't do shit to make herself that way. She MAKES everything that way w/ her self-importance. What does she do? NOTHING. She tweets, does her..ahem "site", &...um...worries about $$. Well, she should, she doesn't have a job, because she isn't actively looking for one. Take an effing xanax.

She needs to stop taking it out on her kids. They don't deserve it nor do they understand WHY. It is not their fault Kate screwed up. Not their fault at all.

*It's me. :)

Hippie Chick said...

Look at the mother in the 3rd pic down in the car. She's like; "Shut the eff up!!!"

Pam said...

She's the mother from hell. That's all there is to it.

Those kids got dealt a mean blow when they got her for a mother.

I picture them at night, laying in bed, praying "Dear God, please make me a bird so I can fly far far away from here." Good thing kids grow up fast and when they turn 18 they can bolt.

Kate can't even fake being kind to her children. Just makes you wonder what happens to a person to make them become so miserable about everything.

Hippie Chick said...

Pink said...

Agreed. I meditate all the time. Kate could use some deep breathing exercises. Her anger & "stress" seems to be at an all time high. Whatever. I have anxiety (for real) & it helps me.

You just can't help comparing this to the children's body language when Jon pics them up.

This series of pics shows Hannah excitedly showing Jon a project she made in school:

Here's Hannah BOLTING to him after getting off the bus a huge smile on her face, you know the kind of behavior I know I see at the bus stop every day, maybe I live in Cupcake land but this is NORMAL to me.

Call me crazy, Jon's series of pics look normal. Kate's bus stop pics? Not normal.

Kate is a twit said...

Just bringing over a post I made in the last thread.

"My thoughts regarding why Kate was in a foul mood at the bus stop. The pictures were taken 9/28. That was the same day that the Radar Online article came out that she said had "not one stitch of truth. She was pissed about that article. She probably was fuming about it all day. Unfortunately, the kids had to bear the brunt on her anger about the article."

She was angry about that article. She refuted the whole thing on twitter-why address it at all unless it hit home. The way the kids look in those pictures it's as if they're thinking "Mommy why are so angry. What did I do wrong?" They must be so confused and I worry about them.

Administrator said...

You know what I find most frightening about these pics? It's not just the way she's treating them. It's that she's doing it without a care that it's in front of other kids and other parents and the paparazzi, assuming she saw him. But even if it's just in front of other parents and kids, sheesh. She can't control her anger ten minutes and get them home, close the door and then explode on them? It makes me think this woman has serious, serious anger issues. She also can't respect her children enough to deal with discipline issues (again, what exactly did they do between the bus and the car again???) in private. I don't care how bad your kids is (again, kids just standing there looking sad), show him enough respect to keep discipline a private matter.

It's like how a parent who slaps their kid in the store around everyone probably has far more problems than someone who does it in the privacy of their home.

Bibby said...

I don't understand why Kate wanted children so bad. Why she just HAD to have one more. Obviously she hates children. Hates being around them. Hates taking care of them. Hates how they cramp her lifestyle. So why did she even try to have them? She acts as if they were abandoned and no one wanted them, so she sacrificed herself to take on so many kids. Those kids never asked to be born. They are here because of her and now she acts like they are ruining her life.

If you don't think you can tolerate children without being soooooo stressed all the time, THEN DON'T GET PREGNANT!

Administrator said...

Kate is a Twit, I think you're right on the money. What's funny is that article was comprised mostly of quotes DIRECTLY FROM HER. Oops!

Kate's speeding tickets also have a direct correlation to bad things happening in her life. Either her third or fourth one was after Joy Behar ripped her a new one. It was driving back from that. I did a comment awhile back about all the "bad" things (well, bad for Kate) that were going on around her speeding tickets. Another one was right after Jon let Aunt Jodi come over to the house. Ohhh, burn.

She is the type of person whose mood and behavior is very influenced by her environment. She can be lit like a match by environmental forces. I find these people very scary, people that cannot keep cool even as things are collapsing, wobbling, moving slightly, around them.

Kate is a twit said...

I don't think I have ever seen a picture of Kate picking up the kids at the bus stop where she is truly smiling and looks happy to see them.

________________________________________________

TLC stinks, I'm right there with you. My father was a yeller too. Not only do I avoid confrontation, but I was overly sensitive to criticisim. When you have a parent constantly angry at you because you are not perfect in their eyes, it's devastating. When a child grows up in a home where day after day their self esteem is removed bit by bit, by the time they are an adult it takes years of therapy to put it back. That is, IF the individual seeks therapy. Many go out and become involved in drugs and alcohol and/or illegal activities. Many more go forth and parent their children in the same exact manner, repeating the cycle.

There have been several anon reports that Jon is busy behind the scenes on behalf of the children. I hope so. Just like Kate's behavior has seemingly ruined her chances of working in Hollywood again, I hope public stunts like this will be her undoing custody-wise.

It's so hard to sit here and be a witness to seeing these kids being bullied and terrorized. Given the circumstances of their birth, they are so blessed and lucky to have arrived safely and with no long term health problems. Kate laid on bedrest for 46 2/3 weeks so they would have the best start in life, now all she's doing is ensuring they are going to be emotionally fragile, angry, easily led or maybe very rebellious teens/adults. We have all joked, me included, about reading about the G kids wilding out when they are teens. A spoof was just done abut it. Why is it that we all know raising a kid with unrealistic expecatations and an iron fist will result in THE EXACT OPPOSITE but Kate doesn't? Martha Stewart and her daughter Alexis were mentioned in the last post, perfect example. Years ago, Martha once said she had Alexis's someday (huge, over the top) wedding planned down to every detail. Martha was a very controlling parent as Alexis's new book will detail. So when Alexis did get married (now long divorced) it was in a mayor's office and she wore a brown pantsuit. She did the polar opposite of what Martha wanted. Kids are NOT "little extensions of myself" they are unique individuals. You can guide them with reasonable boundaries and expectations and watch them blossom into the incredible person they were born to be.... or you can smother their individuality and make unrealistic demands and conditions and watch them slowly begin to rebell and act out at every turn. And when that happens she exclaim "but I gave them everything!" Because in her mind, good parenting means a $1.3 million dollar home, private school, organic food, Uggs boots and expensive vehicles. They would be *much* better off in the long run if they still lived in their E-Town house, ate meals where they could choose the amounts on their plates, went to public school and were raised by a non-narcissist parent who puts the kids needs before her own. Who does not have a hair-trigger temper and punishes out of anger.

Kate made it clear on her last "press tour" (lol) what her first love was. Money. A new job in entertainment. Her obsession with keeping her lifestyle. Her job right now should be raising those precious babies to be good people. Period.

Administrator said...

She had children because you get attention when you're pregnant and have an infant. Since she lives very in the moment, it was hard for her to think ahead four or five years down the line to a point where she would actually have to take care of them and wouldn't be getting attention to do it. Now that we're at that point, she is positively miserable.

Here's another bus stop gem from Kate:
http://www.realitytvkids.com/2010/01/shocking-photo-of-kate-hushing-up.html

Remember the good ole days where the sheeple would try to say Kate is just joking around at the bus stop? I haven't heard that lately. The flock is out to pasture never to come home.

Kate is a twit said...

What I also find very telling is that she was so quick to refute the ROL story, but has yet to address the bus stop pictures. I guess she can't come up with a good excuse.

Administrator said...

The Martha--Alexis dynamic is fascinating and I look forward to reading her book.

Although the thing I remember most about her is remember her show Whatever, Martha??? Where she would basically watch her mom's episodes and make fun of them??? Ohh, ouch!

That kind of sweet revenge is coming for the Gosselin kids.

Laurie said...

Kate, Did you kick Shoka when you got home?

Blog Fan said...

When I drive home from work and get behind a school bus leaving kids off at their bus stops, the mother or father is there to greet them with smiles and hugs, and both of them wave to the bus driver. It's such a happy scene, quite the opposite of Kate and her kids. Those children are so much happier when they are with Jon and Ellen.

A lot of her tweeties are wishing the twins a Happy Birthday today. If they were such dedicated fans wouldn't they know that the twins birthday is next Saturday?

Blog Fan said...

She sure doesn't act like her almost-11-year-olds are "very loved". I sure wouldn't want her for a mother. She needs to learn about positive parenting.

Midnight Madness said...

But even if it's just in front of other parents and kids, sheesh. She can't control her anger ten minutes and get them home, close the door and then explode on them?

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

But isn't it the lesser of two evils if she explodes in public with people around rather than if she waits until she gets home to do it when there is nobody there to protect them? If she has to do it (and she clearly cannot control herself) maybe it's much better to get it off her chest right away with others present. If she holds it in, it could build up and the explosion could be devastating to the kids.

If she sees photos of herself doing this and is aware that others know what is happening, wouldn't she be more likely to seek help from a counselor about it, knowing that the public's eyes are on her? Or don't narcissists care about how they look to those around them and they just keep doing what they are doing?

What could these kids have done that would make her so angry that the veins pop in her neck? It could be, as admin said, she is influenced by environmental factors. She's off the deep end right now, negative publicity isn't helping matters, stress levels are at an all-time high, and sadly, her anger outlet is the kids. I hope someone is there in that house keeping an eye on them. Thank goodness they are in school all day and this didn't happen at the beginning of summer break.

Administrator said...

Midnight that's not exactly what I'm saying. Sure it's probably better for the kids to get her anger over with right away.

But if someone has such serious anger issues they cannot control it in public, that to me is an indication of the seriousness of their anger. They are so out of control they cannot hold it back for ten minutes, nor do they have awareness or care about others around them.

It shows a lack of restraint, and it shows a lack of awareness that what they are doing, to others appears wrong and frightening.

I don't want Kate to ever explode on these kids like this, but the fact that she is doing it in public suggests the seriousness of her problems.

She is a Cow said...

There is no excuse for Kate not to wait until she is in her van (at the very least) before she blows up in front of other students, parents and paparazzi.

Everyone is wondering what they could have possible done between the bus and walking over to her to get such a horrendous smack down in public. Lets for argument sake, say that one of the kids misbehaved on the bus and the bus driver told Kate. OK, that has to be addressed, but should it be addressed to all 8 of them, or just the one or two who misbehaved? I am willing to bet that these kids end up guilty by association all the time. She probably forces them to go against each other, by involving the innocent parties. If one misbehaves, they all have to hear about it. They all get the lecture and they probably all get punished.

Grammar Grammy said...

Her love of writing and desire to be an author cracks me up more than the kids conversation blog. She can't lose the exclamation marks, and her grammar is horrible. She wrote:

"We’ve been having mechanical issues/malfunctions with the Big Blue Bus (it’s a Dodge Sprinter) and the kids and myself were discussing them on the way to school yesterday morning — all the changes that it will cause when it goes into the shop."

MYSELF had a conversation, Kate? Myself doesn't discuss anything. It's "The kids and I were discussing them..."

Wouldn't you think that she could at least proofread before she posts, considering the fact that she believes that she is so great in grammar and spelling? After all, she did say that English was her best subject in school. She could have fooled me.

Midnight Madness said...

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

I agree. Absolutely. It shouldn't happen at all, and the fact that she is doing it in public is very serious. We don't know if she explodes with others around her and then it blows over, or if it is repeated when she gets home and is alone with those kids, in which case they get a double whammy.

She did say that she isn't aware of other people, and she made that quite clear in these photos. For the sake of these kids, I just hope that she's the type of person who gets angry, lets loose, and then two minutes later everything is fine. These kids need to get out of there fast. This can't end well. I hope Jon is stashing these photos away for future reference.

Kate's Cart said...

I have thought for a very long time, what kind of hell and fear those poor kids live in behind closed doors at home. Their faces look terrified, not one bit of happiness at the end of a long school day.

I too remember her saying the necklaces were from her agent and that she recently lost one.

Westcoaster said...

Uh oh, big blue bus out of commission? Whatever is K8 going to do while it is being fixed?? Homeschool the kids? See, this is where a normal person could rely on a cadre of friends/family to help out, but this crazy has no one. Guessing there are not a whole lot of 10 passenger loaners out there. Good thing those kids only go back and forth to the school bus since there is no budget for extra-curriculars.

She has sure dug herself a new hole of s#*¥ with those bus pickup photos.

Dwindle said...

what is so challenging for Kate to pick her kids up from the bus stop? WHY all histrionics and dramatic productions all the time?

Open the back of the van and the side door of the van - loot goes in the back, kids go in the side. Done in 2 minutes. If they need a couple of minutes to run around and spew off some energy, so what? It's not like she has anything else to do. Lord knows they know where to sit and buckle their own seatbelts.

Why does she have to line them up, 'organize' them and 'matermind' them, between here and there? She gets off on it, she really does. She feels bored, restless, on edge unless she is aboslutely frantic about whatever is at the end of her nose.

Get proper treatment, Katie. You are ill, and you dont need to feel so unhappy all the time.

Dwindle said...

I cant believe a word she pretends to say. This business about the blue van is likely a grift attempt or a ploy for sympathy at how broke she is. Sell the Audi Kate, and maintain the kids vehicle.

Exactly! Katie is such a dumb*ss. It has to be so awful for them at the end of a long day to be greeted with that hateful, nasty, angry look and tone of voice. Those poor kids deserve so much better in a 'mother'.

Gimme said...

And the problem with the big blue van is the kids' problem how? Oh but it is their big blue vban, Dodge Sprint mind you and the tweeties need to know this why? Guess she is telling the kids they need to get a job because she is getting tired of paying maintenance on their big blue bus along with all their other bills. Those poor kids have huge grownup problems to deal with like work, transportation and all their bills - I guess that is because it is "their house." Ok, right.

Anonymous said...

When I look at the children's faces, I don't see anyone reacting to her over-reaction. It's just the same old, same old. She doesn't seem to be addressing any one child - it's the whole group. They must long for individual attention. What on earth could have set her off this time? She has ruined what should have been a happy time for them. I can remember when my daughter, at about the same age as the younger children, literally bursting in the front door, "Mommy, I'm doing long division". Every day after school she would be so trilled to tell me about her school day. With Kate, it's all about her - what she expects from her little money-makers - not what they might want to share with her. It's sad the she behaves this way in public - who knows what goes on behind closed doors. I would like to hear from the woman who was sitting in the vehicle next to this exhibitionist.

Administrator said...

The photos of Hannah running to Jon showing him her school project are some of the most telling.

It's Jon they behave like normal kids around. Look Daddy look at what I did in school!!! Kate? This is normal. This is what is SUPPOSED to happen when you pick kids up.

When they're with Kate, it's like they're being carted off to solitary confinement or something. They wouldn't dare bother her with "Look Mommy see what I did."

Kate's Cart said...

Don't get what the big deal would be with getting the BBB into the shop. Take the kids to the bus stop and drop the van off to get worked on. If she had one friend, they would bring her home or the not a nanny could, or the laundry girl, or the house cleaner. I am sure no want wants to do her one favor. Or if she could only fit 6 in the OTHER SUV, maybe Mady's or Cara's friends mom could pick them up one day. But we know Kate does no one any favors only takes.

Is it normal for 7 years old to still need car seats? I mean I don't have kids and I remember at that age that I didn't need a car seat anymore. Or is this another attempt to keep them young?

Marie said...

What gets me here is this:

1.) Kate told Jon if he couldn't discipline the kid quietly, then don't do it at all.

2.) She does not notice other people.


SO basically she has ato have that control over Jon yet with her it's all fine and dandy to make her kids feel/look like that?

It's like when you're a kid and your parent chews you out in public. One it's embarrassing and two you've all been there and remember what it felt like. You feel like a spec of dust as people pass you by and maybe look and then you have to walk through the store shuffling your feet and looking down. I mean kids have feelings too. If you feel you have to get on them, please I can wait I think for privacy?

Administrator said...

Has anyone ever seen another parent confront a parent disciplining their kid in public?

I did once as a kid in the grocery store when a mom was spanking her kid. Some other mom chewed her out.

Anonymous said...

Don't you know admin...per the sheeple of course the kids look happy to Jon, he's the 9th child and doesn't have to deal with the real raising of the kids. Kate is stressed 24/7 because she does it all alone. It's normal. They are stressed too and the only have 3 kids etc....

They make the dumbest reasons to excuse the fact that kate is a witch who doesn't understand the difference between rules and being an absolute control freak. kate makes her own stress. jon does a much better job. I don't care how "little" he has the kids. He doesn't take his own issues out on the kids.

I too LOOOVE the pic of the kids clamoring around jon. that's what after school should look like. thanks for reposting them

______________

They're supposedly using 'booster' seats for the kids although I haven't seen the inside of the BBB in ages to know if they're boosters or still traditional 'car seats'.

PA law says: "Children ages four (4) and older, but under the age of eight (8) must be buckled into a federally-approved child booster seat, which must be secured to the vehicle by the seat belt system, no matter where they ride in a vehicle (front or back seat). Booster seats must be used in conjunction with lap and shoulder belts."

admin i agree. kate does let her moods dictate all. i posted in previous thread that the kids have zero routine in their lives. they never know what to expect.
mommy got a new ring and TLC promised to scratch from her bucket list equals ice cream for dinner and fun.
mommy got cancelled or radar online posted a "not true" article equals early bedtime, no ice cream and screaming and belittling.
that is why i say kate is far from organized. the lack of routine is so obvious in how the kids act. they don't know which mommy will be there when they wake up. will it be mean mommy, manic mommy or nanny.

EM

fidosmommy said...

Oh, the kids can't be using booster seats. Kate hasn't done the soggy "too big for car seats, can't afford booster seats" saga so her fans will line up to send them to her.

Snark.

Anonymous said...

Oh Lordy bee..the BBB needs maintenance. Why do the kids need involved in that discussion.
I'm sure kate can rent a van for time its down and I'm sure Jon will be getting a bill for half the maintenance. She makes such a fuss about everything.
I can hear it now. "No kids, leave me alone, I'm so stressed doing it all alone and now have to find a way to pay for YOUR BBB..see I told you we would suffer without the show. You should have tried harder to be cute"

BTW does anyone wonder if kate was furious with her kids when the Jon bus stop photos were released? I bet she gave them the silent treatment for a week to punish them for making her look bad, for making Jon look good and for walking out of order.

steff said...

Bus stop pickup with my kiddo was always smiles, hugs, "look what I did today mommy". I always had his snack made, he ate it while we talked about his day. Now that he's 17, I still have to pick him up from the school (rides the bus to a charter school, bus picks them up at the regular high school). We still talk about his day, his teachers, what ridiculousness happened in government class...years and years later, he still includes me in his day. Which isn't easy to accomplish with a teenager.

Last night, my kiddo had 6 friends spend the night along with my brother coming over to play a card game called magic (like D&D). One of kiddo's friends said "you're mom is the COOL mom" all because I allowed so many friends over, I ordered them pizzas, I let them take over my dining room, and let them all head out to breakfast at 6 am (after they stayed up all night playing). They will all remember how much fun they had and how a mom let them do what kids/teens do, without any bitching or moaning.

And THAT'S how you make memories!!!!

Anonymous said...

Notice how kate is grifting for bday gifts already with her constant chatter about her almost 11 year olds? Hoping Taylor Swift will see the tweets kate?

Also, what's with the "very loved" almost 11 yr old thing. She tries way too hard. It's like the posters on facebook who are always talking about their fabulous lives, perfect husband, enthralling vacation. It screams "look at me-I'm sooo happy" People who feel content don't need to prove it.

Kate needs approval and attention every time she blinks. It must be so draining to be around her. I'm sure the kids know they have to suck up to mommy to get even a glance. I found it weird how the kids "thanked mommy for the new house, for their dinner slop and for the smallest things". Now I get a thank you is great but from the kids it always sounds so contrived. Like they are trying their very best to stroke mommy ego and stave off the anger.

kate is a freak. In her twitter world she is the perfect mom, is super close to her kids, bakes cookies en mass, plays and reads to them etc. Question? When in 6 years of filming did we actually see these interactions? Wasn't it the realest reality show? Kate thrives on her tweeties for keep her ego tank full and they know it's the only way to get a response or a retweet. Kiss ass bigtime if you want kate to look your way for a second.

Anonymous said...

Hello Tweeties. I just ran 10.5 miles, baked organic cookies, have organic dinner cooking, the kids are playing their educational games, I'm multi-tasking by doing phone interviews and updating Shoka diaries. After dinner the kids will tell me I'm the best mom in the world!

Not a tweet from kate but that is how she views herself. Her reality is not reality. It's all made up for twitter. She has so much free time to tweet I have to wonder what she does all day long. Seems like she lounges and tweets while staring at the phone waiting for TLC to decide they made a mistake. I'm sure she thinks .."don't they know I have an army 56,000 plus tweeters."

Also notice last week she tweeted it was shower time and Mady was supervising? After sitting on her butt all day long can she now even supervise shower time? She has to toss it to Mady who is probably truly exhausted. I'm all for family pitching in and helping but I feel kate doesn't do enough in her day to warrant assigning mady to do the work while kate is tweeting. Be a mom and let your kids have some down time. ugh
It's like the episode in the new house where Joel needed wiped and kate spent five minutes running around screaming for Jon to help her. She doesn't DO anything. She just barks orders.

Kate uses that a lot. I don't think she knows the rule when to use "I" and when to use "me" because she was always correcting Jon, often when he was right, so she uses "myself" which, of course, is incorrect.

Kate an author? LOL

8countem8 said...

I find it highly distrubing that one day Kate goes from screaming in her kids' faces to the next day all happy and chatting about, "beloved," kids. Almost scream bi-polar some what. Her extremes fro angry to happy are so uncomfortable to watch.

I sincerely wonder what she will do when her kids get old enough to have minds of their own? All teens do. They want independence, want you to no exist but only for money purposes. She can't control her kids lives forever. Oh wait, she can try but it won't be pretty that's for damn sure!

regarding this faithful tweeter...why is it kate couldn't reply "congrats" when mk got her show offer. i bet kate was seething with jealousy even though mk would have to pay for the show. these are all things kate could have done but she is too lazy to seek out opportunities. she wants them handed to her. i mean really..can't you support your tweeties and congratulate them even if the tweet has nothing to offer YOU kate?

kate is the "friend" who always feels the needs to compete with you and can never just be happy for you.

She had children because you get attention when you're pregnant and have an infant.

No, Michelle Duggar gets pregnant 20 some times because she likes the attention you get when you're pregnant and have an infant, and the 'fun' of tiny babies. Kate is sooooo NPD she only likes the attention she gets from being pregnant with SIX babies and having SIX infants.

Was Aaden there at the bus stop?

I'm not trying to figure out what the kids did to make Kate so angry, they don't need to DO anything, just exist. What I'm trying to figure out is if Kate knew the pap would be there, and if she didn't, WHY was he there? The kids aren't on TV any more, so no need for sudden press. I hope there isn't going to be an announcement of a new TV appearance.

8countem8...you are so right. teens just want a walking ATM machine. lol
kate is going to go insane with 8 teenagers trying to have lives of their own. i do wonder how she will handle it. even the most "organized" (snark) person loses control over their kids every move once the teen years hit.
kate has not laid the proper foundation at this point to prepare for the teen years. she has no clue what it's going to be like. add in the factor that the kids will have a lot of issues from filming to that and it's a recipe for disaster.

Kate is a twit said..."My thoughts regarding why Kate was in a foul mood at the bus stop. The pictures were taken 9/28. That was the same day that the Radar Online article came out that she said had "not one stitch of truth. She was pissed about that article. She probably was fuming about it all day. Unfortunately, the kids had to bear the brunt on her anger about the article."
----------

Kate once mentioned ON TV that she reads what the media says about her.

From one of admin's old DWTS recaps:
Kate next claims that she wakes up every morning and checks the news to see what her day will bring. Hopefully she also checks our blog, which is the most up to date on her shenanigans/lies if you don‘t mind my saying so! And she can pull it up on her iphone! First of all, though, that’s incredibly unhealthy. Most very famous people will tell you not to read the tabloids, they will just make you ill. Second of all, I thought she didn’t care what the press says. Now she wakes up every day hanging on their every word? How sad for you that you base your day around what some 25-year-old writer who really would prefer to work for The New Yorker is saying about you in US Weekly. I think she just likes to read about herself in print, she gets off on it, but Kate tries to play it like they are causing her to have poor self-esteem and all those magazines just want to be big meanies to her.

Why is anyone surprised Kate is screaming at her kids? On film? In public?

We've seen years of this. A certain group of people found that to be "entertainment." Enough so that she became a reality star. Those same people are now referred to as sheep.

This wasn't an act for a television show ... it's who Kate is. She couldn't edit her actions enough to keep a marriage, or to keep a television show once Jon was gone ... she certainly isn't going to edit herself now.

Hmmmmm, Kids in trouble at the bus stop and Kate has to go to a meeting on Friday early evening....could it be that a couple of the kids acted up in school and she got a note for a parent/teacher/principal conference? When my son was in school and we were stationed in CA they tried to hold the conferences in the early evening (up till 8) to fit the parents' schedules.

Admin asked above if anyone has ever seen another parent confront a parent disciplining their kid in public? Yes, when we were first married and stationed in Germany there was a mom screaming at her child as she dragged her along (with her husband following). I saw a CPT go up to them and say "SGT, you'd better get your wife under control right now!" The CPT took down his name and unit and I'm guessing that they got a little counseling.

Pam said...

Why can't Kate just get a rental van while her BBB is being worked on?

Easy as that. No drama.

But I think this is all more about her "Whoa is me, I need a job so I can get a new bus for my many many children - someone out there please give me a job. A tv job. So I can support my kids. Boo hoooo. Now my van is broken and we have to go back the old days of using two vehicles to get us places. Sniff sniff."


Kate, you have the money to jet off at the last minute to LA and buy a sequined dress for the Emmys. You have money for a sportscar. You have money to go play in NYC and get your hair done. Rent a damn 10 passenger van and stop with the histrionics already!

It's not about a back bone. It's about a pro-mother, anti-father judge who has generally ruled in Kate's favor. Jon took her to court many times, and he lost many times.

You can only go to the judge with the same concerns so many times before he says if you come to me with the same darn thing one more time I'm holding you in contempt, I've made my ruling, accept it.

If it was only that easy, chef. But, since it isn't and we know that the family dynamics are a lot more complicated than that, I'm counting on Jon to do all he can behind the scenes working for what is best for his kids whether it's through the courts or on his own. Whatever he decides, I know the details are none of our business. The best we can hope for is to never see Kate like this with the kids ever again.

Administrator said...

What's not really discussed much in my opinion is how traumatic taking a child's parent to court constantly is on a child.

Jon took this crazypants to court for over a year and really didn't make much headway. I know of kids who have thrown up, get sick, act out just with the IDEA of a parent going to court. Some kids think their parents are going to jail, not understanding.

For all we know some of the kids asked him to please stop fighting mommy, i.e. taking her to court. And since we know Kate talks constantly about court I'm sure she stresses the kids all out when she goes.

There are other factors here at play Jon is probably taking into account rather than just Kate treats these kids horribly.

Marie said...

Administrator, I' not sure what type attorney you are but, I have a question if you don't mind.

If this judge is a pro-mother, can't Jon go before a different judge? I'm not sure how common it is have a pro-mother anti-father judge, are they that common still? I mean Kate no longer has a job. Jon has a job. I would think a judge would be ore interested in a parent who has the ability to provide for the kids financial, emotional, ect.

Administrator said...

Marie, depends where you are. Usually, NO you are stuck with the judge you have.

If it were easy to get a new judge it would be absolute chaos as people judge-shop every time something happens they don't like. Most aren't gonna allow it. There is also an interest in keeping the same judge, a judge who gets to know the family, the case, etc., for stability for the family.

In CA you can only get a new judge at the very beginning of the case (usually before you know if the judge doesn't like you, so that doesn't help much) or later you have to prove the judge truly is prejudiced which you can never prove (like they're sleeping with your ex or something). My research of PA suggests it's similar to that, unless this judge truly is prejudiced, Jon is STUCK.

Marie said...

I'm in UT now anyway but sounds like the same thing would apply.

My thing is, Kate doesn't have a job. No income (or o she claims) whereas Jon does. So even now that she has no income or potential job offers how is she going to meet the kids needs? I would think a judge would look at that if a father brought it up.

chefsummer said...

Money is power & Kate has the cash well all know that.

Kate might be dumb about lots of things but money isn't one of thoese things.

PA PArent said...

If this judge is a pro-mother, can't Jon go before a different judge?

He would have to look long and hard to find a pro-father judge in PA, and even if he found one, his chances of changing judges is about as good as a snowball not melting in hell.

interesting that her tweeter world is quiet today, esp if perhaps the kids are with their father. Could she have taken her rage and her sportscar out for some speeding fun? Gone on a NYC shopping bender? She certainly is beyond mad about something. No pap photos of shopping for her much loved daughters' birthday. Something's up in PA.

Anonymous said...

chefsummer - Just what would you suggest Jon do? He's taken her to court again and again and been turned down by the judge again and again. He doesn't have unlimited funding and doesn't have the backing of a powerful TV network. Right now his best strategy is to quietly accumulate as much evidence against Kate as he can, until he has such a solid case against her that even the most pro-mother judge in the world can see that she is unfit. In the meantime, he's seeing the kids more often now that the show has ended and, hopefully, is able to mitigate much of the damage she is doing to them.

fidosmommy said...

Laurie suggested Kate needed to go to 2 meetings that night with school personnel.

I agree. Kate had planned to be at a tweet party and suddenly she has these 2 meetings on the same day she's reading the riot act to her children at the school pick-up spot? They could very well be connected. An imperative meeting between parent and school.

It could very well be that Kate is telling the kids that because of them, she has to change her very important plans (twitter party) and drive ALL the way back to the school and home again. That means she will be inconvenienced, and will be oh-so-tired after all this parenting. Yell, yell, yell, yell, yell.

Or, on the other hand, maybe JON was planning to go to regularly scheduled parent/teacher conference meetings, and had to back out for some reason, called Kate and inconvenienced her about her own children. That would certainly tick her off.

Whatever reason, that display had no place in the parking lot for all to see and hear.

The only reason for mentioning the BBB is that she is trying to grift free repairs or, more likely, a new large vehicle or sympathy for her supposed "poverty". There was no reason to mention the fact that she discussed it with kids otherwise.

Fortunately, most people other than the few sheeple finally have her number and recognize her grifting now. If she trades in that un-family friendly two-seater sports car then she should have no problem finding another used large van of some sort with that money.

Good grief - Now Kate is trying to deny that these bus stop photos were taken on Sep 29! First of all Kate, they weren't posted on Radar, they were posted on INFdaily so sorry sweetheart, good try! It took you what, almost 3 days to come up with that lame excuse?? The radar article was the one that you said was all lies, but was actually made up of mostly direct quotes from you, and there were no pictures from the bus stop in the article! Maybe the box-o-wine made you confused last night while you were trying to come up with excuses for the nasty bus stop pictures?? I'm sure the lovely lady in the background of a few of the pics could verify that these pics were in fact taken on Sept 29! Kate-you really really need to seek professional mental health help before you do something to yourself or your children that will be tragic..... please, if you actually do love your children as much as you claim you do, please seek cousenling for you and for them!!

Oh, geez...here we go again. Do you suppose Kate is going to say, "Thank you. I appreciate it, but please donate to your favorite charity instead."

I don't think we should hold our collective breaths.

Kate tweeted: "UGH!..Even the photos radar used on 'sept 29' were not current photos..So how did they no abt the schl routine that day?they weren't there!"

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

Oh, Kate, seriously? This is your response? First of all, Infdaily never said they took the pics on Sept 29th, they simply posted them that day. My guess actually is they took them the afternoon before, Wednesday, and posted them the next day, Thursday.

Anyway as someone else said, MISSING THE POINT! Who cares what day this week, month, or year you were yelling at your kids, the point is, you were yelling at your kids. In public. And they look beaten down. And we're scared for them.

What does their school routine have to do with treating the kids like crap?

Care to tell us Kate WHY you felt the need to talk to your kids like that?

Or, care to issue a damage control statement like I lost my temper and I'm very sorry it had to happen like that in public and I'm working on my issues in therapy???

She is so unstable right now, so out of touch with reality, and those kids live with her.

Administrator said...

She really needs to tell these people to STOP...SENDING ....HER....FREE....CRAP.

Misrepresenting your financial situation is a little something called FRAUD, Kate.

If these sheeple ever wise up and sue you, you might be in deep doo-doo.

Oh so not only was she going almost 90 mph at 1:30 in the morning, but she was also so tired her eyes were closing???/

WAKE UP KATE. LITERALLY!

Kate? What day were they taken?

Insert any date that ever existed, insert Christmas Eve 1492 why don't ya, and my opinion about how you are treating your kids remains the same.

Get it??

Yeah, I didn't think so.

So Kate is tweeting while driving and tired as well....Dumb woman

Marie said...

Maybe when she spelt continent she meant "continue?" Why am I be nice about it?

fidosmommy said...

"My eyes are closing like when driving tired.."

I'm not sure it should be taken literally. Just an opinion. I think she's doing a new verse to her "getting up to her 100 mph speed" song of last week.

Of course, she might BE very, very tired at 1:30 a.m. when she is speeding. I would be. But I don't think she's doing anything more than trying to stir things up on blogs and get some
"loving advice from worried fans" at the whole idea of Kate driving tired. It's all about Kate and getting attention any way she can.

May heaven help her if she is tweeting while driving tired, but I can't see even Kate Gosselin being that stupid.

fidosmommy said...

OK, she's going to twitter on about these party preps and how the twins are going to love absolutely everything their doting Mommy did for them. Do you think we'll be graced with pictures of these creations, or will they go the way of the Easter baskets - "the kids tore into them before I got a chance to get the camera..."

Kate doesn't rate said...

ROL did two stories on Kate this past week. The first was on how she hasn't found a job, with her actual quotes from the Today Show.

The second one was the next day with the pics at the bus stop.

It's possible Kate didn't see the INF Daily story which is too bad because it's got the closeup of her red face, vein popping anger. What difference does it make what day they were taken? She was angry and yelling. Her excuse for that is as lame as "It was TLC's editing" during the RV episodes.
Whatever, the events DID HAPPEN KATE!

The bus story - if she wasn't going to offer some kind of apology, saying she knows she shouldn't have gone off on the kids that way, then why even bring it up at all? What she said - that it wasn't on that day - is so incredibly stupid and makes her look like a fool. I know she's not the brightest person, but I had no idea that she's this stupid.

Administrator said...

She does look like a fool.

No explanation however lame to justify it (it wasn't as bad as it looked, the kids did this dangerous thing that warranted an immediate, harsh response, or some other lame excuse), OR no apology for it (it was not my best moment, I'm very sorry America had to see that, I'm working on myself so that never happens again).

Nothing. Except nitpicking over a tiny little date issue that makes no difference whatsoever to the POINT.

Westcoaster said...Typical Kate - it honestly doesn't matter WHAT date the pics were taken; the fact that they were taken at all, and quite recently, and she was caught screaming at her kids, is the real point. Idiot.
-----------

Same with when the pap photos of her Audi were released. It doesn't matter that those photos were taken before her show was canceled. It was the fact that she got an extra car (no matter how great the deal was) yet she tweets claiming she doesn't have enough money for kid activities like gymnastics or whines to the media about how she won't be able to support her family if the show is canceled. It's called saving for an emergency fund.

It's funny that she's defending the photo's date and the bit about scheduling but says nothing about how she comes off in those photos.

I tend to believe this is her manager keeping her relevant in the press, with these occasional pap photos. How often do you see a negative celeb article promote said celeb's website?

Why is she picking on RadarOnline but not other gossip sites reporting the same thing?

To the people saying maybe Kate went off on the kids because she had to go to a school meeting because one or more of the kids got in trouble COME ON! First, that is in no way an acceptable reason for her to act like she did and to treat her children like that. It is almost as bad as her constant excuses/lies. Second, Kate lies more easily than she breaths. Her 'meetings' have been discussed before concerning what they most likely are, if they even happened.

It just makes me angry that you are finding excuses for her behavior, and even angrier that the excuse blames the kids.

Tamara said...

Admin, I believe it was you who posted the multiple dates Jon went to court for the kids, I wonder what Kate's behavior and what the kid's behavior, was like around each date?

TLC stinks said...

I thought the photos looked like they were taken during warm weather but don't know what the temps were in PA last week. I think she's upset with Radar because she has no control anymore about what they publish. Obviously her "manager" or TLC PR is no longer supplying the hype she was getting. Love it that Radar posted the pics of her screaming. If these are old pics, I wonder what else is in their archives or Chris Watts'? It's karma that the bad stuff sells just like the good stuff. I bet we see more.

Earlier last week it was warm and muggy (in the Berks County Area), only recently has it cooled down to a normal fall temperature in the area. It was shorts weather Mon-Wed in the high 70's low 80's with a lot of humidity due to the pressure system that was floating around.

******

No need for anger, Tamara. No "excuses" that would even attempt to get Kate off the hook for her behavior in front of the kids and other people. No excuse for that at all.

My point in my post about that was that it takes very little to set Kate off like that. Having to change her scheduled "twitter" party for something having to do with her kids' schooling should be a mere change in schedule, maybe a mild annoyance. For Kate it's a federal case.

THAT was the point. Nobody's going easy on her, even though there are times I think we jump on Kate just to jump on Kate. There have been times I thought it was unfair. But then, does Kate know the definition of "fair" when it involves somebody other than herself?

Administrator said...

I agree no one was trying to excuse Kate. Finding a reason why someone is angry is not the same as excusing their anger. If anything most of us have said there is no excuse whatsoever.

I for one am curious what's making her so angry, but I certainly cannot find any good excuse for this public outburst.

If her fan doesn't see how angry she looks (sheer delusion), then I ask her fan to look at the faces of the children and see if she can't see how beaten down they look too.

Dwindle said...

I have a theory about why Kate is so annoyed with Radar Online right now.

She is aware that in the past they were PAID handsomely by TLC to promote Kate in the best light, even allowing that little pro-Kate chat room they had going on there. Now that financial deal has ended.

Kate might think she singlehandedly put ROL on the map and that they have made a lot of money off of her. She thought these past few years that ROL was a very important internet player while being All-Kate-Love, All-The-Time. Now they are showing her no loyalty despite how much she thinks they 'owe' her.

She thought they looovvveeeddd her and that she was beneficial to them. Now in her mind they have turned on her for no reason, despite how much she thinks she has done for them. All of the sudden, they dont know how to help her, despite them being paid in the past to do so.

To the rest of us it's just Karma, to Katie it's a personal betrayal. She is taking their shift very personally.

Parent and Alumna said...

I'm surprised that she didn't say that internet sources reported the incorrect date that the speeding ticket was issued, and therefore, it was irrelevant because the media didn't know her schedule on that date.

Someone asked about the weather in PA. Yes, it was warm and muggy last week - definitely warm weather clothing. Kids were dressed like that for school. Students were still in shorts.

Hippie Chick said...

I did once as a kid in the grocery store when a mom was spanking her kid. Some other mom chewed her out.


Oh, me me!! I usually can't keep my mouth shut, you all know that about me. I was not mean, but I calmly said something, "Maybe you're child is tired & just needs a nap, & maybe you're just overwhelmed right now." The women calmed right down & started crying. I rubbed her arm & we just stood there, while she told me that her husband works all the time & everything is on her.

SOME people need the benefit of the doubt, but with Kate, we have seen time & again AND AGAIN her act this way. We can't give her the benefit of the doubt.

That woman in the store by the way? We go out for coffee all the time. She is a really great mother. :)

Also, what's with the "very loved" almost 11 yr old thing. She tries way too hard. It's like the posters on facebook who are always talking about their fabulous lives, perfect husband, enthralling vacation. It screams "look at me-I'm sooo happy" People who feel content don't need to prove it.

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

Those drive me as crazy as the ones who bitch, piss & moan about their lives. If you're so unhappy, FIX IT! And as you said, if you're life was soooo good, there would be no need to make it known. I agree Em!

It's like Kate, if she is so exhausted...DO something. Eat better. Go to a therapist. See a doctor. Take some herbs. Something!! Stop making life so hard on yourself on purpose. Pathetic. Life is what you make it. There is a way to be happy, no matter what curveballs are thrown at you. Think POSITIVE!

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

I agree and realized it immediately. They do not put a website address into articles unless they are trying to promote it. Kate might not have been aware that these particular negative images would go out, perhaps, but it's still PR.

There was no reason for a pap to be at the bus on that particular day, either, except that he knew she would be the one picking up the kids and so was informed ahead.

Date doesn't matter, either - it's the image.

anger issues kate said...

Perhaps, the pics were taken on the same day Kate mentioned her root canal. Since Kate said, she was trying not to taken anything for the pain(liar, she probably was drugged out, if she could be)So anything the kids did, good or bad(like maybe breathing) annoyed her. One could say that the pics of her yelling is how she really and truely her soul looks.(not pretty)
I had my laugh on her, in a recent article, about Kate pitching a travel show.
Why would anyone want to watch Kate travel, we already saw that on both shows. Who wants to watch a show that centers around one person, when we want to see the place they are going to, we don't want to see meltdowns every 5 mins, we also would like correct info on the places you travel to, not stuff that don't make sense or you have no info on and make it up, or listen to everything as hello/goodbye Mr this or Mr that, makes one sound stupid, and or complain about everything, and be rude to the people who work the mediocre jobs that Kate dislikes, so much, but wants them to shit all over her.

has she ever made it to a twitter party? she always backs out last minute. especially once old brownie started talking about video chats for the "favorites".

I have been coming to this blog for awhile now and I have been enjoying everything that happens to Kate. I will no longer delight in the misfortunes of others because I have experienced a job loss in the past week as well. It is frightening and it is soul-crushing. I am ashamed that I have been gleeful at Kate's source of income drying up.

Fido, okay, I get that.

I guess what is making me actually angry at some of the comments here is that Kate does not need a reason to be that pissed off/annoyed/angry with her children. She just is. All the time, over nothing.

This one hits a bit personal because I spent more than 6 years trying to convince one of my best friends that she hadn't DONE anything wrong, her mother was/is just an abusive bitch with a mental health problem. We worry here occasionally that one of Kate's kids will read what is said here and on other internet sites, and even though a huge part of any website, and really any good conversation, is making estimates and guesses, I can't help but think if any of them saw that guess they would blame themselves for their mothers constant anger. Even more than I'm sure they already do.

Kate even has to lie about how many CEU's she needs to renew her license. It's 30 every two years not every year as she tweeted. She incapable of telling a straight story about anything

Laurie said...

Wow Tamara - When I made the comment yesterday that maybe Kate was called in to a meeting at the school I DID NOT mean to imply that it was the kids' fault. I was just pointing out how a little thing like that would set her off in a major way. You're reading too much into some of the comments. I'm sorry if it opened an old wound of yours but my opinion is just that, my opinion.

Laurie said...

The old adage "If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?" may just apply to Kate here.

If the twins have a birthday and the cameras aren't there to film the party, does it really happen?

Yes, yes, I know that it was the tups parties that were usually filemed but we could apply this to anything that Kate claims to do, making "old grandma soup", fall decorating, etc.

I am so sorry you lost your job. It IS hard. I had to resign because of an illness ( Lyme ), and that just crushed me emotionally and financially.


However, Kate should've known from the start that her "job" was temporary. And she should've already had a big back up plan and/or saved the majority of the income from the show, KNOWING it would end. She did not. She chose to live as if the show would go on forever and money grew on her trees. She chose to live high on the hog, knowing her "talent" was being a bitch.

And I'm sure you would've never gone on public television and made an ass out of yourself like she does. She embarrasses her kids and makes no efforts to redeem her awful reputation. She STILL acts all haughty and better-than mediocre people. Kate knows her bad attitude and bad behavior are what made her rich and famous. So she just has to learn to accept the consequences that come along with that.

Please don't feel bad for one second for expressing your feelings about this woman who deserves everything she is getting.

You didn't deserve it.

But she absolutely deserves everything mean said about her. She put herself out there as this "person" knowing that her personality is controversial.


Good luck in finding another job. There is something perfect for you out there that you will just love. Hugs to you.

Kate behaves like an angry, mean girl. Nothing more. Has little to do with anyone except herself. If everything, including children, are not in line with whatever she wants or has to have, look out world. Mean, angry person...Period! It's all on tape. No surprise here.

Meagler said...

Kate posted a pic of her fall decorating... Is that a special dining room, or the one they usually eat at, because it no longer has the highchairs, it actually has real chairs, and what looks like cloth ones to book? If it is the table they eat at on a regular basis, I wonder if she has garbage bags take to the seat of the chairs? And does she threaten that if they get crumbs on the floor while eating they must be get down and clean it up speck by speck...???

Meagler said...

I should re-read my posts before posting.. I meant cloth ones to " boot", and are the garbage bags "taped" to the seats.

Administrator said...

She had children because you get attention when you're pregnant and have an infant.

-------

Tamara said...

No, Michelle Duggar gets pregnant 20 some times because she likes the attention you get when you're pregnant and have an infant, and the 'fun' of tiny babies. Kate is sooooo NPD she only likes the attention she gets from being pregnant with SIX babies and having SIX infants.

=========

No, I don't believe this is Michelle Duggar's reason for having so many pregnancies.

Disclaimer--I don't watch the Duggars, but as I've said before, being a longtime homeschool mom and former support group leader, I've encountered many large homeschooling families.

(Sorry to generalize.)

Typically, these families have so many children because they believe children are a gift from God and that it's not up to them to say when the child-bearing should cease. They let nature take its course, so to speak.

The families are often fundamentalist Christian (Protestant or Catholic), and operate much as old-time farm families did, with children expected to do chores. The families sometimes live on farmland with crops, orchards, and livestock to tend. I've known some to churn their own butter, make their own jams. Others join food co-ops to keep grocery bills low.

Sometimes the mother and daughters wear only plain dresses and no makeup. (Believing in modesty and non-adornment--the opposite of seeking attention.) They often homeschool because they believe God has given them the responsibility to raise their children upright and to teach them.

I see these families as sincere in their beliefs. They believe it, they do it! The moms are often super-organized, the children usually quite well mannered and hard working. For these families, it's definitely not an issue of pregnancy for attention. Kate is another story!

Unfortunately, to TLC the Duggars are a freak show. My only concern when I posted the Nat Enquirer article last week was that the Duggars may be straying from their fundamental values for $$. TLC will certainly egg them along, as we know, or even force them.

I know that my kids loved to help decorate and decide where they wanted to put our decorations.

Gosselin Gossip said...

Non-Gosselin related, but TLC/reality tv families related:
Little People, Big World returns tonight with its first special.

In a short interview, this is what Matt Roloff had to say about reality tv and his kids as well as how it impacted his family.

From Interview with Matt Roloff, Father on "Little People Big World"

The family photos are great. The kids are growing up and all of America has been following. Have the kids voiced how the TV show impacts their personal lives?

The kids have done amazingly well under the scrutiny of the TV show. I think they’ve done great. For the most part, our kids have a good time and focus on the good things in life. They are really well adjusted to the cameras around, but they have gone through normal kid-growing-up spells. They understand their life was going to be broadcast on TV with their crazy dad. They haven’t been influenced by a Hollywood syndrome. They are real life kids with real friends – the kids ignore the fandom and “celebrity” that might come with the show. Me, the dad, does what he can, to do different things and what makes sense – presenting opportunities to them. Camera or no camera, they aren’t particularly interested in being a celebrity.

What about you? From start to present, how has the show impacted your personal life? Is it better now than then and vice versa? Has it impacted your business life? Have you gained business?

I have always been a ham. I was first in the newspaper at age 10. I enjoyed the spotlight. This TV show is the epitome. I am honored to be able to give back through the show and blessed by the opportunities it has brought me and my family. It’s really been harder on the family. I brought the cameras into my house and kinda said, “this is going to happen,” and it wasn’t their first choice of life. It stressed the family and we had to make adjustments. It was hard to hear America chime in on every conversation we were having. We weren’t saavy to saying “no,” so we were stuck on a conveyer belt - not taking breaks that we much needed. We have now had months off and settled back into a normal life. The months we took off made a huge difference. We were able to reacquaint with the family.

Going forward, all decisions were mutually made with the network. A lot of people wondered, but it has always been mutually beneficial. TLC is a wonderful organization. They provide many options for us like visiting with other TLC families. We passed on the opportunities that didn’t fit, and now everything is ok. We [couldn't] be happier.

We’ve given TLC 40 days to film in a one year period. We are taking it one year at a time now. Multi-year contracts are not for us, we learned that through experience.

She is a Cow said...

Just wondering if the children have to THANK her everyday for taking the time to put up HER decorations??

The kids are obviously not allowed to help. Her tweet says the kids always NOTICE the new decorations. They are probably shun to the basement until she is done, which is why she should do it on a day when the kids are in school for 8 hours.

Her tweet also says Fall is here and I'M all decorated. What? Is she wearing a leaf wreath around her neck? She is such an ass.

_____
Marie, I said it before, right after her People article, where she was "freaking Out" that she will probably claim that the kids will not be able to trick or treat because it is too expensive. Enter all the dimwitted tweeties who will probably donate 8 costumes to the hag.

Warmth Of The Sun said...

That's her decorating??!! Took all but, what, five minutes to throw together! Kate, come see OUR decorations here in every room, front porch, mulch beds...takes US a week or longer to do. We've been on the Fall Tour of Homes. The kids help! Yes, decorations are OURS, not mine.
She is pathetic.

Anonymous said...

Because school personnel are mandated reporters, the elementary school I volunteer at meets occasionally with a social worker and police officers to discuss ways of dealing with abused children. One thing they always emphasize is that we should report abuse, but unless we are in a position to remove the child from the situation, we should not intervene unless the child appears to be in mortal danger at that moment, and then to proceed with caution. The reason both police and social services gives is that unless the child can be immediately removed, intervention by a well-meaning stranger puts the child in more danger. The abuser will blame the child for his/her embarrassment and inflict more abuse on that child. For most of us, it's counter intuitive not to intervene when we see a child being harmed, either physically or emotionally, but the professionals' explanations make sense. Scary.

Kate could have done so much and might have become Americas sweetheart mom, and a want talent(even if she could not dance, act or sing) in Hollywood and all over, but Kate got GREEDY! and became a FAMEHO DIVA! with no respect for anyone who did not go her way, and treated the rest of the MEDIOCRE people of the world(including her ex) like servants/garbage/crap, including those family members who most of us wish we had or more of. I have very few family members left and I am not married either.
As, for being unemployed, sorry to hear you lost your job, welcome to the club, I've been out 2 years. I'm either over qualify or under. One can't win, not even the lotto. Do not feel sorry for Kate, she made her bed, she should sleep in it now. Do not be fooled by the poor me routine, Kate has lots of money stashed away, plus child support she gets every month, according to Jon 11 bank accounts(if she lives high that is her fault). Pity & money is the last thing Kate needs, she needs a shrink or Susy Orman.

I'm guess Kate will no longer be able to afford the following for the kids:

Birthday getaways (or more than one birthday)
Christmas presents
Halloween costumes
Gymnastics
Camp

Yet she will somehow be able to afford the following for HERSELF:

Hair
Nails
Tans
Cars
NYC/LA getaways

Well Kate, I guess we now know where your true priorities lie

Beth, I'm sorry to hear about you losing your job. I know what it is like to lose a job through no fault of your own. My job was out-sourced to India a few years back (turned out to be a big mistake and the company moved the accounting department back to the United States six months later, but by then, I had found another job).

The key words above are you lost your job through no fault of your own. You are not in the same situation as Kate. Kate didn't lose her job, she was fired. She failed to bring in the ratings. She became unlikable, unmarkartable and too expensive to keep the show going.

She has over-extended herself. Kate is the one responsible for any financial struggles she may have.

I wish you luck in finding a new and better job. The unemployment office has a lot of resources, including reviewing/improving your resume. Helping you with job interviews and setting up interviews for you.

Beth, Carol said it very well.

I understand your empathy for Kate. I understand that you have far more important things to do now than participate in a blog about Kate. Go in peace, and may God bless you as you get your own life back in the balance you seek.

I'm not gloating that Kate lost her job. I'm happy her kids lost theirs, though.

One of Kate's male sheeples tweeted her, asking her what to do because he thought he broke his toe. She's a nurse, he said. She responded:

@TheAustinMartin ice and tape together to next toe with popsicle stick, elevate. I'm NOT a dr tho- so can't give advice :)

++++++

What the heck? She tells him what to do, and then puts out a disclaimer that she's not a doctor...AFTER she gives him advice.

Is she losing it?

Administrator said...

On what planet does she think it's a good idea to give advice about a BROKEN BONE she hasn't even seen????

Silly me I thought it was a given if you think you broke your toe, you shoudl CALL YOUR DOCTOR or better still, haul yourself down there.

You can't be careful enough about your feet. Way to go Kate you could be causing this guy permanent foot damage.

fidosmommy said...

Oh great. I can just see TheAustinMan walking to class with a popsicle stick poking straight out 3 inches from between his toes.

Maybe THAT's why the boys have such long shoes.
Making room for popsicle sticks!

Snark.

Beth, sorry about your job loss, but it does suck out there. I've been w/o a job for 2.5 years along with my husband who has had a few contracting jobs. I can hardly walk due to arthritis, which makes it about impossible to even go for a job interview. Oh ya, COBRA expired a long time ago. A simple ER visit run up $5,000 hospital bill for the hubby. If you are on the east coast, jobs are few and far between. Forget about it if you are over 50. Dismal and frightening. My job moved from CT to Chicago - so I was powerless to keep mine. High tech jobs are disappearing. Do not feel sorry for Kate. She does not need a 7000 square foot home with 6 bedrooms and 7 baths on 29 acres and 3 vehicles. The kids do not NEED that either. The kids need food, a warm bed and love. Those kids would look happier going to a local school and living with Jon in a 3 bedroom ranch.

@kateplusmy8 Hi Kate! Did the Sirius Radio email reach you? Love the fall decorations. :)

===

Third tweet about this in five days. Why doesn't she just e-mail Kate about it instead of putting it on public Twitter?

John had the kids this weekend. He tweeted that they played with the child of a friend, rode bikes, had a campfire. Nice to hear of normalcy!
