Kate's real wheels exposed: The struggling mother has the nerve to show up in an Audi sports car after telling People how worried she is about her financial future

Kate admits on Twitter she owns no less than three vehicles. 


Including this two-seater Audi she bought in April, which she claims will save gas. After insurance, fees, and maintenance, how does she figure?


 Which is it, Kate, are you rich, poor, or just plain stupid? This is why lawmakers have to write laws protecting the hard-earned money of children in the entertainment business, because parents just like her cannot be trusted to do it on their own. Congrats, Kate, you're why.

I vote for just plain stupid.

I just think INF beat Vogue for their stupid is as stupid does sleuthing.

Vogue exposing Kate wanting Nobu after crying on the Today show about her purseful of bills has nothing on this one.

Good job INF.

Administrator said...

She said she got it in April, around about when the Australia episodes were airing and giving VERY disappointing ratings.

It was probably a gift to cheer herself up. GOOD THINKING KATE, buy an expensive sports car just when the show is going down hill......so fucking smart!!!

Gaa this is the worst.

Bluenoser said...

I too vote for just plain stupid. Stupid as a stump, dumb as a post, dumb as a bag of hammers. That's Kate.

dee3 said...

I'm guessing that Kate thinks all of US are that stupid....so stupid that she can lie like a rug and then show everyone what big lies they are. That we are too stupid to put 2 and 2 together. That she can buy a sports car and while she cries poverty.

You have to be pretty darn delusional and self-confident....entranced with your own importance......to constantly prove that you are constantly lying......and think people won't notice. To not notice the contradictions. She probably thinks we would all buy swampland in Florida from her....or buy the Brooklyn bridge from her.

Administrator said...

Please don't discuss personal info about Kate's twitter-idiots, such as locations and ages, etc., even if they put them out there.

As for why this came out now, I wonder if INF sat on these photos waiting for some sob story from Kate about being poor to hit the press with these photos so people would be outraged and they'd get more hits. Or Kate could have kept the car in the garage knowing it would look bad....then chooses to bring it out right after People??? Actually none of this makes sense but there it is.

It probably doesn't make sense because Kate is a PR idiot and hasn't a clue how to ease this car into the story of her ridiculous life.

Problem with this thought id (A) Kate isn't that smart and (B) Kate isn't that smart. She is so clueless in terms of PR. Clearly TLC has washed their collective hands of her completely. She's now on her own to sink or swim and I think she is going to sink like a rock.

dee3 said...

"Actually none of this makes sense but there it is."

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

Right on the money. You couldn't make this stuff up if you tried.

fidosmommy said...

It's been cold the last several days where I am, and I'm far south of Kate. She's wearing her running clothes to some shopping place but does not look cold at all. I vote these INF pictures were taken many weeks ago and reserved for a time when people cared about Kate again - when her show was cancelled. It's the perfect springboard for conversation, isn't it?

TLC stinks said...

I bet INF has plenty of photos that we haven't seen. You hit the nail on the head. They waited and then POW!

JudyK said...

What I want to know is if Kate knocked down that sign she's parked in front of! If so, we can add it to her list of traffic infractions: ignoring no parking in fire lanes, hit and run, and speeding.

Westcoaster said...

Uneffing believable, nice little cougar car when you're crying to People about your future - you all are right, who could make this stuff up? Of course the image of Kate Coyne seeing these car pics as her asswipe issue hits the newstands is pretty good, just close your eyes and think about it. Apologies to anyone who might have just spewed coffee (too early for wine for most of us).

Look for some heaving twitting today as she is stuck at home with her children, schools closed because of rain and flooding. And stuck indoors as well, probably a good time as any to pull out the box of 200 movies.

And yes, upkeep on the Audi is not going to be cheap - it may be a newish used car but just routine maintenance will be hefty (this from my DH who puts it up there with BMW maintenance). Wonder if she has, the maker of all lists, made a list/schedule of "Whose Turn It Is To Ride With Mommy" in the cute car? Don't look for Shoka to be shotgun with her any time soon.

Jen said...

The Nobu thing was published in Vanity Fair, not Vogue.

TLC stinks said...

ROL never gets their facts straight and still had to put in the comment about Kate being frugal. I guess Chris Watts took the pictures for INF back in April but at the time were deemed not news worthy. But somebody remembered them and with all her poor mouthing, now the photos were sellable. Yeah, if she traded in two cars, somebody else needed to drive the extra vehicle to the dealer (Stevie poo). She is so transparent.

She is a Cow said...

Maybe these are the pictures/paparazzi she was complaining about on twitter a few days ago. At least this time there ARE pictures, unlike all the times she says she is followed or photographed and nothing ever shows up!

RE: The kid's day off from school, she is probably SEETHING that she is "stuck" with the 8. No time to sit her lazy ass on the leather couch and twit. Although, what am I thinking, this is Kate, why would she feel she should pay any attention to her kids. She is probably at the spa. Made her appointments as soon as she found out school was canceled.

AuntieAnn said...

JudyK said...

Ha! Think someone up there is trying to tell her something? The sign says "15 minutes" and look who knocks it over. Go away Kate. Your 15 minutes are up.

Tamara said...

Admin great recap. You managed to find the funny even in such a sad, disturbing episode.

To all the peeps in the Washington DC area, I hope you aren't floating and avoided the tornadoes.

JudyK said...

LOL @ Auntie Ann...yes, an omen for sure! On a sidenote, I had an email this a.m. from a good friend in North Carolina who said she has a friend in Wilmington whose relative works for a restaurant there. She said Kate, Steve and the kids have eaten there several times while doing Bald Head Island episodes for the show. The relative said it was obvious by the way Kate and Steve interacted that it was much more than a business relationship and that they had actually flaunted it the last time they were there.

Gabby2 said...

The only friends she has left are tweeters...I wonder how many are her alters??

...so where's Stevie?? And why only one diamond around her now now?

PatK said...

So it's NOT a convertible? lol

Was she parking in a 15-minute space to go into a store or to go jogging? Because if it was the latter, she was obviously going to be breaking the law once again.

I imagine she is gonna cry when she has to give up that one to put food on the table.

fidosmommy said...

So, if Kate and Steve are closer than client and professional bodyguard, then Kate was basically asking the kids if they want Steve to be their new Daddy? He doesn't look like a hobo so Aaden might like him OK. Oh, who knows? This will all come out in the wash one day anyway.

Gimme said...

This wouldn't bother people at all if she wasn't breaking her neck to get to Starbucks to pick up a gift card one of her poor twitter fans left for her, and if she was not encouraging (by not discouraging) her poor twitter fans to purchase food and backpacks and lunch boxes for her and the kids, because is crying poor. Hiding the fact that she bought a sports car the same day she had Iwanna send her the pic because the "girls" say it is time. What girls, the store-purchased ones that she carries on her chest? Didn't she get a speeding ticket in August? Someone needs to get a hold of that trust fund, because it will be gone in no time flat. Well maybe Ann will grow a pair, and ask her about the mmmhmmm sports car, when she brings her sob story to Today about how is she going to feed her kids. Despicable!

AuntieAnn said...

JudyK said... The relative said it was obvious by the way Kate and Steve interacted that it was much more than a business relationship and that they had actually flaunted it the last time they were there.

Judy - it doesn't surprise me at all. You and I and quite a few others here have said all along those two have been boinkin' in the bushes since before Jon and Kate split up but if they ever admitted to it, it would mean Kate would have to say that Jon's suspicions about them were correct... and we know THAT'S not gonna happen. Ever!!

Anon This Time said...

Including this two-seater Audi she bought in April, which she claims will save gas. After insurance, fees, and maintenance, how does she figure?

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

This is probably the only time I will defend her...sort of, at least when it comes to the savings on gas. She figures correctly. The LC she owned is a fabulous vehicle, built like a tank, mechanically probably the best car I've ever owned, but it is absolutely the worst gas hog I've ever seen. Unless you own one, you have no idea how often you visit the gas station. You get to know the service station employees quite well! I complain about it every day (but I love the car)! It's unbelievable.

What she will save in gas will more than make up for the insurance costs and maintenance. Hopefully the new car is still under warranty, which will help her considerably. I'm getting about 8-10 mpg; she can expect about 21-23 mpg. Big savings in the long run! If she has a multiple car policy, and homeowners insurance on the same policy, her car insurance on the Audi isn't going to be unaffordable.

However, a two-seater is not a wise idea. Been there, done that. I was tired driving a very large SUV around town, and thought it would be fun to get a small two-seater to tool around the area. I bought a wonderful little brand new anniversary edition sports car. If I was in the area of the school, running errands, having lunch with friends, or whatever, if it was close to the time to pick up the kids, I had to go home first and change cars! A sports car is not practical, no matter how you look at it. If I wanted to go out with friends, I couldn't be the driver. It was a hassle. I traded mine in after about four months.

All that said, when you cry poverty and fear for your financial future, you DO NOT drive around in a two-seater sports car. If you want a new car because you're tired of driving a large SUV just to get groceries, then you buy a small, economical car - get a Ford Focus - or you shut up about being poor.

Jessch said...

It just keeps getting better doesn't it?!
Which mother needs a car like that?! So she cannot spend money on gymnastics for the little money makers, but can buy a car like that.
I am so over this whole Katie Irene Kreider ...

When is she finally gonna let the Gosselin name go. She most def is NO Gosselin, she is a shame to anyone who knows her.

She is a Cow said...

I wonder if she has any advisors left to tell her how to spin this on the TODAY show. Does she still go into an interview with a list of questions that she will answer and strict instructions not to go off topic. It will be interesting to see just what Anne will ask her. How much could she say about her fear of the "unemployment unknown," when she is tooling around in a third car.

Although, some have mentioned that this may have been a taped interview from right before the hurricane. If that is the case, she has already probably spewed the same story as the People article and will prove herself a stupid, fool once again.

Here's the car she SHOULD be driving:

You just know Kate is looking at this picture and the only thought crossing her mind is, "Wow, my legs look GREAT!". Such a loser. There are no words...

AUNTIE ANN SAID: Ha! Think someone up there is trying to tell her something? The sign says "15 minutes" and look who knocks it over. Go away Kate. Your 15 minutes are up.

Brilliant, as usual. Actually I think you may have outdone yourself this time. Your observations are snap on.

gramof5 said...

Why are there never any reports of Steve lurking around Wernersville ? Does he never get a haircut, shop at the mall, fill up the Queens new sportscar,or make a run out to McDonalds ?
Does he wear a disguise when he ventures out ?

Westcoaster said...

Oh right, forgot how much she was whining about the costs of gymnastics/summer camps/vacations (not paid by TLC) at the beginning of the summer; now the world finds out that this was AFTER she bought a SPORTS CAR in APRIL. Reality cannot get more real. Sorry Katie, lots of other options for non-gasguzzlers out there for you, no one is going to buy this story.

Hoosier Girl said...

Kate has no sense (common or otherwise), no shame, no humility. I can guarantee we will all be treated to her

'I'm POOR, I have EIGHT (count'em 8) kids to support as a SINGLE parent, all ALONE, with NO HELP ...'

for years to come unless she gets those kids working again.

Lucky for her ... her sheeple will provide! Ego boosts, love chats, tender tweets, wool and expired organic cereal! :)

PatK said...

I've read the People scan at Pressi's, and Kate says Steve will be staying around. Something about him being such a good friend/road manager. So who will be paying him? Or will he be paid in other ways? lol

Carol said...

I'm not sure if this is correct information, but while reading some of the comments on the INF site, someone said that the inspection sticker says 6/12 which would mean the car was purchased in June or July.

When I enlarge the picture, I still can't make out the "6".

Red Sky At Night said...

"I've read the People scan at Pressi's, and Kate says Steve will be staying around. Something about him being such a good friend/road manager. So who will be paying him? Or will he be paid in other ways?"

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

Yeah...his payment will be untouched-by-human-hands pizza every day.

What's he going to road-manage? Kate's trips to pick up expired cereal?

Gabby2 said...

From eonline...lol:

And, now that Kate Plus 8 will soon be minus a network, she's going to use what's left of her 15 minutes spewing bile on the daddy of all those adorable kids.
Grab a spoon...

Hate-filled, vindictive, barely hiding a deep, bubbling fury camouflaged by well-practiced passive-aggressive sarcasm and heavily telegraphed facial expressions of contempt, maybe. But jealous? Come on.

Vanessa said...

Of course Steve will be "staying around", they're going to eaaase him into the soap opera she calls her life.

silimom said...

It's interesting that People put in the sports car reference at all. Perhaps Kate knew pics had been taken and this was her attempt at damage control. Or is People starting to call her out on things as well?

Vanessa said...

NO WAY that the new Audi purchase will save her in gas what her insurance/maintenance was costing her. NO WAY! A less expensive vehicle with the same mpg possibly, but not an import. Maybe a Toyota, Honda, Mazda...but an AUDI 2 SEATER SPORTS CAR?? Doesn't jive.

Hoosier Girl said...

I think Steve will be gone just as soon as he's sure she's used up. Much like K8, he's just another 'big star' wanna be. He'll soon be out looking for someone else's coattails to latch onto.

If I'm wrong and they really are an item ... Is he a US citizen? Can we deport him and have him take K8 with him?! Oh pretty pretty pretty please! (sorry kiwis!)

Bubbles said...

Good questions, gramof5. He'd blend in pretty well in a crowd, though. It would be easy for him to wear a ballcap and sunglasses and people wouldn't pay him much attention.

What I'm wondering is, if he & Kate really are an item, what's he doing while she's on twitter all day and half the night? And if they are involved, what the hell is wrong with him?

Anonymous said...

@Anon This Time -
I'm sorry but I disagree with several of your points. I don't think she'll be saving much in gas money as I am sure the Audi TT requires premium gas. While she might get better mileage, she'll be spending more to fill the tank. I also disagree with your statement re the cost of insurance. For someone who has multiple speeding tickets, I am sure the cost of insurance is not cheap, particularly for a sports car. Further, maintenance on European cars is extremely expensive. As a BMW owner, I can tell you that a brake job will run you $1500+ and a new set of high profile tires (that will only last 20,000 miles) can cost $1600. These are just regular maintenance items - just imagine if something with the engine actually goes wrong! And finally, how practical is that car in snowy conditions?

barbee said...

so what was all the crap about her spotted in a convertible? who cares if he is her boy toy? why do people expect better of her? we have all those seasons, episodes, whatever of her proving she is incapable of any better!!!!!! !!

AuntieAnn said...

Bluenoser - aw thanks. But that witch is as easy to read as a kindergarten primer. Ironic though isn't it that she'd park in front of that. Karma has its ways, the signs are all there and Kate's not seeing them... lol.

Kate forgot to mention purse carrier, chauffer, canoodling partner, babysitter and meltdown monitor. In other words - Jon's old job.

mama mia said...

If Kate was getting sex from Steve or anyone she wouldn't be starving herself thin, running herself ragged, tweeting all night and wobbling around town in shorts and stilettos. The woman is not getting any, and she is angry, and she is frustrated.
Steve was her plan when she ditched Jon - she who never quits anything without having something else lined up - but he is likely as repulsed as we are, cause he is educated and she is not, he speaks English, she doesn't, he reads, she can't, you get the picture.
I get the impression Steve too wants a tv career and enjoys the spotlight. No doubt he will stick around for as long as that lasts.
And remember, kids don't easily lie, the crew has often asked them questions that would put Steve in Kate's tent, RV, hotel room, etc and they never mention him there.

Hoosier Girl said...

http://rumorfix.com/2011/09/exclusive-jon-gosselin-gives-kate-gosselin-some-tough-love/

Though I'm loathe to see him respond to anything K8 says or does ... good for Jon on this one! All those things I said above that K8 lacks ... Jon has! :)

Dwindle said...

That car in a PA winter. Not gonna work. It's really just going to be her summer car. Isnt that nice.

Wonder if the Today show will push her about it. BWAHAHAHAHAHA! yeah, sorry, I lost my mind there for a minute.

I think all her talk about the things she cant afford for the kids means she is spending their money. She cant afford gymnastics out of THEIR money, milk comes out of THEIR money, the luxury cars come out of "KATE'S" money, so it's ok.

Well, hurry hurry Mr and Ms Reality Show Executive Producers (the ones with 'name credit'), hire Katie Irene to flaunt on some show; she has a mansion plus a garage full of cars to support.

8countem8 said...

"This is too much fun not to find a way back."

Uh-huh. Either Kate is more desperate than I thought. Go ahead Kate, ask your children down the road if they had fun being filmed at inappropriate times, if your children had fun redoing scenes until they got it right. Ask your children if they had fun on the not-reality Christmas.

No way in hell can this be fun for anyone BUT you. It's fun for you because you are to lazy to get off your butt and find a real job, 12 hour shift nursing job or not--suck it up! You know what I hear? Whine, whine, whine. I thought that's what kids do? Go ahead, search for reality TV or something in the industry I guarantee she won't last 5 minutes on her own with out her 8 count'em 8 kids. Please!

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

I couldnt agree more! Which is why I think there is a show in the works somehow, with Steve it in. They are trying to sell it anyway.

She dumped Jon in such a heartbeat because Steve was leading her on in order to control her behavior. But I often think of Mr. Spock's quote: "... having is not so pleasing a thing... as wanting." For Katie, the excitement comes in the wanting (Jon, babies, money, Steve) not in the having.

I disagree, but that's okay - I had foreign sports cars all my life, and I know exactly how much maintenance is required on them. It depends on the car. It depends on where you take them for maintenance. It depends on how diligent you are about maintaining them. If there's still a warranty on it, there shouldn't be a problem, at least not initially.

Premium gas is suggested, but not required. I never use premium on my LC, nor on sports cars. She will be saving money on gas and insurance. I sat down and figured it all out, and the savings weren't just minimal. I can pretty much ballpark the insurance she will be paying; I just took out new policies on my cars (I'm in PA), and if she has all of her cars and home owners covered under one policy, her speeding tickets aren't going to greatly affect the cost.

If I were Kate (thank goodness I'm not), I wouldn't have bought a two-seater sports car, but would have opted for a small, fuel-efficient American-made sedan. But, then she couldn't zip around in sports car. Sounds like a mid-life crisis to me...about fifteen years premature.

Gabby2 said...

Kate wants the "ring" from Stevie....that's why she is so desperate...me thinks.

mama mia said...

Jon foiled the sheeple yet again. They accuse him of selling stories to the tabloids, here is Kate selling hers to People, and lying as usual. Love how Jon used to rumor fix to set the record straight - I am paying child support, I see my kids as much as the court allows me to see them, I am restrained from speaking by the courts. So sheeple, all those lies Kate has been spewing about being the sole provider, the single parent, bullshit. Nobody feels any sympathy that she is now unemployed by the Reality TV soul sucking child destroying industry.

New Hampshire said...

I would say Steve wanted the two seater sports car. Or Kate wanted it for him. Room for two.

Wonder what her Krieder relatvie has to say about this wrench thrown in the mess on Twatter?

How dare she do this. Crying poor mouth, can't afford gymnastics, etc. But she can tool around in a fancy car.

mama mia said...

Anyone else notice the sheeple blogs are now begging for posters, claiming they never deleted anti-Kate posts, or censored opinions, or interfered in open discussions and debates. It is comical. I think most of us are here because at one point in time we tried posting over there and either got blocked, deleted, edited or attacked. So Sageway Express and Imperfect Women, read it and weep, another poster says it is so.

Yes, but she's never satisfied with anything either and that would include Steve's bedroom performances. Maybe she's just keeping him around until he gets it right, which I'm sure she's told him he never will.

Come on now, if it walks like a duck and all that...

:o)

Michelle said...

Her arrogance is truly astounding. Her comment in the People article about the kids commenting on no more trips and how "for them, no more job for Mom means no more trips, no more fun" shows her ego in full force.

It was "her job" and she will never sway from that stance. Does she really think TLC would have come knocking on her door with millions for The Kate Show? Will she ever get that she owes everything to the "plus 8"? Of course not. She birthed the plus 8, so they and everything they do are hers to claim as her own accomplishments.

She really didn't see the cancellation coming! REALLY? Is she so narcissistic that her own falling ratings didn't hit her radar screen or she didn't bother to look at them or she thought she was just so special her ratings didn't matter?

She truly would have filmed the crap out of those kids until they turned 18 if she had her way. All the while claiming she was providing for them.

She makes Donald Trump look like a humble man.

Virginia said...

Remember after the split, Jon bought the sports car and the sheeple went CRAZY saying how irresponsible it was, what a bad dad he is...how will they explain this one?

"JudyK said...Steve interacted that it was much more than a business relationship and that they had actually flaunted it the last time they were there."

Don't forget the reporter from Huffington post that saw them 'touching knees" on the beach while at Bald Head? Apparently, they did not try to hide much at all. If it is true about them, which I am leaning more and more to that, she is truly scum. Her BFF was/is his wife? They were ohhh so close.

$$$$$$$$$$

And for Anon this Time -- K8 herself said it's not a new car. New car warranty isn't relevant.

Insurance costs alone will be horrendous for this little number, especially with her driving record.

Beyond that, THE KIDS' MONEY BOUGHT IT. A two-seater car for cougar mama.

Cougar mama who whined that she can't afford gymnastics for the kids because the classes were too expensive.

No Regrets said...

Kate's car is also a convertible.Convertibles are VERY expensive as far as insurance goes. Some insurance companies will not even insure them any longer.

liar liar said...

The Audi TT Roadster is a convertible with a retractable hard-top. It just looks like a standard vehicle.

There aren't any back seats because that's where the hard top slides when it's retracted.

No Regrets said...

"And for Anon this Time -- K8 herself said it's not a new car. New car warranty isn't relevant."

Not to argue at all. This is not necessarily true. It could be a dealers car they use to drive for advertising new cars, it would considered "used" due to the mileage put on the car. I know, we bought a 'used' car this way. It could still be a 2011 even, and used. Still under warranty. I seriously doubt that that car is old by any means.

Think how much money she would have saved if instead of trading in her SUV for another SUV and a sports car she traded it in for the cheaper SUV and SAVED the rest of the money. She just comes across as stupid by claiming she got TWO cars as a way to save money.

JudyK Yep, when was the last time anyone heard anything about Gina?"

The last I heard of Gina and any photos released were the photo op pictures that the entire family spent with Kate for a holiday about 2 YEARS ago.

Even Chris took pictures of the 4th of July last year, I think, saying that Steve and his boys spent the holiday with Kate. NO mention of Gina And NO pictures of her, ONLY Steve and the boys. That is where she had the photo of the nearly nude bikini running her yard. LOL

I wonder if, Kate was driving this car when she got that recent ticket? I already read some of the comments, about Kate getting a new car and they are not pretty. I also notice, none of the sheeple Kate loyalist, have been defending her, on any of the media websites, either. None for the RV trip, or the car. You all know which ones I'm talking about, they think Kate is God and can't do no wrong. So where are they, have they seen the light? This will certainly not sell People magazines, with Kate on it, remember the last one, it did not do well. This makes Kate look like a 100% liar and greedy, about money and everything else. Scored no points, especially in the poor me got no money department. The fact she is not downsizing, not pulling the kids out of private school, not stop going to tanning, spa, NYC to get hair done, etc, screams LIAR you do have lots of money, and the rumours that you made 2-3 million this year are right on the spot.
Did anyone watch the Jon interview? Rumour x?, YOU GO JON! With you 100%!

@Kateplusmy8 Kate, luv the car! By the time Cara and Mady start driving, U could pass the car down to them-perfect for two teens in 11th gr.

Sure, smart! A luxury sports car, convertible! Sure a PERFECT car for teens in the 11th grade. Are you people ALL this daft?? Nevermind. I know the answer. Imagine the insurance costs of a teen, let along in this car??

...
Not to mention the extremely high rate of deaths/accidents involving teen drivers. The stupidity is mind boggling.

Tucker's Mom said...
Bravo Jon! His Rumorfix interview was polite and succinct. I'm so proud to be among others here who have had faith in Jon, while others have continued to lord Jon's Ed Hardy phase over his head for years now. As we've been saying all along, Jon had a bad spot at the end of his marriage. But, he recovered and got his moral compass back.
Watch the video and see Jon's eyes light up when he talks about his kids! I hope his message to Kate is heard, and that is, Reality Tv is NOT a career.
Nursing is a career, and people all over make due with modest incomes. I've read more great memories here and other boards, about wonderful childhood experiences that were born of love, frugality and happiness, not ephemeral jaunts around the globe, to and fro etc.
I'm so happy Jon responded to this utter bullshit that Kate's been peddling. It was appropriate, non-inflammatory and respectful.
Here's something decidedly not respectful, but true: Kate, if Spencer Pratt, a douchebag among douchebags, a fame whore extraordinaire, realizes that Reality TV is not a career, and who is younger than you with more potential to draw villain-loving viewers than you, then why can't you see that the responsible thing to do is realize this is a marathon, not a sprint. Nursing is a wonderful career, with security, good pay and excellent benefits. No one, and I mean no one is buying your insistence that you will be working 12 hour shifts every day. There are so many 9-5 options. How about home nursing care? Work at a doctors office? Go into pharmaceuticals, which ABOUND in PA. The possibilities are long.
How about using your money to further your degree and go into management? I'll stop typing now as Kate will insist this just isn't possible, but we all know it is.
Also, I notices that Jon doesn't seem to be panicking or bellyaching about how on earth he will support his kids. He's got a plan, and he know what the kids really need, and it ain't a 24 acre farm ;-)

Reality Bites said...

IMHO I think a lot of people are missing the point that Steve Neild would never have stuck around without being paid the big bucks to do so. He's not going to suddently step back and stop promoting Gosselin - the woman IIRC he once declared looked good in her bikini. If anything, he's going to take a more aggressive managerial role to ensure Kate Gosselin stays in TV and he keeps making a good living to support his own lifestyle, nevermind enabling Kate to keep shopping and pampering herself in the manner she's grown accustomed to. That's my take on this anyway. His wife should kick his scrawny butt to the curb. Enough is enough IMO.

I just can't see anything sexual in Khate's "relationship" with Steve. She is too anti-men, and also seems asexual. Someone whom thinks sex is icky and annoying. Though I'm sure she thinks she and Steve are in some kind of romantic relationship. I haven't seen any of the episodes with him, but from recaps, discussions here, and the occasional photo, he definitely doesn't seem attracted to her. Sexually or just friendly.

What is his on camera relations with the kids?

What poetic justice if that were the case and he had to go and take a bodyguard job with another rogue celebrity, leaving the good wife sitting at home.

I'm sure the sheeple will blame Jon again for what he said and say: I thought Jon was not going to give another interview. Jon actually threw Kate under the bus, and this time Kate and sheeple can't call foul. Cause what Jon said is the truth, whether Kate likes it or not. Kate has been parading around that she and she alone has been supporting her kids. I love what Jon said about the house & land, it's Kate's responsiblity, and that the kids are very happy to be with him. Kate can't hang Jon for the property, as Kate says mine, mine, mine, all mine! well Kate you got it! Love Jon's interview. He stuck to Kate!

No Regrets said...

Jon spoke the absolute truth. Many people DO work normal jobs and survive just fine. The BS she has always said about needing the show to support them is just that. It is to keep her in her rock star lifestyle. I don't want to see anyone going broke, but she won't. I have no doubt. Jon knows it too.

So what if he gives interviews. He is making money, I hope, and never fear the courts will take fair share for the kids. So why are the fans complaining? Stupid people.

SuzyQ said...

She is such a paradox, speaking out of both sides of her mouth again in the People rag article. She claims she would "work her fingers to the bone" to support her family, then later on states that she would only go back to nursing if nothing else comes up but that it would be too much work doing 12 hour shifts. So, which is it? Work hard or not?

I also find it loathsome that she always refers to herself as the sole supporter or a single parent when she is actually receiving child support and shares the parenting with the children's father. So convenient to forget about him when talking about money, but she'll be glad to bash him later on in an article or an interview!

Cammie said...

I remember reading when I first started to look into Kate's background, that she was obbessed with the McCaughey 7 before she had her fertility treatments. That she may have even named 2 of her kids after the them (Alexis and Joel). I wish her final stop on her cross country trip could have been to thier house in Iowa. I think Bobbi could have given Kate a few lessons. The McCaughley's update the public ever few years but they still seem very grounded and they do not need bodyguards, matching clothes, nannies or 5+ cars etc to live well. They still go to churcha nd the kids seem well adjusted. So Kate it can be done!

Mary said...

A plus for Kate for buying a 2 seater - she now can use that as an excuse for not taking the kids with her when she goes out.

Dwindle said...

People.com is running the interview Jon gave.

Ya know, it occurs to me that with the revelation of this car, Kate's arrogance has indeed reached new heights. In fact a case could be made that her arrogance has reached such a disconnect from reality (she is sooo worried about money that she goes out and buys a luxury sports car?) that she TRULY isnt able to raise the children. Up until this, it was all open to intrepretation that she would have lied her way out of. But there is no lying about this: she is disconnected from reality and has no comprehension of the consequences of her actions. Literally. no. mental. comprehension.

How she is managing the children's money should catch the attention of that pro-money judge.

Forget the reality show for a minute. Let's say she is a nurse working in a specialty hospital. Census is down, they are closing wings and laying folks off and the rumors are swirling that they are about to close this hospital. Kate goes on a rampage boohooing that they cant DO that to her, she has kids to feed, cant afford milk, boohoo. Then she buys this car, an EXTRA car, a luxury sports car, and has the nerve to sob even louder when they do indeed close the hospital the following month and she is out of a job. She knew the layoff was coming, she just never thought it would affect HER somehow. Disconnect.

Whether the car is another sypmtom of her self-involved arrogance ('society OWES me!') or a symptom of a manic buying spree, the truth is she is in need of mental health treatment and not capable right now of raising young children.

I get it but I dont get it. How has she lived to the age of 36 without ending up in prison?

K8 does not want to hear from you any more. That's why she dumped you on her manager. Come to think of it, maybe K8's manager doesn't want to hear from K8 any more.

thankyoufairy said...

I don't think she is going to save money with the trade. She is still driving the SUV any time she is carrying more than one child around so she isn't swapping all of her low mpg driving for high mpg driving. Also, instead of insuring, registering and maintaining two vehicles, she is covering the fixed cost on three vehicles. My brother bought a Honda Civic when gasolene hit three dollars a gallon for his commute to work. He was driving a large truck. He told me that he added everything up (extra insurance, car registration, taxes, maintenance costs) and subtracted the savings in gas. At that point he was breaking even. Luckily Hondas have good resell value or the depreciation expense would have negated any savings.

Kate, on the other hand, isn't commuting to work every day. Also, she is still going to drive other vehicles for some of the day-to-day driving (dropping off kids at the bus stop). I don't think she is going to see much in savings at the pump.

I am confused. People magazine has been pro-K8 for so long, unjustifiably so...but I just went to the website to read an article about the Home Improvement cast, only to see a picture of Jon with quotes from the rumorfix interview. I haven't read either Gosselin article so I can't be sure, but it sure looks like they're trying to play both sides against the other.

With the fall of K8 the Great, could K8 Coyne be far behind? (I hope, I hope.)

Sports car is no surprise to me. Remember, Beth drove a little 2-seater when she and Kate went to the spa. Always trying to keep up, Kate! Such a poor role model, don't you think? Yes, Kate was obsessed with the 7 kids born in Iowa and carried around Bobbie's book. These are facts recorded over time.

I only hope that somebody on Today will call her out, but don't expect it. Liar, liar, pants on fire is the Kate I think I know. Obvious, very serious want-to-be issues are continuing to come to light with this woman. It's not pretty. She would get more positive attention if she would just spend her money on therapy and be a "real" mother to her kids. Those kids are the only reason she was ever on television. Kate needs to acknowledge the fact to herself and make the necessary changes.

I, too, reverse the People magazines whenever I see her on the covers.

__________________

Sorry for my naivety, but why is Steve banging Kate? I've never thought those two were a couple; I always thought of him as her personal babysitter and handler for when she flies off the handle. No man in his right mind would ever date Kate; was he doing it just for the money?

Mandy said...

I'm totally guilty of speculating about Kate, as most of us will admit to, but I have to say that some of the speculation goes a little too far and doesn't do wonders for our side. I really don't think for a second someone took a compromising photo of Kate and Steve in the campground. She just likes to throw her weight around and likes to watch her man do it for her. Do you think for one second Steve would have let that photo go if it were revealing?? Of course not! I'm speculating he was just sick of her like everyone else.

Incidentally, someone mentioned the article written when the family was on Bald Head Island. Here it is:

Also, regarding pizza-gate: People actually EAT pizza with their bare hands, Kate! What's the big deal about handing it to someone with bare hands? I agree, she was just ticked off that she didn't have control over the food. I kinda blame the whole thing on Jamie- if she hadn't taunted Kate about the pizza and fries in the first place, that wouldn't have happened. I hope not, anyway. But knowing Kate, she would've found something else to whine about. It's ironic, she never seems happy unless she's unhappy and complaining about something.

HBailey said...

Someone commented earlier that all Kate would say about the photo is "wow, my legs look great!" - and I would have to say, they DO look great! She is not an unattractive person physically (although she is looking worse for the wear in the face because she uses tanning beds). It's too bad her inside doesn't match her outside. She's such a rude, entitled and just hateful person that any outside appearance that may be attractive is completely overshadowed.

As far as her denying her kids things because she says she can't afford them, while I certainly don't believe children should have everything and anything they want, her crying poor about anything is just absurd.

My mother in law is a classic narcissist like Kate and it's absolutely not surprising at all that she will in one breath say she's freaking out about how she can afford to support her children and giving the impression she's hurting financially and then turn up the next day with a very expensive and unnecessary vehicle (or any other expensive item). This is CLASSIC NARCISSISM! She has absolutely no regard of anyone else in her life - including her children. It's all about her at all times. Other people are merely puppets for her and once she's done with them, she moves on to new puppets who are unaware of her ways.

A big thank you to Preesi, whose vast archive of Kate magazine scans allows us to check out Kate's latest lies without giving the publication a penny. At another blog, people would ask for the links to Preesi's site for the magazine scans, but when someone tried to post them they would be moderated.

I read the article and the resulting nausea comes pretty close to the horrible morning sickness I suffered with my 2nd DS. Let me summarize: "the kids lost privacy but we live on an estate." "I could work as a nurse but there's no way in hell I'm giving up my rock star lifestyle- so nursing, not so much." "downsizing is not an option" "even though I've lost my job, my focus is only on the material items I stand to lose" "I'm not willing to explore or consider other job opportunities, I only want to work in entertainment because it provides the income I need for my bling-bling lifestyle." She came off as such a self-absorbed money grubbing wench. She is a fool for thinking the show would go on forever and not having a contingency plan.

@ALacianca I'd rather be running.... Far far away from Rvs lol.. Just kidding. I'd do one again..with my kids But minus the friends :)

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

Ouch! No problem, Kate. You don't have to worry about doing it with friends because you don't have any left...just paid help, and even they most likely wouldn't want to go with you!

The sticker on the car - PA inspection runs a year. If it's 6/12, it means the next inspection is due next June. If she bought it used in April, it could very well be that the then-current inspection was still good in April, and would not expire until 6/11, and was due for an inspection in June, which she then had done.

Based on the series of calls I've had this morning (the AP and MSNBC) I'd say our efforts are bearing fruit. Lordy, it's HOT in Socal. Best, Paul Petersen

Here's hoping that Kate's Kar has caught the attention of the AP and MSNBC and they are looking into her mismanagement of the children's money.

I think it's hysterical that Kate shows up with her new sports car just as the People article is coming out with her"freaking out" She's also supposed to be on the Today show Monday with more whining I'm sure. As far as her bitching about how as a nurse she would have to work 12 hour shifts every day, blah, blah that's a load of crap. I have been divorced for many years with 4 children and have working VNA which is home. You arrange your own schedule so I worked during the day after I dropped the kids off and was done with time to spare before I had to pick them up. The paperwork is typically done on a work issued computer which you can do at home. The pay is very good as are the benefits and you usually work close to your home town. That's one of the benefits of nursing overall is that the hours are so flexible you can do nights, weekends etc, at a variety of different settings. To be quite honest I pity the poor patients if she ever did go back. I wouldn't want her taking care of me.

When she talks about Steve in the article she says: "...he is always going to be with us. He AND HIS WIFE are friends...everything we went through was hard on BOTH OUR FAMILIES". Just WTF?! When I read the "he and his wife are friends" I took it to mean that they are both friends of Kate's, however, could she mean that Steve and Gina (although broken up) are friends? Everything they went through was hard on both families? Does she mean stealing another woman's husband? Yeah, that would be hard on his family. She speaks so cryptically it's hard to tell what the hell she means.

8countem8 said...

Doesn't Kate know, honestly that not all reality TV folks make it must last as long and as good as she did? Reality TV seems to be for those people who want a shot as a star but fall a few feet too short to reach actually TV shows.

I hope she can suck it up and return to nursing but that just means she might actually have to, ya know, be nice to people. You can get a pretty seedy reputation as a nurse if you aren't nice to people who come in for visits.

She isn't doing anything illegal. What she's doing is IMMORAL, but NOT illegal.

You can beg all you want as long as you're not on the street accosting people in a city where there's an ordinance against it.

If stupid people want to buy boxes of cereal or backpacks for a woman who is jobless, but just bought herself a sports car with her children's money, they have a right to do so, and she's perfectly within her rights to lie to them all she wants.

It's a free country. Except for K8's enslaved children, of course.

PA Inspection said...

If the car was used, the date on the inspection tag is probably irrelevant. We have two cars we bought used with inconvenient inspection dates (one we only use in summer, but inspection is middle of winter), and the date of sale didn't affect the inspection schedule at all.

In PA, the inspection tag expiration dates usually have nothing to do with the date of sale.

I noticed in the article that Kate thinks she has mellowed over the years. I'd sure like to hear her explanation of that.

Audible Click said...

A Cautionary Tale

Kate lounges on the bed in the room known as Kate's Lair. Scented candles cast soft light as romantic music provides the perfect background. Outside the door, footsteps are heard. Kate quickly fluffs her few remaining hairs and pulls "the girls" from underneath her arms. Steve opens the door clad only in a very short robe. In his rather high pitched voice (think Olive Oyl) he exclaims " Kate my Darl...A loud screech erupts from Kate's mouth as she leaps from the bed, almost tripping, while "the girls" try to escape from her black Target baby-doll nightie. Still screeching she flaps her hands at him in a shooing motion. "You know the rules you have to knock and get my permission to enter!"

Steve backs away slowly, he tries for a macho expression but the fear in his eyes gives him away. He slinks out the door and closes it as Kate sits on the edge of the bed and waits, arms folded around "the girls". He knocks softly on the door and Kate warbles out a "Yes?" trying for sultry and sexy but sounding more like she has a sore throat and head cold. Steve takes a deep breath and closes his eyes "I'm here, Mistress, may I enter and feast upon your beauty?"; Kate thinks about this for a few minutes as Steve nervously checks his breath and reties his robe sash five times before making a perfect square knot. "Yeah, alright c'mon in." her nasally voice penetrates the door and his head like the whine of a dentists drill. The rather short, squeaky voiced "manager" steps hesitantly through the door and warily approaches the "stah".

"Well?" tap tap, tap go those Lee Press On Nails against the faux wood of the nightstand."Oh my darling Kate, I..."Hold it! Stop right there! You are required to say "My darling, precious Kate". I'll let it go this time but don't slip up again on penalty of severeness." Steve keeps his face carefully blank as he takes a deep breath and bows his head. The nail tapping ends as Kate claws a list from under the pillow. "OK, I want Nobu for dinner tonight." Steve's adams apple bobs up and down as he swallows a scream. "Darling precious, we can't afford Nobu but I put some fish sticks in the oven and"...he's interrupted by Kate as she flings herself from the bed and clomps towards him with blood boiling and hands clenched into fists. She raises her clenched hand and waves the list at him "I have this list you must do the things on this list! What kind of manager are you? The preschoolers and twins need to be working, right now!" The little man gazes at the angry, almost bald harridan and, in a quavering voice, says "It's 2020 Kate, the kids left ages ago and we have no money or self respect left...

Kit said...

Wayward, I agree with your 'sediments' of the People mag article and for the very first time since she's been in mags, I believe everyone will have her number. Her ignorance and greed were soooooo transparent that anyone who spends the 3 minutes to read her actual analysis of her TLC experience will have a very clear understanding of her priorities (hint for the slow on the uptake: they're not about the kids).

I am finally allowing myself to believe that she will really and truly be off tv come next Tuesday (well, original episodes). Who knows - if TLC dumped her because of withdrawn sponsorship, maybe everyone will be lucky and she won't even show up in repeats; doesn't affect me either way - TLC is irredeemable.

Anonymous said...

Why is she being invited to be on, The Today Show, again, as a guest? That should be canceled. Enough is enough? The American people, and many abroad and Canada, have spoken, and the majority have stated this is not what they want. People Magazine is a huge disappointment as well. None of the magazines or networks are listening to the real people. The one's who support their sponsors and their causes, their shows or magazines. When did it change for the worse and stay that way? We have no say? No voice in so much wrong doing? There are so many more people (real people), sincere stars or celebrities who worked endlessly after 911, who deserved to be on the cover of People this week. Someone who would have been honored and humble. So many other wonderful and sincere people to choose from to be a guest on the Today Show. Her show is gone, her personal life in shambles, and she has nothing to offer bad or good. However, she is being allowed to use these two huge forums as her own personal platform to beg for a job and money and _______, what will it be this time on the show? Certainly not forgiveness.

After reading the People article and what Kate has said, I hope TLC goes back to edit the hell out of the final weepy buh-buy episode and throws Kate under the bus by showing all the footage they left on the floor.
How the hell does she not know the show will end at some point and that the kids will have to transition?
Any sane parent would assuage a child's fear by soothing them, telling them everything will be OK and not to worry, Mommy AND DADDY will be fine and work everything out.
But no, Kate will work her fingers to the bone (and you better damn well be grateful) for you but it might not work out. Who the hell burdens kids like that and why hasn't she been preparing the kids all this time?
I think I'll be surprised if anyone reputable wants to work for her.

_____________________________________________

Admin, here's a link (credit to Preesi) from a Reading blogger who claims to have called the PA Atty General about J&Ks love offerings. They had 4 speaking engagements from Sept. '08 until the time they closed on the konpound about six weeks later. While they weren't claiming to be looking for change in the couch anymore at these engagements, allegedly they still alluded to having a very tight budget and not knowing how they would send their kids to college. All while they were closing on a 1.3 mil home. The blogger claims the PA AG office declined to pursue it. He's kind of a kooky guy, this Matt and who knows if he even actually made the call. But nonetheless, it was another person who noticed this for farce it was, not just another jellus hat8er.

No gag order said...

Laurie said...

Do you think that TLC may have released Jon from his gag order long enough to allow him to make this statement as a final FU to Kate? I've often thought the INF was in TLC's pocket and I have to wonder if TLC gave them to go ahead to print the pictures to contridict her "poor me" article in People. Another big FU to Kate (and I don't mean Felix Unger)!
_______________

The gag order Jon was under by TLC ended with long ago plus Jon's done other interviews before this one. Jon "may" still be under some sort of confidentiality clause from the old TLC contract but it would only pertain to filming details and TLC, etc.

What Jon talked about on Rumorfix was about custody, etc and is free to speak unless prohibited by Family Court and those rules apply to Kate also. Jon has chosen to follow the rules about details about the kids, but the same can't be said about Kate.

THAT is absolutely correct -- People does pay for pictures - how do I know -- THEY TOLD US when they were around the neighborhood many years ago AND they had the story about Kate's dysfunction years ago and while the neighborhood didn't agree with Jon's actions at the time, we understood his need to escape her -- you have to witness it to believe it . . . . but like TLC, People Magazine chose to profit off the drama and conflict even though it involved children's childhoods. Are you all good and sick yet of what has happened . . . . or will you be tuning in again Monday!!!! Frankly, it upsets me to see some still watch because it supports the continued exploitation of children. We can only fight so hard but when you tune in, you give these entities power.

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

We have no idea if this blogger actually contacted the AG. Are you familiar with the blogger's bio?


Even if the office did investigate this complaint, it would not necessarily be made public unless a criminal activity had occurred. Why not call the AG office and find out if complaints were received and if they were investigated? I'd be interesting in knowing. In addition, I would think that the IRS would be interested in the cash only love offerings.

"no laws for children, no laws enforced concerning children, family court judges biased?"

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

That is an incorrect assumption. There were and still are child labor laws in PA. The problem was that they didn't cover minors in reality television because it is such a new area and there were no children in reality television before the Gosselins entered the scene. Therefore, there were no laws written specifically for kids in the reality entertainment industry. You can go online and check with the DOL that there are indeed child labor laws in effect right now. Antiquated, yes, but PA is not without child labor laws. When the Senate passes the bill, kids in reality television will be protected under the new law so another Gosselin circus can't slip through the loopholes.

The family court judges rule based on the law. Their feelings cannot enter into it. A judge may be a father who absolutely thinks Kate is nuts and her kids are suffering because of the filming, BUT he has to look at the law and apply it. We don't agree with it. The judge himself may not even agree with it, but the law is the law.

Hey - A PA judge did rule against Kate in the therapist's bill dispute!!

How To Weasel Out... said...

The Brownie thing - Kate is probably sitting there thinking, how the heck did I get myself into this and how do I get myself out of it?

Gosselin Gossip said...

Kate's flashy new car made Yahoo's front page with this article:

"Kate Gosselin's Flashy New Car"

For most new parents, trading in the car they had pre-kids for something more reliable, spacious, practical, and less, well, cool, usually comes with the territory just like diaper changes and sleep deprivation. A zippy little sports car usually isn't an option again until junior is off to college and said parents become empty nesters.

Except, that is, if you're mom of eight Kate Gosselin.

The 36-year-old reality star (make that former reality star) recently went out and bought herself a brand new Audi TT. It's got leather seats, a turbo-charged engine, and can go up to 130 miles per hour. What it can't do is hold even a fraction of Kate's big brood in its miniscule back seat. Kind of an unusual choice for a single mom of 7-year-old sextuplets and 10-year-old twins, no?

You might be thinking, "Hey, if she's got the money, let her get whatever extra car she wants." Thing is, Kate's reality show "Kate Plus 8" (the spinoff of the TLC monster hit "Jon and Kate Plus 8" that began airing after she and Jon Gosselin divorced in 2009) was recently canceled. Since then, she's lamented to the media about financial woes.

"People think we made gazillions of dollars, and we didn't," she said in a recent cover interview with People. "After the show was canceled, I said, 'I'll go back to my old nursing job.' If nothing comes up I'll do it. But the scary reality is, 12-hour nursing shifts every day wouldn't let me continue to provide well for eight kids essentially on my own. When you think about it that way, it gets really scary."

Scary enough to go out and buy a small-but-gorgeous ride that averages in the $50,000 range? Our sympathy's waning, Kate ...

I believe that Kate bought the car 5-6 months ago, and yes, she probably did not know the show would not be renewed, but Lordy Bee! she couldn't see this coming? She knows Chris takes her pic, specifically Kate was aware she was photographed in her new car. Yet, here we are, Kate cries poor without thinking "Hey, what will it look like with me driving around in a sports car while I moan about money?"
How does Kate not get this by now?

Administrator said...

I think the person who suggested this is a good choice because of MPG needs to crunch the numbers again. The price of the car, plus insurance and fees, would take a decade before it ever becomes less costly than just driving the big blue bus around.

Do the simple Math. Let's say the car cost you 20,000. Let's say you save a whopping $60 a week on gas by now driving the big blue bus around. It would take you six and a half years before you even BREAK EVEN WITH THE PRICE OF THE CAR ALONE! And that's low-balling the price of the car and high-balling the savings on gas, and not even factoring in insurance, fees and so on. I can add, and my math tells me this car was a bad choice IF you are in dire straights as Kate claims.

Here is what any financial adviser will tell you: Cars are not houses. All cars are money pits. Or most. Except for collector cars, cars always go down in value. Cars always suck money out constantly with fees and maintenance. What you do is look at your financial situation and determine how much of a money pit you can safely afford. For some that's a car that's 4,000, for others 15,000, and for still others higher. But for most people, it's not going to be a sports car that seats two plus two other cars. And if you CAN afford three cars including this Audi, then your financial situation absolutely should not be the way Kate describes it.

This purchase proves that Kate has no self awareness.

Oh this one is pissing her off. What Jeff said is a FACT, not a guess. She spent the money on herself and didn't spend money on gymnastics and summer camp. It's not an opinion it is what it is!

I guess you rather spend the money on yourself rather than your 8 kids!!!
@jeffbalow @ldctx your comment is just that: a guess! And you guessed WRONG! Have a great day!

So, I guess when Kate eventually digs herself too deep in the whole...and I have a feeling she might, who is going to come bail her out?

Jon? Jodi? Kevin? Beth? Jamie? Ashley? Her parents? Steve? Her security team? PR? Gina?

None of the above folks! You eventually treat people bad because you think you can for so long eventually you get yourself into a mess nobody is going to want to help you!

Somehow I don't think it'll be as much fun as coming back down the same latter she went up a few years ago. Uh-uh.

Enjoy crying "pretend poor," now because when/if she actualy does go broke, nobody will truly be listening. See how many times she cries wolf eventually you quit falling for it.

I couldn't contain my curiosity went over to the number one fan site to see what they are saying about the car. Not one single word about it. Dead silent. Actually silent in general about everything. They're talking about wrapping asparagus with bacon and grilling it. What else can you talk about when Kate has spat in your faces like this after you defended her for so long?

I love reading this blog. It's full of wit, wisdom, and even a good recipe every now and then. I don't remember who posted the recipe for Coke Pot Roast, but I made it, and my family loved it. Thank you! I only wish we could drop the "I laughed and spit tea/wine/coffee/whatever all over my computer!" Ugh!
