Child molester and kidnapper helped cast children in 'Super 8' and other films starring kids

Paramount Pictures admits they did not background check Jason James Murphy. He was a registered sex offender once featured on America's Most Wanted, but used an alias while working with child actors in California.


Super 8 (2011) was cast by a child molester
"It's shocking and it's devastating, not just as a filmmaker but as a father and someone who is entrusted to make sure that everyone I work with, especially children, are safe." ~ J.J. Abrams, director and producer, Super 8.
  • Murphy also helped to cast children in The Three Stooges, Bad News Bears, The School of Rock and Cheaper by the Dozen 2. He sent an email to Abrams Artists Agency on Wednesday  "looking for 12-year-olds for a USC student film."
  • In 1996, he molested and then abducted an 8-year-old boy from his elementary school and flew with him to New York City. A prosecutor described Murphy in court papers as "obsessed" with the boy and cited a police interview in which a female friend said Murphy "was in love with" the child and had talked openly of taking him to live in London or Australia. Murphy pleaded guilty to child molestation and kidnapping charges and was given the maximum prison sentence of five years under state law by a judge who called him "a sick young man." Later after he was caught trying to contact the victim, he was given an additional five months. 
  • He registered as a sex offender in California, but never registered his alias "Jason James."
  • California law prohibits sex offenders whose victims were younger than 16 from "working directly and in an unaccompanied setting with minor children on more than an incidental and occasional basis or have supervision or disciplinary power over minor children." 
  • Paramount Pictures said it would change its screening process. "Moving forward, we … will also conduct background checks on all freelance employees, full time and part time, who work with minors on our productions."

In light of Sandusky and now this, you would think the TLC story regarding Blankenship would get some additional press, but it's not...how deep do TLC's payoffs go?

The outrage over Blankenship should be just as loud. Does anyone have an "in" to the celebrity bloggers to make this equally egregious action known? Why has it been buried under the carpet?

Teresa said...

Why is it that you serve more time for marijuana possession than for kidnapping and raping a child?! In my world it would be death for anyone doing this to a child. The child survives but the soul is forever damaged. Kids are not safe anywhere now.

cathy518 said...

But the truth is that background checks are not a complete solution to keeping children safe. Unless someone has already been convicted, they will pass a background check. How many victims did Sandusky have before he was caught? There is no substitute for being vigilant with your children and making sure you know who they are around. Of course Kate and TLC were all about "the show must go on" and not the welfare of the children. I find this really nauseating, I get physically ill thinking that the Gosselins and other children were put in harm's way like this.

Anonymous said...

Scary and creepy. It's outrageous that this perv only got 5 years for kidnapping and molesting a child! At the very least, he should have gotten life. I think I'm with Teresa, though. Death penalty! Anyone reminded of the scene in "The Godfather" where the film director molests the little girl? Prescient?

On Blankinship -- Maybe TLC knew something and was just indifferent, and maybe not. Film editing is a rather solitary endeavor. There may not have been anyone around to observe anything untoward, especially if he did his editing off-site. That still doesn't excuse their lack of outrage and seeming indifference since the story came to light, though.

These predators cannot be rehabilitated and that is very scary. I really think that they need stronger laws. Since they will never change they should be locked up for life, not just 5 years.

To quote katie's favorite word, it is 'AMAZING' that people like this can get jobs and qualified decent people are out of work.

tlc must really KNOW someone with a lot of CLOUT as they sure GET AWAY with a lot of CRAP.

Absolutely. This is the world we live in now. I don't think kids should live in a bubble but instead of sending them off on a boy scout camping trip with Mr. Smith, volunteer to be a troop leader and you go along too. Instead of exposing them to Hollywood and all of them many dangers of the public eye, have them just do a local school play. Keep an open dialogue with kids, keep eyes open about mentors of kids. There are necessary risks in life, but
Hollywood is NOT one of them. If a kid wants to go to Hollywood, great, they can do so when they are 18. There will be all the time in the world to be famous then.

Dallas Lady said...

FIVE YEARS??? The guy got FIVE YEARS for molesting and kidnapping an eight year old????

Holy hell, that's just ten kinds of wrong.

I think the overarching message I get from all this stuff as a parent is to be careful what you allow your kids to do. I'm not saying keep them in a bubble, but if they are in acting, watch people like a HAWK. Don't allow unaccompanied casting sessions. Things like that. And I'd say don't do reality TV with your kids at ALL, because they're not playing a role, they're having their lives filmed and sold. Gross.

Administrator said...

I like J.J. Abrams quote. He's shocked, he's devastated. Normal reactions. He sees his job as director as a paternal one, he is supposed to protect the children working under him. He cannot believe he failed in this regard. He is taking responsibility, even if there was no way no how he could have known, he takes it.

Compare this to Kate. No shock, no devastation. Just makes sure to cover her own ass--I didn't know him!

According to the article, five years is the maximum in Washington. What in the hell? Five years for kidnapping AND molesting an 8 year old is all you get these days?

And when he VIOLATED HIS TERMS by trying to contact the very same kid he molested AGAIN (holy crap!)??? He got a measly five months tacked on as "punishment". Big whoop!

Administrator said...

As to reform, there are a lot of experts out there, psychologists and the like, who indeed say you cannot reform these people. A child molester is a child molester and we have not found any kind of therapy to fix it. Makes me wonder if it's something you are born with.

If we can't fix it, how do we ever release these people back to society?

Administrator said...

http://www.kget.com/entertainment/story/Abrams-shocked-Super-8-casting-assistant-is-a-sex/YakbL6ZDgUiOS-uu0eksDA.cspx

This article is claiming this child molester actually also worked directly on set with kids as the children's assistant.

Disturbing.

silimom said...

And that's the rule - always make sure your child is accompanied. For those who are interested, Cub Scouts/ Boy Scouts has VERY strict policies now about youth protection. The boys and adults are required to complete Youth Protection Training, which talks about sexual, physical and emotional abuse in depth (or at least it did in my son's troop and I went through the training too). No scout can ever be left alone unless two adult leaders are present. Our troop is very strict on these rules. Unfortunately, there probably are still troops that aren't and parents that haven't taken the time to learn. I've seen lots of parents over the years who use these activities as babysitting services and don't think twice about letting their kids be alone with someone.

I can't speak for others, but if you are going to involve your child in any activity, make sure you are involved and know their youth protection policies and procedures and that they are followed.

How many how sick freaks does TLC/Figuer 8 have under wraps or employed?. They need to be shut down I'm nevours to see or hear what's next.

Tucker's Mom said...

I remember watching an Oprah episode where she visited pedophiles in a prison that was on an island off of the Pacific coast. Literally, you had to take a boat to get there, now way on or off otherwise.
It was... sickening. The thing is, none of these people came across as unintelligent. In fact, most of them were quite aware of what they did and the hell that they caused. Additionally, not one of them tried to say that they were "reborn" or "found the light". They knew damn well what they were.
The most disturbing thing that I found was how little it took to get their juices flowing. Baby diaper ads/commercials. That's all it took.
If you just look at the law of averages, can you imagine how many pedophiles looked at the G8 in a malicious manner?
What I can NOT believe is that no one, NO ONE called Kate out about not supporting Rep. Murt and his efforts to PROTECT CHILDREN. What parent would say, no, it's a bad idea? But no, Kate thinks it's a witch hunt and that, of course, he and her dejected relatives are trying to take food out of her babies mouths.
How the hell has she slid by?

silimom said...

For some reason I can't paste links here when using my iPhone. Weird. This is the only site it happens on. I used to be able to. Any suggestions?

I was reading the original LA Times article and the comments were supportive of Murphy. Huh? The man didn't disclose his past, ergo he's in violation of the law. Sounds pretty straightforward in my book. Most applications or HR paperwork have a question that asks if you've ever been convicted of a misdemeanor or felony and if so what for. Granted, I'm not certain how the hiring process for a casting agency works, so perhaps it's only resume based? Admin, you would know better than
I.

Hopefully, production companies and/or studios will now require livescan fingerprinting of all their employees. And I say this as someone who believes people can change and should be given second chances. But one of the ways you show you've changed is by taking responsibility for the actions/choices you've made in the past. Mr. Murphy knew of his past. He could have still pursued a career in casting and have said "I only work with adults" which would have met the terms of his sex offender status. He could have been honest. He wasn't. He hadn't changed, imo.

Administrator said...

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

Yes. Many of them are otherwise normal people living normal lives. Many of them are intelligent. You have to be intelligent usually to make it as a casting director, or television editor, or defensive football coach for a Big Ten team. Some of Sandusky's defensive plays have been widely upheld as the most innovative and genius in the football business and are still used today.

Sandusky freely admits that he had relationships with boys, at least on some level. Even touched them.

What you also hear a lot from these people is, Well, I can see how an outsider would see it that way.

They ARE aware. Very aware.

It's fascinating the way they seemed wired quite differently than most other criminals.

Administrator said...

&&&&&&&&

Supportive of him? Oh my God. If you know you are a child molester the last thing you do is put yourself in a situation where you have direct access to kids. Even if he fully disclosed his past and his employer still let him work with kids, at least take it upon yourself not to put yourself in that situation.

He didn't register his alias, but Paramount Productions didn't background check him either. However if they did fingerprints this should have come up whether he registered or not.

silimom said...

Tucker's Mom - Kate has "slid by" because parental rights are sacrosanct in most judicial systems, especially if you are of a certain class, i.e. upper middle to upper which Kate falls into and can higher attornies to represent your interests.

Kate has slid by because some people still view their children as property rather than human beings that parents are entrusted on a biological and spiritual level to protect and steward.

Kate has slid by because most people are apathetic and don't speak up when they see a wrong being committed. When they try to speak the truth in love, they are branded as busy bodies or know it alls or in it for their own selfish interests.

Kate has slid by because alot of people value entertainment in this country over decency and because we are training our younger generations not to think about what they put in their brains, i.e. we are teaching our children to be mindless consumers. (I am
speaking in generalizations here about the majority of Americans.)

That is why Kate has slid by.

Give them a choice. Life in prison with no chance of parole or freedom but with the agreement that they will be castrated. Justice is served by them never being allowed or wanting to violate anyone ever again.

Unfortunately, castration wouldn't necessarily stop those damn warped sickfucks.

Admin. I think these child molesters should be locked up for life, no parole. The laws need to restrict these people,but we have to raise a huge ruckus to get laws adjusted.They are a joke as is, and molesters can't be fixed or changed by rehab, doesn't work on them.

5 years for kidnap and molesting and 5 months on the next molestation? I realize the jails would be full of them if there were new laws, but what else can we do? I would be raising such a fuss if I was Kate, not seting koalas free in Australia.

She needs to be called to task on her blase attitude,'I don't know him' just doesn't cut it with me.I would be so afraid of leaving my kids this long with just a nanny and be out of the country for so long.Kate needs to learn to co-parent or let Jon have custody.

I am with Teresa on this one, death penalty sounds good for harming so much as a hair on any child's head by a child molester.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Maybe if they have to be released, they should have to regularly report what they do for a living among other things. A parol forever.

If he had to report to someone he was working as a children's casting director.....

Free Shoka said...

Corey Feldman did an interview a while back talking about pedophiles in the entertainment industry.

“I can tell you that the number one problem in Hollywood was and is and always will be pedophilia,” alleges Feldman. “That’s the biggest problem for children in this industry… It’s the big secret.”

I believe him.

There is something called chemical castration that is done in some jurisdictions. I'm not familiar except for the term. Don't even know what meds are used...

Supposed to be effective because the parole officer oversees the injection....

I could be wrong, but this seems like a good solution when pedophiles are released.

The funny thing about her tweet is she said she will keep smiling. When has she ever kept smiling? She was most likely screeching at the kids and slamming things around 10 seconds after she tweeted that.

Hopefully she up to her eyeballs in laundry.

Anonymous said...

Silimom -- spot on post. I would add one thing -- Kate has slid by because the LAW views children as the property of their parents and the family as sacrosanct. As long as "in the best interest of the child" is considered family unification (or reunification) rather than what is truly best and safest for that child, she and others like her will continue to slide by.

PN -- I know a little bit about chemical castration. One of the drugs used is Depo-Provera -- a female birth control agent. It supposedly reduces libido, makes sexual impulses easier to control, and reduces violent tendencies. Problem is, pedophilia as a complex problem and has emotional triggers as well as physical ones. Not all pedophiles are driven by sexual desires. So it's not completely effective. Neither would physical castration be completely effective. Some would sublimate their impulses into other activities, perhaps even violence (well, more violent than molestation -- things like torture or murder). The drugs are usually administered by injection, every 3 months. Personally, as I said before, I'm in favor of life sentences, or the death penalty, depending on the crime (life for voyeuristic offenses, death for causing physical harm). Sorry, I'm on my soap box here. Climbing down now and heading for the chocolate to regain my equilibrium.

This is a really dumb (maybe even sheeple) question, but here goes: The article says he used an alias. When you apply for any kind of employment, you have to give your social security number. If his name/social didn't match up with the name he was using to apply for the job, wouldn't this have caused red flags?

I must be missing something here.

Kate is unemployed said...

Aw, c'mon guys. What're you complaining about? Kate didn't know the guy. *eye roll*. It astounds me that she can't ice skate for fear of depriving the kids from her Dickensian mothering, yet couldn't give a rip about this Blankenship perv. There are very few mothers in
nature who do not protect their young.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Other mammals have never been asked to choose between money and their kids.

Humans are unique in that we have a unique relationship with this thing we invented called money. When asked to choose protecting your kids, or money, some humans cannot resist the temptation and choose money. Which is what laws are for.

Gosselin8ComeFirst said...

Let's face it. Kate is a piece of work. She is more concerned about traveling to Australia, NY, and Las Vegas, than she is spending time with her own kids. Do a local marathon Kate!!

Especially after the Blankinship notice. It seems she could care less about her own kids, but rather about traveling and her "future" career only.

God help these kids. She will never get it. It is ALL ABOUT HER!

Marie said...

This is just...it's heartbreaking. It's sad and sickening. Finding out such terrible news one after the other. What is wrong with people?

I just wish people would quit keeping secrets such as these and do the right thing to help kids. So what if he didn't have an alias down, don't they do fingerprints and all that? Guess not.

Then you have pepole like Kate who blow off such aligations, it really makes me mad. All these poor kids don't deserve this. Wacko deserves prison.

Gosselin8ComeFirst said...

And what laws/contraints did Kate EVER look into to make sure her kids were not at risk? I think we all know the answer.

Marie said...

@Administrator, you mind if I ask why you added the email of your blog your name? Not that change isn't nice just kind of curious.

Gosselin8ComeFirst said...

If someone's Social Security Number is run, it should bring up the person's name, as well as all aliases and alternate IDs.

Not sure why this wasn't done. I would do this on ANYONE, let alone people dealing with kids. Kind of standard employment requirements these days for most people.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Marie, just to further identify me as the blog owner for people who aren't regulars. :)

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I don't get why they wouldn't have his social security number. Almost all jobs over the table require that for tax purposes don't they? That is your tax identification number. When it brought up a different name wouldn't that raise red flags?

I haven't had a lot of jobs but I never met a job where I wasn't required to show my driver's license and social security card.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Reflecting on Penn State, like all horrible things when it first happens you think how could this happen, why, how horrendous.

But in the weeks that are following, I see such tremendous good I think that is coming out of this. With all the other people coming forward at other places, with Paramount Pictures quick action to call police and the great LA times article. I think most people would say child molesters are horrible, but can you walk the walk now too?

People talked the talk before Penn State. Now, it seems they are actually walking the walk--by reporting it, by not trying to cover up anything anymore, for freely expressing outrage.

I hope this is a permanent change.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

By the way this was another case of Paramount Pictures outsourcing and contracting this creep. He did NOT work for them, he worked for another production company that was contracted.

If a daycare center contracts babysitters does that mean they don't have to background check them? Please.

But PP didn't try to act like that observed them of responsibility, thank goodness. They took responsibility and immediately said we are making changes by background checking contractors too now.

You have to wonder with all the new background checks now, what will turn up on all these records?

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Absolved not observed. :)

Gosselin8ComeFirst said...

Most standard job applications over past several years(at least) require you list any prior arrests or convictions. Pretty standard practice for many companies due to liability.

Of course, most companies will follow up your application with a record check.

Background checks are standard practice and have been for at least 10 years, especially with kids involved, so there really is no excuse for this. People who sub-contract should still be responsible to get background checks on any employees. Standard 101.

Exactly, admin. That was my question. If the name and number on the SS are different than the name he is using, then how was he hired...unless he set up an entirely new name with a new (hijacked) social security number? Why wouldn't they have checked this out if the social security number was bogus?

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I don't understand what this story has to do with TLC or Figure 8

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

Really? The connection is glaring to me. The entertainment industry is UNSAFE for children and not properly regulated. This is yet another example of that. There are many reasons it is unsafe--they risk losing all their money or most of it to greedy parents, they could be exposed to the adult world too soon, like drugs, sex, etc., just ask Drew Barrymore. They miss out on normal social situations like the prom, regular school, etc. States are not on the same page, in many states you can work a child to death and it's all legal. In many states kids can be put in unsafe situations and it's all legal. And just the latest, you could be exposing your child to pedophiles who didn't even so much as have to go through a background check before they have full access to either your kids, footage of your kids, or both.

The question really to me is how can you not see the connection?

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

This story also proves that figure 8 was not just some small studio that didn't know what it was doing and didn't background check their workers.

MAJOR STUDIOS, like Paramount Pictures, aren't background checking their employees or sub-contract employees. It appears that across the board what is standard, is to let whatever creep around whatever amount of kids and no one did a darn thing to even so much as make sure the NAME they were using matched up with the name on their legal documents.

___________

Perhaps he/she wasn't aware of the Blankenship scandal. If such is not the case, then how could any thinking person NOT see the connection between pedophiles in the entertainment industry, whether it is PP, TLC or Figure Eight? Each of them employs persons who work around children, and/or are responsible for editing films that contain raw footage of children. Why would everything here have to be directly related to TLC when what we're talking about is pedophiles in the entertainment industry? This discussion isn't limited exclusively to perverts that may be employed by TLC.

If someone cannot see the connection, then it's obvious that person can't see the forest for the trees.

Anonymous said...

Permanent Name -- Yes, Depo is used for violent sex offenders -- rapists, child molesters, etc. One of the theories is that excessive testosterone can cause the behaviors and because Depo counteracts it and causes feminization, it reduces libido, sexual fantasies, and makes it easier for the perps to control their behavior.

Gosselin Gossip said...

Thanks for creating a separate post for this, Admin.

While this news has nothing to do with TLC, Figure 8, or the Gosselins, I thought it was relevant to show how this particular convicted sex offender chose to pursue a career in film and television and wound up casting child actors. He purposely put himself in a situation where he would continue to work with children and probably changed his name so his employers wouldn't know he was a convicted sex offender (in addition to not registering his alias as a registered sex offender, required by CA law).

After reading this article, it made me wonder if Blankinship put himself in a position to work on editing reality shows with children so he could gain more access to child images. How many other Murphys or Blankinships are working in the entertainment industry?

Murphy doesn't look like a creepy, convicted sex offender at all; he has a "nice guy" image.

Westcoaster said...

Yes, I see Twittermom is in full mode today; I am guessing Steverino has returned to his other home perhaps to see his real children, and I am also guessing the 8 are with their real dad, since Bitchmom would never cross the custody line to let them spend time with a parent while she was playing Down Under. Oh sorry, I meant on her self-promotion 'business' tour.

I'm not a runner, but I know runners - somehow I just don't believe she ran 20 miles today. Can't wait to see her 'perform' in LV in two weeks.

Today in my real world, we are celebrating our SIL's passing the CA bar - talk about real work and endurance, from law school itself to taking the grueling exam. Which is why, K8, you are a vapid joke to me.

He obviously did. 99% of his resume was made up of projects with kids. Really, you never once had other opportunities to work on projects that didn't involve kids? He obviously found a socially acceptable way to be around little children, just like Sandusky did, and just like Murphy did.

The Second Mile charity knows that Blankinship set it up just as a way to get his hands on little boys. They are seriously considering dissolving themselves given they were just a cover for a pedophile. My bet is they will vote to dissolve by the end of the month.

This is just such a sickening mess. I still am reeling at the response Kate gave about this guy, Blankinship. "Don't know him," you wish, Kate. Just saw one of her books at the Dollar store, and another one in the discount bin. The latter had a pic of one of the tups with her panties down around her ankles while she was sitting on the potty. These are a pervert's dream. Horrible, simply horrible!

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

The dangers of the entertainment industry when it comes to children is all highly relevant to the Gosselin kids in my opinion. Especially in light of Blankinship.

This is their world. They are a part of this forever. They aren't being filmed anymore, but TLC said they're going to do specials and Kate said she wants the family back on TV. It's not over. And Blankinship has brought this all up again.

To me problems, which doesn't seem like a strong enough word, in the entertainment industry when it comes to kids are directly related to the Gosselin kids as they are to all kids in this business.

Tucker's Mom mentioned an Oprah episode on sex offenders living on an island. It was enlightening, hosted by Lisa Ling.

http://www.oprah.com/showinfo/The-Most-Dangerous-Child-Sex-Offenders-in-America

Some excerpts from "Sex Offenders Confined on an Island":
Before his confinement, Brent [convicted on multiple offenses against boys and girls] says he would go to great lengths to spend time with his victims.

If she hadn't been caught, Laura [convicted of first-degree child rape] says she doesn't think anything would have stopped her. "I didn't need to groom my victims because they were so young," she says. "But I did have to groom their parents."

...Who are the most vulnerable victims? Laura says it's the children who aren't getting the love and attention they need at home.

"Back when I was offending, if I saw a parent who seemed negligent or they didn't want to be bothered with their kid or they didn't want to go to the park or they didn't want to play with them or they were messy and dirty or they needed a bath, those were the kind of people that I targeted," she says.

Gift of grab said...

She's already confirmed that she doesn't have the kids this weekend. Which means she really hasn't had to spend much time with them (or cook or clean or do laundry) in fully two weeks (assuming a regular schedule of alternating weekends, and the usual complement of housekeeper/babysitters/laundry girl).

Hope for the kids' sake this is Jon's year for Thanksgiving. She will no doubt be preoccupied with the advance work for her LV Look-at-ME party.

I don't think there is any dispute about Collin covering his face anymore.

From Collin's own mouth in 6th Birthday Surprise, "It’s good that the paparazzi went away."

http://www.realitytvkids.com/2010/06/6th-birthday-surprise-recap-kids.html

Even the sheeple admit he didn't like them, they just think that the paparazzi is different from the fun loving child molesting crew. They never made the connection that the filming CAUSED the paparazzi.

Yes they did, they just think there's no point in stopping now because the paps won't go away anyway(since they did stop for several months and the paps still took pictures).Of course they ignored the fact that, while they didn't film both Jon and Kate made Tv appearances and made controversial statements, which kept them in the spotlight

Gather all of the deviant, opportunistic, child predators, and castrate the entire lot of them.

That is all.

Children depend on adults to protect them, not muthaf-ing failing them.

I'm so mad, I could spit nails.

Additionally, not one of them tried to say that they were "reborn" or "found the light". They knew damn well what they were.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I have a close friend who used to run the sex-offender program in a medium security federal prison. He will be the first person to tell you that you CAN NOT rehabilitate sex-offenders. They will always re-offend, but they have to release them when they have met the terms of their sentence.
Often, here, you will see on the news that so-and-so a level 3 sex offender was released and the general public should be alert. Apparently they make those announcements so they have a better chance of catching them re-offending (and can lock them up again).

Kate is unemployed said...

Kate ran 20 miles in 230 minutes...almost a 12 minute mile. Yay....(deflated inflection). For such a lazy person, it's truly astounding if she really plodded for 4 hours. I have my doubts. I've never a distance runner with such poor muscle tone and so much damn cellulite. And such white running shoes to boot. But hey, let her run that marathon. Maybe someone will get a picture of her sweat drenched weave and makeup sliding off her face. If she finishes, kudos to her, but I'd rather that she be sweet to
her kids.

Okay, so I log on here tonight and read the top five kHatie tweets. Notice how, in 2 out of 5, she mentions how much she HATES something? I thought she was Miss Positive outlook!!!!!!!! Only seeing the bright side, attacking the day, etc., ad nauseum!

I know I shouldn't be surprised by her rotten attitude. I simple am shocked that the klovers don't see how two-faced she is. How does she ALWAYS get a free pass from her fans? We should all be the recipient of such blind devotion.

Oh wait, I am, from my darling dog!

Screw castration! I feel exactly the same way as you, but, l want them dead! The world is over-populated, so let's start reducing that by killing the whole friggen lot of them. I am not a violent person my any means. I won't even kill a bug, (seriously!) l take them outside. But this is getting rediculous, there's too many predators out there and we can never ever know who they are till they're caught. NO such thing as rehabilitaion.

anger issues kate said...

Why Kate is so negative, cause now she has to put up or shut up about the marathon. Just cause you ran 20 miles, once so far, does not mean anything. Kate you twit, you have to do that all the time, to get your body use to that kind of endurance, plus do you know the races course, is it flat, hilly or a combo of both, what about the height and air, does Kate even understand, nutrition requirements for running. If she makes the finish line, at the half marathon it is a fluke. There are consequences, that can occur, when not doing a prep work for a marathon correctly. Oh, but I forgot Kate is supermom and knows it all. She is a laugh a minute!

Westcoaster said...

Thank you Admin, in addition to his hard work in law school and yes, passing one of the hardest bars in this country, my darling son in law has moved from Australia to marry our daughter and raise a family with her HERE. He has a wonderful family there who he obviously now sees infrequently given the distance and expense. Another reason why I find K8's casual abandoment of her family, and her enforced estrangement from same upon her children to be such a travesty.

And now she is home, no children after 10 days away because it is so much better to have a sitter with them than their dad while she is gone because she is a rigid bitch. And then she will be gone again for yet another MeMeMe trip, another excuse for a weekend with her road manager. Again, can't wait to see her time in that race, should she even finish.

No wonder so many have K8 fatigue this season, but only best wishes for everyone here ths holiday. Truly.

Marie said...

What if just by chance Kate sudden proved everyone wrong with her running time? And you know...she's actually quite good?

Pause. Laugh hysterially now.

After seeing pictures...come on. Who seriously runs like that? Looks like she just lumbers along shuffling her feet but only puts on more serious face and attempt when paps catch her for pictures.

Since, obviously she runs alone, just how is she going to handle running in a crowd of people per say? There has to be a different of some kind. I mean I jog most mornings (except here when someone forgets to shovel their sidewalk and the street is clogged with snow) but, just how is she going to do this when she hasn't most likely not practiced? Done a local run in PA just for the feel of it?

This should be interesting. For a divorced mom of 8 kids who is supposedly worried about being able to afford stuff for her kids...I sure don't see any signs of it coming from herself. What a jerk.

And I don't buy her bit of shoveling snow either! I did it today in my driveway, broke a sweat a bit. I'm worried about Kate chipping her fancy nails or falling over in the snow. So not really!

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Not exactly defending Kate here but for many people marathons have nothing to do with time, but rather with the ability to run the whole time and FINISH. That said Kate sure talks a lot about times that are mediocre at best.

One of my roommates in law school trained for a triathlon and she could care less about time, I don't think she really looked at her times. She cared more about being able to physically finish. And she did, yea!

Some are saying Kate was gone in Australia for two weeks, now 10 days? Why the exaggerations? She's a big enough jerk when there is no exaggeration.

Kate left on the 11th, today is the 19th, she arrived home late on the 16th.

Have You Any Wool said...

She left on the 8th, showed up in the CC office on the 9th, and returned home on the 16th.

"The matriarch of TLC’s now-cancelled “Kate Plus 8” arrived at the modest Whiting, IN offices of CouponCabin on November 9, sporting a hot pink dress and peep-toe heels."

She was gone for 8 days.

She said "Put your hands at your own side." Yet another grammar mistake from the queen of grammar.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

No, no one said Kate was gone for two weeks that I see.

What was SAID is that she only have a few days with them before they were shipped off to Jon again, and that the time with Jon plus all the time away amounts to a long time away from them with only a full few days with them in between. Not to mention she's about to go have the time of her life in sunny Las Vegas.

The bottom line is 10 days or two weeks or whatever it is, she is away from these kids far more than a nurse ever would have been.

Just curious said...

A tweeter said she was gone for two weeks. The exaggerations just give the fans more ammo. That's all.

I don't consider the few extreme rabid twitters representative of all people who are calling Kate out. The way you said it suggested you were referring to someone here. If you're upset about a tweet, include the tweet.

There is nothing we can do here about the rabid twitters but ignore them.

Kate shoveling snow? If a lie, no surprises there. If true, she may literally freeze her tits off. Maybe TLC is no longer comping for maintenance of the orphanage. Good thing she has that imbecilic manual thrown in a corner somewhere.

She could never shovel the driveway. She'd use a service for that. One sweep with the plow, and it's done. It is, however, totally possible that she and the kids shovel a path from the house to the garage.

Okay, this is totally OT but too creepy to overlook. Admin: I spent some time online yesterday researching toy fire trucks for my 3-year-old (who desperately wants one for Christmas). Lo and behold, every time I come on to the blog now, the ticker at the top (just below the caricature of J+K)is showing EVERY toy fire truck I viewed, and offering some I failed to find. WTF????? How are my google searches connected to this blog? This is just downright creepy.

Sorry for OT, Admin..

How does Kate afford services for her driveway on a part-time blogging salary when Jon, on a full-time construction job only covers lunch apparently? I mean come on.

Confusion clarified? said...

@admin.... sorry, I totaly get the connection between this story overall and TLC/Figure8...my confusion is why chefsummer wants TLC shut down over this Murphy story. Murphy is not connected to TLC or Figure8 in any way. My comment only refers to that particular part of chefsummer's post. I totally understand the connection between Blankenship and Murphy's involment in children working in entertainment and the need to protect the children. My comment was only in regards to chefsummers desire to shut down TLC because there was another pedophile discovered working around chldren in the entertainment industry. He wasn't working for TLC as far as I can tell, so why should they be shut down? I agree the entertainment industry needs to protect the children who work in the industry, but background checks will only detect those who have records (and apparently those who provide their correct names)...the industry as whole needs to work on a solution, not just TLC/Figure8

Kate is now claiming she is a size 2 and can eat whatever she wants. Soon she will be saying she is a size 0 or 00. I don't believe it. And hearing her bones creak--not a good sign for her. All of that running is really tough on your bones and joints.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Shut down, well, I don't know if we need to go that far. But massive overhaul of how production companies handle the people who work for them who in turn with with kids. DEFINITELY.

PJ's momma said...

Gift of grab, all runners cross the same finish line. They all start together and eventually separate for different courses. Finisher medals go to everyone, based on the bib info, so if she signed up for the half and runs the whole, she will still get a hAlf marathon medal hung around her neck. Haha!

Westcoaster said...

mea culpa, I may have been the poster (not tweeter) who said two weeks. Let's not nit pick, the point is 10-12 days away, home late, sleeping off jet-lag, an evening to tell the kids all about her fun trip, and now they're at dad's for the weekend. And shift work would take her away from home more? Next up splitting Thanksgiving and then her trip to the Marathon. Would not be surprised if a half-day race turns into a very long weekend, complete with personal roady.

Now she's nattering about work charts. How about a hug and a cuddle, you self-centered twitidiot?

I work out for myself, because it's good to be healthy and it makes me feel good and it's good time spent with OH and doggie. I work out for my family and friends, so I can be active and do things with them and so I will be around, God willing, a long time.

Why can't her sheeple just do things for healthy reasons, and not because of Kate?

@MiloandJack false. He took them for 24 hours. His choice.

"His choice"? When you have a court-ordered schedule? She left two days after HIS weekend, reportedly without telling him how long or where she was going. And it's "his choice" while she's gone for 10 days (over HER weekend) that he didn't take them?

This is why she will never succeed with the "happy, healthy, all-for-my-kids supermommy" act. She is a vindictive, dishonest, lying sack of ****. Fill in your own four-letter word.

Also, Kate is doing it for the perks: red-carpet walk, goodie gift bag full of expensive goodies, publicity, as one said here: keeping her name alive, being photographed(though she hates that or so she saysLOLOLOLOL), and like someone said: to get away from her kids.
Jon: Could that: his choice: 24 hours, been spread out during the time Kate was gone? Don't forget Jon does work 8 hours maybe plus hours. The kids are gone for 12 of those hours during the day. If Jon spent 2 hours each day or more, while Kate was gone. Kate forgets, that Jon and the rest of us work those mediocre/normal jobs, that are from 7-3, 8-4, 9-5. We don't have the lazy-ass time like Kate does, and go back to bed, after kids are gone to school, do whatever, when we feel like it, have a maid service come to clean house,etc. But, Kate does have that part-time coupon blogging job(Kate admitted that it is part-time, I wonder how long that will last). Judging, on how long the blog for TLC last and her own blog is going and when she feels like tweeting, not long.

chuckycheese said...

So now her highness is sure it is a 'major possibility' she will have a TV show again, at least according to one of the Twitters today. She is absolutely delusional.

Also, funny how she can claim Jon had them for 24 hours -- his choice, and yet he is not allowed to come out and tell his side of what really happened. She is a sick person.

Marie said...

I find it very creepy. Isn't dressing like your idol, mimicking them and all that something one does in their teenage years? These aren't adult women are they? I know Paige isn't obviously. But don't these teens, if they are, have parents? I would want to know who my kid was e-mailing, facebooking, twittering, whatever with. If I had kids but I don't. It still speaks to me of common sense.

Westcoaster said...

Time is coming real soon when her twins will dispute her version of the time Jon gets to spend with them. 24 hours - his choice? Anyone besides Milo believe that? She really should keep her big fat twitter mouth shut.

As for running as a role model, maybe it would be believable if she ran closer to home AND then her children could actually participate in cheering her on. Nope, this frivolity is all about her, as is everything she does.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

She is a vindictive bitch. Their custody disputes are none of anyone's business. There are two sides to every story. Why should Jon just be at her beck and call whenever the mood strikes her to take off to Australia? He works full time, he would have to at the last minute figure out how to get them to school, pick them up, nannies, babysitters. That's not fair to the kids. Why should they be disrupted from their normal routine because Kate wants to go cuddle Honey?

We're not falling for this Kate, there are two sides here. And the other side, is wisely choosing not to comment.

Like I have said several times, Jon is wise to STICK TO THE SCHEDULE. Once you start playing the mix it up game, Kate will never, ever let you forget it.

For instance, you got the kids while I was in Australia, why should you get them this weekend? See what I mean.

I have always, 100% of the time, advised fathers, or mothers, dealing with narcissists, to stick to the schedule and don't change it by one minute off.

&&&&&&&&

I might fall for this if she had done the many local marathons that took place over the past several months. I saw a web site listing all the major ones in the U.S. and there were at least half a dozen in PA.

She wants to go to Vegas because of the nice weather, the good food, the fun, and time alone with Steve and the time away from the kids. It has nothing to do with the marathon.

Gift of grab said...

Just curious, I was the one who said it was nearly two weeks of not seeing her kids.

If you go by Kate's own comments and what is known of the custody schedule, Jon had the kids the weekend of 11/5 and would have brought them home late in the day on Sunday, the 6th. She left town on the 8th for Chicago, on the 10th for Australia, returned to the U.S. on the 16th (after midnight, so really the 17th), and the kids would be scheduled to go to Jon on Friday (18th) at 5 p.m., right? So, in the course of two weeks, she's seen her kids for maybe 24 hours, if you subtract school hours and sleeping time.

You do the math. And if that's too difficult, maybe you'd do better to resume posting on the sheeple sites.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

LOL she's one to complain about Jon not seeing the kids. How many hours has she spent with her own children over the past two weeks?? 12, 24?

She really is a piece of work.

I want Jon to tell his side, and yet, I don't.

When Kate gets packages, how does she know that they don't contain explosives, or a toxic chemical? She's not exactly the country's most popular mother. Does Steve open the mail and check for anthrax or a molotov? Or has Shoka been trained as a bomb sniffing dog?

If I were Kate, I think I'd be very cautious about opening packages, but there she was, letting her kids eat chocolate from a stranger in Europe. For the sake of the children, I hope that she has some kind of safety precautions in place.

Khate was so disgusting on Twitter tonight, I could scream. She had about three suck up teens and a couple of the delusional older women kissing her ass, telling her how great she was for running 20 miles. Get this - she says the kids line the driveway and cheer her on. You can't make this stuff up. She's the only mom who doesn't spend her time and her weekends cheering the KIDS on as they pursue their interests. It's all about Khate and her "dreams" she keeps blabbing about. She also said she hated leaving "honey" the koala. But, she can leave her kids every chance she gets.

As for her time away from the kids, her own tweets reveal that in two whole weeks, she saw the kids mere hours. They were at Jon's the weekend of 11/4-6. Then she would have only seen them for a few hours after school on Monday and Tuesday before leaving for Chicago and the Australia. I'm sure she had a sitter there while she packed and got ready to leave.

After being gone over a week, she could have only seen them for a few hours after school this Thursday and now it's Jon's weekend. By the way, she said she slept all day Thursday, trying to get back on EST. Really? Hmm, I thought she said back on The Talk last spring that the time zones were no problem at all for any of the kids? They didn't have the luxury of sleeping for a day or two, they had to go right back to school all jet lagged (which the sheeple claimed wasn't an issue, yeah, right, 15 hour time difference is no problem at all).

So, she saw them only a few hours for two or three days in a period of two weeks. What a great mother. I love how she says it's JON's choice to have them just 24 hours while she was gone. NO, it's HER choice to leave her kids as often as she can, including on "her" weekends. I do hope that this matter is back before a judge soon.

I don't even have the stomach to post some of the drivel here, but you can check it out here, where you can see what tweets she is responding to (like her claim that being back on a TV show is a definite possibility):

Rearranging the Deck Chairs on the Titanic said...To Administrator or any one else who wants to take on this question: I am being the Devil's Advocate for KHateat tho moment, and I am going to say that it is noble and good that Khate is doing the Las Vegas Marathon, because, in her own words in one of her tweets, she wants to show her kids they can do anything if they put their minds to it and work hard and are determined. What is wrong with that? Just wondering what you all think.
-----------

I do think it is noble for parents to show their kids good examples of perseverance and determination by achieving their own personal goals. There is nothing wrong with that. However...

Wouldn't it be better if Kate participated in a local marathon where her kids could actually cheer her on at the finish line? Such as the NYC marathon that some celebs participated in for various charities. Kate could have gotten the media attention she craves, and her kids could have witnessed and celebrated her accomplishment as their mom crossed her first finish line.

Thanks to everyone for responding to my post. I knew that there was no altruistic reason (the "It's all for the kids! It's all for the kids" is a bunch of crap) for Khate to be running in the Las Vegas Marathon, but you guys clarified it for me. Thanks. I can't stand this witch.

Yes. It sure was not Jon's choice to have Kate leave them for ten days, and leave them again next weekend. He is going to set himself up for agony until these children are 18 if he starts engaging in Kate's games. He won't, clearly.

Another nice parental alienation move on Kate's part.

Mary said...

I agree with others about the fact that she could have run marathons that are closer to home. Tomorrow there is a big one in Philadelphia which she could get to in about an hour and a half. There are some cash prizes but you would have to finish in the top 5. She could go there and be back all in the same day.

The one she is going to gets her another free vacation, free gifts and more time with Steve.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

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

In another tweet several days ago, she said she can't run (other than the treadmill) when the kids are home. Only when she doesn't have them.

Now she says she runs and they line the driveway?

And yes it's all about her. I think the only thing we've ever heard about the children's goals and dreams are that Mady wants to be a Disney star (which is really all about Dina Lohan, I mean Kate) and that Mady wants to be a vet.

Otherwise, nothing. Sure, Collin is strongminded, and Hannah is Mommy's helper. But other than those superficial things she could give a rip about what the kids want out of this life.

Westcoaster said...

And isn't that the truth - K8 should be spending her weekends cheering on her kids instead of bragging that she lines them up the driveway to give Mommy the high five. One has to really wonder what she did not get in her own childhood that she uses her children now for the attention that should be theirs. And the activities that they do not get to participate in, again the shame of it all. When my children were the ages hers are now we spent most weekends on soccer fields, the absolute best days of my life, and I look forward to cheering on my grandboys someday in their chosen activities. And yet, does she choose a race in her 'hood so that her family fan club can join her, nope, the race is for her own personal weekend fun. Awful person, awful mother.

I wonder why these parent's either allow or don't have a clue who their kids are talking to. Don't parent's check e-mail or whatever these days? Mine read over my shoulder, sent my e-mails to family members, talked about my social life, read my e-mails for years.

Not that I approve a parent needs to go that far, but don't these parent's know anything? If I had a kid who was chatting with a 36 year old, I think I'd want to know! I guess we'll see if a few years down the road here.

Some of the sheeple even asked her if the kids would be in Las Vegas to cheer her on. Most people who run marathons like to have family and friends there along the route and at the finish line. I guess that never occurred to Khate. She claims she's doing this to prove something to the kids, BUT they are left entirely out of it. She's so full of crap, I can't stand it.

Also, she mentioned for the first time ever that she loves the carb-loading part of running. Really? That's funny because she has tweeted endlessly about how she eats sparingly, with little to no carbs. When a real runner tweeted to her about loading up with carbs recently, she was actually surprised as if she had never even heard of it and she asked the tweetie to tell her more.

Also, tonight someone else who appears to be a runner gave her advice on tapering off and not doing long runs anymore before the race. Again, Khate seemed totally clueless. She has not put one minute or ounce of effort into educating herself about marathon prep. I have never known a runner who does races and marathons not have a running schedule and routine in preparation for a marathon. She just runs sporadically when she feels like it. I'm sure she has that freebie book from the runner sheeple sitting in her pile, but she's too busy to get to it.

Nobody Likes a Narcissist (NLAN) said...

TLC ship is sinking - sorry, I didn't see your post with the running tweets. I was typing my post and mentioned the tweets with running advice about tapering off.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Especially for kids the Tups age, unless they are actually at the race, it's going to be hard for them at that age to visualize it, understand it, be able to get what it is all about. Staying home and not being there to hold a "Go Mommy!" sign means they will not really get this.

This is just another way of using the children for Kate to justify her bad behavior.

Nobody Likes a Narcissist (NLAN) said...

OH my effing gosh, Khate just came back on Twitter to answer a sheeple question about Jon and to answer a teen sheeple who said she had gifts to send the twins. The non-fans predicted Khate would pounce as soon as gifts were mentioned. The teen has been ignored by Khate for weeks, but tonight she came on and mentioned the gifts. This was after Khate signed off for the night, but just like she ALWAYS does, she came back on!

I'm not so sure at age 7 and 11 that the kids really know what they want out of this life. There's still plenty of time for that. Don't most boys at that age want to be policemen or firemen, and girls want to be nurses or teachers? All that may change. Hopefully, though, Kate doesn't steer them in the direction of Disney, television commercials, or film. Would she even think to take a look at the Lindsay Lohans of the entertainment industry? Heck no - that couldn't happen to HER kids, just like a pedophile could never get his hands on footage of them.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Kate, who has been gone 10 days and is about to take off again, had this to say about how it would be if she would go back to nursing on the Wendy Williams show in Sept.:

"I feel like I could work 16 hour shifts on a daily basis [illegal] and be down the road from them and see them less than I see them now."

Not sure how she figures that.

And lest we forget how Kate really feels about her kids, she said she is the one saddled with the majority of the responsibility for them. Saddled! Who says that about their kids??

Ironic for her to say that, because her blog post on her typical daily diet had hardly any carbs. It made me question how she has the endurance and stamina to train for these marathons on her daily salad diet. She's been training for this marathon for months and many of her previous tweets are about eating salads.

Besides the fact it is sickening Kate is discussing her private custody dispute publicly, what Kate is saying is sort of like Hollybaby's article. But Jon said the article wasn't true. He tweeted this.

Who to believe, who to believe? Eh, I'm going with the one who isn't a pathological liar.

Nobody Likes a Narcissist (NLAN) said...

That witch. SHE plans a ten day trip that covers "her" weekend with the kids and then says she asked Jon to take them? Well, did she provide the sitter that she can't live without during the week? SHE doesn't even work and she needs a sitter for school drop offs and pick ups. How is Jon supposed to do it when HE has a job?

As far as taking the weekend, as Admin has said many times, the WORST thing Jon can do right now is agree to switch weekends and mess up the schedule just to accommodate her and her selfish pursuits. So, maybe he didn't want to switch weekends but said he'll take them for half of the weekend - that is WITHOUT having to exchange weekends and give her this weekend, which is "his" weekend.

I just can't believe she keeps doing this on Twitter. She is a no class piece of crap. If I were him, I'd be building a carefully documented record and haul her ass back to court.

It's always what excites her.

It's just so sad. All kidding aside, talk about serious self esteem issues. Why would you work out for Kate or any celeb?

I work out for myself, because it's good to be healthy and it makes me feel good and it's good time spent with OH and doggie. I work out for my family and friends, so I can be active and do things with them and so I will be around, God willing, a long time.

Why can't her sheeple just do things for healthy reasons, and not because of Kate?
-------------------------------------
I facilitate nutrition and fitness classes in the military (one of my collateral duties) and in our training we were told that whatever reason people work out (or change to a healthy diet)is a good reason, so long as they work out! We are told that during the class (it is an 8 class course) where we discuss motivation, to have the participants list their motivation, and no one is wrong- every motivation is the correct one for that person. So, if these sheeple use Kate as their motivating factor, fine, as long as they get physical :)

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Butterfly, I have to disagree. There are unhealthy reasons to work out that can lead you down a dangerous path.

Such as, you work out because you want to be 90 lbs and you don't stop until you are 90 lbs, or dead. Or you run because Kate Gosselin does and in the process destroy your knees because you have no clue what you are doing but you just believed if Kate could do it you could too. Their are definitely some unhealthy reasons to work out that should be worked through in therapy before you hit the gym.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

This is what happens when you switch weekends with a narcissist. All of a sudden they knock on your door at 5 a.m. Christmas morning on your holiday with the kids demanding the kids back because THEY graciously gave YOU a free weekend and now they want to make up for their generosity and of course you understand right? Crying, screaming kids get dragged off with their mother and you're left standing there in your PJs wondering wtf just happened and why did you try to accommodate her all those months ago. I've seen it happen again and again and again as a family law attorney.

Stay strong Jon, do not switch weekends, do not play into her hands. It will come back to bite you.

Also, one tiny side of the story in Kate's tweets. I'm left with several questions. How much advance notice did Kate give Jon to ask him to rearrange his entire life? Because my sources say the Australia trip came out of the blue without a lot of notice, even though she WANTED to go for a long time it was not set in stone until a few weeks before (consistent with when we heard about it). Most bosses require several weeks notice if not more. Did Jon even have enough time to rearrange things? Most babysitters want a lot of notice if you're going to switch things up. Was their time to arrange a babysitter? Unlikely. What about getting all of their school stuff over to his house, since they are normally doing schoolwork at Kate's. That's stressful for the kids. Who will bring the kids to the bus if both Jon and Ellen work? Who will pick them up? There are a million things that need to be rearranged for Jon to take the kids and Kate well knows it.

As for tattling to Jon? Jon has ever darn right to know that this woman is discussing their private custody battle on her public twitter feed. It matters not that it is true or not you dumb bitch, it matters that the children's mother is discussing their father on a twitter feed with how many readers now? Good grief. Parental alienation at its finest. If only the judge believed in the concept like so many others are starting to.

I've seen the same problems, Admin. So, I hope this is at least indication that Jon is getting good legal advice now. He needs to remain as consistent and stable as possible right now, and it appears that he has for quite some time. Also, switching the schedule on Khate's whim allows HER to be in control and that is part of what she wants. She wants to dictate when it is convenient for her to have the kids and when it is not. Sorry, parenthood does not work that way.

I tend to believe that she did not give him much advance notice. That would explain why she never mentions things on Twitter until the last minute or after the fact. Remember we were saying how it didn't make sense that she didn't mention the Australia trip on Twitter to encourage Australian sheeple to be at the zoo that day, or possibly the dinner? Last weekend, I saw at least two dozen Australian sheeple tweet in reply to Khate's tweet that they were shocked she was there and wish they had known sooner. Also, with a lunch with Khate being auctioned, you think she would have mentioned it on Twitter several times in advance so anyone in Australia would know and might be able to go to the dinner to bid on it.

Nobody, exactly! I think it could very well be an indication a lawyer is advising him not to play ball with this psycho. A good family law attorney who knew half of how Kate is would be advising him to ignore her shenanigans and just go by the family law order schedule he has in his hand. You can see how much it is driving Kate nuts that Jon won't play her games. She can't help herself blabbing away about it on twitter. What you said about Kate switching the schedule because Kate wants to be in control is spot on. We all know there would be a royal breakdown if Jon tried to switch up the schedule. But Kate wants him to jump when she says jump just like he used to and he won't--boy does that make her nuts.

If you don't get along? Stick to the schedule. No ifs, ands or buts. Not exceptions. Not deviations. Not switching. Absolutely no diversion from the schedule and then Kate will never be able to take Jon to court claiming that he isn't following the schedule.

On the surface it sounds so terrible the way Kate paints it--awful Jon doesn't want his kids. But that's not what I think is happening here. Awful Jon doesn't want to start a volcano by playing with Kate. Awful Jon is thinking big picture. Awful Jon is following sound legal advice. And awful Jon is not making what is already one of the most outrageous cases of parental alienation I have ever seen, even worse.

Westcoaster said...

You know before tonight, I would have said that Kate was wrong for not letting Jon have access to the kids when she flies the coop (and yes, I have said it), but now I see why it is in his best interest to keep to the custodial agreement. It is all for the long run, and now I understand the situation with more clarity. Truly it is a shame that their relationship is so adversarial, but she wanted it, and of course the kids lose.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Here's a forum where experts can post where a woman was asking for advice. Her ex husband was refusing to keep a set schedule and blamed it all on his work. It was disruptive for the kids.

http://www.avvo.com/legal-answers/can-my-ex-husband-keep-changing-visitation-to-suit-240367.html

Three family law attorneys replied to her. They all said set a firm schedule through the courts, then make him stick to the schedule.

One in particular said this: "Your husband has no legal right to change visitation schedules on a whim."

Kate can try to suggest otherwise, but Jon is doing the right thing.

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

I was thinking that too, Admin. It really is driving her nuts!

If and when they end back up in court, there should be a stipulation as to how much notice a parent has to give the other if they are changing the schedule. I think with the TLC filming schedule, Jon must have accommodated her plenty of times, but, now she really has no excuse to keep changing it up.

What's funny is that I watched a couple of the clips that were linked to in some of the comments here recently. I forget which interview it was; it might have been when she was on Regis and Kelly before taking off to Mexico. The time she said that she sits home and waits for the kids to call that they want to come home from Jon's. Anyway, I think it was that one, and Khate said some bullshit about how she tries to stick to the schedule and provide the kids with consistency. I actually shouted out loud, "What?!" She is SO full of it.

Ever since the divorce, SHE is the one with the crazy schedule, always changing things up up. Look at just what she did to the kids mere months after the divorce when she was on DWTS. The schedule was crazy and the kids' heads must have been spinning trying to figure out what day it was and when she'd be there again for a couple of days. Then add all the traveling the kids had to do for the show, and there has been NO consistency at all, thanks to Kate. Now the show is over and the kids need a private life and a stable, consistent schedule.

TLC ship is sinking said...

Ideally, if Jon had right of first refusal, then it wouldn't count towards his custody time? So if Kate cannot watch them during her custody weekend, Jon could take the kids and still have them again on his following custody weekend? Just wondering what would be an ideal custody situation, as I have no clue about custody issues.

A part of me is thinking, do what's best for the kids - take your kids instead of leaving them with a babysitter/nanny. HOWEVER, I do see the point NLAN and Admin are making by not sticking to the existing schedule. Kate would take advantage of it, then find some way to use it against him. Thanks for the legal explanation.

Very unfortunate for the Gosselin kids.

At 2:08, Khate says:

"They're just trying to get used to the fact that, you know, these are the days and I'm trying to keep the schedule as stable as possible, and not have it flimsy flamsy around because for them, that's the best. They need to know, like, I go this many days, or on this day.

Kelly Ripa: Yeah, kids like consistency, for sure.

Admin,
Yes you are right about wanting to lose too much weight as a motivator- the members in our program are military so we dont typically have a problem with that. As for the knees, well all I can say is the doctor who trained us said injuries aren't likely unless people are waaaay off in form, and I read running blogs and sites and mags and medical journals (cuz I happen to run exactly like Kate, just cant get the hang of a good speed) and I had sports occupational therapy due to shin splints and multiple stress fractures, and it all seems to agree knee injuries arent as common as people claim, and in fact, the more you run (and I am not talking starting at 1 mile for 1 week and then 20 miles the next week, everyday) anyway, the more you run, the better. I have gotten over the stress fractures, and now that I dont 'open up' my stride, I dont get shin splints. Oh, the only thing that I get a break from running from is plantar fasciitis, and even then it is just a week off, and the doctors say keep active, it's the only way to keep it form getting worse. I still think as long as folks are getting some fitness in their life- hoorah for them- this country is in an obesity epidemic and it needs to stop. I do hope anyone who has anorexic or bulimic tendencies gets the help they need.
But it does look like runners are tweetng Kate now, so hopefully she'll listen to their advice.

Wouldn't a good family law attorney also be taking copious notes of all the violations of their custody order that Kate has shown? I mean, how many incidents is it going to take for Jon and/or his lawyer say enough is enough?

Surely, it has been long enough to bring ALL of these NEW violations up to a judge. It feels like I am more outraged than Jon and/or his lawyer.

Enough is enough.

Annie2 said...

Its great that Jon is getting good legal advice. I hope he takes her to court for discussing their custody agreement on twitter. The judge sealed this case early on. Kate needs to be charged with being in contempt of a court order. This is not the first time she has done this and its not the first time she has been found in contempt. She thinks that she is above the law. Its time for the Judge to teach her a lesson. It would be hard on the kids. I think it would be in their best interest to have a mom who respects the law.

Marie said...

What I will never understand is, Kate is free to talk about custody, who has kids when, but Jon, heaven forbid drops the kids off after the fact and gets chewed out.

Dealing with Kate must be like having a root canal. It's never pleasant, you want to avoid it and afterwards you feel awful or worse off.

It's never a two way street with any narcissist, is it? Gee, what do you suppose they do when they come to a four way stop?

Just sad it seems to be one of those that are hard to diagnose, is little available treatment (because we all know they never see anything wrong with themselves, it's with everybody else.)

I have to agree. How much more is Jon and his legal counsel going to take with the crap Kate has pulled on Twitter? I thought there was a ban or something on BOTH of them to talk publicly about it.

kate has broken that rule REPEATEDLY. Makes me wonder if JOn has good legal counsel after all.

I'm outraged by her behaviour not only on Twitter but: letting Colin climb under the big bus, leaving herkids in the car, and leaving them to vacation across the world.

How much more does Jon need to shut this bitch down? It's ridiculous. Come on, JOn, please do something.

Carezee said...

Has Kate mentioned anything about the luncheon since she got back? Do we know how much someone paid for it? Do we know how much this auction/fundraiser actually made? I also didn't quite understand. One of her tweets she says he said no he didn't want to take the kids. The next tweet she said he asked and took them for 24 hours. So which is it? Did he ask and she only allowed 24 hours? I'm a little foggy on this one.

Anne, thanks for replying.Obviously t had Jon been making these twitter statements the sheeple would have wanted him immediately stripped of any parental rights.But if it's Kate,it's all cool. God, these people are so narrow minded!

Pity Party said...

KT is the only person in the whole wide world that I can truly say that I despise. I feel so sorry for the kids caught in the middle of this and for Jon and Ellen. If her fingers are flying she is lying, as when her lips are moving, she is lying. I hope Jon is taking screen shots.

I missed Act 2 on Twitter last night. Within the space of a few minutes, she contradicts herself:

@CJWhodunit @MiloandJack absolutely! And he did ask and took them for 24 hours. I was thrilled!

First she says that SHE asked him to take them, a couple of minutes later, she says HE asked. We all know that they don't have much communication. So who asked first? She makes it sound as though she offered to let him have the kids and he said no. And then at some point later, he came back and said, "Okay, I can do it for 24 hours," and she "was thrilled." The way she put this out there makes it sound as though she wasn't the one in charge. When we all know that's a complete lie.

I give Jon a lot of credit for the 24 hours he did take them when it was not his regular custody time. I am sure he had to do some reorganization of his life to make this possible. Something that Kate, with all of her household help, doesn't have to deal with.

She's a wily one, that's for sure. Can't wait for the overreach that puts her over the line and out of the game for good. I can't believe it will be too long in coming.

Notice how sheepishly her sheeple address these questions: They are terrified that she will go off on them for asking.

Paula said...

A good lawyer will tell you to NEVER go against the legally derived visitation schedule. Jon is doing the right thing here. He is giving Kate nothing to go back to the judge and complain about.

Mark my words, when the money runs out, and it will because she has no job, she will abandon those kids and Jon will be ready and willing to begin care of his children. I imagine Jon knows this anyway.

gotyournumberKate said...

Wow, this witch is crazy. She obviously signed off Twitter to go to bed, continued to read her Tweets, and then got back on to straighten the record. Just more proof that Kate reads each and every Tweet like I thought she did. She needs to shut up. Every Tweet she Tweets buries her further and further in the hole.

I have a theory on Jon not taking the kids more than he does. It's just a theory but does anyone think it's possible he could be trying to send Kate over the edge so he can get full custody? Now that her show has been cancelled and TLC is not paying for nannies when she goes out of town she has to pay for them herself which must be absolutely killing her. She is going to be trying to lean more and more on Jon to have the kids as much as possible. By Jon sticking to the custody agreement that SHE wanted so badly she is stuck paying for sitters that she says she can't afford. It's either that or she stays home which we all know isn't going to happen. Kate then takes it to Twitter to make Jon look bad and put public pressure on him. I could be wrong but I think Jon might possibly just be a genius.

I know it would be best for the kids to be with Jon when she's out of town rather than teenage sitters but he might be thinking long term. I sure hope so.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

There is also the question of child support. If Jon were to play games with Kate and take the kids whenever she went out of town on a whim, would Kate be okay with him reducing his child support for the month? I'm guessing? Hell no!

But child support is based on the amount of time with your kids. If he has the kids more than usual and is supporting them during that time, he shouldn't have to pay for those days because he already is paying his share for those days by supporting them. He might very well be thinking that what she is doing is not fair when it comes to his child support and he's not falling for it.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Let me be clear, ideally it would be great if Jon could have the kids when Kate were out of town. But this is Kate and we all know the kind of grief he would be setting himself up for if he starts doing that. It's very sad. This is what happens when you have children with a narcissist. A good portion of their 18 years is going to be miserable.

Does ANYONE believe this? She learned how to use a computer AND wrote several items for CC in the space of a week? Whilst she was traveling and hobnobbing?

What a BS artist.

JudyK said...

I see Kate is letting her twitter followers know that she's down to a Size 2...she is so self-absorbed and shallow. Remember the RV trip and Jamie talking about how all Kate wants to talk about anymore is how skinny she is. And she was in a manic twitter frenzy last night...she needs to stay off twitter if she wants to get a job or keep the part-time job she has now.

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

The key word is shouldn't. Of course he shouldn't. But it doesn't work that way in PA. A friend of mine, a guy, has his kids from the end of May through September, over summer vacation. He is supporting them during that time, providing them with food, clothing, a place to live. Everything. The kids' mother is still receiving child support payments during that time, even though she's not "supporting" them. His support payments were determined BEFORE this arrangement, and even though he went to court to try to prove that he spends three and a half months as sole custodian of these kids, it didn't matter. His child support payments were not reduced. They are the same as they were before they starting spending the summer months with him.
He's paying her for supporting the kids when he's the one who actually is providing for them.

Gosselin8ComeFirst said...

Kate only wants Jon to take the kids for "extra days" now that it appears she is stuck paying for nannies when traveling since the show ended. Obviously, she has been traveling a lot, but does not hesitate to try to make Jon look bad.

She had NO RIGHT to announce this on twitter,if there is truly a Gag Order on both of them. She also has announced that the kids prefer to be at "their house," yet will not let them/him stay there during visitation with Jon. Wonder why since it is all about the "kids" according to her. This woman is a spinner and can not keep her stories straight. The fact that she is still trying to make Jon look bad speaks volumes. She is a nasty piece of work.

Her self-promotion and "martyr" complex has ALWAYS overridden her kids' needs and it is getting very old.

If the witch chooses to travel, she should not expect changes in their custody arrangement, just because it is convenient for her. She is the one changing rules after being adamant in "normalcy" and "routine" and "consistency. Of course, now that she is actually paying for babysitters, can deviation take place. So many unwarranted insults, so little time. Not sure how she gets away with this... disgusting.

Get your stories straight Kate, and I hope Jon takes action on her unwarranted twitter claims.

@stxmom: @Kateplusmy8 always remember for every 1 negative person talking about u, 1000's of others are supporting you. IS IT OPPOSITE DAY?

____________

Do sheeple really believe this, or are they just telling her what she wants to hear?

Where is Steve when Kate goes into these tweeting frenzies? He is her road manager. Why isn't he managing, telling her to just shut it down? Or, is she sitting at home alone, drinking, and whatever flies off her twitter fingers just well...flies!

I seem to remember the last time she went nuts on twitter, she was silent for a long time, probably realizing what she had said and was embarrassed. There was a pattern to her madness.

Seems Kate's narcisstic rants are full blast when Steve is not around. We must remember, it is all about her and she is not required to obey any Court Orders... well, because she is Kate.To hell with how this effects the kids...

Some things are better left unsaid.

chefsummer said...

Kate knows the kids want to spend as much time with her as she does with them.

Pity Party said...

I preface this by saying I hold her in very low regard, but I really think she does this when she is mad at him for leaving to go to his other family. What happened to those big, exciting, mysterious plans that she was so smiley about Saturday morning. Was that it, getting Jon to take the kids so whats his name would stay, but he left any way.

chefsummer said...

Good for Jon don't sat anything let Kate do all the liying let her say whatever she wants. She will dig her own grave don't play tit or tat with an idiot.

Keep taking the high road in the end when your kids are old enough to understand what's happing the will be proud of you.

_______________

He has had two attorneys, both excellent, the last one is among the best in the area. PA courts historically have sided with the mother no matter what, and I think that Jon would certainly agree with that. There comes a point, though, when you just can't keep going to court because nothing is going to change, except that your finances will be drained.

Gosselin8ComeFirst said...

Okay, getting all my rants out today about what a hypocrite Kate is, but if you are doing a "first run," why not something local? It is all about "traveling," getting away from the kids and trying to keep herself in the spotlight. She made the choice to go to Las Vegas for the marathon. Now that she has to pay for babysitters, she is angry. She really is very transparent. No one is making her go to Vegas.

Stewmama said...

I remember a story being posted about Kate running a race with Cara. A photo was shown with Kate out in front and Steve running behind with Cara. Does anyone remember this? Not sure if I read about this race here or somewhere else. Shouldn't that race be her "first" and not this Las Vegas one? Or maybe that wasn't a marathon. I'm confused.

Gosselin8ComeFirst said...

I think if you are concerned about money to pay your bills, and to "keep a roof over your head and to feed your kids," Las Vegas run is a luxury Kate chooses to afford herself. Can't whine concerns about supporting kids, and then take a vacation for a marathon. Many local marathons.

Kate's priorities are crystal clear. Always about what SHE wants and what she wants, she gets. Regardless of all of her lame claims about concern for money to support her kids. She is the ultimate hypocrite.

chefsummer said...

So Kate doesn't have money to pay a sitter? but she has enough for 2 plane ticket and hotels and meals and, a car to LV.? Sorry something not right here or is it just me.?

Tucker's Mom said...

Wow, I missed Kate's Twitter tantrum last night. Whew! She had a lot of steam to blow off! She is pissed about something, that's for sure. I see she's still trying her best to paint Jon in a bad light. Ugh. She is one nasty, nasty woman.
How does it serve her children to keep putting out there that Jon doesn't want to see them? It doesn't.
I truly wonder what she gets out of trashing him. I guess it's what Dr. Phil calls "leveling', to put others down to build yourself up.
It's no wonder she's managed to alienate everyone around her. I'm betting Jamie's gone too. It's frustrating to try to be friends with someone so self-involved.

I think JOn is getting everything ready & will be all set when the time comes. I know if it were ME, that phone call would have placed last week, & I would have my lawyer working on things right now. It's funny how much information a lawyer can get when things are so public now!

Especially when crazy people like Kate put their kids in the middle, she is using them like pawns. She needs help. Severe, emotional help. An the people stalking her on twitter & her blog are just weird. It's like they're jealous of her. That's the only explanation I can come up with!

Too funny. Have an awesome day Jennaluna! I LOVE your name btw!! And 24 is my favorite #! So weird that you have that name! Huh.
