Kate speaks at Penn State Fayette campus

Kate is scheduled to speak at a satellite campus of Penn State today at noon. The free event in Uniontown will be about "resilience, determination, tenacity, strength!" according to Kate.

The sextuplets were born at Penn State's Hershey Medical Center.

"What gives you, as a cast member of 'Jersey Shore,' the right to interrupt this class and then lecture us on setting a good example?"

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

This was asked by an Ivy League student to Vinnie, who was lecturing there on bullying and deviance, from the reality tv show Jersey Shore. Let's hope students at Penn State satellite campus have the brains to ask Kate something similar.

I am unaware of Vinnie's response.

Well, the Steve Irwin Day website has finally been updated to include this year's brochure of auction items. If you remember, when we posted all the links a couple of weeks ago, the PDF link they had for the auction still linked to LAST year's brochure:

Auction Items - November 13, 2010

This year, all they had was a list on the site with the 13 Grand Auction items:

Steve Irwin Day - Gala Dinner November 12

Now when you click on the PDF link at the bottom, you finally get the new brochure for this year:

Auction Items - November 12, 2011

Here's what it says for Khate's item:

Lunch with Kate Gosselin,
star of Kate Plus 8


Dine with Kate Gosselin at the award-winning Chalk Hotel.

Internationally famous Kate Gosselin is star of the hit reality television series 'Kate Plus 8' and a critically acclaimed author of numerous New York Times bestsellers. Her show follows her and her family through their daily lives, focusing on the challenges of raising a family with twins and sextuplets and was one of the highest rated programs with the fifth season seen by almost ten million viewers.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to personally meet and enjoy a chat over lunch with Kate and eight of your friends at the multi-award winning Chalk Hotel at Woolloongabba.


Package includes

* Meet and greet luncheon with Kate Gosellin for 9 persons
* Photo opportunities with Kate
* 2 course lunch with selection of Australian wines for 9 Adults at the Chalk Hotel on Monday 14 November 2011
* 9 signed copies of Kate's book 'I Just Want You to Know'

Value - Priceless

Terms and conditions:
Auction winner and invited guests must make their own way to the Chalk Hotel located at 735 Stanley Street, Woolloongabba.
Date of this experience is Monday 14 November at 1:00pm. The experience is not able to be rescheduled. The auction item must be utilised as a package and cannot be split into components. Not transferable for cash or credit.

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

So, the Gala Dinner is Saturday, November 12 and that's when the items are auctioned off. Then, Khate will be there for the lunch with 9 people on Monday, November 14th. She'll probably stay there for Steve Irwin day on November 15th as well.

I don't see how the Australia Zoo can pay to fly Khate there (and Steve?), and put her in a hotel for several nights (probably at least from Friday through Wednesday, 5 nights). How in the world do they know what this item will garner at auction? I take it the hotel is donating the lunch for 10 people. So, that's covered. But, the auction winner would have to bid thousands of dollars to cover Khate's airfare, hotel, meals and um, how about money for the zoo? Isn't that the POINT? To raise money for the zoo? Keep in mind that the person bidding will just think they're bidding on lunch for 10, plus the books. They won't know that the zoo incurred several thousands in expenses to bring Khate there and put her up for several days. How does this make any sense? Or is this all part of Terri Irwin's mismanagement of the zoo? Khate gets a freebie vacation and the zoo gets nothing, or actually LOSES money on it? WTH??

Gosselin8ComeFirst said...

Is it possible that Kate is paying her own expenses and then planning to write it off as a chraity on her taxes? God knows she probably needs some deductions with all the grifting she has done this year alone.

This way "Traveling Mom" Kate gets a nice vacation,a tax write off and to get her mug out there for Australian fans?

Seems unlikely, but she has been very quiet about this trip and I am guessing if someone else was paying for it, she would have been gushing about it.

Pray for the kids said...

Let's keep our fingers crossed about the Austrailian trip.....with any luck, the 2 fans she has there will love her so much that she will buy a one-way ticket and stay there.

Without the kids.

Please God, let it happen

The Weatherman said...

Haven't posted for a while, but doesn't Jon have the kids this weekend? (he didn't have them last weekend-when Kate for NYC Sun-Tues) which would mean that Kate will be away ONCE AGAIN on her weekend with the children.
I hope she allows Jon to have them both weekends instead of selfishly leaving them with a nanny just to spite her ex.

Cindy said...

Let's see. Speaking at Penn, blogging about coupons, charity event. How's that "working on tv" working out for you chickie? Loser. Love it!

mama mia said...

Why is she pretending she has no clue who Blankenship is? Jon clearly knew him. Or is caring about who is in contact with your children one of those silly pesky details Kate can't be bothered with?

koopdedoo said...

The posed pics with the branded coupon bag - so bad. Too bad their logo isn't more readable. Do you think they sent her the clothing, or just sent her guidelines?

Kat said...

I don't think blogging about coupons is what Kate had in mind when she said she needed a "job". I doubt that job will keep her in hair extentions and pool boys...

Anonymous said...

I'm glad to hear Kate has landed a new 'gig' with this coupon site. While I'm doubtful that the 'blogs' she writes for them will be riveting because she's certainly not a good communicator, I'm glad she's found something to do that doesn't involve the kids. I predict they will have a ghost writer for her and they are simply attaching her name to their site. I think this is a victory in the sense that she's not on TV and we don't have to see or hear her and (so far) this 'job' doesn't involve the kids.

It is interesting that this is the only career option that has thus far presented itself post-K+8. I think we all knew her options were going to be very limited. It will be interesting to see how long this lasts.

Puddymoors said...

It will certainly be interesting to hear if Kate has any takers for her lunch. I'm tempted to bid $50 and rock up with my friends and ignore her. The Chalk Hotel is not that great so I wonder if Kate will even go!

I don't think the auction will draw much interest as I reckon most Australian's don't know who Kate is.

The Weatherman said...

Kate's post TLC career track is running in parallel with Jon's.
Tabloid TV show interviews [check]
Hokey staged photos for attention [check]
Hater bashing [check]
Jon hocked sponsored links on facebook/Kate is hocking coupons on website [check]
Trip out of the country John-France/Kate-Australia (anything for attention) [check}]
I give Kate another 6 months until she realizes, like Jon has, that media doesn't want her. She'll be working at a mediocre job and the kids will end up having to sacrifice their private school because there is no way in hades that Kate will give up her house and the prestige she thinks it holds.

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

Just one question: Is blogging for Coupon Cabin a better paying job than nursing?

Or is she wasting more time postponing the inevitable?

O.k., make that two questions.

terri said...

So, Kate is speaking at Penn State today. Wouldn't it be helpful if she knew HOW to speak.I just can't believe that no one on her so called "team" has talked to her about her awful speaking pattern. All of the "ums" is not a very good speaker in my opinion.

barbee said...

re:
Internationally famous Kate Gosselin is star of the hit reality television series 'Kate Plus 8' and a critically acclaimed author of numerous New York Times bestsellers.
Needs editing...
Internationally INfamous kg W A S on the crappy reality tv mess blah blah blah and had her name on 3 written items and a plagarized cookbook, ONE of which made the NYT best-trash list. She can now be seen blogging non-stop (WHEN her kids are home) on twitter and updates her website with riveting articles as written by a dog and I'm NOT being harsh about her (dog is a compliment compared to usual comments about her) and some articles that supply the answer to
Is She Smarter Than a 5th Grader
- HELL TO THE NO!!!!!! !! (one for each of the kids, in order of their importance to the cashflow of HER wallet) But there is HOPE in our lives because NOW we can rely on her for wonderful advice on COOPONS. She may even include tips on grifting, 9000 Ways to Ignore your Children, the best fashion looks to use your COOPONS to achieve the aging hooker look, and much more. For the Woman on HER Way Up the Ladder to Success, stick with kate. Look how FAR she's gotten!!!!!! !! (there's those KID visuals again)

Kat said...

Just e-mailed coupon cabin and let them know my disgust...I think they will be sorry they hired her!

who cares about snow said...

The timing of that gala dinner couldn't work out any better for Kate.That weekend and the kids will be off school Friday for Veterans Day.With this long weekend the nanny and camera crew(AKA playmates and clothes dressers)have their work cut out for them.

The Weatherman said...

If you look at the .pdf of the auction items it says "Thanks to Kate Gosselin and the Chalk Hotel.
This leads me to believe that Kate is footing the bill for this trip and the Chalk Hotel is footing the bill for the TWO (2) course lunch. Gee that's pretty meager eatings. But it does include wine (which I think would be much needed especially having to sit with Kate and watch her munch down a salad or some piece of fish wrapped in paper.)

Kate will use this trip as a tax write-off. I've done enough benefits to know that. Of course she can only use a portion of it, but heck a tax-write-off is almost the same as couponing? Right? Free trip with the booby guard, some p-people shots of her flaunting her pin-thin figure in an ill-fitting bikini. It's all for the kids, remember? Oh and the Koala's, and the pervs and the sheeple.

Nobody....Thanks for digging up all that info on Kate's upcoming auction entry.

Package includes

* Meet and greet luncheon with Kate Gosellin for 9 persons

* 9 signed copies of Kate's book 'I Just Want You to Know'

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

When you read it, it sounds like Kate can't even be bothered to eat with the bidders. Sounds like she will be at the hotel to meet and greet them, take a teeth gritting picture, throw her book at them and leave, because she is soooooo busy.

I love that it says it is PRICELESS. The fact that they invited her and feel that she is a worthy auction bid is what's priceless.

Good luck ZOO! I would love to hear what kind of money this item brings in.

terri said...

I also e-mailed coupon cabin to let them know my feelings. I think if they get enough negative feed back they will rethink their decision.

Kat said...

Carol...She is on their homepage :) Isn't it sickening?

Tucker's Mom said...

OK folks, help me out here. I don't understand all the invective sent to Coupon Cabin about Kate.
If you read here, you know I'm not a lover and I am vehemently against exploiting children and their privacy and their images for money, but that's not happening right now. The show is canceled. It's done.
Now, Kate does need to earn an income and I think it will not be now, and will never be from nursing again, which I truly believe is a missed opportunity and a bad decision in the long run. But hey, if Kate can make a go of coupon blogging I say let her do it and succeed at it. It's exceedingly rare to launch a successful blogging career, but it does happen (admittedly, her showing as a blogger and writer to date has been abysmal)
Yet despite that, why are any of you trying to sabotage Kate's effort to earn a living that does not involve filming the kids?
Now, I know that Kate's a study in contradiction what with her crying poor out of one side of her mouth and not changing her lavish lifestyle on the other, but I'm not going to try to purposefully hinder any effort on her part to make a living coupon blogging.
I don't think it will be long-lived, but I'd rather Kate fail on her own than fail just because I personally don't like her.

A little more information about the CouponCabin/Kate Gosselin merger>
_______________________________________
Today CouponCabin.com, winner of multiple affiliate industry awards, announced the addition of a new contributing blogger: Kate Gosselin. Lately of TLC’s reality show Kate Plus 8, Gosselin will blog weekly and provide shopping tips, top coupons, and money-saving advice. At first glance, this move may not seem like an obvious fit. But as she commented in one report on her new gig, “”No matter how much money you have, it’s just smart to use coupons,” she said. “It’s like free money in your pocket.” Clearly CouponCabin is looking to take advantage of both Gosselin’s experience as a mom of eight and her reality TV credentials.

With her first post debuting November 22, it’s no surprise that she’ll focus on Black Friday deals. We’re told she’ll feature 10 special products. Vendors who are members of CouponCabin will have the option to submit their offers and Gosselin will choose her top picks from the list.

This announcement comes on the heels of CouponCabin receiving a $54 million investment from JMI Equity. As of 2011, they offer access to 3,500 stores and over 100,000 offers. In 2010, CouponCabin reported $500 million in online retail sales for its vendors and $300 million in user savings.

...because a child exploiter should not be "rewarded" with a job.

Tucker's Mom said...

Really, Kat? Kate should never be able work again? Tell me, how does that help her kids?
Don't you see the malice in your response and the collateral damage that this campaign against Kate gaining employment could cause?

NJGal51 said...

OT but I apparently should have called Kates crew (dressers of kids) to my house this morning to help ME get dressed. I'm at work and just looked down and realized that I've got two different shoes one. Same style, same brand but one blue and one black. I'll change them at lunch when I go home to let the dog out BUT I've got meetings this morning. Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh!

Tucker's Mom said...

NJGal51, I did that too. Worse yet? I was so stressed out bringing a large seminar together and doing several lectures over the course of 3 days that I could barely think of anything else.
Let's see, I had 2 different color shoes on, same for the knee highs and broke a button on my suit. Let's just say I didn't venture from from behind the podium all day. My cohorts wouldn't walk within 5 feet of me for fear of bad luck!

Kat said...

Tuckers mom...and your point is....?

Tucker's Mom said...

Kat, I've made several good points, but to further elucidate, I think this campaign to to convince any potential employer of Kate, namely Coupon Cabin (the target de jour) is malicious and antithetical to wanting a healthier environment for the children.

Kat said...

Whatever...to put it simply..you can't tell people what to do.... regardless of what YOU think the consequence is..

Dallas Lady said...

I think it's interesting (in a trainwreck sort of way) how many opportunities and relationships Kate has ruined. Someone else did a better list above, and then I started thinking of more of them.

It's sort of amazing to me that one person could have been given so many opportunities (besides the opportunity to exploit her kids, which is wrong) and have blown them ALL.

But that's how she rolls. The path behind her is just littered with people she has discarded and job opportunities she could have turned into something bigger if she weren't so lazy, untalented, selfish and myopic (especially when it comes to overestimating her own talents and skills).

Plus I think when most people experience her up close, they get more than their fill. You can probably smell the dysfunction coming off her.

I don't think there's anything wrong with emailing Coupon Cabin and expressing your opinion. People do the same thing with questionable spokespeople all the time. But really if you look at her track record, you'll realize this, like everything else, won't last long. I think the only reason the TLC show lasted as long as it did is because all she had to do was let her controlling bitch flag fly and order people around. For a long time, TLC edited her to seem a BIT less horrible than she is, but then as we all saw, they showed her in all her glory at the end.

Administrator said...

I have to agree with Tucker that trying to interfere with Kate's new "jobs" when she's not exploiting the kids is malicious. That's the children's mother and at the end of the day they benefit from her employment as she is supposed to support them.

It's one thing trying to stop Kate from doing something that exploits her kids. But most of us here have always said it's not that we don't want Kate to work, it's that we don't want her to harm her children.

Snark is always welcome about her pathetic gigs. But I'm not really keen on allowing people to actively campaign against Kate working at all.

I cannot tell people what to do, but I can ask you to not do it on my blog.

Tucker's Mom said...

Kat, of course I can't tell anyone what to do, but I can question the motives for their actions and wonder if it comports with the mission of this blog, and when does the hatred take over rational thought and actions?
We disagree, Kat and I respect your freedom to campaign against Kate working for whomever you believe she should not be.
I have not now nor ever will tell anyone what to do. After all, I'm not the boss of you.
Moving on, I'll be interested to know if anyone goes to see Kate's talk today to find out how well-attended it was and what she spoke about. And of course, if anyone broaches the topic of the child porn editor who worked on her shows.

Dallas Lady said...

And now that I think about it, the ONLY thing Kate has been successful at has been exploiting her kids. She did it for six years (longer than any other job she's had!) and made a fortune doing it.

Wow. That's truly sad.

And I meant to say that was a GREAT point made above: is writing an occasional (one?) column for a coupon blog really better paying than nursing??? Or does it just allow her to be lazy, spit out a badly worded thing every now and then and continue whining that she wants to be on TV?

My prediction is still early 2012: when she finally has to start realizing she can't have a career in the public eye. Notice I said "start." I don't think she's ever going to have some huge epiphany about herself, but by then it will be painfully obvious even to her that the media world doesn't want her/has no use for her.

gramof5 said...

I personally am happy to see Kate get all these opportunities.
I'm sitting back in my retirement chair, laughing my butt off. Look how far backwards she has taken in her so called career.
From filming in bikinis in Australia, to writing personal (bad) blogs, stealing recipes from the back of Kraft boxes, to make her sheeple think she's an excellent cook, speaking to 15 college kids about how she had singled handed raised 8 kids, sitting with her View girls dressed like a hooker zoombie and now this exciting job of telling the world how to save a quarter on a box of Tampons.
Yeap, I'm real jealous of Kate Gosselin. She's living the kind of life that every mother dreams of.

SG said...

I don't like Kate for many reasons but she does have 8 children to support. While I personally think she needs to get a real job with a real salary I'm not sure what she is qualified to do, aside from nursing. I don't understand why she won't go back to that.

I don't support Kate but I do support any job she has that does not include the children. I'm pretty sure she will mention them on her latest blog and possibly make them clip all her coupons but hopefully they won't be exploited in the process.

Pity Party said...

I agree with Admin about the coupon job. She is not using the kids (so far) and is at least doing a mommy type of job, something she can do from home. I

Pity Party said...

The Chalk Hotel may be footing her room as well. That would leave air fare and she should have enough FF miles for flying (do they still do that).

SG said...

I recently watched a Julia Roberts movie titled Stepmom. It's a movie Kate should see. Ellen may very well be the children's stepmom one day soon and it really is healthier for everyone in the family if the ex and new wife can get along. Especially for the children. Reminds me of the scene where the little boy tells his mom that he likes the fiancé (they didn't get married in the movie) but says "if you want me to hate her, mom, I will."

Ellen is a big part of the children's life right now and hopefully forever. Why wouldn't Kate make the effort to at least meet this person that spends so much time with her children? I really think Kate is not over Jon and is so angry with him for not playing along with the charade TLC set up as a happy couple while their marriage was falling apart.

I don't think Kate is as upset about their marriage ending as she is about their show ending. The end of her marriage was the end of her show/career. She can't get past that.

As for Ellen, she is not a part of the editor scandal and hasn't commented on it. And she shouldn't. Yes she did an interview at that horrible IW site but I read it and her words were misunderstood. The way she worded one statement could have been read two ways and they all read it the way she didn't mean it. They have all hated her since.

Ellen has nothing to do with any of this and I'm not sure why she was brought up. Maybe it was on the last thread but I'm just now catching up with the two latest posts.

Administrator said...

Legally, it could land you in hot water too. There is a tort called malicious interference with employment. You can't try to get someone fired for no good reason other than you don't like them. I always thought of this tort when sheeple were contacting employers back in the day. Just keep toying with fire there, sheeple. However I wasn't aware of any employer who gave a flying flip about a few psychopants, so there was no damages which would invoke the tort.

This is completely different than "FREE SPEECH" letting an employer like TLC know that you don't support them continuing to exploit children. That's different. But Couponwhatever doesn't exploit kids that I can tell. There is no logical reason to contact them other than to try to screw over Kate.

It would take a LOT of frequent flier miles for Kate to fly to Australia for free especially first class as I'm sure she demands on such a long flight. She travels a lot but usually by car to NYC. I doubt she has that much saved up.

As someone else suggested, this more sounds like another stupid financial decision on behalf of the stupid Australia Zoo.

dee3 said...

I have to admit that I agree with Tucker's Mom....because 1) it doesn't involve the children and 2) it's not really a rewarding TV job like she wanted. She would have to settle for being "mediocre" if this is all she can get.

I don't like Kate and don't think she should be rewarded with something like her own talk show...but things like this coupon Cabin and possibly infomercials, I have no problem with. And as much as mothers should be with their children....I think that Kate's are better off the less time she spends around them.

Administrator said...

I like Stepmom too SG. As cheesy as it is the message is a good one. Not only is it good for your children to support everyone in their lives (as long as they are not abusive, etc.) but you also have to think about what if the unthinkable happened and someday you couldn't be there? Those very people in your children's lives may be the only people they have left. So encouraging your kids to have good relationships with them, and fostering healthy relationships among everyone, is only the wise thing to do if anything ever happens.

Dallas Lady said...

I have to say I disagree with this idea that we must support anything Kate does as long as it doesn't involve the kids. Another poster above said she's used coupon cabin as a resource and her email explaining why she won't be visiting their site anymore because of their choice of spokesperson, is completely reasonable.

I've let companies I use know I'm unhappy with their choice of spokesperson. There's nothing wrong with that.

But as I said above, I don't think it'll matter much anyway, as I don't think this "job" will last long at all. Except for exploiting her kids to make big bucks, she's not exactly known for sticking with a job and so many potential employers have rejected her in the past, I have no reason to think this will be any different.

Administrator said...

Ellen is a big part of the children's life right now and hopefully forever. Why wouldn't Kate make the effort to at least meet this person that spends so much time with her children?

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

She claims she hasn't met Ellen. She claims she hasn't met Blankinship. See a pattern here? She doesn't give a crap about screening the people in her children's lives. Ellen has been in their lives EIGHTEEN MONTHS has she finally met her now? Last she said, NO.

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

I don't think for a second that Kate is paying one cent out of her own pocket. I fully believe that this trip is being funded by the Steve Irwin Foundation/Austrailia Zoo. The fact that Kate will likely be there for at least 3 or 4 days does not surprise me either. She probably insisted on some sort of luxury suite for herself and Steve so she could have a break from her 8 (count'em 8) kids. *double snark*

SG said...

I read a recent comment on twitter by a Kate fan. She is always complaining about the non-fans still being interested in what Kate says and does if they dont like her. Then she commented that the fans read the non-fans blogs and tweets because they find it all fascinating. I think that's why a lot of non-fans still read Kate's tweets and the horrible posts on her website. It's fascinating watching someone like Kate spiraling down in her quest for fame and fortune. I've never seen anything like it.

I'm not saying we have to support it. Im not sure anyone said that. I'm saying I don't think we should be intentionally actively trying to stop it. Big difference.

Anonymous said...

Post from MaryAnn --

We have followed the visible life of Kate and observed as she had made so many tragic choices. Tragic, not only for herself, but for the 8 children who are inexorably bound to her.

I have not relinquished the hope that she did save some of the TLC money. Whatever amount, chips are being taken by the poor lifestyle choices she had made. She would be watching the bottom line dwindle.

Despite her bravado and irritating self-centeredness, I wonder if she isn't a very frightened woman. In the dark of her "exhausted" night, she must be scared and lonely. She might not admit that. Poorly place pride is one of her faults.

She had many golden (platter) opportunities and tossed them away. Perhaps she thought there would always be more or better waiting for her. That mis-calculation is a reality she can't ignore forever.

She has tried changing her public personality often. None of the incantations has worked thus far. What would we do if she approached us as a woman -- worried, scared, repentant, and teachable?

She just may get there someday.

Life lessons teach -- sometimes almost too late, sometimes too hard, but they do teach us. (I almost put an exclamation point on that last sentence, but resisted the impulse.)

Beth said...

I agree with Admin. It is malicious and petty to interfere with Kate's employment. Anyhoo, Kate does a good job at shooting her own self in the foot. She doesn't need anyone else to do it for her.

chefsummer said...

I say good for Kate as along as SHE is working or what she call working and.The kids are being kids I say go ahead

Emma said...

I think the haters show their true colors when they attempt to sabatoge Kate's employment in areas that do not involve the children. I'm happy to see the majority of posters here view that conduct as petty and malicious.
Kate should find whatever job she can (sans kids) that pays her the most money for the least time. That way she can fulfill her dream of having her nanny's job.
The last part was snark. Kate seems to relish time away from the eight.
I do hope Jon and Ellen decide to get married. It's different to spend time with your stepmom than it is to spend time with your dad's girlfriend.

Kat said...

I simply told them I wouldn't be visiting their site because Kate is a child exploiter and I choose not to associate with someone who would hire her. If your calling THAT malicious...well O.K. Wow...I guess I hit nerve.

I think people are making a big deal about this new "job" of K8's, way to much of a deal. So far she's scheduled to write one column for an online coupon blog, can't imagine she's getting paid much at all. We all know she can't string two words together by herself, and could not even be bothered to look pleasant for the pap she called to take her picture with their promo items. I have a friend who writes a blog, and has been asked to do a guest column once a month for a newish online travel site that focuses on life after 50 - and she is not getting paid at all to start. Kate and the coupon gig - doubt she can pay any bill with that one.

As for her gig Down Under, what a jpke she and Terri Irwin are with this one. First off, the Zoo is hardly in a financial position to offer her any $$$ to come, and if they are, hope this event gets audited. It is possible she had FF miles for the trip, and by using the kid's miles (another use of her ATM's), she probably can treat Mr. Steve to a first class seat. Can any of you see her actually sitting down to lunch with 9 fan/strangers, so yes, they are probably getting a meet and great in the lobby. And unless she has a real sheeple following, who is going to bid much for lunch with this woman, and gather up 8 friends two days post event, and on a week day to do this lunch? Very bizarre - I have been to more than a few of these charity auctions in my day, and all the ones that we have bid/purchased that involve a dinner, a concert, a sporting event, well, you have months to make arrangements. And if she has opened the kids' wallet so to speak to pay for this, yes, it is her tax deduction (you know how much she wants to help the koala). She will probably be there for no more than a week, and then come home to whine about how exhausted she is from the jet lag. And yes, here we are missing another 3 day school break with her kids - the ones she cannot even treat to a weekend at the beach in the summer. But a trip abroad for her . . .?

As for today's speaking engagement, do you think she knows that hair and makeup are probably not provided at Penn State? Looking forward to the report tho.

Dwindle said...

@ Tucker's Mom, I have to say I agree with you. Even if she did lower herself to a mediocre nursing job, there would be those that would make their displeasure known to her medical employer, and jeopardize that too, and that isnt good for the kids. Just like when she saw to it that Jon couldnt work there for awhile, she may have felt pleased with her viciousness, but in the end the kids may have seen their daddy temporarily down and out, and Kate suddenly realized that he wasnt going to be able to financially support her the way she demanded.

Yeah, she got this little nothing, mediocre gig by trading on her fame as a woman who birthed 2 sets of multiples, but doing this faux-blogging is the only thing she can drum up at the moment. And I think it *IS* good for the kids to see her doing something other arranging camera time. Just my opinion.

Of course there could be those who are hoping that Kate's ultimate come-uppance will be one of financial destitution and having to relinguish all custody of the children to their father. But she is young and strong and healthy and that will likely never happen, she will be able to find some kind of meager income.

Yesterday during all the talk about filming during potty training and one little girl's 'unnawears' etc, I had an awful visual: of Kate scolding the toddler to hurry hurry, we are FILMING you know! Now hurry up and pull down your pants for these nice men with the cameras! I am seeing more in my mind's eye than I used to about this now. Same thing with that awful scene of Jon hosing down those girls in the tub while they stood there naked, with 2 or 3 other adults in that tiny bathroom aiming cameras at their naked bodies. I think I always KNEW it, but never allowed myself to picture it, but now with this pedophile having access to the film, I suddenly 'see' it all happening and it's really really gross.

SG said...

I don't think voicing your concerns to a company that you do business with is "malicious."

I don't use Coupon Cabin so, while i think they made a very poor choice to use Kate as one of their writers, I don't feel a need to personally oppose their hiring her.

While I don't support their choice and I don't like to see Kate glorified in any manner as a mother, maybe she is a great coupon-er (?) and good for the job.

I just see it as a fine line. We want Kate to get a job and support her children without using them as a means of support. Those children need their mother to have an income to support them. She is no longer using her children as a means of support, although we know she is still trying by her own admission.

No, I don't think Kate deserves a media career or tv show of her own because I think she is a horrible person. However, if she does it on her own without her children I won't try to stop her. I won't support her by watching it or reading her blog, etc. but I won't try to stop it. In actuality it may all be good for a laugh. To me Kate on DWTS was a good laugh. And it brought in an income.

I don't see her new coupon blogging as something that will send her off into stardom and get her the fame and fortune she craves. It will put food in her kids mouths. Probably pay for their monthly snacks at least.

SG said...

Sorry if my comments are somewhat garbled. I am on my iPhone. I have been without internet since Saturday. I don't know how Kate wrote a whole book on her iPhone! ;)

kidsRaBlessing said...

It's been awhile since I 've posted, but I could not believe Kate's reaction to the child pornography charges on Bill Blankenship. SHE didn't KNOW him?? Who is she fooling? HOW could she not know him? Did you see how TINY that production company was? This is horrible on all levels what that man could have done with the footage and pictures of the 8G's. This woman is a JOKE and a PATHETIC mother. She should be doing everything right now to keep her life and that of the kids private.....Cara and Mady are old enough to understand what has probably happened here. How devastating this is and Kate is oblivious. She worries more about keeping herself relevant, than seeking a quiet and private life for her kids. I fear for the children's futures. They have so many hurdles to deal with. As far as couponcabin, that's fine that she is working for them, but I will unlike them on FB. She is a hypocrite, and nobody I care to support in any matter. She is definitely on her way down, from her pedestal.

PJ's momma said...

I agree with Tucker's Mom, Admin, and others. People can do what they feel is right, but Kate sabotages every single opportunity all on her own. She is a massive fail and she will probably fail at this too. How much could they possibly be paying her for an occasional blog anyway? (People who actually do coupon to survive are up in arms because they feel one of them should be given that opportunity in this awful economy, and I agree.) Maybe she took it, thinking it will open bigger doors, but she can't even be bothered to post her latest gigs on her website under upcoming events. How many have there been in the past few weeks? Radio show, The View, this college thing, plus the auction coming up and the 1/2 marathon.......all the website ever says is 'coming soon.' I know it seems like it's taking forever, but eventually the comped hair will go away (and thus her 'friendship' with those folks), the gigs will dry up (they're getting more mediocre by the week) and she will fade into obscurity.

Parent and Alumna said...

The timing of that gala dinner couldn't work out any better for Kate.That weekend and the kids will be off school Friday for Veterans Day.With this long weekend the nanny and camera crew(AKA playmates and clothes dressers)have their work cut out for them.

School is in regular session on Veterans Day. No long weekend.

The Bitter End said...

I doubt that Katie Irene's submitted "blog" will be the final published version. These companies that deal with the internet and social media hire among others, as entry level workers, college graduates who have demonstrated the willingness and ability to also write for school newspapers, blogs, complete advertising internships, etc. These are the types of extra curricular activities that are sought after and rewarded by a job offer.

My take on this is that Katie will submit her material. The material will be edited, fumigated, sanitized and probably rewritten. Things like references to legless chickens will be removed. Then the finalized blog will be published with Katie's name attached. The sheeple will gush and praise and life will be good again.

-----------------------
Hi Dwindle - Being a nurse *involved in direct patient care* is the LAST thing I want to see Kate doing! (other than screwing her kids, of course) I've spent a LOT of time in hospitals the past year or so and I can't even begin to imagine how much pain and misery someone like her could cause to someone who's probably already in pain and miserable. If she could find an administrative job or something involving only paperwork, I'd have no problem with it (not that I think she'd be any good at it). Obviously, whether I object or not is irrelevant - but I do think she could and would do a lot of damage in a patient care situation.

mama mia said...

Coupon clipping is the perfect job for Kate, she can lend her "expertise" on how to get stuff for nothing just by cutting family and friends out of her life. Oh, it is not about cutting friends and family? Okay, she can share her expertise on how to use your kids to get free stuff. Oh, it is not about using kids? Screw it then, it is a job and it is Kate Gosselin.

Wait a minute...... said...

From the other topic:

"is EVERYTHING kate does ok. can't they ever say "im a fan but i disagree with xyz""

Kind of like a hater isn't allowed to say "I am not a Kate fan, but I disagree with picking apart everything she does and prefer to concentrate on the things she does that truly harm her children or other people?"

Because when I say those things like this, I'm called a sheeple. Even though I've been a regular at this blog for a long time, was at GWOP before that, am banned from BM's site, and have disliked Kate from the first episode I saw of J&K+8.

Regarding my comment yesterday about how we don't know what Kate is actually doing/thinking about the Blankinship issue. I actually don't think that she should be saying anything public about it - the things she is actually saying, or the things you think she should say. But my point was that we don't know that she *isn't* behind the scenes throwing her guts up, crying, worrying, calling her lawyer, calling TLC, etc. She tends to have an unconventional way of dealing with everything - why are we surprised that she's handling this in an "abnormal" way? But in cany case, her public actions could still be a cover for how she is really feeling and what she is really doing. The potty training and bathing episodes were several years ago - it's possible that she DOES regret it, but won't admit it publicly. The Kate that extists now won't ever admit she is wrong. She will never do that without years of therapy, or some other sort of intervention. But even if she did start admitting that she was wrong, she can't go back an undo the past, so what would it accomplish in the grand scheme of things, and specifically for the children involved in the recent child porn sutation?

I'm just as appalled as the next guy about the Blankinship story. I think the fact that he was a TLC writer/editor and had access to the Gosselin potty training/bathing pictures has completely overshadowed the scope of this child pornography bust, and what the pictures they found were actually of. It's horrifying. But my disgust is directed at him and his cronies, not at Kate and Jon's stupid mistake to allow that kind of filming of their children. THEY are the criminals. Whether or not Kate and/or Jon admit publicly now that it was a mistake does not make one bit of difference as to how many children were harmed by these horrible people.

Cammie said...

I'm torn about writing to coupon cabin. I like that Kate is making a little money (I doubt it is anything big) without using her kids (though I suspect she will use examples of her kids in her blog, so they will lose privacy with that).
I am an avid couponer. My husband salary was cut and our health insurance is higher then our mortgage now. I'm not a crazy hoarder like on extreme couponing but I do spend 2-3 hours a week planning and and I feed 6 kids(I have had 3 extra kids staying with me for this school year due to a family illness and take care of them for free) and 2 adults for under $50 a week. It includes fresh fruits/veggies(yes I volunteer at a produce co-op at get free produce but Im sure Kate would never do manual labor for 2 hours every 2 weeks), meat, school lunches, and household products like detregents and toilet paper. Kate with all her watseful spending is an insult to the real couponers. I meet and trade coupons with several groups in my area. The average couponer is the struggling middle class not a multimillioner with 5 cars , hired help, and private schools. I would rather coupon cabin take an average mom that is getting her 8-10 kids (I could nominate at least 5 moms in my coupon group with 8 or more kids) feeding them healthy for under $300 a month not $2k or whatever Kate talked about!
Kate is not a real couponer. She just is an ocassional user for show.

But you don't get it either. If they had used their heads and not allowed filming of their children in private situations, they wouldn't be facing this right now. What is appalling is Kate's statement, "there are some things they've captured that I would, perhaps, it's going to make me squirm. But you know they can use what they capture because I don't care." This means naked children!

She doesn't care! That speaks volumes. It was not just some stupid mistake they made. This was an error of enormous proportions that affected the lives of their children, and Kate doesn't care.

Pam said...

So she's going to speak about tenacity, resiliance, strength and determination, but the crazy b*tch broke down and cried when the power went out.

What an eff'ing hypocrite.

Westcoaster said...

"Kate is not a real couponer. She is just an occassional user for show"

Kate is pretty much an occasional everything - occasional runner, occasional blogger, and worst of all, an occasional mother of 8. And she is pretty much all about the 'show' - no depth there at all. I can understand how fans of this coupon blog would rather see someone of their own offered the opportunity to write a column, and get paid for it. No one here needs to express an opinion over there; it is apparently being noted by their community as well.

SG said...

Didn't Shoka say that Kate cried about the snow?

SG said...

Wait a minute...

Of course we don't know how Kate is handling the Pedophile news in private. However, we do know that her twitter demeanor was happy and excited about being on The View and being made up as a zombie and her upcoming speaking engagement. Also, when she did finally choose to address it she chose to use it as an opportunity to bash Jon. Obviously she was allowed to address it because she did. I think how she chose to address it was in poor taste and made her priorities seem to be all about Jon.

SG said...

Pam,

Great point. Kate is a walking contradiction.

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

Actually, I get it quite clearly. My views on this subject aren't clouded by hatred and bitterness towards Kate like many others' are. I'm not ripping on her writing skills, emailing a coupon site trying to get her fired, expressing aghast because her children didn't get to carve pumpkins this year, or any of the many things that are discussed over and over and over here.

Kate made the statement about "not caring" what they film awhile ago. I don't recall how long ago, but in any case, long before the story broke about how dangerous it can be to allow your children to be filmed naked. It is entirely possible that she now regrets her decision to allow certain kinds of filming - we don't know whether she does or doesn't. Sometimes it takes something like this happening to make people see the error of their ways. Would most people have realized that before they signed on to do a reality show? Of course. But that doesn't mean that Kate hasn't changed her mind since she made the statement about "not caring."

If I reworded my statement to:

"But my disgust is directed at him and his cronies, not at Kate and Jon's error of enormous proportions that affected the lives of their children."

...does that make a difference? No. It still was an error that was made years ago, and one that can't be undone simply by saying "I shouldn't have done that." The criminals are still the ones who were in possession of pictures of children having sex. They are the ones who are worthy of the vast majority of the disgust, and examples of reasons we need more laws to protect children on reality television.

Yep! Such a strong person she is, huh?


She melts down over the smallest of things, yet is going to speak about having strength....LOL.

I'd say the only strength she has is in her hands when she wollops her kids' behinds.

Pray for the kids said...

From filming in bikinis in Australia, to writing personal (bad) blogs, stealing recipes from the back of Kraft boxes, to make her sheeple think she's an excellent cook, speaking to 15 college kids about how she had singled handed raised 8 kids, sitting with her View girls dressed like a hooker zoombie and now this exciting job of telling the world how to save a quarter on a box of Tampons.
Yeap, I'm real jealous of Kate Gosselin. She's living the kind of life that every mother dreams of.

Regarding the pedophile editor. I think many of us has personally experience some form of sexual harrassment and understand how demeaning & disgusting it makes you feel. I experienced my first internet harrassment over 10 years ago when the internet was fairly new. After that disgusting experience, I am very careful about posting my personal info online and who I am friends with. I am twitter friends with a very young French model, (very pretty and sweet kid. I sent her a very stern tweet to not post her personal "half undressed photos" online because of the bad people out there. Not 1 day later, I see a tweet from her telling someone to "leave her alone, she is a child". I tweeted her right away to block the person and tell her parents if they continue to bother her. That nite, her mgmt. team went into her acct. and did some clean up work. I am also friends with my friends' children, I try to keep my eye on them because I am childless and I care enough to help out when I can. We all as strangers are terrified about what may have happened with the Gosselin 8 and that editor. Their own mother is more concerned about her gigs than this.

As to her Coupon Gig, this is only temporary, this bitch does not want to give up the limelight. All these appearances are just to keep her name out there until something comes up.

Mel said...

Kate made the statement about "not caring" what they film awhile ago. I don't recall how long ago,

She made the statement about not caring on or about August 8, 2011. I wouldn't say that August of this year is all that long ago. Certainly not years ago. Or a decade ago.

but in any case, long before the story broke about how dangerous it can be to allow your children to be filmed naked.

Good god. It wasn't long before this story broke. It was months before the story broke.

And furthermore, are you really, really, really trying to say that she only JUST NOW realized in light of this latest pornographic editor story that it's dangerous to let your kid be filmed naked????

Where has she/you been the last 20 years?????? Good grief! Any moron knows that you don't film your kid(s) naked and disseminate the film to the world at large. Cuz this is exactly what happens.

You'd like to think it wouldn't, but it does. You take the necessary precautions.

Good god. How dumb can you be!!!!!!!

+++++++++++++++++
WHEN she said it has no relevance whatsoever. The fact is that she said it. Even if she said it when they started filming, way back when, it still was her statement that they could film whatever they wanted and she didn't care. It shows her mindset, regardless if it was then or now. She allowed them to be filmed in various stages of undress. I don't care if they were babies at the time, or seven years old. She still permitted it, knowing that they had footage that would be questionable, and still SHE DIDN'T CARE! Wouldn't you think that at some point she would say, "Hey, who, besides the crew has access to this footage, and what are they going to do with it? How much is there that I didn't see?" Nope. SHE DIDN'T CARE!

SG said...

Also she made that statement about not caring after Jon's comment about pedophile's getting enjoyment out of watching his children was made public.

Kate seems very aware of what the naysayers say about her. She has freely admitted it. She knows that the non-fans have been outraged by the children being filmed naked and half-naked.

It also came up when Jody and Kevin mentioned the potty scenes as well as Rep. Murt.

Kate has been fully aware for YEARS that her children being filmed naked was a huge concern for some. Just not for her.

Did any kids show up at all?

I think calling someone a moron and dumb is pretty darned insulting.

I didn't say YEARS, or DECADE, I said "awhile." I also said I couldn't remember how long it was (forgive the heck out of me, I don't obsessively follow every move Kate makes). And yes, I do believe that it takes something like this happening to open some peoples eyes to what can happen. It doesn't matter whether she said it the day before or 100 years before the event if it takes *the event.* And please note that I didn't say MY EYES, and I also said above "Would most people have realized that before they signed on to do a reality show? Of course."

Call Kate dumb and a moron if you wish, but I'll ask that you not assume that I am also one.

PJ's momma said...

I think that comment that Kate made about not caring about the footage was in reference to herself - that's why she'd squirm - not to the kids. If I recall, it was an answer to a question (Kate answers your questions!) because she was shown very badly (i.e., as herself). I really believe this, because Kate does not think about anyone but herself until she is forced to. And now she is being forced to think about the ramifications of their poor choices in regards to their innocent children. When she made that statement, it was only in response to a question about herself - not the kids. Not that it matters!!

anger issues kate said...

Tucker mom and Admin: I think why people here are not happy about Kate's choice in jobs, is cause this blogging is not a job, in the mediocre/normal sense. And the reason Kate won't go back to nursing(where it a steady job, health insurance etc, is cause Kate does not want to do HARD MEDIOCRE, NORMAL, SOMETIMES DIRTY WORK) Kate is still thinking of herself, for a divorced mother of 8, who has to support herself and her kids, and collect child support, pay bills etc, she not thinking of health insurance for herself and the kids(if Jon's does not cover them, unless they are still covered under TLC, that is if TLC gave them health insurance.) Coupon blogging does not have health insurance and is not really a steady pay check. Kate took this job, cause really, she does not have to leave the house, and can blog when she feels like it. That is not what I call a steady paying job, I call it an extra job. Kate has no expertise in anything, let alone couponing. I use coupons, look for bargins, shop everywhere from: dollar to discount to mainstream stores. I probably know more about shopping advise than Kate could only dream of. I know where to look. If you are a crafter, you know where to look all the time, it's in you 24/7. Kate does not have that. She knows how to grift. People who use this coupon site are outraged, they don't need advise from someone who does not even follow her own advise and takes, from others and calls it her own. After seeing her on both of her shows and what that idiot tweets, about being organized(yeah, having someone come in and organize for you and the RV trip) , cleaning house(she complains about how messy her bedroom is, on tweeter), dealing with a power outage(not being prepared)etc, why would anyone take advise from her. I looked at that coupon site, they have advise for lots of stuff: from crafts, to shopping, couponing etc., Kate can't do any of that with any kind of expertise. Kate is the person who reads the back of the book, but never opens it to read the story, it's like reading Cliff Notes. Then parade around and act like they know everything. But oh baby but put them on the spot/corner them, they have 9 million excuses and blame everyone else or ignore you.
As for those pics STAGED! People out there and here, don't need advise to shop or black friday. Kate does not shop in with crowds. So advise on black friday would be garbage. I know people who plan for black friday, at least a month before, do their homework and wait outside the store, sometimes camping out. Since Kate has never done anything like that, how can she give advise on this? Anyone can coupon, the ones that should do the advise thing is the ones who are on Extreme Couponing, I've watched this show a few times, think these people are Hoarders, what do you do with all that food, unless your doing it for a charity or church, sorry people food gets old, before you get to it.

Pray for the kids said...

I am disgusted by the complete ignorance of the sheeple who say that since Bill B. didn't have direct contact with the kids then its okay or that Kate is basically off the hook.

What bothers me is that the only way these idiots will shut up will be when it is proved that the g8's pics are indeed in this guys possession....we've all said that he has access to the unedited tapes of baths, etc, so I don't have to rehash that. Those poor babies - growing up and having to face that.

The sheeple are the the kind of people who think that kiddy porn is no big deal. Think about that. Its horrible. And they stand behind Kate so much that they will overlook this as "just one of those things" or want to proved that any images that were printed from this moron were photoshopped and its not "really" the g8......NOT THE POINT!!!

We can try to convince these idiots that it is a very serious matter, but a wise man once said "you can't have a battle of wits with an unarmed person..."

I can't believe that Kate isn't the least bit interested concerned or curious to know if Pervy had pictures of her kids amongst his kiddie porn for personal use or distribution. "I don't know him" completely disregards the real concern: her kids. She had an opportunity to show her concern over this on the View, but clearly the ladies weren't allowed to discuss it on air. It's all about her and her nonexistent showbiz career. She doesn't even understand that she was not responsible for the initial success of JK8, Jon and the kids were as they battled against the evil bitch Cruella deVille.

anger issues kate said...

So what couponing would Kate do? She buys organic, I don't ever remember Whole Foods doing coupons? They deal in off brands, that most of us never heard of. So no coupons there. Kate does shop at Giant Foods, for the kids. Target, Bed,Bath. Kate never shops at Walmart, Aldee, Kmart etc. So how can she be a expert? Kate is a JOKE!

That was my impression given the context, "wow, they can really make you look bad", and Kate agreed. She seemed to not care as she could rub her wounds with the bags of money she was making.
But, it is obvious that we can extrapolate on that sentiment somewhat because we have all seen evidence of the kids being filmed in private, exposed moments, and to the best of my knowledge, Kate has never shown anger or remorse or any introspection whatsoever about what has been witnessed and filmed first hand by the crew.
To that end, Kate has not shown much caring about what has made it to air when it came to the whole family. It was all fair game and grist for the mill.

Until today I have never heard of CouponCapin. Not that I don't use a good coupon here and there like everybody else. However...I am curious to see just how much money this job would make compared to a standard nursing salary.

So sad .... so true said...

This is from someone at Kate’s speech:
@Kateplusmy8 I will babysit! I’ve watched every episode and feel like I know them all personally.<3

Folks,

This is getting just a little too angry here. I think, and it's just my humble opinion, that everyone should back off a little.

Not every post needs to be replied to.

If you are angry about something, you *** can *** keep it to yourself.

Not every post here is directed at you.

Somethings are *** simply opinions *** and you don't have to agree with them. Nor do you need to respond to them if you don't agree.

No mo, as much as you don't agree with Kat's post, it really isn't your place to demand a recant or demand that she not post here again unless she does.

I say, everyone take a breath. There are many more things in this world that ARE worse than kart's behavior, believe it or not.

Child pornography is horrible. But it isn't the only horrible thing.

Everyone has opinions. Everyone has the right to voice those opinions. Everyone has the right to disagree with them.

But here on this blog, it is not appropriate to bully or demand someone recant or not post opinion.

This whole porn debaucle and kart has everyone up in arms. Even in anger, there are ways to communicate that are not bullying or rude.

If you truly aren't happy with the flavor of the conversation here, you are free not to sign in. I take breaks from time to time in order to not call out folks in rude ways. Keeps my blood pressure down too.

I enjoy reading the comments about coupons. In my area and adjacent Delaware it is One coupon per item. I saw a copper double boiler that I wanted madly, badly. I waited 2 years for it to finally go on sale. My patience extends in other areas. No coupons available, then it is watch and wait

SG said...

What did I miss? Kat said a child exploiter should not be rewarded with a job. You don't have to agree with that statement. But what was wrong with it? Did I misread or misunderstand her comment?

Well said, Permanent Name. I couldn't be more in agreeance.

Dallas Lady said...

I'd like to co-sign everything Permanent Name just said.

Her gig with a coupon blog isn't even going to be taken as seriously by HER as it is by some of us! So....eh!

I'm interested to know how few people attended her "talk."

One college student tweeted about it and one of her friends, who was there too, tweeted: "Wait a minute. Kate Gosslin is lecturing us on the importance of college to get what we want, but her fame came from popping out 8 asians..."

The other girl's response was "LOL!"

From what I can see, three people tweeted that they saw her in person. One person was asked how many we're there and they said "not many" and were mostly young. The one I'm referring to went there with her mom, so even younger than college age.

Westcoaster said... "Kate is not a real couponer. She is just an occassional user for show"

Kate is pretty much an occasional everything - occasional runner, occasional blogger, and worst of all, an occasional mother of 8. And she is pretty much all about the 'show' - no depth there at all. I can understand how fans of this coupon blog would rather see someone of their own offered the opportunity to write a column, and get paid for it. No one here needs to express an opinion over there; it is apparently being noted by their community as well.

________________________________________

I agree with both points, that Kate is an occaisional couponer for the show. She is not an expert by any sense of the immagination. She's an amateur.

I also agree that this won't last long. She may do one two or even three blogs and that will be the end of that. She'll get bored with it fast, especailly if her a#$ isn't getting kissed enough by whomever (the blog members, the blog founders etc...).

As I mentioned in the previous thread, I'm an avid couponer (not Extreme though). I belong to a number of coupon communities and blogs. Those people, who work and provide for their families are the ones deserving of the opportunity of being asked to blog about it.

But I can't really say that I resent Kate having a job. It's good she's working, I just wish she'd stay out of my area of interest. I guess the only reason I resent her blogging about couponing and invading my "couponing space" is because she's a fake. She doesn't coupon, she just pretends she coupons. Why can't she blog about something she knows a lot about, like orange tans, acrylic nails etc...

Kat gave her opinion. Nothing at all wrong with giving her opinion.

NJGal51 said...

I say let her have at it with her "mediocre" blog job. I think that they'll probably have someone else write the column once she turns in her first one and they'll just slap her name on it. If and this is a big IF, this leads to some TV appearances as the coupon queen she'd better have an ear piece in the whole time because I don't think that she could talk about anything other than "I cut the coupons out and arrange them in a container and then go to the grocery store". She's not a real couponer. Welcome to the world of mediocrity Kate.

Aeduko said...

Kat, I would like to respond to your comment. Unfortunately, anything that impedes Kate from supporting her children hurts THEM. This is my opinion on it, can't speak for anyone else.

The people on this blog have also been very vocal in the past that they don't care what Kate does as long as it does not involve the children being placed front and center in it. This does not, it capitalises on her SuperMom persona, which is, indeed, just a persona :).

Administrator said...

Wait a minute, your opinion that only the pedophile should be blamed is not consistent with the law, that charges parents with protecting their children. The question is, did they fail to protect from this foreseen circumstance? My opinion is YES.

SG said...

I personally don't have a problem with what Kat said. I don't agree with it in this instance but generally I would feel the same way.

Kate got this job because she is being touted as supermom. Super organized mom with 8 children. She only got this coupon job because she is famous. She is famous because she exploited her children and was made to stop or she would have continued.

In any other circumstance I too would say a child exploited should not be rewarded with a job because they were good at exploiting their children.

Bottom line for me in this instance is she has 8 children to support.

If the pedophile editor has 8 children to support would I want him to be let out of jail and get a blogging job because he's now famous for exploiting children? No. But his 8 children would suffer just the same. Sometimes the children suffer the most and it's not fair to them. So what is fair? I don't know.

I won't blame Kat for her opinion. She can't get past the child exploitation. That's hard for me too.

I don't compare the actual acts of child exploitation in this instance. In my eyes one far surpasses the other because there are degrees of exploitation. Obviously.

Okay I typed this on my iPhone so I can't review what I wrote. I hope it makes sense.

Basically I support Kate doing a job that doesn't include her children. Whether she deserves it or not.

I'm curious too, Dallas Lady.

If it's true that not many people showed up at Kate's lecture, then it must have been pretty devastating to Kate's ego.

I mean really. What advice could she possibly add that these kids haven't heard already?

The lecture she should have been about how to get your way by manipulating people, and scoring freebies. Kate's got that down to a science.

Westcoaster said...

I don't resent K8 having a job, not at all, what bothers me is that this is not a real job, this is as someone else said, an "extra" job. All she is about is the quick, the easy, the fake out. Without her TV show, she needs a job that has a salary, benefits, the whole 9 yards, in order to support her children. Her ex now has one of those real jobs; it will take two of them to actually support their large family since neither is particularly well educated or skilled. K8 is not looking for anything real unless it is somehow connected to the media that only she thinks she is good at and entitled to.

Happy that she's working and not her kids, but everything she is doing is really not real work. Fine if she has bucks socked away, but let's not get excited about a very part-time blogging gig.

Gabby2 said...

As for couponing...she will fail, as she has failed everything she has ever done by herself.

She should get out of PR work as her name is mud. She could do billing for a health insurance company like Cindy Anthony, or many other jobs that don't require publicity, or to be in the public eye. Star wants to continue to be a diva "star" and that isn't going to happen.

As for her Australian trip, she probably is paying for it and probably DESPERATE for alone time with Steve.

I think the only time she has privacy with her paid lover/manager is when they are traveling. I think she is still hoping for a ring.

PaMa said...

Well, I made it through Kate’s presentation at Penn State Fayette and want to make my comments now, so I can wipe the whole experience out of my mind. In the lobby outside the auditorium, there were several signs posted, “Any Disrespect for Penn State Guests Will Not Be Tolerated.” If I were Bette Davis, I would have thought, “Hold onto your seatbelts. It’s going to be a bumpy ride.” But, I didn’t see any armed security around or any placard-carrying picketers. And the people milling around looked pretty mild-mannered, so I figured it was safe to enter the auditorium. To start off, she was 25 minutes late coming out, which is a bad way to kick off a speaking tour … but the good thing is that it gave me plenty of time to check out the audience. The auditorium appears to hold about 425 people. Because everyone was spread out everywhere, it was a bit hard to tell exactly how many were there, but my best guestimate is 200-225. Of that total, it seemed that maybe 20% were college students and/or affiliated with the organization sponsoring Kate. The audience members were all ages, from 18-75, with a few kids who must have skipped school thrown into the mix. To me, the preponderance seemed to be in the 30-40 year-old range and the 50-60 year-old range. About 95% or more were women, but there were a few downtrodden-looking older men who must have gotten dragged along by their wives. There was one 40-ish looking man, sitting by himself, who, if I had to pick a stereotypical-looking child porn pervie, he’d be the one. Lurping in on conversations around me and in the lobby waiting to get in, I think I can safely say that this was a crowd of devoted fans.

Set up on the stage was a microphone and 2 stool, one tall and one shorter. I knew Steve was there, because a couple of times he peeked his head out a side door, I suppose to make sure the devoted followers were showing up. I was thinking the second stool was for Steve, so he could protect Kate if any zealous fans stormed the stage. But someone set a bottle of water on the shorter stool and I knew then Kate was going to go it alone. At 12:25, they announced that the big moment had arrived and that there would be Q&A’s afterwards, followed by a Meet & Greet in the lobby.

At that point, Kate, carrying a stack of cheat sheets, clomps across the stage to her stool. (If she insists on wearing those really high heels, she really should sign up for some lessons in how to walk in them.) And … wait for this … Kate looked pretty good. I think we’ve seen this outfit before … it was a form-fitting print dress (blue, white, black/brown swirls, ¾ sleeves, maybe 3-4 inches above her knees and, if she were wearing a t-shirt, I’d say it was a crew neckline) and black pump, high-high heels. Now, I usually don’t snark on Kate, but because my attention wandered during her presentation, I had plenty of time to check out the small stuff. First of all, under the bright stage lights, her veneers are so white they almost appear blue-white. And secondly, since she didn’t really sit on the stool, but leaned against it, I could see that her calves are really big and muscular and she does have cankles. Actually, from my angle, it appeared that her calves are about the same diameter as the part of thighs right above her knees. Go figure.

Oops, not to be overly dramatic, but I’ll have to continue later this evening with the actual presentation, Q&A’s and Meet & Greet, since I have to start dinner (yes, I am a normal mom-type person who puts her family first). The rest is the boring part. Kate didn’t say anything new and shocking … same old, same old.

NT said...

Has anyone known if Kate has ever gone shopping at the crack of dawn on Black Friday? That's what she is going to blog about on her first blog. How did she ever get this job? Someone really talked a blue streak for her to get this job. There's only 2 instances where she's been seen using coupons. I just don't get it. I just hope she doesn't give out some lame advice and people believe it and it's no help to them at all.

_____________________________
I said I would understand if you wasted me not to post here and I do. It's not running me off, I just understand.

I do,however, want to make sure my comment wasn't interpreted different than what I said. I did not demand a recant nor did I say she couldn't post here with out one any more. What I was saying was, and maybe my wording wasn't clear, if she doesn't recant she should not comment that she cares about the kids here anymore.

Kate has been tried in the court of public opinion and found guilty by most. If you took this case to a court of law it would probably be thrown out or not guilty base on hear say and personal opinion.

Any job I am seeking and sincerely apply for has a rite to do a background check for any law I have broke and if I would be danger to them because of it. There is a reason the laws that protect you and me from company's, judging hireling practices on the basis of opinion from former employers, are made.

Any company that hires on the basis of a persons lifestyle or belief should be shut down immediately. It is prejudges no matter what way you want to look at it. Are we going to learn from history or repeat it. We may as well become KKK, skin heads, gang members, etc., if we are going to keep people from obtaining employment because of our opinions.

Yes we need to protect those who can't protect themselves, and that has been done. The show has been canceled. We can't judge her on what she might do in the future, only what she does today. Worry about her exploiting the kids with this job when she does it, not before she does it.

I can truthfully say this post is not written in anger this time. Just explaining and answering some of what has been posted about my comment.

If couponcabin.com is such a big website/entity, they must have more bloggers than just Kate. She can't be the only blogger that is hired by them.

I don't think the job is as prestigious as it sounds. I also agree that it's a good job for her if she doesn't involve the children. Kate, let them enjoy what is left of their childhoods.

For those who are thinking that Kate can write the trip to Steve Irwin's Zoo off as a charitable contribution, it's not going to happen. For tax deductible status it must be a US charity, nonprofit or organization. There are very limited rules for contributions outside the US and they cover Canada, Mexico and Israel.

Forgive me for stating the obvious;

Exactly how many "money saving tips" will she write about?

Here's one; don't buy crap you can't afford....um, Kate...how's the Audi?

All money-saving tips are common sense or can be looked up on-line....you just know that she'll just copy and paste from yahoo or sites like that.

How can this "job" sustain a family of 9? If it was a 5 day a week deal, that would be one thing, but how often will she "contribute" to the blog? Once a month? Every other month? Will she get paid per blog?

Kate - the coupon blog is a hobby, or something you do when your kids are around and you want to ignore them.....are you THAT lazy that you are determined NOT to work a real job???

Great example for the kids.

Bibby said...

I just think it's funny that she believes her "life story" is something that is inspirational. So what, she popped out 6 kids at one time and had to scrape under the couch for coins and get welfare for a season in her life. That's what can happen when neither spouse has a college degree and chooses to have so may children. Everything that happened to her was by her OWN doing. Nothing they went through is any different than thousands of other people who hit a rough patch in their life.

Basically, her message is, pop out 8 kids and then use them to get rich and famous.

She did not work any harder, did not pray any deeper, and did not persevere any longer than most people would've done if faced with the same situation she faced. In fact, most people would've handled it with far more grace and humbleness than she did.

So, I just chuckle that she truly believes her story is one of a kind and inspirational. It's not. It's about how she and Jon made piss poor decisions and choices and had to live with it for a bit, until she figured out her child pimping scheme.

I'll step in and say that I have seen quite a number of cases where mothers were charged, and even served jail time, for failing to protect. Different states, and different jurisdictions, have different laws, and this can depend a lot on individual DAs, too, but it definitely happens.

Could not have said it better, or more simply, myself. This is the root of it all, and boy did she ever blow it with her greedy need for fame and fortune. Her story is not inspirational at all, but you know, if someone would ghost write a book for her on how to game the system while cutting off all ties with family and friends, well, there's her only story. Hope Penn got there $$$s worth today.

anger issues kate said...

Hey, did you guys notice, Kate was not driving the Audi, in those pics. Actually Kate has not been driving the Audi , lately. I guess the jogging outfit, carrying the coupon bag, wearing sport shoes, and driving the BBB, makes it look in her mind that she looks like everyone else, like all moms do. They have on the shopping coupon uniform. Which makes her look silly. Kate's tryin to blend in. After all, would anyone believe her if she wore: hooker heels, leggins, that blue top, wearing a fancy baseball cap, earrings, her shoplifters bag, carrying her iphone and keys in her hand and getting out of an Audi sportcar, would you believe this woman, uses coupons? I don't think so. But kates jogging pants and hoodie is just what it should be for, not shopping. Kate is laughable.

I give Kate another 6 months until she realizes, like Jon has, that media doesn't want her. She'll be working at a mediocre job and the kids will end up having to sacrifice their private school because there is no way in hades that Kate will give up her house and the prestige she thinks it holds.

Permanent Name said...

I am thinking that even kart doesn't believe these insignificant 'jobs' will be her 'career'.... she may not be the smartest knife in the drawer, but she's not profoundly stupid. She has some idea of her standing.

I figure whoever her 'manager' is tells her to take any and everything for now, just to keep herself relevant (and I chuckle loudly at the word relevant).

kart and manager know this is a transition time - she is desperate to keep her name alive and will keep stumbling along until her dream job comes. The one in front of a camera.

Hope she is patient and has lots of money. Will be a long wait.

As for her taking a nursing job, she won't find any clinical positions in her area. Inside scuttlebut has it that she is known to be difficult to work with and has only a diploma.

While she *is* and RN with same license, there are hundreds of new grads and RECENTLY experienced nurses with more education vying for those spots.

Hospitals hire nurses for their experience, their ability to work well with others, and their education. Being a reality stah carries zero weight in the selection process. In fact with kart, it likely counts against her.

The competition is STIFF to get nursing jobs. Many more folks out there more qualified.

The technology changes rapidly and whatever skill she had 11 years ago are probably defunct. New machines, new processes, new meds... there is no benefit to hiring her when they can hire currently experienced nurses or grads fresh out of school who know the current nursing processes.

Someone mentioned in earlier thread she might consider going back to school to get her BSN while her kids are in school, but that will likely take 3-4 years. Getting into a BSN program is also very competitive, so there is that....

I figure since most of the civilized world dislikes her she ought to lay low for a while, stay out of the public eye then get a regular job quietly.

I really think she has no chance at her dream job.

The comments on the article did not favor kart....

And this goes along with my previous post - her career strategy plan for this transition time is 'sort of working' - she's mentioned in a national online news site..... it's likely she considers that a postive, regardless of article content.

Blogging is bottom of the barrel as far a writing pay goes UNLESS you are a professional known in a field or have a unique viewpoint that draws readership and can post entertaining, informative content DAILY. I can't imaging she is getting much in the way of money, they probably did for publicity for the site itself. If that's the case, it was a great marketing move. Other than that, she will probably have a ghostwriter who writes all her posts. Doubt if there would be any original content. And she can't plagiarize from that site for her own site, so it'll get interesting.

Anyone else think extreme couponers are just hoarders in disguise?

Marie said...

I don't know about anyone else here, but I am getting sick of hearing about Kate's personal life story as her only insperation.

I don't mean to come across as rude that having kids isn't a blessing, but if having to raise 8 kids, going through a divorce and overcoming whatever her issues and obslicales in life are all you talk about repeatedly it gets old.

Kate is no different from any other person out there. Some people have 8, heck even more kids, or less. But it should not be her sole goal in life to live off her poor-me look at what I can achieve through this one thing of being a mom.

She has beaten the ideals of how to overcome something difficult to death. It isn't heart-felt I don't believe it for a moment. Maybe once upon a time it might have been. But all it is now is to continue her recognition on whatever stage will have her.

She's Irresponsible said...

I think there are several reasons why people might be legitimately unsupportive of both "speaking engagements" like the PSU one, and of the coupon blogging gig.

The first is that this kind of "work" has nothing to do with the kind of full-time employment that could eventually support this family.

This is another form of employment Kate has wrangled only because she gave birth. She has no skills or talents that legitimately qualify her to be either a motivational speaker or a an expert on any kind of household organization.

The ONLY reason she has these "jobs' is because she gave birth, and then pimped out her children's childhoods. That's not admirable, and the longer she delays finding fulltime, "mediocre" work, the longer she is continuing to deny reality and the longer she depends on her children's fame for economic benefit. That's not good for her children.

Z-list "celebrity" connections like this coupon blog stuff don't last, and this one isn't going to feed those kids. If the only speaking date she can get is at a remote PSU campus near where the kids were born, that's not going to do it either. And she's still living off the kids, instead of taking responsibility for finding her own work.

On top of everything else, it is completely reasonable to complain when a "coupon" website hires, as a public representative, a fame whore who lives an extravagant lifestyle. Somebody didn't do their homework. If I were an investor in that website, I'd be plenty pissed to learn that ANY of my investment dollars were put to such poor use.

Never mind that she's totally polarizing, she's clearly not living economically or even sensibly. As a lot of people have noted, there are REAL moms out there, really USING coupons to feed their large families. Mrs. Organic-Whole-Foods-My-Audi-24-Acres-Overseas-Trips-Nobu isn't one of them.

The first is that this kind of "work" has nothing to do with the kind of full-time employment that could eventually support this family.

This is another form of employment Kate has wrangled only because she gave birth. She has no skills or talents that legitimately qualify her to be either a motivational speaker or a an expert on any kind of household organization.

The ONLY reason she has these "jobs' is because she gave birth, and then pimped out her children's childhoods. That's not admirable, and the longer she delays finding fulltime, "mediocre" work, the longer she is continuing to deny reality and the longer she depends on her children's fame for economic benefit. That's not good for her children.

Z-list "celebrity" connections like this coupon blog stuff don't last, and this one isn't going to feed those kids. If the only speaking date she can get is at a remote PSU campus near where the kids were born, that's not going to do it either. And she's still living off the kids, instead of taking responsibility for finding her own work.

On top of everything else, it is completely reasonable to complain when a "coupon" website hires, as a public representative, a fame whore who lives an extravagant lifestyle. Somebody didn't do their homework. If I were an investor in that website, I'd be plenty pissed to learn that ANY of my investment dollars were put to such poor use.

Never mind that she's totally polarizing, she's clearly not living economically or even sensibly. As a lot of people have noted, there are REAL moms out there, really USING coupons to feed their large families. Mrs. Organic-Whole-Foods-My-Audi-24-Acres-Overseas-Trips-Nobu isn't one of them.

If couponcabin.com is such a big website/entity, they must have more bloggers than just Kate. She can't be the only blogger that is hired by them. I don't think the job is as prestigious as it sounds. I also agree that it's a good job for her if she doesn't involve the children. Kate, let them enjoy what is left of their childhoods.

Coupon Cabin is located in a snazzy loft building in downtown Chicago with 50+ paid employees. Plus, they hire interns from all the schools in the area. I bet one of these interns will be writing the "blog" and Kate's name will be listed as the author.

Westcoaster said... I think people are making a big deal about this new "job" of K8's, way to much of a deal. So far she's scheduled to write one column for an online coupon blog, can't imagine she's getting paid much at all. We all know she can't string two words together by herself, and could not even be bothered to look pleasant for the pap she called to take her picture with their promo items. I have a friend who writes a blog, and has been asked to do a guest column once a month for a newish online travel site that focuses on life after 50 - and she is not getting paid at all to start. Kate and the coupon gig - doubt she can pay any bill with that one.

As for her gig Down Under, what a jpke she and Terri Irwin are with this one. First off, the Zoo is hardly in a financial position to offer her any $$$ to come, and if they are, hope this event gets audited. It is possible she had FF miles for the trip, and by using the kid's miles (another use of her ATM's), she probably can treat Mr. Steve to a first class seat. Can any of you see her actually sitting down to lunch with 9 fan/strangers, so yes, they are probably getting a meet and great in the lobby. And unless she has a real sheeple following, who is going to bid much for lunch with this woman, and gather up 8 friends two days post event, and on a week day to do this lunch? Very bizarre - I have been to more than a few of these charity auctions in my day, and all the ones that we have bid/purchased that involve a dinner, a concert, a sporting event, well, you have months to make arrangements. And if she has opened the kids' wallet so to speak to pay for this, yes, it is her tax deduction (you know how much she wants to help the koala). She will probably be there for no more than a week, and then come home to whine about how exhausted she is from the jet lag. And yes, here we are missing another 3 day school break with her kids - the ones she cannot even treat to a weekend at the beach in the summer. But a trip abroad for her . . .?

As for today's speaking engagement, do you think she knows that hair and makeup are probably not provided at Penn State? Looking forward to the report tho.

Totally agree. Merits repeating.

Radar has photos of today's bus pickup reportedly by Kate in the BBB.
One of the boys crawled completely under the van as the kids loaded from the bus after school.
I mean, he is under there and is shown crawling out with his head right behind the front tire.

Kate, once again, is being slammed for not taking proper precautions. She should have been out of the van and supervising the kids.
Wow, this on the heels of the pedophile working on their show's footage.

Out and About -- I'm not Admin and I'm not an attorney, but I can answer your question. A monther who stands by and does nothing while her husband/boyfriend or whomever, abuses her child, can be, and often is, charged with child endangerment. The same holds true for a father who stands by and does nothing in the same circumstances.

I'm a long-time couponer/refunder. I always go through the Sunday ads, organize my coupons accordingly, and make out a shopping list. It takes time and organization. Some friends and I swap coupons at least twice a month and give our unused coupons to a local women's group. They, in turn, collect unused, even expired, coupons and turn them over to military organizations. Many PXs will accept expired coupons. There are often products I can't or don't use that are free or nearly so with the use of coupons. Those I donate to the local shelter or food pantries. I routinely cut my bill by 1/3, or more. Kate, from what little I've seen on the show, isn't a real couponer. She may use coupons, but she doesn't know how to do it in the most economical manner. Bad choice for a coupon blogger.

It is really pathetic if you think about needing the body guard. She is tenacious, right? Makes insecure Kate feel important. Kind of sad, if you ask me, in light of recent circumstances. She still doesn't get it. Or chooses not to.

Whoa, I looked at twazzup and they were all atwitter at something on radar. She didn't get out of the car or even open the van door when the kids got off the school bus and one of the boys rolled under the van to play. Whoa. (Hate to think of what happened to him now that the pictures are out.)

Kate Gosselin Slammed By Child Safety Group After Her Son Is Seen Playing Under Her Van

Posted on Nov 03, 2011 @ 07:00PM

By Radar Staff

Kate Gosselin's son had a narrow escape from what would have been a fatal accident on Thursday when he crawled under her van as she sat behind the wheel.

In startling photos obtained by RadarOnline.com, the seven-year-old boy can been seen climbing beneath the family-size van, with his head ending up immediately behind the right front wheel.

"A minivan is a 3000-pound lethal weapon and having children crawling around it is not prudent," KidsAndCars.org president and founder Janette Fennell tells RadarOnline.com exclusively.

The frightening scenario occurred when the former reality star pulled up at a parking lot to meet the school bus and take her eight children home.

Rather than getting out of the huge van to supervise them, Kate stayed in the driver seat as the kids piled in with their big backpacks on their little backs.

But instead of following his siblings into the car, one child thinks it is more fun to scramble all the way under the vehicle and play on the ground where -- if the Kate Plus 8 star had rolled forward or back -- she would have crushed him!

Luckily, he finally gets into the car safely and settles in with the rest of his huge family, and while the incident had a happy ending it alarmed Fennell, a leading advocate for child safety around cars.

"She should have gotten out of the car to supervise them, especially when you have that many children," Fennell says "Kids tend to put themselves in harms way in an instant."

"You should never leave children unattended in or around motor vehicles. Even if they are all capable of getting themselves into the van and getting buckled up, children at that age are unpredictable."

Fennell went on to reveal that motor vehicle accidents are the number one killer of children. 50 children are backed over by vehicles every week, and at least two of them die. A further 1.5 children are killed every week by being driven over forwards very slowly in a parking lots.

"She is blessed she didn't run him over," she said.

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

I'm sure the sheeple are already defending their idol, momster Khate. They're probably going to blame the whole thing on a 7 yr old and absolve Khate of any responsibility. New day, same old shit.

Marie said...

I knew Kate was not entirely too put together from the start but I never imagined she would be so neglectful to put her own child in that amount of danger. Unbelievable. After seeing those pictures, I don't see how she could get out of this smelling like a rose to her sheeple. But I've been wrong before...

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

I looked at that photo. Where was she? Putting on lip gloss? Wouldn't you think that she should have learned a lesson with all the negative publicity after leaving her kids alone in the van? Scratch that. Kate will never learn. These kids should be taken away from her. Jon?

Jane said...

Are we sure Kate was driving the BBB today and not rent a nanny? If she was scheduled to speak at noon and it went maybe until 1 - 1:30, could she have gotten back in time to pick up the kids? I thought I read the college was about a 4 hr trip?

Tucker's Mom said...

Oh, wow, I forgot about Kate leaving the kids in the van to pick up Chinese food just last week or so.
Boy, this is not good.

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

I don't know what time the bus pick up is, but I just checked her Twitter and she sent several tweets about how great the talk went today, and how "energized" she was - all between 3:46 and 3:54 today.

Also, before anyone starts to jump to conclusions - how do we even know Khate was driving? I thought her talk today was several hours away from the house? The photos (so far) do not show Khate at all, just the kids outside the van. Could it have been the nanny picking them up?

Laurie said...

I'm the last to defend Kate, but are we sure that it was her in the BBB and not one of the not-a-nannies? Would she have been able to get back to pick up the kids from her speaking engagement? All I can say is WOW, one of the kids is in for a spanking tonight.

Laurie said...

Well, scratch my last post. I see that she just called it a stupid story and once again set the record straight. Why am I not surprised to hear that it was the "wrong day". She just said that it was Tuesday and that she gave him permission to crawl under to get one of the other kid's water bottle. WTF! By saying that he had your permission makes it worse. Don't you care that something like that is dangereous? Water bottles can be replaced, kids can't.

EVERYTHING ELSE is more important to this woman than her children. Where was she? Communing with her precious pink iPhone, no doubt. Whatever it was, it required her full attention while she sat in the driver's seat. Unlike her children.

Maybe this needs a post, Administrator? She has NO clue how to parent, and less interest.

gramof5 said...

Never would I ever thought I might be defending Kate but, I think the babysitter was driving the van and not Kate. Here's why...
First of all, how could she be back in time today after her play time at college ? Some said it was a 4 hour drive.
To me the other thing that I caught, was the smiles on their faces. You never see a smile on their faces when their mother is picking them up.
They were being silly like little kids do and got caught doing something they would have NEVER done if their mother was in that van. Besides she always gets out and marches them to their seats like Hitler.
The last time I saw them smile at the bus stop was when Jon picked them up.
Bet the babysitter is looking for a new job after this one.

kate needs to fade away said...

I am going to weigh in on kate and the couponing. I see both sides of the issue...on one hand she is not using her kids to do this gig, but yet on another hand she is. The ONLY reason she is on that site is because of her infamy exploiting her kids.

For me personally what bothers me about this particular farce she is engaged in is that she has NO foundation for giving ANYONE advise on saving money or making ends meet.

This is the same woman who has for years lived lavishly off the working backs of her eight kids and STILL is spending their money like drunken sailor.

I have no problem with her earning a legitimate living, but giving others advice on how to save is NOT a legitimate job.

A nursing job (as horrifying as that thought is), waitress, secretary or any other profession or position that involves her actually working would probably put a stop to all or most of her detractors calling her out on this.

I know for myself, I will find another coupon site to learn the coupon game, because they obviously are not to concerned about giving out accurate advise if the best they can do is Kate.

Marie said...

Too late everybody. Apparently Kate is claiming she gave her son permission to climb under her van to retrive something.

I still am calling it dangerous. Here's a bright idea put the kids in the car, pull forward, have KATE get out of the van and retrived the water bottle. I have never in all my life heard anybody call it an H2O bottle!

That's her excuse for why her kid was under the car? Really? I don't care if she gave him permission or not it is still stupid.

fidosmommy said...

Re: Couponing. I don't use them, but have watched the Extreme Couponing show out of pure
curiosity. These (mostly) women don't have full time jobs outside the home. Their job is to SAVE the family money on groceries in order to pay bills more easily or to save up for some big upcoming event. You have to have cash inflow in order to save cash.

Saving money is a great thing. It seems to me that couponing that is serious enough to warrant a blog would be an auxiliary job (saving money) to a paying
job (creating money.) Kate needs both.

RE: 7 year old child playing under the BBB. Ouch!
I don't even know what to say. Kids do the darndest things, and parents have to be on top of stuff like this. I can almost hear Kate's response if Jon had been the parent on site in this picture.

RE: Penn State Lecture. The tweeter (above) asked if there were any empty seats. The answer was "not many". So, the event must have been pretty well attended. How interesting. I would not have foreseen that.

tweeter 1 --Were there lots of empty seats? Was Steve, Kate's bodyguard, there?.
tweeter 2 -- not many.. & yes!

Paula said...

Kate, giving a child "permission" to crawl under a bus is WORSE than if the child had done it on his own!! Get off you lazy butt and be a MOTHER! YOU get out of the van and retrieve the item! YOU do NOT have a 7-year old to crawl under the van. What would have happened if Kate had accidentally hit a fear and the car went into reverse? Sheesh...what an idiot.

TotallyDisgusted said...

When I looked at the photo on ROL it looks more like a piece of paper rather than a water bottle. Either way this woman is stupid. Move the car, don't send your kid underneath to get whatever it was.

Look at all three pictures on ROL. He's not getting a water bottle, he's getting a piece of paper. She didn't even know what was going on.

And you should NOT give a kid permission to climb under a vehicle for any reason!!!

I don't see how the "tab story" could be crap--you can SEE him climbing under the van to get a paper and one of his sisters is laughing. And Kate says she okayed this. Wow.

Kate'sUnsafe said...

Besides her possibly running Collin over, he could have been very badly burnt on the car's tailpipe since her engine must have been warm from just driving to the bus stop. I'm assuming she didn't have the car running while he was under there, but I'm probably assuming too much given her.

Audible Click said...

Kate claimed it was a water bottle (she said H2O) but I can clearly see a piece of paper in one of the Radar Online pictures. The sheeple were claiming that it was the babysitter who drove the van that day but Kate said she gave Colin permission. The dimwit can't even lie correctly.

All good points and if it wasn't Kate the sitter should be fired but. I highly doubt that will happen.

fidosmommy said...

RE: under the bus, another thought.

Does anyone actually believe Kate Gosselin would
rather rescue a disposable plastic water bottle than keep her son's school uniform clean and neat? Under any car there are greasy things. This is the same little boy who had to give up his "lovey" because it had gum on it. Now she's asking him to roll under a vehicle in his best light colored clothes to get a disposable water bottle?

In one of the Radar pictures, you can see Collin's left arm is extended toward a puddle, even almost have his fingers in it, but there is no water bottle visible. His position does not suggest he had put the bottle into his right hand. If he had, we would probably see the bottle as he emerged from under the van - right arm visible there.

There was plenty of room for Kate to slide in under the bus, by the way.

I say the water bottle story doesn't fly.

cathy518 said...

As far as Kate's job or jobs supporting her children, I have a couple of problems with accepting that supporting the children is what Kate's job is about. First of all, the children have surely made enough money since birth to support themselves for the rest of their childhood if their mother didn't squander their earnings on her hair,car,makeup,plastic suregery,etc. Secondly, it seems crazy that Kate would continue to maintain her current lifestyle without downsizing. How much can she really make being the Coupon Queen? My guess is this is not the profiable and glamerous job she had hoped for.

Always Skeptical said...

Not sure about this one.

One tweeter (hater) is saying the water bottle is in the backpack so Collin wasn't going after a water bottle. However that backpack is blue and I believe it's Collin's backpack. It looks like Hannah has one with red on it from the picture of the kids coming off the bus.

Another tweeter (hater) is sure Collin went to get a piece of paper. I see no paper in any of the pics.

It's also being said the motor is running. How does anyone know?

I agree that Kate should have gotten kids in car and either retrieved item herself or backed up or driven forward then got out and got the item. Heaven forbid another car rammed hers when a child was under the car. That is my complaint.

How about this- with or without your permission, allowing a child to fetch an object under a car is risky. Freak accidents can & have happened. YOU should have been the one reaching under the car, not your child.

there's the link to the picture showing the paper he's grabbing. Look over on the left hand side of the picture. You can see his hand and a piece of paper on the ground. He's WAY under the bus.

1. She should have never given him permission to do this in the first place. This is DANGEROUS.

2. She apparently doesn't even know what he was getting. Which underlines the fact that she's really not paying attention.
