'Real Housewives' airs marriage counseling of reality star who committed suicide in August

Despite the pleas of Russell Armstrong's family, Bravo has been including him extensively in the past few episodes of 'Beverly Hills'


Footage that Bravo wouldn't keep confidential, even despite the requests of the Armstrongs, includes 5-year-old Kennedy Armstrong's last birthday party with her father, and Russell and Taylor's attempts to save their marriage in therapy.





Ronald Richards, the family's attorney, said last August that “everyone on Russell’s side wants Bravo to edit him out and any characters affiliated with him this season.  It would be bad taste for all three of Russell’s children to air scenes of their father who is dead."
Austin Kelsoe, Russell's nephew, also said, "I think, in my opinion, Russell should be edited out, in respect to Taylor and the family. In my personal opinion, Bravo should take the high road and do what they think is the right thing to do."

As for Bravo's response, in September they implied that insider reports that the counseling sessions would not be cut out were wrong. A rep told Radaronline“The producers and Bravo are in the process of re-editing the entire series.  As a result, any report regarding the content of upcoming episodes is mere speculation.”

Bad form, Bravo. Bad form.

Yes, he was an adult and yes, he knew (or should have realized) what he was signing up for. But this is still in such poor taste, again from a network that used to promote culture and the arts.

But yet again, there are people who watch this and that sends a powerful message to the tv execs and advertisers. We are not using the brains God gave a goose, let alone us. Think, people. Just take a step back, breathe and really think before you decide what to watch.

Fortunately, the reality fad seems to be drying up. At least, hope springs eternal.

I totally agree about the consenting adult thing. This wouldn't be a blip on the radar if he were still alive. I think you should be able to withdraw consent. And if you die, I think your next of kin should be able to withdraw consent on your behalf.

His family said it loud and clear, DO NOT SHOW HIM. FOR HIS KIDS' SAKES. Bravo spit in their faces.

This is an interesting article:

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe says his parents initially turned down the wizard movie role. The 22-year-old actor, who played the schoolboy wizard in all eight Harry Potter movies in the series along with co-star Emma Watson, says they feared the film would hamper his life, The Sun reported.

"They feared it would disrupt my life when I was 11 year-old as I would have to spend too long away in Hollywood," he said.

Radcliffe also revealed the original plan was to shoot six Potter films in the US.

"They went to my parents, and, at the time, the deal was to sign on for, I think, six films, all to be done in LA, and my mum and dad simply said, 'That's too much disruption to his life. That's not gonna happen.'

"I didn't know any of that had gone on. And then, maybe three, four months down the line, the deal had changed, and it was going be to shoot two films, and they'd both be done in England, and so they said, 'Okay, we'll let him audition.' And then it all went from there, really," he added.

Puddymoors said...

My brother committed suicide 4 years ago. It is a devastating decision that continues to affect the lives of everyone who knew him. In cleaning up after him I edited his life for my parents, photos were disposed of before they could see them, a girl he'd been seeing (not seriously) didn't get to meet them, because what she wanted to tell them was horrible and not something they needed to hear. In all my decisions I made sure that despite any indiscretions my brother might have made, my parents believed the best of him, because they needed to and because doing so hurts no one.

The idea that Bravo are going to edit this story into a one-sided sob fest benefitting one party makes me sick to my stomach for the family of this man. This case is not black and white, and the fact that Taylor is able to air her side without any way for her husband to respond is wrong. The video footage from Kennedy's birthday party should be given to her as a keepsake for her for ever, in its entirety.

I won't be watching this show or any featuring Mr Armstrong.

cwgirlup75 said...

GM. I'll b talking to my friends, Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Access Hollywood sometime between 11am-noon 2day. Have a great day all..
============================================

Totally off-topic, but WTF?? How does this bitch keep getting media attention? She's like the freaking Terminator - she just won't die! *sigh*

Annie2 said...

I wonder if the family had any legal recourse to stop Bravo from showing this. I have never watched any of the Real Housewives shows. This just makes me less likely to ever watch them.

Dwindle said...

Clearly these cable networks will harm anyone in any way they can in order to pocket an extra buck ninety five.

So unless folks have enough time to organize Occupy Bravo and Occupy TLC, we the public need to hold each other accountable for what we are viewing. Bravo cant pocket the profit if we dont watch.

This is deeper than "Dont Watch" - the real question is: why do people feel the psychological need to peer at total strangers being harmed or doing harm? Why? I know so many say "Oh it's my guilty pleasure." WHY does gawking at mental illness give you pleasure? Why does spending your hard earned money on these rich-bitches give you pleasure? (I dont mean YOU, I mean a generic WE THE VIEWING PUBLIC.)

I think each and every one of us needs to look at what we deliberatly choose to put on our own TVs and ask ourselves why watching this sick and twisted dysfunction in REAL lives among REAL people gives us pleasure. And then the next step is get ahold of ourselves, get counseling if we have to, and stop participating in this onging disgusting harmful gawking at disturbed people.

The networks are laughing at us as they sit around and plan out ways to crank up the pressure on folks that are already unbalanced.

JudyK said...

I think "Taylor" (not her real name) gave Bravo permission to show Russell. She was already writing a book immediately after his "suicide." Cannot stand her and agree with his family that it was no suicide. And I hear Bravo has not renewed their contract with her. I don't believe a word out of her mouth.

Maggie said...

A poster on GWOP said she and her husband saw Kate on tv during a Target commercial. The post was Nov. 22. Has anyone seen or heard about this?

chefsummer said...

Sad it just goes to show that bravo has no respect for the. Armstrong family they could surly have re-shot the season without him in it. Just Tayolar I also bet that she will be talking.

About the supposed abuse she suffered from him and. Bravo will go with it all the way and milk it. All the way

pamelajo said...

Real quick rule I have followed...If HOUSEWIVES is anywhere in the title, you are wasting your own good and happy life watching.

anger issues kate said...

Maggie: Targets commercial has a woman who looks a little bit like Kate. She has blonde hair and wears hooker heels and searches the Target add for bargains and prep for black friday. It is easy to think it was Kate, since that character acts like Kate.As for Kate getting media attention, being on Access: it's probably for 2 things: Marathon and face-lift story.
If that was Kates second blog at CC: Kate had better change her tune: cause nobody wants to hear family stories: staring Kate, on a blog, that is surpose to be about saving money and using coupons. Kate will get bored of CC.

Kate's Cart said...

Can you really blame Bravo if people are dumb enough to watch the "Housewives" of anything? They are just a money hungry corporate machine. I do hope his family follows through with lawsuits.

TLC stinks said...

I bet this is a remote interview like before. Doubt she was flown anywhere.

TLC stinks said...

PS. I think the CC photos were photoshopped too. Her picture looked softer that crisp.

She can lie about any plastic surgery because she hasn't been asked...have you had any cosmetic treatments or surgery.

I think the comment upthread about someone on GWOP seeing Kate on a Target commercial was just a snark comment by GWOP blogger regarding Kate being just like the Target crazy lady shopper in their Xmas TV ads. Or it could just have been a troll trying to start up a rumor on GWOP. If Kate signed a deal with Target, believe me, she'd be out there trumpeting that.

Allison J. said...

Dwindle -- I just totally agree with everything you said. Reality TV is such a rotten endeavour now. I surely learned after watching a few years of freak show Kate Gosselin that I will never watch 'reality' TV again. What an enormous waste of precious time.

Maggie said...

Question for Post 12 - Anger Issues: Is the Target commercial purposely looking like Kate or do you think it is just coincidence? What does the woman say in the commercial, if you remember? Thanks!

Just Me said...

New post. There is a picture of one of the kids lunchbox with this meal in it.




What’s In My Kids’ Lunchboxes?

Here’s what’s in my kids’ lunchboxes!

Hummus and pita chips, grapes, squeezy yogurt, almonds, juice, and our new favorite – a smiley cookie!
This was their favorite lunch in awhile – all items requested and approved by them! :)

What lunch box ideas do you have for us? Email me at kate@kateplusmy8.com

"my friends Billy Bush and Kit Hoover." Oh thanks for my morning laugh. I think they have a phone date.

As for Bravo - bad form, bad taste, just bad. I don't watch that trainwreck, but I hope Bravo gets some bad karma in return for this one.

cathy518 said...

Of course Kate will be "setting the record straight" about her face lift in her interviews today. I don't care what she has done except that she cries poor while squandering the children's money on cosmetic procedures. She doesn't look good to me though. Her face looks flat and wide and she does not look the same to me, this is just desperate on her part to spruce up for the cameras.

PJ's momma said...

I apologize because I know this is off topic, but Kate is asking for suggestions for lunchboxes. Know what I would suggest? Some REAL food and SUFFICIENT quantities! That little tub of hummus is tiny, as is everything else in there. It's all snack food - why not a substantial PBJ with a cheese stick, a banana and a cookie or something? Don't they have a very long day between breakfast and their arrival home? They must be starving.

Rant over.

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

These kids have earned millions of dollars. Let them have some of it and purchase their meals at school with the rest of the kids instead of their mother spending it on hair, tanning, shoes, clothing, and whatever. That way she won't have to worry what is in their lunchboxes, the kids can eat as much as they want so that they aren't starving, and they still can buy healthy lunches.
Problem solved.

Tucker's Mom said...

Here's a suggestion, Kate: Give the kids a damn sandwich. Lower yourself to be like other moms and make 'em a ham and cheese or even GASP!!!!!!! roast beef or DOUBLE GASP!!!! some liverwurst and cheddar.
Ugh. Those kids must look longingly at other kids' lunches.

Westcoaster said...

Re: snacky lunches. Not a lot of substance there, and it takes some time to open all those pre-wrapped plastic bags and tubs. Yes, a better (and simpler) idea would be a sandwich, a banana, yogurt stick and a cookie, plus a non-sugary drink. Is this what the 11 year olds get too? My grandson is a grazer, but this type of lunch, as a daily menu, and we have seen it before, is nothing to brag about.

Pity Party said...

Those poor kids - another snack for their 10-hour day. What is wrong with that woman? And to think she made this one up all special for the photo op. If this is their favorite in a while what the heck have they been getting. It would be a good lunch with a sandwich. As long as it looks and sounds all trendy and healthy, she don't give a flying duck.

Pity Party said...

My favorite of those commercials that does remind me of KT with her crazy gotta outdo everybody is the treadmill - incline, 10, uphill, backwards - or along those lines. That lady pulls it unlike KT, who would sour it up.

Tucker's Mom said...

Kate is not the Target lady. Kate can not deliver a line, let alone act. Target lady is pretty darn funny.

Bless your heart. When it comes your turn to stand before the pearly gates, you will get right in. You have done a good thing. Or perhaps, your good deed enabled your brother to spend less penance time before going where he was going.

I recently struggled with this with an uncle. He had caused a lot of pain to others, and himself, throughout his life. And yet, the right thing to do as he was old, ill, & suffering, was to care for him. My mother didn't need to know anything other than that I was caring for him. She didn't need to know all the ugly stuff.

Why do that to her? She just needed to know that someone was caring for her little brother, because she was too old & ill herself to do it. The ugly stuff would have broken her heart. No need for her to suffer any more with this. My top priority was to protect the wounded little bird that my mother had become.

I think Bravo is totally wrong for airing that stuff, and I refuse to have anything to do with it. Why harm his children like that? Just so they can make money??? Pathetic.

Oh Lordy Bee. The woman is so delusional to think these two bozos are friends.

No Kate. They are people who are USING you and laughing behind your back at you.

I don't think she really cares, though, as long as they get her on tv. She is ate up with herself I tell ya.

And Billy Bush is just a creepy little weasel. Ick.

Ha! Someone with photoshop skills should put Kate's face on the Target lady's body.

Pam said...

About Kate's new face...

She used to have a VERY prominent number 11 between her eyes. It's totally gone now.

How does she explain that? Running made it go away? The good bra made it disappear?

When She Played Her Charade said...

The crazy Target lady -- the one with the Christmas cards? It looks nothing like Kate. She has a pointed nose and the hair is all wrong. How could someone mistake this woman for Kate? Or am I looking at the wrong video?

Hanging head in shame said...

I'll admit I do watch the real housewives, and I hang my head in shame. to begin with I dont have much respect for any of these people since they all signed their life away when they allowed Bravo to film them. No one forced them to film, no one forced them to bring cameras into their marriage counseling session. The suicide was tragic, and yes Bravo could have handled it better but in the end it was russell and taylor who did this to themselves.

Now, specificaly about Russell, after his suicide there was a lot of talk about all his financial problems, that he abused taylor, etc. The latest episodes where he has been featured more have made me have some sympathy for him, they are painting him as a raelly mellow, easygoing guy and Taylor is coming out looking like a crazed lunatic. I know its all heavily edited but from the footage they've shown recently I would say Taylor was at fault for many of his problems, and I think she greatly exagerated the abuse allegations.

Jane said...

She may not have had a facelift but she's had work done - looks like botox and a filler (Juvederm, Restylane). I wasn't able to watch the entire video. She's repulsive

Boston Bonnie said...

Some kids are snackers and enjoy what Kate included in their lunchboxes but what disturbs me is that
1. the quantity is hardly enough to keep them fueled for the day
2. why does she insist that each kid is like the other. They ALL like, the ALL thank me.

Seriously Kate, you are always so happy to trumpet the fact that you have 8, count em 8 kids - treat them that way!

I loathe this "woman" and "her" entire brand! said...

@Jane #34- I'm bored today so I looked at the interview. First of all- I guess "she" had to go to their NY studio so they didn't have to spend any money going to "her". "Her" whole sarcastic attitude is such a turn off- "Do I look like I need a facelift?"- after she gave a huge sigh and rolled "her" eyes. Khate knows nothing about interviewing- NOTHING! "She" thinks "she's" trying to be cute but "she" has no sense of humor about herself and "her" face is always so stiff. Seems like AH is the only show that fawns all over "her" and yet on their FB page- all the viewer comments are NEGATIVE! AH is trying way too hard. Guess what- the viewers are NOT buying it! I could go on but my fingers would hurt!

Westcoaster said...

But that's so Kate, she will focus on the one word (in this case 'facelift'), thinking that by sputtering and being outraged, the concept of 'work done', which she so clearly has spent her kids' $$$$ on, will be camouflaged. Except everyone knows she's a world class liar.

Tucker's Mom said...

Billy Bush is such a hard hitting journalist. Not.
How about asking if Kate had *anything* done to her face.
She gets to be more of a media whore by the day.
"Why am I still in the media?" "Honesty, I have no idea".
OK, folks. let discuss. Kate appears on a show and the damn show has her on.
How is this hard to figure out?
Both entities could decline, but, they don't.
Kate's in the media because she wants to be. And, she could not have looked happier to be there.

Ha, I also thought she looked a bit like Kate, and even though that ad is as obnoxious as Hell (especially after you've seen it more than once), Kate couldn't pull that off if her life depended on it...she has ZERO personality, as opposed to the over-exuberance of this actress. All the acting lessons in the world could not prepare Kate for that role. I hate her...have I mentioned that lately.

Newsflash, Kate! Your face doesn't look like a normal 36 year old's face. You look, at the very least, to be in your mid 50s. Just your neck alone looks like you are in your 80s. All of the dieting, tanning and cigarette smoking have aged you tremendously. Trust me, you NEED a facelift.

Anyhoo, you can obviously see the botox in her forehead.

There are two separate videos on Access Hollywood of the stupid witch. The one that made me want to light my PC on fire, was the one talking about Jon.
What a piece of work that idiot is ! It seems to get worse with all these media idiots stroking her huge ego !
She and Steve were just on a stopover on their way to a little hideaway love suite in Vegas. Leaving a little early aren't you Kate ? Didn't you just get home from another trip with sissy-pants ?
You must be so damn thankful to get away from your little money makers for an extra four days, after all the hard work of Thanksgiving.

Marie said...

Does Kate seriously not know how to pack a lunchbox? I mean...maybe it's just me but I never grew up eating humus and crackers for a lunch.

Grapes, almonds, more juice. It all sounds absolutely ridiculous to me.

In all the "episodes," you see Kate make sandwiches of pbj, her "don't you have grape jelly in this country?" and all. Fluffernut sandwiches at bday party. I mean it's not that hard to make a lot of sandwiches quickly in the morning now is it? She's just being lazy.

No way do I buy that everything she packs for all 6 or 8 is always everybody's favorite.

But I bet my last dollar that those kids eat that cookie first!

Me, I was weird and saved my granola bar for the half mile home I had to walk uphill as a kid. Too bad her kids don't have a snack for the ride home. But didn't she just say she packs extra in their lunch box for breakfast on the ride home?

This whole thing is really weird.

cwgirlup75 said...

Gramof5 -

I am right there with you on the video about Jon. And the bitch had the nerve to say that she would never film with Jon again because of her "values and morals". (Or something like that - I was so mad at that point that I wasn't really paying attention.) Values and morals, Kate? Really? I wonder what particular "morals" allow her to feel good about leaving her kids to shack up with her married boyfriend at every opportunity. I'm guessing her "values" don't extend to respecting Gina or her sons.

PatK said...

How obvious Kate is. Hanging around Twitter this afternoon to soak up all the kudos from her sheep about her little interview. ME! ME! ME!

PJ's momma said...

Ask and ye shall receive. Boo hoo, I can't find the lights I want, and BAM, 2400 of them appear, probably followed by more to come! This woman does nothing for anyone, I laugh at how people come through for her, even though she would not do a thing for them. Oh well.

fidosmommy said...

Ahem, Kate, excuse me, but "morals and values" include not speaking of the father of your children negatively. Got it?

JudyK said...

Kate is SERIOUSLY mentally ill...she's in another twitter frenzy. Think I'm through commenting about her for awhile...she's not deserving of comments, even negative ones. She's beyond pathetic.

Melissa said...

Not to disagree but I don't really see a problem with the lunch (minus the fruit juice, WAY too much sugar in juice in my opinion). Many of my son's lunches don't have sandwiches either and he LOVES hummus and pita chips and almonds are actually quite filling. Again, I'm not saying this is the best lunch I've ever seen but I'm not sure this is the type of thing I'm going to jump all over Kate for.

Pity Party said...

I took the bait and watched the video. She looks so strange. Maybe it was the light but I saw what looked like two shiny pones on her forehead and her eyes have migrated to the side of her head. Her skin does look good though I mean really. She definitely had a face peel.

She is such a liar. She doesn't think it would be good for the kids to watch her and Jon on film together? WTH, they watch those old episodes all the time.

"I'm a runner", so show me.

Oh and they were being nice yet with condescending undertones.

IDModo said...

Just FYI - Did you know that Target is expanding into Canada? They are buying Zeller's, a Canadian company, firing all its unionized employees and hiring new, non-unionized ones. Over 600 people will be losing their jobs as a result.They may be hired back at minimum wage.This is to compete with Walmart, which has resisted unionization to the point that it permanently closed a store in Quebec, whose employees tried to exercise their constitutional right to bargain collectively.
This is probably of little or no interest outside Canada, but I know that there are many Americans who would agree with me that this is unfair. Please think about this while watching Kate shop at Target.

Westcoaster said...

So your forehead doesn't move, the lines between your eyes have disappeared and your eyes slant upwards just a bit more than usual - nope, no work done that anyone can see, nope. Tho I do believe that she now admits to breast implants in 2009. Here's one for you Billy Bush - ask Jon if he would ever appear in a frame of film with his ex, ever. Because the wheels on the bus turn more than one way.

Dallas Lady said...

Are the kids ever going to be allowed to eat an actual meal for lunch?

As for morals and values, she means the greatest of her values: grifting for free stuff. She went to New York (very quiet about that on twitter, even she must realize how bad it looks to leave her kids as often as she does!), got her hair done and her hairdresser got her the white lights because she begged.

Does she have no pride?

And so now she'll be gone another WEEK for a one day race. I think she would actually chew her foot off to get away from those kids. Is her married boyfriend with her? I guess he is since she can't figure out airports. Or other people. Or life.

As for wondering why she's still getting interviews, I'm not worried about it. Most people don't even remember her/didn't know who she was in the first place, and despite all her wishes to stay in the public eye, she's slowly falling away. Remember when she was actually IN an Oscar number? Granted, it was to make fun of her. Remember when she actually had a TV show with decent ratings? All of it gone. She reduced to radio interviews, hotel lobby interviews, Billy Bush and Coupon Cabin (LOL) and it's November.

Any predictions for what she'll be doing come February? /snark

The twit's tweets said...

Do you think she believes that no one knows that she lies constantly or does she forget the truths or does she just not care?

Kateplusmy8
@JasonJGreene LOL. It's how my running started-pushing 6 seater w 6 kids weighing 150 lbs PLUS stroller wt& now,on to marathon! This ur 1st?


She's said she started running around the time of divorce and we know she didn't run with the kids in strollers. She's not fooling us - is she trying to rewrite history? She can't mean that pushing a stoller is the same as running.

nicoleisfire
@Kateplusmy8 do you ever get weirded out by certain works of art or videos ppl make of you or your kids? Just curious.

Kate Gosselin
@nicoleisfire I don't watch them


Now this I believe. I don't think she even opens the many packages that are sent to her, let alone watches videos or listens to the music, but .....
Ouch! I guess she forgot that she's told her young tweeties that she watches their videos and that she loves them.

I can only shake my head and wonder if she'll ever realize how no one respects her or believes her and how she's really and truly despised and why. She can say she knows people hate her, but I don't believe it - she really doesn't have a clue.

Kate's Cart said...

It very funny Kate being interview by Billy Bush and Kit today. They laughed their assess off about her yesterday. And why wouldn't she pull her hair back - afraid of showing scares. We've seen her boob enhancement scares many times.

Maggie said...

Great article:
By Jen Chaney- The Washington Post

Kate Gosselin: setting new standards in coupon blogging. (Andy Kropa - GETTY IMAGES) Earlier this month, in a watershed moment for coupon blogging, Kate Gosselin was named coupon blogger at CouponCabin.com.

“We look forward to sharing the unique insight she has gained over the years,” the president of CouponCabin said in the press release that touted the announcement, a comment that suggested that, as a mother of eight, Gosselin would impart important lessons about finding deals and saving money.

Well, we’re now 10 days and four posts into Gosselin’s new gig. And here’s what we’ve learned about shopping and family budgeting from Kate Gosselin.

1. Kate Gosselin did not have a face-lift.

In an item posted yesterday, Gosselin confirmed that she has had no work done on her face. “With all of the buzz about me having had a facelift, I will confirm that I have not had one (I am only 36!!!),” she wrote.

I am grateful for this blog post because the buzz about the former “Kate Plus 8” star’s possible face-lift was so deafening that I could barely have conversations with people. “So what happened at work today? I said — WHAT HAPPENED AT WORK TODAY? I’M SORRY FOR YELLING BUT IT’S OBVIOUSLY HARD FOR YOU TO HEAR ME OVER THE INCREDIBLE BUZZ ABOUT KATE GOSSELIN’S POSSIBLE FACE-LIFT.” Yes, that’s exactly how nightly dinner discussions with my husband had been going until now. Thanks to Gosselin, peace has been restored to our home.

2. Cyber Monday is much, much better than Black Friday.

Gosselin made this point in a blog post about Black Friday as well as one on Cyber Monday. This observation was in no way influenced by the fact that Gosselin is working for a Web-based enterprise that specializes in online shopping discounts.

3. In 2004, it was possible to get a really good deal on stockings at Pottery Barn.

This was a key point in that Cyber Monday post; the former “Dancing With the Stars” contestant recalled how, shortly after the birth of her sextuplets, she opted to shop online rather than drag all six babies and her two older children to the mall. As a result, “on that Monday following the Thanksgiving weekend, I was able to find a great deal on Pottery Barn monogrammed stockings for each of’’ the kids, she wrote.

Hey, that’s useful information. All you need to do is purchase a time machine (I understand Amazon.com is offering a sweet deal on those right now), set it for 2004, then immediately get online and buy those monogrammed stockings. Assuming, of course, that Gosselin’s purchase didn’t deplete the entire stock.

4. There actually are some useful coupon codes in Gosselin’s post.

Links to discounts at stores ranging from Kohl’s to Bath & Bodyworks can be found in Gosselin’s blog. However, I am guessing those links are coming from a CouponCabin staffer who (again, guessing) probably dumps embed code into the posts Gosselin writes.

Is that useful for those trying to save money this holiday season? Absolutely. Are those discounts evidence of unique insight that only Gosselin can provide?

Uh, no. But the holiday season is still young, my friends. And Gosselin still has time to wow us with gift ideas and cash-saving suggestions that only she — a woman who, again, just to be crystal clear here, has never had a face-lift — can provide.

@Kateplusmy8 do you ever get weirded out by certain works of art or videos ppl make of you or your kids? Just curious.

******

I think this person is asking about the parodies
that are on YouTube about Kate. Remember the Kathy Griffin one (which Kate did see and said she laughed at), and the ones that had Kate and Jodi in cartoons - I think one was in court?

I don't think this question is about videos that fans have sent her. Although, I do believe your response is correct to both takes on this.

Newsflash, Kate! Your face doesn't look like a normal 36 year old's face. You look, at the very least, to be in your mid 50s. Just your neck alone looks like you are in your 80s. All of the dieting, tanning and cigarette smoking have aged you tremendously. Trust me, you NEED a facelift.

Anyhoo, you can obviously see the botox in her forehead.

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

I agree.

Kate does not look like a normal 36 year old woman. She definitely looks much older, prune-ish, haggard, weathered, and harsher than most 36 year olds.

I'm sure Kate's insistent sunning has helped to age her far beyond her years.

Oh well.
Whatever suits her buggy.

She has to live with that mug, and stinky attitude. Better her than me.

It very funny Kate being interview by Billy Bush and Kit today. They laughed their assess off about her yesterday.

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

What were they laughing about yesterday? I don't watch that show, but now you have me wondering. I did watch the videos and didn't think they were that nice. They basically ask why in the heck people are interested since she's off TV. HA!

Thank you!

And why wouldn't she pull her hair back - afraid of showing scares. We've seen her boob enhancement scares many times.

November 29, 2011 3:01 PM


She scares me A LOT when I see that face and those scars.

Tho I do believe that she now admits to breast implants in 2009.

November 29, 2011 2:25 PM

Since when? Just last night on Entertainment Tonight, they said she admits to only having had a tummy tuck.

Sounds like Kate is in NYC getting her straw died before her big marathon.


November 29, 2011 2:08 PM



It sure looks like it died. A horrible, brutal death by chemical assault.

Gramof5 -

I am right there with you on the video about Jon. And the bitch had the nerve to say that she would never film with Jon again because of her "values and morals". (Or something like that - I was so mad at that point that I wasn't really paying attention.) Values and morals, Kate? Really? I wonder what particular "morals" allow her to feel good about leaving her kids to shack up with her married boyfriend at every opportunity. I'm guessing her "values" don't extend to respecting Gina or her sons.
November 29, 2011 12:12 PM

Oooooo girl, I was going to say the SAME thing What morals and values? The same ones she has when she's shacked up/cozied up with the MARRIED man ? The ones she has when she trash talks Jon and her brother? The ones she demonstrated so well when she was in a bar in NYC with a strange man licking her foot?

I saw a comment on her blog a while back, something to the tune of she'd rather be hated for who she is than liked for who she isn't. I say she is definitely both. Liked by her fans for who she isn't, and hated by most for who she is. Her perception of herself is completely skewed and bass akwards.

Gift of grab said...

Okay, I know I've been out of the loop for a few days, but does anyone know when/if Kate "copped" to the boob job?

Here's a headline from today's NY Daily News:
Kate Gosselin denies facelift rumors despite sudden youthful appearance, credits 'great skin care' products

The mother of eight does cop to a tummy tuck, breast implants and thrice-weekly tanning sessions

This is not the only place I have seen it said in the last couple of days that she now acknowledges a boob job in 2009. Did she actually say this? Or is this just being planted by her PR people so that no one comes right out and asks her anymore?

As for her "interview" on AH today: Blech. She is so utterly lacking in TV demeanor, it isn't funny. Even though you couldn't see the leg pumping, the motion was detectable. She is so nonfluent for a medium in which she claims to be so comfortable. Inarticulate doesn't begin to describe it.

Bet she is leaving for LV tomorrow. So much for getting those lights on the tree. Kids will have to wait another WEEK.

I can't wait until we see the back of her, I really can't.

TotallyDisgusted said...

She told Access Hollywood:

“You could offer me every last dollar on the planet. I don’t work for money,” Kate says. “Jon lives his own life now and I have a lot of peace in my life for me and the kids so I’d have to say no, I cannot compromise my morals and standards to get paid a ridiculous amount of money. I don’t feel like it’s healthy or beneficial for my kids to watch so there’s no point.”

This is just sickening. Morals and standards, she has none. She says there is peace now. There's no peace for her kids living with her. She would jump on it if she was offered enough dollars to film with Jon. Who is she kidding. Too bad Jon would probably say no. I'm sure he doesn't want anything to do with her. She doesn't have a clue what is beneficial or healthy for her kids. This woman is a pathological liar.

If this link does not work: on Youtube it is called: Crazy target lady: and yes she does look like kate:

I too almost thought it was the first time I saw the commercial. If it was Kate it would have been all over the net. I don't think Target wants to lose customers.

Ha, I also thought she looked a bit like Kate, and even though that ad is as obnoxious as Hell (especially after you've seen it more than once), Kate couldn't pull that off if her life depended on it...she has ZERO personality, as opposed to the over-exuberance of this actress. All the acting lessons in the world could not prepare Kate for that role. I hate her...have I mentioned that lately.
November 29, 2011 10:55 AM

Kate could never pull off doing a commercial like that, but I'd bet a million buck she acts like that when she is all alone in her big mansion. I bet she talks to herself in the mirrors, obsessively exercises like Rocky Balboa, and screeches at the top of her lungs with excitement when she scores a 30 second Access Hollywood interview so she can trash Jon. Kate could never "act" like that, but Kate IS that ( does that make sense? ). She's probably a very scary person if you were a fly on her wall when she thinks no one is watching. I betcha she poses in her bathroom mirror like she's on a red carpet.

Barb In Nebraska said...

I just watched the videos with Billy Bush. Boy, did she look mad when he brought up Jon! It looked like a dark cloud went over her face.

This is part of what is wrong with this world.



Just_Elliee @Kateplusmy8 I'm stumped with what 2 get you 4 Christmas!! I've got the kids stuff though :). Any ideas? xD. Hope you're well! x

You have dumbazzes who buy gifts for rich kids they don't even know, and want to buy gifts for a rich ungrateful celebrity who most likely won't even say thank-you. I was watching 60 Minutes the other night about homeless kids who live in cars and bread trucks, who need EVERYTHING but will probably get nothing.

And Kate most certainly did not steer the tweeter away from sending her kids gifts. Lawd have mercy, would it kill her to suggest the lady send gifts to other kids who need more?

She is one greedy grifting mutha flucker, that Kate Go$$elin!

Bwahahahahahahahahaha!!!! I think she was hitting the vino again before this interview ( to make it more fun).

Get it right Billy Sqush. She works for trips, freebies, gray haired bodyguards and gigs on tabloid tv shows where she has a platform to bash Jon. THAT'S what she works for.

She's right, she doesn't. Only the kids do.

Anonymous said...

Not sure why she is saying she won't film with Jon again since Jon was the one who said he won't work with her first. lol.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Why does she act like it's wrong to work for money anyway? People work for money every day in this country and like the garbage man in the 60 Minutes piece last Sunday (the Emmy worthy story on homelessness) they do it with a smile on their face and a "happy to have a job" attitude. People do what they have to do. Normal people need money to eat, sleep, pay mortgage and raise their kids. Normal people don't get by on donations from fans. Good for her she doesn't need to worry about money. The rest of America does except the 1%.

Laurie said...

Just watched the AH video of kate talking about Jon. WHAT.A.BITCH! We all know that if anyone offered her a job on TV with the stipulation that Jon had to be on with her that she'd jump at it. I did like that BB said what if some "psycho producer" offered you,etc., etc. I think that the producer would have to be psycho to offer her anything.

Hanging head in shame said... 33....Ditto to everything you said - and I too am hanging my head in same because I do watch and will probably continue to watch RHBH.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

New post up. It's rather amazing the way Kate has turned the facts around and rewritten history as narcissists tend to do. In actuality, Jon doesn't want to film with her because of HER morals and values, i.e. she wouldn't stop working these kids to death for six years, or has it been seven? Now she claims she can't film with Jon because of his morals and values?

That's not exactly how it went down. Exactly the opposite. TLC did everything they could to try to get Jon to keep filming and it's all over the internet what happened during this time.

Kate's Cart said...

PJ #62 On the noon time edition Monday, Billy and Kit were laughing almost hysterically that Kate was claiming she hadn't had any work done. They didn't spend a lot of time on her, but they were definitely mocking her. To see them today, playing along with her, she just doesn't get that she is but brunt of the jokes. And the questions about filming again with Jon, just trying to trap her in her silly lies about her um "values". Never mind that her forehead does not move.

PJ's momma said...

Kate's Cart, thanks for clearing that up for me. She's so dumb! Her 'friends' Billy and Kit. HA! What a dolt.
