Audrina Patridge says reality T.V. takes a toll on relationships because 'your mindset is to create good TV'

Love vs. Money


Although Kate has always downplayed the role of the show in the disintegration of her marriage, there's no question that reality T.V. is stressful on relationships.




Audrina Patridge, 26, one of Tony's kinder, gentler DWTS partners and star of The Hills, took a break from seven years of filming this year, and says now things in her personal life are more balanced as a result:  "It's hard on relationships, so after the show, Corey and I really worked on what was going on with us. We spent time together. I took five to six months off to just relax. With seven straight years of filming, I didn't really get time to organize my house or do things for myself, so I just took some time off. I moved to the beach."

That picture looks like an ad for GleemBrite tooth polish.

I know nothing about Audrina Patridge, who Corey is, and so I will bow out of that conversation.
See ya'll later.

Fido you don't have to know anything about her. The point is she's on reality tv, and mature enough to understand, at only 26, that it's VERY hard on relationships. .... which should be a duh, but Kate has always been in denial about the toll reality tv takes not just on relationships, but especially on her CHILDREN.

fidosmommy said...

The picture also looks like it's the point where Kate really started tearing Jon apart.......LOL.

Just another fame whore said...

You misspelled Audrina for Audriana above.

I like the way she spins her story "I took a hiatus from filming" when everyone knows her reality show (with her family - who are all crazy and/or alcoholics)was cancelled and she has no other film prospects.

I'm only surprised Kate hasn't said the same thing. "I'm taking a break." From what??

PJ's momma said...

Wow, Kate looks like a totally different person there. Quite pretty, actually.

I'm sick on the couch and watched some entertainment show and they showed Nikki Blonsky working in a salon, sweeping up and doing makeup and enjoying it. Another girl with her head on straight! And she's immensely talented too!

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Taking a break is always code in Hollywood for AXED lol. But I like when people are realistic about what TV is all really about--not all roses. It is very obnoxious when Kate acts like there is absolutely nothing negative about being on TV, or if there is, it is very insignificant and vastly outweighed by things like trips and free organic cereal.

@ Hey Jude (66)

You are being too kind ya know, why don't you tell us what you really feel? Hahahaha

Who is Audrina Patridge? I don't watch much Tv.

*how* not what. Ooops

I really don't know who the people referenced above are but - KG(nee KK) looks 15 years younger in that photo than she does now.

bearswife said...

I never liked Audrina (and I did watch the Hills). I think she just knows (or was told) the right things to say to put herself in a favorable light. She doesn't seem too bright, so I'm guessing she has a good publicist.

I was thinking today how do others in reality tv keep things in perspective. Went over to visit the Roloff's site....Oh my goodness what a difference from the wicked witch of wernersville's site. The roloffs site actually has a purpose, is organized, inviting, warm, honest and all those things that make a site worth clickin'.

Even though I don't agree with the Roloff's putting their kids on tv I agree with their insight. They were making tv and it involved conflict and chaos.

I know Kate believes the kids are just playing with camera crew (who may not have background checks) and they are family to her but for her not to acknowledge the toll it may have taken on her kids shows her trueh colors. I also believe the tinfoil pieplate sheeple may never see the light and that is okay the show is over and I really don't believe Kate will be a staple of Gather articles all of 2012...so all is good.

Teresa said...

@ Admin...LOL that was a tame one..you should seen the one's l didn't copy. Especially Hitler hearing of the divorce! I didn't think you would have allowed it through. lmao.

Gosselin Gossip said...

Audrina was mentioned previously on this blog, as she was Tony's next partner after Kate Gosselin. While both were reality tv stars, they were polar opposites in their attitude, hard work, and determination during their DWTS competition.

I don't have Twitter, wouldn't know how to use it if l did. Maybe someone who has it can put it on there for the sheeple to baaahhhaa at?! I'm sure Smeckygirl(sp) could use it lol

sorry said...

Teresa, not to burst your bubble but that is an old link. It's made the rounds awhile ago.

Teresa said...

Sorry # 19

I hadn't seen it before, l thought it was hilarious no matter when it was made. No bubble to burst here. Thanks for your input all the same. ;o)

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Audrina was Tony's next partner after Kate. Ha, I forgot about how he did a little media blitz basically saying omg a partner who actually works somewhat hard I don't know what to do with myself. That Tony is pretty passive aggressively funny.

Ex- Nurse said...

Theresa--
Thanks for the laugh!

hey jude said...

Teresa, that was funny with Hitler- now those two are a good match.Thanks for the laugh, my sister from another mister! I finally got thru to that other site, but it's so complicated,I think I lost some grey matter.Audrina danced with Tony on DWTS after Kate, such a step up from KK.She wanted to learn to dance, imagine.

hey jude said...

bearwife,

Hi ,long time no see. Did I hear you and someone discussing figure skating in Sask.? I think it was, that is quite interesting as I had 2 competptive skaters,too.

Sorry, OT, Admin.

Pity Party said...

Who is Nikki Blonsky?

Pity Party said...

That is a good picture of the two of them. That was before you started wearing that crazy displaced spike (to show her attitude). Who knew at that time that all she had to do was go on Twitter and her true colors would come shining through (no spikes necessary).

Audrina was a good dancer, but failed to become one with Tony which led me to believe at that time that she was having relationship problems. Funny how things work. I never watched the Hills or any of the real housewives or teen mom shows. Did watch Bethany a bit and love Tori and Dean. At one point Bethany was showing the baby a lot but just heard her say recently that she is puling back on that.

Pity Party said...

Uhh-edit after the fact-puling should be pulling.

TLC stinks said...

That photo shows what the original appeal was..... A happy, young attractive couple with a boatload of cute babies. Wow. I can't get over Kate's physical change.

Yes, TLC destroyed that family or at the very least fast forwarded the destruction and brought to surface some ugly personality traits.

My hope is that with all the controversy regarding reality TV, it has peaked and will finally fade away as the soap operas and game shows.

Anonymous said...

Since we have exhausted the Gosselin saga, how about pursuing the teen moms on MTV? One has repeatedly said (well in the tabloids) that she does not want to to do it anymore, that the producers wake her daughter up to film and that is is extremely intrusive.

I've seen the shows a few times and it is terrifying for these young girls and their babies. Can we refocus on more reality kids? I really have no sympathy for adults that throw themselves into the spotlight.

Here are just some of the relationships killed in Reality TV:

Jon and Kate - Divorce
The Masche's-Divorced-(the other 6 pack family)
The Tuetels - American Chopper father and Son
Kat Von D - Broken engagement
Miami Ink - Ami and his business partner split
The Roloffs - Came very close to separation

Real Housewives:
NeNe and Husband - Divorce
Tamara and Simon - Divorce
LuAnne and the Count - Divorce
Bethenny and Jill - Best friends gone bad
Vicki and Husband - Divorce
Lynn and Husband - Separated ?
Taylor and Russell - Divorce leading to Suicide
Camille and Kelsey-Divorce - brewing prior to TV

Those are just a few from TLC and Bravo

She is a Cow said...

OH, also Patty Stanger, the Matchmaker and her boyfriend/Fiance of 7 years broke up because he didn't like dealing with the TV shoots. Her words. She gave up a 7 year relationship to be on TV, and she apparently was already very successful before her show.

Dmasy said...

The picture at the top of this post highlights the memory of why I watched the show. Kate appears to be a healthy, lovely young woman. Jon has a twinkle in his eyes. Hindsight. They chose a tragic path and dragged 8 little souls along the bumpy road. Good morning.

Anonymous said...

Pity Party 25 -- Nikki Blonsky is the young, healthy sized actress who starred in "Hairspray". She's the one who was blocked from getting onstage by Purseboy, because Kate was in the bathroom, at that skating show/charity event Kate appeared at a couple of years ago. The one where she refused to ride with the skater's mother and demanded a stretch limo.

Readerlady, I remember all of that perfectly as though it were yesterday. She couldn't cuddle w/ Steve in the backseat of a limo had she accepted the ride. As I recall, the woman who offered the ride was not very pleased.

Tucker's Mom said...

I used to watch Patty Stanger's show and I know her boyfriend was camera shy, so they were on 2 divergent paths for a while. Plus, if your man takes 5-6 years to propose (at that age), it's probably not meant to be on both sides.
I'm really happy to say that I've moved on from most reality shows that follow people's lives. I used to watch RH series after series but don't anymore.
No judgement for anyone who watches adults in Reality TV and enjoys, it's just at this point, I know how contrived it is and it's all just a fame game.
I admire Jenna (I think that's her name, the one with the boy in the baseball minors) of Orange County for walking away. Her story line could have lasted a few more seasons but she just had it. Plus, editing made her children look like a-holes.

Dallas Lady said...

Looking at that picture just reminds me how lucky Jon is he's away from her now.

Here's my cool coupon story:

Every year at work, we raise money or items for a selected local charity. This year, it is our battered women's shelter. They need clothes, household items, stuff like that.

So the bosses took $160 of their own money, divided us into four teams and gave us $40 each. Our instructions were to get the items on the list (at a local shopping center) but to get the highest retail value for the $40 that we could. We had a time limit and there were stockings stuffed with little gifts for the first, second and third place winners. We couldn't use our own money, only the $40.

The winning team went to Old Navy and a few other places and found jackets that were 80% off, etc. The coupon part comes in here: we were allowed to use coupons. But most people don't just carry them around. One team found one in the store, but the rest of us didn't have any to use.

The winning team had a woman who uses electronic coupons off her phone. She used those so judiciously, that they got $432 worth of jackets, underwear, bed sheets, and blankets for their $40, with 36 cents left over! They were the winning team!

In all, we bought over $750 worth of new clothing and bedding items for the women's shelter for $160 (as a whole group). It was fun, exciting, and for a good cause.

When the winning team told us they used "coupons on the phone" everyone wanted to know how, and she explained it all to us. Quite simple, really. You can use an online coupon code in the store just like a regular coupon.

Now THAT'S a great couponing tip, and it was used to help others in need. If Kate moved past the tip of her nose and interacted with others in the world, she might have had a story like that to share on Coupon Cabin.

Tucker's Mom said...

Dallas Lady, I'm blown away by your story. That is so inspiring. Now that could be a "Gosselins give back" story, but unfortunately, the cameras aren't rolling anymore.
I truly wonder if the folks at CC are pulling their hair out over Kate's inability to provide more than very basic couponing information and poorly-written anecdotes about her kids. And by about her kids, I mean about her.
Perhaps though, CC is just happy with the controversy and attention that Kate bring to their little goat rodeo.

Dmasy said...

Dallas Lady...I have been waiting for your coupon story. Well worth the anticipation. Obviously, you work for a fun and inspiring company. You could send your post to CC and they would probably shout, "You are hired!" They must be fatigued with Kate stories by now. Thanks for all your posts. Great story.

She's such a c word said...

Tucker's Mom, I went over to CC's Facebook page last night and this morning and didn't see one mention of Kate. Just people vying for a Kitchen-Aid stand mixer yesterday, and pet/kid photos today.

______________--

That was one of the few times I didn't fault Kate. I wouldn't have accepted the ride either. Nothing against the volunteer, I'm sure she was a lovely person, but Kate didn't know who she was, didn't know her driving record, insurance information, or anything about her.

Whether that that was the reason she didn't accept the ride, who knows? But, had a stranger come to pick me up in a car, I would have also declined.

Just an FYI for those who may be interested. The Biography Channel is doing a show on the 10 most hated celebrities in America. Can you guess who is one of them?? It's on Wednesday night at 10:00pm.

But probably none of that made any difference to Kate. She grifts from strangers readily to the extent even of feeding her children food strangers send to her.

I don't think Kate gave even a second's thought to the important issues you mention. She just knew that a stah like her was entitled to what she wanted, and that wasn't a shared ride.

Pam said...

Sorry, I just have to laugh at Audrina's comment.

What is she...all of 24-25?

Poor thing had to work for 7 years and needed 6 months off to relax? How many hiatus breaks did she get off between each season of The Hills? Like 3-4 months off in between each season?

Good grief! Try starting work when you are 16 and are 44 now, with only 3 week vacations a year. There is NO WAY these people filmed 7 straight years with no time off. How many tabloid pictures were there of her in Cabo or playing on a beach somewhere? And when she was filming, how hard is it to sit around in bars and lay by the pool while being filmed?

This girl ( although she is sweet and beautiful ) does NOT live in the real world.

These people crack me up.

My college always had a member of whatever student club pick up guest speakers from the airport. No one ever complained. Supreme Court justices road with students to campus. I suspect most of them see it as a fun opportunity to talk to a student meet someone new someone part of what you're going to be attending, rather than a limo driver, not that there's anything wrong with a limo driver, but most people don't chat them up.

chefsummer said...

Kate was in love with the money when it starting coming in.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Pam, it does speak to how out of touch living in the "reality tv world" can make you though. The same thing happened to Kate. She's lost touch with the woman and mother she used to be. She doesn't relate well to anyone anymore. Part of it is her own mental illness, but part of it is the isolation the show has brought her.

Anonymous said...

I could understand Kate's refusing to ride with a stranger, about whom she knew nothing, had she procured other transportation for herself that didn't cost the charity money. Heck, she could have driven herself, or had Purseboy drive her. The event wasn't all that far from her home -- a couple of hours IIRC. But to make a charity, for the survivors of first responders killed in the 9/11 attacks, pay out to provide her with luxury transportation, was despicable.

I use coupons and refund. I used to do it a lot more. When I was still working full time, the unit I supervised decided to adopt a family for Christmas. We held fundraisers (a yard sale, a soup/salad lunch at the office, etc.) and raised several hundred dollars (I don't remember the exact total) to spend on food,clothing and toys for our family. I had been saving my free item coupons (mostly procured through refund offers from various companies) and we were able to get free eggs; bread; ground beef; produce; cheese; personal care items such as toothpaste, soap, detergent, deodorant, etc.; and a free backpack in addition to the things we bought. Kate's blog would be a lot more effective and educational if she used actual examples -- for instance, she said she saved over $50 that one shopping trip. So -- what did she buy, what was the value of the coupons she used, and where did she get the coupons? This past week I had a $.75 off coupon for XYZ toothpaste. One of our local stores had it on sale for $1.50, plus they were offering a store-sponsored online rebate for $1.00. I made $.25 on the transaction. That's an example of what couponing can do. Think Kate could bother explaining something like that instead of bragging and whining her whole blog?

......I posted that I read my girls that book 'the Night before Christmas every year.She copies things written and said here all the time, yet claims she doesn't,lying sack of fecal mass.She thinks that makes her a Mom, but not her,she just doesn't pass the physical.

__________________________________

I'm trying to figure out a way to say this without being snarky, but it's hard. I seriously doubt she lifted the idea of reading The Night Before Christmas....on Christmas Eve....which IS the night before Christmas.....from you. Millions of families do that every Christmas Eve, and it is a lovely tradition.

Maybe she hasn't done it before and it's new to them this year - I don't know - but I had to chuckle at this age-old tradition being all your idea, because it reminded me of Kate claiming the flag cake as her own invention.

Red Sky At Night said...

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

That may very well be true. There may have been many reasons she declined the ride, one of them being entitlement. However, it could also be that she didn't know this person, nor her driving record, and that also came into play. I only know why I would have declined a ride from a stranger. There are some of my friends I won't even ride with. I'm always the driver. Even on long drives I seldom, if ever, let another person drive, and I'm not a control freak. I just don't trust another person driving!

Westcoaster said...

Dallas Lady, that's a great coupon story, and yes, that is exactly what CC should be posting at this time of year. Apparently they picked the wrong person for a blogger, in oh so many ways. They have K8 G, a lazy couponer at best, a horrible writer and thus far has managed to make her rewritten columns all about her.

As for Ms. Patridge, well, she may be right about relationships at her tender age, but with the Gosselins it was never about making "good tv" - it was always about making money, and K8, post Jon, made that more than clear. TLC may have been driving the train, but she destroyed that marriage and split that family. - there will be many lonely years ahead for her. "Days are long, years are short".

Anonymous said...

Devil's Advocate -- I think hey jude intended her post to be snarky tongue in cheek.

Re Kate's "tradition" of reading "The Night Before Christmas" to her kids. Why doesn't she have a tradition of reading the Christmas story from the Bible to her kids. After all, she's taught them not to believe in Santa, so why doesn't she read something more in keeping with her "Christian beliefs". When I was growing up, my Dad always read "The Night Before Christmas" and the Christmas Story from Luke. When I learned to read, we would alternate. As I got older, and "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" was published, we added that. Mom was in charge of making hot chocolate and buttered toast, and this was our Christmas Eve tradition for years, even after I grew up and moved out on my own.

The kids at school often write or tell about Christmas traditions in their families, and since so many families (ours included) read the story on Christmas Eve, it's possible that one of the children brought the idea home to Kate and she decided to do it.
Or, she could have been watching National Lampoons Christmas Vacation! :)

I think you meant 'should be' because with Kate it 'could and would' never happen because:
1. Kate doesn't give back. She probably doesn't know the meaning of those two words
and
2. Kate doesn't really use online coupons, in fact, I'll bet she doesn't know the first thing about navigating her way through couponing sites. She's admitted she doesn't know her way around a computer and in the clip from her first day on the cough, cough job, she was told to click the red X in the corner to close the page.

She's such a piece of work...

Devil's Advocate said...

Readerlady - I don't think she was being tongue in cheek. That was the second post about it, and the first was even more bitter and hate-filled.

Besides, who really cares what Kate does on Christmas Eve, as long as her children are safe, with her or Jon, and not being exploited. I couldn't care less if she claims to be a Christian but reads them a Santa story instead of from the Bible. It kind of cracks me up how everyone claims to not care about her blog but then rushes to critique everything she says in it, reading/analyzing/copying her tweets, etc. Yeah, I know you think it matters because she is a liar and putting herself out there as Wonder Mom. But still - WHO CARES - who is she hurting by claiming to be that? And yeah, I know that it is a shame she is away traveling so much. But many women are in that situation, and many of them claim to be super mothers because they "do it all" (even though they're being supported by nannies, a husband, etc.). It's said that Kate's children are likely better cared for when they are with their nanny or Jon. So WHO CARES? if she chooses to travel and be away from them. If anything, it is sad for her because it is HER loss that she will likely regret in the future.

Dallas Lady @ 37 - Congratulations to you and your co-workers - what a wonderful job you all did in support of your local women's shelter. As well as all the essentials you provided, may I remind readers that what really gives these unfortunate women a "lift" is the occasional "luxury" of what most of us consider essentials. Over the years when I am travelling I accumulate the little toiletry items left in my hotel rooms, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, etc. and include these with my donation of clothing, towels and bedding to our local battered women's shelter.

I think Kate is into this Twitter because: Bloggers comment on it, keeps her relevant, and she has no friends to chat with. If she wasn't twatting, would we even be talking about her still? I guess I can't help myself because her life has played out so publicly and she's so messed up, which is not a good thing for those kids.

Dwindle said...

I am so glad that Katie Irene has become a bit dull. This is all a far cry from 6 years of proudly displaying her emotional dysfunction and mental imcomptencies on TV and someone actually PAYING her for it. Those children have been nothing to her but the straight-men in her act; the objects that she plays her minute by minute abuse, breakdowns, and tantrums to, mainly because someone at TLC told her it was entertaining to the masses.

In looking at her tweets and her constant "Every mom knows..." I realize what a lost child she is. No, every mom does NOT know whatever BS she is making up at the time, whatever BS she is desperatly seeking affirmation on. She has no idea how to care for children, nuture children, parent children, and how to be the backbone of a family. She seems to have no examples to emulate, no insticts to call on, no love in her heart to guide her. Was there nothing family-oriented that was modeled her, or has she always been oblivious to everyone and everything, in her own self important fanstasy land?

Interesting case study. Too bad she had to birth 8 count em 8 people to permanently damage.

LaLaLandNoMore said...

Kate is a piece of work, but even better I would use "liar, liar, pants on fire." Yes, she and Jon began the show as a needy, attractive couple with 8 kids. In short order, they became trapped by the money. Kate went Hollywood and it was over. They are the example of what not to do with out lives. Sad for the kids to be read "Night before Christmas" when they have been taught not to believe in Santa. No logic with these people at all.

I never have anything good to say about the Gosselin mess. I need to take a break. Merry Christmas to all and God bless!

fidosmommy said...

True, it is odd for a parent who has declared there is no Santa Claus to be reading a poem all about Santa Claus..... but then again, this poem
is such a classic. It's part of the American tradition. It's not really Christmas, it's not Hanukkah. It's not religious, it's seasonal. I've never met a child who didn't like it. It's just a happy little story about a jolly old elf and his bowl full of jelly. It's like reading a story about Prince Charming. You don't have to believe he exists to enjoy hearing about him in a bedtime story.

I'm glad the kids get to hear the poem. It's a wonderful piece of children's literature. I'm not sure this has to be confusing to them.

That being said, just because a limo driver drives for a limo company doesn't mean he is a good or safe driver. Look at all the bus drivers in the news lately for serious infractions of all sorts. SHE just wanted a limo which to her is much more befitting of her status (in HER mind).

Although Audrina Patridge worked well with Tony on DWTS, she was a sore loser when she didn't get the votes to stay on the show. She did a few interviews on how she felt about it, and came across as greedy and ungrateful. Then the paparazzi got her mother on camera while outside of a bar smoking a cig....and she went into this sleezy drunken tirade about the greatness of her daughter, adding how unfair & corrupt it was that she was no longer on the show. It was so bad and classless. Later on when Audrina was asked what she thought of her mother's tasteless remarks, she said she supported them entirely & proceeded to make herself look even worse.

As far as her recent comments on reality TV....not sure what to make of it, but do believe she was fired from her job. After seeing her character throughout the DWTS aftermath, I don't have anything but disdain for her actions.

fidosmommy said...

The ice show ride sounds like a lot of noncommunication to me. With all those cell phones attached to everyone's ear, Kate could have been called to say an SUV would be coming for her, Kate could have said NO WAY, another mode of transportation could have been found BEFORE the nice woman made that long trip and went home with empty seats in her vehicle.

Gosselin8ComeFirst said...

I think Kate's 15 minutes are down to about 6 or less minutes.... CC, marthon, she is becoming much less relevant by the minute. And she knows it, or should see the writing on the wall.

Regardless,I wish nothing but the best for the kids, although this is not likely to happen on Kate Watch. A lot of the damage has been done, so she and Jon will be left to clean up the mess for the rest of their lives.

Devil's Advocate -- I think hey jude intended her post to be snarky tongue in cheek.

Re Kate's "tradition" of reading "The Night Before Christmas" to her kids. Why doesn't she have a tradition of reading the Christmas story from the Bible to her kids. After all, she's taught them not to believe in Santa, so why doesn't she read something more in keeping with her "Christian beliefs".




%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%



Hahahaha, I thought the same thing. She's taught her kids there is no Santa, so much so that they tell their classmates there is no Santa...

but we're supposed to believe this sugary story of Kate reading "The Night Before Christmas" while her kids are tucked in bed?

LMAO!!!!! She lies so freakin' bad it's getting kind of sad.

My dad read "The Night Before Christmas" to me, my siblings, and then to the grandkids every Christmas Eve for 59 years.

Note to Kate: now THAT is a Christmas tradition.

My sweet dad died just 8 weeks ago. I can't imagine Christmas without him. Yet I Praise God for the genuine memories - unlike Kate's manufactured fake ones.

Pants on Fire, condolences on the recent loss of your dad. You're right. Memories made by loving people are definite keepers. Actually, the smaller the thing you remember (a story read) the sweeter it remains in your heart. I wish you peace and love at Christmas. Keep those memories flowing, share them!

I do not believe for one second that Kate does now or has EVER read that story to her kids. I am on overload w/ her lies--everything she says is a fairytale.

With all those cell phones attached to everyone's ear, Kate could have been called to say an SUV would be coming for her, Kate could have said NO WAY, another mode of transportation could have been found BEFORE the nice woman made that long trip and went home with empty seats in her vehicle.
********

From this article, it doesn't seem like non-communication, but rather Kate being a biotch.

Snipped from the article about Kate's diva ways at the ice show in September '09.

"While she sweetly waived any sort of appearance fee, the octomom insisted that the Heritage Foundation foot the bill for a car service to shuttle her and Neild from Washington, D.C., to Danbury, a trek of more than five hours.

Such a request would inevitably ring up quite a cab fare for the small nonprofit, so one of the skater's mothers offered her services—and that of her shiny 2010 SUV—to pick them up and bring them to the event.

"When she pulled up to the hotel in Washington, Kate's bodyguard came up to the car and said she wasn't getting in," an insider tells E! News.

Neild told the generous mother that Gosselin, who had been informed of the transportation provided in advance, required a stretch limo with a divider. Only after the skating mother left to make the lengthy journey alone did the Gosselin camp set up their own chariot.

But that wasn't the end of it.

"It was really difficult to find a place to get her into the building because she wanted a side entrance, no crowd, no parking garage, and she needed to be dropped off right next to the entrance," Hoffman recalls. "It took three security guards and two others to get her to her dressing room."

Gosselin wasn't exactly friendly to the A-list skaters, either..."

I'm sad to report that I've not read (Twas) The Night Before Christmas to my family. : (
I'd only seen it done as a tradition in the Christmas Vacation movie. I'm feeling a bit neglectful! ; )

I do find it, as several posters do, ironic that Khate would read THAT poem well knowing her children were denied the childhood fantasy of believing in Santa. It's like an atheist reading passages from the bible. : /

Although our Christmas Eve lacks the reading of a great poem, it's not short on tradition. Our C.E. is spent with our extended family(four generations) eating a full spread of delicious food, watching the youngest open gifts next, then our hilarious white elephant type gift exchange, and a final gift exchange between adults. It is so much fun!

Yes, with the massive number of gifts opened there seems to be a sea of wrapping paper but it's part of the tradition and collecting/disposing of it is anything but drudgery.

I hosted C.E. last year; it's my bother's turn this year (hosting rotates). What we do is neither new nor original. It's simply a family tradition... and I LOVE IT!

Midnight Madness said...

That being said, just because a limo driver drives for a limo company doesn't mean he is a good or safe driver.

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

No, it doesn't. But it means that he is employed by a service; he has passed all credentials needed to be a driver; his insurance has to be up to date, and he is bonded. In addition, a limo driver has a CDL class A, B or C with passenger and or S endorsement. They undergo state police criminal background checks, DOT mandated initial and periodic drug screening. That's a big difference than having a random person show up in an SUV, with a person having absolutely no knowledge who they are, if they've ever had their license suspended or so forth. Companies do background checks; an unknown driver is just that -- unverified and unknown.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the "Grinchy Gosselin" link. I particularly like the idea of saving some of the wrap, ribbons, etc, and taking them out the following November so that each kid can make a Christmas ornament for that year's tree. Imagine finding them in a box 20 years on, and remember sitting with your siblings, sharing the glue and washing glitter out of your hair for days afterwards. Now THAT'S making memories!

Kate is running on a straight road at a steady 12 mph and is being chased by a dog running at 15 miles per hour. If Kate is 50 feet ahead of the dog and each continues at the same rate, how long, to the nearest 10th of a minute, will it take the dog to catch up to the runner/Kate? (1 mile = 5,280 ft)

Barb in Nebraska, is that math problem my punishment for not paying attention here? If so,I'll take the trip to the principal's office instead, OK? Thanks.

Anyway, I don't see that Kate said she's tweeting anything. She's making up word problems, but she can do that without a phone. Paying attention to the road is another issue, however.

Westcoaster said...

Lste bus pickup means kids who get on a bus @ 7 am get home @ 6 pm? Now I feel even sorrier for these kids, tho I guess late pickup means after school activities for them. That is a really long day for a child, and even more free time for SuperMom - wonder how that baking is coming? A year ago she was making plans for Australia; guessing 1/12 is going to be a tad quieter.

For readerlady..post #54. I just caught a snippet of the announcement and immediately went and recorded the program but they were also talking about Spencer and Heidi Pratt.

fidosmommy said...

In Kate's world, every math problem is solved with the number 8. It's the only number she know.

barbee said...

#93, good points brought up. However, bus drivers are checked out also and if some of them can be not the best, it would stand to reason you can't swear that ALL limo drivers are. And she would not be thinking of the drivers record but more of her status symbol (i.e., arriving in a limo). And add to that her own crappy driving habits and who is she to question anyone else's ability? This is just MY opinion and whether you agree or not, I HAVE the right to state it without being read all the facts that you determine are pertinent in an attempt to downplay my opinion and knowledge of what limo drivers requirements may be.

Katie Cry-duh said...

Yeah agreed all math problems equal 8. If mommy lies to doctor and gets unnecessary IUI to try for HOMs, how many kids does mommy have and complain about ad nauseum?

I don't believe that anyone downplayed any opinion, or disagreed with you when you stated that bus drivers aren't always great drivers, but rather simply stated why she may have decided to go with a limo driver rather than with somebody she didn't know. Of course, the fact that she wanted to make the most of her star status also most likely was in the front of her mind!
Maybe I missed something?

Pants -- I am so sorry for your loss. I'm just getting caught up on the posts. May you find peace this holiday season with family and friends. It's always difficult to know what to say, but please know that others are thinking about you.

I don't get the Bio channel but if someone else does let us know. I'm more interested in the company Kate is grouped with. Not sure how we know Kate is on the list as I didn't see that anywhere. But even so does she not understand she is in the same camp as your Charlie Sheens and Alec Baldwins? And that she and she alone put herself there, not anyone else.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I hope she is not texting while driving too but I imagine it must get really tiring as a kid to have mom constantly tweeting to her fans even if she's not driving. Can't she put her phone down and pay attention to her children?

It sounds so Joan Crawford-ish, she was always talking about and responding to her the fans, the fans, my fans. I imagine if she had twitter she'd be all over it. I can imagine at a certain point you're just like Shut UP Mom I'm your biggest fan don't you see that? But I won't be for long so take advantage.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Back to the limo thing, but I would believe it were actually about Kate being concerned about a safe driver (this from a woman who pushes 90mph) if she just asked for a car, i.e. a driver service. The fact that she says LIMO plus with the back door entrance etc suggests it was all about being treated like a star. A five hour limo ride is an enormous waste of gas and money and would also make a heck of a lot more sense to use a towncar for that reason alone.

Contrary to Kate's new money belief, most people in LA who hire a car get town car sedans, not limos. They are trying to be discreet. Limos Kate? Are very 1991.

Out And About In Berks County PA said...

I know next to nothing about the workings of Twitter, but I do check twazzup, and lately (at night) I get the error - Over Quota message. What exactly does this mean? Overload? Too many people tweeting or reading? Is there any way to get around this?

"A five hour limo ride is an enormous waste of gas and money and would also make a heck of a lot more sense to use a towncar for that reason alone."
===============

Yes, it would...and she could request a Town Car offered by a service and driver. I'm wondering if such a vehicle would have shown up (from a company) if she would have accepted the services or still have demanded a limo. Perhaps she is totally clueless about a Town Car even being a option and thought all employed drivers use limos! She really doesn't have too much upstairs

Out And About In Berks County PA said...

I'm watching Chef Ramsay. He just said, "Then we are all in agreeance." Maybe Kate heard it from him? :)

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Kate watches too much TV and thinks that just because a star takes a limo to the Academy Awards they always live like that. I have seen several celebs driving themselves to events, in normal cars. Volvos, Hondas, Fords, Chevys. And it's very rare to see a limo at LAX, if anything, it's obnoxious because it takes up precious space.

Hi, everyone.I must apologize for causing such a kerfuffle with my post about "The Night Before Christmas" story. Next, I suppose you will be telling me "Old Yeller" was a made for tv movie, Bambi was fake, there is no Easter bunny and oh, Virginia, there is no Santa Claus? sniff, oh my goodness.

My Christmas is ruined....How could you? I can't let you taint my precious memories with your vitriolic words -yes, you really are the Devil's Advocate, you really, really are. My Mom passed away 5rs. ago yesterday-I miss her so much it hurts some days. Forgive me for all my pathetic attempts at snark. You posted that you tried,but it was really hard for you to say something nice,wonder why that is? My Mom always said if you had nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all.Wise woman;I'm not as nice as she was at all.

Thanks to all who came to my defence here- readerlady, you always have my back , La la, Pam, Admin.,Dwindle, Teresa, Ana, Fido,Winsome and most of you ladies here at one time or another are greatly appreciated for your wisdom ,kindness and wit.

My Mom was the sweetest on Earth and all our traditions I carried on with my girls- she loved Christmas so much and we didn't have much money, but we had everything we could ever want or need, thanks to her. She had the ability to have all of us kids think we were rich growing up! I still feel that richness of spirit, especially at this time of year.

Pants on Fire- I am so sorry for the loss of your precious Dad recently. Thinking of you and sending healing thoughts and prayers. He will always be with you, as you always carry him in a special corner of your heart.I find the song 'To Where You Are," by Josh Grobin helps me to feel better- love his sweet voice.Hope you find some hope,love and peace in your remembrances of your Dad this Christmas.Lost my Dad as a teen-ager, so Mom was extra special.

Kate's kids will never have that with their Mother; she doesn't have the ability to even understand that the best gifts cost nothing at all. She's a very ill woman, clutching at how to look like a good Mom,and failing miserably. Fond memories come from sharing in the rituals, words, hugs, jokes,cooking smells,sharing food and loving each other,not in spite of the warts and faults, but because of them.

Dallas lady, what a lovely story,thanks for sharing that.I always love your posts.Giving back feels so much better than just getting gifts.

I wish all of you a Happy Christmas time,spent with all those you hold dear.Wish we could keep that feeling of good will and peace all year long.

I am making a Shepherd's pie that Chef Ramsey had on his show last night.The secret to it's taste is 1/4 minced mutton with 3/4ground beef,and the smell is just heavenly- so good. Anyone want some? Come on over and I will give you some eggnog too.

I used to read 'I'll love you forever' by Robert Munsch to my girls and they are reading it to their kids now.Love that book, good gift for Christmas.Books are still my favourite thing to receive and give- they can take you away for a little trip or one that lasts a month, without leaving the house.Take care everyone and hold your families tight tonight- tell them you love them, so you have no regrets.

Sorry for the epistle to you all, maybe I should write a book!

Pants, hey jude -- so sorry you are missing family members at the Holidays. Especially you, Pants. So soon after your father's passing. My condolences. I know what both of you are dealing with. My father died the day after Christmas. It was nearly 30 years ago, but sometimes it feels like last year. It does get easier as time passes, for the most part. Just hang on to your good memories and find some that make you smile.

Jo -- thanks for trying to find out who else is included in the Biography Channel program. I too hope it isn't Jon who's on the list. It really disappoints me and makes me angry that people continue to snark on him and hold him in contempt for behavior that occurred over 2 years ago. He's apologized and tried to make amends and has tried to live an exemplary life the past couple of years, but some people just won't forgive and forget. Yet Kate, who has escalated her bad behavior, always seems to get a pass. Life just isn't fair sometimes.

It could be based on the number of hits the blog gets ,or, the number of times clicks for the links in her blog posts. I hope they are not paying her a flat fee for each blog entry. They would be screwing themselves if they did it that way.

Pants on Fire, I want to add my thoughts to the other posters who sent kindness your way. Those of us who have lost parents can only tell you that time will help. The memories get stronger and the hurt gets less sharp. God bless you.

Marie said...

What I fail to understand is, if she posted that entry to a blog for CC--where is the business connection? Why would a coupon business allow Kate to write solely about her family's Christmas?

Whatever they are paying her, most jobs mow require minimum wage so she's at least earning....what, $5-6 bucks an hour every time she actually works? I don't know how they pay her actually so it's a guess.

fidosmommy said...

Kate did a photo shoot for her article in Runnersworld today. Do I hear subscriptions being dropped?

This, too, shall pass said...

I may be behind, but I'm going to post about this anyway.

I linked over to an article at celebs.gather.com about Khate's greed. At the bottom I found another article about Khate rubbing her feet with Vicks. It's a funny jab at her recommendation.

I don't know how to post links, or actually no if they're allowed. Admin, I understand you'll delete if inappropriate.

http://celebs.gather.com/viewArticle.action?articleId=281474980900976

This, too, shall pass said...

fidosmommy ~ Did you see her tweet about it? If so, did you see the immediate blast from a male who appears to be a runner, "you are a fraud.. Lipstick on before you finish.. Go away!"

fidosmommy said...

This too shall pass, no I did not see the reply.
I just saw her tweet on the top of this page. I actually LOOKED this time :-)

That response was certainly a good one, though. Runners know who's for real and who's a pretender. Why would a runner's magazine choose Kate? There must be a minimum of 50,000 people in the USA and Canada who run regularly, learned how to do it properly AND can write. I'm truly baffled by all this.

This, too, shall pass said...

I'm baffled, too, fidosmommy.

The more I consider all the advantages Khate has/had in preparation to run, signing up and attending the marathon, and opporunity to recoup following the maration, the more I realize that she can't be the equivalent of an average mother.

What active mother wouldn't do more running (or other activity) if they had the same help Khate had? How about everyone who facilitated her in attending the marathon? Being able to recoup in Las Vegas for an extended period of time afterward IS NOT an advantage the average mother has.

I call foul on any respresentation of Khate as an average mother (or mother of 8, count 'em 8) who's accomplished the goal of completing the maration.

This, too, shall pass said...

Correction ~ I was searching my mind for the right word, but settled. Sentence should have read,
"Being able to recoup in Las Vega for an extended period of time afterward IS NOT a LUXURY the average mother has."

ncgirl said...

I wonder if Kate is writing the Runners World article or is being interviewed. She's making Julie Carson May work hard for her money. Kate is going to be famous as something whether it's a mother, chef, talk show, runner, etc. If running fails, what's next?

Pity Party said...

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

I rest my case.

I've said for months, this is EXACTLY why she took up running and entered a marathon. She knew it would get her some much needed media attention and her ginormous ego fed.

Her FIRST fitness magazine article...and hopefully the LAST! I guess when fitness attention dries up, she move on to another genre for seeking fame. She's soooooooooooooo predictable.

PJ's momma said...

Friends, I saw the commercial for Bio's '10 Most Hated' and it was Jon they mentioned by name.

You know, I peruse Runner's World occasionally, at the physical therapist's office (running injury), ironically. I'll look at the issue AFTER Kate's to see the letters to the editor. I doubt they'll be kind!

Phoenix Rising said...

@134..."So even if the comment is from an actual regular, take a deep breath and cut her some slack."

%%%%%%%%

I haven't seen any nasty posts, other than one from Devil about the Night Before Christmas, and admin did send her a reminder to follow posting rule #3.

Have any photos or videos surfaced showing Kate on a scooter, bike or bus, or standing along the side of the route with Steve? I think it's surprising that nobody caught her on camera. Could she be this lucky, or did she really run the entire route and still come up looking daisy fresh?

Teresa said...

Bambi was Fake!!!!! Ohhhhh Nooooo! Wait till Herr Hitler hears about that!
Hey Jude, go ahead make my day and write that book - l'll buy it :)

Anita said...

Most of the comments about Kate on the Runner's World forums are negative.

Katie cry-duh said...

Runners world can choose to write a stupid fluff piece a la people magazine and if they do, they'll insult their readership. You know, people dedicated enough to running to actually read runners world. Even if Kate did run that marathon (eye roll), how she did it was cavalier. Argh, what am I saying? The bitch didn't run it and runners world needs to run away from this poison.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I'm going to go out on a limb and say the readers of Runner's World are going to be insulted by almost any celeb plastid on their cover who is clearly a fame whore and just picked up running on a whim. They'll see right through her, and anyone who tries to do what she did.

My hunch is celebs who are actually interested in marathons for personal reasons and not fame (for instance, Howie Mandel discreetly ran the triathlon I saw with the Hoyts) wouldn't be interested in doing a bunch of interviews about it and photoshoots.

$$$$$$

If she didn't run it, why hasn't she been outed? Certainly there must be some sleuths out there, some investigators who could uncover what really happened during that race. Has this become Marathongate?

Cali runner said...

I doubt Kate will get the cover. Runners world has a section called "I'm a runner" and they feature famous people who run, it's on the last page of the magazine. I'm pretty sure that's what it was for.

Tess said...

FWIW, I wrote a note to Runner's World. I used to run and do triathlon's, but since our 1, count 'em, 1 kid, who needs and gets our attention, the runs/tris will wait a few more years.
The gist of the note was that the mag was going to quickly lose credibility if they started heading in the direction of featuring washed up reality personalities over true athletes.
I hope this move by RW backfires, and they suffer some loses. As if any accomplished runner wants to hear what KK has to say. Gah!

Tess said...

Geez, make that triathlons (not 's), need to proofread better.

G'night all

fidosmommy said...

I hope Kate was told she won't be the cover girl before she ran out to buy her new Nike running gear and got her hair bleached and extended. What a waste to do all that and end up at the back of the magazine. Pobrecita.

hey jude said...

barbee,

I wish you would stay.I really enjoy your posts.I have been finding lately that it isn't the regulars that are saying the comments that upset you. It happened to me for mentioning something as a joke and it went postal. More than likely sheeple, don't let them run you off, please.

fido- thank you for keeping faith alive with the tooth fairy.The only one my grandson gave me grief about. Amma, you let a stranger in my room when I'm sleeping?- uh uh, no thanks.I'm keeping my tooth.

Mel said...

She just lives for those photo shoots.....

Marie said...

No offense, but seriously? You know the more Kate builds herself up for every thing in her life that she does as exciting (!!!!) might she be setting herself up for when she can no longer get that fix? When the glamor of what she stands for (mom of 8) fades away?

Normal people aren't excited all the time. Least not me. Not ever opportunity in life is golden or falls into your lap. Some people actually you know have to work at it. I can't stand the woman because she thinks all the life opportunities that thrill her will last forever.

Katie Cry-duh said...

Bells on Bobtail, of course I don't know that Kate didn't run the marathon. But there's lots of red flags to suggest she didn't run a clean race. This is what happens when you lie all the time. She may have run the entire race, but many don't believe her. And she's such a jerk that most don't even care anymore

Yes, but wouldn't it be something if just this once someone could uncover something with proof that she didn't run...something she could not weasel out of? Just this once! She seems to always be able to lie her way out of everything, and it never catches up with her. Why is that?

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

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

Because people like her never quit. Never. LaFair is a great example of Kate's M.O. Kate's lying and grifting finally caught up to her and Kate LOST in court. But f the court system this is KATE, she always gets her way no matter what. Kate appeals, and LaFair realizes not only is she going to be fighting this woman all the way to the Supreme Court if she keeps this up, but she's going to go broke doing it. LaFair, wisely, called it quits.

Kate is not able to process things the way a normal person like LaFair does, i.e. time, money, stress, expense, I should really just quit it's not worth it. Everything is worth it to Kate as long as she wins, even if it means lying, cheating, twisting the truth, not paying people for services rendered, etc to get there.

Since just about everyone else has a limit, she knows they're all going to bow out before she ever does. This is classic narcissism, they will always, always stay in the game and hold out longer than you can. And if you try to hold out longer, you will go crazy.

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

Oh, isn't that cute how Khate just threw that tweet out there at the end of the night and signed off Twitter? She knows exactly what she's doing - getting BOTH sides all worked up. The sheeple must be giddy, planning on buying 20 copies each, and the non-fans are just sick to death of her.

Since she wants us all to go nuts, I say we just ignore it. Clearly, many of us are leaning that way these days anyway. She is so irrelevant to 99.99% of the world at this point, and getting worse every day.

Hey, Khate - I'm thrilled for you that you were able to indulge your narcissistic self with a magazine shoot today and "article". It's too bad that you have to spend your life fighting so hard to obtain these THINGS that you think mean something, that validate you, and fill some horrible void in your life. Unfortunately for your kids, you really will never know what is important in life and how very, very much you are missing out on. This is most apparent at this time of year when most of us are happily planning and looking forward to spending the holidays with our family and friends, and you......tweet a photo of your half decorated Christmas tree to strangers who don't care, make up a fantasy life for yourself on Twitter, and claw desperately to find some way for people to pay attention to you. I "honestly" do feel sorry for you that your life is so lacking, and by the looks of things will get lonelier, emptier and more pitiful every year. I would never want to be in your shoes, whether they be high heels or Asics Gel-Kayanos.

Please move on from discussing the blog and how it's run, the posters and how they post, what you don't like about each other, etc. There are two options if you don't like the blog or other posters: email us, or leave.

Discuss topics and opinions, not other posters or the blog please. This goes for all posters. I'm going to be strict now on maintaining a friendly environment.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

By the way, comparing other posters here to Kate, which was done twice today (by I suspect the same person), is NOT likely to win you many friends, knowing how people feel about her.

That's just one example of why comments like that get deleted--they're not friendly.

Nobody Likes a Narcissist (NLAN) said...

I just want to add ANOTHER grifting tweet. I've already posted tweets from several teens and tweens shipping Christmas gifts to Khate. A few days ago, I posted the tweets from Ellie, the teen in England who tweeted to Maggie, the 10 or 11 year old English girl, that she was so shocked that it cost over $23 to ship her package to Khate. There was then an exchange between that teen and young Maggie as to what Ellie got them (chocolates and Olympic souvenirs), and how it took Ellie "ages to find something they'd all like." So, I guess Maggie finally got something too. Remember, she's the one who sent the twins birthday gifts and then had to tweet Khate many times, begging to know whether Khate even received the package. So, tonight:

MaggieGeorge1 Maggie George
@Kateplusmy8 I'm sorry your presents will be late this year : ( x o x Have a nice night
December 13th, 5:04 PM

@Kateplusmy8 Kate Gosselin
@MaggieGeorge1 aww you're so sweet... :)
December 13th, 10:04 PM


I just really cannot believe Khate gets away with encouraging this. It all started as soon as the show was canceled and she was allowing sheeple to send her books and photos to autograph and return. I think she actually got that idea from some of US, because before Khate ever suggested it, I know it was on Twitter and posted here that if Khate loved her fans so much, she should allow them to send her books and photos to sign. I feel bad, because I'm the one who posted it here and said since sheeple were asking about ever getting to see her at a book signing (lol), that Khate should just offer to sign things if they sent a self-addressed, stamped envelope. I never thought she'd do it, though. But, not long after that, that is exactly what she started doing!

Little did I know that she would use that as a means of providing her mailing address to the sheeple and getting GIFTS from them! So, now most of them have her address and are probably sending her gifts even if they don't tweet about it. That means, Khate can rely on them to send gifts four times a year - the twins' birthday, Christmas, Khate's birthday and the sextuplets' birthday. UNBELIEVABLE!

Nobody Likes a Narcissist (NLAN) said...

Hey, at the risk of sounding childish, I just want to point out that Admin's comments sandwiched between my two comments tonight have nothing to do with me! I haven't been here all day and I'm just catching up, and I just posted those two comments.

I do see that there appear to have been some issues here today and I just have to say that I ventured over to the dark side recently and saw them griping about not being able to post here. After reading around a bit, I am convinced that at least a few sheeple do post here. Too bad they are unwilling to use the same posting names here, but mostly, they just prefer to play games and stir stuff up. They clearly read every single comment here and it's their favorite topic of discussion. Funny, they also post Jon's tweets. Idiots.

How the hell did Jon hold out for all those years! The twins were enough, he didn't want more, but she held out and she won! No wonder he went off the rails a bit. I am surprised he didn't lose it completely and end up a mental hospital for a while. What with her, TLC and the media, he must have thought he was losing his mind. I would have. If anyone deserves peace and harmony it's Jon. He had to heal himself before he could help those kids.

mama mia said...

What an easy job it must be managing Kate Gosselin. She has no special talent, other than annoying the heck out of people for refusing to educate herself and work hard, so all she really has to do is show up and be her annoying self. Served her well on Dancing with the Stars and this Marathon. No training, no hard work, and rules bent so her non qualifying finish time would still permit her to claim she ran a marathon. She didn't. She walked and jogged. Her time won't qualify her to run in any marathon she is not getting paid to pose as a celebrity. So sure Kate, if the lesson you want your kids to learn is that being the most annoying person in the room has perks too, go for it. Keep showing them they can wish, and will and pray for things instead of learning, working and giving back. Instead of couponing you should write a grifting blog entitled "How I take Credit For Things I Don't Really Do but Claim I Did Anyway". You can add NYT best selling author to that list.

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

Hence, knowing she wouldn't come in first at the marathon, she proclaimed herself a "winner" if she only finished. And then maybe cheated herself to the finish line. She's such a jerk.

Katie Cry-duh said...

I agree Kate lies all the time and stands her ground no matter what. She often answers questions in a forum where she can't be challenged (blog) and doesn't care that her lies are so obvious (only a tummy tuck, botox in a jar, had to be helped over the finish line, etc). She must be so screwed up to think people believe her just because they find challenging her pointless. How crazy to boast and accept money for a marathon you walked or worse yet, one you rode a scooter through

Mel said...

Word problem for the kids.

If mommy is running a 9mph pace and her two bff's are running a 6 mph pace, how do they obtain identical times. At 9 out of 10 checkpoints, down to 1/100th of a second?

denni don't like Kate..... said...

OK, now i'm dropping my subscription to the running magazine that will have a feature on Kate....they don't even deserve to be mentioned by name.....last night i watched the Biggest Loser and happened to notice that one of the competitors WON the marathon when they were at a heavier weight with a time a little over 5 minutes over Kates 4:59 "winning is finishing" time.......she's not intruding into the world of running......how i wish it was deep sea diving in the polar region! i'm so freakin' sick of her.....regular runners do it for fitness and personal achievement and fellowship with other regular runners.....not for personal promotion. YIKES!

Mel said...

Here's another one.

If you worked on 25 episodes at $250,000 per episode and there was 1 person working and 8 people playing, just in and out of the frame, what is your share?

Nothing! You weren't working. You were only playing. All those lines you learned and the do-overs?? Just playing. Trick's on you!

Did that tweeter say lipstick on a pig? No? Must have heard it wrong. Sorry.

Here's a comment from the Runner's World FB page:

XXXXXXX
It is my understanding that you have recently done a photo shoot with Kate Gosselin for your magazine. I have been a loyal reader for 4 years, and a subscriber as well. If RW wants to become US magazine that is fine, but at least have the courage to say so up front. Ms. Gosselin does NOT represent what I, or I believe so many of my fellow runners, believe in and go to RW to read about. Her selfish antics, desperation for attention, using running to keep herself in the spotlight all just make a mockery of what so many of us hold dear. In addition, there seems to be a strong case that this woman cheated during her first marathon at the LV Rock & Roll event a few weeks ago, and was taken by scooter to various points to promote herself and the race. If I do see her in any issue of RW, then I will immediately cancel my subscription. Hopefully the reports i have heard are wrong.

I think we are seeing Kate in her death throes as far as mainstream media is concerned. I believe her CC blog has been a huge fail--it's nothing but the same self-serving crap she puts on her website. And I also believe that she will have a hard time selling herself as a fitness guru, which appears to be where she's heading next.

Will be interesting to see what happens after the holidays.

On the Runners World forums people who were at the LV marathon said that Kate gave a little speech before the start. She said she trained "in subzero temperatures in PA". HAHA. What a joke! Someone from Vermont wrote that they don't even have subzero temps in Vermont, so how could PA have subzero temps? She is beyond ridiculous.

"Trained in subzero temperatures" BS!! I live in Ohio. Our weather is similar to PA. We get, maybe, 3 days each winter where the ambient temperature is below zero. In addition, we may get another 3 or 4 days where the wind chills are below zero. MAYBE she went outside and ran on one of those days. If she did, more fool her. What an liar!

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

She probably meant sub-freezing (below 32) temperatures. You know how she gets things mixed up. However, we do get sub-zero temperatures here, maybe once or twice a season, for only one or two nights. It happened last winter, but I doubt that she was running around at 2 a.m. She also could mean the windchills, which did fall below zero a few times last winter.
But, in Kate's case, it was just another one of her wild exaggerations.

chefsummer said...

How long will it take Kate to talk about Jon.? it's been a while since she kicked him under the bus. I bet her runner's leg is itching.

TLC stinks said...

OK. I get it. It was pre-planned for Runner's World to cover her at the Las Vegas Marathon. Explains the photographers. She didn't run this race for the kids.....she did it to get publicity and money. Do you wanna bet Runner's World picked up her and Steve's Las Vegas tab? And what is the connection between those two sisters that ran with her and Runner's World? Also explains that runner guy who paced her and the other guy that she hugged at the finish line. I thought I smelled a rat with all the attention she was getting. I'm thinking she wants to nab some type of athletic clothing endorsement? What a joke.

TLC stinks said...

Folks on Runners World forum did say Kate gave an interview prior to the race which aggravated people who just wanted to get things going. Also this comment:
There was a 4:30 limit for the full. They were giving folks the boot if they were not on pace. Pretty strict about it.
Kate finished in 4:59.

Preferential treatment?  

Pity Party said...

She managed to get a subliminal dig in against Jon on CC, of all things, "custody days to dodge," making it sound as though the kids were cringing in the basement at the thought of going to their dad's.

fidosmommy said...

Kate would have done better saying "custody days to consider" or "to work around". But that's not dramatic enough, is it? Dodging sounds like work.
Hard, hard work, and Jon's to blame for it.

PJ's momma said...

Food for thought: Remember Valerie Bertinelli ran her first marathon last year, when she turned 50? She ran Boston (they must make special concessions for celebrities because you are required to qualify, which she wouldn't have, with her times) AND she ran for charity. There were some nice articles about her afterward. Nobody doubted she did it. There was not one hint of scandal before, during, or afterward. She was so proud of herself, people were proud of her, and then the story just quietly faded away. Why? Because she's talented, gracious, cute, fun, and face it, in the eyes of many, America's sweetheart because of her long career and personality. I find that all so interesting in view of the backlash from everything Kate and her first event.

Westcoaster said...

So who thinks K8 will be as relevant in March as Runner's World apparentlly did for the LV marathon? Really glad the real runners are expressing opinions in blogs and on the FB page. No pap shots so guessing they came out to the house for Madame's photoshoot. Hope it did not interrupt her wrapping/baking marathons much. And yes, apparently the NYC talk shows were not waiting eagerly to book MsG after her big race in LV. March is a long winter away. She remains a grifting tool - how pathetic to allow these deluded teens to send her gifts, and from abroad, too.

PJ's momma said...

Great article by a 'true' celebrity - one with his head on tight and who helps others. One who makes GREAT time (1:58 for a half and less than 4:00 for an entire marathon).
