No follow-up specials for Kate Plus 8?

Kate tweeted today that she doesn't think any specials are going to happen.

 Kate Gosselin 

@ 
XXXX don't think there are going to b any ....:(



Although a network rep told People last August, "TLC hopes to check in with Kate and the family periodically with specials in the future," Kate doesn't sound very hopeful. Who put the kibosh on this one? Jon? TLC? The fiasco with Bill Blankinship?

She is obsessed with her haters. Most celebs just ignore them, truly ignore them. She says she does and talks a big game about it, but doesn't walk the walk.

amyf said...

First comment (?). Some people on some of the TV discussions go to such lengths to be the first to comment on a recap!

Anyway, while I wouldn't mind seeing a special on the kids every year or so, I can live without it as long as Kate gets it through her head that she can't always have things the way she wants them.

Marie said...

Is it possible Kate is so focused on her haters because that is the largest group left that pays Kate any real, however slight attention? At least in the most quantities that she is used to? I mean face it, there don't seem to be that many actual "fans," anymore. Aside from a few teenagers and really strange people I'm not sure I would qualify as "fans," to begin within.

Kate is going to latch onto whoever gives her that feeling she needs to prove them wrong.

Prove the fans wrong on things she has said that don't sound too good "mediocre" or whatever to twist them to make sense to the deluted sheeple who are left.

Or try and prove those who don't like her for obvious reasons they are wrong and that she is great just because she had 8 kids.

Look, Kate--in case you haven't noticed there are large families out there! You are not so special. Case in point:

Today, I was Christmas shopping for a party I had to go to, and today in the checkout line at Walmart, this elderly woman ahead of me who had a pile of gifts for kids spread out. The checker asked her what this wa all for, I guess in small talk. The lady said, "I have 23 grandchildren. They each get one gift from me. I love them all so much."

My jaw hit the floor. And being my nosy self over here I found myself asking her if she had that many grandchildren how many kids she has. She smiled and said, "I had 9 children." To make her case true she pulled out her wallet with this family snapshot of her and her husband with her 9 count 'em 9 adult kids, their spouses and ALL her grandchildren!

Guess what Kate, she isn't on TV. She doesn't live on a reality TV show salary. She's a retired librarian I happen to meet while Christmas shopping. Imagine that!

Marie said...

Just in case it sounds a bit weird, having large families is pretty common in Utah I have come to realize living here. Maybe I shouldn't have been all that surprised. But it's out there. I don't know why Kate think she is SO darn special. Just because she had them all at once.

My grandmother was one of 6 girls and my grandma was one of 8 kids. Looks like they all made it just fine.

But I think Kate likes to gloat this "8 kids thing," Isn't that all she is truly known for? MOm of 8? Wow, what a life ambision!

Post from Heather:

One of her tweets yesterday:
@ICYou1 no worries. I can't see their hate... I'm the fastest blocker ever :)

Then this one just a short time later:
@MiloandJack oh my... To be so bored and angry that u have to come up with creative lies... Like I said, first 26.2 was for them... Lol about 6 hours ago
************************************************

For someone who says she ignores the haters and blocks the negativity, she sure seems obsessed with them and she can't stop herself from tweeting about it. That's the narcissist in her.

I have long known she was a narcissist. One of the early warnings for me was she never accepted reponsibility for anything she did wrong. She always has an excuse (low blood sugar, being tired, etc) and/or someone else to blame. Jon was (and still is) the one she largely blames for her ridiculous behavior.

I don't know whether or not she ran the full marathon or not. It's certainly possible because she is a regular runner. You don't need a trainer to run one. I'm a runner and training for my first full and I'm using an app on my phone,
seeking advice from friends who have run one before and I'm also training with my step-daughter so we have each other for support. You can train alone though and for a narcissist like Kate, that's the only way she would train. She's not going to listen to anyone else because she knows better than anyone what to do. Running a full marathon is something thousands of people do all the time and can be achieved with training and preparation. The problem with Kate is because she is a narcissist, she's also a habitual liar so it's certainly possible she 'cheated' and is lying about running the full. From what I've read, the event was chaotic and disorganized and very understaffed so it would have been very easy to cheat and it not be noticed by officials.

I am of the opinion she did run the full. Her time was what I would have expected from her as well. I never believed her times she's been posting when she was training and there was no way to prove it. With a timed race, your true pace is revealed and her times were more in line with what I would have expected from her. Her completion time and pace are certainly admirable, but for a narcissist who likes to make themselves appear far better than they really are, I'm sure she was not pleased with her time.

@amyf
Why do you want to see a yearly special about these kids? Isn't the whole point of this blog to get them off of tv where they never should have been in the first place?

barbee said...

Why see the kids on a special? THEY are NOT special, some show even less than average appeal. SHE has kept them so regressed that they can't present anything of real interest. They are usually either ultra quiet or over the top in their actions, where's the interest in watching that? It is must preferable to watch well mannered intelligent children rather than unruly immature kids who at age 7 1/2 are still called 'the littles' by their mother figure. (just can't get myself to call her their mom)

Sheeple are Delusional said...

just wanted to know, the only people who care are Kate's "fans", who are so desperate to bring down people who tell the truth about Kate. Move on. :)

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

Thank the Lord that your kids have been liberated from doing future specials.

God is good.

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

Aww. This reminds me of my grandmother. She made sure that all of her grandchildren had a present. Most of the time, the girls only got a pair of stockings but it was a present. I didn't enjoy the stockings as a kid but as an adult, I appreciate what my dear grandmother did for us.

mama mia said...

My guess is Kate has another reality show in the works with Mark Burnett productions, hence the leak about her being at his house party. Celebrity news is always carefully manipulated, there is no genuine Kate sightings happening - look, she was just in a marathon with 70,000 people and complete silence on twitter and blogs, zero sightings/autographs reported.

And the good news for Kate with reality shows is no experience, talent or skills are required, lol

I must have missed this. Where was the story about a Kate/Mark Burnett connection?

roxyhelen said...

Umm, guys, no TLC specials doesn't necessary mean no filming the kids.What if she got a contract with another network? Jon did allow TLC to extend the kids' contract until Feb 2012.Either that or a judge actually told Kate film away! Which sounds more likely to you?Jon has been the better parent lately but that doesn't guarantee anything, in my opinion.

roxyhelen said...

I meant to write necessarily...

roxyhelen said...

barbee, what you said is basically insulting the kids and personally I feel it's wrong.You may think you're insulting Kate but the reality is you're badmouthing 7 year olds, the way I see it.

Shady CEO? said...

Sorry to continue the marathon discussion here but someone (Johnathan Sheets) on the RnRLasVegas FB page found some interesting information about the CEO Peter Englehart and his wife Janice's race times. Both finished at the same time, both finished first in their group, and somehow, he ended the race with her bib, and she with his. See

Kat said...

This has nothing to do with the kids...this is about HER! I can't say whats behind it but it definitely has to do with that greedy son of a bi#$%. When a contract is over...its over! They want nothing more to do with her and they know it...

Katie Cry-duh said...

I agree with Barbee, those kids are not special, just sad to watch. This is no insult to them; they just make me sad and uncomfortable to watch. I watched the RV trip on YouTube and was astounded how Kate barely interacted with them at all and how they all stood around silently as she behaved like a diva in an rv park in the middle of nowhere. It's painful to witness these kids having to endure life with their biological mom.

Kids behaving badly said...

Roxy,

The kids have been filmed behaving badly. That's a fact for all who watch to see with their own eyes. What we saw was the result of being raised by a narcissistic mother who neglects her kids emotionally and physically.

Two of the kids were EXPELLED from kindergarten for fighting and hitting kids and adults. This is not their fault.

I don't think Barbee meant to 'insult' the kids, but you cannot escape the facts.

It is most certainly the mother's fault as she has not been an attentive, loving or nurturing parent. This is not their fault.

In addition to that, there really isn't anything special about these eight children. The way their mother parades them around as her accomplishement precludes any of them from shining in their own right. This is not their fault.

There are many more children that age who behave well and have talent. These 8 kids have no talent as actors or models, cannot seem to behave kindly toward each other or other kids. This is not their fault.

While you may think Barbee's comments were insulting, I think she was spot on in her comment.

It's important to keep in mind that their behavior is a direct result of how their 'mother' raised them. Her fault, not theirs.

And to make sure there is no doubt, Jon will NEVER allow those kids to be filmed again. Never.

At this point any filming would be under a new contract. He will never agree. They have joint custody. Both parents must sign. He will not.

His 'ace in the hole', as it were, is a list of facts: the kids behavior on film, the Blankenship issue, the two kids being expelled.

Thank heavens they are safe from the abuse of filming and intrusion into their lives from now on.

Any BTW, I think it's HUGE that she twitted that she doesn't think there will be any specials. I would have expected her to lie and post some sly answer like "we'll have to see-eee", teasing her fans with the possibility even though she knows it will never happen.

Gosselin8ComeFirst said...

I don't think Jon will consent to any further filming of the kids. If he does, I will be surprised.

Appears Jon has moved on from filming his kids; Kate not so much. I do believe Kate would rather be doing her "own thing," away from her kids, if any media was interested, but don't put it past her to try to use her kids, if this will pay her. Should be interesting in the future, as the TLC contract will end, and I do not believe Jon will agree to more filming of his kids. AndI hope he stand firm on this.

Kate-Not sure why she is still getting any endorsements, but this will fade as well. With sporadic endorsements vs. regular pay from TLC to "pimp the kids," the gravy train with her not working will not last forever.

Kate- You were a Reality Star- it is over so please fade in to obscurity and take care of your kids,which was your mantra for being famous in the first place. Oh the irony!!

Katie Cry-duh said...

I agree that Jon won't allow filming in the future. This helps explain Kreider's continued venom towards him. She doesn't get it, its over. It would have been over long ago if she and her publicist hadn't force fed Kate to the public loooooong after her expiration date. Time to get a mediocre job, Kate. It's safe to say that cheating at marathons will not pay the bills for long.

Gift of grab said...

I think there have been enough questions raised now about the LV marathon (see discussion at Preesi's about Competitor Group CEO and his wife, very interesting) to place Kate's reported full participation in doubt. Bottom line, the only way it could be proven that she ran for the entire 5 hours is to have video of her running, every step of the way. In the absence of same, I guess I'd be willing to accept the results if she passed a polygraph, but that's never going to happen.

I will say that, if it is true that she was paid to be there, she was indisputably in league with the race managers, and her comment that "cheating is not tolerated" takes on a different cast. I don't believe her "finishing" was ever in any doubt, no matter how it was achieved. If she really and truly did it herself, then she should be proud. If she didn't, I doubt she would feel any shame in claiming that she did, because in her mind everything she does in terms of promoting herself is "working" to support her kids--i.e., it was "necessary." This is her justification for everything, no matter how low, no matter how untruthful, no matter how contrived.

She gives herself a lot of credit in thinking that ALL of her choices are the correct ones, and she doesn't look back. Must be nice to live with such certainty--however misplaced.

Yep, a parent is supposed to lead by example. Especially a parent whose entire fame was built on her as a mom and her kids interacting. Somewhere along the way, Kate became all about Kate. And the kids were a secondary concern to her fame.

She is barely around them now,has hired babysitters to watch them non-stop (WHY??????????)- there is no reason for this when she is home ever- SUPER MOM.

At this point, with all of Kate's self-absorbed behavior, babysitters even when she is home, I am very concerned what will become of these kids. Although I do NOT want to see themf filmed anymore. Kate is the consumate "absentee parent," even when she is there. How did it ever come to this? And why did she have 8 kids she never wanted to parent,other than on her "downtime," if that? Kate is a classice example of everything wrong with reality TV.

worth a thought said...

I had relatives who dumped their child in day care, even though the child clearly needed one-on-one attention, and there was no need for the sitter service.

The mother was an awful parent, disinterested and carelessly mean, and always avoiding any interaction with the child whenever she could, very obviously and cruelly.

Kind of like Mrs. Gosselin.

Father was clueless about children, and the child was his step-child. He wasn't interested, either.

One day I commented on the day care, which was huge, impersonal, and didn't seem to be doing the child any favors, to one of my parents, who said "isn't that child better off in day care than spending an extra sixty hours a week with his mother?"

Point taken. I've never forgotten that.

As sad as it is, the Gosselin kids may be much better off anywhere else than where their horrible, rejecting, nasty mother is. The underage, inexperienced "nannies" may be the least of their troubles.

Anonymous said...

Kate thinks she is the Queen of England. She thinks hiring nannies to raise her kids is allowed for a person of her status. Little does she know, her status isn't what she believes it to be. She is new money. Sociologists will tell you that new money is never accepted into the Upper-Upper class until the third generation. If there is any money left in the Gosselin clan by the time Kate's grandchildren come of age, THEY will be accepted as "old money." Kate is just a mediocre has-been who grew up in a trailer park.

Never, in my life, have I seen a mother who doesn't care to spend ANY time with her children. The only people who matter to her are Steve and her obsessed fans. She makes me sick!

Beth

Gosselin8ComeFirst said...

24- I totally agree with you.

I guess my point is that Kate admits she has babysitters 4 x a week while home! Never mind her Travel Time. The kids are not babies any more, but rather independant. so why does she need babysitters when she is home. She has made her fortune off being an "alleged "Super Mom" yet cannot manage her kids for a couple of hours per day when out of school for 4 hours per night at this age???. They are not babies.

Honestly, what exactly does she do as a parent other than bark orders? And alienate their own father? (Sounds likes she knows Jon can handle them fine, as he always did alone, but she can't. Animous much Kate? After Jon did all of the hard work for years, while you put the kids down for 4 hour naps daily to give yourself a break.

I honestly have no idea why this woman had 8 kids, and has tried to portray herself as a Supermom, when she has done as little work as possible. Jon did the volume of work, she later had him quit his JOB to help out at home, and was always relying on mutliple family members/friends/nannies/paid help to assist her.

This nobody is a farce and her kids deserved so much better! 8 Count 'Em 8 kids deserved their mother to at least try be a decent, non-self absorbed parent. But Kate's duties were all about being a star, and delegating out the butt, and doing as little parenting as possible. While finding plenty of time to bash their father, due to her own neglectful and or lazy parenting. Kate is one of the laziest, full of crap,selfish hypocrites I have ever seen in my life. Anyone who uses their kids to make a living for themselves is not really parent material in my mind.

For the attention, fame, potential freebies and potential money. Now that the well is running dry boy is she irritated. She honestly thought she could keep this up until they were 18, and even said so.

Okay, I am annoyed by Kate's horrbile parenting. I am also annoyed as I am a lousy typist but my key board is sticking, not working properly, and I have to keep separating my words after I type them. So worse than usual- sorry: (

______________________________

Agree w/ every single word you wrote. Read earlier this a.m. about the CEO and his wife. The whole thing was shady and disorganized and Kate had every opportunity to cheat.

Dallas Lady said...

I think it's ok to say I've never been particularly interested in the Gosselin kids. When the show first started, my daughter would channel surf past it and all I heard was screaming kids and crying. I wondered why anyone would WATCH that!

Then later, I'd catch it here and there (more to see if the poor beleaguered husband would EVER stand up to his horrible shrew of a wife) and I found the kids boring.

I'm glad there will not be any specials. I strongly suspected TLC just said that and we're actually ten kinds of through with her. Wouldn't you be?

Furthermore, I seriously doubt ANY show is in the works, either with her alone or with the kids. No one is interested. It's been four months since the TLC cancellation, which might as well be four years in TV time.

And thanks to two things, her history of blatant lying and the legitimate questions about this marathon, there's an asterisk by it now. Too bad, Kate.

I also agree she's paying more attention to the "haters" because they outnumber the fans ten to one. The WORST news for Kate, though, is that the haters and the fans both added together make up maybe 5% of the US population, if that.

Nobody Likes a Narcissist (NLAN) said...

I just checked out the marathon's Facebook page. It seems that people who are contacting the company directly are getting refunds because of all the problems. Many have been ill and are attributing it to the water given to runners.

On the issue of cheating, someone posted this on Facebook:


CEO Peter Englehart, please respond to this.
FYI everyone. Go to the results page and look up the results for Bib #41011 and 41012. Peter and his wife “ran” a GREAT half marathon. They both placed first in their age groups. Also be sure to check out their super cute finisher photos. Does that look like a man that just ran a 1:25 half marathon?

OvrPl SexPl DivPl Bib First Name Last Name City State Chip Time
187 35 1 41011 Janice Englehart San Diego CA 01:25:16
188 153 1 41012 Peter Englehart San Diego CA 01:25:16

Then go to Athlinks, and check out his previous pace for recent races. It is AMAZING how his pace has improved in just one short month. I want to know who his coach is! Sign me up. :)
http://athlinks.com/search/athlete/Peter%20Englehart

Why in the world was he running this race in the first place instead of ensuring it was actually run well? I would be fuming if I was 2nd place in either of those Age groups. This is just another example of how far Competitor is removed from caring about the athletes that pay their salary.

PatK said...

I apologize to whomever this offends, but I'm in the camp of those who think the Gosselin kids are not interesting and that they are over the top in their behavior on camera. It's not their fault, however. That behavior was allowed (and probably encouraged) for the cameras as a "cute" factor, and now the damage is done. I think the two who who acted out in school prove that.

Those kids needed(and still need)parenting. They don't need a mother who thinks only of herself. She really dropped the ball as a parent. I for one am GLAD I don't "walk in her shoes".

Dwindle said...

I do agree with Barbee's post and like Kids Behaving Badly said, this is not their fault. However, they are now at the age where they are witnessing other examples of behavior displayed by other children, and they can start choosing their own actions.

They were never taught, encouraged, allowed to play or think alone, as individuals. For one child to occupy itself, mentally or physically. on it's own. No effort was ever made, that we could see, to allow and foster this. Even the little homemade video she made to shop around ("as you can see, it isnt very glamorous...") had the 6 of them as infants crawling around in a makeshift pen all together. Other than the endless hours they each spent left in their cribs with nothing but a blanket each, they never were allowed quiet private time with books, puzzles, dollies, etc. All she has ever done is pen them up together and let them hit each other. They dont know anything else.

They have no film-able talents. None at all. Zero. 2 or 3 of them have cute faces, the rest are very average. It is very clear that when all of this started, Kate thought she was very special for carrying 6 fetuses. She still does. Then she got very accustomed to the TLC money and pampering. She still is. But somewhere very early on, someone from TLC kept telling Kate how adorable she was, how talented she was, what a draw she was, that she had been 'discovered'. She fell for it and never looked back. You add all that to her ENORMOUS sense of entitlement and her pathological anger issues and what you get are 8 kids that are textbook dysfuntional in the making, for all the world to watch.

Gosselin8ComeFirst said...

Judy and Dallas Lady- The good news is Kate is planning another marathon soon, according to her tweets, so maybe some astute marathon watchers/reporters will be able to capture some of her antics on film this time, if the reports of cheating are true.

chefsummer said...

The only way I would watch the 8 in any upcoming future epi's with TLC .Would be them being away from Kate them with Jon being happy kids/teens.

Or them being happy them seleve doing what makes them happy and not what makes their so called mother happy.

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

I so agree with this, PatK. Not only was it played up for the 'cute factor', I firmly believe it was also played up to show how stressed poor widdle Katie Irene was, how much she had on her plate. That is why there are sheeple; they fell for it and still do.

Allison J. said...

For the poster upthread that claimed positively that Jon would NEVER let the kids film again, how can you really positively know this. While I am and have always been a fan of Jon, I don't think any of us know what he would positively do in any given situation. He gave in once before and allowed them to film. It was very disappointing to see him do that for whatever his reasons were. I just don't think any of us can say what he might and might not do in the future. For some reason, Kate always seems to get her way.

In the Neighborhood said...

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

Kate did not grow up in a trailer park. She never lived in a trailer park. I wish that rumor could be put to rest. Thanks to the erroneous television bio story (and photos) that didn't bother to do any fact-checking, that story was spread as gospel. It just isn't true.

Nobody Likes a Narcissist (NLAN) said...

Sorry to have posted that before reading the comments in this post. I see the topic of the Engleharts' times has already been posted here and at Preesi's. Very interesting. I've read over and over again that this marathon was just about making millions of dollars, and getting as much publicity as possible. I think the chances are good that a lot of stunts were pulled.

cathyn518 said...

I agree with what Barbee said about the Gosselin children. They are uncomfortable to watch due to their behavior and emotional outbursts. No one is blaming the children and I think most people on this blog hold Kate accountable for their distress. I tried to watch the RV episode and found it cringe-worthy. I also agree with those that say Jon won't allow the children to be filmed in the future.

Gosselin8ComeFirst said...

39- I agree. Sounds like VIPs/sponsored runners for marathon were given carte blanche to do ..whatever they wanted with no system in place to check/challenge any of their results.

Kat said...

These are not the actions of a woman who's well is running dry....The only thing she's got to keep her busy is plotting her next trip...

Gosselin8ComeFirst said...

No offense, but one can grow up in a very low/middle/high income area, and if the parent does not do the work,kids are left to their own devices of what is right/wrong, how to cope, etc... so I do agree, it is more about the work the parents put in to shaping and molding proper behaviors and supporting individal needs. I will also say that once a school draws attention to severe problems, the parents have been put on notice. Never mind any other behavioral problems that did not make it to press or tv.
I will also add that if divorced parents are not on the same page, small problems can become much bigger as kids are getting mixed messages, especially when one uninvolved parent says," Ignore Daddy." Kate said this on film.

roxyhelen said...

We are blaming Kate for discussing their issues in public but this is just as wrong.Badmouthing kids, however true or not is ugly and I never thought this blog will allow it.I will not be a part of this.Besides, the kids are not being filmed any more and that website is no big deal so any other discussions are beating a dead horse and criticizing Kate either for the same things over and over or for pointless things(marathons, clothes,make-up, vocabulary). I like to think we helped get the kids off air but now that is done(at least for now) I see no point in continuing.I've been thinking of this for a while.

It was nice talking to you all,you are civilized and educated people and I have enjoyed coming here.

Anonymous 25 --1). There's nothing wrong with growing up in a trailer park. Some of the finest people I know live in trailer parks. I've lived in "trailer parks" most of my adult life. My neighbors include a couple of nurses, a school teacher, a sheriff's deputy, a highway patrol officer and several factory workers. I'm a retired government employee. We work hard, contribute to our community, care about our neighbors and try to raise our children to be good people and good citizens. 2). Kate didn't grow up in a trailer park. She grew up in a brick farm house. You can find pix online if you look for them. Her parents own a camp ground. That's where the story got started about Kate growing up in a trailer park.

I disagree with y'all who think the G8 are ordinary, untalented, unattractive, etc. Several of the girls are going to be beauties. The boys are all cute. Mady has some musical talent. How much remains to be seen. Cara is a talented athlete. Do I want to watch them on TV? No. I don't get off on watching children bein bullied, abused and tormented by their "mother".

Jon didn't "give in" and allow the kids to be filmed again. He lost a court case. He didn't have much choice in the matter. Time and again, he's tried to stop the exploitation of the kids, to no avail. I don't think he'll allow them to be filmed again any time soon.

Sorry for the soapbox. Guess I'm feeling cranky today. I really enjoy reading this blog and the variety of posts we get here. There is always an interesting viewpoint to think about and debate.

"I apologize to whomever this offends, but I'm in the camp of those who think the Gosselin kids are not interesting and that they are over the top in their behavior on camera"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I could not stand more then a min or two of Kate Plus 8. There was way too much screaming. Kate encouraged the screaming and even screamed herself. She never taught her children more constructive ways to express their emotions. They screamed when they were happy and they screamed when they were upset. I think that they also screamed in an effort to get the attention that they craved.

Dallas Lady said...

Look, the kids were sold as entertainment. That was wrong and we all agree that was wrong. I don't think ANY kids should be on reality TV, showing their real actual lives. There are laws in place protecting child ACTORS, but not enough to protect their real lives being filmed and sold as entertainment.

However, because the kids were sold to me as entertainment, I'm ok with saying I didn't find them entertaining. People "said" that all the time by not tuning in, resulting in cancellation.

No one here is insulting the kids' appearance or anything. I'm saying I never found them to be interesting. If I wanted to see kid chaos and hear screaming and watch kids bouncing all over the place, I'd work at a local daycare. Shrug.

Moving on from that topic now, because I think it's a straw man, anyway. No one is even remotely attacking the kids, and I have never seen that here, ever. If I did, I'd leave.

The only reason I'm even paying any attention to Kate the Human Train Wreck at this point is to see just how many ways she can figure out to run from the kids who once made her so much money.

Dmasy said...

Dallas Lady (48) -- You got it!

I am at an age where I am mostly neutral to kids I am not related to. I have a "nice" face that allows me to respond with friendly and kind when I need to. I would ignore a screaming and unpleasant child whenever I am exposed to one. Those children are NOT entertaining.

Kate told her kids not to scream or yell -- then she is shrill. She tells her boys to man up -- then she puddles into exhaustion or fear.

They are too young now to untangle her conflicting commands. Some of them will rebel. Some will comply. Time will sort that out.

In the meantime, I am not interested in watching.

chefsummer said...

We think Kate is pimping the kids now just...wait till she has grandkids or the kids get married.

Katie Cry-duh said...

To that winner Kreider, I say have at it, bitch! You now get to keep up the additional facade of being a marathon runner. Maybe you'll get comped for another marathon, probably not. But even if competitor group sponsors you, it won't be often and you still need to find a real mediocre job or cut expenses or go broke. It's really simple and with 8 kids you don't have the luxury of picking and choosing and people aren't responding to your begging anymore. But until then, keep pretending you're a serious runner. At least you have to put in some work for once

Katie Cry-duh said...

Chef, I seriously doubt that the kids will have much to do with Kate by the time they get married and have kids. And I hope they make it to adulthood with the chance of happiness and not buried by addiction or depression

He will never again sign contract said...

Alison,

Jon will never agree to the kids being filmed again. I know this.

When he 'gave in before' he was under contract and legally coerced into stepping aside so the show could go on. TLC and the wife aligned against him and made his life hell for 'backing out'.

In addition, the wife and kids (as was Jon) were still under contract and that is the reason the judge allowed the kids to continue on the show. Jon tried mightily to get their contract set aside and to prevent them from traveling to Australia. The judge specifically allowed the mother to take them against Jon's wishes because there was a contract in place.

Just as I know the sun will come up tomorrow, I know that Jon will never agree to sign a NEW contract allowing the kids to be filmed. Most readers here know the same thing.

If there was ever, ever any doubt, the Blankenship thing sealed it. Jon has always felt badly that the kids were on display for pedophiles everywhere. He voiced that concern long, long ago. He has felt the kids were exploited from early on and regretted the decision to film them. This regret and his actions to change things is what caused the divorce.

The difference NOW, is that Jon cannot be coerced by TLC as the contract is done. He got squeezed by the balls, and there was some discussion that TLC even paid him to shut up and go away for the duration of the contract. They certainly muzzled him with threats of lawsuits if he kept having press conferences.

They also squeezed him by making it impossible for him to get any other high profile jobs during the time the contract had to run which lends credence to the idea they were still paying him something.

He is now free of TLC coercion and will NEVER sign another contract to let the kids be exploited.

He saw the light. She didn't.

And I am sure, like some other poster said, that is the reason she continues to be pissed with him. In her mind, "he ruined her life".

If you need any more proof, surf back to see his press conferences, his twitters and his interviews. He has said repeatedly that he will NEVER again sign a contract for the kids to be exploited.

His heals are dug in for the good of his children.

When Kate Gosselin stops selling herself as the Saint Mother and the media sees her for the loser she is,and stops promoting her,I'll wait it out.

She is obsessed with her haters. Most celebs just ignore them, truly ignore them. She says she does and talks a big game about it, but doesn't walk the walk.

December 7, 2011 11:44 PM


She knows she would be a nobody....loooong gone from tv by now....if it weren't for us calling her out on her crap all the time.

She loves us because we keep her from going down the toilet bowl.

You will notice that every single time she slips further into celebrity oblivion, she will pull a stunt designed ( master baited ) to get us talking. And that gets her back in the media and tv interviews so she can "set the record straight".

She was even thoughtful enough to run a marathon just for us. She loves us. She wouldn't have half the things she has if it weren't for the sayers of nay.

Here Here {clapping} and a big Meeeee tooooooo!

I stay tuned simply so I can witness the great fall. She deserves NOTHING that she has been given. Nothing! She struts around with this air of attitude that she has earned everything she has.
Ha!
I have a hard time seeing some sweet women out there suffering {grieving} from infertility, and then this twat is blessed with 8 and can't stand to be around them because she wants to be a celebrity living the high life.

Pity Party said...

I, too, think the kids are special (as are all kids - we just happen to have seen these on TV for years). They are the reason Gosselin is a household name but to hear it from KT, only she is a household name. The kids are now the by-product of a bitter divorce and bad to little if any parenting from the KT, who is for the first time ever their primary caretaker. The kids have gone in the direction that she has led them and it is not pretty. Even now most of the gifts that come her way are for the kids - save the few diehards that are helping her along right now by the power of suggestion. Want attention - send a GIFT CARD for KT - they know the drill. Sadly, things have taken such a sour note post divorce that no one wants to see them on TV anymore because it is very sad what their little lives have become. I hope it changes for them some day and they have peace and happiness. I will miss seeing them grow up and am still angry at KT for screwing that up. Who wants to watch kids be mistreated. KT will continue to scratch and claw out a place for herself in the public eye because once you get a taste of the good life (especially someone like her) you do not give it up, easily.

On another note - does RD have good hair? I see tension on the horizon in that regard.

@amyf
Why do you want to see a yearly special about these kids? Isn't the whole point of this blog to get them off of tv where they never should have been in the first place?
December 8, 2011 2:37 AM
-------------------------------------------
I'm not even really a kid person but I was intrigued at first and saw enough of them to become kind of attached. I'd like to know that at least some of them end up OK despite what Kate's done to them. I'm also fine with not finding out. I agree with you, there's no doubt they shouldn't have gone through all this in the first place.

Gosselin8ComeFirst said...

53-I agree- Jon is done with the exploitation of his kids. Kate will never stop trying to exploit them as she knows she is nothing without them.

But Jon does have a say at this point and with Blankenship, I agree, kids are NOT going to be filmed again any time soon.

Honestly, I think everyone has reached their saturation point with Kate, with her constant antics to stay relevant and create, yet, more controversary. She is one exhausting person to read about, let alone stomache, with all of her long-term self-absorbed, suspect antics.

I am actually starting to think the kids are better off with her NOT there, as her behavior is becoming more and more disturbing by the day. We all know the kids deserve much better,but not sure it is ever going to happen any time soon, as Kate is a pitbull who will go out kicking.

JudyK said...

KmartSmart...You are right...she deserves NOTHING that she has been given.

OT to Pity Party: Who is RD? I'm lost.

Beth said...

Readerlady, I have lived in trailer parks myself. I wasn't denigrating the people who do. My point is, a person who is as high-status as Kate THINKS she is doesn't ordinarily live in trailer parks. I didn't mean to offend. :)

OCTOMOM Scores 6-Figure Deal for New Web Show

File this under WTF -- someone is actually paying Nadya Suleman A TON OF MONEY for parenting advice ... seriously.

TMZ has learned OctoMom just locked down a 6-figure deal to star in her own Internet show on Ustream.

We're told Nadya will stream the show live from her home every Sunday ... talking about subjects like, "Parenting, fitness, diet, nutrition, shopping on a budget and all those crazy rumors."

The show is set to launch later this month -- no word on who's gonna watch the kids while mommy goes to work.

Julianna said...

Jon will never agree to the kids being filmed again. I know this.

Have you talked to him about this?

Gosselin8ComeFirst said...

Beth- You are a great, fair and grounded poster so I got your point. No need for apologies. I think you were discussing Kate's brand of parenting and thinking. She is millionaire with no class, morals,or ethics when it comes to her kids and parenting.

Again, I think many of us of us have reached a saturation point with this repugnant person,who still has not disappeared. Here's to 2012..... we can only hope and vent our frustations with this nut!!! :)

Warmth Of The Sun said...

From Kate's blog...

One of the first times I said it out loud “I am running my first full marathon” was in October during a speech I gave at a college near Pittsburgh.

__________

Um, Kate, the speech was on November 3. I guess when you're on the go so much, it's tough to know what month you were where! If you don't remember, in order to be credible, you could use the internet to google yourself.

gramof5 said...

@64 ~ I agree with wanting sissy pants boy to take that ride with her. They truly deserve each other and maybe by now, Jon is actually thanking him for taking the sick abuser off his hands.
It's just a shame that the kids had to be left behind in the isolated gated orphanage to be raised by the paid help.
I don't think their future is very promising.

Westcoaster said...

So the woman who spends as much time away from physically parenting her children as possible has titled her new blog post Marathon Momma. Not going to read it but I'm sure someone will provide highlights later. She really is an odd person - making her way in the world as "Mom" but truly doing everything but that job. Who will she be when those kids are grown and gone, or even just gone? Years pass quickly. And didn't she run that race for her non-believer haterz. Now she's Marathon Momma - crazy, creepy and totally in her own world.

Gosselin8ComeFirst said...

68- WOW- Anyone is film/media worthy these days!

Marie said...

So what is Kate going to hold out for now? Back when she said "You'll see me (pause) you'll see my kids on TV soon." I mean her holding out for specials or something to come along is so over!

I guess it's time to go look for a real 9-5 job Kate. That blogging job cannot pay all that well. Go back nursing. Surely if you weren't so lazy you'd be able to make it work. Or, if that no longer suits your fancy, McDonald's is always hiring. Since you're a great cook you can go flip burgers. Or if it's money you crave to handle you can work as a cashier!

Gift of grab said...

He will never sign (53), thanks for your post. Sounds like you know what you're talking about, and it's just as many of us had surmised.

Jane (65), REALLY? Can you hear Kate now, on the phone with Julie Carson May, saying, SHE gets a 6-figure talk show and I have to run MARATHONS?!!!??

And Warmth of the Sun--hysterical! This is why she needs to post her "events" on her site. On the other hand, the date of her Australia Zoo appearance is STILL wrong to this day (it was 11/15, not 11/16).

TotallyDisgusted said...

Gotta say that if there were medals given out for creative lies, Kate would win first place.

tate said...

I think someone else wrote the Marathon Momma post. There are far fewer explanation points than in previous posts and it is just too well written. It doesn't even sound like Kate.

JudyK said...

FROM KATE'S BLOG: "Finally dressed, it was time to go! I had my lightly broken in running shoes on, my caffeine beans in my pocket, my phone (for music) and earphones, gloves, lipstick (Ellen told me I’d need to apply some before crossing the finish line, lol, and I did!) and I was ready!"
___________________________________

Okay, first of all, it is readily apparent that Kate wrote this blog ALL BY HERSELF...which, Kate, is NOT a compliment. It is the most rambling, disjointed, contradictory, poorly-written, all-over-the place piece of junk I've just about ever read.

I'm going to make only one comment and leave this to others to dissect...and, believe me, there is MUCH to dissect, but I'm tired.

Here's my one comment: You were told to take lipstick to apply before you crossed the Finish Line...really, Kate, really? NO WORDS...just NO WORDS, and, frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn to find the words, because you simply are not worth the energy. PATHETIC BEYOND BELIEF. YOU ARE A F------ LIAR, and you aren't even good at lying.

JudyK said...

Just one last comment: She said she had ear phones on, yet she talks about communicating with people who were addressing her during the run about whether or not she was going to actually finish the run.

Gift of grab said...

Just read her latest over at Preesi's. Blech. She is such a poor writer, so overwrought, so grammatically pretzeled. And so much of what she says just doesn't ring true.

She talks about running the whole marathon with BOTH Paula and Ellen. Could she really be unaware of the whole issue with Ellen, who, based on her chip record, appeared to start the full marathon and somehow came over the finish line as a half-marathoner? Even though her photo shows her finishing on the marathon side?

JudyK said...

Gift of Grab...Yes, as I mentioned, there is MUCH to dissect. She's going to hang herself, and I can't wait.

Aeris said...

I guess it's time to go look for a real 9-5 job Kate. That blogging job cannot pay all that well. Go back nursing.....

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

ITA, Marie, but I think Khate is holding out for a few paying gigs to get her by for at least one more year. As a nurse with her level of experience, I'm guessing she could earn between $50-70K in one year's pay. Khate could earn that much with just a few appearances/endorsements. She's still testing the waters to see where she can make a few easy bucks. I don't see her returning to nursing for another full year. By that point, all her opportunites will have dried up. The lack of TV specials on the kids will speed up the process. I can't believe her final 15 minute of fame has been going for nearly three years! I'd like to witness the fall, like many others here have said.

Warmth of the Sun, that cracked me up about Khate "Googling" herself to see where she was. It also reminded me of when Khate made that comment, probably back in 2009 when she and Jon were in all the tabloids. She said something how she could or did read the tabloids to know what she was doing from day to day.

My best wishes go out to Hippie Chick for a speedy recovery. We are the same age and it hurts me to know how much pain she's gone through, relatively early in life. Get well, HC!

barbee said...

RoxyHelen: my comments through these long years have always been that SHE was holding the kids back, NOT teaching them ANYTHING, they are no different than any other kids so WHY should THEY keep being given things, trips, rewards, prizes when there are MANY kids who have nothing, MANY kids who have a parent serving overseas, MANY kids who are not being raised in an 'entitled' environment who would truly appreciate getting ONE thing rather than lavishing everything on 8 kids from a family that was paid MORE than enough to shower them with things.

chefsummer said...

Kate going back to nursing I just don't see it. She will do any and eveything not to go back to nursing.

PJ's momma said...

I read the blog and she lies yet again! She talks about running a 9-minute-mile pace, where the chip data shows they NEVER ran that fast, not even averaged out the first 6 miles! And she says she got a burst of energy at the end and left the other ladies behind - and they clearly finished together. The chip data AND photographers prove it. Aye aye aye. She just can't help herself!

Katie Cry-duh said...

The blog post...aaack. I think she wrote it because of the mememe aspect, the inconsistencies, the over explaining and the word uncountable again. It just doesn't ring true, no spontaneity and genuine tone to her writing. No post race euphoria? Does she really think Rod Dixon will risk his reputation and endorsements by associating with an alleged cheat and confirmed liar in the future? What a loser to brag before and after about this alleged accomplishment! IMO if she had run a clean race, there wouldn't be all these red flags and speculation. If she had just run the half for real like the lumbering sloth that she is, I'd give her props. This bullshit? For shame. And gloating and lying about it? Even worse

From Kate's latest blog:
We traded contact information .....Two weeks later, I did my first 20 miler in 3:40. And then I received the emails I’d been hoping for: Paula and Ellen had made plans to come to Vegas and run alongside of me!

Julianna 66,

Yes, I have.

Done and done said...

Regarding the kids; I don't know if they are special or not. Some of them may be, but I stopped watching the show long ago, and it seems like the focus of the show was on Kate anyway. I guess I just don't agree with this idea of every child being a special snowflake, and I actually work with kids. If every kid is special, then is every adult special too? If everyone is special, then doesn't that defy the meaning of the word "special"? Or is there some magic age where people stop being inherantly special? I guess that whole pholosophy just irks me, can you tell? ;)

As for Kates big fall, that's why I stick around too. I keep hoping that something says or does will draw some actual bad media hype and everyone will finally stop being fake nice in those phony interviews. The fact is, those interviews are just that - phony. I think what we are seeing is her fizzle from national attention. As much as I want the axe to fall (figuratively, not literally sheeple!)I don't think it will happen. Who, besides the haters and sheeple, really give a crap about this bitch anymore?

Kids Behaving Badly 19: Any BTW, I think it's HUGE that she twitted that she doesn't think there will be any specials. I would have expected her to lie and post some sly answer like "we'll have to see-eee", teasing her fans with the possibility even though she knows it will never happen.

****

Actually, it's not very out of character for her at all. When she knows something isn't going to happen, she's pretty definite in her response. Honestly, I don't think Kate minds all that much. I believe she enjoys not having to share the spotlight with the kids. JMO.

And I'm not sure who said it, but I agree, the kids are probably better off the less time they spend around her. They have a rhythm and a routine to their lives at this point - mom leaves for weeks, babysitters are here, weekends with Dad - and they're probably comfortable with it. I have to imagine that life is pretty stressful when Kate's around, so they probably welcome the peace and quiet. Again, JMO. It's all speculation, after all.

You have stated time and again that you would continue to have children until God made it clear you should stop. I think, with the issues with Josie and now with this loss, He's telling you 19 is enough.

I agree Pity Party, and how often does the beholder think everyone is beautiful? Some posters were saying they don't think the kids are special, another said they are all special because every child is special. I'm just saying that when we assign words like special, unique and beautiful to everyone those words lose meaning. I hope that makes sense.

Nobody Likes a Narcissist (NLAN) said...

A lot of the real runners are very ticked off over the latest development that it looks like the CEO and his wife cheated in the half marathon. They've been posting information on the marathon's Facebook page as well as a page that they set up to complain about all the problems with this marathon.

So, for anyone who was incredulous that Khate and her two new running buddies could somehow have had help cheating in this race, now that there are glaring inconsistencies with the CEO and his wife's times, it all seems more possible, doesn't it?

It's quite interesting that now that their results have been questioned, they *poof* disappeared from the search results. But, nah, those chips are just so accurate, no one could play games like that, right? Yeah, sure.

On Facebook, they have screen shots of it all:

http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.256884707706211.62927.255718487822833&type=1

As best as we can tell, Mr. & Mrs. Englehart's results have been removed from the RnR-LV's searchable results. Peter Englehart is the CEO of Competitor Group. He and his wife ran the half-marathon together. Mrs. Englehart's reported finish time is only ten minutes shy of the world record for a woman of her age. They averaged 6:31 pace. Very impressive. Both also finished in the top of their age groups. But now their results have been removed, and we would like to know why. And more importantly, if their results are not valid, have the right age group winners been informed? We hope someone from Competitor/RnR will provide answers. If Mr. & Mrs. Englehart didn't complete the course (cheated) then shame on them.

Quicksand.... maybe Kate can be a comedian in her next life....

"She talks about running the whole marathon with BOTH Paula and Ellen. Could she really be unaware of the whole issue with Ellen, who, based on her chip record, appeared to start the full marathon and somehow came over the finish line as a half-marathoner? Even though her photo shows her finishing on the marathon side?"

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

I would bet everything that I own that Kate was wearing Ellen's chip.

Beth- You are a great, fair and grounded poster so I got your point. No need for apologies. I think you were discussing Kate's brand of parenting and thinking. She is millionaire with no class, morals,or ethics when it comes to her kids and parenting.

Why does Kate have to prove everything to other's and to herself all the time? I understand having to prove things to other's if you're a narcassist to prove them wrong...but to yourself? I get once in a while to prove to yourself you can do somethings but it seems that Kate spends so much of her time trying to prove things to herself. Is she that self-obsessed? It just kind of strikes me as odd that's all.

Kids are kids no matter how you put it, cute, special, they all have good qualities and I think that's what one needs to look at. Special is as special does perhaps. Kate's kids only have gotten more because their mom put them on TV. That was her plan to begin with.

Kate got what she got, and unlike her kids, she got upset now that she can't get it anymore. Her fix was being in the limelight and like any ole junky she's upset she can't get much of a fix these days. It's funny...she preaches to her kids that you get what you get and you don't get upset but with her it's okay to lash out, blame others belittle Jon when things don't go the way she wanted them to. Makes no sense to me.

NJ, it used to be when a sheeple would see the light and walk the plank they would be very open about it and proudly convert. But the past year or so I think it's become embarrassing to the sheeple who finally see the light to admit they were wrong. Because it's just been SOO long and frankly, took them too long to realize and they feel embarrassed. Lately, when a sheeple defects, they do so very quietly and calmly, they don't show up here or elsewhere, they just quietly disappear. I suspect that's what usually happens to most of them who disappear.

That blog was LONG (and boring). Can you even imagine reading that to eight kids at dinner? Holy crap, she's unbelievable with the ME, ME, ME routine. These poor kids, they should all be excitedly talking about what THEY did today and while she was gone. Dinner time is about THEIR lives and time for them to tell their parents what's going on with them. Especially, seven year olds; most of them still like to share every detail of THEIR day.

I still can't believe that she has eight kids and spends NO time helping them pursue their interests. You'd think she'd be driving them to practices and games, music lessons, etc. and cheering them on. I do not know a parent with kids those ages who doesn't have their kids in some activities. These years are supposed to be all about the KIDS. She's such an a-hole, I really can't stand her. She makes me feel like puking (in her face, lol).

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Normal parents not as self absorbed as Kate wouldn't be talking about themselves this much unless the kids honestly ask. They should be asking what the KIDS did today.

On the off chance the kids ask what you did Mommy? Then it's appropriate to briefly explain well Mommy wrote a blog today/Mommy got paid for someone else to write her blog today. Know what a blog is? Well it's kind of like a diary or journal and you write it about things you're doing or interested in for your friends and in my case my haters. What do YOU like to write about kiddos? What would YOUR blog be about? Conversation goes back to the kids.

End of freaking story.

Kate, I think you are a horrible mother and lack the ability to be a good mother to your eight (yes, 8) children.

To prove me wrong would require commitment and selflessness that I do not believe that you are capable of. I AM A NONBELIEVER who doesn't care about a marathon.

Katie Cry-duh said...

So, I can just picture that dinner table of doom: Kate eating a salad and rice cake with nutella and the kids eating a tiny piece of meat with four pounds of cheese drowning it. Wooden smiles from the bored and nervous tups pretending to give a shit or suffer the grinch's wrath. Twins rolling their eyes, elbowing each other and Mady sneering, "Mom, did you cheat?". All 8 wondering why she was gone for a week for a 5 hour race/scooter ride and why she has allegedly limited them each to one present each as she talks about her travels. They must be grossed out by her freaky frozen face as she blathers on and on about eating donuts and meeting an Olympian.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Also, even assuming the kids have an unhealthy fascination with everything she wants to do and all her hopes and dreams and have consumed themselves with supporting her, why is she constantly telling us about it? Doesn't she get embarrassed by all the fawning? Doesn't she think kids should develop some interests outside of making Mommy feel like a queen? Even if true, It's just weird.

Katie cry-duh said...

I don't think the kids have much to discuss with mommy. Doesn't sound like they get out much and when they're home they're plugged into tv and Nintendo DS, if the rv trip was any indication. Plus they're busy with eating dinner, having Mady bathe them and getting into bed by 7:30. Prisoners

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Well, Kate should be congratulated. I was one of the few who kept saying there are reasonable explanations for all the fishy things about her marathon. But now that she's written that blog post full of lies, especially the part about the nine minute mile the first half of the race, now I'm questioning it.

It was only a nine minute mile at the 10k, and even then it was 9:58, might as well call it 10. The rest of the half was a clear 10 and a half mile. Why lie when we can see the numbers right there?

Also, I find myself offended by a "college near Pittsburgh." It's Penn State. Say it, you had no problem saying it before. She had nothing to do with what happened, Penn State Fayette had nothing to do with it, it was a small group of people who f-ed up and that school does not deserve to be treated like folks are ashamed of it.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I think likely the kids spend the bulk of their time at school and with the nanny, and probably only see Kate at dinner. This was very typical when I was a nanny, kids would see their parents at dinner, if they were even home, and that's it. I would even tuck them in. You get used to the dysfunction and the kids bond with you just like they do their parents.

The kids probably know to just tell her how wonderful she is for those 20 minutes a day over dinner, it's easier that way. Then when they're back with the nanny they can go back to the world being about them again.

It's interesting she says Mady is her biggest supporter. Of course she is, Mady has her all figured out. She knows how to appease Kate and get Kate off her back.

Chefsummer, it's amazing what kids can get used to, and it's also amazing what a difference just a few really caring adults can do for kids. It can never make up for Mommy or Daddy, but it sure as heck helps. These kids will have mommy issues but there's a good possibility Jon and other positive people in their lives are going to be huge mitigating factors.

_____________________________________________

Wow Kate, what a difference 7 years makes.

As a Central PA resident and taxpaying citizen, I clearly remember the community not just "doubting" you but we were BEGGING and PLEADING for you to shut up. To just shut up, go away and raise the eight children you brought into this world through fertility treatments YOU sought. Newspaper blogs and article comments numbered in the literal thousands when you appealed twice to keep your Medicaid taxpayer funded babysitter.... errr.. I mean nurse, when the state found your babies to no longer need preemie care. Why didn't that viceral outcry make you even more "motivated" to raise, care for and financially support your children on your own? Without "prayer lists" and emails with your utilty accounts and mortgage holder account. Without begging and whining on the sixgosselins website of gimmee. Without exploiting your children on a reality show.

It almost seems like the tremendous criticism during that time made you "motivated" alright. It seems like the more people ranted and raved for you to support your own damn kids, the more "motivated" you became to find a way to do no such thing. And that way was TLC.

Your motivation is also awful selective. We've been "doubting" for a long time that you can maintain the Konpound very long without a TLC paycheck. Apparently, you're not going anywhere and are seemingly going to stay in your status symbol until you run out of money and the bank takes it. What a waste when you can be taking steps now to preserve your nest egg. We've been "doubting" that you are able to stay off an airplane for more than a month. Lately, you've been unable to stay home for more than two weeks. Your kids need you more than you need to be trying to resuscitate your 15 minutes. Prove we "doubters" wrong and "motivate" yourself to be a hands-on mom instead of repeatedly leaving them with the nanny of the week. We have been doubting that you are able to appear on television without trashing the father of your children. And you sure haven't let our doubts deter you from doing just that. You have found a new 'career' as a long distance runner- great. We doubt that you are in this for the actual running. In fact we think that this is just another excuse for you to get on a plane with Purseboy/Boobyguard and fly far, far away from your kids. To go to any race where they may stick a microphone in your face or take a picture. Prove us wrong and let our doubts "motivate" you to run in marathons less than 200 miles away from your home. So those kids you supposedly run for (to inspire them and all) can actually attend and actually cheer you on. Really, I would love for you to step up and prove we "doubters" all wrong. But I'm not holding my breath.

I think the kids are special. I think everyone is special, in their own way. And by "special", I mean different, unique. The world would be awfully dull if we were all alike. That doesn't mean that I believe that everyone is born to be in the spotlight, or to achieve greatness. An ordinary life is special, too, because each individual puts his/her own stamp on it. I guess, as someone upthread said, it depends upon your definition of "special".

Look at all the destruction in her wake: Jon, the kids, her parents and siblings, Jon's parents and siblings, Steve's wife and kids, sweet Jodi Tony and Beth, Jamie and Ashley, the numerous nannies who quit in frustration, the doctor she probably lied to about her "PCOS", the taxpayers, Jon's dad and corporations who threw money their way, on and on. All for what? So Kate could sit on her lipo'd ass? Talk about a bull in a china shop.

I doubt you can sustain a relationship other than Steve.

I doubt you ever do something for nothing.
Feel free to prove me wrong.
I doubt you will.

Katie Cry-duh said...

Yes there are physical signs to PCOS: obesity, hirsuitism (facial and body hair), amenorrhea (no periods). Kate stated that she had PCOS and "knew" she'd have trouble conceiving. She doesn't fit the profile of the typical PCOS patient and worked in labor and delivery. It is believed that she told her ob-gyn she needed fertility treatments and he complied without a thorough work up as she was pregnant within a year of marrying poor Jon. It is basic medical knowledge (I'm an MD) that you do not begin fertity treatments on a young healthy couple until they have tried to conceive unsuccessfully for at least a year. It's been reported that Kate WANTED high order multiples after seeing the outpouring of generosity and freebies the McCaighey septuplets got..and the fame. She is a conniving disgusting person; many people have suffered because of her self-centeredness, most of all those kids

Katie Cry-duh said...

Oh, and the first line treatment for infertility due to PCOS is medical, as in birth control pills, to try to normalize periods and then to try getting pregnant again once going off them. The first line therapy is NOT IUI a few months after people in their early twenties get married. And it is not the standard of care to take your patients word for it without documentation, even if she ingratiates herself to you on the L and D ward

Are there any former sheeple here? I'm curious at what points people saw the light about Kate.

I have to admit, I used to be a Kate fan when the show first started. I'm embarrassed to admit it, but I used to talk to me ex-boyfriend the way Kate spoke to Jon. We had moved in with each other shortly after I started watching the show. My family was always fighting and then watching Kate reinforced it for me. I think I wised up to Kate when I met my new boyfriend and I learned how to treat a man respectfully. I was never Kate level mean to my ex though... and now we are even friends.

Anyway, I didn't mean to ramble about myself. I really want to hear other people's conversion stories and thought I'd get the ball rolling.

I'm not 100 percent sure Jon could stop future filming with a new company. I remeber Charlie Sheen to Denise Richards to court so she could not film their children in her reality show. Charlie lost.

Allison J. said...

To 'he will never again sign contract', how do you know this? It's very easy for people to say they know Jon or Kate with no proof to back them up. I've heard it many times before and unless someone has proof that they are personally involved with Jon or Kate then you can't know positively what anyone would do in any given situation.

Having said this, I believe that Jon loves his kids unconditionally and would do anything for them, unlike their shrew of a mother. I believe he does not want them to ever be filmed again. I was simply making the point that Kate has the courts, the judge and her insane way of always getting what she wants behind her. I wish Jon all kinds of good luck but with Kate as their mother those kids are sunk no matter what.

fidosmommy said...

To return to the Marathon CEO and his wife, one person at Pressi's said they took a shortcut "to get the running experience" that the rest of the runners were getting without doing the whole race.

If he did that, it could have been preplanned for Kate to do the same thing. After all, Kate's REAL purpose in being there was to be a VIP, not just another face in the crowd.

Besides Kate, her friend Ellen and the CEO, how many runners have had timing questions? Has anyone read about those problems on the Facebook page or other sites?

What a mess it is! I don't care if I ever see the Eight, count them Eight, because I hope those little kids are never put in front of a camera again. They deserve that.

Gift of grab said...

Allison J., I think a crucial difference this time around is the lack of TLC in the equation. They had made a huge investment in this family, and given that Kate was on THEIR side, they were willing to duke it out with Jon in civil court and in the court of public opinion. And they were successful. But even though they went out of their way to besmirch Jon, I think they were surprised to see how much support he did have, from people who were outraged that his parental rights were being violated. This is actually when I first became interested in the story.

I think now, even were Kate to attract the notice of a network like TLC (or an even larger one), the fact that the kids have had documented problems, plus the pedophile issue, would mean going in they'd have a huge fight on their hands with the children's father. Given Kate's poor positive image amongst the majority of people who even know who she is, what network would want to have to spend that kind of money just to get her on the air? Not to mention what it would cost them to actually produce a program. In addition, I think this time around Jon would have a lot more support than he had two years ago. All in all, I believe this would be both a PR and bottom-line fail for any interested party.

Nope, if there's any TV in Katie's future, I think she's going to have to make it on her own.

New York State of Mind said...

So, am I understanding this correctly?

Kate is paid for this little running marathon as a publicity gimmick from a D-lister, gets a vacation with her road manager at the Four Seasons away from her kids, doesn't run the full race, but basks in the adoration of the sheeple, laughing the whole time, knowing she got away with yet another stunt while she professes to have done it all for her kids to teach them that determination and perseverance will get them far in life?

She has balls, doesn't she?

Perhaps this particular judge favors mother's instead of father's? As Admin once said there are those type judges who tend to favor mom's who have more money, which at the time with Kate still cosied up with TLC...I believe it's very possible as well as very easy for Jon to have gotten run over so to speak.

Some women wind up getting everything in a divorce, and then bleed the former husband dry for child support which they spend on themselves. I also partly believe that Kate feels it is somewhat Jon's duty, if or not depending if she asked for alimony to be kept in the life she feels she should be accustomed to thereby anexxing more money out of him.

Oh man...can't wait for you to recap 2011. It will be an epic unlike anything you have ever done! The movie 'Moses' comes to mind.

A quote from a participant in the RnR Las Vegas:

How did Kate Gosselin have a golf cart waiting for her when other people were throwing up, passing out on hotel floors with no medial help?

Gosselin:"I hobbled off the finish line proudly wearing my medal and with much needed walking help to a waiting golf cart… and I headed straight to the shower and then to eat my pizza!"

I'm so sick of her lies.

Meagler said...

He he he.... Kate is asking Milo and Jack where to find the stats for her run...wonder how long before Kates stats disappear...esp since they don't support her 9 minute mile for the first half of the marathon.....?

Pat K said...

Oh good grief. When asked on Twitter if she knows where and when her next race will be, Kate said she's not telling. Back to her games again.

I agree with Posters #6 & 7. Why? What's so SPECIAL about them? (other than the circumstances of their birth) I mean,that in itself is ancient news now. Move on....

@MiloandJack how can I get those stats? Where do I go to look them up? about an hour ago

Uh oh, busted. She really means, where can I go so I can get them taken down?

What a strip tease she is. By the way Kate we already figured it out, anyone could. Madrid.

Just went through this year's blog posts and I'm not sure how I'll ever narrow it down to just the top 10.

And here I thought there's no way she could top her top 10 from last year!

She is the biggest idiot when it comes to self promotion. There's no reason to keep this upcoming marathon a secret. She's not filming it for an episode. There are no "spoilers" to guard against. Why not just tell people NOW and start to get folks excited?

Tell people it's Madrid. Get people excited, pumped for it. Heck, maybe even a few sheeple might come out for it. Doubt they can afford it but you never know when a good deal might pop up on Orbitz and maybe they have an old family friend in Spain they can bunk with. Even if they can't come at least spread the word for people to start talking about it and keeping her relavant.

She is of the mindset the best kind of self promotion is to make everything a surprise. This only works when the idea is you want people to watch something after the fact, namely an episode of your show. This makes zero sense when you're trying to build interest and anticipation. In fact, it just frustrates people to play games and tease. You simply don't see other celebs behaving this way, if they want people to pay attention to something they are doing they promote the hell out of it. The last thing they say is stay tuned it's a surprise! Those that do lose fans FAST.

I think she just plays this cat and mouse game, her constantly trying to make people believe what she has going on in her life is a surprise...my guess is because that's all she's got going for her. Keep the sheeple on the edge of their seat with a hold out on something even if it's meaningless. Is that really all she's got left?

Why is it, all 8 of her kids, all the time, are always just SO freaking thrilled and proud of Kate? Last time I checked...kids that age don't care what you've accomplished. On occasion, yes, but to sit their and find her running a marathon hysterical? Whatever. Sounds like overcompinsation to me. Overcompensating to keep Kate in a good mood is by being interested and totally absorbed with her and her needs.

When is the last time Kate every went on and on about something her kids did? I can't think of anything recent. Last I knew she had her kids enrolled in an activity was gymnastics, once for TV and she hovered. Truly not necessary. But I think that's just it. To keep it all about her she will never enroll her kids into separate activities such as baseball, ballet, track, swim class because then she couldn't rattle off on how good she is.

Marie said...

Oh please tell me Kate isn't stupid enough to post she likes to go running when it's dark!

What mother does that? Hope she hasn't left the kids alone. Oh sure, Kate, by all means tell any old Betty and guy name Joe you go out at night. Your yard isn't fenced all the way around and unless you've got night security...good luck with that. Moron!

As far as her PCOS claim, I don't see it either. Don't most doctors and that have to legally test you or something before you try and get pregnant in such a way? Not sure.

I do find it fishy she was so obsessed with getting pregnant so quickly. Don't most couples want some time to themselves? Is it that Kate maybe was one of those types that once the girl get's pregnant she thinks the guy can't leave?

Marie said...

@Admin...I don't know I did not think it was possible for Kate to outdo herself with the list from 2010. Hope you have lots of fun with it! :)

please keep kate gosselin away from the london marathon 2012

To return to the Marathon CEO and his wife, one person at Pressi's said they took a shortcut "to get the running experience" that the rest of the runners were getting without doing the whole race.

If he did that, it could have been preplanned for Kate to do the same thing. After all, Kate's REAL purpose in being there was to be a VIP, not just another face in the crowd.
--------------------------

At first I believed she ran the whole marathon, but after reading about the discrepancies, I also think she took shortcuts. fidosmommy, your comment is spot on. I couldn't have written it better myself.

Hi all!
Thank you for all of your well wishes, alhough I was only in the hospital a day or 2.

There's an asshole in your mist who goes by: jennaluna24, cameron/oulette, & now, one of the judys, CLAIMING she knows me & all about me.
____________________________

Uh, please clarify that "one of the Judys" remark because I am the original Judy on this blog and have no idea who or what you are talking about, including the AmyF remark. Somehow, the above remarks don't sound like HC to me.

Hippie Chick said...

Guys,
That WAS me. amyf IS jennaluna24, the troll who has been stalking me, she is also now jonathan/jon, as THAT is my husband's name!

And JudyK, I didn't mean ANY disrespect to you AT ALL. This "one of the judy's" who posted that "I was in the hospital for nerves & depression" is the very same "jennaluna24, Jonathan/Jon, etc. Look at how amf & "he" write back to back.

amyf wanted back on my blog to harass me. PLUS, through emails, I KNEW where her email was coming from. I was a little uptight last night, as the holidays are right around the corner! Sorry about my language. BUT, be wary of amyf. And "jennaluna24", & this "Jonathanas/Jon" was someone just to try to piss me off saying I was in a bad place right now so she could answer back, saying something about me. She is trying to get in my head.

I am still me. It is STILL me.

Let's see, this "stalker": came to my blog at least 8 times a day leaving nasty nasty lies, she kept messaging my FB account, & more. I had to take my blog down & keep in PRIVATE. Every time there was a message from "jennaluna24" (trust me, this was meant for me) on here, amyf was posting right behind, asking to be invited to my blog, not to mention the blog. Not to mention the email. And the Jonathan/Jon thing? She has Googled my whole life!!

Just be careful of her.

Much Peace to you all,
~HC~

True...After trying to get pregnant for a long time, I went through extensive testing...nearly dying from a reaction to an Iodine dye that was injected so x-rays could be taken. Long story, but I was 28 when we began trying to have a child and 31 when we adopted our two-week-old baby girl.

This is pretty funny:

@MiloandJack how can I get those stats? Where do I go to look them up? about an hour ago

What did she THINK the chip was for, decoration? Or is she just being disingenuous? Surely, SOMEONE explained to her beforehand what the chip does and that the results would be posted online. Her two best buddies, perhaps?

Maybe next time she'll wait to write about her "victory" until after she avails herself of the collected objective evidence.

Or she could just read here?

chefsummer said...

Let's see what Kate's cheats at

Her marriage-(maybe)
Her children out of a good mothrt
Her children out of a pravite life
Her children by taalking about their fatherHer children by-(possible spending their money)

Her parents & family by nothing letting thr 8 spend time with their blood.
HER Fand/follower by grifting.
So why not cheat at running.

And who said cheater's never prosper?.

After reading through all of these comments, it looks to me like Kate should dust off the "Kate and Rumors" section of her web site and get it up and running, lol.

What is the name of the website where you can go and view twitter conversation threads? I can't remember what it's called...TIA PS thanks for what you said about PSU Admin. A student was killed in a car accident while on a trip to raise funds for kids with cancer last weekend. That is who Penn State really is.
