Book a Royal Caribbean celebrity cruise with Kate next August


No, this is actually not a parody dreamed up for a few laughs by the nonbelievers on a slow Friday night. Kate really is joining Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas August 12-19, 2012. For just several thousand dollars (plus flight to Ft. Lauderdale, plus hotel the night before, plus tips, plus alcohol, plus shore excursions, plus fuel surcharge of $70/day if fuel goes over $65/barrel), you too can:


  • Meet Kate Gosselin at our private welcome cocktail party
  • A commemorative personalized gift from Kate (one per family)
  • Capture your memories onboard with a personal photo with Kate Gosselin
  • Join Kate for a private BBQ on deck with a fabulous band
  • Join Kate for a morning brunch
  • Fun fun family games with Kate and staff
  • Charity dinner with Kate (optional)
  • Got questions for Kate? Attend her Q & A session
  • Check out Kate's latest book and bring it onboard for a book signing
  • Doesn't Kate always have the best ideas! Learn a new craft from the professional herself
  • Let's explore! Shore excursion with Kate
  • Let's talk about our fabulous cruise experience! Private group farewell dinner
Oh by the way, if Kate doesn't show up for whatever reason, I don't know like if Steve gets a splinter, you're SOL. According to a press release, two of the children will be going. For more information and to sign up, check out the official web site. http://www.kategosselincruise.com/

Cookie@196 -- At the very least, you'd think Kate would on her tweets and website--oh wait, she doesn't care, she is the STAH, not the "mastermind," and what she doesn't know can't come back and bite her in the butt, right?

#####

Kate wouldn't know that there is a difference between a standard passport and a passport card, so of course she wouldn't mention this. She didn't even know that international travelers were allowed to cruise.

------------------------------------------------
But Kate IS promoting family time (see kids playing on beach, etc) as part of the cruise package for the fans so it sounds she is expecting the twins to put on some kind of performance (fake playtime on beach, anyone?) and very likely will allow pictures taken of the twins to please her fans. Why do you think the twins are not going to be put to some kind of work? There's no way the twins are under contract with Royal Ship so I don't understand why she has to mention the kids at all! Does anyone think Jon will really allow the twins to 'vacation/promote Royal Ship' with their mom under that kind of scruity? I would say, no thanks.

Canuck said...

silimom said... 194 LB - I don't see Jon taking Kate to court to keep the twins from vacationing with their mom, and that's how the court will see it.
****
My original concern at comment 144 wasn't so much about Kate taking some/all of the kids with her on a working vacation, but more about this specific vacation. I have thought for a long time that Kate underestimates the power of her tweets and twitter account, and forgets or overlooks the fact that she has no idea who she's communicating with. It's bad enough that she 'virtually' discloses the kids' locations/schedules, etc. but to physically put them in the presence of her so-called fans without really knowing who they are is asking for trouble. If I were Jon, I would say no to this one. But I feel like I'm in the minority in this case. Lots of concern about her grifting in general, but little to be said by many about her (and others') kids being involved. She should never, IMO, have been corresponding with minors in the first place.

What's concerning is that the sheeple are suggesting that the teens find a way to get the money and book a room with a single adult sheeple who is going.

----
There is all kinds of documentation that will be needed for a minor child to travel with an adult who does not have legal custody of that minor... especially when leaving the country, which is what this cruise is doing. The documentation will also have to be notarized by BOTH parents of the minor.

This link below is a situation on a cruise similar to this one, with Royal Caribbean, where a cruiser ran into all sorts of problems with Customs when debarking in Ft. Lauderdale - and were traveling with their nephews.

Interesting reading...and this was with their NEPHEWS! Can you imagine an adult - not related at all to a teenager - in this situation??!!

Once A Viewer said...

The whole cruise thing is making me ill too...scam/lazy way to make a buck/ take advantage of sheeple....

Checked the menu for Kate & her 'friend' which was a 'rare treat' for her to eat lunch, so busy you know...it was a Dr Praeger vegie burger, rice, salad ( she eats a lot of avacadoes!) and sweet potato fries.

C (Is for cookie) said... I also gotta say that limiting the "commemorative personalized gift" to one per family is super-cheap and insulting.

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

What else can one expect from a who woman who embodies cheap and insulting? Hell, even her wardrobe is cheap and insulting.

I have to say though... just because all her most vocal tweeties are saying they can't go doesn't mean there aren't sheeple out there, lurkers if you will, who aren't gung-ho and actually booking this cruise without saying anything. How is the irony completely lost on the sheeple that their Koupon Kween Katie wants them to book a luxury cruise to meet her, when she is constantly espousing a philosophy of frugality? I mean, come on! The "head blogger" of Coupon Cabin is encouraging her fans to book a luxury cruise at a greatly marked up price for the honor of recieving a picture with her and some gaudy trinkets (one gift per family). The fact that they expecting 200 people is a testament to the fact that there with be no personal interaction with the Queen other than getting an autograph on a book you have to buy yourself! Tacky is what it is, to nickle and dime people who are spending so much money to breathe the same air as her. Actions speak louder than word sheeple, and these actions are saying that Kreider doesn't give a shit about people saving money. Whatever sheeple are dumb enough to fall for this scam are going to have a rude awakening. I think this is Kreiders last hurrah for taking advantage of her fans.

She isn’t swimming. She’s jumping the sharks with this cruise.

Twittering and a Twattering said...

AA @ 199:That long nap time was all about Kate getting rid of them for the afternoon. Good grief when my kids were babes I'd poke my head in their room every few minutes to make sure they were sleeping.

lol, Auntie Ann! I poked my head in their room every few minutes just to make sure that they were breathing! Even when they were toddlers in their own beds, I'd do the same thing. I needed to hear that sound. I often think that it is amazing that those babies got through their infancy and toddler stage unscathed, given her parenting skills. Angels (and Jon) certainly were watching over them.

Canuck said...

And to whomever said it above: if Jon Gosselin was soliciting to minors for $$ "do it, do it, do it!", or EVEN if he was suggesting he make money off his J&K+8 fans to join him on some half-baked celebrity cruise, the screams of outrage from the Kate crazies would be deafening. He would indeed be hung out to dry, to say the least.

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

I agree with you, Canuck, and there are plenty of other reasons to be concerned if she drags the twins along with her. These ships amount to a floating city of 6,000 people, with no government and no police force.

Does anyone believe she is going to supervise whatever children she brings 24/7 while on a cruise? Or that she'll pay for a nanny to keep them out of harm's way?

Maybe her plan is to trot them out for the 5 minute fan opp, and then lock them in their cabin for the rest of the trip, which is just as bad as leaving them to roam on their own while Kate does whatever it is that Kate wants to do.

Everything about this trip smells to high heaven. The only good thing about it is that there is no chance at all that there are 200 fans with $2500 apiece to fund this trip from hell.

No way would I take a depressed 11 year old on a trip like this. I can't imagine anything worse for her mental health. I doubt it would do any good for an 11 year old Disney star wannabe, either. But why should Kate care?

Charity, huh? What do you want to bet she'll take all the charity money collected, make the donation in her own name, and then use the donation as a tax write-off? She's just diabolical enough to do that.

That long nap time was all about Kate getting rid of them for the afternoon. Good grief when my kids were babes I'd poke my head in their room every few minutes to make sure they were sleeping. I understand any mom's need for a break and some kind of organization especially with six babies, but to leave them alone in a room for four hours is ignorant and unsafe. How they all survived babyhood with Kate's mothering skills is beyond me. Oh yeah... Jon.

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

Same here, AuntieAnn.

I found it odd that Kate forced her babies to sit in their cribs for all those hours. No matter how busy I was, I never did that to my babies.

I presume that the curtains were also drawn to block out the daylight. So those little babies had to sit their cribs for hours (in the semi darkness), waiting for their mother-thing to fetch them.

It was a big mistake allowing cameras to film her "motherly skills", or lack of. Only Jon, family & neighbors knew that Kate was an abusive dolt up until then. Now the rest of us know what a nimrod she is.

I suppose after this cruise, more people will see what an assh*le she is.

They want Kate? They can have her, and have at her.

P.S. anyone else think that besides robbing her fans dry on that "trip to poverty", Kate will also trick her sheeple/tweeple into working for her (i.e. getting her drinks, food, etc...)?

Canuck said...

So true Dee. I have seen enough pictures of the one little girl to cause me great concern - she never looks happy. Quite the opposite. Something like this, being literally trapped among a bunch of bleating strangers would be unbearable for her, I imagine. A caring mom would never put her child in such a position. Stinks to high heaven is correct. Reeks.

I would give anything to afford to fly out and see him and Kate is grifting for another effing vacation while she keeps her family estranged.

Menu Monday!

January 9, 2012

Recently, I had an impromptu lunchtime visit from a friend. Using all ingredients that I already had in my kitchen, I was able to whip up the following delicious and very healthy meal very quickly:
Grilled Vege Patties, Tomato Avocado Salad, Baked Sweet Potato Fries and Black and Mahogany Rice.

Recipes:
Grilled Vege Patties - I did not make these, but I always keep Dr. Praeger’s Vege Patties handy for quick meals for myself. My favorite is the Italian patties but I also love the curry and the California burgers (You can find them in your grocer’s organic frozen section) I simply had to grill them!

Tomato Avocado Salad - I diced two ripe avocados, cut 30 cherry tomatoes in half and thinly sliced about 2 tablespoons of red onion into a bowl. Next, I made my grandma’s balsamic dressing and poured it over the mixture and lightly tossed. I covered it tightly with press ‘n seal and left it on the counter to blend its flavors.

Grandmas balsamic dressing -
3 tbsp balsamic vinegar (Colavita is my favorite brand)
4 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp minced garlic
1 to 1 1/2 packets of Splenda OR 1 tsp sugar

Baked Sweet Potato Fries - Using the two sweet potatoes that were rolling around in the vege drawer of my fridge, I made THE most delicious baked sweet potatoes fries. This was a sudden vision I had when I laid eyes on them looking a bit lonely in that drawer! I had never made them before but decided to attempt it!

Heres the how to: I thinly strip sliced the sweet potatoes to almost a “shoe lace” size. I then put them into a gallon Ziploc bag and added 2 tablespoons finely diced red onion, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, about a tsp of rosemary leaves, two tablespoons of flour, a pinch of salt and a pinch of pepper. I shook the bag to coat and poured them onto a lightly oiled cookie sheet. I baked them at 400 for about 20 minutes and then turned temp up to 450 for a few minutes to brown and crisp them. Wow – insanely delicious, addicting, and even healthy!
Bonus: I turned my kids into sweet potato fry fans, finally, with this little miracle!

Black and Mahogany Rice - I bought the unseasoned rice blend previously, and simply cooked it in low sodium chicken broth, added Emeril’s Essence (I so love you Emeril, and have been using your blue lid Essence since you introduced me to it when you visited my home and we cooked together, thank you!!), a pinch of lemon pepper seasoning, a pinch of salt and a punch of pepper. Near the end of the 50 minute cooking time, I threw in a small handful of organic dried sweetened cranberries. This simple rice was amazingly flavorful!

My fast lunch turned out to be a very healthy, flavorful, and colorful lunch and it was very much enjoyed along with some good conversation…. A rare treat for a mom who is typically grabbing a quick lunch on the run… If I’m lucky! :)

Enjoy!

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

I believe that the travel agency's cut has been taken out. They are asking one thousand dollars over the amount where the cruise could be booked elsewhere. The agency's cut comes out of the thousand dollars, leaving Kate with about $800. At least that's what I understood from someone who worked at an agency.

Agreed. That's why I figure about 50 people will attend, even though the Twitter response is lackluster.

"Whatever sheeple are dumb enough to fall for this scam are going to have a rude awakening. I think this is Kreiders last hurrah for taking advantage of her fans."

It's enough to make me feel sorry for the sheeple, really. Kate will likely start off fine, but eventually the sheeple will annoy her, she'll realize that most people on the boat couldn't care less about who she is, and something will go wrong. How will they like it when she treats them they way she treated Ashley or even Steve? How many of them will continue to blame Jon, editing, low blood sugar, stress, exhaustion, and the kids?

Did she ever change a freaking diaper I wonder. I'm mad at myself for ever watching that show in the first place. She just angers me.

And yes, I remember standing beside the crib/bed listening for the breathing too, lol. It's instinctive for MOST of us to do that. Kate is the exception to every parenting rule out there.

There is all kinds of documentation that will be needed for a minor child to travel with an adult who does not have legal custody of that minor... especially when leaving the country, which is what this cruise is doing. The documentation will also have to be notarized by BOTH parents of the minor.

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

Absolutely. I saw this first-hand on a cruise. We were in the port, waiting in line to board, and the woman at the front of the line was taking her two children with her. This was Holland America. Even though she had custody of the children, she did not have notarized permission from the children's father to take them out of the country. She was hysterical. The cruise line wouldn't budget.

They had to fax permission forms to him to sign. He had to have them notarized and fax them back and she was frantic that it wouldn't get done in time. I don't know how it turned out. I do know that on many cruise lines, if the minor child's parent is deceased, you do have to produce the death certificate.

I'm not sure what the regulations are on Royal Caribbean, but these sheeple need to get all their ducks in order ahead of time so there are no surprises when they go to board. They think that someone under 21 can just buy a ticket and show up. They will be in for quite a shock.

She talks about keeping her sweet potatoes in her refrigerator. Anyone with an ounce of sense knows you NEVER keep potatoes in the fridge. You keep them in a dry, cool place. NOT the fridge with all of the moisture.

And I think that is totally made up about the being her "grandma's dressing". Like others have mentioned, this recipe for dressing is on every Food Network show/site and food magazine.

Oh wait, since she is her own fave charity, guess she already is giving back.

Also I find it very interesting that Kate had that for lunch with her fantasy friend. Note she did NOT serve it to her kids. I don't think she really cares about organic for the kids. She that wants organic and eats it...not the kids.

Also, that rice is stuff you buy and simply cook. It was zero imagination for Kate to do. She simply added canberries at the end.

And there are tons of receipes for baked sweet potato fries with rosemary, flour,& EVOO.

Why, oh why does Kate always have to pretend that she had this "sudden vision" of her fries that she now claims is a "small miracle" for her kids. Wow! She really thinks she thought of some original dish. She didn't. The receipes are all over the website. This is what makes me sick about her. She wants all the glory for being special and she isn't.

If they don't answer, I go looking for them. I'm such a Mother Hen and they get embarrassed when I show up at one of their activities' groups. But hey, I want to know where they are at all times.

I wish there was some way to pound it through the sheeples extremely thick skulls that Kate blew off the meet & greet THEY said they wanted and could afford to have in St. Louis. She immediately said it could be a charity event (translation- I have to find a charity to arrange this and pay for my travel, publicize it and pay me too) Either she struck out or didn't even bother trying to arrange it, she instead lied to the flock. Said the entire month of August was for back to school preparation.

This August, however, is a different story! She can be now be convinced to tear herself away from the usual entire month of back to school prep since it involves a free cruise and possibly a nice paycheck too! See that sheeple? She blew you all off like a hurricane when you wanted to meet her because there was nothing in it for her. But now, the woman who lives in a million dollar mansion on 24 acres, owns three very expensive vehicles, who pays $8,000-$10,000 A MONTH for private school- wants you to go deeply into debt if you want to meet her. She wants you to pay for her cruise + she wants you all TO PAY HER FOR GOING ON HER FREE CRUISE even if you can't afford it. "Just do it- do it!" I have tears in my eyes at the thought of it!" The woman who claimed she couldn't afford to take her kids to Hershey Park for the day is telling you to just spend money you don't have so you can finance the lifestyle she feels she's entitled to. Hollywood has slammed the door in her face, they want nothing to do with her. Now she's looking to you mediocre, regular job working shlubs buy her what she wants. *Just like she did for the first 2 years after the tups were born. Now that show business has chewed her up and spit her out, she's going back to grifting the mediocre people. My, my, old habits die hard.

Well said! At least she abandoned the idea of the love offerings church circuit. This must be the next best thing. The sheeple, though, are saying that they don't mind. She has to earn a living somehow. I guess they are even dumber than we thought.

Kate needs to tweet them, or put it on her website, that unless they are 21, they need an adult present on this cruise IN THE SAME CABIN, and notarized documentation from each parent allowing them to go. In addition, she needs to tell them that the adult in the cabin who books the cruise must have a valid credit card in order to board.

Here's a clue for you Katedolt, it's an old saying, "You eat with your eyes first". I know you won't grasp the meaning but try to say this very slowly; "I will not slop food on my plates". Your food pictures always look as if the meal was dished up by a cook in a maximum security prison cafeteria. Presentation Katedolt, it's an art in itself.

@salleywinner @chancertheboxer @kateplusmy8 @kellyripa I predict lawsuits over non-disclosure of the fees related to meeting Kate

******

I doubt it. They could try, but wouldn't get anywhere. Everything is disclosed in the travel documents. If the sheeple are too stupid to read it, or understand it, then they need to find someone who can. Ignorance is no excuse.

What are they going to sue for - because they couldn't have a one-on-one girl chat at the bar? Because Kate didn't show up for a shore excursion? Because the "commemorative" gift was nothing more than a box of organic cereal? Because they didn't know that alcohol wasn't included or a fuel charge would be levied? It's all there in their documents.

There are no guarantees made that each person will have an up close and personal encounter with her. The agency gives a list of events planned, but the disclaimer states that all of it is subject to change.

I wish there was some way to pound it through the sheeples extremely thick skulls that Kate blew off the meet & greet THEY said they wanted and could afford to have in St. Louis. She immediately said it could be a charity event (translation- I have to find a charity to arrange this and pay for my travel, publicize it and pay me too) Either she struck out or didn't even bother trying to arrange it, she instead lied to the flock. Said the entire month of August was for back to school preparation.

This August, however, is a different story! She can be now be convinced to tear herself away from the usual entire month of back to school prep since it involves a free cruise and possibly a nice paycheck too! See that sheeple? She blew you all off like a hurricane when you wanted to meet her because there was nothing in it for her. But now, the woman who lives in a million dollar mansion on 24 acres, owns three very expensive vehicles, who pays $8,000-$10,000 A MONTH for private school- wants you to go deeply into debt if you want to meet her. She wants you to pay for her cruise + she wants you all TO PAY HER FOR GOING ON HER FREE CRUISE even if you can't afford it. "Just do it- do it!" I have tears in my eyes at the thought of it!" The woman who claimed she couldn't afford to take her kids to Hershey Park for the day is telling you to just spend money you don't have so you can finance the lifestyle she feels she's entitled to. Hollywood has slammed the door in her face, they want nothing to do with her. Now she's looking to you mediocre, regular job working shlubs buy her what she wants. *Just like she did for the first 2 years after the tups were born. Now that show business has chewed her up and spit her out, she's going back to grifting the mediocre people. My, my, old habits die hard.

Guys check out this pic from US Weekly: http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/kate-gosselin-hosting-caribbean-cruise-201291
Could this be the infamous Kate at the Academy Awards in September? You know where she supposedly went but no one saw her walk the red carpet? I have never seen that dress on her before and if you look behind her, there is a red velvet rope, perhaps for the stars only? As for the cruise, she is probably banking on the marketing convention and the Bermuda thingy to conjure up some passengers. Should be interesting to see how this all unfolds.

I'm just surprised that this teen griting thing and Kate telling them to find a means to get the money whatever way they can hasn't made it to the internet tabs yet - Radar, INF, etc., and maybe eventually to the National Enquirer and the Star, TMZ, Entertainment Tonight...

Don't they love this kind of thing? Or has she totally fallen off the radar and isn't even worthy of their attention?

Kate's not getting much positive press with her latest venture.
From Entertainment Weekly:"Today in Seriously?!: Kate Gosselin hosts a cruise"
Some funny reader comments:
"Let's hope they have enough lifeboats."
"I would only go if one of the activities is her in a dunk tank, where if you win, she actually goes in the ocean...and isn't rescued!"
"Is this the cruise that's going to retrace the path of the Titanic? Please?"

Color me surprised. ALL posts here were very critical of Kate leaving her kids home alone with Ashley and the film crew 'daddies' while she was in New York that one time. And rightfully so!

Do people really go on cruises, leave their kids with strangers for the activities (read free babysitting) and go off to enjoy themselves? Cruises are a pedophile's paradise. I find this rather...shocking. I would never, ever leave a child alone with strangers. Especially on a crowded boat full of wackos.

From Popwatch (http://popwatch.ew.com/2012/01/09/kate-gosselin-royal-caribbean-cruise/)

Gosselin has proven time and again that it doesn’t matter how much pampering or payola is in it for her, she is incapable of stopping the ugly emotions when they come surging to the surface.

Wow, this says it all.

It's desperation time for Kate. Can't happen fast enough.

Sweet Charity said...

I just have to say this. I have known quite a few celebrities personally, and not D-listers, but major celebrities...nice ones and not-so-nice ones, unassuming ones and braggarts, ones who love their fans and are devoted to them, and ones who want nothing to do with them and consider them an annoyance.

I have never, though, known anyone who goes to such lengths to get something for nothing, or is so bold in their grifting and obsession with having everything handed to them without working as Kate Gosselin.

Amen to that. It's just stupid, and not just because of pedophiles. But maybe this is the perfect vacation if you don't want to spend it with your kids. You know, like Kate's dream world.

6,000 strangers, floating in a lawless ocean, tons of bars, and no accountability at all. It's the perfect place to dump the kids, worry-free.

This is a quote from the cruise critic article Kate is a twit posted

"We can’t help but wonder if this will end up as another celeb-themed cruise cancellation, so be on the lookout for a flood of late cabin availability if it happens. (The likes of Pitbull, Florence Henderson and Bret Michaels have all had to ax sailings for various reasons.)"

Let's see... Pitbull is a huge reggaeton star famous among Latinos (even my grandmother dances to his music - too cute!), Florence Henderson was a star on the Brady Bunch and continued to work on TV including DWTS (and OT, but she was raised with 9 siblings and her mother was a homemaker. No TV show kept her family afloat as a child!) and Bret Michaels was a rock star in the 80's who had a reality dating show. Call these celebrities what you will - even if they aren't A-list they have fan bases. Even THEY cancelled their celeb cruises. Maybe if we weren't in a recession people would be more willing to cough up the cash to attend these functions.

Her 4 sheeple that sign up better get insurance so they can get a refund when the Queen cancels her cruise.

I'm a long time lurker, but only occasionally do I comment.

This whole cruise business just sticks in my craw. Just when you think the whole "I manufactured my children just to become famous" debacle is at its end...

She seriously solicits her tweety fans to divert their college funds, change their family vacations and "hehe sell your organs (and pianos) LOL".

Just to board the same boat she may be on for a few days and get the chance to be in the same room while she tells you how to do a craft she's never actually done?

Really??

I'm kind of embarrassed that there are still people on this planet dumb enough to believe the marketing.

Even kids know that the commercial portraying Mr.Potato Head talking doesn't mean the one that comes in the box actually talks.

Really?? Are there still people out there that are that dull?

I'm done now.

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

Oh, yes they do! They let babies and toddlers alone for an entire day with sitters. This always amazes me, how parents could do this, not knowing what was going on with their young children. I've even seen some parents leave the ship on shore excursions, leaving the kids behind on the ship in the activities program.

My kids were over 10 years old before I would even let them participate in such programs, and even then, I knew where they were all the time and who they were with and they were never gone for more than two hours a day. If they have activities by the pool, I'm sitting there watching. If they have a scavenger hunt on the ship, I'm right behind them. It annoys them, but it's the only way I will allow them to do it. If they are in one of the activities rooms doing a craft, I check up on them with the walkie-talkie.

I must say, though, that the supervisors are very good and do take excellent care of these kids. In Disney's program, the security system for signing the kids in and out is very extensive, and every parent is given a beeper and is contacted if there is any concern, even in the enclosed activities room. Strangers just can't come in and take a child. Short of fingerprinting the parents, they do have an excellent security program in place.

I think that what concerns me the most is in case of an emergency on board (fire, hitting an iceberg!) that I would be separated from my children. I keep thinking about the Titanic and Poseidon. For some parents, though, it doesn't seem to bother them.

NLAN - Thanks for the lunch pic. I have to say that is the most unappetizing looking plate of food I have ever seen. And as someone said earlier those aren't shoe string they are steak cut.

I could be wrong but my impression is Kate goes online, downloads recipes that she thinks are healthy and presents them as her own.

You know, it's very sad to watch this woman who clearly needs help. Why lie? Just say " I found a great recipe on cooks.com etc. You should try it!" There is no shame in not being a stellar cook. This woman is so wrapped up into appearances. People I've met like that usually have no clue who they are and have very low self esteem despite their bravado.

Just plain sad.

It's about the cruise. Fans will spend quality time with Kate...Jane says it sounds like a nightmare, but way for Kate to make another buck. They took admin's Titanic idea and showed the same picture on this thread.

Jane asking where did all her money go...some guy says that her money can run out fast. He says, Kate, this is pathetic, but on the other hand, she is trying to put money in the bank account. People can be harsh on her, but should be noted that other celebrities do this.

Jane got in a nasty dig at Jon, threw him under the bus.

Wow -- I got a bargain on my cruise. I just paid it off and note that Holland America will only charge $9 per day if the price of oil exceeds ... etc. Also,the expenses of setting up, advertising and administering the cruise as well as charges for all the extras fees for setting up the special event rooms as well as all beverages served, probably special food service as well, the gift/goody bags handed out, craft supplies ($1 per person?, name tags, etc. so Kate isn't getting everything after Alice Travel's %. My guess is it's a flat fee per passenger booked. It's still a big scam.

Canuck: I agree with you...not only is Kate putting her own children in danger potentially, but also minor sheeple, who may bunk in with an adult weird one....

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I think there is a valid argument Jon could make for Kate to not take the twins along on this trip IF they are made to work on the trip--including posing for photographs, being ogled by fans, required to attend fan events with Kate. If she assures Jon and the judge that the kids will not participate in any of that and will be with the nanny or RC kid zones while Kate works, I think the judge will allow it.

Sillimom, my celeb sometimes, thought truly not that often, took the children along on working trips. But they never, ever were made to participate in the event themselves and always had a nanny, or adult sibling or trusted friend along to do fun things with them until the adult work day was over. In fact, the trip I went on was a working trip, they were making a movie. I was with the children all day, and parents would join us for dinner and time together in the evening like see a movie or hang out at the hotel pool. No one bothered us not once. The older they got, the more rare it was for the kids to be along on working trips. Eventually one of them refused to go all together--they don't like to travel. Another local event was a signing at a local community festival. I took the kids separately, we went to a kids booth where they were doing an art project, and we had fun there until Mommy was done with her fans and could come join us and even helped with the project for a bit--again, no one cared and I don't even think the other people there knew there were celebrity kids there.

Even a year ago the kid who doesn't like to travel was asking me to come stay with kid while parents and siblings were out of town for the weekend at a publicity event (think like presenting at a showbiz gala out of town)--this kid didn't want to go and wasn't made to go. Good grief Kate, just about everybody in this business has handled this situation better than you. Even other narcissists. Congrats.

If Kate can arrange it so the twins have a similar experience, where it really is all vacation to them and they don't have to do what they don't want to, I suppose it's possible to keep them protected. But I'm not convinced. I've seen the kid zones on RC. They are freely accessible to anyone. Anyone could stand at the window and stare. Anyone who has a kid could walk right in. Unless you lock them in their tiny rooms, I don't see how the kids can be on this ship and still be protected from crazy fans.

Her silence in Vegas is silly. This is the whole POINT of twitter, promote yourself and your company. Going to Vegas is interesting, conceivably. This is exactly when you DO tweet. Heck she could even make the effort to get the conference twitter name, they have one, and tweet them compliments just like so many others at the conference have

By the way, I was able to confirm with an event rep that Kate is indeed there as we speak. So, she's there. Just not bothering to promote anything.

She said she had to find a way to exercise that didn't cost money, when we all know she has a treadmill in her stupid basement. I know Jon had one of those glider things when they were married and she probably still has that, too. She really thinks people are just THAT stupid to think she had to find an affordable way to work out, yet she buys sportscars, upgrades her fancy patio and pool and treats herself to every other luxury out there. And you can bet your butt if there were a gym near here frequented by celebrities, THAT'S where she would be!

Hey, sheeple. Please join a gym. It's good for your health and long term lifespan. I have an awesome tip for you. If you are a member of Costco or heck even if your FRIEND is a member of Costco you can purchase upfront a two year membership to 24 hour fitness that works out to about $13 bucks a month. Most gym memberships will run you at least $30 bucks a month.

Really? I thought that was her most narcissistic blog post yet. I could hear her arrogant self all throughout that post. "As you may already know..." as if the whole world knows her every move. "I've always belived in being fit..." Always? The first 4-5 years after the tups were born you didn't work out and had zero interest in the outdoors. You wouldn't even skate with your daughter or participate in any skiing in Utah ( your lazy ass was at the spa ).

She just proves time and time again that she will say whatever benefits her and makes her look good in that moment, even if there is proof that contradicts what she says.

I believe Kate has $millions and she just wants to take the opportunity to show off her nasty bikini body on the cruise ship. She will take any gig in order to stay "out there." I saw a brief minute of Jane V Mitchell re: Kate's cruise. I changed the channel quickly. How is it news worthy anyway?

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

Someone that posted a message on the Cruise Critic facebook page, basically said the same thing we have been saying here:

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx WHY is everyone blaming the Cruiseline? THEY are NOT paying her! She has a Group Cruise booked with a legitimate travel agent on RCCL. Anyone that books through the agency for HER group cruise will pay extra to be with her, therefore paying Kate. RCCL is making no additional money, other than getting the money owed to them for each cabin booked. The commission with go the the agency organizing this fiasco, and the additional $600-650 to be with Kate, will obviously go to Kate...NOT RCCL. RCCL is paying Kate NOTHING! The people booking through Alice Travel are paying Kate! If you don't want to be on the ship with her group, don't book the Allure August 12-19!

It's shameful how Kate is pushing this cruise through Alice Travel to her beloved sheeple (who she loves, and values so much ;o) ).

I knew her sheeple were going to serve her well in some way or another....

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Are we sure RC is not making any money? I highly doubt that. They are allowing Kate to host numerous events using their rooms. A cruise has hundreds of events on the ship on each trip but they don't hand them out like candy, they must be getting some kind of cut to compensate them for use of the areas on the ship. Heck they are even having that bbq RC isn't throwing that for free, they will want to be compensated fairly. At the very least they must have some provision where if you fill X amount of cabins we will allow you the use of the room. There is SOME benefit to them they are not a charity.

I think RC does need to take a certain responsibility for who they have on their ship, but I don't think Kate is at the level where they need to refuse her event.

She's Nuts, wait they took the photoshop I made? Or they just took a picture actually from Titanic?

=====

I don't think it was your photoshop, admin, but I can't be 100 percent positive that it wasn't. I was cooking dinner, looked up for a second, started typing, and didn't pay attention to the heads on the photo. I laughed because they used your idea for the Titanic picture and thought...hmmmm...were they reading 15 Minutes? I happened so fast I didn't have time to check it out. I do know that both Jane and whatever guy on there really were slamming Jon, and for no reason. It wasn't about him, it was about the cruise, but they couldn't resist the chance to knock him down.

Hehe, idea stealers. I see it repeats again later tonight. I'll check it out.

Just like Kate doesn't want anyone making money off her kids but her, no one makes money off my photoshops but ME!

First the only cruise me mum and da took was the Alaskan Inside Passage Cruise. They had a good time, said there were kids aboard, and very good kids at that. Me mum is not wild about kids, but was impressed by these. There were activities for them. The only way to do this trip is by boat. Can't drive it.

Second, the fans on twitter seem to finding that they can book the cruise a thousand less elsewhere. I imagine a good many will. Imagine their shock when they get aboard and find out they won't be allowed anywhere near their favorite grifting, selfish abuser. Steve will finally have his hands full keeping people away. I doubt the ship would let them pay an extra $1000 once they are on board since they will have alloted space for those who already paid. The ship isn't getting an extra cut at that point. Those fans will be real haters, I mean real out of their minds, I'm gonna tear her up, haters. None so mean as those who spend a lot money, went to a lot trouble, but tried to at least get a deal by paying regular price, and then get bitch slapped. Dealing with danger here.

Why slamming Jon? What the hell does Jon have to do with anything? He hasn't said a damn word in ages. He's said nothing about this cruise. Jon actually works a 9 to 5 job and isn't using the twins to get more fans to give him money.

I don't get why this guy who has actively REMOVED himself from the public eye is being forced to pay for a few months of mistakes committed two years ago. Did they SEE who he was married to? More importantly are they hearing what comes out off her mouth?

This woman drives me CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!

She said she had to find a way to exercise that didn't cost money, when we all know she has a treadmill in her stupid basement. I know Jon had one of those glider things when they were married and she probably still has that, too. She really thinks people are just THAT stupid to think she had to find an affordable way to work out, yet she buys sportscars, upgrades her fancy patio and pool and treats herself to every other luxury out there. And you can bet your butt if there were a gym near here frequented by celebrities, THAT'S where she would be!

Coupn Cabin, you have the biggest dumbest stupidest most arrogant asshat blogging for you!!!

Yes, indeed. They are contacting Ellen to help. This is wrong on so many levels. In fact, it's insane. WHERE ARE THEIR PARENTS?

Why don't they just go to a bunch of churches, tell their sob story and pass around the love offering basket? That's what Kate did.

Button Button said...

One of her tweets said she has tears in her eyes just thinking about being together with so many of her fans in one place. Honestly, how disgusting. What a stupid, disgusting, out and out liar she is. She is despicable. I am really mad just thinking about the young and stupid who are trying to think of ways to make this happen.

Maggie said...

Kate also has a professional punching bag in her basement. Inexpensive way to workout, my ass!

Did any see Jane-Valez Mitchell tonight. The last 10 minutes was devoted to Kate's tour. Ken Baker for E chimed in. Tomorrow on HLN website will be a transpcript of tonight's program. Oh, and they trashed Jon as usual. They even showed a clip from his Hailey days. So, so unfair.

librarylady said...

By the way, I was able to confirm with an event rep that Kate is indeed there as we speak. So, she's there. Just not bothering to promote anything.

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

I'm guessing either she's embarrassed to say she's there because it's just a regular old "mediocre" conference, or she was told not to say anything so as not to give the group negative publicity and public backlash.

Or both.

Otherwise, she'd be going on about how WONDERFUL her "job" is in LV and how EXHAUSTED she is from "working, lol.

Ingrid said...

notarized permission from the children's father... At the risk of the 2 kids being mad at Jon it is one way he could keep them from going-- Don't give permission. LOL

If no one has told Kate of this requirement could she be refused at the boat without it? It would be so funny if it did happen.

librarylady said...

Good grief, why does she try to look so slinky??

And the totally fake smile...ugh. It's all just too far beneath her, isn't it?

Ingrid said...

Paula Deen's cruise offers a commemorative personalized gift "from Paula" too. Maybe it is something the ship offers to its celebs to hand out and not something the celeb brings along to give out.

Crying nothing but crocodile tears just like she cried broke or when Jon supposedly stole their money.

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

He had nothing to do with any of it. I think Jane VM just hates all men in general. It was ridiculous. Slamming Jon and bringing up the Ed Hardy thing was so unnecessary. It just seemed like they were looking at a reason to make him look bad and her look good because she has the kids to support.

librarylady said...

I think something happened to my link up further -trying again!

She's really there, and looking fake as always

Ok, first of all, this presumes she actually HAS something to say. Secondly, could it be that CC told her to shut up?

mim said...

Working a trade show. I realize she's getting paid to simply smile, look good, and allow her picture to be taken with franchise owners, but, geez, there has to be a better way to make a living.
This is one step above modeling at the car show.

chefsummer said...

She might as well be a blow-up doll since she's all fake she quite cause she's with Steve and no kids.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

New post up, hate to leave this photoshop behind but with 700 comments it's time lol.

Had a little fun with the conference photos hope you like. I'm in a snarky mood lately.

Chefsummer: Could you please use puncuation? It is hard to sometimes understand your posts. Thanks.

Sorry, Chef. I can usually figure out what you are trying to say, but this one has me scratching my head!

i'd like to see affirmation of that...not just the difference of buying through alice travel or rc itself. that monetary difference does NOT mean kate gets any of it

Right, Kimmie. Kate gets nothing out of this. She is doing it because her fans are her best friends and extended family. Friends do this for friends, right? Keep drinking that Kook-Aid because on the ship it's not going to be free.

Hey everyone, I'm a regular poster here but I am choosing to remain anonymous for this post. This is completely OT which I apologize for, but I hope you can bear with me. My dad is in the hospital for a brain tumor so I'm just reaching out to get prayers from people. It would really mean a lot to me... It really puts things in perspective, doesn't it? I would give anything to afford to fly out and see him and Kate is grifting for another effing vacation while she keeps her family estranged.

You are not off topic. In fact I find you ON topic. Losing a loved one is so painful and when we are unable to be with them.....all seems impossible.

He knows, he can feel your love.

Yes, the Queen Bitch Gosselin in grifting for more fun freebies. She hasn't felt loss yet.
She has not felt the sting........
Her day is coming.

Loving folks, normal folks.....we know/
Bless you and rest your troubled soul.

didn't say she is doing this for nothing. actually i think she is getting paid and probably well. i just don't know that she gets a percentage of every passenger signing up or a flat fee not based on number of passengers but just getting paid for the gig. what was said above is not fact nor is the amount. it's just speculation.

silimom said...

Chefsummer was saying she might as well be a blow up doll, given how fake she is. She's quiet because she's with Steve and (has) no kids, i.e. all her time and energy is being spent focusing on Steve.

At least that's how I read it. The only thing that threw me for a moment, Summer, was you spelled quiet "quite".

Oops, wrong post. I'll go put it in the newest post now!

Sweet Charity said...

Here's how it is done in the cruise industry/celebrity cruises:

It is an incentive for the celebrity to obtain as many bookings as possible because the cabins need to be filled and the more cabins booked, the more money in his/her pocket. That's how the sponsoring agency makes money, and that's how the cruise line makes money. They do not pay the celebrity a flat rate just for showing up. Think about it. If they paid the celebrity a negotiated fee-for-gig, maybe $50,000 regardless of how many people showed up, and only 25 people booked cabins, both the cruise line and the agency would lose money. The whole idea is to fill the cabins, not just hand over one lump sum to the celebrity. The only exception to this might be if the celebrity is a major one who could guarantee that the number of cabins set aside for the private group would be filled.
This certainly is not the case with Kate.
