Kate Gosselin: 'Nothing tastes as good as thin feels'

Is Kate encouraging the pro-anorexia movement?

Kate continues to be a horrible role model for teen girls and women. Her latest is this tweet, where she told a fan that this slogan (words eerily similar to what got Kate Moss in hot water) was one of her many mottos. In September, Kate tweeted a similar rallying cry: "Can never be tiny enough lol."

In light of all of Kate's young, impressionable fans, we plead with her to retract her comments and to stop saying things like this.


In 2009, another Kate, model Kate Moss, told fans she lives by the motto: “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.” The slogan was adopted by many pro-anorexia web sites. Moss was blasted by a variety of people in the industry, including other models and the groups Say No to Size Zero and Beating Eating Disorders (BEAT). The Advertising Standards Authority, a regulatory group in England, even banned t-shirts with the slogan. 


Anorexia is the third most common chronic illness among adolescents. 24 million people suffer from an eating disorder (anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder) in the U.S. A survey of female college students found that 58% felt pressure to be a certain weight, and of the 83% that dieted for weight loss, 44% were of normal weight.

Where is Gosselin Give Back? said...

Kate just took a photo from her front door to show all her twatters some snow at her place. Why not give them a good shot from the mine all mine kitchen window where they can actually see some snow on the ground? You are so predictable Kate. Always in damage control.

PatK said...

That's not much snow at all. It has even melted in her driveway. She can go run outside.

She just needed to throw something out there for her tweeties.

she lies said...

The photo doesn't seem to have any metadata at all. That's quite unusual.

Mel said...

No, she was proving that she was home. Some on twitter were thinking she was lying about being home and had really stayed in NYC. Transparent much?

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I was wondering the same thing about the snow, why all the drama? That's nothing, it's already melted from the driveway (or the hired help plowed). Throw on a sweatshirt and go run.

Back East we call such things "a light dusting."

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Mel, exactly. I think that's funny actually that she wasn't able to grift an entire weekend in NY. Jason has managed to keep her around for a quick cut and dinner and then kick her out. LOL.

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

That's what's interesting. There's nothing in the metadata proving that it was taken today. The metadata is missing.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Kate's not smart enough to change metadata let alone even know what it is.

Do iphone photos contain metadata?

PatK said...

I'm still waiting for that crazy Milo person to point out the tweets to Kate where she got "punk'd" last night. Being a tattle-tale seems to be Milo's main function.

readerlady said...

Patk 2 -- My thoughts exactly. The ground isn't even completely covered. What the frilly heck is she complaining about?

Thanks for the new post, Admin. Kate's an idiot. Being too thin is just as unhealthy as being too heavy, maybe moreso. Plus it's been demonstrated over and over again by dietitians that diets that exclude certain foods or food groups do not succeed in the long run. The key is to eat a variety of foods from all food groups, in moderation, and to get the right kind of exercise on a regular basis.

^^^^^

Anybody know? I think the answer is yes, but don't know for sure.

I just did a search and found instructions on REMOVING metadata from iPhones, so it looks as if it exists all right.

????? said...

So what's the theory? Kate is still in NYC, someone sent her a pic of her front yard with snow, she removed the metadata and tweeted it to show SHE's at home?

Or someone took the pic, removed the metadate, sent it to her?

^^^^^^^^

It's unclear, but she cared enough to respond to rumors that she is still in NYC by posting a picture of her driveway. And somehow it is a picture with no metadata suggesting that someone went to some effort to remove it.

It is possible that it is an old picture on her phone, not one sent to her, or one she just took. iPhonescan hold a huge library of images. A lot of people never delete them.

So she is invested in proving that she is in PA for some reason. Either she really is in PA or she is working hard to hide the length of her trip to New York.

At the least she is trying to control the information flow, after having as usual put way too much out there.

she lies said...

She might have someone with her in New York who is capable of removing the metadata from a photo already in her phone. A guy who has a background in security for instance.

Or she could really be in PA. The quantity of her lies and fabrications is high enough that it is hard to tell. It is fascinating to watch her scrambling though.

Out And About In Berks County PA said...

That's not much snow at all. It has even melted in her driveway. She can go run outside.

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

It didn't melt in the driveway because it never laid in the driveway. We had an inch or so on grassy surfaces, but the roads were too warm for it to stick. We're expecting some heavy squalls to go through later today with the passing of a cold front, with temperatures dropping into the teens, blustery winds and the real feel temp dropping very low. I wonder if we'll get a picture of that snow, too.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Out and About, huh? The driveway is wet. Snow falls on a driveway, then melted. Maybe it melted instantly, but it still melted.

Snow doesn't know to skip a driveway.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I don't buy a conspiracy theory other than the one about how Jason doesn't like her anymore and kicked her out of NYC the second those fried hairs dried.

MeL said...

I think out and about just meant that it didn't stick on the driveway, not that it didn't snow in the driveway....
Also making the point that there wasn't so much snow on the road that you couldn't run today..or *any* snow on thw road.

So either Kate's lying about how much snow there was or she is lying about being home, and doesn't *know* how much snow there is(not).

Either way, lies, lies, lies. Again, lying when she doesn't even have to. It's just automatic with her to lie.

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

Kate's Latest Tweet:

to run outside or not to run outside... That is the question after I saw this from my front door...??!.

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

Snow makes everything look so beautiful- on the FIRST day. After that, it loses it's charm.

Now, with that view from her front porch- how can Kate continue to grift freebees? Could she possibly be more repugnant? It's blatantly clear that she is living quite well, and that she is quite well off. How does she get away with this?

I've never seen a more selfish, more self-centered, bigger black hole in my entire life. Katie Irene is living high on the hog, laughing all the way to the bank. Yet, she has no shame grifting from people. And just as odd, people continue to offer her more & more free sh*t.

SHEEPLE & UNSUSPECTING COMPANIES- OPEN YOUR EYES! You're dealing with a con-artist, who will suck you dry for her benefit.

I think Kate made a pact with the devil...

Molly12 said...

Correct me if I’m wrong because as I get older my memory isn’t what it used to be. I thought that someone mentioned that during a speech Kate made at the Las Vegas marathon she said she trained in sub-zero temperatures. If that is the case, what is the big deal with the light dusting of snow?

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

It's picky. Everyone agrees there is not much snow and that Kate is being dramatic. What stuck to when when how and what time the kids get on the bus and whether it was 40 degrees or 42 is not important.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Molly, the big deal is she wants to make sure the haters know she isn't spending the children's money all weekend in NYC, she's at home by herself picking her nose.

We get it!

Out And About In Berks County PA said...

Out and About, huh? The driveway is wet. Snow falls on a driveway, then melted. Maybe it melted instantly, but it still melted.

Snow doesn't know to skip a driveway.

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

lol, admin! I meant that there was nothing significant to melt! Seriously, it was very strange. I was watching it. It came down first as rain and drizzle. That's why the road is wet. When it changed to snow, it stuck on the grass, but never laid for one second as snow on the driveway. But you're right, it was an instantaneous melt. There never was any snow on the driveways - no need for a plowing crew to be called out.

I would suspect, though, that the photo was taken today because other than a few days ago when we had only a dusting, we've not had snow (except on Halloween weekend) that looked like this. It appears to be a current photo because that's exactly the amount that we had overnight and that's what the roads looked like this morning.

???? said...

So either Kate's lying about how much snow there was or she is lying about being home, and doesn't *know* how much snow there is(not).

How is Kate lying about how MUCH snow there is. She tweeted "it's a snowy day."

I happen to agree with you Admin. What IS important, however, is the subject of your new post. Kate stating publicly "nothing tastes as good as thin feels". I don't personally believe she has a large number of fans, but of the few she has it seems many are teens and younger women. Given this, and the fact that she has 5 girl children of her own, this is a terribly irresponsible message to implant in their brains. She absolutely SHOULD retract it. These young teenage fans hang on her every word and belief as if it were gospel - surely she doesn't want to be responsible for the fallout that could result from her thoughtless and mindless chatter on the Internet.

As for whether she's in NYC or PA? Don't care myself, but I do find it interesting that she felt compelled to refute the non-fan accusations that she's lying...again. Despite the fact she claims never to see those tweets. If I were her, I would never put such detailed information out there regarding my whereabouts, not only to protect myself, but my kids alone at home. Secondly, I think even some of the fans are beginning to question her credibility with these lies. Someone suggested she should tweet a picture of herself on that same snowy driveway. So far, silence. Even the fans will only believe her until she is completely unbelievable.

Yes it is her continuing attempts to control information frequently by lying changing her story or very careful use of words that is fascinating.

She plays whatever line she thinks will make her look the way she wants to look and still thinks that works, but the lies have become very obvious and hard even for fans to ignore at this point.

She seems to be unable to resist the temptation to lie or misrepresent nearly everything. She is trying to write and rewrite her own life as it happens. This is very difficult to do when there is such an extensive public record and when someone is driven to add to it daily.

In good traffic. It's more like three hours, depending on traffic over the GW and Lincoln Tunnel. It's taken me as long as four hours during rush hour, and I don't drive at a snail's pace. Could she have been home this morning at 9 a.m.? Yes...if she left early enough to avoid the traffic.

Kate said that she's run in sub zero temperatures. We don't get too many of those, so it couldn't have been often. She was probably thinking anything under 32 degrees is "sub zero." It's above freezing right now...no reason at all why she couldn't run outside. It's all for drama.

TLC stinks said...

She did a shout out tweet to Fig and Olive restaurant in NYC. And she mentioned "us" in it.

JudyK said...

My first thought, upon seeing that pic, was, "What a lovely, light, brisk setting for an early-morning run!" Of course, that's assuming I'm a runner, which I am not.

As others have said, it's damage control, as usual.

As far as the weight issue, look at Demi Moore, who has gone from an extremely attractive woman to someone who resembles Olive Oyl...NOT an attractive OR sexy look.

Love the new commercial...forget which one, which shows a trim woman passing by outside diners, while looking at her reflection in store windows. They all say, "HELLO, HEALTHY!" LOVE THAT! That is the direction our commercials and advertising need to be headed. Looking healthy is sexy...looking skinny is NOT sexy.

Kate is a MORON. Also, I'm the daughter of a retired English professor with a degree in English myself, and plagiarism is still plagiarism, and changing just one word does not make it otherwise.

She has a professional driver it is Saturday and the roads are clear. Two and a half should be right on target today. If she really left New York.

You're right. Wouldn't dedicated distance runners get their butts out there no matter what kind of weather faces them? That's a big problem with Kate. Running takes discipline and effort and she has neither of those qualities. It's just so hard for her to grift running though because it's something she has to do on her own. She falls back on her treadmill story every time she says she can't run outside and thinks her people believe her.

Bill's Mom said...

I really don't care where Kate is, but having been gifted with a lot of common sense, I know when things don't pass the smell test; plus I love a mystery be it small or large. Assuming Jon has the kids this weekend and she spent the night in NYC, why would she have rushed back home? Waiting a few more hours wouldn't have cost any additional $. If she didn't spend the night in NYC and came back late last night, why would she be up so early this AM, based on the fact that she presumably drank a lot last night and that she loves to sleep in? It would appear that something is missing. Maybe things didn't go as she planned in NYC? Who knows.

Anonymous said...

The (now deceased) Duchess of Windsor had a motto, "One can never be too thin, or too rich". I think K8 would go along with that.

I do think her attitude about weight and running will impact on her daughters and she should keep that in mind because, while she may be the perfect role model to her 'fans', we are aware of her imperfections.

About the 'punking' last night, I do not agree with stalking but I did get a laugh reading "Walt" on twitter.

Ex Nurse said...

I recently read Portia de Rossi's memoir which focused on her anorexia/bulemia during the years she was on Ally McBeal. Her eating disorders were tied up with her fear and confusion about being gay and the negative effect she feared it would have on her Hollywood career.

Nevertheless, there are some parallels that can be drawn about her eating behaviors and her family dynamics and Kate. Her father died when she was nine. Her mother was very involved her career as a model, beginning at the age of 12. She encouraged Portia to keep her sexuality a secret--citing it was a privacy issue. Portia interpreted this as a shameful aspect of herself. Her mother ignored Portia's disappointments (like not getting a modeling job), and only acknowledged her successes. In other words, her mother's love was tied directly to her accomplishments--not the unconditional love that children need. 

Her extreme weight loss, from 130 lbs to 82 lbs was triggered by a sexual scene she played in Ally McBeal. She eventually routinized her eating habits, compulsively eating the same thing every day--taking in only 300 calories a day. Like Kate, she used flavored chemical sprays and ate artificially sweetened non-foods, like diet Jello sprayed with butter spray. yuk! As she lost weight, the wardrobe person cheered her on, having to alter all of her clothes every week. She was overly focused on the size of her thighs, and only felt successful when she was able to stand with her knees together without her thighs touching. The book feels like you are in her head hearing her thoughts-- It was very sick and very sad.  She spoke of how powerful she felt when she withheld food from herself and deviating from 300 calories put her into a downward spiral of self-loathing and shame.

She went into treatment after collapsing--her blood chemistries and enzymes all showed that she was breaking down her muscle for energy and that her liver and kidneys were being affected. She then engaged in compulsive eating, going from 82 lbs to 168lbs in a few months. Opposite side of the same coin. She didn't feel that she was worthy of treatment because she was no longer thin.  

During this time, she was so obsessed with food and weight, she was unable to have any kind of meaningful relationships--just like an alcoholic or addict. she met Ellen while she was recovering and subsequently came out to the world. When she was cast in Arrested Development, she told Ron Howard that she was gay--she didn't want to live a double life. She concluded the book with descriptions of a peaceful and fulfilling life that she shares with Ellen--a little too idealized, but a happy ending, nevertheless. Her family relationships also healed and her mother has apologized and acknowledged her contribution.z 

Portia has been accused of writing a how-to manual for anorexics,  and I suppose, for a few sick individuals, that may be so. But it tells the story behind so many that are in the public eye--Demi Moore, another sick soul

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

I agree. She'd be home in less than three hours, IF there were no accidents or tie-ups on the bridge or tunnel, and if she left early. I took another look at the photo, and it does appear that it was taken today. It's not an old photo from last year because you can see the tree damage from the Halloween storm, and the only other snow we've had this season was a few days ago (Kate's moon picture) and there was more snow then...more than just this dusting. We just haven't had snow - temps consistently have been in the 40s and 50s, one of the warmest winters I can remember.

Thin has a negative conotation just as fat does. Both are bad. She could say lean and healthy. It's Kate though. She doesn't think.

Audible Click said...

Kate really is a dull tool. She did a monstrous thing by tweeting that horrible Kate Moss quote. That quote was/is used by pro-ana (anorexic) websites; she just crapped on all the people who've worked so diligently to get those websites taken off the internet.

readerlady said...

It's interesting. A day or so ago, Michelle Obama said in an interview that she and the President control their daughters access to food, both in amount and type. In other words, the girls arent' allowed to snack indiscriminantly nor are they allowed much junk food. Comments are almost entirely negative, ranging from she's a fat pig herself to she's too controlling. I'll warrant that many of those negative commenters find nothing at all wrong with Kate's comment. Double standard much?

Dee said...

I doubt that either Kate's appearance or her "health and fitness" advice has much of an effect on her fans, one way or another, so I think this topic is largely beside the point.

Her few twitter fans are mostly moms who are admiring of her "mothering" skills, teens who adore the concept of her as a mother (a fantasy mom to them, presumably) and some gonad-driven, but mis-guided, men. Along with some men who seem to be gay, and go for her plastic Barbie look. (It's iconic!)

I don't think this stupid, stolen, quote has any real relevance to the damage Kate does in the world. She's old in the eyes of her tweenie and adolescent fans (mom age) and the plastic surgery and weird eating habits don't seem to make a blip with the mothers who wish they had her life or admire her ability to evade, I mean, parent, her 8 children.

Most "fans" seem enamoured of the sets of children, and her lifestyle, not Kate's body shape. A few have tweeted that they have tried to run because of Kate, but there is very little, or no, talk about wanting to be as thin as Kate. That's probably partly because she isn't actually very thin, and because her body is not high on the list of what people want of hers, or from her.

The effect of her terrible attitudes toward eating and health on her own children is something else. It's not just the girls, either. Boys can, and do, have eating disorders, and she has set every single one of those children up for a terrible relationship with food, beginning with those paper plates and her careless attitude toward what she feeds them.

Pity Party said...

I looked at the pic and am reminded that it is a beautiful piece of property. KT is so undeserving. At this point, I don't think anyone is buying into KT being a runner anymore. She found a way to fake it that is all. I think she uses that to back up her extreme weight loss which I don't believe she has obtained by running, and particularly, not by healthy dieting. That tweet was shameful but we all know there is no shame in her game.

Looks like she took the red eye drive home last night and didn't stay in NY after all. Funny how things change.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I remember that too.

Another example of Grifty's lies...sub-zero would be -1, -2, you get the idea....Caribou Maine, Michigan, Minnesota weather. She "trains" (tee-hee) in 20ish weather (good gawd...did I throw an "ish" in there?" More drama drama drama for Kate...when the Halloween Blizzard hit (you remember..3 inches) she fell apart because ALL of her trees were gone and she had to shovel snow...um, she made the kids shovel snow. Turned out a few branches were gone and the snow was gone in a couple days.

I was born and raised in the New England area.....6 inches of snow for NE natives is a "dusting"...maybe school will be delayed for 2 hours, but thats about it. Life goes on. Loose power? go play in the snow...(ditto for my cold climate sistas...we're a tough breed.

Kate is clueless. I still can't get over how she is proud of herself for wathcing the damn superbowl. (damn patriots!)

I hope Diego knew that he has to run when he's serving (helping) her.

She certainly knows how to yank her haters chain. In my life experience, revenge is not sweet, and l have felt sorry when l saw it being dished out. BUT, in Kart's case, l am salivating at the thought. I CANNOT wait till this b*tch is humbled! And l will be waiting...

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

I just had to bring this post from Teresa over to this one, it made me laugh out loud! I feel exactly the same way!

When the bankruptcy liquidators have the auction for the contents of the Konpound (whenever that day may come), I am sooooooo there. First, I am going to tap dance on her front lawn. Then I am going to successfully bid on the leather couch no matter how high it goes.

And as far as yanking the haters chains, yes that it precisely what she thinks she is doing. In her mind, she thinks she's sticking it to US, but what she is really doing is sticking it to HERSELF, twofold, threefold really, if she thinks we are jellus of her scarecrow hair. Does Coupon Cabin really want their thrifty penny pinching mother of eight blathering on about getting her hair done in an expensive NYC salon? And going on & on about her fancy dinner afterwards? Comped or not (and I don't think hair or dinner were comped this time) it's not the image they're going for. Creepy and law bending as it is, she's also been outted as using an out of state limo service to get there. This is what the sheeple need to see and hear so they can make an informed choice when they're thinking of taking money from their own tight budgets to send Kate a gift. Or consider spending many thousands of dollars going on a cruise with Kate. They need to see that Kate thinks nothing of dropping $1,000+ on a limo to get her hair done in NYC. So yank away, you orange, botoxed, nipped, tucked and box-o-wine pickled biotch. You are going to ruin this gig with CC just like you ruined all your other gigs, plus, alienate the tiny handful of fans you have left. Where's Zondervan? Where's Proctor & Gamble? Where's Health Tex? Where's the Sandwich Council where you alone invented cutting sandwiches on the diagonal? Where's Kmart? By the end of the year, we'll be adding CC to the list. Because this woman has absolutely no clue as to how to be an employee or a team player.

On another note, I wanted to add how proud I am of everyone here and of course our fearless leader Admin :) in regards to how you've all handled the recent shit stirring. I don't get to post as often these days, but I read faithfully everyday during my lunch at work. It seems to me that along with our friend "oh yes she does" there seems to be another troll with a "calling card." For months, a troll posts from time to time always claiming "no wonder this blog is losing so many posters." They probably spelled losing 'loosing' though(lol) This is THE most definitive non-fan KG blog, with hundreds and hundreds of posts breaking down precisely and intelligently, the method to Kate's madness, the way she operates her career of pro grifting and blowing the lid off her lies. Therefore, it only makes sense shit stirrers would try to come here and get us to turn on each other. Obviously, a blog which receives 500-700+ posts per topic is NOT losing posters or interest. Nice try though... thanks for playing trolls, go find another bridge to crawl under. {{Hugs}} to everyone here who smelled trolls and didn't let them faze us!

"Oh yes" has been busy on another blog, and has been everything from having a brother who was an FBI agent, to seeing Kate every day at the bus stop, to being an insider at the Gosselin household, knowing where (and when) Steve sleeps, with a different name for each post. The calling cards are always there. I don't think anyone takes her seriously. It's actually amusing.

LaLaLandNoMore said...

Kate is still seeing herself as the "stah" who deserves to have star treatment. This includes: Professional drivers, over the top hair treatments, fancy restaurants regular people cannot afford, etc. The list is great for this person who suffers from real insecurity. Who does that? Rubbing regular folks noses in her expensive life style. She needs to be "dropped like a hot potato" by all! Haters and followers alike need to wake up and realize that we might be "feeding the monster." My precious brother has died and I need a break from this horrible woman's drama. Best wishes to all. Thanks, Admin.

JudyK said...

LaLaLand, I am so very sorry to read of your brother's passing.

Yes, it is hard to read about this horrid woman's narcissistic entitlement and lack of appreciation for all she has undeservedly been given, in the light of some real-life, REAL drama and problems some of us are dealing with.

Please accept my condolences.

I researched the pro ana boards years ago. Almost every of of the posts that that "nothing tastes as good as skinny feels" in their tag line.
I'm sure kate saw this on a magnet somewhere and thought it was clever but it is very irresponsible for her to tweet this knowing her target audience.

Although anorexia is a disease, a lot of normal girls start with a simple diet. It takes off from there, its simliar to addiction. it creeps up on you.. And when people are encouraging of it (ie kates quote) it can really take off and end up going way to far.

I used to be in shock by what i read on the pro ana boards. The girls posting there were very celeb obsessed and would post celeb pics and quotes as their "motto" and "thinspiration."

Kate is too stupid to understand the nuances of her actions, which is why she is better just keeping her mouth shut.

"SHEEPLE & UNSUSPECTING COMPANIES- OPEN YOUR EYES! You're dealing with a con-artist, who will suck you dry for her benefit."

Kate's not unlike the televangelists who do the same thing. They have their following; their flock sends money. In the end, after the good reverends have been exposed, many realized they have been conned. Others still support them, reasoning that everyone is human and makes mistakes and they will be forgiven. I think that this is exactly what is going to happen in the continuing Kate-sheeple drama. Some of the flock will leave, while others will continue to defend her.

Supposedly Kate (and Steve) stayed at the Essex House last night. Kate has often spoken about her security "team," which has dwindled down to one person (if there every really was more than one). Wouldn't you think that this security person would make sure that when they registered, it would be under another name, especially when Kate tweets her whereabouts for the entire internet world to see and followers know that the Essex is her hotel of choice?

Either her security team is slipping up on the job, or they did register under another name. If the latter is true, why did the concierge disclose the fact that they were staying there? The Essex House is popular among celebrities, and certainly their staff would be trained not to reveal the names of their guests.

I just can't get over how gullible her fans are. She implies that she ran with the snow being on her "nose and eyelashes". She makes it sound like she ran during a blizzard, when the snow had already stopped and it was just a dusting that is probably gone by now.

She'll never close her twitter account-she needs to feed off the gullibility of her fans. Without her "tweethearts" she is nothing and that is what scares her the most.

Some of the tweets from her tweeties are very humorous. The ones I love best are the ones that state what big fans they are, they've watched the show from day one, yet they then ask "how old are the kids now?". You would think such a "devoted" fan would know that.

Disordered eating patterns are legion in my family. We have people who have or have had anorexia, bulimia, or are morbidly obese. (I'm "lucky" enough to have been each at varying points in my lifetime. Yay.)

I'm convinced that her messages about food--all of 'em, not just her most recent tweet--are setting the children up for serious food issues in the future. As much as I'd like to shake the woman and say, "You idiot, you have five girls who are looking to you as a role model!", I can't help but feel sorry for Kate, in a way.

She has NO FREAKIN' IDEA how dangerous her food issues are. She thinks it's perfectly sensible to make comments like, "nothing tastes as good as skinny feels." She thinks it's healthy and normal to short-ration the kids, eat fake, fat-free "food" herself, and so on. I'm mad about what she's doing to the kids, but I know that she really can't help it because she's sick, not to mention ignorant of modern food science.

Anonymous said...

I'd also like to add that Kate likely has very extreme opinions about food. She probably thinks that her choices consist of either eating fake, fat-free "food," OR eating deep-fried butter wrapped in bacon--either or, black or white, one extreme or the other.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Also remember when Kate ws caught at McDonalds?

She is trying so hard to keep up the facade of skinny thin eating but couldn't take it anymore eventually.

The fact is, it's FINE to indulge at McDonalds once in awhile, whatever. But the lies about how perfect her eating is are obnoxious.

Dwindle said...

Kate's 'thin' comment doesnt surprise anyone. She has always been very proud of her mental illness and has worn her self-harm behaviors as a badge of honor. She is trying to hurt someone else with these behaviors; since this pre-dates the divorce, I am betting it has nothing to do with her children's daddy. Some other person/people she is trying to hurt by showing them how painfully she lives her life.

Not fit to raise children, that's for sure. And no one cares.

The (now deceased) Duchess of Windsor had a motto, "One can never be too thin, or too rich". I think K8 would go along with that.

The witch did say at one time something to the effect that "can you ever have too much money?"

Admin, totally agree that we've done enough (too much) blathering about certain things and people seem to get 'off point' as to the important part of her usual mistakes and missteps. It's NOT the little details, it's the WHOLE premise of what she does that is so wrong, irritates so much and should be thrown in her face at every given chance. Since we know she reads here, KATE: if you don't understand some of the big words, look them up. You've got many hours a day free what with your kids in school or on the bus and no job cutting into your daily duties of ... nothing.

With the way Kate controls those kids, thinking it makes her a so-called organized super mom (not) I can see those kids being prone to ED too.

There are many reasons why an eating disorder develops, but it usually stems from control issues in their life. (quote from link) http://www.treatmentsolutionsnetwork.com/blog/index.php/2009/08/10/loss-of-control-with-eating-disorders/

I am really surprised Kate hasn't tried to use that phrase as her own, from Weight Watchers campaign with Duchess of York Sara Ferguson talking about outrunning paps and losing weight which WW dropped after Princess Diana died.

Katie Cry-duh said...

Kate doesn't have to worry about being too rich or too thin, so she can say a big "phew!" there. All this tweeting about running and being thin and she just looks so pathetic and insecure. Oh, Kate, you flat-buttocked fool, didn't you get the memo? You are NOT hot, it's not in the cards for you. Your attempts at being sexy are laughable and result in you looking like a cross dressing man. The only evidence that you are a woman is the generous camel toe you insist on showing while trying to look smoking hot. Don't you get it? All people think of when they see you is that you are s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d out from birthing all those kids? You are not sexy. You are thin, for you, but need to give your plastic surgeon credit for much of that. If you really did run, your body would show it, and it doesn't. Say hi to your thigh to ankle cellulite for me

Katie Cry-duh said...

Those kids may be prone to eating disorders, but you what else they're prone to? Being overweight. Look at both of their parents; their default is being plump. Remember when one of the kids had an alarming weight gain last year? Did she really grow out of it or did Kate make sure she didn't stay that way?

Teresa said...

Barbee. I found the YT video of Kreider on The View Unfortunately, the last 15 seconds or so was cut ourt where she said that. But it's still sickening watching her lie. If you can't stand to listen to her lies, go to 2:15 mark and watch her lie about "kids playing in front of camera" and how hard it is to be a "single mom"...blech! Joy and the other idiot ( who thought the world was flat) are totally buying into Kreider's lies.

http://omg.yahoo.com/news/leonardo-takes-coffee-green-154900471.html
Excerpt: "...starting this month you can do just that, by purchasing specially marked bags of La Colombe Torrefaction coffee.
The acclaimed coffee roaster has recently partnered with The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation by donating 100 percent net-profit of a new, ultra high-end coffee line, Lyon. With DiCaprio's support to ensure a sustainable future for the planet, along with La Colombe Torrefaction earth conscious methods to producing their product, the partnership is a match made in green heaven.
Todd Carmichael, CEO of La Colombre says, "[We] employ over 100 million people worldwide ... and the impact we are having in Haiti alone has changed the lives of thousands of farmers."

@Kateplusmy8 PLEASE answer my ? about which charity ur cruise supports. My daug want for bd but we are strong supp of charity where $$ go to

Apparently this poor sheeple thinks that the proceeds from the entire cruise go to a charity. Nobody bothered to tell her that there's a $10 fee to get into the charity dinner and that it's only those proceeds that are going to charity - and that it will be whatever charity Kate decides. So if only 25 fans show up for the cruise, the charity gets $250.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

It's so dumb to hold out on what the charity is too. Kate probably hasn't even given it 2 seconds' thought.

Apparently she doesnt understand it would be a selling point to say come on the cruise oh and you'll also be giving to a great charity (insert charity here). Instead of just you're going to charity.

That sheep is more discerning than most, she actually wants to know what she is giving her money to before committing, other than the Bank of Kate. Good for her.

You are so right. I called about some details of the cruise, and I had a hard time getting that little bit of information. I asked what charity, and was told that they had no idea - Kate would decide at a later date. It's $10 to get into the dinner, and of course, they want you to give more to the charity. I thought...gee, why not make that a selling point to promote the cruise. Pin her down and decide on the charity so you can play it up.

That whole thing is so amateur-ish!!

Not enough cool-sounding activities with Kate.
Not open enough about all the hidden fees.
Hasn't committing to a charity yet which would be a great selling point. Red Cross, etc.
Too much begging people to go.
Adding lame activities after the fact looks desperate.
Giving Kate too much of an out to get out of things and you won't get your money back.
Not enough time to come up with the money to pay for it.
Too many promises from Kate make it sound too good to be true. I.e. we'll shout to each other in the hall--yeah sure even the sheeple won't fall for that.
Kids are going, kids aren't going, flip flopping.

anger issues kate said...

Kate's charity will probably be the Koala bear. Remember she was pushing that for a while.

I am sorry to hear another singer, dies,cause of leeches that enable her to drink and take drugs, who would not say NO! to her. These are the same kind of people, who killed Michael Jackson and Elvis and many others. This is the down side of fame. When your album flops, your TV show is canceled, you are not popular any more, your money is gone, you are a has-been, forgotten, unless you have a good support system, this is what happens to you. Some do weather the storm, and come out alright, and move on, do something else, or go private. A lot can't make the transition from singer to actor, or accept that they are not popular any more. Like Kate who is tryin to hang on to that fleeting fame, so use to the high lifestyle, that she can not come down or want to come down. I would not want to be her , when the shit hits the fan. She will come down hard. If Kate is drinking a little now, who is to say, that is the direction she is heading. Most stars start that way, a little drink here a little drink there, go to NYC and drink, away from kids drink. JMO Time will tell.

They are still not saying what shore excursion is included in the cruise - if it's in Mexico, Jamaica, or on the private island. Fans need to know how much to expect to pay for the shore excursions. You can go to the RC website, look at the excursions and the prices, and decide where you want to go, but they need to know which one is included (FREE) with Kate romping on the beach. It's most likely Haiti, since it's a beach easily accessible from where the cruise docks, but still, cruisers have a right to know that.

Fame is one of the most fascinating things in my opinion, how some people are able to get through it fine and others like Whitney it just goes so terribly, horribly wrong.

And this just goes to how unprofessional and stupid Kate is. As a celeb she should demand that her cruise be professional. She should have final approval on everything. She always tries to play dumb, and that's DUMB. She should be involved or have people working for her who don't accept anything but the best. She shouldn't accept anything less than perfection. Same with her book signing the way she just allowed it to go to shit with no advertising, very little people there, etc. She is helpless. It is frustrating being around a celeb who demands perfection, but the fact is, that is how they succeeded.

She needs to take control of things. At the end of the day, the celebs that expect the best and only the best of anything they put their name on are the ones that make it.

Kate should think of herself as her "work product." IF you wouldn't turn out a half ass job at a real mediocre work, you shouldn't turn out a half ass representation of yourself.

Kate should think of herself as her "work product." IF you wouldn't turn out a half ass job at a real mediocre work, you shouldn't turn out a half ass representation of yourself.
________________________

Admin, this truth should be self-evident, but we all know that Kate turns out a half-assed job in everything she does: being a mother, blogging, maintaining a website, etc. She is incapable of any kind of introspection like this because she believes she is the center of the universe and can do no wrong.

All I can say is Whitney Houston was a person a human being.

So let not judge what she used to do she did drugs but she also did whole lot of good of people with her music. I know it inspired me.

Anonymous said...

I can't believe you people. Whitney was such an incredible woman. Yes she got into drugs for many reasons but she was trying to recover. HERE YOU ARE COMPARING HER TO KATE. She is nothing like Kate. This is a really sad situation and noone knows what happened yet. The cause of death hasn't been ruled anything yet so please respect her family and keep your theories to yourself. Let this amazing woman who knew her biggest demons were herself and let her rest in peace. Let her family deal with this in peace. For once give this family your condolences and stop making up stories.

Oh, Whitney, Whitney, what a wreck she was. What a fall from grace. I can't believe she was left alone in that state.

She was with her daughter and body guards I believe.

Where's the compassion? said...

I agree that the speculation and especially the judgment of Whitney is shameful so soon after her death. (Oh Whitney, Whitney what a wreck she was....how condescending). No one chooses addiction, no one hopes to grow up and commit suicide, if that's really what happened. To imply that she chose to be a wreck somehow indicates callousness, ignorance about the disease of addiction, and self-righteousness.

gotyournumberKate said...

In response to Piers Morgans tweet saying Whitney Houstons rendition of the Star Spangled Banner was the best ever Kate tweeted this....

@piersmorgan @RealRomaDowney Hands down. I agree! Gave me chills..!!!

No sympathy or condolences to the family, only "I" and "me". Hands down the most self absorbed woman ever. I have to wonder how many singers Kate actually watched sing The Star Spangled Banner at the Super Bowl. She's such a farce.

cathyn518 said...

I hope that if anything good comes out of this awful loss, Whitney's death will result in seeing addiction as the slow death it is. There is no doubt that addiction is a terrible disease but what is being reported already is that prescription drugs were found on the scene. Prescription drugs probably kill more people now than street drugs. Just because a Doctor prescribes a drug does not mean it is any less lethal if abused. You are always walking a fine line when you take narcotics, sleeping pills, benzos. The potential for addiction and abuse is enormous with these drugs.

Apple Vacations. I am back home (sigh) from an island trip into the Midwest cold. I said I would post a report on an Apple trip. I was part of a larger group and did not make my own arrangements.

Our paperwork was detailed and efficient. All topics were covered with easy to follow instructions. (What to pack, customs requirements...)

All-inclusive was well defined. There were many options. Costs for additional tours and activities were clearly outlined.

All in all, we had a wonderful trip with the umbrella of Apple Vacations to make out of the country travel easier.

Didn't take my laptop, so I will be reading and catching up here. Don't want to miss anything you ladies contributed!

Layla said...

This is a bit off topic, but it looks like Jon gets the kids on Fridays after school now. It seemed like it was only Sat and Sun before. Nice to see him get to spend a little more time with them. Of course, it's a selfish move on her part--she doesn't have to deal with them that day, and doesn't have to pay a nanny to do it for her. But good for him and for the kids.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I never said she chose addiction although she did make choices she is responsible for. I feel horribly sorry it ended this way. Drug addicts make conscious choices along the way and so did she.

Marie said...

Don't know about anyone here but I find it terribly wrong, a little rude and even so obnoxious how Kate manages to take someone's death a make it all about herself.

So what if you grew up listening to her hits? How does it truly impact Kate to have chills and such, can she imagine how Whitney's family and personal friends feel? Probably a lot more grief that Kate will ever know.

The sad thing? That Kate sees nothing wrong with what she said. As long as she can attach and include herself on almost every level of anyone, insert herself where she doesn't belong, and as long as her "friends" tell her crap like she's the same, she still needs to do what she's doing...Kate is only going to get worse.

Westcoaster said...

Can't see how she can get much worse. It's all about her, always. So today she will tweet about Whitney Houston, and go on about how sad and depressed SHE is. What a cow.

a coincidence is not the same as an accident said...

Every time I read kate's "thin" comment at the top of this post, it bugs me that she is plagiarizing, on top of the obvious fact that it's an idiotic and dangerous thought to put in the minds of her fans, who are too dense themselves to realize what a moron this woman is. I don't think the woman has ever had an original thought in her life; she simply copies others.

The statement is hilarious, though, coming from a woman who will never be able to change the fact that she is "big-boned" and will always be shaped like a tree stump or Sponge Bob Squarepants, no matter how much weight she loses. She will always appear to be a male cross-dressing badly, than Kate Moss.

NJGal51 said...

@138...I see Kate is still trying to attach herself to stars to make her feel relavent. Tthe press are not beating down her door for a statement on how she feels about Whitney's death. Her answering his tweet is the same as my answering his tweet...it means nothing and he probably won't even know who she is even if he sees the tweet. I think the only reason she saw that tweet is because she's attached herself to R. Downey in the hopes of getting another TV job. Kate is pathetic and grasping at straws but I guess her sheeple wll be impressed that she tweeted P. Morgan. I'm guessing that she was in her cups last night and listening to Whitney did strike some sort of chord with her but, as always, she has to make it all about herself. Loser.

chefsummer said...

We all know Kate is about Kate no matter what happens.

I say lets all just pray for Whitney's daughter that was with her that night also pray for her family.

Out And About In Berks County PA said...

What? Kate didn't tweet her tweethearts for advice about running today? We had nasty squalls go through last night. Roads were miserable, accidents everywhere, and the windchill dropped to one degree (real feel is now 11 degrees). Winter has arrived, at least for today. This week it's back up in the 40s and then 50s.

I would have expected her be pulling her hair out, trying to decide if she should run inside or outside.

Kate tweeted:

kateplusmy8
Preparing to make our valentine boxes... This mom is home alone doing this...so we are all ready...
===================

Doing what alone? Arranging letters? How tough is that? Exhausting, I'm sure. This will mean an early bedtime for her tonight. I hope the kids are going to make their boxes, and not their mother!

Oh Whitney, you were so good. What memories, right everyone?
It must be very, very hard to have it all, be the IT girl, on top of the mountain and then have to deal with all of the adoration and a lot of money going away.
I remember watching Whitney's interview with Oprah. It was a huge deal and a two day special. Whitney looked...ok. Not terrific. She was nervous and looked to be on something right then and there speaking with O.
When asked about her "sobriety", she told O that no more cocaine and crack, but she still drinks and smokes weed. The woman never attained sobriety and recovery. Her performances were dismal and really just sad to watch.
I'm glad Kate is taking advantage of the kids being with Jon and doing their Valentine's today instead of "staying up all night". Can she even keep track of her lies??
BTW, could she be any more stupid than to tweet that she's home alone?

Midnight Madness said...

Funny how we remember certain things about people. Whitney was one of the few people I ever heard who sang the Star Spangled Banner correctly. It's ..."oh say does that Star Spangled BAN NER ER yet wave," NOT...Star Spangled BA A NER ER yet wave." It goes from a "D" (BA) to an "F" (NER) without that little extra note in between.

She stayed true to the original version. I'll always remember that.

I agree that she is just tweeting to PM trying to look like she's in the "in" crowd. And I have doubts that she was even watching or paying attention to the Super Bowl, she was what, 15 or 16 at the time? But maybe I'm wrong, a lot of people were watching because of the situation, or maybe she saw it on youtube or something.

I was sad to hear the news about Whitney, as I have been sad to see her decline in the past years. Not only did she have the most stunning voice, but my husband was serving in the Gulf at that time during the war and I was pregnant, and her rendition of the national anthem brings back very strong feelings even today when I hear it. I remember it like it was yesterday.

Gosselin8ComeFirst said...

I will say that Whitney had great talent, was grounded at one point, and was a beautiful woman. There apparently was something missing at some point, as she became addicted to crack/alcohol/prescription pain meds and we will probably never know the whole truth about her life.No matter what, addiction is sad, as it does destroy people's lives, no matter who you are or what station you have in life.

Kate, onthe other hand, never had any talent and simply chose to use her kids (before the tups were born) and still is to this day.

Regardless, in retrospect, to me, it just shows that anyone can become addicted to drugs/alcohol once their spirit is destoyed, no matter what you do for a living. And I do find this sad that no one was able to intervene, although interventions are often not successful, if the recepient is not willing to receive the message.

I don't think Kate/Whitney are a good comparison on the issue of substance abuse as Whitney had actual talent. Kate never did and never will. She has milked it from day one and put in as little effort as possible. She simply is a woman who chose to market herself as a woman who had eight kids by choice, and thinks this entitles her to be a "star."

When I get to my office, I'll source the info.

Someone known as "Coupon Diva Desirae," apparently from TLC's "Extreme Couponing," just tweeted Kate:

@CouponDivaDes
Coupon Diva Desirae
@Kateplusmy8 Hey Kate! Cannot wait to see our episode on #lifechangers :)

I Googled her and found the following:

I Have Some Exciting News!
FEBRUARY 12, 2012 BY DESIRAE AT 1:45 PM
THIS POST MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS. READ MY DISCLOSURE POLICY.

I have some very exciting news to share with ya’ll that I have been secretly keeping for a few weeks!
Recently I flew out to Los Angeles, California to be on the Dr Drew Life Changers show!
It was an amazing experience, with amazing staff, and of course the one and only Dr Drew. I have always loved Dr. Drew because I am a Teen Mom show lover & his segment with them was always my favorite. Being able to meet him & be on his show was an awesome opportunity! I can’t forget to mention that while I was in the dressing room I got ready with Kate Gosselin and she was a very genuine down to earth mom just like I would have thought. We chatted about kids, diapers, and of course coupons. She ended up filming her show right before me & it will be with my episode! She is a coupon blogger now for CouponCabin.com
So I finally get to release this information with you and let you know it will air February 22nd at 3pm EST.

I guess we can conclude that Kate's appearance on Drew is somehow connected to her coupon blogging. How sad! She's having to share the spotlight with other coupon people. But as we know from the clips that have been released, she just had to go off-topic--and back to familiar territory--to bash her ex.

I think she is now approaching reaching the level of "pathetic" former reality star Kate Gosselin. A bit ironic (intentionally?) that her castmate on this episode of Dr. Drew is currently starring in TLC's new "smash hit."

Oh, Kate tweeted she was home alone because she is not. Steve is with her. There is no doubt she is doing damage control from being punked over the weekend. And if she is home alone she is more than stupid to tweet it to the world. But again, Steve is with her.

And didn't Kate say that she would spend the entire night making valentines for her kids. She can't keep her stories straight.

And she tweeted that her friends say she is the same ole Kate. Liar! Her only friend is Jamie and we all know that she said that Kate has changed a lot. And none of it is for the good per the RV episode.

And Piers Morgan tweeted that Whitney no singer could top Whitney Houston when she sang the "Star Spangled Banner" and of course Kate tweeted him back and included Roma Downey with:

Kateplusmy8@piersmorgan @RealRomaDowney Hands down. I agree! Gave me chills..!!! Kate is so transparent. She wants to be on Piers show and wants Mark Burnett to give her a reality show. It really is so sad. I hope Roma sees right through her.

Anonymous said...

On CNN last night, Piers Morgan was reading tweets from many 'celebrities' who were commenting on Whitney Houston's death. I guess K8 didn't catch on until this morning, hoping that he will include her tweet next time he is 'on'.

----------------------
DEFINITIONS: what I see and have experienced.
TROLLS
1)One who states an opposing opinion or disagreement and gets attacked by old timers who seem to think it's their place to reprimand.
2)One who gets labeled because their comment is misunderstood by others who jump to conclusions because their emotions got ahead of their understanding.
3)One who's comments are moderated while the old timer attackers comments remain, regardless of which rule they break or how mean they are. I'm not the only one this happened to. If you read back you'll see other comments of the same.
4)One who is labeled a s@#$stirer and is told to leave when it's the old timers that keep the mean comments and accusations going.
5)One who's opposing comments are picked apart for grammar and style flaws by those who have been lucky enough to get a higher education or were raised different because their parents were educated.

ANONYMOUS: Not always but more likely than not, one who was a former poster but felt the need to take on this name because of the
above.

MYSELF:
1)A long time reader, who does like the laughs and up to date info. about Kate.
2)A few month poster that has been very hurt, yes to my own stupidity for letting it affect me, not only myself but new posters who wanted to be a part and thought it would be safe to post here.

Admin., I know I probably should have taken this to you through your email but I hope that those here that behave the way I've said above understand how hurtful it really is. If you think someone is a troll, don't comment back, they'll go away. Responding justifies a returned comment. If they are not a troll, that's one person who will continue to feel safe posting here and all can enjoy. I know "old timers" lumps everyone. I think saying names would be worse.

Correct me if I am wrong but didn't Whitney Houston sing the National Anthem at the Olympics not hte Superbowl?

BINGO! My personal response to trolls is to ignore. This is perhaps the second time I have mentioned the subject in (I think) 1.5 years of posting (intermittently).
I don't agree with everything that is said here - even some comments by "old-timers". But I go past and keep on reading. That is the nature of a blog, a place where people can express themselves - hopefully they do it respectfully.

Hearing others opinions is important to me, what would be the point if everyone agreed with me? I am, what some would call, a yellow-dog democrat. How boring would life be if I never heard an opposing opinion?

BUT there is a difference between someone offering their own differing opinion and someone who is here solely to shit-stir.

Either way, I just read it and move on.

Friendly warning said...

This is an warning for any of you that read at any of the fan blogs. Don't go there without a proxy. One of the fan blogs has a very sophisticated tracker and they are collecting a lot of personal information on people. One person was simply reading there, not posting, and they used her IP to figure out where she worked, where she lived, and they have tried to out her. JUST FOR READING!!

The blog I am speaking of has a tracker that is so complex it will actually track your laptop, not just your IP. You could log on from home and then later from your workplace. The next time you log on and read at the fan site they can see a history of where you have been- then have have your workplace!!!

I know it's confusing and I am sorry. Trust me, there are some unstable people out there. My advice is to stay away from the fan blogs but if you must read there, use a reliable proxy.

And you know this...HOW? Photos? Someone saw them together at Target? How do you know that he is not home with his family right now? Of course she is stupid to say that she's alone, security wise. However, Kate has a flair for word games. How do we know her "alone" doesn't mean that the kids aren't around, and therefore, she's "alone" (without the kids)?

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

 It would be a good exercise for Kate to, at least occasionally, respond to news about another celebrity with a sentiment that does not contain "me, my, or I".  I don't think that it is unusual for people to connect, in some personal  way, with shared experiences upon news of the death of public figure--especially one that is so beloved and young.  We wouldn't think twice if this was a quote from Oprah, said as a genuine emotional response--it would be seen as empathic, not as a ploy to garnish attention for herself.

However, this is Kate, who 100% of the time, inserts herself into everything and anything. She thinks that fame, love and money are limited --she must grab as much for herself as she can, and when others have  it, there is less for her. She is hanging on to fame by a thread. She is greed and envy personified and it is hideous and despicable to witness.

Nobody else's fault, but her own, that so many have such a cynical view of her. 

Grifter Overboard said...

From TMZ:

Whitney Houston's 18-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, was just rushed to Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles ... and it's her second trip to the hospital since her mother passed away last night ... TMZ has learned.

According to our sources ... Bobbi was taken out of the Beverly Hilton on a stretcher (see photo above). It's the same hotel where Whitney was found dead.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ police and fire responded to a call for a medical emergency, but would not confirm who was transported.

According to our sources, Bobbi Kristina went to the hospital last night as well, but was not transported via ambulance. We're told she was "hysterical, exhausted and inconsolable."

NJ, I don't know how old timers perceive things but I could care less if you have been here two days or two years, everyone is expected to follow the rules. Just because something isn't deleted doesn't mean I approve. Sometimes I am not around to rein things in.

There has been, undoubtedly, a number of comments in recent months that are shit stirring personal attacks. As a result, other comments that were not meant to be have been confused for being a part of the movement. I'm sorry for that, but understand some people are sensitive.

I completely disagree that we attack grammar/spelling here. Please point me to a post that did that and I will delete it. We may attack Kate for this and her few followers, but not the posters here. I don't care if you want to make typos/misspellings/grammatical errors. I have done the same. It is a blog, not a thesis.

I agree with your "sediment" and others. Ignore the trolls or ignore comments you THINK are trolling. Believe me I know how hard it is especially when you are the on attacked and I'm certainly guilty of responding sometimes. But if we ignore, that way, if it's not a troll, you haven't made anyone feel bad by calling the a troll, and if it is, you haven't given them attention. If something is so egregious it must be removed, email me.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

For example, 135 is a comment that although makes a perfectly good point, sets a very bad tone because regardless what they said after, they started out with the condescending, superior, snotty, "I can't believe you people."

Regardless what this person said after or how good the points were, right out of the gate I've tuned them out. Someone who is looking to seriously discuss something will have more respect than that.

People here who know how to get along don't start off comments that way. There are plenty of different viewpoints that are made respectfully. It is a personal attack, period. Whether you want to call it a troll, a shit-stirrer, or just plain rude, it doesn't matter, but that is why someone said "fishing for trolls" and they are perfectly reasonable to say that after that comment. I wouldn't call it a troll myself, but it's justified to say that comment is disrupting the flow.

There were a few other comments that made the same point that didn't do that.

Marie m. said...

Read a lot her but don't post much. After reading about what Underwalt did to Kate while she was in New York, I had to post. What he did was way over the line and in my opinion Walt is a very sick man and needs an intervention from his family. It is not healthy to be so obsessed with someone - whether you love them or hate them. If I was Kate I would be afraid of Walt, just as I would be afraid of Milo. I really don't understand this need to know every move Kate makes and don't understand either her need to broadcast to the world her comings and goings. I hope nothing horrible comes out of this and wish that people would temper their desire to peep into Kate's world on a daily basis.

To clarify Piers Morgan tweeted: Nobody, I repeat NOBODY, ever sang the Star Spangled Banner live as well as this: http://bit.ly/EXL5 (This was at the Superbowl XXV in 1991.)

Kateplusmy8Kate Gosselin@piersmorgan @RealRomaDowney Hands down. I agree! Gave me chills..!!!

Admin. I can only guess that Kate wanted Piers to read her tweet agreeing with Piers on the air like he did numerous other celebrities last night/early morning. I think Kate was afraid that Piers would not know who she was from her twitter handle,@Kateplusmy8,so that is why Kate also included @RomaDowney twitter handle with hers. I think it is so desperate for Kate to have done this. I wonder how Roma felt being used by Kate to be noticed by Piers.

In reference to post #178 (Robin's Nest) who referenced my post#171, I was stating my opinion that Kate went out of her way to say that she was home alone. No, I don't have photos, I didn't see them at Target, etc. I found it very strange that she wrote that she was home alone. We know that Steve was with her yesterday so isn't it very likely that he is with her today. The kids are with their Dad this weekend. There was no need to jump all over me. It was my opinion. That is the point of this blog. To state's one's opinion. And I am NOT a troll. I was one of the first to blog as "Maggie" when this blog started in 2009. When I wrote my post #171 I was not even thinking about Admin. at all. And I resent you calling me a shit-stirrer. I am anything but. I have high regards for this blog and Admin.

BUT there is a difference between someone offering their own differing opinion and someone who is here solely to shit-stir
--------------------
Yes I agree with you there. There are definitely those who want to cause trouble, but there have many times people weren't trolls and because others got tired and didn't want to read their opinion/defense, they got labeled and told to leave. Especially if it had to do with religion.

I don't expect anyone to agree or even believe my way. What I would like is to comment and not feel belittled or inferior by those who just don't want to read my apposing opinion or definition. If I'm wrong for commenting back to defend myself from others comments, then tell me nicely. Don't label me as a troll, s@#$stirer, sheeple,etc. Admin. has been kind enough to bring to things to my attention why some have said what they have. I apologized and moved on.

It is absolutely wrong to take others name and cause problems. I have never done that, yet I have been accused of it. I have even been criticized for apologizing for my misunderstandings. Just when people come on and we all made amends, someone comes on and says to the other one, I don't believe them(me), I smell a sheeple/troll and here we go again.

I can't tell you why, because Admin. says she doesn't do it so I'll have to accept it, but when I post things defending or explaining myself, they don't show up, but the accusations, labeling, and just plain mean ones are posted. How am I supposed to interpret that. If I'm wrong, my bad and I'm sorry. I'm willing to change as long as I feel safe.

I will say one more thing and then move on. I tried to stay true to keeping my name but when the above happened, stupid me.. I know, I cried for quite a long time. I was going through a lot of things at that time and I felt I could join in and have some nice people to at least talk with. STUPID ME! My bad. I swore I would never reveal myself again. For some reason, as anonymous it didn't feel personal, Which it probably wasn't anyway, but it felt like it. Some would greet each other and care for personal issues and I wanted to be a part. To my identity name demise. Hence anonymous.

I'll move on now. I hope all are willing to play nice and move on. Including myself.

sorry, didn't realize it is so long.

I remembered today that Kathy Griffin had a whole standup routine about Whitney Houston's appearance on Oprah (which the truth is was very funny) and so I googled to see if Kathy Griffin had said anything about this.

She said he wouldn't be making any more Whitney jokes and that at the end of the day she was a big fan and she was awesome. That's what's so interesting about Kathy Griffin is she is actually pretty huge fans of these people, her whole standup is coming from the perspective of a huge fan.

There is something that just seems so much more sincere about most of these celebs speaking out about that as opposed to Kate, especially with her transparent copying other celebs on her tweet.

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

For what it's worth, I agree with you. I absolutely think that Steve is at the house with her. Besides the comment about being alone (which I think is a huge lie), the near silence on Twitter today is a dead giveaway. She always goes quiet or nearly so when she is with Steve. If she was really alone, I think she would be tweeting non-stop like she always does.

NJ, I'm not understanding this. THe blog your are describing is not the blog I know.

When did we ever talk about religion? Huh? I can't even remember the last time that was brought up other than to mention in passing Kate goes to church. I don't' think we've ever once had any kind of serious debate about religion. That has zero to do with what this blog is about.

You're acting like your posts are always deleted. I rarely delete posts. I mean rarely. I never remember deleting a post from you if you have always gone by NJ, NOT ONCE. Truly, posts are deleted once in a blue moon. It is very rare I have to cut off a fight. It's been ages. Now, we have a spam folder that is very obnoxious that I haven't cleaned out in awhile but other than that, that's not what happens here.

Finally, if you posted all this as anonymous, then your comments may have a slightly higher risk of being thought suspicious and possibly deleted. That is rule number 2, it is a very simple rule, so it's a little hard to come in here, expect to be welcomed with open arms, and yet right out of the gate break a clear rule. Follow all the rules and you might find it easier to be here.

Maybe if you could show me specific examples of posts you made that were deleted, I could better understand why they were deleted and explain it to you. You seem like a nice person and I'd like to have you here, but what you are describing is so far off the mark that I'm a little dumbstruck.

Maggie, Kate is so slow on the uptake. CNN had tweets from celebrities posted LAST NIGHT.

That's Kate for ya. Next time when a big celeb dies she'll know to jump right in there right away.

How early did she go to bed anyone last night? I feel like I heard this news around dinner time. She is so hopelessly behind and out of touch, it's just pathetic.
