Kate on Sirius radio with Christine and Molly's 'Broadminded' show

Shockingly, Kate talks about bra shopping for the twins and discussing the facts of growing up with them, but avoids personal questions about herself such as when she lost her virginity.


Hollywood Gossip


According to listeners (thanks!), among some other topics Kate is hitting from D.C.:

Kate loves tampon talk! Especially about her girls! 
But her virginity? Now that's too personal.
  • Kate said she doesn't let the kids get on the internet without her because there's so much information out there about Jon and she doesn't want them to see it
  • They only eat healthy, balanced meals. She teaches the kids which foods make your body grow up versus make your body grow out. 
  • The kids wanted to leave the Alaska camp ground and that if they had asked to stay she would have but they were wet and complaining so they left. The show didn't show that part. (No, Kate. That's not how it went down. Joel's exact quote was: "Actually, I do want to stay."
  • Her kids don't care if she discusses her kids
  • She can't work as a nurse because babysitter would cost more than she would make.

She said she's broke, said she'd work at McDonald's if she had to and that she's THE breadwinner.

By the way, if nursing doesn't make enough to pay the babysitter, then flipping burgers at McDonald's sure won't.

And if she's not careful, she just might get her wish and end up only being able to get a job there eventually. Wouldn't that be a kick in the pants? She wouldn't last a day.

Continuing the discussion, she is a FLAT OUT LIAR. The recap I linked to explains how it went down in Alaska.

The kids were having the time of their lives. Kate was being a bitch. She finally said we're going, the kids were VERY UPSET and Joel said no we want to STAY. Then she guilt tripped them by saying they are Palins not Gosselins and then finally, reluctantly, one of the girls said fine I'll go. They were manipulated into doing what she wanted. Then afterward Sarah and her Dad talked about how much FUN the kids were having and how they would have remembered this forever.

What is she saying, the whole thing was dubbed? None of that is true?

Berks Neighbor said...

Something that you need to understand about this appearance by Kate. She was a co-host, not a guest on the Broadminded show. One of the hosts twittered last night that someone (possibly a higher up) was paying for her appearance.
She did get paid for this time on the radio. I can't imagine it was much.
The clues are there about who is paying for Steve.
When asked who pays Steve, she skirted the issue and then kinda said it depends on the appearance. She could be having his fee paid by the people hosting the gig.
These two (Kate and Steve) are taking their dog and pony show anywhere someone will shell out a few peanuts. It's sad and pathetic.

terri said...

God, this bitch is so vile. So now she is basically saying her kids are liars. It's on film you crazy bitch that they were having a blast in Alaska, it was you that was miserable from the get-go.

mscatie said...

If Kate thinks SHE'S the breadwinner and SHE has no job, then SHE'S failing miserably, isn't SHE?

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Continuing this from the other thread you know I kind of disagree with the radio hosts that "that's how you can tell" how much money someone has by the car they drive.

Stupid people get into cars way over their heads just like stupid people get into houses way over their heads. A lot of very wealthy people I know buy a nice reliable Hondo or Toyota. And a lot of not very wealthy people I know buy Range Rovers and Mercedes.

So with those cars Kate is either rich, or very stupid. But she can't be smart.

Mel said...

She can't work as a nurse because the babysitter would cost more than she would make...but she'd make more per hour working at McDonald's than nursing, which is why she's considering the McDonald's as a feasible financial option.

Maybe the babysitter charges a rolling scale....and doesn't charge as much if Kate worked at McDonalds?

Would Steve still have to guard her if she worked at McDonalds? Will he yell at me if I order something other than the salad and fat-free dressing?

What if she really did get a job as a nurse? Would Steve still have to guard her then? How's that gonna work with all the hippa rules?

SG said...

Just checking in to read the comments... From what I've read that radio interview was #vile.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

What is wrong with getting up to speed on medical advances then going part time at the dialysis place during school hours or when Jon has the kids? She wouldn't have to pay a babysitter.

And I'm sorry but a babysitter is NOT more than what you will probably make as a nurse or all those nurses would be babysitters.

chefsummer said...

Let's remember Kate didn't go to college for nursing.

Correct me if i'm wrong but don't most if not all hospitals want some form of a degree.?

She doesn't even have an associate degree so why should a hospital hire her.

Kat said...

I missed the part about how much money she has left (if you can believe her). Also how is she the bread winner when she doesn't have a job? I'm totally confused....can someone fill me in on her money issues...since I find that most interesting..

Check Please! said...

Dallas Lady said... 128
Check Please, what was stopping her from saying "I'm sorry, that's too private" when asked about her girls and puberty???
---------------------
You mean like when the hosts specifically asked if the twins have begun to menstruate and Kate REFUSED TO ANSWER?
Oh, wait...that doesnt fit into the mental paradigm most commenters here have that Kate does everything wrong and has no boundaries, does it?

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

So if a kid is mortified just to go BRA SHOPPING (and boy can I relate to that feeling, I sure was) why wouldn't a kid be motivated to have this TALKED about to thousands????

God she is horrendouly horrendous.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Did they? I can't believe they asked that. Thank God Kate didn't answer.

But Check she should say no to ALL of these questions. She should tell the host upfront the kids are off limits, period. This is her fault.

Administrator,

Did you realize that someone posted the real name of a Twitter fan/follower of Kate's on the previous thread?

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

If TLC was really not paying her much that just makes HER look stupid. The contract was renegotiated at least three times. Why wasn't she demanding what she was worth? Why wasn't she getting a good lawyer to get her and the kids their money?

She just looks DUMB. I know what I am worth and what I should be paid. It is your responsibility to know that when you walk into a job interview and they start talking salary. I don't sit there like a dummy and blindly accept 10 bucks an hour then cry about being poor later.

Berks Neighbor said...

She didn't answer when but she went right into talking about how she had the 'talk' with them and how embarrassed they were and what one of the twins did. She could have said all of it is off limits. She left it up to the imagination of the listener by going just so far.
She obviously did not research the hosts nor listen to this radio show before today because you could tell that she was shocked by some of the things talked about w/ their guests...she did that trademark 'huff' and other sound effects of disgust that we've seen so many other times.

CharlieCat said...

With regards to the Alaska campout - she said the camera's didn't show this part but they plane they flew on to the campground landed in the middle of water and they had to walk through the water to the camp site so they were already wet when they got there. Then when they went to their tent there was a foot of water in it. She also said that the Palin kids were older and used to this kind of weather and her kids weren't.

Regarding the hosts, I've never listened to them before, but they weren't shy with their comments regarding sex. One said something about "hitting that" and about how something reminded her of the first time she had fallatio. Kate sounded like a prude at some points but I would have too, I would have been uncomfortable talking about a lot of that - when she lost her virginity, etc.

Berks Neighbor said...

Admin: I think they were using that comment about the cars as a way to out her - either her stupidity or her lying about not having money. One of them said she drives a small used car as well.
I think we need to send a set of golden shovels to the hosts for having to put up with all Kate's crap.

One host said she saw a video of one of the boys crying and not wanting to film and Kate was all "I don't think that happened. I don't recall my kids ever not wanting to film."
IT'S ON TAPE - you know the memories you made and filmed to watch for eternity.

Gift of grab said...

If Kate is really concerned about the cost of babysitters, then why is she still employing any? It's not like she "works" often enough to justify the expense.

Once again, we come back around to the problem with Katie (and the reason for all of our frustration): She LIES. She thinks can call black white and people MUST believe her because she has the "best interests" of her children at heart. She thinks she can rewrite ANY of the TV-documented moments in her history simply because she IS Kate Gosselin. Unfortunately, I don't see this working for her for very much longer.

As for who funded today's Kate "appearance," when someone asked Christine Eads yesterday on Twitter about Kate coming on the show, IIRC, the question was about limo and bodyguard, not whether Kate was being paid for the gig. I still don't believe she got paid, but I don't doubt that someone coughed up the funds for transportation/Steve.

Skin and Bones said...

Every time I think that Kate can't possibly get any worse she sinks to a new low. Every stinking time.

When Jon is able to get a real writer to tell his story it will make a fascinating book. Poor guy has only had his life represented by trashy tabloids.

------------------
I guess I can see the point from that perspective.
However it's essentailly a show hosted by mothers, for mothers, about Motherhood. If that had been any other woman talking about bra shopping with her daughters, NO ONE would criticize. it's the fact that it is Kate that send people into a tizzy.

It's like that Red Cross blanket photo. I maintain to this day there was nothing wrong with that picture. The thing that got people so upset was that it was Kate in the picture.

When you hate a person so strongly, EVERYTHING they do or say is held to a different standard than one would hold any other person. I've said it before, there's a lot to call Ms. Gosselin on. No need to create outrage when it isn't due.

Mel said...

You know, when some of you in the past were saying that she'd talk about their periods and first bra's, I was kinda put off, thinking: gosh, I wish they wouldn't be so crude. There's no way Kate would violate their privacy like that...not even Kate would go that far.

Guess I was wrong. I take my thought back. You called it.

I hope Jon gets wind of this extreme violation of the kids' privacy, and is able to do something to make her stop talking about the kids in public or radio shows or twitter or magazines or whatever.

I'd love to have a judge say that she can NO LONGER talk about the kids OR Jon. I'd love to see Jon sue her for slander/libel, and win.

Who would have thought that as a parent you'd have to go to court to get the other parent to stop talking publicly about the kids' bras.

And just because some other celebrity does it (according to her) doesn't mean it's right.

If they jumped off the bridge, would she jump too?

She is just beyond words.

I have to totally disagree with this. I don't think any mother should talk about such a thing on a public radio show. That is vile and disgusting. It's SO private to a kid. Keep it that way. Maybe, at most, talk privately with your mom or a girlfriend, but about something so public that thousands here? Absolutely not. Back me up here Moms with teens.

Plus, what makes it worse is WE KNOW WHO MADY AND CARA ARE. It's one thing to talk about your anonymous daughter and no one will likely identify them. Quite another to talk about a public child.

Here's the exchange about money vis-a-vis today on Sirius:


@UseCmmonSense · Open
@christinemeads This mean @Kateplusmy8 will be traveling to DC, who would be paying for that, is Steve gonna b there, what ?'s will U ask?
Christine Eads ‏ @christinemeads Close

@UseCmmonSense @Kateplusmy8 Who knows who is paying? The higher ups I guess, I will be honest and true!

Dmasy said...

So, did I get this correctly. She actually told the plastic surgery lie again -- no breast augmentation? If she is willing to misrepresent her bra size (again) with photo evidence in front of our eyes....then, what wouldn't she lie about that can't be proven?

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Check please, here's the thing about the "because it's Kate" argument. You bet it's because it's Kate. She has blown all her chances. I gave this woman three years of chances and she just kept spitting it back in our faces.

So you're right, it is because it's Kate to some extent, sometimes, and it's because Kate does not deserve the benefit of the doubt anymore. Not after six years of this crap.

If talking about Mady and Cara's bras was the ONLY questionable thing she ever did, you might have a point. It's clearly not. It's one of hundreds of bad choices she has made that just keep piling up.

To your "because" it's Kate argument, I give you, fool me twice shame on ME.

SuzyQ said...

I don't know what was the expected outcome of this radio gig, but anytime her mouth opens; either a lie falls out or something very embarrassing about the children comes out.
Are we really all that surprised?
I'm not.
The only thing that would surprise me at this point is if she got an honest job, sold the orphanage, deleted her twitter account, downsized and started living a private life.
NONE of that is going to happen anytime soon.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

What other celebrity talks about their kids bras??? Which one, Kate? NAMES please. I googled around and can't find any celebs talking about such a thing. Most celeb? Really don't TALK about their kids that much, because it's private and all that.

I bet you anything IF that's true that other celebs have talked about it, which I doubt it is, there are a lot of negative comments after the article.

And whatever happened to just because other celebs talk about it doesn't mean it's OKAY FOR YOU TO DO IT? Doesn't she tell her kids just because Timmy is doing that doesn't mean you can't?

Sherry Baby said...

Kate said she doesn't let the kids get on the internet without her because there's so much information out there about Jon and she doesn't want them to see it

Too bad someone didn't ask her if she knows who set up Cara's fake Twitter and Formspring accounts!

Dmasy said...

Check Please, you have a valid point. A few posts ago, I admitted to having a definite bias.

She wears me out. She raises my level of skepticism to an all new high. She just isn't held accountable for all her distortions. She tramples her children's privacy.

I read here because I can vent my many frustrations. I long ago abandoned being "fair" to Kate.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

To me, talking about a pre-teen bra shopping is outrageous. It IS due. Nothing artificial has been created, this IS outrageous. You really picked the wrong thing to accuse us of creating drama about. This is quite possibly the worst thing Kate has ever done to those precious twins.

If that's not your opinion, then we'll just have to disagree to disagree.

Brassieres are vile and disgusting? Wow, sorry you have such a negative body image of women. LOL.
I have an 11 year old. A lot of them are excited about wearing a bra. If I had said something like this on the radio, she might be like, Mom, you're a jerk." And that would be it. No lifelong scarring, no permanent damage. Honestly, I don't see what the big deal is. You don't know those girls, you dont know how they feel about it.
Also, if it's so freaking harmful, people shouln't be calling so much attention to it. The more internet banter there is about it, the more likely it will get back to the kids. Get over it.

chefsummer said...

Ask Kate what freaking bra size she wears I bet she wouldn't answers that.

FL Mama said...

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

Either Katie Irene is suffering from an early onset of dementia, or she is a manipulative, deceptive LIAR.

So she's poor, but Skeevie is still working for her? With his salary being based on the type of appearance she makes? That's some paycut he's willing to take for Katie's sweet ass... Yep, she's boinking him. Done.

Mark my words, in a few years (or months), people will utter, "Kate who?"
And if they do remember just who Kate is, it will be followed by a groan and rolling eyeballs.

Since Katie will not go back to woreking at a mediocre job, Skeevie had better get a second (or third) job. Katie Irene has acquired a taste for living an affluent lifestyle.

He's going to rue the day he crossed paths with that monster.

%%%

Disagree again. The photo was inappropriate because she looked naked underneath and was barefoot. The Red Cross is a very conservative organization. It is not a time for come hither pinup photos. It goes to Kate's level of awareness and her boundaries, of which she has none.

There's some things Kate does that bother other people that I don't really care about. But Check, she's lost her chances. This is Kate's fault. If she were a lovely mother and person who truly did do her best and was kind to her kids and others, I'm sure she would continue to get lots of chances and benefits of the doubt. It's not like this web site was born on episode two of this show. It was a long time in giving this woman a break.

Don't blame us, blame Kate. She got herself to this point.

&&&

Did you ask her this? That may be. But I don't know who your child is, do I? Therein lies the difference. Your child has not had their entire lives exposed to the masses, because you protected your child. A one-time incident of a mom talking about something inappropriate probably isn't a big deal. Chef, this is NOT a one-time incident this a piling on and piling on of repeated, aggressive attempts to mortify these kids and strip away every last sense of privacy.

Honestly, I don't see what the big deal is. You don't know those girls, you dont know how they feel about it.
&&&

You don't know how they feel about it either, so why say it's okay to talk about it, not knowing that? It doesn't matter if they love when Kate talks about such things (a child who is modified to go shopping is just fine with Kate talking about it? That doesn't make sense). It's private and should stay that way. Kate needs to respect their privacy, period. She needs to create appropriate boundaries between the public and her children. Her children are very public and in order to maintain at least SOME sense of dignity and privacy, bra shopping talk should be off limits. Unless and until Cara and Mady themselves want to talk about such a thing, Kate has no business discussing it.

I hate when people don't respect a child's boundaries and take it upon themselves to decide what should be shared about them. That is a CHILD's right to decide, not Kate's.

Now I know why she wants to keep her hair blonde. She needs to have something to blame her stupidity on. Sheesh...if that's how you spell it.

I guess I need to buy a gazillion tweet accounts. I lost the bet. She started talking about puberty issues and the rapture hasn't come yet. (reference to something I posted on the other thread). I'm going to be broke.

I have to say though, I'm going to enjoy watching her trying to dig herself out of this grave..oops..hole.

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

If the twins were mortified in person talking about bras, what on God's green earth would make anyone believe it would be harmless if Katie Irene broadcast that fact on a radio station?

Katie Irene SUCKS- she is insensitive, disrespectful, out of touch, and if she really cared for her children as individual human beings with feelings, she would not splay their young lives for the entertainment of strangers.

Unfortunately, she has NOTHING to talk about if it does not include her kids.

Katie is an empty vessel.
No substance. No brain, heart, soul, or conscience.

Kate has no boundaries. None. You HAVE to as their mother create boundaries for these very public kids. You have to draw some lines in the sand between her nosey fans and them. It is just plain essential to these children growing up in a healthy and private environment.

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

My teen is now 40, but when she was a teen there is no way in a million years I would have discussed her "new" bra with even casual friends let alone the listening public. That's an invasion of her privacy and I have respect for my children and their rights. Maybe I'm old fashioned, but when did it become the norm that "anything goes" in public conversations?

Westcoaster said...

As for the grifting, she did lay it out as in 'if people offer, why shouldn't I take." Hmm, got a few minutes Kate?

The girls have her old Iphones? Hmm, guess we got a lot of uogrades if they were not actually broken. And monthly data plan costs for 3 are ? Unless they are somehow disabled, those girls can do a whole lot of web browsing, why they could even read about Mommy especially since there is not much about Daddy out there these days.

Not surprised that she continues to reinvent history but I am completely disgusted that she has no boundaries in discussing bra shopping/puberty issues about her daughters on the radio - classless piece of trash. I hope Jon hauls her back into court for this horrible invasion of the girls' privacy.

Can't get a job during the 9 hours your children are in school/on a bus? I do think that might greatly reduce the cost of a babysitter. As for Steve, she has yet to explain why she, of all class Z celebrities, needs a handler. All around a typical conversation with Kate.

Hey sheeple, kids's tuition needs to be paid with hopes and prayers next year. Open your checkbooks and give generously, your Mom of 8, with the 3 new cars, NYC haircuts, and mansion is desparate.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

And I know, since I WAS a teen and do remember those years, that bra shopping mortified me as did getting my period. I mean mortified. I cannot even begin to IMAGINE Mom going on a radio show talking about bra shopping. I would want to kill myself, no exaggeration. Now I kind of laugh about what was so sensitive about it since I freely talk about it with girlfriends and mom and siblings these days, but that's a teenage brain. You have to put yourself back in that teenage brain and remember how awkward and uncomfortable and embarrassing all these changes are that we think nothing of now. These days OH is like please remember to keep your tampon box below the sink. LOL. But as a teen OMG.

My mom was very sensitive about it with her girls and didn't even so much as talk about it with our grandma, and for that I really love her.

Dmasy said...

Check Please, 34. We DO know how the girls feel. It was reported that she commented on their embarrassment while shopping. One twin hid behind a book and another ran from the store.

I was a shy kid. I was humiliated to go bra shopping. I didn't need one. The nuns at our school required all 12-13 year old girls wear a bra under white blouses. The whole discussion reminded me that I had friends developing while I was flat chested. If I happened to be one of the twins, it would effect me to have such a private moment described for entertainment on a radio show.

Maggie said...

(I brought this over from other post)
I thought Kate did sound upbeat, sometimes funny, and did an overall great job. BUT she lied throughout it all.
1)She said that either Mady or Cara (can't remember which one) would probably kill her and then started talking about them being in bras and shopping for them. Later on when a caller confronted her on that very subject, Kate said that her kids don't care about her talking about them and their bras.
2)She said several times that she has no idea why she is so confrontational. What a liar, of course she knows why. It is because she is exploiting and "using" her kids. Her kids made her a multi-millionaire.
3)On their first or second Discovery special Kate stated that she worked every other Satuday under 12 hours at a time. Well today, she stated she worked 16 hour shifts EVERY Saturday for an entire year. Liar!!
4)They asked her if Jon and she could afford more kids especially since there was a great possiblity that it could have been more than one and she said yes. Nothing was said how they were on Medicaid for an entire year. Or how they went to court to ask Medicaid to continue to pay for another year for their LPN (nurse) at a cost of $25,000 when they had $100,000 in equity (per Kate) in their home. No mention that Jon was without a job for most of the first year of the tups lives.
5)Kate admitted she had a "closet full of jean".
6 )Kate said, "a lot of people would say my kids would need to get away from me". How stupid and telling of her.
7) Kate "knows" Taylor Swift and Kate "knows" her mother. They asked her to call Taylor's mother and Kate said no. She made it sound like she personally is family friends with them when in fact she only met them with backstage passes like thousands and thousands of others thru the years.
8)Kate admitted she treated Jon harshly and was hard on him BUT most of the work fell on her. Liar! We saw you did all the work around their home.
9) Kate never mentions she is a born again evangelical christian only that she is conservative raised in a christian school. She plays both sides of the fence. When she needed money they went to church to grift and give talks about God. Now that she wants a secular job in the media, she plays a different person. I really think if a few years ago, the 700 club offered her a co-hosting job with a several million dollar contract, she would have taken it. Bottom line, she loves money and fame.
10) And best of all, Kate said that she talked with Cara and Mady about their periods and what to expect. She said Mady was pretending to read her book but Kate knew she was listening.
11) And as said above, she said it makes her so mad that people think she earned so much. She said to take several of those zero's off of what everyone thinks they made. I believe TV Guide and it makes perfect sense considering the hundred of millions TLC made off the Gosselins through the years. And if she isn't rich, then why the hell has she been unemployed for the past 6 months. Really, which way does she want it. Very rich and therefore no need to find a job. Or needs money and hasn't worked for the past 6 months with 8 kids. She can't have it both ways. I believe she still has over 3 million cash in the bank. Very easily!
12) They asked her if she had any fillers or surgeries. Of course, she lied again and said only the tummy. But she 100% had some kind of work on those eleven lines between her brows that are now missing. They were documented for years on her tv and in photos but are now gone. Again, liar!
13) And she said that rumor has it Cara and Mady both have boyfriends. At that age, they must be mortified about their mother talking about their bras, periods, and boyfriends for the nation to hear.

Maybe someone who is listening could submit a recap?? This sounds awful. Poor M and C, and Jon...there is way more on the Internet about Kate than Jon.

Berks Neighbor said...

Since you don't know me or my daughter and I don't share her name or photos here (or anywhere on the internet) I will say that she would have been mortified beyond belief if I said what Kate said on the air. Discussion of all the 'growing up' stuff isn't vile or offensive, but it is extremely personal. Girls going through puberty are experiencing HUGE amounts of change in their emotions, their bodies, how they perceive themselves, and how they think they are perceived by others. This is a time when their mom needs to be their advocate and a place for shelter. I feel bad that Kate used her twins' personal experiences as fodder for humor for her sheeple. She is the one who is VILE and OFFENSIVE and I will stand firm in my assessment.

Katie Cry-duh said...

I guess crunchy things make you grow up and not out. Awesome

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

But TALKING about it is "vile or offensive". Periods and bra shopping in and of itself and a child growing up is not vile and offensive. It's a beautiful thing, but a private thing between you and your child and at the most, very close family and friends.

Disrespecting your child's boundaries is vile and offensive. Make no mistake.

I just spent 20 minutes looking for that comment cause I remembered reading it. Anyway I applaud you for admitting that. Much respect. It's people who deny that fact that I find tiresome with no integrity.

Check Please I admit my bias with Kate. She blew all her chances and I'm done giving her chances. So no, she doesn't get the benefit of the doubt from me usually, and certainly not when she talked about what she talked about today!

Is this interview available as a podcast after the fact or anything to save? I can foresee future sheeple defectors demanding a source when we talk about this down the line, accusing us of exaggerating, etc. I think we might need it.

I must be getting old. When did it become ok to broadcast it over national radio?

Berks Neighbor said...

I guess I wasn't clear in my writing. I'm really ticked about the whole thing because I do have a daughter. I meant discussion between moms and daughters. Discussion on talk radio shows IS Offensive and Vile. ;-)

Not even getting into what an IDIOT this woman is about money if what she is saying is true.....

What is the purpose of discussing it other than to try to grift?

Maggie said...

Oh, and she said that one of the little girls asked her if some food would make her fat. I was stunned & saddened to hear that). And Kate said that they have had talks about them eating healthy, balanced meals. And made some reference that she told her kids she won't tolerate them worrying about their body & eating issues. She mentioned how Mady was thin but Cara had a different build. But told the girls that everyone is different in their looks. Again, that proves that it is ALREADY an issue in their house. But she failed to mention that she is a horrilbe example for her kids. For instance, Kate mentioned before that her kids even commented several times that she was eating normally before she ran for her marathon. That again proves they do notice how she eats differently from them. Yep, she is setting them up for problems down the road, if any already, and she is to blame for it.

"Brassieres are vile and disgusting? Wow, sorry you have such a negative body image of women. LOL."

You missed the point. Bras are not vile and disgusting. Talking on a radio show about your minor daughters' first bras, the very daughters who have had no say in being 'known' due to their parents decisions to trade their privacy for cash & goodies, is an extremely vile thing for their mother to do. Their private lives should be off limits.
Add that to everything else known about them, not to mention the pedo who edited the shows... good grief - it is the SUM TOTAL of all it that makes every single additional thing she does to exploit them and take away another bit of privacy vile.

To the tup who sadly asked if eating certain foods would make her fat, I say this:
You can eat a tablespoon of anything and not get fat. It's your mom's genes and eating disorder that may make you heavy someday

Dmasy said...

From Maggie, 67...She won't tolerate them worrying about eating or weight issues. Really, she said "won't tolerate"? Just how much control does she think she has over their little minds? There are many things she thinks she won't tolerate, but she better start getting ready.

Sherry Baby said...

Someone said that she was embarrassed to tell her father about her first bra. I can remember it like it was yesterday. I came home from the department store with mine, and put it in the top drawer of my dresser. Either my mother or older sister told my father. He came into my room, didn't mention the bra, but said, "I guess I don't have my little girl anymore." I will never forget those words.

I don't for one second believe that the twins don't care about her talking about private things. Has she no clue whatsoever that classmates find out about those things? What in the heck is wrong with this woman? Is she that starved for attention that nothing in these kids' world is private?

Tess said...

Sherry Baby said:

She's a REGISTERED NURSE said...

chefsummer said... 10
Let's remember Kate didn't go to college for nursing.

Correct me if i'm wrong but don't most if not all hospitals want some form of a degree.?

She doesn't even have an associate degree so why should a hospital hire her.

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

This AGAIN? She is a Registered Nurse. That means that she passed the same exam as someone with an AA or BA. It's rather silly to ask why a hospital would hire a nurse who completed a diploma program when it is hospitals that offer those programs. I doubt that their goal is to train nurses that they refuse to hire. Not to mention that Kate has worked in a hospital, so clearly her path to becoming an RN did not prevent a hospital from hiring her. Why would that preclude her from employment now? (Being out of the field for a period of time might well be an issue, but her lack of a degree is not.)

Sheri said...

I'm with those who didn't think Kate could sink any lower. My goodness. My daughter is 16 and I can tell you flat out she'd have been, would be, beyond mortified if I discussed personal things about her to perfect strangers. Who wouldn't be?

If my daughter wanted to talk about those things, that's her business. Her body, her right. But in what universe do I have the right to violate her privacy like that?

I happen to agree that this is made all the more upsetting because these kids are public figures, we know their names, their faces.

It would be much less disturbing if they were anonymous figures and the discussion was more educational.

But the purpose of the discussion was entertainment and ratings. Pure and simple, Kate exploited her girls' pubescent experiences to line her pockets and try to stay relevant. That most definitely is vile and offensive.

Admin, you said it perfectly...Kate is clueless about boundaries. It is even more clear that Kate doesn't see her kids as individual people with a right to privacy. They are HERS to govern, manipulate and use for her own personal and financial gain.

I think in Kate's world, if something doesn't bother her then it shouldn't bother her kids, either.

See how well that works out over the next couple of years as they become even more cemented in their individual personalities.

Mel said...

Admin, your words were perfectly clear re: vile and disgusting. Someone is choosing to twist them around for their own purposes. Pay them no mind. Pretty pathetic when you can't argue the point on its merits and have to resort to dirty tricks.

I hope there's a podcast so you can recap it. Except maybe I don't really want to know... :(

Dmasy said...

Check Please, 60 - Thank you for respecting me. That was a kind comment.

I sometimes question myself. Why am I here - reading and posting? Really, there is NO other blog site that I participate in. (Excluding family.) There is no other "celebrity" that I follow or care much about.

I have seen posts from other women expressing the same Gosselin attention that is out of character for them.

I speculated that it is because we are re-living some association with a similar crazy person from our past. We couldn't understand then and reviewing Kate gives us a chance to grab an explanation that eluded us at the time. I also think unfairness drives us crazy!

I also know that I respect and enjoy several of the regulars who weigh in here.

My reactions to Kate are emotional (and negative).

You are being her advocate here -- at least, in this one instance. Please understand that you have a Herculean task if you want us to agree with you.

Maggie said...

Kate is in for a very terrifying ride if she hasn't goggled her kids names. Here are the number of hits for the 8. I won't say which child has what number of hits, but here goes in no particular order:
9,500,000
1,050,000
202,000
2,950,000
131,000
2,040,000
2,030,000
1,350,000

And she said today that she is no different then other mothers such as Brook (DWTS) and Sherri (The View) because they give out personal info and posts photos of their children on twitter. Well, I don't even know their kids names or what they look like. And I bet 99.5% of America doesn't know either. That is the difference, Kate. Either are your really, really stupid or playing stupid to cover your ass. I think it is the latter. Their children weren't on 125 plus episodes of tv that featured them from 2 years old to 7 years old. Nor were they on numerous magazine covers.

Just when I thought you had 1/2 a brain, you turn around and start discussing your teens' bra sizes and menstrual cycles.You having breast implants isn't to be discussed, too personal for you?

You must have known the
topics going in to the interview and only allow the softball questions you will allow.All bets are off if it's about the kids or Jon, eh? You disgust and nauseate me no end, what a vile pig you are.'No comment' would have been fine, or' I'm not discussing the children.'WTF is wrong with you?

Shame on you for even pretending you're a mother on tv;I hope Jon keeps a copy for the judge to read. Rot in hell you big POS! I raised 3 girls and this subject is taboo for tv and radio.

No one else started off their post with "Because I WAS a teen..." which implies some unique perspective that others don't share. It's the equivalent of saying "As a teacher, yada yada..." when education is being discussed. It's just plain silly in this context.

Imagine being a "famous" kid out bra shopping. You're not anonymous, you're a target for anyone in the store with a cell phone camera and the ability to Tweet.

IGNORE said...

Guys, PLEASE don't let the sheep deflect! IGNORE IGNORE IGNORE

Jumping In said...

Proof positive Kate knows no boundaries. As many have stated here, talking about very personal experiences with one's children should remain private. I was mortified when my mother confessed to me that she had told my father she had taken me bra shopping. I still remember running to my room feeling utterly betrayed, embarrassed, and 'outted' my my own mother!

Regarding Kate's concerns about her finances, I too have a quote, Kahlil Gibran said, 'The fear of need, when the pantry is full, is the thirst that is unquenchable.'

Tamara said...

When you hate a person so strongly, EVERYTHING they do or say is held to a different standard than one would hold any other person. I've said it before, there's a lot to call Ms. Gosselin on. No need to create outrage when it isn't due.
------------------------
I've always been fascinated by that, and how it works both ways. If you dislike someone you are much more willing to believe negative press about them, or not forgive them for things you would forgive and forget for others. Same when it comes to a person you really like. They can do no wrong.

I think people gave Kate the benifit of the doubt for so long. They let her pass even though she was doing and saying some pretty horrible, hateful things to her children and their father. But there is a line, and Kate crossed it long ago. She used up all her second chances and any empathy or sympathy from others. Plus she has been caught in soooo many lies that it is nearly impossible to believe anything she says. Even the 'the' and 'a' are a lie.

cubbybear said...

It does not surprise me that she talked about something so personal as bras for the twins, she taped the kids when they were pottytraining and when they were sick. As far as her not having money why isn't she selling the house and a few of her cars that she has?? She doesn't want to work, it's that simple

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Didn't someone say that story about Mady hiding behind a book was talking to them about their periods? How is that Kate not discussing it. I didn't hear it so im going by what's reported.

LaLaLandNoMore said...

Most of us know women or are women who returned to the work force once our kids went to school full-time. Kate has no real excuse! She already has help at least part-time. She makes no sense at all. People who are really broke, work or constantly look for work. She is sickening beyond belief. She is grifting still for that perfect job in entertainment. Never gonna happen! For all we know, Kate may be collecting welfare from the State of PA. Nothing would surprise me. This woman will not go away to a quiet private life any time soon. Delusional, no common sense woman she is.

Best to all of you here. I'm signing off for a while.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Well, back in the old days we called them "training bras". (Although I was never sure what we were training, lol). I'm sure there's a few exceptions, but for the most part isn't a girl's first bra basically a shortened camisole? There's not much designated cup size involved, is there?

And, if I understand correctly their individual experiences weren't discussed, but Kate said they did have a discussion about periods in general...a very private conversation between mothers and daughters, no? IMO, Kate really didn't refuse to discuss the topic only the specifics.

Berks Neighbor said...

She didn't 'REFUSE' to talk about the girls periods. (I can't believe we are discussing this) she didn't stand up and say "SORRY my children and their personal lives are off limits."
NO...what she did do was not even acknowledge the question but then went on to talk about how she sat the girls down to discuss getting their periods and how embarrassed one of them was.
WHAT about that is NOT embarrassing. Discussing having the discussion and sharing how the kids were embarrassed. If they were that mortified in front of their mother, how do you think they feel knowing she spread it all out there for public consumption once again.
She's a lose canon and willing to profit off any experience her children have, but GOD FORBID anyone ask HER anything personal.
Good Lord people! Why do you keep defending this woman's totally inappropriate behavior regarding the privacy that her children should have?
It's unfathomable.

Oh, no, no! I am NOT trying to be her advocate here. Heaven's no! LMAO. It doesn't stop people from thinking I am however. Which speaks to the dynamic often seen on this blog that if a commenter isn't in step with the Kate hating, they are a loyal bleeting fan. Not accusing YOU of doing that. I just see it all the time and I see it denied all the time. When one comes from a generally ambivalent perspective, the one-sidedness here is glaringly apparent.

I dislike the woman for two very concrete reasons:
1. Her complete and total lack of gratitude for the staggering abundance in her life.
2. Her audacity in calling herself a "Writer" and a "Television Personality" is completely insulting to all of the people who actually possess talent in those areas and are struggling to eek out an acceptable living from it.

Yes, putting her family on TV for money is terrible, but you know what? Lots of people do that. So I sincerely hope those who claim that this is the worst Kate does spend an equal amount of time bashing all the other parents who exploit their kids for money.

And as far as the day-to-day picking apart of every little thing she does and says, both her and on other hate/fan sirtes, I just find it facsinating. Its quite a psychological study.

Gift of grab said...

Well, the "Kate's Broke!" story is now making the rounds of the online tabs--surely a People cover story can't be far behind. Clearly, this is a well-coordinated effort by her PR team.

I don't believe for a second that she is truly in dire financial straits. Not even she could have gone through all of that money in so little time.

Kate and her PR people are utterly SHAMELESS in pushing this story. What happens when her kids start getting asked about this in school? This is all a ploy to extend her 15 minutes, and her kids will be the ones ashamed and embarrassed by her, once again. I truly feel sorry for them-- from day to day, they have no idea what sort of crap they're going to face in school. Why can't she try to find just a little bit of dignity and STFU about things that she herself says are none of people's business?

I honestly can find no redeeming qualities in her. Not a single one.

Right on the money, this woman does NOT want to work, she wants to be paid to entertain. And that is not going to happen. Oh sure, she may continue to get a gig like the one this morning (any clue what that may have paid her, just curious?), but these are few and will be farther between. Her Laziness really has no clue the amount of work (reading,research) that goes into hosting; she thinks Kelly, Sheri, etc., get up, go to the studio for hair and make-up, and then sit in a chair and chat with guests.

Kathie Lee Gifford was widely criticised for contantly talking about her children, but even she had boundaries. Kate is simply a dumbass, no class, no taste, and no controls. Her surgeries are "private", but she will say anythng about her children. Hopefully there will be NO audience when her younger ones get to the puberty ages.

I have a hunch the tup who asked the question about fattening foods is one that 'suddenly' slimmed down at age 4 or so. There were comments on 'another' blog about her weight- unfair to her, but that's what happens when your mother is a loon.

As for Mady and Cara, I'm sure they will be mortified tomorrow at school, poor kids. It is a personal thing, yes, every girl goes through, but luckily most of us had some privacy. Why would anyone ask these questions to Kate? That seems unfair, as they must know she would probably answer !

I agree with this, to a certain extent. But, you know what? She is the one who puts it out there. She is the one who posts photos of a meager Valentine's Day breakfast. She posts pictures of kids scrounging around for laptops. Yes, it's picked apart because she claims to do everything for her kids and is constantly exhausted and see what a wonderful Mommy I am. When she's called out on it, she goes into damage control mode.

She's very slick in her grifting. If she would just shut up about these things and not make everything public fodder, then there would be very few things to pick apart because her private life, and the private life of her children, wouldn't be out there for the internet world to dissect!

It's over Kate said...

Sorry if this point has been made already:

Kate won't work as a nurse because she'd have to pay a babysitter? She ALREADY pays a babysitter to be there while she tans, go to Target, and then sits in her room drinking coffee and tweeting. Why can she afford a babysitter while she slacks but can't afford one while she works?

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

Because of the polarizing attributes and stormy home life of their parents, and TLC's quest for money over morals, it is unfortunate for the Gosselin kids that they've become the poster children of what's wrong with reality TV.

IMO it's possible they will never escape their place in history, through no choice of their own, of having pioneered so many heated debates on such a volatile subject. Different circumstances but not so different from the Dionne Qunituplets in that respect.

Dallas Lady said...

I have a 17 year old daughter and she would have absolutely DIED if I had discussed such things on the RADIO.

It's one thing to talk with a friend, a fellow mom. PRIVATELY. It's quite another to broadcast your child's private business on a FREAKING RADIO SHOW.

Anyone who can't see the difference? I can't help you.

People have run through a lot more than she has/had in much shorter time. And now that she has no TLC support coming in if she continues spending as she has over the last 3 years I expect her to go broke within 9 months. Less if she doesn't have any income.

I wonder if Steve is helping to support her moneywise?

Dmasy said...

mscatie, 121 - well said.

The Dionne Quints are still a reference point. They could not Goggle themselves as adults. The Gosselin kids will always know about their lives from an internet perspective. None of the goodies they have received will compensate them for their permanent "fame" and lack of privacy.

OK, I'll ignore the straw man argument you attempt to set up her and play devil's advocate; Would you feel it inoffensive if, to a listening audience, Jon talked about the boys first wet dream? And which one was most embarrassed by his teaching them about nocturnal emissions?
Sure, it's natural and normal, now tell me if everyone wouldn't jump all over Jon for sharing something SO PERSONAL.

Kids are on spring break, thank goodness. The others will have some time to forget about it. They're most likely enjoying their vacations right now. I don't think the girls' bra-shopping experience is on their minds. Hopefully the classmates will forget when they return to school.

If Kate's so broke, who is paying for Steve's trip? Who is paying for the nanny to watch the kids while she is gone?

Maggie said...

I missed the part about how much money she has left (if you can believe her). Also how is she the bread winner when she doesn't have a job? I'm totally confused....can someone fill me in on her money issues...since I find that most interesting..
________________________
Kate did not address how much money she has left. But she did say that she was the breadwinner and also said that she will always be. She can be the breadwinner because of the multi-millions she is earning interest off of in the bank. And the 1/2 million from DWTS. Also she is earning (probably not much) from her coupon gig and all the ads she has listed at the bottom of each of her sections on her website. And don't forget Jon's child support. And if the cruise is a go, many say she will earn approx. $800 per person. Now she may have to pay the travel agent & babysitters from that but it could be a huge amount if she books the maximum 200 people allowed. Let say Kate clears $500 per person (after expenses) and books the full 200 people allotted then that will be a cool $100,000 she makes for a free 7 day paid cruise for herself. (Someone said that Cindy, the travel agent, said the maximum of people allowed would be 200).

If Kate was smart, she should have had TLC pay for the tuition of all her kids at least through the 8th grade--if not more. We don't know if she did that. But it is a huge possiblity that TLC may be paying the tuition even though they cancelled her show. That would save her a huge, huge amount of money. Remember that they really, really wanted Kate to continue the show because of all the trouble and expense they went through to sue Jon.

First, Steve is there with her, as he always has been and always will be, because they are an item...being paid or not has nothing to do with it. He has his own security company with people to run it for him.

Her lies become more and more outrageous and documentable.

PLEASE do not compare a college B.A. to a hospital-sponsored certificate...they are NOT equivalent, and it is infuriating to those of us who earned that degree with four (4) years of attending a COLLEGE UNIVERSITY.

PLEASE do not speak for others. I earned a degree with four (4) years of attending a COLLEGE UNIVERSITY. In fact, I earned that degree from one of the most "prestigious" universities in the country. Unlike you, I don't have some grandiose sense of superiority as a result. I have no idea why possessing a Bachelor's degree makes you feel so incredibly special, but whatever floats your boat. It doesn't change the fact that regardless of the path chosen, Kate Gosselin had to pass the same exam as those extraordinary degree-holding fellow RNs.

Allison said...

I have a granddaughter who is exactly the same age as the twins and I can guarantee you that she would be humiliated beyond words if anything was said about what is happening in her body right now. As someone else said, the fact that M and C are famous and it is their own MOTHER spouting that information for all to hear that makes it a sin, I mean a sin against everything a mother should be to her daughters. And she doesn't have to worry about what her kids might see about Jon but if M and C get wind of what she did today they may very well scream they want to live with their dad.

Let us all now pray, that Kate will be long removed from any medium when her sons start to experience wet dreams.
********************************************
My thoughts exactly. I've got boys (no girls) and I don't think that Kate is the "change the sheets and never bring it up" type of person.

silimom said...

Hi all - for the record, my 8 year old started needing training bras. I am not a shy person, and my girls have always seen me in various states of dress and undress. DD has always been a bit fascinated with my bras and so the day she got her first training bra, she announced it to everyone - her teacher, her dad, her brother, etc. And this was despite a reminder of the fact that "Privates are private" and not everyone needs to hear about what's going on with yours (a conversation I have with all my kids).

As for my experience with teens, my DSD had no shame about talking about bras, etc. with any of her friends or their parents. I was the one who had to remind her, again, that she had to watch out for TMI. She just honestly didn't see any big deal about it and saw it as a sign that she was growing up.

My point is that every child is different. Some are shy about this sort of thing and some, like my girls, see it as a right of passage and/or a sign that they are becoming like "mom". As you both said, Check and Admin, we really don't know these girls. I would caution all of us from putting words into their mouths.

As for Kate talking about the bra shopping, I'm on the fence. I disagree with you, Admin, that it is the most vile thing she's ever done to the twins. I think ending her marriage simply because she wanted to be a celebrity ranks far more on the skank scale on potential long term damage to them than talking about bra shopping for probably all of a minute or two on some radio show that frankly most of the people are going to forget about by this afternoon.

Was it inappropriate? Yes, imo. But, again imo, it's more deserving of an eyeroll and a "Kate is such a twit" than the outrage it has provoked here. But again, we're all writing our thoughts, and words can sometimes convey more emotion than is actually there. I am just saying, I was struck by the vehemence of the reactions I was reading as well. I just don't believe in giving Kate that much of my personal energy.

I see it this way - if Angelina Jolie was asked "Are you taking the girls bra shopping yet?" and if she responded, it would probably get some airplay and then people would drop it. I don't know that people would slam her in the same way that I see Kate being slammed here.

I think the issue is, as Check said, that it is Kate making this comment and we are all hypersensitive, as you said Admin, to what Kate says because she is Kate and her past precedes her.

What I find irritating about Kate is that the reason this becomes such a big deal is because all Kate has to talk about, really, are her kids and being a mom. That's all she's known for and she's really a one trick pony. Angelina Jolie, as an example, has many things to talk about - her humanitarian work, her films. Her family is a footnote, not the main body of her media interviews, unlike Kate.

So yes, Kate should have probably kept it general, like "Yay, the girls are definitely growing up. All kids do. How are your kids doing?" But Kate is not good at deflection. Kate is about attention.

I respect where Admin, and others are coming from in their anger towards her. Again, I just don't feel like giving Kate that much of my personal energy and it perplexes me at times when others do.

If the girls heard the radio show, or if it's mentioned to them, then believe me, Kate will hear it from her kids. Not that it will matter to her. Kate doesn't apologize, after all. IMO, that's who she needs to hear it from, in the end.

Buddy said...

The issue of Kate discussing her girls' bra shopping is a breach of trust between her and her children. She will use anything and anyone to be in the limelight. It's really too sad and I feel for her children.

Dmasy said...

I need to correct myself. Two of the Dionne Quints are still alive (aged 77 years). They can, indeed, Goggle themselves. How much worse will it be for the Gosselin children with all the info that is readily available now?

Allison said...

Is it really true she was crying she is broke? How can you be broke while living in that house and with three expensive cars with only one driver in the household.

Admin. I know you have said in the past that when you are dealing with a parental alienator that you have to pick your battles in when to go to the judge about things. Wouldn't this warrant going to the judge with -- Kate going on radio and discussing their daughters most intimate and embarrassing body changes which are no one else's business? Is there nothing he can do to stop her?

Once a Viewer said...

Fleecing: Thanks for mentioning the spring break. It's different in our area. and duh, me, I forgot tomorrow is Saturday. Thanks goodness. I think embarrassing someone is almost as bad as insulting them and while not all kids are the same as Sillimom says, there's a good chance one twin, maybe both, would not care for that discussion on the radio.

Anonymous said...

Since I am posting as "Anonymous", I'm not sure this post will be accepted, but I will take the chance that at least the Administrator will know that I agree it is totally unexceptable that she has spoken on national radio about things so personal between daughters and mother. From her point of view nothing is off limits since she knows her comments will be repeated by gossip sites for the rest of the day and throughout the weekend and, in her mind, keeping her relevant. She is a vile disgusting mother. I feel so sad for all her children but in particular at this time for her daughters.

On Obsessiveness said...

And as far as the day-to-day picking apart of every little thing she does and says, both her and on other hate/fan sirtes, I just find it facsinating. Its quite a psychological study.


#####

I also think that the sheeple/hater wars is a fascinating psychological study. It's been said here that it is the obsessive fans who often pose more of a threat to a celebrity than the non-fans. However, judging from recent comments on Kate's page, the haters who say that Kate should die, take a bullet between the eyes, wish for her to get kidnapped, raped and her body cut up, are also a cause of concern and should be put on a watch list. Kate should be afraid of the sheeple and the haters. Both are equally dangerous and because she has made so many enemies, there is the possibility that either faction poses a danger.

I certainly don't think anyone on here regularly would hope for any such thing to happen to Kate. But yes, fans and non-fans have been proven to be dangerous. I just always hope too that the kids are safe. We had this discussion a while back about celebs who were stalked. A very real terrifying threat. Makes one wonder why people would want to be in the public eye...

Since you are not "grandiose" and only mention your prestigious university in passing, I am telling you that you entirely missed my point. I don't care how in the hell you attempt to glam it up, Kate Gosselin is a registered nurse as a result of a hospital program and has NO COLLEGE. PERIOD. She did not go to college, prestigious or NOT...she did not go to ANY college for four (4) years and to equate her hospital-sponsored certificate to a college degree is NOT FAIR or EQUITABLE. GOT IT!

On the other hand, one of my best friends (who is the age of my daughter), is attending college classes and has been for the past two (2) years to obtain her R.N., while being the sole support for two (2) small children. I have the utmost respect for her.

So, with all due respect, STFU.

It's over Kate said... 119
Sorry if this point has been made already:

Kate won't work as a nurse because she'd have to pay a babysitter? She ALREADY pays a babysitter to be there while she tans, go to Target, and then sits in her room drinking coffee and tweeting. Why can she afford a babysitter while she slacks but can't afford one while she works?
*************************************************
Not only can she afford to pay a babysitter while she goes out and "plays"; she also pays her very own personal "babysitter" in the form of Steve. When it comes to this woman, the bottom line is that those who choose not to think through what she says will allow themselves to be conned; those that bother to think through her inconsistencies and contradictions can easily see the truth.

I find it ironic that she quotes Ayn Rand on her website. I wonder if she has actually read any of Ayn Rand's books. One of Rand's basic philosophical grounds is that a person is entirely responsibile for himself or herself, so no one should expect another to provide in any way. The characters Rand portrays as the heroes would have been appalled at the Gosselin grab-fest that started even before the babies were born. Dominique Francon would've torn them to shreds in a newspaper article; Dagny Taggert and all the male "heroes" would have viewed them as bottom feeders. If the Gosselins appeared as characters in Rand's books, they would have been vilified as examples of all that is wrong with society under her philosophy. Having read the book from which the quote on Kate's website originated, it is clear to me she has no clue of the full context of the quotation.

I guess she missed the following Ayn Rand quotations as well:
"People think that a liar gains a victory over his victim. What I've learned is that a lie is an act of self-abdication, because one surrenders one's reality to the person to whom one lies, making that person one's master, condemning oneself from then on to faking the sort of reality that person's view requires to be faked. And if one gains the immediate purpose of the lie - the price one pays is the destruction of what the gain was intended to serve. The man who lies to the world is the world's slave from then on."

"...There's no such thing as a lousy job—only lousy men who don't care to do it."

"You propose to establish a social order based on the following tenets: that you're incompetent to run your own life, but competent to run the lives of others -- that you're unfit to exist in freedom, but fit to become an omnipotent ruler -- that you're unable to earn your living by use of your own intelligence, but able to judge politicians and vote them into jobs of total power over arts you have never seen, over sciences you have never studied, over achievements of which you have no knowledge, over the gigantic industries where you, by your own definition of capacity, would be unable successfully to fill the job of assistant greaser."

"I’m a parasite. I’ve been a parasite all my life . . . I have fed on you and all the men like you who lived before we were born. . . . if they hadn’t existed I wouldn’t have known how to put stone to stone. . . . I have taken that which was not mine and given nothing in return."

“The truth is not for all men but only for those who seek it.”

“Devotion to the truth is the hallmark of morality; there is no greater, nobler, more heroic form of devotion than the act of a man who assumes the responsibility of thinking.”

“I swear by my life and my love of it that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.”


(One last quote- although I could list so many more)
“The hardest thing to explain is the glaringly evident which everybody has decided not to see.”

I seem to recall when she was photographed at the copy machine, there was a list of her yearly expenses. The kids' tuition (times eight) showed up on there. If TLC was paying the tuition, I doubt that she would have included those figures when the divorce settlement/child support issues were being sorted out. It was the amount needed for their education.

Based on those figures, and with yearly increases, she needs an additional (minimal) 1.5 million to see the kids through high school graduation. That's going to cut substantially into any amount she has hoarded. I wonder if the kids have enough in their fund to cover it. Imagine making your kids pay for their own tuition.

Berks Neighbor said...

About the bra issue: Kate prefaced her response by saying, "my daughters will probably kill me for saying this, but..."
Then, when she was called out on it by a phone question she did a complete 180 saying that her daughter's have NO problem with her talking about it.
So Kate, which is it? Either way you are a lying liar who LIES!

No, I wouldn't find it offensive. I would feel ... let's see, about the same as I feel about Kate discussing bra shopping wiith her twins ... which falls into the "I don't give a crap category."

cathy518 said...

I haven't read through all the posts but I am stunned to learn that Kate discussed the fact that she needed to buy bras for Maddie and Cara. I am mortified for the girls, I can't imagine the humiliation they will feel if someone at school mentions this to them (which sadly is likely)This is a new low for Kate, what wouldn't she do to exploit her children for the entertainment opportunities.

Wow. Still arguing the "not a nurse" point?

I am not a nurse, but I work with RNs almost everyday in a professional capacity and this argument is PATHETIC. To keep harping that Kate is not a nurse because she doesn't have a BSN is PATHETIC. It's an insult to RNs everywhere.

You'd get a hell of a lot more respect if you'd simply say, Kate does not have a BS, but she is an RN. All a BSN means is that the person took extra English, math, electives to add up to a BS per college requirements. It doesn't mean: extra special, smarter, better RN. They ALL have to take the same requirements and they all have to pass the same board exam.

Like it or not, KATE IS A LICENSED RN--DEAL WITH IT.

Just --- WOW. And I cannot stand Kate. She disgusts me. But RNs (most) are hard working, well meaning and underappreciated. Give them ALL the respect they deserve.

I sometimes question myself. Why am I here - reading and posting? Really, there is NO other blog site that I participate in. (Excluding family.) There is no other "celebrity" that I follow or care much about.

I have seen posts from other women expressing the same Gosselin attention that is out of character for them.

I speculated that it is because we are re-living some association with a similar crazy person from our past. We couldn't understand then and reviewing Kate gives us a chance to grab an explanation that eluded us at the time. I also think unfairness drives us crazy!
...
==============================
This describes me so well, except that the "similar crazy person" from my past is me.

The relationship between my ex and I reminds me so much of the way Jon and Kate interacted.

My ex was a little younger than me and was the follower. I was the one in control and making all the decisions. And he followed me without question. There was even one instance of stupid, embarrassing behavior on my part that he followed right along and repeated with me. As the years went on, though, I got tired of being followed and became more and more of a harridan, yelling at him and ridiculing him for every little thing. Believe it or not, I even would wake him up to tell him he was "breathing too loud". And there were the corrections to his pronunciations and grammar, some of which I have since learned were my mistakes. I was the one that decided we should get divorced, and it was such a relief the day I made that decision.

But, I'm not totally like Kate because I know how wrong I was. I watch because I see myself, but I thank God that he never sent any children into our lives to be damaged by my behavior. And I am so empathetic for Jon knowing how a loving, easy going, young man will follow someone like Kate and me.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Sillimom I agree with you except the part about how we don't know how the twins feel. Kate herself said one of them was embarrassed, would kill her for sharing this, ran away from the store, hid behind a book. That's plenty of info for me to say comfortably they would not want her talking about this. And for argument's sake even if they did want her to talk about it, why not tell a kid honey I appreciate your openness but certain things aren't for the public to know? These years it is far more common for a kid to be embarrassed. Your kids are the exception not the rule.

Ex Nurse said...

So, while the kids are away at school, Kate is and amazing stay-at-home-mom. But, during her kids' break, she schedules this radio gig. If this isn't paid, as most of us think, how does it make sense to pay a babysitter when there is no income to offset that expense. Kind of takes away her own argument about nursing being too inflexible to accommodate her motherly duties.

If she really cared about being home for the kids, many hospitals have weekend programs which should really appeal to Kouponing Kate. Kate, you should be all over this--it is a great deal and better than a coupon-- it is money in your pocket for 16 hours of work that you don't have to, actually, work!

This entail 12 hour shifts (total of 24 hours) per weekend for the equivalent of 40 hours of work. She can work the weekend shifts when Jon has custody, and pick up a few shifts/week, while the kids are in school. Many hospitals have gone to a 10 hour day, so, at most, she would just need someone for a few hours--The kids are gone almost that long. By doing this radio gig, she has proven that she doesn't really care about being home with the kids.
Hospitals need nurses on the weekends, because, nurses that are real mothers (not just plays on TV), want to be home when their children are off. She would be quite popular, because she could volunteer to trade days on vacations and days off.

For those commenters that are cringing at the though, never fear--I have some recommendations that would reduce the harm she could inflict on her patients.
-------Alzheimer's patients: They would forget her
-------Comatose patients: They would never hear or see her
-------Autopsy assistant: Well, pity the pour pathologist
-------Blind/deaf--for obvious reasons

Berks Neighbor said...

Kate tends to put RN's down in the way she scoffs at how little they make, etc. I almost get the feeling that she holds the title but doesn't want to associate with anyone else who does, nor that she wants to go back to that mediocre job.
I hold RN's in High Esteem. I've been cared by some of the most amazing nurses during the most horrible situations. I even have 3 RN's in my family and my soon to be DIL is studying in college to be one as well.
However I can't see Kate ever going back to that career. She all but said she'd rather work at McDonald's than be an RN. (look up the quote posted on this topic that she spoke today on the radio program.) She doesn't do the profession any favors.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
Here's the thing, how does whether or not the child is easily identifiable make any difference whatsoever? If Angelina Jolie talked about bra shopping with her daughters, how could the potentail for "backlash" as you put it, be any less for her children than it is for Kate's? Whether or not a child is "known" has absolutely no bearing on any kind of potential negative impact.

I don't care how in the hell you attempt to denigrate it, the fact remains that Kate Gosselin holds the same license as a Registered Nurse with a college degree. There is nothing UNFAIR or INEQUITABLE about that. Why you are so obsessed with the fact that she attended a diploma program rather than a 4-year college is truly beyond my comprehension. Perhaps that is because I don't hold a degree in psychology.

Bingo. I'd bet that fellow nurses would agree. It's another middle finger to the mediocrity. In this case, nurses.
I think Kate's got a taste of the good life and feels she should not have to go back to working a job she never cared for in the first place. You have to care for people to be a nurse, and that's just not Kate.

She may be a licensed RN but she refuses to work as one because as you say 'most' are hard working. That alone is what is keeping her from resuming that career, which is a good thing because who wants a mean, lazy nurse caring for them. She doesn't deserve ANY respect.

I'd have to say Angelina and Brad's kids are BETTER known than the Gosselin twins. As for the bra comment, if it had been the first time Kate had ever talked about her children's private lives then yes, it would be pretty much a nothing comment. But as it is the millionth time...

Tamara exactly. Other random celebs aren't known for exploiting their children's boundaries so yes one rogue comment probably would be forgiven and why not as we are all human and make mistakes. It is the repeatedly non stop violation of her children's boundaries that sets Kate apart. This is not the only thing she's ever done to hurt them. She's on hurt them number 506.

Check Please! said...

For people asking, Sirius 107 replays Broadminded every morning before the new show. So if they stick to the schedule, today's episode will air Monday AM from 6-8. I realize it doesn't help those who aren't subscribers.
I don't believe podcasts of the show are available for purchase. Even if they were, I wouldn't recommend wasting your money.
And I'm sure there are people out there who recorded it somehow. So if you are okay digging around for pirated content, you can always go that route. Also something I wouldn't recommend BTW. ;)

(I keep wanting to shorten my screen name, but CP is a terrible choice!)

AuntieAnn said...

Good question to the people who have asked about Kate's personal bra shopping. Why won't she talk about that?

Kate doesn't respect her children or their privacy because she made a lot of money by selling it. She sick and twisted and excuse me while I bring this up once again: How would SHE feel if someone took a picture of her shit and I mean that literally. It's the VERY same intrusion of their privacy that she would never expose herself to. Bra or toilet training makes no difference. The woman is so hungry for attention that she has no concern for who or what she uses to get it. THAT is what the issue is here.

And the Kate-logic just keeps on comin' said...

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

Wait, she's willing to work at McDonald's, but says she can't go back to nursing because the babysitter would cost more than she'd earn???? Do Pennsylvania McDonald's pay more than a nurse's salary????

Berks Neighbor said...

Exactly the point AuntieAnn.
It's a double standard when it comes to Kate. She can control what's said about her, and she gets to control whatever she says about her children's private lives. The children have no one able to stand up for them and put a stop to this.
From discussing the expulsion of the kids last year, to the break down of one of the twins during the divorce, and more, this woman has exploited every private moment her children have had just for profit and gain. She is despicable and an abomination when it comes to her parenting.

Katie Cry-duh said...

So typically Kate: kids, you can't go on the Internet and its all your dad's fault. Bitch

Let's remember Kate didn't go to college for nursing.

Correct me if i'm wrong but don't most if not all hospitals want some form of a degree.?

She doesn't even have an associate degree so why should a hospital hire her.

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

This AGAIN? She is a Registered Nurse. That means that she passed the same exam as someone with an AA or BA. It's rather silly to ask why a hospital would hire a nurse who completed a diploma program when it is hospitals that offer those programs. I doubt that their goal is to train nurses that they refuse to hire. Not to mention that Kate has worked in a hospital, so clearly her path to becoming an RN did not prevent a hospital from hiring her. Why would that preclude her from employment now? (Being out of the field for a period of time might well be an issue, but her lack of a degree is not.)
________

I never said KG wasn't an RN.

However I think she lacks the qualifications of being a good nurse.

Most people would hire the better educated person

I'd have to say Angelina and Brad's kids are BETTER known than the Gosselin twins. As for the bra comment, if it had been the first time Kate had ever talked about her children's private lives then yes, it would be pretty much a nothing comment. But as it is the millionth time...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Thanks, Tamara, and I'm sure you're right. lol. Like I said, I'm not an Angelina Jolie fan. You made the point so much better than I did.

Here's a lovely pic of Kate during her interview.

Kate - The thing that most and best defines you:

You are a HORRIBLE mom.

The second thing that defines you:
Those 8 possessions of yours surely aren't treated with respect by their mom. Their mom sells their most intimate details for her own benefit. Hope you enjoy your tanning sessions that they paid for with embarrassment. Again.

AuntieAnn said...

Berks, yes. She's maligned the very word. She is as ill-equipped at parenting as she is at dancing and public speaking. Her only talents are lying and grifting and she's not even a good liar anymore.

So, while the kids are away at school, Kate is and amazing stay-at-home-mom.
------------------------------------------------
Kate is not a "sahm". She's a sham! :)

readerlady said...

Check Please -- I freely admit that I dislike Kate intensely and I'm sure that colors my reactions to her various "activities". I try to be fair and open minded and I do cut her some slack on certain issues (For example, I think it makes perfect sense for her to have another car to use when she isn't transporting the kids. It saves wear and tear on the BBB and must surely get better gas milage. I do, however, think that TWO alternate vehicles, including a luxury sports car, is over the top). I think what Kate did to the twins on a National radio show was outrageous. I would feel the same way if it had been Reece Witherspoon, Angelina Jolie, Katie Holmes, Kelly Ripa, Jennifer Garner, or any other famous mom with daughters. Shopping for a first bra is something that belongs between a mother and daughter, UNLESS the daughter chooses to discuss it. The fact that Kate said one of the girls was so embarrassed she ran out is proof to me that the girls don't want something like this discussed with the whole world. I remember when I got my first bra. I was mortified to tears that my mother told my Dad, let alone anyone outside the family. Thankfully, he handled it beautifully. He never said a word, but he began treating me like a lady -- holding chairs, helping me on with my coat, any number of other courtesies he would offer to an adult woman. But I digress. Kate has put her kids' lives out there for public consumption. We already know far more about them than is healthy for them or for us. She violated their privacy. There's no excuse in the world that covers that.

I can't believe Kate's still using that old excuse that it would cost too much in childcare for her to return to nursing. I have several friends who are nurses. They work 3 12 hour shifts a week and are considered full time. She could send the kids to Jon on w/e's, work 12 hour shifts on Fri - Sunday, and need little, if any, childcare.

Kate, in her limited memory, can't think of any time the kids wanted to stop filming. How about the sign the twins had up saying "no cameras"? One of the boys asking the camera crew not to film them (but the crew continued to film anyway)? One of the boys covering his face when he saw cameras? She's such a dim glow.

Tucker's Mom said...

Question for all-- When celebs/entertainers/personalities do radio, do they usually have a photographer take pics and post them on sites like GossipCenter or the like? Does Kate call a pap to take photos whenever she does radio?
I ask because it seems like Kate got wardrobe, makeup and hair for this gig, first thing in the morning. I'd go in jeans, comfy shoes and a cup of coffee!'
What up with that?

Tamara said...

Now and days a fair number of radio programmes are often shown either on tv or the internet, and even if they aren't pictures are very often taken.

With Kate she probably would look better in your jeans and comfy casual lol. I wonder if we'll see any pap pics from her trip. It might show just how hard her manager is working now that she is off TLC's plate completely.

AuntieAnn said...

Tucker's, I think Steve dresses Kate and I'm not kidding. That dress she's wearing seems like something a man would pick out. He probably finds her terribly attractive in her little black dress no matter what time of the day it is. Ugh.

Flight of the Kiwi said...

Question, what is the hourly wage (estimate) for a nurse in PA? What is the hourly wage for a babysitter? What is the hourly wage at McDonald's?

By her logic, she ought to be looking to be a babysitter. Perhaps she could take her kids with her when she babysits...

Problem solved.

PS- If SHE needs security, and it's Steve, is there "security" for the kids when she takes Steve away? Horrible things have been said, and in some cases are still being said, about Jon. Shouldn't he have security? Or at least security when the kids are with Jon? If only her, why?

A thought - She was a "contract employee", no? I don't think she got "severance" however there may have been an amount to be paid should TLC opt out. . Hence her 6 months of no job search. She now sees that running out.

Perhaps that $250,000.00 per epi included all costs associated, so her actual "paycheck" that she took to the bank wasn't that high. Again, Regardless, she made plenty and it appears to have been poorly managed - or like money she and Jon had in the bank that she felt was "ours" and shouldn't be touched for caring for the tups. I think she said that in some such way in the whine for an extra year of a nurse to "help" her? Admittedly, could be off about that.

*******
I think you're on to something. What woman goes to a radio gig first thing in the morning and puts on a LBD? It looks forced, like she's trying too hard.
I'd say this about someone who wasn't so odious to me-- Kate has horrible fashion sense. Really, a lack of it. She has no personal style. Women who look effortless look beautiful.

Ex Nurse said...

Kate also had to complete 20-30 (don't remember exact hours) professional continuing education hours in order to qualify for the most recent renewal. this requirement was recently added. She is fully certified as a Registered Nurse in Pennsylvania, whether we like it or not. She has had plenty of time on her hands to take a refresher course, available online.

This infighting between nurses is stupid--every couple of months, the same fights are fought every time, spurred on, I am convinced, by trolls. The only reason I am responding at all is because chefs summer is a regular poster who has, somehow, managed to have incorrect information--I am giving her the benefit of the doubt.

readerlady said...

Zoe 151 -- Wow! That post took a lot of courage. You may rest assured that, although you say you BEHAVED like Kate, you are NOT like Kate. You have the intelligence and insight to recognize your behavior and the integrity to own it. Those are traits that Kate lacks.

The Bitter End said...

A couple of observations here:

1. It's not OK to discuss your children's underwear in public.

2. The defining moment in Katie Irene's downfall is the Palin camping show. She has relived the dialog and events in her mind many times. It should not be surprising that Katie's story has no foundation in the truth. In her mind she got one of her children to agree that Katie should leave...thus "the kids" wanted to go. Somebody has to be blamed. I do however, find it odd that the best that money can buy in waterproof outdoor equipment caused Katie to get wet. The other odd tidbit is this. Where in the hell does Katie think a pontoon boat can come to earth? By definition, the answer is on water. Then you walk to land in your brand new LL Bean waterproof boots. (you idiot).

3. Check - You say you are not a Katie fan. "Heavens No! LMAO". I find the LMAO to be a tell that you are a sheeple.

4. I've said in the past that the affair with Pizza Boy started in Park City, UT and it is the reason Beth Carson rode off into the sunset. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

5. Katie keeping her kids off the internet is a hoot. I got news for you babe. If their old enough to wear big girl underwear, they're old enough to get around your rule on this. They know. They're read enough to know whats up with your image (and Daddy's image). You're going to have to live with that. It's only going to get worse. Much much worse. You say you have thick skin and it (what people say about you) just makes you stronger. What about the brood? I hope you have the shrink fees figured into your budget.

6. To the poster who went to the prestigious university: The point is that Katie downright says she went to college. Maybe she didn't say it today, but she does say it. That is what the stink is about.

Cheers

Ah, looks like a black top and short skirt and patent leather heels (really? morning radio?). The irony here is Kate denying that she's had a boob job, and there she is, posing sideways for a photo where her boobs are in the next zip code.
It's like a kid denying he ate the candy bar while there's chocolate smeared all over his face!
Boob job? What boob job?

AuntieAnn said...

Tucker's Mom - it sure begs the question: is there anything she IS capable of doing on her own? Jon had to pick out her clothes for her too. She's really quite useless in any capacity.

THANK YOU. The whole point, which I seemed to fail to make, is about her continual LIES.

NJGal51 said...

Just took a look at the pictures of Kate at Sirius and I can't believe that she's still denying the boob job. Admin, you really do need to do a side by side comparison. Those bolt-ons look like torpedoes ready to launch!

Pity Party said...

I wonder how TLC feels about her telling everyone they low-balled her for all those years when they provided for her every need.

Quite frankly, there is nothing about PB that would ever make me feel secure.

Looks like he is planning to make his money selling photos of KT. Good luck with that one - I am thinking the price has gone way down.

Winsomeone said...

Kate is the only person I know who has lost lots of weight, and have her breasts grow larger.

Woah, Nellie! Those are BIG jugs!! I think she got thee BESTEST bra...I also see she has on black nail polish ( in the other link someone gave )
Kate's so kool!!

chefsummer said...

Kate's boobs are as real as her hair.

Katie Cry-duh said...

Holy crap, she looks deformed!! Her head and jugs look like they belong to a giant. Are dare I say, she looks huge!

AuntieAnn said...

I just knew she was a shapeshifter.

abc said...

Why doesn't Kate ask the company that created her 'good bra' if she could endorse their bras for a percentage of sales? She could rake in a tidy sum.

NJGal51 said...

Looks like Kate is tweeting with or has been teweeted by something called @singlemombooks. Maybe she'll try to work a deal with them. Of course it might only be some type of blog or twitter account.

Westcoaster said...

From the pose in that picture, I think the wrong bra was discussed. Yikes is right.
And I do agree that a post with before/after side pics would be entertaining.

Looks like the spring break trip was Mommy's limo ride to DC.

hey jude said...

Mom of 6 Ohio,

Thanks for your support.I just wish Kate would go away.Time to remember she's mediocre,just like the rest of us. I hope it's not the kids' money she's spending while she's circling the drain.
