Fred Savage has no regrets about child stardom: Love the work, not the fame

The Wonder Years boy wonder says that Little League churns out a lot more murderers than showbiz ever did, and that he would have no problem with his own kids becoming child actors


Fred Savage, now 35, a father of two boys and a successful director and producer (most recently, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphlia and Best Friends Forever) this week dismissed suggestions that child stardom leads to terrible things. But a look back at his childhood yields some obvious clues as to why little Kevin Arnold turned out so well--and why other child stars under different circumstances crumble. 

Dad kept his day job. Savage's family, originally from the Chicago area, kept a home there for years after all three of the Savage kids hit it big in Hollywood. Dad Lew kept working as a real estate agent. (We can't help but notice, parents keeping their day jobs seems to be one of the most common factors when it comes to child stars growing into successful adults. It's good to see Jon back at a day job. When will Kate go back?)


Even as a child, Savage seemed to feel a sense of relief no one was counting on him to support his family. Said Savage when he was just thirteen-years-old: "A job is what you do to make money to support yourself. But I'm not acting to support my family or myself.  I just do it for fun.  When it starts to become hard work and I'm not enjoying myself, then it's time to stop."

College bound. Savage put acting on hold to attend Stanford University. He graduated in 1999 with a degree in English. (Other successful child stars also went to college.)

'Fame shouldn't be an end result': Staying away from the celebrity lifestyle and doing it because you love the work, not the fame. Said Savage"Fame was never a big part of my experience. I didn't hang out with celebrities or live a celebrity lifestyle. Fame can come and fame can go. When it was never a part of your life to begin with, you don't miss it. For me, it was always about the work ... I just liked being on set and working. Fame shouldn't be an end result. That's a dangerous game to play and never part of the equation for me and still isn't." During his childhood, the family made their home in the quiet, distinctly un-Hollywood neighborhood of Tarzana, near the Wonder Years set.

Just a normal kid. Savage had chores and made an allowance of nine dollars a week. He said his parents never pressured him to act: "They're both very generous, kind, loving people who are fair and very supportive. They never push me.  They say, 'You don't have to do anything you don't want to do.  We'll love you even if you don't do it.  If you want to stop, you can."

Family First. Said Savage's dad Lew, who took a flight to Los Angeles every weekend from Chicago, "If Fred worked in Timbuktu we'd be there. I'd probably come by elephant on weekends. A parent just does that by instinct for his kids. Things have changed for us, of course. But the family is the most important thing."

Good job, Mr. and Mrs. Savage.

Lately, Kate seems to pick up around a hundred new followers almost daily. That seems odd to me, since she is rarely in the news any more.

Kate Doesn't Rate said...

I always liked Fred Savage. Good guy.

This is the first year kids don't have matching outfits for Easter. Also the first Easter since the younger ones were born that TLC isn't in their lives. Coincidence? Nope. No one to buy the expensive matchy matchy new outfits.

Bet she bought herself a new outfit, though she won't be on TV or anything.

Her first comment to the Hola person about Jon going to court for "not paying child support" was that she "wouldn't be surprised." What an asshole. Especially since she knew the truth.

like I said, I can't talk about court orders/numbers

&&&

Translation, Jon PAYS HIS SUPPORT and she damn well knows it.

How in the hell did they figure he's behind? He works. And we know Kate she would scream it from the rooftops.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Fake Twitter, I have no idea. I think Kate might have set it up as a preemptive strike to spin this. Who knows.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Not sure what to make of it but I think she knows anyone can read the docket (you could walk down today and get it) and was getting nervous that this was going to come out spinning toward him and quick had to do something.

Or maybe her sheeple heard something. Or maybe it's a coincidence who knows. I mean when trashing Jon is your life's work you're probably going to hit on a coincidence eventually!

It just disgusts me that knowing that she KNOWS why she is going back to court she lets a lie that makes him look like a deadbeat prevail. She is pure evil.

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

Kate is evil, twisted and sneaky.

We always said that Twitter would be her undoing.

Not a Sheeple said...

I think Kate set this up. It's typical for her to allude to something awful about Jon, while (poorly) pretending to take the high road.

Carmen said...

Admin, how do you know for sure that Jon pays his child support?

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

I had never thought about it that way Admin. Trashing Jon, conveniently not dispelling rumors about Jon, possibly being the "source" in ragmag articles, scraping to get on low-budget talk shows to trash Jon and twatting on her bought and paid for twitter to smear Jon (with questionable, probable shill accounts) IS her work, her only work. Being consumed with hate, revenge and bitterness is her full time job, no wonder she is so exhausted all the time. She has no contact with family, no friends and no meaningful male relationship in her life. Yet she imagines she is a lifestyle expert and can't understand why Hollywood isn't stampeding to create a show for her. What a pathetic POS.

On a lighter note, Happy Easter everyone! I've been trying to keep up and have really missed the wise & witty banter here! I've been insanely busy in my mediocre life. Let us rejoice in this season of rebirth and count our blessings as we gather with our families to celebrate.

Funny how this "AuntJemima" account closed after just one tweet.

Looks like Kate is trying to clean up her own
diarrhea.

Something is rotten in Denmark...

Anonymous said...

I was thinking Jon set it up, actually. More ammo for him to use in court re her not being able to say "no comment." She just can't help herself and he knows 100% how she will respond. She is tediously predictable.

Westcoaster said...

She is, and will continue to be, a piece of s#%¥ where the ex is concerned. Hope he prevails in court, and she will not have the TLC machine behind her this time. Glad the girls are finally not matchy, but we all know it has less to do with a decision about independence but is ALL about nobody picking up the Easter dress check. Coming after the LV junket for her, it's even more pathetic.

Guess it's ok to eat eggs everyday, but a craft project that might involve, horrors, some mess, nope, no way. Enjoy the batteries, socks and defrosted candy, kids, and do enjoy today's manual labor, err fun, day.

hoosiergirl said...

She ignores the majority of tweets, yet she chooses to answer this one. I find that highly suspect. Kate thrives on drama. If there isn't any, she'll create it.

Because even Kate admits he does?

Also, he works. So either he pays or they could garnish his wages. When you work it's impossible to get out of it because they'll just garnish your wages.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
All about what? What is publicly available information on the court docket?

There is quite a big difference between repeating public information and Kate not dispelling a lie and a rumour.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Just wanted to mention that PA will garnish the paycheck for child support. The payer doesn't have the choice. If he is working he is paying. In addition if someone is behind, the court will add on to the current payment a litle bit until the arears are up to date. This I know from personal experience.

&&&

resident you beat me too it I didn't see your post.

I agree 100%, if he is working he is paying.

Which makes this whole "I saw Jon wasn't paying" tweet all the more suspect.

Kate should know full well if Jon is working, he is paying--either out of pocket or garnishments. Some people prefer a garnishment, since it takes away the hassle of it. For her to suggest he might not be, i.e. it wouldn't surprise me, is patently absurd. She KNOWS he is by the very fact he is working.

It couldn't be more obvious she looked for the first opening she could find to try to spin something a certain way. Does she think it won't come out eventually? She's so dumb. And I find it insulting that she thinks that there aren't people out there who are well versed in child support and know all about garnishments and how any PA father who works, PAYS.

Also this explains her anger on twitter lately and all the fights, eh?

A Pink Straight Jacket For Kate said...

Looks like the "tweet" account MAria@Hola3792 (that started this whole sh*tstorm), was only opened specifically to "tell Kate" about what her "niece" discovered.

Sounds suspect.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Just for the sake of argument (though I don't remotely believe it) say Jon is being pulled into court because he hasn't paid child support for a while. Doesn't she get that saying she has no idea about this and hasn't heard just makes HER look incredibly stupid and lazy?

&&&

No kidding. She doesn't think about her own lies. It makes her look like she doesn't keep track of what he is paying, that she doesn't pay attention to court dates, and that she could give a crap what's going on with money that belongs to the children. Her own lies make her look stupider than the truth.

Just tell the truth, we're having a dispute over custody. Or no f-ing comment, better yet.

Gift of grab said...

Winsomeone, she BUYS followers. Period. I have done an informal tracking of her follower numbers, she typically does increase anywhere from 75 to 150 per day. Day in, day out, not dependent on news or on where the show is airing. She occasionally gets a little extra blip when people tweet about watching in the UK, for example, but all in all, there's nothing to explain the steady increases over time EXCEPT purchasing. At the beginning of March, she was at about 79,450. On April 1, it was 85,450. So 6,000 in 30 days. It seems to me that up until the last month or so, she was buying about 1,000 a week up since last October (or thereabouts). Now it looks like she may have cranked it up to about 1,500/wk.

Saw the exchange on Twitter about court--is she NUTS? How could he be back in court (especially if it's about child support) and she knows nothing? Is that even possible, Admin?

Not a Sheeple said...

Why has so much money that child support is superfulous?
If my ex stopped paying cs, believe me, I'd know it to the penny and be feeling pretty desperate.
Kate tweets before she thinks.

Huh, I hadn't thought of Jon setting this up. It would be clever. After all Kate has done, who'd believe her?

Localyocul said...

I'm not sure if their custody case was done in Berks County where they live or in Montgomery County where for some reason they had divorce hearings. Berks County offers access to civil dockets but it's $300 per year. I have a custody agreement in PA. To modify custody, first they want you to go to mediation. My ex blew off that set a couple of years ago. Then if you don't agree you go to a Master Hearing who hears both sides and types up an agreement. My DD was 13 when I tried to get a minor modification of a decade-old order. She did get to talk to the Master privately and he did let her wishes guide him. That usually is it but my ex was so angry that I dared get a modification to allow my child to do extracurricular activities he demanded a trial and tried to get full custody. Which of course failed. If they are really going to one of these steps for custody, doesn't she know she will look like an idiot showing up for something she claimed she knew nothing about?

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

Right? She said it wouldn't surprise her as if she had no idea if he wasn't paying. When my bank got taken over by another bank the new bank holds the CS check. So I used to get it on Fri then it started being deposited on Monday. I had a whole routine of bill paying/grocery shopping based on the fact that it came on the Fridays between my pay Fridays and I now suffer with the change...the weekend grocery shopping I used to do with the CS money now has to be done with stretched paycheck money. Must.Be.Nice.To.Be.Rich

EM said...

Count me in for kate being behind this tweet. She wouldn't be in violation if she said "not true." She also could have ignored the tweet like she does so many others each day.
Whatever is happening in court kate would know. Her attorney would advise her of any motions filed. To say I have no idea is plain stupid. Simple to ignore or say I cant discuss WITHOUT alluding that it may be true. Besides when has kate ever followed a gag order. We all know already his support only cover "lunches", we know kate complains of raising kids ALONE. She never keeps her mouth shut when Jon is involved unless he is doing something right.

Also, considering Jon is working..Jon would simply be garnished for nonpayment if he wasn;t paying. Also I guarantee you if Jon missed one payment kate would be shouting from the rafters.

IF and I mean if there is any money discussed I think it would be more of the joint stuff Jon an kate pay. They may just need to go over some details. For instance with Jon mow having the BBB the agreement for payment on that may need changed.

She complains so much that she's thisclose to being thrown out on the street and starving she doesn't know if Jon is paying his child support?

Berks Neighbor said...

My thoughts on Kate's latest twitter binge:
She's desperately trying to keep in the limelight. Someone set up this fake twitter account to ask an oh so 'pertinent' question that JUST needed to be answered about Jon and court.
These SCREAMS desperation. And anything that can throw Jon under the bus gets an extra brownie point in Kate's book.
She's not getting any attention (good on the paparazzi and Main Stream Media) so she's throwing her passive aggressive hissy fit all over twitter to see what might be picked up.
The more we ignore her tweeting frenzy the more damage she's doing to herself.

Kate is a twit said...

Kate posted a new "Shoka Diaries" on her website yesterday sometime during the day. She has yet to tweet about it as far as I can tell. Even when someone asked her when she would finish her website, she didn't mention it. I wonder why?

Even her tweeties haven't mentioned it-not even Milo. It just seems kind of weird.

Tamara said...

Ha admin, you bought my post over before I could.

I hope it wasn't Jon. If it was then he's dropping to the same level as Khate, and that is not good.

Tweet-le De Tweet-le DUMB said...

Could this custody thing have something to do with the cruise and the twins?

PR Twit said...

Someone is tweeting to MSKandAssocInc that Kate Gosselin is trying to create a PR mess for Jon. Will his reps come to the rescue? Will his lawyers? Now that Jon isn't fighting against the TLC juggernaut will the judge force a gag agreement on both parents?

New Kid said...

I'm copying this from the last thread, not because I am SO IMPORTANT! but as an apology for my silliness:

Please forgive me for sounding like a little brat. I read through the comments and they must have hit me at a low moment (deep in the box of wine?) because I overreacted.

I hate people who post comments on blogs and leave ceremoniously in a snit, only to return, but here I am, looking like an idiot. So, take me back, please? I promise to behave. (Not really. I can't promise that, I'm too ditzy.)

prairiemary said...

Just checking in to tell my blogging "friends" that my daughter had the twins this morning, and both babies are little boys! Levi and Luke, can you tell what kind of music she listens to?!
The twins have 2 big brothers, and 1 little sis, 5 kids age 5 and under. What little blessings they are! Yes, using lots of !!!, so very happy all are doing well. Happy Easter everyone!!

PJ's momma said...

New Kid, you do not look like an idiot, not at all. If anything, you look introspective because you feared being lumped with people who post such nasty things to, let's face it, innocent people who truly do like Kate for whatever reason, and have no idea what sort of abuse they'll open themselves up to for making an innocent comment to her.

hoosiergirl said...

Congrats prairiemary!

New Kid said...

Kate always makes a big point about how she has to work so hard because she is the sole support of the kids, so Jon's "token payment" (yeah, right) shouldn't matter to her anyway.

She is sinking to ever new lows. And I would have thought she couldn't get any worse.

EM said...

oh please..kate is stuffing 800 eggs for Easter. That's so ridiculous. What the heck would you even put in 800 eggs?

Kate is a twit said...

prairiemary-Congratulations to you and to your daughter and her family! Grandchildren are a blessing indeed.

New Kid said...

AND she is waiting until today-tomorrow to stuff 800 eggs. Guess what she will be moaning about later?

PJ's momma said...

EM, where do you see Kate's stuffing 800 eggs? I know "TLC" stuffed hundreds of them last year when they were still paying for everything - is she actually doing it on her own dime? No! Say it isn't so!

AuntieAnn said...

Admin, do Jon and Kate personally have to be present in court or can their attorneys represent them? Just wondering if this isn't just Kate and her clever (or so she thinks) little wording trick as in "I don't know if HE'S going to court but wouldn't surprise me..."

Kate Doesn't Rate said...

EM:

Maybe she's putting one penny in each egg. That's only eight bucks.

Prairiemary: congratulations to you and your daughter!

butterfly said...

congrats Prairiemary! How ridiculously cute for easter- two newborn twins :D
5 kids under 5? I am NOT jellus, LOL, that is handful- good luck to your family!

Happy Easter, Passover, and a belated Nowrose everyone.

Kate Doesn't Rate said...

PJ's momma, she tweeted that she's stuffing 600-800 plastic eggs for the kids.

Ridiculous.

New Kid said...

Kate's excesses really are repulsive to me. She has 8 children, not 20! Why does she have to stuff 800 eggs? Have two dishwashers, two washer-dryers, I believe she said she has FOUR freezers, and she buys in bulk suitable for an army barracks. For a family of 9? My birth family had 7 people, and we made do with one of each major appliance.

And only 500 eggs. (Yeah, right!) We didn't do candy and gifts for Easter, ever! We dyed a few dozen eggs on Saturday, went to church Sunday morning, then did the egg hunt in the yard, and sat down to Easter dinner. Gosh, I feel so deprived.

AMD said...

Re: Egg-stuffing
Kate Gosselin ‏ @Kateplusmy8
@TaraG0605 yes.. Stuffing is on the list for today and tomorrow. 6-800 this year!!
----------------------------------------------
So this could be anywhere from 6 eggs to 800. Wouldn't it be simpler and more meaningful to give each child one really special egg?

To quote my daughter and her friends on facebook, "Pics or it didn't happen". I'm guessing no pics. LOL

wayward said...

Kate really blew it with this fake slam. PA does garnish wages and does anyone think for one hot minute Kate wouldn't take the opportunity to have the money ripped right out of his check and sent straight to her? Would she say "oh don't bother with garnishment, I'll just let him send a check." Hell. to. the. no. The sheeple can close their eyes and pretend Kate is the saint in all this, but PA laws that are on the books and are strictly enforced do not back Kate up.

Two twatter accounts just happen to open today, just to twat Kate about this and the AuntJemima one has already closed? She is nothing if not transparent. Between not denying things she knows are not true and constantly using the defense of "I can do and say whatever I want because u don't know what I went through, they do bad things, illegal things, if u knew what I know you'd understand" she is just slowly digging her own grave.
((()))

Amen, wayward!

Happy Easter blessings to you, and yours :O)


Thank you Pink! :)

Kate Doesn't Rate said...

I think she meant 600-800 eggs. Not 6 to 800.

AuntieAnn said...

Going on an egg hunt is fun but after about 200 wouldn't it turn into a chore? 800 is overkill.

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

Of course she waited until the kids are at home to do a big chore. Let the nannies deal with them right? What a bitch.

I have to say, I have mixed feelings about going something "fun" for Good Friday. Of course I think Kate should do something fun with the kids in general - for goodness sake, she put the poor things to work on their Spring break - but to me Good Friday was always a somber day for reflection. Then again I was raised Catholic so maybe we just have a different view of Good Friday from other Christians? Far be it from me, a lapsed Catholic, to tell other people how to treat the holy days.

Funny story about Good Friday. My grandmother and I used to love watching scary movies, especially ghost movies. One year we went to the video store (remember those?) and rented a movie. After we put the tape in and got settled, we realized it had the wrong movie in it! This one was actually a comedy spoof about exorcism. My grandmother shouted "Ay hodido!" which is kind of a curse way of saying "what a bother/mess." And ran upstairs to grab our rosaries. We were both terrified of the sacrilege of the whole thing! Poor Abuelita, Lita for short, was so afraid that we had committed a cardinal sin. It's something that we laugh about now though :)

emschick1128 said...

New Kid It's so crazy how she over exaggerates everything. 8 kids is a lot but not the army she makes it out to be. I grew up in family of 9 kids so I know first hand. We has one washer, one drier, one fridge and one freezer. My mother wasn't running around like some lunatic either with an exhausting laundry list of errands all day. She just wants everyone to think she is the hardworking,overburdened single mom, blah, blah, blah. Why is so tired all the time? She doesn't work and kids are gone all day. I take everything she says with a grain of salt since she's full of shit half the time or more. 600-800 eggs for the Easter hunt? Yeah right

Berks, I totally agree with your idea of ignoring Kate on twitter.

If that were to happen the Sheeple would get bored quickly, too.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Going back to Fred savage, it's kind of disappointing he acts like child stars gone wrong are just flukes and at least from his interview doesn't acknowledge some of the important choices his parents made. Surely he has to see that what they did to protect him had direct bearing on why he turned out so well. Sure his kids can act because he is one of the few parents who would sufficiently protect them.

Tamara said...

Will she force the kids to find and pick up every.single.egg? Because that many eggs for only 8 kids is a job, not a fun holiday activity. That is, if that number isn't a complete and total lie.

Carezee said...

I checked out the person that sent that tweet about Jon going to court. That twitter account was set up today. The only one that they tweeted to was Kate. The only follower is CrappyDads.com. It has something to do with deadbeat dads. Seems a bit fishy to me. Any thoughts on this?

Girl from Up North said...

Both twitter users asking about Jon in court are now not in existance! Suspicious. Here (Ontario) support for children is typically geared to the income of the payer. If he is in fact ordered to pay 1200 per month that that may be what is deemed reasonable in the circumstances. Hate this deadbeat dad speculation.....

Anonymous said...

I find it odd that once blog talk turned to possibly ignoring her on Twitter, an account was set up by someone asking her about Jon going to court, thus giving her a reason to respond to speculation. Faced with being ignored, she will turn her responses into more publicity. The woman will not be ignored; she will invent if necessary to keep herself relevant.

Carmen said...

Don't any of you think it's possible that one of those "vile, no life, low life" tweeters set up those accounts? They are known to create accounts to taunt or harass others. I don't think Jon or Kate had anything to do with it.

aggiemom09121416 said...

prairiemary#32..

CONGRATULATIONS! Hope daughter and twins are doing well. She has quite a houseful.

Concerning Kate and a custody issue next week: it would be wise of Jon's atty to show how much time Kate spends on twitter instead of with her kids. Even if the helper is with the kids, that isn't good parenting.
Before all this is over with, I wouldn't be surprised if Jon gets full custody.

600-800 eggs for a hunt for 8 kids? that's just ridiculous. (I guess her reasoning is, if all those eggs are stuffed with organic candy, it will make the kids healthier? snark)

Pity Party said...

The kids will need a cotton-picking sack instead of a teeny tiny basket. She is so full of it.

blah blah blah, why's that news? said...

Hey Admin,
Thanks for the post on Fred Savage - I actually listened to the interview on NPR yesterday, and they only touched the surface. I was interested in hearing more about WHY he was able to stay so down to earth. I actually admire the guy for this, but agree with you that he did not provide much info as to how he actually was able to beat the odds.

blah blah blah, why's that news? said...

wow, I say "actually" a lot, don't I.

Kate is a twit said...

Just remember this is Kate who is saying she is stuffing 600-800 eggs. She is the Queen of Exaggeration.

She just wants everyone to know how hard she works for her kids and then she can complain how exhausted she is. Remember at Christmas, how she waxed on about wrapping presents?

prairiemary said...

Thanks, everybody! She had to have a c-section, I hope she is kept in the hospital for 4-5 days, with 3 kids at home, this will be the only rest she will get in awhile.
I missed out on the Easter celebration/food stories. I have always made deviled eggs using Miracle Whip, some mustard and paprika sprinkled on top, I use the same for my potatoe salad. And every Easter, I make alot of Ukrainian Easter bread, using tons of eggs and raisins, we love eating the bread as toast,with real butter, sprinkled with some cinnamon and mace.I bake it in empty, clean coffee cans. Lots of work, but well worth it. kate could use her eggs to make Easter bread, but she would be too lazy. I really enjoyed reading all of the recipes from everyone-see, we have LOTS to talk about besides kate:)And yes, no matter what anyone says, we can all be friends on here, without bad things happening.

Mary said...

This is why I think it is necessary for Jon to be able to set the record straight in some way. Whether he wants to live a public or private life the time has come to tell the truth. Kate has been allowed to get away with this crap for way too long.

I don't think he should go on TV and give all kinds of 10 minute interviews but rather one long interview with someone who would be fair and let him talk. If he does too many interviews he will look like he just wants the attention.

Seriously, he has not been able to defend himself for a long time. Having all kinds of negative things said about him and not being able to respond must have been terrible.

Congratulations, prairiemary! What a wonderful blessing.

Some people live in their own world where if nothing has touched them or hurt them, then there is something wrong with the rest of the world, or it just doesn't concern them period. It sounds like he's not even aware of the problems that come with so many adults who've had childhood fame in the industry.

PJ's momma said...

For real........thanks for setting me straight that she is stuffing so many eggs. That is absolutely absurd. I doubt the friggin' White House has 800 eggs for the annual egg roll. Kidding, of course. What on earth are these kids ever going to have to look forward to when they have so received so much (for nothing) since birth? I feel sorry for them. Reality is going to be tough and it's not their fault.

Congrats on your daughter's new twins! :) What a great Easter weekend for your family. Hope everyone is well.

Re: custody. Curious what Jon will be asking and if he has 'ammunition' to get what he deserves.
I bet the kids will be so happy if he wins more time with them.

It does seem Kate is slacking off in terms of dressing the kids, and her going cheap on them...because they're not on TV or because they are older and don't want to dress like matching dolls?

EM said...

Fred seems to be one of those people who cannot see past his own situation. Sadly a lot of young actors ARE pimped out by their parents..are left alone with directors..(The Carter's)..are made to support their family..and are pushed to work while being expected to give up a childhood because "mommmy sacrificed to get your here."
Fred was very lucky. A lot of times we do see the parent quit their jobs, we have heard of parents spending all of the child's money. We have heard child actors say once the fame went away they were left feeling empty because their whole worth was based on it.
It's irresponsible to sweep under the rug the dirty side of child actors.

I think what bugs me most about children reality stars is that there are zero provisions made to supervise what is happening. Obviously they are not just playing for the camera. I think being judged for being yourself would be even harder.. At least real actor can walk off set and go home. The Gosselin's lived on set. They had very little privacy. The had website's mocking them..they were shown dealing with personal issues..seen getting disciplined etc. I remember being a child. I was easily embarrassed. I would have been mortified to be seen pooping on tv..and would have been so embarassed to be seen being disciplined on tv. Also, when you are with family..that is your time to let go and be yourself. How could you do that when camera's are on and the parent s are playing to them. It would taint the family as superficial. I do not see why anyone would want that. Family alone time is crucial to shaping you into adulthood in my opinion. CAn you imaging growing up and finding out your memories were scripted by a writer and produced by someone else. ugh
At least child actor's know they are playing a role for entertainment. Did the Gosselin's even understand that their life was considered entertainment for millions. YUCK

The 6-800 eggs is just Katespek for:

I didn't lie! I never intended to stuff 800 eggs because we know that in this economy that is way over the top (even though I did have coupons). I finger stutterd when I typed that and only meant to typ 6-80!!!!! OK, so I only did 8 eggs, but that's one for each kid and they were the most spectacular eggs ever becasue I'm the bestest mom in the world. I would have done 80 so they'd have 10 each but I really was exhausted! I didn't take a picture because they ripped into them sooooooo quickly I didn't get a chance.

What a stupid Shoka blog of absolutely no humor or merit. It seemed to center on his being given a purple bandana by the groomer for Easter and boys don't wear purple ( or play with purple dolls, remember Kate telling one of the boys?) Then it went on to say how Shoka no longer can play with rubber chickens, or disrupt the egg hunt(I also want to know why she is having it today- weather in PA?) Is this common? We always had them on Easter itself or the Saturday?

I think Kate wrote this in response to the twitter question as to why her website is not complete and the answer was basically don't you see how many bust I am with at least3 errands to do plus dinner to 'feed? I think it's damage control.

Fred Savage would be singing a different time if his dad had quit his job and pressured him to work and the family took all his money. He was very lucky, had non Hollywood parents with Midwestern values. He should thank them, not act like child stars gone wrong is a fluke. It's really not a fluke at all. It's almost always related to good parenting when things go right.

Freudian slip...I said bust instead of busy, oops.

Mandy said...

Maybe the 6-800 comment was accurate. Could you picture Kate barking out these rules for the Easter Egg Hunt? "Okay, there are six eggs, so two of you won't get any. The first six to get an egg win. And if Hannah and Leah don't get any, two of you must give your eggs to them, and one of you to give your egg away MUST be Joel. You can decide amongst yourselves which one of you has been the most trouble to me lately and that can be the other person."

Okay, that was mean, but she is so horrible it makes me mad. 600-800 eggs is beyond ridiculous. 100 eggs per kid?

Did anyone notice the tweet where someone asked if she still used all organic ingredients to cook for her children, and she said yes? Does she think no one saw her fattening, disgusting blog recipes?

One more thing. No way would Jon make up that account to diss himself. I doubt it was a "tweetie", either. Most likely scenario would be her publicist or Kate herself, trying to generate negative spin against Jon in the tabloids in hopes that the story would be old news by the results of the custody hearing came out.

Congratulations, Prairie Mary!

Laurie said...

Can someone please explain to me how you can hide an excessive number of plastic eggs on your property with a dog that runs free and said dog will not touch any of them? All it takes is a slap of the paw to open them (whether intentional or not) to get to the candy inside. Also, I love my dog to pieces, but the ham bone is used for soup and not given to him (sorry buddy).

PJ's momma said...

Once a viewer, I think Shoka is referring to the chickens he KILLED. And did you catch how they groomed him - as usual? How wonderful is Kate - she can't brush or furminate her lovely dog - she sends him for grooming. I had a big boy like Shoka for 11 years and he loved nothing better than being brushed. He HATED going to the groomer. It's expensive too!

AuntieAnn said...

Shoka is probably happy to get away from Kate to be groomed. Poor thing. He looks as sad as Joel in that pic.

Melissa said...

Had to comment on the 600-800 eggs. Is she serious? Talk about excess. We had a little egg hunt with some on my son's friends (what a concept doing egg hunts with friends!) and we had everyone bring 10-12 eggs to help hide. Wow who knew that we were such awful parents thinking 10-20 candy filled eggs was PLENTY for a child. Time to go stuff 100 more I guess.

Once a Viewer said...

PJ's Momma: Oh, thanks. I thought Shoka was being deprived of his toy rubber chickens. I guess I missed that he killed some live chickens/ Theirs? Yikes!

I know- I had a large dog for 12 years who didn't go to the groomer- and she loved being brushed and all the attention- and now that I have a dog that has hair that grows and does need the groomers ( although no limo or private pick-up for her) she hates it and it's very expensive, including nails and teeth. (Her nails can't be clipped at home because they are very soft? and hard to clip properly) We got this breed as she is non-allergenic (cockerpoo) and a real sweetheart. Our previous dog was a shepherd mix, and so gentle. That's why I hate Kate's fake dog stories and her cruelty in leaving Shoka outside, general rough mean treatment etc..because i happen to love my pets and they are members of the family.

I also misread that the egg hunt was today- apparently Shoka was recalling last year's? Geez, if a reader can't follow Shoka's plots,
maybe they should be better written! lol

Kate tweeted:
....settling into another four days with my kids....plan to over Easter egg,candy and toy them..So excited to see hoppy faces all around!
------

Once again, it's all about the material things with Kate. Make sure her kids are "over-Eastered" with stuff...not one mention about attending church or explaining the true meaning of Easter to them. Nope, it's all about the eggs, candy and toys.

Pure, unadulterated greed is what she's all about...and sadly, it's the message she is teaching her kids.

Sorry...just irritates me, along with her other idiotic nonsense she's been spewing out of Twitter lately.

The court/child support nonsense was unbelievable...I would love it if someone would do some digging to see who really instigated that.

My kids will get a simple Easter basket on Sunday morning...they will look for a few hidden eggs that the Easter Bunny hid...there will be a bit of candy in the baskets, but not much else...and they'll be just as "hoppy" (UGH!) as the Gosselin kids, I guarantee you.

Once a Viewer said...

Sherri O: Yes, that tweet made me sick too. I would think maybe some tweeters would also be disgusted ( except the one who now is a better parent , now that she knows from Kate that you must give toys and candy for every holiday on the calendar) Yes, your Easter sounds fun and modest, like the rest of ours here,and I think we all know the meaning of the occasion regardless if we are religious or not. It is NOT about receiving an over-abundance of material things. How about love, family, sacrifice, gratitude?

Anonymous said...

if Jon Gosselin is indeed going to court next week sounds like Kate will be showing the kids she can give more "treats" to them then their "Daddy"! Therefore, the kids will choose her. Hopefully the children will NOT be tempted and Jon wins more time with his kids! GO JON!!

aggiemom09121416 said...

Kate's trying to prove to the world that she is the better parent because she over indulges her kids. My ex does the same, but they know why he does it, so anything he gives them is just 'stuff'.
Jon is the true nurturing parent, the kids know it, Kate knows it. You can't put a price on that.

Note to Kate: want to make the kids happy? Invite their dad over to watch them hunt Easter eggs, then let him stay for lunch and enjoy the afternoon. If you have to, you can take tweet breaks in your bedroom.

Also giving the kids "things" is bribery. She does not want any of them to say they want to live with their dad. Even though she doesn't really want them around, I bet she needs to keep all 8 in her household for her image and to control them.

Jumping In said...

Settling in for another 4 days with her kids? That sounds odd to me, as if she's counting down the days to the ride back to the bus stop. We will be in for a twitter-fest this long weekend, once she has the kids sufficiently distracted with the 800 eggs that is.

That poor dog does look sad, with 8 children, you'd think someone could brush and bathe him for heaven's sake. He probably gets more attention from the groomer than he gets at home. I often wonder if he gets inside much, other than for photo-ops I mean.

Congrats prairiemary on the birth of your daughter's twins.

Not a Sheeple said...

I can't jump on the "Jon's such a nurturing parent" bandwagon. He left his children in Kate's care while he chased his twenties. He has done a fair job of straightening up, but it's far too soon to give the man kudos as being a good parent.

I do like the idea of Jon and Kate celebrating this holiday together with their children. Those two are going to have to find a way to get along and atleast appear to stand together as parents.

Kate is so bitter and angry I doubt she'd ever try. Jon? I'm not sure he could do it either.

I'm noticing a few of the regulars are leaving Kate and her fans alone today. They've also deleted some. I'm very proud of them. Life is too short to spend 24/7 actively picking on people. Sometimes it's hard to step back and realize what you're doing is wrong until it's pointed out.

KmartSmart said...

Who in God's name is this Twitter person who was privy to Jon's child support information and is now plastering it publicly on Twitter?

Doesn't this person realize that if her "niece" who works at the PA Courthouse was caught looking at this file ( if there was no reason for her to be looking at it ), and then sharing the contents in it, she can be fired?

My mom works at the Courthouse. I had a court case ( going after an insurance company for breach of contract ), and I found out my mom pulled my file to "snoop". I mentioned it to my attorney and she told me to immediately tell my mother to stop, because even as a civil clerk who processed incoming files, if she had no reason to pull my file and just wanted to look, she ( my attorney) could have her fired. My attorney was livid that my mom would do that and I had to tell her not to get my mom in trouble. Of course she didn't because then I would fire HER as my attorney, but she stressed to me how that was a big no-no. Apparently, if you want to look at a public file, you have to fill out a reason WHY you need to look at that file. If you work there and pull it without filing out a reason why, you can lose your job.

Perhaps this courthouse employee who shared this info with a relative needs to be investigated as to why she had Jon's file in order to be privy of that info.

It's funny, my mom processes all kinds of lawsuits and courtcases and NEVER tells anybody anything because she's not allowed, but didn't think twice about snooping in mine. She did it to see if my medical records were in it because she was concerned about that being public record and wanted me to get my file sealed, so her intention was good, but man, my attorney said it was a HUGE no no. If you work in a courthouse, you can't just go pulling files just to snoop.

The media can walk into courthouses all the time and request to look at public records, but you have to fill out a form stating why. I hope Jon looks into this and gets that employee in trouble.

That said, what do they really think Jon has to where he can pay more than $40 a day? The man has nothing! Kate was awarded most everything in the divorce and she bled him dry! What does SHE contribute financially? They are living off money the kids made! It's just that Kate has all the access to it and Jon does not.

If Kate were forced to pay child support from her Coupon Cabin income, there is NO WAY she could even afford $40 a day. Those kids are being supported with their own money...NOT Kate's money. And look how long Kate and TLC forbade Jon from making an income in the media, and now the stupid ignorant sheeple are mad that he can only afford $40 a day? What do they expect the man to do? He already lives on a pittance.

Kate does not need to live in a mansion with 27 acres. She does not need that lavish lifestyle. If she lived in a regular sized house and had one vehicle, then what Jon is contributing is not that bad for what he makes.
And she shouldn't have been such a bitch to run him off in the first place. If she was a decent human being, he'd probably still be there and there would be no need for child support payments.

Anyway, my whole rant was for the purpose that I hope Jon looks into who the courthouse looky-loo was and gets her in trouble.

And Kate should have her hands slapped by a judge for tweeting "I'm not surprised" about Jon being accused of being behind in payments.

I hate that bitch more and more everyday. She's such a vile human being.

NJGal51 said...

I really don't see anything wrong with taking a dog to the groomer. Mine goes for a grooming once a month. He goes to doggy day camp two to three times a month to play with his pals. It only costs us $15 for him to be in day camp all day and the groomer (same place) is only $21 so $36 for a full day "spa" (plus tip). Of course he only needs a bath, whisker trim and clearing of the anal glands so maybe that's whay his grooming potion isn't that expensive. He loves day camp and the groomer. Of course we take him there and pick him up at the end of the day and we brush between groomings.

Thanks, Auntie. I now have a mental picture of a tiny Kate with straw hair, boobs jumping around freely, with a set of huge chompers latched on to some guy's ankle, and it's pretty darn funny!

Prairie! Congratulations! What a wonderful Easter blessing. Two new births in the springtime. Just perfect!

I'm late to the party with the court thing, and haven't read all of the comments. So Jon is supposedly behind on support payments and is going to court? Is this for collection, or for a change in custody? If it's back payment, it's kind of odd that it would involve the courts. I have a friend (in PA) who was behind in payment when he was temporarily laid off, and he was sent a notice by domestic relations. No court was involved. They set up a meeting, and he had to go to domestic relations office with a check in the amount of his arrearage or they would automatically deduct it from this pay check. Why would attorneys need to be involved?

PJ's momma said...

Holy Moses, NJGal51, I want your groomer! We had one that required grooming and it was $40-50 each time. Even our doggy day care is $20. You are lucky to enjoy such good prices! And I know you do it because you love your dog. I'm sort of glad we don't have to do that anymore, but I do take my terrier in once a while, to get her fur trimmed back. She sheds like you could not believe, is the cutest little doodle ever, but sometimes all that long hair flying around is too much and we take her in to get it cut, so at least the curtains of hair are tiny hairs. And when we do - it's $50-60!

I wonder if she was always like this or if fame and all the freebies and attention she got after having so many kids went to her head. Where is Gosselin Give Back's comment made me think about this - again.
April 5, 2012 9:56 PM

Having the show didn't go to her head. She was always this way. She has been seeking out special attention, primarily through the media, since she learned of her HOM pregnancy.

What the show did was feed her misplaced sense of entitlement and unwarranted self-importance. "Being famous" has justified her delusion of being special and deserving of all accolades, material items, money, whatever.

Her lack of gratitude is a perfect example of how she feels so special, so above others. She doesn't have to be thankful for what she has. She DESERVES it. She is ENTITLED to it. In fact, she NEEDS MOAR, so somebody get on that quick!

As for people "coming out" and talking about her. The main reason is simply the harm that could come to the children. As awful as a person may be, there's no need for that persons' children to be reading about it on the internet.

Also, people around here don't give a flying f%#k about her. No one feeds her ego because she is treated just like anyone else. A perfect example is a story Berks Neighbor (I think) recently relayed about the tanning salon. Something along the lines of Kate wanted to be granted access through the back door and the Salon was like "Lolwut, no. Who do you think you are?"

Kate tries to make herself out to be more than she really is. And the locals laugh at her about it. Going to the media to "tattle tale" on Kate would be like creating a blog about the kid at the grocery store who bagged your bread wrong as squished it. Meaning: file under "Who Gives a Crap."

=========================================
Thank you! :)

TLC Stinks 95, you are correct. Narcissists worship at the altar of material items and they assume their children and everyone else do too. Even if you protest and say $$/things are not important to you, they think you're lying... ala Kate insisting we would all pimp our kids out on TV for $$ too. It is such a simple way to wealth, she is unable to believe everyone else isn't doing it. Fortunately, the G kids are smart enough to know that all the candy and toys in the world does not dispel the day to day wrath of their mother.

I'm living this same scenario in my own family and the similarities are scary. Since leaving Princess Bitchface (as we unfondly call her) my brother looks 10 years younger. He has his confidence back, as he was just as downtrodden and whipped as Jon was- it's a coping mechanisim they must employ to survive. He is dating a beautiful young woman and the kids love her. She has really bonded with the youngest, who from day one really never got much attention from PBF because she was too busy with the other two and their activities. The little one cries when it's time to go back to her mother. My narcissist is getting her ass handed to her. The judge sees right through her and has warned contempt many times. Her many calls to the police end up with the officer scolding HER. She is probably going to have to move in with her parents. Kate's similar time of reckoning has been considerably delayed due to the kid's money and TLC backing her up. But it IS coming.

Jon has ALWAYS been a good parent. I've known him for quite some time. I've seen his interactions with his kids. Never for one minute did his "chasing" interfere with his parenting.

Ingrid said...

I have always wondered if Jon would get control of the kids' money if he got custody. (whether he used it or not, but I hope not) I still think an impartial trustee should be in charge of it and not the parents. Someone who would make sure they aren't touching it unless there is a proven critically important need.

I still don't believe Kate wants Jon to have more time with the kids even though she has commented that she wished he would get them more. She would lose the ability to hurt and control him more.

Yep, proud granny of 5! Resting up today,until I get there tomorrow.
In my Saskatchewan, if you want to get your dog groomed, one charges $45., the other charges $65, crazy for sure.I groom all 4 of our dogs myself, was training to do it at a business, when I had an accident which took 23 months to heal. I have all of the tools, but I just do my own dogs.I have a hard time believing that kate ever lets the dog in her house, there would be a lot of shedding going on, especially since she does not brush him often, or not at all.Before my accident, I ran my doggy daycare business here in my house, it was so much fun, hard work or not.kate does not have the ablity to love their dog, sure not like the display she put on over Koala bears in Australia. kate can't love animals,as she is so 'empty' inside-empty both in her heart, empty in her head.
800 eggs for 8 kids? What an idiot she is, setting her kids up to be just like her when they are adults. I hope that being with Jon will level them out. And remember what a good christian woman she was, speaking at churches, bible sticky notes in the house? Has she mentioned one word about what Easter means to her chrisitan teaching? No, no Jesus, but 800 eggs. What an awful twit she is. You would think that CJ nut might have said something about that to kate, since CJ says she herself is a christian woman, who quotes the bible when it suits her. CJ has the guts to run down the 'haters', but no guts at all to ask kate about a christian Easter. Figures.kate is such a loser, everything is ME, ME, ME. Such a big fake. I can never see her being a loving, hands on grandma! Unlike Jon, who always has been a great dad, and he will go on to be a great grandpa, too. Sorry for the rant.

But assuming his mom is living in his house, that might bode well in court to have a female support system for all the children.

It sounds odd because it's not true. If he were behind in child support his wages would be garnished as simple as that. Either the tweet was a plant to try to deflect from the real reason they are going to court (to get custody), or possibly maybe the insider misunderstood the docket or made an assumption the docket was about child support. Lord knows dockets have been misread or misunderstood before. Or, I don't recall how they enter a docket, but sometimes they are misleading. For instance if you see a trial on the docket, that in no way means that the case is going to trial. That could just be the date that a pre-approved settlement will be entered into the record. Who knows maybe the docket IS calling this hearing a chid support hearing, in part, because if custody changes to give Jon more he won't have to pay as much. Thus, child support would be addressed. All possibilities. But what's not a possibility is that Jon is in arrears--a garnishment would prevent that from ever happening.

I can't jump on the "Jon's such a nurturing parent" bandwagon. He left his children in Kate's care while he chased his twenties
-------------------
I think the reason people tend to favor Jon as a parent is because they are also remembering him as a parent BEFORE the divorce instead of just the father who left his children. Those kids always seemed to have a special bond with Jon that you never saw with Kate.

Also, you have so many people saying Jon left his kids. I know I am only guessing but it seemed like he didn't have a choice if the marriage was over. I'm sure he would have been more than happy to be the one to stay in the house and take care of the kids. Kate wasn't going to let that happen because he didn't want them filmed. She needed them with her 24/7 so they could be available anytime for filming.

Oh and the girls Jon dated....I guess his mistake was not calling them his "bodyguard".

Once a Viewer said...

Tamara: You are right that Jon did those things and let things happen when he was under Kate's thumb. Luckily he freed himself and I really believe ( and I'm no fan of Jon) that he will continue with his good basic parenting skills. He did all the physical care, and listened to the kids, seemed to enjoy their company on errands, respected their differences, and was more of a time-out dad than smack with the red spoon parent. He knows how to feed kids, tend to a sick child and knew more about them than Kate did ( couch interviews) But time will tell :/ JMO!

Purple Skies said...

UGH ~ Kate plans to overdo the Easter eggs, candy and TOYS for the kids. How incredibly spoiled and entitled these children will be as their mature. I knew Kate was dense, but she just keeps proving how clueless she really is as a parent. They overindulged those kids during filming to hype up the drama, but the show is over.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Tamara, no one said Jon is a perfect parent. The incidents you mention all happened years ago. What I do see from Jon is reflection and introspection. He becomes better as the years go by as he lives and learns. Parents are allowed to make mistakes as long as they learn from them and do better next time. This is what i see from Jon. Owning his mistakes, learning from them and making better choices next time. I don't think people are born perfect. but what needs to happen is people learn and grow. Digging your heals in and refusing to look at yourself and grow as you live and learn, which is exactly how Kate lives life, is not attractive or healthy.

KmartSmart said...

Twenty eggs is all that is needed for a kid during an egg hunt. Maybe not even that many. Ok, even being an overindulgent gluton, lets say 50 eggs per kid. Will 50 eggs even fit in a basket?

20x 8 = 160
50 x 8= 400

I do not believe for one second that she is doing 600-800 eggs. She's such a lying tool.

I bet there are NO EGGS and all she plans to do is scatter a few dollar items in the basement for them to find. Sure wish that Chris guy would give up his Easter and spy, and see if those kids have any kind of egg hunt. Too bad their mom can't get along with family so that they never get to do this stuff with their cousins.

Tamara said...

I never said he had to be perfect, that's impossible. I'm just pointing out that he was not always a GREAT dad. And as for the last 2 years, I'm reserving judgment. I want to see how he does for two years when he is not being literally forced off tv and out of the entertainment world.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Kmart that's why I think this was a plant. I cannot imagine an employee being stupid enough to look at a sealed celebrity file and blabbing about it knowing what they drill into us about confidentiality. I know it happens sometimes but I just doubt it.

Kate, or whoever made up the account to tweet her this, should have said I looked at the DOCKET and saw you have a court date. Because it's perfectly legit to look at the docket, anyone could. But to say they looked at the file sounds too suspicious.

And shouldn't Kate be up and arms about this? Oh my God how dare this person look at our private file and share the contents? She's so big on not trusting people, etc., where is her outrage? Wouldn't the first thing you tweet be WHO IS THIS AND WHO IS THEIR SUPERVISOR? Kate not being upset about this suggests to me she planted this. She is pretty amateur, isn't she?

As someone said, something STINKS in Denmark.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Oh another thing, in our court we have what we call the "super secret" files. Those are for celebrities, politicians, and any else who comes through family law court.

We are VERY careful with those files, they are stored separately, only a few people are allowed to see them, they are usually officially sealed. It would be VERY hard for any old employee to look at them.

I'm sure Jon and Kate's file is treated the same, it's a high profile case and courts and their employees respect that.

One time we had someone who worked in a politicians office come through and we cleared the courtroom and sealed the file. I didn't have the first clue who the guy was but just to have a vague connection to a known politician was enough to be VERY careful with his case.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Tamara, no he wasn't always a great dad and Jon would be the first to tell you that.

The fact that he recognizes his short comings though speaks volumes about him, and speaks volumes to his potential.

As they say in therapy before you can do anything else you need to have acceptance and ownership of your mistakes. He does.

I think she goes so overboard on holidays because she knows those are memorable, and she needs to cover her ass so when the kids get older they won't write Mommie Dearest books about her. "How dare you write how mean and abusive I am when I hid 800 Easter eggs for you and wrapped Christmas presents for 3 weeks for you!"

She is truly Joan Crawford reincarnated. OMG the similarities they have are frightening! They are like the same person.

Winsomeone said...

I would like to see Jon have more custody time, because I think the children should have a bit more Asian influence in their lives. They may only be one forth Asian, but they do all look quite Asian. It would also be nice if their Asian grandmother was able to spend more time with them, teaching them about their Korean heritage.

Once a Viewer said...

Winsomeone:

That's a good point- I never thought of that. I don't know what percent of students at their school are Asian, but yes, there is a lack of this influence with the present custody arrangements.also the Asian babysitter -who did the great hairstyles !- is gone...I guess they do see Jon's relatives now and then.

Another thing I hate about Kate's writing style, is her overuse of puns. A clever pun is witty and not run into the ground. Hers are juvenile, like her 'hoppy' faces and 'egg-stra' crap, and repeated to death. She thinks she is funny and laughs at her own jokes but she is really immature in yet another area. Noticed this yet again in that last tweet..

aggiemom09121416 said...

Kate's such a liar and one prone to exaggeration...600-800 eggs? hearty breakfasts? lines of people for her book signings?
When pics are shown (book signings and hearty breakfasts) they don't live up to her hype. Other times, she was too busy to take a pic.

Will either parent have to attend next week's legal meeting? Next week will be interesting.

Another thought...either the kids are taking a marathon nap, or the nanny is gone.

Logic seems to indicate when the nanny is there..each night, there is non-stop maniacal tweeting (should be non-stop homework, shower and kitchen duty). She isn't doing non-stop tweeting now (should have SOME free time, due to it being a school holiday), so logic seems to indicate she is alone with the kiddies.

Marie said...

I find it pretty sad these probably will grow up to be very entitled and not really understand how to treasure something that they have been given.

When I turned 16, I was given a rather expensive, elegant music box from a family member as a birthday gift. My parents certainly never indulged me with all this crap kids have and think they need today. I still treasure that single gift above any other gift that I've been given because it wasn't about the cost of the item of how many more I could get or if something better and bigger would be there next year as a gift. It was about the fact that this person went probably well out of their way to give me something that I still consider special and it's well taken care of.

Easter to Kate really must be all about trying to cram in that mini-Christmas theme between now and their birthday. I view it as sort of wasteful. Sure I'm from that gimme-me 90s generation but I wasn't raised that way. If you are given any gift in life and if it means something to you, cherish it, enjoy it.

I really do feel sad for Kate, holidays such as Easter aren't really meant as an excuse to give your kids more stuff. The more you overload them on stuff the more they're going to think they need and it just isn't true.

Sorry if this post might bother anyone.

I thought Kate promised those kids they would spend holidays and special days together. How great for them all if she owned HER mistakes, took responsibility, made an attempt to redeem herself, encourged Jon to come visit the kids IN their home while she busied herself at some volunteer project for a few hours, or if she invited Jon and his mother to come spend a 4th of July picnic with the entire family? Imagine the healing that family would experience.

Yep, imagine it. Have I mentioned where I live? Hut #2, Fantasy Island.

I have ALWAYS thought that that was a persona that she adopted because she got some benefit from it, not necessarily monetary, maybe just a fee ling of "I'm better than you." Plus, her father was/is a church deacon so she'd know "the lines."
She moved on to poverty stricken mother of 8, to "I'm so famous I need a body guard" (DON'T YOU KNOW WHO I AM?) To OMG I'm getting divorced (omitting that SHE filed) to poor single mom of 8 (NEVER a divorcee) and so on.
They are all PERSONAS that she adopts as needed. Some people have believed each iteration.

The real Kate is an soulless, bottomless pit who needs constant affirmation and to control those around her. Currently, that means her children, and to the extent possible, their father. The children are the reason that I care.

Speaking of children, congratulations PrairieMary!

Even if it is public information, I'm sure it would be a grounds for termination to discuss such matters with the general public. Highly unprofessional at the very least. I would think positions requiring the handling of court orders and records require the employees to maintain confidentiality. It's not something where you sit around the living room and tell your family about various, specific individual's private legal records and court orders.

We have NO IDEA what the deal was when they separated and divorced. They were still under contract with TLC, who rate as hellacious in my book. (TLC is a corporation, but ultimately it is people).
I do not recall that Jon or Kate ever directly commented about that period of time. Very few people KNOW how much access to his children Jon had. I am not defending his choices, I am just saying that we do not know what other factors were also in play.

anger issues kate said...

Congrats Prairiemary!

As for Jon going to court, there were rumors, over the last 2 months, one of Jon getting more custody of his sons, and the other on the twins & the cruise.
My theory on Jons, child support is this: Jon was reported as paying $24,000 a month to Kate child support, while still under contract to TLC. Kate & TLC legals, were very clever. The money Jon banked with Kate(from JK8) was divided in divorce, right? So Kate requested/demanded did a sob story and got the court to grant her $24,000 a month(she had it all calculated). The shut up/gag money/can't work in TV money that TLC paid Jon, went directly to Kate, plus probably most of his settlement from the divorce did. Jon got royally screwed by Kate and TLC. So when part of the TLC contract with Jon ended(JK8 contract) and K8 began), he went to court to get the child support reduced. This is why Kate was going to kinkos and making copies of receipts, papers as she called them. Jon got the court to get Kate to prove she still needs to be paid $24,000 a month CS. The court must have side with Jon on this one, cause right around that time Kate was saying Jon was behind in support, he was not paying CS, and the amount was enough for lunch. So Jon CS was reduced, probably down to a normal/living level. With contract totally ended now, with TLC, Jon wants it probably to be reduced even more and wants more custody, which means Kate will get less CS, cause Kate does not need the kids for filming any more. Which is why she had so much custody.

In Kate mind/her thinking: $24,000 a month was not enough, even though she was making $204,000(after 15% taken for kids) an episode.
So in her mind Jon, cause now court ordered Jon paying less, Kate thinks that Jon is behind in CS. Does not matter to her if court re-set the amount. Kate thinks, she is still entitled to that amount. That pays for her life style, even though it belongs to the kids. Kate had it all figured out.
I hope Jon does get more custody of all his kids and Kate gets less CS.

Ex Nurse said...

According to Jon's LinkedIn page:
http://www.linkedin.com/pub/jon-gosselin/38/676/516

Jon lists 2 separate jobs:

1) A sole proprietor who does Network and Desktop Support, and, 2) inside sales at Omega Systems--a privately held company with 11-20 employees

If Jon was late (I'm not saying that he is) in child support, the state can only garnish his wages from Omega Systems. A sole proprietor does't have to pay himself wages --they pay taxes on the profit (if any) on a personal return using a Schedule C.  Most likely, he runs the support business from his home, which will give deductions that will reduce his annual taxable income--which is used for calculation of child support.  Lots of people use this type of situation to shield themselves from  having to pay child support. Again, not saying that Jon is. Anyway, the state really can't garnish his income from the sole proprietorship business.

Just clearing this up because posters were assuming that  his wages could be garnished, therefore he couldn't be behind. Also, each state has a limit to how much child support can be deducted. In Washington state, no more than 50% of after-tax income can be deducted for child support. If it comes up short in a pay period, it is tacked onto back support, which will prolong the period of time for payment.

And the sheeple swooned and fawned and peed themselves over her 'inventing' this cliched and very well known expression? One sheeple asked if she could use it and Kate told her no, it was property of TLC (or something to that effect)

Well Beach Tammy needs to slap a bitch down and say "Oh no you woah-ownt be copying a damn thing from me!" But since she appears to be a sheeple I guess that won't be happening.. lol. Just like a 2 year old, what's Kate's is Kate's and whats anyone else's is Kate's.

You know back then with all the stories that came out about Jon, I truely believe that half were made up by Kate & TLC PR. For ratings. The way Kate has been over the last 3 years says a lot. I think Kate would not let Jon see his kids half the time, so it call out in the press by way of Kate & PR(TLC) that Jon runs around so much that, for months he was not paying CS or seeing his kids. Remember Kate has been very angery at Jon for screwing up her plans. Kate had her whole life planned out, she just did not figure on Jon wanting a normal life, not a life in front of the world. I do under stand where Jon saw the TV show: make some money, then go home. He was railroaded by Kate, to continue or be history. Kate is very vindictive.

Kate's just claiming blindsided for attention that's all that is.

She's raving about making Easter overly-special, why? Again for the pure sake of attention.

She's got no TV show, no career, no husband, no boyfriend, probably few friends, less help than she feels she deserves.

Kate hates when her fans ask her if whatever Jon is doing is true because one she either feels it isn't fair because it's not really about her or two, it makes her nervous.

If they do both end up going to court next week she's going to be all uptight about it same as always. I mean they've been divorced now for what, a couple years? It's time to bury that hatchet, put aside your childish differences and move on. Why people have to drag out divorce and custody and payment issues is beyond me. It just shows that's all you've got going to you I guess. Sad. If these two can't cooperate without putting their issues all over Twitter then they've got problems.

Shows a lack of maturity that these two parents can't has out whatever they think they need to in a more private setting doesn't matter if they are former reality stars you don't need to make a spectacle of it all over Twitter just makes you look really stupid.

Plans changed and we're not leaving until tomorrow, so I'm catching up on the posts.

First of all, congratulations prairiemary! May God bless you and your family always.

Not A Sheeple, I am so sorry for your family's loss. My prayers will be with you, your sister, and your BIL.

My opinion is Kate is not overcompensating, she is outright lying. I do not believe for a minute that she is really stuffing 600-800 eggs. She always tries to present herself as the "better than everyone else" mother, and tries to convince everyone of tat with her over the top stories (lies). Only her sheeple believe this crap.

I truly hope Jon is going to court to change the custody currently in place. I believe that would be best for the children.

Not a Sheeple: I am also sorry to hear about the loss in your family. There seems no way to explain why these things happen to the best people . So random and so sad.

I love how Kates lackies/sheeple set her up. Kate just slammed the whole Christian school community, in PA. Real smart there Kate. By saying: NO good christian schools in my area IMO. Kates sound more & more like "Mommie Dearest"

Prairiemary--Congratulations on your new grandsons!

@Kateplusmy8 Good that U value a spiritual education 4ur kids in addition 2secular education. Will have well rounded/respectful children!

@MiloandJack no good Christian schools in our area IMO so I do try to balance :)

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

WHAT?! There are no good Christian schools near Kate's home?

I find that hard to believe.

Not a Sheeple
I'm very sorry to read your story. I totally understand how you feel about teasing your sister. Please forgive yourself.
I also understand your anger. One of the things about kate's story that is hard to read is that she has been given so many blessings and seems so undeserving of them all. I think that's why so many are hoping to see karma take effect. It makes the world feel unbalanced to see good people suffer while the greedy seem to get more.

I really hope that your sister and BIL have their prayers answered soon. And I hope that you can find a way to forgive God and have faith that they will someday have a child.

"If glee happened" "I  worked w some glee kids"  -How, exactly, would glee "happen"? Where does she see a part for herself? Does she really see herself on the same footing as some of Glee's guest stars, such as  Academy Award winner Gwyneth Paltrow or Tony award recipients and Broadway stars Kristen Chenoweth and Idina Menzel?

When someone posted that Kate was stuffing 600-800 eggs, the word that came to mind is "vulgar".  She is just vulgar.

Moroccan chicken is made (my DH) and waiting for my extra set of hands (daughter-in-law) to help with the matzoh balls and gefilte fish. I am excited to try some of the variations on chicken soup and other recipes that people shared.

I thought she herself WENT to a good Christian school in that area ?????????

Wow. Just wow. Waiting for the lightening bolt.

What does Kate think she is religious spiritual perfect, she really is delusional? Or is Kate saying stuff, cause she is worried about next week court? Having a break down or too much box wine(whine).

Yet another delusional sheeple, this one just tweeted a picture of her "lake house" and made it known that she cruised last year as well:

XXXXXX
@miloandjack @kateplusmy8 I still want to go on cruise in August but since we are going to Alaska in July not sure finances can handle both

Kate Gosselin ‏ @Kateplusmy8 Close
@XXXXX @miloandjack please please sign up! Dying to meet you!We will all have so much fun! Can't wait!Will spend lotsa X w my friends! :)

YES, indeed, Kreider will spend "lotsa X" with her friends. Trouble is, NO ONE cruising in her group will really be a "friend," isn't that right, Katie? Just Steve, as usual.

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

That's right. To hell with paying bills, go on Kate's overpriced cruise.

Kate doesn't care that person already spent alot of money to go on an Alaskan cruise in July. All Kate cares about is HER cruise, and the money she will be raking in when it's all said and done.

Kate doesn't give a sh*t about her fans, or anyone other than herself. Alright, maybe she cares alittle bit about her kids- but her fans,
nope, uh-uh.

Fools. Kate's using each and every one of them.

EM said...

How long would it take to hide 800 eggs, collect 800 eggs, and open 800 eggs. The excess is TOO over the top. I need pics to believe it. If by some chance it is true then it seems kate is trying to outdo Jon. She also guaranteeing the kids will become bored with Easter after the 1st 30 eggs.
Surely a dozen eggs would suffice..20 max.

Kate is a twit said...

Maybe Kate is replaying last year's Easter episode in her head. Didn't she say on that episode that she hid 700 eggs?

Or maybe she wants the kids to be occupied while she whipping up her amazingly awesome Easter dinner.

Pink-Milo has come up with the perfect solution for those that can't make Kate's cruise this year.

miloandjack
@Mydmaxx @kateplusmy8 That would be tough...back 2back! Maybe Kate will do annual cruises? That way she could rotate takin her kids! :)

Delusion seems to be rampant in GosselinLand.

What's Next? said...

Note to all Christian schools in Kate's area - You are not good enough in her opinion.

Admin, regarding the child support story - can Jon sue for libel if the source can be identified? He is being labeled a deadbeat Dad which could affect his future employment.

anger issues kate said...

I really feel sorry for her kids. What stupid thing to slam the Christian school community. Kate you a-hole, your kids go to a Christian Day school, her kids are gonna be teased about this. And don't think the school staff does not read about all stuff Kate does or says, they do. They have to, cause they are the ones doing damage control for the kids. What ever mom does, says goes right to the kids. I don't care how much protection and prevention, stopping bullyin etc, it all manages to get back to the kids. Kate you don't think !

Puddymoors said...

I can't believe all the fuss being made about Easter toys and candy. I thought Kate was a Christian ... reading her tweets shows she has no understanding of the holidays. For me Easter is completely meaningless without Good Friday. As an Anglican, I go to church 4 times on the Easter weekend (Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Saturday and Easter Morning). Each service has it's own special part of the Easter Story.

I do not believe 800 eggs ... what a waste of time. We used to play a game with the Cub Scouts where we'd hide 5 or 6 packs of eggs (about 60 eggs total) for 20 kids. (Eggs were just rapped in foil) The kids would go out and find them, but could only pick up one at a time, and they all had to be brought in and put in the Easter basked (so they could be divided up equally later). One leader was always designated 'redistributor' and would sneak the eggs out of the basket and go and re-hide them. The game could go on for an hour, and the kids had so much fun!!

Border Collie said...

Even I, a border collie, and my brother the aussie, would get tired gathering up 600-800 eggs. Good god, vulgar is the right word for this behavior. We herding dogs are known for gathering up stock all day long, and I guarantee even dogs would give it up with that many eggs. BORING. I'd have learned to hate Easter and whatever other holidays my mother chose to overdo in this way. This mother of course ignores some holidays, and takes back half the Christmas stuff to be distributed later. What a clusterf---k.

Border Collie said...

I heard today of 2 guys who went out to get Easter cards. One asked the clerk if they had a religious section of cards, and clerk said no, and what would religion have to do with Easter anyway.
Guys were stunned.

Gift of grab said...

Well, the churches affiliated with those schools were certainly good enough when you showed up to grift some cash from the faithful, Katie. Weren't they?

You are one sorry piece of crap, Kreider. You are doing yourself no favors with your current campaign of saccharine overkill, sweetie-pie. Shutting your mouth posthaste is your wisest option, but you just can't do that, can you? Always have to have the last word, the last "spin." You're so obvious. And you're so DONE.

@xxxxxx no. But Easter Sunday, yes, as usual.... Every Sunday kids and I home, we go... :)

Well, I don't know why she bothers going because she obviously learns nothing at church. She is one of the most un-Christ like people I've ever seen.

Joyce Meyer always says, going to church every Sunday doesn't make you a Christian any more then sitting in the garage makes you a car.

Schnickelfritz said...

I really feel sorry for her kids. What stupid thing to slam the Christian school community. Kate you a-hole, your kids go to a Christian Day school,

++++++++

The kids school is not affiliated with any religion. It is not a Christian Day School. It is a private school that happens to have "DAY" as part of the title, but it is not a Christian school.

Kate is a graduate of a Christian school - MCCS in Elizabethtown, which is not in her area. She is in Berks County, and MCCS is in Lancaster County. I'm not familiar with private Christian schools in Berks county. Perhaps someone there could answer about the Christian schools there.

Border collie: funny! lololol But you know your somewhat right: Easter like Xmas has become so commercialized, that what you posted is not too far fetched. So much truth in that!

prairiemary said...

So sorry, Not a Sheeple, I feel bad that I am bragging about my grandsons born this morning. Prayers to your sister, bil, and to you. Before her twins, my daughter also miscarried, as did I many years ago. Please have faith that it will happen for your sister, and try not to be mad at God because of this sadness. I know exactly how you feel about that witch(sorry for calling her a name) having 8 very healthy children, and she takes every minute of every day with them forgranted. I lost my child to cancer, was there with her when she took her final breath. I don't wish ill on kate or her kids, I just wish she would grow up, appreciate what she has, and raise the kids to be good people, instead of showering them with more 'things'. Things do not bring happiness,they don't make us better people. I do agree that kate has no soul. If she did, she would not act the way she does. Part of me(okay, a LARGE part of me), can't wait until the 8 begin rebelling against her, and all that she stands for.There will come a day that she will be very sorry for the way she lived her life, and the way she treated her children. But for me, I know that one day, kate will be judged for all she did with her life, and it won't be by those who detest her,it will be by her Maker.There is a place in the bible, where we are told what will happen to those of us who harm little children. And it won't be very pretty. Sorry to those who don't have the same faith as me.I do not say this to run anyone down,so please don't anyone take it that way.

anger issues kate said...

Ok, I stand corrected. I went to their web-site. But Kate still slammed the Christian community. She told them, that their schools are no Good, and you know what Kate is right! They are no-good: LOOK HOW KATE TURNED OUT! Kate is a BAD EGG! Nothing wrong with the Christian schools, it's Kate. And Kate is doing a lecture at one of them soon. What makes her think she is a perfect christian. All, I've heard and seen so far with Kate is very UN-CHRISTIAN things she has done. Bashing Jon, treating own kids like slaves, treating service people rudely and like servants, lying, grifting, etc. That's being a Christian?

Gosselin8ComeFirst said...

Kate twitter @jenniegbrown oh darn! I need size 6,7,8 boys clothes only.. And actually with what I bought yest at consignment, I think I'm ok.. Thx tho! 54 minutes ago
-----------------------


Really, Kate grifting again. Why would anyone need to know the boy's sizes. She just can't stop can grifting, can she? If she could, why would she list the boys' sizes. So transparent. Nothing has changed.

And how about if Kate starts trading her old clothes in at the consignment shop for new consignment clothes. Why is SHE exempt from this money saving practice?

What a liar, pants on fire. She can't keep her stories straight. The one time she did go to church, she photographed it. Disgraceful.

Other than that, she tried to pretend they were watching church services from home. She even lies about attending or viewing church services. Say nothing, rather than lie about it. We all know how lazy she is, and the only time she took the kids to church, she photographed them. What a hypocrite. And liar.

Mandy said...

Hey Kate, here is a partial list of schools that you just dissed.

http://www.schoolfinder.us/?r=private&s=PA&county=BERKS

I looked at a couple of websites. They look like fine schools to me.

Gosselin8ComeFirst said...

I am starting to think Krap is on a self-destruct mode. She can't keep her mouth (twitter) shut and has been digging holes left and right without TLC. Lashing out left and right. This is one angry person, who is on self-destruct mode, although the grifting and lies continue. Not hard to spot with her history.

So predictable.

Palm Springs said...

Kate's playing with fire regarding her diss at her community's Christian schools AND her commenting on upcoming court dates.

Be patient, I'm more than sure her judgement day is coming. And I'm not even of the religious sort. Maybe I should say her karma will come back to her sooner than she or we think.

It has to, right?!
