Kate's cruise cancelled

Full refunds are being offered.

According to a cruise-goer, the numbers Kate expected did not meet her expectations and Kate will reach out to all that booked.

This ship has sunk.

How did you find out about the refunds?

Also, I suspected it would be canceled from lack of interest, but I'm surprised it was announced so soon.

Kat said...

Im loving it......Does it get any better than this????

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

The person who spilled the beans to me told me she was promised a full refund.

Tucker's Mom said...

Full refund as in the whole enchilada? The whole cruise price not just the Kate part? I would really hope so, because I'm betting most people who signed up would not have if not for the Kate events.

ElisabethK said...

If they are giving FULL refunds, that is not according to the refund policy as I understood it. Full payment was to be due May 15 - less than a week away. I bet Kreider backed out or there was some real ugliness that came out. Yes, "the contract honorer!" Haha.

Kat said...

Is kate gonna fess up?? This should be interesting...

Koopdedoo said...

I do hope the sheeple can truly get their money back if they do not wish to cruise without their queen.

librarylady said...

I wonder if she'll try to say that an important (better?) "work offer" came along. If I was one of those cruisers who already cancelled other plans (I think someone had a Disney cruise already?), I'd be REALLY mad. They should've known better, though.

Can't wait to see the spin...

ElisabethK said...

Do you think, Admin, that they will really give her the full refund, or is this just a hollow promise from an unprofessional and unscrupulous company?

cathy518 said...

Ding dong,the witch is dead, the wicked witch, the mean old witch!
What a crapfest that cruise became.I can't imagine anyone in their right mind would ever want to join Kate in a venture again. I only hope Jon stepped in and put an end to it for the twins safety and that is the reason for the cancellation.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I guarantee the spin will be that the "haters" somehow caused fans to be in fear to take part and that's why no one wanted to go. It will be our fault somehow.

Or Jon's. Jon stopped it because how dare he not want his little children around crazy fans.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Auntie Ann was it you running the pool? Who got closest to the date of cancellation? I hope I won, I need gas money!

librarylady said...

I think they can probably blame CJ, lol...

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Full refund is what my source says.

They don't have to honor their policy they can go above and beyond. I think it's nice of them to do that. It's not the fans' fault Kate isn't a contract honorer.

Good Lord has anyone got CJ sedated yet? She'll be in a million pieces. Bwhahahahahahahaha

Gift I went through Cindy's page and it still doesn't work for me. I think your computer really must be running off what's left of the cache. Try a different browser or your phone browser if you have one. It went poof.

Gift of grab said...

This has CJ written ALL OVER IT. I wouldn't be surprised if the cruise line itself got involved in reviewing Cindy's (ahem) vetting practices for this junket and told her just how unacceptable it was. Enough people out there said they planned to contact Royal Caribbean, so I wonder if that's what this is about.

OTOH, if KATE has had to cancel for some "work"-related reason, she would have to get on Twitter and apologize, wouldn't she? Would she really NOT do that?

Storm said...

you know your a loser when you Z list cruise gets cancelled. I mean seriously. who in their right mind would spend all that money to be on a boat with her. Bon Jovi or some other eye candy maybe. But an orange snuffaluffagus? I think not.

anger issues kate said...

I just went to the web-site, it said could not find. I bet, Jon, dragged Kate into court, about the twins, or Kate got a letter from the court. That's why Kate has been quiet lately.

Cruisin Just As Fast As She Can Now said...

Anyone who puts money on anything associated with Kate isn't playing with a full deck (pun intended).

Looks like Kate needs to start reserving that vacation house on BHI before everything is booked!

So much for the 200+ passengers they were expecting.

Gift of grab said...

"Orange snuffaluffagus"??? LMAO!

Westcoaster said...

Karmageddon.

Kate will say nothing, will block anyone who asks and lalalalalalalala in her head.

Tonight she's twatting Bindi Irwin - just how old is she again?

So what do you all think is on the birthday breakfast menu?

Kat said...

What will this do to kates ego? Shes under the impression that shes a big stah.....oh the humanity...

Oh my God.

This whole thing smelled rancid from day one.

Kreider curse strikes again.

Wow! I can't wait to see how Kate spins this. Who spilled the beans about it being cancelled?

bearswife said...

Storm, count me in on that Bon Jovi cruise! haha I saw them last year and OMG! Just thinking about that concert makes me all dreamy...

I do hope that the "fans" get all their money back. they shouldn't be punished for KK's sins.

Kate's going to remember THIS birthday, lol....no cruise for you!
hahahhahahahhaahhahahahhahahahahahhahahahahahhaha


I bet Kate is some kinda pissed...it was the haters, ya know...
:)
hahahhahahahhahahhahahhahahahahha

Good sleuthing, Admin!!

LoveMyGrandsons said...

I've never been on a cruise so I don't know how it works. However, what comes to my mind is that maybe the travel agent (Cindy?) had to guarantee a certain number of reservations. When that didn't happen, they had to cancel because they couldn't meet the requirements.

Either that or if there a certain number of bookings, Kate has to pay out of her own pocket for her and her entourage and she didn't want to do that.

No matter, it shows Kate that she is not as relevant and popular as she thinks she is. It will be interesting to see how she addresses this.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Don't thank me thank my source, I gave them a hard time about this worried it was a sheeple pulling our legs.

I doubt it was Jon though. He could stop the twins but not Kate. My source who knows about Jon did say awhile back, and I posted it here, that Jon was not worried about the cruise because he doubted it would happen. I bet he and everyone close to it was aware that the numbers were so low that it was highly doubtful they would hit their mark in time for May. Remember how desperate they got in April as the deadline got closer? Jon was right not to make a big deal out of something that was not going to be anyway.

SG said...

Canceled? ROFL!

Pam said...

Let's just hope it wasn't canceled because she was selected to be on DWTS All Stars this fall.

PJ's momma said...

I hope they do offer full refunds. It's the right thing to do. Why should they be stuck on a ship that has had so many problems, when they could spend their money another way (despite what the small print said)? Maybe those who cancelled their Disney cruise for their family could re-book it.

Gift of grab said...

You know, Kate might like to blame the "haters," but it was lunacy for Cindy to rely on CJ to vet prospective cruisers. And based on Cindy's OWN e-mails to people, it was all too clear that was EXACTLY what she was doing. Kate has only herself to blame for allowing this to happen, she surely was aware of it, it was talked about everywhere.

CJ and milo seem to have shut up for the night.

ElisabethK said...

May 9, 2012 6:39 PM

Gift, I think she will say absolutely NOTHING about it. She will delete it from her memory trace and talk about the tups birthday. She will not apologize, let alone even mention it.
A sociopath has the ability to manipulate not only people, but their own reality in their heads.

Amy2 said...

The timing of the cancellation is interesting. True to form whenever there is bad news (for Kate) she will go on and on about something else. In this case tomorrow is the tups 8th birthday. She'll never say a word about the cruise cancellation only what a wonderful mother she is putting on a birthday for her kids. Awww.

Kat said...

She looks like a complete ass.....what a loser.....i hope shes got some money packed away because shes all but through...

PJ's momma said...

I agree with LoveMyGrandsons - as always. There were probably simply not enough bookings to justify paying Kate to be there or whatever. It was probably not Jon, it wasn't the haters, it's just a business decision.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Oh by the way out of curiosity, where are my grammar police? Is it cancelled or canceled? I've seen it both ways.

Jane said...

Look for frantic, over the top tweets from Kate and her new BFF for the next few days as they try and cover up the cruse fiasco. Now we know why Deanna appeared.

Border Collie said...

This is what happens when you make your initial cruise offering days longer and hundreds of dollars more expensive, in hot weather to some bum locations, and then throw in a crazy "vetter" not hired nor insured by anybody to delve into your personal history. I looked at many other sponsored cruises and they were 3-4 days, way cheaper. But no, the one with no experience and no talent goes for the whole enchilada. Donny and Marie, other music groups, chefs, nobody else does this. They make their cruises afforable and fun. And they actually get to go someplace. Whoyah

librarylady said...

Admin, either spelling is technically considered correct. :)

Kat said...

Jon even knows shes over....maybe some one should let her in on it....or are we gonna hear that determined and positve bullshit again....

LoveMyGrandsons said...

OT, but I need to clarify my post on the previous thread. I didn't mean "11 months and 351 days old", I meant 11 months and 29 days old (or 7 years and 351 days old). Anyway, sorry.

aggiemom09121416 said...

I hope Kate DOES have millions in the bank...cuz her days of making money are OVER.
another one bites the dust...

I am sorry this news came to light the day before the kid's birthday. I hope they have a great birthday tomorrow. They deserve it.

So much has been said about Jon's supposed book. It's not going to have any dirt in it, so what kind of book from Jon would be marketable? I think it's supposed to be about general parenting, blah blah,...who would want to read that?
I hardly think millions would run out and buy it. Same for whatever Kate sealed with a kiss and dropped in the mail.
If anything, people might NOT buy a book by Jon just because he WAS married to that horrible shrew.
I wouldn't buy it.

Wonder if Kate is into the box o'wine tonight!

She is going to be in one pissed off mood. She has ALL SUMMER-LONG IN THE HOUSE WITH THE KIDS.
She is going to lose her mind.lol

Cruisin Just As Fast As She Can Now said...

I'm surprised there was no contest to stir up interest, such as sheeple running around outside waving posters in a parking lot. Wait. Last time that happened, the show was cancelled, so maybe that wouldn't have been such a good idea.

I agree. Kate will not bring it up or apologize about the cruise being cancelled. And she will BLOCK - "You're gone!" anyone who questions her about it on Twitter.

Like ElizabethK said, Kate will create her own reality about what happened with the cruise. The same way she created the Lie - I mean "reality" - that her huge increase in her bust size was the result of a "good bra".

Wow Kate - you just keep adding and adding to my list of why you are so PATHETIC!

I will now add #178 to my list: FAILED at Celebrity Cruise because Kate is NOT a Celebrity!

How soon til Radar Online has the story? :)

SeeSaw said...

I'm feeling sorry for the twins. Tomorrow they're going to have to participate in the greatest holiday of them all -- their siblings' birthday -- and hear that they're not going on a cruise. Bet they were looking forward to it as I'm sure Kate has been promoting it to them as a GR8 time.

Kat said...

She wont be home with her kids this summer....she will create situations where she will have to travel...you know ...for bussiness. I have faith in her...

I guess those in the admin's Hitler video may have been right about that s**t not happening!

anger issues kate said...

Amy2: that is exactly what Kate will do. Kate did the same thing when K8 was canceled, and people were asking, and she said: she had nothing official. And we all knew 3-4 days before she did. Or did she already know, just like now.
I wonder how long before she mentions it, or will she go silent again. I wonder what excuse she will give?

Read this over at the other blog a while ago: 200 reserved cabins for her cruise, only 30 sold. Something aboue: that they needed 1/2 or a quarter for the cruise to be a go.
Also, apparently, Kates house has been assessed value: $469,000.

I also think Kate excuse will be the stalker thing, and blah, blah blah about the kids safety. More like the twin cruiseing with mom was denied in court.

Gift of grab said...

Well, gypsi's not convinced yet. But then she plans to go with or without Kate.

gypsi001
@XXXXX i tried to get on the website earlier this week and it wasnt working but i was told it was in "code blue" meaning few rms left..

In the other sites I looked at from Cindy's outfit, when rooms were "selling out," they printed "sold out" right on the chart where they laid out room types/fees. So this doesn't seem believable.

And Cindy's other RC cruise, in September (jerseyshorecruise, aka deenaspartycruise), is still posted and seems to be live.

How could Kate NOT confirm a cancellation with the fans who signed up? Maybe she won't do it publicly on Twitter, but don't you think she would at least send an e-mail to everyone? Well, except maybe for CJ? Could she really be that crass?

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I'm hoping the twins were never told they were going in the first place.

I forgot about the secretary in the Hitler video predicting the cruise won't happen! HA! Go Hitler's secretary!

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

By the way a huge clue the web site was physically "taken down" and not just working is that it says some nonsense like Index of /

The web site itself is UP it's just the content was all removed.

If the web site weren't working because of a fluke you are more likely to get a 404 error.

SG said...

Admin,

Canceled is the proper way. I just checked online to see why and apparently it can be spelled both ways but one L is the American version and two Ls is the British version.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

They are using a lot of rooms and resources like supplies for the crafts, extra staff on duty to help run the "charity" dinner, etc.

I bet they have to hit a certain number of marks for it to be worth it to RC to allow them to make use of the facilities like that. When they weren't even close it was done.

SeeSaw said...

Admin - I hope you're right about the twins not knowing

SG said...

Kate claimed the twins had no idea about the cruise. She planned to surprise them. Surprise them with an obligation to play with strangers I suppose.

PatK said...

I'm reserving commenting on this until the official reason for cancellation is given.

But I will say this much: Bwahahaha!

Kate is always sad on birthdays. Eight is a WONDERFUL age and I hope she enjoys every minute of it instead of longing for seven.

anger issues kate said...

Hey, maybe this stalker stuff has gotten to Kate. Putting security cameras up, out of the blue, when you are a has-been TV personality, I can see years ago, at the height of popularity, but not now. Unless, Kate is paranoid, or has a real nut job stalking her. Maybe that is why the cruise is canceled or it was canceled because of poor turn out. Or maybe Alice cruise is being investigated, for fraud? Misconduct?

improbable dream said...

Hmmm, maybe this helps explain @deannatweeting's feverish tweets...putting lipstick on a pig, as it were.

Kate's Going Down said...

Yep, I bet it was just as I predicted: they had to book a minimum number of cabins and weren't able to. Because:

1. It was too expensive
2. Bad time of year for cruising
3. Hot, bad locations
4. Very few people would actually pay to be around Kate Gosselin.

And now we're seeing #4 is a fact. I never doubted it. She's only a legend in her own mind.

But watch--IF she even addresses it, she'll make up some absolutely ridiculous bullshit excuse.

And canceled can be spelled either way. Or it can be spelled K-A-T-E.

Amy2 said...

As for the twins not being told about the cruise by Kate, I can believe that. BUT they probably told by their friends at school who go on the internet.

Meagler said...

Doesn't any one wonder if the gosselinbook.com countdown has anything to do with this... Kate has not responded in anyway to this, whereas anyone else she blocks...

Meagler said...

I just checked out gosselinbook.com website, and there is a song playing there again tonight... " Because of you"...by Kelly Clarkson. If you are not familiar with the son, go listen to it...someone is saying Because of kate, they have a lot of emotional scarring...

Cruisin Just As Fast As She Can Now said...

"Or maybe Alice cruise is being investigated, for fraud? Misconduct?"

*****

If that were the case, then I would think that all of the personality cruises would be in jeopardy. They are still listed on their website, only Kate's is missing and Paula's is on the top of the right side.

Jumping In said...

My guess is one of two things happened. ONE, she has been offered something more appealing, perhaps a job, but it would have to be an offer giving her much more exposure than the cruise. Or, TWO, she became a demanding diva and Alice Travel saw more trouble coming once the cruise commenced, and pulled the plug to be rid of her.

Her followers would have gone even if Jon managed to block Kate from taking Mady and Cara on the cruise. They still would have been with their beloved Kate, and trash Jon for his meanness together, so that would have been a win/win for all.

I don't even believe the small numbers booked have anything to do with the cruise being cancelled. It's not as if RC gave them a group discount, it was priced higher than their brochure rates. Therefore, RC would not have demanded a minimum number of cabins to be sold because of better pricing from them.

Therefore, I'm going with diva behavior, that, or she's managed to bag a job back in front of a camera.

Gift of grab said...

I wonder whether Kate will ever tweet with CJ again.

An assessed value is the value determined for taxation. It is not the market value, or what one could expect the house to sell for if it were listed for sale.

Ingrid said...

If cancelled due to lack of interest--Kate must have filled Alice travel's head with a big story about how since she has thousands of twit followers she knows she will attract tons of reservations. We know how much she lies and how she thinks she is just the greatest celeb ever.

Just think, no cruise, no meet/greet in MO (even though she was there and could have arranged to meet a few at a stinking McD's or a park or SOMETHING. Yet the sheeple still wallow in their adoration for her.

Once again, oh so predictable. Something comes up that is negative about Kate and lo and behold, here's a firestorm about something completely unrelated (Deanna this time) to divert people from asking questions about the Kate issuse.

Should have known when the Deanna firestorm hit that there was going to be something negative about Kate in the news shortly. She must think we're pretty stupid.

Ingrid said...

IF the cruise was cancelled because Kate got a new job she couldn't refuse, wouldn't she be liable for it? Would she have had to sign a contract with AT for this and cancelling would be breaking the contract? (unless she had a clause in it covering this situation I suppose?)

Ah darn I was hoping to win a lottery so I could go with a hidden camera so PB wouldn't know and make me delete photos. LOL LOL

Cruisin Just As Fast As She Can Now said...

I don't even believe the small numbers booked have anything to do with the cruise being cancelled

**********

If you are expecting 200 plus cruisers, and only 30 book, then this is a huge factor in deciding whether or not to see it through. The profitability wouldn't be there. You have to figure all the planning, the events staff, rooms set aside, etc. that would be needed for a cruise such as this. To go through all of that for 30 people wouldn't make any sense at all. It would be an embarrassment, both to Kate and the agency.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I'm virtually certain that RC requires X amount of people to book in order to give them all the extra private rooms and extra staff on duty.

It makes no sense for RC to give up a room for say, five fans or even 10 or 30. When they could use that room for another bigger group or activity.

Part of their contract with Alice Travel probably says AT agrees to supply them with X amount of confirmed cruisers (say maybe 50 for an event like this) or RC reserves the right to cancel.

If they did it any other way they would be doing celebrity cruises for people with three fans and that isn't worth it and even makes RC look stupid since a lot of average people just assume it's through RC not a contracted agency.

Everyone who is surprised by the cancellation, stand on your head.

And I also agree with everyone who says she won't mention the cruise again. The most she'll do is twat a sad face on twitter and that will be it. No apologies, nothing.

Mel said...

Or something's going to come out that will preclude her being available for the cruise....like she and Steve have been married for two years and she's now pregnant.

I can't quite picture what the problem is, but I think it's something completely unexpected and out of the blue for us. Something we'd have no reason to suspect.

Something that Kate already knows about and is afraid of it being made public, but knows there's no way to avoid it being made public, like a pregnancy.

Or a jail term for something.

Realistically, I suppose we will never get a full and truthful account about why this "event" was cancelled. "Truthful" just isn't a part of Kate's world. In terms of how the news was given to your contact, Admin, I confess I'm curious as to who approached whom and what was actually said as to why it wouldn't be happening. I hope you will be able to fill in the blanks.

Marie said...

Strange. Back in 2004 when these kids were born the parents were just thankful their kids were alive, thankful from the support of their church and just simply thankful that they had their immediate material things met.

Fast forward 8 years later and after the circus of a reality show because, hey, it pays better and we can get more material things we didn't even known we needed. Who were they thankful tot hen? TLC who footed the bill. Never themselves for sitting down at the end of the day knowing that their own paycheck managed to meet their needs.

Those babies at the time all they needed was stability and good care, 8 years later Kate claims her kids need (must have, whatever) sand sun, foreign life experience, matching this and that, her kids need their normal of having cameras in their faces. That's not normal!

What would be normal is for Kate to get off her soap box about her preemie babies and how exhausted she is taking care of her kids who are no longer considered preemies they are thriving, healthy kids pure and simple. I image most mother's in labor are all exhausted but I think that exhaustion, if not always, is replaced by a feeling of happiness and satisfaction that they brought their child into he world and nothing else should matter about how they feel other than being happy. Suck it Kate.

Happy Mother's Day to those here who are mother's who actually have put their children first and don't claim exhaustion every 5 seconds. There will always be a mother who has to face more for her child than Kate probably ever will and those things that go unsaid will in the long run be more appreciated than if you didn't take your kid to the beach every summer.

Wonder what she has planned? A birthday party doesn't and should not have to be extravagant to show you care and are happy your kid is a whole year older. Some kids would probably be happy with the fact that you at least remember or care enough to reflect back on that day because you want to not because they expect cakes and gifts. Life is the ultimate gift, and that's not something that you can ever have wrapped no matter how hard you try.

I am personally not surprised to hear that the cruse was canceled. I wonder if the big bosses at Alice Travel finally stepped and saw how out of control the whole thing was.

c-section after laboring is exhausting.C-section, planned but complications during such as removing massive amounts of adhesions from previous c-section is exhausting. Kate's exhaustion after the c-section to deliver the tups probably party due to fear/worry.

And you KNOW I absolutely HATE to lean in Kate's favor for anything, but gotta give her a bit of leeway on the tups arrival in 2004.

Cruisin.....82

I think Alice Travel built those additional expenses in to their overpriced cruise. Perhaps they knew they had a loser and cancelled rather than be embarrassed
by the lack of numbers. I'm quite sure their phones stopped ringing many weeks ago. Hard to say what has really happened here.

The spin will be interesting, the truth more of a challenge.

I think it was cancelled due to low numbers.
Let's say 30 people booked. Some of those share a room. So we have maybe 17-20 rooms blocked off. The fans paid for the kate experience so normal RC's wouldn't be allowed access to that. This means that additional cabins would need blocked off to quarantine kate's little party. Plus they would need to block off the jogging path on RUN WITH KATE time..block off space for high tea, block off space for the dinners and craft time. With only 30 people paying its not worth it. Also, I think the reason Alice was saying rooms were soldout is because RC was slowly taking back space..Trying to politely hold out as long as possible before shitcanning this goose egg.

Andrea said...

I wonder if she will use the excuse of the cruse industry being slow this year. Cruse prices have plummeted since the costa concorda crash. There were a few other instances including a fire that set a ship adrift without power for days. Its a good year to take a cruse because prices are low. If she was smart, then she would spin the story this way.

But, I bet she will say something about haters. In reality, I think that many of her fans are haters too. Their hate for Jon rivals that of the so called haters. He has not been in the spotlight for a number of years. He has been taking care of his children and providing them a stable home. They refuse to see this. They still call him a dead beat dad even though he pays child support and probably some or all of their health insurance premiums.

Yes, he had a time where his judgement was not the best. I understand where he is coming from. My mother was abusive. My dad finally divorced her after I turned 17. I was still in high school. I stayed home for a month to process the trauma that I had been through. Things had been so bad by that point that I need to tune out for a while. I read, went to counseling, did homework and watched tv. The emotional strain was so great that I could not deal with the added stress of school. I had a great support system. I was able to come out the other side of the tunnel. So, I do think that I can understand what he was going through.

I read somewhere the cruise industry is experiencing something like a 50% slump this year--unprecedented.

Cruise accidents didn't help as well as fires and storms and norovirus outbreaks. The economy is terrible and even when you offer cruising for rock bottom prices you can't change the fact that flights are as expensive as ever. People are staying home. People are over cruising. It was trendy the last few decades or so, now most people, with the except of the dwindling group of people who are serial cruises and really into it, have a "been there done that" attitude. They overbuilt for demand, building megaships expecting the cruise craze to continue. It didn't.

I except Royal Caribbean can't afford to even have one or two rooms empty for a celebrity cruise that can't fill the spots. THey have to get out while they can and fill the rooms themselves.

I think we're going to see several big cruise companies go bankrupt in the next several years or so unless they do something to revitalize it.

Don't forget that ever-elusive shore excursion - the whereabouts and cost that never was revealed, other than that cruisers could watch Kate play on the beach with her kids. They'd have to rope off that area, set out chairs, have a staff to serve the Rum Runners, and have security out there to keep those away who didn't pay the extra $800 to witness the circus act.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I could show the sheeple a deadbeat dad.

A deadbeat dad disappears when you are pregnant, doesn't send one dime to the kid, doesn't call or write, is in and out of prison, then arrives at the courthouse when the kid is 16 and out of control and has a romantic view of how much better things would be if the judge just let her stay with dad, and Dad manages to get custody because he doesn't have any history of abuse and mom is SOL even though she's been busting her butt to raise this kid as a REAL single parent for 16 years plus 9 months.

Try that on for size, Kate. Happens every day.

Andrea said...

One or two rooms empty plus the rooms that would have to be reserved for Kate and her entourage. If she went she would have needed to take Steve, a makeup/ hair person, nanny for the twins exc. Her contract probably said something about free first class passage for her and her entourage.

EM said...

Ha Admin..you wrote my story. Except DAD didnt pop back up until the kids were safely old enough in his mind not to need support. I have never received any child support - wait - I got $50 ONCE and he promptly quit his job when he realized he was getting support taken out. No job lead to crime..crime lead to jail. I my kids never had a dad to go see on weekends, were never bought a birthday gift or even sent a card. hell not even a call. It;s like he forgot they existed. He popped up a year ago (maybe 2, cant remember..fresh from prison wanting to say hi to his kids. Once refused. The other got sucked into thinking his dad finally cared. After 2 calls dad lost interst.

Im not saying this to be a sob story. Just want it out there as a comparison of what kate has and shit's all over. I cant imagine what it would be like having 2 weekends to myself yet knowing the kidswere happy and with another loving parent who has proven his commitment to the kids..I cant imagine what it would be like to get a check to help pay for their care. I cant imagine what it wouldfeel like to be able to call someone and say "wow, look what we created 8 years ago." Kate's a fool. Even though the marriage failed there is no reason the divorce had to be nasty. Jon does not appear to be a cruel man and it seems he would love to have a "successful"divorce. Unfortunately..the kate fans need an enemy so kate will never budge for fear of losing her latest brand of "woman scorned:

When Kate acts especially happy it's usually because she is overcompensating for some horrible news. Her manic tweets about the birthday reflect that. Everything's fine here folks nothing to see here just having a FANTASTIC FABULOUS-O BDAY PARTY IN THE ARTIC IT'LL BE FUN, FUN, FUN. Lunatic. She did the same thing when custody changed.

Andrea said...

The next season of Dance Moms looks scary. Lifetime posted a preview for the upcoming season in June. I would think that the moms could get out of their contract because of Abbys behavior. She seems to be out of control. Her emotional and verbal abusive needs to be addressed. Perhaps its time for the moms to get an attorney who is willing to fight for the kids. They deserve to be in a safe neutering environment. Their technique and art would still thrive.

Dance Moms will always be part of the competitive dance world. A show that glorifies an abusive teach should not be part of that world.

I read here often, but have never posted. I just looked at the Allure of the Seas August schedule. There are only 2 cruises listed. One for Aug 12-26 and one for Aug 5-19. Perhaps RC cancelled the entire cruise, not just the Kate Gosselin portion

Looks like all her twat buddies are ignoring the fact that the trip has been cancelled. Thats a shocker....if its good enough for Kate to ignore, then it's good enough for them. She will never admit there was not enough people. It's not in her makeup...if she can't show the positive side to this then she will act like it never existed. YOUR SHIP HAS SAILED DUMBASS...

This is one of the (few) people who signed up for the cruise. So maybe Kate plans to "discuss" it after all.

TLC stinks said...

This is surprising about the cruise being cancelled since I thought whatever rooms were not booked would simply be released for regular booking. Either Kate cancelled or Alice Travel failed to meet their end of the deal with RC. We can be certain Kate will spin it that the cancellation had nothing to do with her.

Interestingly, I heard on the radio with my local consumer reporter guy, that the cruise lines are hurting big time and there are rock bottom deals out there. So, as a consumer, do you pay top dollar to spend time with your celebrity, or do you enjoy the ship with money to spare. Besides, I bet Kate made unreasonable demands of RC and I would not be surprised they told Alice Travel it was not worth it to them. The cost to put up Kate and her entourage was a losing deal for RC, IMO. Bottom line, they are already taking losses and why give Kate Gosselin a freebie if she can't pull in the reservations?

Maybe Kate didn't hear about the cancellation beforehand...kinda like hearing about the show cancellation when everyone else did,lol.

Wonder when Kate's going to get pissed that TLC continues to make money off her and the kids? Some tweetie told her how much she enjoyed watching the show, it's airing now in Singapore. And Katie ain't getting a dime, lol.

I don't think Jon is going to get invited to the kid's party today...everything bad happening to poor Kate is HIS fault.

one other thing...I've been thinking about their former tlc salaries, child support,ect..I bet she made Jon pay her for that old bbb...she's never given anything away without getting something in return.

LOVED this!!!

My speculation as to why the cruise was cancelled or "Kated": Maybe the person who "knows what she did" actually has something on Kate and would have revealed it prior to the cruise, thereby revealing her for the absolute fraud she is.

Whatever the reason, this made my day.

librarylady said...

Has this cancellation been officially confirmed? Just curious. After reading some tweets and Kate's cryptic messages to some to "email me" and such, I'm wondering if maybe the good ole Cruisin Kate is still on for those already signed up and they are just keeping it on the low.

KAT said...

She's emailing people privately because she doesn't want to bring it up on twitter. She would have to admit she's a failure at this too...

NT said...

Huffington post has a wish list for DWTS All Stars cast and Kate Gosselin is one of them!! I guess for comic relief. Mario Lopez let it slip that he was approached. The list looks really good if all those people agree to it. I'm sure if they approached Kate ,it would be because they had nothin else and I'm sure she would agree to it. If she is on it,I hope they give her Max cos he would put her in her place.

She'd still look like a fool on DWTS, but of course she wouldn't care. It's $$$ to her and she'd think she'd be "famous" again - although not for the reasons she's like, lol.

I can see them using her for comic humor. There was (and still is) publicity about her appearance. The DWTS folks could get mileage out of her returning. I hope not - with the twins old enough to watch and understand, I'd hope she'd turn down any offer.

Wait. This is Kate. Desperate Kate.

Haven't the ratings for DWTS been down a bit? Maybe they're reaching the point where they are looking for some negative publicity, so to speak, for some attention.

Although I think having her on would not be in the best interest of DWTS, despite ratings so people could diss her. The show is strictly entertainment for sure, but it still does have some shred of respect as being somewhat professional with even the "stars" - having her on would stomp that out in a flash.

KAT said...

She's not going anywhere....she done and over done. nobody wants her....SHE'S TOO MUCH TROUBLE!!!!

TLC stinks said...

It's kind of funny that Kate planned on TODAY to spotlight herself with the tups birthday but instead the cancellation of her cruise comes out. And there was Cindy weeks ago urging sheeple to sign up because the rooms were going fast! What a bunch of balony.

So I guess we'll just sit back and to see how Kate spins it. Whatever she says will be a lie. Maybe she's discussing with Steve at this very minute what to say. It will never be her fault.

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

I sincerely doubt that DWTS will invite Kate back on the show.

She was a dead weight, not entertaining, and a huge black emotional hole. Why would DWTS want that on their All Star show?

I'm more inclined to believe that they will invite back all the top dancers- hence the name,
DWTS All Stars?

Off topic:
I wonder if Kate will do something special for the fans that attempted to go on her cruise?

How convient that the sign, "under surveillance by monitor camera" has been hung up around the time that her cruise is cancelled.

Could she be concerned that her crazier sheep might pay her a visit?

Westcoaster said...

A very nice and positive birthday wish for the tups. However, Kate is still their mother. If an opportunity to exploit them for $$$ is ever on the horizon, she will always sign on the dotted line.

No cruise, and this book threatening - could be an interesting few weeks.

First, it's a wish list and Kate hasn't been asked. However, for ratings, it would work. She would do it because she is so dense. Doesn't even care that she is a laughingstock. It would be one thing if she could laugh at herself, but she takes herself seriously.

Ellasmum said...

DWTS fall show usually starts around the end of September and I believe her cruise was scheduled around mid August so even if she was to be an "all star" she would be able to do both! If she did go back on DWTS (I hope she doesnt)I would love her to partnered with Maks

Kate's Going Down said...

I would think DWTS would want someone for All-Stars with an actual personality. True, people love to hate Kate, but for All-Stars, they want something more than that, I'm sure. She has nothing. No personality, no dancing skills, no ability to laugh at herself, nothing.

I'd be willing to bet real big money she won't be asked. She's also too much trouble. Who wants to deal with that? Some Z list former reality TV star making pissy demands that REAL stars don't even make.

I'm still laughing about the cruise. As for verification, the site being pulled is enough for me. They wouldn't pull all the content off the page days before the last payments are due and when they're trying to get people to book rooms.

anger issues kate said...

Ok, it started: Kate just tweeted back to a cruise goer to please email me. The tweeter asked about meeting up with another cruiser. SO, Kate DOES KNOW, that the cruise is CANCELED.

If Kate had any pride or dignity, and honesty she would tell the truth: that her cruise did not meet amount of people needed for the cruise to be a go. Only 30 people of an expected 200, is not enough for a cruise, maybe on a small cruise ship, but not on a super large one. But, knowing our Kate, she will give some BS, on why the cruise was canceled. Right now it's all about the Tups birthday and then Mothers day, then she will deal with cruise. Unless she get bomb-barted by tweets & e-mails from those going, and wondering what happen and if they are gonna get their money back. So far, the media has not picked up on canceled cruise yet.

Once a Viewer said...

I think Kate realizes she bombed on DWTS...remember how angry she was at Mr Water Man on K+8 when he came to check her water filters and made a few dancing jokes. "I don't dance" she grumped.


But she'd be torn if offered any TV spot...

No cruise for Ms Kreider.
Meanwhile, on dwts this week, we saw bad dancer Kenny mayne return to do Dance Center with Jerry rice and len the judge. Kenny can't dance, but he is funny and gets asked back every time to do his Dance Center comedy commentary.
We also saw pro dancers return to do trio dances with remaining contestants. Saint Tony returned to dance with Cheryl and William and all three were smoking hot! (sorry, I should type hot!!!!!!!)
Ms Kreider, if you had been even halfway nice, maybe you to would be on TV to do a comedy bit. That ship has sailed too.

Anonymous, where in my example did I say that MOM is abusive? Give me a freaking break. That is, of course, a completely different situation.

I am talking about situations where teens don't like their parent (NOT because of abuse but the many reasons teens don't like their parents they grow out of) and think it would be romantic to live with deadbeat dad.

Stop shit stirring.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Kate needs to be honest about this. I don't think anyone would begrudge her if she was just open and honest and explained what happened and apologized. Even if it wasn't her fault it's still classy to apologize on behalf of the whole thing. An apology goes so far.

anger issues kate said...

Wowser: your right on: cause Kate won't be able to dress the tups the same, much longer. The boys will hit a point, that they will not like wearing the same clothes, just as the girls, they will be just like the twins. You will see kate have a fit, and then probably send them to live with dad. When the kids, probably the boys becoma a hand full, Kate will most likely send them to live with dad. And if Kate is still even mentioned in the media, Kate will make a thing about it.

Just throwing it out there.....but when does Celebrity Apprentice film?

On the remote chance this IS some kind of gig like that I don't think Kate would be allowed to say why the cruise was cancelled.

Kate's Going Down said...

Kate is also sad with every passing birthday because she knows children are harder and harder to control as they get older. As a narcissist, she gets off on controlling everyone around her, micromanaging them, barking at them, making them do her every whim, but she KNOWS the older kids get the less likely they are to put up with that.

Eventually SOME of those kids are going to rebel. The harder they've been controlled, the harder teens tend to rebel. It's human nature. So she's cruising quickly toward a beat down in her future.

@Kateplusmy8 so so sorry about cruise cancellation

Well, here's a surprise. This is mumbear from Australia who met up with Kate at the Steve Irwin Day event. I wonder if she's had confirmation from one of the other sheeple she stays in touch with, or if she's going out on a limb here. She doesn't tweet Kate directly much these days, although she still claims she is a supporter. When there's any "news" circulating about Kate, she's always DM-ing with the various sheeple (esp. milo). Very interesting.

Kate's Going Down said...

I think the chances that Kate Gosselin got another TV/media job are 0%.

Gift of grab said...

Mark Burnett is the creator and exec producer of CA. I wonder. . . .

Gift of grab said...

I found this on Wikipedia (sounds accurate):

The Celebrity Apprentice 5
Season run February 19, 2012 – May 20, 2012
Filming Dates October 17, 2011 – November 21, 2011
Number of episodes 15
Number of candidates 18

So unless they plan to start filming 2 months earlier than the current season, it doesn't look like this would pose a timing problem for Kate v-a-v the cruise.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

This is surprising about the cruise being cancelled since I thought whatever rooms were not booked would simply be released for regular booking

&&&

I think that's true about the state rooms, however I don't think there is a lot they can do to cover the windfall of all the private rooms set aside for the events, the charity cocktail thing plus the shore excursion. This all costs money.

Royal Caribbean figures for each room or activity set aside they need to make X amount of dollars. This is to cover the extra planning and work of organizing the event, the staff on hand, the printing of signs marking the event, other supplies, the food, the extra cleaning, all that. It really isn't five bucks to hold a room, it's more like several hundred and depending on how elaborate the event is, like the charity cocktail thing, maybe even over a thousand. Plus what they give up not holding their own event in there instead like poker or trivia or whatever stupid things they always do.

It has to be worth it to them dollar wise to give up the rooms and labor instead of using those resources on regular passengers. I'm just taking a wild guess it's probably not going to be worth it with just 5, 10, 20 or 30 people going.

Filming schedules could change every year depending on when the new season is slated to start. That's the spring season schedule, what about the fall?

Celeb Apprentice is doing really well right now. They may be doing a celebrity apprentice for the fall season, which would probably film in the summer and may actually put the beginning of August just about right for wrapping up filming.

silimom said...

Re: Cruise - we all saw this coming when it was first announced. I, too, believe it was cancelled due to low numbers and I would have some respect for Kate if she admitted that. Hopefully she won't turn it into a dramafest.

Re: DWTS - Oh, I could see ABC wanting her and Bristol Palin on for the ratings boost. The question is, would any of the dancers agree to dance with Kate after her previous behavior? I guess they may not have a choice. However, I think as was mentioned before that this will be the top dancers asked back.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Yeah All Star shows seem to go two ways. One the BEST players, and one the most memorable players. There's a difference.

I don't know if DWTS is going for the sheer raw talent which Kate is not a part of, or most memorable, in that case they could very well make her an offer.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

On the remote chance she does end up with DWTS I hope they DO stick her with a different partner just so we can prove it had nothing to do with Tony she still sucks and will probably suck even worse with someone else.

Admin, I know we have all discussed CA numerous times, but I think on the off chance Kate would be considered, she would most definitely be one of the first fired. She is not creative, doesn't play well with others and is LAZY! So lazy, that she couldn't even come up with a charity for her cruise, how will she pick one for CA. Can you imagine her as project manager?! Masterminding!

Nene Leakes let it slip that they are paid $25,000 to participate, that along with all the time away from her kids may sway her. She doesn't care that she lacks the ability to be a meaningful, useful asset. Unless a task calls for lifting 50lb bags of things or hauling groceries.

Hmm. The Gosslinbook thing is so creepy. That comment about Deanna lying twice for Kate and how Deanna rocked in her boots on Easter Sunday.....makes me think it has to be someone that was at the house. Also the comment about donating money to a charity if there was a photo of Kate stuffing those plastic eggs. I got to believe there really is a book by someone really pissed at Kate. Can't wait for Preesi's theory.

I just hope Kate doesn't plead security concerns for the cruise cancellation. I would think Alice Travel or RC would have to publicly come out with a statement. She can't lie her way out of this.

Admin, this gives an idea of when cast stops participating in other things and filming, etc.

Whatever might come, she unfortunately has pretty much put the zap on any public support. Pretty much set her reputation and dislike at this point.

The official answer my source was given was "the numbers Kate expected did not meet her expectations" and Kate will reach out to all that booked. I hope Kate does reach out to each and every one of them.

Interesting that they are blaming this on Kate, KATE wasn't satisfied. Wonder if she was embarrassed.

Hey.....does anyone think Kate will somehow finagle this cruise for herself anyway? As in she still goes on the trip without it being the official celeb cruise? Now that would be truly evil.

c-section after laboring is exhausting.C-section, planned but complications during such as removing massive amounts of adhesions from previous c-section is exhausting. Kate's exhaustion after the c-section to deliver the tups probably party due to fear/worry.

And you KNOW I absolutely HATE to lean in Kate's favor for anything, but gotta give her a bit of leeway on the tups arrival in 2004.

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

Same here. I had three C's and a final VBAC (a "regular" delivery--much to my doc's surprise! He'd scheduled the C ten days before my due date, telling me a C was my only option. But my son decided to come 11 days early, and as the doc arrived at the hospital to do my C, the other doc greeted him holding my baby! I'll never forget the look on his face. LOL.)

All four had their difficulties. You can labor quite a while before a C (although Kate probably didn't due to multiples--I don't know). The recovery time for the C is longer, more painful and can be complicated. But the labor is exhausting for a regular birth and then there's tearing to contend with. It's a mixed bag. They each have advantages and disadvantages, but I'd vote for vaginal. I won't even get into the issues with my first C where the anesthesia didn't fully take, the hasty shots of morphine, my daughter being born limp and drugged with morphine. That was horrible.

To happier things...the cancellation of the cruise! It's so amusing to think the Hitler video (and all the rest of us) were right! It's late in the season for those left high and dry (pun?) to make reservations for something else.

librarylady said...

That's really double-speak for "she'd have to pay for her own cruise", lol

Kate's Going Down said...

The only thing I'd watch Kate in is Big Brother. Or something similar. I want to see her trapped in a house with a few other narcissists and crazies.

They'd eat her alive. She might be tough when she's barking to kids or a beat-down husband, but I think she'd more than meet her match on a show like that and have to leave with real tears rolling down her face and her tail tucked between her legs.

Now THAT I would watch.

(But not really. I don't want to see her on TV at all. What has she done to earn a good-paying job? Nothing.)

Pity Party said...

That Kenny Mayne does that every year. It is pretty funny. I thought I put this up, but wasn't there an episode where KT was watching the gate at the counter. I think the surveillance has been there, only the sign is new.

Too bad KT didn't give it her all and learn to dance. They have a DWTS show in Vegas now. Not sure if it has past stars on or just pros. But it is just Roshon said when he got voted off, this has opened up so many doors for me and I am so happy for the experience. No one cried like a baby or made excuses. They were glad for the opportunity. I don't think she will be back. Too much of a damper on the spirit of the show.

Kate's Going Down said...

Oh admin, my FIRST thought was that she'll find a way to go on the cruise anyway. Without the twins. With Steve, of course, because she can't handle life without a babysitter and because she thinks she's so important.

But she won't pay for it. If she can't get Alice Travel or RC to pay for it, or at least 90% of it, she won't do it. But she'll damn sure try to get a free cruise.

SHE'S OWED! (In her mind.) So I wonder if anyone will "know how to help her."

She makes me barf.

Dmasy said...

No cruise...well, now she can spend her time creating a wonderful summer for the kids. Right?

I am not suggesting cleaning or organizing projects!

I wonder how long she's known about the cancellation. Cindy HAD to have told her before tonight.

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

I'm behind on the news, just catching up as I can. Wasn't Kate recently in NY for her hair? And someone outed her? If you look back at Cindy's early tweets last fall, she talks about meeting Kate in NY and how her "new friend Kate Gosselin" got her started tweeting. Cindy lives in NJ but obviously spends some time in NY to work the "reality crowd" for her cheesy cruises. So maybe she and Kate connected on Kate's recent trip, and Kate received the news.

As Khate believes "If you hype it enough..Your bested frien always will screw it up just enough to cancel for "safety's" sake..so I get to cruise alone with my purse-nal security"

yah me.!!!!!!!

dang am on phone. Was that 8 !!!!!!!! ?

Mel said...

Wonder if the cruise cancellation is what that gosselinbook person meant when he/she said something about get ahead of the story, tell the truth.
Apparently she didn't listen.
This would have been so much better coming from her mouth first, even if it was just spin.
It's sooooo stupid the way she lets things bubble out behind the scenes and then gets pissed off that they've become public.
In this day and age you can hide nothing; it's better to announce whatever yourself so you can get your side of the story out there first. Way better than "setting the record straight."
No one believes you when you spin your story after the fact.

If you watch CA you can see that they film in the warm weather (to include the "you're fired!) but do the walking out of the elevator of shame into the cab scenes in the cold weather. You can tell by the clothes they're wearing. I would like tovsee Kate on it especially if they had another Lisa on with her. I don't know that Kate would agree to CA because I think she's at least smart enough to know that they would chew her up and spit her out. As for DWTS, based on an article that I read in early May, I don't think that it's a done deal yet and the producers are still discussing they may be puttin out feelers to some celebs and I think that Mario dimples admitted that he was a little premature when he tLked about it.

Celebrity Apprentice seems a good guess if they do start filming in late summer. She would garner ratings, and she has said they have asked her several times.

If she was smart she would get out in front of this cruise cancellation with a simple statement on her simple blog. She can easily blame it on the poor economy, cruise bookings being way down this year, etc. Say something now and take the flack later when/if the better gig becomes public knowledge.

Of course we are all speculating, but whatever the reason this cruise was cancelled, she should ACKNOWLEDGE it openly and dare I say professionally. These 30 people have made arrangements around their work, their summer plans, and deserve something of an explanation from her!

Kate's Going Down said...

Dmasy, I've been wondering what the hell she's going to do this summer. I mean, true, Jon has them more often now, so that will get her away from them from time to time.

But they won't be gone nine hours a day, five days a week. They'll be there. AT the orphanage. ALL the time, except when Jon has them.

She's going to have to quickly figure out a way to ditch the kids and leave them with nannies as much as possible or.....oh my God, the mind reels at the thought of this dreadful thing: SPEND A LOT OF TIME WITH HER KIDS.

But no, surely that would NEVER happen.

Driving past Kate's home today, I noticed a sign on her mailbox

"under surveillance by monitor camera"

wow...interesting
----------

post from another blog.
Hmm...she should have had that in place YEARS ago. Posting it now, could be several reasons..
1..Steve set up a system for her, now that he may no longer be on the property..
2. could be due to that freaky tweeting going on, with the countdown, etc.
3. she may have had trespassers...

Her buying that property was one of the stupidest things she could have ever done. Everyone knows where they live, EVERYONE. She has all those kids sitting out there like sitting ducks. And that's creepy.

I never understood why she needs security in public places like airports and fundraisers, lol. I think the real danger is her running the country roads by herself. That's a risk everyone takes these days,but she has upped it due to her 'fame'.

with her tweet to that chick to email her, and now her twitter silence, I bet she didn't find out the cruise was cancelled until everyone else did, and that's funny,lol.
Maybe she won't tweet today, but I bet that birthday party is going to be interesting. And Kate, you don't need a film crew, you WILL remember this birthday.
:)

librarylady said...

Maybe because there were so few for the cruise she was afraid she'd actually have to speak to and interact with them instead of trying to use a large group as an excuse not to "mingle".

Tucker's Mom said...

The official answer my source was given was "the numbers Kate expected did not meet her expectations" and Kate will reach out to all that booked.
****
(blink blink blink...) whaaa?????
Kate expected a number. OK. That particular number did not met her expectation?
Should it read as; Kate anticipated larger numbers and what we got booked did not me her expectations.
In other words, there were not enough bookings to pull the trigger...

librarylady said...

I find it interesting that goofy Cindy was still tweeting about the cruise only 2 days ago.

This is the time when a good publicist would insist that Kate issue a statement telling the truth about what happened, apologizing and thanking everyone. By the way are the poor sheeple living in denial about this or are they talking about it?

I feel really bad for that Gypsy chick who had to be so harassed only to have the cruise not go forward ANYWAY.

anger issues: I think that's why Kate dresses the boys in clothes that are WAY too big...it gives the appearance that they are "smaller" and "younger" than they really are. She doesn't do that with the girls because she already thinks they have the ultimate "cute" factor and the "icky boys" don't
