It's top of the morning where I am and I just woke up to this hysterical news. After some baw-hahahahhahas for a few minutes, I dissolved into quiet embarrassment for her. Has she learned NOTHING from the cruise? Does she know NOTHING about her fans' demographic? Hint, most of them are not athletic.

By the way Chicago in July? BRUTAL.

I laughed at this too as others did. Don't pay any attention to that man behind the curtain. Just trust us give us your money don't worry all your questions will be answered later. Wouldn't you rather be surprised anyway? Cash only please.

You know what's a better idea, Kate or CC will PAY for the first 10 fans who sign up. It's only 45 bucks for cripe sake you cheap bastards.

Oh I also see on the sign ups, had CC and Kate gotten organized sooner, fans would have only had to pay $35 to run this if they signed up before March 31.

Katie Cry-duh said...

To answer your question, she hasn't learned squat from her cruise. She's back on twitter encouraging people to do it do it do it, including the physically frail Milo. Also, she really does believe she ran an 8 minute mile in this last race. She asked one of her fans if she was ready to run 5K in 25 minutes. 5K = 3.1 miles. 3.1 miles x 8 min/mi = 24.8 minutes. Her race time was fine; she can't just enjoy the moment. More more more!

OrangeCrush said...

I have said this before but who at CC thinks Kate is worth any of this; did they not see her interview on the Today show? The one they arranged? And her blog posts for them are pathetic.

Oh sure, run in Chicago in July. No thanks. Kate and fans running together at 6:030 am, for charity, a charity this woman most certainly does not contribute a personal dime to. And if the fans are surrounding Kate, guess the bodyguard will have to be running too. Oh, the image of Steve Neild in running shorts, pass the brain bleach.

Our sins are forgiven. Bless-ed be the name of Kate Amen.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

She sure talks a big game about "hanging out" with all her adoring fans but at the end of the day I think she just wants them to sing her praises from a safe distance on twitter. I don't really believe she wants to be face to face with them.

All these events that never come to fruition are just ruses for her to listen to them talk about how much they want to breathe the same air as her. This will never happen just like Jon knew all along the cruise would never happen either.

SoCal Native said...

No offense to Chicago residents, as I love your city and believe it is awesome and exciting, but the last thing I want to do is run a "mini marathon" with a has-been reality loser in oppressive heat and humidity in the Midwest in late July. Even at 6:30 a.m. I was there a few years ago in June. The temps were in the mid 70's, but it was unbearably humid. We were sweating just walking around the river and Lakeshore Drive, for crying out loud.

What is a mini marathon, anyway? Is this some lame made-up event designed to attract Kate's out-of-shape fans? Maybe her tweeny fans will go with their moms...

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I have family in Chicago and spent a week there in July as a teen. Bleeech. It makes little difference whether it's 6:30 a.m. It's like any place with brutal summer humidity. The humidity is just as bad at midnight, 3 am or 6 am. Frankly I find it pretty reckless to run in such conditions. You better absolutely know what you are doing if you do that. It's not for some kind of amateur fan who knows nothing about this sport. Running is simple but hydrating and fueling your body under a variety of conditions is where it starts to get complicated.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

1. Nonstop flight from Philly to SD: approx $500 round trip per person.

&&&&

Pulling this over from the other thread but.....not for FIRST CLASS which she frequently is seen in. First class you're looking at a grand and up.

But hey at least she is saving 10 cents on ice cream.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I had another thought about this. What if there were seven or eight fans who sign up and one or two are running a 15 minute mile. Is the rest of the group and Kate supposed to slow down to a crawl to keep up with them or will she leave them in the dust? Kate is running a nine minute mile thereabouts, likely a bit faster for just a 5k. I highly doubt most of her fans can do that without extensive training. And when just a month and a half to train that's not a lot of time.

How you do a group run when fans will have abilities all across the board from A to Z is a mystery to me.

Starz22 said...

So this is kates new claim to fame? She's a runner?

Well dearest katie poo...this is nothing new. We have seen you run for YEARS. You have ran from you'r husband...you'r church...you'r morals...you'r friends...you'r family... and the children any and EVERY chance you get.
But yet, you can't run away from being a puke.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Regarding the excellent point made by many people that Kate NEVER (or rarely....) talks about money saving tips for herself. Could she at least attempt to pretend that she also cuts back when it comes to herself?

How about a post on do-it-at home manicures? Or tanning lol. Pull up a 5 buck beach chair from Walmart and sit under the sun. Travel tips to save money.

It's always about cutting corners for the kids. We see now why--all the more money for Mommy to do her first class things.

Another fiasco in the making said...

Hi Admin,
Not to criticize your post, but it's not Kate who's inviting fans to run with her, but it's Coupon Cabin (so far anyway). I wonder how much, if any, Kate will be promoting this latest joke. Just like the cruise, this is full of overlooked details, potential problems, and is another fiasco in the making. I also wonder if this is the race that some of the kids will be running with her (as she slyly mentioned would be upcoming).

Localyocul said...

Admin I was going to post what you posted above. Is she supposed to run as slow as her slowest fan? And the one fan that lives nearby is an avid runner. If I live nearby Id be tempted to sign up and jog really really slowly.

Vanessa said...

Haha! Like you admin, I'm laughing this morning, laughing and shaking my head. You're suggestion makes sense: CC should pay for some of the entry fees AND should have posted it for the early bird fee. Really, she's going to schmooze with her "fans"? That Elvis guy in SD had to jump through hoops just to get a damn picture with the queen! I wonder if CJ's going to get involved with this too?

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Well I'll say this at least they're not overcharging beyond the regular price. I guess they learned one thing from the cruise.

I find it kind of patronizing that CC would think that this kind of thing is remotely interesting to anyone, even the most die hard fans. Is anyone even that excited about this on twitter? Not that I've heard.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

&&&

LOL now that would be funny. Let's all sign up then jog 20 minute miles. I owe my family a visit.

mkmom2 said...

I live in Chicago, I agree it's warm and humid here in July. Even with that said, most races here are sold out events, we don't need Kate to come here.
I also find it weird, well not really because it's Kate, but most people travel to do a full marathon, not a half. My husband is a runner and has many friends that our runners and they travel to do fulls, but stay home or within driving distances to do half marathon.
UGH, stay away from Chicago. Stay home with your kids or take them somewhere, you don't need another excuse to leave them.

DebbieDowner4 said...

Sooooooooooo......

Let's recap..

A few years ago Grifty was on top of the world - on tv, almost all magazine covers, Today Show, The View, The Talk, there was rumors of her joining the panle of The Talk, limo rides to NYC, fawning, book signings, Dancing with the Stars, and she was "trending" on Yahoo on a regular basis.

Then, the cameras stopped, a nasty divorce, and she tried to wear her "Independent Supermom" superhero cape. Then, No more Grifty + 8. Twist of Kate? nope. Cooking with Paula Dean? nada. Her true personality came through - anyone who saw the shows, including the RV trip could see that. Still, she was determined to keep her name out there. Begging for a job on tv, claiming she is BROKE...while driving an Audi sportscar. No Hollywood bigwigs came a'callin'....but she still wants to hold onto fame by her fake nails....so, this 37 year old moter of 8 took a job blogging for a coupon website. (I'll pause until you stop laughing). Then, mediocre job be damned....she'll be a cruise hostess! That will be wonderful and another career venture for her! Those plans floated away (pun completely intended - hell, I'm already on my 2nd cup of coffee here!)

Fast forward to present day - she can't get a job on tv if she visited every casting couch in California. Her ego is huge, but her reputation is bigger. Nobody wants to touch her. (Skevie, you should know better). Her lifeline to the outside world is Twitter. She is so desperate to be a stage mom she posted a video of her daughter snapping her toes. Maybe, just maybe, she is starting to realize that she has no future on tv. Ever. So, what's an almost 40 year old mother of 8 to do? Nose to the grindstone and look for a 9-5 job? Nope. Brush off that nursing degree and get a job with health benefits, retirement, and vacation days? Hell no....do you know how mediocre that sounds? Plus, nurses work 25 hours a day, every day, and she just can't be away from her precious preschoolers that long. But she'll willing to work her fingers to the bone at McDonalds to provide for her kids! And run marathons farrrrrrr awayyyyy from her kids.

Now....she'll have yet another marathon, with people paying to be in her presence. $45...(40 bucks with a Q-pon!!!) Really? If it wasn't so pathetically funny it would be just pathetic. How is that going to support the kids? Let's be generous and say her cut will be $30 for each sucker/guinea pig who runs with her....how will that put the kids through college? Buy cars in a few years when the twins can drive. More cars later down the road when the tups drive. Pathetic. Just pathetic.

When the mighty fall...they fall hard....but she was only mighty only in her mind.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Debbie, you said it all. She is a deadbeat mom, period. How much can a few marathons every six months possibly pay? Good grief.

If this were Jon running a few marathons and posting a few blog posts to "support" his family the sheeple would rip him to freaking shreds. This is what moms and dads do for HOBBIES not to seriously support a big family.

KAT said...

I don't know about anyone else, but I can't stop laughing. Will it be canceled for lack of participants...you know...like her "cruise"? Would that just be the icing on the cake? Can't wait to see how many people register...also what's the charity?...............HER......

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Have any other celebs done such a thing, invited fans to run alongside them? Who does she think she is Forrest Gump?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHPNGbh36Dg

I saw Howie Mandel doing a triathlon once and he was just doing it to do it. I didn't notice any fans there going ga ga over him. He would have blended in with the crowd had not a pap snapped a photo.

barbee said...

KAT, you're right, iciing on the cake (runny, at that). I suppose that's what you'd expect from a professional 'runner', runny icing (totally lameish snark intended).

The depth of her lack of awareness is amazingly amazingish. She STILL doesn't know how done she is. No one wanted to cruise with her although there is plenty else to do onboard ship. Why the hell would they want to slog along around her in heat and humidity listening to her pop her gum and watch her doing whatevah on her 9000 pink phone. What the hell can she be doing on that thing while she is running? Why the hell does she have to carry it while she is in a race? Who the hell is interested enough in her for her to call them while she is running? Just plain WHAT THE HELL?????? ?? (did ya recognize the sextuplet and twin question marks?)

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I changed the post title to CC since you're right it really is CC inviting them.

The only thing that would make this better is if that stupid trust fund baby chick from the cruise were organizing this whole thing.

koopdedoo said...

Let's think about this, Khate...how many LOCAL 5K runs are there in any given city on any given weekend? How many people that do not live in Chicago will think the $5 coupon to participate in a run with you is enough to offset the travel expenses?

TLC stinks said...

Oh brother. What is Coupon Cabin thinking? I have to wonder who came up with this brilliant idea, Kate or CC? What does running have to do with a website hawking coupons? Kate is a terrible spokesperson but somebody at CC either loves her or loves the controversy she invokes. CC will make sure this event will be covered by the press, and Kate is all for that. In fact, she will probably be making the rounds on Chicago radio and local shows, if CC is really smart. Kate and Steve must be so excited to get yet another free hotel LOVE NEST stay.

Girl From Up North said...

It almost sounds like CC decided to do this without askin, but tellin, Kate - you know, "ok Kate, if you are going to flit around to marathons, we'll take you for this one, thank you very much".

KAT said...

She just won't give up...no matter how ridiculous. She is determined to make money off her name. Hopefully after a couple of these failures she will finally give up. I still can't believe this. CC has some balls taking a chance with this idiot. God forbid she should get a real job instead of taking advantage of those mindless fans of hers...

TLC stinks said...

BTW Coupon Cabin, Kate is a "FORMER" reality star as correctly identified by San Diego press releases.

KAT said...

This was HER idea. She's always looking for a good scam. SHE'S A HUSTLER...PLAIN AND SIMPLE...

TLC stinks said...

Hey, if somebody from here goes, please be our imbedded reporter. And take pictures. I wonder why there haven't been any pictures floating around from the SD run other than pap or newspaper photos? Odd that sooooo many Kate fans have not been posting their candid photos with Kate. She is, after all, such a friendly person.

terri said...

Well i guess Kate did a sit down for the Insider.Com and it was just a repeat of the same old BS she spews forth every chance she gets. Kids miss being on tv, she doesn't date because she doesn't fir the "norm" of the dating world, she and Jon get along better and yadda, yadda, yadda. I guess this interview explains why she was gone for longer than she needed to be.

NT said...

Well,here's another vacation that she gets free of charge. i grew up in Chicago and it is VERY hot and humid in July. But it's only 5k so this should be doable for her. Not so much for Steve tho unless he gets into shape.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

In other reality show/child star news, Amanda Beins was charged with a DUI, and one of the teen moms got five years in prison for possession.

http://www.miamiherald.com/2012/06/05/2834521/woman-on-mtvs-teen-mom-gets-5.html

And look at Amanda Beins' tweet, how pathetic “Hey @BarackObama… I don’t drink. Please fire the cop who arrested me. I also don’t hit and run. The end.”

So, good hardworking decent police officers who suspect someone is drunk and pull you over should be FIRED? For trying to save the lives of others on the road? God she sounds like Kate.

mama mia said...

I see, the new PR person's strategy is to put Kate in places where crowds gather and hope people assume these are her fans. Brilliant! I shall look for Kate handing out coupons for a free Pepsi next time I am lined up at Disney.

##################

I see a pattern, don't you? Extreme excitement beforehand, hush-hush in the aftermath. Nothing said that's not positive, and limited photo ops. All that said (and duly noted), I suspect that they're required to sign some sort of confidentiality agreement that restricts what they can say/pictures they can post. What do you wanna bet Steve carries a sheaf o' them in his knapsack?

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

It's so embarrassing that the only fan events Kate has come up with essentially involve the fans circling around her adoring her. She doesn't really do much for them in return--doesn't perform a rock concert, make a sculpture, swing on the trapeze. She just sort of is and apparently that's enough for her.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

&&&

There was no confidentiality agreement at her Santa Monica book signing. We were allowed to take all the photos we wanted of her and no one said a thing about not posting them or signing anything.

I doubt they pass out confidentiality agreements, the truth is the fans end up only mildly let down, outright disappointment or downright offended and don't know how to react on twitter after.

Kate is a Witch said...

Pulled from the end of the last thread:

I think it might be fun to guess what's next.

First it was cruise with Kate (and make a craft with her, LOL!). Three grand! Hardly anyone signed up, it was a clusterf*ck, and then it was canceled.

Now it's run with Kate. That'll flop, too. Everything she touches (reverse Midas touch) flops.

So what's after that? It'll get less elaborate and cheaper as time goes on.

How about SHOPPING WITH KATE! Pay $50 to shop with Kate and learn all her money-saving tips! Shopping trip takes place in New York!

When no one signs up for that and/or it's a clusterf*ck and has to be canceled:

TANNING WITH KATE! For just $25 YOU can tan in the SAME TANNING SALON Kate uses! She will stop by to say hello either before or after your session, unless something comes up! Don't stand next to her until Steve gives you permission to!

Whoops, that'll fail.

Next: PRETEND TO BE KATE'S PAP! For $5 you can stand at the corner of ____________ and ______________ (road names to be email later after vetting and once your payment clears) with a camera and snap a picture as Kate comes speeding by! No personal photos with Kate, but she'll wave at you as she RACES past you!

I have the horrible feeling nose-picking with Kate would be after that.

Kate is a Witch said...

Who would fly to another city to run a 5K? There are literally dozens odor them a year in my area.

And there are a lot of celebrities I like, but I can't name a single one I'd fly across the country for to run in a 5K with them.

That's just weird.

##############

Right, and likely because it was at a public venue, and the event was orchestrated by someone else. (In my experience--some of it on the author side of those signing tables--most event coordinators actively encourage photos & interactions. Plain and simple, it's good business. See also: FUN!)

But hey, when it comes to those @TwitterFan meet-ups, we're all just guessing, right? Nobody knows for sure, other than the parties who were there.

sally said...

According to the site, a mini-marathon is 3 miles. Who would even spend $45.00 to run 3 miles in their area is beyond me. And to fly to Chicago to run 3 miles? This is crazy

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Improbable the marathon is a public event too though. Kate or any celeb can always make a request that confidentiality agreements be signed at such events, I really doubt she does though. Any adviser would tell her that would just alienate fans and make it look like you have something to hide. It's really not a good idea. I think they're just too embarrassed to admit their disappointment. But for nannies, housekeepers, Steve, of course most celebs do that and I'm sure Kate would.

DebbieDowner4 said...

Admin - I'm assuming you are an attorney or work in the legal field (just based on your older posts). I have a question for you - what would happen if someone refused to sign a confidentiallity agreement? If Grifty and Skieve are in a public place and someone snaps a picture, is that person free to do whatever he wants with the picture or video? I'm guessing you can't force someone to sign something, and if that happens Skevie and Grifty could (guessing here) face harassment/intimidation charges? If Skevie tries to take away someone's camera could he (Skevie) face assault charges?

Bottom line is I can't see how dumb and dumber keep getting away with BS like that. Maybe I'll just happen to find myself in Chicago on July 22nd....near the race....if its in a public park and I don't sign anything, take pictures and run into Skevie - heck, I'll sue the pants off him if he tries to take away my pnone or put his hands on me....(just got that visual...pass the brain bleach...)

(From last thread)
Kate is a twit said... 66
I wonder if this mini marathon is the "dream" she mailed and sealed with a kiss. Maybe she mailed CC a proposal about what a great idea it was. She'll get the fans hyped for it because of the SD run, she'll run the mini because the kids can particpate, CC will get advertising from the t-shirts, and all CC has to do is pay for it.
________________

If THIS is her dream, she needs some serious psychiatric help, like yesterday. Or maybe just intensive career counseling.

On Twitter, there are about 8-10 people who have expressed interest. Most are local, but gypsi (from TX!) is mulling it over. Another woman, a runner who was one of the first to start talking on Twitter to Kate about running, would have to drive 7 hours, and she claims to be considering it.

But outside of local fans and a few diehards, plus the people CC can strong-arm into doing it, once again this is an ill-fated scheme. For a run at 6:30 a.m., anyone from out of town has to pay not only for travel but for overnight expenses. So for these people, it's not a $40 entry fee (with discount! and T-shirt!), it's a minimum $300-400 excursion. And do these people really think they're going to get "quality" time with Kate? She did everything she could to avoid Elvis until one of her true fans called her out on it the night before the marathon. Did Kate take any trouble to meet him? NO, he had to get up at like 5 a.m., on a Sunday, and jump through hoops to find her at the finish line by 8:30 or thereabouts. And all he got was a couple of pix and some Kate-sweat.

Kate may think that her "fans" are the key to her continued success, but unless and until she can show that she really cares and, yes, can realistically pretend to LIKE these people, fans are not going to be her return road to stardom. There are not enough of them, and she simply cannot hold back her obvious contempt for them. Anyone considering doing this should watch that Extra video where Steve is having to actually argue with her about stopping and taking a few photos. That's the REAL Kate, not the fraud we see on Twitter day after day.

And I don't believe CC (or Kate) is doing this for the money. Even if they got 1,000 people to sign up, RnR has to get the lion's share, and what are they left with? A couple grand? PLUS Katie Irene's royal expenses? No, they're doing it only for the publicity. However much they can muster. And she didn't get a lot of it in SD. BTW, CC posted this on their site 18 hours ago. # of comments? ZERO.

KAT said...

Wait until the "real" runners find out the charity they're running for is KATE!!! Shame on CC for letting this con artist rob the last of her pathetic fans.

And what is this "your forgiven" nonsense? Does that mean that the person that insulted her doesn't have to go to confession now? What an ego on this delusional asshole...

Buddy said...

This is the dumbest idea that she has come up with yet. Seriously, why would Coupon Cabin think this is a good idea? Did they not see the epic failure of the cruise? People go on Coupon Cabin to find deals. If they wanted to run the Chicago Marathon, they could have signed up earlier at a cheaper price. Kind of ironic.

DebbieDowner4 (19) said...

"Plus, nurses work 25 hours a day, every day, and she just can't be away from her precious preschoolers that long."

Bahahahaha, I laughed out loud at that. Very valid points over all though.

The same woman who said she'd work at McDonald's to support her kids, won't go back to nursing but will continue to spend huge amounts of money trying to hold on to a thread of fame.

She publicly states that she WON'T spend money to take her kids to a movie but she's more than happy to fly across the country just to run for two freakin' hours.

Yep, priorities. Her kids are so going to resent the hell out of her when they grow up. It may take another decade but karma will rear its head.

Sad part is, she'll likely just blame the kids calling them unappreciative and ungrateful.

"But I did it all for YOU! I flew across the country upteen times a year, rode in limos, stayed in fancy hotels, ate at posh restaurants, did television interviews and hung out with a married man for YOU!"

Her hypocrisy gets more and more ridiculous with every lame event she attaches herself to.

Her grasp has long since exceeded her mediocre reach and still, there she is, with her hand out.

LoveMyGrandsons said...

This is hysterical and like the cruise, it won't pan out.

However, hysterics aside, I'm in the Chicago area and we don't want her here!!!!

Buddy said...

I'm sorry, but Gypsi from Twitter is a total dumbass. How many times do you get burned before you get it?

Gift of grab said...

KAT (46), I think it's a misapprehension that these RnR runs benefit charities. I think RnR provides links and info about how to promote yourself and/or a team as running to benefit a charity, but I don't believe that they, as a for-profit company, guarantee any portion of their receipts to charity. If anyone knows otherwise, please speak up. If I recall, one of the criticisms I read about their LV marathon was that a lot of entrants thought some of their fee was going to charity, but it was only if individual runners actually organized and got sponsors.

Gift of grab said...

BTW, here's the link to the "official" charities involved in RnR Chicago: http://runrocknroll.competitor.com/chicago/charity

wowser said...

it won't matter what she does...each event she will lose more and more sheeple because she does NOT want to be seen with them or HAVE to pose for pictures with them. The dip in TX who is willing to spend airfare to run with Kate will figure it out fast enough that all that money is not worth a 2 second snub from Kate and a bunch of "i love you" platitudes on twitter. I compared her to Gump months ago and now she is officially "runnang" with all her 2 batshit crazy fans. ugghh

Once a Viewer said...

The run is another pathetic attempt to stay in the spotlight - CC, you are so dumb!

'Hanging' with besties M and C- no friends- it's obvious. Kate, please let those girls be girls. And don't try to mold them into what you want them to be- Mady seems more pliable atm, but Cara is not a clone- don't make her feel she doesn't measure up- this could cause trouble between the twins.

Kate is a twit said...

The link that says "Register here for the Chicago Mini-Marathon with CouponCabin & Kate!" takes you to the RnR website to register. I guess the only way CC will know who registered because of Kate is if they use the Coupon Code.

So first you sign up-pay a non-refundable fee-(don't forget to use the coupon code)and then they will be "in touch with race logistics"? Shades of deja vu.

Kate is talking about it-but she's not promoting it. You'd think she'd have provided the link to the CC site, so her tweeties would have more info. Just like the cruise-she expects someone else to do the work, her only job is to show up.

KAT said...

Its only a 3 mile marathon????? OMG....What a set up. She just wants people to show so she can make some money. Thats why its only 3 miles. More people will show up if they make THAT easy. I knew it...it IS a scam to line her pockets. This woman should be arrested for conning the public. You know there's no real charity connected to this. Maybe someone will investigate it...

LoveMyGrandsons said...

Kate is a Witch #39 - Bwahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!

PatK said...

I don't see how the kids could partiicipate with Kate in something like this so far away. She certainly isn't going to foot the bill for airfare and expenses for them for a mini marathon in Chicago. And what about the logistics of keeping them all in a tight little group together and away from others during said run? Who would pay for the additional bodyguards/nannies? Whatever run she's planning with her kids would have to be someplace more local to her, imo.

Good God, Kate...seek real employment. Running these marathons is NOT an occupation.

KAT said...

Kate is a Witch@39.....too funny....hey, I might pay to see that nose pickin'.....

KAT said...

Can't wait to see how low she will sink after this fails.....wait...I think I'm seeing it now...

Gift of grab said...

PatK, here's an idea: She could rent an RV and drive them all to Chicago! Oh wait . . .

Kate is a twit said...

She won't be making money off her fans(like she would have on the cruise). However, she will be getting another free trip, courtesy of CC.

I really think this was her idea and somehow she sold it to CC. Grifting is her forte after all.

Jumping In said...

Could this be the trip the kids have been waiting for, finally a chance to go away with their mommy this summer? They could all pile in the BBB with Steve at the wheel and drive to Chicago! After their 700 plus mile drive, the pay off is running
5K with a hand-full of their (mother's) fans at 6:30 a.m. in the morning in oppressive humidity.

Cannot take one more article about this Grifter/Liar said...

Does she know a 5 K is not 5 miles? She is not a bright person.

Why no Marathon or mini marathon in Philadelphia? Reading? Lancaster? Wernersville? No roads or streets in Pennsylvania?

Does it have to be 1500 miles away from her children? It will require prep of a week plus the week the run occurs (probably won't occur) and has no Charity involved. No Charity!

What about the Military Families? I thought CC was interested in the Military Families or is this another lie from Kate? It was on one of her blogs.

The real world? Kate, people are working and living barely above a poverty level all across this country. The working poor. Have you read about the world we now live in?2 & 3 part time jobs to pay for medical insurance? People who have sick kids, very sick children, losing their homes putting everything into being with their children and trying to keep their jobs? My God but this woman is so selfish.

Can I say one more thing? Steve's involvement and continued involvement with Kate has probably caused him a Bodyguard status. Who wants a Bodyguard that everyone associates with a has been housewife who had 8 kids whom no one is interested in putting on TV any longer and is known as a lying grifter. He also rides along first class with her, picks out the size of her false boobies, takes the photos for posting?

Enough. Now it is too much. Anyone who gives her $45 or you get the $5 off with a CC coupon. B.S....

Another example of how do I get away from these kids for a week or more? Start running away from them.

Those twins will be the permanent nannies and will never have a childhood and that is okay with Kate. She is that selfish. She will become so jealous of their young beauty as the grow into younger women because we know that Kate does not get along with other women, even her own daughters.It will blow up with the twins.

Too much. You want a job? You want $$ Kate, get a real job and stop paying for attention.

Give time to your children and let them have their "special moments and let them develop their talents that you squash" Those little boys need so much as well as the other children.

I did not think Kate Gosselin could get sadder but she does it, hitting the streets. May as well take a pair of your hooker shoes along and stroll with one of those mini skirts too. Maybe that is what Steve is doing Pimping You Out and he has you there now On The Street.

So Coupon Cabin is taking it to the streets?

I don't see how the kids could partiicipate with Kate in something like this so far away. She certainly isn't going to foot the bill for airfare and expenses for them for a mini marathon in Chicago.

I can see CC paying - it would be a (sad) draw and big publicity for the company.

Coupon Cabin has a company airplane. They could satisfy the kid's NEED to fly away to Chigago, run for a half hour, then go to the beach for a few days on Lake Michigan. Oh the fun, Ohh the cost!

Summerwind said...

The only thing that would make this better is if that stupid trust fund baby chick from the cruise were organizing this whole thing.

======

That's the very first thing I thought of when I heard about this. Pay first, questions will be answered later. Who does that? This is the cruise all over again! I guess some never learn. What I want to know is if CJ is vetting again, and if CC will be sharing e-mail addresses and last names. How long before they will be using the twins (or all of the children) as bait? "Stand on the sidelines and watch Kate and her children run gleefully by, sweat-free, hand in hand, into the Chicago humidity."


"I'm sorry, but Gypsi from Twitter is a total dumbass. How many times do you get burned before you get it?"

I figured that out some time ago. There's something not right there upstairs...not the sharpest tool in the shed.

Vanessa said...

I think we all know why she doesn't participate in any local marathons-she's despised in her hometown. Or, as some local posters have said, nobody give a rat's ass about her. She still thinks it's her glory days of book signings and
fans screeching at her at airports etc..how many times is she going to try these little endeavors (sp?)and realize that it's not just the locals that don't give a rat's ass, it's everyone?

And there are a lot of celebrities I like, but I can't name a single one I'd fly across the country for to run in a 5K with them.

That's just weird.

We're talking about sheeple here. They live in a whole different barnyard. "Normal" people wouldn't do it, but this is an entirely different breed of people. Anything goes. No logic involved.

Gift of grab said...

You know, if Kate has some sort of a "professional" relationship with RnR, why wouldn't they feature her front and center on their site? I am so puzzled by how this all fits together. CC is not listed on their site as an event sponsor, so whatever the connection there is, it's pretty tenuous.

jl dent said...

I live in Chicago and if she thinks she'll bring the kids and do the beach here shes in for a surprise our beaches get very crowded, theres volleyball games going on each weekend and alot of other stuff. It will be too overwelming for her she'll do a freak out, even the museum get crowded and walking down Michigan ave, if she wants to be notice forget it. JL Howard

Speaking of this sheeple. She's tweeting to Kate that she's on a road trip with the family and is making stops along the way. I'm not sure what she means in the above tweet, but it sounds like either she or someone in the car left without shoes and has to buy some at Walmart. Yeah, okay, no shoes. It makes sense to me.

Isn't she the one who tweeted "who cares if Kate got speeding tickets?"

Anonymous said...

Instead of "cruise with Kate Gosselin" now it's "run with Kate Gosselin and kids"?!? This Mother of 8, count them 8, has no talent for TV, blogging, or even being a Mother/wife. Why does Couponcabin promote this or is it "Cindy"???????

I live in Chicago and if she thinks to bring the kids to Chicago and do the beaches shes in for a surprise our beaches get very crowded, don't think she'll be able to handle being with the crowd, don't think she'll get any special treatment there, and watch out if you don't want sand on your stuff same as museums she can take a bus or boat tour but no one will care cause most of the speakers that do the tour are probably people that didn't watch or know who she is. Maybe she'll try to get in to sing the 7th inning stretch at wrigley if cubs are playing lol they seem to let anyone sing

Cindy is the one who was hawking the morning jogs with Kate on the cruise. Maybe she has the logistics all figured out. They should ask her to help plan this run! :)

Ok, the whole CC thing sounds like a scam. If you are registering with CC, how does anyone know if CC will actually go to the Offical race site and register these fans/people? I hope thse fans/people who sign up understand that CC is not the Offical race site. I read their rules and you have to go to their offical site to register and I saw nothing about a discount for the mini there, unless there was one? Or will someone at CC forget to register these people and Kate keeps the money. Who is getting the $5 off? Kate getting the $5 or CC for the cost of the t-shirt. I read what you get at the Offical race site, and you get a race top, bag, and some other stuff. Why go through CC to register, what for $5 off? If people had registered before 6/1 it was $35? Kate must have registered just recently, for it to be $45.

Amy2 said...

Remember when Kate went to Los Angeles and appeared at an outside mall and posed with fans. She stepped off the small (6"?) riser and Steve had to tell her to get back up there and pose with the fans. Kate made it clear she didn't want to. She did not want to interact with her fans one minute longer than she had too. (This was when she wore the silver dress).

How is Kate to deal with her fans (all 8 of them) while running with them? As mentioned above runners have their own pace. Is Kate going to set the pace and leave the slower one's in her dust? What about the out-of-shape runner who just wants to be with Kate? What will she do when that runner starts to fade or worse yet has a medical problem? Since CC is sponsoring the Run with Kate event who is legally responsible for the runner who falls ill because they couldn't keep pace? Will the (fan) runners sign agreements absolving CC with legal responsbility? Will CC have Run with Kate t-shirts as sponsored by CC. That is just tacky. Has CC even thought this through?

And just like the cruise, are the fan runners out their expenses (airfare, hotels, entrance fees, etc.) because Kate backs out? I do realize that cruisers did receive refunds but with the run they are on their own.

I'm a non-runner though am a great wing-man to a half/full marathon runner. Runners take their sport seriously. IMO CC doesn't. Just an opportunity to show case Kate, a mediocre runner.

aggiemom09121416 said...

With every failed attempt to lure fans, Kate's world gets smaller.
The show was canceled, her books bombed, her talk show dreams dashed, her twisted kate show never materialized, her clothing line, cookbook deal never came to fruition, her cruise canceled due to lack of interest..her super mom/christian mom/super wife/ image shot down by her own doing..

What she needs to do is set up a store front in Wernerville. Within this store, install bullet proof glass down the middle of the business, floor to ceiling.
Install a functioning kitchen, tanning booth, exercise room, arts and crafts room (don't forget the label maker!)mani/pedi/salon.
Install Kate on the working side of the glass, and have one of her fans charge admission to the viewing area.
They could do weekly specials, ya know, one day they could watch her make icing, organic pizza, watch her chop lettuce; watch her run on her treadmill, that sort of thing. She could even demonstrate how to text without blowing up your tenth pink iphone. The possibilities are endless! (not to mention the low overhead).

Kate makes money doing what she loves, her fans can gawk at her, watch her by 30 minute paid intervals, and since there isn't audio, she doesn't have to chat up her paying fans.

Kate gets to do what she likes, she has her adoring fans watching her from a safe proximity, and there is no conversation needed.

She could do so much in that room..why, she could sign books, clip coupons, rummage through boxes of clothes,research recipes,look for hidden gift cards, show people how to clap their hands and flap their arms....

Can't believe I forgot watching Kate how to make coffee in her kuerig AND a french press, how to spritz one calorie dressing on her yummy salad..they could watch her make her omelets. ya know the one she is 'famous for'.
She could make 100 dozen cookies, 500 mini sweet bread loaves,...
(and the book signing, I should have clarified that the books are the ones received in the mail..they could watch her sign them and slip them into their enclosed, stamped envelope!

maybe in front of her store they could make it a no parking/fire lane so the fans could experience what it's like to be Kate.

(I think I'm on to something here)

OrangeCrush said...

Given that the cruise costs were in the 1,000 of $, no surprise it bombed out. It will be interesting to see how many sheeple sign up for the lower cost Chicago mini-run, where for mere 100's of dollars they can get close to their crush for a photo op at 6 am, run or not run, and hey, get a tee- shirt too. 5 sheeple? 6?

anger issues kare said...

Ok, I went to CC and there is one comment, a fan who must have been living in a cave. They said they wish they could go to Chocago, but can't and want Kate to run in California. Hey stupid, Kate was just there. Stupid sheeple.

I followed the CC to offical race site, and it says there they don't take any discount coupons, I made it as far as the screen right before the check-out, without putting any info, so if the check-out screen has the place to put the coupon code, I can't get into that screen.

But to have CC contact you for what, is Kate doing a M&G, photo op, a luncheon? What, an autograph t-shirt? Hardly worth the $5 off?

If people thought 3 miles was such a big deal it would have been sold out a while ago, when registion fee was so much cheaper. I don't think Kate is gonna get many, takers. There is only one comment at CC, for that announcement blog, so far.

PatK said...

AggieMom -- you might just have a good idea. But, do you have the time to rent the venue, get the props, promote the events and handcuff Kate? You would have to do all the work, wouldn't you?

PatK -- my pages look same/normal.

Kate is a twit said...

anger issues--you don't register through CC. You have to go to the RnR website to register-the link that CC provided for registration takes you directly to the RnR website.

I don't understand what you mean about who is getting the $5 off. Whoever registers using the CC code gets a $5 discount on the registration fee.

In my opinion, CC is using this as an advertising promotion. They will cover the cost of the $5 discount, the t-shirts, and probably all of Kate's expenses. Maybe they are also using this to find out just how much of a fan base Kate actually has

What is strange though is that CC isn't promoting it on their twitter.

Jumping In said...

Another thing.....I ran for years, mostly 10K's and a few half-marathons. Many of my friends became hard-core marathoners and travelled all over the world often planning holidays around their races. I am speaking from personal experience here, but I do not recall any of my friends traveling far away to run a half-marathon once they committed to training and running fulls. I do not know why Kate did not run a full marathon in San Diego, and agreeing to run a 5K in Chicago makes even less sense. She is like the hobby-farmer of running.

This 5K CC thing is just the last grasp at anything to keep her relevant, and another failed "event" in the making. I think I will write the announcement from Coupon Cabin to save them the trouble.

"We regret to announce that our favorite Coupon Cabin blogger Kate Gosselin must cancel her appearance at the Chicago Mini-Marathon on July 22nd. There were just not the numbers to make it worthwhile for Kate. She sends her best wishes and says "happy running" to all who wanted to run with her. There are discussions in the works, and Kate may fly in the night before to share a carb-loading dinner and wish everyone good-luck in person. Stay tuned for details!"

That was probably the only comment they could post that wasn't vile. I could imagine the response they're getting (all negative)....This IS like the cruise all over again. This chic just doesn't get it...

There's no way Jon would let Kate put the children on public display in Chicago...first, they are no longer under contract, only Kate is, second it must be a work-related thing because she is getting paid and having her expenses comped, right? There's no REASON at all for the children to trot along with Kate on a work trip when it has nothing to do with them (no official adversitement of them attending, only Kate so far). That is not how they should be used to satisfty Kate's fans' needs! I hope he will fight her on this one.

aggiemom09121416 said...

Dmasy,

I meant that Kate would pursue this as a full time job..
Her overhead would be low, herself and one greeter at the door.
Steve wouldn't be needed due to the safety glass.
She could work school hours, weekends off.

Dang, she could clean the refrigerator and the oven door, she could organize paper plates,..possibilities are endless.
lololol
customers could watch Kate write on her menu board, etc, that sort of thing.
She'd make money, and it would be all hers.lol

Ya know, what's next if the min run doesn't work out? take a trip to Target with Kate? haha, the cost would be you had to buy her paper plates, lol.

Sherri O said...

I've been running for several years now...I'm not at the half-marathon point yet, due to some nagging injuries, but that's neither here nor there.

I just completed a big run (over 9,000 people) last weekend in my hometown. It was a combination of 5k, 10k, and Half-Marathon.

Speaking from my own experience, it's every runner's WORST nightmare to come across a "pack" - or a "group" of runners. Packs and groups of runners/friends block up the roadway and make it very difficult to pass them. They can be dangerous, as well, if they are talking, laughing, or - gasp - singing -as they run. (Yes, it happens). When they get to doing this, they cannot hear other runners coming up behind them, saying, "Passing to the left").

I don't know who thought this "Run with Kate" out - but they are NOT a runner...if there turns out to be a big pack or group around Kate, it's going to piss off a lot of serious runners (and yes, serious runners run 5k's).

Not to mention...as someone else pointed out...how do they keep everyone together? Is that their intent? To run as a pack/group with Kate? Because everyone has different paces - and unless they intend Kate to WALK the entire time, there is NO WAY her group/pack will stay together. It already sounds from Kate's tweet last night that she intends to blow everyone off by running it in 25 minutes. Screw the slow fans left behind.

This entire STUNT - and that's what it is - a STUNT - is laughable, if it weren't inherently a bit dangerous. Trust me - its being done for PURE publicity. There's no money going into Kate's hands on this; but she will get a free "business" trip to Chicago. Coupon Cabin is hoping to gather publicity on TV, internet and news media by doing this STUNT.

There's a good reason that the word "stunt" begins with "st" - because they're STUPID.

It's top of the morning where I am and I just woke up to this hysterical news. After some baw-hahahahhahas for a few minutes, I dissolved into quiet embarrassment for her. Has she learned NOTHING from the cruise? Does she know NOTHING about her fans' demographic? Hint, most of them are not athletic.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Lol, she knows. But this latest stunt makes her LOOK like she cares. Makes her LOOK like she's fan friendly. Makes her LOOK like she's accessable. And she is- for a price and in a very controlled situation where she calls the shots.

From the beginning of her contrived fame, by her own admission she said she hated the fans. Buy her books, watch the show, stand in line for a $20 picture (cash only) with a scribble on it- but do not EVER address Kate in public or gaze at her directly. Any interaction with the Qween involves a fee. Until her PR told her that it was bad for business to hate the fans who put her in her mansion.

Twatter allows her to pretend to love her fans, but every time they ask her to prove it without costing them an arm and a leg, she slithers out of it. Apparently this SD fiasco was the last straw for her. Kudos to the sheeple who called her out for trying to ignore Hispanic Elvis and Mr SD. Now, if you are wanting to meet up with Kate in whatever state she is disgracing with her next running-for-profit stunt, you are going to do it on Kate's terms.

For the people who have wondered why Kate wont run locally, I believe it has to do with the fact that the citizens of PA can't stand her. When she goes to LV or SD or another far away locale 2,000 mi. away, she is just that mean bitchy mother of 8 from that show that was canceled. People don't think much of her either way. When she is in PA, she is that mean bitchy mother of 8 who relentlessly begged for donations, while being supported by a wealthy father in law, while siphoning obscene amounts of money from Medicaid and public assistance, who told several large newspapers that society is obligated to support her children, who hit it big on a reality show and then proceeded to selfishly not do one damn thing to give back to the community (or anyone else for that matter). She is despised here. She might be able to turn on the charm in Topeka, but not here. And she knows it. Word has it that people often shouted derogatory comments while she and the kids were filming in public locally. Explaining why she became frantic around crowds and why she always wanted the venue where they were shooting to be shut down and closed off or better yet- just out of the state completely. She might shock us all and run in some local event, but I think she knows it probably wouldn't be pleasant. Plus, I think 80% of this running thing is an excuse to get as far, far away from the kids as possible.

About this silly race - whatever. It's a tiny bit less pathetic than pole dancing. If she puts her children on display during the race or the promos for it, then she will get no slack from me at all.

First it was "Cruise with Kate", now it's "Run with Kate". But does it mean that her fans will actually be "with" Kate? Kate will be at the run, just like she was going to be on the cruise. She will be there, but nowhere does it state that she will interact with her fans, it just states that you can run in the same race that Kate is running.

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

I just had a flashback to Kate at St Jude's Hospital, stomping her high heals down the halls, leading the pack with her nose very literally up in the air with a disdainful attitude towards staff, patients and families. Handing out her book as if her mere presence was a healing force. Cackling and scowling at the same time, looking at someone off camera for validation on how wonderful she was.

It will be the same with this marathon; competitive with everyone, superior, she MUST be first, she'll be loud, cackling, dismissive, arrogant and wont take her eyes off Steve. And then she will disappear as soon as she crosses the finish line.

I live in Chicago, I agree it's warm and humid here in July. Even with that said, most races here are sold out events, we don't need Kate to come here.
I also find it weird, well not really because it's Kate, but most people travel to do a full marathon, not a half. My husband is a runner and has many friends that our runners and they travel to do fulls, but stay home or within driving distances to do half marathon.
UGH, stay away from Chicago. Stay home with your kids or take them somewhere, you don't need another excuse to leave them.

Yes please Kate stay in PA I live in Chicago to and I would not like if you came here.

But if you do and I'm still here for the summer I'll find away to snap a pic of you & lover boy.

@69...I doubt the comments on only annoying. I have a felling they are down right disgusting. People are really getting tired of this grifter. All recent comments from articles have been pretty brutal. They must be aware of how hated she is by the general public. Your always going to have a few nuts that will excuse anything she does. All of America is "on to her". It is fun to watch her grasp for straws though....

Gift of grab said...

Wayward, another great post. BTW, Hispanic Elvis IS Mr. San Diego (MSD).

Tomatoes, we have only been speculating about Kate involving her kids in this run. It was only after a month of promotion for the cruise (and quite a shitload of TV/print publicity for it) that it was realized that she wasn't going to get enough interest on her own, and that was when she publicly confirmed (after hinting about it) that the twins would be accompanying her. Perhaps she thought that would bring an onslaught of interest. Apparently not. All we're saying is, we don't doubt that she'll be ready to pull in one or all of her 8 if this latest publicity stunt doesn't get the level of interest she seems to expect.

"Delusional" doesn't even touch her current mental state. She might as well be on a different planet.

Maybe Kate & company will be running as "Team Coupon Cabin". You regiser through CC and they forward everything to R&R. Are there different rates if you're running as a "team"?

CC may even have paid for her SD 1/2 marathon just to get her face out there as a real runner since the LV full marathon was riddled with controversey. If Kate and all her runners wear a CC tee shirt they are advertising for CC.

chefsummer said...

The run makes no sense unless she has fans in Chicago area so think about it the fans would've to.

1.Fly to Chicago for where they live-(plane tickets)
2. Hotel room for a few days.
3. Meals for days.
4. Transportation for days.
5. Pay for the marathon reg & shirts

So in the end it's still going to cost more than it's worth and for what a 2-3 hour marathon?

Glad to know I didn't offend you by rejoicing in her fall from grace, or suggestions for seeking new employment.

readerlady said...

I took a bit of a break from the blog and come back to find that KK is doing a 5K run in Chicago? In July? She's nuts! Travel all that way just to run 3.1 miles? What a scam! That led me to mentally tally her trip schedule for the past year. She's been out of work since August, except for that mediocre coupon blog thing. Since then she's been on the following trips:

Wyoming
Chicago
Las Vegas (X3)
Los Angeles
Australia
Springfield, Missouri
San Diego
Florida (?) Not sure about this one. Was that dress grifting trip before or after she lost the show?
NYC -- How many times?
Another trip to Chicago is scheduled for next month.

Did I forget any? If this is how the unemployed live, sign me up!!

Debbie Downer, Dwindle and aggiemom -- Great posts. ITA with every word y'all wrote. And pulling in from the previous post -- I grew up in S. Ohio and saying "y'all". I still say it, and get teased for it. I've heard "youins" from some Ohioans. I've also heard a few "youse guys" in my time, LOL.

What is AGT and who is Andrew?

I'm getting a centered format too. I mostly use IE, but I checked it with Firefox and it's centered there, too. I sort of like it, once I got used to it. Seems to be a bit easier to follow.

fidosmommy said...

Dmasy, I know your area very well. I lived there for many years. Corn and soybeans everywhere, and cops hiding in little notches of cornfields along the roads.



My screen shows everything centered too.

Dmasy said...

I am Google Chrome and the text looks just like every other day.

MidWest humidity is a killer. I have been in states with much higher temps and it is a dry heat. Makes a big difference. Humidity is probably why the run is scheduled so early in the morning.

I have commitments that weekend or I would be tempted to try and capture some candid photos of Kate for this blog. Someone needs to solve the "mystery" of Kate and Steve.

She seems to escape the consequences of all her bad decisions. One of the reasons I continue to read here is to be around for the day when real life and Kate Gosselin meet.

She's Outta Luck! said...

AGT is America's Got Talent.

Andrew is an amzing singer with a...unique look and a wonderful story. Don't let those dark colours fool you, he is full of light.

Google his try out, it has a Susan Boyle feeling to it.

I have not been this impressed with someone in a long time.

I'm still unsure as to how we vote

Fidosmommy -- it is a beautiful place to live. We do plan to retire to Texas. But, for now life is where the corn grows "knee high by the 4th of July".

Actually there is nothing disrespectful about the word spawn. It's defined as a swarming brood; numerous progeny. Kate HAS relied on her numerous progeny to get attention, fame and $$. The word spawn is not offensive. Kate is.

Readerlady: NO! that is not how us unemploy live. Money is tight, there are no trips, only local and not too far for those. There are no , festivals, maybe movie, There are no trips. Which means Kate does have money to boot. She has been lying all along. If I had the money she has, I would be going to Arizonia for a cousins wedding, I can't don't have the money to. So anytime from now into the future, Kate hollers poor, I would like to smack her one, cause she is nothing but a liar, fraud, And hides behind her kids, and uses them as an excuse and gives, the real people who are unemployed a bad name.

If Kate's going to bring the kids with her to Chicago for the marathon-(if it happens).

She can give the kids the beach vacation that they want per-say we have a beautiful lake shore beach.

Or she can take them to navy pier get on rides see firework fun house a boat ride and get some good Chicago food.

But she won't.

NO! Please take her and give us a break!

I'm wondering how long it will be before they pull a cruise thing and charge the sheeple an extra fee to spend a minute with her. They could issue passes (after CJ has vetted, of course), rope off an area, and if you paid your $200, you could have a meet and greet. For another $200, Steve will take your photo. Of course all of this must be paid in advance, and the details will be sent to you in an e-mail or on Twitter, and if you're really lucky, all of your personal information will be available for internet consumption.

Auntie, thank you for clearing up the spawn definition.

Anger, there's a big difference in people who are unemployed despite being excellent employees and those who push the limits with their nasty selves and deserve it.

PJ's momma said...

Thinking back, I wonder if Rock-n-Roll changed Chicago to a half only experience because a few years ago, they had to shut down the course because of the high heat index. My friend had already run 16 (slow) miles when she was rounded up and told they were done. Maybe they switched to half only after that. I looked on their site, the price is $45 to register for all participants for the mini, so Kate is not making any money, not off registration anyway.

I deleted my post about the reg fees for the race in Chicago. I guess I was looking at the wrong race. Sorry bout that. She must be getting a kickback from RR for all of this. i just can't see her doing this for nada.

Kokomo, Cocktails and Dreams said...

Regarding the word "spawn." It's a good word and applicable, but it also could have a negative connotation because it is frequently used as "spawn of satan" or "spawn of the devil." Some may remember the movie, "Spawn," with Martin Sheen. Perhaps that is why it would be offensive to some.

Kate has zero history of christian charity, so what's in it for her? Perhaps an all expense paid trip to Chicago on CC's dime? There has to be something in it for her, or she wouldn't be going along with it.

I hope she never comes to TX. blech

Anonymous said...

first there was “cruise with Kate”; now there’s “run with Kate with/without her 8″…….Can’t this woman get a job without using her kids!?!? What other woman would use their kids to get a job to stay in the lime light?!?! Come on Kate you’re 15 minutes are up; confess all your lies; your house is paid off, you’re dating “bodyguard” and you have implants?

aggiemom09121416 said...

Re the spawn comments....

I thought the initial post concerning the spawn comment was pretty funny..if read with the poster's inference and intent.
Kate sees her kids are dollar signs and a way to further her own personal happiness.
If Admin had been offended by the intent of the post, it wouldn't have gone through. It isn't up to fellow posters to admonish one another.
just my opinion, of course.
be gentle with new posters!!
:)

Now, where's Kate been today? 'attacking' the day? going to Target for paper products? planting those imaginary seedlings in her organic garden? or sleeping all day while the twins watch the little kids??

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

I don't see how Kate can be getting a kickback because the registration fee is $45 for everyone. If people apply the CC $5 off coupon, what, are Kate and CC going to split it -- $2.50 each for each CC signup? Has CC misread Kate's demographics too? I can't figure out what's going on.

I haven't come across any tweets from fans saying they're going. I've seen several mentioning what physical problems they have that will keep them away though.

Spending hundred$ for airfare to run 3 miles with Kate is ludicrous.

Kokomo, Cocktails and Dreams said...

Has Milo shown any interest in attending this run? I just think it's strange that she's had chances to see Kate live (as opposed to dead), but that she always seems to have an excuse. She didn't commit to the cruise, even though she says she lives in the deep south and it wouldn't have been so far that she couldn't have taken a ship out of Ft. Lauderdale. You'd think that someone who is bonkers nuts over another woman would fulfill a lifelong dream to reach out and touch that person in the flesh.

Kate is a Witch said...

What she's getting out of it is a trip to Chicago to get away from her kids, that's what she's getting. And attention, which is what she lives for. There's no way she's making money off the CC running thing. But I promise she got them to agree to fly her and her babysitter out and paid for her hotel room(s) and meals. That's about all she can get these days and even that will go away.

As for where she lives, I say we find a cave on an island off Mars and sling-shot her there.

Would that be good by everyone?

And I agree with you about Andrew DeLeon. His voice was beautiful and unexpected.

Isn't the CC headquarters in a Chicago suburb? It's in NW Indiana anyway, very near Chicago. So this may be a business meeting at CC with a 5K thrown in for fun.

She's Outta Luck! said...

Thanks for the info about Andrew, it will be put to good use.

It's nice to be unepectedly delighted with someone, probably because it's so rare.

I was unaware of the devil reference to the word spawn. I used it because I see this woman as not giving a hoot about her children as individuals. They are her personal property, and the word seemed appropriate. No offense to those HERE was intented, and I could care less about offending her. In the same vein, I enjoy not calling HER by name. It's a subtle jab, but lessens her importance as an individual.

Thanks for the info on Andrew De Leon, Outta Luck!. I watched the Youtube video of his audition. WOW! What a voice! And that was a female aria he was singing. A SOPRANO female aria, at that. Very unusual for a grown male to be able to pull that off without sounding screechy or fake. Hope he does well on the show. I haven't watched it for several years, but I may just start watching if he makes it into the finals.

Anger Issues -- I didn't mean to push a hot button. Sorry. I know real people are struggling, unemployed or not. We retirees are struggling, too. Some months it's do I fix the car or buy my meds. It burns me up to hear KK whining about not being able to pay her bills, or afford this or that for the kids, then see the extravagant lifestyle she leads. She's taken more trips this past year than I have in my adult lifetime, unless you count day/overnight trips within the state I live in. She hasn't earned it, doesn't deserve it, and shows no gratitude for her amazing luck.

My BIL ran the Chicago marathon the year with the terrible heat and humidity. It was awful! I can't image what it would be like to be a newbie runner, like many of Kate's fans are, and try to run this 5K during this time of year. I really don't have confidence in the Rock N Roll people to put on a safe race after what happened in LV with the crowds and the water problems.

However, if I was a runner, and I'm not because of my plantar fasciitis, I would run this 5K.

You guys who live in Illinois where near Chicago or suburbs? I live in the city.

Chicago is my hometown. The summers are hot and very humid, but it does cool off in evenings--especially along the lake (which Grant Park is). Six-thirty in the
morning should be tolerable. The hottest hours are from 10am through 2 pm.

Anger-I am originally from the south side of Chicago. As a young adult, I lived in the Lincoln Park are, the East Rogers Park and Wilmette as marrieds with children. I love the sand beaches and swimming in Lake Michigan. I am still a diehard Cubs fan (oops-hope your not a WS fan...would have to stop talking to you!) My nephew, who is a diehard W'S fan said that it isn't enough if the WS are winning--in order to be happy, the Cubs have to be losing! Kind of sums up Chicagoans, doesn't it?

Aggiemom: Besides getting hotel etc paid for, I think Kate will come in a couple of days early to be on some of the morning local shows. Like: Fox news, wgn news, wls news, Windy City Live. Like when she got the job with CC, she was on either Fox or wgn. I would not be surprised if she showed up on one of them. I would not be surprised if the twins get mentioned at the last min, to be there.

Could someone explain to me just what Coupon Cabin is? I don't want to go to there site. From the name I assumed it was a place to go to get Coupons on all kinds of different things.

Fidomommy: CC is in Whiting, IN, that is not a Chicago suburb. It's in another state. CC use to be in Chicago, but it got too expensive for rent and taxes, so they moved into IN. I know they say CC is in Chicago, but it is not. It's like calling Kate a single mother of 8, when infact Kate is a divorce mother of 8. In order for Kate to be a single mother of 8, she would have not been married to Jon the kids father. So when Kate refers to herself as a single mother of 8 she is wrong, just like Whiting, IN is not a suburb of Chicago. I always laugh when I hear both. LOLOLOL

Kate is a twit said...

The way I understand it, CC has nothing to do with the mini marathon, except to promote Kate running it and offering a $5 off coupon. This is not a special event just for Kate and her fans. RnR is the official organization that runs it. Several of their other stops also include mini marathons. They are not promoting it as an official 5K. I take it as a fun run for those that want to experience what an RnR event is like. The description from the Rock N Roll website says:

Get a taste of what the XSport Fitness Rock ‘n’ Roll Chicago Half Marathon is all about. Feel the excitement of 13.1 miles in a mini marathon distance (approximately 3 miles.) Experience the thrill of live bands and cheer teams on the course and a rockin’ Finish Line Festival. Check out the Mini course!

Kate will probably run with her fans the same way she ran with her kids on the beach. Leave 'em in the dust so she can best her time. Can't you see her man-body now running like a maniac? Such a tool.

Gift of grab said...

I don't think CC or Kate will make money off this, but the cross-promotion with RnR, which does have a lot of national recognition among runners, is likely a plus for CC. And I don't think RnR much cares as long as they get their fees.

I agree that Kate will do this for the exposure, CC will probably get her on a local morning news show, at least. Although does anyone remember the spot she did in November, right after she was hired and those pix of her "at the office" were posted? Her make-up looked drag-queenish, and she looked and sounded drugged/half-asleep. She barely mentioned CC. Of course from there, she and Steve-O got on the plane for AUS.

The Insider has an interview with her posted, looks like it was done in SD in a hotel room. She is holding tight to "It's the kids who want to be back on TV" storyline. She is, again, so inarticulate it's tough to listen to her. She doesn't really talk about the marathon at all, talked a bit about her long-time love of kew-poning (uh-huh), "peace" with Jon, and how she doesn't understand why people think the TV experience was negative for her kids (no, we KNOW you don't get it, Katie). All in all, a whole lotta nothing. Although she presents much better in a controlled interview environment than a live one. Not saying much, I know.

Since I don't watch this program on TV, does anyone know if it was aired? Or is this just an online thing?

My God gives us strength and keep us from laughing too loud when Kate and Steve walk down Michigan Ave., Kate is her jogging shorts and Steve with his I.D. badge and no one else is around. Kate's fans would be walkers, possibly fast walkers (like her in Vegas) but no one does anyone in their right minds get involved in something that will not work out. No way. I agree a Charity is a reason to run in July for a little over 3 miles, not 5 K = 5 miles. Steve, your brain must be sizzling as your career is also down the tubes and she pulled you down there with her. Guess you don't know anything about manager either. You didn't get the Memo that everyone else got? Kate is Poison, stay away and the fans are no more.

Should have a Sheep Run, then all those people who have no idol except Katie Kreider Gosselin to pick their pockets. Hey, look she is doing that now.

The kids are kids and what they do at 8 can't really be measured at this point. One of the twins seems to want to be in front of the TV with Kate, but not the other one, the shy one who avoids the camera.

What a world when a computerized society can keep this low life woman in the headlines of our lives. Can you imagine if we didn't have this? She would be feeding the pigs on a farm in Lancaster because she still ain't too bright (not saying farmers or those who feed animals are not bright) but this woman Gosselin isn't fit to feed the animals.

PS I like the new format.

TLC stinks said...

I was not offended by the poster's use of spawn which, unless you are referring to a certain movie or spawn of Satan, means offspring or brood. It was funny actually as Kate, IMO, is not Satan but but she is certainly no better than than a fish who spawns because they spew out eggs then abandon their offspring.

Anyway, this mini marathon with her few sheeple is dumb. My, how the mighty have fallen! Can't wait until this time next year. I seriously doubt she'll still be with CC. They will cut her loose and use some other gimmick to promote the site. They should replace Kate with one of those ultimate couponers who would be a legitimate spokesperson. Just because Kate used to screech about coupons was no reason to hire her.

Kokomo, Cocktails and Dreams said...

I do not find the word "spawn" offensive. One's offspring is/are spawn. The devil connotation has nothing to do with it.

Geez.

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

Geez, what? Someone was offended by the use of the word, Auntie Ann said that the word was applicable, and I simply pointed out that it's a good word, but there is a negative connotation to the word, which is a fact.

This has been associated with Satan's Spawn or Spawn of the Devil which is why some may be of the opinion when used in reference to the Gosselin children it might not be appropriate. It doesn't bother me, but I am aware that there is negativity sometimes associated with the word. If you've seen the movie, "Spawn," you could easily see why.

yourself for once! You should take care of them they actually like you!

It was the sanctimonious affectation of "Could you tone it down please?" that bothered me. I should have said so in the first place.

Peace.

This os off topic a little bit,but I just saw a new show advertised to start june 26 or 22 on TLC and the host is Tori Spelling. It's called Craft Wars. Now it's very telling how TLC did not want their crafty,organized,thrifty Kate to be the host. I'll bet she's livid about that one.

It's a start in Britain. Hopefully, the US will follow suit:

KATE: "I don't believe I ever, um, bought into the whole...I enjoy the whole TV thing, I enjoy doing the work, but again, my financial head says, I mean, 'whatever job is working...'"

The woman has no shame. So many failures and she still puts herself out there to be ridiculed and laughed at. Pitiful.

Kate's boobs look like a package of Hostess SnoBalls strapped to her chest in that video (where they are walking). LOL!
