Kate posts up-close photo of Mady's legs

The up close and personal picture of Mady trying on Kate's heels sparked outrage from the moment Kate put it on her Twitter account, and now the poor child is getting attention for it on Radaronline and The Daily Mail.

The New York Times explored the issue of posting children's photos online in this revealing article from 2009. A must read.

Popular Mommy blogger Eve Vawter also wrote an excellent article about the issue on Mommyish.com, quoted in part here. We like her common sense:


"Kids try on their mom’s shoes. This happens every hour of every day in every house with kids. I did it, you did it, our kids have done it. There is nothing wrong with that. But posting a picture on the internet, of your 11-year-old’s bare legs, her toenails pedicured and painted, clad in peep-toe satin and glitter heels, it’s just plain creepy. Kate Gosselin doesn’t know every single one of her Twitter followers personally. She doesn’t know who is glancing at the photograph and saying “Cute, my kids did that” or who is uploading the photograph to some terrible child exploitation website. And by posting this picture, she is inadvertently sexualizing her 11-year-old kid.

It can be argued that child sex abusers can find any photograph of a kid “sexy.” That even the most innocent picture of a kid fully dressed and standing there can be exploited by child predators for nefarious purposes. And all though I agree there is nothing wrong with a kid trying on her mom’s high heels, looking at the picture of Mady it’s obvious to me that posting it on the internet was a bad idea. It isn’t a picture of a kid being silly and playing dress-up, it looks like a slightly menacing sexualized photograph of a girl standing, her legs apart, teetering helplessly on too-big heels in a darkened room. And Kate Gosselin didn’t need to post it, but I suppose it can also be argued that Kate Gosselin uses any excuse to exploit any of her eight children for attention and publicity, whether good or bad, to feed her gaping maw of a fame hole."

I think the sheeple are missing the fact that I think a great many of us would say something if we saw anyone post a pic like that of their daughter. It's not just Kate.

chefsummer said...

Why not post her own legs instead of her 12yr?

Why not let the creeps and freaks fawn over her own legs?

Dmasy said...

Sue Buddy, I can almost see you gritting your teeth as you typed. I feel your anger and frustration. Excellent article. Thank you.

LaLaLandNoMore said...

Right, Admin, it is not just Kate. What kind of mother does this? Well, I guess we can answer that question fairly easily. Desperate for attention and quite delusional. So inappropriate like other things we've witnessed in the past from Kate. I'm a "non-believer", not a "hater".

anger issues kate said...

Something is up at twitter, with Kates twitter. I can't get into twitter, either on twazzup Kateplumy8 or Kate twitter direct, or the feed here is not coming up either. Maybe Kate got hacked, hope it is not a virus or is twitter having issues today? Or did twitter get hacked? Anyone else not getting in?

Sue Buddy said...

Admin, hope you don't mind me putting up a link to my article here as well:

Kate Gosselin Has Gone Too Far

LaLaLandNoMore said...

Sue Buddy, enjoyed your article. I'm on board as a "non-believer."

DebbieDowner4 said...

I was going to make a break from Grifty. She is so boring, nothing is happening, (I briefly heard about some fashion show).

Even checking in on 15 started to dwindle.

Holy Moley, this woman is nuts. That pic is a pedo's dream. What kind of woman does that to her own child? Oh, yeah, Grifty.

Absolutely DISGUSTING.

Quick poll: Worst mother of all time:

~Kate G
~Dina Lohan
~Kris Jenner (still beyond pissed at NBC for having her talk about her new boobs on 8:46 am on 9-11 rather than a moment of silence.

I'm done......those 3 make me sick. There was a comedian years ago, forgive me for not knowing the name, who said that an event was bittersweet; "like watching your mother in law drive off a cliff in your new BMW"

I would gladly supply the BMW for these 3 clowns.

Sue Buddy said...

Dmasy,oh no! You can see me. Honestly...my hair isn't always in a pony tail! LOL

Yes, I was seething there for a while, especially ROL's "pedophile" tag. Who wants their child to have that kind of tag connected with them?

anger issues, I can see Twitter ok.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I firmly believe if I saw a friend doing this on facebook or whatever i would give them a phone call and try to have a tactful conversation with them. I think most of you ladies would do the same.

This goes way beyond Kate at this point.

Kate is a twit said...

I'm having no problem getting into both Kate's twazzup and Kate's twitter feed. I don't have twitter, so I use these links:

http://www.twazzup.com/Kateplusmy8

http://twitter.com/Kateplusmy8/with_replies

Kate has been completely silent on twitter since her earlier twitfest. Wonder if she's consulting with Julie Carson May or her lawyer on how to respond.

There are now at least 3 other articles other than ROL that are showing the picture-and they ALL are showing the original one.

Sue Buddy, enjoyed your article. I'm on board as a "non-believer."

Thank you. "Non-believer" is a term Kate used to describe us. She dedicated her first marathon to the non-believers. What a goofball she is.

anger issues kate said...

Sue buddy: I'm not getting twitter, on firefox or opera, and I checked twitter status and they only have stuff from yesterday. Is anyone else not getting into twitter or not getting the tweets at the top of the page? I'm tryin to see if it is a regional thing? I'm in Illinois. I'm getting everything else. Except twitter.

AuntieAnn said...

Kate's twitter is silent. Her work is done, as predicted.

Sue Buddy said...

Anger, maybe it is regional. I'm tweeting and getting replies. Have you shut down and then restarted your computer?

Kate is a twit said...

I would totally do the same. If my daughter or any of her friends posted a similar picture, they would definitely hear from me. But then knowing my daughter and her friends, they wouldn't even think to post a picture like that on a public website.

anger issues kate said...

Kate a twit: Itryed the ones you posted and it still won't let me in, I just get the her pic and the bs line about I've join twitter thing and nothing else. I also tryed to go to another twitter and nothing. Got me?

Rhymes with Witch said...

anger issues-have you tried twitiq, instead of twitter or twazzup?

Try this.

chefsummer said...

I'm sure everyone will agree that photo just makes me uncomfortable in so many ways.

And I wish Kate or someone would take it down.

Sue Buddy said...

Chefsummer, unfortunately it's all over the internet now. Kate won't delete that tweet either, I bet, because that would be admitting she made a mistake.

anger issues kate said...

Rymes: I tryed that I get there but everything is 5 hours ago. I get no feed at the top of this page here, and Opera gets the same thing. It's got to be regional. Weird! I did reboot too.

anger issues kate said...

Guys: just tryed Internet explorer and it won't even got to twitter. So something is amiss.

Dmasy said...

I just had a few moments to check in. My house is still full of guests.

Kate might just be loving this attention...mememe, everywhere. She might be in a tither of excitement...they remember mememe. Memememe in the news again!!!

And that makes me even more angry. Angry! Idiot, careless woman.

There is no way we can help Maddy with the backlash of this. There is no greater humiliation than a pre-teen is capable of feeling.

Administrator, you did need to make a topic about this. Thank you for caring enough abut that little girl to exclude the picture.

JoyinVirginia said...

Sue Buddy, great article!
Debbie Downer, great idea! And I am still upset about NBC and the Jenner ”public service” bit on Today. Just added to thr disgust at the way Ann Curry was unceremoniously dumped.
Ms Kreider is boring, and knows it, which it why she has progressed to STUPID with the photo. In her deluded mind, the children are all still toddlers. After all, those were her glory days. Cute little kids, Jon accepting any and all abuse meekly, the studly bodyguard at her beck and call, and TLC doing anything to keep filming.
Hey, Ms Kreider! The children are NOT toddlers, they are average school age children who are NOT that special. I have plenty of relatives and friends with children I actually know and I am interested in what they do. Kids who used to be on reality TV and are growing up? Not interested, let them have their privacy.
Also, I have always monitored online social media my children went on, even pre Facebook. No suggestive anything, and their friends too.

"Kate won't delete that tweet either, I bet, because that would be admitting she made a mistake."

Loved the biting article Sue, definitely spot on.

And to your quote, I couldn't agree more. Taking down the pic now would be giving into the "haterz" and "bullies".

Because heaven knows that just because Kate didn't mean for it to come across that way, we are sick and perverted to think it could be taken that way.

Forgive my Canadian tendencies but, holy f*ck, does that woman piss me off.

Take the picture down, admit you made a mistake and apologize. How f*&kin' hard is that?

Okay, going to wash my mouth out with beer flavoured soap now. ;)

Oh, for the other Whovians on the board, you know who you are, Episode 3 is on tonight. Yay.

anger issues kate said...

Anyway: I too think the pics of Maddy legs is disgusting. And should not have been put on twitter for all the world to see.

Sue Buddy said...

Admin, that is an excellent article you linked to. Kate's defenders should read it. But they won't. They enjoy that sand pile in which they bury their heads.

Anonymous said...

Don't forget the Mail Online accepts comments; none so far but they often wait until they have a certain number then start publishing. It's a good place to let everyone know how outraged you are.

Dmasy said...

Here is a disgusting reality. I did not see the photo on Kate's twitter link. I trusted the outrage here and made the choice to stay away. I abstained.

That only worked for a few hours. I have seen Maddy now on two media sites. I have seen her yet-to-be-shaven legs. I am so sad for her. We all remember what it was like to be a pre-teen young lady.

Her mom sold her for a "golden platter". Kate is equal amounts of stupid, mean and stubborn and greedy -- and that is a dangerous combination.

I hope Jon can use this to his advantage, which is hopefully also the children's advantage.

Purple Skies said...

Posting Mady's pic really does show how disturbed kate is and without a doubt proves she is an unfit mother at some level. If something/anything will get Kate attention, she is all for it...even when it hurts her children. After all, exploiting her kids all those years on TV did just that. It hurt the Gosselin kids and got Kate attention and money.

My daughter is Mady's age and she said Mady will be teased in school for this...badly. Kate has no clue.

Those kids have been teased before (per Mady on that show) and these pics Kate is postly lately, along with her kid commentary...i.e. dinner table talk will prolong the agony at school for all of them. They probably get teased that they cannot even sit on furniture in their own home. Kate has the floors taped showing where the kids must sit. How sick.

chefsummer said...

Here's Kate's twitter feed if ya'll wanna read.

https://twitter.com/search/realtime/Kateplusmy8

Formerly Duped said...

I all so asked my daughter if at that age the picture would embarrass her and what schoolmates would say. She said she'd be mortified, thought the teasing would be tough, and cyber-bullying could take place on other kids' FB if Mady does not own one or by texts.

If Mady is ok with this, I think it goes beyond wanting to please her mother- I think it means she's a lot like her mother - sounds harsh, and she's young, but it's a pattern of hers, sad to say. I think Cara will also be embarrassed and also the younger G kids.

koop dedoo said...

I can't imagine posting a photo like that of my daughter. And I would call another parent if I saw one of my daughter's friends displayed that way.

I am wondering, though, is this all calculated in Khate's brain? The article about the charity fashion show mentioned the haterz making life difficult. Now, with the inappropriate (and so humiliating photo) that grifty herself posted, again, we get mention of the haterz making life difficult.

Is this her whole new persona? The totally harassed Khate who is oh-so-nice, but the haterz jump on her every move? Did she "mastermind" this?

(I am thinking this is not a coincidence)

Great article, Sue Buddy!

A Mom said...

Maybe Kate Gosselin had several glasses of her "favoritr wine"; was delighted to have her "best friend" coming to chit-chat. Sure hope Cara and her brothers tell Daddy what's going on and gets him involved. This isn't safe; behind locked gates one always knows it's a family member that snaps. Kate is so sad/mad she is not getting back on tv and really could snap and the only ones there are the "8"!! She needs help and Jon should get in there and help his kids before it's too late.

OrangeCrusher1 said...

And now she's probably also talking o het BH lawyer, thrilled no doubt to have his weekend interrupted with this dreck. Though to tell the truth I certainly hope Jon is the one talking to a lawyer. How special, having your pre-teen daughter's legs spread all over the 'net thanks to her stupid mother. I really feel for Mady, going to school on Monday.

Spot on article, per usual, Sue Buddy.

Sue Buddy said...

Koop, thank you!

I need to hug my dog, get some fresh air, wine and ibuprofen!

Thanks everyone for reading my article. You're a great group. Gads, I hate to use the work "great." I may stop by later.

TLC stinks said...

Pictures of toddlers in their parents' shoes is cute, but not that of a 11/12 year-old-girl. Very suggestive. Kate has no common sense or perhaps the above posters are correct in assuming she is ready to pimp her daughter/s like those other nasty reality TV moms. My feeling is that because Mady is mommie's BFF these days, Kate thought it was actually cute that Mady wants to dress like mommie. Sorry, totally not appropriate and mommie doesn't dress appropriate for a 37-year-old either.

Layla said...

Good heavens, this woman does not allow her children any boundaries, does she? She seems determined to dangle them in front of every pedophile on the planet, if it will get her attention. First allowing the tups to be filmed naked, then talking on the radio about taking Mady and Cara shopping for their first bras, and now this? I have to say, at some point maybe it could have been chalked up to poor judgment, but she has taken this way too far. This is no accident. It is not a lapse in judgment. It's deliberate. She is exposing them like this on purpose. Why? Who would ever want to humiliate their kids this way? She knows that pedophiles watched the show, one even edited it, and she seems to be pandering to them. Where is her instinct to protect her children? Is it completely lacking?
She was riding high on all the fuss over her runway walk, and then she had to throw something like this out there. Now the news stories about her fashion show have disappeared and been replaced with this story after only a couple days. She had all those people writing about how "sweet" she was, and she was tweeting about how those people could see past the lies and hate (HA!) and then she throws this out there. She is her worst enemy, and I hope all the people who talked about how sweet she was are now seeing what the rest of us have seen all along. She is not sweet. She will throw her children to the sharks to get herself some attention. She is a monster, and she will never admit to doing anything wrong. Because to her, it's all worth it if she gets attention.
Yes, I know, I'm on my soapbox here, but I am really livid about this. Most of us are parents here, and we understand that we need to be vigilant every moment of every day to ensure that our kids are safe and well. We fight to protect their innocence, and this horrible woman violates her childrens' innocence every chance she gets. Shame on her.

And that my friends is how Kate's fans think and how they rationalize her behavior. Unfuc*ingbelievable!

Sheri said...

Okay, had to go to ROL and see for myself. It's still the top story. *sigh*

I can't believe people are defending this.

How do they not get that it's not the so much the subject of the photo, and it could be considered cute as a private family moment, but that SHE MADE IT FODDER FOR PUBLIC CONSUMPTION?

The outrage is because she TWEETED IT TO THOUSANDS OF STRANGERS just to keep herself relevant!

I know I didn't swear this time but I think I need more beer flavoured soap.

Did anyone read Jaycee Duggard's book about being kidnapped for almost two decades? Her captor would watch TLC and look at catalogues featuring kids and go to the park and film them.

A vagina is not anywhere close to where the line needs to be drawn.

fidosmommy said...

Why is Mady's picture sending me flashbacks of the Red Cross Blanket photo of Kate?

Kate is functionally clueless about what is appropriate.

They got confused when we were upset about Blankinship too. It doesn't make YOU sick to worry about pedophiles, it's the pedophiles who are sick.

Way to blame the whistleblower and confuse the issue.

She just tweeted she has 2 dozen chickens and is getting 25 more. Who takes care of them? Certainly not the boy tups. She must have a chicken wrangler :)

Thais deserves a true unfuckingbelieveable without the *! Well Kate, if this is how your advisors have told you to handle the backlash I'd venture to say that you need new advisors. You would have done better to stick your head in the sand and continue to ignore.

Well bitch it depends on the pic then. If it's sexy and up close then yes that's an issue. If it's from far away like five feet and no one is in a sexy pose, that may be ok but why would you post it in the first place to 100,000 anyway.

TYIA. (and yes, I know they will say but twitter is different.........)

wayward said...

WTF.

I am sickened beyond words. If I wasn't before, I am thoroughly convinced that Kate is fiercely determined to cling to relevance by exploiting her children. It worked before. She knew putting 6 little children on TV naked would attract every perv in the US and blow the ratings through the roof. Jon said himself, "we put our kids out there for every pervert in America and TLC makes millions off them"?

Mady wanted to try the shoes on? Kate felt so compelled to post a picture? Super. Then how about a cute little pic from Mady's ankles down? Why a picture that shows almost all of her bare legs? Why, you and I ask? Because Kate got a tiny bit of publicity last week and she couldn't bear for it to go away. She couldn't stand to slip back into anonymity yet again. She had to GO THERE.

And as far as the sheeple claiming it's all innocent and WE'RE the sickos making a big deal over nothing.... they can just STFU right now. They all had their giant granny panties in a bunch just two weeks ago over someone posting a pic of a crying little girl (maybe 3 yrs.?) with her middle finger up. They were CONVINCED that this was a child of a hater and they were hot on the case to call CPS. All the evidence in the world given to them that this was a common photo shared (probably photoshopped) on millions of FaceBook pages would not convince them otherwise. They were going to save this little girl from her abusers. So sheeple? Suck it. Showing the full bare legs of a pre-teen girl in hooker heels is sick and exploitive. It is proof positive that her mother needs serious psychiatric intervention.

fidosmommy said...

Your Honor, Ladies and Gentlemen of the Court, I submit that the person of interest, one Katie
Gosselin, is a perpetual victim. She cannot be held accountable for anything because she is a victim of everything. She cannot be convicted.
If you cannot rationally comprehend this fact, she will be forced to repeatedly tell you on Twitter through her own 140 characters or fewer or those of her spokes pernons #1 and #2.

aggiemom09121416 said...

This lewd pic of a minor child CROSSES THE LINE.

Jon should be in his atty's office Monday morning.
I WOULD BE.
If not, there is something wrong with him.
Perhaps this is the catalyst to get her legally banned from posting anything about her kids.

Marie said...

Is she freaking serious? You know what this sounds like to me?

It sounds like she's stomping her feet in childish protest because other people didn't like what she said and now since she can't get the group or whatever to go along with it she's just stormed off in an incredibly immature hissy fit?

High heels, sneakers, flip flops, Kate it's not about the shoes it's about the pose in general and your lack of respect, a thought process also the lack of basic maternal feelings toward keeping your kids off the internet.

This is the mess YOU created because you just had to oh-so-badly share with your followers. The second you share ANYTHING publicly, you open that door to allow people to criticize because, hate to break it to you but that's the world we live in.

People aren't going to care that you think it's cute or funny and whatever. What people care about is your complete lack of judgment.

The more you stomp your feet in protest and try to skate over things the more it's possible you're setting yourself up for things you don't or don't want to see.

People are sick, not everyone but there are those people who will take the picture you posted and who knows what. That's what's got you under fire you no nothing twit!

Again...how far does it speak to your maturity level that the second things don't go your way you cry back as, "Why are you being me to me? Why are you bullying me?" It's not cute for a woman your age to act so helpless! It just isn't. It's pathetic and deep down I am hoping against hope that YOU KNEW doing this was wrong or would create far greater ramifications because one, your Twitter is public you moron.

You knew from past articles that Radar has posted things that to your own admission you say are private but here you are spilling your guts for over some what is it...6,000 or so followers? You just can't keep your mouth shut can you? Obviously.

What I want to know is why the heck is it so hard for you to just have a regular run of the mill soccer-mom life? Regular job, regular kids and activities? There is nothing wrong with that. Plenty of kids and parents alike would be more grateful to have a job, kids who would be grateful to have stay at home parents even. But you? Oh no, you find just about anything that is ordinary, private and comfortable and either stomp your feet because it's not "the best" or you open your yap to your "fans" because chances are you feel safe.

Hate to break it to you but I learned long ago that you can't spill your guts to everybody because chances are they'll tell you that you're playing them which in your case? I won't even blow hot air on it because half the stuff that comes from your mind to your fingers is filler because we all know you clearly have nothing else to say and nowhere else to go but down, not up, down.

Just like Kate her twitter followers don't get why this photo is so bad.

It's not that Maddy was in heels it's how the photo looks and how wrong it looks.

wayward said...

Oh and I almost forgot.... hey sheeple? Would you think the picture was so sweet and innocent IF JON POSTED IT???? Think about that. Think about that real hard while you proclaim Kate's innocence. Think about how you would viciously attack him for that inappropriate photo. And you would be right, it is inappropriate.

Now just target that anger where it truly belongs- on Kate. Don't be hypocrites- be ANGRY because it's wrong to post a photo of a child's full legs while she's wearing 5 inch heels, don't defend it because you happen to worship the person who did it. Think about what many, many sickos could be doing with this photo tonight and get angry. At Kate.

LoveMyGrandsons said...

Another great article, Sue Buddy. Admin, the article from 2009 was a good eye-opener for parents.

One thing I really do not understand is a parent's need to post their kids pictures on facebook, twitter, etc. Why? Why do you want to share photes of your children with total strangers? I just don't get it.

I only share the photes I have with family and close friends, and even then I used discretion. Our daughter will send us emails with some pictures of the boys' but that's it. She has sent us a picture from her phone, but it's private to just us.

I just do not comprehend the need for parents to share private photos with complete strangers. What is the purpose?

Also, I see by dum-dum's latest tweet she thinks she is being bullied. Surprise, surprise. Kate, what you don't get is whether the girls are wearing heels or gym shoes, it's creepy to take those kind of pictures and then POST THEM ON A PUBLIC SITE FOR STRANGERS TO SEE, YOU IDIOT!

fidosmommy said...

Is Kate telling Mady that all this publicity will make Mady famous, and the other kids at school are just jellus that they are not on ROL and the Daily Mail (in England, no less!)
She certainly is trying to keep Mady's name out there one way or another. And she's probably also telling her how thankful she needs to be to her Mommy. What other mother works this hard to make a 12 year old marketable?

Does anyone think Mady still wants to be a vet?
I certainly hope she does. Or something mediocre.

There may be situations in life where you don't agree with people, but you need to comply anyway. I think a good example of this, though a simple and benign example, is that some attorneys see nothing wrong with not wearing panty hose to court. However there are some judges I am front of who really feel they are necessary. So when we're in front of those judges we wear them. We're not going to get into a debate about women's lib or whatever, we just do it. Even if I don't agree, I can respect their view and not make waves.

Let's assume Kate in her heart of heart truly sees nothing wrong with posting this photo publicly. Ok, fine, but given that Radar, Daily Mail and a bunch of other people are posting outrage about it, why can't she just admit defeat and remove it for her child's sake, to at least remove her CHILD from the middle of a firestorm?

Rhymes thanks for linking to that old post I freaking love what Jodi Foster finally said about child stardom.

"Foster has been rather polite and tight lipped about child stardom previously, however she recently described her mother, who managed her career, as a "mostly negative influence in my life.""

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Does Mady know her legs are all over Radar and Daily Mail and how does this almost 13 year old feel about this? Please answer Kate. And no lying.

Also good to know that the sheeple do in fact draw the line at a vagina. I really wondered where that line was.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I think it needs to be said as has been discussed before that this situation is perfectly representative of how hard it to to stop a "basically shoddy" parent from parenting their kids. It can't be done. It would be much easier to do something about these poor kids if Kate would only do a few hits of something.

Jon may throw down a couple more grand to try to fix this on Monday, and will likely get nowhere. The law doesn't interfere with shoddy parents.

"High heels, sneakers, flip flops, Kate it's not about the shoes it's about the pose in general and your lack of respect, a thought process also the lack of basic maternal feelings toward keeping your kids off the internet.

This is the mess YOU created because you just had to oh-so-badly share with your followers. The second you share ANYTHING publicly, you open that door to allow people to criticize because, hate to break it to you but that's the world we live in.

People aren't going to care that you think it's cute or funny and whatever. What people care about is your complete lack of judgment."

Marie, that's a brilliant comment. Says it all really.

Obviously by her reaction to the criticism, Kate seems to think having her not quite 12 year old's bare legs and feet, complete with painted toes, in women's shoes splashed all over the internet is no big deal.

Yep, I think we should all nominate Kate for Mom of the Year.

We're just all so darn silly.

You owe me a new monitor. Yes, nice to know the draw the line SOMEWHERE.

Luke's Mom said...

Kate has reached an all time low today. To now be claiming that everyone who is concerned about her picture of Mady are "bullies" is just insane. She has some serious problems with showing any maturity or parental instincts.

Kate, since you read here - Please please go to this government website and get an education on having boundaries and respect for your children's privacy on social media and the internet

This is a direct quote off of one of the video transcripts titled: "Heads Up: Stop. Think. Click."

*"While a video or picture may be funny to you, how will other people feel about it?"

Get it Kate?

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Kate seems to think that because SHE sees this as innocent and cute, then it is. Sorry Kate there are millions of other people out there. Just because you see this one way doesn't make it so.

Look, I personally don't think much of a kid in heels, whatever. I don't know if I would call it cute, but, it doesn't strike me on a personal level. It is my concern about what OTHER people might think, the pervs out there, that prompts my outrage.

I wonder if Kate considers it a compliment to be compared to Dinar Logan or Kris Jenner? I think of her more like Joe Jackson, or Gypsy Rose Lee's pimp mom.

Kate is a twit said...

Now that Kate has made a joke about it, and accused people of bullying again, all the other fans are coming out and defending her. It's almost like they waited until she said something. I'm glad to see a least a few are calling her out on it.

I guess as far as Kate is concerned the subject is now closed.

************************************************
This tweet from her illustrates that she knows the Mady picture is inappropriate. Yes Kate,a SNEAKERS picture would have been marginally better but quit posting ANY pictures of your children for public consumption. You know those pictures are devoured by pedophiles and we know you don't care because it is all about using your children as commodities so you don't have to actually work. #crustylookingchildexploiter

Interesting that she thinks she is being bullied. This ties in nicely with her new "friends"; one of whom, Ajay Rochester, is anxious to promote ani-bullying as, I believe, a career.

I agree with Realitytvkids.com (Administrator), but believe Kate will not do anything about it! Kate Gosselin believes she is Gods gift to being a Mother; However, in real life she's a real loser at being a wife, Mother, daughter, blogger or spokeperson at anything.

Jon would be crucified if he posted that picture. Double-standard has always been common with the sheep. Imagine if:
Jon slapped kate
Jon traveling the country with a female bodyguard, in spite of it making Kate uncomfortable
Jon being an asss on DWTS
Jon slammed a kid on camera
Jon publicly getting drunk and licked
Jon talked about the twins bras
Jon sends a sleepwalker to bed alone

The list is endless. Their hypocrisy astounded me.

Has she even considered that Mady might be bullied and teased at school because of her actions?

Damn autocorrect.
"I'd hate to be that kid Monday morning."

foxy said...

Admin...regarding panty hose. I feel they are necessary for a professional polished look just like a tie on a man is required for certain things. The Queen requires (not Katie) that the royal women wear panty hose at all times when in public. (And have their knees together.)

Formerly Duped said...

I bet Kate will say nothing about Mady's day on Monday. Let's hope people tell their kids to be kind and the teachers ban discussion...that's a start, but there could be many ways she will be taunted.

Yes, Hannah is her fave girl tup- she's next.Kate had to tweet that H likes to wear the heels too. I remember the favoritism was appallingly evident.

LoveMyGrandsons said...

Yes, PiggyPie, I agree. You know that her classmates have not only seen the picture, but know of the backlash because of it. It must be awful to go to school and know that so much of your private life is public for everyone to see and know about. It also has to hurt to know that your mother is so incredibly disliked by so many people. Maybe Kate keeps them away from the internet, but you know the kids' friends probably have access to it. It's such a shame for all of the Gosselin kids.

Formerly Duped said...

The kids must wonder what keeps Mommy so busy tweeting in their presence. Don''t the twins have iPhones where they could take a peek? I agree it's a shame, and Kate has none.

Wowser said...

Don't forget...Kate LOVES kris Jenner and holes herself up in her room to watch the kardashians. Didn't she try to contact kris Jenner a while back to "connect because they have so much in common"? The pose Maddy is standing in in the picture is identical to how Kate stands in pictures when she is trying to look sexy and thin. Maddy learned that from her!! Kate is probably thinking if Kris Jenner can make millions off 3 daughters....I have 5!!!! We can be the "KART-dashians"! The fact that she went out running and made the snide comments about twittering pics in sneakers is very telling that she doesn't give a crap about the picture. This woman is just plain stupid. Here's a thought Kate!!! DON'T POST ANY PICTURES OF YOUR KIDS! Keep them private for yourself? Oh wAit...you can't because you have no emotional attachment to any of them...it's a monetary attachment and your wallet is their only shelter! Sad!!

Kate is a twit said...

I just had a horrible thought. What if some of Mady’s classmates have twitter or just saw the picture in one of the articles, and now they start emailing that picture around the school?

Why doesn’t Kate even think that something like that might happen? Just because she monitors her kids phone and computer usage, doesn't mean that other parents do. I sincerely hope that it will not happen, but there’s always the chance it could.

Formerly Duped said...

I think though that the kids might tease Mady about playing dress-up but not see that the pictures could be entertainment for voyeurs etc. Who knows- but kids can be very cruel. A lot of girls like to pretend they are older and pose and wear clothing too mature for them so maybe they won't get why the pic was so wrong...

There was a picture of Kate in an evening dress standing in an audience for DWTS, maybe? The dress was opaque but you could see her bulging meat curtains and it didn't seem to bother her a bit. She has no shame when it comes to publicizing herself.

My thought wasn't about the girls in the school, I'm more concerned about how the 12 & 13 yr old boys may react.

angie said...

Mention panty hose at work Admin? I can't appear with open toe shoes or sling back shoes either. Do you know how hard it is to find a shoe that is closed all the way around but DOES NOT HAVE A 4 or 5 inch heel attached? Brutal. I keep this pair, which I have had soled, resoled, reheeled and I always keep 3 or 4 pr of pantyhose in a drawer, just in case I ruin a pr when I put them on in the bathroom at the courthouse, where I work. The Judges can be absolutely ridiculous, but hey, whatever is told to me and no cleavage, no open top blouses, no sleeveless anything. We are as proper as the men, no Casual Fridays.

But if the Witch walked into a courtroom with Mady's picture, I know what the Judge would say. Family picture, taken at home, placed on a social network and it is the DIRTY MINDS of the people who view it.

We know this WITCH FOR WHAT SHE IS> This is free publicity and that makes her happier than having Jon take the kids.

Done with this bitch. She is a disgrace. Wait just wait until this twins become 14 or 15, it will be brutal in that house. The Wernersville police dept will get those calls "my mother is raving mad and flipping out on us" and they will tell the court how as young kids "my mother always did that when we were small and now she keeps hitting us"......I fear for the boys more than the girls.

The girls will all be Kate's competition. 100% competition, not daughters. But competition. She will beg Jon, pay Jon to take them. She will want the boys only. No competition.

Wish she would run into a rock. So who ran with her tonight, 6 people? Or 6 possums crossing the road. She is nuts. And she loves this!

angie said...

If Jon took that picture, posed as it was and posted it? He would find himself before a Judge, no doubt.

Kate, if you *must* post photos of your kids to the public, here are the generally accepted parameters:
from 5' away, whole body, fully clothed. With shoes on. Kid shoes. Not yours.
Or a smiling head shot.
No partial body shots, especially not close ups.
And not doing anything age inappropriate. Nothing toddler like, nothing porn star like.
Nothing intimate or private.
And they should know BEFORE you take the pic that you're going to post it for a minimum of 100,000 strangers to leer at.

Clear enough for you?

Marie said...

Oh come on, her madness is just too much!

First of all, if you're a parent, and by parent I mean at least a half decent one would you ever announce let alone take your kids on a run in partial darkness?

And now she claims her kids are budding Olympic runners?

What world does this delusional freak think she lives in? Because is sure isn't actual life.

Does she even known what her kids like, dislike, what they want to be when they grow up? No way are you going to get all 8, 6, 2 or whatever to like doing the same thing the older they get.

Kate, you are a moron. Normally I'd be nicer but it's not worth it anymore.

Just keep right on pushing yourself off that ledge Kate. It's about the only thing you're good at these days is creating more drama for yourself.

I mean what, did you have such a miserable childhood that you have go so far as to try and recreate a childhood since you know, your kids are extensions of yourself?

People have miserable childhoods all the time, my own included but I would never be caught dead thinking I could make my kids morph into all the things I ever wanted out of life.

Did your parents not hold your hand and meet your material expectations? Well, honey, life is tough. Suck it up.

You are living in this freaking post-reality world that you think you and your kids are just so over entitled and will all go straight to the top in everything. Doesn't work that way.

Do yourself and us all a favor and get off Twitter. All you're doing is drowning yourself you aren't moving forward.

Someone, anyone here, you mean to tell me that there isn't yet a center where former reality television stars can go to work off the edge feelings of their insane addictions of being popular and well liked?! There should be. You know a place for all these half-talented no-hack reality stars to all get together and tell their stories and blubber how hard the world is on them because of their addictions and needs.

I also think reality television producers should start screening out the wacko weirdo families for a start. That would help. Because I now think, "From what rock did Kate crawl out from under?" I keep telling myself, "Nobody could be this weird!" But there it is in black and white, repeatedly.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

It's unbelievable to me that even in the face of actual video evidence again and again, Kate will still try to paint a completely different picture of the facts. She's pathological.

I had to go and get a Rumspringa (it's still hot here in L.A., and after 7 p.m.) My drink tonite, is Mike's Hard Black Cherry Lemonade... and the occasion is M's Leg-Gate on Twitter. Sick woman, what's next?

Originally, I was going to post about the Family BBQ I went to this afternoon, and this thread fit right in- on topic. A mother, Los Angeles police officer, and family member, on my husband's side has finally pissed me off, to no degree-- for over 15 years. She started it out with calling her only female child "Skinny" since she was around 2 yrs. old, over and over again. That side is hispanic, and the child has always been very rail thin. Well, today (after not seeing them for years) I hear the Mom shout to the tiny model-esque 17 year old, on my way out... "Another (1/4) plate of salad, D! OMG, you're absolutely gonna BLOW UP, GIRL!" I wheeled around, and told her off. D's just fine without the anorexic complex, she should start starving herself instead. So done with Bitches!

Dmasy said...

I really don't think anyone can absorb the intensity of criticism that she is receiving. No one has skin that thick. Out running, "loves" her kids....la, la, la. Not possible.

She has to have crumpled on some level.

She has a tidal wave of negativity washing over her. I don't believe that she can take it with a nonchalant attitude.

Criticism is harsh. Insults are painful. Being attacked is brutal. Public humiliation has to be heart stopping.

She is dying and she is crying. I don't believe her Sound of Music scenario.

Chewey said...

Kate is giving in to her mental illness. Her crazy MO is to get the haters upset and then cry poor, pitiful me, unjustly scrutinized, and being bullied. She is clearly getting desperate for unhealthy tabloid drama that she has mistaken for celebrity.

Chewy, I totally agree. She is pathological. She stars fires and behaves badly left and right then when legitimately called out on it, plays dumb and cries about being bullied. She needs so much help. She will be lucky to make it through the next 10 years without every single one of these kids estranged from her.

She's pathological alright. She needs to be hogtied to an analyst's couch.

The only good that came out of this day is her UGLY pic was on ROL in front of Mady's toes. Her face is so drawn now she looks like she grifted some old man's dentures and stuck them into that gaping hole in her face. Her teeth are stretched over her lips.

This is what your freaking celebrity life has done to you KATE. It's turned you inside out so we could see just how hideous you really are.

Because you're slow Kate, we'll go over this ONE MORE TIME. People exercising their freedom of speech and having an opinion about your atrocious behavior is NOT bullying. When people disagree with you, it does NOT make them a bully. Surely, when you publicly trash people you don't think YOU are bullying, eh? No, of course not. So knock it the F off, it's getting pretty damn old. Even better, get OFF twitter, let your kids live anonymous private lives, then no one has any opportunity to say anything about anything.

Us magazine went to FB comments awhile back. One of the newspapers in my area did too. It really helps to keep the trolls under the bridge. It's horrible when there is an article in the paper about a teenager who died while drinking and driving, and people feel the need to say hateful things about the deceased. Having to make comments thru their FB accounts makes things alot more civilized.

What in the hell is it gonna take for someone to stop this Idiot? I was taking a break from Kart because she was consistently pissing me off and it wasn't good for my hypertension. So the first I learned of this was on the Daily Mail, which is my guilty online paper of choice. In my opinion, she should only have weekend visitation, and if Jon doesn't step up to the bat, maybe he should only have that too. Perhaps they can split the weekend or every other..whatever it takes. Enough of this shit. It's sick, it's messing eight kids' lives up and I'm ashamed that this stupid society doesn't intervene. I normally would never say such a thing but this just keeps getting freakin worse and some people should not have custody of the fruits (profits) of their womb. I need to find my beer soap now too and my Benicar and maybe Xanax.

Admin, isn't there a legal term called "willful ignorance"? If there isn't, there should be, because that describes KK to a T. And to top it all, she blithely twits about taking 6 of the kids running with her "in partial darkness". How unsafe can you be? I certainly hope for the sake of the 6 that all the running was done within the compound. Doesn't she know that twilight (I assume that's what she means by "partial darkness") is one of the worst for visibility? She's going to get one of the kids severely injured or worse. BUt of course, it won't be her fault. It will be the fault of the haters and the bulliers.

Well, I have to say, I have seen waaaaaay worse photos of people's kids online on blogs and facebook. Pics of kids naked, pics of kids showing their underware, pics of kids naked except for a diaper. At least it wasn't that bad. I feel really bad for the girl, though, Kate is thoughtless and has no idea what kind of consequences HER behavior WILL have on her daughter (who will be the one to suffer through them.)

I checked out "I just want you to know" Kate's book from the library today. She talks at one point about how they had to hire extra security and she says something like, well, there are risks to every job, fire fighters take big risks and that's something you have to weigh before agreeing to the position. What she doesn't get, though, is that a fire fighter is making the decision to put HIMSELF or HERSELF in harms way for the good of the job--NOT EIGHT YOUNG CHILDREN AS WELL! She will never get this.

I wanted to document this, as it is significant...Someone tweeted Kate: "@Kateplusmy8 U must be used 2 the no sleep situation! I only have 1 kid & haven't slept in 4 yrs... by that ratio u may be due some in 2032?"

Kate replied...
"I am. Amazing how u can train self2do that. SomeXs when traveling I lose track of days I've been awake!;( scary thing is,I'm fine!" 1 day ago - Twitterrific

This would be evidence of Kate possibly being bi-polar or manic depressive.

Everything kart twitters is specifically posted to piss off those people she thinks are bullying her.

she is sick, her twisted reaction is to lash out. I have no doubt her twit about taking her kids running in partial darkness was COMPLETELY designed to make us angry about her disregard for the kids' safety. I can see her clearly in my mind's eye "well bitches, see how you like this tweet".... she'd have cackled and snorted in glee, anticipating our response.

It's her sick F/U to those who worry for the kids.

There is some major pathology there. We know it. she knows it.

Sadly, she does not have the capacity to respond normally. she doesn't not understand the concept of boundaries. she has no idea what it means to be a nurturing, protective mother.

I will always say if she's talking she lying. If she's posting, she is deliberately stirring shit.

Whoever posted above that she is sitting back in her bed tonight reading all the outrage about her is correct.

she has NOTHING ELSE. No friends, no family, no loving kids, no job, absolutely no chance of that fantasy dream career on TV that she wants.... she has NOTHING.

All she can do now is stir shit on twitter.

Pathetically sad.

I hope this sexualized pose of the daughter's legs/feet in grown-up shoes finally catches Jon's attention and he marches off to court on Monday for emergency court order to shut down her twitting about the kids and posting photos. Any photos, not just ones that pedos will drool over.

I am conflicted about whether kart actually understands what the pose in the photo implies. Does she realize she is sexualizing one of her kids? Or is she so mind-numbingly clueless?

My heart aches for M when the kids at school tease her. It won't be pretty.

Good going, kart. Sick..............

Amy2 said...

When the kids at school tease M regarding the pics I think Kate is going to go to school and have a talk with the Principal. Demanding that the Principal stop the teasing. What she won't do is admit that it all started with her (Kate). Again, not taking responsibility for her own actions.

Permanent Name in Blue said...

Ugh......

'doesn't not understand' should be 'doesn't understand'.....

Greedy Gosselins said...

Yeah, I agree with the poster who said she's seen much worse with exposing kids' pictures.

Theresa from the Real Housewives did an entire show about her 9(!) year old daughter asking for a bra. Then took her bra shopping. No filter, these people. None.

I could care less if Jon goes bankrupt fighting this bitch, these children of theirs deserve it. Years from now, they'll be able to look back and say 'Thank god for daddy'. Jon can then sue Kate for his lawyer's fees. If only to show his kids' he has their best interests in mind, he should do it. You cannot put a price on a child (even though Kate tries to).

Or...Jon can start 'networking' (since he is supposed to be so good at it LOL) and find a lawyer willing to take on this case pro bono. Shouldn't be hard. Aren't there tons of lawyers looking for that one elusive case that makes them famous?

====

I agree she's doing it to piss people off but I think saying her non-fans are bullying her was a pre-emptive response (as Admin predicted she'd do).

And not only do I hope this suggestive photo of Mady grabs Jon's attention, I hope mainstream media picks up on it too. Pedophilia doesn't go over well with anybody, except of course the pervs out there. I think she might have stepped in it this time and probably couldn't schmooze her way out of it so easily if she went on the TODAY show. That said, I wouldn't be surprised if she brought along a tissue and did some eye-dabbing again.

Sleepless In Seattle said...

One stupid sheeple on Radar commented that she thought one of the legs belonged to Mady, the other to Kate. Sure, sheeple. Orange Kate gets home from the fashion show and immediately her leg turns white.
They have got to be the dumbest of the dumb.

Permanent Name in Blue said...

AuntieAnn,

Yes, I think that kart's 'anti-bullying' shtick is her 'new platform'.

One week it was koala bears, then nutrition for kids (remember when she thought she and Michelle Obama could get together to fight childhood obesity?)...

she has the attention span of a gnat; she throws 'passions' out there to see what will stick. she is hoping to get some attention, any attention....

I almost wonder if she might not someday come up with a platform against pedophelia. (did I spell that correctly?)

I truly think this might be the one thing that gets Jon to have a judge shut down her twitter, or at least ban her from posting anything about kids or at minimum, photos of the kids.

M will surely have a cross to bear when the kids at school tease her about this, and she will likely whine to Jon. As she should.

If he doesn't go to court over this, then I will lose all faith in him.

she needs to go away. It would be so ironic if a court order is what it takes to get her to stop. kart, to whom 'no never means no'.

JON, WHERE ARE YOU? TAKE CARE OF M ---- your daughter needs you.

Sleepless In Seattle said...

If she wanted to show Mady playing in her shoes, why not just show the shoes? It's not difficult to get a closeup of the feet cropped at the ankles. What was her reason for photographing Mady standing with her legs apart, showing that much leg?
Has anyone on Twitter or ROL comments addressed that question?

Permanent Name in Blue said...

Sleepless,

I haven't seen any specific comments like that.

Honestly, I think folks are too shocked and too afraid to put into words what the pose suggests.

I haven't and won't; I felt icky mentioning that the photo looked like it was sexualizing a child. And that is as far as I will go.

I think most folks get the idea, whether kart knew what boundaries she was crossing or not. she could be too stupid to understand what she did and how pedos will use the photo.

Or she could be showing the world just how hip she is to have a 'lovely daughter'. We know she puts a lot of stock into looking 'attractive' and we seem to get the idea of what SHE thinks is attractive.....

Who knows how her mind works? Really, who knows?

All that aside, and it is worthy stuff, but all that aside, what in the world will M have to deal with when the kids at school tease her?

Regardless of the photo content, kids that age don't seek that kind of attention.

And if they do seek that kind of attention, then an entirely different set of issues needs to be addressed.

Overall, this is a lose-lose situation.

Permanent Name in Blue said...

And a final post then off to bed - apparently octomom isn't getting the rental with the pool afterall.

The reason she gave in the story didn't make any sense (about what I expected from this fruitcake)... so she's still looking for a place for her wild brood.

JoyinVirginia said...

I showed the picture to my friend who works at an elementary school, she thought it was a stupid picture and ” gives the impression that there is no clothing on”. She did think the feet looked like they belonged to an adult because of the prominent veins.
Ms Kreider was an abusive bully to Jon. Ms Kreider, you are NOT getting bullied, you are getting justified criticism of your judgment and intelligence, based on your actions.

AuntieAnn said...

If a judge made her stop tweeting about her kids it would effectively shut down her twitter wouldn't it? She'd have NOTHING to say anymore. Her fans would soon get bored hearing how she ran 200 miles in less than an hour.

Sleepless, good question. The shoes wouldn't have been interesting though and she knew it so she spiced it up a bit by getting Mady to pose. She's a sick woman and a #badmother

Photo is just too much.... said...

Joy,

1. Impression there are no clothes on.
2. Legs spread.
3. Shoes too big, giving impression legs belong to a child.

Oh this is rich. Some fan of Kate's posted a link to this photo of Carolyn Kennedy wearing her mom's high heels. That should justify Kate's pic. yep.

Kate is a twit said...

AuntieAnn said... 163

I saw that. Some fans are going out of their way to prove that what Kate did is okay. How can you compare a picture of a fully dressed 3 yr old wearing heels, to an almost 12 yr old in a suggestive position wearing heels?

Many comments on the articles say there's nothing wrong with a "little girl" playing dress-up and wearing her mother's heels. Mady is not a toddler, she's a pre-teen. They also don't get the fact that HER mother posted a picture which should have been private, on a public social media website.

It's not the act of wearing the heels that we question, it's the act of the picture being displayed for all to see.

anger issues kate said...

Well, Kate is now annoyed by the comments to the pic. Kate made the snark comment, that maybe she should take pics of the kids in sneakers from the knee down. Well, like yea Kate, and the heels too. Then no body would have said boo. From the thigh down is sexual, Kate's fans can call us a prude, but then we are not, child molesters etc. who get off on looking at children wearing their moms shoes or get off looking at pics of Kates kids either. I will admit that seeing a pic of all 8, maybe once say every 6 months,or year(like an annual xmas pic) would be nice, not every week.

Why in the world is Kate getting more chickens? She has what 24 and will be adding 25 more? Why? Her kids are goin to be so sick of eggs, unless Kate plans on selling them?

I see Kate has been tweeting Irwin in Aussie, maybe that person on CC is right Kate is getting ready to go to Aussie in November. I see Ms Irwin is tryin to make her kids in her late husbands image. Got to stay on TV you know. Her & Kate are two peas in a pod.

AuntieAnn said...

Kate is a twit doesn't it scare you sometimes? I mean really, really frighten you that her fans are walking the streets, some of them looking like normal human beings? Does it have to be written in in big bright crayon letters that the fact that most kids try on their mom's clothes is NOT THE POINT? They don't get it. They just don't get it.

anger issues - Kate might be buying more chickens so she can sell eggs on the roadside. She's sure not going to get a job anywhere else.

silimom said...

I have a very easy solution for Kate, in regards being able to post pictures of her kids on her twitter, facebook, what have you:

Make your twitter private. Then you can post pics to your hearts content, the only people who will see them are your "fans" and you won't get the criticism you are receiving now (and there is a distinction between criticism and bullying. You, Kate, are not being bullied. You are being criticized. But you don't see a difference, I guess.)

I think you made a poor decision to post this picture. You were trying to be cute and failed. If you take your Twitter private then this will likely not happen again.

AuntieAnn said...

Last comment. The fan that posted that link should have read further. There's a quote on the next page that's worth tweeting to Kate.

*If you bungle raising your children, I don’t think whatever else you do matters very much.* -Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy

Kate is a twit said...

AuntieAnn-I wonder if it's that the fans don't get it, or just don't want to admit that they do. The people who first started talking about it, saying how wrong the picture was and that Kate should never have posted it were non-fans. Some fans immediately started defending Kate-but others said nothing until Kate mentioned it by retweeting tweets and making a joke. That's when the rest of them came out of the woodwork.

It's almost as if they themselves had doubts about the picture, but then figured "Well, Kate's cool with it, then so am I. It's just the bullies looking for someway they can attack Kate".

One of her fans even tweeted that it looked like Mady might have had her hands on her hips and was striking a runway pose.

They did more talking about the subject-Kate's daughter wearing heels-rather than even think about how it was posed and that Kate put the picture out there for all too see.

If Kate even looked at the timelines of some of the men who tweeted her tonight she would see what kind of pervs she attracts. Yet, she thinks nothing of putting her children out there for them to see.

I agree that Kate should make her twitter private. But unfortunately, that wouldn't stop her fans from retweeting Kate's pictures on their own twitters or putting them on their FB pages. So although Kate's tweets may be private, the pictures wouldn't necessarily be.

AuntieAnn said...

Kate is a twit - Ok, this will be my last comment. lol. If Kate's fans were really her fans they'd tell her that she's sexualizing her daughter and it doesn't reflect well on her wonderful mom persona. but they won't because they are weak little people who are afraid of being blocked if they stand up to the Bully.

Greedy Gosselins said...

Have there been any questionable tweets from grown men to Kate re: this ridiculous picture?

Just curious. I mean, Kate's playing right into their hands. Maybe a lurid tweet or two from a grown man would jolt her conscience...?

TLC stinks said...

Either she forced the tups to run or she is lying because they all do not like running. I guess she'll do anything to burn calories off those kids. Witch!

With her snark comment about a picture of the kids in sneakers, I have to say she is the most thick-headed person I have ever come across. Kate truly believes the pose is innocent and Mady was cute to copy mommie, because after all, mommie is the bestest mommie in the whole wide world.

I got to say that we can expect more of this exploitation from Kate in the future. She's already discussed on the radio about the girls' bras, and in the picture Mady isn't shaving her legs yet (oh, a pedaphile's wet dream) so there will be many more years of her sharing publicly initmate details about her children's lives. I don't know what Jon could ever do to shut her up, so I guess it is up the kids to make boundaries (I think Cara has already). Looks like Mady is in her mother's claws. We have commented that she would be embarrassed by the picture and her classmates would tease her, but I think the opposite. I think she relishes the attention like mommie. I bet she gets attention from some boys too. Her response to anyone making fun of her will be "You're just jealous" (same as mom's).

TLC stinks said...

I just want to add that "normal" parents do whatever they can to protect their children's innocence. Even with that, they can be exposed to some ugly things early on. I guess I'll go ahead and explain why I was so shocked by the photo. My former neighbor is a pedophile: married, father of four, business owner with youth ties, church goer. He exposed himself to some girls, around Mady's age. So a pedophile can be anyone, and it is particularly alarming when a parent puts temptation out there publicly. Kate Gosselin is either incredibly insensitive, plain stupid, or mentally ill. Take your pick.

SeeSaw,
I kind of feel the same. Kate is using the 'haters' shtick to stay relevant. It's all she has left. Now it's what she is known for. I think she might truly fade away if only the haters would get off her twitter feed. Who knows?

SeeSaw said...

When my DD was around M's age she wanted to shop in this store called Limited Too. I was horrified at how sexy the clothes were and said no to most of the crap. Why would a mother push her daughter into being provocative at such a young age. The makeup, the beach pose and now the sexy legs pose. She seems incapable of setting boundaries.

Formerly Duped said...

Well. I can see Kate thinks she did no wrong. And I'm afraid MADY will see nothing wrong- she posed like that or agreed to Kate posing her, so yes, maybe she will be blase about it at school, who knows. Mady loves the limelight. When she was younger you could excuse and explain it, but now I fear she's becoming a chip off Kate's old block! The next few years will indeed tell.Of course the picture could be worse- but there should have been no picture at all.

Kate should take a minute and think WHY are so many people outraged- more than jellusy? No, didn't happen.

Yes, the media is full of Topless Kate and Jessica Simpson's bikini baby. Maybe Kate is happy to be in the tabloids. Any locals care to say how their school deals with stuff like this- or maybe no precedent!

The running comments were so fake, running, observing?- huh? etc. Requesting a sleep-in- how does that system work? That is one mixed-up household. I'm not holding my breath for Jon to respond. But if he does, I hope it's private.


#kategosselinisabadmother

Formerly Duped said...

I read the Daily Mail comments which are mainly 'all little girls dress up...' they don't get that Mady is almost 12, enjoys posing, and the result is a picture that isn't Suri Cruise in her heels, but a copy of her mom 'posing' ( as an adult.)Shared with the world. Pounced on by tabloids. When my kids 'dressed up' they had other clothes on! Big difference.

SeeSaw: Limited Too was also big when my daughter was that age. You could find some nice things there marked down, but you had to search- I remember hiding the catalogue we got in the mail because it was so risque and cheap-looking.But the girls all loved to shop there.

Paula said...

The world was appalled at the pageant mom who dressed her daughter up as Julia Roberts' prostitute character in Pretty Woman. How exactly is that different from Kate having Mady pose provactively in high heels? I don't see much difference.

Formerly Duped said...

They are both wrong! There are many exploitative mothers out there, all the pageant moms, many stage moms etc. Varying degrees, yes.

Paula said...

I believe the "Julia Roberts" mother is now being sued by her ex-husband for custody of the child.

Canuck said...

Formerly Duped said...186 "Shared with the world. Pounced on by tabloids."
****
This is the issue in a nut shell and that Kate's lemming-like fans are stubbornly refusing to address. Lots of little girls (and even boys sometimes!) like to dress up in mommie's shoes and for sure, it can be cute. The problem is that Kate knowingly DISTRIBUTED this picture of her daughter to hundreds of thousands, if not a world wide audience of people she has no clue about, no information about, no knowledge of. With avatars and made-up names, Twitter is completely anonymous.

Worse, anyone who has been or is interested in the Gosselins either completely innocently as a fan or with more dastardly intentions (creeps who like to ogle children, for example), knows a LOT about these particular children. Where they live. Where their school is. And so on. For those who are claiming it is an innocent act and that ALL moms take pictures of their kids? Ask yourselves this fans, does the Internet know who you really are? Who your kids are? Where you live? Where your kids go to school and what bus they're on? Probably not. It's not the picture itself that has caused this backlash. It's that Kate Gosselin felt totally ok sharing it with a world full of strangers, some of whom may well have unhealthy interests in her kids.

As for yesterday's and this morning's tweets from Kate? "Look at what a happy family we are", "I love weekends with my kids", "we run together", "we have so much fun and glee"? Pure smoke and mirrors. Trying to deflect from the seriousness of her actions. She made a huge mistake. How different this might look today if she had just admitted she was off base and removed that picture. Now it's too late. But then again, she seems to have singled M out of her group of 8 children to be the torch bearer for exposure since she cannot get any herself. The makeup, the claims that M wants to be a model, and so on. I don't want to be overly suspicious but maybe this exposure was planned all along knowing she might get some press out of it. If so, Jon Gosselin needs to try again.

Kate is a twit said...

E!online now has the story. At least some of the comments aren't brushing the picture off as "child's play". This was one of the comments:

"its innappropriate. it's a picture showing the legs of a minor in a sexual manner high heeled legs. how is that not showing a minor in a sexual context. innappropriate explotative if she were a man doing this she'd possibly be criminally investigated. her judgement should be in question for this choice to expose her child in this context."

http://www.eonline.com/news/346285/kate-gosselin-tweets-pic-of-daughter-wearing-high-heels-angers-followers?

And speaking of pictures, I notice Milo is still asking for a picture of Shoka-she asked twice yesterday. Kate has tweeted pictures of the kids, that stuff she calls food, and other things, but no picture of Shoka since the end of June. She even made up some lame excuse for not taking a picture of him when he(supposedly) was on her sofa. I still think there is something up with Shoka, no matter what she says.

Canuck said...

I also agree with those who believe Kate may be trying to latch on to the concept that she's been persecuted and "bullied" as her latest public relations strategy. She honestly seems to think she would be a good spokesperson for the anti-bullying movement. Very funny. She's shown herself to be the most punishing, bullying, and outright mean person I can think of in the media. And to whoever stated above "you're not being bullied Kate, you're being CRITICIZED". Absolutely right. She doesn't even have the intelligence to know the difference. When all else fails in Kate's world, lie, deflect, distract, deny and lie some more. She's done it for years.

Canuck-I totally agree with both of your posts, especially with the happy tweets trying to deflect the issue. She didn't start with the "happy happy, love my family, fun fun fun" tweets until after she addressed the picture issue. That is, if you call making a joke, "addressing" it.

Yeah, all moms take pictures of their little girls in high heels.
Yes they do...their *little* girls.
Not their 12 year old girls.
And they're full body shots, not bare legs from the mid thigh down.

And I do agree that Kate has trained Mady to love the attention. Mady will revel in it if it's positive attention and she will cry bully if it's negative attention. Just like her mom showed her how to do.

Mel said...

A quote from the mommyish.com article listed above. That article articulates well what I think about that photo.

It isn’t a picture of a kid being silly and playing dress-up, it looks like a slightly menacing sexualized photograph of a girl standing, her legs apart, teetering helplessly on too-big heels in a darkened room.
