Paparazzi photos from fall 2009 show how intrusive filming was

The newly released disturbing photos were taken during filming of the final episode of Jon and Kate Plus 8.

All I can say is that I am so thankful to my parents for ensuring their children had the dignity of privacy. They would have never done this to us no matter what the payout. We didn't even take all that many family photos
for our albums. We just lived our lives and our minds remembered what it was all about.
Lots of love, few "luxuries", basic needs met without fanfare, good foundation for building a life. What more could we have asked?

Marie said...

Couple things I can't help but notice here.

First thing is, Kate, your son was 5 years old last I check that doesn't yet in a sense make him a man, he was a little boy. What was a dumb idea was to probably allow your kids to wear boots they probably didn't wear all that often so chances are they weren't broken in that well they can be old doesn't mean your feet will be all that comfortable.

For some reason, even though my mother was the same way, is there something wrong with not letting your kid boy or girl, cry ever? I mean I grew up like that doesn't mean I have to agree with it.

Secondly...is it polite to chew with your mouth open? Well no but have you never seen videos of yourself chewing on gum Kate? The rest of us have (and you mimic a cow beautifully but the way). So your kids aren't allowed to chew like a cow...but you are? Hey well look at it this way at least your kids will have better table manners than you do.

And lastly, why, oh why must you always act as if things are sprung upon you? You act so helpless, "oh I didn't know this would be our last show our last trip..." Get a tissue, wipe your nose and get over it. You act so surprised it isn't cute to portray this helpless victim. So...does that mean that any man who happens to (staged or not) come to your rescue you from your kids you will immediately love?

Yeah...that's not creepy...no, not at all.

Your expectation that your stupid show would go on forever at that point was unrealistic nor capable of happening. Ever show, reality or otherwise ends at some point. Sorry you obvious must have missed that lesson in life that you can't get everything the way you want it in life.

As of your current date like the rest of us, if you put it out there that you took your kids to the store to buy whatever they want...where is your income coming from exactly? Most people usually have a job which provides some type of salary. But you? No you seem to have become Jack-in-the-Bean-Stock with a tree in your backyard if you're able to pull that kind of cash out just to splurge. Not saying the kids might not have earned it.

I just don't know where your values lay in life. You tell your kids you have to work hard to earn things in life and I wonder, what do they think of you? Seeing you staying home day after day, twittering your thumbs down to stubs, doing basically nothing? Believe kids eventually will have questions as they all figure out one day...you might not be telling them the whole truth.

And guess what? For you it's going to suck big time when your kids catch on to you. But hey you got what you wanted in life so far right? So maybe you'll be able to skate over that thin ice just a little longer? But something's got to give...someday. I for one, just hope you know how to swim you know with your, "I'm not a water-ish" person bit going, you might be out of luck one day.

I think it was Johnny Weir the figure skater who was on Regis and Kelly, and told them his choosing had owned a house close to Jon and Ms Kreider, and how they hated all the lights and filming day and night, thatit distributed the neighborhood. I an not sure when this was, sometime soon after the winter Olympics maybe a couple years ago, but I do remember that Kelly seemed shocked at the criticism. Why both Ms Kreider and Jon did not put limits on the filming, who knows ? Ms Kreider missed the Celebrity 101 class, where it is taught that overexposure can make you less popular. The public gets fascinated by ”the next big thing”, then almost as quickly gets sick of it. That hot band, their CDs.end up in the yard sale. That hot teen star grows up and the girls throw away posters. The children will grow up and hopefully not be recognized.

JoyinVirginia said...

Auto correct strikes again! Johnny Weirs COUSIN lived near the Kreider Krew. That is how Johnny knew the entire neighborhood did not like the night and day filming.

I just reconnected with an old college friend on facebook and I had no idea but she's from Wernersville. Not living there anymore but was there when this whole thing went down. She always said she was from the Reading area, I guess because she assumed most people wouldn't know that town. After all this time I knew someone living right where the action was, lol.

Where on Pressi's site about child support? I just saw the production company.
~~~
Admin. If you're responding in part to my question, it doesn't. I was extrapolating -- from the posting re the production companies, foreign and domestic, plus the theory put forward by the "forensic accountant"--that Jon found out about the $$ that was probably undisclosed to that point, and that he perhaps took her to court. Surely that (in combination or separate from their custody changes) would have SOME effect on their child support arrangement? I was curious as to your (anyone's) thoughts about that...

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Oh I get it now Improbable. :) It's been an exhausting weekend (but good!) I'll try to figure this out in the morning.

JoyinVirginia said...

Since I am still up, let me help with another annoying off topic post. After all, we can't disappoint drive bys who can't find anything else to complain about.
We are fostering the most adorable little dog, kinda young, about 2 or 3 maybe. he was found in Caroline County, coincidentally close too the Stonewall Jackson shrine where his arm is buried. We are calling the little guy Stony in honor of Stonewall. That is, when I am not calling him ” DON'T PEE ON THAT!” That is why we are foster parents, to work on problem behaviors before a dog is adopted out. This one is so adorable, it will be hard to let him go. Out of give fosters we have had this year, only one was a foster failure, my oldest daughter adopted him!

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Joy, good for you fostering another dog! I thought letting go would be easy when I took on my first foster this summer. After all I already have a dog and don't need another. Boy was I wrong. I cried like a baby. I still think about her every day. And her real family even sends email updates so I know she's doing great. I'm not sure I'm ready to tackle another, but I have been helping out at the pet adoption fairs.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Notice how in the youtube clip Kate bitches about paparazzi following them? Yeah I bet you didn't want anyone to see how invasive the camera crew was being, did ya?

I know right? I can't imagine having my privacy so violated like they have. I've always had a fascination with and of course sympathy for those whose privacy was taken against their will and often when they were infants. Children of celebrities, these kids, Prince William and Harry.

As for photos, I'm an amateur photographer myself but I try to remind myself to take your photos then put the camera away and enjoy it. I don't want family and friends always remembering me with my Canon gadgets pressed up against my face. If even family photos start to get intrusive after awhile, I can't imagine having strangers doing it for millions of people.

Oh by the way, does Kate know if that guy filming her kids had his background check?

SM said...

Slightly off topic, but what agency is the photographer with? Paparazzi photos usually belong to the company, not the individual photographer... unless he was a freelancer and unable to sell the rights to an agency. But why would a freelance paparazzo make a blog about the Gosselins? It's a little weird. In other paparazzi photos from that day kids can be seen smiling, so I don't know if his story even checks out that well.

She rejoices that Farmer whoever arrived to SAVE HER from 'slow walking 5 year olds'. At 3:01 she is JOGGING with those babes! The more little Aaden said his foot hurt, the faster she ran and the higher she yanked the girl's arm up in the air.

Robert said 2 'helpers' but am I counting 3? two in the pic and one in the film?

Watch at 3:35 thru 3:45, she makes fun of the cows chewing and compares it to her children and just watch her jaw chomp on that gum!!!!

Fake fake fake fake fake. Yes organic cows are SOOO beautiful, Kate, it's all about whether or not their feed has had pesticides in it. What an ass.

Oh that horrible voice. I wish I wouldnt have watched it, now I wont sleep till Tuesday.

Sweet Tart said...

So disgusting. It only makes my decision to refuse to watch any reality show involving children even stronger. Kate really is the most apalling excuse of a mother. TLC is vile as well.

---------------------
If you are referring to the photos the Admin used for this post, the "photographer" is Robert Hoffman and he was indeed freelancing and at some point working with one of the gossip rags (US Weekly, maybe?). AFAIK, while he is a photographer, he is not a full-time freelance paparazzo. Rather he is a Berks local (and husband of Dana Hoffman, who is known for sharply criticizing the Gosselins in some blog posts at The Reading Eagle years ago) who kind of fell into the gig by happenstance. 

So it isn't like some random paparazzo just up and decided to write a book about Katie. He is truly an insider to the entire story. There's nothing suspicious about it. Hope that clears things up a bit for you. :)

I might agree with you when Mr. Hoffman writes on his blog that "In none of the hundred photos that I took that day will you see any of the children smiling," it may be a little over-dramatic. (And I'm assuming that's what your 'smiling' comment refers to). 

I just want to point out that socialitelife.com picture you linked was ONE picture of ONE child wearing a smile. If you scroll through the other photos from the day on that site, the kids don't look happy. At all.

Latest Gosselin Book entry-

http://gosselinbook.blogspot.com/2012/09/on-third-day-of-gosselin-book.html

My guess is that Jon is at the receiving end of that whine.

TLC stinks said...

So according to Katie's note to Jon, if she's not HAPPY, nobody, and I mean nobody else in the house, will be happy either. It is all about keeping the queen happy or you pay a price. What a POS to live with! And I bet the same thing is going on with the kids too. No wonder they will do anything to please the momster. I totally get it. Those poor kids, always walking on eggshells.

TLC stinks said...

This from a poster on Preesi:

asked my hubby(used to work in forensic accounting for a certain government agency) to explain all Kate's corporations. Here's what he said: J&K had their domestic corp together to handle all their joint earnings. In Oct 2009, K set up her own K8 corp to separate her earnings from Jon's so he wouldn't get any of "her" money in the divorce. Most likely, all those cash love offerings were never deposited, so taxes weren't paid on them. Now, after all this time being unemployed, Kate is out of money and can't whip out all the cash she has stashed cause she can't explain where it came from. She set up the foreign account with the unclaimed cash, and then set up the SK8 Productions on the same day. She can set them both up on the internet. She puts the unclaimed cash in the foreign account, then "loans" SK8 Productions the money. Now she has access to all that cash. Is it money laundering? You bet! Will she get away with it? Probably, because unless it's suspected drug money, foreign countries don't have to share information on where money came from.


Just to clarify--she could set up the foreign account on the internet, but the cash would have to be deposited in person (since it's not supposed to exist--can't do a wire transfer or anything). What do you want to bet Steve flew to wherever the account is, depositing cash for her, and that's why the "S" is on there? Since he is on both the foreign and domestic accounts, he also has access to the money. They are both scammers, and they're in this together.



TLC stinks said...

Kate is not smart, so who would advise her to such a scheme?

TLC stinks said...

So the original poster was on RWA which Preesi picked up. Here is a little more she said:

Hubby said she'll probably get away with it legally. He said they saw thousands of corps set up exactly the same way. But he also said the gov't doesn't have the resources to go after them all, so they mainly go after drug money because in those cases, the foreign banks have to give up info on the accounts. That's not to say she can't be exposed, but most likely won't be prosecuted.

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&
Agree that they can get away with it, but it will trash her reputation with the smell of it. With all the grifting and church scamming, this totally reeks of Kate.

Choleric Kreider said...

TLC Stinks #27 was posted on RWA, then copied on Preesi's. Just want to give proper credit (Mummy on RWA)for the explanation. :-)

Choleric Kreider said...

Thanks, Choleric. Just when I thought I could get some work done today, bam! I never went to RWA before, and I don't care for some of their bantering, but wow, oh wow. Between Robert, RWA, Preesi and us, it's been like peeling an onion layer by layer. This is getting very, very interesting.

*****
What brilliant resources we have here!
When I read this last night, it seemed like gobbly gook, but your explanation makes it quite clear.
What I don't get is how Kate could have gotten away with hiding money from Jon. He seemed to have abdicated all financial and handling to Kate, much to his disadvantage.
Thinking about it this morning, my sense that Steve is a wolf in sheep's clothing is stronger than ever. I think Steve saw Jon as a weak mark and got into Kate's good graces, got her trust and took over Jon's rightful place in the family.
I think they call this The Long Con.
Well played.

KAT said...

Money laundering??? This sounds like something out of a movie....Is Kate THAT cunning? Time to call the IRS....

Improbable Dreams said...

One thing that's often struck me as off (waayyy off) is the way Kate holds her children's hands. She allows for the least amount of contact possible. It's almost as if she's shielding herself from cooties. Or something. Inexplicable and inexcusable, from where I sit. And sad. Did I mention how deeply sad it makes me feel for those poor little children?

Anonymous said...

What a shit show. I really hope the lying Kate get what she deserves. I would hope that she would have to offer the churches some kind of restitution but I doubt that will happen. Maybe the lesson to her kids will be a good one. Do not lie, cheat or steal, it WILL come back to haunt you. I'm thinking that Steve is now going into low profile mode. Hoping no one notices him when the book comes out. He is a part of this. How embarassing for his family.

KAT said...

Even if they wouldn't prosecute..it sure would be fun to watch her be investigated...I'll get the popcorn...YAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

Would her K8, Inc. protect her from splitting that money with Jon in the divorce?

Joy Behar is the one who interview Johnny Weir. Here is the clip with his thoughts about Kate:

Kind of disproves the fallacy that everyone who meets her, likes her.

Formerly Duped said...

I remember that episode.The kids were behaving horribly and know I can see why. It wasn't a tour of a farm; they were 'working' and had no privacy or space. Such a sad life and you can bet they will member the bad parts in their 'memory collection.'

Improbable Dreams said...

Kate is a Twit at 42 ~ Thanks for the link! Interesting... Oh, and I got a kick out of the top story featured in the sidebar:

"Get to know the offshore tax havens that help corporations avoid paying hundreds of millions of dollars."

wowser said...

I think I was right...he is doing this for his wife AND for Jon. I have a feeling Jonny-boy has provided Robert with lots of useful info. BTW - the latest picture he posted of Kate... I think it's pretty obvious she had the chin implant (much more pointed) and a nose job too.

Kate is a twit said...

wowser-according to Robert, Jon had nothing to do with the book. He posted this on his blog:

"For the record and because it’s been suggested and speculated about on the Gosselin blogs, Jon Gosselin has absolutely nothing to do with this book, nor has he ever personally given me an interview for this book or any information whatsoever for this book."

However, since he has said that he and Jon were/are friends and he has been in the house, he may have seen things such as that note that was posted today.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I love Johnny Weir for giving specific examples of why he doesn't like this woman, not just hate for hate's sake.

-His cousins lived right near them and were taken aback by all the cameras and commotion
-She showed up late to a skating event he helped with
-She was rude to the skaters
-She acted like a diva
-The majority of famous people he knows don't act like that

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I think as far as the Jon connection Robert had already held onto a lot of information that may have come from Jon, before anyone, even Robert, knew he was going to write a book. Same with a lot of other sources. The fact that he decides years later to take all the information he learned and make it into a book doesn't mean any one of those sources approve.

TLC stinks said...

Admin, I agree. Robert and Jon were friends and I bet Jon confided in him (it sure helps to relieve frustration), so there would be plenty of info he is using, and yes, it doesn't mean his sources approve. I thought that Robert was friends with Jon after they moved into the big house? That note was probably written before the divorce but Jon was sleeping in the garage apt. It would be just like her to communicate with a note or email. She was threatening him to behave or there would be hell to pay. Such a bitch.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Anyone who got an email or note like that certainly might show it to their friend as sort of a, can you believe this, type thing.

Interesting foresight of Robert to hang onto it.

School picture day here means.... Straightening FIVE girls hair at wee hours in the morning...I'm my own hair salon! #momsrock

She's mentioned straightening hair before-I don't know why she needs to straighten their hair. Is she going to stay at the school until picture time rolls around and make sure their hair is picture-perfect? I would also think that M & C would be old enough to take care of their own hair.

If I was Jon I would thank heaven that Kate wanted a divorce.

Canuck said...

Well this blows years worth of Kate's lies that those kids were just "playing" and "living their lives" in front of the cameras out of the water. Sure looks like work to me, and pro-bono work at that. Not that anyone believed her in the first place but it's wonderful to have documentated proof to the contrary. Those kids weren't actors. One can only imagine how many takes were required to get half-useable footage.

As for the latest news from Gosselin Book, I agree totally that this is a note the Red Queen wrote to her husband. No question. Which makes me wonder...how would Robert acquire such a note unless from Jon himself. Hmmm.. Wouldn't it be great to see Jon referenced as a co-author on this book - would be rather difficult, I imagine, for Kate's legal team to prevent a man from sharing and publishing his own stories of a life he lived? Maybe this is the book Jon spoke of many months ago. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

As for the financial jiggering? I believe Kate would do anything to cling tight-fisted to every dollar, including something illegal or at best, questionable. If as the poster from RWA suggests, Kate is out of money and needs to move some previously unaccounted-for cash around? How could Kate possibly be out of money? $2 million in 2008 alone, followed by a couple more years of TV wages? If it's true that she's out of money after having made more than most people will make in a lifetime, then there are some serious questions people should be asking. First and foremost, it would make Kate an exceptionally bad money manager and it disturbs me to think that young moms are lapping up her advice on how to "save". It's becoming more clear with each passing day exactly how immoral, self-serving, and downright dishonest this woman is. It's pathological. She possibly CAN'T tell the truth about anything, even the most trivial detail, from boobs to trips to money to the dissolution of her marriage to her questionable relationship with her bodyguard and everything in between. Where Kate is concerned, the old saying that 'if her lips are moving, she's lying' really does apply. In spades. Robert, keep up the good fight my man. This is fascinating and she deserves everything she gets as a result of these disclosures. Cheaters never prosper. At least, not forever.

&&&

Yes. For instance, how long did the hay ride take? Because if you watch, they show a clip of the hay ride tractor rolling up the hill with just Kate and the kids sitting in the tractor. But then the next clip is close ups of Kate and the kids. Thus, they HAD to stop the tractor and let the crew pile in, as shown in the paparazzi photos.

How FUN, a fun hayride has to be STOPPED for production to get situated.

chefsummer said...

How much ya'll want to bet she made them walk cause she knew the paps were outside?

Formerly Duped said...

I agree about the hair straightening. Mady & Cara should be able to do their own and maybe touch up the very back of each other's,(trying to make them seem younger yet again) and yes, all the girls have quite straight hair- should not take too long at all- a couple of minutes each, as I'm sure our afghan dog Kate has a very good straightener!

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Their hair has been naturally straight since baby hood. All she's doing is damaging it with high heat for NO REASON.

Kate is a twit said...

Admin-their hair looks straight to me to. Back in April Kate tweeted:

"in am I straighten all three little girls. They have some of my 'sorta wave' in their Asian hair :("

What is wrong with them having a little wave in their hair? They're only 8! Just another "control" thing, IMO.

In that tweet she also said THREE girls, but today it's now FIVE. What a supermom!!

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I can't stand this stuff. There is nothing wrong with their hair. I have never seen a single glimpse of a wave in it. Sticking an eight year old in front of the mirror for hours of primping will turn them into an adult who is front of the mirror doing hours of primping. Ugh.

Parent In Lancaster County said...

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

I'm not so sure so meant straightening as in using an iron to "straighten" it. Here, if you say you are straightening it, it means that you are making it presentable...that is, after a night sleeping on hair (or playing outside) it gets messy and needs straightening.

Yes, it sounds strange, but in our neck of the woods, we use words that sound peculiar to the rest of the world! I have no idea if that's what she meant, but that's the first thing I thought of when I read that. She meant "combing," making it presentable.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Oh, like straighten things out, styling it? But then why did she say it has a wave--she clearly meant straighten.

Kate is a twit said...

Parent In Lancaster County said... 62

Thanks for explaining that. I guess "straighten" could be used in that instance. Like when you tell kids to "straighten" up their room-you actually mean to make it tidy, more presentable.

Mommy's hair is fried and f**ked up so she going to mess up her daughter's hair.

TLC stinks said...

I did not watch that episode. Kate, herself, lets the cat out of the bag that the looooong walk was scripted. As they amazingly ("Lo and behold, it's Forrest") just happen upon the tractor and board it she says "it was one of those things that looked good on paper...." I think that the kids were unable to make that walk and probably went nuts, so the tractor was brought out early. Aaden was in pain in those boots but what does momster say, "Be a man". Yep, she thinks her little boys are weak, like their father. Bitch.

I think Robert witnessed that walk and that's what he was referring to about the kids not smiling. They obviously hated literally being dragged by Kate for that distance. Did you see how far their house was from that farm when she had them all wave to the "housie"?

Kate is a twit said...

The thing is, in the April tweet, she said she does it everyday--BUT because it's picture day, she makes a big deal out of it. She's just looking for more praise about what a wonderful mother she is.

Formerly Duped said...

Straight hair a la flat iron is very 'in' for tweens and older girls. I can see the twins wanting to do it, but I agree w/ Admin that 8 is too young and will damage their hair- they have straight thin hair ( most of them) and it looks fine in ponytails, headbands, whatever.I can see doing straightening it for picture day, but not daily.Kate always said she was not good at doing their hair- they had tidy cute styles with the Asian nanny, but those 'do's' Kate did in the early episodes with a little ponytail sticking up at the top of their head were not so pretty...
I guess they want to be like mom, sigh.

( at least she doesn't tweet their school pics iirc)

TLC stinks said...

Perhaps we will be treated to a Tweeted photo of all the kids ready in the a.m. for their school photo? And yes, their hair is straight so I do not get why should would be straightening it. I could see spending time combing it. Ms. Afghan doggie hairdo sure does view those kids as extensions of herself.

Formerly Duped said...

None of the kids look like her imo...wonder if Kate is still stuck on their Asian-nishness.

chefsummer said...

Did anyone notice how Kate holds her kids hands?

It's like she grossed out by doing it or she doesn't real;y want to hold their hands.

sandy said...

now here is a much better grounded family that TLC wont bring back to TV. I honestly would not mind a special here or there. At least both parents show love and caring about the kids.

You should have looked at all the photos from the link you provided. The one you posted is the ONLY picture I saw of ONE tup smiling. This one is more typical of what was included in that array:

http://socialitelife.com/photos/kate-gosselins-temper-goes-off-on-nannies/kate-gosselin-takes-plus-eight-to-the-farm-10-2

Those photos, in fact, prove Robert Hoffman's claims perfectly with regard to the filming that went on for that episode. So thanks for the link!

Oh, and did you notice the title of the series of photos: "Kate Gosselin's Temper Goes Off On Nannies." LOL Yep, Kate's a bitch.

I guess for some people one photo of one child smiling means all the children were smiling all the time. I'm sure as more information comes out this is the kind of defense for Kate that we'll be seeing. I'm going to call it the "Head In Sand Defense" or "Looking With Closed Eyes." Or maybe the "La La La La La I can't hear you" defense. Nah, that's to long.

But why in the world is she "straightening" their hair (if that's what she's doing) at 5 a.m.? What if their pictures aren't scheduled until after lunch? If they've had PE before their pictures, their hair is going to be messy, and maybe even "wavy" again (if that's the problem). Kids are given time at school to fix their hair before the photos. Their hair is poker straight already.

Stewmama said...

Guess only the girls needed help with their hair this morning never mind that there are 3 boys living in that house too who might want a little pampering for picture day.

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

Oh, and I'd like to say, Kate's eyes in the photo of Robert's third day entry, are downright scary. It's the look she has when she's really getting po'd. And isn't that note chilling?

I am not going away so you can either do the stuff i ask or live miserably! You choose!

That must be her mantra. "I'm in control and that's never going to change."

Remember the scene in "Airplane" where the passengers all get in line to slap the one who is hysterical? Well......know what I'm saying?

Robert, thanks for exposing the Gosselin's reality and confirming what we felt for so long.

Good point! But remember we are talking about Kate and Kate's logic. She probably told the kids to make sure not to get their hair messed up no matter what.

JudyK said...

No criticism of Kate from that video. She was so pretty with that hairdo and more weight.

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

I think Kate's manic tweeting about how great a mom she is and how happy the children are and how grateful she is to have the eight and how she would rather be with her wonderful eight than anywhere else (even the Emmy Awards) is her feeble attempt at damage control.

now here is a much better grounded family that TLC wont bring back to TV. I honestly would not mind a special here or there. At least both parents show love and caring about the kids.
http://joneslife.net/wordpress2/2012/09/these-days/


I strongly disgree that the Jones family is better than Jon and Kate. They may even be worse. J&K didn't really know the consequences of their actions when the filming began, they were doing something that hadn't been done before. The Jones family had the benefit of wayching the train wreck, yet they eagerly signed up.

This is where a set teacher is so beneficial to kids on set. A set teacher would have made production stop and let them change shoes if their shoes were hurting them. A set teacher would have determined walking all that way would be too much for the kids and said no they have to drive. A set teacher would have spoke up that the hay ride was way too crowded on the kids with all the crew packed in there, and made other arrangements.

There was no one looking out for the comfort of the children on set, like their would be on a T.V. or movie set. I don't even expect a parent to be fully aware of everything if THEY are working too. Not to mention the conflict of interest in a parent working their kids for cash.

The pictures on this post break my heart.

TLC did a good job of making it look like they were filming the kids at play. Kate jumped on that bandwagon and tried to make us believe the kids were hardly aware of the cameras.

Seeing these pictures tells a whole other story and shows just how intrusive the filming was.

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

I never liked the Jones family from what I saw on their website or the couple of times I tuned in. The dad seemed very full of himself and tried to be witty. The mom ( who also had a free tummy tuck) seemed shallow and conceited. I remember when they were looking at new houses, she was would turn her nose up at the slightest thing that didn't suit her. They accept donations, dress their 5 identically, worship the older daughter who seems spoiled and also have a religious and healthy-lifestyle spin on things.They own a huge house and to me seem to be very materialistic.

I agree they could have taken a warning from the Gosselins and Masches about multiples and the dangers of media exploitation.

YES! And yet, Kate continually promotes what I can only assume is a lie: that the kids miss the crew, their surrogate daddies. If someone cramming a lens thisclose to your face is seen as a positive influence/friend, then...well, it's certainly a skewed view of the world, in my opinion.

Admin, I'm very glad you made a separate post for these pictures.

I commented in the last thread that these pics really made "the realest reality" of those kids' lives hit home.

Though I want to be relieved that Kate is finally getting called out, I'm just sad for those kids.

It may appear to be a good thing, this book coming out, but I fear it may make things worse at home for the kids.

There's really no telling how Kate will react to being exposed, how she will handle it and who she will take her frustrations out on.

The note Mr. Hoffman posted is very telling of Kate's mind set. It's not pretty.

Formerly Duped said...

If this close camera scrutiny is how the G8 lived for years of their childhood, they will certainly be adversely affected. I'm sure they do 'miss the show'- glad they're not under the microscope now.

Dmasy said...

Sheri, I had the same thought. An angry, frustrated and cornered Kate...she will have to lash out at someone. Kids will be in her path of panic.

She has shown some very thick skin to date. Impenetrable, almost.

I don't think she will be able to withstand these revelations. Some of the truth coming forth involves money/finances. I think that is, in her opinion, the most protected personal secret. (Well...that and the magic bra!)

And NO sheeple, I'm not suggesting violence. You all just lack a sense of humor.

And by the way, while I seem to be hogging the blog, thank you goes to Preesi too, for her excellent sleuthing. Those corporations are very interesting.

Parent In Lancaster County said...

Oh, like straighten things out, styling it? But then why did she say it has a wave--she clearly meant straighten.

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

I have no idea. I just threw it out there because that's the first thing I thought of. I often use that term, "Your hair needs to be straightened before we go anywhere!" It means styling, fixing up a bit.

However, if she says it's a wave thing going on, she very well could be actually straightening it. There's nothing wrong with their hair and I don't know why she would be doing that. Of course, she couldn't resist tweeting about it. If she goes to bed early tonight, it will be because she is exhausted from having to get up extra early to do the hair of FIVE girls for picture day, whose pictures might not be scheduled until nine hours later.

AuntieAnn said...

The PA countryside looks so gorgeous in that clip.

Kate, instead of pointing out that your kids chew like cows, why not tell them that 'he' cows don't have udders. Or is the subject of udders too sensitive for someone who's had udder augmentation herself?

=====

Improbable - that was always my opinion too, but I think I understand why those kids loved the film crew so much and why they miss having them around. They must have felt they were somewhat protected from the wrath of their mother when they were there. I can only imagine how hellish it is for them when they're stuck alone with her. She's a hideous monster of a person and worse as a mother.
It makes sense to me, finally.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

My point being that by explaining they have a wave, it's clear that Kate meant straightening in the literal sense. Therefore, she is frying and damaging her children's hair at EIGHT YEARS OLD.

AuntieAnn said...

Those girls have beautiful, thick hair. She should damn well leave it alone. Put a little detangle spray on it, brush it nicely and let it be. Seems like if there's a way to f*ck something up, she'll do it.

Any locals recognize the Asian nanny? Funny how she was allowed to get on film for this episode...think she got paid by TLC? Ha.

That walk looked brutal, particularly if you are wearing ill-fitting cowboy boots.

Robert, how long did that walk take to get to the tractor? How far did they actually walk? Tractor pre-positioned? Was Steve following in a car? What did she yell at the kids? Anyone other than Aaden crying? Oh my, the questions just could go on and on with just that snippet from the show. Imagine this happening for all those years. Wow.

Knowing Kate, Picture Day would be one of the few times(if any) that she would volunteer to help out.

Speaking of pictures, she still hasn't tweeted those recent pictures of the kids, which makes it seem even moreso that they were meant to be shared privately. Even when trying to keep something private, she screws it up.

Anonymous said...

I can't stand this stuff. There is nothing wrong with their hair. I have never seen a single glimpse of a wave in it. Sticking an eight year old in front of the mirror for hours of primping will turn them into an adult who is front of the mirror doing hours of primping. Ugh.

Or they will learn they are not pretty enough for mommy and have self esteem issues.

Because of how I was treated re my hair and looks as a child, my son will be permitted to do whatever the hell he wants with his hair, shave it, straighten it, color it, grow it long, whatever. Except no dreadlocks because they are dirty and can't be washed.

There are picture "take-over" days for those that didn't turn out so great, and those who missed school on that day. The photos taken are the ones that appear in the school yearbook. If you don't have a photo taken on that day, it doesn't appear in the yearbook, only the name of the student.

From the pictures like this one:

http://socialitelife.com/photos/kate-gosselins-temper-goes-off-on-nannies/kate-gosselin-takes-plus-eight-to-the-farm-21-2

you can see that this is a staged tight shot to get close ups of 3 or so of the kids. You'd never know that the others are idling in neutral while this footage is shot.
Al Walentis detailed another staged shoot when he was working the fence line during the crazy shiz phase of the Gosselin debacle. He witnessed the kids being filmed playing with a big bubble-like ball that each kid could get into and roll around.
First the twins, then the boys and finally the girls. This might not be the exact order, but the point is, the shots were produced and shot in order. Those kids not actively playing had to stand by the garage doing nothing. All kids had to stand around doing nothing while Kate was shot doing an interview blah, blah, blah.
Furthermore, staged shots were witnessed in Bald Head island, where the kids were marched out of the beach house to the ocean, then turned around and marched back in.
So, no, the shooting does not happen organically. Not. Just. Playing. In. And. Out. Of. Frame.

You're right. I see that now. I'm sorry. I missed it (the wave) the first time around, which is why I thought that she meant "straightening" as in fixing it up so it looked presentable.

I hope that none of them has to go for the re-take, or she will be up again at 5 a.m. to straighten it.

TLC stinks said...

Yes, Sassy, I remember that too. Wonder why it's ok now?

Marie said...

How is straightening 5 girl's hair different today than any other day of the week exactly? Assuming you ensure that your kids walk out the door with their hair brushed.

But maybe this go around you had to put in a little more effort which would be the only reason you would need to put that out there that it's the "wee hours."

And that you just HAVE to mention it's picture day because you really have nothing else happening for you and you probably want to hear your fans, "oooh, and ahhh," about it and hope that you'll put your kids school pictures up on Twitter.

My advice? DON'T. You laid out your kids school pictures during an interview and that was enough. So I am hoping that you'll for once clam up about it and let your kids have at least one private picture. But chances are you won't and if you do it'll be a darn miracle!

Parent In Lancaster County said...

1. Latest photo on Hoffman's site: those super high arched eyebrows = Botox injections. That's why Jimmy Kimmel was made up like that in last night Emmy's opening. And looking at that photo DOES give you the urge to "punch it" out, doesn't it? Lol!

2. Tucker's mom: "The whole the kids are just playing is so ridiculous. How can you play with a camera just inches from your face and a boom mic just inches from your head? Good Lord." THIS is what made me want to denounce the show, that kind of children exploitation.

My work brings me to work on television sets and I know for a fact how exhausting it is jut to be under hot lights all day long with a camera crew inches from your face all the time. Geez... Even trained actors find it hard. I think of them everytime I work in my garden and have one pesky "deer fly" (A direct translation from french as I don't know the name in english. Maybe "gnat"?...) that just won't stop buzzing in front of my eyes.

Heck: even "can do" Kate once admitted that she found it exhausting. I can't remember exactly in what episode (except that she was in the kitchen in their E-Town house), but she once explained how much better she felt the minute the crew would stop filming for the day and bring back down the lighting in the house to normal level. She even made a kind of "back to peaceful" gesture with her hands to demonstrated the feeling. I remembered thinking: "Yeah... Right... YOU find it stressfull. Imagine how a growing baby feels now. Your OWN babies at that."

3. When ROL published photos of the that motorcycle show coming over to deliver Jon's custom made hog, and that we were shown for one of the first times a serie of pictures of how close the crew really was at all time from the kids, I was sure that there was going to be an outcry on what the h... TLC was doing to these childdren' childhood. But nope. Nothing. Business as usual on all the fan sites. "Kids are not working. They are just playing in front of the cameras.. and 25 millions viewers. Nothing to see here. Move along. "

I am sure Kate started losing weight, tanning, getting her faced worked on, lipo, botox, implants, dental work, etc,etc, in an attempt to make her hollywood 'worthy'. Too bad almost 40 yr old newcomers aren't a rare commodity.

Concernning the close up of her face on the book site, with ALL that work she did to her face, she should have invested in a little hair removal...she's sporting major peach fuzz. lolol

Tucker's Mom said...

White Organza, I thought I was the crazy one who felt it ridiculous that the kids have the cameras in their face the whole time. Much of the shooting was done at the kids' eye level--hence the cute factor shines through and seeing the world as the kids do.
Except, the kids mostly saw a camera in their face.
At times, these long shots of shooting would get me angry. How can no one see that this is not normal! I'd say that to myself as I read sheeple comments of "so what?".
So what is that as Ron Howard alluded to; the camera's very presence alters behavior. Period. And how these kids were spectacles when in public. If having HOM makes people take notice and stare, what do you think a camera crew does?

Parent In Lancaster County said...

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

Catalogue? Do you mean the annual yearbook? Individual pictures on Picture Day are taken and then that photo is the one that is used in the yearbook at the end of the year. If there is a problem with a child not wanting the photo taken, or the photo didn't turn out, or a child was sick that day, they can have the photo taken over. The kids' pictures have been in the yearbook so I'm not sure what pictures she wouldn't have allowed to be taken.

Here in mediocre public school in a state close to PA, we have to sign a release form every year allowing (or disallowing) the school system to POSSIBLY use any photo (posed or candid from any school related activity) that may contain my child. The photos can be used for the individual school website, the school system website, any printed materials that the school system distributes.

I'm thinking that the OP was asking perhaps if that is what is meant by Kate won't let anyone take photos of her kids. (other than if Kate don't get paid, ain't nobody gettin' an image!)

Yes, forms are signed allowing or not allowing kids' photographs to be used for that purpose. Individual photos for the yearbook are entirely different. I'm not sure exactly how that works, though, if you allow your child to have a photo taken on Picture Day and then don't allow it to be used in the yearbook. I never heard of that happening. I suppose, though, that if you didn't give permission for the individual photo to be used in the yearbook, the parent would request that it not be used. These are not class photos (group) that are used in the yearbook; they are the individual photos taken on Picture Day.

One thing that really irks me is that she did all of those interviews and yet, those who interviewed her knew darn well how filming works and how cameras are intrusive and so close to their faces, yet not one spoke up and called her out when she said their show is the realist of real. How dare they. And then, Barbara Walters listed her as one of the most interesting women of the year? PLEASE!!!!

White Organza said...

Tucker's mom... (118) And Ron Howard should know, shouldn't he? He's probably in the top ten directors in the world right now AND was a child actor. So... I do tend tend to listen to what he has to say on the subject, more than let's say, a certain sheeple with a "rose avatar" on a fan site working in advertising filming and that use to cut any discussion on that subject because she was "in the know" apparently.

One the most beautiful and respectfull film on chilhood, if not THE most beautiful one, is "Babies", a documentary about four babies' first year, showing them slowly connecting with this universe through their five senses. Here, below are two extracts from interviews it's director, Thomas Balm├Ęs, gave on how the filming went about... (The capitalizing is mine)


From: http://www.thescreeningroom.ca/2010/05/interview-with-thomas-balmes-director-of-babies.html

There was always a camera operator.  Most of the time, it was me.  (...) And the thing is- I could spend 2 - 3 weeks waiting for one shot.  The ratio is really unusual and this is why you’d think that there’s no one behind the camera.  You’d think, “Wow, he’s so lucky to get this.”  But that’s one of the things you learn when you’re doing a documentary.  You need time.  It doesn’t matter what the subject is- here, it’s babies, but it could be anything else.  For example, the film about the basketball players from a few years ago, Hoop Dreams.  That took something like 5 years to film.  So to get good footage, it takes time. OR YOU SCRIPT IT. LIKE IN "JON & KATE + 8" AND THEN THE SUBJECTS ARE NOT MERELY BEING FILMED FOR A DOCUMENTARY, THEY ARE WORKING ON A SET.

Q. How much raw footage did you end up with?

A. About 400 hours.  Which may seem like a lot at first, but the filming lasted 400 days, so we really only shot an hour a day. AS IT SHOULD BE AT MOST WHEN YOU'RE FILMING YOUNG CHILDREN. AND "BABIES", -FROM WHAT I CAN SEE-, WAS FILMED IN NATURAL LIGHTING.

From: http://www.time.com/time/arts/article/0,8599,1986765,00.html

Q. Did the babies reach for the camera?
A. 
They really forgot entirely about us. In fact, very late in the process they started to look straight at the camera. This is when we decided to stop filming. The film happens in between the time they are born and when they realize there's a camera and start looking at it. WELL... SO MUCH FOR THE "THEY DON'T EVEN REALIZE THAT THEY ARE BEING FILMED", HUH?

And if you never saw "Babies" go check it out on You Tube... It's irresistible!

My daughter could straighten her hair at 12 ( it has a natural wave too, imagine) and also mine! I am not great at it- too impatient. She only did hers for special occasions though. She had a lot of bar/bat mitzvahs to attend that year so I recall her doing it.I guess the twins might too- some of their friends probably turn 13 in the new Year. Kate will have to send gifts or money!

If you look at the "weight" of those bosoms in the before and after picture on Robert's page, then it's more than just speculation! No good bra does that, and yet in the interviews she denied ever having surgery.

More from Mummy on RWA:
Back to money laundering. Funny how so many of K's actions fall right into the timeline:
J+K set up the first corp to separate their personal assets from corporate assets. That way if they work under the name of the corp, and the corp gets sued, maybe for fraudulently taking peoples' money (?), their personal assets can't be touched. Only the corporation's assets.Once she set up her own corp, she worked for her corporation, and her earnings became corporate earnings. Not marital assets, and therefore can't be touched by Jon.Before the divorce, it was reported that Jon found sums of money missing from their accounts. He also found $100,000 cash in the house. Kate then had to split that money with Jon, and we all know she didn't want to share with Jon. He was staying at home with the kids while she did the speaking engagements, so probably didn't know how much cash she brought in through love offerings and picture sales. Steve went with her, so only he and Kate would have known how much cash was collected. Kate could have been stashing cash for years, and when Jon found the $100K in cash was right about when she (reportedly) put a key lock on her bedroom door. Then banished him from the house. She was hiding something she didn't want him to find, perhaps?She brought in huge amounts of money, but between taxes, her large staff, agent, accountant, mortgage, upkeep up on the property, tuitionx8, legal fees, etc, that money would have gone fast, especially when she wasn't bringing in the income to replace it.
So, she has a big pile of cash, but can't put it in her bank account. CTRs are not fun to have to explain away. Feds might want to know where the money came from. So, the cash goes into the foreign corp account. SK8 Prod. is set up domestically. K can get the money into the SK8 Prod account in 2 ways: 1) claim SK8 Prod is working/drawing a salary from the foreign account. She wouldn't do that, because the whole reason she set up the foreign account is to avoid paying income taxes on the money. No way is she going to pay taxes on it now. So, she goes with option 2) foreign corp loans the money to SK8 Prod. No taxes, feds won't go after the foreign account because it's not linked to drug money, and feds can't really even ask her what the terms of the "loan" are because that's between the corporations. They don't have cause to look into it.
Gov't investigative agencies won't look into it. They're more interested in money tied to drugs and terrorism. But perhaps the IRS would like to know?


#CTR= currency transaction report. One is filed every time a person deposits/spends $10K or more in cash.
Disclaimer: this is what the transactions/events appear to be. Hubby recognized the pattern of behavior, but she hasn't been investigated. I would love to hear her come up with an explanation of why an unemployed, self-desctibed SAHM in Pennsylvania needs an offshore corporate account. I really would.
Oopsie. Hubby still works for that Fed investigative agency she wants to avoid. And I brought her corportations to his attention. I don't think she wanted the Feds to know about all that. My bad!

This from a poster on Preesi:

asked my hubby(used to work in forensic accounting for a certain government agency) to explain all Kate's corporations. Here's what he said: J&K had their domestic corp together to handle all their joint earnings. In Oct 2009, K set up her own K8 corp to separate her earnings from Jon's so he wouldn't get any of "her" money in the divorce. Most likely, all those cash love offerings were never deposited, so taxes weren't paid on them. Now, after all this time being unemployed, Kate is out of money and can't whip out all the cash she has stashed cause she can't explain where it came from. She set up the foreign account with the unclaimed cash, and then set up the SK8 Productions on the same day. She can set them both up on the internet. She puts the unclaimed cash in the foreign account, then "loans" SK8 Productions the money. Now she has access to all that cash. Is it money laundering? You bet! Will she get away with it? Probably, because unless it's suspected drug money, foreign countries don't have to share information on where money came from.


Just to clarify--she could set up the foreign account on the internet, but the cash would have to be deposited in person (since it's not supposed to exist--can't do a wire transfer or anything). What do you want to bet Steve flew to wherever the account is, depositing cash for her, and that's why the "S" is on there? Since he is on both the foreign and domestic accounts, he also has access to the money. They are both scammers, and they're in this together.
_____________________________________________-
So how would Steve leave this country with the cash to deposit? I thought you could only have 10 grand in cash....or it has to be declared or something? So the money is still accountable? This is fascinating stuff- I think I have found a new interest to pursue for awhile- money laundering. LOL

Where did all of that come from? Someone in the know, or a poster on one of the other blogs? Does this poster have personal knowledge of this situation, or is it all "generic" speculation? Was this copied directly from the other board?

Fan who is learning A LOT @129 - I had a mastectomy with immediate reconstruction was only in the hospital over night and only took off a week from work becasue of the drains. If only having an implant put in you wouldn't need much recovery time at all and it may even be an in office procedure. All she would need is an ace bandage around them or a good bra! And maybe that's why she insists she got a good bra. My surgeon told me to either keep the ace bandage wrap on or get a really good sports bra to wear 24/7. By George, I think I've solved the "good bra" mystery!

Looking at the video clip above, it is obvious that Kate had the breast augmentation done mid-J+K plus 8. I don't think her chin or face was worked on yet. She actually looked much younger, fresher and better before she fiddled with her face.

I am guessing she had her face done pre-K+8? Remember all those times she disappeared from the paparazzi for a week or so? I bet that is when she had all those procedures. It is hard to tell what is the result of plastic surgery vs. weight loss as she did both simultaneously. She definitely did something to her chin, possibly nose and cheekbones, and most likely her eyes.

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

If you click through the above pics you will see MANY MANY days where she was in her train conductor cap over and over. Shielding face from sun after platic surgery? I think so. There were a great many pap shots that summer of her wearing odd hats, and it we know it isnt because she was trying to maintain a lilly white facial complexion.

Formerly Duped said...

Things "I CAN'T" do? Isn't she Can-do Kate?
Probably she left that after she had to leave for Jon's custody. Wanted him to do the lion's share of house/property tasks. Jon probably didn't have the motivation to do much since he got so little out of the mansion, but he was never one to shirk duties- did way chores more than Kate. I remember one later episode where she complained J didn't interact with the kids, just talked on the phone...SHE would never do that, would she. Threat that the kids would be unhappy if Mommy was unhappy.

Dwindle said...

So i was wondering...

How much of this was Steve? How much money and cash did he see rolling in unaccounted for? He knew Kate was mentally unbalanced and easily manipulated if he could just learn to speak her language - greed, money, fame, validation, self-importance. Helping her focus her always simmering rage but now focus it on her husband. Helping push a divorce, Incs, laundering money, keeping her focused on remaking her physical image into MILF sexpot... How much of this was Steve's brainchild and manipulation, attaching himself to ea$y street?

I am not saying Kate is blameless - to the contrary, as a "Christian" woman, she should have been well aware of the proverbial snake intent on weakening her marriage, her ability to mother, and leaching onto her soul. I think she met that snake in Steve. She is weak minded, mentally ill, and could have had the power of a huge media corporation propelling her. But her adolescent rage is stronger than any material items could soothe.

They'd just come out of a restaurant and snow flakes were falling. Anyone remember that? I'd like to know the date.

And what's up with "I am not going away so you can either do the stuff i ask or live miserably! You choose!"

This must have been a huge disappointment to Jon. He was sooooooooo hoping.... well, anyway, who in the hell does she think she is? She is so vile. So ugly, this woman who claims that she's so nice if only you'd get to know her.

Dwindle said...

AND ANOTHER THING!!!

Jon and his jobs are too mediocre for Kate. She wanted better than mediocre for her kids. They deserve a golden platter.

So with Kate and all her stashed millions, they cant have milk to drink, they cant have clothes that fit, they cant have clean clothes and linens, they cant afford to go to movies, take gymnastics, cant afford to have proper servings of meat, eat expired food, cant have Halloween till the candy goes on clearance... How is this not MEDIOCRE for the kids? How much more mediocre would their young lives be if their gestational carrier did NOT have millions stashed hither thither and yon?

Yeah, they have a big finished basement to play in as do many many kids in America; but not one lick of privacy or individuality or dignity.

TLC stinks said...

Yes, I do believe that any amount over $10K when you leave or enter the US has to be declared. If you try to sneak it, they would probably find it in your carry-on when x-rayed. Perhaps he did declare the money. I don't know anything about money laundering or how you would get money out of the country, but it happens. Wonder if there was an electronic transfer...it leaves a trail but they probably thought no one would ever get tipped off. Anyone? It makes sense to me, though, that she has the off-shore account for hiding money from the IRS (and Jon).

Interesting idea. Don't forget, he boldly and without a moment's hesitation declared Jon "useless", I believe it was, in the full presence of cameras and microphones. This long-time "family" friend. At least that's what Kate said when it started to become known that Jon was uncomfortable with the relationship between Steve and his wife, regardless of whether anything was going on or not. And let's also not forget, these filmed 'home movies' that Kate sits with her children to watch and cry over? Surely they would have some feelings about this Steve calling their dad 'useless', wouldn't they? I think you could be right Dwindle. Kate's as dumb as a dumb blonde can be. Maybe old rat-claws had a plan from early on in this twisted, dishonest game.

And Kate? Since we know you read here regularly? Claiming innocence and blaming Skeeve won't even begin to pass muster. Just in case you're having an "a-ha" moment about how to wriggle out of this mess.

And isn't it interesting that Skeeve has all but disappeared recently? The fashion show in NYC, for example. Not a trace of him to be found in any of the photos - not even a picture of his shoe. When can any of us think of the last time she went to ANY public event without him? Even a convention of coupon clippers, he was there. He must have said "No" for some reason to accompanying Kate on this latest (failed) attempt at celebrity and media exposure. But that was BEFORE it began to appear that Hoffman had won the right to publish these details about Kate, wasn't it Skeeve? And it seems Hoffman has beaten them...otherwise, he would have been legally bound and gagged to prevent him from leaking these daily tidbits. Not to mention the book. So...Skeevie...where are ya mate? Hidin'? Covering your ASSets? Distancing yourself from La Diva?

Sweet Tart said...

It seems to me that both Kate and Steve are amoral - have absolutely no morals or conscience. What they want, they will go after regardless of laws, decency or morality. What I really don't understand is why Gina stays married to Steve - is she afraid of him? Does he hold the pursestrings and she has no money of her own? Or is she almost as bad as her husband, and willing to participate in fraud for financial gain? Maybe we'll never know the answers to these questions.

However, I am absolutely certain that Steve Nield is an opportunist. Is he an American citizen? Can he be deported if he's found guilty of committing fraud? He lucked into the "bodyguard" gig, and quickly realized that it presented him with quite an opportunity for much more than a per diem for trailing around behind Kate and carrying her purse or her dry cleaning. I do think he ingratiated himself to her and has some sort of hold over her.

However, this does not mean I exonerate Kate for any of her actions. Long before creeper Steve came into her life, she had big plans for making money off her children. Those children were conceived and born for one reason only - to be used as props to generate income for Kate. And I am referring to all 8 children - I think Kate was disappointed when she had twins the first time she used fertility treatments. The only reason Mady and Cara escaped the worst of the exploitation is simply because there were only two of them.

Each time I learn more about how filming was accomplished, my heart breaks a little more for those children. It's ironic that TLC was actually going to produce a show called "Twist of Kate," because she is one of the most twisted individuals I have ever known of. She is wicked, and so is Steve Nield. I hope they are exposed for who and what they truly are. Sadly, she apparently still has lots of money - and as I well know, money often means you get away with crimes in this world. Money talks. Still, I do hold out hope that eventually, Kate and Steve's crimes will catch up with them.

Just an interesting tidbit. On the Yahoo page there was an article about stars who were asked to come back to DWTS this season and didn't want to for various reasons such as Mario Lopez and the Kardashians. They did bring up Kate Gosselin and this is what it said:

Kate Gosselin

Not everyone wanted to turn down "All-Stars." Kate Gosselin had a difficult run on Season 10, and she apparently lobbied to be on the special all-stars season. However, producers reportedly rejected her because they felt her storyline "wasn't interesting enough."...


njay said...

The comment in the note is so her. Just like the time she said "I'm in charge and that's never going to change".

Also, does anyone remember in the episode where they got the two puppies, M cried and said that she wanted to get one that would love just her? To me that was so telling. No wonder she doesn't leave Kate's side. She is finally getting the attention she has craved from her mom.

It has been said by so many here that M has Kate's number and knows exactly how to play her. The only thing that makes me sad is that it comes at a price. To be liked by Kate you have to play her game, manipulation. That kind of manipulation in the end leaves you like Milo, saying anything you want to hear just to have a friend.

Skeeve was out of line for saying that.
What right does he have (as Kate's employee), and/or "friend" to make a comment like that? Unless... Skeevie was much more than that.

Hey Robert, do you know anything about Skeeve's role in Kate's scary tale?

IMO, perhaps if Skeeve behaved like a REAL body guard- not a purseboy, boobie designer, travel companion,etc... up Kate's ass as much as he was, things might of been different.









Kate is a twit said...

I found an old video on YouTube, which was uploaded in April 2008. I never knew that Jon and Kate appeared on Dr. Phil together to get parenting tips from him. They're appearance must have been sometime in 2007, since they said the show was on Discovery Health. The show didn't move to TLC until Jan. 2008.

At the end of the clip, Dr. Phil tells that he has arranged with "Nannies for Hire" to provide nannies 3 hrs per day, 4 days per wk, for 6 months. Plus Playskool was also going to provide $3000 worth of toys.

The episode "Kate Hires a Nanny" aired 1/14/08. The episode gives the impression that it was Kate's idea to get a nanny, plus saying "hires" made it seem like they were paying for it.

Just another example how much deception was a part of the show. This is the Dr. Phil interview:

Help me out folks with better memories than me. I'm sure I remember Skeeve saying this, I just can't remember in which episode. I do remember being rather shocked that he was brazen enough to say it on camera, and couldn't help thinking to myself "you call those childrens' father useless, when all I ever see you do is trailing along behind a used up reality personality, carrying her purse??" And I wondered at the time whether the kids had heard him say it, or might see it on film somewhere down the line. Anyone else remember this?

SHeesh! I'm gone all day (real life, ya know) and all HE** breaks loose! Pictures, hair, nasty note, corporate swindles, etc. I don't know where to start!

Oh yes, I do. Hair! I've had stick straight hair my whole life. It's the bane of my existence. I'd kill for a "sorta wave". The girls' hair is beautiful. Leave it alone, KK!

Re pictures. I seem to remember reading that KK wouldn't allow the kids to be in their class group pictures. I think it was the younger kids and they were in K, or maybe pre-k? There were also reports that she pitched a fit when their picture was taken as part of a Christmas show, or something?

Re the corporate finagling. I'd be willing to bet that Skeeve is behind this. He's an executive in his own business, so he would have to know something about corporations and how they operate. And since he's a foreign national, or at least was (depending upon whether or not he's now a naturalized citizen), he probably knows about incorporating in foreign countries.

Tweet-le 73 -- How about the Ostrich Defense?

That note is just about the nastiest and most disrespectful thing I've ever read. Of course KK never stops to think that with all the "daily stuff" she foisted upon Jon, maybe he didn't have the time to do all her other chores for her. No wonder the man looked like a whipped puppy most of the time.

I think it's pretty obvious that KK has had work done on her chin, at the very least. In the early pictures, her chin was rounded and slightly receding. Now it's pointed and not receding. Weight loss can account for some things, but it doesn't move your chin forward.

My last comment of the day. Someone should tell Dr. Phil he got had by this liar, Kate Gosselin! Better yet, tell his wife Robin...she wouldn't like the idea of her husband having been taken for a fool by an amateur like Kate.

Cruisin', thanks for the link. I'm trying to figure out exactly when Kate had the boob job.

Welcome. The Kate denies Mady water video was in January of 2009. It's hard to tell if the girls are popping around under the sweater.

Ha, ha. Maybe Steve's own security firm should investigate HIM?

I haven't caught up with all the comments about Stevie and his part in the corporation Preesi did such a great job of finding, and I'm wondering if there's proof that SK8, Inc. does refer to Steve and Kate?

Kate showed no true regard for Jon on any of the shows I saw. She did not respect him in the slightest. From what I observed, I came to the conclusion that she chose him as her "baby daddy" for all the wrong reasons. It's a sad story, really. She was quite taken with Jon's father's position in the community and they received a lot of help from him. He died shortly after the tups were born. Show or no show, Kate has agendas in her life. You either fit in to her plan, or you are gone. Ask the former friends. You are either doing for Kate and building her up, or you are OUT! Don't cross or question Kate, or you will feel her wrath. It's unbelieveable to me that anyone would expect 6 five year old children to walk a mile on hot asphalt roads in uncomfortable cowboy boots. Ever rubbed a blister on the back of your heels from those boots? I have and it hurts for a good long while. Kate was wearing comfortable gym shoes. The children needed those as well. Difficult to understand her thinking or to watch. Where is the motherly compassion? Chip missing?

TLC stinks said...

Jane, I haven't seen any proof, just speculation and it smells. At some point she first called Steve her road manager. Is that anywhere near the time the corporations were formed?

LaLaLandNoMore said...

I agree that Dr. Phil was taken for a ride by the Gosselins. I haven't seen Kate back on his show. Has anyone else?

Did see Nadeya Suleman on his show today. I wrote to Dr. Phil and suggested that he and his staff keep their eyes on her. I didn't like what I heard. She is trying too hard to convince us that she has everything with those kids taken care of. That's too many kids for any one person to watch. The interview made me feel very uncomfortable.

One thing I've always valued more than anything is respect between a man and a woman. I grew up watching one set of grandparents talk to each other very disrespectfully and it was very upsetting. I never understood that. This is the person you supposedly love and who is the parent of your child. I think that's probably why I was onto Kate early in this scam. I saw how she treated Jon and I'd seen that crap before.

S&K8

Could mean Satan and Kate cause she sold her 8.

TLC stinks said...

So here's the thing with Kate's history of tossing people aside....how come Steve has outlasted them all? Something to ponder and that's another reason why I believe he is the "S" in SK8, Inc. He may have graduated from bodyguard and purse carrier to cohort. Time will tell. I hope someone will have the guts ask her why she has the foreign corporation.

Let's wonder, what is Kate doing right now?

She most likely spent a lot of money fighting the book that will be published
She hid accounts that Preesi has revealed.
Steve is not in attendance.
No one gave her a free ticket to the Emmy's.

Life is not so pretty right now.
