Discussion thread: Kate on 'Katie'

We're hearing Katie Couric actually asked some tough questions, about the book Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World, Kate's hired help, and going back to nursing.

Check local listings.

I thought I had read that most preemies are well caught up by this age and usually much sooner such that you'd never know they were preemies. Unless there was some kind of permanent damage, which I never noticed in the kids.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Not a single tweet from her in almost 24 hours. I wonder if she's pissed about Katie Couric not being stopped from asking the tough questions.

Rhymes with Witch said...

Bringing over from the last thread.

The fact that she even asked about the book is great....that means that Kate's people didn't get to her telling her it's off limits. 55

So Dicovery/TLC didn't and her bad ass lawyers couldn't stop the question. Hmmm.
I'll be interested to see if it ends up on the cutting room floor though.

The All Powerful isn't so powerful anymore.

"15-20 hours of help per week" per employee....lol

Either that or 15-20 hours of help per week and the rest of the time they are with Jon.

Monrovia said...

Admin - It depends on how early they were born, but many hit their milestones a bit later during the first 3 or 4 years. My daughter didn't start talking until age two and had some impulse control issues, but now she's five and is a chatterbox and can now control her temper much better.

Obviously, that's my own experience but it jibes with the research I've done. So the expectations Kate had with respect to potty training were utterly unreasonable.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I like that it appears that Katie stood up for what people wanted asked. The twitterer said that Katie said sorry I'm asking because my fans WANT ME TO. Fans first, that's right.

SUCK IT KATE. GO KATIE!

Admin @ 2 I'm betting she is furious.

Admin,

Is it possible that TLC/Discovery could have had a restraining order against Jon to keep him from the kids/house while filming?

Agree with that for any kid really. Premature or not accidents are going to happen and for kids that are not ready, a lot of accidents.

KATIE'S FANS. Go Katie.

Kate failed to mention the real reason she won't go back to nursing.................SHE EFFING RICH!!!!!!

It's possible a court ordered him not to disrupt filming, yes. A restraining order is usually public record though at least here it is. It would have shown up on his record which I'm sure the sheeple have checked weekly to see if he's gotten into any trouble.

@LuxuryTravelMom
Ok, Kate Gosselin is in the house. She is thin and looks great. This should be interesting.

@LuxuryTravelMom
Kate Gosselin says she has only 15-20 hours of help per week. Not sure I believe her.

@LuxuryTravelMom
Some real honesty from @kateplusmy8 learning to let go of being so tough. @KatieShow

@LuxuryTravelMom
@xxxxxxx she's pretty tan. I have to admit, she looks good. I can't find time to workout with 4, how does she do it with 8?

@LuxuryTravelMom
Good job @katiecouric asking @Kateplusmy8 why she doesn't just go back to nursing. Says she can't afford it. Hmm.

‏@LuxuryTravelMom
@katiecouric asking about the book. @Kateplusmy8 says she's "advised not to say anything about it" - she has lawyers on it.

‏@LuxuryTravelMom
Hey tweeps, @katiecouric says she's asking the tough questions because her twitter followers asked her to. @katieshow. #loveher

@LuxuryTravelMom
They've moved on to Coupon Cabin-back to the soft stuff. Katie did not take it easy on her though. You'll be proud. @KatieShow

@LuxuryTravelMom
Thank goodness we're moving on to @DanceMoms the whole @Kateplusmy8 stressed me out. Now I have to read that damn book. @katieshow

@LuxuryTravelMom
@SuzeW718 @SchmeckyGirl @Kateplusmy8 Yes, she was clearly not going to answer the tough questions, but @katiecouric asked them.



Kate is a twit said...

She's probably on the phone with her lawyers trying to get the part about the book cut from the show.

From the live tweets, my estimation is that the taping was about 1hr 15min. An hour show is usually about 45min show, 15 min commercials. So the show definitely has to make cuts somewhere.

Thank you to @LuxuryTravelMom for providing us with what was actually going on in the interview.

Monrovia said...

Jane - awww, shucks. Well, I get busy, what with being eight different people. But I try!

Anonymous said...

So JW was kind enough to send me a copy of the book, which I've been trying to open in the Kindle for PC app, but every time it tells me that it's unable to open it and to delete it and redownload it. I tried converting the file with Calibre, which doesn't work because of DRM encoding, which I tried to remove with another app, which still didn't work! Any tips, anyone?

I think she's luxuriating in nice accommodations in NYC and, dumb as she is, even she knows not to post that she's eating out at fancy restaurants and getting her hair fried at Ted Gibsons, especially since one of her last tweets was about discount haircuts at Penney's.

I wonder who her handler is now -- is it just Skeeve or is Julie still around?

Can't she just say..."I'm financially secure and don't have to work at the moment"...NO...because that would blow her whole schtick about being a struggling mom...

Oh sorry I read "changes" as "charges." I'm still rubbing sleep from my eyes! :)

New Hair style? Kate must have went to NYC yesterday and had her hair done. If you look at the pics of her with the twins and the above. Notice her collar bone is sticking out, that means she has lost a lot of weight. You lose weight from the top down. This also proves her boobs are not real, cause, your boobs(real ones) also get smaller, when you lose weight. Your but is the last place you lose any weight.

You mean tell the truth? And also tell the truth that she does't want to do something mediocre she just wants to keep being famous?

I mean remember when she was tweeting about how she made wise investments? Why can't she just live off those and do nursing quietly?

AuntieAnn said...

What's left for Kate to talk about? Not that there ever was in the first place but...

Besides the book that's finally bringing to light what a horrible excuse for a human being she is, what on earth could there possibly be about her that even merits an appearance on a talk show anymore?

A few additional tweets:

@PMKids_Hater @SuzeW718 @sammiemyami @popems42 @katiecouric @Kateplusmy8 she really does come off nicely in an interview.

TLC stinks said...

You have to remove the DRM encoding. I tried to open the book just with Calibre but it is DRM protected. You can research for solutions on the internet how to remove the DRM encoding. I don't have access to my laptop and I don't want to mess up my husband's desktop with some free download. If any of you saved it on your hard drive or onto a disc, you should try to open the file. I bet you can't. I gave up. Can you just print it off the kindle?

Parent In Lancaster County said...

Why does the article say no charges have been filed? Or is it old.

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

It doesn't say that: "No changes to the foster care system are expected despite a 3-year-old girl being near death, her foster father behind bars and a state investigation."

That was yesterday. Today's story states the actual charges and place of incarceration.



Jumping In said...

Bringing my post over from the last thread.....

Well, I will watch just to see how tough Katie Couric's questions were to Kate. The live blogger sums up what is so wrong with our fascination with the world of celebrity. Kate looks "thin", Kate looks "great", Kate works out, wow! So, does looking good mean she automatically gets a pass on her bad behaviour, I certainly hope not.

However, the blogger does acknowledge a squirm-factor, and was pleased when they moved on. AND Katie Couric brought the book up, so kudos to her, she tried, and she put it out there on national television. I just hope the question of the book went something like this......."there is an online book your lawyers have pulled and it talks about your abuse of your 8 children, IN YOUR OWN WORDS; would you like to comment on this book?" I hope the question about the book is a hard-ball.

Oh, and if we ever doubted Kate's insatiable appetite for fame, it was played out today. Kate would have had her pat-answer regarding the book given to her, but would rather be on television as an accused child-abuser than not at all!

Formerly Duped said...

Re: milestones etc

I think Kate said in her book that the kids were behind (as preemies often are) until about 16 mos. Some were delayed in speech, some in motor skills. Collin had a weaker side, Alexis was weak in her core muscles & slow in speech. Hannah was of course the best at everything. I used to think the kids looked a little bit lagging but some was due to the crossed eye thing that seems to have resolved plus their blank stares which we now know are likely due to fear.Now all at the top of their classes. In the RH book, she claimed M and C were way ahead in K, thinking of advancing them to 1st- they are near the cut-off. But I guess they didn't move up.It seemed like Kate did not want them to.

anger issues kate #27 - I've never seen that hairstyle from the promo photo admin has before. It really looks like a wig, not at all like the hair she had over the weekend with the twins on the iPhone expedition.

That promo clip is not from Katie Couric's show, I believe, but from some other show she was on. She did have that hair style before.

Brilliant observation. I mean seriously? Doing a talk show when a book has just been released detailing, in YOUR OWN WORDS, your abuse of your children.

Wow, just wow. The woman hasn't got a freakin' clue. The fact that she detailed the abuse at all speaks volumes to her narcissism. It's all about her, the kids are purely incidental.

If she was abused, and frankly I'm inclined to believe she was, she is so detached from her emotions that she just can't feel any empathy for her kids.

That, and her quick, extremely violent temper, makes her very, very dangerous.

Scary stuff.

If you've saved the book file to a disc, will the DRM code also have to be removed in order for it to open on another PC where the book has not been downloaded?

Calibre would not let me convert to pdf. Error message said DRM protected. Kindle file format for me was .azw3 and Calibre claims to be able to convert that to pdf. I easily transferred the book files off Kindle into my documents and that's as far as I got. Too complicated.

SuziQ said...

This live tweeting/blogging feed from @LuxuryTravelMom is one of the things that I absolutely love about Twitter. Now we will get to see what was cut from the show when it airs later!

I have not read Robert Hoffman's book, but I'm disgusted and appalled by the quotes that I've read here about it. Oops, guess I should clarify! Disgusted and appalled of Kate Gosselin NOT Robert.

I was one of those people that defended the show and family in the beginning. Yes, I saw what a bitch Kate was and realized that filming kids was probably not the best environment for them, but they were cute and the family seemed funny and sweet. THEN, I saw comments and references on ETSY forums to darker things happening, which led me to read Julie's blog, GWOP and then here.

I realized how horrible it would be for any child to grow up with this microscope on their lives and the lives of their family. All this blogging, tweeting, chats, etc is out in the public for the kids to read about in the future. Besides the fact that it's reality TV, but not even a real reality, like a documentary would be. The Gosselin parents really screwed all this up and for lack a better phrase, this is all just one big giant clusterfuck!

Kate Gosselin is willfully ignorant about child rearing. What did you honestly think was going to happen when you gave birth to 6 children with twins in the house?! Of course things will be chaotic, but the way to deal with it was NOT to exert complete control and creating a dictatorship!

She needed some SERIOUS parenting classes. Especially pertaining to potty training and discipline. I'm shocked by how she treated those poor boys during potty training, admitting in her own journals and in her own words that she spanked them for having accidents. ANY parenting book book or guide will tell you that is a huge no no and will cause reprecussions for them later on in life. Also, in my experience, boys take a bit longer to potty train than girls. There is not a set schedule or time frame either - you take cues from the child themselves! Oh, and I can't believe that she would actually admit via journal to "spanking" them with an object (spoon/stick or otherwise). Again, no child expert or book would EVER advise that as a good discipline method. She just sounds like an absolute monster!

I sincerely hope that all the Gosselin children can afford therapy in the future because they will probably need lots of it!

Kate should have been grateful that her kids were born healthy but she sure seems put upon by all of them, I guess it's a good thing that they have a father in their lives that is seemingly loving and caring.

TLC stinks said...

Kate is a twit, what we need here is a computer geek on this blog. Wish I was. All I know is that it's not as simple as just downloading the book file and then opening the file to read the book. It makes sense Kindle would protect their books.

Sweet Tart said...

I appreciated the tweets about the actual taping, and it will be interesting to see which parts actually make it to the final version. I'm sorry she was allowed on the show, because it just feeds her already over-blown ego. But the silver lining is that she was away from the children. Any time the children have away from their mother is a good thing. For that reason alone, I wish she'd get some job that would take her far away, all the time.

As to not being able to afford going back to work - why does she persist in lying? Why not just say something like, "When the show took off, I made the decision to hire a very smart financial team. They were able to help me wisely invest and save the money made during those years, so I don't need to work until after the children are grown."

Oh right - she already cried poor on national tv, sniffling about a purse full of bills she allegedly couldn't pay. And she continues to grift gift cards and gifts from her tweeties who can ill afford it.

Hey y'all! Did you know that one of Discovery/TLC's trade secrets is that they promote and protect a child abuser, because they care more about money than about protecting children? But don't tell, it's a secret. Ooops, I wasn't supposed to say that.

Hey, you hear the one about the lady and the yogurt? It calls into question everything about Robert's book. Yeah, that's the ticket. Ignore the lady behind the curtain beating her children, refusing to get them proper medical care, and starving the family dog. Please refocus your attention on the lady and the yogurt! That's the crucial issue here folks. Oh and yeah, Jon is 50% to blame. So there.

I saved it to disc, and also emailed it to myself and it opens both ways. BUT I already have the book on my PC. Which is probably why it will open for me, but most likely will not open for anyone who doesn't already have the book. The coding is already on my PC.

I don't have another computer(i.e. laptop) that doesn't have the book, so I don't know if the disc will work anywhere else.

You're right-Kindle would most like protect the file, to prevent it being shared.

Sweet Tart said...

On the potty training issue: I was told by my son's pediatrician that boys can often take longer to be physically ready for potty training than girls. It's not simply a matter of explaining to the child how to use a toilet. Their bodies have to physically mature to the point where they feel the need "to go" and then connect the dots to make it to the potty in time. (I'm vastly simplifying the process but that's sort of it in a nutshell.)

I tried potty training around age 2, but my son was resistant and not ready. So I backed off. When he started preschool at age 3, he saw the other kids using the toilet. One week-end, he said he wanted regular big boy underpants. I was worried about accidents. Only one, and not even during that week-end. It was the easiest potty training (no training involved) ever. No bed wetting, no tears, no bribing with candy, no pull ups. Anyway - it breaks my heart every time I think of Kate humiliating and hurting her boys when they physically weren't able to meet her expectations. Cruel, heartless woman.

I wasn't planning on purchasing the book, since I don't have a Kindle, but a poster here was kind enough to tell us that you don't have to have one!

I am no computer whiz(no lie!), but this is easy to do.
If you downloaded the book to your PC, you had to download the kindle app for our pc (I assume you did this).

Ok, assuming you bought the e-book AND downloaded the kindle app for PC's.

to keep my copy on another source, this is what I did.

1. don't know if it's necessary, but I turned off the internet.
2. insert a flash drive into a computer port. These are memory sticks. You can buy them at big box stores or a computer store. I bought mine from ebay. (I bought a 16mg for less than 20.)
3.Next, RIGHT CLICK on the Kindle Icon located on your desk top.
4. Click on SEND TO
5. Click on DVD RAM DRIVE (D:)

it shouldn't take but a few minutes, but all I had on mine was the sample book and the e-book (I deleted the free books).
------------------
Done.

I cranked up my other pc, downloaded the kindle for pc app, and inserted my flash drive....and there's my book, opened to the page I last read.

Very easy to do. Flash drives are cheap, also a good way to share files, pics, videos, music. My junior high kids have to have a flash drive for their science class.

We were lucky. My daughter was three and I figured it was time. I told her she was going to be able to wear "good girl panties." She told me no, that she liked diapers, I told her fine, if she liked diapers so much, she was going to change her own. She did just that. Within a week, she was tired of it, put on her "good girl panties" and she was trained. Never an accident, no tears, no humiliation...just praise that she accomplished this all on her own -- when she was ready!

So what is AW's motive for inserting himself in all of this? Jealousy, promoting his own book, further trashing of Jon? I don't see how this whole thing involves him at all and I have no doubt that he's the "source close to the situation."

I think that perhaps he needs to know that taking the high road in all of this would have done him far more good than sticking his nose where it clearly doesn't belong. I guess that "true colors" come out in situations such as this.

Silimom said...

Formerly Duped - Re M & C and Kindergarten:

My impression reading the book was that they were in a public school Kindergarten at first and compared to those kids were a year advanced. The public school was considering advancing them to First Grade or just giving them advanced work. Kate felt, though, that the girls, especially Mady, didn't have the maturity to move up a grade.

That is why she wanted to get them into LCDS. They could be in K but the curriculum would be a year ahead of the public school.

It's actually a pretty common scenario. I taught at a private school for 6 years and we had several kids who fit that mold - not mature yet but needed to be challenged academically.

Personally, we've always had our kids in public school and we supplement their learning at home through local trips to museums, conversation, reading, etc. I guess we just make the time to do those things. We're just mediocre, I guess.

She has burned so many bridges that all she has left is an inner tube with a leak in it.

I'll bet they are too.. Which brings me right back to the question: What's left? There is nothing interesting about Kate Gosselin and there never has been. It was her ill treatment of everyone around her that grabbed attention, certainly nothing else. Now that her CHILD ABUSE is seriously out in the open and gathering momemtum, that is all people will want to talk about. And since she doesn't want to talk about BEING AN ABUSER, there is nothing left to talk about. It has come full circle. She's finished and by her own doing.

I hope someone is watching out for those kids because even in the few hours she sees them in a week, she will be taking this out on them.

Pink and Auntie -- I got a security message from Google a few weeks ago, too. If I remember correctly, the phrase "unusual activity" was used. They required me to set a new password that was more complicated. Once it was set up, I was good to go. I am glad that Google is looking out for us.

OT alert:

October isNational Disability Employment Awareness Month

“The 2012 National Disability Employment Awareness theme promotes the benefits of a diverse workforce that includes talented workers with disabilities.”

According to Assistant Secretary of Labor for Disability Employment Policy Kathy Martinez, “Employers who ensure that inclusive workplace polices and practices are woven into the fabric and culture of the organization create an environment that encourages all workers – including those of us with disabilities – to work to their full capacity and contribute fully to the organization’s success.”

Read the news release announcing the 2012 theme at: http://www.dol.gov/opa/media/press/odep/ODEP20120857.htm

wowser said...

she may be still paying someone to represent her, but I think she is losing the clout and so are her handlers in being able to control what is asked during an interview. Katie wants to be on tv IN ANY CAPACITY so I think she will be risking each interview and what is asked because at this point, with everything out there on her, if the interviewer can't ask the difficult questions, why bother having her on at all? She has been so insignificant and hasn't done ANYTHING worth mentioning in over a year. The interviewers would consider her dead air at this point.

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

That's probably true in many private schools, but is not the case in the school that the kids attend. In fact, the attendance policy gets tougher and tougher as the student advances in grade levels. Maybe Kate THOUGHT she could dictate schedules and many absences would be excused, but I think she had her eyes opened very quickly.

The school certainly didn't give her any special treatment when it came to making it perfectly clear that two of the children needed to be removed from the school system. It wasn't her decision; their removal was mandatory.

Ex Nurse said...

I just got caught up on the previous posts, and want to comment on some of topics.

I am confused on the differing statements about how Robert got the outer/had drive etc. However he got them, my question is this: Are we to believe that Kate did not have even the most rudimentary security protecting her most important files--contracts and negotiations, journal entries detailing abuse, emails, etc? Not even a password?With her crack security guy and genius computer wiz of husband, people crawling through her house at all hours of the day--not even a password?

Just not credible. So, if she had a password, how did Robert get by it? All that I've seen addressed is regarding the physical computer/drives. So, it could be a true statement that Jon was not involved in obtaining the information, while Jon provided Robert with the password to access the files. Jon was probably the one to set up her password. I suppose that Kate was so busy masterminding, she couldn't be bothered to learn how to change her password. There is a wonderful karmic sense that she hoisted herself on her own pitard (have always wanted to use this phrase!) due to her entitlement, superiority and a good old whopping dose of hubris.

A long way of saying that I am certain that Jon provided the password. JMO, of course.

15- 20 hours a week of help with kids gone about 9 hours a day?? Apparently she doesn't have to take care of the at all. Who the heel needs that much help with children their ages? She also "can't afford to go back to nursing" What?? Such bullshit. I guess it makes more sense to stay unemployed. Clearly the real reason is she's to lazy. There is no way she gets more money at her lame coupon job than she would doing a few nursing shifts a week. Nursing has very flexible hours and shift and pays well. I'm a nurse and was divorced with four young children at the time and it worked out perfect while they were in school.

Who is Gold Rush Todd?
------------------------------------------------
An interesting character. He is just a guy who worked for his fathers business all his life. The business was tanking due to the economy. He talked his way into Discovery backing his idea for a TV show about gold mining.

It's a bunch of guys making a lot of mistakes learning the business while playing with big Tonka toys. Todd openly doesn't get along with the producer. This feeling is shared by the producer. One of the disagreements was over the shows decision to include real professional mining operations in the final product, thus cutting back on Todd's air time.

Sweet Tart, I enjoy your comments upthread.
Ms Kreider will continue to be on media from time to time because of the trainwreck factor. Does she not realize this? People love you when you are on top, but when you are on your way down the celebrity status ladder, people love to watch the descent. Has something to do with the Greek concept of hubris. If things seem to be too good, if you are too proud and disdainful, fate or the gods will arrange a fall. Ms Kreider s continued hubris is just begging for a bigger smack down from the universe. When it happens, folks will be entertained because of the flash back scenes of her nagging Jon or being mean to Saint Tony!

Heide said...

My dad was not a perfect parent. There were times that he was unfair with me and spanked me inappropriately (in my opinion). But he was my hero - my soft place to fall - the one who was kind to me. I loved him. I knew I could go to him for comfort when I was having a hard time.

My mom wasn't nearly as bad as Kate, but she wasn't the loving kind parent that my dad was.

So I guess I don't understand the negativity toward Jon for making some mistakes, but overall being a loving parent. It's pretty obvious those kids love him and are happy with him. I just really relate to that experience.

Flight of the Kiwi said...

Well, I must say, there a two things (really more but two top this bout) that one probaby should NOT do during a depression episode:

Plenty of people set their computers to auto login. That's not uncommon. That's assuming he found the PC itself. Otherwise, it isn't hard to get access to files on a hard drive if you know what you are doing. If they were copied on a CD, that's even easier.

"A long way of saying that I am certain that Jon provided the password. JMO, of course."

Good point, I never even thought about passwords. It is interesting.

Still, I have to think that in the end, it's sort of irrelevant.

I know that if I was a divorced parent and knew my ex was abusing my kids, having tried all other means of protecting them and failing, I would do ANYTHING to help them.

It really pisses me off that the sheeple are bleating non stop that "if they were really being abused, why didn't Jon do anything?"

How on God's green earth do they know that he didn't? Admin has confirmed that Jon has gone to court repeatedly to intervene and got shot down by a judge every time.

Then, as to confirm their stupidity, they turn around and argue that Jon's a bad guy because he gave Mr. Hoffman the computer drive.

Really, idiots? You can't have it both ways.

You know what? If Jon did (and I have absolutely no knowledge of such, I'm just saying), much like the password scenario, I say kudos to him.

Those kids' best chance of success is to know that someone TRIED to help them. This will be able to help them understand that the abuse was not their fault and that there were people who saw it and tried to stop it.

Believe me, as a survivor of physical and sexual abuse, nothing adds insult to the injury like know that people knew what was going on and did nothing.

That's why I admire Admin for starting this blog and not backing down when threatened by Kate's lawyers. Same goes for Mr. Hoffman.

Those kids will NEED to know that there were many, many people who spoke out on their behalf. It's their best hope of overcoming the effects of the abuse.

Kate'sUnsafe said...

I bet she had the password on a post it note that got thrown out with the rest of the trash. She does love post it notes.

Jennifer said...

People, I work in IT and there's no evidence for Jon giving anyone a password. You are all assuming Robert sat down at a computer and read files on it. There are many different ways to get access to data like this that don't involve any passwords.

Kirkland said...

Now that the book has been released, I find it hard to believe any legitimate business entity would have anything to do with her. Would Coupon Cabin actually hire her today knowing she's an alleged child abuser? I think not.

Yes, her career was already in the tank, but she seriously ruined it now. She doesn't stand a chance now of being a spokesperson, for any company.

All the things she's being doing this past year, i.e. radio station appearance, charity runway model, etc. are no longer an option for her. In my opinion anyway.

Think about it. If she were hired to represent anybody....that company would immediately be tainted with her stench. Why would anybody want that?

Just my opinion. What do you think? Does she really stand a chance now of anybody hiring her to represent them?

capecodmama said...

sweet tart...59 We ran into the same issue when we potty trained my grandson. Both of my girls were trained before they were two and it was easy. With my grandson, he showed no interest in training so we waited until the summer after he turned three (his birthday is in April). It was a disaster so we stopped. He started preschool that fall wearing his pull-ups. By October he was trained as far as urinating (by seeing the kids in preschool line up for bathroom break) but no interest in training for the bowel movement. He was wearing big boy underwear all day and night (no accidents). He would tell us when he had to poop and we just told him go put on a pull-up and hide (he liked to hide when he pooped). Then he would come to us when he was done. He finally trained last month for the bowel movements. He is almost 4 1/2. He took his time and we were okay with it. Kate is just a turd.

Passwords can be cracked. Actually, anything on a personal computer can be cracked as long as there is a motive and a bit of knowledge. On this same page someone was talking about cracking the DRM on an e-book.

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

Not buying what? I said that as the years progress, the attendance policy becomes tougher. In fact, by the time they get to middle and upper school, you just don't take off whenever you darn well feel like it. There are academic penalties that are put in place. I doubt if Kate knew this. She was just looking at the present.

Those kids were very young when they did the Australia trip, but they also had to make up all homework, and without going into what is required if a trip is taken during the school year (such as permission, planning, conferences) let's just say that when they got back they had to be on track with the rest of the class. It was not just a matter of..."we'll be gone for a few weeks, see ya."

Paula said...

It's a bad thing, I know, but we don't have a password set on our home computer. I have one on my laptop, but for the PC the entire family uses, nope. My kids were always forgetting the password and locking it up, so we took it off.

But then the freebies would dry up! Kate has made a career out of getting things for free - everything from gift cards to beach house rentals to coffee makers. People and companies would stup sending her freebies and gifts if they knew she was independently wealthy.

I spent the weeekend reading the book - I managed to download it before Amazon yanked it. It confirms all of the rumors that have been floating around these last few years - not just about the abuse and neglect of the kids, but also how she deliberately became pregnant with multiples in order to get rich and famous. She is a thoroughly despicable person.

PatK said...

I'd have to say that Kate's people had to pre-approve Katie Couric's question about the book, as they do all questions posed to Kate. I'm sure they allowed it because they had given Kate the correct response. There's no way KC would have been able to ask if it weren't pre-approved.

mscatie said...

From the book:

Kate’s journal was found by me while combing through documents and computer discs and files that she threw in the trash, the day after she threw Jon out of the apartment above the garage for good.

No debates about the journal’s authenticity need to be held because on the same computer discs, which are in my possession for anyone to verify upon request, are close to 5,000 Gosselin family photos and many, many, many personal documents and momentos, including tax and business records, as well as personal and business contracts, all created, dated and burned to disc, years before I ever heard the name Kate Gosselin.

mscatie-Thanks for printing that excerpt. Robert doesn't mention hard drives, he mentions "discs". The ROL article specifically states "hard drives".

"Jon Gosselin secretly gave the author of a controversial new anti-Kate book computer hard drives containing his then-wife’s personal journal and confidential information, a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com exclusively."

Oh oh, AW, do you feel stupid now?

Also want to mention--If you go to the main CC page-the only box mentioning Kate is about the RnR Runs. The one that used to be there about Kate's blog is gone. Kate's blogs are still there, but no link to them on the main page.

"Runs" is such a bad choice of words. But marathon is dishonest.

As for the school they should have just kicked them out for the Australia shenanigans. If every school stood up to Kate maybe these kids wouldn't have been so used and exploited. She would have no choice but to send them to school instead of film them, or homeschool which she knew would be bad pr. She would have been stuck.

------------------
Which makes it much more likely that someone else set up her user account for her--I.e. Jon. How many times have posters said they were waiting for a techie friend or family member computer to help? Setting up the user account and password happens before accessing any program files. I don't think it tells you that you don't have to fillin the password field--it is there when you set up your user. If you don't enter a password, most operating systems will pop up a warning that the computer isn't secure. It isn't a case of not taking an extra step--She would have had to have consciously made the choice to skip it.

Are you really worried - what if she blacklists my show? Who else can her PR person represent if they've stooped as low as Kate Gosselin.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I'm not following your point ex nurse. Lots of people have spouses set up their computer or even best buy will do it for you. We have 3 laptops at our house and only one has a password, the Mac. And it didn't always. I don't like the hassle of a password each time and am willing to take the risk even if that's not a smart move. The point being its not uncommon for people to be lax about security. Just like people forget to lock up sometimes.

Pulling The Wool said...

Weren't the little ones in Kindergarten when they took time from school to go to Australia? I thought they missed something like five school days at the end of their break. I seriously doubt that during that time, Kindergarten kids were learning-delayed by missing five days. In many schools, in the days back after an extended Christmas holiday there is not too much done other than to get them back in the routine, especially in Kindergarten. Should they have missed this much school? I wouldn't pull my kids out for five days at a stretch, but this was Kate, and school was secondary to filming (where the money was).

I think that maybe Kate believed that these kids would be filmed through graduation, and thought that because they were in a private school, it would be easier to pull them out whenever she felt like it.

There also were rumors going around the Beth and Bob paid for the twins' entire school tuition. According to Kate's journal, this wasn't true. They got financial aid, and she was relieved that all she had to pay for was the balance, plus the bus cost. There is no mention that the Carsons paid for any of this...or was it, and I missed it?

terri said...

I guess Kate is still trying her best to get back on tv. She admitted to Katie that yes she would do a dating show. I personally think she is delusional if she thinks anybody would back her for a show of any kind. Also, I just knew she would bring on the crocodile tears, talking about how much she's been through. I think she's crying because she knows it's only a matter of time before the entire sordid details of her abuse, greed, and grifting are exposed for all to see.

So you punish the kids for the sins of the mother...the only place where they felt safe and protected from an abuser?
******
I disagree with this logic and think because many people think this way, Kate could get away with anything if she pleases.
IF the school kicked out the kids because of Kate's shenanigans in taking advantage of their better nature, it is NOT the school's fault. It is KATE'S fault.
Kate and Kate alone would be punishing the kids because she WILLFULLY AND REPEATEDLY BROKE THE RULES!
How is this hard to get?
If rules are broken and/or constantly abused, where preferential treatment is given and worse, expected, who suffers? THE REST.
If the G kids suffer separation from the school due to Kate's abusive actions, it is not the school's fault, it is not our fault, it is Kate's fault.
Kate's and Kate's alone.
Sorry, but this really sticks in my craw.
Dana Hoffman's blog got shut down, SHUT DOWN, because Kate invoked the children. How dare anyone question her methods of providing, even if it was unfair to the REST of the community! Even if it is dishonest. Even if someone else might stand to lose at her gain (think toilet paper-gate).
Let them all suffer, everyone else follow the rules. If you dare stop Kate from making money in the way that SHE deems, no matter who loses, or gets taken advantage of, or gets less because she got more, then you are taking money out of her babies' mouths.
This, exactly this, was the genesis of Teflon Kate.
*off soapbox!*

Here we go with the lies and waterworks. I'm so sick of her acting like she has 80 kids rather than 8.

TLC stinks said...

Of course she promotes herself. She is a narcissist.

Berks resident said...

Her neck and chest are right and blotchy. She's a nervous wreck. Also croc tears, which is no big surprise.

Also, I just knew she would bring on the crocodile tears, talking about how much she's been through.
*********
I call it last night! She cried again huh? For Kate, I'm assuming.
If it were me (and thank goodness it's not), I'd be sure to have my shit together so I could comport myself and avoid breaking down before appearing on tv again.
It. has. been.3. fricking. years. woman.

She didn't cry. It was more like choked up and looked totally fake. It came up when Katie mentioned Jon.

TLC stinks said...

I remember reading that someone said she takes the kleenex and presses hard on her eyes to make the fake tears come. Does she have a kleenex?

Wow, that's rich!
Thanks for sharing! I'm not going to watch but thanks to Twit et. al. who are taking the bullet.

berks resident said...

ick so sorry, neck and chest are RED and blotchy!

I bet there will be wine in the limo for the ride home! And Steve will comfort her.

Kate (on Katie) says that every single night at dinner the kids ask her why she isn't dating. I'm sure that this is the first thing that comes up. Isn't this foremost in the minds of kids whose parents are divorced? Not school, not homework, not playing! Yeah, sure it is!

Tucker's Mom said...

For all watching, Kate's twitter pick (taken by that burly guy) looks like she's got more face work done?

SeeSaw said...

Watched the first part of the segment. Tried to pretend it was someone else so I could be objective.
If I knew nothing about Kate at all my assessment would have been charming, likeable and even a little funny. She's had training.

Michelle said...

She's a nervous mess! The red blotchy neck is a dead giveaway. I should know, because I'm a fellow sufferer of that problem!

Beautifully said! What people dont understand is that kate abuses other folks then hides behind children to avoid the consequences of her actions. And people fall for it over and over again!! And then act like they dont get it.

SeeSaw said...

Of course, when asked about her and Jon she said she's always been the same. Lots of implied throwing under the bus. But it's subtle.

TLC stinks said...

I cannot imagine any child of divorce parents asking when mom is going to start dating...that is a LIE. Kids want mom and dad together.

This is code-speak for "Give me a dating show! You're taking away a new daddy by not giving me a show!".
You see, it's all for the kids...
Mommy, how far did you run?
Mommy, how was your yoga?
Mommy, do you have a boyfriend?
Mommy, pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease date!

Is ANYONE believing this?

I agree. She's also had tons of work done on her face.

Pam said...

~ She says the same eff'ing thing EVERY.SINGLE.TIME she's on a talk show! Nothing original at all.


~ Her hair looks disgusting. Looks so greasy...ewww.


~ Did y'all see her neck start breaking out in an angry rash during the first segment? Looked like hives.

~ Never have I ever seen anyone LIE as much as Kate Gosslin.

TLC stinks said...

Could it just be because of the weight loss?

Would love to know Couric's reaction to this. Couric's husband Jay (I believe) passed away several years ago from colon cancer, leaving little children behind. Katie certainly can relate. I wonder if their kids begged Katie to date and get another daddy.
I'm thinking not.

Pants On Fire said...

LIAR! You are not supporting 8 kids all by yourself. And you would not "honestly" hand over your paycheck being a nurse over to your babysitter. Your kids are in school/bus 9 hours a day. You just said that you have only 15/20-ish hours of help a week. If this is true (liar) then nurses must not make much $$ these days. Liar!!

The show is coming on here in 5 minutes. I will take one for the team, take notes and report back. I do hope that Kate is the first segment.
**********************

U R my heeeroh! (no snark!)

mamaK said...

I think it is more acurate to say that the kids are at the dinner table asking every night why mommy and daddy arent together anymore. If they ask anything at all.

SeeSaw said...

Hahaha. Second segment Katie is hitting her hard with questions and Kate's is ummmm and uhhhhh and almost swallowing her tongue.
Way to soft ball the first half Katie and then move in for the kill!

Ex Nurse -- As others have pointed out,there are ways to crack a password. IIRC, there is even software that will help crack a password. However, knowing our KK's narcissism, IF she password protected her computer, and that's a big if IMO, it was probably something simple like kateplus8 or kateplusmy8. OTOH, Jon may have provided the password to Robert, as you surmised.

KK is so full of it. "can't afford to go back to nursing"! What a crock! There are a number of jobs she could do that use her nurse's training and knowledge. Some of them she could even do from, home. Jobs like medical coding for an insurance company. Reviewing medical records for insurance companies, Workers Comp, disability claims, etc. She could work for an attorney that specializes in disability or personal injury, reviewing medical records. She could even do medical billing. All of those jobs would fit nicely into the kids' school schedule. The truth of the matter is, as we've stated here frequently, she's just too lazy to do a mediocre job

Just watched the interview because it comes on here in Florida at 2. I am repulsed because she actually tried the same teary-eyed quivering-lip "I'm the victim here" routine that we've seen so many times. I think KC's own feelings of repulsion were kind of evident...she asked her questions about "any guilt about what you've done to the kids by bringing the cameras into their daily lives"? and Kate said something like "all parents question some of their decisions" and KC said, "But that was a little more complex than whether or not to send them to day camp". Sickening.....can't wait to see what others think after they see it....and damn if she didn't get in another plug for a dating show!!! WTF???? Paula (retired teacher)

emschick1128 said...

I can't stand her!! She is such a liar. I'm one of 9 kids and my mother never felt the need to act like we were in the military

Yep. Why should she be allowed to take her kids out of school when no one else can without severe consequences?

Yeah, it's better if the kids can stay in their school. So follow the rules, and keep them at school instead of pulling them out for filming.

She's not the only person with 8 kids. Do other moms with 8 kids get to break the rules too? Just because they have 8 kids?

Do the rules say that they apply to everyone but Kate? Or do they say that they apply to everyone but moms with 8 kids?

PatK said...

Meh. Same old, same old.

How many more years can this be?

mamaK said...

Wow! She did get some hard questions! Why didn't she follow the "can't afford to work cuz of daycare" with a "but the kids are in school all day now right?" Ugh!

emschick1128 said...

I've been divorced for 17 years and my kids would still like us to get back together. No way are her kids asking every night for her to get a boyfriend. Full of shit as usual

I am actually starting to believe it Tuckers Mom. Yes, that is what the kids say first thing at the dinner table.

After YEARS of getting their faces slapped, sent from the table and getting beaten into the other room all for speaking non-approved words, yeah, they are asking about all things mommy at dinner. At least that way they go to bed less hungry and less bruised.
